Our Ojai cam is the latest victim in the wake of the July 2014 water main break that flooded the Ojai Playhouse and Jester. The building's owner, who has donated the spot for the camera and its related equipment for many years, shut off the utilities needed to operate the camera pending a resolution of his effort to get Golden State Water Company to pay for the needed repairs. We appreciate your patience as we look for a suitable temporary location.

When a football team loses 28-0, it is rarely considered a step in the right direction. However, for the Nordhoff High School (NHS) football program, its Oct. 7 loss to the Oak Park Eagles displayed a level of toughness and resilience the Rangers haven’t shown in recent years.
The Rangers suited only 20 players against the bigger, faster Oak Park squad and according to NHS head coach Lance Wiggins, only 16 were healthy enough to see live action. Despite being outnumbered, the Rangers gave Oak Park fits and proved Wiggins and his coaching staff have the team headed in the right direction.
