The best days of Ventura
by: Danny T.

I was here in Ventura in then 40's to present. Ventura was a wonderful place to live. Bean fields, Orange and lots of big tall beautiful Eucalyptus trees lined the roads. Then one day they started cutting down them big tall Eucalyptus trees. Then the bugs came because the trees were replaced with thousands of ugly dirty palm trees. We had to spray the bugs because we had cut down the Eucalyptus trees and the plants along the roads and freeways died due to the spraying. You see We sprayed the bugs but that killed the plants and the big beautiful butterfly's that fed off the plants but we still have the bugs and the ugly dirty palm trees. Should I go on?
