"I’ve been coming to the Ojai Music Festival, off and on, for 20 years. Now, in 2015, I have the great privilege of being music director! Out of a dizzying range of possibilities, we are curating a festival that looks to the future without forgetting where we’ve been. Together with terrific artists and great friends including the International Contemporary Ensemble, red fish blue fish, Maya Beiser, Wu Man, and the San Diego based chamber ensemble, Renga, we’ll revisit classic works by Edgard Varèse, and Béla Bartók, and we’ll hear the emerging voices of Anna Thorvaldsdottir, Roland Auzet, and Lei Liang.

Sgt. Kevin Donoghue, Ojai Valley Station
I hope everyone's summer is off to a good start! We have been a little busy this month with the upcoming Ojai Valley Music Festival events, The Ojai Valley Marathon, the Ojai Wine Festival, and all of our normal patrol operations. Some of you have asked about recent tagging incidents in the Ojai, Oak View, and Casitas Springs areas. We have been investigating a known suspect who has been found to have tagged the letters "DTM" at over seventy five known locations. This investigation is on going and we are confident it will result in charges being filed with the District Attorney's Office.
EXCLUSIVE: VIEW, May 2014

It's 1979. I’m doing a phone repair at some rock stars house who’s named Glenn Frey. He was an Eagle drummer I think. All the giant amps and speakers stored in his garage from road shows all had ‘Eagles’ spray painted over them in giant stencils, so, he was a member or a hell of a burglar. Having made pals with him right off the bat I have his phone problems whipped so I start a discussion about his driveway concrete. With a bunch of kids, you hustle. So, if your dreaming of a bunch of kids, go for side jobs. Too much over time on weekly gigs kicks you right in the nut sack concerning those holding taxes.
