Commander tells farmers Navy wants to save land By Scott Hadly Ventura County Star (CA) May 23, 2008Sowing the seeds of future cooperation, the commander of Naval Base Ventura County told a group of local farmers Thursday that the Navy might be their best ally for protecting their fields from creeping development.
At an annual business meeting of the Ventura County Farm Bureau, Capt. Brad "Brick" Conners said both the Navy and farmers have an interest in preserving agricultural land from encroaching urban development.
Conners' keynote talk at the annual Farm Bureau meeting at Ventura's Pierpont Inn was a first. No one from the base has spoken to the group before, and he said it was part of a broader mission by him and his command staff to communicate with local leaders about the work they do.
