Ventura County Grows Business commented: Did You Know?: Kevin Costner was a Ventura County resident for a period of time. He lived with his family in Upper Ojai, in a house on Topa Lane, when he was 6 and where he also sold roadside apricots. "I logged a lot of time at the Ventura Pier," Costner said. "I'd go up into the Sespe above Santa Paula, to the Punch Bowls. I hunted in the bottomlands." He went to Saticoy Elementary School, Cabrillo Middle School and Buena High School, where he played baseball, basketball and other sports. When asked where he's from, Mr. Costner always responds with, "Ventura County." (Source: Ventura County Star) (Posted April 17, 2017)

Dena Popara commented: I have GOT to tell y'all that my mom, friend Lesli, and I met Kevin Costner in Ventura, CA, which is his hometown. We were sitting at a booth in the Busy Bee Restaurant when he walked past us to take two of his young sons to the rest room. Since a key was needed for entry, the boys ran back to the front counter to get it while Kevin stood within arm's reach of me, watching them. I said "Hi" and when he turned to look at me, I stuck out my hand and said, "My name is Dena." He shook my hand and said, "I'm Kevin." I then introduced him to my mom and Lesli and he shook their hands, too. At this time, Lesli said to him, "I used to be sooooo in love with you--but I'm not anymore." Kevin chuckled and then went off to the back of the restaurant with his boys. Soon the kids went racing past us toward their table but Kevin stopped at our booth. He leaned over our table, put his face close to Lesli's and asked, "Why don't you love me anymore?" I loved the look on Lesli's face as she groped for something to say and finally mustered, "I left you to better hands." Kevin laughed and walked off. Later, talking to the waitress, she said the restuarant's manager got Kevin to sign a picture they had of him playing with his band a few blocks down the road, though the picture wasn't back on the wall yet. He was the real deal. (Posted December 21, 2016)
