The Times today begins publication of a daily Ventura County Edition.
Local news and advertising will appear in Part B seven days a week.
A new weekly section called Ventura County Life will debut on Thursday.
"Our primary goal is to provide the most complete source of daily countywide news coverage available anywhere," said Jeffrey S. Hall, president of The Times' Valley and Ventura County Editions.
The edition will be produced by a staff of reporters, photographers and editors in Ventura and printed at the Times Valley plant in Chatsworth.
