Reunion 805: We Rise Together

By Misty Hall

Ventura County has gone through some trying times in recent years with the Thomas, Hill, and Woolsey Fires, the Montecito debris flows, as well as the Borderline Bar & Grill tragedy. But these events have revealed something profound about our VC friends and neighbors: we rise together. We’ve stepped up to take care of one another in myriad ways — donating money and supplies, offering our services (of every kind), and even just sharing a hug with someone who lost everything.

We discovered that we share a lot more than a geographical region. We share a genuine spirit of goodwill, and a true eagerness to be of service to one another.

For Your Home

By Misty Hall

Designers have called For Your Home furnishings in downtown Ventura one of the best-kept secrets on the Central Coast. Step inside, and it’s easy to see why: their two-story, 16,000 sq. ft. showroom has a massive selection of items — appropriately — for your home.

But on a visit north, he fell in love with Ventura’s beaches and charming neighborhoods, and decided to move there.

It was the ideal location for Brian’s new business, Dreamweaver Waterbeds … which would eventually become For Your Home, offering California-style furnishings.

Robin Williams

LIV Sotheby’s International Realty

By Misty Hall

I first became familiar with the name Robin Williams way back in the early 2000s when I was writing sports articles. Back then, I only knew him as the guy who consistently ranked at, or very near, the top of the local golf leagues and tournaments. These days, Robin still knows his way around the course better than most (although he’s humble about his skill), but you’re more likely to find him showing houses as a Realtor or hanging out with his daughter, Josie.
