A body found near a hiking trail may be that of a South Coast man who has been missing for a week.

Ventura County Sheriff’s officials say 65-year-old Clyde Miller hasn’t been seen since June 17th, and his disappearance was reported to the department on Thursday.

Ventura County Public Health officials say they are investigating an outbreak of a bacterial illness they’ve linked to a Camarillo restaurant.

Health officials say eight people who developed stomach cramps, diarrhea, and fever after eating at a Souplantation restaurant. The illness is called by a bacteria called Shingella. It’s highly contagious.

Some people exposed to it don’t get sick, and those who do become ill usually recover in a few days.

Tickets went on sale Friday for a Central Coast appearance for perhaps the biggest name in modern country music, and sold out in 30 seconds.

Garth Brooks is set to play at the California Mid-State Fair in Paso Robles July 27th, with the nearly 15,000 tickets gone in moments. Brooks was overwhelmed by the fan response to his concern, and on Twitter said “Wow-30 seconds. Are you kidding me? That means I owe you another one!”

Firefighters quickly stopped a brush fire on the Central Coast.

The 10 acre blaze started just after one p.m. Friday on the 4000 block of Oak Trail Road, near Los Olivos.

Firefighters were able to get it 50% contained in about 90 minutes. No structures were damaged. There’s no word yet on the cause of the blaze.
