Hundreds of artists, and tens of thousands of visitors are headed to a South Coast landmark this holiday weekend for an art event which has become a more than three decade old tradition.

The artists are taking part in a street painting festival, with pavement substituting for canvas, and chalk taking the place of paint.

A Ventura County man is now facing a murder charge after the person he’s accused of setting on fire died.

Santa Paula Police say the victim of the May 13th attack died at a Los Angeles Hospital earlier this week. He had burns to more than 50% of his body. The victim’s name hasn’t been released yet.

Jorge Chavez was arrested for the attack in Santa Paula’s Veterans Park, which involved the use of a flammable liquid. He was initially facing charges ranging from assault with a deadly weapon, to aggravated mayhem. Chavez pled not guilty.

A small earthquake rocked parts of the South Coast Thursday morning.

The magnitude 3.3 quake occurred at 7:19 a.m. and was centered in the ocean 13 miles southwest of Thousand Oaks.  It was centered nearly seven miles below the ocean floor. No damage was reported.

Meanwhile, a magnitude 2.2 microquake occurred Wednesday afternoon in the Ventura County mountains. The 1:03 p.m. quake was centered 12 miles northeast of Ojai. Again, no damaged was reported.

This year marks the 20th anniversary of one of the biggest movie blockbusters of all time, and the 105th anniversary of the real life tragedy which inspired it.

Now, both the movie “Titanic,” and the history behind it are being commemorated in a new exhibition in Ventura County. The Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley is hosting “Titanic At The Reagan Library,” a 10,000 square foot special exhibition opening this holiday weekend.

We are bombarded with information, and data, but what does it mean?

One South Coast college will help students answer that question, by offering a new degree in data analytics.

Westmont College has created an interdisciplinary major which includes math, computer science, and business.

Westmont officials say the new major will help fill a growing demand for analysts who can help translate, and communicate the key points of data.
