More than a hundred young people from across California and Nevada just wrapped up a week of training on the South Coast to become firefighters.

Two people have been found dead inside a South Coast home, and authorities believe it may be a murder-suicide.  Ventura County Sheriff's officials say investigators are looking for clues at the house located on the 2000 block of Paseo Noche in Camarillo. The bodies of a man and a woman in their 70s were discovered in a bedroom by their daughter just before midnight.

"We believe that whatever parties were involved are in the house," said Sgt. John Franchi. "We don't believe that we have any suspect on the loose."

City of Ventura

Today is the 150th birthday of the city of Ventura. The city, then called San Buenaventura, was incorporated in 1866. That's more than 80 years after Father Junipero Serra founded California’s ninth mission there. The city’s century and a half anniversary calls for celebration today.

Hundreds of high school students from across California and China wrapped up a mega robotics competition in Ventura this weekend.

Inside a crowded arena at Ventura College, the focus was on the field. Robots -- controlled by students -- catapult balls, cross over obstacles and scale tower walls in this Medieval-themed competition organized by FIRST Robotics.

Volunteers spent part of the weekend building homes for low-income families in Santa Paula.

They sawed wood to lay down the foundation of a four-bedroom house; that home will soon belong to a struggling family.
