He is correct, that is the true Spanish pronounciation, however in So Cal as
in other western states where Spanish names dominate, there is the actual
Spanish pronounciation and the non-Spanish corruption of the word, naturally
this occurs with other languages as well.  Camarillo is just west of
Conejo-rabbit Valley as one approaches El Pacifico-Pacific Ocean and
Buenaventura-Ventura County on one's way to Santa Barbara-Saintess Barbara,
California. Here in Denver and Colorado(red) the Spanish names take on some
bizarre pronounciations.
