(Publisher's note) While parked on the southern side of the new bridge to take some photos, Wile E. Coyote trotted past in front of me, across the new road and down the railroad tracks, headed east. She looked to be in great condition. We in Fillmore sometimes forget we're located in a wild animal habitat. It's good to know - but keep your cats and dogs in a safe enclosure, Wile E. has to eat too.

Congratulations to Rene and Yesenia Perez. Their yard was selected as the Holiday Yard of the month of December, located at 910 Sespe Ave. They will receive a gift certificate from Otto & Sons Nursery for $40. Ari Larson from Fillmore Civic Pride and Fillmore City Council Member was on hand to surprise and congratulate Rene. He said they have never won anything before, and he was very grateful and excited to receive the honor.

They have lived in Fillmore since 2005, and they began to decorate about ten years ago. They try to add to their décor every year. There is a large Santa, a large Christmas tree, a nativity, penguins, polar bears, and lots of both white and colorful bulbs to give the home a festive atmosphere.

Rene said that because of COVID it was more important than ever to decorate and give families something bright and fun to take their mind off everyday worries. They enjoy seeing children smile and point at the décor.

The Perez’ family brings their inspiration from Mexico where family’s use this time of the year to visit with family via a tradition called Las Posadas.

Rene and Yesenia are passionate about their yard all year long and enjoy working outdoors as a team when deciding what to add and how to arrange the decorations.

The public is encouraged to take a ride and look at the house and the many others that have been decorated around town.

If you have any questions about Fillmore Civic Pride please contact Ari Larson 805.794.7590.

 


 
3-wheel adult tricycle missing from the El Dorado Mobile Home Park. The bike is similar to the one pictured with basket on back. It is owned by park resident Dennis, who is handicapped and uses it to ride around the park, greeting everyone. Dennis is well-known and liked in the park. To help some of the elderly residents he picks up their mail every day and delivers it to them ON HIS BIKE. While out on a ride last week he left it unattended for a few minutes outside the clubhouse and it was gone when he came out. We are asking everyone to watch for Dennis's bike around town and please call us if you spot it. This is a sweet young man who needs some good news for Christmas. You may call the Gazette at 805-524-2481 with any information.

American Pekin ducks (l-r) Pogo and Biggie enjoy hanging out in their Fillmore front yard with sisters Aliyah, 17, and Lupita, 14. The ducks are 6 months old and have been with the girls since they were 5 weeks old. The girls’ mother described the sisters as “good duck parents”. The Pekin or White Pekin is an American breed of domestic duck, raised primarily for meat, but don’t tell Pogo and Biggie. It is a mallard derived from birds brought to the United States from China in the 19th century, and is now bred in many parts of the world.

During the fall months, the dry Santa Ana winds start to blow and increase the fire danger to our City. Even though we require weeds to be removed around homes in early summer, weeds continue to grow year round in Southern California. If you still have weeds to clear or have unwanted tree trimmings lying around your house, now is the time to start removing all of the fire hazards on your property. To help facilitate your weed abatement process, the City, in conjunction with the Central Ventura County Fire Safe Council and Harrison Industries, will be hosting a free Community Vegetation Drop Off event. Unwanted vegetation including weeds, tree trimmings and brush may be dropped off. No other trash will be accepted. The Community Vegetation Drop Off will take place Saturday, September 19 from 9AM to 2 PM at City Well #4, 728 Goodenough Rd. City of Fillmore residents will be able to drive up and drop off their weeds, please follow all posted directions of City Staff to ensure proper social distancing remains in place. Remain in your vehicle; City Staff will unload your vehicle. Only clean unwanted vegetation will be accepted, no trash or dirt will be accepted.
