On Thursday April 16, 2009 Camarillo celebrated the grand opening of its long anticipated Promenade.  However, not all Camarillo or Ventura County residents welcome the expansion, and have some suggestions for stores that provide a better fit with the younger portion of Camarillo. On an article previously written by yours truly about the Camarillo Promenade E.J comments: Mana, it may seem nice for all the shoppaholics, but we definitely need much more for the family entertainment.  How about a Dave and Busters! Our college age young people would love it and there is definitely nothing like it in Ventura Co. Kids, families and singles would sure make use of it. How could this be promoted? E.J Another frustrated reader writes: These new developments are so disappointing (so far). I was b...

I picked up the local West County Star today and on the front page and pictured was a long time friend and past co worker of mine! His name is Richard T. Lee better known as Dick Lee to me. When he was 18 it says that he became one of the 1,000 black pilots who would eventually be known as the Tuskegee Airmen. He flew in North Africa and Burma during WWII. Wow!! Do you know I never knew this about Dick Lee? I knew he had retired from the service when I met him in the County Assessor's Office so many years ago, but never did he brag or talk about this major part of his life. Dick Lee is one of the nicest people I know. Unpretentious, always upbeat and smiling, and would do anything for anybody. I had the pleasure of supervising him as an Appraiser in the local County Assessor's Office. Y...

Snow In Camarillo, California   At about 9:30pm last Thursday night my husband left the city of Camarillo (elevation; 165 above see level) for a Christmas adventure due north. The Camarillo Christmas Truck drove for 2 hours to Pine Mountain Summit (elevation; 5160 feet above see level) and was back in Camarillo with a bed full of snow by 2:00am. Friday morning our children and their friends woke up to a white (almost) winter wonderland. The joy and laughter was priceless.  The snow fights ended without injury, but a life long memory was etched in everyone's mind and hearts. I am married to one of the best fathers alive and thank God everyday for the blessings we enjoy, even if it is a truck full of snow.

Actually, it was a green, green Christmas Parade.  The 47th Camarillo Christmas Parade was decidedly green this year. The theme of the parade was "A Green Christmas". Not green as in Christmas tree green, but green as is environmentally conscious green. Marching bands and floats were decorated with plastic bottles and recycled items. The environmental theme provided a fun twist to the annual parade, delighting everyone with the creative thinking of the parade participants. The San Gabriel High School marching band showed their creativity by attaching cans and bottles to their tubas and drums. Scripps Ranch High School  wore mismatched old band uniforms from years past.   Valencia High School showed their practical environmental mindedness by wheeling bins along the parade route so that ...

Say Hello To Camarillo's Christmas Truck     Christmas has always been the most splendid celebrated holiday in my family.  My husband and I have not only embraced the holiday traditions we both grew up with, but have also created a few traditions of our own.  My family’s celebration of the Christmas holidays involves more than just the members of our household.  We love Christmas and especially the joy the holidays bring to children.  Throughout the years we have come to a conclusion that no matter how rough life gets, there is no room for sadness during Christmas Celebration. For the past four years, my husband has been decorating his baby-blue, 1968, Dodge truck with Christmas lights.  Each year he adds or improves just a bit.  This year, old-Betsy (the name our daughters gave the tru...

There have been many reports regarding an increase in Southern California's 2008 Real Estate activity compare to 2007's Real Estate trends. This summer, 2008, I was much busier with home buyers' inquiring about properties in Camarillo than last summer.  This could be correlated to an increase in bank owned/REO homes for sale and the lower pricing of bank owned/REO homes. Below is a Comparable Real Estate Market Analysis for Camarillo. The table below demonstrates the number of homes sold and median home prices in the first 9 months of 2008 compared to the number of homes sold and median home prices in the first 9 months of 2007.     Period Number of homes sold Median Price of Homes Sold Number of Short Sale Homes Sold Number of Bank Owned Homes Sold From: 01/01/08 To: 09/30/08 547 $465,...

National Walk to School Day, October 8, 2008 In Case you missed the notification from Pleasant Valley School District (PVSD), I am here to remind you that Wednesday October 8, 2008 is National Walk to School Day. In 1997, the Partnership for a Walkable America sponsored the very first National Walk to School Day in Chicago. Since then, all 50 Stats have joined this annual event to promote one main cause, a more Walkable America.  In our City of Camarillo schools such as Las Posas Elementary School will honor all students who participate in National Walk to School Day by presenting those students with a National Walk to School Day tag! So, residents of Camarillo, I encourage you to join the rest of the country by walking your child to school for a healthier lifestyle, less traffic, clean...
