Residents in the La Loma and Oakmont neighborhoods would like to recognize an outstanding citizen, Don Reed. He regularly maintains a strip of neglected land along Encina Avenue, where he spends many hours mowing down unsightly weeds at his own expense. He is a hero to all of us who care about how our community looks. The work he does is not easy and is ongoing. The neighbors benefit from having a more desirable place to walk and even an access to a community garden. Thank you, Don! We really do appreciate your hard work and are glad you are part of our neighborhood.
