A small brush fire started Thursday night at 9:15 p.m. south of Questhaven road just east of San Elijo Hills. The fire is 100% extinguished and burned less then a 1/2 acre of San Diego County owned brush land. The parcel is located south of Venzano and adjacent to Cambria neighborhoods in San Elijo Hills.

San Marcos, Elfin Forest and Cal Fire responded and should be thanked for a quick response. Favorable winds conditions assisted the fire teams. San Elijo Hills residents reported something in the air, potentially a homemade mini hot air balloon.

Venzano wins the”Dreyer’s Slow Churned Neighborhood Salute Grand Prize Package

Sarah Fisher of Venzano was awarded the”Dreyer’s Slow Churned Neighborhood Salute Grand Prize Package.” Thousands of essays across the nation were received and based on Mrs. Fisher’s heartfelt essay, she was chosen as one of the winning neighborhoods! The Fisher’s, along with their family and friends will enjoy an afternoon of Dreyer’s Ice Cream and summer fun!

Essay Entry:
Last spring while searching for the “perfect” neighborhood for our family we quickly discovered this magical community called Venzano. The streets were filled with children playing, and adults laughing and talking in their front yards. We soon came to find out that this was not only a weekly affair, but a daily occurrence. The Venzano neighborhood is vibrant and full of life. The incredible sense of community is like that of the American Dream. The neighbors have genuine care and concern for each others well being. Friendships are made on a daily basis and we are extremely proud to call this place home. The first families to move into the neighborhood started a tradition called “Driveway Parties” where everyone is invited to a different driveway to share drinks, food and to create and maintain friendships. We can only hope that this sense of neighborhood will last a lifetime here in Venzano. If our neighborhood was to win the “ice cream block party” it would enable the newcomers to the neighborhood to meet and develop new friendships in this fabulous, fun loving community.

Neighbors Try To Restrict Boy, Family To Home, Driveway

Spencer Trussell likes to play and ride his bike. “I’m 4 years old,” he said, “and I have a sister named Olivia, and I ride my bike all day long.” He lives in a piece of suburbia that seems picturesque: the Venzano development in San Marcos. His parents, Gary and Marla Trussell, moved the family here five months ago. “I thought it would be good for the children,” Marla Trussell explained.

But instead of being welcomed, the Trussell family has been under attack, they said, by neighbors. The accusations against them have been wild, including that 4-year-old Spencer “might come out with a firearm at anytime.””I thought they had lost their minds,” said Marla Trussell.They are neighbors Sarah Fisher, Danielle Harway and Kelly Plaster. All three filed court papers asking that Spencer, his sister Olivia, and mom and dad be restricted to their own home and driveway.”There was nothing I had done, my husband had done, my daughter had done, or I had done that warranted that response,” said Trussell.
