Steve Rogers, long time proprietor of Fillmore Video, passed away last week. Our condolences to family and friends.


Back in June of this year the Fillmore School District changed the schedule for its Board meetings. For as long as anyone can remember school board meetings were held on Tuesdays which alternated with City Council meetings, also held on Tuesdays. This change created a serious conflict for those residents who wished to attend both District and Council meetings, now set for the same evening.

The Gazette has always covered both meetings, but the change has made that impossible. The Gazette has asked the Board for an explanation. We were told the change was necessary to avoid vacation conflicts and that the schedule would change back after November 19.

Many very important issues are being discussed now, such as the new Core Curriculum which threatens some senior’s graduation hopes. Question: Asked once again: Why do we have to wait until November 19?


I don’t know how much attention America is paying to the unparalleled barbarity the Religion of Peace (Jihadist Islam) is unleashing upon Christians of the Middle East today. It can’t be much, otherwise the call would go out for a new Crusader defense force.

Thousands of Christian churches are being destroyed and thousands of Christians are being systematically tortured, murdered, and enslaved in the name of Jihad.

Reports from Syria, Egypt, and (especially) Pakistan are horrific.

Pregnant women being targeted by Jihadist snipers. Rewards paid for those who shoot pregnant women in the belly. Pakistan: Christian wedding party exiting a church machine-gunned down, men, women, and children. This psychopathic conduct even involves domestic animals: Egypt: Muslim Brotherhood using "puppy bombs" dipped in gasoline and set on fire.

“But don't call it "savagery" Muhammad didn't like dogs:” "Once Gabriel promised the Prophet (that he would visit him, but Gabriel did not come) and later on he said, 'We, angels, do not enter a house which contains a picture or a dog.'" -- Sahih Bukhari 4.54.50 "Abdullah (b. Umar)...” (Robert Spenser)

Ignoring this explosive world-wide Jihadist insurgence only provokes and excites these butchers sworn to destroy everything associated with the Judeo-Christian West. Why do we continue to give billions of dollars to these energized Jihadist Middle Eastern Nations? The Far East is equally murderous.

President Obama is largely responsible for starting and fanning the flames. He supports the Muslim Brotherhood, which is at the center of the bloodshed, to the extent that even Saudi Arabia is rejecting him and America.

Things are quickly falling apart. With this absence of leadership, for another 3 years, I believe those countries we have squandered thousands of lives and trillions of dollars on (Iraq, Afghanistan, Egypt, Pakistan, etc.) will very soon be lost to Al-Qaida. All for nothing.
