Five minutes after the Jan. 17 earthquake, Fillmore City Councilman Roger Campbell was on his way to the fire station, where he serves as assistant fire chief. His turn-of-the-century home was demolished, and much of Fillmore was hit hard. A year later, he sees a new beginning. * I think our lives are getting back to normal. And I think we are doing a pretty good job of moving forward.

Councilman Don Gunderson has replaced Roger Campbell as Fillmore's mayor in an unusual, if expected, move. The City Council on Tuesday night replaced Campbell before the end of what he believed to be a two-year term. However, a majority of council members said last month that they had originally intended Campbell to serve only one year when he was appointed in 1995 so that his two-year mayoral term would end in the same year as council elections, which last occurred in November.

Five minutes after the Jan. 17 earthquake jolted downtown Fillmore, Roger Campbell was on his way to the fire station, tending to the needs of those shaken worse than himself. His turn-of-the-century home had been knocked from its foundation, his family rattled, but safe. "As soon as I walked out the door, I knew it was destroyed," Campbell said of the house he owned for 21 years. "I could see from the headlights as I drove off that the whole frame had shifted."

Not only did Roger Campbell fail to secure a seat on the Ventura County Board of Supervisors last year, but it looks as if he may step down early from his post as Fillmore's mayor. The City Council on Tuesday directed its staff to draft language amending a resolution that resulted in Campbell's appointment to what he believed was a two-year mayoral term in November 1995.

Preparing for a last-minute burst of activity before Tuesday's primary, Marian W. La Follette has poured $149,000 of her own money into her campaign for an open state Senate seat, bringing the total amount she has loaned her campaign to $199,000. La Follette said she made a $50,000 loan to her campaign on Friday, followed by a $99,000 loan on Saturday, to blanket the 19th state Senate District with mass mailings of campaign brochures.

Fillmore Councilman Roger Campbell announced Wednesday that he will challenge Assemblywoman Cathie Wright (R-Simi Valley) in the Republican primary for an open state Senate district that stretches from Oxnard to the San Fernando Valley. Campbell said he decided to run against Wright because she has lost touch with average citizens and because of her attempts to intervene with law enforcement authorities when her daughter ran up 24 speeding tickets over seven years.

Darkness. Then, abruptly, a jolt. A crash. Rumbling, screaming, shattering, tumbling. Panic. And again, darkness. Alone before dawn Monday in a hilltop parking lot in Simi Valley, nighttime security guard Mike Tam watched the shuddering earth heave through the San Fernando Valley and on toward Ventura County. One by one, lights flared and went dim as transformers blew. "It was a hell of a show," Tam said. "I could have used my surfboard up there on that ridge." Across Ventura County in Fillmore, Roger Campbell was not so sanguine.

Jumping in where a big player in the banking industry has decided to pull out, Simi Valley Bank officials announced Wednesday that the bank will expand under a new name by opening a full-service branch in Fillmore. The Simi Valley bankers said they chose the new name First Western Bank to reflect the expansion into an empty Fillmore bank building, an expansion they decided to launch after Bank of America announced plans to close its Fillmore branch in July.

County supervisor candidate Roger Campbell appears to be winning support among some doctors for his stance against a proposed $51-million outpatient wing at the Ventura County Medical Center. In his most recent campaign finance statement, Campbell records $9,827 in campaign contributions from Oct. 1 through Dec. 31, $1,000 of that from seven doctors. Campbell confirmed that all seven are practicing physicians at Community Memorial Hospital.

Bakst has thrown his support behind Fillmore Councilman Roger Campbell in Campbell's bid for a seat being vacated by board Chairwoman Maggie Kildee next year.

The art currently on view at the Koplin Gallery in Santa Monica comes in two sizes--twin and full. It's artist Roger Campbell's "The Mattress Series," eight oil portraits of discarded mattresses he found in his Los Angeles neighborhood. The exhibit opened this weekend and will be at the gallery until July 11. Some of the paintings are almost life-size and made to lean against the walls; others are folded over and hung. A few are striped.
