Recently, volunteers from the local ward of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints gave a helping hand to one of our longtime Fillmore residents, Daisy Sanderson. These folks swarmed over the Santa Clara Street property and trimmed, hauled, painted, and generally made short work of a tricky cleanup job. I would like them to know that we here at the city of Fillmore appreciate their efforts and the efforts of Steve McKinnon who put this project together. This is the direction that we would like to go eventually with the Redevelopment Agency's Housing Rehabilitation Program.

Vance Johnson was on the phone--but which Vance Johnson? There's a Vance Johnson who plays wide receiver for the Denver Broncos and writes bye-bye on the heels of his shoes to show to defensive backs. Could he be any relation to the Vance Johnson who paints? Same guy. And wasn't there a Vance Johnson who almost made the Olympic team? And which one collects pricey cars as if they were house plants?

John Elway got his first Kingdome victory since 1989 on Sunday, with a lot of help from the Denver Broncos' defense. The Broncos forced Seattle's Rick Tuten to punt a club-record 12 times and Elway passed for one touchdown and directed Denver to a second in a 17-9 victory. It also was Denver's first two-game sweep over the Seahawks since 1989. The Broncos beat Seattle, 28-17, at Denver on Oct. 31.

The feelings of an artist often are reflected in his work, and that may explain why most of Vance Johnson's recent drawings have had bold strokes in harsh colors and brooding women as the subjects. Johnson, the wide receiver for the Denver Broncos who moonlights as a starving artist, said that since he didn't feel at all happy for the last few weeks, he certainly didn't want anything smiling back at him from the canvas. Paint it black, as Mick Jagger sings.

The balloons and flowers that filled Room 315 of St. Luke's Hospital were nice, but for the head Amigo it wasn't like Mile High Stadium, where confetti rained down against the background of a cobalt blue sky and orange-colored Broncomania. Vance Johnson desperately wanted to be there. "I was sitting up here in the hospital bed going crazy," Johnson said by phone after the Broncos' wildly emotional 38-33 AFC championship win over the Cleveland Browns Sunday.

Denver wide receiver Vance Johnson says Raider cornerback Lester Hayes tried to "gouge out" his eyes early in the Broncos' 38-36 victory Sunday at Mile High Stadium. But Hayes denies the allegation. "I did not go for his eyes," Hayes said. "I was actually trying to get a speck of dust off his eyebrow." Johnson said Hayes nearly blinded him, which he said was more upsetting than the knee injury he suffered later in the game that will put him out for six weeks.

Broncos wide receiver Vance Johnson walked out of training camp Monday, apparently as a result of a salary dispute. However, he was back at camp this morning. He refused to talk to the media but did not practice because of a pulled hamstring. "It's hard for me to speculate on what happened," said interim Head Coach Wade Phillips, who said Johnson will be fined. "He wasn't here, and he didn't talk to me. It's an unexcused absence."

Mark Jackson emerged from the shower last Sunday after his Denver Broncos had beaten the Rams, looked across the locker room at teammate Vance Johnson, smiled and yelled, " Ole! " Johnson also broke into a grin and responded with an " Ole! " of his own. A sequel in the making? Premiere of the Three Amigos II? Surely you remember those colorful characters from last season's Super Bowl. So what ever happened to them?

It's a hard world to get a break in. Ask the Three Amigos, the Denver Broncos' receiving trio of Vance Johnson, Mark Jackson and Ricky Nattiel, who have risen to stardom, only to find that it was easier being anonymous. Si, they could tell you a thing or two about fame. One moment they were lovable muppets. The next, they were Three Friends, Inc. This is 1988, remember, there's a world to be won and the Vance was involved.

The folks around Denver say that on some days there are no words to describe John Elway, but Vance Johnson gives it the best try. "John is a great athlete," the Broncos' wide receiver said after catching 5 of Elway's passes for 115 yards and a touchdown in a 23-17 win over the Raiders at the Coliseum Sunday. "He has all the confidence in the world," Johnson said. "As long as he believes in himself, he'll get the job done. He gets that walk . . .
