After we posed the question: “When was the last time bears were seen in residential aresa on the Hill” on last week’s front cover, a bear visited the Hill. There were several reported sitings, including the Tiso residence in Mountain Center last week. On Friday, he or she visited some Fern Valley residents and ambled up to Humber Park.

This past week, a bear was seen in Garner Valley. The visitor spent time at the Tiso residence.
"… hung out on our lawn at least three times over about four days. It ate our chickens, chewed our dogs bones and played with the dinosaur toys," Alan Tiso wrote to the Town Crier.
On Friday, Tracy Philippi observed it sauntering up Humber Park.
