WHERE WE LIVE: Rio Bravo didn't win the university but it kept the character

Raphael Avenue just might have the best view in all of Bakersfield and, by extension, the entire San Joaquin Valley.

Contact The Californian’s Robert Price at 661-395-7399, or on Twitter: @stubblebuzz. “Where We Live,” a look at a unique Bakersfield-area neighborhood, enclave or community, appears monthly.
