Over the past 15 years, the Bakersfield businessman has invested thousands of dollars in neon signs to draw attention to his two Mauricio's Restaurants -- on Rosedale Highway and White Lane.
"I'm a big fan of neon," Avila said, acknowledging that he could have purchased cheaper illuminated signs for his restaurants. "But neon is a piece of Americana. It's bright. It's beautiful. It's great to show off your logo. It says something special about your business."

News ReleaseUC Irvine Release: LEDs contain lead and other toxics. :: UC Irvine TODAY
Those light-emitting diodes marketed as safe, environmentally preferable alternatives to traditional lightbulbs actually contain lead, arsenic and a dozen other potentially hazardous substances, according to newly published research.
LEDs are touted as the next generation of lighting. But as we try to find better products that do not deplete energy resources or contribute to global warming, we have to be vigilant about the toxicity hazards of those marketed as replacements,” said Oladele Ogunseitan, chair of UC Irvine’s Department of Population Health & Disease Prevention.The diodes are widely hailed as safer than compact fluorescent bulbs,
which contain dangerous mercury. But, he said, they weren’t properly
tested for potential environmental health impacts before being marketed
as the preferred alternative to inefficient incandescent bulbs, now
being phased out under California law.
“We still have the original seats and we still have the original neon art-deco lighting inside,” Davenport said.
