Booster Club Awards Dinner Fallbrook resident Sally Estabrook was located and she was deceased. She had been missing from the Julian Pinezanita RV Park on Oct 4 2014. She was found about ½mile from where her family had been camping. Lieutenant John Maryon with the Sheriff’s homicide detail said, “It does not appear any foul play was involved.” A maintenance worker found the partial skeletal remains of a woman at 3:20 p.m. Wednesday , November 26 in dense brush behind a residence in the 200 block of Coulter Ridge Drive, according to the county Medical Examiner’s Office and the sheriff’s department. Estabrook was the motherin-law of Dave Mustaine, lead singer in the band Megadeath.
At one o’clock Saturday the festivities kicked off at Pioneer Park that would culminate in the lighting of the community Christmas Tree. A small crowd of 200 or so built up throughout the afternoon until an audience of close to 2000 had by five o’clock filled the park and overflowed onto Fourth Street to view the days featured event, the flipping of the switch and lighting of the tree.
Music On The Mountain
Gregory Page Returns
Gregory Page is returning to Julian! The Julian Library is honored to present Gregory Page for Music on the Mountain concert on Tuesday, December 9, at 6:00 pm. Page originally performed at the library in 2011 and immediately won a loyal following from the audience. A singer-songwriter, with his unique style, compelling lyrics, and winning personality, Page
has smooth vocals that delight and enchant listeners. Growing up in London, Page was surrounded by family members who performed and recorded swinging Jazz music. He was heavily influenced by Al Bowlly, Glenn Miller, Hoagy Carmichael, and Cole Porter. As a teenager, he dreamt about the day that he would grow up to become a female African-
Seven different musical presentations, a dance exhibition two readings and then it was time. The original plan was to have Julian “Merchant of the Year” Jeremy Manly do the honors, he was unfortunately busy in the Restaurant and sent his mother, Teresa Keller to handle the honors. After a short introduction by honorary mayor Stacy Peyakov, the count down and tree shone
brightly into the unseasonably warm November night. Then after a musical introduction, Santa made his way to the large chair on the stage, where he greeted and listed to children’s wishes until well after nine o’clock. Another year rapidly approaching it’s conclusion, and another get you in the mood Country Christmas celebration. see photos on page 3
American blues singer like his hero, Billie Holiday. Page states that he is “a product of his own imagination.” Page is actually the product of two musician/singers and music was in his blood. Born in London, to an Irish mother, Moyra Page of “The Beat-Chicks” and Armenian father Gregory Hovelian of the group “The Martians.” His parents met at when they were both performing in Lebanon. Unfortunately, Page did not meet his father until 1999. Page has a number of famous musician relatives, his uncle, Dave Page Jr. was the original drummer for Tom Jones and appeared with his band on the Ed Sullivan Show. His mom’s group opened twice for the Beatles in 1965. Page released his 21st full album “One Way Journey Home” during this past summer. First released in America in July, then on September 1 in the Netherlands, he has been playing to rave reviews. As listed on Page’s website - Occasionally you slide a CD into the player, which grabs you from the first second and does not let go. The world exists only of the music that you hear. It happened with “One Way Journey Home” from the American / Irish singersongwriter Gregory Page. His 21th album (not counting the EPs) sounds as if it was his first album. Made with the passion of a young dog, but coupled with
the wisdom of the 51-year-old that Page is. He shines in all twelve numbers, not a second flattens or collapses. Gregory Page delivers twelve wonderful miniature stories in a lovingly recorded CD produced and recorded by Jason Mraz. Please join us at the Julian Library on Tuesday, December 9, at 6:00 pm, to enjoy the incomparable Gregory Page! The library is located at 1850 Highway 78, Julian. For more information, please call the library at 760-765-0370.
