Seeing Stars Weather Clears For StarFest Once again hundreds of astronomy enthusiast descended on Julian for the annual StarFest and viewing party at Menghini Winery. Thursday’s late afternoon down pour may have sent many for cover, once it cleared the skies opened up and the viewing was spectacular. The rain had cleared the air and wet the ground to minimize the dust making for some spectacular opportunities for those in attendance. Although no official number were made available the best guess of some who attended is that over 300 pairs of eyes took advantage of
Not waiting for dark some took advantage of the clear daytime sky to observe the Sun.

the free Star Party on Saturday and vendors did say business was a little slow they thought the StarFest would be considered a success in their books. Most of the workshops and lectures were well attended. A quick check of the parking lot indicated that more overnight campers attended this year than have in the past. One attendee was only disappointed that a trip to Palomar was not available this year, they were going to try and get to the observatory for a tour on Sunday.
The Music Of Joni Mitchell With Adler And Blackburn Please join us for husband and wife duo, Robin Adler and Dave Blackburn, for the Music on the Mountain performance at the Julian Library. The performance will be on Tuesday, September 2 at 6 PM. All music performances are held in the main library and free to attend. San Diego vocalist Robin Adler is a veteran of the Peter Sprague group. Her husband, Dave Blackburn, plays several instruments, but primarily backs Adler on the guitar. Blackburn also has his own company where he is a music producer, bringing a lifetime of experience and expert ears to recording, mixing and mastering sound projects, making others music as vivid as possible. Adler and Blackburn will be performing original compositions in addition to Joni Mitchell tunes. Adler says, “I have been lifelong fans of Joni Mitchell.” In early 2006, they embarked on the ambitious project of learning her music in all its complexities and through all its epochs. Hoping to honor such a major artist they have produced a tribute show deep in its own right. Although they often perform as a guitar and vocal duo, Robin and Dave have assembled a group of extraordinary musicians to be the concert band, called Mutts of the Planet, after a line from a Mitchell lyric. The band has created fresh arrangements of well-known Mitchell standards
such as “Woodstock”, “River” and “Both Sides Now” and they also tackle some of the most challenging material from the later jazz period of Mitchell’s career. The music is presented along with illuminating details of educational interest about Mitchell’s songs and the circumstances of their creation, which has been a favorite aspect for many listeners. The result has been a hugely successful series of sold out concerts prompting extremely positive audience testimonials. Branch librarian, Colleen Baker first heard Dave Blackburn perform solo guitar during an Art opening in Fallbrook. Always

entire defense and a smackdown by Skyler. My Eagles used their final possession to tune up their short game with Darren, Kellen and Skyler picking up yards on the ground. After a short break, and moving the team and equipment to another field, our Eagles faced off against the Southern Conference Champion Noli Indian High School Braves. Because of the condition of the upper field, the teams chose to limit the field to 20 yards. There were some squirrel holes that could have broken an ankle in the end of the field. The Braves fielded a team of experienced starters on both sides of the ball and it showed. On the Braves’ seventh play of the series, a Julian defender, Mason Baay, took a hard shot to the ribs and came out of the game. On the shortened field, the Braves were able to score twice. The Eagles time on offense did not go well. Missing ¼ of the O-line, with Chris and Bubba not having enough practice time to continued on page 7

offensive series. The Eagles defense showed their resolve by limiting the Wildcats to a total of 10 yards in their first 10 play series. Highlights included three pass knock downs by Ozzy Martinez and a thumping sack by Shuuluk Linton. The Eagles first set of offensive plays started slowly with Darren Duffy unable to break through the line of scrimmage and Skyler Marushige tossing a pick. Darren picked it up for 11 hard fought yards on his next chance and Skyler lofted a lollipop to Kellen for 8. Skyler then lofted a perfect spiral to JJ for another 11 yards and Darren rushed for another 9 yards. The Eagles capped off the drive with a one-yard squirt into the endzone by Duffy. The Wildcats kept in their starters during their second offensive series and our Eagles put in the new guys to get them experience under fire. The Wildcats took advantage of the young Eagles inexperience and capitalized several times for long bombs and scores. Eagles highlights included two good stops by Ozzy, Jeremiah and the
