Don Winslow To Speak At Friends Of The Library Annual Meeting - Saturday

Page 13

New Fire House, Weeks Away From Grand Opening

Chief Marinelli and architect review progress on new station The Julian Fire Plugs and Julian-Cuyamaca Fire Protection District are planning an Open House for the new fire station (completion expected mid-March and move-in scheduled for first week in April) on Saturday, April 22. Our official program will begin at 11:00 am to acknowledge major donors, followed by a ribbon-cutting ceremony. Starting at Noon, the volunteer firefighters will grill hamburgers and hot dogs and a local band will play music. All is free and we hope residents will join us to celebrate and tour the new fire station. Everyone has received a letter from JCFPD requesting donations to help complete and furnish the new station. If you donate $250 or more, you will receive an engraved leaf on our new Donor Tree. This process takes a couple of weeks, so if you want to see your leaf on the tree at the open house, do not delay in sending in your donation form. Also, another way to donate (especially if you like shopping) is to purchase a house warming gift from the Target Store Gift Registry. Simply go to: www.jcfpd.com and click on the Target icon. You will see all of the items that are needed, but you can also choose gifts you think would make the new station comfortable for the volunteer firefighters and paramedics. Thanks to everyone who has sent in donations. Your generosity is appreciated.

The Friends of the Julian Library are pleased to be featuring internationally acclaimed author and local resident Don Winslow as the speaker for the annual meeting being held on Saturday, February 25 at 1:00 PM at the Julian Library. Winslow will be speaking about story structure for writers, readers, and filmgoers. Don Winslow is a New York Times bestselling author. His most recent novel, The Cartel, was awarded the LA Times Book Award, the Steel Bajjer Award, and slated as a film directed by Ridley Scott. Locally Don is known for his involvement in theater by directing and adapting plays for younger performers. These include A Christmas Carol, the Shakespeare play at Spencer Valley School and musical and theatrical productions at Julian High School. Winslow has written seventeen novels, including The Kings of Cool, Savages, The Winter of Frankie Machine and the highly acclaimed epic, The Power of the Dog. Two of his books have been made into movies. Julian Branch Librarian Colleen Baker is delighted that Winslow agreed to speak. “Don is a big draw and the community

loves him.” Baker reports, “This time he has chosen to teach about story structure of books and movies.” Baker added, “With his theater background, he can be quite entertaining. This time it comes with good advice to all attendees.” You are invited to come hear some of Winslow’s tricks of the trade and support the Friends of the Julian Library. A reception

The American Legion and the Sons of the American Legion have been constantly supporting not only ASB, but the entire School of Julian High. On behalf of the ASB members of Julian High School, we want to show our appreciation to you, the American Legion, through this thank you letter. You have been so supportive of us and everything we do here at the high school. The American Legion allows us, ASB, and other school related activities, to participate in their countless breakfasts and dinners as a fundraiser at your facility. The American Legion has always been a big supporter of ours, and we appreciate that. Without the support of the men and women of the American Legion and Sons of the American Legion, so much would not be possible. ASB wouldn’t be able to run most of the things that makes our High School successful. Thank you very much for everything you do for us. JUHS ASB The Julian Cemetery Association is pleased to announce that we are working on an addition to our Veterans Memorial Monument. We wish to purchase a granite wall engraved with "Our Fallen Heroes". A plaque will be placed on the wall, bearing the names of veterans buried in the Julian Cemetery. We would appreciate your help. We have a list of Veterans which are honored on Memorial Day and Veterans Day by placing flags on the gravesites. We would like to update our list. Please send us information regarding your loved one indicating the branch of service, and if possible, the time they served. Any information would be appreciated. We are also asking for donations, big or small, to help in this new endeavor. Please forward to the Julian Cemetery Association, P.O. Box 534, Julian, Ca, 92036. We will keep you updated with our progress. On another note, the Cemetery Board would like to thank the Julian Sheriffs and the Sheriff Volunteers, Steve Logan, Dave Walton and Joseph Martinez for helping with the invasion of the tourists during the snow. They were able to help guard and protect our cemetery. The Julian Cemetery Association

Dear Parents, We had an incident this week I wanted you to be aware of. On Thursday, February 16, a student at the junior high said he was going to bring a gun to school. We found out about it after school from concerned parents and students. Friday morning we worked with our local Sheriff 's Dept. to deal with the student and ensure safety. The student did not bring any weapon and said it was a joke. He is being dealt with and the school day went fine. We talked to all students about the incident and the importance of speaking up when they hear something is wrong. Please feel free to call or email me if you have any questions or concerns. Thank you, Brian Duff y Superintendent

CHP Commissioner Logs On To Social Media SACRAMENTO, Calif. – The California Highway Patrol (CHP) announced today that Commissioner Joe Farrow is joining the conversation on social media. Commissioner Farrow’s handle on Twitter, @CHPCommissioner, will complement the CHP’s growing popularity on various social media platforms. "The CHP is always searching for new and better ways to interact with the public we serve," said Commissioner Farrow. "Using available social media sites seemed like a natural way for the CHP to provide education and information to the public." Since the CHP entered the social media arena in 2012, its following has grown to nearly 195,000 on Facebook and more than 24,000 on Twitter. To connect with the CHP on Facebook, visit www.facebook.com/chp/, and on Twitter @CHP_HQ. The CHP also operates a Nixle account. Nixle allows the CHP to provide nearly immediate, geographically-targeted, public safety information to subscribers. Nixle has been used to provide notifications to the public ranging from advisories to emergencies. In addition to the above accounts, the CHP also maintains accounts on Instagram https://www.instagram.com/californiahighwaypatrol/, YouTube https://www.youtube.com/user/TheCHPChannel, and Vimeo https://vimeo. com/chphq to share videos for public viewing, such as public service announcements and safety messages. These messages include information about AMBER Alerts and the prevention of driving under the influence. "Connecting with the public we serve allows them to share their thoughts on CHP operations. Whether it is a comment or concern, we want the public to feel their voice is being heard by the CHP," said Commissioner Farrow. "Public safety and trust are our primary interests." Many CHP Division and Area offices are also part of the growing conversation on social media. Twitter and Facebook accounts are a popular way for local CHP Areas to alert the public to traffic issues in their area. The mission of the CHP is to provide the highest level of Safety, Service, and Security to the people of California.

Girl Scouts Earn Scholarships

Ramona High School junior Taylor Cole (left), who lives in Julian, and fellow Girl Scout Amira Walia are making the world a better place by supporting Nobel Peace Prize recipient Malala Yousafzai’s vision of tranforming girls through quality education. Taylor and Amira both received Stand #withMalala college scholarships for taking action in their communities.

Female Mountain Lion caught with a trail camera last summer. WRI would like to invite interested individuals to cooperate by installing cameras and/or share their existing camera trap data that take a picture when an animal walks nearby and trips the motion sensor. Our goal is to better understand where our wildlife is using the landscape. These wildlife corridors are important to know and understand as we subdivide our land, build new homes, add livestock, and additional people to our local population. All information will be proprietary and your information will never be shared without your permission, but will become part of a repository of scientific results. The two main species WRI is currently interested in studying are mountain lions and mule deer since deer are the main prey of pumas. However all species are of interest to WRI. Species such as ringtails, badgers, raccoons, bobcats, opossums, are primarily nocturnal and normally secretive, so unless we photograph them using remote Infrared (IR) cameras we don’t even know they are in our backyards. Mountain Lions in Julian are around more than one might think and are an invaluable part of a healthy eco-system. They are naturally wary and run or hide when they see or hear people. In order to study our local wildlife population and to promote successful coexistence through best livestock husbandry practices, the Wildlife Research Institute has also partnered with The Mountain Lion Foundation to share information about good animal husbandry to avoid the sad interaction of pumas being lured into unguarded areas and killing your beloved pets. Building Mountain Lion proof cages for our chickens, goats, pets, and hobby animals is a successful approach. Mountain Lions can’t kill anything they can’t physically get to. However in order to have a complete picture of how the lions are traveling, what property they are traveling through, where they are having their young, and where are the deer that is their main food source we need additional landowners willing to share knowledge of the wildlife on their land. Learning the wildlife corridors and refugia areas are critical to the long term survival of our wildlife. Tracking of Mountain Lions is and has been ongoing using VHF Radio and satellite tracking transmitters but this is very expensive and will soon end. Using these technologies a great deal has been learned about Mountain Lions. We know that the males have huge territories that cover up to 100 square miles while the females may use only 25 square miles and have overlapping territories. Young females tend to stay near their Mom’s territory while the young males may disperse very long distances in search of a new home range. We have also learned why and how they are being killed in our local area. Most of the lion mortality in the mountains around Julian down to Descanso is caused by what is known as depredation killings. That means if a Mountain Lion kills a goat, chicken, pet or sheep, goat, or other livestock it can be killed legally by the owner who obtains a depredation permit. The current rate at which we are killing Mountain Lions for depredation is probably exceeding the reproduction and health of the local Mountain Lions. Biologists and California Fish and Wildlife agree that the population is smaller than it was 10 years ago and still dropping. Moreover these lion kills lead to orphaned kittens and bachelor dispersing young males that get into trouble. According to the UC Davis genetic studies, our lions are even showing signs of inbreeding which is exasperated when the pumas have undue pressure on their population. Top predators are essential regulators of ecosystems – preventing overpopulation of deer, coyote, and smaller carnivores. Without our apex predators to take down big game, herds linger longer in one area, trampling and chewing flora, and disrupting the balance of riparian areas. Anyone interested in learning more or willing to cooperate in this grass root, citizen scientist camera study is asked to please contact the Wildlife Research Institute at 760-765-1957 or e-mail at dbittner@ wildlife-research.org. We will arrange a meeting/training session of interested parties in the near future here in Julian. *** “It's ironic when black non-Muslims say Islam is not a religion that uplifts black people when two of the most celebrated black heroes in recent history were both Muslim; Malcolm X and Muhammad Ali.” — Habeeb Akande

From The Supervisor’s Desk

Notes from Supervisor Dianne Jacob New year, new ideas: It was my great honor to recently deliver the 2017 State of the County address. Our county government is strong, and we will continue to make public safety our top priority, but we also have a lot of work ahead of us. In my speech, I announced seven initiatives that I’d like the county and region to pursue this year: • Let’s be street wise: Ramp up funding to improve county roads within five years. • Green light for green projects: Create a sustainable endowment fund to support parks. • Confronting the pension challenge: Pursue changes in employee benefits to ensure fiscal health. • Prepare for the silver surge: Hire a ‘senior czar’ to steer improvements in senior services. • There’s an app for that: Graffiti? Potholes? Gas price gouging? Try the county’s new Tell Us Now! app. • Stay battle ready: Tools and tactics to fight crime, wildfire and sex slavery. • Building a bond: Work with schools to improve community and cop relations. We will continue to do all we can to keep our communities safe, remain fiscally sound and to maintain a county government that serves the people and does them proud. East County’s finest: Presenting county proclamations to those who have distinguished themselves is one of the best parts of my job. In recent weeks, I’ve had the privilege of honoring folks like Richard Nasif, El Cajon's Citizen of the Year. He has done so much for the community -- as a police officer, a coach and a downtown leader. Other recent honorees include star golfer Breann Horn, a student at El Capitan High, and Polly Schoonover, a volunteer at Edgemoor skilled nursing facility in Santee. For more District 2 news, go to www.diannejacob.com or follow me on Facebook and Twitter. If I can assist with a county issue, please call my office at 619-531-5522 or email dianne.jacob@sdcounty. ca.gov Have a great East County day! *** “Jazz in itself is not struggling.

The Sporadicals are a San Diego based acoustic Irish folk and classic rock medley oriented group with a wide variety of influences ranging from the Dubliners to the Doobies…and all the other alphabet letters too. The instrumentation includes guitars, flute, recorders, Irish whistles, mandolin and ukulele…sometimes a kazoo. The music is progressive and fun with harmonies and surprises mixed throughout. Members: Glen Weischedel (percussion and wind instruments), Chris Naire (Guitar and vocals) and Chris Cornish (guitar, mandolin, ukulele and vocals) have been friends and played in various ensembles for years. They joined together in 2014 out of the love of music and an uncanny camaraderie. As applicable to Julian, Glen has been an artisan in the back country for years and is currently working out at the Hubbles. Chris Cornish played with Julian based band “Mile High” about 10-years back and has performed numerous times solo and along with Chris Naire at different venues in the past. Glen- has back up many events and groups with his free flowing style of percussion and steps up to a very melodic flute throughout our sets. Chris Naire- has played in classic rock bands since the 80’s and is an encyclopedia of music. Chris Cornish- plays a lot of alternate tunings and has played in multiple bands through the yearsmostly performing as an acoustic solo act. All of the members love Julian and have spent many occasions in the area. They are truly excited about playing Wynola Pizza this Friday, February 24 from 6-9 and hope their friends and acquaintances drag out the whole crew for a great evening of musical surprises and acoustic arrangements familiar from the distance past.

Gregory Page's new video "Dead & Gone" balances dark humor with a surreal look at an unlikely topic. The intent of the piece is anything but morbid, as Page’s alter ego, “Greg Gory”, takes us on a guided tour of the “flip side” of life with both iconoclastic laughter and artistic reverence. “Dead & Gone” subtly breaks tradition and taboo with stunning visuals and a hauntingly beautiful lyric set to a seductive Tango rhythm. The orchestration features strings reminiscent of a vintage Theremin. "Dead & Gone” is the musical moving picture of our common human legacy, evoking with surprising optimism the passage of time, the seeds we plant, the love we make and the art we create. This original song is featured on his new album "So It Goes" which will be released in The Netherlands in Spring 2017. Upcoming Wynola Pizza & Bistro Shows:

My Thoughts


by Michele Harvey

All Your Tree Service Needs

Bagging Groceries

Now that we Californians have to bring our own bags to the grocery stores, or pay for sturdy bags supplied by the stores, I hear lots of complaints about how groceries get bagged. To be fair, grocery store baggers have to find ways to put groceries in bags of all shapes and sizes. Some bags don’t stand up on their own, yet a person filling that bag has to fill it quickly and efficiently. Whether a checker or bagger bags groceries, they have to be quick because it seems like more and more people line up to buy groceries these days. Some people I know think that the baggers don’t care how they bag groceries. I think they haven’t been properly trained. If you don’t prepare the meals in your house, you probably won’t notice if the bread is mashed or if the tomatoes crushed some of your eggs. When I was in my early 20s I worked for Alpha Beta-Acme Inc. The company owned grocery stores and sent all new employees to baggers school. In those days all large paper grocery bags were square cut and could be doubled for extra strength. I think we have a semi-secret society of bagger school graduates here in the Julian area. At least three of us live up here. That was a little side fact. If you decide to bag your own groceries or if you watch a bagger bag your groceries, here is how it is done properly. First, remember that you shouldn’t put more than 20 pounds of groceries in one bag. In the past, this was to keep the bag from breaking, but also so the average person wouldn’t injure themselves by lifting grocery bags that were too heavy. The newest way to bag groceries seems to be to stuff them as tight and as full as can be done. I don’t understand this because if I’m willing to pay for one bag, I’m certainly willing to pay a dime each for more bags. When bagging groceries distribute the weight evenly within the bag. In other words, don’t put extremely heavy items in one end, while filling the other end with light weight items. Don’t put several two liter bottles of soda in one end of your bag while filling the other end with tortilla chips. If you do, the bottles may crush the light weight items before you actually get them into your vehicle. Next, you need to know that groceries need to be separated into categories. Now that we are using reusable bags only, try to use the same bags for the same grocery items each time you shop. All chemicals and cleaning products should be separated from food items. They can go into one bag that should only be used for chemical products each time you shop. This way, chemicals won’t penetrate your food items during another shopping trip. I’m sure that I’m not the only person who doesn’t like my fresh vegetables tasting like bleach. Raw meats should never be mixed with raw fruits or vegetables. Actually, raw meats should never be mixed with anything else and when you unpack them, check your meat bag for leakage into the bag. You may need to wash that bag before reusing it. Fruits and vegetables can be tricky. Sometimes you have to make decisions about what to place in the bottom of the bag and what goes on top. Melons, potatoes and corn on the cob are easy choices to place in the bottom of a grocery bag. Ripe tomatoes are often a good choice for the top of the bag, but what if you have ripe bananas or berries to pack home? Eggs normally would be placed at the top of the bag so they don’t get broken. But if the eggs go on top, where does the bread go? Bagging groceries is more complicated and takes more thought than most of us imagine. When bagging groceries, always use your best judgement and remember you can always put just one item in each bag. Baggers school was a very good idea. Plenty of people worked their way through college by working at grocery stores and now I can picture the hundreds or maybe thousands of people who have very diversified careers and still know how to bag groceries. These are my thoughts.

There’s More Here Than Big Ben It was a lovely February day in London which meant you could almost see the sun in a sky that wasn't leaking water, a perfect day to be walking along the Thames to the Tate Britain. We felt very with it and, well, British. The Tate Britain is an art gallery that features British art (surprise) and is housed in a wonderful old pile that opens into one foyer and goes on and on through several others, all bare, until you get to a place where side rooms are filled with statues and pictures. There is a requested donation for the free museum but unlike American museums which won't let you through the door until the donation is made, the Tate merely has a box with a sign. Which everyone ignored as they surged forward to see British art. You know, British painters like Constable, Gainsborough, Turner, Canaletto... Canaletto? Wasn't he Italian? You know, Canaletto, who painted detailed scenes of Venice where edges of everything could be cut with a knife no matter how far away in a misty background they would have been if a real English artist, say Turner, had painted them? But Canaletto, it seems, came to Britain. He painted a London scene with the same sharp edges. And if you painted in Britain you apparently got to be a British artist which, given the level of most British art, makes some sense. I mean, you have to do SOMETHING if you're up against places like Holland and Italy. And, like, Handel was an English composer after all. Wasn't he? So Canaletto is in and admired and we proceeded to the David Hockney exhibit which was the feature of the month or maybe the year. Hockney is a great artist who also has sharp edges but...wait! David Hockney painted swimming pools. Backyard swimming pools. In southern California which invented backyard swimming pools and which may be the only, absolutely the only single place where backyard swimming pools are really, truly, an authentic part of the landscape, everything else being an imitation of our paradise. So what is David Hockney doing at the Tate Britain if he is so bound up with backyard swimming pools? Okay, he was born in something-shire or other-wold which he also painted, but he moved to California where he painted backyard swimming pools AND Hollywood landscapes. Surely Hockney is an American artist by the same rule that Canaletto is a British artist but...never mind, who expects art to be logically consistent anyway? It was a great exhibit. Next time you're in London...think about the Tate Britain. And admire the Canaletto. It has really sharp edges.

As a child, I remember coming into the kitchen and hearing my mother’s pressure cooker rattling away. It sounded like a runaway steam engine had taken over the kitchen stove. I’d heard stories about pressure cookers blowing up and leaving what was supposed to be dinner all over the ceiling.

So I must admit, I was afraid to use the Fagor pressure cooker I received as a gift, until I realized that modern pressure cookers have been completely redesigned. For example, my Fagor pressure cooker has three safety valves that allow any possible excess pressure to escape, so the cooking

experience is completely secure. The pressure cooker was created by French inventor Denis Papin in 1680. The clunky heavy metal pressure regulator of old that made so much noise was the updated version of his original “marmite de Papin” or Papin Digestor. Fagor has created a sleek, easy-to-use pressure cooker with a temperature device built into the tight-fitting lid with a locking handle. When the lid is properly locked into place, an airand steam-tight seal is created. As the cooking liquid in the pressure cooker is heated to the boiling point (212 F), steam is created. Since the steam cannot escape from the sealed pot, intense pressure is created. The internal cooking temperature will vary depending on the different levels of pressure created by the trapped steam. Foods cooked under high pressure reach a temperature of 250 F, which is 38 F hotter than continued on page 12

Old Washboard Q: My mom was raised on a farm in Nebraska during the 1930s and '40s. When she moved to Canton, Ohio, after World War II, she brought with her several items, including a washboard. It was manufactured by the National Washboard Company of Chicago and is model 862. Do you have any idea of its value? -- Betty, Canton, Ohio A: Most of the older washboards sell in the $25 to $45 range. Also associated with washday were the boilers, which often sell for $150 and more because of their copper content. *** Q: While visiting a thrift store in Wichita, I found a small box of paperback books, all by Raymond Chandler and all from the 1950s and '60s. They include "The Big Sleep" (original cover price of 25 cents), "Five Sinister Characters," "Pick-up on Noon Street," "The Finger Man" and "Lady in the Lake," the last the Armed Services edition from 1944. I bought nine paperbacks for a total of $3. I have two questions: Are paperbacks from the 1940s collectible and, if so, how much are the ones I bought worth? -- Mark, Wichita, Kansas A: Depending on the exact edition and condition, most of the titles you listed sell in the $5 to $35 range. I have seen guides that list much higher prices, but something is only worth what someone is willing to plunk down in cold cash to buy it. Most price guides for collectibles should be read with a grain of salt. *** Q: In about 1960, a friend gave me the Pez full-body Santa. It has been packed away ever since. A neighbor heard about it and has offered $50 for it. Before I sell it, I thought I would check with you. -- Brett, Arkadelphia, Arkansas A: The Pez candy dispensers have been around for over half a century. During the 1950s, Pez began producing a series of Santa dispensers, and they became the most popular ones ever produced by the company. The full-body Santa was issued during the 1950s, and according to "Warman's Pez Guide" by Shawn Peterson and published by Krause Books, it is valued in the $150 to $200 range. *** Write to Larry Cox in care of KFWS, 628 Virginia Drive, Orlando, FL 32803, or send e-mail to questionsforcox@aol.com.

February 22, 2017 on Malcolm X’s life including the February 14, 1965 firebombing of his home while he was there with his wife and four children, the same fate his father experienced in 1929 at the hands of the KKK. A week later on February 21, even though he was protected by bodyguards while he was giving a speech in New York City, three men rushed him on stage, blasted him with buck-shot and handguns fifteen times. Malcolm X was dead at 39 years old. All three of his assailants were members of the Nation of Islam and convicted of first degree murder in 1966. As many as 30,000 people came to Malcolm X’s viewing in Harlem. Oddly, though he was Muslim, his services were held at the Church of God in Christ. At his interment at Ferncliff Cemetery his friends manned the shovels and buried him themselves.

Malcolm Little

by Bic Montblanc

In the 1950s and 60s the civil rights movement was taking hold. With sweeping court challenges and decisions, social confrontation and support by Eisenhower, Kennedy and Johnson, the country was moving quickly toward equality in the law. Attitudes entrenched in the minds of many Americans were slower to change but the country was on the move first by eliminating legal obstacles by striking down racist laws and policies. Thurgood Marshall and Martin Luther King were the subject of my previous two columns and were leaders in the legal and social combat of racism. This being Black History month, attention should be called to another well known African American leader who parted ways of the previous two protagonists and like Martin Luther King he met an untimely, violent death promoting his version of racial justice. His father Earl Little was born in the late 1800s in Georgia. He eventually settled in Omaha, Nebraska with his wife Louise and had eight children. Earl was a Baptist Minister and early on was a follower of Marcus Garvey who founded the Universal Negro Improvement Association. The UNIA did not seek integration but sought to unite Blacks worldwide, improve their standing and also promoted a program of immigration back to Africa. Earl’s activities caught the attention of the KKK and for the safety of his family he moved frequently, eventually settling in Lansing, Michigan. He continued attracting the attention of the Klan and in 1929 his home was burned to the ground. In 1931, under mysterious circumstances Earl was found dead lying across railroad tracks. Police ruled it an accident. Many believed he was murdered by the Black Legion a white supremacist group affiliated with the Klan. Six years later while trying desperately to provide for her children, Louise broke down and was committed to an institution. Malcolm Little was born in 1925 six years before his father’s demise. At the time of his mother’s commitment he was 13 and his siblings were separated and farmed out to foster homes. After living in a number of homes Malcom eventually made his way to Boston living with a half sister and worked at menial jobs. He lived in New York for a time but eventually moved back to Boston and lived a criminal life. In 1946

he was arrested, convicted and sentenced to ten years in Charlestown State Prison. While in prison, Little began to read and educate himself. His siblings wrote him about their new faith that taught black self reliance, disengagement from white society and eventually the return to Africa. The religion was the Nation of Islam and its leader was Elijah Muhammad. After many letters to and from Muhammad and his brother Reginald a devotee of the NOI, Malcolm converted. He dropped his name Little which he described as the name imposed by the “blue eyed devil slave master” and adopted X, which “symbolized the true African family name that he could never know.” Malcolm X was born and became a member of the Nation of Islam while in prison. Much like his father, he believed in separateness of the races and black self reliance. He said of his father, "the image of him that made me proudest was his crusading and militant campaigning...” Malcolm adopted and advocated the principles of the Nation of Islam which were; black people are the original people of the world, white people are devils, blacks are superior to whites, and the demise of the white race is imminent. He was paroled in in 1952 even after the FBI had opened its first file on him after he wrote President Truman that he was a communist. He joined Muhammad in Chicago and within a year he was made an assistant minister in Detroit. X was tall and handsome and recognized as an electrifying and powerful speaker. He went on to expand or create new temples in Harlem, Boston, Philadelphia, Springfield, Mass., Hartford and Atlanta. He once again attracted the attention of the FBI because of his prominent position in the NOI. Due to X in his role as national spokesman, membership in the NOI was soaring which created conflict in the form of resentment by Muhammad. Muhammad then silenced X due to his crass remarks (“the chickens have come home to roost”) regarding the Kennedy assassination. Additionally X became disillusioned with Muhammad’s infidelities with other women and he and his mentor quickly lost favor with each other. He began to speak about associating with Dr. King’s fight for integration and equality which Muhammad forbade. X left the faith in 1964 and made the hadj to Mecca and returned with a new philosophy, converting to Sunni and started his own religious sect called Muslim Mosque, Inc. He said, while on his pilgrimage that “he had met “blonde-haired, blued-eyed men I could call my brothers.” He was now preaching to all races incurring the wrath of the NOI and Elijah Muhammad who marked him for death. The FBI who had agents planted throughout the NOI did little to mitigate the number of attempts

Malcolm X, aka el-Hajj Malik el-Shabazz, became and has endured as one of the great, albeit controversial, African American leaders. After his death Martin Luther King wrote, “While we did not always see eye to eye on methods to solve the race problem, I always had a deep affection for Malcolm and felt that he had a great ability to put his finger on the existence and root of the problem. He was an eloquent spokesman for his point of view and no one can honestly doubt that Malcolm had a great concern for the problems that we face as a race.” Martin Luther King was assassinated three years later, also at 39. One last thing, don’t forget that Friday night is the yearly tip o’ the hat to Mardi Gras hosted by the Legion Auxiliary who’ll be serving their Red Beans and Rice dinner with all the traditional fixins.

5th Graders Team Up With UNICEF

Howdy! From Lake Cuyamaca Hey….”Dusty Britches” here just letting you know that the fish are out in the Lake. I say that because we have been stocking on a regular basis and not many notable catches reported. If I’m lying… I’m dying. I’d rather tell the truth than put fish wrap around it. Part (or most) of the reason has a common denominator… weather. Some hearty anglers brave the elements to take a chance on catching some nice fish…. they’re out there, but the catch is very slow… that’s why they call it fishing! More carp have been taken than anything else… by bow or spear. When the trout decide to blow up, it should be epic with the number of fish we have been planting compared to the number taken… and the fewer anglers due to mother nature. I would like to relay a short story. Last weekend one of my rangers found an individual in the south parking lot who was about to launch his multi bladed drone. We have had a history with drones and drone operators who get a special feeling... close to a climax… by harassing and pestering our waterfowl, geese, deer, and other wildlife by buzzing them with their drones. We have declared Cuyamaca Lake a “NO DRONE ZONE” as a result. Getting back to the story… the person dismissed my ranger by telling him that he had a license and didn’t have to listen to him. No further action was taken. I heard this after the fact. We have two bald eagles and an immature golden eagle who have taken up roots here around the Lake and are seen almost on a daily basis. The next day another ranger, Jay Blaylock said that a local had taken some pictures of a dead “Bald Eagle” in the upper lake area. He showed the pictures to me and the pictures clearly depict the fact that one of the talons of the eagle was severed. I am still trying to find it, and hopefully will soon. I’m wondering if there is any interpretation of “NO DRONE ZONE” people might need…. I can’t prove that the bald eagle’s demise was a result of a drone harassing it, but I can clearly see an eagle defending itself, or another, against anything infringing on it’s space. The situation has been reported to the local Department of Fish and Wildlife ranger and we are trying to locate the bird. In the future, we won’t ask any questions. We will be calling the Sheriff and Department of Fish and Wildlife as soon as we encounter someone using drones around our Lake and don’t want to listen to us or go by the rules…. step back, and let them deal with these people. I am very sorry to say that the daily sightings of the other birds have not happened lately. On a lighter note… I’m here to say that “reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated”… .”Mark Twain” “Tight Lines and Bent Rods”… ”Dusty Britches”

February 22, 2017

10 The Julian News optimistic that other funders will follow in their footsteps to reenergize American cleantech innovation, create millions of new domestic green jobs, and help finally move us beyond fossil fuels. MIT Energy CONTACTS:


Dear EarthTalk: Is alternative energy still the next big thing for American venture capitalists? -- Jeffrey Moss, Fairfield, CT A decade ago, in the wake of Al Gore’s “An Inconvenient Truth” and rising gas/oil prices, many of the same venture capitalists (VCs) who had made fortunes betting on software, hardware, Internet and biotech start-ups began shifting significant chunks of their investment dollars over to alternative renewable energy and related investments, putting the so-called “cleantech” sector in the spotlight as the “new new thing.” Given growing global concern about greenhouse gas emissions and other pollution, it made sense that our highest stakes investors would be attracted to placing big bets on little companies jockeying to be the next major players in the fast growing alternative energy sector. But a funny thing happened on the way to the next round of initial public offerings (IPOs): the cleantech bubble burst. According to a July 2016 report from the MIT Energy Initiative, some three dozen U.S. venture capital firms poured some $25 billion in cleantech start-ups between 2006 and 2011—and lost over half their money: “The results are stark— cleantech offered a dismal risk/

Cleantech start-ups have floundered recently after an initial wave of investment a decade ago. But renewed interest in the space thanks to the Paris climate accord has re-energized innovation and attracted the attention of some well-known, deep-pocketed venture capital investors. Credit: Jeff Kubina, FlickrCC return profile, dragged down by companies developing new materials, chemistries or processes that never achieved manufacturing scale.” The MIT researchers studied the performance of hundreds of cleantech investments and compared the results against medical and software technology investments over the same sixyear period. Their conclusion? “The VC model is broken for the cleantech sector, which suffers especially from a dearth of large corporations willing to invest in innovation.” So where did cleantech go wrong? Unlucky timing may have had something to do with it, given the overall market collapse at the end of 2008. But the MIT researchers point out that cleantech start-ups have a longer timeframe of growth than, say, software ventures—and VCs don’t want to wait around for 15-20 years to cash in on their bets. Also, the cleantech sector

suffers from underdeveloped supply chains and an “immature acquisition space” compared to more conventional tech startups. The result is that most of the 150 renewable energy start-ups launched in Silicon Valley since 2006 are long gone. The flameout of high-flying solar tube manufacturer Solyndra—after securing $500 million in federal loan guarantees—undermined investor confidence in cleantech, while cheap natural gas and a glut of Chinese solar panel exports undercut the competitiveness of American start-ups in the sector. But cleantech’s fortunes may be turning around, given an influx of interest in leveraging technology and efficiency to help the U.S. meet its emissions reduction commitments under the Paris Climate Accord. Just prior to the landmark December 2015 Paris meeting, Bill Gates announced he was launching a new venture fund, the Breakthrough Energy Coalition—with a little help from 27 mega-rich friends like Jeff Bezos, Richard Branson and Mark Zuckerberg. The nascent billion dollar fund is focused on “fighting climate change by investing in clean energy innovation” and represents a new type of venture financing that aims to not only make money but to help solve social and environmental problems as well.

Tax Donations Help To Prevent Wildlife Extinction Extinction is forever, but you and the California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) can join forces to prevent it. Help save California’s native plant and animal species when you file your state income tax return by making a voluntary contribution to the Rare and Endangered Species Preservation Program (RESPP) and/or the California Sea Otter Fund.

Just enter any dollar amount you wish on line 403 for rare and endangered species and on line 410 for southern sea otters. Money donated by California’s taxpayers supports programs that benefit these at-risk species. “Taxpayers’ donations make more of a positive difference than one might think,” CDFW Wildlife Branch Chief T.O. Smith said. “Voluntary contributions also help CDFW acquire federal matching funds, increasing the actions we can take for threatened and endangered species and their habitat.” California has 219 species of plants and 83 species of animals

listed as rare, threatened or endangered. Money raised through the tax donation program helps pay for essential CDFW research and recovery efforts for these plants and animals, and critical efforts to restore and conserve their habitat. Endangered species face many different threats, such as the unprecedented tree die-off occurring in the Sierra Nevada mountains due to a combination of past forest management practices, warming climate, severe drought and bark beetles capitalizing on the dying trees. Past donations to the RESPP have enabled biologists to analyze data on the Tricolored blackbird (Agelaius tricolor) – North America’s most highly colonial land bird – to assess factors that may be affecting the species’ ability to survive and reproduce. Ninety-nine percent of the world’s Tricolored blackbird population lives within the State of California and statewide surveys have revealed that the species has declined by more than 60 percent in the past decade. CDFW has been working with multiple stakeholders to study the current distribution and status of the Giant garter snake (Thamnophis gigas) – a highly aquatic threatened species – and to improve habitat suitability and stability in areas hardest hit by the drought. Staff have participated in the California tiger salamander (Ambystoma californiense) Science Advisory Committee’s efforts to recover the threatened species, beginning with tackling the issue of how to reduce their hybridization with non-native tiger salamanders. CDFW is in the final stages of completing a conservation strategy for the state-listed Mohave ground squirrel (Xerospermophilus mohavensis), which will guide conservation and research projects to help ensure recovery of the species. With the assistance of biologists from other agencies, CDFW biologists have been monitoring endangered Desert pupfish (Cyprinodon macularius)

populations and water quality in natural and artificial habitats. Pupfish have been rescued from natural habitats that have dried during summer months and have been relocated to other areas. Recovery actions have included identification of habitat in need of restoration. RESPP funds supported the review of Livermore tarplant (Deinandra bacigalupii), which informed the Fish and Game Commission’s decision to protect the species under the California Endangered Species Act. Funds were also used to monitor several endangered plant species, including the critically endangered Slenderpetaled mustard (Thelypodium stenopetalum), found only near Big Bear Lake in the San Bernardino Mountains. The past five drought years have put endangered species at even greater risk as rivers and creeks have been impacted and seasonal and some permanent aquatic habitats dried up. CDFW has documented extremely low numbers and/or reproductive rates for winter-run Chinook Salmon (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha), Delta Smelt (Hypomesus transpacificus), Mohave ground squirrel, Giant kangaroo rat (Dipodomys ingens), Giant garter snake, Santa Cruz long-toed salamander (Ambystoma macrodactylum croceum; drought rescue story on our website), California tiger salamander and Sierra Nevada yellow-legged frog (Rana sierrae), among others. There is no upper limit to voluntary contributions; any dollar amount is welcome. These plants and animals are part of our heritage and need your support to survive and thrive. Donations to the California Sea Otter Fund are split between CDFW and the State Coastal Conservancy. CDFW’s half supports scientific research on the causes of mortality in sea otters (Enhydra lutris nereis). In addition to working on a large analysis of 15 years of mortality data, CDFW scientists are conducting research on littlecontinued on page 12

California Commentary

Senator Hertzberg Targets Homeowners With Higher Water And Sewer Rates

by Jon Coupal

It’s no secret that tax-andspend interests have hated Proposition 13 since its adoption by the voters in 1978. Immediately after passage, Prop. 13 was the target of numerous lawsuits and legislative proposals seeking to create loopholes that would allow government to grab more tax dollars from California citizens. These constant attacks compelled taxpayer advocates to go back to the voters with multiple initiatives to preserve the letter and spirit of Prop. 13. These included Prop. 62 in 1986 (voter approval for local taxes); Prop. 218 (closing loopholes for local fees and so-called “benefit assessments”); and Prop. 26 (requiring “fees” to have some nexus to the benefits conferred on the fee payers). However, the latest tax-grabber to treat homeowners as ATMs is state Senator Bob Hertzberg, D-Van Nuys. If he gets his way, Californians will be spending a lot more on water and sewer service. He seeks to do away with the critical “cost of service” requirements for water rates as well as treat “stormwater runoff ” (the rain that runs down street gutters) the same as “sewer service,” opening the door to virtually unlimited — and unvoted — sewer rates. As to the latter proposal, Hertzberg has introduced Senate Bill 231. This proposal would attempt to rewrite Prop. 218 with a statute to allow for stormwater to be included under the definition of “sewer,” meaning that it would no longer be subject to a Prop. 218 election. This is not a minor issue and, in fact, when the city of Salinas attempted to charge residents for “storm water runoff ” as part of their sewer bill, the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association sued and won. The published decision inHJTA v. City of Salinaswas a significant victory for homeowners as the city was attempting to load up its “sewer” service with all kinds of costs unrelated to sewer service including street sweeping. Of course, the real problem with SB231 is that it attempts to rewrite part of the California

Constitution with a mere statute. This is a big no-no. The city of Salinas decision was an interpretation of Prop. 218 which added Articles XIIIC and XIIID to the California Constitution. Courts are likely to take a dim view of a legislative override of their interpretation of the state constitution. To add insult to injury, Hertzberg has also introduced Senate Constitutional Amendment 4. While this bill is basically intent language and needs to be refined, the point of this bill will be to undermine Prop. 218’s proportionality and cost of service requirements. Under the state Constitution, rates for property related fees (water/sewer/refuse) need to be equivalent to the cost of providing the service. Taxpayers fear that SCA 4 will ultimately overrule another taxpayer court victory in the city of San Juan Capistrano which upheld the concept of “cost of service.” This decision has been misinterpreted by Gov. Brown and the media as prohibiting the ability of water districts to create tiered water rates. In truth, tiered water rates — charging more for higher levels of water use — can be legal if the municipality can demonstrate that the extra water costs more. What Hertzberg and big government bureaucrats want to do, however, is to use water rates as another opportunity to engage in social engineering. They wish to charge those water users they perceive as “bad” more per gallon than those users they perceive as “good.” The beauty of “cost of service” rates, however, is that they are fair for everyone: You pay for what you use. More importantly, when government deviates from “cost of service” requirements, it expands the opportunity for them to do what they do best — extract more money from citizens.

Jon Coupal is president of the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association — California’s largest grass-roots taxpayer organization, dedicated to the protection of Proposition 13 and the advancement of taxpayers’ rights.

Through a better understanding of the causes of mortality, it may be possible to work more effectively to recover the sea otter population here. The Southern sea otter is listed as threatened under the federal Endangered Species Act, depleted under the Marine Mammal Protection Act, and “fully protected” by the State of California.

“This voluntary contribution program provides important funding for understanding sea otter health and implementing programs to help recover the Southern sea otter population,” said CDFW Sea Otter Program Manager Laird Henkel. “Our team and collaborators are currently in the final stages of summarizing 15 years of sea otter post-mortem investigations, largely supported by this tax check-off program. We’re excited that we’ll have this information to share later this year.” CDFW is also collaborating with Friends of the Sea Otter and others on the ‘Sea Otter Savvy’ program. Also supported primarily by tax check-off contributions, this program is designed to reduce human disturbance to sea otters.

You can reduce the risk of falling by adding grab bars near the toilet, along the showerhead wall and on the back wall of the tub or shower. Grab bars also provide assistance for getting in and out of the tub, as well raising or lowering yourself onto the toilet. Because people of all ages are prone to injury, adding these safety features is a good idea for every household. And these days, you can do so without compromising on style -- brands like Moen offer grab bars in different sizes, finishes and styles, so these elements can blend seamlessly into any décor. With a few simple considerations, you can prioritize safety in your home’s bathrooms.

when food is boiled in a normal pot. This speeds up the cooking process considerably. The intense pressure also reduces cooking time by one-third, which saves energy too. It also keeps your kitchen cool, retains more than 50 percent of the vitamins and minerals in your foods -- as well as the natural colors -- and can cook without oil to reduce fat and calories. The steam pressure breaks down the fibers in food in a very short time, leaving food moist and succulent, with an intense intermingling of flavors. The beauty of using a pressure cooker is that you can quickly and easily turn almost any type of produce, grain or cut of meat into a fantastic meal. And don’t forget about desserts, which can be made in half the time. If you haven’t used a pressure cooker before, my recipe for Pressure Cooker Quinoa Salad is a simple and tasty introduction to this wonderful piece of kitchen equipment. PRESSURE COOKER QUINOA SALAD (Serves 6) Quinoa is a complete protein source that also is high in iron, magnesium and fiber. It has a delicate, slightly sweet and nutty flavor, and easily can be used in any recipe that calls for rice or pasta. Quinoa has a natural coating, called saponin. Saponin can make the cooked grain taste bitter if it isn’t rinsed thoroughly just before cooking. Boxed quinoa is often pre-rinsed, but it’s best to rinse it again. Toasting quinoa after it has been rinsed improves the texture of the grain. You can change this recipe to incorporate your favorite herbs, spices, vegetables and flavorings as desired. 1 cup black quinoa, rinsed well 1 teaspoon olive oil plus more for drizzling (about 2 tablespoons) 1 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon ground black pepper 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper 1 1/2 cups of water or broth 1 large lime or lemon, zested and juiced 1 1/2 cups of chopped, raw

vegetables (bell pepper, purple onion, celery, avocado, cucumbers, tomatoes, etc.) 1. Measure 1 cup of quinoa and place into a fine-mesh strainer. Rinse thoroughly with cool water for about 2 minutes, rubbing and swishing the quinoa with your hand. Drain. 2. Heat the olive oil in the pressure cooker pot (without the lid) over medium-high heat. Add the drained quinoa, salt, pepper, garlic powder and cayenne pepper. Cook, stirring, for about 1 minute to let the water evaporate and to toast the quinoa and the spices. Add the water or broth, mixing well. 3. Close and lock the lid according to manufacturer’s instructions. Turn heat to high; when pressure is reached, lower the heat and cook for 1 minute at high pressure (or 2 minutes at low pressure). To release the pressure, turn off heat and wait 10 minutes for steam to release naturally. Then release the remaining pressure by carefully opening the valve. (Even if you hear the pressure releasing completely before the 10 minutes are up, do not remove the lid.) 4. When the time is up, remove the lid and fluff the quinoa gently with a fork. Toss quinoa with the zest, juice, vegetables and a drizzle of olive oil.

Gym Restoration

By: Veronica Lopez

Class Points

by Chelsea Vickers

Spirit week is when the Julian High School has one week where each day there is something that you can wear to gain points for your class. If you wear what is on the list, you gain points for your grade level. It is a big contest to see which class has the most school spirit.

Every school has its ups and downs, and JHS with its financial problems is no different. There is hope, however, on the horizon. The school recently undertook a project to refurbish the gym in an effort to make the most of what we have. These past few months alone have been a time of growth. Many people have stepped up their game to not only help keep Julian High School just as good but also make it even better than before. Recently, our teacher, Community Service Club Advisor and Lady Eagles Basketball Coach, Jennifer Wylie took on a major project: restoring the high school gym. This was no easy task, but with the help from many hard working volunteers, students, and the Booster club, the gym was successfully cleaned and repainted. All winter coaches who use the gym and many winter athletes were present to help this project. The walls were cleaned, patched, and repainted. The Eagle was restored, the lights changed, new carpet was put down, as well as many other improvements. Not only does this project help the basketball players, but it also helps the school as a whole. We are restoring school pride and spirit. Coach Wylie always states, “If you look good, you feel good, and if you feel good you play good.” After the clean up, the players are definitely feeling good in their gym. The restoration also helps the school by showing that we should still take pride in what we have. It is fair to say that we, as student athletes, made a mark on our school. All-in-all, despite the struggles we are going through, we are Eagles and we are not going to let a few obstacles take our pride away from us. Go Eagles!

JHS pep rally coordinators Raye Smothers and Brooke Ballard As always you will have that one student that always does what is on the list and will go above and beyond and will be fully committed to the topic of the day. Although you have the fully committed people, you also have the students that just don’t care about it and don’t try at all. The first day of Spirit Week was Pajama Day. One saw students that simply wore their pajamas but you also had the ones that went to the extreme and bought pajamas that had holiday prints on them. There are also kids that bring extra stuff for other people to wear. For example, on the Festive Day (which is when you wear red or green) some people bring extra for the other students that either forgot or didn’t have those colors in their wardrobe. This way their class can get the most points as possible. Each grade’s goal is to win the Class Points, because when your class wins you get money put toward your grade. All of the classes need money to put on dances and other activities. At the end of the school year this year's Freshmen will put on the “Welcome Freshman dance.” The Sophomores put on the Talent Show, the Juniors put on the Prom, and the Seniors have to pay for their senior trip and class gift. Therefore, whichever class wins the class points wins money. So far Julian has had two Spirit Weeks which are the majority of the way classes can earn class points.

Is College Necessary After High School? A Message To My Fellow Peers

by Brooke Ballard

There is a question I ask myself all the time. People are constantly asking me what my plans are after high school and if I’m going to college. I don’t want to go to a 4-year college; instead my plan is to go to culinary school. I’ve asked multiple people in Julian about college, and the majority say it is definitely necessary. I don’t agree. Others have complained about the massive amounts of debt from their children, some who are still paying it off. As high school students we are still figuring out what we want to do, but it’s not always appropriate to pay thousands of dollars to do so. The federal government is still paying for the majority of adolescents college loans and they’re in the hole $20.1 trillion. Our generation is the one who has to deal with this debt. Here’s a Google fact for you, “ About 40 million Americans hold student loans and about 70% of bachelor's degree recipients graduate with debt.” I say go for it if you know what you want to do and have a plan but don’t go just to go. In my opinion too many students are just going to college because it’s what they’ve been told their whole lives. You don’t have to. Do what YOU want to do. If you’re still figuring it out, go to a JC and it will be SO much cheaper! Personally I do not think it’s necessary but I’m sure it’s a super exciting experience to go to a 4-year school. You should be, however, saving up for it like anything else you’d want, such as a new pair of shoes or a car. You can also apply for grants and scholarships. If anyone wants something THAT badly, they’ll do whatever it takes to go and get it. Let’s go over some perks. Lots of people talk about “the college experience,” the parties, the people you’ll meet, etc. The dorms are like apartments so you experience the process of leaving home and sometimes sharing a room with a companion. Super cool! You’re starting to take off your training wheels and become an adult! Another big one is the loads of money you’ll make with a degree. If you know what you want to do, you have to go. Keep in mind that there are other jobs that don’t require a college degree. You could be a small business owner for example. I know people that went to college and aren’t even using it in their careers today. Just something to consider. Don’t go to college just because someone else is obligating you to. Make a plan and work for it. I highly recommend getting a job so you can start saving up for college if you’re considering it and you want to go. Also, find your passion. College isn’t for everyone. Take a step back and realize what you want to do and do what you love. Don’t let others pick your obligations for you. Do what is going to make you happy whether it’s making lots of money or making people happy. Go for it! For example I want to do something with culinary arts. If I end up wanting to run a business of my own I will do whatever it takes because it’s what I want to do. You’re future is super exciting to think about but at the same time it can also be intimidating. Your job right now is to find your path to the pursuit of happiness. Simply go to college if you want to, but don’t if you don’t want to.

The Snow Cycle

Poem by Trenton Mercer

Snow falls lightly to the ground Individually lost but united they’re found This type of weather Can bring people together From all around People come to town With families for fun In snow they frolic and run The fun eventually comes to an end As the snow melts, people leave Quickly, back around the bend With all their wants now achieved We all know when The snow comes back they’ll return again.

White Christmas

Another way to get points is when we have pep rallies with games. Who ever wins the relay or the game then gains more class points and then their grade is able to move ahead on the scoreboard. The way that the points are added during Spirit Week is there is a Senior and Junior that go around to all of the classes around first period to count who all has worn the selected item. The reason there is a Junior and Senior is to make sure that one class isn’t cheating and does it all by honor. Most of the students at Julian High School are generally competitive when it comes to the class points because, at the end of the year, we all want to win. If the Seniors win at the end of the year then they get to choose the class the points go to going into the next year. Class Points: Freshman = 213, Sophomores = 207, Jr = 345, Sr = 334

by Alex Carson

Over the holidays in Julian we can finally say we had a very merry white Christmas. We saw inches of snow and hordes of tourists flocking to to our small mountain community. This means more pie, more cocoa, and more unforgettable memories. Julian is a niche community, comprised of the most wonderful mix of locals and tourists. With such a variety of population you hear many different accents, languages, and forms of appreciation of Julian. If it weren’t for this vast population Julian would never be able to truly thrive. The locals and visitors of Julian are gifted with some extremely unique weather. Whether it be inches of sideways rain or the rare Californian snow, we get to see the beauty weather has to offer. Sometimes, however, this beautiful weather can be extreme, even if our state has been in a severe drought for the past 4 years. This year we got a lot of snow, and that will definitely make 2016 memorable to the residents and tourists of julian. Don’t forget the fact that this was our first white christmas since 2009! This white winter stayed in our small town for a few weeks. During these few weeks the town was full of tourists, smiles, and joy. Endless amounts of pie was eaten, and an endless amount of cocoa was drank. Unfortunately, the tourists went away as fast as the snow melted, leaving Julian as the thriving mountain community it always has been and always will be.

At the moment, I am fighting for a league title in my Senior year basketball season. The squeak of basketball shoes, the swish from a perfect shot, and the smell of sweat and victory fills my ears and nose as I sleep, dreaming of that last history making win marking a change for the Julian Lady Eagles’ basketball team. I have this burning desire to make this dream a reality. At the moment, there’s nothing I want more. But making it a reality isn’t as easy as closing my eyes and falling asleep. I know it’s going to take hard work, and it has it been hard work so far. It’s rough having a school and community that expects you to lose. Who can blame them when the Lady Eagles have had one of the worst records in Julian High School history since I have been a student. But I think the biggest hardship I have come to face is the battle between my ears. It was December 23rd 2016, and the team was at a tournament over Christmas break. Our main point guard was out sick, and I was going to play point guard at this game, calling the plays and leading the team. We played El Cajon Valley High School where we were faced with some of the meanest girls and with referees who, as it seemed, would blow the whistle every time our team touched the ball. My coach urged the team and I to continue with confidence, but the pushing and the bad calls had drown out the encouraging advice from Coach. The only voice I could hear was my own, telling me, “You’re not good enough, just give up.” This played like a broken record over and over in my mind. Halftime hit, and there I was sobbing on the court telling my coach that I couldn’t do it. After sending the rest of the team back onto the court to get ready for second half, she took me into her arms and told me words I will never forget, “You are enough.” With these words I pushed through the second half. It was hard taking a loss like that, but we didn’t give up. I didn’t truly feel the intensity of these words until I was able to think long and hard about them. I had this internal conflict in my mind about whether I even wanted to play basketball anymore. I feared that I lacked the skill, mindset and confidence of a good basketball player. These thoughts of negativity consumed my mind to the point where I did consider quitting. That’s always the easy way out. We had never won any games in the previous seasons, Why did I even come back for this season? And that’s when it hit me, “Why DID I even come back?” I thought. I came to realize that I wanted to come back every season simply for the love of the game. When I thought about basketball I didn’t think about winning, losing or being the star player that everyone comes to see. I thought about the squeak of basketball shoes, the swish from a perfect shot, and the smell of sweat, and victory- but not a victory of scoring more points than the other team marking a win, but a victory of getting the privilege to play the greatest sport on Earth. I now know that playing the sport I love is enough for me, and that I, I am enough for it. I have a strong healthy body, a mind that knows the rules of basketball, and a heart that loves the game. That’s all I need to be a good player. With all of that being said, basketball has become my metaphor for life. Long after this season is over, whether we win league or not, and long after I graduate from high school, this experience and the hardships that came with it, is what will lead me to accomplish all the big dreams I get. Reaching the point where I almost broke down and quit is what made me realize that if you have a passion for something it doesn’t matter if you are the best. What matters is if you are trying your best and putting every last piece of your soul into what you love. There’s going to be obstacles, and you’re going to want to take the easy way out. But you have to push through! Life is about heart, hustle and dreaming big. I don’t fear taking on this season anymore because the best part about being the underdog and having the worst record is that there is nothing to lose, only to gain. The Lady Eagles, in little ole Julian--we are enough.

To all heirs, beneficiaries, creditors, contingent creditors, and persons who may otherwise be interested in the will or estate, or both, of GUS C. DEDES. A Petition for Probate has been filed by LINDA S. MARCHESE in the Superior Court of California, County of SAN DIEGO, requesting that LINDA S. MARCHESE be appointed as personal representative to administer the estate of GUS C. DEDES. The petition requests the decedent’s will and codicils, if any, be admitted to probate. The will and codicils are available for examination in the file kept by the court. The petition requests authority to administer the estate under the Independent Administration of Estates Act. (This authority will allow the personal representative to take many actions without obtaining court approval. Before taking certain very important actions, however, the personal representative will be required to give notice to interested persons unless they have waived notice or have consented to the proposed action.) The independent administration authority will be granted unless an interested person files an objection to the petition and shows good cause why the court should not grant the authority. A hearing on the petition will be held as follows: Date: MARCH 16, 2017 Time: 1:30 PM Dept. No. PC-3 Address of court: 1409 Fourth Avenue, San Diego, CA 92101 Madge Bradley Building

LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) It's nice to know that you're finally getting due credit for your efforts. You also should know that new opportunities will follow. A family member brings important news. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Any uncertainty that begins to cloud an impending decision could signal a need to reexamine your reasons for wanting to take on this commitment. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) You benefit from taking time out of your currently hectic schedule to do more contemplation or meditation. This will help re-energize you, both in body and soul. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Nursing hurt feelings can zap the energies of even the usually self-confident Sea Goat. Best advice: Move forward. Success is the best balm for a painful ego. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) A display of temperament surprises you, as well as those around you. It could be all that pressure you're under. Consider letting someone help you see it through. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Some things don't seem to be working out as you'd hoped. Don't fret. Instead, take some time out to reassess your plans and see where changes could be made. BORN THIS WEEK: You enjoy traveling and meeting people. You are especially good with children and would make an excellent teacher.



ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Your ideas are finally reaching those who can appreciate them. But don't expect any immediate reactions. That will come later. Meanwhile, a personal matter needs your attention. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Your energy levels are rising, and you're feeling restless and eager to get into some activity, whether it's for profit or just for fun. In either case, the aspects are highly favorable, so go for it. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A relationship seems to be winding down from passionate to passive. It's up to you to decide what the next step will be. But don't wait too long to take the initiative. Delay could create more problems. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) A decision looms. But be very sure that this is what you really want before you sign or say anything. Once you act, there'll be little or no wiggle room for any adjustments. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Money matters improve, but you still need to be cautious with your spending. Also, set aside that Leonine pride for a bit and apologize for contributing to that misunderstanding. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) A tempting financial situation could make the usually unflappable Virgo rush in before checking things out. Be alert to possible hidden problems. Get the facts before you act.
