New Lanterns Restore Light to Julian Union High School

By Ann Reilly Cole ~ the journal


xposed wires stuck out from the top of stone pillars in front of Julian Union High School for so long that no one remembers what happened to the original light fixtures that lit its entrance. Tired of seeing this eyesore, JUHS Board Member Dennis Cantor decided to remedy the situation. He reached out to the community for any information about what was once there. The result was a single response — a grainy photo copied from a 1954 high school yearbook depicting one of the stone pillars, complete with a lamp, plaque and sign. This was enough to get him started. Using clues from the historic photo and the stone pillars themselves, Cantor recreated the scene. A footprint on top of the pillars from repainting the old lamps provided accurate dimensions for the lamp base. Cantor hired local metalworker Mark Blenkush to fabricate the bases. An online search turned up modern,

electricity. The modern fixtures, lit by LED bulbs, gave off a blue hue that Cantor felt didn’t fit with the amber cast of the existing parking lot lights. He frosted the glass and covered the bulb with a translucent amber plastic film to create a uniform look. A search for the missing plaque ended at the school vault, where three bronze plaques had been stored for many years. On the left side of the entrance, Cantor placed a plaque identifying the stonework as being built in 1940 by the United States Work Projects Administration. On the other pillar, a plaque commemorates the 1941 school board and includes the names of A.M. Lewis, Mary Starr and Ray Redding. All are well known to longtime Julian Julian Union High School Board Member Dennis Cantor near one of two newly installed residents. The third plaque, dated 1956, will be installed near an entrance to solar-powered lights and a reinstalled commemorative plaque at the entrance to the school. the high school parking lot During the process, Cantor learned Photo by Ann Reilly Cole that a time capsule is inside one of the columns. He doesn’t know what is in four-sided carriage lights powered by it, if there are plans to examine its consolar photocells that looked remarkably tents, or even if it is possible to access like the original lights and which it. He said he welcomes any information eliminated the problem of providing

about the capsule. To complete the restoration, Cantor thought about recreating the Arts and Crafts-style sign, which the yearbook photo shows hanging in front of the pillar. However, discovering that the signs would obstruct the view of traffic, he decided against it. The project took some four months at a cost of about $600, which Cantor paid for personally. JUHS will maintain the lights, which should be as simple as replacing the batteries every four years. “I do have a feeling of satisfaction,” said Cantor at the project’s completion. A sense of accomplishment notwithstanding, Cantor has his sights set on further improvements to the high school campus. He has long wanted to create a “hall of fame,” using photos of successful alumni to inspire today’s students to the possibilities available to them. He would also like to ask community groups to sponsor plantings at the campus and get some shade trees installed. His biggest dream, though, is to improve the little theater with a new sound system, a stage curtain and other amenities. n

Grape Stomp Festa Celebrates the Harvest

By Annette Williams ~ the journal


ith about 1,500 in attendance, this year’s Julian Grape Stomp Festa was a success, according to event organizers. All ages come to celebrate the harvest, with children enjoying fun activities and their own grape stomping barrel, which was separate from a barrel for the grownups. “It went really well,” said Krisie Morgan, office manager for the Julian Chamber of Commerce, the event sponsor. “We actually made a pretty good profit.” Morgan said that guests came from near and far, including folks from Orange County, Palm Springs and Yuma. “It’s a good time of year for them,” she said of the desert residents. The VIP tent returned for a second year. “It was fun, relaxing, and they really enjoyed it,” she said, adding that at one time, all of the tables were full. Morgan credited Jennifer Reed for improvements that enhanced the children’s activity area this year. “It was a total success,” Morgan said. “She and her mother did a wonderful job!” n

Julian Cuyamaca CERT to Host Open House

ulian Cuyamaca CERT/Teen CERT invites the public to a “Circle The Wagons Open House” on Oct. 17, from noon to 6 p.m., in the program’s Emergency Operations Center, 1461 Hollow Glen Rd. Julian Cuyamaca CERT/Teen CERT is sponsored by the Julian Cuyamaca Resource Center, Inc., a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization established after the Cedar Fire in 2003, and the San Diego North Citizen Corps Council, established in 2011, which supports non-governmental agencies such as faith-based groups, CERT and emergency managers. “Our mission continues to be focused on whole-community preparedness with mutual aid agreements with neighboring communities while building strong outreach relationships,” said Program Manager Diane Hake. “Our partners include but are not limited to FEMA, Department of Homeland Security, California Volunteers, CAL OES, (Office of Emergency Services), CAL EMS, (Emergency Management Services), San Diego County EMS, (Emergency Medical Services), Julian Union School District, Julian Union High School District, Julian Chamber of Commerce and Merchants Association, REA, (Rural Emergency Alliance — Sister Corporation in Valley Center), American Red Cross, VOAD, (Volunteer Organization

Active in Disaster), Tribal Agencies and SDG&E.” Hake says that since 2009, there are more than 1,000 people in Julian, Shelter Valley, Canebrake, Mount Laguna, Warner Springs and Ramona who have become better prepared for a disaster as a result of the program. As for teens, Hake said, “We remain the only active Teen CERT program in San Diego County,” with teens coming from Julian Junior High School, Julian Union High School, Girl Scouts, Venture Crew, Civil Air Patrol Cadets from San Diego and Rancho Bernardo, and tribal communities. “The U.S. Naval Sea Cadets have scheduled classes for February and March of 2016.” Julian Cuyamaca CERT trainers Diane Hake, Johnny Hake and Fallbrook resident Sheri Rumble were invited to teach trainers for law enforcement officers, firefighters and City Emergency Managers in Beaumont, Calif., Hake said. “Additionally, we were asked to teach the first CERT class, including the Train-The-Trainers classes in Mexico for Youth With A Mission, (YWAM). One of the new instructors took the information to their Dominican Republic YWAM.” Julian Cuyamaca CERT and Teen CERT members have assisted with community events by helping to ensure safer

activities, providing more 39,000 hours of service since 2009, as well training for 40-plus ham radio operators, including techs, generals and extras. “Through county grants, we have been able to issue radios and training aids in order to practice communication and lifesaving skills in preparation of an actual event,” she said. “We would like to thank Rural Emergency Alliance (REA) for their assistance in developing a Medical Reserve Corps, (MRC). So far, a retired trauma doctor, chiropractor, eight nurses, two massage therapists, a medic, paramedic, EMTs and a corpsman have signed up to be leaders for the MRC.” Hake says that the CERT program maintains a cache of medical supplies and equipment to provide basic life support for catastrophic, multi-casualty incidents, available 24 hours a day and seven days a week from five strategically placed trailers, as well as 10- to 100-person “mayday trauma bags” placed in Julian, Shelter Valley, Canebrake and Cuyamaca. These supplies and emergency equipment are meant to assist in sustained multi-casualty incident support without depleting fire department or ambulance resources. Also, she said, “One of the Julian Cuyamaca CERT members is an FAA-registered drone operator for Search and Rescue and

will be working in cooperation with the managing officials.” In 2013, Julian Cuyamaca CERT arranged for three foodservice vendors — the American Legion Post, Jeremy’s on The Hill and Julian Café and Bakery — who have signed agreements

with the American Red Cross. The open house will have resources on display, and the newly added CERT mobile field kitchen will serve barbecue. Email Hake at certjulian@ hotmail.com. n

Community Yard Sale Set for Fifth Year By Ann Reilly Cole ~ the journal


ot stuff you don’t need? Looking for something you want? It’s time once again for sellers to sort through closets and garages for unwanted clothes, furniture and household items, and for buyers to grab some cash and go bargain hunting at the fifth annual Community Yard Sale on Saturday, Oct. 17, sponsored by Rick Dyer of Apple Tree Realty. The sale starts at 8 a.m. — no early birds — and runs till the last garage door drops. A map of participating locations can be downloaded at www.julianappletree.com. The free event, which is always held the third Saturday in October, includes sellers from Wynola to Pine Hills, and from Kentwood and Whispering Pines out to Cuyamaca, and gives tourists a good excuse to visit Julian and

see the fall colors. The annual sale has grown consistently over its five-year history. Last year, 10,000 people downloaded the map that listed sellers, many of whom reported selling 80 percent of their surplus stuff. In an interesting twist, fewer people have registered each year, but more families participate by grouping together in their neighborhoods under one registration. This generates even more interest for the many buyers who come from as far as San Diego, Encinitas and Riverside to attend the treasure hunt. “Boy, it was festive last year in Pine Hills,” said Dyer, who noted that it seemed more like a block party, with everyone in the neighborhood participating and having a good time. Dyer got the idea to sponsor a community yard sale from Jan Ryan of RE/MAX in Ramona,

Rick Dyer in front of his Apple Tree Realty office holds signs from last year’s garage sale. Photo by Ann Reilly Cole

who has been sponsoring a similar sale in San Diego Country Estates for 15 years. Dyer says he spends a lot to put on the Julian event, providing a free sign to registrants and advertising in local publications and in the San Diego UnionTribune. He fields calls from people eager to attend and puts together a detailed map that makes it possible for folks to find their way into areas of Julian they might not visit during a typical tourist excursion to the town. While Dyer believes the community sale is good for local restaurants and merchants, as it draws more and

more shoppers each year, he is not aware of any connection between yard sale participants and real estate listings or sales at his office. For Dyer, organizing the yard sale is one way he enjoys giving back to the community, although he thinks it is likely good word-of-mouth to have people associate his name with making a bit of extra money, especially before the holidays. New this year, a local women’s giving circle will set up their yard sale in the Wynola Pizza & Bistro parking lot to raise money for Women’s Empowerment International, an organization that provides micro loans of $25 to poor women locally and throughout the world to work their way out of poverty by starting their own business. The organization’s goal is to eradicate extreme poverty by 2030. The Julian Circle says it will donate 100 percent of their proceeds to the international organization. Those who would like to donate items to the cause may bring their items priced and ready to sell by 10 a.m. to the Wynola Pizza parking lot at 4355 Highway 78 on garage sale day. Whether you are buying or selling, or maybe a little of both, the annual community yard sale is a deal you won’t want to miss. n

The Territory. . . Julian and Beyond The Talk Turned To Flight

n interview with Charlie Wood for a Veterans Day story was to be about his World War II experiences, but he begged off. “I don’t talk about it much,” he said. “But, I guess, that’s fine for people who haven’t done anything else in their life. He did say that he had been a pilot of a torpedo bomber starting in 1942, participating in Pacific operations over Borneo and the Marshall and Gilbert islands. “Most of my squadron have passed away,” he said. “That’s upsetting to me, because they were a lot younger than me.” I reached Charlie at his workplace, Quinn Knives, where he works full time. It’s a job he describes as “fun.” At 92, that’s pretty good. He has the time to be at the shop now that he “retired” his two computers. “Got rid of them,” he said. He also sold his personal biplane. After the war, Charlie returned to the air as a flight instructor, plane salesman and restorer, and airline and charter plane pilot. He kept his eyes in the clouds. “I flew in Asia, Europe, and Central and South America as a Braniff Airways pilot,” he said. Then, he had flight schools in San Diego and Imperial counties. When not doing that, his sales approach included Beechcraft, Cessna and Piper aircraft. “I restored a 1936 Fairchild and a 1932 complicated Waco-style biplane, my personal airplane for almost 60 years,” he said. “It had a big 300-horsepower engine, and it was very fast.” He said he’s lived in Julian since 1972, and he can remember camping here as a youngster in the 1920s and ‘30s.

“I did what I wanted and what I liked to do,” he said.

Golf Director Named While privileged golfers test the revamped Warner Springs Ranch Resort (WSRR) Golf Course, officials say the grand re-opening is still to be announced for sometime in the fall. Meanwhile, Roxanne Mueller has been named director of golf, following the announcement of Byron Casper as the head professional there. Mueller previously served as the women’s assistant golf coach at California State University, San Marcos. She also worked as a sales manager for American Club Exchange, planning special tournament events, and developing marketing strategies to increase course memberships. Additionally, Mueller served as a merchandising assistant golf professional at the Golf Club of California at Fallbrook, and as the first assistant golf professional at San Luis Rey Downs Golf Resort. “Roxy’s knowledge and experience within the industry were exactly what we were looking for to fill the position,” said WSRR spokesman William H. McWethy Jr. “Her passion for the game is infectious, and guests will enjoy working with her.”

Da Vinci Exhibit Opens The San Diego Air & Space Museum in Balboa Park is featuring the work of renaissance man Leonardo da Vinci

in a special exhibition, “Da Vinci: The Ultimate Innovator,” continuing through 2016. He made the first real studies of flight in the 1480s and had more than 100 drawings that illustrated his theories on the subject. Some experts feel that the modern-

day helicopter was inspired by da Vinci’s concept. Da Vinci was much more than an artist. He was an astronomer, sculptor, geologist, mathematician, botanist, animal behaviorist, inventor, engineer, architect and even a musician. n

The Big Kitchen Remodel Question: Refinish, Reface, or Replace Your Old Cabinets?

For homeowners who want to modernize their old kitchen, the big question is, should I refinish, reface or replace my older cabinets? I recommend each case be reviewed based on the answer to several qualifying questions. First, what are your main reasons for modernizing your kitchen? • Eliminate the ugly and impossible-tomaintain tile countertops. • Increase the food preparation space. • Improve cabinet access and increase storage. • Make my kitchen an inviting and exciting part of my home. Are you planning on staying in this home for a long time? • Yes, we have decided this is something we want for ourselves. • Maybe, we might downsize in the next few years. • No, we will be moving soon. Do the existing cabinets have high quality hinges, drawer guides and interiors? • Not sure. Everything works but the house was built 25 years ago. • No, the drawers are difficult to operate and the hinges are exposed. • Yes, the builder used good materials and the only problem is the look. Do you have a budget allowance that may influence your choices? • Yes, we are on a fixed income and can’t spend our retirement to do this. • We have no idea what the costs may be, so we have not developed a budget. • We are prepared to do what it takes, but it has to be within reason. My recommendations flow from the answers to these fundamental issues. For example, it doesn’t


make sense to put brand-new granite countertops on top of broken-down, 25-year-old cabinets. Sometimes the cabinets are still in good operating order and refinishing is the right choice. That determination should be made after a professional inspects them inside and out. The next step is to assess the workability of the kitchen layout; do you have low-hanging cabinets blocking the view into the adjacent family room? Do you have more than one way in and out of the kitchen? Is there adequate preparation and staging space to properly prepare and serve a meal? Can you reach into the corners of the lower cabinets to retrieve stored goods? Are the shelves properly secured and sealed from contaminants from canned foods or storage containers? Finally, if you need to replace all or most of the appliances, including the sink and faucet, this may be the best time to make the corrections in the other aspects of the kitchen that constantly remind you that it was built 25 years ago. Many companies advertise that they can reface your existing cabinets for half the cost of replacement cabinetry. This would be true if you did nothing other than re-dress the cabinets, but if you are going to replace the countertops, appliances, lighting and flooring, it may save you as little as 10%. That is because the majority of the cost in cabinetry is in the doors and drawers, all of which get replaced in a reface job anyway. My advice is to consult a kitchen design professional before you make any major decisions regarding your kitchen project. The right decision will be much easier if you have reviewed all of your options.

Behind the Wheel By Johnny McDonald


Gurney Still Dynamic at the Dyno

ndomitable Dan Gurney, who has conquered the world’s greatest racetracks as a driver and car builder, has embarked on an ambitious challenge with a new engine.

American Racers (AAR) plant in Santa Ana. He has the patent for what he hopes will scale the heights comparable to his successful Eagle racecar with victories

21 of the 33 qualified Indy 500 cars were Eagles. I joked with Gurney that when he won a race pole, he was always urged to tear down the engine to see why it ran so well. The man who raced in his first sports car race at Torrey Pines back in 1959, emailed me about his new venture. “Simulation numbers are so good that we don’t want to ‘crow’ about them before we actually see them on the dyno or in a vehicle,” he said. “We are designing and building a brand-new motorcycle

and boats, as well.” He said he plans to have the first of five prototypes running on his test rig by the end of this year. “I want potentially interested people or organizations to be aware of what we are attempting to demonstrate.” He added, “So far, we only have simulation data, which we are working with, but it all looks very good — turbine smoothness, simplicity and compactness.” The patent is labeled “Moment-Cancelling 4-stroke engine,” 110 cubic inch — 1800 cc. “I want to have a go at making the internal combustion engine even more competitive with electric power,” he continued. “There are many rules of design that cause compromises,” he said. “Generally, if you make a very high power for a certain size reciprocating engine, then you compromise the endurance and a trouble-free performance.” He admits that in other projects he experienced many troubles, with many attempts that came up short and some successes about which he was proudest. As a modifier of different engines, Gurney certainly qualifies as a true tester. “It finally dawned on me that AAR could design and build a whole engine from scratch if we had the desire,” he said.

“My close collaborator Chuck Palmgren has had much experience with internal combustion engines during his career as an AMA Grand National Flat Track and Road Race motorcyclist. Being competitors, we agreed that we should pool all of our knowledge.”

Lives Lost Despite Safety Today’s cars are safer than they’ve ever been, with increasing numbers of models delivering top scores in what have become stricter crash tests, and offering an array of the latest safety features. There are airbags in the front, rear and sides of a vehicle, with some even at knee height, mounted between the front seats and incorporated into the rear shoulder belts. There are backup cameras, lane departure and blind spot warning systems and forward auto-braking systems now being offered on all but the smallest and cheapest models. And yet, nearly 19,000 lives were lost in traffic accidents over the first six months of 2015, according to preliminary statistics just released by the National Safety Council. n Johnny McDonald’s book “San Diego Motorsports 100 Racing Years — A Johnny McDonald Collection” is back in print, published by Williams Savage Books and available on Amazon.com.

The Back Country Quilters’ Annual Quilt Show Oct. 16 and 17 is the group’s 16th year of showcasing intricate and colorful quilts from club members and the community. The group expects about 100 quilts of all colors, shapes and sizes at the free event. The prized opportunity quilt is called “Rhythm In Blues,” and will be awarded when the winning ticket is selected Oct. 17 at 3:30 p.m. New this year will be a special quilt on display called “Sunbonnet Betty and Bob,” made by members of the club, featuring appliqued and embroidered scenes of Ramona. “It’s very intriguing,” says club member Eleanor Kerbs. “There are a lot of things to look at on it.” There will be two quilts and a number baskets in the silent auction, in addition to drawings for door prizes every hour, vendor booths, and food and snack items offered for sale. The popular consignment store will offer unique gifts and holiday-themed merchandise. Also for sale will be quilting and sewing supplies, fabric, partially completed

he best way to stay healthy is to live a healthy lifestyle. You can live a healthy lifestyle and prevent disease by exercising, eating well, keeping a healthy weight and not smoking. Medicare can help. Medicare pays for many preventive services to keep you healthy. Preventive services can find health problems early, when treatment works best, and can keep you from getting certain diseases. Preventive services include exams, shots, lab tests and screenings. They also include programs for health monitoring, counseling and education to help you take care of your own health. There are no co-pays for many of Medicare’s preventive health benefits. The idea is to encourage people with Medicare to get more preventive screenings and counseling to help them lead healthier, longer lives. For example, you no longer face any out-of-pocket expenses when you get a “Welcome to Medicare” physical exam. This one-time exam is offered during the first 12 months after you’ve enrolled in Medicare Part B. During the exam, your doctor will record your medical history and check your height, weight and blood pressure. He or she will also calculate your body mass index, give you a simple vision test and advise you on preventing disease and staying healthy. In addition, there is a free annual wellness exam provided to people with Medicare. When you get this exam, your doctor will go over your medical and family history and develop or update a personalized prevention plan for you. Your doctor also will check for any cognitive impairment and risk factors for depression, and review your functional ability and level of safety. Medicare also covers shots for flu, pneumococcal disease (which can cause pneumonia and meningitis), and Hepatitis B. Flu, pneumococcal infections and Hepatitis B can be life-threatening for older people, and we recommend that all people age 65 and older get flu and pneumococcal shots. Most people only need the pneumococcal vaccine once in their lifetime. And remember — Medicare beneficiaries may receive these shots with no co-pays. Beneficiaries also can get screened for cardiovascular disease and different kinds of cancer, including breast, prostate, cervical and vaginal, and colorectal cancer.
