Julian Water Woes in the Great Drought

By Bobbi Zane ~ the journal


ulian residents and businesses are required to conserve water in their daily use, according to executive orders issued in April by Governor Jerry Brown.The goal is to reduce water usage statewide by 25 percent, and it applies to everyone. At first, it appeared that the new regulations were intended mainly to conserve urban water use statewide. And it seemed that the rules were not

for Julian resdients — we are careful with water, we don’t have lawns, and most gardens are designed to conserve water. Watering-use conditions in the backcountry are quite different from those in urban areas, and the Julian area is not connected to the statewide water system. Julian water is pumped right from the ground by water providers or from individually owned wells. Early in June, the major Julian water


Homes • Land • Property Management • Vacation Rentals


suppliers received notification that they are included in the statewide conservation regulations issued by the State Water Resources Control Board. However, the smaller water suppliers, such as those in Julian with fewer than 3,000 connections, “Will be required to achieve a 25 percent conservation standard or restrict outdoor irrigation to no more than two days per week.” Baseline for determining compliance is the amount of water used from June to November 2013. Small water suppliers will be required to submit a report on Dec. 15, 2015, that provides their water production from June through November 2015 and June through November 2013, and the number of days per week that outdoor irrigation is allowed. Residents can take measures to help reduce water use, including reducing extensive watering of lawns and gardens and capturing shower and other available clean water for re-use in the garden. Prohibited activities include washing sidewalks and driveways, water runoff when irrigating with potable water, using hoses with no shutoff nozzles to wash cars and irrigating outdoors during and within 48 hours following measurable rain. Managers of the major water providers in Julian were asked what they would tell their ratepayers regarding water-saving practices. Following is the list, starting with the agency that has the most customers:

Majestic Pines Serves Whispering Pines, Kentwood I and Kentwood II — 700 customers in a service area of 1,049 acres.

Customers used 31.9 million gallons of water in 2014. Mandatory restrictions: Oddnumbered home addresses may water on Thursday and Sunday, and evennumbered home addresses on Wednesday and Saturday. Irrigation time is before 10 a.m. or after 6 p.m. Fines for noncompliance start at $100 and will be enforced.

Pine Hills Mutual Water Company Serves 238 customers, residents of Pine Hills development. Customers used 8.8 million gallons of water in 2014. No mandatory water restrictions.

Julian Community Service District Serves 68 commercial and 138 residential customers, including four schools, two churches, county facilities, and 271 acres in town site. Customers used 16.5 million gallons of water in 2014. Mandatory restrictions: Irrigation permitted on Wednesdays and Sundays between 6 a.m. and 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. Fines for noncompliance start at $100 and will be enforced.

Wynola Water District Serves 72 customers in a service area of 235 acres. Customers used 9.4 million gallons of water in 2014. No mandatory water restrictions. Customers are requested to reduce irrigation by adjusting automatic timers, watering fewer days or manually controlling irrigation. Bobbi Zane serves on the board of the Julian Community Service District. n

eel The Beat & Move Your Feet” was the name of Ramona/Julian Academy of Dance’s 28th dance recital held recently at the Poway Center for Performing Arts. The academy, now in its 29th year, is operated by Kristine Griffin and offers classes to both children and adults. More than 300 dancers — including the dads for the special “Daddy and Daughter Dance” routine — were featured in the morning and afternoon shows. Throughout the day, 100-plus dance numbers were performed. Each show was unique, with the morning show presenting the preschoolers, beginners, teachers and junior

Dancers were outfitted in coordinating costumes for their routines. Costumes varied from classical ballet tutus and sparkly fairies, to sailor outfits, mermaids, jungle theme and Arabian ballerinas. Dancers used trampolines and ribbons for a Cirque-style acrobatic number. “We are also celebrating an awesome competition season, and several of our teams left the day after the recital to compete at the Spotlight National Competition in Las Vegas,” said Griffin. Academy teams recently won awards for kindness, most entertaining, showmanship, sportsmanship and choreography at regional competitions. “The training received at RJAD is superb,” said Griffin. “Our dancers have been accepted to major ballet and dance companies in New York, Chicago, San Francisco, Connecticut and several other places. “Several dancers have entered the professional entertainment field in both the Hollywood and Los Angeles areas,” she said. “We are so blessed.” n JULY 16, 2015

Where the Heart Leads

Beloved Pastor Leaves Julian for the Missionary Life By Ann Reilly Cole ~ the journal


hen Bishop Brom, former Bishop of the Diocese of San Diego, asked Father Cecilio Moraga to

be the pastor at Saint Elizabeth of Hungary Catholic Church in Julian, he said yes right away. At the end of this month, after six years on the job, Father Cecilio — as those who know

him affectionately call him — is answering yes to a different calling. He will leave this rural mountain town and the people he has come to love in order to serve the poorest of the poor for five years in the even more remote mountain village of Sicuani in Peru. Moraga will join the Missionary Society of St. James the Apostle, an international organization of diocesan priests founded in 1958, to bring the sacraments and the good news of the Gospel to the people of Peru and Ecuador. There, with a profound respect for the local culture, values and traditions, the missionaries engage in works of evangelical charity, developing an authentic integration of the Gospel and the rich native heritage. At 65 years and eligible for retirement, he asked himself, “What more can I do to serve?” After learning about the Society, he submitted a request and went through a rigorous application process. His good health and vivacious spirit convinced them to set aside their age limitation and accept him to the physically

Is Your Kitchen ‘Long in the Tooth?’

You know it needs a makeover. But you haven’t pulled the trigger on a new kitchen yet. Why? Probably because remodeling a kitchen is scary!

You are waiting until you feel comfortable that you have the right team in place — until you get help in a new design and in setting and keeping a budget. In other words, you haven’t pulled the trigger because you haven’t found the right partner! Kitchen Barn is the Right Partner!

We keep our promises, and we respect your budget. Working with you is what we do . . . Most importantly, we have lots of local testimonials you can check out.

demanding program. Looking back at his time in Julian, Moraga admits to being afraid when he learned that with no paid staff, he would be responsible for managing the day-to-day operations of the local parish. He quickly learned, however, that the people of the parish, who welcomed him warmly, were the kind of people who volunteered when help was needed, with no thought of time or money, enabling him to put his heart and time into preparing a lively liturgy each week. “Life is difficult, and I know if people are inspired, it helps them,” he said. An official audit that is performed by the diocese whenever a pastor departs

shows that Moraga leaves the parish on solid financial footing. Giving credit to the many volunteers who worked tirelessly to keep expenses down, Moraga reports that during his tenure, the parish retired its debt to the diocese, established a building fund, made needed repairs to parish buildings and now affords a part-time, paid secretary. If he has a regret, it is that he has not yet seen the fulfillment of his wish to provide a new classroom building for the children of the parish. Nevertheless, he has initiated plans and provisions that may lead to its creation sometime in the future. Of his favorite moments at St. Elizabeth, he recalls welcoming lapsed Catholics back to the church. He also appreciated witnessing the spiritual life of parishioners who spent quiet time in prayer in the church outside of Mass. He says he would like to see more people avail themselves of the spiritual practices of the church, so they may grow even more in faith. Preparing to live among the poor, Moraga intends to bring only simple priestly clothes to Peru. Among the essentials he will bring will be the many wonderful memories of his time in Julian. “I will miss the place,” he said. “I will miss the people more.” n

Garden Tour Blooms and Grows


t least 50 people took advantage of the opportunity visit local gardens during the Julian Garden Tour last month. It was the third year of the fundraiser for the Julian Elementary Farm to School Program, which organizers said raised more than $500.

Each year, the planners attempt to find gardens that are different from one another so tour-goers see variety and an abundance of ideas. “The tour is a fabulous way to speak with master gardeners as well as local gardeners,” said Sunday Dutro, who

worked with Tricia Elisara on planning the tour. “Several tour-goers were preparing to start their first gardens and were looking for ideas and advice. One master gardener commented that these gardens are ‘perfect examples of what anyone can do.’” Six gardens were showcased this year. The Julian Elementary School garden features a gazebo, school-wide composting, rainwater harvesting, solar-powered water fountain, certified wildlife habitat, dry riverbed, fruit trees, vegetables, herbs, flowers and native plants. The garden boasts two beautiful gateways made by local artists Art Cole and James Hubbell, as well as a massive table and benches fashioned by Don Madison from cedar trees lost to wildfire. “In addition to growing food, this

garden grows citizens, character, gardening skills, beauty, academics, stories and community,” said Dutro. The Gallo Garden is a mountain arboretum with an Asian flair, less than an acre in size. The garden design evolved over time with no particular plan, starting with a dry riverbed to help control erosion. Plantings are a combination of what is known to work in Julian microclimates, as well as plants that are suited to the northeast or northwest. Also on display this year was a vegetable garden and tree house. Hummingbird Hacienda was designed by local artists and master gardeners Sally Snipes and the late Carol Naggy. The xeriscape garden contains native species that do not require watering and only a little pruning. As the native species flower, they encourage the presence of local pollinators and hummingbirds. A mission, adobe ruins, monks’ bread oven, rock walls and wine cellar were created by Vincent Guerrero. The Miller Garden is a raised-bed

garden established in 2007, that grows more than enough vegetables for an entire family. With five beds and multiple containers, the 20-foot by 44-foot fenced area is a tribute to what any family can accomplish in their space. The Sauter Garden started with roses and natives planted by Ed Epps. The Sauters then expanded the garden to include deer fencing and raised-bed vegetable gardens. A living arbor of Chinese maples marks the entrance to the garden.

Down The Road Farm is a chemical-free, sustainable micro-farm. The small, yearround Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program provides bags of seasonal produce to local residents each week. This program encourages the farm to grow as many crops as possible on the small parcel of land — the opposite of what usually takes place in today’s industrial system. The farm keeps free-range chickens, several types of ducks, rabbits and pastured quail. n Down The Road Farm The Sauter Garden 5SDG13108__SUMMER PREP_RAMONAJOURNAL__RUN:07_02_15__7.94x10

minutes until the sugar dissolves. Take it off the heat and let it sit until you’re ready for it. When the pork is done, take it out of the oven and put it on a large platter. Allow the meat to rest for about 10 minutes. While it’s resting, deglaze the pan over medium heat with 3/4 cup water, scraping with a wooden spoon to pick up all of the browned bits. Reduce by about half. Pour that into the saucepan with the sauce and cook 5 minutes. While the pork is still warm, you want to “pull” the meat.Put the shredded pork in a bowl and pour half of the sauce over. Stir it all up well so that the pork is coated with the sauce. To serve, spoon the pulled pork mixture onto the bottom half of each hamburger bun, and top with some slaw. Serve with pickle spears and the remaining sauce on the side.

Warner Resort Has the Casper Touch

t can be said that this soonto-be-reopened golf course will have the Casper touch with a Bing Crosby flair. Byron Casper, son of legendary golfer Billy Casper, has been appointed corporate golf direc-

tor of Pacific Hospitality Group, which includes the newly renovated Warner Springs Ranch Resort Golf Club, due to open this summer, and the Salt Creek Golf Club in Chula Vista. “Our goal is to make Warner

Byron Casper has been named the head golf professional for Warner Springs Ranch Resort Golf Club. Photos Courtesy of Byron Casper

Springs Ranch the Greenbrier of the west,” said Casper. “More importantly, we strive to bring back the history and the status it had years ago as a wonderful golf and family destination. “I think it is going to be challenging with quite a few bunkers,” he said. “The fairways have been changed around. It’ll be a fun test of your game. We’ve put our own little touch on it. It will surprise a lot of people.” Remodeling the clubhouse and restaurant, and adding new Billy Casper, left, and son Byron. amenities, such as a bar, twoway fireplace and ample outdoor seating, are expressions of change. The old Bing Crosby cottage is to be converted into a hospitality suite to pay homage to the entertainer and San Diego golfing legends such as the late Billy Casper. Byron served as his father’s caddy when he was a Byron Casper’s teenager.

career spans nearly two decades working with top golf courses and companies across the globe, including Scotland, where he relocated in the mid-1990s While in Scotland, he played professionally, worked for the International PGA and became a teaching professional and club fitter for Heritage Golf of St. Andrews and later, the St. Andrews Golf Company. In 2007, he returned to the U.S. and added to his teaching credentials with GolfTEC before starting his own golf academy at Thanksgiving Point Golf Club in 2011. He partnered with his father to create the Billy Casper Golf Academy. At 47, Byron has given more than 5,000 lessons in three countries, is a TaylorMade staff player and has written and published two books on golf. The Warner golf club is a 6,850-yard, 18-hole, par-72 championship course surrounded by 60-year-old oak trees and natural vegetation, offering sweeping views of area mountain ranges. “We’ll have many programs to give people a golfing experience,” Casper continued. “When people leave the course, they will feel like they have been members. Can’t wait to get back again.” He said he’d be head teaching pro here and at Salt Creek. For now, the bulk of his time will be spent in Warner Springs. Fred Grand, $ president of Warner Springs Ranch Resort LLC,

added, “Byron Casper’s involvement with the Warner Springs Ranch Golf Club is truly significant. It links a legendary golf course with a World Golf Hall of Fame golfer and San Diego native Billy Casper and keeps his legacy alive through his son Byron.” Byron said it was a wonderful experience caddying for

his famous father in the U.S. Open and Masters as a teenager. Later, he caddied for three years when his father played on the seniors tour. He came from a large family, but only he and his older brother, Bob, sought careers in golf. His brother participated in the PGA tour, but Byron chose teaching. n

AVL Grant to Benefit Backcountry Fire Stations

Photo Courtesy of San Diego Regional Fire Foundation


he San Diego County Board of Supervisors accepted a donation of $276,000 last month from the San Diego Regional Fire Foundation for the purchase of 80 automatic vehicle locators (AVL) for rural San Diego fire departments. The AVL-enabled fire vehicles will permit dispatchers to see where every unit is located and send the closest one to an emergency. This can significantly reduce response times, potentially saving lives in a medical emergency or keeping a small fire from becoming a major one. AVL also enables fire commanders to better manage a fire by seeing where all units are located and moving them to help save homes and protect firefighters as winds shift.

AVL equipment will be provided to 23 fire stations, including Julian, Shelter Valley, Warner Springs, Cuyamaca, Mount Laguna, Ranchita, Sunshine Summit and Palomar Mountain. It will take time to complete the installations, but work is planned through the summer and fall. “The Fire Foundation is very pleased to partner with the County of San Diego, the San Diego County Fire Authority, Cal Fire and SDG&E to provide this crucial equipment that will reduce response times to fires, medical and rescue calls, and other emergencies,” said Fire Foundation Executive Director Joan Jones, who noted that SDG&E has provided grants totaling $376,000 to support the AVL program. n
