Buffalo Buck is Loaded with Luck

By Tracy Rolling ~ the journal


he world just celebrated Mother’s Day. But for one local family, Mother’s Day has taken on a whole new meaning. That’s because they’ve become a surrogate mother for an orphaned buffalo named Buck. “Buck was a twin,” explains Ken and Denice Childs, who own and operate Star B Ranch nestled in the hills of Santa Ysabel.

David Schlottman On Course for Success

By Ann Reilly Cole ~ the journal


s principal/superintendent of Julian Union High School for nearly two years, David Schlottman has established much-needed stability, has considerable accomplishments under his belt, and is committed to building on success to continue improving educational opportunities for students. When Schlottman took the helm, he inherited some big problems, one of which was the math program that had only 13.9 percent of students testing at proficient levels at the end of the 2011-12 school year. Schlottman added tutors to work directly with students during math class, as well as in all subjects, two days a week after school. His goal was to give kids exactly what they needed to succeed. After one year, STAR test results showed

that the students’ proficiency in math increased to 37 percent, a number Schlottman says still needs work but is moving in the right direction. Another issue facing the school district is the slow, complicated process of rebuilding the condemned science building. After many fits and starts, as of October 2012, the Division of State Architects conditionally approved plans for the new building. Last November, the school board applied for supplemental funding from the state for the project. According to Schlottman, the board did a fantastic job in getting JUHSD’s project on the agenda of the State Allocation Board in Sacramento in time for the May 22 meeting. If approved, the project will go to the top of the “unfunded list,” which makes it eligible for unused funds that have been returned to the state budget from other

districts’ projects that come in under budget. Depending on if the project makes the list, and how close to the top of the list it is placed, the district may request funds from the semiannual funding cycle. Conceivably, the district could receive funds as early as July of 2013, or be pushed back to January of 2014, or later. In addition to this potential funding source, there is the $2.1 million bond approved by voters. Schlottman and the board are now studying the rules and regulations regarding selling bonds to determine the most effective way to sell the bond in the current marketplace in order to net the highest proceeds to the district. During the 2011-12 school year, the Western Association of Schools and Colleges reviewed and reaccredited

Their son-in-law, Eric March, along with the neighbor’s wife, set out to find the lone buffalo. As soon as they located his cries of distress, they radioed Denice, who rallied help from Ryan Burnett and Miguel Ramirez.

“We knew he only had a 50/50 chance of survival,” says Denice. The couple was quick to research their journals where they had documented past cases of buffalos in need of human intervention. Additionally, they sought advice from local veterinarian Christopher George, D.V.M. “Dr. George has been wonderful,” says Denice, telling how the family acquired goat’s milk and began aroundthe-clock feedings.

of the herd is used for breeding purposes. Many are sold to ranches throughout the western United States, and some become ribbon winners and sold at auction. A few are used for buffalo meat, which is packaged, labeled and available for sale at the ranch by appointment. Since it is the middle of calving season, they anticipate that as many as 20 new buffalo will soon join the existing herd, and have incorporated Buck’s rigorous feeding schedule into their daily routine. They praise their ranch help, along with their daughter, Amie March, her husband,

ball to Buck and having him kick it back. He also enjoys the grunts and weird noises the wild animal makes. Ken says, “Even though Buck is adapting to our world, he requires constant supervision. Safety is our number-one priority. Buck might act like the family dog at times, but he’s a wild animal and can be very dangerous.” Denice agrees, telling how when Buck gets a little frisky or eager to play, you have to steer clear of his growing horns, lanky legs and bulky body.

Currently, Buck weighs 120 pounds. His milk intake has increased while the number of daily bottles has been reduced, and he has begun grazing. He is projected to weigh 800 pounds by his six-month birthday, and could reach upwards of 2,000 pounds when fully grown. “It’s never our intention to take a buffalo away from its mother,” Denice clarifies, recognizing most buffalo have a healthy fear of man. Ironically, Buck’s mother, Harley, was also bottled-

raised, and though she is friendly, she is a thriving buffalo with offspring of her own. Buck’s twin brother was not named, as most buffalo on the ranch remain nameless unless a situation requires them to be singled out and identified. Buck has not yet been reintroduced to his mother or brother. And while the family waits to decide whether Buck will stay on the ranch and have a herd of his own or be sold to a good home, they all agree — Buck is one lucky little buffalo. n

Film Festival Focuses on Environment


he Wild and Scenic Film Festival returns to Julian May 17 to 19. Last year, 24 films were featured and there was a special appearance by one guest filmmaker. This year, there will be 44 independent films and eight special guest speakers and filmmakers. The festival will be held in Julian Union High School this year, tripling last year’s capacity when it was held in Julian Town Hall. Organizers from the Volcan Mountain Foundation consider Julian to be an ideal film festival destination, especially for films of this genre. The committee’s vision is to make this a major event, not only for the population in and around Julian and Ramona, but all of Southern California. Their goal is to “promote awareness about protecting treasured outdoor spaces and wildlife, share in the beauty of our planet, revel in

exciting adventure sports, and introduce you to inspirational people of all ages (starting at age 11), who are making a difference to make sure these natural resources are here for future generations.” The festival kicks off Friday night at 5 p.m. with a Meet the Filmmakers opening night reception at Blue Door Winery, 2608 B St., followed by screenings of “One Beach” and “A Fierce Green Fire,” shown at the high school, 1656 Highway 78. There will be a dessert reception afterward. For the first time, there will be a kids program Saturday morning from 9 to 10:15 a.m., featuring films highlighting extraordinary and inspiring environmental contributions by young people. From 10:30 a.m. to noon, naturalist and educator Greg Hill will host a children’s nature workshop at the Julian Elementary Garden next to the high school, where kids can make

a craft and enjoy nature while their parents watch films next door. Films will be shown until 6:30 p.m. Saturday, and there will be a film festival party from 7:30 to 10 p.m. at Wynola Farms Marketplace. The festival continues Sunday from 9 a.m. to 6:15 p.m. Guided hikes on Volcan Mountain will be offered Saturday and Sunday mornings beginning at 8:30 a.m., with free transportation from Town Hall at 8:15. Local filmmaker workshops will be held with Chris Elisara Saturday during lunch and with Jim Karnik from 4 to 5:30 p.m. A filmmaker panel will be held from 6 to 6:30 p.m. Visit www.JulianFilm for ticket information, a description of films, and a schedule of films and events. Seats are limited. n

“This year we’re going to change the music up a little bit,” says Julian Post Communications Officer Bill Fink. “Instead of two headliners, we’re going to have a number of different bands headlining the event. Our roots are country music, but we’ll have rock music as well.” The Fabulous Nomads out of Newport Beach are among the bands set to entertain. Organizers agree: “This is the biggest party in Julian, where friends, neighbors and our guests from down the hill meet.” Barbecued tri-tip and chicken dinners, side dishes, desserts, soft drinks, beer and wine will be offered for sale. Children will enjoy plenty of activities to keep them busy all afternoon until dark. Grownups will enjoy the huge dance floor, twinkling lights and warming fires at night. “This is the largest Sons of the American Legion fundraiser of the year, allowing us to be the large charity benefactor that we are,” says Fink. Funds raised from “The Dance” help the group contribute thousands of dollars to charitable projects each year. Tickets are available in advance for $8 and at the door for $10. Kids under 10 enter for $5. The winery is located at 1150 Julian Orchards Dr. Call 760-430-5044 or visit n

Moderators Bailee Rembold, Sarah Linthicum and Bailey Davis-Scholl welcomed the audience and introduced expert presenters who spoke about ways in which the illegal growth and use of marijuana affects individuals, families and communities. Using instant-polling technology, Leo Castillo from the Counter Drug Task Force of the California National Guard surveyed the audience about marijuana use throughout the evening. He asked questions, such as how easy is it for high school students to get marijuana, how dangerous do they think it is, is it addictive and does it have long-term effects. Within minutes, Castillo

Charlotte Mitchell



harlotte Mitchell was born Aug. 21, 1951, in Newburgh, N.Y. Almost as soon as she could play, she began a very creative life. One might say art was her life. Although she studied at several colleges, she was primarily self-taught, and as she would say, she was “widely and wildly curious.” To Charlotte, glass was by far the most luscious material to work with; it had no close second for her, although she also worked in clay, wood, bronze and metal. The way glass caught the light, changed at all hours and weather, the way it glowed, shimmered — it was magical to her. Using the copper-foil technique, her style was fresh, free-form and organic. She tried not to push what she did, that is, not planning out the work too far in detail, although some elements like size and color had to be taken into account in the real world of commissioned pieces. The basic engineering or “bones” of a piece may have hung her up, yet she trusted her brain to work on it while she went “fishing” on another project. “It is often very startling how an idea will come into existence, fully formed at my fingers, having been gestating for a year,” she told others. The color schemes reflected her varying moods: vivid primary colors often predominated while at other times a calm, pastel effect was achieved. Yet even her “quiet” works have touches of dissonant color to keep them from falling asleep. The figurative sculpture incorporated in her work was also distinctive and had a fluid quality. When asked why she did her art, Charlotte would reply, “I would burst if I did not create art. It is often so compelling an obsession that I cannot sleep but must be up and doing. The joy I feel for life is healing for me as well as those who love my work; it is especially wonderful to be able to be of use in healing wounds of the spirit. I believe that is what good art can do. I believe my work makes a difference to the people who see it.” There were two inspirations that loomed large in Charlotte’s work: the natural world and poetry. Charlotte wrote in her journal, “The patterns of nature recur endlessly whether it is the sensuous twist of a river or my hair in a bathtub. . . I always get knocked out by line and shape everywhere I look. The beauty of birds especially define a lot of my glass work with the uplifting feeling I get when I

see them as flying spirits of unalloyed freedom. A coyote fighting with a bald eagle over a squirrel (the little guy got away) a persistent redtailed hawk swooping down upon a pair of golden eagles flying low and slow over my valley, three hummingbirds trying to sip out of the same feeder hole, a riot of deep red and purple amid overwhelming thunder and violent, zigzagged lightening in the Garden of the Gods, these are examples of Nature blessing me after which I say, ‘Lord, take me now!’ But, happily, I am not swept up in a cloud to heaven but have a great need to express this awe through my art for others to feel a bit of wonder too!” The second inspiration, poetry, was equally strong in her work. “It seems the ballast that keeps me steady in rough seas, the words of poets that I live and will die by,” she wrote. “I am always on the lookout for poetry. I use it as an invisible canvas to fill in as I may; I often scribe it directly onto my work. While I do not write poetry myself, I am amazed at and endlessly thankful to those few who have given their all to do so.” Shakespeare, Emily Dickinson, Walt Whitman, Robert Frost, William Blake, Mary Oliver, Christina Rossetti, John Keats, Rumi, Rainer Maria Rilke and Stanley Kunitz were some of her favorites, as well as the work of ancient Greek, Japanese and Chinese wordsmiths. When asked what makes her work unique, Charlotte once replied, “I am most noted for my abstract style in glass sculptures that seem to move. The wave-like pieces of slumped glass add to this effect. Those works, entitled ‘Essence’ always have Swarovski crystals in them; I like the rainbows they cast when least expected. These pieces usually have what I call ‘coilies,’ whorls of copper wire resembling the tendrils of grapevines, a bit of whimsy. My wirework is distinctive. It is like a line drawing in the air, which adds further interest and evokes the wiggles all around me in nature. “I recycle many different materials and use them in my art; people bring me broken heirlooms, like cutglass bowls, vases, ceramics, jewelry, and often my friends bring me oddments thrown away by glassblowers: frilly bits, vases that did not work out and jewel-like oddments I can make beautiful again instead of having them go to the landfill.” This practice of waste-not led her into her work with the burned remnants from the 2003 Cedar fire. During and

after the fire, she seemed to be a person with the right mix of characteristics — hopefulness, objectivity, creativity, heart and strong limbs — to help victims begin to heal through art. She was able to help sift through the ashes to create what she called “sculptures for memory using their fire remnants.” While she gave these away to the fire victims, many were also auctioned off to raise money for the relief effort. If anyone lost her work in the fire, she tried to make another piece even better for them without charge. Another special part of her art was the incorporation of figurative work in glass and ceramic. Those personified the sculptures in a wonderful way with their swaying forms and flowing hair, suggesting dancing spirits moving in water or air. The use of poetry within her work and as inspiration was different, too, and speaks to her love of words as inseparable from her joy of life. Last but not least, she signed almost every piece with both her name and her husband’s, Brent Mitchell. She always said, “We are a team. He does all the unsung, unlovely parts of our business, from paperwork to patinas. One of the greatest gifts he always gives me is the freedom to create, to dream and to give expression to my deepest longings.” Charlotte passed away at home on April 24, 2013, at the age of 61. Brent, her husband of 43 years, will continue her legacy and work at The Charlotte Mitchell Gallery in Wynola. As Charlotte was dying, she was assured that her work would continue to live on and bring joy, just as she did in her all-too-short but meaningful life. She will be forever missed, and those who have a piece of her work with crystals in them will remember her each morning as the sun shoots rainbows across the rooms of their homes. A celebration of life will be held Sunday, May 26, 2013, at 2 p.m. at the Julian Library. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in her name to the Friends of the Julian Library, P.O. Box 815 Julian, CA 92036. The library and the wisdom she found in it were a treasure to her. n

It took a full year to prepare for the three-day visit by WASC representatives, who thoroughly inspected the school’s policies, procedures and curriculum, and interviewed students, staff and school board members. All of the staff, headed up by Cheryl Bakken, participated in writing a portion of the report, which was submitted to WASC as part of the process. “For my first year, I was

Stepping Out In Style By Bobbi Zane ~ the journal

The Julian Fourth of July Parade is all about style as it celebrates the 20th rendition of the annual holiday event. Look for plenty of red, white and blue along the parade route, on the grandstand and adorning floats, cars, bands, horses and walking groups. Vintage Warbirds will scream across the sky, dispensing a special sparkle highlighting their contrails. Expect more bands, headed up by the Grand Pacific Band, with hometown spirit displayed in all entries and a nod to Julian’s history by Grand Marshal Richard Bailey, a descendant of one of the town’s first families, riding in a Clydesdale-drawn hitch. The parade is an all-day event, beginning when locals and visitors set their chairs along Main Street early in the morning. “Got to get the best view,” they explain as they greet old friends and neighbors. Plan to arrive by 10 a.m., when pre-parade The Julian American Legion will present a breakfast fundraiser for the Fourth of July Parade on Sunday, June 2. An annual event on behalf of the parade, these events are fun and productive. This is an all-you-can-eat buffet breakfast, served from 7 to

activities start with the initial flyover by the vintage World War II aircraft. The parade steps off officially at noon, and it takes about an hour for the 70 entries to get from Julian Union High School to the other end of town. Afterward, there is time to shop, as most of the stores will be open and some offer holiday specials. Many of the parade makers will be available to meet and greet at the annual barbecue put on by the American Legion after the parade. Presenting the Julian Fourth of July Parade is a community effort that involves about 30 volunteer residents, who work for nearly a year on the project. Funds to support the parade come from the community through donations and participation in fundraising events throughout the year. Visit, “Julian Parade” on Facebook, or contact the Chamber of Commerce at 760-765-1857. n

Out of the Box Players will present “The Haunting of Hill House,” an enhanced reader’s theater production with minimal costuming and sets. The cast is made up of Ramona, Julian and Poway residents, Sharon Crosswhite, Christine Vail, Kymm Hansen, Chuck Preble, Clayton Gage, Jennie Bowman and Simon Hansen. “Reader’s theater is exciting in that you get to put up interesting plays without all the major rehearsal time,” says director Juliana Stewart. “It takes a lot less rehearsal than a typical show. The audience gets so involved that you forget scripts are even there.” The play, adapted for the stage from a novel by Shirley Jackson, uses suspense and terror rather than horror to bring about emotion in the audience. The show will be staged May 18 at 7:30 p.m. at 321 12th St., Ramona. Tickets are $5, available by calling 760-789-0856. The next show, “Tea with Mrs. Roosevelt,” with Annette Hubbell and Elaine Litton, is set for June 1. Visit www. outoftheboxplayers.blogspot. com. n

Haunting of Hill House’ Show Set

The new Jeremy’s of Julian food truck is owned by chef Jeremy Manley.



ooking for a way to expand his business, chef Jeremy Manley of Jeremy’s on the Hill tapped into a trend that has swept the nation — food truck dining. He recently purchased and refurbished this kitchen on wheels so he can bring his fresh, locally grown cuisine to festivals and events around town and to offer an alternative menu to patrons dining on his outdoor patio. Food trucks, which historically brought lunch to workers in construction or rural areas that were far from restaurants, have now become part of a hip epicurean dining experience for foodies looking for variety and an upscale “street festival” atmosphere. As gourmet chefs bought used trucks, painted them with artsy, eye-catching designs and offered creative niche menus at affordable prices, people flocked to urban streets and parking lots to sample the latest trends in mobile dining. Customers track locations of their favorite trucks or “food truck festivals,” using social media and smart phones to get their fix. Food truck dining has become so popular that restaurant guides like Zagat review and rate them for the discerning diner. For Manley, adding a food truck to his business model means that he can offer more choices to more customers. With so many festivals, public gatherings and celebrations that are part of the Julian community calendar — from

Apple Days and Grape Stomp to movie nights, parades and dances — there are a lot of opportunities to bring fine food directly to about 200 people per day. The truck will also enable him to cater private parties and special events to satisfy customers’ needs at remote locations. At the restaurant, Manley

plans to implement Food Truck Mondays, serving a different menu than the restaurant, and at a lower cost. Patrons will be able to order burgers, sandwiches and desserts to eat on the outdoor patio while enjoying the music of Coco Brown. The menu of the day will rotate depending on the season and occasion so customers can return often to enjoy new tastes and treats. Jeremy’s On the Hill is located at 4354 Highway 78.
