‘Book Burst’ Gives New Life to Old Pages

Like seashells washed ashore, no two designs are alike. By Ann Reilly Cole ~ the journal


ot every book makes the cut for shelf space at the library, but Julian Branch Library staff member Tonya Allen discovered that cutting up some old library discards elevated them to display at the entrance to the library collection. While searching online

for library books, Allen came across a title that offered creative solutions for what to do with discards and donated books that can’t be accommodated in the collection or the bookstore. The how-to book offered many project ideas, both functional and decorative. It was the “book burst” idea — slicing a book into four pieces, then folding and gluing

A highlight is the two-day Apple Days Festival, Oct. 5 and 6, at Menghini Winery, located at 1150 Julian Orchards Dr., at the corner of Farmer Road and Wynola Road, approximately three miles north of Main Street. Turner describes the familyfriendly event as having a variety of food, vendor booths, games and activities, as well as a beer and wine garden, music and an opportunity for the crowd to taste apples presented by the Julian Apple Growers Association. “We hope to open the orchard gates this year so that people attending the festival will have a chance to

When a batch of apples from Julian won the prestigious Wilder Medal in 1907, it was as if the charming country town was dubbed an apple capitol. Ranchers were quickly recognized for their hard work, and the supportive community — along with the help of town leaders — organized a variety of celebrations. Today, that tradition continues and is referred to as Julian Apple Days. Beginning in the middle of September, the town hosts a number of events, including a shopping extravaganza where visitors at participating stores can hunt for golden apples and have the opportunity to win a prize.

hen ovens across the county begin buzzing, and the smell of freshly baked pies wafts through the air, it can only mean one thing — Julian’s apple pie baking contest. Entry is open to the public, and contestants come from near and far in hopes of claiming the title and walking away with a wad of cash. Sponsored by the Julian Chamber of Commerce and hosted by the Julian Woman’s Club, the pie baking contest offers a total of $600 in prize money. Event organizer Diana Garrett says, “It’s the perfect way to celebrate the apple harvest and contribute to Julian’s nostalgic, small-town atmosphere.” While the old-fashioned

baking contest offers modernday bakers an opportunity to convert flour into dough, there are a few rules participants should know.

Entry is free, but all pies must be accompanied by an official entry form, available at the Chamber office or online at Pies must be baked from scratch, and in addition to apples, which are required, they may include other fruits, such as berries or peaches.

Pies need to be delivered in a disposable pan or container to the Woman’s Club at 2607 C St. on Friday, Oct. 4, between 10:30 a.m. and noon. At 1 p.m., the entries will be judged by area experts based on taste, originality, presentation and creativity. Winners of first, second, and third place will be notified by phone and announced at the annual Apple Days Festival, held at Menghini Winery Oct. 5 and 6. Pieces of the prized pies and other baked goods will be sold during the two-day festival, with proceeds benefiting the Woman’s Club. Garrett says they’ve received as many as 25 entries in past years and hopes this year’s entries will be just as fruitful. n

Open House and Poker Run to Support Fire Protection District

Two fundraising events on Sept. 28 will be held to show support and raise funds for the Julian Cuyamaca Fire Protection District. Representatives from the fire district and Julian CERT (Community Emergency Response Team) will be at a free open house at Frank Lane Park from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. There will be food, tours of the fire station, raffles and prizes, music in the park, live demonstrations, children’s games and vendors to help the public prepare for emergency or disaster. “Our local resources and strong relationships with Cal Fire, SDG&E, American Red Cross, CERT, and San Diego County are prepared for any future emergencies,” said Johnny Hake, on behalf of the fire protection district. “We are in need of financial help to remain a viable entity

serving our community,” he added. “Our community needs your support as we strive to protect the lives and property of our out-of-town visitors and local residents. Tough economic times have hit us all and we are doing our best to support this cause with declining resources from governmental agencies.” The second event will commemorate the 10th anniversary of the 2003 Cedar fire.

Melodrama ~ Another Round of Hisses and Cheers


irector Garnette Welch has conducted two auditions to determine what performers will be primed for several performances in October for the 57th annual ritual of hisses, boos, tears and cheers. Not a simple task. They’ll complete a month’s worth of rehearsals for the newest Melodrama at Town Hall, titled “Apple or Orchard.” “It’s been a little more difficult placing five characters for this production,” Welch said. “This play was locally written by Ragnar Halverson. But that’s his pen name. He knows the place real well, having lived in Julian almost all his life. “The play has characters which have the usual play on words and is full of humor — names such as Manzanita Berry and Bailey Bird,” Welch said. “The setting varies from an apple orchard to the interior of a mountain cabin.” She added that one goal for the production is to keep the length shorter to allow audi-

But keep it clean — it’s a family show!” Participation in the allvolunteer amateur production requires a huge commitment, which has been shared for more than half a century by almost every family in Julian. n

Wolf Delisting Criticized

By Johnny McDonald ~ the journal

In a recent email, Erin Hunt, general manager of the California Wolf Center, stressed her concern about the U.S. Fish and Wildlife exclusion of scientific review participation of a plan to delist wolves. “We interviewed one of the excluded wolf experts, Dr. John Vucetich, and created a slideshow with audio,” she writes. “This is important because the service’s proposal to delist wolves has been criticized by conservationists, scientists and the public as being premature.” She points out that 16 scientists, whose

work was cited extensively in the proposal, signed a letter critiquing the proposal’s arguments for delisting. n

100 Years of Stories

Library Celebrates a Legacy of Literacy

By Ann Reilly Cole ~ the journal


an Diego County Library Director José Aponte was on hand at the Julian Branch Library Customer Appreciation Open House Sept. 14 to celebrate the branch’s long history of serving the public’s literary needs. Library patrons enjoyed the fanfare and festivities, including prizes for dressing up in their favorite period costumes of the last 100 years. There was a puppet show and face painting for the kids, a presentation on the library’s history by branch manager Colleen Baker, and a display of the most popular books from each decade that the library has been in business. Also on display was an exhibition of larger-than-life portraits of legendary San Diegans by Mona Mills. One of the initial 11 branches of the San Diego County Library system, the Julian Branch Library was founded

Sept. 14, 1913, the same year that folks could read about the trials and tribulations of the ever-optimistic adolescent Pollyanna or D. H. Lawrence’s controversial masterwork, “Sons and Lovers.” It was a great day to celebrate this outstanding organization, which had its start in humble beginnings. The Julian Branch Library started out at as a small depository, likely run by volunteers, at the Cuyamaca High School on Porter Lane, near where the gas station is today. It eventually outgrew its space and moved over the years, 10 times in all. One of the library’s eight residences was the local telephone company, where the branch manager doubled as a switchboard operator when she wasn’t handling the few boxes of books in her charge. After several years at the Witch Creek Schoolhouse on Fourth Street, where the Julian Historical Society resides

today, the library finally arrived at its current home on Highway 78 in 2004, to a building designed and built especially for the library. Just nine years later, it’s already feeling growing pains, and Baker is dreaming of ways to expand to better serve the community. There have been slightly more than a dozen managers in charge of the library during its history. In her research, Baker learned that Jeri Botts, a high school student who held the position from 1935 through 1938, earned just $3.33 a month for her labors. When she decided to marry, she asked her mother, Myrtle Botts, who had been her assistant, to take over the job on a temporary basis. The elder Botts held the “temp” job for 30 years, retiring in 1968.

Coming later in the month will be a display of the nine winning entries from the countywide “100 Years of Stories” drawing contest, two of which were created by Julian Library patrons. Diane Linthicum of Mesa Grande, took first place in the adult division for her drawing of two centenarians holding library cards, while her daughter, Kayla Linthicum, earned third place in the kids division, depicting how everyone from the tiniest baby and the family pet to senior citizens appreciate the library. “The Customer Appreciation Day enabled us to look from where we came and see how the community bands together to accomplish goals,” said Baker. “I see this library facility serving the community way into the future.” n

Julian Grad Joins Blue Angels

By Annette Williams ~ the journal


ulian Union High School graduate Navy Lt. j.g. Amber Lynn Daniel was selected to be the public affairs officer for the U.S. Navy Flight Demonstration Squadron, the Blue Angels. Daniel is currently assigned to the Navy Office of Diversity and Inclusion, Washington, D.C., and will soon report to the Blue Angels’ home base at Naval Air Station Pensacola in Florida. Her position will allow her to travel every week and speak to the media on behalf of the U.S. Navy. She is married to Michael Daniel, who is also in the Navy serving as a Master-atArms and is soon to become a Chief Petty Officer. “My husband was my inspiration who pushed me to apply for the job with the

Blue Angels,” she says. “So I certainly wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for him!” After attending private school through sixth grade, she and her best friend made the decision to transfer to the junior high school in Julian. Then at Julian Union High School, she was one of only 45

graduates in the class of 1999. Daniel says her success with the Navy and being selected for the Blue Angels can be attributed to her experiences and the values she learned attending Julian schools and living in Ramona. “There were lots of opportunities being in such a small school,” she says, noting that she was able to excel in sports, receive personal attention in the classroom, and build friendships that stand the test of time. “Growing up in a small town and going to a small school, I am able to maintain those relationships today.” She says she is pleased to represent the men and women serving in the military as well as her hometown. Daniel is the daughter of John and Lorrie Scott of Ramona. n

Palomar Mountain State Park’s Doane Valley Campground has once again been named by Sunset Magazine as one of the 42 best campgrounds in California, and is the only campground in San Diego County to make the list. “I consider this to be quite an honor,” says Rick Barclay, chairman of Friends of Palomar Mountain State Park. “It’s a beautiful campground with lots of atmosphere. Plus, there are plenty of clean bathrooms with hot showers. All this makes for a really good camping experience, especially for newbies and people with kids.” The campgrounds have undergone something of a facelift recently, made possible through donations, a grant from the California State Parks Foundation, and volunteer labor from employees of Harrah’s-Rincon Casino & Resort. The Doane Valley Campground, also known as the family campground, has 31 sites and is within walking distance from Doane Pond, which offers trout fishing. Deer and turkeys can frequently be seen on the hiking trails. “I’m especially proud, because just two years ago, the campgrounds had been closed in anticipation of the entire park being shuttered due to budget cutbacks,” says Barclay. “But a citizen cavalry pulled together and rescued the park from closure.” The park is open 365 days a year, but Barclay says that can continue only with the support of donors.

Book Burst Gives New Life to Old Pages continued from page 1

immediately put a new twist on the process by curling the pages before she glued them to make a piece that is evocative of waves in the ocean. At a workshop at the library last week, library patrons had an opportunity to try their hands at transforming old books into their own creative designs. Like snowflakes or seashells, no two book bursts look alike, each reflecting the artistic sensibility of the maker or the particularities of the book. There is no limit to the ways in which the pages of a book can be manipulated or adorned to create a book burst. As a decorative art form, they can enliven a wall, become a coffee table conversation piece, or gently sway in the breeze when hung from the ceiling like a mobile. Using books as raw material to create works of art is not a new idea. Artists have been altering books into mixed media sculptures for decades. Any book can be turned into an objet d’art

using this method, although paperbacks with 300 pages or more are a bit easier to manage. Allen even created one of her pieces using an old phone book. In the 1950s, abstract expressionist Franz Klein painted his signature bold calligraphic brush strokes on the yellow pages when he was too poor to buy paper.

Those pieces can now be seen in museums and art auction houses around the world. Allen, who is interested in many forms of artistic expression, says she inherited her creative energies from her mom and dedicates this work to her memory and to those who have helped her along the way. n

was carefully removed and will be replaced in the entrance of the new structure similarly to how it stood before the demolition. Likewise in the little theater, the seats were removed and the floors were covered with a protective material. Members of the Julian Historical Society took possession of the collection of paintings from inside the theater for safekeeping during the project. While this project has been nine years in the making, the lack of science labs hasn’t stopped JUHS students from achieving success in scientific studies. Under the leadership of teacher Mark Aumann, last year 55 out of 56 students tested at a proficient or

advanced level in science. Nevertheless, Principal/Superintendent David Schlottman believes the new building will be a morale booster for students and staff at the school. “Getting this done says that we stick to it and put kids first, and that Julian is a good place to learn,” says Schlottman. “Julian is on track.” As for the students and staff who now have to live with the ongoing construction issues during the school year, no one is complaining. It’s a small price to pay to look forward to a chance at long last to study in rooms designed and built for state-of-the-art science education. n
