After the Auction

Ramona Junior Fair Participants Make Plans By Tiffany Pressler ~ the journal

A

fter months of hard work and dedication, Ramona Junior Fair participants sent their animals to the auction. Each 4-H and FFA member has his or her own plans on how to use the money they earned. Garrett Barton from Poway FFA won the Grand Champion Beef, with his steer coming in at 1,341 pounds. He says the money he gets from selling his beef at the auction will go straight into an account for his steers and pigs for next year’s fair. The 17-year-old winner says he has one more year left of raising animals for the fair. After he finishes FFA, he will take all of the money and put it toward college. He plans to attend Texas A & M University or Kansas State University, majoring in

animal science and agriculture engineering. Barton says he couldn’t have done it without the help of Curtis and Mary Martineau and Dale Fullerton. Curtis Martineau is a Julian Junior High School teacher and his wife, Mary, is the Poway FFA advisor. Fullerton is the Julian FFA advisor. “They all helped me so much,” says Barton, who wrote about 30 letters asking people to purchase his steer at the Ramona Junior Fair auction. From start to finish, he has put $3,500 into the steer. In addition, he raised two pigs: one for the San Diego County Fair and one for the Ramona Junior Fair. The pig he had at the local fair won a blue ribbon and placed second in class for market.

“He was in the first-place pen of three,” he says. Nacara Jo Akins from Poway FFA won the Reserve Grand Champion swine, which came in at 271 pounds. This same swine won Lightweight Reserve Champion at the San Diego County Fair in June, weighing 222 pounds at the time. Akins auctioned other swine at the County Fair. This is Akins’ first year showing at the Ramona Junior Fair. She knew that if she brought the swine to this fair, she would advance more and make more money. In addition, she won first place in the bredand-fed category. The pig’s name is Trouble, and Akins purchased him from Mission Swines. See Ramona Junior fair continued on page 6

When gas prices started to soar a little more than a year ago, Mary Ann Houston decided it was time to build a bridge in Ramona — a bridge club, that is. “I had been going down the hill, taking lessons and playing competitively for quite some time,” she said, explaining how the price of gas and her game fee, on top of her coach’s game fee and lessons, were becoming quite costly. That’s when she took it upon herself to start a Ramona-based American Contract Bridge League-sanctioned bridge club. She describes contract bridge as a game with great disciplines that include mathematics and memorization.

Houston admits that when it came to building a bridge club, she was pretty naive about the whole thing. Her initial thought was to tell all her friends and family, and they would do the same, and a big group of people would show up. “But it didn’t work that way,” she confessed. So she scraped together 12 players, the required number of people to sit at three tables. With four players and two teams per table, an imaginary compass is used to identify each player’s position, and like clockwork the games began. The club had its first sanctioned game on Aug. 1, 2012, in Ramona Town Hall, where she and her husband, Doug, secured a room, in part because

But in order for her to open her own club, she would have to earn it by winning a certain number of prestigious master points with every card game she played. “You have to earn so many gold, silver, red and black points by participating in various tournaments,” she said. The current requirement is 500 points, but when she was sanctioned it was 300.

of their community involvement. “It felt like the hottest day in the world, and Town Hall didn’t have air conditioning at the time. But the game went on, and we had a lot of fun.” Today, the club is bridging out with a calling list of about 60 players. They play five tables regularly, and keep Town Hall See Building a Bridge continued on page 2

Commentary by Burke Kremensky

Fire Chief Promotes Defensible Space

On behalf of the Ramona Fire Department and Cal Fire, I wanted to thank all who participated in and attended the wildfire preparedness meeting

July 16 in San Diego Country Estates. There were many good questions and comments by all. I wanted to stress the most important topic: being prepared. No matter what type of emergency, the community needs to be prepared. For

instance, one of the most valuable things you can do before a wildfire is provide 100 feet of defensible space, protecting your home and providing safety. In a study conducted after Australia’s Black Saturday fires in 2009, that killed 173 people and injured 414, professors from the University of California at Berkeley and the Australian National University gathered 12,000 measurements around 500 houses that were affected by the fires. They found that clearing trees and shrubs within 40

meters (131 feet) was the most effective form of fuel reduction. Researchers went on to say, “No amount of fuel reduction will guarantee that a house is safe on extreme weather days like Black Saturday, so it is critical that other measures, such as early evacuation, safer places and architectural solutions, are considered by every resident in fire-prone areas in addition to, or instead of, fuel reduction.” They also said, “We predicted that modifying several fuels could theoretically reduce house loss by 76 to 97

percent, which would translate to considerably fewer wildfirerelated deaths.” This study, like many others, shows the importance of being prepared. Remember, you provide the defense, and we will provide the offense!

Get Ready to go Back to School By Brian Duewel, Health and Fitness Expert

The first day of school is just around the corner. It always seems to come before anyone has a chance to prepare, so now is the time to start getting ready. Aside from supplies and new clothes, reamember that students need to return to school well rested and in top physical condition. One thing that should be taken care of early is a visit to the doctor. A yearly physical is a necessity, and in some instances, booster shots are in order. A checkup ensures that your children are free of health-related problems and ready to concentrate on learning. In addition, an annual trip to the eye doctor is recommended to ensure that vision issues will not interfere with reading and classroom instruction. Schedule appointments soon, because the closer you get to the first day of school, the harder it is to get in. Help students adjust their

sleep patterns before school starts. If your family is at all like mine, you let your children stay up a little later during the summer break. Daylight lasts longer, they sleep in, and there’s less of a need for concentration during the summer, therefore, bedtimes tend to become lax. But as the first day of school draws closer, adjust their bedtime so they wake up in the morning ready to start the day. If they start going to bed earlier and waking up at the same time every morning, it will make things a lot easier when the first day of school arrives. Most people spend the summer eating less healthily than they do the rest of the year. Between baseball games and barbecues, healthy food seems to take a back seat. But kids need proper nutrition. Look at the USDA’s food guide as a model for your child’s intake. Most likely, it will mean an increase

in fruits and vegetables and a decrease in simple carbohydrates. Avoid letting your children buy lunch at school every day. Once a week is fine, but daily intake may result in too much fat, too many calories and too few nutrients. Make lunch instead, and they will benefit from the nutrition. To build a well-rounded lunch, start by making a sandwich on whole wheat bread, add small bags of grapes and carrots (or other fruits and vegetables), a small bag of pretzels, a cheese stick, and either yogurt or applesauce. It seems like a lot, but it’s enough sustain them through a full day of learning.

So far, she has put about $1,000 into the pig. She is planning to use the money she makes at the auction for her first year of college at New Mexico State University, majoring in an agriculture-related field. She wants to be able to pay for her own college expenses so she doesn’t have to rely on grants, scholarships or her parents. Altair Bearmar, 16, from Ramona Stars 4-H, raised a black Angus-cross steer that came in at 1,204 pounds. She won second place in showmanship, and the steer received a red ribbon in the market class and fourth place in its division. “He’s a ranch calf,” says Bearmar, who would go out every day and spend time with her steer preparing for the Ramona Junior Fair. She made sure to work with him when he was small because she knew she he was going to get big fast and she needed to be able to control a 1,204-pound animal. Bearmar says it was her first year in large animals and she didn’t know what to expect. She wrote letters to prospective buyers asking them to come to the auction and bid on her steer. After selling her steer at the auction, she is planning on buying another steer to raise for the fair next year. She has already started calling ranches and asking about their

Her pig was tall and lean. “The judge likes short and more stout pigs,” says Krueger. “Judges are different each year, so you can’t plan for it.” After selling her Yorkshire swine at the auction, she plans to use the money for college. She will put the money toward books, “because they are very expensive.” In the fall, she will attend San Diego State University as a nursing major.

Llamas Lead the Pack

By Tiffany Pressler ~ the journal

L

lamas and alpacas made their debut in the Ramona Junior Fair this year, with the help of Ramona Stars 4-H and Poway FFA. Doug Bearmar, a mechanical engineer at Qualcomm and Ramona Stars 4-H llama leader, says it all started because he and his family enjoy backcountry rock climbing. For years, they did it the old-fashioned way and carried their equipment through the Sierras. As he got older, he wanted help. “I thought it would be intriguing to get a pack animal,” he says. During the recession, between 2008 and 2010, many animals were dumped. Llamas that were abandoned migrated to a ranch in Alpine, where a rancher was kind enough to feed them before contacting the U.S. Forest Service to get them. Bearmar’s wife, Michelle, works for the Forest Service as a civil engineer. She knew her husband wanted llamas, so she and her friends wrangled the animals and brought them home. The Bearmar family

now owns six llamas, with plans to get five more from a ranch in Colorado. There are two big differences between llamas and alpacas. Llamas are twice the size of alpacas. Alpacas have wool fiber that is longer and thinner, and is considered better than llama wool and even sheep wool. Both are from the camelid family, which are distinguished by a split lip. They are not hoofed animals, like a horse, goat or hog. Their feet feature toenails and a soft pad like a dog’s. They are incredibly agile and have a light touch on the trail. In preparation for caring for and training the animals, Bearmar took classes, attended seminars, read books and had one-on-one meetings with llama trainers. “I am trained to learn,” he says. “I threw myself into learning how to train these animals.” A llama pack consists of one big saddle and two panniers, which are like saddlebags. The animals can carry up to 80 pounds and walk over the same terrain that a person can. They have incredible endurance at high elevations.

Bearmar packs them every Tuesday night and takes them out into the Cleveland National Forest. Once a month, he packs and trains with the Ramona Stars 4-H group. Each llama has a different temperament. Bearmar says he has to understand and train each llama differently, noting that you have to “leave your ego and short temper at the barn door.” Llamas are prey animals, and he has to train them similar to training a horse. They have good eyes, hearing and legs to run away. To train them effectively, he has to know how they are wired.

They learn very quickly, so when they give you the right behavior, you take the pressure off. The animals can pack for up to 16 years of their 20- to 25-year lifespan. Bearmar and his oldest daughter, Altair, 16, recently returned from a four-day packing and fishing trip near Durango, Colo. They used llamas from Highline Trail Llamas in Wyoming. It was a trade-off — they used the llamas for their trip, and in turn they trained the three llamas they used. They went out into the Colorado Rockies and packed more than 200-pounds of gear. As they worked

with them, they took the saddles off and on to get them used to it. “You will see territory you never knew existed,” he says, adding that all you have to do is carry a lead rope and bring along steaks and perishable items. Bearmar helps Poway FFA and Ramona Stars 4-H with training. He has obstacle courses set up, and they also train and hike. Every couple of weeks, Poway 4-H will come to town and train See Llamas lead the pack continued on page 10

It was a lot of work attending the fair board meetings to be able to have these unique animals join the Ramona Junior Fair. They even gave the board a demonstration by putting packs on the

The Ramona Stars 4-H group showed the Bearmars’ llamas at this year’s Ramona Junior Fair, while Poway FFA showed alpacas owned by its own organization. Denise Kelly is the Poway FFA alpaca leader and a major supporter. Both of Bearmar’s daughters, Altair, the llama junior leader, and Tenaya, 13, participated in the exhibition. While these animals have been trained for pack and not performance, the kids have the opportunity to train them for performance and find that it’s practical to take them places to use their abilities. The Stars 4-H group trained the llamas on an obstacle course, known as a performance. They go through tunnels, around poles, over bridges and through water traps, and lie down, load in the trailer and jump over drums. The Ramona Junior Fair performance had 13 obstacles. All of the llamas in the performance are female. If you mix male and female, there is “llama drama” on the trail. “We just keep building up and improving,” Bearmar says. “I like coaching and I like helping animals.” The exhibition this year won the hearts and minds of the Ramona Junior Fair Board. Next on the agenda, he says, “We are going on the road with a PowerPoint presentation,” adding that he is in the process of making a seven-minute video.

He plans to go to all 4-H, FFA and Grange groups in San Diego County to help them start their own llama groups. Next year at the Junior Fair, they will step it up by getting more participants and more complicated obstacles, all for one simple purpose: “We want to keep it growing.” n

School Supply Drive to Benefit Boys & Girls Clubs Michaels Stores, Inc., is participating in a national supply drive to give children a good start to the new school year by offering the public a way to donate needed supplies. According to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater San Diego, too many kids in our community are falling behind in school and life before they even get started. They need basic supplies, like pens and notebooks, to succeed in school and build a great future. The supply drive is an in-store and virtual campaign for donations that will help

prepare club members for academic success. “We are proud to partner with Boys & Girls Clubs to give kids the needed school supplies to better handle their workload and succeed academically,” said Chuck Rubin, Chief Executive Officer of Michaels Stores, Inc. “At Michaels, we believe in making a difference in the lives of our associates and customers by supporting organizations with a strong focus on families and children. Visit a Michaels store in person or donate online at www. greatfutures.org/backtoschool. n

The Ramona West End Fire Safe Council will co-host a free, gold spotted oak borer field day at Dos Picos County Park on Aug. 21. Check-in is at 8 a.m., and the event is from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. About 80,000 oaks that were killed by the gold spotted oak borer have been removed in South County, said Kristi Mansolf of the FSC, who adds that the pest has been found in Ramona. The oak borer — an invasive, non-native insect — has attacked and killed tens of thousands native oak trees in San Diego and Riverside counties. Field day organizers say the goal is to inform people about its threat and impact, including symptoms of a borer attack, how to diagnose a declining tree, and what to

do to limit further infestation. Information about this continuing threat will be helpful to land managers, arborists, property owners, volunteers and others who are concerned about the stewardship of oaks and oak woodlands. In addition to the Fire Safe Council, event sponsors include the County of San Diego Parks and Recreation; County of San Diego Agriculture, Weights and Measures; USDA Forest Service Forest Health Protection; and University of California, Cooperative Extension. Dos Picos County Park is located at 17953 Dos Picos Park Rd. Refreshments and handout materials will be provided. Registration is required. Visit www.gsob.org or call 858-614-7624. n
