On December 30, the Julian S.T.O.R.M. held an Orange Belt Ceremony for C.W. Holeman, which Pastor Mike Madigan from Calvary Chapel Julian, opened and closed with prayer.

Holeman, i i Megan Brown, Andrew Retz, Laura Rose Pawlicki, Jonathan Retz, Luke Smith, Daniela Retz and Michael Dornon who was unable to attend the ceremony.

Jann Browne and The Dangerous Neighbors In Julian January 8th Country singer/songwriter Jann Browne and her band The Dangerous Neighbors will be performing in Julian on Friday, January 8th at the Bailey Babecue and Nightclub. Jann has a long history in the Country Music scene, working as a vocalist for the legendary Texas swing band Asleep at the Wheel before she moved to Nashville in the 1980s, where she was signed by Curb Records and released her first album "Tell Me Why". This initial effort was a surprising success, which resulted in her being nominated as Female Vocalist of the Year by the Academy of Country Music. The California Country Music Association also honored Jann as Entertainer of the Year two years in a row. She has played on The Grand Old Opry and Hee Haw. Jann has recorded with Emmylou Harris and performed with Country legends Vince Gill, Marty Stuart, Alan Jackson and many others. As a songwriter, Jann and guitarist Matt Barnes had their song "Trouble's Here" recorded by Lee Ann Womack and quickly became their first gold record. A singer/songwriter whose eclectic body of work has embraced both retro-styled honky tonk and tough, bluesy lyrical introspections, Jann Browne is an artist with the talent to craft a mainstream success and the guts and integrity to walk away from Nashville when she grew uncomfortable with the music industry. Jann Browne was raised in Indiana and developed a taste for country music from her grandparents, who were members of a square dancing troupe that often performed at bluegrass festivals. However, Browne's own musical impulses leaned more toward rock & roll and blues, and as a teenager she began performing with local rock bands. In the late '70s, Browne pulled up stakes and moved to California, where she began writing and performing new songs with a stronger country influence. After a brief stint as a vocalist with Asleep at the Wheel, Browne moved to Nashville, and her material caught the ear of Curb Records; in 1990, Browne was signed to the label and she released her debut album, Tell Me Why, that same year. Tell Me Why was a surprise success, spawning two hit singles, "Tell Me Why" and "You Ain't Down Home," and earned Browne a nomination as Female Vocalist of the Year by the Academy of Country Music. However, Browne, a maverick who felt at home with such off- mainstream country & western artists as Emmylou Harris and Iris DeMent, both of whom have recorded with her, very soon discovered she had little taste for the politics of the major-label music industry. After her second album, 1991's "Only When I Laugh," failed to sell as well as her debut, she opted out of her contract with Curb and moved back to California. In 1995, she recorded her third album, "Count Me In," for Red Moon Records, an independent label in Europe (it later received an American release from the independent Cross Three label). The albur displayed a rawer sound that had more to do with blues and rock than mainstream country, and while it didn't find a large audience in the United States, it won a number of enthusiastic reviews and re-established Browne as a singer/songwriter with a sharp and distinctive vision. For her fourth album, 2001's "Missed Me by a Mile," Browne continued to re-assert her independence by co-producing the album herself, and releasing it in the United States on her own label, Plan B Records. Her latest release is a tribute to country legend and Bakersfield, California entrepreneur Buck Owens. Another pioneer who headed west, Buck Owens from Sherman, Texas and Jann Browne from Anderson, Indiana. As Buck once explained, "Out here in the western part of the continued on page 7 Julian News PO Box 639 .h.J]iar CA. 92036 Change Service Requested  .,,, PRESORTED STANDARD Permit No. 30 Julian, CA I1,1,,I,,I,,,,11,,11,,11,,,,,11,,I,II1,,,I,,I,,,I,1,11,,,I,,11 Small Town Papers TFN 5026 California Ave SW Seattle WA 98136-1208 ) Chipping Away At The Fire Threat by Sherry Engberg Eagles Athletics Boys Basketball- Wed.- January 6, 2010 away @San Pasqual Academy 5:30 Thurs. - January 7 HOME SD Jewish Academy 5:30 Mon.- January 11 HOME Calvary Christian (Vista) 5:30 Wed. - January 13 HOME Lutheran HS 5:00 Girls Basketball - Wed .- January 6, 2010 away @San Pasqual Academy 4:00 Thurs. - January 7 HOME SD Jewish Academy 4:00 Mon.- January 11 HOME Calvary Christian (Vista) 4:00 Wed. - January 13 HOME Lutheran HS 3:30 Boys Soccer- Fri. - January 8 HOME River Valley 3:15 Wed. - January 13 HOME Calexico Mission 3:30 Girls Soccer- Fri. - January 8 HOME River Valley 1:30 Mon. - January 11 HOME Foothills Christian 3:15 Wed. - January 13 HOME Calexico Mission 1:30 Before and After chipping in Pine Hills, piles of debris turned into mulch and cleared space. photos by Bob Engberg There's a lot less flammable brush in Julian lately. The Pine Hills Community Association recently sponsored a free chipping day with the help of the Fire Safe Council of San Diego County. Local property owners received printed request forms in the mail. The forms are available on the website of the Fire Safe council, but the Pine Hills Association hoped to encourage more participation so they mailed out the forms to around 200 property owners. Property owners wishing to have chipping done, had to stack up the brush and branches under 10 inches in diameter, and arrange them cut end out near the road, complete the forms and send them back to the Pine Hills Association. Fourteen property owners participated in the chipping and another 10 or so residents turned in the forms on their own and had their excess brush taken care of. The contract was awarded to Storm Streamer of Four Seasons Tree Company. Storm's company started taking care of the chipping in early November. Three rain and snow storms delayed the completion until mid-December. Tina Burnett of the No-Cost Chipping Service said they have a budget through February. So it is still possible to request chipping of brush and branches. The Fire Safe council relies on grants and donations. Donations can be made to the Resource Conservation District of Greater San Diego. Property owners can go to the website at to get more information and make printed copies of the forms.

Merchants Are Inviting You To "Thank A Teacher Dinner" And "Tip" Drive The Julian Merchants Association has planned a "Thank a Teacher" week for our community teachers to benefit Julian Elementary, Jr. High and High School.

From 5:00pm to 8:00pm they will be offering a "Buy one burger, get one off special." They will also offer their full lunch menu to diners who come in to support and thank our teachers. To make the event even more fun, school staff will be bussing/waiting tables for tips. Buffalo Bills will be donating 20% of the night's proceeds to benefit the teachers of Julian. Also, a tip bucket will be set out for donations. In addition, participating members of the Julian Merchant's Association will be placing "tip buckets" on the counters of their establishments marked "Thank A Teacher." These buckets will be available for an entire week (January 25 January 31st). All monies collected from both events will be donated to the Julian Educational Foundation and divided among the threes schools for the benefit of the teachers at all three schools.
