"Personal preparedness is the public's best protection if a disaster occurs. In order to ensure resiliency in our community, we have to encourage every resident to take steps in their own households to minimize negative impacts," said Ron Lane, Director of the County Office of Emergency Services. Residents can take three simple steps to be better prepared in the New Year: 1) Make an emergency supply kit; 2) Make a family disaster plan; and 3) Become informed about the hazards that could affect your community and learn the appropriate responses. By storing an emergency supply kit at home, your vehicles and in your workplace, you will be starting the year off prepared. Emergency supply kits should include basic necessities such as water, non- perishable food, first-aid supplies and flashlights. Vehicle kits should also include blankets, road flares and tools that could assist you if you became stranded.

A native California, Kiki had studied Political Science and related subjects in college. "1 took one art history class," she said, "and the first assignment was to write about the college Field House. I hated the building and wrote the scathing kind of paper only a Freshman would turn in. I got a "D" and was devastated. But the valuable lesson had been learned--tell people what they want to hear." "Years later," she added, "our class reunions have a lunch in the Field House which is still on campus. It's a horrid, ugly, noisy, hot building and I still hate it." "Fortunately," Kiki continued, "1 don't have to paint to please anyone except myself. In North Carolina, where I first began to work with pastels, I paid very little attention to my teachers because what they were saying didn't resonate. Here in Julian, however, there are some outstanding instructors--Stan Goudey, Helen Wilson and others--and you want to pay attention to them." Kiki now works in oils and is painting representational pictures as she learns the craft of putting the paints on canvas. She doesn't have enough time to paint but, she adds, there isn't enough time to do any of the several dozen things she likes to do. Kiki has also been the President of the Julian Art Guild since 2007.

Some people, no matter how old they get, never lose their beauty - they merely move it from their faces into their hearts. -- Martin Buxbaum Saturday January 16th - Touring The Top Of The World With Nancy Kramer At The Library Since it was first opened to foreigners in the early 1980s, the undisputed holy grail of trekking has been the 128- mile horseshoe-shaped route that circles Nepal's heavenly Annapurna range. Julian resident, Nancy Kramer, trekked that famous route in 1988, longing for more after completing a trek in the Everest region in 1986. Nancy is definitely classified as a world traveler and qualified to make this statement: "There are treks that are more rugged, pilgrimage sites that are more holy, wildlife that's more exotic, and perhaps even scenery, although it's hard to imagine, that is more beautiful, but I know there is no other trek in the world which has the diversity of geology and cultures, fauna and flora, and the variety of magnificent scenery from jungle and monkeys majestic snow- covered mountains, the highest in the world, all in one compact area that can be experienced in a 20-day trek from 2,000 to 18,000 feet. It's life changing! In fact, that's how I ended up in Julian," explains Nancy. " I returned home to San Diego after that trip, realizing I need a view of the mountains out my windows to feel at peace with the world." Within two years time, I had bought land in Julian, built a house with lots of windows framing the mountains, and sold my home near Mission Bay. I've never regretted that move." Nancy and a group of close friends hired a Sherpa and 6 months later, flew to Kathmandu. "1 packed for a month for that trek," she recalls, "making sure I had the latest and greatest new fabrics to keep me as comfortable as possible in the variety of climates we were going through; GoreTex, Capaline, etc. My luggage, unfortunately never made it. I had to borrow, rent and continued on page 8
