San Diego County Grand Historically Low For the first time in recent memory, the San Diego Superior Court may not have enough applicants to draw names for the 2017/2018 San Diego County Grand Jury. The Grand Jury performs a traditional function as a "watchdog" over government agencies and investigates citizen complaints. Grand Jurors do not conduct criminal investigations. In November, the Court announced it was accepting Grand Jury applications from San Diego residents, a total of 47 people have applied. In a good year, more than 100 citizens put their names into the blind drawing. "It has been getting harder and harder each year to get people to apply to serve on the Grand Jury. We are having a hard time understanding the public's lack of interest in the work of this very important group of people," say Executive Officer Michael Roddy. Grand jurors are selected via a blind draw from each San Diego County Supervisorial Districts. The random drawing gives each District equal representation by population. At this point, the Court does not have enough applicants in Districts 1, 3 or 5. The Court draws six applicants from each district to cover the alternates and serving jurors. Currently the Court has only has four applicants for District 3, three applicants in District 1 and one applicant in District 5. Applications are now available by telephone at 619-450-7272 continued on page 3 _~HJ_SS TO R ] C . An Independent Weekly Newspa.per Serving the Backcountry (?o nities of Julian, Cuyamaca, Shelter Valley, Mt. Laguna, Sunshine Summit, Warner Springs and Wynola, Pippi Longstocki The Julian branch library is pleased to be hosting the Swedish Center at 2 PM on Saturday, January 14, 2017 as they present a short play on the life of Children's book character, Pippi Longstocking. Following the play, there will be other activities for children and youth, and a lecture for adults in the community room by SDSU professor, Dr. Carole Scott, on the importance of International Children's Literature. Eight children from the Swedish School of San Diego will be part of the performance and you are invited : to interact with the performers. ;; Swedish author Astrid Lindgren began the stories of Pippi Longstocking (Pippi L ,ngstrump) in 1944 at the request of her 9-year daughter who wanted a get-well story while ill and at home away from school. The stories morphed into adventurous tales of a young girl meeting life's challenges with super-human powers. While Pippi is non- conforming and unconventional, she has good common sense, is trustworthy, loyal, assertive, and abhors unreasonableness. She values her friends, is kind and friendly and, most importantly, confident and self-sufficient. Pippi's, unlikely character may have become the embodiment of many Swedish cultural and Pippi: Emma Akesson Saturday At The Library affiliates. "We are excited to be hosting this cultural and literacy event, allowing others to learn more about Pippi Longstocking," says Colleen Baker, Branch librarian. "Julian is blessed to have many connections that bring us amazing events; this one will be fun for all ages." The Julian Branch is located at 1850 Highway 78, Julian.

Minea: Minea SkOld, Svea: Ella Bergsmedt and Maya: Maya Akesson; Narrator: Mirabell Sk6ld pro-social values. Pippi shows that a way exists with strength and good character and some understanding from a few adults, for young people to forge ahead in the face of adversity. Many children and adults in our multi-cultural society have a cursory acquaintance with the stories of Pippi and the author Astrid Lindgren. Lindgren had a gift for storytelling and a concern for humanity. Her books and life demonstrated this concern via her support for the powerless and abused. She could, however, never have dreamed that her books, about Pippi would have such global and enduring impact. She is the world's 18th most translated author, and 3rd most translated of children's books selling close to 150 million worldwide. Her books have been translated into 95 different languages. This program is being brought to the Julian Branch library by the Swedish Center and its International Books For Children Discussion At Library The Julian library is pleased to be hosting Dr. Carole Scott, Professor Emeritus from SDSU, in conjunction with the Pippi Longstocking event at the branch on Saturday, January 14. Scott will lead a discussion for adults at 2:30 PM in the Community room about the importance of International Children's books. (Other activities are planned for : children.) In their book, How Picturebooks Work, Maria Nikolajeva and Carole Scott explore the dynamic relationship between word and image in children's literature. They treat picturebooks as a specific medium or genre in literature and culture, one that prepares children for other media of communication. As such, the authors develop specific theories, terminology, and working tools for discussing the picture book form. Picturebooks may be the most influential media of all in the socialization and representation of children. Spanning an international range of children's books, this book examines such favorites as Curious George and Frog and Toad Are Friends, along with the works of authors and illustrators including Maurice Sendak and Tove Jansson, among others. As a Senior Scholar in the Nordic Children's Literature Network (NorChiLNet) Scott has been involved in a five-year series of workshops and symposia for Nordic graduate students in children's literature, and she has served on the boards of the Children's Literature Association and the International Research Society for Children's Literature. We welcome Dr. Scott to the Julian Library. For more information, please contact Colleen Baker at the Julian branch at 760-765-0370.
