'-.---..][ (TRAUMA) The floor plan for the proposed Julian Medical Center Plans are proceeding on schedule for the new Julian Medical Clinic according to Chuck Kimball, Vice President of thelJulian Medical Foundation. The drawing above shows the proposed layout of the rooms. As the design progresses, the arrangement will be fine- tuned by setting up simulated spaces and running simulated operations. The fine-tuning will make transition from the existing facility more seamless and will result in fewer last minute Changes, according to Kimball. In addition to the main floor shown above, there is a loft over each end of the building that will provide a private office for visiting specialists, an office for the manager, back-up records storage, and a small classroom for classes and discussion groups. Access to the loft space will be by stair and ADA approved chair lift. Two of the seven exam rooms will be designed for special cases. One, at the front of the building, can be accessed from a separate entrance providing a degree of isolation for infectuous disease cases said Sally Baldwin, Site Manager. A second room, at the rear of the building and next to the Ambulance parking space, will be equipped to handle serious cases requiring transport to a hospital. The new X-ray room will be completely digital which will allow sending data directly to other facilities. The new clinic will incorporate as many "green" elements as are possible. Since in-floor hydronic radiant heating will be installed, solar water heating can be used to offset much of the energy requirments of that system. Recent actions by the County Board of Supervisors has made solar electricity generation a Strike Up The Band, Lend A Hand, Benefit For Salvation Army At Wynola Pizza Giving back to those who give so much. Wynola Pizza is planning a benefit for the Salvation Army on January 19th from 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm. Wynola Pizza is donating 25% of all sales to the Salvation Army. A Salvation Army representative wilt be present and The Salvation Army will have band members there to entertain the patrons in The Red Barn. The Salvation Army is an effective concerned organization that clearly understands the needs of the community. During the fires, they were one of the first organizations to come to our aid and the last to leave. They were a major support for our community for a year and a half overseeing our needs with the rebuilding of our homes and businesses. "The Salvation Army has on-going communications, on-going relationships with the people of Julian and this really helped to make the recovery work so effective. It's part of what The Salvation Army calls continued on page 10 real possibility. Our Supervisor, Chairperson Dianne Jacob, has offered her assistance in the installation and startup of such a system. The green belt around the building will be retained as much as possible to provide moderation of the climate during the summer. Conversion to electronic medical records will greatly reduce our paper usage as well as provide the added convenience. We are the first of the clinics in our group to incorporate "EMR" 'and are fortunate to have two staft  members who are experienced in the conversion prdcess. The last three months have been filled with answering the many technical questions involved in the remodel of the building.

" I Construction Superintendent Vic Fejeran of Arrieta Construction and Dale Strong, JCSD's construction inspector confer at the District office prior to the start of JCSD's $225,000 ARRA funded water main improvements in Julian Pines. Julian. Community Services District Begins Payson Drive/ Lot A Road Water Main Improvements. The Julian Community Services District has received a $225,000 grant from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 to complete a series of water main upgrades in the Julian Pines area. The District put the project out to bid in October and Arrieta Construction submitted the lowest bid and was selected as the Project Contractor. The project will finish up the series of upgrades that were begun in 2000 and have been completed in stages as the District had funds available. The District had qualified for Community Development Block Grant funding for portions of the three previous sections as well as using District EDU funds for the work. The District is replacing the last 1800 feet of the 3" steel water lines that were installed in 1949 with new 6" mains and 4 additional fire hydrants. Previously, the District replaced 3,000 feet of the old lines and added 6 dry barrel fire hydrants along Payson Drive and Lot A Road. Over the past 23 years, water main improvements which have increased the fire flow capacity and the addition of 27 fire hydrants have helped the District's and Julian Cuyamaca Fire Protection District's common goal of getting the Insurance Standards Organization (ISO) to raise the fire protection rating from a 9 to a 5. This action has lowered the fire insurance rates for the residents of the District. The District is currently working on a California Drinking Water State Revolving Fund financing package to re-drill the District's Well adjacent to Jess Martin Park and is seeking additional federal funding to replace the undersized water main out to the CALFIRE station and add an additional fire storage tank on District property above Jess Martin Park. Barring any severe weather over the next two months, the Payson Drive/Lot A Road Water Main Improvement Project will be completed by February 28th.
