Loretta Ketcherside "Celebration Of Life" Sunday, January 17 2 o'clock At High School A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. Jan. 17 at Julian High School for Loretta Ketcherside, who always knew how to make people feel at home. Usually having a cup of tea and cookies for anyone who happened to dropped by, and people seemed to be always dropping by. Loretta died December 19 of pancreatic cancer at her Julian home. She was 83. Hospitality was a way of life for Loretta, said friend Chuck Kimball, who credits her with getting him into the bed-and- breakfast business. He met the Ketchersides nearly 30 years ago when their operation was fairly new and he was stranded in a snowstorm with no accommodations. "The Julian Hotel and Pine Hills Lodge were full and (the Ketchersides) took us in. Loretta let people sleep on the floor, whoever walked in the door, she took them in. She opened her arms and her home to others," Kimball said. "At least four other B&Bs started because of the Ketchersides. She was an inspiration. She was instrumental in starting the Julian Bed and Breakfast Guild." Amy Morris, who became friends with the couple after becoming a regular at Shadow Mountain, said Loretta was known for her warmth and for preparing large wonderful breakfasts that might include zucchini pancakes, fried eggs, sausages and fresh fruit. She was born Feb. 15, 1926, in LaVerne to Ruth Marie Douglass and Walden Delenzo Fink. Mrs. Ketcherside was in the U.S. Nurse Cadet Corps from 1945 to 1948 and received her bachelor's degree from the University of Southern California. James "Jim" Ketcherside said he met his future bride when his parents sent him to pick up his sister, who was also in the nursing program. Later, when his sister asked if he'd like to be set up on a date with anyone, he said he was interested in her classmate, "the one in Levi's and pigtails. I thought she was just about the prettiest thing I'd ever seen." "1 didn't know it at the time, but my parents had picked her out for me," Ketcherside said. He later learned that his future wife had seen his picture on his sister's dresser and had already agreed Loretta Ketcherside February 15, 1926 - December 19, 2009 to the date before he asked. "It was meant to be." Jim Ketcherside, who was principal and superintendent of Julian High School in the 1970s, said his wife often chaperoned school dances with him and was the nurse for the football team, attending all the games. "1 paid her a whole dollar a year for that," he said. "She loved it here. She knew everybody and everybody knew her." A nurse by training, Mrs. Ketcherside was a strong, nurturing person and a gracious hostess who would offer a helping hand for community events and school parties. When she and her family moved to Julian in 1968, she became the only medical professional in the community and was soon put in charge of the emergency field hospital that could be set up at Julian High School when needed. Her nursing career included working for a prison honor camp in San Diego County and piloting a program educating special education students to become nurse aide orderlies. After retiring, she talked her husband, Jim, into opening a bed-and- breakfast on their expansive property in the Pine Hills area. In addition to her husband, Mrs. Ketcherside is survived by two daughters, Delynn of Julian and Suzanne Crowe of Julian; a son, David of Eugene, Ore.; seven grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. She was predeceased by a daughter, Jennifer. from Blanca Gonzalez San Diego Union-Tribune Julian Tea & Cottage Arts Celebrates 15 Years With Ongoing Bargains Julian Tea & Cottage Arts, now in its 15th year of operation, is thankful to be weathering the current tough economic times and wants to share with its customers a variety of new cost savings.

A Trek Though Nepal With Nancy Kramer This is a continuation of the article started last week about Julian resident, Nancy Kramer's experiences on the undisputed holy grail of trekking, the 128-mile horseshoe-shaped route that circles Nepal's majestic Annapurna range. Nancy Kramer will be presenting a narrated slide show on her experiences in Nepal at the Julian Library Saturday january 16 at l:00pm. Crossing over the Thorong La pass at almost 18,000 feet in altitude: An excerpt from Nancy's diary. .... About 3 AM there was a lot of noise as all the trekkers prepared for the ascent. We were awake most of the night anyway, tossing and turning with a headache and nausea, unable to sleep in the thin air of our camp at 14, 500 feet and getting up at that hour was more of a release from our misery than a drudgery. We slept in the clothes we were going to wear so we would be ready to go, with my camera and water bottle next to my stomach so they wouldn't freeze. You have to start early to avoid the strong winds at the pass. We started out too fast and our Sherpa told us to slow down. "'Fast" is relative; at 15,000 feet one does not move real fast uphill, trust me. The landscape was like the moon, so my umbrella provided the only privacy I had for my occasional bouts of diarrhea. iiiiiiiiii!ili!i!i!i!iizji!iiiii!iiiii!iiiii9 The Julian News 3 iiiiiiiiii# 00iiiiiiii0000i iiifiiifiii[i![i[!iiiliilii:iiiiiitii i[iiiiiii}ii[iiiiiii:ii:ii:i:i:i:ii iiiiiiiiiiiiiiii!i!ii[iN Like a good teacher, Rabobank, N.A is devoted to you.

Penalty for early withdrawal applle We climbed for hours, just concentrating on putting one foot in front of the other, chanting to keep a rhythm going. My back hurt a lot, probably from leaning forward with the weight of my camera around my neck for so long. I was afraid of taking another Tylenol, since I threw up the last one. Strangest of all was my emotions. I could barely contain my tears, especially when I thought of Noriko. I was sure we did the right thing sending her down as people continued on page 9 Nancy Kramer with two of our guides at Poon Hill overlooking Dhaulagiri. 1. December 2009 arrived suddenly and brought us winds and cold temperatures the first week. On the sixth day, rain.began late night and continued fora couple of days. We received about a half inch of snow on the eight day. My rain gauge isn't working and a friend told me that she registered four inches when the storm was over. Following days were clear but very cold. The calendar notified us that on the 21st winter officially began and winter weather arrived promptly. We awakened to rain on the 22nd, a bit of snow flurries throughout the day, very cold winds. Snow had covered us late that night, perhaps a half inch or so but it turned to ice and lasted for five days thereafter and I surely enjoyed my white Christmas. We were hit with wintry weather the rest of the month. 2. It was thrilling to drive around town at night and see the many Christmas decorations brightening up the town, not only in town but in our residential areas I drive through daily. I like the way the crew decorated Main Street. The lower part of the shops had multi- colored lights while high above each building white lights outlined the buildings. The many lights brightly shining around the American Legion building were a sight to behold. 3. So many tourists packed our town the week of Christmas and thereafter until after New Years. 4. Many days our roads were icy and dangerous to drive. It was wonderful of our road maintenance folks to spread sand on our roads at intervals. That helped prevent sliding and possible accidents. Those of us who drive into town daily especially appreciated this. 5. Just before Christmas while at our seniors breakfast, Dana Petterson arrived with her sixth grade girls and presented each of us lovely place mats they had made. They sang also. What a sweet gift it was to us seniors. 6. Something new appeared in my bird garden recently. The leftover dove seeds in my dove aviary. I have been throwing it out in my bird garden along with ordinary bird seed. I always give my doves fresh food each morning. Lately. some wild doves have appeared and look forward to that food. I had never seen them here before and now I am getting more dove and quail mix and put it there for them to enjoy. The finches seem to be gone for the winter. I keep a lots of peanuts in the feeder for the blue jays. There had been one hummingbird around and I made fresh solution of sugar water for it, but it disappeared. I miss them when they are gone for the winter. 7. We have some new folks in town and already we have become friends. On Third Street, Cathy and Rob moved here from Valley Center and they have brought some of their beautiful African sheep. The sheep are beautiful. 8. The month went by fast and was a very busy one and suddenly we find we're at the end of another year. It was a very good and busy year and we look forward to 2010 being a good year also. *** I'M GLAD I LIVE IN JULIAN ***
