January 15, 2014 Make, Model, Serial Number... Please Do you know the make, model, and serial number of everything you own? Few people do. If someone stole your chain saw, computer, weed whacker, or GPS would it be simple to identify and return to you? In most cases the answer is NO. When a Deputy Sheriff takes a theft report their goal is to gather as much information as possible to increase the likelihood of returning your property. You hold the key to increasing the chances of getting your items back. It is very frustrating for the Sheriff's Detectives when they recover a cache of chainsaws, hand tools, laptop computers and more but they can't identify the property to return it to the rightful owner. Modern technology makes it simple to record the make, model, and serial number of anything you own. In the "old days" we had to get out our pen and write down inventory information. Today, we can use our smartphones or digital camera to take a photo of the item and the area with the serial number and other identifying information. Store the information in a safe place- hopefully you'll never need it but if you do, you'll be very happy that you have it. Do you keep the receipts for the, items you purchase? Technology has come to the rescue again - you can either take a photo of the receipts or scan them into your computer to create an inventory file. You won't have to keep boxes of paper receipts - you can store the information digitally. Be sure to make a back-up copy of the inventory information - we all know someone who had all their family photos on a camera that was either lost or stolen - and now, no one in the family will talk to them because all of the photo memories are gone. Don't be that person. What about the "old fashion" way of identifying your property? Do you use a can of spray paint and mark your tools? Do you wrap a piece of colored tape around the handle to make it easy to find your equipment? There is a new product called "Crime Dots" you can purchase to secretly identify your property. The dots are applied to your property and law enforcement can "read" them with a special tool. You can still use an etching tool to inscribe your name or an Owner Applied Number onto the valuable items. Providing serial numbers, photos, and identifying information about your lost or stolen property is vital to solve crimes and, potentially, to return items to their true owners. You can make a difference in the outcome of a situation with just a little effort. Call Sheriff's Crime Prevention Specialist Barbara Wallace at (760) 738-2425 if you have questions or need other crime prevention information. Supervisors Seeing New Signs In Our Future People living in or visiting San Diego County's unincorporated communities may soon start seeing a lot more signs -- welcoming them to town; telling them about special events; or directing them to local attractions -- after County Supervisors unanimously approved new sign rules Wednesday. "1 think the new sign and banner ordinance is going to help distinguish the unique characteristics of each of the unincorporated communities," said Board Chairwoman Dianne Jacob. The board's vote Wednesday(l/8) will repeal the County's current policy 6fbafifiiiicj OmmUnity siboffg o"6h"o'nTy roads &de'-ff rules that allow a number of different kinds of signs and banners -- permanent and temporary. Because the rule changes will create a new County ordinance, the action must be approved by the Board again when they meet Jan. 29, and would take effect 30 days after that. The staff report that was presented to the Board Wednesday said that allowing signs to be put up on County roads could establish a greater sense of place and community character without sacrificing road safety. Supervisor Bill Horn, who, with Jacob, brought the issue to the Board's attention in 2012, said that cities have long been able to put up signs on their roads and that it was time that unincorporated communities had the same opportunity. "Signs bring new visitors and'visitors bring money," Horn said. "And that's pretty simple." The new rules would allow six types of community signs and banners to be put up in the public right-of-way in unincorporated communities: Community Identification Signs: ground mounted or street-spanning non-commercial civic-oriented decorative signs. Community Information Signs: ground mounted, non-commercial, civic-oriented decorative signs with changeable shingles that identify upcoming community events and enhance community character. Directional Wayfinding Signs: Networks of uniform, permanent, directional and destination signs to show people how to get to civic, cultural, visitor and recreational areas, so long as they are placed in or near established village areas. Neighborhood and Business Watch Signs. Horizontal Street Spanning Signs: temporary, decorative signs to announce or promote community events in a village area. Vertical Pole-Mounted Banners: temporary, decorative signs on street light poles to announce or promote community events or recognized holidays. For Over 60 years Step Up, Take Your Swing by Jim Kaltenthaler Even though we are only two full weeks into the new year, (2014! Yikes! ), it is time for the parents and families of Julian baseball and softball playing kids to step up to the plate so that your little Tony Gwynn's and Jennie Finch's are ready to take their own mighty swings come this March. Yep, that's right, baseball sign-ups are once again upon us and the Julian Little League is trying to make it even easier, as well as cheaper, for all involved this year with our January early bird .special. When school starts this coming Monday (January 13th) baseball sign-up forms will be available at the elementary school office for easy pick-up and drop-off. Julian Little League is going old school this year when it comes to getting your kids signed up to play. There will be NO JLL website this year. Instead, we have decided to go face-to-face with everyone so that all questions and concerns can hopefully be attended to quickly, and hopefully, to everyone's satisfaction. This year for all who BEGIN the sign-up process in January, your cost will be $75. With one simple $25 down payment (per child) before midnight January 31'st, 2014, you will be locked into the discount price of $75. After the 31st the price goes up to $85, and March 1st, $95. All we ask is that you contact our Player Agent, Ms. Toni Sturla ( 760-803-1525 ) and make arrangements for a payment schedule , and you are good to go. How much easier can it get to sign your boys and girls up for a spring and summer full of fun on the beautiful diamonds of Jess Martin Park? When handing in your application you will also need three (3) proofs of residency, which must all be current. Also needed will be medical insurance info for your child, as well as an original copy of their birth certificate. If your child is a returning player then we should have your kids certificate on file, in which case all we need to do is see the original certificate. Little League rules are very strict with the residency and birth certificate obligations. We know it seems a bit of overkill at times, but we have learned from last years All-Star trip that these things will come into play. Not necessarily for our kids, but for other teams that we do play. All forms and payments, along with the required paperwork, may then be returned to the elementary school office or directly to Toni on Saturdays at youth basketball games, where she will be camped out watching games with the rest of us. Along with sign-up applications at the elementary school, we will also have volunteer applications available for all of you who simply must be a part of this years season. Coaching, umpiring, team moms, concessions, and a list of many other positions are always needed to make our season move smoothly, So don't be afraid ...... SIGN-UP! We also want to make everyone aware that we are already pre- selling tickets for a our annual breakfast sponsored by the Julian American Legion, one of our biggest supporters in the community. All monies will go to the purchase of equipment, supplies, and everything else that is needed every year in order to help our kids play ball. This is always a fun and popular time at the Legion, so we encourage everyone to get your tickets early. Through the years this event has proved to be the single biggest fundraiser each year for Julian Little League and we hope that it will continue to be for years to come. Thanks to everyone at the Julian American Legion for their time and effort! One last thing... When most folks hear the words Little League they think of baseball. All of us involved with JLL want all families and kids to remember that Little League is also all about SOFTBALL! We can't emphasize enough how much we want softball to be as big a part of Julian Little League as our baseball program. Parents, and especially the girls of Julian, SIGN-UP FOR SOFTBALL! We have the fields, the volunteers, and the spirit to make softball something special. Not only is it fun for the girls but in the long rum it could lead to other things that we as parents don't always think about. Softball is a growing sport, especially in college. Scholarships are always available for softball, (as well as baseball). It's just something to think about, along with the fun your girls will have playing, with and against their friends. Keep your eyes peeled to the Julian News for more information about the upcoming season as we get closer and closer to spring! Winery Ordinance Stakeholder Workshop SanDiego County Planning & Development Services (PDS)will host a stakeholder workshop on the County's Tiered Winery Ordinance. The purpose of the workshop is to solicit input from interested parties on proposed changes to the Tiered Winery Ordinance. Information gathered at the workshop will be evaluated and used to formulate the final draft documents to be presented to the County Planning Commission and Board of Supervisors at upcoming public hearings. The workshop will be held at 10:00 Jan. 17 in the public hearing chambers at the San Diego County Operations Center located at 5520 Overland Avenue, San Diego, CA 92123.

Start Smart Teen Driving Class The Start Smart Program is an opportunity for new drivers and their to clearly Serving Our Com n0000rcial Neighbors Residential tit Payment Options parents/guardians understand their responsibilities when a teen starts to drive. Taught by trained law enforcement personnel, it creates awareness of possible consequences, both financial and physical, of distracted or impaired driving, and provides applicable information about collision prevention. The class also clarifies the restrictions of the Provisional License Law and touches on social host ordinances. The often-graphic videos and daunting statistics provide a powerful reality check that lingers long after the classroom instruction. Following the two-hour class, each teen is presented a certificate of completion along with a custom- designed key-chain bearing the theme of the Teen Safe Driving Program, which will serve as a reminder each time he or she starts the car. This is a concerted effort intended to reduce the risks associated with teen driving. Class will be Wednesday, February 12, 6:30pm at Rancho Buena Vista High School. Registration is required: call 760-940-4551 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. The Julian News 3 WE ACCEPT Groceries. Fresh Produce. Sundries Beer. Wine Liquor Dry Gleaning Lotto.
