Moved away in 1950, but still had family here. She has six children, three of each variety, Lily started writing in the late nineties, and has published eight books, most of them in limited editions. Wrote "Another Visit with Lily" in 2010 which is available from author. Skiing Recently my daughter asked me to go skiing with her family. I gave her my usual answer, "No". "Oh get a life, Mom," she said. I mulled that over a bit and decided that indeed it was time to do something new and so agreed to join them for a week on the slopes. Keep in mind that this is not something I have done before. I have, however, often visualized myself gracefully-swOoshing down the slopes as bystanders admired my form and chic outfit as I shot past them; or perhaps skillfully glided by them and came to an abrupt halt at the feet of some poor inept skier who had fallen. I would offer my assistance and he would be impressed by my charm, skill and,beauty. I also saw myself at the end of the day in the lodge, apres ski, isn't that what they call it? There I would meet a tall, elegant gentleman with a healthy tan and an athletic build. We would dance the entire evening, looking deep into each others eyes while he would tell me how irresistible I was. You get the idea. Back to reality. We checked into the Condo, and early the next morning headed out to the slopes. I was confident in my undiscovered natural ability. Skiing must surely be an inborn Swiss talent. There was a minor problem getting the ski boots on. It wasn't easy to reach my feet bundled in long johns, sweaters, scarf, bulky ski pants, all layered over a slightly expanding mid-section. After a lengthy struggle and some .help from my grumbling companions we finally succeeded. We trooped to the lift for an exhilarating ride to the to the lodge.. Jessica, (a 17-year-old grand daughter) and I enrolled for a lesson on the bunny slope. The rest of the party started skiing. It was soon apparent that Jessica would be the one flying down the slopes to admiring looks and applause. I, alas, was so inept that they soon banned me from Northstar-Tahoe as a disaster about to happen. No handsome man, no apres ski, no admiration, no swooshing, just collisions, falls, bruises, and yes, humiliation! The rest of the week Allison, (my 11-month-old granddaughter) and I stayed close to the condo and consoled each other that she was too young and I too old to take up skiing. It does not matter how slowly you go, as long as you do not stop. -- Confucius 50 Years Ago January 17, 1961 U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower's Farewell Address, televised from the Oval Office on January 17, .1961, illustrated the onetime five-star general's skills and charisma as new media(television) communicator. One main purpose of his Farewell Address was to remind the nation that of four catastrophic wars in the twentieth century, three had seen the United States embroiled in the conflict. This final speech of the Eisenhower Presidency came to be known as the "military-industrial complex" speech, and that term became popularized by his use of it here. A was used as a rallying cry throughout the Viet Nam war only to fade away in the next two decades. "My fellow Americans: Three days from now, after half a century in the service of our country, I shall lay down the responsibilities of office as, in traditional and solemn ceremony, the authority of the Presidency is vested in my successor. This evening I come to you with a message of leave-taking and farewell, and to share a few final thoughts with you, my countrymen. Like every other citizen, I wish the new President, and all who and the Julian Community present the 4th Annual All You Can Eat Benefit Breakfast for the advanced tickets ONLY $7.00 now available Sunday February 6 th 7:00AM -- 11:30AM American Legion Hall - 2nd & Washington - Julian The Warrior Foundation through the Navy League is a Non-Profit 501c3.

January 19, 2011 Marie Howard, A Woman Of Grace By Michele Harvey Julian has lost quite a few friends this past winter and it seems that every week we read of at least one scheduled funeral or memorial. I've written very little about those friends that our community has lost, yet I feel a need to write about Marie Howard. Saturday Mike and I attended the memorial service for Marie at Julian's Methodist church. It was her send off and though many of us suffer the loss of a very good woman, we know she is now able to join her husband Dec who died in November of 2002. Marie, Dec and their two children moved to Julian in December of 1983, just about two months befo:e I moved here with my family. My first meetings with the Howards often came about from meeting them at school events and at times that one or all of us were volunteering for some local organization. Later, Marie, Dec, me and our children became active members of the Community United Methodist Church of Julian. Dec and Marie often had a houseful of teenagers when their daughter Tara was in high school. My son Robert was one of the teens who liked to hang out with the Howards. Though Robert was no angel, he was respectful in the Howard house and they always treated him respectfully in , return. When I read in the church newsletter that Marie needed a kidney, my son Robert asked if he could donate one of his. Several people stepped forward, offering to give Marie one of their kidneys. She was that kind of person. She was so good to everyone around her that people looked for ways to pay her back for her kindnesses. In August, 1999 my son Robert gave a kidney to Marie Howard and we have literally been related ever since. Recently when we learned that Marie was losing the use of that one good kidney, Robert was upset that his gift to her didn't last longer. I understand. Marie is the kind of person that we want to live forever so she can influence people with her gentle grace. Just a few weeks ago Marie told me that no statistics exist on the amount of time a donated kidney will last. So many factors make it impossible to predict the length of time a person's life will be extended. Marie's life was extended nearly twelve years beyond what she would have had without her young kidney. She continued her volunteer hours at church, she saw and enjoyed grandchildren that weren't born before she received her kidney and she enriched the lives of many of us in the nearly twelve years of life that were given to her with her donated kidney. Those precious years enabled Marie to touch many lives in positive ways. Marie was the kind of person who made me feel better about myself when I was able to spend time with her. She had a very level head, looked at all matters with complete logic and had the ability to easily sort details, separating important from less than important. Though I know that in her daily life she must have experienced things that irritated or frustrated her; I really can't remember a time when I saw her actually get angry. She lived her life with complete grace and the grace she exuded flowed onto the people she was with. Sometimes I was lucky enough to have simple, small conversations with her that improved my entire day. She led by example and watching how she lived her life gave me hope that I could learn to be like her. The Marie Howard that I knew had a wonderful sense of humor. When I picture her in my mind she is always smiling or laughing. She was never petty. She didn't gossip, she wasn't a complainer and she was very gracious. I notice that I complain too often, I hate gossip, though I sometimes catch myself gossiping and sometimes I get petty about things that shouldn't matter. Picturing Marie in my mind helps me to be a better person. When Mike and I entered the Methodist church to attend Maries memorial service, we saw a poster sized photo of her and Dec in a field of yellow flowers. They were such young adults when the photo was taken and I burst out with tears for the young people we all used to be. Mike said that we all grew up together, and he was right. Many of us met each other when we were young adults and we grew up as adults, as parents and as community volunteers. We matured together and we raised our children together. Julian is where we all chose to raise our children and we all did our best, though I think Marie stood apart from the rest of us. She matured with such grace. A few weeks ago I wrote a column about my blessings. Marie Howard blessed many people with her presence, and this woman of grace will be missed deeply by many people for many years. I just wanted to share my thoughts. will labor with him, Godspeed. I pray that the coming years will be blessed with peace and prosperity for all. Our people expect their President and the Congress to find essential agreement on issues of great moment, the wise resolution of which will better shape the future of the Nation. My own relations with the Congress, which began on a remote and tenuous basis when, long ago, a member of the Senate appointed me to West Point, have since ranged to the intimate during the war and immediate post-war period, and, finally, to the mutually interdependent during these past e'ight years. In this final relationship, the Congress and the Administration have, on most vital issues, cooperated well, to serve the national good rather than mere partisanship, and so have assured that the business of the Nation should go forward. So, my official relationship with the Congress ends in a feeling,. on my part, of gratitude that we have been able to do so much together. II. We now stand ten years past the midpoint of a century that has witnessed four major wars among great nations. Three of these involved our own country. Despite these holocausts America is today the strongest, the most influential and most productive nation in the world. Understandably proud of this pre-eminence, we yet realize that America's leadership and prestige depend, not merely upon our unmatched material progress, riches and military strength, but on how we use our power in the interests of world peace and human betterment. II1. Throughout America's adventure in free government, our basic purposes have been to keep the peace; to foster progress in human achievement, and to enhance liberty, dignity and integrity among people and among nations. To strive for less would be unworthy of a free and religious people. Any failure traceable to arrogance, or our lack of comprehension or readiness to sacrifice would inflict upon us grievous hurt both at home and abroad. Progress toward these noble goals is persistently threatened by the conflict now engulfing the world..It commands our whole attention, absorbs our very beings. We face a hostile ideology -- global in scope, atheistic in character, ruthless in purpose, and insidious in method. Unhappily the danger is poses promises to be of indefinite duration. To meet it successfully, there is called for, not so much the emotional and transitory sacrifices of crisis, but rather those which enable us to carry forward steadily, surely, and without complaint the burdens of a prolonged and complex struggle -- with liberty the stake. Only thus shall we remain, despite every provocation, on our charted course toward permanent peace and human betterment. Crises there will continue to be. In meeting them, whether foreign or domestic, great or small, there is a recurring temptation to feel that some spectacular and costly action could become the miraculous solution to all current difficulties. A huge increase in newer elements of our defense; development of unrealistic programs to cure every ill in agriculture; a dramatic expansion in basic and applied research -- these and many other possibilities, each possibly promising in itself, may be suggested as the only way to the road we wish to travel. But each proposal must be weighed in the light of a broader consideration: the need to maintain balance in and among national programs -- balance between the private and the public economy, balance between cost and hoped for advantage -- balance between the clearly necessary and the comfortably continued on page 9 Over 60 years serving the community we five in.
