CuyamaC~I Sa i ~$r Valley, Mt. Lagu~j R Summit, Wa~r ~~ ~la. Volume 25 - Issue 24 Wednesday January 27, 2010 Julian, CA. ISSN 1937-8416 One Wet and Windy and Sno l ' Week by Michael Hart Depending on where you were the storms of last week either soaked you to the bone or blew your roof off. Over 10 inches of rain was recorded throughout the area, in some places as much as 18 inches. Then there was the snow, not as much as predicted last week but enough to lure the flatlanders up the hill on Saturday and Sunday (even though most of town was clear). The wind seemed to be the biggest problem as trees came down and windows got blown out in a number of buildings, including one at the Birdwatcher. The forecast is for winter to continue through the weekend with a respite on Wednesday and Thu?sday but more storms and more rain scheduled for the weekend this time. The 'S' word was not in the forecast, yet! Postmaster Laura Lewis could only grin about the roof being peeled off and hanging in the trees. Time To Get Hazardous Waste Out Of Your Home!

Breakfast For The Warrior Foundation Will Julian do it again? Last year the Sons of the American Legion organized the second annual support for the Warrior Foundation Breakfast, raising over $5000. With over 300 breakfasts sold and additional funds contributed by the community. Every penny taken in goes directly to the Warrior Foundation. No money will be taken out for food expenses. The Warrior Foundation has no overhead or expenses so all monies go to San Diego area wounded veterans. S.A.L. Breakfast has helped many school and community organizations raise funds for 10 years. "We would like to invite all of them to help us help our wounded veterans." Advises Ron Morgan, "advance tickets may be purchased at the Legion, Soundings, or from most S.A.L. members." Come to the Legion Post, Sunday morning February 7th between 7 and 11:30, if you'd like you can also get your breakfast to go.

"When the power went ot in the afternoon, I had to cal it off" said Harry Horner, "We just didn't know if there would be power by the time the event rolled around" As it turned out power in Wynola and Pine Hills came back around 5:30 but by then the damage was done and the weather was looking more ominous. "We will reschedule" said Harry, "although after this week- June looks like a better time" he said with a smile. The Merchant's Association sent the word out on Thursday that the weather was going to cause them to reschedule the "Tips for Teacher" dinner planned for Buffalo Bills on Friday night. "Rock slides on Banner and the snow already on the ground would have made it impOssible for some to get into town for the event so we just decided to reschedule," said Robin Boland, board member and coordinator of the dinner. "Buffalo Bills is selling coupons for the dinner that they are willing to honor during regular business hours." The plan for both events is to find available dates that the weather will be more cooperative. The Merchant's Association is continuing with their fund raising efforts as participating members have "tip buckets" on the counters of their establishments marked "Thank A Teacher." These buckets are available through January 31st. All monies collected will be donated to the Julian Educational Foundation and divided among the threes schools for the benefit of the teachers at all three schools. The teachers will be encouraged to use the funds in any way they feel it will benefit their classrooms. For now though the new dates for the Salvation Army Benefit and "Thank A Teacher Dinner" are To-Be-Announced.
