I '%, Approximately 1.200 acres of biological open space, This open space represents approximately 85 percent of the project site. The dark areas show the 213 acres of developed lands, including building pads. internal circulatory roads and driveways. A plan to subdivide 1416 acre piece" of vacant land into 24 parcels will be considered for approval at the next Planning Commission hearing. This project represents over 12 years of cooperative effort between The Julian Planning Group, The County of San Diego, and the owners, Genesee Properties. The area is known as Hoskings Ranch, just south of State Route 78/79 and west of Pine Hills Ranch Road. The project is unique in that it provides agricultural parcels with large separations between the homes. The homes are intended to support a viable agricultural operation, or modest farming opportunities. The land is restricted bY a Williamson Act contract which offers tax relief to property owners who agree that their land be primarily used for open space and agriculture. This encourages property owners to preserve nature and engage in agriculture, each of which are often difficult and costly pursuits. Prospective buyers of the parcels would be required to participate in agriculturai operations through an agreement with the Homeowners Association, such as the current grazing/breeding arrangement. Currently, the majority of property can be used for widespread agricultural use such as grazing, grape growing, or fruit trees. As responsible stewards of the land, Genesee has. declined profitable offers to lease the land to large-scale vineyards and apple orchards due to the impact on local water resources. The proposed project would preserve 85% of the land as open space, ensure the rural character for future generations, and protect local wildlife and natural resources. The Julian Planning Group, The County of San Diego, and Genesee Properties have worked together in support of a project that has less of an impact on local resources, and honors the recommendations of the Ioca planning group. Local residents have expressed concerns over well water on this project. County- approved groundwater experts performed extensive well tests which determined these homes mile around the property. The ability for the groundwater to recharge was based on rainfall totals going back more than 30 yea[s, and included worst case cenarios such as drought and maximum buildout of the General Plan. The County of San Diego qgrees that this project's design surpasses all their standards for ground water storage capacity. Upon approval of the project, Genesee has no immediate plans for the residential use of the property other than to maintain the pristine terrain and current cattle grazing. They could be supported without remain steadfast and committed neighboring to preserving the sites rural affecting wells. These tests were conducted appearance while maintaining both on the property.and ~ of a the integrity of the land.

So whenever you hear that a small town doesn't have much to offer, I can beg to differ. I had the pleasure of attending the World Records Camp this winter at the Chula Vista Olympic Training Center sponsored by Coach Bill Porter. This was my second time attending this truly remarkable camp, however I was accompanied this time with three other fellow student athletes (Will Hatch, Cary Gannon, and Chelsea Huggins). All of us being League Champions in our events, we represented Julian High School wonderfully. This World Records Camp is put on by Olympic Gold Medalists who are also experienced coaches. Around seventy other high school student athletes had specialized training with well- known names of Olympians such as Willie Banks (Triple Jump), Mike Powell (Long Jump), [)ick Fosbury (High Jump), and Mac Wilkins (Discus & Shot Put). Mr. Fosbury was the most inspirational coach to me, not only because he revolutionized the High Jump by being the first The Only Weekly Newspaper Serving the Backcountry 'ommuni:ties of Julian, Cuyamaca, Santa Ysabel, She-lter Valley, Mt.

Accomplished guitar work and seasoned vocals underscore the characters and towns he comes across in his travels. A California native, he's shared hall stages with Johnny Cash and The Carter Family, Donovan, Shawn Colvin, Utah Phillips, ChristineLavin, Richie Havens, and hundreds of others on the US songwriter circuit. He's been a main-stager at the High Sierra, Strawberry, Kerrville, and Philadelphia music festivals.

Now in its tenth year, the shop is a creative hive for concerts, swaps, jams, and songwriting workshops, hosting over 150 listening concerts, and 350 jams. He's also an Etch:A-Sketch artist of some renown (not kidding) - he illustrates his lyrics, dumfounding audiences with the little red toy. Some of his art hangs proudly on the Mudpuddle Shop walls, waiting for an earthquake. He started performing in New York City, but after six months. returned his roots of California.

I cannot thank him enough for all he has done for me personally, and I think I'm speaking on behalf of my fellow athletes when I say that Coach Porter's kindhearted spirit is still making difference. man to go over the bar backwards but because of his attitude towards life. It really struck me when he told us athletes that "You define your limits" because that's probably the best advice I've ever heard. Sometimes the only person standing in your way is you. This experience wouldn't have been possible without the generosity of Coach Bill Porter. Even though he is a retired coaching legend, he has still found a way to impact the lives of the track and field student athletes at Julian High. Without the support of this truly benevolent man, I would have Sign Ups January 30th from 11-2 at Jess Martin Park at the covered picnic table area. $90 and please bring proof of residency and a birth certificate.
