Sometimes late at night when everything is quiet outside and inside my house, I heara vehicle heading up or down the highway and I wonder where it's going. Are the occupants driving home? Are they traveling a long distance or will they soon be safely tucked in their beds. When my children were young, we traveled a lot. I didn't work full time, so we drove to Oregon five or six times each year, discovering new places along the way and visiting relatives in several Oregon towns. At those times, as the sun set and lights came on, I'd glance at windows in the homes we passed, wondering if the families were together getting ready to sit together eating dinner. After dark we passed homes and I wondered if the children had been bathed and put in their pajamas, ready for a bedtime story. Maybe that's one reason I like to welcome people to Julian. Traveling can be lonely. It can also be a very good experience when meeting nice people along the way. When I travel, I try to find out about the people I meet. I don't get real personal, just a little curious. One trip took my boys, my nephew and I along Highway 49, through California's gold rush country. We stopped for a late lunch at a Pizza Hut in Placerville and met a very friendly young woman who took our order and served our meal. As I talked with her, she asked where we are from. I usually answer that we come from the mountains east of San Diego. As our conversation progressed, I found out that her grandparents had owned the piano store on Adams Avenue in Normal Heights just west of the bridge that goes over Fairmount Avenue and separates Normal Heights from Kensington. I knew the store well. My grandparents and my aunt and uncle all lived in Normal Heights near Adams Avenue. As children, when visiting grandma and grandpa, we walked or rode our bikes from their house all around Normal Heights, exploring. Sometimes we headed to the store next to the piano store. That store sold carved soapstone chess sets, animals, ash trays and lots of other items deemed treasures in the eyes of a child. On other trips, I've been at least a half state from home and met people who attended church with my children's great aunt and uncle who live in Spring Valley. In Spain, I met Spanish people who know of Julian. Can you say Apple Pie in Spanish? Pastel de manzana! They exclaimed. I can't say that I've made lifelong friends when I travel. I seldom write down names of people who visit Julian. I just really enjoy the few minutes that we spend sharing our thoughts and ideas. I never pick up hitchhikers or stop for stranded vehicles. However, if I see a stranded motorist, I phone for help at the first opportunity. I like to see places that are new to me and I like to meet people along the way. Working with the public in downtown Julian gives me plenty of opportunities to talk with travelers. I seldom travel more than a few miles each day now, so I like to hear about all of the places our visitors have come from and traveled to. One day in early November of 1983, my then husband Dennis and I drove our children to Julian. We ate lunch at Kendall's Korner (now Buffalo Bills). We talked with our waiter Tom Kendall, asking him what it's like living in the tiny town of Julian. Because of Tom's answers, his friendliness and because a house up Third Street that I really liked was for sale, we moved here the first weekend of February, 1984. I was born in San Diego, raised in San Diego then La Mesa, and moved to Julian 25 years ago this week. Though I like to travel when I can, these days I'm very content sitting in my home in the mountains, wondering where that vehicle is going in the quiet of the night. .... These are my thoughts.

Bank Safe With Our Special CD Offer Julian Students And Their Teachers Shine! by Robin Boland Community Parent Coalition Teachers here at Julian High School have taken our Positive Action- Recognition program seriously. They have given a few moments a week to acknowledge students who exhibit positive behaviors. Positive behaviors come in many forms. We would like to recognize when a student makes progress. Some of the classes these students face are challenging. It is easy to get overwhelmed. When a student stands up and tackles those challenges, it is a positive thing and they should be told "way to go!" Helping others, lending a hand, saying encouraging words; these are all positive behaviors that need to be seen and acknowledged. In addition our students have stepped up to help out a project or an event. Seeing a need and filling it is an important quality to possess. It is what makes a good employee, a good business owner as well as a solid community member. The Community Parent Coalition would like to recognize the teacher who has consistently stood up to recognize students. She has kept her eyes and ears open for just such behaviors. We thank Ms. Ariele Brooke for her outstanding efforts in recognizing students for their progress and their achievements. It is no small thing that she has taken the time to spread the word of the good that goes on daily at our school. Here is a listing of the most recent students recognized for standing out in the crowd with positive behaviors: continued on page 6 The Ice Storm by Chris Tuthill I Love trees...actually i feel a kinship to trees. It probably began with my father. He took us, as small children, on long driving trips through California. As we meandered through the small farming communities of the San Joaquin Valley we learned to recognize a walnut and a pear and a peach and an apricot tree. Then there were his beloved sugar pines in the California gold country along with the multitude of Ponderosa pines. No wonder then that one of the-days that is seared into my memory came years later on October 26, 2002 when my husband and I sat in tears as we watched workers saw down the remaining charred magnificent 75 foot tall, 100 year old Coulter Pines that had graced our property in Julian before an arsonist decided in his insanity to start a fire. Those trees were in their way a bigger loss than our home. Fast forward to 2009. We are living in another state and an ice storm is predicted. We are not exactly foolhardy so we got out the candles in anticipation of power outages, the Coleman stove and lanterns that has served us so well in evacuations over the years. We even have a Coleman Mr. Coffee. We think we are like the boy scouts prepared for any emergency. We were not prepared for the night of the ice storm. Monday afternoon it began to rain ice; just very small particles and our outdoor decks were covered which made walking difficult. I can handle this ice storm ...I thought. I was wrong. The ice continued through the afternoon and evening...and the next morning we awoke to a most magnificent sight. All the trees were covered with ice and the ground was white with a stunning combination of ice and snow.
