Rancho La Puerta Nosara Rema M. Cross January 11, 1920 - January 25, 2010 Rema M. Cross was born January 11, 1920 in Arizona and raised in Arizona and California and was a former resident of Julian for 40 years, residing in Laguna Woods, CA., Orange County since 1998. She passed into the arms of her Heavenly Father on January 25, 2010. Her daughter, Margaret Joal and a family friend were by her side as she peacefully began her journey home. Family and friends from far and near gathered together to memorialize and celebrate her life on Jan. 30. at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (Mormons) in Laguna Niguel. Internment was in Westminster, CA at Westminster'Memorial Park. Of all the places Rema lived as an adult, her heart belonged to Julian: For many years, Rema was active in the American Legion Auxiliary, Post 468. She loved the Auxiliary which was demonstrated in the positions she held, her favorite being responsible for bringing new members into the Auxiliary, She was so dedicated and successful that she brought special attention to the Post and Auxiliary for her outstanding work. She was well known for her service to others, her devotion to the Auxiliary, and her wonderful cooking which was her #1 hobby. She shared her delicious dishes with the Legion and Auxiliary on special events through the year. Added to her wonderful cooking was her famous English Toffee that her friends and family would received every Christmas. For her kids and grandchildren, it wasn't Christmas without Mom's or Grandma's delicious candy. Rema had two sons and a daughter, Mike, Richard and Margaret Joal Holliday. All but her daughter resided in Julian for High School and later, Mike was the resident officer in Julian for the California Highway Patrol until his retirement. She leaves 10 surviving Grandchildren, 17 surviving Great-Grandchildren, serveral nieces, nephews, a Sister- In-law, cousins and, legions of friends. Her greates joy was being surrounded by family and friends. She will be missed by all of those that knew her which was to love her. She will be in our hearts until we meet her again, how joyful that will be. Love is a tender plant; when properly nourished, it becomes sturdy and enduring but neglected, it will soon wither and die. -- Hugh B.

This year's tour features 6 diverse private residences within the valley, demonstrating the different living opportunities available in Borrego Springs. The six include two in Montesoro Country Club. While both are traditional Santa Fe homes with varied angles, thick walled construction and extensive adjacent courtyards, each is strikingly distinct in design, interior space and feel. Other diverse homes include a traditional California Patio home located on a golf course with extensive well designed gardens to provide privacy and a modern Southwest Pueblo at the valley's north end with purposely placed windows to frame spectacular distant vistas and views. Also on tour is a estate home built in the Rancho California style, a design which blends Mexican and Italian influences and includes high beamed ceilings, travertine floors and large interior spaces. The sixth home sits high in the valley with close in mountain and desert views. Using the skill of an accomplished watercolor artist and the natural palette of the desert, the artist/owner tailored this contemporary Hacienda style home to fit its environs.

Through the years, I've witnessed basketball as the sport I would worry more about. With football, you.wear an armory of padded protection. Basketball is fast paced, often times cut throat, and no padded protection. Jumping up for a thrown ball or re-bounding a ball tends to get you a thumped nose, elbowed eye or at the least, knocked to the ground on your backside! In my years at Julian High (1980-1984) I was the stats keeper for boy's basketball. We had the phenomenal coaching team of Shot and John Linton. Two brothers tag teaming each other for some action packed basketball. The games would be fiat out boring if there were no technical calls. Technicals on the coaches were just that much more exciting. It wasn't poor sportsmanship it was week night basketball at its best! Many games were decided in the final minutes of the last quarter. Depending upon whether your star athletes held tight to four fouls or their top scorer got his five fouls first. Now I'm not saying that type of basketball works today. Even regular fouls are often times seen as un-sportsmanlike conduct, but this gives you an idea of what has immerged or changed in the basketball world over the past 25 years. I'm sure other older alum could tell me even more stories. Sports as a whole has changed in today's world. To me, that doesn't make it better or worse, just different. On Friday Julian Eagles played the Borrego Rams. This was an important game for the two teams as it very well could establish league championships. For the Lady Eagles, although not a huge winning season, it has been a growing and gathering season. The team is largely composed of freshman. Three of the junior players know what this feels like since they were in the same positions as freshman... The Lady Eagles win over the Rams was a huge success of many sorts for the girls. They played hard, and their long practicing paid off. High Point was Junior Rowlynda Moretti with 13 points. Following her was Freshman Hannah Elliott with 7 points. Final Score was 35-28. Congratulations Ladies! continued on page 13
