Julian has been known for many years for it glorious display (f naturalizing daffodils surrounding this mountain hamlet that greets visitors during the spring. Sally Snipes, local Julian artist and gardener, started the Julian Daffodil Project some twenty years ago as a memorial to her father. In those years, over a million daffodil bulbs have been planted around the community by Sally and her volunteers• When they are in bloom it is an incredible sight to see as you wind the roads approaching town. The annual spectacle made Julian the natural choice when Pengra decided to sponsor a daffodil show in Southern California• He contacted Sally in 2005; together they organized the first show held in the Julian Coffee House. The show moved to the newly opened The Blue Heron the following year. The Arts Guild jumped into the daffodil spirit with their first Daffodil Art Show in 2007. Please join us for a daffodil weekend in Julian, March 13, 14 & 15, 2009, and come to the 5th Annual Julian Daffodil Show and Julian Arts Guild Daffodil Art Show and help us celebrate the daffodil ~ the flower of hope. CERT Julian - Community Emergency Response Team The Department of Homeland Security Brings Free Program To Town Following a major disaster, first responders who provide fire and medical services will not be able to meet the demand for these services. Factors as number of victims, communication failures, and road blockages will prevent people from accessing emergency services they have come to expect at a moment's notice through 911. People will have to rely on each other for help in order to meet their immediate life saving and life sustaining needs. One also expects that under these kinds of conditions, family members, fellow employees and neighbors will spontaneously try to help each other. This was the case following the Mexico City earthquake where untrained, spontaneous volunteers 'saved 800 people. However, 100 people lost their lives while attempting to save others. This is a high price to pay and is preventable through training• If we can predict that emergency services will not meet immediate needs following a major disaster, especially if there is no warning as in an earthquake, and people will spontaneously volunteer, what can government do to prepare citizens for this eventuality? First, present citizens the facts, about what to expect following a major disaster in terms of immediate services. Second, give the message about their responsibility for mitigation and preparedness. Third, train them in needed life saving skills with emphasis on decision making skills, rescuer safety. And doing the greatest good for the greatest number. Fourth, organize teams so that they are an extension of first responder services offering immediate help to victims until professional services arrive. Training sessions will be at the Julian Library Starting March 9th from 6 until 8:30 and be held every two weeks on Monday's until June 29th. Upon completion of the course, you will receive a certificate and may receive identification that will identify you as an emergency response team member during disaster response. You will also receive a CERT backpack. The backpacks and manuals are being provided by the Citizens Corps in the office of the Governor and the Department of Homeland Security. For registration contact or by calling 760-310-0976.

Now We Get To Vote? by Michael Hart Remembering back to my High School Civics class (and a few college government classes) we have what is known as a representative democracy. We elect representatives to make the decisions of governing that are, in theory, to tough for us mere voters to make? Our state legislators have just finished passing a budget, late, and part of their plan includes we the voters making the decisions they could or would not. The next regular statewide election was scheduled for June 8, 2010. However, the Legislature and the Governor this week as part of the budget agreement called a special election in 88 days and approved six measures for that ballot. A seventh legislative measure, which had qualified in 2008 for the next statewide ballot, will also be included. So there will now be a special election on May 19, 2009 to do the job we elect people to do for us. The seven propositions for the May 19 ballot are listed below. Proposition 1A State finance. ACAx3 1 (Chapter RC1, 2009), Niello. Senate Constitutional Amendment No. 13 of the 2007-08 Regular Session, as amended by Senate Constitutional Amendment No. 30 of the 2007-08 Regular Session, would, if approved by the voters, make certain Changes relating to state finance. This measure would withdraw Senate Constitutional Amendment No. 30 from the consideration of the voters. Senate ConstitutionaJ Amendment No. 13 of the 2007- 08 Regular Session, if approved by the voters, would rename the Buclget Stabilization Account the Budget Stabilization Fund and would provide that all moneys in the fund not designated for deposit into the Deficit Recovery Bond Retirement Sinking Fund Subaccount may be transferred to the General Fund by a statute that contains no unrelated provisions or may be loaned to the General Fund to address a General Fund cashflow deficit. That measure would further require the Director of Finance, on or before May 29 of each year, to report to the Legislature and the Governor an estimate of the amount of General Fund revenues, transfers, and balances available from the prior fiscal year for the current fiscal year and the impact of tax legislation adopted during the current fiscal year subsequent to the enactment of the Budget Bill. In addition, that measure would provide that if, pursuant to a formula based on those estimates, there are unanticipated revenues in the current fiscal year, those revenues may be used only for specified purposes, and in a specified order of priority. This measure would amend those provisions to also create the Supplemental Budget Stabilization Account, and to establish the Supplemental Education Payment Account if a constitutional provision is added to provide for supplemental education payments, as specified. The measure would also provide that, apart from a transfer made for the purpose of responding to an emergency declared by the Governor, as defined, or a loan to meet General Fund cash requirements which would be repaid within a fiscal year, the total amount that may be transferred from the Budget Stabilization Fund to the General Fund for any fiscal year shall not exceed the amount derived by subtracting the General Fund revenues, transfers, and balances available from the prior fiscal year for that fiscal year • from the expenditure forecast amount for the current fiscal year, determined as total General Fund expenditures for the immediately preceding fiscal year adjusted for changes in population and continued on page 8 Many nights in February are cold, dreary and dark. On such a night, you are invited to join us to hear a dreadful tale from history. Wednesday, February 25, 2009 at 7:00 p.m., The Julian Historical Society welcomes Historian Phil Brigandi. Phil will tell the story of how in 1903 the Federal Government "removed" the Indians that were living on Warner Ranch. They were taken to a new reservation at PalM. This was the last Indian removal in the United States. Phil tells me this is a tragic tale. He has spent years researching this story, including interviewing survivors from that time. Come join us to listen to Phil Brigandi and enjoy the refreshments and fellowship. There will be time for your questions. We will see you at the Old Witch Creek School House, home of the Julian Historical Society, 2133 4th Street, Julian Wednesday, February 25, 2009 at 7:00 p.m. At the Library: Author Arielle Ford Discusses "The Soulmate Secret" Arts and Letters Program - Saturday February 28 at 1 o'clock by Perry Savage Have you ever wondered what it takes to find the love of your life?

If you don't believe you will ever find "The One," then you probably won't. If, however, you learn to believe that The One is not only out there but is also looking for you, then true love can be yours. Using a series of processes called feelingizations--feeling in every cell of your being the outcome you want to create-- Ford reveals how to manifest the man or woman of your dreams. The techniques, rituals, and projects found in "The Soulmate Secret" allow you to prepare your home, body, mind, and spirit for the lover your heart truly desires.
