February 25, 2009 Rachel Carter's Historic Flight Tribute by Vee Lumpkins Back in March, 1994, nine year old Rachel Carter climbed aboard the Piper Arrow III plane, took over the controls, got airborne and took off on her flight from sea to shining sea. She circled Mt. Soledad and in New York, she circled the Statue of iLiberty twice and then began her westward home trip ' She holds the record for transcontinental flight as the youngest female and will always ;hold this title as the Child Safety 'Act was passed which prohibits children from attempting to accomplish this ever again. I received the nicest gift this past Christmas from the Carters. 'Dad Jimmy who accompanied Rachel took movies of the flight and Rachel in action, and presented me with a video of it. Jimmy Carter has copies available and anyone interested Rachel and Jimmy at Statue of Liberty in this lovely souvenir may have for a donation of $25.00. Contact Jimmy or Joanne at 760 271- 8806. Mom Joanne works at Mom's Pie Shop. .Rachel is still unable to get permission to pilot aircraft due to her heart ar.g_ery, but nothing will keep her on the ground.

Tattered Tidbits About Banner by Albert Simonson Hanging around the County Supervisors' office is not exactly living life to the fullest. You may have worked yourself into a lather about some issue, but it gets downright tedious waiting for it to come up on the meeting agenda until you get your allotted one minute to complain. But there is something else to do there beside fuming and stewing. Ask the clerk to show you the old Supervisor Minute books. I like the 1871 book because it has a lot about Julian and has an antique air about it. It's a very big leather book wherein each meeting's minutes were recorded in faint brown sepia ink with better penmanship than spelling. Already on page 3 we read "In the matter of the Julian precinct, petitioned from the electors of Julian City praying for an election district." The supervisors granted Commercial Residential Payment Options 24 Hour Emergency Service  ,,, '"  Trained ., tWJCOUNOL Ben Sulser, District Manager the petition with Mike Julian and L.L. Howland as Judges of Election and Edward Flannagan as Inspector. Polling was to be at Hurst's Hall. Also granted was an election precinct for Banner City with L. Bailey as Inspector and polling down the hill at "Mark Garrett's new store." On July 18, George Washington Webb, builder of the toll road to Banner City, petitioned on behalf of the company's president for a reduction of tolls for wagons hauling wood. Business was slow and they took in only three dollars a day. Webb also petitioned that the tolls apply one mile to either side of the road, to prevent cheapskates from slipping past up on the mountainsides. According to a map by the County Surveyor, the toll road ran from Main Street under the present post office, library, school, and down the north side of Banner Creek. Portions of the road are still in good shape with stone embankments, sometimes on both sides. According to the MinuteBook, "In the matter of the Julian and San Felipe Toll Road," the supervisors approved a schedule of tolls. At the high end was one dollar for each loaded wagon with 4 animals, but wood-haulers were only charged one way, as Webb and L.F. Wilcox had petitioned. Two-horse wagons were charged 75 cents. One-horse buggies got by for 37 and a half cents. Men on horse or mule back paid 12 and a half cents. Passing livestock were 5 cents each except for goats, sheep, and hogs for 1 cent. Apple pioneer Thomas Brady was named as grand juror on page 48. On page 69, it was ordered that the road from "San Ysabel to San Felippe" be known as The Julian Road District, with John Sabines as Road Overseer. On that same page, it appears that Webb was rejected as Assessor. Webbhad other- troubles, too. He and. John Horrelt, Julian's first merchant; had to sue Wilcox for the road construction costs. He did his_next road, the one through Cuyamaca to El Cajon, entirely on his own. The name "Sa'rFelipe" stems from the time when Spanish colonial troops chased horse thieves near an Indian village of that name. By 1834, it became a legal rancho under Mexican law, with corn and pea fields and clusters of Indian dwellings. A requirement of the land grant was that the heathens be treated well. What we now call the Banner Grade followed a natural passage along the Elsinore Fault, a well-watered way for animals and Indians to move between mountain and desert. Gold rush forty-niners such as the sons of John J. Audubon and his fellow naturalist Bachman, described it as a creekside bridle trail. Journalist Durivage and all-around scientist, Dr. C.C. Parry, described it in detail. Major Heintzelman and fellow officers frequented the trail during the Indian Wars in 1851. Later, there were mines and Chester Gunn's quartz mill just north of the creek, and all the excitement, drunkenness and violence of Banner City. You can read all about it next time you have some time to kill down in San Diego. First Thursday Parenting Group* March 12, 2009 - 6:00 PM Julian High School - Room 4 Speaker: Carol A. Bartz, Ed.D.
