With the JCFPD now in negotiations with the County over their future, the County has agreed to once again provide for service through a new “Amador” contract for the Julian Station (#50). This does not signal the end of the JCFPD, it does reinforce the opinions of some that this was a power play by the County. It also means that starting Monday (2/26) there will be back up for JCFPD as the automatic aid agreement will also be in effect. For residents it should save a trip to Witch Creek or Warner Springs to get a burn permit. The restaffing of Station 50 will not include any medical assistance for the district. Staff will be strictly CalFIRE and not assisted by the County’s Fire Authority. Please join us at the Safety Leaders Roundtable in Julian Town Hall, March 2, 2018 (2:00pm to 5:00pm) Recent wildfires throughout the State of California have proven to be catastrophic. In San Diego, we have had the driest start to winter since records began in 1850, dramatically increasing the potential for wildfire. Our preparedness efforts and agency collaborations have made the regional much more resilient, but there is more we can do to protect our communities from wildfire. Join local officials and community leaders as we learn from the American Red Cross about regional preparedness efforts and identify additional ways to work together. Also – come learn from SDG&E’s highly-trained meteorologists on how weather impacts the electric grid, and how SDG&E leadership evaluates technical data and field conditions when making the tough decision to shut off power for safety purposes. Please see the details below. Members of the public are encouraged to attend. Agenda: • 2:00PM – 2:30PM o Open House, with experts from American Red Cross, 211 and SDG&E • 2:30PM – 2:40PM o Welcome and introductions • 2:40PM – 3:00PM o American Red Cross, Ray Chaney, Crisis Communications Director – latest in preparedness efforts and regional collaboration • 3:00PM – 3:30PM o SDG&E Meteorology, Steve Vanderburg, Senior Meteorologist – highlights advances in weather technology and how we all can be better informed 10 MINUTE BREAK • 3:40PM – 4:30PM o Community feedback, suggestions, requests o Public comment o Closing remarks Kumeyaay Knowledge And Use Of Native Plants With Author Michael Wilken-Robertson The Julian Branch library is pleased to be hosting author Michael Wilken-Robertson on March 6, 2018 at 6:30 PM. In his new book, Kumeyaay Ethnobotany, anthropologist Wilken-Robertson explores the ancient and ongoing story of Native Baja Californians and the plants they use to make food, medicine, and traditional arts. The indigenous Kumeyaay people of San Diego County and northern Baja California have long made their homes in the diverse landscapes of the region, interacting with native plants and continuously refining their botanical knowledge over thousands of years. Anthropologist Michael Wilken- Robertson has spent decades developing friendships and learning from the elders that carry on these traditions in the far-flung ranches of Baja California, working closely with the Kumeyaay in the revitalization of their cultural heritage. His book, Kumeyaay Ethnobotany: Shared Heritage of the Californias, brings together many generations of Kumeyaay traditional wisdom and decades of research by Wilken. Called, “a work of surpassing beauty that meets the highest standards of research scholarship,” by Chumash Ethnobotany author Jan Timbrook, Kumeyaay Ethnobotany provides in-depth descriptions of forty-seven California native plants and their uses. It also includes lively narratives and hundreds of vivid photographs from artist and professor, Deborah Small. The book connects the archaeological and historical record with living cultures and native plant specialists who share their ever-relevant wisdom for future generations. “Kumeyaay Ethnobotany provides an enduring work that is a gift of history,” says Former Chairman of the Viejas Band of Michael Wilken-Robertson Kumeyaay Indians, Anthony Pico. “Future Kumeyaay generations will look back and know this scientific contribution was very instrumental on our journey toward cultural revitalization. We Kumeyaay are most grateful to Michael Wilken-Robertson's lifetime work.” Wilken received his MA in applied anthropology from San Diego State University in 2012 with a thesis on Kumeyaay Ethnobotany. The applied component of his thesis included an internship in which he collaborated with the non-profit organizations Corredor Histórico CAREMandFundaciónLaPuerta to create the Tecate Community Museum and Ethnobotanical Gardens. During his time in Tecate, he collaborated with local Julian artist, James Hubbell. He currently teaches Anthropology at CSUSM. We invite you to join us on Tuesday, March 6 at 6:30 pm to learn more about the native plants used by Kumeyaay people. The Julian Library is located at 1850 Highway 78. For more information, please contact the branch at 760-765-0370. Chamber Hosts Safety Leader Roundtable A Real Snow Day - Friday Members of the Julian Community Planning Group held an information only meeting with CalTRANS official on Thursday February 15 to discuss: Turnouts between Julian and Ramona. The feeling of both parties was there is a need for more and improvements to what are already there. The first improvements would be signage along the route, especially coming East (up the hill). New signs are available that would include one that would post a 5 car limit for cars/ trucks required (read a ticketable offense) to pull out. The others would identify that you are approaching a turnout, and the third identifying where it is. Increasing the total number was also discussed. Depending on the scope of the project, CalTRANS would be able to complete the simple sign placements with-in three to four months. The more involved projects, that would include paving and surveys may take as long as 2 years depending on complexity and funds available. CalTRANS was to report back on potential projects whithin the next three to four months and review their proposed work. Eagles Basketball Struggles Early Comes Up Short In Playoff Game The Eagles played catch up the entire game against the San Diego Academy Cavaliers Saturday night at Warner High School’s gym. The game started off with the Eagles and San Diego Academy tied at two... less that two minutes later they were down 10-2 and never got closer, until the games final buzzer. 1st 2nd 3rd 4th final Julian 12 10 15 22 59 San Diego Academy 24 17 16 10 67 The boys from Julian never found their shot, the Cavaliers took advantage in the first quarter by scoring, on what seemed like every missed attempt. The second quarter was more of the same as the Eagles appeared desperate with numerous three point attempts and no one to rebound. The second half saw more focus and better shot selection, and the boys started working the boards for second shots. The fourth quarter the boys showed heart, starting 20 points down their pressure defense began paying off and the three’s began to fall. In the end the hill was too steep to climb and San Diego Academy will move on to face the Division 5 number one team The Cambridge School on Tuesday with the Championship game next on the schedule. Friday proved to be the only day we got any snow after fears of white stuff called off school Wednesday and Thursday. Many parents have vented their outrage that the busses had already picked up their children and in on one instance gotten them to school before classes were canceled for Friday also. Then the kids got a ride back to their bus stops. It’s That Daffy Time Of Year! February seems to sneak in and warm us up in Julian. Apricots are showing, plums are exploded with blossoms and you may have noticed your daffodils are jumping up. Julian’s Daffodil Show will be Saturday March 10th & Sunday March 11th 2018, Noon to Five pm.. We need you to search through your yard for the best blooms: no dirt (use a soft brush to remove), no tears, long stems and proud balanced daffodils.. If you want entry cards early to fill out prior to Friday, March 9th, please pick them up at the Library during the week starting March 1st. Sharpies can mark stems with their daffodil names, if you know them. Donations of all other blooms are gladly accepted to raise funds for the show. If you notice a storm brewing a week to ten days before March 9th, scour your yard for good daffodils. The buds need to have some color on the tips if you expect them to open. Place them in a vase of water in your refrigerator or a cool dark place. The day or two before March 9th, bring them to the light; a windowsill or bright table. Since the nation has noticed this small town show, We all need to bring your best two to thirty stems.
