The Living Room by Lauren Vandewalle Julian Junior High's Publicity Director Amazing things are happening down at the Junior High! Not only is there a garden at the Elementary School, but the Junior High is getting ready to start one too. Next to the portable classroom we already have two rain barrels set up so the rain that runs off the roof will be caught and then used to water plants. The Junior High is following the Elementary School's example by starting to compost our lunch scraps. This is only the beginning for our new garden! We hope to put up a pergola or some other type of outdoor enclosure like a gazebo first. Then hopefully once the project takes off, there will be garden and herb plots, benches and picnic tables, wildflowers, and even an area to play bocci ball! Our garden has been dubbed "The Living Room". and people here have been getting so excited for this addition to our school. A wish list has been constructed; we hope to get donations of gardening tools, stepping stones, seeds and planting material, outdoor seating furniture, and a mailbox are just .a few items we wish for. Everyone at the Junior High is so enthusiastic for this wonderful paradise. This area will be used by teachers, staff and the students. If you would like to help participate with this very worthwhile project, please contact Mrs. Pettersen at the Jr. High, 765-0575. San Diego River Park Foundation's Annual "Save the Source!"

Highlighted events in the Julian area include a trail restoration service project and open house at Eagle Peak Preserve and an enhancement project at Inaja Memorial Picnic Area. Both events are on Saturday, March 12th. Eagle Peak Preserve is a 516 acre wildlife and recreational preserve owned by the non-profit San Diego River Park Foundation and located off of Pine Hills Road at the end of Eagle Peak Road. The trail restoration event will focus on repairing a historic stage coach trail that runs through the preserve. This historic road brought the first mail to Julian and the preserve includes lands used as a mule-transfer area, where mail cargo was loaded from tired mules to new, fresh mules for the last leg of its journey up the mountains. The River Park Foundation recently worked with the United States Forest Service to complete 3 new shade structures at the Inaja Memorial Picnic Area off Highway 78 between Julian and Santa Ysabel. The scenic picnic area includes multiple picnic tables, a restroom and a beautiful loop trail overlooking the Upper San Diego River Gorge. The picnic area enhancement project is aimed to help beautify the facility and will include work on picnic benches and barbeques.

The U.S. Department of Education has already drawn $4.35 billion in federal stimulus funds for Race to the Top. Federal education officials have said they would like Congress to appropriate another round of stimulus funds for the program. Instead, Enlow said, the Passport Scholarship concept would be a much more effective use of federal dollars. "While states are trotting out ideas such as grading teachers and other accountability programs, in the long run they will do little to move the needle when it comes to improving student achievement," Enlow said. "Use Race to the Top funds for scholarships and you will see much quicker improvement. Kids will get a chance at a better education immediately. Not maybe, or in 'due time,' but immediately." CEO of The Foundation for Educational Choice. "Why not use the money to do something different? Give parents more power. Give them school choice." Under Gottlob's proposal, as many as 630,000 students could earn scholarships over five years. It would help save states as much as $1 to $1.6 billion annually as children transfer to private schools. This is based on scholarship awards of about $2,000 to $2,250 per student, under Gottlob's plan. "State budgets are in a real pinch right now and they certainly could use the savings," Gottlob said. "If it comes down to pouring more money into untested education programs or giving kids school choice, a Passport Scholarship model will yield more parental satisfaction and better student outcomes." Gottlob said he would divide the $4 billion among states based on population. The 12 largest states offering Passport Scholarships would see annual (NAPSA)-While 11 states and the District of Columbia divvy up $4.35 billion in Race to the Top funds to attempt to fix the nation's public schools, a new proposal is being floated to use the same amount of money to offer students a chance to attend the school of their choice. Known as "Passport Scholarships," the plan would create a similar $4 billion fund in unspent federal stimulus dollars and allocate it to all 50 states to create scholarship programs to award children tuition grants to attend a school that best meets their needs. The idea is one penned by economist Brian Gottlob, a senior fellow with The Foundation for Educational Choice. The plan is an alternative to the current Race to the Top proposals that have drawn headlines nationwide. "Race to the Top may just turn out to be another big fat check toward more of the same education spending that does nothing to help students," said Robert Enlow, president and The Julian News 3 Acce )ted Here BlIR, 00rlNI & mnJ00vT8 I eless POrk Cho ...... : ....... : of our More New items from Albert's Organics and United Natural Foods 2117 Mahx Btreet ]lfondsy -- Elegy 9 san - 6 pax 8unds7 9 san - 5 pax 760 765 82OO One doesn't discover new lands without consenting to lose sight of the shore for a very long time. -- Andre Gide Julian Historical Society Holds Presentations on The Fourth Wednesday Of The Month at the The Historical Society  I Building House at  7:00pm 2133 4th Street  At Rabobank, N.A., our safe and sound approach to community banking allowed us to add more than 25 new branches in California in the past year with more to follow.
