March 7, 2012 Quincy Rose Marsh February 22, 2012 - February 26, 2012 Quincy Rose Marsh was born to Katie & Dan Marsh at Sharp Mary Birch Hospital on the eve of February 22nd via c-section. From several pre-natal ultrasounds, she was suspected' to have trisomy 18, a rare chromosomal disorder. Two days after her birth, this diagnosis was confirmed. She was born at 32 weeks gestation (following 2 weeks of hospital bed rest for Katie) and consequently she had to reside in the NICU. Ninety percent of babies born with trisomy 18 don't live to birth. We were very lucky to get four days with her. In her final hours, the NICU staff removed her tubes and dressed and swaddled her in pink. We held her in our arms until she slowly and quietly slipped away. Quincy leaves behind two little sisters - five-year-old Tabitha and three-year-old Willow. We have lived in Julian for about three years,. This is the first time our family has experienced living in a small town. We are so grateful to our friends and neighbors here who helped us during this challenging time. It was so comforting to know that we had your support while Katie was on bed rest and while we spent time with Quincy in the NICU. A few weeks before I went on hospital bed rest I called UCSD Medical Center to make a dermatology appointment. A young woman answered the phone, "UCSD Medical Center, this is Quincy, how may I help you?" I was rather shocked by the coincidence because I had never met a female Quincy before. I told the young woman my baby's name and she agreed that it is a rare name for a girl. As fate would have it, my dermatology appointment fell on the Monday morning just a half day after Quincy died. I phoned UCSD again, this time to reschedule my appointment, bracing myself for Quincy to answer the phone. "UCSD Medical Centerl this is Angel, how may I help you?" Good-bye, our sweet Quincy Angel. Please watch over our family. We will remember you and love you forever. Love, Katie, Dan, Tabitha and Willow Marsh Accidental Artist continued from page 1 Borrego Valley surrounded by the magnificent Anza-Borrego Desert State Park. In this book, Lindsay recounts how Breceda has become a renowned artist in ten short years with no previous art training or even interest in art. The book features over 250 full- color photographs that depict the sculptures under many lighting conditions that bring these figures to life. Breceda has taken a primitive welding art form of Mexico to new provocative heights by creating startling sculptures of astonishing artistry and craftsmanship. Until a few years ago this gifted artist, dubbed "the Picasso of Steel," was an injured construction worker and a cowboy boot salesman. An accident unleashed his hidden talent while his entrepreneurial skills prepared him to take advantage of opportunities that came his way. This book is the fascinating journey of how this artist came to be. Inspired by science, history, nature, whim and fantasy, the amazing figures have become a tourist attraction, drawing visitors from around the world.

The Julian News 7 At Bailey's This Saturday The G String Daddies, a high energy power trio out of San Diego, play what can be described as "retro rock" a dynamic and soulful sound - infused with blues, rockabilly and a dusting of punk ?n? roll, all with the drive of Americana on the road. Their newest release, "Workin? At The Booby Trap?", takes you on a ride that will evoke moments of every decade of rock n? roll, fueled by the often searing and sometimes sweet guitar work of frontman Hugh Gaskins. Look out the windows and you might catch a glimpse of anyone from Jimi Hendrix and Mark Knopfler to Elvis and Fats Domino. Check the rearview though, and you?ll know the starting point for this journey was rooted in the blues. Live in Julian.

Can you please identify ff and give me the name of a dealer who buys such lamps. -- Lloyd, Surprise, Ariz. A: Your lamp was manufactured by Loevsky and Loevsky White Metal Castings, a company based in New Jersey that specialized in reproduction lamps and fixtures. It closed in about 1978. Your lamp was made in 1973, and is, indeed, a reproduction and not rare. I hav e seen similar lamps at antique malls and in thrift shops priced for less than $50. Q: I have a book in the "Tell a Tale" series entitled "Lfftle Black Sambo." I also have the Viewmaster reel that goes with it. Can you help me determine the value? -- Florence in Dubuque, Iowa A: Before I answer your question, let's review a little literary history. The character of Little Black Sambo was introduced in 1898 by Helen Bannerman, the daughter of a Scottish minister and the wife of a surgeon in the British Army in India. The story she wrote was set in India and vividly describes a young boy's encounters with four tigers. The book was so popular, she followed it with three sequels: "LittleBlack Quibba," "Little Black Quasha" and "Little Black Mingo." It wasn't until the 1930s and '40s that "Little Black Sambo" began to take on negative raial connotations. The book has gone through dozens of editions, but I believe your "Tell a Tale" version is probably from the 1950s. If so, it is worth about $25. The reel you have might be valued at about $10. One of my favorite references in this field of collecting is "The Art and History of Black Memorabilia" by Larry Vincent Buster (Potter, $34.95). Q: / would like to find the value of an Alice Caviness necklace that was given to me in 1957. -- Charlotte,. Okeechobee, Fla. A: Janet Gaynor is the owner of AZillion Sparklz and has bought, sold and appraised vintage costume and fine estate jewelry for more than two decades. She might be able to help you determine the retail value of your necklace. Her contact information is P.O. Box 35038, Tucson, AZ 85740, and www. sparklz.com.
