We should have been on self-supporting roof- top solar decades ago. ' It is the lack of morality in the utility industry and the unwillingness of the Utility Commission to truly regulate that has caused these many problems. We need to start from the ground up re-building our country on the founding fathers' principles, which paid great heed to morality. In his Thanksgiving Day address of 1789 President George Washington asked that we as a nation "promote the knowledge and practice of... virtue." The examination of one's conscience is the most important act of a human being. It is what separates us from the animals. We urge the Utility Commissioners of the State of California to evaluate the Sunrise Powerlink transmission line using something that they may find to be a novel experience: An examination of a project using the light from their conscience.

This year the Sons of the American Legion will be staging "The Dance" their fifth annual installment of Julian's biggest party. This year will also be the fourth annual Art Contest sponsored by the Sons to develop a logo that will grace all the posters, advertising media and T-shirts. In a sense it will become the identifying face of this event,.which has become the largest individual fundraiser for the Sons and the town of Julian. The first year of "The Dance" was akin to making a chicken from a bag of feathers. Everything the Sons did was new to them and fortunately much of what they did do, laid the groundwork for future events. One thing that went real well was the artwork created by Legion member George Ureta, featuring Lil Abner and Daisy Mae. It was a hit and it truly represented the style and ambiance the Sons were trying to create for "The Dance". For the second year of the event the Sons decided to hold an art contest. It was open to all residents of Julian and surrounding communities that are serviced by Post 468. The winning entry would be the logo for the event and at the time the Julian Library and RaboBank agreed to display all the work submitted by our local artists. That year, there were a total of eight entries. Whether it was poor promotion or lack of interest, the Sons were sweating the entries to see if there was going to be a "Dance" worthy submittal. Fortunately a few of the town's pros were involved and a couple of entries by students were the ticket. The Sons voted on the heart backed silhouette by Brianna Bustillos, and so started the tradition of a new logo each year. Any time you double your previous years' efforts you should feel pretty good. But year two produced only seventeen entries. Once again though, there was some great art. Bria Morgan's boots and lasso gracing the poster was the winner. Year three, Big, (semi big, ok still not what we want). Thirty-eight entries with lots and lots of kids participating. Thankfully our more accomplished artists participated and Bria Morgan made it two in a row. This year we think the level of participation will be large. The Sons would like to, appeal to our accomplished artists to participate. Understandably much of the fine art they create, may or may not make a great poster, but consider what happens with all the work that is submitted.

The day of "The Dance" it is moved to the site and displayed for the silent auction. All the money raised from the auction will go to one of many Julian charitable endeavors of the Sons. As more and more people are becoming part of the committee promoting this contest, a system for bidding on the art by visitors while being displayed is being thought out. We certainly encourage our youngsters to participate, and while their work doesn't draw the big auction dollar, Moms and Dads, Grandmas and Grandpas are always bidding on their kid's work. Granted some of the work is not very good but the contribution of these kids is reward enough. It never fails, that someone, that good-hearted person out there, comes over to the booth at the end of the bidding, scoops up all the unclaimed art and buys it. March 16, 2011 Touching. If you really want to win this contest or if you're an accomplished artist who wants to do something to help your community with the talents you possess, you have to enter. The Sons will generally use the stated theme for their selection. What wins, who knows. Year two saw a six year old in the final mix with a charming pencil and crayon drawing. For info, or application (free) call the Legion @ 760 765- 0126 or 760 215-1711 and leave a message One last quickie is that on Friday the 18th, the Sons will be hosting their mid month dinner. Chef Yon and crew will be cooking steaks outdoors on the grill. Baked potato, veggie, salad and roll round out the plate. Steak dinners sell out fast. It's a large plate of food that tastes great and only costs ten bucks. Get there early.
