One item 8B was removed from the agenda at the request of the applicant, Jennifer Robinson 5049 Highway 78, Santa Ysabel. That left the action item 8B- 2. STP-004 Julian/Cuyamaca Fire Station 3404 Highway 79 (Mosler Property). The Group had previously given preliminary approval for this project to move forward as presented. Pat Brown and Kevin Dubler were in attendance to answer any questions. Brown reported there were verY few minor changes made to the project plan. The question came up as to whether the original structure was a historical building. Brown is still in the process of determining that item but felt he should hear real soon. If it is a historical building, he reported, the original part would be relocated but not the additions to the structure that had been made in later years. Another question was asked to the probability of the new fire station hooking up to the Majestic Pines Water District. Dubler felt the likelihood was slim to none of that happening. A motion was made to approve the application without conditions. The vote carried with one abstention and one no vote. With no other items on the agenda requiring action the meeting was adjourned. The next regular scheduled meeting with be on April 12th, 7pm at the Town Hall.

The entries will be judged once again by Jay Pengra, who, along with his wife Faye, had the vision of the first Julian Daffodil Show. The judged entries will be on display Saturday and Sunday in the Town Hall and experts from the National Daffodil Society will be on hand to help answer questions. The Court of Honor table will be on display during the weekend at The Blue Heron Garden Shop and Gallery, 2116 Third Street. This year's show will once again have a youth division and youngsters are encouraged to bring their blooms for entry. The youth division has grown steadily over the years and it's hoped that many more youths will get involved this year. The Julian Arts Guild will sponsor a daffodil themed art show again this year that will also be in the Town Hall. Artwork from students of Julian Elementary School will also be on display. You will be able to enjoy the Daffodil Show and the daffodil inspired art at the same time!

Julian 1Wews file photos Pioneer Museum Launches Historic Membership Campaign by Bobbi Zane The Julian Pioneer Museum, long managed by members of the Julian Woman's Club, is now independent and has launched a campaign to build a membership support group. "Our museum is now an independent non-profit," Susan Fowler explains. "We are looking for individuals or families who wish to support us by becoming founding members." Becoming a founding member of the museum is a chance to get in at the beginning of a new life for the museum that has long been called "Julian's little attic," Fowler explains. "It holds a number of collections donated by families whose members played important roles in the town's history. Among these is Richard Bailey, grandson of town founder Drury Bailey, who recently donated a display case filled with family memorabilia. For the first time in anyone's memory, the opportunity to participate in operating the museum is open to anyone who is interested, Fowler explains. Even now, anyone who enjoys history and meeting interesting people is invited to become a docent. Docents usually work two days a month, assisting visitors and answering questions. To get started call the museum at 760- 765-0227. Currently the museum is being managed by a small group of interested individuals who completed the transfer from the Woman's Club and organized the membership drive. "We hope to get as many as 200 people to join our support organization," according to Fowler, who prepared letters of invitation for distribution throughout the community. The founding members will select directors and officers of the new organization. Founding members, who will pay $25 per person or $35 per family, will receive free entrance to the museum for the rest of this year, one free guest pass, and 10 historic postcards. The drive will run through April this year. The Julian Pioneer Museum has already embarked on a building project that will enlarge exhibit space to accommodate the Native American collection and add a loft that will hold archives and computers that will be available to scholars. To join the museum support group, send a check to PO Box 511, Julian, CA. For further information about becoming involved in the museum, contact Susan Fowler at 760-765-1626. Julian High School Principal Cara Kern, Michael Kempsey - Fleet and Internet director from Toyota Poway, and Julian High English Department Chair Jennifer Wylie are all smiles as Mike presents a check for $250 toward new text books for the English Department. The Julian High School English department would like to upgrade their textbooks. To that end Jennifer Wylie has sent letter to businesses and non-profit organizations throughout the county soliciting funds to help pay for the new books. Over twenty thousand dollars needs to be raised to replace the existing, out dated materials. The first contributor to the fund is Toyota Poway, who has pledged to donate $250 for every new Toyota they sell if the purchaser mentions Julian High School. Mike Kempsey of Toyota Poway came to Julian on Friday (March 12) to present the first check and is hopeful that he will be making more trips in the near future. "We see this as a unique opportunity for the dealership and the school to partner on a project that has the potential to benefit both of us."

The kids had a great time, and the skill improvement was apparent throughout the three divisions. It seems that time went too fast because of how short the season was, however I am very thankful for everyone's support which allowed the league to continue. For the upcoming 2010-2011 season, the board and I are looking forward to a twelve week season that should kick off around late November or early December. The return of the Shoot-Out dinner will also be welcomed with great anticipation next season. I want to remind everyone that there is a final Julian Youth Basketball All You Can Eat breakfast fundraiser at the American Legion post at the corner of Washington and Second Street on Sunday, March 21st, from 7:00am to 11:30 am. Everyone in the Julian community is invited and all proceeds benefit the children involved in JYB. These children are our future, and the skills they learn from being participants in our local sports programs turn them into brighter, stronger individuals. The veterans at the American Legion are the pillars of our community. Because of their strength and integrity, they empower the children of Julian to succeed in athletics and academics. Being the granddaughter of a WWll veteran, I am so very proud to be associated with these great men and women and what they have to offer .our community. So please come join us for a delicious breakfast and good conversation at the America Legion on Sunday morning. New Members Always Welcome
