After three winter storms over the past eight weeks Spring weather and the blooms turned up for the Daffodil show. Visitors also came just for the show as a line formed outside the town hall Saturday morning waiting to get in and see the "pretty flowers" This years show garnered over 700 blooms (a far cry from the first years 120). .. Blue ribbons abounded in the Town Hall as the blooms shown in their glory, some multiple winners in all categories. To see the Best of the best one had to travel to the Blue Heron where Dennis Winship's Best of Show was displayed along with the best in each class. Dispite the snow, and the early bloom, this was still the largest number of bulbs entered and the most individuals taking part. The real question is how many actually took care, or just plucked them from the side of the road.

Electric.Car Charg,ng Stations May Be In Our Future Thanks To State Settlement NRG Energy Inc. and it's predecessor company; Dynegy, settled a law suit brought by the State of California over the costs of long-term power contracts signed during California's energy crisis a decade ago. Other companies involved in the crisis included Enron Corp., Williams Companies Inc., Duke Energy Corp. and Mirant Corp. Most reached settlements with the state several years ago. The agreement dedicates $20 million to utility-customer relief. The rest will fund at least 200 public fast-charging stations and another 10,000 plug-in units at 1,000 locations statewide, according to an announcement by Gov. Jerry Brown and the California Public Utilities Commission. The announcement represents more than a 10-fold increase in charging stations statewide, according to Mike Ferry, transportation program manger at the California Center for Sustainable Energy. The Chamber has been trying to negotiate, charging station at various locations including the Town Hall. Don's Market in Santa Ysabel is also scheduled to install one. It is unclear if funds from this agreement will expidite those instalations. Some $100 million of the money from NRG will fundat least 200 public fast-charging stations, and another 10,000 continued on page 12 Best Youth : Benjamm Wentler Best Miniture - Gretchen Brown Music on the Mountain Presenting Classical Pianist, Kasey Kay Tuesday, April 3, 6 PM The Julian Branch library and - the Arts and Letters Committee of the Friends of the Julian Library are pleased to present .....

For more information contact Dave Patterson, 760-207-9139 Candidate David Secor I am David Secor. I want to represent you in Congress. At 64, rm a 30-year resident of Crest. My wife Patty (whom rve known since Junior High) and I have been married four wonderful years. Like you, rye never before run for public office. Last July, that changed. It's important that you know why. My life and success were possible due to the post-WWll rise of a thriving middle class. The crushing burden we working people now carry, and our children's shrinking odds of ever seeing the opportunities afforded me and my generation, compelled me to stand up for the middle class that is the heart and soul of our America. I was 12, in 1959, when our family of 6 came to San Diego County in a pickup .truck. We found here a place where we could start over. I graduated from Morse High in 1965. In 1967, I joined the Army and spent 1968 in Vietnam with the 1st Air Cavalry Division, from the Tet Offensive to the joint lstCav/Marine operation in the A Shau Valley and more. Not an officer, I left here e private and returned an E-5 platoon leader. In 197% I received a B.A. in Speech Communication at SDSU, and taught courses as a graduate student. For the next 25 years, I worked like many of you, in jeans and boots - from framing and roofing, to warehousing, maintenance, and truck driving. I was last laid off in 1992. Finally, in 1993, I began 19 years with Superior Court, and last year won an award for service above and beyond the call of duty. Like you, I have been blessed with opportunities not by being born into privilege and advantage, but by sweat, and hard work. So the question I ask you is simple - Would you dare vote for a person like yourself to represent your interests in Washington? Or, should only the privileged Eagles Athletics Sorina Sports - Baseball Wed March 28 home Calvary Christian 3:30PM Wed April 18 home Calipatria HS 3:30PM Friday April 20 home Mountain Empire 3:30PM Wed April 25 home Vincent Memorial 3:30PM Friday April 27 away @ Vincent Memorial 3:30PM Tuesday May 01 home Ocean View Christian Softbafl Thursday Mar. 29 home San Pasqual Academy 3:30PM Tuesday April 10 home Escondido Adventist 3:30PM Thursday April 12 away @ Ocean View 3:30PM Wed April 18 home Calipatria HS 3:30PM Friday April 20 home Mountain Empire 3:30PM Wed April 25 home Vincent Memorial 3:30PM Friday April 27 away @ Vincent Memorial 3:30PM Track Friday Mar. 30 @ Mountain Empire High School (Red Hawks Relay) 3:00PM Saturday Apr. 14 . @ Valley Center High School (Jaguar Invite) 9:00AM Friday Apr. 20 home Calvary Christian School "(Southern Confrence #2) Golf Thursday April 05 Borrego Springs, Guajome Park @ Classical Academy - tba Escondido Adventist @ Warner Springs - tba Wednesday April 11 Vincent Memorial, Escondido Adventist @ Borrego Springs - tba be allowed to set our nation's priorities? Like you, I take no money from PACs, lobbyists or unions (and NO contributions over $100). Like yours, my vote will not be for sale ever. My two primary goals, and t hope yours, are 1) to give our young people a future - save and reinvigorate the middle class and 2) to ask the people of district 50 to send a message to the nation - that we aren't just talking, we are showing the nation that money cannot buy a Congressional seat in this District. Action, real ideas, and positions that truly benefit all the people, jobs with a living wage, fair taxation, protect Social Security, Medicare and women's health, make quality K-12 education a top priority, save the Postal Service, reign in federal spending, defend all of our Constitutional rights, and term limits for Congress-that's what matters here.
