Sincerely, Cristi Lewis Chairperson, SVEA Silent Auction Committee Spencer Valley Players Deliver A "Killer" Production Of Macbeth It'S true that it takes a village to raise a child, It is also true that I it takes a school, a community, a whole host of volunteers and many hours of work to create a Shakespeare play. This year's production of Macbeth directed by Heidi Schlotfeldt and performed by all the Spencer Valley School students, was a treat and enjoyed by over three hundred people overthree nights. Upon entrance to the theater, the audience was transported to the Renaissance period complete with medieval banners and shields made by the students. The stage backdrop was artfully constructed by artists Bill Duffy and Eric Jan de Lagillardaie and further set the mood of Macbeth's pending dark deeds. Starting this year's production was a lovely Irish folk dance, "Road to the Isles", beautifully choreographed by teacher Liz Jacobsen. To further delight the audience, Scottish music (selected by Heidi Schlotfeldt and Ken Marushige) was laced throughout the play. Other musical delights featured students: a duet, "When the Nightingale Sings," performed in Middle English by sixth and fifth graders, Isabelle Swift and Damiana Andrews-Hensley; a lovely choral performance of "A u Poor Bird", sung in Old English, by the entire Spencer Valley student body, with a piano accompaniment by third grader, Calea Cruz. Musical skits were coached by vocal instructor Gall McKinney. This year's costume de.signs (created by Hiedi Scholtfeldt) were absolute tributes to the period and the Scottish location of the story. All aspects of music, set design, and dance presented a cohesive experience of the Medieval period and set a perfect tone for Shakespeare's Macbeth, which was adapted for the Spencer Valley stage by local author Don Winslow. Hats off to director Heidi Schlotfeldt, producer Julie Z. Weaver, Light and music technicians, teachers, Allyson Jasper and Liz Jacobsen. And a huge tribute to the "31 minds and one heart" group of actors at Spencer Valley School! The young thespians of Spencer Valley School production o'f " Shakespeare's Macbeth.

Temecula, that formerly dusty town in the middle of nowhere that would have been a local Greyhoufid Bus stop if a bus had gone anywhere near. Which it didn't. Temecula has grown up and last weekend hosted a Three Day Event, nationally and internationally recognized, with horses from all over the Western United State brought in to prance abbut and hurl themselves and riders over jumps and gallop across the country, doing same. It was quite a show on quite a facility. The first day was stadium lumping and Dressage. The Husband says watching Dressage is like watching grass grow but We Differ on this one. Dressage has as its goal bringing horse and rider into perfect balance and harmony, easier said than done, and is pursued through a series of increasingly continued on page 11 The Julian News 7 Rachel Coates May 16, 1935 - March 23, 2012 Rachel Olivia Coates, resident of Julian, CA died March 23, 2012 at her home surrounded by family members and friends.

Fortunately, getting it all home at the end of the semester doesn't have to be difficult if you follow a few tips from the pros that know at Penske Truck Rental: Start by picking the proper- size truck for your stuff. Most college students choose a 12- or 16-foot truck for moving out of a college residence or off-campus apartment. Reserve early. Reserve the truck and any moving accessories at least two weeks in advance. Safety first.

Because of the new ticket machines in the casinos, I believe my cardboard containers are now collectible. -- Tony, Sun City West, Ariz. A: I contacted several collectors who buy, sell and trade casino gambling items such as tokens, chips and even ashtrays. There was no interested in your cardboard coin containers. This doesn't necessarily mean they have no value. Have you considered listing them on eBay? Q: My wife has been an avid book collector all of her life. Now that we are retired, we are thinking of selling some of her collections but have no idea if they are worth anything. Two of the series we are especially interested in are early and first editions of the Nancy Drew series and early copies of the Motor Boys books published during the early 20th century. -- William, Port Orange, Fla. A: There were 22 volumes in the Motor Boys series, all published between 1906 and 1924. Most titles sell for about $5. Typical are "The Motor Boys in Mexico" (1906), "The Motor Boys Across the Plains" (1907), and "The Motor Boys on the Wing" (1912), all available at www.abe. com for less than $10. The first Nancy Drew book was "The Secret of the Old Clock," published in 1930 that featured 16-year-old Nancy searcling for a missing will to preventlthe Topham family from inheriting an estate they do not deserve. That first edition in excellent condi :ion and with cover often retails for about $300. To get a better idea of the value of your books, I recommend you purchase two excellent guides: "All About Collecting Girls' Series Books" and "All About Collecting Boys' Series Books," both by John Axe and published by Hobby House Books. They can be ordered through www. amazon .com. w** Q: Recently you answered a question about old records from a man named Steve in Binghamton, N.Y.
