ISSN 1937-8416 Three Days Of Music Fiddle Camp Expands With More Concerts Last year Julian experienced the inauguration of the Julian Family Fiddle Camp. In addition to bringing over eighty folks to town for the purpose of learning, playing and enjoying old-time fiddle and mandolin music, the camp held public concerts that allowed the community to hear artists of a caliber that are, to be sure, rarely heard in our area. Specifically, for those who were lucky enough to catch them, Evan Marshall, one of the planet's truly great mandolin virtuosos (and stand-up comic), and Calvin Vollrath, a North American Grand Fiddle Master, both taught at the camp, and gave separate public concerts. Many consider the camp - and its evening concerts - to be a musical benchmark for the town, and for those who missed (or came to) the 2011 camp or concerts, there's good news. They're back! Yep, Evan Marshall and Calvin Vollrath will be in town again this week as return instructors and performers at the 2012 Julian Family Fiddle Camp and, given the camp's addition of guitar Evan Marshall, Scott Gates and Calvin Vollrath Tyler Grant - Thursday evening at Camp Cedar Glen instruction this year, they will be joined by none less than guitarist and National Flat-pick Champion, Tyler Grant. Whereas Evan Marshall and Calvin Vollrath are uncommon visitors to our area, Tyler Grant is no stranger to Julian. Indeed, he has family. and roots in the San Diego area, and like many acoustic string musicians, has fond recall of youthful visits to our The Julian Family Fiddle Camp commences this Wednesday at Camp Cedar Glen, with Tyler Grant performing for the public on Thursday, April 12th, Evan Marshall on Friday, April 13th, and Calvin Vollrath on Saturday, April 14th. The public performances begin at 7:00 PM at Camerer Hall at Camp Cedar Glen, with tickets available ($20 per adult, children under 12 are free) after 6:30 PM on a first-come, first-serve basis only. Last year's concerts were standing room only, so don't miss out.t Congressional Candidates Forum At Town Hall Four candidates for the new 50th District for the House of Representatives answered questions from around a dozen Julian residents at the Town Hall Wednesday night, April 4. Michael Benoit, Libertarian, Connie Frankowiak, Democrat, David Secor, Democrat, and Terri Linnell, Republican held the state for an hour and a half. The current incumbent, Duncan Hunter, Jr., did not attend. In answering questions ranging from the economy to Foreign Policy to the Constitution the candidates showed remarkable agreement on a number of issues. They were all unhappy with the way Congress currently conducts business, with giant corporations and their power, with the role of money in politics and with the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. Predictably, they disagreed on economics and the role of government in the country with views ranging from a "balanced budget" no matter what (Terri Linnell) to "Medicare for All" (David Secor). No questions were asked about women's reproductive rights or gay marriage. District 50, redrawn since the last elections, contains part or" Escondido and most of rural North and Northeast San Diego County, including all of Julian, Borrego, and Ramona. It also includes part of Temecula. The new voting law mandates that the top two candidates in the Primary Elections, regardless of party, will appear on the November ballot. Another forum will be held in Ramona on Wednesday, April 11. Duncan Hunter will not be able to attend that forum either. "He has so much money hedoesn't need to spend time on us out here in the Back Country," one audience member remarked.

According to the County Medical Examiner's Office, between 2006 and 2011, 144 minors age 20 and younger died in San Diego County with alcohol in their system--an average of 28 per year. Julian is no exception. According to the California Healthy Kids Survey (2011), 39% of Julian's 11th grade teens report that they have been drunk or sick from drinking alcohol. Getting sick is a sign of alcohol poisoning when the body tries to expel the alcohol that it cannot process. Underage drinking is dangerous and creates a major public health problem. Youth who drink alcohol are more likely to experience: problems in school, unwanted, unplanned, and unprotected sex, memory problems, higher risk for suicide and homioide, car crashes, violence, property damage, legal problems, physical and mental abuse, and abuse of other drugs. Youth who begin drinking before age 15 are 4 times more likely to become dependent on alcohol than those who wait until age 21, the legal drinking age. Although it is illegal to sell or give alcohol to minors, teens do not have a hard time getting it, and they often get it from adults. In fact, 70% of local 9th graders report that alcohol is "very easy" or "fairly easy" to get. (CHKS 2011) So what can we do? First, we must stop enabling and ignoring youth drinking. As parents, business owners, school teachers and administrators, law enforcement, religious leaders, civic organizations, youth, and community members, we must work together in partnership to change the environmental influences surrounding our young people We must reduce youth access to alcohol through both retail and social sources, and chaage the norm in our community that , ,. ,l;. underagedrinking is okay or evefPexpected. Underage drinking is NOT a "rite of passage." On Tuesday, April 17th from 6pm to 8pm, you are invited to Julian's Town Hall Forum to Prevent Underage Drinking. This important community discussion will be hosted by EPIC (Education and Prevention In our Community) youth coalition and Drug Free Julian community coalition. Please join us for 2 hours of productive dialog. Hear from our teens about how they view underage drinking. Identify the factors that contribute to underage drinking in Julian like how youth get alcohol and when and where youth drink. Learn more about San Diego County's Social Host Ordinance and adult accountability when teens drink. Together we can influence long term, sustainable change. If you have any questions about this event, please contact Jean Duffy, Drug Free Julian Coordinator, jean.duffy@eccasa. org, (760)765-2228 or join us at our next coalition meeting at 6pm Thursday, April 12th at the Julian Library.

Chris Clarke and Plow will share their special blend of sounds from Americana Heritage Music at the festival's kick off party, May 4 at the Wynola Marketplace and Grand Canyon Sundown will play their unique blend of American country blues and rolling folk rock at the Saturday festival bash on May 5 at Town Hall. When Acoustic musicians find synergy, its special. When the result of that synergy is unexpected, with improvised twists and turns, the ride is exciting, amusing and ultimately satisfying. Plow is the result of three men finding common musical ground, then deciding to break new ground bringing their own personal and shared musical expressions to listeners. "These guys sounded great playing on my live radio show from the first note to the last. A very original and entertaining band", said Wayne Rice of their appearance on his bluegrass special show on KSON 97.3. They will surely set just the right tone for a weekend of inspiring and beautiful films!
