ISSN 1937-8416 County Wide Di a ter Drill This Saturday Julian/Cuyamaca CERT- Teen CERT Hosting Event At Julian High School If you missed Easters big quake then you'll have an opportunity to see how the community will respond this weekend as the CERT Council, sponsored by the San Diego County Office of Emergency Services (OES) has selected Julian as the site for a Countywide CERT training exercise to be held April 17, 2010, at Julian High School. Julian-CuyamacaCERT/TEEN CERT will host 29 San Diego County CERT units during this allday countywide disaster simulation exercise, open to all CERT members. This year's training exercise will focus largely on earthquake preparedness and understanding earthquakes. Training stations incorporating overall disaster preparedness, fire safety, medical operations,, light search and rescue and communications will be set up for CERT organizations to participate in. The big draws for the event is the "Earthquake Preparedness -- Understanding Earthquakes" station. An earthquake simulator will be set up for participants. "It's a trailer that simulates the actual experience of being in an earthquake," says Diane Hake, CERT Coordinator for Julian. "It starts at a 3.5 and ends at a 7.0, and goes by really quickly." Diane continued; "We will divide people up among the different stations for the training exercise, so everyone will get a chance to do everything." Four BullEx Hot Shot fire extinguisher video training simulators will also be part of the training participants receive. Members of the Burn Institute, U.S. Department of Homeland Security, the county of San Diego Office of Emergency Services, Julian/Cuyamaca, Poway, Escondido and Valley Center fire departments, Julian Lions Club and Julian Medical Clinic, and the Julian Fire Safe Council, as well as other emergency preparedness groups, will be participating. More than 180 residents of Julian, Shelter Valley and Canebrake have become CERT members. Countywide, there are more than 5,000 trained CERT members in 29 CERT units. Julian has also graduated more than 60 teenagers from the Teen CERT program, the only program of its kind in San Diego county. Fundraising efforts to support CERT /TEEN CERT Julian Cuyamaca will include Julian Lions Club members grilling hamburgers and donating all profits to the CERT/Teen CERT program of Julian Cuyamaca for those who wish to purchase a hot meal, a Julian pie (Angel's Landing is making pies) and coffee booth provided by TEEN CERT, an Ask the Mechanic Booth manned by an ASE- certified mechanic Joe Young, and a raffle at noon and 3:45 p.m. Winners need to be present to win. Jeremy's on the Hill, a Wynola restaurant, and downtown Julian's The Candied Apple Pastry Company will provide box lunches for CERT members assisting in the day's events. Live music and drawings will be part of the fun. McGruff the crime dog and Smokey Bear will be on hand. Stasia Place Richardson, coordinator for the San Diego Office of Emergency Services, states "there has been an unprecedented response from the 29 countywide CERT programs in San Diego County to participate in the training simulations." Many of these communities will be available to answer questions and offer information on becoming a CERT member.. A non-profit organization, CERT/TEEN CERT Julian- Cuyamaca is one of the newest communities to join the nationwide CERT program and the only active TEEN CERT program in San Diego County, with 60 teens. The response to CERT programs held in Julian has been very strong, given the substantial loss of homes during the 2003 Cedar fire. Julian residents experienced the reality of a major disaster when police and fire agency resources were overwhelmed and unable to respond to everyone. Residents realized the need to become selfsufficient and respond to basic emergency disaster needs - the very thrust of the CERT program. CERT/TEEN CERT Julian Cuyamaca currently has 180 adult members, not including 46 students in the current CERT Academy. CERT Julian was founded by Julian residents Johnny and Diane Hake, who received their basic CERT training in 2005 and their Train-the-Trainers (TTT) training in early 2009. The Hakes, upon completir, their TTT, held their first CERT Academy a month later with the assistance of Julian-Cuyamaca Fire Protection District Fire Chief Kevin Dubler. The Julian- Cuyamaca Fire Protection District, sponsors CERT/TEEN CERT Julian Cuyamaca, and Chief Dubler has provided training assistance for all Julian- Cuyamaca CERT members, as well as the 36 recent CERT graduates in Canebrake and Shelter Valley. Captain Steve Sheppard provided training for the 60 TEEN CERTS. The Hakes are no strangers to helping in times of great need. They, along with other Julian residents, opened the Julian Resource Center after the Cedar Fire and were instrumental in helping hundreds of Julian residents get back on their feet, providing clothes, food, construction assistance and money. The Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Program educates people about disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact their area and trains them in basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations. Using the training learned in the classroom and during exercises, CERT members can assist others in their neighborhood or workplace following an event when professional responders are not immediately available to help. CERT members also are encouraged to support emergency response agencies by taking a more active role in emergency preparedness projects in their community. The Community Emergency Response Team concept was developed and implemented by the Los Angeles City Fire Department (LAFD)in 1985. The Whittier Narrows earthquake in 1987 underscored the area- continued on page 3 Julian, CA, 92036 Change Service Requested Ihl,,h,l,,,,ll,,ll,,ll,,,,,ll,,hlll,,,h,h,,hhlh,,h,II Small Town Papers TFN 5026 California Ave SW Seattle WA 98136-1208 SAL To Sponsor "Breakfast For Books' With the current economic crisis, our states budget cuts, and a general lack of funds for education. Our High School does not have miney available to give our syudents the basic need of new text books for the furthering of their education. The current text books are out dated, falling apart and in poor condition. The Sons of the American Legion have generously, stepped forward to host a benefit breakfast, Sunday May 2nd from 7 am to 11:30 at the American Legion Hall. Where else can you get eggs, pancakes, sausage, corned beef hash, home fries, biscuits and gravey, juice and coffe for only seven bucks. As with all benefit breakfasts, all of the proceeds will go directly to the beneficiary, in the this case text books for the High School. This is an opportunity for all of us in the community (and the few visitors who drop in) to get a great breakfast and at the same time help the High School better prepare our children for the future with new text books. Students and SAL members will have tickets for sale before May 2nd and you are encouraged to pick up a pair or more, this helps the SAL gauge the number of breakfasts that they will be serving. To Yosemite And Beyond: Following In John Muir's Footsteps Presentation At Library April 17, 1 O'Clock by Laurel Granquist "1 have seen persons of emotional temperament stand with tearful eyes, spellbound and dumb with awe, as they got their first view of the Valley from Inspiration Point, overwhelmed in the sudden presence of the unspeakable, stupendous grandeur." - Galen Clark, guardian of the Yosemite Grant. If you have been to Yosemite, you will love revisiting it with Julian resident, Bob Engberg, who, with his wife, Sherry, has hiked all over Yosemite in the footsteps of John Muir. Bob will present a fascinating program about this national treasure at the Julian Library on Saturday, April 17, at 1:00 pm. Engberg and his writing partners have done extensive research on John Muir, including reading Muir's books and journals. They have traveled to the areas mentioned in Muir's books, and have edited three books on Muir. These studies will be shared in Engberg's illustrated presentation on April 17. His books are available at the Julian Library. With the travel and hiking season approaching, attending Bob Engberg's program will inspire you to go to the Sierras to hike or just enjoy the truly majestic scenery. At night there are few outside lights (to reduce light pollution) which enables visitors to see the stars and constellations shining down in all their glory. U-shaped Yosemite Valley, carved out by ancient glaciers, affords views of Half Dome, El Capitan, and Yosemite Falls, which is the tallest waterfall in North America. Yosemite is also home to twenty mountains that exceed 12,000 feet elevation. The Giant Sequoias are the world's largest living trees. It is hard to find the words adequte to describe Yosemite's spectacular beauty, dramatic vistas, meadows, and geological formations. Fortunately, we will have Bob Engberg and his wife, Sherry, to take us through Yosemite and beyond, as we explore the life and legend of John Muir. Efforts to protect Yosemite Valley go back as far as 1864, when President Abraham Lincoln signed a bill granting Yosemite Valley and the Mariposa grove of Giant Sequoias to the State of California and an inalienable public trust. That was the first time in history that a federal government had set aside scenic lands to protect and allow enjoyment by all people. John Muir helped spark the creation of Yosemite National Park in 1890. "Sundown, and I must to camp go. Good-night, friends three - John Muir brown bear, rugged boulder of energy in groves and gardens fair as Eden; restless, fussy fly with gauzy wings stirring the air around all the world; and grasshopper, crisp, electric spark of joy enlivening the massy sublimity of the mountains like the laugh of a child. Thank you, thank you all three for your quickening company. Heaven guide every wing and leg. Good- night friends three, good-night." - John Muir during an evening in Yosemite, My First Summer in the Sierra. Bob Engberg taught history at La Jolla Middle School and Mission Bay High School, and was a faculty consultant and reader in AP US History and AP Art History from 1994 until his retirement in 2004. He taught for 38 years and is a Mentor Emeritus of the San Diego Unified School District. He received his undergraduate degree in history continued on page 3 Eagles Spring Athletics Baseball - Thu 04/15/10 @Calipatria High School 3:30PM Tue 04/20/10 Mountain Empire High School Jess Martin Park 3:30PM Softball - Thu 04/15/10 @ Calipatria High School 3:30PM Tue 04/20/10 Warner High School 3:30PM Thu 04/22/10 @ San Pasqual Academy 3:30PM Track and Field - Sat 04/17/10 @ Valley Center Invite Valley Center High School 8:00AM Golf - Wed 04/28110 @ Escondido Adventist TBA Fri 04130110 Calipatria High School TBA Julian Eagles Winter Sports Southern Conference And Citrus East All-League Teams: Girl's Basketball: 1st Team: Rowlynda Moretti 2nd Team: Hannah EIliott Boys' Basketball: 1st Team: Andrej Dominguez & Ryan Monroe 2nd Team: Seth Tunnell Boys' Soccer: 1st Team: Oswaldo Abarca & Miguel Hinojosa 2nd Team: Alberto Hinojosa, Giovanny Santorumn & Josh Savage Girls' Soccer: 1st Team: Charlie Beatty & Itxaso Abaurrea-Aragones 2nd Team: Taylor Crippen, Aracely Abarca & Lonna Kelly Southern Conference ~ Citrus East ~ Athlete of the Year for Girls' Soccer: Itxaso Abaurrea- Aragones The above Julian athletes went up and above the call of duty outdoing themselves!
