Prioe edueed to 45,000 ,1 County Wide CERT Drill continued from page 1 approximately 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Julian High School, 1656 Highway 78 in Julian. The CERT program requires volunteers to complete 24 hours of basic disaster skills training to help residents protect themselves and their community in an emergency. The multi-purpose room at the high school served as a classroom The exercise involved 24 of the County's 30 CERT programs throughout the County who experienced shaking in an earthquake simulator and learned about how earthquakes occur, practiced fire suppression, emergency communications, triage and medical aid skills, and search and rescue of mock victims. The Julian Cuyamaca ...... CERT is one of the newest Earthquake simulator communities to join the County's CERT program, and the TEEN CERT is the only currently active TEEN CERT group in the County. "The TEEN CERT program is the same program as the Adult CERT program; they are learning the same skills. They are very helpful, especially if we had an emergency during the school day, "said Diane Hake, CERT/TEEN CERT Julian Cuyamaca program manager and instructor. "1 would encourage people to look up their own community CERT program. It's really important." Residents interested in learning more about CERT can visit www. A raffle raised funds to help offset the costs of the event. Dance Art, A Community Project Entries for the Art Contest sponsored by the Sons of the American Legion tripled this year. The contest was started three years ago as a way of involving our artistic community in the largest fundraiser in Julian. It has come a long way. The initial contest drew eight entries, but due to the commitment of the Sons to use a contest entry as the logo for "The Dance", a local high school student won the prize. There is an intangible that makes for a winning entry, but reading the rules and following the theme is key to making the finals. Here is what happens. A committee of six members of SAL, a member of the Legion and a member of the Auxiliary meet the evening after the entries are due. After a disinterested party reviews the entry forms for accuracy and completeness and making sure all the numbers on the entry and the artwork are correct, the art is turned over to the committee. This process insures that the entries are anonymous. The artwork is laid out on tables in groups of six to eight entries. This process quickly eliminates work that is completely off topic or doesn't quite rise to the level of the standard of presentation for "The Dance". Not surprisingly, a lot of work is passed along at this stage with the thought that, "It might make a great logo", with the additional info that gets added on posters and advertising media. This process happens over and over until eight to ten selections are made to present to the general membership of the next SAL meeting. The meeting to select the winner is one of the best attended of the year. After dispensing with the normal course of SAL business, the fun begins as all the rejected entries are displayed for the membership. If there is a bloc of members who feel one of the rejected entries should be included in the finals, it is added for further consideration along with the art selected by the committee. At this point the finalists work is uncovered and displayed.

This is one of a series of vignettes about daily fife on a US military base Kiki wrote while she was in Baquba, Iraq. This is an ongoing series, presented in diary form. Life During War Time by Kiki Skagen-Harris November 01, 2006 - The British had the War of the Roses. The British and Spaniards fought the War of Jenkins' Ear. The Diyala Provincial Reconstruction Team has the War of the Gardens. There are two, the US Army Corps of Engineers' Garden and Armand's Arboretum. The USACE garden is, as you'd expect, well engineered. Blades of grass struggle up through clay in chest high Hescos. This makes it easier to cut. With scissors, most likely, since there isn't enough grass for a lawn mower, even if you wanted to lift a lawn mower onto a chest high Hesco. There are also several beds with wooden sides that have real plants in them. I think they will be nasturtiums. Both of them. Armand's garden is more modest. It's made of two backless plywood bookcases, put on their sides and filled with dirt. Armand's garden sports several plants. One dirt filled bookshelf has two plants that look as if they will eventually be okra. Two more bookshelves (there are six altogether) have what Armand calls herbs. I call them weeds but that is perhaps unkind. Armand's garden was featured in the Washington Post. The reporter was entranced by it even though there were no plants at the time. She couldn't stop laughing. This is not the first attempt at gardening by our PRT. I planted some vegetables in pots (previously owned tin cans) arrayed outside the door of my CHU. The only thing that grew well, alas, was alkali salts which came up quite promptly and increased in size every time I watered. Once in a while a dead seed would work its way to the surface. This was not, by most measures, a very successful garden. Over the berms that surround our FOB, Iraqi farmers grow real crops, but we are on Baquba's former air field and the soil isn't very good. By Mayor Khaled's office, which is in an upscale Baquba neighborhood, gardens are full of bougainvillea, hibiscus, palm trees, and what I fondly remember from my Southern California childhood as "stinkweed"--a bush with small pink and orange and yellow flowers sporting a pungent smell. The current thinking in the PRT is to buy some bougainvillea in tubs to augment our home grown crops--but only after we have a beauty contest and decide the winner of the Garden War. left - Shaunae Bullock above - Amanda Vile committee member holds an entry, as he or she explains why it was selected and it's virtues or drawbacks in becoming the logo for "The Dance". Democracy in action. The membership is polled and about half the work is rejected. This is where the real fun begins. Another raucous vote reduces the entries to three. The "three are walked around the room, a vote occurs and two are selected. The final vote, with a show of hands and loud vocal accompaniment selects the work that will become the standard bearer for the fourth annual installment of "The Dance". The winner is called and given a rousing huzzah by the Sons. The Son's work starts that night, editing happens the next day and posters should hit the streets this week. All the work will be mounted and displayed at the Library and Rabo Bank before moving to the site of "The Dance" on June 5th. All the artwork is then auctioned off with the funds staying right here in Julian to help fund the charitable causes of the Sons. All artists are invited to the booth to sign their work. Even though they might not have won the contest, they are all winners in the selfless way they have contributed to their community. The Sons thank-you.
