Volume 25 - Issue 37 Wednesday April 28, 2010 Julian, CA. ISSN 1937-8416 Weather Cooperates For Earth Fair At Wynola Farmers Market Booths displaying organicgardening, including the Community Gardens, compost and worm bins. Fresh produce, as is available every Sunday, music and lots of fun distractions made the initial Earth Fair a success for organizers and folks who came by to check it out. A number of first-timers promised to return just for the Farmers Market, but stayed much of the afternoon enjoying the weather, educational opportunities and entertainment• The Wynola Ranch Marketplace hosted the event and according to Albert Lewis "we'll start planning for next year on Tuesday". Music On The Moqntain Two Guitars One Passion Tuesday May 4 - Nuevo Flamenco with Notas Antiguas by Perry Savage ,:. "; , : Few guitarists rise to the artistic brilliance of Warren La Plante. There's a reason for that - the price one pays in personal sacrifice is more than most people are willing to suffer. As so many starry - eyed youth have discovered, learning to play guitar is an enormous commitment. Really, it's a grind. For most, the hard reality sets in early - they will have to practice chords for years to sound anything like the heroes on their iPods. So they quit. For a very few who are driven by their talent and perseverance, the thousands of hours of isolated practice pays off. The rewards can be fame, unimaginable wealth and the intense adulation of their fans, but by then it's been a long and winding road and they've paid the handsome toll. No one who has trudged that hard road to virtuosity would ever want to have to do it again. Fortunately, that should never happen. Once a musician has developed the fine muscle memory of a master- once the firing patterns of their neurons have become hard wired for excellence, it's only about maintaining what they now already own. To be suddenly stripped of all of their hard earned talent, derived from years of never-ending practice, would be a fate to rival death itself. Where could someone find the will to do it all over again? Warren La Plante had to accept that fate and deal with it. He had already paid the price once - thousands of hours of practice - playing guitar in an empty room, heard by no one but himself• He deferred much of his youth to make his dream of becoming a professional musician a reality. Then came a near-fatal accident, causing massive injury to his body and brain• After coming out of a coma, he found himself devoid of all memory of his guitar virtuosity. He faced the near- impossible reality of having to start over. But somewhere from within, Warren found the will and did it. Through a long, slow recovery, Warren became an even more accomplished guitarist than prior to the accident that almost claimed his life. Warren La Plante, now 41, began playing guitar at age 12. That he was remarkably talented was clear, but equally as obvious was his discipline regarding his music. He never wavered from his commitment to his art, nor did he ever lose his focus - so easily done in youth. Warren practiced constantly, logging thousands of hours, expressing boundless devotion to his music and his instrument. It was clear Warren wanted music to be his career - it already was his life. His talent and work ethic led to his acceptance at the acclaimed Musician's Institute in Los Angeles. He studied in their coveted Guitar Institute of Technology (GIT) program, a springboard for many famous guitarist's careers.

Cauzza's name will now be memorialized on the high school baseball field to honor his many years of love, dedication and service to youth sports at the high school and within the community of Julian. The Julian Union High School District Governing Board voted to approve the dedication at its January 21st meeting. Preparations have been taking place to renovate the field area behind the football stadium in an effort to provide an onsite facility for the high school team who has been displaced to Jess Martin Park for several years. Community members donated their time including Kenny Mushet, Rick Moretti and student Auggie Moretti scraping, grading and hauling debris. Chris Cornette and his CalFire crew cleaned the grounds and painted the dugouts. JUHSD staff coordinated the inspection and installation of SDG&E meter, scoreboard service, location of water source, replacement of backstop netting, and lowering of the manhole cover in the outfield. Final infield preparations should be completed by the end of summer• All are invited to the dedication where a brief ceremony will take place followed by refreshments and a scrimmage by the Julian High School baseball team.
