That Is Night... by Holly Tuomi The darkness of day, the light the night brings To my cluttered mind. A willow dream of rest sways like the end of time As I Chase away the thoughts that rot my brain. I dreamt of a place far beyond this mountain A place of calm serenity. That doesn't exist. When I awoke I listened to my head As it reel played images Of something dead. It was the night of living only giving Back what was once destroyed Like the burning of joy. This dream did haunt me only Taunting, only taunting. It could not be It would not see the light Of night. The day burns black, like rotting flesh, Deteriorating what was once beautiful What was once tranquil rest. I fear the day, the morning It gives people artificial hope, artificial light, "The real keeper of happiness is night. If the morning comes, it comes too soon. It spills into every corner of every room, But it always fades, always. So how can this dream of darkness Once deferred Be happier than a stream of light Which is preferred. The day robs the mind of reality, only taking The stressful endeavors away, making night The real comfort, the real alright. It is night that allows for reality, a distant brush of personality, It is night that knows the real me, the one that hates the day, Keeping me is night, always safe, morning at bay, It allows for the dream to manifest man's destiny, It allows man to dream of manifesting rest for you, for me. So who is to say that day is bright And unlike peace Makes room for a better way To live That is night. Come See the kids from Elementary, Junior High and High School display their talents. Wednesday, April 28th at 6pm in the High School Multipurpose Room. There will be Hot Dogs and Chips and Sodas/Water along with a Bake Sale, so come hungry. Thoughts by Michele Harvey Yes, I'm Getting Older My aunt told me that when I turned 40, my body would begin softening, and then gravity would take hold. I was in my mid 30s at the time, nearly 60 now; and boy, was she right! Before we turn 30, gaining and losing a few pounds isn't usually a big deal. We over eat throughout the weekend, gain two or three pounds, then on Monday we fast or eat only healthy foods and the weight comes off. Our skin tightens and we look good. After 30, our bodies don't go back into original positions anymore. Stretched stays stretched. Pounds tend to stay on. Pounds are definitely more difficult to drop. Gaining and losing weight over and over isn't healthy. What few of us know is what our bodies will look like when our weight goes up and down, over and over. Arms get saggy. That's one obvious sign of losing weight. Butts get saggy too. I know lots of women who lose weight and then look at their backsides and say "Where did it go?" It's still there, it just turns mushy. Try sitting on a hard surface and feel the mush. Butts tend to rearrange themselves when they deflate, and not in any way we might expect. When rve gained or lost more than a few pounds my feet change size. Lots of women keep several sets of clothes in their closets so they will have something to wear when they gain or lose weight. I've done it for years. But changes in shoe size? Yes, it happens, so keeping several sizes of shoes is a good idea too if weight comes and goes. One thing that fascinates me when I lose weight is that my arms don't seem to know where they belong when I walk. When I'm overweight my arms tend to stick out to the side because I'm wider. When I get narrower; my arms have to be told they can come closer to my body. Arthritis sets in at odd places. My former mother-in-law used to say that she slept with two men... Ben Gay and Arthur Ite Iss. No joke. Injuries that are long forgotten remind us that they happened by the settling in of Arthritis in the joint either above or below the injury that probably healed many years ago. The middle joint of the index finger on my right hand some times gets a severe pain in it. This has been happening for a few years now. I know that arthritis can form in joints near or at a point of injury. I look at my index finger and ask it what I did to it that I didn't do to my other finger joints. Getting older can mean less mobility. It can mean skin that tears easily. It can mean that getting out of bed in the morning may hurt more than going to bed at night. Exercise and good eating habits can help put' off the problems of growing old. Drinking plenty of water keeps skin hydrated; proper eating habits including lots of fruits, grains and vegetables keeps our body's immune systems healthy and physical exercise keeps circulation strong which sends plenty of oxygen to the brain and keeps the brain in good working order. Drinking lots of water after dinner and before bedtime helps keep weight off and as some of my friends agree; we get exercise throughout the night walking to and from the bathroom. I once wrote a paper for an exercise class about living long and living healthy. I've known people who were heavy smokers or heavy drinkers, who had an attitude of no caring whether or not they were going to die a year or two early because of the abuse they put their bodies through. The point isn't whether we die younger; the real important point is the quality of life. Taking care of our bodies will give us a better quality of life right up to our death. As I get older; I look forward to wearing Bifocals, walking with a cane and wearing sensible shoes. My, my; won't I look distinguished. These are my thoughts. Operation Eagle A Very Successful Thank You You may remember my letter to the editor a while ago, asking for support from the residents of Julian for my Eagle Project. I had the lofty goal of hosting a free fishing day for 200 San Diego county military fathers and children. In short, the event was a resounding success - everyone seemed to enjoy themselves and everything went along smoothly. April 3rd has come and gone, but the lives of many have been positively affected forever thanks to the help from everyone who helped me in my endeavor. Being relatively new at event planning and logistics, naturally I was a little stressed. Thankfully, Henry Hall was invaluable in his support in mentoring me. The night before the event, I was on pins and needles, turning over everything that could go wrong in my mind. All of which, were unfounded. Everyone showed up on time, and my first-rate support from Troop 690 proved to be worth their weight in gold. The entire event from start to finish slid along without a major hitch. I received countless compliments on the event, and if l could pass them along to everyone who was of service to me, I certainly would. This event would not have been possible without their limitless support. Since our local boy scout troop is sponsored by The American Legion Post 468, It goes without saying they deserve quite a bit of credit. Originally, they had agreed to provide food for the event. Little did they know they would end up providing much more than that. Post commander Charles "Dusty" Keane was more than accommodating when I asked for the use of the Legion's barbecue at the last minute, or the use of eight picnic tables. Not only did he provide me the materials I needed, but also invaluable advice and insight for event coordinating. My hat is off to the Legion in their continuing by Justin Van Bibber : ,, , 2: [ " efforts to better the community through their support. The Legion wasn't the only third party to extend their support to my cause. The list grew rather long. EDL Construction, Barnacle Bill's Tackle, Lake Cuyamaca, The Mataguay Scout Ranch, A16 sporting goods, The San Diego Armed Services YMCA, and The Heartland Lion's Club all pledged their support to me. Without the YMCA, there would have been no event. They spread the invitation to the military, and within a few short days, all 200 slots had been filled. The fact that all 200 showed up to the event still amazes me. Needless to say, Brittany Catton and Katie Desbois of the ASYMCA, with all their logistical prowess, deserve a ton of credit for pulling this off. Lastly, but certainly not least, I want to thank you, Julian. I was stunned at the outpouring of support from the community More than a month ago, I placed an article in the paper asking for funds, but I didn't expect s much support as I received. From letters of encouragement to money, It seemed like everyone was willing to give in whatever way they could. The most touching were the letters from former scouts who never made it to Eagle Scout. They all wished me the best and encouraged me to never give up, to strive for scouting's highest honor. With the success of this project, I am nearing the top, just a few more steps to the finish - Eagle Scout. It feels as though "thank you" is inadequate, but please accept my immense feelings of gratitude for your support. I couldn't have done it without you, Julian, and I am eternally grateful for your assistance.

I found many things people do with their time I had no Idea of, I have enjoyed learning from them as I hope you have from my articles. Coming in June my class of 2010 will be graduating. We will be walking across the bridge from adolescence to adulthood. Although many of us are scared and fear being alone, it is in this that we are all together. When we go out there onto the graduation platform for many of us it will be the last time we see each other. Some of us have known one another our whole lives, and now we are taking the next step. This is the step that will take us to our new lives, new friends, and new places. Unfortunately this will be the last article of Michael Vile one on one I will be writing. The time has come for me to take my next step. After graduating from high school in June I plan on attending Grossmont Community College for Administration of Justice program. While attending college I hope to be attending a personal trainer course on the weekends. I very much hope that I will be writing articles in the future for our community Newspaper. I have enjoyed every minute of writing for our small town of Julian. I have learned loads of new things about people I thought I already knew. Too everyone who has read my articles in the past months thank you so much for this opportunity to show you the bright light of Julian High School. I hope that some day another student will keep up an article as I have. Thank you for being my step. Michael Vile k
