When the sun came out, the snow melted and was all gone by noon. Days were very cold. It rained on the fifth day - half an inch in my gauge. It rained again the twelfth day - three quarters of an inch. Stormy weather continued the next few days. On the 21st day, it snowed off and on but did not accumulate. On the 22nd, we received four inches of snow. Rest of the day were rainy, windy and very cold. There was much frost on the last day of the month, with 30 degree temperatures in the early morning. Very few nice days. 2. My hummingbirds showed up on the seventh day. I am glad to have them back. 3. In spite of the stormy weather all month, we have enjoyed the beauty of all the fruit trees in full bloom. One house in town has five different fruit trees and the lovely assortment of blossoms were a sight to behold. What makes the colorful fruit trees stand out is the many evergreens surrounding them. 4. The lovely daffodils that graced our area gradually faded out and soon the lilacs opened up all over. The two miles I travel into town there are many lilac bushes. I had a lovely one but it was destroyed in the Cedar fire and I have not replaced it yet. I plan to soon when it's warm enough to work outdoors. 5. After the Easter Spring break, tourist traffic had dropped off considerably. Most tourists are heading eastward to the desert. 6. We are looking forward to the lovely month of May and hope we'll have warmer weather to enjoy. *** I AM GLAD I LIVE IN JULIAN *** Julian public on the future plans for an "Interpretive" Center at the Santa Ysabel Nature Preserve. The meeting was called so the county and their planners could assess the communities desires for the planning of the facility, including its' placement on the site - a parcel adjacent to the Post Office building in Santa Ysabel - the style of the structure(s) and the various building components that would be constructed. A presentation by Architect Allison Whitelaw showed numerous projects around the world that could be considered as a basis for the design, although she stressed that nothing had as yet been put to paper. The total project which will be dependant on a successful Proposition 84 grant application is estimated to be in the five to seven million dollar range. It is to be funded through the County Parks and Recreation Department. This initial meeting was more a presentation of the project to the community so that County planners could then begin the process of preparing the grant application. There are more meetings to be scheduled to further define the project and the specifics of the building design, it's location on the site and the ac :ess required for the best presentation to the general public. The Volcan Mountain Preserve Foundation and the Nature Conservancy are active partners in the center although it will be a County Parks and Recreation operated facility. Although no firm date was set for the next meeting with the public. The 40 or so in attendance were assured that they would be kept up dated on plans and progress.

Dudley's Bakery Appoints New Product Development Specialist Dudley's Bakery, an independent family-owned operation for more than 47 years, has announced the appointment of Kristen Coniaris to the newly created role of New Product Development Specialist. Coniaris, who holds a Professional Chef's Degree from the Cambridge School of Culinary Arts, a Bachelor of Art from Boston University, and is currently enrolled in AIB International for a degree in Food Science & Technology, joins Dudley's with extensive high quality creative bakery industry product experience. She is the chef owner and founder of Wicked Goodies, a specialty sculpted and wedding cake business in San Diego, and works as a chef instructor of baking and cake decorating at Palomar College and Ro Z's Sweet Art Studio in Mira Mesa. Previously, she was the Director of Research & Product Development at Posh Pantry, Inc. based in Poway, California, and was the Executive Pastry Chef of Biga Breads, Inc. in Charlestown, Massachusetts. 'Tm happy to be on board with Dudley's and hope to bring success to its fine brand," Coniaris said. "My goals with Dudley's are to increase manufacturing and distribution capabilities, raise brand name recognition, and expand the product line into the realm of cookies and pastries. I think we will accomplish a lot as a team." Coniaris will report to Barry Brunye, one of the owners of Dudley's Bakery. Talking about the new role, Brunye said: "New Product Development is a key Kristen Coniaris area for Dudley's," said Brunye. "Under Coniaris' leadership, we plan to introduce various new products, all building on Dudley's long history of high quality creative baked goods. "Our customers appreciate the uniqueness of items available at Dudley's. We want to continue that tradition and want to offer even more creative high quality goods than ever before. We often have items available for testing up here at the bakery. Customer feedback is key if they don't associate our new items with the nostalgia of Dudley's, we haven't met our goals. A great example of a successful new product is our Jalepeno Cheese bread we added it in the last three years, but people will swear they had it 10-plus years ago. We've had the Baja Jalepeno around a lot longer, but the Jalepeno Cheese bread is one of our top sellers now. "We are excited with the ideas Kristen brings to the table, and her eagerness to create the same high-quality products we're known for," said Brunye. *** I got the blues thinking of the future, so I left offand made some marmalade. It's amazing how it cheers one up to shred oranges and scrub the floor. -- D.H. Lawrence
