On Friday, April 30, seventeen students from the Spencer Valley School took a tour of our beautiful Volcan Mountain. Led by local historian Ed Huffman and County Parks and Recreation official ranger, Beth Dirksen, the boys and girls learned of the early history of our region. The students were given an introduction near the valley where once early Native Americans lived and early pioneer settlements grew. A five car caravan and drivers then escorted the students from the Santa Ysabel East staging area up past the Hunter's Camp, recently purchased by the Volcan Mountain Preserve Foundation. On a nearby hidden outcropping the students hiked to an area where the ancient Kumeyaay Indians once lived and thrived. Beth Dirksen spoke about Kumeyaay diet, pottery, and land management. The Spencer Valley kids whose teachers include Lance Moles and Heidi Schlotfeldt, Gathering at the Staging Area students are greeted by Ed Huffrnan from the Julian Historical Society viewed breath taking vistas of The car caravan continued on the early pioneer trail where such to an overlook of Simmons Flat, groups as the Mormon Battalion named after an early pioneer marched through the San Felipe of the area. Once again, the Valley area. Students gathered group enjoyed beautiful, clouds around Mr. Huffman to hear of and blue sky along with a rich such notable figures as the scout documentation of the area Kit Carson, and Juan Baptiste overlooking Julian and the Charbonneau, son of the famous majestic Peninsular Mountain female lndian guide, Sacagawea. Range. After snacks, the Spencer Valley kids along with Jeff Holt and Kathleen Beck of the Volcan Mountain Executive Board, and Ran Granquist, volunteer docent, returned to Spencer Valley School where the students enjoyed a pizza lunch. A wonderful day of unique leaning from people who truely enjoyed their interaction with the student, and they had a great time too. (below) Ed Huffman point out Simmons Flat Kiki Skagen Harris, who has been writing a the "Back In The Day" column for this newspaper, came out of retirement from the U.S. State Department to serve in Iraq in 2006 as the Leader of a Provincial Reconstruction Team. This is one of a series of vignettes about daily life 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 December 11, 2006 - Vandemere, North Carolina--Green boughs, gold ribbon and white angels decorated the sanctuary of the United Methodist Church for its annual love feast. The warmth of the congregation spilled over the pews as people greeted one another with hugs and exclamations. Back in Baquba it's been a bad week. We lost five US and All writes, "1 just called Director General of Agriculture, Dr. Abass, to talk about the Erbil Ag. Conference, But he told me that his office driver and three other employees from his Ag. department got , kidnapped and killed today so and he was so sad about them. And I ! called DG of Vet. today too and he told me that insurgents attacked the Vet. clinic where his office there too and they killed one guard and one Vet. Dr. assistant and he closed his office and he is sitting at home because he said, '1 called the Gay. and the IP for help but no i one came' and now he is worried if they will steal all the equipments I too." Pastor Mike Roach read the Christmas story, interspersed with music from various members of the church and their friends. I wiped a tear, carefully drawing my finger along the lower eyelid to spare the eyeliner. When I was a child, we all understood that Uncle Eddie wouldn't talk about his experiences flying over Europe in WWII. War was traumatic and no one wanted to disturb him with questions. Doug Alvord played the organ as he recited a piece about Joseph and the Christmas story. The composition was one of Doug's own works. I cried throughout. Most of the time in Baquba we're not afraid. We laugh, and joke and work and freeze for a split second when there isa boom or a thud. "Incoming or outgoing?" The children sang Christmas favorite. Little Jonathan stared at the congregation through the songs, solemnly upholding his duty to be there in front of everyone's eyes. Mohammed, our local staff member, wrote, "The situation in Baquba is unbearable. Schools are still off. Most of the employees still don't go to their work fearing from the bad security situation. Clashes are everywhere. This morning there was a clash between US Army and gunmen in Tahrir. Helicopters were flying and from times to times start taking part in the clashes. I have seen smokes went up from a house near where I live after it got a hit by the helicopters." A couple sang a duet and Brenda Stilley recited an emotional poem about our boys in Iraq. Several watery eyes joined mine. When something actually happens, the adrenaline kicks in and fear is that last thing you think about. Craig Cooper, always a favorite, sang several songs. The flautist was terrific. Diana handed me a Kleenex. When the reality of war really hits is at home in normal surrou'ndings. '! After the service, the congregation repaired to the Church Hall for the usual wonderful food our Vandemere Methodists serve. A good time was had by all. i Overlook SURPRISING FACTS ABOUT YOUTH AND TOBACCO Nearly 80 percent of all smokers hove their first cigarette before age 18, and nearly 90 percent of all smokers begin before age 20. One-third of all smokers began before the age of 14. Twenty-seven percent of youths live in a household with at least one smoker. Nine times more youths who live with a smoker are exposed to daily secondhand smoke in a room and/or in a car than those who live in a nonsmoker household (40 percent versus 5 percent).
