10 The Julian News May 5, 2010 Historical Society Making Progress by David Lewis Generally speaking, when there is a party, most everyone wants to be there. But when you add the word work in front of the word party, people tend to get real scarce. Ask anyone who has served in a voluntary capacity, just how many of the people with the big ideas are around on work day. So April 20, 2010, served as a real gem in the annals of the term, "work party." Monday morning was to be the day we were to excavate and install new conduit between the Julian Historical Society's headquarters building and the Stage Line building. Ed Huffman, Brian Steutel, and David Lewis had previously laid out' the route and at 8:00am, they hit the ground running. The damp soil made the digging easy for David's new compact tractor. Ed followed along behind, cleaning the trench and keeping David from messing things up. In the mean time, Brian and his hired gun, Bruce, began to preassemble the conduit which they would put in place when enough trench was open. At ten o'clock, additional help was to arrive to backfill the ditch, and cut and break concrete for the connection point. Then, all of a sudden and on time, here comes the rest of the work party. What the...this can't be happening? Everyone who offered to help was there. And everyone who came, worked. Jim Baker, Pete Larson, and Dick Hobson pitched right in and everything just seemed to fall together. Breaking the concrete sidewalk turned into a real lesson in perseverance. An electric jack hammer run by Jim had to work full time while Bruce operated a tool that can make grown men whimper...a twelve pound hammer. John and Jan Mattias showed up with an offer to buy lunch, so it was with great urgency that the whole crew pitched in to vanquish the concrete slab. A job like this can turn sour when everyone gets tired, or there are too many ch s, but near the end of the day ya'fi' buld actually hear laughter coming from the bunch that were making the last conduit bends to the stage line building. It was a great day. We got a lot done, and when we were finished, you could hardly tell we had been there. There are many projects on the historical society's list of things to do. If you would like to be involved in something worthwhile to the community, please attend the next Julian Historical Society public presentation.

Salton Sea Symposium The Salton Sea is dying. Without bold, comprehensive action, our region faces an environmental, economic and legal disaster that will affect our region's quality of life for generations to come.
