Over 30 vintage racing machines will be lined up along Main Street from 2 until 5, at five o'clock they will recreate a LeMans start and head out to the Menghini Winery for the start of this years Julian Classic Motoring Show. The show which has been on hiatus the past two years was organized by Steve Sheppard with the financial backing of the Chamber of Commerce, the help of former organizer Bob Engberg and a committee of dedicated volunteers. This year's event is being held to benefit two local organizations: The Julian Community Health Foundation in their quest to build a new modern clinic for our community, and the Julian chapter of C.E.R.T. (Community Emergency Response Team). As of the last organizational meeting on Friday the 14th, 52 entries have committed to the show which is focusing on San Diego County racing, harking back to the day of the Julian Hill Climb which ran up the access road that cuts through the current Frank Lane Park (home of the Lion's Clubs Banjo Fiddle Contest every September) behind the volunteers fire station. The showcase on Saturday will be the racers lined up on Main Street, the road closed to traffic, when Grand Marshal Alan Girdler (former editor of Road & Track and Cycle World magazines) signals, drivers run across the street and jump in their cars, then "cruise" out to the winery behind a vintage 1940 Police Cruiser for a reception and diner. The Show itself will be Sunday from 10 until 3 and only a $5.00 admission to walk between all of the vehicles on display. There will be members of the Ferrari club and the Triumph club, a 1957 Maserati and the local San Diego vehicles raced or built here. "It should be a fun day for anyone who appreciates fine automobiles, race cars, or just some fresh air out on the grounds of the winery" says Sheppard. "This is a great event for the community to showcase itself." Julian Classic Motoring Show will feature a showcase of vehicles in town on Saturday with a "LeMans" style rally to the Winery at 5 o'clock. photo collage by Karen Osborne, MonkeyFeet Julian High Teacher of the Year: Cheryl (McColl) Bakken "What office is there which involves more responsibility, which requires more qualifications, and which ought, therefore, to be more honorable than teaching?"-- Harriet Martineau This year's 2009-2010 Julian Union High School District Teacher of the Year award goes to Mrs. Cheryl Bakken (formally McColl) for her dedication, enthusiasm, and commitment to education, her students, and the high school.

She currently teaches Computer Applications, ROP Graphic Arts, Yearbook, oversees on- line students, and is the District Technology Coordinator. Being a teacher is so much more than teaching, it is about caring for the students that you teach, believing that what you do does indeed make a difference, and helping students truly learn academic and life skills, Cheryl embodies all of these qualities. "Cheryl is invaluable to the district in her efforts to make sure our students have skills and knowledge of current technology so they are ready for what their future holds. The staff appreciates her efforts to find new and innovative technology tools to use in the classroom, with the support and training follow up to help assure we are using these tools to further our students' education. She is an important part of our wonderful staff at Julian Union High School, and we appreciate all she does for students and staff!" stated Julian High School's Principal Ms. Cara Couvillion Kern.

Using very distinct and beautiful pictures of the plants from the local mountains and surrounding areas, he will show you a way to indentify plants in the field by their family names and characteristics, "just as your own family shares common characteristics." Baby Blue Eyes, Blue-Eyed Grass, Blue Flag, Wild Iris, how does one tell the difference? We learn the names one season and the next season we have forgotten some of what we learned. This class will give helpful hints on how to resolve that problem. Williford will give the class with tips for identification. In this enthusiastic and informative presentation, participants will get a chance to learn about the characteristics of local plant families and how to use this knowledge for wild plant identification. Williford is currently a local State Park Interpreter for Cuyamaca Rancho and Palomar Mountain State Parks. He previously worked as a high school biology teacher and State Park Interpreter in Mendocino, California prior to relocating to Southern California. As an outdoor educator, Williford has taught at Camp Fox Outdoor School in Santa Ysabel. Conversing with Williford about native plants is pleasurable and informative without being overly scientific. It is obvious that he loves the study of plants and wants to share his knowledge. The presentation at the Julian Library will enhance your knowledge of the scenery while driving, hiking or walking around Julian, Santa Ysabel, Wynola, Lake Cuyamaca, Anza-Borrego and Palomar and the other state and local parks. Williford will make local botany come alive in a learning-friendly environment. Come spend an hour with him on Saturday, May 22 at 1 PM, in the library's community room and from what you learn, you will be able to enjoy the natural scenery even more. Join us as we fulfill the library's mission to inform, educate and inspire its users. For more information, call the Julian Branch at (760) 765-0370.
