The troupe was performing at the Tribal Fest 10 in Sebastopol. Five Julian dwellers took their vintage trailers and trailed on up to Pismo Beach for a vintage trailer rally.

Noteworthy Duo continued from paage 1 a solo artist, but as fortune would have it, he had decided to branch out and was looking to collaborate with a flutist. When Lisa contacted Michael about forming a duo, he expressed an interest. They began playing together, experimenting with their sound while sharing their enthusiasm for South American music. Artistically, they complemented each other quite well and a satisfying professional relationship developed with ease. "We feed off each other when we try out new music, if one of us loves it or hates it, usually the other feels the same way," Lisa said. Music critics and reviewers have lavished well-deserved praise on the duo. In reviewing their CD, "Between Flute and Guitar", The Flutist Quarterly wrote "...they have crafted a lovely CD that music lovers of all kinds will enjoy...The strong connection between duo members is apparent, as much of this music requires tremendous ........................ flexibility in tempos, mood, and color, executed beautifully overall..." A reviewer of their recent performance at UCLA wrote, "Individually, Nigro and Schroeder are accomplished, dynamic musicians at the top of their game. Together, they created a gorgeous, seamless sound, completely at ease with their music and audience." The duo especially enjoys playing at libraries, where their audiences fully appreciate Michael and Lisa's commentaries on the composers and the works they perform. They strive to engage their listeners, serving up historical details that make the music come alive. Lisa Schroeder grew up in Middle America; in the small town of Dundee, Michigan. Her parents were not professional musicians (her father had played in a rock band in high school), but Lisa's older sister, Laurie, took up the saxophone. By age nine, Lisa found herself drawn to music - she knew she wanted to play an instrument, but wasn't sure which one to chose. True to the tenets of sibling rivalry, Laurie let Lisa know that any instrument Lisa chose to play was fine with her, as long as it wasn't the sax. The "which instrument to play" question led Lisa and her mother to a local music store. According to the owner of the store, Lisa's lip structure suggested the trumpet might be a good fit. "The music store owner picked up a trumpet and started to play," Lisa recalls. The first thing I noticed was the veins in his neck began popping out, then his face began turning red. I was only nine years old and he actually looked sort of frightening. That made up my mind about me playing the trumpet - I crossed that instrument off my list." The next instrument suggested was the flute. The music store owner, himself a flutist, had reservations about this suggestion, because even making a sound come out of the instrument, much less a pleasant musical note, is daunting for most. About three out of four people that attempt to play the continued on page 11 \\; Doug Potts and Sara van Ammelrooy of Wynola with their 1965 Silver Streak Sabre trailer.

The old folks remembered how green things used to be and nodded, saying, "It'll never be the same again." When pines began to die from pine beetle infestations it seemed as if they were right. Some years later the live oaks near Santa Ysabel were attacked by caterpillars. Ugly and scruffy they made us wonder if things would ever be right. Then we got some good years for rain--rarely enough rain but better than before--and the trees bounced back. Not nearly so long ago once again the pine trees around Julian were decimated by pine beetles. Newcomers began to wonder why Pine Hills had that name, since there weren't any pines. A wet year or two--not enough, never enough--and young pines are beginning to reappear but our lovely oaks, black oaks and live oaks both, are dying from the Golden Oak Borer. We water in the hope it might help, we cut infected trees, we pray. Pests and drought aren't all. There is always the terrible threat of fire. We lost mountains of forest in the Cedar Fire, smaller but equally devastated patches in others. Memory goes back a long way about fires, the fire that came over 79 from the dump in 1949, the fire that came up from Heise's Ranch in 1954, the Inaja Fire ad on. These days we have an additional threat--SDG&E and its contracted tree butch...excuse me, trimmers. We appreciate the effort to keep us safe from fire. How could we not? We've lived through it, unlike many of the tree. ;.trimmers. But sometimes companies paid by the trimmed tree become overenthusiastic, continued on page 14 Lions Club's MayFest Produces Surprises We really had a great turn out for the Lion's Club 2010 MayFest event held this past weekend at the Rabobank parking lot. The two day event brought many people up to our mountain community including this little boy and his parents from San Diego. Good music, hamburgers, hotdogs, traditional MayFest food, beer atd sodas rounded out the perfect Julian spring day.
