It seemed a poignant affair. I have, however, often wondered why the Legion persists in flying that immensely unattractive black flag beneath our "Stars and Stripes." As a small child, I remember our flag waving unencumbered against a bright blue sky. The Senate Select Committee on POW/MIA affairs of 1991- 1993, led by Senators John Kerry, Bob Smith, and John McCain (no stranger to that war), found no compelling evidence that proves any Americans remain in South East Asia. However some others, in just as prominent positions, disagreed. Hence the never ending POW/MIA saga. 4470 HWY 78-- I The Vietnam War is past.

Isn't it time we remove that most depressing of flags and allow our Stars and Stripes to flutter unencumbered once again? Susan VanDeerlin Julian "They're our Fireworks too". Have you ever driven to Ramona on July 4th to watch the Fireworks? I've done so for many years with my family, and enjoyed it tremendously. Especially for the children, watching the fireworks creates wonderful memories. Did you know that the fireworks show is funded entirely through donations? As a member of the Ramona Rotary Club, I serve on the fundraising committee for this event. Each year, our challenge is to raise $20,000 in expenses, primarily for the professional show, but including things like insurance, generators, lights and promotion costs. It has been a major community event for the Rotary Club, one that rm proud to be part of. When you look at the donor list, with one exception (Ideas in Wood), all of the money raised is from individuals and businesses from Ramona or Poway. Last year, as my children and I enjoyed the show, I realized how many Julian folks were all around me. And I had the thought of asking in our community - would you consider making a donation to the July 4th Fireworks event? Gifts range from $10 to $1000. Every gift helps. You can imagine our concern in this economy as to how fundraising will go.

Our club is committed to holding the event this year, but who knows what the future holds. So I hope you'll take a moment to send in a donation. 100% of your gift wil be applied to the event cost. Simply send a check to Ramona Rotary Fireworks, P.O. Box 276, Ramona, CA 92065. Gifts of $50 or more will be recognized in the Event Program. Major Donors ($200+) receive additional recognition. I hope you'll join me in supporting the patriotic tradition. Please call. me if you'd like to discuss a donation, 765-0642. Tom Madeyski, Julian 'resident & member, Ramona Rotary Club COP?EE HOUSE 1921 Main St. call in an order: 765 1906 I I I I I Dear Editor: i As many are no doubt aware, I Gv Schwarzenegger intends I ':!1 to propose the closing of I -i several local state parks, due I East Minute to the economic crisis the state I Graduation R1STOI"LANTE is facing. Potential closures, which could start as early as this fall, could include Anza- Borrego Desert State Park, Cuymaca Rancho Park, and Palomar Mountain Park. I can only imagine that such closures would have a negative impact on the Julian economy, which I estimate has suffered probably at least a thirty percent loss of normal revenues overall since December. I do not have any precise numbers regarding how many people who visit these parks also either pass through (and spend money)in Julian, but I imagine that the closures of these, parks would be felt by local merchants in a significant manner. The Governor may close hundreds of other,, parks in California, but I doubt the proposed closing of the Carlsbad State Beach Park (another park that may be closed) would have as negative an impact on Carlsbad as closing the local parks would have on Julian. I wonder if the Governor is weighing such issues while making his final determination as to which parks should be shuttered and which parks should be kept open? Julian, being remote from San Diego, now suffers from a diminished number of tourists while, Carlsbad, for example, has more or less a large "captive audience" of residents in and nearby the city. Perhaps people should be encouraged to write the Governor's office and ask him to carefully weigh this upcoming decision before he takes steps that further cripples our area's already fragile economy. Sincerely Rod Underhill, Esq. Julian you pick the | amount < I | Accepted i i i i i i i i i i i I i i l i i i ABDSP closure would devastate local economy Borrego Springs, CA - Governor Schwarzenegger's recent proposal to close an estimated eighty percent of state parks would have a devastating effect on local economies and parks alike. Anza-Borrego Desert State Park (ABDSP), California's largest state park located in eastern San Diego County, has been targeted for potential shuttering. With over 600,000 acres, closing ABDSP would lead to the closure of twenty percent of the total land area of San Diego County. ABDSP's immense size means there are countless access points onto Parklands. In the event of a closure, protecting the Park's fragile lands will be impossible and the potential for irreparable damage is massive. Visitors who flock to the Park for its solitude, unparalleled beauty, and mild winter weather often stop in Borrego Springs continued on page 13 ISSN 1937-8416 ~~i Michael Hart and Michele Harvey .....
