June 3, 2009 Julian PONY Baseball The Julian News 7 Kni After a break for the Memorial Day Holiday, Julian PONY baseball galloped back into town last week with a much needed win for the Don's Market Rivercats, a doomed last minute rally for the Poncho Villa Rattlers, and an extra-inning squeaker for the Jerky Hut Knights and Miners Diner Sand Gnats. The Bronco division Rivercats took advantage of the rest, and the leadership of Christian Dominguez, to post their first win since the season opener. Christian hit 5 for 5, scored 4 runs, and pitched scoreless ball in the 3rd, 4th, and 5th innings. Jake Cirillo also put the bat to good use, with three singles and a walk to score 3 times. For the Julian News Bulls, first baseman Nighteagle Taylor scored two runs and made two unassisted put-outs. The Bulls lead the series 5 games to 2, with a cumulative run advantage of 80- 67. In Mustang ball, each of the last 5 games was won by either 1 or 2 runs. Both the TLC Plumbing Storm and the Poncho Villa Rattlers have gotten on and around the bases, but by the time the fat lady sings the Storm have been on top 4 of those 5 games. And so it was again Saturday, g despite a last inning Rattler rally. Down 12-7, Taylor Cole led off with a walk and felony larceny of second base. Ulysses Grant singled, moved up a base on Jed Kron's walk, but was cut down on the way to third by Storm pitcher Cory Flack's toss to Jo Jo Jennings. When clean-up hitter Eddie Phillips stepped in to the box there were two out, two on, and 5 runs to get. So run he did, turning a decent smack into a 3 RBI inside-the-park, full-steam-ahead, don't-stop-for- anything home run. The Rattlers then loaded the bases, but with the tying run at second and the winner at first, pitcher Cory Flack shut 'em down on four pitches and veins filled with ice water. The Storm lead the series 6-1, scoring 97 times to the Rattlers' 81. Pinto division is shaping up as the tightest pennant race. Saturday's game had the crowd on the edge of the picnic tables, when, after the full 6 regulation innings, the scoreboard (if there was a scoreboard on that field) showed 4 hard fought runs apiece. The Sand Gnat's typically hot bats were catching more air than ball, and excellent" Knights defense by Timo Nelson at the mound, Toni- Story and photo by Curt Nelson Marie Dominguez at short, and Gage Baay - seemingly with a magnet in his glove - at first base squashed Gnat run production. With Shetland division parents milling anxiously, wishing Pinto was done so they could start, the game went to extra innings. And the Sand Gnat bats woke up! Frankie Alvarado led with a sharp double, Roman Sanders tripled him in, and the ever- dependable Kyla Blanco's single RBI'd Roman. Down by 2, the Knight's lan Kenner pounded a double up the middle, but was snagged on the way to third by heads-up defense from shortstop Shane Cranfield and third bagger Josh Fletcher. With two outs, the game in the balance, the crowd in hysterics, and the mood "do or die", 5 singles in a row from PJ Davis, Derek Grant, Kaleigh Kaltenthaler, Gage Baay, and the game winner from lan Alexander boosted the Knights to a 7-6 win, and their dug-out went wildt Sand Gnats still lead the series 4 games to 3 and the total score 47-39.

N.A, Member FDIC Gears Up For a Summer of Fun The students of the Julian Community Preschool are getting ready for summer with a curriculum that will combine both learning and fun! This summer the Julian Community Preschool will offer children between two years old and 6th grade, a summer curriculum that will include local field trips, water play days, bubbles galore and sand castle building. The Julian Community Preschool is not your average daycare. It's a place of learning where fun, and educational activities are always combined into one, outstanding curriculum! For the month of May, preschool students learned how to grow and care for plants. They also learned about flowers, insects and birds and even planted their very own garden at the preschool! This summer they will be able to taste the "fruits of their labor" when it comes time to harvest the vegetables that they have grown. The month of June's educational theme will be Ocean Life. Students will be learning about the ocean and its creatures, and will discover the science behind things that sink and float. They will also be learning about the self-concept of being helpful. Preschool students are also gearing up for Kindergarten, writing their own names and participating in learning assessments. Is your student ready? If not, the Julian Community Preschool can help get them jump-started! This is not your average summer daycare. It may offer daycare services, but the Julian Community Preschool promises to provide an educational curriculum disguised with exciting, summer fun! If you are interested in joining your child in on the fun, please contact Patti, the Julian Community Preschool Director, at (760) 765-0047.
