State License #7o4192 Fully Insured for Your Protection Workers Comp. . 1. May 2101 arrived with a promise of brining lovely spring weather. The first days were clear, lovely and warm. However, beginning with the ninth day, the weather picture changed and from then on into the month, we had two or three days of stormy o wether with wind, clouds, drizzle, fog and cold. Then a couple of days of clear warmer weather and again stormy weather. On the 24th day we even had some snow flurries. It was remarkable hoe the weather kept changing until the end of the month. The last days of the month were delightful and warmer. It was a lovely month. 2. The wild blue lilac bushes have been blooming so bountifully all around our area and began fading out the second week of the month. 3. Now the wild white bushes have blossomed and so plentifully about our countryside and town. I had may bushes on mu property before the Cedar fire and lost them all. However many of them have come back now, I have many in bloom for the first time since the fire. I did not plant them, they came as a surprise to me and I am enjoying the beauty around me. There is a lot of growth of trees and bushes taking place and my place does not look as bare as it had since the fire. The Yuccas have also sprung up around the hillside. 4. Another beautiful scene involves the very many brilliant orange poppies in , clusters everywhere I drive into town, at home and all around the hillsides. 5. In my yard, a large primrose bush, which I did not plant, has been covered over with so many roses and is just lovely. My other rose bushes are just beginning to bloom. 6. Things at the town hall have been busy this month with the upcoming Miss Julian Pageant and the town beauties are all hoping to win. So much goes on behind the scenes and it's all exciting to watch them. 7. The craft show has been busy about half the month and has been discontinued until mid June. The overall economy has been the reason for slow business. 8. The final activity at the town hall is a very lovely Art Show the last weekend of the month. The Art Guild has done a marvelous job putting that show together. We are proud of our artists. 9. Quite often on my trip into town I come across a wild turkey standing in the middle of the highway. He's waiting for the rest of the group to cross. Sometimes he's all alone. 10. We received some fresh lettuce, green onions and peas from the folks of the Community Garden. We are honored by this thoughtful gift. Many thanks. 11. We ended the month with the wonderful Memorial Day ceremony at our Heaven of Rest Cemetery presented by the American Legion Post 468. It was a wonderful event commemorating all who served and gave lives for our country, a lovely tribute by the Post.It was followed by a great potluck luncheon held at the Legion Hall. 12. May has been a bust month and went by fast. Now we are looking forward to the events June will bring. *** I'm Glad I Live In Julian *** 4th of July BBQ Tickets On Sale The American Legion Post 468 is now selling tickets for this years Deep Pit BBQ at the Legion Hall.

Rob Hutsel, Executive Director San Diego River Park Foundation Presents: Protecting And Preserving San Diego County's Primary Indigenous Fresh Water System When: Saturday, June 12, 2010 at 1:00 PM Where: Julian Library Community Room The year was 2001. San Diego County was undergoing another onslaught cf immense growth. Real estate developers were gobbling up huge tracts of lands, encroaching further and further into our precious back country. Builders were giving little thought to preserving open lands, other than what they were forced to do in exchange for the governmental okay to develop their high - density communities. There was so much money at stake that politicians and developers alike lost sight of the potential consequences of their "build baby, build!" mind set. Enter Rob Hutsel, a man with a vision. With so much financial incentive to keep developing land, Mr. Hutsel realized there must be a concerted plan to insure the preservation of important natural ecosystems so vital to maintaining our quality of life. After all, wasn't San Diego County's natural beauty and welcoming climate the motivation for people to move here in the first place? What would be left if the natural beauty was gone? In 2001, Rob Hutsel brought together a grass-roots group of other preservation - minded individuals to form The San Diego River Park Foundation, a non- profit organization. The founding members understood the need to stop the long and ongoing destruction of The San Diego River System. The members realized the importance of restoring the river to a clean and healthy freshwater ecosystem and then maintaining its natural beauty in perpetuity. Their goal was simple to protect and preserve our region's primary native fresh water system - from its headwaters near Julian, then along its 52 mile course to its meeting with the Pacific Ocean. Equally important was the Foundation's vision to make the entire length of the San Diego River a green belt accessible for all to enjoy as a continually - linked series of recreational parks, open spaces, public places, community facilities and trails. Recognizing the immense financial and political strength of those whose interests ran contrary to preservation, the Foundation knew a collaborative effort was necessary to have their voice heard. It would take all the resources The Foundation could muster to get the hard work done. To that end, Rob Hutsel and the other members of the San Diego River Foundation worked to develop The San Diego River Coalition. The coalition is a collaboration of the resources of 70 organizations - from government agencies to business and civic leaders, plus other groups, from neighborhood preservation groups to worldwide environmental non-profits. All these groups and organizations contribute support to the San Diego River Foundation's mission and goals. So much of the good work done by Rob Hutsel directly impacts the quality of life that residents and visitors enjoy in the Julian area. Don't miss meeting this extraordinary preservationist and learning about the past, present and future of the San Diego River.

On display will be the wildlife watercolors that Joe Garcia is so known for, and the plein air and studio landscapes that now have an equal place in his painting life. Opening Reception is Saturday, June 19th, 4-8 PM. The public is invited. Painting rural life, both tame and wild, has become a special interest of this internationally known Julian artist and resident. Garcia can often be seen out with his field easel, or his camera, chronicling the mountain area of Julian and about. "Antique barns- before they go, the old gliders at Warner Springs glider port, the town of Julian, Volcan Mountain, the uniqueness of various trees, certain horses at pasture"; this is a partial list of the things that are currently catching the Joe Garcia painting eye. Garcia says that he particularly likes painting the habitat around Volcan Mountain and never tires of painting that mountain's many moods. A native Californian, Garcia grew up on a small ranch near Escondido, where he developed an awareness of wildlife and habitat. He studied illustration at Art Center College of Design in Los Angeles and worked as a graphic illustrator before deciding in 1983 to make fine art his primary focus. His work has appeared in the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum's Birds in Art exhibition in Wausau, Wisconsin, and he is in the permanent collection of the Bennington Center for the Arts in Vermont. Garcia exhibits annually in major wildlife festivals throughout the country, and this year received the honor of being selected as a judge for the Federal .Duck Stamp competition, Joe Garcia is also a well known and respected teacher of painting. He has been a demonstration artist for the PBS series "The Artist's Workshop", has been featured in numerous art books and magazines and has written a major article for the publication Watercolor Magic. He is the author of two books on watercolor painting technique titled Mastering the Watercolor Wash and The Watercolor Bible, both published by Northlight Books, which are now considered must haves in many painter's libraries. This fall Joe Garcia will be teaching a workshop in Tuscany, Italy. Santa Ysabel Art Gallery is located at'30352 Highway 78, at Highway 79, in Santa Ysabel, seven miles below Julian.
