It prides itself on old time values and the strength of a community that comes together in good times and in times of adversity. Amazingly, there is a community within that community that shares those values and CONE CEL[I)IffITI ITII or 1 o 7 l WI 'VI tilt 1. rI1 Join the fun!

In fact, it may surprise you to learn that on Labor Day of this year, Pinecrest will be celebrating its 50 year anniversary, Pinecrest is now a private % rienc Since 1988 retreat that is home to a significant number of classic vintage trailers and a second home (get-away) to those who own them. The park has one of the largest, solar-heated outdoor pools in Southern California, and a long history of inviting the community to share in this rich resource. In fact, for many locals, Pinecrest was the place they first learned to swim, Today the Olympic-sized pool is still enjoyed by the extended Julian community, with individual and family "Swim Club" memberships available for purchase at the clubhouse (more information on the "Swim Club" is available at the Pinecrest website: The clubhouse holds dressing rooms with lockers and heated showers, and a classic little snack bar with goodies for all. The park is happy to announce that Judy Fender will be the new Pool Manager this summer! ',Our pool club offers a quiet relaxing place to swim laps or practice exercises in a beautiful environment," says Kathleen Rosenow, who with her husband Frank Spevacek, now own the retreat. What could be more inviting on a hot summer day than a sparkling swimming pool surrounded by an oak forest and mountain peaks? Because the clubhouse and pool are at the heart of Pinecrest, (it's where siteholders come to sign-in and sign-out when they visit the park) it has an old time general store feel. Newsworthy items are posted on the community bulletin board and bags of ice and treats are available. Conversely on days when the sunlight is shimmering on the water just right and someone is quietly lounging on a deck chair reading a.New Yorker magazine, it can feel a bit more like an exclusive summer resort than a funky rustic hide-away. But it's the right blend of people who make it magical. A combination of rural firefighters and shopkeepers, mixed with urban Los Angelinos and San Diegans looking for some down-time, give the scene a relaxed and often playful vibe. Another part of what makes Pinecrest special is the mix of old and new, funky and sophisticated, that makes it hard to label it. For instance, while the road ways within the park remain dusty and unpaved, owners Rosenow and Spevacek are working with an architect to build a contemporary roof-shade structure that will also incorporate new solar heating for the pool as well as a photovoltaic solar system for electricity! At age 50, Pinecrest is still growing and changing, keeping the best of the past while making thoughtful improvements to ensure a bright future. In a world that seems to spin faster and faster, this place keeps its own pace. Siteholders often have impromptu potluck picnics by the pool and stay for the sound of campfire songs wafting in the distance. Groups can rent facilities for private parties and local entertainment. With the leadership of the new owners, the creative participation of the siteholders and the community at large, Pinecrest will continue to change and improve for another 50 years! * Tree Consulting and Inspection * Long Term Forest Maintenance and Planning * Hazardous Removal and Precision Felling * Ornamental Pruning and Lacing * Brush Clearing and Chipping Licensed and Bonded Fully Insured for Your Protection ERIC DAUBER H: 760-765-2975 C: 760-271-9585 eo Box 254 JULIAN, CA. 92036 License #945348 WE-8690A Integrity Camp z: June 20- 2~ Camp 2: ,]UlY 22- 15 Monday - Friday, 9am - prn $75 per day or $300 Cor the L0eek!

His biggest accomplishment, however, is coming to a close. Mr. Pettit worked at Julian Jr. High as an English teacher for about twenty-one years. To put that into perspective, he'd been working long before his current students were even born. Nonetheless, Mr. Pettit is more entertaining, funny, and patient than one can imagine. In some magical way, this teacher managed to keep a room full of junior high students captivated in doing grammar, day after day, year after year. His knowledge surpassed English, seeing as he also taught mythology, Great Books, and a speech elective. Mr. Pettit's contagious happy attitude made his class a real enjoyment. When we first arrived at the Jr. High, though, I'm not sure if all of us saw the amazing talent and skill in our English teacher right off the bat. Maybe we just saw him as a hat collector, or a teacher with an abnormally immaculate classroom. Whatever our opinions happened to be of Mr. Pettit, they all changed after that first day of class. He had a gift; some way of making vocabulary exciting and journal topics fun. From that day forward, everyone had an immense respect for this out-of-the-ordinary English teacher. That respect carried on through each class with Mr. Pettit through our Jr. High careers. I'm sure our respect grew over the top when his book, Running With the Moon, was published. The neat thing was that Mr. Pettit also respected us back. His guidance and praise through our attempted reports and stories was phenomenal, especially considering that he was an under-cover author all along. Mr. Pettit's time and energy supporting our ambitions were truly remarkable. I'm glad that we recognized his talent early on, but it's still with a regretful heart that we let Mr. Pettit go. I'm sure that every student will sorely miss the good jokes, diverse ties, and excellent reading voice that he shared with us each day. Mr. Pettit may be running away with retirement, but I sincerely hope that he'll drop in once in a while to inspire us some more.

The passes through the central part of California are snowed over and loaded with ice. After making some calls and determining that the northern section of the trail was also going to be difficult to traverse, the decision was made to return to Kernville and restart from there. If for no other reason than there were a number of hikers, he had befriended on the trail, who would be there to help if required and in going north he would only have himself to rely on. tO reserve your Spot F'! a two part cra Part one.
