Bench On Sunday June 21st, a bench will be placed high on Volcan in memory of Clint Powell. It will be put at a spot along the trail where one can pause and take in the marvels and grandeur of this wonderful place. The spot has been chosen specifically because it is where Clint frequently lingered. The sturdy nine foot bench has been constructed by master artisan Ken Wright from planks cut by Don Madison from locally grown wood. Ken was assisted by Sally Snipes and Tom McGrath who provided the artistic touches. A bronze plaque commemorating the bench to Clint has been cast and will be made part of it. Martha Baker from the Volcan Mountain Preserve Foundation has been instrumental in ordering the plaque, all in accordance with San Diego County ordinances. To join family and friends, please meet at the entrance to the trail to Volcan Mountain across the street from Ken and Carol Wright's house on Farmer Rd. at 9 AM on Sunday. Yes, it is Fathers Day, yes it is the Vernal Equinox, not one of Clint's favorite days, but the bench is done and needs to be put up on the mountain, out in the open, where it belongs. Do not wait for a personal invitation; you will miss out on a couple of hours in the beautiful outdoors with some really nice folks. The county Ranger will lead carpools up the mountain through the locked gate to the site. Jack Seileman has been helping coordinate all of these efforts for the past few months and he has agreed to be our event director. Light snacks will be provided afterwards at the Wrights home. Does anyone want to go to Ocean Beach and order up a few dozen "rolled tacos with guac. from L Rodeo"? Anne, Clint's sister is buying. They were one of Clint's favorite foods. Covered with blasting hot salsa, he could make them disappear as if by magic. Frequently a green trace on his beard was the only clue as to their departure.

To an eleven year old it seemed perfectly logical to give Grandmother Myrta a peck on the cheek at the door of the old ranch house, then turn to cowpony, Blaze, throw both arms around his neck and burst into tears. After all, Grandmother Myrta could write letters and wouldn't forget. Smart as Blaze was, he might not remember his little rider after two years. Grandmother Myrta didn't see things the same way. She was Deeply Offended, not to mention Unamused. Mother Virginia acted as peacemaker while Father Ed Skagen precipitately left the scene. Looking back, he was probably trying to hide his mirth. He and his mother-in-law weren't always on the best of terms. There were horses in Japan, it turned out, but both riding and the setting were different.. The Palace Riding Club was on the grounds of the Imperial Palace-- long barracks of stables for the club, another filled with the Emperor's carriages and horses, a covered riding hall, a vast arena for shows and an open ring surrounded by gingko trees. There aren't many gingko trees in Julian. There aren't massive stone walls, either, or a moat with a guard house at the entrance and a winding road to the stables to prevent ancient enemies from easily breaching the fort. The riding teachers were former Japanese army officers who taught a tall, pre-teen to stop slouching. If you weren't straight as an arrow on the horse the officer's riding crop came into use. Not on the horse. It didn't long for that particular lesson to sink in. We rode with English saddles and studied jumping and Dressage. The horses were excellent and there were several that became favorites--Sanko who had been in the Olympics, little Kinrasu, Sanri with the flowing mane and big jump, Seibi whose name meant pure beauty and suited him perfectly. But none of the horses or fancy facilities could replace cowpony Blaze and roaming around the Julian hills. Blaze was waiting when we returned in 1957 along with Grandmother Myrta. We won't go into which reunion was better. Cruising With The Julian News ~\~ ~ ~"%. Brian Crouctj and Leslie on their 1st cruise, visited Jtmeau, Skagway and Ketchikan.
