Through the years of me writing columns for The Julian News, I occasionally write a column asking people to shop locally. I shop near my home whenever possible. I live in Wynola, and I tell people that if it isn't sold between Wynola and Santa Ysabel, then I probably don't need it. I could also say that if an item can't be found between me and Lake Cuyamaca, then I don't need it. It's true that my grocery list is smaller than many because my produce selections are limited. Fortunately for me, I grew up in the 1950s when many of the varieties of produce weren't available. So... if I can't grow it, and if it's not in Julian or Santa Ysabel, I can do without. I can still buy and cook all the meats we ate when I was a child, and I can buy buffalo meat locally when I want to eat a red meat that's actually good for me, so when I buy my food locally, I don't feel deprived. Well, hardly ever deprived. As a merchant, I believe that it's important for me to be an information center. I can tell people how to get to Palm Springs from Wynola and I can tell them where to get a good meal near the Salton Sea, on their way. Holly Mae's is about as good as Super Burger was in it's time. One recent day, a man was looking at the tin signs I sell at my shop, Julian Yesteryears. He asked if I carry any surfing signs. I told him that Pistols and Petticoats, upstairs; next to the Julian Caf6 has a good selection. Guitar signs? If Pistols and Petticoats doesn't have any, try The Warm Hearth. Or the Old Julian Garage because they also have good selections of tin signs and we all carry different ones. A few years ago I wrote a three part column describing each store in the Julian, Wynola, Santa Ysabel areas. Just as each local restaurant has something special to that particular restaurant, all of the local retail stores have their unique flavor too. Quite a few people have told me that they cut those columns out of the newspaper and have posted them somewhere in their house so they will remember to look at them when they need a gift. Many have told me that they shop more often at local stores because of those columns I wrote. Some of the stores in my three partseries have moved and one or two others have been replaced. Take a stroll in each area to refresh your memory of local stores and businesses. I know people who have lived in the Julian area for over ten years and never stepped foot in town or anywhere nearby where they can shop or eat. What's the point of living in this friendly community if you don't get to know your neighbors? Those people are missing a lot of sights and they are missing the opportunity to know their neighbors; people who could help them in the future. Restaurant owners and shop keepers often get asked for donations for lots of good causes locally. Once again, I ask those people who are asking for donations to come back and actually buy something from each of those businesses. It's really difficult to keep our doors open if we keep giving away our products instead of selling them. It makes sense to understand that if we spend our money at Wal- Mart and other big stores that are miles away from our homes; that money won't come back to our community. Buying online is a good way to make sure none of that money will come to our community. However, if we buy from businesses that are close to home, nearly every penny of that money stays right here in our own community. The taxes those businesses pay come back in many ways including fire protection and into the bank accounts of many local non-profit organizations. I may sound like a broken record when I urge people to buy locally. I certainly have been saying it for years and years. I guess my biggest question here is why you would shop away from home when you can shop near home. I know that some people work miles from home and it may seem easier to shop to or from work. But take a moment 'to imagine what it would be like if those businesses close to home closed down and disappeared. Last week Soundings, our local business supply center closed and now it's gone. We lost a place to buy school and office supplies. No more chances of buying one pencil or pen. No more opportunities to buy just a few sheets of copy paper ot colored tissue paper. How far will each of us have to drive now to get one copy made? Though my money is currently not spreading as far as I'd like; I recommend lots of local businesses to anyone who asks me. I even encourage people to try new businesses that I haven't gone to, but that I'm aware of. If we open our eyes, we see many shopping areas in San Diego County that are turning to near ghost towns. Please don't let it happen to businesses near your home. These are my thoughts. Summer Splash Recently, Boy Scout Troop 690, sponsored by American Legion Post 468, spent two days white water rafting on the Kern river. In a break from our usual summer camp adventure, where we go to an organized Boy Scout Camp and participate in structured programs( for those of you who follow the troops history, know the boys do quite well) This year, as a reward for all their hard work, We did something more high adventure with families invited. Our trip started Just south of Lake Isabella on the Kern River. All equipment and meals were provided by an outfitter. The boys had to qualify for the trip, b}/ earning the canoeing merit badge. With this last winter's snow fall in the area, the river was the highest it has been since 2006, which means giant rapids. Most of the 20 mile journey was considered class II or III rapids but we encountered several class IV rapids as well . The journey was broken up with an overnight camp out at a remote location on the river. The food was great, the camaraderie was outstanding and a good time was had by all. Our next trip is San Clemente State beach. We camp out every month and see all kind of sights and learn a bunch. If any of this sounds appealing to you and your son, age 11 to 18 please feel free to stop by our meeting Monday nights, 6 pm at the American legion. Stay tuned for our next big adventure.

For most of her life she lived in San Diego, but she had also resided in Julian and Ramona. When her arrival into the world was due, the family lived in the small landmark town of Foster, which is now under water by the San Vicente Dam. Lona was born at Mercy Hospital in San Diego, but lived the first year of her life in Foster. She raised her family in the Bay Park area of San Diego and was the supreme "Sports Mom" way ahead of her time, hauling her kids along with many other kids in the area to their various sporting events. She loved spending time with her children and taught them to enjoy life and it's pleasures to the fullest, even without having a great amount in the way of funds. In high school, Lona was a member of a synchronized swim team that performed at various locations, including the bay at Fiesta Island. Later she was One of the featured underwater "Mermaids" at the Stardust Hotel Lounge in Mission Valley. She was a beach person through and thrcugh, and she carried her boogie board in the trunk of her car, ready for use even at the age of 75. It was at Mission Beach that she met her husband, Rupe Andrews. They were associated with OMBAC (Old Mission Beach Athletic Club) and both were long time participants in the Over-the-Line tournaments. Lona was on a three member team that claimed a woman's division title. Lona made many life-long friends in all phases of her life: friends who stuck together and were always there for each other no matter what the occasion or problem was. They held many events where they could enjoy each other's company to the utmost. She is survived by her four children Michael(wife Teri), Steven, Linda and Gene, four grandchildren, four great-grandchildren, her sister, Donna Lewis, nephew David, niece Kathy, great nieces and nephews, and friends too numerous to name but whom were deeply loved. Lona was pre-deceased by her husband, Rupe, and her parents, Ruth and Harry Starr. She will be greatly missed. A celebration of life will be held on Sunday, July 24, 2011, starting at noon at South Mission Bay Park (Bayside Lane) at the southeast end of South Mission Beach. In lieu of flowers the family asks that donations be made to Meals on Wheels, a program for which Rupe and Lona volunteered.
