My Thoughts by Michele Harvey A Bit Of Julian History Wednesday nights, once a month, the Julian Historical Society hosts a program of local history. Usually the program takes place at the old Witch Creek School, also known as the old library, on 4th Street between Saint Elizabeth's Catholic Church and the Pioneer Museum. Mike and I like to go to the programs to learn a bit of Julian's history from people who know a lot more than we do, and sometimes we get to hear people who actually have lived some of our area history. Last week we toured some of the older grave sites at the Julian Haven of Rest Cemetery and heard David Lewis, the cemetery historian, talk about his work to survey and locate graves. David is a good speaker, talking to his audience, not above or below them. Just as he spoke of his nemesis, gophers, one popped up to let everyone know that David has a serious problem, and we all got a chuckle at the gopher's timing. David Lewis wrote a book titled "Last Known Address", about the cemetery. After spending eight years researching his subject and traveling across the country to interview descendents of Julian's pioneers, he writes about the history of the cemetery and the cemetery association, then describes his efforts to find graves that he knows exist in Julian's cemetery on the hill. He concludes his book with stories of the lives and deaths of a few of the cemetery residents. David's book and his continuing work to locate and identify graves show his dedication to what has become his life's work. The profits from David Lewis's book don't go into his pocket. He uses the money for projects at the cemetery. A few months ago the Historical Society program included a movie about a day in the life of a small school. The school in the movie was the Witch Creek School which was near what is now The Star B buffalo ranch. Last months program brought in people who were students pictured in that 1939 movie. They all talked about going to school in the 1930s and 1940s and the audience heard some great reminiscences. This past year we've heard panels of people who grew up in Julian or nearby. We heard how and when some of the pioneer families came to the area and what it was like to live here in the late 1800s and early 1900s. We heard stories about the first electricity in Julian and about the first telephone service. One program was about the history of our local American Legion post; another was a show and tell program in which people brought old objects and explained what they were and how they were used. I'm glad that we make time to attend the Julian Historical Society programs and that we are paid members, helping the society bring Julian's history alive. Besides memberships, the Julian Historical Society finances its projects by selling books at The Julian Bookhouse and Julian Yesteryears. David Lewis' book is sold at The Julian Bookhouse, The Julian Coffee House, Falcon Gallery and Julian Yesteryears. Program schedules are printed in The Julian News. These are my thoughts. Mourning Rio continued from page 1 Rio was again alone. Rio was paired with two additional females in late 1999 and early 2000, but both were removed from the wild. Finally, Rio paired with F592. After travelling to the San Carlos Apache Indian Reservation and being temporarily removed from the wild at the request of the tribe, Rio and F592 were taken to the Gila Wilderness of New Mexico and released back into the wild at Tom Moore Canyon on December 5, 2000. In June 2001, they were removed from the Adobe Ranch in New Mexico with the use of a helicopter netgun. The stated reason for their removal was livestock depredation. Rio was never released into the wild again. He was taken to the Sevilleta Wolf Management lying motionless while the procedures were completed. On examination, it was noted that his left carpal joint was completely fused, with no movement at all, and yet he never showed any sign of lameness. In the fall of 2007, it became apparent that he was losing his eyesight, yet he still seemed to thrive with the helpful guidance of his sister Aspen. In 2008, his hearing also was failing and yet he managed to sense the presence of caretakers, slowly getting up and moving away from them. December 7, 2008, at the age of 14 and a half years, he weighed 74 pounds, which was evidence of very good health for a canid of that age. In the last six months of his life he was seen having more difficulty getting up with his hind legs and was moving slowly. He Francisco with Rio the pup Facility and, in March 2002, was moved into a pen with his sister Aspen, F168. The two of them would remain together as companions for the rest of his life. Rio was neutered November 6, 2002, and brother and sister were transferred to the California Wolf Center in Julian, California one month later. At the California Wolf Center, they were allowed to 'retire' in an off-exhibit enclosure that looked out over the Southern California desert. He was one of the largest Mexican Wolves in the program weighing in at 80 plus pounds. Every year when it was time for his exam, he would quickly run into the wooden den box and quietly wait for a Y-pole to be placed over his shoulder, photo courtesy National Geographic could still get to his food and he always managed to eat his fill. On May 28, 2009, he was no longer able to use his hind legs and the decision was made to humanely euthanize him. Rio's contribution to the Mexican Wolf Species Survival Plan and to the reintroduction of Mexican wolves into the wild is unparalleled to date. Just as important is the knowledge and understanding that he imparted to the many people that had the honor and privilege of observing and caring for Rio. For more information about how you can become involved with Mexican wolf recovery, please contact public relations at the California Wolf Center (415- 531-5550).
