July 1, 2015 The Julian News 5 An Evening Of Being Wined The kid was adorable, maybe 9 or 10, and playing away at Chopin and Mozart on her violin to a piano accompaniment. Seriously. The pieces were hard and she played every note. Sometime she even got them right. It was one of those things One Gets Into as a former diplomat. Mihai frequented the American Library in the 1980s and was a great lover of music, especially jazz. Now, thirty years later, he is an impresario for various groups, has an internet based TV show and is still a friend in spite of regular attempts to get the old face on camera. And only a friend could have gotten us into this kind of deal. "Club Orfeo" is the setting for Mihai's weekly hour and some long TV show (unless they cut it, which one hopes they did) and in addition to the child violinist there was a young man to who played the piano passionately, light brown forelock flipping at rhythmic intervals, and a girl from Moldova who was even better. Best of all, there was a clarinet quartet that was out of this world on music from Mozart to ragtime. We sat at a long table laden with wine from the sponsor, Domeniile in the Dobrudja, as well as sweet and salty pastries. The other 'guests' who spoke rather than played were a Romanian tourist magazine editor, jowly and a bit pasty faced, and the Ambassador of Montenegro. It turned out the Ambassador's brother lives in La Jolla and he had visited Julian. "Apple pie..." he reminisced, quite originally. Came our turn to talk to Mihai. Bottom line: Don't try to make jokes on live TV in a foreign language when you're tired and have had two glasses of Domeniile wine. Everyone DID laugh but for the wrong reasons. But we were each given a bottle of said wine as we left. A little pourboire as it were... David April Vice Admiral David Charles Richardson passed away peacefully in his San Diego home on Saturday, June 13, 2015. He died at age 101. His family was with him and celebrated his life well lived. David was born in Meridian, Mississippi in 1914, the only child of Isaiah and Anne Kate Richardson. He earned the rank of Eagle Scout, graduated from Marion Institute and attended the United States Naval Academy. He graduated with the class of 1936, and after two years on. the Vice Admiral Charles Richardson 8, 1914 - June 13, 2015 Gates Open 7 Days 7a.m, to Dark Office. M-F 9 to 4 closed Sat & SL battleship Tennessee, was assigned to flight training in Pensacola, Florida and earned his wings in 1940. Reporting to Fighting Squadron Fivel David flew F3F's and F4F's. In 1942 he saw action when he flew off the USS Saratoga, was credited with the first kill of a Japanese "May" seaplane while under control of the USS Saratoga, and then to Guadalcanal, where he shot down three additional enemy aircraft and was himself shot down. He earned his Distinguished Flying Cross, Bronze Star, Air Medals and Purple Heart during that action. Later in the war he commanded Fighter Squadron One. Following WWII, David studied at the Royal Navy Staff College in London and then spent two years at the Naval War College in Newport, Rhode Island as a student and staff. He commanded Carrier Air Group 13 during the Korean War and served in mid-career staff tours including naval aviation planning for both Europe and the Pacific. Additional commands included USS Cimarron and the aircraft carrier USS Hornet where he won the Battle Efficiency Award. With promotion to Rear Admiral, David commanded Carrier Division Five/CTF-77 off Viet Nam. In 1968 he was selected for Vice Admiral and assumed command of US Sixth Fleet based in Gaeta, Italy. In 1972 he retired as Deputy Commander, Pacific fleet based in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii and his family returned to Julian, California. Following his naval service, David began consulting and advising in the exploitation of intelligence and in the technology of command and control of naval forces. He served many years on national intelligence panels, including the Naval Research Advisory Committee and was a member of the Naval Intelligence Advisory Board. On his 95th birthday, David received a formal recognition for his significant contributions to naval intelligence. All of his successes were made easier with the love and support of his beloved wife of 58 years, Jeanne. In 1955 David married Jeanne M. Simonds, a Navy widow and mother of Caprice. He had two sons from a previous marriage, David and Robert. They combined both continued on page 11 '[ Be Prepared 2015 by Michele Harvey The first time I wrote a column about disaster preparedness was in 2009. Every few years Johnny Hake, head of our local CEnT program, asks me to publish it again. Johnny Hake asked me to reprint this column because important information bears repeating. MLH I learned a lot in my CEnT classes about disasters and how to deal with them. However there are so many ways we can all prepare ourselves for smaller inconveniences. This week rm writing about smaller disasters. Getting stuck in a car, living through power outages, and other unexpected short term inconveniences can be less of a problem if we are prepared. Having lived in these mountains for over thirty years, I've picked up some wisdom which I now share with you. I keep at least tank of gas in my car at all times. If I have to evacuate in a hurry and the local gas stations are closed, I may have to go quite a distance before I can find a place to fill my gas tank. Also, if I have to evacuate, I may not have money for gas. When we evacuated from the Cedar Fire; we had to drive from Wynola, east to the desert, and then north to Temecula. Temecula was our first chance to buy gas. After that we drove west to San Diego with no immediate need for a gas station. I keep a blanket in my car at all times. Through the years rve used it to cover myself when the air is extremely cold and my car heater won't work. I've put it on the ground to slowly drive vehicles out of ice patches. On really hot days I've covered my steering wheel and my dashboard with my blanket when I park my car. I carry several bottles of water in my car, and some crackers, protein or breakfast bars, candy or nuts and a good book. I never know when I'll get stuck on the side of a road waiting for a tree limb to be cleared or for unexpected road work to keep me sitting in my car for long periods of time. In my car is a jacket, a terry cloth towel, a roll of paper towels, window cleaner, jumper cables, a box of Kleenex and sometimes a pair of clean, warm socks. They have all come in handy when needed. I also keep two carpet remnants in the trunk of my car. The bigger one is about 3 x 4 feet. I just never know when I might need one. Years ago my family got stuck behind a freeway accident on an interchange. With a very long wait ahead of us, and no way to drive around the accident or to back up, many of the occupants of the other vehicles surrounding us were walking around. My boys were preteen; so I certainly didn't want them walking along a freeway interchange. Since we had a long wait ahead of us, I enlisted my boys to help me, and while we waited for the accident to be cleared, we cleaned all of my car windows, inside and out. Once we finished cleaning the windows and the accident hadn't been cleared, we expanded our cleaning efforts. We did our best to clean all cleanable surfaces. Because wekept busy, the wait time seemed much less. At our house we keep some canned goods because they are a good source of liquid. We have bottled water, bleach to put drops in the water if we need it for drinking, lots of blankets and quilts, sleeping bags, wood stick matches, candles and matches near candles and oil lamps. Duct tape is a necessity. It's so useful. One of my most interesting uses was to hold my tire chains together. Yes; it worked; but I don't recommend driving very far with this fix. Duct tape is so good for so many uses; we could probably even temporarily patch our roof with it, Fire Academy continued from page 1 !

The candidates faced each teaching challenge with vigor under severe conditions such as pouring rain and merciless heat. In the end, 10 members graduated the State curriculum and are full fledged members of the Department ready to protect and serve our community. Graduation ceremonies were held at the down town fire house Saturday June 27th and were preceded by a hands on demonstration by the graduates showing what they had learned. Following the demonstration, Candidates, their families and friends were treated to a delicious luncheon donated by Jeremy's on the Hill and others. The ceremony was a proud moment for all participants and our community. It was quoted by one of the graduates grandfather "1 had no idea you guys did all that!" The graduation also marks a milestone of the level of commitment the Fire Chief and the Fire Board have for our community. Congratulations to all the graduates. Technology got you down?

[2 bottles of frozen water help keep food cold and when the water thaws each bottle is ready to drink or to use for cooking. -- We keep at least six 5-gallon bottles of water in case of emergencies. U Sometimes they are really convenient for flushing toilets. Again, without electricity; we have no flowing water, so the 5-gallon bottles of water are great to have available. We bought the empty water bottles at Don's Market in Santa Ysabel where you can also fill them. Antiseptics such as alcohol and peroxide are good to have., though they need to kept away from children or anyone that could harm themselves with them. Bandages or old clean sheets that can be ripped into strips are good to have. Sheets can be used for many purposes including tie downs. A battery powered or wind up radio should be handy for listening to news updates. Flashlights and a supply of batteries, are a must have. It's important to keep at least a three day supply of food, drinking water, first aid supplies and a plan for shelter. It may take that long for emergency responders to reach you during any large emergency. If you can add things to this list that will make you feel more relaxed during an emergency, then of course you should add them. When Mike and I evacuated during the Cedar Fire, we took our pillows and our favorite blankets. Our cats settled easier in our temporary living space because they were surrounded with familiar aromas and it was so easy to cozy up to our familiar pillows. All ofus need to be as prepared as possible for the next disaster, whether it be large or small. Not only will we get through the emergency much better when we are prepared; we will also have peace of mind, having fewer reasons to get stressed. These are my thoughts.
