This .38 acre lot is only $55,000 by Bill Fink I think the last parade I ever - participated in or even watched before I moved to Julian was when I was a Cub Scout in New Jersey. It was a typical July 4th, a sweltering day, probably 150 in the shade with humidity so thick we had to draw our Cub Scout issue pocket knives to cut our own path through the thick, hot air. I didn't have the luxury of a summer uniform, the parade route was a hundred miles, and the heat from the pavement permeated the soles of my flimsy sneakers and the gooey tar threatened to pull them off my blistered feet with every step. I had to go to the bathroom, and the procession ended in some ,, pasture full of animal poop where cows or rhinos grazed. Not fun, didn't see any adoring family or friends waving along the route, I , got sunburned and in the fifties the thought of keeping yourself ~, hydrated was just being a wuss. Such was my perspective as an .~. eight-year-old farm kid where the biggest hoedown I participated in - was the potlucks at the Grange... but the Grange was fun unlike this gauntlet of misery. " rm liking the Julian Parade though. I admit that sitting under a canopy with a microphone stuck in my face and a cooler full of ice water next to my table is probably the best seat in the - parade except for maybe the Hutchinson's on their balcony over-looking Main Street sucking down those cold home brews. Anyway, I haven't missed this event in the eight years rve been here. There's a bunch of people that work real hard putting this on and it gets better every year. I got a little insight into the furious last minute preparation, confusion and details that go into staging the parade and I have great appreciation for the folks on the Parade Committee. They put on this event as a labor of love with their charitable contribution of hard work and money, rm sure they're taking a breather now, but work for next year will start soon. If you want to be part of it, ask around I'm sure you'd be welcomed with open arms. But let me tell you why I like the parade and what I like about it. First of all I like the fact that we celebrate this holiday that celebrates our founding. Two hundred and thirty six years ago the Signers of the Declaration of 'Independence pledged their lives, honor and fortune to make the thirteen colonies free of the tyrant King George III and Britain and many of them lost all in their fight for freedom. As I circulated the crowd prior to the parade I had copies of the Declaration with space at the bottom where I had eliminated the original Signers names. I asked people if they would like to reaffirm their belief in the founding principles of our country by signing the document. I was pleased by the enthusiastic response. People crammed their signatures onto the thirty copies I had and rm sure a lot more would have been filled with more time and more copies. What thrilled me was when Moms and Dads with children signed and had the kids sign as well. They took the age appropriate time to explain what the document was and why we celebrate this day. What touched me was when people identified themselves as Mexicans, Canadians and Brits but asked if they could sign in support of our nation. What amazed and saddened me were the people who didn't even know what the Declaration of Independence was. There were others that wouldn't sign as a matter of principle because of abhorrence of the abuses by our nation. Most often heard was slavery, and treatment of Native Americans and women. rll get into the phrase "to form a more perfect union" another time but suffice it to say then, if their principles were so offended, then why were they at the parade celebrating the day? Get outa;here (I didn't say it, but I wanted to) and go eat your hot dog somewhere else. It was a beautiful day and no one was going to rain on this parade. What I love about the parade is the small town feel with a touch of big city thrown in. Big city airplanes, fire engines, police cars and marching bands. Small town Doves and Desperados, horses, tractors, Julian Misses, Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts and our local Politicos. And don't let me forget the crazy guy Bill Pettersen with his troupe of nut cases called the Bad Comb Over Maid Service or the Weed Eating Elvises that add a little fun and whimsy to the parade every Year. I know the kids in the parade were having a good time, did you see their faces? Did you see the smiles on the Grand Marshals and the other Vets in the Jeep? Are you proud as a community that a Color Guard of Marines would come to our little burgh to honor us? Are you proud of our American Legion Post and the men and women that served this nation in war and now serve our community in peace and honor us with a Color Guard that's been in every parade? Oh yeah, small town America, Morn and Julian Apple Pie. Don't forget that great pit barbecue at the Legion. In its 70th year with a great crowd, bands, dancing, a fabulous large plate of food and cold drinks the party was a sellout.

"! Today's technology lets teachers reach out to students around the world. Two years ago, Microsoft launched the Partners in Learning Network, a global online community that brings together 4 million educators in 36 languages. Like Wikiwijs, the Partners in Learning Network provides teachers with a forum for sharing the best practices and classroom materials, and making connections that enrich their careers and their classrooms. ~k The Partners in Learning Network has benefited veteran teachers such as Rahn, as well as those who are early in their career. For Jerker Porat, a teacher from ...rebro, Sweden, the biggest contributor to teacher attrition is the classroom routine that tends to seep in over time. "Technology has allowed me to avoid that trap by sharing good ideas and by picking up someone else's good ideas and making them my own," said Porat. Through Partners in Learning, Porat has developed a network of colleagues that help "break the walls" of his classroom, allowing him to take his students on a worldwide journey by building networks with classrooms in other countries. Says Porat: "With the Partners in Learning Network, I found engaged teachers who wanted to share their ideas and were open for international collaboration. Not only has it helped me grow as a teacher, but rve received inspiration from all over the world!"
