And here's the good news: Rosalind Haselbeck, Ph.D., will share strategies for efficiently and successfully using rainwater and graywater for irrigation on Saturday, July 24th, at the Julian Library. The event begins at 10:00 AM and is free to the public. Dr. Haselbeck will offer practical tips for managing our water usage wisely. Her presentation will focus on rainwater catchment systems - a way of "harvesting" rainwater before it reaches the ground and storing it for future use. By using stored rainwater instead of potable water for activities like landscaping or washing a car, a most precious natural resource - fresh water - is conserved. She will discuss the water cycle and urbanization, benefits of rainwater harvesting, and some options for tanks and other components. Example projects will be presented to illustrate system design possibilities. Besides informing the audience about irrigation options, she will discuss the benefits of green, or "ecoroofs". Rosalind Haselbeck, Ph.D., is a co-owner of Building Green Futures Inc., a San Diego- based company that specializes in the design and installation of green (living) roofs and rainwater harvesting systems. She is a green roof accredited professional and an American Rainwater Catchment Systems Association accredited professional. She is also a Certified GreenPoint Rater and a LEED for Homes Green Rater In-Training. She lectures part-time in Biology at the University of San Diego. Dr. Haselbeck, a UC Irvine trained biologist, has immersed herself, both personally and professionally, in nature conservancy. She teaches part-time at USD. In her spare time, she is an organic gardener, a surfer and a conservation volunteer for Navajo Canyon alongside Allied Gardens. In the last few years, she learned enough about the environmental, financial and practical benefits of green roofs that she decided to retrofit her garage with a living roof. The contractor performing the work, Rich Alianelli, was so impressed with the finished project that he decided to retrofit a workshop on his property with a green roof. This led Haselbeck and Alianelli to develop a business partnership to offer green roof consulting and installation services in San Diego. The name of their company is Building Green Futures, Inc.; the company's slogan is "Saving the world one roof at a time". You can visit her website,, for more information.

High School Board Votes To Move Forward To Replace Science Labs At Thursday nights board meeting the Julian High Schools district board swallowed hard and voted unanimously to place a Prop 39 bond issue on the November ballot. After hearing from former superintendent Jim Peabody on the need to reestablish a "real" science program at the school and Architect Rick Davie on the plans for rebuilding the E-1 science facility, and the bond consultants on how the new bonds would be under the purview of a citizens oversight committee to insure that the project followed the strict guidelines set forth, plus the promise from the state of matching funds, the board took the official next step and passed a resolution calling for a General Obligation Bond election. The bond will not increase the current assessment for property owners and will not be structured to extend the current obligation for the district to beyond 2020 when the current bond is set to be retired. It will however extend the assessment, the goal of the board was to not increase it, and they believe they have found that solution. All board members agreed the need to move forward and get the students of Julian back into real classrooms and out of the portable structures currently in use. ght (7/21) You are invited to join us for the annual Julian Merchants Association dinner on Wednesday July 21st.

On Wednesday morning he brought them together for a special day at the Town Hall. A little exercise and a pot-luck lunch, after riding the bus from Alpine the exercise was welcome, and not too strenuous. For the Julian folks it was the standard class but a different location. The other aspect of the get together was.., to get both groups together. "The opportunity of having these people meet is just to great", another "Bus Tour,' is being planned for the Julian Class, which meets at the Library's community room on Wednesdays at 11, to travel to Alpine for another get together. This event was primarily a fun get together for both groups with the serious goal of promoting fitness for all. It was attended by over 100 from both Julian and Alpine.
