This specific training with rattlesnakes is effective and we believe it has saved many dogs. Your dog's safety is our first concern and rattlesnake avoidance training will help to keep your pet safe. Indigenous rattlesnakes to Southern California include the Southern Pacific, Speckled, and Red Diamond. rattlesnakes are found in the many canyons, trails and around homes throughout the region. Encounters between rattlesnakes and dogs will eventually occur. The dogs' inquisitive nature makes them vulnerable to the rattlesnake's bite and venom. Despite veterinary care, lasting effects of the venom may still compromise the dog's health. Thus, the best protection is for the dogs to avoid the rattlesnakes all together. On July 24th the San Diego Sporting Dog Club and High on Kennels will offer a training class at the Santa Ysabel facility - 26920 Mesa Grande Road - cost for the training is $75 for each dog. Conducted by Owner/ trainer Tracy Jenson-Presson, who has been training dogs for others since the age of twelve; her entire life has been dedicated to dogs and their training. Tracy has trained dogs for police work, handicapped service, obedience and gun dog work, she is well known in dog training circles for being a problem solver when it comes to difficult dogs. Having handled all aspects of problem dog behavior Tracy possesses tremendous insight and knowledge of dogs, their behavior and how they think. Every year many dogs are bitten by rattlesnakes and die or suffer through the pain, trauma and illness associated with a rattlesnake bite, as owners we suffer the agony of watching a beloved pet suffer or succumb to a rattlesnake bite as well as the huge financial costs associated with anti-venom treatment ( $1500 - $2000 for treatment) While the pre-bite therapy offered by some veterinarians offers some hope of your pet surviving a rattlesnake bite there can still be problems and there is no cure for the bite of the Mojave Green rattlesnake found in our local deserts. We at High on kennels being outdoor enthusiasts have experienced rattlesnake encounters in the field with our dogs and know just how scary this can be, consequently we have developed a simple and quick method of teaching your dog how to recognize and avoid rattlesnakes. You can contact Randy Domingos 619-895- 8608 [RandyDomongos@] or J oeArtes 619-933 -2322 [JArtes@] for registration and information.

Backpacks For Students Julian Educational Foundation Supports This Year's Backpack Project & Challenges Community to do the Same. This year local resident, Janet Jones is once again organizing a backpack drive for our local students. For three years Janet has collected school supplies and donations in order to fill as many backpacks as possible for our local students. She has been given great support by community members in achieving this goal. She is hoping for the same support this year. A fundraising dinner has been scheduled at Poncho Villas in Julian for August 4th. From 5pm to 8:30pm. Where Poncho's owner will donate 20% of all the orders during that time. In addition, a bake sale will be held at the event and 100% of those proceeds go to the cause. Community members are also encouraged to bring school supplies to the dinner to donate. Items needed include: pencils, paper, binders and binder dividers, pens, colored pencils, markers and crayons. Even calculators and composition books are needed. The Julian Educational Foundation has agreed to MATCH all donations received for this cause up to $500.00. School supply costs add up quickly and the funds will be put to great use right here in Julian. If you would like to make a donation, you may send it to the Julian Educational Foundation, PO Box 397, Julian, CA 92036. Businesses wishing to make a donation should contact Janet at 760-765-0596, prior to August 1st. As posters with your business name will be hung at the dinner for all to see, as well as at the high school on registration day. The challenge from the Julian Educational Foundation is for the community members and businesses to raise $500, which will then be doubled to $1000. The Julian Merchants Association has already put the wheels in motion for accomplishing this goal by donating $100 to the JEF, which will be presented to Ms. Jones at their annual dinner meeting at Menghini Winery on July 21st. For information on how the backpacks are distributed or any other questions you may contact Janet Jones at 760-765-0596. Have You Seen A SanDiego Lilly The rare San Diego Lily (Lilium humboldtii ssp. ocelatum), a variation of the larger Humbolt Lily, is making its later-than- usual appearance in our local mountains. Look for the orange petals with maroon spots often growing in the shade of oaks or in the midst of some protecting Manzanita. They are currently appearing on the east side of the highway between Vista Point and Lake Cuyamaca. photo and information from Bob and Sherry Engberg The Julian News 3 Accepted Here S turdsy8mn-6pm Sunday 9mu-Spm All Your Tree Service Needs Commercial I do not object to people looking at their watches when I am speaking.

Student musicians will attend one of three sessions depending on ability and experience. Beginner: students with no instrumental background Intermediate: students with one year of elementary band Advanced: students with more than one year of band experience All sessions are 90 minute and meet in room P101 on the Olive Peirce Middle School Campus. Instruments will be provided for those who do not have them. Available for student selection are wind instruments including: flute, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, trombone, bassoon, and oboe as well as percussion and bass guitar. The summer program helps students get off to a good start with an understanding of the fundamentals of instrumental music. Students will improve their skills enough to become a highly successful band student. Five year veteran Erendira Martinez says "If you really love music, summer band is a way to do it." Director Karl Lampe explains that what makes summer band unique and exciting is the individual tutoring offered by Ramona Unified School District students who share their expertise with the younger students. Each student enrolled in the Summer Band program will have fifteen to twenty minutes of daily individual instruction from a trained tutor knowledgeable on his/her particular instrument as part of the 90 minute class. "During the regular school year, as many as 40 students can be in a band class with only one instructor for only one half hour of instruction per week" says Mr. Lampe. In contrast the two week summer band intensive offers instruction nearly equivalent to what students get over an entire school year. An added advantage is the option to get one on one tutoring after class. The following highly skilled Ramona High School and Olive Peirce Middle School students will be providing exceptional tutoring; Jeannette De Weerd (trumpet/euphonium), Taylor Romero (flute), Cheyenne Brugh (flute, tuba), Jonathan Hancock (alto sax), Bethany Griswold (flute), Abisai Lopex (trumpet), Marcus. Green (alto sax, tenor sax, bari sax), Zachary Thomas (percussion). The public is invited to a live concert, Summer Band culminates with a free concert open to the public on July 30th at 6:45 p.m. at the Ramona Oaks Community Park. The audience will enjoy solos, duets, trios and band arrangements performed by the student musicians of the summer band class. Food and drinks will be available for purchase for dining al fresco. Proceeds from the sale of the food will be used to fund future band programs. For more information contact band director Karl Lampe at or 858-472-4185. Applications are available online at
