It is not false modesty when I say; "1 am only doing my job." That is what I was recognized for. If that means I have made a difference in the lives of the people that read or contribute to the paper, icing on the cake. The problem with being recognized for acing what you enjoy and what you have dedicated yourself to, is once the applause dies down you're still doing the same job, but now with a question ever present in the back of your mind, am I doing it well enough? My other problem in being singled out is there are many others in the community who are doing more than their job, and have for years without recognition. They may move from club to club and in and out of organizations bringing with them an energy and dedication to tasks that was missing, then moving on quietly. Those are the people who need the recognition. They are the ones that without their nose to the grindstone attitude, things just wouldn't get done. They are the ones who not only deserve the recognition, they deserve to have .their names in lights on a marquee. Some do it for the self satisfaction, some for the pats on the back by those that have noticed, other because they know that they have the skills and don't want them to go away. There are also the casual volunteers who show up for a specific project when asked. Who don't complain about the weather, or early hour, they just want to help, to make a difference. This group is not seeking accolades or remuneration, they enjoy and relish the feeling they get from helping. We in the back country have that spirit of volunteering, it's how we get things done. People just seem to gravitate to areas they have expertise or a deep interest in, and do the job. It's how we keep a fire department together, how breakfast at the legion can always be a fund raising event. It's why the Banjo Fiddle contest/Bluegrgss festival is approaching its fortieth year or the Melodrama has run for over 50 years. People in the community step up. They do it out of pride, they do it for family, they do it for fun. My point is, they do it. There are a lot of folks who have lived in these parts many more years than I, some go back generations, who not only understand this, they were raised to do your job and know that someday the credit would find you. If not immediately then down the road. Today we seem to live in a world demanding instant gratification, immediate recognition, praise is heaped on for the simplest of accomplishments. If it isn't, then you may have harmed that persons psyche, stunted their development, doomed them to a life of mediocrity.., what a load of crap! Life is about working toward goals and always keeping your head up, not about how much praise you can garner. Praise comes to those who earn it, not demand or expect it. There is a person here in [ Delivery to Julian $10.00 OFF town who likes to fly under the radar when it comes to doing things for I others (actually there are dozens). They do for others without asking Every 2 weeks . for anything more than a thank you.

I have enjoyed the congratulations from friends and other - PIS iacos &95 business owners, who all seem to think that what I do is important for the community. 2018 Main Street 760 765 4600 What I think is important is this community, and The Julian News is the "Community's" paper. That is what I have set as a goal, to provide the community with a vehicle to communicate. Those that think it I have some hidden agenda of swaying opinion to reflect a particular philosophy have not paid attention to what we have been doing for the past six years and are not just mistaken, they are wrong. The opportunity is here for every member of the community to get their event in the paper, to make sure that their pet project is exposed, to vent their frustration or sing praises. I told the gathering at the Merchant Association Dinner that this is the Julian News and as long as I am involved will always be Julian first (followed closely by Cuyamaca, Santa Ysabel, Warner, Ranchita, Shelter Valley and Sunshine Summit). All I ask is that you follow a simple rule. Keep it local.., local events, local people, local issues. Because if you submit it, I will print it (as long as it makes deadline-Fridays by noon).
