Last Wednesday evening about seventy merchants and other business owners gathered for the annual Julian Merchants Association picnic, elections and awards. Many Certificate of Appreciation awards were handed out to the various people in Julian's business community who give their time beyond what can be expected, volunteering to promote our community. The final and most important award given is to the Julian Merchant of the Year. Originally Ruth Lepper's idea, the award is presented to the person or persons who own a business in the Julian community and by vote of the membership is decided the best promoter of Julian. This year, the fifth year of presenting the award and accompanying county proclamation, my husband Mike received it. The San Diego County supervisors also declared July 21, 2010 to be Mike Hart day. rm really pleased for Mike because I know he deserves recognition for all that he does for our community. Mike works way beyond what might be expected of a newspaper owner and publisher. Mike began driving to Julian for the love of a woman.., me. After growing up together, we lost touch, both got married and divorced, and then I found him online. We began dating in September of 1999. He moved in with me in July of 2000, telling people that he always loved the mountains. Falling in love with me gave him a great reason to move here. In the winter of 2000, Mike started his own Internet Service Provider. His first clients were himself, me and Keith Gaudette (of Apple Alley Bakery). Mike wanted to know the service worked well before signing up more clients. By October of 2003 we had over 250 clients and that's how Mike met lots of people who live in and near Julian. When we owned Julian Web, Mike often put local events on the home page. He urged people to vote and he posted information that was pertinent to back country residents. He didn't get paid for showing the events and their dates. He did it as a community service. 2003 was a memorable year for us. In February Mike bought our house in Wynola; On April 1st we got married, streamed live on the internet, and then in October we all experienced the Cedar Fire. The Cedar Fire relocated many of our Julian Web clients, though I can say with pride that Mike kept Julian Web online for all but 2 hours during the evacuations and had always told clients how to access their email while away from home, using other computers. AT&T high speed became available to people living close to town and took away some more clients. When our host kept us offiine for nearly a week; that was the last straw. We shut down Julian Web with regrets because we always were proud of our integrity. Meantime we bought the Julian News and our first issue that was our very own was the 4th of July issue in 2004. Mike has consistently misspelled words and is known far and wide for his misspellings. However, I'm often told that he publishes more Julian News than previous owners and I know he works very hard at keeping The Julian News a local newspaper, though he is now working nearly alone with no reporters or news contributors. We bought The Julian News because Mike always wanted to own his own radio station. Not having the millions of dollars for a radio station, he felt that buying a newspaper was the next best thing. He loves owning and publishing his own newspaper. Once Mike moved to Julian, he immediately volunteered his time for local events, groups and causes. He says I got him started right away because of all the volunteering rve done in and around Julian through the past twenty-six years. Because of all of my volunteering; I introduced Mike to people I know here every day. Mike has worked many hours volunteering his time and expertise in many areas to help others. He's been a volunteer most of his life and continued working to help others during his ten years in Julian. Even I, his wife, am not aware of all that he does until I happen to see a Thank You card, or someone stops me to tell me about one more thing Mike has done that he probably could have been paid for, but' didn't ask for money. In 1995 I spent a month living in Spain. Europeans apparently aren't volunteers the way Americans are. During that month, I was occasionally asked why Americans work so often without pay. I said it's what we do to help others. This is a difficult concept for the Spaniards that I talked with. They wanted to know why we work for free when we could get paid. It's what we are taught by our parents and many of us just like to help when help is needed. Mike and I both learned to volunteer by example. His mother volunteered many hours at the schools he attended and she worked for the local elections. Mike's father, with the busy schedule of an Architect, still found time to give when he could. Mike is grateful to be recognized for all that he does for his community, yet he is not comfortable being set apart from the many people who work hard and long hours to help others and never get recognized for their efforts. A true volunteer works for no pay and is not looking for recognition. We help others because they need help. Mike is a true volunteer, and our back country neighborhoods are filled with others like him. These are my thoughts. No game in the worm is as tidy and dramatically neat as baseball, with cause and effect, crime and punishment, motive and result, so cleanly defined. -- Paul Gallico Architectural Review Board Actions On July 6 1.

The orchid normally blooms late May-August in dry mixed coniferous forest and likes partial shade. This month it has finally made its annual appearance in Pine Hills and the Cuyamacas. The plant blends into the dry leaves and bushes and is easily missed. It stands about 8"-14" tall with up to 90 white to yellowish flowers. It is scented at night and reportedly smells like cloves. from Bob and Sherry Engberg i
