Shelby and Tieg are a singing-songwriting folk duo from Los Angeles. They've been described as a modern Simon & Garfunkel, if one was a female. Equipped with only their voices and an acoustic guitar, they found they were able to put a unique sound on each-others original songs. Originally starting as a trio in 2010, they have performed over 150 shows together and have released three CDs. They will be performing original songs as well as covers including Disney's "On.ce Upon A Dream" and Mr. Rogers "Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood". The San Diego based Troubadour interviewed Tieg Johnson at the Far-West Folk Alliance Conference held in Irvine last Fall. They reported that one of the biggest scene-stealers was this LA based trio, Shelby, Tieg and Tara. One performance at a time, they stole the hearts of the conference attendees with their impeccable harmonies, skilled musicianship, and charming personalities. Portions of the Troubadour interview.with Tieg Johnson are as follows. First, Shelby, Tieg and Tara were all solo artists and they wanted to maintain their.ability to perform as solo acts. They knew one another as friends and neighbors and started singing together when Tieg needed backup singers for a Christmas party he had booked. It went so well, they formed a trio in early 2010. More recently, Shelby Lirdley and Tieg Johnson have been performing as a duo. Although they have no formal voice training, Tieg is a trained guitarist from the Musicians Institute in Hollywood and Shelby is a natural vocalist. Tieg says, "We seek to have harmonies that send shivers down the spine a la Eric Whitacre and lyrics that communicate like Tracy Newman. The great thing about having heroes like them is that you strive to always get better. I don't know that you ever reach these goals. Harmonically and melodically we're at the mercy of the moment during songwriting, Usually, it just comes to us." When they are not performing together, Tieg teaches guitar lessons to budding musicians. Tieg began playing the guitar at age 10 and became part of a performance troupe. Shelby is a studio vocalist. She is also a voice actress for Japanese Anime films. She performs English voice-overs. They both feel that it is nice to stay in the field of work that you truly enjoy. Please come for this free concert, listen to fabulous songs and melodies, and support two musical artists with natural talent. The August Music on the Mountain concert is on Tuesday, August 6 at 6 pm at the Julian Library. The library is located at 1850 Highway 78, next to the High School. For more information, please contact the branch at 760-765-0370.

Taxpayers Prevail In First Hearing On Fire Tax Last week, the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Asscociation's legal team appeared in Sacramento Superior Court to defend against a state request that the lawsuit, against what they believe to be an illegal fire tax, be dismissed. The state claimed the suit could not be brought as a class action and they wanted several of the plaintiffs to be dismissed because those plaintiffs sought refunds for everyone who paid the fee, not just those who filed appeals with CalFire. HJTA's Director of Legal Affairs, Tim Bittle, urged the judge to allow the case to move forward. If the State acted illegally, he argued, it should not be rewarded by getting to keep the money of over 800,000 Californians affected. HJTA sent two members of their legal team to argue on taxpayers' behalf. They were joined by a small group of citizens in matching red "Burned by the Fire Tax" tee shirts, who sat in the audience to offer their support. Recently, the judge issued his ruling. The judge ruled in the HJTA's favor that they can sue as a class action and did not disqualify any of the plaintiffs. Unfortunately, for now the judge has also said that if the case is ultimately decided in taxpayers favor, taxpayers will only be able to receive refunds if they filed a timely appeal with CaIFire. This case will be a long process and this decision will not necessarily determine the final outcome. Still, HJTA has won an important victory with the judge's initial decision to allow this case to move forward as a class action. However, the judge's decision also underscores the importance of filing a timely appeal with CalFire if you want a refund. The forms and detailed instructions can be downloaded from a special website, set up by the HJTA, firetaxprotest.org, by clicking "refund." I AcknoWledge Their Sacrifice Sons Of The Legion Annual Event Expands To All Day Affair The Sons of the American Legion Annual breakfast for the Warrior Foundation, This Sunday August 4. (photo from last years breakfast) all photos courtesy SAL post 468 This years Warrior Foundation breakfast at the American Legion is Sunday and is scheduled to be  all day affair. After holding the annual fundraiser in February the men of the SAL decided to move the even to a warmer time of the year. In part this was due to the number of other American Legion Posts that wanted to use the event as a motorcycle ride for their members and to get it away from the conflict of holding it on Superbowl Sunday. This year you don't have to rush to get your breakfast as they will be serving all day. Another new wrinkle, and serving will be inside and out to accommodate the always large crowd. This event is one of the s most admired in Legion Halls across the country. Post 468 has raised tens of thousands of dollars for the Warrior Foundation since the SAL started this special benefit breakfast and with the new date they are expecting to do even better. There will be live music provided all day starting with Blake Rogers for the early risers. A country band - "Back 40" will have the mid morning duties, Glenn Smith is scheduled and to keep the energy up all day SAL member Ron Taylor will provide some background with his DJ set up. Breakfast will be the usual hearty fair, but the big difference is you can take your time.., it will be served all day. Come out and have pancakes for lunch or an early dinner if you want. The post still has the picnic tables in their parking lot to accommodate the expected crowd So if you are one of the hand full of people who have not attended this event in the past, your reasons could be called into question. It a great cause, put on by great folks, and it's only $10 Honoring and helping is what the Warrior Foundation does The line inside the Legion with few seats available Overflow crowd out on the patio Cong] atulations To Julian Pie Company, The S: nothers family- Merchants Of The Year www.julianca.com
