12 The Julian News HEALTH and PERSONAL SERVICES (760) 765-2100 JULIAN MEDICAL CLINIC We accept Healthy Families Insurance WASHINGTON 92036 2721 JULIAN, (Next To Town Hall) . OPEN MONDAY- FRIDAY 8:00AM TO 5PM 24 HOUR ANSWERING SERVICE As Heard On The Streets Of Julian by Eric Stamets National Sudoku Championships To Be Held In Julian The National Sudoku Championships will be held next year In Julian in an effort to find a quiet place for the participants to compete. They are tired of big cities and you would suspect that Las Vegas would be an attraction, but anyone who plays a game based upon numbers knows that it would be a losing proposition to go there. To have the National Championships in Julian is a tremendous show of appreciation for The Julian News because of their support in carrying a Sudoku in every issue. There will be three competition categories. One is for people who have computers for brains, one for advanced players and one for people who think they're good. There will not be any attorneys allowed to compete because of the lawsuit filed about the ambiguity of the number 4. Imagination isn't merely a surplus mental department meant for entertainment but the most essential piece of machinery we have if we are going to live the lives of human beings. -- Ted Hughes Special Notice Julian Holiday Food Drive We of Julian Outreach will not be putting on our annual Christmas Holiday Food Drive and are terminating this program after many years. Our sincerest thanks to all who had a part in this program, especially: Scott Brown of DON'S MARKET from whom we purchased the food items that made up a complete Christmas dinner including a frozen turkey and several other items. Scott charged us for all items at his cost. Becky of SOUNDINGS provided the application forms, notices and letters at no cost to us. Mike Hart of The Julian News provided all the publicity at no cost. Don Hall and Tyler Johnson provided the empty apple boxes until last year. Fred Slaughter bought boxes for us last Christmas. Liz Smothers of the Julian Pie Company always provided an apple pie for each box given. The Julian Chamber of Commerce allowed us to use the town hall for storage of items collected and for setting up each box for distribution. All who donated food items to supplement the purchased items to our decorated donation boxes at the schools and certain shops in town. Jean James helped me decorate those many donation boxes. And special, special thanks to all who donated money to pay for the purchased items. It has been remarkable that the money we received each year was just the amount needed to pay for our expenses. Only one year we had a shortage. We are grateful to all.

Now Available Certified Animal Adjusting, Only Unlikely Friendships continued from page 8 not seen only in domesticated animals. In China, staff at a natural reserve witnessed an unusual bond between an abandoned rhesus monkey and white dove believed to be part of a bird migration study. For two months, the macaque and dove shared a space and snacked on corn together. The monkey even showed affection, hugging the dove. If only the dove had hands and arms with which to hug back! Of course, the most surprising interspecies bonds can sometimes be between humans and other animals, particularly predators. When National Geographic photographer Paul Nicklen was assigned to shoot leopard seals in the Antarctic, he was determined to shoot fast and get out quick. Leopard seals have been known to attack humans. But a 12-foot female took a liking to Nicklen. The seal hovered around him, as if posing for the camera. She then hunted and killed a penguin -- the seal's usual prey -- and offered it to Nicklen repeatedly. When the photographer ignored her offering, the seal then brought him live penguins and blew bubbles in his face, as if exasperated with his passive nature. For more stories of remarkable friendships in the animal kingdom, check out "Unlikely Friendships." "If animals can do it, humans can also learn to accept their differences, big and small, and believe in the power of friendship," says Holland. "After all, it's in our nature." It's a delightful thing to think of perfection; but it's vastly more amusing to talk of errors and absurdities. -- Fanny Burney Chef's Corner continued from page 6 nearly 40 percent! This delicious Blackberry, Pecan and Goat Cheese Salad showcases the sweetness of the berry while providing the crunch arid smoothness of the pecans and goat cheese. It's the perfect summer salad!

My Thoughts continued from page 5 situation. The Julian Chamber of Commerce holds their board meetings every third Thursday evening at the Julian Town Hall at 6 p.m. The Julian Merchants Association holds its board meetings every second Wednesday morning of each month at 8.a.m. Currently they are meeting at Wynola Pizza Express. Anyone can come to the meetings and listen to what both associations do for our community. I wonder if Ben realizes that the entire country and much of the world is experiencing a major recession. Compared to other cities, Julian is doing quite well. When a business moves out, a new business moves right in. Two years ago Ramona had 35 empty store fronts. They have more now. Palm Springs had 110 empty store fronts two years ago. To date, Julian has no empty store fronts. These are my thoughts. Visiting With Lily Bother Val's Adventure continued from page 11 where I look out to see Randy's friends moon us at take-off. As the plane struggles to gain altitude, Buster looks scared and I say something positive, which is not what I am feeling. I'm thinking, My God, where was my brain when I suggested this idea! I have got to quit drinking so much beer at the Eagles. I've got to remember all I learned today--- lets see, count--- 1 one thousand, 2 one thousand, 3 one thousand--- 8 one thousand .... . Arch, that was real important; I have to remember to arch .... . Reach up for the straps, check the chute. How far was I supposed to pull the straps, was it to my chin or all the way down.? We level off and Buster gets into position. His legs hang out and his hands are on the struts. His eyes are as big as a Texas grapefruit; unmitigated terror is on his face. She calls "JUMP!" Buster holds tight .she hollers "JUMP[" he just can't let go. Finally, after a third order, he lets go and is out of sight. My heart's beating faster. Mike is number two. He moves into position,, lets go, and is gone. My time has come . My legs hang out, wind blasts my face; I'm clutching the strut.Oh, God, I'm scared. Now she's hollering at me, "JUMP-JUMP!" I let go and forget every damn thing I learned. No arch, no counting, my arms are flailing. The line jerks and the chute opens. My brain finally kicks in; I reach up for the straps and look up at my chute, "Oh S__t!" One panel of the chute isn't open, what was I supposed to do now? I yank on one of the straps and look up again. Nope that didn't do it. The radio on my chest comes on and a calm voice says, "pull both straps down together." I do it and look up to see the canopy billow. Thank you God; I owe you one. I look around to see the beautiful country. Snow capped Mt. Hood is on the right and on the left is a cornflower blue lake. Gosh, it's quiet and peaceful up here. Everybody looks tiny down below. What a tranquil feeling to gently float down towards the grassy field. Periodically the radio directs me to pull one strap or the other, guiding me in the right direction.. This is great! I love it! This was definitely one of my better ideas! It's time to turn and come in for the landing. I pull both straps down a bit late, my boots dig into the grass. I tumble as I land; not as graceful as I would have liked, but what the hell, I don't break anything. They say any landing you walk away from is a good landing. There are hugs and back slapping all around. What a day! What a high! No beer, not enough cigarettes, too much standing around, and yet it was a stellar day. We get our certificates and report cards. Mine says "Arch needs work!' We head to town for a cold beer and I smoke my last cigarette. School Volunteers continued from page 11 3.
