Considering whom the attendees were, I was quite surprised. One could expect any manner of shenanigans from that particular bunch. The good behavior may have been the result of a deputy sheriff being there. Someone planned ahead, I guess. As the folks had assembled, not only for a great dinner, but to hear who had been elected to serve as Julian's Honorary Mayor for 2014, it seemed prudent to introduce the mayor early in the evening. That gave everyone the opportunity to, harass, ask questions of the mayor and just generally act up. As the festivities got underway, five of the six mayoral candidates lined up calmly in an orderly, albeit unusual fashion for them, to hear the name of the mayor. Ms. Le Pet, the "lady" who crashed the July 12th mayoral debate at the Town Hall, was nowhere to be seen. It was reported that "she" was spotted on a yacht shortly after the debate, wearing men's clothing. As "she" had declared her write-in candidacy, a bit of underhanded activities may have been afoot, as only the votes, in the form of cash, collected at the debate on behalf of Ms. Le Pet, were ever declared. "She" is reported to currently be in Canada. Hmmmm! The other honorable candidates were Charles Scott, Johnny Hake, Mike Hart, Tom Nickel and a second write-in candidate, Stacy Peyakov. (I guess they are all honorable. Time will tell). Now, those folks showed up in more ways than one. The funds they collected were hard-earned. They each were rewarded for their efforts with a small token, which in no way was adequate to express Patti Thornburgh and my appreciation. Chef Charles Scott said he had enough dough for all of Julian. He received a rolling pin so he could roll his dough a little thinner should he decide to run for the office again. It will go farther that way, in influencing voters to cast .their.votes for him. The Julian News owner/editor7 publisher (whewl), Mike Hart was awarded a copy of "Poor Richard's Almanac" so he can choose a slogan for his, if ever, next campaign. Johnny Hake, Julian's Community Shepard (and I mean it), received a pocket knife along with advice to "cut his ties with dishonest guys". That's good advice for us all, especially those having political aspirations. Our local brew master, Tom Nickel, is the proud, but probably temporary, owner of a bottle of cheap rum. Advice came with it; "try the hard stuff to sway voters", although his stout beer is truly outstanding. Then the big announcement was made. Stacy Peyakov, the intrusive female write-in, who declared at the Town Hall debate, that her intentions were to win, was named the new Honorary Mayor of Julian for 2014. Stacy was deliberate in her decision and in her stand on her "soap box" (really). She said she intended to be mayor and that she would clean up this town, if elected. Well, we're watching to see, Madam Mayor!! Your family heis been in Julian since 1938 and you had better make them proud. (Please feel free to direct all your comments and complaints to the mayor). The new mayor was presented Home-Based Business 101 The Mayor, surprised that her standing with a key to Julian's red light district and the responsibility of keeping order in the town. A lovely hammer was given to Mayor Peyakov to assist her in that endeavor, as well as a generous supply'of soaps to help with the promised cleansing. The key will be passed on to the mayor of 2015 and all those who follow, but the soap and hammer may be kept forever by the current mayor. I think the overwhelming landslide came as a big surprise to everyone. The, now- on the soap box campaign paM off. photo by Michael Hart expenditures almost nil. An opportunity drawing was offered to the attendees, with only one basket of goodies up for grabs. The basket contained items and certificates for goods amounting to $558.90. The cost of a ticket was a mere $1.00. The basket was won by Betty Rikansrud. Lucky Betty! All those good folks who donated the items in the basket, please know how very appreciated you are. We can't meet our goal of renovating and restoring the Hall without you. Look for your narqes mayor's, campaign vas assisted and businesses in an upcoming immensely by an anonymous issue of the newspaper. donation of $5,000.00. The donor was determined to assure that the feminine faction of Julian would lead the town. I think it worked. A huge thank you is offered to all of the candidates who so selflessly gave of their time, energy and persuasive powers to amass the "votes" in their efforts to become Julian's Honorary Mayor. Most didn't want to win, not knowing what is to come over the next year for the winner, but their bottom line was to raise money for our fund. That was done with absolute admiration for them all. The total of the candidates' efforts totaled $9,283.18, bringing the Julian Town Hall Restoration Fund's total to $11,638.22, with total expenses of $339.20, to date. Everyone has been so very generous, making the need .for Jeremy's on the Hill catered the event and a wonderful spaghetti dinner was served, followed by the best Florentine cookies ever. The entire dinner was donated to the Julian Town Hall Restoration Project's fundraising efforts by Jeremy's and Charles Scott, Candied Apple Pastry Company's owner and chef, donated dessert. Those two chefs and their staffs did an outstanding job. Everything was delicious. All the donations, both monetary and personal time and work, that the good citizens of Julian have given to the Project have helped in a really old fashioned Julian way, to kick off this monumental effort. Our hearts are full with the gratitude that only a small town like ours can instill. Patti and I thank yo u. Chef Charles Scott of Candied Apple Pastry Company, Chef Jeremy Manly of Jeremy's on the Hill, Mike Menghini of Menghini Winery and Dave Klumph aka DJ Dave, were all recognized for their substantial donations to the Town Hall Restoration Project. photo by Jeff Straus The U.S. Small Business Administration and the Julian Chamber of Commerce Join forces to present this FREE event Home-Based Business 101, in Julian.

Comet Rendezvous Perks Interest In StarFest 2014 First close-up images of a comet ESA's Rosetta has become the first spacecraft to rendezvous with a comet, opening a new chapter in Solar System exploration. After a decade-long journey, Rosetta and Comet 67P/Churyumov- Gerasimenko now lie 405 million kilometers from Earth, half way between the orbits of Jupiter and Mars. Rosetta, traveling at nearly 55 000 kilometers per hour, will accompany the comet for over a year as they swing around the Sun and back out towards Jupiter again. Jean-Jacques Dordain, ESA's Director General said that after ten years, five months and four days of looping around the Sun five times and clocking up 6.4 billion kilometers, it has finally reached its destination. He added that Europe's Rosetta is now the first spacecraft in history to rendezvous with a comet, which is a major highlight in exploring our origins, and the discoveries can begin. Since its launch in 2004, Rosetta had to make three gravity-assist flybys of Earth and one of Mars to help it on course to its rendezvous with the comet, which allowed it to pass by asteroids "Teins" and "Lutetia", obtaining unprecedented views and scientific data on these two objects.
