On her new CD Petite follows the musical path she began laying down on "Tiger Mountain" and "Lead the Parade," but this album is tempered with the more rocking but still roots-based influences of artists such as Steve Earle. With the new release coming on the heels of being named "Best Americana or Country" in the 2009 San Diego Music Awards, Petite stands to go from up-and-coming artist to an artist that has arrived on an international level. "Doghouse Rose" is currently #24 on the Americana music charts and climbing. Sara learned to sing country music by studying the best like Loretta LYnn and Dolly Parton but she herself says, "1 don't always consider myself a country artist, my songs range from bluegrass to country to rock 'n' roll, but I know my voice sounds distinctly country." Petite's songs revive fond memories of history, home and travels. She speaks with obvious relish when relating stories of such colorful characters as her grandfather, who as a pioneering representative of the aviation industry, sold a plane to Elvis Presley. Another tale is about her Uncle Irving, a nature writer who once lived with a bear, chickens and goats on Tiger Mountain in Washington State, which became the family's emotional home base.

However, I've been thinking about several things that I can give some space. Last week's Julian News carried my column about my pet peeves. Actually it was about just some of my pet peeves. I have others as do many of my readers. One reader told me that I forgot the most important of his pet peeves, Bicycles being ridden on the highway. Another hates to drive behind people hauling trailers. Another reader told me his pet peeve is people who know how to do a thing well, but don't. They have knowledge and they have skill, yet they take shortcuts and do shoddy work. It's interesting how different things affect us all. One of my biggest pet peeves about myself is when I commit to doing something, then forgetting. Even writing it down doesn't help because I forget where I put the note. My father died in the Korean War the night my brother was born. My mother raised three of us children by herself. Since we were all teenagers at the same time for about five years, we tended to wear mom out. Sometimes I found mom sitting in her favorite chair, reading the Christian Science Sentinel, a booklet that she subscribed to and received in the mail weekly. In the Sentinel mom read stories of people who found ways to meet their daily challenges through their faith; their lives improved and mom found the stories very inspiring. She told me that reading about how people met and overcame their problems through their faith helped her to understand that others had harder lives than she did and they came out ahead. It really helped her to meet and survive the challenge of raising her three children. I can say without hesitation that I think she did a great job of it. I whine a lot about the weather when it's hot and humid. For me, it's too hot if the temperature is over 75 degrees. What stops my whining is thinking about people who have it worse than I do. I remember the lessons my mother taught me about people whose lives are worse than mine and they complain a lot less than I do. So this week I'm thinking about the people in Pakistan who are trying to survive the floods, loss of crops, homes, possessions and livelihoods. Some have lost family members too. It seems silly and selfish to complain about our local temperatures and humidity when so many are living lives that are so much more difficult than I could ever imagine. Our local library has all the usual library things that can be borrowed. The Friends of the Julian Library have a book store where we can buy top notch books at low prices. Our public library also houses a bit of treasure that I think few people who walk in and out of the library notice. I'm talking about the basket and racks that sit just to the left of the doors as we leave the building. The basket, looking like a small plastic laundry basket holds out-dated magazines. These magazines are free. We can take them and we don't have to bring them back. I have found TIME, LATINA, Kiplinger and a large variety of other titles. To the left of the basket are two metal racks that stand about five feet high and are wide enough for an 81/2" by 11" piece of paper. These racks hold information sheets and pamphlets about quite a few subjects. On Friday last, I saw pamphlets explaining the importance of vaccinations for several communicable diseases, the summer camp schedule for Balboa Park Summer Camp 2010 which goes through August 31st, informational pamphlets about West Nile Virus and Pandemic Flu with information on how to protect our families from these dreaded diseases. I saw an application for Changed Assessment. You have to read some of the application to understand that it is for a changed assessment of real property value. The racks hold calendars for the County Libraries Acoustic Showcase, a program of music with dates and locations throughout the year. Catalogs for extended studies for San Diego State University and several community colleges sit there waiting for someone to take them home and utilize them. For a little town ours sure has a lot to offer each of us. Our public library is a very good place to begin new activities. rve lived in or near Julian since February of 1984. Back then, the area had very little evening entertainment. In the late 1980s, when people asked me what there is to do in Julian at night; I told them that this area supports three video rental stores. True story, and they were very busy movie rental stores. Now we all rent DVDs instead of videos when we want to watch a movie at home, but the last movie rental store closed up last year. I think Don's Market still has rentals, but I'm not sure. Our public library has movies to check out, but what interests me is that Julian has activities every night of the week, so I think it's possible for us all to be too busy to take time to watch movies more often than occasionally. My last subject this week is my newest grandchild, Nathaneal. "Nate" was born five weeks ago, a tiny baby at 5 Ibs. I oz. He's been gaining weight and length ever since and is, thankfully, a healthy little guy. He is my son Thomas's son with the love of his life, Stephanie. Sometimes when I'm feeling particularly tense or worried about paying bills or anything else that's really bothersome; Stephanie brings Nate to me and lays him on my chest. He's too young to be active, and sitting with him sleeping on me soothes me. All of my grandchildren are precious to me, and he is the fifth and tiniest. He's already helping others, which would be me, in his own tiny way and not even aware of it.. These are my scattered thoughts this week.

A Life-Changing Experience By Jordan Affeldt-Cruz As a sophomore in high school, I wrote an essay for the chance to go to the HOBY leadership conference. My essay won against two of my classmates, and I got to experience something mind-blowing. HOBY stands for Hugh O'Brien Youth (Leadership). As an actor, Hugh O'Brien helped high school students learn more about being the kind of leader the future needs. The conference lasts about three days, and changes the lives of youth all over America. When I first arrived, I was overwhelmed by the intensely cheerful energy of the Junior Staff. They yelled in our faces and led us in several perky cheers. They were the happiest people I had ever met in my life. Throughout the weekend, we learned about different kinds of leadership and how we could help save the world. Teens hear this all the time, but when it came from them, it seemed to click more. Sitting next to other teenagers who had the confidence to stand up, ask questions, and not be afraid of being wrong was amazing. It: created a unique, positive energy that you don't always feel in high school. The speeches were great, but not as great as the teenagers I spent the weekend with. They were the most confident, smart, independent, friendly people I had ever met. They weren't afraid to express themselves, and I felt like I could be whoever I wanted. During the dance, everybody was dancing together, there were no groups. In the talent show, although some people messed up, the applause seemed greater than what you hear at a Hannah Montana concert. Everyone felt at home there, it was a home. Letting go and being yourself never felt as good as it did there. Although I wish I could've held on longer, I knew I had to leave after three days. The experience wasn't just about having an amazing time, They send you out, with faith that you will do the best you can to be a great leader. It inspired me to do what I really want. It sends the message that even though we're young, we teenagers can accomplish anything we put our minds to. There are lots of causes that teens help transform. We are the hope of the future, and HOBY teaches teenagers that we should not be afraid of ourselves. I learned that every small thing, contributes to the world. The little decisions we make, they all make an impact, however small. Why not try to make the impact positive? *** You end up as you deserve. In oM age you must put up with the face, the friends, the health and the children you have earned. - Fay Weldon I
