Is She Really a Mortician or J00IAN TI00E .ie 1 The Birth of , , "Out of the Box Players"by Juliana Stewart ' Local-er00nce Director, Out of the Box Players * Tree Consulting and Inspection * Long Term Forest Maintenance and Planning * Hazardous Removal and Precision Felling * Ornamental Pruning and Lacing * Brush Clearing and Chipping FREE ES TIMA TES Licensed and Bonded Fully Insured for Your Protection ERIC DAUBER License #945348 H: 760-765-2975  C: 760-271-9585 PC Box 254 JULIAN, CA. 92036 WE-869OA I often hear the following - "Are you really a mortician or the mortuary bookkeeper?", "Is that why you wear black?", "You have your Master's in what?", "What is Out of the Box Players?" The list goes on so I am going to answer those questions thus by way of introduction. I am a licensed funeral director and embalmer (in California and West Virginia), earned my Master's in Theatre Arts (production/ acting), own Bonham Bros. & Stewart Mortuary and Cremation Service, in Ramona, along with my husband Jim (who I met at a Disneyland Hotel funeral convention), founded Out of the Box Players to give myself (and others) a much needed creative outlet, am a home schooling mom of two and a life long thespian (look it uP0. Out of the Box Players was born this year- though, like a child, I had talked about its inception, pondering it for quite some time. I am sure I was off on one of my "we need local, live theatre" tangents and my husband suggested (brilliantly I might add) that I use our funeral home chapel as the venue. WOW... what a concept! I first directed some small plays, within our home school group, and found that a number of children were interested and quite talented. Now came the time to choose a name for the theatre troupe. I was looking for something that not only had a little flair but also bespoke of our rehearsal/performance space. Once again Jim rose to the occasion and suggested Out of the Box Players. I loved it! Over the next few months we added stage lights to our chapel (thanks Morn) and cosmetically updated the mortuary. Then came the stage. We purchased a professional stage that goes in and out with ease. Therefore we can easily stage a theatrical production or move it out for one of our memorial or funeral services. We are truly a multi-purpose facility. We opened auditions to the youth of the area and have incorporated adult cast shows into our repertoire. The support has been amazing. Since March we have hosted two shows featuring guest artists, staged a youth production of Aladdin, which sold out two nights, put up a reader's theatre version of The Haunting of Hill House (like you have never seen reader's theatre) and are currently in production with three shows - A Pair of One Act Comedies - Lemonade and Blind Woman's Bluff, which performs Sept 6 and 7 and our youth production of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow which performs Oct 4 and 5. Our pool of talent is incredible. Check out our blog at www.outoftheboxplayers. to see rehearsal photos and get show information. We are committed to offering quality, affordable theatre for youths and adults. Oh, one last thing - I do wear a lot of black but have since I was a kid! So, no, it has nothing to do with being a mortician, probably has more to do with my dramatic sensibilities. So there you have it - a little about me and a little about our budding troupe. Come see our next show and share in the dream. When Hell Came To Town Looking Back At The Cedar Fire Publishers Note: Over the next several weeks we are inviting residents to give us their reflections, memories and experiences of the 2003 "Cedar Fire "' How did you cope, did your planning for emergency work out a s you thought it would, if you lost your house - did you rebuild? We know for some the experience is still too painful, for others it might be a chance to express your feelings and emotions after reflection. Our first in what we hope to be a series follows.

While fighting the fire around the house something went horribly wrong. My brother-in-law, who had fought fires before, got caught in the wrong place at the wrong time. He was badly burned and was taken to Julian to go to the burn center in a helicopter. Back home, even though we were paying good attention to the fire, never did we think it would ever come at us from the west. Our son and his daughters said the plan was to load our fifth wheel up with our important things which they did. My husband had lived in the same area for almost seventy-four years and had also fought many fires but still he wasn't worried about the direction it would take. Our son was the worried one. He watched from one vantage point to another. He finally came by and told his father, "It's not good. You and mom can't stay here much longer. So when I tell you .to leave -- do it", My husband and I had never ran from a the fifty- four years we had been married, but since neither of us could get around very well we agreed to go. This next part is the purpose of this story. I am now eighty two years old and because of my son's courage in 2003 I still have my home to live in. When the flames came over the hill behind our home in 03 my husband and I left, and our son stayed. He had a bulldozer borrowed from his cousin, a shovel and was determined that our wouldn't burn and either would his grandfather's home next door. At the same time another member of the family was on the other side of our house and was going to save the home of my brother- in-law who had been burned. Try and visualize a wall of tire coming at you and you have no help and you keep running a bulldozer back and forth trying to make a bigger and better firebreak than you already have. At the same time similar things were happeninq at the home next door. After doing the best he could with the dozer our son ran for many hours with the shovel and some buckets of water to put continued on page 10
