JULIAN-NEWS-"NUDES" IN PALM SPRINGS As a spoof of our habit of publishing vacation photos (with Julian residents holding our newspaper), these local residents posed for the above photo at the Orbit Inn in Palm Springs. In her own words, Romano's restaurant owner and Julian resident Carole Sansregret put it best, "As a twist to the 'Julian News vacation pictures,' we decided to do a 'Julian Nudes' vacation picture. A new use for the Julian News...hiding our imperfections! Good friends. Good cheersll" In front row left to right: Toni Menghini, Steve Sheppard, Carole Sansregret, and Kathy Rosenow.

Witnesses (paid informants) reported to me long before you got home. We have spies everywhere. -- M.J.C. JULIAN PARAMEDICS GET THEIR "WINGS" by Stephen R. Sheppard, Contributing Writer Perhaps you were looking skyward two weeks ago Sunday and saw a firefighter dangling seventy- five feet below a large helicopter as it flew over Julian and landed at the Julian Fire Station. The San Diego Regional Fire and Rescue Helicopter and its crew had come to Julian for a joint exercise with the members of the Julian/Cuyamaca Fire Company. The helicopter is a multi faceted piece of hardware that is espe- cially suited to performing in the backcountry. It provides both mountain and water rescue capa- bilities with fire-fighting duties, not only by supplying water drops but also by being able to insert a six-man, "hand crew" into the center of a wild land fire. The helicopter unit The San Diego Regional Fire & Rescue helicoptor approaches was formed late last year the Julian Fire Station. as a joint effort between San Diego Fire and a number of corporate sponsors including Scripps Hospital. Its mission is to provide and augment rescue operations, not to Firefighterdangles 75 feet below serve as an air ambulance. With a helicoptor over Julian. crew of ten including the pilot, the craft can pluck injured persons off the side of cliffs such as Stonewall Peak or lower a paramedic with all the emergency gear necessary to save a life into a steep canyon in a fraction of the time that it would take for a rescue crew to hike in. The three full-time paramedics, members of the Julian/ Cuyamaca Fire Department -- Carolina Finch, Matt Rios, and Kris Yeary -- were selected and have successfully completed the accelerated accreditation course this past week. Each will now serve once a month as the "air medic" with the helicopter crew. The training included their mastery of rappelling seventy-five feet from the helicopter skid to the ground, air rescue operations, aircraft safety, and the operation of the external winch to raise an injured patient in a litter from the ground to the inside of the aircraft. These three individuals donated their time for this highly specialized training. They now join the flight crew drawn from San Diego Fire Department and other fire agencies from around the county and the Sycuan Golden Eagle "Hot Shots" in providing an additional level of emergency medical service and fire-fighting capabilities to our mountain community. i i i i GETTING TO Rappelling training for rescue operations has been completed by three JuliardCuyamaca Fire Department paramedics. | VOLLEYBALL HELL WEEK GOES KNOW YOU LAURA LEWIS - OUR WONDERFUL OFF WITH A BANG!!
