The month of August 2010arived and brought us a mixed schedule of weather. The second day looked like a promise of rain which never happened. We had several days of cold weather the second week. Cold nights and mornings. The third week it warmed up and the rest of the month we had some very hot days, sometimes in the mid- nineties. On the 28th day it suddenly turned very cold until the end of the month. 2. We were very pleased to receive mixed bouquets of roses and carnations as well as wonderful casseroles from Angel's Landing (now Meadow View Inn). Our thanks for these donations. We are very grateful at the town hall. 3. Our thanks to Laurel Granquist for her donations of food for our food bank, especially canned fish. 4. Things have been fairly quiet at the town hall but now the craft shows are starting up and things will be busy the rest of the year. 51 JULIAN OUTREACH REPORT: Our Project Pass It On continues at full speed. We keep receiving so much to give away at our distribution days. One day I had a call from a lady named Margie who said she was in need of a washer and dryer. We did not have them available at the time. I told her we had a piano available; a lady in Pine Hills had one to donate to us. She got excited and said she would love to have the piano. She lost hers during the Cedar Fire. I gave her the lady's telephone number and she promptly went to see the piano. Turns out it was like the one she lost in the fire. A couple of weeks later the piano was delivered to her. She cried; her friends who were there cried and the fellows who delivered it were on the verge of tears as well. They were tears of joy. We are always glad when we can fill a special want. 6. There have been some unusual things happening around my yard. I have three apple trees growing in my backyard. There is only one apple at the top of one of the trees almost ten feet high. Last year I had several apples I enjoyed. Just one this year! I guess I am not a good caretaker of trees. I don't know what happened. Then a couple of months ago I finally took time to buy and plant a lovely mixture of colorful flowers in my huge flower pots around my deck. They have all been doing fine but something else kept growing in three of the pots, long stems that kept getting taller. Soon one reached four feet high and a beautiful sunflower opened up. It is about six inches in diameter. Then behind it, another sunflower opened up with two sunflowers behind it all on one stem. The third flower pot only had sunflowers - about eight of them blooming. Strange place for sunflowers and which I did not plant. My lovely red rose bush suddenly had so many very gorgeous roses. What was strange about them is that they all bloomed against each other on the right side of the bush - all clustered together and none on the other side. My white rose bush has somewhat slowed down but continues blooming throughout the bush. All very lovely.. Lovely poppies continue blooming ar various places in my yard and I have enjoyed them. 7. Throughout the area, many sunflowers continue blooming as the predominant flower in my travels into town. 8. We are very grateful to our fire department personnel for the prompt action taken at the various fires throughout the month. We also appreciate the Julian-Cuyamaca Fire activity Log published in our paper weekly. 9. We also appreciate the Arrest Reports by our law enforcement personnel. We are amazed at the number of people arrested on suspicion of being drunk. We see occasional repeat of names. It's alarming. 10. We have survived the main part of hot summer weather and it has been a good safe month and now we can look forward to a new month and all it holds for us. *** I'm Glad I Live In Julian *** /// The word taboo comes from the Polynesian "tapu," meaning "something sacred, special, dangerous or unclean." New Books At The Library EBT Here The Julian News 3 BEER, WINE & Monday -- Friday 8 am - 6 pm Saturday 8 am - 6 pm Sunday 9 am - 5 pm It is great to have a Friends group that supports its library the way ours does. The Friends of the Julian Library has a book-buying subcommittee that meets every 6-8 weeks to recommend books and DVD's to be purchased for this library. The best part is once it is decided what to purchase, they call in the order to our book supplier and the items are shipped to the branch a few days later. We process the books for check out and put them on our "new" bookshelves. If you were to browse through the new books, you would be amazed and delighted to know how many of them come from the Friends of the Julian Library. Your membership dues, book donations and purchases at the FOL bookstores, along with cash donations fund the Friends of the Library group. The Friends of the Library recently gave $2,500 to the matching fund program of the San Diego County Library that is allocated to purchase additional DVD's, magazines, and books beyond what the County Library is able to provide. The Matching Fund program is a great investment. Where else can you a get 100% return on your investment? The County of San Diego equally matches the $2,500 donated with its own $2,500 to make it $5,000 going toward materials at the branch. Individuals are also allowed to make tax-deductible donations to this program. For more information, ask at the branch. If you have suggestions for books or other library materials to be purchased, feel free to give your suggestions to librarian, Colleen Baker, or to one of the committee members, Julie Olfe, Carol Nagy Jacklin, Nancy Pickering or Ron Granquist. THANK YOU to the Friends of the Library for their tremendous support! September Art At The Library Romanian art from the 1920s and 1930s is on display at the Julian Library for the month of September. The period between World War I and World War II in Romania was a "golden age" for the arts. Bucharest, the capital city, was graced by beautiful buildings and monuments and became known as the "Paris of the East." George Enescu and other composers flourished while operas and concerts were performed nightly. There were also many artists, some trained in the West and some in Romania's schools of art and ateliers. These paintings give a glimpse of the kind of art that was available. By chance most of these paintings are "representational"--that is, you can tell what they are about--but abstract and modern art were also popular. Today in the US most people only think of "Dracula" or Nadia Komanich and former Olympic triumphs when they hear "Romania" and "Transylvania." We hope these paintings from the Skagen Ranch Studio- Gallery Collection, owned by Kiki Skagen Harris will give another picture of that country. 760 765 3200 2117 Main Street tore Wide ummer Clearance A Boutique of Unique Clothing, Jewelry and Gifts (700o) Presenting The Julian HS ASB Rewards Card by Leah Keane ASB Secretary If you are a parent with a child participating in a sport at Julian Union High School, or a student- who regularly attends various school events, then you are go- ing to love what the ASB has to offer.
