New branches opening in California Special Offer - Safe, Sound and Growing Personal Checking 1. The month of August, 2008 arrived and brought us very delightful weather throughout the month until the last few days of the month. We had lovely breezes throughout the month, cool late afternoons and evenings. It even was cold at night. On the 22nd day, we had a brief shewer and I had a tenth of an inch in my rain gauge. Others received more. The last few days of the month, it suddenly turned hot. We had begun to think summer was over and that Fall was beginning, but hot summer came back ending the month with hot days. 2. Things had been quiet at the town hall for a couple of months but the craft shows have begun and it's busy now. 3. Once more, we have received several lovely wedding flower arrangements left over at a wedding at ANGEL'S LANDING. We surely appreciate the Manley's giving them to us. All recipients enjoyed them. Many thanks. 4. Driving from home into town, we-have wild turkeys roaming the area and they seem to be careful as they cross the roads. There seems to be one who acts as traffic director and he waits in the middle of the road until all have crossed over before he leaves the center of the road. 5. There has been much activity in my bird garden and it has been quite frantic watching so many hummingbirds at the bottles, the finches at the Nyjer seed bags and the bluejays coming for the peanuts. It's quite a job keeping everything filled-usually twice a day. I keep thinking, that with the passing of time winter will arrive and they all will disappear until next year. 6. There has been very little tourist traffic on Main Street during the week days. On weekends mostly motorcycles are parked. Apple season is almost here and things will surely pick up. 7. Our schools opened up rather early - mid August, making the summer season seem shortened. 8. Another month is over and we are grateful to our firefighters for keeping our skies clear. 9. We're looking forward to a new month with anticipation that many exciting events will take place and hope we will get some September rains. *** I'M GLAD I LIVE IN JULIAN *** The first newspaper cartoon, a political caricature, appeared in a Washington paper, the Federal Republican, early in 1814.

Graham Wilder's "Julian Images" Reaching an Ever-Widening It has been just 4 years since Graham Wilder settled in Julian and began to seriously pursue a life-long passion for nature photography. Influenced by a background in Eastern thought and yoga meditation, Graham's approach to photography has been described as almost metaphysical in nature. His concept of reality, which transcends the purely physical and embraces the finer essence of all things, is reflected in his photographic images. "My photography is inspired as much by things felt as things seen, and I believe the images I capture are capable of conveying something of both." In 2007 Graham opened his Julian Images Gallery in a tucked-away corner at A Rose Path, where he displays samples of his fine art prints of the Julian area for friends and visitors. He later helped to found The Julian Art Gallery, also at A Rose Path, which features primarily local artists as well as more of his own work. That same year, Graham's photography received recognition at the First Annual Anza-Borrego Desert Photo Contest and at the San Diego County Fair's International Exhibition of Photography. In January of 2008, Graham was commissioned by world- renowned artist and architectural designer, James Hubbell, to shoot the photographs for his forthcoming book which, in the artist's words, will be "...a visual, poetic look at the relationship of the buildings, art, and nature of Ilan-Lael." Ilan-Lael, in Santa Ysabel, CA, has been Hubbell's home of 50 years and is the anchor property of the Ilan-Lael Foundation. Hubbell, whose wish it is that the photos will be "imminently beautiful" and give the reader a sense of how time, seasons, and weather blend together, has said of Wilder's work, "He has a special talent for capturing in his photographs the subtle nuances of light, atmosphere, and the moods of nature." Now, after 20 months and nearly 100 photo shoots at the property, Graham is "nearly satisfied" with his "attempt to capture something of the soul of this incredible place." It is hoped that the Hubbell book will be published sometime in 2010. Menghini Winery- 2 miles north of Julian on Farmers Rd.

Julian - an artists' community ' Most recently, Graham was honored by being selected as one of the photographers for the "Best of Nature Photography Show" (a juried, international PhOtography competition) at The Ordover Gallery located in the San Diego Natural History Museum. His photograph, selected from a field of over 2,300 images, is one he titled "Evening Glow and Storm," which features a well-known Julian landmark: the livestock chute just west of town, near Pine Hills Road. Of this, Graham said, "1 was especially pleased that that image was selected because it is so recognizable as being 'Julian,' and is the only one in the show from here." The Best of Nature Exhibition opened on June 27th and will end on September 13th. Of his work, Graham says: "If my images are able to earn a place in your home or in your memory, or perhaps inspire you to take beautiful photographs of your own, then I consider my efforts a success."
