Issue 2 September 12, 2012 Page 1 Sonja Kodimer, Advisor Birds Of A Feather Flock Together by Lauren VandewaUe, ASB member The beginning of a new school year brings a kind of uncertainty that can't really be avoided. Every Julian Eagle emerges from his or her shell with excitement intermingled with caution. What will await us in our new nests as freshmen, sophomores, juniors or seniors? I think all of us returning felt the strange absence of last year's seniors, immediately. The large freshman class filled the empty space with nervous expressions and tentative conversations that are so rare at Julian High. We all dove into our new schedules and new teachers and tried to get used to the idea that it's a whole new year. The retreat was different too. It was held this year at Jess Martin Park instead of Camp Marston, and for some it was difficult to embrace the rearrangement. Nevertheless, the entire student body gathered on that hot morning, decked out in superhero attire, prepared for combat with each other, the park, the heat and another year. That day changed us. I think we all sort of poked our heads out of our breaking shells for the first time, took a look around and thought, Hey, this isn't bad. There was bonding all day, from team building with peers of all grades to class competitions. The retreat was definitely greater than the sum of its parts, down to the potluck with turned out to be much better than the annual barbeque. In the end, everyone opened up. Some just got their feet wet, but others were literally drenched head to tow, letting go of all the insecurities and hopes of staying dry. We're all part of one tree now. It's nice to see students flitting around more, socializing with new people, rebuilding a school of friends as strong as last year. Maybe even stronger. This year, I'm convinced; we're not just going to soar individually. Birds can fly a whole lot farther in a group.

Good news! More students at Julian High School had passing STAR math scores than in previous years! We have much work to do, and will continue to keep you posted--but we are making progress! Julian High and Julian Junior High Staff are working together to make sure that our students understand and can apply math concepts to a proficient level. We'll get there! Three cheers for our Staff and Students for their efforts in math! I'm happy to report that our science and history STAR scores were also up significantly! We know that there are fluctuations in scores every year--and that with so few students taking these tests the final percentages of those passing can be affected by the performance of two or three students! But, I'm pleased to say that our students did an outstanding job in science and history! That doesn't happen without dedicated Teachers leading the way! Three more cheers for Staff and Students for their efforts in science and history! On a different note--we're trying to keep the "lights on" at our traditional "night-time" Homecoming Football game scheduled for Friday, October 12th. The economic downturn has also hit our ASBand funds are very low! Without $1200 we may not be able to afford to rent the lights to play the homecoming football game at the scheduled 7:00 PM start time! We're determined to raise that amount--and have had a fundraising dinner this past week to help defray the costs! Any help that you can provide would be much appreciated! I'd also like to take the opportunity to thank you for all the support (volunteer time, donations, suggestions) that you've given our school! Julian High truly is a community school--and I'm very proud to be a part of it!

[E by Larry Cox u, Old Photo Q: I have an older photo in an embossed case. I am enclosing an image of it and hope you can tell me more about it. --JacMe, Crestline, Ohio A: What you have is an Ambrotype, an early type of photograph made when a collodian wet-plate negative was mounted in front of a dark surface to produce a positive image. This process was introduced in 1851 and remained popular until about 1875. You picture appears to be from the 1870s and would probably retail for about $50. Q: I inherited a lithograph from 1908 entitled "Winter in New Hampshire." Does ff just have sentimental value or is it a collector's item? -- Christine, Apple Valley, CaM. A: When dealing with art, it is always a good idea to consult an expert. By expert, I mean a professional art appraiser, and you should, of course, expect to pay for this service. As I have mentioned in this column previously, there are two types of appraisals, verbal and written. The verbal appraisal is less expensive; the written generally necessary for insurance purposes. To find an appraiser in your region, contact the Appraisers Association of America at 386 Park Ave. South, No. 2000, New York, NY 10016, and http://www. Q: I have a large collection of salt and pepper shakers. I hope you can help me determine a fair and honest price for them and guide me to a collector. - - Ron, Amboy, IlL A: Most salt and pepper shakers sell for less than $5 a pair when found in shops and at antique malls. Like most collectibles, there are always exceptions to every rule. Selling collections in our current sluggish economy can be difficult. Have you contacted dealers in the Chicago area? That might be a good place to start. Q I have an old monkey fur cape that I played with as a child during the 1960s. It is old but rdight be worth something. How can I tell? -- Margaret, Santa Rosa, N.M. A: You have two vintage clothing stores in Albuquerque that should be helpful: Buffalo Exchange, 505-262-0098; and Off Broadway Vintage Clothing & Jewelry, 505-268-1489.
