"'Buddy" Seifert Perhaps the dark, overcast night was a harbinger of what was to come. Or was it the non-functioning scoreboard and game clock. Nah, these are my Julian Eagles and they had a good week of practice. The game started off with the Eagles winning the coin toss and electing to receive the Foothills Christian Knights' opening kick Justin Flores took the Knight's opening kick at the Eagles 5 and bullied and gored his way up to the Eagles' 45. But, an illegal block in the back brought the ball back to the 14. Josh Savage completed a tight spiral to Tony Moniz for the Eagles' first first down of the evening. An unfortunately short spot of the football on a fourth on short closed out the Eagles first possession. The Knights made a short field even shorter and scored in 4 plays, including a 28 yard scamper through an Eagles defensive backfield that did a darn good impersonation of former Charger Antonio Cromartie in missing tackles. The Knights extra point kick was good and the score with an unknown amount time is Julian 0, Foothills 7. The Knights' kick went into the endzone and the Eagles start at their own 20. Josh scrambles for a quick 12 yards and an Eagles first down, but the drive fizzles and the Eagles punt. The punt goes out at Foothills' 37 and the Knights take over from that spot. The Knights pick up a quick 19 yard first down and finish off their drive three plays later with a 32-yard dash into the Eagles endZone. The extra point is good and the Knights are up by 14. Julian 0, Foothills 14. And now two of the 44 bulbs illuminating the field pop off. Josh Ernst, suited up in a lineman jersey to fill in at right tackle, took the Knights' kick at Julian Now Sister City With Horezu, Romania Cristi Nitu, Mayor of Horezu, and Kiki Harris, representing Julian Chamber of Commerce review the agreement between the two "cities" Julian officially became the Sister City of Horezu, Romania, on Thursday, September 15, in a ceremony at the weekly Horezu City Council meeting. Cristi Nitu, Mayor of Horezu, and Kiki Harris, representing Julian Chamber of Commerce President Mike Menghini, signed the accord after which both the Star Spangled Banner and the Romanian national anthem were- played. The event was covered by Romanian television and local newspapers. Horezu is a district town located in the Carpathian Mountains west of Bucharest, Romania's capital. Like Julian it is an agricultural area noted for apples and Other fruit. Also like Julian, it is developing its tourist activity. Horezu is a mountainous area and as such was never collectivized under the communists so most of its small farms are still occupied by families who have been on the land for generations. Farming is mixed and very traditional. Chickens lay their eggs in haymows, haystacks dot the fields. Many families Still use horses to transport goods in wagons and for plowing. At the same time, modernity is coming in at many points; the Internet signal is better than in areas around Julian. Tourist objectives include a UNESCO World Heritage designated " 16th century monastery, beautiful scenery, and a traditional style of pottery. Kiki Harris ~s currently in Horezu with a small group of Americans, including Bill Duffy from Sunshine Summit, who are working with the potters to learn a bit about their style. Each American has his or her "family" as the pottery is made in individual households on the "Potter's Street" winding up a hill above town using traditional methods that have been handed down through the generations. The clay is brought once a year, "worked" in machines that are now powered by small engines instead of hand cranked, but thrown on non-mechanized wheels and decorated with colors made from local materials. Horezu is also the site of some small 4H clubs. Two years ago Stacey Peyakov visited it to help the leaders learn new activities and two teenagers from Horezu have spent time in Julian. Kiki and her group have also visited other sites in the areas, including a small camp high in the mountains where they enjoyed a campfire (of a size impossible in southern California) and dinner at the treeline, dark firs below, open lichen fields above with a full moon rising over the hills to the east. The occasion was a farewell party for the area's Peace Corps Volunteer. Jokes and singing are common entertainment at Romanian parties and the Americans found themselves reaching back into memory for songs from their own history to show the Romanians that we, too, can sing.
