It's where Columbus landed, the Pilgrims, the Dutch, British, French, and the Germans among others. The Spanish were in the south and Native Americans were invented on the east coast or so I thought. Of course in my narrow thinking for most of my life, things didn't even get going till the 1770 something's. Welt, I'm reading 1491 now and boy is it opening my eyes as to the Americas prior to Columbus. Charles C. Mann the author, recreates the sophistication of the indigenous people and how densely populated the northern and southern hemisphere was for more than 10,000 years before anyone even knew that anyone was here. Anyone from Europe anyway, except for maybe the Vikings. He also writes about how the Spanish, particularly in South and Central America and in the American Southwest influenced historical events particularly in the conquest, of the Indians. It would be too simplistic to say the Spanish conquered what may have been millions of natives living in sophisticated societies without firing a shot but the truth of the matter would have been the diseases they brought with them to which they had immunities but the natives did not. The Spanish were everywhere in the Southern Hemisphere and the American west conquering lands and people as well as accumulating vast troves of gold and silver. They were here, in the Julian area and we pay homage, in the form of a monument on the Sunrise Highway to one of, oh let's call him a local guy, Pedro Fages. Fages came from Spain and into California at San Diego in 1769 in charge of a military advance party for the esteemed explorer Gaspar de Portola. Fages was an explorer, frontiersman, hunter and excelled at horsemanshiP as well. He was a hot-tempered, quarrelsome man but popular with the people around him. He was well educated and devoted to his service to Spain. He became Military Governor of Alta California in 1770-1774 and again in 1782-1791. Paraphrasing from the monument on Sunrise Highway, on October 29, 1772 (ahem, this was before our Declaration of Independence and the Spanish had been here for, pushing three hundred years) Fages headed east from San Diego searching for army deserters. He made the first entry by a European into Oriflamme Canyon (Anza Borrego Desert). From there Fages traveled through Cajon Pass around the Mojave Desert and Central Valley and eventually reached Mission San Luis Obispo and' as a result discovered the Colorado Desert and the San Joaquin Valley. Historically speaking the local natives, the Kumeyaay have by some estimates beeh in this immediate area for 12,000 years. The evidence of their existence is everywhere. As an example, right behind my shop, beneath ancient oaks and adjacent to a spring are dozens of grinding holes. Presumably, they would grind the acorns to make meal to aid in their sustenance. Judging by the depth of some of these holes, this site could have been in use for centuries. Pointed out to me by someone who was more experienced in the field, were the hundreds of pottery fragments that littered the area. It was obvious to her that someone had scavenged the site a long time ago, as there were no large pieces evident. The temptation to pick up a few of the shards is overpowering but apparently the bad juju that can result is something you supposedly don't want to tempt. Nevertheless I do inspect the site from time to time, particularly after a hard rain to see what treasure may have been unearthed. So besides Drue Bailey and Mike Julian, our little spot on earth has a lot of history going for it particularly if you are willing to investigate the complex societies of native people prior to the scourge of epidemics in the early 1500s and the Conquistadors of the centuries following that. I'll get back to you when I'm done with Mann's book. On another topic, I can't begin to tell you how touched I was by the large turnout for the ceremony to honor our POWs and those from all wars that were missing in action (MIAs). A lot of folks showed up that weren't Legion members. There were a lot of kids there as well that would go to the Legion's goal of educating and handing down American tradition to our youth. The Auxiliary sponsors the next big event at the Legion, the Annual Chili Cook-Off on Saturday, September 27. There might be a few spots open for contestants. If you're interested contact the Legion at 760 765- 0126. Otherwise you're invited to attend for the tasting, the music on the patio and the great "craft beers" and terrific hot dogs (the, perfect accoutrement) for great chili. On Sunday, October 5th the Sons host the Senior Class in a benefit breakfast to help them in their efforts to fund their activities. If a kid asks, buy a ticket. It'll do a Iotof good. Friday, October 10 the Women's Auxiliary will host a benefit dinner for the Julian Pioneer Museum. Chicken Picata is what's on the menu. See a museum member or get your tickets at the door, Serving from 5:30 until sold out. Sunday, October 12, is another BIG annual event as the Sons host the Warrior Foundation with a great event that brings locals and visitors together in an event that never fails to raise lots of money for this great organization. If you can't be there for some reason, you can still contribute through the Sons by going to their website at www. and clicking on the donation button. Hear Ye! Hear Ye! A couple of quotes from one of our founding fathers that are as app cab e today as they were over two hundred years ago. "A coward is much more exposed to quarrels than a man of spirit." "Men were not born with saddles on their backs to be ridden by the privileged few." -- Thomas Jefferson Weather Monitoring continued from page 3 occur," said Forest Service meteorologist Tom Rolinski. "This tool will directly benefit fire agencies by allowing us to better anticipate what kinds of resources may be needed, as well as where and when we could face the greatest challenges." The new system gauges the potentiality and probable intensity of wildfire events by examining offshore wind flows and other factors, relying on three decades of Southern California weather data to pattern forecasts. SDG&E Vice President Dave Geier said the concept came to life following the destructive wildfires that swept through parts of San Diego County seven years ago. "1 asked my team to come up with something similar to the Categories to rate hurricanes that could be used to classify Santa Ana wind events based on their potential to spread a major fire, which would help us in making operational decisions to protect our system and our customers," Geier said.
