The Only Weekly Newspaper Serving the Backcountry Communities of Julian, Cuyamaca, Santa Ysabel, Shelter Valley,   Mt. Laguna, Ranchita, Sunshine Summit, Warner Springs and Wynola. Volume 28 - Issue 07 Wednesday September 26, 2012 Julian, CA. ISSN 1937-8416 56th Annual Melodrama This years play is "B" Mine Forever or I Get the Mine and You Get the Shaft. Lovely Melody Moonstruck, her good friend Prudence Poorhouse, and handsome hero Digger Malone, all own gold mines. At least they are supposed to be gold mines but so far all they have come up with is a small amount of silver. And they need to strike it rich so Melody can marry Digger. Then why is the evil villain known as Blackie trying to obtain the mines by hook or crook (Mostly crook)? And can Blackie really trust his accomplice, wicked La Verne Laredo? Between acts will be an "olio" (variety show) featuring junior cancan dancers, a variety of local talent acts, and/or the famous Triangle Club Chorus (a.k.a. Julian Floozies), entertaining with hilarious old-time songs. Olio acts may differ for each performance.' The audience is always encouraged to participate by booing the villain, cheering the hero, and crying "awwww" for the sweet heroine. Sometimes the characters need warning or advice -- but keep it clean -- it's a family show! Participation in the all-volunteer amateur production requires a huge time commitment, which has been shared for more than half a century by almost every family in Julian. Former director Bobbi Green, who was involved in the melodrama for 46 or so years, thirty five of them as director, has finally decided to retire and has turned her director's chair and megaphone over to Garnette kNech who has been producer and director of most of our Julian High School plays. The melodrama is presented every weekend throughout October during Julian Apple Days, a great community effort that demonstrates the lively spirit of our town. Proceeds from the melodrama go toward scholarships for Julian graduating seniors and for sponsorship of local youth organizations and activities. Profits are also used to help sponsor local events such as the old-fashioned 4th of July Parade and a visit from Santa Claus to the Julian Town Hall for the children's Christmas party. www.JulianNews.com HI.N ! Motorcycle, Accident Causes Fire by Bill Everett , i:; :i The view of smoke from the Town Hall photo courtesy Julian Chamber of Commerce Another Bullet Dodged - As the sun set last Friday evening the acrid smell of smoke permeated every household in Whispering Pines. By that time however, aircraft and ground crews had contained a fire that started earlier in the day as a result of a motorcycle missing a turn on Farmer Road and ending up in the dry grass and brush. Its hot engine immediately set fire to the vegetation. The rider was transported to the hospital as his bike was turned to ashes. Within seconds, the fire raced up the steep slope to the east and soon reached the crest between Farmer's Road and Highway 78. At that point, the fire was in extremely thick brush and even timber. Flame lengths reached nearly 100 feet as fire authorities mobilized all available resources, It took over ten minutes for aircraft to reach the scene, but soon four aerial tankers out of Ramona were joined by two helicopters in an intense air attack. Immediately, Farmer Road was closed, as well as Wynola Road heading west from Highway 78. Soon, Wynola Road was re-opened to divert traffic while Highway 78 was closed. Fire bosses recommended the evacuation of approximately 25 nearby residences, but apparently few if any heeded the advice. Perhaps the only saving grace was that the wind out of the west was gentle and did not easily drive the fire downslope towards Highway 78. This could have been a catastrophe for Whispering Pines and beyond, but again a bullet was dodged. Fire crews remained on the site overnight, mopping up hot spots and assuring no chance of re- ignition. At least 15 acres were burned, within feet of the lightning fire that erupted north of Camp Stevens several weeks ago. Fire season so far this year has been challenging, with the most difficult times potentially still to come. Music On The Mountain Jazz Piano Featured Tuesday Friends of the Julian Library is proud to present renowned jazz pianist Mikan Ztatkovich for a Music on the Mountain concert on Tuesday, October 2, at 6:00 pm at the Julian Branch Library! When watching Mikan Zlatkovich play the piano, the first thing you will notice is his mastery of the keyboard - the way he expresses himself with confidence, freedom, and creativity. He has the ability to bring his fellow performers and the audience into the moment: discovering unexpected harmonies, making music that encompasses the essence of jazz. Born in Pristina, Serbia, Mikan listened to American radio in Eastern Europe as a young child. His father, an amateur guitarist, exposed him to the jazz greats and he was instantly fascinated. Together, they captured this Julian News . PO Box 639 Julian, CA, 92036 Change Service Requested A u.s.

Eagles Get Their Wings Clipped by H. "Buddy" Seifert' Sometimes you just wish that you had a "do-over" button. I know two Eagles that wish they did. The young men have paid their penalties by getting benched for a major portion of of the game and they've done their crime, paid their time and made their sincere apologies to their teammates. To publish their names would not be to anyone's interest, so we'll leave it at that. Our team didn't do so well in Escondido on Friday night And it started badly at 7:20 on Friday morning. Two of our starters I. dcided to take up a friend's offer to buy them breakfast to celebrate a recent birthday. Unfortunately they were scheduled as office or teacher's aides for their first period class. So they ditched. They did make it back to school for their remaining classes. It came to a head during the pre- game team meetings and the following questions were posed to the entire team: 1. Should the players be benched for the entire game? 2. Should the players be benched as starters, but only allowed to play on special teams? 3. Or just let their punishment from the School Administration suffice? The team could reach no consensus, so Coach White had to put his Solomon hat. Not only would the boys be subject to the punishment from Mr. Schlottman, but also they would play only on special teams. They might be allowed to return to the game only in the latter stages of the second half. If this had been a motocross event, Julian would have won. They lost the first half soundly but did the only scoring in the second half. It's how you finish the second half that counts in professional motorsports. Unfortunately, not in prep football. The Calvin Christian Crusaders won the coin toss and elected to receive the opening kick-off. Brian Garcia put his leg into the kick and the ball disappeared into the darkness in the Crusaders endzone. First and ten at the Crusaders 20. Calvin's first run up the gut was squashed after one yard but the inexperienced Eagles defensive line leaked like a sieve on their next play allowing a 53-yard slice through the other side of the defense. There was an additional 10 yards tacked on because of a late Eagles hit. They couldn't capitalize on their gains and after two runs to nowhere, an incompletion and a delay of game penalty, shanked their field goal attempt low and wide right. Eagles ball on downs at their own 20. Garcia picked up a quick first down with an 11-yard scamper through heavy traffic and on the next play, picked up 1 more yard. Hunter was under heavy pressure on his next two passing attempts and there was no first down on this series. Brian came back in and booted a high end over end punt that went out of bounds on Calvin's 42. The Crusader's first rush was met in the backfield for a 2-yard loss, but they came back with a 38-yard slice and a first down at the Eagles 22. They picked up another 12 and finished of the drive with 10-yard pass into the Eagles endzone. Their PAT was good; with 5:22 left in the 1st quarter it's Calvin 7, Julian 0. Calvin's kicker was rather weak and their attempted onside kick went straight into the hands of the up linemen, Skyler Brothers. Skyler wrapped up the ball on Calvin's 49. The Eagle's young o-line was having one of those nights and Brian got caught 5 yards deep for a loss. Under even heavier pressure than the first series, Hunter was forced to throw it away, just missing Kellen Regalado and twin Austin McConnell for incompletions. The Crusader's got a finger on Brian's boomer, and the ball kicked out of bounds at Calvin's 38. Calvin's offense got on a roll and put together two first down rushes and a galloping 31-yard sprint and scored. Their PAT was flat so no joy there. Calvin 13, Julian 0. Calvin's anemic kick off flip- flopped to the Eagles 39 and was recovered by Jaren Bell for no return. Actually not a bad starting position when the entire team is available. Brian's first rush of the 2nd quarter went for 2 yards in heavy traffic, but on his second, he was captured in the backfield for a 19- yard loss. To add insult to injury, the Eagles were flagged for an illegal procedure, but the penalty was declined. Hunter couldn't find an open receiver and was continued on page 7 Julian Eagles Athletics Football Friday, August 31 L 22-30 Borrego Friday September 7 L 41.- 0 Hamilton (Anza) Friday, September 14 W 34-10 , Lutheran Friday, September21 L 42- 13 Calvin Christian Friday, September 28 HOME Sherman Indian School Teacher & Staff Appreciation Day 3PM Saturday, October 6 away Classical Academy at Orange Glen HS 7 PM Friday, October 12 HOME Calvary Christian HOMECOMING 2:30 or 7PM Friday, October 19 HOME San Pasqual Academy Senior Night - 2:30 or 7PM Friday, October 26 away Borrego 7PM Friday, November2 away Vincent Memorial 7PM Volleyball Thursday, August 30 W 3-1 San Diego Jewish Academy Tuesday, September 4 W3-2 Classical Academy High Thursday, September 6 W3-1 Ocean View Academy Saturday, September 8 Joshua Springs Tournament Third Place Wednesday, September 19 W3-O Calexico Adventist Mission School Thursday, September 20 W 3- 2 Borrego Springs High School Saturday, September 22 1-3 Pacific Ridge Tournament Monday, September 24 away Escondido Adventist 5:30 Wednesday, September 26 away Vincent Memorial High Wednesday, October 3 away Calipatria High School Friday, October 5 HOME Mountain Empire High School Wednesday, October 10 away Warner Springs High School Thursday, October 11 away Calexico Adventist Mission Wednesday, October 17 away Borrego Springs High School Friday, October 19 HOME Vincent Memorial High School Monday, October 22 HOME Warner High School CrossCountry Saturday, September 15 Mt.Carmel Movin Shoes Invitational Friday, September 21 Citrus League #1 at Julian Friday, October 5 Citrus League #2 at Lake Morena Friday, October 19 Citrus League #3 at Guajome Park Friday, November 2 Citrus League #4 at Borrego Friday, November 9 Citrus League Finals at Lake Morena Saturday, November 17 * San Diego CIF Finals at Morley Field Thursday October 4, 5:30pm Behind Julian Fitness Center Chamber's Monthly Mixer 00losted Doves www'julianca'com.! ....
