Rohlf usually performs with his group Shawn Rohlf and the Buskers. What is a busker? The original definition of the term is a person who entertains in public for donations. The group, Shawn Rohlf and the Buskers, took shape in 2001 as a result of busking at the Hillcrest Farmer's Market, but all the members of the group have been performing for years. The sound of the band is Americana, with influences of folk, old country, bluegrass, rock, and Irish. Growing up on a dirt road outside of the small town of Elk River, Minnesota, Shawn Rohlf chicken coop singing to a brood of hens and a rooster named Bruno. He knew right then show biz was going to be his career path. He started guitar lessons at age nine and at the same time auditioned for The Land of Lakes Choirboys. He was accepted and during the following years appeared on three albums, performed in many concerts, numerous radio and television appearances and toured a fair portion of the United States. Shawn headed south for the "big city" of Minneapolis and cut his teeth playing in his folk- punk band, the Hillwilliams, in the then thriving music scene of the 1980's. From there he made his way around the country, setting continued on page 8 Shawn Rohlf as seen at this years Back Country Jamboree Eagles Come Up Short Against Crusaders by H. "Buddy" Seifert Thunder and Lightning, in the Sky and on the Field Your Eagles took their field on Friday afternoon under some pretty ominous clouds. Mother Nature was sending a thick band of thunderstorms our way. She fizzled but the game rocked. The Calvin Christian Crusaders made the trip up from Escondido for a non-league game with our Eagles. The Color Guard from Julian's American Legion Lincoln Deming Post 468 presented the Colors as a trio of Julian High School girls sang the National Anthem. Our guys won the pregame coin toss and elected to receive the opening kick. The Crusaders pooched a short onsides kick that they recovered at the Julian 49. The Crusaders started their drive with a 5-yard loss when Josh Savage broke through Calvin's line and nailed the back for a 5 yard loss. After a Crusader first down, Brett Teusch stretched out and almost intercepted a Calvin pass. The Crusaders drive fizzled out and turned the ball over to the Eagles on downs. Our Eagles opened their first possession with an 8,yard dash by Kellen Regalado. Savage followed up with a quick 5-yard toss to Tony Moniz for the Eagles' first 1st down of the day. Alas, the Eagles could only muster another 4 yards on this possession and punted away to Calvin's 35. Calvin couldn't move on the Eagles defense and were forced to punt. The kick sailed and bounced to the Eagles 3. Ouch! The Eagles could only muster a yard after two dropped passes and then got hit with a false start and the necessity to punt. And punt they did, to their own 40. The Crusaders picked up three first downs against a disjointed Eagles defense and scored their first TD of the afternoon. Their PAT failed and with 4:38 left in the first quarter, Calvin is up by 6. Calvin Christian 6, Julian 0. At this point, Mother Nature teased the field with a brief spritz of continued on page 9 Get Ready To Boo And Cheer, Melodrama Time Is Here by Terry Ross Julian's annual melodrama, "Felony Most Fowl" or "Frauds of a Feather" opens this Saturday night, October 1 at 7:00 p.m. at Julian's Town Hall.

On September 20th, the garden held a ribbon-cutting to inaugurate its rainwater harvesting project. The system, which was installed by Building Green Futures of San Diego, captures rainwater from our maintenance building and stores 3,000 gallons of it in two large cisterns. As needed, water can be pumped out to irrigate the entire garden of vegetables, fruit, herbs and flowers. It is an ambitious project in water conservation and is meant to be a demonstration and teaching site for residents and schools throughout the county who would like to learn about water catchment. A sign on the back of the gazebo explains how the system works.
