There's plenty of free parking for the Apple Days Festival available at Menghini Winery, located at the end of Farmer Road, about 2 miles out of downtown Julian. Last year's festival attracted over 5,000 visitors. There will also be a variety of other events throughout the town and surrounding areas this weekend, including U-pick apple orchards, the Old Time Melodrama & Olio performance at Town Hall, wine tours, a Country Market at Wynola Junction Antiques, and entertainment by Julian's Doves & Desperadoes.

She keeps her plans for the election under her hat. Amanda has been performing in theatre since the first grade. Acting is a passion and she has enjoyed being a part of the melodrama for a number of years, as a junior cancan dancer and choreographer, Triangle Club Chorus member, and character in the cast.

Her heart is straight and true, but her mouth gets all tied up in knots. Sandra is enjoying her latest wig and a fun role in her seventh melodrama, which she assisted in rewriting. After drama classes in high school, she took a break from acting, but began performing again 30 years ago as a ventriloquist, puppeteer, and Gospel illusionist. This December, for the second ),ear running, she will reprise her role as director of Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol at the Julian Town Hall. She enjoys life in Wynola with her husband Jerry, daughter Selah, and a passel of pets. CHEER THE HERO Daniel J Reese plays Judge Chadwick Cheatham, a hanging judge from Florida, known as Hangin' Chad. Puts a few new jogs in the old political lines. His shady past is bedimmed by a darker future. A dastardly villain. Daniel is a 23-year Julian resident whose recent performances include lead roles with "Once Upon a Star Productions" out of Las Vegas, Nevada, and a starring role in the hit comedy series Vigilantes. Film work includes Sand Farm, From the South, and the 2007 Best Actor Award at the Almost Famous Film Festival. This is the first time Daniel has had a role in the Julian Melodrama. Anthony Soriano Chuck Borde, beloved sChoolteacher, he knows Julian City is not letter perfect, but he wants it to be the county seat. He is our hero. This is Anthony's first melodrama. Other stage performances have been in Annie Get Your Gun, the 2009 Julian production of A Christmas Carol, and Crazy for You. He greatly enjoys stage acting and would like to continue on with the challenge of this art, in the hope of having an acting career someday. The melodrama has been his favorite production so far, and he has enjoyed meeting new people as well as stretching himself in his role as an 1890s Julian schoolteacher. Karen Winn plays Mrs. Lotta Potts, keeps the saloon in Julian City, but is more to be pitied than censured. Raising her two orphaned nieces. Karen is new both to Julian and to the stage--at least, to the spotlight. She has always enjoyed being a backstage person, but is honored to have been invited to participate in the melodrama. Her dad Kirby Winn has been involved with the melodrama for many years as Tiffany Christie plays Gloria Singer, the preacher's daughter, also unmarried, a singer who lives life on a high note. Tiffany is a California native who recently moved to Julian with her family, after spending the past six years in Washington. She has acted before and is also a vocalist. She is enjoying life in Julian very much and is happy to be raising her two boys here. Joshua Christie is Judge Aloysius Knott, he tries to keep election fraud to a minimum and finds more than gold in the Julian City hills. Josh was born and raised in San Diego. He took part in many high school productions, including The Princess Bride, in which he played Inigo Montoya. He and his wife Tiffany are enjoying being a part of the melodrama and the Julian community. Amanda Crosswhite plays Honey Potts, Mrs. Potts' niece. Sweet, but has too often seen the wrong side of the saloon door. While Amanda is not new to the Town Hall stage (having made her debut in last season's A Christmas Carol), this is the 14-year-old's first time participating in the melodrama. A life-long resident of Julian, she is a home-schooled high school freshman. She enjoys riding her bike, reading, texting her friends, and being on stage! Her mother is in the Triangle Club Chorus performing between the acts. continued t)n page l O BEWARE THE OLIO Julian News PO Box 639 Julian CA, 92036 Change Service Requested #003'BIII Permil Iio. 30 III J...., c, III II,l,,I,,I,,,,Ih,lh,lh,,,,ll,,hlll,,,I,,h,,hl,lh,,I,,ll Small Town Papers TFN 5026 California Ave SW Seattle WA 98136-1208 . i I "Proposition L" Bond Informational Meeting Tuesday October 5 by Cara Couvillion, Principal of Julian Union High School On Tuesday, October 5 at 6:00 pm, the high school will host an Informational Meeting on the Prop L Bond Measure followed by an Open House in the Multi-Purpose Room. The purpose of this meeting is to answer community members' questions about the Bond Measure that has been placed on the November 2nd ballot. This article will give you a summary of the JUHS School Board's reasons for voting to have this measure placed on the ballot. If you have further questions after reading this article, you are invited to our Bond Informational Meeting, along with your friends and neighbors who reside in Julian, Cuyamaca, Shelter Valley, Santa Ysabel, Mesa Grande, etc. to hear more details so you can make an informed decision when voting. The purpose of this bond measure is to help the school district raise funds to renovate the currently condemned classroom building which housed science labs and other classrooms. In 1999-2000, renovations were completed to the main buildings on campus. In May 2004, an inspection showed that there were many instances of faulty construction done to these buildings during the renovation. The district has made many efforts to alleviate the issues, including leasing portables for classroom use, renovating one of the buildings with reserve funds, and lawsuits against the construction company and other entities involved in the faulty renovation. Since the students were forced out, the science "labs" have been portable classrooms not suitable for many science experiments. The district feels it is time to move forward in rebuilding the science laboratories and other classrooms our students deserve. On May 26, 2010 we appealed to the state and were granted.a conceptual approval for Facility Hardship. This means the state will grant us $1.85 million dollars, IF we can come up with matching funds and approved plans within 18 months. The only way the school district can raise the necessary funds (about $2 million) in this short amount of time is through a bond measure. The district is proposing a Prop 39 Bond. This bond requires 55% majority to pass, and requires an Oversight Committee to be formed once the bond is passed to oversee both the construction and the finances of construction. The bond payment for residents would not exceed $30 per $100,000 property value for the life of the bond, and would not begin until the current bond is complete in about 2020. The bond payment would extend through about 2045. Recently I have been to several organizations in the community to present information regarding the Prop L Bond Measure. If you would like me to speak to your organization, please call the high school at (760)765-0606 x108. I also encourage you to attend the meeting on October 5 at the high school, when we will also give you a tour of our campus and classrooms. Music On The Mountain Library Welcome San Diego Keyboardist, Songwriter Marie Haddad isn't one to talk much about herself. Not that she is socially withdrawn or secretive - that would never fit her upbeat, energetic personality. It's more like Marie doesn't feel the need to explain who she is - listen to her music, she would tell you - it explains everything so well. Her music is how she best engages her outer world. On Tuesday, October 5th, Ms. Haddad brings her diamond- clear voice, heartfelt original songs and piano mastery to the Julian Library for a special Music on the Mountain Concert performance. The show begins at 6:00 PM in the acoustically blessed Main Library Room. The public is welcome to this free event, sponsored by the Friends of the Julian Library. Refreshments will be served and a raffle for Marie Haddad's CD "A Beautiful Road" will take by Perry Savage place. Ms. Haddad is a well known member of the San Diego music scene - a community that includes past Music on the Mountain favorites: CiCi Williams, Lisa Sanders, Notas Antiguas, Peter Sprague, Judy Taylor and most recently, Gregory Page, now touring in Europe. At age five, Marie Haddad was already a budding pianist. She loved playing the piano, but formal music lessons were another matter. It was that "attention span" thing that got in the way. Her practicing was too often interrupted by a compelling desire to do cartwheels, or the like. At age eleven, her formal training came to an end but her desire to someday play professionally stayed with her. She continued writing music and playing piano, but the shy side continued on page 10 Wednesday, October 20 8am YNOLA FARMS ARKETPLACE Cuyama000000!:00000000er Valley, Mt. Lagu00 Summit, War i: la.
