Cuyama r Valley, Mt. Lagu Summit, Volume 27 - Issue 08 Wednesday October 5, 2011 Julian, CA. ISSN 1937-8416 Once again we start October and Apple Days celebrations with the Banjo/Fiddle behind us and a late fall and winter visitor season on the horizon, smoke is in the air. Saturday October first, just before one in the afternoon the call goes out and the sirens start, the helicopters are swarming and the big red, trucks are rolling along the highway. We call it "the season" but over the last ten years it seems to mean something completely different. The visitors are all dressed in bright yellow, they travel in the big trucks and don't stop to grab a piece of pie. This year it's a camp out down Banner Grade about two and a half miles west (toward town) of Scissors Crossing. Origin unknown the tankers start to drop their loads, the ground crews grab their spades, helicopters are sucking water from every available pond. It's the season again, the one we all have in the back of our mind all year long. As of Saturday night the official report is we have an additional 375 visitors, a number of whom will be riding bull .dozers all night, or hiking into some very treacherous terrain. 950 acres was the estimate of what had been burned on Saturday. By Sunday we had over 1000 welcome guests, the acreage was .up to 2000 and conditions seemed to be in the favor of those out on the lin es. The initial report in the morning had the 5% cont_ i, m .nt arv;Ik, an ominous warning of 25 structures being threatened. At 9:30 Sunday morning the decision was made to close down Banner Grade to through traffic all by Michael Hart The weekends visitors set up camp at Jess Martin Park photo by Stacy Peyakov for safety of the apparatus being moved in and out of the area from Jess Martin Park which had become the command center. by one o'clock most who had been observing from the water tank in Whispering Pines or the Point in Kentwood figured this had become a mc p up operation, Meanwhile there was other stuff happening around the town. The Merchants Association was putting on the most successful Apple Days Festival to date. The U-Pick orchards all had crowds of folks taking fruit off the trees. The Melodrama got off to a rousing first weekend at the town Out at the Apple day festival a record crowd took part in all the activities and made a busy two days for Merchants Association President Tracy Turner. At Julian Community by Patti We have had a super summer at preschool this yeafi We had an awesome field-trip to the Safari Park, and we planted a garden on June 1st right before summer began. The children have watched those tiny seeds sprout into a GIANT garden of pumpkins, tomatoes, cucumbers, squash, and green beans. We have fresh vegetables to eat for snack-time, right from our own splendid garden....And they are delicious! Along with the garden, there was lots of fun splashing going on in our pool, during those warm summer days. We ended our summer program, with a great field-trip to the movies and a fun lunch at the park. Our new school-year is under way, and we would love to have some new friends join us! So stop little did we know that CalFire was about to issue a reverse 911 evacuation advisory, which would panic a number of people and end up on the screens of TV's all over San Diego as an actu al evacuation warning. By Sunday night things had calmed once again, containment was now 25% and the threatened areas had been addressed. ha i and the streets were packed with people. Traffic was better than expected, except for a major accident on Saturday in Wynola. So October is here the season we love top hate is in full swing, we survived weekend one ... only seven more before we light the tree in Pioneer Park and get ready for Christmas. by and see what's gonng-on at The top prize winners in this years Womens Club Pie Baking the preschool.

Shelton WA 98584-2263 Ms. Apple Days 2011 Anita Nichols Anita moved to Julian in 1973 and lived here until 1975. She moved away in that year and lived down the hill until 1981 when she moved back to Julian. She has four children and four grand children, who all live in California, but not in Julian. Anita is Eric Stamets' sister. Eric for those that don't know, is the owner of The Warm Hearth on Main Street. She started Mom's Pie Company from scratch in 1984. The building on Main Street in which her business is now located was the Julian Cafe at one time. in 1982 the Julian Caf moved across the street to its present location. The building was empty for a couple of years until Anita bought it. The shop at that time was only 10 ft by 22 ft and I remained that way for one and one half years until she expanded it to its present size. She jokes that she should have written a book called How to start a pie business in a closet". She said it felt like she was working in a closet during that time becauSe she was so cramped. She modeled her pie recipes from her mother's pie recipes which were excellent. She says they are the standard recipe for pie. They are very popular with our tourists who line up outside the shop waiting to buy a couple of savory pies to take home. The pie shop also serves delicious sandwiches, soup, chili, and other baked goodies well asa fabulous variety of different kinds of pie. They even have ecorated dog biscuits for your pooch. Anita has now purchased an additional location for her pie mpany. It is located in Wynola in the former King Leo's Candy on Highway 78.
