Before Mike and Toni moved to Julian, Mike worked as a wine maker for several wineries: the San Pasqual winery, the Calloway winery, and the Filsingers winery. In Temecula he worked at the Thornton winery which specializes in Champagne. Toni on the other hand was an airline flight attendant with United Air Lines. She flew the skies for 37 years before she retired and now works with Mike full time at the winery here in Julian. They always wanted to start their own winery so they purchased this property from the Farmer Family back in 1980. The building, which is now the winery, was once the Farmer's Apple Packing Barn and Cider Mill. (The Farmers used to have a road side store on Hwy 78. Now the Wynola home Mom's Pies.) The Menghinis leased the property and building for two years so the Farmers could move out and relocate and then in 1982 they started to build the Menghini Winery. Mike and Toni are very active in community affairs. Mike is President of the .Julian Chamber of Commerce and Toni has been the chairman of the Julian Country Christmas decorating committee for 11 years. They both serve on the Julian 4th of July committee. They graciously share their wonderful grounds here for many, ma~ny community events and fundraisers and they are always ready to assist the town with any activity or fundraiser they are asked to support. We are so lucky to have these two delightful and generous people here in Julian. The Julian Merchant's Association was pleased to crown Mike and Toni Menghini, Mr. and Mrs. Apple Days 2010.

Congratulations to these outstanding scholars! 2011 National Merit Scholarship Program Commended Student At JUHS Congratulations to Michael Hatch who has been named a Commended Student in the 2011 National Merit Scholarship Program. A Letter of Commendation from the school and National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC), which conducts the program, will be presented by the principal to this scholastically talented senior. About 34,000 Commended Students throughout the nation are being recognized for their exceptional academic promise. Although they will not continue in the 2011 competition for National Merit Scholarships, Commended Students places among the top five percent of more than 1.5 million students who entered the 2011 competition by taking the 2009 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test PSAT/NMSQT). Ninth, tenth, and eleventh grade students have the opportunity to take the test, but only eleventh graders can qualify for the National Merit Scholarship program. Over 50 students at JUHS will take the test on October 13 this year. "Recognition of high- achieving students is essential to advancing educational excellence in our nation," commented a spokesperson for NMSC. "As demonstrated by their outstanding performance in our highly competitive program, the young men and women named Commended Students represent some of the most academically talented students in our country. We sincerely hope this recognition will enhance their educational opportunities and encourage them in their pursuit of academic success." i1 al rl by H "Buddy" Seifert i Not only did Julian pick up a half an inch of rain in the twenty i minutes just before kick-off, but they scored two touchdowns in the first 20 minutes of the game against the Calvary Christian, San Diego Royal Knights. Our boys played their best football of the season and came away winning their opening conference game against a 3 - 0 conference rival. The Royal Knights were held to a -5 yards on their first possession. Brett Teusch took their punt at the Eagles' 40 and was off like a hydroplane across the marsh. Julian's first possession was capped by a 42 yard run by Rodney Doss, Jr. [j Our Eagles 7. Their Royal Knights 0. I The Eagles and the Knights swapped punts for the rest of the quarter. Julian's first possession of the second quarter brought in the j "Jumbo" package with Dennis Wohlin as the Eagles running back. Dennis, if you remember, is a 6'5", 250 Ib interior lineman. When the going gets muddy, bring in your draft horses. It was a noble I: experiment that ended in an Eagles punt. Calvary Christian's picked up 63 yards on two passes and were about to score when Josh Savage picked off a well thrown Knights pass just short of the goal line and returned the rock to the Eagles 40. The teams swapped off sides penalties when Eagles QB Jesse Lopez connected with Josh Ernst for a 58 yard pass and run. Touchdown Eagles! Josh Ernst tapped the extra point in.

The Knights went wading for the rest of the half and came up empty. With the sun coming out as it only can in Julian, the half time score is our Eagles 14. The visiting Royal Knights 0. The second half opened with the Knights kickoff going out of bounds and the Eagles taking the ball on their own 35. My Eagles were unable to capitalize on their good fortune and punted away to the Knights 33. Being the ever gracious guests, the Knights promptly fumbled forward to their own 42 and lost the ball. Rodney, Jr. picked up another 21 yards in the warming sunshine, but a fumbled exchange on a reverse left the Eagles in a third and really long situation. Your Eagles punted away and the Knights series was no better, ending with a punt to Brett at the Eagles 32. Our Eagles were moving down field when an errant snap from center went skidding on the wet grass and mud and was recovered by the Knights at their own 41. The Knights smartly moved the ball down field and were sitting on my Eagles 13 yard line as the whistle blew to end the third quarter. After 36 minutes of wet football, it's the Julian Eagles 14 and the Calvary Christian Royal Knights 0. Jesse Lopez is about to find out how wet the field is as he is tripped up on the sideline. photo by Albie Stark The Knights opened the fourth quarter with a short pass into the end zone but their PAT try clanked of the right goal post. Our Eagles 14, their Knights 6. The Knights were fired up after their score but the Eagles managed a first down before they had to punt. Jesse had to scramble to make the punt and it was blocked and the Knights recovered the ball at the Eagles 11. The Knights thought that had it made in the shade, 11 yards to go, the Eagles rocked back on their heels. A Calvary Christian touchdown was in the foreseeable future. Luckily, Rodney Jr. skipped that chapter and picked off the sure touchdown pass in the Eagles continued on page 7
