The gift was from Judy Faitek, of San Diego, whose late husband assembled the collection of mostly antique tools. Some of the peelers (called parers) date back more than 100 years. They include some used when people began using the mechanical parers to speed up the process of getting the fruit ready to make cider. A few of the most interesting parers were on display during the Apple Fest celebration at Menghini Winery Oct. 2 and 3. The collection came from the estate of Faitek's late husband, Leon, an electrical engineer who fell in love with the devices and started collecting them seriously. Faitek, explained their odyssey, "We looked for apple parers in rural communities all over the country. As Leon collected the more common parers, he started buying the rare ones on the Internet. He became active in the International Society of Apple Parer Enthusiasts and went to their conventions. "Every apple parer in this collection is different and most of them still work," according to Faitek. Originally made of wood, they were invented to speed up a very arduous, but necessary, job: that of peeling and coring apples so they could be pressed, fermented into cider, cooked, and stored for the winter. Samples of the earliest apple parers were designed to be clamped to a table or set on a tabletop. They were operated by hand cranks, and later had pulley actions for faster peeling. After the Civil War, the parers were made of cast iron in same factories that produced the armaments for the war. "Leon would be so pleased to know his parers will continue to educate everyone about the past," Faitek noted as she turned over the collection to the museum. It will go on display in the coming months. Two of the 70 Apple Parers (peelers) acquired by the Pioneer Museum, a new display is being constructed for all of them. LEON FAITEK CALIFORNIA The Julian Pioneer Museum, known as Julian's little attic, holds collections tools, clothing, and artifacts from many of Julian's old families.

John Loud, an American inventor, patented a ball point pen in 1888. Spencer Valley Science and Art Fair contimwd /iom page 1 graders modeled the molecules of photosynthesis, water, carbon dioxide, oxygen, and glucose molecules of photosynthesis -- using marshmallows and chocolate covered raisins as the component atoms. Sixth graders' experiments and demonstrations included owl pellets, PH of soil, filtration, composting, plant respiration, tsunami waves, and sprouting beans. The lone seventh grader made a Power Point display about marine biology and sea turtles in particular. The Ritchie Hailers (grades three through seven) also displayed their Recycled Art, sculptures they had made from discarded materials and objects. Creations ranged from a Jetson- era jukebox, to conceptual art towers, to miniature compounds in honor of favorite canines, to a life-sized apple tree, to a long- beaked, feathered, clock-bearing creature known as a "Coo Coo Peaclock." Favored media for these creations included Camie Nelson's demonstration that bubble gum absorbs oil strawberry baskets, mailing tubes, and abandoned CD's. The multi-disciplinary event drew complimentary reviews from parents and other guests. In other news Spencer Valley's API, the state's indicator for achievement for the 2009-2010 school year, has been published as 934. 800 out of the possible 1000 is the cut off number for schools to be considered successfully making progress. Students and teachers automatically scrambled to get under their desks and work tables when this week's 4.0 earthquake struck on Wednesday morning. The quake might as well have been part of the Great California Shakeout program Spencer Valley is taking part in this month. The Shakeout focuses on preparedness and evacuation drills.
