Mr. and Mrs. Apple Days 2012 Les and Audrey Turner by Diana Garrett OPEN MONDAY - FRIDAY 8:00AM TO 5PM Prior to 2000 both Les and Audrey had businesses in New Port Beach. Les owned an All State Insurance agency and Audrey owned Earth Escrow Company. They shared an office which made is very convenient for them. From 2000 until 2012 they shared the Pastor ship of the Creative Center for Spiritual living. In 2005 they bought Peacefield Orchards in Wynola which is a 2 acre ranch. They made it a U-Pick orchard by reservation only. This property had many old apple trees some 100 years old. They planted many young trees so that now there are 550 trees there. Last year they had over 3000 visitors to their orchard. This year they didn't have many apples so they didn't have many visitors. Between the two of them they have six children all in their 50s: Melony lives in San Diego, Bruce lives in Idaho, Lorayne lives in Seattle, Tera lives in Ramona, Tracy lives in Ramona, and Geoffrey lives in Seal Beach. They are listed in order according to age with Melony, the oldest. Les is a very busy man these days. He is on the Chamber Board of Directors, he is a member of the Jess Martin Park Board, he is a Senior Volunteer for the Sheriff's department, and he is on call as the maintenance manager for Wynola Junction Antiques. Of course he also runs and maintains his orchards on Wynola Road. Audrey is a busy lady as well. She has been corresponding secretary for the Julian Woman's Club for several years. She is also a member of the Crochet group who meets at the Coffee House each week. They make all kinds of items for needy groups around town and overseas as well. She volunteers at the library book store and at the Julian Pioneer Museum. She also works at Wynola Junction Antiques. You can see that this couple is very deserving of the honor of Mr. and Mrs. Apple. Merchants Association Celebrates Successful A Days Festival - But It's Not Over Apple Days is off to a terrific start this year, we were able to generate lots of media interest too bad the apple crop didn't last very long. The weather is nice as it cools, making the trip a great mountain experience for those looking for apples. The Apple Gang is still hiding in Julian hopefully everyone has a poster and encourages visitors to hunt for the golden apple and receive a prize. Decorate your business this ! fall and you may win a cash prize and a picture of your business in the newspaper in the Eric : Stamets Fall Decorating Contest. The Julian Library has pictures for the coloring contest, color the picture and drop it off at the library for a prize and to have it hung with the other local artists. For the second half of Apple Days the JMA will sponsor a couple of porta potties at Rabobank parking lot. Hopefully this will take a little strain off the Chamber and Restaurant restrooms sorry we didn't think of it sooner! We will keep them there through the November Tree Lighting. Apple Days Festival Wrap-Up The Festival held out at Menghini Winery on the 6th & 7th was the most successful to date. It was a real family event, with lots of games, music, and apple related items! Bob Reidy, a local grower had a truckload of apples for sale and the newly formed Julian Apple Growers Association set up an apple display, answered questions and offered a variety of apples for tasting. The JMA offered Caramel Apples on a Stick (thanks to the Julian Cafe) and Apple Sundays, along with Apple Days T-Shirts and Information about Julian. Teek Nichols and David Lewis of the Julian Apple Growers Association explaining the different varities of apples grow through out the area. photo by Michael Hart The Julian Woman's Club held a Pie Baking Contest on Friday, and announced the winners at the festival. Slices of the pies were sold to raise money for their scholarship fund. They also sold Julian Pie and Cider, until they ran out of both! Thanks to the Julian Pie Company andthe Cider Mill for their support. On Sunday, Les and Audrey Turner of Peaceffeld Orchard were crowned Mr. & Mrs. Apple Days! Lucky for us their orchard is already out of apples - and they were able to attend the festival. With their crowns and septors, they walked all around and had their picture taking with all the vendors. The pictures will be up on the website shortly. We estimate about 7,000 people attended the festival (more children than ever) this year. A quick look at the survey cards showed about half had never been to Julian before and 100% would definitely be back, with most of those planning to shop, eat at a restaurant and go wine tasting. We will share the results of the surveys at our next breakfast meeting. These days, having the right camera means the camera can make it easy to share photos with family and friends. For example, the Canon PowerShot ELPH 320 HS digital camera features built-in wireless capabilities.

Once again runners and walkers can hit the roads through some of the prettiest and most challenging countryside in San Diego County, all the while enjoying a last blast of fall color and cool autumn weather. The event, sponsored by Matt Kraemer, owner of Julian Fitness' Center and Alpine Physical Therapy and Fitness Center, takes place on Nov. 10. Competitors and friends will gather at Julian High School at 6 a.m. that Saturday. An extremely popular sporting event that drew athletes from all over the county to Julian, the run was held each November for many years when it was presented by the Julian High School student body. Much of this year's event will recall the Fun Run of yore, according to Kraemer. "We will start at the high school parking lot. Runners will follow the same route, a USATF Scenic Course, out of town and back to the school." Those running/walking the 5K race will head down Main Street to Farmer Rd. and turn back at the carriage turnout near Julian Meadow View Inn (formerly Angels Landing). The 10K group will continue on to the Menghini Winery before turning around. "So runners will know how they did, we'll have a timer record individual start and finish times," Kraemer says. Plan to say for the post-run festivities. There will be refreshments, entertainment, and vendors plus a chance to compare your records wltl other athletes. "This is a charitable event," Kraemer says. "All proceeds from entry fees will benefit the Julian High School Athletic Program and runners do not need to obtain sponsors. We expect it to be a yearly event, so we can support the program on an ongoing basis." It's best to register in advance; you get a discount on the entry fee and you don't have to be at the high school hours ahead of the start of the race. Prices are $32 for the 5Kand $42 for the 10K; they go up to $50 on the day of the event. Every participant will receive a t-shirt as a memento of the event. To register online click on www.; click through the pages to locate the registration form. If you don't register in advance, registration opens at 6 a.m. at the high school; race start time is 7:30 a.m. For information visit Julian Fitness Center, owned by Matt Kraemer, has served the wellness needs of the small mountain town since April 2011. Membership is about 100 Julian and area residents, many of whom are seniors who benefit from the community-centered ambiance and personal attention that the center offers. =k * =,k A self-powered emergency radio and flashlight combo, the Eton FRX 3, with an AM/FM/NOAA radio, will keep you informed, while the battery (recharged via solar panel or hand crank) keeps the light and power on.

I would like to know what they are worth. -- Bill, Clarksville, Tenn. A: The Daizy churn might be worth about $75 if it is in decent condition. The value of the crocks would depend on size, manufacturer and condition. Q: I have a tumbler that was made with Pittsburgh Glass. I have been told that it is qui!e early. I love the tumbler and want to learn more about this type of glass. -- Susan, Naperville, II1. A: According to the 20th edition of Schroeder's Antiques Price Guide, window glass and hollow ware were being produced in the Pittsburgh area as early as 1797. Coal was used instead of wood to fire the large glass furnaces. At one time, more than 150 glass companies flourished in the region. During the Victorian era, dozens of free-blown, pattern- molded and flint glass were produced. I suspect your tumbler was probably made sometime during the late 19th to early 20th centuries. Q: I have six copies of Life magazine, including those depicting Martin Luther King's assassination and .funeral, the Marvels of Egypt, and the 1969 Year in Review issue. I also have an Esquire magazine and Harper's Bazaar, both from 1937. --Pat, Conyngham, Pa. A: A quick check of several magazine dealers confirmed that most issues of Life magazine from the 1960s are worth an average of about a dollar per issue. Like all collectibles, there are always exceptions. Q: I recently inherited a teapot and several serving pieces in the Tea Leaf pattern. I like the simplicity of the design, and I would like to find more about it. --Betty, Naperville, IlL A: Tea Leaf china was one of the most popular patterns to be carried west during the American expansion of the post-Civil War period. This durable stoneware was perfect far the rough and tumble West and has remained popular with collectors for more than 150 years. One of the best sources is the Tea Leaf Club International, 960 Bruden Road, Columb(Js, OH 43205. Write to Larry Cox in care of King Features Weekly Service, P.O.
