New Dialing Rules Kick In This Week - All-Calls, Even Local Ones Now Require 1 0 Digits The California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC)is reminding consumers in the 760 area code that due to the new 442 area code overlay, they must dial 1 + area code + telephone number beginning October 24, 2009. This means that since two area codes will now serve the same geographic region, all calls in the 760 or 442 area codes need to be dialed using 1+ area code + telephone number (if using a landline). Those dialing from a cell phone do not need to dial 1 before the area code. On October 16, 2008, the CPUC approved an all-services overlay that added a new 442 area code to the same geographic region as the existing 760 area code in order to provide additional telephone numbers to meet consumer demand. The 760/442 area codes cover nearly one-third of California geographically- from the eastern and southern Sierra Nevada of Inyo and Mono Counties, through Death Valley National Park and the Mojave Desert to the Nevada and Arizona state lines, then further south to the Mexican border, and including major parts of Riverside, San Bernardino, and Imperial Counties as well as northern San Diego County. After October 24, 2009, if consumers do not use the dialing procedure described above, their call will not be completed and a recording will instruct them to hang up and dial again. Consumers should ensure that their automatic dialing equipment or other types of equipment that are programmed with a 7-digit telephone number are reprogrammed to use the new dialing procedure Some examples are life safety systems, fax machines, Internet dial-up numbers, alarm and security systems, gates, speed dialers, mobile phone contact lists, call forwarding settings, voice mail services, and similar functions. Consumers should also check their website, business stationery, advertising materials, personal checks, contact information, and their pet or personal ID tags to ensure the area code is included. As a result of the overlay, a consumer's existing telephone number, including current area code, will not change, nor will the cost of a telephone call, coverage area, or other rates and services. A local call will remain a local All Your Tree Service Needs Commercial call regardless of the number of digits dialed. Consumers can still dial just three digits to reach 911, as well as 211, 311, 411, 511, 611, 711, and 811.. Beginning November 21, 2009, new telephone lines or services may be assigned numbers with the new 442 area code. Drury Bailey Exhibit To Be Dedicated At Historical Society Meeting, October 28 On the evening of October 28, at 7:00pm, the Julian Pioneer Museum and the Julian Historical Society will co-host an event that is long overdue in Julian. With proper ceremony, the founder of the town, Drury Bailey and his family will be honored with the dedication of a new display in the Julian Pioneer Museum. A generous donation by the Bailey family has allowed for the purchase of a beautiful Howard Miller display case which will house photographs and artifacts belonging to the Bailey family. Of particular interest are some of Drury's personal belongings including the payroll log book for the Ready Relief Mine in Banner, California. The crown jewel of the collection, Drury's modified pick/cane will be placed into the display by none other than Drury's grandson, Richard Bailey. Richard will then share his sentiments of what this occasion means to him. Along side of the case will be the Bailey family history book which was compiled by Richard, and it will be available to researchers and also those with a casual interest in Julian's history. Many people will be surprised to learn that the founder of Julian was a mere 26 years old when he homesteaded and laid out Julian City. The saga of this young man takes us from his home in Georgia, through the battlefields of our horrible Civil War, and to this mountain valley he made his home. The story of Drury Bailey is not a product of history's romantic notions but an accounting of a real life home town hero. That a town would be built here, there is no doubt. But without Drury Bailey and his vision, we might now live in a far different place...a place untouched by his inspiration, honesty and friendship. Please join us and celebrate the life of Drury Bailey at 7:00pm, at the Museum. As an added bonus, fiddle girl, Celia Lawley, wilt perform the song she wrote about Drury. After the dedication ceremony we will walk next door to the Witch Creek School building for refreshments and to mingle in the history that is Julian. Wine (ok... coffee), women and song.., for freel what more could you ask for a Wednesday autumn's evening?
