The trees they cut were Chinese Elms that just suck up water and they are not trees that we want in our yard. These trees are weeds. They have grown over fifteen feet since the Cedar Fire. The volunteers also raked up broken glass that had fallen into the weeds when the building it was in burned in the Cedar Fire. Was that fire really six years ago? The garden idea is alive and work is progressing. The volunteers plan to come back next week to plant garlic around the perimeter of the future garden. Planting garlic is a good idea to keep the deer away, and it smells much better than blood meal, which is another recommended method to keep deer out of a garden. wasn't here to see the work getting done, however I see their progress just as I see the progress I'm making with all the raking I've been getting done before and after work. Just by getting a few chores done in my yard, which is now their space, the community gardeners are giving me the energy to work in my yard too. Getting a yard ready for planting; or just cleaning it up; takes a lot of time. Time spent cutting weeds, even trees that are weeds, is time well spent. Progress is needed to keep the energetic juices flowing, and now I'm seeing that progress. Both theirs and mine. I like to work alone in my yard. I like to break my work up in to projects that I can complete in a day, or at least see progress from a days work, so nothing is dangling and looking undone. However, when I see that others near me have cleared weeds and tilled the earth or planted; it somehow gives me energy to do the same. I rake; I hoe, I trim trees, I weed whack and once again I feel good about working in my yard. Having the community gardeners working to establish their own garden plots on my land makes me feel like I've made a real contribution to my community. Mike and I loan them the land; we told them they can rake up and utilize all the oak leaves they can find on our property and with all of the work they do, I will be able to look at our acreage and know we've made it safer and more attractive. I know that aesthetically a yard looks best when it looks the way the owner wants it to look. I want my property to look clean and weed free. I want it to look abundant with usable plants. I want to see fruit vines and vegetables basking in the sun and drinking in the ram With a community garden in my yard; I know that other people will benefit from our land in ways I don't have time for. People will grow food here for their meals and maybe enough to share. That makes me feel that I'm helping others to survive on limited budgets. They will taste the taste that only fresh food can produce. I don't have time for all the daily yard work I'd like to do, however, watching the progress that the volunteer community gardeners are making gives me a push to do a bit more than I might do otherwise. It gives me a push to be a bit more organized when working in my yard so I can accomplish the most in the shortest time. Sharing our land with community gardening volunteers gives me a better appreciation of what we have and I'm glad we can contribute to our community in this way. The next community garden meeting will be Wednesday October 21st at 4 pm at the Julian Library.

Contrary to the published article, is the fact that my friends and family have not only taken wild p gs previous to this, but also enjoyed the meat. This is one of the few benefits of these feral pigs being released in our area, and one of the many benefits of having close ties with Tribal members. We are fortunate to have the freedom to hunt pigs without license on Capitan Grande. This enables Tribal members to help control the population of this new menace, and enjoy a free meal. This is the approach that our Hawaiian cousins have taken for almost two centuries. As I am writing this article, two feet under the ground, wrapped in two oven bags, aluminum foil, and then a wet burlap sack, cooks three bundles of Capitan Grande wild pig. We are cooking this 100 pound sow for ten hours in a "pit", then digging it up and having a dandy little "luau on the creek". You are all invited imagine how delicious this pig will be, cooked with pineapple and Teriyaki sauce until the meat falls off the bone. We'll add a big bowl of rice and some fruit and melons to top it off. Some Island mumc adds to the vibration and we laugh about the report of the "first" pig taken here. You see the correct terminology was first used in "Robin Hood" in reference to the "Queen's deer". This was used by the authorities to describe all the game in the forest, meaning it was off limits to non-royal hunters. So the correct way to report this is to say "the first of the Queens pigs were taken, by a local hunter". The unlucky pig that supposedly wandered off sovereign Indian land, instantly became one of the Queen's pigs and was fair game. It also becomes a source of revenue for the state. You must have a hunting license and pig tag to legally take a pig. This adds up to big dollars for the state, incentive for them to not issue a depredation permit. This permit would allow for the taking of these invasive animals, without license or tags. Possible loss of any income is enough for the state to turn their heads away from controlling the spread of the feral pig. Any land owners that have encounters with this animal, should explore the option of a depredation permit. This would allow you the right to take this invasive animal on your property without tags and licedse. For any hunters that might get the idea to "mistake" the boundary between National Forest and Reservation, I would advise against it. This is a serious trespass and will not be treated lightly. Respect the boundaries and wait for the pigs to come to you. With every boar that matures, he must expand into new range, farther from the rez and closer to you. Eventually moving close enough range for you to bag one, throw it in the pit, cook and enjoy, Native Style. " Arts Guild October Meeting Artist Bill Duffy will do a demonstration for the October meeting of the Julian Arts Guild. Bill Duffy is an accomplished painter specializing in landscape and nature.

Preschool Students at the Julian Community Preschool learned about fire safety with a special visit from firefighter Jason Kuiper. Kuiper, out of the Julian/ Cuyamaca Volunteer Fire Station, treated preschoolers to a tour of a working fire engine on Friday, October 2. During this special visit, the students discussed fire safety, and "stop, drop, and roll" techniques with Kuiper. Julian Community Preschool is a non-profit organization that prepares young children for educational success by offering school-based curriculum year round. Besides fire safety, students will also be learning about the Fall season, and of course Halloween. Preschoolers will also discover how to discern weight differences, and learn more about the senses of both sight and sound.
