October 24, 2012 o power phone cell We've all heard the phrases "When disaster strikes" or "In case of emergency", and living here in the Julian area most of us know we must be prepared for times when we can't depend on our normal communications systems. Whether it's a fire, an earthquake, or simply a bad snow storm, we will need to look for other solutions. For many years HAM radio has been the fall-back means of communicating whel all else has failed. Today HAk radio is alive and well! Even when the telephone lines and cell towers are down, HAM operators can talk to each other over hundreds and even thousands of miles. This becomes vitally important when faced with an emergency and we need help from outside resources. The HAM radio community in the San Diego area is very active and involved. In San Diego there are approximately 6000 licensed HAM radio operators, and in Julian alone there are close to OPEN MONDAY- FRIDAY 8:OOAM TO 5PM -%-> American Legion Auxiliary % %%A to the Publt0000 ITALIAN DELIGHT CHICKEN PICCATA ' WITH PASTA ...,,X,.

An established network of HAM operators in the Julian HEALTH and PERSONAL SERVICES area, the Julian Emergency Radio Team, helps monitor fires, storms and other situations that are potentially dangerous to our local community. They keep each other informed by providing real-time status reports, and they can coordinate with emergency response agencies, working closely with Julian-Cuyamaca CERT, The Julian-Cuyamaca Fire District, CalFire, the American Red Cross, and other emergency responders. W6JUL, which is the FCC licensed communications designation for the Julian Emergency Radio Team, also manages the North County Emergency Radio Network which consists of many CERT groups in San Diego County.

Call for an appointment NEW Clients ONLY ;INTUIT by Larry Cox Cigarette Lighter Q: I have an old cigarette lighter made by Auto Igniter Company of New York. How can I find out how much it's worth? -- Vincent, De Leon Springs, Fla. A: Cigarette lighters have always been popular with collectors, especially ones made by such manufacturers as Ronson, Zippo, Colibri, Dunhill and Evans. Prices vary, depending on both condition and rarity. One of the better clubs is "On the Lighter Side," which was founded in 1983 and has members who collect ashtrays, smoking stands and tobacco memorabilia, in addition to lighters. Contact the group at P.O. Box 1733, Quitman, TX 75783; info@otls.com; and http:// www.otls.com. Q: I inherited a rocking chair and would like to have it appraised. I am enclosing a picture of it. -- James, Sun City, Ariz. A: Your chair in handsome and probably from the early years of the past century. It appears to be constructed of tiger oak and is in good condition, considering the fact that it has provided comfort for at least a century. The style suggests to me it is probably from about 1915. There are several excellent appraisers in your area. One I highly recommend is Corinne Cain, a senior member of the American Society of Appraisers. Contact her c/o Savvy Collector Online Gallery, 326 West Harmont Drive, Phoenix, AZ 85021-5643; corrinne@savvycollector.com; and 602-906-1633. Q: I have two tools I would like to find out values about. My upright drill press was made by the Buffalo Forge Company, and my cast-iron corn grinder was made by the Southern Plow Company. I have tried looking them up on the Internet but can't find much. -- Star/a, Coffeeville, Ala. A I suggest you take pictures of your drill press and corn grinder and consult with antiques dealers in your area. Q: I have the 1967 yearbook of the New York Yankees with a few autographs. Whom can I contact about it? -- Bergen, Hudson, Fla. A: David Hall has an auction company that specializes in sports memorabilia, and he might be able to help you. Contact him c/o Halls Nostlalgia, P.O. Box 408, Arlington, MA 02476; and hallsnost@aol.com. Write to Larry Cox in care of King Features Weekly Service, P.O.
