Scoutmaster Keith Stringfellow, Asst. Scoutmaster Lay Lay, sailing instructor Scot Copeland, and eight Scouts used three sailboats and two paddleboards to further the boys' water safety, skills and sailing competence. Healthy winds only resulted in one unplanned capsize drill with a speedy self-recovery. A great, safe weekend was had by all. What's better than a good day on the water followed by a campfire on the beach burning Julian oak? Julian Scout Troop 690 welcomes boys between the ages of 11 and 17 who are looking for adventure and a variety of learning and character building opportunities. Meetings are held Monday evenings at the American Legion post from 6:00 to 7:15 pm, and day or overnight adventures are held every month or two. For further information, please contact Scoutmaster Keith Stringfellow at 760-505-0119. ¸ • Julian Scout Troop 690 at Fiesta Island (above) David Stringfellow on Stand Up Paddleboard, with father Keith Stringfellow behind.

"BUDDY" SEIFERT JCSD District Manager BRIAN KRAMER Community Volunteer C2) Back Country Entertaining The animals like to put on an especially good show for visitors from out of town and when the visitors are many and, several of them, Important People they bend over backwards. Metaphorically, that is. Snobs. The chickens weren't at their best as moulting and an over- assiduous rooster don't combine to make shiny feathered fowl. There are two roosters. One spends most of his time posing to be admired while the other has at it, hens •running and screeching to get out of the way• That one may go on Craig's list. The horses, of course, are always lovely and they milk it for vast quantities of treats• Then we get to the Other Animals. "Oh, look! Deer! .... Look, look!" "How wonderful!" The deer pose this way and that way then bound gracefully away after a derisive flick of the ear and a quietsneer in my direction. We'll get even. Hunting season is upon us and venison tastes especially good when seasoned with revenge• Then there are the turkeys. "Are they really wild? .... How do you know." "Well, they fly, that's why. That's how you know. Domestic turkeys don't." "Amazing." Right. :l-his visit, however, the guys went overboard• M. le Coyote even loped into view not once but twice. "This is so special, seeing a real coyot," the pronunciation in Romanian being different than English. "It's so exciting." M. le Coyote posed in all his mangy glory then sauntered away, knowing full well that he wouldn't be shot in front of visitors. Or shot at, to be more accurate, since I am not. Accurate, that is. But it didn't stop there. One evening a 'possum waddled up on the deck to steal the feral cats' food. The cats ate alongside while one kitten tried to play with the 'possum's tail. And then the raccoon, rotten little tomato-eating beast, also visited• And we had a discussion about the difference between ground and tree squirrels, about birds (one US guest is coming back to a local B and B to spend a few days bird watching) and the absence of visible snakes. Somehow no one really wanted to see the snakes. Julian Branch Of International Womens" Empowerment A Micro-Loan For Less Than The Cost Of A Nice Pair Of Shoes Can Make A Difference Between Extreme Poverty And A Decent Life For A Woman And Her Family A group of women in Julian concerned about women in poverty around the world and in America, have come together to raise funds for micro-loans for women. This world-wide movement is based on the efforts of Bangladesh economist Muhammad Yunus. He won the Nobel Peace Prize for his work with micro:loans to break the cycle of poverty for women in his country, The success of his idea has resulted in more than 250 institutions in nearly 100 countries using the principle of micro-loans to change the lives of women. On Saturday, November 1st the Julian Womens Empowerment circle will have their annual major fundraiser to support these loans as they seek to enable other women to lift themselves out of poverty. That can include making it affordable to send their children to school- both sons and daughters and improving their family's health. This event in the Julian Town Hall is sponsored by the Methodist Church's Alternate Gift Fair. WE (Womens Empowerment) has witnessed fine women succeed from just a small loan. Recently three women came up to Julian from San Diego to the Julian WE group to cater a lovely Ghanaian dinner and share• some hand-made jewelry. All are refugees from very difficult circumstances as we know from the daily news. Another group of women in Mexico who took out micro-loans were so successful that they loan money to others in their rural community and no longer need to request further loans They are now independent business women. Do come to the Gift Faire to see exquisite scarves, jewelry, continued on page 5 Attention Seniors: Now is the time to make changes to your coverage. Choose Arch Health Partners.
