November 1, 2017 Julian Arts Guild Artist Of The Month The Artist of the month for November at the Julian Library will be Annie Dover. Born and raised in San Diego, California, Annie graduated from San Diego State University with a BA in Psychology and Music. She also earned an MA in Counseling and a Teaching Credential from SDSU and holds an AA in Art. Annie is an independent and largely self-taught artist who has been active in the region for over 25 years. She has adopted a multitude of approaches to her work; from personal symbolism to psychological figurative to plein- aire painting. Her oil paintings are of real life experience tinged with romantic realism. Annie has been the recipient of many awards. She has had several solo shows. She has been featured in Southwest Art Magazine, American Art Collector and International Artist Magazine. She is an associate member of OPA (Oil Painters of America). She is represented by Santa Ysabel Gallery in California and Sugarman- Peterson Gallery in Santa Fe, NM. About her art, Annie says, "The viewer of my recent paintings seems to open a door and step into the intimacy of my subject. The small size of my paintings compels the viewer to take an additional step forward to feel the intimacy. My subject is primarily the figure in his/her rudimentary form; unposed. I'm attracted to variety, mood and mystery; whether mundane, expressive or passionate, of the human person. I create a story on canvas which elicits wonder. Like a seasoned writer or playwright, my goal is to communicate to my viewer via paint an emotional connection to my visual story. My props are a heightened sense of color; strong value contrast and design; and content which has universal and personal appeal. Great art is a bridge between our heart and the heart of the world." ocal Eperience Since 1988 * Tree Consulting and Inspection * Long Term Forest Maintenance and Planning * Hazardous Removal and Precision Felling * Ornamental Pruning and Lacing * Brush Clearing and Chipping FREE ES TIMA TES Licensed and Bonded Fully Insured for Your Protection ERIC DAUBER H: 760-765-2975 C: 760-271-9585 PO Box 254 JULIAN, CA.

What many people may not realize is that most of these firefighters are volunteers. Seven out of 10 firefighters and emergency responders are volunteers, protecting their communities from a variety of hazards and saving taxpayers nationwide an estimated $140 billion a year. They come from all backgrounds, professions, ages, genders, races and ethnicities. The Problem Many local departments are struggling to meet staffing needs. Call volume has tripled in the last 30 years as fire departments' roles in communities continue to expand, making the need for volunteers greater than ever. Yet many community members are unaware of this need. A survey by the National Volunteer Fire Council (NVFC) found 41 percent of respondents did not know that their department used volunteers and 79 percent did not know their department was looking for more volunteers. An Answer Volunteering in the fire service provides a unique way for people to give back to the community while developing skills and experience that can contribute greatly to many aspects of their personal and professional life. It also provides camaraderie, a sense of purpose, and community impact to those who serve in this extraordinary way. New recruits .are trained by the department. Skills to learn vary based on the departmentOs response requirements, but training may cover a wide array of emergency situations such as fires, emergency medical incidents, terrorist events, natural disasters, hazardous materials incidents and other public service calls. Certain departments may have specific requirements, such as a high school degree, a physical and a background check, but when it comes down to it, volunteering The Julian News 3 Autumn Skies Include Brilliant Star Clusters, A Meteor Shower And Other Treats by Bill Carter I discovered that I have nearly always discussed the Double Cluster in the Fall of previous years. Even so, the Double Cluster is one of the binocular highlights in any season and not to be missed so I will discuss it again. The two star clusters known as the Double Cluster (designated NGC 869 and NGC 884 in star catalogs) are located halfway between the W-shaped constellation Cassiopeia (located just north of the zenith in the early evenings of November) and the two strings of the necklace-shaped constellation Perseus (located just east of Cassiopeia). Both young star clusters are about 7000 light years from Earth, both clusters contain several thousand stars (though NGC 869 is a bit larger than NGC 884) and together they are an impressive sight in any pair of binoculars. Let's now turn our binoculars to a nearby cluster rising directly in the east in the constellation Taurus (the Bull). The Hyades cluster is famously the subject of a cave painting in Lascaux, France. Look for the rather large V-shaped pattern of stars with the bright, red-orange star Aldebaran, the angry eye of Taurus the Bull, at one end. Now sweep up the arms of the Andromeda constellation to their beginning at the corner of the square-shaped constellation, The Great Square of Pegasus (the Winged Horse). Count down two stars in the lower arm of Andromeda (the eastern arm) and look just below it and you will see a large but dim galaxy, M33 the Pinwheel Galaxy, which is a member of our Local Group of galaxies. M33 -- The Pinwheel Galaxy This galaxy is about the size of our own Milky Way galaxy and many observers report thatthey can see it without optical aid (i,e., naked-eye). It will appear as a distinct oval glow with a bright center. Since we are still close to the constellation Pegasus, you may sweep westward to the end of the longest arm stretching out to the west from the Great Square itself to the very bright star Enif. About 4 degrees (or the width of your clenched fist held at arm's length) to the northwest is the globular cluster M15 (the Great Pegasus Cluster). Globular clusters orbit the center of our galaxy in its halo in highly elliptical and inclined orbits. Globular clusters may be, in fact, the cores of smaller galaxies absorbed by our Milky Way galaxy billions of years ago. M15 may contain about one million stars. The Leonid meteor shower will peak on November 17th in the early morning hours (around 3 a.m. local time). The meteors will appear to radiate from the east and specifically from the Sickle asterism (or the reverse Question Mark) in the constellation Leo. This shower is only one day from the New Moon so the night sky should be dark. The two brightest planets, Venus and Jupi{er, appear in the morning skies in November. On the morning of November 13th about 30 minutes before sunrise in the east-southeast, these two planets will meet (this is known as a conjunction) and be only 0.3 degrees apart. Mercury and Saturn will appear in the evening skies in November. Mercury will appear after mid-November only 5 degrees above the horizon in the southwest about a half-hour after sunset. Saturn will pass very close to Mercury in the evenings of November 23rd to the 27th about 30 minutes after sunset in the southwest.

The Julian Dark Sky Network, the Curiosity Peak Observatory in Julian and the San Diego County Parks and Recreation Department will host a star party at William Heise Park in Julian on November 25th.
