Caltrans To Lower Speed Limit Through Wynola SAN DIEGO - The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) will lower the speed limit on State Route 78/79 through the community of Wynola to 45 MPH. The speed reduction will begin east of Springview Road and end south of Wynola Road. A speed survey conducted in the area determined that a speed limit of 45 MPH is appropriate along this segment of highway. New speed limit signs will be posted by the middle of November. For more information, please contact the Caltrans Public Information Office at (619) 688- 6670.

The FireSight project extends the UCSD-based High Performance Wireless Research and Education Network (HPWREN) in areas where fire officials saw the greatest need. "Employing modern technology for early fire detection is a key component of the region's firefighting capabilities," said San Diego County Supervisor non Roberts, who championed funding for FireSight. "The County recognizes the importance of working with university researchers to come up with better solutions for the future, but we also saw the critical and immediate need for more cameras and weather stations now. By augmenting HPWREN's current network, our county's first responders gain access to better and faster detection capabilities." In mid-September the Board of Supervisors appropriated roughly $36,000 in funding from the Neighborhood Reinvestment Budget, and the first additional sets of megapixel network cameras are now operational - just in time for the heart of the fire season. At a news conference TuesdaY at the California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology (Calit2), UC San Diego researchers, Supervisor Roberts, and Howard Windsor, chief of the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CAL FIRE) briefed reporters on how the early fire detection and remote monitoring system enhance the region's ability to detect and fight fires. Each of the cameras deployed on Mr. Woodson (2,800 feet) and Red Mountain (1,600 feet) feeds an image to HPWREN's public website, and each is refreshed approximately every two minutes with an updated image. "The HPWREN wireless network is already being used by emergency agencies, including CAL FIRE, to track the progress of fires with our meteorological stations and over 20 mountain- top cameras before the latest upgrade," said HPWREN director Hans-Werner Braun, a research scientist at UC San Diego. "We have also provided critical wireless connectivity to various Incident Command Posts and other firefighting assets. But the funding from the San Diego County has allowed us to plug major holes in the infrastructure by ensuring that cameras in HPWREN topology, 360 degree these two locations will give fire officials and first responders a 360-degree view - something they have not had until now." According to CAL FIRE's Windsor, the eight cameras deployed on Mr. Woodson and a similar number on Red Mountain (near Fallbrook) will give his team greater visibility in a large, rural area where the terrain and distances make it difficult to maintain firefighters on the ground all the time. "Wildfires are a constant threat in these caffleras areas, so every bit of information we can get in real time, as it's happening, will allow us to react more quickly and accurately, because we'll be able to see the situation with our own eyes," said Windsor. "The FireSight project is adding a substantial number of cameras on the HPWREN network. The cameras are in regular use by the CAL FIRE Emergency Command Center and our situational awareness goal is to have quick insight into continued on page 7 155Mbps FOX 6 GHz FCC licensed 155Mbps FOX 11 GHz FCC licensed 45Mbps FDX 6 GHz FCC licensed 45Mbps FDX 11 GHz FCC licensed 45Mbps FDX 5.8 GHz unlicensed 45Mbps-class HDX 4.gGHz 45Mbps-class ~SMbps HDX 2.4/5.8 GHZ unlicensed -3f~ps HOX 2A GHz unlicensed 115kbps HDX 900 MHz unlicensed 56kbps via RC S network planned Baek~ne/relay n~ : 5 eisting camera~ Map courtesy UCSD approx|mately Ea~ science sRe O Univers~site i Researcher location Note: ~ocations are approximate Native American site First Responder site A Penny Saved... A Lesson About To Be Learned By Six Local "Artists" "When was a child I remember putting coins into a small brown envelop with my name on it and giving that envelop to my grade school teacher who .... somehow, deposited those !ii~iiiiiili ! i :! coins into a savings account in my name. By the fourth grade I had accumulated $19.85 in that ................. account and I remember the confidence that tidy sum gave me: I was providing for my own future!" While $19.85 did not prove to be enough to secure her future, what did prove invaluable to LuAnn Boylan, owner of the Orange Book, and, I suspect, to all of those who were lucky enough to participate in that program, was to learn first hand the value of saving. So, what does this story have to do with six Julian elementary school children and a pizza lunch held Wednesday, October 20th? Here's the connection: on October 20th Avery McFedries, , Charlie Taylor, Eva Cantor, Rachel Ritchie, Zachary Sinclair, Zenita Carlson and their families were all treated to a pizza lunch at Wynola Pizza Express because these children are the winners of the 2010 Julian Orange Book's "Kid's Art" contest, sponsored by Rabobank. In addition to lunch and a certificate of achievement, each of these children received a piggy bank and their own savings account, compliments of Rabobank, with a beginning balance of $25.00, compliments of Orange Book. "We love the idea of partnering in this," said Jennie DiPaolo, Julian Branch Manager for Rabobank, who, with LuAnn, co-hosted the luncheon and presentation. "It is a great way to recognize some of our local children and a great way to introduce them to the Importance of saving. It is never too early to start good habits and the habit of saving is an important one for all of us!" Of course, the kids were adorable arid they and their families seemed genuinely excited about the recognition and the gift of a savings account. As one parent commented, "This is such a great idea! Now, more than ever, our kids need to learn about saving and this is just such a nice thing for the bank and our community book to do! This is the kind of thing that only happens in small towns like Julian!" We add our congratulations to Avery, Charlie, Eva, Rachel, Zachary and Zenita for their wonderful drawings and hope they all make good use of their piggy banks and savings accounts because every penny really does count! Music On The Mountain Library Invites You To Some Ivory Tickling Tuesday, November 9th At 6 by Perry Savage The Julian Branch Library and The Friends of the Julian Library are pleased to present singer/ composer/ pianist John Foltz in concert. The event begins at 6:00 PM on Tuesday, November 9th in the Main Library Room. The free "Music on the Mountain" event will include refreshments and a raffle for John's latest album "Grounded". Here is recent praise for that album: ""Grounded" captures Foltz doing what he does best, singing finely-crafted adult alternative pop tunes that are driven by his stellar keyboard work... One of the most listenable and marketable adult alternative albums that I have heard in some time, "Grounded" includes elements of funk, rock, pop, folk, and soul... I found "Grounded" enjoyable from beginning to end." - John Phillip Wyllie- The San Diego Troubadour ---"With each note played on the piano, the intention of infecting people with the realities of everyday life is revealed... It's a no nonsense album that attempts to reach you in your deepest parts." -Victoria Joven - John Foltz's musical career began twenty years ago, playing in bands and performing solo in Orange County. In 2001 he moved to San Diego and decided to focus on his solo act. Like most musicians, he had to subsidize his early musical John Foltz at the keyboard career by working "real" jobs, but in 2008 he was able to make the jump to full-time musician. Since then, he has played at over 100 venues and maintains an enormous working repertoire of over 3,000 cover songs as well as a wealth of original material. Like most musicians starting their careers, John took whatever work came his way. He remembers an early job, playing Sunday mornings on the patio of a Krispy Kreme store, right next to the drive-through speaker. "This was, perhaps, the very definition of paying your dues," he recalled. He also remembers a white- knuckle commute between two closely scheduled gigs. "1 once finished a gig in Laguna Beach, broke down my equipment, loaded my car, drove 70 miles to downtown San Diego, found parking, ran four blocks, and started my next gig in a total of 48 minutes," John recalled. "No, I did not tell my mother about that one." As a professional musician, sometimes you have to straddle two worlds. John has learned to take that in stride. His two "steady gigs" couldn't be more polar opposites. On most Friday and Saturday nights, John is the piano player at Madame Cora's Marble Room in the Gaslamp.
