Cemetery To Mark 140th Year - November 20th by David Lewis, Cemetery Historian The first burial in the Julian Cemetery occurred on November 20, 1870 when John Milton Brockman, a fou, rteen year old boy, was crushed and killed by the falling of a tree. According to family history, he was buried on the spot. For nearly fifty years, there was no one in charge of or keeping records of the cemetery. When the Julian Cemetery Association was formed, in 1922, there were many graves that were no longer marked. This is noted in the minutes of August 8, 1923. It is also noted in an unnumbered page from the cemetery ledger book of Ida Wellington. Ida states that: Mr. John McCain Sr., Mrs. Annie Crase, and Ida Bailey Wellington located the unmarked graves as best they could and placed wooden markers which served till Sidney Dodge made the cement markers for the Assn. C. R. Wellington wrote the names in the cement markers which were placed by the relatives of the dead, or by committee. Some graves were not identified. When I finished accumulating a data base for the old section of the cemetery, there were a total of 70 graves that I did not know the location of. In the ten years that I have been looking for these graves, I have located eleven. I have fifty-nine yet to find. Even if I find the rest, I will likely never identify most of these graves. The Julian Cemetery Association was formed to protect the graves.of these pioneers of Julian. Annie Crase, who is mentioned above, was likely the last of her family in Julian. Ironically, even though she helped to mark 129 graves in the cemetery, Annie has no marker. On November 20, 2010, at 11:00am, a new headstone will be placed upon her grave. The headstone is made of Julian schist quarried along Wynola Road. Pyramid Memorials engraved the headstone, and a great deal of thanks goes to them for doing such a fine job of engraving the irregular surface of the rock. November 20, 2010 marks the 140th anniversary of the Julian Cemetery. Marking Annie's grave will be a fitting tribute to this anniversary. The unveiling will be a simple event. The headstone will be revealed and I will say a few words about Annie. The public is welcome to attend.

Julian Merchant's Association And The Town Of Julian Extend Special Thanks To The Christmas Decorating Crews by Diana G#rrett You might have noticed last Wednesday, November 3rd, our town was decorated for Apple Days with glorious Fall colors. Almost overnight the decorations changed from Fall leaves to Christmas garlands, red bows and colorful lights. This wonderful transformation was performed by fabulous crews of volunteer workers headed up by Tracy Turner owner of Wynola Junction Antiques and president of the Julian Merchant's Association, Ed Glass, co-owner of Butterfield Bed and Breakfast, chairman of the Country Christmas committee and Mike Menghini, the owner of Menghini Winery and Julian's Chamber of Commerce president. ,CERT volunteers were there in great numbers and decorated half of Main Street and much of the side streets. The Sons of the American Legion were out to help us on Friday last(Ill12). They were great too. The Julian Woman's Club had several gals helping and many other people came to help as well. The spirit also hit some local young men who were shopping in Julian because they asked the decorating folks if they could help decorate. They were told, "Of course you can help, come back tomorrow and help usV' They came back the next day and proceeded to help put up garlands and lights. That is the true spirit of Julian! We have wonderful people here in our town that help to make this community what it is. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR ALL YOUR HELP! Celebrating Christmas is so special in Julian starting with the tree lighting ceremony the Saturday after Thanksgiving beginning at 4 PM , the performance of the Christmas Carol on weekends in December at the Town Hall and to top it all, the town is lit up so beautifully with sparkling white and colored lights every evening. Our town is so lovely both daytime and night time from now until Christmas. Are we lucky to live here or what? Corn Eagles Fly Past petition, Earn Citrus League Champions Title by Katie Newgard It was an average cold and blustery November day when the Julian High School Cross Country team piled into the school vans with anticipation and a mission. The Citrus League Championships on November 10, 2010 would be one of the most memorable days in Julian High Cross Country history. The course, hosted by Mountain Empire High School at Lake Morena Park, would be tough. But the athletes were not afraid to push themselves to the limit. Like in golf, the team with the lowest score is declared the winner. The top five runners on each team get their places score for their team, while the sixth lnd seventh runners try to push back the other athletes as far back as possible. For the boy's team, it wasn't a question of if they could score the lowest; it was how low they could go. Julian High School has gone undefeated in both League and CIF Division 5 for men's cross country all season, crushing every other opponent brave enough to take the challenge. This team consists of Senior Daniel Smith, Senior Justin Parr, Senior Joseph Munson, Senior Derek Rousseau, Senior Michael Hatch, Junior Dustin Jenson, Sophomore Steven Smith, and Freshmen Ben Beatty. And to add icing to the cake, Senior Daniel Smith is the top male runner for the Citrus League and Division 5 in the San Diego Section. The girl's team is no laughing matter either, even with only five runners. They run their hearts out, along with beating lots of competition on the way. This year's girl's team consists of Junior Katie Newgard, Junior McKenna Vandewalle, Junior Lonna Kelly, Junior and Taiwanese foreign exchange student Annie Chien, and Sophomore Charlie Beatty. The cold itself would be enough to psyche anyone Out, but not the Eagles. The girl's race began with the loud bang of the starting gun. The Lady Eagles pushed their competition hard through the rolling hills of Lake Morena Park. Completing a 5k in these conditions is no eas , task. In the end, Katie Newgard placed 6th, Charlie Beatty ran her best race of the season and placed 30th, McKenna Vandewalle placed 35th, Lonna Kelly placed 37th, and Annie Chien placed 48th. The girls placed 4th as a team with 96 points. On the boys side Daniel Smith placed 1st, becoming Julian's first ever individual male champion. Justin Parr placed 3rd, Joseph Munson placed 4th, Ben Beatty placed 6th, Derek Rousseau placed 8th, Dustin Jenson placed 10th, Steven Smith placed 14th, and Michael Hatch placed 18th. The boys dominated, or "left-bumpered" as they like to call it,. the first place spot as a team with 22 points. Julian is now the Citrus League Champions for the second year running. The second place team, Foothills Christian, scored 66 points. Victory was clear for the Eagles. Despite losing one Of their top boy runners earlier in the season and the girls just barely scraping by with a full team, the Eagles made an impression on this year's Citrus League. Daniel Smith, Justin Parr, Joseph Munson, Ben Beatty, Derek Rousseau, Dustin Jenson, and Katie Newgard all qualified for the All League team of 2010. With CIF finals just days away, there are many questions. Can Daniel become CIF Champion? Can the boys defend their CIF Champions title? Can Katie qualify for the State Finals? All these will be soon answered on November 20th. Come watch the Eagles soar at Morley Field in Balboa Park! Michael Hatch, Derek Rousseau, Steven Smith, Daniel Smith, Justin Parr, Joseph Munson, Ben Beatty , Dustin Jenson Julian boys successfully defended their League Championship and Daniel Smith winning the Individual League title for the first time in school history. photo by Coach Wolfe z7
