November 18. 2009 All Your Tree Service Needs Commercial Making banking easier for, 1ou A Final Tribute To Tino Don't Put Off Until Tomorrow... by David Lewis It's happened to me again, and I should be ashamed of myself. At first I was just too busy to set myself to the task. I finally got off the proverbial dime and began an attempt to capture another aspect of Julian's history before it, or rather those who knew it, slipped through my hands. They say that we should learn from history and not repeat its mistakes. Better yet, we recognize a familiar pattern and take advantage of it. Sometimes a brush with death can narrow your vision and help you focus on the things we should realize are important. People have asked me if my own "who will blink first" encounter with death changed me, and I have to tell them honestly, that no, it did not. The one thing it did do, was cause me not to put things off...because you may never get another chance to get it done. When I decided to record the history of the dairies in Santa Ysabel and Mesa Grande, I wasted no time in getting started. I was astonished when Marco and Ernie Moretti agreed to do a video tape interview with me. Guys like that, the men from my dad's generation, are usually not inclined to speak in front of a camera. Hell, they are not really given to saying much at all. When Sonny and Adam Cauzza also agreed to be interviewed, I just could not believe my luck. I had now interviewed three generations of dairymen/cattlemen. I was getting life stories straight from the people who had lived them. So often the things I write about history are from fragments of a story and I must cobble them together to arrive at something that resembles the truth. Not this time! I had it all. I was having a hard time though, interviewing Tino Cauzza, Sonny's younger brother. Tino and I were just having scheduling problems. I love characters. I grew up with characters. Some were from my own family, and some were just town characters. These characters all had their own signature look, gesture, or behavior, which was theirs alone. The Cauzzas are no exception. Of the Cauzzas, I knew Elmo Cauzza first, and I can still clearly hear him speaking to this very day, although he passed away many years ago. I only now know that it was his Italian/Swiss accent that gave him his unique way of speaking. It's the way Sonny speaks today. Adam has it also. , Tino however, had his own voice.., his own character. I can still picture Tino talking to me on Main Street in Julian one day. Characteristically, Tino had his hands firmly planted in his jeans pockets. I loved the way he would start a sentence. Like a steer hooking at something, he would cock and dip his head down. His eyes would scan the ground at his feet and rise to meet yours as he began to speak. His reply usually began with a long drawn out, "Well...,"with a little shrug in his shoulders, and then his reply would follow. I really wanted Tino's story on video tape. But as we all know, Tino was going through some tough times and it seemed like there was never a proper time to do the interview. Butch Paddock had taken Tino out for a drive one day, and I saw him at the post office. I asked again about doing the interview and Tino said, "Just let me get my new leg...and then we will do it." Tino looked good that day, a sunny bright day full of optimism. I let things slide for a while, but then one night my wife came home and said Tino had taken a turn for the worse. It never seemed like the right time to ask for the interview after that. It upsets me that I did not do the interview in spite of everything. It upsets me more so that many people will never see what a great guy Tino was.
