The foundation of the RMS certification is the completion of courses that focus on risk mitigation. In order to apply for the certification program one must have been a REALTOR* for a minimum of two years, have taken or be enrolled to take 3 day course taught by legal profession- als on California real estate contracts, and must have completed a minimum number of transactions. Holding the RMS certification since 2008 is one of my proudest accomplishments. It was a two year time and financial commitment to providing my clients' the utmost stan- dard of professional care and excel- lence. Protecting my clients interests in the risky business of Real Estate sales is a constant and driving force in my professional occupation. The course curriculum includes classes intended to help agents un- derstand the intricacies of real estate contracts from listing or purchasing to closing, including the most current contracts commonly used. It is critically important that every real estate agent, whether they are representing the buyer or the seller, have a thorough under- standing of the forms they are using in a real estate transaction. 'This course, taught by real estate broker/attorneys, give students de- tailed information on the four basic contract agreements that residential real estate agents work with on a daily basis. The importance of property pricing, advertising, marketing, and proper disclosures are at the fore- front of our professional responsibili- ties. Under California law, real estate agents have a duty to provide honest and accurate information regard- ing their clients' property values and to be honest and fairin all dealings with parties involved in the real estate transaction. Few agents hold the RMS certi- fication, it is especially important in the backcountry area that your agent is prepared for the unique issues that may arise. Maintaining membership in good standing requires participa- tion in continuing education beyond the minimum requirements of state licensure. If you are looking to find a real estate agent with more qualifica- tions to represent your interests while mitigating the risk of real estate sales, please give me a call. I look forward to the opportunity to represent you for a property sale or purchase.

You probably also know that the weekend venue drew a crowd of more than 5,000. What you are not likely to know is the potential those 5,000 visitors represented to the businesses of Julian. We wanted to find out the answers to that question, so we asked visitors to the festival to complete and return a postcard asking four simple questions. Nearly 10% (472) of the visitors returned their postcard and here are their responses: Q: How did you hear about Apple Days? 3% Radio; 4% TV; 6% Flyer; 32% Online; 5% Magazine; 9% Newspaper; 30% Friend/Family; 1% Facebook; 10% Other. Q: Have you been to Julian Before? 84% Yes; 16% No • Q: While you are here, what else are you planning to do? 76% Eat at a Restaurant; 63% Shop; 19% Stay Overnight; 31% Wine Tasting; 23% Visit Historical Sites;11% Other things, like Apple Picking, Gold Mining, Etc. Q: Are you planning to return to Julian? 84% Yes; 0% No; 16% no response. We are excited by these findings to see that such a large number of the visitors had been to Julian before. And to see a huge opportunity to increase business in Julian by focusing on increasing the number of first time visitors. Obviously, once someone has come to Julian they are extremely likely to come again (84%). Consequently, the value of a first time visitor is quite high and worthy of our marketing efforts. We are also excited to see that so many of those visiting for a specific event are also planning to do other things while in Julian. In spite of food and shopping activities being at the event, significant majorities of visitors planned to expand their experience to include dining, shopping, site-seeing, etc. Our plan is to continue this polling process at each of our events in order to better understand the value of our events and to give us all important data that will help us all to build on the "Julian Experience" Thanks to you all for your continued support.

Preparing Your Child For Success In The Classroom (NAPSA) - Studies show that proficient reading skills are crucial to academic success. Yet two- thirds of eighth graders do not read at the "proficient" level, according to the 2011 Nation's Report Card, a report commissioned by the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP). "Building a literacy-rich environment at home can truly build lifelong readers and lead to success in school and in life," said Francie Alexander, chief academic officer at Scholastic• "Reading at home is a great way for families to take time out of doing 'homework' and turn reading into 'homefun.'" Parents can help prepare their children for success in the classroom by following a few tips on how to encourage reading outside of school every day: Make reading a social event: Family book clubs can be a great way to turn reading into a social activity while incorporating family and friends• Let your kids have a say: Let kids choose which books they want to read. Nine out of 10 children say they are more likely to finish books they choose themselves, according to Scholastic's 2010 Kids & Family Reading Report: Start the day right: Breakfast can help kids boost their academic performance by ncreasing their focus. Before heading out the door for school, have a complete breakfast. Cei'eal, fruit and milk is a convenient option that kids love. Turn reading into a fun family experience: Add fun to reading by having an animated, read-out- loud session during an afterschool break with snacks such as Nutri- Grain Cereal Bars or curling up with a great story before bedtime.

At some point during or before the monthly Mountain Manna food distribution on the last Saturday of October a thief took a large amount of Fair Trade coffee from a storage container at the back of the church. The coffee is grown by poor farmers in developing countries and its sale helps with their supports. Sherri Pope, who discovered the theft, estimates the value of the stolen coffee to be approximately $800. Shortly thereafter, most likely between November 7 and .November 9, the skylight of one of the storage containers was broken and, after the container was ransacked, more coffee and the change box from charity sales was taken. "Fortunately," says Pope, "most of the money had already been taken to the bank." The thefts were reported to the Julian Sheriff's Office. The Sheriff's Office declined to provide any information on the status of the investigation. The church has taken steps to increase security in all its buildings. If anyone has information regarding these thefts, please call the Methodist Church at 760 765 0114.
