As you might know there are a number of days/nights that 78/79 is immersed in clouds/deep fog which makes driving very hazardous, especially at night. There are daily commuters in this area that commute every day "down the mountain" And must return home in the dark through the clouds/fog with very poor visibility of the road, striping, and reflectors. My hope is that when CALTRANS resurfaces and restripes 78/79 sometime during the first half of next year that you will use the best available reflective paint; add more post reflectors; and do whatever can be done to improve road visibility for the residents of Julian and Wynola. I might add that highway 79 from the Paso Picacho campground / Lake Cuyamaca area to Julian is also a severe problem trying to navigate through the fog during the winter season. A good example of road improvement which CALTRANS was able to accomplish was on Poway road between Espola road and Highway 67. I expect CALTRANS to provide the same amount of road visibility attention and detail for the residents and visitors of Julian, Wynola, and its surrounding communities. Sincerely Yours, Conrad Kellenberger cc: Diane Jacobs, San Diego County Supervisor-2nd District cc: To the Editor-Julian News Editor; A couple of weeks ago, I called CaI-Trans regarding the side line stripe on Highway 78 from Julian to San Ysabel. It is difficult to see the line on rainy and especially foggy evenings. They were very courteous and called back in a few days to say that the next week there will be new lines painted with reflector or easier to see lines to make it safer for all of us. Thank You, CAL-TRANS. Laurel Granquist Julian How often things occur by the merest chance, which we dared not even hope for -- Terence / / / 92036 / / / r emQil: Living, Dying And Driving On State Highway 78 There have been many revealing and strident comments in the Ioco press (sorry...typo) of late, from people who know too well the extent of State Highway 78 between Julian and Ramona. I have been commuting on it for 20 years, so would like to weigh in with some thoughts roundabout. This should be the final word--which is one way of saying that the many responsive words on these heels will be ignored by me, the have-er of the last word. Foremost, we have lost several friends to 78 over the years. Of those, the most crushing for us was the loss of lan Kinney...a long time, and a short time, ago. He was a dear kid, and our son's hero. We miss him in so many ways. Violent vehicular death occurs on all roads; 78 is one of the worst, as it is only two-lanes and thick with fast traffic. A recent letter to the editor (from an unnamed contributor) mentioned the perils to fire and police personnel, and teachers. These professions, however, have very low death rates on the job. The highest (after loggers), are truck drivers, cab drivers, delivery men, and others who regularly drive the road to feed their families. In short, roads kill. More than bullets, more than fire, and more than whatever teachers might die from. The deadly incidents on 78 can never be forgotten by this small community. Yet, there are other phenomena worthy of note. One is that Caltrans has done a pee-poor job of making 78 safer. There is only one safe, well-marked turnout. There are many places to turn out, but there is not much planned formality to them. About 15 years ago I phoned Caltrans and spoke with the gentleman who was in charge of improvements on 78. When asked why there are not more safe turnouts, he said that new ones "are on the boards", but implementation would be a while yet. Hmmm, 15 years and no sign of it. They sure do stay busy stopping traffic to spread gravel along the road every year. Highway 79 has many inviting, well-marked and lengthy turnouts, and remarkably, much less traffic. So why not on 78, the more deadly, more trafficked one? The rights-of-way must exist, and if not, the price would be cheap...compared to the I-5 and 1-15 corridors. And compared to death. Well, it's on the "boards". And if you like anagrams, roadbs. Perhaps we could pass a bond measure to have Caltrans do what they have already been paid to do, eh? continued on page 13 Books The Julian BOOK HOUSEI Purveyors of l superb reading material 1 Selling Rare and Good Used Books Diana & Don Garrett - Owners 2230 Main Street P.O.
