A Christmas Story - Book Signing Tuesday, December the 8th, at 6:00 p.m., there will be an author book signing at the Julian Library. It's a Christmas story titled "Moon's Unusual Christmas." The author is local resident Ben Wilson, a retired teacher and entrepreneur born in Anaheim, California, and raised in the Imperial Valley where he taught Special Education and ran a restaurant, the El Tiki Supper Club. Since he has been in Julian, he has joined the Chamber of Commerce, the American Legion, and the Lion's Club. He loves the Fine Arts field (music, writing, art, entertainment). The Christmas story book that Ben will be signing as the author was written over twenty-nine years ago. He has written other stories, but this one is his favorite. The illustrations were done by his eldest daughter, Teresa Wilson, when she was fifteen years old. Ben has sold a few books in Julian over the past few years, some at Lew's Coffee House. Presently they are being sold at Soundings. He also has a small book of children's stories available. The Christmas story is about a horse who helps Santa Claus out of a dilemma while Santa is on his way to deliver toys. The story happens in Arabia. Moon (the horse's name) is a part albino colt, white in color with pink skin and blue eyes. (True albinos have pink eyes). He was named by a girbel, a rodent resembling a prairie dog. Moon was born at night during a full moon. When the girbel saw the moon's reflection on Moon's white hair over pink skin, he began jumping up and down, squeaking, "Moon! Moon!" When Moon finally got to mingle with the other colts, they laughed at him when they saw his pink skin and his unusual deformity (it wasn't his shiny nose!) What is his deformity? Read the book. The book is a nice gift for children and grandchildren. My Thoughts by Michele Harvey My CERT Classes I have attended six CERT classes, six Monday nights in a row, and have just two classes left to graduate. Community Emergency Response Team classes are open and available to all adults, and teen classes will be available at Julian High School. Having lived through two fire evacuations in the past six years, and through countless earthquakes in my nearly sixty years as a San Diego County resident, I wanted to know if I could be better prepared for the next inevitable emergency that comes to my area. Because I've taken the CERT course, I believe I will be better equipped with knowledge that will enable me to help my family and neighbors cope and possibly live through the next big emergency here in the back country. In the CERT class we found out that in the last big earthquake in Mexico City, 100 untrained volunteers died because they didn't know when and when not to go into damaged buildings looking for survivors. We learned the way to organize disaster relief efforts and we learned the psychology of disaster relief. We now know how to put down a fire with a fire extinguisher; we know how to deal with people suffering mentally and physically from a disaster and how to recognize signs of shock. We know how to be first responders during any emergency that takes place through a wide area in our county. Since our back country population is so small compared to many of the areas between us and the coast, we've learned the importance of being self reliant because emergency agencies will help in the areas with the largest populations before they will ever drive to remote areas; if they can drive to remote areas. I think the CERT program is a very important informational tool for all who can take the classes. So many ideas that seem common sense aren't necessarily going to come to mind without training. During a disaster of any kind, it's important to know the best thing to do at the time when it seems the world as we know it is coming to an end. Johnny Hake, our local CERT director gave me two emergency kits in case of disaster or evacuation. Each can be put together in quantities to help ourselves and to help others in need. The smaller kit is basically a hygiene kit. We can make these ourselves easily and with minimal cost. In a one gallon Ziploc bag, put in two terry cloth hand towels, two combs, two bars of soap, and four tooth brushes. The kit Johnny gave me was donated by the Latter Day Saints Charities of Salt Lake City. I remember evacuating and feeling better when I got a moment to comb my hair and wash my hands and face. Those little niceties made me feel a bit less out of sync with the rest of the world. To the kit, I would add a bottle of liquid hand cleaner because we never know when we will be out of water. It would be good to have toilet tissue, facial tissues and paper towels together too. A bottle of bleach is a good idea too because bleach purifies water enough to drink with about thirty drops of bleach per gallon of dirty water. Not all dirty water can be purified enough to drink. However, adding bleach makes water safer than water with no bleach added. The larger kit that Johnny gave me is in a five gallon bucket with a lid on it. The bucket contains a small box of laundry detergent, a box of 39 gallon capacity black yard bags, nearly 20 reusable wiping cloths like Handi Wipes, a 25 oz. bottle of anti bacterial dish washing liquid, 7 sponges in assorted sizes, a heavy duty scrub brush with a handle, a 12 oz. bottle of Lysol, 2 pair of Latex gloves, a 6 oz. bottle of Cutter insect repellent, 100 feet of cotton clothesline, 50 wooden clothespins, a package of 5 dust masks and a pair of heavy duty leather palm work gloves. These supplies will be very helpful in cleaning up. Putting together these kits and storing them in a safe place can make a big difference in disaster preparedness. Add non perishable food and beverages, especially water, a box or two of wood stick matches with some high quality candles, (I like to use candles in jars or other containers) and you will probably find some peace of mind that you wouldn't have had without preparing for any disaster. Join the CERT classes to learn much more about how to handle disasters. You can reach Johnny and Diane Hake at certjulian@ to sign up for CERT classes. These are my thoughts.

The Julian News 5 Representing Victims of Serious Accidents Home Owner's Fire Insurance Claims Joseph T. Dibos Attorney At Law 619-235-0307 2445 5th Avenue, Suite 420 San Diego, CA 92101 The Justice and Compensation You Deserve Collectibles Gifts Jewelry Progressively Old Fashioned 2111 Main Street In qqae Heart of Downtown Julian Joe Cauzza May I introduce Joseph Ciro Cauzza, a seventeen year old senior at Julian High School. Joe was born June 25th, 1992 in San Diego, CA. Since Joe was a small child he has been involved in Martial Arts. As Joe advanced in karate he started to participate in Mixed Martial Arts. This is a hybrid sport allowing participation by all martial arts and hand-to-hand combat styles. As a result, participants must be well rounded in all techniques. There are many fighting forms used in MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) including American Kickboxing and Mauy Thai Kickboxin~i and wrestling forms such as Brazilian Ju-Jitsu and Shoot Wrestling. In addition to MMA Joe is actively involved in the Julian Fire Explorer program where young men and women between the ages of 14-20 get to work side by side with real fire-fighters and paramedics and respond to real emergencies. They also assist the paramedics and fire- fighters by performing routine, supervised tasks. In fact, when Joe was introduced to the Fire Explorer program, by one of his good friends it "changed his life", in that he was inspired to find within himself what he wanted to be in the world, a Fire-Fighter/ Paramedic. Knowing exactly what you want to be is a quality that not many young adults our age have. Besides Fire Explorers and MMA fighting, Joe likes to hunt as much as possible, and he is also a skilled welder! A skill he sharpens while in shop class with Mr. Fullerton. He was on the high school soccer team for three years, and enjoyed every minute of it! He likes to spend quality time with his girlfriend and to hang out with friends. All in all Joe is atremendous person, his aspirations to become a fire-fighter show courage and honor to help people in the face of danger, he is an outstanding athlete involved in Mixed Martial Arts, and is nothing short of a great person, Julian High School is lucky to have Joe Cauzza as an attending student. :,k** On the floor I am more at ease.
