My Thoughts by Michele Harvey More Disaster Preparedness Last week I wrote about preparing for major disasters. I've learned a lot in my CERT classes about disasters and how to deal with them. However there are so many ways we can all prepare ourselves for smaller inconveniences. This week I'm writing about smaller disasters. Getting stuck in a ar, living through power outages, and other unexpected short term inconveniences can be less of a problem if we are prepared. Having lived in these mountains for over twenty-five years, rve picked up some wisdom which I now share with you. I keep at least tank of gas in my car at all times. If I have to evacuate in a hurry and the local gas stations are closed, I may have to go quite a distance before I can find a place to fill my gas tank. Also, if I have to evacuate, I may not have money for gas. When we evacuated from the Cedar Fire; we had to drive from Wynola to the desert, and then to Temecula. Temecula was our first chance to buy gas.. I keep a blanket in my car at all times. Through the years rve used it to cover myself when the air is extremely cold and my car heater won't work. rve put it on the ground to slowly drive vehicles out of ice patches. On really hot days I've covered my steering wheel with my blanket when I park my car. I carry several bottles of water in my car, and some crackers, candy or nuts and a good book. I never know when I'll get stuck on the side of a road waiting for a tree limb to be cleared or for unexpected road work to keep me sitting in my car for long periods of time. In my car is a jacket, a terry cloth towel, a roll of paper towels, window cleaner, jumper cables, a box of Kleenex and sometimes a pair of clean, warm socks. They have all come in handy when needed. I also keep two carpet remnants in the trunk of my car. The bigger one is about 3 x 4 feet. I just never know when I might need one. At our house we keep some canned goods because they are a good source of liquid. We have bottled water, bleach to put drops in the water if we need it for drinking, blankets, sleeping bags, wood stick matches, candles and matches near candles and oil lamps. Duct tape is a necessity. It's so useful. One of my most interesting uses was to hold my tire chains together. Yes; it worked; but I don't recommend driving very far with this fix. Duct tape is so good for so many uses; we could probably even temporarily patch our roof with it. Disinfectant wipes are good to have in your home and in your car. Water to wash with isn't usually available during an earthquake or during a power outage. We are on a well and get our water when our electricity works. No electricity; no flowing water. I keep bottles of water in my freezer. When electricity goes out, the bottles of frozen water help keep food cold and when thawed, they are ready to drink or to use for cooking. We keep at least six 5-gallon bottles of water in case of emergencies. Sometimes they are really convenient for flushing toilets. Again, without electricity; we have no flowing water, so the 5-gallon bottles of water are great to have available. Antiseptics such as alcohol and peroxide are good to have. Bandages or old clean sheets that can be ripped into strips are good to have. A battery powered or wind up radio should be handy for listening to news updates. Flashlights and a supply of batteries, are a must have. It's important to keep at least a three day supply of food, drinking water, first aid supplies and a plan for shelter. It may take that long for emergency responders to reach you during any large emergency. All of us need to be as prepared as possible for the next disaster, whether it be large or small. Not only will we get through the emergency much better when we are prepared; we will also have peace of mind, having fewer reasons to get stressed. These are my thoughts. Smith-Leigh Wedding Planned Mr. and Mrs. Kenneth Smith announce the engagement of their daughter Caitlin, to Mr. Trenton Leigh son of Mr. and Mrs. Michael Leigh. They are pleased to announce the wedding will be on January 16th, 2010. Trenton currently is enlisted in the United States Marine Corps and is stationed at Camp Pendleton. Caitlin currently is selling Avon in the Julian, Warner Springs, and surrounding area. Trenton and Caitlin meet over a game of Goldfish, and have been together since November 14th 2008. They got engaged on August 28th, 2009, a week after Trenton came home from an 8 month deployment. They plan to live on Mesa Grande for the time being, and then move to Montana after Trenton gets out of the United States Marine Corps. The Julian News 5 Representing Victims of Serious Accidents .

She was born April 27th, 1993, in Las Gatos, California. Amber is a rare individual, in that you are not likely to meet someone with such talent and ambition. Going on five years now Amber has been a member of the San Diego Youth Symphony. Amber has first chair in the Philharmonia and principle chair in the San Diego Youth Symphony orchestra. Her specialty is the bassoon woodwind instrument. Every Saturday of every week Amber attends practice in Balboa Park under her Artistic Director Jeff Edmonds. Her practice is five hours long. The only break she gets is one two month break for summer, other than that she attends every week! She is looking forward to her audition for the All State Honor Band, and all Southern Honor Band. Soon she will be attending the Certificate of Merit a test of musical knowledge and skill, where you perform three songs in front of a judge, and also take a written test. How well you do on these things determines whether or not you can play a part in a conference. There are ten levels to the Certificate of Merit and Amber will be taking on level seven. Amber auditioned for a chance to attend the American High School Honors Performance Series in New York. Amber has multiple colleges interested in her such as: SDSU, UCLA, Chapman University, Harvard, and USC. Amber strives to attend USC Thornton School of Music, who is known for working with Disney. Her goal for the future is to be part of the London Symphony, and also to work under the famous Artistic Director Valery Gergiev. When Amber is not working on her music she likes to: spend time with her family as much as possible, read, and brush up on her Graphic Arts skills. Her favorite Authors are J.K. Rowling and Dan Brown. Amber has always loved playing soccer and was part of the girl's high school team. Amber Crowe is one of the most unique individuals attending our school; she is gifted in the art of music, a gift that many yearn to have. She is a fantastic student and a fantastic person. She is sure on the right track to making her mark on the world as a premiere bassoonist. Family Caregivers' Lunch Group Meets December 1 1 At Julian Coffee House The recently-formed "time out" lunch for caregivers to a family member will be held Friday, Dec. 11, 12 noon, at the Julian Coffee House, 1921 Main St. Open to the public, the get-together" offers a time of relaxation and friendship for those who are coping with the day-to-day responsibility of caring for a disabled or ill loved one. The monthly meetings offer respite for those who would enjoy informal events at which they can share common interests and situations. Members can order and pay for lunch at the counter, then join the group in the back room. Dessert will be provided. The need for a relaxed social outlet for caregivers is recognized by the Julian Woman's Club, which sponsors the friendly, informative, monthly gatherings for caregivers. At times, guest speakers with expertise in coping with situations will provide new insights on how to cope with the 24-7 stress of the family caregiver. The focus is on the unpaid family caregiver, not on professional paid caregivers, and formal instruction is not intended. "No dues, no duties, just friendship in a relaxed atmosphere," says Merleen Ottaviano, group chair. For information, persons may e-mail her at or call her at 760-765-3231. An RSVP is advised to ensure table space for all.
