Jay Mulder has been voted the recipient of the annual Ernie Maxwell Community Spirit Award for his service, dedication and devotion to removing litter from Highway 243, helping to keep it the scenic highway it is supposed to be. PHOTO BY JACK CLARK

Jay Mulder, a familiar figure on Highway 243, was voted recipient of the annual Ernie Maxwell Community Spirit Award. For all the years he has lived in Idyllwild, Mulder has picked up litter on route 243, a state scenic highway. Mulder has lived in Idyllwild for 11-½ years. Prior to moving to Idyllwild (Stonewood), he lived in Fallbrook. A landscape architect by trade (he retired in 2008), Mulder began his community service of picking up and disposing of litter on country roads in Fallbrook. “When I walked, the litter on county roads really bothered me,” he said. “So I began picking it up and disposing of it, separating and recycling what could be recycled. I just continued the practice when I moved to Idyllwild.”

On any given day, Mulder can be seen on Highway 243, from Idyllwild to the U.S. Forest Service Vista Grande station beyond Pine Cove, picking up litter carelessly left by those using the highway, the roadside, and scenic pullouts and stopping areas. The litter problem became even more acute, with greatly increased refuse, during the last few years of onslaught by snowplay visitors. “I work in 3-mile stretches and then dispose of what I’ve collected,” said Mulder. “The state park in Idyllwild has recycling bins and I use those.” Asked why he does this with such regularity and dedication, Mulder replied, “I do it because it makes me feel better, and I encourage more people to do the same. I’m 68 and I don’t know how long the knees will hold out.” He’s hoping, by his model, others will

begin and continue to preserve Highway 243 as a scenic highway and to retain Idyllwild’s reputation as having the “cleanest forest in America.” The honor, now in its seventh year, is given to an individual or group who best represents Maxwell’s spirit of community and volunteerism. After a Town Crier committee determines the top three nominees from the community’s input, the community gets to vote on the final awardee. Prior awardees, including the Mountain Communities Fire Safe Council, Dawn Sonnier, Robert Priefer, Annamarie Padula, Wendy Read and Janice Murasko/ Robert Hewitt, demonstrated a tangible and salutary effect on the community providing a spark of volunteerism that mirrored Maxwell’s dedication to the community and See Mulder, page A8

el and Colin, flew to the United States to learn more and hope something might turn up. They spent several days in Idyllwild, including a trip to the PCT where it crosses Fuller Ridge. “April 7 was the last time we heard from him,” said his mother. “He was in Idyllwild and there have been no more communications.” While here, his parents visited several places to which their son may have gone. “We went to the library. They have a board with PCT stuff and we saw a sticker from South Ireland,” Carmel said. “They remember him, but don’t know if he put the sticker on the board. It was nice to see he was there.” “The library would be ideal for him,” added Colin. Besides Idyllwild, the O’Sullivans visited with the police and others who have been

searching for David. “We just wanted to get them together,” they said. David, 25, left his home in Midleton, County Cork, Ireland, on March 20. A novice hiker, he started in Campo on March 22 and had planned a five-month hike of the entire PCT from the border with Mexico to that with Canada. “He hiked a bit, not a lot,” said Colin. “He was mostly a day hiker. But he did train with weights on his back. He walked every day with the weights.” David also tried to replicate the elevation he would be hiking on the PCT, but his father noted that the tallest peak in Ireland is 3,900 feet. “He did a lot of research about the trail,” Colin added. “He was very disciplined.” O’Sullivan is 5 feet 10 inches tall, weighs See Hiker, page A8

The travails of fighting fire in wilderness: Fly in helicopters but rely on mule teams for supplies Editor’s note: This is the second of two parts. The Salmon August Complex burned from July into October. The final U.S. Forest Service post about the complex fire was Oct. 6. From the middle of August until early September, Battalion Chief Mark LaMont of the Idyllwid Fire Department was a division group supervisor on the Wallow Fire, one of seven fires included in the Salmon August Complex. The first part appeared in the Nov. 9 issue of the Town Crier. By JP Crumrine News Editor As division group supervisor, Mark LaMont was preparing to head out to the fire front. He studied the maps for the three “Rs” — rivers, ridges and roads. These might be areas where his group could thwart the spreading fire. “It’s wilderness, so roads were out of the question,” he said. “There were some river drainages, but the number one tactical advantage would be ridge lines. That was one of the first things I looked for on the topo[graphical] maps.” With his plan, equipment and experience, he was ready to transport to the fire. Getting to the fire zone was a special experience, too. The first leg of the trip was a 40-minute helicopter jaunt. Once he landed, he then had a 5-mile hike. “My first thought was, ‘Wow!’ This is going to be as taxing a trip as I’ve ever been on,” he said. “The logistical support was overwhelming. It was an extremely remote locale.” After arriving and assessing the situation, he realized it was getting worse. The smoke was deep and unrelenting; visibility was negligible. “I had to plan on three or four days without any aircraft support,” LaMont noted. “If your plan depends on aircraft, you need a new plan.” The lack of air support and availability created another worry for the group leader. “What if someone got injured and needed medical treatment?” he asked himself. “I was very anxious about all the lives on the line that I’m responsible for.” To get supplies to the firefighters, base camp went “retro.” Mule teams became an absolute necessity. While

Idyllwild Water holds special meeting Only closed session topics,to be repeated this week By JP Crumrine News Editor The Idyllwild Water District directors held a special meeting Wednesday evening, Nov. 8. The two agenda items were both to be discussed in closed session. First, the directors were to evaluate Interim General Manager Jack Hoagland’s performance. Then they were going to consider a person for the general manager’s position. Thursday morning, Hoagland said, “There’s no reportable action from last night’s meeting.” The next regular IWD board meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, Nov. 15. The board did not explain why a special meeting this week was necessary to conduct the performance evaluation, especially since the board has scheduled a special meeting on Nov. 15, immediately following the adjournment of the regular meeting. This special meeting will address the same two items, and do so in closed session again.. Previously, the board confirmed that the general manager’s vacancy has not been advertised. The board, including the personnel committee, has been reviewing and revising the description of work for its general manager.

able to bring sufficient supplies, such as food, the mule teams still required four days to arrive. Until that first pack team arrived, LaMont and his team worried about running out of food. “I had to pay attention to how much food was being consumed. There was only a 96- to 120-hour supply.” And he worried that the firefighters’ morale might weaken, affecting productivity. But then it arrived and they had Alaskan fish, burritos — fresh food in the evening. “Meals cooked over campfires,” he said with a smile. Besides the food, rest is another important ingredient for firefighters. That included finding a comfortable place to sleep. “Almost impossible,” he added.

Idyllwild Fire committee satisfied with current budget status Mutual aid revenues increasing By JP Crumrine News Editor Through the end of its first quarter of the current fiscal year on Sept. 30, the Idyllwild Fire Protection District has a negative balance. However, that is usual for IFPD and many special districts that do not begin receiving property-tax revenue until December. The district’s finance committee reviewed the first-quarter data and discussed the status of its 2016-17 audit at the Nov. 8 meeting. This year, it had already prepared for the typically tight first-half-of-the-year cash flow by asking the county for a $400,000 advance of its property-tax revenue. Expenditures appear normal, according to financial consultant Rob Dennis. “The cash flow will be positive through the remainder of the fiscal year,” reported Battalion Chief Mark LaMont. “We’ll have the October financial report at the November commission meeting,” reported Chief Patrick Reitz. While some accounts, such as funding for the emergency medical services coordinator and minor equip-

Dead and Dying Bark Beetle Tree Removal Program Now is the time to remove bark beetle killed trees, before winter storm season starts. Winter snow, rain and wind events can cause additional negative impacts: broken branches and tops, and possible snapped or uprooted trees. The debris created by storms adds to wildfire fuel loads. Mountain Communities Fire Safe Council (MCFSC) has grant funds to help the homeowner pay only 35% of the cost to remove these trees by a licensed and insured tree contractor. Professionals understand how to remove trees safely so they do not fall on homes or other trees and licensed contractors carry insurance against damage or injury.

ment, already exceed the budgeted amount, Finance Committee Chair Jerry Buchanan said this issue would be reviewed at the committee’s January meeting. “We can move some funds around,” he told Dennis. Because of the many mutual-aid fire calls, to which IFPD responded, the revenue from mutual aid will be closer to $400,000 than the original estimate of $312,000, LaMont told the committee. Reitz, LaMont and Dennis have been working with the auditor, Fedak and Brown of Cypress, to complete the audit and have reviewed a draft. Reitz thought the final audit may be available for the November commission meeting or perhaps December. Buchanan expressed disappointment that the final audit would be done so late. He has encouraged the auditor to complete it sooner, such as October or November. Speaking to the current audit, Reitz said, “There are no surprises. Most recommendations are a repeat of the same as in prior years. But as a small district, we can’t afford to hire enough staff to satisfy all the ‘checks and balances.’ Given the size of the district, it’s very difficult to follow all of them.” “Ending the year on the positive side is the big take away,” Dennis added. “Revenues exceeded expenditures by more than $56,000.” JP Crumrine can be reached at jp@towncrier.com.

House burns down in Pine Cove; no one hurt

By JP Crumrine News Editor About 12:45 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 11, a structure fire was reported in the 52900 block of Fern Land Drive in Pine Cove. Cal Fire reported that a 2 1/2-story home and about a half-acre of vegetation were involved. Cal Fire (Station 23), along with firefighters from the San Bernardino National Forest’s San Jacinto

Ranger District and the Idyllwild Fire Department, all responded to the blaze. A total of nine engines, 30 firefighters and a helicopter participated in containing and controlling the blaze. “The cause of the fire was determined to be improperly disposed fireplace ashes. One adult male was displaced,” Cal Fire reported, and there were no injuries. JP Crumrine can be reached at jp@towncrier.com.

Santa Rosa fires spark controversy and reaction By JP Crumrine News Editor There is little doubt about the devastation caused by the Santa Rosa fires in Northern California last month (see “Former FSC president loses home in Santa Rosa fires” in the Nov. 9 issue of the Town Crier). The Tubbs Fire, one of several in Napa and Sonoma counties, burned through Santa Rosa with estimated damage costs exceeding $1.2 billion. Since then, commentary about the blazes and subsequent actions has been prompt and occasionally controversial. The California Chaparral Institute of Escondido has openly pleaded with the media to correct accounts that have been printed in the West about the native

fuels feeding the fire. Last week, the California Public Utilities Commission imposed new regulations on utilities in an effort to reduce the risk of wildfires caused by faulty transmission lines. Richard Halsey, president of the Chaparral Institute, was concerned about an article that appeared in the High Country News (www.hcn.org/articles/wildfire-what-role-did-wildlands-play-in-californiaswine-country-fires). After interviewing a Cal Fire official and professors at both the University of California, Berkeley, and Humboldt State, the author not only described the topography and vegetation in the burned area, but wrote the following: “And both forests and shrublands were overgrown, choked with un-

derbrush and small trees that provided a continuous source of fuel as the fires moved across the hilly terrain.” In Halsey’s email to Southern California media, “A plea to journalists,” Halsey wrote, “Portraying the ecology of the region as ‘choked’ by native shrublands not only demonizes California’s richly biodiverse, characteristic habitat, the chaparral, but fails to come close to explaining why and how the fires occurred. … the article simply repeated hackneyed phrases over-used to describe fires in the western US.” Halsey’s point was that building housing developments in areas that are naturally prone to fires is poor planning. And inadequate fuel abatement exacerbates the potential threat. He pro-

vided a map comparing the Tubbs Fire with the 1964 Hanley Fire. Their boundaries are nearly identical. Halsey continues with the comparison and argues that the local planning commission erred in permitting a housing development in such a fire-vulnerable area. Further, although the High Country article, based on interviews shortly after the fire, said it started well into the wildland, more recent investigations appear to locate the ignition near a local highway. Litigation has been filed against Pacific Gas and Electric Co. blaming its power lines, but last week PGE responded with a counter claim that a private power line in Napa County may have started the fire.

Pine Cove staff installs pipeline for less than $100 per foot By JP Crumrine News Editor Financial issues — past and future — dominated the discussion during last week’s Pine Cove Water District board meeting. General Manager Jerry Holldber reported on the costs of the recently completed South Central Pipeline Project, which is in the Nestwa Trail neighborhood. Work took 40 days from late August until early November. District staff replaced nearly 1,200 feet of old pipe, with a new 8-inch main line and 180 feet of 6-inch main line. The total cost of $116,500 resulted in a per foot cost of slightly more than $98, Holldber told the board. The total cost included labor, materials, use of equipment and permits and mapping, and three hydrants, which cost about $9,000. Community Service Area 38 reimbursed PCWD for the costs. Construction labor costs were about $36,000 and were for district personnel only. Holldber used only non-district personnel for the mapping and survey work. The two employ-

ees, whom he complimented, were Jeremy Potter, field foreman, and Matt Wheeler. “It was a little more than I thought, but overall very reasonable,” Holldber said. “You can’t hire a contractor for that much.” The new pipelines will improve water flow in the event of fire, he explained. “Since much of the district is surrounded by national forest, we don’t have to worry about significant growth.” The next project will be pipeline in the Laurel Trail and Pine Ridge areas, according to Holldber. The current budget has funds for a new tractor. Holldber told the board he found one for $20,000 less than the initial estimate. Regarding future finances, Holldber told the board he plans to have John Egan, PCWD’s engineer, at the January meeting to discuss the costs of water production and system maintenance. These data will be used to develop future rates. “He is doing several things — collecting data, such as pipeline repairs and replacement and energy costs, which will help See PCWD, page A7

By Becky and Jack Clark Co-publishers Ten businesses are Town Crier Members: Baily Winery; The Family Business (tax preparation); Everitt’s Minerals & Gallery; Fern Valley Inn; Idyllwild Backhoe; Idyllwild Vacation Rentals; Middle Ridge Winery Tasting Gallery; The Red Kettle (restaurant); Sandlin & Son Refrigeration; and Sub Rosa Apothecary. Also, three nonprofit organizations and two public agencies have joined as Members: Idyllwild Arts Academy; Friends of San Jacinto Mountain County Parks; Hemet Public Library; St. Hugh’s Episcopal Church; and one anonymous public agency. The Red Kettle is the first business making special discounts available to all Town Crier Members. We very much appreciate the contributions all these businesses and nonprofits are making toward keeping a real newspaper on our Hill. Please remember to support these business and organizations that are supporting your community newspaper. Meanwhile, more and more readers of the Town Crier on and off the Hill are converting their old subscriptions into new Memberships. This can be done at any time; no need to wait until your old subscription runs out. Becky is adept at tacking on remaining subscription weeks onto new Membership dates, so you will lose nothing. You will gain uninterrupted, continued subscriptions to both printed and online issues of the Town Crier, our “Idyllwild Town Crier Member” car-window decal, designed to be displayed on the “inside” of the window to encourage others to join us, in-print recognition of your Membership in the Town Crier (unless you request anonymity, which we kind of hope you don’t do since your Membership will encourage your friends and associates to join also), occasional offers from local businesses (see the current offer by The Red Kettle in the following paragraph), invitations to what we hope will be an annual Town Crier Membership Party, and — most important of all — the satisfaction of knowing you are doing your part to save and support a real newspaper on our Hill. Currently, subscribers are converting their old subscriptions to new Town Crier Memberships at the rate of about 10 to 15 each week. If this continues until the one-year anniversary of the Membership model (Aug. 17, 2018), we can expect 400 to 500 more new Memberships. This will bring the Town Crier to around 700 total Memberships at various membership levels, which — assuming they carry on — can result in the sustaining of our community’s newspaper year after year.

Editor: In a couple of weeks, I will have lived here for 44 years. So, I was here when we had a park, “Eleanor Park.” in the center of our small town. And I was here when Jimmy Johnson opened what he dubbed The Tax Shelter, a hot dog stand, something that could be used to help pay the property taxes on what was obviously a prime piece of real estate. As the park was named for Johnson’s mother, he, along with most of us, preferred to see the parcel remain a park. So, as I recall it, an offer was made: For a $50 onetime property owner assessment, “we” could own the parcel and preserve it as a park. We voted on the measure. I pressed everyone I knew to vote for this. But I was shocked at how many people said they weren’t going to, reassuring me with, “Don’t worry, Dennis, it will always be a park.” They were wrong. But now, the Butterfields, in an act of astonishing civic generosity, are giving us back “our” park. The article in your paper about this shouldn’t have been in a small box on page three. It shouldn’t even have been the center piece of your front page. It should have been the front page. You buried the lede, the most impressive lede you’ve had all year. But enough of complaining. I appreciate the Town Crier for letting us know. I appreciate Dave and Loie Butterfield for their generosity, and to Shane Stewart and Bob Hughes for their efforts. I, for one, am smiling a grateful smile. Dennis McGuire Idyllwild

A sponsorship again for immigration Editor: My aunt and uncle who lived in Utah sponsored me and my daughter in 1956 to immigrate to the United States. A sponsorship meant you took responsibility for the person or persons you signed for. The authorities kept track of all immigrants. It took more than two years to be granted our visas. I was thoroughly checked out coming from East Germany. Rightfully so, you should have enough education to find a job and not be a burden — to give and not to take. We should go back to those rules. They worked. The ones without a sponsor should be able to support themselves. They also should pledge to obey the laws of the United States and become proud citizens. Ronald Reagan said years ago that if you’re lucky enough to live in the United States, you are lucky enough. Freedom is not free. We have to protect it. I love you, America. You have my back.

A Healthy Idyllwild

Social support is good medecine By Callie Wight Nothing in this article is meant to be medical advice. Please consult your own healthcare provider. Some info below taken from: Tedeschi, R. G., & Calhoun, L. G. (1995). “Trauma & transformation: Growing in the aftermath of suffering.” Thousand Oaks, CA: Sage Publications. https://positivepsychologyprogram.com/wp-content/ uploads/2017/07/SERNA-JOE-Comprehensive-Soldier-Fitness.pdf www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC 2891543/ www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC 5480897/ What pops out of most research studies as the indispensable factor that supports recovery, resiliency and post-traumatic growth after exposure to trauma? Social support. An enormous amount of research supports what common sense tells us: The social support that a community provides traumatically wounded members benefits the entire community. In both good and bad times, members of supportive, interpersonally connected communities have better mental health, higher levels of subjective well-being, and lower rates of illness and death over-all. This “community” can be small, as in a close partner, or large, as in a village. Reaching out to provide care, to bind emotional and physical wounds, is human nature. Needing, seeking and accepting that care when wounded is also human nature. Both are healthy responses to adversity. Caring for others and being cared for benefits all. What is social support? Overall, caregivers are providing emotional comfort, restoring a sense of security, facilitating problem resolution, and providing opportunities for further post-traumatic growth and fulfillment. This overall complex of caring may well require a village — individual as well as group support. More specifically, we are creating a safe space for the wounded member to be vulnerable and dependent — for a time. We offer ourselves to listen to the negative emotions engendered by the hurt. We provide physical aid to relieve burdens. We protect the wounded from further harm. We do all this nonjudgmentally, with genuine acceptance and understanding. Of critical importance to the post-traumatic growth of the wounded, we also support his/her strengths and abilities to cope and move on, to rebuild a life perhaps even richer than what went before. We daringly support the once-wounded-now-recovering to use the harmful as a means to achieve positive change. What of the wounded and cared-for? What is his/her part in this complex of social caring? In the best scenario, the wounded reaches out for and accepts caring help. This takes courage to trust another after traumatic wounding. The traumatized community member then will, hopefully, begin to feel restored — slowly, with time. When able, the wounded then accepts the responsibility of post-traumatic growth. Each to his/ her own timetable here. Healing is not linear. We might think of it as more of a spiral. The spiral naturally routes back on itself, revisiting the nodal points of suffering. Importantly, though, this is never returning to the actual starting point, even though it often feels to the wounded as if he/she has made no progress at all. Once the first step in a life-changing journey of growth and recovery has been taken, we have stepped off the platform, and even though we may route back to the nodal points, we are never the same person each time. In real life, suffering and growth co-exist. Callie Wight is a California state-licensed registered nurse with a Master of Arts in psychology.

State agency anticipating cannabis business regulation By JP Crumrine News Editor The state, as well as Riverside County, is reviewing and developing ordinances and regulations for California’s future cannabis industry. Last month, the State Water Resources Control Board approved a set of policies to protect stream flow and water quality in areas where cannabis will be cultivated. Commercial cannabis cultivation is expected to grow significantly in the state and will need plenty of water. Cultivation will spread to new areas of California following the adult-use legalization this coming January. “We are establishing the environmental protection rules of the road needed to deal with the expected expansion of cannabis cultivation statewide,” said State Water Board Chair Felicia Marcus in a press release. “… action creates a strict set of rules cannabis cultivators will need to follow in order to protect water quality and quantity. We will work closely with other state agencies to make sure cultivators are aware of these rules and are following them.” The SWRCB policy will require both a permit and a water right. The water quality permit will be called Statewide General Order for Cannabis Cultivation Activities (Cannabis General Order). The permit or General Order will authorize the discharge of waste, which is the result of cannabis cultivation (indoors or outdoor), into streams and creeks. A personal-use exemption will be available if the disturbed land is less than 1,000 square feet. The water right is referred to as a Cannabis Small Irrigation Use Registration. The permit will have two tiers; less than an acre, and equal to or greater than an acre. A fee will be imposed based on the site complexity and threat to water quality. The state permit will address various issues. In its release, the SWRCB listed the following areas to be considered when issuing a cannabis General Order Permit: streams and wetland management; water diversion, storage and use; irrigation runoff; land development and maintenance; land erosion control and drainage features; soil disturbance; stream crossing installation and maintenance; fertilizer, chemical and soil use, and storage; cultivation-related waste disposal; refuse and human-waste disposal; and winterization (preparing post-harvest lands for adverse winter-weather conditions). Besides discharge into public waterways, the policy also addresses water diversion. There will be conditions and review to ensure cannabis cultivation does not affect stream flows needed for fish, and maintains and protects aquatic habitat and resources.

According to the SWRCB release, the agency will monitor and protect stream flow through the review of the following measures: maximum allowable diversion rates; minimum amount of water that must be left in the stream; no diversion during dry season; groundwater pumping restrictions, if necessary, to protect surface flows; and water conserving irrigation methods. The policy will become effective after its approval by the state’s Office of Administrative Law, which is expected later this year. Other Cannabis regulation Last week, California Department of Tax and Fee Administration announced that individuals planning to sell cannabis or cannabis products after Jan. 1, 2018, must register with the CDTFA for a seller’s permit. Cannabis cultivators, processors, manufacturers, retailers, microbusinesses and distributors who make sales will be required to obtain and maintain a seller’s permit as a prerequisite for applying for a license with the Bureau of Cannabis Control, the Department of Food and Agriculture, or the Department of Public Health. According to the CDTFA press release, registration may be done on its website. Also, distributors of cannabis and cannabis products must also register with the CDTFA for a cannabis tax permit, which is separate from a seller’s permit. The tax permit will be used to report and pay the two new cannabis taxes to the CDTFA starting in January 2018. Registration for the cannabis tax permit will be available on November 20, 2017. Cannabis taxes As of Jan. 1, buyers of cannabis and cannabis products will pay a 15-percent excise tax, which retailers will be required to collect. The second tax will be imposed on the cultivation of cannabis that enters the commercial market. Cultivators will be required to pay the tax to either a distributor or manufacturer depending upon the nature of the transaction. The cultivation tax rates are $9.25 per dry-weightounce of cannabis flowers, and $2.75 per dry-weightounce of cannabis leaves. As Riverside County considers, if it will regulate cannabis businesses within the county, a separate county tax is part of these deliberations. Individuals who operate a cannabis business that does not make taxable sales will need to obtain a certification letter from the CDTFA indicating their business does not require a seller’s permit.

SANTA ROSA Continued from page A3 he said. “We are trying to create formulas to show how costs are derived, and provide this for the customers and public. This will be the methodology to support whatever we charge.” Egan will discuss delivery charges and monthly charges during his presentation. “We’ll want both short-term and long-term plans from him,” recommended President Robert Hewitt. In water news, Holldber reported that October’s water production was 3 million gallons, which was 350,000 gallons more than last year, and about 200,000 gallons greater than September’s production. For 2017, production since January has been 31.8 million gallons compared to 27.3 million in the same period of 2016. This has been the result of the water theft (reported in earlier Town Crier issues) during the spring and summer. The last time the PCWD production was at this level was in 2007 and 2008. “Over the past 10 years, October’s production has ranged from 2.6- to 3.2-million gallons,” he said. “Everything indicates it is normal.” The static well maintained its ground level and several operational well levels increased. “There’s still a good amount of water still moving through the ground,” Holldber said. “Enough that the well levels are not dropping.” JP Crumrine can be reached at jp@towncrier.com.

Three traffic incidents on Hill roads last week One involving 10 people, two vehicles and serious injuries There were three traffic collisions on Hill roads last week. At 3 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 11, Spencer Kincaid, 18, of Idyllwild, was stopped at a stop sign on Marian View Drive near the intersection with Highway 243 in a white 2002 Toyota Tacoma truck. At the same time, Patricia Stastny, 83, also of Idyllwild, was driving a gray 2014 Honda Civic southbound on Highway 243 when she made a right turn onto Marian View Drive, sideswiping Kincaid’s vehicle just west of the intersection. There were no injuries in the incident and both vehicles were able to be driven from the scene. At 8:30 a.m. Sunday Nov. 12, Zachary Fine, 25, of Rancho Cucamonga, was driving a black 2016 Ford Mustang north on Highway 243. At the same time, Ruth Capers, 75, of Idyllwild, was driving a gray 2010 Toyota Prius east on Tollgate Road. Fine made a left turn onto Tollgate and collided with Capers’ vehicle causing enough damage that both vehicles had to be towed from the scene by Idyllwild Garage. There were no injuries in the incident. And at 12:03 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 12, a serious crash involving 10 people in two vehicles took place on Highway 74, mile marker 80.81, 180 feet west of Indio Road in Pinyon. Gustavo Valenzuela, 31, of San Tan Valley, Arizona, was driving a 2017 Dodge Journey eastbound on Highway 74 with six passengers in the vehicle. At the same time, Allison Stone, 17, of Palm Desert, was driving a 2006 Polaris Ranger off-road vehicle north from a dirt or control road. Coming onto Highway 74, Stone’s vehicle collided with the Dodge, the left front of the Ranger hitting the right front of the Dodge. In the Ranger with Stone were Evan Lieghy, 17, and Sloan Cole, 15. Stone was flown by Mercy Air to Desert larly published once a week or oftener, with at least 5 days intervening between the respective publication dates not counting such publication dates, are sufficient.

Kellner skips court date Probation revoked By JP Crumrine News Editor Michael Darranger Kellner, 24, of Idyllwild, failed to appear in court for his Nov. 7 hearing so the District Attorney’s Office motioned to revoke his probation from earlier convictions. As a consequence, Judge Dennis A. McConaghy, who presided over the scheduled hearing, did revoke probation, and issued a warrant and citation for Kellner, as well as resetting bail at $5,000. Kellner was granted three years’ probation in April 2017 for pleading guilty to possession of controlled substance, which was a misdemeanor conviction. Recently, he was arrested for suspicion of stealing a tip jar from Christian Chalifour, a local harpist, performing outside in Strawberry Creek Plaza. The theft occurred Sept. 15. He also has been cited for two illegal entries. These potential crimes, even though charged as misdemeanors, caused the District Attorney to file the revocation of probation motion.

Help Continued from A1 obvious cash. Its food pantry is very lean, said Colleen Meyer, the center’s executive director. “We’re lagging this year,” Meyer said, describing the pantry’s status. “It may have been our message. Part of our challenge is telling people what we need.” Food, high protein, nonperishable and easy to cook, is the need. The number of clients has nearly quadrupled from the 150 in 2007. Last year, the Help Center distributed more than 2,000 food bags. Meals are needed every month, not just from Thanksgiving to New Years. “We’re really seeing more young families with children,” she added. Besides canned goods and dry products, the center provides food vouchers for clients. These can be used at either Fairway or Village markets. Some, such as the Associates of the Idyllwild Arts Foundation, are aware of this need. It has begun a food drive on the Idyllwild Arts campus. It plans to deliver the donations before the Fall Break on Nov. 17. Then, when students return to campus after the break, it plans a second delivery on Dec. 15. But food is only one survival service the Help Center provides. As winter

Mulder Continued from A1 his many volunteer activities that benefitted the community. “Volunteering is the spirit of this community,” said Mulder. “I truly do not do what I do for any attention. I do it because it needs to be done and it gives me satisfaction to do it. And Idyllwild has this mentality about helping and volunteering that I fit with. It’s an honor to receive the award.” In nominating Mulder, Pine Cove Marcia Krull had this to say. “Today I saw him hitchhiking not far from Lake Fulmor, and although I almost never pick up hitchhikers [except for PCT hikers], I recognized him and pulled over to offer him a ride. During our ride, I learned that he has been picking up litter along the highway since he moved to the Hill eleven years ago.

approaches and temperatures drop, clients can get firewood. The wood is the product of fire abatement by the Woodies of the Mountain Communities Fire Safe Council. Families often need winter jackets or snow boots for the children. “We also are seeing an increase in seniors with healthcare problems, such as surgery or worker’s compensation injuries,” Meyer said. “Nearly two-thirds of the senior disabled clients are alone and have limited incomes. We’re seeing a huge need for medical assistance.” The Help Center not only organizes the annual Health Fair, which was last weekend at Fern Creek Medical Center, but provides vouchers for medical care or even money to purchase gas in order to get to an appointment, such as cancer therapy. “Idyllwild is special. Here you feel it is truly neighbor helping neighbor,” Meyer said proudly. Then she quoted the center’s Client Services Administrator Skye Zambrana: “When someone first needs the Help Center it may feel like the worst day of their life; but it’s also the first day it starts to get better.” The Help Center phone number is 951-659-2110. Donations may be made online by visiting their website at http://idyllwildhelpcenter.org/donate-2/ He does it for two reasons: for exercise and for community service … With no reward other than the satisfaction of doing a job that makes our community more attractive and more welcoming to residents and visitors alike, Jay is one of the quiet, unassuming angels that seem to gravitate toward our beautiful mountain village … By his actions, with no recompense or recognition, Jay has shown himself to be the kind of person who makes a difference in our community. For this reason, I am happy to nominate him for the Ernie Maxwell Community Spirit Award.” Said Tim Doyle, Pine Cove resident, “After seeing the article in the Town Crier about the Ernie Maxwell award, my first thought was about this man, Jay Mulder, who has done so much for our community without recognition. I believe now is the time.”

In an email after returning to Ireland, Carmel wrote, “Myself and my husband received the warmest welcome from the people of Idyllwild for which we are grateful. As you can imagine we arrived under very difficult circumstances looking for information about our missing son. We hope your story will jog the memory of someone who may have given him a lift out of town on April seventh and place him on the correct trail for the searchers who go out on trail at weekend.” They asked if anyone

House wants to fund fighting wildland fires without borrowing Forest Service funding By JP Crumrine News Editor The House of Representatives passed “The Resilient Federal Forests Act of 2017” on Nov. 1. The legislation (H.R. 2936) has moved to the Senate for review. While it addresses many national forest management issues, such as environmental reviews and litigation, funding for fighting wildfires is the issue, which affects Hill communities. After its passage, Rep. Bruce Westerman (R-AR) who introduced the bill, said in a press release, “… We must end the practice of fire borrowing and treat wildfires as the natural disasters they are, funding recovery efforts through FEMA. We

Wildfires Continued from page A3 cannot be denied, it clearly re-enforces the multiple and annual encouragement from local fire officials — federal, state and local — to Hill residents that fire abatement is a necessary, not optional, tool to reduce fire threat and protect homes. This also was one of the conclusions of the High Country News article: “Experts say that it’s already clear that to protect communities in the future, fighting fires will not be enough. Communities near forests and shrublands

must do what is right for our environment and stop these catastrophic wildfires …” This legislation, if passed, would allow the president to declare major wildfires a natural disaster under the Stafford Act, making emergency funding available for suppression and prevent “borrowing” funds from non-suppression accounts. However, the White House is not fully supportive of the bill. In a letter to Congress, the Office of Management and Budget wrote, “The Administration strongly believes that funding for wildland fire management must be addressed in order to enable the Forest Service and the Department of the Interior to better manage the Nation’s forests and other public lands.

“The Administration, however, has concerns with re-purposing the Stafford Act to address wildfires. The purpose of the Stafford Act is to assist State, local, tribal, and territorial (SLTT) governments that become overwhelmed when responding to and recovering from natural disasters affecting their jurisdictions. H.R. 2936 would modify the Stafford Act by creating a new type of disaster declaration to address the cost of wildfire suppression on Federal land, thereby changing long-standing principles governing Federal support to SLTT governments.” The Senate is preparing a hearing on H.R. 2936.

need to cut down some trees and remove the underbrush or use controlled burns.” Consistent with this approach, the CPUC recently proposed new regulations for utilities to improve protection of power lines in high fire-threat areas. One new step is the decision to employ the state and federal fire-threat maps. Based on the fire-threat map, the new regulation will expand utilities’ responsibilities in high-fire areas. Among the new requirements are to increase clearances between vegetation and power lines throughout the High Fire-Threat District; to create

more stringent wire-to-wire clearances for new and reconstructed facilities in Tier 3; and to conduct annual patrol inspections of their overhead distribution facilities in rural areas of Tier 2 and Tier 3. A Tier 3 area is defined as “areas on the CPUC Fire-Threat Map where there is an extreme risk for destructive utility-associated wildfires.” The whole proposal and all requirements can be found at the CPUC site or online at the Town Crier. The CPUC will consider and vote on the new requirements at its Dec. 14 meeting in San Francisco.

IDYLLWILD, CA

A small-town Thanksgiving out of Currier and Ives By Marshall Smith Staff Reporter There is something quintessentially quaint and picturesque about holidays in Idyllwild. And situated above 5,000 feet on a mountain, Idyllwild is an alpine respite from the sun and palm trees of adjacent communities in Southern California. The Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays are often celebrated with dustings of snow on the mountain ridges, the last of fall’s brightly colored leaves loosening their grip on treetops and swirling downward, carried by the gentle gusts of an approaching winter. Complementing that Currier and Ives picture postcard are the smalltown holiday celebrations for which Idyllwild is known. If you want to step back in time for an old-fashioned holiday, Idyllwild is the place to do so. Thanksgiving weekend ushers in the holiday season with generosity of spirit and friendliness. On Thanksgiving Day, from noon to 2 p.m., the American Legion Post 800 serves a free Thanksgiving dinner, turkey and all the trimmings, with a fire blazing in the fireplace, and holiday warmth for all. On Friday, Nov. 24, beginning at 9 a.m., the Idyllwild Rotary Club presents its 51st-annual Harvest Festival in the gymnasium of Idyllwild School featuring unique mountain arts and crafts, homemade bakery items, delicious Idyllwild food and holiday gift items. Tickets can be bought for a Saturday gift basket raffle. Festivities continue until 5 p.m. with the Idyllwild Shuttle providing pickup and return service. On Saturday, the festival resumes at 9 and runs until 3 p.m. to give attendees time to get to the weekend highlight — the Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony in the center of town. The gift basket raffle drawing takes place at 3 p.m. on Saturday in the gym at the conclusion of the Harvest Festival. From 1 to 3 p.m. Saturday, Santa Claus will be in his workshop in the gazebo of Village Centre for visits with Idyllwild and visitor children. Local nonprofit booths line the town square throughout the day

beginning at 10 a.m. Food, gift items and photo opportunities are provided by 17 participating organizations. Highlights include Lou Padula’s famous hot dogs, Soroptimist International of Idyllwild’s cookie decorating booth and the $250 Money Hat drawing, T-shirts, hats, totes and cute pets for adoption from Living Free Animal Sanctuary, Mountain Quilter’s opportunity quilt raffle, and artwork and other holiday items from the Art Alliance of Idyllwild. Christmas carolers, Christmas music, and holiday shopping, foods and good cheer enliven the village throughout the day. Then, at 4:40 p.m. the 57th-annual Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony and Olde-Fashioned Christmas begins. Master of Ceremonies Sandii Castleberry will host a program that includes Diane Burt’s Grammy-nominated Caroling Company, Doug Austin and the Olde English Theatre Players, Kathy Lewis and the Idyllwild Children’s Choir, Mayor Max and his Chief of Staff Phyllis Mueller, audience sing-alongs, arrival of Santa and Mrs. Claus by fire truck and the countdown to the illumination of more than 6,000 lights on Idyllwild’s 100-foot tree. All lights but those on the tree are turned off while the audience sings “Silent Night.” Next year, the ceremony will feel somewhat different because the town square in which the tree is located will once again be a park rather than the site of a restaurant. Marge Muir, a longtime lead organizer of the ceremony, had this to say at the prospect of the return of the town center to a park: “I think the tree is smiling.” Donations to support the annual Tree Lighting Ceremony can be placed in the red cans marked “donations” at the ceremony and at Santa’s workshop. Note “Tree Lighting Ceremony” on checks made out to Soroptimist International of Idyllwild. Local restaurants serve holiday fare, and galleries and shops are open for browsing. Check the Town Crier’s Arts & Entertainment Calendar for other events during the weekend. Marshall Smith can be reached at marshall@ towncrier.com.

Although not formally open, Idyllwild’s new pickleball courts had a trial run on Sunday. Here, volunteers Mike Cole (left) and Elliott Taylor are hard at work to get the courts ready for community players. There are still infrastructure elements that need to be completed before formal opening, including landscaping to hold down dirt and keep it from getting on the courts, and bleacher installation, which should occur in three weeks or so. More information will come in updates regarding formal opening of the courts. PICTURE BY BARRY ZANDER

Kelly Claar, superintendent of the Salton Sea State Recreation Area, spoke to members and guests of the Idyllwild Rotary Club on Wednesday, Nov. 8, about the future of her park. Admitting that the lack of water would prevent the Salton Sea from ever returning to its heyday, when it had more visitors than Yosemite National Park, Claar mentioned the beauty of the area and its importance as a recreational area and bird refuge, which makes a great place to visit.

Actor, singer and dancer next at Idy Talks By Marshall Smith Staff Reporter Idyllwild Arts Academy junior and musical theater major Geronimo Angel Gutierrez is the next speaker at Idy Talks. The speaker series, once done in conjunction with the Idyllwild Community Center, is now a solo series produced by the academy. Geronimo, born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and now a resident in Medellin, Columbia, came to IAA in the ninth grade, originally to study dance. While taking voice lessons, Geronimo also began to be involved with acting. Now his focus is to become proficient in all three required aspects of having a successful career in musical theater — dancing, singing and acting. Before coming to Idyllwild Arts, Geronimo studied dance and competed both in New York and Los Angeles in state and national dance competitions. “Eventually, I drifted away from the notion of competing for trophies. I wanted to study where it was all about technique and performance, not about winning competitions.” He had heard about Idyllwild Arts through family friends and came to the academy to develop a career as an artist, learning technique and ensemble performance — as a dancer, as an

actor and as a singer. On advice from Theatre Chair Bonnie Carpenter to broaden his palette of artistic disciplines and in order to become more marketable, Geronimo is planning to take songwriting courses. That also fits with his love of pop music, as well as musical theater. He also wants to learn the business of the entertainment business — how to navigate as a professional performer. While recognizing the competitiveness of the entertainment business, especially in musical theater and pop music, Geronimo also is clear that his goal is to become authentically himself. “I think everyone should embrace their own quirks, who they are uniquely rather than to try to become someone else,” he said. “There are so many talented people. I think the goal should be to use the transformative power of art to be yourself. That, I believe, is how I can stand out. My goal [as a performer] is not to be better than another person but to be better than what I was yesterday.” Geronimo said he has learned so much from his family. His father is a professional soccer player (LA Galaxy, New York Red Bulls and Columbia national team). “In my talk, I will use a PowerPoint presentation to show how I have developed from a child to the person I am

today,” he said. “I’ll discuss the outside influences that have shaped me. My family is amazingly supportive. Even though

my father is a professional athlete, so different from my career choice, he tells me he learns things from me, watching me perform. They are so supportive.” Most performers acknowledge that they are nervous either while auditioning or even in performance. Geronimo said he trembled in ninth grade in initial Idyllwild Arts auditions but now views auditions differently. “I go in saying to myself, ‘We’re here to play.’ As much as they’re auditioning me, I’m auditioning them. At the end of a day, everything happens for a reason. If they want to work with me, to help transform a diamond in the rough, then maybe that’s where I should be — working with people who will be supportive and fun to work with.” Geronimo is focused on today. Although post-IAA professional preparation is a possibility, it is his time at IAA that consumes his attention. “I know the training I take here will prepare me.” Geronimo will talk about his life and training at the academy and his dreams of becoming a professional performer. “Since I was a young boy, I knew I wanted to be a performer on stage.” His talk is at 6 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 30, at the Town Gallery on North Circle Drive. The talk is free to the public. Marshall Smith can be reached at marshall@towncrier.com.

Opal and the Secret Code By Janie Lancaster Author and Illustrator This is the fourth in a nine-part weekly series. The series is unique because it tells the true story of a deaf girl, Opal Mehigan Fleming, and how in the 1930s, learning American Sign Language opened up a whole new world for her. It shows how her new language made her feel equal to others and not left out in a dark, lonely world. Opal’s resilient spirit enabled her to overcome so much in her lifetime. She became a well-educated, dignified person loved by so many, including the author of Opal’s story. For 20 years, she was a teacher’s aide at the North Carolina School for the Deaf. She died in 2003. This year (2017) is the 200th Bicentennial of the first American School for the Deaf. Janie, who lives in Hemet, is available to visit classrooms to help motivate kids to

write their own stories and build believable characters. Note: Last week was Chapter Three, though it read Chapter Two in error. Chapter Four: The Secret Code One day I got to wondering about the people who lived in this big stone house and their strange way of communicating with each other. They were nothing like my family at home. My family moved their mouth and tongues in peculiar ways and understood what the other wanted. In this big stone house, they seemed to have a secret code. They all communicated with each other by making strange faces and odd hand shapes. Then they moved their arms up and down, from side to side and round and round. I was determined to figure out their secret code! I watched them from behind trees. I watched them from behind doors. One time I saw an older girl frown and wipe a tear from a little girl’s eyes. Then the older girl spread out her fingers with both hands. She placed them in front of her own sad face and moved them slowly downward. Then I saw the woman with the spirals of red sticky-out hair smile and hit her chest upward several times with the palms of her hands. And I saw the man with the bushy mustache shape his hand like a claw and wiggle his fingers in front of his crinkled-up face. It seemed that everyone but me knew what they were saying to each other through what seemed to be some sort of strange code. I was going to figure out what that secret code was. I wasn’t going to give up either. No way!

Late at night, when all the girls were fast asleep, I would practice the odd hand shapes, practice crinkling up my nose, wiggling my eyebrows and moving my arms about. Even though I didn’t know what it all meant, I was sure I’d figure out this strange secret code. Then one night, I practiced something I saw the teacher do. She pointed to a picture of a family on the blackboard. Then she spread out her fingers on her right hand, put her thumb on her forehead and pointed to the picture of the pa. She then moved her thumb on her chin and pointed to the picture of the ma. So, I stretched out my right hand and put my thumb on my forehead and thought about my pa. Then I put my thumb on my chin and thought about my ma. My eyes opened wide. I looked around at the rows of beds with sleeping girls and smiled. I had cracked the secret code! Soon I would surprise them all. Visit her website at: www.JanieLancaster.com. Workbook Copyright by Janie Lancaster.

PHOTO COURTESY IDYLLWILD LIBRARY Idyllwild School sixthgrade teacher Lindsay Crater chose Veronica Flores (left) and Lily Easley as students of the week because they are hardworking, thoughtful and generous students. “Both girls are positive sixth graders who help others and inspire their peers,” said Crater. “Lily always has an enthusiastic spirit and Veronica is uplifting to everyone she meets!”

Iris Davison of Idyllwild choreographed a dance to her husband Peter Davison’s music. The dance is titled “Towards Forever.” They made a dance video on Inspiration Point, videography by Rebecca Frazier and John Drake. It also features Heather Netz, violin teacher at Idyllwild Arts Academy, playing the solo. The video was just selected for the Screen Dance Miami Festival from Jan. 18 to 20. There will be repeated screenings over the weekend. View the video at www.youtube.com/channel/UCP 2nriXlzMTsWw3SQR1GG-A.

CREATURE CORNER By Janice Murasko Last week in “Days of Our Nine Lives,” ARF cats and dogs celebrated Ranger going to a forever home. Little Girl: OK, my friends, time for our weekly meeting. Zorro: I think we’re all here, aren’t we? (Looking around) Hmmm, where’s George? Little Girl: That’s part of my news for today. George found his forever family! Anabel: Oh my goodness, that’s great. But I’ll miss him. Little Girl: And there is more! Sassy found her new Pepper home, and it comes with a new brother! On top of that, a sweet little poodle named Batman Susie came to ARF and was adopted in one day. Trenton: You know, I’m watching everyone here to see what is done to win the hearts of humans. I’m trying so hard, but I’m still here. Indigo: Me, too! Augusta: I’m afraid that’s because we are Indigo shy with new humans. They get the wrong idea. Zorro: Same with us, Augusta. Batman and I play a little hard to get, but when the human visits for more than 5 minutes, we become very friendly. Anabel: Speak for yourself, Zorro! I am Zorro friendly right off the bat. Batman: Yea, but some of us just want to observe first. Anabel: You four kittens are just so adorable; I cannot believe you’re still here. Trenton: We would love a family who wants to play with us. Little Girl Little Girl: While several of us would be perfect — and I mean perfect — matches for a senior or senior couple. Pepper: I hope seniors understand how beneficial a pet can be for their physical and emotional health. A study said, “Over the long term, pet and human interactions can lower cholesterol levels, fight depression and may even help protect against heart disease and stroke.” Little Girl: How do you know that? Pepper: An ARF caretaker told me, of course! Be sure to keep up with the animal antics of “Days of Our Nine Lives” each week. And please stop in to say hello to the entire adoptable cast at the ARF House, 26890 Hwy. 243 on Saturdays 10-4 and Sundays 10-2, or by appointment M-F by calling 951-659-1122. Creature Corner is sponsored by Tycho and Lucia who salute all the mountain dogs. Long may you woof!
