The closest-available unit is now officially the policy of Riverside County, as far as medical service. At an April 3 meeting, which included officials from the county’s Emergency Management and Fire departments, Idyllwild Fire Protection District and American Medical Response, the participants unanimously agreed to the merits of the policy. Its use will begin Tuesday, May 1, according to both Bruce Barton, EMD director, and IFPD Chief Patrick Reitz. “AMR and IFD [Idyllwild Fire Department] will partner to ensure the success of the policy,” Barton said. And the meeting where agreement was reached does not end the collaboration, he added. The agencies will continue to meet to review progress and strive for improvements. When the county’s Emergency Control Center (dispatch) in Perris receives a call for an emergency medical response, the notice will immediately go to AMR, whose computers have a direct connection with its ambulances to identify their location. Barton described this process as computer-aided dispatch. Between now and May 1, the critical step in the success of the new process requires installing automatic vehicle locaters — global positioning systems — in the Idyllwild ambulances. AMR is giving these devices to IFD. After their installation, the IFPD ambulances will appear on the AMR dispatch screen along with other AMR ambulances, such as the one stationed in Pine Cove. If that unit is unavailable, the AMR system will automatically check the location of its backups and the IFPD ambulances. The closest-available unit will then be dispatched to the incident, both Barton and Reitz confirmed. “If it is Idyllwild, so be it,” Barton said. EMD will broker the policy and Reitz confirmed EMD would enforce it. The opportunity to employ this policy was available with technology and studies. “It is all about employment of standards throughout the county,” according to Barton. Reitz is happy with the concept, which he has advocated for some time, and acknowledged that it would not strain IFPD, considering its primary mission is service to the district’s residents, and this new technology allows it to respond outside the district. He expects the potential number of extra calls each month to be small and easily within the district’s capability. “It won’t be a significant increase. A lot of time we’re already running calls,” he said. Currently, each shift of three firefighters (captain, engineer and firefighter) is augmented with at least one reserve. So, four first responders are available for two ambulances and added staff can be called back to the station when necessary to staff the two other ambulances, Reitz said, describing the plan. When asked if IFPD planned to station an ambulance nearer Mountain Center, Reitz was adamant, “We don’t preposition our units. We’re either running calls or there for training.” For example, he said, in January when the U.S. Forest Service began the Thomas Mountain burns, they requested an ambulance be nearby. “This is for the benefit of the patients,” Reitz emphasized. “All of us are in the business of patient care. And, of course, there can be multiple ambulances, if there are multiple victims.” JP Crumrine can be reached at jp@towncrier.com.

Wet March brings April grasses and June fire threats By JP Crumrine News Editor It’s spring, despite May flowers and Tennyson’s views of young men’s thoughts, most of the Hill residents are more likely to be concerned about fire season and prevention. As temperatures warm and abatement inspections begin, fire season becomes a more frequent worry despite the admonition from local fire officials that fire season is year-round in Southern California. But neither the weather nor the work assignments for fire analytics changes that quickly. Last week, several agencies issued their “predictions” or forecasts for fire threats and dangers from April into summer and early fall. The National Interagency Fire Cen-

Water managers discuss policies — similarities and differences By JP Crumrine News Editor The Idyllwild Association of Realtors has organized a session of educational sessions for its members and affiliates. On March 19, Jack Hoagland, Jerry Holldber and Victor Jimenez, the general managers of the three local water districts, spoke about their districts and answered numerous local water issues questions. The panel of general managers began the session with a brief description of his district and its history. Holldber was first. Pine Cove Water District was formed in 1956. It is a county water system. The district encompasses about 6.4 square miles and has no sewer service. All developed lots must have a septic system, Holldber said. Idyllwild Water District, formed in 1955, also is a county water system under the California water laws, Hoagland said. IWD does provide sewer service, which is primarily along Strawberry Creek, he added. Fern Valley Water District was a private entity in the 1930s and became a state water district in 1958. One important difference between county systems, such as IWD and PCWD, and a state water district, FVWD, is who are the eligible voters for directors and bonds. Directors of county water systems are elected by full-time residents registered to vote in the water

district. Eligible voters for a state water system are property owners within the water district. They get one vote for each dollar of assessed value for their land. When asked why there are three water districts on the Hill, Hoagland referred to the history of the area. “A hundred years ago, these communities were separated by many miles and grew up separately.” And in the years before the 1950s, all three were originally created as private water companies, Holldber pointed out. The realtors asked many questions, including what are the local water sources, what are the chances of running out of water, how does a property owner get a water meter, its cost and basic water rates. To obtain a water meter in Idyllwild, Hoagland said one must submit a request for a water service availability letter. Meter prices depend upon the size, but installation costs will be affected by proximity to the water main line nearest the property. Jimenez said the FVWD meter policy is similar to IWD’s. PCWD does not require a “will serve” letter, Holldber said. “When you pay, we’ll go set the meter,” he stated. The districts’ fixed and usage rates were discussed, too. It varies. PCWD and FVWD bill bimonthly and IWD bills monthly. All three have a fixed rate of about $30

monthly and have tiers of consumption where the per-unit cost increases. IWD and PCWD also have a standby fee for undeveloped property. It is $30 per acre annually. In principle, this helps with the installation and maintenance of district infrastructure, which the lot owner will use, once a meter is installed. FVWD does not assess any standby fee, Jimenez confirmed. When asked about the possibility of drilling a private well, Hoagland explained that this was between the property owner and the county ordinances. The district has no well restrictions. In PCWD, there are some minor restrictions, Holldber noted. The districts get their water mostly from ground wells, but Strawberry Creek serves IWD and FVWD. PCWD does not have rights to any surface water and relies on wells. IWD and FVWD have wells and also divert from Strawberry Creek. FVWD also diverts some water from Tahquitz Creek, a tributary to Strawberry Creek. Also, all three managers felt that their districts had more than sufficient availability of water this year and for the near future. “We found over the last five years we were able to meet our customers’ demands,” Hoagland said. “The previous board was a little overly cautious. But customers do save water when we ask.”

Water district general managers Jack Hoagland (Idyllwild), Victor Jimenez (Fern Valley) and Jerry Holldber (Pine Cove) spoke to local realtors and affiliates during the first of a series of educational presentations that will award attendees with a Mountain Specialist Certificate. This first class took place at the Idyllwild Association of Realtors’ office on March 12.  PHOTO COURTESY IDYLLWILD ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS

As an example, IWD’s largest customer, Idyllwild Arts, has been using significantly less water in the past year. When the district asked the school if there was a problem, Hoagland said IA replied that a major conservation program to reduce water needs had been implemented. “They’re saving money but, unfortunately, it’s not being sent to us,” he lamented. “We might go to Stage 2 this spring, but we have plenty of water. This would heighten our customers’ awareness [of water usage],” Holldber added. Another question-

er asked about responsibility for water leaks from the main to the meter and from the meter to the house. Essentially the water meter separates the district’s responsibility from the homeowner’s. From the meter to the house or property is the responsibility of the owner, all managers agreed. Before leaving, Holldber stressed, “Always shut your water off when you leave your house for vacation. If you leave your house unattended, shut the water and service off.” While winter’s freezing weather is a common cause of broken pipes, leaks can occur at any

time. If no one is around to notice it, the water usage is the owner’s responsibility. Neither FVWD nor PCWD have policies to forgive large water bills. IWD will consider an adjustment, under special circumstances, once every four years, according to Hoagland. All the districts support citizen efforts to collect rainwater as a form of conservation. FVWD and PCWD have rebate programs for selected water-conservation efforts, such as low-flow toilets. JP Crumrine can be reached at jp@towncrier. com.

Idyllwild realtors learning about unique issues on the Hill By JP Crumrine News Editor

The National Weather Service’s forecast for summer precipitation is equal chances of below- and above-average precipitation from June through August. MAP COURTESY NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE

Fire threats Continued from A1 March rains will produce an abundant grass crop, which may dampen fire potential in April. But, “by June, once grasses cure, large fire potential will climb to above normal once again.” NIFC also mentioned that some weather models indicate that a monsoon season may appear in late summer this year. Cal Fire’s Southern Op-

eration’s Predictive Services unit foresees “… large fire potential climb[ing] to above normal from south to north, starting in May.” They also think the drought conditions will strengthen and expand so that “many areas of Southern California [will be] in a D3 (or worse) state.” This forecast also acknowledges that the possible monsoon season in late summer may temporarily mitigate the drought effects.

The Idyllwild Association of Realtors is offering an important opportunity to its new and long-time members and affiliates. It began in March and continues through July. On the third Monday of the month, IAOR is sponsoring a series of training or educational presentations. The six sessions will offer “knowledge about the community and the unique aspects of mountain living,” wrote Karen Doshier, an IAOR director. The idea has been discussed for several years and now Doshier has organized the program. For those who attend all six sessions, or watch a video of them, they will earn a Mountain Specialist certificate. While the certificate might go on an office or den wall, the possessors of this certificate and its knowledge can add it to their business cards for

prospective clients to know. Both the state and national realtor associations have approved the program and its content, Doshier said. And it was incorporated into IAOR’s 2015-18 Strategic Plan. “We’re so unique here; it’s so different than selling real estate in the lower areas,” Dosher said. For example, Lee Arnson, the local surveyor, will discuss a multitude of surveying issues, such as lotline adjustments, easement creation and abandonment, parcel mergers and more. “When I sold in Hemet, I never thought about a survey,” she explained. “But it’s a common issue here. What if the neighbor built across the property line?” As a former teacher and principal, Doshier is well acquainted with planning, organizing and leading this educational effort. The first session was to be about the history of the three Hill commu-

nities — Idyllwild, Fern Valley and Pine Cove. Unfortunately, that discussion was postponed due to snow and will occur in July. The actual first presentation was a panel discussion of water issues. The panelists were Jack Hoagland, Jerry Holldber and Victor Jimenez, general managers of the three local water districts. The IAOR conference room was filled and plenty of questions were asked of the managers. (See accompanying story.) Other future topics include issues relating to septic systems and percolation tests. Doshier has gotten several county health officials to come and talk about this subject. She also plans to have representatives of the county planning, and the building and safety offices come and discuss the permitting process, zoning and the application of other county codes to Hill properties.

cators Week. The resolution honors all of the emergency dispatchers who answer 911 calls and serve the people of California 24 hours a day, seven days a week, each day of the year. “These men and women are truly unsung heroes,” said Stone. “Not only do they direct police and fire personnel during emergencies, they often stay on the line during times of danger and crisis offering callers comfort, direction and hope.” In the U.S., an estimated 240 million 911 calls are made each year. Senate Resolution 99 encourages all Californians to join the Senate in celebrating and thanking those public-safety telecommunicators who dedicate their lives to serving the public.

Body found near Highway 74 at mixing site By JP Crumrine News Editor A body was found near the South Fork Trail at the mixing station on Highway 74 about 1 mile west of Mountain Center. The victim, an adult male, appeared to be a drifter or homeless person, according to Riverside County Sheriff’s Sgt. Robert Duckett. No identification was found with or near the body. The cause of death was not apparent because severe decomposition had already occurred. No evidence of foul play was seen on the body nor found near it. Until an autopsy is completed, the actual cause of death remains unknown and is being treated as an unattended death. The body was found Sunday, April 8, and removed and taken to the Coroner’s Office Monday. The Sheriff’s Department kept the scene guarded overnight to allow a better investigation during the daytime, Duckett added. JP Crumrine can be reached at jp@towncrier.com.

County sets May 5 as ‘get rid of old tires day’ By JP Crumrine News Editor The Riverside County Department of Waste Resources has scheduled a tire event in Idyllwild from 8 a.m. to noon Saturday, May 5. Residents may bring old and unwanted tires — only tires — to the county yard at 25780 Johnson Road that day. This is on the right just beyond the Idyllwild Fire Station. DWR will have two bins for residents to deposit the unwanted tires. DWR stressed that only tires under 4 feet will be accepted. Tractor tires and tires greater than 200 pounds will not be accepted. DWR staff will be on site to assist the public and answer any questions. A Household Hazardous Waste day will be available from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, April 14, at the same location. On that day, the yard will accept paint, automotive, lawn and garden, health care, and household products, electronics, and universal waste (such as batteries and fluorescent bulbs). Do not bring any tires until the May event. Business hazardous waste is not accepted. JP Crumrine can be reached at jp@towncrier.com.

George Rowell fills vacant Fern Valley Water seat By JP Crumrine News Editor Editor’s note: At its Jan. 19 meeting, the Fern Valley Water District Board of Directors selected George Rowell as the fifth director. He replaces Charles Wix, who resigned in 2017. Since Rowell did not campaign for the position, the Town Crier interviewed him so the community would have some knowledge of the new water director. He will have to stand for election in two years for the remainder of the term. Rowell, a retired private investigator, is a second-generation Californian who grew up in Long Beach. He and his wife moved to Idyllwild almost five years ago from Orange County. But they have been parttime residents for years before the move. They have two grown children and three grandchildren. Rowell, as a former private investigator, is curious and asks questions. Having known former Fern Valley General Manager Steve Erler for years, he knows something about the water district. When the vacancy was announced in December, he was one of three applicants. All were impressive, but his future colleagues were attracted to Rowell’s community involvement and interest in learning about the district. When asked about his priorities for FVWD, he did not address specific water projects. His interest, he said, is in the overall water situation on the mountain. As a homeowner, he easily recognizes water’s value to the residents, as well as its need if fire were to occur. He also expects that his experience running a small business for 30 years may help the district’s management. “What I’ve seen so far, it’s running very well and I’m impressed by the people,” he added.

Obituary Howard Calvin Ashby 1922-2018 Howard Calvin Ashby, long-time member of the Idyllwild community, died Monday, April 2, one day after his 96th birthday, in Boise, Idaho, where he and his wife, Ann, had moved to be near their youngest son, Hansel, and his family. Cal was a best friend to animals, and to those who loved and knew him for the many years they lived in Idyllwild, and then in Garner Valley. Born in Missouri in 1922, Cal graduated from Michigan State’s School of Veterinary Medicine in 1944. Cal dedicated his life to the care of animals by establishing veterinary clinics in Lee’s Summit, Missouri, and Grenada, West Indies, before ending up in Idyllwild in 1975. For 29 years, Cal and his family were beloved and valued by the community of Idyllwild and its surrounding areas, not only for the superb care given to animals at the clinic, but also for their many contributions to the overall good through the Rotary Club and other venues. When Cal retired in 1984, more than 250 locals joined in a celebration of love for him at the Community Center. The speeches, songs and tributes expressing appreciation of who he was as a man and a professional brought Cal to tears. He was a sweet and gentle man, and he made the world a better place for everybody. Cal and Ann moved to Montana in 2004 to be closer to their youngest grandchildren, but they were always held dear by their multitude of friends in Idyllwild. Cal is survived by his wife, Ann; sons Timothy, Christofer, Perry and Hansel; and daughter Marsy. Memorial celebrations will be held in Missouri and Grenada. In lieu of flowers to the family, please consider making a donation to the Humane Society, to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, or any spay and neuter clinics. Cal was passionate about reducing the number of unwanted animals who could end up as strays leading miserable and short lives. water districts,” he replied, “I haven’t looked at it yet to give a good answer. In Orange County, there are a lot of small districts; but the smallest is way bigger than one of ours.” He was appointed to the FVWD board after the recent rate changes, so he did not have a specific pro or con response, although his impression was the district has been below others for a number of years. He added, “I’ll see my water bill and hear other people talk.” Regarding capital projects, Rowell said, “I’m on the fence about replacing the mainline right now. But upgrading the meters is no problem. That will probably help determine where the water losses are.” And he restated his opposition, expressed at the March meeting, to expanding the field staff. “I’m coming at it from a business aspect,” he said. After two months on the board, Rowell said, “I’m very pleased. I’m still in the infancy of learning, but I enjoy the board meeting. Everybody is very bright. I’m very impressed with how well run the district is.” JP Crumrine can be reached at jp@towncrier.com.

Page A4 - Idyllwild Town Crier, April 12, 2018 New policy on first responses improves emergency medical service on the Mountain Plateau

OUTLOUD I wrote this piece 10 years ago this week and it evokes wonderful memories of the desert stories of these authors and my experiences there: Edward Abbey and Edna Price both possessed a deep appreciation for the desert. These two authors visualized and described deserts as natural paradises. To me, the word desert epitomized a place devoid of any real meaningful life. Only anti-social cacti, slimy, spiteful snakes and other pitiful life forms inhabited that hostile landscape. The only thing I liked about the desert wasn’t the bare rock, sand dunes and snarled twigs of former life barely clinging to barren surfaces, it was the other “desert” — Trader Joe’s, Target, Marshall’s, CostPlus and other such perfectly formed meccas of happiness with splendid weather conditions and no blowing sand. But deep inside of me, after recently reading Abbey and years after reading Price, a grain of desert sand had lodged in my psyche, and a desire to visit the Anza-Borrego State Park took hold. A friend felt the same urge, so we took off on an excursion before dawn several weeks ago to hike and snap photos of the wildflowers. My concept of a dead, moonscaped land, unattractive to any but the lowliest beings on Earth, no longer exists. The desert in spring emanates more life than you can imagine. We hiked the Palm Oasis Trail, nearly 4 miles roundtrip, in 92-degree weather. The abundant, intense hues of bright-yellow desert dandelions and sunflowers lured delicate butterflies and splendid bees. Bright orange flowers atop ocotillo posed for our cameras against a sapphire sky, and rusty, bluish variegated mountains. Lizards and shimmery skinks romped and exercised their limbs among rocks imbedded with mica that glistened like tinsel in the desert sun. Kelly-green deer grass and wild blue Canterbury bells bordered a creek carpeted with tiny white fallen flowers leading up to the cool reward of a palm oasis. Life was everywhere. We just couldn’t get enough of it. Now I find myself thinking about my next adventure to paradise. For my 60th birthday this month, Jack and I plan a mini-vacation to the desert to stay at a vintage RV park, complete with pool, community rec room in a vintage trailer and shuffle board. How appropo, particularly since we will be towing along our 1962 travel trailer — a mere 12 feet long. Though we wish time allowed us to visit the true desert I wrote about as I turned 50 with that friend who traveled with me to Anza-Borrego (yes, you, Chris), we hope to relax and enjoy the little trailer on it’s first real trip with us since electric, water and gas issues were repaired. We took it on a dry run to Lake Hemet last autumn, before the repairs. Though unable to cook inside and store food in the fridge, the little habitat is plenty big for just the two of us — and a grandchild or two — and offers a cozy sleeping arrangement without even having to remove the table. (It sleeps three adults, actually.) No, it is not equipped with A/C and that’s my one concern with going to the desert in April. But, hey, if Bill and Edna Price, and Edward Abbey could rough it, so can we. Becky Clark, Editor

Editor: A recent article in the Town Crier discussed mutual aid between first responders on medical calls in the Idyllwild area but the author, unfortunately, did not have the benefit of the most current information about the issue. Riverside County continually works to improve emergency medical response countywide and recently developed an updated operational policy for responding with the closest ambulance on the Mountain Plateau. This agreement emerged from collaboration among the county Emergency Management Department and Fire Department, the Idyllwild Fire Protection District and American Medical Response. On April 3, the agencies unanimously agreed to implement a new policy that takes effect May 1. The agreement optimizes service by using automated vehicle location tracking systems. Under the new policy, AMR will partner with IFPD to equip its ambulances with VLT that AMR has had on its ambulances since the county master ambulance contract was implemented in July 2015. This critical enhancement enables the closest ambulance to respond to an incident, allowing more efficient ambulance use while maintaining accountability through data collection. Combined with IFPD’s recent transition to the Image Trend Electronic Patient Care Record system, the vehicle trackers will allow for fully integrated data and patient-care reporting that will be used to validate effective 911 responses and provide optimal patient care. The new policy will replace the previous letter of understanding among the county, IFPD and AMR.

Crosswalk in Idyllwild

Editor: My wife and I are campground hosts at Mt. San Jacinto State Park Campground. This is our fourth year here during the months of March and April. First of all, we enjoy reading the Town Crier and the great town of Idyllwild. One of the reasons we come back every year is that we enjoy the people we meet, especially the Pacific Crest Trail hikers and the regular campers, as well. We constantly get asked why there is not at least a crosswalk sign at the corner of Maranatha Drive, Pine Crest Avenue and Highway 243 by the campers and the PCTers. This is a very busy corner. There is a stop sign southbound on Highway 243. There is no indication that this is a major place to cross the street for pedestrians walking south on Highway 243 and no one wants to continue walking north on 243 because the Forest Service wall allows no room to safely walk that direction. As far as I know, there is no need for a stop sign at this intersection. All that would have to be done is errect a crosswalk sign, and possible some added markings on the street.

shot in Memphis. No one was around, so I decided to get things going by contacting community leaders in Baton Rouge from both the black and political contingents to get comments. When City Editor Ed Price and the crew returned, I knew they would pick up the story from there. Surprisingly, Price commended me on my initiative and urged me to keep going. I had an advantage over most of the staff, having taken on the role of reporter for the busy Mississippi River port, giving me access to many business and union leaders in the black community. Every call began with a shocked response, since news of the assassination hadn’t gotten out, yet. But after initial reactions, I got the quotes I needed. As the night bore on, I wrote the local reaction article for the morning paper. I handed my story to Price, who threw it back to me saying something to the effect of, “Don’t put the lead on the most furious interview. Lead with the most substantial source.” Twenty minutes later, I resubmitted the article, which was immediately accepted. I earned my first topof-page-1 byline in the Advocate. I waited around for the first papers to roll off the presses. Quite a thrill. I left that night for New Orleans for Air National Guard drill duty, returning to town Sunday night with classes at Louisiana State University starting at 7:30 a.m. On the way back, I stopped at a cross burning on U.S. 61. I got out, took a photo and turned toward the car just as a group of men came out of a nearby building. They challenged why I was there. Most were hostile, but one convinced them to let me leave in peace. As I drove away, I heard a shot. Next morning, I found a bullet hole in the trunk of the car directly below where I was sitting — 50 years ago last week. Barry Zander Idyllwild

Hazardous waste collection

The Riverside County Department of Waste Resources has scheduled a free household hazardous-waste collection event in Idyllwild from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, April 14, at the County Road Yard.

Limit the amount of waste transported to no more than 15 gallons, or 125 pounds maximum per vehicle. Individual containers should be no larger than five gallons nor weigh more than 50 pounds. The collection will not accept explosives, radioactive material, ammunition, asbestos, compressed-gas cylinders over 40 pounds, or infectious or medical waste other than sharps. The event is subject to cancellation during inclement weather or for other hazardous conditions as determined by the county.

Idypark dedication on May 26

At noon Saturday, May 26, residents are invited to a dedication of the new Idypark to first responders who keep us safe and veterans who protect our freedom. The American Legion Post 800 Honor Guard will raise the flag and the Idyllwild Master Chorale will lead singing of songs celebrating the flag and country. It is most fitting that we are having this dedication on Memorial Day weekend to honor those brave men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice,” said Idypark co-owner Dave Butterfield.

Remember that the objective of all of us participating in the Town Crier’s Membership model is for the paper to continue on when Becky and I retire — and I’m almost 73 now. The Town Crier must be acquired by younger publishers willing to continue a real newspaper for our Hill. For that to happen, the newspaper must be able to pay reasonable salaries to its editor and part-time employees — positions that Becky and I worked without compensation. If we cannot show that to new publishers, the Town Crier will retire with us. At the Rotary Club breakfast meeting last Aug. 30, I was asked how much money I thought we would have to bring in with the then two-week-old Membership program to meet the goal of saving the Town Crier for the future. At that time, I estimated it would take a minimum of $85,000 in Memberships per year to keep the paper going. Thanks to all of you, the Membership model is poised to accomplish that objective. With 18 weeks remaining until the one-year anniversary of the Membership model, you now have met 85 percent of the estimated minimum goal. An average of eight new Memberships each week between now and Aug. 16 will meet the estimated minimum needed. The Town Crier’s news meetings are open to the public. Please join us Wednesdays at 8:30 a.m. at the TC office at North Circle and Cedar.

Theft.gov website to file IRS Form 14039. IdentityTheft.gov website on a laptop, smartphone, and tablet.Tax-related identity theft happens when someone uses your stolen Social Security number to file a tax return and claim your refund. You might find out about it when you try to e-file — only to find that someone else already has submitted a return — or when the IRS sends you a letter saying it has identified a suspicious tax return that used your SSN. That’s when you’ll need to file an IRS Identity Theft Affidavit (IRS Form 14039), so that the IRS can begin resolving your case. Now, you can report to the IRS through IdentityTheft.gov. It’s the only place you can submit your IRS Form 14039 electronically. Here’s how it works: IdentityTheft.gov will first ask you questions to collect the information the IRS needs, then use your information to populate the Form 14039 and let you review it. Once you’re satisfied, you can submit the Form 14039 to the IRS through IdentityTheft.gov. Download a copy for your own records, too. About 30 days later, the IRS will send you a letter confirming it received the information. See Scams, page A7 put yourself or others around you at risk. • Delegate: There may be good reasons to not go direct. Seek help from someone with more authority to intervene. • Distract: Interrupting the situation without directly confronting the offender. This can be fun, even: “Hey, isn’t that your car? You’re getting a ticket.” Then spirit away the victim. Be creative. • Delay: If none of the above seems like a good idea, then check in later with the victim. See if they need help, support, or someone to talk to or assist them to get professional help, if needed. We can all be upstanders.

Fatal motorcycle traffic collision

Tense 70 years ago - 1948 The Town Crier noted evidence that the dog population was getting out of hand: “Many pets are apparently dissatisfied with their homes and prefer just to hang around the post office.”

By Holly Parsons Staff Reporter

On Wednesday, April 4, at about 5:15 p.m., Dustin Blair, a 40-year-old man from Mira Loma, was riding a copper-colored 2013 Harley Davidson motorcycle eastbound on Highway 74, just east of Ribbonwood Drive in Mountain Center. The collision occurred near the unincorporated community of Pinyon Pines. Christopher Fife, 46, of Mountain Center, was driving a white 2004 Toyota Sienna van westbound on Highway 74. As the motorcycle rider was negotiating a sweeping right-hand curve in the roadway, he lost control and crossed over the double-yellow lines, directly into the path of the westbound Toyota. The front of the Toyota collided with the motorcycle. The rider was ejected from his seat onto the roadway surface and suffered fatal injuries. Alcohol and/or drugs have not been ruled out as contributing factors in the cause of this collision. No other vehicles were involved in the collision. The incident is being investigated by CaliLake Fulmor in 1952 or 1953, the morning after trout season opened, showing part of fornia Highway Patrol Officer Mike Murawski. the estimated 1,500 persons who lined the banks, shoulder-to-shoulder.

Congress approves disaster funds for wildfires Borrowing of program funding ends By JP Crumrine News Editor The federal Omnibus 2018 funding bill also included changes to the way the funding for wildfire suppression will be made in the future. Currently, when suppression costs exceed Congress’ appropriated funding, the U.S. Forest Service and the Bureau of Land Management must “borrow” funds from other programs, such as recreation or forest management. In some years, Congress does not appropriate more funding to replace the borrowing. Consequently, the borrowed money is not repaid and the other programs suffer. Starting this fiscal year, the new bill authorizes disaster relief funding, such as for damage from floods or hurricanes, as the source for suppression funding that exceeds the 10-year-average fire-suppression costs. The solution included in the omnibus provides a new funding structure from fiscal 2020 through fiscal 2027. Beginning in 2020, $2.25 billion of new budget authority is available to both the departments of agriculture and interior. Each year through fiscal 2027, another $100 million is added to the funding level, until it reaches $2.95 billion. For the duration of the eight-year fix, fire suppression will be funded at the 2015 president’s budget request of $1 billion. If funding in the cap is used, the secretary of

Congress gives Forest Service more money than administration requested By JP Crumrine News Editor The U.S. Congress was much more sympathetic to the U.S. Forest Service’s funding needs and requests than the Trump

administration’s revised fiscal year 2017-18 budget submission. Excluding wildfire funding, Congress appropriated $3.1 billion for the agency. This was nearly $625 million more than

County continues progress toward offering electric service By JP Crumrine News Editor The Riverside County Board of Supervisors took another step forward in its path to create a Community Choice Aggregation program, in which the county could provide electricity. In 2002, the Legislature passed legislation authorizing local governments to procure or develop electrical power for themselves, or their residents and businesses. In November, the supervisors passed Ordinance 940, which set the framework for a CCA in Riverside County. An implementation plan was submitted to the California Public Utilities Commission. The CPUC certified the county’s implementation plan. In March, Southern California Edison submitted a letter raising concerns

about the county’s plan. The county responded a few weeks later. In a letter to the county, the CPUC stated that the “Rivco CCA is authorized to begin serving customer load in 2019, … subject to all Resource Adequacy and other statutory Commission requirements.” One of those requirements is a $100,000 bond, which the supervisors approved this week. However, it still intends to delay implementation until the CPUC determines the fee the county must pay SCE for reimbursement of its lost customers. County residents should not expect to hear anything about its implementation until late summer. The CPUC is expected to issue a decision then and the ultimate charge may significantly influence the success of a county electric agency.

Felled tree causes two power outages over weekend By JP Crumrine News Editor Many Idyllwild residents and visitors were surprised by two power outages this weekend. Both were caused by the same incident, felling a tree in the wrong direction. Saturday afternoon, April 7, Southern California Edison reported power was out for two hours to more than 2,300 customers in Idyllwild. Then it was out for about three hours again Sunday morning. The afternoon outage, according to Sally Jeun in the SCE media relations office, was caused when a local customer cut a tree that fell on a power line. It took SCE about two hours to restore the service to Idyllwild. Apparently, that was a temporary fix, enabling customers to could get through the evening. It did not completely repair the problem. The early Sunday morning outage was necessary

to fix and re-configure the equipment, returning it to the normal state. “It was more convenient to take it back down to restore the original configuration,” said Jude Schneider, senior advisor for corporate communications. “It was a two-part fix.” The boundary of the outage was north of May Valley, east of Idyllmont Road, north of Tahquitz View Drive and south of Forest Haven, according to Jeun. Schneider confirmed that roughly the same area was taken down during the night. If residents need help pruning or cutting a tree, they should contact SCE at 1-800-990-7788 for assistance before blacking out the town. SCE will offer assistance. The Saturday outage started about 1:35 p.m. and power was fully restored at 3:30 p.m. The Sunday outage occurred between 12:30 a.m. and 3:30 a.m.

agriculture must submit a report to Congress documenting aspects of fire season, such as decision-making and cost drivers, that led to the expenditures. “The fire funding fix, which has been sought for decades, is an important inclusion in the omnibus spending bill and I commend Congress for addressing the issue,” said Sonny Perdue, secretary of the U.S. Department of Agriculture. “Improving the way we fund wildfire suppression will help us better manage our forests. If we ensure that we have adequate resources for forest management, we can mitigate the frequency of wildfires and severity of future fire seasons.” The Forest Service’s fire suppression budget was funded at a rolling 10-year average. Because fire seasons are longer and conditions are worse, the 10-year rolling fire suppression budget average kept rising, consuming a greater percentage of the total Forest Service budget each year. Last year, wildfire suppression costs exceeded $2.5 billion, making it the most expensive year on record. At the peak of fire season, more than 28,000 personnel were dispatched to fires, along with aircraft and other emergency response resources, according to the Forest Service’s press release after the appropriations bill passed. “Common sense has finally prevailed when it comes to how the Forest Service pays to fight record-breaking forest fires that devastate homes and communities in Oregon and the West,” Sen. Ron Wyden (D-OR) said in a press release. “… This long-overdue, bipartisan solution to the madness of ‘fire borrowing’ will at last treat these infernos like the natural disasters they are, with

the benefit that millions of dollars will now be liberated each year for essential wildfire prevention.” “This puts an end to fire borrowing and is a start to giving the Forest Service the predictable resources they need to reduce hazardous fuels,” said Sen. Maria Cantwell (D-WA). Not all congressmen felt the funding change was satisfactory, Rep. Rob Bishop (R-UT), chair of the House Natural Resources Committee, said in a press release when the bill was released, “Democrats, especially in the Senate, stood in the way of forest reform that could have prevented future catastrophic wildfires. When we have another record fire season, we’ll look back at this bill as a missed opportunity. The fire-funding fix slightly improves the Forest Service’s flexibility, but the bill does very little to restore the health of our nation’s forests.” However, environmentalists, including the Nature Conservancy, were delighted. In a press release, Lynn Scarlett, co-chief external affairs officer for the Nature Conservancy said, “The comprehensive solution to the wildfire funding problem included in the bill is a tremendous victory. It would mean we will no longer have to pay to fight increasing wildfire disasters out of the very same budgets that could have instead gone toward making forests healthier and less prone to these extreme wildfires in the first place. This is a huge improvement that will mean millions more in funding every year for the important restoration and conservation work of the Forest Service and Department of the Interior on national forests and other public lands.” JP Crumrine can be reached at jp@towncrier.com.

the prior-year funding and about $830 million more than President Donald Trump requested for the USFS’s current-year budget. Wildfire funding also was increased about $500 million. While funds for forest management were about $100 million more than the request, $40 million was for restoring funding for the forest-landscape restoration fund, which

Congress provided $430 million for hazardous-fuels projects, another $75 million more than the request. The committees also directed the Forest Service to establish priorities for these proj-

The Appropriation Committees added nearly $350 million to the administration’s $100 million request. Most of the added funding is for roads and facilities. This includes upgrades

Overall, fire suppression and preparation funding was increased. Fire suppression was funded at 100 percent of its 10-year average level. JP Crumrine can be reached at jp@towncrier. com.

‘Synchronicity’ art exhibit opens with reception Middle Ridge Winery Tasting Gallery, is once again introducing a new art exhibit in its 4,000-square-foot gallery. Appropriately called “The Idyllwild Collection: Synchronicity,” the exhibit features a variety of mediums and styles, all of which are designed to delight the viewer by capturing a moment in time where purpose meets imagination. The exhibit includes more than 200 works of art created by 34 artists, nine of whom are being featured in the Tasting Gallery for the first time. “We are thrilled to share the work of some of Southern California’s most talented artists in our new exhibit,” said Melody Johnston who, along with her husband and winemaker Chris, opened Middle Ridge Winery Tasting Gallery to create a space where their love of wine and love of art could come together. “We invite art lovers to let the art speak to them as they catch a glimpse of the timeless place where beauty and technique meet in the mind and hands of the artist.” With exhibits that rotate every three months, new artists and works are featured regularly in the Tasting Gallery. Five artists are brand new to Idyllwild with this exhibit: abstract painter Bryan Boomershine of Palm Springs, stained glass artist Barry DeCola of Joshua Tree, abstract painter Lar Greene of Palm Desert, photographer Per Lind of Los Angeles, and mosaic artist Alison Parma of Joshua Tree.  Being featured for the first time in the Tasting Gallery are photographer Steven King of Idyllwild, and three faculty members from the Idyllwild Arts Academy — ceramics artist Daniel Donovan, abstract painter Don Reed and printmaker Linda Lucia Santana. The “Afternoon with the Artists” reception is open to the public from 2 to 5 p.m. Saturday, April 21. Visitors will have the opportunity to sip, talk and walk through the Tasting Gallery while getting to know the artists. The soft-rock guitar and R&B sounds of Jac Jacaruso and Sandii Castleberry will echo through the gallery from 2 to 6 p.m. Middle Ridge Winery invites visitors to “spend the afternoon and with us, and the day in Idyllwild.”

Idyllwild Master Chorale presents Fauré, Copeland, Mozart in Spring Concert

By Holly Parsons Staff Reporter In its 43rd season, the Idyllwild Master Chorale, led by Conductor Dwight Allen “Buzz” Holmes, continues to regale Idyllwild audiences with internationally renowned chamber orchestrations and exquisite vocal harmonies. Selections for this year’s Spring Concert tender a poignant tribute to Karen Visel, a cherished member of the chorale since 1984 who passed in 2017. Several pieces are among her favorites. The choice of “Requiem in D minor, Opus 48” by Gabriel Fauré will open the evening. Fauré eloquently interprets the illumined life as conveyed by French impressionists of the late 1800s, into an inspired musical composition “hailed as one of the most beautiful master works

ever written,” stated Holmes. American Folklore selections by Aaron Copeland will follow, featuring choral arrangements that Holmes observes, “captivate the vastness of his interludes, setting his compositions apart from contemporary composers.” Assorted examples will include “At the River,” “I Bought me a Cat” and “Long Time Ago.” Randall Thompson’s “Frostania” collection, based on the poetry of Robert Frost, inserts vivid harmonics transforming Frost’s “The Road not Taken” and “Stopping by a Wood.” “This is classic choral repertoire at its best! The combination of Robert Frost’s remarkable text enhanced by the musical mastery of Randall Thompson make this selection an absolute tribute to both poetry and music,” writes music critic J.W. Pepper.

The IMC men’s choir will the close the evening with Mozart’s final chorale composition, “Ave Verum Corpus” (Latin translation, “Hail, True Body”). The Austrian pianist Artur Schnabel once said of the work, “It is too simple for children, and too difficult for adults.” It was written to be performed on the Feast of Corpus Christi and the score contains the words sotto voce (meaning “subdued”) in Mozart’s hand. The performance is at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, April 14, in the William M. Lowman Concert Hall, on the Idyllwild Arts Academy campus. Tickets, $25 for adults and $10 for students, are available online at www.idyllwildmasterchorale.org and at the door. For more information, call IMC at 951-659-2650.

Cole Withers Band debuts ‘The Last Bookstore’ An Idyllwild original album By Holly Parsons Staff Reporter “The Last Bookstore,” a standout collection of original tunes written and sung by Cole Withers, delivers the authentic experience. Produced by Steve Desterhaft and Mike Gustin under Red Manzanita Records label, recorded at MTG Studios in Idyllwild and debuted March 6 at House of Blues in Anaheim, it already is creating buzz. The soft release is Friday, April 20, at Idyology; the hard release is June 7 at The Last Bookstore in Los Angeles. Haunting and moving are undisputed descriptors of Withers’ lyrics. His songs, such as “Wash Away,” “Eastern Standard Time” and “Rescue Me” evoke nostalgia for the grit where remorse and regret combine with all that is fine; reminding the listener that renewal, ever in the offing, might be just a heartbeat away. Three core band members form a trio with palpable synergy. Withers leads vocals and plays rhythm guitar, Desterhaft is masterful on lead guitar and vocals, and Gustin, dynamic on drums, also sings back-up harmony. The album features two guest performers, namely Idyllwild Arts’ Paul Carman on sax and Mark Cummings on bass, both world-class talents. Carman predicts, “This band is the next biggest thing to come out of Idyllwild.” Withers, born in New York City, emerged as a writer early in life. Educated in the arts, his poetry and songs are inspired by a life deeply lived. Development of his voice came later and almost by accident, if any such thing exists. Withers’ voice majestically resounds with pain and poignant phrasing creating a viscer-

al response reminiscent of Michael McDonald or the soft edge captured on Elton John’s early recordings. Red Manzanita was chosen for the record label as a metaphor. Not unlike humans whose best creations often arise from a result of deconstruction or devastation, the red manzanita literally generates seeds while burning … a species born of fire, not unlike Withers’ lyrics. Desterhaft, lead guitar and vocalist for 35 years in both rock and country genres, brings cinematic elements to unique chord phrasings and background vocals throughout the album. Gustin is a career drummer and vocalist whose natural sense of rhythm and power sets the album ablaze. Gustin is credited by Desterhaft with “being one of the most grounded producers I’d ever worked with. In the studio, Gustin immediately took me out of my comfort zone. Reluctantly, I followed his direction and the results are astounding, even to me.” Desterhaft recalls. A series of unscripted meetings in Idyllwild in early 2017 led to a collision of talent, potential and creative energy as the three began to lay down the bones of

Cole Withers and Steve Desterhaft’s debut performance of “The Last Bookstore” at The House of Blues in Anaheim on March 6. PHOTO COURTESY SHAUNA LYNN PRODUCTIONSARTIST 2

an album comprising Wither’s songs. When asked why Idyllwild, the answer was unequivocal. “There seems to be a creative energy sitting right here that can’t be ignored,” observed Desterhaft. Withers added, “It’s a profoundly creative place to live. I feel blessed to live here. Since the beginning, the community welcomed our music and has been so supportive; an experience we will never forget. And, we’re always happy when local musicians such as Paul Carman on sax and Mark Cummings on bass sit in.” The decision to name the album “The Last Bookstore” is the band’s homage to a dying institution. “Iconic bookstores, large and small from coast to coast throughout my life, are where I connected with both living and published artists, and it’s where I fell in love with literature. Independent bookstores are a

dying institution that feeds imagination and creativity, their slow demise is irreplaceable for artists. Touring the album this summer, venues will include independent bookstores wherever possible to punctuate this message,” said Withers. When the producers were asked why they wanted to produce this album, the question was perhaps answered best by Gustin, who said, “Cole’s lyrics, as powerful as they are, have a spiritual undertone having a lot to do with finding your way to personal fulfillment.

Alpenglow Lilac Garden hosts International Lilac Society By Marshall Smith and Holly Parsons, Staff Reporter Idyllwild’s premier Alpenglow Lilac Garden will showcase a spectacular array of blooming lilacs for attendees of the International Lilac Society on Saturday, April 21, at its Fern Valley location. The Idyllwild visit will follow the International Lilac Society conference and annual meeting held in Riverside Thursday and Friday, April 19 to 20. “People will travel to Idyllwild from all over the world — from Russia, France, Canada and other countries with lilac devotees,” said garden owner Gary Parton, of the society’s visit. “They’ll arrive here on Saturday, April 21, first visiting the Idyllwild Library for an introduction to the work the Garden Club has done planting more than 1,200 lilacs throughout the village business core, the work of Reva Ballreich, [his mentor] and the creation of the Alpenglow Garden which hosts 300 plants in 165 colors. They’ll also visit lilac collections at the Idyllwild Inn and St. Hugh’s Episcopal Church. Then arrive at the Alpenglow garden for a tour, lunch buffet and auction of approximately 45 rare and varied lilac

plants,” said Parton. Parton noted that people are flying in specifically to attend the auction on Saturday in order to purchase lilac varietals available only in Idyllwild … including

the stunning Idyllwild Lilac. “It’s quite an honor,” said Parton, of the visit of the International Lilac Society and its acknowledgment of Idyllwild’s place in the history of lilac propagation.

Lilacs are widely regarded as the aristocrat of the garden. The Genius Syringa arrived on this continent in canvas-wrapped root bundles with the pilgrims and arrived in Idyllwild in the hands of Ballreich, their initial local cultivator. Her botanical skills produced a selection of unique hybrid colors and a delicate blue specimen was selected by the Idyllwild Garden Club in 1999 as the official Idyllwild Lilac. “It’s conceivable,” mused Parton, “that should Idyllwild’s fondness for lilacs extend to residences and more public areas, the entire town could become a spring showcase for two months annually, enchanting residents and drawing tourists to view their colorful blooms and scents of legendary lore.” Parton’s Alpenglow garden, located at 25025 Fern Valley Road, is open to the public from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday to Sunday during the months of April and May, when lilacs should be at their peak and available for purchase. The garden is open by appointment only June through March. Parton can be reached at 951-659-9711 or garyparton@yahoo.com. Holly Parsons can be reached at holly@towncrier.com.

With the arts dominant this week, you might want to pick up any of those creative projects you’ve neglected. A workplace situation benefits from some fresh insight.

May 21 – June 21

Music helps replenish your energy levels. Stream your playlist if you must. But a live concert could prove more rewarding, especially if you go with that very special someone.

June 22 – July 22

Close friends reach out to help perk up your lagging social life. That workplace situation also eases, leaving you time to do more fun things by week’s end.

July 23 – August 22

A revelation clears up that perplexing job-related problem. Some changes will have to be made, which, no doubt, will meet with the Big Cat’s roaring approval. Good luck.

August 23 – September 22

Reaching out to someone in need is the noble thing to do. But try to restrain the temptation to add a lecture -- no matter how well-intended -- to your good deed.

September 23 – October 22

There could be another tough challenge to face before the month is over. But all that hard work is winning you lots of important recognition from your peers.

October 23 – November 21

Keeping to your work schedule could prove difficult with all those personal distractions. Best advice: Stay with it. There’ll be time later for socializing.

November 22 – December 21

Jumping hurdles this week might be vexing for most, but not for the sage Sagittarian, who recognizes that meeting a challenge can open up opportunities.

January 20 – February 18

We know the Water Bearer takes pleasure in giving to others. But why not let someone else enjoy the experience too by accepting that offer of help?

February 19 – March 20

Get trained as FAA certified Aviation Technician. Financial aid for qualified students. Job placement assistance. Call Aviation Institute of Maintenance

CREATURE CORNER By Janice Murasko Last week in “Days of Our Nine Lives,” Panther and Little Girl learned about ARF’s new dog, Shay. Little Girl: It’s time for everyone to meet Shay, ARF’s newest canine family member. Khalessi: How exciting. Look, here he is! Shay: (enters the room) Hello everyone! I’m Shay, and I’m here to find my forever home. Panther: So am I! Mr. Gray: Me, too! Little Girl: Welcome, Shay. Tell us about yourself. Shay: I was found near Garner Valley, and no one ever came looking for me. My foster can’t hold onto me for very long, so I need a home ASAP. Mr. Gray Little Girl: Uh, oh. I hope a Indigo family steps up soon. Shay: I would be such a good hiking partner, and I love to play. I think those qualities would be very desirable, espePanther cially in a mountain community. Little Girl Little Girl: Absolutely! How old are you? Shay: Between 1 and 2, I think. Little Girl: Have you met Khalessi ARF’s kittens? They were all spoken for, but one human had to give up her right to adopt, so we have at least one kitten available. Panther: When are the kittens ready to go Shay to a forever home? Little Girl: In just a few weeks. Anyone interested needs to submit an application right away. Khalessi: Kittens are adopted quickly because they are so cute. But you know, I’m really young and have many kitten-like qualities. Little Girl: You really do! And you are so friendly to everyone. Mr. Gray: I bet you’ll be adopted in no time. Little Girl: We all should be. We just need to be given a chance! 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 Carole Herman & Sandi Mathers.

Steele at the Masters By Jack Clark Pro Golf Correspondent Brendan Steele managed only a 7-over-par 76-75 — 151, Thursday and Friday, missing the cut in the Masters Tournament at Augusta National Golf Club by two strokes. The native Idyllwilder struggled with driving — he did not find one fairway on this tough, tree-lined course. Consequently, he hit no greens in regulation, either. Remarkably, he still managed to scramble for birdies or pars nearly 64 percent of the time. Brendan will sit out this week’s tournament, but next week he’ll play in the $6.2 million Valero Texas Open at AT&T Oaks in San Antonio, Texas, which tournament was his first PGA Tour win back in 2011. Jack can be reached at jack@towncrier.com.

e STUDENT OF THE WEEK e

Idyllwild School Instructional Aide Megan Gaudreault chose Anthony Bilecky, sixth grade, for this week’s student of the week. “Anthony is a kind, appreciative student, who is striving to do his best. He accepts the challenges offered to him regarding his classwork and is learning new concepts every week,” Gaudreault said.

On Monday, April 9, a young Pacific Crest Trail hiker and his two adult hiking companions paused for lunch at the Red Kettle. Lyric Hicks, 7, trail name “Bowshock,” is hiking the Pacific Coast Trail from Mexico to Canada with his mom, Kelsey Hicks (“Viking Queen”) (right), a Navy veteran, and their friend Amanda White (“Spartacus”), an Air Force veteran. Kelsey and Lyric are from Sparta, Tennessee, while Amanda is from Nashville. They plan to reach Canada near the end of August. PHOTO BY JACK CLARK
