Changes On Main Street, New Additions, Re-Inventions And More January
New Laws Will Effect Driving As we begin 2014, the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) is reminding motorists of some of the new laws that will become effective in the new year. The following laws go into effect on January 1, 2014, unless otherwise noted. • Bicycles: Passing Distance. AB 1371 (Bradford), known as the Three Feet for Safety Act, will require a motor vehicle driver passing a bicycle that is proceeding in the same direction to pass with no less than 3 feet between any part of the vehicle and any part of the bicycle or driver. When three feet is not possible, the motor vehicle must slow to a reasonable and prudent speed and only pass when no danger is present to the bicyclist. Failing to do so can incur a ﬁne, regardless of a collision or not. This law will take effect September 16, 2014. • Clean Air Vehicle Decals / “HOV Stickers.” AB 266 (Yee) and SB 286 (Blumeﬁeld), together extend sunset dates for low emission, zero emission vehicles to operate in high occupancy vehicle lanes (HOV) without meeting occupancy requirements to January 1, 2019. • Commercial Driver’s License. AB 1047 (Linder) will allow the DMV to conduct the commercial drive test for the holder of an outof-state commercial learner’s permit. The department would electronically transfer the information to the motor vehicle department in the applicant’s state of residence. AB 1047 also modiﬁes the license class deﬁnitions to require a driver operating a bus weighing more than 26,000 pounds to hold a commercial Class B license and a driver operating a bus weighing 26,000 pounds or less to hold a commercial Class C license. • DMV Vehicle Registration Pilot Program. SB 806 (Hueso) authorizes DMV to establish a pilot program to evaluate the use of alternatives to stickers, tabs, license plates, and registration cards, subject to certain requirements. It will also enable the DMV to experiment with electronic license plates, as well as facilitate DMV’s ability to explore cost-effective alternatives to California’s traditional metal license plate, plastic-coated registration stickers, and paper registration cards. • Registration and Vehicle Transfers Between Family Members. AB 443 (Lowenthal) prohibits the transfer of ownership of a vehicle to a relative or a revocable living trust until all parking or toll-violation ﬁnes and penalties reported to the DMV are paid by the transferee. • Teen Drivers. SB 194 (Galgiani) will prohibit a person who is under 18 years of age continued on page 7

Music On The Mountain
Fiddling Around To Start The New Year The Julian Branch and the Friends of the Julian Library are pleased to be hosting members of the San Diego District of the California State Old Time Fiddlers Association for the January 7, 2014 Music on the Mountain program. The program will begin at 6:00 pm. The California State Old Time Fiddlers Association (CSOTFA) is a non-proﬁt organization dedicated to the preservation and perpetuation of Old Time Fiddling. The hundreds of members throughout the state include ﬁddlers, guitar players, and other acoustic musicians. The members hold meetings, have workshops, hold contests, perform, entertain, educate, and otherwise serve the community while preserving and perpetuating the Old Time Fiddle music styles. The State organization conducts an Old Time Fiddle Contest during March each year at Oroville, California. The San Diego District - District 7 of the Organization, covers all of San
Diego County. They are working with a number of people in Julian to hold a sanctioned ﬁddle contest in Julian, which is being held on May 31, 2014. Julian was selected by the State and National organization earlier in 2013 to hold a sanctioned event. You will be amazed by the diverse music that will be performed by these people, and you will see a number of different stringed instruments being played. While a couple of people in this group say they have been ﬁddling longer than I have been alive, I believe they don’t know how old I am! They will be playing musical favorites

Some of the people performing for you on this evening are Bruce Barnes, President of the San Diego District of the CSOTFA, Willie Randel, Avery Ellisman and Chuck Murtomaki. Not only are they very capable musicians, but several serve as judges for musical competitions throughout the United States. If we are lucky, some of Julian’s own will also grace the stage with their presence. Historically, other stringed instruments such as the guitar, mandolin, banjo or upright bass to add to the harmony of the ﬁddlers. We hope you will come out and support another fabulous Music on the Mountain and learn about the upcoming sanctioned contest, being held here in Julian. A sanctioned contest means that winners not only earn prizes, but they win points, which will make them eligible to move on to the national competition. Please join us for this exciting Music on the Mountain event on Tuesday, January 7, at 6 PM. The library is located at 1850 Highway 78, Julian.

Good-bye Bob On Saturday, I said good-bye to one of the nicest kindest men I have ever known. I met Bob Dibos when I attended the ﬁrst meeting of the Julian Property Association of Julian Estates. He was the treasurer of the Property Owners Association. I was immediately impressed not only with his ability to crunch numbers, but his demeanor and patience as he explained the treasurers report to those of us who are number phobic. As I got to know Bob I became aware that he was someone you could call on day or night if you needed his help. No matter what the reason. He adored his wife, Sheila. Many evenings I would see them walking together through the Estates both speaking and looking at each other so that it was clear how much love there was between them. After 54 years of marriage it was evident to me that their love for each other created a bond that even death cannot break. During his funeral service, each of his children spoke of him in the most loving way. Two of his children are or were residents of Julian: Jennifer Smith and Elaine Lowrey. There was no doubt that they loved him very much. Bob and Sheila had six children and all said that their dad made time to spend with each of them individually so that they all felt special. When challenges faced them, Bob would give them encouragement and support with his optimistic nature. “You can do it. Have faith in yourself as I do in you.” Would that all of us had relationships with our parents and children as the Dibos family. Bob believed deeply in God. He lived the teaching of Jesus that said, (paraphrasing) “if you have fed, clothed, or comforted others; you have done so to me.” Many are better people by seeing Bob live his faith. As I listened to the eulogies for him, I was reminded of something from the play, Julius Caesar by William Shakespeare that described Bob to me. “His life was gentle, and the elements mixed so well in him that Nature might stand up and say to all the world, “This was a man” Safe journey, Bob. You have fought the good ﬁght you have ﬁnished the race, you have kept the faith. Mary Morris
Dear Editor, So what kind of elitist policy has the elementary school enacted? You must have a smart phone or computer access to know if school has been called off due to weather! There was no snow on Friday, December 20, No call, I know three kids from different households who went to school. Anything could have happened. Parents went to work unaware. So is it only the wealthy need to be informed? Wow, I thought that the elementary school was better than that. This new policy is wrong for the community. Extremely disappointed, Truly Vanderstaay
The Top 100 Baby Names Of The Year Announced (StatePoint) What’s in a name? Apparently a lot, as popular baby names from year-to-year can reveal broader cultural trends. According to BabyCenter’s recently released annual Baby Names Survey and the Top 100 Baby Names of 2013, more than half of moms say they found name inspiration in people they know. “We’re seeing a growing desire among new parents to choose names with personal meaning. Grandparents are the number one source of inspiration,” says Linda Murray, Global editor-inchief of BabyCenter, the number one pregnancy and parenting digital resource. Despite new naming inclinations, contemporary favorites still reign supreme. Jackson moved up one spot to claim the top boy's name, ending Aiden’s eight-year reign, and Sophia held tight as leader of the girls. While family inﬂuence is on the rise, pop culture still has major effects on naming trends. For example, Duck Dynasty, the most-watched nonﬁction series in cable history, is making a splash, with names like Korie, Mia, Sadie and Phil rising in the ranks. Likewise, many Americans glanced across the pond, taking a cue from the royal family -“George” and its variations were extra popular this year for boys and girls. For more information on trends, and for online tools to ﬁnd your ideal baby name, visit www.babycenter.com/top-babynames.

Celebration Of Bette Gorton Sunday At Pine Hills Lodge
Students Use STEM To Aid Communities (NAPSA)-A national Web-based program is working to increase student interest in science and technology by giving young people an opportunity to make a difference in their communities. Organized into teams, students are using STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) to develop solutions to real-world challenges. That's the word from the program's sponsor-the U.S. Army Educational Outreach Program (AEOP). The primary vehicle for ac_complishing this objective with middle-school students is the eCYBERMISSION program. The program, which is administrated by the National Science Teachers Association An online program sponsored by the (NSTA), is an online learning U.S. Army is designed to spur student competition designed to promote interest in science, technology, self-discovery and help students engineering and mathematics-also recognize real-life applications of known as STEM. STEM. Teams from all over the country propose solutions to real problems in their communities using the scientiﬁc method or the engineering design process and compete for state, regional and national awards. Each team comprises three or four students plus one adult team adviser. Students must be U.S. citizens or legal U.S. residents and must be ofﬁcially enrolled at a U.S.-based public, private or home school, or at a Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA) school abroad. Students can win on a state, regional and national level, with national winning teams receiving up to $8,000 in U.S. Savings Bonds, valued at maturity. The registration deadline for the competition is Wednesday, January 15, 2014. A Resource For Teachers The competition provides op_portunities for active learning and engagement. Some teachers use the program as an after-school or extracurricular club activity, while others integrate the competition into their lesson plans. There are also full-time professionals who volunteer in the eCYBERMISSION competition and provide students with assistance based on their area of expertise. They assist teams with their projects, review and score them, and help promote the competition with students, teachers, at the workplace and in the community. Looking Toward The Future The United States Army has long recognized that a scientiﬁcally and technologically literate citizenry is our nation's best hope for a secure, rewarding and successful future. This and its other programs for students were created with this in mind.

California State Parks Launches 150th Anniversary
More sterling volunteers from Shelter Valley near the halfway point host your included Subway lunch feast. In between, volunteers from groups such as the So Cal Coasters, Team in Training San Diego/ Hawaii Chapter, San Diego Triathlon Club, Knickerbikers, San Diego Randonneurs, La Mesa Boy Scout Troop 208, La Mesa Boy Scout Troop 319, and our own loyal Shadow Tour staff members run a total of 6 fully-stocked rest stops. This is a chance to for bicyclist to enjoy a hassle-free 100-mile ride with just two lonely stop signs, at the ideal time of year for desert cycling! The out-and-back course is fully adjustable for individuals mileage preferences and offers full rider support in both directions. Elevation rises gradually from 492 feet above sea level to over 2,600 feet at its peak before returning to the Start/Finish area in Ocotillo. There are ﬁve gradual climbs of about ½ to 4 miles in length at a maximum 7-8% grade. Winds are “generally” neutral to light headwinds in the morning (riding north) and almost always at your back on the downhill return (riding south), producing a fast return ride to the ﬁnish. The full century has 4,685 ft of climbing elevation, with about 3,100 ft of climbing in the ﬁrst 50 miles, and 1,600 ft in the 50 miles returning to Ocotillo. The course crosses Hwy 78 at the north end of the route and continues 4.4 miles north to the 50.0 mile turn-around point/rest stop. The course is rated as moderately difﬁcult. Riders are advised to recognize that weather conditions can vary widely at this time of year and can include sun, heat, cold, wind, rain, or any combination. Mother Nature can create a formidable challenge. The town of Ocotillo is a quiet, low-desert town of about 400 residents. Its citizens enjoy a peaceful life with minimal outside interference. It has no fancy restaurants or hotels and there is very little in the way of paved parking or other Gucci amenities. These are some of the tradeoffs riders accept, in return for a one-of-a-kind ride featuring 100 miles of stunning undisturbed natural scenery with virtually no trafﬁc, zero stoplights, and only two stop signs. The Stagecoach Century was created because the entire route is very much the same as it was when real stagecoaches bounced along the trail in the 1850's - a rarity in California. When comparing this century to any other, it is believed it's the best century in America.

For example, the “Nick and Tesla” series, by Pﬂugfelder and writer and journalist Steven Hockensmith, follows the adventures of two 11 year-old siblings who use science and
electronics to solve mysteries. Narratives are peppered with blueprints and instructions, so young budding inventors at home can follow along. Information about their latest book, “Nick and Tesla’s High-Voltage Danger Lab,” as well as the other books in the series can be found at www.NickandTesla.com. Take a Trip One thing that most museums have in common is signs that say “do not touch.” But at a science museum, it’s all about interactive fun. Take the kids to learn more about their favorite subjects, from animals to outer space to volcanoes. Remember, science is all around us, so you don’t necessarily need to go somewhere special to get kids thinking about it. Turn a regular day of errands into one of scientiﬁc discovery. Encourage your kids to note their observations on paper and discuss what they’ve seen and what it means at the end of the day. Just because the school bell rings, doesn’t mean the learning has to stop. Take steps to make science a bigger and better part of your kids’ day.

Jonathan Walsh, Kinnie Dye, TJ Moss comprise the always positive, always upbeat, always harmonizing trio known as the YES TEAM. Since their inception in January of 2011 they have won an Emmy Award, multiple songwriting contests, and have played venues such as: Las Vegas - The Cosmopolitan, San Diego - Belly Up Tavern, House of Blues, Anthology, Humphrey's Live, Winston's, The Grifﬁn, Lestat's, 710 Beach Club, LA - Molly Malone’s, The Mint, NYC Mercury Lounge, Austin - Lucky Lounge, & Sweet Pea Music Festival. The Yes Team spent the summer of 2013 touring back to the east coast. They hit the Outer banks of North Carolina, the ski slopes of Wintergreen Resort, and, of course, New York City! Their journeys ultimately led them back to San Diego to enjoy a warm and sunny fall and winter. They recently met with San Diego Music Award winner and producer, Jeff Berkley. Jeff and the Team have decided to come together to record a full-length album in early 2014. Be sure to keep an eye on this trio of Afﬁrminators! Their music will keep your face smiling and your heart inspired. Friday night come out for three hours of positively inspired tune with the YES TEAM in Wynola Pizza’s Red Barn, the no better place to eat and enjoy live music from six to nine.

The beginning of a new year is a great time to look back to assess what has been and then use those facts to adjust for the future. We do this in our personal lives but it is also a good idea for our businesses and investments as well. The Real Estate Realities column this time will look back at the facts emerging out of 2013 to glean from them what 2014 may hold for real estate in Julian. Is our market improving or remaining ﬂat? Is Julian following the trends being reported in the San Diego market? Are prices rising like they are in San Diego? In 2013 the Julian Sales looked like this:
What about the inventory? We’re hearing and reading that the inventory in San Diego is low. Is it low in Julian as well? To answer these questions let’s take a look at the market for 2013 compared to years past. Below is a graph showing closed sales in Julian and Santa Ysabel from 2003 through 2013.
Historic Sales Statistics for Julian and Santa Ysabel The ten year graph above shows that our average sales price is still well below what it was 10 years ago but up 11% over 2012. San Diego is currently up 11% as well. It is interesting to note that the increase is identical for the two areas. San Diego, however, has a median price in the $400,000 and ours in still under $300,000. Prices in Julian have risen for the last three years. The very low priced inventory is selling out and very few foreclosures and short sales are coming on the market. In general our market is much continued on page 9
My Thoughts by Michele Harvey
2014 And Then Some
2013 has wound down and 2014 is revving up. Lots of people make New Year’s resolutions, but I avoid them because I don’t ever want to break a promise in my whole life. Instead of resolutions; I have hopes. I hope to dust my furniture and décor more often. Right now I get to that job about once a year, when we are planning to invite family to join us for Christmas breakfast. Inviting people to our house gives me a terriﬁc incentive to actually pull down cobwebs and to ﬁnd our dining room table beneath mail, boxes not sent yet for Christmas and magazines that I hope and plan to read sometime soon. I hope to ﬁnish enough of my sewing projects to begin a new one without guilt. I have partially ﬁnished sewing projects stacked high in my work room. Some I found in my work room closet that I designed and began decades ago when I sold my home sewn pillows at the town hall craft shows. My work room tables are tall with incomplete projects. When I sew items for my store, I sew a few to see if they sell. If they are popular and they sell well, I stop other projects to build my supply and that means sewing the one type of item over and over, night after night. That’s when other possible worthy sewing projects get put aside and that’s how my work tables get tall. Since I own Julian Yesteryears, a gift shop, and since I sew many things to sell in my shop; this is the year that I hope to make and sell lots of pillows. I was pretty good at making good looking quality pillows in the past and I plan to make them again and add them to my line of unique homemade items that I sell in my shop. With my imagination at full throttle, I hope to sew other new projects that will make my piles of fabric smaller. If I do that, then I hope to make jewelry again. My jewelry making supplies now sit under much of my unﬁnished fabric projects. In 2014 I hope I can continue to volunteer for Feeding America and for the other local organizations where I gladly share my time and efforts. I hope I can continue to write columns that people like to read. I hope that my writings inspire other people to believe they can write too. Writing in a journal is a good place to begin. Through the past 9 years that Mike and I have owned and published The Julian News, I have written over 475 columns and the more I write, I’d like to think that the more conﬁdent I get. At least I can say that I get more comfortable and relaxed as I write each week. This past year I’ve been giving things away that I don’t use. I hope to continue to ﬁnd good homes for the things we don’t cherish enough. I hope that 2014 will be a year of enthusiastic gardening for me. Each winter I have high hopes of creating a visual panorama that will bring smiles to my face each day as I walk around my yard, as I work in my yard and as I discover new plant treasures that spring up because of the nourishing sunshine, rain and the time I give to caring for my yard. What has happened each year that I’ve lived on this land is that I’ve found new types of weeds whose seeds have been carried here by the nearly constant winds. The ash on our property left by the Cedar Fire has been very nourishing to all the varieties of weeds that we seem to foster. I have garden beds that we weeded just a few months ago that now have a thick crop of weeds that leave no space for any plant that I would want to grow on purpose. Add deer, gophers, rabbits and ground squirrels to the equation and I get very discouraged. I hope this year I get a lot more encouraged that discouraged when I go to work in my yard. I try not to set too many new goals for myself at one time. I think it’s better to get really good at one thing, knowing I’ve done a good job before I set out to accomplish more than I can handle. Mostly I hope that I get better at the things I like to do and that I can hold a good attitude when I have to do things I don’t want to do. Some people are good at making resolutions and sticking to them. I’m not one of those people mainly because I don’t have a good memory for things like resolutions. I could write them down, but then I’d have to remember where I kept my list, and I’m not good at that either. So instead I have hopes. The word Hope sounds encouraging to me, so maybe that’s why I think Hope is a good place for me to begin. 2014 can be a good year for many of us. 2013 felt like it was getting better than 2012, so I can say that I have my hopes up for 2014 to continue the positive climb and then some. These are my thoughts. This year I really do hope that the elves that clean houses during the time I’m asleep come to my house, often. If I know they are coming; I’ll put out some milk and cookies on the dining room table so they can eat and drink, refreshing themselves before they leave.

EAST OF PINE HILLS
by Kiki Skagen Munshi
I Resolve New Year’s is upon us and with it that scourge of humankind, New Year’s Resolutions. Around here the standard tends to be something like “eat less, exercise more and lose weight.” Implementation usually starts late (it’s a holiday, after all, and taking down the Christmas tree is hard work and…) It also ends early. Like within a week. Some time ago, bored with this futile round, we changed New Year’s Resolutions to something that seemed more useful. Like “Grow Younger Instead of Older”. Surprisingly, in spite of our best and real efforts, it didn’t work. So we then tried “Learn How to be in Two Places At Once.” That didn’t work either. This year, still bored by “eat less, exercise more and lose weight” but resolving to do same, we will also add some more do-able New Year’s Resolutions. To wit: Organize the linen closet. Finish cleaning the horse tack and various leather items that have been sitting on the dryer for the last six months. Fortunately, it’s a front loading dryer. Wash washed) the house windows. Or, more accurately, ﬁnd someone else who will wash the house windows. Pick up the pile of wood in front of the barn door. Figure out where various pieces should go which perhaps should come ﬁrst, since that’s why the pile is still there as we write. Plant another tree but REFRAIN from planting too many more. We need an additional almond and another persimmon and probably another pomegranate to be sure they cross fertilize (nurseries lie about some things such as self-fertilizing) and then Cousin Bob is bringing over three baby apricots he started…scratch that one. Go to church more regularly, not just when we like the music the choir is singing, preferably pre-1820. Things went downhill musically after that. Rehome eight to ten cats. Would anyone like a cat?

important to consult your physician if you have a medical condition that puts you at risk before starting a new outdoor regimen. The two conditions you have to worry about are frostbite and hypothermia. Frostbite is the freezing body tissue. It occurs most often on ﬁngers, toes, ears and face. Symptoms of frostbite include pain, numbness, tingling and burning of the affected site. Hypothermia occurs when the core body temperature drops to below 95 degrees F. Symptoms include chills, fatigue, drowsiness, slurred speech, intense shivering and loss of coordination. The right clothes are your ﬁrst line of defense. Dress in layers. The ﬁrst layer should be a thin synthetic fabric such as polypropylene, which helps draw sweat away from the body. The next layer should be ﬂeece or wool to help insulate the body. The top layer should be waterproof to help keep heat from escaping and keep
moisture and wind out. It’s also important to protect areas of the body prone to frostbite. A thin pair of gloves under a heavier pair will protect hands. Thermal socks will help protect the feet. It may be necessary to purchase shoes a half size larger to allow for the thickness of the socks. Don’t forget a hat or headband to protect your ears. Be sure to drink plenty of ﬂuids. Dehydration is not just a risk in the summer. When sweating and increased breathing occur, in any type of weather, dehydration is a possibility. It is particularly important to warm up properly for cold weather workouts. The body tends to stiffen more easily in cold weather. Do a short warm-up activity to help prevent injury. Remember that shoveling snow can be a good workout, but also can take a toll on people who are not used to heavy lifting. Take the continued on page 14

AB 244 (Bonilla) Requires the California Department of Veterans Affairs (CalVet) to sponsor a veterans’ special interest license plate and requires the DMV to issue the veterans’ plate if CalVet meets the current statutory requirements. This law creates, in addition to the current Honoring Veterans design of the Veteran’s Organization Plate, a new program to reissue the Veteran design that was issued prior to January 1, 2010. These plates are available to all vehicle owners. The Department of Veterans Affairs must secure 7,500 pre-paid applications in order for the department to implement this plate program. Additionally, the Department of Motor Vehicles will begin the process of implementing AB 60 (Alejo)—the new law requiring DMV to issue a driver license to an applicant who is unable to submit satisfactory proof that he/she is legally present in the Unites States —by drafting new regulations and preparing ﬁeld ofﬁces to process new applications. The new law becomes operative by January 1, 2015. The applicant will be required to meet all other driver license qualiﬁcations.

New LLC Law For 2014 The California Revised Uniform Limited Liability Company Act (“RULLCA”) goes into effect, and will automatically apply to all California LLCs. RULLCA will replace the Beverly-Killea Limited Liability Company Act, the current California LLC law. Generally, it will be unnecessary to reference Beverly-Killea when once this year ends. BeverlyKillea will, however, remain relevant when considering acts or transactions by an LLC or its members or managers before January 1, 2014. In addition, contracts dated prior to January 1, 2014 will also be governed under Beverly-Killea. Although RULLCA will not require existing LLCs to ﬁle any new documents with the Secretary of State or necessarily amend their operating agreements, it may be prudent to seek the advice of an attorney. Particularly, older operating agreements that speciﬁcally reference Beverly-Killea should be amended to instead cite RULLCA. While RULLCA is not a signiﬁcant departure from Beverly-Killea, it has some notable differences. For example, if there is a conﬂict between a provision in the operating agreement and a provision in the articles of organization, under RULLCA the operating agreement will prevail, except for third parties who reasonably rely on the articles of organization. Under Beverly-Killea, conﬂicts were resolved in favor of the LLC’s articles of organization. Another change under RULLCA is that an LLC member will be bound to the operating agreement even if that member does not sign it. These are simply a few examples of what to expect. For the most part, RULLCA represents an improvement to the default rules and was intended to align California closer to the LLC laws of other states. *** According to a Harris Interactive survey, 91 percent of women feel better after visiting a salon.

Immunizations New Documentation Requirement for Personal Belief Exemptions Starting in 2014, a new California law will modify the process for obtaining exemptions to student immunizations based on personal beliefs. Assembly Bill (AB) 2109 requires documentation that health care practitioners have informed parents about vaccines and diseases. Immunization Requirements Under the California School Immunization Law (California Health and Safety Code, Sections 120325-120375), children are required to receive certain immunizations in order to attend public and private elementary and secondary schools, child care centers, family day care homes, nursery schools, day nurseries and developmental centers. The California School Immunization Law also requires schools, child care centers, and family child care homes to enforce immunization requirements, maintain immunization records of all children enrolled, and submit reports to the local health department. The California Code of Regulations provide speciﬁc instructions for the public, health care providers, school governing authorities, and local health departments. Regulations are being updated to incorporate the new Tdap requirement. Regulations for California school immunization requirements are in Title 17 Division 1, Chapter 4, Subchapter 8.
State Parks 150th Anniversary continued from page 3
State Park’s latest conservation effort is the relocation of California’s Statewide Museum Collections Center from West Sacramento to McClellan Park, in an LEED certiﬁed building that enhances climate and humidity control to ensure greater preservation capacity for over one-million historic objects and artifacts recovered from archaeological excavations in the State Parks System. The center will ofﬁcially open to the public on January 7, 2014, and will have rotating exhibits of historic and cultural artifacts throughout the year. Tours are available by reservation only and may be arranged by e-mailing California State Parks at smcc. email@example.com. “As stewards of the people’s resources, the opening of this new facility is a tremendous step forward, as historic collections of artifacts will have a longer life, and will now be open to the public,” added Jackson. “This is one of our many legacy projects for the 150th Anniversary, in which we plan to enhance the recreation and education opportunities we offer our visitors.” As part of the 150th Anniversary, State Parks will be launching a new Park Pass Program that is targeted at serving different communities. The Park Passes will go on sale in December. For more information on the 150th Anniversary of State Parks, visit our website. California State Parks Mission To provide for the health, inspiration and education of the people of California by helping to preserve the state's extraordinary biological diversity, protecting its most valued natural and cultural resources, and creating opportunities for highquality outdoor recreation.
State Criminal Justice Systems Are Changing For Youth
(NAPSA)-There is hopeful news for young people held in the adult criminal justice system. A number of states are beginning to recognize that youths have developmental differences from adults and in many cases still possess great potential for rehabilitation. In addition, many states are now taking these factors into account at sentencing. That's the word from advocates such as Jessica Sandoval, Vice President of an organization called Campaign For Youth Justice (CFYJ). Sandoval says that over the past eight years, 23 states have enacted 40 pieces of legislation to reduce the prosecution of youths in adult criminal courts and end the placement of youths in adult jails and prisons. She points to a report from CFYJ that documents four trends in justice reform efforts across the country: • Eleven states (Colorado, Idaho, Indiana, Maine, Nevada, Hawaii, Virginia, Pennsylvania, Texas, Oregon and Ohio) have passed laws limiting states' authority to house youths in adult jails and prisons. • Four states (Connecticut, Illinois, Mississippi and Massachusetts) have expanded their juvenile court jurisdiction so that older youths who previously would have been automatically tried as adults are not prosecuted in adult criminal court. • Eleven states (Arizona, Colorado, Ohio, Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Utah, Virginia, Washington, Maryland and Nevada) have changed their transfer laws, making it more likely that youths will stay in the juvenile justice system. • Eight states (California, Colorado, Georgia, Indiana, Texas, Missouri, Ohio and Washington) have changed their mandatory minimum sentencing laws to take into account the developmental differences between youth and adults, and allow for post-sentence review for youths facing juvenile life without parole or other sentencing reform for a youth sentenced as an adult. Said Carmen Daugherty, Policy Director for CFYJ, "We now have more evidence on what does work to reduce juvenile crime, which is rehabilitation and

treatment over incarceration. Public opinion strongly favors rehabilitation and treatment over incarceration and judicial review over automatic prosecution in adult court."

The County of San Diego’s Dead and Dying Tree removal program has begun with ﬁve areas identiﬁed for tree removal over the next few months. Trees have been marked and property owners contacted. The work is and ongoing project which began after the Pines Fire of 2002, was accelerated after the Cedar Fire in 2003 and is paid for by Federal Grant funds for ﬁre suppression. With the recent deaths of so many Oak trees from the Gold Spotted Oak Borer, many additional trees have been identiﬁed over the past seasons. The wood is being hauled to the desert as in the past to fuel a small incineration/electrical generation facility.

Robin Boland Organizes Julian To Help Bring Holiday Cheer Down The Hill Robin Boland of Julian decided this year to help out the Home of Guiding Hands (www.guidinghands.org) for the holidays. This help came in the form of sponsoring a residence of ﬁve clients living in a home with 24 hour care. The residents have developmental delays and very limited incomes. The Home of Guiding Hands stated on their website, "The holiday parties that occur in each of our 31 homes are one of the most anticipated events of the year for the residents." Robin turned to her community to help sponsor the residence. Which included • Sponsoring a holiday meal for the residents and their families • Christmas gifts for the residents, all 5 of them • New Shoes for the residents; as well as "dress clothes" • Home goods for the home, such as a BBQ, Art Supplies, Gaming systems, • Portable chairs for when the residents go on outings. • Sports Balls and Games for the residents • New Sheets for the residents beds and towels. • Certiﬁcates for restaurants so the residents could enjoy an evening out • Televisions and Stereos • Movies and music One resident had a particular need for a new posterior walker. This is a very specialized walker that cost over $350.00. Robin's mom, Janet Jones wrote a letter to United Commercial Travelers
insurance about the need for the walker and Robin promptly received a check for $300.00. Another resident needed a bicycle helmet that is used for head protection (not on a bike, but in times of need). A friend stepped up and donated a brand new one. Robin simply posted on Facebook and sent out emails to her friends in Julian and down the hill and the offers to help came in. A fundraiser was also held at Wynola Pizza and Bistro. This event raised enough money to sponsor the meal for the 25 who attended the holiday celebration at the home in El Cajon. Many Julianites went out of their way to buy a meal on this foggy, foggy night. Others who could not make it, dropped off cash at the restaurant or handed Robin money in support of the efforts. Too many people in the community of Julian stepped up to be a part of this holiday happening to name them all here. Robin would like to express her extreme gratitude for the help she received to make a difference this holiday season. The support was so great, that she plans to do it again next year!
Sheet Music Q: My great-aunt recently died in Mississippi. For years she taught young students piano, and her estate includes piles of older sheet music. Should we keep or toss it? -- Johnnie, Baton Rouge, La. A: Wayland Bunnell is an expert and appraiser of sheet music, and he stated that unless you have pieces that are extraordinary, they probably would not be worth appraising. He is willing to advise you, however, and can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org. Sheet music to be aware of includes early ragtime, personality sheets from the 1920s and '30s promoting stars such as Al Jolson, Shirley Temple and Judy Garland, and pre-1925 Irving Berlin compositions. Most sheet music spotted in shops and at antique malls generally sells in the $1 to $3 range. *** Q: My dad owned a typewriter repair shop and saved about a dozen older machines that he thought were unique. I would like to ﬁnd out how much they might be worth. -- Bill, Topeka, Kansas A: Collectors divide machines into three basic periods: Pioneer, from 1874 to 1890; Classic, from 1890 to 1920; and Modern, all machines manufactured after 1920. As with most collectibles,
values depend on several factors including condition and rarity. One of the better typewriter experts is Anthony Castillo, owner of TTS Business and Products, 325 Nassau Blvd., Garden City South, NY 11530. His website and email address are www.typewritercollector. com; and email@example.com. *** Q: I have what I think is an old U.S. Army knife, stamped "US 1918." What do you think it is worth? -- Bill, Wolcott, N.Y. A: One of the better references I have found is "American Premium Guide to Knives and Razors: Identiﬁcation and Value Guide," by Jim Sargent (Krause Books). This might be a good place to begin your search. *** Q: I have the World's Fair board game that was issued in 1964. It is complete and in excellent condition. Is it worth keeping? -- Connie, Fargo, N.D. A: According to the 19th edition of "Toys & Prices" by Mark Bellomo, your game was manufactured by Milton Bradley and would retail in the $10 to $35 range depending on condition. *** Write to Larry Cox in care of King Features Weekly Service, P.O.

Cuyamaca’s Stage Station James Lassitor’s ranch in Cuyamaca’s Green Valley had a ﬂash of fame, beginning September 8, 1857. It was 2 in the morning when Superintendent Isaiah Woods of the new San Antonio and San Diego Mail Line arrived in cool white moonlight on muleback with his entourage. They had survived the desert and arrived in paradise. Nobody was awake to welcome them. He wrote for the Postmaster General that, “Once in the haystack, we slept soundly till daylight.” He was a cool character who had, as a young easterner, sailed his own ship to the south seas. Exchanging jaded mules for Lassitor’s fresh horses, they got under way by 9 o’clock and they made Old Town’s plaza by ten that night.

Maximize Your Next Refund With These Tax Deductions And Credits
(NAPSA)-According to the Internal Revenue Service, more than 101 million income tax refunds were issued in 2013, averaging $2,651 each. The average was a couple hundred dollars more for taxpayers who elected to have their refund directly deposited into a bank account. Averages in 2014 will likely be similar because of tax legislation passed in the ﬁrst couple days of 2013, according to TaxACT spokesperson Jessi Dolmage. "The now-permanent and extended tax breaks will beneﬁt taxpayers of all situations, including families, college students and homeowners," said Dolmage. The credits and deductions available on federal returns due April 15, 2014 include: • Child and Dependent Care Credit - The maximum amount of child and dependent care expenses eligible for the credit is now $3,000 if you have one child or $6,000 if you have two or more children. These increased amounts are permanent. • Child Tax Credit-The credit has been made permanent at $1,000 per child under the age of 17 at the end of 2013. This credit may be claimed in addition to the Child and Dependent Care Credit. • Tuition and fees deduction - If you, your spouse or your dependent is enrolled in a postsecondary institution, you may be able to deduct tuition expenses as an adjustment to income, even if you don't itemize deductions. You generally take this deduction if you don't qualify for an education credit or other tax break for the same expenses. • American Opportunity Tax Credit - The maximum amount of this credit for the ﬁrst four years of postsecondary education costs in a degree or certiﬁcate program is $2,500 per student. Costs may include tuition, fees and course materials (books). If you don't owe any tax, you may also be eligible to receive up to 40 percent of the credit ($1,000) as a refund. • Educator expenses deduction - Elementary and secondary educators can deduct up to $250 in related job expenses as an adjustment to income, even if not itemizing deductions. Unlike most employee expenses, educator expenses are not reduced by 2 percent of your adjusted gross income. • Deduction for mortgage insurance premiums - If you pay mortgage insurance premiums,
According to the IRS, taxpayers who have their refund directly deposited generally receive larger refunds. also known as private mortgage insurance (PMI), you may be able to deduct premiums as mortgage interest. • Alternative Minimum Tax The AMT was created to ensure wealthy taxpayers receiving large tax beneﬁts pay some tax. It will now be adjusted for inﬂation each year so fewer taxpayers are subject to the tax. The exemption amount rises in 2013 to $51,900 ($80,800 for married couples ﬁling jointly). For married individuals ﬁling separately, the exemption is $40,400. • Adoption credit - You may qualify for a credit equal to up to $12,970 of your adoption expenses including fees, court costs, attorney fees, traveling expense and other expenses directly related to and for the principal purpose of the legal adoption of an eligible child. If your employer provides adoption beneﬁts, you may also be able to exclude up to the same amount from your income. Both a credit and exclusion may be claimed for the same adoption but not for the same expense. • State and local sales tax deduction - For 2013, you can still deduct state and local sales taxes. You can take this deduction or a deduction for state income tax-but not both. As with most tax beneﬁts, you must meet certain criteria in order to claim them on your tax return, and even if you are eligible, you may not qualify for the entire amount. Online and mobile tax preparation programs make it easy to do your own taxes and conﬁdently claim all your deductions and credits. As you answer simple questions, the program completes your tax forms and checks for errors and potential opportunities. One of the top solutions, TaxACT, even helps you plan for next year with guidance for the implications of the Affordable Care Act on your taxes. Learn more about these deductions and credits at www. irs.gov, and ﬁle your federal taxes free at www.taxact.com.

healthier than it was in 2012. This is good news for those trying to sell a home. It also means that low priced inventory is being depleted which in turn means that competition for the remaining homes will drive prices higher. In January of 2010 Julian and Santa Ysabel had 78 active listings; in January of 2011 there were 98 active listings; in January of 2012 there were 90 active listings, in January of 2013 there were 53 active listings, as of Dec 29, 2013 there are 69 active listing. Our active inventory is a bit higher than it was last year at this time Let's look at the inventory a bit closer. We hear a lot on the news as to how low the inventory is in the San Diego area. Recently I ran some statistics on Poway and found that they only have 1.5 months of inventory available. Houses are moving fast there and there is competition amongst buyers for a very few number of available homes. As far as inventory is concerned Julian is very different. We currently have 9 months of inventory available! Not so good if you are comparing our market to the activity "down the hill."
Active Listings by Price in Julian and Santa Ysabel Based on the table above it is clear that there are very few affordable properties available right now in Julian and that our inventory is actually higher in the upper end properties. We have 25 months of inventory for properties priced above $400,000. It would take more than 2 years to sell out those properties at the current rate of sales. We have only 4 months of inventory for properties price less than $400,000. If you have a property that could be priced reasonably this may be a good time to sell. Call a Julian agent! As part of the process of choosing an agent make sure they are a Julian Real Estate Association member and San Diego Association of Realtors member. Find out how long they have been licensed and ask for references. Most Julian agents are more professional and more knowledgeable than agents who have no experience in the Julian market. They are there at the drop-of-a-hat to show your home and are far more knowledgeable and convincing than agents who primarily do business elsewhere.

Much has been written about this ﬁrst transcontinental mail and passenger line on “Postal Route 8076” and the “notorious” Woods. Our local newspaper advised travelers to bring a riﬂe, 100 cartridges, a Colt revolver, two pounds of balls and of course a knife. The VallecitoGreen Valley portion was on muleback, for which reason envious northerners dubbed the line, “Jackass Mail.” Woods proudly emphasized that the mail came through “in schedule time.” Old post ofﬁces used to display a famed motto: “Not snow nor rain nor dark of night shall stay these couriers from. . .”, etc, etc. This proud motto was derived from the Susa-to-Sardis pony express of the Persian Empire’s Royal Road. There are no remains to show exactly where Lassitor’s stone house and stage station were. The oldest, best source is Irving Palmer (8/1/1937), who wrote it was "very close to the present ranch house.” That two-story stone house from 1924 probably used stones from Lassitor’s house and outhouses. That ranch house was occupied for many years by our state Park Service, which still maintains exhibits and ofﬁces nearby. The ranch house burned in 2003, but the high stone walls have been stabilized for display. There are good old photos of that beautiful house with 1920’s cars, horses, and ranch hands outside. Lassitor was a handsome fellow with dark hair and a full beard. In that same year, he and his stepson built the original stone house and a huge stone
real estate. "Professional real estate practices with old fashioned integrity" describes her business model. She works primarily as a listing agent. Her interests include: community involvement, hiking, historic preservation, oil painting and gardening.
*** Life is something that happens when you can't get to sleep. — Fran Lebowitz ***
The saxophone was invented by a Belgian musician, Adolphe Sax, in 1841, it was ﬁnally patented in 1846. Today it is made in eight sizes, from the soprano to the sub-double bass.
ﬁreplace with heavy iron cook pot in the northeast corner, called a “Dutch oven.” Lassitor’s youngish lady love, widow Mulkins, and often her son John, ran the Vallecito stage station and they furnished forage with pack mules to Carrizo station. She embodied the dauntless grit of pioneer women. There was the ﬁrst decent forage and wifely greeting and food that emigrants would encounter at the desert’s edge. You can still visit our only sod building at Vallecito. Lassitor was Judge of the Plains in that same year of 1957, presiding over Cuyamaca rodeos of 1000 head of cattle. Legal records of early days were peppered with examples of his innovative spelling. “Selebreated the rights of mattrimoney” is a choice example from his own stepdaughter’s marriage certiﬁcate. We hope she didn’t read it. “Dyslexics have more fnu,” I once read on a bumper sticker. In the last year or so of the mail line, as the Civil War began, the wagon road from Viejas over the “portesuelo” (pass northeast of Viejas) through “Valle de Guatay” [Descanso] was improved. Coaches could then be used as far as Lassitor’s, changing there to muleback for the descent to Vallecito. The stage line kept a “mulada” of mules at Fort Yuma. On the many dry stretches, Woods had a spare team follow behind, feeding on bunch grass and willow. Mules preferred mesquite beans to carried grain, but that led to conﬂict with Indians. The line began with 11 coaches from New York and 200 mules. Coaches were drawn by four or six mules and went by way of Warner’s and Santa Ysabel. Some were high-class Concords. Cuyamaca remained a shortcut for pack mules and horses. It has been said that mules tamed the west, rather than horses. They are tougher, less nervous, and their cosmopolitan palate is surpassed only by goats, who will happily chomp your socks if you leave them to dry on a bush. The stations below Lassitor’s were “Julian’s” (Descanso) and “Williams” (Cockney Bill’s Viejas station), where Bill’s popular new wife served up good grub, a break from trail beans and old bacon. Details are known from court proceedings. Bill had even sacked and branded grain, and a Buffalo Pitts thresher at his Valle de las Viejas rancho. His ranch was the main source of grain in the county, transported by trains of Indian-led oxcarts. His older ranch near Julian was run by Samuel Neeson. For the desert stage stations, Green Valley served as a source of grain and hay, which was skidded down Oriﬂamme Canyon to Mason Valley. The latter was named for a man who survived Indian attacks to deliver the earlier July mail to Old Town Plaza by way of Warner’s Ranch. The welcoming committee shot anvils into the air amid “crackers” and speechifying. Bells were rung and a cannon ﬁred until they
by Albert Simonson
ran out of powder. Lassitor fared less well and was robbed of $3,000 in gold dust and murdered east of Fort Yuma, where his son found the body. He had acquired Green Valley from a hereditary Samagatuma (Jamatayune) chief who continued to live at Green Valley, known then as Cañada Verde. The early roads in Cuyamaca were cleared by an Indian work gang. Lassitor paid them in dark cloth and liquor, according to County Supervisor minutes. Pesos and dollars were scarce. His “hay road” went east from Cuyamaca Meadow, which then contained a seasonal “laguna.” Previously, army express rider Joe Swycaffer had carried Fort Yuma mail on this same Indian trail. Descendents still live around here.. That road through Green Valley was surveyed and re-aligned in 1872 by the county surveyor. The survey map shows the Lassitor/ Mulkins house between the road and Cold Stream, i.e. across the creek from the “present ranch house.” Mulkins testiﬁed that he had 20 acres fenced for a garden around the old house. The road survey ran right past the west line of his fence. About a half mile north, the meadow broadens where the ranch had a 20-acre barley ﬁeld, according to an afﬁdavit which David Lewis has. Oddly, a straight road is clearly visible in satellite views, but on the ground things are not obvious. The ﬁeld is still clear of brush. The surveyed road ran north through the old barley ﬁeld and then climbed Cold Stream Trail and Stonewall Creek to enter the Cuyamaca Meadow and turn east toward Oriﬂamme Canyon’s Indian trail. Woods had expected to meet his boss, famed stage entrepreneur James Birch, and get reimbursed for costs. Fate intervened most cruelly. Birch had already left by steamer for Panama and the east. In a hurricane on Sept 12 off Cape Hatteras, the sidewheelerwith-sails USS Central America went down. Birch was seen lighting a cigar on the pitching deck under shredded sails. He declined a lifesaver and calmly turned toward the darkness. Still a strong 29, though, he soon changed his mind and clung to storm-tossed wreckage and captured precious rainwater in an engraved silver chalice. He was a class act to the end, when he was swept into the cold darkness. The great steamship sank beneath towering waves, with it 400 passengers and ten tons of California gold, much in newly minted San Francisco coin. Many women and children were saved in that gallant time, but Wall Street crashed. Read about it in “Ship of Gold”. Much of the gold from this calamity was recently salvaged, and litigation about it ﬂowers in this less gallant time. As though no time had passed, the coins were, as they say, in mint condition.

2013 is now over and once again as I review the notable events of the past year, some seem like yesterday and some cause me to think, was that this year? As I review various web sites to see what “rates” in their opinion as notable, my comment is often Huh. As an example in March, Canada was the ﬁrst country to withdraw from the U.N. convention to combat desertiﬁcation. Not desertiﬁcation, like not having pie or ice cream but stopping areas of the world from turning to desert. Canadians have a lot of water or ice, why would they care. I’m going to jump around a little month wise, so bear with me. In April, “Big” happened in Boston as the terrorist brothers Tsarnaev exploded two bombs at the marathon killing three innocents and wounding 264. Older brother Tamerlan has gone to meet his 72 virgins courtesy of the Boston Police and younger brother Dzhokar has yet to stand trial. I’m anxiously awaiting his defense strategy and maybe he’ll meet the 72 as well, courtesy of “Twelve Angry Men” and/or women. In February North Korea set off an underground nuclear test and of course there were additional sanctions placed against them. “Ooooh you’re scaring me,” says Kim Jong Un, their people are already eating bark and grass for God’s sake. Also in February, Pope Benedict XVI resigned. Hasn’t been done in almost 600 years in the Catholic Church. I think it’s refreshing. Old guy was tired and thinking maybe “I’m getting a little old for the gig,” retires on top and makes room for the new guy. The new guy Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio become Pope Francis in March and is the ﬁrst Jesuit, ﬁrst from the Americas and ﬁrst from the southern hemisphere. As Popes go he seems like a pretty young guy so he should be around awhile. The Ravens won the Super Bowl and Alabama won the National Championship in Football. Louisville won the men’s and UConn the women’s NCAA basketball championships. Orb won the 139th running of the Kentucky Derby and Robert Fletcher won the World Croquet Championship. In January an al Qaeda afﬁliate in Algeria took over 800 hostages? Thirty-nine people were killed in the release attempt. If WWIII isn’t going on I don’t know what you’d call it. American scientists use a 3D printer to create a living, lab grown ear in February. In May, Nature Magazine reports the creation of human embryonic stem cells by cloning. I think the cloning guys are a little behind the curve on this one if they’re already making ears on a copying machine. A little toner, colored ink, hit the green button and “voila”, ears for cryin out loud. In May a garment factory in Bangladesh collapses and kills over 1,100 people. Monstrous tornadoes ravage Oklahoma City and other areas in the tornado belt. June is BIG news as Edward Snowden absconds with millions of ﬁles regarding America’s surveillance programs and releases them to news organizations. He becomes a hero in his own mind but is unwilling to test the consequences of his actions in the American courts. He ﬂees to Russia. He still has a boatload of ﬁles. The jury is still out on this one and I’m sure there’s big news coming in 2014. In July, Chelsea Elizabeth aka Bradley Manning was convicted
Jackie Esworthy was killed by a drunk driver one week after her high school graduation. What should you do to stop a friend from driving drunk? Whatever you have to. Friends don’t let friends drive drunk.
of the Espionage Act and aiding the enemy as a result of his uh her release of the largest set of classiﬁed documents ever. Manning was sentenced to 35 years at the Fort Leavenworth Disciplinary Barracks. These offenses may be punishable by death. Manning will be eligible for parole in eight years. George Zimmerman is found not guilty of the murder of Trayvon Martin. Also in July there were massive train wrecks in Canada, Paris and Spain. In August a train wreck occurred in India. In June, ﬂoods in India killed almost 6,000 people. In November one of the strongest typhoons on record hit the Philippines and Vietnam and killed over 6,100 and caused widespread devastation. It’s amazing how we become inured to tragedy in other parts of the world. In July the Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi of the Muslim Brotherhood was overthrown and jailed by the military. Egypt is big, we spend a ton of money there and the fallout from this event will happen next year. In September al Shabaab another al Qaeda afﬁliate kills 62 and wounds hundreds at a shopping mall in Nairobi, Kenya. A gunman kills 12 in the Navy Yard shooting in Washington D.C. before being killed by police. I’d really like to report the celebrity gossip of 2013 but there is so much of it that seems to happen on an hourly basis and to tell you the truth I’m not sure I even know ten percent of the famous names being bandied about. I’ll limit my reporting to the celebrities that are reportedly going broke. They are in no particular order; Nicholas Cage, Toni Braxton, Stephen Baldwin, Erin Moran (Joanie), Jose Conseco, Gary Busey, Dionne Warwick and Burt Reynolds. We lost giants this year. At the top of the list was Nelson Mandela. Ed Koch long time Mayor of New York, Margaret Thatcher, Hugo Chavez, politicians, Jean Stapleton, Esther Williams, James Gandolﬁni, Eileen Brennan, Karen Black, Julie Harris, Marcia Wallace, Paul Walker and Peter O’Toole actors, Lou Reed, Van Cliburn, Richie Havens, George Jones, Patti Page, Eydie Gormé, Ray Price, musicians, Roger Ebert critic, Jonathan Winters comedian, Emile Grifﬁth, Tommy Morrison, Ken Norton boxers, Elmore Leonard and Tom Clancy novelists, David Frost journalist, Scott Carpenter astronaut, Walt Bellamy and Bill Sharman basketball players, Mikhail Kalashnikov an inventor who’s had impact on millions on the battleﬁeld. And to close 2013, a couple of friends and I were waxing philosophic one evening and discussed what we wanted people to say as we lay in our caskets among our friends families and congregations. Jimmy said that he wanted people to say “what a devoted husband and father he was.” Clark said he would like them to say, “What a great spiritual leader, teacher and servant of God he was.” I on the other hand want them to say “Look he’s still moving.” As I close my fourth year writing this column in all its various forms, I would like to wish you all health and happiness in ’14. All my best to you and yours.

OPEN SUNDAYS! People Who Are Blind Equip The Military
® Dear EarthTalk: What are “dark factories” and are they good for the environment? -- Mitchell Pearson, Erie, PA So-called dark factories— otherwise known as “lights out” or “automatic” factories—are manufacturing facilities that do not depend on human labor to get work done. While they may have some beneﬁts for the environment they are certainly not beneﬁcial overall considering the impact widespread adoption would have on needed jobs. Without human line workers, such factories can operate without lights, heating and cooling and other “amenities” required by human workers. Of course, very few such facilities are completely automated, as human workers are usually required to set up equipment or remove completed parts. And some run “lights-out” between human labor shifts or as separate shifts to meet increasing demand or save money. And while the up-front costs of setting up automated work routines manned by robots and other machines may be higher than setting up a traditional factory, on-going expenses can be signiﬁcantly less given the lack of human payroll and other human-centric outlays. The ﬁrst dark factories started appearing in Japan in the 1980s as companies there started to take advantage of improvements in the technology of robotics and automation to get around the high costs of human labor. At that time, business analysts predicted then that as technology improved and qualiﬁed workers became harder to ﬁnd and more expensive to support, dark factories would become more prevalent around the world. But in the interim the spread of manufacturing to developing nations with cheap human labor may have temporarily forestalled the rise of dark factories. Also, General Motors’ unsuccessful

That said, there are many thriving examples of dark factories around the world. Many machine shops in the U.S. run “unattended” all or part of the time. Robots are commonplace now in the auto industry despite GM’s faltering early on. Amazon.com makes extensive use of robotic systems in its distribution centers and last year even acquired the company behind the technology, Kiva Systems, for $775 million in cash. In Japan, FANUC Robotics operates a lights-out factory employing robots to make other robots. Japanese camera giant Canon recently announced that it is phasing out human workers

at several camera factories by 2015. And in the Netherlands, Philips produces electric razors in a facility with 128 robots and nine human quality assurance workers. While widespread adoption, lights-out manufacturing could deliver substantial energy savings and thus be environmentally beneﬁcial, but analysts wonder whether replacing human laborers with computers, machines and robots is a good thing for humanity overall. According to NaturalNews.com editor Mike Adams, the rise of automation is more likely to sharply divide the economic classes and cause widespread strife. “Those who are replaced by robots will become jobless and homeless,” he explains. “Those whose lives are enriched by the beneﬁt of the
(NAPSA)-Many are surprised when they learn of the contributions that people who are blind make to both this country's economy and armed forces. For example, when the United States entered World War II, the American industrial base was in many cases staffed by people who were blind. They produced millions of the products used by the military both during the war and since then. National Industries for the Blind (NIB), the nation's leading employment resource for people who are blind, understands the capabilities of people who are blind and has helped thousands actively participate in the workforce, ad_vance their careers and lead independent lives. This mission is important because 70 percent of working- For over 75 years, people who are blind age Americans who are blind, have been producing products that meet some of whom are military the exacting speciﬁcations of the U.S. military. veterans, are not employed.

Defending Your Right To Vote On Taxes
by Jon Coupal
At the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association, we receive thousands of calls each year from taxpayers with questions and concerns. Of all those, about two dozen stand out because they are complaints that HJTA is responsible for raising their taxes. The callers tell us that a local government agency wants to impose an assessment on their property and they have received notice and a mail in ballot. When they called the ofﬁcials responsible for the assessment, they have been told “it is Jarvis’ fault because they passed Proposition 218." Now this may not be a whopper of the magnitude of “If you like your policy, you can keep it,” but it is almost as misleading. Here is what is going on. Proposition 218, the Right to Vote on Taxes Act, placed on the ballot by HJTA and approved by the voters in 1996, requires that those who are to be assessed be sent notice by mail and provided a ballot so they can cast a protest vote. So, to the extent that the homeowner is being informed and being sent a ballot, this much is HJTA’s fault. The government agency is still completely responsible for efforts to impose an assessment. Assessment districts in California go back over 100 years. Assessments are commonly used for services that add value to property, like sidewalks, sewer and water. Prior to the passage of Proposition 218, all the agency sponsoring the assessment had to do was provide “constructive notice,” which amounted to placing a notice in the classiﬁed section of the local newspaper. Since few, if any property owners saw the notiﬁcation, the ﬁrst time most folks became aware of the assessment was when it appeared on the next property tax bill. Proposition 218 dragged the assessment process out into the open by requiring direct notiﬁcation to property owners along with a simple ballot – under the old rules the homeowner had to compose a letter, provide a reason for the objection to the assessment, and look up and include their property parcel number. Even then, a majority of all property owners had to submit letters in order to defeat the assessment. No wonder assessments were always “approved” under the prior system. But Proposition 218 did a lot
more than just give property owners a say on assessments. It plugged court created loopholes in Proposition 13. When Howard Jarvis and Paul Gann wrote Proposition 13 it was supposed to include the right of voters to approve new local taxes. Several court decisions whittled this right down to almost nothing, so Proposition 218 was written to correct these defects and guarantee that voters would have the ﬁnal say on new local special and general taxes. Finally, Proposition 218 made the initiative process more accessible to voters who want to make changes to local tax law. By plugging loopholes in Proposition 13 and opening up the assessment process, Proposition 218 represents a signiﬁcant advancement in taxpayer rights. However, not everyone is happy with allowing voters and property owners to participate in their own taxation. Attorneys working for government agencies are constantly looking for ways to circumvent Proposition 218 and they are achieving some success. Adverse decisions in two recent court cases, put taxpayers’ rights in jeopardy. In one, a water agency refused to place a duly qualiﬁed initiative that would have limited water rates, on the ballot and sued the sponsors of the measure with the intent of delaying the process until it was too late to place the initiative before the voters. The court allowed this blatant circumvention Proposition 218. In the second case, a water agency is charging property owners who pump water from their own wells on their own property, a fee to build a pipeline and distribution system to provide piped water to others who will not be required to pay the fee. Proposition 218 requires that those charged a fee receive a service in return, but the court sided with the water agency saying that the fee provided a public beneﬁt for the common good. HJTA is actively looking for legal and legislative solutions to these court created loopholes in Proposition 218. These examples demonstrate how important it is that taxpayers remain vigilant and prepared to defend the taxpayer protections we have all fought so hard to establish. It is sad to say, but we can’t trust government to look after our interests.

• It was beloved American pianist and comedian Jimmy Durante who made the following sage observation: "Be nice to people on your way up because you meet them on your way down." • Famed markswoman and exhibition shooter Annie Oakley was born the daughter of Quakers, who gave her the name Phoebe Ann Moses. • It was in July 1911 when daredevil Bobby Leach became the second person (and the ﬁrst man) to go over Niagara Falls in a barrel. His daring came at a cost, though; he spent six months in a hospital, recovering from injuries due to his feat. He later went on publicity tours, recounting his experience and posing with the barrel that took him over the falls. He was on one such tour in New Zealand in 1926 when he slipped on an orange peel, injuring his leg slightly. The leg became infected, necessitating an amputation -- which still didn't save him. He died two months later, the daredevil felled by a citrus rind. • Those who study such things say that fully 10 percent of the country's total income is due to organized crime. • You might be surprised to learn that only two out of every 10 ears of corn grown in the United States actually ends up being eaten by people. The other eight are destined to feed animals and to be made into ethanol gasoline. • If you're like more than half of all Americans, you'd be willing to live in a haunted house -provided you didn't have to pay rent. • There are those who say that actor Johnny Depp is afraid of clowns. *** Thought for the Day: "This country has come to feel the same when Congress is in session as when the baby gets hold of a hammer." -- Will Rogers © 2014 King Features Syndicate, Inc.

With potatoes replacing the cream traditionally used in chowder recipes, this is a fast, economical and healthy soup that will keep the chill away until spring. KALE AND POTATO CHOWDER 4 cups chopped fresh kale, stems removed 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil 1 medium onion, diced 1 1/2 teaspoons salt 1 1/2 teaspoons ground black pepper 1 tablespoon poultry seasoning or Italian seasoning 4 cloves garlic, diced 1 (14-ounce) can diced tomatoes -- no salt added, with liquid 4 large baking potatoes, diced with skin 3 cups water 2 cups low-sodium chicken broth 1 large carrot, sliced into thin rounds 1 (15-ounce) can kidney beans, drained and rinsed 1. In a large pot, heat the oil. Add onions, salt, pepper and poultry or Italian seasoning; cook until onions are tender, about 3 to 5 minutes. Add garlic and the tomatoes, and cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the potatoes, water and broth to the soup pot. Bring the ingredients to a boil and reduce to a simmer. Cook until potatoes are almost done, about 10 minutes. 2. Remove 2 cups of the potatoes along with some of the liquid. Place the potatoes and liquid into a blender. Carefully loosen the top of the blender to allow air to circulate, and cover the top with a dish towel to prevent the hot liquid from exploding out. Start blending on the lowest setting, and gradually increase to medium and then high. Blend until the potatoes are

But between the socializing rounds and the workplace tasks, there are opportunities for special moments with that certain someone.

achieving it, and don't allow yourself to be distracted by unimportant demands for your attention. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) A temperamental ﬂare-up creates negative feelings that need to be dealt with immediately. But things once again go well after the apologies are made and hurt feelings are soothed. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) An early impulsive act causes confusion. But all is smoothed over once explanations are made. Expect a friend or family member to ask for your kind and always wise advice. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) You might have to do some juggling of your priorities, as a personal matter appears to require more time and attention. Put your pride aside and accept help from those who offer it. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Your creative aspect is strong. Not only does it help you accomplish your goals, but it also inspires others. This could lead to a potentially rewarding collaboration opportunity. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Be careful about making major decisions when you're not really committed to them. And resist any pressure to do otherwise. Better to delay action until all doubts are resolved. BORN THIS WEEK: You set goals and are rarely distracted by any attempt to move you off the path you've chosen to reach them.
