American Legion Family Prescribes Medical Clinic Fundraising Terry Munt had been receiving his three-month supply of cholesterol medication from his pharmacy for a co-pay of $183.00. According to Terry, because of the Affordable Care Act, his insurance was cancelled and his investigation and pricing of a new approved insurance plan was not only going to cost him more but his deductibles were going to be much higher before any co-pays began to kick in. Additionally, he said that “he was not going to be able to keep his current Doctors, among them Doctor Merrick.” Terry decided to go on his own for his health care and pay out of pocket as his needs arose. He went to CVS for his medication and was stunned to find that his cash price for a three-month supply of medicine was going to cost $2,000.00. This is not a negative or positive story on the Affordable Care Act (Obama Care) or the American health care system turned on its head. This is not about the high cost of medicine or all the political shenanigans that have been going on for years regarding Americans, their Doctors or their medication. This is a story of local health care, the dedicated people that are pushing like crazy to keep it here and bring medical specialists to Julian. In Terry’s case, the typical health care provider, (notice I didn’t say Doctor, get used to it) would probably make a note to the patients record that the patient is not taking prescribed meds (not my fault). According to Terry, Doctor Merrick became very involved. He wanted his patient to take an important medication that would help maintain his health. He worked with the Borrego Community Health Clinic and they were able to provide Terry his three months of prescription medication for $28.00. What’s happening with the Julian Medical Clinic requires a little history. On or around 1991 The Julian Medical Foundation was formed as an incorporated non-profit. Prior to that time the Julian Chamber of Commerce was responsible for bringing physicians to Julian. The original purpose of one of the Foundation’s early committees was to bring an X-ray machine to Julian. Old timers joked that if you needed to have an X-ray you’d have to go to the Vet. Not much has changed in regard to the physical structure of the Julian Medical Clinic. For a long time it has been housed in a building on Washington St. owned by the Chamber of Commerce. It was built a long time ago as an adjunct to the Fire House, which was housed in the present Candied Apple Bakery. While the building has gone under extensive remodeling the past few years, it is best described as “quaint”. Bottom line is, it has serious, “small” issues. At some time in the 1990s Doctor Merrick and his wife came to Julian and ran a private practice out of the building. About the same time, Bruce Hebets was becoming involved with the Borrego Community Heath Foundation after being involved with the San Ysidro Clinic System. Through his diligence and expertise he was able to turn Borrego into a Federal Qualified Health Center.

School Is Back In Session

by Bill Fink

In the medical business, this opens a lot of doors to funding and acceptance as a provider for insurance companies and government insurance programs. Around 2004 Doctor Merrick sold the Julian Clinic to the Borrego Community Health Foundation. According to Chuck Kimball of the Julian Medical Foundation, Bruce Hebets turned a roughly $400,000.00 single Borrego location into about 20 medical and dental clinics, as well as pharmacy, children center, home care, and mobile medical and dental services into a $50,000,000.00 non-profit operation as of 2012. He did this in medically under-served communities in San Diego and Riverside counties. The bottom line for the Julian Medical Clinic is that operating independently had been a tough row to hoe. In a small community it is difficult to keep Doctors and to attract the attention of insurers that are willing to accept small operations as providers. With its affiliation with Borrego the opportunity for growth and greater service to our community is really enhanced. The affiliation with Borrego has been a Godsend to Julian locals and so has that other non-profit, the Julian Medical Foundation. Since 2008 they have been looking to procure a property in Julian and in 2009 they purchased the property on A Street. Since that time, in addition to raising money to make a “state of the art” building a reality, they have engaged an architect, have been developing plans and specifications and processing and obtaining approvals through the myriad of agencies that have their fingers in this development. Additionally, the foundation has negotiated a long-term lease with the Borrego Community Health Foundation that will cover the costs of end loan financing and will provide funds for contingency maintenance and disaster costs. The bottom line is that building and property are owned by a Julian non-profit and leased by a financially solid partner. Doctor Wylie said that by moving to the new facility “it provides the opportunity for Julian to engage Doctors in the fields of Ob Gyn, Psychiatry, Cardiology with the potential for ENT, Dermatology and other specialized fields.” Certainly the possibility exists for Urgent Care and Doc Wylie was excited about the possibility of an Osteopathic treatment room. All this takes money. According to Chuck Kimball, the project will cost over a million dollars. Private donors are a source as well as public fundraising. Of course partnering with an organization like Borrego, being a Federal Qualified Health Center, the doors to grants gets opened real wide. Not long ago Alan Marvin of the Julian group came to the American Legion Family in

You are invited to a free picture show of Cuyamaca's delightful Green Valley and its ancient "San Diego Trail." Ed Huffman and Albert Simonson searched there for the last Indian village of Mitaragui, where mountain Kumeyaay indians were astonished by a visit from Governor Fages, his elite Catalonian volunteers, and presidio leatherjacket soldiers. It was a tense but amicable encounter of European and American culture, in 1782. You will hear about accomplishments of exploration and diplomacy but also challenges of hunger, grizzly bears, a demanding king, and a saucy young society wife who demanded a first and scandalous divorce in our Spanish America, on grounds of adultery, all in abundant detail. There will be pictures of uniforms and firearms, ballroom dress, old maps and testimony, useful native plants, a native hut, and a secluded cascade you will surely want to visit. Ed Huffman and Albert Simonson will be giving their presentation about tracing the “San Diego Trail” next Wednesday evening January 22, beginning at 7pm. As always, the presentation is free and all are invited. There will be free refreshments and good fellowship in The Julian Historical Society’s

MY DOG ALMOST DIED. It was Christmas night. One of our guests left her suitcase open and Molly (my dog) got ahold of the guest’s sugarless gum. The gum contained Xylitol. When it was pointed out to me that Xylitol is a deadly poison to dogs, I immediately took Molly to the all night emergency vet. She was on a constant dextrose drip for two days. At night she was in the emergency vet’s hospital. During the day she was given a drip at her regular vet’s hospital. I transported her with her IV to the regular vet each morning and to the emergency vet each afternoon. She survived because I acted immediately when I was how toxic Xylitol was and I got her to the vet before any symptoms occurred. Without immediate intervention a dog injecting Xylitol will appear lethargic, weak, have seizures, and quit eating. These symptoms may not appear for twelve to twenty-four hours. Needless to say, once the symptoms occur the prognosis of survival is not good. Xylitol, when entering a dog’s system, acts like a sugar, which it is not. The pancreas thinks it is sugar and acts to lower the needed amount of sugar in the blood stream. If the sugar level continues to drop, and is not stopped, the dog will die. If the dog survives, it will have to have its liver and kidneys checked several times over three or four weeks. I hope this information will help prevent any dog owner from having Xylitol kill their animal. I am so lucky I had a person at my home that knew how lethality of Xylitol. Mary Morris

Editors Note: The ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center cautions animal owners that xylitol, a sweetener found in certain sugarfree chewing gums, candies, baked goods and other products can potentially cause serious and even life-threatening problems for pets. “Last year, we managed more than 170 cases involving xylitolcontaining products,” says Dana Farbman, CVT and spokesperson for the Center. “This is a significant increase from 2004, when we managed about 70.” Barely halfway into 2006, the Center has already managed about 114 cases. Why the increase? “It’s difficult to say,” Farbman states. “Xylitol products are relatively new to the United States marketplace, so one possibility may be an increase in availability.” According to Dr. Eric Dunayer, veterinarian and toxicologist for the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center, dogs ingesting significant amounts of items sweetened with xylitol could develop a fairly sudden drop in blood sugar, resulting in depression, loss of coordination and seizures. “These signs can develop quite rapidly, at times less than 30 minutes after ingestion of the product. Therefore, it is crucial that pet owners seek veterinary treatment immediately.” Dr. Dunayer also stated that there appears to be a strong link between xylitol ingestions and the development of liver failure in dogs. While it was previously thought that only large concentrations of xylitol could result in problems, this appears to no longer be the case. “We seem to be learning new information with each subsequent case we manage,” says Dr. Dunayer. “Our concern used to be mainly with products that contain xylitol as one of the first ingredients. However, we have begun to see problems developing from ingestions of products with lesser amounts of this sweetener.” He also says that with smaller concentrations of xylitol, the onset of clinical signs could be delayed as much as 12 hours after ingestion. “Therefore, it is important to keep in mind that even if your pet does not develop signs right away, it does not mean that problems won’t develop later on.” The ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center strongly urges pet owners to be especially diligent in keeping candy, gum or other foods containing xylitol out of the reach of pets. As with any potentially toxic substance, should accidental exposures occur, it is important to contact your local veterinarian or the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center for immediate assistance.

Make, Model, Serial Number… Please Do you know the make, model, and serial number of everything you own? Few people do. If someone stole your chain saw, computer, weed whacker, or GPS would it be simple to identify and return to you? In most cases the answer is NO. When a Deputy Sheriff takes a theft report their goal is to gather as much information as possible to increase the likelihood of returning your property. You hold the key to increasing the chances of getting your items back. It is very frustrating for the Sheriff's Detectives when they recover a cache of chainsaws, hand tools, laptop computers and more but they can't identify the property to return it to the rightful owner. Modern technology makes it simple to record the make, model, and serial number of anything you own. In the "old days" we had to get out our pen and write down inventory information. Today, we can use our smartphones or digital camera to take a photo of the item and the area with the serial number and other identifying information. Store the information in a safe place – hopefully you'll never need it but if you do, you'll be very happy that you have it. Do you keep the receipts for the items you purchase? Technology has come to the rescue again – you can either take a photo of the receipts or scan them into your computer to create an inventory

file. You won't have to keep boxes of paper receipts – you can store the information digitally. Be sure to make a back-up copy of the inventory information – we all know someone who had all their family photos on a camera that was either lost or stolen – and now, no one in the family will talk to them because all of the photo memories are gone. Don't be that person. What about the "old fashion" way of identifying your property? Do you use a can of spray paint and mark your tools? Do you wrap a piece of colored tape around the handle to make it easy to find your equipment? There is a new product called "Crime Dots" you can purchase to secretly identify your property. The dots are applied to your property and law enforcement can "read" them with a special tool. You can still use an etching tool to inscribe your name or an Owner Applied Number onto the valuable items. Providing serial numbers, photos, and identifying information about your lost or stolen property is vital to solve crimes and, potentially, to return items to their true owners. You can make a difference in the outcome of a situation with just a little effort. Call Sheriff's Crime Prevention Specialist Barbara Wallace at (760) 738-2425 if you have questions or need other crime prevention information.

Even though we are only two full weeks into the new year, (2014! Yikes! ), it is time for the parents and families of Julian baseball and softball playing kids to step up to the plate so that your little Tony Gwynn's and Jennie Finch's are ready to take their own mighty swings come this March. Yep, that's right, baseball sign-ups are once again upon us and the Julian Little League is trying to make it even easier, as well as cheaper, for all involved this year with our January early bird special. When school starts this coming Monday (January 13th) baseball sign-up forms will be available at the elementary school office for easy pick-up and drop-off. Julian Little League is going old school this year when it comes to getting your kids signed up to play. There will be NO JLL website this year. Instead, we have decided to go face-to-face with everyone so that all questions and concerns can hopefully be attended to quickly, and hopefully, to everyone's satisfaction. This year for all who BEGIN the sign-up process in January, your cost will be $75. With one simple $25 down payment (per child) before midnight January 31'st, 2014, you will be locked into the discount price of $75. After the 31st the price goes up to $85, and March 1st, $95. All we ask is that you contact our Player Agent, Ms. Toni Sturla ( 760-803-1525 ) and make arrangements for a payment schedule , and you are good to go. How much easier can it get to sign your boys and girls up for a spring and summer full of fun on the beautiful diamonds of Jess Martin Park? When handing in your application you will also need three (3) proofs of residency, which must all be current. Also needed will be medical insurance info for your child, as well as an original copy of their birth certificate. If your child is a returning player then we should have your kids certificate on file, in which case all we need to do is see the original certificate. Little League rules are very strict with the residency and birth certificate obligations. We know it seems a bit of overkill at times, but we have learned from last years All-Star trip that these things will come into play. Not necessarily for our kids, but for other teams that we do play. All forms and payments , along with the required paperwork, may then be returned to the elementary school office or directly to Toni on Saturdays at youth basketball games, where she will be camped out watching games with the rest of us. Along with sign-up applications at the elementary school, we will also have volunteer applications available for all of you who simply must be a part of this years season. Coaching, umpiring, team moms, concessions, and a list of many other positions are always needed to make our season move smoothly, So don't be afraid......SIGN-UP! We also want to make everyone aware that we are already preselling tickets for a our annual breakfast sponsored by the Julian American Legion, one of our biggest supporters in the community. All monies will go to the purchase of equipment, supplies, and everything else that is needed every year in order to help our kids play ball. This is always a fun and popular time at the Legion, so we encourage everyone to get your tickets early. Through the years this event has proved to be the single biggest fundraiser each year for Julian Little League and we hope that it will continue to be for years to come. Thanks to everyone at the Julian American Legion for their time and effort! One last thing... When most folks hear the words Little League they think of baseball. All of us involved with JLL want all families and kids to remember that Little League is also all about SOFTBALL! We can't emphasize enough how much we want softball to be as big a part of Julian Little League as our baseball program. Parents, and especially the girls of Julian, SIGN-UP FOR SOFTBALL! We have the fields, the volunteers, and the spirit to make softball something special. Not only is it fun for the girls but in the long run it could lead to other things that we as parents don't always think about. Softball is a growing sport , especially in college. Scholarships are always available for softball, (as well as baseball). It's just something to think about, along with the fun your girls will have playing, with and against their friends. Keep your eyes peeled to the Julian News for more information about the upcoming season as we get closer and closer to spring!

Supervisors Seeing New Signs In Our Future

People living in or visiting San Diego County’s unincorporated communities may soon start seeing a lot more signs — welcoming them to town; telling them about special events; or directing them to local attractions — after County Supervisors unanimously approved new sign rules Wednesday. “I think the new sign and banner ordinance is going to help distinguish the unique characteristics of each of the unincorporated communities,” said Board Chairwoman Dianne Jacob. The board’s vote Wednesday(1/8) will repeal the County’s current policy of banning community signs on County roads and create new rules that allow a number of different kinds of signs and banners — permanent and temporary. Because the rule changes will create a new County ordinance, the action must be approved by the Board again when they meet Jan. 29, and would take effect 30 days after that. The staff report that was presented to the Board Wednesday said that allowing signs to be put up on County roads could establish a greater sense of place and community character without sacrificing road safety. Supervisor Bill Horn, who, with Jacob, brought the issue to the Board’s attention in 2012, said that cities have long been able to put up signs on their roads and that it was time that unincorporated communities had the same opportunity. “Signs bring new visitors and visitors bring money,” Horn said. “And that’s pretty simple.” The new rules would allow six types of community signs and banners to be put up in the public right-of-way in unincorporated communities: Community Identification Signs: ground mounted or street-spanning non-commercial civic-oriented decorative signs. Community Information Signs: ground mounted, non-commercial, civic-oriented decorative signs with changeable shingles that identify upcoming community events and enhance community character. Directional Wayfinding Signs: Networks of uniform, permanent, directional and destination signs to show people how to get to civic, cultural, visitor and recreational areas, so long as they are placed in or near established village areas. Neighborhood and Business Watch Signs. Horizontal Street Spanning Signs: temporary, decorative signs to announce or promote community events in a village area. Vertical Pole-Mounted Banners: temporary, decorative signs on street light poles to announce or promote community events or recognized holidays.

Start Smart Teen Driving Class The Start Smart Program is an opportunity for new drivers and their parents/guardians to clearly understand their responsibilities when a teen starts to drive. Taught by trained law enforcement personnel, it creates awareness of possible consequences, both financial and physical, of distracted or impaired driving, and provides applicable information about collision prevention. The class also clarifies the restrictions of the Provisional License Law and touches on social host ordinances. The often-graphic videos and daunting statistics provide a powerful reality check that lingers long after the classroom instruction. Following the two-hour class, each teen is presented a certificate of completion along with a customdesigned key-chain bearing the Trained theme of the Teen Safe Driving Sulser, District Manager Program, which will serve as a reminder each time he or she starts the car.

There are a few musicians who, when you say their name, garner the type of admiration from their brethren that Robin Henkel does. A San Diego native, he has been through the early rock & roll, bar band, high school dance circuit and jazz lounge scenes. If Robin has a passion though it is blues, not your over amplified stadium variety. He plays acoustic, resonator guitar, delta blues (he does use an electric guitar on occasion - tastefully). Robin is a musicians musician, sharing his craft, knowledge and skills. When you come out to Wynola Pizza this Friday for his six o’clock show you will get more than just some guy with a guitar(or 3) you will be in school, learning about the tunes that he will adeptly preform, and reveling in the music as it penetrates your soul. Order up, kick back and take it in, you’ll be glad you did.

Since releasing her sophomore album in October, Orange County singer/songwriter Alice Wallace has been busy getting her music in front of more and more audiences, and getting rave reviews in the meantime. The San Diego Troubadour said the new album spotlight's Wallace's "strong, passionate vocals and range in songwriting," and national Americana publication The Alternate Root quipped: "The strength of an Alice Wallace vocal delivery reaches out a firm hand as support for the heartbreak in her songs." Alice also just received a nomination for Best Country/Americana artist in the OC Music Awards, and is in the process of filming her third music video. As 2014 begins, Alice already has tours lined up stretching from Florida to Ohio to Utah, with more in the works. She will be bringing her music back to Wynola Pizza on Saturday, January 18th, for a set from 6 - 9 p.m. She will be accompanied by guitarist Tom Bremer, and will be introducing drummer Josh Huppert.

• On Jan. 17, 1865, Union Gen. William T. Sherman's army is delayed in Savannah, Ga., by 10 days of rain as it waits to begin marching into the Carolinas. Just as Sherman and his army had destroyed nearly everything in its path in Georgia, Sherman planned to subject the Carolinas to the same brutal treatment. • On Jan. 16, 1919, the 18th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, prohibiting the "manufacture, sale, or transportation of intoxicating liquors for beverage purposes," is ratified and becomes law. In 1933, the 21st Amendment to the Constitution repealed prohibition.

• On Jan. 15, 1936, Edsel Ford, son of auto pioneer Henry Ford, forms a philanthropic organization called the Ford Foundation with a donation of $25,000. The foundation was established in part as a legal way for the Ford family to avoid inheritance taxes. • On Jan. 14, 1954, Hollywood star Marilyn Monroe marries New York Yankees slugger Joe DiMaggio. The marriage barely got past the honeymoon, and they were divorced 274 days later. In her filing, Monroe accused her husband of "mental cruelty." • On Jan. 13, 1962, comedian Ernie Kovacs, who hosted his own television shows during the 1950s, dies after crashing his Chevrolet Corvair into a telephone pole in Los Angeles while driving in a rainstorm. The Corvair was later made infamous by Ralph Nader's groundbreaking 1965

In part two of The Final Journey we discussed the Mental, Physical and Spiritual toll a family endures in caring for one with a terminal diagnosis. We emphasized the importance of open communication, respecting the wishes of our loved one and how to prepare ourselves for that time when our loved one expresses the desire to stop fighting and accept the reality that a cure is no longer possible. We acknowledged the emotional turmoil that caregivers feel as they know the outcome will leave them behind to mourn their loss. It takes a deeply committed love to set our own feelings aside to support the wishes of the person on this Final Journey. So now we are seeking comfort and quality of life for as long as we have together. This is best managed by Hospice Care whose sole purpose is to create a team of experts committed to developing a plan of care that will allowing your loved one relief from pain, and other uncomfortable symptoms. Hospice is not all about death, instead more about creating an environment where the patient and their family can live as comfortably as possible, for as long as possible. It is about understanding the dying process and providing an environment in your home or in special care settings that support all involved in this final journey to the end of life. As a Hospice RN I have observed many subtle clues that your loved one may exhibit which are indications that the dying process has started. There is no way to estimate a timeframe as to days, weeks or months as each death is individual and circumstances other than the physical body’s decline, can influence how long this process will take. It is absolutely amazing how the dying loved one maintains control of their death by bringing families together, providing healing of old wounds, forgiving or seeking forgiveness, in preparation for this separation. This occurs without conscious awareness, it is simply completing a checklist as they prepare to leave us behind, though often provides comfort and healing to the family unit. I have listed other subtle symptoms of your loved one’s checklist that seem to be consistently observed on a majority of patients. Keep in mind these are not conscious things and my comments are based on my many years of experience and my interpretation of their possible significance in the dying process. Caregivers and family members may notice any or all of these during the next days, or weeks. • Loss in desire to eat, even favorite foods • The first system the body begins to shut down is the GI system. It is not uncomfortable, yet very effective at slowing the other bodily systems in preparation for death. Since the digestive system is shutting down, to force feed the patient can cause bloating, nausea and more discomfort so respect their wishes. If they want to eat, let them, but most likely it will be for oral gratification not nutritional need. • Sleeping much more, anytime day or night • This allows the body to spend more time with the subconscious, which I liken to having one foot on the other side. It is here that dreams and visions of angels, or dying loved ones provide comfort to our patient, it is as though the veil between this world and the other side thins and when asleep your loved one is in a very peaceful place. While awake they are more aware of the pain, physical discomfort and also anxiety that family members may be having. Sit quietly beside them. They are aware of your presence at some level and allowing them to sleep as long as they need respects the work they are doing that we cannot understand. • Withdrawing, and disinterest in things they usually enjoy. • This could be a distancing from family and friends in preparation for their journey away from them. • A need to organize and fix things that are unimportant • Often seen when the patient has a “knowing” that they will be leaving soon and they must get things in order before they leave. They don’t say that they just put things in order. I doubt they know why, they just feel compelled to do it. • Increased talking about the past, work, family, or youth. • All experts agree we go through a life review before we die. Encourage them to talk about this. Often they can be seen physically acting out in ways their review reminds them of. This is often seen as anxiety, when it may just be swimming or climbing, or some activity related to the content of the review they are experiencing. • Asking questions about heaven or expressing an interest in what happens after you die • They often speak of seeing light, spirits, or an essence of someplace in the distance, this leads them to ask about such things • Reaching up or talking more while sleeping • Sometimes carrying on conversations during sleep is seen as hallucinations, though often they are seeing things or people and they are real to them. Allow them to share what they experience, it could be a gift to you. • Blank stares often directed upward (such as toward a corner of their ceiling) • As they get closer they see something that we cannot and you usually will find that they stare intently at it. Most often they are not afraid, instead interested and surprised you can’t see what they see. • A burst of energy and alertness we call a “Rally” • Families often misinterpret this as a reversal from the dying process. Instead I believe it is usually a final push from your loved one to connect one last time. So savor and cherish the moments. As I have always said each death is very unique and completely unscripted, though most any nurse, hospice worker or caregiver can attest to seeing some or most of these in their loved ones or patients. With an awareness of this you and your family will be able to support and share these experiences with your loved one. Family members often witness some variations of these and are concerned it is overmedication of pain or sedation causing chemically induced hallucinations or restlessness. This is rarely the cause, and to withhold these medications could well increase your loved one’s discomfort. As your loved one’s caregiver you help them most by going along with

I’ve been a facebook user for less than two years. I’ve seen it change from something gossipy and political to something useful. Here in Julian we have several facebook pages just for people in Julian and the surrounding areas. Ramona also has similar pages. What I really like about these pages is that they are actually helpful. All the opinionated entries have become less and less prominent and the entries that are helpful or educational are showing up more and more often. The political postings that manage to show up on Julian pages are pertinent to Julian, not to San Diego and not to Southern California in general. My favorite facebook pages are community type pages. Lost dogs are often announced and then numbers of people help find the missing dogs. Pictures of new babies, favorite recipes and animals, both pets and farm animals are posted. Some of my favorite photos show new baby goats. They are just so darn cute! One user had to get rid of her farm animals really quickly. By posting her need on Julian Connection, she was able to find caring homes for all of her animals. Another user is moving and needs to get rid of empty boxes and other trash in a hurry. Her need was met right away. Facebook in Julian has proven to be a huge blessing. On our local facebook pages we get to see prom photos, sport photos of local students and graduation photos posted by proud parents and grandparents. I’ve seen progress photos of the garden at Julian Elementary school. I’ve seen many wondrous photos of sunsets and a few photos of local rainbows. One shop keeper posts nightly photos of sunsets that she takes each evening before she leaves her shop for the night. I’m grateful that she takes the time to share so much beauty with us all. On our Julian facebook pages we ask if we will be getting rain or snow, and exactly where. Answers come rapidly and accurately. People feel free to ask for help when needed or for beds, carpet, excess fruit and hundreds of other items that people need or that people need to get gone. When I needed a cherry pitter, I posted my need on a Julian facebook page and bought one locally within days. It was cheaper and quicker than buying one on the internet. Recipes are often posted when asked for. Currently I have a friend helping me to find a really good dill pickle recipe. I’ve tried some that were too spicy or garlicky and what I want is one that tastes like a real Kosher style dill pickle that I can hot pack without a pressure canner and then store my pickles on a shelf without taking up space in my refrigerator. I know from experience that one of my facebook friends will find just the right recipe for me. With the recipe in hand, I will be ready for my cucumbers and dill when they are ripe. Announcements are made for public meetings, musical and other local events, fundraising dinners and other calendar items that may otherwise go by unnoticed. Community group meeting times for local clubs along with library events have been asked for and answered. I post notices for the Julian Historical Society programs because they are interesting and each program teaches us something more about Julian’s history. I also post notices for time and days for people to pick up distributed food from Feeding America. I post ideas for using the food we pick up on Feeding America distribution days because sometimes many of us don’t know how to cook the fresh vegetables that we receive. As a side note, spaghetti squash can be cut in half lengthwise, and then steamed until soft. Use a fork to pull the strings out of the shell and serve with spaghetti sauce. All of that broccoli we received can be cut up and blanched (dipped for a short time in boiling water), cooled, and then put into Ziploc bags. The broccoli can also be added to cheese soup, omelets, pasta and salads. Ask the question of what to do with several pounds of broccoli or most any other question about practical things at Julian Connection on facebook and you will get lots of answers. I’ve seen posts from people selling firewood and from people buying scrap metal. Selling one or two items when you didn’t make the deadline to publish in The Julian News, works on facebook. Having a candle party, an essential oil party, a fundraising dinner at The American Legion or at Julian High School, and you can post it on a Julian page on facebook. My husband Mike posts weather conditions for at least two or three days in advance. Some users post information on traffic accidents and road construction delays. Hunters that are poaching get shown or at least talked about. When we find arrows in our yard where hunting or trespassing are absolutely not allowed, we tell our facebook friends. Mountain lion sightings get posted and congratulations for birthdays, anniversaries and other special personal events sometimes are announced with photos. I like humorous postings and one of my favorites was from a neighbor who talked about her teenage rooster. He tries to crow, but just like a teenage human boy, his voice comes out squeaky. A little humor can bring great chuckles. Death notices get posted and lots of hugs follow. That shows what a great community we live in. The postings I see on our local Julian facebook pages give me more reasons to be happy to live in the Julian area. Noticing the positive changes that have evolved with our local facebook users makes me glad I jumped on this wagon and have held on. Anyone need vegetable seeds? You can find details on facebook/ Julian Connection. These are my thoughts.

When you do this you will find your loved one will settle peacefully and you can find solace in knowing that you, in some small way, helped them find peace and comfort in their final days.

This Is Not A NIMBY Thing We can’t nationalize SDG&E because it shouldn’t be a ‘national’ government run industry; it should belong to California. So perhaps we need to find another word. WHY, you ask, even THINK about such a move? How horridly LIBERAL! Not to mention Socialist. Well, read on. SDG&E is supporting (e.g. has contracted to buy electricity from) a solar installation in Wynola, which will bulldoze over 100 trees, move boulders, and generally create an ugly eyesore and be a very unwelcome neighbor to the property owners there. Solar is good? Yes. Solar is always good everywhere? No. If, instead condoning the destruction of many acres of our beautiful back country, SDG&E were to support putting solar installation on house roofs (like yours and mine) it could probably create the same amount of electricity at less cost. But this wouldn’t create PROFITS and pay various corporate bureaucrats their high salaries. Such as the $2,500,000 plus compensation package for SDG&E’s CEO (as of 2010, that is) that keeps him on the job. No one in the Federal Government I know received anything near a $2,500,000 compensation package though it is true that State and County employees seem to do better. But, you say, SDG&E is owned by the people and they get profits, too. Maybe, eventually, but... The same official report that detailed generous compensation packages for top officers (they’re not as generous, you can be sure, for the guys we know out working on the lines) stated, “All of the outstanding SDG&E common stock is owned by Enova Corporation and all of the outstanding common stock of Enova Corporation is owned by Sempra Energy.” In 2012 the Executive Chairman of Sempra Energy, received compensation for his hard work of $8,209,671. Another report says Enova is a “Holding company formed in 1996 for the San Diego Gas & Electric Company. While there are several other companies under the Enova rubric, 97% of its revenue is from SDG&E. Enova merged in 1998 with Pacific Enterprises to form Sempra Energy. Enova is still maintained as a subsidiary.” You think the Government is confusing? Not like this. The whole Wynola Project, in fact, seems a bit, er, opaque, top to bottom. Both the addresses for Michael Melone, the applicant for a county permit for the Wynola project (14 Wall Street, 20th Floor, NY) and for the Owner, Calico Ranch Solar, LLC (222 S. 9th St., Suite 1600, Minneapolis) are advertised on the Internet as “virtual office space.” One hopes for Mr. Melone’s sake that he shares the 20th floor with others as in June and July of last year a series of scamming letters was sent out from the address. Ecos Energy, which the U-T reported is in charge of the project (and owned by one Thomas Melone???) also has the Minnesota ‘virtual office space’ address and Thomas Melone is also President of Allco Renewable Energy for which Michael Melone, who submitted the application to the County, apparently also works and which is reportedly connected to the Wynola project… Maybe the right word is “statize”? “California-ize?” How about simply expropriate and put power back into the hands of the people, where it was before Enron came along?

some black-eyed peas. Black-eyed peas are actually a bean. They get their names from their characteristic appearance. They are white legumes with a small black dot resembling an eye. Black-eyed peas are included in the “Meat and Beans” section of the Food Guide Pyramid, created by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The bean can be used as an alterative protein source to meat. In fact, many vegetarians use legumes like blackeyed peas to substitute for meat when planning meals. One serving of black-eyed peas is equal to one-half cup and contains 70 calories. They are a lowcalorie option when served without additional condiments. The majority of calories come from carbohydrate sources (16 grams). Each serving also contains three grams of protein. The beans do not contain any fat or cholesterol. Black-eyed peas are especially rich sources of potassium, zinc and iron.

One of the main health benefits of black-eyed peas is their high fiber content. One-half cup of dry blackeyed peas that are cooked have 5.6 grams of fiber, while a 1/2 cup of canned black-eyed peas contains 4 grams. These amounts will vary among brands. Fiber is a nutrient that helps regulate your digestive system, and increasing your intake could help alleviate constipation and symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome. Fiber also helps keep your cholesterol levels healthy by preventing cholesterol from being absorbed into your bloodstream, which reduces your risk of developing heart disease. Additionally, high-fiber foods keep you feeling full, since they are digested slowly -- which is important for weight control. Black-eyed peas make a good addition to soups, stews and salads and also are a healthy side dish. They are available dried, frozen and continued on page 14

Exploring Genealogy

As The Acorn Falls

HEALTH and PERSONAL SERVICES Marriages on the Mountain

by Sherry Wilson Lutes

email:genealogyfirst@gmail.com

Welcome. This is week two in the quest to find the “nuts” in your family tree. What did you discover as you filled out your pedigree charts and family group records? Did you find that you had a lot of holes in your pedigree charts or family group records? This week I will give you some ideas of where to look for missing information. I know mine has a lot of holes. Did you get started on your 52 Weeks of Personal Genealogy? What New Year’s memories did you have? Letʼs get started Step 2: Use sources in your home. Where might you look for that missing or incomplete information on your pedigree charts/family group records? Useful sources include birth, marriage, and death certificates; family Bibles; funeral programs; obituaries; wedding announcements; newspaper articles; photos: or anything that might have important family information. It can be helpful to have a “box” to place all these sources. As you come across items of interest place them in the box. Add the information you find to your family’s pedigree charts and family group records. Record the sources of the information in the notes or sources section on the forms or in your family history program. This helps you and others know where the information came from. Next column – Ask your relatives 52 Weeks of Personal Genealogy Week #2 – Winter Memories What was winter like where and when you grew up? Describe not only the climate, but how the season influenced your activities, food choices, etc. My memories of winter. Growing up in Lakeside there wasn't much of a winter but with grandparents living in Julian we spent many weekends here. Grandma always had cookies in the cookie jar and a warm fire going. Here is last weeks prompt (If you missed last week-each week I will be giving you a prompt that will invite you to record memories and insights about your own life for future descendants (52 weeks of Personal Genealogy). Write down your memories on your computer, in your journal or start a new journal. Week #1 – New Year’s Memories Did your family have any New Year’s traditions? How was the New Year celebrated during your childhood? Have you kept these traditions in the present day?! Taken from “52 Weeks of Personal Genealogy and Family History” by Amy Coffin.

Lateral Dominance And Its Relationship To Behavior And Learning Difficulties - Part III

by Delina Robair, MEd., Developmental Child Specialist

"Motor activities are always connected with learning processes." Quiros & Schrager, MDs &PhD's Educational research has brought to light that Dominance plays a great part in behavior and learning difficulties, and is a factor which should be taken into account in the home and school life of the child. Dominance is a developed preference for using one side of our body when reacting to sense perceptions and in making movements. A normative preference in the Western world is to develop the right side of the body for initiating movement allowing the left side to assume the role of helper. A dominant (or preferred) right side of the body has developed a right ear for listening, right eye for focusing, right hand for writing, right clasp, and right foot for standing balance. In recent times, however, the avalanche of mechanical man-made sense impressions besieges the growing child and can cause disturbances in the natural development of the body. These disturbances can interfere when the quiet repetitive routines of life in babyhood are cut short and the child's initiative faculties are no longer rightly engaged in harmonious, natural movements of the whole body. Turning switches and twisting knobs, fitting shapes together in games, is no substitute for bouncing balls, jumping rope, or bike riding. (Genetics is also a factor in a developed dominance.) Too early and too complicated activities that are demanded from the senses today can cause many children who are right-handed to use their left eye when looking at objects rather than their right eye. This is termed a cross dominance between the eye and hand, displacing the normal laterality of the body. Then, too, there are the growing numbers of children who use the left hand while retaining the dominance of the right eye. To complicate matters further, the righthanded child may prefer his/her left foot for starting movements or supporting him/herself. Thus, a zigzag of dominating members of the body can happen: example left eye, right hand, left leg. Some children can cope with such a complicated laterality of mixed dominance, but experience shows us that this mixture is an important factor behind behavior and learning problems and is one which should not be overlooked in the education of our children in the home and at school. A screen before starting Kindergarten can determine if your child or grandchild is developing a cross in lateral dominance. This is a sign that further help with lateral integration can make a significant difference with higher level learning abilities. (It must be noted that dominance of the eye has nothing to do with the strength of sight. Thus, adding to the complications of the dominance factor in children is the number of them whose dominance eye is the one with the weaker sight ) Insufficient guidance in the formative years leaves some children struggling with the ambidexterity of babyhood, often unsuccessfully. Activities with normal righthanded orientation are disappearing in our daily living: sweeping, polishing, beating eggs, stirring cakes, repairing, etc. Their modern substitutes, such as sitting to do passive rather than active activities, do little to integrate the vital thirteen developmental motor skills that build the foundation for higher level learning. The result is slowness in developing skills and weakened powers of concentration. Part IV: Introduction to the Left-handed or Mixed Dominant Child: Recognition = Help

A security thread and microprinting were introduced to American monetary notes in 1990. This was done to deter counterfeiting by technologically advanced copiers and printers.

Guide 1700-1950" by Barbara Johnson. Both are available at amazon.com. *** Q: I have a Lone Ranger comic book, Vol. 1, No. 139, issued in May 1961 by Dell. Is there any value to it? -- Ted, Casper, Wyo. A: According to the "Comic Book Checklist & Price Guide" by Maggie Thompson, Brent Frankenhoff and Peter Bickford (Krause Books), your comic book could be worth as much $45. I say "could" because condition is extremely important when

determining the value of comics. If your comic shows any wear, it would be worth a fraction of that amount. *** Q: I have a piece of campaign sheet music, "A March to Eisenhower," a souvenir of the 1953 inauguration. Do you have any idea of how much it is worth? -- Laura, Pasco, Wash. A: I contacted several sheetmusic collectors, who seem to agree that your "A March to Eisenhower" is worth in the $20$30 range, depending, of course, on condition.

I was a part of an historic weather event last week. I was in WwwwwwWisconsin, (I still stutter thinking about it), during the recent polar vortex. I have never been in cold, not cold, frigid, no not frigid, freezing, no, way below freezing, way below zero, like 30 degrees below zero. Local stations said that with wind-chill it was probably somewhere between 40 and 70 below but they weren’t going out to check. During my time in the great white way, the beautiful country that borders Canada, I spent most of my time sitting in a Lazyboy. In the morning I drank coffee, took ten minutes to read the local rag cover to cover. Took another ten to do the crossword puzzle. Watched the news. Watched football, some great college games, “Oh yah” “You betchah”. Ate breakfast, drank coffee, ate lunch, drank water, ate dinner, drank water, there was no booze in the house and I wasn’t going out to get it. Stayed up late watching TV trying to get tired. Went to bed wasn’t tired because I was sitting around all day so I couldn’t sleep. Day two. Same as day one except I fell asleep a lot on the lazy boy from being up all night. Night of day two, couldn’t sleep because of all the naps I took on the lazy boy during the day. Day three, see day two. Day four. I was bound and determined to do something exciting. Wal-Mart, yes! That would be good. The guy on TV instructed me that you had to run the car for at least a half an hour before you go anywhere so it can warm up. Not believing him, I run out to the garage, start the car, figuring I’d give it five minutes and jam. Five minutes later, jump in the car, turn on the heat full blast, and back up to the end of the driveway, put it in forward back to the garage and into the house to give it the rest of the half hour to warm up. I get to Wal-Mart, there’s a parking lot full of cars and they’re all running. Nobody shuts them off. I did because I’m from California via New Jersey and nobody from where I come from leaves a running car in a parking lot at Wal-Mart. Except in Wisconsin. I get inside, and I don’t really know why I’m there except for a little excitement. The only difference between Wisconsin and California WalMarts is you can get cheese curds at the Wisconsin Wal-Mart. After a half an hour I go back to my car and an old gal sees me and says, “You know… you’re going to have to let that thing run for 30 minutes sonny.” Really? I start the car and it’s so cold that I can’t believe the oil hasn’t frozen, the engine block hasn’t cracked and the tires haven’t frozen to the pavement. I go back into WalMart for the proverbial half hour

warm-up. By Sunday I’m excited because the Chargers are on. No one in Wisconsin cares because they’re only the warm up for the Packers later that day. I’m watching the Packer game and I’m miserable because I’m looking at these guys in short sleeve shirts playing football on a brown, frozen field. Of course I’m a couple hours north of Green Bay where it’s really cold and those guys are playing in a balmy 7 below according to Janice’s brother. The Packers lose and after the game the entire state of Wisconsin goes into mourning whether you care about football or not. The depression is like the plague. God help the wise guy that wants to make a crack about it. Janice wouldn’t let me out of the house. I did go outside for a photo with my Julian News. At the time it was right around 30 below and as a lark, I went out in a tee shirt. I did wear gloves and a hat. I’m not stupid,… that stupid. I can’t tell you that I actually felt cold. After about ten seconds I felt pain akin to being tightly wrapped in a blanket of needles. After about a minute my arm froze and fell off. Oh yah, you betcha. Other things I did, was glovelessly grab a gas nozzle to fuel the car. The pain was so intense as my hand stuck to the metal that I started slamming it against the pump to break it free. My hand broke off and the blood clotted instantly by freezing at my wrist. My initial impression of Wisconsin is that people are very polite. They’re proud of their Cheese Head moniker, they’re all Packer fans and it seems that everyone owns a Packer jersey, which lends a sense of color to a state that is white and dreadfully stark in winter. People go to the fish fry at their local restaurant on Friday night. Public bathrooms are cleaner, many give you a choice of paper towels or air dryers after you wash you hands and there is a surprising lack of ass gaskets, I mean toilet seat covers. I guess a frozen butt doesn’t spread germs as readily as it does in a warmer clime. People really say “Oh yah” and “You betcha”. Perfect strangers on the street look you right in the face. This is a common courtesy as they’re checking for frostbite. In all my time there I never saw a woman in a dress or with a lot of makeup on. I suppose that instead of protection against the cold, make-up freezes and cracks. I don’t have to think real hard why they don’t wear dresses. When you fly to a place like Chicago or Milwaukee from San Diego, you would think that as a courtesy they would gradually reduce temperatures from the warmth of the aircraft tube to baggage claim. Your first step into the sub zero wall of cold as you go through the double air lock is a shock to your sensibilities. I enjoyed my trip, the hours on a cramped aircraft, the interminable time in a lazy boy, staring out the window thinking of going for a walk (oh his sarcasm abounds) but be it ever so humble, there’s no place like home.

Dear EarthTalk: What is the Obama administration’s America’s Great Outdoors initiative and what does it hope to accomplish? -- Doug St. James, New York, NY President Obama signed a Presidential Memorandum in April 2010 establishing the America’s Great Outdoors Initiative to promote and support innovative community-level efforts to conserve outdoor spaces and reconnect Americans to the outdoors. The Memorandum calls for collaboration among the Departments of Interior and Agriculture as well as the Environmental Protection Agency and the White House’s own Council on Environmental Quality in leading the initiative. Eight other federal agencies play a supporting role—and literally thousands of other partners from state, local and tribal governments, non-profits and the private sector are involved as well. Getting young people, especially city kids, into the outdoors to experience our country’s unique natural heritage is a top priority of America’s

Great Outdoors. Before pursuing any specific strategies, initiative leaders solicited feedback from everyday Americans as to what mattered most to them regarding conservation and access to the outdoors. Some 105,000 written comments and many more spoken ones from “listening sessions” held coast to coast streamed in and were crucial to the development of programs. Public feedback continues to shape the initiative’s agenda. Some of the programs that fall under the umbrella of America’s Great Outdoors include: the Veterans Fire Corps, which employs veterans in forest fire management; the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s program providing technical training and work opportunities for underserved youth in habitat restoration and fisheries monitoring; and the establishment of a new network of “water trails” coast to coast to increase everyone’s access to the outdoors. America’s Great Outdoors was in the news recently when Interior Secretary Sally Jewell announced the launch of 21st Century Conservation Service Corps as part of the program. “21CSC,” as Jewell calls it, aims to be a modern incarnation of the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) that President Franklin Roosevelt used to help put Americans back to work during the Great Depression. Jewell

envisions a 100,000 person strong “CCC 2.0” that will provide opportunities for thousands of young Americans—6.7 million of whom are currently unemployed or not in school—and veterans transitioning back to civilian life to serve their country, feel proud of what they are accomplishing and improve their own lives and the lives of others around them. Part of what makes America’s Great Outdoors unique is that partners from every sector of American society—not just the federal government—are encouraged to help. 21CSC is partially funded by a $1 million dollar donation from clothing retailer American Eagle Outfitters, and Jewell is in search of another $19 million from other private sector partners to turn the program into a potent force for reducing youth and veteran unemployment while giving our endangered lands and waterways some much-needed attention. Environmentalists may be disappointed that the Obama administration hasn’t been able to muscle through mandatory greenhouse gas emissions cuts and put sustainability concerns at the forefront of the policymaking process, but getting unprecedented numbers of Americans involved in conservation projects that protect the nation’s treasured natural heritage is a worthy conservation legacy in its own right. The program is sure to positively impact generations of Americans for decades to come. CONTACTS: America’s

Supervisors Approve Extending Purchase of Agricultural Conservation Easement (PACE) Program The PACE program was initiated Aug. 3, 2011 as a part of the General Plan Update Implementation Plan. Under the PACE program,the County compensates willing agricultural property owners for placing a perpetual easement on their agricultural property that limits future uses and eliminates future subdivision potential. As a result, the agricultural land is preserved and the property owner receives compensation that can make its continued use for agriculture more viable. To date, the program has permanently protected 782 acres of ranch and farmland through the acquisition of agricultural conservation easements, exceeding the program’s original goal of protecting 500 acres. The Board of Supervisors received a report on the Pilot Phase of the County’s PACE Program Dec. 4, 2013 and voted unanimously to direct staff to pursue the acquisition of easements for the 16 remaining properties identifi ed during the Pilot Phase of the Program and to extend PACE into a permanent program. The Board also directed staff to prepare a mitigation component that will allow easement land acquired under the PACE program to be utilized as off-site mitigation for agricultural impacts resulting from private projects. For additional information on the PACE program, please contact Matt Schneider at matthew.schneider@sdcounty.ca.gov or 858-694-3714.

Home Of The Future Features Energy-Saving Devices (NAPS) — Keeping your home comfortable doesn’t have to mean costs that go through the roof. Here’s a look at some of the latest technology that can be seen in a model home designed to showcase energy effi ciency, The New American Home (TNAH), created by the National Association of Home Builders Leading Suppliers Council. TNAH 2014 uses green building and construction technology, including a solar water heater, photovoltaic panels and closed sprayfoam insulation. One of the more effective energy-saving components is also one of the least expensive: sealed electrical wall boxes. A problem for most homeowners is that the electrical boxes on exterior walls let drafts in. In response, electrical components manufacturer Thomas & Betts has come up with a clever way to eliminate this energy drain. The Carlon Draft-Tight boxes feature a gasketed front fl ange that provides a seal from the box to the back of the drywall and gaskets over cable entry points to prevent airflow from getting into the house. This saves heating costs in winter and cooling in the summer. It can also reduce construction costs. By eliminating the need to caulk or seal the boxes after installation, the builder can save about fi ve hours ofinstallation time for a 2,200-squarefoot house. The design is also available for ceiling boxes and multigang outlets, and can be put in already built homes as well as new ones. You can find these boxes at home improvement centers or talk to your electrician about having them installed. For further information on these energy-saving devices, go to www.tnb.com/receptacles.

The Julian News 13

The California Legislature reconvenes this week and the politicians may be on the verge of a major miscalculation because they don’t understand how real people think. The members of the political class in Washington and our state capitols are certain they know what Americans are thinking. Just ask them. After all, they read polls and this convinces them they know how we view Republicans and Democrats, liberals and conservatives, highprofile politicians and policy issues like “sequestration.” What they don’t understand is that most folks don’t spend much time thinking about any of these issues or politicians. The politicians might be surprised to learn that “quantitative easing” is not a popular topic of dinner table conversation. What real people care about is the welfare of their families, their jobs and their homes -- most folks spend a lot more time thinking about their favorite sports teams than they do about politics. Politics becomes important when it impacts their families, jobs or homes. When it gets personal, they start paying close attention. Look at Obamacare. When it was approved by Congress three years ago, for most people it was theoretical and it was not clear how it would affect them. After all, even then Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi famously admitted that members of Congress did not know what was in it. So it makes sense that average people refused to put a lot of time into thinking about something that even the powerful in government did not understand. Now that the health care plan has been rolled out with the result that over 6 million Americans have lost their health insurance, and it has been revealed that the president’s assurance that those who liked their current policy and doctor could keep them, was disingenuous at best, real people are seeing a real threat to their families. The public outrage meter is so high that it is in danger of bursting. Democratic Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia has warned this puts his party’s future control of the Senate in jeopardy and other members of the Washington, D.C. political class are admitting they may have miscalculated.

In Sacramento, where the Legislature returns to work this week, the politicians may be about to make a similar miscalculation. Last year Senate leader Darrell Steinberg announced that 2014 would be the year to examine Proposition 13, and this coming year may be the most dangerous yet for Proposition 13 and the taxpayers who depend on its protections. A number of anti-Proposition 13 bills are currently active in the Legislature. Especially threatening to homeowners is legislation that would make it easier to increase “per parcel taxes.” Parcel taxes are taxes on property, which under Proposition 13, require a two-thirds vote. The politicians want to lower the vote requirement, which could cost homeowners billions of dollars. It is possible that a half dozen anti-Proposition 13 bills will be rushed through at the end of the legislative session this summer and these constitutional amendments placed on the November 2014 ballot. It takes only a majority of voters to approve an amendment to the constitution and, while Proposition 13 remains extremely popular with the general public, millions of dollars will be spent by backers of higher taxes to portray these changes as increasing “local control” or as enabling “investment in the community.” However, proponents of dismantling Proposition 13 underestimate what will be the reaction when real people learn that their homes, jobs and families will be negatively impacted by the destruction of these taxpayer protections. It might best be summed up by the quote attributed to Isoroku Yamamoto, the commander of the Japanese forces that attacked Pearl Harbor: I fear all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant and fill him with a terrible resolve. Those who are not members of the political class, and want to understand more about these threats to Proposition 13, are invited to visit www.hjta.org.

• It was noted American writer and essayist Flannery O'Connor who made the following sage observation: "Truth does not change according to our ability to stomach it." • Even though the human brain makes up only 2 percent of the body's mass, it consumes 20 percent of the body's calories and oxygen. • The chief translator for the European Parliament is named Ioannis Ikonomou. He is fluent in 32 languages -- and still learning. • During World War I, the United States acquired its first "war dog." The pit bull was found wandering around Yale Field in New Haven, Conn., by soldiers in training. On particular soldier, Cpl. Robert Conroy, became close to the dog and refused to leave Stubby behind; when Conroy was shipped out, he hid the dog on board. Stubby served overseas for 18 months and saw action in 17 battles. On more than one occasion he sniffed out surprise attacks, saving his regiment. He was known for locating wounded soldiers on the field, and he even once caught a German spy. He was the most decorated dog of the Great War, and he was promoted to sergeant for his combat service -- the only dog to be so honored. After the war, Sgt. Stubby was hailed as a hero; he led parades and met three presidents. He even has his very own brick at the World War I Memorial. It reads, "Sergeant Stubby, Hero Dog of WWI, a Brave Stray." • Those who study such things say that couples in a romantic relationship actually have heart rates that are in sync with each other. • If you're like the average American, you drink 23 gallons of coffee every year, but only 9 gallons of tea. *** Thought for the Day: "Research is what I'm doing when I don't know what I'm doing." -- Wernher Von Braun

TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) This week favors what Taureans dote on -- namely, love and money. Look for more meaningful relationships for both singles and pairs, as well as an improved financial outlook. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) All lingering shreds of that recent bout with boredom are dissipated as you eagerly accept a challenging offer. Your positive mood persuades others to join you in this venture. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You might need validation for a possible solution to a situation involving someone close to you. Consider asking a trusted friend or relative to help you with this problem. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Investigate carefully before agreeing to assist a friend or colleague with a personal problem. There might be hidden factors that could emerge later that will create problems for you. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Your decision to work with an associate rather than go it alone, as you first proposed, brings an unexpected bonus. Be careful not to be judgmental. Allow for free and open discussion. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) A loved one's health problem could, once again, make demands on your time and attention. But this time, make

some demands of your own, and insist that others pitch in and help. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) This is a good time for the traditionally staid Scorpion to plan adjustments in your day-to-day schedules. Be more flexible and allow for more impromptu, off-the-cuff actions. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Avoid creating unnecessary fuss over a situation you don't approve of. If it's going to work, it will do so despite your objections. If it fails, it will do so without a push from you. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Working with a trusted colleague could open your mind to exploring some considerations you previously dismissed out of hand. The weekend brings news from a loved one. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Resolving a recent problem leaves you in a good position to strengthen your influence on how things get done. But continue to encourage ideas and suggestions from others. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) A new friend suggests an interesting opportunity. But check it out before you snap at it. It might be a good deal for some people, but it might not work in helping you reach your goals. BORN THIS WEEK: You have a way of helping people solve their problems, making you a mostrespected counselor and trusted friend.
