Proposed Solar Farm Rejected By Planning Group Monday, January 13 - Julian Town Hall - 7:00pm There was a full board present for the monthly meeting of the Julian Community Planning group. On a normal meeting night that would mean more people on the board than in the audience. This Monday evening that would not be the case, over fifty people filled the chairs downstairs in the town hall. Also in attendance were members of the media from the U-T and online publication East County Magazine as well as the Julian News. The focus of the evening was the application by Ecos Energy, a Minnesota-based solar company that specializes in building small commercial solar farms for an administrative permit to allow construction and operation of a one megawatt solar voltaic generating facility on 8.5 acres of land just east of Highway 78/79 off of Calico Ranch Road. With Kenny Mushet recusing himself from the issue due to a potential conflict (his family has land holdings near the proposed site) the other 10 members of the board and the 50 plus audience members listened as Brad Wilson from Ecos gave a 25 minute presentation with slides, about the company and the project. Mr. Wilson stated that the project was to generate power for approximately 650 homes, and that the power from the plant could essentially stay in the localized community. They had a contract with SDG&E to provide “renewable energy” for 20 years, helping SDG&E meet their state mandated goals for renewable power. The project should take only three to five months of construction, Mr. Wilson noted that their time-line was much faster than what an individual could expect should they wish to build a residence on the property. Making the point numerous times that the current application was not the final design, he went on to say that the project could use as little as three acres or up to seven acres of the 8.5 acre parcel. Addressing the issues of preparing the land - he stated that the initial studies indicated they would only be grading 9,000 cubic yards to prepare the property. Once completed the facility would have a security fence surrounding the property, possibly chain link, with infrared security cameras in place to observe the operation and discourage intruders. Once installed the panels would be maintained monthly or as needed by one or two

employees, who would check the system and primarily wash the panels - the water for the washing would be trucked in. Mr. Wilson stressed throughout his presentation that the plans where preliminary and open the community input, they just wanted to be good neighbors. The facility would not generate any noticeable noise, except a slight hum from the electrical panel. The tie-in to the power grid would be accomplished with an underground installation to the existing transmission line that runs through the valley, approximately 200 feet from their property line. No light pollution. They would landscape with a low/slow growth ground cover type vegetation, upgrade the road as required by the County and mitigate any biological destruction as required (currently the County requires 3 acres for every one acre used.) In closing he once again reminded the planning group(and the audience) that their plan was not “cast in stone” and only preliminary. After a brief presentation from the County Planning Department representative, explaining that scoping letter had been sent to Ecos identifying a number of issues which the company needed to address before they could move forward, and that the county time-line for a final decision was 12 months or more in the future. And that if the planning department did not grant approval the company did have an appeal process they could follow. Planning group chairman Jack Shelver then opened the meeting to the audience for 3 minute (per speaker) comments. Over 20 came forward to express their reservations, displeasure and direct opposition for the proposed solar farm. Although a number of the speakers did state that they appreciated the concept of trying to locate renewable energy in the area, they had a major problem with the idea of destroying natural oak forests in the process, locating in what was substantially a rural residential neighborhood, and their displeasure with a political climate that encourages this type of project over installation of solar power on residential roof tops. One suggestion went so far as suggest the company see if they could swap the land for some parking lots and thereby generate power, and shade cars at the same time. Other issues that the public brought forth included, the changes to the landsacpe and

the effects that would have on the wildlife of the area, the potential use of herbicides, the fact that the company had not properly identified the actual requirements of the project and specific plans had not been made to address many of the neighbors concerns. A few of the speakers questioned the companies process in selecting such a site for the project, they were rebuffed with “proprietary information” claims from Mr. Wilson After over 45 minutes of comments the Planning group began to discuss, and ask some questions. Pat Brown inquired about the various studies that would be required and if those would be shared with the JCPG. Katy Moretti wondered if the mitigation would be accomplished in the same “ecological zone” (ie somewhere in the neighborhood) . Finally chairman Shelver asked for a motion, wondering aloud if they really had enough facts to nake a final decission? Bob Redding moved to deny the application based on the project not being in line with the Julian Community Plan, loss of biological resources, an incomplete description of the projects scope, and the concerns of the constituents. It was seconded by Woody Barnes and then amended with the caveat that should more information become available the Planning Group would be willing to revisit the issue at a future date. The chair then called for a voice vote with all 10 members voting to approve the motion and deny the permit request. The Planning Groups decision is only advisory but with the out pouring of sentiment from the public it will be delivered to the Planning Commission with no question about what they should do. After a brief recess, the Planning Group got back to business as usual, approving reimbursements and reports from members. The difference being there was no one in the audience to see them finish up the evening business. Next meeting February 10, Town Hall. You might want to be there just in case.

Rick Hill Retuns From Cambodia age 7 P To Celebrate 10 Years At Hillside Church

Julian Eagles Athletics Basketball - Boys

Pastor Rick Hill from Hillside Church in front of Angkor Wat, estimated by some to be the largest religious monument in the world. Pastor Rick Hill just returned from a humanitarian/mission trip to Cambodia. Hillside Church professionals joined up with other doctors, nurses, dentists, and optometrists from Germany, Australia, Mexico, and other parts of America to provide much needed care in poor villages in 6 provinces in Cambodia. Hillside Church purchased 2/3 of an acre in a small village in the Kampong Chhnang Province. A well was dug to provide fresh water to the village. A small church structure was built for the village as well. Each clinic provided doctors/nurses, dental technicians, and eyecare specialists. The property is just over 2/3 of an acre, and a well was dug to provide fresh water for the village. The pastor here is planning to put up a coup to raise chickens, providing a small income for the church. He told me over 100 villagers come each Sunday to hear the Gospel. I'm proud to serve as lead pastor at Hillside. It is a church of vision and has a heart for the world!

Most of the work on the new E-1 building to this point has been subterranean, but in the past week crews have been preparing to “raise the walls.” The framing is laid out and ready on top of the new foundation.

By Bonnie Dumanis, San Diego County District Attorney

Leaders in the Assembly and Senate have introduced the Kindergarten Readiness Act (SB 837), which would expand and streamline our early education programs in order to more effectively serve young children in California. The legislation would provide at least one year of transitional kindergarten to all 4-year-olds; low-income children would be eligible for two years. The bill is certainly a step in the right direction. Children who participate in high-quality early education programs are much more likely to graduate from high school, which in turn, decreases their likelihood of criminal involvement. In fact, one study found that kids left out of one quality preschool program were 39% more likely to go to jail or prison than participating children from similar backgrounds. Unfortunately, the American Institute for Research estimates only 41% of eligible low-income 3- and 4-year-olds in San Diego County are enrolled in federal and state-funded preschool programs. And only a quarter of all 4-year-olds are currently eligible for transitional kindergarten. Researchers estimate that, if we could increase graduation rates by 10 percentage points, murders and assaults would fall by 20%. This could ultimately prevent 15 murders and more than 1,500 aggravated assaults in San Diego County each year, simply by graduating more students. Our current system leaves too many children failing in school, turning to crime, and winding up in prison - all at a huge cost to California taxpayers. According to Fight Crime: Invest in Kids, a research-based organization that I am proud to be a part of, increasing our investment in high-quality early education could save $1.1 billion per year by reducing the prison population by 13,000 prisoners. Economists estimate that every dollar invested in early education provides up to $16 in benefits overall, not only in reduced crime but from reduced use of special education, increased graduation rates, higher income levels, and the resulting increase in tax revenues. All of this research confirms what we’ve learned from

experience: the earlier we intervene, the better off our children will fare in the long run. Instead of relying just on arrests and incarceration, we need to focus upstream and help create early learners who take pride in becoming strong students. 2014 is poised to be a momentous year for early childhood education – both at the state and federal levels. In California, early education for all 4-year-olds will lead more kids to success in school, increase high school graduation rates, and save taxpayers millions of dollars for years to come. The path is clear: investing in early childhood education is the safest, most secure path towards the future.

Postal Increases Coming Following is a summary of some of the Postal increases likely to affect small businesses. Letters and Postcards Regular 1st class letter stamps, such as the Forever stamp, will increase from 46 to 49 cents. A single stamp covers a one ounce letter (typically 4 to 5 sheets of paper plus an envelope). Additional ounces will cost a penny more, at 21 cents each. Postcard rates also go up a penny, to 34 cents. Bulk mail rates and the cost of mailing periodicals such as magazines, will go up by 6%. Packages Packages will see a number of increases: First class package rate (used for domestic mail up to 13 ounces) goes up an average of 5%. For instance, there’s a flat rate for the first 3 ounce, and it goes up 24 cents, to $1.93. Media mail rate (used for books, DVDs and CDs) goes up an average of 6.3%. Most flat rate Priority remains the same. One exception is the large flat rate box, which goes up 60 cents. Priority Express (formerly called Express mail) will increase on average 3%. There will also be a new option for 10:30 am delivery, costing an extra $5 — so if it absolutely must get there by the morning, you now have this option as long as you are willing to pay extra. In a few sizes, Priority Express package rates and Priority Regional box rates may actually go down slightly. But taken as a whole, the rates are increasing. The rates for packages are complex. has a good series of charts showing various increases and decreases. Back in September the Postal Service requested the rate hikes as “exigent” (emergency) continued on page 8

Julian Youth Baseball And Softball, With Your Help

Warner Springs FFA Dinner and Auction Fundraiser

Would you consider supporting the kids and families of Julian and outlining areas with a business sponsorship to Julian Youth Baseball? Julian Youth Baseball is a non-profit organization that runs Little League Baseball & Little League Softball. A donation or sponsorship is tax deductable and you can designate you funds to benefit baseball or softball or both. Unfortunately ASA Softball was unable to continue in Julian. Julian Youth Baseball would like to offer Softball to the Julian community as we feel there are kids who would like to benefit from a Softball program in Julian. We will be registering kids for their choice, softball or baseball for the 2013 Little League season. We’ll again use Jess Martin Park for practices and games. Some Softball practices will be at the Julian Junior High, but all games we plan to play at Jess Martin Park as a consideration for parents who have kids playing both sports at the same time. We continue to offer player registration fees at our cost, and are continuing last year’s successful scholarship program so that every kid that wants to play can play. Youth baseball is an important part of the overall health and vibrancy of a community, and business sponsorships are an important part of Julian Youth Baseball funding. Your sponsorship helps pay for scholarships for children in financial need, equipment and uniforms, umpire fees, and other costs associated with running a successful baseball program. This year’s levels are: League Sponsor: $1,500 Intended for larger and regional firms doing business with Julian area customers, League Sponsors get a large banner on the backstop of one of the Jess Martin Park fields, a plaque, a large ad in the 2010 Julian Youth Baseball Program, and top acknowledgement in the local paper. Team Sponsor: $500 Team Sponsors get their business’ name on the back of a team’s player and coach shirts, a sign in one of the playing fields, a plaque, a mid-sized ad in the 2010 Julian Youth Baseball Program, and high-level acknowledgement in the local paper.

Scholarship Sponsor: Increments of $75 Scholarship Sponsors fund registration for kids whose families have financial need. $70 funds one player, $140 two, etc. Scholarship Sponsors receive a framed certificate, a businesscard-sized ad in the 2010 Julian Youth Baseball Program, and acknowledgement in the local paper. Community Sponsor: $10 Intended for businesses that want to be part of Julian Youth Baseball but find budgets a bit tight, Community Sponsors get a business-card-sized ad in the 2009 Julian Youth Baseball Program, and acknowledgement in the local paper.

Please consider mailing a check (made out to “Julian Youth Baseball”) to our address above, or calling me with questions or to discuss. Thank you! Sincerely, Nicolle Sheppard, Information Officer, Julian Youth Baseball 760-877-1528 | *** Silence becomes cowardice when occasion demands speaking out the whole truth and acting accordingly. — Mohandas Gandhi ***

A packed house at the RoundUp at Lake Henshaw Warner Springs FFA dinner and auction was a huge success in raising money for our FFA chapter. Each year we’ve held an auction at our high school, but this year, it’s been a revolutionary year. As a result we turned our normal auction into a dinner, auction, and entertainment evening. The purpose of this event was to raise money to create more opportunities for our members to attend FFA conferences, field days, leadership development workshops, farm projects, and maintain our school farm and shop. The most important part of this event was to give the people of our community a small glimpse of what our FFA chapter is all about, therefore we were extremely shocked, excited, and grateful to have a standing room only event where 125 people were served an amazingly delicious dinner by The Round Up Grill at Lake Henshaw. We are very appreciative for the grill’s staff as they did an awesome job cooking & serving throughout the night. The evening was filled with many smiling people as they enjoyed their dinner and music by the great “Natural Selection” band. Thanks to their music, the people were in the mood to spend money to support us. Then, the smiling continued with cheer as agriculture teacher and auctioneer Brian Kanter from Jurupa Valley auctioned 15 awesome items with the highest item, the Wild Pig Hunt, going for $900 dollars. Once the live auction ended, the people continued their enjoying the evening with the silent auction and prize giveaway with their dinner ticket. As some of you read in a previous article, FFA is not just about cows and plows, agriculture and farming, it is also about premier leadership, career success, and personal growth. FFA and agriculture education creates a close environment that connects us to each other as it is what makes us who we are. For without agriculture, you’d be naked and hungry. We can be like a great big family as was seen with 6 other vocational/agriculture teachers coming together to support Mrs. Cozens with her first grand event for Warner Springs FFA. Warner Springs FFA is extremely happy with the results of all their hard work as it paid off with a successful fundraiser and it is all thanks to those of you that contributed with your attendance and donations. We’d like to say, “Thank you very much for all your contributions and support as it led this fundraiser into raising over $6,000!” “We look forward in making this an annual event and we hope you look forward to it as well!

Gizmo suffered from two broken bones in his left leg near his ankle, puncture wounds in his right shoulder that required stitches & the trauma of the incident. Gizmo weighs 3 lbs. Once he has surgery, Gizmo needs to be in a long-term cast for 6-10 months. Operation is tentatively scheduled for February 11th. Up until he has the surgery, the splint on his leg needs to be changed bi-weekly at $122 each visit. The cost of the operation is $2500.00 with $1500.00 needed prior to surgery.

Anne Garcia will give a talk on “Framing To Enhance Your Pictures” at 6:00 p.m. on Tuesday, January 28, in the Community Room at the Julian Library. Anne, a Julian resident and well known to many in the community both through her art related activities and the Methodist Church, began framing professionally for artist Joe Garcia in 1989. She trained on the job, taking several courses and workshops from the Professional Picture Framers Association. She has provided framing for various organizations including the Volcan Mountain Foundation, San Diego Zoo, Ducks Unlimited and the Escondido Historical Society, as well as for a large private clientele. Anne realized as she became involved in their art business that professional quality equipment was a key factor in producing framing worthy of her clients’ expectations and to make the process as efficient as possible. The investment has paid off over the years as she built her reputation for fine art framing. Whether a watercolor or oil painting, a textile or object, Anne believes that art is complete when surrounded by framing that properly enhances and conserves the overall presentation. As well as a talented framer, Anne is a fine art photographer in her own right. She will talk about approaches and techniques, the difference between framing photographs, prints, watercolors and art, the best way to choose frames, and when to use archival materials. The public is invited and the lecture is free. It is sponsored by the Julian Arts Guild and is part of a monthly series of lectures and art demonstrations for the Julian community.

Melanie Devaney is not afraid to speak with her heart, which isn't suprising considering its history. When she was just four, doctors discovered a small hole and she underwent surgery to repair it. This poignant event at such a young age, which involved taking her heart out of her body, made her aware of the importance of living life to it fullest and making powerful observations about it. These perceptions have materialized in a collection of songs that imply not only life's brevity, but also its twisted ironies. She was born and raised small town of Epworth, Iowa, which today has a population of 1,500. Despite her love of Iowa's pastoral scenery and honest, hard-working people, Melanie has a wide sense of adventure that resulted in her current residence on the West Coast. She travels extensively throughout the year entertaining a wide-array of audiences - from honky-tonk cowboys in Wyoming and Arizona to sophisticated wine drinkers in California. Always in search of great songwriting material, Melanie isn't known for staying too long in one place and you never know where she'll wind up next! Friday night she’ll be in Wynola from six to nine, come out and discover someone new.

*** Some prices are just too high, no matter how much you may want the prize. The one thing you can't trade for your heart's desire is your heart. — Lois McMaster Bujold ***

Dane Terry is earning a reputation around San Diego's live music scene as a versatile utility player as well as a Bandleader. His range is surprising; on any given night you might see him leading one of his own bands such as Champions or Cadillac Wreckers, or you may hear him with Traditional music favorite Chris Clarke, local Blues maven Chickenbone Slim, or the rocking Voice of Leo band. If you've been to the annual Spring Harp-Fest in any of the last 10 years, you probably saw him there. Or perhaps you've heard him with his novelty band The Stillmores, or Folk musician Allen Singer or Bluesman Robin Henkel. Or you might have seen him with The Little Kings of San Diego, Country-music bad boys The Sickstring Outlaws, or San Diego's Jack City Blues Band. Wherever you find him, you'll hear a refreshing, unique approach: Traditional music heavily influenced by the Blues, Jazz, Gospel Soul, and Country music he grew up on. His 'from the heart' instrumental style and smooth soulful vocals are sure to please. Saturday night, Dane will bring some special surprise guests to Wynola Pizza Express for a unique show of Neo-Traditional American music. Upcoming Wynola Pizza & Bistro Shows:

Thursdays From 5 to 8 - Open Mic Night Friday, January 31 - Sunny Side Strings Saturday, February 1 - Grass

My Thoughts Aging Through The Years

When I originally started this self-imposed writing assignment last summer I mentioned to Mike that I wanted to call the article, "Real Estate Realities - These are My Thoughts Too". Mike however objected, stating that I would only upset two more people in town. Realizing this I agreed to never mention the title again and came up with a new idea. Entering into my 28th year as an Appraiser I have experienced what I like to think of as "The Good, The Bad and The Ugly". The “Good” or best parts of this vocation are not always what you might expect. Certainly among the best parts of the job are meeting a diverse range of people. Whether they be old, young, extremely wealthy or highly impoverished, people surprise you with their stories and their lives. Never judge a book by its cover and never judge a person’s character by their home. For me being self-employed in this career, where solitary travel is such a large part of what I do, the best part of my day is sharing it at times with those I love. Over the years I have taken my Father, Sister, Kids and Best Friend along on road trips with me to see some unique and interesting properties. Sometimes I even make them drive, or as my son Micah likes to do, ride "Shotgun" (with a 12 gauge Remington 870 being his fire-arm of choice). The bad parts of the career are always the same. Failing to provide the best possible service. Making an error. Completing an assignment for a friend, a local maybe, in which the value, due to a decline in the market, will not be sufficient to realize a loan. The worst of it though is the feeling I get when seeing a family "packed", readying themselves for an eviction, the result of a foreclosure or short-sale. Two years ago I was in El Centro, just days before Christmas. The home was in disarray with more children present than I could remember, no tree, no presents, only the look of despair on the parent’s faces. I’d like to say that was an isolated case but the fact is, it wasn’t. It is then when you realize the value of your home. The ugly of course is easy. It is my driving. I have backed into, run over, side-swiped and high-centered more objects than I can recall. Primarily this is the result of inspecting a disproportionate number of homes located on streets ending in “Truck Trail”. That coupled with the fact that I imagine my Honda is a Hummer and the belief that while traveling these “roads” my mantras “I Can Make It!” and “Plenty of Room” prove false more than they should. With that said I will cover the last few areas of valuation that may be of value. Highest and Best Use: A key, if not the key, to maximizing value is to understand the principle of Highest and Best Use (HBU). In my experience most properties fall short in this area (including my own). There are four components of HBU which an appraiser must consider, as should any property owner. They are: Legally Permissible, Physically Possible, Financially Feasible and Maximally Productive. It is the final point, Maximally Productive, where I tend to focus as Income or better yet, Net Income relates directly to value - at least according to my friend IRV. Most properties fall short of Income Maximization for one reason or another. In Julian, unlike many suburban markets, one can create additional income, i.e. value, from such sources as agricultural production, storage and/or ancillary units. Consider that rent on a small studio unit typically starts around $600/month, large storage units around $100/month and agricultural land, while varying, can be sublet to any number of local growers. The point being is that unless your property is taking advantage of these potential sources of income (assuming your property can) they are, in theory, falling short of their full value. Because small sources of income may be ideal for property maintenance, improvements or debt retirement they should be considered when looking to optimize value. Conformity: If you own a Log Cabin, Geodesic Dome or Straw Bale home you likely have encountered issues during the refinance or sale of your home. That is because Lenders prefer homogeneity. This is one reason Otay Ranch rarely experiences issues with comparable selection. Most homes, whether built by Pardee, McMillan etc… are relatively similar in style and size. They are often controlled by Master Plans and CC&R’s. Picking up and individual site in Otay Ranch and building your custom dream home is generally not an option. In Julian no two homes are the same. The lack of conformity noted in the aforementioned homes styles above often results in strict lender scrutiny. As a rule, lenders want to see one, if not more, comparable sales of like model homes. If you own a Straw Bale home - good luck. Finding a comparable Straw Bale home is a bit like finding a needle in a haystack (pun intended). That is not to say I do not appreciate and see value in these structures – I do. Some of James Hubbell’s designs are among the most fascinating I have seen. Loan underwriters however do not always agree with me and therein lies the rub. The problem appears to be growing. It not only applies to Log Homes, Domes and Straw Bale homes, increasingly it has been applied to conventionally framed or stick built homes. An example is an appraisal I completed for a local homeowner named Jack (not his real name). Jack is a retired contractor who designed and constructed what could best be described as a “Custom Craftsman Cabin”. The home is replete with native lumber salvaged from the Cedar Fire. Floors, ceilings, cabinets, vanities, trim – you name it – were custom crafted and of the highest quality I have seen. Unfortunately they did not say “The Home Depot” and the underwriter questioned everything from the hand laid flooring to the custom built kitchen cabinets. To an underwriter the home did not conform. The result was months of alterations, explanations and negotiations with the lender. In the end they acquiesced but not after a battle. The point here is that if you intend to “build outside the box” be prepared for questions and delays. continued on page 9

When we are in our late teens and early 20s we feel immortal. I remember thinking I couldn’t get physically harmed, until I was. I remember thinking no one could hurt me psychologically, until someone did. I was in my early 20s and I bounced back, mostly. I don’t have any tests or data to back me up, but I think that many of the motorcycle fatalities we see here in the mountains could be military men who manage to survive war. They come home wanting and maybe needing the freedom of riding a motorcycle capable of high speed and quick maneuvering, until it isn’t. That’s when the motorcyclists do things that get them killed like passing on blind curves or taking curves too wide and sliding down on the dirt and sand covered shoulders of our mountain roads. They get into horrible accidents and become splats on the roadway just like bugs on a windshield. When we are in our 30s we find out that losing weight isn’t anywhere near as easy as it was when we were in our 20s. Many of us spend so many hours doing grown up things like working full time and we don’t give ourselves enough time to exercise or to do other things that are good for us, like planning our financial futures. If we attended college, we probably finished by now. If we didn’t attend college for the past 8 to 10 years, we have been earning a living for quite a few years. If we haven’t worked regularly, we may be occasionally wondering what will become of us, but it’s early, so we probably aren’t putting much thought to our futures. However, turning 30 was my way of feeling really grown up. No maybes. I was an adult for sure once I turned 30. In my youth buying a house was much easier, so I did. Used cars that ran well were easier to find and to buy and they were easier to work on at home, so I did, making them a lot less expensive over all. Not true these days. When I open the hood of a nearly new car I cringe at the cost of future repairs. When we turn 40, our bodies begin to soften. My aunt warned me and she was so right. I’m not a person who walks into a gym. I don’t remember ever saying in earnest, “No pain, no gain.” For many years my main form of exercise was from hanging laundry, remodeling the interior of my house and growing my own vegetables. I also built a chicken coop and more than a few rock walls. None of these accomplishments turned me into a hard body. At 40 I became a forever soft body. When we are in our 50s, parts of our bodies begin to head south. This is another thing that my aunt warned me about. My mother died when I was 36, so she and I didn’t have these talks. Thank goodness my aunt warned me so I wouldn’t be surprised or horrified when my body parts began heading south. They also began to stiffen slightly and not very noticeably for a few years. I’m grateful that I began going to a chiropractor when I was in my early 30s and I still go occasionally. Chiropractors and M.D.s approach health a little differently. One is no substitute for the other. However, when I complete getting a Chiropractic treatment, my whole body seems to flow internally. When we turn 60, many of us wonder how healthy we could be if we had taken better care of ourselves. I’m 63 years old and I have no regrets. I have friends who participate in fund raising runs and walks. I have a few friends who have hiked The Appalachian Trail and even a few who hike the Pacific Rim trail. Not for me these wonderful exercise programs. I have a list of health issues that keep me from hikes, walks and running. As I age into my mid-60s, I feel a kind of freedom. As one of my friends once told me, “Once you get to 60, delegate.” I have grown sons who are very good at helping me with chores that are easier for them to complete than they are for me. For example, I used to patch leaky spots on our roof around our chimney. Now I ask my boys to do it. I love delegating. I haven’t made it to 70 years yet, though I hope to in time. My mother lived just past her 67th birthday, my father died in The Korean War. He was 32. Mom’s parents lived to be 89 and 92 and my Dad’s parents lived to be 61 and 79. Putting environment and lifestyle aside; I have no idea how long I expect to live. When the First Lady of the American Theater, actress Helen Hayes celebrated her 80th birthday, she proudly said that she intended to be ornery and knew it was expected of her. I like her attitude. I’m a little bit ornerier than I was a few years ago and I may get ornerier yet as my years accumulate. One of my sons recently remarked to the other that their mom, me, is getting feisty. The other said, “Yep.” Though I strive to continue being a kind person, sometimes I throw verbal zingers at people. That way they don’t take me for granted. Each decade we change. A doctor once told me that our bodies change every ten years. We may gain allergies or we may quit being allergic to some things. If we are lucky, we grow mentally and emotionally but not so much physically. When my uncle turned 85 he renewed his driver’s license for 5 years. I congratulated him and he told me that he wasn’t sure it was a good idea. However, I can confirm that he continued to be a very good driver. As a cautious driver, he stayed off freeways and really fast roads. When my uncle celebrated his 92nd birthday, I asked how he felt about turning 92. He told me that he wasn’t sure that he liked it. I liked knowing that his mind continued to be sharp. In my family we have been very fortunate to have good working brains to the end of our lives. As we age, our bodies and our minds change. Sometimes the changes are abrupt and sometimes they are gradual. Some changes are sneaky like my mom getting arthritis in her knee and ankle 40 years after a major leg injury. I’m glad to be here and as one of my shop customers once told me, “I’m vertical, I’m smiling and I’m able to take in nutrition. It’s a great day.” These are also my thoughts.

*** A different world cannot be built by indifferent people. ***


— Peter Marshall

by Kiki Skagen Munshi

What’s With The Power? The subject of this week’s column remained elusive until SDG&E helped out by going out. Just before the morning coffee started perking. The first look on the (battery powered) laptop said the power, which affects, basically, the Greater Julian Area, would be out until 9:00; this was changed in short order until 12:30 p.m. Cause unknown. Probably retribution for the Planning Board decision Monday night to recommend (provisionally) that Ecos Solar not be given a go ahead for its plan to make money by bulldozing oak trees, blasting boulders and leveling hillsides to put solar power on 8.5 Wynola acres. If it wasn’t retribution, and of course they will say it wasn’t, it was certainly timely. And the second power outage we’ve had recently for no clear reason. The first lasted for nearly 8 hours. In the absence of light until the sun rose, we fooled around on the internet and found this picture of Thomas Melone’s house on the internet. Identified under the picture as President of Allco Renewable Energy which seems to be the parent company of Ecos Renewable Energy, the perpetrator along with SDG&E/Sempra of the Wynola destruction, it’s pleasing to see that he has solar panels on his modest little mansion. It’s a shame that solar panels can’t be put on our mansions here in Julian and power sold back to SDG&E the way it’s done in Germany and a number of other European countries. But then, how would the top executives at private companies like Allco and Sempra Energy support their houses? Hell hath no fury like a columnist without morning coffee. Fortunately we have a generator. Otherwise we would have written a strong column about the way electricity is sold for profit in this country.

Ancient Greek physician Hippocrates (known as the father of Western medicine) once said, “Walking is man’s best medicine.” What a relatively simple and inexpensive pill to take to make such a big impact on maintaining and improving your health. The inspiration for my renewed interest in walking is Sheri Simson,

aka “The Pole Lady.” Pole walking is an exercise where you walk with two poles that look like ski poles. It’s a low-impact exercise that not only makes walking more beneficial, it actually takes less effort and is easier on the body. I have joint pain, so walking is just about the only exercise that I can effectively do. Walking with Simson’s Keenfit Walking Poles boosts the benefits of my exercise. It basically turns a simple walk around the block into an aerobic total body workout. Pole walking is a rhythmic, energizing form of exercise that uses a specially designed pair of walking poles that helps you (with less effort) use your entire body rather than just your lower body. It’s like skiing without the skis or the snow. I like to call it “Texas skiing”! Pole walking originated from the sport of cross-country skiing. It’s believed to have started around the 1930s, when the cross-country ski coaches of Finland were struggling

to keep their athletes in peak form during the offseason. It soon became popular with non-athletes once they discovered the total-body benefits and the overall fun of pole walking, and it spread throughout Northern Europe. Pole walking, also known as Nordic walking, has only recently

Blood Drive On Saturday February 8th from 9 A.M. to 2 P.M., Julian community members can save a life...that’s YOU! Julian High School’s Community Service Club is hosting another blood drive, and with a short visit, you can leave knowing your blood is going to help someone who needs it. Did you know that every two seconds, someone in the United States needs blood? That means 41,000 blood donations are needed every day. The question is, are we meeting that quota? I can guarantee you that if you donate, you will be the difference in someone’s life, and with your donation we can literally supply someone with life. Think of it like this, your blood is donated to the mobile blood bank, of which later travels to a hospital to shelve your blood. When a patient is wheeled in needing a blood transfusion with your blood type, a nurse or doctor will pick up your bag and connect it to the one in need. They may be anyone; a child with cancer performing their regular visit to the hospital for Chemo treatment, or a 34 year old woman who had just recently been in a car accident. The fact is, they need blood, and your donation is supplying them. When your blood enters their veins, a small portion of your life gives them life. Your donation saves them for another day. So whether it was the child with cancer or the woman in the car crash, the matter at hand was the fact that one day someone in Julian decided to do something brave, and meaningful. Someone drove to Julian High School’s parking lot, visited the mobile blood bank, and took the time to think about someone else who needs their help. The difference in your donation is precisely two seconds. Two seconds that no longer exists in the world, because your blood supplied that person with a second chance at life. Guess what? If you donate on February 8th, our country will no longer need 41,000 blood donations only 40,999, because you changed that statistic. You changed someone’s world forever.

Who Is A Better Superhero For Julian: Superman Or Batman? A Real Hero has No Powers

by Anonymous

Billionaire by day, hero by night. Bruce Wayne, also known as Batman, doesn’t actually have any superhuman powers. However, he is still considered a hero. Why? How can one man save an entire city? Money, and lots of it. Bruce Wayne inherited his father’s 6.5 billion dollar company at Wayne Enterprise, and used his overflowing wallet to buy citizens safety. Personally, I would feel fully insured if Batman were the hero in Julian. Firstly, he’s loaded. I don’t think Julian citizens will have to worry about that dangerous pothole in the road, or the scary mountain lion in the woods, because Wayne is bound to be on top of things. A simple fill here, and BAM !That pothole is no match for Batman. A little steak here (cleverly placed a few miles out of town where no hiker would possibly want to hike) and...KAPOW! The people of Julian are saved from the ferocious kittycat! Those aren’t even our greatest fears here. That would be the wildfires. Batman would surely form a coalition with our local firefighters to fight off his arch enemy, the Flame Thrower. Together, Batman and our own local heroes can fight the foe that threatens our houses, and save the entire town. Julian would be invisible. So he has the money, but he’s also got heart. He doesn’t have superpowers, but he has a heart that could win first prize in a good samaritan contest. He is the most noblest of heros. He is not immortal, he bleeds like us, gets hurt sometimes, and yet he still stands to save the day. Plus, Batman doesn’t kill. He faces his enemies, the ones that would kill him, and scares them with his incredible ninja skills, only temporarily knocking them out in the hopes they wouldn't want to feel his punch again. He feels it as an immoral thing to kill people who may still have good in them. Batman is the only superhero who gives them a second chance. Batman is the obvious choice for our town. He can secure our city financially, and instill moral goodness into the small children who look up to him. Yes, he’s a great hero, but honestly, I don’t think Julian even needs a hero. Even though Batman is really cool, we already have heros here. Teachers, firefighters, sheriffs, council members, doctors, veterinarians, and our people: the strongest heroes of them all. Together, we are the heros of Julian. Together, we already fight for justice, and win.

It’s No Bird, Not Even a Plane

Superman is one of the most famous superheroes, and his costume is most memorable. Anyone can pick him out from a crowd, red cape and blue spandex. He is the strongest man alive, and has unique powers that can vanquish all enemies in his way. Superman is a one man show who can do it all. His powers and lack of weakness is just what Julian needs. This Man of Steel, would be Julian’s perfect protector. The air in Julian is so crisp and fresh, perfect breathing conditions for a super flying, instantaneous speed seeking, heat vision built, invulnerable superhero. Superman would be at his best state here, and at a higher altitude, Clark Kent can warm all the citizens in Julian. No need to build a fire again! Just think about it. Your cold and tired, there’s snow on the ground, and you had a long day at work... Don’t worry! Superman is here! With a quick flash, he’s there in a split second. Using his heat vision powers, he sparks a flame in your fireplace...POW! Instant warmth! Oh, but what is this? Another cry for help? He’s already on his way! His cape flies in the wind as he lands to take on his next foe...the terrible, and utterly cruel litterbug! Superman has one weakness...Kryptonite. But look on the bright side, Julian has no Kryptonite, nery in sight! Once again, Superman can’t be beat. Not only can he live in Julian fighting off crime, but he can live here happily with his wife Lois. He’s super, and a family man. I’d say superman would bring Julian the right kind of publicity. He’s a married man, believes in love, and would be a great attraction in Julian. How about that? A celebrity that can not only save our town, but bring in revenue! Superman could live out his days with Lois in Julian while bringing peace to the people. He is the man. He is the one and only. He is Superman. He is Julian’s Man. Clear cut powers, good standards, defined features, Clark Kent has it all. The best fit for Julian? I think yes! Superman is the only superhero who can fly so fast as to change the world’s rotation (if need be), and he would definitely keep Julian safe! That’s what matters most, our safety! The next time we look in the sky, I bet he’d be there!

Annual Senior Auction It’s that time of year again. The traditional auction at Julian High School features many new items to be sold! That’s right folks, on Saturday - February 1, in the high school multipurpose room, the 24th annual auction will take place with both a silent auction and live auction. The silent auction is first, starting at 5:30 P.M. going till 6:30 P.M. Make sure your bid wins! The live auction begins at 7:00 P.M., and this portion will be very exciting. Several items will be on display for your browsing, and you may take home a great deal! Make sure you bring your pocketbooks and Julian Pride, because all proceeds go towards the Senior Class of 2014. This year’s class trip is to Disneyland’s Grad Night and Six Flags! The Seniors are very excited to attend, but we need your help! Please, come on down to a night full of fun, and support your sons and daughters, grandsons and granddaughters, friends and school mates! There will be a large variety of items from gift baskets and gift cards to vacation getaways! But hurry, because it’s for one night only, and items will go fast! Your support would be greatly commemorated, and we can’t wait for your attendance! A huge thank you to all businesses who donated this year’s auction items, we appreciate your generosity towards our school. Your kindness is much obliged.

Senior/Junior Breakfast

by Lanae Cranfield

On Sunday February 2, 2014 the Seniors and the Juniors will be hosting a breakfast at the American Legion! The time is from 7 to 11:30, and tickets are $10. The Senior class will be using part of the proceeds to pay for senior activities such as Grad Nite, the Senior Trip, and the Senior Gift. The Junior class will be using the other part of the proceeds to help pay for the Jr/Sr Prom coming up at the end of this school year. Please come and support the upperclassmen on February 2nd! (Yes, it is Superbowl Sunday, but think...this way you won't have to make breakfast; you can focus on your Superbowl feast!) Hope to see you there!

A small percent of the population in the western world has a developed an all left dominance. A greater percent of the population has a developed mixed dominance but the majority of the population has developed a right dominance between eye, hand, and foot. Statistics have proven that the left and mixed dominant populations have greater challenges to overcome in the existing educational paradigm. Thus they will benefit from early identification i.e., before 1st Grade. I have developed many motor skill exercises to help the struggling leftie and mixed dominant population of students. These exercises help them to overcome the extra challenges that they face in their every day effort to keep pace with their right handed friends. To experience a 'lefties' world take note of where a doorknob is placed: a right hander will place it on the left and a left hander will place it on the right; try cutting with scissors in the left hand; try opening a jar with your left hand on the lid and your right holding the jar or putting a nail in the wall with the hammer in your left hand or tying shoelaces with the left hand leading the right. I could go on and on such as try putting the keys in the car with your left hand or listening to directions like turn left then right let alone directions such as turn to the north, west, south or east. Try reading a map from the right to the left or putting the keys in the ignition with your left hand. Statistics prove that a leftie' is more accident prone than a `rightie'; suffers more stress; and needs special understanding with more coaching from parents and teachers at an early age. Because of all these challenges facing them,' Lefties' and the mixed dominant populations can feel confused by life's demands or even fall through the cracks in the educational process and become mislabeled thus losing their potential. There are many lefties, mixed dominants, and ambidextrous people who have made great contributions to society through personal struggles and self-sacrifice. Their names are well-known: Michelangelo, Babe Ruth, Thomas Edison, Sandy Koufax, Leonardo da la Vinci, Publo Picasso, Paul McCartney, Jimi Hendrix, Cole Porter, Julius Caesar, Alexander the Great. However, identification of their unique development at an early age could have lessened their personal struggles with themselves and with society. To know your child's developmental picture is a key to understanding how to better know your child and eliminate many of his or her personal struggles in life thus opening an easier pathway to his or her success.

The Becket Fund for Religious Liberty announced the recipient of its lowest honor, the Ebenezer Award, “which is given annually to the most ridiculous affront to Christmas or Hanukkah celebrations.” And the winner is a four way tie. 1. School districts in Wisconsin and New Jersey were accused of “canceling Christmas” when they threatened to limit or outright ban religious songs at winter concerts. 1. The U.S. Navy removed Nativity scenes from Guantanamo Bay’s dining halls after some troops said they improperly promoted Christianity above other faiths. 1.

Did Jesus go to hell between the time of his death and the resurrection? This idea is promoted mostly by word of faith teachers. There is a long, and short answer to the question. I’ll offer you the short version. No! When Jesus hung on the cross between two thieves, He told one of them, “Today, you will be with Me in paradise.” [Luke 23:43] Simply put, if the thief was with Jesus in paradise, He could not be in hell, unless you think they are one and the same place.

Postage Rates continued from page 2

increases needed to make up for losses due to the Great Recession of 2008-2009. The Postal Regulatory Commission, which has oversight, approved the changes in a 2 to 1 split decision, but refused to make them permanent. However, it’s not clear how long “temporary” will be. Any mailings up through January 25th will be at the old rates. What can you do to save money on 2014 postage? Many small businesses have already moved toward electronic communications. Electronic invoicing, direct payroll deposit, electronic bill payment, email marketing instead of printed mailers, and other techniques cut down on paper and attendant postage costs. But electronic is not always feasible. Here are a few other techniques to consider, in order to guard your bottom line. While not always big savings, they may help a bit: Stock up on Forever stamps, if you mostly do onesy-twosy mailings. The Forever stamp will be good for a 1st class letter, no matter what you paid for it or when you use it. Example: if you purchased 5,000 Forever stamps before the rate hike kicks in (at a cost of $2,450) you’d save $150. Use a postage meter or online postage. The changes include a new category, called the “FirstClass Meter.” You get a onecent discount off the single-piece rate for all First-Class letters, up to 3.5 ounces. That equates to a

2% savings. But you must use a postage meter, online postage or a commercial mailing permit. Adjust your shipping and handling costs to recoup the rate hikes from end customers, if you are an e-commerce seller. Make sure shipping calculators take the increases into account, especially on heavier packages where costs really add up.

Pedal Cars Q: I began searching for older pedal cars about 10 years ago, and so far have managed to find three that I purchased. I had a pedal car as a child and am wondering if you can suggest a collector I can contact, since I have some restoration work I need done? -- Sam, Broken Arrow, Okla. A: Ron Hughes is owner of Soda Pops in Miami, Ariz., a shop that specializes in gas pumps, signage and jukeboxes. He has more than 50 pedal cars in his inventory, and he can help you. His addresses are 505 Sullivan St., Miami, AZ 85539; and *** Q: While cleaning out my grandmother's home, my sister and I found a kitchen gadget that has us stumped. I am enclosing a picture and hope you can identify it for us. -- Kathy, Los Ranchos, N.M. A: I, too, was stumped by your gadget. After searching through several reference books, I can now identify it as a "pie lifter." It was used to lift pies out of a hot oven. These are fairly rare and generally sell in the $50 to $150 range, depending on manufacturer and rarity. *** Q: I have several dozen Hummel figurines, and I need you to recommend a good price

guide that you trust. -- Betty, Pueblo, Colo. A: There are at least a dozen price guides. Some good, some not so good. One of the better ones, I think, is "The Official M.J. Hummel Price Guide: Figurines & Plates" by Heidi Ann Von Recklinghausen. Published by Krause Books and in its second edition, this guide is comprehensive and reflects current values. With more than 2,000 images in full color, and updated listings, this one is highly recommended. *** Q: I have a "Bozo Under the Sea" record set, which I received for my birthday during the early 1950s. What do you think it is worth? -- Charlie, Homestead, Fla. A: I have seen the 78-rpm set sell in the $14 to $25 range, depending on the dealer and the condition of the recordings. "Bozo at the Circus," even more popular, sells for about the same. *** Write to Larry Cox in care of King Features Weekly Service, P.O.

Contributory Value: Among the most often heard words from a homeowner is a breakdown of what has been spent on their property. “$65,000 on a kitchen remodel, $20,000 on a new deck, $35,000 on a solar array”, etc. etc. What is important to note is that Cost may not equal Value. In the previous example the question becomes, what does an item, say Jacks’ handcrafted plank floors, contribute to the overall market value of the home. While somewhat complicated and time consuming to explain one can easily see that the time and hourly rate of a detailed professional finish carpenter, coupled with the cost of raw materials far exceeds the Contributory Value the floor adds to the home. But that is not why people like Jack complete these projects. The reasons are generally personal. Because only specific buyers appreciate these works the cost involved is often not fully recaptured. Contributory Value can be better understood by two common items. A pool and a woodstove. The story goes like this. A pool and a woodstove walk into a bar…. Sorry, I digress. Let’s start with the pool first. Assume for example that you are putting your home up for sale and in your back yard is a beautiful, new in-ground pool. Assume also that 100 people come by to see your home. The first 33 people stop by, see your home, see the pool and fall in love with the property. They love to swim and have to have a home with a pool. They want your home without reservation and are willing pay full price for the home in addition to the full cost of the new pool. The next 33 people stop by. They see the pool and become indifferent about your home. They too love to swim but they also see higher insurance rates, water bills, pool chemicals, maintenance etc. They are on the fence and could take or leave your home – they will give you say 50% toward what the pool cost. The last 33 people come to see your home (okay, I lied- only 99 people came to your house), walk in the back yard, see the pool and leave. To these people the pool is a deal-breaking death trap. They are afraid of the water and would prefer a garden. At no price will they consider your home. The Contributory Value of the pool then is a blending of these three groups of prospective buyers relative to the Cost of the Pool. Let’s say for example the pool cost $30,000 new. The Contributory Value falls somewhere between Group 1 which might pay full value, i.e. $30,000 and Group 3, which would pay nothing. The Contributory Value is of course market specific. Julian, quite possibly, may have among the lowest Contributory Values of a pool in San Diego County for obvious reasons. Rancho Santa Fe may have the highest – as pools are often an expected amenity. A contrast to the pool in Julian is the woodstove. In Julian the woodstove may be the single most important $2,000 (plus or minus) investment one could make. I personally would not live here without one. The cost savings in heat alone, not to mention the ambiance, is invaluable. The result is that the Contributory Value of a woodstove is very high and approaches its actual cost. Conversely, that same woodstove in Rancho Santa Fe is likely considered a dark, dirty liability and among the first things discarded by a new owner. Most improvements have this degree of logic applied to their Contributory Value. It is the main reason why garage parking consistently rates at or near the top of Contributory Value. Everybody could use a garage whether for parking, storage, even rental space. Quality kitchens, custom baths, replacement windows, a new HVAC etc. etc. all fall in this same general category. The bottom line is this. The greater the appeal of an item across the broadest, local market range generally results in the highest return on investment. Permits: When I began my

The Julian News 9 career in the mid 1980’s the issue of permits was a relatively small one. Many lenders merely required that improvements “appear to have been completed in a workman-like manner”. Today that is no longer the case. If your structure (Gross Living Area) varies significantly from what is reported by the County be prepared to explain why. Local governments are increasingly cracking down on unrealized revenue that results from work completed without permits. More importantly, the unpermitted areas are extending beyond the typical room addition/garage conversion to other structures – pools, decks, outbuildings etc. A few years back the Government of Greece decided to crack down on unpermitted pools in order to collect tax revenue and restore their economy. Officials went to satellite imagery to compare properties. They found in these images, not only unpermitted pools but additionally, unpermitted houses and more. This technique is now widespread in use and growing. The good news is that in many cases it is possible to have a structure that was built without permits – permitted. Assuming the work was done to code the County of San Diego will often work with you to obtain the necessary permits - for a fee and an increase in property tax. If you have plans to sell or refinance and the improvement in question has a high Contributory Value, you will need to make a decision. Problem Areas: A lack of a permanent heat source (wall, floor or forced air etc.), unrecorded (or lacking) private road maintenance agreements, failing or inadequate septic systems are among the most common problems in the Backcountry. Another common problem which hangs up a high number of loans is the condition of a deck. Rotted deck boards, failing joists, missing rails, broken stairs – these are among the most common problems facing homeowners. It comes down to safety and, much like exposed wiring, the liability presented by an unsafe condition is one no appraiser, no lender is willing to take. Carpets can be stained, yards overgrown but health and safety issues cannot be ignored. Therefore if you are aware of a Health/Safety issue my advice is to fix it before the appraiser arrives. I have fallen through only one deck in 28 years and it did not end well. A True Story: Among my favorite stories, and one that seems to tie all of the aforementioned together, is that of Ida Mae. After the Cedar Fire Ida rebuilt a beautiful but modest home. The floor plan was both functional and unique. More importantly, the design had near perfect Conformity with the topography of the land as well as the surrounding homes. The paint scheme, landscaping and outbuildings were well thought out and the property, corner-to corner, complimented the whole. Maintenance on the home was exceptional, clutter nonexistent. It was also Maximally Productive with a guest unit. It of course had a woodstove. The Contributory Value of the improvements could not have been higher so Ida did the only thing she could do. She started improving neighboring properties. Cutting brush from vacant lots, pulling weeds, clearing debris, planting flowers, even repairing and maintaining her private street she shared with others. The neighbors in turn benefitted not only from Ida’s home they benefitted from her work in their little corner of the community. Unfortunately, for all her effort little if anything was reciprocated by the neighbors in helping Ida. Then one day a neighbor needed to refinance their home. I confirmed with the owner that the house was located on a private street and enquired about a Private Road Maintenance Agreement. The borrower stated that no agreement existed but rather the road was maintained by a neighbor who shared the easement. When pressed for a name and phone number the borrower responded, “Ida Know”. The moral of the story? Get

to know your neighbors. Better yet, work with them on your small neighborhood projects, especially the shared areas – lot lines, street frontage, etc. Ironically the concept of curb appeal may be most important in our market where curbs are nonexistent. The more neighbors work to extend the boundaries of their homes to include those around them, and to selflessly create beauty, homogeneity and order, the better served we all shall be. Nearly 10 years after the Cedar Fire, dead trees, overgrown vacant sites, burned out remnants of foundations all adversely impact property value in the form of blight. I do not mention this to point fingers but to offer solutions. My own property has been a problem area as well. For years I have had a surplus of wood in the form of standing dead oaks. Each year I give wood away to those who could use it, which in turn slowly helps me clear my site. Barter is a wonderful thing. It is a two way addition of value without added “cost”. By creating value in the form of aid to others, as Ida has been doing, all parties benefit. So take a page from Ida. Help your neighbor, you will be doing us all a favor, and quite possibly, increasing the value of your home. Well, that’s it for now folks. Hope everybody has a great year, and remember, buy more newspaper. They’re useful. They're also at the heart of every great community and without them we would all be lost.

Consumer Info continued from page 8

If you're wondering just what reports are available to you, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) makes it easy to find them. Working with the Consumer Data Industry Association (CDIA), the CFPB has put to_gether a list of different types of consumer reporting agencies. By reviewing the list, consumers can learn about the companies and, most importantly, how to obtain a free consumer report. The CFPB offers this advice: "You may not need to check with every single specialty company on the list. Different companies collect information about different things: your medical records or payments, residential or tenant history, checkwriting history, employment history or insurance claims." "Being transparent to consumers is a top priority of our member companies," says Stuart Pratt, president and CEO of the CDIA. "In fact, consumers may find that the companies don't have information about them-for example, if they haven't rented an apartment or filed an insurance claim. But the data that specialty consumer reporting agencies maintain is highly regulated and consumers have a right to access it at no cost." You can find the list on the CFPB's website www.consumerfinance. gov. Simply type "consumer reporting agencies" into the search box or go to files.consumerfinance. gov/f/201207_cfpb_list_consumerreporting-agencies.pdf. Adds Pratt, "Our members are happy to hear from consumers and help with any questions." So take a look at the CFPB list. In the end, it's about you-and protecting your consumer rights.

Does No One Remember? I remember, as a young boy, standing in the upstairs living room in the house on the hill in Manhattan Beach. My stepfather was there, mother too, and while they discussed something I wandered into the kitchen at the east end of the spacious upstairs area. As I just said, the house and the neighborhood were on top of a large hill. Anyone looking out a window could see for miles - north, east, south – into the various city landscapes around us, and west to the Pacific Ocean. The beach was only a ten-minute walk down the hill. I went to the kitchen window and glanced to the northeast. It was a casual glance, but what I took in suddenly shattered my composure. In the distance, a wide column of smoke vaulted skyward; black smoke, gray also, about ten miles away, in the city. Higher and higher it went, and it went quickly, a large fire, and I backed away from the window and turned to Ross, my stepfather. With notable alarm in my young voice, I asked, “Is that coming over here?!” “No! That’s not going to come here . .” he said firmly, and he gazed at me for several moments, a reassuring gaze which dispelled my alarm. He turned again to my mother, the two of them continuing their conversation; a tense conversation which the adults often had when discussing something serious. Yet being young and living in a young boy’s world, I didn’t pay much attention to the talk, except to understand that something in the world around us was very wrong. And it hit home when, glancing out the window, I saw the smoke. That day was August 11th, 1965, the day the Watts Riots broke out in the Compton area of the Los Angeles Basin. The fire, ten miles from us, was set by rioters, and it was the first time in my life that I felt the stark reality of human violence; hence my terror. I knew fear, yet the prospect that an intense kind of violence might invade and injure or even kill us, introduced me to the feeling of being terrified. My stepfather’s firmness was a balm, and my intense feelings vanished as quickly as they’d come. During the days beyond the 11th, doing my paper route, I would go by the National Guard Armory on Rosecrans avenue. Ordinarily the Armory was a silent place, always closed, unoccupied, unused, a chainlink fence topped in barbed wire encircling the compound. Yet from the very outset of the riots, the Armory had come alive. Each day, at that point during my paper route, I would stop and behold the scene there. At that time of day, afternoon, uniformed soldiers, their vehicles, and everything else belonging to their realm were everywhere to be seen. And I, holding the handlebars of my bicycle, standing quietly, watched a line of armed soldiers. With bayonets fixed and rifles held in front, they advanced in unison across the large grassy field, practicing incremental lunges against an invisible enemy. The lines of soldiers,

by Greg Courson

The national news story in August of 1969 - LA/Watts solid flanks, were composed of twenty or thirty men apiece. When they lunged forward in unison, a chorused throaty cry filled the air, “Huh!!!!!!,” and thirty bayonet tips thrust forward, step by step. After watching for about five minutes, I would simply ride away. And it went on for days; day after day after day. It’s not always that I recall this vivid memory when Dr. King’s birthday comes around Yet this year I remembered. The Watts Riots, so long ago now, claimed 34 lives and inflicted hundreds of injuries on rioters, police officers, soldiers and anyone else caught in the street skirmishes. After the riots, Dr. King visited Watts and had discussions with community leaders there. Then, very sadly, three years later he was assassinated, touching off more riots throughout the entire country. Does no one remember? And while bringing up the idea of remembrance, another thought surfaces, one I’ve heard of late yet certainly not one I agree with: “The Sixties are over with.” When Don said this to me, that the Sixties were over with, it was sometime in the late nineties, and I felt bewildered and, actually, shocked. His tone of voice struck me, a semi-hard punch to the chest. At home later, further contemplation found me asking myself, “If the Sixties are over with, why is Don still ingesting LSD once a week, in the late 1990s?” And why my contemplation, my pondering? Why go into it at all? Why this essay? The 1960s worked a profound impression into my young mind, at the time, and the era in a figurative and symbolic sense isn’t over with at all. No way. Hence I wonder about people like Don, who express this somewhat common thought in a tone of finality. It seems that their Sixties experience was one of simply

being stoned most of the time; they were really never exposed to the more profound events that mark the era. At our local library, only recently, I ran into Mitch. The first thing he said to me was, “The idea that the Sixties are over with . . . that’s not true at all. A lot of important things happened and we’re affected by them today.” Hearing Mitch refute the idea drew me into a long conversation with him. He rattled off some of the lasting results, and then I added, “The Civil Rights Movement.” I told him what I’d experienced as a young boy. He gestured agreement. He grew up only a stone’s throw away from where I had, although by the time of the riots he was twenty years old and living in San Francisco. When someone says, “The Sixties are over with,” what’s the implication? If I don’t take the comment so literally, it means, “Time has moved on. Things have changed. Things are different now.” True, things have changed, which isn’t a wrong idea by any means, but the comment that the Sixties are over with possesses too many limitations. It’s a limited idea, and it suggests, for one, that we’re excused from speaking out about social issues and from doing anything to transform injustice wherever it rears it head. For two, I think a lot of people in my age group use the idea as an escape route. They’re basically lazy individuals who have, somehow, lost that internal flame of consciousness so necessary for recognizing injustice and taking action to alleviate its consequences. Three, the idea that the Sixties are over with trivializes an entire era, doesn’t it? And four, there’s great finality in the comment, as if there’s nothing else to consider. It’s a narrow, limited, confined idea which I believe tells more about the person expressing it than it does about the Sixties and all that they meant, and all that they still mean today, to thousands of people. For some of us, the profound impressions of over a decade’s time are not trivial. When President Johnson signed the Civil Rights Act in July of 1964, he and the other men of his time changed the course of American history forever. Now that a black man has gained the office of President of the United States, for two terms, it sends my thoughts back to the Sixties era again and again. How can they be over with when their influence is still so alive?

*** A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort. — Herm Albright ***

Opinion? Can Spell? Write! Waiting till the last minute to do anything is not the smartest thing. As an example, this writing has to be in by noon on Saturday because Editor has a lot of work to do in arranging the paper that has to be put to bed on Sunday to allow printing on Monday and distribution on a timely basis. I usually start my research during the week if required or consult notes from an idea I’ve had for a while. I rough out my column as the week progresses. However… sometimes you blank, can’t think of an appropriate topic, wake up groggy on a Saturday and just tough it out. Once in a while you get a repeat of an old column that has pertinence because of current events or the time of year. Sometimes you get the story of the “Tawkin Dog”. So last night I went to the benefit dinner for the Julian Medical Foundation at the American Legion and because of the crowds I sat among some new folks and some that I know only marginally including a fellow columnist for this paper. We spoke during the evening and talked briefly about writing for the paper. I mentioned that I hadn’t even started on my weekly task but I had an idea or two. She mentioned that I was one step ahead of her but commitment is commitment and she would get it out. We were at the same event, sitting next to each other, and essentially talking to the same people. I wonder if we’re going to write about the same thing? I said, “If I can’t think of anything, I’ll just make something up” she said, “I know, I’ve read your column.” Which leads me circuitously to the point, that occasionally I’ll get a “really liked the column this week Bill” or sometimes, “read the column this week, Fink. I think you’re a jerk.” Oh yes the point. If you like something in the paper, share it, write a letter to the editor. Don’t like something that ticks you off, share that too, and write a letter to the editor. Believe me the writers for our little rag appreciate what you have to say. Not so much that it’s positive or negative, but more because you’re reading something that a lot of folks work real hard at. There’s no money in it for us local writers, but if you’re naturally annoying like I am, a little literary jab at life once in a while is a great tonic. Anyway, controversy is interesting and sells papers. Papers that sell attract advertisers and advertising dollars are what makes a paper go. Without a local paper that has local writers, pictures of your kids and stories of local issues, Julian would become a sad little burg. Believe me, the networks, cable and Internet aren’t talking about what’s happening in Julian. Writing gives voice to the disgruntled, the appreciative, the dissatisfied and any other condition of the human existence. I can’t believe that anyone could read this paper from cover to cover, week after week and not have anything to say. I realize that in a small town many are loathe to opine for fear of offending neighbors or ruffling a few feathers or God forbid start a feud akin to the Hatfields and McCoys. But I subscribe to Thomas Jefferson on the matter when he said “I never considered a difference of opinion in politics, in religion, in philosophy, as cause for withdrawing from a friend.” Of course he did withdraw from John Adams for a while but by the time they died on the same day, July 4th, 1826, they were the best of buds again.

But back to the affair at the Legion. There was a great crowd in support of the Medical Foundation and in addition to the tickets that were sold, the tip jars filled. Just so you know, when you put your money in the tip jar during a charitable event at the Legion, the money doesn’t go to the cooks, dishwashers, servers, bussers, ticket takers or any of the dozens of people helping out, it goes to the beneficiary of the event. Judging by the crowd, there should be a nice chunk of change that will go directly to the Julian Medical Foundation. It was a fun event. The little Tyrannosaurs Rex’s (kids) had free run of the outdoor patio after they ripped and devoured their meet. And I got to talk to a guy who told me about "an archeologist friend of his whose life was in ruins". I am so sorry, I couldn’t resist. From time to time there are events at the Legion where there is live music. Next week there is going to be one of those more intimate events with a bunch of the best in local musicians that will stage an open mike. The public is invited to the event that will happen this Friday, January 24th from 7 P.M. to 10 P.M. I’m not at liberty to say who’s coming, but it’s a great group of guys and gals that have been plying the music venues of Julian and beyond for years. If you’re a musician and want to play, call the Legion at 760 765-0126 and they’ll work you into the line-up There is no charge to come in, there will only be a tip jar to show your appreciation to the musicians if you feel so inclined. The great news is that the kitchen will be open for the event and they’ll be serving cheeseburgers, garlic fries, chilidogs, French bread pizza, different chips and dip and soup at incredible Legion prices. You’ll also, as a guest of the American Legion, be able to take advantage of the bar with its great selection of beers, wine, cocktails and soft drinks. This event is just for the fun of it, so we hope you can make it.

It’s a little early, but not to early, to tell you that the Auxiliary is planning a dinner in February to raise funds for the American Essay Contest and Girl’s State. The Sons will have their first Sunday breakfast on February 2 that will benefit the Julian H.S. senior and junior class’.

Are You Financially Prepared for Parenthood? (StatePoint) The cost of raising a child is on the rise, according to the “2013 U.S. Cost of Raising a Child” report, conducted by, the number one pregnancy and parenting mobile and web destination worldwide. The report finds that parents spend an average of $13,000 annually on their kids. And while about two-thirds of moms feel that parents are spending too much, the vast majority of them are very optimistic about their future -- the number of moms worried about having enough money to raise their children has declined approximately 10 percent in the last year. “Children are expensive, but couples aren’t letting that hold them back from starting a family,” says Carmen Wong Ulrich, a financial expert. “They’re exploring different ways of saving, such as moving back in with their parents or accepting money from in-laws. These can be good short-term solutions for couples getting started.” To gain insight into their finances and take steps toward financial independence, parents can use a free budgeting tool, such as’s Cost Calculator. More information about the “Cost of Raising a Child” report is available at www.BabyCenter. com/child-cost.

As The Acorn Falls

by Sherry Wilson Lutes ®

Dear EarthTalk: Will I really be able to save money and energy in the long run by shelling out hundreds of dollars now for a socalled “smart” thermostat? -- Bill Cone, Aptos, CA Spending $200 or more to replace that older, still functioning thermostat with a new whiz-bang “smart” variety might seem like a waste of money, but it can be one of the best small investments a homeowner can make, given the potential for energy and cost savings down the line. The coolest of the bunch of new smart thermostats, the Nest, was created by former Apple employees who had been instrumental in designing the original iPod and iPhone years earlier. This simple looking round thermostat is reminiscent of old-school thermostats that one would manually adjust by turning the temperature dial. But the auto-awake feature that turns on the bright blue digital display when someone walks nearby gives the Nest away as an ultra-modern piece of high tech gadgetry. The Nest’s software “learns” the habits in a given space by logging when inhabitants tend to be home and awake and noting when they tend to turn up or down the heat—and then sets a heating/cooling schedule accordingly. Owners can also program the Nest, which connects to the Internet via WiFi, to heat up or cool down the house at a set schedule or go into “away” mode from any web browser or smart phone. While the Nest is likely the best known smart thermostat available—especially since Google acquired the company behind it in early 2014—several other manufacturers (including Honeywell, ecobee, Hunter, Radio Thermostat, Trane and Lux) have Wi-Fi-enabled smart thermostats available now as well.

Navigant Research reports that the number of smart thermostats in operation around the world will jump from 1.4 million currently installed to some 32 million by 2020. These kinds of numbers will help utilities meet or exceed energy efficiency goals regardless of other upgrades on their power plants.

Did you get started on your 52 Weeks of Personal Genealogy? Your descendants will love to know about you. Let’s get started Step 3: Ask relatives for information. We just had several holidays. Did anyone share memories growing up? Write those down before they are forgotten better yet get a recorder and have them record the story in their own voice. I wish I had done that, now both parents are gone and their stories are too. We always think there is time but it is gone before we know it. Contact relatives for any information they have to help fill in those holes on your pedigree and family group record. Ask if there is any documentation. Aunt Sophie may be reluctant to share, she may be more willing to share with you if you promise to send her copies of the work you are doing. Some may not want the family bible to leave their possession, take your digital camera and take pictures or take your scanner and scan the items at their house. Be sure to record who gave you the information. Strive to be accurate and thorough. You may not need to fill in every blank on a family group sheet, but each piece of information helps confirm that you have identified the right person and helps you learn more about that person and others in that family line. Next column – Now what 52 Weeks of Personal Genealogy (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).

The Julian News 13

Shortly after Jerry Brown was first elected governor, nearly 40 years ago, he famously said, “This is an era of limits and we all had better get used to it." In keeping with this theme, it is now taxpayers who look at Governor Brown’s proposed 2014-15 budget with reduced expectations. In fairness, there are aspects of the budget plan that taxpayers can endorse. The budget reflects at least some measure of fiscal restraint and austerity. Brown’s desire for no new taxes, continuing to pay down the ‘wall of debt’ and establishing a prudent reserve is commendable. Nonetheless, there was much unsaid -- some positive, some negative -- in the budget plan. On the plus side, at least Brown did not launch a jihad against Proposition 13, which must have come as a serious disappointment to some of the more rabid Democratic members of the Legislature. On the negative side, the failure to address major fiscal problems is a glaring omission. The teachers retirement fund -- CalSTRS -- has a huge unfunded liability that renders meaningless all the “happy talk” about surpluses. Add to that the massive shortfall in the unemployment insurance fund and the long term obligation to provide health care benefits to government employees and the good news turns out to be not so good. Without action, these liabilities will continue to expand and come back to haunt both taxpayers and the state economy in the future. Sadder still is that the governor wants to throw good money after bad into the moribund high speed rail project which is a horrible misapplication of precious transportation dollars. Adding insult to injury, he announced a plan to use “cap and trade” revenue to pay for the high speed rail boondoggle which may exacerbate the major legal problems he is already facing. Also, there is a lot more money for state employees.

This criticism may sound mean spirited, but it is important to note that California already has the highest paid public employees in all 50 states and the additional pay is coming from the Proposition 30 tax increase. So while state workers will get more, average Californians will have less because they have to pay for the higher compensation. Finally, with respect to a spending limit proposal, the governor said, “The devil is in the details,” which does not show that he has clear vision or sense of urgency on this important policy issue. (And do we really think the California Legislature will sign on to a plan that limits their spending power in a manner that is remotely effective?) There is another quote from Jerry Brown’s first term that is worth noting. In response to criticism from liberal members of his party for failure to spend even more he said, “It’s not because I’m a conservative, it’s because I’m cheap.” However, this year’s budget proposes increasing spending by nearly 9 percent and it is clear that counting on the governor’s parsimony is not sufficient protection for taxpayers. And this budget is just a first offering. The administration will issue a revised budget in May, based on more up-to-date revenue forecasts, and what lawmakers finally approve prior to the June 15 deadline may include a great deal of additional spending. It is clear that California needs a spending limit with teeth that allows increases only for inflation and population growth. Perhaps one of those super wealthy individuals, who, in recent years, have put massive amounts of money behind their pet ballot measures, would like to put their shoulder behind an initiative measure that would actually do some good. Jon Coupal is president of the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association -- California's largest grass-roots taxpayer organization dedicated to the protection of Proposition 13 and the advancement of taxpayers' rights.

• It was Polish chess grandmaster Savielly Tartakower who made the following sage observation: "Victory goes to the player who makes the next-to-last mistake." • In the late 19th century, a single female Bengal tiger, known as the Champawat Tiger, was solely responsible for an estimated 430 deaths in India and Nepal. After evading hunters and the Nepalese Army for years, she was finally killed in 1907 by a hunter named Jim Corbett. • A leech can consume 10 times its weight in its victims' blood. • In 2011, during a tough financial time for the nation of Romania, the government instituted a 16 percent tax on the incomes of self-proclaimed witches, fortunetellers and astrologers. Those so employed were incensed and vowed retribution, some casting spells against the president and those members of the government who had supported the legislation. In an unrelated incident, the legislature also drafted a measure that would punish those who incorrectly predicted the future. • Famed magician Harry Houdini was born with the lessthan-inspiring name Erich Weiss. • There is a planet named Gliese 436b orbiting a red dwarf star. It's about the size of Neptune, and it's very, very hot -- roughly 820 degrees Fahrenheit. None of this is terribly unusual; what's truly surprising is the fact that the planet's surface is made up largely of ice (with an outer layer of hydrogen and helium) despite the heat. It seems that the gravity and atmospheric pressure are so great that water is forced into a solid form, creating so-called hot ice. • A Louisiana man once caught a grape in his mouth that was tossed from 252 feet away. *** Thought for the Day: "He has all the virtues I dislike and none of the vices I admire." -- Sir Winston Churchill © 2014 King Features Syndicate, Inc.

been seen here in North America -- but it is here to stay! You use less than 50 percent of your major muscles when walking without poles. Walking with fitness poles, you use more than 90 percent of your major muscles. The poles help to spread your weight out, lessening the load when your feet hit the ground by 26 percent. This makes a big difference for people like me who have back, hip, knee, ankle or foot problems. Walking with poles also naturally aligns your spine and strengthens your core with each step -- helping you to stand and sit taller. I usually lose a pound a day when I walk using the Keenfit Walking Poles. You don’t have to walk as far or work as hard. Walking poles help to increase your cardio by 20 percent and your calorie burn by up to 48 percent without any extra effort. And 30 minutes of pole walking is equal to 50 minutes of regular walking. It’s one of the most beneficial and rewarding activities that you’ll ever do. Studies on walking and health have determined that patients with knee arthritis who walked three times a week “reduced their rates of pain and disability by 47 percent.” Patients at high risk for diabetes who walked and made other healthy lifestyle changes reduced their risk by 58 percent. Walking has been shown to reduce anxiety, and it is the No. 1 treatment for improving sleep. Before starting your walk, try drinking a caffeinated drink. A recent study found that not only can caffeine wake you up -- it can also boost your reactive ability (the ability to change direction quickly). According to Women’s Health, just one cup can often make a difference in your quickness/alertness -- so maybe you should meet friends for coffee before your pole walk rather than after. If you prefer a cool drink before working out, try my recipe for Greek Iced Coffee. It provides

Every year people are badly burned or killed by fires in their homes. The victims are often children, elderly people or the physically challenged. If you fit this description, you need to discuss your fire safety preparedness situation with your family or a friend. CAL FIRE advises you to plan ahead for fire emergencies. If you cannot move quickly, you should try to live on the ground floor. If necessary have a special exit door or ramp constructed for emergency escape. Keep a telephone and emergency numbers by your bed to save time in case of an emergency.
