How The Kumeyaay View The Night Sky
Julian Wrestlers Ready To Rumble This Thursday
Julian High School wrestlers will host The Rock Academy and Hamilton High for a “Tri-Meet” this Thursday afternoon, December 10th, at our home gym. Wrestling begins at 4:00 pm. Pictured above is this year’s team (left to right: Coach Tony Massa, Josh Tunnell, Nic Ritchie, Paige Smith, Alejandra Abarca, Levon Arabian, Joey Romano, Greg Conitz, David Rittberg, and Rachel Ritchie). The team has been practicing and conditioning relentlessly and has shown dedication and determination towards mastering the age-old sport of wrestling. Come out and show your support for these young grapplers this Thursday afternoon. Please join us at the Julian branch library as we welcome Michael Connolly Miskwish as he speaks on the Astronomy of the Kumeyaay Indians on Saturday, December 12 at 10:30 AM. The Kumeyaay lecture will explore how the Kumeyaay people utilized rock structures and constellations as tools to predict seasonal change and manage land resources. Mr. Connolly will share his research on the astronomy of this fascinating people including the terms for celestial events, constellations, observatories and practical uses. He utilizes his degrees in economics and engineering to reintroduce traditional environmental management into modern land Michael Connolly Miskwish conservation. Like almost every society, the Luiseno and Kumeyaay also watched the sky to determine the seasons and the best time to plant, harvest, gather or hunt different foods. Because the Earth is tilted, the sun is farther south in the sky in winter than summer, making winter days short and summer days long. The Indians marked the winter solstice, the shortest day of the year, with the biggest celebration because the days begin to lengthen afterward, heralding spring. According to one member of the Kumeyaay tribe, "Winter solstice is a key element in most cultures because it's the turning point of the year, it's when new life comes back." Connolly is a member of the Campo Band of the Kumeyaay Nation. He is an economist, historian, and engineer who provides consulting services in the fields of environmental protection, economics, energy, and land management. He writes and teaches on Kumeyaay history, astronomy and traditional ecological knowledge. He has two published books and many published papers on Kumeyaay history, environmental economics, natural resources and renewable energy. He is adjunct faculty at San Diego State University and a Board Member of Kumeyaay Community College. He holds a Master of Arts degree in Economics and a Bachelor of Science degree in Engineering. This lecture and slide presentation was planned to be near the Winter Solstice, adding educational value to the upcoming celebrations. Please join us on Saturday, December 12 at 10:30 am at the Julian Library. The library is located at 1850 Highway next to the High School. For more information, please contact the library at 760-765-0370.

Aviation Education Program Set To Take Off In Warner Springs
Burn Permits Available Effective Monday, December 7, 2015 at 8:00 A.M., the burn permit suspension in San Diego and Imperial Counties will be lifted. CAL FIRE San Diego Unit Chief Tony Mecham is formally cancelling the burn permit suspension and advises that those possessing current and valid agriculture and residential burn permits can now resume burning on permissible burn days. Agriculture burns must be inspected by CAL FIRE prior to burning until the end of the peak fire season. Inspections may be required for burns other than agriculture burns as well. This can be verified by contacting your local Air Quality Management District. CAL FIRE burn permits will be required until the end of peak fire season. While cooler temperatures have helped to diminish the threat of wildfire, we are still in our fourth year of drought. Property owners and residents are asked to use caution while conducting debris or agriculture burns. Always use caution when burning, follow all guidelines provided, and maintain control of the fire at all times. Individuals can be held civilly and/or criminally liable for allowing a fire to escape their control and/or burn onto neighboring property. Residents wishing to burn MUST verify it is a permissive burn day prior to burning by calling your local CAL FIRE Fire Station or AQMD at 858-586-2600. Pile Burning Requirements • Only dry, natural vegetative material such as leaves, pine continued on page 12

New plans are on the horizon to start a Career Technical Education Pathway in Aviation known as the S.O.A.R. (Schoolbased Occupational Aviation Readiness) program at Warner High School. To get the program off the ground, the school is off to a good start with the donation of a single-engine Cavalier Aircraft by Dr. Art Peterson, Ph.D. Home to a local glider port, Warner Springs has many community members that are passionate about aviation. As a former college president, Dr. Peterson is one such enthusiast. He was hired by the Thomas Walthen Foundation, as the president of the Aviation Academy, a high school program geared toward a career in aviation, located at Flabob Airport in Riverside. As a current Warner Springs resident, Dr. Peterson is volunteering his time to develop the S.O.A.R. Program at Warner High School, as well as an aviation club for students in grades K-8, known as Warner Wings. Both programs are based on an FAA-approved curriculum. A welcome reception and ribbon cutting ceremony will be held at Warner Unified School District on Tuesday, December 8, 2015 at 11:00 am. For more information, please call 760-782-3517.

Though “hunger Knows No Season,” This Holiday Season has become a genuine challenge for the United Methodist Church “Mountain Manna” food distribution program. The number of participating families has increased dramatically to over 210 families versus an average of 120 families only a year ago. This vital Julian program plays a critical role of providing a much needed source of nutritious food to folks who are facing difficult or challenging times and need some help. “Mountain Manna” is a nonprofit program, staffed entirely by volunteers, that relies heavily on private donations. Your generous support represents a special way for you to personally participate in a program that makes a significant difference in the lives of your Julian neighbors. If you would like to help this special program, you can mail donations to: Mountain Manna c/o Community United Methodist Church of Julian PO Box 460 Julian, CA 92036 THANK YOU FOR COUNTRY CHRISTMAS! On behalf of the Julian Country Christmas Celebration Committee, thank you to so many people who contributed time, food, and money to our community event once again! Each year, we always count on a wonderful group of volunteers to organize the decorations, and install them on the buildings. Hats off to Johnny and Diane Hake for organizing and directing the volunteers who decorate town; to Kirsten Starlin, her family and crew, for transforming the Pioneer Park each year into the North Pole; the AmeriCorps group, and the Mormon missionaries for volunteering their time; all of the performers who braved cold temps to offer their best for the event. Thanks to Julian residents and business owners for enduring the crush of visitors again, as well as the staff of the Julian Chamber of Commerce for arranging permits and many other details. The members of the Julian Historical Society and Pioneer Museum graciously helped out with parking and staffing, and of course, the Julian Fire Department transports Santa each year from his sleigh to the town tree. We especially thank our genial master of ceremonies Mike Hart, and master of boom lift Mike Menghini, for their annual roles in our holiday celebration. From A to Z, from Apple Alley to Juli Zerbe, thank you to everyone who donated funds for the event.
Amounts ranged from $10 to $500 per person, business, or organization, as follows, in order of date of donation: Mr and Mrs Franklin Barnes, Jr Teresa Stilson-Keller, Jeremy's on the Hill Albie and Tori Stark SDG&E Debra and Keith Gaudette, Apple Alley Bakery Donald and Rebecca Hanson Julian Lodge Julian Tea and Cottage Arts Tom and Jaclynn Lynch, Julian Grille Patrick Brown, Patrick Engineering and Surveying Romano's Restaurant Anita Nichols, Mom's Pie Shop Sheryll Rainey Roger and Cindy Hedgecock Juli Zerbe Julian Hard Cider Julian Apple Orchards Keith Webb Priscilla Webb Sons of the American Legion Food donations for volunteer lunches included area restaurants: Romano's, Candied Apply, Buffalo Bills, and Apple Alley; and individuals: Steve and Patti Thornburgh, and Dawn Glass. Thanks also for the dozens of local Julian folks who came to a drizzly, cold Pioneer Park the night after Thanksgiving for a "dress rehearsal" lighting of the town Christmas tree and acoustic Christmas carols! Ed Glass, Chair, Country Christmas Committee, Julian Chamber of Commerce

Happy (And Healthy!) Holidays
by Ashley Borden, Celebrity Trainer, Fitness & Lifestyle Expert
Eating right and staying ﬁt during the holidays can help you have a happier New Year. (NAPS)—Start your holiday season off right with a balanced approach of healthy choices and a little guilt-free indulging, too. With a mix of high-intensity workouts and smart food choices, you’ll feel motivated and invigorated come 2016! Adios, Gluten! While never diagnosed as gluten-intolerant, as a fitness expert, I made a personal choice two years ago to remove gluten from my diet and found I was less bloated and tired after meals. I stuck with it because I had more energy throughout the day and saw a noticeable improvement in my workouts. It also helped me achieve a balanced and sustainable healthy lifestyle. Here are a few healthy eating tips to reduce gluten: 1. Switch from wheatbased pasta to veggie noodles. Spaghetti squash, shaved zucchini ribbons and slices of hearty eggplant all make excellent pasta substitutes. 2. Grab a great tasting gluten-removed beer. Omission Beer is brewed with traditional beer ingredients, so it tastes like real beer, but it’s specially crafted to remove gluten.* If I drink beer, their Pale Ale is my go-to because I love its bold and hoppy flavor—no taste sacrificed! 3. Stay away from fried
and flaky appetizers. Instead of reaching for gluten-full and calorie-laden bites, reach for fresh fruits and vegetables and protein options like hummus, shrimp and Greek yogurt dip. 4. Focus on naturally gluten-free foods and stick to an overall anti-inflammatory diet. Foods like wild caught salmon, blueberries, cucumber, leafy greens, ginger, garlic and sweet potatoes are naturally glutenfree and help reduce internal and external inflammation. A large part of living a balanced life is finding ways to fluidly stick to your routine no matter the season. The Holiday Challenge Time is of the essence during the holidays. It’s normal for your schedule to be thrown off but that doesn’t mean you should compromise your training. Take a family hike or take the dog out for a run to get your body moving. You don’t need to go totally off the rails during the holidays AND eat low-quality food. Just keep your “off day” food standards just as high as your “normal day” food choices. If it includes the words partially hydrogenated oil, throw it out and instead look for items that have minimal, whole food ingredients. Having a few go-to workouts makes it easier to squeeze a workout in—even if you’re on vacation or have a house full of visitors. The Workout Body weight exercises don’t have to be fancy to be effective. All you need is the space of a yoga mat and your body. Here are three moves easily incorporated into two quick workouts: 1. Push-ups (on knees or on a bench for beginners/full extended body for advanced athletes) 2. Single leg reverse flys (foot can be on the floor for stability for beginners) 3. Air squats (beginner)/squat jumps (advanced). continued on page 10
The Holiday Gift Shop for Julian Elementary/JR High will be held during school December 7-11th. This is a great opportunity for our kiddos to secretly shop for family gifts at a reasonable price. This year it will be a little different-We have been/are still gathering handmade items and also ordered some, rather than bringing in a company! That being said... does anyone have any items they would like to donate or sell/consign to PTO for a reasonable price to add to our shop for the kids to buy(ornaments, trinkets, jewelry, pet toys, tools...etc.) Also if your interested in volunteering contact Jennifer Larson Reed 760-889-4529

Contra Dance At Town Hall
County Planning To Finally Act On Hoskins Ranch The County Planning Board is meeting on December 11, this Friday, to approve an amendment to the Williamson Agricultural Act that would allow 24 homes be built on the Hoskings Ranch Property. The property is located at the intersection of Pine Hills Road and Highway 78 and stretches west and southwest. It currently is over 1,000 acres of undeveloped land. Local reaction has been swift and generally negative; over 250 persons signed up for the Hoskings Ranch Subdivision Action and Resource group on Facebook within two hours of its being formed. Residents are planning to meet on Tuesday, December 8, at the Town Hall at 6 p.m. and are organizing transportation to the Hearings at the County Planning Commission for Friday, December 11 These and other Julian residents are concerned that thr development would have a negative impact on the quality of life in the area. It is likely that the homes will be large, similar to the multi-million dollar houses and developments on the Hoskings Ranch Property west of Wynola, and that the development will not reflect the small-town rural character of the area. Residents
are also concerned about traffic, proposed changes in Highway 78/79 and Pine Hills Road, and the impact on natural resources. The project water report, for instance, was prepared in 2011, before four years of drought— and projected continuation of drought after this unusual El Nino year, and before the golden oak borer began to decimate local forests. Although the notice of the hearing was sent only to 30 neighboring property owners— immediately before Thanksgiving and only ten days before the County Planning Commission will meet—there is a chance for local voices and concerns to be heard. Comments may be sent by mail or e-mail to Dennis Campbell at the county Planning Commission (Dennis.Campbell@sdcounty. ca.gov. They must arrive before 4 p.m. on December 9. Persons wishing to make comments in person or simply to register their concerns through their presence may attend the Hearing at the County Planning Commission on Friday, December 11, at 9 a.m. For more information and the latest developments, go to the “Hoskings Ranch Subdivision Action and Resource group on Facebook.
Joy, laughter and music will fill Julian Town Hall again on December 19th 2015. between 1:00 & 9:00 p.m., Julian Tours will be staging another fun filled, interactive, educational fundraiser.

Both Contra and Civil War dances will be taught. Dress up or come as you are! The event will kick off with the exuberant “Gold Hill Musical”, featuring historic lyrics, facts and photographs about Julian's 1870 gold rush set to folk music, written by CEO Celia Lawley, and include actors from the area community. Celia sings and plays fiddle while clogging and guitar, mandolin & tin flute in the show. Next will be a guided town tour including stories about Julian in the gold rush days, bringing the romance of the west alive, a visit to the historic Julian Pioneer Museum and then two Contra folk dances on the historic sprung dance floor with live Celtic music by High Strung String Band and Becky Nankivill, caller and guest caller Leo Catt. Julian Town Hall is located at 2129 Main St Julian CA 92036 The schedule and pricing are as follows: 1:00 & 2:00 pm “Gold Hill” Musical $10.00 adult, $8.00, child 2:00 & 3:00 pm Guided Town tour $10.00 adult, $8.00, child 4:00-5:00 Family Dance $2.00 per person (free with purchase of 10.00 ) (dinner break) 6:00-9:00 p.m. Contra Dance $15.00 a person To become a sponsor or donate to the event, please contact us below.

The Triangle Club Elves
Pollinators: Our Holiday Helpers Need Help, Too (NAPS)—There are many holiday helpers who are putting in overtime so you may enjoy this festive season. Think of the package delivery truck driver, the store clerk who helps find just the right gift or outfit, and the grocery store associate who stocks the aisles with all your favorite foods. The work to ensure the holiday season is festive, however, starts much earlier in the year, with the
millions of honey bees pollinating key ingredients for holiday meals, some of which may surprise you. These amazing insects work hard all year long to help make sure your favorite seasonal dishes are on your table. A hive of bees must fly almost 55,000 miles to make just one pound of honey. Now imagine how hard these bees must work to help continued on page 10

After performing at the Julian Country Christmas last weekend, Janice Bina-Smith and Blake Rogers of “Jake’s Mountain” will continue to bring in the holiday spirit by celebrating both of their recent birthdays this Friday night with a Jake’s Mountain Birthday Bash. And, since everyone loves a party, they have invited their vast array of musical friends to come and join them in the celebration. Dan Sankey is unable to be with them for this show, so Janice and Blake will head-up the music and feature other musical guests in an open mic style. So, come for dinner and join the fun, bring your friends and wear your ugliest Christmas sweater just for grins. And since it is the season to be jolly, they will sing some holiday songs and indulge in something sweet to eat. Music starts at 6 PM in the Red Barn.

What brought Three Chord Justice together in March 2008 was a love of the music they play and a desire to bring it to as many ears as will listen. Hailing from Missoula Montana singer / songwriter Liz Grace leads TCJ through a mix of country crafted originals and handpicked covers from the likes of Emmylou Harris, Hank Williams, Loretta Lynn, Buck Owens, Patsy Cline and other country greats. She got an early start singing in bars and honky-tonks, far before legal age, having to wait in alleys during band breaks. The rest of TCJ is made up from some of the finest pickers and grinners from the SoCal country/alt country music scene. Guitarist / Tele blaster Jeff Houck might pick the buttons right off your shirt. Cheryl Preston adds the background vocals & great percussion treats with Ludwig drummer Mark Markowitz, who powers the engine room and locks in the low end with bassist Dave Preston. All this and no cover from six to nine at Wynola Pizza, dinner and classic country music a perfect way to spend a Saturday night.

• On Dec. 11, 1918, author Alexander Solzhenitsyn is born in the Caucasus Mountains in Russia. The publication of parts of "The Gulag Archipelago" in Paris in 1973 led to Solzhenitsyn's arrest and exile in 1974.
• On Dec. 10, 1901, the first Nobel Prizes are awarded in Stockholm, Sweden, as Alfred Nobel, the Swedish inventor of dynamite, had directed in his will. It is believed that he did so out of moral regret over the increasingly lethal uses of his inventions in war. • On Dec. 9, 1921, General Motors engineers discover that leaded gas reduces "knock" in auto engines, eliminating the
pinging sounds. Ethyl alcohol also worked, and it was cheap -- however, anyone with an ordinary still could make it, which meant that GM could not patent it or profit from it. • On Dec. 7, 1941, hundreds of Japanese warplanes attack the U.S. naval base at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, killing more than 2,400 naval and military personnel. The U.S. declared war against Japan the following day. • On Dec. 12, 1980, American oil tycoon Armand Hammer pays $5 million at auction for a notebook containing writings by Leonardo da Vinci. In 1994, the book was sold to Bill Gates, founder of Microsoft, for $30.8
million. Gates has since loaned the manuscript to a number of museums for public display. • On Dec. 8, 1993, the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) is signed into law by President Bill Clinton. NAFTA eliminated all tariffs and trade restrictions between the U.S., Canada and Mexico. • On Dec. 13, 2003, in Seattle, the iconic Hat 'n' Boots Tex Gas Station is hauled away for restoration. The 44-footÐwide Stetson hat had perched atop the filling station's office, while the 22-footÐtall cowboy boots had housed the men's and women's restrooms since 1955. ® 2015 King Features Syndicate, Inc.

EAST OF PINE HILLS
by Kiki Skagen Munshi
Getting Prepared For What’s Next A friend is putting together a book to try to open the world of college education (so he advises students on admissions; this isn’t entirely altruistic) to kids who might not have thought much about it. Steve developed a series of ‘prompts’ and sent them out to various and sundry people and is collating responses. He is almost done but is still looking for people who aren’t lawyers, college professors, and the types a college advisor who lives in Washington, DC doesn’t find easily so if you, dear reader, wish to write something for possible inclusion please do so--now. The Julian News will get it to me… The list and my own submission follow: A College Memory I Wish I Had A College Memory That Makes Me Laugh or Cry Unexpected Lessons I Learned In College A Conversation With a Student, Professor or Coach That Changed My Life On Reflection, My Biggest Regret My First College Love How I Adjusted or Didn't Adjust to Majority Culture on Campus I Confess What I Wish My Parents Had Shared With Me About School The Most Important Thing College Did For My Career Probably the most important thing I gained from a superb liberal arts education was how to deal with complexity—first, that there are few easy answers to anything; second, how to make decisions in spite of that yet remain open to new information that might change what I already thought I knew. But the most direct link between college and my career was probably in Sierra Leone… ...West Africa in 1993 after the Valentine Strasser coup. With a certain amount of pressure, the youngsters who had taken over the country decided to have ‘the people’ vote on what form of government they wanted: Presidential or Parliamentary? How do you have majority rule but protect minorities (from, like, being killed…)? First past the post elections or proportional representation….that sort of stuff. In a country with high illiteracy, poor schools, and almost nonexistent internal communications or modern conveniences. Like government supplied electricity. As head of the U.S. Information Service in our Freetown Embassy, my staff (all Sierra Leonean) and I decided civic education materials were needed and set to work. This was before Internet and no one except my college Political Theory professor bothered to answer letters, so out came the old Sabine political theory text (which I had hauled around the world; you never know what books might be important) and we set to: What should a Government do? What should a Government not do? How do you get there? We came up with four or five sets of materials on basic questions, tested them on a group of high school teachers, then set out up-country. Let’s be honest: We probably didn’t make much difference but there is more than one indelible memory. The most vivid, in Port Harcourt under a tent by the light of the USIS generator (no electricity, remember, so we brought our own) a market lady got up, nodded her turbaned head in greeting, and said (in essence) that there should be regular elections to throw out leaders when “dey go be teeves an’ steal our money.” Democracy starts with simple ideas and, since simple ideas don’t get you very far, the feeling that your opinion is important. Perhaps we didn’t provide any answers or have much influence—Sierra Leone has a functioning democracy today but between then and now lay the horrors of an extraordinarily brutal civil war—but at least some people understood that their opinions were important. And they mattered because they could vote.

My Mother Marjie
by Gaylee Demlinger with a forward by Michele Harvey
I remember writing a column about my cousin Marjie more than a few years ago. Marjie was an incredibly unselﬁsh person, my cousin by marriage. Though we seldom found a way to spend time together because of our busy lives, we managed to ﬁnd time for conversations with each other during family holidays when my entire side of the family gathered. Sometimes we telephoned when we had time to relax, though not often enough. Marjie was always happy for me when I had happy moments to share with her and her ways of reaching out and helping others in unique ways affected my life beyond the volunteering that I had already learned to do since I was a child. When Marjie’s youngest child Scott had problems doing his homework, Marjie took college courses to ﬁnd ways to help him. She took enough courses to get her degree in vision therapy and went on to become the founder of P.A.V.E., Parents Active for Visual Education. By the time Marjie retired from P.A.V.E., it was an international organization helping many people to improve their vision through education and, if necessary, through therapy. Gaylee Thompson Demlinger is the oldest of Paul and Marjie Thompson’s three children. Holly Thompson Flores is in the middle and Scott Thompson is the youngest. Gaylee has written a tribute to her mom and I asked if I could print it because her mom Marjie left such a rich legacy for us all. From Gaylee Today is the tenth anniversary of my mom’s death. She left a vacuum that is impossible to fill. My mom always tried to live her life with love and service and do her best in everything. She tried to be a friend to all and help people fully develop to their potential. When we were small, she tried to finish her college degree. Holly and I didn’t know that babysitting was the reason that we got to go to Grandma Jessie’s so often. Grandma’s house was a place to get lots of attention, help make jam or rag rugs, play with cousins and get lots of handmade dresses and Halloween costumes. Her mom died when mom was only 27 years old with three children aged 1-7. I am now flabbergasted with the strength that she had after the death of her mom. I crawled in a hole ten years ago when my mom died, but my mom kept the family together and the family and holiday traditions going despite her loss. When we started school, Mom jumped in as a volunteer and ended up PTA President. She took us to the Backyard Swim program to learn to swim and ended up running it for several years. She and her friend, Janice, went on to teach adults, including my dad, through that program and started a year-round business teaching infants and toddlers. They wrote and edited, but never published a book about teaching your child to swim. They were a little too slow in getting it to market. When Holly wanted to join Campfire Girls, guess who volunteered to lead. Scott went to a charter school and Mom started volunteering, which led to an aide job and lifelong friendship with his teacher, which led to her original encounter with vision therapy and the office of Drs Treganza, Sanet and Hillier. She was excited by the ability to help so many people overcome problems with school or physical things like headaches or to enhance already strong skills. She was an amazing therapist due in great part to her empathy, psychological awareness, respect for others and ability to talk with kids and adults. It wasn’t enough to help only people in San Diego. She started a national organization to help others find ways to help their own children. She gave talks to schools, at conferences and she lobbied in Sacramento. When I wanted to have a Campus Life meeting at the house in high school, that inspired her to add on a 20‘x40’ family room so there would be space. Her dad and brother were great carpenter/contractors and that room became the center of many celebrations including retirement, 90th birthdays, one wedding and two receptions. I was lucky to have a childhood with a busy mom who put us first and my kids were lucky to have her involvement in their younger years. Family camping with a big group are memories I cherish. I will forever be grateful that she helped get me through that first week of motherhood. I was unprepared! Her hostessing skills were a great example too. By the time I had children, my mom was the only survivor of her immediate family which included her brother Will. I never realized how much pain she must have felt, and yet she kept providing happiness to others. That is the example I must strive for now. These are Gaylee’s thoughts about her mom. I added a few of my own thoughts because for me, my cousin Marjie was in many ways bigger than life and she was such a great example to the rest of us in so many ways. Thank you Gayle for your thoughts.

Tips For Winning A Scholarship (Family Features) Winning a scholarship can be as competitive as gaining entrance to the college of your choice. While academic performance, extracurricular activities and character all matter, your success often boils down to discovering scholarships that fit your credentials and properly promoting your accomplishments. These tips will help you prepare scholarship applications that get you noticed - and could get you some extra cash to help pay for school. • Leverage relationships and seek nontraditional opportunities. There are a lot of scholarships out there, and the wider you cast your net the greater your chances are of winning. In addition to traditional avenues such as your basic online search and checking the bulletin board outside the financial aid office, reach out to your network. Ask family and friends about scholarships offered by the companies they work for and organizations they belong to. You may be surprised by all the organizations that offer assistance to deserving students. For example, Foresters, an international financial services provider, offers the Foresters Competitive Scholarship to its members and their immediate family members, which awards

Winning a scholarship often comes down to organization; you can't win if you don't complete the application by the deadline. Although each application will have its nuances, there are some standard details that nearly every scholarship requires. Gathering and assembling these materials ahead of time will make the tedious task of preparing each application easier, and it will help you avoid overlooking something important when a submission deadline is looming. Be sure to obtain extra copies of items such as transcripts that take time to process, and reach out early to request references and documents such as volunteer work affidavits.

Make The Season Brighter For Families In Need In Your Community
Maykenzey Raines - 8th grader, on the attack
(Family Features) For many of us, a cozy winter's night isn't complete without milk and cookies or a warm cup of hot cocoa. But families in need in your community may be missing out on milk and its nine essential nutrients. More than 46 million Americans - including 12 million children rely on Feeding America, the nation's largest domestic hunger-relief organization. Milk is one of the most requested yet least donated items year round, but even more so in the winter months when food banks are even busier. In fact, according to Feeding America, food bank clients receive an average of less than one gallon of milk per person per year, because while Americans are generous with canned and dry goods, many don't think to donate milk because it's perishable. This leaves many families with limited access to milk's essential nutrients, including 8 grams of high-quality protein per 8 ounce serving. Don't just get together, give together Since 2014, The Great American Milk Drive has helped deliver more than 8.5 million servings of highly desired and nutrient-rich milk to hungry families who need it most - but there's still so much more to do. There are a number of ways that you can help kids and families in your own community this season: * Volunteer at your local food bank or food pantry. While donations are always appreciated, your local Feeding America food bank and food pantries can often use extra hands - especially at this time of year. Gather your friends, family or coworkers and donate your time to feed those in your community. There are many different opportunities to help across the country - at local food pantries and even virtually. continued on page 10

Actress, Mom And Host Of ‘The Real’ Tamera Mowry-Housley Encourages Parents To Invite Their Kids Into The Kitchen
(NAPS)—With a toddler and newborn at home, I realize how important it is to instill healthy life habits in my children and spend time with them in and out of the kitchen. I have found that when I cook with my son Aden, he is more willing to try new foods. For instance, when I am cutting
grapes for a salad, I am usually nibbling on a few as I prepare them and in that moment I realize I can get Aden to try something he wouldn’t normally taste because I am doing it, too. To me, food time is really family time and there’s no time filled with more food and family than
the holidays. My first memories of getting into the kitchen with my family were around Thanksgiving. As an adult, I knew I had mastered cooking when I was able to cook Thanksgiving dinner by myself. I truly believe that food brings families together continued on page 10
(Family Features) From clothing to housewares to toys, your old stuff can go a long way for someone new. As the season of giving approaches, look around your home - you might find there's more to give than you thought. Because everyone knows it is what's inside that counts, The Glad Products Company has teamed up with Katie Holmes to support its Glad to Give program, which was inspired by people using Glad ForceFlex bags for heavy donations. Together, they are on a mission to inspire and enable giving year round and provide an easy way to do so. "Winter fashion trends may change from year to year, but one thing that never goes out of style is helping others by giving back to your community," Holmes said. Holmes also offers these tips to make giving back enjoyable for the whole family: Make It Personal - Getting personally involved in a cause you care about is particularly powerful whether you are donating your time or personal items. Take the time to look through areas of your home, such as closets, kitchen cupboards and the garage, for items that may once have had special meaning to you, but are no longer needed. Donating those items to someone in need is a much better choice than letting them sit unused. Be Glad to Give - Whether you're giving to a loved one
or a complete stranger, giving provides you with rewards that extend far beyond that moment in time. Holmes recently donated a bag full of her family's winter coats to One Warm Coat - a national nonprofit that works to provide gently worn coats to those in need - and was happy to lighten her load for a good cause. Just fill a Glad bag full of your gently used clothing or household items for donation and go to GladtoGive.com to schedule a free pick up with a local charity of your choice. Involve Your Family - It's never too early to teach your little ones how to have a giving spirit. Holmes is always looking for fun little ways to involve her daughter in giving to others - wrapping presents, baking cookies or making cards are easy ways for them to spend time together and make a meaningful contribution to our favorite local charities or even a friendly neighbor. Enjoy the Benefits of Giving Back - One of the best things you can do with your gently used items is to give them a second life. While 33.6 percent of overall giving happens in the last three months of the year, the benefits are felt year round as people who help others are happier and healthier, according to the Network for Good Digital Giving Index. Signup for your free donation bag and find more ways to give back year round at GladtoGive. com.

Beverage Set Q: I have a seven-piece beverage set in pink: a pitcher with six goblets in the "Tea Room" pattern. I have examined it carefully, and I think it is in near perfect condition. It is not a reproduction and has been in my family since the 1940s. I have been offered $100 for the set, but thought I would check with you before I agree to the sale. -- Betty, Ogden, Utah A: The "Tea Room" pattern is popular and desirable. It was introduced in 1926 by the Indiana Glass Company of Dunkirk, Indiana, and production continued until 1931. The pattern was issued in four colors: amber, crystal, green and pink. According to Warman's Depression Glass: A Value and Identification Guide by Ellen T. Schroy, your pink pitcher is worth about $135 and the goblets about $65 each. The offer you received is about $400 short of the set's value, per Ellen T. Schroy, an expert in antique glassware who has written several guides. *** Q: Although I am not a serious collector, I enjoy going to estate sales and occasionally buy an item or two. Can you recommend a good general price guide
that you trust? I am especially interested in kitchenware, glass, toys and jewelry. -- Connie, San Diego A: There are dozens of price guides available, but one I find most helpful is The Antique Trader Antiques & Collectibles price guide edited by Eric Bradley and published by Krause Books. The 32nd edition has just been published, and the cover price of $22.99 is a bargain. This easy to use guide is the No. 1 selling reference of its kind and features more than 4,300 illustrations in full color. Although values can vary from region to region, this guide accurately reflects the antique and collectible marketplace. *** Q: Is there a market for Reader's Digest condensed books? I have several dozen, mostly from the 1960s. -- Hal, Dalhart, Texas A: There doesn't seem to be. Most of the ones I've seen at garage sales and flea markets have been priced at about a dollar each. Even at that low price there isn't much interest. You might donate your collection to a charity. ***

Many of California’s winter resorts along the Sierra Nevada range have recorded their first snowfalls of the season. More than two feet of snow has fallen on the mountains surrounding Lake Tahoe and Mammoth Mountain is already open for the 15/16 season owing to substantial snow making efforts buoyed by natural falls. Other resorts in the Golden State are set to open early including Alpine Meadows Resort on Thursday, November 12, one month earlier than expected. Heavenly Mountain Resort, Northstar California and Squaw Valley will also open before their scheduled operating dates on Saturday, November 14. Winter resorts across the Golden State are anticipating increased snowfall this season from a forecasted strong El Nino weather system. Many have upgraded their snowmaking capabilities to ensure maximum coverage of popular runs from top-to-bottom. These recent snowfalls and cold temperatures have allowed resorts to fire up snowmaking machines, putting most on track for a November opening date. From the snowy peaks surrounding Lake Tahoe and the terrain parks of Mammoth Mountain to friendly first-timer hills at Badger Pass inside Yosemite National Park and Southern California’s easy-to-access Big Bear, skiers, snowboarders and snow enthusiasts will be busy this winter season at Californian resorts with new restaurants, après ski parties and terrain park expansions. Below find a dusting of the latest developments at mountain resorts across the Golden State. NORTHERN CALIFORNIA New JetBlue Flights to RenoTahoe International Airport New Yorkers now have direct access to the winter resorts around Lake Tahoe.

The Siberia Express lift is primarily used by intermediate and advanced level skiers and riders to access the Gold Coast area, Mainline, Mainline Terrain Park and the Siberia Bowl. FIS Freestyle World Cup Returns to Squaw Valley Squaw Valley will host the best skiers and riders across a variety of disciplines as the FIS Freestyle World Cup returns to the resort March 11-13, 2016, for the first time since 1969. Improved and Expanded Snowmaking Alpine Meadows has added fifteen new high-efficiency snowmaking guns, allowing the resort to expand snowmaking on the lower portion of its Summit run. Five of these guns were awarded by a grant from the National Ski Areas Association (NSAA) Sustainable Slopes Grant Program and HKD Snowmakers. The added snowmaking will allow for more consistent snow surfaces and early-season snowmaking. Squaw Valley has also added high-capacity snowmaking guns at key lifts that will allow the resort to improve its lift access ramps and the lift-loading process.

Pour-in Pads: Maintaining Normal Function (NAPS)—Changing seasons, weather conditions, old age, injury, overfeeding and other conditions can all affect the way a horse moves and bears weight comfortably. Providing your horse a stable platform on which to carry itself is crucial to its long-term health. Certified Journeyman Farrier Tab Pigg recommends the use of pour-in pads to provide the extra support and/or comfort that horses require as they go through life’s stages. The Old Way Historically, it was thought that anything put under a plastic or leather pad would provide protection and support and cushion the sole. This is not always the case as these products don’t bond to the sole and therefore allow moisture and debris to enter which can cause pressure and irritation ailments. Traditional packing materials also cannot absorb concussion which results in concussive forces being sent up the leg. Another Way An alternative to traditional pads and silicone filling is a liquid pourin-pad made of polyurethane. It’s easy to apply, sets quickly

and that’s why I have partnered with the UNCLE BEN’S® Brand for their 2015 Ben’s Beginners™ Cooking Contest. I’m honored to be a part of a program that helps draw families closer together as they try new recipes and different ways to discover healthy eating together. This year, the UNCLE BEN’S® Brand is giving away five prize packages that include $15,000 in cash for the family, a $30,000 cafeteria makeover for their child’s school and a hometown celebration. Parents and kids in grades K–8 across the country have submitted entries and are now in the running for a chance to win and spread their love of cooking. Help a finalist in your community by going to unclebens.com and voting for their video from now until November 30. How can you get cooking with your family, too? Here are a few of my favorite tips for getting kids involved in cooking and inspiring young chefs of any age. Tips for children under 3 years old: • Stirring ingredients. Little hands can help stir roomtemperature items—and not just cake batter. • Rock and roll. Rolling pins aren’t just for pies and cookies. Have the little ones help roll out pasta and dumpling wrappers. • Make a mess. Cooking should be fun and sometimes a small flour fight is a must! Tips for children 3 to 5 years old: • Whisk it. Have your kids whisk the eggs for your healthy omelet. • Use cookie cutters. Not just for cookies, either. Make dinner fun by using the cookie cutters on items like pancakes or to shape rice and grains on the plate. • Dress up for the occasion. Kids love to play dress-up and your young chef is no exception. Let them look the part with their own kid-sized apron and chef hat. Tips for children 6 to 8 years old: • Math is fun. Let your children help measure and count as they double recipes and mix in the correct amounts of ingredients. • Play “find the ingredient”!
Help them learn where different food items are stored in your kitchen by having them find all the ingredients for the recipe. • Use themes. Have a “yellow” night or “orange” dinner where all the foods are the same color. Choose a new ethnicity of food to try or pick foods that all start with the same letter. You’ll be surprised what kids are willing to try if they suggest it.
Make The Season Brighter continued from page 7
Visit milklife.com/give to find your local food bank and learn more. * Collect food donations when you host. Hosting for the holidays? You can benefit families in need in your community by asking guests to bring something to donate to a food bank. While most people think of canned or dry goods, perishable foods like fresh produce and milk are often needed, particularly around the holidays. Find your nearest food bank, check its needs and any donation guidelines at FeedingAmerica.org. * Donate highly-desired, nutrient-rich fresh milk. By entering your zip code at milklife. com/give, you can ensure that nutrient-rich milk is delivered to a local food bank to help nourish children in your own community. What many people don't realize is how big this problem is - one in seven Americans face hunger, including 15 million children, and it's a problem that impacts all sorts of families, in urban, suburban and rural communities. And milk is one of the most requested nutritious items by food bank clients, but, it's rarely donated. Milk isn't just a drink, it's a nutrient powerhouse - but, only if people have access to it. Help local families put milk on the table for their children this season.
Holiday Fitness continued from page 3
Workout #1: 1 minute of each move, repeat 4x with a 30 second break between rounds: Keep track of how many moves you get per minute and try to beat it the next time you do this work out. That’s how you progress with your fitness! Push-ups Right leg reverse fly Left leg reverse fly Air squats or jump squats Workout #2: 5 rounds of the following moves: 3x Push-ups 6x Right leg reverse fly 6x Left leg reverse fly 9x Jump squats Consistent workouts are important, but are just one piece of the equation for a strong training program. Five Fantastic Training Hacks 1. Science has shown that High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT)—short bursts of intense exercise—causes the quickest body change and gives a terrific 36-hour post-workout calorie burn called the EPOC effect. Perfect for the holidays, when overindulgence can use the post-calorie burn! 2. Choose full-body exercises like bench press, squats, pullups, reverse lunges and deadlifts. For these, use weight that feels like a “7/8” on a scale of 1 to 10. 3. Schedule your training a minimum of a week in advance. Treat your training time as a nonnegotiable hour for yourself. If you’re feeling unmotivated, join an online challenge or ask a friend to complete 4 weeks of training 3x a week together. 4. Trade-off imbibing with choosing a good, hearty meal to start the night. A turkey sandwich with spinach and tomato on whole grain bread with avocado will keep blood sugar levels stable and you’ll feel better the next morning! 5. Invest in a fitness tracking device. Knowledge is power, and knowing what kind of activity level you engage in will help you reach your goals and then adjust them accordingly. *Product fermented from grains containing gluten and crafted to remove gluten.

prepare an entire meal. Take a look at how your holiday meal relies on honey bees and other pollinators: • Preparing your holiday meal takes time—everyone likes to snack while waiting. Gherkin pickles, salted almonds and artichoke dip are all appetizers that require pollination from bees. • After waiting all day, you can finally dig in. Cranberry sauce and other side dishes—roasted squash, honey-glazed carrots and brussels sprouts—are all delicious additions to your meal that count on pollinators. • Need a refill on your apple cider? How about your eggnog? Apple blossoms must be fertilized with pollen, as does the nutmeg that adds the extra flavor in your eggnog. • No holiday meal is complete without dessert. Pumpkin and apple pies are made up of key ingredients that require pollination. Bet you didn’t realize how many of your favorite dishes rely on bees. As you gather around the table this season, remember bees need to eat, too. Bees rely on the pollen and nectar from flowers and other plants to thrive. Without diverse nutritional sources, bees don’t have the energy that lets them travel, produce honey or perform any of the other tasks they need to survive. This is why the Feed a Bee initiative is working with people across the country to grow wildflowers to increase forage areas for bees and other pollinators. If we all give back to help feed the bees, they can continue to produce the fruits, nuts and vegetables we love to eat. You can also join the effort to keep our holiday helpers fed. Here are three ways you can help improve bee health and increase forage areas: • Give a gift to pollinators: By visiting www.FeedABee.com, you can ask the Feed a Bee initiative to plant flowers on your “bee-half.” • Commit to growing your own bee-attractant plants: The Pollinator Partnership’s Bee Smart mobile app can help you choose the best plants to grow in your garden to attract bees and other pollinators when the weather warms up in the spring. • Share your planting photos: Show how you are helping pollinators by using #FeedABee on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and Tumblr. To learn more about bees and why they’re important, visit http:// beehealth.bayer.us/home. Bees visit up to 5,000 flowers a day so that you can enjoy your favorite holiday treats. This season, give back by keeping bees healthy. Join the effort to keep our holiday helpers fed. Let Feed a Bee help you give back.
Pour-in pad materials provide extra comfort and support that horses require as they go through life’s stages. and produces soft, resilient, supportive pad materials. In addition, with products such as those from Vettec, the pad forms an immediate bond with the sole, sealing out moisture and debris. Also, it can be filled to ground level for maximum support and effectively absorbs shock and concussion. It positions the weight-bearing load over the entire ground surface and not just the wall. This reduces the “pull” on the lamina between the hoof wall and internal structures, providing the needed
support as the hooves acclimate to a variety of conditions. Some of these materials can be applied to unshod feet as well, to offer the same protection and support. Hints On Hoof Care 1. Hooves should be checked every four to eight weeks, depending on what the horse is expected to do; more often if his gait seems off or any injuries or diseases are plaguing him. 2. Don’t let her feet accumulate an excessive growth of horn, which can keep a hoof’s elastic structures from touching the ground and lead to diseased hooves. 3. Trimming hooves and selecting shoes should be consistent with the amount and type of work required of the animal, the environmental conditions and the sur- face the horse moves on. Learn More For further information, you can go to www.Vettec.com, where you can see videos about how to apply other Vettec products, and find out about nearby dealers. Or call (800) 483-8832.

Anza-Borrego Foundation Obtains Final Link In Providing Wildlife Corridor From Desert To Laguna Mountains BORREGO SPRINGS, CA — Anza-Borrego Foundation (ABF), official partner of Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, today announced the final elements in the conservation of the Lucky 5 Ranch in the Laguna Mountains, northeast of San Diego. ABF purchased just under 1,130 acres and obtained a conservation easement on 433 acres to fulfill decades-long efforts by California State Parks, ABF, The Nature Conservancy, and others to connect the 4,245-acre ranch to adjacent pieces of federal and state conservation land, creating a major parcel of exceptional natural beauty and biological importance. The acreage will eventually become part of Anza-Borrego Desert State Park. ABF’s actions are the final piece in the creation of a wildlife corridor—a continuous connection of publicly protected lands—from the desert floor to the Laguna Mountains. The large confluence of protected lands provides numerous recreational opportunities, sites for research and study, expanses of scenic landscape, support for abundant wildlife, and the potential for several species of animals to relocate if needed because of the effects of climate change. “Adding another piece of the Lucky 5 ranch to be preserved within Anza-Borrego Desert State Park is quite an achievement for AnzaBorrego Foundation and valuable to conserving San Diego County’s backcountry,” says Anza-Borrego Desert State Park Superintendent Kathy Dice. “In addition to creating a wildlife corridor and unbroken transition zone from montane to chaparral to desert habitats, this property also represents a prime example of 19th- and 20th- century Southern California ranching. These are the very things that fall into the mission of California State Parks – to preserve the best of California forever.” The Lucky 5 Ranch property, first homesteaded in 1860, lays between two large state parks — Anza-Borrego Desert and Cuyamaca Rancho. In the early 1970s, because of its scenic qualities, size and location, and natural and cultural richness, the property was considered for addition to the California State Park system. While budgets rose and fell and land acquisition priorities shifted over the years, Lucky 5 remained the property of the Daley family. Former State Parks District Superintendent and current ABF Trustee David Van Cleve affirms, “State Parks staff have been looking to permanently protect this property since the 1960s, so this latest and final acquisition is a terrific testament to their vision and hard work.” Fueled by the offer of a $2 million private donation, efforts to obtain the property accelerated in the late 1990s. ABF used that donation and a combination of federal and state grants, along with Foundation funds, to purchase 2,675 acres, or 63 percent of the ranch, in 2001. The land was then transferred to the state and added to the AnzaBorrego Desert State Park. Since that time, State Parks has expanded its system of riding and hiking trails within Anza-Borrego Desert and Cuyamaca Rancho state parks. It has also built a day-use parking lot for trail access, along with restroom facilities, equestrian trailer parking, and trail signage, expanding recreational access to Cuyamaca Lake, Pacific Crest Trail, and California Riding & Hiking Trail. The connections among protected properties provided by the Lucky 5 Ranch is consistent with a major shift in State Parks planning that occurred in the 1990s. Rather than continue to establish “stand-alone” parks, the goal changed to connect existing open space preserves. Connections did not have to be only between state parks, just established preserves. The new focus on connectivity also led to a major change in the Anza-Borrego Foundation. Instead of spending its energy solely on park inholdings, the Foundation developed a vision of establishing protected corridors from the State Park to other protected reserves -other state parks, federal wilderness areas, and Department of Fish and Wildlife reserves. Among the wildlife supported in this protected corridor are golden eagle, mountain lion, bobcat, gray fox, mule deer, and numerous species of reptiles and birds. The Lucky 5 Ranch property is habitat for plants designated as endangered by California (Parish’s meadowfoam) and federally (San Bernardino blue grass). The especially steep escarpment of the eastern flank of the Laguna Mountains provides excellent potential for several species to relocate if made necessary by the effects of climate change. In many ecosystems, species might have to relocate hundreds of miles to find suitable habitat. In steep ranges such as the Lagunas, it may be possible that some species could adapt by moving relatively short distances up or down the slopes. With a permanently protected wildlife corridor, such possibility may be the subject of research and investigation by the Steele/Burnand Anza-Borrego Desert Research Center, operated by UC Irvine in partnership with Anza-Borrego Desert State Park and the Anza-Borrego Foundation. The conservation easement on 433 acres held by ABF permits continued on page 14

I’m back. Sort of. I recently wrote about the great time I was having with this “brave new world” of modern electronic gear. It’s sad to say that along with the joy comes the misery of the occasional computer crash which forced me to borrow computers from others and the merciful folks at the library who even had a spare Chromebook I used when all the other computers were taken. So here I sit on Thursday night thinking about the coming holiday season. I don’t know what it is about this time of the year. Thanksgiving is over, it’s getting colder, I’m getting older… don’t laugh so are you. Work is slowing down but there seems to be panic about getting done what you have to, to have the funds for the holidays. Keeping the season in mind, being gracious about giving away those hard earned bucks to those that are truly in need gets a little easier. Every year I give money to the Salvation Army. Not a big check, not even a little check but when I pass the red kettle I drop in my change or a buck or two. I’ve never been a beneficiary of their charitable works and I don’t even subscribe to all of their tenets. I know people that have been helped a lot by the Salvation Army though and by all reports that I’ve read they return very high percentages of their monetary intake and salaries if any are extremely low. A couple of years ago I started looking at Charities and their practices through a website called Charity Navigator. They have a rating system as do other reporting organizations
that basically rate a charity by how much of the money they take in that ultimately goes to the programs that serve their beneficiaries. They report on employee and chief executive compensation, cost of their programs and other factors. They also report negative press, investigations and law suits if applicable. Ultimately they rate a charity by a number with 100 being the best. A charity that does not achieve a number of at least 75 under this system is requires a little scrutiny. There are charities you might expect a high rating from. Feeding America is four star, rates nearly 94 overall and a very high 96 for accountability and transparency. It gets no government grants, is a 2 billion dollar organization that return 98.5% to its programs. The Lions Club is also four star with a 95 rating. It is smaller than other organizations with 71 million in revenue and returns 85% to its programs. The American Red Cross on the other hand rates an 81. Their total revenue is nearly 3 billion with 53 million in government grants. It returns 90 percent to its programs but has been under scrutiny for its extremely high salaries, lack of transparency and has been called on to explain diversion of assets that are not within the IRS rules. The San Diego United Way rates only two stars at 79.2. It takes in 17 million and pays out 84%. In 2014 its President/CEO took no salary. The March of Dimes is an older charity that isn’t faring well. It gets only two stars and a 72 rating. It takes in 195 million, pays out 11% in administration or over 21 million and returns 67% to its programs. There are other great organizations. Make a Wish San Diego, 4 star, 94 rated. Fisher House Foundation, 4 star, 97 rated with 91% to its programs. The American Legion Family in Julian who watches the money it takes in like Scrooge and is as careful of its expenditures.

You can go to www.charitynavigator.org and get nothing but the facts Ma’am. Enough of the stats, let me get back to the Salvation Army thing. A few days ago my electronic, medical device, battery (emdb) takes a dump. I’d been getting the message of “low battery” for a few days but the sand where I live is deep and my head was buried in it up to my shoulders. I popped the back of the device, pulled out the silvery, quarter size battery, put it in my pocket and fortunate was I because I had other reasons to be down the hill that day. Buying a new battery was just going to be a stop along the way. Ramona… the bank, Starbucks, Stater Brothers where the Salvation Army kid is ringing his bell and bestowing God’s blessings. As I normally do, I reach in my pocket for my change and dump it in the kettle. Then the serious buying in Kearney Mesa and El Cajon for lumber and plywood, molding and hardware. It’s late in the afternoon and I start heading back up the hill with a stop in Poway. Costco, ($2.47 for gas, hello) and the final material purchases and a battery at Home Depot. Pick up some stain, varnish and some electrical doodads and I’m headed to checkout and the battery station end cap at the register. I reach into my pocket for my dead emdb and it’s not there. I’m thinking, rats, I left it in the well in the console of my truck. I leave my cart, promising to return to the hours’ worth of labor I spent amassing my load. I search my truck diligently and for those of you that know how poor I am at vehicular housekeeping it wasn’t easy. I couldn’t find the battery. Back to the store and check out, battery-less and head up the hill. I’m coming into Ramona and it hits me where my battery is. Now this may sound a little silly but the Salvation Army, in addition to the two billion that will fill their worthwhile red kettles this year will be my contribution of a silvery, quarter size, dead battery. I’m thinking I’ll stop by and see if the kid is still there and…
Hear Ye! Hear Ye!
I don’t remember where I heard this but it was so long ago that I now take credit for it. True charity is the act of giving to someone who has no ability to repay you. I hope you all steal this saying and practice it as well.

Dear Earthtalk: The holidays can be so wasteful. What are some ways we can green our celebrations this year? -- Belinda McHugh, Los Angeles, CA Sipping eggnog, listening to carols by the fire and enjoying the beauty of colorfully decorated homes are all warm memories the holiday season conjures. Yet with the rising popularity of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, millions of people are now increasingly absorbed in the season’s commercialism. The National Retail Federation estimates that holiday sales this year will add up to $630.5 billion. All of this shopping generates a lot of trash. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Americans throw away approximately one million extra tons of trash between Thanksgiving and New Year’s
Day. “Simplify the Holidays,” an e-booklet from the Center for a New American Dream (CNAD), reports that nine in 10 Americans believe holidays should be more about family and caring for others, not giving and receiving gifts, yet the average U.S. consumer plans to spend more this year—about $805—on holiday shopping than last year. To help provide meaningful ways to have fun with less stuff this season, “Simplify the Holidays” includes ideas for simple gifts, low-waste wrapping, ways to connect with your children during the holidays, and more. Readers are asked to “consider creating holidays that instill more meaning into the season and encourage more sharing, laughter, creativity and personal renewal.” “It’s not about depriving yourself of things during the holiday season,” Wen Lee, director of online media and engagement with CNAD, emphasizes. “It’s about refocusing on things that really matter, and reducing stress.” Additional easy, stress-free ways to respect the environment during the holidays include carrying reusable totes when shopping for gifts, and using

LED lights, which last 20-30 years and require 1/50th the electricity of conventional lights for decorating your tree or home. According to CalRecycle, the 2.6 billion holiday cards sold each year could fill a football field 10 stories high—fortunately, the multitude of e-cards available on the web today provide a nowaste alternative. Further, the 33 million Christmas trees the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates are sold in North America each year don’t have to end up in landfills—some areas have recycling programs that turn Christmas trees into wood chips and mulch, and some companies will home-deliver full-size, potted live trees and pick them up after New Year’s and re-plant them. And with nearly 60 percent of Americans admitting they receive unwanted gifts during the holidays, asking friends and family what gifts they really need or want is an easy way to save waste and minimize time-consuming returns. Greening your holiday season certainly helps the environment,
but research shows it is also good for personal and family wellbeing. The 2002 study, “What Makes for a Merry Christmas?” by psychologists Tim Kasser and Kennon Sheldon concluded that “family and religion provided the greatest benefit to holiday well-being.” Kasser recently told the American Psychological Association (APA): “[Our study] found that to the extent people focused their holiday season around materialistic aims like spending and receiving, the less they were focused on spiritual aims…we also found people reported ‘merrier’ Christmases when spirituality was a large part of their holiday, but reported lower Christmas well-being to the extent that the holiday was dominated by materialistic aspects.” CONTACTS: CNAD, www.

The California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) seeks public comment on its nine draft companion plans, which will supplement the recently revised 2015 State Wildlife Action Plan (SWAP). The public review period will run from Nov. 16, 2015, through Jan. 15, 2016. In addition, CDFW will hold a public meeting to present the plans and answer questions on Nov. 30, 2015, from 1-3 p.m. in the Natural Resources Building auditorium, 1416 Ninth Street, Sacramento. The companion plans focus on specific over-arching issues that have a significant impact on the state’s fish and wildlife resources. The plan categories are agriculture, consumptive and recreational users, energy development, forests and rangeland, land-use planning, transportation planning, tribal lands, water management and marine resources. CDFW created these supplemental plans to provide more specificity and flexibility to the overall SWAP. Because these documents focus on a single issue, they can be easily adapted as new information is obtained and new management strategies developed. The goal of the SWAP is to examine the health of the state’s fish and wildlife resources and to prescribe actions to conserve these resources before they become endangered and more costly to protect. The plan also promotes wildlife conservation while furthering responsible development and addressing the needs of a growing human population. As mandated by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service continued on page 14
continued from page 1 needles and tree trimmings may be burned. • The burning of trash, painted wood or other debris is not allowed. • Do NOT burn on windy days. • Piles should be no larger than four feet in diameter and in height. You can add to pile as it burns down. • Clear a 10 foot diameter down to bare soil around your piles. • Have a shovel and a water source nearby. • An adult is required to be in attendance of the fire at all times. Safe residential pile burning of forest residue by landowners is a crucial tool in reducing fire hazards. State, Federal and Local land management and fire agencies will also be utilizing this same window of opportunity to conduct prescribed burns aimed at improving forest health on private and public lands. For more information on burning, visit the CAL FIRE website at www.fire.ca.gov.

The Julian News 13
Are Voters Starting To Grasp The Debt Crisis? by Jon Coupal The former head of the United States Government Accountability Office (GAO) has estimated that the national debt is a staggering three times as much as usually publicized. Rather than $18 trillion, the actual number is around $66 trillion. News reports about government debt at all levels are now more frequent and increasingly alarming. There is little doubt that this is due to the fact that the debt crisis is actually getting worse. ? But it might also be a reflection of a greater awareness on the part of citizens and the news media that debt is a real danger. For those of us who have been warning about government debt for decades, this greater awareness is long overdue. Understanding all the ramifications of public debt isn’t easy. As to the magnitude of debt, former California legislator and now congressman Tom McClintock used to refer to “MEGO” numbers (My Eyes Glaze Over) meaning that citizens really can’t be expected to comprehend the vastness of numbers – like $66 trillion – with so many zeros behind them. And it isn’t just the amount of debt that is confusing. In addition to voter approved bonds, normally referred to as “general obligation” bonds, there are a myriad of debt instruments pushed by powerful special interests including revenue bonds, “certificates of participation” and a host of other esoteric instruments created for the purpose of avoiding voter approval. Other government debt isn’t even reflected by bonds or other instruments. The hundreds of billions of dollars of unfunded pension obligations in California is most certainly debt that ultimately will have to be repaid by taxpayers. And as columnist Dan Walters with the Sacramento Bee just noted, California had to borrow $10 billion from the federal government for the
state’s Unemployment Insurance Fund which remains insolvent even though we are told by the political elites that California is in the midst of a vibrant economic recovery. So why is it, given the complexity of issues related to government debt, that the public is starting to pay attention? First, high profile municipal bankruptcies in Vallejo, Stockton and other cities have wreaked havoc on both taxpayers’ wallets and on public services. There is widespread belief that even Los Angeles itself will be unable to avoid bankruptcy. Second, both the media and taxpayer advocacy groups like Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association have successfully used the Public Record Act to secure far more detailed information than has been available in the past about employee pay and benefits, including lavish pension benefits. The disclosure of this information has spurred voters to start wondering why our services are second rate while public employee compensation is so high. Third, both private organizations and public entities have vastly improved data bases easily accessible on the internet making these complex issues a little easier to understand. For example, Controller John Chiang has just created a new website called Debt Watch to provide voters with more information about the various bond issuances. But perhaps the biggest factor in the renewed attention of citizens on debt is personal experience. The 2008 recession left millions with underwater mortgages. Nothing focuses attention like a crisis that hits someone right between the eyes. Government debt in the trillions of dollars is difficult to understand. Not being able to pay one’s mortgage is a lot easier to grasp. 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 Russian-born composer Igor Stravinsky who made the following sage observation: "Silence will save me from being wrong (and foolish), but it will also deprive me of the possibility of being right." • If you live in New Jersey, you pay eight times as much in real estate taxes as residents of Hawaii do. • Given the popularity of both Legos and Star Wars, you probably won't be surprised to learn that the first licensed, themed Lego set was an X-Wing fighter, released in 1999. • Those who study such things say that wearing skinny jeans can cause varicose veins. • In the 1930s, during the Bolshevik Revolution, a Communist patrol in Siberia came across an isolated fundamentalist Russian Orthodox settlement. Christians were persecuted in the Soviet Union, and one of the soldiers shot and killed a man working in the village. This prompted the man's brother, Karp Lykov, to flee into the forest with his wife and two young children. A sad story, perhaps, but nothing unusual -- until you find out that the Lykov family remained in complete isolation for 42 years. It wasn't until 1978 that surveyors in a helicopter saw in a remote area a clearing that was obviously not of natural origin. Investigation revealed that Karp and his four children (his wife had died in 1961) were living in a crude log dwelling. They'd had no contact with the outside world since fleeing their village in 1936, and two of the children had never seen a human not related to them. • A male lion can mate up to 50 times in one day. *** Thought for the Day: "Language is the apparel in which your thoughts parade in public.

IN THE MATTER OF THE APPLICATION OF: JODY MICHAEL MENZER FOR CHANGE OF NAME
SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) You might not know all the facts behind an unwelcome development, so keep that Scorpion temper in check and resist lashing out at anyone. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) This is a good time to reinforce relationships -- family, friends, colleagues -- that might have been overlooked in recent years. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Family situations continue to thrive. Business associations also improve. Some holiday plans might have to be shifted a bit. Be ﬂexible. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Avoid any inﬂuence of negative energy in this week's aspect by not allowing small problems to grow into large ones. Work them out immediately. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) A friend might need advice on how to deal with a challenge to his or her moral values. And who better than you to give the honest answer? Good luck. BORN THIS WEEK: You have a sense of adventure that inspires others to follow your lead.

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) You might feel that you have all the answers right now. But it might be wise to listen to other ideas before you decide to close the lid on other possibilities. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Bovines give and expect loyalty, so it might not be easy to reconcile with someone you feel let you down. Why not ask a neutral party to set up a clear-the-air meeting? GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Anticipating the holidays with family and friends fuels your mustdo Gemini energies. But try to pace yourself so you'll be up for whatever comes along later. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) More background information might come through regarding a decision you expect to make. Be sure to check the source carefully before you move. LEO (July 23 to August 22) The strong, nurturing nature of the Lion comes through this week as you reach out to family and friends in need of your warm and loving support. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) A relationship that has almost totally unraveled could be close to being restored with more effort on your part to be more patient and less judgmental. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Your sense of fair play is strong this week, which can cause a problem with a longtime relationship. But in the end, you'll know what decision to make.
