Holiday Celebration At Julian Elementary

Girls Basketball

The Julian Elementary school once again showed off the talents of each of its’ classes with the annual “Holiday Celebration” with a multi-purpose room packed with parents and friends, brother, sisters, grandparents and good cheer. Each class, under the direction of Mrs. Croman and their respective teachers preformed some holiday classics (grade appropriate) for all to enjoy. The 90 minute presentation put all in attendance, and those participating, in a festive holiday mood for the rest of the week, one grand-parent reported their grand children would sing their way to and from school every day for the week prior to the assembly then sang the other grades songs on the Thursday and Friday after.

Printed on Re-Cycled Paper

I am happy that Mike Hart added the Eaglette section to his newspaper. Several articles there have almost prompted me to respond to them. Recently, one article gave me cause to do just that. That writer asked, “When did the bad begin to get more attention than the good?” As a historian, and as a graduate of Julian High, that question throws things into a historical context. The answer, in my opinion, is that it has been that way ever since I can remember. When people behave “properly”, as they should, no one notices it. It is what we expect of society. When behavior goes to extremes (good or bad), it is noticed. People (historians included) say we study history so we can learn from our mistakes. I wish that were true. The world might be in a better state today if it were. I prefer to say, history shows us that almost every problem we face now, we have faced before and we dealt with them. Most of the time, we overcame them. The portion of the article that prompted me to write was this: “I believe that the problems at my high school are just a phase. It will pass…Those who are succeeding right now are going to continue to succeed. Those who are not will continue to be who they are.” For the most part, this may be true. But this is not a phase, and predicting the outcome of people’s lives based upon who they are in high school doesn’t always work. Drinking, drugs, smoking and destructive behavior have been a part of life for centuries. It has been a part of high school for a long while. There was a time when growing up in Julian meant being sheltered from many of the big city problems. Sometimes people would move to Julian to get their troubled child away from those problems. Guess what? The problems migrated here with them. I was a senior when I first learned about drugs, and what they could do to my friends. Drugs and alcohol took one of the best athletes, and most popular boys in our school, down a road I am sure he did not want to travel. Lesson here? Being the best athlete and a popular person in school does not insure success. The year after my class graduated from high school, my best friend (and some others) stole a car and trashed it. Faced with a choice of jail or the military (they did that back then), my friend chose the military. He flew helicopter rescues in the first Gulf War. Then he left the military and flew for the government until his

retirement. Lesson here? Good boys can make mistakes, change their lives, and get it right. In his senior year, the son of a friend of mine came to me dejected. He said he wasn’t popular and not included in many of the things that were important to him at the time. He was a better than average student, a good worker and a good kid. My advice to him was not to despair. I told him that when he started at college, or the technical school he ended up going to, he would be starting with a clean sheet. No one would know anything about him and couldn’t judge him from where he was now. I don’t know if it worked that way for him, but today he has his own successful business, a good marriage, and two good sons. Lesson here? High school can profoundly affect your life. It can scar you in many ways. But every day is a new day, and is a chance to succeed even though you think the deck is stacked against you. Lastly, I would ask that students do not judge each other too harshly without knowing each other’s situation. Not all of us start life in the same place. Not all of us have the same support system. Not all of us get our moral compass pointed in the right direction early in life. Don’t preach to others. Help them find their way by example. Education, money, and position thought to mark success. I say service, goodness and character are the mark of success. Keep writing student writer. David Lewis

Triangle Club Installs New Officers

Warner Lands It’s Aviation Program For the students of Warner Unified School District, Christmas came early with the gift of an airplane. The school district has plans to launch an Aviation Education Program for its High School in the fall of 2016, and an aviation club in the elementary and junior high schools with a focus on STEM education. The plane donation was from Dr. Art Peterson, a resident of Warner Springs who created an a high school aviation program in Riverside. On Tuesday, December 8, 2015, a plane reception and ribbon cutting ceremony was held with the students, staff and community. History Teacher and pilot, Scott Loefke, provided the introduction with a mini-presentation on the history of this Cavalier Aircraft and oriented the students to the parts of the plane. In her closing remarks, Superintendent Dr. Melissa Brown stated, “This plane symbolizes the future of our school, and holds great promise. An aviation program for our students, Warner SOAR for our high school and Warner Wings for our students in K-8.” The District is currently planning an open house event and aviation career day in the spring of 2016.

Excitement was in the air on this day before Christmas. Colder weather was forecast for later in the day after some rain showers moved through. “Come on, everyone in the car,” Laurie directed her two children. “Hey Mom, can we stop by the mall and see Santa again?” Artie asked. “No, not enough time,” she replied and added, “put on your seatbelts.” “Maybe see Santa later on?” Millie suggested. “We’ll see how the time goes. If we get these Christmas party decorations home and put up in time we may stop by Santa’s Village,” she offered. Their car headed off down the street. A few minutes later, Laurie noticed a rust colored car up ahead on the opposite side of the two lane road. The car pulled off the roadway and stopped in the grass. “What the heck?” Laurie said to herself as she saw the passenger door open and two objects thrown out onto the grass. As Laurie drove past the scene, the car sped off in the opposite direction. In the rear view mirror, Laurie noticed that the two discarded items were moving. “Oh no!” she snapped as she saw that the unidentified objects were actually two smaller sized dogs, one a longer haired tan Yorkie mix and the other a bit larger white mix. “Mom!” Millie yelled, “there are two doggies back there.” “I know,” she confirmed. “I don’t have time to go back …” she paused for a moment. “But I must go back there and help them,” she decided. At the next side street, she stopped and turned around. By now the two dogs were wandering here and there and looking around in every direction. Heading toward the abandoned dogs, she noticed the small tan colored Yorkie was darting toward the roadway. In a split second, another car speeding toward the scene hit the poor dog with a glancing blow. “Oh no,” she frowned as the poor dog stumbled to the side of the road. Artie and Millie were spared the vision from the safety of the seatbelts and the taller front seats in front of them. Laurie pulled well off the side of the road near the downed dog. “Millie, Artie, stay in the car. Let me go check on that doggie,” she explained. Laurie got out of the car and approached the whimpering Yorkie lying in the grass. “Hi boy,” she greeted as she slowly reached out to pet the dog. The ailing dog tried to get up but fell back down. “We need to get you to a vet,” Laurie decided as she scooped up the dog and returned to the car. “Artie, open the door,” she said. Laurie put the small dog on the floorboard of the car’s back seat. “Mom, is the doggie going to be ok?” Millie asked. “I hope so, we need to get him to a vet,” she replied. “Look Mom!” Artie noticed. “Another dog is coming up to the car.” “Oh, that is the other dog I saw with this dog,” she explained. “We can’t leave that doggie here can we?” Millie wondered. “Ummm …” she thought for a moment, “no, we’ll take this one too.” Laurie opened the front passenger door and the second dog jumped in the front seat. “Wow Mom,” Artie blurted out, “I think this doggie and the hurt continued on page 12

Christmas Carols Origins and Trivia

The early Christmas music compositions are regarded as chants and hymns. The original carolsChristmas carols referred to a circle dance which did not have any singing - that came later. As the church struggled against the influences of pagan customs, the singing of carols was barred from sacred services. However, outside the church, Nativity carols were written and became popular. Nearly all were simple folk songs created by people from the countryside. Saint Francis of Assisi is credited with bringing carols into the formal worship of the church during a Christmas Midnight Mass in a cave in Greccio, in the province of Umbria in 1223. It's said that the music sung that night was more akin to what we know as carols than to hymns. Carols enjoyed further development and popularity when they were used in the mystery plays of the Middle Ages. Wandering minstrels traveled from hamlet to castle, performing carols in the distant past. In later years, villages had their own bands of waits. Waits were originally watchmen who patrolled the streets and byways of the old walled cities keeping guard against fire and singing out the hours of the night. During the holiday season, they would include some carols for the people along the way, although some folks complained that they would rather get a good nights sleep than have somebody singing under their window. Eventually the term was used to describe groups of musicians who sang and played for various civic events during the Christmas season.

*** Long before the advent of Christianity, plants and trees that remained green all year had a special meaning for people in the winter.Discover the history of the Christmas tree, from the earliest winter solstice celebrations, to Queen Victoria and all the way to the annual lighting of the Rockefeller Center tree. Opposition to the Christmas tree was intense in past centuries. The early Christian Church in the third century CE strictly prohibited the decoration of their houses with evergreen boughs. The decorated Christmas tree only caught on in the mid-19th century. Modern-day opposition continues: some condemn the Christmas tree because they believe that the custom of cutting down a tree, erecting it in the home and decorating it is a Pagan custom. 1 For many people today, it is primarily as a secular symbol of hope for the New Year and the future return of warmth to the earth. Its future is assured in spite of opposition. ***

• On Dec. 22, 1864, Union Gen. William T. Sherman presents the captured city of Savannah, Georgia, to President Abraham Lincoln with the message, "I beg to present you, as a Christmas gift, the city of Savannah, with 150 heavy guns and plenty of ammunition, and also about 25,000 bales of cotton." • On Dec. 23, 1888, in Arles, France, Dutch painter Vincent van Gogh, suffering from severe

My Thoughts

HOME SERVICES

by Michele Harvey

It’s a week before Christmas and all through the house…

Explaining Christmas It’s the third week in December and the entire country is on a collision course with Christmas. The papers are full of ads, the malls full of shoppers, and Christmas trees are already at half price, leaned up against the wall at the entrance to the supermarket. The annual orgy of spending too much, eating too much and general holiday excess is here and we are, well, wallowing in it. For all of that, Christmas means something else to most Americans: Family, Church, Charity. These three words may not seem to fit with the news, the mean-spirited political candidates, the reports of mass murders, the massive bombing of other countries but down here, at the level of ordinary people, they are a part of daily life. All right, the statistics on families aren’t great. Only 46% of US children younger than 18 live in a home with two married heterosexual parents in their first marriage according to a Pew research study of 2014. (Presumably a few of these kids are adopted, accounting for the precise wording…) Some 41% of children born today are born out of wedlock and 34% of children are living with one unmarried (never married or divorced) parent. It’s not clear whether divorces are up but remarriage certainly is, though, and families may be less traditional but they are still families and ‘families’—traditional or not, actually related or not--come together at Christmas. Distance, not emotion, separates many people in this huge country and both Thanksgiving and Christmas are major travel times. Phone lines will be overloaded by those who can’t travel and those who have no family or are too far/too poor/too busy to travel are usually invited by someone, somewhere. If a family isn’t at hand, we make one— perhaps a hangover from the early days of the country when moving west by wagons and horseback meant that families could be days, if not weeks and months, of travel away. We come together with friends, exchange gifts and eat…always eat…aren’t holidays about food after all? And church…this is often a surprise to non-Americans. We are, on the whole, a religious country. Most of us (over 70% in 2014) identified themselves as Christian with over half of those attending church weekly. Here, attending church is often a real commitment. That is, we don’t simply than stop in to a church, listen to part of a service while standing in the back, and then leave. People in non-Orthodox churches come at the beginning of the service (or risk questioning glances as to why they are late) and sit down for a standard hour. (Many surreptitiously check their watches to be sure the pastor isn’t going over with a sermon that’s too long or short-changing them with on that’s too short.) After the service is over most churches offer coffee/tea and some sort of snacks for a bit of a social hour because a church is a social organization along with the religion. There are men’s clubs and women’s clubs and children’s Sunday School. There are classes for adults during the week to study the Bible and annual church camps. Choirs meet weekly and sing on Sundays…and at Christmas time the choir and others from the community pile in cars to visit and sing carols to the elderly and ill. The churches are also active in the third part of Christmas, charity, though giving isn’t limited to the religious. There are drives to collect toys for poor children and food for the poor. The police have “Shop With a Cop’ day when they take children shopping from families who are both poor and perhaps at risk of having other, less happy, interactions with the police. Bell ringers outside major stores collect money for the Salvation Army. The newspapers have daily columns (free of charge) for organizations which are helping out. Each day is different and include items such as the following: “Casa Cornelia Law Center, an organization that provides free legal services to indigent immigrant victims of domestic violence is collecting toys for its Holiday Toy Drive to benefit children in need.” “Veterans of Foreign Wars is collecting toys for all ages to benefit families of lower ranking enlisted personnel…” “The San Diego Veterans for Peace are handing out sleeping bag sets to the neediest homeless late at night in downtown San Diego…” There are also end of year appeals from regular charities because about 30% of annual giving occurs at Christmas time. It is helped, of course, by the fact that much of this giving is tax-deductible and it’s the end of the tax year but most charity isn’t tax-related—it is done because people here help one another. Beneath the politics, the mass murders, Donald Trump, and our foreign policy there is great decency, honor, hope and love in this country. And here in Julian we’re decorated for the holidays with the tree by the Museum lit up at nights. The Messiah was last Sunday, the Historical Society, Women’s Club, church choir, Julian Arts Guild and others have had their Christmas parties and our family had the Annual Cousins’ Christmas Tea, this year at the Westgate (nice but the Hotel Del and Julian’s Tea and Cottage Arts are both better). The Kid and Steve are flying down from Seattle, neighbors Eric, Jenny and Eric’s mother will join jus for Christmas Eve dinner. There will be roast beef and Yorkshire pudding and salad and the guests are bringing stuffed mushrooms and dessert. Cousin Bob is coming up from his place on the border on Christmas Day (if it doesn’t snow and the roads are open). The kitchen is filled with the scent of baking cookies and cakes (and the occasional swear word when not all goes as expected), the tree is up and decorated. Gird up your loins, we’re sliding into Christmas!

Give the Gift of Sight (Family Features) This holiday, give a gift that changes the way someone you care about sees the world - a gift that keeps giving even after the holidays are over. Now for as low as $17 per month, you can give the gift of good vision from VSP Direct to someone who doesn't have access to vision insurance. Taking care of your loved ones' vision can lead to a better quality of life, including fewer headaches, better performance at school or in sports, less computer eye strain and more effectiveness at work. Caring for your eyes is important to overall health.

And with more than 32,000 doctors in VSP's provider network, finding a doctor is easy. Insurance coverage from the No. 1 name in vision care, with more than 70 million members and a 95 percent satisfaction rating, means a comprehensive eye exam, an allowance for glasses and/or contacts, savings on optional lens enhancements, such as scratch resistance, anti-glare, no-line bifocal/trifocal and light-to-dark tinting. Plus, your recipient will receive the lowest out-of-pocket costs, with typical annual savings of more than $200. To enroll in minutes - and for complete details, including costs, exclusions and limitations - go to GiveVSPDirect.com. Giving your loved ones the vision coverage they need is a gift they'll use every day.

Sorry, I’m not a poet and I’m not good at paraphrasing other people’s words either. However, as I write this it really is a week before Christmas and I think I look like a deer in the headlights of whatever is coming my way. I get my Christmas shopping done early. This year I bought items for my three youngest grandchildren throughout the year. The children are 4, 5 and 6 years old. They live next door to me and Mike and we often transport them where they need to go. We also take them places where we want to go. They have been very polite while sitting through 2 different Music on the Mountain concerts at our local library and they are learning the finer points of public eating in a restaurant while dining with us once a month at Jeremy’s on the Hill when he holds his monthly salad bar fundraiser for Julian Elementary School. Since we spend so much time with them, it’s easy to see a thing at a store and say to myself that one of the grandchildren would like it. So I buy year round and don’t want to lose track of the gifts I’ve found. Since I shopped throughout the year and needed a place to store things and not lose them; I placed all of my treasures in gift bags. Three recipients of my gift giving this year are getting shopping bags as their gift bags. Another gift bag that I’m giving is a back pack. No wrapping is necessary for these wonders of my imagination… I say humbly. Back to my deer in the headlights look. Having finished my shopping, I now turn to the interior of my house. I’m great at telling other people how to organize their homes and their lives. At times I work easily within a schedule. I’m great at multi-tasking, but some things I’m not great at. In fact, some things I’ve never figured out how to do. Housecleaning is one of those things. When I was a child, my mom worked full time. She hired a house keeper named Ethel. Ethel was very good at cleaning our house and at raising me. She was there when my mom couldn’t be and they both taught me how to grow up to be a good person. The problem with having Ethel around was that part of Ethel’s job seemed to be to keep us kids out of her way. Consequently I never learned to keep my house tidy. My house cleaning skills weren’t so bad when I was raising my children. Most of those years I worked part time, or was able to be a stay at home mom. I kept a fairly tidy house and kept a vegetable garden. I made lots of jam, some pickles and I baked a lot. I had time to be a cub scout leader, a baseball scorekeeper and I was on several board of directors for not-for-profit child related organizations. These occupations made me a typical Julian mom. That’s what we were like in the 1980s and early 1990s. These days I work 7 days each week, 6 of them are in my shop, though the hours vary each day. I write my weekly newspaper column and I deliver the Julian News to Ramona businesses one day each week while I fit in my errands and appointments. Before and after work I sometimes sew, I cook dinner most nights, I wash laundry and sweep my porches. At home I make a lot of items to sell in my gift shop. When I get home from wherever I’ve driven, I plop things down. Sometimes I get to plop them into gift bags, but mostly they end up on any nearby flat surface. Did I mention the volunteer work that I love doing? I volunteer twice each month for Feeding America and two days each month at our local Julian Methodist Church for Mountain Manna, our food distribution program. In between I enjoy my time with my husband Mike. When people ask me about our vacations; I tell them that our vacations last as long as a restaurant dinner each week. Then we go back home to the work that we love. I have a long list of excuses not to do any house cleaning, but mostly I just don’t know how and also, I get distracted much too easily. I begin to pick things up so I can put them into their proper places, then the distractions come to play. One day I planned to straighten up my dining room. I had no other room to store excess things, so I decided that shelves seemed to be a good idea, so I found milk crates, hosed them off until they were clean and when they were dry, I spray painted them. I couldn’t paint them until I bought the paint. A few days later when the crates were painted and dry, I placed them against a dining room wall. I decided that the shelves would look neater if I placed the contents in boxes. Then I got an even better idea. I found about 8 boxes that were about the same size and I covered them with matching contact paper. Matching boxes are better than different looking boxes. This all took a lot of time because I waited for one of my Ramona trips to buy the spray paint and on a different Ramona trip I found just the right contact paper. Once I had accumulated all of my supplies Enough time had passed to allow more things to find their way in there, so I had much more stuff to deal with. I really do try to keep up with the piles of papers and other ephemera that we both collect because of our businesses. But I’m not any good at it. Mike thinks that the word ephemera is better than saying that we keep useless trash, but I believe, I really believe, that if we thought anything in this house was useless, we would actually throw it out. This is me being optimistic. My sister-in-law keeps an uncluttered house because she has a long standing habit of picking up items that don’t belong in a particular room as she walks through and then dropping them off in the room where they belong. Ultimately this makes her house cleaning duties easy and organized. Mike and I seem to own a lot of things that are needed, but we only make piles in different rooms if we move them. I recently saw a magnet that said” All I want for Christmas are the house cleaning elves.” I totally agree. These are my thoughts.

Christmas Stockings Origins and Trivia There was a kindly nobleman whose wife had died of an illness leaving the nobleman and hisChristmas stocking three daughters in despair. After losing all his money in useless and bad inventions the family had to move into a peasant's cottage, where the daughters did their own cooking, sewing and cleaning. When it came time for the daughters to marry, the father became even more depressed as his daughters could not marry without dowries, money and property given to the new husband's family. One night after the daughters had washed out their clothing they hung their stockings over the fireplace to dry. That night Saint Nicholas, knowing the despair of the father, stopped by the nobleman's house. Looking in the window Saint Nicholas saw that the family had gone to bed. He also noticed the daughters stockings. Inspiration struck Saint Nicholas and he took three small bags of gold from his pouch and threw them one by one down the chimney and they landed in the stockings. The next morning when the daughters awoke they found their stockings contained enough gold for them to get married. The nobleman was able to see his three daughters marry and he lived a long and happy life. This is where we received the tradition of hanging christmas stockings for kids. Children all over the world continue the tradition of hanging Christmas stockings. In some countries children have similar customs, in France the children place their shoes by the fireplace, a tradition dating back to when children wore wooden peasant shoes. In Holland the children fill their shoes with hay and a carrot for the horse of Sintirklass. In Hungary children shine their shoes before putting them near the door or a window sill. Italian children leave their shoes out the night before Epiphany, continued on page 12

Chef’s Corner Herbal Vinegars Make Great Gifts Herbal vinegars are a wonderful gift from the kitchen. They’re delicious when sprinkled on salads, vegetables or broiled meats. You can use either fresh or dried herbs, or fresh or frozen fruit when preparing the vinegars. Pouring heated vinegar over herbs that have been slightly crushed helps extract the flavor of the herbs. Almost any type of vinegar with at least 5 percent acidity may be used, except malt vinegar. The flavor of malt vinegar is too strong to blend well with herbs or fruits. After preparation, herbal vinegars should be stored for one to three weeks in a cool, dark place to allow the flavors to mingle. Herbal vinegars will keep indefinitely, and they make great homemade gifts. (Do not make herbal oils for gifts. Unlike commercial oils, homemade herbal oils lack enough acidity to preserve them. Homemade herbal

oils also tend to turn rancid and may cause botulism.) Decorative bottles like those used for wine or bottled water are perfect containers for your herbal vinegars. Sterilize the bottles or jars with boiling water before using them. Line bottle caps or jar

lids with a piece of foil, or place a piece of foil over the mouth of the jar or bottle to prevent the cap from rusting. Bottles with a cork or cruets also are perfect containers. Place a decorative label on the bottle or jar describing the herbal ingredients used. Containers may be decorated by tying a raffia bow, a few herb sprigs or dried flowers around the neck of the bottle or jar. Wrapping strands of brightly colored yarn or strips of festive wrapping paper that have been dipped in glue also add a decorative touch. HERBAL VINEGAR 2 cups vinegar (distilled white, cider or wine) 4 to 6 tablespoons of fresh or dried herbs (tarragon, chive, basil, marjoram, dill, sage, rosemary, savory, mustard or bay leaves, in combination or alone) continued on page 12

Swan Planters Q: I have four swan planters that are marked "Hull." I bought them at a thrift shop for $150 for the set. They seem to be in excellent shape. I am enclosing pictures. What are your thoughts? -- Maryanne, Tyler, Texas A: The Hull Pottery Company produced many novelty items depicting fowl, but swans probably became the most widely produced design. The swans came in various sizes. I found your swans in "Warman's Hull Pottery: Identification & Price Guide" by David Doyle and published by Krause Books. According to Doyle, your planters are worth $10 to $25 each. *** Q: I inherited my uncle's record collection, which includes discs from the early years of the past century. Most are opera or classical selections, and some are recorded only on one side of the disc. Is there a market for them? -- Jane, via e-mail A: Probably not. Most acoustical recordings from this period have very little value. For example, there is the mistaken belief that all Caruso recordings on Victor are priceless. They aren't. In fact, many are only worth a dollar or two each. On

the Zonophone label, however, Caruso is worth his weight in gold. I suggest you donate the recordings to a charity. *** Q: I bought a Jadite spice set at a flea market for $10. It was so cheap, I'm having doubts about it being authentic. -- Sarah, Phoenix, Arizona A: Although only an expert can determine if your Jadite is fake or the real McCoy, this type of pale green, opaque glass has been mass-produced in both China and the United States since 1999. You might want to consult the "Guide to Fakes & Reproductions," 4th edition, by Mark Chervenka, published by KP Books. It has a lengthy chapter, complete with illustrations, documenting Jadite and the reproductions that are flooding marketplaces throughout the country. *** Q: I have several thousand matchbook covers. How can I find out how much they are worth? -- Niles, Palmetto, Florida A: One of the better reference books is "The Matchcover Collector's Price Guide: The Comprehensive Reference Book and Price Guide to Matchcovers" by Bill Retskin, now in its 2nd edition. ***

Santa Claus History In The USA Begins 4 Centuries Ago

$475,000 From The Supervisor’s Desk

Notes from Supervisor Dianne Jacob

1600's: The Puritans made it illegal to mention St. Nicolas' name. People were not allowed to exchange gifts, light a candle, or sing Christmas carols 17th century: Dutch immigrants brought with them the legend of Sinter Klaas. 1773: Santa first appeared in the media as St. A Claus. 1804: The New York Historical Society was founded with St. Nicolas as its patron saint. Its members engaged in the Dutch practice of giftgiving at Christmas. 1809: Washington Irving, writing under the pseudonym Diedrich Knickerbocker, included Saint Nicolas in his book "A History of New York." Nicolas is described as riding into town on a horse. 1812: Irving, revised his book to include Nicolas riding over the trees in a wagon. 1821: William Gilley printed a poem about "Santeclaus" who was dressed in fur and drove a sleigh drawn by a single reindeer. 1822: Dentist Clement Clarke Moore is believed by many to have written a poem "An Account of a Visit from Saint Nicolas," which became better known as "The Night before Christmas." Santa is portrayed as an elf with a miniature sleigh equipped with eight reindeer which are named in the poem as Blitzem, Comet, Cupid, Dancer, Dasher, Donder, 1841: J.W. Parkinson, a Philadelphia merchant, hired a man to dress up in a "Criscringle" outfit and climb the chimney of his store. 1863: Illustrator Thomas Nast created images of Santa for the Christmas editions of Harper's Magazine. These continued through the 1890's. 1860s: President Abraham Lincoln asked Nast to create a drawing of continued on page 10

Ratepayer relief: I’ve said it for years – consumers deserve more energy options. We need to end SDG&E's stranglehold on the energy market and offer ratepayers the freedom of choice. That’s why I think our region should take a serious look at what is called “community choice aggregation,” which would allow communities to band together to provide ratepayers with alternatives to SDG&E. It’s being done right now in other counties and many ratepayers appear to be benefitting. I know SDG&E and Sempra executives are hell-bent on protecting their monopoly, but providing real competition is great for ratepayers and our local economy. Meth means death: Nearly a decade ago, I led efforts to create the region’s Meth Strike Force. We’ve made huge progress rooting out local meth manufacturers, thanks to law enforcement, but we must keep up the fight as Mexican drug cartels work to smuggle the substance into San Diego. We will continue to do all we can to stem the tide of this terrible drug into our communities. Community treasures: I recently teamed up with Supervisor Ron Roberts to plant the seed of an idea – and we’re hoping it takes root. Thanks to a proposal we brought to the Board of Supervisors, the county is looking at creating incentives to encourage community gardens and city farming. County staff was asked to return with a detailed plan in a few months. Community gardens are good for our health and good for our neighborhoods!

In the first few hundred years of the first millennium much of the area of the Mediterranean to the north of Africa and west of the middle east was considered to be Greece or at least under Greek influence. To narrow down the area of this story, the ancient, small town of Myra is now called Demre. It is now in present day Turkey on the Mediterranean due east of the island of Rhodes and northeast of the island of Cyprus. To narrow it down even further Myra was located between modern day Finike and Kas. Okay, now that we’re all up to speed location wise (not), the object of this story is Nicholas whose last name is very Greek, has lots of vowels and in my research the spelling is so varied that for now Nicholas of Myra as he was known later in life will be referred to as just Nicholas. He was born in 280 A.D. in Patara and by all accounts, was born into a family of means and deep Christian devotion. His parents moved to Myra and died when Nicholas was young. He being the only heir inherited their wealth. Nicholas was raised by an uncle who was a Bishop. He educated him in the ways of the Church and eventually ordained him as a Priest. Nicholas used his money to aid the poor. As a devout Catholic Priest, Nicholas eventually became the Bishop of Myra. His charity, gift giving, intercession on behalf of the condemned and the legend and lore of his presiding over resurrections, and the miracle of wheat multiplication grew after his death. In his time, he was known to

Pe

leave coins in the shoes of the poor that were left out at night in their doorways. One of his wellknown acts of charity occurred by aiding a poor man who had three daughters but not enough money for the dowry of any of them. In those days young women without a dowry couldn’t hope to marry and at times led them to a life of prostitution. Nicholas of Myra was a modest man and to save the father of the three girls the humiliation of charity, he went to their house late at night and threw three purses of gold coins through a window for the purpose of providing a dowry for the man’s daughters. So the legend goes. A miracle attributed to Nicholas has him confronting a butcher who murdered three children and stuffed them into a barrel to cure and would eventually sell for meat to the hungry. Religious lore has Nicholas praying for their soles and resurrects them. The miracle of “Wheat Multiplication” occurred when Nicholas was in his early thirties. Crops in the region around Myra failed causing widespread famine. A ship loaded with wheat bound for Constantinople came to port in Myra. Nicholas pleaded with the sailors for a portion of the wheat assuring them as a man of God, they would not suffer any reduction of their load. The sailors agreed and at their offloading in Constantinople, the weight of their load was indeed intact. The amount of wheat offloaded in Myra was enough for two years of consumption for a hungry people. Nicholas, now a Bishop continued his life of modesty and benefactor of children and the poor. He was revered by sailors and fisherman and is the Patron Saint of cities with harbors throughout the world. He was often known as Nicholas the Wonder Worker. He died on December 6, 343 but the fame of his acts of charity and miracles spread throughout the world. Around 1050 invading Turks caused Christians to fear that pilgrimage to the tomb of Nicholas may be compromised. Both the city of Bari and Venice in Italy were competing for the relocation of Nicholas’s relics (bones). In 1087 sailors from

Turkey has recently made formal request to have the relics returned. Saint Nicholas came to America in large part due to the Dutch (Sinterklass) and Germans (Sankt Niklaus) as well as the English (Sante Claus). He began to be Americanized in the 1820’s in writings by Washington Irving and by illustrators, particularly Thomas Nast of Harper’s Weekly. By mid-century, Santa Claus appeared in print much as we envision him today. Saint Nicholas was never officially canonized, as the process didn’t exist until the 1200s. Pope Paul the VI declared him a Saint on December 5, 1970. Much of the world celebrates Nicholas on December 6th (Saint Nicholas Feast Day) as he is venerated by many of the world’s religions including many Protestant and Orthodox sects. Over the centuries many observances and holidays have been merged into one to accommodate different beliefs and so has the tribute and celebration of Saint Nicholas. Through his good works and kindly gifts it is nice to know that his personage is portrayed by that kindly, old elf, Santa Claus. Though Santa Claus as we know him today may only be a vestige of Saint Nicholas, it is nice to know that he is the incarnation of a man, a legend and a Saint that was so Christlike in his deeds and his love for his people. Whether you celebrate Christmas, Chanukah, Quanza or Festivus this time of year, it’s easy to celebrate someone like Nicholas.

Dear EarthTalk: What do green groups think about the outcome of the recent Paris climate talks? -- Jackie Lupinacci, Pittsburgh, PA On December 12, 2015, 195 countries assembled at the COP21 Climate Conference in Paris produced a 32-page agreement outlining goals to phase out industrial carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. All countries agreed on “holding the increase in the global average temperature to well below 2 degrees Celsius above preindustrial levels and pursuing efforts to limit the temperature increase to 1.5 degrees Celsius.” Each country submitted a voluntary pledge for cutting its CO2 emissions, known as an “intended nationally determined contribution,” or INDC. These pledges are not strong enough

to achieve the two degree target, but countries involved are required to monitor and report their emissions data, which will be reviewed every five years, and are expected to update their emissions reductions over time. “While the Paris commitments won’t deliver all the emissions reductions that are needed, the agreement provides a framework to ratchet up ambition over time: a transparent system for reporting and review, regular assessments of progress, and strengthening of commitments every five years beginning in 2020,” said Fred Krupp, President of the Environmental Defense Fund

(EDF). “The agreement relies on each nation to enact its own policies to reduce emissions while ensuring that their progress can be monitored by all. We look forward to each country’s work to both meet and build on their pledges in order to finish the hard work of protecting future generations.” But distant promises standing in for present-day pledges adequate enough to achieve the agreement’s temperature goals have left many green groups disappointed. In a statement issued shortly after the release of the final agreement, Bill McKibben, co-founder of 350. org, said: “Every government seems now to recognize the fossil fuel era must end, and soon. But the power of the fossil fuel industry is reflected in the text, which drags out the transition so far that endless climate damage will be done. Since pace is the crucial question now, activists must redouble our efforts to weaken that industry.” Kumi Naidoo, executive director

of Greenpeace International, reflected post-Paris that a continued, unrelenting push for clean, renewable fuels by green groups is crucial. “When it comes to forcing real, meaningful action, Paris fails to meet the moment,” Naidoo said. “We have a 1.5-degree wall to climb, but the ladder isn’t long enough… To pull us free of fossil fuels we are going to need to mobilize in ever greater numbers…We will push our beautifully simple solution to climate change—100 percent renewable energy for all—and make sure it is heard and embraced.” In addition to green group backlash, the Paris agreement was openly condemned in recent press and by former NASA scientist James Hansen, who called it “fraud,” yet some remain optimistic that the conversion to sustainable energy is inevitable. Michael Burger, executive director of the Sabin Center for Climate Change Law at Columbia Law School, told ThinkProgress: “The leaders of the world recognize that the consequences of noncompliance are disastrous. We are looking at the wholesale transformation of our global climate. The main incentive here for compliance is not the threat of some civil penalty—non-compliance would mean environmental disaster.” CONTACTS: EDF, www.edf.org;

4 Centuries Of Santa continued from page 7 Santa with some Union soldiers. This image of Santa supporting the enemy had a demoralizing influence on the Confederate army -- an early example of psychological warfare. 1897: Francis P Church, Editor of the New York Sun, wrote an editorial in response to a letter from an eight year-old girl, Virginia O'Hanlon. She had written the paper asking whether there really was a Santa Claus. It has become known as the "Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus" letter.4 1920's: The image of Santa had been standardized to portray a bearded, over-weight, jolly man dressed in a red suit with white trim.5 1931: Haddon Sundblom, illustrator for The Coca-Cola ™ company drew a series of Santa images in their Christmas advertisements until 1964. The company holds the trademark for the Coca-Cola Santa design. Christmas ads including Santa continue to the present day. 1939: Copywriter Robert L. May of the Montgomery Ward Company created a poem about Rudolph, the ninth reindeer. May had been "often taunted as a child for being shy, small and slight." He created an ostracized reindeer with a shiny red nose who became a hero one foggy Christmas eve. Santa was partway through deliveries when the visibility started to degenerate. Santa added Rudolph to his team of reindeer to help illuminate the path. A copy of the poem was given free to Montgomery Ward

customers.6 1949: Johnny Marks wrote the song "Rudolph the RedNosed Reindeer." Rudolph was relocated to the North Pole where he was initially rejected by the other reindeer who wouldn't let him play in their reindeer games because of his strange looking nose. The song was recorded by Gene Autry and became his alltime best seller. Next to "White Christmas" it is the most popular song of all time. 1993: An urban folk tale began to circulate about a Japanese department store displaying a life-sized Santa Claus being crucified on a cross. It never happened. 1997: Artist Robert Cenedella drew a painting of a crucified Santa Claus. It was displayed in the window of the New York's Art Students League and received intense criticism from some religious groups. His drawing was a protest. He attempted to show how Santa Claus had replaced Jesus Christ as the most important personality at Christmas time.7 References: 1. Barbara G. Walker, "The Woman's Encyclopedia of Myths and Secrets."

California Commentary

Tenacity Is The Secret To Taxpayer Success by Jon Coupal After the passage of Proposition 13, Howard Jarvis became even more popular with average citizens. He would joke that overnight he went from being regarded as a “nut” by the political elites to being seen as a “savior” for millions of California homeowners. Visitors to Howard’s office would praise him for coming up with Proposition 13 just when it was so desperately needed. But Howard would just smile and point out that he had been working on property tax reform for 16 years. Howard was tenacious and a big believer in the power of people when they combined together to make change. When speaking to groups he would hold up his hand with his fingers extended and say that while separately they were weak, united they were strong and he would form his hand into a fist. Some will remember seeing the photo of Howard holding up his fist on the cover of Time Magazine. However, Howard understood that it was necessary to start small. His first taxpayer group meeting was attended by only twenty ordinary citizens — no celebrities, no politicians — just regular folks concerned that if the trend of ever escalating property taxes continued, they would lose their homes. Howard would say that people who want to reform government don’t have to wait for somebody else to lead them. “You don’t need a campaign manager to lead you; you can be your own campaign manager and lead yourself,” he wrote. “The brains and capacities of the citizens of the United States are invariably greater than the brains and the capacities of bureaucracy – now misnamed government.” For taxpayers, the key to success, Howard believed, could be summed up in the words of James E. Byrnes, Secretary of State in the Truman Administration, who said, “I discovered at an early age that most of the difference between average people and great people can be explained in three

words: ‘And then some.’” Howard attributed the eventual success of the Tax Revolt to the fact that his fellow taxpayer activists did what was expected, “And then some.” Although Howard passed in 1986, his spirit lives on in thousands of Californians who give of their time and energy to push for more economical and efficient government. To remind the public of these unsung heroes, the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association annually presents the Taxfighter of the Year Award. This year’s recipient is Ourania Riddle, a 30 year member of the Solano County Taxpayers Association, who witnessed the unelected State Water Resources Control Board running roughshod over the rights of taxpayers in her hometown of Dixon, and decided to take action. Her lobbying helped to assure passage of a state law that would allow Dixon to comply with water regulations and avoid penalties of $10,000 a day. When the city determined a major water rate increase was in order, Ourania and her friends succeeded in gathering enough signatures to place a measure on the ballot to rescind the increase. Although a Court subsequently ruled that the taxpayers’ effort to use the power of initiative was invalid, Ourania and her cohorts succeeded in changing state law and putting Dixon officials on notice that its taxpayers are organized and are carefully watching costs. We at HJTA thank Ourania and all those unsung taxpayer heroes throughout the state who improve our lives by volunteering to act as watchdogs over government spending and who prod government to make more efficient use of taxpayers’ dollars. The spirit of Howard Jarvis lives on in the actions of these outstanding California taxpayers who are willing to do what is expected, “and then some.” 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 beloved American singer, songwriter and musician Ray Charles who made the following sage observation: "Marriage is like college; as great as it is, it ain't for everybody." * Those who study such things say that when a llama is humming, that means it's content. * If you think life in the Big Apple is tough these days, consider this: In the 1930s, landlords evicted about 17,000 tenants every month. * It's the little details that can make or break a plan. A pair of aspiring bank robbers in Daytona Beach, Florida, walked into a bank, pulled out guns, demanded that a teller hand over the loot, and even made it out of the building. The problem came when they got in their getaway car; the engine sputtered and died almost immediately. It seems someone had forgotten to fill up the gas tank. * The gray squirrel isn't always gray; these arboreal rodents also come in both black and white varieties. * Sharks have been known to attack boats before, but they rarely, if ever, try for a second bite -- regardless of what Hollywood would have you believe. When a shark goes for a boat, it's a case of mistaken identity: electrical impulses from the metal of a ship's hull make the shark think that the boat is another animal (that is to say: dinner). * If you're fond of fancy cocktails, you probably won't be surprised to learn that the words "mai tai" are actually Tahitian for "the very best." *** Thought for the Day: "I would rather try to persuade a man to go along, because once I have persuaded him he will stick.

1. If using fresh herbs, rinse them and pat dry with a paper towel. Bruise herbs with a mortar and pestle or by rolling over them once or twice with a rolling pin. Place herbs in a sterilized jar. 2. In a small, non-corrosive saucepan, heat vinegar until it is warm to the touch, but not hot. If using a microwave, place vinegar in a glass bowl and heat on low power for about 30 seconds. Pour the vinegar over the herbs. Let the mixture cool. 3. Place a piece of foil over the mouth of the jar and seal it tightly. Label the jar and place the herbal vinegar in a cool, dark place for at least 7 days and up to 3 weeks so that the flavors have a chance to mingle. 4. After the flavors have infused, place several layers of cheesecloth inside a funnel and strain the vinegar into a sterilized bottle or jar. Leave at least an inch free at the top of the bottle if inserting a cork or glass stopper. Makes 2 cups.

doggie are friends.” “Yes, I think you are right,” she agreed as she somehow knew the dog sitting in the front seat was concerned for the injured dog in the back. Minutes later they arrived at the closest vet office they could find as a light rain was falling. “Hope they are still open and they didn’t close early for Christmas Eve,” Laurie thought to herself. “Artie, Mille,” she asked, “can you get out and go open the front door to the vet’s office?” Both children ran to the front door and opened it as Laurie felt a sigh of relief to see they were not closed for the day. Laurie gently picked up the lame Yorkie and took the dog into the office. She didn’t notice that another car had just pulled into the parking lot. A few moments after entering the waiting room a receptionist came out from the back. “May I help you?” she asked. “We found this little dog on the road after it was hit by a car,” Laurie explained. “Oh my,” the receptionist frowned, “bring him into that examination room right over there and someone will be in shortly.” “Can you let us borrow a leash and a collar?” Laurie asked. “We have another dog in the car that we found with this one and we need to bring him in.” “No problem,” the receptionist replied. “Let me get a leash and I will go out and get the other dog.” Laurie gave her the car key and then took the Yorkie into the examination room. Within a minute or so, a vet technician came in the room and did a quick assessment. “I’ll be right back,” the vet tech said as she left the room.

a moment to speak with the receptionist before returning to the examination room. “The doctor will be in shortly,” the vet tech said. Laurie, Artie, Millie, and the vet tech surrounded the hurt Yorkie, trying to comfort him the best they could. “Hello,” the white-coated veterinarian said, entering the small room. “What do we have here?” The vet did a quick examination. “Let’s get some x-rays and some bloodwork. Looks like his back leg is broken,” the vet explains. “We will also get him something for pain,” the vet assures Laurie. “We will know more once we get the x-rays and bloodwork results.” The vet tech took the dog to another back room and Laurie, Artie, and Mille returned to the now empty waiting room, except for the second leashed dog Laurie rescued. After a while, the vet tech returned. “We should know more in a few minutes,” the vet tech acknowledged. “I am so lucky you were still open,” Laurie said gratefully. “Well, we were supposed to close about 30 minutes ago,” the vet tech replied. “Oh, sorry we are keeping you,” Laurie apologized. “Don’t worry about it. The other staff has left for the day, so it’s me, our receptionist, and the doctor,” the vet tech said. A fter about another 30 minutes, the vet returned. “Well, we have some good news. It looks like he is going to be ok after some recovery time. He has a broken leg, an infection, and some bruising. Everything considered, he is one lucky dog,” the vet explained. “We also checked for a microchip and there wasn’t one. Unfortunately, this time of year a lot of people will dump their dogs around here,” the vet sighed. “Yes,” Laurie agreed, “we saw a car stop and throw him and this other dog out of the car and leave.” “I was afraid of that,” the vet

January 5, for La Befana the good witch. And in Puerto Rico children put greens and flowers in small boxes and place them under their beds for the camels of the Three Kings. The first mention Christmas stockings being hung from or near a chimney were made only earlier this century by the illustrator, Thomas Nast, through his pictures and the writer, Clement Moore, in a story about a 'visit from St.Nick'. The story quickly caught on. "The stockings were hung by the chimney with care In hopes that Saint Nicholas soon would be there" Up until lately, it was traditional to receive small items like fruit, nuts and candy in your stocking, but these have been replaced in the last half-century by more expensive gifts in many homes.

approached. “Ummm …” she hesitated, “I was wondering about the bill for all of this …” “ Oh, I completely forgot to tell you,” the receptionist interrupted, “that man that came in after you has paid for everything including the follow-ups.” “What?” Laurie asked, confused. “I don’t understand.” “He said that his dog was hit by a car on Christmas Eve a few years ago and nobody stopped to help him,” the receptionist explained. “The poor dog ran out the front door when someone had broken in to their house. Hours later, he found his dog beside the road, still barely alive. He brought him in here, but too much time had passed and his dog passed away moments after they arrived. In fact, he told me today that the spot where you rescued this dog from is just a few feet away from where his dog was hit. Every Christmas Eve afternoon he revisits that spot to put a flower beside the road where his dog was hit. He was on his way to do that when he saw you pick up the injured Yorkie, but you left before he could catch up to you.” “Wow, I don’t know what to say,” Laurie sighed. “When he left,” the receptionist added, “he said simply to tell you Merry Christmas.” Moments later, the bandaged Yorkie and the second rescued dog appeared, ready to go home. The vet tech explained the medications and went over the care instructions for the Yorkie. “See you next time for your follow-up,” the receptionist said. “Merry Christmas.” “Thank you so much,” Laurie said gratefully. “Merry Christmas to you too.” “All right guys, are we ready to go home?” Laurie asked Artie, Millie, and the two dogs, Lucky and OK. Everyone headed out the front door. The rain had stopped and the skies cleared. When they reached the car, Artie looked up and smiled. “Look Mom,” he said excited, “there’s a rainbow!”

said shaking his head from side to side. There was a brief moment of silence and everyone looked at each other. “Mom,” both Artie and Millie asked almost in unison, “can we keep him?” Laurie thought for a moment, initially with reasons why they couldn’t keep one or both dogs. “In the slight chance they are someone else's dogs that were stolen or picked up and dumped, you could foster them for a while and if no responsible owner is found then you could keep them or foster them until a new home or a rescue group could be found,” the vet offered. “Please Mom,” Millie asked. “Please, please, please. It could be our Christmas present,” Artie added. “I guess we could keep them and see if the owner can be found,” Laurie decided as she looked at Artie and Millie. “But if an owner shows up who is really missing them, they will have to go to that home, ok?” “All right,” Artie replied. “It could be our Christmas present to them.” “We should call him Lucky,” Millie offered. “Yes,” Artie agreed, “and we could call the other doggie OK because he was ok when we found him.” “Sounds great,” the vet smiled. “We will check the other dog for a microchip and anything obvious. The Yorkie is bandaged up and we will send some meds home with him and instructions on how to care for him. You can bring him back in a couple of days for a follow-up.” Laurie smiled for a moment and then a reality check set in. “I don’t know how we are going to pay for all this,” she thought to herself and frowned. She sat down and thought about how she doesn’t have the money at the moment for all of this, especially considering what the bill was going to be for the injured Yorkie.
