This time of year should be a joyous, reflective fun, family time. But for many, the pressure of the holidays brings stress about what to buy for presents. While at the Christmas celebration at town hall, Santa was listening to all the wishes from the kids, and some adults! One little man who had all his wishes figured out, knew just what he wanted. He sat on Santa’s lap and told Santa his wishes. Santa got a real heartfelt look on his face. While his mommy was talking to Santa, he told her what the little man had asked for… there was the usual stuff! But most of all he told Santa he wanted a Christmas Tree, because “mommy really wants one.” Well, the next day, one of Santa’s helpers called mommy and said they had a line on a tree for them. The helpers were cutting down a cedar tree from in front of a local church! How perfect! Because of the little man’s wish, they had a Christmas tree, cut from the top of a beautifully blessed tree to use as their Christmas tree … sometimes, you see, wishes do come true! I Believe!

What Is Hanukkah? All The Info You Need To Know About Chanukah Chanukah is the Jewish eight-day, wintertime “festival of lights,” celebrated with a nightly menorah lighting, special prayers and fried foods. The Hebrew word Chanukah means “dedication,” and is thus named because it celebrates the rededication of the Holy Temple (as you’ll read below). Also spelled Hanukkah (or variations of that spelling), the Hebrew word is actually pronounced with a guttural, “kh” sound, kha-nu-kah, not tcha-new-kah. In the second century BCE, the Holy Land was ruled by the Seleucids (Syrian-Greeks), who tried to force the people of Israel to accept Greek culture and beliefs instead of mitzvah observance and belief in G-d. Against all odds, a small band of faithful Jews, led by Judah the Maccabee, defeated one of the mightiest armies on earth, drove the Greeks from the land, reclaimed the Holy Temple in Jerusalem and rededicated it to the service of G-d. When they sought to light the Temple's Menorah (the seven-branched candelabrum), they found only a single cruse of olive oil that had escaped contamination by the Greeks. Miraculously, they lit the menorah and the one-day supply of oil lasted for eight days, until new oil could be prepared under conditions of ritual purity. To commemorate and publicize these miracles, the sages instituted the festival of Chanukah. At the heart of the festival is the nightly menorah lighting. The menorah holds nine flames, one of which is the shamash

(“attendant”), which is used to kindle the other eight lights. On the first night, we light just one flame. On the second night, an additional flame is lit. By the eighth night of Chanukah, all eight lights are kindled. Special blessings are recited, often to a traditional melody, before the menorah is lit, and traditional songs are sung afterward. A menorah is lit in every household (or even by each individual within the household) and placed in a doorway or window. The menorah is also lit in synagogues and other public places. In recent years, thousands of jumbo menorahs have cropped up in front of city halls and legislative buildings, and in malls and parks all over the world. We recite the special Hallel prayer daily, and add V’Al HaNissim in our daily prayers and in the Grace After Meals, to offer praise and thanksgiving to G-d for “delivering the strong into the hands of the weak, the many into the hands of the few ... the wicked into the hands of the righteous.” Read the full menorah-lighting guide.<http://www.chabad.org/ holidays/chanukah/article_cdo/ aid/103868/jewish/How-to-Lightthe-Menorah.htm> Learn what to expect at a public menorah lighting.< http://www. chabad.org/holidays/chanukah/ article_cdo/aid/3144663/jewish/ What-to - Expect-at-a- Public Menorah-Lighting.htm> When Is Chanukah? December 24, 2016 - January 1, 2017. Chanukah begins on the eve

of Kislev 25 and continues for eight days. On the civil calendar, it generally coincides with the month of December. Since the Chanukah miracle involved oil, it is customary to eat foods fried in oil. The Eastern-

European classic is the potato latke (pancake) garnished with applesauce or sour cream, and the reigning Israeli favorite is the jelly-filled sufganya (doughnut). On Chanukah, it is customary to play with a “dreidel” (a four-

sided spinning top bearing the Hebrew letters, nun, gimmel, hei and shin, an acronym for nes gadol hayah sham, “a great miracle happened there”). The game is usually played for a pot of coins, nuts, or other stuff, which is won or lost based on which letter the dreidel lands when it is spun. In today’s consumer-driven society, people tend to place great importance on giving Chanukah gifts. However, the tradition is actually to give Chanukah gelt, gifts of money, to children. In addition to rewarding positive behavior and devotion to Torah study, the cash gifts give the children the opportunity to give tzedakah (charity). This has also spawned the phenomenon of foil-covered “chocolate gelt.”

You would not think that a lizard is responsible for this. But let me explain. A congressional district is the best way to demonstrate the point. Back in the days when our republic was youthful and naïve, congressional districts often centered on obvious clusters of voters, such as of the towns and their environs. Relatively unpopulated portions of the state were given, say, one to 10 districts, depending on the state’s size, all of which comprised some simple and vaguely recognizable shape, whether one would consider it to resemble a circle, a square, an oval, a rectangle, or even a cloud. Take Illinois’ 10th Congressional District in the 1970’s, which contained a mix of “pure” suburbs like Willmette and Northbrook, and inner-ring suburbs (think Brookline, MA) like Evanston and Skokie. The district included factory owners, business men, union members, members of our military, policemen, firemen, school teachers, and one or more colleges or secondary schools, together with residents of greatly varying degrees of income. Of course, all of these groups placed many, varied, and contradictory demands upon a congressional candidate, as though these were cross-currents in a stormy sea. If you took any part in congressional politics at this time and place, you knew that, in order to win the district, an aspiring member of Congress had to weigh and take account of as many of the foregoing demands as possible to win a seat. He or she could not be too liberal because of the policemen, firemen, the military and the businessmen in the district. He or she could not be too much of a laissez faire capitalist because of the teachers, college students and union members in the town. The list goes on. In the end, he or she had to take positions that were least harmful to many of the local factions, and positions which were most likely to carry forward some common agenda of the majority of voters. The Illinois 10th Congressional District changed hands between Democrats and Republicans multiple times as the 70’s progressed, driven by “swing” voters. The besieged congressional candidate had to puzzle all of the foregoing competing groups in a tug-of-war battle with his opponent, or lose to her if she had done a better job of it. Is it any wonder that these districts produced more members of Congress who were centrists, pragmatists and problem solvers? In participating in the scrum for this congressional seat, the candidate is performing an extremely valuable function in a democratic form of government: The political-science phrase for this is aggregation of political demands. Not everyone’s wishes can be accommodated on the national level. It was the job of the candidate to weigh and aggregate those various demands of the voters and try to arrive at a consensus for the good of the greater number. To do otherwise was to risk a loss in the district. Note that the tug-of-war or head banging in these examples is taking place at the local (congressional district) level - not at the next level, in the U.S. House of Representatives. It did not take political animals long in our early republic to gain some useful insights. Once upon a time in the state of Massachusetts, the Jeffersonian Republicans, who were in power there, were designing state senatorial districts. They reckoned that they could divvy up voters for their party so that there were just enough Jeffersonians allocated to each district to assure a winning edge in the majority of the districts. Left over and unwanted non-Jeffersonian voters could then be impounded (my phrase) into one or two districts, where they resided in overwhelming numbers and the result was a foregone

2602 Washington St • 760 765 1675 conclusion. Very neat. Since Jeffersonian and non-Jeffersonian voters did not clump together in any regular fashion, the carving up of state senatorial districts had to be flexible and highly creative. One of the districts created looked like some medieval monster with a long sinuous reptilian body, an angular head and numerous toes and claws. Some joked that it looked like a salamander. Since Elbridge Gerry, an honorable man and one of the founding fathers, reluctantly approved it as the governor of Massachusetts, one of the local editors called it a “Gerry-mander.” The rest was history as they say, and poor old Eldridge’s name became ever after associated with a negative concept, just like Thomas Crapper’s. As gerrymandering has proceeded and become an art, why seek compromise with the congressional Republicans when your district contains enough Democratic voters to assure you a comfortable margin in the next election? And vice versa. And why ever continued on page 14

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 leave coins in the shoes of the poor that were left out at night in their doorways. One of his well-known 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 the children’s 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 off loading in Constantinople, the weight of their load was indeed intact. The amount of wheat off loaded 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 Bari took most of the relics from the tomb and in 1100 the rest were taken to Venice. 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 Christ-like 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. Merry Christmas and great holidays to you all from the American Legion Family and from me, Bic… I mean Bill. And a blessed Leon to all my dyslexic friends.

Imaginative Gift Ideas For Toddlers And Preschoolers (StatePoint) Some of the best holiday gifts for toddlers and preschoolers are those that inspire imaginative play. “Gift-giving for this age group should reflect the tremendous opportunity that play time offers for supporting early childhood development,” says Dr. Lise Eliot, early brain development expert and member of the Expert Panel at VTech, a world leader in ageappropriate and developmental stage-based electronic learning products for children.

For young children, make the holidays count. Great gifts can be both educational and fun. With that in mind, here are some fun gift ideas that will add value to children’s play time. Arts and Crafts Inspire creativity and foster fine motor skills with gifts for budding young artists. Watercolor sets, finger paint, stencils and markers are great age-appropriate selections. Just be sure any art supplies are non-toxic and washable. A great gift set idea? A blank smock and fabric paint -- kids can design their own artist’s smock, which will inspire them to do even more art projects in the future. Offer to hang or frame your children’s favorite creations so they can proudly see them on display. Thoughtful Toys Choose toys that are safe, fun and engaging. For example, the Go! Go! Smart line of toys from VTech features its innovative technologies that bring the toys to life, letting children explore cause and effect relationships while teaching first words, letters and more. Consider the Go! Go! Smart Wheels Treasure Mountain Train Adventure, which allows kids to discover spatial play by building train tracks, and features its first motorized train that can climb hills on its own. When the train is placed over one of the nine “SmartPoint” locations on the playset, it will respond with lights, sounds and music. Toddlers can create a whole kingdom featuring princesses, princes, fairies and unicorns with Go! Go! Smart Friends playsets, encouraging children to discover through imaginative play while building motor and language skills. Even more stimulating activity is encouraged with the turning telescope, swinging hammock, and secret trap door found in the Go! Go! Smart Animals Happy Paws Playland. For more information, visit vtechkids.com. “The vehicles, animals and characters spark children’s imaginations while keeping them engaged, promoting listening skills and encouraging their fine motor and cognitive development,” says Dr. Eliot. Learning Experiences The big wide world offers plenty of opportunities for fun and learning, so consider gifting an experience. Whether it’s a puppet show, a day of exploration at the zoo or aquarium, or hands-on learning workshop at a children’s museum, the experience will not soon be forgotten!

Fire And Fireplace Safety Tips For The Holiday Season

(StatePoint) The holiday season is full of family, friendship and good cheer, but it’s important to keep in mind that this time of year can also pose specific safety risks, particularly around the use of candles, fire and heating products. In 2015, one home structure fire was reported every 86 seconds, according to the National Fire Protection Association. Unfortunately, the hustle and bustle associated with this time of year may mean you are paying less attention to safety precautions. To protect your family and home, check out these tips. Safety Devices Double check all of your home’s safety devices, including carbon monoxide detectors and smoke alarms for functionality and to ensure batteries are still working. Doing so will offer you greater peace of mind during a time of year with additional fire risks. Fireplaces Nothing beats the charm and warmth of a fireplace, particularly around the holidays when the family is gathered together. Heatilator, a leader in fireplace safety and the number one fireplace brand used by homebuilders, began including safety screens as standard equipment more than a decade before rules required the use of this equipment in new fireplace installations. As a pioneer in the field of fireplace safety, they offer these tips: • Ensure gas fireplaces are outfitted with safety screens. Check out Heatilator, which offers retrofit safety screens. • Never leave children or pets unattended near a lit fireplace or one that was recently turned off. Safety screens are meant to protect against contact with hot glass, but remember that the metal can also heat up, and your heating equipment -- fireplaces, stoves, inserts and their surrounding material -- will remain hot for some time after use. • Ensure gifts, trees, and holiday décor are all placed a safe distance away from the fireplace. • Consider annual maintenance for both wood-burning and gas fireplaces, as recommended by experts. • Learn more by visiting heatilator.com for additional fireplace safety tips and to learn about safety screens. Candles Candles can be a feast for the senses, but they are also a major cause of accidents and house fires, especially when your home is decked out with extra combustible décor. Don’t burn candles near curtains, trees and other flammable objects. Never leave candles unattended. Ensure all flames are extinguished before leaving a room and before going to sleep. If you have pets or children, make sure any open flames are well out of their reach and consider alternatives such as candle warmers. The greatest holiday gift you can give this season is the gift of safety. While decking the halls, take steps to make your home safer, too.

Joe Rathburn is a lifetime full time musician, hailing from San Diego, California. Joe’s music can be placed in the genre called Positive Music. His tunes have purpose, and carry with them more than just chord changes, grooves, catchy melodies, and hooks for the sake of their cool factor. They speak to the heart and mind of the listener directly. They uplift the soul in an instantly tangible way, while remaining fun, interesting, and non-preachy. Joe’s music can also be likened to the singer/songwriters of the 1960s and ‘70s: the Paul Simon, James Taylor, Cat Stevens variety, yet his has a quality all his own which, though paying homage, never copies. Joe loves cruzin’ up the hill, to play at the tree lighting, the library or frequent visits to Wynola, this Friday he’ll be in the well decorated Red Barn for a three hour performance starting at six. Bring the kids, bring your voices and sing along to what will surely be a great kickoff to the Christmas weekend.

Corruption, Know Your Enemy “In Romania these days you’re not innocent until proven guilty. You’re guilty until proven innocent… and you’re not going to be proven innocent.” A senior Romanian criminal attorney It’s not exactly a normal sightseeing tour, going to two prisons, but it is certainly…interesting. Informative. Important to the people visited. So, two weeks, two prisons, two friends behind glass, many attorneys and several others in an attempt to help at least three people who are in Romanian prisons. One of the prisons is outside of Ploiesti, more rudimentary, maybe not smaller but the number of visitors was small on the day we went. It was the day of the month when Roxana could bring food to her father—the daily amount the Government provides to pay for a prisoner’s food is about 85 cents and that doesn’t buy much more in Romania than it does in the United States. She and I stood in the weak sunshine outside the gates with her full shopping bags. The gates opened and we were called in. We went through security and walked across a courtyard to a back building, then in to an area with telephones so you could talk through glass, like those on TV shows. Liviu came to other side, tall, weak after 22 days of a hunger strike to protest conditions for himself and others. His daughter wept when he told her he was breaking his fast; she had been afraid he would die. It wasn’t clear what concessions there were but, knowing Liviu, there were some. We talked. We were called to give the food to the guards who took it through one window, searched everything, then carried it over to give to Liviu through another window who put it back in the bags to take to his solitary cell. I brought books, there were also clean clothes and paper and pens which passed—they had been refused several times before. Liviu’s daughter picked up his dirty clothes to take home and wash. Rahova in Bucharest is bigger but the routine was much the same except Emilia and I were able to wait inside with the many other families. And the cells are heated during the day (it is below freezing these days, perhaps a degree or two above in the early afternoon) unlike Ploiesti. Like Ploiesti there was a disproportionate number of gypsies waiting to see their family members inside. The prison guard wouldn’t take some of the food—not allowed under the rules. Books went through, warm clothes. Adrian shares a cell with three others much like him, professionals, intellectuals, decent people, all there on corruption charges. Boredom wasn’t as much a problem for him as for Liviu but the days still weigh heavily. We took the washing. Bogdan didn’t want to see me or anyone. He is ashamed of being where he is and of the three his innocence is the clearest. Why are these men in prison? Corruption charges. Are they guilty? I am personally sure that at least two are not but that is what they all say, isn’t it, so we won’t go there. The heart of the matter is that none had a fair trial, just as many others in prison for corruption haven’t had fair trials. Witnesses weren’t allowed, speaking in defense wasn’t allowed, charges in many cases wouldn’t have held water in a US court. Why is all this happening? It’s complicated but…some people are benefitting. And the American Embassy is applauding the “fight against corruption” because it’s good, isn’t it, fighting against corruption? It’s good only as long as the fight itself is not corrupt.

Candy canes began as straight white sticks of sugar candy. A choirmaster at Cologne Cathedral decided to have the ends bent to depict a shepherd’s crook. It wasn’t until the 20th century that candy canes got their red stripes.

Each year I want to write a Christmas column and each year I write about generosity, about giving to others, about inviting others into your life during the holidays. It doesn’t matter whether you celebrate Hanukkah, Christmas or Kwanza, the best reason to remember these holidays is to be kind to one another. Life brings about so many ways to be kind to others and I’m sure that the busiest person can think of someone who needs a reason to smile. Once Mom’s parents moved to San Diego when I was about 7 years old, we always celebrated Christmas by sharing breakfast and gift opening with mom’s parents. It was so difficult for 3 impatient children to wait for Grandma and Grandpa to drive up and then walk in the house with a laundry basket full of gifts. In later years we unwrapped gifts after breakfast because the anticipation was greater when we waited a bit longer. One year my brother was just a few days short of getting his certification as a pastor, what he called legal marrying and burying. Mom was so proud of him that she asked him to say the Christmas morning breakfast prayer. As mom and brother Clyde sat on one side of the table, my sister and I sat on the other side facing them and Grandma and Grandpa sat in the honored positions at each end of the table. We all bent our heads solemnly. Clyde began quietly, and then got more cheerful and loud as he said, “Father, Son and Holy Ghost. He who grabs gets the most. YAY GOD!” Mom elbowed my brother so hard that I thought she may have broken a few of his ribs. I don’t know if Mom ever forgave my brother for saying that prayer in front of her conservative parents, but I can tell you that I never get tired of telling the story of this incident that happened in the 1960s. Looking around the internet, I found this sentiment. At first I though my neice had written it. It certainly looks like something she could have written. But it wasn’t her. It is vaguely credited to BYU, so I will leave the credit there. I really like it and feel that this could be sent or mailed to grown children throughout the year. I know that it is how I fel and I hope that most parents feel this way. “My children ask me each year the same question. After thinking about it, I decided I'd give them my real answer: What do I want for Christmas? I want you. I want you to keep coming around, I want you to bring your kids around, I want you to ask me questions, ask my advice, tell me your problems, ask for my opinion, ask for my help. I want you to come over and rant about your problems, rant about life, whatever. Tell me about your job, your worries, your kids, your fur babies. I want you to continue sharing your life with me. Come over and laugh with me, or laugh at me, I don't care. Hearing you laugh is music to me. I spent the better part of my life raising you the best way I knew how, and I'm not bragging, but I did a pretty darn good job. Now, give me time to sit back and admire my work, I'm pretty proud of it. Raid my refrigerator, help yourself, I really don't mind. In fact, I wouldn't want it any other way. I want you to spend your money making a better life for you and your family; I have the things I need. I want to see you happy and healthy. When you ask me what I want for Christmas, I say "nothing" because you've already been giving me my gift all year. I want you.” Merry Christmas everyone. I hope that every holiday is a Happy Holiday for you all. These are my thoughts.

Tips For Making This Holiday Gathering The Best One Yet (StatePoint) As most holiday hosts know, it’s not unheard-of to spend the majority of your party in the kitchen, while guests laugh together down the hall. But preparing in advance can help you reduce stress, have more time to make the moments special and still serve a delicious meal. Here are a few hosting hints to make this holiday the best yet. Snappy Sides Make sides in a cinch by doing any chopping, slicing or mixing in advance of the day of your party. Certain sides can even be prepped ahead and popped in the oven just before the guests arrive. Or, consider making your party a potluck festivity. This way, everyone pitches in on the food, which leaves you time to mine Pinterest for simple DIY holiday décor ideas that are sure to draw more than a few wows.

CHP Helps Seniors To Stay Sharp And Stay Safe SACRAMENTO, Calif. – Every year, drivers 65 years of age and older look to the California Highway Patrol (CHP) for assistance in maintaining or improving their ability to drive safely. In response, the CHP provides the Age Well, Drive Smart program to equip senior drivers with the necessary tools to remain safe and confident on the road. The Age Well, Drive Smart program covers various topics ranging from California driving laws, safe driving practices, and the effects of aging on a person’s ability to drive safely. It is not uncommon for senior drivers to be unaware or deny changes in their physical or mental conditions which negatively affect their ability to drive safely. Therefore the Age Well, Drive Smart program was designed with a self-assessment component to assist senior drivers with identifying these changes and providing possible corrective options. "Giving senior drivers the tools they need to continue to be safe drivers is not only important to the safety of the motoring public, but also for seniors to maintain their independence." said CHP Commissioner Joe Farrow. "Our senior driving course affords the continued education that can benefit seniors, helping to ensure they enjoy safe driving well into their golden years." The CHP invites senior drivers to attend a free, two-hour Age Well, Drive Smart class at their nearest CHP Area office or specified venue. This class is an excellent opportunity for senior drivers to refresh their knowledge of California driving laws, evaluate their driving abilities, and improve their driving skills. If you or a family member would like to attend an Age Well, Drive Smart class, please contact your local CHP office. To locate an office near you, visit www.chp.ca.gov. Funding for this program was provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Notes from Supervisor Dianne Jacob

Backcountry beauty: It was great to recently join horse riders, hikers and others who enjoy our great outdoors to formally dedicate a new 2.2-mile trail along San Vicente Road near Ramona. The completion of the wide, roped-off path was a big step forward in our efforts to open up even more of our beautiful backcountry to the public and was part of a bigger project to improve San Vicente. I want to thank residents -especially in Ramona and San Diego Country Estates -- for their patience over the past couple of years as the county realigned parts of the road and took other steps to make it safer. And a big thank you to all those who made the new path possible! Reducing fire danger: Financial assistance is available for qualified San Diego County landowners dealing with dead and dying trees. The federal government is making more money available to help private property owners address tree mortality and other droughtrelated damage. For more information, call 760-745-2061. Boosting our economy: The Board of Supervisors recently took another step to help our boutique wineries and craft breweries. We approved new rules that give more flexibility and opportunity to caterers, food vendors, wineries and breweries looking to grow and expand. Under the procedures, caterers are allowed to handle food service for wineries, breweries and businesses that don’t have full service capabilities, while making sure the food is properly handled. County staff recommended the new rules following a study of catering events at wineries, breweries and private functions. For more District 2 news, go to www.diannejacob.com or follow me on Facebook and Twitter. If I can assist with a county issue, please call my office at 619-531-5522 or email dianne.jacob@sdcounty. ca.gov Have a great East County day! Dianne *** As we let our light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.

Main Course The centerpiece of your celebration, the ham or turkey, shouldn’t involve a ton of work or preparation. When your guests have traveled from all over, why not treat them (and yourself) to a little taste of home that provides the perfect presentation and effortless preparation? One easy way to serve these home favorites without spending all day near the oven is by picking up a ready-to-serve, premium option locally. Classic options like those from HoneyBaked Ham come spiral sliced so they are effortless to serve. Their handcrafted, premium meats are smoked over blended hardwood chips and finished with a sweet, crunchy glaze, giving flavors that are evocative of happy

holiday memories and home cooking. The brand also offers ready-made sides, like green bean casserole and herb stuffing, as well as cakes, pies and other desserts, which could potentially mean one-stop shopping for you. And, while shopping in-store, you can join HoneyBaked Ham in supporting the Gary Sinise Foundation by donating to help our nation’s first responders. DIY Drinks All too often, hosts get bogged down fixing drinks for guests as they arrive. Avoid this conundrum by setting up a DIY drink station. You may consider making a signature drink in advance and serving it in a beverage dispenser or punch bowl, or giving guests a few cocktail suggestions on a placard. Don’t forget the little ones. Set up a hot chocolate bar that includes marshmallows, peppermints and whipped cream topping options. Ask adults to help their children serve themselves. You don’t have to get sidelined in the kitchen at your holiday gathering in order to serve a home style feast. With a few smart strategies, you can be both the host of the party and the life of it.

Chef’s Corner Fish Dish Has Ancient Roots One of the things I love the most about studying food is the insight that culinary traditions give you into history and culture. Recently, I’ve been reading about Christmas customs and holiday meals in Europe. I discovered a tradition called The Feast of the Seven Fishes, along with several delicious recipes for preparing

fish. The fish is often used as a symbol of Christianity. Because of the persecution faced by the early church, when a Christian met a stranger in the road, the Christian sometimes drew one arc of the simple fish outline in the dirt. If the stranger drew the other arc, both believers knew they were in good company. Preparing and eating seafood on Christmas Eve in celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ is an old European tradition. Many families abstain from eating meat and serve only fish or other types of seafood on Christmas Eve. A typical feast features cod, eel, octopus, calamari, mussels, clams, shrimp and lobster. While researching the preparation of fish throughout history, I discovered a delicious recipe for fish poached in an inexpensive olive oil along with sliced cucumber and dill. The

olive oil ensures that the fish will be moist, and the cucumber and dill compliment the dish perfectly. If you’re tired of preparing the same thing for your Christmas celebration, explore your families’ culinary heritage and create your own traditions. POACHED FISH WITH CUCUMBERS 2 1/2 cups inexpensive olive oil 4 (6 ounce) pieces of thick salmon, halibut or other white fish filet, skinned 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil 1 large hothouse cucumber, peeled and thinly sliced 1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill, plus a few sprigs for garnish 2 teaspoons white wine vinegar Sea salt 1. Pour a thin layer of olive oil in a pan just big enough to hold the pieces of fish side by side. Season the fish on both sides with a little salt, place in pan and pour the rest of the oil over them -- it should just cover the fish. Very slowly heat the oil to 140 F, agitating it with a spatula now and then so it heats evenly. If you don’t have a thermometer, you can test the oil with your little finger -- the oil should just feel unpleasantly hot. 2. Take the pan off of the heat and leave it somewhere warm on top of the stove for 15 minutes, so the fish can poach gently in the oil. The temperature should remain at 130 F to 140 F; if necessary, keep placing the pan on and off the heat to maintain this temperature. 3. Shortly before the fish is ready, continued on page 14

Grapplers Hit The Mat

by Nic Ritchie

Wrestling season is here once again! The official wrestling season has begun, although several wrestlers have been training with preseason workouts since September. They have worked hard to condition and master the basics of wrestling over the course of the last month and a half. With their first meet on December 8th, the Julian wrestlers will be able to put their hard work to the test. This year promises to be an exciting one, with several tournaments awaiting the team, as well as league meets and a home meet on January 26th. Led by Coach Tony Massa, the wrestlers will have several new members to the team from all different grade levels, as well as a few seasoned veterans who will continue their pursuit of victory. Hard work and perseverance will help the Julian wrestlers to have a season to remember! Winter sports are in full swing. Please come support Julian Athletics by coming and cheering at any of our games.

A Guide To Winter Sports The fall sports season wrapped up the first week of December with the traditional Fall Sports Award Banquet. The booster club partnered with the cheer squad to throw a wonderful tri-tip steak dinner fundraiser. They food was exceptionally prepared and a great deal for $10 a plate. The multipurpose room at the high school was bustling with family and friends all enjoying a meal together. Our athletic director, Scott Munson, commenced the ceremony by having each coach come up with their team and give the audience a brief overview of the their season. A photo with every athlete that participated in a fall sport was then taken: a first in Julian athletic history. Each sport then broke up into separate rooms for awards. Once separate each coach gave out awards to their athletes and celebrated the season with students and family.

With the conclusion of the winter sports banquet came the beginning of a whole new set of sports. Athletics in high school are broken up into three distinct seasons; fall, spring and winter. The fall season consists of football, cheer, volleyball and cross country. During the winter it’s basketball, soccer and cheer and in the spring consists of softball, baseball, golf and track and field. Julian has an unusually high number of athletes per capita and many students play a sport all three seasons. Here are some things to look out for during the season. Girls basketball got a new coach this season: Julian’s own Jennifer Wylie. She is the Junior and Senior English teacher at the high school and coached basketball in the past. Many of the championship banners for girls’ basketball that hang in the gym were won during her seasons’ coaching. Under her leadership a large group of volunteers revamped the gym. They did lots of work including redoing the front door, replacing the lights and carpeting and repainting the cheer bench. The Julian girls made a strong showing in the first couple games of the season and will continue to do so. The boys basketball team is also under new leadership. Julian High School Alumni Andre Dominguez stepped in to the position of boys coach this year. He is also backed up senior Shane Duffy as team captain. They boys team are playing well, and we expect great things from them this season.

The Ethics Of Julian

by Catherine Skibinski

This was an essay submitted by a student at Julian to the Better Business Bureau for a scholarship contest. Answering a prompt about “the importance of ethics in the marketplace,” it reflects on the importance of strong ethics in small communities such as Julian. Strong ethics are the basis for good business, and never is that more obvious than in a small town. I live in Julian, California, nestled in the San Diego mountains, boasting a population of 1,500 and no chain establishments. During the 16 years that my family has lived in Julian they have learned almost every shop and restaurant owner either on first name basis or by sight. This intimacy between consumer and business in Julian lends itself to a certain transparency that is especially characteristic of small towns. This unique setting requires integrity, civility and high regard for ethics in order to be people and organizations to be successful. Those who work at a business have the greatest influence on its reputation: good or bad. This is especially evident in a community where news spreads like wildfire. From a young age I saw the banners hung in the outfield of the little league field displaying who donated in order to support the league. I recognized who supplied a basket to the Halloween carnival or helped provide desserts to the Julian Family Fiddle Camp community concerts. By knowing my neighbors, I heard about who paid fair wages and who treated their employees with respect. All of these small actions that I have gradually picked up on have given me an impression of every business in my home town. This impression shapes where I recommended tourists to eat, where I go with my family and who I talk highly of to friends. Ethics and integrity are the most important building blocks to creating a strong business and by extension a strong community. They provide guidance in customer relations, advertising, and community relations. Every action has an equal and inverse reaction. This principle is heavily applied in the marketplace. The way businesses present themselves, who they support, who they employ, the way they treat their employees and their customer service are all based on their ethics and integrity. Every small deed slowly forms their reputation. Just as a business won’t hire someone based on his/her integrity and reputation, likewise people won’t support a business for the same reason. You can never sacrifice ethics and integrity---everything else is built upon them.

The Lady Eagle Basketball Team sporting their new uniforms before one of their games. They worked extremely hard before the season to raise money for new equipment “This is our year” is what the girls basketball team constantly gears from our head coach Jennifer Wylie and assistant coaches Desiree Vigil and Jaime Lachappa. Our team is not just a team: we are a family on and off the court. We consist of eight seniors, Sherry Maddison, Cynthia Garcia, Rayven Smothers (captain), Emy Gregor (captain), Savannah Brehm (captain), Lorena Silva, Tori Fluharty (manager), and Veronica Lopez (manager), three juniors Catherine Skibinski, Lauren Linton, and Kaleigh Kaltenthaler. We also have one sophomore Danika Stalcup and two freshman, Sierra Biliunas and Erin Conitz. We pulled coach Wylie out of her “hibernation” and came into the season not knowing what to expect. We were immediately welcomed with open arms, love, trust, dedication, and discipline, from all three of our coaches. Our coaches encouraged us to believe in ourselves and always make sure that everybody knows how important they are if we want to succeed. Together as a team we worked hard on a fundraiser that brought in over $14,000 to pay for new bags, balls, uniforms, socks, shoes, medical supplies, sweatshirts, warm up clothes, etc. We have a total of 16 games (not including tournaments), nine of which are home games. Please come out and cheer us on! You won't regret it!

Lady Eagles Soccer

by Vivian Sweet

This year, Julian has a very strong girl soccer team. Tyson Flack (coach) and Wills Booth (assistant coach) have taught us all a lot this year, from how to trap and how to pass skillfully. I’d like to give a thanks to Cory and Dusty as well for always keeping practice lively. They have also taught us a lot, like how to steal and screen. Our two captains this year are Lakota Booth (junior) and Caitlin Sanders (senior). Cait always knows where a girl should be and how to keep the team under control. I’d like to thank all of the above for a great couple moths of soccer, and hopefully another few in 2017. Our first game was in Borrego Springs against the girls Borrego team. We won 6-0.. We were all very excited to have won our first game. On the field, we learned our strengths and weaknesses, and we’ve have gotten much better since then. We had one big fundraiser at the beginning of the season- our car wash. Every girl was there and doing a great job. It was not only a bonding time but also a chance to show how well we work together off of the field. We also have a GoFundMe ( https://www.gofundme.com/ julian-girls-soccer-team ). So far, we have raised $290, and our goal is $2000 for gear, and whatever equipment we may need. Please support the team using the link above! Thank you to the Booths and Flacks for driving the team anywhere we need to be. We really appreciate you. Thank you to the parents and friends who come to supports our games as well. We love our audience. Our next game is January 6th, 2017. Please come watch! Let’s go, Lady Eagles Soccer!

Howdy! From Lake Cuyamaca “Dusty Britches” here along with “Cuss Cussler” checking in with all yall. While estimates of rainfall have varied from 3” to 6” from the blow-in blow-out storm we had over December 15th and 16th ...Earl Voogd, the dam keeper for Helix Water had totals from the dam here at Lake Cuyamaca for the morning of the 15th at .28, morning of the 16th at 3.49, and morning of the 17th at .06. I figured I should do some figuring. When a storm like that hits, we are out checking the culverts to make sure they are flowing full. And, in doing so we get a good handle on where the water is coming in from during the course of the storm. When I checked the inflow of water earlier in the day, the majority of run off was coming from the culverts located at southern end of Middle Peak... and some good flow from Engineers Road and also at Chambers Park. Normally we get our sustained flow of water from the south end of the Lake out of Azalea Creek which comes off the back side of Cuyamaca Peak and Little Stonewall Creek. That will happen later but for now, we are getting run off and that’s a good thing ! “Cuss” figured from the storm totals Lake Cuyamaca raised about 8.5”. We took a boat ride out to the dam to get a reading on the tower metering board to find it at “23” which means 4,623’ in elevation (above sea level) is where the surface of the Lake is right now. It came up

from 4,622.4’. The “Lake Guys” use elevation and the contour of the bottom of the Lake to determine how much water is in it. At 4,622.4’ elevation at the surface of the water we have about 541.64 acre feet of water in the Lake. After the storm we were at 4,623’ elevation….giving us 597.58 acre feet of water… an additional 55.94 acre feet of water, or there abouts. When you look at an acre foot of water equaling 325,851 gallons...we realized 18,228,104.94 gallons of water from mother nature. It all looks good, but our Lake is full when the reading Boards indicate 4,625.8’ in elevation equaling 889.57 acre feet of water. We’ve got a ways to go , but it’s a good start... bring it! The trout fishing is picking up and waterfowl hunting is yielding some birds, but, so far, the birds are winning. Last week the waterfowl hunt yielded 2 bufflehead and 1 ruddy duck. The weather may have pushed some more birds south so the counts should go up. Temperatures are dropping. The transition from fall to winter is just around the corner. A huge thanks goes out to Dolores Gomez and the folks at the restaurant for two great CHRISTmas Dinners… one was for the Cuyamaca Water Board (5-star)... and another great dinner for the Lake Cuyamaca and Restaurant staff which included a lively gift exchange, plenty of food, and almost a food fight. Remember... eat, drink, and be merry... but never trust a fart. “Tight Lines and Bent Rods”... Dusty Britches

Great Holiday Gifts For Hunters And Outdoor Enthusiasts (StatePoint) Will you be shopping for any hunters or outdoor enthusiasts this holiday season? Thoughtful, useful gifts will be well-appreciated. “When it comes to hunters, think lightweight and packable,” says Louis Chalfant, director of product development at Smith’s Consumer Products.

1. Entering 2016, who are the only three players to have won the following awards: a Gold Glove, a Silver Slugger and a Cy Young? 2. When was the last time before 2015 that the Houston Astros had two pitchers win at least 17 games apiece? 3. Who was the first player in NFL history to have 1,000 receiving yards and 1,000 return yards in the same season? 4.

In 2016, golfer Andrew Landry set a record for the lowest opening-round score (66) at a U.S. Open played at Oakmont (Pa.). Who had held the record? Answers on page 14

Here are a few ideas to consider: Sharpen their Game Those who hunt, fish and go on outdoor expeditions know just how important it is to keep tools sharp. You can hone gamesmanship with essential gear like a knife sharpener. For instance, a versatile tool like the Jiff y-Pro Handheld Sharpener is quick, safe and easy to use whether one is in the field, back at camp, or at home. It functions both to set the edge on a dull or damaged blade and to achieve razor sharpness. Plus, the scissors sharpening slot is large enough to accommodate game shears as well. Lightweight enough to be a stocking stuffer, consider, the 4” Diamond Combination Bench Stone, which features coarse and fine grit sharpening surfaces. Its innovative design speeds sharpening by collecting and holding the metal filings which ordinarily build up during use. Each stone has a groove for fish hooks or pointed tools, and when one is finished sharpening; he or she can store the stones in the handle for safekeeping. These tools are available at various sporting goods, outdoors and hardware retail stores, as well as online at SmithsProducts. com. Get them Prepared Those whose adventures take

them off the beaten path need certain lightweight, compact tools to be prepared for a variety of situations. A fire starter is a musthave for any avid outdoorsman, hunter or backpacker. Other handy items to consider for gifts are a high-quality first aid kit with all the essentials, a multifunctional pocket knife or even an IOU promising to cover the cost of this seasons’ hunting and fishing licenses. With some careful consideration, you can make the holidays special for the hunters and outdoor enthusiasts in your life.

In Britain, eating mince pies at Christmas dates back to the 16th century. It is still believed that to eat a mince pie on each of the Twelve Days of Christmas will bring 12 happy months in the year to follow. Also, they should be eaten in silence.

A couple of years ago I ran the first two parts of a planned three part series on basic training during WWII. The third in the series is almost in the can so to speak so this week is part one, next week will be the annual issue of who we lost this year and then the second and third part of the series will run consecutively. At the start WWII, America had a small military, rated about 18th in the world. By the end of the war over 16 million men were processed and became part of the deadliest fighting force the world had ever known. This is an American story about millions of men represented by one. By January 1943, America had been at war for two years. In January ’43 my father turned 17. He lived in Brooklyn, NY, he was a junior in high school, still played stickball in the streets, wasn’t old enough to drive or buy a drink and was four years from being able to vote. But he did, what millions of men and boys before and after him did in his time, he joined the army. I’ve heard the stories of my father’s basic training experience so many times that a recent conversation made me realize that so many of our WWII Vets are either no longer with us or their memories are no longer with them. So hopefully I can relate some of the experiences of my teenage father which despite his personal terror at the time, it is humorous, so much so, that he often cackles with laughter telling the stories. It began with the constant pestering of his parents about joining the Army and doing his duty. He must have been so annoying (runs in my family) that my Grandmother finally relents and says “Go Already.” He enlisted within days of his 17th birthday and a month later on February 24th he’s called up. My Grandfather drove my Dad to Fort Dix, NJ, dropped him off at the gate and was off to see his sister in Lakewood. So here’s my Dad, 17 years old, 5’6” and 118 pounds. He had a 14-inch collar and a 29-inch waist. He was so small that my Grandfather was sure the Army wouldn’t take him. He walked through the gate and presented his papers to the MPs and is told to go to the admin building. After that he is sent to his barrack and assigned a bunk. He is given a “critique” which is a rundown of what he should expect over the next couple of days. Processing begins. He received a physical, injections and a haircut, which took 15 seconds. Uniforms and equipment were distributed. The Army had its own method for boot sizing in those days. Recruits stood on a boot stand and lifted two buckets full of sand in each hand. The impression their feet made in a pad was measured and two pairs of boots were drawn. He also got socks, underwear, blouse, overcoat, raincoat, OD’s (olive drab), suntans (khakis for summer, no short sleeves), ties, leggings, fatigues, brass insignias, helmet, web equipment, canteen, shelter half, tent pegs, trenching shovel, first aid kit and an A bag and B bag to put it in. This was the first time in my father’s life where everything he got was brand new and of the finest quality. The men were also fitted and given an overseas cap in the colored piping of the branch they were to serve in. Green-tanks, blue-infantry, red-field artillery, vermillion-coast artillery and yellow-mechanized cavalry. He was issued “dog tags” with his serial number 12230219. My father is 90 years old and this happened 73 years ago and he

still remembers his serial number. In those days, if your number started with 1 it designated you were regular army which meant you enlisted and your service was for the duration of the war plus six months. Being that we never signed a treaty with Germany I guess my old man is still in. An O start meant you were an officer and a start with 3 or 4 meant you were a draftee. After three days at Fort Dix the tanker recruits were loaded onto trains departing for “basic” at Fort Knox, KY. During WWII it was not called boot camp. Dad doesn’t remember how long the trip took. All he knows was that it was light when he left Dix and dark when he got to Knox though someone did mention that their arrival time at Fort Knox was 2 A.M. Those days were not too far removed from the Depression and watches were still a luxury reserved for the wealthy. The men were moved off the trains and onto busses on the way to the barracks. My father never forgot going through the gates of the fort and seeing a big sign that said WELCOME TO FORT KNOX KENTUCKY HOME OF THE ARMORED FORCE. On a reunion of the 756th Tank Battalion in 2002 he told me the sign was still there. The barracks were drab, two story, clapboard buildings. Thirty men to each floor, sixty men to a building. There were 150 to 180 men in a company. My father was Company C, 12th Battalion. The confusion, fast pace and sleeplessness of the past few days in his life was about to turn to the first terror of his military experience. The men in Company C were about to be introduced to the meanest “son of a bitch” they would encounter in their young lives, “GOD”. Referred to among the men for the rest of their lives as “Sergeant God, who promptly told them in no uncertain terms that their souls “may” belong to Jesus, but for the next seventeen weeks your ass belongs to me. “Sergeant God” was old army. When he was angry and screaming he could curse for forty minutes and not repeat himself all the while spittle was landing on your face that was two inches from his. He had been there since the late twenties. As such he and his Corporals would teach his recruits the “army” way of doing things. Recruits were issued a foot locker. In that footlocker would go socks, underwear and other personal items folded in a particular way and placed in a precise order and position in the locker. In the standing locker was where all the other clothes were on hangers with the hook of the hanger always pointing inward. To the left of the locker was the raincoat, then overcoat, blouse, shirts, pants, fatigues. Always in that order, always with every button buttoned, every zipper zipped, never a speck of dust in or on the outside of the locker. Boots spit-shined, evenly spaced laces all the way to the top and tied with equal loops in the bows of the laces. This is just the beginning of the “army way” in basic during WWII. Future columns will deal with how the army broke you down and built men into a cohesive fighting force. It is funny in retrospect but was deadly serious at the time. It is a part of recent history that isn’t taught. There are those that experienced it and those that should know of the sacrifice.

Commodore Computer Q: I bought a Commodore Plus/4 computer about 30 years ago. I never learned to use it. In fact, it is in its original box. I would like to find out what it is worth. -- Alec, Spicer, Minnesota A: I would hold on to your computer for a few more years since early computers and computer games are beginning to attract the attention of collectors. That means current prices are sure to increase. Your Commodore Plus/4 system was one of the first home computers, and the fact that it is in its original packaging makes it especially attractive. I found several Plus/4 computers available for sale, all priced in the $75-$150 range. One was in its original box with power adapter and built-in programs on ROM. It was priced at $95. *** Q: I have an oil painting done by Touis Ponsen. Do you know anything about this painter and where I might sell this picture? -- Darlene, Calico Rock, Arkansas A: I think you may have copied the name wrong. Even though I can't find any information on a Touis Ponsen, I did find a short biography of Tunis Ponsen, who was born in the Netherlands in 1891 and immigrated to the United States in about 1914. He was a painter and settled in Western Michigan. Ponsen was known for his landscapes and treatment of light. I can't help you find a buyer for your painting. However, I suggest you contact art dealers in Tulsa, Oklahoma City and Little Rock. *** Q: My late uncle was a golfer, and he often haunted thrift shops searching for sheet music featuring golf themes. The earliest sheet seems to be "With Your Plus Fours On" from 1923. -- Bill, Davenport, Iowa A: The piece of music you listed in your letter is valued in the $75-$100 range. I found it documented in the "Official Price Guide to Golf Collectibles" by Edward Kiersh and published by House of Collectibles books. Golf memorabilia has become extremely popular in recent years, and prices have steadily risen accordingly. Of particular interest are pre-1950 golf clubs, tournament programs, medals, trophies and autographs. ***

(NAPSA)-Over 30 million men and women have served in the U.S. Army since its establishment in 1775. Now, their stories can be on display for all Americans to appreciate. That's because on September 14, 2016, the Army Historical Foundation celebrated the groundbreaking of the future National Museum of the United States Army at Fort Belvoir, Va. Secretary of the Army Eric K. Fanning, Army Chief of Staff Gen. Mark A. Milley and family members of soldiers whose stories will be highlighted in the Museum delivered remarks commemorating the occasion. "Today's groundbreaking is an important benchmark toward building a museum that ensures America always remembers the extraordinary sacrifices and service of the men and women who have worn the Army uniform," said Gen. Gordon R. Sullivan, U.S. Army (Ret.), Chairman of the Army Historical Foundation. The National Army Museum, expected to open in 2019, will continued on page 12

Dear EarthTalk: Are self-driving cars good for the environment? -- Billy Shea, Boston, MA You know the future is here when you see that the car beside you at a red light has nobody at the helm. That’s already happening in California where a few companies (Uber, Google, Apple, Tesla) have begun testing autonomous vehicles on the open road—albeit with human drivers at the ready in case anything goes wrong. Meanwhile, the major automakers have begun integrating autonomous driving technologies (blind spot detection, GPS mapping, assisted parking, etc.) into existing models, and will surely offer their own fully self-driving cars once lawmakers qualify them as street legal, maybe as early as 2018. Proponents say that not only will driverless cars make our roads safer (as they can sense walkers, bikers, other cars and road infrastructure to avoid collisions), but will also be a boon to the environment. Zia Wadud, who co-authored a study released earlier this year

assessing the travel, energy and carbon impacts of autonomous vehicles, says the widespread adoption of the technology could reduce energy consumption significantly. “Automated vehicles can interact with each other and drive very closely as a ‘platoon’,” reports Wadud. “This can reduce the total energy consumption of road transport by 4% to 25%, because vehicles which follow closely behind each other face less air resistance.” Beyond the platoon benefit, driverless cars can also shave another 25 percent off overall automotive energy consumption through more efficient computer-assisted ride optimization. Yet another environmental benefit could be fewer cars on the road altogether. “Your car could give you a lift to work in the morning and then give a lift to someone else in your family— or, for that matter, to anyone else: After delivering you to your destination, it doesn’t sit idle in a parking lot for 20-plus hours every day,” report MIT researchers Matthew Claudel and Carlo Ratti in a recent McKinsey.com article. “By combining ride sharing with car sharing ... it would be possible to take every passenger to his or her destination at the time they need to be there, with 80 percent fewer cars.” They conclude that clearing four of five cars from the road would have “momentous consequences” for our cities regarding pollution, traffic, efficiency, and parking.

Google's self-driving car prototype can be spotted on surface streets and highways around the company's Mountain View, California headquarters. Credit: Becky Stern, FlickrCC.

But Jason Bordoff of Columbia University’s Center on Global Energy Policy argues in The Wall Street Journal that driverless cars hurt overall energy efficiency by undermining public transit: “If you can work, watch a movie or sleep while in the car, perhaps you will take a car rather than public transportation or be more likely to drive for long trips.” He adds that autonomous vehicles also “significantly expand the universe of potential drivers” bringing more people (and cars) onto the road and possibly increasing total vehicle miles travelled overall. “Even carsharing services could increase energy demand if the ease and convenience pulls people away from mass transit, walking or biking and into cars.” Bordoff remains optimistic that autonomous vehicles can provide a net gain for society and the environment, but only if we are careful about how we implement the technology. “To ensure that autonomous vehicles deliver economic, energy security and environmental benefits, we will need supporting policies targeted at those objectives, such as increased fuel-economy standards, investments in public transportation infrastructure, and R&D in alternative vehicle technologies.” CONTACTS: “Help or hindrance?

Healthy New Year's Resolutions To Boost Your Immunity (StatePoint) This New Year, one important resolution is to focus on supporting a strong immune system for a happy and healthy 2017. “Building a strong immune system can improve and even extend your life,” says Larry Robinson, PhD, and vice president of Scientific Affairs, Embria Health Sciences, a manufacturer of natural, sciencebased ingredients that support wellness and vitality. For a healthier year, Robinson and the experts at Embria are encouraging people to toast to these great health and wellness tips.

Be Social It’s easy to hole-up during these cold winter days, but it’s not very good for your health or immune system. Research shows that people that have more human interactions are better at combating cold weather challenges. So make sure to chat with your coworkers during the day and make plans with your friends after work. Not only will this boost your immunity, but social activities may also help reduce stress and depression. Supplement While a well-balanced diet of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains can support good health, getting the proper vitamins and nutrients in sufficient quantities every day can prove challenging. Consider resolving to offer your immune system targeted support with a supplement designed to boost healthy immune function. One of the best immune strengthening ingredients is EpiCor fermentate, which has been clinically shown to support the body’s ability to initiate the proper immune response when

needed, support rapid immune response and maintain healthy immune function. You can find EpiCor in many popular and trusted supplement brands. Rest and Relaxation Rest and relaxation can go a long way toward supporting good health. Ongoing sleep deficiency is linked to a number of major health problems and can impair the way your immune system responds, according to the National Institutes of Health. What’s more, too much stress can compromise immune response. So whether it’s spending time with friends, going to yoga class or taking a bath, make sure your

schedule includes time for both sleep and for stress-reducing activities. Improve your health from the inside out this New Year. By focusing on boosting your immunity as a goal, you will naturally adopt healthy habits.

California Commentary

The Freedom To Leave

by Jon Coupal

Human beings prefer freedom to collectivism and tyranny. Only those in complete denial disregard the negative consequences of policies that suppress liberty. Consider North Korea versus South Korea. And recall that in Berlin during the Cold War era, people weren’t shot trying to go from West to East – not that anyone tried anyway. Finally, in the course of the last 55 years of the Castro regime, very few people jumped on rickety boats in Miami seeking a better life in Havana. For those who follow what is happening in the United States – both in politics and with the economy – we can be grateful that even in the most oppressive economic environment – think your typical liberal city such as San Francisco or Portland – people remain remarkably free compared to citizens in many other parts of the world. One of the freedoms that we Americans enjoy is the freedom to travel. A citizen’s ability to travel from state to state has been deemed by the United States Supreme Court to be a fundamental right that can only be restricted in the narrowest of circumstances. Part of this right is more than just going to another state or country and then returning. It means the freedom to leave. Permanently. In California, we all know people who have bailed out for places where the taxes are low, regulations are light and the cost of living reasonable. But the evidence here is not just anecdotal. In a recent piece in the Washington Times, economist Stephen Moore presents an amazing statistic: “Of the 10 blue states that Hillary Clinton won by the largest percentage margins — California, Massachusetts, Vermont, Hawaii, Maryland, New York, Illinois, Rhode Island, New Jersey, and Connecticut — every

single one of them lost domestic migration (excluding immigration) over the last 10 years (2004-14).” But here’s the kicker: The exact opposite is true in those states that supported Donald Trump by the largest margin. Those states – including Wyoming, West Virginia, Oklahoma, North Dakota, Kentucky, Tennessee, South Dakota, and Idaho — saw net domestic in-migration. So what are the characteristics of those Hillary-supporting states that are bleeding productive citizens? Here, Moore doesn’t mince words: “They are the loser states. They are all progressive. High tax rates. High welfare benefits. Heavy regulation. Environmental extremism. Super minimum wages. Most outlaw energy drilling. The whole leftwing playbook is on display in the Hillary states. And people are leaving in droves.” For those of us who follow these often wonkish statistics, let’s be clear. We’re not gloating – we’re unhappy. California is a great state with virtually unlimited potential. But the demographic trends are not pretty and when one considers the crushing debt load that looms like a fatal disease, it’s hard not to be deeply concerned. Is there anything that can save the Golden State? In a very weird way, it is Trump himself who might save California by revitalizing the national economy. That would be ironic indeed. But if that doesn’t happen and the great “California Exodus” continues, the economic death spiral will accelerate. And unlike East Berlin, when productive California citizens decide to leave, there is nothing the Progressives can do to stop them.

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 humorist and social commentator Will Rogers who made the following sage observation: "Too many people spend money they haven't earned, to buy things they don't want, to impress people they don't like." • Famed Thoroughbred racehorse Man o' War was as successful off the track as he was on it. After his famed career, he retired to stud, producing more than 64 stakes winners. Man o' War sired 1937 Triple Crown winner War Admiral, and he was grandsire of Seabiscuit, who was Horse of the Year in 1938. In 1966, 37 percent of all stakes winners were descended from Man o' War, and he appears at least 17 times in the bloodline of American Pharoah, the 2015 Triple Crown winner. • Those who study such things say that hyenas are more closely related to cats than to dogs. • Those who study spycraft are aware of the many ingenious ways that have been used to pass secret messages. One of the earliest examples occurred in the late 6th century BCE, when Histiaeus, the tyrant of Miletus (in present-day Turkey), shaved the head of his most trusted slave, tattooed a message on the slave's scalp, and waited for the hair to grow back before dispatching the slave to his sonin-law, Aristagoras, along with instructions to shave the slave's head upon his arrival. • Police in Saudi Arabia have been instructed to arrest young men wearing tight jeans; the garments are considered to be immodest and un-Islamic. • The Gottfried Krueger Brewing Company, founded in 1858 and based in Newark, New Jersey, has the distinction of producing the first beer in cans, back in January 1935. *** Thought for the Day: "A man is known by the company he keeps.

Congress, More Polarized And Paralyzed continued from page 2

compromise with the Democrats when your district is an “impound” containing 88 percent Republican voters. Moreover, from the safety of an “impound” district why not go further and denounce the opposite party from every stump and media outlet between Washington DC and your own district, leaving scars and bad feelings which will last. If you start to show moderation in an “impound” district, someone further to your leftward or rightward, as the case may be, may challenge and beat you in the next primary contest. A number of sitting congressional Republicans in safe districts lost their primaries in recent elections because they were perceived as being too flexible or collegial. Gerrymandering has taken the battle of ideologies and ideas from the local level, where it was traditionally resolved, up to another level, to Congress itself. Thus the polarization and paralysis continues.

a little holiday time flutter. You'll soon get news that will lead to more stability. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Stop getting so involved in everyone's personal problems that you lose precious time with loved ones. Remember, even the Supreme Court closes for the holidays. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) All signs point to a bright holiday, with all of those pesky problems finally resolved in your favor. Share the good times with people you love and, of course, who love you. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Your plans should not be set in stone and cemented over. Leave some openings in case you need to make changes. Spend the holidays with your nearest and dearest. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Surprise! This holiday finds you on the receiving end of the generosity of those who are usually the recipients of so much that you give so freely and lovingly. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) That piece of good news assures that you'll be swimming in clearer, calmer waters this holiday season. There might be a storm or two ahead, but you'll weather it all in fine style. BORN THIS WEEK: You have a flair for seeing things as you'd like them to be, as well as a gift for turning your perceptions into reality.

Wrap those gifts now to save yourself lots of unwanted pressure. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Be receptive when a family member or friend asks to confide in you. Your positive reaction could ensure that he or she will have a happy holiday experience. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Don't be rushed into wrapping up that workplace problem. Consider leaving it until after the holidays. This way you'll have the facts you need to reach the right resolution. LEO (July 23 to August 22) You'll get news that will make you glow brighter than the lights of the holiday season. Be sure to use what you learn both carefully and kindly, to avoid giving the wrong impression. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) That frayed relationship could be mended in time for the holidays if you were more flexible. Give a little, and you could get back a lot more than you imagined.
