State Schools Chief Tom Torlakson Reports Slight Decline In Students’ Physical Fitness Test Results; Asks Schools, Parents To Maintain Focus On Healthy Kids
Some New Laws For 2017 • New California Law Requires Rear-Facing Car Seats For Children Under Age 2 - Children younger than 2 will be required to sit in a rearfacing car seat under a new California law that goes into effect January 1st. • California's minimum wage is set to tick up in January — from $10 an hour to $10.50. This will be the first step in a law that raises the statewide minimum to $15 an hour by 2022. • A new California state law will require ride-booking companies like Uber and Lyft to conduct comprehensive criminal background checks on their drivers. Companies that don’t comply will be fined up to $5,000 for each violation. • Right To Try Gives Terminally Ill Options Without FDA Approval - A new law allowing terminally ill patients the chance to try treatments not yet approved by the federal government begins January 1. • Mascot names - Cheering for the “Redskins” is officially a thing of the past in California as of Jan. 1. Passed back in 2015, Assembly Bill 30 gave public schools until 2017 to ditch a mascot now widely denounced as racist and insensitive to Native Americans. The four remaining California high schools using the mascot have complied: two of those schools now cheer for the “Tribe,” one roots on the “Reds” and one has ditched a mascot altogether. • Welfare payments - After years of trying to erase a welfare rule they said punishes poor people, Democrats finally succeeded in repealing a policy known as the “maximum family grant” that bars women who get pregnant while on welfare from drawing additional benefits. As of Jan. 1, women in that situation can apply for benefits to cover the new child. They can also apply to cover children who are still minors and were previously excluded. • Assault Weapons - As part of a package fortifying California’s already-tough gun laws, Senate Bill 880 and Assembly Bill 1135 sought to ban guns that circumvent a previously passed assault weapon law with reloading devices called “bullet buttons.” California bars purchasing, semi-automatic, centerfire rifles or semi-automatic pistols that lack a fixed magazine and have one of a number of features that include a protruding pistol grip or a folding or telescoping stock. If you already own one, you’ll need to register it with the California Department of Justice. • Park Names - For all you Yosemite National Park fans mourning the hotel formerly known as the Ahwahnee, there is Assembly Bill 2249. continued on page 7
SACRAMENTO—State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson reported today that the percentage of students who met the Healthy Fitness Zone (HFZ) performance standards declined slightly compared to the previous two years, according to the results of the 2015-16 Physical Fitness Test (PFT). “Good nutrition, proper rest, and exercise are key ingredients for success in the classroom and in life,” Torlakson said. “This year’s Physical Fitness Test results, which are down very slightly, remind all of us as educators, parents and community leaders that we need to convey this message to our children. One of the best ways to do that is by eating healthy foods and exercising so we can serve as role models for healthy living, not only for the sake of our children, but also for the future health of our communities and our state.” Overall, slightly more students participated in the PFT during the 2015–16 school year than the previous year, with more than 1.3 million students in grades five (459,715), seven (448,442), and nine (440,139) taking the FITNESSGRAM®, a series of six separate tests that measure aerobic capacity, body composition, abdominal strength, trunk extensor strength, upper body strength, and flexibility (Table 1). Approximately 25.9 percent of students in grade five, 32.1 percent of students in grade seven, and 36.7 percent of students in grade nine scored at the highest levels, called the HFZ. This represents levels of fitness that offer protection against diseases resulting from sedentary living (Table 2). Those levels are down slightly in all grades compared with the previous two school years. The multi-year comparison is available on Table 3. Slight gains were recorded in the Body Composition fitness area in grades five and seven. Body Composition is one of the six areas assessed annually and considered among the most important gauges of health (Table 4). Torlakson, a former high school cross country and track coach and an avid runner, has made youth health and fitness a priority of his public service career. As a state legislator for 14 years, Torlakson authored several bills to increase student physical fitness education and standards, increase accountability in fitness testing, and promote collaboration between schools and local recreation and park districts. “If we don’t change eating and exercise habits, we will continue to see a portion of our students afflicted with diabetes and heart disease,” Torlakson said. “Healthy, active, and well-nourished children are more likely to attend school and are more prepared and motivated to learn. There is a direct correlation between good nutrition, exercise, student wellness, and the ability of our students to learn well.” This is the 17th year for the reporting of physical fitness test results in California public schools. The program was first authorized in 1976 and reestablished in 1995 by Assembly Bill 265. The following year, the State Board of Education designated FITNESSGRAM® as the required physical fitness test to be administered to students in grades five, seven, and nine. The 2015–16 physical fitness results for schools, school districts, counties, and the state are available on the California Department of Education (CDE) Physical Fitness Test Results Web page. More information is also available on the CDE Physical Fitness Testing Web page.

Remembering Scott O'Dell author of Island of the Blue Dolphins When I was twelve years old (living in Julian in 1964), the movie, Island of the Blue Dolphins came out. After reading the book, the movie was a monumental disappointment. Not long after seeing the movie, Dorsa O'Dell, Scott's wife, came to our house because my mother, Sarah, Glaze, sewed clothes for her. While there, I told Mrs. O'Dell how I felt about the movie. She said, "Go tell Scott...he's waiting in the car." So I did. Mr. O'Dell was interested in my 12-year old opinions and wanted to know my favorite parts of the book, and why I didn't like the movie. At the end of our conversation, he told me that he was also disappointed in the movie. The following week, when Mrs. O'Dell came to pick up her sewing, she brought me an inscribed copy of Island of the Blue Dolphins which read: For Judy, remembering our long talk, and with the hope that you'll find someday an island of your own. Scott O'Dell, Aug. 1964 I've always remembered Scott O'Dell's kindness to spend time talking with a 12-year old. Judy Glaze Ray Ovilla, Texas

Thanks Michele! I always enjoy your folksy column about life in the mountains but your Christmas Column nailed the way I feel about Christmas and family. Loved your, "I want you...." remarks. "Things" pale in comparison to being involved in/ surrounded by a loving, healthy, vibrant family. My husband and I liked your thoughts so much we copied them and sent them to our kids. They liked them too. Thank you, Michele, for capturing this sentiment so eloquently. Sara van Ammelrooy

New Year, New You: Resources to Help You Keep Your Resolutions
(StatePoint) Making and keeping resolutions is difficult without direction or the advice of experts. Luckily, there are plenty of great resources to help, no matter what you are trying to accomplish. Here are four books that can help you stick to your goals throughout the year. Clean Eating From quinoa and chia seeds to spinach and pomegranate, “Super Clean Super Foods” is a colorfully illustrated, comprehensive guide that shows readers how to incorporate unfamiliar ingredients into everyday dishes. The book explores the incredible health properties of each super food and includes tips on how to maximize its health benefits, allowing readers to work toward specific goals. For instance, you can create a food plan to boost energy, have a healthier pregnancy, limit jetlag, reduce aging, and more. Achieve More Whether you are seeking improvement in your career, relationships, or in your overall performance, “Success: The Psychology of Achievement,” can help equip you with the tools you need to drive yourself toward success using proven psychological strategies and expert advice. From positive thinking to work-life balance to learning how to say “no,” the lessons in this dynamic infographic guide, authored by an organizational psychologist, are tailored to your personal situation through questionnaires and self-analysis exercises. Smart Meals Bowls are a delicious way to lose weight and eat healthy, but they can also be laden with hidden calories. Inspired by the very latest bowl food trend, “100 Weight Loss Bowls,” features color-coded recipes engineered to come in at under 400, 500, or 600 calories, allowing you to easily build a nutritious meal plan that meets your daily target for gradual and sustained weight loss. Workout Buddy The first full-color fitness book that teaches you how to actively engage a partner in your workout routine, “Partner Workouts” features bodyweight exercises, yoga positions, cardio and more. Three longterm, comprehensive exercise programs provide regimens so you and your partner can motivate each other to achieve your fitness goals over a period of time. From choosing your partner and setting your goals to tracking your progress and nutrition, this guide doesn't require a gym membership or expensive fitness equipment. Start 2017 off on the right foot. Relying on books, tools and other resources can help you achieve your goals.
Friendships Come In All Dimensions-Sometimes In The Most Unlikely Sizes (NAPSA)-What is so fascinating about unlikely friendships? Is it that opposites attract? Does it point to hidden mutual respect? Unlikely animal friendships have long held a particular fascination, documented with countless funny and adorable videos: a cat adopting baby ducks, a Labrador and an elephant, a baby lamb and a pig, a giraffe and an ostrich. Child and adolescent psychotherapist Katie Hurley, a parenting expert and author of "The Happy Kid Handbook: How to Raise Joyful Children in a Stressful World," notes "The wonderful thing about being a child is that friendships form just about everywhere! So it's important to allow kids the space to form new relationships, even if
Disney's "The BFG" (Big Friendly Giant) movie helps children understand that diﬀerences don't have to stand in the way of friendship and fun. they don't appear picture perfect from the outside looking in."

I would like to take a moment and update our community on several major things happening with your fire district. New Station - The new station is going well. The administrative building and barracks are almost complete. Kitchen cabinets, toilets, sinks, finish electrical, floor treatments, paint and doors are almost complete. The garage is going up fast. Paving, septic and water system are all almost complete. We are looking at project completion around the end of February. The Board of Directors is planning a community open house and you are all invited to come and tour the new station. The event is still in the planning phase but the date is set for April 22, 2017. New Ambulance - The District has a brand new ambulance. It was put into service about 2 months ago. The unit is a 2016 Dodge 4500 with a Cummings turbo diesel engine. It has four wheel drive and automatic chains and was custom designed for our use in the San Diego backcountry including auxiliary A/C for trips to the desert in the summer and extra heating for the winter. The District also purchased a used ambulance from Borrego Fire Protection District to function as a backup ambulance. New Zoll Monitor – The San Diego Fire Foundation funded a Grant request from the JCFPD to purchase a new Zoll monitor. This stateof-the-art piece of equipment will ensure our paramedics and EMTs are equipped with the latest life saving technology. This is the 12 lead monitor that is used on patients to give medics and hospitals critical information about patient vitals to ensure the best treatment of our patient. These are just some of the highlights of what we have been up to this last year. The JCFPD is running about 500 calls per year. These calls are staffed by our JCFPD ambulance staff, volunteer firefighters, reserve firefighters and Cal Fire . The JCFPD is also planning on conducting a reserve academy this spring along with the already aggressive training programs in place. I want to take this opportunity to thank all the members of our community for your continued support of our fire district and also thank all of our volunteer firefighters, reserves, Board of Directors and Julian Fire Plugs for their endless hours of volunteer time and commitment to the success of our District. Have a safe and happy holiday season.
overcome their struggles and help each other grow in wonderful ways. "Lilo & Stitch" brings a little girl and an alien together and the resulting bond teaches them companionship and understanding. "Toy Story" finds Woody and Buzz ultimately setting aside their differences and realizing they were meant to be friends all along. In "Ratatouille," a human befriends a rat. Rats are unwelcome in all places, especially the kitchen. But Remy and Linguini find that love and compatibility can be found anywhere. Disney's "The BFG" and its remake of the classic "Pete's Dragon"-both available November 29 on Blu-ray, Digital HD & Disney Movies Anywhereadd beautifully to this legacy. "The BFG" (Big Friendly Giant), directed by Steven Spielberg, is based on the beloved children's classic by Roald Dahl. "The BFG" tells the story of a courageous and spirited orphan, Sophie, and the kind giant who becomes her protector. While initially afraid, Sophie comes to overlook the superficial homely appearance of the BFG and to appreciate his noble intentions. The BFG and, Sophie, are actually very similarboth are lonely and yearn for the connection and safety of a friend, which they're able to find in each other. "Pete's Dragon" is a reimagining of Disney's cherished animated and live-action film-the adventures of an orphaned boy named Pete and his best friend Elliot, who just happens to be a dragon. Pete and Elliot belong to two different worlds but they still manage to build a foundation of love, compassion, caring and friendship. Both have lost those closest to them and are able to find comfort in each other. Hurley adds, "As these movies so creatively suggest, helping children open up to aligning with someone different can result in a whole new way of looking at things." Here are some ways parents can encourage children to connect with a world outside the immediate family: Be Open-Minded. Find ways to help your child identify the differences between themselves and prospective friends and look

So does the live-action remake of the animated classic "Pete's Dragon." for ways those differences can make playing together more fun. Adopt Optimism. A person different from your child doesn't have to be viewed as a stranger. If he or she is friendly and open, everything else should fall into place. Make It About Others. Help your child figure out how to show interest in someone else. Simple starter questions like "what are your favorite games?" or "do you like outdoor or indoor games better?" can prompt a lively discussion. Make Them Laugh. Laughter makes conversation fun and joyful. Encourage your children to be silly, to share their sense of humor with others and to not take anything too seriously-just have fun with getting to know others! Initiate Hang-Out Time. Help your child be brave enough to make the first move and invite a new friend to spend time together. Whatever the activity, the important thing is bonding. And if you support it, they're more apt to take the chance and see what happens. Discover Mutual Passions. If your son or daughter sees a new friend light up when talking about something, encourage your child to ask more questions about the subject. Or if there's a key word that provides a clue to their friend's interest, suggest they use that to talk more in detail. You'll be surprised how helpful that can be in fostering a meaningful connection.

With all the trouble that flatlanders can cause when they invade for the snow days, this pair of snow people stuck around Jess Martin Park over the weekend to greet and put smiles on the faces of anyone who wandered by. Numerous reports were made once again of visitors not respecting people or property, and after the melt oﬀ there will no doubt be the need to pick up trash and mend some fencing through out the back country. There were also sightings of snow people elfs on tables and roadsides through out the area. We may see another influx of visitors over the New Years weekend as weather predictions are for another cold storm to hit the area Friday ands Saturday.

Dave is a wanderer: He spent a summer working the local chuck wagon set beneath Wyoming's Grand Tetons; taught Environmental Education in South Dakota's Black Hills; conducted 3 week treks with under-served youth across southern Idaho; and explored the ruins and culture of Central America. Music fi nally pulled him back to the confines of New England and the Cambridge, MA folk scene where he completed his fi rst CD, "The Burn of Summer." The album enjoyed regular airtime on Folk Radio's WUMB, Emerson College's WERS, and brought selection as a fi nalist for Mountain Stage's emerging artists' contest. Dave's second album, "Gilding the Lilies" was recorded with the assistance of Boston's most adventurous lap-steele players, Lloyd Thayer, as well as the shrewd lead-playing and production of Jared Fiske of Fiske and Herrera. The CD was released in the fall of 2011 and was distributed internationally. He is currently working on material for his third CD to be released in 2016. Currently, Dave can be found touring various pockets of New England, and is occasionally "sighted" with the Bigfoot Research Organization, a loosely arranged, crypto-musical quartet.

The annual tradition of celebrating the New Year three hours early will be the perview of the back country’s own Haywire. Haywire is an eclectic folk band infl uenced by Joni Mitchell and Neil Young, venturing from the pop sounds of the Beatles to the beautiful ballads of Tom Waits. They feature well known tunes and some originals. Haywire is a four piece band including guitars, fiddle, accordian, and drums; mixing in a little bass from time to time. Jim Lydick and Kathleen Beck have been playing together for more than two decades and have written scores of songs. Drummer Paul Gordon performs in numerous bands through out San Diego and is a seasoned veteran having played with Mick Taylor, David Chester and Ralph Landis, and they feel happy to have him. He is versed in many styles of music. Maril Parker (the fashion plate of the band) has played music since she was fi ve and plays many instruments. She grew up playing piano, and took up the fi ddle a few years back. Haywires goal is to play for the love of the song and to blend harmonies and rhythms in original ways, making covers all their own. All live in the Julian or Borrego area and greatly enjoy the experience of mixing their sound! A soon to be released CD is called Random Fun Pack! Come out and enjoy some local flavor. Party hats, special songs, maybe some special guests and more fun that should be allowed is your best reason to party early, and then bed home safe and sound when the crazies hit the road. Don’t cut your New Years Eve short just come on out to Wynola Pizza and celebrate early, then you can be sure to get up early and watch the Rose Parade on TV.

• On Dec. 30, 1903, a fire in the Iroquois Theater in Chicago kills more than 600 people. The fire inspector had declared the theater "fireproof beyond all doubt," even though it had no fire alarm and no sprinkler system over the stage. An asbestos curtain turned out to be made of paper, and the exits were locked. • On Dec. 27, 1932, at the height of the Great Depression, thousands turn out for the opening of Radio City Music Hall, an Art Deco theater in a formerly derelict neighborhood in Manhattan. Since its opening,
more than 300 million people have attended events at Radio City. • On Dec. 29, 1940, London suffers its most devastating air raid when German planes firebomb the city. The next day, a newspaper photo of St. Paul's Cathedral standing undamaged amid the smoke and flames seemed to symbolize the city's unconquerable spirit. • On Jan. 1, 1959, a popular revolution led by Fidel Castro quickly takes over Cuba. After Castro nationalized Americanowned property and allied himself with the Soviets, the U.S severed diplomatic and economic ties, and enacted a trade and travel embargo. • On Dec. 26, 1966, the first day of the first Kwanzaa is celebrated in Los Angeles under the direction

Chicken Scratches Each year the family Christmas letter is outsourced. This year the chicken coop came in with the lowest bid. Alas…lowest is not always the best. In any case, here is what they ﬁnally produced. And let us crow about the season! I am Bruiser the Rooster and this year I am writing the annual Christmas letter on behalf of my hens who…[SQUAWK, peck, scuffle, SCREECH, SQUAWK] “What do you mean ‘your’ hens?” “Hen Liberation Front to the FORE!! “Girls! Girls!” “What do you mean, ‘GIRLS’?
You demeaning yellow..” QUIET! Or I’ll eat you for breakfast! There. That’s better. There is nothing like a cat to address a ruckus in the hen house. Now, let’s get down to business. Merry Christmas everyone, on behalf of the chickens, horses, us cats and our Personal Human (PH) who is known to the world as Kiki. As soon as I clean my claws of pin feathers—no, no one was hurt. Not exactly— I’ll get down to finishing this Christmas letter. Never trust a chick…er…rooster with a task that requires intellect….er, girls, GIRLS, that’s all right… I didn’t mean YOU, of course. So, the annual Christmas letter. 2016 has been a surprising year, we must say. We won’t even try to go into political developments in the human world except to point out that when you leave things to human intervention they usually get messed up. Here, however, all is reasonably peaceful, aside from a bit of women’s lib in the Chicken Coop. The year has gone by quickly—time seems to move faster all the time—and it’s hard to remember everything that has happened. Here in the animal world there is little new to report except the OctoChicks—eight rather cute (not to say toothsome) Speckled Sussex who arrived in early October. Some of the hens are getting long in the tooth (well, not exactly, but you know what I mean) and could best go into the cooking pot but our PH gets them mixed up, Barred Rocks, Gold Laced Wyandottes and on and can’t remember who is old and who isn’t. She told me to ask but, well, they’re FEMALE and they absolutely won’t tell the truth about their ages. Ow, stop it. I take that back, you aren’t female…OW!...I’m leaving. There. Outside the Chicken Coop is better. At any rate, the PH bought Buff Orpingtons last time and this time it’s all Speckled Sussex and eventually she’ll know who is past laying prime and ready for the pot. Except, between us, I’m ready to bet they’ll just hang around and die of old age, our PH being a wuss. Except for deer, but other people shoot the deer, and we all just enjoy the venison. So what’s happened this year besides everyone getting older? Our Kid came to visit along with Steve last Christmas, which meant we had a Christmas tree full of delicious little things to bat around. It’s most fun when you climb UP into the tree and get a really Christmasy feeling—it makes me purr just to think about it. Then Bill came to stay for a while in the Guest Quarters. He does know how to pet a cat properly, good for that, but he has a dreadful little dog. Buff y. I could eat her for breakfast except there’s too much hair. I let her chase me because I’m nice, not because I’m scared. We’ve had other visitors, of course, people from the PH’s time in the Foreign Service then other friends from other times who have nut farms (actually, THIS is a nut farm at times, in my catly opinion) and Jaimin Chokse and his family from India and Australia, and…oh, yes, Chris and Jenny Semmens from England stayed quite a while when the PH was away in Austria for a Baroque Music Festival, whatever that is, and she was then in Romania with some friends from HERE, then another English Friend who traveled off with the PH through Utah. The PH met some OTHER folks who used, apparently, Before Me, to be neighbors, the Lernos, on that trip and also stayed with some friends of hers from college in Colorado and met other friends from college Santa Fe before flying back to New York for a 50th Reunion of her Fulbright to India group…my sleek black head is in a whirl just thinking about all this. People are strange. If they were more like cats they’d stay home and purr. There is plenty for a PH to do here in Julian, anyway. Our PH still rides with our neighbors, Eric and Jenny, and goes to what she says is a Gourmet Club. They eat all kinds of things, vegetables and other yucky human stuff. She sings a lot, unfortunately, and the Julian Arts Chorale has given a couple of concerts this year. Oh, me. If YOU had a PH warbling Monteverdi around the house you’d know how I feel about THAT. Maybe next year she’ll stay home more but it doesn’t much look like it at this point. In any case, we cats are all well fed and happy and hope you are too. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. ME - SCRUFFY CLAWS On behalf of Two-Fer, Draga, Nixie, Tabby Two, Bruiser, 17 hens and 8 Speckled Sussex Chicks. Also of our PH, Kiki ….and us, too… Ben and Hidalgo (Haiduc is in the barn, eating)
Medical Marijuana By Michele Harvey An issue that fascinates me is medical marijuana. A few months ago we heard rumors of a medical marijuana dispensary being built on Newman Way about a mile from downtown Julian. These are still rumors. When the rumors hit the proverbial fan about the possibility of a medical marijuana dispensing site near town, a few people went crazy saying how crime rates would increase and lots of horrible things would happen to our youth. Actually the opposite is true. People who use marijuana recreationally seldom steal it and once they use it they are often too sleepy to commit crimes. People who use marijuana medicinally are often too ill to commit crimes and dispensaries have a lot of security because they carry a very expensive product. Where will the crime exist? I showed 10 magazine (TIME) and newspaper articles to one of those people that showed that statistically, crime rates do not increase when medical marijuana dispensaries open up for business in a particular area. Sometimes they actually go down. I watched and listened to that small group of people who were so upset because they were so sure that our crime rates would increase. Not one of them said anything about water use. I think that a marijuana farm would probably use a lot of water and that would be my concern because we have been in a drought situation for quite a few years and some wells have nearly dried up near Newman Way. Near us, at the site of the previous Santa Ysabel Casino is a medical marijuana growing site. I heard a conversation between a man who works with that facility and a woman who seemed frightened of it. She thinks that people may abuse the marijuana. He told her that it isn’t as dangerous as alcohol. I wouldn’t have said that. It’s a good argument for recreational marijuana, but medicinal marijuana is totally different. It can’t be compared to alcohol because it isn’t a substance that people use to get high. People who I know who use medical marijuana use it for neuropathic pain which involves nerve damage. I believe that wounded war veterans use it for this reason. Sativex, a pharmaceutical version of cannabis works against Multiple Sclerosis. It is approved in 25 countries to help control painful muscle spasms arising from MS. Research has shown that marijuana derivatives can dramatically reduce seizures. Marijuana is occasionally prescribed to AIDS patients and patients who get nauseous from cancer treatments. It helps increase appetite. Think about children who live with the pain of cancer. Would you take away their pain relief? Think about the 100 families who have moved to Colorado so they can obtain an oil that contains a certain strain of cannabis that has remarkable effects on some children with epilepsy. The oil is high in a chemical called CBD and low in THC, the chemical that makes people high. Israeli researchers are exploring the use of cannabis for the potential treatment of severe brain injuries. In 2003 Nobel Laureate Julius Axelrod and 2 colleagues obtained a patent for its anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective properties. The drug’s iff y legal status has held up further research in ways that marijuana can help in the treatment of Alzheimer’s. Medical marijuana comes in edibles, drinkables and tinctures. I know people who use a cannabis salve on their hands to help calm down hand tremors. In the conversation that I overheard, the man explained that all the chemicals that make a person high from marijuana are taken out when it’s used for medical purposes. Therefore there is no reason to abuse the drug. As my son says, “If it were possible to abuse the drug, the worse that can happen is it would make you want to eat a sandwich and take a nap.” By observing this conversation, I found many questions swirling around my head about medical marijuana. The subject of medical marijuana comes up a lot. Most of us don’t know anything about it and if our doctor prescribed it, it would confuse us. I didn’t plan to write a column about medical marijuana, but it is where my brain took me this week. I researched the internet and found some easy to read information on CNN, most of which I’ve synopsized here. I am not a marijuana user. However I don’t criticize people who find that marijuana soothes their medical problems. People, who are against its use medically, often haven’t researched its far reaching useful properties. Medical use of marijuana is so different from recreational use that it’s kind of like comparing apples to oranges. It’s good to open our minds enough to look up some of the things that bother us. I can understand why marijuana use is considered a bad thing by some people. I think that if they research the helpful uses, they won’t change their minds, but perhaps they will open their minds. These are my thoughts.

How Do You Know When You're Really An Adult? (StatePoint) Think back on those milestones that made you feel like you were finally a grown-up. The curious minds at Moen investigated the markers of adulthood, via an online survey conducted by Harris Poll. Some of the most common signs reported by those polled include: Moving Out Forty-nine percent of Americans said moving out of their parents’ home made/would make them feel like an adult. Why? This act may mark the start of financial independence, getting a full-time job and paying bills. Settling Down Fifty-four percent of Americans say that getting married made/ would make them feel like an adult. Though culture has changed, a majority of people still seem to value marriage, which also often includes parenthood -- another marker of adulthood for many. After all, what’s more grown-up than being called “Mom” or “Dad”? Homeownership Homeownership is a pivotal sign of maturity. For first-time homebuyers, the chances of finding the perfect place with new hardware and fixtures may be slim, but updating a home can be another important part of “adulting.” Brands like Moen offer kitchen and bathroom fixtures that are on-trend and easy-to-install, so DIY is doable for almost anyone. “Whether you’re renovating and looking for a faucet that speaks to your style, or need a handshower to make bathing your baby stressfree, great fixtures can help make being a grown-up great,” says Andrea Maher, senior marketing communications specialist, Moen.

tough, don’t throw them away. There are nutrients in the stems, so chop them up into small pieces and freeze them. You can add the stems to soups and stews, saute them along with onions, or add them to dishes just as you would carrots. Pot liquor, the highly seasoned liquid that is left after the greens are cooked, is full of vitamins and minerals and is a nutritious drink.
is much healthier. While I don’t personally believe in luck or eating certain types of food on the first day of the new year, a dish of dark, deliciously fresh greens makes me feel blessed all year long! MESS OF GREENS 4 pounds greens (mixture of kale, collards, mustard, turnips or spinach) 1/4 cup olive oil
The practice of combining different types of greens is called a “mess of greens” in the South. Cooking a mixture of greens along with pieces of pork is an integral part of African and AfricanAmerican culinary history. During times of slavery, if greens were served one day, the leftover pot liquor and a pan of cornbread often made the meal for the next. My vegetarian version for preparing a mess of greens retains the flavorful soul of the recipe, but
1 large onion, sliced 1 jalapeno, diced 6 cloves of garlic, diced 1 tablespoon sugar 2 tablespoons salt, divided 2 tablespoons pepper, divided 5 cups water 6 sun-dried tomatoes, sliced, and the oil (optional) 1. Wash greens thoroughly: Remove any brown spots or blemishes, and wash the greens 3 or 4 times in cold water to ensure
Greens Bring Luck In The New Year For many people, the new year is a time for making resolutions and eating certain foods for “luck.” On New Year’s Day, eating greens, black-eyed peas and cornbread are thought to bring financial reward. While I’m not superstitious, I do believe in the health benefits of eating greens. Greens include any vegetable in the cabbage family that doesn’t form a compact head, like collards, mustards, turnips, spinach and kale. There are several varieties of tasty and unusual types of greens, so be bold and experiment! Dark, leafy greens such as spinach, kale, collards and mustard greens are an excellent source of many nutrients. Greens contain high amounts of vitamin A and iron, as well as some calcium. Greens also are packed with antioxidants and are a wonderful addition to any diet. If the stems of the greens are

continued from page 1 After a concessionaire decided to rename the famous building the Majestic Yosemite Hotel, lawmakers looked for a way to ensure it wouldn’t happen again – at least at a state park. The bill they came up with doesn’t affect the Yosemite dispute, but it bars businesses who win state park concession contracts from trademarking names associated with the park. • Contractors - The fatal 2015 collapse of a balcony in Berkeley spurred legislators to examine how the state vets building contractors. The result was Senate Bill 465, which compels the California Department of Industrial Relations and the Division of Occupational Safety and Health to tell the Contractors State License Board when the state punishes wayward builders. The measure, watered down amid heavy lobbying from the building industry, also requires contractors to tell the licensing board about past convictions for felonies or other crimes that could affect their work. • Gun Loans - Another component in the gun bill sought to crack down on gun lending. Assembly Bill 1511 outlaws most gun loans, though it makes exceptions for hunting guides and for a limited number of loans to family members. • Sexual Assault - Sellers of sex may be getting some leniency, but the opposite will

The Julian News 7 be true for people who sexually assault a defenseless victim. The jail sentence a Stanford student received in June for assaulting a passed-out woman (he was released in September), fomented outrage and led to Assembly Bill 2888, which mandates a prison term for sexually assaulting people who are unconscious. • Prostitution Decriminalization - Sex workers under the age of 18 are victims, not criminals – that mantra guided several criminal justice bills this year. Among those signed into law was Senate Bill 1322, which bars law enforcement from arresting minors for prostitution or loitering with intent. • Rape Sentencing - Another bill reflecting headline-grabbing sexual assault cases, Senate Bill 813 brought accusers of disgraced entertainer Bill Cosby to hearings in Sacramento. It eliminates the statute of limitations for rape cases, allowing prosecutors to bring charges no matter how much time has passed since the crime. The bill will cover new offenses but can’t be applied retroactively. That means old rapes still must be prosecuted either within 10 years or, if the victim was a minor, by her 40th birthday, with some exemptions for child sex crimes or DNA evidence. • Distracted Driving - One swipe or one tap: that’s all the phone interaction you get while driving thanks to Assembly Bill 1785, which limits motorists to simple actions on mounted phones. Existing California law had already banned texting or making calls while behind the wheel unless a phone is handsfree. Assembly Bill 1785 tries to maintain the prohibition on distracted driving while allowing people to use GPS. • Public Financing - As public disgust with the role of money in politics mounts, more people have promoted the idea of publicly financed elections, in which candidates get public dollars rather than relying entirely on private donations. Until recently, that wouldn’t have worked in much of California, since a voter-passed initiative forbade public financing in many cities and counties. Senate Bill 1107 undoes that prohibition, allowing more local governments to set up public financing. In early December, the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association filed suit to block the law. • Mail ballots - Sweeping changes to how Californians vote are coming thanks to Senate Bill 450. Many of the bill’s provisions won’t kick in for a while, but one change that takes effect on Jan. 1 should make casting a ballot easier. Voters can now return mail ballots at any county elections office in the state, not just in the county that issued the ballot. • Voter Registration - Another effort to facilitate voting, Assembly Bill 1436, passed back in 2012 but takes effect on Jan. 1. It allows people to register to vote on Election Day, with county elections headquarters serving as registration hubs starting two weeks before Election Day. Technically it allows for “conditional voter registration,” which means the ballots aren’t counted until officials verify the voter is eligible and hasn’t cast a ballot elsewhere. Current law cuts off registration 15 days before Election Day. • Epi-pens - More places will be able to treat allergy attacks by stocking epinephrine autoinjectors under Assembly Bill 1386, which allows pharmacies to dispense the devices to colleges, private businesses and other venues that have a plan in place for using Epi-Pens. Gov. Jerry Brown signed the bill with some reluctance, saying the measure could save lives but lambasting manufacturer Mylan for “unconscionable price increases.” • State travel - Conceived in response to an Indiana law allowing businesses to cite religious freedom as a legal defense, which prompted concerns about turning away gay or transgender customers, Assembly Bill 1887 says state agencies cannot require employees to travel to states with
laws on the books permitting “discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender.” It also bars employees for getting reimbursed for travel to those states. Currently, the bill will only affect travel to North Carolina, Tennessee and Mississippi. Indiana isn’t covered because its law came before a June 2015 cutoff written into AB 1887. • Asset forfeiture - Liberal Democrats and libertarian Republicans found common cause on Senate Bill 443, which limits law enforcement seizing private property under a tactic known as “asset forfeiture.” State law enforcement or local cops will need a conviction to hold onto a share of property seized during federal investigations, unless the forfeited property is $40,000 or more in cash. In state cases, they’ll need a conviction to keep less than $40,000 worth of cash or property like homes and vehicles. Felons voting - As Californians convicted of low-level felonies increasingly serve their sentences outside of prison, Assembly Bill 2466 declares that such offenders have a right to vote. How that’s implemented is up to the counties, who are typically responsible for people serving their sentences either in jails or under post-release supervision. Hot dogs - Have you ever passed a dog locked in a car on a sweltering day and thought, “I wish I could do something”? Well, now you can. Assembly Bill 797 allows good Samaritans to liberate animals who are showing signs of distress, provided they can’t find the owner. They also must first contact law enforcement and wait for the authorities to show up. • Date Rape Drugs Law enforcement groups frustrated by Proposition 47, which downgraded drug possession from a felony to a misdemeanor, pushed for Senate Bill 1182. The bill allows prosecutors to pursue felony charges for people who possess drugs like ketamine, GHB and flunitrazepam and can be proven to have the intent to commit sexual assault. Attempted sexual assault was already a crime, which was a factor in Brown vetoing a near-identical bill last year out of reluctance to create new crimes that could create “increasing complexity without commensurate benefit.” This time, Brown let the bill become law without his signature. • Ballot sharing - Of all the surprising political stories of 2016, the ballot selfie battle was one of the least expected. Who knew there was so much desire for people to take photos of how they voted? As it turns out, enough for the ACLU to file a lawsuit. In any event, in future elections you can snap pics of your filled-out ballot and post it wherever you like, free from government harassment, thanks to Assembly Bill 1494. • Boycott, Divestment And Sanctions - Originally, Assembly Bill 2844 was conceived as a rebuke of the “boycott, divestment and sanctions” movement that manifests resistance to Israeli policy by refusing to do business with the country. Warning of thinly veiled anti-Semitism, Jewish lawmakers pushed to bar California from giving contracts to businesses that boycott Israel; a later version would have made the California Attorney General list those businesses online. The iteration that was signed into law has bidders for state contracts self-certify that they aren’t running afoul of antidiscrimination laws.

Smart Security Outsmarts Package Theft (NAPSA)-If you've ever expected a package that seemed to never arrive, you may be a victim of package theftand you're not alone. Some 11 million U.S. homeowners have been victim to package theft within this past year, according to a new study from August Home. The study, Package Theft Report: Outsmarting Criminals at Your Front Door, examines the rise in package theft and how consumers approach protecting their packages. Having packages delivered directly to your doorstep is a huge convenience, not only for shoppers, but for porch pirates who steal your packages before you even realize they've been delivered. Thieves have been known to follow delivery trucks, watching for prime targets. These thieves commonly strike during work hours when many homes are empty, which was the case for 74 percent of victims who had a package stolen within the last year. Package theft victims also reported being home (22 percent) or on vacation (17 percent) while the crime was committed. The frustrations associated with this growing issue goes beyond the theft to the inconvenience of having to navigate next steps as consumers attempt to resolve the issue. Victims reported spending close to $200 to replace each stolen package, and noted that they were forced to stay home when expecting deliveries (49 percent) or leave work early to meet the delivery person (20 percent) to prevent theft. As on-demand services, like Amazon Prime, offer delivery options faster than the time it would take to purchase goods in-person, more Americans are increasingly looking to online shopping to suit their needs. Not just a seasonal phenomenon, 26 percent of U.S. homeowners receive packages on a weekly basis and 39 percent on a monthly basis, which doesn't take into account the influx of deliveries surrounding various holidays. There are basic precautions that consumers can take to mitigate the risk of package theft, such as having shipments sent to their office, getting a post office box, diligently monitoring tracking numbers or paying extra for signature confirmation-all of which take the convenience out of home delivery. Thanks to the ease of smart home security, these old standby solutions are meeting their technological match. Smart home technology significantly improves the way homeowners receive deliveries, and with accessories like app-controlled doorbell cameras, consumers can be instantly alerted when someone is at their front doorwhether it is a delivery person or a would-be package thief intercepting the delivery. In a perfect world, 28 percent of respondents expressed their desire to have a delivery person leave packages directly inside their home. In fact, smart lock and doorbell camera features that allow for remote monitoring of one's front door made 94 percent of previous package theft victims feel more comfortable allowing in-home delivery when they're not home. According to 77 percent of homeowners and 86 percent of previous package theft victims, smart locks are valued as a solution for in-home delivery, providing the ability to easily grant remote access to their home via their smartphone. Doorbell cameras increase comfort even more, with the peace of mind to see anyone at your door, from anywhere, and enabling you to alert the proper authorities and stop the crime in its tracks. "Package theft is increasing exponentially. And this doesn't just affect consumers' wallets as they replace stolen goods, it's also a threat to them feeling safe and secure at home," said Jason Johnson, CEO of August

Why Are You Avoiding the Doctor?
(StatePoint) Most Americans want to stay healthy and prevent disease and illness. For many, this means getting regular checkups and using their health plan benefits. For others, it seems that ignorance is bliss. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Americans get their preventive services only about half the time, even though preventive care is fully covered at no cost by most health plans under the Affordable Care Act. Preventive services save lives and decrease suffering from advanced illnesses. Vaccinations prevent life-threatening diseases. Health screenings can find serious conditions early. Managing diabetes, high cholesterol and high blood pressure can prevent heart attacks, strokes or kidney failure. Despite these facts, there are numerous reasons people avoid their doctors. “Understanding why you avoid getting your needed preventive care is the first step in taking action for your health,” says Dr. Christina Stasiuk, senior medical director for Cigna. Dr. Christina and the experts at Cigna identified six types of people based on common perceptions. Thinking about where you fit can help you see why you may put off preventive care: • Procrastinators: Procrastinators fear that a check-up will discover a condition that needs to be addressed and will impact them personally and financially. They delay or avoid getting a check-up to cope with their apprehension. • What-if Worriers: What-if Worriers spend a lot of time thinking about unpleasant hypothetical situations and things. While some worriers see a doctor for every ache or pain, others avoid check-ups altogether because they anticipate an unfavorable diagnosis. • Solitary Sufferers: Many people don’t get help from their doctors to avoid revealing personal issues or concerns -- especially related to mental health or substance use -- because they’re ashamed and worried about being judged as weak by others. This fear also keeps them from using their Employee Assistance Programs (EAP) at work. • Super Savers: Super Savers always look for a good deal and hate to pay full price for anything. They pinch every penny and may view a check-up as not worth the cost. Some don’t even realize their health benefit plan covers preventive care services with no out-of-pocket costs, or how advanced diseases may cost them much more time and money. • Workaholics: People in this group value work over any other activity. They may consider a check-up to be a waste of time, and don’t realize that poor health can impact the work performance they prize. • Self-Diagnosers: Self-Diagnosers feel confident that they are engaging in healthy activities and the need for a check-up doesn’t really apply to them. They may not consider that early on, many conditions have no physical symptoms. No matter what your own motivations and concerns may be, you can get tips on taking control of your health and using your health benefits to the fullest at Cigna.com. “From vaccinations to early detection, optimal health absolutely includes preventive care. Get past the hurdles and schedule your recommended check-ups. It is crucial for your long-term health and wellness,” says Dr. Christina.
Smart home technology lets you safely open your door for deliveries, even when you are not there. Home. "With the average value of packages stolen costing $200 or more to replace, 80 percent of homeowners mentioned that they would rather invest in smart technology, such as our Doorbell Cam, which would eliminate this worry once and for all, rather than continue to spend money replacing stolen goods." The August Smart Lock, Doorbell Cam and Smart Keypad work together to turn
your smartphone into a mobile command center for your front door. Consumers can control access by issuing virtual keys or key codes for specific dates and times. You can also monitor access through instant notifications when someone is at your door and when they unlock and lock the door. August Home even makes it possible to review who accesses your front door with a 24/7 activity feed of all activity including video clips of those who entered and exited.

Protect Yourself With The Power Of Cranberry Juice (NAPSA)-If you or someone you care about is among the estimated 150 million women who'll have a urinary tract infection (UTI) this year, you may be relieved to know that cranberry juice may be a nutritional approach to help avoid the infection in the first place. The Problem Approximately 60 percent of women will experience a UTI in their lifetimes and one in four will suffer a recurrence within six months. UTIs are typically treated with prescribed antibiotics; however, antibiotic resistancewhen bacteria stop responding to the drugs designed to kill them-is possibly the single most important infectious disease threat people face today. In fact, each year, more than two million Americans are infected by germs that are resistant to antibiotics and at least 23,000 people die as a result.
According to an omnibus survey conducted by KRC of 1,000 Americans, nine in 10 adults understand that overusing antibiotics can be harmful to one's health. So what's the alternative? An Answer Thankfully, there is a small, nutrient-dense fruit that can help defend your body against UTIs. The best part? You don't need a prescription for it. It's the cranberry. "More than 50 years of welldocumented research points to cranberries' unique ability to block certain bad bacteria," said Dr. Christina Khoo, Director of Global Health Sciences and Regulatory Affairs at Ocean Spray. "This makes cranberries one delicious option that may help prevent urinary tract infections." Dr. Khoo notes that the key to avoiding the infection altogether is consuming an continued on page 14
Survey Unmasks The Peculiar Behaviors Of Pet Owners
(StatePoint) Do you share a playlist with your poodle? Take a bath with your turtle? It might seem far-fetched, but since many people treat pets like family, they often let them do surprising things. A recent survey, commissioned by Moen, conducted online by Harris Poll, finds that, among other things, 43 percent of Americans who have ever owned a pet have let their pet lick their plate before washing them. From bathing with pets to letting them sit at the dinner table, pet owners do peculiar things. “Almost all of us have had at least one furry friend in our lifetime,” says Andrea Maher, senior marketing communications specialist, Moen. “What’s different about today’s pets, however, is that we truly treat them like family. Sometimes, even better.” To make pets feel like someone is with them at all times, some people leave the TV on for them. And some do a bit more. Indeed, the average amount Americans who have ever owned a pet spend on their pet per month is $55, outside of medical expenses. “We’ve heard from customers who have installed Pot Filler faucets to fill dog water bowls, those who’ve created pet bathing stations with our powerful handshowers, and even some who have bathtubs dedicated solely to washing pets,” adds Maher. “It’s no longer a ‘man’s world’ these days. It’s a ‘pet’s world,’ and we’re just living in it.”

Women In The Workplace: What It Takes To Succeed (NAPSA)-Today, the majority of women are entering the workforce. So what advice can women follow to enhance their careers and help overcome barriers to success? Challenges Remain While today's opportunities are unrivaled, professional women face challenges and inequities. For example, women are still paid less than men across professions; they are underrepresented in executive positions; and studies show that women must work harder for a pay raise or promotion. "Women are aware that even when they have a seat at the table, they may not always be sitting level with their male counterparts," said Constance St. Germain, Ed.D., J.D., executive dean, College of Humanities and Sciences, College of Social Sciences at University of Phoenix. "Women are too often overlooked for promotion as a result of conscious and unconscious gender myths, biases and societal stereotypes that are in the workplace even in 2016. Men and women are engaging more than ever to address this, but there is still work to be done." According to a new survey by Morning Consult and University of Phoenix, only 33 percent of women believe men and women working the same job make the same amount. The number of men who feel this way is higher but still only slightly over half (54 percent). An underlying challenge for women can be navigating an environment that lacks support for their perspectives. The survey also found that one in three respondents agreed that there were too few positive female leaders at their company. More than Hard Work
Through my own research after years of study I can assure you with certainty of my findings. You may dispute me but while you are entitled to your own opinion, you aren’t entitled to your own set of facts. The fact of the matter is that in San Diego County which is a microcosm of the rest of the world, our death rate is 100 percent. No one escapes it, no one cheats death, some of us go earlier than others but in the end, our end, we all go. Where we go is what faith is and I wouldn’t hazard a guess. It’s funny, well maybe not funny but we seem so surprised when it happens. “I just saw him last week and he seemed fine.” Of course he was 94 for crying out loud but age as it relates to the end is so relative. If you’re sixty four, seventy five doesn’t seem that old. Of course if you’re eighty five, or older, everyone seems young. While I feel as John Donne did, that “any man’s death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind. And therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee.” Let’s take a look back to those, other than our dear ones, that parted our green earth this past year that were famous in their respected fields of stage, screen, sports, music, politics, philanthropy or whatever that brought them into the public consciousness. My apologies in advance if I forgot someone on your personal hit parade. In January we lost Schneider - Pat Harrington, Grizzly Adams - Dan Haggerty, Alan Rickman and the loveable Abe Vigoda of TV and movie fame. The music world lost David Bowie, Glenn Frey of the Eagles and Paul Kantner of Jefferson Airplane. In February we lost a giant of the legal world, Antonin Scalia. Bob Elliot of Bob and Ray radio fame. Maurice White of Earth, Wind and Fire, Pulitzer Prize winner Harper Lee who wrote To Kill a Mockingbird, Lennie Baker of Sha Na Na and Academy award winner George Kennedy, Cool Hand Luke, Airplane, and on and on. In March we lost Nancy Reagan and actors. Patty Duke, Larry Drake who played the mentally challenged Benny Stulwicz on LA Law, James Noble of Benson and Ken Howard. Comedian Garry Shandling and politician who some viewed as a comedian, Toronto Mayor Rob Ford and eighteen years after his father, we lost Frank Sinatra Jr. Joe Garagiola baseball catcher and announcer passed at 90 joining his buddy Yogi. April saw Grammy winner Billy Paul who crooned Me and Mrs. Jones, musical giants Merle Haggard and Prince and the
and Talent To continue rising in the workforce, it takes not just technical skill, but political savvy. "No one can afford to be apolitical at work if he or she aspires to advance to the executive level," St. Germain said. "While technical competence is important, in my experience, political savvy is a leadership skill that can be a key differentiator in an individual's success." As a leader in higher education and organizational change, St. Germain believes political savviness is really about emotional intelligence. It is about understanding the importance of building collaborative interpersonal relationships, building trust, maintaining one's composure and being able
lovable Doris Roberts pass. May saw the passing of veteran actors Alan Young, Mr. Ed’s straightman and William Schallert the dad on the Patty Duke show and the long time curmudgeonly CBS newsman Morley Safer. Giants in their respective sports Muhammed Ali, Gordie Howe, football coach Buddy Ryan and record setting women's basketball coach at Tennessee Pat Summitt died in June. Anton Yelchin who played Chekov in the Star Wars movies died at 27. In July we lost Elie Wiesel, Nobel Laureate, Holocaust survivor and activist. My old heart throb Noel Neil who started playing Lois Lane in the Adventures of Superman starting the year I was born in 1952 died at 95. From the screen Garry Marshall, Michael Cimino and past glamour girl Gloria De Haven. In August musicians Glenn Yarbrough and clarinetist Pete Fountain died. Actors Fyvush Finkel, Jack Riley from the Bob Newhart Show, Steven Hill, Law and Order and the always funny, tongue in cheek Gene Wilder left us. In September golf legend Arnold Palmer whose army of fans popularized the sport and Jose Martinez, Marlin pitcher, and Cuban refugee left us young at 24. Shimon Peres a giant in Israeli politics and the world stage died at 93. Actress Tammy Grimes, the Unsinkable Molly Brown, Kevin Meaney, Uncle Buck and musician Bobby Vee, Take Good Care of My Baby and The Night Has a Thousand Eyes parted the world in October. November was a busy month, so to speak as we lost singer Kay Starr, former Attorney General Janet Reno, poet and musicians Leonard Cohen and Leon Russell, actors Florence Henderson, Robert Vaughn, Ron Glass, Fritz Weaver, Van Williams and TV exec Grant Tinker. Gwen Ifill, long time TV journalist at 61 and the inventor of the Big Mac, Joe Delligatti died at 98. Actors and entertainers that died in December were Alan Thicke, Zsa Zsa Gabor 99, Gordie Tapp 94, Hee Haw, Joseph Mascolo, The Days of Our Lives, Bernard Fox, Bewitched and Hogan’s Heroes and Don Calfa, A Weekend at Bernies and musician Greg Lake of Emerson, Lake and Palmer. The irrepressible, loudly clothed sportscaster Craig Sager and American war hero, space pioneer, politician and patriot John Glenn left this world at 95. So there you have it, another year of who’s who that won’t be around for 2017 but who educated, entertained, set examples and made us proud for the time they were with us. It’s the end of the year and a good time for us to remember all those special people in our lives that might not have made the list of the rich and famous, but to you and me they’re still big.

to put people at ease. This involves mastering soft skills like communication and teamwork, and carrying them through every aspect of the job. "These skills are valuable for workers at any stage in their career. For those just starting in a new office, they can help negotiate a better salary, build rapport among colleagues and start off on the right foot," she said. "For those reaching toward upper levels of management, these skills can help you build trust across the organization and make you more effective both as a leader and team member."

Snappy Magazines Q: While going through a family storage area, I found about two dozen issues of Snappy Magazine from 1930 and 1931. Since they were tied up with string and labeled "smut," I was naturally interested. What can you tell me about them? -- Steve, Metarie, Louisiana A: Your magazines were part of GlemArt, which also included Gay Parisienne and Paris Nights. Not exactly smut by today's standards (or lack thereof), the issues often included pinup illustrations, occasional nude art images and suggestive stories. Look for contributions by Octavus Ray Cohen, Achmed Abdullah (Michael Romanoff ), and Jack Woodford, since they are especially collectible. According to "Vintage Magazines Price Guide," by Richard Russell and Elaine Gross Russell and published by Krause Books, most issues of Snappy magazine are valued in the $30-$85 range, but there are exceptions. Due to content, May 1931 and May 1933 issues are worth about $125 each; April 1933, $100; and June 1934, $150. According to these prices, your stack of Snappy publications -- if in good condition and complete -- could easily be worth several thousand dollars.Ê *** Q: I have an old 78-rpm recording of "Long Ago and Far Away" by Dick Haymes and Helen Forrest. I believe it is from World War II. What is it worth? -- Billy, Rio Rancho, New Mexico A: Your recording -- Decca 23317 -- was issued in April 1944 and spent 18 weeks on the nation's bestsellers chart. At one point, it was the No. 1 recording in sales in the country. It was introduced in the film, "Cover Girl," featuring Betty Grable. Hubba Hubba. Your disc is worth about $5 in excellent condition. *** Q: I inherited a small bowl, which my late grandma told me was hobnail glass. What exactly is hobnail glass? -- Martha, Postsmouth, Virginia A: Hobnail glass is a pattern on pressed glass that has raised bumps as part of its distinctive design. Dozens of hobnail patterns and variants have been made in a wide variety of colors. This type of glass was perfected in 1886 by William Leighton Jr. and William F. Russell of Hobbs, Brockunier & Company. Incidentally, one of the earliest names for this glass pattern was dew-drop ***

Mid-Year Motivation For Students And Educators
Student Fitness continued from page 1
(StatePoint) The school year can seem long for students and educators alike. However, a midyear infusion of new technology and tools can provide just the motivation needed to ace the rest of the year. Here are several tools and technologies that can pave the way to better, more enthusiastic learning at home and in the classroom. Social Media Teachers are increasingly communicating with students and parents over social media, whether it is tweeting updates about today’s lesson or field trip or using Pinterest to share ideas and student work. Seventy-one percent of teens use more than one social media site already, according to recent Pew research. However getting comfortable using these tools

(NAPSA)-Want to live a longer and happier life? It is time to strive for wellness! Wellness is being in good physical and mental health and provides a foundation for overall wellbeing. Everyone's routines and habits can be affected by stress (good and bad), life demands, crisis, or trauma. These changes cause emotional, social, and physical imbalances. One of the best ways to combat this is to establish healthy habits that promote wellness. As a result, satisfaction improves, connections to supportive relationships are strengthened, and energy increases. Wellness can improve quality of life and increase years of life. Focusing on health and wellness is especially important for people with mental or substance use disorders. These individuals are likely to die decades earlier, mostly due to preventable, chronic medical conditions. Carlton Speight, public health adviser with the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), says, "Many people who have experienced these disorders can achieve a full and satisfying life in the community, especially when they can access effective services and support systems." That's why SAMHSA launched the Wellness Initiative (www. samhsa.gov/wellness-initiative), which promotes improving mental and physical health. A hallmark of the initiative is the continued on page 14

® Dear EarthTalk: What is vegan leather made from, and how does it compare with conventional leather in regard to environmental impact? -- Katherine Sutton, Washington, DC Leather is stylish, fashionable and wearable throughout the year, but its production takes a heavy toll on animal welfare and the environment. While many environmentalists and vegetarians swear off leather altogether, more and more are turning to vegan leather as a cruelty-free alternative. But even vegan (AKA synthetic) leather has its environmental problems, given the toxin-laden base materials it is typically made from and the harsh chemical tanning and dying processes it is subjected to in order to make it into the type of shiny, tough and stylish material we are have all grown to love. Most vegan leather is made from polyvinyl chloride (PVC) or polyurethane. Says Andrew Dent of Material ConneXion, PVC is
a respiratory irritant and known carcinogen. And when it is exposed to high heat or landfilled, it releases dioxins linked to developmental, reproductive and other health problems. Meanwhile, polyurethanebased synthetic leather isn’t much better. Jody McCutcheon reports in eluxemagazine.com that offgassing from polyurethane can cause lung irritation and trigger asthma attacks. And the solvents used to make it malleable like leather are highly toxic in their own right. “When it does break down, vegan leather releases phthalates—initially added as a softening agent—which subsequently enter the food chain and the atmosphere, causing breathing problems, breast cancers, hormonal disruptions and birth defects,” adds McCutcheon. Of course, vegan or synthetic leather does have one huge environmental advantage over conventional leather: no animals are directly harmed in its production. According to People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), most conventional leather comes from developing countries where animal welfare laws are either non-existent or unenforced. A PETA investigation in India found workers were breaking cows’ tails and rubbing chili peppers and tobacco into their eyes “in
Even without the animal cruelty factor, vegan (or synthetic) leather has its environmental problems, given its toxin-laden base materials and the harsh chemical tanning and dying processes it is subjected to in order to make it shiny, tough and fashionable. Credit: Ikhlasul Amal, FlickrCC.
order to force them to stand, get up and walk after they collapse from exhaustion on the way to the slaughterhouse.” Of course, plenty of conventional leather comes from domestic sources as well. PETA says that millions of cows and other animals are killed for their skin every year right here in the U.S., with many of them forced to endure the horrors of factory farming such as extreme crowding, castration, branding, tail-docking, dehorning and other forms of control. PETA adds that beyond its pollution burden, conventional leather also “shares responsibility for all the environmental destruction caused by the meat industry” including carbon emissions and the chemical agricultural inputs and waste of cropland to grow animal feed. For the sake of both animals and the planet, stay clear of all leather, faux or real. Plenty of clothing brands are now embracing nonanimal materials and cruelty-free sourcing while keeping up their fashion chops. One example is Olsenhaus, whose faux-suede microfiber fabrics are made from recycled television film yet retain the softness, comfort and look of real suede. Another responsible choice is Dinamica, which makes its fabrics from 100 percent recycled PET bottles; the company’s eco-friendly suede look-alike material produces 60 percent fewer carbon emission than so-called virgin polyester. For more animal- and environment-friendly clothing and fabric options, check out PETA’s Cruelty-Free Shopping Guide.

Religion In The News Christians In North Korea Praying For Westerners, Aid Group Claims An organization supporting persecuted Christians in North has said that believers there are surprisingly not praying for their own freedom, but rather for their Western Christians who are tempted by money and material wealth. The Rev. Eric Foley, the head of Soul-based Voice of the Martyrs Korea, said that he has spoken with Christians in North Korea who've told him they are not praying for a regime change. "They don't pray for freedom and money. They pray for more of Christ and to mirror more of Christ in their life," he said. Source: The Christian Post, summarized by Pastor Rick

Isn’t it wrong for Christians to celebrate Christmas? First, let me say that the birth of Christ, or the doctrine of ‘God with us,’ is essential to the gospel. For believers, THAT is the celebration, and it is life-long, not an annual event. Biblically, we see that there were many that celebrated ‘God with us.’ Here

A King’s Ransom For ‘Public Servants’?
by Jon Coupal
Once upon a time we called them “public servants.” Today, most taxpayers struggle to keep a straight face when this term is used to describe the well-paid, elite who govern us. In a state where the median per capita income is just over $30,000, Gov. Brown, legislators and other state elected officials will celebrate the holidays with a four percent pay raise. The California Citizens Compensation Commission, whose members are appointed by the governor, decided the improved economy and healthy state budget justified the raise. California lawmakers, who were already the most generously paid in all 50 states, will now receive $104,115, earning them $14,774 more per year than the next highest. Of course, this does not count the additional $176 per day in “walking around money,” living expenses lawmakers receive for every day the Legislature is in session, amounting to an average of $34,000. The governor, too, is now the highest paid at $190,100 — Pennsylvania’s governor is actually slated to make $723 more, but Gov. Tom Wolf does not accept the salary. Do Californians pay their governor, the top executive of a state government responsible to nearly 40 million constituents, enough? The fact that there is never a shortage of candidates for this job is an indication that the pay is sufficient. So, the question arises, why do many government employees receive more than the governor? At the local level, most cities have as their chief executive, a city manager. Of 479 cities – out a total of 482 – reporting to the state controller, 279 are paid more than the governor. Of these, 24 receive over $300,000 annually. For some cities, paying their top administrator a high salary seems to be a matter of vanity. Councilmembers, who approve generous compensation, will take the position that their city deserves a highly-paid manager, the same way some car buyers justify the purchase of a luxury
vehicle. Just as the neighbors may be impressed by the new Mercedes, neighboring cities will be impressed with their city’s ability to overpay the help. This, of course, puts pressure on surrounding cities to keep up with the Joneses. While some city hall insiders will argue that higher pay is justified by a larger population, there seems to be no actual correlation. Escondido, California’s most generous city, has been compensating its manager $413,000 annually to serve a population of 151,000. In slightly larger Palmdale, the manager receives $138,000 to look after 160,000 residents. And then there is Garden Grove with a population of 177,000 where the city manager gets $89,000. A few years ago, the city manager in Bell went to prison for illegally compensating himself $800,000 per year. However, although it may not be illegal, the city of Vernon stands out as a candidate for the most profligate in the state. Its top executive is paid more than $328,000. The city’s population is only 210, which means that each resident is responsible for over $1,560 to compensate the manager. (The rumor that Vernon’s top executive insists on being called “Your Majesty” could not be verified.) Another small city, Gustine in Merced County, with a population of 5,482 gets the award for most frugal. It pays its city manager $909 annually. While there are other areas of government employee compensation that beg examination, the range of pay for city managers seems to be the most irrational. Still, none of these local administrators is close to the state’s top salary of $3.35 million. But since the program generates the revenue to pay UCLA football coach Jim Mora, he is more likely to be criticized for his record more than his salary. 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 notoriously prolific American author and academic Isaac Asimov, who died in 1992, who made the following sage observation: "There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.'" • If you're like 10 to 20 percent of the U.S. population, you suffer from "coulrophobia," a fear of clowns. • In Linden, California, a man saw a rabbit scurry into an irrigation pipe. Worried about the animal's safety, he got two other men to help him lift the 44-foot-long pipe and urge the rabbit out. Their kindly behavior wasn't rewarded, however; while the men were lifting it, the pipe touched a 12,000-volt electrical wire, electrocuting all three of the Good Samaritans. • Those who suffer from Moebius syndrome are incapable of showing expressions on their faces -- not a frown or a smile or a quizzical lift of an eyebrow. They often are found sleeping with their eyes open. • Between 1976 and 1987, no red M&M candies were produced. • A collection of items that belonged to Eva Braun, Adolf Hitler's longtime companion (and, very briefly, his wife), recently went up for auction. Among the items was a pair of her underwear, lilac with white lace and ribbon trim, embroidered with her initials. An unnamed collector bought the undergarment for more than $3,500. • If you want to get a karat's worth of diamond, you'll have to mine, on average, 23 tons of ore. *** Thought for the Day: "Every normal man must be tempted at times to spit upon his hands, hoist the black ﬂag and begin slitting throats." -- H.L.

eight-ounce glass of cranberry juice daily. People shouldn't wait until they have a UTI to drink cranberry juice, because once the symptoms start, they'll likely need a course of antibiotics. According to that same omnibus survey, consuming cranberry juice daily shouldn't be a problem-three-quarters of adults would rather drink a glass of cranberry juice a day than take antibiotics a few times a year. At a time when antibiotic resistance threatens public health around the world, research shows that consuming cranberry juice daily can be a nutritional approach to reducing symptomatic UTIs and, as a result, may be a useful way to decrease the worldwide use of antibiotics. So it seems cranberry juice is more than a refreshing drink-it may also improve the quality of life for women who suffer from UTIs by reducing their trips to the doctor, their lab costs and antibiotic use.

they are clean and free of insects. Roll the cleaned greens up and slice them into smaller pieces so they’ll cook evenly. Remove and reserve any large stems. 2. Using a large pot, season the onions with salt and sweat them in the olive oil over low heat for about 10 to 12 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the garlic, jalapeno, sugar, salt and pepper to the pot, and saute the mixture for about 5 minutes. 3. Add the greens and water to the pot and continue cooking for 45 minutes to 1 hour over medium-low heat, stirring once after about 30 to 40 minutes. Test the greens for tenderness by piercing the stems with a fork or knife. Cook for another 10 to 15 minutes, if needed. Season with the remaining salt and pepper. 4. Place the greens in a bowl with the pot “likker.” Serve with the sun-dried tomatoes and the oil, if desired, and the traditional Southern condiments: vinegar, hot sauce, hot peppers in vinegar, wine vinegar and chopped onions

who are or have been where you want to go. Their experience and advice can be helpful. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Someone close to you might feel like you have no more room for him or her in your life. This calls for immediate reassurance of your love so you can start the new year on a high note. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) The coming year will bring more people into your life. Some situations might not work out as well as others. But overall, everyone earns something, and that's always a good thing. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) The new year could ﬁnd you indulging in one or more of the hobbies you've always wanted to take up. And don't be surprised if they ultimately direct you toward a new career. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) The artistic Aquarian should ﬁnd more opportunities in the new year. You might even make some potentially helpful contacts as you gather to ring in the year 2012. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) The new year oﬀers challenges for Pisceans who want to make better use of the skills they now have and learn new ones. Personal relationships show stronger positive aspects. BORN THIS WEEK: Although at times you tend to be a bit judgmental, you are generous and caring and very much beloved.

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) With the new year's opportunities almost within reach, the Arian's courageous aspects are raring to go. And don't be surprised if a lot of people follow the zodiac's most trusted leader. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Change lies ahead for the brave Bovine who is ready to shuck oﬀ the tried and true to try something new. But appearances can be deceptive. Check it all out before you charge into anything. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) This week promises a peek into what the new year holds for the Gemini Twins, both in love and careers. Family matters continue to be a factor in decisions you're going to be facing. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) As you move into the new year, your travel aspects grow stronger, and you might ﬁnd yourself making decisions about a destination and a traveling companion sooner than you'd expected. LEO (July 23 to August 22) The new year holds both glitter and gold. This means Leos and Leonas should begin getting the facts they'll need to separate the real thing from the sham in order to make important decisions next year. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) A good way to start the new year might be to arrange for a visit to someone you haven't seen in a long time. You also might want to pick up that project you put oﬀ a while back. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) As you contemplate the new year's potential, you might want to talk things over with people
