Please join us on Tuesday, January 10 at 3:30 PM as we welcome Judy Taylor for this month’s Music on the Mountain performer. Judy is an award winning singer, songwriter and professional entertainer. She has performed all over the country and parts of Europe, Mexico and Canada as a solo artist, and with her all girl band The Wild Oats. Judy has appeared on many stages as an opening act for great legends of music such as Merle Haggard, Doc Watson, Bill Monroe and Gary Morris to mention a few. The Wild Oats is a group of multitalented female singers and musicians. Their music ranges from Americana, Spanish, Western, Classic Rock, Country, Cajun- Zydeco and Bluegrass. Taylor is also a Wild West performer (think - Annie Oakley, but with a better voice and smile!) Taylor is an accomplished performer of fancy trick-roping, gun spinning and bull whip artistry and now instructs others in voice and the art of Western performance. Growing up in Southern California, Taylor had the uncommon good luck to be acquainted with a very famous rodeo cowboy named Casey Tibbs. As a young girl, Taylor rode Tibbs’ horses and herded cattle on the open ranges (and golf courses) of Ramona’s Country Estates. These were the most impressionable days of her life and it set the stage for her quest and career as a performing cowgirl. It is an amazing feeling to be on stage and have folks cheering you on for doing something you love. Taylor recalls that, “My music had come into its own. I wrote songs and recorded CD’s with my all girl band the "Wild Oats". I had won Southern California’s Country Music Songwriter of the Year award in 1998 and was starting to look in new directions so as to create something uniquely my own. I came across the wild-west arts of trick roping, gun spinning and bull whip cracking.” Taylor fell in love with these quintessential western skills. Taylor says, “I practiced, practiced and practiced ‘till I was an acceptable performer and then added those arts to my performance. Now as I spin ropes and yodel out my cowgirl songs to the world, I clearly see that I have been blessed and live in the heart of my dreams.” After traveling around the US and other parts of the world, Taylor settled down on her own ranch with horses, burros and all the necessary animals and gardens. She still tours several times a year and can be found at special events at city schools and other special events. Taylor was inspired by the icons of her youth, fortunate enough to see those same sparks rise in the eyes of the kids where she performs. “If there was anything I could share from my life experience, it’s that trail blazing is not as hard as one would think,” says Taylor, “And ‘cowgirling’ is a darn fine profession.” With all the distractions and fast pace of entertainment these days, Taylor hopes that carrying the torch of the American wild-west way of life will result in kids being inspired to learn the crafts themselves and choose to entertain with western arts and skills. There is nothing like the image of the western horseman to remind us of our roots. Judy Taylor always includes audience participation! The music is upbeat and foot stomping with beautiful harmonies and instrumentals. We hope you will join us on Tuesday, January 10 at 3:30 PM for this delightful and heartwarming performer.

Lake Cuyamaca New Years day, like Christmas Eve last week found much of the area with a blanket of snow. And like last week the flatlanders came by the car fulls. The major difference was the snow was not in town when most arrived, just the traffic. The Sheriffs Department did send a group opf traffic officers to stand at the 4 way stop and keep things flowing which meant the wait time from Wynola was only 45 minutes to get into and through town.

Once again the issue of Winter Snow and Tourist have surfaced in Julian. This is not a new issue. For years we have had crowds for Apple Days, Snow, and more recently the annual events of Christmas Tree Lighting and 4th of July parade. Issues arise as more and more crowds come to these events. So what do we do to make these times positive for all involved? Here are some things that have been discussed and encouraged by our local agencies: We know when these events are occurring, so be prepared! The state & county highways/roads cannot be closed unless it is for emergency situations. These situations include fires, accidents leading to death, etc. You have the right to be traveling on the road and it doesn’t matter if the traffic is backed up for miles. If you want to sit in traffic, that is your right. Locals, if you don’t have to be out during these times, don’t. The common question is what about getting emergency vehicles through? They will get through. Slower, but they will keep moving. It is a hazard, but so is July 4th at the beach, Super Bowl traffic, and rush hour freeway gridlock. It is part of activities everywhere. It is not just an issue for Julian. The sheriff deputies & CHP officers are on duty, are doing their jobs, are giving tickets, working on issues and enforcing laws but they cannot be everywhere during these high traffic volume times. They all can’t be on duty at once and they cannot pull everyone from the whole county to patrol one area. The emails to Diane Jacobs office are not just being passed along, they are evaluating and agencies are aware of these issues. Don’t think they are having any enjoyable time with this snow either. The people in our state voted for and approved areas of Open Space and Preserves. We want the spaces saved, but then we want them opened for the mass snow population. These laws can’t be changed at a whim. State and County Parks have rules and regulations they can’t throw all the rules away for a couple days a year of snow. The parks are open on these days, but they fill up fast. They display “full” signs when they are at capacity. They too are trying to come up with more solutions. Private property owners, especially those close to highways need to plan that you will most likely have to sit and stop people from coming on your property. Stop them before problems start. That involves staying outside on these days. Invite friends over to help. There are not enough sheriffs in the county to stand at all private and public properties. And that isn’t their sole job. No trespassing signs are a must, but your presence is also needed. It is important to stay calm and try to keep emotions under control otherwise issues tend to escalate instead of dissipate. Sheriff Volunteer programs are in place. They need volunteers! Please go to their web site and apply! This would help immensely. http:// www.sdsheriff.net/recruitment.html. There are specific requirements, so any that qualify would be beneficial. These volunteers could help at the cemetery, in town at crossing areas, and other spots deemed by the sheriff ’s department. Probably 90% of our visitors are polite, respectful and enjoy our beautiful countryside. It is a small percentage of people that cause so many frustrations. As a community, we should be able to act positively to these few and help one another out during these times. Start brainstorming and change these few crazy days into positive crazy days! It takes a community to get out and act positive and not just complain. We all get frustrated during times of high traffic volume. Other outlying areas in the Julian community have issues during hunting season. These same principles apply to them also. A group was re-established 2 years ago and is called The Mountain Managers. The group meets twice a year to address issues that arise in our area. These managers include: CHP, Sheriff, Cal Fire, Julian Cuyamaca Volunteer Fire, Cal Trans, County Road Department, State & Co. Parks, Fish & Game, Cuyamaca Lake, and a 5 person community member representatives. After these meetings we have held public meetings at the town hall and also published discussion items in the Julian News. For further assistance please leave specific written questions/ concerns that you would like addressed at our next Manager’s Meeting on my email email@example.com. I will take them with me and ask for answers. I’m sure they will also have those emails sent to Supervisor Jacobs office and other agencies for discussion. Generally our meetings are in Feb/March and Sept/Oct timelines. Stacy Peyakov(Honorary Mayor) *** If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them. — Henry David Thoreau ***

ACCEPT Bettie Rikansrud will be the Artist of the Month at the Julian Library for the month of January. Bettie received a BA in Art at the University of California at Santa Barbara, with an emphasis in Printmaking and Painting. While raising 3 children and teaching elementary school, she continued her art in portraiture. After she and her husband retired and relocated to Julian, she devoted her time to painting, studying artists, and taking classes. She is especially drawn to the early California Impressionist painters, such as Maurice Braun, Edgar Payne, and Maynard Dixon. She loves plein air painting, often finishing the paintings in her studio. The mountain area provides unlimited subjects to paint: mountains, streams, sunsets, and cattle grazing. The incredible light and atmosphere serve as her inspiration. Bettie is a member the California Art Club, the Julian Arts Guild, and the Borrego Art Guild. She exhibits bi-annually with the Julian Arts Guild at the Town Hall on Main Street in Julian. For the last several years, Bettie has participated in the annual Julian Artists Open Studio Tour and in the Borrego Circle of Art. More of her work can be seen on her website www.bettierikansrud.com

Pathways Sets Up Food Pantry Thursday At Elementary School Part In The Clouds by Bettie Rikansrud
January Is California Restaurant Month California is the No. 1 destination for food-loving travelers in America, and it's easy to see why. The Cobb salad was invented here. So too was the cheeseburger. The state produces 90 percent of the wine in the United States. And California is also responsible for the whole "locavore" trend, first brought to life by Alice Waters’ Berkeley restaurant, Chez Panisse, which opened in 1971. Possibly more than any other place on the planet, California has turned eating into an art form. From farming to feasting and everything in between, the California food industry has shown the world that dining and cooking can be one of the great pleasures in life. January’s California Restaurant Month, now in its seventh year, puts the state’s amazing bounty on rich display. It makes feasting even more accessible than usual, with a legion of participating restaurants in cities and regions across the state offering deals and special menus at various times during the month. And this year, more regions and cities are participating than ever— 36 in total. From San Diego to Sonoma, Tahoe to Temecula, the month of January overflows with sunny deliciousness. Here’s how it works: Participating cities and regions have their own restaurant week—lasting anywhere from a week to 10 days—during the month of January. During each weeklong celebration various restaurants offer special deals, such as affordable prix fixe menus for lunch and/ or dinner, or sizably discounted meals. “California really transforms in January,” says Farley Elliott, senior editor at the influential dining website, Eater LA. “It's when the weather finally starts to dip, people find themselves loving those rare cloudy days, and diners sink into deep booths for hearty meals like a cassoulet or pan-roasted chicken.” There’s more than just comfort food on offer during California Restaurant Month. From January 22 to 29, Napa Valley restaurants will be ripe with California restaurant goodness. At acclaimed chef Charlie Palmer’s Napa restaurant, Harvest Table, lucky diners can nab a two-course lunch for just $20 (or a three-course dinner for $36). Chef Palmer hasn’t concocted what will be on the seasonal menu yet but you can bet it will be fresh and local. That same week you can go inland to Stockton for some delicious deals. Local favorite Masa Contemporary Japanese Lounge is offering a $10 bento box lunch option. Pull up a stool to the sushi bar at dinner, though, and for $25, lucky diners get a choice of two special rolls from the long menu of insanely tasty signature sushi rolls. Heading south, if you like a seaside “splurge,” wash ashore at Redondo Beach’s A Basq Kitchen where chef Beñat “Bernard” Ibarra is cooking up a delectable $66 tasting menu of just-pulled-fromthe-sea goodies. Slurp down freshly shucked oysters, grilled fish, tantalizing chorizo, and “pulpo pintxo,” octopus cooked sous vide for six hours and then grilled, making for some of the most tender, melt-in-the-mouth octopus you’ll ever savor. Take a bite into this deal any time between January 13 to 27, as well as at other participating eateries in Redondo Beach during that time period. “After the frenetic pace of the holiday season, this is a good time for guests to relax and treat themselves to great dining,” says Chef Jay C. Veregge, director of culinary operations of the Harvego Restaurant Group in Sacramento whose restaurants The Firehouse, Ten22, and District are participating in the festivities. “California Restaurant Month provides guests a fantastic opportunity to have an amazing meal at multiple restaurants for a great price. From a restaurant perspective, it is a good reminder of all the incredible restaurants throughout California.” Bon appétit!
When Getting Arrested Becomes An Opportunity To Heal (NAPS)—Getting arrested isn’t something most people think of as a positive experience. For Leslie Caldwell, however, getting pulled over while under the influence of alcohol changed the course of her life. This wasn’t Caldwell’s first time driving under the influence (DUI), and it wasn’t her first time being caught. She had four prior offenses; the most recent where she was jailed for 35 days. As a single mother of three young children, Caldwell knew that this arrest, as a reoffense, was much more serious and could result in a much longer time in jail—and probably the loss of her children. After her last arrest and incarceration, Caldwell swore she would never drink and drive again, but while incarcerated, she didn’t learn about her problem with alcohol and related depression, and she didn’t explore treatment. She didn’t know where to get help. Three months later, Caldwell was under the influence and behind the wheel again. Drinking had become her way of coping and managing with life and parenting stress and she believed alcohol was helping her. Caldwell’s story, unfortunately, is not unusual. Even when the warning signs are there, many people have a difficult time reaching out for help, although they realize they have a problem. Not only are people with mental health and substance use concerns more likely to find their way into the criminal justice system, they end up staying incarcerated longer than individuals who were arrested for similar offenses who don’t have these issues. They’re also at a higher risk of being homeless, unemployed and without family support—and this, in turn, places them at higher risk for being rearrested later in life. Specialty Courts Can Oﬀer Helpful Alternatives To Incarceration Specialty courts deal with specific cases, such as those involving mental health, drugs, veteran’s issues, and domestic violence. These courts work to identify people struggling with such problems and find strategies to help them recover, live healthier, and make better choices. Adults and youths can avoid jail or have their sentences greatly reduced by agreeing to participate in community “diversion programs” designed to help them heal. There are more than 3,000 program sites across the country, many of which are supported with funding and technical assistance by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Ser vices Administration (SAMHSA), an agency in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. While it is most helpful to identify a person with mental health or substance use issues before incarceration, there are different points at which a person might be referred to a community program: when engaging with law enforcement, at initial detention or a first continued on page 10

Julian Library Changes Schedule For Music On The Mountain For The Winter The next Music on the Mountain, featuring Judy Taylor, will be held on Tuesday, January 10 at 3:30 PM. We decided to change the time to the afternoon for the winter to make for safer driving conditions. The music programs are always well received and well attended, but after seeing such high attendance at the afternoon show in November, and receiving feedback that the time worked much better who prefer not to drive at night, we are making a change through March and then will reevaluate.
ACTIVITIES & LODGING Proudly serving visitors for over 25 years, including friends and family of our backcountry neighbors and residents
Five unique guest rooms, near town, on 3 wooded acres with extensive gardens, benches and pathways. Our guests enjoy a full breakfast each day, goodies in the afternoon and unsurpassed hospitality.

Add drums, stand-up bass and lead guitar, they take those same songs and electrify them just like Muddy Waters and Howling Wolf did when they brought their Mississippi Blues up to Chicago in the 40's. It's the same great songs with the added dimension of a band and all at a comfortable listening volume - and great for dancing too. Blues the way it was meant to be played Friday night in the Red Barn at Wynola Pizza from six to nine.

The Trails & Rails Trio returns to Wynola Saturday night and they'll be bringing their latest CD with them. "Gatherin' Strays" is a collection of songs about the West featuring seven amazing new creations by bassist, Mike Craig. Mike had already surprised the group with his multiple talents, but never more so than when he showed up one day at rehearsal with the first song he'd written - "He's A Cowboy". Then he followed up, over the next few months, with 6 more originals! We were so impressed with the quality of - and the variety in - his song writing, there was nothing to do but get these songs out to fans of this music by collecting them on a CD we could send out to the DJs across the country/Europe who play Trails & Rails on their western radio programs. To top off the album's offerings are two wonderful songs by Walt Richards, along with a few older western tunes you don't get to hear very often - 17 tracks in all. The CD can be sampled and purchased at CDBaby.com (digital and hard copies) and on iTunes (digital) - but there's a special bonus for those who are able to buy a copy at Wynola this Saturday. You’ll get to see the music live as well - Saturday from six to nine.

POPE TREE SERVICE

All Your Tree Service Needs
by Kiki Skagen Munshi
They’re Not All Jerks
Snow! On Christmas Eve it feathered each twig and left a white shelf along every rail. By the time the dark sedan stopped on the road, though, it was half gone and patches of dark earth alternated with white and icy. From the barn it was hard to tell how many young adults and kids had been piled inside the car and were now swarming around it. They didn’t notice another figure coming through the fence and across the white riding arena, so engrossed in play were they. “Hi, enjoying the snow?” They looked up, a bit surprised. “Are we bothering you? We’re staying near the road.” We pointed out it was private property but, feeling the Christmas spirit, went on to say they were welcome to have a good time in the snow if they didn’t leave any trash and didn’t damage anything. Assurances rang out followed by a short chat. They’d come up from Imperial Valley, the kids had never seen snow. Did I need any work done around…they’d be glad to help in return for being able to stay. No thanks, just have a good time. Judging by the two foot high stacked snow snowman they were trying to build, it was clear this was not their usual métier. Sandmen, one supposes, might bring dreams but are hardly the kinds of things kids and their clueless parents put together. Walking back it occurred to us that perhaps we should have shown them how to build a snowman…but, then, given the snow depth and amount of mud it would have been half dirt and twigs and gunk. In any case, they were having a good time without help. For those of you who DON’T know… you form a ball of snow and pat it hard, then put it down and roll it so it will pick up more snow and increase in size until you can’t roll it any more. When snow is half gone, however, it usually picks up as much mud as snow… which is probably another reason it was just as well we didn’t provide Snow Man Making Lessons. As we walked away, the clear air brought snatches of conversation… ’What a NICE person’…’Mommy, can I eat some snow?”… We felt good. They had fun. Aunt Elaine sued to say that people usually live up to your expectations of them and this time they did. No trash. No problems. ... Just happy kids
A Farewell From Val
After spending 10 years of working here in the beautiful town of Julian, it is with a heavy heart that I must say farewell. To those of you who I have picked on, joked with, and gave lots of hugs to, I will miss you. To my friends who I have waved “Hi” and “Bye” to, coming to and from work on the 79, I will miss you. Thank you to those of you who always told me if I ever get stuck in Julian due to the weather, that there would always be a room waiting for me in their home. I appreciate you and will miss you. To those of you who whipped up food for me to eat on my lunch break and to the places I would get my daily coffee, thank you. To my sheriff friends, thank you for not pulling me over for going 80mph on the 79. (Just kidding)! To my babies who I have watched grow throughout the years, and to the new babies I will not have the privilege to watch grow, I will miss you so! I would like to give a special shout out to Michael Hart for allowing me to say my farewells in the Julian newspaper, but also for always being so kind. Last, but certainly not least, to my colleagues Sherrie Paipa and Lisa Di Paulo from Santa Ysabel, Denise and Dennis from Warner Springs and Stella Gomez, Michelle Huggins, and Wolf Desroches from right here in Julian, I will miss you the most! I’ve had some great and fun years with you all. (Oh, and stressful), but we always managed to pull through. God bless each, and every one of you. I will come visit when I can. Love you all! Take care. Your Crazy Postal Friend, Valerie(Val) Diaz
This column begins by seeming political, but it isn’t. A few weeks ago China seized one of America’s underwater drones. This is not good. Donald Trump told them that they aren’t allowed to do that. My question here is; he isn’t president yet, so does he get to publicly tell China what to do? Soon after that Donald Trump told them to go ahead and keep it. He told them to keep our underwater drone that will tell them which of their secrets we collected. Again; he isn’t the president yet. Does he get to say that? When I ask those questions I can make very interesting observations. One is that people seldom listen. Instead of answering my questions, people often go out on political tangents for or against Donald Trump. They include criticisms of the liberal media, when all I wanted to know is if an incoming (and not yet) president gets to make presidential threats to major powers like China, or to any country. I never got an answer, so I still don’t know if an incoming president gets to assume world affecting critical decision making before inauguration day. I don’t remember if previous incoming presidents were so vocal about world affairs before taking office. The Encarta Dictionary English (North American version) has several definitions for the word Observation. One is “paying attention, the attentive watching of somebody or something.” I like that definition. Sitting quietly while watching a bird makes its nest or feed its young is very fulfilling. Watching a sunrise or a cloud filled sunset can strike awe in the observer. I have 3 grandchildren living next door to me. Their ages are 5, 6, and 7 years old. I like to watch their interactions as they squabble and settle their differences without hitting or otherwise harming each other. Here in Julian we received a white Christmas. For most of us this is a wonderful blessing adding water to our drought suffering properties. For some it is a nightmare. Tourists come up, they knock down fences, they cut down No Trespassing signs and they invade local properties without permission. One local woman asked some tourists to leave her property. Did she hear “Sorry to inconvenience you.”? No. she was hit in her stomach. One of the invaders asked where her Christmas spirit is. We barely had any snow before the damage began. A small silver pickup truck slid off of Farmer Road, hitting and damaging a fence. The driver drove away without leaving a note or an apology. A different driver on a different day got stuck on a Farmer Road driveway. Spinning wheels while trying to get unstuck, he damaged the driveway. Did he apologize or offer to pay for the damage? No. From the safety of sitting inside my house, I can observe the trauma that some of my fellow back country neighbors are experiencing. I see many posts on facebook from people who are venting their frustration at those who are wounding their faith in people. The license plates that are purposely covered with snow so no one can report them; the traffic that is too thick for a highway patrolman or sheriff to penetrate, bad people take advantage. I don’t believe in vigilante violence, but at times like this I can certainly understand how frustrations peak to the point where a person might want to shoot the tire of a vehicle that is full of really bad trespassers. A flat tire could give a sheriff or a highway patrolman time to arrive and deal properly with these horrible people who make our peaceful lives a mess. My favorite sign this week says “You are not trespassers. You are targets.” I wouldn’t want anyone to get their guns out, but I’d like to think that these invaders with their sense of entitlement might believe what the sign says. As I stay in my gift shop day after day, I observe lots of people. A few aren’t pleasant, but nearly all of them are nice to me and I enjoy talking with them. Living and working in a tourist destination Gives us all opportunities to observe people from other countries. I watch how they treat their young children. I watch as the young adults interact respectfully with their elderly relatives. People who are not comfortable speaking English are happy to try, and because I don’t criticize their efforts and I don’t say the words for them, they try a bit more English. When words don’t come out quite right, giggling often finishes sentences. Oriental girls are exceptional gigglers. They are very contagious gigglers. People from all countries treat me respectfully and I’m sure they treat all Americans respectively. Because of this, I’ve had conversations with Canadians about their healthcare system. I’ve talked with Latvians about life after Russian rule. I talk with Filipinos about living with the threat of typhoons and I’ve talked with people from western Europe about living with and without the Euro. All of these conversations give me plenty to observe. My last observation is a visual one. Driving from Julian to Santa Ysabel, we get to the bottom of America’s Grade as we enter Spenser Valley. We are about 2 miles from Julian. We pass the sage green Wynola Produce building on the right and the road straightens out. Beyond the house and past the large bushes and trees, the land owner placed 3, 2 wheeled hay carts. The carts are near the road, just inside the pasture which is fenced in. Though I don’t remember how long they have been there, they were placed one by one at least a year ago. I remember seeing one cart and then another get filled with hay bales. Gradually horses discovered the hay, eating most of it and dropping some to the ground. In my mind I have pictured the small animals and birds that have made use of that gift of hay to line their nests and feed their families. The carts remained empty for a long time until recently when I noticed that they have been decorated with tinsel garlands, looking very festive. This person who cares for the carts owes us all nothing, yet we who drive by the carts have seen them arrive and we have seen the changes that have been theirs. The owner gives us all a treat each time a change is made and I look forward to each change. I thank this person who makes my world a bit more interesting, a person who may have never met me yet gives me new things to observe and enjoy. These are my thoughts.
Visually Impaired Reader Inspires Author (NAPSI)—Four years ago, bestselling author Mary Jane Clark spoke at the Friends of the New Jersey Library for the Blind and Handicapped’s Fall Festival. There, she met Ottilie Lucas, a former rehabilitation teacher for people with macular degeneration and other disabilities who is visually impaired herself. After the festival, “we continued our correspondence and one thing led to another,” Lucas says of Clark. “She decided to include a character in her next book with macular degeneration.” And so was born Terri Donovan, introduced in the first book in Clark’s Wedding Cake Mysteries series, 2011’s “To Have and to Kill.” “Mary Jane asked me to give her ways to identify symptoms that a person may be experiencing macular degeneration,” Lucas says. These include blurred vision and difficulty discerning the intensity of colors—symptoms shared by Terri Donovan, who runs a bakery and is the mother of the protagonist of Clark’s series, struggling actress Piper Donovan. continued on page 10

Chef’s Corner Cast-Iron Cooking I’ve joined the cast-iron cookware cult. We’re a small but passionate group with a common cause: the restoration of antique cast-iron cookware. I can’t pass up a thrift store or garage sale without purchasing one or two pieces, as
long as they’re in good condition. My cast-iron cookware is not just for display; I use it on a daily basis. My love affair with cast-iron cookery began when my mother, Angeline, gave me the heavy, black cast-iron skillet that originally belonged to my grandmother. The thing I love most about cooking in my grandmother’s cast-iron skillet is that it’s a direct connection to my history and heritage. I don’t fry foods very often, but my heirloom skillet is my pan of choice for the task. As I stand there turning pieces of fish or chicken in the bubbling, hot oil, I think about all the other women in my family who have done the same with this pan. Properly seasoned cast iron was the nonstick cookware of its day. It can stand up to high heat and almost any type of utensil. Castiron cookware also leaches small amounts of iron into the food, a
helpful benefit for those who have iron deficiencies. Cast iron heats up slowly, so using the cookware requires a little patience, but once it’s hot, it distributes the heat evenly and holds it steadily like an oven, and seasoned cast iron doesn’t require oil to sear or blacken meats. Recently, I purchased a large cast-iron skillet for my daughter, Deanna, which she immediately put to use to pan-sear fish. So, from mother to daughter to granddaughter and greatgranddaughter, the cast-iron tradition continues in our family, one fabulous meal at a time. And to think that it all started with a single pan from my grandmother, Willie Mae. CAST-IRON-STYLE SMOTHERED CHICKEN 1 large fryer (3 to 3 1/2 pounds), cut up into serving pieces 1 1/2 teaspoons coarse salt 1 teaspoon pepper 1 tablespoon poultry seasoning 2 tablespoons flour 1 1/2 cups water or chicken broth 1 tablespoon butter 1. Place a large, cast-iron skillet over high heat. Sprinkle the bottom of the skillet evenly with the salt. Wash the chicken pieces and pat dry with food-safe paper towels. Sprinkle pieces with pepper and poultry seasoning. Place the chicken pieces, skin-side down, in the hot skillet. Cook on high for 3 to 5 minutes. 2. Cover skillet with a heavy lid and turn heat down to medium. continued on page 14

Experts say breakfast is the most important meal of the day, gearing you up for work, school and play. NAPS)—Here’s news many families may consider a wakeup call: Studies show that kids who eat breakfast have better concentration and more energy.

less likely to become overweight even if they also had breakfast at home. Good News Fortunately for the many families that don’t have the time to prepare a full breakfast, there’s a nutritious make-ahead option kids love. Flavored with bananas, chocolate chips and tart sweet lingonberries, which have been called a “superfruit,” rich in antioxidants, it’s a nutritious snack they can eat on the way to school or tuck into their lunchboxes for later. Lingonberry Breakfast/ Lunchbox Bars 1½ tablespoons ground flaxseeds (or flaxseed meal) 3 tablespoons water 15 ounces chickpeas (garbanzo beans), canned 2 medium bananas ¾ cup flour, gluten free ½ cup coconut sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon ½ teaspoon baking soda ⅛ teaspoon salt ½ teaspoon vanilla extract 4 tablespoons Felix Lingonberry Jam ¼ cup chocolate chips, dark Preheat the oven to 350° F. Grease and line an 8˝ x 8˝ baking pan with parchment and set aside. Whisk together the flaxseed meal or grind whole flaxseeds and combine with water in a small bowl. Set aside for 5 minutes. Meanwhile, blend chickpeas and bananas in a food processor until completely smooth. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients, reserving the chocolate chips. Add the chickpea puree to the dry ingredients along with the vanilla, lingonberry jam and flaxseed mixture and mix to combine. Then fold in the chocolate chips.
Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Bake on center oven rack for 24–26 minutes until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Let cool in the pan for 10–15 minutes, then transfer bars to a wire rack and cool completely before slicing (this is important!). Slice into 12–16 bars. Store on the counter for a few hours if they seem too moist; otherwise, put them in an airtight container and store for two to three days.

When Should Your Child Visit The Orthodontist?
(NAPS)—While there’s no “exact age” for a child to begin orthodontic treatment, there are a few things to consider. Suggests Dr. DeWayne B. McCamish, president of the American Association of Orthodontists (AAO), “Somewhere between the seventh and eighth birthdays is generally when a child should visit an orthodontist. If a parent is concerned about something they observe, it’s quite alright to bring in an even younger child. “The orthodontist assesses the ‘bite’—meaning how the teeth come together. There is a wealth All children should get a checkof information we can gather up with an orthodontist at the just from watching how a child first recognition of an orthodontic brings the teeth together. Some problem but no later than age seven. problems reveal themselves at an early age, and some of these problems can be addressed while a child still has some baby teeth.” continued on page 14

What is the date of your birthday? In our country, we all have our own special day to celebrate what is special about us. It is our birth day. Yes, the party fun starts when we are turning one and continues as long as we live. We also get to celebrate birthdays for everyone in our family – and our friends’ birthdays, too! We celebrate birthdays all year round. In some countries, like Saudi Arabia, people do not celebrate birthdays due to religious beliefs. In other countries, like China, everyone celebrates his or her birthday together on the country’s New Year's Day. Everyone turns a year older at the same time! Children there may receive gifts of money. On special birthdays very long noodles are served to bring long life.

Tips To Save And Spend Wisely In 2017
Soft Skills A Necessity To Narrow The STEM Skills Gap
(StatePoint) Did you get carried away with the holiday spirit this past season? On the heels of hefty spending, the New Year is the best time to take stock of personal finance habits and make beneficial changes for the year ahead. Here are some useful tips and tricks to spend and save wisely in 2017. Think Long-Term Don’t neglect the future. It’s never too early to save for retirement. In fact, the sooner you start, the better off you will be. Invest through a company-sponsored plan if possible. If not, look into IRAs that can help you grow your wealth exponentially. Create Categorized Funds Consider the 52-week savings challenge. In the first week, save $1, followed by $2 the second week, all the way through week 52, when you put aside $52. Sticking to this plan results in $1,378 saved at the end of the year, as well as any interest you’ve earned. Creating a savings account for a specific purpose is a perennially sound savings strategy. Look for banks that are fee friendly, such as Ally Bank Member FDIC, ally. com, which allows you to open an Online Savings or Money Market account with no minimum and no monthly maintenance fee. You can deposit money easily through e-check deposit, direct deposit and you’ll earn interest compounded daily on With a little homework, savvy your savings. In addition, putting consumers can make 2017 the year this money in a separate account they spend strategically and save allows you to track your spending more. against the account balance. Use Shopping Apps It is incredibly easy to save money with a little online research. With a few minutes effort, you’ll find discount codes, loyalty programs or cashback websites that track your purchases and reward you for the extra step of navigating through their shopping portal instead of going straight to the big name retailers’ websites. Reap Rewards While no personal finance expert would advocate running up credit card bills one can’t afford, savvy consumers know how to take advantage of credit card reward programs for hotel points, airline miles or just straight cash in their pockets. “Use credit cards that reward you for the things you buy the most,” says Diane Morais, chief executive officer and president of Ally Bank, the direct banking subsidiary of Ally Financial Inc. There are often offers for opening a new credit card with a minimum spend, such as the Ally CashBack Credit Card, which provides a $100 bonus when you make $500 in eligible purchases during the first three billing cycles, and offers two percent cash back at gas stations and grocery stores, and one percent cash back on all other purchases -- as well as 10 percent bonus on rewards that are deposited into an eligible Ally Bank account. If you don’t want to open a new account, check your current credit cards for promotions or cash back offers, which can add up quickly on everyday purchases. *** If an idea’s worth having once, it’s worth having twice. — Tom Stoppard ***
(NAPS)—The United States has been battling a STEM skills gap over the past decade, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, where technology has advanced faster than the knowledge and skill level of companies and employees. To help fill this gap, employees must stay up-to-date on the latest technologies and skills. The less obvious but equally important part is learning the soft skills that enhance efficient workplace interaction. STEM skills alone aren’t enough anymore. Employees also need to excel in soft skills, like communication and critical thinking. Teamwork, for example, can be as important as technical knowledge when it comes to accomplishing most tasks. According to the Pew Research Center, jobs emphasizing social or analytical skills generally pay more than higher physical or manual skill jobs. “The lessons learned in the sandbox can extend far beyond the playground and may serve well in competitive environments,” says Dennis Bonilla, executive dean, University of Phoenix College of Information Systems and Technology. “Learning to work with others and develop leadership skills are some of the important aspects of improving your company, product or project.” Speaking Tech Effective communication is essential in every job, but especially in tech careers. Basic communication, via e-mail, phone or face to face, could be the difference in getting hired by a client or chosen by an investor. Learning how to communicate well with others plays a big role in tech careers. Employees must be able to explain complicated IT projects and progress in clear, jargon-free language to executives, who may not have the same tech vocabulary. There’s no “I” in Team A good product, idea or company can go so far on its own—only with a team with different skill sets does it flourish. Overcoming the skills gap requires bringing together people with unique skills and knowledge to complete a task. The more agreeable and reliable an employee is, the more likely he or she is to advance in the company. Thinking Critically and Creatively Companies and individuals today need to think outside the box, using both hard IT skills and soft skills such as critical thinking to stand out in a crowded space. Employees who can think creatively and innovatively are more valuable when efficient and cost-effective solutions are necessary. Thinking critically means having the skills to obtain, organize, analyze and disseminate information. With so much competition today, it’s important that employees are provided continuing education opportunities to learn the valuable soft skills not often present in the workplace. Helpful Resources Most soft skills must be learned and some universities offer degrees to help IT professionals stay ahead of the curve. With technology evolving at an exponential rate—and showing no signs of slowing— education no longer has an end date. University of Phoenix, for example, launched the RedFlint™ Experience Center in Las Vegas, an incubator, accelerator and co-working space to connect with experts, interact with the latest technologies and learn valuable soft skills. At RedFlint, employees, companies and students have access to workshops, simulations and top tech. University of Phoenix also offers online programs like the Associate of Arts with a concentration continued on page 12

Getting Arrested continued from page 3
court appearance, in jails and courts, when released from jail and re-entering the community, and during probation or parole. Any one of these points in the process can be an opportunity to identify someone needing help so that underlying concerns can be addressed and jail time can be minimized. SAMHSA provides screening tools, technical assistance, and other guidance to help mental health professionals, judges, law enforcement officers and others in the criminal justice system to effectively use diversion programs for nonviolent offenders—and to help the public to understand how these programs are good for individuals, families, and
communities. These court-based programs can also give people with prior arrests who are in recovery the opportunity to help others in similar situations. Some are hired to help identify and work with those who have just entered the system. These peers can more easily recognize the circumstances involving mental health and substance use disorders that can ultimately lead to an arrest. Their personal lived experiences make them valuable members of the treatment team as mentors, volunteers, or paid specialists.
A courtroom can open the door to dealing with mental health or substance abuse issues.

Jail Diversion Starts The Healing Process In the last and most serious arrest, Caldwell was incarcerated for 18 days, during which her attorney told her about a DUI and substance abuse treatment program as a possible option for release. She applied and was accepted into a program referred to by the Behavioral Health Treatment Court in McMinnville, Tenn., a program supported by a SAMHSA grant. She received a lesser charge and was released to a substance abuse treatment rehabilitation clinic, where she spent 36 days working on her sobriety. After that, Caldwell had to commit to an 18-month DUI program. It provided outpatient treatment three times each week and talk therapy with a supportive counselor. She also talked with the counselor intermittently if she was struggling with an issue or with her sobriety. Three years later, Caldwell is still in recovery and visits the DUI treatment program to stay connected to that support. She also regularly does cognitive behavioral therapy worksheets to help her look at things differently—from the negative and heavy, to the positive and hopeful. She’s earned her GED high school equivalency and is
in college, and she works with a law firm. She’s aspiring to higher achievement—both for her career and as a mother. “I was really depressed and thought nobody could relate to me—so I became a functional alcoholic,” said Caldwell. “Then I met other people who were going through the same kind of struggle. That helped me to start out and it helps me now. It’s so much easier doing this than living with actions that I regretted.” Caldwell completed the courtordered diversion program successfully and she continues a church-based recovery program now. The DUI program continues to be a support as well and she speaks with new groups of students to share her story and offer understanding and hope. When she has a bad day, she talks with her therapist and she has an exercise routine to help manage the stress. “I am a good mother now. The kids know that there are consequences for their actions and I don’t just let them do whatever they want, as they could before,” said Caldwell. “They aren’t on the path I was on—they have structure and are doing well in school. We’re all in a much better place.” For further information about specialty courts and jail diversion programs or to learn more about mental illness and substance use disorders, visit www.samhsa. gov/criminal-juvenile-justice.
• FISHING REPORT •
In part one of Basic, the story of my father’s arrival at Fort Knox dealt with the “army” way of doing things. Sergeant “God” and his corporals drilled and drilled the men, harassed them into submission of acceptance of a discipline and order that mostly teenagers and men in their early twenties had never experienced. The proverbial bouncing of a quarter on a bed is true but only one of the requirements of inspection of the barracks. The requirement of cleanliness of the barrack and personal belongings of these young soldiers was something that was taught, cajoled, shamed and often driven into their psyche through punishment. Saturday mornings were the time for inspection. This occurred after a grueling, physically and psychologically punishing week of training. The company commander or a colonel often accompanied the Sergeant. You would never want to embarrass your Sergeant because if you did there was “hell” to pay. Dress for inspection was in your Class A dress uniforms. Pressed sharp, brass shined, boots spit shined, nothing in your pockets. According to my father one of the great mysteries of basic was why the clothing had so many pockets but nothing was allowed in them. Your locker would have all your issued clothing in the proper order starting from left to right with the hooks of hangers all pointing in. Every button would be buttoned, fly zipped, clothing pressed, boots spit shined and laced to the top and tied with each bow of equal proportion. The locker itself would be cleaned and free of dust. The agony of being chewed out and the embarrassment when a wipe of white gloved hand on the inside edge of a locker that would reveal dust was enough to cause terror. The footlocker containing socks, underwear and other personal items drew the same scrutiny. Everything rolled and folded the “army” way placed in exact position and order. Not only were two men required to draw a cot’s bedding tight enough to bounce a quarter but the fifteen cots down a row were in perfect alignment as well as the army insignia on the blanket in perfect alignment, achieved through a series of string lines. The springs under the cots were wiped free of dust. Wood floors were scrubbed with brushes, GI hard, brown soap and hot water. The latrines were spotless. All the chromed plumbing behind and under toilets and sinks were scrubbed and polished as well as the latrine floors and walls. All the brass doorknobs were washed and polished. During my Father’s first inspection a corporal called for a chair, unscrewed the grate on an exposed duct. The Sergeant then climbed the chair, stuck in a white gloved hand and came away with dirty digits. In future preparations for inspection the man with the longest arms always cleaned the inside of the ducts as far as his arm could reach. My father never remembered another duct inspection but they never failed to clean the ducts anyway. The men were issued their M-1s after a week and they were taught to field strip and clean their weapons. They became part of the inspection and memorizing the serial numbers was part of the process. The purpose of all this and everything else at “Basic” was to establish discipline, order and cohesiveness of a force that
would act in concert in the terror of the battlefield. The Army was taking men of a nation of essentially different cultures and trying to meld them into a singular fighting force. My father remembers the agony of reveille at 0500 and seeing the southern farm boys on the porch just outside the barrack already dressed, having a smoke and ready to go. His bunk was just under the loudspeaker and he remembers always hearing the bugler’s lips against the mouthpiece prior to reveille. The bugle ruled life. Beside reveille there was the call for chow, attack, retreat, and tattoo (taps). The day was started with a half hour of calisthenics, jumping jacks, sit-ups and push-ups. Then back to barracks to make bunks and personal sanitation. When chow was blown you ran to the dining room and got in line. You then sat at a table and were served by KP (kitchen police). Breakfast was often SOS (the army acronym for chipped beef on toast, decorum does not allow me to tell you what the first S stood for but O and S stand for, On a Shingle) eggs, bread, butter. coffee, milk, oranges, pork chops, and bacon. My Dad remembers the food as always greasy. There was no short-stopping. If someone called for salt or pepper or any other condiment it went to the one that asked first. There was no shake of the salt on the way to the requestor. The lack of decorum of short-stopping was highly frowned upon as it was when I was a kid growing up. After chow it was constant drilling overseen by the noncoms. Learning to salute, the manual of arms, drilling and marching in formation. Learning the intricacies and movements of deploying in formation. The purpose was to train a large body of men to move quickly, in a disciplined formation and get ready to fight. Keep in mind that these men were tankers but the first six or seven weeks of “basic” was infantry training. At noon the bugler blew chow and you ran to mess. Lunch was generally meat sandwiches, coffee and water. After lunch there were more drills. According to my father it took about a week until the unit could march and perform basic maneuvers without crashing into each other. Everything was on a daily schedule for the entire seventeen weeks of Basic. Rain, snow, hurricane or the Armageddon would not disrupt the schedule and even one “F-Up” could rain discipline on the rest of the guys in the platoon. Training films were considered a break but whoa unto God the tired GI that leaned against a wall or fell asleep during the film. Dinner chow was hearty, meat stews, pot roast with heavy gravy, potatoes, vegetables and the ever-present large quantities of bread. Evening did not necessarily offer respite for the GI during Basic. Next time, fox hole, night hikes, the rifle range and more.

Souvenir Spoons Q: I inherited several spoons from a great aunt. Each is marked "sterling" and engraved with "Lois" and the years 1899, 1900, 1901, 1902 and 1903. What can you tell me about them? -- Gloria, Buﬀalo, New York A: Souvenir spoons were especially popular during the Victorian era. I suspect that the spoons in your collection were purchased and given to mark a birthday. They look quite stunning in the photos you provided, and I recommend you proudly display them in your home. I have seen spoon holders that would be perfect to showcase your collection. *** Q: I have a watercolor by Pedro Cortez that I purchased at an estate auction a year or two ago. How much is it worth? -- Ken, Providence, Rhode Island A: I get dozens of letters and emails from readers who are curious about artwork they have purchased. Most want to know about values. A painting or artwork can be worth a great deal or very little. It takes a professional to determine which, and that is why my answer for readers is generally the same: Hire a professional appraiser. Determining an accurate value requires both time and expertise. If you feel you have a work that could be valuable, it is certainly worth paying for the services of a professional appraiser. Case in point: A woman in Phoenix didn't want to spend $400 to find out the value of four etchings she wished to sell. She received $250 for the etchings, only to learn later that they were worth about a $1,000 each. Her refusal to spend $400 cost her about $3,750. *** Q: My uncle lived in New York City during the 1940s and had one of the ﬁrst television sets, a 1946 DuMont, Model RA 102. It is a console with a 12-inch screen. Although it doesn't work, is it worth much in today's market? -- Stephanie, Walla Walla, Washington. A: I found your television set referenced in The Antique Trader Radio and Television Price Guide, edited by Kyle Husfloen (KP Books). According to Husfloen, your set is worth approximately $1,200. The more expensive model, the RA-101-1A, which featured a motorized TV screen, radio and phonograph, is worth slightly more, about $1,500. ***

Dear EarthTalk: What are some ways environmentalists are using social media to further their causes? —Sam Baskin, Tullahoma, TN Environmental advocates and organizations have embraced the revolution in online networking in no small way to raise awareness about climate change and the need for conservation of wild lands and animals—and to generate support for specific campaigns and the green movement in general. Perhaps the most immediate way social media help the cause is via the mountain-top selfie. For many of us, a trip into the wilderness isn’t complete without a public post to announce our whereabouts. At the University of Vermont, researchers are using geo-tagged photos on social media to study the use and relative popularity of different parks and even specific trails. New tracking capabilities of personal technology also record real time statistics that can be used as a crucial defense of public parks. Social media has also been repurposed for environmental activism in several ways. Advocacy organizations are able to widely disseminate their messages through different social media platforms. By
One way people are using social media to further the environmental cause is by sharing their mountain-top selfies, engendering public support for the conservation of wild lands. Credit: Daniel Patman, FlickrCC delivering their messages in a short, dynamic format, these groups are able to reach a wide consumer base. However, it’s difficult to assess the long-term engagement resulting from these messages. Nevertheless, larger environmental groups have hundreds of thousands of online fans that drink up every post and call-to-action. For instance, the Sierra Club has some 625,000 “likes” on Facebook and more than 200,000 “followers” on Twitter. A number of environmental campaigns have used social media to apply key pressure on polluters, including the Greenpeace antiArctic drilling campaign. Groups have used disturbing videos and touching images alike to garner large-scale public support. And social media isn’t just for the large, well-heeled groups. Individuals are using social media to similar ends, telling their stories and drumming up sympathy and support. Communities
that are suffering particular environmental damages are able to tell their stories on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and other social media platforms, helping to humanize the issues. For example, victims of the 2010 Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill posted about the environmental effects of the accident on Facebook and Twitter. Social media platforms also effectively connect these stories to larger issues through the use of hashtags. This includes a recent movement nationwide to reach Donald Trump through his daughter, Ivanka, whom the President-elect stated he leans on for advice. The #DearIvanka campaign on Twitter allows individuals to raise their concerns about a number of proposed policy changes, including environmental deregulation and nominated officials. One such tweet read “@IvankaTrump Please work with your father to respect the environment. Our children’s future is at stake. #dearivanka #greenpeace.” “Social media has become an important tool for providing a space and means for the public to participate in influencing or disallowing environmental decisions historically made by governments and corporations that affect us all,” says Public Lab co-founder Shannon Dosemagen. “It has created a way for people to connect local environmental challenges
Help Protect Yourself From Pollution (NAPSI)—According to the World Health Organization, air pollution is the world’s single biggest environmental health risk, with indoor and outdoor pollution killing more people than smoking, traffic accidents and diabetes combined—but there are ways to help protect yourself and your family. The Risk Every day you are exposed to a barrage of chemicals that are not naturally found in your body which can take a toll on your overall health and wellness, including your immune system. Exposure to environmental threats can lead to a wide range of childhood and adult health issues. What You Can Do There are simple things you can do to minimize exposure to environmental threats. For example, the experts at the American Lung Association suggest you do not burn wood or trash, avoid exercising outdoors when pollution levels are high, and do not smoke or let anyone else smoke around you or your children. At home you can: • Use an indoor air purifier. • Keep filters on air conditioners and heaters clean. • Vacuum often. • Keep hard surfaces clean of any mold and mildew. • Open the windows to circulate the air when outdoor air quality is good.
• Incorporate a dietary supplement that helps support your body’s natural detoxification process and your immune health into your daily routine. The National Institutes of Health suggests eating a balanced diet, advising “A prudent diet is a key determinant to health throughout the whole life and could reduce the deleterious impact of air pollution on health.” Eating right is indeed necessary for maintaining overall health, although there are times we need a little help. Supplement Your Diet With daily schedules becoming increasingly congested due to work, school, and extracurricular activities galore, it can be difficult to maintain overall health and wellness through diet and exercise alone. Thankfully, a new, patented, dietary supplement called Avmacol Immune™ can help to stimulate your body’s natural detoxification process and provide immune support. This innovative supplement combines the essential ingredients needed for sulforaphane production with beta-glucans to promote immune health. Sulforaphane is a phytochemical associated with broccoli that stimulates your body’s natural detoxification process and supports its defenses against environmental threats found in the air you breathe, the food you eat and the water you drink. Beta-glucans have been shown to help support a healthy immune system. When environmental threats enter your body, your natural detoxification process works to remove them via two phases: Phase 1 enzymes process them into molecules known as metabolites. These metabolites can be potentially harmful to your DNA and need to be converted to harmless and more easily excreted molecules. Phase 2 enzymes do just that—they process the potentially harmful metabolites into molecules that the body can more readily excrete. Sulforaphane production, as supported by the ingredients in Avmacol Immune, boosts phase 2 detoxifying enzymes so potentially harmful metabolites can be more readily removed from
the body. The beta-glucans in Avmacol Immune help to support the immune system, which is often threatened by exposure to certain environmental toxins. The once-a-day Avmacol Immune tablet delivers “consistent levels of high-quality ingredients providing glucoraphanin and an active myrosinase enzyme. Both are essential ingredients needed to allow for the supplement to provide the full benefit of natural detoxification and immune support,” explains sulforaphane expert Dr. Brian Cornblatt. Research has shown that sulforaphane also supports the body’s defenses against oxidative stress and cell damage, supporting brain, heart, kidney and liver health. Avmacol Immune is vegetarian and gluten-free. It is packaged in BPA-free bottles and undergoes more than 80 quality checks. For more information and to purchase the product, visit www. AvmacolImmune.com or call 1-855-286-2265.

CDPH Releases Reports On Healthcare-Associated Infections, Influenza Vaccination Rates Among Healthcare Personnel SACRAMENTO - The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) released two annual reports December 28. The reports provide information about healthcare-associated infections (HAI) and influenza vaccination rates among health care providers. While California hospitals have made progress in preventing healthcare-associated infections, HAIs continue to be a significant public health issue in the state. In 2015, hospitals reported 19,847 healthcare-associated infections to CDPH. From 2014 to 2015, 56 hospitals demonstrated significant improvement in preventing one or more HAI type. Hospitals are making progress in preventing HAI with the exception of C. difficile diarrheal infections (CDI), which increased 8 percent since 2011. CDPH offered infection-prevention assistance to 73 hospitals with high infection rates. The department’s influenza vaccination report indicates that vaccination rates among health care providers have improved in the past five years. Since 2011, vaccination rates increased 21 percent for hospital employees and 11 percent for non-employee healthcare providers, such as physicians or other contracted staff members. Both the HAI and influenza vaccination rate reports include data reported by 392 licensed general acute care hospitals representing 419 campuses. The reports are on the CDPH website, and the data will also be made available on December 19 on the California Health and Human Services Agency Data Portal. Due to various factors in the way data are classified and validated, the information in this HAI report is not directly comparable to previous annual reports the department released. The report provides additional details about these changes. Using data from these reports, CDPH created an interactive map for the public, Healthcare Personnel Influenza Vaccination in California Hospitals and updated the data for the My Hospital’s Infections Map. “Hospitals can utilize the data in our HAI report to implement and improve infection-prevention strategies,” said Dr. Karen Smith, CDPH director and state public health officer. “This same information can help Californians stay informed about what their local hospitals are doing to protect against healthcare associated infections.” Links to reports: HAI in California Hospitals, 2015 <http://www.cdph.ca.gov/ programs/hai/Documents/2015-HAI%20in%20CA%20Hospitals%20 Annual%20Report%202015%209.12.16.pdf> 2015-2016 Healthcare Personnel Influenza Vaccination Annual Report <http://www.cdph.ca.gov/programs/hai/Pages/ HCPInfluenzaVaxReport.aspx>

• It was American cartoonist Bill Watterson who, in his muchloved comic strip "Calvin and Hobbes," made the following sage observation: "It's hard to be religious when certain people are never incinerated by bolts of lightning." • 'Tis the season for resolutions -- have you made yours yet? If not, here are some of the most common ones you can choose from: lose weight, eat healthier, get more exercise, stop smoking, create (and stick to!) a budget, save money, get organized, find a better job, and even just be a better person. Sounds great, right? I have some bad news, though: According to statisticians, only about half of Americans make any resolutions at all for the new year -- and of those who do, a quarter of them give up within two weeks. • In 14th-century Europe, not many people kept cats as house pets; they were too much associated with witches. • There is a dispute among literary historians concerning the last words of beloved American poet Emily Dickenson. Some claim that the last thing she said was, "I must go in, the fog is rising." Others claim her last words were rather less poetic: "Oh, is that all it is?" • You're probably aware that many high-rise buildings in the United States don't include a 13th floor, skipping straight from 12 to 14, just because the superstitious among us consider the number 13 to be unlucky. You might be surprised to learn, though, that China has its own version of the practice: There, buildings skip from the third to the fifth floor. The word for the number four is pronounced almost the same way as the word for death, so the number is considered to be unlucky. *** Thought for the Day: "History is a vast early-warning system." -- Norman Cousins © 2016 King Features Syndicate, Inc.

Visit The Orthodontist
continued from page 7 What To Watch For These signs suggest you should consult an orthodontist: • Early or late loss of baby teeth; • Difficulty in chewing or biting; • Mouth breathing; • Thumb sucking; • Crowding, misplaced or blocked-out teeth; • Jaws that shift or make sounds; • Speech difficulties; • Biting the check or tongue; • Teeth that meet abnormally, or don’t meet at all; • Facial features that are out of proportion to each other; • Jaws that are too far forward or too far back; • Grinding or clenching the teeth. Most children begin orthodontic treatment between the ages of 9 and 14. Beneﬁts of Early Evaluation A check-up with an orthodontist while some baby teeth are still present can be beneficial for youngsters and their parents. “If we determine that treatment will be needed, an early check-up allows the orthodontist to recommend the most appropriate treatment at the most appropriate time. We can also talk with parents about budgeting for treatment, based on their individual circumstances. Orthodontists routinely offer a variety of payment plans, and parents can look into benefits to reduce their out-of-pocket expenditures such as insurance, flexible spending accounts and health savings accounts,” according to Dr. McCamish. Many AAO members offer lowcost or complimentary initial consultations and a referral to an orthodontist is not necessary. What an Orthodontist Is Orthodontists first graduate from dental school, and then go on for an additional two-tothree academic years of study at an accredited orthodontic
