No-Cost Chipping Service Helps Homeowners Reduce Risk Of Wildfire Damage San Diego County, CA — Residents in many wildfire-prone communities throughout San Diego County are encouraged to take advantage of a free chipping service to reduce fire hazard around their homes. Currently there is no waiting list for this program, which is funded by a National Fire Plan grant from the Cooperative Fire Program of the U.S. Forest Service through the California Fire Safe Council. California residents in wildfireprone areas are required to have a minimum of 100’ of defensible space around their homes. A key component of creating defensible space includes thinning vegetation, often called fuel reduction. Disposing of this trimmed brush can be a challenge for homeowners, which is why the Fire Safe Council of San Diego County (FSCSDC) created this easy and free solution. To learn more about the program and to register, San Diego residents should visit the FSCSDC website at: firesafesdcounty.org/no-costchipping. Before signing up, homeowners need to prepare their chipping piles. Once the piles are ready and the homeowner has registered, the FSCSDC will schedule a trained, licensed, and insured crew to visit the property and chip vegetation on-site. Chipped materials will be left on-site and can be used as mulch – an added benefit of the program. For more information about the Fire Safe Council of San Diego County and its programs, visit www.firesafesdcounty.org.

New Year - New Board - New Opportunities At The Chamber Its that time of year again, a time for new beginnings, a new year, your new chamber membership (or renewal!) and new and innovative ways of working together. The newly elected directors to the Board consist of Tracy Turner (Wynola Junction Antiques), Barbara Hedrick (Wynola Pizza), Jim Wayman (Retired), and Robin Boland (Orange Book Directories). They join Directors Ed Glass (Butterfield Bed & Breakfast), Dave Klumph (Dave's Musical Entertainment), Adele Delgado (Julian Candy Basket), Rick Campbell (The Birdwatcher), and Kat Dupre (Kat's Yarn & Craft Cottage). These nine community leaders will be sworn in by Dianne Jacob at the special Installation Dinner held in February. If you would like to participate in more chamber activities, we would love your help. There are several committees for you to involve yourself in. The Board meets every third Thursday at 6pm and is open to the public. The Chamber Mixers are held the first Thursday of each month and are a great social way to get to know other chamber members. The merchants networking breakfast is held the third Wednesday of each month and is another great way to meet fellow merchants and find out what is going on! Both the mixers and breakfasts are held at varied locations around town, and if your business would like to host one of these events, please call the Chamber office.

San Diego County Grand Jury Applications Historically Low For the first time in recent memory, the San Diego Superior Court may not have enough applicants to draw names for the 2017/2018 San Diego County Grand Jury. The Grand Jury performs a traditional function as a “watchdog” over government agencies and investigates citizen complaints. Grand Jurors do not conduct criminal investigations. In November, the Court announced it was accepting Grand Jury applications from San Diego residents, a total of 47 people have applied. In a good year, more than 100 citizens put their names into the blind drawing. “It has been getting harder and harder each year to get people to apply to serve on the Grand Jury. We are having a hard time understanding the public’s lack of interest in the work of this very important group of people,” say Executive Officer Michael Roddy. Grand jurors are selected via a blind draw from each San Diego County Supervisorial Districts. The random drawing gives each District equal representation by population. At this point, the Court does not have enough applicants in Districts 1, 3 or 5. The Court draws six applicants from each district to cover the alternates and serving jurors. Currently the Court has only has four applicants for District 3, three applicants in District 1 and one applicant in District 5. Applications are now available by telephone at 619-450-7272 continued on page 3



Pippi Longstocking, Saturday At The Library The Julian branch library is pleased to be hosting the Swedish Center at 2 PM on Saturday, January 14, 2017 as they present a short play on the life of Children’s book character, Pippi Longstocking. Following the play, there will be other activities for children and youth, and a lecture for adults in the community room by SDSU professor, Dr. Carole Scott, on the importance of International Children’s Literature. Eight children from the Swedish School of San Diego will be part of the performance and you are invited to interact with the performers. Swedish author Astrid Lindgren began the stories of Pippi Longstocking (Pippi Långstrump) in 1944 at the request of her 9-year daughter who wanted a get-well story while ill and at home away from school. The stories morphed into adventurous tales of a young girl meeting life’s challenges with super-human powers. While Pippi is nonconforming and unconventional, she has good common sense, is trustworthy, loyal, assertive, and abhors unreasonableness. She values her friends, is kind and friendly and, most importantly, confident and self-sufficient. Pippi’s, unlikely character may have become the embodiment of many Swedish cultural and

Pippi: Emma Åkesson affiliates. “We are excited to be hosting this cultural and literacy event, allowing others to learn more about Pippi Longstocking,” says Colleen Baker, Branch librarian. “Julian is blessed to have many connections that bring us amazing events; this one will be fun for all ages.” The Julian Branch is located at 1850 Highway 78, Julian.

Pippi shows that a way exists with strength and good character and some understanding from a few adults, for young people to forge ahead in the face of adversity. Many children and adults in our multi-cultural society have a cursory acquaintance with the stories of Pippi and the author Astrid Lindgren. Lindgren had a gift for storytelling and a concern for humanity. Her books and life demonstrated this concern via her support for the powerless and abused. She could, however, never have dreamed that her books about Pippi would have such global and enduring impact. She is the world’s 18th most translated author, and 3rd most translated of children’s books selling close to 150 million worldwide. Her books have been translated into 95 different languages.

International Books For Children Discussion At Library

The Julian library is pleased to be hosting Dr. Carole Scott, Professor Emeritus from SDSU, in conjunction with the Pippi Longstocking event at the branch on Saturday, January 14. Scott will lead a discussion for adults at 2:30 PM in the Community room about the importance of International Children’s books. (Other activities are planned for children.) In their book, How Picturebooks Work, Maria Nikolajeva and Carole Scott explore the dynamic relationship between word and image in children's literature. They treat picturebooks as a specific medium or genre in literature and culture, one that prepares children for other media of communication. As such, the authors develop specific theories, terminology, and working tools for discussing the picture book form. Picturebooks may be the most influential media of all in the socialization and representation of children. Spanning an international range of children's books, this book examines such favorites as Curious George and Frog and Toad Are Friends, along with the works of authors and illustrators including Maurice Sendak and Tove Jansson, among others. As a Senior Scholar in the Nordic Children's Literature Network (NorChiLNet) Scott has been involved in a five-year series of workshops and symposia for Nordic graduate students in children's literature, and she has served on the boards of the Children's Literature Association and the International Research Society for Children's Literature. We welcome Dr. Scott to the Julian Library. For more information, please contact Colleen Baker at the Julian branch at 760-765-0370.

A message from the Chamber President Julian's Chamber of Commerce is proudly serving the community, and looking forward to more opportunities in 2017. The Chamber board election results were tallied at the December board meeting. Incumbents Tracy Turner and Barbara Hedrick were re-elected, with congratulations also going to incoming directors Jim Wayman and Robin Boland. Much appreciation to those who ran but are not joining the board; Jan Paulsen, Mike Simser, Roger Spilman, Zora Martinez, Krisie Morgan, and Julie Degenfelder. All were contacted and thanked for their interest in serving the community, and we expect they will all contribute to our efforts to promote and protect our town in the future. As Chamber President Ed Glass stated: "there are committees to serve on, and many things to accomplish." A summary of the year includes much, but first, a thank you to departing Chamber movers and shakers: *MIke Menghini, who continues to strongly support Julian after leaving the board one year ago. *Diana Garrett, a tireless member of many Julian groups this year, stepping away to spend more time with her best friend Don. *Patti Bell, former manager of RaboBank, who enthusiastically continued to serve out her Chamber position while fine-tuning the financial aspects and budget for our organization. *Dick Thilken, who passed earlier this year. Dick served on the Chamber Board many years, as well as giving to countless other community groups. We salute his life, service, and love for his family. In other news... Julian will finally have a new bank in early 2017, as Community Valley Bank opens their 4th branch here. Jon Edney, CEO of the El Centro based bank, contacted the Julian Chamber earlier this year to help plan, organize and facilitate the return of banking operations to Julian following the departure of RaboBank in 2015. A new group, the Backcountry Economic Development Coalition, meets monthly to promote opportunities for our region. Including Chambers from Julian, Borrego Springs, Ramona, Valley Center and Alpine, they are focused on improving the economies of the communities in the sphere of metropolitan San Diego. This is not about increased crowds of tourists and events, but about making our community stronger. Join us with your energy, enthusiasm and time. This is our community. Ed Glass, Chamber President Innkeeper, Butterfield B & B & Black Oak Cabin A New Webcam with a live feed on Main Street, showing the weather and crowds! We have a dedicated social media expert posting to our Julian Chamber Facebook Page daily, with over 5000 followers. And we are working on a Mobile App for Julian and the surrounding areas. The Chamber website is one of the best marketing tools for our members. With an average of 30,000 people using the site to learn more about Julian, every month. The calendar is the most popular page (averaging 14,650 hits per month). In November 2016, 4,283 visitors clicked straight to our lodging page for information of where to stay in Julian. More than a third of those landing on our home page, click to another page on our site, this is really great news. If you want to know how many people clicked to visit your website any given month, email robin@orangebook.com and she will be happy to run the report for you. The webcam was installed last month (along with one on the Pioneer Museum) and is proving to be a valuable marketing tool. Visitors can see for themselves our quaint Main Street, and the weather. Several TV news stations have already shared it and plan to continue sharing Julian every chance they get. Last, but not least, we are working on a Mobile App for Julian. This will make is as easy as pie for visitors to find our businesses. A mobile app does not come cheap, and we are looking into several possibilities from hiring a professional to create and manage it to doing it ourselves. The App should be rolling out in the first quarter of 2017. Listing on the app will be available to members at the lowest cost possible. One of the major benefits to our members is that the Chamber now has a contract with a professional Marketing Company. This means we have a plan and manpower to implement the plan. You will be receiving a call from Robin Boland within the next couple of weeks to tell you about specific efforts to improve traffic to your business and how you may participate. Be sure to respond to Robin’s call, it is strictly to help you promote YOUR Business. We look forward to a year of growth in 2017.

As part of the offering, the Bank will issue 823,529 shares of its common stock. This is Bank of Southern California's second common stock offering in two years, raising over $14 million.

Winter night skies (January and February) in Julian can be very unpredictable (i.e., clouds, fog and winds) and, of course, they can also be very cold. Still, you should bundle up, grab your binoculars or small telescope and go out and observe some of the spectacular deep-sky objects visible in January and February. The best time to observe deep-sky objects (other than the Moon) in January will be from January 19th to January 30th. The Moon always rises near 12:00 am on the night of the last quarter Moon (January 19th) and the sky will be darkest around the night of the New Moon (January 27th). Let’s start with an open cluster. Open clusters are compact collections of several dozen to hundreds of stars, each within our own Milky Way galaxy. The individual stars within each open cluster are bound to each other by gravity. I discussed three open clusters, the Double Cluster in the constellation Perseus and the Pleiades in the constellation Taurus, in my last column in November 2016, and all three of these clusters are still visible near the zenith in January. This January let’s move on to the Hyades - an open cluster in the constellation Taurus that is almost too large to seen in a single field of view in binoculars. The Hyades is the V-shaped cluster of approximately four hundred stars at the very tip of Taurus. The cluster ends in the bright orange-red star Aldebaran, which is unrelated to the Hyades cluster. The Hyades are the closest open cluster to Earth at 150 light years away. No observation of the Winter skies would be complete without stopping at the Great Orion Nebula (Messier 42) in the constellation Orion. This nebula is probably the best-known deep-sky object. The constellation Orion lies relatively low in the southeast in January -- its northeast corner is the bright red super-giant star Betelgeuse and its southwest corner is the blue-white super-giant star Rigel. The three bright stars known as Orion’s Belt are near the middle of this constellation. In the middle of a line of stars extending just below Orion’s Belt is the Orion Nebula. It is a star factory known as an emission nebula. Like all emission nebulas, the Orion Nebula glows because the newly born stars are ionizing the surrounding hydrogen gas. In binoculars, you will not see its distinctive red color but it will appear very bright and shaped like bat wings. If you have a small telescope you should observe the star Almach (Gamma Andromedae) in the constellation Andromeda. Almach is one of the finest double stars in our northern skies with one star of this telescopic double appearing topaz-yellow and the other appearing sapphire-blue. Spectroscopic research has shown that Almach is really four stars. Another ‘must-see’ star is Sirius, the Dog Star. Sirius is the brightest star in the sky. It is in the constellation Canis Major which is located very close to the southeast horizon in January. Sirius is so brilliant that it often scintillates -- appears to be sending out multi-colored rays and sparks. The planet Venus will be putting on quite a show in January as it reaches its greatest angle from the Sun relative to Earth (elongation) on January 12th. If you look in the southwest one hour after sunset on the night of January 12th, you will see Venus shining brighter than anything around it. Approximately ten degrees (the width of your fist held at arm’s length) to the upper left of Venus you will see orange-red Mars. Both planets spend the first half of January in the constellation Aquarius and the second half of January in the constellation Pisces. The planet Neptune is also very close to Venus and Mars during the month and you can see Neptune just south of Venus (1/2 degree) on January 12th. You will need to use binoculars to observe Neptune. Jupiter rises around 1:00 am on January 1st and two hours earlier by January 31st. Saturn rises about 90 minutes before sunrise on January 1st and three hours before sunrise on January 31st. If you are interested in asteroids, Vesta (one of the largest objects in the main asteroid belt) will reach peak visibility on January 17th. You can refer to any good astronomy website for detailed directions on where to observe Vesta during the month. If you are interested in learning more about what you can see in the night sky right now, visit the www.astronomy.com website and click on “The Sky This Week”. If you want more information about astronomy events in the Julian area you can go to www. juliandarkskynetwork.com. You may email the Julian Dark Sky Network at juliandarkskynetwork@gmail.com. be joining our board of directors. His expertise and guidance in mergers and acquisitions, as well as his extensive history with other community bank investments will help contribute to our continued growth and future success," concluded Rogge.

The Pride And Joy Of 4-H

Mac Moretti , Age 10 Julian / Santa Ysabel 4-H Club

My name is Mac Moretti and this past summer I completed my first year in the Santa Ysabel / Julian 4-H club and the Beef project. Just a few months ago I stood in the corral at the ranch with my Dad and picked out a steer for next year. It made me think of all the experiences I had in my first year in 4-H. Of course the Beef project is a lot of work and a large time commitment. My sister, Rowlynda, was my Beef leader, and my Mom and Dad supported me and helped along the way. After working with my steer, Patrick, all year, I took him to the Ramona Junior Fair. There he got a blue ribbon. I participated in Market Class, Showmanship, and Bred and Fed. The next step was the auction. I was very lucky to have buyers support me at the fair. I would like to thank everyone who came to see my steer, and those whom bided on my steer. I want to give my very sincere thanks to Katy Moretti and Eagle Peak Escrow who purchased half of my calf. I also want to give my very sincere thanks to Tina Plunkett, The Plunkett Family, and Sunshine Hair Design and Day Spa who purchased the other half of my calf. I sat with my parents and sister after the auction and my family told me how year after year the same community members come out and support local kids in agriculture. Without this support 4-H projects would not be possible. Buyers from all over the San Diego Backcountry including Julian, Santa Ysabel, Ramona, and Escondido come out year after year and generously aide kids in starting new agricultural projects and beginning their college funds. On behalf of the Julian / Santa Ysabel 4 – H Club I would like to sincerely thank all of the community members who come out to the auction and bid on animals, buy animals, and give extra contributions to 4-H members. I would also like to thank all the adults who make the Ramona Fair possible and volunteer on the Fair Board. I would like to thank all of the leaders and volunteers at the Julian / Santa Ysabel 4-H that enable kids to have projects and to show. Lastly I would like to thank my family and friends who gave me so much support and help along the way. 4-H has taught me so much already. Not only did I learn a lot about the Beef industry but also responsibility, stewardship, costs and profits, showmanship, and of course there were a few lessons in patience. Thank you again to my buyers this year and all community members who support local agriculture.

Thursday, February 2 Groundhog Day Tuesday, February 7 Music On The Mountain Kini Dye NEW TIME - 3:30

“If you like your blues with a down home greasy feel, you want to check out Chickenbone Slim and The Biscuits. Chickenbone plays in a traditional blues style, part Chicago, part Texas, part Mississippi, and all right! From community events, house parties, clubs and festivals, CB and his band will entertain an all ages crowd with style and humor. Chickenbone Slim not going to cut you, or break you in two. He’s a pretty nice guy. But when he gets a guitar in his hand, and the band is rolling through a greasy boogie, CB lays it down with such conviction and tone that is a bit intimidating. There are faster guitarists, and louder guitarists, but you won’t out-grease this guy. “I try to play something every night that I haven’t played before,” CB says. “I am chasing that tone, that phrase. I believe that’s how you find the real blues.” CB plays a primitive, tough, bare knuckle electric blues, born in the middle of the last century. With a talented band made up of top San Diego blues musicians, CB is able to explore and take risks with original material and interpretation of traditional blues. Sometimes his sound is more uptown Chicago and sometimes Southern Delta or Texas, but in an intimate setting it’s more juke joint than ballroom. His live blues performances are organic, situational, and distinct. No two shows are alike. “Sometimes we have to play almost acoustically, and other times we get to let it hang out, but it always has to be about the tone. I prefer a solid groove that is at a comfortable level, and we get all that and more with our vintage, low watt tube amplifiers.” The lo-fi approach makes the band versatile and flexible without sacrificing the energy inherent in traditional blues. To younger listeners, it’s a culture shock to hear music that is actually performed without loops, samples or repetition. The spontaneity and improvisation make it uncommonly unique. Friday night from six to nine the Red Barn will provide the ambiance Chickenbone and the Biscuits will provide the rest.

My Thoughts


by Michele Harvey

All Your Tree Service Needs

Welcome To The New Year

by Kiki Skagen Munshi

It’s Problem ... Last week The Kid sent a memo she had received from a young person working in an ad agency. The individual, now “gender neutral” asked that people not use “he” or “she” but “they” when they referred to, um, “they”. We pointed out that this could be confusing and that there is a perfectly good singular gender neutral pronoun in English which is “it.” Why not refer to the individual as “it”? “Kyle’s going to do the art and it’s got great a great sense of color.” Not perfect but better than, “Kyle’s going to do the art and they’ve got a great sense of color.” This was not well-received, MISTAKENLY not well-received in our view, and high-handedly not passed on to the individual in question who might have realized that a plural pronoun for a single individual poses…well, problems. We then pointed out what The Kid knew very well from her high school language class, which was Modern Greek. (Don’t ask.) Greek uses the equivalent of the English “it” to refer to children. Gender neutral, right? And quite appropriate for many kids, we might add. O andras (ο άντρας) the man. Y gynaika (η γυναίκα) the woman. To paidi (το παιδί) the child. Clear as day. Somehow The Kid found this less than convincing so we gave up trying to be helpful. After we stopped laughing. The more interesting question is that of “gender neutrality” as a sociological construct. Trans-gender one understands. LGBTQXYZ (lest I have forgotten something as we up here in the hills aren’t always quite up to date nor do we do well with political correctitude) as well. That’s not the problem. “Gender neutrality” doesn’t seem to be biologically based (look down, my friend) and may be mostly symptomatic of another, more widespread social problem. With a large population and a society that doesn’t pigeonhole most people by birth and social class, many Americans have a problem of identity. Not gender identity (usually) or citizenship (most of the time) but identity related to the simple fact that each of us wants to be recognized as an individual--unique, special, “me”! In a small school like Julian it’s not such a concern because everyone is different— there aren’t enough kids to be lost in a crowd. But in a school of 3,000 students, most living in similar houses, wearing similar clothes, living similar lives…how do you stand out? How do you express what you KNOW, which is that you are YOU, the only one you, you who are not like everyone else, who needs to be recognized as that unique human being you are. Not everyone is a basketball star, the most popular girl in class, the winner of all the scholarships and spelling bees so…how are YOU different? It’s an interesting question. Gender neutrality may be one answer. Perhaps not the best one. *** You just wish sometimes that people would treat you like a human being rather than seeing your gender first and who you are second. — Frances O'Grady ***

I’ve been looking at facebook posts to see how people feel about the passing of the year 2016 into 2017. It amazes me to see how many people describe 2016 in swear words. Many say that they will be very glad when it ends because it was such a horrible year for them. The people that I’m talking about live in or near Julian, California. We have had really nice weather most of this past year. We have had no major earthquakes or devastating fires. No oil spills or water contamination, which some of us have had in the past. I can’t think of any mass murders that occurred here. Our area has not been shattered by war. It has been a very safe year for us all and it finished with a blessed 2 to 4 inches of rain. I can’t imagine anyone starving to death here or dying from the cold because we have several local food distribution programs where a person could also ask for and receive a garment or blanket to keep them warm. Some of our schools give free meals to students who otherwise wouldn’t have food to eat. In the summer time our local county library gives meals to children 4 days each week from June through August in partnership with Feeding San Diego. Most of us have a decent place to live. I know that the biggest complainers all live in decent houses. Having a roof over one’s head to keep the rain and snow off is a privilege that some people don’t have, so I get really angry at the people who live comfortable lives and still find reasons to be glad when this year is behind us. At my home during the coldest days in December we had no propane so we had no heater. Fortunately we have a fireplace and we burned a lot of cardboard to keep our house from cooling down because it’s so difficult to reheat a cool house. During the warm months I like to buy comforters at the thrift store in Ramona. Prices for blankets and comforters are good during the hot months. During those very cold nights I put extra comforters on our bed until I had enough to make us warm and to keep us warm. No complaints. Putting my clothes under the sheets during the night assures me that they will be warm when I put them on the next morning. So many people around our wider world live in conditions that we can’t come close to imagining. Some countries like India and Bangladesh experience both drought and flash floods that whisk away their homes, sometimes their families and their lively hoods. None of that happens in Julian. I remember seeing the occasional mud slide here, but not bad enough to send giant multi ton boulders into anyone’s living room or harming anyone. In many countries a person can be tortured, beaten and executed for saying one thing against their government. Maybe a person doesn’t actually say a negative thing, but someone else doesn’t like that person so police are informed with lies and someone gets tortured and possibly executed. Thankfully that doesn’t happen in Julian. Our town is not controlled by a vicious drug cartel. It is not run by a bullying Sheriff. Our laws are easy to follow. While following our local laws, it’s difficult to get into trouble here. I have a friend who was ticketed for jay-walking in 1990. Even with that on her record, she didn’t consider it a bad year. So many people have good lives, yet they approach each day with a huge amount of negativity. I’m reminded of the old joke that goes something like this. “It hurts when I do this. Then don’t do that.” This past year one of my sons got pneumonia and spent 3 weeks in hospital. My brother had heart surgery. My car broke down 4 times, needing major repairs, but thankfully not majorly costly repairs and it also needed the air-conditioning repaired. Our laundry room roof leaks and it’s been leaking so long that the room is beginning to smell like a body of water. We tried to patch it in several places that we thought were obvious places for a leak to form. We used several methods to patch the roof, yet each succeeding method didn’t work. Now, until we can afford to reroof our house, we place an assortment of plastic containers on our laundry room floor hoping to catch the rain before it floods the room, which it did once already. If you live in Afghanistan, you can’t walk out of your front door without a sniper shooting at you. Terrorists are killing people around the world, but not in or near Julian. Julian people; instead of whining about the horrible year you had in 2016, please be grateful for all of the good that came to you this past year and hope or pray that 2017 is at least as good as 2016 was for you. My gosh folks. If your child didn’t die of cancer or your car got blown up by a terrorist, then settle down and be grateful for the life you have. This past year we dug ditches to repair outside water lines. From necessity we have replaced our refrigerator our clothes washer and our upright freezer. This was the year of replacing appliances. Yet all is good now and I believe we have had a very good year. Since facebook posts aren’t private, I stole the following one from Mary Clare-Walker. Thank you my friend. “How to start the New Year off right: 1-Make a list of all your accomplishments during the past year, 2-make a list of all your goals for the coming year, 3-make a list of everything you are grateful for, down to the teeniest thing. This should take you quite a while, and is a great way to usher in the new year. Remember when you're down to make a gratitude list, and also to ask for help when you need it, from your Spirit helpers, from Source, from family and friends. “ As for me, we invite our grandchildren to our home nearly every Wednesday night for dinner and a movie. I finished the year by making a soup that consisted of previously made chicken and rice soup (Which I had stored in the freezer), a chicken enchilada which I chopped up before putting it into the soup, and a can of Santa Fe style chicken soup. My Grandson told me that dinner was magic and all of the dinners I cook for them are magic. What a wonderfully positive way to end the year. A JOYFUL 2017 to all of you. These are my thoughts.

Realistic Resolutions For Busy Moms (StatePoint) Time is perhaps the most coveted thing moms have and it's crucial to manage it effectively for you and your family. To help moms everywhere make the most of their precious minutes in 2017, actress, director, producer, entrepreneur, mother-of-three and Nutrisystem ambassador, Melissa Joan Hart reveals her New Year's Resolutions, crafted from years of juggling different time consuming tasks. • Just say “no”: Sometimes you just have to decline requests or pick and choose which ones are doable. And remember, it's okay to ask for a rain check. • Limit screen time: It's easy to fall into the screen time black hole. Instead, be present -- put your phone down and limit your children's time in front of their screens. Even talk to your spouse! • Set aside 20 "Mom Minutes” daily: Do something for yourself for 20 minutes every day-- meditate, do a quick workout, call a friend you haven't spoken to in a while, or simply do nothing with a cup of coffee in hand. • Have one-on-one time with each child: Create no-fuss activities like coloring or playing cards that you can do with each child individually based on his or her personality. Spending quality time separately will feed your soul and theirs. • Try to be guilt free: As a working mom, you are doing things for your family even when you are at work, so don’t feel guilty about the time away from loved ones. • Make simple healthy changes: Remember that your kids are always watching, so being a good role model when it comes to health and fitness will pay dividends for them and for you. Simple, easy changes in your daily routing can help you with your health goals. For example, drink a nutrient-rich shake for breakfast, such as Nutrisystem Turboshakes, drink more water throughout the day and maintain a consistent exercise schedule. And if you want to lose weight, as so many do in the New Year, Hart says, "look for a plan that works for you. I chose Nutrisystem because it was simple and fit with my lifestyle. I lost 40 pounds and feel better than ever!" For a kick start to your New Year, consider Nutrisystem Lean13, a new program designed to help you lose up to 13 pounds and seven inches in your first month. More information can be found at nutrisystem.com. • Plan quality couple time: Make time to reignite your romance. Go out to a movie, take a walk together, write each other love notes. “Don’t put too much pressure on yourself to make grand resolutions,” says Hart. “It’s the small resolutions that can make every day just feel better.”

Chef’s Corner Quesadillas Get a Healthy Makeover Quesadilla is a Spanish word for “little cheese thing.” The recipe typically calls for mounds of cheese and pork chorizo between two corn tortillas. Although there’s just a small amount of cheese in this recipe, it’s the lean ground chicken, the spices and the delicious salsa that are the stars of this healthy dish. The substitution of lean ground chicken breast for pork chorizo cuts down on the calories without sacrificing any of the flavor. Chorizo sausage is usually made with ground pork and combined with fat, wine, paprika and salt, and stuffed into a casing made of tripe. Paprika and red chilies are the primary spices in Mexican chorizo and infuse it with a deep reddish color. This recipe uses the same spices that are used in the pungent Mexican sausage to marinate the ground chicken. This allows you to

mimic the flavor of chorizo while cutting out the fat. Small, diced potatoes add a distinctive texture and also absorb the spices. The avocado salsa completes the dish and adds a burst of fresh citrus with the addition of the lime juice. Try one of these healthy quesadillas, accompanied by a dab of fat-free sour cream, if desired, for breakfast, lunch or dinner. You’ll never miss the original recipe! CHICKEN CHORIZO AND POTATO QUESADILLAS 1/2 pound ground all-natural chicken breast 2 tablespoons chili powder 1 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon pepper 1 small bay leaf, ground in a spice grinder 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves 1 tablespoon cider vinegar

1 cup diced and peeled potato 2 teaspoons canola oil 1/2 cup diced, purple onion 1/2 cup shredded reduced-fat Cheddar cheese 8 corn or whole-wheat tortillas The Salsa: 1/2 ripe avocado 1/2 cup chopped tomato 1/2 cup diced purple onion 1 large garlic clove, minced 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro leaves 1/2 Serrano chili, minced 2 teaspoon fresh lime juice 1 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon pepper To prepare the Quesadillas: 1. Combine the chicken, chili powder, salt, pepper, bay leaf, cinnamon, Italian seasoning, cloves and vinegar in a bowl, mix well. Set aside. 2. Boil the potato in lightly salted water in a saucepan until tender, drain. Heat 1 teaspoon canola oil

Q: I have an owl cast-iron bank. When a coin in inserted, the owl turns its head and then deposits it inside the bank. It was purchased in Pennsylvania sometime after the Civil War. Other than that, I know nothing more about it. I have been offered $500 for it. It is in excellent condition -- not mint, but close. -- D Art, Scottsdale, Arizona A: Your bank was patented in 1880, designed by James H. Bowen of Philadelphia and manufactured by J & E Stevens & Company of Cromwell, Connecticut. Your bank is valued in the $200-$2,500 range depending on condition, according to "The Official Guide of Mechanical Banks," by Dan Morphy and published by House of Collectibles books. Although mechanical banks are fascinating, buyers should be aware that reproductions have flooded the market. Some have been "aged" to suggest they are both old and authentic. These fakes often are made in Asia and sometimes can fool even antique dealers. *** Q: My dad was a Marine and served in Vietnam during the war. He recently gave me his collection from the war, including his uniform, dog tags, a Ka-Bar fighting knife, his cargo field pack, a signaling mirror and an assortment of paper items.

Because of this increased interest, prices have soared. For example, a man's

Basic 1943

Part 3

fired live rounds with tracers

Basic training during WWII was a seventeen week affair. It wasn’t until about halfway through that our young soldiers really began to look like a smart outfit like the earlier classes of recruits they observed and admired. It took a lot of work, gruelling twenty mile marches with 60 pound packs and endless time on the rifle range learning to shoot and become proficient as well as field stripping and cleaning your weapon of which you even memorized the serial number. What seemed like endless marches up and down Misery and Heartbreak Hills, which are still at Fort Knox, constant discipline and lessons in the “art of war” was paying off in turning boys into physically hard men. They learned to climb over a fence where you would present the least target to the enemy and they learned to crawl. The army has their own method of crawling and it’s tested on the obstacle course which is a hundred yard tract that is all mud and draped in barbed wire. Additionally there were observers in the guard towers at the periphery of the course who would set off explosive charges at the time the men had to turn on their backs to get under the wire resulting in mud raining down on their faces. The men would crawl through mud, heels flat, lifting wire with no gloves, all the while keeping the barrel of their M-1 out of the mud while water cooled 30 caliber machine guns constantly

end of the tract you had to fire three rounds. If your weapon was fouled, you cleaned it and repeated the course. About four men in fifty were so unnerved they would refuse the course. No one seemed to know what happened to them. There was even fox hole training with the men digging holes in a straight line. There wasn’t instruction on depth until a tank that would straddle the holes started coming. To say that the men were all “assholes and elbows” trying to dig deep in a limited time before the tank ran over them in their holes is an understatement. A full five days was spent on the range learning to shoot the M-1 at 300 and 600 yards by “old army” instructors. Seventy years ago marksmanship counted and the men fired hundreds of rounds a day learning to shoot from four or five positions. Rain or shine, range time was never cancelled. My father remembers one rainy day when they broke for lunch. The cooks were serving under a tent glopping ham, then mashed potatoes, corn and finally pineapple one on top of the other into their mess kits. Then back out in the storm to eat quickly so lunch didn’t get overly waterlogged. Each day on the range their shoulders getting sorer. They learned to shoot for speed and accuracy with the lowest acceptable score being marksman then sharpshooter and the elite few who made expert.

by Bic Montblanc just above the wire level. At the

They also learned to shoot 30 and 50 caliber machine guns, carbines, bazookas, 45 pistols and had hand grenade training. Tankers did not get bayonet training like the infantry. They learned orienteering at night with maps and a compass. Dad doesn’t remember how far they travelled but they were dropped off at about 7 p.m. in the woods and didn’t make it back to base until three or four in the morning. He doesn’t recall ever having to shoot an azimuth with his compass the entire time in combat. By this time they were sharp and disciplined and the swagger in their steps were catching the eyes of the new recruits as theirs were at the classes ahead of them. These men were tankers though and infantry training shifted to mechanized training about half-way through basic. In the case of my father who had never even driven a car yet, he got his training on a two ton truck that you had to double clutch. He started in an open field and the only real instruction he got was the diagram on the dashboard of the gear positions before his instructor said “let’s go.” By the end of the day with all the fits and starts and stalls, he could drive. The farm boys seemed to know all this already and many of them took to the physically demanding job of tank driver. All facets of the training in a tank were graded and the men, though they were cross trained were eventually settled into their jobs with the hierarchy from lowest to highest being bow-gunner or loader once in battle battle becoming Privates or PFC’s earning $50 to $54 per month. A driver (good ones were intuitive and adept at maneuvering through terrain) were Corporal Technicians and gunners became Corporals in combat both earning $64 per month. All positions were Buck Privates until they proved themselves in battle. Tank Commanders which ranged from Buck Sergeant to 1st Lieutenant were only chosen to command in the field, not basic training.

After graduation the men were typically given about seven days leave before reporting to their point of debarkation for Europe. They would spend about two weeks on a troop ship zig zagging across the Atlantic. Once they reached England they were transported by train for another ship across the Channel to France. Sometimes, within two days they would in combat replacing men who were casualties of war. They were often ignored by hardened Veterans until they proved themselves in battle. These men were going into combat in a Sherman Tank. It would carry 70 to 80 shells with another 20 crammed in if they were going into battle. It carried four thousand rounds of 30 and 50 caliber ammunition and a case of grenades. It carried 160 gallons of high octane gasoline. It was lightly armored, small (34 tons compared to 50 tons) and had a high profile compared to the German Tigers and Panzers. The gun was a relatively short barrelled, low velocity 75 millimeter compared to the German’s high velocity 88 that would easily go right through the Sherman. The Sherman’s top speed was 25 mph and had very narrow tracks resulting in poor flotation. Though the Sherman tank was an inferior weapon compared to the German tank, the U.S. made up for it in sheer numbers. America not only had spare tanks for their decimated crews, they also supplied the Allies with enormous numbers of tanks, other vehicles and war materiel. What America lacked in its armored hardware, it made up for in the American Tanker. It was best summed up by Winston Churchill who said “It was men like Patton, who took those amateur citizen soldiers and turned them into an awesome, deadly, fast moving horde of predators.” After living and surviving basic training my father’s comment was that it should have been tougher because it was a walk in the park compared to the horrors of war.

10 The Julian News greasing the wheels of the clean energy transition by re-upping renewable energy financial incentives, rejecting the Keystone XL and DAPL pipeline projects, and establishing offshore drilling bans in the Arctic and Atlantic. But the $64,000 question remains: which of the environmental accomplishments of the last eight years will Donald Trump overturn. After all, Trump has stated his intent to overturn the Clean Power Plan, pull out of or ignore the Paris climate accord, gut the EPA, and open up significant amounts of federal land to oil and gas drilling. Only time will tell if Trump can tarnish Obama’s otherwise shining environmental track record. “A Historic CONTACTS:


Dear EarthTalk: Now that his second term is winding down, what will President Barack Obama’s environmental legacy look like? -- Mary Danson, Littleton, NH The environment may not have been one of candidate Barack Obama’s signature issues in the run-up to the 2008 election; nonetheless, environmentalists were pleased that he won. The non-partisan League of Conservation Voters (LCV) gave Obama an 86 percent rating back then for his Congressional voting track record on bills related to the environment. (His Republican opponent, John McCain, scored a paltry 24 percent according to LCV’s standards.) But even though Obama was talking the talk on emissions reductions, clean energy and other hot button green issues, environmentalists worried that other higher priority concerns could distract the wellmeaning young president from focusing on saving the planet. But cut to the present eight years later, and a much grayer Obama has not only walked the green walk, but will go down in history as one of the greatest environmental presidents of all time. Chief among his sustainability-oriented accomplishments is steering the nation toward a future with fewer greenhouse emissions. One

Credit: Nick Knupffer, FlickrCC. major step was pushing through the Clean Power Plan, calling on electric utilities to reduce their carbon emissions by 32 percent of 2005 levels within 10 years. The plan, which will likely be decided by the U.S. Supreme Court in 2017, is a key part of Obama’s efforts to fight global warming. Obama worked hard to finalize the plan in plenty of time for other countries participating in international climate talks to make similarly strong commitments in time for the December 2015 Paris climate accord, when 194 countries signed on the dotted line volunteering significant cuts to greenhouse gas emissions. Another point of environmental pride for President Obama is his

designation of 29 new national monuments protecting some 553 million acres of naturally and/or culturally significant land and waters. Key adds to the U.S. conservation docket under Obama include the 257 million offshore acres in the Pacific west of Hawaii, 1.8 million acres in the California desert, and most recently another 1.5 million acres across two desert tracts in Nevada and Utah. Environmentalists were critical of Obama at the end of his first term for his lack of attention to conservation: The Obama White House at that point had protected far fewer acres than any of his four predecessors. George W. Bush set aside just under four million acres, Bill Clinton protected some 27 million, George H.W. Bush conserved almost 18 million, and Ronald Reagan protected 12.5 million. But Obama came on strong during his second term and now can boast protecting at least three times as much federal land and water from development as any previous president. The Obama administration also made great strides on

Howdy! From Lake Cuyamaca “Dusty Britches”: here along with “Tapeworm” and “Slick Zipper”. Some nice fish starting to come out of the Lake lately. The pickin is slim, not a lot of limits coming out, but the ones that do come out are pretty good size. A nice 6 pound rainbow was snagged over at Pumphouse Cove, and some beautys were caught at Chambers Park averaging from 2 to 4 pounds next to the wood dock. Kitchen Cove has produced some smaller 1-1/2 to 3 pounders and is out of the wind. Only trout coming out lately, nothing else. We have had some snow falling lately which has put a dent in my articles getting out… it happens. We were basically slammed… like Davey Crockett at the Alamo. The clean-up continues as we try to get a handle as to why anyone would trash as pretty an area as the Cuyamacas. You don’t really get hit with it until after the snow

melts, and some of the things that you find out there aren’t pretty… I would elaborate, but it would never go to print. The double crested cormorants are populating the Lake. They eat 1 to 2 pounds of trout each per day….last count, Jay Blaylock estimated 75 sitting along the log boom at the south end of the Lake. Speaking of Jay Blaylock, he has done a great job running the “Lake Cuyamaca Waterfowl Hunt” this year. We also have a junior waterfowl hunt and competitive shootout at the end of the season… and Jay has hooked up with the “Wounded Warrior Foundation” to give those folks a day in the wind to try and drop a duck. Mike Arter and Bill Fink co-ordinated to give the VETS some good food and drink at the “Lincoln-Deming American Legion Post #468” after their day out in a blind. Those guys at the post are always willing and able to help a fellow vetran out. Jay’s going to need some R and R himself when this is over. Have you ever been out hiking around and come upon a pile of coyote poop. It’s different than any other poop out there in the forest. It’s obvious that they don’t care what they eat. There’s more hair and fur in their poop than poop in their poop… you could knit an afghan sweater with just a couple piles of coyote poop. Which brings me to a saying that Samuel Clemens…. “Mark Twain”… used a lot while I have been thinking of the last few weekends… “The more I find out about people… the more I like my dog”… Or something like that. “Tight Lines and Bent Rods”… Dusty Britches

This type of flour was named after a 19-century Presbyterian minister named Sylvester Graham, who promoted the snack as a digestive aid and a cure for alcoholism. • You might be surprised to learn that, although Charles Goodyear received a patent for vulcanized rubber in 1844, the Maya were creating objects with rubber 3,000 years before that. • The quaking aspen (Populus tremuloides) is the most widely distributed tree in North America (as well as the state tree of Utah). Groves of them can be found in high altitudes as far south as Guanajuato, Mexico, and as far north as the Brooks Range of mountains in northern Alaska. Most people don't realize, however, that the groves are not made up of separate trees; all the visible trunks are part of a single organism, genetically identical and sharing the same root system. *** Thought for the Day: "The greatest happiness of life is the conviction that we are loved -- loved for ourselves, or rather, loved in spite of ourselves." -- Victor Hugo © 2016 King Features Syndicate, Inc.

Staples To Stock Your Pantry (Family Features) It's the time of year when the weather can be unpredictable, making a trip to the grocery store undesirable at best, or even outright dangerous. Keeping your pantry stocked with some basic necessities can help ensure you're ready to hunker down and keep things cozy and warm in the kitchen. Baking necessities: There's nothing like baking to chase away a blustery day, so keep an ample supply of traditional baking needs on hand. Include all-purpose flour and sugar (white, brown and confectioners) along with baking powder, baking soda and common flavorings like vanilla and almond extract. If you enjoy making pastries from scratch, add a tub of shortening and don't forget the nonstick spray. Meal makers: A supply of rice, pasta and beans can make it easy to round out a meal no matter what type of protein and other groceries you have available. These can each be used to create an array of hearty soups, stews and noodle-based dishes to warm you from the inside out. Simple sides: Keeping a wellstocked pantry means you can serve up great-tasting, Sunday

dinner-worthy side dishes with every meal. Canned veggies and fruit are a start, but you can take it up a notch by adding savory side dishes such as Idahoan Signature Russets mashed potatoes, which taste as if you peeled, boiled and mashed them yourself. Sold in a convenient re-sealable pouch for freshness, they have a smooth taste like original homemade mashed potatoes with just a hint of butter and cream. They can be made in just 5 minutes using milk and butter, or, if you have to skip that run to the store, just water. Sauces and condiments: Even the bare basics can take on an appetizing new flair when you add flavor with sauces and condiments. Jarred sauces like marinara and alfredo make it easy to bypass fresh produce and cream when you're in a pinch, while mayonnaise paired

and oregano are common picks. Add some heat with crushed red or cayenne pepper, and don't forget another versatile favorite: cinnamon. Find more staples to help stock your pantry at Idahoan.com (http://idahoan.com/).

SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Partnerships -personal or professional -- which began before the new year take on new importance. They also reveal some previously hidden risks. So be warned.

CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Favorable changes continue to dominate, and you should be responding positively as they emerge. Someone wants to become more involved in what you're doing. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) A friend wants to share a secret that could answer some questions you've wondered about for a long time. Meanwhile, travel aspects continue to be strong. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Stay on your new course despite so-called well-meaning efforts to discourage you. Rely on your deep sense of selfawareness to guide you to do what's right for you. BORN THIS WEEK: You have the capacity to meet challenges that others might find overwhelming, and turn them into successful ventures.
