The Great Turn Off Of 2017

by Michel Hart

by Kristy Holt

On Sunday, December 17 at 7:00pm in the Julian Town Hall Georg Friedrich Handel’s oratorio, “The Messiah,” will be performed. This has been an annual event in Julian since 1986. The Julian Chorus, four professional soloist (including our own DeLynn Ketcherside), a pianist, a string quartet, all of whom have performed with us for many years, will fill the town hall with joyful music. As we all rise to sing the much beloved “Hallelujah Chorus,” the two brass players from Ramona will hit the high notes on trumpet and trombone, and Christmas will have begun. Make you plans to join friends and neighbors in the Town Hall this Sunday, come early for the best seating. There is no admission charged, just a passing of the basket. After the performance join in the gathering downstairs for teats and conversation. Hallelujah indeed!

Flu Activity Intensifying in San Diego

By José A. Álvarez, County of San Diego Communications Office

Flu activity in the San Diego region continues to intensify, the County Health and Human Services Agency announced today. A total of 182 cases were reported last week, 78 more than the previous week. To date, 859 lab-confirmed cases have been reported in the region this season, compared to 242 at the same time last year. “Flu activity in San Diego and across the country continues to be elevated for this time of year,” said Wilma Wooten, M.D., M.P.H., County public health officer. “Get vaccinated now to protect yourself and your family, especially with the holidays coming up.” For the week ending Dec. 2, 2017, the Health and Human Services Agency Influenza Watch report shows the following: Emergency department visits for influenza-like illness: 2 percent of all visits (compared to 3 the previous week) Lab-confirmed influenza cases for the week: 182 (compared to 107 the previous week) Total influenza deaths to date: 4 (compared to 3 at this time last season) It’s Not Too Late for a Flu Shot The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that everyone 6 months and older get a flu shot every year. The vaccine is safe and effective. It takes two weeks for immunity to develop. Vaccination is especially important for people who are at high risk of developing serious complications from influenza. They include: People with chronic medical conditions like asthma, diabetes and lung disease, even if symptoms are under control Pregnant women People 65 years and older People who live with or care for others who are at higher risk In addition to getting vaccinated, people should also do the following to avoid getting sick: continued on page 8

The warnings started on Monday - High Winds and Red Flag Warnings, low humidity and the possibility of SDG&E shutting off power to selected areas to reduce fire danger. Wednesday the phones started to ring with a warning: “This is

TV News crew on Main Street.

SDG&E calling with an important message. The extremely strong wends expected in your area within the next hour may cause outages or require SDG&E to turn off the power for public safety. If there is an outage, the power will remain off for as long as it takes our crews to assess any damage to the electrical system and determine when power can be turned on safely. It won’t be turned back on until it’s safe. Please be prepared to activate your personal emergency plan. For more information, visit or call SDG&E at 1-800-411-7343.”

Thursday morning - it started! first with the outlying areas; Pine Hills, Wynola, Harrison Park, then town went dark, one problem, town was to be energized (at least that portion that was part of the under grounding) - for the first time since the system had been installed, it didn’t work. Crews worked for two hours on the system before it was up and running. In the interim more of the area went dark. Checking the SDG&E outage map the projected time of reenergizing shifted from late Saturday to late Monday, if weather conditions improved. Friday night and a surprise, power returned to most areas, at least until 11:30 Saturday, just enough time for the ice maker to fill the tray. Winds had kicked up and would continue through Sunday keeping the power off in Pine Hills, Wynola, and extended to Warner Springs and Ranchita and other areas Kentwood and Whispering Pines seemed to be spared. The library got to stay open with power and the schools got their’s back. Some credit Supervisor Jacob for taking advantage of a news conference about the Lilac fire to shame SDG&E and some believe it was the switchboard at SDG&E being overloaded with calls. What ever it was, we hope that everyone survived the inconvenience. Oh by the way - did you feel the earthquakes and aftershocks? Or was your generator making too much of a racket?

The Current SDGE Power Shut-Off in Eastern San Diego County DATE: December 9, 2017 SDG&E demonstrates their utter contempt and complete disregard for their customers’ health, safety, and livelihoods, all under the DOLEV pretense of protecting us from wildfires . . . fires that would be started as a result of SDG&E’s faulty power line installations. Rather than repair and replace their inferior equipment that is prone to failure, SDG&E simply shuts off power to thousands in San Diego County’s backcountry whenever the wind blows, rendering our homes uninhabitable and crippling our businesses -- just to protect their corporate behinds. I wonder how long this policy would remain in effect if SDG&E’s executives were to lose their power, heat, water, and communication capabilities every time they take those essentials away from us. Graham Wilder Julian resident

If time is tight or you’re not in a Martha Stewart mood, but you want to thank your child’s teacher with a gift he’s sure to love, these five ideas will save the day. The addition of a homemade card from your child will turn these no-fuss ideas into a gift that is truly cherished. 1. Fresh flowers or a live plant. You can’t go wrong with this timeless gesture of appreciation. One parent suggests, “If people prefer to give something that will last a little longer, I recommend a small potted floral plant (which you can usually get on sale for under $5 at local grocery stores). I attach a note saying something along the lines of, ‘Thank you for all you’ve done to help our child, [name], and all the children GROW in wisdom over this past year. We hope you have a wonderful summer, The XYZ Family.'” 2. The always popular gift card. As one mom wrote, “Gift cards have ‘practical’ written all over them. You can get a Starbucks card or Bath & Body Works card in amounts as low as $5 and then the teachers can use them at their convenience and for what they like.” Teachers told us that gift cards they can use to treat themselves to something special or buy supplies for the class are always appreciated. You can even pick up a wide assortment of gift cards at many grocery stores, making this gift even easier! 3. A gift basket with a theme. This requires a bit more effort than a gift card, but it can still be pulled together quickly with a trip to the video or office supply store. Here are a few themes our readers suggested: A teacher survival pack with packages of note cards, colored pens, stickers and Post-it notes. A goodie basket with small packages of coffee, tea, crackers and cookies. Handy gadgets: One mom wrote: “Last year, I did Pampered Chef and gave [the teachers] the mini serving spatula, twix-it clips, i-slice, and mini-whisk. I think it cost $10 or $12, and they loved it.” A night at the movies – fill a popcorn tub or basket with unpopped popcorn, other snacks and gift cards for video or DVD rentals. One creative parent, who lives on a farm, embellished the movienight basket by using homegrown popcorn and including a poem about relaxing and enjoying the teacher’s own family after taking such good care of other children all year. But even the simple version will be appreciated! 4. A donation to the teacher’s favorite cause. Peggy Mannion, an eighth-grade social studies teacher in San Francisco, remembers one especially meaningful gift. “A student made a donation to the American Cancer Society in my name. I liked that because, you know, I don’t need anything! I mean if somebody said, ‘I gave $10 to a homeless person instead of buying you a gift,’ I’d be thrilled!” 5. A donation to your child’s class. Teachers often spend a lot of their own money on their classrooms and have wish lists of things they’d love to have for the class. Ask your child’s teacher whether he’d like supplies for a special project, money for a field trip, books for the class library or a gift certificate for him to choose something. continued on page 8

From The Supervisor’s Desk

Notes from Supervisor Dianne Jacob Pathway to help: My colleagues on the Board of Supervisors recently joined me in taking a big step to help dementia-stricken seniors in crisis. We voted to create a pilot program to steer seniors with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia to the appropriate services and programs during an emergency. Newly formed crisis response teams will lead the initiative, which is due to start next year in Santee and Lakeside. If it goes well, I’m hoping we can expand the program throughout the region. Special thanks to the Sheriff ’s Dept., Alzheimer's San Diego, Sharp Grossmont Hospital and the Grossmont Healthcare District for teaming up with me on this. Seniors with dementia need to a clear path to help. SDG&E rejected: State regulators did the right thing by recently rejecting SDG&E’s bid to bill its ratepayers for $379 million in costs tied to our region’s 2007 firestorms. The utility’s request was outrageous and an insult to all those affected by the disaster. Folks died in these fires and many lost their homes. The rejection by the state Public Utilities Commission does not change any of that, but brings some justice against a company that has long cared more about shareholder profits than public safety. New engine house: A new fire station is coming to the wildfireprone backcountry. Construction is starting on a 13,900-square-foot county facility in the heart of Pine Valley. It will be nearly twice of the size of the community’s existing engine house and is expected to be completed in late 2018. For more District 2 news, go to or follow me on Facebook and Twitter. If I can assist with a county issue, please call my office at 619-531-5522 or email dianne.jacob@sdcounty. Have a great East County day! *** I am thankful for the mess to clean after a party because it means I have been surrounded by friends. — Nancie Carmody ***

The Julian High School robotics team, E T Brigade, attended the San Diego STEAM Maker Festival at the Del Mar Fairground on Saturday, December 2nd. This is the largest festival of creative STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) education and maker crafts in San Diego County. This festival marks the beginning of the competition season for FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC), an annual youth robotics competition sponsored by Qualcomm and run by FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology). At the festival, our team had the opportunity to participate in a series of scrimmages against other robotics teams from all over the county, meet other teams in one of four leagues, as well as help each other overcome challenges in designing, building, and programming the robot. These scrimmages provide an opportunity for each team to get a real taste of what the competition will look like and see how well their robot performs. For this year’s competition, each team’s robot will need to operate autonomously for the first 30 seconds, at which point two drivers take direct control of the robot for the remainder of the match. The primary task this year involves organizing a pile of 6” cubes of two different colors and stacking them in three columns of four blocks each on one side of the arena in order to form a predetermined pattern. During the last 30 seconds of the competition, the robots need to retrieve a relic from one corner of the arena and place it on a mat up to three feet outside the edge of the arena. E T Brigade will begin this year's competition with four league meets alongside 63 other teams from all over San Diego beginning in December and going through February. This is only the first leg of the FTC, which will allow teams to advance from league competition to higher tiers throughout the region. The ultimate goal for every FTC team is to make it all the way to the world championship game in Houston, Texas, in late April 2018. Last year, a San Diego team won the FTC Championship, and we are hopeful that this year’s champion will also be from San Diego County. We are fortunate to be supported by the Julian High School Assets program as well as the main sponsor of FTC, Qualcomm, which has chosen our team to receive an additional grant as a rookie team. ET Brigade currently has eight students and is mentored by Jeremy Croman, a Math teacher at Julian High School, and Lay Lay, a parent volunteer. In addition to FTC, For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology (FIRST) organizes two other levels of competitions: FIRST Lego League (FLL) and FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC). FIRST was founded in 1989 to inspire young people's interest and participation in science and technology. Based in Manchester, New Hampshire, this non-profit charity works to design accessible and innovative programs to motivate young people to pursue education and career opportunities in science, technology, engineering, and math, while building self-confidence, knowledge, and life skills. FIRST is the oldest and largest youth robotics program in the world.

“Club Wild” is the new Club at the Julian Elementary After School Program run by Volcan Mountain Conservation Education Coordinator, Janice Smith and Garden Educator, Kathleen Beck. The program began while these two environmental educators were discussing the importance of getting the students onto the Volcan Mountain trails. Along with this awareness of nearby nature, imparting knowledge of local people and local habitats where the students reside, fills important niches in a students overall understanding of science and community. In Environmental Education we refer to this as Interrelationships, which forms the foundation of all community life whether you are child or squirrel. Last year the students learned about the Local Oak Woodland Habitat; planted previously gathered acorns; played a variety of predator and prey games; learned tracking skills; learned about the local watershed and visited our Ironside Springs; hiked the Volcan Preserve Trail and the Santa Isabel East Trail. All of these activities gave the students a broader understanding of the place in which they live, and helps the students to know: That which is loved tends to be protected. In this way we are planting a caring for the earth and all its inhabitants. If you would like to know more about this program please contact Kathleen Beck at: or Janice Smith at:

Several weeks ago the Julian Junior High Timberwolves attended the all school volleyball tournament at Pauma Valley Junior High School. Julian had both a boys and girls team made up of sixth, seventh, and eighth graders. Both the girls and boys teams competed very well, showing both competitive spirit and sportsmanship. The Julian Boys Team fought hard to make it into the finals and after many hard and long games – they walked away as the winners of the tournament! Go Julian!

British soldiers captured Lee at the tavern two days later. • On Dec. 17, 1843, Charles Dickens' classic story "A Christmas Carol" is published. Dickens' father was thrown into debtors' prison in 1824, and 12-year-old Charles was sent to work in a factory. Dickens wrote about the miserable treatment of children and the institution of the debtors' jail in several novels. • On Dec. 12, 1901, Italian physicist and radio pioneer Guglielmo Marconi succeeds in sending the first radio

A Couple Of Tips


by Kiki Skagen Munshi

Not My First Power Outage In Nigeria the power (NEPA— the Nigerian Electric Power Authority more familiarly known as No Electric Power Anytime) would go out often and someone (usually this writer) would have to go down and turn on the apartment building’s clunky generator. In Sierra Leone there wasn’t enough power to justify hooking into the grid so we were on generators 24/7 for the two and a half years of our residence. It was a huge generator requiring a vast reservoir of diesel, a precious and eminently stealable commodity. The then Marine Guard Gunny still reminds me of the time he thought he might capture the thieves and I told him, from up the outside staircase that I had his back with my Walther. The Marines loved me after that one. And diplomatic life isn’t all cocktail parties and elegant embassies though cocktail parties as a source of schmooze should never be underestimated. Back to generators, with which there is some familiarity in this house and which are Good Things, though one never thought taking a flashlight and wending one’s way down to the basement at 0-darkthirty…but, how quickly things become routine. This lovely little machine doesn’t purr 24/7—it probably would but the fuel tank doesn’t hold thousands of gallons and it isn’t clear when, if ever, we’ll have power again. One presumes there will be power at some point but the messages from SDG&E are conflicting and mostly depressing. It’s for our safety, of course. We love them for that. Today the Santa Ana wind index says the wind will be ‘moderate’ (e.g. no problem, boss) but it’s probably too much trouble to turn the power back on for a day just because…well, just because people have gotten used to the convenience of electricity. We didn’t used to have electricity on this place. Back then we had a mother who would clean and light kerosene lanterns and a wood stove. But now there is a cute little generator and a not-very-large tank of propane. Which no one better try to steal.

Our water comes from a well on our property. When our power goes out, we have no electricity to our well, so the well pump can’t work. When the electricity comes back on, the pump seems to churn the water in the bottom of the well, and we get lots of grit coming up through our pipes. The grit looks like black sand, only it’s sometimes a bit greasy. The grit gets caught in the filters of our toilets, the fine meshed screens on our faucets and in our washing machine filter. The washing machine filter is important because when the filter gets full of grit, the water doesn’t flow and it seems to take forever to fill the washing machine with water. Since I’m on the subject of power outages, I am reminded of tips I give from time to time. Sometimes I need to be reminded too. I fill plastic water bottles with water, leaving about an inch of head space, and freeze them with the lids loosely fitted. I store them in our freezer so we always have ice. During a power outage, the bottles of frozen water keep our refrigerated and frozen food cold for a longer period of time. When I need to use the bottles of ice while traveling, I know that I am also carrying a supply of water as the ice slowly melts. On a hot day, the cold water is a good thing to carry with me when I work in my yard. Having a yard that is three acres in size can mean that when I need a drink of water; I don’t want to take the time to walk all the way back to my house. I have so little time for getting any yard work done, that the time is very precious to me. Keeping candles and oil lamps in the house for romance or for lighting our home during power outages is a very good idea. Keep the glass chimneys of the oil lamps clean and free of dust; keep the candles on plates or in containers that keep them from dripping where wax isn’t welcome. If possible, keep matches or lighters near every candle and oil lamp. When children are in the house, it’s never a good idea to keep matches and lighters where they can get to them, so find a high place in the house for matches, lighters and other items that can be harmful to children. Even though we received our first really good shower of rain; don’t think that we are out of fire danger. Now that leaves are falling; it’s important to get out to our yards and rake all leaves, weeds and other burnable debris away from our houses and other buildings. Raking leaves and dry weeds into piles away from any trees, buildings or shrubs can help keep homes fire safe. The piles surrounded by naked dirt don’t cause major danger because fire has no place to spread. This works well for pine trees, cedar trees and any other trees that burn when fire ladders up through their bark. Rake everything except bare dirt away from the trunks of trees for at least a foot from the tree. A bare foot of ground surrounding a tree can keep fire from getting to the tree. I can swear to this because it’s exactly what happened in our yard during the cedar fire. Fire rushed through our oak grove, and then skipped around the cedar trees because they were surrounded with bare dirt. Oak trees don’t usually burn, so they were just fine after the fire rushed through the grasses under them. We keep a land line in our house. A land line is a telephone that is hard wired into the house. Portable phones and cell phones don’t usually work during power outages. Keep at least a half tank of gas in your vehicle at all times. Keep flashlights and fresh batteries in your house and vehicle. Keep a battery powered radio or a wind up radio at home. Always have some foods at home that can be eaten without being cooked. Peanut butter and jam works well for me, with or without bread. Keeping snacks, bottled water and blankets in our vehicles is a very good idea. Sometimes we get stuck behind traffic accidents that take hours to clear, and sometimes we get stuck away from home when snow keeps the roads closed until they are plowed. Always keep gallons of water at home. Even if it’s unsealed and it’s been sitting around the garage or barn for a long time; it’s still good for flushing toilets. Three to eight drops of bleach per gallon makes the water in unsealed water bottles safe to drink. Keep lots of extra blankets in your house. A house that normally has electric heat gets cold amazingly fast during a winter power outage. Keeping warm can be your top priority, and we all need to keep ourselves healthy, mentally and physically at all times. These are just a few tips that can certainly be expanded on. If any of my readers can send me emails with their own tips for emergencies, please write to me at or send me a note at The Julian News P. O. Box 639 Julian, CA 92036 These are my thoughts

Fun Holiday Gift Ideas For Kids Exploring Math, Science, Art And More

Holiday Giving For The Whole Family (Family Features) Part of the magic of the holiday season is making wishes come true, not only for your loved ones but for others in the community, too. Show children how rewarding it is to embrace the true spirit of generosity and compassion this holiday season with these activities that make giving back fun. Set the stage With the aid of modern technology, you can introduce kids to the goodness of giving with a century-old story about the impact of love and kindness. Nearly 120 years ago, 8-year-old Virginia O'Hanlon wrote a letter to the "New York Sun" newspaper asking if there really was a Santa Claus. "Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus," wrote the paper's editor, Francis P. Church. "He exists as certainly as love and generosity and devotion exist." Now fans of this heart-warming story can learn more by tuning in to watch the "Yes, Virginia" animated film online at The award-winning, half-hour holiday special features Taylor Hay, a former Make-A-Wish child who had her own wish granted when her voice was captured for one of the film's characters, alongside an allstar cast including Neil Patrick Harris, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Alfred Molina and Beatrice Miller. Get hands-on No matter what type of giving activity your family chooses, there's undoubtedly a way for kids to get involved. Whether it's helping select toys for an adopted family or making cards to include in care packages for children who will spend this holiday in the hospital, find ways to continued on page 10

With fun gifts that help kids explore the world around them, you can make the most of the holiday season. (StatePoint) When shopping for children this holiday season, remember that the best gifts will pull double-duty and be not only fun, but educational too. “Children should be encouraged to endlessly explore their creativity and be provided outlets to continuously discover through creative play,” says Hiu Lee, senior VP of Horizon Group USA, a leader in the creative DIY marketplace. Science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics (STEAM) concepts are especially important for young minds. While these are among the most challenging school subjects, at home, these topics can be brought to life through play. Consider these gift ideas that allow children to put real-world science theories to the test while learning fun facts along the way. continued on page 12

California Is A Winter Activity Wonderland Even as the days grow shorter and temperatures get cooler, California is still just heating up. From the mountains to the deserts to the ocean, the Golden State offers an incredible array of winter activities to satisfy families, thrill-seeking Olympic hopefuls, and everyone in-between. We say that in California you can Catch The Winter Wave, and promise it’ll be the joyride of your life, no matter what activity you choose. With California’s near fanatical devotion to recreational activities and with easy access to parks, resorts and sports facilities, it’s no wonder the state has a long history of producing winter sports stars. Icons such as Kristi Yamaguchi, Shaun White and Jonny Moseley have all brought Olympic gold home to the state. And although California has hosted two Summer Olympic Games (with a third to come … hello, L.A. 2028!), it’s often forgotten as the site of a Winter Olympics. In 1960, the world’s top winter athletes gathered at Squaw Valley for an Olympic competition highlighted by opening and closing ceremonies produced by Walt Disney and a stunning gold-medal victory by the U.S. hockey team over the Soviet Union. Squaw Valley remains a winner, having been named a USA Today Readers’ Choice winner for Best Ski Resort in North America. With an average annual snowfall of 450 inches and 300 sunny days a year — plus familyfriendly attractions like tubing and mini-snowmobiles designed just kids — it’s no wonder Squaw Valley retains its position on the podium. Winter is also a magical time at Yosemite National Park, and many park insiders consider it to be their favorite season to visit. Gone are the crowds of summer and the breathtaking natural monuments, cloaked in snow, take on additional majesty. It’s also home to California’s oldest ski park, Yosemite Ski & Snowboard Area (formerly Badger Pass Ski Area). It’s perfect for families as well as for cross-country skiers and snowshoers who can make their way to spectacular Glacier Point and overnight at the rustic Glacier Point Ski Hut. You can also practice your double axels while taking in the postcard-perfect vistas from the valley floor at the Half Dome Village (formerly Curry Village) ice rink. And that’s just the tip of the winter recreation iceberg. While most of the country may bemoan endless winter, in California it may not last long enough (despite a ski and boarding season that can last until summer) to get in all the activities, such as: Cross-country skiing and snowshoeing: California is home to North America’s biggest cross-country resort — Royal Gorge in Soda Springs. XC skiers and snowshoers have access to some 6,000 acres and eight trail systems. If you want to harness the wind and try some snowkiting, this is your spot. Other places to cross off your list include Tamarack Cross-Country Ski Center in Mammoth Lakes and Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks, where you can glide among the massive trees. Skiing and Snowboarding: You can get your rush on at ski areas and resorts stretching the length of California, from Lake Tahoe to Lake Arrowhead. Look to world-class High Sierra gems like Mammoth Mountain, which soars to a height of more than 11,000 feet; family friendly Northstar California Resort, which offers a luxury snowsport experience; and aptly named Heavenly Resort, spread over 4,800 skiable acres and offering plenty of backcountry terrain. And when you want to take a break from the slopes, you can try snowmobiling, join a snowcat tour, or explore some trails on a fat-tire bike. Even Southern California gets in on the act with amazing ski areas like Bear Mountain and Snow Summit, which are accessible on day trips from Los Angeles and San Diego. Surfing: Hey, it’s California — we surf 365 days a year here. Plus winter storms provide some of the best swells of the year. And if you’re timing is right, you might catch the legendary Mavericks surf competition at Half Moon Bay, which gathers the world’s best bigwave riders on 48-hour’s notice, whenever winter conditions are perfect. Hiking: Sure you can take a backcountry tromp through the snow, but how about a hike through a palm oasis in Anza-Borrego Desert State Park or clambering on some boulders at Joshua Tree National Park? Daytime desert temperatures are perfect in the winter there, along with locations like Mojave National Preserve and Death Valley National Park. And the cold, clear nights make for unforgettable stargazing. Curling: The stone is in the house! Yes, everyone’s favorite lowimpact Winter Olympic sport, a cross between shuffleboard and housekeeping, is played in California. In fact the San Francisco Bay Area Curling Club, established in 1958, is one of the oldest curling clubs in the country and they schedule a full slate of lessons and competitions. Bird and Butterfly Watching: Looking for a kinder, gentler adrenaline rush? Thrill to the sight of thousands of monarch butterflies wintering continued on page 10

Chef’s Corner Give Cookies For Christmas

Freshly baked cookies are a wonderful holiday gift. Hosting family and friends for a cookie exchange party is a great way to start a new holiday tradition and get a variety of baked goods and some new recipes without spending much money. A cookie exchange party also is an inexpensive way to entertain because the cookies provided by your guests are the centerpiece of the party, and everyone leaves with a variety of cookies as a parting gift. You also can host a cookie bake and exchange party. Since everyone is so busy, buying good quality cookie mixes and having the guests stir them up, bake and decorate them can become a party activity. The first cookie exchange party started more than 70 years ago. It was usually a social event for women and was extremely popular with women’s clubs and church groups. Each person baked one or two dozen of their favorite cookies and exchanged one with each

person in attendance. The party also offered a wonderful way to collect the personal stories behind the cookies. Sharing stories also acts as an ice-breaker and a way for guests to get to know each other. Here are a few tips for hosting a cookie party exchange, plus a great recipe for my mother’s Peanut Butter Cookies. * Invite eight to 12 people for the best variety of cookies and conversation. Traditionally, everyone attending brings a dozen of one kind of cookie, squares or candies for each of the other people in attendance, plus one dozen for themselves and an extra dozen for

the “sample plate.” Since this would require a huge amount of baking, I suggest that each person bring three dozen cookies: two dozen to exchange and a dozen for sample plate. Although each guest might not get one of each cookie to take home, this makes the event more of a real party, as your guests won’t feel pressured to turn their kitchens into a bakery. Suggest that they wrap each dozen they are bringing separately. * Send invitations by email or regular mail a few weeks ahead of the party. Specify a start and end time for your party. Send email

The Gift of Giving

Chatter and I are teaming up to make all of our holiday gifts this year. I’m using my computer to help. I will write stories and recipes, draw pictures and then print out my work. Next, Chatter will decorate the pages and bind them into books or make other fun items. We can’t wait to start!

Not everyone likes to make gifts. Sometimes we just run out of time or our budgets are small. Here are gifts that you can “put together.” Think about items that go well together – for example, a movie rental coupon and popcorn – then buy or gather them together. Next, find a box, bag, basket, tin or other container to hold your gift. Add a bow or card.

they have to have their finger to the wind when it comes to the constituency they represent. They are noting what you are saying. The mistake many of us make, is when the opposite party of your choice is in office, you cut off communication. Whether you like what they are doing or not, let them know. It is so simple, so fast that if we lose our representatives to “Special Interests” we have no one to blame but ourselves. Listen, California is second to none in the number of representatives we send to the 435 member Congress. We have 53 members. Let me put that in perspective. Texas has 36, New York has 27, Florida 27 and get this, well over half the U.S. land mass made up of Alaska, Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Nevada, Montana, Wyoming, Utah, Arizona, North and South

One deas I n e z Do

Dakota, Nebraska, Colorado, New Mexico, Kansas, Oklahoma and Hawaii have, guess how many. Sixty-three, all combined only ten more than California. We are a powerhouse. In addition to the big numbers, we have significant representatives in leadership positions in the Congressional body. Kevin McCarthy is the House Majority Leader and Nancy Pelosi is the House Minority Leader. Additionally many California members chair or serve important roles on many important committees or seem to be in the national news a lot. There’s Darrell Issa (R), Devin Nunes (R), Maxine Waters (D), Adam Schiff (D), and Brad Sherman (D), to name a few. They will represent your interest but only if you hold their feet to the fire. Communicate, let them know, be vocal, that is the American way.

Gifts show joy and caring. It takes time to think about gifts and to make, buy and wrap them. A present tells people that they are important to you.

Don’t lose it. In November of 2018 the “midterm” elections are coming. While some would dismiss this as a minor process it is not. Senator Feinstein our senior Senator will be up for re-election as will all 53 Congressional Representatives. The midterms are often a mandate on the administration and have a crucial bearing on legislation that Congress will or won’t accomplish in their next term. In America, the people still wield the power. It is up to you to not only vote, but to communicate with your representatives. If you don’t, the system does not work well, special interests have too much power, your representatives don’t have “you” to answer to and you’ll have no one to blame but yourselves.

A representative government is the basis of rule in the United States. On the federal level your Congressman/woman is the closest touch you have to the megalith of the ruling bureaucracy in Washington. During the Constitutional Convention in the 1700s, George Washington opined that a congressional district should consist of no more than 30,000 people. I believe the final figure was 40,000. Considering the agrarian nature of much of the country a fast horse was probably the quickest form of moving information in those days, districts of small populations were key to a distrustful populace. Congressmen (there were no women in Congress then) wielded a lot of power. There were only 65 in the first Congress. Representatives in those days were often the farmer, merchant or estate holder doing their patriotic duty by representing his district. They served a twoyear term in Washington, and then returned to his homestead to make a living. Of course even in those days, there were the wealthy political pros whose career “was” politics. One thing for sure, was that Congress turned over every two years to a larger degree than it does today. The Pols that returned time and time again probably had their constituency convinced they were doing a good job for them. Let’s flash ahead a couple of hundred years. Congress is still your closest contact to the Federal Government. Communication has changed and while your district has changed in population, your responsibility to communicate your opinion to your representative has not. Congressional districts are now made up of approximately 700,000 people. Due to redistricting in California, Julian was in the 49th district represented by Darrel Issa. It is now in the 50th Congressional district since 2013. Duncan Hunter (R), is the current representative of this district. Contacting him is easy by simply Googling his name and hitting the “contact” button, or calling his office at 619 4485201. Now that you have the contact information for our representative this is what I want you to do. Stop carping and moaning about what’s going on in Washington. Pick up your phone or send an email and become part of the process and solution. If you like what they’re doing let them know. If you don’t like what they’re doing, let them know. If you’re a Democrat, the Republican Duncan Hunter is still your representative and he has no idea what you’re thinking other than you want to vote him out. Conversely, if you’re a Republican you still need to let him know where he is right or wrong in your opinion. Your opinion is the only one that matters. If you want a truly representative government then the responsibility to communicate is yours. When you send Representatives or Senators an email on an issue this is what’s going to happen. You are going to get a very innocuous return saying something to the effect of, “Thank you for taking the time to share your views with me. I always appreciate hearing from my constituents.” Yada, yada, yada…. At first blush this may seem like a blow off, but it is not. Believe me, they are listening to you, particularly on the hot button issues. They want nothing more than to be re-elected and

Bringer Of Babies

This strange figure pictures the Kindlbringer carrying six babies to their new parents according to German legend. The 5-inch-high figure sold for $513. Where do babies come from? Explaining this to a child has required many imaginative explanations. During the 19th century in the U.S. and Europe, the most popular answer was "the stork brought him" or "he was found in the cabbage patch." There are stories dating

well before the 1600s that say a baby was found under a large cabbage leaf or was delivered by a flying stork. For centuries, each country had a story. The baby was brought from midwives, wild women of the forest, owls, foxes, a male water sprite, a raven or a crow. The baby could be found under a gooseberry bush, or a lime tree in countries that didn't grow cabbages. No one really knew where babies came from until the 1680s, when the microscope and other discoveries helped scientists figure it out. It was not until the 1830s that most people were convinced a man and woman, not a stork, made a baby. In Germany, there was the legend of Der Kindlbringer, the bringer of babies. He carried a bundle of babies in a bunting, in a basket or on his back. He was dressed like a harlequin. Several different German porcelain figurines that were made in about 1850 were sold at a Theriault auction on July 26, 2016 in Washington, D.C. The five-inch porcelain figure of a man carrying six babies sold for $513. *** Q: I would like to get vintage champagne glasses to friends as an anniversary gift. I have been told that new glasses are flutes, but old ones are coupe-shape with round bowls. A: Wine connoisseurs will tell you to serve champagne in a flute. That shape became popular about 1950, and blownglass hollow-stem champagne glasses were banned from many restaurants. The stems were too

hard to clean. The flute replaced it for sparkling drinks. However, there recently has been a new way to serve champagne. Use a regular wine glass, probably a Bordeaux glass that has straight sides and tapers a bit to the rim. Some experts say these glasses let the aroma last longer. The bubbles look best in a flute, but any of these glasses can be correct for less-formal parties. The flute probably is expected for a diplomatic or royal affair. Remember: Fine crystal is thin and breaks easily. It must be carefully placed in a dishwasher, or better yet, washed by hand. *** TIP: Remove dripped candle wax on a tabletop with a credit card. Scrape with the grain of the wood. When finished use furniture polish or wax to restore the top's luster. ***

Prepare For Safe Winter Driving Top Questions Answered By The Tire Specialists (NAPSA) - While it’s always a good time to make sure your vehicle is in good shape, it’s particularly important when bad weather and the busy travel season occur. Vehicle maintenance and preparedness are key for keeping you protected but it can Proper maintenance is important be challenging to know where before you hit the road in rough to start. To help, here are the weather. answers to the most common winter driving questions that people ask. Q: What’s the most important thing to keep in mind when it comes to winter driving? A: Make sure that you allow extra time and slow down. Whether you’re cornering, stopping, accelerating or driving on a straightaway, reducing speed is the key to safe winter driving. Tires have a big effect on what the car can do. Tires are your car’s only point of contact with the road, and they influence how much control you have while driving. Before you’re on the road, make sure you have properly inflated tires and adequate tread depth to help your tires do their jobÑgrip the road and stop safely. Q: How can drivers prepare for winter road trips? A: Plan ahead and winterize your vehicle. Take your car in for routine maintenance, including checking your tires. Before you get on the road, check the department of transportation’s website for road conditions. Listen to the radio for announcements about accidents, road closures and travel advisories. Also, let someone know your route in case an accident occurs, and you get stuck in an area with no cell service. Q: What type of tires should I get for my vehicle, snow tires or all-weather tires? What’s the difference? A: The decision between studded and winter tires comes down to personal needs based on your commute and driving habits. Winter traction tires are specifically designed to provide the extra grip, braking and handling you’ll need to confidently drive on slush and packed snow. Studded tires offer additional traction in more treacherous winter driving conditions, such as ice. Chains can be important, too and are sometimes required - for traction when you’re traveling in the mountains or on icy roads. It is always recommended that you talk to a tire expert to help you make the best decision based on your need. Q: What should I have in my car in case of an accident? A: A winter accident could leave you stuck on the side of the road in cold, wet weather. Packing your car with a few essentials will help keep you safe and ready for any unexpected detours. Store snacks, water bottles, an ice scraper, flares, chains, a flashlight, blankets and a roadside safety kit in your trunk. And always carry a cell phone. Many Les Schwab stores also offer emergency roadside assistanceÑif your vehicle breaks down, especially due to tire- or wheel-related issues, they’ll do everything they can to help get you back on the road. The tire experts at Les Schwab Tire Centers can help ensure your vehicle is winter ready. Before you hit the road, they’ll check your tires’ air pressure and tread depth and do a visual alignment to ensure the

tires are wearing evenly. They’ll 5/25/17 1:27 PM also check your brakes, shocks and battery, all free as part of their pre-trip safety check. They have a full inventory of winter traction and studded tires, chains and other devices to meet your needs. To find a store nearby, visit store-locator. Safe travels.

Teacher Gifts continued from page 2

One way to make a thoughtful donation is through DonorsChoose. It is a nonprofit that allows teachers to post specific requests for their classrooms and donors to directly fund them. You can fund a project in the name of your child’s teacher or give the teacher a gift certificate to use on the project of her choice. If you browse the requests from teachers, you’ll see a wide range of needs and the donations needed to fill them, including requests for special science equipment, money for field trips and art supplies.

Dear EarthTalk: I want to set a good environmental example with my gift-giving this holiday season. Any tips on how— or even better, what—to give greener? -- Jane P., Bowie, MD The holidays are a time for giving but it is also important to be conscious about spending your gift budget wisely to eliminate packaging waste, buy products that will last and patronize manufacturers and retailers known for social and environmental responsibility. So, what are some ideas? The Waterpebble is a great gift for anyone trying to lead a greener lifestyle. This gadget tracks how much water you use in your shower.

Meanwhile, Green Toys sells a wide range of 100 percent recycled kids products, including books, toy cars, baby toys and more at reasonable prices. Of course, holiday presents do not always have to be physical items. A great idea for gifts that are personal and different are sports/active lessons.

The holidays are meant to show those who are special to you how much you love them and there are no better gifts than those that are personal, thoughtful and not only good for those who receive but also the environment!

at the Monarch Grove Sanctuary in Pacific Grove — aka Butterfly Town, USA —along the Central Coast. Or check in with the National Audubon Society and sign up for its Christmas Bird Count, a citizen science project that’s been going strong for more than 100 years. Dozens of sites around the state look for volunteer bird watchers every December to January. Whale Watching: Every winter some 25,000 Pacific gray whales undertake one of the longest migrations in the animal kingdom. Making a round-trip journey of more than 10,000 miles from their Arctic feeding grounds to the warm breeding lagoons of Baja California, these behemoths travel the length of California, often close to shore. Numerous outfits up and down the state offer whalewatching excursions to bear witness to these amazing creatures. Spectator Sports: There’s plenty of action throughout the state for any sports fan, including pro football in L.A. with the Rams and Chargers, and the Bay Area with the 49ers and the Raiders. There are several college bowl games, too, including the granddaddy of them all, the Rose Bowl. NBA fans can check out the Golden State Warriors in Oakland, the Sacramento Kings, and the Lakers and Clippers in L.A., while California’s roster of NHL teams features the San Jose Sharks, L.A. Kings and Anaheim Ducks. Two of the country’s premier golf tournaments take place during the winter months, as well (again, it’s California) — the Farmers Open at Torrey Pines (late January) and the Pebble Beach Pro-Am (early February). Ice Skating: Seasonal open-air ice skating rinks pop-up around California for the winter, adding a festive holiday air. You’ll find rinks in San Francisco’s Union Square, in downtown Santa Monica, at Pershing Square in downtown L.A., and even seaside in San Diego at the Hotel del Coronado. The list ends here but the possibilities and mash-ups are endless. For instance, it’s absolutely true … you can actually ski and surf in the same day in Southern California. Thanks to the proximity of ski areas like Big Bear and Mt. Waterman to L.A., you can schuss and shred in one day. And boy, will that soak in the Jacuzzi feel good later.

California Commentary

Don’t Let California Become Chicago Well, it happened again. Homeowners in Chicago now face yet another property tax increase to pay for the city’s mounting pension debt. Local taxpayers have already been slammed with nearly $1.1 billion in property tax increases, primarily for police, fire and teacher pensions. That’s on top of a 29 percent tax on water and sewer bills to save the Municipal Employees pension fund; a 56 percent telephone tax hike in 2014 and another 28.2 percent next year for the Laborers fund. Other “revenue enhancements” include a new garbage collection fee, a bag tax, and increases in water, sewer and city sticker fees, hotel and parking taxes and parking fines. A few weeks ago, the Chicago Sun-Times reported that another shoe is about to drop — a property tax hike scheduled in 2020 to pay for police and fire pensions. Many Windy City residents have had it. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the greater Chicago area leads the nation in population loss and has had two such years in a row. This is what happens when taxes become so burdensome — people vote with their feet. Not surprisingly, the numberone destination for residents of Illinois fleeing their high-tax state (the fiscal woes are not limited to Chicago) has been Texas — a state with low taxes and greater economic opportunity. Without a radical shift in policy away from high taxation and toward economic freedom, Chicago is bound for the same fate as Detroit, a city which reached its population peak in the 1950 census at over 1.8 million people, and decreased in population with each subsequent census. As of the 2010 census, the city has just over 700,000 residents, reflecting a loss of a staggering 61 percent of the population. Well, it happened again.

Proposition 13 also provides protection to taxpayers generally by requiring voter or property owner approval for new or higher taxes. Without Proposition 13, Californians could soon experience what it is like to live in Chicago without ever having to leave their homes. It may be too late for Chicago as it seems destined to suffer the same fate as Detroit. But it’s not too late for California. We are a great state with virtually unlimited potential, a vibrant populace and bountiful natural resources. Moreover, the pension crisis that grips California would be manageable with the right policies. When the Titanic was headed for the iceberg, a one-percent course change 10 miles away would have prevented the disaster. Will California make a course correction now before it’s too late? *** Jon Coupal is the president of the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association.

The color, paired with the ovoid shape, is how the eggplant got its name. • If you live in Rochester, New York, you're doubtless used to dealing with the hazards and inconveniences of snow and ice. It's America's snowiest city, after all, averaging 94 inches every winter. • Those who study such things say that paternity leave can have significant domestic impacts. Research shows that men who take a few weeks of leave when they have an addition to their family spend more time on domestic chores and taking care of the kids than men who don't. They cook more, and they're even 50 percent more likely to do laundry. The most interesting finding, though, is the fact that these changes are long-term; the effect tends to last the rest of a man's life. • Those who suffer from nescience are unlikely to know what "nescience" means Ð an absence of knowledge. • The first wristwatch was made by an English clockmaker in 1571.

reminders a week ahead of time. Remind guests to bring a large container so that they can take their cookie assortment home. * Avoid duplication of cookies/ recipes by asking guests to RSVP and tell you about the cookies that they will bring. You might want to suggest selecting a recipe that has a special family meaning or one that is traditional to their background. This is a great way to learn about the traditions and recipes of other cultures and ethnic groups. * Ask each guest to bring a copy of their recipe to pass around with a little information about the origin or memory associated with the cookie. Having a list of the ingredients also ensures that people with food allergies can protect their health. * If the cookies or candies have been frozen, label them “Previously Frozen.” * Set a beautiful table and arrange all the cookies as the guests arrive. * Create separate sample cookie and exchange cookie areas -- either ends of a table or on separate small tables. Keep each recipe on its own plate. * Design the table or areas in a layout that provides easy access to the treats from all sides. * Eating sweets induces thirst! Have self-serve pitchers of ice and sparkling water on hand along with warm and cool drinks, cups, plates and napkins. This is a gathering where you can make your own rules and traditions, like baking these Easy Four-Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies every year. Relax, and don’t forget to enjoy your own party!

LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Watch out for distractions that could cause delays and leave you running twice as fast to finish your work by the 15th. Then go ahead and have fun. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) You might prefer to work on current tasks on your own. But be open to a potentially useful suggestion from someone who admires you and wants to help. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Avoid rushing full gallop into that volunteer project without knowing what's expected of you. Take things a step at a time as you begin to find your way. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Good news: You should begin to feel more comfortable expressing your emotions. This will go a long way in helping you with that personal situation. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) An old friend gives confusing signals. Best advice: Don't assume that things will necessarily work themselves out. Ask questions and demand straight answers. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) A new relationship needs time to develop. Be careful not to let your emotions flood your natural sense of caution. Meanwhile, check out that new job offer. BORN THIS WEEK: Your sense of right and wrong sometimes causes you to come into conflict with others. But you invariably come out ahead.

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Start preparing now to make sure you get the credit you're due for all that effort you put in to get that project off the ground. A new challenge emerges after the 15th. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) You're still charging full steam ahead on the job -- and that's fine. But take time to share the joy of preparing for the upcoming holidays with folks you love. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A former detractor resists joining your ranks just yet. Give him or her time to learn more about what you're doing. Meanwhile, devote more time to friends and family. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Be careful not to be goaded into a tiff by someone who might be looking for a fight. Remain cool as you make your exit. Be assured that others will rally to your support. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Kudos on getting the welldeserved Lion's share of the rewards for a job well-done. Now you can take a breather from your workaday duties and spend time with your family. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) You enjoy a quick spurt of renewed energy just in time to meet that upcoming deadline. A potentially romantic situation looms. How it develops will be up to you.
