Christmas! It’s here, and so was the Julian Junior High’s Christmas Toy Drive! Hello, my name is Kali. I am in 6th grade. Finally, I am going to tell you about The Julian Christmas Toy Drive. The Julian Junior High Service Elective class will be putting on the Julian Christmas Toy Drive of 2017.  A toy drive is a charity event that collects toys or money for them to be distributed to children in need, of course, we accepted toys that were new and not used. The toy drive started on November 22, 2017  and ended on December 14, 2017.  It was be located at Julian Junior High, 1704 Cape Horn Ave, Julian, CA 92036.  The reason the toy drive was created, was so you can be a child in need's Secret Santa, so you can bring joy to a child just like your own, so for once a child can get a great, fun, cheerful, Christmas toy. Thank You to all who donated to our Toy Drive.

My Christmas And New Year’s Traditions San Diego Has A Meth-Related Death Every 23 Hours

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

A record number of San Diegans died last year because of meth, the San Diego County Methamphetamine Strike Force’s latest report shows. There were 377 meth-related deaths in the region in 2016, the most recorded in a single year and 66 more deaths than in 2015, when 311 meth fatalities were reported. This means that on average in 2016, a San Diegan died every 23 hours because of meth. "The trend line is very alarming and continues to head in the wrong direction,” said County Board of Supervisors Chairwoman Dianne Jacob. “Meth is taking a terrible toll on more and more San Diego families, and we must step up our efforts to fight this killer and connect more people with treatment programs." • There were 12,595 emergency room visits due to methamphetamines in 2015 compared to 10,254 in 2014. Data from 2016 won’t be available until 2018. • 4,689 people were admitted to County-funded treatment programs due to meth abuse last year vs. 4,564 in 2015. • 56 percent of adult arrestees tested positive for meth in 2016, compared to 49 percent the previous year. • The number of juvenile arrestees also jumped from 8 percent in 2015 to 14 percent in 2016. Most Meth Coming from Mexico San Diego County has had a long history with meth and the problems that come along with it. While the region is no longer considered the “Meth Capital of the World,” and little meth is produced locally, there is more meth available, and it is more potent and cheaper than ever. continued on page 8

My name is Natalie Montague, I am in 6th grade and I love Christmas. The night before Christmas we make cookies and put out the cookies and some milk for Santa. Then we say up all night till 12 am in the morning and open up presents. My mom and grandma makes breakfast. We always eat tamales with breakfast too. Then we will go to sleep and wake up at 7:30 and open up our stockings and have fun together and then we had home and open up our presents that are under our tree. Then we open up our stockings at my house then we also have fun and have coffee, hot chocolate, and a dessert. Then on New Year's Eve, I am in Phoenix, AZ with my family and they have alcohol for the adults and the kids have sparkling cider. But one time my little cousin, Ruby, she drank a tiny cup of alcohol and she was hyper till she was fast asleep. It took her 30 minutes to be worn out. It i like having coffee. On New Year's day, I am still awake at 4 am from the celebration. I don't really sleep so I am use to it. But my dad has work the next day and he gets up at 4:30 and leaves at 5:00.

What Christmas Is And The Meaning To Others

by Kohana Murillo Grade: 6th

Christmas isn't always about the presents and getting things. It’s not about the snow or all the beautiful lights to glaze upon. It isn't about having a huge tree or about making gingerbread houses. Although that’s all the fun stuff to do all Christmas. It can also be a time to be caring and being helpful. You can always help a family in need on Christmas if they can't get a tree or if they can't get presents to give. You can always lend a hand to those

The Julian Library got creative during the power outage last week, with no lighting, computers or heat the staff organized some patrons to help decorate with paper sissors and glue, a few bows and bingo it’s Christmas! in need on this special holiday. Christmas is the best holiday to spend time with those you love and the ones you care for. In the month of December you should always be a caring person. It’s a time to be thankful of the people around you and that have been around you. The day of Christmas is a special day to everyone it could be your birthday or you could even be having a sibling coming to this world that day, but it’s always a special day for everyone. The meaning of Christmas is not to be greedy, not to be unthankful, not to be rude, not to be unhappy. It’s always a day to be all so joy and happy because it’s the most beautiful day to be having with your family and friends. You can have hot chocolate with cookies and you can go Christmas Caroling with friends and family to enjoy this Christmas holiday. When in this beautifu snowy season you can always be in the spirit and you can always put people in the Christmas spirit. Christmas is a day where you get a Christmas tree and you put lights on the tree and you put ornaments on it. You water your tree and you take pictures of the tree then you take pictures of your family by the tree. So now you know what to do in Christmas and what the meaning of Christmas is I wish you a big Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!! Happy Holidays to you and your family and friends.

Junior High-lites

It’s That Time Of Year

by Gabriella Copeland and Jazmine Pitman

December has arrived with many fun activities, leaving November with many memories. Power outages struck across Julian, and as a result, the school was canceled December 7 and 8. Unfortunately, this weather event lead to postponing the Winter Formal from December eighth to the twelfth. Before the power outage the community service elective, headed by Mrs.Wylie, helped out on an annual food drive. They worked with the Methodist Church Mountain Manna food drive. It was a little competition for both the elementary and junior high. Mrs. Stanley’s fourth and fifth class won for the elementary, and Mrs.Cruz’ eighth-grade class won for the junior high. Each winning class got a cookie party put on by the Methodist church. The schools collected a total of 1,400 food items. This was an amazing event that most definitely helped out many people in need. Meanwhile, another fund raiser was happening at the junior high: a poinsettia sale! Each student individually sold poinsettias to their family and friends to raise money for the A.S.B. The long-awaited annual junior high play has just held their auditions. Along with the dance, auditions were also postponed. They were held this Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday during lunch and P.E. The play this year will be Willy Wonka. Book reports were due on December twelfth. To get extra-credit Ms.Hill let us make a Google slide presentation on our book topic. On December 13, 14, and 15th we had minimum days to celebrate Christmas and the Winter season. On December 15th we had a white elephant present trade. And Mrs.Cruz did origami Christmas trees. That’s all, for now, Merry Christmas!

Let’s fiddle and chill out while the State burns “Chill out”, she declared on the local social media site Julian Connections! Implying we should get over it, the state-wide conflagration that continued to threaten thousands of lives, property, DOLEV and costing enormous economic burden to residents, tax payers and insurance companies. The governor called this the new normal. Chill out yourself Ms. insensitive! This shocking utterance occurred just after, locally and elsewhere, Mother Nature decided to begin the day with a few very noticeable stress-inducing bangs and shakers continuing with a few hundred more while making adjustments in geography and attitudes. As if the power outage, high wind, red and purple warnings and incessant SDGE phone calls weren’t enough. After the holocaust of Santa Rosa the middle of our State to the coast was on fire and so, let’s fine tune the attitude adjustment via a flaming inferno in Fallbrook and send it roaring to the coast too. Why not just lay back and enjoy the ride? Reminded of the 03 and 07-horror and post-traumatic episodes those memories trigger, it is not too alarmist when making observations that stress levels have been significant. People are hurting. Thousands of rural residents had been without power, increasing enormous burdens that lasted six days and treated first responders and medical emergencies to high levels of fear and exasperation. The storm of flaming debris and toxicity proliferated everywhere as frightened residents ran for their lives, worried and fumed, everything lost. It must upset some people to see others in uncontrolled distress. Electrical equipment like computer systems, refrigerators, circuit breakers and other electrically dependent devices fail as a result of constant electrical surges, shutdowns and restarts. Scores of animals have perished. The cost is very bigly to quote another clown. Food has spoiled, pumping water for livestock and people shut down. So sad. Crises time again or should you just get over it? But let’s chill out. Thumb your nose at government and the infrastructure complainers. This is the same mentality some locals have pushed, longing for the 19th century idea that “we can do it all alone”. Insensitivity and disregarding others seems, in some circles, to be in vogue. I believe such indifferenceit is disdainful at a minimum and pathological in the extreme. Media quotes for this wind-driven calamity describe the situation like “trying to defend your house after building it on a railroad track”. Voicing indifference is showing your ignorance and is degrading to those who are overwhelmed by fear. Back in reality zone we are watching modern, state-of-the art war machines battle this nightmare with countless human systems working interactively showing the watchers what it takes to live and survive in today’s world. In case some don’t get it, the majority of us in all areas of the country want our infrastructure to be modern, secure and ready, not voluntary or optional. C. Englund

At The Palomar Observatory Zwicky Transient Facility Opens Its Eyes To The Volatile Cosmos

ZTF installed on the 1.2-meter diameter Samuel Oschin Telescope. The large-format CCD camera at the heart of ZTF is located inside the telescope tube, at the focus of the primary mirror. A new robotic camera with the ability to capture hundreds of thousands of stars and galaxies in a single shot has taken its first image of the sky, an event astronomers refer to as "first light." The recently installed camera is part of a new automated sky-survey project called the Zwicky Transient Facility (ZTF), based at Caltech's Palomar Observatory located in the mountains near San Diego. Every night, ZTF will scan a large portion of the Northern sky, discovering objects that erupt or vary in brightness, including exploding stars (also known as supernovas), stars being munched on by black holes, and asteroids and comets. "There's a lot of activity happening in our night skies," says Shrinivas (“Shri”) Kulkarni, the principal investigator of ZTF and the George Ellery Hale Professor of Astronomy and Planetary Science at Caltech. "In fact, every second, somewhere in the universe, there's a supernova that's exploding. Of course, we can't see them all, but with ZTF we will see up to tens of thousands of explosive transients every year over the three-year lifetime of the project." From 2009 to 2017, ZTF’s predecessor, the Palomar Transient Factory, caught the blinking, flaring, and other realtime changes of transient objects in the sky. The project took advantage of the fact that Palomar has three telescopes—the 48inch Samuel Oschin Telescope, the 60-inch telescope and the 200-inch Hale Telescope— all under the management of Caltech. During the Palomar Transient Factory's surveys, the automated Samuel Oschin Telescope acted as the discovery engine, with the automated 60inch following up on any targets found and gleaning information

about their identities. From there, astronomers would use the larger 200-inch Hale Telescope—or the W. M. Keck Observatory, which is co-managed by Caltech—to study in detail the various cosmic characters that enliven our night skies. "Going from one telescope to the next allowed us to perform a sort of triage and pick out the most interesting objects for further study; it was a vertically integrated observatory," says Kulkarni. "The reason we called it the Palomar Transient Factory is because it did astronomy on an industrial scale." The Zwicky Transient Facility is the powerful sequel to the Palomar Transient Factory. The name Zwicky refers to the first astrophysicist at Caltech, Fritz Zwicky, who arrived at the university in 1925 and who would go on to discover 120 supernovas over his lifetime. ZTF's new state-of-the-art survey camera, recently installed at the Samuel Oschin Telescope, can see 47 square degrees of sky at a time, or the equivalent sky area of 247 full moons. That's seven times more sky than its predecessor could see in a single image. What's more, ZTF's upgraded electronics and telescope-drive systems enable the camera to take 2.5 times as many exposures each night. ZTF will scan the entire sky over three nights and the visible plane of the galaxy twice every night. By scanning the sky so much faster, astronomers will discover not only a greater number of transient objects but also will be able to pick up the more fleeting events, those that appear and fade quickly. "ZTF will be faster than its predecessor because each image probes a wider swath of sky out to greater distances," says Richard Dekany, the project

manager for ZTF at Caltech. "Each image the camera takes is more than 24,000 by 24,000 pixels." The images are so huge that they are hard to display on computer screens at full resolution. Roger Smith, the team's technical lead at Caltech, has calculated that it would take 72 ultra-high-definition monitors to display one of ZTF's images at full resolution. "I'd like to build that so we can really see the glory of ZTF's full resolution," says Smith, who has been working on the project along with Dekany, Kulkarni, and many others since it received funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF) in 2014. About half of ZTF is funded by the NSF; the rest comes from its partners, including the Weizmann Institute for Science, the Oskar Klein Center at Stockholm University, the University of Maryland at College Park, the University of Washington, the Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron, Humboldt University, Los Alamos National Laboratory, the TANGO Consortium of Taiwan, the University of Wisconsin at Milwaukee, and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. ZTF images will be adjusted, cleaned, and calibrated at Caltech's astronomy and data center known as IPAC. IPAC software will search the flood of data generated by ZTF for light sources, in particular those that change or move. These data will be made public to the entire astronomy community. "The data archive will grow by 4 terabytes of data each night," says George Helou, the executive director of IPAC and a co-investigator on the NSF grant. "This is a unique project promising new types of discoveries." Other NSF co-investigators include Caltech's Tom Prince, the Ira S. Bowen Professor of Physics, and Bryan Penprase, dean of faculty at Soka University of America. ZTF's project scientist is Matthew Graham of Caltech. Smith says that designing and building ZTF to capture such large images was particularly challenging given that the camera itself has to fit into a relatively

small 70-year-old telescope tube. "The camera obstructs the light passing through the telescope toward the primary mirror, so we had to keep its size down while also maximizing the amount of sky it can observe," he says. ZTF's new first-light image is a taste of what's to come. It showcases the large scale of the images and highlights the turbulent star-forming nebula known as Orion. Astronomers are excited for the unexpected findings that will come from ZTF. One of the Palomar Transient Factory's biggest discoveries came in 2011 when it caught a supernova, named SN 2011fe, just hours after it had exploded. ZTF will further expand our knowledge of young supernovas along with a host of other cosmic objects, including planets around young stars, exotic binary star systems, and near-Earth asteroids. "ZTF will survey the dynamic universe unlike ever before," says Mansi Kasliwal, assistant professor of astronomy at Caltech and a member of the ZTF team. "With its immense survey speed, ZTF can look at moving objects in the solar system, such as near-Earth asteroids, as well as cataclysmic eruptions of stars flickering in our own Milky Way galaxy. ZTF will find supernova explosions in faraway galaxies and even find electromagnetic counterparts to gravitationalwave sources detected by LIGO. It's going to give us a treasure trove of discoveries." Kasliwal notes that the gravitational-wave counterparts, once identified using ZTF, can be studied in detail using the Global Relay of Observatories Watching Transients Happen (GROWTH) project, led by Kasliwal. In the future, even larger surveys will build on ZTF's rapid scans of the sky; these surveys include the upcoming Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST), scheduled to be operational in 2023. "ZTF will be 10 times faster than the Palomar Transient Factory, while the upcoming LSST will be 10 times faster than ZTF," says Kulkarni. "ZTF is a step toward the future." ZTF's science survey phase is scheduled to begin in February of 2018. The project will be completed by the end of 2020.

New Benefits And Insurance Options You Can Expect In 2018 (StatePoint) Ever wondered whether your insurance policy was actually working for you? You may be in luck, as your insurance plan may start to follow the same trends being adopted in other industries: simpler, more convenient and personalized products – all supported by the latest mobile technology. This year, Stephanie Shields, a product marketing and development expert from Aflac, (Aflac herein means American Family Life Assurance Company of Columbus and American Family Life Assurance Company of New York) says that policyholders can expect these “value-added services” to become less of a nice-tohave and more of a given: • Telemedicine: Consulting with a physician and getting treatment online offers greater flexibility and may become essential to busy people. • Fraud protection: Identity theft is likely top of mind for policyholders and businesses.

Golden Age Of El Centro For A Lucky Boy 1936

by Richard Allen Bailey

While pulling away from the curb in front of the Western Union Office in 500 block of Main St. in El Centro I was standing up beside my Aunt Sue Jennings Miller when Tommy Franke, the very small older Western Union Delivery Man pulled right out in front of her Plymouth on his bicycle — I shouted out and Aunt Sue hit the brakes and I hit the dashboard. Knocked my front teeth so they were all pointed backward. All the way home she kept telling me how lucky I was to have seen Tommy in time for her to stop and not mash him. I was lying on the front seat all bloody while she went in to get my Mom (her sister). Mom looked at me — put her fingers in behind my teeth and pulled them back into their sockets. She told me I was very lucky that they all stayed in and that her hands were clean. When she took me to our Dentist Dr. Reynard Plemons he also said I was lucky they snapped back in but that later in a few years I would probably have buck teeth. All my family had very nice teeth so I guessed that was just my luck to be different. Kept thinking what a really lucky kid I had become for saving Tommy. He was so neat to see on the bike all over town delivering telegrams. He wore pants holders on both pant legs so he looked like he was riding horseback. I hope he knew it was my luck that made his long life possible. When I was 10 years old in 1942 my teeth were starting to drift forward, Dr. Plemons told Mom that I needed to see an Orthodontist and the nearest one was Dr. Faulkner in San Diego. My Mom and Dad talked it over and with the start of the World War II there was gasoline, food, tire rationing and they needed to get special stamps. The speed limit was 35 M.P.H. on the old two lane road over to San Diego. Dr. Faulkner agreed to see us every Saturday at 11:00 A.M. With the start of the war there was a blackout in the entire coast area. No lights. No driving after dark. The luck was still holding as we got to stay at Ocean Beach, on the channel by the old wood bridge that crossed between Ocean and Mission Beach, in my Aunt Belle Benchley's home. My Aunt Lula and Granny Jennings also lived there. We could stay in a little cottage that was built on pilings over the channel and was connected by a walkway over the sand to the main house. My good luck extended to my brothers at home in El Centro as they had no Mom to watch them do their mischief since my Dad worked late on Saturdays. When the dentist started on me he put a mesh like container filled with pink goop around my front upper teeth and told me to not wiggle or talk. As he mashed my jaws together some of the goop came out the back end and was tickling my throat and I started to gag. Mom said to be quiet and sit still or I would get a spanking. When he removed the device he noticed the long string of goop hanging out the back and said how lucky for me that I did not swallow it. My understanding of being lucky was being really tested. When we went back in two weeks to get the braces installed he wrapped metal around the teeth and built a little railroad track out of three wires to start to pull the teeth back into position. After about 45 minutes I really had a bad headache. My Mom kept telling me how lucky I was because it would go away in a couple of days if I was good. Had the braces for several months and one day at the end of recess we were all just streaming in from playing when someone off to the side kicked a ball toward the school entrance. Over 200 kids and I was so lucky it hit me in the mouth since I was the only kid in school with braces. Anyone else the ball might have knocked their teeth out. Mine were already anchored. I still have scar tissue inside on my front lip. A real badge of honor. On my 12th birthday my Dad took me to the Dept. of Motor Vehicles and was given a learners permit so I could help my Mom drive to San Diego. At 35 M.P.H. it was about four hours because we always would get stuck behind some hay trucks that went up the grade about 3 to 5 M.P.H. No place to pass. I was still being lucky because I got to fill the evaporative canvas bag we hung on the front bumper in case we or the car needed water. I was again lucky because just farm boys usually got the 12 yr. old permit to drive. I must have been the luckiest kid in school. Sometimes when the braces were tightened and my head was really hurting I would climb a piling on the beach and sit for several hours just watching the current in the channel and the sea birds. My Aunt Lula told my Mother that something was wrong with me to be able to sit so still for so long. My Mom just reminded her of how lucky I was to have the beautiful water to hold my attention and get my mind off of my teeth. One time a wire snapped and jabbed me in the jaw. Mom drove me down the shop at the Imperial Valley Hardware store where my Dad was the Service Manager. He took a pair of dykes and cut the wire and reminded me I was lucky it was not worse. This happened several times. I was very lucky. I started driving on the desert part of the road and gradually worked up to driving up the grade. I was 14 before I could drive in San Diego. I really was lucky. My luck still held because at the start of the 8th grade — came down with Rheumatic Fever and was out of school and on crutches. In December Mrs. Roberts started to tutor me making it possible to graduate with my class. I was lucky. That was a hard 8th grade because our Wilson School had burned and we were moved into the high school. One would think freshmen were low down but not so much as 8th graders in a high school. Thinking back over all my good luck — it really was. Still have very nice straight teeth and people are amazed when you put down driving information that started when you were twelve. Yes, I was very LUCKY!

Peter Hall will be in the Red Barn Friday for six to nine, Peter has been an active participant in the local music scene playing clubs, coffee houses and other venues around the county. In the singersongwriter tradition, he maintains both his solo-acoustic and electric ensemble careers. The best influences from Rock & Roll, Blues, Folk and Country Music have helped shape Peter's sound into one uniquely his own. His self-produced CD “Ataraxia” (1995) features nine original songs and one cover representing a variety of styles and arrangements. In live performance, he is able to draw on a large repertoire of original and cover songs. Peter’s second CD “Uncluttered” (2002) is a 13 song project recorded with all acoustic instruments. There are eleven originals and two covers spanning influences from Bluegrass to Rock. His third album “Schwagtown” (2009) contains a variety of styles including Rock and Roll originals, Blues standard and acoustic based songs. “Schwagtown” is his most ambitious project to date and Peter has high hopes for its success. Peter has appeared on both television and radio in San Diego. His musical career continues to climb to new heights. He has shared the stage with some of Southern California’s best talent and maintains a high threshold of songwriting quality. In 2011, Peter was a San Diego Music Award nominee for Best Acoustic.

My Thoughts

The Julian News 5

by Michele Harvey

What We Did When The Lights Went Out

by Kiki Skagen Munshi

The Merry Christmas Letter To All, And To All A Good Year After the Flustercluck when the chickens tried to write the annual Christmas letter I thought that this year I should step in early on (or step ON someone early IN) and do a proper job. So Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year from the Skagen Ranch and, especially from me, Hidalgo, the Red Romanian. Horse, that is. As might be guessed, we are all a year older, and it’s been quite a year. The Big Event was that in May we became movie stars… well, sort of. The movie was part of some competition to make an 8 minute movie in 48 hours and the theme they chose was “Renaissance”. At least, that’s what they said although it was really about knights in armor clanking around, on and off horseback, and had nothing to do with The Renaissance. Americans…what can you say? No sense of history. Alas, it was quite a horrible movie. One grave error, perhaps the worst, was made when they chose Ben to be one of the tournament horses and not me, simply because they thought I might be too energetic (ahem). Ben is quite nice but he simply isn’t star quality. I/I would not have lost my head in the tournament scene because of a (rather toothsome) big black mare in blue costume with a knight in full armor and a lance bearing down on me. Quite the contrary: We Romanians have been fighting invaders for years. Oh, well, at least Ben’s knight didn’t fall off when Ben decided the best place to be was elsewhere. The knight didn’t quite fall off, that is. We ‘extras’ snickered as he was pushed back on… The PH (that’s Personal Human who for us, Haiduc and me, has been the same PH for nearly eighteen years) messed up her ankle rather badly when she sprained it during the movie making and it now seems to have nerve damage but she has recently begun to ride us again. I am of two minds about this endeavor and illustrate that by spending the first ten minutes under saddle making sure my PH knows she only remains on my back because I’m being nice. Then I do as little as possible as slowly as possible. One has to protect one’s turf. The rest of us are in reasonably good health except for some of the chickens—quite a few, actually--who were eaten by a raccoon before our PH figured out that if she shut the chicken coop door at night the critter couldn’t get in. Sometimes humans…we won’t go there. So the Octochicks are now Quattrochicks but we have five gangly little Chickitos—little Buff Orpingtons. Apparently the PH has decided to color code the chickens by age, which would make sense if she actually ate the old, useless ones but our PH is a wuss… There has been chaos in catdom because we also have another cat. Goldie was abandoned by his former humans and eventually wandered in, skinny and unkempt. He is now kempt and purring but has interpersonal problems with the others, especially Scruff y Claws. Fortunately, he gets along with us horses. The most striking thing about the year, though, was the fruit. It was an outstanding year for fruit and we three horses went on pear patrol every morning for months. The pesky deer also liked the pears but for once there were enough to go around. Imagine the bounty. There was other fruit as well—apples which we also like and ate as they fell and we helped them fall, and we helped get them off the tree and so forth. We haven’t yet learned how to climb trees but Haiduc tries. And peaches, plums nectarines, prunes, almonds, quinces, persimmons, pomegranates and a medlar. The last is some weird English medieval fruit that The Kid (her name is actually Zia) wanted. We didn’t get any of those, cruelly being kept out of the area where they and the other stone fruit grew. What a feast it could have been… Speaking of The Kid, she came to visit in August when the PH had something done to her eye involving old age. Cataract, I think. It was great seeing her and she’s doing well. We understand Steve is doing well also, because the PH went to visit THEM. Otherwise, who would know since Steve has visited us for years. (And we hope he feels suitably guilty.) A few other things happened in our PH’s life. She left us to spend a month in India in February on what she claims will be her last visit there, but we don’t believe that. After she saw friends and family in Delhi, Jaipur and Ahmedabad our own friend, Regina, met her and they wandered up through Central India visiting a lot of places no one ever heard of. The PH also went to visit people in England and Scotland and attend a Chamber Music Festival in Ireland in June. Haiduc and I like chamber music (we ARE Europeans, you know…) but she didn’t invite us. In England she saw our friends Jenny and Chris and Julian and Katie and John and Joanna. The last two aren’t actually our friends because they have never come to visit, but we have hopes for the coming year. Visitors mean more carrots and treats. And there have been lots of visitors this year. Bill stayed a good part of the year until his divorce was final. He’s in Fallbrook now and misses us, or so he claims when he drops by. Two-Fer, the calico cat, misses him as she says he had a particularly pleasant knee to dig her claws into whilst purring in pleasure. Hers, not his. Then Julie stayed a month but she spent all her time petting the cats and none of it with US so she doesn’t count. There were others as well, the PH being gregarious. The PH also seems to continue to be involved in a lot of activities—she was elected to the Julian Community Planning Group (so to speak; only two people filed for three seats so they didn’t even appear on the ballot), is still with the Julian Arts Guild, gave two talks to the World Affairs Council (San Diego North County), is working on grants for the Volunteer Fire Department, may become involved in politics (some people never learn), is involved with Things and People Romanian (too complicated to go into), writes her weekly column for the Julian News, sings in the church choir and Julian chorale, and a few other things we probably forgot. Then she complains that she doesn’t have any free time to write or paint. Some people. She did manage to publish a children’s book,

Recently we experienced a power outage. In our neighborhood it lasted 5 days with the power back on for a few hours in the middle of it. Because of the strong winds, our electric company turned off our electricity to avoid downed wires that could spark fires. This was their way of not starting yet another wild fire. Smart on their part. Not so good for many of us. Some of our local friends live in neighborhoods that are supplied with water by their water districts. They just turn on their faucets and water flows out. We don’t have a water district. Like many folks around here we pump water from our well on our property and the pump needs electricity to pump the water to us. No electricity, no water. Here in the mountains of San Diego County, we get what we call east winds. The winds begin in the desert east of us and head west, gaining speed and momentum as they travel over the mountains and through the canyons, on their way to the coast. I read that if San Diego County was flat, the winds would seldom get beyond 10 or 15 miles per hour. Up here in the mountains we call that a light breeze. I Googled east wind and found East Winds apartments, East Wind herbs and acupuncture, a bookstore, a rehab clubhouse and many more headings that didn’t help my search about the east wind. Then I looked for it in Wikipedia but all learned was that references to east wind can be found in ancient Greek myths (Eurus, the east wind), Native American Iroquois culture, where the east wind is said to be brought by the Moose, whose breath blows the grey mist and sends down cold rains upon the earth. (This is a quote from Wikipedia). Bible references, A Charles Dickens quote and a Conan Doyle quote about the east wind in a Sherlock Holmes story are also available to see when Googled. So, you will have to take my word for an accurate description of an east wind. When our power went out Thursday, we were ready for it so far as having oil lamps and matches where we could find them. I filled the oil lamps and when I lit them, I set them down in the bathroom sink, the shower and in the kitchen sink. This way I knew that if they tipped over, none would burn the house down. After that we drove to Ramona for some errands and to eat dinner in Denny’s. We saw quite a few people that we knew there. On the way home, the only lights we saw were emergency lights and solar lights until we got to Santa Ysabel which was an oasis of light. From Santa Ysabel we drove home, 3 miles up the hill to Wynola which was very dark. It seemed like bed time so we fell asleep at about 8 o’clock. We continued going to sleep earlier and earlier each night during the power outage. Friday, still without power I found plenty of things to do. I couldn’t use my computer, my sewing machine, or my vacuum, so I kept a tea kettle full of water simmering on our stove. We cook with propane, so with a single match to light the pilot, we had a flame to cook on. Occasionally I poured some hot water into our kitchen sink so I could wash my hands when needed. The one thing that I never liked about camping was having dirty hands. I’m not fanatical about cleaning my hands, but I do want to be able to clean my hands whenever I want to clean them. Thanks to my son Robert, we had several dozen small bottles of frozen water that we were able to distribute throughout our refrigerator and freezer. We were very lucky. The only food we lost was ice cream. During the blackout we bought water. Our internal organs need water so they can stay healthy and we needed to keep water for washing hands and flushing toilets. After using a toilet a few times without flushing it, the odor can get really rank, so flushing was a must. We don’t use our yard as a bathroom because I don’t believe in killing plants just because I can’t flush a toilet. Husband Mike bought 5 gallon jugs of water. I can’t lift those 40 plus pounds of weight, so I bought 1 gallon bottles which I can lift easily. Refills of water are inexpensive in front of Don’s Market in Santa Ysabel. A 1 gallon refill costs a quarter and a 5 gallon refill costs a dollar. It only took me 1 day without power to learn that our house begins to get dark at about 3:30, so all the things that I wanted to do that needed light; I finished by 3:30. Soon after that I lit our oil lamps and distributed them throughout the house. Mike and I sleep on a waterbed and when it gets cold, it sucks the heat right out of our bodies. To stay warm, we laid 2 quilts between us and the mattress ( 1 fluff y one and one firm one) and laid 3 on top of us. We stayed very cozy and so did our indoor cats. When I had enough light, I worked on crafts, I read, I did some light gardening and I hung out laundry that didn’t fully dry in the dryer before the electricity went out. Organizing cabinets was on my list of things to do and sorting through things to give away and I wrapped a Christmas gift or 2. Initially I thought about living through the electricity outage as a form of camping. I like to think of myself as being fairly self-sufficient in times like this and I like to meet challenges that come in my everyday life. However, going three days between showers didn’t work well for me and now that my shoulder has healed enough for me to type my column, I didn’t like getting held back. Do we own a generator? No. I’ve lived here for nearly 34 years and haven’t needed one yet. However, if this type of weather keeps coming, we may relent and buy one. These are my thoughts.

Nonny, Nani , about an eleven year old girl who goes from El Centro to Rajasthan with her father in 1921, which has been well received (she says, if you want to believe a PH) but, unlike Whisper in Bucharest it doesn’t star one of us. Though Haiduc is still upset about THAT one. Gets his comeuppance, he does. Snicker. Read the book! And that’s about it. Well, it’s not ALL that happened during the year but it’s probably enough. We hope you and your have a wonderful holiday and a great New Year. Hidalgo, Haiduc, Ben, Two-Fer, Scruff y Claws, Nixie, Draga, Tabby Two, Goldie, Bruiser the rooster, fourteen hens and five Chickitos. And, of course, the PH--Kiki

Show Stoppers - Movies And Skits

Tracy Allen and her Elementarry school Show Stoppers after school program put on their show for parents teachers fellow students and friends last week. This year instead of a single production there where three short films and three skits all performed with young talent. The films utilized puppet animation and voice acting, the skits live students on stage. Thirteen students took part in the performance, which was moved to the Jaguar Den at the Junior High because of the power outage and maintenance work being done at the high school little theater. All in attendance enjoyed the show and are looking forward to the spring production, what will they come up with next?

Chef’s Corner Feast On Fish At Christmas

I’ve been reading about Christmas customs, holiday meals and traditional feasts in Europe. One of the things I love the most about studying food is the insight that culinary traditions give you into history and culture. Studying culinary traditions is a wonderful way to discover history through food. I particularly enjoyed reading about a tradition called The Feast of the Seven Fishes, also know as The Vigil, along with several delicious recipes for preparing fish. The fish often is used as a symbol of Christianity. Because of persecution faced by the early church, when a Christian met a stranger in the road, the Christian sometimes drew one arc of a simple fish outline in the dirt. If the stranger drew the other arc, both believers knew they were in good company. Preparing and eating seafood on Christmas Eve in celebration of the birth of Christ is an old European tradition. Many families abstain

Smelling-Salt Bottle

No, it's not a saltshaker -- this is a smelling-salt bottle made about in about 1850. It auctioned for $293. Smelling salts have been used to revive someone who is feeling faint or has lost consciousness since the days of the Romans. But it was not until the 18th century that smelling-salt holders became fashionable. Smelling salts (ammonium carbonate and water) release an ammonia gas that irritates the inside of the nose and causes rapid breathing. This means more oxygen is inhaled. Ammonia was made from shaved deer horns in ancient times and often was called "spirit of hartshorn." Victorians often used perfume with the smelling salts. The smelling-salt holder was opened and waved near the nose of the troubled patient. Many of the bottles were curved. Some were made of decorated metal and worn as part of a necklace. Some just looked like small saltshakers. A 2 5/8-inch marbleized glass "shaker" made of light blue and milk glass with a threaded cap sold for $293 at a Norman Heckler sale in Connecticut. It probably was made in Boston about 1850. *** Q: Our church owns an 1892 German Bible signed by Kaiser Wilhelm. It's been stored for many years in a safety deposit box. It's now on unprotected display in our church. I believe it has some value and should be protected, if only for the historic value of the Kaiser personally giving it to the church. I would appreciate any information you can give me about the Bible. A: Most old Bibles aren't worth a lot of money, but Kaiser Wilhelm's signature could make it very valuable. It would have to be seen by an expert to authenticate the signature. Wilhelm II (18591941) was Germany's last Kaiser. He reigned from 1881 to 1918, when he abdicated and left Germany. If the church is going to display the Bible publicly, you may want to get an idea of its value for insurance purposes. If the book has a leather cover, it should not be displayed on a wood surface unless the surface is covered by acid-free paper. Wood is acidic and can damage leather. The pages should not be left open and exposed to light or they will discolor. Special archival display cases are available that allow the book to remain open, but they are very pricey. If an autograph expert determines the book is not very valuable, it can be kept on display as long as it isn't exposed to light for long periods of time. *** HOLIDAY TIP: Chocolate molds can be used to make candy and other party food. Pour melted butter into the mold, put the filled mold into the freezer. Take the mold out and unmold the fancy shaped pieces of butter for parties. There is hidden value in contemporary pottery. You find it at shops and garage sales at low

Meth In San Diego continued from page 1

The highly addictive and deadly drug is being manufactured and smuggled across the border by Mexican drug cartels. Today, most of the methamphetamine in San Diego County is coming from Mexico. The District Attorney’s Office is addressing the issues caused by the influx of methamphetamine in several ways. The DA prosecutes individuals who transport and smuggle methamphetamine across the border, some of whom are now using juveniles to transport drugs which are fatal if absorbed or ingested. At the same time, law enforcement is focusing on dealers who are distributing meth in local neighborhoods. Prosecutors carefully review overdose death cases, identifying the dealers and holding them accountable for their actions when someone dies. Also, when the DA encounters defendants who haven’t had the opportunity to address their addiction problems, the office offers rehabilitative options through collaborative court programs like Drug Court, Veterans Court and Homeless Court. “Sending addicts to jail or prison without addressing their addiction problems does not solve the drug problem in our community,” said District Attorney Summer Stephan, adding that 6,024 cases were filed in 2016 where there was at least one meth charge, 736 more than in 2015. “By using Collaborative Courts when appropriate, we rehabilitate these individuals through treatment programs, giving them the tools they need to overcome their problems and become productive members of our community.” With availability going up and prices coming down, meth is having more negative consequences in San Diego families and communities. “The increased availability and potency have contributed to more meth-related deaths, more emergency room visits and more problems for individual users and their families,” said Nick Macchione, director of the County Health and Human Services Agency and tri-chair of the Meth Strike Force. “Many of the people who are dying are middle age, have been using meth for a long time and also have other serious health conditions.” Meth arrests for selling and possession of meth increased to 8,428 in 2016 vs. 6,849 the year before. The price of meth dropped from $360-$600 per ounce in 2015 to $250-$450 last year. Meth also adversely affects the older adult population. Data collected by Adult Protective Services suggests that nearly 20

percent of reported adult abuse cases involved meth; most are meth-using adult children of the victim. Treatment is Available The County funds residential and outpatient treatment programs across the region to help people recover from addiction. “Drug treatment is available and recovery is possible,” said Alfredo Aguirre, director of HHSA’s Behavioral Health Services. “Family members and loved ones should know that treatment can improve lives.” People experiencing a drug addiction or who want to anonymously report meth or drug activity are encouraged to call the Meth Hotline at (877) NO-2METH or visit www.no2meth.org. Treatment is also available by calling the County’s Access and Crisis Line at (888) 724-7240 or by calling 2-1-1.

ongoing internet monitoring and full identity restoration after a data breach. • Bill negotiation: The everchanging health care system is often confusing to navigate. Ongoing education, as well as help understanding medical bills, can ultimately mean greater access to efficient, affordable care. Transformed Benefits Insurance providers will likely shift the customer experience to follow that of retailers and other industries. In 2018, expect to see insurers such as Aflac offer more cohesive insurance policies that combine multiple benefit types into one plan. Beyond the Basics You may find things that were once luxuries, such as 401K matching, Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA) and even annual bonuses, are not as successful in meeting the expectations of today’s employees. As those expectations grow, successful businesses can continue to close the gap with such services as: • Health advocacy: Access to round-the-clock personal health advocates who can answer health care and insurancerelated questions. • Financial and legal fitness: Access to financial and legal advisors who can educate consumers on the preparation of wills and other legal documents. • College-advisory services: These might include resources to help lower college costs and navigate the admissions process. • No more “one-size-fits-all”: Communications from benefits providers may be more tailored to individual needs. • Bite-sized communications: Concise information about workplace benefits, tips for using benefits to help protect financial security and better explanations of coverage combinations that are appropriate at various life stages. • New format: While some benefits information will still be delivered in the typical booklet format, more businesses may consider using online articles, digital signs, brown-bag luncheons and town halls. • Frequent communications:

1-877-R-1-EARTH WasteFreeSD.org Employers may communicate about benefits throughout the year, or time communications to coincide with life events, such as employee anniversaries. Time Spent Smarter In 2018, employers who have not yet adopted online platforms to manage benefits may do so. Advantages include yearround, convenient access to pertinent information and onepage views of all benefits options and selections, enabling you to identify any holes you may have in coverage. Penny-Pinching More voluntary benefits, such as accident, critical illness/ cancer, hospital indemnity, life and disability insurance, are on the horizon. According to the 2017 Aflac WorkForces Report, 81 percent of employees see a growing need for voluntary insurance benefits, and 90 percent consider voluntary insurance at least somewhat part of a comprehensive benefits program.

Thanks to a tech-driven world and the growing demands of consumers, 2018 may see insurers expand their services to offer even more convenience and personalization.

Howdy! From Lake Cuyamaca “Dusty Britches” here along with ole “Cuss Cussler” sayin “by the hair of my chinny, chin, chin. How feloniously mentally lacking can a person be… you might ask… after hearing what Ranger Jay Blaylock had to report the other morning. Some mental giant came into the south parking lot recently late at night and lit a campfire… one large enough that the embers and coals were still red hot and burning at about 7:00 a.m. the next morning. With winds strong enough that S.D.G.E. issued a reverse notice that the electricity was going to be shut down as a result of the high winds! And, of course they left their collection of beer cans and trash behind. I guess some people were standing behind a stone pillar when common sense was being handed out. I feel better now that I got that out. I’ve got one thing to say… don’t ever come back! Ranger Blaylock is running with the waterfowl hunting again this year and he has it refined and working like a well oiled machine. All blinds were in place, hunters scheduled and checked out. December 3rd… 8-widgeon, 6-ring neck, 2-mallard; December 6th… 1-mallard, 1ring neck, 1- widgeon; December 10th… 1 canvas back, 1-mallard; December 13th… 2-canvas back. So far the waterfowl are winning and the weather is not co-operating. We usually have some precipitation by this time which brings the flyway further south. The “Junior Waterfowl Hunt” and “Shootout” is scheduled for Sunday, February 4th. More information to come on that event soon. Trout fishing has improved with cooler nights. We will be having two trout plants

in December. The first one will be the week of December 19th from Jess Ranch (1,200 pounds) and the other plant will be from Wright’s Rainbows (1,500 pounds) the week of December 28th unless scheduling changes. The bald eagles are making a daily appearance now dipping down into the Lake to pluck an unsuspecting rainbow trout out of the water. Early and mid-mornings are the best times to catch them in action. The Cormorants are increasing in numbers as we transition into winter. The Redwinged blackbirds are here in numbers….and the birders are out in force. We spent last week working on various projects… one of which I believe will make our R.V. customers happy. As the R.V.s get larger, our spaces get smaller… especially at Chamber’s Park, which was initially developed in the early 60’s….(1965). About 4 years ago we had some repaving done at Chambers which included curbs. This was a bad thing at Chambers because it limited the ability of the now larger R.V.s to turn into some of the sites, so we have limbed and trimmed the trees and removed a curb allowing them more space to get into their sites. The restaurant is always busy and preparing for the “Christmas” and “New Year Holidays”. They will be open for both. Dolores Gomez is making her list and checking it twice to make sure that her food is served with seasoning and spice... While Bobby Morgan is cooking up a storm in the kitchen all the while singing…. “On Wisconsin! On Wisconsin! Plunge right through that line! Run the ball clear down the field! A score is sure this time! So, On Wisconsin! On Wisconsin! Fight on for her fame! Fight fellows, Fight!, Fight!, Fight!...” December 30th…..The “Orange Bowl”, be there (at least on your TV)... Bobby would appreciate it. “Do the right thing, it will gratify some people and astonish the rest” ...”Mark Twain” “Tight Lines and Bent Rods”... Dusty Britches

® Dear EarthTalk: How will climate change affect real estate values? -- Jeremy Willson, Oxnard, CA It’s not surprising that questions like these are on readers’ minds today, given the relentless hurricanes in the Southeast, the devastating wildfires in California and other climate-related “Acts of God” bedeviling Americans recently. No doubt, climate change is already having an effect on real estate values. Of course, the 40 percent or so of Americans who live in coastal areas are at most risk of financial loss, given rising sea levels and the increase in intense storms and attendant flooding. A recent analysis by Attom Data Solutions found that home sales in floodprone areas grew 25 percent less quickly than in counties not prone to flooding over the last five years.

estate values won’t be affected by climate change, given the increase in extremely warm days across the country and the extension of the wildfire season across much of the West. Verisk, an insurance industry data analytics provider, reports that more than two million homes within California alone are already located in high risk zones. “The amount of fire that is projected to increase in a warmer world is an increase of anywhere between 100 percent and 600 to 700 percent, and that’s just with [a 1ºC increase in global average temperature],” says Mika Tosca of the non-profit Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS). “And if we’re projected to see 6ºC of warming, you can imagine what’s going to happen.” To make matters worse, the insurance system isn’t keeping pace with the onslaught of climate effects. When Hurricane Harvey flooded Houston in late August 2017, 85 percent of the victims didn’t have flood insurance and had to start all over again financially. And while fire insurance may be required as part of owning property, the economic impacts of increasing wildfires—so far residential

Sea level rise and coastal flooding could wreak havoc on real estate values for the 40 percent of Americans currently residing in coastal areas.

“Bone Up” On Wise Winter Weather Practices For Your Pet (NAPSA) - Notwithstanding their fur coats, pets can feel the cold just as humans do. So it’s up to you to ensure that your furry friends stay safe and warm during the colder months. To help, the Outdoor Power Equipment Institute (OPEI), the international trade association representing more than 100 power equipment, engine and utility vehicle manufacturers and suppliers, offers these tips: • Know your pet. Different pets have different levels of tolerance for cold. When going out for walks, a short-coated, elderly or frail dog may need a jacket to weather the elements. • Forgo haircuts. Let your dog’s winter coat protect him against the chill. Save shearing for Lucky loves to romp in the snow. Remember to check your pet’s paws, warmer months. • Check ears, paws and tails ears and tail after some outdoor regularly. You’re looking for signs winter fun. of frostbite or raw spots from ice and snow. Remove any clumps of frozen debris from between the paw pads each time your dog goes outside. • Wipe down your pet’s belly, legs and paws. Have a clean towel ready each time your dog comes inside to remove ice-melting chemicals, which can irritate and cause serious illness if licked or swallowed. • Clean up antifreeze spills. Due to the sweet smell and taste, pets will lick or drink antifreeze if they find it puddled on sidewalks or garage floors - but antifreeze is toxic to cats and dogs. Clean up spills and consider using a brand made from propylene glycol, which is less toxic. • Keep the water flowing. Dry winter weather can be dehydrating, as well as freezing. Keep a fresh supply of water inside for your pet and break up any ice accumulation on her outdoor water bowl. • Provide a warm place to rest. Winter days can be drafty and cold, so ensure your pet has plenty of elevated places inside to warm up. A cozy pet bed works beautifully. • Leave Fido at home. You’ve probably heard a lot about the dangers of leaving a pet in a hot car during the summertime, but the practice can be just as hazardous in the winter. It’s always best to leave your dog at home when you’re running errands. • Keep them leashed. More pets get lost during the winter than any other time of the year. Snow covers familiar scents, making it harder for your dog to find his way home. Keep your dog on a leash when you’re out and about and make sure his tag and microchip information are up-to-date in case he escapes. “Our TurfMutt environmental education stewardship program encourages people and pets to get outside, and my dog Lucky loves to romp in fresh snow as much as the next dog,” said Kris Kiser, president and CEO of OPEI. “But during the wintertime we have to be careful about when and how we expose our pets to the elements. Even though pets must go outdoors periodically to do their ‘business’ and get some exercise, no pet should be left outdoors during the winter months - if it’s too cold for you, it’s too cold for your pet.” Learn More For further information about the benefits of your family lawn for pets and people during all seasons, go to www.SaveLivingLandscapes. com and www.TurfMutt.com.

California Commentary

CalPERS Exposes Taxpayers To Unnecessary Risks Listing all the deficiencies of the California Public Employees’ Retirement System would be a daunting task. A long history of corruption involving so-called “placement fees,” dysfunctional governance, undue union influence and poor rates of return are themselves reasons why California needs fundamental pension reform. Now we can add to that list how CalPERS’s mindless pursuit of progressive, feel-good causes exposes taxpayers to even greater risk. In a scathing report released earlier this week, the American Council for Capital Formation blamed CalPERS’ poor investment results over the last decade on its increasing focus on “sustainable” investing strategies. Often referred to as ESG policies (environmental, social and governance) this strategy applies subjective opinions in an effort to measure the sustainability and “ethical impact” of an investment in a company or business. Of course, ESG judgments are as malleable as the varying opinions of those judging the criteria. Applying ESG standards as a primary investment strategy is the polar opposite of looking at actual financial performance. According to the report, “During this time of increased ESG investing and activism, the fund’s performance has suffered, converting a $3 billion pension surplus to nearly $140 billion deficit over the past 10 years.” The shift by CalPERS away from basing investment decisions on objective financial performance has also caught the eye of current employees and retirees who depend on CalPERS for their pensions. According to a recent Sacramento Bee article entitled, “Before CalPERS can save the world, public workers want it to save their pensions,” a police officer testified before the CalPERS board on ESG investing. The officer, who was also the treasurer of his local police association, stated, “We cannot afford to lose funding for law enforcement officers in exchange for a socially

responsible investment policy.” This is not to suggest that investors — either public or private — should shun investments in companies that have strong ethical standards or are focused on clean technologies. Quite the opposite. Many of those companies are solid performers. But so too are oil companies and gun manufacturers. As noted above, even public employees are beginning to question ESG investment strategies by CalPERS, as well they should. But let’s not forget who remains the ultimate backstop for California’s public employee retirement plans — California taxpayers. Bad investment decisions and dysfunctional governance have already taken their toll as the slice of general fund budgets for both state and local governments dedicated to pension costs continues to “crowd out” other public needs. Nothing could be more succinct than this statement from the Council of Institutional Investors: “When the managers take their eyes off the ball and the funds are mismanaged, taxpayers often have to make up the difference, especially with public systems like CalPERS — the largest public U.S. pension fund.” Ultimately, the answer is phasing out California’s system of defined benefits and, as other states have begun to do, shift to defined contributions. For the employees, the latter are similar to 401(k) retirement plans, are portable and allow the employee to choose the level of risk that is right for them. The best feature, however, is eliminating future risk to taxpayers because their financial obligation would be met at the close of every pay period. That’s much better than having hundreds of billions in unfunded pension obligations that will burden future generations for decades. In the meantime, however, Exxon and Smith & Wesson are still good investments. *** Jon Coupal is the president of the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association.

* It was 20th-century American author and journalist Emily Kimbrough who made the following sage observation: "Remember, we all stumble, every one of us. That's why it's a comfort to go hand in hand." * In Finland, it is traditional to pay a visit to the steam baths on Christmas Day. Nice and clean, Finns then put on new clothes before enjoying their Christmas dinner, which is served in the evening. * The nation of Canada has the longest coastline in the world. * Lots of people dislike lawyers, right? You might be surprised to learn, though, that it isn't a new phenomenon. In fact, in 1641 the Massachusetts Bay colony made it illegal for anyone to earn money by representing another in court, and in 1658, the legislature of Virginia passed legislation expelling all lawyers. * Most people -- even word nerds like yours truly! -- aren't aware that the plural form of Sphinx is Sphinges. * You might not be surprised to learn that the only bones to be found in a shark's body are in its jaws and teeth. * Hardly anyone in Greece has a Christmas tree. Instead, most homes have a wire suspended across a shallow wooden bowl with water in the bottom. A cross wrapped in a sprig of basil is suspended from the wire, and the water keeps the basil fresh. Every day during the holiday season, a family member dips the cross and basil into some holy water and sprinkles each room of the house. In addition to the religious significance, this ritual is said to keep away the kallikantzeri, mischievous goblins that appear during the 12 days of Christmas. *** Thought for the Day: "What is freedom of expression?

During the ancient 12-day Christmas celebration, the log burned was called the “Yule log.” Sometimes a piece of the Yule log would be kept to kindle the fire the following winter, to ensure that the good luck carried on from year to year.

“Gomer Pyle USMC”. So to end the year and acknowledge loved ones that passed and the famous that brought a little joy to us, a poem by John Donne says it best. No man is an island, Entire of itself, Every man is a piece of the continent, A part of the main. If a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less. As well as if a promontory were. As well as if a manor thy friend’s Or of thine own were. Any man’s death diminishes me, Because I am involved in mankind, And therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; It tolls for thee.

understand the reasoning behind SDG&E's decision to impose a fourday long voluntary power outage on our community. However, your actions caused great hardship to many local people with handicaps or disabilities, as well as to elderly indigent and "just getting by" residents who can't afford generators, long distance travel, or to repurchase their food for the month. While we hope the need to voluntarily cut power doesn't arise again. it may. We are hoping that SDG&E will take the humane issues above to heart, and figure out a way to relieve some of these burdens. In particular, would SDG&E be willing and ready to either loan or supply generators (for free or at a reduced price) to medical baseline consumers, based on the uncertain electrical conditions we continually have here in Julian, Wynola and Santa Ysabel? Additionally, the closest care centers offered to your Julian medical baseline consumers were located in El Cajon and Escondido, over 40 miles away from home. That is a great distance for myself, an asthmatic, to travel in order to operate a nebulizer. In the event SDG&E voluntarily disrupts our power again, why can't there be a care center set up in Julian's Town Hall or library? Perhaps an SDG&E representative would like to address our group at some time in the near future? Thank you for your attention to these very important issues. I look forward to hearing from you. Sincerely yours, Evelyn Goldschmidt cc: Diane Jacob, County Supervisor

from eating meat and serve only fish or other types of seafood on Christmas Eve. This traditional dinner is a southern Italian custom in which a meal of at least seven different kinds of seafood is served before midnight on Christmas Eve. A typical feast features various types of fish, eel, octopus, calamari, mussels, clams, sardines, shrimp and lobster. While researching the preparation of the seafood for this feast, I discovered a delicious recipe for Pasta with Sardines and Lemon Caper Sauce. This budget-friendly recipe is packed with flavor while using only a few, high-quality ingredients. It’s the perfect dish for feeding and serving a crowd during the holidays. PASTA WITH SARDINES AND LEMON CAPER SAUCE 8 ounces angel hair (capellini) or spaghetti pasta 7 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling 1 cup Panko breadcrumbs 1 package (about 4.3 ounces) imported sardines, in pure olive oil, drained and oil reserved 1/2 medium onion, minced 3 cloves garlic, peeled and minced 2 teaspoons lemon zest 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes 1 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon ground black pepper 3 tablespoons capers, rinsed 1/4 cup lemon juice, plus 3 tablespoons for sprinkling 3 tablespoons fresh parsley or basil, chopped 1.

toast until lightly browned and crunchy, stirring occasionally. Remove breadcrumbs to a bowl, season with salt and pepper, and set aside. 3. Add the remaining 4 tablespoons of olive oil and the reserved sardine oil to the pan and turn the heat to medium. 4. Once the olive oil is hot, add the onion, garlic, lemon zest, crushed red pepper, salt and pepper. Cook until the onions are soft and translucent (watch carefully so that mixture doesn’t burn). 5. Add the sardines and capers to the pan. Saute for about 2 minutes until warmed through, breaking up sardines into smaller pieces as you saute. When the sardines begin to turn golden, slowly stir in the lemon juice. 6. Add the cooked pasta and freshly chopped parsley or basil to the pan. Toss pasta to evenly coat with sauce, mixing well with the other ingredients. If the pasta seems too dry, add a little of the reserved pasta cooking water, 1 tablespoon at a time, to loosen it a bit. 7. The pasta should not be thick or heavy, the noodles should be lightly coated with oil. Add additional salt, pepper, pepper or chili pepper flakes to taste, if desired. Top with the breadcrumbs and a sprinkle of lemon juice. Serve hot. Serves 4.

Ask Pastor Rick

Religion In The News Archbishop Of Canterbury Calls On Climate Talks To Recognize ‘Urgent Priority’ Of Climate Change The Archbishop of Canterbury, Most Reverend Justin Welby, is encouraging world leaders meeting for the latest round of United Nations climate talks to recognize the “urgent priority” of climate change. Bonn, Germany is playing host to the UN COP23 global climate talks with representatives of most of the world’s governments discussing how they will meet the aims of the Paris Agreement. The discussions are being hosted by the Fijian Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama. In a direct letter to him, the Archbishop offered the support of the 85 million people strong Anglican Communion, which he leads. Archbishop Justin said that the communion “supports your work to ensure that at COP23 in Bonn, issues of climate change and global warming are recognized as an urgent priority requiring immediate attention. We are praying for the renewing of our world.” Source: Anglicannews.org, summarized by Pastor Rick

Ask Pastor Rick Is it OK to celebrate Christmas if you are a Christian? Isn’t it a pagan holiday? I get this question, and many like it at this time of year. I understand and sympathize with those who want to be distinctly Christian, and not be entangled with any pagan roots that may be associated with Christmas. However, I don’t think that way. It seems to me there comes a point when the root of something is so far gone that the present meaning doesn’t carry the pagan connotation anymore. Here’s an analogy I use: All languages have roots somewhere. Our days of the week grew out of pagan names too. We don’t stop calling Sunday, “Sunday,” because it was related to the worship of the sun, do we? In modern day English, “Sunday” doesn’t carry that connotation. That’s the nature of language. Today, Christmas means that we mark, in Christian ways, the birth of our Savior. Not to mark such an event and celebrate it, would be folly it seems to me.

feel better, even if you're only partly to blame for what happened. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Avoid overtaxing yourself, even if your energy levels are high and you feel that you can do it all. Best to pace yourself so you won't run yourself down before the holidays. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Your sense of humor helps get you through a stressful period.

The practical Twin takes it a step further and rallies support to turn the ideas into reality. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) It's time to stop being intimidated by someone's negative behavior. Start taking positive steps on your own to help strengthen your position down the line. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Look closely at that socalled golden opportunity.
