Award-Winning Author Richard Louv to Speak at Julian Library

The Friends of the Julian Library are excited to host author Richard Louv during the group’s annual meeting on Saturday, February 23 at 1:00 PM. Louv is a journalist and author of nine non-fiction books, including Last Child in the Woods: Saving Our Children From Nature-Deficit Disorder, The Nature Principle: Reconnecting with Life in a Virtual Age, and Vitamin N: The Essential Guide to a Nature-Rich Life: 500 Ways to Enrich Your Family’s Health & Happiness. Louv recently completed his tenth book, tentatively titled, Our Wild Hearts. We have the special privilege of hearing from Louv about this upcoming book ahead of it being published. His books have been translated and published in 24 countries, and helped launch an international movement to connect children, families and communities to nature. He is co-founder and Chairman Emeritus of the Children & Nature Network, an organization helping build the movement.

• If the Julian Cuyamaca Fire Protection District is dissolved, and all of its assets and liabilities are transferred to the County of San Diego and through its surrogate, County Service Area No. 135 (San Diego County Fire Authority); and • The County Service Area No. 135’s legal service area to provide fire protection and emergency medical services is expanded to include all of the Julian community (presently served by the Julian Cuyamaca Fire Protection District). The following is what will be voted on for approval of the dissolution of the Julian Cuyamaca Fire Protection District. CONCURRENT DISSOLUTION OF THE JULIAN-CUYAMACA FIRE PROTECTION DISTRICT AND LATENT POWER AREA EXPANSION OF COUNTY SERVICE AREA NO. 135 (RO18-09 ET AL.) WHEREAS, the Julian Cuyamaca Fire Protection District (FPD) has filed a resolution of application with the San Diego County Local Agency Formation Commission, hereinafter referred to as “Commission,” pursuant to the Cortese-Knox-Hertzberg Local Government Reorganization Act of 2000; and WHEREAS, the Julian-Cuyamaca FPD’s application requests dissolution and cession of all corporate powers within its approximate 52,000 acre jurisdictional boundary subject to certain terms, including concurrent Commission approval to transfer fire protection and emergency medical service responsibilities to the County of San Diego and its Fire Authority through County Service Area (CSA) No. 135; and WHEREAS, the County of San Diego, acting on behalf of CSA No. 135, filed a supporting resolution of application with the Commission requesting expansion of CSA No. 135’s existing latent power fire protection and emergency medical service area to include the affected territory; and WHEREAS, the application filings by Julian-Cuyamaca FPD and County of San Diego are complementary and processed by the Commission as a joint-reorganization proposal; and WHEREAS, the Commission’s Executive Officer has reviewed the joint-reorganization proposal and prepared a report with recommendations; and WHEREAS, the Executive Officer’s report and recommendations on the joint-reorganization proposal and need for concurrent sphere of influence amendments have been presented to the Commission in the manner provided by law; and WHEREAS, the Commission heard and fully considered all the evidence presented at a noticed public hearing along with reviewing the necessary concurrent sphere of influence amendments for consistency under Government Code Section 56375.5 on September 10, 2018. NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, the Commission hereby finds, determines, and orders the following: 1. The hearing was held on the date set therefore, and due notice of said hearing was given in the manner required by law. 2. At the hearing, the Commission called for, heard, and considered all interested parties and public comments and read and considered the Executive Officer’s report. 3. The Commission serves as lead agency under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) in considering two distinct “projects” associated with the joint-reorganization proposal and as detailed in the Executive Officer’s report: (a) accommodating sphere of influence amendments and the (b) reorganization itself. The Commission’s findings follow. a) The sphere of influence amendments qualify as a project, but are exempt from additional review per CEQA Guidelines section 15061(b)(3). This exemption appropriately applies because it can be seen with certainty spheres of influence are planning policies and amendments do not make any changes to the environment or authorize any new uses or services and thus there is no possibility that the activity in question may have a significant effect on the environment. b) The reorganization qualifies as a project, but is exempt from additional review under CEQA Guidelines section 15320. This exemption appropriately applies given the affected territory is already within an authorized fire protection and emergency medical provider and the reorganization will not change the geographic area where services are authorized and exercised. 4. The Commission conditionally APPROVES the following sphere of influence amendments. a) The sphere of influence for Julian-Cuyamaca FPD is amended to a transitional or zero status and shown in Exhibit A-1. b) The fire protection and emergency medical service specific sphere of influence for CSA No. 135 is amended to include all of the affected territory and shown in Exhibit A-2. continued on page 7

He speaks internationally on nature-deficit disorder, a concept he first introduced in Last Child in the Woods; on the importance of children’s and adults’ exposure to nature for their health, and on the need for environmental protection and preservation for greater access to nature and the health of the Earth. As a journalist and commentator, Louv has written for The New York Times, The Washington Post, the Times of London, Orion, Outside and other newspapers and magazines. He was a columnist for The San Diego Union-Tribune for 23 years and has also written for Parents magazine. In 2008, Louv was awarded the national Audubon Medal, given in recognition of outstanding achievement in the field of conservation and environmental protection. Louv has also been awarded the San Diego Zoological Society Conservation Medal; the Chicago Zoological Society’s George B. Rabb Conservation Medal; the International Making Cities Livable Jane Jacobs Award; and the Cox Award, Clemson University’s highest honor for “sustained achievement in public service.” Louv and his wife Kathy recently moved to Julian and enjoy using the library. Louv’s talk will be held at the Julian branch library, 1850 Highway 78, Julian. For more information, please contact the branch at 760-765-0370.

Prescribed Fire Burns Planned At Cuyamaca Rancho State Park The California Department of Parks and Recreation in cooperation with the California Department of Forestry and Fire protection (CAL FIRE) are planning a prescribed burn in Cuyamaca Rancho State Park between January 29, 2019 and March 15, 2019. The burn is in preparation for planting native seedlings as part of a Forest Health and Recovery project to restore the conifer forest in Cuyamaca Rancho State Park. In 2003, the Cedar Fire burned 95 percent of the park’s forest at such high intensity that the seed bank and cone producing forest canopy were destroyed. The prescribed burn will open up space to plant the seedlings. It will also reduce the fuels in the area so that a potential future wildfire will be less intense and the restored forest will have a better chance for survival. The prescribed burn is being planned and coordinated with the San Diego Air Pollution Control District in order to minimize the smoke impacts on surrounding communities. All burning depends on weather and air quality conditions that are favorable for smoke dispersal. If the conditions, such as weather or vegetation are not conducive for burning, the burn will be rescheduled. Some public trails near the burn area may be closed the day of the burn. People traveling near the fire burn areas may see smoke from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on the day of the burn. In the unlikely event continued on page 10

being disagreeable and mean spirited is never acceptable. After living in Julian for 84 years I have been robbed for the first time in my life. Growing up here where people did not lock doors or cars was a way of life. I am not that naive now. But to have someone, either a neighbor or a friend come onto my private property and steal our Yes On Measure A sign in less than 24 hours after it was put up is disheartening, disappointing and legally wrong. I am even more saddened because I am sure the person that did this was not a stranger or an out of towner. How do you feel about the integrity of such a person? What does it say about their character? I am fully backing Yes on Measure A because I believe it is in the best interest of our community. It is my right as a citizen and property owner to display on my private property a campaign sign backing Yes on Measure A. If you disagree it is your right to display your campaign sign. Please know that I will not come on to your property and steal your sign. Sincerely, Eileen Tellam

The new JCFPD Fire chief decided it would be a good idea to have a public meeting in the old unheated fire station at Lake Cuyamaca. A building that has no heat, no proper bathrooms, no proper exit signs, no operating overhead doors. No comfort at all for those attending. It makes you wonder if all there equipment works this well. Their auditor reported that the JCFPD is not sustainable. They surely would have fixed the heat in the building for the comfort of the occupants and their fire fighters. I want professional fire fighters with professional fire equipment that's why I am voting yes on measure A. Bud Binderim ICBO certified comercial building inspector ret.

“The Board’s Finance and Budget Committee has shown that JCFPD can continue to operate on existing taxes and benefit fees, just as it has for over 34 years.” This statement by Pat Landis in her rebuttal to the argument in favor of Measure “A” perfectly supports the reason everyone should vote YES FOR MEASURE A. First, this statement about JCFPD being able to operate on existing taxes is a complete contradiction to the independent auditor statement that “On November 6, 2018, Measure QQ to increase annual benefit fee did not get enough votes to pass. It raises substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a going concern without the additional revenue resources.” I will take the auditor’s statement completely at face value because it is independent and unbiased, whereas Landis is trying to sell us nonsense that might have meant something 34 years ago but is meaningless today. It is also a DIRECT contradiction to what Landis and Menghini wrote in their support for the increase in the benefit fee: “Over the past 34 years, the cost of vehicles, fuel, equipment, radios, computers, payroll and medical supplies has increased significantly. Thus, an increase in revenue is necessary to sustain operations, remain current with standards established by the National Fire Protection Association, and to raise the level of fire protection and medical services deserved by this community.” So Landis and Menghini, which is the truth? The most recent claim of not needing money in order to fight against Measure “A” or the last claim of having to have more money in order get people to vote for Measure “QQ.” This is almost as good as Kramer, as a director of the FirePlugs (while a director of JCFPD) asking that Supervisor Jacob not vote because she has a conflict of interest. LOL, really? Apparently none of you have no problem being on both sides and any argument and yet want us to believe you have ANY credibility? I am embarrassed for Julian that this is what floats around in the public domain from our “leadership.” This anti-dissolution crowd flip-flops on arguments, spins facts and simply makes stuff up in order to try and convince people to follow their lead. Second, “just as it has for 34 years” is also incorrect because there has been a LOT of money that has flowed to JCPFD from both CalFire and the County. With that bridge burnt, JCPFD will be left with the HOPE that they can get some grant money. And that HOPE does not look so promising when POTUS Trump is busy Tweeting that “Billions of dollars are sent to the State of California for Forrest fires that, with proper Forrest Management, would never happen. Unless they get their act together, which is unlikely, I have ordered FEMA to send no more money. It is a disgraceful situation in lives & money!” Third, relying on the “The Board’s Finance and Budget Committee” is pretty much the punch line to a sick joke as they can’t even put together and honest, realistic or accurate budget. The bottom line is that there has been, and continues to be, nothing

but wishful thinking that comes from the anti-dissolution crowd. Their arguments are illogical and unfounded with absolutely no basis in reality. Instead they try and play on the emotional and nonsensical. They have shown time and time again to be completely disingenuous in all of their rhetoric and have made it clear that they care not about anyone’s safety, but only about being able to continue in their roles of wanting to continue being big fish in a tiny pond.

Prevent CO Poisoning (NAPSI)—Each year, more than 400 people die from unintentional carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning and more than 20,000 visit the emergency room. CO poisoning can be prevented with a few precautions: What To Do • Never use portable electric generators, charcoal grills or other similar devices inside your home, garage or in any confined area that can let carbon monoxide collect. • Have your chimney, fireplace and woodstoves inspected before every heating season. • Turn off space heaters before leaving a room or going to sleep. • Never run your car engine for more than a few moments in a garage, even if the door to the outside is open. Fumes can build up quickly and can spread to the living area of your home. • Look for clues that home appliances may be malfunctioning. Common indicators include decreased hot water supply, soot on appliances, moisture inside windows, and furnaces not heating properly. • Install at least one carbon monoxide detector, connected to a monitoring center that operates 24/7, on every level of your home. Real protection comes from ADT—keeping your family safe from poisonous CO gas that can cause dizziness, unconsciousness and possibly death if undetected.

The County of San Diego Planning & Development Services (PDS) invites you to come learn about the Land Development Code Update. We want to hear from you! PDS is undertaking a comprehensive update of the Land Development Code (LDC or Code), which includes the County’s Zoning Ordinance. The purpose of the LDC Update is to help implement the General Plan and Community Plans, and to advance the County’s vision to be Healthy, Safe and Thriving. The LDC Update will also modernize the Code, which hasn’t been comprehensively updated since 1978. For more information about the project please go to: https://www.sandiegocounty. gov/content/sdc/pds/advance/ ldc.html As a first step, a series of workshops will be held throughout the County. The workshops will provide a forum to introduce the project and collect your thoughts on the current zoning regulations and processes. Details regarding the first meeting can be found below. We will send an update soon with information regarding additional workshops planned for locations in North County, East County, and South County. The first public meeting will be held: February 28, 2019 9:00 am-11:00 am County Operations Center 5520 Overland Ave, San Diego, CA 92123 *** What a world this will be when human possibilities are freed, when we discover each other, when the stranger is no longer the potential criminal and the certain inferior! — W.

Julian Arts Guild

This Months Workshop - Raku With Lynn Dee The Julian Arts Guild is sponsoring a FREE demonstration, "Why Raku" by Lynn Dee of Borrego Springs at the Julian library, 1850 Highway 78 on FEBRUARY 26, 2019 at 6:00 PM. Lynn received a degree in ceramics from San Jose State University. Later, she studied with Paul Soldner, the "father" of western raku. Lynn subsequently sold her hand thrown dinnerware in Alviso, CA and taught raku through community classes at Western Washington University and in public schools. About 5 years ago, Lynn purchased a home in Borrego Springs where she says "the desert has become my main inspiration." "Creating raku pottery and sculpture is my full time occupation these days; in my studio in Lumni Island, WA and in my new studio in Borrego Springs. Raku is especially suited to my way of working. Every raku firing is exciting and continues to stimulate my imagination." FREE REFRESHMENTS will be available and everyone is welcome to stimulate our own artistic imaginations no matter what art medium is preferred.

Women’s Club Photo Contest

Jeff Holt and Dana Pettersen recently helped to find photo winners for the Women’s Club of Julian. There were many fine entries winning 1st, 2nd, and 3rd places. Categories included color, black and white, nature photography, people and places. Bettie Bainbridge helps facilitate this local competition which involves other Women's Club entries from surrounding areas. The winners will go on to compete at the next level. photo by Jeff Holt

One of the goals of the General Federation of Women's Clubs is to support the arts. To encourage artistic expression among it's members Art Contests are held each year at the District, State and National levels. Awards are given in Fine Arts, Crafts, Photography and Writing The Julian Woman's Club is a member of the Palomar District which consists of 12 clubs in north San Diego County.. With it's wealth of professional artists Julian has been asked to judge the photography contest for the past several years. In the World in Pictures contest there are 6 categories and the District had 34 entries this year. The Best in Show winner in each category will be entered in the State contest and the State winners go on to the National competition.



This is what a NO vote on MEASURE “A” provides

4 A viable partnership between The County Fire Authority, Cal Fire and our own Volunteers. 4 Our trusted Volunteers can still be part of the program – All qualified Volunteers will be offered a position in the County Cal Fire run Julian Cuyamaca fire district. Those who cannot pass the medical exam will be offered less strenuous positions. No Julian Cuyamaca Volunteer will be required to work outside of our district. 4 A well-funded sustainable fire department – The County will spend $2.2 Million Annually providing Julian Cuyamaca with Fire/Emergency medical protection compared to the JCFPD’s annual budget of only $410,000. Three fire stations will be manned 365 days 24/7 under the County program. 4 No new taxes of Fees – Just the current $50 annual special assessment will be charged. The $50 annual fee to pay off the new fire station will be eliminated since the County will pay off the existing $1,200,000 Julian Fire Station mortgage. All other loans and encumbrances will be paid off by the County. 4 Proposition 218 guarantees that there can be no new tax or property related fees without a 2/3 vote of the people. The JCFPD (Volunteer Fire Department) has already been defeated twice in their proposals to raise our fire fees. 4 More resources and enhanced services – (1) All 3 Julian Cuyamaca area fire stations will be staffed 365 days 24/7 with firefighters and a paramedic fire engine. backing up the ambulance when it is out of the area. (2) Additional upgraded equipment will be provided including a water tender and a type V1 Patrol Vehicle. (3) We will have the support of all County fire resources which includes 18 fire stations with 150 full time firefighters. 4 All three Julian Cuyamaca Fire Stations will be designated as “Must Cover” which means that if our units are called away for more than 30 minutes then reinforcements will be sent in to cover our stations. The County will provide proven experienced management of our fire district. 4 Our 3 fire stations will not be closed seasonally or permanently – Much has been made of the temporary closing of the Ranchita Station after its takeover by the County. After remodeling and re-staffing, the Ranchita Station it was reopened on January 7, 2019 with new permanent full time staffing 365 days 24/7. 4 Cal Fire will be on Automatic Call – so anytime an alarm goes to the current Volunteer station, Cal Fire will automatically roll. Putting maximum resources at the scene.

• A financially troubled JCFPD Fire Department • The Current Julian Cuyamaca JCFPD program is headed towards insolvency and is not financially feasible or sustainable at current funding levels without subsidies. • There are significant doubts about the JCFPD Volunteer Fire Departments ability to survive – The JCFPD’s auditing firm wrote in its November 16, 2018 auditors report that that the failure of the JCFPD’s effort to raise the fire protection fee (Measure QQ on the November ballot) raises substantial doubt about their ability to continue without new additional sources of revenue. • JCFPD has been unable to provide the public with a 5-year budget that does not depend on donations/grants. • Our safety should not depend on donations to the JCFPD to be able to provide life savings services. • The JCFPD has a $1,200,000 Mortgage to pay off with a No Vote. A Yes Vote guarantees that the County will pay off the mortgage and all other outstanding bills and encumbrances. A WAY OUT OF THIS MESS. • A No Vote provides a lower level of service than the County Fire Authority can provide with its $2,200,000 budget. • The Cuyamaca Fire Station is not structurally sound, habitable or staffed 24/7. A Yes Vote will keep the Cal Fire Cuyamaca Fire Station open 365 days 24/7. A NO Vote will seasonally close the Cal Fire Cuyamaca Station. • A No Vote - gives local control but effective emergency service outweighs local control. • A No Vote - A reduction in 365-day 24/7 staffing guaranteed by Cal Fire with a Yes Vote. • A No Vote - Fire stations heavily manned with Reserves. We need to understand that there is a difference between Experienced Volunteers and Reserves. We are all proud of the fine young men and women who make up new Reserve Recruits, but they are not the solution. Generally speaking, the Reserves are looking for full time careers as paid firefighters elsewhere. A YES ON Measure “A” provides full time experienced paid firefighters at our stations 365 days 24/7. • A No Vote – Burdens our community, brave Volunteers and Reserves Firefighters with a financially burdened Fire District that is not feasible or sustainable. We shouldn’t have to depend on donations to keep our fire department operating.

The Mellow Downs

Julian Historical Society

Monthly presentations on the fourth Wednesday of the month The Historical Society Building 2133 4th Street


The Mellow Downs were created as a recording band. John Flynn and Mark Jackson who had worked on previous projects together wanted to write original blues songs and create an album as an art piece. Mark gathered together a heck of crew - The great “Bad Brad” Karow with a huge San Diego blues and American roots background going back 30+ years, on drums. Gary Hutcheson on bass. Gary has played tight and groovin bass in rock and blues bands in L.A. and San Diego for 40 years. The fantastic Tom Mann (a Southern California blues legend) playing many styles of blues and jazz piano as he has been doing for decades. Mark Jackson is the singer and harmonica player in this group and is a highly talented song writer, crooner, harmonica player and all around blues man. John Flynn, San Diego blues and roots guitar player who has been on the scene for 25+ years and for the first time has begun writing original songs. Together this band recorded over the last year at Camp Karow Studios. The album which was released in January of 2018, was recorded live with no overdubs or editing. The Camp Karow Studio captured a very natural

• On Feb. 24, 1836, Texan Col. William Travis sends a desperate plea for help when the Mexican army of 5,000 soldiers badly outnumber the several hundred defenders of the Alamo. His message ended with the famous last words, "Victory or Death." "Remember the Alamo" quickly became the rallying cry for the Texas revolution. • On Feb. 19, 1847, the first rescuers reach surviving members of the Donner Party, a group of California-bound emigrants stranded by snow in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Of the 89 original members of the Donner Party, only 45 reached California. • On Feb. 22, 1918, swept along by hysterical fears of German spies, the Montana legislature passes a Sedition Law that severely restricts freedom of speech and assembly. The law made it illegal to criticize the federal government or the armed forces during time of war.

• On Feb. 18, 1930, Pluto is discovered at the Lowell Observatory in Arizona by astronomer Clyde W. Tombaugh. He discovered the tiny, distant planet using a new astronomic technique of photographic plates combined with a blink microscope. • On Feb. 23, 1940, folksinger Woody Guthrie writes one of his best-known songs, "This Land is Your Land." Many of his songs reflected a strong commitment to the common working people. • On Feb. 20, 1986, France and Britain announce the Chunnel, a tunnel to be built under the English Channel. Construction began in late 1987 and the chunnel was finally completed in 1994. Attempts to dig a channel tunnel date back to 1883, and Napoleon drew blueprints for a tunnel in 1802. • On Feb. 21, 1994, CIA operative Aldrich Ames is arrested for selling secrets to the Soviet Union. At least 10 U.S. spies in Russia were killed after Ames revealed their identities, and more were sent to Russian gulags. © 2019 Hearst Communications, Inc. All Rights Reserved

Several Thoughts

by Kiki Skagen Munshi

Cowboys and Indians All right, it’s true confession time. The kid in the picture is this very columnist. On what is now Deer Lake Park Rd. in 1957. The horse is/was the best horse in the entire world even if the rope around his nose meant that we divided where we wanted to go about 50/50: Fifty percent of the time we went where we both wanted to go and fifty percent of the time we went where he wanted to go. But that isn’t the “true confessions” part. The confession is that we were in our “cowboy and Indian” mode and that much younger version of this columnist played the Indian. That’s because (a) I could ride Blaze with only a rope around his nose which Indians (we thought) did, and (b) riding bareback (which we also thought Indians did) meant I could get on the horse on the right side which action distinguished us “Indian” from them “cowboys”. There was only one attempt at “shooting” an imaginary bow and arrow under the horse’s neck for obvious and painful reasons. Fortunately, the horse stopped and stood while we slid off. Redface makeup? Well, no, Mother refusing to give up her rouge, but those of us (one or two) who were Indians in our games did war whoops. Or what we thought of as war whoops. And why is this a confession? Because it was an obvious, if unintended, parody of American Indians and it’s a good thing the only public office we run for is the Julian Community Planning Group. But wait, perhaps there is hope…the Cherokee heritage! Would being 1/32nd Cherokee make a difference? No, not DNA testing, actual family records of a Cherokee woman being bought — yes, bought — by a great great grandfather but eventually being married and becoming a great-great grandmother…On the other hands, it was the Plains Indians that rode around on horses controlling them with their knees (we tried that, too, but ‘control’ wasn’t a word Blaze had in his vocabulary) and not the Cherokees. Oh, dear. NO political future here! Do kids play cowboys and Indians these days? Probably not in which case the issue no longer arises and as for us, we couldn’t get on a horse bareback any more if you paid us, especially as H, H and B are all a good six inches taller than Blaze was. Not to mention that we are no longer thirteen… but it was fun, back then.

Second, if he had spoken to people who live Grading, Demolition, RAIL ROAD TIES near the border he would have heard that most drugs and criminals Underground Utilities, Dump come through the already existing ports of entry.

Recently, President Trump stated that El Paso Texas is one of the most crime ridden cities in the US. If he had talked with the mayor of El Paso he would have known that El Paso is one of the safest cities of its size in our country and has been for over 10 years. El Paso, Texas - Former El Paso Congressman Beto O'Rourke CALL BRUCE 619•972•0152 mulling a run for the presidency in 2020 - told MSNBC he would take down existing walls and border barriers already in place along the Southwestern border if he could.

I own a gift shop. I knew that as soon as the government shut down, my sales would decrease, and they did. I’m not complaining about the shutdown as much as I’m complaining about where all of the money is going that our government is spending. President Trump gave his wealthy friends a huge tax cut. We who are way down the financial line are not only getting tax cuts, but we are paying more. According to USA Today “Profits for online retail behemoth Amazon soared in 2018, but it paid no federal income tax for the second consecutive year, according to a report published Wednesday. The Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy says the company is subject to a 21 percent tax rate on its U.S. income. However, through various tax breaks and credits, the company will receive a tax rebate of $129 million. That's despite the company nearly doubling its profits to $11.2 billion in 2018, up from $5.6 billion the previous year, ITEP reported.” Maybe that’s fair, but when I hear on the radio about a family that normally gets a $5000.00 refund and got none this year, though they were counting on one this year to help pay for baby expenses, I think that’s just wrong.

disease, osteoarthritis, sleep apnea, respiratory problems, high cholesterol and uterine, breast, prostate and colon cancers. We also host or partner with other non-profits to provide a healthy meal to the attendees at community health events. We couldn’t put these on without the support of local vendors like FarmHouse Delivery, Truckin’ Tomato, HEB grocery stores and the donations of Dasani water and low-calorie or nocalorie drinks from our local Coca Cola distributor. FarmHouse Delivery gifted us with a treasure trove of their beautiful locally sourced fruits, herbs and vegetables. I was going through the donation boxes when I saw several lovely Fuji apples. They looked so delicious that I had to try one. The crisp crunch, explosion of sweet juices and the flavor of that apple brought back childhood memories. Fuji, Gala, Honeycrisp, Cripps Pink, Jonathan, Red Delicious and Golden Delicious apples are in season until May. High-quality apples are smooth-skinned, crisp, juicy and well-colored for their variety. Varieties that are not solid

red should have a yellow-green undertone, often called “ground color.” A ground color that is too green indicates a less sweet or under-ripe apple. Ground color that is too yellow identifies an apple that is overripe, soft and mealy textured. Avoid apples with bruises, soft spots or wrinkled skin. Handle apples gently to avoid bruising them. Apples will remain crisp and juicy longer if refrigerated. Keep apples in plastic bags with small air holes to maintain a high moisture level and delay withering. Apples are a dieter’s dream -- a medium apple is only about 80 calories! Apples also are a good source of fiber, especially if you eat the peel, and they contain only a trace of sodium and fat. APPLE TIPS: * Quick-peel apples for cooking by dipping them quickly in and out of boiling water. The skin will come off much more readily. * Apple butter cooked down on top of the range requires constant stirring to prevent scorching. No time to stir? Pour apple pulp mixture into a large roasting pan and bake in the oven at 300 F, stirring only continued on page 12

Her husband John was a free man of color and was afforded opportunities that Harriet didn’t have. Any children they may have had would have been slaves though and tied to Harriet’s owner. As a result of her head injury, Harriet became ill again in 1849 at which time her owner tried to sell her. She had experienced family being sold off in the past and resolved that, “There was one of two things I had a right to, liberty or death; if I could not have one, I would have the other." As it turned out, her owner died and his widow, while actively trying to sell her slaves, leased Harriet and two brothers to a plantation in a neighboring county. The opportunity was ripe for escape and on September 17, 1849 they ran. For whatever reason, probably within a few weeks, her brothers changed

their minds and went back to the plantation with Harriet in tow. It wasn’t long though that Harriet escaped again, this time alone, making it to Pennsylvania. Her first trip back to Maryland in December, 1850, was to rescue her niece and children who were to be sold at auction. Her niece’s free husband made the winning bid and spirited his family away while the auctioneer took a break. He hid the family till night and then canoed them all the way to Baltimore where they met Harriet who aided their escape north on the railroad. By spring she made her second trip and rescued a brother and others. By this time the Fugitive Slave Act was in effect and the arduous trips became tougher because often times they were going all the way to Canada. Harriet made many trips to help family members including her

The Underground Railroad that transported escaped slaves developed in America shortly after the 18th century began. The terminology of the “railroad” developed as railroads themselves were spreading across America. Escape from slavery was dangerous particularly considering the huge distances a slave would have to travel to reach a “free” state. The first contact a slave would meet on the railroad was the “conductor” who would lead the slave to a “station” or “depot” that was a home, warehouse or farm whose owner was referred to as a “station master”. The series of stations that crisscrossed the south and into the north were generally ten to twenty miles apart. Travel between stations was treacherous and was only done at night after a message was sent to the next station that “passengers” or “cargo” were on the way. The stations afforded escapees rest, food and changes of clothing as the rags the slaves wore were a sure tip-off of an escapee. The ones that provided money for the food and clothing were referred to as “stockholders.” At times a conductor would infiltrate a plantation to lead the passengers away but slaves were pretty much on their own to escape. The frightful experience of escaping was difficult as entire communities, overseers, dogs and local militias would participate in the capture. The penalties were severe and the only reason more slaves weren’t killed after capture and punishment, was because they represented a valuable commodity to their owners. A conductor’s fate was almost always death if captured. There were other terms that were common to the Underground Railroad. There was religious significance to the big dipper whose handle pointed to the north star used for guidance at night. It was called the “drinking gourd.” The Ohio river, which when crossed offered a measure of safety as slaves moved into a free state, was called the “ River Jordan.” The slave states were called “Egypt” and Canada was called the “Promised Land” because it banned slavery in 1834, and offered the ultimate safety after the Fugitive Slave Act was passed in 1850. The Act required even free states to return slaves to their masters. The penalties for abetting a slave’s escape were severe including a $1,000.00 fine and 6 months in prison. Being caught in the South offered no guarantee of the protection of the courts. Nonetheless, thousands of people participated in the Railroad and particularly the Quakers. What is amazing is the bravery and the philosophical and religious commitment of those in slave states that offered succor to the passengers and conductors. One of the conductors on the railroad and a staunch abolitionist was an unlikely woman named Harriet Tubman. She was born Araminta Ross (Minty) in Maryland on the eastern shore sometime around 1822. She was a slave and suffered whippings beginning as a child. She was also inadvertently wounded in the head by a heavy metal object thrown by an angry overseer at another slave. She suffered pain, seizure disorders and visions that she interpreted as messages from God for the rest of her life. Araminta, took her mother’s name Harriet after her marriage to John Tubman in 1844. The name change may have resulted from her plans to escape slavery and achieve some anonymity.

her former home on Maryland’s Eastern Shore. She rescued over 70 slaves including family and friends and advised hundreds of others in their escape to freedom. She came in winter when people were in their homes early and the nights were long. She and her passengers left on Saturdays because papers with escape or reward notices weren’t published till Monday. She always carried a revolver. In all her journeys Tubman never lost a passenger on the railroad, “I never ran my train off the track and I never lost a passenger." In 1859 Senator William Seward of New York sold Harriet a piece of land near his home in Auburn, NY and Auburn became her permanent home. When the Civil War broke out she became a scout, guide, spy, nurse, cook and liaison between liberated slaves and the Union Army.

Later in life she worked for the suffragette movement. In 1899 President William McKinley signed a bill allowing Harriet Tubman a pension for her work during the Civil War.

Harriet Tubman died in 1913. Born into slavery, she met or worked with the likes of Frederick Douglass, Susan B. Anthony, Sarah Hopkins Bradford, John Brown, numerous Union Generals and officers including Col. Robert Gould Shaw who led the Black 54th Mass. Regiment at the battle of Fort Wagner (the movie Glory), as well as Senators and Congressmen. She was named Moses by prominent abolitionist William Lloyd Garrison. In 2016 the treasury announced that Harriet Tubman will be on the face of the $20 bill due out in the mid 2020s.

Valentine’s Cards

Valentine's Day in school in the 1940s and 1950s meant a celebration with cards delivered to a student's desk or a decorated box on the teacher's desk. Sweet treats -- especially the small, hard candy hearts printed with special messages -- also were popular. Like today, there were concerns that some students would not get many, or receive cards that are unkind, or none at all. So, stores sold packages of valentines, enough for a class. A popular brand found at the dime store offered a box of "25 Valentine cutouts, all different, One for Teacher, 29c all with envelopes."

This 1950s cutout card picturing a cup and saucer and the message “We belong together” sold last year for 50 cents. Handwritten Valentine notes were used in America by the 1740s. In the 1840s, fancy envelopes with paper lace and cut out pictures were made and sold in Massachusetts by Esther Howland. In the 1890s, clever mechanical cards with moving parts were popular. From 1900 to the 1920s, postcards were favored. Today, the 1950s die-cut Valentines sell for less than a dollar to $15. Older,

lacy cards can sell from $20 to $100. There are two clubs and shows with information: the National Valentine Collectors Association and the Greeting Card Association. *** Q: My mother saved "soakies," the plastic bottle that held shampoo or bubble bath about 25 years ago. They were shaped like bottles with people or animal heads. She bought them to use the soap and thought they would later become popular collectibles, like milk bottles. Where are they being sold? A: Soakies were popular as collectibles for a very short period of time in the late 1990s, and a few rare ones did sell for about $100. But the bottles were free and there still are a few used as packaging. Price is determined by supply and demand. There is a big supply and almost no demand. It is a suggested hobby that often doesn't attract collectors.

Glass milk bottles were not popular with bottle collectors until the rarer earlier bottles became very expensive. Today a colored milk bottle or one with a war slogan or famous dairy name are the only ones selling for more than a few dollars. Collectors also search for the old round cardboard bottle caps, which sell for 25 cents to a few dollars each to go with the bottles. *** CURRENT PRICES Current prices are recorded from antiques shows, flea markets, sales and auctions throughout the United States. Prices vary in different locations because of local economic conditions. Folk art, whimsy, woman, on horse, red shirt, green skirt, articulated, c. 1900, 9 x 8 1/4 inches, $60. McKee glass, berry bowl, dragon, 1 x 4 inches, $110. Advertising sign, half horse, half dolphin, horse's head,

dolphin tail, sheet metal, white, red, black, 28 x 32 inches, $350. Grooming kit, men's travel set, sterling silver, Gillette razor, brush, soap box, shaving brush and toothbrush holder, W. Kerr, c. 1900, $895. *** TIP: Aluminum chairs and other brushed aluminum from the 1950s can be cleaned with a silver polishing paste or a metal cleaner.

® Dear EarthTalk: I’ve heard about “Zero Waste” grocery stores in Europe where everything is sold in bulk and customers bring and fill up their own reusable containers and bags. When will we get some of these here on this “side of the pond”? -- Jane Smith, Boston, MA Many mainstream American grocery stores and chains now have bulk sections for dried foods like nuts and spices, though most everything else still comes sealed in plastic, cardboard, aluminum or glass, which customers then recycle or discard once they devour the contents. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that containers and packaging make up almost a quarter of all landfill waste, with the average American generating four pounds of trash a day, most of it food-related. Furthermore, Americans throw out about a third of the food we buy, largely because we’re forced to buy more than we need due to the way food is prepackaged for sale. One solution to both of these problems is the “zero-waste” grocery store which sells in bulk (or “loose”) to customers who bring their own containers and shopping bags and fill them up with just the amount of food they will eat. Besides the obvious environmental benefits of reducing the stream of waste to landfills and energy-intensive recycling processors, zerowaste grocery stores also tend to be easier on the wallet—given that packaging adds upwards of 40 percent to the cost of many everyday food items. Zero-waste food stores began turning up in Europe in just the last 15 years. The success of stores like Germany’s Original Unverpackt, France’s Day By Day, Denmark’s LØS Market and the UK’s Bulk Market and Earth.Food.Love shows a strong proclivity, at least in Europe, for a green grocery experience. Zero waste markets are a harder sell in the U.S., but that hasn’t stopped a few entrepreneurs from trying. The nation’s first zero waste grocery store, In.gredients in Austin, Texas, opened with fanfare in 2012 but had trouble competing with a nearby traditional grocery

store—and finally shut its doors for good in April 2018. “We realized...we weren't changing shoppers’ habits,” Erica Howard Cormier, In.gredients’ former GM, told CNBC. “You have to plan a lot to go to the grocery store with your own containers, and people would go to the store across the street because they forgot their container.” Nevertheless, others have ventured forth undaunted. Some of the biggest are Precycle and the Filling Station in New York City, Dill Pickle Co-op in Chicago, Simply Bulk Market and Zero Market in Colorado, the Refill Shoppe near Los Angeles, People’s Food Co-op in Portland, OR and Central Co-op in Seattle. And in Vancouver, BC is Nada, one of the biggest and most successful zero waste markets in the world. The store claims to have diverted some 30,500 containers from landfills since opening in 2014.

Take Ashley McBryde. Long before she was a GRAMMYnominated artist for her album “Girl Going Nowhere,” she was learning her craft in the clubs and bars of Memphis—and with a Wednesday-night volunteer gig at Target House, a housing facility for families at St. Jude. Last year, she was back in Memphis for the Country Cares seminar, an annual gathering of artists and radio personnel. She toured the hospital for the first time, and later talked about why she supports St. Jude: “If you have a soapbox, and you don’t use it in a way that helps other people, then you don’t deserve a soapbox.” Now, hundreds of radio stations, other country stars such as Kacey Musgraves, Kelsea Ballerini, the Brothers Osborne and Chris Stapleton, and millions of fans all rally around St. Jude, because despite great advances in treatment, children still die from cancer. Four of five survive in the United States, which means we’ve come remarkably far but aren’t there yet. The situation is far worse in low- and middle-income countries around the world, where only one in five survives. That’s why St. Jude launched the St. Jude Global initiative and is col-laborating with the World Health Organization, to reach more of the world’s sickest children. • Mr. Shadyac is president and CEO of ALSAC, the fundraising and awareness organization for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

Service members can get critical services delivered with a caring touch all around the world. (NAPSI)—The Department of Defense reports that 1.3 million Americans serve in the military. If you or someone you care about is ever among them and sent overseas, you may be glad to learn about an organization that’s been assisting members of the U.S. armed forces, veterans and their families since the early 1900s: the American Red Cross. It provides emergency communication services, resiliency programs and morale activities. “We are committed to delivering critical services with a caring touch wherever and whenever they’re needed—24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year—for military members and their families at home and around the world,” said Koby Langley, senior vice president for Service to the Armed Forces at the Red Cross. Now, the organization is expanding support for U.S. military personnel in Eastern Europe with a new office in Romania. In addition to aiding military members and their families, the American Red Cross shelters, feeds and provides emotional support to disaster victims; supplies about 40 percent of the nation’s blood; teaches lifesaving skills; and provides humanitarian aid. A not-forprofit organization, it depends on volunteers and the generosity of the American public.

California Commentary

Defending Direct Democracy, Defending Taxpayers

by Jon Coupal

The powers of direct democracy — initiative, referendum and recall — are powerful tools to control slow-moving or corrupt politicians. These powers are enshrined in the California Constitution for reasons that are just as compelling in 2019 as they were in 1911 when Gov. Hiram Johnson, seeking to suppress the absolute control the railroads had over the state Capitol, pushed to give ordinary citizens a “legislative battering ram” — using the language of the Supreme Court — to address issues that for whatever reason the Legislature refuses to address. Political elites hate the initiative process. From their perspective it allows the great unwashed and unsophisticated to deal with matters such as taxation, victims’ rights, insurance and most importantly political reform. These are issues over which politicians strongly desire to exercise a legislative monopoly. Like any political process, however, direct democracy can be abused. Some matters are indeed complicated and not well suited to a sound-bite campaign. Also, special interests with a lot of money can overwhelm the airwaves with TV and radio ads to convince a majority of voters (especially in a low-turnout election) to pass something they might later regret. Nonetheless, for taxpayers, direct democracy remains one of the few tools we have to protect ourselves. Landmark initiative measures such as Propositions 13 and 218 have given taxpayers the kind of protection against greedy government entities that we would never have obtained but for rights granted through direct democracy. But taxpayers must do more than propose initiatives and convince voters to enact them. We must also defend them in court against never-ending assaults. For years, the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association has maintained a potent litigation capacity with three full-time lawyers and access to dozens

more willing to defend not just taxpayer-sponsored initiatives but the very power of direct democracy itself. And so it is that HJTA finds itself back before the California Supreme Court on an important direct democracy case. The high court just granted review in a case where Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association represents the taxpayers. In Wilde v. City of Dunsmuir, the court must decide whether local voters, using their referendum power, can force a water rate increase onto the ballot for their approval or rejection. California is one of 23 states whose constitution grants voters the power to referend statutes and ordinances. A referendum is a proposal to repeal a law that was enacted by the Legislature, a city council or a county board of supervisors before it goes into effect. It is placed on the ballot by a citizen petition. Ratepayers in the city of Dunsmuir collected enough signatures on a petition to qualify a referendum to approve or reject a water rate increase. The city refused to place the referendum on the ballot, arguing that the referendum power does not apply to taxes and that water rates are a form of taxation. It also asserted that Proposition 218, which reinforced the voters’ right to repeal or reduce fees using the initiative power, somehow implied an exclusion of the referendum power as a means of affecting fees. Not surprisingly, the lower court rejected these arguments and ruled in favor of taxpayers, ordering the city to call an election on the ratepayers’ referendum. Now that the case is before California’s highest court, HJTA is hopeful that the ultimate decision stays consistent with established precedent recognizing that the powers of direct democracy are a “precious right.” *** Jon Coupal is the president of Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association.

continued from page 2 and lead everyone off the side of the cliff. We are not Lemmings! Vote YES FOR MEASURE “A.” A non-Lemming, Tim Taschler

The Dog And Pony Show In the 1939 fantasy film ‘Wizard of Oz’ four characters become memorable because they are all seeking something: a brain, a heart, some courage, to go home. Along with Dorothy, who is lost, they follow the yellow brick road to the Emerald City to meet the wizard. The wizard, a conman who believes he can solve everything, promises their wishes provided the naïve little group brings him the broom of the Wicked Witch of the West. They run into many threatening situations along the way to find OZ. The story is analogous to the community of Julian. In fact, more than that, it is the story and those characters have been highly visible around town. In the end the group discovers that the wizard is a fake, all show and no go. Reality has a way of teaching lessons. We can avoid much pain by pulling back the curtain and exposing those who are manipulating the strings on the puppets and why. Most respectable National media are slowly building trust again within the citizenry by pulling back the curtain. We must do the same here locally because the real implication of irresponsible rhetoric is going to cost more than the yellow brick road. Recent town meetings were designed to smooth over the road and concerns regarding the viability of the JCFPD. The true nature of the JCFPD was never revealed. No status reports for financial assessment, budget or future funding sources revealed. It was nauseating and laughable for those not seeking a brain, courage or a heart. Fiction: Foundation Grants are readily available and easy to get. Fact: The JCFPD has lost many grant applications. They are not easy to get and they only cover equipment not operations. Fiction: Cal Fire backups via mutual aid the JCFPD and will be available 24/7, 365 days/year. Fact: Cal Fire is the State Fire Department. In San Diego County Chief Tony Mechum wears two hats: Cal Fire Chief and Chief of the SDCFA. The location of firefighters and equipment is seasonal. Cal Fire’s mission is to fight brush fires. Cal Fire along with the SDCFA have located units in the Julian-Cuyamaca area under special agreement with the JCFPD, to bring in the County-wide fire support system and cover for the defunct JCFPD. Chief Mechum makes the decisions. Should Measure ‘A’ be voted down Cal Fire reverts to its seasonal mission. Cal Fire is not the back up for JCFPD. Out goes the equipment, 24/7 personnel and the paramedic fire engine, relocated in other areas were needed. Fiction: The fire insurance rating system called ISO is not really very important to Fire Insurance Companies when determining whether or not to insure your property. Fact: From the Insurance services Office: “Your area's ISO fire score is a rating that determines how well your local fire department can protect your community and home. Insurance companies use the score to help set home insurance rates.” “The more well-equipped your fire department is to put out a fire, the less likely your house is to burn down. And that makes your home less risky, and therefore less expensive, to insure.” The ISO rating is “50% of your total score. 40% comes from availability of water supply, including the prevalence of fire hydrants and how much water is available for putting out fires. You can check this out on the web. Our community is currently rated at ‘9’ due to the poor quality of the JCFPD. It will go to a ‘3’ if Measure ‘A’ is approved. The worst score is ‘10’. The local fire chief cannot influence the rating. The ratings are done by an independent organization. If we want a better rating, then we

must build a better fire protection system and put in a fire plug at your home. Approval of Measure ‘A’ will fix our fire protection system. Fiction: No problem with obtaining fire Insurance. Fact: A number of residents in the area have recently been notified that their insurance will not be renewed. In some cases the insurance company has cited the volunteer fire district, JCFPD, as the reason including some of the volunteers, in their investigation, unqualified for various reasons. Fiction: The JCFPD fire equipment is just fine, all is well. Fact: Not true. One fire truck is 5+years old but has been in the shop several times. Fire trucks are special ordered. Unique gear and parts must be built or be special ordered if the original company is in business (and this one is not). One ambulance was purchased from Borrego, not too old, and was in good shape several years ago. The "new" ambulance is a new truck with the old box mounted on it. The backup ambulance is not in use because JCFPD cannot afford to place it in operation or the paramedics required to operate it. Not all equipment is functioning and only one ambulance has a crew under contract due to expire 1 July. The updated breathing apparatus was recently given to JCFPD by the Lakeside Fire District. It's good for a year at best. The defibrillator equipment is not approved by OSHA. Fiction: There are 24 new volunteer recruits ready to ‘go’ and 40 firefighters or is it 60, all highly trained. Fact: Only four of new reserve (not volunteers) trainees are local and they are not ready yet to fight a fire. When they finish their training, then maybe, if still here, they could assist an experienced crew. Everyone is apparently wondering where those 4060 highly-trained people are. Mr. Van Bibbler admitted that actually there were only 12 real firefighters. They could not staff the station 24/7/365 since many have fulltime jobs elsewhere. Fiction: The JCFPD fire crew can get out the door in 3-minutes and they only need two people managing the truck. Fact: If the whole crew including a licensed fire truck driver is at the fire station, gear ready and near a functioning truck, the 3-minute mark is possible. That criterion is almost impossible for a volunteer fire unit and can only occur under rare situations as described. Managing a fire truck under most conditions requires a 3-person crew at minimum: a licensed driver who must oversee the pumping equipment at the fire site, one to hold the hose and direct the water stream and one to pull the hose out as they move around the fire. Due to budget restraints some communities have reduced the truck crew to two people, but then they have more functioning fire trucks. “In many emergencies, this is simply not enough to rescue your family or quickly extinguish a fire. The national standard, set by the NFPA for public safety, is a minimum of FOUR firefighters.” (reference Inside Science and the Standard). Fiction: The County of San Diego speaks with forked tongue and misleads us on taxes, fire safety and promises. Fact: The SDCFA has spent millions building new fire stations, staffing them and locating paramedic fire units county-wide since the SDCFA was established in 2007. Objective visits to other districts who joined the SDCFA found the County has fulfilled their promises and businesses are pleased, especially realtors. No new taxes or fees have been levied. Fiction: The County is pulling a hostile takeover of Julian’s assets to cover their deficits. Facts: The JCFPD is basically broke. It has no reliable revenue stream (except a small % of property taxes) and is in debt. JCFPD owes 1.2 million on the fire station. Their assets are mostly liabilities. The County is flush with cash and has the money earmarked to pay off Julian’s fire station loan immediately. They have the funds and equipment to provide the fire district fire protection 24/7/365.

The SDCFA is presently in Julian under agreement. Fiction: The unpaid Volunteers will be discarded. Fact: The exact opposite is true. Any willing person meeting the medical and vetting process will be trained by the County and placed in reserve units for call up duty when required. And they get paid when working. This fact has been stated publicly many times by County officials. There is a long and documented history to verify this fact throughout California and the Nation. The issues solved by Measure “A” is the local concern for a better fire protection system, not a takeover bid, disbanding of reserves or ownership. Please vote for Better fire protection for your community: YES ON MEASURE ‘A’. I. G. Wieslander Pine Hills

Burning Bridges And Legacies The other night we were watching a rerun of the TV drama ‘Major Crimes.’ We love the characters. The story about a mystery death was presented in a humorous manner involving a group of old retired folks. They acted upon an opportunity to resolve a real threat to their livelihood. The ‘victim’, and there is always at least one, was found dead in what appeared to be a suicide. Of course there were other clues, one of them an apparent delay calling 911 by the ‘old folks.’ Interviews of witnesses revealed that no one had anything nice to say about the ‘victim’. He was not a sympathetic character. He left no legacy but that of distain. Can you imagine passing on and no one cares, and those that knew you are actually happy that you’re dead? The TV drama victim had a history of destructive, bad decisions and behavior. People around him were harmed by him and they hated him. That is called motive. The 911 delay was a clue in the TV crime drama, mysterious enough to generate more interest. It did not however, harm anyone. But what if the delay had actually caused harm, or the response to it? It would have been disastrous for the ‘older characters’ in the drama and the victim. A 911 failure like the one in Paradise, Ca. compounded that disaster. The 911 system costs money to use, and can be interupted due to ineptitude or lack of funds. Suppose the emergency mechanisms or policies are inherently defective and unreliable, not up to standard? Those conditions would have been an interesting TV story too. Imagine our community an isolated island, considered for its self-determination and attitude such that no one responds, a place where not enough goodwill is banked with the right authorities to obtain assistance when needed? No outside help comes when you need it because that is what you voted for and you hate the agencies that provide the system. This reality occurs when you have burned your political bridges, destroyed friendships and associations. That’s a legacy worth fearing because it affects many who have encountered or played a role in that history. In many cases the pile of destructiveness left behind can never be corrected, the harm everlasting. Do you think spreading unsubstantiated falsehoods against Cal Fire and the SDCFA will just vanish? The professionals rise above it, but politicians will not. It becomes our legacy, a lasting history forever. These falsehoods cause real harm, used as a means-to-an-end for a few in our community, but actually causing a long-lasting, irreversible harm to a community. With Automatic Aid, a 911 call starts a county-wide response. Another system called Mutual Aid requires reciprocal aid or it does not work. The JCFPD has an uncooperative history when it comes to Mutual Aid and we would lose Automatic Aid if we make the wrong choice on the Ballot Measure ‘A’. Think about the failures in Northern California: old, unsafe power

and communications equipment, no organized County-wide support in place, 911 warnings not received, etc. Apply those lessons learned to our JulianCuyamaca community. We are fortunate in San Diego County. San Diego County Fire Authority has a high-tech Command Center serving the whole County supported by integrated input from the County-wide SDG&E, infrared, weather and temperature system, the SanGIS system and GPI. All systems are in constant update and improvement. That is the way a community should work, as a integrated, cooperative social system working toward the betterment of the people. Do you still want to be under ‘local’ control’, separate from the County support systems? Does becoming a member of a greater community of resources and a mutual aid community sound inviting? It is your choice? Does leaving a lasting, safe environment for your family and friends sound like a legacy worth supporting? Having reliable, wise people as friends (or in high places) who look after our best interests sounds like a good start. PLEASE VOTE YES ON MEASURE ‘A’ Good for the Community, good for our kids and neighbors. Calle-Ernst Änglund Pine Hills

What Every Frequent Flier Should Know

Editors Note: we are reprinting the following because of the numerous typo’s which appeared in last weeks version, due to a conversion issue with the software. Independence Verses Consolidation I have been trying to understand why an independent fire station is better than one associated with a large entity drawing from the entire Counties resources. Independence means not having to answer to a “down the hill” bureaucracy. Independence also means not being able to draw on all the resources of the County with their Cal-Fire connections. Independence means that if all our units are busy with a fire and/ or accident and we have another event, or need more man power than what we have, we would have no one to call as other departments are not able to help an independent agency with no reciprocal agreement. Independent Fire Department rings right up there with apple pie, custom, habit and tradition. It also means not going the 21st century and availing ourselves of a proven concept of strength in numbers. Independence means having to convince insurance companies that our fire department is equal or better than the resources of the large County fire agency, and that we should not have rates increased or insurance cancelled. We were told a year ago that a $150.00/year tax increase was necessary for the volunteers to function independently. Now were are told that with no increase the J.C.F.P.D. is in the financial black and all deferred expenses have been resolved. Apparently some fund raising breakfasts and some grant applications together with the $50.00 yearly tax is sufficient to run an independent fire station. The County can only offer guaranteed funding, a rollback of the existing fire taxes and the resolution of existing debts. Independence must also mean that the somewhat transient volunteers will be much more prone to finding our homes than the County Cal-Fire personnel, many who have been in the area even longer than a lot of the volunteers. In closing, if it it could be proven to me that a continuation of the independent lead volunteer agency would be a far better thing, and not a trip down the rabbit hole, I would entertain revising my opinion. After studying the actual pros and cons without the emotional rhetoric I now feel that it would be remiss of me to vote anything but YES on measure A and see our local fire and ambulance services enter a time of increased protection for the long term benefit of our community. Sincerely, Bob Redding

(StatePoint) At any given time, up to 5,000 aircraft are in American skies. Ten million passenger flights took place in 2016. The “Golden Age” of air travel may feel like it’s long gone in a time of heightened security and since the advent of mass affordable flight, but experts say that consumers can expect flying to be more comfortable and convenient in the coming years -- even when you’re riding coach. “To survive and thrive, airlines are focused on product innovations and comfort upgrades to ensure repeat business from customers,” says Jennifer Coutts Clay, who has over 40 years of experience in the operational management and marketing of airlines, including time with British Airways and Pan Am. She is the author of “Jetliner Cabins: Evolution and Innovation,” a new eBook app featuring a historical record and futuristic look at the commercial flying experience, with over 6,000 images and interviews with airline experts. Are you a frequent flier? Clay says these trends may be headed your way: • Better seating: Ergonomically constructed seat-frames, climatecontrolled seat-cover fabrics and lumbar-supporting contoured seatfoam inserts are just a few of the cabin upgrades being made to ensure more comfortable travel. • Mood lighting: Passengers are given more freedom to control their immediate surroundings through lighting. Thanks to developments in LED technology, many airlines are phasing out cold-looking lighting installations to feature a rainbow range of colors customized to suit the time of day, the specific area of the aircraft or to simulate the soothing gradual process of sunrise and sunset. • Connectivity: In-flight entertainment, streaming content options and connectivity are expanding as onboard Wi-Fi becomes faster and cheaper. In-seat power supplies will keep mobile devices running during long flights, giving passengers opportunities to work, keep in touch with those on the ground and more. • More accessibility: Airlines are making air travel more accessible to those with special needs. Recent advances include aisle-size wheelchairs, seat-armrests that can be raised, extra grab bars and handrails, in-flight literature in braille, special meals for an increased range of dietary restrictions, privacy curtains for use around lavatory doors and baby-changing facilities. • Improved experience: Flights are getting longer and more crowded. In response, airlines are aiming to tackle the problems of stressedout passengers, with more personalization, humanization and options for how time can be used onboard, including opportunities to move around the aircraft. • Luxury amenities: In first-class cabins of the “gold-standard” airlines, the luxury-level accommodations, amenities and in-flight service standards keep getting better. Passengers can rely on concierge-type support to handle personal arrangements before, during and after flights, and there is limo service for ground transfers to and from airports. In the future, passengers might be able to expect onboard salon-style spas and even gyms if they are willing to pay a premium. More about the air travel experience is available by downloading Clay's app at The website also offers free videos where users can explore everything from new developments in plane cabins to behind-the-scenes glimpses into how cabin maintenance is performed in the modern age. “Preparing jetliners to accommodate airline passengers is both an art and a science,” she says. “As passenger expectations evolve and grow, you can expect significant improvements in cabin comfort and hospitality standards." *** Read some good, heavy, serious books just for discipline: Take yourself in hand and master yourself. — W.

LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Unless you have sound knowledge, and not just an opinion, it's best not to step into a family dispute involving a legal matter, regardless of whom you support. Leave that to the lawyers. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) An awkward situation presents the usually socially savvy Scorpian with a problem. But a courteous and considerate approach soon helps clear the air and ease communication. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) A calmer, lesstense atmosphere prevails through much of the week, allowing you to restore your energy levels before tackling a new challenge coming up by week's end. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Your approach to helping with a friend or family member's problem could boomerang unless you take time to explain your method and how and why it (usually!) works. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Someone who gave you a lot of grief might ask for a chance for the two of you to make a fresh start. You need to weigh the sincerity of the request carefully before giving your answer. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Too much fantasizing about an upcoming decision could affect your judgment. Better to make your choices based on what you know now rather than on what you might learn later. BORN THIS WEEK: You have a way of seeing the best in people and helping them live up to their potential.

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Some unsettling facts about a past situation could come to light. And while you'd love to deal with it immediately, it's best to get more information to support your case. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) A straightforward approach to a baffling situation is best. Don't allow yourself to be drawn into an already messy mass of tangles and lies. Deal with it and move on. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Don't be discouraged or deterred by a colleague's negative opinion about your ideas. It could actually prove to be helpful when you get around to finalizing your plan. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Ignore that sudden attack of "modesty," and step up to claim the credit you've so rightly earned. Remember: A lot of people are proud of you and want to share in your achievement. LEO (July 23 to August 22) A financial "deal" that seems to be just right for you Leos and Leonas could be grounded more in gossamer than substance. Get an expert's advice to help you check it out. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Don't ignore that suddenly cool or even rude attitude from someone close to you. Asking for an explanation could reveal a misunderstanding you were completely unaware of.
