Power Up: County Offers Electric Car Charging Station Permits Online by Gig Conaughton, County of San Diego Communications Office
February seems to sneak in and warm us up in Julian. Apricots are showing, plums are exploded with blossoms and you may have noticed your daffodils are jumping up. Julian’s Daffodil Show will be this Saturday March 23 and Sunday March 24, Noon to Five pm.. We need you to search through your yard for the best blooms: no dirt (use a soft brush to remove), no tears, long stems and proud balanced daffodils.. If you want entry cards early to fill out prior to Friday, March 22, please pick them up at the Library. Sharpies can mark stems with their daffodil names, if you know them. Donations of all other blooms are gladly accepted to raise funds for the show. The buds need to have some color on the tips if you expect them to open. Place them in a vase of water in your refrigerator or a cool dark place. The day or two before March 22, bring them to the light; a windowsill or bright table. Since the nation has noticed this small town show, we all need to bring your best two to thirty stems.

San Diego County Planning & Development Services customers can now get a permit to build a home charging station for their electric car without wasting a volt driving to a County office. County customers in unincorporated areas can still get electric vehicle charging station permits the same day by driving to a County office. However, they can now also get them online, just as they can with several other types of County permits, including solar roof systems, water heater replacements, heating/air conditioning duct replacements, gas line repairs, electric service upgrades and more. The department added the electric vehicle charging station permits as part of its continuing effort to support sustainability and to make the County’s permitting and planning process easier and more convenient for customers in the unincorporated communities. Planning & Development Services reports that it issued 61 permits for electric vehicle charging stations in fiscal year 2017-18, which ran from July 1, 2017 to June 30, 2018. However, that number is five times the 11 electric vehicle charging station permits it issued just four years ago in the 2013-14 fiscal year. And permit requests are expected to increase. The percentage that electric vehicles made up of total car sales in California rose to 4.7 percent in 2018, up from 2.6 percent in 2017, according to the California New Car Dealers Association. Nationwide, electric vehicle sales jumped by 80 percent in 2018, from 199,826 vehicles in 2017 to 361,307 last year, according to InsideEVs. PDS officials said electric vehicle charging station building permits will include inspections by County building inspectors to make sure they’re installed properly and meet building safety codes. Customers can find detailed explanations for how to use all of PDS’ online services, including submitting a building permit application for an electric vehicle charging station at the department’s Accela Updates<https://www. s a n d i e g o c o u n t y. g o v / p d s / AccelaUpdates.html> link. Some of the department’s other online services include: Submitting applications for residential building permits online for items such as residential solar panel systems, electric heat pump/AC repair or replacement, gas line repair, window replacement, and water sprinklers. Looking up property records and information, such as building permits for property improvements, boundary lines, zoning classifications, etc. Estimating how much projects will cost. Checking to see what the “real time” wait times are for business counters at the PDS offices.

Time To Take Down The Signs And Take Our Medicine The fight over the JulianCuyamaca Fire Protection District(JCFPD) is over, the ballots are in and the preliminary outcome was announced Tuesday night (too late for publication, check facebook, twitter or ask a neighbor). Which ever way the vote turns out things will change for all residents and depending on who you believe - not for the better, at least for those who voted the other way. Or so it is perceived. The question most asked is what will happen and when, once all has been settled? First, the voters decision is final. LAFCO is counting on the certification before their April 8 regular meeting. They have requested a meeting between the JCFPD and County representatives for Thursday, April 9. According to LAFCO Executive Officer Keene Simonds letter the meeting will be “to discuss the election results and its distinct outcome possibilities therein. This latter comment includes discussing the implementation of a transition plan should the reorganization be approved versus the mechanics of Julian-Cuyamaca FPD assuming all fire protection services going forward should its current support services agreement with County Fire terminate.” The time and location have yet to be determined. Depending on the outcome either there will be a transition period. At that time all JCFPD assets and liabilities are legally transferred to the County via County Service Area No. 135. Or JCFPD will be independent and any agreements would have to be ratified to move forward. The reality is we won’t know what will transpire for at least a month, (until after the April 9 meeting) all services as currently operating should remain in place. How the community reacts is another matter. Both sides have invested heavily, both financially and emotionally, in their positions. The next step will be to come together to support whatever the voters have decided - even if only by one vote. The folks supporting the volunteers have stressed the years of service by JCFPD, there is no reason that their service could not continue. Albeit in a new capacity. If JCFPD is to be a stand alone district then we will return to what was the norm back in the day, with CalFIRE operating a seasonal coverage in the area. With fire season now 12 months a year little may change. What will need to change is every ones attitude of confrontation and animosity to those on the other side. Too many people have said too many unkind, unflattering and in some cases untrue words throughout the past 18 months. It’s time for some apologies all around. Some of us who have been here through the arson fires and “Cedar fire”, “Angel fire” and “Witch fire” remember the sense of community that was ever present. That spirit has been at worst lost, at best misplaced and needs to be rekindled. Too many people have dug in their heels to defend what they believed to be best, without any thought that their neighbor on the other side was doing exactly the same. We need to come together to more forward with JCFPD or the County Fire Authority.

County Blooming With Painted Lady Butterflies
By Gig Conaughton, County of San Diego Communications Office
You may have noticed—San Diego County is blossoming with beautiful, floating, black and orange “painted lady” butterflies. “You just peek out the window and there they are, they’re everywhere,” said Chris Conlan, who is not only a supervising vector ecologist with the County of San Diego, but also a “butterfly guy” ever since his mom gave him a handmade butterfly net when he was 4 years old. Conlan said what we’re seeing is really just an increase in the normal painted lady butterfly migration we typically see every year here. He said it’s just blooming this year because we’ve had so much rain, and that he expects it to last for a while. “This is normal whenever we get good rain,” he said. “The butterflies will build up their populations down south (in Mexico) where it’s a little warmer and then begin migrating north, laying eggs all along the way on the various weeds and flowers they use for food.” Even though the painted ladies are seemingly everywhere right now, Conlan said the best place to look for them would be where there is lots of food—plants— for caterpillars and butterflies. “Really, right now if you want to see them you’re going to want to find places where there are lots of blooming wildflowers,” he said. Of course, the same conditions that create more butterflies are likely to mean increased numbers of other insects. “More rain equals more bugs,” Conlan said, “That’s just kind of par for the course, (and) it’s a sign that we’re going to see more bugs this spring. The butterflies are just one of the first to come through and make their presence known.” So that means county residents should soon start noticing more crane flies—also known as “mosquito hawks,” the big, ungainly flyers that look like large mosquitoes, but aren’t, that you often see careening around your yard and bouncing off your porch lights. They’ll also see more spiders, gnats, ticks, beetles and other crawlers. What about mosquitoes? As the County’s supervising vector ecologist, Conlan spends a lot of time teaching the public how to protect themselves from mosquitoes and the kinds of diseases they can spread, including West Nile virus, chikungunya, dengue and Zika. San Diego County’s Vector Control Program monitors the population of vectors — animals like ticks, fleas, rodents and mosquitoes — that can transmit diseases to people. Conlan said it’s possible that the rains that have brought the butterflies could possibly mean we’ll have more mosquitoes in the spring. But, he said, when it comes to mosquitoes, you have to wait and see if more rain equals more bugs. That’s because increased rainfall can create more—or fewer—places for mosquitoes to lay eggs and breed. “Places where water may have been stagnant could be flowing,” Conlan said. “And mosquitoes don’t breed in flowing water. Then again, places that otherwise would be not be holding water in dry years could be holding water. So you have have to shift your strategy and adapt to where the mosquitoes are growing.” For now, Conlan said if you like butterlies, this is your time. “Enjoy it while you can,” he said. “Things are going to get a bit more buggy as we get into the spring.”

Dear Editor: Over a million young people worldwide boycotted school on March 15th to demand that their governments legislate aggressive emissions reductions. Experts tell us that fossil fuel combustion must be cut 50% by 2030 to avoid catastrophic climate impacts. Toward this goal, the bipartisan Energy Innovation and Carbon Dividend Act, H.R. 763, has been reintroduced in the U.S. House of Representatives. When enacted, this bill will rapidly drive down carbon pollution, save lives, put money in people's pockets, bolster the economy and innovation, and create jobs. I've asked Representative Mike Levin to learn about and cosponsor H.R. 763 and I recommend that your readers call on their members of Congress to do the same. The youth are planning another global climate strike on May 3rd to appeal to their legislators to preserve a livable world, set aside partisan differences and enact laws such as the U.S. legislation described at EnergyInnovationAct. org Sincerely, T Todd Elvins PhD Solana Beach I, like many, got an automated call from Julian Alerts (aka Brian Kramer, I assume, since he runs the website) telling me to vote no on Measure A. The never ending conflicts of interest from these antidissolution folks are pretty amazing. According to the website, Julian Alerts “…only goal is to inform the community about emergencies as fast as we can.” So this political message is an emergency? LOL, how these people have any credibility with anyone is beyond me. As for the message, it told me that JCFPD has $6 million of assets that will be given up to the County Fire Authority if this measure passes. According to the audited financials, JCFPD has $3.8 million of assets and $1.6 million of debt, for a balance of $2.7 million in assets, a far cry from $6 million. JCFPD also has an auditor statement that it is unlikely to survive as a going concern, so that $2.7 million in assets would most likely disappear no matter what the outcome on Measure A. Voting no on Measure A is putting your trust in a small group of unethical, highly conflicted individuals that continue to simply “make stuff up” in their misguided attempt to drive JCFPD into bankruptcy leaving us with no fire protection and very few friends in high places. Wishful thinking about volunteers, independence and grant money are just that, wishful thinking. As the philosopher Mick Jagger once said, “You can't always get what you want, but if you try sometimes, you might find, you get what you need.” Julian needs professional, well-funded fire and emergency services and therefore needs the County Fire Authority and CalFire. The prior JCFPD BOD and LAFCO are trying to help us get what we need; I pray we don’t screw it up. Tim Taschler On the Subject of Healing The American Civil War (1861-1865) was likely the most horrific event in this nation’s history. Not only were whole urban centers, forests, homes and infrastructure laid to waste but an estimated 620,000-750,000 soldiers along with 50,000 civilians were killed. Hundreds of thousands died of disease in the aftermath. The Reconstruction Era remains mostly an intellectual exercise. Toward the war’s end President Lincoln said “with malice toward none, with charity for all….” Referring in 1865 to aiding soldiers, widows and orphans affected by the destructive war, across allegiances and state lines. History and time have a way of smoothing out the gruesome statistics of war, as much as newer and more recent events rolling over the living. We have however, a history as a nation of some very bad behavior, e.g., treatment of the First People is one of the most vivid, and it is not going away as seen in the national battles over equality. Much has been revealed in researched documentaries and publications recently to remind us how mistakes, bad decisions and policies by authorities keep being repeated, making life miserable for people locked in a lower economic stratum, ascribed to various ethnic stereotypes and ‘racial’ categories including the environment. While life changed for many after the Civil War, prejudice and bigotry continued as usual, and still exhibits its ugly head today. Treaties were negotiated with the First People, and then when inconvenient, violated or just ignored. Economic suppression is standard corporate policy. Ethnic identification is subject to natural, cultural and locational conditions, the phenomena of diversity however has been weaponized by politicians. Race is an artificial and unsupported category created by an 19th century anthropologist with strong Victorian influences on his observations. DNA research continued on page 13

Wildflowers – “Jewels of the Backcountry” Julian Woman’s Club 93rd Annual Wildflower Show The Julian Woman’s Club will present the 93rd annual Wildflower Show at the Julian Town Hall (corner of Highway 78 and Main St. in Julian) from May 3 – 5, 2019 from 10:00 to 4:00 daily. For two days club members collect specimens from the over 850 plant species in the area surrounding Julian. The plant display ranges from desert cacti to high mountain dogwood gathered in a 15 air-mile radius from the historic old mining town of Julian. Permission to collect is obtained from private property owners. Each year flowers vary depending on weather and rainfall. The display is always colorful and informative as plants are labeled and arranged by area of origin. This year’s show is not just about beautiful flowers. It will focus on how we as a community can nurture these jewels by learning about the plants, conservation efforts and what grows best in our climate and region. We will educate the public about our region, purposes of wildflowers, and how we can all have some of these jewels in our own backyards. The show will include public speakers, displays of local school art and science projects related to flowers, items for sale including books and plants, and opportunities to enter raffles for prizes. Admission is free, but donations are gladly accepted as the Julian Woman’s Club provides scholarships and supports other local nonprofit organizations.

College Admission Scandal Grew Out Of A System Ripe For Corruption
by: Rick Eckstein <greatschools.org>
Many youth sports are pricey to play. Yet research shows that college athletes get the biggest admissions advantages. As part of the “Operation Varsity Blues” case that federal prosecutors announced March 12, dozens of people — including Hollywood actresses and wealthy businessmen — stand accused of having bought their children’s way into elite colleges and universities. As a researcher who has studied how young athletes get admitted to college, I don’t see a major difference between this admission fraud case and how many wealthy families can buy their children’s way into elite colleges through “back” and “side” doors. In my research, I show how most intercollegiate sports are fed by wildly expensive “pay to play” youth sports pipelines. These pipelines systematically exclude lower-income families. It takes money to attend so-called “showcase tournaments” to get in front of recruiters. In many ways, then, those ensnared in the current criminal case — which alleges that they paid for their children to get spots on the sports teams of big name schools — couldn’t have succeeded if the college admissions process wasn’t already biased toward wealthier families. continued on page 13

Tending The Orchard In the dim mists shrouding the middle of the last century there was an apple orchard on the gently terraced slopes below and around the house. There were two each of many different kinds of apple, apples that ripened from late August (yellow, sweet… on the way in from the neighbor’s pasture, on the right side of the path and easy to pick from horseback) to Arkansas Blacks which ripened in November. Pie apples, eating apples. All planted many, many years before our family bought the place in 1940. Over time trees died, were taken out, and today only a few old, gnarled apple trees remain along with remnants of the terracing. And before retirement the dream was to replace the old orchard in and recreate… but then retirement came and reality hit. WHAT were we thinking! What would one do with all those apple trees? How could we manage to water them through their first years? If we didn’t want to be commercial — and we didn’t — why in the WORLD would one want so many apple trees. And we won’t count the pears, some of which were original but many of which have just grown wild over the years. So, instead, we put in a few, select fruit trees for personal use. Just two new apple trees, a peach, a nectarine, a Santa Rosa plum, another prune to supplement the old one (the new one isn’t as good)… That was Year One. Year two added an almond, a walnut, a different peach, a Greengage plum. And we thought we were done. Yeah, right, until the next year when we added a couple of more plums, a pomegranate, a persimmon and four odd apple varieties the Kid wanted including one from Kazakhstan… More fruit than we could eat. In a good year every morning from perhaps June until November some fruit can be picked and eaten on the way down to feed the horses though they aren’t all good years. Other fruit goes into pies and cakes and sauces and whatever and in the end the deer have a field day. We were done. Until the trees of Antiquity catalog arrived in the old in-box. So we REALLY needed another quince (to augment the one Grandmother Myrta had planted and it made a huge difference in the yield, whatever one does with a bucketload of quinces) and, since the black oaks along the road had died, we wanted to put in something to shield us from the too-close neighbors. Another cherry, peach, pomegranate and persimmon were added and a medlar for The Kid. Don’t ask. Now we were really done. Except for just One More. Since we forget to turn off the water in the horse drinker at regular intervals it made sense to put a tree where it would sop up some of that runaway water and we really needed a sour cherry. Just one. Yeah, right again. Yesterday we put in the sour cherry, a red crabapple (Father Ed Skagen planted a yellow crabapple which tastes fright but doesn’t LOOK right), a Rhode Island greening to supplement the old Thompson Greening for pies and a Northern spy for another, late eating apple. So those are absolutely the last. Except, maybe, a Bartlett pear as the old pear tree may be on its last legs…

Why Meritocracy Is A Myth In College Admissions
by Morgan Polikoff <greatschool.org>
From test prep and early admissions to donations — here’s what these education researchers argue is wrong with the getting-intocollege process as we know it. The most damaging myth in American higher education is that college admissions is about merit, and that merit is about striving for — and earning — academic excellence. This myth is often used as a weapon against policies like affirmative action that offer minor admissions advantages to low-income students and racial and ethnic minorities. From our standpoint as education researchers who specialize in college admissions, what counts in practice as “merit” is more complicated than the public thinks. For universities, building a student body is not only about identifying the most academically accomplished continued on page 7

The people of Ireland embraced the potato around 1780. The crop rapidly became the primary source of food for most of the population. Potatoes are nourishing and filling, and contain most of the vitamins needed for our daily diet. The crop also is a popular food source around

An Irish potato is waxy, which makes it hold its shape when boiled, a common cooking technique in Ireland. The potatoes also are delicious when fried, roasted or broiled. The waxy texture of the potato makes it gluey and dense when mashed, so select another variety, like a Russet potato, for this purpose. An Irish potato is covered with an off-white or cream-colored skin, and its flesh is a creamy white.
Black flecks or marks often mottle the flesh of the potato, but have no impact on the flavor. In the 1840s, a disease caused by a fungus infested potato crops throughout Europe, causing a devastating famine in Ireland. This time period is called the Great Famine or “Gorta Mor” meaning “the great hunger.” Mass emigration coupled with widespread deaths from starvation caused the Irish population to drop by as much as 25 percent. By 1850, the Irish made up a quarter of the population in Boston, New York City, Philadelphia and Baltimore. After years of hardship and suffering in Ireland, Alexandre Millardet, a French botanist, discovered an effective fungicide to combat the potato blight in 1883. Today, potatoes are the world’s fourth-largest food crop, following rice, wheat and maize. Irish potatoes are perfect for any meal. An old prayer celebrates the tubers as follows: “Potatoes served at breakfast, at dinner served again; potatoes served at supper, forever and Amen!” Here’s a great recipe for Irish continued on page 12

Meritocracy Is A Myth In College Admissions continued from page 5
students. Universities also rely on offices of admissions to protect their financial bottom lines and to project a certain image. The deck is stacked in favor of affluent parents who use their privilege and exploit these institutional needs to find their children a way into elite colleges. The outrage at the admissions scandal that came to light this month in which affluent parents allegedly used fraudulent means to get their children accepted to high-profile universities, including our own school, is well justified. But in our view, there should be just as much outrage over the many ways that already “disadvantaged” students are further disadvantaged when wealthy families do things to protect their competitive advantage in the college admissions process. A range of practices worth questioning At one end of the continuum are the kind of parenting practices that are ethically sound, like enrichment activities for children, which affluent parents are spending more for as of late. Meanwhile, spending on lowerincome kids has barely budged.
This practice by middle-upper class parents gives their children tangible advantages, such as stronger resumes. It also gives them unseen advantages, such as self-confidence and comfort in dealing with authority figures like coaches, doctors, and professors. Research by sociologist Annette Lareau shows that children of working-class parents often are not raised to unlock these kinds of hidden advantages. Test prep The next step on the continuum is more ethically suspect. It demonstrates the fine line between gaming the system and good parenting. Affluent parents spend big on test preparation for SAT/ACT exams, coaching on admissions essays and sessions with high-priced college admissions consultants. No one blames parents for seeking advantages for their children, but these kinds of behaviors amount to a smokescreen because they make applicants appear stronger without actually improving their skills and abilities. Backdoors One step further are backdoor admissions processes that are legal and common, but which only the well-connected know about, often because of the close relationships between selective college admissions offices and
the elite high schools where these students enroll. One example is early decision programs, which often offer substantial increases in the likelihood of admission. But people have to know about and understand the advantages that come from the early decision programs to take advantage of them, as well as have the money to commit to the school. Less affluent families, who need to compare financial offers, can rarely make such early commitments, because they would have to accept whatever financial aid offer was made by their accepting institution. Spring admits Another example is the socalled spring admit, which colleges use to game U.S. News rankings. In this scheme, colleges admit students with weaker qualifications — often affluent students and athletes — on the condition that they defer their admission to the spring after they graduate high school, rather than enrolling immediately in the fall. The spring admission enables colleges not to count weaker students in their admitted class for ranking purposes. Donations Even the notorious “wealthy donor” route — imagine a prospective student’s family giving a large donation — falls into the category of legal but ethically questionable. All of these kinds of advantages are perfectly legal, but they only serve to offer a leg up to people already standing on the top of the pile. Breaking laws And finally, there are the outright scandals, such as the one that the Department of Justice announced on March 12. It involves fabrication of test scores, bribes of athletic coaches, and more. To be sure, these alleged actions were morally and legally wrong. However, the fact that other practices — such as working with elite college counselors to encourage affluent students to apply in early decision or as a spring admit — are not seen as over the line raises questions about where the line should be drawn. The plaintiffs in a federal court case against Harvard claim the problem is not with mechanisms that protect pathways of access for the wealthy, but rather with affirmative action based on race. This despite the fact that affirmative action in college admission is a policy of being race-aware, not race-based — it is just one factor among many that is used to make holistic decisions. Admission officers
are prohibited from considering race as a deciding factor in their decisions. What the public wants The truth is that voters support affirmative preferences for disadvantaged students, though results are often sensitive to how questions are asked. A poll we conducted recently of California registered voters found that most people support admissions advantages for low-income students and racial or ethnic minorities. This result matches polls from Pew and Gallup, which find that majorities support “affirmative action for racial minorities.” In contrast, voters in our poll were more opposed to advantages for athletes and for children of donors. Voters’ intuitions may not be far off. In highly selective institutions, once the legacy students, studentathletes and other applicants with highly desirable qualities are admitted, there are fewer spots remaining for which to compete. The college admissions scandal should be a wake-up call to remake selective college admissions so that wealth doesn’t have so much influence. Since many believe that where a person goes to college matters when it comes to getting a goodpaying job, it’s important — at least from an equity standpoint — for selective colleges to be transparent about how they admit students. If the scandal reveals anything, it is that some affluent parents will stop at nothing to make sure their children win in the high-stakes game of college admissions.

Why Rich Parents Are More Likely To Be Unethical by: David M. Mayer
Research shows that wealthy people will go to great lengths to maintain their higher status. Shocker: entitlement plays a role. Federal attorneys have arrested 50 people in a college admission scam that allowed wealthy parents to buy their kids’ admission to elite universities. Prosecutors found that parents together paid up to $6.5 million to get their kids into college. The list includes celebrity parents such as actresses Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin. Some might ask why did these parents fail to consider the moral implications of their actions? My 20 years of research in moral psychology suggests many reasons why people behave in an unethical manner. When it comes to the wealthy, research shows that they will go to great lengths to maintain their higher status. A sense of entitlement plays a role. How People Rationalize Let’s first consider what allows people to act unethically and yet not feel guilt or remorse. Research shows that people are good at rationalizing unethical actions that serve their self-interest. The success, or failure, of one’s children often has implications for how parents view themselves and are viewed by others. They are more likely to bask in the reflected glory of their children. They seem to gain esteem based on their connection to successful children. This means parents can be motivated by self-interest to ensure their children’s achievement. In the case of cheating for their children, parents can justify the behavior through comparisons that help them morally disengage with an action. For example, they could say that other parents do a lot worse things, or minimize the consequences of their actions through words such as, “My behavior did not cause much harm.” Viewing the unethical outcomes as serving others, including one’s children, could help parents create a psychological distance to rationalize misconduct. Several studies demonstrate that people are more likely to be unethical when their actions also help someone else. For example, it is easier for employees to accept a bribe when they plan to share the proceeds with coworkers. Sense Of Entitlement When it comes to the wealthy and privileged, a sense of entitlement, or a belief that one is deserving of privileges over others, can play an important role in unethical conduct. Privileged individuals are also less likely to follow rules and instructions given they believe the rules are unjust. Because they feel deserving of more than their fair share, they are willing to Forest and Fire violate norms of appropriate and Capacity Program socially agreed upon conduct. Grant Feeling a sense of entitlement continued from page 1 also leads people to be more competitive, selfish and Program (WIP) approach in aggressive when they sense priority watersheds in need of a threat. For example, white forest-health activities across males are less likely to support the state with a special focus on affirmative action to even the those at-risk from catastrophic playing field because it threatens wildfire and ripe for capacity their privileged status. building.

Life altering trials occur daily in America. Even if they’ve got you dead to rights, everyone is entitled to their day in court. While many will settle their cases because of their lack of financial means and take a plea to spare the agony, the rich and famous seem to be willing to roll the dice and take a chance on what their riches and public opinion will bring them. Political trials are also crowd pleasers because no matter the letter of the law, public opinion on the verdict seems to be roughly spit fifty, fifty. So without further gilding the lily and no more adieu, here are a few American trials that have piqued Americas interest with my sarcastic comments deftly woven into the story. As we all know Bowe Bergdahl was charged with very serious military crimes, one count of “desertion with intent to shirk important or hazardous duty" and one count of "misbehavior before the enemy by endangering the safety of a command, unit or place." The more serious charge of misbehavior could have been punished with a life sentence. While the case was hot in the news for a while it has seems to have faded from public awareness. The results of the trial in which prosecutors were seeking fourteen years in confinement, resulted in no jail time, reduction in rank from sergeant to private, a $10,000.00 fine supposedly coming from a reduction of his pay for a period of ten months and a dishonorable discharge. Young Bowe seems to have dodged a bullet so to speak but stay tuned. He has appealed his dishonorable discharge and the army is trying to determine if he is owed back pay of about $300,000.00. Boy, Eddie Slovik who was executed for desertion during WWII was sure born a few years too early. Martha Stewart, the head of a multi billion dollar media, marketing empire actually went to jail for what she said was a “small personal matter.” Seems she got caught up in an insider trading scheme when she dumped 4,000 shares of ImClone stock prior to the announcement that the company would not get FDA approval on one of their pharmaceutical products. She did avoid a huge loss and realized a large profit on the deal but insisted that it was a preplanned action suggested by her broker. In fact, the evidence against her was suspect so the Justice Department dropped the insider trading charges and focused on her lies to federal investigators. It just goes to show that if you lie, to the Ef Bee Ahh, you could get burned and burned she got. The poor dear got five whole months in the country club of federal prison camps in Alderson, West Virginia. This was even after she specifically requested to go to a Connecticut or Florida facility. She also had to serve five months of monitored home confinement on her 153 acre estate in Bedford, New York. Made to suffer even more, she was only allowed to leave the estate for a mere 48 hours per week. When commenting on her experience to Katie Couric she said “It was horrifying and no one, … should have to go through that kind of indignity, really, except for murderers…” “In minimum security you still couldn’t walk out the gate or cross the river. There’s still guards and it’s still nasty.” Poor dear.

Solution page 12 and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand. Mr. Cosby is 81 and has been the beneficiary of his popularity as a groundbreaking Black performer on the TV show “I Spy,” the inimitable Dr. Huxtable on the Cosby Show, and standup comedian filling large venues and arenas. He was the recipient of humanitarian awards and over twenty five honorary degrees from American universities and colleges. This Philadelphia native has been active it seems, since the mid sixties, drugging, raping and sexually abusing woman. While most cases against him have surpassed the statute of limitations, mega attorney Gloria Allread is representing 33 women who have accused Cosby of alleged sexual crimes. Mr. Cosby is currently seeking to appeal his sentence. His attorney claims the presiding judge erred in his sentencing
because he failed to take into consideration his age, failing health and his blindness. Cosby’s spokesman Andrew Wyatt, while admitting that Mr. Cosby is not Jesus, he seemed to play the race card when he said that “we know what this country has done to black men for centuries.” He also said the “Mr. Cosby knows that these are lies” Well… if they are and considering he’s on his twentieth attorney, you’d think that someone ought to be able to convince a jury. Cosby was taken into custody immediately after sentencing and there he remains as he awaits his appeal. While I can’t comment on all the trials that have happened in America, how about those that got away with murder and some that didn’t. You all remember O.J. and what compelling TV that it was. Had you ever heard of one of the biggest, actors,
producer, director of the 1920s, Fatty Arbuckle? Three trials for murder, three walks, including a written apology from one of the juries. Michael Jackson? A ton of money and good attorneys kept him free though some would say that his “life” was a prison. Actor Robert Blake was acquitted of killing his wife even after calling the jurors “incredibly stupid.” Then there were the cases when the justice system seemed to work. Mass murders Tim McVeigh and Charles Manson got their due. Colin Ferguson who murdered 6 on a Long Island train in 1993 got 300 years. He represented himself causing his former attorney to say that “We have an insane defendant rejecting an insanity defense for an insane reason,” Lyle and Erik Menendez are still doing time for their parents murder in 1989. Mafia Don, John Gotti got his
due in 1992 and was sentenced to life in prison. Of course life only lasted until 2002 for Don John dying in prison of throat cancer. Last but not least is Scott Peterson who is still on death row after being convicted of killing his wife and unborn child in 2004.

Supremist Tea Set
Once in a while, an unfamiliar design shows up in an auction. The Auction Gallery of the Palm Beaches listed a tea set, two cups and a teapot with an Art Deco look and unfamiliar marks. The set was white with black and red blocks of color. The teapot had a vertical spout and rectangular handles creating a new geometric shape. The mark solved the mystery once it was translated. Written on the bottom of each piece in the Russian (Cyrillic) alphabet was the word that translated to "Supremist." Next to it was the familiar hammer-and-sickle logo. Some quick research told
The Julian News 9
This group of porcelains, a teapot and two cups, was made in Russia in 1923 in the “Supremist” style. It did not attract any bidders at a Florida auction, even though it is a good example of a special style. the story: It was an example of Supremist Art popular in Russia from 1913 to the late 1920s. (The teapot was dated 1923.) The Russian who created the style claimed it to be superior to all art of the past. It was totally abstract, based on the circle, square and cross and the colors red, white and black. Yet something -- the extreme look of the set, the high estimate of $7,000 to $9,000, the lack of demand for a teapot with
cups instead of a set with teapot, creamer and sugar, or perhaps the Russian origin -- kept bidders away. The group did not sell. At any auction, there can be valuable items that are passed over because the day's crowd is looking for something else. Timing and location do have an effect on prices. *** Q: How much is an old World War I helmet worth? A: Steel helmets, sometimes called trench helmets, were developed in France in 1915 to provide protection to troops fighting in the trenches during World War I. Most soldiers wore leather or cloth hats before that. The British and Germans developed their own version of the steel helmet. When the American Expeditionary Forces entered the war in 1917, they only had wool hats. Helmets were bought from Britain to outfit troops until the U.S. began making a version known as the M-1917 later that
year. The helmets were coated with sawdust while the paint was still wet, making a harder, nonreflective surface. There are collectors who want anything from World War I, and re-enactors who want authentic equipment. Complete World War I steel helmets in good condition sell for over $100. *** RECENT PRICES Celery dish, RS Prussia, pink roses, green leaves, light green ground, white handles, 13 1/2 x 7 inches, $30.

Dear EarthTalk: I saw a news item about overhauling classic old cars with electric engines, and wondering if this can be done with any old car, such as my 1999 Subaru Outback? If this is feasible, maybe I should reconsider my plan of trading up for a new Prius. -- Tim St. Germain, Boise, ID It’s true that there’s never been a better time to convert an old gas guzzling car into an emissionsfree electric vehicle (EV), but some makes and models are better suited for a so-called “EV swap” than others. Michael Bream of San Marcos, California’s EV West, which made news recently with its conversions of old VWs and Porsches into EVs, says you could convert a ‘99 Subaru—but EV Swaps are typically reserved for classic cars. “A newer Subaru has a ULEV certified (low emission) engine, so it’s not as bad a polluter as a classic car, and doesn't suffer from reliability and power issues that classic cars typically suffer from,” he says. “A typical conversion of a Subaru would cost about the same with parts and labor as a brand-new all-wheel drive Tesla Model 3, so unless your vehicle is
extremely well loved, or you can't stand the thought of selling it, then it might be a better solution to buy or lease a new EV.” EV West is one of a handful of garages across North America now specializing in EV conversions. Some others include: Zelectric Motors (San Diego, CA), ElectricGT (Chatsworth, CA), Make Mine Electric (Sebastopol, CA), Electric Vehicles of Washington (Bellingham, WA), Shockwave Motors (Russellville, TN), Epic Car Conversions (Toronto, ON) and Green Shed Conversions (Crystal River, FL). If you don’t want to wait to get your car converted by one of these shops, you’ll just have to do it yourself (or find a local mechanic looking for an interesting project). Luckily lots of companies now sell EV conversion kits (Canadian Electric Vehicles, Electro Automotive, Wilderness Electric Vehicles, DIY EV, EV Source, Metric Mind Corporation, EV Drive) that include new engines, batteries and components. Expect to spend at least $8,000 on all the parts needed for the job (and tack on an additional ~50 percent more if you opt for longer-range lithium ion batteries). The labor will be up to you. DIYers should check out EVRater.com’s “How to Build Your own Electric Vehicle in 5 Easy Steps” or Mechanic Doctor’s “How to Convert Your Car to an Electric Vehicle” for step-by-step instructions. Meanwhile, California-based EV4U runs “3-Day Hands-On Conversion Workshops” near

Sacramento for $495. With a new base model Prius starting at $23k, you may well be better off doing the EV Swap on your old car. According to EVW, the operating costs of driving a Prius hybrid ($0.14/mile) are about four times what it costs to get around in an EV (whether native or a conversion). “In addition to the fuel savings, electric cars do not need oil changes, spark plugs, distributors, timing belts, etc.,” EVW adds. What you won’t get is that new car smell or the nervous feeling of driving a brand-new car off the dealer’s lot. But you will get the satisfaction of knowing that you saved two tons of metal from the junk heap—and saved the world the trouble of sourcing materials for and building another brandnew Prius.

Electric & phone lines are adjacent to the property. and hands-on ideas they need to make play an important part of their child’s day. • Enhanced literacy: Some of the same mental connections that take place when a child is first learning to read are employed in the world of pretend. Whether it’s a banana that becomes a phone or a towel being used as a cape, grasping symbolism in the world of play can pave the way for children to better recognize that each letter of the alphabet represents a sound. Encourage kids to use the everyday objects and toys around them to build a world of creativity and fun. • Leadership skills: From a very young age, playtime experiences can have a major impact on the development of children’s leadership skills. In the case of superhero play, the act of taking on a powerful persona offers kids an opportunity to assert themselves and gain self-confidence, while creatively constructing their own story lines. Through play, parents, teachers and mentors can help foster these attributes in children. • Movement: Movement helps children hone their coordination, balance and motor skills. Associating exercise with fun can set a precedent for a lifetime habit. What’s more, physical
activity encourages better eating and sleeping habits. Be sure your kids have a safe place to play indoors that lets them burn off all their energy. When the weather is nice, take the fun to the backyard or a nearby park, where the possibilities for pretend expand. • Perseverance: Known as the “Batman Effect,” a 2016 study published in “Child Development” found that kids stay better focused on a task when they are pretending to be their favorite superheroes or characters. Through play, you can encourage your children to channel the bravery and perseverance of the superheroes they admire most, giving them the emotional tools needed to thrive in a challenging
world. • Emotional development: Role play offers children an opportunity to explore their emotions, both good and bad, while building compassion. Children can channel frustration, anger, fear and triumph into the worlds, characters and storylines they create, learning to manage these emotions in healthy ways. For more child development tips and play resources, visit TheGeniusofPlay.org. There may be times when you’d prefer your child finally change out of his or her superhero costume. But by letting kids explore their creativity, you can help them reap the benefits of this type of play.

What The Pension Ruling Means For California’s Taxpayers Last week, the California Supreme Court issued a ruling in Cal Fire Local 2881 v. CalPERS, a case involving public employee pensions. For taxpayers, the decision was a mixed bag. On the plus side, the court refused to find a contractual right to retain an option to purchase “air time,” a perk that allowed employees with at least five years of service to purchase up to five years of additional credits before they retire. Under this plan, a 20year employee could receive a pension based on 25 years of contributions. On the negative side, the high court left intact, for now, the so-called California Rule, which has been interpreted as an impediment to government entities seeking to reduce their pension costs. The rule, unique to California, provides that no pension benefit provided to public employees via a statute can be withdrawn without replacement of a “comparable” benefit, even as deferred compensation for services not yet provided. The unanimous 54-page opinion by the Supreme Court resulted in a wide variance of headlines and social media posts. The Associated Press read “California’s Supreme Court upholds pension rollback.” Ironically, a conservative reform group sharply criticized the decision for failing to repeal the California rule outright while another conservative policy organization called it a “victory for taxpayers.” So what was it? Actually, a little of both. That the powerful public employee unions would lose any battle in California is notable. And for taxpayers, an express ruling against a labor organization – which this was – can only be viewed as positive. This is not to denigrate all public employees in California, the majority of whom earn their pay and benefits. But for taxpayers, the pension crisis is a very big deal. More than a decade ago, the unions used their political muscle to obtain benefits offered nowhere else in the nation, including a series of laws which allowed public employees to spike their pensions. As a result, California now has hundreds of billions of dollars in unfunded pension obligations. This is debt, pure and simple, with no easy
by Jon Coupal
way to pay down that debt without big reforms or big tax hikes. No sane policy leader in California disputes the severity of the pension crisis, which has already manifested itself by significant impacts on other government spending. This is called “crowd-out” – the phenomenon of an increasing share of a government entity’s general fund having to pay down debt as opposed to paying for services such as police, fire, libraries, schools and trash collection. How bad can “crowd out” get? In the city of Chicago, only a nickel of every dollar generated from property taxes goes to city services while the remaining 95 cents goes to debt reduction. Taxpayers in Illinois, like taxpayers in New Jersey, New York and Ohio, are fleeing those states for lower-tax states. And the out-migration of California citizens because of high taxes is well documented. Much of these demographic changes are being driven by the nationwide pension crisis. Taxpayers should also understand that this is a non-partisan issue. To his credit, former Governor Jerry Brown presented a 12-point comprehensive pension reform plan which, had it been enacted, would have solved virtually all of California’s public pension problems. Although the California legislature rejected most of the proposals, they did address some of the more egregious abuses including the airtime benefit law, which was later repealed in 2013. If taxpayers are wondering about the extent to which further pension reforms can now be pursued in light of the Supreme Court ruling, they are not alone. Pension experts, local governments and labor interests are all wondering the same thing. However, it is fairly certain that full repeal of the California Rule in one single case is unlikely. Pension reforms will probably be upheld only if they are modest, incremental adjustments to existing benefits. We can only hope that, in the meantime, pension costs don’t crush taxpayers more than they are doing so now. *** Jon Coupal is the president of Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association.

continued from page 2 has placed the race notion where it belongs, in the trash with other pseudo-science. Reservations, Ghettos and isolationism are destructive policies. The Civil Rights Act was signed in 1964 under great civil upheaval and protest, 99 years after Lincoln’s declaration. There were several follow-on acts to ‘fix’ issues and make sure all the bases were covered. The battle is still raging over ‘Civil’ and ‘Social’ legislation, whereas you might have reasonably thought matters of social and equal justice had been settled and we could move on to more pressing concerns. Not so! Violations and murders went uninvestigated after the Civil War and still occur today. Justice did not and has not prevailed. The Civil War had a significant impact on our nation, but it did not produce the outcome expected. The most outrageous observation, to me however, is the persistence of the uninformed mentality, conveniently justified by all sorts of creative forms of rationalization and selective perception, e.g., anti-vaxers vs research, belief vs science, rumor vs facts, want vs need, conspiracy vs reality, idea vs test, acceptance vs discovery, fear vs courage, anecdote vs established knowledge, inferior vs equal etc. Of course the national mythology and political rhetoric about ‘freedom’, ‘democracy’ and ‘republic’ as something worth dying for is laughable when the evidence shows we are an Oligarchy. Civil rights and equality have never, unfortunately, become uniform national ethics. Seems to me the local scene is much the same. It is a shame, when the potential is so much greater than the current mess created by the lack of factual discussion. And then the hope of magical reconciliation after
the battle. Let’s just all get along! Let’s have a party! Wow if such magic is possible, why don’t we just use it to solve the JCFPD fiscal crisis? The existence of new, professionally staffed, 24/7 fire stations have got to be an urban myth, right? The County Fire Authority, nah, that’s just a big government takeover. ISO ratings aren’t very important, right? And communities happy about getting new 24/7 professional fire stations are just raving mad, right? The fire holocausts to our north are just stuff others experience. Won’t happen to us, cause we have ‘magic’ on our side! My prediction, for what it’s worth: if Measure ‘A’ prevails, healing over time might be possible, but not done with new spins on the intent of the battle. It will prevail because it is a win-win outcome. If Measure ‘A’ fails, the battle will have only just begun. This time played out by the big guns, in court. That is the next crisis for the community, and when that battle is resolved, ‘magic’ will have been exposed for what it is, just plain old slight of hand, not supernatural forces that work for some and not for all.

a need for admiration, and a lack of empathy. Consequences of status loss Individuals who think they deserve unfair advantages are more likely to take actions to increase their level of status, such as ensuring their children attend high-status universities. Losing status appears to be particularly threatening for highstatus individuals. A recent review of the research on status demonstrates that status loss, or even a fear of status loss, has been associated with an increase in suicide attempts. Individuals have been reported to show physiological changes such as higher blood pressure and pulse. Such individuals also made increased efforts to avoid status loss by being willing to pay money and allocating resources to themselves. In their book The Coddling of the American Mind, First Amendment expert Greg Lukianoff and social psychologist Jonathan Haidt make the case that parents, especially in the upper class, are increasingly anxious about their children attending top universities. These authors argue that given economic prospects are less certain because of stagnating wages, automation, and globalization, wealthier parents tend to be particularly concerned about the future economic opportunities for their children. Feeling invulnerable People who feel a sense of power, which often comes along with wealth and fame, tend to be less likely to believe they are vulnerable to the detrimental consequences of unethical behavior. Experiencing a psychological sense of power leads to a false feeling of control. It could also lead to increased risk-taking and a decrease in concern for others. It is possible that some of these moral psychology reasons were behind these wealthy parents cheating on behalf of their children. A desire to go to great lengths to help one’s child is admirable. However, when those lengths cross ethical boundaries it is a step too far. Dave Mayer, Ph.D. is a Professor in the Management and Organizations Area at Michigan Ross.

College Admission Scandal
continued from page 3 College admissions favor the wealthy Even if college sports is taken out of the equation, the college admissions process already favors wealthy families in a variety of ways. It has long been known that higher family income usually correlates with higher standardized test scores. There are many test prep companies, including some that guarantee higher scores for approximately $1,000. Taking advantage of test prep may not be “fraud.” But it certainly provides advantages to the wealthy and has little to do with academic merit. In his book The Price of Admission, Daniel Golden highlights a number of other ways wealthy families can buy their way into elite universities. These include large donations, financing new buildings, creating endowments, and playing on parents’ celebrity status. These also have little to do with an applicant’s academic merit, but would never be considered criminal. Sociologist David Karen has documented how attendance at expensive boarding schools gives wealthy students an admissions advantage to Ivy League universities. That may not be fraudulent, but it certainly seems unfair. Athletics and admission advantages So how do the wealthy get an advantage when it comes to college athletics? Research has shown that recruited athletes receive the largest admissions advantages independent of academic merit.
The advantage varies by sport and athletic division, but is almost universal within higher education. Many sports — particularly squash, lacrosse, fencing, and rowing — are pricey to play, so rich kids get opportunities that are out of reach for the poor. Even non-elite sports, such as soccer and softball, are subject to class-based restrictions. The Mellon Foundation’s report “College and Beyond” found that recruited athletes with lower academic credentials get admitted at four times the rate of non-athletes with similar credentials. Athlete screening In the Varsity Blues case, some students’ parents essentially bought their children’s spot on a team. For instance, Stanford sailing coach John Vandemoer is charged with accepting contributions to the sailing program in exchange for recommending two prospective students. He pleaded guilty March 12. How could a coach pull off this sleight of hand without drawing attention? The answer, I believe, lies in the growing role of intercollegiate sports in adding some predictability to the very unpredictable enrollment process. Schools want to lock prospective students in as quickly as possible. College athletes are generally admitted through a school’s early decision process. As the proportion of admitted athletes increases, so does the proportion of locked-in applicants. Colleges also benefit by admitting more students early since those people are not part of acceptance-rate calculations. The result is a lower acceptance rate, which inflates the school’s perceived selectivity. This in turn spurs an increase in future
applications, which further lowers the acceptance rate — and again increases perceived selectivity — without any objective changes in the actual quality of teaching and research. College sports teams are an increasingly attractive venue for locking in these early admissions. It is not unusual to have 30 or 40 players on a college soccer or lacrosse team. Most will never play. Women’s crew teams often have more than 100 rowers. Most will never get into a boat. Many will quit the team after one season but remain students. Of course, because a family can afford to have their child play a sport doesn’t mean the student is a good athlete. The pipeline system is far better at identifying the best payers rather than the best players. Since scholarships are quite rare, it costs colleges almost nothing to have some bad players on the roster. And there are benefits. I’m certainly not defending the families and entrepreneurs at the heart of the Varsity Blues scandal for breaking the law to take advantage of a system already fraught with inequalities. The prosecutors in this case have insisted that “there can be no separate admissions system for the wealthy.” For that to be true, current practices that favor deeppocketed families would have to be abandoned. That will require much more than prosecuting a few people who use their wealth to take advantage of an admissions process that already favors the rich. Rick Eckstein is a nationally
recognized expert on the commercialization of youth sports and the economics of higher education. His recently published book, "How Intercollegiate Athletics are Hurting Girls' Sports: The Pay to Play Pipeline" (Rowman and Littlefield), draws a causal connection between the corporatization of higher education and the rampant commercialization of youth sports. This relationship has detrimental impacts on college costs and the increasingly classexclusive landscape of youth sports that systematically excludes poorer, darker, and non-suburban families. Families that can access the "pay to play youth sports to college pipeline" are regularly misled about the chances of receiving athletic scholarships and admissions advantages. The American Library Association recommends this book for all readers, and the research has been regularly featured in the national media.

LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) A sudden change of mind by someone you relied on could cause a delay in moving ahead with your plans. But those whom you've helped out before are prepared to return the favor. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) You start the week feeling too shy to speak up in front of others. However, your self-assurance soon takes over, giving you the confidence you need to make yourself heard. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) One way to deal with a pesky personal dilemma this week is to meet it head-on. Insist on an explanation of why the situation reached this point and what can be done to change it. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) The creative Capricorn finds several outlets for her or his talents this week. Also note that while a romantic connection looks promising, remember to allow it to develop on its own. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) You stand out this week as the best friend a friend can have. But be careful that you don't take too many bows, or you might see gratitude replaced with resentment. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) What seems to be an ideal investment should be checked out thoroughly before you snap at the offer and find yourself hooked by an expensive scam. BORN THIS WEEK: Your wisdom is matched by your generosity. You are a person who people know they can rely on.

March 12, 2018 So today our nation honors Vietnam vets, and we thank our fellow Americans. It still floors me to see constant scams done in our name, from the Wounded Warriors to literally dozens more, we need the government to assist the disabled. Its been an interesting road, being drafted into the Army full of Americans that were a mix of college grads and high school dropouts. We put aside our differences, assumed a common burden, worked together, and faced the music... I learned a lot and was a better man afterwards ... H

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Although you tend to bore easily and leave others to finish what you start, this is one time when you'd be wise to complete things on your own. Then you can move on to something new. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Your indecision about a personal situation might come out of those mixed signals you're getting. Best not to make any commitments until you have a better sense of how things are going. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A dispute appears to be getting out of hand. But you should be able to step in and bring it all under control soon. Be patient. News about a potential career move might be delayed. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Career obligations could interfere with important personal plans. But using a combination of common sense and compromise helps resolve the dilemma to everyone's satisfaction. LEO (July 23 to August 22) A stressful situation drains some of your energy reserves. But you soon bounce back in time to finish your tasks and enjoy a well-deserved weekend getaway. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) This is a good time to throw a party for friends and colleagues, and surprise them with your dazzling domestic skills. You also might want to reconsider that career move you put on hold.
