Growing Need For FAIR Plan Leads Insurance Commissioner To Order Increased Coverage Options


Load Em Up - Move Em Out


Voting for President? Make Sure Your Ballot Has The Option You Want

by Tracy DeFore, County of San Diego Communications Office

On Friday the County Fire Authority began the process of intigrating the former JCFPD station into their ranks. They removed all the aparatus that had been stored in the station taking down to the County Fleet Services Facility for inspection and maintenance. There is no time table for reopening the station as a few facility maintenance issues need to be resolved before they can occupy the station. A court ruling from Judge Trapp, that was not available to review at press time, was the impitus for the actions. Contrary to the rumor mill, the area is still being fully covered from Station 50 across from the high school and Station 51 out by Lake Cuyamaca. County facilities crews will be active at the fire house, cleaning and brining it uop to speed for the eventual Fire Authority move in. At that time it is expected that some of the aparatus that was removed will be brought back into service.

Julian Witnesses Mercury's Solar Transit, And Lives To Tell About It

by Doug Sollosy

There was a little black spot on the Sun today..., but wait a minute Sting, it was Mercury, the closest planet to the Sun, taking an orbital stroll between the Earth and our great star furnace. A group of us Dark Sky people and friends just couldn't resist looking up, well, at least just above the horizon as the Sun made its first appearance of the day. Mercury was already part way across the radiant face of our nearest star. By the time day broke, a few minutes past six, we had several telescopes and even binoculars set up next to the library, all with special solar filters to make sure that all eyes were protected. Sure enough, some early risers began to show up, including some from Pasadena and Ocean Beach, as well as 15 or 20 local folks, all eager to witness the planetary ballet.

Daffodil Planting Season Is Here

Friday, November 15 - Mrs. Stanley’s fourth grade class has gotten the yearly daffodil planting started across the highway from the Post Office. This week Mrs. Tellez will take her class of third and fourth graders to the Lake Cuyamaca Cafe and Store on Tuesday the 19th. Followed by Mrs. McFedries fifth grade class on Thursday(21st) heading down to Wynola Pizza for a 10am planting. Next up will be the second and third graders from Mrs. Cirillo and Ms Tangeman on Friday the 22nd across from the High School office bright and early at 8:45. Anyone interested in helping out should bring shovels, gloves, smiles and solid shoes(no flip-flops). Should the weather turn ugly, i.e: Rain or snow, we will cancel that days activities and reschedule for anoher time. Come spring we can all look for the daffodils popping their stems from the ground and filling the area with blooms - just in time for the annual daffodil show at the Town Hall.

Expanded Coverage Features And Increased Limits To Bring Relief To Consumers Looking For More Adequate Coverage SACRAMENTO, Calif. — As wildfire risk drives more non-renewals of homeowner insurance across the state, Insurance Commissioner Ricardo Lara is taking action to help homeowners find adequate coverage to protect their homes by ordering the FAIR Plan to offer a comprehensive policy in addition to its current dwelling fire-only coverage by June 1, 2020, with traditional homeowner features, such as coverage for water damage and personal liability. He also ordered the FAIR Plan to increase coverage limits and to offer a nofee monthly payment plan as well as allow for policyholders to pay by credit card or electronic funds transfer without any fees. The growing unavailability of homeowners and fire insurance has touched virtually every county in the state and threatens home values, real estate transactions, tax revenues, emergency services, and the integrity of California communities. “I am taking this action after meeting with thousands of California homeowners across the state who are struggling to find coverage to protect their homes,” said Commissioner Lara. “People forced to use the FAIR Plan as temporary insurance deserve the same coverage provided by traditional insurers. This crisis requires the FAIR Plan to provide a comprehensive option for Californians who have no other option for homeowners insurance.” Amy Bach, Executive Director of United Policyholders, joined Commissioner Lara in support of the changes. “United Policyholders is hearing from panicked consumers daily. Homeowners throughout the state are between a rock and a hard place and desperate for help finding affordable insurance,” said Bach. “Commissioner Lara has heard their pleas and is taking decisive action.” Effective April 1, 2020, the FAIR Plan will increase the combined dwelling coverage limit from $1.5 million to $3 million. Increasing the FAIR Plan’s dwelling coverage limit makes sense in today’s real estate market in California. In many areas where people are forced to turn to the FAIR Plan for coverage, they find the $1.5 million coverage limit is not enough and need to find additional coverage, often through the surplus lines market. The Commissioner also ordered the FAIR Plan to offer consumers a monthly payment plan and to be able to pay by credit card or electronic funds transfer--all without fees. These changes are in addition to other changes that Commissioner Lara convinced the FAIR Plan to undertake earlier this year, including providing more transparency in their meetings and allowing the Department of Insurance to participate in those meetings and mandating the FAIR Plan obtain Department approval prior to disbursing operating profits back to participating insurers. The FAIR Plan is established under California law as the homeowners’ “insurer of last resort,” and requiring the FAIR Plan to offer a comprehensive homeowners’ policy, known as HO-3 coverage, will save consumers from having to purchase a second companion policy to cover other hazards such as liability, water damage, and theft. While the FAIR Plan is intended as a temporary solution, it is important that its product mirrors traditional coverage as much as possible. Many of the affected California homeowners have already been inconvenienced by planned power outages by utilities, mandatory evacuations, and repeated wildfire threats year after year. Requiring these same homeowners to have to piece together multiple policies to achieve full coverage is needlessly burdensome. “Restoring stability to the homeowners and fire insurance marketplace will take everyone working together to find solutions,” said Commissioner Lara. “By involving homeowners, advocates, local and state government, and insurance companies, I am confident we will find common sense solutions.” See the commissioners order here--> http://www.insurance. c a.g ov/ 0 4 0 0 - n ew s / 010 0 - p r e s s - r e l e a s e s / 2 019 /u p l o a d / nr089FAIRPlanOrder111419.pdf

Mercury, with a modest diameter of 3,032 miles, looked tiny as it meandered accross the solar disc, even though it's 36 million miles closer to us than the Sun, which is all of 864,340 miles in diameter! Besides our direct visual foray there was a live view feed on Vivek's computer monitor, and some of us took time lapse images with the goal of producing a video record, for those of you who didn't quite get up in time. That funny paper clip like object on the screen shot was a plane which just happened to make a solar transit as we watched Mercury. Small world! Check the Julian Dark Sky Network website in the next two weeks for a video. Next Mercury transit visible here? Not until 2049.

Veterans Commemorate 50th Anniversary Of Vietnam War With ‘Alive Day’ Stories

(NAPS)—Army veteran Ron Hope was piloting a helicopter in Vietnam to extract a company of soldiers, when he was shot down. His left brachial plexus—the network of nerves that sends signals from the spinal cord to the arm and hand—was crushed. He also continued on page 12

The San Diego County Registrar’s office is sending nearly 1.8 million postcards to the County’s registered voters in the coming weeks to let you know that your political party registration determines which presidential primary candidates will appear on your March 3, 2020 primary election ballot. So – who can you vote for? It depends on how you’ve registered. All registered voters fall under one of two categories. Registered with a Political Party If you are registered with one of the six political parties in California, your ballot will list only that party’s presidential primary candidates. You can vote only for that party’s presidential candidates. If your party registration is different from the party of the presidential primary candidate you want to vote for, you will need to register to vote with that party. Registered as Nonpartisan If you are registered as nonpartisan (also known as independent or no party preference), your March 3 ballot will not list the presidential primary contest or candidates. More than 550,000 voters in San Diego County are registered as nonpartisan. If you are one of them, you can take steps now to vote for a presidential candidate in the primary. Political Parties Allowing Nonpartisan Voters to Cross Over This year, the American Independent, Democratic and Libertarian parties are allowing nonpartisan voters to take part in their presidential primary elections. But nonpartisan voters must request one of these three parties’ ballots to vote for that party’s presidential primary candidate. Selecting one of these three parties’ ballots will not register you with that party. You will remain a nonpartisan voter. More than 300,000 nonpartisan voters are also permanent mail ballot voters. If you are one, you will get a postcard asking you to let the Registrar’s office know your choice of party ballot before Jan. 6, so it is included in the first mailing of mail ballots going out the week of Feb. 11. Otherwise, you will receive the nonpartisan ballot, which will not include the presidential contest. Also note that the Democratic Party is allowing nonpartisan voters to vote in its presidential contest but not its central committee contest. If requested, you will receive the nonpartisan version of the Democratic ballot. Political Parties Not Allowing Nonpartisan Voters to Crossover This year, the Green, Peace and Freedom and Republican Parties have closed their presidential primary to nonpartisan voters. That means you need to be registered with one of those parties to vote for their primary election presidential candidates. Nonpartisan voters will not be able to select one of these ballots. Nonpartisan voters who want one of these parties’ ballots will need to re-register with that continued on page 7

Dear Parents and Warner Community members, There have been a lot of rumors floating around concerning the Warner Springs Resource Center, The Pacific Coast Trail, hikers, and Warner Unified School District. I want to clarify what is going on to the best of my knowledge. Warner Unified owns the property on the Southeast side of Highway 79, where the school is located and we lease the property across the street on the northwest side of Highway 79 from Warner Ranch. This land houses the football field, the kid’s baseball diamonds, 2 portables, and the concession stand. All of this property is considered school grounds. This agreement with Warner Ranch has been in place for many years, and will hopefully continue for many more years to come. In 1998, we began subleasing part of that property to the Resource Center. The Resource Center and the school has had a good symbiotic relationship for some time, helping each other out with different needs, such as fundraising, and providing wonderful services to the community. As the PCT has gained more fame and more and more hikers come each year, the Resource Center and school have tried to adapt to the growing pains. The school loves what the Resource Center does for the community and for the visiting hikers. However, with having unknown visitors on what is technically our campus, the school district hasn’t been compliant with some of the rules that mandate it. California Education Code requires all visitors on school grounds to have a background check. We violate this by having hikers and community members on our school grounds during school hours. The school district also carries insurance, and we violate our insurance when we have hikers camping on our property for any period of time and by having them use our facilities. Finally, having campers on this property is in direct violation of our lease with Warner Ranch. As a school, our top priority is the safety and education of our students. That priority must come first in everything we do. The school does not have a choice and must be compliant with the California Ed. Code, our insurance policies, and our lease agreement. We love the fact that the PCT goes right beside our school and brings thousands of visitors each year to our beautiful area. We are working with the Resource Center and the Warner Ranch to come up with a solution that works for everyone. Until we figure out a permanent solution we have asked the Resource Center to: • Cease allowing visitors during school hours • Cease all overnight camping on the Property; • Cease all commercial activities being conducted by “2 Foot Adventures,” including removal of the related trailer occupying the Property; Cease all open fires and use of cooking stoves on the Property. I have a meeting coming up with officials from the County Supervisor’s office to bring up this issue and hopefully, we can have it resolved soon. We have also been working with the Resource Center and Warner Ranch on other options. The Resource Center will be developing a petition to show how important the resource center and PCT is to our community. Please sign the petition. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to email me or come to Warner Unified and ask for Dave. Sincerely, David MacLeod Superintendent/Principal

Clairification - In last weeks issue of the Julian News (November 13, 2019) we published copies of County Tax bills that highlighted the amounts for the Fire Service fee and the Landscape Maintenance fee. The tax documents used were for a property with two residential structures, and showed a $75 charge for fore, which is $25 more than most home owners would be charged. The Landscape tax was similarly adjusted for the property. We appologize for any confusion this may have caused. Julian News/MjH

From The Supervisor’s Desk

Notes from Supervisor Dianne Jacob Protect your family: The county recently mailed 200,000 disaster planning guides to households in high-risk wildfire areas. These booklets provide critical information on how to prepare for a crisis and how to deal with it once it strikes. They include tips on evacuation, a list of emergency supplies and how to take advantage of programs like Alert San Diego. If you received a guide, be sure to fill it out. It can also be found at readysandiego.org. Helping the vulnerable: The Board of Supervisors has added a new tool in its expanding efforts to help those with chronic mental illness and substance abuse issues. We’re launching a pilot program that will allow the county to name a conservator to oversee treatment and services for those battling co-occurring mental and substance abuse disorders. Our aim is to strengthen the social service safety net for some of our most vulnerable residents. Mental illness and substance abuse are huge concerns in our region and the board action marks our latest step to address them. Great job, Edgemoor: One of the nation’s top-ranked medical care sites, county-run Edgemoor Skilled Nursing Facility in Santee, recently marked its 10th anniversary. County officials, joined by community leaders and residents, recently celebrated the milestone with cake, music and a special tribute to the great, highly dedicated staff at Edgemoor. The 192-bed facility is a huge improvement over the old Edgemoor geriatric hospital and has been consistently been ranked among the top skilled nursing facilities in the U.S. by national organizations and publications.

After learning about decimals and money, with an introduction to percentage, students visited three businesses in town to calculate menus and analyze the use of math in running a successful business. Soups and Such was their first stop, in which the students talked about estimation, ingredient costs, and profit. The next stop was a meeting with Mrs. Dornon, the owner of Miner’s Diner.

Julian Community Heritage Foundation’s Second Fundraiser Is A Success

By Kim Simas

The Julian Community Heritage Foundation (JCHF) held their second fundraiser for the Julian Town Square project on Saturday, November 9, 2019 at the Julian Town Hall. The foundation wanted to provide an opportunity for the community to learn more about the project and connect with JCHF members. Attendees were treated to a presentation that detailed the need for the empty space to be transformed into a town square. A place the community would be proud of and visitors could enjoy for many years to come. The foundation has been working hard to garner the support of the community for the project which will include an amphitheater, landscape featuring native plants and benches for relaxing. With Julian being a tourist town that draws many visitors from other areas in the county and beyond, the foundation would like to see the news of their project shared far and wide. Saturday’s fundraiser included light appetizers, desserts and a selection of beer, wine and hard cider. All items were donated by generous Julian merchants. Musical entertainment was provided by the Bree Jones Band. The new MTeen-Miss Julian Pageant Court assisted in JCHF would like to thank the following merchants for their support: Orchard Hill Country Inn, Jeremy’s on the Hill, Apple Alley Bakery, Wynola Pizza & Bistro, Julian Beer Company, the Bree Jones Band, Nickel Beer Company, Volcan Mountain Winery, Menghini Winery, Julian Grille, Jack’s Grocery and Mountain Spirits Liquor. Without these fine establishments, the fundraiser would not have been such a wonderful success. To learn more about the Julian Town Square project and to donate, visit the foundation’s website at juliantownsquare.com.

She spoke about the balance of setting reasonable prices, while still maintaining high quality food with excellent service. The last stop was JBC, where students were able to calculate percentage using the JBC menu while sitting at a large table. “Taking their learning into the real world makes the math more relevant to the students,” said Mrs. McFedries, the fifth grade teacher. “We can’t thank the Julian businesses enough for supporting education!”

Bringing Communities Together (Family Features) It's important today to find ways to connect with others to help deepen your understanding of those around you. In a time when differences seem to dominate today's culture, it can help to find similarities, draw connections and bridge worlds. From community leaders and organizations to embassies and consulates, cultural events and programs are popping up in communities across the country in unexpected ways. For example, Germany is wrapping up a year-long campaign called Wunderbar Together, a Year of German-American Friendship that was designed to bring diplomacy from Washington's K street to America's main streets. This effort, funded by the German Federal Foreign Office, implemented by the GoetheInstitut and supported by the

have added thousands of new snapshots depicting this friendship - pictures that were taken pretty much every second at more than 2,000 events in all 50 states." The campaign reached 560 communities. On top of the more than 1 million attendees reached in-person, Wunderbar Together also built a multifaceted, strong digital presence that engaged 10.1 million users online and secured approximately 235 million impressions across traditional media and owned social media channels. Events and opportunities that bring together communities and cultures is not unique to this campaign.

Hosted by Brandon Young a Christian comedian based out of San Diego, California who’s been able to use a wide variety of topics ranging from strange observations to growing up in a small town with his weird family and why he despises people who dip French fries into milkshakes, to reach a vast array of people. His intelligently crafted material is a hit with all types of audiences. He can be heard on Pandora Radio and Spotify and seen on Comedy Time TV. He’s also been featured in festivals like the San Diego Comedy Festival, Paul Bunyan Comedy Festival, and Border City Comedy Festival and was a finalist in the Rockstar Comedy Throwdown.

• On Nov. 22, 1718, Edward Teach, also known as Blackbeard, is killed off North Carolina's Outer Banks during a battle with a British navy force. In 1717, Teach took over a captured French merchantman from a retired pirate, increased its armament to 40 guns and renamed it the Queen Anne's Revenge. • On Nov. 20, 1923, the U.S. Patent Office grants a patent to Garrett Morgan for his threeposition traffic signal. By having a third (yellow warning) position besides just "Stop" and "Go," it regulated crossing vehicles more safely. • On Nov. 23, 1936, the first issue of the magazine Life is published. When the original Life folded during the Great Depression, publisher Henry Luce bought the name and relaunched the magazine as a picture-based periodical. • On Nov. 24, 1947, the House of Representatives votes 346 to 17 to hold 10 Hollywood

writers, directors and producers in contempt for refusing to cooperate at hearings dealing with communism in the movie industry. It marked the start of a "blacklist" of names of Hollywood personalities suspected of having communist ties. • On Nov. 19, 1969, Brazilian soccer great Pele scores his 1,000th professional goal. It was a major milestone in a career that included three World Cup championships. • On Nov. 18, 1978, Peoples Temple founder Jim Jones leads 909 of his followers in a mass murder-suicide at their commune in a remote part of the South American nation of Guyana. While many of Jones' followers willingly ingested a poison-laced punch, others were forced to do so at gunpoint. • On Nov. 21, 1986, National Security Council staff member Oliver North and his secretary, Fawn Hall, begin shredding documents that would have exposed their part in a range of illegal activities. When North was fired, Hall continued to sneak documents to him by stuffing them in her skirt and boots. © 2019 Hearst Communications, Inc. All Rights Reserved

My Thoughts

The Julian News 5

by Michele Harvey


by Kiki Skagen Munshi

My Life In The Foreign Service It’s a long way from Julian, but in another life I was a U.S. Foreign Service Officer serving in Embassies in Europe, Africa and India. It was a good life but not always easy. I was caught in crossfire and had an IED go off outside my HMMV in Iraq, a mortar slammed into the Embassy in Sierra Leone (they weren’t aiming at us, we were just in the way but it was loud and scary. Also destructive.), our Defense Attache was blown to bits my first week on the job in Greece and we lived thereafter under their threats to kill more U.S. diplomats, we existed on bi-monthly support flights in the Romanian communist winters and my daughter got malaria at age 8 in Nigeria. There were also the cocktail parties and diplomatic dinners. These were often elegant, sometimes enjoyable, always work. It’s amazing how much schmoozing helps things along in all professions. It was all part of a life where you were on duty 24/7 as long as you were at post. Even the kids knew they represented the U.S. and if they misbehaved it wasn’t only personal, they were disgracing their country. Across the years I worked with many other U.S. Foreign Service Officers. Some were lazy, one or two dishonest (usually those handling money; the rest of us had little opportunity) but most were intelligent, hard-working and always, above all, loyal Americans. We represented the U.S. We were the face of our country. And we were proud of it. It didn’t matter who was President, Republican or Democrat. We might discuss personal political views among ourselves but rarely outside the Embassy and we never publicly disagreed with policy. Ever. Not that we often disagreed with it; if we were effective, we helped shape it. Diplomacy is—or should be—a quiet, behind the scenes profession. We negotiate deals for the U.S., persuade others our policies are good and should be supported. We try to prevent wars from happening. We help U.S. citizens abroad who are in trouble and U.S. businesses working abroad. For many years as the world’s leading democracy we have tried to help other countries develop governments that are better for their people—stuff like free and fair elections, all people equal in the eyes of the law, that kind of old-fashioned democratic governance that people here in the U.S. take for granted and forget the extent to which it’s the underpinning, the basis, of their lives. This week U.S. diplomats, whose numbers are fewer than the band members in the U.S. military and who are usually hidden in a quiet, unseen corner of government, have been much in the news as Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch has testified before Congress. She is a fine officer in a great group of loyal Americans who are on the front lines promoting our national interest and defending our country. Every day. Everywhere. #FSProud.

Vetrans Day At Santa Ysabel

I’ve been sorting through books again. I’m sure that I own hundreds of books and I need to keep giving books to the library and to the thrift store, mostly to the library. I’ve given some paperbacks away. Some I read when I was in college straight out of high school. Last year I reread Martian Chronicles by Ray Bradbury. I’d forgotten how much I enjoyed reading that book. I’ve never passed up an opportunity to read a Ray Bradbury book. I recommend Martian Chronicles to anyone who cares abo ut our earth. I really enjoyed reading it again. Back to my college reading brings me to Stranger in a Strange Land by Robert A. Heinlein. The title comes from the Bible, Exodus 2:22. Moses flees ancient Egypt, where he has lived all his life, and later marries Zipporah: "And she bares him a son, and he called his name Gershom: for he said, ‘I have been a stranger in a strange land’". Quoting from his book is easy because so many quotes from this popular 1961 book are still true today, maybe even more so. For instance, “A desire not to butt into other people's business is at least eighty percent of all human wisdom.” “Jealousy is a disease, love is a healthy condition.” Another Robert A. Heinlein quote that I really like is “Women and cats will do as they please, and men and dogs should relax and get used to the idea.” The Art of Loving by Erich Fromm was popular back then as was anything written by Kahlil Gibran. 1984 by George Orwell turned out to actually be prophetic. Three quotes from Mr. Orwell are “The best books... are those that tell you what you know already.” And “If you want to keep a secret, you must also hide it from yourself.” “Perhaps one did not want to be loved so much as to be understood.” I don’t know exactly when Orwell wrote 1984, but I do remember reading it in the 1960s. I still have some of those books and they are headed out of here. I like reading biographies and I tell Mike so many things that I’ve learned that he probably gets tired of hearing me talk as I read. I read an Eye for an Eye by our friend Mark Jackson. Mark sure knows his history. And Mark knew where to get assistance when he was writing. I remember when he gave me the first chapter to read and I said “Keep going!” I also told him that San Diego County has writer’s groups and he was smart enough to get involved with one. He is now the most popular writer in Oklahoma, where he is from. I read a well written biography of John Wayne. All in all, I consider him one of the good guys. He had people that he liked to surround himself with and they got to be on his movie crews over and over. Our Julian friend Howard Fisher wrote a book about his experiences in the Viet Nam war. I put it in a safe place about a year ago and when I find it I will definitely read it before it hides from me again. I’m keeping a biography of Lyndon Johnson and giving away my copy of a Charlton Heston biography. Besides sorting books, I have been sorting clothes and what my Mom would have called odds and ends. Odds and ends are things that I have no use for and can’t figure out why I have them. I’m sure that the Ramona Food and Clothes Closet will know what to do with them. Since I broke my shoulder two years ago and have had other medical reasons to be sedentary since then, I’ve been getting a large stomach. Some of my clothes don’t look good tight around a large stomach, so those clothes can go away. By the way, I do have some maybe serious medical issues if I don’t pay attention to what I eat and how much exercise I get. However, I feel good. I have complained more than once about our water bed. It is a really comfortable bed to sleep in, but it has been getting more and more difficult for me to get out of it when I wake up, so for my birthday, Mike bought a mattress that sits higher than the rails on the waterbed frame. It isn’t a water mattress. Meantime we have a used, Calking waterbed mattress in excellent condition and a liner still in an unopened box for sale. Call Mike at the newspaper office 760-7652231 if you are interested. I love my husband for the ways that he shows me that he loves me. Have you ever noticed that the people on TV all have uncluttered houses? It doesn’t matter whether they are in a show or in a commercial. Good guys and bad guys all have uncluttered houses! Their houses are all uncluttered. This is why I’m finding new homes for my things that my children won’t want. I’m trying really hard to unclutter. A year and a half before my mother died, she moved from a 5 bedroom house with nearly an acre of land. She had a living room and a family room and had a dining room and a breakfast room. Her new home was a two bedroom one bath condominium. My brother and his family moved into the house that we all grew up in. He told Mom to take what she wanted to keep and leave the rest behind. Most of what she left behind was given away and yet she kept the oddest things. When she died, living in her Condo, my sister and I went through her things in her Cedar Chest, what would have been called a Hope Chest when Mom was a young woman. We were in our 50s when Mom died and in that Cedar Chest was a receipt book for our babysitter in the very early 1950s. Dad had died in the Korean War and Mom had to go to work. Even though Mom only lived in her Condo for a year and a half, it took three of us children to sort through her things. We decided what each of us wanted to keep, what we wanted to sell, and what needed to be given away. I don’t want my children to go through a really lengthy process of dealing with my things when I die, so these days I am sorting. These are my thoughts.

Understanding Medical Sharps and Safe Disposal Options (Family Features) If you're among the millions of people in the United States who suffer from a chronic illness, you may use "sharps" to manage your medical condition at home or on the go. For example, many people with diabetes self-inject at least two insulin shots every day, and conditions including allergies, arthritis, cancer, infertility, migraines and psoriasis, among others, may also require the use of a sharp to administer medication. A medical term for devices with sharp points or edges that can puncture or cut skin, sharps may be used at home, at work and while traveling to manage medical conditions. Examples of sharps include: * Needles - fine, slender, hollow pieces of metal used to inject medication under the skin * Syringes - devices to which needles are attached in order to inject medication into or withdraw fluid from the body * Lancets, also called "fingersticks" - instruments with a short, twoedged blade used to get drops of blood for testing * Auto injectors, including epinephrine pens - syringes pre-filled with fluid medication designed to be self-injected into the body * Infusion sets - tubing system with a needle used to deliver drugs to the body * Connection needles - needles that connect to a tube used to transfer fluids in and out of the body However, disposing of those medical sharps safely may be a

Kenneth (Kenny) Alan Smith July 8, 1963 - November 8, 2019

It has saddened our hearts, and has filled our eyes with tears as Kenny has been called to the heavens to his next journey. It has also left us so very blessed with the time to be with him and know him, allowing us to experience his drive to a great life. Kenny passed to his next journey very peacefully at his home with his family near him. Kenny battled brain cancer for many years, defying the odds over and over allowing for the precious time to be with his family and friends, the time that flies by all too soon. Kenny began his life defying the odds from the very beginning when he blessed his parents upon his birth in the car, just couldn't wait and didn't need doctors or a hospital before he hit the ground running. Kenny lived a full life, his pride and joy was his family, and while this part of the journey has physically ended for him, for his family and for his friends, he has moved on leaving all fully blessed with his memories and the knowledge that he passed to us all. As a child, Kenny was a natural at horsemanship, showing and winning awards for his riding skills. As he grew to become a young man, a husband and a father, he was always ready to build and mechanic a pickup, jeep, bronco, you name it. He was western and cowboy at heart. He shared his passions and taught his knowledge of mechanics, rodeo, ranch and western cowboy to his sons, daughters and nephews. He had a true love and respect for hunting, enjoying many hunting journeys for deer, elk, pronghorn sheep, an occasional coyote or other pesky varmint; all while passing the skill of safe gunmanship and hunting. Kenny was a skilled leather craftsman, often tooling with leather or building a saddle. Kenny was an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Julian where he had been a Sunday school teacher for many years. Kenny leaves behind his high school sweetheart and wife Sheri along with their children, Lige with his wife Julia and granddaughter Taylyn; Drew with his wife Heather and grandson coming soon; Amanda with her husband Kanoi and granddaughter Lilia and Grandson Kanoi; and Caitlin with her fiance Bryce; his parents Bill and Dorothy Smith, his mother and father-in-law Frank and Janet Taylor; his brothers Stuart; Jeff with his wife Beverly; and Greg with his wife Lisa; sisters-in-law, brothers-in-law and many, many nieces, nephews, and great-nieces and great-nephews. Services were held to honor Kenny on Saturday, November 16th at 10am at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Julian. Bonham Bros & Stewart Mortuary and Cremation Service is assisting the family.

concern. In fact, in interviews conducted by SafeNeedleDisposal.org with sharps users, people who use needles and lancets to manage their medical conditions believe it is their responsibility to dispose of sharps safely, but lack clear, factual information on how to do so. Existing information does not always personalize disposal guidelines for people in every state or locality. continued on page 13

basic, traditional Thanksgiving menu for almost 35 years now. But in the past few years, our children have grown up, married and now have families of their own. Our tastes have changed, and our lives are more hectic. So what’s a Diva to do? I’ve decided to create a new family Thanksgiving tradition with a schedule and menu that fits our lifestyle ... and you can, too! I’m starting to look at specific dates for holidays as suggestions, not the rule. It’s unbelievable how that simple decision has freed me from stress and allowed me to relax and enjoy the holidays with the people that I love most. First, we’re no longer celebrating our family Thanksgiving on Thursday. It’s too difficult and stressful to get our large, multigenerational family together at the same time on Thanksgiving Day. In order to make everyone

happy, some family members were traveling from one city to another to eat multiple Thanksgiving dinners at various times. It’s hard to be thankful if you’re bloated and stressed out from fighting traffic all day. To resolve this problem,

we’ll have individual Thanksgiving dinners and then gather on another day for our family celebration. Second, it’s easier for our family to get together on Sunday afternoons, so that’s the day we’re continued on page 12

Faith and Living

Pastor Cindy Arntson

We tend to think that family relationships are easier, better and longer lasting than other relationships. We should give thanks when that is true because very often it is not true. Those we love the most can be the ones who hurt us the most. The reality is that maintaining strong family relationships takes consistent, intentional effort. Relationships survive because we decide to care for them and invest in them. They survive because we give and receive forgiveness. Without being forgiven, we can be burdened by guilt. If we don’t forgive, we will be burdened by pain, anger, bitterness, or desire for revenge. In the Bible in the book of Colossians, it says, “Bear with one another and if anyone has a complaint against another, forgive each other.” It is very easy to have complaints. The people in our families are not perfect. Our spouses make mistakes. Our children are not angels. Our parents are flawed human beings. We all have our quirks and bad habits. We leave undone the things we should do and do the things we ought not do. It is easy to have complaints but it can be helpful to just ignore or overlook some things. A woman celebrating her golden wedding anniversary was asked the secret of her long and happy marriage. She said, "On my wedding day, I decided to make a list of ten of my husband's faults which, for the sake of the marriage, I would overlook." When asked what faults she had chosen to overlook, she replied, "To tell you the truth, I never actually made that list. But whenever my husband did something that made me mad, I would say to myself, ‘Lucky for him that's one of the ten on the list.'"

But there are bigger things that hurt too much to ignore or overlook, hurts that keep on hurting. There are some things that we just can’t accept. When we are hurt in this way, there are two common responses. We either seek justice or we give mercy. If the person who hurt us doesn’t ask for mercy, we are likely to seek justice. Justice can be obtained by giving a hurt or withholding a blessing. If we get into keeping score and seeking justice, it won’t be long before the love, trust and joy of the relationship is gone. One way out of this negative cycle is if the person who is doing the hurting recognizes what they’ve done, feels genuine remorse, asks for forgiveness and makes changes. All four of those elements are important: recognize, remorse, confess, and change. Another way out of this cycle is to offer forgiveness before it’s requested. We can decide that forgiveness is necessary for both of our sakes. Forgiveness is an opportunity to let go of disabling anger or resentment or selfrighteousness. These strategies will help with small and medium sized hurts but big hurts, such as abuse, addiction, betrayal and infidelity, take a lot more work to forgive. Even with forgiveness, the relationship may not survive these wounds. Our closest, most intimate relationships weren’t designed to carry significant hurt on an ongoing, long-term basis. Forgiveness does not require reconciliation. You can forgive the abusive parent without resuming the relationship or making yourself vulnerable to abuse again. A wife might forgive her husband for hitting her and still press charges against him. Forgiveness may make reconciliation possible but only if both people work on the

necessary changes. Forgiveness is neither minimizing the wrong nor excusing the person who committed the act. Condoning is when you say, “He really didn’t mean to hit her, and it didn’t even leave a mark.” Forgiving is not condoning. Forgiving is not simply forgetting. A healed memory is not a deleted memory. But forgiving can create a new way to remember. Remembering empowers compassion and support for others in similar situations. Forgiveness requires a conscious decision to move on. We forgive when we are ready to move toward a future free from a painful past that we cannot undo. Forgiving others tends to be easier for those who have been forgiven. Forgiveness arises from humility, not arrogance. It arises from recognizing the darkness in our own hearts and cherishing the forgiveness given to us.

Have you ever heard of Pi? I don’t mean the apple or pumpkin kind! I’m talking about the Pi used in math. Pi is a number. It’s the number you get when you divide the “line around” the outside of a circle by the “line going across” the middle point of the circle. Pi is the same for every circle! Pi is the number 3.14159...the numbers to the right side of the decimal point never end – they go on and on forever. Even supercomputers have not found the last number in Pi.

Happy Thanksgiving, Everyone!

By The Julian Library Book Buying Committee Last summer the Julian Friends Book-Buying Committee suggested to our new librarian, Josh Mitchell, that it might be time to survey local patrons on how they use the library. Josh helped us update the questionnaire we used in 2005, just after our new library opened. The county library system has changed in the fourteen years since then. It is now easy to check out books in audio and electronic versions in addition to the centuries-old printed format. We have a huge collection of videos in DVD and BluRay video. In July the Julian Library distributed the updated questionnaires to library users. We received a gratifying 46 responses by Labor Day, our deadline. The questionnaire asked how people choose titles, what media and subjects they prefer, and which authors or titles they would like us to add. Our goal was–and is–to make sure that library users can find the materials they want on our shelves. The best news for book lovers is that 39 of the 46 respondents said that physical books are the most important library medium for them. DVD’s were the #2 choice. Many people come to use our computers and enjoy our varied public programs. In response to our question about how people choose titles, the number one answer was “browsing the shelves,” closely followed by “recommendations from friends” and “reading/ hearing reviews.” The number one category was fiction, and nonfiction categories ranged widely across the board. Many people suggested favorite authors and titles. Although it is always possible to request books from other libraries in the county system, a quarter of our respondents said they do not do so. Thus it remains important for us to have our own well-stocked shelves with a wide variety of titles. New books, CDs(Audio Books and Music), and DVDs arrive frequently. If you don’t find what you need, please ask. We are proud that our local library has become a well-used and vital community center. The Friends work closely with our excellent staff to make the library the best it can be. We welcome comments and suggestions at any time.

Kids: color stuff in!

material welfare, but also for the welfare of society at large. In short, a guy who believes it’s his job to help others. Alan G. Hassenfeld is a thirdgeneration Hassenfeld brother and much of the energy and spirit behind the toy company giant Hasbro. G. Wayne Miller, author

of the true-life business suspense story “Toy Wars,” now brings us “Kid Number One,” a thorough narrative of the Hassenfelds, the toy conglomerate they built, and its abundance of international kindness. Hasbro is not just a manufacturer of games and toys. Miller’s latest book makes that clear. The history of the company that brought us G.I. Joe, Transformers, My Little Pony, and of course Mr. Potato Head is a testament to an America fueled by immigrants. Driven from Europe as teenagers during the First World War, brothers Henry and Hillel Hassenfeld came to the U.S. fleeing societal unrest, unmitigated hatred, and pogroms which slaughtered thousands of Jews. Like other Jews before them, they settled in the lower east side of Manhattan and struggled to make enough

Solution page 12 money to eat. Their first venture was rags. Literally, rags. How they got from rags to Mr. Potato Head is only part of the story. “Kid Number One” indeed chronicles Hasbro’s history, faceoffs with its fiercest competition, and the painful stories of toys that didn’t succeed. Alan never wanted to be CEO of anything. He was happy traveling the world. But when he became part of the company, he found he could build a corporate atmosphere of ethical professionalism and familial loyalty while making enough profit to do what he wanted to do more than anything: spread goodness around the world. It’s hard to do justice to the Hassenfeld brothers’ philanthropy. After the hurricane that devastated Puerto Rico, Alan flew doctors, nurses, and 11,000 pounds of food, water,

clothes, and medications to the ravaged island. He brought many of the sickest Puerto Ricans back to the mainland for treatment. He helped build the Bamboo School in Thailand and provided scholarships for needy children. He supported the Mechai Viravaidya Foundation there, to improve the lives of people in remote rural villages. He helped refugees from Europe and Asia start productive lives in the U.S., supported the Afghan Women’s Development Centers, and established a Day of Global Joy at Hasbro where employees were encouraged to go do acts of charity. Perhaps the jewel in the crown is the Hasbro Children’s Hospital in Providence, RI, an architecturally designed building with children’s needs and imaginations as the focus. “Kid Number One” is a business

‘Adam Style’ Settee

The auction described the settee as "in the Adam taste," but an online search for the words won't explain what that means. When it says "Chippendale style" in a catalog, it means it is a reproduction made long after the original pieces designed and made by Thomas Chippendale in the 18th century. "Adam taste" is even more confusing. There were two Adam brothers who died in the 1790s. Their work is now called the "style of the Brothers Adam" or "Adam style." It was popular in the late 1760s. The brothers designed the building, then designed and made all the furnishings, including fireplace

mantels, fixtures, fittings, carpets and, of course, furniture. The look spread to Scotland and Russia, and inspired Federal style in the United States. The brothers admired and adapted the classical designs of Greece and Rome. They wrote a book with their engraved designs, which made their ideas available to everyone. Pastel color combinations of green,

Caned arms, back and seat make this settee a little different. It was made in the 19th century in the “Adam taste.” Neal Auction Co. in New Orleans sold it for $1,250.

Can you tell us anything about it and its worth? It's certainly a keepsake! A: Popeye first appeared in 1929 in a comic strip called "Thimble Theatre." The character and the comic strip were created by Elzie Crisler Segar and distributed by King Features Syndicate. Popeye became a hit with readers and is still a popular character. He has appeared in comic books, cartoons, a full-

length movie featuring Robin Williams as Popeye, on a postage stamp, and on toys and novelty items. The Popeye doorstop was made by Hubley Manufacturing Company, which was in business in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, from 1894 to 1965. The date on your doorstop is the copyright date for the character, not the date it was made. Popeye collectibles are sought after and bring high prices. The value of your doorstop is about $2,000 if the paint is in good condition. *** CURRENT PRICES Peters & Reed vase, brown, green, vines, column shape, 12 inches, $15.

® Dear EarthTalk: I’ve heard of suicide, homicide and genocide, but what is ecocide? -- Leslie P., Carrboro, NC While the concept of “ecocide” may be new to many of us, the practice of willfully destroying large areas of the natural environment has been around about as long as humans — although we got a lot better at it using the machinery we developed during the industrial revolution. Bioethicist Arthur Galston first started batting the term around in the 1970s to describe intentional widespread ecological destruction, especially as it pertained to ruining inhabited environments so people couldn’t live there anymore. One classic example of ecocide in modern history is American troops’ widespread application of the toxic herbicide Agent Orange across Southeast Asia during the Vietnam War in the late 1960s. It was used to clear some 12,000 square miles of tropical rainforest to enable flushing out the “enemy,” despite the toll on civilians and the environment. There are also plenty of presentday examples, including: mountaintop removal coal mining Scottish barrister and activist in Appalachia whereby miners Polly Higgins led the charge to get blast through hundreds of feet "ecocide" recognized as a "crime of earth to access thin seams of against peace" by the International coal; the “fracking” for oil and gas Criminal Court. Credit: Elevate Festival, FlickrCC. across wide swaths of Canada’s Alberta tar sands that has so far destroyed thousands of square miles of boreal forest and peat bogs while releasing hundreds of tons of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere; the dumping of crude oil and toxic waste into Ecuador’s Amazon by oil companies too focused on profits to do the right thing about waste removal; and deep sea mining whereby the use of heavy machinery to ply veins of precious metals from the seabed is ruining marine ecosystems we still know little about. In recent years Scottish activist Polly Higgins championed the cause of getting the International Criminal Court (ICC), an independent judicial body created by the United Nations in 1998, to recognize ecocide as a “crime against peace” in the eyes of international law. Her work focused on getting the ICC to add ecocide as the fifth prosecutable “core international crime” (along with genocide, crimes against humanity, war crimes and crimes of aggression). Sadly, Higgins succumbed to cancer at age 50 in April 2019, but her efforts to institutionalize ecocide as a major international crime lives on with other activists. “Destroying the planet is currently permitted,” says Jojo Mehta of the non-profit Stop Ecocide. “That is how ecosystems are being destroyed every day by dangerous industrial activity, exacerbating the climate emergency and destroying our forests, our soils, our rivers and the lands that we love.” Mehta points out that any of the 122 member states of the ICC can formally suggest adding ecocide as a major international crime. Stop Ecocide is working with small Pacific island nations which are already “feeling the sharp end of climate change” to urge ICC to finally adopt ecocide as another crime it prosecutes. “Serious harm to the Earth is preventable,” urges Mehta. “When government ministers can no longer issue permits for it, when insurers can no longer underwrite it, when investors can no longer back it, when CEOs can be held criminally responsible for it, the harm will stop.” CONTACTS: Arthur Galston’s “An Accidental Plant Biologist,” plantphysiol.org/content/128/3/786; International Criminal Court (ICC), icccpi.int; Stop Ecocide, stopecocide.earth.

(NAPSA)ÑThe 2020 Farmers’ Almanac predicts “yet another freezing, frigid, and frosty winter for two-thirds of the country.” The good news is, homeowners don’t have to choose between staying cozy and eco-conscious. Today’s innovations make it easy to enjoy both with “smart” home climate control technologies and advanced heating systems created to achieve maximum energy efficiency and comfort. So, how do you select a home heating solution that is Earth- and financially friendly? Following are some useful tips and practical information to guide your journey: Smarten Up Your Home Climate Control When it comes to smart home temperature control, there are Smart HVAC Systems and Smart Thermostats. Smart HVAC systems have built-in Internet capability and can be controlled directly without additional equipment. Smart Home Thermostats create ÒsmartÓ systems by enabling remote temperature control via a mobile or Internet-connected device or voice-operated home automation system. Several leading manufacturers, including Fujitsu General America, offer Smart Systems as well as a Thermostat Converter, which can control their single and multi-zone Halcyon and Airstage heating and cooling systems using a third-party thermostat. Fire Up Efficiency, Cool Down Costs Up to 25 Percent Upgrading your system and installing a smart home thermostat can significantly reduce your utility expense. The most energyefficient heating and cooling products on the market, ductless minisplit systems, can save as much as 25 percent on your energy bill. Further, an efficiently controlled thermostat could save an additional 10 percent a year. Here’s how ductless mini-split systems work: Thin copper tubing is used to pump refrigerant from an outdoor compressor directly into an indoor air-handling unit, where the air is quietly distributed to the interior space. This eliminates the need for basement or attic evaporators and bulky, expensive duct-work. Mini-splits are easy to install and usually require only a 3- to 4-inch hole through a wall or ceiling to connect the indoor and outdoor units. Heat Up Customization, Even in Extreme Cold Take control of your comfort. Most HVAC manufacturers offer apps that enable systems to be controlled from anywhere using a mobile device. Now, voice-control capability uses digital assistants, such as Amazon Alexa, to verbally dictate home temperatures: “Alexa, set the living room temperature to 70 degrees.” For instance, Fujitsu offers a free FGLair app that enables Web-activated control via mobile devices and now voice-activated control via Amazon Alexa or Google Home. Built for optimal customization, ductless mini-split systems let you control the individual temperature in each room, so you don’t waste money cooling unused spaces such as guest bedrooms, bonus rooms, sunrooms and basements. Ductless systems operate at much higher efficiency levels than central forced-air systems and window units, as duct losses in a central AC system can account for more than 30 percent of your energy consumption. What’s more, the comfort continues even in extreme cold weather. Fujitsu’s Extra Low Temperature Heating (XLTH) Series features outdoor condensing units engineered to operate in temperatures down to -15°F, lower than any other mini-split available today. The smart home revolution has empowered homeowners with the latest home cooling systems and smart technology to create the perfect storm of cost and energy efficiency, and personalized comfort. Many Fujitsu systems with the Energy Star rating are more than twice as efficient as the minimum standard set by the government. To learn more or find a contractor nearby, call (888) 888-3424 or visit www.constantcomfort.com or www.fujitsugeneral.com. You can enjoy comfort at home and the comforting thought that you’re helping the environment, with a smart heating and cooling system.

3 Tips For An Eco-Friendly Holiday Season (StatePoint) On average, there has been an astonishing 60 percent decline in the size of populations of mammals, birds, fish, reptiles and amphibians in just over 40 years, according to the most recent World Wildlife Fund (WWF) Living Planet Report, and the top threat to species is human activity. Adjusting holiday traditions to be friendlier toward the planet -- as well as the people and animals who rely on a healthy environment to survive -- can be a meaningful way to spread goodwill during the season. Here are three ideas for doing so: Waste Not Wasted food represents about 8 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions and is a main contributor to deforestation and the depletion of global water sources. Shopping for foods grown and raised sustainably can reduce the footprint of your holiday menu. You can green your holidays further by reducing your plastic consumption. It’s projected that by 2050, the total amount of plastic waste in the oceans will weigh more than all fish, and 99 percent of seabirds will have ingested plastics. Shop with reusable tote bags and opt for gift wrap and décor made only from sustainable materials.

Give Gifts That Give Back When you make a donation this holiday season, consider giving gifts that help protect nature, such as those found on WWF’s online gift center, For animal lovers, WWF’s wildlife-themed gifts are a good choice. Symbolic species adoptions, are educational and fun. There are more than 100 species available, ranging from favorites like sloths, elephants, tigers, pandas and polar bears, to new offerings like the ladybug, gentoo penguin and hawksbill turtle bale. All symbolic adoption donations made through the gift catalog come with an adoption certificate, as well as a color photo and description card of the adopted species. Adoptions of $55 or more come with a soft animal plush of the adopter’s choosing. Other gift selections include unique socks, featuring flamingoes, tigers, wolves, hedgehogs and more, t-shirts and sweatshirts, elephant slippers, animal puppets and panda bobbleheads. For more information, call 1-800-CALL-WWF or visit worldwildlife.gifts. Fundraise Throwing a holiday bash? Deck the halls with purpose by combining your entertaining efforts with a fundraiser dedicated to protecting the environment. For example, with WWF’s Panda Nation campaign, you can turn any special occasion into an opportunity to protect threatened species and wild places around the world, while raising awareness about important issues. By making small changes to your favorite holiday traditions, a joyful and rewarding holiday season can go hand-in-hand with helping wildlife and nature thrive.

Notice Of Legal Changes To California Mattress Recycling Program

Program Expanding, Futons Subject to Recycling Fee as of Jan. 1, 2020 As of Jan. 1, 2020, futons will be added to the mattress recycling program in California and will be subject to recycling fees. The $10.50 fee and recycling obligations apply only to the futon mattress, not to the futon frame or base. This change is a result of Assembly Bill 187 (AB 187) signed into law by Gov. Gavin Newsom on Oct. 10, amending California’s Used Mattress Recovery and Recycling Act (SB 254). AB 187 expands the definition of “mattress” to include futons. As a result: - Manufacturers and retailers of futons that are registered with the Mattress Recycling Council (MRC) must update their company profiles at MRCreporting.org if they manufacture or sell futons to any California end user. - Manufacturers of futons that are not registered with MRC but that manufacture or sell futons to California end users must register their brands and Uniform Registry Numbers (URNs) at MRCreporting.org. - Retailers that are not registered with MRC but sell futons to California end users must register at MRCreporting.org. - Retailers must collect a recycling fee of $10.50 on each futon sold on or after Jan. 1, 2020 to any end user in California. Retailers must remit collected fees to MRC monthly. - Futons will be accepted at MRC recyclers as part of the California program beginning Jan. 1, 2020. In addition, AB 187 requires that distributors of mattresses (including futons) to retailers or other sellers that will ultimately be sold to California end users must register with MRCreporting.org as a “distributor” or update their existing profile to include this information by Mar. 1, 2020. AB 187 will also require that effective Jan. 1, 2021, any party that sells mattresses (including futons) to end users in California and delivers them by common carrier must offer to pick up a used mattress for recycling from that consumer at no additional charge within 30 days of the delivery of the new mattress (unless the used mattress is contaminated and poses a risk to personnel, new products, or equipment). To register or update your registration, visit MRCreporting.org. For more information, contact MRC at info@mattressrecyclingcouncil.org or 1-855-229-1691. The Mattress Recycling Council (MRC) is a non-profit organization formed by the mattress industry to operate recycling programs (known as Bye Bye Mattress) in states that have enacted mattress recycling laws – California, Connecticut and Rhode Island.

Why Raise Property Taxes When Revenues Are Way Up?

by Jon Coupal

During this past summer there were dozens of media stories about big increases in property tax revenues. Orange County was typical. The taxable value of real estate went up $33 billion to over $600 billion. Assessments increased in all of Orange County’s 34 cities. Further north, San Mateo County saw a 7.1% increase in its assessment roll for 20192020, the ninth consecutive year of increases. County Assessor Mark Church, in a press release, said there was record growth in commercial and mixed-use development which helped to push the total roll value to a new high. Other counties showed similar gains: Santa Clara County, up 6.79% to $516 billion; Sacramento County, up 6.53% to $179 billion; Alameda County, up 7.13% to $321 billion; Fresno County, up 5.84% to $90.46 billion; and even Sonoma and Napa Counties saw big increases in assessed values notwithstanding losing over 5,600 structures to the horrific fires of 2017. All told, statewide assessable property is now worth $6.5 trillion with just last year’s increase resulting in $75 billion in revenue, a 15-fold increase since 1978. All these increases belie the argument advanced by progressives that Proposition 13, which limits increases in taxable values and caps the property tax rate at one percent, has somehow “starved” local governments and schools for revenue. While Prop. 13 has been successful in its primary mission of allowing people to stay in their homes, it has scarcely limited the growth of government due to big tax revenue increases from all sources. (California has the highest income tax rate in America as well as the highest state sales tax rate and gas tax). The huge increase in property tax revenues since 1978, a result of high property values and new development, renders California a relatively high-tax state even with Prop. 13. We rank 17th out of 50 states in per capita property

tax collections. All this compels a simple question: With property tax revenues at an historic high in California with consistent yearover-year increases, why would we even consider tax hikes? And yet that is precisely what the powerful public labor interests which feed off of taxpayer dollars are now attempting. They are proposing to strip Prop. 13 protections away from owners of business properties with their “split roll” initiative. That proposal, entitled the “California Schools and Local Communities Funding Act of 2020,” is currently in the signature gathering phase, facing a midApril deadline to secure nearly one million valid signatures. As for the stated justification for higher taxes, there is a fake reason and a real reason, neither of which is particularly compelling. The fake reason is that government needs the additional funds for critical programs. Given the inordinate amount of existing revenue coupled with waste in government, taxpayers would rather see elected officials prioritize the revenue we already give them. But the real reason, which the unions backing this initiative don’t like talking about, is to expand the pay, benefits and pensions they already receive. Split roll proponents are well aware that this reason is very unpopular with voters, many of whom can only dream of the Cadillac compensation packages our public employees receive. For those who foolishly believe that the split roll proposal only concerns commercial real estate and making businesses pay their “fair share,” the proponents of the measure have made it clear that their ultimate objective is the full dismantling of Prop. 13, even for homeowners. So if the question is how much more can taxpayers afford to pay, the proponents’ response is simple: How much do you have? *** Jon Coupal is the president of the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association (HJTA).

For example, Marine veteran Bobby Barrera had been in Vietnam for only six weeks when a massive explosion rocked his vehicle, causing severe burns over 40 percent of his body and leaving him without a right hand or left arm. While his family marks the anniversary of the day—Sept. 16, 1969—every year, Barrera says, “My real Alive Day was when I married my wife, who gave me a renewed reason to live.” With her support, he went back to school and they started a family. He also found meaningful work with DAV, helping other veterans and their families. Another Vietnam veteran, Jim Sursely, thought only of sports as a teenager—football, baseball and basketball. But while driving

Marine veteran Bobby Barrera was severely injured in Vietnam but 50 years later, he celebrates being alive and with his family. down the street in his Minnesota hometown, he saw a sign that read, “Uncle Sam Needs You.” Sursely went to see an Army recruiter and three months later, was inducted into the military. A year into his service, Sursely stepped on a landmine, immediately losing both his legs and left arm. After accepting and adjusting to life as a triple amputee, Sursely moved to Florida, where the new construction business brought more accessibility and

opportunities in real estate. Today, he and his wife run their family business and he is one of the top real estate professionals in the area. Sursely is proud to say that he enjoys life with his four children, 12 grandchildren, and three great-grandchildren. And he continues to honor his Alive Day and looks forward to celebrating his 51st next year.

celebrating Thanksgiving as a group from now on. We’ve also decided to celebrate my birthday and my mother’s birthday on that Sunday, since they both fall a few days before Thanksgiving. Third, we’re trying a new menu this year. As we’ve gotten older, our health issues and dietary preferences range from glutenfree to diabetic to vegetarian. So, move over green bean casserole with mushroom soup and canned fried onions! Goodbye sweet potatoes with toasted marshmallows! There’s a new list of modern, flavorful dishes waiting in line to become the go-to side dishes for our nonThanksgiving Thanksgiving! And last, but not least, some Thanksgiving traditions will never change, no matter how untraditional our Thanksgiving holidays will be in years to come. We’ll still stand in a family circle, join hands and thank the Lord for each other and all our blessings. My daughter gives everyone a thank-you card with a handwritten note that I treasure each year. My oldest sister will bring the corn dish that everyone loves and that we only get during the holidays. And I’ll make a diabeticfriendly, gluten-free sweet potato cheesecake that will become a new holiday tradition that we can all enjoy! So, Happy Thanksgiving everyone, and try something new this year, like this delicious recipe for sweet potato cheesecake.

SDG&E Looks to Add Another 2,000 EV Chargers to the Region

Proposal Calls for Extending the Power Your Drive Program to Meet Customer Demand, Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions and Improve Air Quality. To meet customer demand for more electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure in the region, San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E) recently submitted a proposal to the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) to install 2,000 additional chargers at apartments, condominium complexes and workplaces – locations where most charging takes place. The proposal seeks to extend SDG&E’s Power Your Drive (PYD) Program, which installed more than 3,000 EV chargers at 255 locations. If the CPUC approves SDG&E’s proposed PYD Extension Program, the company would install chargers at approximately 200 locations over two years. “Our customers are telling us that they want to see more electric vehicle chargers where they live and work, and we’re enabling customers to save money by charging their vehicles at the right time — when renewable energy is high and demand on the grid is low,” said Estela de Llanos, vice president of clean transportation, sustainability and chief environmental officer at SDG&E. “By building more EV chargers, we are not just meeting customer demand and managing the grid more efficiently, we are also supporting state mandates to accelerate clean transportation, reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve air quality.” California has committed to reducing greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs) by 40 percent below 1990 levels by 2030 and 80 percent below 1990 levels by 2050. The state has found that widespread transportation electrification is required to achieve that target as the transportation sector is the largest contributor to GHG emissions, accounting for more than 40 percent of all GHGs in the Golden State, according to the California Air Resources Board (CARB). To reduce transportation-related GHGs, California has set a goal to have 5 million EVs on the road by 2030. SDG&E’s proportion of that target is 500,000. This level of EV adoption requires a rapid expansion in charging infrastructure. Today, the San Diego County-southern Orange County region served by SDG&E is home to about 47,000 EVs. EV adoption is particularly challenging for those who live in multi-unit housing because they don’t have an easy way to plug in. Fifty percent of SDG&E’s customers live in multi-unit communities. Without access to vehicle charging, there is virtually no way for these residents to ever become part of the solution to significantly reduce air pollution or to save money by fueling with electricity instead of gasoline. SDG&E’s initiative will help address infrastructure gaps in the market and ensure charging is accessible to all customers. The CPUC approved SDG&E’s PYD Program as a four-year pilot in January 2016. It was a first-of-its kind program for the region. PYD focused on encouraging EV adoption by reducing cost barriers and providing access to charging for underserved customer segments. Within two years, the pilot was fully subscribed, and customers continued to add their names to the interest list. Today, the interest list includes several hundred properties and organizations looking to have EV charging infrastructure installed on their property by SDG&E. The PYD Extension Program will help meet some of the existing customer demand for charging infrastructure while the state continues to develop more comprehensive guidance on how and where to deploy widespread transportation electrification. Over 30 percent of the chargers installed under the PYD pilot are in communities of concern – areas that suffer from high levels of air pollution and tailpipe emissions due to their proximity to freeways or industrial facilities. SDG&E surpassed its original goal of 10 percent installation in those areas by more than three times. Similar to the pilot program, the Extension Program will provide design, engineering and construction of the chargers for property owners at low or no cost. Customers can enjoy a special rate structure that incentivizes them to charge during hours when electricity supply, including renewable energy, is plentiful and energy prices are low. California has led the way in de-carbonizing electricity in recent years, helping to pave the way for the modernization of the transportation sector. With SDG&E’s energy portfolio being made up of approximately 45 percent renewable energy and no coal contracts, EV drivers plug into one of the cleanest electric grids in America. Furthermore, with a special rate encouraging drivers at Power Your Drive sites to charge during times of day when solar power is at its peak, customers literally drive vehicles powered by sunshine. In fact, Power Your Drive customers charge on average with 78% renewable energy.

SDG&E is an innovative San Diego-based energy company that provides clean, safe and reliable energy to better the lives of the people it serves in San Diego and southern Orange counties. The company is committed to creating a sustainable future by providing its electricity from renewable sources; modernizing natural gas pipelines; accelerating the adoption of electric vehicles; supporting numerous non-profit partners; and investing in innovative technologies to ensure the reliable operation of the region’s infrastructure for generations to come. SDG&E is a subsidiary of Sempra Energy (NYSE: SRE). For more information, visit SDGEnews.com or connect with SDG&E on Twitter (@SDGE), Instagram (@SDGE) and Facebook.

Medical Sharps and Safe Disposal continued from page 5

" SafeNeedleDisposal.org helps people in the United States make sense of safe sharps disposal options nearest to their home, work or wherever is convenient," said Larry Ellingson, vice president of the National Diabetes Volunteer Leadership Council. "This resource is much needed for people who regularly use needles to manage health conditions like diabetes and want to do the right thing with their used sharps." According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, sharps not disposed of properly may cause injury. Consider these three steps for safe and proper sharps disposal: 1. Place used sharps in an FDA-cleared sharps disposal container or a strong plastic container such as an empty laundry detergent or bleach bottle. 2. Seal the container with duct tape and label it "do not recycle." 3. For most sharps users, place the sealed container in the household trash, never the recycling. A resource like

SafeNeedleDisposal.org can be used to look up local disposal guidelines by ZIP code. For states that do not allow household disposal, the website provides ZIP code-specific information on convenient drop-off locations that will accept used sharps. For more information on safe disposal of sharps, visit SafeNeedleDisposal.org. There is a disposal location at the Sheriff Station here in Julian.

Help Keep The Warner Springs Community Resource Center Doors Open

The Warner Unified School District (WUSD) board of directors has notified the Center’s board of directors that hosting Pacific Crest Trail (PCT) hikers on the school property where the Center is located is not in compliance with San Diego County of Education's Joint Power Authority and the California State and Education Code. WUSD has now disallowed camping, overnight parking, restroom usage and more. Such restrictions to our lease with the school would have a drastic impact on the Center's much-needed funds derived from the hikers' donations and purchases. The substantial income loss would jeopardize the Center's ability to provide its Food Bank, meeting and emergency meeting facilities and other activities that benefit our local, rural community. Additionally, PCT thru-hikers depend on the Center for respite from the elements, the facilities to "tidy up," resupply and first aid items, local resource information, recharging, rides to medical facilities and other critical services. Several solutions are being discussed with the school board and the Warner Springs Ranch Resort who owns the property. Your signature will show your support of the Warner Springs Community Resource Center and the many vital health and human services that the Center provides – services that are critical to the core well-being of our rural residents and PCT hikers alike. <https://www.change.org/p/local-residents-and-pacific-cresttrail - pct- hiker s - help - keep -the - war ner- spr ings - c ommunit yresource-center-doors-open-b0ec8c67-48ad-4c5b-a568-735b38e146b4?fbclid=IwAR3zNhn-S3s8xksVzci36mttrjGHSoq5NqFNcE OIZRxFFuNX5ZY6KAt8p54>

moments like Chinese New Year and food festivals in cities like Chicago exploring everything from Polish to Puerto Rican delicacies. If you're looking for ideas to introduce your family to other cultures, keep an eye out for opportunities like these in your own community: Cultural festivals and traveling exhibits. Events that celebrate the traditions of a particular group, country or region take place all over the country. Cultural festivals and traveling exhibits can provide a unique perspective on a specific subject and offer the opportunity to sample traditional foods, hear unfamiliar languages and observe games or demonstrations for various crafts and skills. For example, the Wunderbar Together PopUp Tour combined a culture tent with mobile presentation modules and various flexible pop-up edutainment elements. Programs ranged from business conferences, science slams, art exhibits and concerts to interactive, student-focused events. Guests got to taste authentic German food, watch live streams of Germany's premier professional soccer league, learn from a deckedout WanderbUS equipped with German language activities and get immersed in the arts and sciences through events like "Science is Fun" and Circus Mojo workshops. You can expect to

learn a great deal about a culture while you see and experience it first-hand. Museums. A more formal setting like a museum offers a wealth of information with displays, artifacts and often a deep look at the history of a subject, such as a historical event, location or population. Museums continually update their collections, and new programs and lectures can help give you insight into new artists, cultures and traditions. For example, a new exhibition at the New Museum in New York City, "Hans Haacke: All Connected," is one way to experience the work of a German artist in the United States. In addition to identifying museums that pique your interest in your own community, be sure to look into museums you might be able to visit when you're traveling for business or pleasure, as well as rotating installations through museums' temporary exhibit spaces. Historical landmarks. All over the world, there are landmarks dedicated to explaining pivotal moments in history and the ways these events affected the people and communities nearby. Some landmarks are as basic as a monument on the side of a highway while others are entire buildings dedicated to explaining the impact of a single event or series of events. Monuments and historical landmarks can also serve as public convening areas and place for events. For example, to kick off the Year of GermanAmerican Friendship, four-time break-dance world champions

from Berlin, The Flying Steps, held a special performance at one of the nation's most iconic landmarks: the Lincoln Memorial. The "b-boy" crew combined break-dancing with the music of Johann Sebastian Bach for a one-of-a-kind performance in the nation's capital. Restaurants and food trucks. Food may be the way to win over someone's heart, but it's also a way to understand another culture. Learning about traditional dishes and customs surrounding such an essential aspect of daily life can give you a strong sense of the values and a literal flavor for an unfamiliar lifestyle. The explosion of food trucks, many of which offer traditional foods from countries around the world,

provide opportunities to sample food you may never have had access to before. Some food trucks are even designed to do just that - such as the Wiesn in a Box truck that is part of the Wunderbar Together campaign, which is a Bauhaus-themed pretzel and Hofbräu beer cart that sets up a mobile Oktoberfestinspired beer garden in cities across the country. Performance arts and film. Artistic expression can be found among virtually every community. From theater and dance to art gallery shows and musical concerts, there's essentially no shortage of ways to connect communities through the arts. Attending shows or watching films that emphasize cultural education and celebrate diverse perspectives can help open your mind and teach you about new subjects or cultures. Film festivals are a way to experience new types of movies and directors, such as the annual German Currents Film Festival that has become a fixture on the cultural calendar in Los Angeles and is known for screening films from Germany, ranging from arthouse films to blockbusters and children's matinees to late-night movies.

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) A rejection of your attempt to be friendly leaves you with two choices: Try again, or give up. If you want to make another effort, go slowly. Let things develop without pressure. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) It could be a problem dealing with unfamiliar people who do things differently from what you're used to. But rely on that strong sense of purpose to get you through this difficult period. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) To avoid neglecting a personal matter because of a demanding new workplace schedule, start prioritizing immediately. Knowing how to apportion your time takes a little while to set up. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) It won't be easy to avoid some of the pressures that come with change. Best advice: Take things a step at a time, and you'll be less likely to trip up while things are in a chaotic state. LEO (July 23 to August 22) A much-talked-about workplace change could be coming soon. Be sure to get all the details involved in the process, and once you have them, you can decide how you want to deal with it. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) You might still believe that your trust was betrayed, although the facts would appear to prove the opposite. But by the week's end you should learn something that will help set the record straight. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Holiday plans could be a challenge because of shifting circumstances. But a more settled period starts by midweek, allowing you to firm up your plan-making once and for all.

SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) The facts continue to be on your side. So make use of them in dealing with any challenge to your stated position. Also, open your mind to the offer of help from an unlikely source. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) There could still be a communication problem holding up the resolution of a troublesome situation. Stay with it, and eventually your message will get through and be understood. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) A possible change in your workplace schedule might create a chaotic situation for a while. But once things begin to settle down, you might find that this could work to your advantage. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) A recent joblinked decision might need to be reassessed because of the possibility of finding benefits you might have overlooked. Check out all related data to help in the search. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) A personal situation you agreed to might not be as acceptable to the other person involved in the matter. Avoid pressuring and bullying. Instead, seek common ground by talking things through. BORN THIS WEEK: You have a gift for touching people's minds as well as their hearts. You would make an outstanding educator. © 2019 King Features Syndicate, Inc.
