1. Set a routine or a schedule, even if it’s loose It might be tempting to let teenagers sleep in or let younger kids have some TV time before getting to work, but you’ll have a better chance of keeping your children focused if you establish a routine that resembles what they’re used to. For example, create a daily schedule that emphasizes academics in the morning, quiet reading time for a midday break, and hands-on or outside projects in the afternoon. 2. Find a calm place to work Your kitchen table may become the new command center. But some kids will do as well studying at a desk in their room, or even on the couch. As long as the space is comfortable and relatively distraction-free, it’s a good place. Some kids focus better when listening to music. If you play music, pick something instrumental, with no distracting vocals, and don’t let your child crank up the volume. And don’t be afraid to remove screens from their line of sight: TV, video games and social media will likely get in the way of concentration, even if that’s how they’re used to doing their nightly homework. 3. Tackle the harder stuff first! “Starting with the most difficult assignments first helps make the most of your child’s energy level and focus at the beginning of a work session,” writes learning specialist Janine L. NierodaMadden about homework time. The same goes for learning at home. If your child’s teacher has assigned work, prioritize that. If things have been left a little more open-ended, here are some ideas for filling in the gaps. • Each day choose a different worksheet packet (math, reading, science, and writing). • Have your child learn new vocabulary words. • Check out Khan Academy, a free online tool for teaching math (and other subjects, too). To get started, go to “Math by grade” and choose your child’s grade to start. The site assesses and teaches as your child works her way through problems, so she can get more help with concepts she still needs to work on and jump ahead when she has mastered a lesson. • Newsela.com helps students with reading comprehension by offering current, kid-friendly news stories written for gradespecific reading levels from elementary school all the way through high school. Your child may already be familiar with the site, and if so, he may have a class login. If not, you can sign your child up for free. • For an academic break you could check out the YouTube channel of best-selling novelist John Green (The Fault in our Stars) and his brother Hank, which covers history and science topics along with a lot of current events. • For the late afternoons, Common Sense Media is a great place to find science and history documentaries that dive deep into a topic. continued on page 10 ESTABLISHED

Hello Julian! Speaking for the Elementary School and Jr. High, I want to provide some context for the way students are learning during this COVID-19 crisis and social distancing period. Our schools are taking this health threat seriously. While we desperately miss being with our students, we know we have done the right thing by following the guidance of the State and the Health Department. How are our students continuing their formal education? A blanket prescription for distance learning isn’t well suited when you have student ages from pre-K through 8th grade. One of the wonderful things about working here is that our staff has a lot of freedom to make personal decisions to do what’s best for individual students and their families. Younger students, and their parents, tend to want more paper-pencil packets while older students are more adept with digital classrooms. Most teachers are utilizing Google Classroom and intelligently using live video resources, such as Zoom. Many of our teachers also have special YouTube videos. Teachers also have “office hours” daily. The Julian teachers and staff have stepped up in a way that is characteristic here; we adapt well in adverse situations. I think this is why Julianites are weathering this storm calmly and in a calculated fashion. Students and teachers are communicating daily and completing work with disciplined structure. We have continued with our food service program for students and without interruption. Meals for students are available Monday through Friday at the high school location as well as a daily desert run serving Shelter Valley and Butterfield Ranch. Employee Sam Johnstone not only enjoys delivering meals but brings materials and devices to and from those desert regions. Trish Rott and Marie Cayton prepare and serve over a hundred meals a day! All students who have need for a laptop or iPad are being

provided for. Last week we had two days of pick up at school for packets, iPads and laptops. We have been available to personalize service for families that cannot be at school during regular business hours and will continue to be so. One of our challenges is unequal access to internet. This is not unique to Julian, unfortunately. Distance learning

works well when students are in daily classes with their teachers, but multiple family members and limitations upon internet access are hinderances to equitable access. My desire is that our nation addresses this situation in the near future. Julian Pathways is also doing all they can to support our families. Children's diapers and food are being delivered weekly,

in addition to being available for individual needs, including counseling services! Facebook and Instagram are great resources to get daily information and outreach. My Instagram is principalcopeland and Mr. Duffy’s is supeduffy. We try to post daily, and Julian Pathways, Inc. as well as Julian Union Parent Teacher Organization are reliable resources on Facebook. Parents can also leave us a voicemail at 760-765-0661. We get those voicemails forwarded to our email. And remember; We are ALL in the together, for the children.

Home Learning Guide During School Closure

The deadlines to FILE and PAY federal income taxes are extended to July 15, 2020. Eligible individuals with adjusted gross income up to $75,000 for single filers, $112,500 for head of household filers and $150,000 for married filing jointly are eligible for the full $1,200 for individuals and $2,400 married filing jointly. In addition, they are eligible for an additional $500 per qualifying child. For filers with income above those amounts, the payment amount is reduced by $5 for each $100 above the $75,0 0 0/ $112,5 0 0/ $15 0,0 0 0 thresholds. Single filers with income exceeding $99,000, $136,500 for head of household filers and $198,000 for joint filers with no children are not eligible and will not receive payments. The IRS urges taxpayers to be on the lookout for scam artists trying to use the economic impact payments as cover for schemes to steal personal information and money. Remember, the IRS will not call , text you, email you or contact you on social media asking for personal or bank account information – even related to the economic impact payments. Also, watch out for emails with attachments or links claiming to have special information about economic impact payments or refunds. For security reasons, the IRS plans to mail a letter about the economic impact payment to the taxpayer’s last known address within 15 days after the payment is paid. The letter will provide information on how the payment was made and how to report any failure to receive the payment. If a taxpayer is unsure they’re receiving a legitimate letter, the IRS urges taxpayers to visit IRS. gov first to protect against scam artists. People who filed a tax return for 2019 or 2018 No additional action is needed by taxpayers who: have already filed their tax returns this year for 2019. The IRS will use this information to calculate the payment amount. haven’t filed yet for 2019 but filed a 2018 federal tax return. For these taxpayers the IRS will use their information from 2018 tax filings to make the Economic Impact Payment calculations. People who aren't typically required to file a tax return Social Security and Railroad Retirement recipients who are not typically required to file a tax return need to take no action. The IRS will use the information on the Form SSA-1099 and Form RRB-1099 to generate Economic Impact Payments of $1,200 to these individuals even if they did not file tax returns in 2018 or 2019. Recipients will receive these payments as a direct deposit or by paper check, just as they would normally receive their benefits. Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) recipients are also part of this group who don't need to take action. For Social Security, Railroad retirees and SSDI who have qualifying children, they can take an additional step to receive $500 per qualifying child. There are other individuals such as low-income workers and certain veterans and individuals with disabilities who aren’t required to file a tax return, but they are still eligible for the Economic Impact Payments. Taxpayers can check the IRS. gov tool - Do I Need to File a Tax Return? - to see if they have a filing requirement. The IRS will soon provide guidance for these individuals on the steps to take to get their payment as soon as possible.

Recently we have all been sent into what seems like hiding. This to a ten year old girl seems strange, when one minute she was playing with her friends, to the next minute where she couldn’t go to school. America is changing. Covid-19 is affecting us all. It is especily hard on us kids. Right now I am stuck at home, and the only time I get to see my teacher, or my classmates is during Zoom meetings. Most of my work is either online, or in packets. I know that my single Dad, and my Nana, and grandparents are trying very hard to make this situation the best it can be. When we deliver this paper, we are doing it for our grandparents who own Julian News. Last week when we were delivering the papers we pulled into AM PM, and I saw this guy holding this sign up that sayed,” WHAT THE WORLD NEEDS NOW, IS LOVE SWEET LOVE “ I told my dad I wanted to go tell him he was darn right. So thats what I did, my Dad even got a picture. Later on that day we saw him at Albertsons, and he stoped to tell me that I had made his day. When he said that to me, It made my day. That sign gave me more hope that we were going to get through this together, and that I was going to get to see my friends, and teachers again. Say Safe, And Strong.

One of us was recently informed that our writing could be more uplifting and to post more optimistic features. That’s a difficult order, especially during a world-wide pandemic that threatens unseen from every corner, surface and breath we take. And then our Viking ancestors were not particularly enamored with social distancing, particularly their own. They had been a little grumpy since a series of epidemics called the second Bubonic plaque pandemic killed half of Eurasia’s population in the 700s. That was a novel bacterium. Previously, in the 500s, the Scandinavian peninsula had experienced a three-year total blackout of the sun from the lingering dust of a volcanic eruption thousands of miles away in the tropical Caribbean. This event nearly killed them all by starvation and severely challenged their survival and tribal alliances, leading eventually to some exploration beyond their island-restricted boundaries that you may have heard about. Happiness to modern Vikings is longer days and a festival during the summer solstice. Letters continued on page 11

3 Technologies To Help You Feel Connected To Far Away Loved Ones (StatePoint) When it’s not possible to be near loved ones, being connected becomes more important. Here are three technologies to feel closer to friends and family, wherever they may be: Stream in Sync Streaming services like Netflix are introducing new features allowing users to watch programming in sync with their friends. Whether it’s the latest episode of your favorite reality game show or a movie you’ve all been excited to see, now you can host a virtual movie night or watch-party and share your reactions to the show in a realtime chat room. Keep the Time A globally-minded timepiece can help you feel more connected by displaying the time of where your friends and family are located. And the Casio Edifice EQB1000 is especially informative. The watch’s main dial and date display “Home Time” (the time and date in the current location), while an inset

dial at 3 o’clock displays “World Time” (the current time in over 300 major cities) in a 12-hour format. Its operations are easily managed via a connected smartphone, and its “Phone Finder” feature causes your phone to sound a tone even if it’s in silent mode. Workout, Together Have a gym buddy or workout partner who is suddenly remote? New tools can help you motivate one another and stay fit together, even if you are far apart. Some of the latest stationary bikes and treadmills on the market now allow you to connect to classes and coaches in realtime and have features that allow you to enjoy realistic city and countryside scenery as you sweat. Join the same class as a friend and compete against each other, or take a virtual tour of a city together. Thanks to new technologies, the world doesn’t need to feel so big. Embrace the tools that let you feel close and connected.

What's Happening At The Library? Not much, in fact, nothing at all. Our librarian, Josh Mitchell, recently informed Friends that all programs are cancelled through August. No word yet on when the library might re-open. As volunteers who love books and reading, we miss our library, its staff, and our bookstore. Use the SDCL.ORG website for e-books, audio books, magazines, etc., with the Libby app and Lynda.com for courses in learning. Get an e-card for digital access. Once again, thank you to members and visitors who attended the Annual Meeting on Leap Day. What good fortune it was to be able to go ahead with After Hours at the Library and Tastings in the Stacks before the world skewed sideways. As of March 28 there are 226 Friends members, up from last year. Friends' donations help with the purchase of EXTRA materials and fund programs for all. The bequest from Jan Cornell Mattias will be used for the new community room as furnishings and equipment will be needed. Good News - though we did not know at the Annual Meeting, Dianne Jacob announced at the Chamber Installation Dinner that our library would receive an expanded community room in this next budget year. More and more libraries have become community centers where residents can come together, enjoy activities, and have meetings. Keep in mind that was before Covid-19 and the expenses that the County will incur. Stay hopeful! If you use social media, follow and like us on Facebook: FOJL Friends of the Julian Library and Instagram: FOJL Friends of Julian Library. Frequent updates are posted. Kudos to our Friends in the Julian Woman's Club who have been making face masks! Be well.

County Recognizes Achievements In Public Health

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

During one of the most challenging public health crises in the world, the County will be honoring several people and organizations for their achievements in improving the health and well-being of San Diego area residents. National Public Health Week, sponsored by the American Public Health Association, takes continued on page 8

SAN DIEGO, April 8, 2020 – With the coronavirus pandemic causing financial hardships for many individuals and families in the region, San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E) is encouraging those in need to apply online for bill discount programs, which can save them 30% or more off their monthly utility bill. SDG&E offers bill discount programs to support customers yearround. Many people who previously could not take advantage of these income-based programs may now be able to do so due to lost wages. Those who recently lost their job, even if they are receiving unemployment benefits, may also be eligible for CARE and FERA. California Alternate Rates for Energy (CARE): Provides a 30% or more discount on monthly bills. Qualification is based on participation in certain public assistance programs or household income as of today. No additional documents are required to apply. Family Electric Rate Assistance (FERA): If a customer doesn’t qualify for CARE, they may qualify for FERA, which provides incomequalified households of three or more with a reduced electric rate (18% discount) on their monthly bill. In order to raise awareness on these programs, SDG&E launched a robust marketing and public outreach campaign, which will also promote LIHEAP or the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program. LIHEAP is federally funded and helps low-income households with their energy bills. The program is overseen by the California Department of Community Services and Development (CSD) and administered by nonprofit agencies that have funding available continued on page 8

5 Great Ways To Celebrate Earth Month (StatePoint) Want to go green while practicing social distancing? Here are a few ideas to consider: • Maximize your time at home by planting a garden. Not only will the plants you grow help to reduce carbon dioxide in the Earth’s atmosphere, but you’ll also be creating a healthy habitat for birds, insects and other small critters. Plus, if you plant vegetables, you can reduce your carbon footprint by reducing the amount of food you need to purchase that was shipped long distances. • Your home theater is likely more important to you these days then ever before, making it a good place to start when making eco-friendly home upgrades. Consider a mercury-free projector with a hybrid laser and LED light source, which removes the need for hazardous bulbs. With a long bulb life of 20,000 hours, selecting a Casio’s LampFree projector is one upgrade with a lasting impact. • You don’t need to spend a lot of time or money to substantially improve your home’s energy efficiency. Take an afternoon to swap out the incandescent bulbs in all your light fixtures and replace them with LEDs or another energy-efficient alternative. • Get outdoors and enjoy nature using wearable tech like the PRT-B50 Pro Trek Watch, which can help steer you through a solitary hike. With Quad Sensor technology, you will know the direction, weather, temperature and altitude at the touch of a button. In addition, an accelerometer keeps track of your steps and calories burned. The Bluetooth-enabled watch connects to an app that will also record your location into memory so you can find your way back. • Learn more about environmental causes and get involved remotely. Many organizations host online petitions, which are shared directly with policymakers. This is a great way to have your voice heard on issues that are important to you. With a bit of creativity, you can show the planet some love in a socially-responsible way.

Protecting Your Financial Health In These Uncertain Times

(StatePoint) With expected delays in bill payments, unprecedented layoffs, hiring freezes and related hardships, many Americans are facing new financial challenges. “COVID-19 has impacted all industries and individuals from all walks of life,” says Rod Griffin, senior director of Consumer Education and Advocacy for Experian. “With all of these rapid changes, you might not be thinking about how your credit report may be impacted yet, but you likely will soon.” As you adapt to life in this unprecedented time, the experts at Experian are sharing strategies and resources for protecting your financial health and credit history. • Check your credit report. While checking your credit report regularly is always a good idea, this is especially true now. You can get a free copy of your report from Experian every 30 days with a free account. In addition, you can get a free credit report from each of the three national credit reporting agencies annually by visiting annualcreditreport.com. • Maintain your score. Making credit payments on time and infull and keeping your utilization rate (balance-to-limit ratio) as low as possible are the best ways to maintain your credit score. At a maximum, you should try to keep your credit card balances below 30 percent in total and for each individual card. For many reasons, maintaining these habits might not be possible right now. However, paying your minimum monthly payments and anything additional you can afford will go a long way. • Talk to your lenders. Keep in mind, lenders don’t want you to fall behind on your payments any more than you do. If you’re facing trouble making monthly payments, contact your lender or creditor. They may have options for helping you cope with COVID-19-related financial hardships. For example, lenders can place your accounts in forbearance or deferment for a period of time. • Use credit as a financial tool. While debt is a problem, credit can be a financial tool that can help improve your overall financial health in the long run. As always, avoid making rash decisions when it comes to credit and your financial health. • Check out resources. Use new educational resources that can help you protect your financial health in these uncertain times. For example, Experian is hosting a series of #CreditChat conversations surrounding COVID-19 on Wednesdays at 3 p.m. ET on Twitter. The program covers important personal finance topics. The next several #CreditChats will be dedicated to items like methods and strategies for bill repayment, paying down debt, emergency financial assistance and preparing for retirement during COVID-19. You can also visit Experian’s blog post, “COVID-19 and Your Credit Report,” for updated information pertaining to how COVID-19 may impact your creditworthiness. Additionally, the “Ask Experian” blog shares immediate and evolving resources on its COVID-19 Updates page. To obtain a free Experian credit report and other free services, enroll at Experian.com. While staying safe and healthy should be everyone’s number one priority, it is also important to protect your financial health at the same time. Be sure to leverage all the resources available to you that can help you emerge from this crisis in good financial standing.

My Thoughts by Michele Harvey

Another Week Of Staying At Home We’ve come this far and we can keep going. One thing I’m doing that I shouldn’t is that I’m staying up way too late on my computer’s internet. I look things up. I look people up. I read and I read. I may look up one person and see references to other people and away I go. Before long I’ve read biographies of five or ten people. Saturday nights we watch movies on KPBS. We never know ahead of time what the movie will be and we are never disappointed. This past week we watched The Buddy Holly Story. I knew that he only played his music for about a year and a half before he died and I knew that his last concert was in the Surf Ballroom in Clear Lake, Iowa. Since I’ve been there and stood out front I can tell you that the auditorium doesn’t look anything like the one in the movie. It’s flat. It doesn’t have a lot of steps leading up to the door. It looks the same as it did in 1959. As the story goes, the band’s bus broke down and they had to get to Fargo, North Dakota for their next gig. Buddy wanted to do his laundry before going on stage, so he, Richie Valens and the Big Bopper (Jiles Richardson) got in the plane at the Mason City airport during really bad weather. That night, February 3rd, 1959, the plane crashed before it left the airfield. The reason it crashed still isn’t known. If you know where to look, you can find memorials and a plaque dedicated to them all, even a set of oversized eyeglasses that look like Buddy Holly’s glasses. All aboard were killed, including the pilot Roger Peterson. Buddy Holly’s wife heard about it on the news and consequently miscarried their baby. In later years, Don McLean wrote and sang “American Pie” The Day the Music Died about that plane crash. The name of the plane was Miss American Pie. See how much we can all learn if we sit long enough? On these rainy days reading a good book with a cup of hot cocoa next to me and an afghan around my legs is a good idea too. I used to read books and then tuck them back into my book cases for future times to read them. I’m not doing that anymore. I’m sixty-nine years old and rather than reread books I want to explore new books, so once I’ve read a book, if it is still in really great shape, I put it in a box for my local library. If it isn’t quite perfect, I put it in a box so I can give it to a thrift shop. I have a few antique books too and I need to find someone who would be thrilled to get those. This is a good time for making jams and marmalade. With the house so cold, heating it up for hours with good aromas makes me feel better about staying home. Last spring I pitted and chopped up both red and yellow plums. Now I am ready to make plum jam. This week I got a great deal on a bag of four large lemons which I will use to make orange marmalade. I few nights ago I looked on amazon. com for canning jars. The prices were unbelievably high. A dozen half pint jars with seals and rings cost over $26.00. Since my son was driving to Ramona today, I asked him to check the price at True Value next to Albertson’s. There, a dozen half pint quilted jars cost $12.99. He bought plain jars which is what we like to use. They cost $9.99 per dozen for the half pint size jars with seals and rings. We like to put our jams and cranberry relish in half pint jars to sell at church, and any odd sizes that we have we put applesauce in because we like to eat that. My friend Ingrid makes wonderful chunky applesauce and lets me keep the jars. I can’t sem to get enough of Ingrid’s applesauce. I recently heard someone say that people don’t can food anymore. They sure are wrong. When it’s hot I chop my fruits and when it’s cold I turn them into sauces, jams and breads. Yes, I skin my yams and sweet potatoes, cut them into chunks, boil them, drain them, cool them, mash them and then I measure them usually 2 cups per bag, and seal them into zip lock bags. By doing this I can either take out a bag for dinner, to make a pie or to make sweet potato bread. With more and more rain flooding our yards and our stay at home orders in place, this is a good time to look behind your refrigerator to see how much vacuuming needs to be done, pull your stove out if you can to see what may have dropped behind it and you can move your microwave oven to clean under, behind and next to it. Other projects that may or may not interest you would be to get your children or grandchildren to help get all of the pots and pans out of the cabinets. Match pans to lids and put any left overs in a box for a thrift store. This kind of project would also be good for sorting out plastic containers and lids and then move on to baking dishes. I often say that I never get bored and now you know why. I would do just about anything to avoid the things I really need to do, like paperwork. So I keep busy. At least mentally I keep busy. At night when I should be falling asleep, I’m planning all of the activities that I will do the next day. Most of those projects don’t get done because I’ve forgotten them by the time I finally fall asleep. At least my heart is in the right place. Now it’s 2:00a.m and it’s time for me to go to bed and plan tomorrow. Good night, These are my thoughts *** There's always been some concern that adult subject matter should be quarantined from a page that attracts children.

EAST OF PINE HILLS

by Kiki Skagen Munshi

So...

It’s Spring! The great old cherry is in bloom and time, perhaps, to see if A.E. Housman is still relevant, a century on and still counting, SO: Loveliest of trees, the cherry now Is hung with bloom along the bough, All right, that pretty well describes the old cherry, although some would say apple blossoms are prettier. And stands about the woodland ride Wearing white for Eastertide. Well here a bit of a problem. The time is right—Eastertide—but “woodland ride”? Maybe in England but here you usually ride along open areas. Too many branches and such in the woods, what wood are left after the Golden Oak Borer, that is. Still… not really a big deal. Now, of my threescore years and ten, Twenty will not come again, WAIT A MINUTE!!! While we will admit that twenty isn’t in our future, “threescore years and ten” adds up to seventy which, well, you know…we don’t need to go into DETAILS but it this isn’t the lifespan we …anyway. Scratch that verse. And take from seventy springs a score, It only leaves me fifty more. The arithmetic is correct but the underlying objection remains. And since to look at things in bloom Fifty springs are little room, Agreed. About the woodlands I will go To see the cherry hung with snow. Okay, we’ll ignore the “woodlands” bit and go admire the cherry tree. You might want to as well.

Blackball Box

A blackball box and marbles used in Ohio in the early 1900s was auctioned at Garth’s for $500. The box had machine-made dovetailing and was decorated with decoupage prints in painted frames. As early as the 17th century in America, members of fraternal clubs often voted at their meetings without paper ballots. Decisions often required a simple majority, but sometimes had to be unanimous: Just one "no" vote could scuttle a project. So, they

The Julian News 7

used a blackball box instead of paper ballots. Each person was given a random number of black and white marbles. To vote no, a black marble was dropped in the box. The box had a board that covered the voter's hand and marble so that no one could see the vote. Each marble made a noise when it was dropped, so only one marble could be used. When the box was opened, it was easy for everyone to see the number of black marbles and if the project, motion or request for membership had passed or failed. It was impossible to tell who had used a black marble. The term "blackballed" is still in use, and the box was saved as part of history. The rules are still in "Robert's Rules of Order," a guide to parliamentary procedure, but there are few times when only one vote, not a majority, is needed. An old blackball box used by the Odd Fellows fraternal order was sold at a Garth's auction recently for

$500.

*** Q: I have a light bulb that I have identified as an 1885 HeislerBernstein incandescent lamp. Does it have any value? And if so, where would I find a buyer for such a bulb? A: Antique and vintage light bulbs are classified as "early technology," an area of collecting that includes electrical apparatus, astronomical devices and medical instruments. Artificial lighting is significant, since its beginning in the 1880s marked the lengthening of the workday and other changes in everyday life. Yes, there are collectors who hunt for early incandescent light bulbs, especially early carbon filament ones from the 1880s to early 1900s with intact filaments, like yours. Some early bulbs bring high prices; a few have sold for over $5,000. Charles Heisler and Alexander Bernstein both owned businesses in the 1880s

and early 1900s that developed bulbs and lamps, and their work was influential in making electric lighting practical and popular. Look for an auction house that specializes in early technology or scientific instruments. The website www.bulbcollector.com also has information. *** CURRENT PRICES Stoneware rolling pin, salt glazed, cobalt blue stenciled wildflowers, turned wood shaft & handles, 16 inches, $60. Hooked rug, cat resting on striped cushion, flower & leaf border, American, 1860-1930, 30 x 52 inches, $150.

Every year we put our heads together to share new ideas and ways we can keep our environment clean on a daily basis.

Making the planet greener can start on your side of the fence. (NAPSI)—The 50th anniversary of Earth Day on April 22 can be a good time for everyone to take some time to get outside, even if current conditions mean a community event to celebrate isn’t available. Fortunately, there are plenty of ways to honor the Earth in your own backyard. “You don’t need to leave home to celebrate Earth Day. Remember, nature starts at your back door,” explains Kris Kiser, President of the TurfMutt Foundation, an organization that encourages outdoor learning experiences, stewardship of green spaces, and care for living landscapes for the benefit of all. “Get outside, mow your lawn, trim bushes, plant a butterfly bush. By becoming a steward of your yard, you are helping the planet. At the same time, you’re supporting your health and wellbeing, which is increasingly important as families spend more time at home.” What You Can Do Here are six tips to celebrate Earth Day without ever leaving home: 1. Get outside. Your backyard is an outdoor living room and safe place for pets and kids to play. Science proves spending time in your family’s yard is good for your health and wellbeing, and so important today as everyone looks for creative ways to stay well while being confined to the home. Researchers have found that people living in neighborhoods with more birds, shrubs and trees are less likely to suffer from depression, anxiety and stress. 2. Make the outdoors a family project. Take your loved ones outside to assess your space. What’s working well? What could be improved? What can you plan to do together in your backyard? Anything needing to be cleaned up? Make a plan to expand or spruce up your yard. 3. Connect kids to nature. Free, online, do-at-home lesson plans are available from the TurfMutt. com. The environmental education program resources and activities, based on STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) principles, give kids the prompts they need to have fun learning about and exploring the nature and science in their own backyards. 4. Know your climate zone. Learn about climatezone-appropriate plants, the importance of pollinators, and how backyards can support local wildlife. Conduct a plant inventory to determine what’s currently thriving in your backyard. Match that up against the USDA Plant Hardiness Zone Map to determine the best types of turf, trees, shrubs, and plants for the climate zone.  5. Keep pollinators in mind. Your yard is an important part of the connected ecosystem providing much- needed food and shelter for pollinators, such as birds, bees, butterflies, bats, and other creatures. Select a variety of plants that will bloom all year long. The Audubon Society’s database can help determine which birds will be attracted to which plants for unique regions so you can make good choices about what to plant.  6. Plant, prune or mow. Staying confined to home base doesn’t mean gardening and yard work have to stop. Order garden supplies online or have them delivered from a nearby nursery. Mow the lawn and trim bushes.  Research shows people who gardened for at least 30 minutes a week had lower body mass indexes (BMIs)—a measure of

With the help of her team of students, Quintana identified the San Ysidro port of entry as a source of the pollution. A study led by Quintana demonstrated that people waiting in the pedestrian line to cross at the port of entry absorbed carcinogens found in diesel exhaust into their bodies.

California Commentary

Pension Bomb Fuse Just Got Shorter

by Jon Coupal

Homeowners have enough to worry about in the current coronavirus crisis. They face an April 10 deadline for the second installment of their annual property tax bill and there is no relief — yet — coming from either the governor’s office or the majority of county treasurer/tax collectors. Many taxpayers have been furloughed or laid off and the chances are high that property values throughout America will take a hit — even in California. How could things possibly get worse? Here’s how. The coronavirus crisis and the damage it inflicts on the state’s economy has exposed the Potemkin village of the state’s actual financial condition. For the last several years, we’ve been told that the “California Miracle” has left the state flush with a surplus of tens of billions of dollars. But that surplus will be quickly depleted because of the unexpected demands that the crisis brings. Even more troubling is the impact on California’s debt balance, which is a mountain compared to the molehill of surplus revenue. And the bulk of that debt is in the form of unfunded pension obligations. Fiscal watchdogs have been warning about this for more than 40 years only to be ignored by our elected leadership, whose cozy relationship with publicsector unions makes even modest pension reform nearly impossible. For example, this column back in 2018 warned, “California’s pension crisis exists in large part due to the very nature of definedbenefit plans. Unlike definedcontribution plans, where the taxpayers’ obligation to each public employee ends with every pay period, defined-benefit plans depend on a projection of future investment returns. Therein lies the problem. California has been horribly wrong in its application of assumed rates of return, leading to hundreds of billions in unfunded liabilities. This shortfall is occurring in good economic times when the state of California is relatively flush. A recession will quickly expose this short-sighted thinking.” Similarly, other organizations such as the Reason Foundation

and the California Policy Center have raised the alarm for decades about the unsustainability of our pensions systems. David Crane, a research scholar at Stanford and president of Govern for California, makes the excellent point that, even without a stock market crash, California would still be in trouble: “Too many people incorrectly believe that pension costs increase only when stock markets decline, but pension costs would rise even if the stock market never declined. That’s because pension liabilities grow at the discount rate employed by pension funds for reporting obligations. Because California’s pension funds discount pension liabilities at the same high rate at which they hope pension assets will earn, the state’s pension liabilities grow very fast.” Crane’s point is that even if the stock market rebounds, the problem won’t go away “because pension spending in California crowds out services at all times. E.g., the stock market quadrupled from 2009 to 2019 but state pension spending more than doubled over the same period, and that doesn’t count billions of supplemental payments authorized by elected officials.” California would be on a much more solid financial footing if our elected leadership paid more attention to the advocates, academicians, think tanks and journalists sounding the alarm on the inevitable pension disaster. Only a handful of electeds, such as Sen. John Moorlach, R-Costa Mesa, are demanding action. But perhaps politicians are already fully aware of the problem. It’s just that they willfully ignore it because they don’t wish to anger the labor interests that support their political careers. In some action movies there is a ticking time bomb about to go off. When the clock runs out, there is usually a second of silence before the explosion. Will the current crisis spur legislators to start taking the pension crisis as seriously as the COVID-19 crisis? We doubt it. But either way, the bomb is ticking. *** Jon Coupal is the president of the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association (HJTA).

Dear EarthTalk: Can our pets get sick from the coronavirus too, and can they pass it along to people? -- J.M., Bridgeport, CT Given that Covid-19 probably originated in bats means that it’s no surprise that the dreaded virus can pass between animals and humans. But when a four-year-old Malayan tiger at the Bronx Zoo tested positive for Coronavirus recently (and six of his peers showed similar symptoms), it sent shock waves across the United States, especially in the two-thirds of American households with pets. Zoo officials report that the tiger started getting sick on March 27 after exposure to a human handler who later tested positive for Covid-19. (The zoo has been closed to the public since March 16.) While the sick tigers are expected to recover fully, the spread of the infection beyond humans is worrisome to not only pet owners but also to those of us concerned about the health of the planet’s wildlife and biodiversity, which is already teetering on the ropes given the onetwo punch of habitat loss and climate change. And if tigers can get it, what about house cats? What about dogs? “There have been reports outside the U.S. of pet dogs or cats becoming infected after close contact with contagious people, including a Hong Kong dog that tested positive for a low level of the pathogen in February and early March,” reports Jennifer Peltz for the Associated Press. “Hong Kong agriculture authorities concluded that pet dogs and cats couldn’t pass the virus to human beings but could test positive if exposed by their owner.” The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) concurs that it’s not our pets we should be worrying about, as the pandemic is spreading as a result of human-to-human transmission thanks to our coughing, sneezing and even just talking. “There is no reason to think that any animals or pets in the United States might be a source of infection with this novel coronavirus.” But CDC nevertheless recommends staying out of contact with pets if you have contracted the virus (or if you suspect you have it). “Although there have been no reports of pets becoming sick with COVID-19 in the United States, it is still recommended that people sick with COVID-19 limit contact with animals until more information is known about the virus,” warns CDC. “This can help ensure both you and your animals stay healthy.” If you are sick, CDC recommends trying to get other people to take care of your animals until you’re all better. And if that’s not possible, minimize contact with your pets (especially petting, snuggling, kissing or licking, and sharing food) and wash your hands before and after your interactions. “If pets go out and have contact with an infected person, they have the chance to get infected,” reports Li Lanjuan, an epidemiologist with China’s National Health Commission, adding that a pet who has been exposed to Covid-19 should be isolated just like any human who has shown symptoms or tested positive. “In addition to people, we should be careful with other mammals especially pets.” CONTACTS: “Can Dogs Get Coronavirus,” akc.org/expert-advice/ news/can-dogs-get-coronavirus/; Coronavirus and pets: How COVID-19 affects cats and dogs, cnet.com/how-to/coronavirus-and-pets-howcovid-19-affects-cats-and-dogs/; CDC’s “If You Have Animals,” cdc.gov/ coronavirus/2019-ncov/daily-life-coping/animals.html.

Their effort launched a global change in the way athletes with physical challenges are perceived and how they perceive themselves. For 26 years, the Challenged Athletes Foundation has empowered life through sports for a population at-risk due to their chronic and permanent disability. It provides opportunities and support to people with physical challenges so they can pursue active lifestyles through physical fitness.

Caring For A Cloth Face Covering?

It’s a good idea to wash your cloth face covering frequently, ideally after each use, or at least daily. Have a bag or bin to keep cloth face coverings in until they can be laundered with detergent and hot water and dried on a hot cycle. If you must re-wear your cloth face covering before washing, wash your hands immediately after putting it back on and avoid touching your face. Discard cloth face coverings that: • No longer cover the nose and mouth • Have stretched out or damaged ties or straps • Cannot stay on the face • Have holes or tears in the fabric

concentrate on difficult tasks, and persist despite frustration. 7. Make a place for feelings It’s natural to feel anxious when things are uncertain. That can make you irritable, clingy, distant, matter of fact, and all sorts of feelings that your child may have trouble understanding. The calmer you can be, the better for your child. This doesn’t mean you ignore feelings and pretend everything is normal. Let your child voice their worries, and talk about your own feelings. Expressing, naming and sharing feelings will bring you closer and solidify your child’s sense that you are on their side. In the end, it’s important to reassure your child that you’re doing everything you can to keep them safe and healthy. If things feel especially difficult having your child at home, try Parenting Cue Cards, a tool we made to address tough parenting situations, and reach out to friends and family who you

can share your worries with. It’s important that while you prioritize caring for your child, you care for yourself too.

continued from page 2 Sunday’s SDUT carried Ernie Cowan’s article about his 'Happy Place', an inspiring piece prompting this one. A close friend often refers to her one happy place that often draws her back to a significant moment when she felt the happiest. Failing to fully appreciate her feelings, because we have so many possible happy places, forgiveness is requested. We have been to many extraordinary places around the world and one that we love more than another is hard to visualize, each conjuring unique and personal feelings. With some reflection stimulated by Cowen’s article, a few came to mind along, surprisingly, with the deeply-held feelings associated with them. In the past, Carl’s happy places have often come when alone, unexpectedly, or in a sudden moment of stark contrast; Taking

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) You might be upset about having to deal with problems that are no fault of your own. But you can turn the annoyance into an asset by showing how quickly and how well you can resolve them. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) The Bovine's fondness for tidiness pays off when you untangle a situation that seems hopelessly snarled. You might later be surprised to learn who will be expressing his or her gratitude. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Although you can tackle your assignment the way you prefer, it might be a good idea to at least ask for suggestions. Who knows? One or two might even turn out to be helpful. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Make all the changes in your plans or proposals that you feel are necessary before -- repeat, before -- you submit them to your colleagues. You'll come off looking more decisive that way. LEO (July 23 to August 22) You might feel a mite intimidated in a new environment, be it a job, a classroom or meeting the future in-laws. But enter with a big smile, and everyone will see you as a real take-charge Cat. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) This could be a romantic time for you if you can set aside your cynicism and let yourself believe that someone really cares. If you're already in a relationship, expect your partner to be extra-loving. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) It's a good time to shed any

doubts about your abilities. You've proved yourself in the past, so why not accept that you'll do just as well, or better, in dealing with the new challenge ahead? SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Your suspicions might be on the mark, but unless you can prove what you assume, you need to exercise that Scorpion discretion and let events unfold without your assistance. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Be careful not to go over the top this week. Avoid overeating (especially of the wrong foods), or drinking too much, or working too hard. You can do it all, but in moderation. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) A family matter is given to you to resolve because you have the gift for bringing quarrelsome kinfolk together. But while you're playing Dr. Phil, don't neglect your career obligations. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Someone of importance shares your goals but disagrees with your plan to achieve them. Never mind. Defending your methods with logic and facts earns you admiration and respect. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Consider getting away, perhaps for the weekend, despite all the demands made on your time and energies. You'll return refreshed and ready to tackle it all with your usual finesse. BORN THIS WEEK: You have a sense of honesty that makes people believe and trust in you.
