Saturday the County listed Julian in their daily report of zip codes with reported cases of Corona Virus infections. It does not mean that we have a person living among us with the virus, we really don’t know what it means except the person has 92036 on their identification as their residence. Unless the person or their family comes forward with details we may never know. It just reinforces the need to stay vigilant, and take care when you go out - wear a face mask, wash your hands, stay six feet away - all the things we have been doing for the past month.

FFA Goes Virtual To Show
High School’s Plans To Finish School Year
by Jessica Bakken
School and different activities may be suspended for the time being, FFA spirit still holds strong. Here is a recap of the special times that united our members and led to success. In December, the small engine team consisting of Dusty Flack, Dakota and Tatankah Audibert, Corey Lay, Alex Gonzales, and Wesley Gratzer, placed in first and third as a team. Individually Dusty placed first, Dakota third, Corey fifth, Alex sixth, Wesley seventh, and Tatankah eighth. These impressive scores were in response to hard work and lots of time practicing as a team. A month later, our members were at it again in a Cooperative and Marketing competition where Corey lay won first. Ali Arias second, Nikki Arias fourth, Taylor Anderson seventh, and Sophia Golding eighth. These competitions tested our members on their ability to learn valuable information while in business and strengthen their math skills. Also in the same month was the BIG competition, which stands for Best Informed Greenhand, that let our new freshmen shine! The team, Piper Woodward, Haley Simmonds, Noelani Vatthauer, and Lilian Skibinski. Our smart female members placed second, after being tested on their knowledge on FFA and its importance. January proved to be a busy month as a few days later, two conferences were held, MFE (Made For Excellence) and ALA (Advanced Leadership Academy). The former was a conference for our sophomores, and the latter was for juniors and seniors. Three sophomores, Ali Arias, Gillian Mercer, and Jessica Bakken attended MFE, and learned valuable ways to be a leader and still act like a team player. continued on page 10 ESTABLISHED
Earth Day was a unified response to an environment in crisis — oil spills, smog, rivers so polluted they literally caught fire. On April 22, 1970, 20 million Americans — 10% of the U.S. population at the time — took to the streets, college campuses and hundreds of cities to protest environmental ignorance and demand a new way forward for our planet. The first Earth Day is credited with launching the modern environmental movement, and is now recognized as the planet’s largest civic event. The theme for Earth Day 2020 is climate action. The enormous challenge — but also the vast opportunities — of action on climate change have distinguished the issue as the most pressing topic for the 50th anniversary. Climate change represents the biggest challenge to the future of humanity and the life-support systems that make our world habitable. Virtual Earth Day - Climate Uprising<https://climateuprisingsd. org/?source=SD350> On April 22, 2020, the 50th anniversary of the original Earth Day, a virtual climate uprising is planned all over the world. In San Diego, local organizations are collaborating to create a full afternoon of speakers, art and music, information, and interactive actions – all online and open to everyone. The coronavirus pandemic ended our plans for a massive rally and march, but cannot silence our collective voice! Activities will start at 12 pm with a Virtual Climate Rally (join at 11:45 am) with inspiring speakers, spoken word, and activities. The afternoon will feature a variety of online workshops and activities for the whole family. School-specific virtual strikes will take place ahead of the rally. During the morning, on April 22, local schools and environmental clubs will host school-specific events. In September, over 4,000 students in San Diego County walked out of school to demand climate action as part of the Global Climate Strike.
• We are thinking ahead already about next year‘s officers and if needed virtual elections will be held. • Our seniors will be recognized for their involvement in ASB this year by receiving graduation sashes. This will be a great way to appreciate them and we hope to continue this tradition year after year. • Unfortunately, our March dance was canceled. So, Mrs. Bakken will be at the school on Wednesday April 15, 2020 at 12 o’clock to refund students money. If they are unable to meet her at the school, they will receive their money through mail. • 9th grade: The welcome freshman dance has been canceled and may be postponed till next year. • 10th grade: The sophomore talent show has been canceled for this year but may be postponed till next year. • 11th grade: At the moment prom is not canceled, but we will know more details on May 1. • 12th grade: Senior activities will only happen if the locations of the activities open back up before June. • The yearbook distribution party has not been canceled yet as there’s still hope of coming back to school. If we are unable to distribute yearbooks we will find a way to deliver or mail them. If you would like a yearbook please let Mrs. Bakken know. They are $75 apiece and the yearbook committee worked very hard even under the circumstances. • A virtual Decision Day is being coordinated for May 1st to recognize post-secondary plans for all Seniors.

I have to take issue with Jon Coupal’s Commentary in the April 15 Julian News critical of defined benefit pension plans. First, there are darn few pension plans still around with 401(k)’s and the like replacing them. Those are defined contribution plans, subject to the vagaries of the stock market, the prejudices of investment managers, the willingness (or not) of employers to share their profits. Where defined contribution plans are negotiated with unions, the amount the employer kicks in for their workers’ old age may stay the same, but the benefits will vary widely depending on the economy, or investment strategies over which employees and their unions have no control. Some employers have been known to invest those pension contributions in themselves, and then went bankrupt, leaving the workers with nothing. That led to creation of the federal Pension Benefit Guarantee Corporation, signed into law by President Gerald Ford in 1974, requiring private employers to have insurance that protects their workers against failed pension plans. In the public sector – and we’re talking here about public safety employees, teachers, health care workers, food inspectors, border guards and other vital workers – defined benefit pension plans are a way to attract and retain employees in often-difficult occupations, and they are part of an employee cost package that includes wages, health and welfare, holidays, vacations, etc. Pensions are not a stand-alone cost, although the anti-union conservative-libertarian groups Coupal cites seem to think so. I am retired, with two small defined benefit pensions, one private and one from teaching. Both were negotiated by the unions that represented me, and I am so grateful to have them along with Social Security. Many working women and men struggled through difficult times against greedy bosses to attain some measure of security after retirement; I honor them. They enabled me to live in Julian. Albert Vetere Lannon To the Editor: As a retired member of the United States Foreign Service, I was proud to represent American interests and values in seven countries over my 23 years of service. I write this as Foreign Service Day approaches on May 1, intended to honor our active duty Foreign Service members. Members of the U.S. Foreign Service are dedicated, hardworking public servants whose mission is to promote American interests, values, and national security. As the new coronavirus pandemic continues its march across the world, members of the Foreign Service have been working around the clock to bring home thousands of Americans stranded abroad. My colleagues are proud to serve their country. This global pandemic struck at a time when the Foreign Service was already overstretched and understaffed. Numerous critical positions in Washington and at embassies abroad remain vacant. I hope that something good will come out of this frightening time, including the support the Foreign Service needs to best serve America’s interests abroad. Kiki Skagen Munshi Julian

Community is priceless in time of war and peace A reassuring proof of Julian as community is encountering nearly 100% compliance at the Julian Post Office, masks and gloves are the new backcountry fashion. Another example are news briefs of San Diego’s biotech community working 24/7 in a massive global cooperative network battling Covid-19. San Diego labs beat Polio, AIDS and MERS, to name a few, developing vaccines and treatments used worldwide. We have been to Costco twice since sequestering and maskmaking started. Costco is taking Covid-19 seriously, instituting processes and procedures to mitigate exposure while providing an essential service. One flaw however is permitting the defiant to enter the store without masks or gloves. One wonders at the mentality of those who just cannot do what is right and follow safe practices. While some steps at mitigation are being taken, there are flaws in both thinking and doing by business owners and individuals. Recent data indicate 80% of Covid-19 patients caught the disease from an asymptomatic person, from which the infection is spread by just breathing or talking. Surprisingly, breath travels many feet, lingering on surfaces for days. We are simultaneously experiencing a medical, public trust, truth, social coherence, wisdom, and commonsense crises globally. The economic impact is devastating and will last for years. It’s frightening Letters continued on page 11

It has been over 4 weeks now since the stay at home order spurred our quilters to begin sewing face masks. Over 500 masks have been sewn by individual club members. The bulk of the masks were shared with health workers, either our local clinic, hospitals, nursing homes, group homes, and Masks for Covid. Watching TV and seeing the front line workers gives a reason to keep sewing because we are safe at home. Locally, masks have been given to friends, family, local employees, plus made available to residents from the Clubhouse via Facebook posts. Thank you to residents who have pitched in with donations of fabric, elastic, bias tape, pipe cleaners, etc. Several of our seamstresses have donated their own supplies or stash of materials. Thank you to those who have made donations to the club in appreciation of the work our women are doing. Thank you to women of the Methodist Church, Cuyamaca Woods Quilt Guild, as well as women of Julian Pathways and others. And, thank you to those who offer to drive, either locally or down the hill to deliver materials and masks.

Commissioner Lara Requires Insurance Companies To Fairly Investigate All Business Interruption Claims Caused By COVID-19 LOS ANGELES, Calif. — After receiving numerous complaints from businesses, public officials, and other stakeholders of certain insurance representatives attempting to dissuade business policyholders affected by COVID-19 from filing a notice of claim under its business interruption insurance coverage or refusing to open and investigate these claims upon receipt of a notice of claim, Insurance Commissioner Ricardo Lara and the Department of Insurance issued a Notice requiring insurance companies and other Department licensees to comply with their contractual, statutory, regulatory, and other legal obligations and fairly investigate all business interruption claims caused by COVID-19. “I want to be absolutely clear that insurance companies need to fairly investigate all business interruption claims as they would during any disaster,” said Insurance Commissioner Ricardo Lara. “Policyholders deserve all the services, coverage, and benefits they are due under their policy.” The Notice and existing California regulations require insurance companies and other licensees to: Comply with their contractual, statutory, regulatory, and other legal obligations with all California insurance claims including, but not limited to, business interruption insurance claims, event cancellation claims, and other related claims filed by California businesses. Acknowledge the notice of claim immediately, but in no event more than 15 calendar days after receipt of the notice of claim. Provide the policyholder with the necessary forms, instructions, and reasonable assistance, including but not limited to, specifying the information the policyholder must provide in connection with the proof of claim and begin any necessary investigation of the claim. Accept or deny the claim, in whole or in part, immediately, but in no event more than 40 days after receipt of the proof of claim. The amount of the claim accepted or denied by the insurer must be clearly documented in the claim file unless the claim has been denied in its entirety. The Department of Insurance strongly encourages businesses to review their policies, including policy exclusions, coverage limits, and applicable deductibles, and contact their insurance companies to determine what their policies cover as each insurance policy is different and the coverage varies.

Faith and Living
Pastor Cindy Arntson
Sloths are those animals from South and Central America who move slowly along in their characteristic upside-down position. Sloths move so slowly that their fur is often a greenish tint from algae growing in it. The name “sloth” was originally the English word for slow. Later, the word sloth came to be associated with “indolence” (inactivity resulting from dislike of work) and “laziness” (lack of effort; resistance to work or exertion) Sloth came to be known as one of the seven deadly sins because it has a spiritual element: apathy; inactivity in the practice of virtue; avoiding trouble and discomfort; insensitivity. It can be summed up as not caring enough to do what is right or important. Many of us, in these days of “safer at home” where the new business casual attire is pajamas, are wondering if we are becoming slothful. But you can’t tell sloth by outward appearances. A person in constant motion can be slothful if they don’t care enough to do what is ultimately important. The Jungian analyst, Helen Luke describes how slothfulness can be expressed in busyness, “The slothful never stop running and that is particularly obvious in the driven busyness which is the bane of our society and which is fundamentally, a slothful escape from the hard work of the journey within.” We know from our own experience that the “journey within” (reflecting on who we are, our thoughts, feelings and motives) is often more uncomfortable and difficult as well as more important. Many of us have been so busy being “productive”, we have lost sight of what is really important. Scott Peck viewed laziness as the main reason Americans often fail with interpersonal relationships. We don’t always put forth the effort necessary to maintain our relationships. Sloth is present when one or both people refuse to take responsibility for their part of the relationship or when they go through the motions without real investment of themselves to keep the relationship interesting, fresh and vibrant. While sloth often arises from not caring, it can also come from fear or pessimism. We see this when we convince ourselves that any effort on our part would not bring any positive effect or the situation is hopeless. To stop caring about success is a way to protect ourselves from the pain of possible failure. Hope helps us overcome sloth. Hope is more than wishful thinking. It is belief that the future we envision will come to pass and taking action based on that belief. It is the confidence of hope that overcomes the apathy or fear of sloth. A teacher, hired by a hospital to work with their young patients, received a call from a classroom teacher requesting she visit a particular child. The classroom teacher explained, "We're studying nouns and adverbs now. If you could help him with his homework, he won’t fall behind the other students." As the hospital teacher entered the boy's room, she realized he was horribly burned and in great pain. She stammered awkwardly, "I'm the hospital teacher, and your teacher sent me to help you with nouns and adverbs." The boy barely responded but the teacher stayed and began his lesson. As she left, she feared she had put him through a useless exercise. The next morning a nurse asked the teacher, "What did you do to that boy?" Before the teacher could finish apologizing, the nurse interrupted her. "You don't understand. We've been worried about him. But ever since your visit, his whole attitude has changed. He's fighting back; he's responding to treatment. It's as if he has decided to live." The boy later explained he had given up hope until he saw the teacher and realized, "They wouldn't send a teacher to work on nouns and adverbs with a boy who was dying." Working toward a desirable future, reinforces hope. It’s important to remember that inactivity or moving slowly is not the same as sloth. We can use this time of enforced limits on our activity to reflect on why we’re doing what we’ve been doing. We can make better decisions about how we invest our time and energy. We can focus on things that will strengthen our relationships. Many of us are actually spending more time in meaningful conversation than we did previously when we thought we were too busy. We can gain energy and motivation with much needed rest. People of faith believe that time to rest and reflect is so important that God mandated it. Sabbath is essential to avoiding sloth. Whether our sabbath rest is on a particular day or a portion of every day, it is essentially taking precious time away from being “productive” in order to maintain our connection to God and other people. We can use our quiet, inactive time to listen to God’s voice and ground ourselves in the future God has planned. Hope is difficult to generate for ourselves, especially over the long haul and in the face of bleak circumstances. Hope increases in us as we faithfully, consistently tend our relationship with God. Then, we can work for the future while trusting the future to God. Cindy Arntson is ordained clergy serving Community United Methodist Church at 2898 Highway 78, Julian.

My Thoughts by Michele Harvey
This Is Week Five, I Think
I hear that a lot of people are gaining weight while they have to stay home. I haven’t gained an ounce. I sleep. Sleeping is how I quit smoking nearly ten years ago and it’s how I’m not over eating right now. Of course while sleeping it’s difficult to build enough energy to get much done while I’m awake, but not that I really have adjusted to the fact that I could be here a really long time, I’m trying to build a routine that gives me some exercise. One of my cousins lives in Normal Heights. Normal Heights was developed in the early 1900s and officially founded in 1906 I think it could be considered one of the older neighborhoods of San Diego. Since the pandemic has caused so many people to stay home, my retired cousin has observed some changes in her neighborhood. Lots of people are walking dogs. She told me that she had no idea that her neighborhood contained so many dogs. Joggers have also sprouted out from somewhere. Lots of joggers are jogging along her flat street. Thirdly, she has noticed plenty of shiny new bicycles. Maybe people have had these bicycles for a while; however, she says they all look absolutely new. I guess that places that sell bicycles are essential businesses’. I’m not being sarcastic. This might keep people from going stir crazy in a time that domestic violence is predicted to skyrocket. Many of the streets in Normal Heights that are north of Adams Avenue are wide. They are certainly wide enough for dog walkers, joggers and bicycle riders to be on them all at the same time and a safe distance from each other. How many calls have you made today? Many people live alone and many of them are lonely. Getting a phone call from someone who asks “How are you doing, I’ve been thinking about you.” might be the most important thing you do today or even the most important thing you do this week. Another activity that would be welcome is if you write notes or letters to people. They don’t have to be long. Just saying hello and that you are thinking of that person or that family is a thoughtful gesture. I have been writing notes and I have been receiving them too. This is a nice change from emails and facebook. Many of us think of ourselves throughout our adult lives. Sort of a Me, Me, Me approach to life. Often it can’t be helped. I have to get to work. I have to get groceries. I have to make dinner. I have to help the children with their homework. I have to get laundry done tonight so I will have something clean to wear to work tomorrow. Now is a time that we can take a few minutes or even a few hours to listen to birds, frogs, toads and whatever critters are rustling in the leaves around our houses. Get a cup of tea, a cup of coffee or whatever you prefer drinking in the morning and sit outside your house listening to the world wake up. We have always had extraordinary sunsets here in the mountains. Did you ever take time to look? Were you ever home at a time that you could look for more than a fleeting second? One evening husband Mike and I sat on the western slope of our property watching the sunset when something dark rushed under our pear tree. It was a fox planning to get his dinner. Once he saw us he began barking. I think he was swearing at us for disturbing his evening. Naturally we moved so he could eat in peace and we have watched many stunning sunsets since then. This is a good time to grow a garden. Even people in apartments can grow vegetables in pots and maybe even miniature lemon trees. In an apartment you need sunshine or grow lights, pots with trays so you don’t ruin your floors and carpets, soil, water, a bit of fertilizer and seeds or starter plants. If you have a yard you don’t need the lights. In the San Diego area you can contact Walter Andersen Nursery. They may do curb side deliveries. I haven’t driven to Ramona for over a month; however, back then, True Value next to Albertson’s had plants outside for sale and a large variety of seeds inside for sale. They also sell pots, trays, soil and fertilizer, so this would be an excellent place to begin your garden. You can also buy garden tools from them. In Wynola, about 2 miles west of Julian is Wynola Flats Produce stand. There, Mike has a variety of plants that you can buy and put in the ground at your place. We bought two tomato plants from him. About two months ago we bought chives and green onion plants from him. I remember one year when I was raising my boys, probably thirty years ago, my chive plants lived through the winter and I cut some in the snow. That was fun! I’ve seen posts on Facebook from people who think it is okay for them to go out and about and that those of us who think it’s a good idea to stay home, should just stay home. Well, it would be great if it worked that way, but it doesn’t work that way. When I go to the market for groceries, I wear a mask and I have worn one for weeks. I have Emphysema and getting a cold could be very damaging to my system. Getting a covid-19 virus could be disastrous to my health. If I need to pick up prescriptions I can’t stay home. I hear motorcycles driving up and down highway 78 in Wynola daily now. I guess people decided that they don’t need to follow our governor’s mandate. He is doing his best to keep us all healthy and some choose to ignore him. Earlier this week while I walked into Don’s Market in Santa Ysabel for some necessary grocery shopping I saw about eight motorcycle riders walking and talking through the parking lot. I saw no masks. I saw no physical distancing. What I saw was people who don’t care and they will probably die soon. That is sad. And ... these are my thoughts

EAST OF PINE HILLS
by Kiki Skagen Munshi
Staying In My Place So it’s foggy again this morning. And damp outside, which means Goldie will go out, get his feet wet, come back in and leave tracks on a floor that used to be clean. The other cats are smarter, or lazier as the case may be and being both lazy and smart went right back to sleep after breakfast. These are uncommon days. We’re grateful for the rain—we are ALWAYS grateful for rain NO MATTER how tired…scratch that word. We love rain in this dry country but we don’t love Goldie’s muddy feet. We’ve tried to keep Goldie in but he has two stages in wanting to go out. The first is to meow incessantly. The second is to attack Tabby Two. So we throw him out and shut the cat door. Then we feel sorry and let him back in and try to wipe his feet but he objects to having his feet wiped and… …and these are small problems. We hear that COVID-19 has reached Julian Up till now no one we know has been in the hospital or died from the disease, though there are a number who may have had it. “May have” but we don’t know because there aren’t tests…but now someone we possibly know has it. That is, we don’t know every single person in Julian but we know a lot of them and invariably we know someone who knows someone who….you get the picture. It’s a small community. These are strange days, COVID-19, fog, drizzle. Staying home in the country isn’t a major problem — there’s enough room to move around, to stop on the way to the Post Office and talk, at a safe distance, to Lesley or Bettie on THEIR walks. There is e-mail and internet and telephone and ZOOM and lots of ways to stay connected. There are animals to cuddle and until now there was enough isolation to make us feel relatively safe as long as we were able to stay on the hill. But we can’t always stay on the hill and people come up from the city and now the disease has ceased being something that happens to places you see on television. Now someone is sick and the world has moved closer. Someone we may know. It’s a small community. We hope it doesn’t become smaller.
*** Because we were orbiting the earth faster than earth spins on its axis, we went around the earth 16 times a day, an earth day, which meant 16 periods of lightness and 16 periods of darkness in 24 hours. Every so often you'd look towards the earth, and often you could see lightness and darkness together, and dawn and sunset were spectacular. — Helen Sharman, Astronaut ***

Whirligigs What is a whirligig? Some move on a windy day like pinwheels. Some are moving toys, for example a man chopping wood. Many are moving garden pieces such as people chopping wood or waving a flag. The experts say there four types of whirligigs. The first were made as early as 500 B.C. by American Indians. These were made from a bone and a strip of leather. A modern version of the whirligig has a button that spins with string. A large button with holes can be made to spin so fast that it makes a noise, and these are called buzzers or bullroarers. A more complicated whirligig is the Chinese bamboo-copter or
Whirligigs scare the birds for a while, then birds seem to realize the moving parts are not dangerous, and they will eat birdseed on the ground nearby. But they do scare wild rabbits. dragon butterfly that was made in China by 400 B.C. These are pictured in some early tapestries. The most often seen whirligig is the wind-driven pinwheel. Folkart collectors like the homemade whirligigs that show a hen pecking, a soldier fighting or a woman waving her arms. Or the
ones with two men sawing wood. These became very popular in the 1880s to 1900, and they are still being made. They are one of the newest types of folk art to become popular with collectors, and prices have been rising. Some sold for over $1,000, even though they were very crude. A 26-inch-high primitive carved and painted wood and iron whirligig with a blond woman waving both arms while standing next to a red, white and blue ball sold for $308 at a Skinner auction. The paint was worn, the arms and legs were stiff, and there was little motion, but it did look like it was homemade. *** Q: I have a 22-piece chocolate set in excellent condition. It's marked with an "R," "Bavaria, Germany" and "warranted 18 carat gold." Each plate has a 1-inch border of gold, the cups are gold and the pitcher with lid is gold. Does the gold trim make it very valuable?
A: The gold trim does not mean it's very valuable. The words "18 carat gold" indicate the alloy used for the gold trim is 75 percent gold, but there is very little gold used on the porcelain. A chocolate set should have a pot, creamer, sugar, six small plates, and six cups and saucers. It would sell for less than $50. *** CURRENT PRICES Gibson Girl vase, purple dress, feather hat, Royal Bayreuth, gold brocaded border, green ground, 5 1/2 inches, $35.

San Diego County TreasurerTax Collector Dan McAllister is now accepting penalty cancellation requests for those who have been directly impacted by the coronavirus pandemic. “We know COVID-19 has had widespread consequences for people in San Diego, California and across the nation, and we want to be as compassionate and lenient as possible,” said McAllister. “We will cancel late penalties for those directly affected by the virus.” Taxpayers can find a special penalty cancellation request form on the Treasurer-Tax Collector’s (TTC) website, along with additional information. Here is what a taxpayer must do to submit a penalty cancellation request: • Complete the request form, print it and sign it.<https:// w w w.sdttc.com/content /dam/ ttc/docs/taxcollection/requestfor-cancellation-of-penalties_ COVID-19.pdf> • Include printed documentation showing why they were unable to pay their property taxes by April 10, the delinquent date. • Include a check for the second installment of property taxes they owe. The TTC does not accept request forms when there is no payment attached. • Mail the request form, documentation, and check to SDTTC – ATTN: COVID-19 REVIEW, 1600 Pacific Highway, Room 162, San Diego California, 92101. Alternatively, drop off a request in the TTC’s drop boxes found outside all our branch office locations. • Requests must be submitted by June 30. All penalty cancellation requests will be reviewed and approved on a case-by-case basis. If a taxpayer is unable to pay their second installment by June 30 and is seeking an extended period of time to pay, state law provides the option of a payment plan beginning on July 1. Once taxes are in default, however, all penalties and interest apply when going on to a payment plan. “Property taxes fund many essential services, including coronavirus response and the salaries of first responders,” said McAllister. “That’s why we encourage those who can pay their taxes to do so as soon as possible so our county, schools and cities can meet their financial obligations.” Residents should stay up-todate on ways to stay healthy, current closures and the County’s coronavirus response at coronavirus-sd.com.

Little Coronavirus Relief For Property Owners
by Jon Coupal
The second installment of the 2019-2020 property tax bill was due on Friday and we hope the majority of California’s property owners were able to pay it without economic hardship. Unfortunately, for many homeowners and small businesses, it was more than just a hardship. They simply didn’t have the cash, and now they’re considered delinquent. For this regrettable state of affairs we can thank both state and local officials. Gov. Gavin Newsom had the authority to issue an executive order to delay the deadline or direct counties to waive penalties and interest but, after pressure from local government associations, he declined to do so. The California Association of County Treasurers and Tax Collectors admits that its members have the discretion to waive penalties and interest for late payment of property taxes. But whether they will do so will be determined only on a “caseby-case” basis. In Orange County, Tax Collector Shari L. Freidenrich told the Los Angeles Times, “We will be closely reviewing each request on a case-bycase basis that we receive from homeowners, small businesses and other property owners who have significant demonstrated economic hardship due to COVID-19.” What constitutes “significant demonstrated economic hardship” is anyone’s guess, because the term is not actually defined in California law. It would be extremely helpful if the Legislature retroactively waives fines and penalties for those who have lost jobs and wages due to the coronavirus. But in the meantime, because local officials have not acted, property owners are left in limbo at a time when they need clarity and predictability. Sadly, property owners are subject to the whims of their county’s treasurer-tax collector, whose policy on late payments may be much different from that applied by tax officials in other
counties even though they are permitted by statute to provide relief. Some county treasurertax collectors have effectively extended the deadline by simply closing their offices. Under the law, if the office is closed, the deadline for payment of taxes is the next business day that the office is open. San Francisco County Treasurer-Tax Collector José Cisneros has extended the tax payment deadline by closing the TTC office through May 1. San Mateo County TreasurerTax Collector Sandie Arnott has also pushed the tax payment due date to May 4. There is no small amount of irony that two progressive counties have stepped up to the plate for taxpayers while counties that are perceived as pro-taxpayers have been recalcitrant. Treasurer-tax collectors who kept their offices open may have missed their chance to follow the lead of San Mateo and San Francisco counties. But they are not too late to waive penalties and interest for property tax payments made after the April 10 deadline by Californians who have suffered from the unforeseeable economic damage caused by the statewide lockdown. The Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association has created a resource available to the public that provides the contact information for treasurer-tax collectors in all 58 counties. Taxpayers who need assistance or have questions are encouraged to visit www.hjta.org and click on the banner at the top of the homepage. Almost all treasurer-tax collectors in California are elected by the voters. We suspect voters will reward those officials who demonstrate flexibility in these unprecedented circumstances. Those who don’t shouldn’t expect a lot of sympathy if they pay a political price in their next election. *** Jon Coupal is the president of the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association (HJTA).

® Dear EarthTalk: What’s the current thinking on the safety of genetically engineered or modified products with regard to environmental, farm worker and consumer health? -- A.J. Cary, NC
In ALA Rylie Boyd, Elise Linton, Nikki Arias, Corey Lay, Elizabeth Denny, and Perla Lares, experienced similar lessons, but as all of them were either seniors or juniors, they learned techniques that would carry them through the rest of high school and into the future. These ideas reach far beyond our FFA chapter and even Julian, which highlights the importance of FFA. In March, our members prepared for the San Diego Section Speaking where multiple competitions took place and the day proved to be highly successful. Three freshmen
Howdy From Lake Cuyamaca
Few topics are as divisive as genetic engineering. Plants and animals that have had their genomes artificially altered now dominate the world of agriculture. The vast majority of U.S.-grown corn and soybeans are genetically engineered. In grocery stores, over 60 percent of processed foods contain at least some components derived from GMOs (genetically modified organisms). Given all this, it makes sense to ask whether or not these altered forms of life have deleterious effects on humans or the environment.
The vast majority of soybeans grown in the U.S. come from genetically modified seeds. Public health and environmental advocates wonder whether these "frankenfoods" are hurting our health and the environment. Credit: Toshiyuki Imai, FlickrCC. When it comes to human health, the evidence suggests GMOs are harmless. Exhaustive meta-analyses of scientific studies on GMOs have generally found no links between their consumption and negative health outcomes. However, there are some caveats. One is that the biotechnology companies responsible for the creation of GMOs have also been responsible for a large portion of the research on their health effects. Therefore, financial conflicts of interest may have tainted the research. Additionally, many scientists still feel that the jury isn’t out on the safety of GMOs. A 2015 scientific paper signed by 300 independent researchers from around the world states that the effects of GMOs on health remain “unclear.” Another factor is that scientific studies on GMO-related health risks have generally been short term. We can’t extrapolate the effects of years of GMO consumption on human health by looking at the seemingly null results from a year-long study on rodents. It could still be that GMOs are causing health issues, but we’ve failed to establish a causal link because of how long these issues take to manifest. That said, it’s quite possible that most (if not all) GMOs on the market today are completely safe to eat. Regardless, testing should continue, especially for new varieties of GMOs that aren’t well studied. Environmentally, GMOs are a mixed bag. Most crops are genetically modified in an effort to fight pests. There are two ways to accomplish this goal. The first is to create plants that produce pest-killing toxins “endogenously”: When pests eat such plants, they die. These types of GMOs can actually be good for the environment in that they often don’t require as many pesticides as unmodified plants. Unfortunately, an alternate pest fighting strategy that also uses genetic modification—engineering plants to be resistant to pesticides and herbicides—has the opposite effect, generally leading to an increase in agricultural waste. Also of concern is the genetic contamination of wild species due to cross breeding with GMOs. This is particularly a risk in the case of GMO farmed salmon. If these fish escape fish farming operations and contaminate wild stocks, the ecological consequences could be severe. All in all, GMOs are still shrouded in uncertainty. They seem to have some benefits, and many scientists believe they can help address world hunger. However, there’s still a chance GMOs could cause health issues, and they have already caused some environmental issues. If you’re not convinced by the research to date, and prefer to avoid GMOs altogether, look for the non-GMO project label on the foods you buy.

memorized the FFA creed and passionately spoke in front of judges, which led to Noelani moving to the second round and winning fifth. In another part of the competition called impromptu, students are given one minute to make up a speech from a given topic, and present. In this Sophia Golding placed fourth, and Taylor Anderson placed third. In Prepared, members have to write and memorize a six to eight minute speech and present to judges, Rylie Boyd won fifth, and Ali Arias, won second place. In Extemp, the contestants are given a half an hour to write a five to seven minute speech on a given topic, and Jessica Bakken achieved second place, and Erin Conitz won fifth. Last but not least, in a competition for seniors and juniors called Job Interview, Dakota Audibert sadly did not place, but Nikki Arias won first. The members who won third place or above were going to regions which included Nikki Arias, Taylor Anderson, Alyssa Arias and Jessica Bakken move onto the southern region speaking competition in May. Congratulations to everyone in all your hard work and preparation, because it paid off! More recently, three Julian FFA members applied for Proficiencies. Nikki Arias was a winner in section, and region in forest management and productions. Daniel Lopez was a winner in section for landscape management and Dusty Flack also won section and region for AG Mechanics fabrication and design, and also viticulture. Later, Nikki made the top three state finalists for forest
management, along with Dusty for Viticulture. Congratulations on your achievements! More members who deserve recognition are six students who traveled up the state of California to UC Davis for a field day. They got to travel and see parts of California some have never seen along with the Ramona FFA Chapter. Students from both schools got to go visit Yosemite and Half Dome, they got to travel through part of the Western Sierra Nevada Mountains, see the State FFA House in Galt and visit the State Capital in Sacramento. Julian and Ramona students have practiced together to compete. In small engines, Dakotah, Corey, Wesley, and Alex placed tenth as a team and fifth as a team in troubleshooting. Piper Woodward also competed in BIG and Sophia Golding in horse judging. Throughout the entire year, our members and advisor Mr. Martineau, worked long hours
to see the success that we have achieved, but don’t think for one second that our FFA spirit has stopped. FFA is still functioning and rolling along, students are working with other chapters to keep the spirit up, and continue to practice for upcoming events. We have virtual state convention, with Dakotah Audibert and Mariah Gentry as delegates, who will be voting and discussing new amendments for California FFA. Nikki will be helping run discussions as a sub-committee chairperson, and applications have been pasted out to see who will make next year’s officer teams. Some students are continuing on virtual judging contests, such as Farm Business Management and Horse, others will be added as time goes on, such as cooperatives, BIG and small engines. Our members are currently also raising 32 livestock projects for upcoming fairs, either in person or virtually. We will be working to look for potential buyers for the livestock projects for people to purchase animals. Ag mechanic projects are still going, with students making trailers, benches, tables, pens, bowls, pizza rollers, cheese knives, etc. Students are working on projects at their houses for future competitions to display, compete and hopefully sell. As school transitions to a virtual learning from home, FFA members are keeping their spirits high, reaching out to their friends from neighboring school, such as Ramona FFA, these students keep motivating each other to do their best in projects and look forward to the next in person FFA event. Life has not settled for our busy students as they continue to expand FFA into their home lives and spread a little joy through our small community!
“Dusty Britches” here with an update on Lake Cuyamaca….. Fishin Report…sorry, but no fishin report due to no fishin. The good news is, the fish that are out there in the lake are just getting bigger and this shut down happened very soon after our last trout plant from Mt. Lassen. By the way, have you ever seen a frog kegel? I have a friend ask me to do a study on the affects of the lake with no influence or impact from the two legged animals… and the answer is “no”, although I do believe I did see a frog kegel while I was doing my in-depth study. I had heard that they kegel to keep their ability to jump… and to remain flexible in their older years, especially the Bull Frogs. Old “Cuss Cussler” kegeled frequently almost on a daily basis while smoking a cigarette. Nobody knew why, only “Cuss” could tell you that. My observations around the Lake indicate very little, if any, change in behavior in the wildlife here whether the Homo Sapien erectus is around, or not. Mostly, the folks who visit our Lake are very respectful of the resident wildlife from a distance with awe and wonder. To all outward appearances, the natural balance seems to be remaining the same although there are probably some who would tend to disagree with such things. The only notable newcomer to the Lake is a Golden Eagle that has been sighted several times… their size is an amazing sight when they are on the ground… and a notable habit is that our trash cans are not knocked over with the trash strewn from hither to yawn only because there is no trash to speak of. To add a little stimulation to our day (and night), we were graced with a waterline rupture… possibly a result of the recent earthquake… a 6” waterline with 110 pounds of pressure on it… holy cow, what a show. Jay Blaylock and Scott Guiton were on it like fudge on a brownie. Other than that, I’ve gotta go do something… even if it’s wrong. Let’s dream about opening soon ! Happy trails, til next time.

continued from page 2 how corrupting irresponsible behavior can be. Protesting shutdowns and insisting the Government has no right to issue such orders reflects the naivety of Americans steeped in political hype and historical mythology. Comparing Covid-19 to a preventable flu for example, is faulty thinking, since this virus is not a flu, and has an unusual structure allowing it to spread easily. This virus knows only biological boundaries, not physical borders or one’s biometrics. It may cause lung, heart, liver, kidney and neurologic damage residuals for life. The survival of a modern society in a pandemic requires cooperation, responsible residents and social values that serve all who reside in the society. Undermining or disregarding those commonsense requirements is as dangerous as
this pandemic. Following the rules of a group's long-established survival protocols has benefits, determining whether you become a Darwinian statistic or live to produce grandchildren. Off-loading blame is not helping, finding the source and origins, while important, is secondary to resolution. During this global challenge we have come to witness all sides of human nature: defiance disguised as freedom loving, contradictory and self-defeating belief systems, rudderless agencies, and whistle blower bashing. We see self-serving in abundance, entrenched traditions defying reason, individuals in positions of authority stirring the human pot for self-gain, the greater good lost in rumor. Price gauging, fear mongering and self-serving is not the way. Social confusion as policy and a financial elite concerned only about personal wealth will not sustain the country. We lose trust when agendas we depend on fail to serve in times
of crisis. If transparency was ever a priority of good government, this is the time. Solutions to problems as massive as the Covid-19 pandemic should not be left depended on good will and private enterprise alone. It requires enlightened cooperation directed from the top down. The U.S. has been laid bare, becoming a glaring example social inequity hitting the underserved and vulnerable more severely. We need a caring leadership at the federal level, not a directionless government and an archaic political system chin deep in muck. We are experiencing a “War…. without a General.” The good news: Systems such as health, emergency and logistics, and the rudimentary social safety net are stressed but holding up under the burden of this crisis. Sequestering is working. Many wealthy citizens are stepping up and funding organizations that are providing a great service. Businesses are

becoming uniquely adaptive. People understand that the slogan ‘we are all in this together’ is not a political jingle but a reality, and people are rallying to keep spirits up in countless ways. People are helping others touching base with their natural tendency to care. Emerging new leaders and news sites are providing fact-based information. Scientists and labs are closing in on this menace, revealing new information daily, racing to develop treatments and vaccines. Children learn by example and adults grow an environment by positive action. We can do better, and after this war is won seemingly from a grass roots movement, bring the battle where the real enemy resides: defeat Indifference. Indifference undermines a society. We are humans. We must base our actions on human requirements and the betterment of all, demanding the same from our leadership. Carl and Ingrid Englund

enjoys. Good options include low-sodium canned beans, vegetables, fruit (packed in fruit juice), breakfast cereal, peanut butter, pouches of fully cooked whole grains, nuts, whole-wheat crackers and shelf-stable milk or plant milk (the kind sold in aseptic boxes in the grocery aisle). * When buying canned foods, choose low-sodium or no-saltadded products and choose fruits packed in their own juice or water instead of syrup. * Store canned goods in a cool, dark, dry area away from furnaces, pipes and other places where temperature changes occur. Store metal cans off the floor because moisture may lead to rust. * Always use the FIFO (first-in, first-out) method when it comes to taking foods from storage so that you are sure to use your oldest cans first. If you see that a can or jar has a broken seal or is rusting, bulging or dented, discard it. If any food does not look or smell right, throw it out. * Keep at least six gallons of water per family member to be prepared for one week. Store water in airtight, food-grade storage containers. Replace water every six months. Here are a few recipes using ingredients that should be in every emergency pantry -- grains and beans! Beans and grains are nutrient dense, packed with protein, versatile and are very filling. These no-cook emergency pantry recipes, courtesy of Trisha Calvo, a writer for Consumer Reports, are simple and easy to prepare.

Volume 35 - Issue 38
ARIES (March 21 to April 19) A problem in getting a workplace project up and moving might upset the Lamb, who likes things done on time. But be patient. The delay could turn out to be a blessing in disguise. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Your instincts are usually on the mark, so if you feel uneasy about being asked for advice on a certain matter, it's probably a good idea that you opt not to comply with the request. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You might have two minds about a proposed change (which often happens with the Twins), but once all the facts are in, you'll be able to make a definitive decision. Good luck. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) The Crab's frugal aspect dominates, so while you might be reluctant to pay for technical repairs, the time you save in getting things back on track could be well worth the expense. LEO (July 23 to August 22) While you Leos and Leonas continue to concentrate on doing well in your work-related ventures this week, consider reserving the weekend for sharing good times with family and friends. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) This is a good week to take stock of the important personal, professional or familial relationships in your life and see where you might need to do some intense shoring up. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Your sense of justice makes you the likely person to help deal with a work- or family-related grievance. But you need to have any doubts about anyone's true agenda resolved first. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) The Scorpio passion for getting things done right and on time might rankle some folks. Never mind them. Others will be impressed, and they're the ones you want in your corner.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Finances could be a mite tight this week. And, while things will ease up soon enough, you savvy Sagittarians will want to keep a prudent eye on your expenses at this time. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Although a technical malfunction could cause a temporary delay in getting things up and running, you could use the time to recheck your operation and make changes where necessary. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) You might find it difficult to resist making a snap judgment about a colleague's behavior. But stick with your usual way of assessing situations and wait for the facts to come out. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Asking for help with a family situation might be the wisest course to take right now. Just be sure you turn to someone you can trust to do and say the right thing for the right reasons.
