COVID-19 Testing Comes To The Back County




Town Founder Drury Baily’s Birthday from the Julian Gold Book published by the Julian Historical Society Drue Bailey was born at Dalton, Georgia, May 31, 1884. At the outbreak of the Civil War he enlisted at Rome, Georgia, in the Confederate States Army as a private in Company H, 3rd Regiment, Georgia Cavalry, on May 13, 1862. He served with honor under General Joseph Wheeler until May 3, 1865. Elsewhere in this history are Drury's wanderings until the time he settled in Julian, laying out the Townsite and giving free lots to all who would build on them; here let us say these were 100' x 25' and the Townsite is today as he laid it out in 1869. In 1874 when Drue and his partners ceased mining operations in Banner, they each went their separate ways, Drue coming to Julian a where he operated blacksmith shop and livery stable, also a stage line from Julian to .Banner. He boasted he would carry a man so far for a dollar that he would be glad to pay him $5.00 to haul him back to Julian. If his bluff was called, he would taken his victim to Banner and he never lost a return fare. For many years Drue was a leading spirit in the town he had founded. A genial man and "Good Samaritan," he was generous in any call of distress. One local pioneer who with a 15 year old son had gone to Cuyamaca to cut timber for the mines, had the misfortune of an accident to the boy, who had gone hunting and had shot himself, losing an arm. Gangrene set in and the boy died. After the funeral, which, with medical care of the boy had taken all the man's money, and with a large family to care for he was desperately depressed the day he met Drue on the streets of Julian. Drue offered sympathy and reached out a hand to shake his friend's hand in farewell. When he withdrew his hand he left $500 in the other man's grasp. The man protested and Drue insisted he keep it as a gift, saying that he had sold a mine for a large sum of money and wanted to share with those less fortunate. This story is still told by the man's greatgrandson with fond recollections of Mr. Bailey's kindness. Drury also donated a portion of land to the town for a cemetery, for the high school and grammer school sites, a lot for a public hall, and a jail, and for a church. When asked for the donation for the church, he replied, "Sure thing; I'll donate a lot for a church in every block if some denomination will build on it." He was a loyal friend, liberal in his views, of temperate habits. Following an old family custom an eggnog was served in his home on Christmas, but that was his only indulgence in alcoholic beverage, but being a good mixer he would fraternize with the boys in the saloon, standing his rounds of drinks for the others but choosing a cigar for himself. He had many friends and few enemies. He was set in his convictions if he believed himself ESTABLISHED



right, but thoroughly enjoyed a good joke. In the early days everyone danced. People came from near and far to the Julian dances, by wagon, buggy or horseback. The town hall being fully equipped with a ladies dressing room, all the mothers of young babies used this room to "bed down" their infants while they danced until dawn. At one of these dances, just before the last waltz, Drue sneaked into this room, changed the wraps and switched every sleeping baby to a different position. At the end of the dance every mother rushed to the nursery, retrieved what she thought was her child, and all hurriedly left for home. Imagine the confusion when each realized she had some other mother's child--with no idea of who had hers. Drue had left suddenly by stage for the county seat immediately after the dance. The mystery was cleared when he returned three days later and confessed his guilt to save an innocent person who had been blamed for his mischief. Anyone else would have received harsh treatment from those outraged mothers, but Drue was finally forgiven. During boom times two young miners who became intoxicated daily, and threatened each other with dire deeds, became such a nuisance that Drue and Charley Monroe decided to frame them into a duel to the finish. Saying nothing and biding a favorable time, they waited for action. Next payday the time came. The two belligerent miners met in Doc Hopkins's saloon and their usual carousal began. Bailey and Monroe arrived upon the scene just as "Jack" challenged "Joe" to a fist fight. Drue stepped up saying, "You boys have been nursing a grudge ever since you hit camp. Why don't you go some place and shoot it out like men and be done with it." Jack replied, "If I had a gun, I'd show him." "Here's my gun," Drue replied. "Charley, have you got your gun?" "Yes," Charley replied. "Give it to Joe," Drue said, "and we will act as seconds. Come on out into my field where there's no danger from stray bullets hitting innocent bystanders, and be done with all this fuss. Charley, you bring Jack, I'll take Joe, come on now." The town, not knowing of the frameup, followed. Drue turned and told the crowd, "This is a private affair, stay where you are," but they were determined to see the outcome and continued to follow, so by the time the field was reached the whole town was at their heels. Drue and Charley lined the two men up, one on each side of the trail, insisting they would

get back out of the way; stepping off 30 paces, they handed each contestant a gun and told them that at the count of three they should begin shooting at each other and to keep shooting until one killed the other or the guns were empty. The crowd shivered with excitement as they gazed in awe at the fear stricken duelists. Drue called, "Are you ready? Take aim, fire!" Only after it was over and neither was harmed did the audience realize that Charley and Drue had loaded the guns with blanks. The duelists were ordered to shake hands and forget their differences. From that day on they were the best of friends. Another day a banquet was scheduled to honor a local event. Mrs. Hoskins, the proprietress of the Julian Hotel at the southwest corner of Main and Washington Streets was preparing the event. Drue, as he claimed, went to "put a flea in Mrs. Hoskins ear," telling her there was great rivalry between bachelors Al Frary and Jim Green over their pie eating ability, and that Frary was in the habit of pocketing pies to carry home on any occasion where they were at a public feed and that Al boasted he carried off enough pie to last him a week after the last banquet. Drue seriously assured her she should keep an eye on Al so he would not get away with anything at this banquet. That night Drue and a fellow conspirator framed poor Al, but good. When he donned his overcoat to leave, Mrs. Hoskins was watching and discovered a chicken leg protruding from his coat pocket. She grabbed him and told him to disgorge, and that the ticket to the banquet did not include grub for a week. Against Al's protests she proceeded to rifle his pockets disclosing the chicken's other leg, a napkin, knife, fork, and spoon. The indignant Mrs. Hoskins declared she would have him arrested on a charge of theft. Seeing matters had gone far enough, Drue confessed the joke. Al had suspected Drue but had no proof. He accepted the joke and held no grudge like the good sport he was. Drue and Miss Annie Laurie Redman were united in marriage by Judge Leslie of Julian on December 14, 1875. Of their 12 children, three died in infancy. They made their home in Julian until Drue's death October 8, 1921: he lies in the cemetery on the peaceful hill above his old home on Main Street. Mrs. Bailey followed her husband November 25, 1927. Their nine living children scattered, but all returned frequently for happy reunions at their old home. Much of the property owned by Drue in 1869 is still in family possession, many are on display at the Julian Pioneer Museum.

As part of efforts to expand COVID-19 testing, the County will be opening sites in rural communities and other areas of the region. New locations, starting Tuesday, will be staffed with first responders from CAL FIRE and the San Diego County Fire Authority. “This virus knows no boundaries, so it is critical that we extend testing into our backcountry, including Julian, Pine Valley and other communities,” said District 2 Supervisor Dianne Jacob, who represents East County. “This initiative is part of our regional test, trace and treat strategy that is allowing us to track the course of the illness and help clear the way to safely restarting more of our economy.” Testing will be set up outside several County Library branches and other locations throughout the region’s backcountry. “San Diego County is vast covering over 4,500 miles, which is why it's so important to make testing available in our rural areas, like Valley Center and Borrego Springs,” said District 5 Supervisor Jim Desmond. “In order to get more people back to work and overcome the virus, we need to provide an ample amount of testing for all San Diegans." Drive-up testing sites will be available from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. in six rural communities. An appointment is necessary, and you can make one by calling 2-1-1. The sites will be on: May 26: Julian Library, 1850 Highway 78 May 27: Pine Valley - Fire Station 44 (OLD), 28850 Old Highway 80 May 28: Valley Center Library, 29200 Cole Grade Road May 29: Borrego Springs Library, 2580 Country Club Road May 30: Potrero Library, 24883 Potrero Valley Road, Potrero June 1: Ramona Library, 1275 Main Street, Ramona June 2: Ramona Library, 1275 Main Street, Ramona June 3: Campo Library, 31356 Highway 94, Campo June 4: Pauma Valley - Pauma School at 33158 Cole Grade Rd June 5: Julian Library, 1850 Highway 78 “Partnering to protect our communities is critical to reducing the spread of Covid-19,” says CAL FIRE/San Diego County Fire Authority Chief Tony Mecham. “We are committed to working with our county health department to ensure all San Diego County residents, including those in the rural communities, are as safe as possible.” Other County Testing Sites In the past few weeks, COVID-19 testing in the region has been made more widely available and the region is now regularly surpassing more than 4,000 tests a day. Appointments are required at all County sites and can be made by calling 2-1-1 and asking for the Nurse Triage Line. Starting Sunday, May 24, testing will take place for the next two weeks on Sunday, Wednesday and Friday, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., at St. Anthony of Padua, at 410 W 18th Street, in partnership with National City Mayor Alejandra Sotelo-Solis. The County’s Live Well on Wheels Mobile Office is offering testing in Hillcrest on Mondays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. starting June 1 at The San Diego LGBT Community Center, 3909 Centre St, San Diego, CA 92103. A County testing site is now re-opened at San Diego County Credit Union Stadium in Mission Valley, operating Monday to Saturday. The hours are from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., except on Saturday’s when they change to 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. to avoid conflicting with the weekly food drive. This site can test up to 180 people daily. On Saturdays, the County’s Live Well on Wheels Mobile Office will offer COVID-19 testing from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Euclid Health Center, located at 292 Euclid Ave. State Testing Sites Two state-run walk-up test sites are now open in Southeastern San Diego and El Cajon. One is located at the Tubman-Chavez Center at 415 Euclid Avenue and the other at the former San Diego County Assessor Office at 200 S. Magnolia Avenue in El Cajon. These two sites are in addition to those already operating in Escondido and Chula Vista. All the state-run locations require appointments, which can be made at or by calling (888) 634-1123. COVID-19 testing options include calling your doctor or medical provider to schedule an appointment, signing up on the state website, or calling 2-1-1.

Shape San Diego County’s Future – Serve on Redistricting Commission

by Tracy DeFore, County of San Diego Communications Office

The opportunity only comes once every 10 years – a chance to redraw the boundaries of the County’s five supervisorial districts. The County is taking applications now for people who can serve on its Independent Redistricting Commission. Members will redraw the district lines to reflect the new numbers in the federal census. Why is that important? District lines can shape a community’s ability to elect the representative of their choice. The 2020 census numbers will reveal new data on residents and whether one district is more populated than the others. Each supervisor should represent a diverse population of about 650,000 residents. Redistricting Commission members will re-shape the district boundaries to meet community needs. The commission will act independently from the Board of Supervisors. The County’s Clerk of the Board will take Redistricting Commission applications through July 31. To qualify, volunteers must be San Diego County residents who were registered to vote with the same political party or listed as no party preference for the last five years. And they must have voted in at least one of the last three statewide elections. Applicants must not have been active in political circles for the last 10 years. They must be impartial and demonstrate analytical skills. Applications will be screened for the 60 most qualified applicants. One commissioner for each of the five districts will be picked during a random drawing at the Oct. 13 Board of Supervisors meeting. A second random drawing that day will select three additional commissioners for a total of eight. Those commissioners will meet to decide on six more to round out a 14-member commission. Once formed, the Redistricting Commission must hold at least seven public hearings in 30 days with at least one hearing in each supervisorial district. Other meetings, dates and times are at the discretion of the commission. The group will review the new census data when it’s released and start the process on redrawing new maps for the five supervisorial districts. The maps must be completed by Aug. 15, 2021.

Kids With Cameras In Focus

by Jeff Holt

The program was actually born from a Saturday experience back in May, 2011 when several local photographers created “over 20 images . . . with each work displaying a unique and visual variety of Keeping It Wild, the new tagline for the Volcan Mountain Foundation.” Participating photographers included Bill Benson, Marisa McFedries, Brian Kramer, Bill Bevill, and Chris Elisara. One of the goals was to "create a movement documenting the continual changes of this majestic mountain” Those photos would later sell for $40 a piece and netted $440 with half going to the photographers and half going to VMF. Ten cameras were purchased from a grant through the Julian Methodist Church. These cameras would be used by over 100 children and 35 adults. I would like to make these cameras available to VMF. We put student's work on display at the library over the many years. Albert Simonson, local historian, once wrote to the Julian News "If I hadn’t read that the photos were by students, I would have believed they were professional. I wish my photos were that good.” Although the remaining KWC budget will fold into the general fund, I believe VMF will continue to document the continual changes of our majestic mountain. The visual arts will remain alive and well and I am confident that Suzie Meyer, Education Chair, will continue the process. Thanks for this incredible journey and a thanks to the many volunteers who helped make this program such a success! WE INVITE YOUR OPINION!

What a great first page this week: the historical photo, to make us smile; the essay from the sheriff, to gently warn us; the article about infectious droplets, to legitimate worries we may feel in public spaces; and the news that locals are working on reopening the town, to give us hope. Thank you for all the labor that you and Michele put into this vital publication! Julie Olfe A big “Thank you” to all those who made The Haven of Rest look so well cared for. I no longer live in Julian, but came up to place flowers on Memorial Day weekend. As usual, the American Legion Lincoln Deming Post had placed flags on the graves of veterans. Someone(s) had weed whacked meticulously. I’m so grateful to David Lewis for having the interest and love of Julian to keep the up the cemetery. If anyone has an ability and interest in performing public service, I’d suggest giving a hand there. The Haven of Rest looked beautiful & it made my heart happy. Thank God for people who care!

Help Someone Who Is Lonely You can make a difference during the lonely days of the COVID lockdown, especially among lonely seniors whether they be friends or family, says AMAC If you don’t have the heebie-jeebies by now, you soon will if you don’t take precautions during this new era of self-isolation due to the coronavirus pandemic. The anxiety most of us feel for the victims of COVID-19 is exacerbated by the loneliness of the enforced seclusion required to keep ourselves safe. “It takes a lot of self-discipline and spiritual moxie to overcome the sadness, boredom, disquiet and agitation of solitary confinement. It’s a far cry from those moments when you want some alone time and it can lead to bouts of depression. Unfortunately, once again seniors are among the most susceptible,” according to Rebecca Weber, CEO of the Association of Mature American Citizens [AMAC]. Weber cites data from the University of Michigan National Poll on Healthy Aging (NPHA). It shows that long before the pandemic overwhelmed the U.S. in October of 2018, 34% of older Americans between the ages of 50 and 80 reported that they felt a lack of companionship. And, she points out, the authors of that study recently noted that “as social distancing and stay-at-home orders continue in many states in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, feelings of isolation and loneliness may be amplified among older adults.” Meanwhile, the same poll showed that individuals who engaged in social activities were less likely to feel isolated. So what can you do about it? According to the experts, Simply engaging an elderly friend or relative in conversation is a good way to start, says Weber. • Social stimulation without face-to-face contact is, indeed, possible and easy enough to do. Think about making a phone call every day or a couple of times a week to a lonely neighbor, friend or family member. Better yet, make it a video call using your cell phone. You may have to provide easy to follow instructions and maybe even the device, but it will be well worth it. It’s a good and effective substitute for a physical visit. • And, when you are on one of your calls, you might use the occasion to explain that the lockdown doesn’t preclude getting physical by taking a walk at least once a day, for example. A trip around the block or even in the backyard or the confines of your home provides a healthy dose of fresh air and exercise, even if you have to wear a face mask. • If you notice a tinge of negativity in your conversation, deal with it. Reminisce about happy events in the past or talk about food, old friends and old movies-- topics that provoke a smile or a laugh. After all, the purpose of making the contact is to spread cheer. • Give that person a purpose by suggesting “chores” such as gathering family recipes, organizing family pictures or encouraging him or her to take up a new hobby such as jig saw puzzles. • Finally, you may want to suggest getting involved with a local charity. Lending a helping hand to a local charity such as a food-for-the-needy organization. Simple tasks such as mailing solicitations for contributions and/or packaged food items can make a shut-in feel not so isolated and can give them a “helper’s high.” In other words, helping others reinforces our sense of worth. “It’s all about creating distractions that replace the negative thoughts that come to mind when you’ve got too much idle time on your hands, making you feel useless, all alone and in despair,” according to AMAC chief Weber. The 2 million member Association of Mature American Citizens [AMAC] is a vibrant, vital senior advocacy organization that takes its marching orders from its members. AMAC Action is a non-profit, non-partisan organization representing the membership in our nation’s capital and in local Congressional Districts throughout the country. And the AMAC Foundation ( is the Association’s non-profit organization, dedicated to supporting and educating America’s Seniors. Together, we act and speak on the Association members’ behalf, protecting their interests and offering a practical insight on how to best solve the problems they face today. Live long and make a difference by joining us today at join-amac.

continued from page 1

• Post signs saying no employees or customers with COVID-19 symptoms should enter • Temperature/symptom screening for employees daily • Employees and customers must wear facial coverings • Limit number of customers to maintain six feet of distance • Businesses that have not done so already need to complete a Safe Reopening Plan, post it at their entrance and discuss with their employees. Retail businesses that have been providing curbside or front-door pick-up and will now be allowing customers indoors must update their plan. The public or employees should not enter any business if they have symptoms of COVID-19, which include cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fever, chills, muscle pain, sore throat, or a new loss of taste or smell. The plan was adopted because the County meets all the current readiness criteria and can safely move into an accelerated reopening. As more places open to the public, it’s important for people to continue taking precautions to avoid getting and spreading COVID-19. “Dining out and shopping must be done safely as crowded places increase the risk of exposure to COVID-19,” Wooten said. “People should continue wearing a face covering in public, maintain their distance from others, avoid touching their face and wash their hands frequently.”

County Library Adds Door-Side Services At Limited Branches Census Kiosks Available Soon By Appointment SAN DIEGO — Effective May 26, the County Library will begin offering door-side service which will provide access to library materials placed on hold via the online catalog, without providing access to the rest of the library. This service will be offered at the Imperial Beach, Alpine, Ramona, Encinitas, Vista, and Borrego Springs branches, Monday through Friday, from 10 am to 4 pm. Door-side service will allow the pickup of requested items by appointment only. The items will be waiting for people at a table near the front door, in the lobby, or a community room. Library staff will contact those individuals who had reserved items at a branch when the libraries closed in March. All public health orders will apply to these visits, and instructions will be provided by the library staff when they contact people. This is the only “traditional” library service that will be available until further notice. All online library resources are available at On June 1, this same level of service will be available at Poway, El Cajon, Julian, Solana Beach, San Marcos, Bonita (pending completion of the current remodel) branches. “We are excited to begin serving our communities and customers in-person again,” said San Diego County Library Director Migell Acosta. Acosta added, “We look forward to providing expanded services at our locations as guidelines permit. And remember, the library is always here!” he said referring to the wide array of eBooks, learning opportunities, and entertainment for all ages available at free of charge. How door-side service works: • If you had items on the request shelf at one of the available locations on the day the library closed, you will be contacted by library staff to set an appointment to pick up these items. • Staff will provide pickup instructions when they make your appointment.  Please note that masks and social distancing will be required for all staff and customers. • Arrive at your appointed time. Tell the staff your last name. They will provide you with your materials, which will already be checked out to you. • We are not accepting returns or charging late fees at this time. Hold on to your materials until we begin accepting returns. Additionally, the county recognizes that, even during the time of a pandemic, the census process is vital as this determines the allocation of resources for the region for years to come. This affects everything from education to emergency services and everything in between. To support this, SDCL will soon make access to Census kiosks available by appointment. You can also follow the library on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook (@sdcountylibrary) to stay informed on the latest services we offer and when branches may open even more. More detailed information will be available soon at the library website,

My Thoughts

The Julian News 5

by Michele Harvey

I Love Living Next To My Grand Children

by Kiki Skagen Munshi

Goldie’s Gone

It could have been the two huge coyotes occasionally seen passing through. More likely it was the mountain lion who was caught on the trail cam just about the same time Goldie disappeared. Whichever, it’s been six days since Goldie, who loved breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks, has shown up to eat. Who was Goldie? We know his life here but only have clues about what happened before he arrived, skinny and wary. With decent food he became a beautiful cat if you discounted the torn ears and a bad eye. He hadn’t been neutered when he arrived; we fixed that but it took longer for him to stop spraying. At one point he came near to being drowned in the horse trough. Goldie would go in a cat carrier without protest and didn’t caterwaul for endless miserable miles when taken to the vet, unlike certain other animals we know. He behaved well at the vet’s. When he first came, Goldie was wary about being touched but, over time, became a loving lap cat. Even after two years, though, he occasionally shrank away from the hand-that-pets until he realized it wasn’t…someone else. He didn’t like men. Perhaps he was a show cat? He was that beautiful. Or a breeding cat. With lots of discipline, not much love? Goldie learned to give and accept love from his Personal Human and turned into a devoted if spoiled cat. He meowed incessantly in the middle of the night if he wanted out which is why he, alone of all the cats, was allowed out after dark. At first, when he was still spraying, it was HOPED a coyote would get him… Goldie never did become friends with the other cats even as months and years passed and always remained a disruptive presence in the household. He attacked soft little Tabby Two with regularity and was in a snarling relationship with Scruffy Claws. The tension he created really became noticeable when he disappeared and four cats relaxed. They are very happy Goldie is no longer here. As for us, we have mixed feelings. (Post Script) So Much for eulogies.... Goldie showed up last night [Saturday] after being missing nearly a week. A few burs in his tail and a bit less portly but otherwise in fine fettle. Tabby Two spent the night out and just came in. Does anyone want a lovely gold cat?

*** Memorial Day this year is especially important as we are reminded almost daily of the great sacrifices that the men and women of the Armed Services make to defend our way of life. — Robin Hayes ***

My neurologist wondered if I’m suffering from being isolated from the world. Are you kidding? We live on three acres and we have cats and chickens to watch along with baby skunks that come out in the mid-afternoon. And my youngest son lives on our property, next door with his three children. My favorite daytime occupation is watching and listening to my grandchildren. They are eight, nine, and ten years old with good imaginations. One day they built an obstacle course and in so doing they found a baby rattle snake. They put the snake safely into a bucket while they decided what to do with it. Eventually, the next day it was decided to let it go on a property that is near, but not too near to ours and not too near to any other homes. That snake was worth several discussions about rattle snakes versus other kinds of snakes, baby snakes versus grown snakes and snakes versus chickens. Chickens like to eat rattle snakes. King snakes like to eat rattle snakes too. Since the children live on our property with their father in a house next door to us we often see them and hear them. Last night, the oldest borrowed skewers for their corn on the cob and when they finished dinner, she brought them back clean and put them back in the drawer. Today she informed me that Don’s Market has a sale on Mozzarella cheese, one of her Grandpa’s favorites, so she bought him a block. The children have a container of sidewalk chalk with different colors, so our concrete driveway gets looking very artsy from time to time. As I said, they have good imaginations. It’s interesting to see what new drawings they come up with. This week, along with pictures, in front of our house is a message, “GOOD LUCK UP THERE!” Since this is on a portion of concrete that isn’t covered by tree limbs, I guess it is for any passing airplanes or helicopters. The children put on plays. They call them plays. What they do is show off any new skills they have learned to do on their trampoline, sometimes in three separate acts. We have to be paying very close attention to see the difference from one act to the next. Today’s performance was stepped up a notch. I was given a (post-it-note) VIP ticket, Mike and I were shown to our seats and during intermission we were given treats that consisted of a small bag of salted crisps, a postage stamp size piece of cheese, five grapes, a small slice of watermelon three banana slices, one of which was skewered with a toothpick on a strawberry sitting in chocolate sauce. It was absolutely delightful! My oldest grandchild, the ten year old, likes to walk down to the chicken coop and let them out each morning. Once they are all out and she has checked for eggs, they follow her up to her house just in case she has any delicacies to offer them. With three children throwing out bread crusts and watermelon rinds, the chickens have plenty of reasons to hang out where the children live. I think that the children try to build tree houses from time to time. The evidence of this is when I see three or four boards propped in trees. They never ask if it’s okay to build a tree house and if I tell them to take the boards out of the trees or tall manzanita bushes, they simply say ”Okay Grandma.” And it’s done. When the children were in school and even these days when they all have to go someplace, I thoroughly enjoy listening to the three of them bursting out of the house, sometimes arguing and mostly laughing, always absolutely full of energy. We enjoy movie nights with the grandchildren on Wednesday evenings and recently we have added Sunday evenings. This gives their father a break from all of their energy and continuous conversation and it gives us a chance to make dinner and watch TV with them. Originally we sat down to eat dinner and watch a movie, however more recently we have discovered Critter Cams shows on KPBS. Photographers have created cameras that they have put in realistic looking animals so they can watch animals acting normally in the wild. These shows are fascinating and we all prefer watching them to watching movies. I know that I am luckier than most during this time of covid-19. Both of my sons have been tested for the virus and are negative which tells me that the rest of us on this property are probably negative as well. We have eight people, six cats and five chickens to keep us entertained without having to go out to the larger world. When we do go away from our property we don’t mind wearing masks. Patty has COPD and I have Emphysema. A quick trip to Don’s Market with my mask on and with a grandchild or two is outing enough for me. If you feel lonely, get a pet. A cat or a dog could be very comforting. I’m not loaning out my grandchildren. These are my thoughts

COVID-19 Can Cause Kidney Injury, Yet Most Americans Don’t Know It (NAPSI)—According to a recent Harris Poll, too many people don’t know all they should about the dangers of coronavirus—particularly how it can affect the kidneys. COVID-19, it seems, attacks more than just the lungs. In the new National Kidney Foundation-Harris Poll Survey on COVID-19 and Kidney Health, the findings show low levels of awareness on both the risk of developing an acute kidney injury as a result of COVID-19 and of the long-term effects of kidney damage.

“A significant number of patients going into the hospital to be treated for COVID-19 are coming out as kidney patients,” said Kevin Longino, CEO, National Kidney Foundation and a kidney transplant patient himself. “We believe this may be a looming healthcare crisis that will put a greater strain on hospitals, dialysis clinics and patients, for whom chronic kidney disease will be a lasting remnant of the coronavirus crisis—even

Julian’s 4th of July Parade is Canceled

by Kim Simas

Each year people of all ages gather along Main Street in Julian to celebrate the 4th of July holiday. The small town becomes packed full of residents, visitors, bands, classic vehicles and floats all enjoying the fun and festivities. However, this year COVID-19 came along and introduced a whole new era of social distancing and concern for each other’s health. Quickly, the idea of gathering in mass became an issue. After much discussion and deliberation, the Julian 4th of July Parade Committee made the difficult decision last week to cancel this year’s parade. The uncertainty of obtaining event permits and wanting to do what was best for the community caused the ultimate decision. With so many events being canceled due to COVID-19, the Julian 4th of July Parade Committee wanted nothing more than to be able to provide an enjoyable event for the community. However, with so many restrictions still in place, the Committee felt that they were unable to move forward with the parade. The Julian 4th of July Parade Committee held out on making a decision for as long as possible. Once it became obvious that obtaining the necessary permits to hold the parade would be a major obstacle, the Committee knew that a cancellation was inevitable. Even more so was the concern for the health of those who might want to attend the parade while still maintaining the appropriate spacing needs. Plus there was a decrease in donations for the parade during the pandemic which would have ultimately caused a much smaller event if it had continued. The resulting parade would have meant losing bands, the much-loved vintage airplane flyover and more. The Committee will roll over the donations received so far to next year’s parade. In an effort to commemorate the holiday and give back to the community, the committee of volunteers will still decorate Main Street in Julian as normal. So, while there won’t be a formal parade this year, the Julian 4th of July Parade Committee hopes that everyone will still be able to enjoy the town in its festive glory. Please be sure to join us in 2021 when the 4th of July parade in Julian will be back better than ever!

after a vaccine is, hopefully, found.” Acute kidney injury - Acute kidney injury (AKI) is a sudden episode of kidney failure or kidney damage that happens within a few hours or a few days, and is happening in about 15 percent of all hospitalized coronavirus patients, many of whom now need dialysis. If a patient ends up in the intensive care unit (ICU) their odds worsen; reports indicate that one in five intensive-care patients have lost kidney function. COVID-19 will likely result in a higher number of Americans with chronic kidney disease and/or kidney failure than before the pandemic. Once kidneys fail, dialysis or a transplant is needed to survive. Hospital shortages - Hospitals aren’t prepared for the expected increase of kidney patients. In hot spots of the outbreak there are shortages of dialysis equipment, supplies and nurses properly trained to administer dialysis in the ICU. Most Americans, according to the Harris Poll, are concerned and want the federal government to step in. Further, the Harris Poll found that the vast majority of Americans want the federal government to provide more resources toward diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of kidney disease, and significantly increased funding for kidney research because of kidneyrelated illness from COVID-19. continued on page 11

Memorial Day More Than a ditioned Tea Room ir ConHoliday

Memorial Day is a federal holiday created to remember those who died while serving our country. Because of the battle we are currently waging against COVID-19, I think it also would be fitting to recognize all of the frontline medical personnel, health workers and essential workers who are putting their lives at risk or who have died fighting against this horrible disease. The Memorial Day holiday originated after the American Civil War to commemorate the Union and Confederate soldiers. Today, the holiday commemorates all of those who sacrificed their lives for our country while serving in the U.S military. It is observed every year on the last Monday of May. Originally, Memorial Day was known as Decoration Day because the graves of dead soldiers were cleaned and beautified with flowers and flags.

Moina Michael is credited with the idea to wear red poppies on Memorial Day in honor of those who died. In 1915, she was the first to wear one, and sold poppies to raise money for charities serving soldiers in need. In 1922, the VFW began to sell poppies and expanded the program to selling artificial poppies made by disabled veterans. The “National Moment of Remembrance” resolution was passed in December 2000, and asks that at 3 p.m. local time, all Americans “voluntarily and

informally observe in their own way a Moment of Remembrance and respect, pausing from whatever they are doing for a moment of silence or listening to ‘Taps.’” This year, I would like to expand the Moment of Remembrance to include all the lives we’ve lost to COVID-19, especially those who were hospital staff and essential workers. On behalf of myself, my family and a grateful nation, thank you to all those in the military who made the ultimate sacrifice, and to continued on page 11

Seed Tape Box

Children have always wanted to imitate the activities of people they see. So, toys have been made for centuries that are dressed to look like friends and, if possible, let them pretend to cook, play or work like grown-ups. In Germany, toy factories made small colorful tin toys from about 1880 to 1914 that could move and imitate a mother cooking or a boy roller skating. The price of the small toy was a penny, so they were named "penny toys" by today's collectors. About 175 antique penny toys were sold in an important Bertoia auction recently, and prices were much higher than a penny. The lowest price was $180. The highest price was $11,400 for

I know the amount of the postage stamp has often changed and there are lists of the prices and dates. But when were photographs rather than color pictures used? When was it called a "postal card"? A: Postcard collectors know and have listed the table of postage and postcard changes online, and they are in our book "Kovels' Know Your Collectibles." A postal card is an early card called "pioneer" with no picture used from 1893 to 1898. A government-printed card had printed postage, a privately

printed card required a stamp, and a divided-back card was used from 1907 to 1914. Photochrome cards were used after 1939. Collectors call them photographs, although many are lithographs with a shiny finish. Real photo cards were used since 1900. If you want to sound like an expert, refer to them as RPPC. Used cards can be dated by the amount of the postage stamp; the postmark; a two-digit postal code, used after 1943; and a five-digit ZIP code, used after 1963. *** CURRENT PRICES Clock, Petal style, green, blue, orange, composite, enamel, metal, style of George Nelson, 17 1/2 in. $75.

Remember that the best reading goals for children are the ones that will keep them reading enthusiastically. Provide a variety of reading materials to keep the learning process both challenging and rewarding. Finally, if you add a dose of fun to reading activities – and make it a family affair – kids are more likely to stay excited about reading all summer and, hopefully, all year long. So, have fun and keep on reading!

Parents are facing a unique challenge this summer. Beyond tending to a child’s health, safety, physical needs and emotional concerns, there’s another major test: keeping kids engaged in their education. In any given year, some parents worry that their kids will experience a “summer slide,” falling back in certain skills such as reading, and then struggling to catch up when school resumes. But, this year many parents are concerned about what their kids have learned – and will learn – throughout 2020, not just during the summer. Fortunately, there’s something parents can do: actively keep their kids engaged in reading this summer. Newspapers offer a great starting point, because they offer great stories (such as the one about in-orbit storybook readings!) and notices of interesting events and activities. Kids’ magazines are bright and cheerful, and have short articles on timely fads, fashions, food and other fun. Children also are highly motivated to read instructions, directions and rules as they build things, try experiments, make crafts, play board games or explore new sports. And, of course, there’s a cornucopia of reading material on computers: news, sports scores, comics, recipes, crafts, DIY projects and stories. Our favorite reading material is still a good book. If your child loves a certain topic, there’s probably a book about it, in a genre that he or she likes to read: fiction, nonfiction, fantasy, mysteries, thrillers, action, adventure, graphic novels, science fiction and so on. Here are prime places to find, borrow, or buy quality books that your kids will love to read this summer: 1 Your Local Library Some libraries may have limited programs this summer, but many have online and digital services that you can explore. Their offerings are almost always free, but you may need a library card number to join programs or access digital book offerings. We’ve seen libraries offer such things as: • Free access to a range of downloadable e-books • Virtual programs in which books are being written in real time, with new chapters shared weekly • Digital book club meetings or online reading challenges • Livestreamed story hours and poetry readings • Virtual puppet shows and storytelling • Webcasts on topics such as national parks, art contests, finger painting, and family Q&As with real scientists 2 Digital Books and Related Videos While not always free, there are many sources of electronic books to download for kids to read on their computers or other devices. Some of these services offer trial periods for subscriptions. Check out: • Epic – Aimed at kids 12 and under, this e-book web site features 40,000 books, a 30-day free trial (then 7.99 per month) with ways to sort books by age, reading level and interests. • Kindle Books – Amazon’s e-books can be read on any device with the right software, and there are many free books available. We found this article helpful – “15 Best Free Kindle Book Sites for Kids” ( free-kids-kindle-books-1357953) – because the author shared likes and dislikes for each resource. • KidLit TV – This site has free videos of books read aloud, with insights from authors and artists. Don’t overlook video streaming services as a means to inspire kids to read. Netflix has movies based on children’s books – the BFG, Charlotte’s Web, Goosebumps, Paddington, Tintin – which kids can watch in tandem with reading the books

themselves. Amazon Prime Video offers older segments from PBS’s Reading Rainbow series, which blend fun themes with read-aloud books. 3 Your Local Bookstore Consider buying books, games, workbooks and puzzle books from your favorite local bookstore. Although some may not be open for visits, they may offer pick-up or delivery. Here are a few things we’ve seen bookstores doing to engage young readers: • Virtual book launches and readings by authors • Virtual story times and trivia games • Free activity sheets for kids • Live video-chats with store owners, who will show books on their shelves or in your area of interest • Virtual book clubs and online book fairs

California Commentary

Will The Coronavirus Pandemic Lead To Tax Increases? In January, Gov. Gavin Newsom presented a proposed budget for fiscal year 20202021 which envisioned a several billion dollar increase in spending for existing programs as well as a host of new programs. But that was before COVID-19 arrived at our shores. In over the course of just three weeks in March, it became obvious that the original budget plan would have to be scrapped because of the most rapid economic downturn America has ever seen. So it was with great interest that all those who follow California politics were watching last Thursday as Newsom released the “May Revise” of the budget. To no one’s surprise, the huge dive in state revenues forced the governor to slash $19 billion from January’s initial plan. According to the governor’s Department of Finance, the budget deficit is $54 billion. But this figure may be overstated in order to present to the public the worst possible case. The non-partisan Legislative Analyst projected the deficit to be as low as $18 billion with a worst case scenario of $31 billion. The question is whether the budget shortfall will lead to a demand for tax increases. Taxpayers can also take some comfort that there are no immediate plans for broad-based tax increases. The governor proposed two tax hikes, a suspension of a business deduction for what are known as “net operating losses” and a tax on vaping products. It was a positive sign that Newsom also acknowledged that spending cuts have to be a part of the solution. Saying that Californians deserve a leaner government, reductions in overhead expenses such as government cars and travel, and reform to agencies including the Department of Motor Vehicles. He also proposed a 10 percent “contribution” from state workers in the form of salary reductions. However, what appeared to be a glimmer of hope for taxpayers may be swallowed up

by Jon Coupal

by the serious flaws in Newsom’s revised budget, the biggest of which is the belief that the proposal by Speaker Nancy Pelosi reflecting a $3 trillion recovery package will provide California with nearly as much money as it wants. The state budget should reflect reality. Pelosi’s bill will face a buzz saw in the U.S. Senate. That is not to say that no additional money for state and local governments will be forthcoming from Congress, but there is little chance it will be on the scale that represents a significant percentage of California’s shortfall. For that reason, the governor and the Legislature must be prepared to make even more substantial reductions in state spending. A return to previous spending levels may be necessary. The fact is, California’s budget has grown much faster than population and inflation in the last decade. The fastest way to close the shortfall would be with a rapid recovery in the California economy. Broad-based regulatory reform, delaying the minimum wage increase and tort reform could go far to incentivize the private sector. On the other hand, nothing would encumber economic recovery more than tax hikes. Regrettably, Newsom didn’t rule out more tax increases, and even more troubling was his evasive answer when asked about the “split roll” property tax hike slated for the November ballot. This attack on Proposition 13 would provide yet another incentive for businesses to pick up stakes and move to other states. The “May Revise” is, in reality, just the second round of what may be at least a 10-round fight among politicians, interest groups and citizen taxpayers. But given that the June deadline for passage of the final budget is immutable, it won’t be just the weather that gets hot in California over the next several weeks. *** Jon Coupal is the president of the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association..

® Dear EarthTalk: Do you suppose the drop in carbon emissions that resulted from transportation and industry slowdowns during the Coronavirus pandemic will continue—or will we just go right back to normal once the threat has been neutralized? -- Jane Smith, Cranston, RI

The roads are empty—and CO2 emissions are down accordingly—but can we keep it up as stay-at-home orders are lifted? Credit: lisbokt, FlickrCC. No one is happy about the havoc the Coronavirus has wreaked, but one bright side has been the reduction in carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions that occurred. Global CO2 emissions during April 2020— while the world was largely locked down—were 17 percent lower than the same time a year earlier, according to researchers from the UK’s University of Anglia. But emissions are already starting to go back up with the easing of stay-at-home restrictions. This decrease was an unwitting occurrence and it won’t do much to stave off climate change. Dan Gearino, writing in Climate News, says: “…don't expect this to be the silver lining of the disastrous pandemic. Climate scientists and environmental advocates say any short-term drop in emissions gives a misleading sense of progress. This could do harm if it saps some of the urgency to address climate change at a time when there are many competing demands for public money and attention.” Indeed, the United Nations Environment Programme says that global CO2 emissions would have to fall by 7.6 percent every year this decade—slightly more than the overall reduction we’ll see in 2020— to limit overall warming to less than the 1.5 Celsius rise scientists warn could turn our world upside down. Stay-at-home orders around the world have no doubt had a positive environmental impact in the short term as fewer cars, trucks and planes ply our roads and airways. But the longer-term outlook isn’t so good, especially when factoring in the damage done to public transit systems. Alon Levy and Eric Goldwyn of NYU’s Marron Institute of Urban Management report in CityLab that public transit ridership in major cities in the U.S., Europe and China is down 50-90 percent. Unfortunately, attracting riders back to potentially crowded buses and trains won’t be so easy, given the germ factor. Who wants to share tight quarters with dozens of strangers on a bus or train given the transmission risks? The irony is that public transit options have been starting to proliferate as various metro areas fund light rail and other mass transit infrastructure projects to boost usage and keep drivers and their cars and trucks off the road. While environmental advocates aren’t optimistic that we can keep up the emissions reductions achieved over the last few months, they are hopeful that the world’s reaction to the pandemic—people and governments coming together to protect human health and minimize loss of life—bodes well for our ability to handle the climate crisis as it gets more critical over the next two decades.

Joseph Edward DuErmit (Bud) was born at Mercy Hospital in San Diego, CA on June 16, 1925 to Clare Lucile (McCarthy) DuErmit and Joseph Warren DuErmit. He enjoyed his childhood growing up with his McCarthy and Orsborn cousins in La Mesa, CA. Joseph was an only child, and all his cousins stepped in as his brothers and sisters. He enjoyed close relationships with all of them throughout his life. Due to his father’s assignments as a civil engineer, Joseph spent his high school years in Northern California and graduated high school in Salt Lake City, UT. At 18 years of age, and at the start of WWII, Joseph enlisted in the U.S. Navy and was assigned to the USS Essex with a tour of duty in the Pacific theater. He served in the Navy from June of 1943 to February of 1946. These years were very important to Joseph and later in life he was an active member of the USS Essex Association, serving twice as chairman, and attending many Essex reunions to keep in touch with his shipmates. In the early 1950s Joseph served on the La Mesa Fire Department where he trained and worked as a firefighter. In June 1953, Joseph married the love of his life and partner Barbara. This wonderful marriage also brought him a daughter, Karen. During their early-wedded years they resided in El Cajon and La Mesa. In 1956 Barbara gave birth to their daughter, Shirley. In 1965, Joseph moved his family first to Westminster, CA then to Huntington Beach, CA. He worked at Boeing (McDonnell Douglas) for 23 years in their fire and safety department. Joseph retired in 1988 so he could assist Barbara with her recovery from a brain tumor operation. Joseph and Barbara moved full time to their vacation home in Julian, CA in July of 1998, where they enjoyed the slower-paced, less-crowded life. While living in Julian Joseph was an active parishioner of St. Elizabeth’s Catholic Church. He helped in many of Julian’s 4th of July parades as a parking attendant or riding his John Deer tractor in the parade. Joseph committed to a weekly work out at the Julian library as a sit n fit participant. He also enjoyed lunch and visiting with all his friends at Poncho Villas or an afternoon coffee break at the Julian Pie Company. His quick witted sense of humor will never be forgotten. Joseph was a man larger than life. He cared deeply about his relationships, and enjoyed numerous friendships throughout the years. Joseph was the life of the party wherever he was, keeping everyone smiling with his great sense of humor and entertained by his many stories. Joseph will be remembered as a wonderful, selfless, and caring father, husband, step-father, grandfather, and friend and will live in our hearts forever. Joseph suffered a critical fall and passed away on April 30th, 2020. St. Elizabeth Church funeral service and celebration of life to be announced in the Julian News as soon as possible.

“Wowzer” and Holy Cow, what a show !!! “Dusty Britches” here to say that Mt. Lassen Hatchery didn’t disappoint! You’ll need to put a saddle on some of those rainbow trout that were planted last Thursday May 21st. Lane, the driver who delivered the 3,000 pounds of beauties… may have included a new lake record trout in this batch. I just passed an angler on my way to the office who had his fingers stuck up the gill plates of two 10 plus pound trout as I’m listening to our north shore ranger at the same time on the radio spreading the word that another 10 plus pound rainbow just came out of the water. It’s definitely a cool thing to hear the screams of elation from across the water when someone hooks up… a blast from the past. Better than ketchup and mustard on a hot dog in the ninth inning with the score tied at a Padre game. The Bald Eagles are out putting on a show for the visitors, the Canada Geese are paired up and “honkin”, red winged black birds are growing in numbers, the bull frogs are sounding like a chorus at night, and just a walk on our trail around the south end of the lake in the evening… you can close your eyes and mentally match the number of sounds to the different critters making those sounds. The blue herons nesting in the tops of the pine trees over on Fletcher Island above Pump House Cove is a good one during an afternoon walk. In addition to the trout that were left over from the plant just before our world was turned upside down and last Thursdays 3,000 pounds, we plan to release the trout that are penned at the boat dock that we have been raising since early last fall. Ellie and Barbara are taking care of business in the main tackle shop, Jay, C.T.-3, Scott, and Steve are handling all the last minute problems that crop up, Bobby doing the sanitizing, Sarah is the rover and keeping folks honest, Wally has the front door, and Lenny has Chamber’s Park with Scott posting up at Lone Pine when he’s not helping out with other stuff… The visitors understand when we tell them some of the restrictions on occupancy, and we do our best to provide good customer service, reasonable access, and flexibility with their concerns… a good job done by all. We have made provisions regarding “social distancing” around the lake with signage. We have also taken steps to help out Dolores in the restaurant by

May 27, 2020

constructing a tent canopy in the west parking lot and repositioned tables and chairs under the canopy from the restaurant for “social distancing”… blocked off half of her dining booths, and repositioned the remaining tables and chairs in the restaurant and on the deck to provide proper “social distancing” so when the County allows her to, she can become sustainable again. We are down somewhat in personnel and haven’t gotten clear cut protocols from the County on sanitation of boats, rods and reels, kayaks, etc. so we will hold off regarding our rental equipment until a more appropriate time. Lodging is a go… but only on the weekends… for pretty much the same reasons. Lot’s of paint brushed on thanks to Captain Morgan and Calen Bole and lots of deferred maintenance has been caught up on by Jay Blaylock and Scott Guiton. Ole “Dusty” almost had a couple of board members talked into listening to an argument in favor of giving price breaks, or even free fishing and admission to the local crowd using zip code, but they also heard about the locals who have damaged our new fencing, trespassing, etc. during the closure of the lake in addition to the recent graffiti last summer. I think the kicker was one local coming out to fish at night, catching a 14 plus pound catfish, then bragging about it afterwards in Julian. I hope it tasted good. So much for bragging rights. It is reasonable to say my proposal has been tabled to some time in the future… when in the future that topic will be revisited is unknown at this time, back to step one… it’s disheartening and kind of like walking up a sandy hill… some folks just can’t decide which foot they want to shoot first. I almost got there but was hit by a greyhound bus along the way. Enough said about that… All the work that made this happen were mentioned above…cudos. The carp population is thriving and we have a following of bow anglers, some of which show up with platforms on the bows and sterns of their boats… cool to watch them at the south end working their way through the bull rush. One carp sporting about 20 pounds somehow made its way to the doorstep of the main Bait and Tackle shop and was promptly relocated across the highway… the food chain was happy and the carp gone by the next morning. The same bounty applies….”Kill a carp, Fish for free… or… ”Kill a carp, Camp for free”. Ever watch a yellow lab chase a bullfrog in water? or a chicken? or a butterfly? or a squirrel? Or watch him eat ants, green grass, watermelon, apples, cantaloupe, fish bones, or coyote poo?... I have. What a great life… “Happy Trails” “Do the right thing, it will gratify some people and astonish the rest”… Mark Twain “Tight Lines and Bent Rods”… Dusty Britches

Volume 35 - Issue 43

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) You might be a bit shaken by a friend's request. But before the Lamb leaps to conclusions, insist on a full explanation. You still might say no, but at least you'll know what you're saying no to. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Seeing red over those nasty remarks by someone with an ax to grind? Of course you are. So get out there and give your supporters the facts they need to get the truth out. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) A changing situation should get you to reassess your vacation plans and make any adjustments as soon as possible. And don't fret -- the change most likely will turn out for the better. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Don't put off dealing with any negative feelings that might be left over from a recent confrontation. The sooner all is resolved, the sooner you can move forward with fewer complications. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Leos and Leonas might feel the urge to redecorate their dens, and that can turn into a good opportunity to strengthen family ties by putting the whole pride to work to make it happen. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Look for the most efficient way to get a job done quickly and well. Taking more time than you need to make it look more challenging is a short-sighted move you might regret later on. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) A pesky problem should be dealt with immediately so you can put your time and effort

into something more important. Someone from your past could have significant news for you. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) A workplace situation becomes a lot more bothersome than you'd expected. Be careful not to be pulled into all that anger. Look for support among others who also want to avoid trouble. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Cheer up, lonely lovers, wherever you are. Just when you thought you'd been deleted from Cupid's database, the chubby cherub proves that's just not so. Congratulations. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) A casual relationship could take a more serious turn. Are you ready for it? Your stars say you are. Paired Sea Goats also will find a renewed richness in their relationships. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Meeting a collaborator with new ideas seems to be a dream come true. But for both your sakes, be sure all your legal i's are dotted and t's are crossed before you start working together. PISCES (February 19 to March 21) A romantic overture flatters the usually unflappable Fish. But since it's a sincere fromthe-heart gesture, go ahead and enjoy it. A minor health problem responds well to treatment. BORN THIS WEEK: You have the warm heart of a Taurean and the sensitivity of a Gemini. You would make a wonderful leader. So go ahead: Run for office. © 2020 King Features Syndicate, Inc.
