More Young San Diegans Getting Sick, Hospitalized Due to COVID-19

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

The number of younger San Diegans getting infected with the novel coronavirus has been increasing in recent weeks, and more of them are landing in the hospital, the County Health and Human Services Agency (HHSA) announced today. Of the nearly 21,500 COVID-19 cases reported in the region, San Diegans between 20 and 39 years of age represent nearly 44% of all cases. A closer look at the HHSA data shows that after restaurants, bars, wineries, breweries, hotels and other businesses reopened, the number of people between 20 and 39 years of age getting sick with COVID-19 began to rise rapidly. During the second week of June, 510 San Diegans in that age bracket got sick with COVID-19. Another 1,144 got sick the following week, and during the last week of June the number jumped to 1,595. The figures began to decrease again when indoor activities at those same were closed again. The total was down to 1,028 by the week ending July 11. “Some young people think they’re invincible and won’t get sick, but that’s not the case,” said Wilma Wooten, M.D., M.P.H., County public health officer. “Not only are they getting sick, but they are also ending up at emergency rooms and needing hospitalization.” During the second week of June 10, a total of 16 San Diegans between 20 and 39 years of age were hospitalized. The figured dropped to 12 the following week and jumped to 27 the last week of June. Again, the number began to decrease when continued on page 4 ESTABLISHED

Julian, CA.

On Friday Governor Newsome announced the State’s plan to reopen schools for the fall. If things don’t change in the County, back county schools will have to start with on-line (distance) learning. The plan is tied to the status of San Diego County and whether or not it remains on the State’s “Watch List” of covid-19 impacted counties. The plan centers on rigorous instruction for students even when schools are physically closed. Decisions to open in-person learning will be determined by local data that the public can track on a daily basis. Schools open for in-person instruction will implement precautions, including a requirement that students in 3rd grade and above wear masks. “In California, health data will determine when a school can be physically open – and when it must close – but learning should never stop” - Governor Newsome Announcing his plan for learning and safe schools ahead of the 2020–2021 school year, as the California Department of Public Health issued a framework for when and how schools should reopen for in-person instruction. “Learning is non-negotiable,” said Governor Newsom. “The virus will be with us for a year or more, and school districts must provide meaningful instruction in the midst of this pandemic. In California, health data will determine when a school can be physically open – and when it must close – but learning should never stop. Students, staff, and parents all prefer in-classroom instruction, but only if it can be done safely.”

Mom and Dad may have to brush up on their teaching skills - again! The Governor’s plan centers on five key areas: 1) Safe in-person school based on local health data The California Department of Public Health(CDPH) today issued updated schools guidance that includes using existing epidemiological metrics to determine if school districts can start in-person instruction. CDPH currently uses six indicators to track the level of COVID-19 infection in each California county as well as the preparedness of the county health care system – data that includes the number of new infections per 100,000 residents, the test positivity rate, and the change in hospitalization rate, among others. Any county that does not meet the state’s benchmarks is put on the County Monitoring List. Schools located in counties that are on the Monitoring List must not physically open for in-person instruction until their county has come off the Monitoring List for 14 consecutive days. Schools in counties that have not been on the Monitoring List for the prior 14 days may begin in-person instruction, following public health guidelines. School community members – including parents, teachers, staff and students – can track daily data on whether and why their county is on the Monitoring List at https://covid19.ca.gov/roadmap-counties/#trackdata. * There is a single exception. Local health officers may grant a waiver to allow elementary schools to reopen inperson instruction if the waiver is requested by the district superintendent, in consultation with labor, parents and community-based organizations. When considering a waiver request, the local health officer must consider local data and consult with the California Department of Public Health. This could be a way forward for the back county, as the number of cases reported is small and to our knowledge there have not been any “community outbreaks” in Julian, Warner Springs or other back county areas. It will be the decision of the Superintentants and School boards if they with to persue a waiver. The Department also issued updated guidance for when schools must physically close and revert to distance learning because of COVID-19 infections. Following a confirmed case of a student who was at school during his or her infectious period, other exposed students and staff should be quarantined for 14 days. The school should revert to distance learning when multiple cohorts have cases or 5 percent of students and staff test positive within a 14-day period. The district should revert to distance learning when 25 percent or more of its schools have been physically closed due to COVID-19 within 14 days. Closure decisions should be made in consultation with local health officers. After 14 days, school districts may return to in-person instruction with the approval of the local public health officer. 2) Strong mask requirements for anyone in the school In the updated guidance, all staff and students in 3rd grade and above will be required to wear a mask or face covering. Students in 2nd grade and below are strongly encouraged to wear a face covering. Students should be provided a face covering if they do not have one. The state has delivered over 18 million face coverings to schools to support them to reopen and ensure all students can participate in learning. 3) Physical distancing requirements & other adaptations In the updated guidance, CDPH requires that all adults stay 6 feet from one another and 6 feet away from children, while students should maintain 6 feet of distance from one another as practicable. Anyone entering the school must do a health screen, and any student or staff exhibiting a fever or other symptoms will be immediately sent home. The guidance also provides that if anyone in a student or staff member’s household is sick, they too should stay home. 4) Regular testing and dedicated contact tracing for outbreaks

by Michael Hart

If schools do get to return students to classroom most will be required to wear face covering and practice social distancing. at schools The public health guidance recommends staff in every California school be tested for COVID-19 periodically based on local disease trends and as testing capacity allows. The Governor also announced today that the state will provide resources and technical assistance for COVID-19 investigations in school settings. 5) Rigorous distance learning Over the course of the pandemic, most schools will likely face physical closure at some point due to COVID-19. The Legislature and Governor Newsom enacted a budget that provided $5.3 billion in additional funding to support learning, and set requirements to ensure schools provide rigorous and gradeappropriate instruction. Under newly enacted state law, school districts are required to provide: • Devices and connectivity so that every child can participate in distance learning. • Daily live interaction for every child with teachers and other students. • Class assignments that are challenging and equivalent to inperson instruction. • Targeted supports and interventions for English learners and special education students. Although we contacted all of the local school districts after the Governors announcement, we did not hear back from either Julian district. Both have been getting their plans finalize, the high school alread having announced initial plans to return to in-school learning, with the fall back on distance learning. The elementary district had not yet annonced their plans, but had been working on a hybrid model of in-school and at-home as well as full return and distance learning. Julie Weaver at Spencer Valley School: “If County Health conditions are met, Spencer Valley would offer school on campus instruction for all students, as was explained at our parent meeting on July 14th. If students cannot return to campus, Spencer will offer a distance learning model with live synchronous instruction as was recommended at Governor Newsom’s briefing today.” David MacLeod Superintendent/Principal at Warner: “Warner decided yesterday to have a two plan option, 100% back to school, or a 100% online option for parents to choose from. This announcement will delay that choice for parents until the county meets the requirements to get off the watchlist. We will shift gears to focus on opening at 100% online option.” The County Office of Education released a statement: “The San Diego County Office of Education will carefully review the new order issued today and work with local public health and our region’s schools to implement the guidance set forth. Public schools perform a vital role in California; our schools are the foundation of the success of both the next generation and the economy. We recognize that continuing distance learning poses challenges and hardship for many families. Local schools are doing everything they can to craft plans for the 2020-21 school year that have the academic, social, and emotional well-being of students and families at the center. By being thoughtful now, we can find effective solutions that keep our students and staff safe. Our approach has been to encourage schools to plan for a full spectrum of requirements around symptom screening, physical distancing, facial coverings, and limits on gathering sizes, recognizing that conditions may call for full or partial implementation of these measures based on state guidance. The new order clarifies some of the state-level expectations, which will help schools hone plans for when students do return to campuses.” All schools are set to return in early August, which may be enough time for the rest of the County to get its’ act together and be removed from the “Watch List.” Parents in the mean time are being asked to be paitent while everyone the State, County and districts themselves work out just what will transpire this school year. At this time the only thing that seems certain is there will be no high school sports and all extra caricular activities would move on-line. Once again the request was made to wear a face covering in public, stay physically distanced. Wash your hands. And beaware of any symtoms you may have. If you feel the need to be tested take advantage of the available testing in you area or see your personal physician and request one.

Strengthen Mental Health By Embracing Culture (Family Features) One in five U.S. adults experience mental illness each year, according to the National Alliance on Mental Illness, and adult African Americans are 20% more likely to experience mental health issues compared to the general population. Native American and Hispanic men don’t fair any better. "The factors that cause or exacerbate mental illness are often found in higher numbers among minorities," said Dr. Rufus Spann, chief clinical officer with Henry Health, a culturally sensitive mental health organization. "Tackling this problem requires a unique understanding of cultural differences." Organizations like Henry Health make access to mental health care accessible and convenient for minorities, removing barriers to seeking treatment. The organization offers culturally intentional care delivered by practitioners equipped to treat any population dealing with emotional and mental health issues, and believes effective care follows three essential principles: it puts culture first, is evidence based and is built on best practices. This means culture and life experiences are at the center of therapy. Patients can expect their narratives will be not only heard and acknowledged, but also put into perspective to help gain a greater understanding of their experiences. Research shows therapists whose patients perceive them as having cultural humility deliver improved therapy outcomes. That's why Henry Health therapists complete training that equips them with the skills needed to effectively address issues of race, ethnicity, class and culture. A scientifically validated tool measures therapists' cultural responsiveness and provides education and coaching to improve their cultural humility. In addition to cultural considerations, therapy involves the noted clinical best practices of cognitive behavioral therapy and trauma-informed care. Cognitive behavior therapy is a widely used therapeutic technique that has lasting impacts on mental health outcomes while traumainformed care ensures patients have access to safe spaces to examine, process and transcend trauma. Getting Started It's normal to be unsure or hesitant about trying therapy. Some organizations even offer free 15-minute consultations so you can speak with a therapist before officially registering. When you are ready to start therapy, the process is usually simple. For example, through Henry Health, you begin with an online registration form, receive an email matching you with a therapist, login to the member portal to schedule an appointment and join your session from the convenience of a phone, tablet or computer. Visit henry-health.com for more information or to register. Common Stressors Culturally responsive care can help improve a variety of stressors, including: * Anger * Trauma * Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder * Domestic violence continued on page 11

Live Theater in Julian Parks! I've been thinking for months now about the challenge of reopening performing arts -- reconnecting backcountry audiences with the music, dance and theatrical arts that are the life-blood of our community. There was welcome news from Poway and the germ of an idea this week, as its city council has decided to temporarily open city parks for use by houses of worship and fitness-oriented businesses. Through the new "Sharing Outdoor Space" program, there is no fee, but there is a permit process requiring a business certificate and commercial insurance. All COVID-19 safety guidelines will need to be adhered to, including rules regarding face coverings and social distancing. Supervisor Dianne Jacob said on Thursday that she plans on putting a similar county-wide measure up for vote at next month's Board of Supervisors meeting. Please join me today in asking Supervisor Jacob to extend the organization categories and activities to include Performing Arts. Julian has small outdoor venues in our local parks suitable for modest-sized productions. There are a handful of local for-profit and nonprofit entities with leadership, insurance and the ability to put on safe small events in our county parks. Voice your support for "Sharing Outdoor Space -- Performing Arts" with a brief email to dianne.jacob@sdcounty.ca.gov Eric Jones

In these stressful days, most of the news we hear and see is not uplifting and it does lack plain, old joy. A couple of months ago, I was driving home from Ramona to our home at the bottom of Banner Grade in my trusty Suzuki car on the Old Julian Highway. The poor old car has over 388,000 miles on it and my clutch cable expired when I shifted into 4th gear. Quickly realizing this engine would not bring me home, I tried to jam the shifter into 3rd gear so I would be able to make it without a tow. Well, "der Mensch denkt, Gott lenktl." In plain English, "man thinks, but God directs!" Yes, that forced shift with no clutch did not make it. Fact was, the shifter ended up in my hand and there was no gear! Most everybody carries some phone device. I do have a flip phone which was almost dead and was barely able to call AAA for my tow. That was approximately at 7 pm. The tow dropped "the Suzi" off at Pete's Auto Shop. I knew they could get it in working order. Only one small problem. Time went by, my phone was dead now and my tow guy could not be convinced that he could run me down the grade, even for a $20 tip. Well, God gave me two sturdy 76 year old legs and they could carry me down the Banner grade, which they did. It did not take me long to find out that it was "pitch black" down the grade. Fortunately, a light colored blanket was in the car and I even had a white #95 mask to wave with. Certainly someone would come by and give this old guy a lift. So I walked against the traffic and waved my mask. Approximately 10 vehicles went by. Wynola road was not far ahead. Realizing that I had a long way to go, it was time to switch strategy. It was time to ask for help! Who has always come to bail me out? Yes, it's my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ! Prayer is free, I must be in touch with Him. The strangest thing came about. Before even reaching the Wynola Road turn, a nice, modern sedan with a fine couple asked me if I needed help.You bet, I responded and told those beautiful people that I lived at Banner Recreational Ranch. They did remember me from my "Adopt a HIghway years." They shared they are members at the Julian church. And I shared with them that we live close to Shelter Valley and that is our church home now. Yes, the Marshall's are a fine, God-fearing couple and they live by God's will. My heart is still filled with much thankfulness about their kindness. Did I mention that they delivered me to my door and they even had to drive back up the hill to #248. Yes, my thanks are also to my Lord Jesus, who delivered instant help! And it's free when you have God on your side. Thank you for listening. Rejoice, not all is bad. Perhaps people should focus on what will unite us. All our blood is red and that color does not run! May the people of this land, repent, quit insulting God and focus to please God with our deeds, just like many do! America will be blessed again by living in His will! Dankeschön! Volker Brückmann

Black-Footed Cat Kittens Growing Fast At The San Diego Zoo Safari Park

HOME SERVICES

Mom is Nursing a Pair of 2-month-olds

Two young black-footed cats at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park cautiously ventured out of their den to take food from one of their wildlife care specialists for their daily feeding. The kittens—male Ryder and female Skyler—were born to mother Arwen and father Sawyer on April 28, 2020. Weighing 3 ounces at birth, the kittens now weigh about a pound and half each. They will grow to be 2 to 3 pounds and measure 14 to 20 inches in length when full-grown. They are still nursing from their mother, but the kittens have begun eating a carnivore diet. “We are honored to care for these kittens, and the adult black-footed cats at the Safari Park,” said Chelsea Davis, wildlife care specialist, San Diego Zoo Safari Park. “San Diego Zoo Global is one of 17 organizations in the U.S. participating in the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) Species Survival Plan (SSP) for this species. The birth of these two kittens, and all births, help further our knowledge and conservation of this species.” One of the world’s smallest cats, the black-footed cat is found in Botswana, Namibia and South Africa. Black-footed cats live in dry, open habitats, including desert, savanna and scrubland. Their name comes from the black pads and thick, black hair on the soles of their feet, which help protect them from the hot sand. Although it is small, the black-footed cat is sometimes called “the world’s deadliest cat.” With their keen sense of hearing and smell, their predation success rate of 60 percent is the highest of any feline. In a single night, one black-footed cat can consume up to 14 rodents and birds. This species is solitary, except for a short period of time during breeding or when a female is raising young. Due to its extremely shy and evasive nature, black-footed cats have received little attention from the conservation community. San Diego Zoo Global is part of the Black-footed Cat Working Group, bringing together multidisciplinary expertise on the species’ biology—and San Diego Zoo Global has taken a leading role in educating the cause of a disease that may threaten fragile black-footed cat populations. Motion-activated trail cameras and radio collars are used to learn more about the little felids. Biological samples collected from black-footed cats are stored in the Frozen Zoo® at the San Diego Zoo Institute for Conservation Research and provide a long-term renewable resource of genetic material, including DNA samples for studies into the conservation genetics of this species. Black-footed cats are listed as listed as Vulnerable on the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Red List of Threatened Species. In 2019, only an estimated 10,000 black-footed cats remained in their native habitats. Major threats to this species include deforestation, overgrazing by livestock (leading to a reduced prey base) and indirect poisonings. The San Diego Zoo Safari Park is home to six black-footed cats— the two kittens and four adult cats. While these kittens and their mother will remain off public view for now, two adult black-footed cats—male Sawyer and female Yuna—can be seen in their habitat at the Safari Park’s Nairobi Village.

• On July 20, 1865, Pierre Lallement, a Frenchman, arrives in the United States carrying the plans and components for the first modern bicycle. Although he built and patented the first bicycle, Lallement received no recognition and failed to acquire enough funds to open a factory. He sold the rights to the patent in 1868 and moved back to France. • On July 23, 1888, Raymond Chandler, creator of detective Philip Marlowe, is born in Chicago.

certain sectors of the economy were closed and was down to 18 by July 11. Also, the number of COVID-19 outbreaks in community settings followed a similar pattern of increasing as activities widened. While only eight community outbreaks were reported in May, in June, 33 were identified. This month, 38 community outbreaks have been reported, with restaurants/bars and private residences the most common locations. “The evidence is clear. As more people started to go out, especially young people, we started to see an increasing number of COVID-19 cases,” Wooten said. COVID-19 Impact in Younger People Dr. Scott Eisman, a pulmonary disease and critical care medicine expert at Scripps Memorial Hospital in Encinitas, said that while young people

think COVID-19 is not serious, the novel coronavirus could have serious health issues, especially in young people who smoke or vape. “Many younger people think that this is something that you’ll get, and you’ll overcome, and everything will be fine, but the complications of this illness are greater than the flu,” Eisman said. “We have younger and younger patients showing up with more and more significant complications.” Eisman said research has shown that COVID-19 attacks both lungs and their blood vessels which could result in blood clotting in the lungs and other parts of the body. COVID-19, Eisman said, can cause other problems, including stroke, cardiac issues, cerebral dysfunction, liver and kidney failure. “It causes blood clotting in general and that could create substantial problems in the ability of the lung to deliver oxygen,” Eisman said.

EAST OF PINE HILLS

My Thoughts by Michele Harvey

My History On The Internet

by Kiki Skagen Munshi

Modern Conveniences In 1949 Ed Skagen decided to put electricity in the old ranch house here East of Pine Hills. The place had been built in 1875, long before electricity was readily available in the countryside and people just made do without. The well down in the Cienega had a gas or diesel or some kind of pump that put water in a tank above the house, where gravity flow brought it to the kitchen sink but that was about all the “modcons” (as the Brits say) there were. Before the gas pump….we shudder at the thought. Probably a wagon pulled by a long-suffering horse. (Speaking of Brits, in 1966 a visit to a Cockney friend in London on the way back from India didn’t result in a longed-for shower; baths were only available in the public bathhouse a few blocks away. California wasn’t so backward after all…)

At any rate, putting electricity in required a couple of things. One was a line which the electric company provided, running it over Chicken Hill. One was a permit (see the attached) which was issued for the princely sum of $1. That’s right, one dollar. The estimated value of the improvements to the property was $340. Trust me, the real value was much more—ask my mother. The third was a book. How to Put Electricity in Your House or some such title. The book is around someplace but under enough dust that it couldn’t be located easily. It probably isn’t up to code any more, anyway. So Ed Skagen wired the house, quite legally and pretty effectively. At least, the wiring lasted over half a century and the house didn’t burn down. No more lamps to clean and provide not-quite-enough light to read comfortably by at night, no more getting up in the dark and lighting a candle to find the lamps to light the kitchen to lay the fire in the cookstove before you could make coffee. Let’s hear it for the modcons! The next year Ed put in a septic tank and running water and a toilet and a shower. How? He bought a book….

*** We need someone who will stand up and speak up and speak out for the people who need help, for people who are being discriminated against. And it doesn't matter whether they are black or white, Latino, Asian or Native American, whether they are straight or gay, Muslim, Christian, or Jews. — John Lewis ***

In 1996 I bought myself my first computer because my Selectric typewriter finally gave up after many years of good service. The computer came with a printer and a lot of hours of free internet service which I was anxious to try. I never got to try those hours because even though I told my then husband not to go near my computer, every night when I was at work he spent many hours playing internet games on my computer using up all of my hours. I’ve told my children and many other people that when you decide to divorce someone the decision isn’t based on one event or even on one characteristic. The decision is based on many things and this was one of those things. After I broke up with Dennis and moved to my own place I was able to get an inexpensive internet service. I don’t remember the name of it. It may have been Abacus. Back then, in order to get onto a website you had to type http\ then some other information, then the actual website address. If you were lucky, you hooked in. To list items on EBay, first I had to take a photograph of the item, move it to GEOcities and then move it from there to EBay. It was a lot of work, but I needed the income. We emailed each other and I don’t think I knew anyone who had a personal website. Saving information was done on a 5 ½” floppy disk. I don’t know why they were called floppies because they weren’t. Soon were transitioned to the compact 3” floppies, also not actually floppy. After that we all moved on to cd discs and now we use thumb drives which we can easily fit in our hand or pocket. This process is very similar to how music modernized, except music took two ways to go. One way that I remember began with reel to reel tapes. 78 rpm (rotations per minute) records came about and then 33 1/3 rpm LPs and 45s which is the size that fit in Juke boxes. Reel to Reel tape also was the parent of 4 track tapes. These were music tapes that were encased in plastic and much easier to transport than reel to reel tapes. A 4 track tape player could easily be installed under the dashboard of a car. I know. I installed some myself. 4 track players are mono players. 8 track players are basicly the same as 4 track players, however they are stereo. After those came cassette tapes. Originally not looped, they are much more compact that the track tapes and all are still available for sale of the Internet. Now we mostly use CDs. My first interactive moments on the internet were using emails with people who bought products from me on EBay. I chatted with a few friends and that was pretty much it until Mike and I began dating. He and his sister introduced me to AOL MESSENGER. I could hang out on MESSENGER waiting for a friend to show up and no one that I didn’t know would see me. I don’t remember exactly when or how we quit using MESSENGER, but at one point it went by the wayside. I sold a lot of items on EBay in the mid-1990s when the number of items was around 900,000. Now they sell millions of items each month and a few of the sellers can be not as nice. I’ve been on Facebook for a lot of years. I hesitated to get on it and then I jumped in completely. Initially I checked my page before and after work. I checked it before I went to bed and I got into a lot of trouble with comments that I made freely. I still get in trouble occasionally and it amazes me when I see how people act so aggressively toward people who disagree with their opinions Sometimes I remind people that one of the great things about our country is that we can disagree with each other and we can even criticize our government without getting jailed or executed. In writing my column I occasionally research subjects. I GOOGLE a person, place or thing and sometimes get so wrapped up in my research that I head off on different tangents. I would never say that I waste time looking things up on GOOGLE because I learn so much. I truly educate myself. However, I often find myself staying up way too late while reading so many interesting facts and biographies. Today I found out that the first item sold by Pierre Omidyar the founder of EBay was a broken laser pointer. It sold for $14.83. He contacted the buyer asking if he realized that the pointer was broken and the man replied that he collected broken laser pointers. This was years before the name EBay came along but it sure was the beginning of something huge. During my time of selling on EBay, I helped to support myself and my two teenaged sons. I also had two jobs and made and sold dessert breads. We do what we can and we do what we must. These days I am mostly retired. However I am raising chickens. Actually my entire family is raising chickens. I look for help and for information on Facebook mostly. Julian has a Backyard Chicken page and the Chicken Chick has a Facebook page and a website. Even though I’ve raised chickens in the past, I didn’t raise them all of the way because when I divorced my children’s father I couldn’t take the chickens with me. These days, with help from internet friends I’m learning all sorts of interesting things and I’m able to pass along a lot of good information. These are my thoughts.

Keeping Math Skills Up-toDate While School is Closed

(StatePoint) The transition from in-person to online learning isn’t easy, particularly when it comes to mathematics, a subject where many students benefit from classroom learning and individualized attention from their teacher. With closures affecting schools and universities for the foreseeable future, sustaining one’s math skills is very important, as research has shown that academic gains can quickly be lost without practice -- on average, students lose approximately 2.6 months of learning in math over a typical continued on page 11

Reflecting On George Floyd

by Gred Courson

Our country, America, is full of very caring people who work day and night to assure that our society remains a good and just one, and who work day and night to improve our lot. At the same time, in contrast, we live in a society marked by abuses of all kinds. Reflecting on this contrast, I am reminded of something that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. said decades ago: that every abusive act cancels out the good that is done. By virtue of that cancellation, reason then tells us that we wind up with one big zero. Nothing. The way we use the word 'abuse' these days often has to do with misuse, like the misuse of authority or the misuse of alcohol and drugs, and the way we spot misuse in all of its forms is through a well-developed sense of conscience. The existence of excess also helps us define what is abusive, and in determining excess one only needs, as well, to hear the voice of conscience, which is innate. Most human beings are born with a conscience, a virtue demonstrated by the fact that most small children are very sensitive to right and wrong. Any parent knows this. Children come to their parents with problems of right and wrong, just and unjust, fair and unfair, and part of being a parent is to draw out of their children, and enhance, fully, their innate conscience. And surprisingly, even animals have this sense of right and wrong. For example, studies of chimpanzees clearly show a sense of conscience. American society suffers from diseases of excess. The most obvious example is the epidemic of obesity Americans now face. Diabetes is also epidemic, caused by excess sugar in the diet. Arthritis, excess toxic material in the joints, which deteriorates their structural integrity. Cancer, excessive exposure to the overwhelming presence of toxic substances in our surroundings, in the food we eat, and in the water we drink and bathe in. Heart disease, excessive amounts of harmful cholesterol gumming up the arteries. Examples abound, but I think I've made my point. Medical statisticians will tell you that every one of these diseases is epidemic in American society. Getting back to our innate conscience, it's important to point out that there are people without this innate sense. The world of psychology defines someone without a conscience as a "sociopath," and their prevalence in American society is well understood. Four out of every one hundred Americans is sociopathic, which is a startling figure published fourteen years ago. And in that publication, the author, Martha Stout, PhD, stated that the number is growing. We've many people in our society who do not possess the innate discernment which belongs to conscience, and a disturbing psychology accompanies this lack.

Photo by Allison Zaucha/The Women's March Foundation 2018 from the book "Together We Rise" published by Harper-Collins Our conscience tells us when something is excessive, or when someone is being excessive. The term 'police brutality' immediately denotes acts of excess, and the outcry against it the work of conscience. Excessive environmental crises, like enormous oil spills; enormous amounts of radioactive waste from nuclear facilities; excessive timber harvesting by clearcutting; an unconscious cultural tendency seemingly unique to Americans augments, expands, overdevelops, multiplies, increases, overproduces, overharvests everything it touches, often at the expense of conscience, whose voice is obstructed, muted by allurements. Excess goes both ways, like people so rich that they fly to Vienna for dinner, and people so poor that dinner is a miracle; and how is it that such a wealthy and powerful society can have homelessness? Our conscience is awakened by such contrasting extremes and tells us something is wrong. And then are the little things. A sick neighbor can't rest while a leaf blower blares nearby. Outdoor laborers in city and rural areas use small and large fossil-fuel-driven equipment which pollutes the air and sends excessive noise over property lines day in and day out all year long. They know there are quieter ways of doing their work, yet seem to care little about the air and noise pollution they cause, and add to the stress already present in life. A student can't concentrate because six uncontrolled dogs next door won't stop barking, and will keep barking for hours. Where is their caretaker? A violent German shepherd running loose in a neighborhood kills someone's beloved Spaniel. An outdoor art festival is ruined by motorcycles with illegal exhaust systems roaring by all day long. Since when is it okay to impose that kind of horrifying noise on others? Horrifying? Yes: excessive. The lack of conscience on the part of the bikers is glaring, not to mention the managing agency, CHP, who allows the abusive noise to continue. Wealthy investors, with the help of the real estate industry, buy up hundreds of homes, large and small, in rural areas everywhere, for vacation rentals, and local people have great difficulty finding adequate housing or even have to move away. As I said, we live in a society marked by abuse. The things stated above are noticeable trespasses, yet then are the subtler ones, like the unspoken notion that everyone is supposed to be able to "take it." Another notion recently contrived is "get over it." And the abuse goes on, adding to the stresses which, among many other consequences, continued on page 12

Strawberries have been considered a tasty and nutritious treat for hundreds of years. Nutritional experts believe that strawberries are as close as you can get to a perfect fruit. They’re low in calories (just 27 per 100 grams) and fat-free, but packed with nutrients, including vitamins and antioxidants that bring numerous health benefits. Eating just five strawberries gives you more vitamin C than an orange. The vitamin content in strawberries drops quickly, so you need to eat them as soon as you can after they’ve been picked. The strawberry got its name from the common practice of growing berries under straw to protect them from winter cold and late spring frosts. A member of the rose family, the strawberry sometimes gives off a rose-like aroma. Many speculate about how the luscious fruit was discovered.

It is known that the strawberry goes as far back as the Romans, and perhaps even the Greeks. The strawberry plant was originally

grown in Northern Europe, but wild species also are found in Russia, Chile and North America. At one time, wild strawberries grew

Eye Chart

There doesn't seem to be any type of antique that isn't sold at auctions, flea markets or shops. We were surprised years ago at a flea market when a dealer was offering a wooden artificial leg. It was sold an hour after we saw it. He said it went to a woman who wanted to make a statue, and she had wondered if he had any more. We have seen many sets of false eyes sold, samples of what surgeons would use to replace a missing eye. And bottles of cures too strange to describe. This is a 19th-century optician's eye test chart made of black painted wood from Andrew Spindler Antiques & Design, a shop in Essex, Massachusetts. It has a metal lamp visor and a

linen scroll with letters of different sizes. It was purchased at an antiques show in New York City about 18 years ago for about $1,800. It has since been rewired and the scroll restored, and it was priced at $2,200. Keep your eyes open at antiques shops and you may find another eye test chart. It will certainly be a rare antique.

This 1880s optician’s eye test chart was made by Globe Optical Co. of Boston and was for sale in a Massachusetts antiques shop for $2,200. It’s painted wood with a metal lamp visor and has a linen scroll with rows of letters in graduated sizes.

Wonder what the prescribed glasses looked like? Lots of collectors can show you their favorite odd antique. Sometimes those are the most fun. *** Q: Do you know who made the first commercial ice cream scoop or dipper, and what it looked like? Any other interesting information about serving ice cream in a soda shop would help me with a school paper. A: We are told George Washington liked ice cream made from ice cut from a frozen river. Without refrigeration, ice was a luxury, so ice cream was for the very rich. The first U.S. ice cream factory was started in Philadelphia in 1851. The first ice cream scoop was made in Pennsylvania in 1876 by George William Clewell. It was shaped like a tin cone with an attached handle. The knob on top was turned to move a metal strip that scraped the lump of ice cream from the scoop. Later, scoops

were made in fancy shapes. The most famous is the heartshaped scoop made in 1925. There were also heart-shaped dishes to hold the ice cream and toppings for a sundae. The few heart-shaped scoops known today have sold for over $1,000 each.

This summer, families are looking for fun things to do right at home: spattering paint for art projects, scouring recipe books for creative treats, and even trying out eccentric popcorn toppings to enliven family movie time. Everyone loves to watch a good movie. But, parents this summer can help their kids make a movie of their own – one they’ll be proud to share. Most families have access to smartphones, tablets and digital cameras that capture high-quality video, and today’s digital editing tools are both powerful and easy to use. Making a short movie can be a great project for families to work on together. There’s a lot to consider when envisioning and creating a movie. These six steps will help you get rolling (spend as much time in each step as you choose): 1. Decide on your story: First think about a general theme, such as fantasy, dinosaurs, sports, comedy or mystery. Then write down the answers to these questions: What will happen in your story? What problem must be solved? How will that happen? What will happen at the end of your movie? 2. Create your characters – This great fun, especially for those who like to work with their hands and get creative. Kids can: • Create paper figures and attach arms and legs that move. • Fashion clay models or papier-mâché figures or toys. • Play the characters themselves, dressed in costumes or paper masks. • Cast the movie with plastic toys: farm or jungle animals, dinosaurs or superhero figures (these might have ready-made “sets” if you have play mats with printed roads, buildings, farms or other scenes). 3. Write and rehearse a script – Ask yourself: Who is telling the story? How do the characters interact in each scene? How do they express themselves? Write some dialogue for the characters and practice each scene (capturing “bloopers” is the most fun of all). 4. Consider lighting, music and sound effects – Is it a dark and dreary day? You could prerecord a scream or a growl (or have fun doing this on cue). If children play instruments, work their music into the story, such as tapping a drum slowly to mimic a heartbeat, or playing a violin ever more rapidly to add excitement. 5. Shooting and editing the movie – Use digital devices or cameras to capture the video. Edit the shots, and add music and sound effects, using a free or low-cost video-editing program. Here are a few highly rated editing apps to try out: • Apple iMovie – for their mobile devices and desktop computers – free. • Boinx iStopmotion – for stopmotion style movies; Apple only – modestly priced.

When The State Becomes The Pusher

by Jon Coupal

We all know that there is an endless list of addictive substances that present a real danger to people. Alcohol, cocaine and heroin just to name a few. But a powerful addictive substance provided by our own government is public money. Few things can get individuals and institutions more hooked than that. Although we’ve known for a long time that government largess often comes with negative consequences, what recently brought this to mind was a series of stories revealing which businesses and nonprofit organizations received public funds from the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP). These reports question whether the program — intended to preserve jobs by helping small businesses get through the pandemic — has served its intended purpose. For example, the Small Business Administration released information which shows that private equity-backed chains and some companies owned by members of Congress received money from the Paycheck Protection Program along with almost 90,000 employers that would not commit to retaining their employees. Just in the Sacramento area, more than 800 companies borrowed money from the federal government including powerful lobbying organizations and law firms. Although initially resistant to releasing data on PPP disbursements, the federal government relented when faced with possible litigation. While the exact amounts of the loans to specific recipients were not disclosed, the Treasury Department and Small Business Administration made available a list of the thousands of businesses, nonprofits and others that received at least $150,000. To be clear, this column is not necessarily a criticism of the program either in its intent or execution. In fact, unlike other grants of government support, PPP is more than justified given that it was government which slammed the brakes

on the nation’s economy by ordering everyone to shelter in place. When government shuts businesses, then government has a responsibility to ameliorate the economic impacts. The pandemic presented such a threat that an immediate and dramatic response was necessary. Nor should there be an expectation that PPP was going to be efficient. Government programs by their nature are inefficient and fraught with waste. This is doubly true with programs created in response to an emergency. The point here is that even the most well-intentioned and necessary government distribution of public funds will be accompanied by negative consequences. The selling point of PPP was to address the threat to small mom and pop businesses barely hanging on during the crisis. It is doubtful that many Americans thought large lobbying firms with millions in cash reserves needed help from the federal government. Businesses, nonprofits and individuals should always be careful when accepting public dollars even when clearly entitled to participate in a government program. For example, some conservative nonprofit organizations, such as the Ayn Rand Institute, which received PPP funds exposed themselves to charges of hypocrisy by the liberal media for taking public funds. Of course, criticism of nonprofits such as Planned Parenthood were more muted. For private businesses, nonprofits and individuals, merely receiving public dollars is not inherently evil. Nonetheless, government money can be addictive and, over time, can result in less freedom and independence. The examples of this are endless. Everything from government contracting to welfare to so-called “publicprivate partnerships” can create a culture of dependence and, in a free country, that can be dangerous. *** Jon Coupal is the president of the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association..

*** Before we went on any protest, whether it was sit-ins or the freedom rides or any march, we prepared ourselves, and we were disciplined. We were committed to the way of peace - the way of non-violence - the way of love the way of life as the way of living. — John Lewis ***

Fire Safety For Furry Family Members

(Family Features) If you have a fire escape plan in place for your home, you're steps ahead of many Americans. According to the National Fire Protection Association, only 30% of American households have developed and practiced a home fire escape plan. It's important for families to stay ahead of the curve and be prepared in the event of a fire. If an emergency occurs, every member of the household should be accounted for, including pets. Every year, 500,000 pets suffer from smoke inhalation and 40,000 die due to home fires, according to the American Veterinary Medical Foundation. With 90% of pet owners stating they consider their animals members of the family, according to UBS, it is important to be prepared to rescue four-legged friends when disaster strikes. "Pets are part of our families, so it's important to recognize they're vulnerable to the same fire risks as people," said Sharon Cooksey, Kidde's fire safety expert. "There are simple ways to keep pets safe at home. Most importantly, recognize every second counts in case of fire, so pet owners should install smoke and carbon monoxide alarms as well as fire extinguishers. Make sure alarms are replaced every 10 years and fire extinguishers every 12 years."

Green-minded grocery shoppers spend more time in the bulk aisle than your average consumer given their preference for avoiding disposable packaging on single-use food items and products. Credit: leyla.a, FlickrCC. Dear EarthTalk: Any tips for reducing the amount of disposable plastic I use for food storage? -- J. Spencer, Gaithersburg, MD Analysts estimate that of the over six billion tons of plastic produced worldwide since the 1950s, we have recycled only nine percent of it and incinerated another 12 percent. The remaining, some 4.8 billion tons of plastic is either still in use, filling up landfills, or littered into streets, streams and eventually the ocean. About a third of the plastic produced worldwide is for singleuse applications (bottles, bags, utensils, food storage, etc.)—and it is these items that most commonly end up on the side of the road. Researchers discussed in a 2019 paper in Nature that if we do nothing to step up flagging efforts to reduce, reuse and recycle plastics, we could have three times as much of it littered into the global environment by 2060. So, what’s an environmentally conscious consumer to do? For starters, avoid getting plastic bags at the store. Either bring your own reusable one or if you need to go disposable, at least opt for paper that can be recycled or composted. And if you are food shopping, gravitate toward the bulk items aisle where you can buy just the right amount without unnecessary extra packaging. Another way to cut down on single use plastic is ditching plastic straws. Americans go through about 500 million plastic straws daily. Opting for reusable straws (metal, silicone, bamboo or glass, anyone?)—or no straw at all—is one of the simplest ways to cut down on disposable plastic. According to the non-profit Center for EcoTechnology (CET), the kitchen is one place where you can definitely make some easy adjustments to save plastic. For starters, ditch the plastic wrap; it’s difficult to recycle and can clog recycling processing machines. One great alternative is beeswax paper, which is reusable, washable and compostable. (Make sure to wash it with cold water only so the wax doesn’t melt.) “Another alternative to plastic wrap is storing your food in glass storage containers or glass jars,” adds CET. “Glass is 100% recyclable and can be recycled endlessly without loss in quality or purity.” Putting dish cloths to use is another way to eschew plastic wrap for keeping produce fresh. Simply wrap up those fruits or veggies in a cloth instead of plastic—or put them in a bowl and cover with a dish cloth and rubber band for a tight seal—and put ‘em in the fridge. One often overlooked environmental downside of the coronavirus situation is that restaurants throw in so much disposable plasticware for to-go and delivery orders—whether customers need it or not. That’s why a coalition of 120 environmental groups recently teamed up to send letters to seven national food delivery companies asking they change their default ordering process to one that does not automatically include utensils, napkins, condiments and straws in order to reduce the tsunami of single-use plastic pollution entering our oceans, landfills and incinerators.

Protect your pet - and your human family - with these tips. Minimize smoke alarm reactions. Dogs may become unsettled or anxious when a smoke alarm sounds, running and hiding rather than heading toward the door. Particularly if your pet shows signs of agitation when you test the alarm, enlist assistance from professional trainers to help your canine friend learn how to properly respond. Some websites offer online tips, too. Use window cling alerts. In an emergency, first responders need to be able to quickly assess the number of pets in a home. Consider attaching a non-adhesive decal to a window near your front door to let rescuers know how many animals are inside. Account for pets in evacuation plans. Pets should always be included in a family's evacuation plan. Always involve your pets and stay aware of their typical hiding spots or safe places where they often nap, in case you must evacuate quickly. Be sure to practice your evacuation plan periodically. Also assign a family member to be responsible for each pet's escape. Keep an emergency kit with food, medication, a leash and collars near the exit. Keep alarms current. Smoke and carbon monoxide alarms must be replaced after 10 years. In addition to testing alarms once each week, check the manufacture date on your smoke and carbon monoxide alarms to make sure they're current. If they're older than 10 years of age, it's time to replace them. Some options, like Kidde's WireFree Interconnected Alarms, feature built-in 10-year sealed batteries and offer simple setup without the hassle of hardwiring or a Wi-Fi connection. Plan ahead for emergency care. If the unthinkable happens, make sure your pets will be cared for. Save contact information for your veterinarian in a place where you and other family members can easily access it, such as your phone contacts list or a cloud-based shared file. Research local boarding options, hotels that allow pets and friends or family members who might take in your pet temporarily. Also be sure your pet's microchip information is current in case you become separated in an emergency. For more pet fire safety tips, visit Kidde.com/petsafety.

DAV Provides A Century of Care For Disabled Veterans (NAPSI)—From a World War I veteran who lost both legs to a Vietnam vet suffering the effects of Agent Orange to a young Marine with post-traumatic stress disorder finding her way after returning home from Afghanistan—many of America’s veterans live with physical, mental and emotional injuries that impact their lives as a result of military service. They often need support with things such as navigating the complex Department of Veterans Affairs system to access veterans benefits, including health care and education benefits or identifying employment opportunities after military service. And because of their service-connected health conditions, they can be particularly vulnerable during health epidemics and economic downturns. Fortunately, DAV (Disabled American Veterans) has been providing a century of care to help disabled veterans of all generations adjust to life back home. For the last 100 years, this nonprofit organization has offered a range of services from assisting veterans in accessing the benefits earned through their service to finding meaningful employment and supporting their families. DAV has continued to evolve and provide new care as veterans’ needs have changed. However, one tradition remains a constant: DAV’s services are provided to veterans and their families at no cost or obligation to them.  DAV’s benefits advocates are located nationwide to assist veterans with accessing the health care, financial, disability and educational benefits they’ve earned. For those needing guidance on the transition to civilian life, DAV advocates provide benefits counseling at nearly 100 military installations throughout the country. They also assist veterans with filing initial claims for their VA benefits, as well as providing everyday support.   DAV is also committed to ensuring our nation’s warriors have the tools, resources and opportunities they need to competitively enter the job market and secure meaningful employment. DAV helps facilitate more than 144 career fairs annually, including virtual and live events to connect veterans with employers who are committed to hiring them. DAV offers advice to job seekers on how to succeed in their careers while educating companies on the value they bring to the workforce. To find a schedule of DAV’s career fairs, go to jobs. dav.org.  DAV also helps address the underlying issues of homelessness. Studies show that PTSD is a leading contributor to the homelessness of nearly 40,000 American veterans, with another 1.4 million at risk. DAV’s Homeless Veterans Initiative promotes partnership between the organization and federal, state, county and local governments to develop programs to assist homeless veterans in becoming selfsufficient.   When natural disasters strike, from hurricanes to wildfires, the DAV team is on the ground to help our heroes. DAV provides financial assistance to help eligible veterans and their families secure food, warm clothes and shelter and distributes supply kits with basic comfort items. In the past five years alone, the program has provided more than $3.6 million to assist nearly 10,000 victims.  Another growing need, particularly for the aging veteran population, is transportation to medical appointments. Since 1987, DAV has organized no-cost rides with volunteer drivers to get veterans to their scheduled care at VA medical facilities. During this time, DAV has donated 3,678 vehicles at a cost of nearly $85 million to the program and has provided more than 615,000 rides annually.   For those needing a little household assistance or other services, DAV also offers a searchable online database, VolunteerforVeterans. org, where veterans and their caregivers can find the help they need, from local volunteers for basic tasks like doing yardwork or running errands.   Since 1920, DAV has been a leader in strengthening federal programs, benefits, health care and transition services for the men and women who served, their families and survivors. Its advocacy efforts on Capitol Hill are guided by DAV members through the adoption of resolutions at its national convention, and last year, with the strength of more than 1 million members, nearly 40 of these critical priorities were included in legislation or other means, with five becoming law.  We salute DAV for 100 years of tireless service and thank them for the work still to come in caring for Americaís veterans. To learn more and get the help you need, visit DAV.org.

everywhere from Canada to the Carolinas and westward beyond the Appalachian Mountains. Before modern refrigeration, a day of “strawberring” meant a long day of picking, followed by gorging on delicious strawberry treats -- pies, tarts, shortcake and all the ripe strawberries the family could consume. Berries that were not eaten were preserved as jam, jelly, sauce, strawberry vinegar and strawberry tonic, a medicinal drink. The remaining berries were dried on flat rocks for several days. These dried berries would be used throughout the fall and winter in breads, cakes, puddings and porridge. The first American species of strawberry was cultivated in about 1835. Today, the strawberry is the leading small fruit crop in the U.S. It is farmed from Florida to Alaska, with the largest strawberry growing centers located in California and Florida. When picking or buying packages of strawberries, look for ripe, shiny and brilliantly colored berries without any soft or brown patches. Never buy strawberries that are green or hard, or that look dry, dull or wrinkled. When buying berries packed in a basket, check the bottom to see if there is a juice stain. This means that the strawberries at the bottom are crushed. Always dispose of any berries that have signs of mildew or are rotten, as they’ll contaminate the rest. Refrigerating strawberries ruins the flavor, and the strawberry aroma is easily picked up by other foods in the refrigerator. Store the berries in a cool place. Strawberries should be lightly rinsed, not washed, before serving, and eaten as soon as possible. This recipe for Strawberry Flower Cups is an easy way to serve fresh berries as a dessert or to use as a beautiful decoration. The strawberries are

Shifting your focus from the familiar grind to your mental well-being is a process you can tackle one step at a time. Get started with these tips from Men Thrive, a digital community designed by Black men for Black men that focuses on providing the tools they need to thrive rather than simply survive. Check In Be honest with yourself about how and what you're feeling. Acknowledge your feelings even if you can't name them. It can be more powerful than you may think. Then schedule a wellness call to assess your current quality of mental and physical health. Talk to Your Tribe Decide what you need from the people closest to you and be that to them. Identify a moment you would normally say, "I'm good" when you're actually not and talk about what's on your mind. Be honest if you don't know what to do with what you feel and acknowledge that you're tired of ignoring it, bottling it in and feeling the pressure. Seek Culturally Responsive Advice Seek information and advice from an expert, like a therapist, who has professional and cultural intelligence that relates to your experiences and story. Research shows treatment outcomes greatly improve when cultural and historical knowledge are included in the approach to care. Engage in the Process Place your focus on showing up whole, operating with joy and living with power. Aggressively pursue actions required to achieve a thriving lifestyle. Join a Community A sense of community is essential to improving your mental health. A resource like Men Thrive can give you access to a community and a set of powerful self-mastery tools such as live segments, podcasts and guided meditation.

cut to resemble flower petals then stuffed with sweetened cream cheese. It’s a cool, delicious way to showcase these beautiful berries! STRAWBERRY FLOWER CUPS 32 fresh, whole strawberries, large 12 ounces cream cheese, softened 1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar 1/4 teaspoon almond extract 2 tablespoons semisweet or milk chocolate, grated 1. Lightly rinse the strawberries and gently place them in a colander to drain. Cut a thin slice from the stem end of each strawberry to create a base so that the berries will stand upright on the flattened end. Place the berries, cut side down, on a cutting board. Carefully cut each berry into 4 wedges, but do not cut through the bottom. Use your finger to gently press down in the center of the berry so that the wedges fan out just slightly, taking care not to break the berries apart. Set the berries aside. 2. Using a small mixing bowl, beat together the cream cheese, confectioners’ sugar and almond extract until light and fluffy. Gently fold-in half of the grated chocolate.

Wednesday - July 22, 2020

Volume 35 - Issue 51

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) A perplexing situation needs to be dealt with in order to avoid problems later on. Rely on both your own sense of what's right and the advice of someone you trust to help work it out. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Let your sharp Taurean business insight guide you when considering a "dream deal." Without all the facts, it could turn into a nightmare. Remember: Investigate before investing. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Sharing so much of your time and your gifts with others is what you do so well, and this week, don't be surprised if others want to share with you. Enjoy the experience. You've earned it. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) A difficult personal situation seems to defy efforts to resolve it. Perhaps you're too close to it. Take some time to reassess what went wrong, and then see where things can be set right. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Leonine pride could be piqued a bit when someone else appears to be standing in your light. Be patient and resist the urge to growl at the interloper. You'll soon be the "mane" attraction again. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) A professional situation benefits from your clear assessment of the circumstances involved. On the personal side, that new relationship looks as if it will continue to grow. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) More good news about a loved one helps reassure others who could not share your more-optimistic view before. Continue to help everyone in need of your comforting presence. *** If you’re not hopeful and optimistic, then you just give up. You have to take the long hard look and just believe that if you’re consistent, you will succeed. — John Lewis ***

continued from page 5

SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Creating new friendships could turn out to be the unexpected but welcome result of reconnecting with old friends. The weekend is a good time for fun and games. Enjoy! SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) The more you learn about what you plan to do, the more likely you are to consider making some changes in your plans. This is good; don't resist it. Instead, go with it. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) A career change is still in your aspect, but a potential workplace change could be what you've been looking for. See what develops before making any drastic moves. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Your energy levels are high this week, which should help you get all your workaday tasks done and still leave you with enough breath to handle some domestic challenges. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) An unexpected fluke could cause problems with your plans. If so, use the time to troll for other available options, and you might be pleasantly surprised at what turns up. BORN THIS WEEK: You enjoy the company of lots of people, but you also can treasure the moments shared with just one special person. © 2020 King Features Syndicate, Inc.

contribute so much to the epidemics mentioned above. Conscience is often obstructed by the idea "That's the way it is." Yet when the way things are is wrong, then they have to be changed, and the enemy of change is laziness. In his book The People of the Lie, a treatise on evil, the late M. Scott Peck, MD, discusses laziness. Dr. Peck, a psychiatrist, says that all evil is lazy, but not all laziness is evil. When the "way it is" is wrong and needs to change, any laziness obstructing such change is the laziness belonging to the evil. Here, Dr. Peck does not mean the kind of evil portrayed by Hollywood. He is not talking about diabolical evil, but the everyday evils precipitated by so many people because of their laziness, a laziness which obstructs the workings of conscience, and which allows, among other things, excess to persist. And then is the evil precipitated by the sociopaths among us. There have been times in American history when large scale abuse has been met by such overwhelming public outcry that Congress and the Senate and State Assemblies could not es-cape their responsibility to the common people. Their task was placed before them by truckloads and trainloads and crates of letters from common Americans. It was not so long ago that Americans wrote letters, and their letter-writing created change. Our National Forests are one result of an outcry against the deep and widespread abuse of the natural world. The ending of the war in Vietnam is another example. And Americans can do this again, if the outrage is persistent enough, and thoughtful communication reaches historic proportions, and reaches the right eyes and ears. Noting our current issues, has the spell of disempowerment finally been broken? Will people of conscience raise their voice by the millions once again and do what they've forgotten: participate in their own governance, and government? Small abuses accumulate. They add up. Add again the large ones: on a city street in Minneapolis a police officer presses his knee into the neck of a handcuffed man laying face down in the street. The officer's other knee is on his back. A nearby grocery store clerk said the man had passed a counterfeit bill. The subdued man cries out for relief, is ignored, and the ignorance is captured on film. Brutal excessive ignorance. We all know the rest. And how does America want to be remembered? Who of Americans who saw the news went to bed that night telling themselves, "That's the way it is." ? Or, in contrast, fell asleep knowing that caring people would work to resolve the issue in a just manner, and that a sense of personal responsibility among the people at large, including themselves, would compel them to communicate their anguish in ways that fostered change. Where will we be as time proceeds? Still bogged down in so many attitudes which cancel out the good that is done; which in the end leave us, as Dr. King pointed out, with nothing? Or will the tide of outrage born of conscience bring us its fruits? And what are the fruits of an active well-developed conscience? First, justice, which is balance, and where there is balance there is harmony, and peace.
