The fire was contained within minutes and although no cause was initially reported, neighbors had reported what they thought were fire works being used.

What San Diegans Need To Do For County To Get Off State Watchlist

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

On July 3, the County was placed on the state’s Monitoring List after the region’s case rate went above 100 positive cases per every 100,000 people three days in a row. The County has not met that metric since then, and the case rate stands now at 154.5(as of Saturday). What does San Diego County need to do to get off the watchlist? The answer is in San Diegans’ hands. Local health officials continue to urge San Diegans to wear a face covering, avoid gatherings, maintain six feet distance from anyone outside their household, wash their hands thoroughly, and take other preventive measures to slow the spread of COVID-19 and prevent community outbreaks(currently at 11 for the past week). “We hope that the actions we’ve taken in the past few weeks will help us flatten the curve and bring the number of cases down,” said Wilma Wooten, M.D., M.P.H., County public health officer. “With your help, we expect cases will decrease.” After the County lowers its case rate to the state’s metric for at least three days, it comes off the Monitoring List. If that does not occur, the County will continued on page 8

In a letter delivered to parents last week Julian Elementary School announced its intention to begin the year with distance learning: Dear Parents, As I’m sure most of you have heard, the Governor has required all schools to go to distance learning in San Diego and many other counties until COVID 19 data improves. Our hope and original plan was to have all our students back on campus on August 11, but now we will begin with distance learning on that date. We don’t know how long this will last, but distance learning will be a part of your son or daughter’s education program this school year. Our campus and staff are ready to reopen when the time comes. More details will come home when we know more about when that might be. I know for most of you this is not your first choice. We miss all of our students and look forward to the time when we all be together again. Distance learning will be different from the end of last school year. Our teachers have a robust online program planned and we are working as a district to make this a positive transition. Students will log into their computer daily to work with teachers and get support. We will offer students devices and some supplies on an as needed basis. Lunches will still be available and a schedule will be out soon. Similarly Julian High , Spencer Valley and Warner all confirmed that they would be doing the same. 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. Thanks. Julie Weaver, Spencer Valley School Warner decided 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 watch list. We will shift gears to focus on opening at 100% online option. Sincerely, David MacLeod Superintendent/Principal Warner Unified School District. At the High School, which had previously announced plans for on-Campus learning: I requested the waiver for JHS and was denied. We are planning for Distance Learning until such time we will be able to reconvene in-person instruction. This represents part B of our Reopening plan. Dr. Hefflin All of the schools have been developing the distance learning plans in anticipation of not being able to return campus and have promised a far more robust experience for students than they were able to piece together in the spring when they found themselves between a rock and the pandemic. All of the districts have indicated they are prepared as soon as permission is granted to welcome back students. Cleaning and social distancing that will keep both students and staff safe. Teachers are exploring a variety for face shields and mask options. San Diego County Office of Education will carefully review

Comet NEOWISE Makes a Stunning Appearance

Volcan Mountian Foundation

Looking East

by Colleen Bradley (with Jay Evarts)

The map is changing. A series of nearly 1,500 acres of land preservation successes on the east side of the Volcan Mountains brings conservation on the ‘far side’ of the mountain into focus. Accented by the Volcan Mountain Foundation's (VMF) acquisition this spring of 23 acres at the Teofulio Summit, the San Felipe Valley portion of the Volcan Mountains' land preservation map is changing ― for good! The Volcan Mountain Foundation has illustrated the collective land preservation progress for the Volcan Mountains through its Focused Planning Area (FPA) map. A patchwork of colors within the boundaries of Highways 78, 79, and County Route S-2 depicts the conserved lands and reflects the collaborative effort that it takes to preserve the 15-mile long range. Since VMF’s founding in 1988, over 18,000 acres have been colored-in and ADDED to Volcan’s conserved lands ― amounting to over 37,000 acres conserved within the 52,000-acre Focused Planning Area. A mapping effort that literally started with paper maps and colored pencils over thirty years ago evolved into the digital realm that we find with most things these days. While we have a collage of colors of conserved lands on the preservation map today, there was not much color on those earlier maps. With a few exceptions, like the Julian Town site and nearby residential neighborhoods, the goal has long been to color-in and conserve the entire length of the map. Today we have new tools that are helping make that happen! In the sunset of a successful architecture career, VMF Board Member Jay Evarts has turned his skills and preservation passion to bring digital (GIS) mapping efforts “in-house” for VMF, and with just a few months of work, his effort is already paying land preservation dividends! A 23-acre area of unspoiled wildlands on the east side of the Volcan Mountains at the Teofulio Summit (elev. 3, 681’) came back on the market and caught Jay’s eye in late winter. Overlooking the San Felipe Valley, the habitat and connectivity of the property makes it an important piece in the broader vision to protect and preserve the Volcan Mountains. VMF’s land preservation committee weighed-in, donors stepped-up, and as we welcomed spring, we celebrated a gratifying land preservation success! The acquisition builds on two other land preservation wins in San Felipe Valley achieved using a different land preservation tool ― conservation easements. Two private landowners preserved rich riparian and wildland habitat by donating conservation easements on their lands. In 2018, Ann Keenan’s donation protected 684 acres and established the Peckham Keenan Wildlife Sanctuary. That donation inspired Ann’s neighbors, Michael and Meili Pinto, to follow with their own conservation easement donation and permanently protect their 750 acres from development at the end of 2019. In the last two years, nearly 1,500 acres have been added for conservation in the San Felipe Valley ― with more in the works! This collective effort extends the preserved landscape linkage and wildlife corridor already protected by the State of California’s San Felipe Valley Wildlife Area ― the historic Rancho Valle de San Felipe. The protected wildlands of the Teofulio Summit, Pinto Ranch, Peckham Keenan Wildlife Sanctuary, and the San Felipe Valley Wildlife Area also preserve a rich human history in the valley. Thank you to the Volcan Community! Give yourselves a big pat on the back and take a moment to appreciate our collective achievements ― but just for a moment … there’s still much to be done! Efforts are already under way to preserve another 450 acres adjacent to the Teofulio Summit property that is another critical piece of the San Felipe Valley wildlife corridor. Jay Evarts is VMF's Vice President and chairs VMF's Land Preservation and Acquisition (LPA) Committee. Colleen Bradley is VMF's Executive Director.

photo by Bill Phelps Even in the midst of turbulence on Earth, there is still magnificent beauty in the sky above. There has been a lot of stir this July about Comet NEOWISE, the celestial object striking viewers with its radiance. The comet is 90 million miles from the sun and 160 million miles from Earth, and won’t be seen from Earth again for almost 7,000 years. How does a comet get the name “NEOWISE”, anyway? Its official name is comet C/2020 F3 NEOWISE because on March 27, 2020 NASA’s Near-Earth Object Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (NEOWISE) mission discovered it, and there’s nothing like a good acronym. But what is a comet? Nothing more or less than a Solar System body that gives off gases, a process known as outgassing, when it passes close to the sun and begins to warm. This is why we can see the coma, which is the fuzzy layer around the nucleus, and even a tail. This is caused by solar radiation and then solar wind, which is released from the corona of the sun. NEOWISE is special because it can be seen with the naked eye and is one of the brightest comets seen from our Northern Hemisphere since 1997, when Comet Hale-Bopp was visible. There have been scores of people coming up to The Julian-Cuyamaca area to see the comet under a dark sky, since it can barely be seen from the light polluted city. Members of the community and the Julian Dark Sky Network have been busy viewing and photographing the comet in the last few weeks, with some stunning results. Even during the pandemic, the JDSN has been busy adapting to the widening world of virtual connection. They have hosted three virtual star parties so far, and the fourth is scheduled for August 1 at 9:30 p.m. Simply go to YouTube and type in “Curiosity Peak Observatory”, and you will find the live viewing site where you can see the planets, participate in the live chat and get your questions answered by Doug Sollosy and Vivek Vijayakumar. Don’t miss this chance to connect with other night sky enthusiasts and learn more about our amazing night sky.

The Glorious Night Skies Of August 2020

by Bill Carter

Summer’s best meteor shower peaks the night of August 11-12. The radiant (apparent center) for this shower is the constellation Perseus, which is a string of stars in the northeast just below (toward the horizon) the W-shaped constellation Cassiopeia. The best viewing time for the meteor shower is after midnight to just before dawn. Unfortunately, the last-quarter Moon will also rise after midnight and decrease the visibility of the meteors, but this meteor shower is still a “must see” event for August. The Perseids are known as fast meteors often including a good number of fireballs.

M8, also known as the Lagoon Nebula

photo by Bill Carter However, you should not wait until after midnight to begin your night sky observations as August skies are full of exceptional deep-sky objects to observe with binoculars or small telescopes. Let us start with the constellation Sagittarius (the teapot-shaped asterism) in the far south near Scorpius’ tail. The spout of the teapot is on the west side of this constellation, and just above the spout are two “puffs” of steam, M8 and M20. M8, also known as the Lagoon Nebula, is the preeminent nebula in the summer sky. The Lagoon Nebula is so named because of the dark lane (or lagoon) running down the middle of it. This nebula surrounds an open star cluster (designated NGC 6530) containing an estimated one hundred stars. The brightest continued on page 8

News from Sweden #2 Nyheter från Sverige As conveyed by friends across the pond we made the right decision, original intentions with different circumstances aside, now very different from an unfolding world dynamic, an incomprehensible boiling global pot seemingly inescapable. Those following Carl’s Facebook site have seen photos of the beautiful area where we reside and events we’ve attended. Outside this fairytale lifestyle full of music concerts, shopping runs, wooded strolls, summer cottages (stugas), vegetable and flower gardens, and meeting in person newly DNA-discovered cousins, surges a world so incredibility dynamic meaning swirls bewildering and horrific. Since our last visit things have changed. Midsummer (Midsommar), Sweden’s most popular and exciting country-wide holiday has passed, celebrated in small groups and usually only family. At our little pad we were three, comparatively quiet and civilized, unfortunately rather un-Swedish in that regard. We sang snaps visor mostly off key. The food was really good Mrs. E.: new potatoes, gravlax, a variety of sill, smoked sik, Norrlands ljus beer, tunnbröd with butter so rich it’s sinful, and an aquavit from Holland province made from fläder (elderberry). Princess tårta topped it all off amid a summer day for the memory book. Covid-19 changed everything. It is unreal. We are, despite the hovering dread, having a great time, keeping the humor. The after-effect of the changing light and dark cycle is powerful, starting imperceptibly at first but now quite noticeable: on arrival we had 18 hours and 15 minutes of light. Today we will experience 17 hours and 23 minutes of light. These periods are separated by an ever-lengthening and dimishing twilight and by late August we will have a nighttime. Temperatures have ranged from 10-28 C here and in the more northern regions reached 35 C a temperature at which Swedes become uncomfortable. Water is warm at 20C (they say). We reminisced of Hawaii. After arriving we were dealing with jet lag and the day-night differences made it rather tough to sleep and shift body time by 9-hours backward or forward, whichever way ‘they’ finally decided to go. I love the long days and do not want to sleep, making it all the tougher. In summer Swedes use blackout curtains reminiscent of WW II. For a while we didn’t know what day it was and occasionally have to check the phone to be sure. The smart phone is essential here. Absolutely ones’ entire social and economic life is controlled by using the smart phone or smart watch, iPad. or computer loaded with app for every organization or occasion. It is a cashless society, and if you have some, people won’t take it. This is very hard for us to appreciate. The most common conversational topic, other than the pandemic and an occasion brief mention of the status of the USA, is the weather, speaking of which has been all over the place. We love it, especially the occasional summer rains called ‘enstaka skurar’ here. Carl’s early days-of-summers in Cleveland were brought to mind. The rains are not a deterrent to Swedes. An umbrella and some type of cover is part of daily clothing. This is a country were the weather ‘is as it is’. Så där (so there). This habit we are still trying to learn, experiencing Letters continued on page 11

4 Ways Science Exploration Can Shape Students’ Futures (StatePoint) The impact of scientific exploration has vastly shaped the world we live in, and in this challenging time, it has never been more relevant than it is today. As families navigate the new reality of working and learning from home, there’s an opportunity to think creatively about how children learn and explore science. Parents and educators can turn to projectbased activities to combine learning with fun, help kids stay curious and occupied while also providing an avenue to put their passion for problem solving to good use. In short, science exploration can positively fuel, nourish and encourage the great minds of tomorrow. According to the 2019 3M State of Science Index, 59 percent of the world’s population believe scientific advancements will benefit future generations. Beyond paving the way toward vibrant career opportunities, a STEM education can shape a young person’s mind and transform their future in these fundamental ways: 1. Active learning instills confidence. Whether it’s positing a new hypothesis or learning a new programming language, the process

of active learning required by STEM pushes students out of their comfort zone and creates an environment where taking calculated risks is encouraged. Becoming comfortable with taking risks to solve problems and learning from these outcomes builds confidence. These skillsets can be applied to any future challenges a student may need to navigate. 2. Problem solving encourages creativity. Who says STEM can’t be creative? Problem solving forces outside-the-box thinking and hones creativity. Without creativity, innovation is impossible, making this an invaluable quality that can translate into all areas of life and work, particularly in fields using cutting-edge STEM principles. 3. STEM helps students develop key life skills. From communication to decision-making to teamwork, STEM learning helps students develop practical skills inside and outside the lab. Fortunately, this learning can happen independently. Anyone can turn their home into a laboratory by visiting, youngscientistlab.com, a free resource offering science project ideas and step-by-step directions for grades K-8. Whether students collaborate or work independently, they’ll feel accomplished after finishing projects. 4. Young scientists can make an impact on tomorrow’s world. Educational science programs encourage students to think about tomorrow’s challenges today. Some programs even offer exciting opportunities for students to put their ideas and theories directly into practice. For example, the 3M Young Scientist Challenge, hosted in partnership with Discovery Education, offers students the chance to 20SDG16503_Whendell TIPS Summer__Jullian News__RUN: 07/29/2020__BW__Trim: 11” 10 continued13” on xpage

Whendell’s favorite summer energy tips. Power down computers and other electronics when not in use.

Avoid using extension cords to power air conditioners.

Start your dishwasher or laundry outside 4 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Overloading power strips can create a fire hazard.

Keep dryer vents clean; it will work better and reduce fire risks.

A full fridge operates more efficiently; keep it filled with water bottles for an emergency.

Camp Stevens, an Episcopal camp and retreat center just outside of downtown Julian, has shifted gears this year—instead of summer camp for 100 kids every week, the facility now offers day use for hiking, swimming, meditating in the outdoor chapel, as well as small overnight retreats for individuals and families. Nestled on 256 acres of wild land, the camp prides itself on ecological sustainability and a respect for nature. Healthy, delicious meals served by masked and gloved staff on an outdoor patio provide sustenance in the midst of recreation.

“We have always been a place where people can relax, retreat and find a space to heal,” said Executive Director Kathy Wilder. “That hasn’t changed because of COVID. We hope people still come here and know that we’re taking extra care and concern with safety and precautions. We listen to people’s needs and help them have a restorative time when they’re here.” Currently the camp offers weekend day use. On Saturdays and Sundays people can come and hike on the property and use the pool. The camp asks people to bring their own food, drink and sports equipment. $25 per car. “We hope people who used to use the Pine Crest pool (which is now closed) will think of Camp Stevens,” said Wilder. “We hope to engage with our local community more.” Another option is the overnight weekend retreats for individuals and families. Guests arrive on Friday evening and stay through Sunday morning. Meals served include Saturday breakfast through Sunday breakfast. The camp has reconfigured the lodges to accommodate each person or family to have their own restrooms and sleeping space. The camp welcomes anyone who needs a break! While masks and physical distancing remain the norm, anyone can hike solo or with their families or groups. Camp Stevens also serves as a pickup location for the Sage Mountain Farms community supported agriculture (CSA) box. The camp staff ensure the pickup experience is smooth and safe. They also contribute their own home made bread and granola for a small donation. To learn more about day use, overnight retreats, swimming, or CSA boxes, please contact Sam: retreats@campstevens.org, 760765-0028.

(StatePoint) As businesses and services reopen nationwide, the death toll from COVID-19 continues to rise, and experts warn that Americans must continue taking precautions to help stop the spread of the virus. “In states across the country, the spread of COVID-19 is staggering and concerning. We all have a role to play in stopping the spread and protecting ourselves, our family and our neighbors,” says Susan R. Bailey, M.D., president of the American Medical Association (AMA). “The science is clear. We know what stops the spread of the virus – wearing cloth face masks, physical distancing and regularly washing hands -- and it is on all of us to practice these steps. Without a vaccine for this novel virus, the only way to turn the tide and recapture a sense of normal is by working together.” The AMA offers the following guidance and insights that can help keep you, your friends and your loved ones healthy and safe. • Wear a cloth face mask: Take the simple steps that science has shown will help stop the spread of the virus: wearing a cloth face mask, maintaining physical distancing and washing your hands. The simplest tried-and-true methods are still the most important. • Keep up with doctor visits: Before you decide to forgo routine care or screenings, talk to your doctor.

* On Aug. 2, 1876, "Wild Bill" Hickok, one of the greatest gunfighters of the American West, is murdered in Deadwood, South Dakota. Hickok was playing cards with his back to the saloon door when a young gunslinger named Jack McCall shot him in the back of the head. • On July 31, 1916, future racing legend Louise Smith, the first woman inducted into the International Motorsports Hall of Fame, is born in Barnesville, Georgia. In her first race, unaware that a checkered flag meant the finish line, Smith kept going until someone threw out a red flag. • On July 28, 1945, an American B-25 Mitchell bomber crashes into the Empire State Building, killing 14 people. The freak accident was caused by heavy fog. When the plane swerved to avoid the Chrysler Building, it flew straight into the north side of the Empire State Building, near the 79th floor. • On July 29, 1958, the U.S.

Congress passes legislation establishing NASA, a civilian agency responsible for coordinating America's activities in space. • On Aug. 1, 1961, Six Flags Over Texas opens. The park was the first to feature log flume, 360-degree looping roller coaster and modern parachute drop. The park also pioneered the concept of an all-inclusive admission price. • On July 27, 1974, the House Judiciary Committee recommends that President Richard Nixon be impeached and removed from office. The impeachment proceedings resulted from a break-in at the Democratic Party's national headquarters in the Watergate apartment-hotel complex in Washington, D.C. • On July 30, 1999, "The Blair Witch Project," a lowbudget, independent horror film that will become a cult hit, is released in theaters.

My Thoughts by Michele Harvey

Nursery Rhymes Explained

by Kiki Skagen Munshi

What’s That Smell

Two-Fer has gopher breath. Yuck-O. Let us hasten to say that we don’t normally go around smelling cats’ breaths, or people’s breaths either, the odd alcoholic husband aside, but Toofie was standing up on a ledge right at shoulder height and somehow it seemed appropriate to lean over and touch noses. What a mistake. What does one do about bad breath in a cat? It hardly seems worth taking the animal to Ramona to see a vet for it. We would mainly end up paying to endure 44 miles of uninterrupted yowling and perhaps be told she needs a different kind of cat food. Further, said cat is otherwise healthy and active and catches gophers and small rodents with abandon, which is probably why she has gopher breath. The thought of tooth brushing flitted across the imagination and left decisively. Give her some mint or lemon verbena to eat, perhaps, assuming she would eat mint or lemon verbena. The obvious answer is not to put the human nose anywhere near the cat nose, a solution which would make Toof quite happy. She DID sniff the human in this most recent encounter but we would rather forget the look on her face, which makes us wonder about our toothpaste. Certainly WE don’t have gopher breath, not having dined on gophers recently or, in fact, ever. Maybe she doesn’t like coffee which is probably the most recent breath additive here. In any case, it seemed a good time to go into the basement and grab a couple of bottles of wine from the fast-diminishing wine cellar. COVID-19 is hard on wine. It probably couldn’t resist gopher breath, however, so perhaps we do, after all, have a use for that smell. *** Baseball hasn't forgotten me. I go to a lot of old-timers games and I haven't lost a thing. I sit in the bullpen and let people throw things at me. Just like old times. — Bob Uecker *** Baseball is almost the only orderly thing in a very unorderly world. If you get three strikes, even the best lawyer in the world can’t get you off. — Bill Veeck ***

When I was a child we watched “The Mickey Mouse Club” on television. It had lots of segments to keep us entertained and one segment involved Jiminy Cricket teaching us the meaning of Nursery rhymes that we already knew. We just thought that they were rhymes that we learned and could sing or recite and repeat whenever we wanted to. We had no idea any of them had deeper meanings until Jiminy Cricket taught us. Generally many of the rhymes originally had British political meanings. One rhyme was Three Blind Mice. “Three blind mice. Three blind mice. See how they run. See how they run. They all ran after the farmer’s wife. She cut off their heads with a carving knife. Did you ever see such a sight in your life as three blind mice!” In this rhyme, the three blind mice were three Protestant loyalists who were accused of plotting against Queen Mary I. The farmer's wife refers to the queen who with her husband, King Philip of Spain, owned large estates. The three loyalists (men) were burned at the stake. Another favoring Nursery rhyme to sing was “Ring around a Rosy. Pocket full of posies. Ashes, ashes, we all fall down.” And then we all fell down laughing. Actually Ring Around A Rosy referred to the Great Plague of 1665. The plague caused a high fever and a rash that looked like a ring hence the name, Ring Around A Rosy. People put herbs and spices in the pockets of an ailing person in an attempt to freshen up the stale air around them. This was a common practice, thus the “pocket full of posies”. “Ashes, Ashes” is an American variation of the English version which is “A-tishoo, A-tishoo” or someone sneezing. Plague sufferers had a fit of sneezing before they died or when “we all fall down”. Jiminy Cricket illustrated all of the nursery rhymes with cartoons. My favorite went with “London Bridge is falling down, falling down, falling down. London Bridge is falling down, my fair lady.” London Bridge has a rich history going back to 2000 years. London Bridge kept partially falling down for centuries after the Romans left Britain in the fifth century. It crumbled in 1281 (due to ice damage), 1309, 1425 and 1437, and then there was a devastating fire in the seventeenth century. It was constructed for horse traffic but not for all of the weight it carried when shops and upstairs living spaces and storage spaces were built on it. The weight that was continually placed on the bridge was far more than it could handle and it began to fall, bit by bit throughout the centuries and was sinking when it was sold to an oil tycoon in 1967. It was finally moved to Arizona in 1968. Mary, Mary, Quite contrary. How does your garden grow? With silver bells and Cockle shells all in a row. “Mary” is referring to Mary I, daughter of Henry VIII. The Catholic queen received quite a bad reputation during her short reign for executing Protestant loyalists. The garden in the rhyme is referring to the growth of a graveyard. Silver bells and cockleshells are believed to be euphemisms for instruments of torture. The “maids” is slang for a beheading instrument called “The Maiden” that came into common use before the guillotine. I don’t remember the verse with the maids. Perhaps this is best. Old Mother Hubbard went to her cupboard to give the poor dog a bone. When she came there, the cupboard was bare, And so the poor dog had none. The Old Mother Hubbard rhyme supposedly refers to Cardinal Thomas Wolsey and his unsuccessful attempt to get an annulment for King Henry VIII. Old Mother Hubbard is Cardinal Wolsey. The cupboard is the Catholic Church. The doggie is Henry VIII. The bone is the annulment Henry wanted in order to end his marriage to Katherine of Aragon. Katherine did not give Henry a son and his attentions fell to Anne Boleyn. She refused to be intimate with him without being married first. He and Katherine were Catholic so divorce was out of the question. Instead King Henry VIII changed and declared himself the head of the Church of England. He divorced Katherine and married Anne. Little Jack Horner is another simple rhyme to remember. “Little Jack Horner sat in a corner eating his Christmas pie. He stuck in a thumb and pulled out a plum and said, "What a good boy am I."' The story behind this rhyme is that “Jack” is actually Thomas Horner, a steward to the abbot of Glastonbury. The abbot sent Horner to London with a Christmas pie for King Henry VIII. The deeds to twelve manor houses were hidden in the pie. The abbot did this in an attempt to ingratiate himself with the king during the Dissolution of the Monasteries. (When King Henry VIII made the Church of England the official religion, he tore down the Catholic monasteries and took all of their riches.) On his trip to London, Horner put his finger in the pie and pulled out the deed to Mells Manor. Shortly thereafter, Horner moved into the manor. His descendants have lived in the manor house for generations. Horner’s descendants dispute this story and claim that Horner fairly purchased the property from the king. “Many of the nursery rhymes that we have read to our children have their origins in British history. Rhymes were written for many different reasons. Some rhymes were written to honor a particular local event that has since been forgotten, while others were written to express feelings of love. Rhymes were also used to hide real meanings, such as when someone wanted to express displeasure toward the government or the sovereign without being executed! Another reason for rhymes is that they’re easy to remember, and therefore could be spread by word-ofmouth—an essential feature for a large population of people who could not read or write. Here are some common nursery rhymes that have interesting interpretations regarding figures and events in British history.” ByNatalie Kidd My senior English Teacher Mrs. Lea taught us to look into the history and the background of stories that are written to find their real and true meaning. I have enjoyed doing it ever since. These are my thoughts.

From The Supervisor’s Desk

Notes from Supervisor Dianne Jacob Wildfire warning: In light of COVID-19, the county, Cal Fire, the Red Cross and others are revamping evacuation plans and other emergency protocols to bolster public safety during a major firestorm. Residents under evacuation orders this year could be housed in a hotel or motel, or at multiple shelters with fewer than 50 people instead of a larger traditional shelter. The Red Cross is working with nearly 100 lodging businesses across the county to make rooms available in a crisis, and they have identified over 200 shelter locations to provide these safer options. We’re entering the riskiest part of the wildfire season while still being in the middle of an unprecedented health crisis. That is forcing us to rethink and retool our disaster-planning efforts. Small business alert: Applications are still being accepted for the county's COVID-19 stimulus grant program. The Board of Supervisors recently voted to establish the $17 million fund, setting aside $3.4 million for private for-profit and non-profit businesses in East County. Many of our retail shops, restaurants and other businesses are in dire financial straits and need a financial lifeline. The grants will offer relief as we continue battle the virus and work to get our economy on track. To apply, start here: www.sandiegocounty.gov/stimulusgrant/. The application deadline is August 15. Helping seniors: At my urging, the county is moving to expand meal deliveries from local restaurants to seniors and other vulnerable populations. The Board of Supervisors has agreed to tap into federal CARES Act money to ramp up the deliveries. In recent months, the county has been offering the meals through a program called Great Plates. These deliveries are not only critical for seniors but are another way we can support restaurants that may be struggling for survival. In the Zone: Just a reminder that the county’s Cool Zone program is up and running again, but on a limited basis due to COVID-19. For the latest locations and hours, visit www.CoolZones.org. Have questions, suggestions or feedback about your county government? Call me at 619-531-5522 or email dianne.jacob@ sdcounty.ca.gov. Stay safe and healthy! Dianne

Pastor Cindy Arntson

Leo Buscaglia tells of being aboard an airplane many years ago for a five-hour flight from Los Angeles to New Jersey. When he took his seat, the man next to him seemed irritated. He explained to Buscaglia that he had hoped no one would sit there so he could have room to spread out. Within moments, they heard a baby cry. "Great!" the man exclaimed under his breath. "I hate babies on airplanes. We'll have to listen to that child scream for five hours!" He quickly proceeded to complain about the flight attendants and the food served on airplanes. After the airplane took off, the man turned to Buscaglia and asked, "What do you do?" He answered, "I am a professor. I teach Educational Psychology." "What is that exactly?" the man asked. Buscaglia explained, "Mostly I teach courses on relationships, how to treat one another, how to get along. Basically, I teach about love." The irritable traveler then responded in absolute sincerity, "I'm glad to meet someone who shares my values!" which goes to show that just because you value love doesn’t mean you’re good at it. In our modern, American culture, we discount the power of love. We use the word to describe an elevated form of liking (i.g. “I loved that movie.”) We limit its application to romantic or familial relationships. We think that love should come easily and depends on the characteristics of the person we love, on whether that person is worthy or not. In scripture, Christians learn that love originates in God. God’s love comes to us because of who God is, not because of who we are. God’s love is unconditional and steadfast. Jesus himself said that the two greatest commandments are to love God and to love our neighbors as ourselves. Human love at its best, comes through us from God and reveals God. The members of the newly formed Corinthian church were having trouble being a strong community of widely diverse people. They were boastful and envious, arrogant and rude. They were impatient and unkind with each other. And it was destroying their community. That sounds like our community and nation today. We are in a time when we not only have bad feelings about our neighbors and fellow citizens, we also are less willing to work together, to help each other and to welcome those who are different. The Apostle Paul was concerned that their divisiveness would destroy them. He wrote to them and explained that the way to be community is to allow love to shape their life together. He said that love is essential to overcome their divisions. Usually we think of love as something static, a noun, an object. But, love is also a verb. It is active. Love that is true and powerful works at finding ways to express itself for the sake of others. The love that can help our community is not an idea or feeling. It is not abstract or theoretical. This love does things. In this time when our nation is deeply divided in many ways, when differences of opinion become reasons for hatred and violence, we must follow Paul’s instructions. We cannot and must not be boastful or envious, arrogant or rude, irritable or resentful. We must express love that is patient and kind, that rejoices in the truth. We can’t use love effectively if we think love is automatic, or if we think love is based on how we feel or on the other person’s worthiness. To love effectively requires a decision to love. To love effectively requires effort and a commitment to loving. We must embody love. We can effectively use love in powerful, transforming, healing ways against the destructive hostility and hatred of our community and nation.

contribute to aging. The sun brings out free radicals in the skin and antioxidants protect skin cells by counteracting free-radical activity -so take a peach to the beach!

Fresh, high-quality peaches are sweet tasting and low in calories, as well as saturated fat, cholesterol and sodium, and high in vitamins A and C, dietary fiber, niacin and potassium. Since one medium peach is only about 37 calories, they’re also an excellent snack or guilt-free dessert. There are more than 200 varieties of peaches, which are sometimes referred to as “stone” fruit due to their pits. Cling or clingstone peaches have a pit to which the flesh “clings.” Freestone peaches have a pit from which the juicy, soft flesh is easily pulled away. There is no taste difference between freestone and clingstone peaches. Some popular types of white peaches are the Sugar May, Scarlet Pearl, Southern Pearl and White Lady. The key differences between white and yellow peaches are their appearance and taste. The white peach has a pearl, pink-blushed skin, white flesh and pink seed. White peaches are less acidic, resulting in a delicately sweet, juicy flavor containing essences of honey and vanilla, and finishing with a clean continued on page 11

and celebrities were remembered with figurines, prints and plates, and mugs of glass or ceramics. Coronations, royal weddings, major exhibitions and historic events were commemorated by souvenirs with depictions of the people or the event. The Royal Doulton Co. made many figurines of attractive imaginary people and animals. The company started making several sizes of small character jugs honoring fictional as well as real people in 1930, and it still makes a few new ones each year. Most sell today for under $100. Thirty limited edition loving cups and jugs (pitchers) about 10 inches high were made from 1930 to 1938, and two that honor Queen Elizabeth, one at her coronation in 1953, the other at her Silver Jubilee in 1977. The pieces designed by Charles Noke, molded with raised figures and decorated in bright colors, are rare. Each has a special mark on the bottom explaining the history

of the hero and events pictured. The standard Royal Doulton Co. mark, a lion and crown, also is used. These limited editions were selling for more than $1,000 each until about 10 years ago, when all Doulton prices fell. A commemorative Admiral Lord Nelson loving cup auctioned at Skinner Auctions in Boston in 2015 for $800. Lord Nelson was a naval hero who fought in many naval battles and seemed unstoppable. He lost an arm in one battle, an eye in another, and he was finally killed at the Battle of Trafalgar Bay in 1805. On one side of the loving cup is a picture of the one-armed admiral in his ship; a sinking ship and lifeboat with sailors is on the other side. *** Q: I have a silver spoon marked with a small hallmark: the letter "S" in the middle of wings. I'd like to know the maker and when it was made. A: This mark was used by George W. Shiebler, who started

his company in Baltimore in 1876. He moved to Brooklyn and the company name became George W. Shiebler & Co. in 1891. It went out of business in 1910. The company made flatware, hollowware, souvenir spoons and specialty items. A sterling teaspoon is worth about $25 to $50.

continued from page 1 three stars are ionizing and illuminating the entire nebula. Just north of M8 lies M20, the Trifid Nebula, so named because of its three lobes. It is a combined emission (red) and reflection (blue) nebula in larger telescopes and astro-photographs, but it is a relatively dim puff of nebulosity in binoculars. Now let us move on to M24, the Small Sagittarius Star Cloud. You can locate M24 by mentally extending a line from the lowest star (closest to the horizon) to the highest star on the west side of the Teapot and extend that line 1 ½ times to the north. Look for a kite-shaped pattern of stars with a soft glow surrounding them. You are actually looking almost 10,000 light years away through a hole in the dust of the Orion spiral arm of the Milky Way Galaxy that contains our solar system to the Carina-Sagittarius Arm – the next spiral arm inward toward the center of our galaxy. Now swing your binoculars or telescope to the northeast until you find the constellation Aquila (the Eagle), a diamond-shaped constellation containing the very bright star Altair. The tail of the Eagle points toward the southwest and contains three stars at its end that point to M11, the Wild Duck Cluster. M11’s stars appear to form a “V” and this is the source of its name. The Wild Duck Cluster is the brightest open cluster visible from Earth. At this point you may want to sit back and enjoy the Perseid meteor shower. Before you pack it in and go inside, however, remember that the Pleiades and the Hyades open star clusters in the constellation Taurus will be rising in the east sometime after 1:00 am. You may want to take a few minutes to gaze on the two most impressive star clusters in the northern hemisphere before you call it a night. Jupiter and Saturn both appear in the southeast about an hour after sunset early in August and slowly move westward (and closer) to eastern Sagittarius throughout the month. Jupiter’s four brightest moons will be readily visible in binoculars and Saturn’s rings will be beautifully tilted at 22 degrees. Mars rises three hours after sunset in the beginning of August and two hours after sunset by the end of the month. However, Mars is best seen near the meridian (high in the south) about an hour before sunrise on August 1st and 2 ½ hours before sunrise at the end of the month. Venus rises at approximately 2:45 am local time, moves eastward throughout the month and passes through the constellations Taurus, Orion and southern Gemini (where it ends the month). Finally, the asteroid Ceres is the largest object in the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter and is large enough to be classified as a dwarf planet (it is about ¼ the size of the Moon), although Ceres is reportedly 25% ice. Ceres will be passing through the constellation Aquarius in August and it will be bright enough (magnitude 7.7 to 8) to be a binocular object. If you want a detailed sky chart for Ceres, go to https://theskylive. com/ceres-info and click on “Live Position and Data Tracker”.

California Commentary

Prop. 13 Is Working, Reject Prop. 15

by Jon Coupal and Ernest J Dronenburg Jr. Come November, Proposition 13 faces its biggest political battle at the ballot box. It is instructive to ask whether that iconic tax affordability measure remains good tax policy for California. As the just-released property tax assessments rolls from several California counties reveal, Proposition 13 is working exceedingly well at keeping homeowners and small business owners from losing their properties to skyrocketing property taxes, while delivering government a reliable source of revenue. Voters would be foolish to repeal one of its major protections this November. Take San Diego County, for example. The assessed value of all taxable property increased to a record high $604.75 billion, more than a five percent increase over last year. Because the stateset “lien date” is January 1st, any potential impact from COVID-19 won’t show up in this year’s numbers. Nonetheless, there is little to suggest that the county will see any major downturn in the real estate market, notwithstanding the pandemic. San Diego’s experience with Proposition 13, as with most California counties, should lay to rest the notion that Proposition 13 has starved local government of revenue. Since 1978, increases in property tax revenue for local governments have far exceeded population and inflation. And while California now has the highest income tax rate, gas tax and sales tax rate in America, we remain in the top third (17th out of 50) in per capita property tax revenue. In short, we are not a low property tax state. Hardly an outlier, San Diego County’s benefits from Prop. 13 are evident in the other counties that just reported their assessment rolls. These eleven counties all enjoyed big increases in taxable value that produced more revenue for schools and governments, including Fresno (up 5.5 percent), Marin (4.5 percent) and Orange (4.72 percent).

So how is it possible that, over the course of 41 years of history, Prop. 13 continues to work so well? Prop. 13 is an implicit contract with government that says property owners agree to pay a maximum property tax rate of 1 percent for as long as they own the property and agree to an annual increase of that taxable value up to 2 percent. When the property changes owners, it is reassessed at the market value and the new owner gets the benefit of a transparent and predictable tax they can afford. Prior to Prop. 13, every year was a guessing game as to whether you could afford your property taxes. But now, far-left progressives and tax-hungry public sector labor interests want to strip away that protection from business and industrial properties in order to seize what they believe to be between $6 billion to $12 billion annually in taxes. Even their estimate of revenue has huge volatility. Their Proposition 15 proposal on the November ballot would require continuous reassessment of business properties by removing the two percent cap an annual increases. There are many reasons to reject Prop. 15. But as the 58 counties release their assessment rolls, it’s more evident than ever that Prop. 13 has delivered affordability for property owners and a stable and growing revenue source for schools and local governments. We shouldn’t abandon a system that’s working. We should reject Proposition 15 in November. It’s obvious that it will have a negative impact on revenue stability for our schools and on stability for taxpayers. We will see businesses closing not because of the pandemic, but because they cannot afford to pay their property taxes. *** Jon Coupal is the president of the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association and Ernest J. Dronenburg, Jr. is the elected San Diego County assessor/recorder/ county clerk.

Then, ® Dear EarthTalk: I overheard someone saying the Coronavirus could drive mountain gorillas extinct? Is this because they are susceptible to the virus? -- Spencer S., Tukwila, WA

Howdy From Lake Cuyamaca

Coronavirus could be the knock-out punch for African mountain gorillas already on the brink of extinction. Credit: Francesco Ungaro, Pexels. While we don’t know for sure whether mountain gorillas or other great apes are susceptible to coronavirus, no one wants to find out. Damian Carrington reports in The Guardian that the coronavirus could potentially wipe out already threatened populations of chimpanzees, gorillas and orangutans — our closest living relatives with whom we share 98 percent of our DNA. “Even pathogens producing mild symptoms in humans have been lethal to great apes in the past,” reports Carrington. “The fact that Covid-19 is fatal for some humans leads experts to fear it could potentially prove devastating to great apes.” To date, no great apes are known to have contracted the coronavirus. Those humans who study and protect them would like to keep it that way. As a result, wildlife tourism across Africa is temporarily shut down. How long “temporary” may be is anybody’s guess at this point, but conservationists fear it could set back their efforts by decades if not put them “out of business”entirely. “The suspension of ecotourism during the coronavirus pandemic has also meant the main source of revenue for gorilla conservation has been lost and there are fears some of those in surrounding communities who depend on tourists could turn to poaching out of desperation,” reports Jack Losh in The Guardian. Meanwhile, the story is much the same all across Africa, where governments have suspended all tourism. Ann Gibbons reports for Science that researchers at wildlife reserves across Africa face new challenges in the age of coronavirus. The 130 wildlife rangers at Uganda’s Bwindi Impenetrable National Park are now briefed regularly on how to keep coronavirus away from gorillas and how to monitor wildlife for signs of the sickness. At another Ugandan reserve, Taï and Kibale, researchers must quarantine for 14 days before they are allowed anywhere near the wild gorilla population under study there, And once researchers can get closer, they still must, in the words of Gibbons, “change their clothes and take their temperatures before they go into the forest, wear masks, and keep their distance.” Researchers there have also test chimps’ feces for COVID-19 and other viruses. “Habitat loss and poaching are big threats to the survival of great apes, but viruses are also a concern,” adds Briggs. “Infectious disease is now listed among the top three threats to some great ape groups.” Indeed, past research has shown that chimps can contract the common cold virus, while Ebola is thought to be responsible for thousands of wild chip and gorilla deaths across Africa. Could coronavirus be the death knell for these and other iconic wildlife species?

“Dusty Britches” here along with “Peppermint Patty”, “Bobby’s Big Boy”, “Snot Locker”, and “Booger”. There is a duckling and gosling explosion going on at the Lake with waddelers to the left and paddelers to the right a yakin and a quackin away. We are so fortunate to have quite the variety of birds this time of year. Trout fishing has dropped off with the water temperature hovering around 74 to 76 degrees, they are deep and don’t want to eat. If you have been following the story about the CADFW fish hatcheries that service southern California, the story is true. They had to euthanize all of their trout in those hatcheries due to a bacteria meaning we won’t be seeing any DFW plants for at least 2 years which cuts our trout planting population in half, so keep a close eye on our web-site for any future trout plants from private hatcheries. The pan fish such as crappie, blue gill, or red eared sunfish are still hitting. So are our catfish, and we will be getting some more catfish to plant soon. No sturgeon, that we have heard of lately. The bull frogs are out starting at dusk singing their symphony, the eagles are making a daily appearance and the raccoons are a three ring Barnum and Bailey circus… if you are fortunate enough to catch them in their act. You can usually find them around the dumpsters, trash cans, or fish cleaning tables after dark. Speaking of tables, we now have tables out along the perimeter trail around the lake shore for our visitors. Jene Callaway, a long-time resident, has been grooming the trails and, man, what a difference a little care makes. If you do plan to venture out please remember to bring hydration and something to snack on. If you are familiar with the Lake, you will recognize Pump House Cove and if you have been here lately, you noticed the temporary fence that has been there. We are working on some of the plumbing, so please be patient as it is sometimes in the way as you try to access the island… it will hopefully be gone soon. We have found that there aren’t many Popeyes and Olive Oils out there when it comes to row boats. Sometimes the folks who rent a row boat look like they only have one oar in the

when they find that it is easier to row out than row back… they find themselves either at the log boom at the south end or on the rocks at the dike. In any event we lose a ranger to go and rescue them time after time after time, so we are changing the majority of our row boats over to motor boats. Our weekends are booked as far as camping and housing is concerned and all boats are rented by 7:00 a.m. with the bait and tackle shop opening at 6:00 a.m. We are only renting our boats once a day to comply with COVID-19 precautions and we only rent our housing twice a week. Before, we would rerent boats during the day as they came in and re-rented housing as soon as we could after cleaning… but it all seems to be working. “Yosemite Sam” is now our ‘honey truck’ driver, and doing a great job… other than when he stops to fish for some brown trout along the way. Lot’s of star gazers have been out lately lining the highway and setting up their telescopes looking at who knows what… my question is where. I’m just one of those who has a hard time believing we’re the only ones out there… if you know what I mean. The water in the lake will start to slowly diminish as the upper basin has been milked for all it’s got and, sorry to say, our wells cannot keep up with the rate of evaporation during this hot and windy time of year. Water quality is just so so with some green algae… but we have more water

It’s time for me to go now… as I once had a friend years ago named Kelly Wolf who would frequent oriental massage parlors when he was young… and one special and specific parlor on El Cajon Blvd. After too much time spent there the lady of the house would say to Kelly… You go now Mr. Wolf.

be named America’s Top Young Scientist. The national science competition for students in grades 5-8 gives young inventors a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to work closely with a 3M scientist, compete for a $25,000 prize, and learn new skills. Last year’s winner, aspiring

microbiologist, Kara Fan, 14, invented a first aid liquid bandage using nano-silver technology to reduce the risk of superbug infections caused by antibiotic overuse. Fan is a great example of what can happen when science skills are applied to making a positive difference in the world. “I entered the challenge because I wanted to show my invention of the nanosilver liquid bandage to more people. I think it is important for more people to be aware of the antibiotic-resistance bacteria crisis and do something about it,” says Fan, who worked with her 3M mentor for several months to refine her invention. Now open, this year’s challenge asks students to identify a problem in one of six categories—health, safety, mobility, environment, energy consumption, or community— and come up with a unique innovation to improve lives for the future.

continued from page 2 more than once weather changes within minutes: caught in a horrific rainstorm while leaving a store recently I mentioned to the young women standing next to me in typical California bravado, ‘in California we call this liquid sunshine’. She quickly replied, ‘In Sweden we call this Summer’. The sky, always exciting, is almost never just clear and blue as Californians are accustomed too. The USA is seldom covered in the newspapers and not much, if at all, on TV. The EU and the Pandemic is the big topic. Immigration and refugee policy are very hot political topics here. The Covid-19 numbers in Sweden have fallen dramatically from a high infectious rate around Midsummer to almost none at all now. As mentioned in a previous article the ‘herd’ theory is still

being discussed and evaluated. It was based on no knowledge of this novel virus and the known viral theory. A big difference here is the politicians’ stay out of it and only enter the game when policies or recommendations are to be announced. The decisions are made by the Country’s Chief Scientist for Epidemiology in conjunction with other scientists and medical specialists. Sweden had a pandemic plan drawn up in 2006 but never updated it. In Europe the five countries reporting most cases and deaths are Russia (783 328), United Kingdom (295 817), Spain (266 194), Italy (244 752) and Germany (202 799). It pays to do your homework. While most of our legal integration into the social system has been moderately smooth and straight forward, other acts of normal, civilized living have not.

Carl is now a legal resident, has the Swedish equivalent of a green card (uppehållstillstånd), has a personal number (card in the mail) and is in the ‘system’. Getting vehicle insurance and setting up the internet and TV has ranged from tense to nightmarish. The Swedish system and various supporting subsystems are extremely complex based on a theory derived from Heller’s book ‘Catch 22”. The security overreach for banking, TV access, or anything else has taken the most time and energy. It is unnecessarily complicated, and Swedes openly complain, a characteristic stereotype.

sweetness. White peaches are best eaten out of hand, as like most peaches they don’t improve with cooking. The best way to choose a peach, whether white or yellow, is by the feel and smell, not the color. Look for peaches that are somewhat firm yet yield lightly to pressure when applied. When you can smell the sweetness of a peach, then you know that fruit is ready to eat. Peaches are sensitive and should be handled with care and stored in a single layer, as they bruise easily. If unripe, store them in a paper bag. If ripe, they may be stored in the refrigerator for a week, depending on the degree of ripeness. For full succulence, bring them to room temperature and then enjoy both the flavor and aroma. Avoid picking peaches that are extremely small, hard, soft or have wrinkled skin at the stem end. Peaches that have a green background are picked in an unripe stage and will not ripen well. If you’re fortunate enough to have more peaches than you can eat, you can freeze them. Peel and slice the fruit and mix with one tablespoon each of lemon juice and sugar. Place them into a sealable storage bags and freeze for future use. Peaches are available throughout the year. California supplies them from May to October, peaking in July. Washington peaches are available from July to September, while Chile supplies them the rest of the year. Here are some fun facts about peaches: * These “Persian apples” actually had their beginning in China, but were developed in Persia and went from there to Europe and then to America with the colonists. * The nectarine and the peach are so similar that there is only one gene that separates the two to make them distinct.

CIF Announces Plans For High School Sports The California Interscholastic Federation, San Diego Section (CIF-SDS) is excited to see the foundations of a plan to return high school athletics throughout the state of California for the 2020-2021 school year. Today’s announcement from the state office provides our section with the information necessary to finalize the calendars and schedules for all of our CIF regulated sports, while also acknowledging the importance of the health and safety of our student athletes and coaches by pushing the official start date back to align with the Roadmap to Recovery set by the state of California. Specifics of the plan provides for two seasons of sport, which will serve to maximize the length of each season while not eliminating any athletic opportunities in a reduced athletic calendar for the year. The adjusted calendar distributes the athletic offerings into a Fall/ Winter Season, and a Spring Season in hope of balancing the opportunities for all student athletes. In collaboration with our Board of Managers, Conference Presidents, Sport Specific Advisory Committees and Officials Association, we will be coming together over the next couple weeks to finalize the dates and schedules for each of the seasons of sport for our section. We understand that this has been a difficult period of time for our student athletes, coaches, athletic administrators, and parents with so much uncertainty and information changing on a daily basis. With a plan in place, we look forward to continuing to collaborate with leaders from across our section and state as we prepare for the start of the 2020-2021 athletic year. Start Date for High School sport will be December 14, 2020. A calendar will be released on August 14.
