Concerns Over Evictions
Governor Gavin Newsom On August 31 announced that he has signed legislation to protect millions of tenants from eviction and property owners from foreclosure due to the economic impacts of COVID-19. These protections apply to tenants who declare an inability to pay all or part of the rent due to a COVIDrelated reason. “COVID-19 has impacted everyone in California – but some bear much more of the burden than others, especially tenants struggling to stitch together the monthly rent, and they deserve protection from eviction,” said Governor Newsom. “This new law protects tenants from eviction for non-payment of rent and helps keep homeowners out of foreclosure as a result of economic hardship caused by this terrible pandemic. California is stepping up to protect those most at-risk because of COVIDrelated nonpayment, but it’s just a bridge to a more permanent solution once the federal government finally recognizes
California Reaches 21 Million Registered Voters Friday September 4, California officially surpassed 21 million active registered voters for the first time in history. This milestone comes 60 days before the November 3, 2020 General Election. The Secretary of State’s next official Report of Registration will be issued later this month with breakdowns of registration by party, political jurisdiction, and age. “2020 is another record setting year for voter registration in California,” Secretary of State Alex Padilla said. “Even during the COVID-19 pandemic, our democracy remains strong and resilient.” “If you’ve recently turned 18, recently become a US Citizen, or even if you’ve never voted before — don’t wait. Register to vote today at registertovote. ca.gov. It only takes a few minutes to register and to make your voice is heard in one of the most consequential elections in our nation’s history. And if you’re already registered to vote, I encourage you to verify your registration status and to sign-up for ballot tracking.” Voting Begins in 32 Days Starting on October 5, 2020: • All counties will begin mailing ballots to every active, registered voter in California. • Voters will be able to vote early, in-person at their county elections office. Tips for Voters Californians are encouraged to take the following steps to prepare for the General Election: • Check your voter registration at VoterStatus.sos.ca.gov • Update your voter registration if you’ve moved or changed your name at RegisterToVote.ca.gov • Sign-up for automatic updates on the status of your vote-by-mail ballot at WheresMyBallot.sos. ca.gov Voter Registration Deadline October 19 is the traditional voter registration deadline for the November 3, 2020 General Election. If an eligible Californian misses the October 19 deadline, they can complete the same day voter registration process and cast their vote that day. However, this option is only available at county elections offices and inperson voting locations.
its role in stabilizing the housing market. We need a real, federal commitment of significant new funding to assist struggling tenants and homeowners in California and across the nation.” Under the legislation, no tenant can be evicted before February 1, 2021 as a result of rent owed due to a COVID-19 related hardship accrued between March 4 – August 31, 2020, if the tenant provides a declaration of hardship according to the legislation’s timelines. For a COVID-19 related hardship that accrues between September 1, 2020 – January 31, 2021, tenants must also pay at least 25 percent of the rent due to avoid eviction. Tenants are still responsible for paying unpaid amounts to landlords, but those unpaid amounts cannot be the basis for an eviction. Landlords may begin to recover this debt on March 1, 2021, and small claims court jurisdiction is temporarily expanded to allow landlords to recover these amounts.

Virtual Star Party This Weekend Julian Dark Sky Network invites evetyone to join Vivek and Doug Sollosy for a very special virtual star party Saturday, Sept.12 at 8pm. We'll be live streaming images and commentary from two different locations, the relatively dark skies at Curiosity Peak in Julian, and the typically light polluted skies of suburban San Marcos. Using almost identical equipment we will be livestreamimg images of an array of interesting celestial objects, including nebulae within our own Milky way, as well as galaxies far beyond. Unlike most star parties this one will provide a live view experience of the benefits of preserving naturally dark skies, as well as the negative consequences of unregulated light pollution, which unfortunately typifies most of our urban and residential communities. We can do something to make a difference. This year the JDSN, along with the Borrego Springs Dark Sky Coalition are working with Planning and Development Services of San Diego County to create a dark sky friendly lighting ordinance for present and future dark sky communities of San Diego County. To attend this unique event you only have to go to the youtube website and search for Curiosity Peak Observatory. When you reach our youtube channel, click on the livestream button, which will appear like a video you click on at 8pm. See you Saturday!
Vivek Vijayakumar took these astrophotos of the same galaxy, with the same equipment and exposure. What's the difference? Location! One was taken in the San Diego city of San Marcos, while the other was taken from Julian, CA. Can you guess which image was taken where? #lightpollutionmatters
• JUHSD will have sufficient protective equipment available for students and staff in order to comply with California Department of Public Health guidance for students and staff appropriate for each classification or duty, as well as relevant California Division of Occupational Safety and Health Administration requirements. • JUHSD will purchase sufficient number of no-touch thermal scan thermometers for symptom screening. • JUHSD will promote wearing of masks for those who may feel uncomfortable and not able to maintain the recommended six feet social distance. As of the timing of this plan, wearing of mask and maintaining social distance is a guidance; not a mandate. • JUHSD will open windows and maximize space between students and between students and the driver on school buses where practicable.
• JUHSD will minimize contact at school between students, staff, families and the community at the beginning and end of the school day where practicable. • JUHSD will consider use of non-classroom space for instruction, including regular use of outdoor space, weather permitting. For example, consider part-day instruction outside. • JUHSD will continue Block Master Schedule that already minimize student movement and interactions. Class size will continue to average 15-18 students. Larger classrooms and other large areas like the gym, Little Theatre, and Multi-Purpose Room will be utilize for instruction in order to assist in social distancing. The current schedule will be in place with Tuesday’s reopening starting on the odd (periods 1, 3, 5) day schedule, Wednesday will be even (periods 2, 4, 6). For parents intested in what the future holds there will be a School Board meeting Thusday evening at 6pm in room 4 at the High School. Social distancing [Covid-19] restrictions will be applied. As part of the meeting a public hearing for approval of text books and intsructional materials is on the agenda. Any member of the community is welcome at board meeting to observe or offer input.
How COVID-19 Has Impacted Tribal Communities (StatePoint) While the current health and economic crisis has impacted Americans nationwide, it has disproportionately affected the Native American/Alaska Native (NA/AN) community. Not only have chronic economic inequalities and systemic lack of infrastructure in many Indigenous territories put tribes at high risk, but these problems have been exacerbated by the loss of revenue experienced by tribal businesses shuttering their doors. Here are some of the persisting problems Native territories face, steps being taken to address them, and what you can do to help. • Infrastructure: Significant numbers of people in tribal communities lack basic utilities (electricity, running water) critical to adhering to federal COVID-19 prevention guidelines. Clinics, testing sites, personal protective equipment and other health essentials are also in short supply in Indian Country. Through funding and support, donors can help protect tribes from immediate health risks and mitigate the spread of the virus. • Information: Important government updates and virtual healthcare services are especially critical during this crisis. However, information access is a persisting problem in many tribal territories due to their largely remote and rural
locations. The FCC reports that 628,000 tribal households lack standard broadband access, a rate over four times that of the general population, and a 2019 study by the American Indian Policy Institute found nearly one in five reservation residents has no internet at home. • Economics: Tribal governments, which were already largely underfunded before COVID-19, are under incredible strain today, with major revenue streams, such as tribal casinos and gaming businesses closed down. Efforts are already providing some relief. In the case of housing, Wells Fargo announced $600,000 in grants to tribal housing programs via the Native American Indian Housing Council in May and $1 million across more than 20 nonprofit organizations since the start of the pandemic. Economic relief from many sources can also help address food insecurity, boost Native-owned businesses and fund other necessities. • Data Collection: A continued national response to the pandemic is dependent on accurate data. However, over 70 percent of those in tribal communities live in urban areas, where many use county and state health services. As a result, data black holes have emerged. Through accurate data collection, aid to support the NA/ AN community will be possible.
• How to Help: “Across the country, the pandemic has exacerbated health, housing and economic disparities, as well as food insecurity within diverse communities -- especially tribal regions,” says Diana “Dede” Yazzie Devine, CEO and president of Native American Connections, an Arizona-based Native American service and development organization. “We cannot forget all of this once COVID subsides. We need to focus on building a better future.” In the case of Native American Connections, volunteering is critical. On-site volunteerism (currently limited by COVID 19) like providing office support, preparing meals for local families or supporting housing needs, can help the lives of residents
and community members, while virtual-online donations can deliver much-needed funds. Other ways to help include making financial donations or donating to food banks that service tribal lands. One example includes a recent St. Mary’s Food Bank event in Arizona on Navajo Nation territory, where Wells Fargo’s Drive-Up Food Bank provided support in mid-August 2020. To learn more about what Wells Fargo is doing to help fight hunger in local communities, visit welcome.wf.com/foodbank. As the COVID-19 pandemic endures, addressing the needs of vulnerable tribal communities is critical to sustaining and strengthening them, and to the forward progress of future generations.

Back Country Happenings Stories And Songs Matter More Than Ever Right Now
(NAPS) - Here’s a thought that may make you feel like singing: In times like these, when so many people feel like lit.tle islands, connecting with other people to share stories and songs takes on a spe.cial significance. It’s long been popular. For much of human history, the center of people’s light and life was the humble campfire. It was a place to teach, share, connect, and give thanks. It was the hub of culture, where our ancestors gathered nightly to fight back the dark with their myths, sto.ries, and the joy of their voices raised in song. Stories and songs are basic units of shared culture that remain, even as the source of flickering light changed from fire to screens. These days, many social networks and streaming services are reporting global spikes in member activity. For example, on the “stories” side, nearly 16 million new people joined Netflix during the first part of the year, which was twice as many as expected. Other streaming services have seen rises as well, including Disney+. And under.scoring the many benefits of engaging in these libraries of “once upon a time,” watching streaming video has quickly become the #1 leisure activity for people at home. On the “songs” side, social singing network Smule has also seen a signifi.cant rise in new users joining in from all over the world. Smule is a global online community of music lovers where millions of people from all over come together each day to sing along with millions of popular songs, often with other peopleÑand sometimes with the stars who first sang the songs - plus make new friends, cheer each other on, and simply have fun. Your singing ability doesn’t matter; the thing all the members have in common is a love for singing, and a love for connecting with other people through the shared experi.ence of performing songs together. It’s somewhat like Snapchat and You-Tube, mashed up with an automated sound and video recording and effects studio. You can sing or record songs on video with new friends, karaoke by yourself, or sing a cappella. Members include people from all walks of life, including real-life superstars, such as Lewis Capaldi, who upload recorded versions of their top hits for other mem.bers to sing along with and repost to the network and other social media plat.forms. Fans can even sing along with Disney characters such as Moana to the hits from popular Disney films. Thousands of independent singing communities and teams have sprung up around the world, using Smule as the platform to showcase their singalongs. One such community, Apex Team, is a group of 46 young, talented and dynamic voices from all parts of the world who came together as a virtual choir that inspires online audiences with their enjoyable musical perfor. mances. Apex produces more than a hundred group collaborations a year, including a phenomenal performance of “Fight Song,” by Rachel Platten and Dave Bassett edited into a “Thank You” to frontline professionals in the fight against COVID-19. Meanwhile, some things haven’t changed. Shared light is better, stories and songs still matter. To learn more, go to www.smule. com or get the app at Google Play.
5 Seasonal DIY Home Improvement Projects (Family Features) The calendar pages may be turning fast, but it's not too late to do some work around the house. Now is the time to wrap up home improvement projects before the weather turns too cold. Consider these five easy DIY tasks that can set you up for a warm, safe and pest-free fall: Perform routine HVAC maintenance. Heating and cooling systems need regular service to operate at peak efficiency. Some tasks are best left to the pros, but there is plenty you can do on your own to minimize expenses and ensure your unit maintains its performance level. With the breaker and gas off, wipe the exterior of your furnace with a damp rag then remove the access door and vacuum the burners, base and blower compartment. Remove and clean the blower with a vacuum and small brush then use a drinking straw to blow dust off the pilot. Also inspect the flame sensor, drive belt and air filter, and clean or replace as needed. Air seal drafty areas. The gaps around windows and door frames give unwanted air an open invitation into a home. However, you can quickly and easily block the flow of air for greater comfort and lower energy bills. If the doors and windows are already finished, start by removing the trim. Prep the area by removing dust and debris. Using a quality sealant like Great Stuff Window & Door Insulating Foam Sealant, apply the foam to fill in about 50% of the gap around the window or door and framework, allowing room for the foam to expand. Wipe away imperfections and let sit 10-15 minutes until it's no longer tacky. Gently press the expanded foam into the gap using a putty knife. Check for damage to hardscaping. Walkways, patios and decks are all susceptible to wear that can lead to tripping hazards or allow rain, snow and ice to seep in and create larger problems. Take time to thoroughly assess these hardscape features and identify issues

• On Sept. 10, 1813, in the first unqualified defeat of a British naval squadron in history, U.S. Capt. Oliver Hazard Perry leads a fleet of nine American ships to victory over a squadron of six British warships. After the battle, Perry sent a famous dispatch to U.S. Gen. William Henry Harrison that read, "We have met the enemy, and they are ours." • On Sept. 9, 1939, audiences at the Fox Theater in Riverside, California, get a surprise showing of "Gone with the Wind." The film became an instant hit, breaking all box office records. It was nominated for more than a dozen Oscars and won nine. • On Sept. 8, 1945, U.S. troops land in Korea to begin their postwar occupation of the southern part of that nation, one month after Soviet troops had entered northern Korea to begin their own occupation. The division of Korea quickly became
permanent. • On Sept. 12, 1951, former middleweight champion Sugar Ray Robinson defeats Randy Turpin to win back the belt after losing to Turpin two months prior. Robinson knocked Turpin down with a right to the jaw in the 10th round. • On Sept. 11, 1965, the 1st Cavalry Division begins to arrive in South Vietnam, bringing U.S. troop strength to more than 125,000.

like loose stones and cracks in concrete that need repairs. Securing materials, filling cracks and patching problem areas can help prevent further damage during the colder months while restoring aesthetic appeal. Inspect your home's exterior. Many elements of your home serve essential roles in protecting your safety, regulating your home's efficiency and preventing damage. It's important to regularly check your roof for signs it needs repaired, such as missing or cracked shingles or noticeable sagging. Gutters can also accumulate a great deal of debris from falling leaves. Clearing these before cooler temperatures set in can help ensure rain has a clear path away from your house, protecting the walls and foundation. Also pay attention to other elements like paint that may require periodic updates to maintain its protective function. Eliminate entry points for pests. When temperatures start dropping, you're likely to see some movement with creatures who want to enjoy the comfort of your home. Make it clear they're not welcome by sealing up places they may be creeping in. A solution like Great Stuff Pestblock Insulating Foam Sealant lets you fill gaps and openings with a quick bead of foam. If a rodent has an established pathway, try using a combination of steel wool and the foam to deter it from gnawing through the barrier.

My Thoughts by Michele Harvey
Another Week Closer
by Kiki Skagen Munshi
That Dead Zucchini Plant There is a gopher in the garden. This is unthinkable! Where are the cats? The first clue was when the big zucchini plant, the huge one that has been producing a large squash every day or two, upped and died. On examination it lifted right off the ground, no roots at all. Scuffing around a bit, the hole appeared, a gopher-sized hole. Probably one of many. In a neutral universe the loss of this plant wouldn’t be that big a deal. We have been eating summer squash, giving it away and throwing it to the chickens for two months now and are, well, squashed out. And this wasn’t the only plant since there are several others elsewhere in the garden. But we have another month of production ahead and… it’s the principle of the thing, after all. A gopher! How DARE he! Or she. Goldie, who was with me as usual, one step ahead and right where I needed to put a slightly shaky old foot, sniffed the hole. He then peed in it and watched for a while. Presumably, he knows what he’s doing. We know what he needs to do which is to catch that gopher. And eat it. In public. An object lesson to gopherdom. There hasn’t been a gopher in the garden for years. The last one was flushed out with water to find a cat (another cat, not Goldie) staring at it. This is the stuff gopher nightmares are made of and let’s hear it for gopher nightmares. And let’s pretend we aren’t glad we don’t have to deal with that much more zucchini.
As World Faces Health Crises, New Report Finds Trust Is Vital (NAPS) - Recently, health experts gathered online to forecast the future of medicine. One theme: the increasing frequency of global crises. Now, COVID-19 has brought this hypothetical threat to life, and a report by the U.S. Pharmacopeia (USP), an independent, nonprofit, scientific orga.nization dedicated to improving pub.lic health through public standards and relate programs that help ensure the quality, safety and benefit of medicines and foods, and the MIT Cen.ter for Collective Intelligence can help. Called “Trust or Consequences 2040: Will Innovations in Health and Medicine Deliver?” identifies what may hap.pen in the future and explores the role that trust will play in helping people live longer and healthier. It identifies likely drivers of change, such as big data, artifi.cial intelligence (AI), gene editing, risks to health systems and medicine supply chains and opportunities to improve global health. Four scenarios surfaced: Scaling the tried and true: Rolling crises spur effective global collaboration to address health concerns. Medical advances based on big data and AI are implemented gradually. The focus is on baseline healthcare for all. Dangerous uncertainty: Problems with big data and AI lead to devastating healthcare failures. Unequal access to innovation means only the rich receive advanced treatments; people turn to folk medicines, science-based medicine is questioned. continued on page 10
Yes, we are another week or another day closer to our 2020 presidential election. This is what seems to rip friendships apart every four years and I get really tired of the tensions and the reactions that many people have to others who they once called friends. On Facebook I’ve seen so much name calling and swearing that some days it seems like I want to sit people down like I did with my boys when they were pre-teens. I told them that if they were angry at someone, say so! If they disagreed with someone, say so! Calling someone a name doesn’t solve anything except turning that person into an angry insulted person. That won’t help anyone or anything. If you want to vote for Donald Trump, then vote for him. If you want to vote for Joe Biden, then vote for him. I’m sure you all think that you have very good reasons. At least I hope you do. I’ve lived long enough and lived through enough presidential elections that I’ve seen plenty of times when a candidate won, not because people liked that candidate, but because they disliked the other candidate so much. With the November election coming toward us so soon, please don’t forget that other issues will be on your ballot that will need your attention. One that is all over social media is proposition 22. It’s best to read about and educate yourself about candidates and propositions. Don’t take other people’s words for what is right and what is wrong. National elections, state and local elections are very important. If you think your vote won’t count, I’ll repeat a story that Okie McNatt told me and I hope he doesn’t mind my retelling it, hoping I get the details correct. The last time that Okie ran for Mayor of Borrego Springs, he lost by one vote. He and his wife Lisa had both forgotten to vote, so if they voted, he could have won by one vote. Single votes matter folks. I’ve often been in discussions with people who like to complain about our government. If they are voters; they have that right. If people don’t vote; they have no right to complain about our government on any level. People who don’t get involved don’t have the right to complain either. If a person is upset with our government, write letters, write emails, go to meetings, make yourself heard. During the Cedar Fire of 2003, a firefighter named Steven Rucker died while fighting the fire and trying to save a home on the lane where I live. One of our local residents tried to get people to sign a petition to rename our lane after Mr. Rucker and to honor Steven Rucker. I refused to sign the petition and sent an email to our San Diego Supervisor Dianne Jacob telling her that if the lane that I live on were to be renamed after Steven Rucker, I would be reminded that he died fighting for my neighbor’s home and possibly had fought to keep my home safe as well, every time I drive on and off my lane. I would be reminded of his death every time I wrote a check or filled out a form where I had to write my address. No thank you. I suggested that a portion of Highway 79 be named in his honor and to this day you can see a sign with his name on it in Santa Ysabel for the Steven Rucker Memorial Highway. The Highway continues through to Cuyamaca. That man who lost his life doing his best to save our homes deserved more than to have a small lane renamed after him. The email I sent to my San Diego County Supervisor had a definite impact and I’m only one person. Imagine if every eligible person would speak up by voting? You can expect to receive your ballot in the mail on or about October 5th. Read your ballot carefully so you vote exactly the way you want to vote. The safest way for you to vote is by voting at home. If you don’t want to put your ballot in the mail, you can fill it out in the comfort of your home, seal it, sign it, and then place it in a ballot box. If you want to vote in person, you can vote early by taking your ballot to the registrar of voters or any of the open polling places from October 31st through November 3rd.This year there will be fewer polling places than have been in the past, so be ready. If you intend to vote in person, you must wear your mask. No exceptions. To find your current polling place, go to sdvote.com or look on the back of your sample ballot for the address. Voting is important. Educating yourself on the facts of the election is important. If you are concerned about election fraud, don’t be. The Loyola Law School did a study of voter fraud in California and found about 31 fraud cases out of 1billion through 2014. In more recent years, the Washington Post found 4 cases out of 100,000. Keep in mind that several states have voted exclusively by mail for years and California has allowed voting by mail for decades. Vote safe and please don’t forget to vote. These are my thoughts.
Keeping Kids Safe continued from page 3
take to help kids strike a healthy balance with their screen time for a happier, more successful school year: • Set a schedule: A typical school day includes natural breaks. Families can recreate this at home with scheduled time for kids to walk around, stretch, and get fresh air between assignments. • Monitor online usage: With parents themselves busy during the day, monitoring what children are doing online is a challenge in many cases, and impossible in others. However, screen time management solutions for parents, such as OurPact from Eturi Corp., can prove a valuable tool in keeping kids productive and safe. Using the app, parents can set schedules, grant access to needed sites, create daily screen time allowances, block inappropriate content and apps and monitor internet use. To learn more or download, visit OurPact.com. • Have a conversation: Families should have an open dialogue about healthy digital habits. Parents can back up these conversations by setting a good example with their own device usage. With the boost in online usage come new health and wellness challenges. At the same time, parents can help their children navigate the remote-learning environment by taking steps to promote healthy digital habits.

How hot the salsa is depends on the kind of peppers that are used. Peppers are rated according to their hotness on a scale called the When tomatoes and peppers are Scoville Organoleptic Test. Milder ripe and plentiful, folks will wonder peppers tend to be larger (4-10 what to do with all that produce. inches) and are “yellow-turningred.” Examples of milder peppers Salsa is one good option.

include bell peppers and sweet banana peppers, which rate at 0 Scoville Units, and so are very mild. More in the mid-range would be jalapeno peppers, which are rated at 5,000 Scoville Units and are tapered green or red chilies. The hottest variety is habanero, with a rating of 300,000 Scoville Units. The habanero resembles an orange lantern. Typically, the hotter peppers are smaller varieties (1-3 inches at maturity) and are colored “green-turning-red.” When working with hot peppers, be sure to wear gloves to prevent burns. Just cutting a habanero open, for example, can make a person’s eyes water! Adjust the spiciness of the salsa by selecting the type of pepper added to the mix. For a very mild salsa, use milder peppers. For a very hot salsa, use a greater proportion of hotter peppers to milder ones. Regardless of the product’s spiciness, don’t just add more peppers to make it hotter. The total amount of peppers should be the amount recommended in the recipe. The proportions are calculated out so that the recipe will be safely preserved. continued on page 11

This pair of dancers titled “Cavaliere Indiano and Danzatrice Indiana” were made in the 1930s in Turin, Italy. They have the incised mark “Cia Manna.” The pair was estimated at $800 to $1,200 but did not sell.
The Julian News 7
Pairs of ceramic dancing figures in exotic costumes were favorites in the Art Deco period, starting about 1920. Many different pairs about 19 or 20 inches high have been selling with the mark "Cia Manna" and sometimes the added words "Turin, Italy." A search of old books and even new information online has offered little insight. The pairs of dancing figurines depict a bare-breasted woman and a shirtless man posing in exaggerated dance poses. Dozens of different pairs were made, most from 1925 to the 1950s. An artist and designer named Mrs. Manna, who worked for the Lenci doll company, decided to form her own company in 1930. She named it Ceramica Italiana Artistica. The dancing figurines were marked "C.I.A. Manna." Often the mark omitted the periods, so the first word looked like "Cia." The company worked into the 1950s. The Art Deco look is still popular,
and most of the pairs have sold for $800 to $1,500. *** Q: How can I determine whether there is lead in older china, especially in pieces I intend to use for food? I was told by a friend there is a test kit for lead, and that the kits are available in hardware stores. In the hardware stores I checked, the kits were for checking lead in drinking water, not china. Is there such a kit for testing the safety of older china? A: You can order kits online that test for lead, but the most reliable tests are done with professional equipment. It's not how much lead is in the dish, but how much lead leaches out. In 1971, the Food and Drug Administration set limits on the amount of lead in dishware; the regulations were updated in 1993. New dishes that don't meet the standards must be marked "Not for Food Use" or designed with holes so the dish can't be used for food.
Dishes made before the standards were set, the brightly colored pottery made in other countries or handmade dishes, may have glazes that leach. Don't use the dish if the glaze is damaged, cracked or painted silver decoration that has turned black. Acidic foods, hot liquids, microwaving and washing dishes in the intense heat of the dishwasher all may cause leaching. *** CURRENT PRICES Bride's basket, silver plate, twist handle, ruffled cased cranberry glass insert, Forbes Silver Co., 12 x 10 inches, $60.

Grandparents are great! Some kids have a grandmother or grandfather living in their home. They spend time together every day. Many children live near their grandparents and get to visit often. Other kids live miles away from their grandparents and have to take a long drive or a flight to get to their homes for a visit. Cars, planes, phones, computers and the mail help us keep in touch with grandparents. Holidays and vacations are wonderful times to get together, hear family stories, and share meals and fun times. Grandparents can teach us many things. They help to care for us. They take us places.

My dad died in early August. Though I learned a lot about the grieving when I was preparing to be a nurse and later when I was studying to be a pastor, knowing something in theory is different from knowing it in our experience. But the things I learned have been helpful. The book I have referred to most often recently is “Understanding Your Grief “by Alan Wolfelt, PhD. Many of us have heard of the five stages of grief by Elizabeth Kubler-Ross. Though her research has been helpful, most of us find that our grief does not fit the model exactly or move smoothly through each phase. Generally, people go through cycles of feeling better and then worse. Gradually, the feeling better lasts longer and the feeling worse is less often and less bad. Most people find that there is always some lingering grief. It was helpful to be reminded that grief heals more quickly when we allow ourselves to experience it. Alan Wolfelt says, “You need to feel it to heal it.” We don’t need to disappear into it or experience it all at once but we also should not try to escape from it with busyness, sleeping too much or addictive behaviors. The amount of grief one experiences is not a reflection of someone’s strength or weakness. Grief is proportional to the value of what was lost. It is entirely appropriate to cry or openly express sadness for someone beloved. Grief can be triggered by various things and can surface unexpectedly. This can be especially upsetting if you think you are feeling better and then suddenly, you start crying when you hear a particular song on the radio or run into a mutual friend. Holidays, anniversaries and birthdays can be more difficult than other days, but it is especially important to not try to avoid thinking of or speaking about the person. It can be helpful to find ways to honor that person or intentionally recall memories on those days. For years after my mother died, our family met with my dad at one of her favorite restaurants on her birthday. We ate foods she liked best and shared “I remember when …” stories about her. It can also be helpful to incorporate new ways of celebrating holidays that don’t keep us locked in a past that no longer exists. When someone we are in close relationship with dies, we can feel disoriented. Our reality has actually changed. We may need to adjust our self-image (no longer wife but widow) or adjust our living situation because of changes in income. If we gave all our time to that person, we may need to cultivate new relationships or new activities. These adjustments add to the feelings of loss and disorientation. We generally think of grief as an emotional process but it also affects us physically, mentally, socially and spiritually. These last few weeks I have been more lethargic and forgetful. Death of a loved one can challenge our faith or raise questions and doubts. Some families are drawn closer by grief and others become more contentious. It is important to be mindful of these various effects of grief and care for all aspects of ourselves. I have been especially comforted by kind words from friends and family in person and in cards and notes. It is especially nice to receive a note with a few words of why the person liked my father or a particular memory of him. Talking with a cousin who lost his mom this year or a friend who recently lost her husband has been helpful too. Their experience isn’t the same as mine but it is comforting to know others are walking a similar journey and that our feelings are normal. This is why joining a grief group is a good idea.

One-Party Rule In California Is Backfiring According to U.S. Census Bureau projections, California will lose at least one seat in the U.S. House of Representatives after the 2020 Census. This is because the total number of representatives is fixed at 435 and allocated to population. This zero-sum game means that states with decreasing or static population will lose, and states with growing population will win. Since statehood in 1850, California has consistently gained representation in Congress because it was the land of boundless opportunity and promise. Now, not so much. So why are Californians leaving the formerly Golden State for states such as Texas, which is projected to pick up three house seats? The reasons are many and complex: Cost of living, crime, homelessness, crumbling infrastructure, burdensome regulations and high taxes. Add to that gross mismanagement of the pandemic response, failure to manage our forests leading to catastrophic fires and green policies that caused a shortage of electricity and rolling blackouts. All these ills can be traced to a single cause: One-party rule. Three recent events reveal this in stark terms. First is the partisan decision to award a $35 million contract for a public relations campaign to “encourage voting” to a firm which works exclusively for Democratic causes and candidates. The contract was not awarded on a “low bid” basis but on subjective criteria that almost begs for a corrupt outcome. The “winning” public relations firm, SKD Knickerbocker, has close ties to former Vice President Joe Biden and is known for its work pushing progressive causes. Just imagine if President Trump spent $35 million of public funds to hire Karl Rove’s firm to “encourage voting” in the November election. Mainstream media would have a meltdown. Second on the list is the warning issued by California’s non-partisan state auditor, Elaine Howle, to Gov. Gavin Newsom
by Jon Coupal
about her serious doubts about the California’s disbursement of $17 billion in federal COVID-19 relief funds. Specifically, Howle has identified 18 state bureaucracies as “high risk” for potential waste, fraud or abuse. The question that taxpayers have is why would the state auditor have this concern if it were not for the abject failure of both the executive branch and the legislative branch to conduct serious oversight about how public dollars are spent? The answer is that, with oneparty rule, there is no serious oversight. Third, last week longtime columnist, Dan Walters, reminded us about the lack of transparency in so-called “trailer bills.” 2010 was the year when the budget process was corrupted by the passage of Proposition 25, ironically titled the “On-Time Budget Act of 2010.” Voters were told three things about Prop. 25: First, budgets would now be passed on time; second, the budget process would be transparent; and third, legislators would forfeit their pay if the budget was not passed on time. All three were lies. Moreover, because the primary goal of Prop. 25 was to reduce the vote threshold for passage of the budget from two-thirds to a simple majority, it deprives the minority party of any meaningful input. After identifying several bills under consideration, Walters notes, “In practice, so-called ‘trailer bills’ have become vehicles to semi-secretly do things that might otherwise be difficult to do, often with little or no relationship to the budget.” Transparency in the budgeting process is thus another victim of one-party rule in California. This concentrated power in one party without any meaningful check has perverted our political institutions in ways that will prove difficult to reverse until voters take action. *** Jon Coupal is the president of the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association.

® Dear EarthTalk: It seems to me that oil companies could stay relevant in the age of electric vehicles by offering high-speed electric charging (as well as gas) at their filling stations. Are any of them moving in this direction? -- Bill A., Poultney, VT While it goes against the business model of an oil company to promote a competing technology (electricity), the big players have all seen the writing on the wall as demand for electric vehicles (EVs) surges of late. Shell, BP, Chevron and others are starting to embrace giving customers other options besides gasoline fill-ups in an attempt to retain loyalty regardless of which type of drivetrain rolls in. Royal Dutch Shell started to go big in EV charging in 2017 with the acquisition of NewMotion, Europe’s largest EV charging network with more than 30,000 nodes and a customer base topping 80,000 EV drivers. Subsequently, Shell inked a partnership with Ionity, the EV charging technology/network created in partnership with BMW, Mercedes, Ford and Volkswagen to provide seamless EV-charging across Europe. Shell also rolled out its first few EV recharging nodes at existing refueling stations in the UK and Netherlands to test market demand, and a strong response has caused Shell to expand the program. In 2019, Shell started implementing EV charging in the U.S. with the acquisition of Greenlots, a California-based provider of EV charging and energy management software and the installation of its first U.S.based EV charging station at Logan Airport in Boston, Massachusetts. And just this past summer, Shell launched its RechargePlus program in California with plans to deploy EV charging infrastructure at commercial, retail, public and government locations as well as at multi-unit residential dwellings across the state. EV enthusiasts are optimistic that Shell continues to develop its EV charging infrastructure given the company’s huge retail reach of 25,000 filling stations globally. Not one to be left behind, rival UK-based oil giant BP got serious about EV charging in 2018 with the acquisition of Chargemaster, the UK’s largest EV charging network, and major investments in U.S.based FreeWire Technologies, which develops EV fast chargers, and Israeli EV-battery developer StoreDot. Within a year, BP opened the first BP-branded charging station in the UK, and the company plans to roll out dozens more in the next few years. U.S.-based Chevron is also getting in on things. Last year Chevron installed EV charging nodes at five of its retail gas stations in California in partnership with EVgo, an EV charging network already spanning 34 U.S. states. As demand for EVs surge, expect Chevron to incorporate EVgo charging systems in many more of its stations in and around major metropolitan areas where people tend to have electric cars. For its part, ExxonMobil, America’s largest oil company, doesn’t seem particularly interested in EVs or EV charging. This past Fall its CEO Darren Woods was quoted as saying he “doesn’t get the point” about EVs when they “end up being charged by power generated from coal.” The point is EV drivers might want to look elsewhere for a recharge than an ExxonMobil station at least for the near future.

New Energy Storage Technologies to Support Renewables Post COVID-19
(NAPS) - Cleaner air can improvepublic health, maybe even save lives. Fortunately, renewable energy resources - wind, sun, hydropowerand the like - are now producing moreelectricity than coal. That’s where inno.vative energy storage solutions comein. They help create a cleaner world,encouraging investment into clean, green, renewable energy. To help, engi.neers and policymakers are increasingly turning their attention to energy storage solutions. New bipartisan effortsin states such as New York and the Trump administration are in alignment to support new energy storage technol.ogies that drastically improve the eco.nomics of wind and solar projects. The global rise in electricity gener.ation from renewable sources has led to increased demand for advanced bat. teries that can be used to firm up this intermittent supply. This requirementis particularly important in areas where grid connections may be tenuous,unreliable or even nonexistent. Addi.tional demand for advanced batteries is presented by grid applications such as peak-shifting and Transmission andDistribution (T&D) capital deferral. Energy storage systems provide many ways to manage the power supplyfor a more resilient energy infrastruc.ture, and bring cost savings to utilities and consumers. Batteries allow the use of electricity whenever it’s needed, notonly when it’s generated. However, tra. ditional battery economics and performance have not proved helpful asutilities look to increase renewable penetration through long-duration energy storage. The Problem One of the challenges to growing a North American energy storage indus.try, however, has been a dependency on a supply chain of hardware compo.nents, metals and chemicals, many of which come from outside North Amer.ica. As well, metals such as lithium and vanadium used in some batteries are impacted by price volatility and secu.rity of supply. An Answer Those same risks do not apply to zinc-air batteries. Zinc is abundant and inexpensive, with a significant NorthAmerican supply. Its chemistry is robust and safe. A zinc-air battery hasdecoupled energy and power, makingit one of the lowest-cost long-duration battery storage solutions available. A safer, cleaner future requires less polluted air which

means replacement of carbonbased power generation with renewable, sustainable sources of elec.tricity. Long-duration, low-cost energy storage systems such as zinc-air will be a key driver to a quicker path towards a greener future. A “bet” on energy storage is a wager that will deliver a cleaner planet that will thrive for current and future generations, suggests Ron Mac.Donald, president and CEO of Zinc8 Energy Solutions, the leader in zinc-air battery technology, a unique flow bat.tery technology using zinc and air as fuel.

Big data and AI create inexpensive diagnostic tools. Diseases become more predictable and healthcare emphasizes prevention. New treatments and tech.nological advances curb costs.

(StatePoint) While some of the traditions of a typical birthday are not possible these days, parents can find new ways to celebrate these important milestones. Here are a few ideas for making your child’s upcoming birthday feel special: • Host a Virtual Party: Use video conferencing tools to host a party for your child. Consider picking a theme or activity for the event. Start with a meet and greet and then dive right in -- from painting and pottery to sing-alongs and science projects, there are many fun themes that work well from a distance. Remember to tell all your guests in advance what they will need to participate or even drop off pre-made goody bags with supplies and snacks to celebrate. • Plan a Drive-by Birthday Parade: These days, drive-by celebration parades are all the

It’s also a good idea to try out the peppers you plan to use in your salsa by trying half of a hot pepper first, stirring the salsa, letting it sit for a few minutes and tasting for heat. See if the temperature is what you expect and what you prefer. It’s easier to adjust the mix of peppers in the salsa to gradually make it a little hotter by adding more peppers than it is to deal with an excessively hot and spicy salsa after it’s prepared. If someone finds your salsa a bit too hot for their tastes, you might try serving it with some sour cream or salty chips to help calm that spicy flavor. This recipe for Spicy Fruit Salsa combines hot peppers and juicy summer fruits. It’s perfect for a snack or appetizer and is also delicious as a topping for fish, chicken or pork. THE DIVA’S SPICY FRUIT SALSA Be sure to wear gloves or wash your hands immediately after handling peppers. Do not touch your face, eyes, nose or mouth. To reduce the heat of the peppers and retain the flavor, cut the peppers open and remove the seeds and the ribs, wash your hands thoroughly and proceed with the recipe. 1 large firm but ripe mango, peeled and cubed 1 large firm but ripe peach, peeled and cubed 2 large firm but ripe tomatoes, cored, seeded and coarsely chopped, or 16 grape or cherry tomatoes, cut into quarters 1 cup diced red onion 1 or 2 fresh jalapenos, stemmed and minced 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice 1 tablespoon honey 1 1/2 teaspoons chili powder 1 teaspoon salt 1/3 cup finely chopped cilantro 1. In a large bowl, combine the mango, peaches, tomatoes, onion, jalapenos, lime juice, honey, chili powder and salt. Stir well to combine.
