Elementary - Jr. High Schools To Restart September 28




County Library Announces Limited In Branch Service To Resume We are excited to announce that the San Diego County Library has reopened branches for limited in-person services on Sept 10, 2020. While our commitment to service will always stay the same, you will notice some changes when you visit. Branches offer In-Person Modified Services on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. Our hours will be 10 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. and 1:30 p.m. – 4 p.m. The midday closure allows for thorough cleaning of public spaces within the buildings. And Walk-Up Door-side service will happen on Mondays and Fridays, 10am-4pm. What should I expect when I visit? The most noticeable change with in-person service is that we are letting fewer people into our buildings in order to ensure physical distancing. You may experience a wait time to get into the building. Our library staff will be at the front door to answer any questions. There will also be more space. Some furniture and computers have been removed to ensure physical distancing and to provide wider walkways. Directional floor markings have been placed in the stacks and seating will be limited in some areas. The modified in-person services will include access to computers, printers and copiers, and WiFi. Customers will be able to browse the stacks and check out books, CDs, and movies. Walk-up Door-side service is also still available at all 33 branches on Mondays and Fridays. Once a customer has received a notice, by email, phone, or print mail that they have items ready for pickup, they can visit the branch during open hours to pick up the materials, with no appointment needed. How is the library addressing health and safety? The safety of our staff and customers is our primary concern and we will be complying with public health guidelines for physical distancing and facial coverings. Additionally, on the days set up for In-person modified service, cleaning will take place throughout the day and all branches will be closed from 12:30pm-1:30pm for sanitation. You can also return any materials you might still have. For the safety of library staff and customers, and at the recommendation of the Institute for Library and Museum Services and the California State Library, all returned materials will be quarantined for at least 4 business days. It may take several days to remove the items from your library account, but rest assured you will not be fined for those days while the materials are quarantined. The schedule of service and frequently asked questions are available on our website. Please visit sdcl.org/services for more information. We’ll see you at the Library!

Monday evening (14th) all parents of the Julian Elementary and Jr High were invited to a “zoom” meeting to hear the plans for “hybrid” learning as we all begin to transition into the new whatever. The thumbnail outline is that on campus learning is scheduled to re-start on both campuses Monday September 28. The purpose of the online “zoom” meeting was to educate parents to their options. Either students can return to campus – with strict restrictions, or continue with distance learning. Transportation will be the first adjustment. Bus service will only be from Mesa Grande and Shelter Valley/Butterfield. Temperature checks and hand sanitizing will be required prior to loading on the bus and seating will be assigned to insure physical distance between students. Students from Pine Hills, Harrison Park, Whispering Pines, Kentwood and Wynola plus other areas previously able to ride to school on the bus will have to be transported by other means(ie. Parents/guardians/ neighbors). Currently the plan is for a Monday through Thursday schedule starting at the regular time 7:50. Friday will be teacher prep day. Classes will be staggered with each class being in its own “bubble” or cohort. Interaction between classrooms will not be allowed. According to the States guidelines second grade and above will be required to wear masks while in class. Teachers will also be equipped with masks and hand sanitizing will stressed throughout the day. Younger students will be mask optional. Guidance Once Re-Opened to In-Person Instruction (From the California Department of Public Health) How should schools think about testing? Once schools are re-opened to at least some in-person

instruction, it is recommended that surveillance testing be implemented based on the local disease trends. If epidemiological data indicates concern for increasing community transmission, schools should increase testing of staff to detect potential cases as lab testing capacity allows. Who should be tested and how often? School staff are essential workers, and staff includes teachers, para-professionals, cafeteria workers, janitors, bus drivers, or any other school employee that may have contact with students or other staff. School districts and schools shall test staff periodically, as testing capacity permits and as practicable. Examples of recommended frequency include testing all staff over 2 months, where 25% of staff are tested every 2 weeks, or 50% every month to rotate testing of all staff over time. What if a school or school district reopens to in-person instruction, but the county is later placed on the county monitoring list? Schools should begin testing staff, or increase frequency of staff testing but are not required to close.

• To reduce possibilities for infection, students must remain in the same space and in cohorts as small and consistent as practicable, including for recess and lunch. Keep the same students and teacher or staff with each group, to the greatest extent practicable. • Prioritize the use and maximization of outdoor space for activities where practicable. • Minimize movement of students and teachers or staff as much as practicable. For example, consider ways to keep teachers with one group of students for the whole day. In secondary schools or in situations where students have individualized schedules, plan for ways to reduce mixing among cohorts and to minimize contact. • Maximize space between seating and desks. Distance teacher and other staff desks at least six feet away from student desks. Consider ways to establish separation of students through other means if practicable, such as, six feet between desks, where practicable, partitions between desks, markings on classroom floors to promote distancing or arranging desks in a way that minimizes face-to-face contact. • Consider redesigning activities for smaller groups and

rearranging furniture and play spaces to maintain separation. • Staff should develop instructions for maximizing spacing and ways to minimize movement in both indoor and outdoor spaces that are easy for students to understand and are developmentally appropriate. • Activities where there is increased likelihood for transmission from contaminated exhaled droplets such as band and choir practice and performances are not permitted. • Activities that involve singing must only take place outdoors. • Implement procedures for turning in assignments to minimize contact. • Consider using privacy boards or clear screens to increase and enforce separation between staff and students. Non-Classroom Spaces • Limit nonessential visitors, volunteers and activities involving other groups at the same time. • Limit communal activities where practicable. Alternatively, stagger use, properly space occupants and disinfect in between uses. • Consider use of non-

by Michael Hart

classroom space for instruction, including regular use of outdoor space, weather permitting. For example, consider part-day instruction outside. • Minimize congregate movement through hallways as much as practicable. For example, establish more ways to enter and exit a campus, create staggered passing times when necessary or when students cannot stay in one room and create guidelines on the floor that students can follow to enable physical distancing while passing. In addition, schools can consider eliminating the use of lockers and moving to block scheduling, which supports the creation of cohort groups and reduces changes of classrooms. • Serve meals outdoors or in classrooms instead of cafeterias or group dining rooms where practicable. Where cafeterias or group dining rooms must be used, keep students together in their cohort groups, ensure physical distancing, and consider assigned seating. Serve individually plated or bagged meals. Avoid sharing of foods and utensils and buffet or familystyle meals.

How To Help Your 2nd, 3rd, 4th And 5th Grader Adjust To Socially Distanced Elementary School

From masks in class to small-group recess, here's what safe in-person school could look like, plus strategic tips for getting kids on board. by Carol Lloyd <GreatSchools.org>

Nobody knows exactly how or when our children will be back in the classroom or what safety measures schools will take to limit the transmission of COVID-19. What we do know is that when in-person school resumes, every aspect of the school day will probably be affected. The key things to model for kids of all ages? Calmness, flexibility, and a willingness to take the necessary steps to keep everyone safe. Kids between the ages of 7 and 10 tend to be intensely social and sensitive to what their peers and parents think. They may be hyper-critical, of themselves and others, and may seem rulesobsessed. And they may have a lot of questions about how safe they are. To avoid generating worry, keep your responses to their questions calm and empathetic. If you don’t have an answer, don’t be afraid to say, “I don’t know.” Above all, listen to their fears and feelings. This mask is so annoying! If your child’s class is required to wear masks, your child may push back, especially if they’ve spent most of the summer at home where they didn’t need to wear one. Make sure their mask is comfortably fitting, and consider doing a family maskmaking activity (here’s a quick tutorial on making custom-sized

masks for children) and letting them decorate their own masks with fabric paints or markers. And if crafting is just a bridge too far, consider an online shopping expedition where your child can choose a face mask that they like. The rules keep changing! Kids this age like to know what the rules are, and they have a low tolerance for inconsistency on the part of the adults around them. Backtracking or uncertainty around the latest rules and regulations is likely to be met with objections, especially from older kids. Be honest with your child and say that scientists are studying the best ways to keep everyone safe, and that it’s an ongoing process. As much as you may feel like throwing a full-on tantrum of your own, this is a chance to model a really important life skill: how to calmly

cope when things are uncertain. My best friend isn’t in my cohort! At some schools, kids may be divided into small groups that they’ll stick with for learning, eating, and playing; the idea is to minimize widespread infection if one child becomes sick. If your super-social butterfly is unhappy with their group, keep an open dialog with your child’s teacher about any conflicts, but have empathy for how much teachers are dealing with right now. And help your child set up times to see their other friends virtually, if you can. Hey, no pushing! Just as kids have to curb their spontaneous displays of affection, they also have to quash the impulse to tackle, hit, push, or wrestle. Exercise is the balm your child needs, both for continued on page 8

Congratulations to all the Businesses and Individuals Recognized this year.

Though the ceremony was virtual, the winners are very real, outstanding folks.

Apple Picking Tips

Go early in the season and call ahead to confirm that apples are still available for picking. Once the apples are gone, that’s it until next year. Take enough cash. Many locales only accept cash and it makes transactions quicker and easier. Prepare to spend (a lot) more money than you would on grocery store apples. The apple picking experience definitely costs more than a trip to the produce section. Don’t fret about not being able to pick tons of apples. Nearly all the orchards have pre-bagged apples available for purchase if your little farmers grow weary of picking early on. Don’t expect mountain cold weather. Just because Julian is located in the mountains doesn’t mean you’ll need a jacket. Check the temperatures before you make the trip. San Diego in autumn could be as warm as a summer day. Pack plenty of water to drink and wear hats, sunscreen and close-toed shoes. Make a day out of your trip to experience Julian. This little mining town has so many aspects aside from the apple picking. Julian is best when you allow yourself an entire day to explore––but due to Covid-19, research which shops and restaurants will be open during your visit and plan accordingly.

How Social Media Is Teaming Up With Traditional Media

Newspapers were the original social media. People read news articles, then share those with their friends, family members and business colleagues. The method of doing that has been developed to facilitate the process with digital options which have made sharing faster and more widespread, sometimes creating a viral effect. Journalists are becoming more influential in the digital age with the help of Facebook, Twitter and other social media. Reaching the public and connecting with journalists has become so much easier for savvy media relations pros who use social media effectively and routinely. One great program, which has helped traditional media prosper, is the Facebook Journalism Project, which works with publishers around the world to strengthen the connection between journalists and the communities they serve. Facebook works with and funds organizations that fund quality journalism and helps build sustainable futures for community-based news. Facebook visits newsrooms and offers online courses to train journalists on how to leverage social tools to tell stories that matter. Facebook partners with news publishers and nonprofits to combat misinformation, promote news literacy, fund new initiatives, share best practices, and improve journalism on the Facebook platforms. Journalists like to work with media relations people who follow them on social media and engage in a meaningful way by commenting, sharing and providing relevant content, which helps boost their status. Before pitching the media, it helps to check what journalists are posting on social media, to see what topics would interest them. Some of the most active Twitter accounts belong to journalists. The public can take an active role in a story by replying directly to journalists on Twitter, retweeting, answering questions, or soliciting news tips. Twitter has helped journalists with tips for using Twitter right here on their site, including how to: 1- Hide replies 2- Mute the conversation 3- Secure the account 4- Modify notifications 5- Embed an existing video 6- Use advanced search 7- Search Tweets that mention their reporting 8- Create lists 9- Get the latest Tweets first 10- Set alerts Many newspapers have their own Facebook and Twitter pages, and include the Twitter address of their journalists right on their contact page, to promote engagement. The sites with the most traffic include links to the social media to enable easy sharing. A lot of social media activity starts with the original reporting of professional journalists in traditional media. Journalists share content from the social media sites of content providers. For pitching story ideas, most journalists prefer being contacted by email. If contacted by social media, they would usually soon try to move that conversation to email or a phone call.

How To Help Your Middle Schooler Adjust To Socially Distanced Middle School

Being a middle schooler just got harder. This intensely social age group has to find ways to express themselves, individuate from their parents and pursue their passions amidst a whole new set of rules and restrictions. But since the latest research suggests that kids aged 10 to 19 are at least as likely as adults to transmit the virus, getting them on board is crucial. Take this thing off! Rules at school will vary, but in general it’s good practice to wash or sanitize your hands before you remove your mask, place it into a designated paper or plastic bag while you’re not wearing it, and wash your hands again after removing it. Before masking up again—you guessed it—wash your hands! Information is power—but dosage is important Participating in informed discussions about the latest news and numbers may help older kids feel some control and alleviate their anxiety. Some kids will be interested in charts and graphs depicting efforts to flatten the curve, or in apps that track cases in your area. But put limits on consuming coronavirus news (that goes for the adults, too). Research shows that overexposure to negative news provokes fear, anxiety and other damaging outcomes. Instead of letting your middle schoolers watch a steady stream of TV news, find an article or video you can share and talk about. continued on page 10

(StatePoint) September is National Piano Month, a month-long celebration of a versatile and beautiful instrument. Whether you are a novice, a virtuoso or just a fan, there are many ways to celebrate pianos and the music that they make. To get inspired, check out these great ideas from singer, musician and lifestyle blogger, Rachael Burgess: • Listen to piano music. Piano music is versatile, from soft coffee house instrumental, to powerful ballads. This is the perfect time to delve into piano music and discover what you love. Make a playlist of your favorites, and listen all month long. • Play. You don’t have to be a seasoned musician to enjoy playing a keyboard. Most popular songs are made up of very simple chord progressions that anyone can learn to play -- and you are never too old or too young to try. • Support a pianist. Know any piano players? Tell them you would love to listen to them play and set up a time for a mini concert. • Mix up your practice routine. Are you already a pianist? Sit down and write out some musical goals you have for the month of September. Figure out ways you can practice better so you can achieve them. • Record a new piece. Learn a new song. Once you’ve nailed it, record it. You don’t have to share it, but it’s fun to look back and see how you’ve improved over the years. Or compose your own piece, choosing a topic that resonates with your soul. • Invest in a new keyboard. There is nothing like a new instrument to give you a greater appreciation for music. If you are shopping around, consider the expansive portfolio of digital keyboards and pianos from Casio, which have features that appeal to musicians of all skill levels. The Privia PX-S1000, for example, can be connected to your smartphone and controlled via the free Chordana Play for Piano app. You can also digitally record music by connecting your keyboard via USB to your computer. With keys meant to imitate real ivory and a warm rich sound, it’s a compact, portable option that’s modern and stylish.

“Twine: A Novel” by Monica Duncan

(Wall & Emerson, Inc.) When Juniper Kowalski, a mediocre artist and graduate of one of the best art schools in the country, gets pregnant by her married lover, she ends up back in Gobles, Michigan, living in her dead grandma’s trailer. She fears that her new life as a hotel maid, and as the best friend of a sub-rural call girl, has fulfilled some bleak fate. But Juniper’s pregnancy also ignites a will to create. Every hurt that she’s ever suffered begins to emerge as confron-tational, public art. “Twine” celebrates a quietly radical view of small-town life, ambition and motherhood. It’s the story of a young woman who needs no hero—and what she does when he shows up anyway. Purchase at http://bit.ly/2LxoUHF.

“Pursuits Unknown” by Ellen Clary

(SparkPress) Amy and her Kelpie-shepherd mix, Lars, work with a search team that specializes in finding lost people. Lars is no ordinary dog. He and Amy have a telepathic connection that lets them communicate and increase their success rate. When the two are tasked with finding a missing scientist, they discover him suffering from an Alzheimer’s-like disorder “disorientation,” and quickly realize this is not a typical case. Instead, this assignment appears to be an attempt to steal the man’s highly sensitive research on nanotechnol-ogy—which, in the wrong hands, could be used to wipe out “undesirables” from their overpopulated world. Forced to go undercover to seek out the truth, Amy will have to confront—and surpass—her own limitations. Purchase at https://amzn.to/2FZJCeX.

6 Cool Ideas for Family Fun (StatePoint) What better way to enjoy your free time than by making lasting memories with your loved ones? Whether exploring the great outdoors or making music, families can take the opportunity to spend some time together. Here are a few fun ideas to consider: • Play ball: Head to a nearby park and play soccer, basketball or baseball. Get competitive by selecting teams in advance and wearing matching colors to show your team spirit. • Sing-along: Using new technology, you can take your family sing-along to the next level. Using a Casiotone keyboard, download favorite songs, print

out the lyrics and have each family member sing a verse or two. You can even connect your phone to the keyboard to play music from your song library. • Game day: Rainy day? No problem. Let every family member pick a favorite board game and spend the day playing each one. • Get outdoors: Finding the nearest fishing hole or picnic spot is easy with a timepiece that can help you navigate the terrain. For example, Pro Trek watches provide quad sensor technology that detects compass bearing, barometric pressure, altitude and temperature, plus an accelerometer for counting

steps, all which can support your outdoor adventure. • Learn a skill: From painting to pickling to Portuguese, there are a range of online classes

available that can help your family master a new skill right from the comfort of home.

Really Good Advice

by Kiki Skagen Munshi

Immigration Status ... Please

Haiduc and Hidalgo want an immigration lawyer. This is because of Ben. Ben has declined to state his political affiliations, but he’s a red horse so one wonders. On the other hand, Hidalgo is also red, but he comes from a formerly Communist country so it is another kind of red. And it is that coming from a formerly Communist country that is the problem. Not the communist part, but the “another country” part. Ben is charging that H and H are illegal immigrants and should be deported. Immediately. Like yesterday. In a way, it’s all Haiduc’s fault. When Ben first came, Hidalgo bit him enough to shape him up (Horses aren’t exactly subtle in their internal politics as you might have noticed) but once the pecking order was resolved, Hidalgo backed off. Unfortunately, Haiduc, who is a classic bully, moved in. Ben is bigger and younger but had apparently never been in a group before and is, well, picked on. By Haiduc. Until now. The worm has turned. Maybe Ben was watching Fox News, perhaps a migratory bird complained about red tape — in any case, he found a way to hit back. SURELY these two Romanians must be illegal immigrants. Sigh. Back to the files. No, not illegal immigrants. The files bring back…never mind. We only describe getting The Boys out of Romania, across Hungary and Austria and to the the airport in Frankfurt after three or four or more glasses of wine… but they have Legitimatie as we say in Romania (identity bulletins) FEI passports, permissions to pass through Hungary and Austria and into Germany AND, finally, the US Dept. of Agriculture, West Point’s okay to import them into the U.S. What they don’t have is visas in their passports. A problem? Who knows? But as they were only five when they were brought here and now are twenty five, perhaps they qualify under DACA… We must have a chat with Ben. Also with Haiduc. Oh, politics…

News For Noses

(NAPSI)—Nasal congestion is nothing to sneeze at. It affects roughly 20 percent of the population and is associated with reduced quality of life, difficulty sleeping, reduced daytime performance, and increased need for healthcare. In addition to the physical misery, it is estimated the annual financial impact of chronic congestion is more than $5 to $10 billion. Fortunately, scientists are coming up with new and better ways to deal with the problem. New Device That’s good news since, until recently, most of the current treatments for nasal congestion and season allergies were drugs that must be regularly ingested in the form of nasal sprays (decongestants or steroids), pills (decongestants or antihistamines) or uncomfortable nasal irrigators. Each of these has its own side effects and risks. In addition, current treatments provide only partial or temporary relief. Fortunately, there’s a new patented device that uses a combination of acoustic vibrations, and gentle, resistant pressure to help open nasal breathing and relieve nasal congestion, naturally—in as little as three minutes. Called SinuSonic, it consists of a fully disposable medical-grade silicone nosepiece on a resin body. A flutter valve on top creates gentle, self-guided oscillating expiratory resistance. A recent study published in the prestigious International Forum of Allergy and Rhinology (IFAR)—the official journal of the American Rhinologic Society (ARS) and the American Academy of Otolaryngic Allergy (AAOA)—found the relief from chronic nasal congestion can be life changing. Eighty percent of participants enjoyed a clinically relevant improvement. Doctor’s Opinion “We were excited to see measurable positive changes in both objective nasal airflow as well as patient-reported symptom scores and quality of life,” said Dr. Rodney Schlosser, an internationally known sinus specialist and one of the lead researchers on the study. “Our initial results demonstrate that SinuSonic is a safe and effective treatment alternative to conventional pharmacologic and surgical treatment for these patients.” Learn More To see the device in action or purchase online, go to www. SinuSonic.com.

These first paragraphs are reprinted without permission from Dusty 'Meyer' Schmitt, who is an assistant preschool teacher in Charles, Iowa. Maybe she won’t mind. “While crossing the highway today and having a car blow right past me it made me think maybe people just don't know what the proper etiquette is for passing a horse. Here is my PSA..... you are passing an animal! While I like to believe I am in full control of this animal. At the end of the day she is 1000lbs and fully capable of spooking or jumping at any time. You should treat passing a horse just as you would passing a deer. Treat it like you don't know what direction they are going, because you don't. If a deer can total out a car imagine what a horse would do. You could likely kill me, my horse, and yourself. So as kindly as I can possibly say it slow down! If you have a teen driver please inform them.” The reason that Dusty’s story hit home with me is that I know from my own mother’s experience that Dusty’s experience could have been so much worse. Our mother was nearly killed in a horseback riding accident when she was in college. Two cars passed her and her horse at the same time, going opposite directions. Basically all of them were in the same place at the same time. The accident killed the horse, while the cars swerved up opposite embankments, both cars were totaled and smashed and Mom’s lower leg was smashed. Her doctor told her that if she hadn’t been wearing riding boots, her leg would have been ripped off. The doctors performed miracles on Mom's leg. They opened it up and using tweezers they picked tiny pieces of shin bone out of her leg. They replaced them with a complete piece of bone that they cut out of her hip. She had to stay in the hospital for six months and at home for another two years. She was off of her feet for so long that she had to get physical therapy and eventually she learned to walk again, but was it all worth it? I think not. I don’t know how fast those cars were going but it seems like at least one of those drivers could have figured out that he or she was headed for trouble. My mother had spent two and one half years in college to become a teacher. After her accident she would have had to begin all over again and she told me that wasn’t possible. I never knew why it wasn’t possible, but I knew that my Mom lost her dream because a couple of drivers in their cars couldn’t slow down a bit. This happened on Massachusetts Boulevard in La Mesa when it was a dirt road. Mom and Dad had met when they both attended San Diego State and at some point Dad became a San Diego Policeman. One of the stories that was passed down is that Dad was the youngest officer ever accepted into the police department. I have no idea if this is true or not, however, through the years, I’ve met a lot of people who knew and admired both my Mom and my Dad so I choose to believe that story until I’m told otherwise. I’m not sure what year that took place; however, once Mom could walk, she and Dad got married. She was no longer in college, World War II came into their lives, Dad went from being a San Diego Policeman to entering the United States ArmyAir Force and they travelled. Once the war was over, Dad was once again a policeman and he was a US Air Force reservist. Once the Korean War broke out my Dad was called back from the reserves. Mom expected to be an officer’s wife since Dad was a Captain, but once again her plans were sucked out from under her. During Mom and Dad’s marriage they had three children. I’m in the middle. On the night that my younger brother was born, Dad, who was commander of a B-29 bomber died when his airplane crashed during a typhoon. I’m not sure how my mother survived those first months and years after Dad died. I was not quite two and it wasn’t the sort of conversation we had in my family. What my aunt did tell me after my Mom died was that instead of doing everything they could to help my mother during her initial period of grief, my Mom’s parents tried to take my older sister and I away from her. They insisted that she couldn’t care for us along with a newborn baby. Grandma was a very domineering woman and this was just one way that she showed it. So Mom dealt with her new widowhood, her newborn son, her two young daughters and her Mother’s interference in her life. My Mother was a very kind woman. She was often full of joy. She taught her three children to be kind and yet her own mother was horribly critical of her. I remember when I would go to Grandma’s house to do her heavy housework. I was divorcing my first husband and wanted to tell Grandma. Mom kept giving me reasons for not telling her, so finally I said “Then you tell her!” One evening after that my mom called me in tears. She asked if she was a horrible mother. I asked where that thought came from? When she told her mother about my divorce, her mother said she must have been a horrible mother because two out of her three children got divorced. It was true. However, I reminded Mom that two of her children owned their own homes; the third child owned two homes and a good sized sailboat, two of her children had college degrees and one was a minister. Need I go on? By the way, I was one that got divorced and I told my Mom it was because I didn’t listen to her advice when I wanted to get married. And what was that really good advice? When you need to make an important decision, fold a piece of paper in half lengthwise. Mark one half PROS and the other half CONS. Instead you could write WHAT WORKS FOR ME and on the other half WHAT DOESN’T WORK FOR ME. Maybe you like that better. Be truthful. The length of each column isn’t important. The importance of each item or all of the items together in a column is what counts the most. When I decided to divorce my first husband, the item that practically shouted out to me was family. He didn’t want to spend any time with his family or with my family. I loved being with my family All the way out to distant cousins we saw one another at least once or twice each year and that was important to me. If I stayed with him, I would have had to cut myself off from my family for a lifetime. I wasn’t going to do that and I’m glad I didn’t. These are my thoughts.

Manage Medical Conditions During COVID-19 (Family Features) Diabetes and heart disease are two pre-existing medical conditions that researchers believe contribute to elevated risk of severe complications from COVID-19. In fact, patients with two or more pre-existing conditions have 4.5 times greater risk of needing treatment at a hospital if they contract COVID-19, according to estimates by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. How Diabetes Affects Heart Health If you have diabetes, your body either makes too much or not enough insulin, which results in too much glucose in your bloodstream. Over time, high blood glucose levels can increase damage to your organs, including your heart, brain and kidneys. Diabetes is associated with a buildup of plaque that can clog arteries, so the longer you live with type 2 diabetes, the higher your cardiovascular risk. At least one-third of people with heart failure have diabetes, and heart disease is the leading cause of death and a major cause of heart attacks, heart failure, strokes and disability for people living with type 2 diabetes. Managing high blood pressure and high cholesterol, which are common in people with type 2 diabetes, along with keeping blood glucose levels in check, supports heart health and may also prevent or slow down progression of chronic kidney disease - another condition that heightens the risk of severe COVID-19 complications. COVID-19 Precautions Considering that people with conditions like diabetes and heart disease are at higher risk for severe illness from COVID-19, it's especially important to keep health-related numbers in healthy ranges and manage these conditions, in addition to taking precautions against contracting the virus. Consider these tips from the American Heart Association and American Diabetes Association: * If you've delayed or postponed medical appointments due to COVID-19, it's vital to resume them, either in person or through virtual options. * Continue to take medication as prescribed. If you've lost your medical insurance or can't afford it, talk to your doctor or pharmacist about available resources. Stopping your medication without talking to your health care provider could lead to serious illness or death. * Know your numbers. If you have diabetes, check blood glucose levels frequently and make necessary adjustments to insulin and diet to keep levels under control. If you have high blood pressure, make sure to monitor that number regularly from home. * Manage stress, which can also impact blood glucose and blood pressure levels. In addition to maintaining your social support network (even if it's through social distancing), exercise, adequate sleep and meditation can help improve your mental health. * If you or someone around you has symptoms of heart attack or stroke, remember to call 9-1-1 as the hospital is still the safest place to go in a medical emergency. * If you have diabetes, talk with your doctor about ways to reduce your risk of heart attack, heart failure, stroke and COVID-19. Visit KnowDiabetesbyHeart.org for resources like diabetes-friendly recipes, success stories and a list of questions to ask your doctor. *** The essence of philosophy is that a man should so live that his happiness shall depend as little as possible on external things. — Epictetus ***

discolored or dried. Select ears that are well-covered with plump, not-too-mature kernels. Avoid ears with undeveloped kernels, ears with very large kernels and dark-yellow kernels, because they can be tough and not very sweet. continued on page 6

Dough Box

Your great-grandmother may have used this antique box in her kitchen, but not many of us use it today since there are newer, faster ways to get the same result. The pine box is 27 inches high by 36 inches wide and 21 inches deep. It has dovetailed sides and tapered legs. The removable top is made of two boards. Give up? It is a dough box used for proofing bread dough. The box was filled with flour, then water was added and the mixture was kneaded. More ingredients were added, including yeast, and more kneading. Then a rest, letting the dough rise, punching it down, kneading it again, reshaping and letting it rest. This was done several

times. When the dough felt right, the box was covered and moved to a warm place where the dough could "proof." That is what the final rise is called. It was shaped again, put in the oven and baked. Families ate a lot of bread, and most housewives made bread at least once a week. The finished bread was taken from the oven to rest on the lid of the dough box, then cut and served. And the lid had another use. It kept the mice

Both have "birth certificates," "adoption papers" and their original clothes. Would you let me know what they are worth? A: Cabbage Patch dolls were first made in 1977 by a 21-yearold art student named Xavier Roberts of Helen, Georgia. He called them "Little People Originals" and sold them at craft shows across the South. In 1982, toy manufacturer Coleco Industries became the licensed manufacturer, and the name was changed to Cabbage Patch Kids. The fad had faded by about 1986. In 1987, Coleco introduced a "talking" Cabbage Patch Kid doll as a last-ditch effort to renew interest, but the company went bankrupt in the late 1980s.

Cabbage Patch Kids dolls sell in online shops from $10 to about $25. Dolls in original packaging with their adoption papers sell for about $50. Some very rare dolls sell for more. *** CURRENT PRICES Spatterware pitcher, American eagle, shield, arrows, blue, footed, c. 1850, 11 1/2 inches, $110.

getting their pent-up feelings and energy out and for priming their brain to learn. Time after school for high-intensity running around outside or for dancing wildly to an exercise video on YouTube can help your child release some stress. Looking for the silver linings Children of all ages around the world are experiencing the stresses and uncertainties of the pandemic. And we as their parents are feeling the pain of every virtual birthday party, missed playdate and lonely day of less to do. In the midst of this stress and sadness, it’s worth remembering that young humans are supremely adaptive: they are creatures of change and creativity and make-do-withwhat-you-have. In this moment many kids are discovering treasure that will last their whole lives. They’re learning that they have reservoirs of resilience, siblings they love, abilities to learn new things they never thought they could learn. One teen starts a journal. Another child creates a basket of goodies for the delivery people. A middle schooler gets to spend some quality time with his typically overworked father. Children are adapting to the world as it is, not as we have hoped it would be for them. And in this, they are better suited to the moment than we are. So as you move into this fall with all of its unknowns, notice the small wins your child is no doubt experiencing and celebrate them. Because those will be the learning moments that stick.

strengths of online learning can help your student make the most of this atypical school year. While online tools like webinars, instructional videos and activities may not provide the same type of interaction

as an in-person classroom experience, they do have some clear advantages: such tools appeal to digital natives, can be tailored to individual needs, offer opportunities for self pacing and can be revisited again and again

as needed. 3. Get equipped: Be sure your student is equipped with a calculator well-suited to the curriculum. The affordable scientific calculators and graphing calculators available from Casio feature hundreds of functions, as well as high-definition, three dimensional displays, helping students visualize mathematical concepts for a better grasp of the material. Tutorials offering in-depth instructions for using different calculator features are available online, and can expand your child’s capabilities. Remote and hybrid learning come with different challenges than regular classroom learning, especially when it comes to math class. However, new tools can help make this school year a success.

California Commentary

Dumpster Fires And Profanity In State Capitol The California Legislature either didn’t read or ignored my column from last week on the toxic effects of one-party rule because, shortly thereafter, it held what can only be described as a dumpster fire of a last day of session. Then again, that would be an insult to dumpster fires. Or, as Sen. Melissa Melendez, R-Murrieta, called it over a hot mic, “bull—.” Here’s the recap. Last week, a Republican state senator tested positive for COVID-19. He, and any of his Senate colleagues who interacted with him, were banished from the Capitol for 14 days. That happened to be most of the Senate Republican Caucus, and even if they subsequently tested negative, they still weren’t allowed to return to work. Instead, Senate Republicans were forced to telecommute and vote remotely even though the Office of Legislative Counsel said it is likely illegal. Finding that dealing with their Republican colleagues was slowing the rush of bills passed under the cover of darkness on the last day of session, Democrats in the state’s greatest deliberative body moved to limit debate on new legislation. That was the final straw for Republicans who had not only been locked out of the building but now believed they were being locked out of the process. They rebelled, and Melendez uttered her aforementioned barnyard expletive that encapsulated perfectly the day’s events. Senate President Pro Tem Toni Atkins and Senate Republican Leader Shannon Grove eventually restored order and the Senate resumed its work, but the lost time meant some of the biggest bills of the session failed to cross the finish line by the stroke of midnight. Some in the Senate were furious at the Assembly after a police reform bill never came up for a vote and a housing bill was passed at three minutes to midnight, too late for the Senate concurrence vote needed to send it to the governor’s desk.

by Jon Coupal

Democrats are accusing Republicans of throwing a “temper tantrum” and filibustering by other means, but Democrats in the state Legislature have no one to blame but themselves. They control the process. There is no reason why the most important issues of the year need to be left to the closing hours of the session. The last vote doesn’t need to be taken at 11:59 p.m. as it did in the Senate on Monday night. Sure, COVID-19 curtailed the session, but other states have part-time legislatures that still meet fewer days than ours did this year and somehow manage to get the important stuff done. Although the legislative calendar has specific deadlines for bills to be introduced and to pass in their house of origin, the Legislature gets around these procedural rules with tricks and pretenses. One of these is the so-called gut-and-amend, which involves taking an existing bill, gutting it of all its language, and amending it into an entirely new piece of legislation. Another trick is performed by passing stacks of blank bills with no language in them at all, except for a single line of placeholder text. After the budget is negotiated in secret by the governor and legislative leaders, the agreedupon provisions become “amendments” to the blank bills. These are called “trailer bills.” There are no hearings in policy committees and no opportunity for amendments or debate. There’s simply an up-or-down vote on each of them and they go to the governor’s desk. This opaque process rewards holding back important, and controversial, legislation until the last minute. Why argue when you can simply bypass the process in the waning days of the session? California desperately needs legislative reforms that enhance transparency and that permits both citizens and legislators in the minority party meaningful participation. *** Jon Coupal is the president of the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association.

Mine tailings like this could sequester lots of atmospheric carbon dioxide. Credit: wild trees, flickrCC. Dear EarthTalk: Is it true that wastes left over from mining operations could be used to absorb carbon dioxide and help solve the climate crisis? -- D. Moore, Richmond, VA Yes, mining wastes (“tailings”) could indeed be part of the solution to our climate woes. Researchers have shown that alkaline wastes— such as the slurries (semi-liquid mixtures), gravel and other industrial detritus that accumulate during and after mining projects—could be “reacted” with airborne carbon dioxide (CO2), which would not only sequester some of this most common of greenhouse gases but also neutralize the otherwise hazardous alkalinity of the waste itself. This is good news because tailings in and of themselves can be a major environmental nuisance and health threat for those living nearby. Since most of this mining waste comes in slurry form means it often ends up in or near water, which causes contamination issues and destroys aquatic life. And because tailings can be transported by wind and/or water, they can easily expand their realm of contamination, spreading into nearby waterways and destroying larger and larger swaths of wildlife habitat. If we can turn our mine tailings into carbon sinks (absorbers) on a large scale, it’s a win-win. Researchers at Canada’s University of Alberta seem to think so: Their March 2019 study found that the minerals in tailings naturally capture atmospheric CO2 if exposed to them, and the findings are backed up by similar research elsewhere. Harnessing this carbon sequestration (capturing) tool on a global scale would do wonders for our collective carbon footprint. Meanwhile, an ongoing research project at another Canadian college, the University of British Columbia (UBC), is looking into how to facilitate so-called “direct capture” of atmospheric CO2 into mine tailings with the goal of at least offsetting the greenhouse gases generated as a result of the extraction work. In response to this challenge, UBC is identifying common traits among different types of mine tailings that excel at carbon sequestration in hopes of developing a set of protocols that mining operations anywhere in the world can call upon to reduce their impact and suck up at least the emissions their projects create. “Incorporation of carbon sequestration activities into mine operations...will generate economic, corporate and societal advantages to mines and affiliated industries, including co-benefits such as tailings stabilization, dust mitigation and toxic metal immobilization,” they conclude. “Carrying this out on a global scale could trap between 310 million to 4 billion tons of carbon dioxide annually,” Robert F. Service reports in Nature. “That could provide the world with a much-needed means of lowering atmospheric carbon dioxide.” It’s much easier said than done, and governments will need to offer incentives on a massive scale needed to make a dent in atmospheric carbon, Service says, adding: “And engineers will need to figure out how to harness the wastes while preventing the release of heavy metals and radioactivity locked in the material.” CONTACTS: “CO2 Sequestration of Mine Tailings,” brimm.ubc.ca/slider/ co2-sequestration-of-mine-tailings/; “Revaluing mine waste rock for carbon capture and storage, tandfonline.com/doi/pdf/10.1080/17480930902843102; “Scientists identify new minerals for carbon capture,” ualberta.ca/science/ news/2018/december/carbon-sequestration-new-minerals.html.

continued from page 3 Lunchtime trading is off the table If students eat lunch at school, there will be new rules about how to behave. Whether kids are eating outside or at their desks, it’s a safe bet that passing choice snacks will be forbidden. Perhaps now more than ever it’s worth getting your child to help plan some lunches or snacks that give them a boost of happiness and health during their school day. Peer pressure takes on new risks You probably understand many of the ways that peer pressure influences your youngster. But now there’s a complex new set of health guidelines that your child may be looking to their peers as role models for. What will your child do if the cool kids keep taking off their mask and hanging out in not-socially distant groups after school? It’s worth it to have conversations in advance because going against the grain will take every bit of your child’s willpower. Just as it’s recommended to ask your child, what would you do if somebody offered you a vape at school or the answer sheet to that really hard math test, it’s worth asking “What would you do if… a friend hugged you, a group of friends all “decided” to take off their masks, shared food, planned a party?” Your child probably won’t enjoy these conversations but you will be helping them develop one of the most precious resources for this age: forethought. Thinking through different scenarios gives them a chance to discuss the issues with you and find the right words in advance. Looking for the silver linings Children of all ages around the world are experiencing the stresses and uncertainties of the pandemic. And we as their parents are feeling the pain of every virtual birthday party, missed playdate and lonely day of less to do. In the midst of this stress and sadness, it’s worth remembering that young humans are supremely adaptive: they are creatures of change and creativity and make-do-withwhat-you-have. In this moment many kids are discovering treasure that will last their whole lives. They’re learning that they have reservoirs of resilience, siblings they love, abilities to learn new things they never thought they could learn. One teen starts a journal. Another child creates a basket of goodies for the delivery people. A middle schooler gets to spend some quality time with his typically overworked father. Children are adapting to the world as it is, not as we have hoped it would be for them. And in this, they are better suited to the moment than we are. So as you move into this fall with all of its unknowns, notice the small wins your child is no doubt experiencing and celebrate them. Because those will be the learning moments that stick.

5 Tips for Creating a Low-Maintenance Home

(Family Features) Because most people are spending more time at home than usual, ensuring your living spaces are clean and uncluttered can make being home more comfortable and enjoyable. However, not everyone has the time, or desire, to devote to constant maintenance. A shift toward less work around the house just takes some prep work and smart tools. Organize and declutter. Working your way around stacks of things you don't use frequently, or need at all, can make it difficult to keep your home tidy. Cut back on the clutter by sorting items into categories such as things you use often, those you rarely use and things you don't need any longer. Donate what you don't need then work on organizing the rest. Invest in drawers, shelves and storage bins to ensure everything has a place, and only leave out the items you use frequently.

Automate your cleaning. You can simplify your chores by putting technology to work for you. One example is an all-in-one robotic vacuum cleaner and floor mop that keep floors clean so you don't have to think about it, such as the Deebot T5 from Ecovacs. Its patented OZMO Mopping System allows it to vacuum and mop simultaneously, removing up to 99% of bacteria without any harsh chemicals. It smartly maps your home with laser technology, and the automatic carpet detection feature avoids carpet when mopping to keep it from getting wet. You can even schedule cleanings from your phone. Manage paper. It can be easy to allow mail, magazines and other paper to pile up. To help manage the influx, create an "inbox" in a convenient location and put mail and paperwork there all week. Designate one day each week to sort, take action, shred and dispose of mail

and other paper you've collected. Create a labeling system. The hassle of finding and remembering where you put extra linens, wading through a cluttered spice rack or locating the hammer can be unnecessary stressors. Consider investing in a label maker to help make it easier to keep organized and find the things you're looking for when you need them. Use time wisely. Devoting a small amount of time to daily maintenance is key. If a task takes just a few minutes to do - like scheduling your robot vacuum to clean or putting dishes in the dishwasher - do it as needed. Then, every day, spend 10-15 minutes tidying up and putting things away so they don't pile up and lead to more time-consuming chores. A low-maintenance home can free your time for more living. Find more ideas for less maintenance at ecovacs.com.

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Cupid is strong in the Aries aspect this week, with the cherub opening romantic possibilities for single Lambs, and strengthening ties 'twixt loving pairs already in a caring relationship. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Your dramatic flair might make things more interesting as you recount an event to your colleagues. But be careful not to exaggerate reality to the point that facts and fancy combine to form fiction. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You love to talk, and this week you should get lots of chances to share your thoughts with people who will not only pay attention to what you have to say, but will want to hear more. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) The pattern of recent changes could begin to shift from mostly workplace-related events to more personal matters. Continue to keep an open mind as you prepare to deal with them. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Reward yourself for what's sure to be a dynamic week with a getaway to someplace wonderful, hopefully with a wonderful someone. You'll return refreshed and ready for what's ahead. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) You might want to suggest resolving an old disagreement before it can affect a matter expected to come up for discussion. It's always best to start with a clean slate. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) The week favors

combining dollops of creativity and practicality to work out both professional and personal problems. A longtime friend could have something of note to suggest. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Some surprising facts could come to light if you decide to probe deeper into an "opportunity" than you might usually do. What you'll learn could determine what you'll earn. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Someone close to you might seek your counsel. Hear him/her out, but hold the line at giving actual advice until you get credible answers to all your questions. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) What seems to be an overwhelming workplace project can be dealt with quite well if you handle one category at a time. Things will soon begin to fall into place. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) A personal matter might need more of your time than you had expected. Try to prioritize between your many outside commitments and your domestic responsibilities. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) A developing situation still needs more time to grow, and more time to study before you can plunge in and make some attention-getting waves. Patience is best for wise Pisceans. BORN THIS WEEK: You have a gift for organization that would make you a fine archivist. (Are you listening out there, Library of Congress?)
