The plan to start up “inclassroom” learning scheduled for September 28 may be put on hold depending on the Covid-19 case count in San Diego County as of Tuesday (9/22). If, as is expected, the percentage of positive cases is not below the threshold of 7% of total population, then the county will be elevated into a tier-1 (Purple) status and businesses will have to adjust and schools that have not opened will not be allowed to. Which would mean a continuation of distance leaning for the elementary district.

YEARS

After numerous reschedulings of their annual picnic and a couple of brain storming sessions the Julian Chamber of Commerce and Merchant’s Association decided to announce the yearly community business awards in the spirit of the pandemic — on-line. On Tuesday (9/15) Chamber Chairman, Michael Hart and Treasurer, Robin Boland recorded a video announcing all of the winners, posted to facebook<https://photos.app. goo.gl/r8sUmU45RSaVp8We9>.

The camus is cleaned and ready to accept students - if they are able to. Student will be screened when they arrive at school and parents are encouraged to monitor them at home. The drop-off for students will be specific to the campus they attend. With the elementary school wanting parents to use only the elementary school paring area to enter - loop around and drop off and exit through the same driveway. For the Jr. High, enter at the regular entrance - proceed down to the main campus where you will turn around and drop students off - then exit the same way. This means two-way traffic with possible delays as people navigate around each other and school busses. The teachers, students and administration are all “hopeful” that the plans that are in place will be sufficient for bring a sense of normalcy back to everyone and that the looming restrictions will not actually go into place. Unfortunately, for us in the back county, it is not in our control. Even though Julian and the surrounding commuities have been fairly stable in the number of casses reported over the past six weeks. The county wide

Parents will have to either drop students off at the elementary or Jr. High School if they are not on the reduced bus routes. Last Monday evenings “zoom” meeting with JUESD administration was attended by 100 interested computers, more may have wanted to be part of the information session, but restrictions of technology would not allow it.

“Little Free Pantry’ Adds Wynola Location

Keith Krawiec, Tracy Turner and Nancy Jean at Wynola Junction Antiques & Collectibles showing off the NEW Little Free Panty location. On Sunday, September 13, 2020, Wynola’s Little Free Pantry, sister of Julian’s Little Free Pantry, opened in Wynola. Driving this effort were community members Nancy Jean, Keith Krawiec and Lisa Patterson, (who supplied the pantry box and its first large donation of food and hygiene items) Tracy Turner, owner of Wynola Junction Antiques & Collectibles, graciously offered a space on her property located at 4326 Highway 78, in Wynola (3 miles west of downtown Julian). Wynola’s Little Free Pantry was opened to help those living in Wynola and the surrounding areas. The mini pantry movement encourages neighborhood involvement in food insecurity. It helps neighbors feed neighbors, nourishing neighborhoods. While the Little Free Pantry is not intended to be a food distribution center, it is meant to help bridge the gap where small amounts of food and hygiene items can be found. Through the kind donations of the community, we are able to fill the pantry with non-perishable food and hygiene items in their unopened containers and within reasonable sell by/expired by dates. No clothes, shoes or household items are accepted and please do not leave those items at the pantry. You may bring items to Julian Pathways Op Shop on their donation days. They are located in Julian at 1459 Hollow Glen Road. According to a national survey in late April, it was found that more than 17% of mothers reported their children under 12 were not getting enough to eat because the family couldn’t afford food – a more than 400% increase from when the government last measured hunger in 2018. We hope to be small part of the solution in the Wynola area. Wynola’s Little Free Pantry has its own Facebook Group where you can find our pantry “wish list”, easy low cost recipes, nutrition information and notices of food distributions in the area. We also encourage you to share on the group’s page in addition to spreading the news of the pantry to people who do not have access to the internet and to others who would benefit. Like its big sister in Julian, Wynola’s Little Free Pantry is not just for folks in need. It is there for the community. The slogan “Take What You Need … Leave What You Can” says it all. If you are unable to get to the grocery stores in Ramona or if you find yourself in need of something to make a meal at the last minute and the stores in town are closed, whatever the reason, the pantry is there for everyone and is available 24 hours 7 days a week. Questions regarding the pantry, food and hygiene distributions and any related information can be posted on the group’s page. Welcome and thank you Julian, Wynola and all surrounding areas, for your support.

One of the points that Superintendant Brian Duffy stressed in Mondays zoom-in was that even if the two campus’ open “distance learning would not be going away.” Some parents have expressed their reservations about sending their students back to school and the State has mandated that all schools provide the alternative learning option. The precautions being taken for the elementary and Jr. High include regular testing for staff. Should a positive case be found on either campus that could put every one back into distance learning once again for a minimum of two weeks.. The district has installed new HEPA air filtration for the schools HVAC system as has ordered air filtration for each classroom. Window will be open when feasible to increase “fresh-air” flow through out the schools, thereby minimizing the breathing of only filtered air.

All quiet on the Jr. High campus until the green light from the County.

Julian Chamber Welcomes Fall!

numbers are what the State will base its assesment on. Which will be released on Tuesday (9/22). Then we will know if all the plans and preparation that has been made is going to lead to back-to-school on Monday the 28th or if it was practice for a reopening at a future date, to be determined, once the numbers improve throughout the county. There is an outside chance that the district can apply for waiver through the County Office of education. How soon that would be acted on and implemented is any ones guess at this time. But it is another possibility. Bottom line - nothing is simple when it comes to public health.

First Day of Fall September 22nd. Let the turning of the leaves begin.

OPEN Thurs-Monday 11 am - 5pm

Dear beloved community of Julian, Several times a year, for many years, I have stood in front of my physician peers and taken the following oath: I pledge to: Provide compassionate, quality care to my patients: Partner with them to promote health: Display integrity and professionalism throughout my career: Advance the philosophy, practice and science of osteopathic medicine; Continue lifelong learning; Support my profession with loyalty in action, word and deed; and Live each day as an example of what an osteopathic physician should be. Sometimes, there comes a time in life to choose what he or she is principled in. This time has come for me. I choose to continue to see patients and help them to the best of my ability while continuing to abide by this oath. Perhaps my medical practice style, which upholds the values of the above oath, is antiquated and impractical (as recently relayed to me) akin to apothecary, yet I believe it to be simultaneously ideological and altruistic. Lord knows I am no haberdasher seeking a ha’penny. In short, I’m a dreamer. Those dreams had been previously realized but, alas and attributable to this recent miasma, are no more… and becoming a yeoman doctor is not within the cards, unless and until Fortunatus’ purse we acquire. Along with every carefully weighed choice in life, there come the consequences thereof. Optimistically, I embrace this change to effect opportunity for growth and development. However, that ideal does not assuage the loss to the community or to Borrego Health. In that regard, I am taking action to continue limited patient care for those eligible aging, elderly, or sick patients in need. I have been graciously accepted to practice medicine within my long-time mentor’s organization, Housecall Doctors Medical Group. Most importantly, I will be able to continue practicing while upholding the ideals of my profession. I will be able to provide continuity of care to some of you who need it. Perhaps long-term we will use this new position as a loom to weave a fabric of influence in medical practice in Julian and the surrounding areas. That being said, the surprise of my departure notwithstanding, I will miss you. I still care for you. I have had a wonderful relationship, mutually beneficial and respectful, based on trust, with most of you. But even if you did not like or agree with me, or disparaged me, I still care about you – about the people of Julian. Time holds the scale of judgement; it is my unfeigned yearning, echoed, that, in the long run, as I cut my stick, over time, this move will tip the scale to… good. Sincerely, Blake A. Wylie, D.O.

The Newest Memorial On The National Mall

Opinion by David Von Drehle(Washington Post)

Building a monument in Washington is a process of many years — even decades. No one can predict at the beginning of the undertaking exactly when it might come to fruition. Could anyone have imagined in 1945 that nearly half a century would elapse before a memorial to the men and women who fought and died during World War II would be dedicated by a grateful — if rather tardy — nation? So it is an entirely unplanned coincidence that the memorial to Dwight David Eisenhower, 34th president of the United States, has been completed and dedicated during the frenzied final weeks of the 2020 campaign. On Friday the public was welcomed into the four-acre park across Independence Avenue SW from the popular Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum. Across the long facade of the Education Department headquarters now hangs a vast tapestry of stainless steel depicting a stylized sketch of the Normandy beach at Pointe du Hoc. Two bronze tableaux feature Eisenhower in action — as general and as president. The entire conception originated in the mind of architect Frank Gehry. Eisenhower’s presidency is associated in the contemporary mind with a placid and prosperous America at peace, when dads were wise and moms vacuumed in high heels. When our current president promised to Make America Great Again, it was this cartoon of the 1950s that many people imagined he would restore. Like all Utopias, this was an illusion. The Eisenhower years, from 1953 to 1961, were a period of enormous upheaval and bitter

A transparent stainless-steel woven tapestry frames the entire memorial within its urban context and portrays an abstract artistic depiction of the cliffs of the Normandy coastline in peacetime to represent the peace Eisenhower won as Supreme Commander and then preserved as Commander in Chief. division. African Americans were demanding their rightful seats on buses and places in classrooms. Angry crowds confronted National Guardsmen in the streets of American cities, while in the halls of Congress, partisans did battle in claustrophobic hearing rooms over conspiracies — some real, some invented. Soviet advances in rocketry and high tech convinced many of America’s most savvy analysts that the nation’s global leadership was quickly passing. It was a time of bitterness, resentment and mutual suspicion; a time of ruined reputations and casual slurs. That those years would mellow in the memory of future generations into the gauzy happiness we call “the Fifties” — all saddle shoes and sock hops, Perry Como and Howdy Doody — would have amazed those who actually lived through the Eisenhower administration. But forgetting is a way of healing. More precisely, selective remembering is a way of healing. What much of America has chosen to remember — the seeming steadiness, the sense of order — stems from the great dignity of Eisenhower himself. He was the calm during those stormy

Site Relevance to Eisenhower The site for the national memorial to Eisenhower bears a close and unique relationship to his life-long public service. Eisenhower’s legacy has specific thematic relationships with federal entities adjoining the Maryland Avenue site. Together these buildings demonstrate Eisenhower’s broad legacy of improved national infrastructure, the foundation upon which he worked to build “a peace with justice in a world where moral law prevails.” Deptartment of Education Eisenhower was responsible for the first direct federal aid to education, believing that its true purpose is “to prepare young men and women for effective citizenship in a free form of government.” Through the National Defense Education Act he initiated federal student grant/loan programs, graduate fellowships, and grants to improve public school instruction in mathematics, science, and modern languages. Deptartment of Health and Human Services

years, hardly perfect, yet imperturbable. As the storms receded, they left the residue of his steadiness. Eisenhower was steady because he was ready; his life was one long study in the art and science of leadership. Raised by devout parents in a central Kansas town whose glory days were already in the past, Eisenhower, commonly known as Ike, seized an appointment to the U.S. Military Academy as his ticket to the world. But what shone at West Point was his level head and emotional maturity. He rose through the ranks of the Army not as a fighter, but as a planner, a thinker and an organizer. He was competent rather than combative. One famous general after another latched onto Eisenhower as a key aide: Fox Conner, John J. Pershing, Douglas MacArthur, George C. Marshall. Each partnership was a new lesson in right and wrong ways to command. He was patient. At 50 years old, he finally made the rank of colonel; at 53, and three quick promotions later, Gen. Eisenhower was named supreme commander of Allied forces in Europe. Yet he remained an eager student, learning not from mentors now but from hard experience. He bore setbacks with equanimity and leaped at opportunities as he spotted them. He honed a gift for managing strong and competing personalities; his underlings included such egomaniacs as George S. Patton and Bernard Law Montgomery; his constituents included such larger-than-life characters as Franklin D. Roosevelt, Winston Churchill and Charles de Gaulle. Yet, though he could efface his own ego when necessary, he never dodged responsibility. Indeed, when he launched the invasion of Europe on June 6, 1944, Eisenhower’s preparations included a handwritten statement to be released if the mission failed. “If any blame or fault attaches to the attempt, it is mine alone,” he wrote. As president, Eisenhower had ample opportunity to practice all he had learned. He stumbled enough that his critics called him stupid, yet his warnings about the Washington swamp (he called it the “militaryindustrial complex”) were visionary enough to predate Trumpism by more than half a century. The new monument invites us to think of Eisenhower in the context of our own turbulent times. And thinking of our leaders is always, ultimately, a way of looking at ourselves. What in us has called forth such a different leader? Is it something we’d want the future to remember?

As President, Eisenhower signed legislation creating the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare (predecessor to HHS), addressing his belief that “a sound nation is built of individuals sound in body and mind and spirit.” He appointed Mrs. Oveta Culpa Hobby as its first Secretary. She led the effort to pass Eisenhower’s Social Security legislation in 1954, the largest single expansion of Social Security. National Air and Space Museum Eisenhower led the effort to create the U.S. Air Force while Chief of Staff of the Army, and he strongly supported aircraft development. As President, he signed legislation and supported development of the Air Force Academy. He was the driving force in creating the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, “a new space agency under civilian authority.” He created a top-secret military aerospace reconnaissance program to ensure no future president would face another Pearl Harbor. Federal Aviation Administration Along with bolstering infrastructure on land and providing access to the seaways of the world with the Interstate Highway System and St. Lawrence Seaway, President Eisenhower also addressed infrastructure issues in air and space. Eisenhower actively promoted airport development and regulation of air travel with the establishment of the Federal Aviation Administration, which fostered “greater safety in air travel.” He had a personal hand in selecting the site of Washington Dulles International Airport, the first U.S. international airport. U.S. Capitol Eisenhower deeply respected the power, authority and responsibility of Congress, which he said alone “has the power of the purse.” He created and maintained close working relationships with the leadership of both parties, who in turn gave him the support needed to govern effectively.

Notes from Supervisor Dianne Jacob

Get ready: My heart goes out to those who lost their homes and other property in the recent Valley Fire. Just know that the county is doing all it can to help. At my request, the county has agreed to waive permit fees for those looking to rebuild houses and other structures that were damaged or destroyed in the disaster. The fire was a warning shot for what we may face in coming weeks. Early fall is when we typically have our biggest wildfires, like the deadly firestorms of 2003 and 2007. Making sure you’re prepared for a disaster has never been more important. I can’t say it enough: Put together a go-kit, download the SDEmergency app and sign up for reverse 911 notifications – known as AlertSanDiego -- at readysandiego.org. Helping our economy: My BOS colleagues recently joined me in approving $4.1 million in federal grants to 254 small businesses in my district. The list includes more than 80 restaurants and about 50 salons, barber shops and other personal grooming businesses. Many small businesses in East County continue to struggle as we all confront a public health crisis with no immediate end. These grants are another way the county can directly support neighborhood businesses that are the backbone of our economy. So many are in serious need, and these grants put a priority on those most impacted since the start of the pandemic. Helping our economy – and seniors: The county’s Great Plates initiative is now even greater. We recently expanded the food-delivery program to ensure that more seniors in need, along with the disabled, receive meals. We also moved to increase the number of participating restaurants. For more information, call county Aging & Independence Services at 800-339-4661. Have questions, suggestions or feedback about your county government? Call me at 619-531-5522 or email dianne.jacob@ sdcounty.ca.gov. Stay safe and healthy! Dianne Voice of America Eisenhower believed in freedom of information throughout the world to strengthen democracy nationally and internationally. He established the U.S. Information Agency in 1953 and moved the the Voice of America to its present location in 1954. Eisenhower was convinced that international understanding, “like domestic unity, depends, in large part, on the free, full flow of information and its balanced presentation.” View to the U.S. Capitol From Eisenhower Square, visitors will experience a dramatic view of the United States Capitol down Maryland Avenue.

Celebrate Halloween Safely And Help A Good Cause (Family Features) This Halloween, fewer families will be going door to door as the pandemic enters its predicted second wave. Seventythree percent of people do not anticipate taking their children trick-ortreating at all, according to a Harris Poll survey. However, Halloween is not canceled, and there are ways parents and kids can still celebrate safely while also giving back to a good cause. To promote social distancing, Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF is going completely virtual for the first time. As the longest running youth-led program in the United States, it has raised more than $180 million for kids in need since inception.

My Thoughts Tremors

by Kiki Skagen Munshi

Mental Health Issues We need a psychiatrist who treats chickens. Or maybe a psychologist, but someone. We have rattled our networks but Ira refused to do telephone counseling in spite of our friendship. He seemed to think he and the hen wouldn’t be on the same wavelength, let alone speak the same language. He also pointed out that he was a psychiatrist and not a psychologist. Okay, he may have a point or two. Others we contacted responded along similar lines. They, too, may have a point. Nevertheless, there is a teenage hen out there who needs help. The problem seems to be agoraphobia or fear of open spaces. This youngster will not—but NOT—go out of the chicken coop into the enclosed run, even when treats—like chicken scratch or glorious garbage—are scattered temptingly in front of her. It isn’t lack of ability to jump up the eight or so inches to the sill of the “door” that connects the indoor coop to the outside run. When pushed, our henlet hopped right up but after looking around wildly, immediately jumped down again into the safe shadow of being inside, then she shivered. This is a disturbed chicken if you ever saw one. Which you may not have, but that’s not our problem. There was no difference in our henlet’s childhood from her three sisters. As a three day old chick they were transported from Ramona to Julian and shoved, perhaps unceremoniously, under a hen who had been sitting on infertile eggs. After an initial moment of disbelief, the hen realized that she had succeeded in acquiring children and became a good Mommy for the next ten weeks. Perhaps it was the parting with the mother hen that traumatized our patient. They could commune through the wire separating the little chicks from the Big Chickens but that didn’t last long. The chicks on their part didn’t seem terribly interested and Mommy soon decided it was time to move on. The day came when the chicks had grown into almost-chickens, big enough not to need special food and all the extra work that went with keeping them separate. The initial move went well—one by one they were collared and elegantly tossed into their new home. The big hens didn’t pick on them, perhaps surprisingly. It did take three of the four a few days to be comfortable with going outside but now they run with a waggle and a waddle just like the (now only slightly) Bigger Chickens whenever called for treats. But not our patient. She stays inside and looks upset. Clearly it’s a complex, perhaps an inherited condition like chicken schizophrenia. Only a good chicken shrink would know. If you have dealt with one such we’d appreciate a referral.

Top Gifts to Show Appreciation for Teachers (StatePoint) When it comes to showing teachers appreciation for all that they do, a personal gift is always appreciated. However, sometimes what they really want is the proper tools to help them in the classroom. Teachers spent an average of $745 on supplies during the 20192020 school year, according to an AdoptaClassroom.org survey, much of which was out of their own pockets, and nearly half of all teachers said their spending has increased since distance learning began. So, if you are thinking about giving gifts to the teachers in your life, skip the apple and consider these useful items instead: 1. With a built-in learning system and a portable frame, Casio keyboards are a good choice for music educators. Some models continued on page 11

Yes, tremors. Not the movies, though they were quite entertaining and they gave new meaning to the term “worm sign”. No, I’m writing about Essential Tremors. I have Essential tremors. You that know me to see me already know this. My head has been shaking for over thirty-five years and my hands began shaking about seven years ago. This is an inherited disease; my mother had it and maybe my maternal grandmother had it, though she hid it well. I go to a Neurologist because tremors come from the brain. My Essential tremors look a bit like Parkinson’s disease, but they aren’t and they aren’t fatal. My tremors are extremely slow moving, so beyond the irritations they cause me, they will never be a huge problem for me. I will have my seventieth birthday in November and that’s why my slow moving tremors will never be a huge problem for me. Both Parkinson’s disease and Essential tremors are progressive disorders of the central nervous system. Parkinson’s causes nerve cell damage in the brain causing dopamine levels to drop, leading to the symptoms often beginning with a tremor in one hand. Other symptoms are slow movement, stiffness, shuffling when walking, stooped posture, soft or slurred speech and loss of balance. Eventually people experiencing Parkinson’s can hallucinate. Medications can help control the symptoms of Parkinson's, electrodes placed in the brain can help too for a period of time. However there is no cure. Essential tremors are different. Essential tremors can affect men and women of any age, although they are more common in older adults. Mostly tremors affect legs, arms, trunk or abdomen, and head. My biggest problem is with my fingers as I try to hold objects like pens or eating utensils. In some cases, the voice may shake when speaking. My appointment with my Neurologist this week showed that my voice is still okay and my arms don’t shake, yet. While there is no definitive cure for essential tremor, several treatments may help. Stress can cause tremors, so getting enough sleep is important. However, don’t over do it. I found myself over sleeping because in my sleep I didn’t have to deal with my inabilities. Now I’m meeting them face to face. Relaxing or meditating can also help to calm tremors. When your doctor prescribes medications make certain that they won’t increase your tremors. For instance, inhalers may increase tremors. A person with Essential tremors should avoid caffeine. I don’t have any problem avoiding caffeinated coffee and tea, but I sure do like to eat a chocolate candy or two after dinner. Some people take beta blockers to treat their high blood pressure. In some cases, they may work for tremors as well, by stabilizing the body. However, beta blockers can cause side effects such as lightheadedness and fatigue and should not be used by people with heart or respiratory problems. This is definitely an issue to discuss with your doctor. I’ve read of people using cosmetic procedures to help with essential tremors, but apparently getting rid of one problem can create a worse problem elsewhere. Focused high-intensity ultrasound uses magnetic resonance images (also known as MRI) to focus ultrasound waves that then destroy the damaged tissue in the thalamus that causes essential tremor. This may sound like a bizarre, complex treatment, but it is more simple than it appears, and is non-invasive. The patient can be awake throughout the entire procedure. That’s the easy part. The not so good part is something my Neurologist and I have discussed more than once. With this procedure, you get zapped one time only. There is no guarantee that you will get zapped in exactly the proper spot. It can never be done again, even if it doesn’t work and only two places in California will do it because you won’t find a doctor in San Diego who would even consider doing this procedure. Sometimes doctors prescribe tranquilizers for temporary relief of severe tremors, but I think just for a bit of relief. Surgery is something that I considered for a time. I know people who have Parkinson’s who have been helped with a stimulus type of surgery, and though this is different, it seemed worth considering until it didn’t. While it may sound extreme, there is a surgical option to treat essential tremor; deep brain stimulation (DBS) consists of surgically implanting electrical leads in the thalamus, which controls the muscles and is thought to be from where essential tremors originate. This surgery is for people who do not get better with other, more conventional medical therapies. Reasons I was interested in surgery are simple daily things that I can’t do any more. I can’t write a check. I can’t write a shopping list or a phone number. If I see an ad for a movie or a piece of music I may want, I can’t write it down. I can’t text message people. Some evenings I’m a danger to myself when I’m using a knife to make dinner. Reasons I decided not to get the surgery begin with my lack of core strength. Core strength is the strength we have in our hands, arms, feet, legs and bodies. Ten years ago I had a lot of work done in my mouth. My oral surgeon told me that I wasn’t allowed to shovel snow or do any other heavy work. I used to thrive on doing heavy work. Three years ago I crushed my shoulder and had it replaced. I was told basically to heal by sitting still for 3 months. Nearly two years ago I got a serious infection on the bottom of one of my toes. That’s right. I was told to keep it elevated for what became three months. All of these experiences put together mean that I lost my core strength and I don’t want another surgery to make my lack of core strength any worse. Since my Essential tremors are slow moving; I decided I will keep adjusting to them and be grateful for the assistance I get here at home. Why am I writing all of this? Many of us don’t realize that we are surrounded with people who

are living with progressive health problems that will never go away. A few years ago I counted the people that I know in the Julian area who have Parkinson’s disease and the number didn’t include those of us who have Essential tremors. At that time I personally knew one out of every two hundred people in Julian who had Parkinson’s disease. I’m sure more are here that I don’t know. This past week Ruth Bader Ginsburg died of cancer. Cancer is clearly not Parkinson’s disease; however, she fought at least four different cancers over a period of two decades. Look around you and appreciate the people who surround you. These are my thoughts.

How Americans View Recycling (NAPSI)—At the beginning of the coronavirus quarantines you likely heard about and even experienced shortages of popular paper products, such as toilet paper and paper towels. But did you know recycling can help with these shortages? If you’ve never thought about it, you aren’t alone. New research conducted by the Carton Council of North America reveals that most consumers fail to make the connection between recycling paper at home and providing feedstock for new paper products. Recycling actually plays an important role in fostering a circular economy as it provides materials that are needed to make new products and packaging. For example, food and beverage cartons, which are used to package products including milk, juice, soup and broth, when recycled, can go on to make new paper products such as toilet paper, paper towels and tissues. In fact, the federal government and states that issued “stay-at-home” orders largely decided recycling businesses were essential, reinforcing the importance of recycling. Keep Up Recycling The good news is people report they are keeping up their recycling during the pandemic. According to the same survey, almost a third of consumers report they’ve been recycling more during the pandemic and 56% have been recycling the same. While promising, especially as the industry works hard to maintain recycling programs when possible, the survey also revealed that consumers don’t understand the impact between recycling and the new products created. When asked how much impact recycling at home has on helping with paper shortages, 33% of consumers reported they thought recycling might have some impact on helping with the shortages, but they were not sure how much it really helped. While 18% felt ­recycling had no impact at all on ­alleviating ­shortages, 13% were unsure and had not thought about the connection. Expert Opinions “It’s great to see that people are either continuing to recycle at the same rate or recycling even more since spending increased time at home and generating more waste,” said Carla Fantoni, Vice President of Communications for the Carton Council of North America and for Tetra Pak Americas. “We encourage Americans to be even more diligent about recycling, recognizing the important role it plays in our supply chain and building of a circular economy.” The fortunate fact is food and beverage cartons, made mainly of paper, are a recyclable material that provides needed feedstock for paper mills to create new paper products.  “Food and beverage cartons contain high-quality fiber which we desire to help us keep up with demand for products like toilet paper, tissues, and paper towels,” explained Michele ­Bartolini, Senior Marketing Director for Sustana. “As the nation opens up, we will continue to need paper feedstock to p ­ roduce new paper materials. If cartons aren’t recycled and end up in a landfill, we are losing the opportunity to utilize that material.” Learn More For further facts, visit RecycleCartons.com.

Shop Smart This October To Benefit Breast Cancer Patients (StatePoint) It is not always easy to tell how your charitable dollars are going to be used, especially during National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Honored every October, this is a time of year when many companies use pink logos on product packaging to symbolize support for breast cancer-related charities. Unfortunately, these symbols are not always backed by a promise that proceeds will directly support research or those living with breast cancer. In the case of Susan G. Komen and its Live Pink program, the organization works closely with all its partners to ensure program details are transparent to consumers. And this year, 18 companies are donating a percentage of the proceeds from the sale of select products to Komen. As many consumers are doing much of their shopping online these days, Komen has created a site that makes it easy and safe to shop for a cause. Visit livepink.org to shop and learn more. “It just takes a moment to get involved and make a difference in the fight against breast cancer,” says Sarah Rosales, vice president of Corporate Partnerships, Susan G. Komen. “We’re honored to have so many partners giving consumers an opportunity to support breast cancer patients and fund lifesaving research.” Want to ensure you are making the biggest impact possible? Before making any purchase you assume benefits the fight against breast cancer, Susan G. Komen recommends asking the following questions: 1. Who is the program supporting? Is it clear what charity is benefiting from the program? Susan G. Komen, for example, requires all of its partners to clearly state that their program benefits the organization. In many cases, they will include Komen’s iconic logo on their packaging. 2. How will the charity use the donation? It should be clear where the proceeds go. Look for programs that support organizations which take a 360-degree approach to fighting the disease by funding breakthrough research, supporting compassionate public policy and providing patient support. 3. How is the program structured? Transparency is key. Is the company clearly stating how the money is raised and how much will be going to charity? For example, if it’s a donation per purchase structure, ask how much of the purchase price benefits the charity. Is there is a minimum or maximum contribution? Is it a flat donation regardless of sale? By shopping savvy this National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, you can ensure your purchases are making the biggest impact possible. *** The emphasis must be not on the right to abortion but on the right to privacy and reproductive control. — Ruth Bader Ginsburg ***

As the season wanes, an abundance of green tomatoes forlornly hang on the vine looking for enough sun to turn them into red jewels. I’ve begun searching for unique ways to use green tomatoes as a vegetable and as a fruit in my recipes. Scientifically, tomatoes are classified as a fruit, but since they don’t contain

the sweet flavor of most fruits and are typically used in savory dishes, they’re legally classified as a vegetable. Tomatoes are low in calories and a good source of vitamins C,

Carved Stone Bust A Rago auction catalog called a large carved bust made of black stone a "Haida Argillite carving" and then explained the meaning of the word "argillite." Antiques can be made by people, companies or methods with unfamiliar names, but this time the auction house realized that bidders needed help. Argillite is a fine-grained black silt stone found in only one spot, the Slatechuck Creek on Haida Gwaii, also called the Queen Charlotte Islands, in the Pacific Ocean off the northwest coast of British Columbia, Canada. The Haida, a North American native culture, were the original people

making

carvings of wood and argillite since about 1800. Pipes used with tobacco have been found that were made from 1810 to 1840. The location of the quarry is a secret and only the Haida are permitted to use the stone. Today, Haida carvers make and sell carved argillite jewelry and decorations -- "tourist art" made to be sold to visitors. Both the Haida and European cultures are depicted. Many pieces are amusing. The bust of a man, made about 1840s to 1850s, sold for $18,750. A carving of one piece as large as a bust is unusual and valuable because the stone breaks easily. Twentieth-century interest in the antique arts of native peoples has led to higher prices. *** Q: Do McDonald's restaurant giveaway toys have any resale value? My children have been saving them in the unopened packages for more than 15 years. Is there a way to tell the age?

A: Very few McDonald's Happy Meal toys are worth a lot of money. Most full sets (eight or more toys) given away in the past five years are worth under $50 at a retail source. That means a single toy is worth less than $5, and they usually are just $1 or $2, if you are lucky. The 1987 set of 12 Mr. Potato Head toys retails at $75. It is said that a set of eight Furby toys from 2000 sold for $900, but that may be a myth.

(StatePoint) Every year, eligible individuals can shop for a health plan during Medicare’s Annual Election Period (AEP), which runs from Oct. 15 through Dec. 7. Doing so can potentially improve your coverage, lower your costs or both. The options are many, including Original Medicare, Medicare Advantage (MA) plans, Medicare Supplement plans and Prescription Drug Plans. According to Aparna Abburi, president of the Medicare Advantage business at Cigna, one of the nation’s largest insurers, those concerned about COVID-19 exposure have a number of ways to shop. If you’re computer savvy, visit plan websites like www.cigna.com/ medicare or Medicare’s Plan Finder at Medicare.gov. You might even be able to attend a virtual educational session. If you prefer phone, call individual plans or independent brokers representing the health plan you’re considering. You can also request a face-to-face meeting, but be sure to follow the COVID-19 safety precautions outlined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Abburi said you’ll want to think about the following when picking a plan: Review changes.

he W dt

An ethics class was required in seminary and for that class, I wrote a paper about judging others. As you might imagine, I argued against judging others. I don’t remember the details of my argument, but what I do remember is the professor’s remark written on my paper when he returned it. “Is there anything you would judge?” Reading that remark was like a light going on. I realized that there are many things that I see as falling into a grey area, where I can accept a difference of opinion. But, there are other things that I believe are just plain wrong, even to the point of being evil. In the scripture, the apostle Paul admonishes the new Christians in Rome to hate what is evil, hold fast to what is good. It seems so straight forward, obvious -- until we try to actually do it or to reach some agreement about what is evil and what is good. Of course, the problem is that we are not consistently accurate in our identification of evil. We want recognizing evil to be easy so we try to tie evil to some obvious characteristic like how someone looks or how they dress, where they live or who they love. But evil hides in people who seem respectable, dressed in nice suits and speaking in polite, even cheerful tones. In an effort to protect ourselves, we label whole groups of people as evil and we try to dis-empower, blame, or control them. There are two big problems with that strategy. First, it prevents us from recognizing the innocent within the group we have labeled and, second, it tends to blind us to the dangerous evil in people who are like us. Years ago, Scott Peck wrote a book called People of the Lie. In the book, he sets out to analyze the psychology of evil. He says that evil people are very often perceived as ordinary, solid citizens. The evil they do is often legal but harmful, subtle and persistent. As the title of the book suggests, the most consistent characteristic of evil is dishonesty. Not just dishonesty with others but, almost more importantly, dishonesty with themselves, denying their own destructive, hateful thoughts, urges and actions. Very often, they accuse others of the evil that is within themselves. This is why it is especially important to consistently search our own hearts and minds, examine our thoughts and motives and work to eliminate the evil we find there, being especially mindful of places where we allow dishonesty to live and grow. Most of us would agree that Hitler was one of the most evil men in history. He admitted (bragged) that dishonesty was one of his most effective strategies. He brought people along with him by lying to them, creating in their minds a reality that didn’t exist. He said the bigger the lie, the easier it is to get people to believe you, just keep telling it over and over. To hate what is evil and hold to what is good does not mean we must accept evil or allow ourselves to be victims. It means we do not rush to label something as evil. It means we separate the evil motive or action from the person and condemn the motive or action but not the person. And, we must not try to fight evil by using evil tactics, thus becoming evil ourselves. It is discouraging when we can’t see the results of our efforts to defeat evil. When the liar continues to have no consequences for the terrible effects of their lies. But I have to keep believing that our efforts aren’t waisted. Every time someone stands up and says, “This isn’t right” or “This isn’t true” they are being faithful to Paul’s admonition to hate evil and hold fast to good, to overcome evil with good. Evil gains power in darkness and deception. Goodness gains power in truth and light. We may not eliminate evil when we expose it but we do diminish its

California Commentary

California Supreme Court Puts Taxpayers At Big Risk

by Jon Coupal

On Wednesday two weeks ago, the California Supreme Court declined to hear a case involving the validity of a local special tax initiative that failed to secure two-thirds voter approval. That requirement is found in Proposition 13 (1978) as well as Proposition 218 (1996), also known as the Right to Vote on Taxes Act, both of which were sponsored by the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association. Taxpayers had petitioned the Supreme Court to review a lower Court of Appeal’s ruling refusing to apply well-settled law. The significance of the Supreme Court’s failure to provide clarity on this important issue cannot be overstated. Unless it resolves this question in other cases now working their way up through the court system, a gaping new loophole will have been created in the constitutional protections for taxpayers that voters have repeatedly ratified over the decades. Moreover, the failure to act is a green light to tax-and-spend interests to extract even more dollars from the most heavily taxed citizens in the United States. By way of background, Proposition C was a voter initiative that proposed a new tax in San Francisco for the special purpose of expanding services for the city’s homeless. It was approved by a majority, but not by a two-thirds margin, of the local electorate in November of 2018. Proposition 13, approved by California voters in 1978, requires a two-thirds vote of the electorate to pass a tax increase for any special purpose. This has been the law for 40 years. It has also been the consistent understanding of interests often hostile to taxpayer rights. The Legislative Analyst’s Office, California League of Cities, and numerous other local governments have agreed that all local special taxes require two-thirds voter consent. Despite this consensus, and two older published cases that invalidated special tax initiatives for not receiving two-thirds

approval, the San Francisco Court of Appeal ruled that Proposition C passed with only a simple majority. This creates a huge loophole in Propositions 13 and 218 because local officials can simply structure their special tax proposals as initiatives to avoid the two-thirds voter approval requirement. The basis for the court’s strange ruling was a 2017 California Supreme Court case, California Cannabis Coalition v. City of Upland, which had nothing to do with vote thresholds. Rather, it was limited to a narrow technical question: When a local initiative seeks to impose a new tax, does the measure need to be put to the voters at the next general election or can the proponents, relying on other laws, require a special election that happens sooner? The lower court had ruled that taxes increased by initiative are exempt from Proposition 218 provisions regarding the timing of an election. But Upland never ruled that the two-thirds vote requirement would be inapplicable to a tax increase proposed by initiative. The Supreme Court in Upland reasoned that local voters were different from the governing body when it comes to enacting legislation. But for decades courts have said that when voters use the initiative power they are simply “stepping into the shoes” of the governing body and have the same powers and same limitations. For example, a local city council cannot seize someone’s real property without paying “just compensation.” But the rationale of the court suggests that if local housing advocates passed an initiative to seize someone’s property, there’s no requirement to pay for it. That is surely an absurd result. Until the Supreme Court clarifies this issue, the ruling of the Court of Appeal in the Proposition C case will create a bizarre system whereby different vote thresholds — including no continued on page 12

Dear EarthTalk: I am sickened by all the death, destruction and misery resulting from the West Coast wildfires, but aren’t these blazes actually beneficial to the environment? -- B.T., Helena, MT

729 D Street • Ramona

Howdy From Lake Cuyamaca

Some landscapes need occasional forest fires to germinate seeds for new plants' growth. Credit: Richard Droker, FlickrCC. Some landscapes evolved with periodic wildfires as an influential force, and people have been using “prescribed burns” (the controlled application of fire under specified weather conditions) to restore health to certain types of ecosystems for millennia. But while some fires in some places might be beneficial, the wholesale torching of the forests of the American West right now is far from beneficial overall—not to mention a sure sign that our profligate ways with carbon emissions are coming back to haunt us. On the plus side, forest fire does clear away the tinder-like overgrown understory that has resulted from years of forest management that avoided fire at all cost. Hundreds of years ago, many of the forests now on fire in California, Oregon and Washington had fewer yet larger and healthier trees. But these days, partly thanks to fire suppression regimes as well as other factors, forests are more crowded today with smaller, less healthy trees. It’s also harder for those remaining mature, established trees to compete for nutrients and space with all the undergrowth that’s built up in recent decades. In these situations, small manageable fires (or even better, prescribed burns) cannot only be beneficial, but can help prevent larger fires down the road by clearing the weaker, smaller trees. Another benefit of wildfire is the clearing of overgrown underbrush to make room for new grasses, herbs and regenerated shrubs that provide food and habitat for many wildlife species. Also, the removal of thick stands of shrubs increases the water supply for the remaining larger plants and trees—and also allows streams and rivers to swell, further benefiting ever-thirsty native flora and fauna. Yet another benefit of fire is that it kills off fungi, bacteria, viruses and insects that can decimate tree and plant communities and entire forest ecosystems. According to CalFire, California’s statewide wildfire management agency, more trees die from insect infestation and disease than from wildfire; some fire actually helps keep forests devoid of such pests and healthier overall than without fire. CalFire points out that vegetation burned by wildfire provides a rich source of nutrients that nourish surviving trees and soil. And periodic fire can be an important way to keep certain ecosystems in balance. Many trees have evolved with fire and some even require it for seed germination; a few species even sport leaves covered with flammable resins (manzanita, scrub oak, chamise) to encourage fires that help seed the next generation. National Geographic reports that, surprisingly, wildlife casualties tend to be low during wildfire events, as animals—especially those native to the areas on-fire and evolved to respond to the threat— either burrow in the ground or flee to safer areas instinctively. But invasive plants and animals may not fare as well given lack of genetic imprinting to be on alert for the threat. Once the smoke clears on 2020’s horrific fire season, mass human and wildlife casualties could be the new normal. Global warming certainly has thrown the fire season into overdrive this year across California, Oregon and Washington, whether or not the Trump administration cares to admit it.

“Dusty Britches” here after a long pandemic and soft reopening, which wasn’t so soft… meaning we have been getting our collective butts kicked out here. With the extreme temperatures we haven’t been able to stock until now. That damn pandemic still isn’t over but our water temperatures are now acceptable (67 degrees) to our trout provider and catfish provider. The catfish were hard to get because they were all spoken for, until now. On September 21st we will be stocking 600 pounds of catfish catfish up to 3 pounds. and on September 24th we will be stocking 3,000 pounds of trout from Mt. Lassen . !,800 of the 3,000 pounds will be from 1 pound to 3 pounds and 1,200 pounds of the trout plant will be from 3 pounds to 8 pounds. Water temperatures are starting to drop and we are keeping in touch with Mt. Lassen on a daily basis to let them know. DFW has us on their stocking schedule during the last week of September or first week of October. The panfish… bluegill, crappie, and red-ear sunfish are still coming out along with channel catfish have been the mainstay during the long, hot, and dry period and plans are to travel up to Will Creek Hatchery to pick up some brood blue gill crappie, sun fish, and Florida Strain Largemouth Bass soon to replenish what has been taken out over the past 6 months. Things are looking up for our anglers. Have you ever had a long and meaningful conversation with someone through your respective masks on two sides of a piece of plexiglass… I have… for hours at a time, but you do what you gotta do. In the interim, at the homestead we bought and grew a steer in Mesa Grande, and 2 pigs at home… all in the freezer. We still have 4 turkeys for the upcoming Holidays (still alive) in addition to our two Labradors, 7 chickens, and a rabbit. The rabbit will take up residence in the old pig pen outside as soon as we get things squared away to open up some space in the garage. And all the chickens are still laying, so they are safe… for now. The Labradors are cool. The older female just goes along with whatever is happening. And the younger male is just a goofy young male dog although weird at times… lets just say he’s a work in progress. There are lots of folks enjoying the Lake and we are ALL hoping things don’t turn purple again.

vision, transportation or even an allowance for purchasing certain over-the-counter items. In these times, you might be especially interested in benefits that help you stay healthy while safe at home, such as telehealth, prescription drug delivery and inhome fitness programs. Know your network. Beyond cost, make sure the plan’s network includes your favorite facilities and doctors. Are you okay seeking care within a network? These kinds of choices should be guided by your own personal goals and preferences. Consider costs. To estimate total costs, first, know the plan’s premium or monthly cost. Second, check for out-ofpocket costs, including copays and deductibles on doctor and hospital visits and prescription drugs. Finally, check to see what the cost will be if you need to see a specialist. In some plans, you pay more for going outside your network.

Don’t forget prevention. Many MA plans cover preventive health screenings beyond those covered by Original Medicare. Talk to your doctor about which screenings are important for you given your age and health status. While it’s smart to minimize your risk to COVID-19, you still want to make sure you’re getting preventive and other necessary care. Your doctor will have proper safety protocols in place.

It freezes well, and makes a delicious change from traditional cranberry relish for holiday meals. The spices and flavors of my Green Tomato Spice Cake act as a showcase for the tomato’s fruit-like qualities. Whether you decide to use your abundance of green tomatoes like a vegetable or a fruit, you can’t go wrong with these recipes! GREEN TOMATO AND ORANGE RELISH 4 medium green tomatoes 1 large purple or Vidalia onion 1 cup orange marmalade 2 cups dark brown sugar 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar 1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes 1. Core the bottom of the green tomatoes and cut them into quarters. Peel the onion and cut it into quarters. Using a food processor, pulse the green tomato and onion 8 to 10 times, until the pieces become small (“pickle-relish” size). Do not puree. 2. Using a 4-quart, heavybottomed pot, put in all the ingredients at once. Cook over low heat for 15 minutes, stirring until blended and the sugar begins to dissolve. 3. Turn the heat to medium and cook for 30 to 40 minutes, stirring occasionally. The relish should be syrupy and slightly thick. If it does not seem to have thickened enough, cook the relish 10 minutes more. 4. Cool for 2 hours, and then put the relish in an air-tight container and refrigerate it. The relish can be refrigerated for two weeks. You also can place the cooled relish into plastic zip-lock storage bags and freeze for up to 6 months. Makes 5 cups of relish. GREEN TOMATO SPICE CAKE

When I was growing up, there were no women in orchestras. Auditioners thought they could tell the difference between a woman playing and a man. Some intelligent person devised a simple solution: Drop a curtain between the auditioners and the people trying out. And, lo and behold, women began to get jobs in symphony orchestras. — Ruth Bader Ginsburg

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Careful, Lamb. Taking on too many tasks at one time can cause you to create more snarls each time you try to work your way through the tangled mass. Best to handle one job at a time. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Making bold moves is what Bovines do. But the best moves are made with lots of data to provide backup just in case you charge into an unexpected complication. A new relationship shows promise. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Sharing credit for a job well done is easy for you to do, but not necessarily for your partner. But fair is fair. Don't let yourself be denied the right to have your contributions recognized. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Communication is important to help bridge a gap that can lead to problems at home and/ or at the workplace. Find a way to get your points across before the breach becomes a chasm. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Relationships, whether business or personal, need to be watched carefully for signs of trouble. Any negative indications should be dealt with before they become too burdensome. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Congratulations. A more positive aspect highlights much of the Virgo's week. You should find others more receptive to your suggestions, and also more likely to act on them. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) All work and little

play could wear the Libra's usually positive attitude down. Take some much-needed time off. Perhaps a short jaunt with someone special is the way to go. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) This is a good time to expand your view from the known to the unfamiliar. Confronting new situations could be challenging, but ultimately also could be extremely satisfying. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Giving advice to those who just want validation for what they're doing can be unsettling. So back off and save your counsel for those who really appreciate it. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Cultivating a more positive attitude not only makes you feel better about yourself, but also has an upbeat effect on those around you, especially that certain someone. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Keeping the lines of communication open and accessible is the key to establishing the right foundation on which to build an important and meaningful relationship. Stay with it. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Before agreeing to act on a request, consider using your perceptive Piscean talents to see what might lie hidden beneath its surface and could possibly cause problems later on. BORN THIS WEEK: You're a friend who, if you err at all, does so on the side of concern for those you care about.

California Commentary

Wednesday - September 23, 2020

continued from page 9 vote at all — will govern election outcomes depending on whether a tax was proposed by the local governing body or by the initiative process. The potential for abuse is unlimited. Can politicians themselves, acting in their capacity as private voters, use the citizens’ initiative process in order to circumvent the requirement of two-thirds voter consent? It would seem so. Another abuse that will surely manifest itself is that public agencies will collude with outside interests to propose new taxes in the form of an initiative, then submit a tax under a lower vote threshold than that currently required. The worst-case scenario would be if a local government recruited an outside interest to qualify an

initiative proposing a tax that the politicians desired, then adopt the proposed tax without any election at all. If there is any good news in this, it is that HJTA has prevailed in this issue in a case arising out of Fresno County. There, a tax that was sponsored by a local organization also failed to achieve a two-thirds vote and the trial court concluded — correctly — that the tax should not go into effect. Moreover, a trial court in Alameda County invalidated an Oakland special tax that fell short of the two-thirds threshold. Ultimately, the Supreme Court will have to resolve the issue, one way or another. And if it is against taxpayers, another statewide measure in the mold of Prop. 13 will surely be on the table. *** Jon Coupal is the president of the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association.

*** You can't have it all all at once. Over my lifespan, I think I have had it all, but in given periods in time, things were rough. And if you have a caring life partner, you help the other person when that person needs it. — Ruth Bader Ginsburg ***
