Special Handcrafted Holidays Gifts By The Ladies Of The Julian Woman’s Club This Saturday And Sunday The ladies of the Julian Woman’s Club are very busy preparing for the Holiday Season. This year the holiday is especially important for the Club and the Julian community because the pandemic has limited the Club’s fundraising programs to support the community. They are working hard to present the best Holiday Boutique at the Clubhouse, 2607 C Street, Julian, on November 28 and 29, from 10am to 4 pm. As part of the boutiques offerings The Ladies of the Julian Woman’s Club Quilt group are sewing beautiful quilt table runners, table toppers, baby bibs, microwave bowl cozies, mug rugs, small wall hangings and more. The quilt group has been working under the direction of Julian Woman’s Club member, Eleanor Burns, an honoree of the American Quilter’s Society, in her studio in Julian. Burns is known for her book, Quilt in a Day, which began a quilt making revolution. She continues to impact the patchwork community though television programming, teacher training and publication of instructional books. The quilting industry calls Burns the “Queen of Quilting” and the “First Lady of Quilting”. Proceeds from the Holiday Boutique will fund scholarships for local students wishing to attend college and/or special career preparation programs for reentry into the workforce. They also give funds to assist: Julian Pathways; Pathways Literacy Project; Miss Julian Scholarship Pageant Fund; Mountain Manna; SD Community Resource Center; Friends of Julian Library; Julian Cemetery; and other sponsorships as needed. The Club has supported the Julian Community for over 94 years. To give thanks in solitude is enough. Thanksgiving has wings and goes where it must go. Your prayer knows much more about it than you do. — Victor Hugo

Indoor operations at restaurants, gyms, places of worship and movie theaters are currently not allowed as part of efforts to curb the spread of COVID-19. That is why the County has stepped up its enforcement efforts to make sure businesses and other entities are following the local health order. To date, the County has issued more than 70 cease and desist and closure orders to local businesses and organizations for failure to comply. Over 40 of those were served this week. When a business or entity is reported, the County investigates and determines whether to issue a cease and desist order. If one is issued, and the entity continues to violate the local health order, a closure notice is issued. A list of cease and desist and closure orders is available at the County’s corovavirus site. “We are ramping up and enhancing compliance as well as testing given the surge in cases,” said Wilma Wooten, M.D., M.P.H., County public health officer. “We have not seen numbers like these in the course of the pandemic.” Additionally, all local law enforcement agencies have been asked to help enforce the local health order. The San Diego County Sheriff’s Department will be sending enforcement teams throughout the region to help ensure the public health guidance is followed. The teams will first

Volcan Mountain Foundation Selects Eric Jones New Executive Director

Thanksgiving’s Different But Safe Cooking Never Changes; Take The Quiz!

by Gig Conaughton, County of San Diego Communications Office

New Executive Director Eric Jones and VMF board members Valérie Cournoyer and Dr. Michael Lang out on the trail. Volcan Mountain Foundation’s Board of Directors has selected VMF’s current President, Eric Jones, as its new Executive Director. Eric combines his passion for preserving the Volcan Mountains range for all generations with broad organizational leadership experience as a strategy and technology consultant, business owner and avid outdoorsman. He and his wife, Jenny, have been active members of Julian’s vibrant volunteer community since moving here seven years ago. “I am thrilled to take on this new challenge full-time, and build on the successes of those who have come before me,” said Jones. “VMF was founded years ago by members of the Julian community in response to planned development that would have permanently altered its natural beauty and essential rural character.” “As a result of more than three decades of sustained effort, VMF is recognized as a regional leader in scientific research and outdoor education, centered on San Diego backcountry’s unique montane ecosystem. I look forward to expanding our rich community partnership and preserving the Julian that we all love.”

p.m. to 5 a.m. The curfew will last for 30 days. Community Setting Outbreaks: Five new community outbreaks were confirmed on Nov. 18: two in restaurant/bar settings, two in business settings and one in a retailer. In the past seven days (Nov. 12 through Nov. 18), 36 community outbreaks were confirmed. The number of community outbreaks remains above the trigger of seven or more in seven days. A community setting outbreak is defined as three or more COVID-19 cases in a setting and in people of different households over the past 14 days.

Thanksgiving is definitely going to look very different this year. Zoom and virtual visits with extended family and friends. Fewer people around our tables — ideally, just our immediate households. But adjusting the holidays to fight COVID-19 doesn’t mean you can’t cook a Thanksgiving meal! And if you’re the chef, remember — use safe-cooking rules like, “keep hot foods hot and cold foods cold, keep meats and veggies separated during food prep, and practice good hygiene.” Because the last thing you want to do, after fighting COVID and staying safe, is to accidentally serve up helpings of bacteria like E. coli, listeria and salmonella that can turn your meals into heaping plates of food-borne illness! With that in mind, the County’s Department of Environmental Health is offering its annual (and fun) safe-Thanksgiving cooking quiz to help you prepare. Here you go! What’s the best way to thaw frozen meat? (this year’s smaller turkey, Cornish game hen, whatever…) Put it out on the counter, don’t let anyone touch it and wait till the outside is mushy-soft. Run hot water over it until it gets mushy-soft. Let it sit in a pot of water until it gets (wait for it…) mushy-soft! Let it defrost in the fridge. Meats, poultry and fish should continued on page 5

I came up with the idea after talking to my mom. She said there's usually a mitten tree in town but not this year because of Covid. That made me a little sad. I thought about how financially hard it's been for parents during covid and how they might not have enough money to buy extra mittens and socks for their children. I know how cold it gets here and it saddens me that there might be some kids that wouldn't have any warm socks or mittens to go outside and play during the winter break. I asked my mom if we could do a similar project with the Woman's Club (I just joined) with fuzzy socks and mittens so we could make sure all the kids in Julian had something warm to play in. I also wanted to give kids a positive message. Covid is hard on everyone. I see that some of my friends who've always been happy are struggling. So I want to put a happy uplifting message in each pair. I am a big advocate for suicide awareness so I thought that putting a positive message in the socks would uplift anyone who is feeling depressed or sad. My mom then asked the Woman's Club president if we could do the project and I emailed principal copeland. We also emailed Julian Pathways to see if we could put a mitten and sock donation box there. I then asked the Chamber if we could set up a table outside on December 12 and 13 from 12:00-2:00 to try and get donations. The Woman's Club asked the library if we could put a tiny mitten tree there as well. Mom put the information on her Facebook page where we did a GoFundMe for funds to buy more mittens. We also put it on the JWC facebook page. So far everyone has been really positive and encouraging. I think we can reach or even exceed our goal. On the last day before winter break the students will get their socks or mittens. Mr. Copeland can play Santa's helper or maybe we can hang the mittens up on a fence and let the students choose which pair they want. In order to have mittens that will fit everyone, we are asking for donations of kids, small adult mittens, and also fuzzy socks. Feel free donate them at the Woman's Club, the Tea Shop, library or Op Shop. I hope to make a positive impact on the Julian kids and community. Brooke Gonzalez is 14. She’s the youngest member of the Julian Woman’s Club. Brooke’s goal is to get mittens or fuzzy socks on the hands and feet of every student at Julian Elementary School. In addition, she wants to put an uplifting note to each student in each pair.

Wishing you all a Thanksgiving of Abundance. Julian Chamber of Commerce

TREE N C A O I M L U J E HT Local Experience Since 1988PANY Dear Sir, I just want to comment on our visit to Julian on Sunday, 11/15/20! My daughter, my ten year old greatgrandson and I went to visit Julian to celebrate our birthdays and do some shopping, however, when we entered several different stores, we were shocked to see merchandise displayed with the F word and the S word! My greatgrandson told us not to go on one aisle because it was "nasty"! I've been coming up to Julian since I was a child and have never ever encountered what we did yesterday!! I will be 82 yrs old next week, just to let you know how long I've been coming up there! It has always been such a wholesome and great place to bring your family to, but not anymore! In my view, this is very poor merchandising! I will not be coming up there to expose my children to filth ever again!! A Very Sad Used to Be Visitor, Ellen Watkins Valley Center

The coronavirus pandemic has laid much of the American economy on its back — but a bright spot made the disaster less crippling than it might have been. That is the Paycheck Protection Program, which funneled money to workers through small businesses. More than five million small businesses took the PPP loans, representing 50 million jobs, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin told Congress in June. It persuaded small businesses to keep people on the payroll instead of laying them off. That helped the economy. Congress said the loans would not be taxed. But Congress is letting the IRS tax the businesses anyway. Unless new legislation is passed by the end of the year, the tax could finish off many of the businesses that are trying desperately to hang on through this impossible economy. The way the government is going to punish the businesses that saved 50 million jobs is to deny the deduction of payroll, rent and other expenses that they paid out with the PPP money. The Treasury Department, which sets policy for IRS, doubled down this week by reiterating that businesses will have to pay taxes on that money, even though they normally would be able to deduct these business expenses. A bipartisan group of senators and representatives have been pushing for a change, but not pushing so hard that they are accomplishing the one thing that is needed to fix this problem: pass a new law. “When we developed and passed the Paycheck Protection Program, our intent was clearly to make sure small businesses had the liquidity and the help they needed to get through these difficult times,” Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, said when he introduced the Small Business Expense Protection Act, S 3612, with a bipartisan group of senators. “Unfortunately, Treasury and the IRS interpreted the law in a way that’s preventing businesses from deducting expenses associated with PPP loans. That’s just the opposite of what we intended and should be fixed. This bill will do just that.” Unemployment this year hit nearly 15% — the highest the nation has seen since the Great Depression. If businesses had not kept their payrolls running through PPP, unemployment would have zoomed even higher. Yet businesses made the leap of faith — kept their people working, spent the PPP money as directed and now for their good citizenship, they are going to be punished with a tax. The power to tax is the power to destroy. Chief Justice John Marshall was right. Congress should wake up. It didn’t spend trillions in tax dollars to prop up the economy only to allow one agency to undo its good work. PPP deductibility must be fixed now.

EAST OF PINE HILLS

My Thoughts by Michele Harvey

Putting Things Off

by Kiki Skagen Munshi

The Tree Butchers

The SDG&E tree butchers are at it again, turning what used to be a lovely shaded stretch of Frisius into a nothing piece of road. Is a tree near a power line? Well, maybe… sort of… Then chop it down! Give any man a power saw and watch out is a general rule; SDG&E contractors prove it in spades. We know the problems trees can pose to power lines and, hey, we live here, we certainly are aware of the dangers of fire but there is another side to the coin. That is moderation. A word the SDG&E tree butchers apparently never heard. Today it is a great pine tree, one of the tallest along the road and ACROSS the road from the power line. It is being cut down completely… mercilessly and uselessly. Other days it has been wholesale topping and chopping of oaks, already threatened by the Golden Oak Borer. Many of them will die as well. And even before that happens part of our Back Country heritage will have been destroyed. Tree-shaded roads? Forget that one. Dappled sunlight coming through leaves? Not a chance. What do they care, the wellpaid decision makers living in the city? Clearly not a whit. And what can we do? Not much. SDG&E is a private, profit making company and public pressure is nowhere compared to profit. It costs more to be careful about trees. Trees? Why bother anyway? They mainly get in the way.

Thanksgiving Quiz continued from page 1

be defrosted in the refrigerator. (If it’s a big turkey, for at least 24 hours for every five pounds in weight.) Answer: D, of course. Using the refrigerator to thaw slowly and evenly is the best, safest way to defrost any meat. Because bacteria can grow exponentially at room temperatures. Note: The United States Department of Agriculture says that you can also thaw meats in cold water. But — and this is important — the water must be cold, under 40 degrees, and should be changed every 30 minutes to keep it cold. The refrigerator’s easier! How often should you wash your hands and cutting boards when preparing food? You don’t have to wash your hands and cutting boards. A few germs will toughen up your immune system! Before you start cooking. After you pet the dog, the cat, the gerbil or pick up the kids. If you sneeze, blow your nose or have to run to the restroom. Everything except answer A, but mainly, “OFTEN.” Answer: Definitely E. (Get out of the kitchen if you answered A) You should wash your hands and cutting boards before and after everything in B, C and D. Handwashing is always a key part of safe cooking. And this year, with COVID? It’s important even if you’re not cooking! So wash your hands. Harmful bacteria, from E. coli to salmonella and staphylococcus aureus, as well as viruses, can be removed from people’s hands through proper handwashing. Here are just a few other things you should wash your hands after doing: coughing, blowing your nose, using the restroom handling money, eating, drinking, smoking and handling or preparing raw food. Should you rinse off fruits and vegetables? Not if they look clean.

Nah, the supermarket washes them, right? Nope. They grew in nature. That’s good enough for me. Yes. You should rinse fruits and vegetables with cold water to remove lingering dirt that can carry bacteria. Answer: Absolutely D. Rinsing with cold water cleans off dirt and other contaminants. But don’t wash them with detergents or soap, even dishwashing soap. You could end up eating residues from those cleaners if they’re absorbed by fruits and vegetables. Why should you keep raw meats and meat products separated from fruits and vegetables when cutting them up or preparing them? Meat can make your veggies taste weird. Or veggies can make your meat taste weird. Either way, weird. Face it, meats and fruits and vegetables just don’t like each other. Last thing you need is a food fight. Because raw meats, meat products and blood can carry bacteria like E. coli and salmonella that can contaminate fruits and vegetables — and make people sick. You do not have to. It’s called “marinade.” Answer: The correct answer is C. (If you said D, again — get out of the kitchen.) Crosscontamination is one of the most common causes of foodborne illness, according to the USDA. That is, the transfer of harmful bacteria from one food, particularly raw meats, poultry and shellfish to other foods. When preparing food, you need to keep raw meats and their juices away from fruits and vegetables and all ready-to-eat foods. Not sociallydistant away (you don’t need 6 feet), but still, apart. If you can, use separate cutting boards for meats and produce. If you can’t, wash cutting boards with hot, soapy water after using them on raw meats and before using them to cut fruits and

Sometimes we plan to do things and then we can’t. Perhaps we want to spray paint an item outside, but we get a rainy day or a windy day instead. Or for me lately, I line up items to take to thrift stores or other places and I must take my car to the mechanic. This has happened to me twice in the past month. A few weeks ago, my car wouldn’t start the first or second time I tried. I made an appointment with my mechanic and was told that nothing major was wrong (thank GOD) however, lots of little things needed to be repaired. So they kept it for a day or two and my car was much happier when the mechanics were finished and so was I. Three weeks later as I finished delivering Julian News papers in Ramona and headed home, my power steering groaned. Once I got home my men folk checked the power steering fluid reservoir and it was empty. This is not good. The men put fluid in it and the noise went away but I still knew I had a problem, so after making an appointment to leave my car at the mechanic’s Mike and I loaded up the grandchildren for a road trip to Ramona. I drove my car while Mike drove his. We dropped my car off at Danny’s to be repaired and then we all had dinner from Jack-In-The-Box. Since it was dinner time we allowed our nine, ten and eleven year old grand children to get adult sized meals. We were fairly certain that they would regret it and they did. After eating so much food, each of them vowed to order kids meals forever, from now on. Being way too full, they were unusually quiet on the drive home, not at all showing their usual feisty attitudes towards each other. I have prescriptions to pick up, boxes to take to the Post Office and reusable bags to take to the Methodist Church and can’t do any of these things while my car is in the repair shop. Yes, I have friends who would do these errands for me, but none of the errands is important enough in my mind to call a friend. I can wait. I am and have always considered myself to be a very independent person when it comes to transportation. I have never been without a driver’s license and have seldom been without a vehicle in over fifty-five years. When I am without a vehicle, I simply do my best to convince myself that I don’t need one at that time. You do what ya gotta do when ya gotta do it. That saying comes to my mind once in a while. I began writing this column four days ago and yet I kept putting it off. I found things to do that seemed more important or at least more urgent to me. I often write about the importance of organization. Well, this is my week to get organized because I have to find something that I haven’t seen for over five years. When we lost Rabobank here in Julian, I went to UnionBank and opened several accounts. I opened a personal checking account, a business checking account, a savings account, an account to take credit cards in my business and I got a safe deposit box. Well, all I have left is the personal checking account and the safe deposit box. Not a big deal right? It is a big deal because the Ramona branch is closing and I need to find my Safe deposit box keys before January first. If I don’t find the keys I will be charged $150.00 to have the box drilled open. But, I kept putting off looking for them and now the things I need to get done before Christmas and before the first of the year are mounting along with finding the keys. I have my car back, but sometimes it seems like the days that I am without a vehicle, I am at a standstill. For instance, I have been collecting books to give to the Friends of the Julian Library. I don’t mean that I’ve been collecting them from other people. I mean that I have been taking them out of my book shelves and putting them in boxes which I stack. I really don’t want stacked boxes of books in my living room which is where they are now. I’d rather drive them to the library, which I finally did once I got my car back from my mechanic. Now I’m creating a new stack of boxes full of books. I just have too many books and the friends of the Julian Library have several book carts around our area where books can be found. In this time of Covid, having a book to read is a very good thing. When I was a child, one of three, raised by a single mother who was a war widow, we seldom had anything extra. My brother, sister and I began working by the time we reached eleven years of age and in high school I made nearly all of my clothes. Consequently, I have become a hoarder. Right now, I’m trying to unhoard all of my excess books. I’m sure that I own at least two thousand and most of those I will never read so it’s time to quit putting off the inevitable. It’s time to let go of a lot of books and create space for I don’t know what, but not books. I don’t feel locked down because I have family on my property. I have cats, chickens, deer and wild turkeys to entertain me and I still have plenty of books to read. These are my thoughts. vegetables! What is the Danger Zone? And what does it have to do with Thanksgiving dinner? The Danger Zone is that classic 1996 adventure-thriller movie starring Robert Downey Jr. and Billy Zane! It has nothing to do with Thanksgiving … (We know, you were hoping for “that song from the 80s movie “Top Gun.” We figured it was time to change it up…) It’s that toy-strewn distance you have to traverse, carrying all the Thanksgiving food from your kitchen to the table, without dropping everything! It’s the range of temperatures between 40 degrees Fahrenheit and 140 degrees Fahrenheit — the temperatures where bacteria can grow like crazy in foods, doubling in number in as little as 20 minutes. Answer: The correct answer is C. We love a good adventurethriller movie as much as you do. But the Danger Zone is the range of temperature between 40 degrees and 140 degrees Fahrenheit that allows bacteria to breed exponentially — not a good thing. If hot foods cool or cold foods heat up enough to enter that zone, your food can become a bacteria-fest. And you can end up getting sick. Keep hot foods safely heated with chafing dishes, preheated steam tables, warming trays, slow cookers and ovens. Place cold foods in

containers on ice, or in the fridge. And refrigerate leftovers as soon as you can, but definitely within two hours. Here’s more about the “Danger Zone.” And finally: Is the “five-second rule” real? Can you eat something you’ve dropped on the floor if you pick it up in less than five seconds? Yes. It is definitely real. Just pick it up quick and blow on it. Nothing can contaminate your food in less than five seconds. Uncle Dave taught me that. It’s not real. And you really shouldn’t eat anything you’ve dropped on floor. (Sorry Uncle Dave.) My dogs eat everything off the floor and I’ve never seen them get sick. Answer: B. It’s OK for the dog to eat food that’s fallen to the ground but it’s not safe for people. Truth is, almost any contact is long enough for food to be contaminated by bacteria that can be found on the ground or in your house. According to research conducted this year by Rutgers University, bacteria can transfer from a surface to food in less than a second! So there you have it. We hope you’re an expert. But if you’re still interested, you can get more information about food safety tips at FoodSafety.gov’s “Food Safety by Types of Food” webpage, or by calling the USDA’s Meat and Poultry hotline at 1-888-6746854. Be safe. And have a good Thanksgiving!

The Julian News 5

From The Supervisor’s Desk

Notes from Supervisor Dianne Jacob Triple-header: Three big, long-awaited projects are starting construction in Lakeside. Together, they will further boost the town’s economy and quality of life ● Lakeside Equestrian Park. The nearly 14-acre project at Moreno Avenue and Willow Road will include a covered arena, open arena with shaded bleacher seating and a multipurpose building. ● Lindo Lake beautification. The east basin is being restored to its natural state, while the west basin is also set for major improvements. Sediment will be removed, trees replanted and nearly 100 fish habitat and spawning structures will be placed on the lakebed. New amenities will include ADA-accessible walking paths, bird watching stations and a fishing pier. ● Lakeside Library. A new county library will be built on Woodside Avenue near Channel Road. The 16,400-square-foot structure will replace the town’s 5,000-square-foot library, built in the 1960s. It will include a 150-seat community room, five study rooms and a Friends of the Library bookstore. It is expected to open in summer 2022. A huge thank you to all the community leaders who worked with me to make these great projects possible! Meth is death: I recently stood with other leaders of the region's Meth Strike Force to release the region’s annual meth report card. There were a record 546 local meth-related deaths in 2019. There’s no sugarcoating it: Meth is destroying lives and families in our county. These tragic deaths were unnecessary and avoidable. The strike force includes the best and brightest in law enforcement and treatment services, but we clearly need to do even more as a region to address this deadly addiction. In 1996, when we created the strike force, there were so many meth labs in San Diego County that it was known as the “Meth Capitol of the World.” That’s no longer true, thanks to the hard work of this group and the community. 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

Boost Your Spirits Through The Holidays And Beyond

(Family Features) Stress and anxiety are all too familiar to many Americans, this year especially, and the added pressure of the holiday season may provide a new set of challenges. Practicing self-care and nurturing your mental health can help you navigate these potentially isolating times, especially if you're tackling this season single. With so many other demands in life, taking care of yourself, including your emotional and mental well-being, may not always be at the top of your list. However, putting more emphasis on yourself and your needs can be achieved in small, measurable ways and may not only help boost your spirits but can affect your approach to dating, too. "We believe happy and healthy relationships start with happy and healthy individuals," said Stefan Harvalias, head of global marketing for Plenty of Fish, one of the largest global online dating companies. Harvalias points out there are a number of ways you can alleviate stress and anxiety. While there's no one magic formula that fits all, many people find coping easier with activities like these. Listen to music. Numerous studies have demonstrated the benefits of music in managing mental health. Slow, mellow music can help the mind shift into a lower gear and has even been shown to influence the body's physical state such as reducing blood pressure, pulse and heart rates. For someone with anxiety, music can be a welcome distraction from the troublesome thoughts occupying the mind. For others, music is simply a way to escape from reality and focus on something enjoyable. Talk with friends and family. Although COVID-19 may be creating physical distance, there's one way it can bring people together: by acknowledging your shared stress to one another. While the impacts of the pandemic vary greatly, everyone has been navigating uncertainty and change that comes with such a widespread event. A weekly check-in call or video chat with friends and family members can help you feel less alone with your feelings and experiences. Topics like mental health and mindfulness have risen to the surface of everyday discussions, removing a lot of the stigma they once had. Seek out tools to help you unwind. If you've never given much thought to managing your mental health, you may not know where to begin practicing better self-care, and that's OK. That's where you can benefit from resources like those available through Plenty of Fish. Knowing the toll the pandemic is taking on singles, the dating app partnered with Shine, a leading self-care app, to create two free dating-related meditations developed to help singles better manage anxiety and improve mental health and wellness. Navigating dating, work and your personal life can feel like an intense continued on page 8

Chef’s Corner Hope For The Best, Prepare For The Worst After 45 years of cooking, I’ve had my share of Thanksgiving Day disasters! I’ll never forget the Thanksgiving when the turkey wasn’t done, and my family and friends were starving. Thankfully, no pun intended, I had defrosted a package of pork chops for dinner the next day. That year we had fried pork chops, cornbread dressing with cranberry sauce, roasted vegetables, mac and cheese, dinner rolls and a vast array of desserts. One of the many things that I

learned that year, and during this stressful and unusual year, is to be thankful for the good things in life, while preparing as much as you can for the unexpected. Here are some secrets to saving your sanity and your Thanksgiving dinner if your turkey isn’t done, or other unexpected challenges arise:

HOW TO DEFROST A TURKEY: You’ll need at least 24 to 48 hours (about five hours per pound) to thaw a frozen turkey in the refrigerator. If you need to do a quick thaw, place the wrapped, frozen turkey in your kitchen sink or a large container like an ice chest. continued on page 11

Victorian Cabinet The furniture you select for your first house is usually furniture that is as old as the house. A new modern house probably has lots of windows, high ceilings, kitchens and bathrooms made with marble. Most rooms are painted with either a mixture of very bright colors or a monotone shade of white or beige. Furniture looks like the first modern designs -- simple shapes, little carving or decoration, chairs made of bent wood and metal rods, and plain rectangular storage pieces and tables. Victorian furniture with dark wood, carved and gilt trims, and metal plaques, just doesn't fit in.

Where can I go to see if they are worth anything? These would be from the 1930s or '40s. A: If the paintings are signed, search the artist's name on the internet to see if other paintings by that artist have sold. You can also contact dealers who sell paintings to see if they have heard of the artist. Prices for paintings by artists that aren't well-known depend on the desirability of the

subject and the skill of the artist. That said, some people buy paintings just because they like the colors and need something that size to fill space on a wall.

The days ! i g hol omin c are

Wow! I went to the library and stood in front of the “do it and make it yourself” section of books. I had no idea how many books there are, each filled with ideas for making presents. You need some basic skills for some of the ideas, such as knitting, sewing or woodworking. Some gifts require a few small purchases. But, most of these books offer ideas for plenty of gifts that anyone can make with stuff around the house. So...not much money for gifts this holiday season? No excuses anymore – get to work on these gifts from the hands and heart!

(Family Features) Practically every year there's at least one person on your holiday gift list that seems to have it all. One way to think outside the box is to sift through wants and needs to find something that can truly be put to use on an almost daily basis. For example, tools, binoculars, vacuum cleaners, knife sharpeners and security solutions can serve as practical gifts that give your recipient a functional piece of equipment for daily life. These types of presents show your thoughtfulness and can provide your loved one a frequent reminder of the relationship you share each time the gift is used.

juggling act. To help find balance and feel less pressure, consider listening to the "Balance Dating While Busy" guided meditation and reflect on your energy and priorities so you can make space for dating in your life. Although dating may look and feel different right now, it's still doable. Shift your mindset and reflect on ways to adapt with an option like the "Navigate Dating During COVID" guided meditation. Recognize the role of physical wellness. The mind and body are intrinsically connected, and how you take care of your body can have an impact on your mental state. This includes eating well to ensure you're getting proper nutrition, which can positively impact your mood. Additionally,

exercise releases feel-good hormones, so a quick walk around the block or a 10-minute exercise video can benefit you both physically and mentally. Give yourself permission to disconnect. When life feels uncertain, being closely tied to an information source like your smartphone can give you a sense of security, but it can also add to your everyday stress. If you're working from home, you may find you never fully shift out of work mode. However, it's easy to become addicted to refreshing your newsfeed, allowing your devices to cut into time you could spend more productively. Limit your screen time to force yourself to focus on the present and activities that bring you pleasure while allowing your brain to rest, like spending time with loved ones or enjoying a good book or movie.

The Julian News 9

California Commentary

Will Tax-Hikers Finally Get The Message? Although election results are not yet official, it is clear that Proposition 15, the $12 billion property tax hike also known as “split roll,” has failed. But, true to form, the proponents are not giving up their 42-year goal of destroying Proposition 13. Recall that the proponents – mostly public-sector labor interests – had huge advantages in this battle: A massive turnout of Democratic voters who loathed the current president, a deceptive ballot label that was devoid of the words “tax increase,” a presumably vulnerable target in the form of business property owners and a seemingly endless amount of campaign cash. But even all those advantages were not enough to push split roll over the finish line. So what are tax raisers going to do now? The first and most obvious answer is that they will try again to pass their failed split roll proposal. In fact, it was only moments after the election was called against Prop. 15 that the spokesperson for Evolve California, a far-left nonprofit that advocates for the destruction of Proposition 13 stated, “We’re really close to having a majority of California voters agreeing with us. It took us 42 years to get this point and so if it takes another two to four years to get where we want to be, then that’s what it is.” It is unclear what makes the proponents of Proposition 15 believe that the results would be any different in a political environment that is unlikely to be as favorable to them as this one. Their excuses for failure don’t make a lot of sense. For example, they blame the pandemic for the defeat and rationalize that, in the next fight, COVID-19 will be far behind us. But this argument runs counter to their own campaign ads which repeatedly relied on the pandemic as a reason why local governments and schools actually needed the funds. Although pundits will speculate endlessly about the impact of the pandemic on Prop. 15’s demise, at best, it was probably a wash for both sides.

by Jon Coupal

Are the Prop. 15 backers’ threats about resurrecting another split roll initiative in the near future to be taken seriously? We suspect that their consultants would advise them not to proceed and that it would be foolish to charge up that hill once again. After all, that strategy did not work well for General Pickett at the battle of Gettysburg. While this direct assault on Proposition 13 failed, it does not mean that progressives will cease their never-ending efforts to extract more revenue from productive segments of society. Among the possible “revenue enhancements” that have been proposed previously is another step-up in the income tax rates. But since California’s top marginal rate of 13.3% is the highest in the nation, the wealthy will either join the millions who have already left the state or supercharge their tax avoidance strategies. A slightly different “tax the rich” strategy is an outright wealth tax. Rather than tax the income of the wealthy, this tax would take a slice of one’s balance sheet every year. Again, should this foolish proposal start to gain traction, look for a massive outflow of capital from California to Texas, Nevada, Florida or a host of other states where elected political leadership rejects collectivist economic policies. Also on the table is a sales tax on services. This would be proposed under the guise of comprehensive “tax reform” of which the sales taxes on services would be but one element. In any of its forms, don’t expect that “tax reform” in California would be revenue neutral. It would be a tax increase. The defeat of Proposition 15 was a great victory for taxpayers. But one thing is certain. While the tax-and-spend lobby might think twice about pursuing property tax increases, they will seek out more tax revenue anywhere they can find it. *** Jon Coupal is the president of the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association (HJTA).

Instagram is helping turn our cell phones into portals to activism on behalf of the planet. Credit: Jeremy Levin, Pexels. Dear EarthTalk: What are the best Instagram feeds to follow lately if I’m into environmental activism and fighting climate change? -- Bill S., New Orleans, LA It’s amazing how dominant Instagram has become in the world of social media. Eco-advocates would be remiss to not make use of it to raise awareness and spur action on behalf of the planet. Given Instagram’s limited functionality, activists and groups have to be creative to make the most of the photo-dominant platform to stand out from the crowd. Here are a few of our favorite sustainabilityoriented accounts: Indigenous Climate Action uses its @indigenousclimateaction account to motivate and empower both youth and adults on climate activism by reminding them of the human connections to land, water, community, culture and the sense of responsibility towards future generations exemplified in Indigenous communities. Recent posts featured celebrations of indigenous knowledge, art and culture, and the group also hosts “virtual visits” and information-packed livestreams on Instagram. Another enlightening account is @intersectionalenvironmentalist, which spreads awareness about how and why injustices happening to marginalized communities and planet health are connected. Posts focus on social justice, environmental justice, art, and communitybuilding around inclusion and sustainability. The producers of the account also platform inspirational speakers on IGTV, Instagram’s video network. If you’re looking for informative posts displayed in eye-catching styles, check out @futureearth, which cites all its sources and will keep you updated via a variety of different post styles. Their periodic Climate Talks feature informative videos with activists, educators, scientists and green business pioneers. Meanwhile, activist Isaias Hernandez populates his @ queerbrownvegan account with aesthetically-pleasing posts on environmental justice, veganism and zero-waste. One recent post defined the term “conscious consumerism” while another addressed why climate activists tend to burn out so young. Another timely account to follow is @sunrisemvmt, the Instagram outlet for the Sunrise Movement. Organizers have used Instagram to spread their message to millions of young people who have in turn showed up at rallies, marches, sit-ins, Congressional visits and other direct-action events designed to lever those in power to make smart decisions with climate change, green jobs, sustainability and equity in mind. Finally, @climemechange uses humor to lighten the mood within the climate movement. After all, laughter has been proven to boost antibody-producing cells, reduce stress and increase blood flow, all important to make sure we keep ourselves healthy while fighting the good fight. Following this account is a good way to fight the ecodepression and climate anxiety we all suffer from, even if just a little. One way to be an eco-activist on Instagram is to share these accounts’ posts on your own stories, an easy way to spread awareness about the issues made possible by the social platforms we have today.

Combatting the Serious Effects of Digital Devices During COVID-19

(StatePoint) Screen time among children and teens has skyrocketed during the COVID-19 pandemic. In the cold-weather months, when families are more likely to be spending free time indoors, it’s especially important that parents and caregivers set schedules to help ensure safe, healthy and balanced use of digital devices, according to experts. “Digital devices and the internet have become absolutely necessary tools for kids, not only for school, but for connecting and socializing with friends. Unfortunately, these tools can often be used in unhealthy ways to fill a void left by the loss of many typical school-year routines,” says Michele Havner, director of marketing, OurPact, a screen time monitoring app for parents. Research has consistently shown that more screen time is often accompanied by health and wellness challenges like anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, poor sleep and reduced physical activity. Havner says that parents can help kids build healthier relationships with digital devices in the following ways: • Being good role models: Parents are in many cases relying on digital devices to work from home and may also be facing some of the same issues as their children, including boredom and isolation. However, they can serve as good digital role models by setting aside screenfree time for other activities, like art, cooking, music, exercise, crossword puzzles, reading and more. • Avoiding being punitive: This extended situation has been

stressful for parents and kids alike, so parents should try to take a compassionate approach to the situation. When engaging children on screen use, they can start the conversation on the right foot by acknowledging the many challenges and stressors that the “new normal” has created for young people. This is also a good time to check in about what exactly kids are doing online and whether the uptick in social media use has exposed them to negative content or cyberbullying. • Setting schedules: Screen use before bed is associated with poor sleep due to the blue light emitted by digital devices, which can delay the release of sleep hormones. If possible, cap screen usage at least 30 minutes before bedtime. While many people like to keep devices on bedside tables, consider turning bedrooms into screen-free zones. • Making it happen: Devices

have become so important to children, they may not realize the negative effects they are having on their health, making getting kids to actually put down devices often easier said than done. In fact, kids will often defy verbal limitations and warnings. Fortunately, parents can get a little outside assistance in making rules stick. One solution is OurPact, a screen monitoring app that allows parents to set online schedules. Using the app, parents can limit app access automatically for recurring activities like school or bedtime, and can block or grant internet access on a child’s device. They can even view screenshots of kids’ digital activity, helping them swiftly address usage issues like unsafe content and cyberbullying. To learn more or download, visit OurPact.com. While the new normal has meant an unavoidable uptick in screen time, parents can help kids strike a healthy balance.

When it comes to the benefits of self-care, a majority of surveyed singles reported: * 66% practice self-care regularly * 87% said self-care activities reduce stress * 78% said they feel less stressed after a self-care routine * 50% meditate * Alone time, exercise and pampering were listed as the top self-care activities "Prioritizing your mental health matters more than ever," Harvalias said. "Self-care and wellness mean something different to everyone - all that matters is that you find an outlet to disconnect and do what makes you happy." *** Be thankful for what you have; you'll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don't have, you will never, ever have enough. — Oprah Winfrey ***

Chef’s Corner

continued from page 6 Cover the turkey with cold water. Drain and refill the water every half-hour because as the bird thaws out, the water will get warmer. Using this method, the turkey will thaw at the rate of about a half-hour for each pound. PREPARING THE BIRD FOR COOKING: Remove the giblet package (neck, livers, heart, and gizzards) from inside the cavity of the bird AND check the neck cavity. Some manufacturers place the giblet package in the neck cavity and others place it inside the cavity closest to the legs. You can place the giblets in the same pan as the raw turkey to add flavor to the meat drippings. Most turkeys come with the legs already trussed (crossed and secured with a metal or plastic bracket). If you’re not going to stuff your bird, there’s no need to truss the legs, so remove the plastic or metal bracket and discard it. Trussing an unstuffed bird hinders the hot oven air from circulating inside and around the legs. This means that the dark meat will take longer to cook, and the breast meat will cook faster and dry out before the legs ever get completely done. THE TURKEY ISN’T DONE: Don’t rely on the “pop-up” timer in the turkey, as it usually means that the breast is overcooked, and the dark meat isn’t done. If the dark meat isn’t done, remove the wings and breast meat from the rest of the turkey, in one piece, if possible. Cover the breast and wing portion with foil and set it aside. Put the drumsticks and thigh portion of the turkey back into the oven to continue cooking until done. You can re-assemble the whole turkey and garnish it, or just cut it into serving portions and arrange it on a platter. STUFFING SAVERS: If the stuffing/dressing is too wet, spread it out in a thin layer on a sheet pan so that it will dry quickly. Place it back into the oven for 5 to 7 minutes. If it’s too dry, add more pan drippings or chicken broth to the mixture. If you don’t have any more drippings or broth, you can combine a chicken bouillon cube

(if you have one), along with a teaspoon of poultry seasoning, three tablespoons of butter and 1 cup of water. Cook the mixture in the microwave for 3 to 5 minutes or until it comes to a boil. Stir to combine and then add it, a little at a time, to the dressing until it’s moist. SOUPY MASHED POTATOES: You can add unseasoned dry breadcrumbs to soupy mashed potatoes to absorb any excess liquid. You can also microwave raw potatoes until soft, spoon out the potato, mash it and add it to your mashed potatoes along with some additional butter, salt and butter. GRAVY RESCUE TIPS: If the gravy is lumpy, pour it through a strainer into a new pan and bring it to a simmer, stirring gently. If it’s too thin, in a separate bowl, mix a tablespoon of melted butter with a tablespoon of flour. Bring the gravy up to a boil and whisk in the butter mixture to thicken your gravy. If the gravy is too thick, add a little more chicken broth, pan drippings, milk or a little water and butter to thin it out. BURNT OFFERINGS: If the turkey begins to burn while it’s roasting, flip the bird over immediately and continue to cook it. After the turkey is done, you can remove and discard any blackened skin and about half an inch of the meat below any burnt area. Slice the remaining breast meat, arrange it on a platter and ladle gravy over it. If your vegetables or gravy burn on the bottom, carefully remove the layer that isn’t burned into another pot or serving dish. Don’t scrape the bottom of the pan! If the dinner rolls are burned on the bottom, just cut off as much as you can, butter them, and fold them in half to cover the missing ends. Whipped cream is the perfect “make-up” for desserts that aren’t quite up to par. You can cut the top layer off a burnt pie and cover it with whipped cream. Hopefully, these tips will rescue you from any Thanksgiving Day disasters, but remember, it’s about gathering to give thanks with the people you love -- not the perfect meal! Have a blessed Thanksgiving!

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Your ruling planet, Mars, allows you to assume a sense of command that can help you turn a chaotic workplace situation into one that's orderly, productive and, yes, even friendly. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Getting a relationship that's been stuck in a rut up and running again depends on how far you want to run with it. Be honest with yourself as you consider which decision to make. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Be wary of rumors that seem to be coming from everywhere this week. Waiting for the facts before you act means never having to say you're sorry you followed the wrong lead. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) A difficult personal matter might prompt you to turn to a trusted friend to help you sort through a maze of emotional conflicts. The weekend should bring some welcome news. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Some of the new people coming into the Lion's life could play pivotal roles in future personal and professional matters. Meanwhile, an old friend might have an important message. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) A delay in getting things moving on schedule can be a blessing in disguise. Use this extra time to do more research so you can buttress any of the weaker points with solid facts. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) You might need to get involved

in a personal matter before it becomes a serious problem. Also, be wary of someone offering to mediate, unless you can be sure of his or her motives. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Taking sides in a workplace or domestic dispute could prolong the problem. Stay out and stay cool. Then you can be friends with both parties when things settle down. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) A friendship has the potential to become something more, and with this week's aspects favoring romance, you might feel that this possibility is worth exploring. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) The new job you want might require you to relocate. If so, keep an open mind and weigh all the positives and negatives before making your decision. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) A new relationship seems to be everything you could have hoped for. Congratulations. Meanwhile, it's not too early to get some feedback on that new project you're working on. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) You might have decided to get out of the fast-moving current and just float around hither and yon for a while. But you might find that the new opportunity is too tempting to turn down. BORN THIS WEEK: You believe in bringing out the best in people with kind deeds, loving words and recognition of their "special" selves.

Working Daughters Deserve Support (NAPSI)—For the approximate 23 million women who balance caring for an aging parent with going to work, and often raising children of their own, there is little recognition and not enough support. These women themselves often don’t think of what they do as caregiving; they just consider themselves dutiful daughters. Yet they average 24.4 hours of unpaid care a week, from buying groceries, to managing medication, helping with household chores, assisting their parents with bathing and dressing, and driving to appointments. Many are even providing complex medical tasks, with little or no training, such as administering injections, monitoring vital signs, caring for wounds or cleaning feeding tubes. Collectively, they provide $470 billion in unpaid care, according to the AARP. Often, these women provide this care at great cost to their careers. Working daughters, much like working mothers, may need to switch to a less demanding job, take time off or quit work altogether. They lose wages and job-related benefits costing them, on average, $304,000 in lost wages and

When businesses support working daughters, it’s good for these women, their parents and the companies themselves. benefits while spending nearly 20 percent of their own income on caregiving. To give these unsung heroes recognition and much needed support, it’s important to make the care they give compatible with their careers. With 10,000 people turning 65 every day in the United States, the caregiving workforce is only going to grow. Smart businesses must examine policies and corporate cultures to create environments where caregivers can thrive. Working daughters need flexibility, paid family leave policies and expanding eligibility requirements. They need affordable, quality eldercare options. Learn more at www. workingdaughter.com.
