With all the restrictions this year it bcame evident back in October that the traditional Country Christmas that the Julian Chamber of Commerce put on at Pioneer Park was not going to be the same. Budget cuts due to - well, you know - made bringing in the boom truck to decorate the big tree in front of the Museum an issue, combined with the need to upgrade/replace much of the lighting proved it to be a fools errand. So the Chamber board pivoted to a different concept. No all day celebration in the park, but they still wanted to have a tree as a focal point of the towns decorations. After much discussion and some negotiations the open area infront of the Julian Garage was decided on. The big spectacle of the lighting the tree would be reduced to only a few. Still having the Merchant of the Year (Scott Brown from Don’s Market) do the honors. So without the usual fanfare they gathered at the tree and precisely at 5:30 Saturday night Scott waived his majic wand (courtesy of his wife) and the holiday season was officially started.

Scott Brown, Merchant of the Year and his daughter are joined by the Miss Julian’s and Keith Krawiec from the Chamber of Commerce board to wave his majic wand and light this years tree.

Medical Clinic Update

Supervisors Approve More Funds For Businesses Impacted By COVID-19

by Michael Hart

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

The County Board of Supervisors today voted to provide more stimulus funds to businesses forced to close indoor operations after the region was placed in the Purple Tier. At a special meeting, the Board gave the green light for $20 million in general funds to be added to the Small Business Stimulus Grant Program established in May. The funds will be available to businesses and nonprofit organizations in the following industries: • Restaurants • Gyms and fitness centers, including yoga studios • Movie theaters • Museums • Zoos and aquariums • Event planners (weddings, festivals, fairs, etc.) Businesses in these industries had to close or stop indoor operations to limit the spread of COVID-19. The financial relief will help them to reverse some of the disproportional impact on their operations and keep some from having to close permanently. The County’s five supervisorial district offices will review and recommend applicants for $4 million in funds each. Applications are available at the Small Business Stimulus Grant Program website. Award recipients will also be posted on the site. Businesses that submitted a previous application do not need to reapply. This is the fourth time the Board has voted to provide stimulus grant funds for restaurants and other small businesses. In past months, the Board approved a total of $27.5 million in Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security or CARES Act funds.

Simple Packing Tips To Ship Holiday Gifts (NAPSI)—Packing and shipping gifts across town, across the country or around the world for the holidays is easy, provided you follow simple tips from the United States Postal Service. To ensure items arrive safely, leave space for extra cushioning inside the package. Stuff glass and fragile, hollow items, like vases, with newspaper or packing material to avoid damage. Mailing a framed photo? Remove the glass and wrap it separately. Items powered by dry-cell batteries may turn on during handling and make noises or emit light. Make sure the device is turned off or package the batteries separately, preferably in the original manufacturer’s packaging. For rules on shipping Hazardous, Restricted and Perishable Mail, please see Publication 52. Once the box is packed, make sure the address is printed clearly on the outside. Include all address elements, such as apartment numbers, directional information (ex: 123 S Main St. Apt. 2B), and the ZIP Code. Don’t forget to include a return address. Also, place a card inside the package that contains the delivery and return addresses. This ensures the package can be delivered or returned should the mailing label become damaged or fall off. For information on sending packages internationally, visit the USPS International Shipping page. Also, check for restrictions on what can and can’t be mailed. The Postal Service has a website that provides information on hazardous, restricted and perishable mail. It’s advised to not reuse boxes because they can weaken in shipping. Instead, you can get free Priority Mail and Priority Mail Express boxes at your local Post Office. If customers choose to reuse boxes, it’s important to note that logos and all extraneous markings or labels must be covered or removed. If you can’t get to the Post Office to mail your packages, the ClickN-Ship feature and other online services allow customers to order free Priority Mail boxes, print shipping labels, purchase postage and even request free next-day Package Pickup. Priority Mail includes delivery between one to three days, Priority Mail Express includes delivery between overnight up to two days. Tracking is also included. For more information and restrictions visit usps.com. The Postal Service also offers shipping tips in a variety of online “how to” guides. Each video is less than three minutes long and shows how to address packages, ship packages and pack a box so items arrive safely.

The California State Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) has placed a payment suspension on BorregoHealth’s Medi-Cal claims due to the ongoing investigation by the Department of Justice. In a statement Chief Medical Officer and Interim CEO Edgar Bulloch MD stated, “Our entire Executive Team alongside our appointed legal counsel and elected officials are working diligently to appeal this decision. At this time, we are working on scheduling a meeting with DHCS to discuss our case and our hope is that we get this on the calendar as early as next week. We continue to work with health plans to ensure we have their full support to prove to DHCS the need for Borrego Health to continue to provide healthcare services to our most vulnerable patients. The goal is to have DHCS lift the current suspension of payment until the Department of Justice has made a final decision on next steps. “ Back in October BorregoHealth offices and clinic in Borrego Springs were paid a visit by the FBI and California Department of Justice. The offices of Premier Healthcare Management Corp. and two dental offices that have contracts with Premier Health and BCHF were also targets of the sealed warrants. Dr Bulloch also stated’ “We ask that you continue to provide the services that our patients have come to expect from us in an effort to remain committed to our mission. Know that the challenges we have been presented with are being faced together as an organization, team, and family. As more information is made available to us, we will keep you updated every step of the way. This has not seen a direct impact on services offered at the Julian Clinic. The clinic continues to operate under COVID-19 restrictions. Although most paitent interactions have switched to virtual and the waiting room remains closed.

TREE N C A O I M L U J E HT Local Experience Since 1988PANY From The Native Perspective: The True Story Of Thanksgiving

Too often the story of the 1621 Thanksgiving is told from the Pilgrims’ point of view, and when the Wampanoag, who partook in this feast too, are included, it is usually in a brief or distorted way. In search of the Native American perspective, we looked to Plymouth, where the official first Thanksgiving took place and where today the Wampanoag side of the story can be found. Plimoth Plantation is one of Plymouth’s top attractions and probably the place to go for the first Thanksgiving story. It is a living museum, with its replica 17th century Wampanoag Homesite, a representation of the homesite used by Hobbamock, who served as emissary between the Wampanoag and Pilgrims, and staffed by 23 Native Americans, mostly Wampanoag; 17th century English Village; and the Mayflower II, a replica of the ship that brought the Pilgrims to Plymouth. According to a Plimoth Plantation timeline, the Mayflower arrived at Plymouth Harbor on December 16, 1620. The Pilgrims settled in an area that was once Patuxet, a Wampanoag village abandoned four years prior after a deadly outbreak of a plague, brought by European traders who first appeared in the area in 1616. The museum’s literature tells that before 1616, the Wampanoag numbered 50,000 to 100,000, occupying 69 villages scattered throughout southeastern Massachusetts and eastern Rhode Island. The plague, however, killed thousands, up to two-thirds, of them. Many also had been captured and sold as slaves. And yet, when the Wampanoag watched the Mayflower’s passengers come ashore at Patuxet, they did not see them as a threat. “The Wampanoag had seen many ships before,” explained Tim Turner, Cherokee, manager of Plimoth Plantation’s Wampanoag Homesite and co-owner of Native Plymouth Tours. “They had seen traders and fishermen, but they had not seen women and children before. In the Wampanoag ways, they never would have brought their women and children into harm. So, they saw them as a peaceful people for that reason.” But they did not greet them right away either. The English, in fact, did not see the Wampanoag that first winter at all, according to Turner. “They saw shadows,” he said. Samoset, a Monhegan from Maine, came to the village on March 16, 1621. The next day, he returned with Tisquantum (Squanto), a Wampanoag who befriended and helped the English that spring, showing them how to plant corn, fish and gather berries and nuts. That March, the Pilgrims entered into a treaty of mutual protection with Ousamequin (Massasoit), the Pokanoket Wampanoag leader. Turner said what most people do not know about the first Thanksgiving is that the Wampanoag and Pilgrims did not sit down for a big turkey dinner and it was not an event that the Wampanoag knew about or were invited to in advance. In September/October 1621, the Pilgrims had just harvested their first crops, and they had a good yield. They “sent four men on fowling,” which comes from the one paragraph account by Pilgrim Edward Winslow, one of only two historical sources of this famous harvest feast. Winslow also stated, “we exercised our arms.” “Most historians believe what happened was Massasoit got word that there was a tremendous amount of gun fire coming from the Pilgrim village,” Turner said. “So he thought they were being attacked and he was going to bear aid.” When the Wampanoag showed up, they were invited to join the Pilgrims in their feast, but there was not enough food to feed the chief and his 90 warriors. “He [Massasoit] sends his men out, and they bring back five deer, which they present to the chief of the English town [William Bradford]. So, there is this whole ceremonial gift-giving, as well. When you give it as a gift, it is more than just food,” said Kathleen Wall, a Colonial Foodways Culinarian at Plimoth Plantation. The harvest feast lasted for three days. What did they eat? Venison, of course, and Wall said, “Not just a lovely roasted joint of venison, but all the parts of the deer were on the table in who knows how many sorts of ways.” Was there turkey? “Fowl” is mentioned in Winslow’s account, which puts turkey on Wall’s list of possibilities. She also said there probably would have been a variety of seafood and water fowl along with maize bread, pumpkin and other squashes. “It was nothing at all like a modern Thanksgiving,” she said. While today Thanksgiving is one of our nation’s favorite holidays, it has a far different meaning for many Wampanoag, who now number between 4,000 and 5,000. Turner said, “For the most part, Thanksgiving itself is a day of mourning for Native people, not just Wampanoag people.” At noon on every Thanksgiving Day, hundreds of Native people continued on page 5

Understanding Medicare

Get Educated During Medicare’s Annual Enrollment Period (NAPSI)—Over 61 million people are enrolled in Medicare. As of October 15, individuals age 65 and older can make changes to their coverage and enroll in a Medicare plan during the annual open enrollment period, which lasts until December 7. During this time, consumers can change from one Medicare Advantage or prescription drug plan to another. If you’re already enrolled in original Medicare, you can switch to a private Medicare Advantage plan, or you can drop your existing Medicare Advantage plan to return to original Medicare. Making sense of Medicare may not be easy for many and can often be overwhelming if you don’t know where to find information. In fact, nearly half (47%) of Americans don’t have familiarity with Medicare Advantage insurance, according to research from The Center for a Secure Retirement and Bankers Life. How you enroll or switch Medicare plans may be different this year. Enrollment sometimes happens face-to-face where it’s easier to ask questions. However, whether you’re meeting in-person or virtually, you can familiarize yourself with the available options and make a more informed decision. 1.Get educated. Increase your confidence in your Medicare knowledge and decisions by getting educated. Boomers can view an interactive guide on myHealthPolicy.com to help them decide. This guide includes quizzes, infographics, and more to help consumers better understand Medicare and choose the best solutions for their needs. 2.Shop and Compare Plans. Review your current Medicare health and prescription drug coverage and make changes if it no longer meets your needs. There are a lot of resources on the Internet. You can check out myHealthPolicy.com, a new online health insurance marketplace, designed to help potential beneficiaries learn about and enroll in Medicare Advantage and prescription drug plans. This site helps consumers compare, buy or switch plans easily with personal assistance and one-on-one consultation with a licensed insurance agent. 3.Get consultations. An important feature of myHealthPolicy.com is that consumers can be helped – virtually or in-person – by a licensed insurance agent in their community who is familiar with local provider networks and can bring that knowledge into the decision process. Or you can also quickly connect with a telesales agent who can answer immediate questions. Medicare is always a major topic for Boomers, and this year’s concerns about COVID-19 may complicate things. By using the tools and assistance provided by myHealthPolicy.com, you can begin receiving answers to your questions, as well as guidance on selecting the Medicare option that works best for you. myHealthPolicy.com is operated by K.F. Agency, Inc., which is a licensed and certified representative of Medicare Advantage HMO, PPO and PFFS organizations and stand-alone prescription drug plans with a Medicare contract. myHealthPolicy.com and K.F. Agency, Inc. are not connected with or endorsed by the United States government or the federal Medicare program. *** There is no greater glory than love, nor any greater punishment than jealousy. — Lope de Vega ***

As COVID Anxiety Grows, Tips To Avoid Crisis And Conflict

(StatePoint) Among mask mandates, social distancing, outspoken political views and personal challenges from the COVID-19 pandemic, there is a heightened risk for public spaces turning into places of conflict. According to experts at the Crisis Prevention Institute (CPI), the global leader in de-escalation training for over 40 years, mentally preparing and practicing responses can best ensure nonconfrontational experiences. Potential challenging situations could include disagreements over mask requirements or social distancing, family gatherings, shopping lines, acclimating to more densely populated work environments or navigating political discussions. “Having trained teachers, nurses and others who interact with the public, and being a social worker myself, I know the immense need for de-escalation training in the workplace and in everyday life,” says Amber Belle, a global CPI trainer. “Learning conflict-prevention techniques can help ensure you have positive experiences in your community.” CPI has identified probable areas of conflict and how to best mitigate tension. They recommend embracing four simple techniques to prevent and reduce conflict: 1. Avoid judgment. Understand

that everyone has different life experiences and may be overwhelmed with struggles and anxiety from things you know nothing about. Listen and focus on the feelings behind the message. 2. Don’t take it personally. Another person’s behavior is not about you. You are likely not the true target of someone’s behavior. Tell yourself, “This may not be about the two of us; it may be about other issues in their life.” Or repeat to yourself, “I’m going to be respectful. I’m going to be respectful.” 3. Control your reactions. You can’t control another person’s behavior, but you can control how you react. Avoid using facial expressions, gestures and language that could make another person feel anxious or defensive. 4. Be prepared if you have to engage. Have a plan to acknowledge and redirect. Here are some things you could potentially say: • “Yeah. This year has been difficult on everyone.” • “I can understand where you’re coming from.” • “We’ll all be glad to have this pandemic behind us.” Over four decades, CPI has trained more than 15 million individuals in its techniques, spanning many industries and

My Thoughts

EAST OF PINE HILLS

by Michele Harvey

Going Through Stuff

I really need to find my safe deposit keys and I have no clue where they are in my office, or anywhere else. When I began looking for them I assumed they were in a folder with all of the other information I received when I opened my accounts at the bank. It was so long ago that now I’m thinking that maybe I didn’t get a folder. Maybe I received by Kiki Skagen Munshi a legal sized envelope. So now what? Do I begin my search all over again? Though I’m very organized when I drive and go on my errands, my office is a mess. Some things don’t seem to have a place to be and Back in the day it wasn’t called “a Santa Ana Event”. It was the so far I can’t figure out what to do with them other than putting them East Wind, usually cold, mostly miserable, roaring through the trees in files and moving the files around. For instance, when husband Mike was entered into the San Diego from a cold but bright blue sky.

This may have been because houses didn’t use through their file cabinet to see what she needed to keep and what as much power then as now. Or perhaps because there were only could be thrown away. She had no idea what an exhausting job about a tenth as many houses….or fewer. Or because the power she was in for. My uncle kept every receipt for every item he ever lines were sturdier.

If not, some of the Raggedy Anns are small enough to hang as Christmas ornaments. As I’ve sorted through papers I found cards and letters that I want to keep.

We are past Thanksgiving and on our way to either Christmas which lands on December 25th as always, Hanukkah which will be celebrated from December 10th through December 18th this year or Kwanzaa which is a wonderful festival beginning December 26th and going through January 1st 2021. I have friends who celebrate at least one of these holidays. This is why you will often hear me say “Happy Holidays!” Time to spruce up the house? My house never has seemed spruced up. Even when it wasn’t so full of items and papers it wasn’t that kind of a house. It’s a dark house and this year I plan to make it brighter. Right after I solve the mystery of my safe deposit keys. These are my thoughts.

From The Native Prespective

continued from page 2 from around the country gather at Cole’s Hill, which overlooks Plymouth Rock, for the National Day of Mourning. It is an annual tradition started in 1970, when Wampanoag Wamsutta (Frank) James was invited by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts to give a speech at an event celebrating the 350th anniversary of the Pilgrims’ arrival and then disinvited after the event organizers discovered his speech was one of outrage over the “atrocities” and “broken promises” his people endured. On the Wampanoag welcoming and having friendly relations with the Pilgrims, James wrote in his undelivered speech: “This action by Massasoit was perhaps our biggest mistake. We, the Wampanoag, welcomed you, the white man, with open arms, little knowing that it was the beginning of the end.”

Top Tips For College Entrance Exam Success

While many paintings of “the First Thanksgiving” show a single long table with several Pilgrims and a few Native people, there were actually twice as many Wampanoag people as colonists. It is unlikely that everyone could have been accommodated at one table. Rather, Wampanoag leaders like Massasoit and his advisors were most likely entertained in the home of Plymouth Colony’s governor, William Bradford.

‘TIS THE SEASON TO SAVE.

Winter will be here soon. It’s a good time to make the most of your energy plan. On Time-of-Use, energy prices outside 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. are the lowest. So be sure to shift some of your energy use earlier or later, like doing laundry or running the dishwasher. It can save you money.

Chef’s Corner The Feast Doesn’t End With Thanksgiving

Ah, Thanksgiving -- cleaning, shopping, cooking and entertaining guests for hours! While Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays, I’ve embraced the day after the holiday as my time to feast in peace. My traditional after-Thanksgiving breakfast consists of a cereal bowl full of warm leftover turkey, ham, corn and dressing with cranberry sauce. One of my favorite after-feast lunches is a turkey and ham sandwich with cranberry sauce and any other leftovers I can fit between two slices of

toasted bread! In my opinion, Thanksgiving leftovers are a national treasure. If you store your leftovers safely and properly, you can enjoy them in a variety of ways for several days. During mealtime, do not let the turkey sit out for more than two hours after it has been cooked. For safe storage, remove the

stuffing and de-bone the turkey. Store the turkey in shallow containers in the refrigerator, because shallow containers allow the turkey to cool faster, preventing the growth of harmful bacteria. Unless you freeze the leftovers, be sure to use the turkey and stuffing within 3-4 days. Leftover gravy should be used within 1-2

Iron Clown Head

Part of the fun of bidding at auctions is seeing unusual, and perhaps useless, antiques selling for a lot of money. A very noticeable iron head of a clown with a mask, about 20 inches high, was offered in a Michaan's Auctions in Alameda, California. It was marked "J.T. Dickman, Pat'd Sep 19, 1911." Only the clown, squirrel and rabbit shooting gallery target shapes with the Dickman patent information are listed for sale online. The clown sold for $12,000. Iron tools were the only antiques to be pricey before 1950. Tongs, building supports, fences, hardware, boot scrapers,

This heavy 20-inch-tall head is made of iron. It was painted red and white. The auction catalog said it was a clown because of the pointed hat with a tassel. It’s a not-veryfunny shooting gallery target that pictures a clown with a mask. The strange item was wanted by many collectors, and the high bid was $12,000. safes and windmill weights were selling at antique shows. By 1900, iron was used to make frying pans and attractive pieces like bookends, doorstops, large

statues of animals and garden furniture. Iron can be molded or shaped by hand, is heavy and durable, and is often used for manhole covers. *** Q: I inherited two unusual 14-karat gold and pearl tuxedo studs from my father's estate. They are square with what looks like a lace-edge handkerchief folded over in a triangle shape. A long pin with a pearl head is stuck through the "handkerchief." I don't want to scrap them. How can I find their value for resale? A: Even though you don't want to "scrap them," it helps to know the meltdown value in order to determine the resale value of gold or silver items. You can take the studs to a jeweler to see how much the gold weighs and to find out the current meltdown value. The pearl also adds value. Jewelers often measure gold in troy ounces, which are heavier than standard ounces. The meltdown value of 14-karat

gold fluctuates, but the value of a troy ounce is about $1,850. The jeweler may offer to buy them for a lower price because the jeweler must be able to make a profit. Most tuxedo stud sets include at least four studs and a pair of cufflinks. Since you only have two studs, they can't be worn with a tuxedo shirt. *** CURRENT PRICES Backgammon game, Bakelite, yellow chips, cups, dice, cork playing surface, flowered case, 19 x 14 inches, $90.

Pastor Cindy Arntson

The Santa Ana winds are blowing outside as I write this. The sound of them can be soothing like waves on the shore. The winds make an especially lovely display at the church where they are blowing the leaves down from the cottonwood trees and making them skitter along the ground. I would enjoy this windy weather more if it wasn’t for its association with fire danger. I have vivid memories of the 2003 fire. My brother and his family were evacuated from their home in Lakeside. My parents had to evacuate in Escondido. The fire came so close it destroyed the homes across the street from their home. I remember the dark skies and the ash floating in the air at our home in Rancho San Diego. But I didn’t really understand living with the threat of fire until I moved here. I didn’t know how grief lingers long after a devastating fire and how the experience of such a significant loss can shape the identity and perspective of a community. I deeply respect the courage and resilience of the residents of Julian who experienced that devastation and rebuilt, who carried on in spite of ongoing risk. My husband and I are learning how to be prepared to evacuate, how to protect our property, how to avoid starting fires and to stay informed about current fire threats without living in fear. The high cost of fire insurance, the periodic power outages, the news of devastating fires across the West this year, like the sound of Santa Ana winds, are persistent reminders of the potential threat to things and people we hold dear. Finding the balance between caution and contentment in relationship to fire danger is similar to the balance we seek in facing other threats in our lives – threats from traveling in a car, threats from COVID, threats from pollution and global warming, for example. I learned years ago that having too much fear requires too much energy and effort to try to protect ourselves. There is only so much we can reasonably do to stay safe driving a car, to avoid catching COVID, to keep the food we eat healthy. We must do some things but we can’t do everything. My faith helps me in this regard because when I’ve done as much as I feel able to do, I can trust God to do the rest. This helps me accept things beyond my control. I believe it is also important to put trust in one another. When I’ve done as much as I can to protect myself from a very real threat, I can hope/trust others are also doing their part. In addition to staying realistic about what I’m able to do and to decreasing my anxiety, this way of thinking inspires me to keep doing my best for the sake of others, as well as myself.

Create A Pet-Friendly Home This Holiday Season (Family Features) This year, holiday gatherings may look different than celebrations in years past. With traditions and large gatherings up in the air, pet parents can take some comfort in knowing they can still celebrate with their pets. Before the festivities begin, however, it's important for pet parents to ensure their homes are as pet-friendly as possible. Consider these tips from PetSmart's resident veterinarian Jennifer Freeman, DVM, and training expert Jodie Havens, CPDT-KSA, to keep pets happy and healthy this holiday season. Teach Good Table Manners Table manners aren't just for humans. Help prevent begging at the table by refraining from giving your pup food or attention. When you sit down for a meal, place your pet in a crate or pen,

or encourage him or her to go to a special place like his or her bed or a comfortable chair. "Divert your pup's attention from tempting treats on the holiday table by providing an activity, such as a long-lasting chew or a puzzle toy," Havens said. If you don't crate your pet during your holiday meal, avoid sharing human food under the table. "Table scraps such as gravy and stuffing may look harmless, but even small amounts can lead to serious health issues," Freeman said. Instead, offer pet-friendly treats that look and taste like the holidays. For example, Simply Nourish Dog Treats come in turkey and cranberry flavors that are alternatives to the real things. If you choose to indulge

your pup with a little bit of human food, you can serve small amounts of white-meat turkey breast, pumpkin, cranberries and yams. Keep your pet away from scallions or chives, onions,

garlic, grapes or raisins, cooked bones and anything high in fat. Create a Zen Space The holidays can be hectic, and pets are prone to picking up on stress in the household.

Even just one or two guests or stressed out pet parents can give a pet anxiety. Freeman recommends providing pets with a safe getaway. "Stress and extra people in the home may cause your pet to act differently and even show signs of anxiety," Freeman said. "To set up your pet's retreat, use a crate or pen he or she is comfortable with, offer blankets or his or her favorite bed and place a few treats or chews inside." Exercise Caution When Decorating While families may be brightening up their homes this holiday season, it's important to ensure decor such as candles and seasonal plants are placed out of your pet's reach. Flickering candles can be intriguing and seasonal plants like holly and poinsettia are poisonous to dogs

and cats. "Try providing a tall cat tree or scratcher near the holiday tree to redirect your kitty to an appropriate climbing apparatus," Havens said. "The Merry & Bright Holiday House Cat Scratcher can help satisfy your cat's instincts to scratch in fun, holiday fashion." Extra decor sometimes means more electrical cords, which can be tempting "chew toys" for your pet. Freeman recommends pet parents take special care to ensure electrical cords for festive lighting are not accessible by taping them down or covering them to help prevent injuries. Also remember to keep glass ornaments, tinsel, pinecones and light stands out of reach of your furry friend. For more pet-friendly tips for the holiday season, visit petsmart.com.

California Commentary

The Harms Of Proposition 19 Will Soon Be Clear

by Jon Coupal

This column has previously described Prop. 19, which barely passed with 51 percent of the vote, as a steak laced with cyanide. It may look good, but you don’t want to eat it. While there are some benefits from expanding property tax “portability” to allow homeowners to transfer their Proposition 13 base-year value to anywhere in California, the cost of this benefit is outweighed by the damage it will inflict on families planning to transfer property from parents to children. Few voters were aware of this downside of Prop. 19. Specifically, beginning on February 16, 2021, no longer will parents and grandparents be able to transfer their property to their children or grandchildren without triggering a massive increase in property tax liability. These “intergenerational transfer” protections — placed in the California Constitution in 1986 and 1996 with overwhelming support from voters — have been sharply cut back. Under the 1986 measure, a parent could transfer a primary residence and up to $1,000,000 of assessed value of other property to their children, and such properties would see no change in their tax bill when transferred. They would retain the Prop. 13-protected base-year value for property tax purposes. But under Prop. 19, that only remains true if both the parent and the child use the property as their primary residence. None of the paid advertising about Prop. 19 alerted voters that they were losing important taxpayer protections. In fact, the primary sponsor of the bill, the California Association of Realtors, spent $50 million on campaign ads claiming it was beneficial to taxpayers, not disclosing the billion-dollar property tax increase. Their deceptive tactics were successful and will undoubtedly advance their underlying motivation of churning real estate sales. But Prop. 19 is bad public policy. It was placed on the ballot by the Legislature with

the passage of Assembly Constitutional Amendment 11. It rushed through the Legislature at lightning speed without going through the extensive analysis and public review typically associated with a legislative constitutional amendment. The ACA 11 language was amended on June 20, 2020, and the amendment fully cleared the Legislature on June 26, 2020 (technically past the legal deadline for the November 2020 ballot, which necessitated additional legislation to extend the deadline). The Legislature missed many policy and legal issues that would have been uncovered had the amendment gone through the regular and more extensive public review process. Among the problems now recognized is that under Prop. 19, rents will increase. Buildings owned by aging “mom and pop” landlords, when passed to their children, will incur sharply higher property taxes. Another problem for property owners is the impact of Assembly Bill 3088, which forces property owners to accept a 75 percent decrease in rent with a moratorium on evictions. It contains the unrealistic expectation that tenants will come up with a balloon payment after January 31st. Should they default, a landlord can only collect in Small Claims Court beginning March 1, 2021. Meanwhile, Prop. 19 takes effect on February 16, 2021. Families that suffer the loss of a parent will face huge property tax increases on rental property, while being unable to collect full rents. Let’s dispel the myth that everyone who takes ownership of a parent’s property is wealthy. Many such families are middleor low-income. Some rely on the rental income from inherited property to pay bills for medical care or assisted-living facilities. Prop. 19 is a painful tax increase on hundreds of thousands of ordinary Californians. *** Jon Coupal is the president of the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association (HJTA).

® Dear EarthTalk: What is Cheatgrass and when did it become such a big problem out west? -- William G., Portland, ME Cheatgrass is an annual grass native to Europe and eastern Asia that European settlers brought to North America in the late 1800s as forage for grazing their livestock. Little did they know at the time that this innocuous looking herbaceous plant would eventually wreak havoc on ecosystems across the American West, edging out native plants and creating conditions ripe for now all-too-frequent brush fires. “It probably wouldn’t have outcompeted with native vegetation if early settlers hadn’t also introduced large numbers of livestock like cattle and sheep into sagebrush country,” reports Mike Pellant, a retired Rangeland Ecologist with the Bureau of Land Management who volunteers for the non-profit Sage Grouse Initiative. “Our palatable native grasses and forbs [herbaceous flowering plants] weren’t adapted to those high levels of uncontrolled overgrazing by domestic livestock, which created a void that Cheatgrass quickly filled.” And once Cheatgrass gains a foothold, it ups the fire risk around it significantly, in part because it sets seed in the spring and by the heart of fire season, in mid- to late-summer, its shoots have dried out and become like tinder that can spark into fire with the slightest provocation. “Basically, cheatgrass is comparable to tissue paper covering the landscape—an easily-ignited fuel that carries fire quickly and spreads it rapidly,” adds Pellant. Native plants in the Great Basin have not evolved to handle such frequent burns—every five to seven years on average lately. As such, each Cheatgrass-fueled brush fire creates more open space for more of the weed to quickly colonize. And by moving into open territory before native plants have a chance to set seed, Cheatgrass ensures its dominance over the desert ecosystems it inhabits. The ascendancy of Cheatgrass is also a big problem for native wildlife as well as plants. The Greater sage grouse, Mule deer and Pygmy rabbit are just a few of the iconic desert species dependent on healthy sagebrush plants for their own survival. If sagebrush steppe landscapes go the way of the dodo thanks to Cheatgrass, so will these species and dozens of others which contribute to making the American desert such a special place. That said, there is little we can actually do to effectively stop Cheatgrass’ spread—it has already taken over some 50-70 million acres of desert across the American West. Herbicides applied widely have been effective at removing grown Cheatgrass plants, but these synthetic chemicals do nothing against the seeds already rooted in the soil—meaning the plant will sprout anew the next spring regardless. Employing all-natural soil microbes to inhibit the growth of Cheatgrass’ root system below the surface shows promise as a potential solution. But it could be years before we know whether it’s feasible to use on such an epic scale given how much Cheatgrass has already spread across the sagebrush steppe.

7 Tips for Hosting A Virtual Holiday Cookie Exchange (StatePoint) It may take a little extra time and creativity, but a holiday cookie exchange can be held virtually and it’s worth the effort according to experts. “There’s a famous quote, ‘If you do what you love, you'll never work a day in your life.’ It's so true for me as I find great joy in developing easy, flavorful recipes,” says Cindy Gilbert,

holiday cookie exchange. Find these recipes and more by visiting McCormick.com/ CookieExchange. With a little creativity and the perfect cookie recipe, you can reinvent your favorite baking traditions for a safe and festive holiday season.

Drive-In: A Big Band Christmas continued from page 4

McCormick Test Kitchen chef. “My friends have come to me for years requesting tips and tricks, and over 20 years ago, they anointed me the annual holiday cookie exchange leader. This past year has been challenging, but I knew I wanted to keep the tradition alive while following social distancing guidelines.” Here are Gilbert’s top seven tips on hosting your own virtual cookie exchange, along with her favorite delicious McCormick cookie picks. 1. Keep the virtual guest list small and local. Your family and friends’ safety is the most important thing, and no one wants to bake a ton of cookies. Aim for five to 10 people. Gingerbread Men Cookies – No winter holiday is complete without gingerbread men. They’re cute and can be decorated with raisins, cinnamon red-hot candies or royal icing. 2. Invite cookie enthusiasts. Invite people who enjoy being in the kitchen and welcome sharing their recipe secrets! Tell them they're going to be sharing the story behind their choice. Red Velvet Crinkle Cookies – This tasty recipe crinkles from the confectioners' sugar, and the deep chocolate red color and taste add up to a cookie you'll be proud to share. 3. Package cookies in separate portions. Ask participants to package each serving in individual containers or resealable bags of six cookies per serving. Easy Lemon Cookie Truffles – This is a perfect no-bake option. Lemon extract adds a bright citrus flavor to this easy four-ingredient treat that starts with store-bought sugar cookies. 4. Arrange the exchange. About an hour before the virtual gettogether, set up a table outside, in a cul-de-sac or school parking lot. Everyone can take turns grabbing their cookies quickly and safely. Or, arrange no contact porch drop-offs during a set time. Holiday Meringue Cookies – These deliciously airy, light, and low-fat meringue cookies are the perfect confection for any holiday celebration. Add your favorite food coloring for a festive twist. 5. Request the recipes. Ask guests to provide a recipe card in their individual packages, or as the host, you can compile the recipes and share through email. Double Ginger Gingersnaps – A personal favorite of Gilbert’s, these are a ginger lover's dream! Ground ginger and crystallized ginger make the flavor pop on these cookies, which are crispy on the outside and chewy inside. 6. Share stories via video conference. Many guests like to tell the stories behind their cookies. By scheduling time to connect, you'll likely hear some heartwarming or hilarious anecdotes and maybe even some helpful tidbits. Sugar Cookie Thumbprints with Spiced Jam – Inspired by a bakery treat, this holiday twist on a classic uses cinnamon or ginger-spiced jam. 7. Have fun. Take time to ask how everyone has been and give them a chance to share what other traditions they’re planning this year. While the party is about cookies, it's also about connecting, having fun and picking up a few new recipes to try. Pecan Cookie Balls – These buttery melt-in-your-mouth cookies, also known as Mexican Wedding Cakes, make a great addition to any

Boosting Holiday Cheer At Home During A Socially Distant Season (StatePoint) Unfortunately, many Americans will be unable to celebrate the holidays with their extended family and friends in person this year, making it all the more important to boost holiday cheer at home. Here are few festive ideas for getting into the holiday spirit during this socially distant season. • Don’t skip out on the decorations: You may not be hosting any houseguests, gatherings or big meals, but this shouldn’t be the year to skip out on the full-scale decorating you typically enjoy. Lights, trees, garlands, stockings and wreaths can evoke favorite memories of past seasons and invite hope for future ones all season long. You can even set up a video conference to enjoy the camaraderie of decorating with far-off loved ones. • Deck the halls with music. Add a digital piano to your holiday-scape to help elevate the mood with Christmas carols and other seasonal tunes. Consider Casio’s line of PX-S console digital pianos, which have a striking design that fit any room, décor and mood. A glossy top panel and unibody case evoke continued on page 12


December 2, 2020 boost reading comprehension and hone writing skills is to be an avid reader. This is especially effective if you select a range of reading materials, including fiction, biographies, journalism and more. While a lot has changed about education this past year, much about college entrance exams has stayed the same, and you can still get a leg up by ensuring you’re well-equipped and ready to succeed on test day.

Top Tips For College continued from page 5

full functionality will help you be speedy and accurate when it matters most. When the clock is ticking, it’s best to be holding a calculator with an easy-to-use interface, intuitive icon-based menu and natural textbook display, such as the scientific and graphic calculators available from Casio. To ace the science and math portions of the test, your pre-test preparations can also include checking out the webinars and resources available on the Casio education site: casioeducation. com. • Find study buddies: You don’t need to feel alone during test preparations. Remember, your friends are going through the same thing as you. Consider getting some pals together for a series of remote study sessions. Your group can work together

to address lingering questions and concerns, share test-taking strategies and more. You may also want to consider signing up for a virtual test prep courses or getting paired with a remote tutor.

• Read as much as possible: While memorizing vocabulary lists is one strategy for pulling out all the stops on the humanities portions of the test, the best way to adopt good grammar,

Wednesday - December 2, 2020

Volume 36 - Issue 18

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) This year, instead of jumping into the whole holiday prep scene, move in a little at a time. You'll appreciate the sense of control you're more likely to enjoy. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) The separation between the Bovine's head and heart is never as far apart as it seems. Both senses work best when they come out of logic and honesty. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) The best way to keep those preholiday pressures under control is to just say no to taking on new tasks while you're still trying to work with a heap of others. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) News means a change might be on its way, but what does it hold? Don't just ask questions; make sure you get answers you can trust. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Old friends and new have one thing in common: Both your longtime and newly minted pals have much wisdom to impart. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) With time running out, this is a good time for you to show 'em all what those Virgo superorganizational skills can do. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Librans and holidays are made for each other, especially

if children and animals are going to be part of your joyous season. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Time is getting too short to allow a spat to taint the holiday season. Restart your relationship and reschedule holiday fun times. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Seeking advice is laudable. You might learn far more than you thought you could. Stay with it. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Continuing to assess changes works toward your getting your new project up and ready. Trusted colleagues remain ready to help. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) That new situation needs a lot of attention, but it's worth it. This is a very good time for you to involve the arts in what you do. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) It might be a good idea to slow your hectic holiday pace so that you don't rush past what -- or who -- you're hoping to rush toward. BORN THIS WEEK: Others pick up on your confidence in yourself, which inspires them to believe in you and your special gifts.

What Being A Peace Corps Volunteer Is Really Like (StatePoint) For many, Peace Corps service is a first step toward a career or the continuation of a life’s work. “The idea of the Peace Corps -- that volunteers could serve their country for the cause of peace by living and working in other countries -- struck a chord with thousands of Americans in the early 1960s. That enthusiasm continues today,” says Peace Corps director, Jody K. Olsen. But what’s the experience really like? As the agency explains, selected volunteers are placed overseas in service in one of six sectors. Here’s a bit about each, as well as volunteer insights: • Agriculture volunteers work with farmers and families to increase food security and adapt to climate change while promoting environmental conservation. Anna Brettman volunteered in a Zambian village helping secure equipment needed to keep cattle disease-free. She says, “It will take time for the farmers to grow their herds again, but this should provide support for years to come.” • Community Economic Development volunteers work with development banks, nongovernmental organizations and municipalities to promote local economic opportunities. They teach skills and work with entrepreneurs to develop and market their products. “My business career took me to countries where I saw firsthand what many political and class systems do, and more importantly don’t do, for the majority in need. The agency gave me the opportunity to do something meaningful,” says Ken Kodoma, who volunteered in Namibia facilitating business workshops. • Education is the Peace Corps’ largest program area. Volunteers may inspire students in elementary, secondary, or post-secondary schools, work as resource teachers or teacher trainers, or develop libraries and technology resource centers. “I taught mathematics, biology and citizenship, led science clubs, helped increase literacy and worked with my Cameroonian counterparts in developing a book for math teachers,” says Jomara Laboy Rivera, a returned volunteer who now works in the Peace Corps’ Office of Programming and Training. • Environment volunteers lead grassroots protection efforts and strengthen understanding of environmental issues, empowering communities to make their own conservation decisions. “In the Pacific, residents deal with the effects of climate change, such as large storms, and also see ocean pollution, coral bleaching and coastal degradation up close. I liked using my creativity to spread awareness about Tonga’s waste problem to help come up with solutions there,” says Breanna Kazmierczak, a volunteer who served in Tonga. • Health volunteers promote nutrition, maternal and child health, basic hygiene and water sanitation, malaria prevention and work in HIV/AIDS education and prevention programs. “Working with the municipal water authority, we came up with a plan to maintain or improve water quality in 15 communities. Most communities wanted help in treating water to prevent parasitic infection and exploring better usage and storage techniques,” says Nicole Bryer, who volunteered in northern Peru. • Youth in Development volunteers promote youth engagement and active citizenship, including gender awareness, employability, health, environmental awareness, sports and fitness programs and information technology. “I helped with the film club at the youth center, which combined fun with opportunities for growth. We encouraged the youth to analyze the works we watched and gave them an opportunity to write and produce their own work,” says Dominick Tanoh, who volunteered in Morocco and also ran soccer and basketball workshops.
