California Health Officials Announce A Regional ‘Stay At Home’ Order Triggered By ICU Capacity Started Monday County officials announced on Saturday the States new Regional Stay at Home Order would go into effect Starting Monday with less than 15 percent ICU availability in the Southern California region(see map below). Regional Stay at Home Orders prohibit travel except as necessary for permitted activities, close operations for certain sectors and require 100 percent masking and physical distancing in all others Schools currently open can remain open and retailers can operate indoors at no more than 20 percent capacity to reduce exposure risk New order is a modification of the state’s initial Stay at Home Order signed in March and builds on the Blueprint for a Safer Economy As COVID-19 case rates and hospitalizations continue to rise at an alarming pace and threaten to overwhelm the health care delivery system, California health officials today announced a Regional Stay at Home Order that will be triggered if Intensive Care Unit (ICU) capacity drops below 15 percent in a given region. State health officials are tracking the state by five regions: Northern California, Bay Area, Greater Sacramento, San Joaquin Valley and Southern California. No regions currently meet this threshold but some are projected to as early as this week. When the Order is triggered in a region, it will have 48 hours to adopt the new order. Residents are required to stay at home as much as possible and minimize mixing to reduce unnecessary exposure, while still being able to do important things like go to the doctor, buy groceries, pick up take out, go on a hike, or worship outdoors. K-12 schools that are already open can remain open and retailers can operate indoors at no more than 20 percent capacity to reduce exposure risk. The five regions are: • Southern California: Imperial, Inyo, Los Angeles, Mono, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, San Diego, San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, Ventura • Northern California: Del Norte, Glenn, Humboldt, Lake, Lassen, Mendocino, Modoc, Shasta, Siskiyou, Tehama, Trinity • Bay Area: Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Monterey, Napa, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Santa Cruz, Solano, Sonoma • Greater Sacramento: Alpine, Amador, Butte, Colusa, El Dorado, Nevada, Placer, Plumas, Sacramento, Sierra, Sutter, Yolo, Yuba • San Joaquin Valley: Calaveras, Fresno, Kern, Kings, Madera, Mariposa, Merced, San Benito, San Joaquin, Stanislaus, Tulare, Tuolumne Regions will remain in the Regional Stay at Home Order status for at least three weeks once triggered. Counties are eligible to come off the Regional Stay at Home Order after three weeks if their hospital ICU capacity projected four weeks out reaches 15 percent. Counties will return to the Blueprint for a Safer Economy tier determined by their case rate and test positivity after they are eligible to exit the continued on page 3

The Chamber of Commerce tried something new to add to the holiday cheer. A Christmas lights parade through town, With al the physical distancing going on it was felt that a parade would add some smiles to the folks who where still in town from down the hilll and those locals who wanted to brave the evening and witness from Main Street. After staging in the library parking lot, and checking their electrical connections - the twelve vehicles headed out and began their loop(s) through town. Participants included the Julian Women’s Club, The Trinagle Club, Lion’s Club, Orchard Hill Country Inn, Regulars Wanted and others who just wanted to get out and have a good time plus maybe show off some of thier own Christmas spirit. The folks who came to watch had the chairs, warm coats and a little something in the thermos to ward off any chill. They gathered on the corners between parked cars and parked on the street. The pararde itself came down Main Street turn down the highway, back up Fourth down to ‘C’ Street and did it again, and again. The faces on the children made a memorable event and plans will be made to make it an annual event - although for photographic purposes we will have add directions for participants to turn off their headights. (note to Chamber: check with the CHP if that’s ok for the 3 blocks of town) So far even with the COVID-19 restrictions it appears that the Christmas spirit is beginning to take hold throughout the town. The next three weeks could test that with the new “Stay at Home” orders for all to follow.

TREE N C A O I M L U J E HT Local Experience Since 1988PANY Hanukkah or Chanukah The Jewish Festival of Lights

Chanukah and Hanukkah are technically both correct spellings. The latter is the most popular variation nowadays. According to, there are multiple ways of spelling it because of transliteration, which is when you translate a language that uses different characters or symbols into another language. The name of the Jewish holiday comes from Hebrew, so the spelling doesn’t have an exact equivalent in English.

Hanukkah is the Jewish Festival of Lights and it remembers the rededication of the second Jewish Temple in Jerusalem, in Israel. This happened in the 160s BCE/BC (before Jesus was born). (Hanukkah is the Hebrew and Aramaic word for 'dedication'.) Hanukkah lasts for eight days and starts on the eve of the Kislev 25, the month in the Jewish calendar that occurs at about the same time as December. Because the Jewish calendar is lunar (it uses the moon for its dates), Kislev can happen from late November to late December. In 2020, Hanukkah will be from the evening of Thursday, 10th December until the evening of Friday, 18th December. During Hanukkah, on each of the eight nights, a candle is lit in a special menorah (candelabra) called a 'hanukkiyah'. There is a special ninth candle called the 'shammash' or servant candle which is used to light the other candles. The shammash is often in the center of the other candles and has a higher position. On the first night one candle is lit, on the second night, two are lit until all are lit on the eighth and final night of the festival. Traditionally they are lit from left to right. A special blessing, thanking God, is said before or after lighting the candles and a special Jewish hymn is often sung. The menorah is put in the front window of houses so people passing can see the lights and remember the story of Hanukkah. Most Jewish families and households have a special menorah and celebrate Hanukkah. Hanukkah is also a time for giving and receiving presents and gifts are often given on each night. Lots of games are played during the time of Hanukkah. The most popular is 'dreidel' (Yiddish) or 'sivivon' (Hebrew). It's a four sided top with a Hebrew letter on each side. The four letter are the first letter of the phrase 'Nes Gadol Hayah Sham' which means 'A great miracle happened there' (in Israel, 'there' is changed to 'here' so it's 'Nes Gadol Hayah Po'). Each player put a coin, nut or chocolate coin in a pot and the top is spun. If the letter is 'nun' (‫ )נ‬come up nothing happens, if it's 'gimel' (‫ )ג‬the player wins the pot, if it's 'hay' (‫ )ה‬you win half the pot and if it's 'shin' (for 'there' ‫ )ש‬or 'pe' (for 'here' ‫ )פ‬you have to put another item into the pot and the next person has a spin! Food fried in oil is traditionally eaten during Hanukkah. Favourites are 'latkes' - potato pancakes and 'sufganiyot' - deep fried doughnuts that are then filled with jam/jelly and sprinkled with sugar. The Story behind Hanukkah About 200 BCE/BC Israel was a state in the Seleucid Empire (an empire ruled under Greek law) and under the overall charge of the King of Syria. However, they could follow their own religion and its practises. In 171 BCE/BC, There was a new King called Antiochus IV, who also called himself Antiochus Epiphanes which means 'Antiochus the visible god'. Antiochus wanted all the empire to follow continued on page 12

Stay At Home Order continued from page 1

Regional Stay at Home Order. “We are at a tipping point in our fight against the virus and we need to take decisive action now to prevent California’s hospital system from being overwhelmed in the coming weeks,” said Governor Newsom. “By invoking a Stay at Home Order for regions where ICU capacity falls below 15 percent, we can flatten the curve as we’ve done before and reduce stress on our health care system. I’m cleareyed that this is hard on all of us -- especially our small businesses who are struggling to get by. That’s why we leaned in to help our small business owners with new grants and tax relief to help us get through this month. If we stay home as much as possible, and wear masks when we have to go to the doctor, shop for groceries or go for a hike, California can come out of this in a way that saves lives and puts us on a path toward economic recovery.” “We know what a struggle this pandemic has been for so many California families, but our actions have saved countless lives,” said Dr. Mark Ghaly, California Health and Human Services Secretary. “This targeted action will preserve vital ICU beds for people who need them -- whether they’re COVID-19 patients or someone who has suffered a heart attack or a stroke.” “Staying home for three weeks is a sacrifice, but if every Californian did that for a month, we could stop this disease in its tracks,” said Dr. Erica Pan, Acting State Public Health Officer. “This public health order strikes the balance between saving lives, providing essential services that we all rely on and still allowing Californians to participate in lower-risk outdoor activities that are crucial for our physical and mental health.” The terms of the Regional Stay at Home Order closely mirror the March order, with some variations. What does the Regional Stay at Home Order do? The Regional Stay at Home Order would be in effect for 3 weeks after the trigger and instructs Californians to stay at home as much as possible to limit the mixing with other households that can lead to COVID-19 spread. It allows access to (including travel for) critical services and allows outdoor activities to preserve Californians’ physical and mental health. This limited closure will help stop the surge and prevent overwhelming regional ICU capacity. In any region that triggers a Regional Stay at Home Order because it drops below 15 percent ICU capacity, all operations in the following sectors must be closed: • Indoor and Outdoor Playgrounds • Indoor Recreational Facilities • Hair Salons and Barbershops • Personal Care Services • Museums, Zoos, and Aquariums • Movie Theaters • Wineries • Bars, Breweries, and Distilleries • Family Entertainment Centers • Cardrooms and Satellite Wagering • Casinos • Limited Services • Live Audience Sports • Amusement Parks The following sectors will have additional modifications in addition to 100 percent masking and physical distancing: • Outdoor Recreational Facilities: Allow outdoor operation only without any food, drink or alcohol sales. Additionally, overnight stays at campgrounds will not be permitted. • Retail: Allow indoor operation at 20 percent capacity with entrance metering and no eating or drinking in the stores. Additionally, special hours should be instituted for seniors and others with chronic conditions or compromised immune systems. • Shopping Centers: Allow indoor operation at 20 percent capacity with entrance metering and no eating or drinking in the stores. Additionally, special hours should be instituted for seniors and others with chronic conditions or compromised immune systems. • Hotels and Lodging: Allow to open for critical infrastructure support only. • Restaurants: Allow only for take-out or pick-up. • Offices: Allow remote only except for critical infrastructure sectors where remote working is not possible. • Places of Worship: Allow outdoor services only. • Entertainment Production including Professional Sports: Allow operation without live audiences. Additionally, testing protocol and “bubbles” are highly encouraged. The following sectors are allowed to remain open when a remote option is not possible with appropriate infectious disease preventative measures including 100 percent masking and physical distancing: * Critical Infrastructure * Schools that are already open for in-person learning * Non-urgent medical and dental care * Child care and pre-K When does a Regional Stay at Home Order end? The Regional Stay at Home Order will be implemented regionally once there is less than 15 percent ICU capacity remaining in the designated region. After three weeks from the start of the Stay-atHome Order, the following criteria would apply: 1. End for a county in a region if the region’s ICU capacity projected out four weeks (from three weeks since the Stay-at-Home Order started) is above or equal to 15 percent. Each county in the region would be assigned to a tier based on the Blueprint for a Safer Economy. 2. Remain in effect in a county if the region’s ICU capacity projected out four weeks (from three weeks since the Stay-at-Home Order started) is less than 15 percent. The order would remain in effect until the region’s ICU capacity meets criteria (1) above. This would be assessed on a weekly basis. Can we people go outside? Members of the same household are encouraged to maintain physical and mental health by safely going to a park, a beach, hike, walk or bike ride when safe to do so and socially distanced. Californians are also encouraged to keep connected with loved ones virtually.

At Last! Board of Supervisors Approves Night Sky Friendly Lighting Ordinance For Julian And Borrego Springs. The County Board of Supervisors voted unanimously to adopt new rural lighting standards that will help preserve night skies free from light pollution and allow Julian to join Borrego Springs as a recognized International Dark Sky Community.The Julian Dark Sky Network and its many allies have been working for almost 5 years to preserve the spectacular night sky that draws many visitors to our nature rich mountain community. While Borrego Springs and Anza-Borrego Desert State Park already have been designated by the International Dark Sky Association as dark sky places, the new “Zone C” regulations will help preserve the night sky as future development occurs. Lead by Supervisor Diane Jacob, The BOS approved the new regulations at their Oct. 28 meeting. This was an important step that will now pave the way for Julian to also earn the International Dark Sky designation, hopefully by the end of the year. Very importantly, it also creates a path for other communities in unincorporated SD County to become a Zone C area and seek the Dark Sky Community designation. The final vote to confirm adoption of the new lighting standards took place on Nov. 18, and was a routine consent vote after the initial unanimous vote. One of the most excited about the approval was Doug Sollosy, a Julian resident who recognizes the value of a place where people can come to see the wonders of the universe in a clear, dark sky that is not compromised by light pollution. With strong community support, Sollosy and his group worked with the county to develop the new lighting standards. The new lighting regulations were an important element required to gain the dark sky designation. Both Borrego Springs and Julian enjoy dark skies that allow residents and visitors to see many of the wonders of the heavens like a brilliant Milky Way, a passing comet, or a spectacular meteor shower. Light pollution in urban areas seriously hampers night sky viewing and Sollosy feels strongly about preserving this natural treasure. Light pollution can rob people of seeing the beauty of the night sky but also negatively impacts wildlife by disrupting their sleep, hunting and migration patterns. He started living part time Julian seven years ago, and in 2017 became a full time resident. It was the clear night skies that attracted him to make Julian his principal place of residence. “There are lots of people who have never seen a dark sky and have no idea of what it’s like. There are some areas of the world where there is essentially no night because of light pollution,” Sollosy said. According to Sollosy, the hardest part of gaining the dark sky designation was changing county lighting regulations to create standards to preserve darkness while providing necessary lighting. “The biggest issue is the color of lights, but also awareness and we find that most people are happy to learn how to be more efficient with lighting to preserve the night sky,” Sollosy said.He cites a few examples, such as using motion lights instead of constant illumination, or security lighting that is more diffused and effective, and store lights that go off once a business closes. “People are not required to make changes immediately, but as lighting is replaced or there is construction, the new, more efficient lightings standards will apply,” Sollosy said. The County Planning and Development Services people have been very helpful and cooperative in this effort,” Sollosy said. The International Dark Sky Association meets twice a year to review applications and decide if the right conditions are in place to confer the dark sky designation. Approval of the new lighting regulations has been one of the the biggest challenges in Julian getting the coveted designation. Lynne Jarman, an active member of the JDSN, just completed the task of creating and submitting the application to the IDA. The Julian community is very much behind the dark sky designation. Robin Boland is the manager of the Julian Visitor Center and Executive Director of the Julian Chamber of Commerce. She sees the designation as a positive for the community. “We get lots of calls from out of the area during the summer about places to go around here to see the night sky and the Milky Way,” she said. “Julian is famous for apple pie, but this would also be one more reason to love this area and come to visit.” Local Realtors, businesses, the Volcan Mountain Foundation, Julian Historical Society all support the effort and the Santa Ysabel Nature Center has even installed a dark sky exhibit for visitors. Area wildlife groups, such as the Julian Wolf Center support efforts to reduce light pollution because of the negative impact it has on wildlife by altering sleep cycles if too severe. The Borrego Springs Dark Sky Coalition has also given significant support and assistance to the Julian effort. Sollosy said there is a core group of 8 local people involved in the dark sky effort through The Julian Dark Sky Network ( that he and others founded 5 years ago. The group hosts star parties several times a year, but now because of COVID-19 has shifted to virtual star parties for the time being. One of their biggest events is the annual Julian Wonderfest in August that attracts over 1,000 people and includes an evening a star party. Sollosy said because of covid 19, no celebration has yet been planned, but “I am certain we will celebrate next year after we receive the dark sky designation. A lot of people are motivated and really excited.” The designation as a dark sky community with be quite an accomplishment, as well as a significant attraction for visitors. “We are only an hour away from a major city and that’s unusual for a place with dark skies. This will be a real asset for the people of San Diego,” Sollosy said.

Self-Care Strategies to Help Stay Healthy This Holiday Season (Family Features) With the COVID-19 pandemic added to the typical cold and flu season, many Americans are wondering what they can do to protect themselves and others this holiday season and how to respond if they get sick. "As we enter this cold and flu season, it's so important to practice self-care," said Dr. Ian Smith, a physician, best-selling author and host of "The Doctors." "Key preventative measures like washing your hands often and

covering your nose and mouth with a tissue or the inside of your elbow when you cough or sneeze can be extremely effective in preventing the spread of germs. With COVID-19 also in the picture, there are a lot of questions on everyone's mind around how to stay healthy and correctly identify and treat symptoms of the cold and flu or COVID-19." Flu vs. COVID-19 If you get sick this season, your first question will likely be whether it's the flu or COVID-19.

Both the flu and COVID-19 are contagious respiratory illnesses caused by viruses. The flu is caused by the influenza virus and COVID-19 is caused by a coronavirus called SARS-CoV-2. Some of the symptoms of flu and COVID-19, like fever and cough, are similar, making it difficult to tell the difference based on

symptoms alone. Testing may be required for a proper diagnosis. If you have questions or concerns about your symptoms or about COVID-19, consult your health care professional. Cold and Flu Treatment For the common cold or flu, there are a variety of products continued on page 12

Back Country Happenings Skip The Holi-Daze How To Spend Added Time Making Memories

(Family Features) Making time to reconnect with loved ones is a wish topping many lists this holiday season, so set aside the chaos and commit to doing more this year. More of what you truly enjoy, that is. These time-saving holiday hacks from the Chinet(r) brand can help curb your time commitments so you can focus on personal connections and celebrating good cheer with loved ones instead. Spread out prep time. If you're busy putting the final touches on a meal as guests begin to arrive, you'll miss out on the excitement as the party begins. Rely on tricks to spread your meal preparation out over the days before your event, such as making sides and casseroles ahead of time and freezing them so all you have to do on the big day is pop them in the oven. Mashed potatoes are a notorious last-minute time suck, so make them early in the day and keep them warm in a slow cooker. Just add a bit of cream and stir periodically to keep them soft and fluffy. Simplify cleanup. After enjoying a meal surrounded by loved ones, there's no reason to halt the conversation while you slip away to bring order back to the kitchen. Cover dishes and put perishables away then return to your guests for the quality time you deserve. If you use disposable tableware, there's even less to worry about later. For example, Chinet Classic White products make cleanup easy so you can spend more time with friends, family and guests. The plates and bowls are strong

• On Dec. 10, 1690, a nearmutiny forces the Massachusetts Bay Colony to issue the first paper currency in the Western Hemisphere. Soldiers were typically paid in coins, but shortages forced armies to temporarily issue IOUs -- in one case, in the form of cut-up playing cards. • On Dec. 7, 1787, in Dover, Delaware, the U.S. Constitution is unanimously ratified by all 30 delegates to the Delaware Constitutional Convention, making Delaware the first state of the modern United States. Government under the U.S. Constitution took effect on March 4, 1789. • On Dec. 9, 1921, an engineer at General Motors discovers that when he added tetraethyl lead to gasoline, it eliminated the knocking sound of internal-combustion engines. In the 1970s, the Environmental Protection Agency phased out leaded gasoline due to health concerns. • On Dec. 8, 1941, Jeannette Rankin, the first woman elected to Congress and a lifelong pacifist, casts the sole Congressional vote against the U.S. declaration of war on Japan. She also had voted against U.S. involvement in World War I. • On Dec. 11, 1978, a half dozen masked robbers raid the Lufthansa Airlines cargo building at JFK Airport in New York, making off with more than $5 million in cash ($20 million in today's dollars) and almost $1 million in jewelry. • On Dec. 12, 1989, Leona Helmsley, nicknamed the "Queen of Mean," is sentenced to four years in prison, 750 hours of community service and a $7.1 million tax-fraud fine in New York. Helmsley once quipped that "only the little people pay taxes." • On Dec. 13, 2003, in Seattle, the iconic Hat 'n' Boots Tex Gas Station is hauled away from the spot where it had stood for almost 50 years. The 44-footwide Stetson hat had perched atop the filling station's office, while the 22-foot-tall cowboy boots housed the men's and the women's restrooms. © 2020 Hearst Communications, Inc.

enough to serve the heaviest, messiest meals with style then you can simply toss them when you're done. Shop local for shortcuts. Local businesses are feeling the crunch of 2020 in a big way, but you can give them a boost while doing yourself a time-saving favor. Pick up a pie or specialty dessert from a local bakery. Inquire about family-size sides from the family restaurants in your community. Also remember to check with school-age children you know, as many seasonal fundraisers offer pre-made holiday desserts and other treats you can share with guests with minimal effort. Get out of the house. If you've spent too much time this year looking at your own surroundings, getting away from it all may lift your spirits while saving the hours you'd pour into getting your home ready for entertaining. Community groups with their own facilities often have space available to rent, and these spaces are typically large enough to maintain social distancing requirements and are subject to rigorous cleaning protocols. Alternately, if you're keeping the guest list small, renting a vacation home offers the opportunity to turn the seasonal celebration into a short road trip for added memories and joy. With some simple decorations, you can create a fun atmosphere for your holiday event and skip the headaches of hosting at home. Go short and sweet. If the idea of a full-fledged dinner event is stretching you too thin, look for festive ways to scale back. For example, a dessertonly party lets you gather with loved ones and keep the focus on the company rather than the food. Plan themed stations with different styles of desserts and consider asking family members to help stock each station with

their own favorite treats. Add a touch of style by placing a stack of Chinet Cut Crystal dessert plates at each station so guests can sample all their favorites while they mingle. The collection also includes cups and stemless wine glasses ideal for a beverage table or single servings of desserts like mousse or parfaits. Find more ways to manage your time this holiday season at Celebrate Like It's 2020 After a whirlwind of a year, this holiday season promises to be a little different than those of years past. Instead of lamenting what won't be the same, treat this year as an opportunity to deck the halls in a whole new way. Invite technology to the party. With group gatherings and travel restrictions likely to continue in many parts of the country through the holiday season, there's a good chance you may not be able to gather with everyone you'd like. However, the

pandemic has shown how simple it can be to use technology to stay connected. Go ahead and schedule a virtual party or make time to jump on a video chat during your celebration to include those who can't be there in person. To help add a touch of normalcy to the festivities, consider packaging and sending small boxes of party essentials in advance to each person who'll join the virtual party. Make giving a group effort. Helping those in need is a tradition many people honor around the holidays, but this year your giving is likely to be especially impactful. When you join efforts with family or friends, your contributions can go even further, and it's a way to bond over your shared experience. Consider volunteering as a group at a food pantry, adopting a family or two together or finding another local cause that could use some extra help and count your blessings while you enjoy the extra time together. Simplify gift-giving. As families grow, the gift lists get longer. However, especially in a year like this, not many wallets have expanded to keep up with the pace. Forgo the time and money required to buy for everyone in the family and start a new tradition by drawing names and instead of buying smaller items for a lot of people, put a little more toward a single item your recipient truly wants or needs.

My Thoughts Still Looking

by Kiki Skagen Munshi

Remembering Other Power Outages Communist Romania in the 1980s was ruled by a megalomaniac, Nicolae Ceausescu (that’s Chow SHESS koo in case you wondered) who, among other things, wanted to erase the country’s external debt. One way to do that was to stop paying Russia for imported heating gas and the way to do THAT was to stop importing the gas. This gas was for the cities, most of them, whose buildings, residences, stores, government, were all centrally heated. That is, the government could turn off the heat, or turn it wa-a-ay down and save lots of foreign exchange. Which, during the winter of 1984-5, one of the coldest on record, made existence pretty uncomfortable, even for us diplomats. Our building, the American Library (read Center with library, auditorium, exhibit space and some 1500 users per week, a window to the West where all others were closed) rarely got above 11 C, which is 51.8 F which is pretty cold for an office. We did, at least, have electricity (though using it for heaters was banned) which meant it wasn’t cold and dark, it was just cold. We diplomats could get away with more than ordinary Romanians so at home we had two small electric heaters. We also unhooked the exhaust hose for the dryer, turned it in to the house, and turned the dryer on. We also put water on the gas stove but the flame was hardly enough to boil it. Eventually we were all shipped out, family by family, for a week in Paris to warm up which was nice, even in the dead of winter, but, then, it was back to Bucharest and icy streets (though since the Romanians weren’t allowed to drive private cars during the winter they were pretty empty) and the cold. Always the cold. Last week for many of us in Julian it was both cold and dark, going Bucharest one better. We got a lot of sleep—multiple blankets and four cats go a long way to making a comfortable bed. We thought about the old days here when there wasn’t central heating OR electricity, though in the old days there was a woodstove (now décor, since it won’t measure up to current emission standards) but today’s battery operated REI lantern, bought for exactly such times, was certainly easier to use than kerosene. Also safer. We slept well those dark nights. The total absence of electronic light and noise? The extra heavy blankets (by chance an article in the Washington Post over the weekend addressed that possibility)? The total lack of desire to get up in the morning into a cold, dark house with coffee made by bashing beans in a (Romanian) mortar and pestle then boiling them in water on the gas stove….anything for caffeine!? Who knows? But it’s likely we’ll be able to explore that possibility again because the power company has no faith in the ability of its lines to withstand wind. It’s still much better than Communist Romania. Trust me.

2020’s Best Holiday Gifts For Healthy Living (StatePoint) Personal wellness is top of mind for many people these days, making some of the most thoughtful holiday gifts those that enable friends and families to live healthy, ecofriendly lives.

If you have read my past few columns, then you know that I am on a mission to find my safe deposit keys. I haven’t seen them for maybe five years and I don’t seem to have a safe deposit key place in my house, car or in my purse. This morning I emptied some shoe boxes and a canvas shopping bag that were hanging out in my bedroom. I’m very good at filling shoe boxes with things that don’t have places to live at that particular moment. In one shoe box I found four books that I can give away and one I want to keep. I found dust jackets for two books that didn’t belong to the books in the box. In the bag I found paperwork for the first semesters that each of my grandchildren began elementary school. Since they are now in third and fifth grade, I decided to throw away their kindergarten bus schedules and other papers that were only pertinent to that year. I’ve had that canvas bag so long that on the outside was printed Alpha Beta. I worked at Alpha Beta in 1969. For those of you who are old enough to remember Alpha Beta grocery stores; did you ever notice that they never sold liquor, yet they always located their stores next door to liquor stores? Tonight I opened my filing cabinet. I placed some extra copies of my grandchildren’s birth certificates in the drawer and then I removed about ten pounds of papers from the drawer. I found all of my bank statements from VIB bank. I can’t even remember how long ago they left Julian. They may not even exist anymore. I found pay stubs going back to the late nineteen nineties which were easy to throw away, but I couldn’t bring myself to throw out twenty-year-old tax returns. I still see more papers I can toss out though. The file for vehicles probably has some papers for cars that we no longer own and business papers for businesses that we haven’t operated for more that twenty years. I’m sure I will find deeds for properties that I haven’t owned since the 1970s. This idea of throwing out papers is getting easier as I progress. As I get rid of so many papers, I have three things in mind. The first reason is the family history that I’ve found tucked away. These papers are real treasures to me. The second is making my house more fire safe and the third reason is that when I’m gone my family won’t have to go through all of these useless papers. Today I found a small manila envelope with my name on it and inside were some letters. One of the letters was typed by my Mom just a few days before my Dad left for the Korean War where he was killed while returning to Okinawa after a bombing mission. Of course, she had no idea that she would scarsely see him ever again while he was getting in his flight time before going overseas. Three letters that my dad had written to family members were especially interesting since I understood the meaning of the dates on them. He wrote the first two during 1944 about bombing missions to Iwa Jima. According to his letters, he flew at least twenty-five bombing missions to Iwa Jima. My husband Mike reminded me that it was my Dad and men like him who made it possible for the U.S. flag to be raised on Iwa Jima February 23rd, 1945. One letter that was written by my Dad was possibly the last letter he wrote before he died. It’s difficult for me to read the date on it, knowing what I know about that date. That letter was written in 1952 and he died on the night of October 31st, 1952. My brother was born that same night in San Diego. Is it irony that the day I found those letters, Mike received a telephone message at the Julian News office from a woman in Florida whose father was one of two survivors of my Dad’s B-29 plane crash. That man, Ebbie LeMaster died about fifteen years ago. Like me though, his daughter has been going through old papers and found letters that she thought would interest me. Oh Yes! One was a letter that my Mom wrote to Ebbie after Dad died and one was a letter that her grandmother wrote to my Mom and didn’t send. Katie LeMaster and I talked on the telephone for maybe an hour and it was a wonderful conversation. We both knew some of the details of my Dad’s crew and the fateful flight. Together, we now know more details. How did Katie find me? That in itself is an interesting story. Katie is a retired Navy Nurse. While in the Navy, her job was to look for people, so she is very good at it. Meantime, I’m glad to have found so much of my family history. The next time we have to evacuate, and yes, we know there will be a next time, I will have these family treasures together with the addition of the letters that Katie is sending to me. When my Mom died in 1987, my older sister took all of our family photos saying that she would make copies. She didn’t make those copies and the photos burned up in the Cedar Fire in 2003. So many of us are guilty of putting off jobs that we should get done right away. I know that I’m often guilty. I don’t want to lose any more family records because of fire or for any other reason, so when the letters come from Katie I will immediately make copies and send them to my brother and sister. My brother can then spread them around to his children if he so chooses. Finding these family treasures makes me feel very wealthy. These are my thoughts.

Six Ways To Protect Your Mail And Packages

(NAPSI)—Every day, the U.S. Postal Inspection Service works to protect your mail, USPS employees and USPS facilities. It’s just as important to it as it is to you that these items reach their destinations safely, and the Post Office could use your help to keep your mail and packages safe. Here are a few tips to consider this holiday season: 1. Don’t leave your delivered mail and packages unattended. You wouldn’t leave important items sitting on the front seat of your unlocked car overnight. So don’t leave your mail and packages sitting in mailboxes or on front porches for any length of time. 2. Going out of town? Hold your mail at the Post Office. You can sign up for Hold Mail service on if you plan on being away from home for a few days. Your letters and packages will be held securely at your Post Office until you pick them up or request they be delivered to your home. 3. Plan ahead. Ship using Hold for Pickup. If you are sending packages, you can choose the Hold for Pickup option on The packages will be safely held at the recipient’s local Post Office until they can pick it up. If you are expecting a package, you can redirect it to your Post Office by selecting Hold for Pickup using Intercept a Package under Track & Manage on 4. Customize the delivery. If you are expecting something you know will not fit in your mailbox and you won’t be home to receive it, you can authorize the carrier to leave it in a specified location. Visit, enter the tracking number in Track a Package, and select Delivery Instructions. 5. Secure the shipment using USPS Special Services. Signature Confirmation helps ensure the package ends up in the right hands by requiring a first initial and last name at the time of delivery. For your most valuable packages, you can opt for Registered Mail service. Registered Mail receives special handling from the time it’s mailed until the time it’s delivered. 6. Monitor your front door. If you have a home security camera system, and you catch any mail thieves in the act, save the video and alert the Postal Inspectors.

Keep Kids Safe From Medicines Around the House This Cold and Flu Season (StatePoint) During the cold and flu season and amid the COVID-19 pandemic, there will be more medicines in homes being used to treat all kinds of symptoms. It is important to remember that you can keep curious kids safe by keeping medicine up and away and out of sight and reach. Approximately 50,000 young children are brought to the emergency room each year because they got into medicines left within reach, according to recent statistics published in the Journal of American Medical Association. This cold and flu season could present some additional hazards. “Families with their curious children are spending more time at home together to help stop the spread of COVID-19. It’s imperative that all medicines are kept up and away and out of sight and reach to avoid accidental ingestion and an unnecessary trip to the emergency room,” says Anita Brikman, executive director of the Consumer Healthcare Products Association Educational Foundation. The Up and Away campaign, an initiative of PROTECT, in partnership with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Consumer Healthcare Products Association Educational Foundation, aims to prevent accidental ingestion of medicine by educating families about how to safely keep medicine out of the sight and reach of young children. They’re advising parents and caregivers continued on page 8

Chef’s Corner Aromatic Holiday Gifts From The Kitchen

Gifts from the kitchen are easy and inexpensive to make and are always welcome during the holidays. Sachets and potpourri make beautiful and aromatic Christmas gifts. They can be fashioned from a variety of herbs and potpourri, and are simple to make. Bath sachets can be put directly into the tub or tied to the faucet so that the hot water passes through the herbal mixture as the bath is drawn. Sachet bags also may be placed

inside clothes drawers, tucked into the corners of couches or armchairs, or placed inside of closets to freshen up a closed space. Any number of creative and inexpensive combinations may be used to make potpourri. Spices, flowers, essential oils, your favorite perfume, dried

herbs and citrus peels all make a wonderful potpourri. Using a fixative -- such as a tincture of benzoin, styrax or orris root -- will extend the life of the perfume and ingredients. Most fixatives can be purchased at craft stores or ordered online. These easy-to-make recipes continued on page 11

Clever Table

A table has four legs and a flat top -- except when it is designed by a clever cabinetmaker. Freeman's Auction in Philadelphia sold an unusual rosewood table with two partial shelves built below the 20-inch square tabletop. It is decorated with carved dragons on the brackets and a spider and fly inlay of mixed metal and mother-of-pearl. The AngloJapanese inlaid rosewood table was made by A. and H. Lejambre of Philadelphia around 1880; the company produced work from 1865 to 1907. Similar tables are in several museums.

about this table and its value? A: Game tables were popular during the 18th and 19th centuries -- first in England, and then in the United States. Cabinetmakers designed clever tables suitable for writing letters and for pastimes like playing cards, chess or backgammon. The tables looked like regular tables when not in use. Some had a hinged top that folded, swiveled or slid open to reveal a playing surface. Others had a game board inlaid on top. The Williams-Kimp Furniture Co. started in Grand Rapids in 1923. It was purchased by Baker Furniture in 1951. The company made reproductions of American Federal furniture including dining sets, secretaries, desks, chairs and pieces like your game table.

Most people start shopping and wrapping gifts after the Thanksgiving holiday and continue until Christmas Eve. The well-known song “The Twelve Days of Christmas” tells about gifts given and received from December 25th until January 5th. The next day is January 6th, the day Christians believe the Three Kings brought gifts to the Holy Child.

Whether you’re at home or away, keep medicines in child-resistant containers. If you must put medicines in other containers, such as pill organizers, only do so if they’re child-resistant. • Never leave loose pills on the counter or tables and keep medicines in child-resistant containers until right before taking them.

Dear Santa, I’ve been very good this year...

People with disabilities may be better able to get and keep good jobs than many realize. (NAPSI)—As Americans celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), it’s worth acknowledging the increased support options available to people with disabilities who want to work. Since 1999, Social Security’s Ticket to Work (Ticket) Program has helped?thousands of Social Security disability beneficiaries find their way to financial independence. The Ticket Program can connect you with free, individualized employment services to help you decide if working is right for you, prepare for the workforce, search for a job and stay employed. If you choose to participate, you can receive services such as career counseling, benefits counseling, job training and job search assistance from State Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) agencies and authorized providers known as Employment Networks (EN). Some ENs offer specific types of support services while others have experience serving certain populations. Adults (ages 18 through 64) who receive Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) due to a disability are eligible to participate. If you feel ready for work, don’t let the fear of immediately losing your benefits stand in the way. Social Security rules and programs known as Work Incentives may make it possible for you to explore working while maintaining access to some or all of your benefits payments and your Medicare/Medicaid coverage. If your disability interferes, you may be able to return to benefits without a new application. Because each person’s circumstances are different and there are a variety of Work Incentives, job seekers are encouraged to consult a Benefits Counselor. These specially trained professionals can help you understand how employment will affect your benefits. This could be the year to find out what’s possible for you, Visit the website to learn from a score of Ticket Program participants who traded their disability payments for a paycheck and improved their self-confidence and financial independence with help from the Ticket Program. For over 20 years, the Ticket Program has helped thousands of people find their path to a better future. It can help you find yours. To learn more, call the Ticket to Work Help Line at 1-866-968-7842 or 1-866-8332967 (TTY), Monday through Friday, 8?a.m. to 8?p.m. ET, or visit

children’s reach and sight. • Keep young children safe by putting all medicines carried with you, including those in purses, bags, pockets, or pill organizers, out of their sight and reach. • More than 80% of grandparents say they keep their medication in the same place as usual when their grandchildren visit their house, and 72% keep

them in their purse or bag when they visit their grandchildren, according to a University of Michigan poll. Whether you’re a grandparent or another visitor to a home with children, don’t be shy about asking for a safe place to put your medicines (including those kept in purses, bags or pockets) that’s out of reach and sight of curious young kids.

• Save the Poison Help number: 1-800-222-1222, in your home and cell phones so you’re always prepared.

California Commentary

Plenty To Be Thankful For A popular meme making the rounds shows a row of PortaPotties engulfed in flames. Underneath is written, “If 2020 Were a Scented Candle.” No two ways about it, 2020 has been a very bad year for millions of Americans who have suffered from all the fallout associated with the pandemic. Many have been furloughed or lost their jobs entirely while others lost loved ones. It is doubtful that anyone hasn’t been negatively affected in some way from what has been a difficult year. It’s even worse here in California, as hard as that might be to believe. We have the highest poverty rate in the nation when the cost of living is taken into account, and both citizens and businesses are leaving the state in distressing numbers due to high taxes, high unemployment, burdensome regulations and deteriorating public safety. To add insult to injury, we have clueless political leaders who issue edicts while they themselves ignore those rules. While they expect us to remain shut down, they take trips to Hawaii, go to hair salons and attend dinners at high-end restaurants. And yet, there are a few things for which California taxpayers can actually be grateful this Thanksgiving season. First and foremost is the successful defense of Proposition 13 by the defeat of Proposition 15, the so-called “split roll” initiative. For 42 years, Proposition 13 has remained essentially intact despite countless efforts to weaken it. The split roll proposal, advanced mostly by publicsector labor unions and radical progressive organizations, was the most serious challenge to homeowners in four decades. The importance of the Prop. 15 victory is difficult to overstate. The proponents had several advantages that made this election cycle their most favorable for weakening Prop. 13, and yet they still lost. While tax-and-spend interests will surely continue to pursue higher taxes, such as even higher

by Jon Coupal

income taxes and sales taxes, it is doubtful that another assault on property owners will occur again any time soon. Taxpayers are also thankful for the result of other ballot measures. A proposal to permit more rent control in California was soundly rejected, which is good news for those who believe in rational, market-based housing policies that actually incentivize more residential construction. Voters also approved an initiative that allows app-based drivers to retain their status as independent contractors, a blow to an ill-advised state law that has restricted economic freedom. Perhaps now Assembly Bill 5 will be fully repealed. But being thankful does not mean taxpayers can let their guard down. The California Legislature still has progressive supermajorities in both the Assembly and the state Senate. An even bigger threat may appear in the form of proposed constitutional amendments emanating from the Legislature. We saw this with Proposition 19, a billion-dollar tax increase on parent-child transfers of property. The complex measure, regrettably, was narrowly approved by voters who may not have been aware of what was in the fine print. Still, California taxpayers can be grateful that we still have the power of the initiative, referendum and recall. Although these tools can be abused by powerful special interests, in the hands of taxpayers, they are a critical weapon to affect positive change for fiscal restraint and open government. Finally, for all of its failed political leadership and foolish public policies, we should be grateful to be citizens of California. While we sympathize with those millions of former residents who have fled to less oppressive states, let’s appreciate that we have the tools to make this even a better place to live.

The big environmental groups may have been a little slow off the starting blocks when it comes to cultivating diversity within, but they are working on it. Credit: Clay Banks, Unsplash. This issue was in the news recently when 13 current and former staffers from the National Audubon Society, a leading environmental non-profit, spoke out against the organization’s management for maintaining “a culture of retaliation, fear and antagonism toward women and people of color.” One employee who quit voiced his perceptions of an uncomfortable reaction in the mainly white and male executive board when issues surrounding the lack of women and people of color came up. David Yarnold, President and CEO of Audubon, has rebutted the claims and has brushed off any responsibility for the actions and behaviors that people have attributed to him around issues of diversity. “Audubon is not the first environmental organization to face allegations of racial inequity and most likely will not be the last,” says Andrés Jimenez, Executive Director of Green 2.0, a non-profit dedicated to increasing racial diversity within green groups. “The responsibility of creating a culture of diversity, equity and inclusion falls on the leadership of every organization,” he adds. “It should never be the burden of employees of color to have to fight uphill battles and face intimidation or harassment in order to accomplish something as fundamental as equal treatment and transparent processes for accountability.” Dorceta Taylor’s 2014 study The State of Diversity in Environmental Organizations detailed bias along gender, racial, and class lines within 293 environmental groups. Key findings included that men were still more likely than women to occupy powerful positions in environmental organizations, and that while significant progress had been made on gender diversity, the gains had mostly gone to white women. Additionally, the state of racial diversity was lagging far behind gender diversity. “Homogeneous workplaces arise because of adherence to particular cultural norms, filtering, network structure and recruitment practices,” reported Taylor. “These are forms of unconscious or inadvertent biases that can lead to or perpetuate institutional homogeneity.” In the intervening years since Taylor’s landmark study, several environmental groups have made strides toward becoming more inclusive and diverse. To wit, the Environmental Defense Fund (EDF) has implemented training workshops on implicit bias. Meanwhile, the Wilderness Society’s innovative “Urban to Wild” program works to make nature more accessible to city dwellers and people of color in urban communities. Additionally, the group has been working to increase racial and ethnic diversity through paid internships. Another example is the Resources Legacy Fund (RLF), which moved its base to a bigger city and expanded its outreach to local schools and colleges in order to attract staff from more diverse backgrounds. And it’s not your granddaddy’s Sierra Club anymore: The environmental group that started it all back in 1892 recently adopted a comprehensive Multi-Year Equity Plan and Workplan Guidance. “In the 21st century, the success of environmental causes will be based on our ability to transform into more just, inclusive and relevant organizations and movements,” concludes Green 2.0’s Jimenez.

4 Tips For A Productive 2021 (Family Features) This year has taught many workers a thing or two about being productive when offices and homes blend into one. As the calendar turns to 2021, consider these key products and processes to stay productive next year. Find a system (and stick to it): Creating an organizing system is an easy way to ensure your at-home workspace is ready for optimal productivity. Designate space to house all your work items - a drawer, cabinet or box - and keep work items organized by type (pens, papers, computer gear, etc.) At the end of each day, transitioning to "offline hours" can be easier when you have a place to stow your work items. Start your day clean: Studies have shown cleanliness has a direct impact on productivity. Yet, many people struggle to find the time and energy to clean, especially at the end of a busy day at home. An option like The DEEBOT T8 from Ecovacs provides a hands-free cleaning experience, complete with the time-saving benefits of an all-inone robot vacuum and floor mop, along with TrueDetect technology to avoid tangling in small objects. Easily controlled via an app, just set it to clean before bed and wake up to a tidy workspace. Break up your day: With so continued on page 12

Holiday Gatherings If you're hosting or attending a gathering this holiday season, check local and state health sites for restrictions on gathering and guidance beforehand. Take appropriate measures to protect yourself and others, and remind fellow guests to take similar precautions. Don't attend or host an event if you're sick or have had close contact with someone who is sick. If feasible, keep the event outdoors or ensure the space is well ventilated with open windows. Limit the number of attendees so safe social distancing can be maintained between people not from the same household, and wear masks when less than 6 feet apart or indoors. Frequent hand washing and limiting food preparers or servers can also help reduce the spread of germs.

A Productive 2021 continued from page 10

many hours at home in front of a computer, workdays can get a little monotonous. Break up the day to make working from home feel as "normal" as possible - shower in the morning, take a walk or drive to coffee then make time for at least two breaks throughout the day. Some people have found success with the Pomodoro Technique, which is breaking your day up into 25-minute chunks of work, with 5-minute rest periods. If you continue to work until you feel like taking a break, odds are you'll overwork yourself until it's too late to take the "big break" you had in mind. Bookend your days with mindfulness: At the beginning and end of each workday, do a 3-5-minute mindfulness meditation. Before signing on to work for the day, allow your mind to fully focus on the day's tasks at-hand. Signoff by doing another mediation to end the day and let go of any worries or stresses you might have. Incorporating this tactic into your daily routine can help create a natural boundary from work and home while also restoring peace of mind.

continued from page 2 Greek ways of life and the Greek religion with all its gods. Some of the Jews wanted to be more Greek, but most wanted to stay Jewish. The brother of the Jewish high priest wanted to be more Greek, so he bribed Antiochus so he would be come the new High Priest instead of his brother! Three years later another man bribed Antiochus even more to let him become the High Priest! To pay his bribe he stole some of the objects made of gold that were used in the Jewish Temple. On his way home from having to retreat from a battle, Antiochus stopped in Jerusalem and he let out all his anger on the city and the Jewish people. He ordered houses to be burned down and tens of thousands of Jews were killed or put into slavery. Antiochus then went to attack the Jewish Temple, the most important building in Israel to Jews. The Syrian soldiers took all the treasures out of the temple and on Kislev 15 in 168 BCE/BC Antiochus put up a status of the Greek god Zeus in the center of the Jewish Temple (but it had the face of Antiochus!). Then on Kislev 25 he desecrated the most holy place in the temple and destroyed the Jewish holy scrolls. Antiochus then banned practising the Jewish faith & religion (if you were found out you and all your family were killed) and made the Temple into a shrine to Zeus. There were many Jews killed for their faith. Soon afterwards a Jewish rebellion started. It began when a 'former' Jewish Priest, called Mattathias, was forced to make an offering to Zeus in his village. He refused to do so and killed a Syrian Soldier! Mattathias's sons joined him and killed the other soldiers in the village. Mattathias was an old man and died soon after this, but his son Judah then took charge of the freedom fighters. Judah's nickname was 'Maccabee' which come from the Hebrew word for hammer. He and his troops lived in caves and fought an undercover war for three years. They then met the Syrians in open battle and defeated them. When they got back to Jerusalem, the Temple was in ruins and the statue of Zeus/ Antiochus was still standing. They cleaned the Temple. They rebuilt the Jewish altar and on Kislev 25 in 165 BCE/BC, exactly three years after the statue was put up, the altar and Temple was rededicated to God. There are several theories about why Hanukkah is celebrated over eight nights. One legend says that when Judah and his followers went into the Temple there was only enough oil to burn for one night, but that it burned for eight nights. Another story says that they found eight iron spears and put candles of them and used them for lighting in the Temple. Hanukkah and Christmas The dates of Hanukkah and Christmas might well be associated, because Kislev 25 was when the Temple was rededicated and the early Church chose December 25th because they took over the birthday of Greek god Zeus/Roman god Jupiter.
