Dr. Fauci Vaccinates Santa

Christmas Memories

TESTING AVAILABLE If you believe you have symptoms please get tested. Most testing locations do not require an appointment. To find information on a testing location near you or call 2-11 (toll free) or on the web 211sandiego.org. The County of San Diego Health and Human Services Agency is reporting yet another record number of COVID-19 cases. A total of 6,002 new lab-confirmed cases have been added in the region since Thursday, bringing the total to 126,465. Thurs = 120,463 Cases of the novel coronavirus have sharply increased since Thanksgiving and with the Christmas and New Year holidays around the corner, County health officials are concerned that no immediate end to the rise in cases is in sight. “The best gift you can give your loved ones and our frontline healthcare workers this holiday season is the gift of health,” said Wilma J. Wooten, M.D., M.P.H., County public health officer. “I urge San Diegans to follow the public health orders, avoid gatherings and wear a facial covering whenever they leave their residence so we can get this virus under control.”

Dr. Anthony Fauci personally traveled to the North Pole to vaccinate Santa Claus from the coronavirus, he said on CNN Saturday morning, in a claim that The Julian News cannot verify but certainly believes. In a very cute segment on CNN geared towards teaching children about COVID-19, Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert, addressed questions from kids about whether Santa got the vaccine and if it was safe for him to visit them on Christmas and deliver presents. "Well, I have to say I took care of that for you because I was worried that you all would be upset," he said. "So what I did a little while ago, I took a trip up there to the North Pole. I went there and I vaccinated Santa Claus myself. I measured his level of immunity, and he is good to go. He can come down the chimney, he can leave the presents, he can leave and you have nothing to worry about. Santa Claus is good to go." Fauci also answered questions about the vaccine, how the virus affects people, and the importance of following safety measures like wearing a mask even after getting vaccinated. With only a few days until Christmas, Fauci and other public health experts have urged people to be cautious while celebrating to prevent another massive spike in COVID-19 numbers. The country is now sitting at a critical juncture, with vaccines signaling what may be the beginning of the end of the pandemic, as deaths and hospitalizations hit record highs. More than 17 million coronavirus cases and 314,000 deaths have been recorded since public health officials began collecting data at the start of the pandemic.

Residential Knoxboxes Allow Firefighters To Get To Residents In Distress

by Yvette Urrea Moe, County of San Diego Communications Office

"I'm dreaming of a white Christmas...just like the ones I used to know…" My very first white Christmas was long before our 1999 move to Julian. It was when I was 11 years old in the early 1960's. We were returning back to our home in the bay area; my mother, my two older siblings, and me. One year earlier, Mom's mother in Illinois had died prior to the holiday season. I believe Mom had a strong case of "Italian guilt," as the youngest daughter of parents who had immigrated from Italy during World War 1. She made plans to lease our home in Redwood City for nearly one year, so we could be with her widowed father. Since she was a single parent, she quit her job in the bay area and off we went on the train from San Francisco to Chicago in April during Easter break. Five of her siblings lived in the suburbs of Chicago. Grandpa was suffering from Alzheimer's and could no long remember how to speak English. During the ride in the station wagon to our new home in Oak

The KnoxBoxes can either be installed on a door or on a wall next to the front door. If someone in a home suffers a medical emergency, they may be able to push a medical alert button or call 911, but unable to get to the door when help arrives. San Diego County Fire is now offering qualifying residents a secure key safe called a KnoxBox that will allow first responders to gain access to a home within seconds in a life-threatening or critical situation. “When someone is having a medical emergency and becomes pulseless and apneic, it’s really important for us to get in there and provide medical attention within 4-6 minutes and it’s costing us minutes to get in when we are having to break a door down,” said County Fire Deputy Chief Dave Nissen, who has worked in the rural East County communities for 30 years. “Looking at it from an evacuee position, we can get in there as well if a house is imminently threatened by fire or other types of emergencies and move people out who may not be able to move themselves,” said Nissen. County Supervisor Dianne Jacob, who represents communities protected by San Diego County Fire, said this program will truly benefit people in need in the backcountry. “For older folks with chronic health conditions or in need of help with basic activities, KnoxBoxes can be a lifesaver,” said Jacob. “These devices can also provide some peace of mind in a region where wildfire is a year-round threat.” The program aligns with the County’s commitment to living safely, one of four strategic plan initiatives, and is offered at no cost to qualifying residents. County Fire installs the box just on or near the front door and can only be opened by local firefighters responding to life-threatening emergencies. The concern about firefighters being able to gain access to their home was on Nancy Weir’s mind when she called her local fire station on Palomar Mountain. Initially, she just wanted to make sure they could get past a complicated gate system used by several homes including her own. In talking to the captain, she mentioned that she is recovering from a concussion that can cause various degrees of dizziness and fainting. “I just wanted to be sure if I was home alone with the doors locked, the fire department could easily get in without busting my door down,” continued on page 8

Park, Mom mentioned to her brother Carmie "I don't know how soon I will remember my Italian!". Uncle Carmie says “you worry too much Mary.” Well, she was fluent in less than a week, as we got our furniture from California delivered and boxes unpacked, and Grandpa moved into the house with us. For us kids, there were cousins everywhere!!! Always somebody to play sports with, waterskiing and fishing, camping. We learned bits of Italian to be able to converse with our happy grandpa. He was so thrilled to have his daughter back, as she had moved to San Francisco at age 21 in 1939, married my father in 1942, and served in WW2 as did my Dad. They began building a family after the war, and sadly, my parents divorced in the early 1950's. Our schedule to return to the Bay Area was set for late December during Christmas break. The movers packed our furniture and belongings into their truck and departed on Christmas Eve. Uncle Tony drove us to

the bus station and we climbed onto the Greyhound for the 3 day journey back home to California. Merry Christmas! Somewhere in western Missouri, it began snowing at midday! What a thrill for us kids, our first experience ever with “the white stuff”… even though we were stuck in a Greyhound bus traveling on Route 66. It was a White Christmas and it was not a dream! Of course, living in Julian all these years, we have seen lots of snow, and shoveled regularly to keep our bed and breakfast property clear and safe for our guests. Snowfall is such a joy for San Diego county residents. We’ve seen snow in 10 of the 12 calendar months since moving here nearly 22 years ago. In late November 2008, Julian was preparing for Country Christmas and the tree-lighting ceremony in Pioneer Park. We woke up that day to heavy rain. I called our party rental supplier, Seidl’s, and requested a pavilion covering for the large stage they provide each year. They got it installed late morning just as the rain subsided. Later that afternoon, after several hours of performers with hundreds of people in the park and no rain, clouds appeared again in Julian. “Oh no!”, I thought. The crowd joined in the traditional countdown “10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!”…and the Merchant of the Year lighted the tree. Santa Claus appears in his fire truck sleigh, as the snow begins to gently fall and the crowd cheers. Perfect scripting! Smiles everywhere.

To Protect Mental, Physical Wellness, Stay Close from Afar

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

The novel coronavirus pandemic has forced us into isolation and kept us away from family and friends. That can make for a difficult holiday season, which is usually spent gathering with others and is often the only time some family members see each other. Mental health experts say it’s important to stay connected and reinforcing those relationships can make it easier to get through this challenging time. “Reach out to your loved ones and do it often,” said Luke Bergmann, director of Behavioral Health Services for the County of San Diego Health and Human Services Agency. “It can help you, and them, feel less lonely and isolated while the stay-athome order is in place.” Bergmann emphasized that it is particularly important that we not pit our mental health against our public health. “The most important thing we can do for the community’s long-term mental wellness is to

observe public health orders and get this pandemic under control,” Bergmann said. But in the shorter-term, the COVID-19 pandemic will continue to be stressful for people and communities. Bergmann said it’s important for people to monitor their physical and mental health and to stay as connected as possible while staying physically distant. “We are encouraging everyone

to be in contact with their friends and loved ones, but to please do it from afar,” he said. Behavioral Health Services offers the following tips for managing mental wellness while being isolated: Pause, take deep breaths and notice how you feel. Talk or video chat with people you trust about your feelings and concerns. continued on page 5

We miss those we loved, who are no longer here Handshakes, hugs, friendships, and moments of cheer.

Negro League Baseball Finally Recognized For What It Was Major League Baseball is elevating the Negro Leagues of 1920-1948 to "Major League" status, "correcting a longtime oversight in the game's history," commissioner Rob Manfred said Wednesday. "All of us who love baseball have long known that the Negro Leagues produced many of our game's best players, innovations and triumphs against a backdrop of injustice," Manfred said in a statement. "We are now grateful to count the players of the Negro Leagues where they belong: as Major Leaguers within the official historical record." The move, which is the culmination of MLB's centennial celebration of the Negro Leagues in 2020, will see the statistics and records from seven professional Negro Leagues that operated from 1920-1948 integrated into the MLB record books and include approximately 3,400 players as part of official MLB history. Black players unable to compete in MLB due to racism and segregation laws competed professionally in the Negro Leagues around the United States. Jackie Robinson was a Negro League star for the Kansas City Monarchs before breaking modern baseball's color barrier when he debuted for the Brooklyn Dodgers on April 15, 1947. "In the minds of baseball fans worldwide, this serves as historical validation for those who had been shunned from the Major Leagues and had the foresight and courage to create their own league that helped change the game and our country too," Bob Kendrick, president of the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum in Kansas City, Missouri, said in a statement. MLB said it had begun a review process with the Elias Sports Bureau "to determine the full scope of this designation's ramifications on statistics and records."

The Negro Leagues: A Brief History

African-Americans began to engage the game of baseball in the mid to late 1800s. They played on military teams, college teams, and company teams. They eventually found their way to professional teams with white players. Moses Fleetwood Walker and Bud Fowler were among the first to participate. However, racism and "Jim Crow" laws would force them from these teams by 1900. Thus, black players formed their own units, "barnstorming" around the country to play anyone who would challenge them. In 1920, an organized league structure was formed under the guidance of Andrew "Rube" Foster, a former player, manager, and owner for the Chicago American Giants. In a

2602 Washington St • 760 765 1675 meeting held at the Paseo YMCA in Kansas City, Mo., Foster and a few other Midwestern team owners joined to form the Negro National League. Soon, rival leagues formed in Eastern and Southern states, bringing the thrills and innovative play of black baseball to major urban centers and rural country sides in the U.S., Canada, and Latin America. The Leagues maintained a high level of professional skill and became centerpieces for economic development in many black communities. Baseball was a rich cultural and commercial phenomenon for an Afro-Atlantic culture in the Americas, beginning in the 19th century, reaching an apex with the Negro Leagues, and continuing today with many individuals contributing to the history of the game. When speaking of Negro Leagues Baseball, one should be distinguishing the highest level of professional baseball played among AfricanAmericans principally from 19201955. Professional leagues functioned primarily in the Midwest, Northeast, and less frequently in the southeastern United States. These leagues and teams established a high level of skill and entertainment throughout North America. African American involvement in baseball, however, is a multilayered story. Community teams, college teams, community economics, ownership, wealth consolidation, Latin influences, media coverage, military service, and women's roles are all entwined in the general study of the subject. In 1945, Major League Baseball's Brooklyn Dodgers recruited Jackie Robinson from the Kansas City Monarchs. Robinson became the first African-American in the modern era to play on a Major League roster. While this historic event was a key moment in baseball and

civil rights history, it prompted the decline of the Negro Leagues. The best black players were now recruited for the Major Leagues, and black fans followed. The last Negro Leagues teams folded in the early 1960s, but their legacy lives on through the surviving players and the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum.

MLB Can Add Negro Leagues To Official Records But Can Never Change What It Did To Black Players Howard Bryant ESPN Senior Writer

Major League Baseball's decision to alter the status of the Negro Leagues to major league and incorporate Negro Leagues statistics into a historical record in which they did not participate is consistent with two opposing but defining forces of our time. One is the racial reckoning that has defined America postGeorge Floyd's killing. The other is the routine bombardment by powerful institutions and individuals of ahistorical misinformation -- the death of truth that has accelerated over the past four years. Adding Negro League statistics to baseball's official record in the year of the 100th anniversary of the Negro Leagues' founding appeared to be a positive step toward racial justice, and indeed was motivated by the politics and climate of 2020. The decision was met with great applause, but in addition to being reconciliatory, it was also a spectacular display of historical distortion

and institutional arrogance. Baseball has now decided that the threadbare, survivalist Negro Leagues -- plural because there were so many Black leagues between 1920 and 1948, often unconnected to one another -- are now the honored, rehabilitated equivalent of the National and American Leagues. The 1943 New York Yankees won the World Series with a 154-game schedule. According to the Negro Leagues database Seamheads.com, in 1943, Josh Gibson is credited with hitting .441 in 342 plate appearances, which wouldn't qualify for a batting title. Because of lost record-keeping, Gibson's walks are recorded -- but his strikeouts are not. When Jackie Robinson played for the Kansas City Monarchs in 1945, he was offended by the very existence of the Negro Leagues because of their necessity and because the scheduling was so irregular -- it was difficult to determine which games were official games and which were exhibitions. He couldn't accurately calculate his batting average. The poor scheduling and record-keeping, unreliable data and inferior conditions are not the fault of the Black players. Indeed, no one over the past half-century has questioned their ability. In addition to their exclusion from playing against their white peers, the totality of conditions stands as embarrassing testimony to what the major leagues forced Black players to endure, and that cannot be erased with a procedural merger a century later. Baseball has sent the message: Generations of Black men who were denied the opportunity to play against the world's best competition might have had to carry the devastating price of segregation with them to their graves, but the institution does not. Instead of accepting its history as a reminder of its past and its human cost, to remain as an institutional conscience, baseball took the easy way out. It decided to make itself feel better by rewriting the history books. MLB's news release referred to the decision as "correcting an oversight." But the Negro Leagues were not the result of an "oversight," and to frame their exclusion as such is stunningly offensive. It was a deliberate system. The major leagues destroyed a half-century of Black baseball history, and baseball history in general, with one unrelenting purpose in mind: to do their part in reinforcing Black inferiority to the rest of the country. It is a playbook still employed today. The Negro Leagues served baseball well for decades. The players, fans and owners were used the way some politicians and their operatives use Black people today: to create fear of integration, fear of Black people among whites. The backbone of maintaining segregation was the belief that allowing Black players into the game would ruin the integrity of the sport -- no different from the belief that allowing Black people into the suburbs would ruin the suburbs.

"Creating the National Pastime: Baseball Transforms Itself, 19031953," G. Edward White dissects the distinct purpose the Negro Leagues served for baseball: (italics) When the Negro Leagues had come within the consciousness of Organized Baseball, they had been seen as a reverse mirror image. If Organized Baseball was free from gambling and corruption, the Negro Leagues were run by racketeers. If Organized Baseball was premised on the roster stability of the reserve clause, the Negro Leagues were the province of contract jumpers. If Organized Baseball was structured around permanent franchise cities and regular schedules, the Negro Leagues were kaleidoscope of changing franchise and whimsical scheduling. If Organized Baseball was clean, wholesome, upwardly mobile sport, Negro League games were the scenes of rowdy, disorderly, vulgar behavior. By being the opposite of Organized Baseball's idealized image, the Negro Leagues served as their own justification for the exclusion of blacks from the major leagues. They appeared to demonstrate just how "contaminated" major league baseball would become if blacks were allowed to play it. Even the name, "Organized Baseball" -- how baseball referred to itself before its incorporation as Major League Baseball -- tacitly ridiculed Black players, who if not under the umbrella of organized ball must be disorganized, corrupt, illegitimate. MLB's actions today might have been more appropriate if the games, leagues, teams and schedules of the Black leagues would have contained the structure and record-keeping that could be construed as separate but equal. The game engineered a similar retrofit in 1969, when baseball added the statistics of the Federal League and the American Association to the historical record. But there was nothing separate but equal about the Negro Leagues, and MLB's statistical adjustment ignores the real-time conditions of the league and the motive for their exclusion. Just as in 1954, when the U.S. Supreme Court concluded in Brown v. Board of Education that separate was inherently unequal, separation devastated the Negro Leagues. It devastated the people. It devastated the record book. It did what it was intended to do. Conveying Black inferiority was the cultural justification for the separation, and this statistical

rehabilitation in 2020 also slyly attempts to rehabilitate baseball's architects of segregation as having been respectful of Satchel Paige, and Rube Foster and Oscar Charleston, when they were not. They did not want to live next to Black people and they did not want to play baseball with them. The Negro Leagues did not play alongside the major leagues. They survived despite the major leagues. That intentional subjugation cannot be undone with a pen stroke. It cannot be forgotten that baseball spent a half-century undermining the credibility of the Negro Leagues. The Negro Leagues also contained a certain irreverent beauty in their independence from Major League Baseball. They didn't need baseball's validation to be special. There is magic in standing alone. Whether turning the worst parts of the pig into soul food, the worst urban conditions into a billion-dollar rap music industry or making an often itinerant baseball life into the iconic treasure that is the Negro Leagues, the beauty of Black people is in the ability to be unwanted and still create gold. No inclusion of "official statistics" or the imprimatur of baseball can ever compare to that. The better remedy, of course, would have been to tell the truth. But America does not do the truth very well. A century from now, because of what baseball has done, the record books will show an equality, a form of separate-but-equal fiction that at first glance absolves MLB of its active hand in destroying the careers of Black baseball players -- and a Black institution. Historians will have to circumvent the now-public record to recover the truth. Baseball could have elevated the Negro League classifications as a professional league without altering the record books. It could have retroactively elevated the pensions, to financially assist Negro League descendants. Baseball should have taken the honest road, which would be to carry its stain and leave the tattered, piecemeal records of the various Negro Leagues as a historical reminder of its own destructiveness. Baseball did not do that -- not because it was so important to give Josh Gibson a posthumous batting title but because like most of white, mainstream society, it does not want to carry its share of the responsibility for the condition it created. While baseball has taken what it considers to be a step toward continued on page 12

Librarian of Congress Carla Hayden announced today the annual selection of 25 of America’s most influential motion pictures to be inducted into the National Film Registry of the Library of Congress. These films range from the innovative silent film “Suspense,” which was codirected by a woman in 1913, and Sidney Poitier’s Oscar-winning performance in 1963’s “Lilies of the Field” to the 1978 megahit musical “Grease,” 1980’s musical comedy “The Blues Brothers,” and one of the biggest public vote getters, Christopher Nolan’s 2008 Batman film “The Dark Knight.” “This is not only a great honor for all of us who worked on ‘The Dark Knight,’ this is also a tribute to all of the amazing artists and writers who have worked on the great mythology of Batman over the decades,” said Nolan, director of “The Dark Knight.” Selected because of their cultural, historic or aesthetic importance to the nation’s film heritage, the 2020 titles include blockbusters, musicals, silent films, documentaries and diverse stories transferred from books to screen. They bring the number of films selected for preservation in the registry to 800, a fraction of the 1.3 million films in the Library’s collections. This year’s selections include a record number of films directed by women and filmmakers of color, including nine directed by women and seven by people of color. “The National Film Registry is an important record of American history, culture and creativity,

captured through one of the great American artforms, our cinematic experience,” Hayden said. “With the inclusion of diverse filmmakers, we are not trying to set records but rather to set the record straight by spotlighting the astonishing contributions women and people of color have made to American cinema, despite facing often-overwhelming hurdles.” Several films showcase diverse stories told through American cinema and groundbreaking performances. For his 1963 portrayal of an itinerant worker who helps refugee nuns build a chapel in “Lilies of the Field,” Sidney Poitier became the first African American to win the Oscar for best actor. Poitier said he has fond memories of the role. "‘Lilies of the Field’ stirs up such great remembrances in our family, from the littlest Poitiers watching a young and agile ‘Papa’ to the oldest – Papa Sidney himself!” Poitier said in a statement with his family. In “The Joy Luck Club” from 1993, director Wayne Wang featured a formidable group of actresses telling the saga of two generations of Asian-American women, based on the bestselling book by Amy Tan. "I could have never imagined, after reading a few chapters of Amy's manuscript that eventually became ‘The Joy Luck Club’ book, that my dream of its adaptation would result in a movie that is still talked about decades later,” said producer Janet Yang. “When people tell me – and so many from so many

cultures have – that the movie helped heal a rift with their family, I am immensely gratified, and it reminds me of the power of the moving image.” The 2020 film selections span nearly a century of filmmaking – from the silent era to the most recent film added to the registry, the PBS documentary “Freedom Riders” from 2010 where filmmaker Stanley Nelson captures the inspiring story of 1961 when 400 Black and white Americans risked their lives challenging Jim Crow segregation by traveling together on buses and trains through the Deep South. The record-setting nine films directed by women on the 2020 list include the 1913 silent film “Suspense” co-directed by Lois Weber; the 1918 silent film “Bread” about a woman struggling to pull herself out of poverty, directed by Ida May Park; the 1929 film “With Car and Camera Around the World” by Aloha Wanderwell; the 1950 film “Outrage” about the once verboten topic of sexual assault directed by Ida Lupino; one of the first feature films directed by a Black woman with Kathleen Collins’ “Losing Ground” from 1982; groundbreaking director Julie Dash’s student film “Illusions” confronting Hollywood racism from 1982; the 1994 film “The Devil Never Sleeps” by Lourdes Portillo; the 2006 film “Mauna Kea: Temple Under Siege” co-directed by Joan Lander; and the atypical war film “The Hurt Locker” about

soldiers in Baghdad dismantling unexploded bombs, directed by Kathryn Bigelow in 2008. “My desire in making ‘The Hurt Locker’ was to honor those in uniform serving in dangerous posts abroad, so I have been gratified by the resonance the film has had over the last 10 years,” said Bigelow, who was the first woman to win an Oscar for best director for “The Hurt Locker.” “For it to be selected by the National Film Registry is both humbling and thrilling.” Music is featured prominently in this year’s selections, including the film adaptations of the Broadway musicals “Cabin in the Sky” in 1943 and “Grease” in 1978, with unforgettable performances of John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John in the lead roles. “The cast and crew of ‘Grease’ have remained close for the past 40 years,” said director Randal Kleiser. “We are all honored to be included in this year’s national registry selection. Personally, I’ve spent the last year composing all my script notations, storyboards and photographs.” This year’s class also features the 1980 musical comedy “The Blues Brothers” with its tribute to Chicago, soul and R&B music – and cameos by legends like Cab Calloway, Ray Charles and Aretha Franklin. “Having ‘The Blues Brothers’ chosen to be included in the National Film Registry is both a great honor and a delightful surprise.

My Thoughts A House Fire

by Kiki Skagen Munshi

A MORE OR LESS MERRY CHRISTMAS Delegation and giving responsibility down the line is a good thing, especially for those of us who are overburdened with holiday preparations. So each year here, East of Pine Hills, writing the Christmas letter is delegated to one of the animals. This year it was Two-Fer (Toofie) the calico Senior Cat. Read on. As I take paw to keyboard the sky outside is gray, its dark color matched by the two deer in our yard and the mood of the world in general. The year has been, well, let’s just say it has been different. I am Two-Fer (Toofie) the Senior Cat and as such it is my duty to write and tell you that we are two fewer cats than last (a much merrier) Christmas. Nixie, our Faux Siamese, ventured too far from the house in February, when our PH (that’s Personal Human) was abroad and one of those large coyotes that hang around (you may have seen them if you’ve visited) got her. Then just three weeks ago our little Tabby Two ran out of the house one night and…never returned. We still hope but hope grows dim. T-Two was wise in the ways of coyotes but she was small and we think an owl swooped down and… It doesn’t bear thinking about. Aside from these twin tragedies, the year has been dominated by this disease that People get. COVID something. It appears to be quite dire and has changed everyone’s lives. The minute we heard about it, of course, we animals swung into action since our PH needed protection. Besides, there was at least one instance of an animal—only a dog, but still an animal—contracting it and, well, better safe than sorry. We closed the gate on the only road in to the Ranch and developed a duty roster. The horses were responsible for patrolling the perimeter fence lines, we cats guarded the gate and the chickens watched the road from the locust trees so they could alert us to possible intruders. We even enlisted the deer and turkeys as roving “undercover” guards as they could do forward operations outside of our own fences. Just in case, you Scruffy on Sentry understand. Sadly, humans don’t adapt to rules and organization very well. Before we knew it, our PH was going out shopping—SHOPPING!— and friends came to visit. Given the amount of effort it took us animals to develop our defense structure, you would think…anyway, we still keep an eye on our PH and closely vet visitors. One thing that the human pandemic really changed was our PH’s traveling habits. She went off to Austria (where she got sick (we all think she had the dread disease then but it’s not been confirmed) and Romania in January and February, something about a Mozart festival in Salzburg (but she mainly was ill) with two of OUR friends, Elena and Elsa, but otherwise she’s stayed home. Mirabile dictu! She hasn’t stayed home this long since the mind of cat runneth not to the contrary! She has spent a lot of time in the garden and more time cooking and freezing and reading. For reasons none of us understands, she’s been reading an enormous number of books on India. At least, she was reading until she began to have eye problems, along about September. Fortunately, though Goldie on forward ops it took several visits to various eye doctors (human have SO many doctors; we animals have Large Animal Vets and Small Animal Vets, which makes sense but is certainly enough and best avoided in any case) and lasted nearly three months, she was cured. Something about the cataract replacement lens clouding over (don’t ask, I’m merely repeating what I’ve heard) and it was a two minute fix. Pity it couldn’t have been done sooner. She was NOT in the best of tempers during these months. Speaking of vets, one has been coming to see our Romanian equine friend, Haiduc as he’s been losing weight recently and is even more arthritic than the PH. He likes to eat, though, which is the main sign of health. His pals, Hidalgo and Ben are certainly not losing any weight. Like the PH they….never mind, it’s the holiday season and we mustn’t be catty even if it comes naturally. There was great news in the chicken coop in the spring. One of the hens got broody and sat on eggs. Since there’s no rooster there was no outcome until the PH went to Ramona and bought four adorable (and toothsome looking) baby chicks. These were shoved under the WouldBe-Mommy who immediately became a Real Mommy. Now the chicks have grown and become hens in their own right

Turkeys mustering for a reccy and we have twelve chickens which is probably too many, but they are all pleasant birds so we keep them. The Kid, who as you know, lives in Seattle plans to visit at Christmas along with Steve and Hilda. We are waiting with bated breath. It may take Hilda the Akita a little bit to learn how to deal with four cats, three horses, twelve hens and assorted turkeys and deer, but we have faith. She’ll manage. So, the year has been mixed. We hope that this virus will be brought under control soon as we’re getting tired of patrolling (of COURSE we’re keeping it up and will as long as the emergency lasts) although the opposite side of the coin is that the PH will be off to parts that would be unknown if it weren’t probably Romania and India. Oh, well, it won’t happen very soon. Best wishes to you and your animal minders for COVID free holidays and a good New Year. Toofie - Scruffy Claws - Goldie - Draga - Haiduc - Hidalgo -Ben Twelve hens, assorted turkeys and lots of deer. Also the P.H., Kiki!

Julian Women’s Club Helping Where Help Is Needed Covid-19 cannot keep determined women (and a girl) down. Twelve new members joined this past year, many ready and willing to make friends and connections. All of our usual activities were suspended this year, and we learned to do what we can do and not what we used to do.

Our last activity was a Mitten Project led by new member 14-yearold Brooke Gonzalez. Her goal to collect mittens and socks for every student at Julian Elementary was met with much admiration and support. 200 mittens and socks were packaged by Brooke with a handwritten inspirational note. Packets were passed out before students left for winter break. In late November, club members crafted, sewed, quilted, glued, painted, etc., many items for a first ever Holiday Boutique. It took the place of the Holiday Home Tour. In two days, many items were sold to locals and visitors. Funds go toward scholarships and next year's donations to the community. This year donations were made to Julian Pathways, Julian Pioneer Cemetery, Mountain Manna, Julian Pageant, San Diego Resource Center, and Friends of the Julian Library. Late donations were made to the American Legion for Thanksgiving Dinner and to the Go Fund Me for the Lares Family who were displaced by fire. In addition to the Boutique, there had been participation in the Parade of Lights, Halloween candy give-away, a Book Sale to benefit Imagination Library of Julian, a Yard Sale to help us recycle, and the Mask Project with over 5,000 masks sewn - with some community women (and recognition by Senator Brian Jones for California Heroes), Quilt and Quilt Raffle, plus Virtual Wildflower Show. Our future is bright! There is no discrimination in Federated women's clubs, thus girls of Middle School age and up are welcome to join. The club fund raises to help the Julian community.

Stay Close from Afar continued from page 1

Don’t be glued to the radio, TV or other news outlets. Take a break from content that might be upsetting. Make time for yourself and unwind. Listen to music and do other activities you enjoy while following the public health guidance. Take care of your body and

exercise on a regular basis. Moderate-to-vigorous physical activity can help to reduce anxiety and stress. Rest and get plenty of sleep. Try to go to bed and wake up at the same time, even on weekends. Eat healthy and well-balanced meals. Avoid drugs and, if you drink, do it in moderation.

A week ago one of our local families lost their home to a house fire. Though I don’t know many of the details, I heard that the fire began with an electrical problem and that the house was totaled. Naturally I feel bad for the family and yes, I know the family. They lost pets and this is truly sad, though I’m glad the family is okay. However, this isn’t the first time I’ve known people here in Julian who lost their rented home to a house fire. We own a second home here on our property and whenever we had renters move in, we told them to buy renters insurance. One couple did not buy renters insurance. They did not rake pine needles and other plant debris away from their house even though I told them it was essential to keep their home as fire safe as possible. Sure enough, their home burned extensively in the Cedar Fire. Our house sustained no damage at all because we raked a foot wide dirt perimeter around our foundation, around pine and fir trees, and we raked other areas that we thought might cause problems. Since our renters didn’t do any raking to get combustibles away from the house foundation, the fire lapped up their closet wall where it found years and years worth of PLAYBOY magazines and polyester clothing. The bedroom and all of its contents were destroyed, but thankfully the fire didn’t go much further into the house. Even so, we had to recreate a lot of the interior because the renters locked the doors, so when the firemen tried to enter, they broke door jams and windows. The entire interior of the house had severe smoke and water damage. I never blamed the fire crews for the damage. They did what they had to do. When a person owns a home, you may think they automatically have home owners insurance. Not true. Home owners insurance is required if a person has a mortgage on their home, but not if their home is paid off. Many homes that burned down in the Cedar Fire were not insured because they were paid off and the owners did not continue or could not continue getting insurance. I knew of a family who lived in a home that had been in their family for four generations. It burned down, uninsured. It wasn’t the only one like that here in the back country of San Diego. More than one multi-generational home burned in the Cedar Fire and I find that extremely sad. When buying home owners insurance, please don’t forget to add the cost of demolition. Whatever is left of your burned down house will have to be removed and that may cost you a lot of money. You won’t want to take that amount out of your rebuild fund. If your home burns down, hope you get an experienced insurance inspector. Young ones miss things. Older or more experienced inspectors remember to tell you to list lost clothing, groceries and personal items. They will tell you to add up your dry cleaning bill for drapes and curtains. Laundry items such as bedding and bath linens should be listed too. Don’t forget appliances, large and small from your electric nose hair puller to your freezer and commercial grade stove and oven. We all have items that are precious to us. All of the Christmas ornaments that our children made for us when they were in elementary school and perhaps a wedding gift that was inherited. Important papers and family photos can’t be replaced, so they should be placed near a door or even in your vehicle where they won’t die from heat. I used to be a photographer and I worked in camera stores for about ten years so I’ve seen plenty of ruined photos. Getting ready for the probability of a house fire takes a lot of thinking and a lot of planning. Please be ready and save yourself and your pets first if possible. These are my thoughts.

Chef’s Corner Christmas Tradition Gets a Modern Twist

It seems like I was just planning and preparing our Thanksgiving dinner and now Christmas is upon us. If you want to change things up a little for your Christmas dinner, try modernizing an old traditional recipe. Recently, I’ve been reading about Christmas customs and holiday meals in Europe. I discovered a tradition called The Feast of the Seven Fishes, along with several delicious recipes for preparing fish. The fish is often used as

a symbol of Christianity. Because of the persecution faced by the early church, when a Christian met a stranger in the road, the Christian sometimes drew one arc of the simple fish outline in the dirt. If the stranger drew the other arc, both believers knew they were in good company. Preparing and eating seafood

on Christmas Eve in celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ is an old European tradition with Italian roots. Many families abstain from eating meat and serve only fish or other types of seafood on Christmas Eve. This traditional holiday meal is called The Feast of the Seven Fishes.

Watch Holder

There has always been a need to tell time, and early methods -sundials, hourglasses, water clocks or even large arrangements of stones and shadows -- were not accurate. The first mechanical clocks were invented in the 14th century, the pendulum clock in 1656, and by the 1700s there were many clocks in church towers that rang bells to tell citizens the time. The small watch that could be carried by a person was developed after 1810. Then came pocket watches worn on a chain, and in 1868 the wristwatch was made. But there was still no affordable clock for home use. An unknown person made the first watch holder in the early

This watch holder is an elaborate clock when a pocket watch is put into the hole. An interesting, moneysaving idea by an anonymous person in the 19th century. 1800s. The holder was a small decorative stand that held an available pocket watch on a table.

They were made of ceramics, metal, wood -- anything that could be shaped into a stand with a large hole. Some were even made by famous artists and jewelers of bronze or gold, or by a company that made ceramic dishes or statues. Most were not signed. The watch holder is often a "whatsit." The hole in the middle is confusing to a 21st century person who tells time with a wristwatch or cellphone. A Neal Auction in New Orleans sold an early 19th century watch holder of gilt bronze. It is shaped like a harp held by swans on a pedestal base. When the watch is inserted in the hole near the top, it creates a decorative "clock." It sold for $875. *** Q: We have an iron doorstop from my grandfather's house. It has five black and white puppies hanging on a log fence and is 8 inches high and 12 inches wide. We'd like to sell it, but don't know wat it's worth. Can you help?

A: Cast iron doorstops were made beginning about 1890. They became popular around 1910 when several companies in the United States began making figural doorstops. Vintage figural cast iron doorstops made from 1890 to the 1930s, and in good condition, usually sell for the highest prices. New designs and reproductions of old doorstops sold in gift shops, home decorating stores and online are worth less. The doorstop you describe was made in China and is not old. It sells online for $30 to $60. *** CURRENT PRICES Cambridge glass, candy jar, lid, rose du barry, peach-blo, acid etched, silver leaf bands, knob, 6 inches, $115. Hubley doorstop, cat, red, art deco, cast iron, c. 1925, 5 1/4 x 4 1/2 inches, $375. Tiffany salt and pepper shakers, owl, silver, 2 1/2 inches, $920. Hasselblad camera, 503CX,

Zeiss lenses, branded carrying case, 10 x 13 inches, $1,970. *** TIP: Look at the hinge on a tilttop table. The wear should show on both the top and the base if it is old.

Dan Aykroyd and John Belushi’s genuine passion for rhythm and blues and our mutual love for these great African American artists and the city of Chicago,” said director John Landis, who has two additional films in the National Film Registry, “Animal House” and Michael Jackson’s “Thriller.” Aykroyd added that “Judy Belushi and I are exhilarated to see the performances of the African American musical stars in ‘The Blues Brothers’ film formally treasured for all time by the people of the United States. We feel grateful at being participants in making the movie and for this most worthwhile cultural preservation initiative." In 2013, the Library of Congress released a report that conclusively determined that 70 percent of the nation’s silent feature films have been lost forever and only 14 percent exist in their original 35 mm format. Under the terms of the National Film Preservation Act, each year the Librarian of Congress names to the National Film Registry 25 motion pictures that are “culturally, historically or aesthetically” significant. The films must be at least 10 years old. More information about the National Film Registry can be found at loc.gov/film. The Librarian makes the annual registry selections after conferring with the distinguished members of the National Film Preservation Board (NFPB) and a cadre of Library specialists. Also considered were more than 5,500 titles nominated by the public. Nominations for next year will be accepted through the fall at loc.gov/programs/nationalfilm-preser vation-board/filmregistry/nominate/. In addition to advising the Librarian of Congress on the annual selection of titles to the National Film Registry, the NFPB also provides counsel on national preservation planning policy.

Ice

Robert Frost was a famous American poet. In “Birches,” he wrote about swinging on the branches of birch trees. He described the way an ice storm weighs branches down with a coating of ice. Hmmm...Frost wrote about ice storms! Read this aloud to “hear” the ice: “... Loaded with ice a sunny winter morning After a rain. They click upon themselves As the breeze rises, and turn many-colored As the stir cracks and crazes their enamel. Soon the sun’s warmth makes them shed crystal shells Shattering and avalanching on the snow-crust– Such heaps of broken glass to sweep away...”

continued from page 1 Weir said. She said the captain came by to look at the gate and suggested she would be a perfect candidate for the residential KnoxBox program which she had not heard about. She signed up and soon enough someone from the fire station came by to install it. “I feel a lot safer now knowing they know how to get in the gate and how to get in my house and what my issues are,” Weir said. “It’s all great now, not only for medical relief but we have a super high fire risk here.” County Fire received a federal grant to help buy an initial 200 KnoxBoxes. The agency loans the boxes to participants to help reduce risk in their rural communities. The program launched in October and has received over 70 applicants so

far, and more than 25 have been installed in communities such as Potrero, Jamul and Warner Springs.

Social Media And Kids: What Parents Can Do To Ensure Safe Use (StatePoint) The negative effects of social media have been much discussed as of late, thanks to the recently released documentary on Netflix, “The Social Dilemma.” The documentary argues that while platforms like Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook have at times been used to facilitate social movements and meaningful change, they can also make people more anxious, polarized, and inclined to believe misinformation. What’s more, according to the documentary, these apps are structured to make their users obsessed with them. As many parents know, children can be susceptible to the most common pitfalls of social media, but there are some key steps that they can take to help ensure that children’s usage remains balanced, healthy and safe: • Sorting fact from fiction: Information about the world is often delivered via social media tools. Unfortunately, much of that content is actually misinformation. Parents can help stem the tide of “fake news” by teaching kids how to sort fact from fiction and pointing them in the direction of trusted sources of information. • Privacy measures: An enormous amount of data is gathered by social media companies. Parents should teach kids to be wary of continued on page 12

California Commentary

Serf State, USA Huntington Beach was awarded the official title of “Surf City” by the U.S. Patent and Trade Office in 2006 based on its historical beach culture, music and active outdoor lifestyle. A great case could also be made to have the entirety of California designated as the “Serf State” based on its excessive taxation, burdensome regulations and poor government services. Serfdom generally refers to the economic and legal systems in which a tenant farmer was bound to a hereditary plot of land and to the will of his feudal lord. For example, serfs in medieval Europe obtained their subsistence by working land that was owned by a “noble.” “The Road to Serfdom,” written in the early 1940s by Austrian-British economist and philosopher Friedrich Hayek, remains one of the most influential works on free market capitalism. Indeed, many of today’s economic libertarians are known as adherents to the Austrian School of economic theory. This is distinguished from Keynesians who advocate for centralized control of the economy by “experts,” usually employed by government. Hayek contended that Marxism or its slightly less poisonous variant, socialism, leads to poverty, oppression and loss of basic human liberties. So, cutting to the chase, is excessive taxation a form of “involuntary servitude” (a phrase that actually appears in the U.S. Constitution) or at least serfdom? Of course, “excessive” taxation should not be construed to mean all taxation. A level of taxation that is confiscatory can no longer be called civilized. There is little doubt that California’s tax burden is rapidly closing in on a confiscatory level, if it isn’t there already. Our state has the highest income tax rate in America, the highest state sales tax and the highest gas tax. Even with Proposition 13 we remain in the top half of all states in property tax collections per

by Jon Coupal

capita. Regrettably, California’s elected leaders care little about the tax burden that citizens and businesses are forced to pay and continue to pursue destructive tax policies. Nothing makes this more clear than a proposal from Assemblyman Rob Bonta, D-Oakland, to impose a first-inthe-nation state wealth tax. His Assembly Bill 2088 died in the last session but he has promised to resurrect it in January. Supported by public-sector labor organizations, the wealth tax would target California’s wealthiest citizens. It would impose a tax on a resident’s net worth, rather than on income or consumption. Finally, the bill would attempt to extract the tax from residents who move out of the state for a decade. In short, this provision of the proposal would impose a tax on leaving California. Here is where the analogy to serfdom is most fitting. Serfs had little opportunity to improve their lives or to leave the land to which they were bound. Bonta’s bill is an attempt to prevent Californians from escaping to lands more free — as millions have already. The good news here is that Bonta’s “exit tax” is patently unconstitutional and everyone knows it. The bad news is that, even if the proposal never gains serious traction, it still serves as a harsh reminder to the rest of the nation of how unhinged the previously Golden State has become. Last week, Hewlett-Packard, one of the earliest tech companies founded in Silicon Valley, announced it was moving its headquarters to Houston, Texas. Capital flight out of California is accelerating, as is the outmigration of productive citizens who have wisely decided that they will no longer be serfs to the political class who eat the bread made by others. *** Jon Coupal is the president of the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association (HJTA).

® Dear EarthTalk: My New Year’s resolution is to eat healthier. Which fruits and vegetables are worth spending extra money on for organic varieties? Likewise, is it worth it from the standpoint of health to also pay a premium for organic meat, cheese and eggs? – P. McAdams, via email

continued on page 10 Tomatoes are one of the produce aisle items on Environmental Working Group's "Dirty Dozen" list of fruits and vegetables that are worth spending extra on for organic varieties to spare yourself exposure to pesticide residues. Credit: Rusty Clark~100K Photos, FlickrCC. It is indeed difficult to figure out which foods are worth spending more money on for organic varieties. Sure, you can just buy only organic in every category, but you’d end up spending upwards of 20 percent more every time you shopped. And certain “conventional” (i.e., non-organic) foods contain lots of pesticides and chemicals while others do not. Knowing where to draw the line in the grocery aisle is increasingly difficult given the profusion of organic choices these days. But luckily if you are armed with a few facts, you can eat healthier without breaking the bank. As for produce, many conventionally grown fruits and vegetables don’t contain or pass along significant amounts of pesticides or other noxious chemicals. The non-profit Environmental Working Group (EWG) suggests only buying organic for their so-called “dirty dozen” list of common produce items that do tend to harbor larger amounts of chemicals: strawberries, spinach, nectarines, apples, peaches, pears, cherries, grapes, celery, tomatoes, sweet bell peppers and potatoes. Going for organic varieties of these fruits and vegetables is one of the most affordable ways to eat healthier because the price premium on organic produce is in many cases negligible given more consumer demand driving increased production and supply. On the flip side, EWG also produces the “Green Fifteen” list of produce that tends to be contaminant-free even when not organic: avocado, pineapple, onion, papaya, frozen sweet peas, sweet corn, eggplant, asparagus, cauliflower, cantaloupe, broccoli, mushrooms, cabbage, kiwi and honeydew melon. As for animal products, organic varieties can only bear the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) “Organic” stamp if they are “raised in living conditions accommodating their natural behaviors (like the ability to graze on pasture), fed 100% organic feed and forage, and not administered antibiotics or hormones.” As to whether organic meat is better for your health, don’t bet on it. A 2015 Spanish study found that consumption of organic meat does not diminish—and in fact might slightly increase—the risk of getting cancer. That said, other research has shown that organic meat contains more healthy Omega-3 unsaturated fats—this results from the animals eating grass not grain. Another good reason to go organic if you eat meat is ethics: Conventionally raised livestock are subject to confinement and overcrowding while being dosed with antibiotics to prevent the spread of bacterial infection in their midst. The same calculus applies to organic versus conventional dairy products: organic milk and cheese may contain more Omega-3s but otherwise the health differences are negligible. It certainly is a balancing act today to shop with your family’s health and your own conscience in mind while not breaking the bank. The bright side of this conundrum is that we do have so many healthier choices overall these days, and it’s easier than any time in the last 75 years to avoid chemicals in your food if that’s the way you want to roll.

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) At this time you might want to resist that otherwise admirable Aries penchant for getting to the heart of a matter quickly. Keep in mind that a delicate situation calls for patience. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Your aspects favor more diplomacy and fewer direct confrontations when dealing with a relationship problem. Avoiding hurt feelings can help in your search for the truth. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Positive aspects are strong this week. Although you might still have to deal with some problems caused by a recent period of turmoil, you are making progress, and that's what counts. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) A family matter could benefit from your counsel. But don't come into it unless invited, and don't stay if you feel uneasy. Just remember to reassure one and all that you'll be there for them. LEO (July 23 to August 22) As the truth about an ongoing situation emerges, you could find that you were right to defer judgment before you had all the facts. Now would be a good time to move on to other matters. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Your plans to take control of a personal situation because you feel you are best qualified could create resentment. Best to hear what everyone else involved in the matter has to say about it. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Uncovering some surprising background facts about that

reparation, it has taken another away from accountability. Part of the strength of an institution is in its acknowledgment of where it has failed, and who suffered because of that failure. Josh Gibson should not be acknowledged as a major league batting champ because Josh Gibson never played in the major leagues. His statistics were never considered on par with the big leagues because Major League Baseball did not respect the institution of the Negro Leagues, even though Gibson's individual talent was unquestioned. The reason was not an oversight, but a mandate from the very top of the game. This year, the Baseball Writers' Association of America took the name of Kenesaw Mountain Landis off of its annual Most Valuable Player awards. Landis was baseball's inaugural commissioner whom Paul Robeson pressured in a 1943 meeting to integrate when the entire sport knew Landis would never allow integration on his watch. If Gibson and several generations of Black men had to carry that injustice to their graves, the institution of baseball can carry it too. At some point, baseball, like the rest of the country, must wear what it has done to Black people. As much as it must acknowledge that the massive Black underclass the country's two political parties fight over every four years was created by America and not the lack of drive or industry on the part of African Americans, it must also acknowledge that the tattered, unreliable statistical and historical record of the Negro Leagues was not the byproduct of Black baseball's poor business acumen. It was born from baseball's racism, and the effects of that racism cannot be retrofitted into the record

They can also add privacy settings to children’s profiles to ensure they are connected only to their friends and family. • Social media and feelings: Social media usage can be an emotional roller coaster. Parents should consider having a conversation with children about the way social media makes them feel. As part of this discussion, parents can remind kids that while “likes” and nice comments may make them feel good, it’s important not to rely too heavily on social media for emotional validation or real connection with friends. Unfortunately, cyberbullies and online “trolls” are active social media users, too, making social media apps a sometimes unfriendly place. • Monitoring usage: New tools are helping parents seamlessly monitor social media usage and protect kids from unsafe content.

ongoing personal matter could make you reconsider the extent of your involvement. A neutral family member offers advice. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Religious or spiritual themes start to dominate your aspect this week. This can serve as a counterweight to the mounting effects of the season's growing commercialization. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Taking on that recent challenge impressed a lot of important decision-makers. Meanwhile, proceed with your holiday plans, and don't forget to include you-know-who in them. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Disagreeing with an opinion you can't accept could be dicey, and your motives might be questioned. Best to wait to mount a challenge until you have support for your position. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Getting involved in helping others in this increasingly hectic period not only makes the generous Aquarian feel good, but you could also gain a more substantive benefit from your actions. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) The Piscean way of thinking clearly and objectively helps you resolve a complex situation without creating any ill will. Don't be surprised if your counsel is requested on another matter. BORN THIS WEEK: You have a way of persuading people to look at the positive possibilities that make up any choices they might face.

Howdy From Lake Cuyamaca HOT OFF THE PRESSES… THE TROUT BITE IS OFICIALLY ON !!! Limits are now coming out consistently. Two gents just walked in to the Bait and Tackle Shop who were satisfied with their catch of two hours… a 10 ¼ pound rainbow, 5 ¾ , 4 ¾, and the rest of the stringer filled out with 3 pound rainbows… all rainbows, no lightning, at Lone Pine using rainbow Power Bait… fishing shallow water, using the Carolina rig. The cooler water doesn’t seem to bother them. Leonard Leon… one of the north shore rangers reported that Max Rinna just reeled in a nice 6.5 pound rainbow trout using 4 pound main line and 4 pound leader, an 18” leader length at Chambers Park shoreline using chartreuse Power Bait. Rainbow Power Bait is also working well. So, the fish planted for the big “Western Outdoor News” tournament that was scheduled to happen, but was postponed (on December 12th and 13th) are finally coming around. A local… we’ll call him “Skip” has been nailing the rainbows on the north shore at Lone Pine. And reports of stringers of 3 to 5 pounders have been more frequent and 8.5 pounder came out the yesterday, but the fish planted included up to 10 pounders. I’m not sure that a 2 pound leader line would work. And of course, there have been stories about the one that got away !… So they are coming around! Remember that Waterfowl

books. Not knowing Slim Jones' full statistics is not his stain but baseball's. The reason the Negro Leagues are so steeped in legend is because no one knows precisely what happened. The legend that Josh Gibson perhaps hit 800 home runs carries more power than what is left of the shredded, surviving statistical record because it gave these Black men their poetry. It gave them their dignity. The legend was more important than being anointed legitimate 100 years later by the very industry that excluded them. They became bigger than the numbers that were denied them. Legend has given them back what MLB took. For those who lived during the time, the history is obvious, but future generations will not know the history because it will not be theirs, and certainly, that historical erasure of combining MLB and Negro League statistics is the point -- that one day no one will know the difference. Black and white players will, over generations, become indistinguishable statistical slash lines at first glance. The sport will be credited with making these Black players "whole," white people will feel better about themselves, and thus the Negro Leaguers' experiences as proud and humiliated professionals -- and more important, who humiliated them -- will all be forgotten. Baseball can change its record books, but it cannot choose how long it will recognize what it did to these Black players. The Negro Leagues, and the scattered and incomplete logbook, is and always will be the game's eternal burden. The sport must carry it, and it cannot be undone. Instead of carrying its historical share as we all must, baseball preferred distortion, reminding us that in America, all remedies are an option -- except the truth.

Hunting is being held on Wednesdays and Sunday mornings through January. Check at the bait and tackle shop about fishing restrictions during those times. The daytime weather with winds up to 40 mph is keeping some of our anglers away, but for those who tuff it out, the rewards can be handsome. The young Labrador, Koa , has turned into an unguided missile… wow baby, look out. There are times he acts as though he has been stuck with a cattle prod ! This morning during our walk he noticed a dead mouse lying in the grass and, of course, had to try to eat it. That wasn’t very appealing to my wife who, tried to get the mouse out of his mouth… and did, until our return trip… that time he didn’t even give her a chance before gobbling it down… much to her dismay, and my amusement. There are times when you must miss Buster Keaton, The Lone Ranger, Jack La Lane, Tim Conway , Phillis Diller , Carol Burnett , Perry Mason , Red Skelton , Tabatha , Don Knotts and Deputy Dog … at least I do.
