New California Laws That May Impact Your Life In 2021

Back Country Covid Cases as of December 26

Julian = 47 (+4) Ramona = 1,309 (+202) Ranchita = 9 (+1) Warner Springs = 31 (+1) Santa Ysabel = 28 (+5) Borrego Springs = 78 (+9) Descanso = 51(+8) Alpine = 665 (+75) Poway = 1,069 (+180) Lakeside = 1,418 (+ 228) Total Confirmed cases in Unincorporated San Diego County = 16,363 a total rise of 3,469. 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 19,314 new lab-confirmed cases have been added in the region since last weekend, bringing the total to 145,779 County wide. 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.”

Hundreds of bills were signed into law in 2020. Here are a handful of them that may affect you the most. Californians will awake to a slew of new laws Jan. 1, affecting millions of California workers and families. The new laws tackle everything from how much time workers can take off to care for loved ones to how many members of minority communities a corporation must include on its board of directors, and the minimum steps a company must take to protect employees from the coronavirus pandemic. The new laws going into effect reflect the major headlines and challenges of 2020. They're born out of the pandemic and the need to protect workers and shield families. They attempt to tackle the wildfire threat that drove hundreds of thousands of Golden State residents from their homes in 2020. And they attempt to tackle racial inequality following a year after millions took to the streets to march for racial justice. It can be difficult to keep track of the new laws that will affect you, so we've gathered a handful of the laws likely to impact residents the most in the Golden State come 2021. Employee "Right To Know" Assembly Bill 685, which becomes law Jan. 1, will require employers to notify employees and the public of a potential workplace COVID-19 exposure within a day of the exposure. Companies must notify their workers in writing, inform them of their benefits and rights, and provide a comprehensive plan for disinfection. The company also has 48 hours to notify the local public health agency of a workplace outbreak. Employers who fail to do so risk major penalties. AB 685 authorizes Cal-OSHA to close workplaces that pose "an imminent hazard to employees" due to the coronavirus. Minority Board Representation After requiring publicly owned companies based in California to have at least one woman on the board of directors, the state is looking to further diversify corporate boards with Assembly Bill 979. By the end of 2021, publicly held California corporations must have at least one board member from an unrepresented community, selfidentifying as Black, African American, Hispanic, Latino, Asian, Pacific Islander, Native American, Native Hawaiian or Alaska Native, or gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender. By the end of 2022, if the board has nine or more board seats, then at least three seats must go to members of minority communities, according to the new law. Companies that fail to come into compliance face a series of fines between $100,000 and $300,000. AB 979 is already facing legal challenges making their way through the courts. Family Rights Act Senate Bill 1383, which goes into effect Jan. 1, extends family leave protections to employees at smaller California businesses. It also increases the number of loved ones who qualify for protected family leave. Businesses that employ five or more workers will have to allow them to take family leave to care for grandparents, grandchildren and siblings in addition to spouse, a registered domestic partner, child or parent. Lastly, it provides leave related to active duty of an worker's spouse, registered

domestic partner, child, or parent. Gender Wage Gap Senate Bill 973, which goes into effect Jan. 1, might not seem to have an immediate effect upon workers, but California lawmakers believe it will help tackle the historic gender wage gap in the state in the long run. The law requires certain California companies that have 100 or more employees to report employee pay data to the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing annually. The wage data is intended to help officials identify potentially discriminatory wage patterns. The law would require employers to report their number of employees by race, ethnicity and sex within a series of job categories. That data could then be parsed for discriminatory patterns. While the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing would keep the reports confidential, employees suing for discrimination may be able to access the reports for legal filings. Slavery Reparations Assembly Bill 3121 establishes a state task force to study and come up with proposals for providing reparations to the descendants of slaves. The law, an attempt at racial reckoning in the state, will require the task force to meet by June. It will be comprised of appointees by the governor and state Senate leader. The task force will study the history of slavery in California and its impact on the descendants of those slaves across generations. It will have the power to hold hearings and compel testimony and evidence. From there, the task force will be expected to put forth solutions for redressing that impact. While it's unknown what the task force will recommend for reparations, this law could have a major economic impact on the state as well as the lives of families affected by slavery. Expunged Records For Inmate Firefighters In a year when catastrophic wildfires charred millions of acres across the state and stretched firefighting crews to the breaking point, California passed Assembly Bill 2147. The law will allow inmates who work in prison fire camps a chance to have their records expunged upon release. The law is designed to reward their service by making it easier for them to find employment upon release especially among the ranks of professional firefighters at a time when California proved to be woefully short. The bill's authors contend it could be key in protecting residents in this era of catastrophic wildfires. "Inmates who have stood on the frontlines, battling historic fires should not be denied the right to later become a professional firefighter," Newsom said upon signing the law.

Motorists Beware: 4 New Calif. Roadway Safety Laws Coming In 2021.

When you hit the road in 2021, be prepared for new laws aimed at helping to keep motorists in the Golden State safer. ​​ As with any new year, a new wave of laws will start taking effect on Jan. 1. Some of them won't affect many, some of them will affect all. And some of them will affect a specific group of people, like motorists. From ensuring a good Samaritan can't be punished for rescuing a small child from a hot car, to cracking down on distracted drivers, the CHP will

be enforcing some important new laws in 2021. The California Highway Patrol shared the following list and descriptions of roadway safety bills that they wished to highlight as 2020 comes to an end: * Unattended children in motor vehicles (AB 2717, Chau): Exempts a person from civil or criminal liability for trespassing or damaging a vehicle when rescuing a child who is 6 years old or younger and who is in immediate danger from heat, cold, lack of ventilation, or other dangerous circumstances. The law takes effect January 1, 2021. * "Move Over, Slow Down" amendments (AB 2285, Transportation Committee): Extends the provisions of the "Move Over, Slow Down" law currently in place on freeways to also apply to local streets and roads so drivers approaching a stationary emergency vehicle displaying emergency lights, including tow trucks and Caltrans vehicles, must now move to another lane when possible, or slow to a reasonable speed on all highways, not just freeways. The law is effective January 1, 2021. * License points for distracted driving (AB 47, Daly; 2019): Using a cell phone in a handheld manner while driving is currently punishable by a fine. Beginning July 1, 2021, violating the handsfree law for a second time within 36 months of a prior conviction for the same offense will result in a point being added to a driver's record. This applies to the violations of talking or texting while driving (except for handsfree use) and to any use of these devices while driving by a person under 18 years of age. * Emergency vehicles (SB 909, Dodd): Allows authorized emergency vehicles to use a "Hi-Lo" warning sound. This distinctive sound, different than a siren, would be used to notify the public of an immediate need to evacuate an area in an emergency. The CHP is currently developing regulations to standardize the Hi-Lo warning sound statewide. Until the regulations are adopted, law enforcement agencies can use the Hi-Lo warning sound by obtaining a permit from the CHP. The law went into effect September 29, 2020.

The Earliest Signs You Have COVID-19, According to Johns Hopkins As coronavirus continues to surge across the country, spotting COVID early can be crucial in treating the virus. But how can you know that you're dealing with coronavirus in the earliest days of infection? According to Johns Hopkins, there are certain telltale signs of COVID that tend to emerge sooner rather than later—five to be exact—and these could tip you off that it's time to lock down. Read on to find out what they are, and for more information on COVID symptoms, check out If Your Symptoms Appear in This Order, You May Have Severe COVID. Though the SARS-CoV-2 virus is notoriously unpredictable, doctors and researchers have begun to crack the code. By tracking when symptoms tend to appear over the course of infection, they now have a clearer picture of whether or not a patient may develop severe COVID. As Swapna Reddy, MD, a gastroenterologist at The Oregon Clinic explained to the Portland NBC News affiliate

KGW8, many severe COVID patients experience symptoms in a similar order (though not all, of course). Here is what you should be looking out for if you want to know if your symptoms could lead to a serious case. And for more tell-tale signs of coronavirus, check out If You Have These 2 Subtle Symptoms, There's a Good Chance You Have COVID. 1. According to Reddy, patients tend to present with gastrointestinal (GI) symptoms first. These early GI symptoms can start with something as minor as loss of appetite. 2. Nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea Next, Reddy says, GI symptoms tend to get more severe, like nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, and diarrhea. A November study published in the journal Abdominal Radiology showed that while up to half of COVID patients experience at least one gastrointestinal symptom, roughly 20 percent say their GI symptoms are the only symptoms. And for more on

your stomach pains, check out This Is How to Tell If Your Upset Stomach Is COVID, Doctors Say<https://bestlifeonline.com/ upset-stomach-covid/>. 3. Fever If your condition begins to improve, you may be fortunate enough to have a milder case of COVID that's ultimately limited to the GI tract. But, "when you have GI symptoms that then progress to high-fever … those sometimes can actually signify that you can get more moderate to severe disease," Reddy said. And for more factors that put you at risk of a bad case of the virus, check out If You Have This Blood Type, You're at a High Risk of Severe COVID<https://bestlifeonline. com/t ype -a- blood-severe covid/>. 4. Shortness of breath Reddy also pointed out that if your GI symptoms develop into respiratory symptoms, like shortness of breath, that could also be the sign of something more serious.

TREE N C A O I M L U J E HT Local Experience Since 1988PANY Be at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let every new year find you a better man. — Benjamin Franklin

Yikes! A Vietnam flashback that relates to today’s pandemic? Could my time there have made it easier to cope during COVID-19? Apparently so. This photo of me at the beach at the Vung Tao R&R center reminded me of how we all coped with the absolute reality that we were not going to be with family at Christmas time. There was nothing we could do about it, so we all just focused on living under the circumstances. Get this: We couldn’t drive to Bob’s Big Boy restaurant to join our friends on Friday night. We couldn’t go Christmas shopping at the mall. We couldn’t be face-to-face with our longtime friends. We wore personal protective gear when we were on duty. No professional football, baseball or basketball games to attend. No plays to attend, no museums, no drive-throughs. In our case, we got used to living with no telephones, computers, email or text messages. When it came to what we enjoyed doing at home, we were on lockdown 24/7. But we found other ways of coping when we weren’t under fire. In a sense, the enemy was our own pandemic. Just like I was in Vietnam, I’m on a fixed income with few places to spend the money. I discovered that the money we’re not spending on dining out or going to movies is now available for things I couldn’t afford before the pandemic. Now I’m using the money to buy tools and supplies to rebuild the broken-down back fence, to repair and paint the dangerous railings on the back steps, to build needed storage space, to replace the linoleum floor in the bathroom, to rebuild the ceiling fan and begin painting the outside of the house for the first time in the 37 years I’ve lived here. I go to bed exhausted, and my Vietnam nightmares have been supplanted most nights with dreams that often show me how to make repairs that troubled me that day. I look forward to each morning and the building, scraping, sanding, cementing and painting that awaits me. For now, my depression is waning and I have a reason to get up each day. And with the nearby schools closed, there are no frantic parents short-cutting down our alley at high speed to take their spoiled, fat kids to school. I don’t need to shave or use deodorant, and I’m eating my meals at home and loving the things I cook. It’s that same peace of mind I and other veterans remember when we were deployed. There were fewer daily decisions to make and there was only one enemy. Today, the enemy isn’t the Viet Cong or the North Vietnamese Army — it’s a virus that lurks behind every bush and is as invisible as the trip wire on a booby trap. We avoid little kids and adults not because they could be carrying a grenade, but because they may be carrying a virus. To my forever civilian friends. welcome to the war. Fear not — you’ll survive your combat tour at home. Don Ray

Service Learning Gives Students Purpose and Connection in Quarantine

EdChoice Public Opinion Tracker New Poll Shows Parents More Pessimistic About K-12 Than Ever

20SDG16532_WinterRates-EnergyTips_JulianNews_13x11.indd 1

(StatePoint) The typical routine a school year brings has been lost this year, as students adjust to hybrid or fully remote learning models and ever-changing reopening plans. According to McKinsey, 75% of the 50 largest school districts in the country have decided to start remotely, and the UN estimates that 94% of the world’s student population has been impacted. While the disruption the coronavirus has caused the educational system is clear, the long-term impact on students’ mental health is even greater cause for concern. Research recently published in the Journal of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry found that young people who are lonely are up to three times more likely to develop depression, creating mental health issues that could last nearly a decade. The study found that more than one-third of adolescents reported a high level of loneliness during lockdown. While these findings are alarming, utilizing service-learning to supplement traditional curriculum can give students a sense of purpose and connection, helping mitigate loneliness in a digital environment. One program that has shown success in fostering social and emotional learning is the Lead4Change Student Leadership Program, which encompasses digital lessons in leadership, as well as creating and implementing team projects to meet a need in the community. “What I want people to take away from our project is that continued on page 10

(NAPSI)—A recent poll by EdChoice and Morning Consult reveals some concerning trends in public opinion on K-12 education. Here are the main points: 1. Americans are not impressed with the pandemic responses of all sectors considered. Positive ratings of state governments dropped 5 percentage points in a month, small businesses 9 points, national media 7 points, schools 5 points, local media 6 points, the federal government 9 points, school districts 7 points and national and multi-national corporations 7 points. 2. Parents are less comfortable with children returning to inperson classes in the near future. About two-thirds of parents thought schools will not be safe until February or later. The share of school parents stating they are “Very Comfortable” or “Somewhat Comfortable” with their children returning to school dropped 11 points. 3. Positivity regarding homeschool­ing dropped. After an 18-point spike in significant favorability toward homeschooling in July, the fervor dropped 4 percentage points to 62 percent. 4. Parents are less confident about home-based learning. Three out of four parents felt at least somewhat prepared to get their child through remote learning, but fewer than two out of three do now. Additionally, parents want schools or teachers to provide curriculum and instruction for remote learning. Most parents believe school is the best place for their kids postpandemic. 5. “Pandemic pod” participation is down, though interest remains. A pod is a group of students who gather online in a shared learning space. They are usually led by a rotation of parents or a paid tutor. Participating children remain especially likely to be younger,

There’s overlapping interest in “pandemic pods” and tutoring. The same demographics are interested in tutoring for their children outside of regular school. 7. Americans are pessimistic about education. The share of respondents feeling positive about the direction of education fell by 7 percentage points for local and state education, and positivity about education nationally dropped 10 percentage points. 8. Support for all school choice policies remains high among parents. Whether it’s different learning options during the pandemic or access to new schooling types, families want choice. Parents consistently report more than 60 percent support for all types of choice, including charter schools,

Back Country Happenings Can You Recognize Signs of Stroke?

(StatePoint) Many people are avoiding in-person doctor’s visits to limit potential exposure to coronavirus -- or are simply ignoring health concerns altogether. However, when it comes to medical emergencies such as stroke, immediate medical attention is critical. The fifth leading cause of death in the U.S., stroke occurs every 40 seconds and it can happen to anyone, of any age, at any time. When 59-year-old Paul “David” Dyches had a stroke on the job this past August, he quickly realized something was very wrong. “I never experienced a feeling like this before, and I knew we had to do something right away,” says Dyches, who was experiencing classic stroke symptoms of weakness in his arms and legs. Upon his arrival at the hospital, he was evaluated via tele-neurology by experts over 150 miles away. After doctors confirmed he was experiencing a stroke, they delivered treatment immediately and he was able to be discharged the following day. While in some cases quick action can help with recovery, statistics suggest that many Americans may be avoiding hospitals when they need them most due to anxieties surrounding the pandemic. A recent study published in “JAMA Internal Medicine” showed that emergency room visits to five major healthcare systems decreased by more than 40 percent as COVID-19 cases spiked. As patients such as Dyches are learning firsthand, hospitals have a range of protocols in place to help keep patients and staff safe

from coronavirus infection. “The hospital staff set me at ease right away,” says Dyches. Beyond pandemic fears, one age-old barrier to seeking timely medical attention for stroke is simply awareness of signs and symptoms. While Dyches can credit himself with recognizing a classic symptom -- arm and leg weakness -- and reacting rapidly, only one in five U.S. adults are able to recognize 10 signs and symptoms of stroke, according to a nationwide survey*. What’s more, nearly 70 percent of the survey respondents say they’re knowledgeable about stroke, yet 62 percent falsely believe that signs of stroke come on slowly over a day or two, when in fact symptoms of stroke can come on suddenly. Experts say that immediate medical attention, which is vital, relies on everyone learning and being able to recognize the BE FAST signs and symptoms of a stroke in themselves and others and calling 911 immediately. BE FAST stands for Balance, Eyes, Face, Arm, Speech, Time and refers to these signs of stroke: • Balance: Sudden loss of balance • Eyes: Loss of vision in one or both eyes • Face: Face looks uneven or droopy • Arm: Arm or leg is weak or hanging down • Speech: Slurred speech, trouble speaking or seems confused • Time: Immediately call 911 For more shareable information and resources, visit Strokeawareness.com, developed by Genentech Inc, a

member of the Roche Group. “I am a testament to the fact that emergencies like stroke don’t stop for a global health pandemic,” says Dyches. “Anyone who experiences stroke symptoms should call 911 and get themselves to the ER as quickly as possible.” BE FAST” was developed by Intermountain Healthcare, as an adaptation of the FAST

model implemented by the American Stroke Association. Reproduced with permission from Intermountain Healthcare. © 2011 Intermountain Healthcare.

My Thoughts No Keys

by Kiki Skagen Munshi

Looking Ahead To 2021 So… Christmas is behind us, the New Year just beginning, and we all hope it’s a better one that the last. There are lots of things to hope for and quite a few other things that we can make happen. Let’s think of a few: In the HOPE category: We hope that we have a decent amount of rain in the next few months since we’ve not had a good run so far in this rainy season. We hope that the County Rainfall Measurement Deciders decide to move the rain year back from July 1-June 30 instead of having it coincide with the Federal budget year, October 1-September 30. Why they changed it is a mystery—probably some new guy had to prove he/she was innovative and actually doing something. We hope that the local coyotes don’t eat any of our pets. We hope that there will be a bit more peace and goodwill around, from world leaders to coyotes. We hope we’ll all be healthy and happy and that it will be a generally good year, without wars, famines, plague or misery. We hope we’ll get political leaders at all levels who care more about the nation and the welfare of ordinary people than about Being Important and Getting to Be MORE Important. In the THINGS WE CAN MAKE HAPPEN category…well, each of us contribute in his or her or their way, to some of the items in the HOPE category, except perhaps for influencing rainfall, coyotes, and political leaders. We can also: Make our world a bit cleaner by not littering. Use fewer resources in our everyday lives Be nicer to the people around us, especially but not exclusively those we love Live with difference—racial, political, religious and other — graciously and with understanding Give the cats a better grade of catfo….wait a minute, pussycats. Oh, dear….now readers will now who really writes these columns. All right: Stop plagiarizing from the cats and horses. Look for their names on future columns. And be thankful YOUR pets aren’t as unreasonable. Oh, and not incidentally, have a better New Year!

Why a Tech Career Might Be Right for You (StatePoint) If you have an interest in innovation, a passion for helping people and the confidence to let your creativity shine, there are exciting and rewarding career opportunities available to you in technology in almost every industry. From supporting the development of critical vaccines; building the next generation of electric vehicles; creating new and engaging ways to deliver distance learning; keeping air, food and water safe and sustainable; or bringing efficiencies to the delivery of government services, there is a career in tech waiting for you. Even better, you don’t necessarily need to be a computer whiz or math genius to land one of these jobs, as technical skills can often be taught, but professional and personal skills are often more difficult to find. Those in the know say that a growing number of employers are more interested in creativity, organization, verbal and written communications skills and a willingness to be a team player and less in technical acumen. “That’s true for people joining the labor force for the first time, returning to the workforce, burned out or hitting a ceiling in their current job, or downsized out of a job through no fault of their own,” said Todd Thibodeaux, president and CEO of CompTIA, the Computing Technology Industry Association. It’s a field that offers a certain amount of job security, too. The economic and employment disruptions brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic have had an impact on tech occupations, though not nearly to the degree that other industries have been affected. The unemployment rate for IT occupations in the U.S. stood at 2.4% in November 2020, below the national unemployment rate of 6.7%. Employers across the country continue to advertise job openings for tech workers – there were nearly 200,000 listings in November 2020. continued on page 8

This is Christmas day. We invited our POD people for breakfast and gift opening. Our POD people are the people that we see and spend time with on a regular basis. They include my son Robert who lives in Ranchita, his girlfriend Kelly and their close friend Paul. We see them at least once a week or thereabouts. My sister joined us from Flynn Springs. We spend time with her at least once each month. And we had my son Thomas, his room mate Patty and his three children here. We see them daily. With Mike and I that made eleven noisy people. As in every year, Mike cooked breakfast and we all enjoyed eating. After breakfast we opened gifts. I was especially proud of our grandchildren. They are nine, ten and eleven years old. Each of them bought a gift for Robert’s girlfriend and for Paul who they had never met and they did this without any prodding from me or anyone else that I am aware of. My grandchildren are thoughtful to anyone who isn’t their brother or sister and that tells me that we all have done a good job of raising them. All of us adults do our part because we are so close, we don’t shirk the opportunities to give the children a lesson in manners. Since my son Thomas is a single parent, and I was raised by a single parent, I know his road in raising his children is a very bumpy one. Meantime, while concentrating on wrapping gifts for ten people and helping my grandchildren choose wrapping paper and ribbons for ten people; I quit my quest to find my safe deposit keys. Fortunately, my bank was willing to drill out my safe deposit box, so that was one of this past week’s errands. Don’t think for a minute that I will quit looking for those keys. Now I know what the numbers are on them and I know the size, shape and metal type of them. I still have boxes to unpack that I can look in that were filled with who knows what years ago. I still have living room and dining room floor space to uncover. The longer I wait to unpack and/or make use of things; the less I feel a need for them. This makes it easy to shift my thoughts to clearing items out of my house and maybe finding my keys at the same time. Even though I don’t need the safe deposit box keys any more. I’m still curious about where I put them and why I put them in that particular place. Christmas is behind us and so is KWAANZA and Chanukah, so it is time to plan for our new year. I think you already know what I will be doing. Mike and I have lived in our home for twenty years and have done very little to it that didn’t need to be done. We have repaired plumbing leaks in our house and in our yard. We had the forced air heating replaced when it gave a high pitched squeal each time it came on and we added air conditioning at that time. We replaced porch light fixtures as needed and as soon as we moved in, Mike replaced some of the light switches with switches that we could see from across the room when they weren’t placed right by the door to that room. You know that sometimes people put light switches in the weirdest places. Owning our own businesses has kept us both very busy. Mike and I are people who come in our house and just set things down. If it’s convenient and out of the way, sometimes things stay in that particular place for months. Weird, right? That’s us. In addition to that, my medical issues have kept me inactive for most of the past few years. I’m not complaining at this point. I go to physical therapy and am glad that I can go to Alpine Physical Therapy right here in Julian. They do their best to keep me from aging any sooner than I need to age physically. This year I plan to make some changes. Mike was a disc jockey for around twenty-five years and we have a living room wall of LPs, CDs and no space for decorative art. This year I plan to find a new place for all of his music collection. Out of sight would be my first choice. We have another half wall of movies. Mostly VHS movies that I don’t believe we have watched in at least fifteen years, but also a growing collection of DVDs that take up space in our living room. These things have no aesthetic appeal to me and I’m not young and in need of impressing anyone with our vast collections of music and movies. I just want the collections out of sight. Painting our long halls would be a good idea too. With grandchildren somersaulting and scooting balls in the halls because Grandma won’t let them do any of those things in the living room means that a fresh coat of paint is needed. We don’t have money for paint, however I have at least six or seven one gallon partially filled paint cans from old projects that might be put together. With that in mind, our hall could end up with a really interesting shade of I don’t know what on the walls. That way I could repaint the hall and use up old paint while getting rid of old paint cans and gaining storage space. This is my idea of multi-tasking. Getting our home ready for Christmas gave me more energy than I’ve had in a long time and I’m going to continue making use of it. I haven’t found those safe deposit keys yet, but I’m not giving up. These are my thoughts.

Factbox-What Happens If The U.s. Government Runs Out Of Money On Monday? (Reuters) - Outgoing President Donald Trump's threat not to sign a $2.3 trillion spending package approved by Congress has already shuttered an emergency unemployment aid program and threatens a partial federal government shutdown at midnight on Monday. The bill provides $892 billion in coronavirus relief and $1.4 trillion to keep regular government operations running through the fiscal year. Without Trump's signature, Congress would need to pass a stopgap funding bill that he is willing to sign to keep federal agencies fully operating. The Trump administration has not said what it will do if the government runs out of money, but previous lapses have led to tens of thousands of nonessential workers being put on leave and others, including those continued on page 10

Business Trends Texts: Good, Cliches: Bad

(NAPSI)—When it comes to succeeding in business, it’s important to know what not to say and how not to say it. Fortunately, a recent survey can help you and your firm avoid these pitfalls. What Not To Say For example, people have a low tolerance for work jargon. When asked what work phrases they hate the most, respondents replied: 1. Per my last e-mail: 32% 2. We’re all in this together: 32% 3. Blue sky thinking: 29% 4. Did you get that thing I sent you?: 28% 5. Let’s touch base: 27% 6. Let’s circle back: 23% 7. Can you get this to me EOD?: 23% 8. Let’s table that: 21% 9. Let’s get this offline: 12% Essentially, the key to getting people to read and respond to a message is to keep it simple, keep it short and avoid clichés. The clearest communicators write the way they talk. How Not To Say It According to the research, respondents estimated they get 44 e-mails a day and 32 of them aren’t worth paying attention to. That comes to over 16,000 e-mails a year with 11,680 of them deemed a waste of time. The survey from SizzleDeck, a software application that makes it easy for businesses to build, share and track phone-friendly landing pages, found more than half of Americans polled have difficulty clearing their work e-mail inbox. Sending a text, however, is still an effective way to get attention. On average people check their phones 18 times during a day and are more than three times more likely to prefer to read text messages than open e-mails. In fact, three-quarters admit checking their phones first thing in the morning and last thing at night. Learn More For further facts and tips, visit www.sizzledeck.com.

Need Mortgage Relief Due To COVID-19? Here's What to Know (StatePoint) As the pandemic continues to affect Americans across the country, many are facing financial hardship. For homeowners with a Freddie Mac loan, COVID-19 mortgage assistance is available in the form of “forbearance,” which temporarily suspends or reduces your mortgage payment without penalty so you can get back on your feet. Here is how forbearance works and what happens when it ends: How do I request forbearance? To request forbearance, you must contact your loan servicer (the company listed on your mortgage statement) who will help you understand your options. Forbearance is available for up to a year, though servicers will typically start you on a shorter forbearance plan and reassess to see if your financial situation has changed. What happens when forbearance ends? It’s important to remember mortgage forbearance is not the same as mortgage forgiveness and you will have to repay your missed payments. About 30 days before the forbearance plan is scheduled to end, you and your servicer will determine next steps. This could include additional forbearance or a workout option to make up the missed payments. Just remember, you are never required to pay back missed payments in a lump sum if your loan is owned by Freddie Mac. How does repayment work? Even though you must pay back payments that were missed during forbearance, you have several options for doing so. Additionally, you won’t accrue additional fees, penalties or interest beyond the amounts already scheduled or calculated based on the terms of your mortgage. For example, let’s say you enter into a forbearance agreement of three months. If your monthly mortgage payment is $1,000, you will owe about $3,000 in missed mortgage payments at the end of your forbearance term. Your servicer can help you determine the workout option that works best for you, including: • Full repayment, where you pay back the missed payments all at once. • Repayment plans, which allow you to catch up gradually while you are paying your regular monthly payment. • Payment deferral, which allows you to resume making your normal monthly payment. Your servicer can work with you to leverage alternative ways for you to pay back the missed payments from your forbearance period at a later date and in a manner that is affordable. • Modification of the loan, which changes the terms of your loan, usually to reduce your original monthly payment amount. Your servicer can help with a modification that might suit your new circumstances. Additional Information: To stay on track with paying down your loan balance and less interest over the life of the loan, it’s important that you resume your payments as soon as you’re financially able. Keep in mind that while you’re not charged “extra” interest, you won’t be paying down your principal, and the interest will continue to accrue on your unpaid mortgage balance. For information on forbearance and how to get help with your mortgage, visit My Home by Freddie Mac at myhome.freddiemac. com. Remember, contacting your servicer is the first step in getting help with your mortgage payments if you are facing financial hardship due to COVID-19 or for other reasons. They can explore available options with you and determine what works best for your circumstances.

Chef’s Corner Stress-Busting Foods

A few years ago, Dr. Mehmet Oz asked me to create a recipe containing foods that help to naturally reduce stress and to do a cooking demo on “The Dr. Oz Show.” I found that the following ingredients have stressreducing properties: * Red, Orange and Yellow Bell Peppers -- These peppers contain vitamins A and C and folate, which help give you more energy and repair cell damage caused by stress. When under prolonged stress, the body gets depleted of vitamin C, an antioxidant

that fights the free radicals that get released when you’re stressed. These free radicals have been shown to cause cancer. * Turkey -- An amino acid called L-tryptophan contained in turkey triggers the release of serotonin, which is a feel-good, muscle-relaxing brain chemical.

L-tryptophan has a calming effect. Turkey also contains tyrosine, an amino acid that helps your brain produce the neurotransmitters dopamine and norepinephrine. Activating those chemicals helps your brain work faster and be more effective at handling complex mental problems. continued on page 11

Christmas Devil

Krampus is a legendary German figure who visits children on Dec. 6 to find bad children, catch them with his very long tongue, beat them with sticks and take them away to the underworld. This evil man was part of holiday lore for centuries, but this frightening idea was suppressed. The Catholic Church forbade the celebrations, and it was considered an evil political idea after World War II. Antique figurines and drawings of Krampus are still found in searches for antiques, although rarely are recognized. In the past 25 years, Krampus has reappeared in two new books of old postcards picturing him, a comic book, a TV show, movies

Christmas celebrations were very different centuries ago. Along with a gift-giving Santa, there was devil

punishing children, drunken men chasing people and coal for bad children. Krampus, this strange man, was to be feared. He took bad children away. This figure is a 19th century version of the horned devil. He sold for $1,600. and an art exhibit for the "cool" crowd. In Europe on Dec. 5, there have been celebrations with drunken men in devil costumes chasing people in the streets. But some are remembering Krampus in a friendlier way, by selling pieces of chocolate shaped like devils. This 33-inch-tall Krampus figure with golden horns was made in Germany. He is covered in black fur and holds a chain and basket full of naughty children. It sold at a Bertoia auction for $1,560. *** Q: I have a set of nativity figures that came with a Certificate of Authenticity that reads "Original Lepi Woodcarvings." It says they are made of maplewood, and

carved and painted at Ortisei in Val Gardena, Italy "following an original design of Rupert Reindl, our famous master sculptor." I have the box they came in. I'd like to know something about the maker. A: Ortisei is an Italian town in Val Gardena (Garden Valley). Woodcarvers have worked in this area since the 1600s. At first, they made practical items for the home and farm. Eventually, the town became a center of decorative woodcarving, especially nativity sets and other figures. Lepi is a woodcarving workshop founded by Leo Prinoth in 1920. The company still is in business, and it makes wooden figures based on designs by Rupert Reindl (1908-1990) and other wellknown woodcarvers. Christmas woodcarvings sell for half or less than the original price. *** CURRENT PRICES Christmas postcard, Santa Claus, seated at desk, working

As a young adult and in my early years of marriage, I did not value hospitality primarily because I confused it with entertaining. When I heard the word, I pictured hors d’oeuvres and table decorations. In other words, things you don’t do for yourself but often do to impress guests. Since practicality is important to me, I saw hospitality as an unnecessary use of time and money. It wasn’t until I went to seminary that I learned that hospitality is not the same as entertainment. Hospitality is something much more than hors d’oeuvres and table decorations. Hospitality comes from the same root word as hospice and hospital. Hospice suggests shelter and hospital suggests healing. With those images in mind, we can think of hospitality as a kind of sheltering that is healthy or healing. You can find hospitality described in both the Old and New Testaments of the Bible. In Romans 12:13 we see the clearest instruction regarding hospitality. Listed among other characteristics of true Christians it says simply, “Extend hospitality to strangers.” Hospitality obviously is not exclusively Christian. It was and is an essential practice in desert cultures. As you can imagine, if you refuse assistance to someone who is traveling in that harsh environment, it could result in their death. Patricia de Jong, in her book We Shall Not Want, explains that in some desert cultures, if you are being chased by someone trying to harm you, you could seek refuge within a stranger’s camp while your enemy had to wait outside for two nights and a day. During that time of waiting, your enemy might cool off, or give up, or change his mind. After learning all this, I began to see hospitality as something extremely practical, even life saving. Hospitality also includes care for a person’s spirit. At most homeless shelters, new arrivals are given the basics: a cot, a blanket and a plain hot meal. Mary Jo Copeland believes that is not enough. At her charity in Minneapolis, Mary Jo gets down on her knees and washes their feet. That simple gesture of compassion and respect was enough to bring tears to the eyes of Wayne Irving, a homeless laborer who arrived in Minneapolis by bus from Chicago. "Nobody ever did this for me," he said, sitting over a basin of hot, sudsy water as Mary Jo wearing a pair of thin rubber surgical gloves, rubbed his callused feet with antiseptic ointment. Mary Jo began offering hospitality for body and spirit in a storefront on the edge of downtown Minneapolis in 1985 with little more than a card table and a couple of coffeepots. It has grown into an organization called Sharing and Caring Hands. They provide over 3,300 beds to adults and children that would otherwise be sleeping on the floor and serve over 157,000 meals each year. They provide free clothing and a place to shower. Their free cental clinic provids free services to the low- or no-income children and adults. Mary Jo has been referred to as Minnesota's Mother Teresa. She doesn’t get paid for her work. She believes what Jesus said about helping the less fortunate in memory of him. She says, "That's why I wash their feet.” In the book of Matthew chapter 25, Jesus tells us that we have the opportunity to encounter him as we give food or drink or shelter or companionship to someone who needs it. Clearly, Mary Jo is a rare individual. Most of us will not/ cannot do what she has done but each one of us can and should choose to be hospitable, to welcome strangers and offer care to those in need. Acts of hospitality don’t have to

Who Checks The Fact-Checkers?

by Jon Coupal

“Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?” is the question posed by the Roman poet Juvenal from his “Satires.” It is literally translated as “Who will guard the guards themselves?” The quote has several variations including, “Who watches the watchers?” and “Who will watch the watchmen?” Our question is “Who factchecks the fact-checkers?” As the name suggests, “factchecking” refers to the process of verifying factual information for the purpose of promoting the truthfulness and accuracy of journalistic reporting. Even though journalism in America has existed since the nation’s inception, “fact-checking” as a term of art didn’t make an appearance until the early 2000s. Prior to that, the reliability of a story would depend on the integrity of the reporter and the watchful eye of an obsessive editor. Today, “fact-checking” frequently refers to after-the-fact review of a story or statement by a third party. Those on the center-right of the political spectrum have noticed for years that “fact-checkers” apply a harsher standard to Republicans and, even worse, won’t bother to fact check some of the most outrageous lies of progressives or Democrats. Mark Hemingway of the Washington Examiner, a conservative-leaning publication, wrote a piece in 2011 entitled “Lies, Damn Lies and ‘Fact Checkers.’” In it he notes that “fact-checkers” attempt to give themselves “a veneer of objectivity doubling as a license to go after any remark by a public figure they find disagreeable for any reason.” More recently, Adi Robertson, writing for technology news outlet The Verge, observed that “fact-checking is becoming a political cudgel.” To illustrate this from a story just last week, the Sacramento Bee published its own version of a “fact-check.” The article, published on Dec. 14, was headline, “Fact Check: Mitch McConnell says Democrats want

to create a ‘slush fund’ for Gavin Newsom” and the Bee labeled the story as “Untrue.” But from a conservative point of view, the “slush fund” label is more truthful than not. In a nutshell, Republicans and Democrats in Washington are at loggerheads over another round of economic relief for a national economy bludgeoned by the pandemic-induced government shutdown. Republicans have insisted on liability protection for businesses and health-care providers while Democrats demand that state and local governments receive funds along with the private sector. The “slush fund” label is credible because it is unclear that there would be limits on how the states and local governments could spend the money. Republicans are justified in their contention that blue states like California, New York and Illinois have mismanaged their economies. Red states that are more fiscally prudent shouldn’t have to subsidize bailouts to those states that are not. But the real problem with the Bee’s “fact-check” piece is that it never mentions the real reason McConnell called it a slush fund: Pension obligations. Unfunded pension obligations, mostly in blue states, is the driving force behind the Democrats’ push to have local and state government bailouts as part of the COVID-19 aid package. It is a verifiable fact that Sen. Mitch McConnell used the phrase “slush fund.” But whether federal dollars given directly to the states and local governments constitutes a “slush fund” is a matter of opinion. Ironically, it is the liberal publication The New Republic that made the following cogent observation: “The trouble is, fact-checkers have expanded their purview from checking strictly empirical statements to ‘checking’ contestable political statements.” I agree. *** Jon Coupal is the president of the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association (HJTA).

Woodbine, Saddlebrook, NJ

Howdy From Lake Cuyamaca

If he can deliver on his climate and environment promises, Joe Biden could go down as the greenest U.S. president in history. Credit: jlhervàs, FlickrCC The world collectively faces the threat of climate change driven by human-made pollutants and environmental degradation. Presidentelect Joe Biden has made it clear that he intends to work to address and mitigate the climate crisis as the U.S. president. The President-elect has set a goal to reach net-zero emissions within the U.S. by 2050, promises to rejoin the Paris Climate Accord immediately upon entering office, and aims to create 10 million new jobs within the clean energy economy. The Biden Plan outlines his strategy to address climate change while securing environmental justice and equitable economic opportunity. One thing that the Biden Plan prioritizes and engrains into every aspect of its proposal is the importance of creating jobs and workers’ unions throughout the transition to a more sustainable economy. The Biden Plan will cost around $2 trillion. This covers investments in infrastructure, an American-based energy efficient automobile industry, increased public transportation options, a sustainable power sector, weatherized buildings and housing, scientific innovations, climate-smart agriculture and conservation, and efforts to promote environmental justice. Despite his lack of clarity on whether or not he supports the Green New Deal (GND), Biden has worked together with several key players such as Bernie Sanders and the youth-driven Sunrise Movement to develop his own climate plan. After these collaborations, the main differences that still stand between the GND and the Biden Plan are how much would be spent ($10 trillion in the GND versus $2 trillion in the Biden Plan), their goals for carbon neutrality (GND aims for carbon neutrality in 10 years, while the Biden Plan aims for 2050), and their outlook on hydraulic fracturing (fracking) to extract oil and gas. In addition to his climate plan, Biden’s cabinet will also play a large role in pushing through his environmental agenda. Deb Haaland, Biden’s pick to run the Interior Department, would be the first Native American to hold a cabinet secretary position. Biden also nominated Michael Regan as Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) administrator and Brenda Mallory as Chair of the Council of Environmental Quality. They would be the first Black man and woman to hold these positions. Some of Biden’s Obama-era nominees include former EPA head Gina McCarthy as national climate adviser, John Kerry as the international presidential envoy on climate change, and Tom Vilsack as agriculture secretary. Overall, there has never been a cabinet with so much focus on climate. One of the biggest ways we can help as individuals is to urge our Senators to confirm Biden’s cabinet choices. How much of Biden’s climate and environmental hopes and dreams come true depends on many factors, but one thing that’s for certain, he will likely go down in history as one of the greenest presidents ever.

A very Merry Christmas from ole “Dusty Britches” here !!! Sometime, in Rome, around the year 336 the Christians started celebrating the birth of Jesus. A lot of the stuff, it seems, that developed with the yearly celebrations came from the Germas… the tree, decorations, lights, etc. I can remember going over to the grand-parents house of Tyche Edwards with Benton Hart once for Christmas dinner around 1968-69, their names were Lois and Alfie Lewis. If you can remember the old house on the west side of Hwy 79 across from the Mason Valley Truck Trail. Bill Brooking still grazes cattle out there now. A little history to that home and how it got there (which burnt in the 2003 Cedar Fire). It was originally built for Robert W. Waterman at the Stonewall Mine and, on the wall next to the dining room table inside was a picture of that house being skidded on a sled by teams of oxen from the Stonewall Mine across the upper Cuyamaca lake basin to where it became the residence for Lois and Alfie Lewis. Alfie found out that the Dyar family was razing (getting rid of) all the structures at the Stonewall and decided he wanted that house. Game on… He relocated the house and made it his permanent residence. Alfie had an old “C” cab flatbed and took care of the fences for the old Lucky 5 Ranch riding fence line several days at a time with a bed-roll in the back of the truck he would either sleep in the flatbed of the truck or on the ground. Benton Hart had known them for years… ole Dusty just happened to work for Benton Hart at the time, so I got to go along… probably my junior year in high school. Lois and Alfie were of German descent and I was in for a treat. You see, Loi (her name was Lois but went by Loi) made her own decorations for the tree… but the best thing was that she illuminated it with candles. Yep, she would trim away and above from each location that she decided to put a candle. Each candle had a small silver clip and platform for the candle to sit. When I asked in amazement about it, she merely said that it was the way they did it in the old country. We had electricity but she did it her way.

I had ever seen. A night never to be forgotten by this old goat. Christmas has been literally explained as Mass on Christ’s Day… makes sense to me… Some of “Dusty’s favorite Christmas comedies I have watched through the years include ELF, Scrooged, Earnest Saves Christmas, Trading Places, Jingle All The Way, Bad Santa, A Christmas Story, Home Alone, and of course…..National Lampoon’s “Christmas Vacation”. The trout are still coming out at a moderate rate… some very nice sizes too. I have had reports of a Golden Eagle on the hunt around the old watering hole, and those damn cormorants are back !!! I swear they can smell when we stock trout… Dave is wearing out his pellet rifle trying to keep the wood peckers from pecking holes in his new log cabin and Nellie from up the hill hung her clothes out to dry, but, by the looks of it, she forgot to wash a couple pair of her husband’s underwear… skid marks. We are trying a new approach to controlling our squirrel, mouse, rat, and small rodent population… Jay Blaylock and the men are building some owl boxes for our local owls to nest in and hopefully, holistically manage the rodent issue we have without needing to use some of the other methods that aren’t so nice. So if you come out to the Lake… keep an eye out for the boxes, and if you see an owl living in one... we would like to know. There’s not much to report on the young Labrador as he hasn’t really surprised us lately… maybe we are just getting accustomed to his ways. Merry Christmas to all, and Happy New Year… Happy Trails from the Britches family… Dusty, Dainty, Dirty, Smelly, Holely, Ripped, and Wet. “Actions speak louder than words, but not nearly as often”… Mark Twain. “Tight Lines and Bent Rods, take a kid Fishin”… Dusty Britches

US Congress approves $900B COVID relief bill All of the relief programs are at risk unless an agreement can be reached. VACCINE DISTRIBUTION: The federal government has already purchased 400 million COVID-19 vaccine doses, or enough for 200 million people, from Moderna and Pfizer but needs additional funds to purchase more doses. It also signed contracts with other companies for vaccines that have yet to be authorized. Private companies, including McKesson, UPS and FedEx, are distributing the doses but have been relying on staff in the Department of Defense and the Department of

Here's what would likely happen if the White House and Congress cannot agree on a spending plan: PANDEMIC ECONOMIC ASSISTANCE: The legislation would provide $600 stimulus checks to millions of struggling Americans. Trump, in one of his chief criticisms of the bill, has said the payouts are too small and has demanded the checks be increased to $2000. Unemployment benefits being paid out to about 14 million Americans through pandemic programs lapsed on Saturday, but could be restarted if Trump signs the bill. The bill would keep the benefits going through midMarch. The spending package also

even through isolation, you can still find ways to help out in your community,” says Genesis Morgane, a student from Garner, N.C. who created the “Corona Relief Crew” through the program, distributing kits with essential food and supplies to the homeless and those in nursing homes who have been severely impacted by the pandemic. While the pandemic meant that students had to rapidly adjust to physical distancing guidelines, they were successful in completing their project and building meaningful relationships in a remote environment. “The most amazing part of their efforts was that everything was done virtually,” says Dr. Cleopatra Lacewell, the teacher overseeing the Corona Relief Crew. “The youth had to engage one another through emails, texts and a computer screen, which is often a challenge for me as an adult.” The Corona Relief Crew was honored by Lead4Change with a $10,000 grant for the nonprofit of their choice, but an equally rewarding outcome of the project was instilling in its participants a sense of meaning in connection in their community. “We decided that everyone is at home, alone, having to stay in quarantine and distance themselves from everyone else,” says Morgane. “We said, ‘Why don’t we think about them and let them know that we have not forgotten about them.’” For more information about the Lead4Change Student Leadership Program and accompanying Challenge, visit lead4change.org. The disruption students face due to the pandemic is widespread, but not evenly distributed. The UN’s research found that groups that are already vulnerable when it comes to receiving education— those living in poor or rural areas, girls, refugees, and persons with disabilities—experience the greatest impact. The good news is that many digital programs like Lead4Change, which is a free program for all participants, only require enthusiasm and investment of time from students and their teachers.

Health and Human Services for support. States have received $340 million from the U.S. government to help offset costs they have borne from the vaccine rollout but say they face a shortfall of around $8 billion. A shutdown would halt plans by Congress to distribute funding to make up for that shortfall. HEALTHCARE: Previous shutdowns have led to widespread furloughs for workers at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), one of the agencies leading the response to the coronavirus pandemic. A CDC program to track flu outbreaks was halted during a 2013 shutdown; in 2018, the government kept the program running during another shutdown, saying "immediate response to urgent disease outbreaks" would continue.

During that period, the United States was unable to send paychecks to service members and civilian employees. Active-duty military personnel were considered essential workers; some civilian employees and contractors were furloughed. LAW ENFORCEMENT: The FBI and other law enforcement agencies continued working during previous shutdowns. The FBI Agents Association said after the last shutdown that funding lapses made it harder to pursue cases, in part because they were unable to pay informants.

FINANCIAL OVERSIGHT: Market regulators were forced to furlough staff during the last shutdown.

When consumed over a period of time, the calcium in dairy also has been shown to calm muscles and help keep blood pressure in check. * Avocado -The monounsaturated fats and potassium in avocados help lower blood pressure. Avocados have more potassium than bananas.

Cover the dish with foil, and bake the peppers 15 to 20 minutes, until they start to soften. 2. Meanwhile, heat the remaining 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large skillet over mediumhigh heat. Add the onion, garlic, salt, black pepper, chili powder and cumin; cook until the vegetables are softened, about 3 minutes. Add the sausage or ground turkey, breaking it apart with a fork and cooking until lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Add the salsa and spinach. Cook, stirring occasionally, about 5 minutes. Remove the skillet from the heat. Stir in the cooked quinoa and/or brown rice. 3. Fill the pepper halves with the turkey mixture. Cover with foil. Bake 20-25 minutes until peppers are tender. Remove foil and sprinkle peppers with cheese. Return to oven; bake, uncovered, until cheese has melted. Top peppers with avocado slices, yogurt and basil.
