New COVID-19 Variants

Back Country Covid-19 Cases

January 6, 2021

Information about the characteristics of these variants is rapidly emerging. Scientists are working to learn more about how easily they might spread, whether they could cause more severe illness, and whether currently authorized vaccines will protect people against them. Currently, there is no evidence that these variants cause more severe illness or increased risk of death. What we know Viruses constantly change through mutation, and new variants of a virus are expected to occur over time. Sometimes new variants emerge and disappear. Other times, new variants emerge and start infecting people. Multiple variants of the virus that causes COVID-19 have been documented in the United States and globally during this pandemic. The virus that causes COVID-19 is a type of coronavirus, a large family of viruses. Coronaviruses are named for the crown-like spikes on their surfaces. Scientists monitor changes in the virus, including changes to the spikes on the surface of the virus. These studies, including genetic analyses of the virus, are helping us understand how changes to the virus might affect how it spreads and what happens to people who are infected with it. Multiple COVID-19 variants are circulating globally. In the United Kingdom (UK), a new variant has emerged with an unusually large number of mutations. This variant seems to spread more easily and quickly than other variants. Currently, there is no evidence that it causes more severe illness or increased risk of death. This variant was first detected in September 2020 and is now highly prevalent in London and southeast England. It has since been detected in numerous countries around the world, including the United States and Canada. In South Africa, another variant has emerged independently of the variant detected in the UK. This variant, originally detected in early October, shares some mutations with the variant detected in the UK. There have been cases caused by this variant outside of South Africa. This variant seems to spread more easily and quickly than other variants. Currently, there is no evidence that it causes more severe illness or increased risk of death. In Nigeria, another distinct variant also has been detected. What we do not know Scientists are working to learn more about these variants, and more studies are needed to understand: How widely these new variants have spread How the new variants differ How the disease caused by these new variants differs from the disease caused by other variants that are currently circulating What it means Public health officials are studying these variants quickly to learn more so that they can control their spread. They want to understand whether the variants: Spread more easily from person to person Cause milder or more severe disease in people Are detected by currently available viral tests Respond to medicines currently being used to treat people for COVID-19 Change the effectiveness of COVID-19 vaccines. There is no evidence that this is occurring, and most experts believe this is unlikely to occur because of the nature of the immune response to the virus. What CDC is doing CDC, in collaboration with other public health agencies, is monitoring the situation closely. CDC is working to detect and characterize emerging viral variants and expand its ability to look for COVID-19 and new variants. Furthermore, CDC has staff available on-theground support to investigate the characteristics of viral variants. As new information becomes available, CDC will provide updates.

County Fire Authority Starts New Year with New Name

by Donnie Ryan, County of San Diego Communications Office

The year 2021 will mean a new name for the San Diego County Fire Authority as the organization has been recently renamed the San Diego County Fire Protection District. The name change became official Dec. 7 when the San Diego Local Agency Formation Commission (LAFCO) voted 8-0 in favor of becoming a dependent special district under the San Diego County Board of Supervisors. LAFCO oversees the establishment and organization of special districts. “The San Diego County Fire Protection District has been a long time coming,” said Herman Reddick, the district’s director. “It is the natural progression of growth and provides the long-term stability of the organization.” According to Reddick, in the last five years San Diego County Fire has been able to make significant improvements by increasing permanent career staffing and the assignment of paramedics at all San Diego County Fire Protection District stations and increasing the level of services provided to county residents. CAL FIRE/San Diego Fire Chief Tony Mecham said the actions to create the new district help to correct a decision made in the 1970s when the County of San Diego terminated the contract with California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection for fire services. “Supervisor Dianne Jacob and LAFCO began working on this issue in 1993 and after 27 years the fire district has become a reality,” said Mecham. “Last year, the voters in San Diego voted in favor of adding fire protection services to the San Diego County Charter. These two actions will ensure that fire protection services will always be provided across our 1.7-million-acre service area.” The San Diego County Fire Protection District is comprised of elements from both the State of California and the County of San Diego working in unison as a single organization. More than 500 sworn personnel operate 35 fire stations to ensure San Diego County residents are living safely. The designation as a fire protection district is just one step in County Fire’s continuous efforts to achieve operational excellence in all programs and areas of responsibility.

What The Federal Stimulus Package Means For California

by Laurel Rosenhall (

The federal stimulus package that lawmakers in Washington have agreed to is “very encouraging news” for California, Gov. Gavin Newsom said Monday(December 21)as he outlined how much of the $900 billion federal package is likely to flow to the Golden State. “While it’s a lower number than we had hoped for, it is nonetheless significant,” the governor said. The package did not include aid for state and local governments that Newsom spent months lobbying for. He said Congress “will need to do more in the future.” But he didn’t dwell on that Monday, instead focusing on how a cash infusion estimated at about $50 billion — most of it for unemployment and direct stimulus checks — will help struggling Californians: “It’s money directly in your pocket,” he said. While he cautioned that the figures are initial estimates, Newsom said California expects to receive: $20 billion in unemployment assistance (based on payments of $300/week for 11 weeks) $17 billion in direct stimulus checks of $600 each to lower-income Californians $2 billion in rental assistance $1.3 billion for COVID-19 testing, tracing and vaccines $8.5 billion for schools, community colleges and universities $1 billion for childcare $2 billion for transportation California businesses will also receive relief from the $325 billion allotted to help small businesses nationwide, though Newsom did not provide an estimate of how much would flow to the state. The federal aid was announced as Newsom prepares to present his budget proposal to state lawmakers in early January. Though many Californians lost jobs during the coronavirus pandemic, state tax revenue came in above expectations and the legislative analyst expects the state budget will be padded by a $26 billion windfall in the coming year. Newsom said the budget he’ll propose will include more support for small and medium businesses as well as assistance for people continued on page 8

(StatePoint) As we head into 2021, adults and kids alike may still be enjoying the excitement of digital devices received as gifts over the holidays. However, the new year is always a great time for a reset, so alongside those new devices, consider adopting some new digital habits. Here are some great ideas for helping your family build healthier relationships with their digital devices: • Get healthy: Not all screen time is wasted time. You can use your device in positive, productive ways that help your family work toward improved physical health. For example, a steps counter might encourage your family to move more or even take up running, while a yoga app can help guide your family through quick routines you can practice from the comfort of home. • Get smart: Likewise, the members of your family can use their devices to exercise their minds. Encourage everyone to let their smartphones and tablets double function as e-readers, and to download apps that teach new skills and build knowledge. You can even try setting a goal as a family, such as learning a new language using the same app. • Schedule digital downtime: Too much screen time is associated with poor quality sleep, increased anxiety and a range of other physical and mental health concerns, so be sure each day includes digital downtime. This is especially important if your family is working and learning from home right now. Make the most of these screenfree blocks by engaging in active play, moving, getting fresh air or spending quality time together. • Get assistance: Making sure every member of the family is using their device only in safe and healthy ways is easier said than done, however, a parental guidance app can help. Using OurPact for example, the most comprehensive parental control app, you can remotely establish automated schedules for when internet, apps and the device itself are unavailable. Features include URL whitelisting and blacklisting, daily screen time allowances and iMessage/SMS blocking, helping ensure device usage passes your approval. Available at the iOS App Store and Google Play Store, parents can also sign up for an account at For better overall health and wellness, make 2021 the year your family adopts great digital habits.

Sedition is overt conduct, such as speech and organization, that tends toward rebellion against the established order. Sedition often includes subversion of a constitution and incitement of discontent toward, or rebellion against, established authority. Sedition may include any commotion, though not aimed at direct and open violence against the laws. Seditious words in writing are seditious libel. A seditionist is one who engages in or promotes the interest of sedition. Because sedition is overt, it is typically not considered a subversive act, and the overt acts that may be prosecutable under sedition laws vary from one legal code to another. Where the history of these legal codes has been traced, there is also a record of the change in the definition of the elements constituting sedition at certain points in history. This overview has served to develop a sociological definition of sedition as well, within the study of state persecution. U.S. Code § 2384 - Seditious conspiracy If two or more persons in any State or Territory, or in any place subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, conspire to overthrow, put down, or to destroy by force the Government of the United States, or to levy war against them, or to oppose by force the authority thereof, or by force to prevent, hinder, or delay the execution of any law of the United States, or by force to seize, take, or possess any property of the United States contrary to the authority thereof, they shall each be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both. U.S. Code § 2385 - Advocating overthrow of Government Whoever knowingly or willfully advocates, abets, advises, or teaches the duty, necessity, desirability, or propriety of overthrowing or destroying the government of the United States or the government of any State, Territory, District or Possession thereof, or the government of any political subdivision therein, by force or violence, or by the assassination of any officer of any such government; or Whoever, with intent to cause the overthrow or destruction of any such government, prints, publishes, edits, issues, circulates, sells, distributes, or publicly displays any written or printed matter advocating, advising, or teaching the duty, necessity, desirability, or propriety of overthrowing or destroying any government in the United States by force or violence, or attempts to do so; or Whoever organizes or helps or attempts to organize any society, group, or assembly of persons who teach, advocate, or encourage the overthrow or destruction of any such government by force or violence; or becomes or is a member of, or affiliates with, any such society, group, or assembly of persons, knowing the purposes thereof— Shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both, and shall be ineligible for employment by the United States or any department or agency thereof, for the five years next following his conviction. If two or more persons conspire to commit any offense named in this section, each shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both, and shall be ineligible for employment by the United States or any department or agency thereof, for the five years next following his conviction. As used in this section, the terms “organizes” and “organize”, with respect to any society, group, or assembly of persons, include the recruiting of new members, the forming of new units, and the regrouping or expansion of existing clubs, classes, and other units of such society, group, or assembly of persons.

5 Steps Schools Are Taking To Help Feed Children During The Pandemic

(Family Features) Nearly 30 million children in the United States rely on school meals for a significant portion of their daily nutrition. Since the start of the pandemic, the number of food-insecure children has increased 20% to 1 in 4. Although many schools are operating remote or hybrid models, most are still open full-time for feeding students. An issue-framing report by GENYOUth, a national nonprofit dedicated to creating healthier school communities, addresses what's at stake for schools today, progress that has been made, challenges they face and key opportunities that exist. It concludes that although the role of the school building has changed this year, health-promoting schools supporting the "whole child," including ensuring children receive proper nutrition, matter more than ever for students to live full, productive lives. Due to COVID-19, school nutrition professionals, bus drivers and volunteers are taking measures to distribute and deliver school meals through a variety of methods that enable social distancing, including grab and go, bus stop drop off and drive-thru pick up. Creating Extended Meal Pickup Times During the initial lockdown, many families were home and had greater flexibility to pick up meals during a narrow window of time. However, as people return to more typical work schedules, their availability to take advantage of provided meals is compressing. Some districts are expanding, even doubling, their pickup windows to provide greater access for families. Eliminating Barriers to Providing Meals School feeding programs are typically required to collect income eligibility applications from families to determine if children are eligible for free or reduced-price meals. Due to the pandemic, the United States Department of Agriculture is allowing schools to waive those requirements and offer free meals to every student. In addition, many school feeding sites don't require students to be present to pick up food; parents, siblings or caregivers can collect the meals. Raising Awareness of Options and Locations In response to crisis-level food-insecurity, GENYOUth, working with multinational software corporation SAP, engineered the SAP4Kids digital school-meal locator app so families in need can find food and other resources near them amid the pandemic while also providing ways for organizations to offer additional support. Providing Multiple Meals at a Time Scheduling is also a factor, leading some schools to offer multiple meals at a time. Whether it's meals for a full day or enough food for several days, offering multiple meals at a single pickup time streamlines scheduling for both the school and families. In addition, it reduces points of contact, helping to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission. Seeking Assistance and Support Federal funding continues to support school meal programs, but schools are also partnering with a wide range of organizations committed to students' nutrition needs. One example is GENYOUth's Emergency School Meal Delivery Fund, which has provided thousands of schools with millions of dollars in grants and in-kind support. The fund provides monetary grants to schools to supply resources for meal distribution and delivery to help ensure children continue getting nutritious meals. "We are at an extraordinary moment where schools are taking unprecedented, heroic measures to get meals to kids," said Alexis Glick, CEO of GENYOUth. "Our fund provides grants to schools for the equipment, transportation and resources they need to feed kids daily. I believe the only hunger children should face is a hunger to learn." To learn more about the report or donate to the COVID-19 Emergency School Meal Delivery Fund, visit or text "SCHOOLS" to 20222 to make a one-time donation of $25.

(NAPSI)—For many Boomers, retirement may involve taking vacations, taking up a new hobby, and spending more time with family, friends and the grandchildren. In anticipation of these activities, Boomers work diligently to build up their next egg. But as Boomers age, and as healthcare costs rise, one item they must account for is care in retirement. Unfortunately, too many are failing to prepare.

With this in mind, they should take the following steps to help protect their nest eggs: 1. Keep moving. Good physical health can lead to a more active life, improved mental and emotional health, and reduced medical expenses. By keeping yourself healthy and fit, you may be able to lower your premiums and potential future costs. Set time aside each day to stay active—your health and your bank account will thank you. 2. Save, save, save. It’s never too early to start financially planning for retirement care. Recent data from the Center for a Secure Retirement and Bankers Life shows that more than half (54%) of working adults say their retirement planning has taken a hit amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Protect yourself from further unforeseen impact by taking advantage of tools and resources that can help you better prepare for the high costs of long-term care. 3.

My Thoughts by Michele Harvey

Sitting At My Desk

by Kiki Skagen Munshi

The Dog That Came To Visit Hilda the Akita loves Julian (who doesn’t?) and can hardly wait to come back. The cats would be happy if they never saw her again. Akitas are interesting dogs. Bred originally in Japan to hunt bears, like Huskies and Norwegian Elkhounds Akitas are closer to wolves genetically than most dogs and, as a result, a bit… different. An Akita is not like, for instance, a cocker spaniel. Most Akitas are not as easily trained as, say, a Labrador. This is not to say that the cats would like either a cocker spaniel or a Labrador in the neighborhood as they haven’t met a dog they didn’t hate at first sight, but they could deal with one of those perhaps more easily than with an Akita. Cats aside, Hilda is very Well Brought Up, not to mentioned beautifully trained and smart, and she became a Ranch Dog instantly. She learned quickly not to bark at the hens; she patrolled the perimeter of the buildings regularly. It took a bit of time to become accustomed to the horses—sniffing noses with Hidalgo was fine but when Hidalgo was joined by Haiduc and Ben, all Very Large and Very Curious, Hilda decided the other side of the fence worked well for her. Hilda didn’t go off by herself in spite of being unleashed and free from the getgo. Free while the cats fumed at their window. Free while the cats were incarcerated in the house to avoid being loved with Hilda’s teeth… It will take a bit more teaching on the next visit to make sure that Hilda knows these cats are not to be chased, chewed or otherwise molested. Next visit? The cats just sat up and hissed. Interestingly, the coyotes hung around at night, yipping and yapping while Hilda snoozed upstairs in the other building with her owner, otherwise known as The Kid. The coyotes decamped during the day when Hilda was out and about. The cats looked at one another and wondered how many coyotes it would take to eat Hilda… "The wolf shall live with the lamb, the leopard shall lie down with the kid, the calf and the lion and the fatling together…” and the cats aren’t buying it but we’ll see. Maybe during a summer visit…

I’m sitting at my desk wondering why I’m so cold. Unlike many people in this world, I have a plethora of jackets, sweaters, vests and scarves that I can wear to make myself warmer. I like that word Plethora. It means I have an overabundance of jackets, vests, sweaters and scarves. Earlier this year I thinned out my wardrobe and it seems like I need to do it again. I’m in a mood for writing and not in a mood for walking to the other end of the house to pick out something warm to put on, which might sound silly. However, when I’m in a mood to write, I don’t like to distract myself. When I watch the television news and I see people who have no more than what they are wearing, and I see that the weather is cold where they are, and their clothing is not enough; I wish I could take clothes out of my closet and hand things directly to them. However, I could help clothe just a few of the thousands of people who are in need and I have no way of feeding any of them. I see and hear on the nightly news that people around the world do not even have enough food to eat one meal per day. This isn’t just happening in third world countries. It is also happening here in our own U.S of A. Here in San Diego County, we are fortunate to have more that one way to get free food. Here in Julian, we have Feeding San Diego food distribution every second and fourth Wednesday mornings from 9:30 until 10:30. It’s a drive through at the west end of the county library parking lot. You open your trunk and volunteers place your food in the trunk of your car. On the fourth Saturday morning of each month from 9 a.m. until 10:30 a.m. Mountain Manna distributes food at Julian’s Community Methodist Church. During the current virus conditions, it works the same way as the Feeding San Diego system works. You drive in, you open your trunk, volunteers place your food in the trunk, and you drive away. There is a difference. At the beginning of each year, if you want to get food from Mountain Manna, you register your name and show proof that you make a small income and you need the food assistance. Feeding San Diego asks no questions. Mountain Manna gives a larger variety of food. In addition to the food distributions that we have in our area, we have three food pantries. The Op Shop thrift store run by Julian Elementary School’s Pathways is open on weekend days and has non-perishable food stuffs. Take what you need. We also have two Little Food Pantries. One is in front of the Julian Brewing Company and the other which looks like a big black rattan steamer trunk is at the west end outside of Wynola Antiques. Their motto is to take what you need and leave what you can. Please leave only non-perishable foods at these two locations. Yes, Julian has a thrift shop. It is on Hollow Glenn Road across the street from Nickel Ber. They are open on weekends and I have gotten some great deals there! They have a large variety of items including lots and lots of sizes of clothing. I’ve been thinking about all of the people who have to stay inside in the winter time. Living in the countryside doesn’t give me a good perspective of what it is like to live in an apartment during a lockdown. I live on three acres with three generations of us, two homes, cats, chickens and wild life. I never feel locked down and I never feel lonely. If you get lonely or if you know a person who might be lonely; then make a telephone call. Start by saying you have been thinking of that person. I don’t do this as often as I think I want to. I know that life gets in the way. However, sometimes it’s good to just sit down with a hot cup of cocoa, tea or coffee and dial a telephone number. Snuggle up with an afghan and enjoy your friendship knowing that you have done something good for yourself and perhaps something good for another person too. Friendships are hard to find, harder to keep and worth putting some effort in to. These are my thoughts.

Keeping The Lights On For Afterschool Programs (StatePoint) Afterschool programs help students succeed in school and in life and provide invaluable support to communities. As we’ve seen this year, these programs play an especially important role when students, families, and communities are struggling. Programs across the country have stepped up in the pandemic, providing virtual educational activities, delivering meals and enrichment kits, helping families bridge the digital divide, connecting people to social services, and continuing in-person care for the children of essential workers and first responders. Unfortunately, a large majority of afterschool programs that were open in the fall of 2020 report they are straining to meet the needs of the students and families they have long supported. National surveys of parents and afterschool providers conducted by Edge Research for the Afterschool Alliance, a nonprofit awareness and advocacy group, find that programs and parents are challenged by virtual learning; program budgets are inadequate to address new safety protocols and students’ emerging needs; and students from low-income families are now less likely than others to have access to afterschool programs. To underscore the value of afterschool programs and the need to invest in them, the Afterschool Alliance recently organized the 21st annual “Lights On Afterschool,” the only national rally for afterschool. It took place throughout the fall and included local, state, and national events – many of them virtual this year – showcasing the skills students hone and talents they develop at their afterschool programs. From virtual STEM fairs and art contests to car caravans and letter-writing to isolated nursing home residents, events focused on academics, civic engagement, STEM education, social and emotional wellbeing, bullying prevention, mental and physical health, and more. “The strength and resilience afterschool programs demonstrated in 2020 was remarkable. Despite scarce resources, programs found ways to help students through what has been, for many families, the hardest of times,” says Jodi Grant, executive director of the Afterschool Alliance. “However,

How COVID-19 Has Changed The Way We Do Business Forever

(StatePoint) The COVID-19 pandemic has fundamentally changed how business gets done. And when it comes to midsized and small businesses, the importance of investing in new technology, facilitating remote work and maintaining a tech-savvy workforce has never been so clear, according to a new survey. Conducted by The Harris Poll for CIT Group Inc., a leading national bank focused on empowering businesses and personal savers, the survey of leaders of U.S. middle-market and small businesses is designed to illuminate the intersection of technology and talent. Compared to last year’s survey, significantly more leaders today believe continuous technological investment is a business requirement. “The resiliency and flexibility that technology can deliver businesses has been convincingly proven by COVID-19,” says David Harnisch, president of CIT’s Commercial Finance division. “Business leaders have taken that lesson to heart and are focused on making technology a fundamental part of their ‘tomorrow thinking’.” Most executives surveyed wish that they’d invested even more in technology over the past 12 months. In fact, more than three in four middle market executives believe investments in technology would have helped their company fare better during the pandemic. For small businesses, roughly half felt similarly. However, there’s little question how important technology will be going forward, with the majority of respondents saying it’s crucial to future success. Seemingly determined not to repeat the mistake of under-investing, the majority plan to invest as much or more in their business over the next 12 months as compared to the past year. Only 15% of small businesses say they may invest less this coming year, likely due to financial constraints resulting from the pandemic. “Small businesses don’t always have the financial resources that larger enterprises often enjoy,” says Ken Martin, managing director of CIT’s Small Business Solutions group. “When investments are imperative, borrowing or leasing may be the right solution to acquiring the technology needed to remain competitive.” When it comes to these upgrades, investments that make it easier for employees to work remotely are a clear priority. Over the next 12 months, 71% of middle market executives and 31% of small business leaders who plan to invest will spend on technology that facilitates remote work. “It’s not just a matter of convenience. Businesses that empower employees to work remotely have a clear competitive advantage,” says Denise Menelly, CIT's executive vice president and head of Technology and Operations. This is a trend that’s likely here to stay. Approximately a quarter of small businesses operating remotely expect -- and want -- these changes to remain permanent after COVID-19 subsides, and about 40% of middle market executives expect the same, with some seeing it as a means to grow the company. However, this digital transformation puts a premium on a tech-savvy workforce able to support customers and collaborate with colleagues remotely. While many believe their current workforce has the skills to keep up, businesses are also substantially more likely than last year to say companies need to focus on hiring tech-savvy talent. While the COVID-19 pandemic has created a great deal of uncertainty for small and midsized businesses, it has in many ways clarified what’s needed to remain successful in an evolving world.

there aren’t nearly enough afterschool programs to meet the need, especially now, with so many schools functioning virtually and with school schedules changing without warning. We need to invest much more in afterschool and summer learning programs.” To learn more about the Afterschool Alliance and “Lights

On Afterschool,” which will next be held on October 28, 2021, visit “In normal times, afterschool programs help students succeed by keeping them safe, inspiring them to learn, and by supporting working parents,” says Grant. “During a pandemic, the support they provide is even more essential.”

Folk Art Paintings

Artists sometimes only make one kind of art, perhaps keeping to painting, sculpture or jewelry. But many try all kinds of art before they find the one that is best. Self-taught Peter Hunt (18961967) started painting thrift shop furniture with peasant designs in 1929. His colorful pieces sold quickly in Cape Cod and became so fashionable that they were sold in the furniture departments of Macys, Gimbels and other wellknown department stores. Old boxes, school desks, strollers, toys, buckets, trays, fabrics and more were decorated. Hunt was handsome, charming and clever, and he sold his

His painting is compared to early Pennsylvania German or Norwegian Rosemaling. His painted designs were signed with "Anno Domini," the last two

numbers of the year, and his cursive signature. Sometimes he added French phrases to the decorations. But the fad only lasted till the 1960s, and he died penniless. Peter Hunt's art is being collected again. This Hunt dollhouse, painted inside and out, sold at a recent Eldred auction for $240. A large piece of furniture could bring over $1,000. *** Q: I haven't been able to identify the maker of my silver water pitcher. The mark includes the initials "L.B.S.

Nickel silver doesn't contain any silver but is an alloy made of about 20% nickel, 60% copper and 20% zinc. In electroplating, an electric current is used to deposit a thin layer of silver onto the base metal. The process came into commercial use about 1840.

continued from page 1 struggling to make rent. Some 2 million Californians are at risk of being evicted on Feb. 1 after falling behind on rent during the pandemic. Newsom said he is working with legislative leaders to try to extend a ban on evictions and approve some forms of assistance before the next fiscal year begins on July 1. “We are working overtime to see if we can advance some early decisions and make some pointed movement so we are not waiting months and months for the traditional legislative cycle,” he said. “We have to take some early action on all of these fronts.” Newsom also said figuring out how to expand broadband service will be a priority in 2021, as the pandemic has thrust many Californians into remote work and school that necessitates strong connection to the internet. The federal stimulus package includes $7 billion for improving broadband nationwide. Newsom said he and state lawmakers are coming up with proposals to expand broadband service in California through the budget and legislation. Cities in California did not respond as optimistically as the governor did to being left out of the federal stimulus package. “Revenue shortfalls resulting from the pandemic have decimated city budgets, threatening jobs, services, and local economies, yet Congress has ignored local leaders and economists who for months have been calling for federal aid to support cities’ frontline efforts and help jumpstart economic recovery,” Carolyn Coleman, executive director of the League of California Cities said in a statement. “Providing funding to local governments is essential.”

5 Tips for Winter Travelers (Family Features) Because of the pandemic, fewer Americans are taking to the skies, but a significant number likely plan to hit the roads to visit friends and family during the winter months. Whether a few towns over or a couple states away, many drivers will travel interstates, which are major logistics corridors often dominated by commercial trucks. According to the United States Census Bureau, there are approximately 3.5 million people working as truck drivers in the U.S. From keeping grocery store shelves stocked to delivering those next-day packages, professional truck drivers impact lives with the freight they move and serve an important role in keeping the economy running. Professional truck drivers are also experts when it comes to planning travel. From mapping out a route to maintaining their vehicles and even practicing a healthy diet, many truck drivers are road trip experts.

Caron Comas is a professional truck driver for Variant, a subsidiary of U.S. Xpress, one of the nation's largest trucking companies. Highly trained, she's driven trucks for 17 years and her expert insight can aid the average automobile driver planning to hit the roads this winter.

"It's important that the average driver give trucks plenty of space on the road," Comas said. "People can forget we're generally handling 75 feet of tractor and trailer, which can weigh 80,000 pounds. We can't stop on a dime like automobiles, so increase distance when

merging in front of trucks and avoid slamming on your brakes." Comas suggests following these tips on the road and before you travel: * Don't follow trucks too closely. If you can't see a tractor trailer's mirrors, the driver can't see you. * Schedule vehicle maintenance before your trip. Have your oil changed and ask the experts to check your tire pressure and other important fluids to help assure you're driving safely and efficiently. * Carefully plan your route. If driving through big cities, consider fluctuations in rush hour traffic. For more remote locations where there may not be regular food or gas, plan for when you'll need to stop along the route. * Stay hydrated and nourished. Before setting out, eat a healthy meal and drink plenty of water. For the drive, pack healthy, non-

perishable snacks like granola, fruit or nuts along with bottled water. For longer trips with kids, consider a small cooler for sandwiches, string cheese or yogurt. * Be overly prepared. Keep a few blankets, a flashlight, a firstaid kit and an extra pair of shoes in your car. If you experience car trouble, make sure you can stay

warm until help arrives. Keep in mind the global pandemic. Check each state's quarantine requirements that you'll be traveling to or through, wear a mask when in public and follow the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's guidelines when traveling. For more travel tips, visit

California Commentary

The Fate Of California Hangs On Georgia

by Jon Coupal

So why should Californians care about a runoff election for two U.S. Senate seats in Georgia occurring Jan. 5? The answer is simple. The outcome of that election will have major implications for national politics and that includes profound impacts on California. Unlike Las Vegas, what happens in Georgia will not stay in Georgia. It is rare that two Senate seats are up for grabs in a single state simultaneously. And because the outcome will determine control of the U.S. Senate, it has focused the political attention of the entire nation on the Peach State. In one of the races, Republican Kelly Loeffler will be facing Democrat Raphael Warnock to retain the seat to which she was appointed by Gov. Brian Kemp. In the other, Republican incumbent David Perdue will be up against Jon Ossoff, a wealthy Democrat who failed to win a seat in the House of Representatives in a 2017 special election after spending millions of dollars in the most expensive congressional race in American history. Currently, the United States Senate is under Republican control with a 50-48 advantage. If Loeffler and Perdue win, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell will retain the gavel with a 5248 majority. If just one wins, the Republicans will still control assuming no defections on major issues. However, if the two Democrats win, the Senate will be at a 50-50 tie with the newly elected Vice President Kamala Harris casting the deciding votes. If the latter occurs, Democrats would be in complete control of Washington, ruling both chambers of Congress and the White House. For California, that would mean some major changes that progressives would likely celebrate. First, Democrats could very well bail out those states that have shown no spending discipline. California, New York and Illinois are high on that list because their pension costs are out of control. Progressives could also force through major labor legislation that limits opportunities for freelance work and grants new powers to unions that could effectively undercut “right to work” laws in many states. Public sector unions would see their political wishes granted. For advocates of school

choice, full Democratic party control in D.C. would mean programs such as vouchers, tax credits and charter schools would be curtailed or eliminated entirely. These are programs that are effective in educating schoolaged children, which is why they are so popular with parents, especially those in economically struggling neighborhoods. But school choice is a threat to dominant union control, so don’t expect any sympathy from Washington if Georgia is lost to progressives. For transportation, expect that roads and highways will play second fiddle to mass transit and boondoggles like high-speed rail. In the years since Republicans have controlled at least one house of Congress, they have effectively shut down any further funding of California’s failed highspeed rail project. If the Senate flips to Democrat control, expect a massive infusion of federal bailout money to the “train to nowhere.” Democrats claim that conservative predictions of a hard left turn are overstated, pointing to the filibuster as a Senate rule that gives the minority party substantial influence over most Congressional actions. But we’ve heard that tune before, and many progressive politicians and activists are advocating doing away with the filibuster entirely. If the ultra-progressives in Congress, who appear to be setting the agenda for the Democrats, gain control, they would not only pass bad laws like raising taxes through the roof, but they would also alter our institutions in a way that would ensure the weakening of Republicans as a political force in the future. So what are the chances that Republicans win the runoffs in Georgia? They have been aided by the fact that Democrats selected two farleft candidates who are hardly the moderate Democrats more likely to be electable in that state. But Californians should brace themselves in the event Democrats gain full control. The failed policies that we have seen in California will be amplified at the national level. *** Jon Coupal is the president of the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association (HJTA).

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 Dear EarthTalk: Given the economic slowdown around the world due to the coronavirus in 2020, was there a positive impact on climate change? -- M. Stiles, Meriden, CT The coronavirus pandemic has certainly led to a decrease in industrial activity and resulting greenhouse gas emissions during its reign over the planet in 2020. A recent study by German researchers calculated that global carbon dioxide emissions fell by about eight percent over the past year. While this is no doubt a good result from an otherwise bad situation, the researchers warn it represents nothing but a small drop in the bucket compared to what we still need to accomplish—even bigger annual emissions drops every year for decades to come—to avert cataclysmic climate change. According to study co-author Ralf Sussmann, we would need to achieve zero emissions around the world by 2055 to limit global warming at 1.5ºC. The declining rate of greenhouse gas emissions during the global pandemic would not only need to be upheld, it would need to be amplified to achieve zero emissions. Sussmann and other study authors stated that to achieve these reductions “political measures have to be taken to directly initiate fundamental technological changes in the energy and transport sectors.” Despite the drop in emissions over this past year, 2020 will likely go down in history as the year things started to really accelerate with regard to climate change’s effects. Recent increases in both the frequency and intensity of extreme weather events are consequences of global climate change. “Global warming can contribute to the intensity of heat waves… Increasing temperatures mean a longer wildfire season,” reports the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine. “Global warming also increases water vapor in the atmosphere, which can lead to more frequent heavy rain and snowstorms.” This means stronger hurricanes and flooding. In 2020, extreme weather events plagued people around the world amid the pandemic. In the U.S. alone, Americans witnessed orange skies clouded with smoke and a number of powerful hurricanes coming from the Atlantic. Globally, there have been record high average temperatures, double the activity of a normal hurricane season, the hottest temperature ever reliably recorded in human history (54ºC), the most costly damages from flooding to date in China, record low Arctic sea ice, and the strongest tropical cyclone to hit land that has ever been recorded (Super Typhoon Goni). These abnormally extreme weather events are all indicators of the accelerating effects of climate change on our planet. Even though climate change continues to worsen, in small ways all over the world nature has taken this economic slowdown as a chance to breathe. For example, the murky waters of Venice’s canals became clearer than they had been in decades—and sea life even returned to the city’s urban waterways. While global warming has not stopped because of the global pandemic, we have learned that Mother Nature responds positively to our improved behavior (even when not intended), which gives environmental advocates hope to keep on working. It’s now up to every one of us to make significant changes in our own orbits—perhaps by keeping up our slower and more stationary existences even after we have a grip on coronavirus— if we hope to mitigate and reverse the effects of climate change.

(Family Features) Introducing a new puppy to your household can bring many rewards. However, getting the hang of things can take some time, especially for first-time pet owners. In fact, it takes the average pet owner almost four months to get into the flow with a new four-legged family member, according to a survey by Royal Canin. Eight in 10 respondents said the first year of pet ownership is the most important, but that doesn't mean it's easy. The survey found 64% believe the first year is also the most difficult and deciding how to train a new pet was cited as the most important decision pet parents have to make. "Bringing a puppy home is a hugely rewarding experience for pet owners, but it's also a time of huge challenges and steep learning curves," said Dr. Jill Cline, pet nutritionist and site director of Royal Canin's Pet Health and Nutrition Center. "In addition to helping your puppy adjust to its new home, you can support your puppy's health now and always with a nutritionally complete diet tailored to its specific needs." Make welcoming a new puppy a rewarding experience for the whole family with these tips. Arriving Home Your puppy may be feeling stressed by new sights, sounds, smells and the separation from its mother. Manage the noise and activity to avoid adding to this stress. As soon as you get home, take your puppy to your yard or outside area so it can go to the bathroom. Use positive verbal reinforcement when the job is done. Once indoors, block off a safe area and let your puppy sniff and explore on its own time. Getting acquainted with a new place takes time and lots of exploring. Some puppies can be overwhelmed by too much human contact, so allow your puppy to come to you. Getting Settled Puppies like to know what to expect. Plan your routine for feeding, potty trips, exercise and grooming so you can get started on day one. continued on page 11

If you know what routine your puppy had before adoption, it's best to continue for consistency until your puppy is settled. Any sudden dietary changes can cause stress or digestive problems, so for the first week or two, give your puppy the same food as its previous owner, following the feeding recommendations on the package. Nutrition tailored to specific developmental needs can help fragile, young puppies grow into strong, healthy dogs. It's important to select a highquality food based on age and expected adult size. Your puppy's eating spot should be away from where you and any other pets eat. Allow your puppy to eat in peace to prevent it from feeling nervous or protective. Puppies tire easily and need

introduce your puppy to new experiences like sounds, car travel, walks and other animals. It's also important to begin behavior training right away to develop good habits from the start. If you're interested in getting a new puppy, before making a decision on which breed best

as much as 18-20 hours of sleep per day for healthy development. A crate near where you sleep lets your puppy see and smell you but keeps it from wandering off. Put something that carries your scent in your puppy's bed along with a blanket to snuggle into. Remember to schedule regular veterinarian visits and gradually

is easier to incorporate in most drink or sauce recipes. When selecting soybeanbased products like soy milk or tofu, look for a Certified NonGMO label. This means the product was produced without genetic engineering and its ingredients are not derived from genetically modified organisms. The label also means that a product has undergone stringent provisions for testing, traceability and segregation. Only Non-GMO Project Verified products can use the verification mark. The label also includes the project’s URL, where consumers can look up the product standard to better understand what it means. Non-GMO soy milk and tofu add many health benefits to smoothie recipes. Tofu contains considerable amounts of protein, omega-3 fats, calcium, selenium and other minerals and antioxidants that all play a role in good health. Tofu is bland in taste, but easily absorbs and enhances the flavors of whatever you combine it with, and adds creaminess to your smoothie. Wheat germ offers another way to add a punch of protein to your breakfast smoothie. Wheat germ is the embryo or kernel of the wheat. It’s a rich source of protein, fiber, unsaturated fat, vitamins E, B1, B2, B5 and B6, phosphorus, zinc, thiamine and magnesium. Wheat germ has natural antioxidants and helps prevent heart disease, cancer and aging. It also protects the muscles, blood, lungs and eyes, and helps to prevent blood clots. Wheat germ helps to strengthen your body’s immune system and increases your ability to cope with stress. It’s also a reliable source of natural fiber, which is essential to maintaining regular bowel functions and preventing constipation. Try these nutritious, vitaminpacked smoothie recipes to ensure you start your new year and a new day the healthy way!

OnLine Dating

to help reflect your individuality? At 33 Thousand Dates, for example, they take a personalized, proactive approach and handle the heavy lifting so that clients can have all the fun. 2. Refresh your photos. Time to cull from the thousands of photos saved on your phone for five to 10 terrific shots. If they’re more than a year old or low-resolution, consider scheduling a photoshoot with a friend or a professional. Pose in natural light, ideally outdoors, and show off your smile. Avoid selfies and sunglasses, and include at least one full body shot that conveys your interests, whether you’re hiking, doing a tree pose, or walking along the shore. For men, shirts on unless it’s a great surf shot or you’re spiking a volleyball on the beach. Lastly, most photos should be solo – pets are warm and welcoming, but limit the shots including friends or family. 3. Be proactive. Start with only one or two dating platforms. You can add more later, but you don’t want to be overwhelmed by all the “likes” you’ll receive! Once live, don’t wait for messages to bombard you. Instead, use the platform’s filters so you see the type of people you’re looking for – don’t be shy about knowing what you want! “After coaching thousands of people and playing a part in 4,200 marriages, I’ve found that those with the highest level of dating success proactively work the system in person and online,” says McGinty. 4. Arrange video chats. Set up short virtual dates to determine whether you’re willing to meet in person. Keep conversations to 10 minutes – this is enough time to get a feel for personality, looks and mannerisms. Ask important questions early to ensure your values align, and remember, chemistry only comes in person! 5. Have fun. Now it’s time for the good stuff! Arrange drinks, coffee or brunch al fresco – these dates are less pressure, more relaxed and don’t drag on. If you’re ready to leave, say you have errands to run or evening plans. A coach can help with this part, too – 33 Thousand Dates offers expert advice on how to communicate and follow up on dates. Keep in mind, you’re seeing if you like the person enough to go on a second date, not marry them! And if it doesn’t go well, those millions of other singles are waiting to meet you.
