Inaguration Day Upon Us
by Michael Hart with Matt Viser<The Washington Post>
After having a staff member at the Junior High test positive fro Covid-19 on Friday, The Julian Elementary School District has instituted their plan to move to online schooling for the next two weeks for all students Pre-K through Eighth grades. As an added precaution all Junior High students are encouraged to get tested at their family physician or through one of the public testing sites. As of Sunday the plan was to return to in person learning on February 1.

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.”
On April 30, 1789, George Washington took the oath of office as the first president of the United States. He delivered his first inaugural address to a joint session of Congress, assembled in Federal Hall in the nation's new capital, New York City. With one exception, his first inaugural address did not contain specific policy recommendations. Washington urged Congress to add a bill of rights to the Constitution that would express “a reverence for the characteristic rights of freemen and a regard for the public harmony…” Although not required by the Constitution, every president since Washington has followed his example and delivered an inaugural address. The Constitution of the United States had established March 4 as Inauguration Day in order to allow enough time after Election Day for officials to gather election returns and for newly-elected candidates to travel to the capital. With modern advances in communication and transportation, the lengthy transition period proved unnecessary and legislators pressed for change. The date was moved to January 20 with the passage of the Twentieth Amendment in 1933. On January 20, 1937, Franklin D. Roosevelt became the first U.S. president sworn into office in January. It was his second of four inaugurations; the first had been held fours years earlier on March 4, 1933. Inaugural celebrations have run the gamut from Andrew Jackson’s raucous White House reception in 1829, to FDR’s somber wartime affair in 1945, but a basic pattern of activities has been established over the years. Around noon, the president is sworn in at the Capitol by the Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court. After taking the brief, 35-word oath of office, the new chief executive delivers an inaugural address, followed by a parade through the city, and an evening of gala festivities. The day he takes office, Biden is planning to return the United States to the Paris climate accords and repeal the ban on U.S. entry for citizens of some majority-Muslim countries. He will sign an order extending nationwide restrictions on evictions and foreclosures and implement a mask mandate on
federal property. Those moves will launch a 10-day governing sprint that will include executive actions to help schools reopen, expand coronavirus testing and establish clearer public health standards. “President-elect Biden will take action — not just to reverse the gravest damages of the Trump administration — but also to start moving our country forward,” incoming White House chief of staff Ron Klain wrote in a memo released Saturday. In his first days in office, Biden also intends to send to Congress several pieces of legislation including a sweeping immigration bill. In remarks last week, he began outlining legislation that he views as most urgent — a $1.9 trillion plan aimed at stabilizing the economy. Any president’s opening agenda provides a window into his top priorities and offers the first clues as to which agenda items will be prioritized. But Biden’s unusually sweeping list reflects not only the multiple challenges he faces, but also illustrates his desire to quickly emerge from the shadow of his predecessor, closing a dark chapter in American history marked by false claims of election fraud, an insurrection at the U.S. Capitol and a second impeachment. But Biden will face severe challenges to his attempts to turn the page: An inauguration conducted before military guards under threat from violent extremists. A West Wing largely empty because of health concerns caused by the coronavirus pandemic. And a Republican Party that largely refuses to acknowledge that Biden won the election fairly and therefore rejects his legitimacy. Historians struggle to find parallels to what Biden is confronting: a public health crisis that has triggered an economic crisis and collided with a social crisis. Historian Doris Kearns Goodwin compared it to a combination of what Franklin D. Roosevelt faced during the Great Depression and Abraham Lincoln confronted during the Civil War. “It’s huge what he’s facing,” said Goodwin, who has written extensively about Roosevelt and Lincoln. “History has shown when you have crises like this, it’s an opportunity for leaders to
mobilize resources of the federal government. ... All the presidents we remember, they dealt with a crisis. When you’re given that chance, the question is: Are you fitted for that moment? The six-term senator and two-term vice president, who has attended nearly a dozen inaugurations, will for the first time deliver the Inauguration Address. He has been working on his Inauguration Day speech off and on for the past several weeks with speechwriter Vinay Reddy, aiming for a message of unity in a fractured era. “People are really anxious,” said Rep. James E. Clyburn (D-S.C.), a close Biden ally. “This marks a turning point. We can see it, we can feel it. It’s a very significant break. And we will hear it in his speech. … People want to believe in their country, to feel this democracy is worth saving.” While Biden has promoted his presidency as a return to bipartisan dealmaking, Clyburn and others have urged him not to hesitate to make liberal use of his executive powers and to consider seeking the elimination of the Senate filibuster. “He wants to govern in a bipartisan way,” Clyburn said. “But I’ve said to him that he cannot allow his programs to get hijacked by people who have some other agenda. I advised Barack Obama again and again to use executive authority, that these people were not going to work with them.” Clyburn said that in conversations with Biden, he has stressed that Harry S. Truman used the executive order to racially desegregate the military and Abraham Lincoln to begin dismantling slavery. “You’ve got to lay out your vision and invite people to join you in the effort,” Clyburn said. “But if they don’t join you — whatever authority you’ve got, use it.” Clyburn and others also emphasized the challenges Biden will face within his party, which holds only the thinnest of majorities in the House and Senate. “We’ve got a caucus that’s blue dogs, yellow dogs, moderates, conservatives, liberals. We’ve got them all,” Clyburn said. “He may have a harder job keeping us united than getting bipartisanship going.” [What you need to know
about Joe Biden’s presidential inauguration] Biden’s team is expected to begin work Wednesday, reporting to a White House complex that many tearfully left four years earlier. His incoming press secretary, Jen Psaki, will hold a briefing that day — one that, four years ago, was marked by Sean Spicer’s falsely claiming that Trump had had the largestever inauguration audience on the Mall. But many of Biden’s aides will start their tenure working from home, as they have been for months, and few visitors are expected at the White House. Biden’s transition team has been prodigious on the hiring front, appointed 206 White House officials, a record and more than double the number of appointments President Obama had made at this point in 2009, according to the Center for Presidential Transition. He also has already announced 44 nominees that need Senate confirmation, which surpasses Obama, who held the previous record at 42 nominations announced before the inauguration. But though early nominations are typically swiftly confirmed, Biden may not have any Cabinet officials confirmed on his first day, the first time this would have happened since 1989. Two of Trump’s Cabinet picks were confirmed on Inauguration Day in 2017, and President Obama had six confirmed at the start of his first term. “I am hopeful that the Senate will move quickly, consistent with history,” said David Marchick, the director of the nonpartisan Center for Presidential Transition. “It matters more than ever today during a crisis.” The nation’s second Roman Catholic president is expected to attend Mass on the morning of his inauguration, along with a national prayer service the day after. In his first weeks, Biden’s primary focus will be moving his initial stimulus and legislation through Congress. But he’s also preparing to craft a second proposal aimed at rebuilding the economy. “If Republicans in Congress want to show they genuinely want to move forward in this moment, quickly confirming his nominees continued on page 8

Handyman Services The Senate must do its job, and let Biden do his. My favorite four letter word has always been “both.” When you choose between two things you want, you only get half. There are times when half is not enough, and this is one of those times. Want to save democracy? Swallow hard and do the right thing now. Trump should have been convicted by the Senate and removed from office last year, after his first impeachment. Republican senators knew Trump had abused the powers of his office when he tried to get the president of Ukraine to investigate Biden in exchange for American military aid, but they didn’t have the cojones to man up and convict him. That’s why the face of democracy is now down head first in a pile of insurrectionist crap! Republican senators were responsible for last week’s insurrection. It was their fault for enabling Trump to discredit our democratic process, undermine the integrity of our elections system, turn democracy on its head, and make America the laughing stock of the communist world. When Trump was impeached for a second time, their values and judgements were also impeached. Despite what others have said to the contrary, sometimes it is too late to do the right thing. They didn’t do the right thing last year and it looks like senators may not do it this time either. But this time, it’s not only Republicans that don’t have the cojones to do the right thing, it’s also Democrats! If they don’t have the cojones to lay down the law when Lady Liberty is crying out for justice, then maybe they shouldn’t be in the Senate either! Democrats want to give Biden 100 days to get his cabinet confirmed and get 100 million Americans vaccinated, before trying Trump. Republicans also want to wait 100 days to bring Trump to trial, but for a different reason. They want time to unite the country. Senate Republicans have not cared about uniting the country for 10 years, preferring to enable Trump to create a deep racial divide in America. It’s a bit hypocritical for them to be calling for unity now. Timing is everything in war, comedy, and politics, and it’s the right time to bring Trump to justice. If any senators believe that inciting an insurrection with the intent of overthrowing the government of the United States is not an impeachable offense, they should say so now. Aquí y ahora. No cuando les convenga, and sure as hell not in 100 days. Justice delayed is justice denied. Dr Juan Andrade, Jr.

National Guard Sleeping In The Capitol An Echo Of Civil War
by Allen G. Breed<apnews.com>
To most Americans, the sight of armed National Guard troops sleeping in the Capitol Rotunda this past week was shocking and disturbing. To me, it was an echo of the far-distant past. “Don’t despond,” Maj. Bowman Bigelow Breed wrote to his anxious wife back home in Massachusetts as his comrades lounged around him on the polished marble floors in the grand hall that was now their bivouac. “You must know by this time that we are here in safety. We may have to fight but my own opinion is that the overwhelming force concentrated here will prevent an attack.” Insurrection was in the air, and these citizen soldiers had been called up to secure the seat of government. The date was April 27, 1861. The writer was surgeon of the 8th Massachusetts Volunteer Militia. My great-grandfather. Having transcribed my great-grandparents’ Civil War correspondence, I knew that Bowman’s unit had spent the first days of the war bivouacked in what he called “the Hall of the Dome.” Harper’s Weekly published an illustration of the 8th’s men, their weapons leaned against the marble walls or stacked, bayonets intertwined, like fodder shocks in a farmer’s field. “I wish you could look in on us this morning and see how comfortably we are settled here,” he wrote in that first missive, scribbled on letterhead for the “Thirty Sixth Congress House of representatives.” The regiment called itself “the Minutemen,” after those New England patriots who grabbed their muskets and rushed to face the Redcoats at Lexington and Concord in April 1775. My greatgrandmother, Hannah Pope
photo:MilitaryTimes. Breed, was descended from one of those men. And, so, when President Abraham Lincoln called for 75,000 volunteers to put down the inusrrection of the Southern states, there was no question but that Bowman -- privileged son of a wealthy industrialist -- would go. The 8th headed south just four days after rebels opened fire on Fort Sumter. Passing through hostile territory in slaveholding Maryland, Bowman was unable to fulfill his promise to write every day. “How I have suffered when I knew that all communication was cut off and that you were torn hour after hour by the terrible suspense of hope deferred,” he apologized to Hannah, who was left alone to care for their infant son, Isaiah. “Don’t despond my darling. God will preserve us all and in time of war you must have faith in the handy old proverb that no news is good news.” While the enlisted men slept in the rotunda, the 10 officers shared a small room just off the main hall.
"A little room opening from that serves for my hospital, very small and very inconvenient,” Bowman wrote. “I have not been able to open my medical stores yet and can use only what I can carry about in my bag. I have been on the run Ever since I came here, trying to arrange matters, but red tape rules here and I have been referred from one to another till I am tired out.” The Capitol was undergoing a massive expansion. The regimental chaplain held services in the old Senate chamber. “The men all stood in a circle with the officers on one side and the chaplain in the centre,” he wrote. “He made a very appropriate prayer and then we all sang, `Praise God from whom all blessings flow.’” The day after their arrival, Bowman and his comrades were treated to a visit from Secretary of State William H. Seward and the president himself. “We were all introduced and had quite a chat with them,” he wrote. “They were both in good spirits. Lincoln said that if the city had been as unprotected then
as it was a week before it would have been taken.” The regiment was drawn up, Bowman said, “and the Pres made them a little speach.” It was early in the Republican’s first term, and most did not yet know what to make of this “dirty Hoosier,” as Hannah referred to the Kentucky-born, Indiana-bred Lincoln. “All that has Ever been said of Lincolns awkwardness is mild compared with the reality,” Bowman wrote. “Some of his gestures would make the fortune of a circus clown.” Nonetheless, the new president inspired confidence in the citizen soldiers. “The men gave three cheers for Lincoln, three for Seward and three rouses for the Union,” Bowman wrote. When the 8th was stationed there, the higher, more ornate Capitol dome was not yet complete. As the war dragged on, critics suggested that the costly work be halted. Lincoln felt otherwise. “If people see the Capitol going on,” he said, “it is a sign we intend the Union shall go on.” Bowman would serve throughout the entire war. As painful as their separation would be, he told Hannah in that first letter from Washington, he hoped that the struggle was “the means God in his goodness has provided to remove the dark cloud under which we have seemed to be resting for so long.” “I have faith to believe that all our steps are ordered for the best,” he wrote. “Let our prayers mingle now as heretofore and all the blessing of a holy calm will descend, to strengthen us.” Allen G. Breed, a native of Lynn, Massachusetts, is based in Raleigh, North Carolina.
high floor in warmer weather, and on a low floor in chilly weather. The reason for this is to prevent having air naturally gravitate towards protected spaces as a result of seasonal temperature differences. Earmarking space is a good start. To further optimize the space for preventing the spread of infection, you can address these key elements as applicable to your home, understanding there is variation in home construction, HVAC systems, and climate: • Windows: Keep windows closed as much as possible throughout the home. In an isolation space, use a windowinstallable product to provide exhaust ventilation. In a protected space, supply filtered, outdoor air. • Doors: For an isolation or protected space, always keep the door closed. For added safety, install a draft stopper under the door or hang plastic sheets in front of the room’s entrance. • Vents: If you have a forcedair heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system, seal all vents in the isolated or protected space. By doing so, you’ll prevent its air from entering other rooms. However, if the room you select has the home’s only HVAC return vent, it may be wisest to choose another room. • Portable heating/cooling: If you’re able to seal off all vents, you may require a portable room heater or air conditioner so that thermal conditions can remain comfortable.
• Private bathroom: If possible, designate a private bathroom for use only by the occupant of the separate room. For a protected space, only run the bathroom exhaust fan when the facilities are in use. For an isolated space, run the bathroom exhaust fan continuously at high speed. • Air purification: A system such as the Filtrete Air Purifier with HEPA filtration can help capture unwanted air particles, including viruses and bacteria, in a protected space.

And while the rollout of preventive vaccines has begun, the manufacture and delivery of sufficient doses to inoculate all Americans will take months. Because the disease can be unpredictable, everyone should take precautions to mitigate its spread, especially when it makes an appearance at home. While the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends physical distancing, mask-wearing and other health-related measures, the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) also recommends additional guidance when a household member is known to be infected, to help reduce risk to other household members.

(NAPSI)—The COVID-19 pandemic and resulting nationwide K-12 school closures have created a social and economic impact that has paralyzed many communities. The lack of a proven technological solutions to help counter the impact of COVID in schools has compounded the crisis—but that can be fixed. Recently, two important developments have created an opportunity for a new national strategy to address the economic and health challenges facing schools, while equipping every classroom with healthy air filtration technology. The Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021 (CAA), recently signed into law, includes $54.3 billion to help K-12 public schools address the COVID-19 impact, with the goal of improving health and safety measures within these schools. Stand-alone air purification units for every classroom are the most efficient, scalable and cost-effective solution to reopen K-12 public schools safely, would require less than five percent of this relief funding, and can be deployed rapidly. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recognizes that COVID-19 is transmitted via airborne particles, meaning filtration is critical. “Minimizing airborne viral load in the indoor school environment can help maintain and support the safe reopening of schools, benefiting not just the students and staff but, even more, their families and communities,” said Paul Scialla, founder and CEO of Delos and founder of the International WELL Building Institute. Based on many years of research, including ultra-fine particle filtration of indoor air and collaborations with organizations
How just 5% of the $54.3 billion in relief funding for school districts can bring 6 million advanced air purification units to every K-12 public school classroom in the country. such as the Mayo Clinic and Cleveland Clinic, Delos has become the world leader in healthy buildings. Delos (www. delos.com) has deployed over 100,000 air filtration units into some of the country’s largest public school systems, including New York City, Chicago, MiamiDade and Baltimore. As many schools’ HVAC systems are not designed to filter air particles as small as SARS-CoV-2, these portable units provide a scalable and cost-effective solution to help create safer environments across the nations’ six million K-12 public school classrooms—without requiring HVAC upgrades. “When schools are closed, children lose access to critical support, food and safety, with the most vulnerable children paying the heaviest price. Committing to these upgrades for schools will cost a small fraction of what is allocated, and the positive impact will be transformational and permanent,” concluded Scialla. “We are here and ready to help school districts looking to make change in their communities with the funding they receive from CAA.”

Tips To Make This The Year You Quit Smoking For Good (StatePoint) Is “quitting smoking” on the top of your list of goals for the year? Was it last year too? Here are some insights from those in the know into kicking this habit to the curb for good. “They say old habits are hard to break, and when it comes to my dad’s addictive smoking habits, I couldn’t agree more,” says Linh Nguyen, the Houston style, fitness and mom blogger behind A Beautiful RAWR. “He knows smoking is detrimental to his health, but the thought of not having it be part of his daily routine has been a challenging, intimidating, and in some ways, scary idea for him to grasp.” Nguyen’s family has resolved to help her father make this the year he quits smoking for good. For those 18 and older, consider these tips and insights she is sharing into the process. • Identify your motivations: Quitting a smoking habit can be very difficult, but knowing why you want to quit can help you stick with it when things get tough. “I think the biggest motivator for my dad to quit this year is our growing family. His grandkids are his world and I know he wants to be around to watch them grow up. To do that, we’re all making better choices for a healthier, longer life,” says Nguyen. • Get Help: Quitting is often associated with challenging physical symptoms. However, products that deliver controlled, therapeutic doses of nicotine can relieve cravings and help with difficult physical withdrawal symptoms. “One of the biggest ways I’m supporting my dad is stocking him up on effective,
pharmacist-recommended smoking cessation products from Walgreens, which are much more affordable compared to similar products,” says Nguyen. Before getting started, anticipate which products might work best for your needs. While patches are a great choice for many people who like to “set it and forget it,” those who prefer to keep their mouth busy might prefer using a product like Walgreens Nicotine Gum. Available in 2 mg or 4 mg strengths, each piece lasts about 30 minutes and you can chew up to 20 pieces per day. Similarly, Walgreens Lozenges also come in 2 mg and 4 mg strengths and are a good choice for people who may avoid gum due to TMJ problems. • Build a plan: Quitting is highly personal. For a greater chance of success, look for resources that help you build a personalized plan. For example, the Walgreens team offers free live support and healthcare clinics in your area, as well as expert advice, treatment and tools available at walgreens. com. “If they can help my dad quit after 50-plus years, they can definitely help you or a loved one,” says Nguyen. For additional support and information, visit cancer.org or call the American Cancer Society 24 hours a day, seven days a week at 1-800-227-2345. When you quit smoking, you can lower your risk for a number of health problems including lung disease, lung cancer and heart disease. If you are attempting to go smoke-free, be sure you have all the support and tools you need.
Fighting Flu And Staying Healthy All Year With Medicaid and CHIP (StatePoint) Each year, millions of Americans get sick from “seasonal influenza” (“the flu”). According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than 38 million people got sick with the flu during the 2019-2020 flu season. The flu is more dangerous than the common cold and children are at higher risk for developing serious complications. More than 12 million children under the age of 18 were diagnosed with flu last year, and of those children diagnosed, more than 52,000 were hospitalized. However, there are preventive steps parents can take to protect their children continued on page 10

My Thoughts by Michele Harvey
Our Community Coming Together
by Kiki Skagen Munshi
Our Love/Hate Relationship SDG&E, the power company that we all….never mind. The thing is that, in addition to turning off power right and left, SDG&E tries to make the process as irritating as possible. Last week they turned off our power all day to replace a pole. There is no problem with this, of course, and we were reminded of it when the guys doing the work came in the day before to survey the territory. SDG&Awful HAD sent a letter, sometime in December. Along with several other letters about power outages that were later cancelled. But, hey, they had also notified us that a power outage was imminent. By both a phone call AND e-mail so what’s the problem? The problem was that neither call nor e-mail had said WHEN the outage would take place. We get these calls and letters all the time. “This is SDG&E with an important message….press any key…” Then, pressing the key is another message: “There may be a scheduled power outage in your neighborhood…blah, blah, blah and go ahead and omit any details like when or how long because who really cares and, besides, “You have been sent a letter…” That’s right. We’ve been sent a LOT of form letters with probably scheduled or possibly scheduled or maybe some differently scheduled outages, some of which happen and some don’t. Exactly which letter are you referring to? More to the point, why don’t you simply take the trouble and expense to….oh, the expense. We forgot. Profits. It might cut in to profits to make a new recording each time you might have a power outage or schedule one. Perish the profit-thought! We wouldn’t want the stockholders of SDG&E to miss a few more pennies on their quarterly payments simply for our convenience. So now when we get the recorded message, “This is SDG&E calling…” we simply hang up. We know that it won’t have any important information in it or if it does that the information is conditional and variable and whatever. Since SDG&E is giving out generators right and left these days, we also know they plan to turn off power even more often. The generators they are giving out consume about two gallons of propane an hour which is a significant cost to the new owners on top of an electricity bill, not to mention exhaust emissions fouling the air (yes, propane only emits 40% of gas generator emissions but that 40% still goes into our formerly clean air) not to mention the noise. However, lawsuits from fires caused by unmaintained and defective power lines…. All that said, last week SDG&E put in two new poles up on Chicken Hill (don’t ask, long and old story, that name) with a helicopter and an amazing demonstration of great flying. They do some things right.
Put Your Resolutions In Easy Reach
A few weeks ago, a local house burned down, a very sad event. I heard that the family lost everything including their chickens and one of their cats. The good news is that I soon heard that the community soon began offering help by way of household goods, food, and furniture. Not so long ago, a vehicle accident involved three vehicles including two motorcycles on highway 78 between Santa Ysabel and Ramona. I heard that accident involved fatalities. I read that people witnessing the accident and others nearby immediately helped by giving CPR and by covering accident victims with blankets. This is the kind of community that we live in. I hope I can always say this. We don’t stop and wonder whether people in need are of the same religion, skin color or political party as we are. When help is needed; we help. I think that the main issue in our area is to know that you can reach out when you are in need. We don’t have to hear of tragedy to help one another. The Friends of the Julian Library held a book sale at the Julian Women’s Club which was very successful and now they have set book carts around Julian and Wynola. You can buy books for a small donation from the carts. You can donate books that are in pristine condition by contacting Jonna Waite. I talk with her on Facebook. The Op Shop, Julian Elementary School’s Pathways program’s thrift store has lots of good bargains. They are across Hollow Glenn Road from Nickel Beer and the money they make goes to our local students. Robin Boland, the Executive Director of the Julian Chamber of Commerce came up with a winning idea to help our local economy. For the month of December, anyone buying from participating local merchants could turn in $25.00 worth of receipts in exchange for a chance to win a $500.00 shopping spree at local merchant’s businesses! $16,000.00 worth of receipts were turned in and two $500.00 shopping sprees were awarded. I think that is a fantastic way to show you care about your community! Robin comes up with great ideas and in her position as Executive Director of the Julian Chamber of Commerce, she will take our town well ahead of what and where it’s been. She has big ideas for our small town and surrounding community. Have you seen the Julian video? It’s very well done. Here in the Julian and Wynola area free food can be found for people in need. I’ve written about these opportunities numerous times. They are also places where people who have some spare nonperishable food or spices can leave them in the locations knowing their donations will go to keeping tummies warm. I really like living in a community where people help each other. Sometimes fundraisers are held to raise money for scholarships or to continue the work of a non-profit. Sometimes winter hats and gloves are gathered for children who don’t have them. Calling myself a citizen of Julian makes me stand proud. These are my thoughts. *** It strikes me that presidential campaigns can often bring out the worst as well as the best in us. — John Ortberg ***
4 Ways To Uplift Small Businesses In Your Community
(Family Features) Setting New Year’s resolutions is one thing but keeping them is another. Look for ways to make it easy to stick with your plan this year so you can celebrate victories when you reach your goals. The first step in achieving your resolutions is setting yourself up for success. Arm yourself with the resources you need to eliminate obstacles. That might mean finding the right gear, like exercise continued on page 8
(StatePoint) With nearly half of all Americans employed by a small business, these establishments need our support more than ever. According to the latest Wells Fargo/Gallup Small Business Index, 46 percent of business owners surveyed have seen a drop in revenue over the past 12 months, with some entrepreneurs seeing even more severe impact. “Small businesses are at the heart of our communities and the key to millions of jobs,” says Steve Troutner, head of Small Business, Wells Fargo. “Keeping spending dollars in local communities is an impactful way to rally around small business owners.” Wells Fargo is sharing four ways to uplift small businesses near you: 1. Shop local. While one-stop shopping on leading e-commerce sites can be tempting, the simple act of purchasing something from your favorite local retailer can go a long way in keeping business afloat and money in your community. Returning or exchanging gifts? Ask for store credit instead of cash. It helps keep money with a small business and makes their cash flow more stable. Many shops have safety measures in place, such as limiting occupancy or offering contactless pick-up. 2. Eat local. Support your neighbors by dining at locallyowned establishments. Getting takeout or having food delivered? Order directly from the restaurant rather than through third-party sites that take a cut. When it comes to food shopping, opt for neighborhood grocers, which often carry produce from small family-owned farms and other locally-sourced goods. Many offer the same curbside pickup and delivery options as major chains. 3. Uplift diverse-owned businesses. Keep in mind that minority- and women-owned businesses have been hard hit by COVID-19. Many are counting on your patronage to survive. To help entrepreneurs stay open and support local jobs, Wells Fargo is deploying approximately $400 million from its Open for Business Fund to nonprofits serving small businesses. The initiative focuses on increasing access to training and flexible capital that businesses can use for rent, utilities, payroll and other business needs.

From The Supervisor’s Desk
Notes from Supervisor Joel Anderson
Supervisor Joel Anderson‘s Swearing-in Statement January 4, 2021
Introduced by Former State Senator Mark Wyland who after 14 years in the California Legislature retired in 2014.
Thank You Mark! Senator Mark Wyland and I worked very closely as colleagues in the State Legislature and have become close friends. I can say without any hesitation that I would not be standing here today without the support and efforts of Senator Mark Wyland. I also want to recognize Supervisor Dianne Jacob, who worked tirelessly these past 28 years to represent the Second District. I would like to thank my wife, Kate, who has wholeheartedly loved and supported me throughout my career and our 33 years of marriage. A political life is hard on families. I appreciate the support of my three children, Mary, Maura and Michael, who grew up with their Dad involved in elected public service. To all who voted for me, and the thousands of supporters and volunteers, I am very grateful for your support and hard work on my behalf. I am truly honored. To all the residents of District 2, regardless of party, or whether you voted for me or not, my job and intent is to represent all of you! These are tough and strange times. Traditionally, a swearing in of new supervisors would take place as a formal ceremony in the County board chambers with the other Board of Supervisors, my family and friends and the public. But because of the scourge of the COVID pandemic, I took my oath of office today from my kitchen in Alpine. It is disappointing, and often disruptive, that except for essential personnel like nurses and public safety staff, most members of the County team must work remotely, as are many of you. However, those of us who are extremely fortunate to HAVE jobs and health benefits for ourselves and our families must consider ourselves blessed, as many of our neighbors and friends have lost their jobs. Many business owners have been forced to lay off their employees and even close their doors – some permanently. As terrible as the pandemic is, and I especially keep the loved ones who lost family members in my prayers, let us not forget the tens of thousands of our fellow citizens whose livelihoods have been lost or threatened. In addition, several hundred thousand school children have been forced into “remote learning,” which has reduced achievement and burdened parents and teachers. To get through the crisis together, we must ensure that proper safety protocols are in place and encourage all citizens to heed them. However, our decisions should be made by MEDICAL science, not POLITICAL science. There are far too many inconsistencies confusing and angering the public. Why can Big Box stores like Walmart and Target remain open, with few restrictions, but mom-and-pop stores are constantly having the rules changed? One day the Governor and the County say playgrounds should be closed, and the next day they are allowed to open. Did the medical facts change overnight? Outdoor dining is allowed, then closed, then opened, then closed, and the Governor’s own medical advisor admits there is NO evidence that outdoor dining is a risk - they simply want people to stay home. The public just wants - and needs - the truth. This brings me to the key theme of my candidacy: Transparency. Government institutions have a legal and ethical obligation to not only release information to the public, but to be straightforward when doing so. I have never found government to be corrupt but have at times found it to be truthful in the moment. As your Supervisor, I will tell you the truth, and reveal the Good, the Bad and the Ugly about County government. In the days ahead, you will see me and one of my Board colleagues working together to ensure more openness and allowing for more public input into County decisions. So what are my specific goals and objectives for District 2? District 2 covers over 2,000 square miles! It includes the cities of El Cajon, Santee, Lemon Grove, La Mesa and Poway and parts of the City of San Diego. 40% of the district is comprised of unincorporated areas like Alpine, Lakeside, Rancho San Diego, and Ramona. I intend to seek partnerships with your local elected officials, chambers of commerce, nonprofits and faith-based organizations. Over 275,000 citizens live in the unincorporated part of the district. My family and I have lived in Alpine for over 30 years. Any concerns you have, from potholes to sheriffs’ response times, or if you need help navigating County government for licenses or permits, my office will help you get the answers you need. East County is Open for Businesses My first priority is to bring jobs and prosperity to all of East County. This will be done through creative and innovative leveraging of County assets and programs to work with and create incentives for businesses to survive and thrive. This means maintaining and expanding local manufacturing, siting solar farms, and ensuring farmers have the flexibility to successfully grow and sell their crops. I will be coming forward with a number of initiatives that can be implemented, without being mired in years of bureaucracy, to revitalize our communities. Secure Attainable Housing The way things look now, it’s questionable whether our three children will be able to afford a home in San Diego County. We need to make sure the American dream can be achieved by the generations that follow us. In order to move ahead, we must ensure state environmental regulations are implemented coherently so the local rules are clear and fair. Home builders, the public and interest groups must be able to see a road map that everyone can easily understand. And approved permits must be implemented quickly and efficiently. We will focus like a laser on having sufficient housing stock, rental homes and apartments and TRULY attainable housing. Whenever possible, it will be built around new business centers and transportation networks. But this must work in the real-world, not just on planner’s blueprints. Homelessness Sadly, after the expenditure of hundreds of millions of dollars these past decades, homelessness has worsened. This includes for thousands of school children and their families, veterans, people with substance abuse issues, the mentally ill and many who, for a variety of reasons, have fallen on hard times. And we would be short-sighted to ignore the likelihood of significant increases in homelessness as a result of the impacts of COVID. I will be coming forward in the very near future with a more affordable process for lifting people out of homelessness. I will be reaching out to government, nonprofits and faith-based organizations to participate in launching a pilot program, hopefully by Spring 2021. There are, of course, many other issues impacting the residents of District 2 and the County as a whole. I look forward to working positively with all my new colleagues to tackle these challenges and improve the quality of life for our citizens. I truly believe that with leadership and cooperation, and even the willingness to, at times stumble – but stand up again, we can solve any problem we face. Once again, I feel privileged to be given the opportunity to serve you.

Label-UnderGlass Bottle Most glass bottles identified the contents inside with embossed letters on the container or a paper label. But a special group, usually apothecary bottles or special gifts, were made with "labels under glass." The medical bottles usually had a label with a black name written in a fancy type style, gold leaf trim, plus a solid glass cover for the label. It was made to fit into a shaped indent on the side of the bottle, making a smooth bottle with a protected label.

continued from page 1 and passing a bold package is the quickest way to do that,” said Sen. Christopher A. Coons (D-Del.), a close Biden ally. During the campaign, Biden made a wide range of promises for action on “Day One” of his administration — and it is unclear whether he will get to all of it immediately. “Day One, if I win, I’m going to be on the phone with our NATO allies saying, ‘We’re back,’ ” he told KPNX in Phoenix over the summer. “We’re back, and you can count on us again.” He pledged to send a bill to Congress repealing liability protections for gun manufacturers on his first day and vowed to eliminate tax cuts passed under Trump in 2017. “Right now, the president gives advantage to companies that go overseas and invest overseas by reducing the taxes they have to pay on foreign profits,” Biden said during a July interview with WNEP in Scranton, Pa. “I’d double that tax and do that on Day One.” Among the other things Biden pledged to accomplish on his first day was to restore federal workers’ right to unionize and to issue new sweeping ethics standards that would apply to his administration. He also said he would reinstate federal guidance, issued by Obama and revoked by Trump, ensuring that transgender students can have access to sports, restrooms and locker rooms in accordance with their gender identity. “He is looking forward to delivering on the promises he made when running for president,” Psaki said Friday when asked about Biden’s Day One agenda items. “You can anticipate he will use the power that every president before him has used on executive action.” But there is a long history of presidents failing, when they have their actual first day in office as president, to follow through on theoretical Day One promises they made while campaigning.

Tax Hikes Are Back On The Agenda In Sacramento
by Jon Coupal and Scott Kaufman
With 1 million signatures in and several potential challengers, the recall drive against Gov. Gavin Newsom may be causing him to reconsider some of his more progressive policy positions. In his recently unveiled $4.5-billion stimulus program, he offered — get this — tax relief, not tax hikes. The so-called “Equitable Recovery for California Businesses and Jobs” plan includes $575 million for small business grants, $777.5 million in tax credits to businesses that hire or retain employees, some salestax exemptions and $600 checks to low-income Californians. Of course, it also contains the usual slop like $1.5 billion in subsidies to buy electric vehicles but, nonetheless, we take victories where we can get them in Taxifornia. Newsom’s September pledge to oppose new taxes was fairly explicit: “In a global, mobile economy, now is not the time for the kind of state tax increases on income we saw proposed at the end of this legislative session and I will not sign such proposals into law.” The irony is not lost on us that the governor said this while also endorsing Prop. 15, the failed $12 billion tax hike — and latest attempt at gutting Proposition 13 — on the November ballot. But his remarks did provide a bit of assurance to the state’s job creators. On the other hand, there is no such hesitancy to push tax increases in the California Legislature. Proposing a “tax increase du jour” is in the DNA of Democratic legislators. Here are just a few of the bills causing anxiety among those Californians who want to keep at least some of the money they earn. Assembly Bill 65 by Assemblyman Evan Low would create a California Universal Basic Income. It is like AB2712 presented last legislative session, which proposed to raise the necessary money either through a value-added tax, raising corporate taxes or implementing a tax on services. Assembly Bill 71 by Assembly members Luz Rivas and David
Chiu creates a $2.4 billion homeless fund. The devil’s in the details, however, and the bill suggests the money could come from increases in income tax rates on individuals making over $1 million, increasing corporate income taxes, and collecting taxes on increases in the value of assets through “marking to market unrealized capital gains and the repeal of stepped-up in basis of inherited assets.” Finally, Assembly Constitutional Amendment No. 1 is back again this year. ACA1, by Assemblywoman Cecilia AguiarCurry, would repeal the twothirds vote threshold needed to pass local sales and parcel taxes for infrastructure and affordable housing projects. This direct attack on Prop. 13 is the camel’s nose under the tent and part of a long term strategy to strip away all the two-thirds protections on tax increases. Ronald Reagan once quipped that the “government’s view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.” California businesses have stopped moving, well except for moving out-of-state. Newsom at least seems to realize this. But is it too little too late? While the state is projecting a $15.5 billion surplus come July, Californians are struggling, employers are moving away, and small businesses are closing. Undercutting Newsom’s newfound restraint, the Legislature seems to be falling back to their usual solution to problems — more taxes. This constant call for more taxes inflicts damage even if the proposals are never enacted. Newsom can promise all he wants, but taxpayers and the business community won’t ignore the message they are receiving loud and clear from the Capitol. And so the exodus continues. *** Jon Coupal is the president of the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association (HJTA) and Scott Kaufman is the legislative director of the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association.

American hunters pay almost $800 million a year towards conservation programs through the purchase of state hunting licenses and fees. Credit: Tim Donovan for FWC, FlickrCC. Dear EarthTalk: Are hunters really the biggest conservationists in America? – Joe W., Raleigh, NC Hunters do play a large part in conservation efforts across the U.S. through their taxes, licenses and donations. In fact, the National Wildlife Refuge System itself was founded by a hunter: President Theodore Roosevelt. That being said, the mere act of hunting alone is not conservation. While one can conserve an animal’s pelt, meat, or the memory of that animal, shooting and killing an animal, of course, does not mean that it has been conserved. However, hunters take action outside of hunting in order to maintain the species’ health, environments and numbers in which they hunt. In this regard, not all hunters are conservationists, but many become conservationists through hunting. Most of the U.S. government’s funding for conservation comes from hunters. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service raises money for wetland habitat protection through its program called “Duck Stamps.” Federal Duck Stamps are required to be purchased by all waterfowl hunters, but they can also be bought by anyone who would like to contribute to conservation. Since their creation in 1934, Duck Stamps have helped conserve nearly six million acres of habitat. They also serve as a free pass into any national wildlife refuge that charges an entry fee. Additionally, according to the Rocket Mountain Elk Foundation (RMEF), hunters pay $796 million a year towards conservation programs through their state licenses and fees. RMEF is largely made up of hunters, and along with other similar groups, they estimate that they have added around $440 million a year to conservation efforts. Another federal tax on guns, ammo, bows and arrows generates $371 million a year towards conservation. A survey conducted by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service showed that the percentage of Americans who hunt has halved over the past 50 years, and that the decline continues to accelerate. Because hunters provide much of the funding to government conservation programs, the decreasing popularity of the pastime is taking a toll on efforts by state and federal agencies to implement wildlife habitat restoration plans and related activities for the benefit of wildlife. There are some who see this decline in hunting as a positive. People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), for example, published a detailed article citing the main reasons why they believe sport hunting is cruel and unnecessary. They point out that a substantial percentage of animals hunted are shot but not killed causing an unnecessary amount of pain and suffering. Additionally, they argue that while natural predators maintain the balance of an ecosystem by killing the sickest and weakest individuals, sport hunters often try to aim for large, healthy animals for better bragging rights. It is undeniable that hunters contribute to conservation efforts, but the sport and act of hunting itself has proven to be a controversial subject for many.

continued from page 1 and family from the flu. Flu viruses change each year, so the best way to keep your kids and teens healthy is to make sure they get their yearly flu shot. The flu is a serious illness, but getting the flu shot helps lower the number of hospital visits and deaths. Remember, even healthy kids can get sick from the flu and spread it to family and others. This year, it’s more important than ever for children 6 months and older, as well as adults, to get a seasonal flu shot. The CDC recommends getting a flu shot early in the season, but getting it at any time during the flu season can help. Medicaid offers free or lowcost health insurance for eligible kids up to age 21; the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) covers eligible kids up to age 19. Medicaid and CHIP covers vaccinations for children, like the flu shot, but also other services like preventive care, well-child visits, dental and vision care, and mental and behavioral health care. Eligibility varies by state and depends on your household size and income. On average, a family of four earning up to $50,000 a year or more may qualify for Medicaid or CHIP.
Enrollment is open all year, but you have to renew your health coverage yearly. Catch Up on Missed Care This is also a good time to catch up on other care and necessary preventive services your child may have missed because of COVID-19, like routine well-child visits and vaccinations. Routine well-child visits help health care providers ensure children are growing and developing normally, including meeting important developmental milestones and provide age-appropriate counseling and immunizations to keep children healthy. With Medicaid and CHIP coverage, parents can schedule preventive visits for their children. Your
provider will tell you how to be safe and how to get important care to protect your kids’ health now and for the future. Preventive care can keep you, your family and community healthy. Get covered with Medicaid and CHIP and catch up on care to prevent disease. Don’t forget to schedule your child’s yearly flu shot and protect your child’s health. To learn more about Medicaid and CHIP, visit InsureKidsNow. gov or call 1-877-KIDS-NOW (1-877-543-7669) to speak with an enrollment specialist and get covered today.

vitamins protect cells -- including those of your immune system -- from damage by toxins in the environment. Choose citrus fruits/juices, melons, mangoes, kiwi, peppers, tomatoes, berries, broccoli, cabbage, sweet/white potatoes, winter squash, leafy greens, almonds, hazelnuts, peanut butter, sunflower seeds, safflower oil, whole grains and fortified cereals several times a day. -- Eat probiotic foods to help build up the good bacteria in the intestines. These bacteria play a role in helping fend off illnesses. Any fermented food is rich in this type of good bacteria, so choose yogurt, sauerkraut, tofu, brinetreated pickles and aged cheese at least daily. -- Add a zinc-rich food to your daily diet to increase production of white blood cells in your body. Research shows this can reduce the number of days you’ll suffer from a cold. Foods rich in zinc include yogurt, lean red meat, poultry and fish, almonds, pumpkin seeds and fortified cereals.

Volume 36 - Issue 25
ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Aspects call for care in preparing material for submission.Although you might find it bothersome to go over what you've done, the fact is, rechecking could be worth your time and effort. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) The week is favorable for Bovines who welcome change. New career opportunities wait to be checked out. You also might want to get started on that home makeover you've been considering. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You might have to be extra careful to protect that surprise you have planned, thanks to a certain snoopy someone who wants to know more about your plans than you're willing to share. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Family ties are strong this week, although an old and stillunresolved problem might create some unpleasant moments. If so, look to straighten the situation out once and for all. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Although the Lion might see it as an act of loyalty and courage to hold on to an increasingly shaky position, it might be wiser to make changes now to prevent a possible meltdown later. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Your gift for adding new people to your circle of friends works overtime this week, thanks largely to contacts you made during the holidays. A surprise awaits you at the week's end. LIBRA (September 23 to October
22) Don't hide your talents. It's a good time to show what you can do to impress people who can do a lot for you. A dispute with a family member might still need some smoothing over. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Be open with your colleagues about your plan to bring a workplace matter out into the open. You'll want their support, and they'll want to know how you'll pull it off. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Trying to patch up an unraveling relationship is often easier said than done. But it helps to discuss and work out any problems that arise along the way. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) While your creative aspect remains high this week, you might want to call on your practical side to help work out the why and wherefore of an upcoming decision. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Dealing with someone's disappointment can be difficult for Aquarians, who always try to avoid giving pain. But a full explanation and a show of sympathy can work wonders. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Getting a job-related matter past some major obstacles should be easier this week. A personal situation might take a surprising but not necessarily unwelcome turn by the week's end. BORN THIS WEEK: You can be both a dreamer and a doer. You consider helping others to be an important part of your life.

quality time on yourself. Mindful Monday Be mindful about your health and regularly monitor your blood pressure or blood sugar if needed. Keep an eye on your weight to make sure it stays within or moves toward a healthy range. Tasty Tuesday Choose how you want to approach eating healthier. Start small by pepping your meals with a fresh herb or spice as a salt substitute. Get adventurous and prepare a simple, new, hearthealthy recipe. Or go big by trying a different way of eating, such as the Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH) eating plan, which is scientifically proven to lower blood pressure. DASH is flexible and balanced, and it includes plenty of fruits and vegetables, fish, poultry, lean meats, beans, nuts, whole grains and low-fat dairy products. Wellness Wednesday Don't waffle on your wellness. Move more, eat a fruit or vegetable you've never tried, make a plan to quit smoking or vaping or learn the signs of a heart attack or stroke. You could be having a heart attack if you have chest and upper body pain or discomfort, shortness of breath, cold sweats, nausea or lightheadedness. You might be having a stroke if you experience numbness in the face, arm or leg; confusion; trouble talking or seeing; dizziness; or a severe headache. Treat Yourself Thursday Treats can be healthy. Try making a dessert with fresh fruit and yogurt. Then stretch your
imagination beyond food. Host a family dance party, take a few minutes to sit and meditate, go for a long walk or watch a funny show. Whatever you do, find a way to spend some quality time on yourself. Follow Friday Follow inspiring people and pages on social media, or text a friend to help you stick to your self-care goals. Remember to take care of your mental health, too. Two of the main hurdles to self-care are depression and a lack of confidence, according to a study published in the "Journal of the American Heart Association." If your mental health is taking a toll, take action to show your heart some love. Reach out to family and friends for support, or talk to a qualified mental health provider. Selfie Saturday Inspire others to take care of their hearts. Talk about your self-care routine with loved ones or share a selfie on social media. Having social support and personal networks can make it easier to get regular physical activity, eat nutritious foods, reach a healthy weight and quit smoking.
