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.”
Regeneration One Year After The Borrego Palm Canyon Grove Fire After the devastating fire in Borrego Palm Canyon's First Grove one year ago on January 18, the native Californian fan palms are recovering and making a promising comeback. The initial images emerging after the fire were disheartening. Many of us, including Park staff on the Natural Resources Team, feared the worst immediately after the event. Yet, nature is resilient, and after just a few weeks, new palm fronds emerged on the native fan palms, Washingtonia filifera. Now, a year later, it appears that all of them may have survived which will be more rigorously assessed by the Park's biologists and environmental scientists in the coming months.
The County is opening another COVID-19 Vaccination Super Station tomorrow at Cal State University San Marcos. The County opened the region’s third Vaccination Super Station Sunday at the California State University San Marcos Sports Center.

Board of Supervisors Chair Nathan Fletcher joined Supervisor Jim Desmond, California State University San Marcos President Dr. Ellen Neufeldt, and City of San Marcos Mayor Rebecca Jones for the opening of the site. The new pedestrian site will be vaccinating people, with appointments, from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Sunday through Thursday Free parking will be available in Parking Structure 1 on levels 2 and 3 and disabled parking in Lot L next to the Sports Center.
The Julian Town Square, One Step Closer to Reality
by Kim Simas
For over three years, a local group has been working to beautify the empty lot in the center of Julian. The Julian Community Heritage Foundation (JCHF), a recently registered nonprofit organization, seeks to transform the space into the Julian Town Square. Plans for the space include drought resistant landscaping, seating areas, native plants and a stage or amphitheater. Through the support of former Supervisor Dianne Jacob, JCHF was awarded funds through the Neighborhood Reinvest Program. JCHF also received funding through the Park Land Dedication Ordinance from the County of San Diego Parks and Recreation. With these two large funding sources and numerous donations, the JCHF has obtained the amount needed to purchase the lot. The group is currently in the final negotiations with the property owner for the purchase. The lot, which was previously home to a Chevron gas station, holds a remarkable history. It was once the location of a community store and a Sheriff’s station however several leaks from the Chevron holding tanks polluted the site and rendered it unusable. For nearly 30 years, the lot at the corner of Washington and Main Streets has sat undeveloped and served only as an empty, fenced in space at the center of town. As of 2018, the lot was classified
as a brownfield and cleared for development by the San Diego County. JCHF has sought to transform the lot into a centerpiece for the community of Julian. The group, made up of community volunteers, has envisioned a place for the community to hold seasonal events, for artisans and musicians to showcase their talents, performances and more. With the help of many donors, JCHF is looking forward to the reward of their efforts over the years. Purchasing the lot is the first step in bringing the Julian Town Square to life. Once purchased, JCHF plans to step up their fundraising campaign to begin the development phase of the project. Many community members have already offered
their assistance to support the project by donating their time and skills to making the community space a reality. More help is definitely needed though. The Julian Community Heritage Foundation has set up several donation tiers that will allow donors to leave their mark on the Julian Town Square for generations to come. A donor wall will prominently display names of those who have supported the project. Donors also have the option of having their name on a bench, tree plaque or even the functioning water tower which will irrigate the landscape. To learn more about the project, to donate and the donation levels, visit juliantownsquare.com.
The Borrego Palm Canyon trail had been closed for 10 months to
assist with initial recovery and is now open as a modified loop trail
that leads to an overlook but not inside the grove itself.

As Senior Environmental Scientist Danny McCamish shares, “The soil under the palms was completely burnt and is now extremely vulnerable to erosion from the creek bed and heavy flooding events and also susceptible to establishment of non-native undergrowth. We are actively working on removing non-native plants and stabilizing the soil to aid in the generation of a carbon layer that will help the palms’ root system with continued recovery and robust health. We thank the general public for following our guidelines to assist with the stabilization and DEHSILBATSE regeneration efforts 0781to preserve this iconic palm grove for all future generations."
Another weekend of craziness thanks to Mother Nature. This weeks snow say an invasion of flat landers all week long, as anticipated - the weekend was the worst as the Snow melted. Both Saturday and Sunday traffic backed up all the way to Wynola on the 78. The 79 was impassable for a time thanks to the CHP and CalTrans shutting it down from the 8. Sunrise Highway to Mt. Laguna remained closed throughout the day. Saturday also saw the Sheriffs chasing flat landers off private property all around town. Sunday was no better with traffic backed up and up to 90 minutes to get to town from the West. The tow companies must have made a good chunk of change over the weekend considering the number of cars off the roads.

The week-long event encourages professionals to thank the mentors and colleagues in their networks who’ve been essential to their success.

Julian Library to re-open for in person service Feb 2, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, 10-4, with one hour break mid day. Door side service continues Mondays and Fridays, 10-4. Snow brings great beauty to the Julian area but also total misery in the form of traffic jams. This last storm the CHP was forced to close the highway from Santa Ysabel to Julian to all but residents because of the miles long backup; for most of us, snow means “Forget getting mail, going to the library, and/or doing anything else in town.” Would it be possible for the Chamber and the County to collaborate on developing and issuing a “snow pass” or something of the sort to bring numbers down to the point where visiting was enjoyable for tourists and life wasn’t totally upended for residents? Such a pass, monitored at Santa Ysabel and somewhere on 79 toward Cuyamaca, might bear a modest fee ($2-3) to defray costs. A certain number of free passes would be available on application to BnB’s, inns and residents. Visitors could sign up for time slots to come in; more than half an hour off the time on the pass would render it invalid. There would be no limit to how long people could stay in the “pass” area. Or variations on this theme. The major idea is to bring traffic during snow days to reasonable levels, make the experience more enjoyable for visitors, and make life bearable for residents.

As public health information programs are developed, there has been increasing scrutiny of the veracity of the content, in the Fake News era. Persuading the public to act requires a professional communications plan that is resilient to change and includes agile responses to new information. Like the game of telephone, that we played as children, in which a message is whispered from one person to the next, all around a circle, until it comes back sounding like a vastly different story, so too, even with the best of intentions,can information lead to a chain reaction of misinformation. Some bad actors start off whispering a story that is untrue, which makes matters worse and the public less trusting of the news, even if it is from a reliable source. Trust has to be earned for meaningful change to take place. The best way to earn trust is to tell the truth, consistently, citing credible sources, such as the government, doctors, scientists, or other reputable experts whose word should be beyond reproach. Even the best sources can make mistakes, which should be corrected as soon as possible, as new information becomes available and situations evolve . As we watch the leaders of our society trying to set a good example by exhibiting the desired behavior, which is helpful, it would be even better if we could see case studies of people who have actually benefited from following the recommended course of action. It takes time to build trust, which becomes easier when people start to see that a plan is working. An easy way to earn trust is to have the helpful information repeated again and again in a wide variety of prestigious news media, which people turn to regularly as their primary source of information about new developments and strategies for protecting their health and safety. Traditional media that is hyperlocal, followed by millions regularly, is a highly trusted resource for health experts to disseminate their helpful advice. Journalists are willing to share information, which could help save lives, if it is from medical experts that are reputable and trustworthy. Statistics should be credible, including the source of the information, such as a survey, a study, a trade association, the government, or the opinion of a doctor. Some like to use celebrity spokespeople, but if they are paid, that must be disclosed, and they will only be credible if they have had a real life experience that relates to the news to be shared. The public needs to know what the benefit is of the message that is being conveyed and how they can believe that the information is accurate. If the information is helpful, and shown to be true, people will follow advice like a bee to honey.

How to Teach Children About Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
(Family Features) Children develop their identities right alongside their abilities to crawl, walk, talk and recognize letters. There's also a common misconception that children are "colorblind." However, studies have found children can show signs of racial bias at an early age, with psychologists from Northwestern University finding children as young as 4 may be picking up on cues of intolerance from adults around them. Children may not understand prejudice or racial bias, but from their earliest days, they absorb and mimic attitudes that are held by the adults in their lives. "For children, differences are a way of learning about themselves and others, a way of building their sense of self and a place in their family and community," said Dr. Elanna Yalow, KinderCare Education's chief academic officer. "Children will naturally look to their parents and caregivers for explanations about the diversity they see in their world and what those differences can or should mean. That's why it's so important to help even the youngest children learn how to embrace diversity in a way that's respectful and celebrates different cultures, backgrounds and experiences." Understanding and addressing issues of diversity, equity and inclusion can be challenging, which is why some parents may shy away from having these conversations with their children. Yalow offers these tips to help parents lay the foundation for honest and developmentally appropriate discussions.
Start by acknowledging differences. To ignore differences among people is to ignore a part of the person. When children ask, "Why does...?" questions, rather than shy away or tell them, "We don't ask those questions," embrace the moment and answer in simple, direct language. For example, explaining that melanin creates different skin tones or people may use wheelchairs because their legs work differently, and they need help moving around. By answering their questions, children can learn differences aren't bad or embarrassing they're what make each person unique and special. Reflect the diversity of the world within your own home. Books are an easy way to help children learn about diversity because stories are natural conversation starters. Look for books with diverse main characters who have different races, ethnicities, backgrounds and abilities, and reflect a
3 Pandemic Travel Trends That May Stick Around
number of family structures. As you read together, talk about the differences and similarities between the characters and your children using simple, clear language. It's important to ensure your children see themselves in the toys, books and media around them. Children feel welcome and important when their identity and their families' identities are
represented in their world. Build empathy. Go beyond the common refrain, "put yourself in someone else's shoes," and ask your children why it is important to understand other people's perspectives. Help your children think of times they learned something about someone else and how that knowledge helped them be better friends or family members. Empathy can help children comprehend the lasting, harmful impact inequality and exclusion can have and show them why it's important for them to understand, respect and appreciate differences. "Learning about and celebrating diversity, equity and inclusion are lifelong commitments," Yalow said. "Children have the benefit of approaching these topics with a fresh perspective and a strong sense of what's fair and unfair skills that will help them build a better future for everyone."

Why Getting Tech Savvy Doesn’t Have to be Hard (StatePoint) More than 12 million people are currently employed in tech-related occupations in the U.S., either as information technology (IT) professionals or employees of technology companies. Yet employer demand for tech workers is still strong in many markets and industries, including technology, financial services, manufacturing, retail, healthcare, government and education. Unfortunately, misperceptions about tech occupations persist. People assume that in such jobs, you’re relegated to working alone writing software code or that you need to be a math genius or have an advanced academic degree to even get your foot in the door. These misperceptions can discourage qualified candidates from exploring career options in the IT field.
(Family Features) COVID-19 has challenged families in different ways, and many had to cancel or reschedule trips during the pandemic due to travel restrictions, which meant missing out on quality time with loved ones and the mental health and self-care benefits of going on vacation. Although 61% of families had a trip canceled due to the pandemic in 2020, travel is still top of mind as 82% of families already have travel plans in mind for 2021, according to the 2021 Vrbo Trend Report. The report, which includes vacation rental marketplace data as well as survey data from family travelers, also revealed some travel habits that arose during the pandemic are likely to remain popular this year. "Let's face it, the pandemic makes it tough to predict what travel will look like in 2021," said Melanie Fish, Vrbo's travel expert. "That's why we combined search and demand trends with a first-of-its-kind traveler survey of U.S. families. The combination gives us the most accurate picture possible of the plans families are making." Consider these pandemic-era trends as you make your vacation plans moving forward: Staying in the Driver's Seat With travel restrictions and social distancing guidelines in place throughout much of 2020, many families opted to avoid flying and visiting crowded places by instead jumping in the car to hit the open road. This trend is likely to continue in 2021 with 59% of families saying they are more likely to drive instead of fly on their next trip. A change of scenery can be refreshing and motivating after staring at the same four walls in your home, so consider taking a road trip and exploring a new destination, even if it's just down the road from home. Mixing Work and Play Many people were forced to adapt to working from home or facilitating e-learning for their children due to COVID-19. While turning homes into makeshift offices or classrooms wasn't an easy task for many families, the schedule flexibility provided by the remote setup allowed for the rise of the "flexcation" - mixing vacation time with virtual work and school. In fact, 1 in 3 families surveyed said they were able to travel because they were working from home, and 52% of those who took a flexcation during the pandemic found the experience refreshing with 67% saying they would do it again. Another benefit of flexcations is experiencing amenities you may not have access to at home. Consider some of Vrbo's most soughtafter amenities and vacation spots when planning your next getaway: * Splash in the sun in Cape Coral, Florida where 92% of vacation rentals have pools. * Cook over an open fire in Sevierville, Tennessee, where barbecue grills are included at 87% of vacation homes. * Cozy up by the fire with a book and some hot chocolate in Steamboat Springs, Colorado where fireplaces are an amenity offered in 87% of vacation rentals. Seeking Wide Open Spaces Many travelers gravitate toward vacationing in peaceful and picturesque destinations, and the open sky, fresh air and scenic views may be even more appealing amid the pandemic. According to the report, 61% of U.S. families said they are more likely to visit an outdoorsy destination than an urban one and 54% are more likely to head to a national park than an amusement park. Find more ideas for planning your next vacation - or flexcation along with the full Trend Report at vrbo.com.

“Today’s IT professional plays a leading role in virtually every business and industry, identifying innovation and technologies that can determine the future of an organization,” says John McGlinchey, executive vice president for global certification with CompTIA, a nonprofit association for the IT industry. “Companies are eager to hire people who communicate effectively, are comfortable working as part of a team and are creative in identifying how to use technology to make a business more efficient and profitable.” In fact, 62% of executives surveyed for CompTIA’s “Workforce and Learning Trends 2020” report ranked soft skills such as relationship building, persuasion, integrity and confidence with equal importance to hard technical skills when it came to hiring for their tech workforce. For anyone thinking about a career in tech, the best first step is to learn more about the technologies of today and tomorrow, and the occupations associated with these innovations. Many free resources are available. Here are three examples: The Future of Tech (www.futureoftech.org) is a growing library of resources on what’s new and what’s next in the world of technology. Topics such as artificial intelligence, augmented and virtual reality, big data and the internet of things are highlighted on the site, which is designed for anyone interested in learning more about technologies that are shaping the way we live and work. The IT Career Roadmap (www.comptia.org/content/it-careerspath-roadmap) offers insights into a variety of career paths, including tech support, networking, cybersecurity, data and software and web development. The IT Salary Calculator (https://www.comptia.org/content/it-salarycalculator) allows you to explore salary estimates for different tech occupations at different levels of expertise. The calculator includes salary data from 400 different metropolitan areas covering 85% of the U.S. population, from an IT support specialist in Portland, Maine ($52,750) to a cybersecurity analyst in Portland, Ore. ($101,530). “If you don’t believe technology is a viable career choice, consider all of the things you’ve done today that are made possible by technology -- from the car you drive and the streaming entertainment channels you enjoy to a telehealth visit with your doctor and the ease and efficiency of online banking,” says McGlinchey. The IT field is no longer a world of pocket protectors and motherboards. With more people using more devices than ever before to stay connected to one another, industry experts say that today’s IT workforce is open for business for anyone with great curiosity, creativity, personality and versatility.
5 Hobbies To Keep Your Body And Mind Healthy And Happy (StatePoint) As the pandemic continues to restrict many of the places you are able or inclined to go, finding ways to stay active is important for keeping the body and mind healthy and happy. Here are some ideas for new hobbies to try. • Learn a language: Bonjour! ¡Hola! With an array of online language classes and tutorials available at your fingertips, learning a new language is more accessible than ever. Start now while you fantasize about a post-pandemic vacation overseas. • Play an instrument: Learning to play an instrument is not only a great distraction for the current moment, it can provide you with years of joy as your skill develops. Consider starting your musical journey on a Casiotone keyboard. By connecting the keyboard to the free Chordana Play app, you can easily learn to play your favorite songs from downloaded MIDI files. Once you’ve mastered the instrument, the portability of the keyboard will come in handy, whether you play solo or join a band. • Become a home chef: From sushi to soufflé to dumplings, there are likely a range of dishes you have never attempted making at home. Tackle your culinary bucket list, one-by-one. • Go hiking: There is no better hobby for staying fit and communing with nature than hiking, which works every muscle of the body, boosts cardiovascular health and even improves mood and mental wellbeing. Track your hike using a wearable tech tool geared for outdoor enthusiasts, such as a watch from the Casio’s Pro Trek line. Quad Sensor technology packs all the measurements you need into one compact hiking watch, including a compass, altitude/barometer and temperature measurements, along with an accelerometer that tracks step count. Calorie calculations use both step count and altitude information to take upgrades and downgrades into consideration, and data is recorded by the Pro Trek connected app. • Volunteer: At a time when many people are struggling, consider volunteering your time to serve those in need. There are plenty of safe, socially distant volunteer opportunities, from delivering meals to the homebound, to video conferencing with socially isolated seniors to helping boost adult literacy via remote tutoring. Amid the ongoing pandemic, staying busy and positive may take creativity. However, discovering new hobbies and pursuits you love can nurture the body, mind and soul.

The U.S. Supreme Court was established by Article Three of the U.S. Constitution, which took effect in March 1789. • On Feb. 7, 1812, the most violent of a series of earthquakes near Missouri causes a so-called fluvial tsunami in the Mississippi River, making the river run backward for several hours. The strongest of the aftershocks, an 8.8-magnitude, caused church bells to ring in Boston, over a thousand miles away. • On Feb. 4, 1861, delegates from South Carolina, Mississippi, Florida, Alabama, Georgia and Louisiana convene to establish the Confederate States of America. Within two months, Virginia, Arkansas, North Carolina and Tennessee all had joined the Confederacy. • On Feb. 6, 1891, three members of the Dalton Gang stage an unsuccessful train robbery in California -- an inauspicious beginning to their careers as serious criminals. A year later, the gang botched another robbery, boldly attempting to hit two Kansas banks at the same time. • On Feb. 3, 1953, French oceanographer Jacques-Yves Cousteau publishes "The Silent World," a memoir about his time exploring the oceans. In 1950, Lord Guinness, a British patron, bought him an old British minesweeper to use for his underwater explorations. Cousteau christened it Calypso. • On Feb. 2, 1980, details of ABSCAM, an FBI sting operation to uncover political corruption in the government, are released to the public.

My Thoughts by Michele Harvey
Remembering The Holocaust And More Recent History by Kiki Skagen Munshi
1st Jab Is In! Well, it’s on the way, COVID immunity. Four weeks to the second shot and may the next time be better than this. We all have them, Those Days. Except this was more than one day since it began by getting stuck in the snow on the road out the day before. There is a little hill after the corral that is mostly in shade… forty minutes of digging with the help of a neighbor and inching forward did it and off we went to Cousin Jane’s for the Night Before The Shot. One thing about Julian is good neighbors. Another thing is that city people don’t know that they shouldn’t mess with Country Women. Petco Park, as many of you know, has many roads leading to the parking lot where UCSD is now putting COVID vaccine into older arms and all of those roads are choked up for blocks. Nearly three hours of sitting in the car, inching forward, bearable if dull except for a three minute interlude. A car driven by a younger woman and man tried to cut into line ahead of us. Mistake. The man got out and stood in front of our car, thinking we wouldn’t run him over and his friend could get her car in line. Mistake. He yelled we couldn’t go further because we’d crush his legs against the car in front of us. Oh, did he get that one wrong. Virtual cheers rose from the cars behind me when his nerve broke….as we said, don’t mess with Country Women. Especially ones who have spent years driving in Romania, Greece, Africa… The vaccination itself was like most vaccinations except we were able to continue sitting in our cars. And finally we could go—almost four hours after arriving at the lineup—but The Day wasn’t over. Homeward bound, it began to rain on the freeway. A downpour, the kind of blinding rain where you can barely see the road in front of you, let alone other cars. We survived that one and did some minimal shopping but as we left Costco, neighbors Bettie and Rudy called. It was snowing in Julian. We agreed to check in before reaching the Methodist Church and if it was really bad, Rudy would come and get us with his 4WDrive leaving our car in the Methodist Parking lot. Let’s hear it again for great neighbors! Fortunately, by Wynola it was only raining; the snow didn’t start until the grade up Pine Hills Road. Frisius was a bit snowy but passable. More and more snow but no real problem until we hit our (private) (and unplowed) road. In the end we slithered and slid down through the gate, didn’t quite get to the house but didn’t hit the gate posts or corral fence either. All’s well that ends well…but thank the Good Lord some things do end. Until the next shot.
Roz Brewer Is Showing Corporate America What It Means To Be Anti-Racist
by Marguerite Ward/Bussiness Insider
Rosalind Brewer has been championing diversity and inclusion for years as an American executive and CEO. photo: Alex Gallardo/Reuters • Rosalind "Roz" Brewer is the only Black woman leading a Fortune 500 company right now. • Throughout her career, she's been an outspoken advocate for racial and gender equity. • Brewer shows what it means to lead as an anti-racist executive, leadership experts told Insider. In a 2018 speech at her alma mater, Spelman College, Rosalind Brewer, the then-COO of Starbucks, told the graduating class of the all-female, historically Black college: "We are still Black women in a white male world." For her, those words still ring true. Recently named the incoming CEO of Walgreens Boots Alliance, the parent company of pharmacy chain Walgreens, Brewer is the only Black woman leading a Fortune 500 right now and just the third in modern history. Most of America's C-suite is white and male. But the executive, who goes by "Roz," is also an outspoken advocate for diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) and racial equity. Leadership consultants told Insider that Brewer is an example of an anti-racist leader. Antiracism is defined as the set of beliefs and actions that oppose racism and promote the inclusion and equality of Black and brown people in society. The way Brewer speaks with candor about racial equity, as well as some of the initiatives she's led, shows that she's serious about making change Admitting when you're wrong, and making it right In 2018, Rashon Nelson and Donte Robinson, both 23-year-old Black men, were arrested while sitting in a Philadelphia Starbucks. The men were waiting for their business partner, when a white female barista called the police on them. Video of their arrest quickly went viral, prompting protests and accusations of racism against the coffee chain and the police. At the time, Brewer was the COO of Starbucks. In the days following the arrest, she joined Starbucks CEO Kevin Johnson in meeting with Nelson and Robinson to personally apologize. They also separately spoke out about the incident to local press, condemning the events. Brewer made a statement about the events, showing how it impacted her personally. "When I saw the video, it sickened me because I began to think about my son, who's 23 years old and lives in Brooklyn," Brewer said. "I immediately thought about him and his safety. Secondly, I thought about what he must feel because my son is the kid that gets up on Saturday mornings and goes to Starbucks."
The International Holocaust Remembrance Day, which marked , 76 years ago , the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau, the largest Nazi extermination camp, was last week and a few of the survivors still live. In these days of white racists and neo-Nazis in our country I get afraid that those days could be happening here in some ways because this country of ours is filled with so much hatred. I am one of the privileged white people who live in our country. I grew up in a white neighborhood and went to schools that were primarily filled with white students until I got to community college. Even my Community College in La Mesa/ El Cajon wasn’t very homogenized racially back in in the late 1960s. For a short time, I dated a law student who introduced me to some Black Panther friends of his in their office, but in my innocence and mid-western type of whiteness upbringing that meeting was very scary. Outside their upstairs office door was a San Diego Police Uniform that had been mistreated. When my father was alive, he was San Diego Policeman, so that was particularly scary to me. However, I learned from those people that they took care of the people in their neighborhoods. They made sure that the children ate breakfast before going to school. So they weren’t all bad. I don’t mean to compare the Black Panthers with any other group of individuals who are trying to make changes. However, they learned to live by the 2nd amendment which gave them the right to bear arms to protect themselves. J. Edgar Hoover, head of the FBI for more years than most of us can remember was racist and was particularly upset that their programs to feed and educate children were successful. They still do what they can to help their communities and we still have a chapter in San Diego. Going back to the Holocaust, I read something that my niece posted and gave me permission to reprint. She and I are both interested in the Holocaust. We have watched documentaries about how it began which I have to say isn’t a lot different from what’s going on in our country right now. Fanatics are declaring that their way is the only right way and those of us who aren’t directly affected try to ignore them. We don’t like what they are doing, but we don’t do anything to improve relationships between races in our country. In 1921, in Italy, the Fascist Party was invited to join the coalition government. By October 1922, Italy seemed to be slipping into political chaos. Mussolini abandoned any plan of working with parliament and took steps to create a totalitarian state, including suppression of the opposition press, (what Donald Trump calls Fake News) exclusion of non-Fascist ministers, and formation of a secret police. The Black Shirts marched on Rome and Mussolini presented himself as the only man capable of restoring order. King Victor Emmanuel invited Mussolini to form a government which he did until 1943 and was consequently killed in April of 1945 by firing squad. Mussolini was responsible for the deaths of approximately 400,000 people. Adolph Hitler learned from Benito Mussolini as did Federico Franco of Spain and went many steps further. He was a very charismatic man and when he gave speeches, people listened. Hitler wanted to be a painter and when others did not appreciate his talent he got upset. When he was sixteen, he moved to Vienna where his hatred of Jews became an obsession and historians do not really know why he hated them so much. During World War 1 he joined the German Army because though he was Austrian, he felt the German army was much better trained than the sloppiness of the Austrian Army. Hitler worked his way up and yes folks, Donald Trump used some of the same tactics by declaring the media to be the enemy and anyone who had an opinion that was different than his was a traitor or a loser. I see and hear so much hatred in our country today that it reminds me of the times when Benito Mussolini ruled and when Adolph Hitler ruled. White Supremacists in our country want to take it back? Why do they think it was ever theirs? Blacks first came here as Spanish slaves in 1526. Caucasian Europeans didn’t bring their black slaves until 1619 or 1620, so blacks were here nearly one hundred years before white folk showed up and native Americans were here long before that. From my niece Annie, “Casually calling someone Hitler, the Gestapo, or a Nazi desensitizes us to the true actions of those real figures. Suggesting re-education camps, cleansing, extermination, or making lists of a group of people based on the way they were born, their profession, or their thoughts is a slippery slope to an unthinkable end.” “It is easy to say that Hitler is the root of the evil of the Holocaust, but there were choices made by millions of people that led to this dark era of our world’s history.” * Just as many are making those choices in this country today. From Annie “In today’s society, hatred for many different groups of people is running rampant. We all think we are in the ‘right’ group, but so did the Germans. What happens tomorrow when your group is suddenly deemed ‘wrong’?” “Holocaust is a term that, much like genocide… is one group of people systematically killing another group of people based on a uniting trait.” * Again from Annie “Hating an entire group of people is dangerous. On this Remembrance Day, let us not lose sight of the power of that hate. We remember the victims of the Holocaust; we honor them by not allowing ourselves to go down a path that has already been traveled.” #WeRemember Quotes marked with (*) are from The Pritzker Military Museum & Library’s Holocaust Remembrance Day video: If we held a moment of silence for every victim of the Holocaust we would be silent for eleven and a half years. These are my thoughts, Annie Regstad’s thoughts and quotes from the Pritzker Military Museum & Library’s Holocaust Remembrance Day video. Leadership consultant, speaker, and coach Arquella Hargrove told Insider that Brewer's tone and messaging, in the Philadelphia store incident, as well as other times she's spoken about racial equity, show that she's serious about change. "As an anti-racist advocate and leader, she is communicating her stance with humility, empathy and compassion, which are also the characteristics of an inclusive leader fostering an inclusive environment," Hargrove told Insider. Beyond apologizing, Brewer pledged action. "We can look at this moment as a point in history - or as a transformation," Brewer said. A month later, the company closed its US stores to conduct four hours of racial bias training for employees. The company then rolled out 12 more trainings over the following months on topics like empathy, team building, and inclusion. The coffee chain also updated its store policy to welcome non-paying guests to sit in its stores and use its restrooms. The two men reached a private settlement with Starbucks for an undisclosed sum. They also received an offer of free college tuition continued on page 8

Dementia Related Psychosis: Four Caregiver Facts You Need to Know
(StatePoint) Approximately 2.4 million people or 30 percent of people living with dementia in the U.S. may experience hallucinations and delusions associated with dementia-related psychosis. These symptoms might include seeing something that isn’t there or believing something that isn’t true and can be frequent, persistent and recur over time.
According to advocates, improving management of these troubling symptoms starts with recognizing and understanding what patients are experiencing. To learn more, UsAgainstAlzheimer’s, the Lewy Body Dementia Association (LBDA) and Acadia Pharmaceuticals, surveyed patients and their caregivers. Findings highlighted important, infrequently discussed, considerations for caregivers: 1. Symptoms can happen frequently: The most common symptoms of dementia-related psychosis reported by surveyed patients were visual hallucinations (89 percent), auditory hallucinations (54 percent) and distortion of senses (54 percent) and such symptoms can happen frequently. Of patients who reported recent visual hallucinations, 61 percent indicated they occurred at least weekly. In addition, the majority of care partners (77 percent) reported paranoid delusions as occurring at least weekly. “Given their potential frequency, being prepared to recognize, report, and manage these symptoms is critical,” says Theresa Frangiosa of UsAgainstAlzheimer’s, one of the survey authors. “My mom experienced these kinds of symptoms associated with her Alzheimer’s disease and in talking with other caregivers, many people think this could never happen to their family until it does.” 2. Dementia-related hallucinations and delusions greatly impact a patient’s overall health and quality of life: Most surveyed patients said their activities of daily living (75 percent), sleep (63 percent), family life (56 percent), and safety (about 56 percent) were affected by dementia-related hallucinations and delusions. Care partners reported that symptoms make it difficult for their loved ones to know what is real and what is not real, contributing to their anxiety, and impacting their personal relationships. Jo Anne, 70, from Maryland, was surprised by her husband’s hallucinations. “Before Ed was diagnosed with Lewy body dementia, he would tell me that he saw mice or insects in the house so, of course, I’d go check! When these experiences increased in frequency, I knew that we needed to talk to his doctor about why he was having persistent hallucinations.” Research shows that these kind of neuropsychiatric symptoms may pose challenges. For example, studies show that presence of psychosis in Alzheimer’s patients was also associated with 1.5 times increased likelihood of death. 3. Care partners are affected too: Dementia-related hallucinations and delusions are symptoms that can be associated with all forms of dementia such as Lewy body dementia, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease dementia, vascular dementia, and frontotemporal dementia. Unfortunately, caregivers of people with dementia compared to non-caregivers can experience high rates of emotional and physical stress as well as depression, an increased likelihood of comorbid conditions, hospitalizations, and doctor visits. In fact, caregiver burden is associated with increased desire to place people with dementia in long-term care. 4. Getting help as early as possible is key: Living with dementiarelated hallucinations and delusions takes a toll on both patients and caregivers. That’s why advocates urge caregivers to get educated about what to expect from dementia-related psychosis and find support. “If you see your loved one exhibiting new symptoms, then take the initiative to tell their health care provider, who can offer advice on how to cope,” urges Frangiosa. For more information, visit usagainstalzheimers.org. UsAgainstAlzheimer’s is an advocacy and research-focused organization pushing for expanding treatments and research for Alzheimer’s disease. Additional education is available from LBDA at www.lbda.org. While the symptoms of dementia-related psychosis can be hard to recognize at first, reporting symptoms is the first step to finding support.
Captain Tom Hospitalized For Virus He Raised Money To Fight LONDON (AP) — Tom Moore, the 100-year-old World War II veteran who captivated the British public in the early days of the coronavirus pandemic with his fundraising efforts, has been hospitalized with COVID-19, his daughter said Sunday. Hannah Ingram-Moore revealed in a statement posted on Twitter that her father, widely known as Captain Tom, has been admitted to Bedford Hospital because he needed “additional help” with his breathing. She said that over the past few weeks her father had been treated for pneumonia and that he had tested positive for the coronavirus last week. She said he is being treated in a ward, not in an intensive care unit. “The medical care he has received in the last few weeks has been remarkable and we know that the wonderful staff at Bedford Hospital will do all they can to make him comfortable and hopefully return home as soon as possible,” she said. Moore became an emblem of hope in the early weeks of the pandemic in April when he walked 100 laps around his garden in England for the National Health Service to coincide with his 100th birthday. Instead of the 1,000 pounds ($1,370) aspiration, he raised around 33 million pounds ($45 million). Moore, who rose to the rank of captain while serving in India and Burma during the war, was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II in July for his fundraising efforts. Best wishes came in from far and wide, including from British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, who said in a tweet that Moore had "inspired the whole nation, and I know we are all wishing you a full recovery.”

Chef’s Corner A Toast To Your Health One of the best things about writing a food and recipe column is the opportunity to introduce my family, friends and readers to something new. I also enjoy experimenting with new ingredients and products. Recently, I discovered a wonderful line of naturally sweetened, zerocalorie beverages called Zevia. It’s one of the first drink brands focused on healthy versions of sodas (14 different kinds), energy drinks (grapefruit, mango ginger, raspberry, lime and
kola), sparking water (lime, blackberry, Mandarin orange and cucumber lemon), as well as a line of mixers, organic teas and Zevia Kidz. So, what is Zevia Kidz? It’s got the fizz of soda and the

Ever see a movie clock before? This unusual apparatus made in 1928 sold for $855. It was used for publicity for the movie “Noah’s Ark,” a Warner Brothers picture with Dolores Costello and George O’Brien -- long forgotten movie stars.

item comes up at auction, there is no previous sale to give a hint of the value. So, when this Warner Brothers Pictures clock was offered at a William Morford sale, the catalog just said "minimum bid $100." The cast iron is shaped like an ark. It has a clockface and the "clock" runs for a short time when the ark is rocked. The clockface shows scenes from the 1928 movie "Noah's Ark" -- a part "talkie" movie. There were several collectors who probably wanted movie memorabilia who bid until the final price was $855. If there had been no description of how and why it worked, the ark might not have even sold. We researched the name of the maker, Art Metal Works, and learned it was started by Louis Aronson (1869-1940), an inventor with a company in New York City, then Newark, New Jersey. The company is famous for the Ronson lighter patented in 1910. (No doubt Mr. Aronson inspired the name.) The company was
sold to Zippo in 2010. *** Q: I'm moving into a senior living residence and won't have room for my large collection of half dolls. One of the dolls has her hand broken off, but I don't know the best way to fasten it back on. Many of the dolls are from around the world. I bought them when I worked in Germany and Okinawa. How can I find someone interested in buying them? A: Half dolls, also known as pincushion dolls, were first made in 1908 and were popular until the 1930s. They were made with a porcelain upper body attached to a large cloth skirt and were used to cover a pincushion, powder box, pot of tea or other items. Most are found today without the skirt. Prices depend on size, decoration, condition and style. Closed arm half dolls sell for the lowest prices. Those with arms extended away from the body sell
for the highest prices. Contact an auction house that specializes in dolls. Half dolls have sold at auction for $100 to over $1,000. They are hard to find and a popular collectible. Don't try to repair the broken doll yourself. A poorly done repair significantly lowers value. *** CURRENT PRICES Delft plate, blue, white, women and children standing on riverbank, windmills and trees, small boat, c. 1841, 9 inches, $72.

to complete bachelor's degrees through an online program with Arizona State University, a program created for Starbucks' employees. Kailei Carr, CEO leadership development firm The Asbury Group, said Brewer's words and actions exemplified antiracism at work. Brewer not only addressed the situation and admitted Starbucks was wrong, but pledged companywide, national action. Dismantling systemic racism is at the core of being an anti-racist executive, Carr said. "Hearing about the steps she personally took after the racially-charged incident at the Philadelphia Starbucks store in 2018, and how she both took personal responsibility as well as took immediate and strategic action, shows me that she is serious about anti-racism," Carr said. An outspoken advocate for DEI Brewer is an outspoken advocate on racial and gender equity and she was openly discussing these issues when fewer executives were having conversations about DEI. In a 2015 interview with CNN, Brewer said she "demanded" diversity of her team. At the time, she was the CEO of Sam's Club, making her the first Black woman to lead a division within Walmart. During that same interview, she described a meeting with a supplier, where all of the executives where white men. "That was interesting," she said, adding that she was "going

to place a call" to the supplier to talk about their team's lack of diversity. In response, people called Brewer a racist and encouraged a boycott of Sam's Club stores. Soon after, Doug McMillon, Walmart's CEO, issued a statement supporting Brewer. "Roz was simply trying to reiterate that we believe diverse and inclusive teams make for a stronger business. That's all there is to it and I support that important ideal," he said. Brewer has proven time and time again to be a DEI advocate, Carr said. Anti-racist leaders aren't afraid to call out injustices or systemic oppressive structures and to take action. "I bet none of us will ever know all of the things she has done to chip away at the oppressive structures that have existed at her previous organizations," Carr said.

In a 2020 TED Talk, Brewer spoke out about corporate action in the wake of the killing of George Floyd, calling on more executives to invest in Black and brown employees through mentorship and sponsorship programs. America's C-suites will continue to lack diversity, unless executives invest in programs to develop talent from marginalized communities and focus on inclusion, Brewer said. Hargrove said the incoming Walgreens CEO takes a clear stand on diversity and inclusion and makes those tenants a priority. "Bottom line, she is showing the actions of a CEO dedicated to leaving a DEI footprint," she said. *** People don't notice whether it's winter or summer when they're happy. — Anton Chekhov ***

Paleontologists Stunned By A Perfectly Preserved Dinosaur Footprint Discovered By 4-Year-Old Girl
from Business Insider/Sophia Anke
A four-year-old girl stunned paleontologists after she found a perfectly-preserved dinosaur footprint that dates back 220 million years. Lily Wilder made the discovery on January 23 while walking along a beach in South Wales with her father and dog. The family was on their way to the supermarket when Wilder saw the footprint imprinted on a rock. "It was on a low rock, shoulder height for Lily, and she just spotted it and said, 'look, Daddy,'" her mother, Sally Wilder, told NBC News. "She is really excited but doesn't quite grasp how amazing it is." At first, the family thought the print, which is just over 10 cm (4 inches) long, was scratched out
on the rock by an artist. But mother Sally was aware that similar footprints had been found along that piece of the coast before, so she posted about their discovery on social media. "I found this fossil identification page on Facebook and I posted it on there and people went a bit crazy," she told Wales Online. Shortly after, The National Museum of Wales was in touch with the Wilder family, and officials have since retrieved the print and put it in the museum. Experts believe the footprint was most likely left by a dinosaur that stood about 75 centimeters (29.5 inches) tall and 2.5 meters (about 8 feet) long and walked on its two hind feet.
It is impossible to identify exactly what type of dinosaur left it, although experts typically classify the print as a Grallator. Welsh scientists are calling the girl's discovery "the finest impression of a 215 million-yearold dinosaur print found in Britain in a decade," according to Wales Online. "It's so perfect and absolutely pristine. It's a wonderful piece," said Karl-James Langford from Archeology Cyrmu, according to Wales Online. "I would say it's internationally important and that is why the museum took it straight away. This is how important it is. I would say it's the best dinosaur footprint found in the UK in the continued on page 11

Case For A Newsom Recall Continues To Grow
by Jon Coupal
After some fits and starts, the recall effort against Gov. Gavin Newsom appears to be gaining traction. Proponents say they have collected over 1 million signatures. Media reports of a halfmillion dollar donation to the effort plus rumors of even more forthcoming are getting the attention of California’s political establishment. If the required 1.5 million valid signatures are submitted before the mid-March deadline and subsequently verified, a special election will be held and California voters will soon thereafter vote on the recall. That is, unless the California Legislature pulls another fast one as it did in 2017, passing a lastminute change to the rules or the election calendar. Any such attempt would be extremely unwise, with public confidence in government already low. On the ballot, the recall question would be accompanied by a separate question of who would replace the incumbent if the recall passed. (In the October 2003 recall election of Gov. Gray Davis, a total of 135 candidates were on the ballot as replacement candidates, including pornographer Larry Flynt and former TV child star Gary Coleman). Recalls are not easy and are fraught with many unknowns. They are expensive and the complicated politics of multiple replacement candidates, each seeking a plurality of votes, makes the state’s “jungle” primaries seem simple by comparison. Polling is unreliable in such an environment, and there’s a Wild West atmosphere to the process. Nonetheless, recalls are a legitimate political remedy when the public loses confidence in an elected official. At least a million Californians have reached that point. Irrespective of whether support for the recall is broad based or narrow among California voters, it is clear that the effort is being greatly assisted by Gov. Newsom himself. Where to start? First, the gross mismanagement of the Employment Development Department has been breathtaking. While unemployed Californians have been given the run-around when they seek the benefits to which they are entitled, fraudsters have been
allowed to rob the system of more than $8 billion, according to recent estimates. Second, the state’s distribution of COVID-19 vaccines has been a disaster. Despite months of advanced notice, the lack of a coherent plan on distribution has put California near or at the bottom relative to other states in the percentage of vaccines that have been delivered to the Californians who are waiting for them. Third, the ever shifting and arbitrary metrics that have prohibited the safe reopening of businesses and schools have caused unnecessary confusion in both the private and public sectors. Fourth, property owners were profoundly and rightfully disappointed that the governor refused to consider suspension of costly penalties for delayed payments of property taxes, even as job losses mounted, housing providers struggled to pay their bills without rental income, and commercial property owners saw their tenants shut down by state orders. Fifth, Newsom refused to consider a deferment of the scheduled minimum-wage increase while so many service and hospitality businesses were desperately trying to keep their employees working in compliance with the state’s limitations on their ability to operate. Sixth, property owners were stunned to see his endorsement of Proposition 15, the most significant attack on Proposition 13 in its 42-year history. The $12-billion “split roll” initiative was defeated in November, notwithstanding his support. Finally, Gov. Gavin Newsom’s personal behavior has revealed little sensitivity to the struggles of Californians who have been asked to make extraordinary sacrifices. The infamous dinner at the French Laundry restaurant is but one example of his perceived hypocrisy. Citizens bristle when politicians say “do as I say, not as I do.” It would be foolish to venture a prediction about the recall effort’s success or failure. But the outcome may well be determined by the governor’s own actions if they continue to raise legitimate questions about his competence. *** Jon Coupal is the president of the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association (HJTA).

Grizzly bears used to be fairly common across the American West, but these days only a few thousand of the majestic creatures roam free in and around Yellowstone National Park and Washington's North Cascades. Credit: Pixabay. Dear EarthTalk: What’s the latest on efforts to reintroduce Grizzly bears back to the Lower 48? -- J. Whitaker, silver Spring, MD Grizzly bears, once a common sight in the Lower 48, were hunted and killed to near extinction over the century that followed colonialism. Today, these majestic, lumbering creatures are the focus of many restoration efforts in the United States. Grizzlies are an important part of the ecosystems they typically inhabit. They aerate soils in the meadows where they dig, distribute plant seeds across the forest floor after eating fruits and nuts, and are a keystone species given their position at the top of the food chain—i.e., if Grizzly populations are suffering, so must be other wildlife populations in the region. In addition to their ecological importance, Grizzly bears also hold a great cultural value for many Native American tribes and Canadian First Nations. Before colonizers came into the Americas from abroad, scientists think some 50,000 Grizzly bears lived between the Pacific coast and the Great Plains. According to the non-profit Western Wildlife Outreach, Grizzlies were eliminated from 98 percent of their original range in the contiguous U.S. between 1850 and 1970. Sport hunting, fur trading, farming, and the fact that until the mid-20th century, most of these bears would be shot on sight, nearly eradicating them entirely. Today, fewer than 1,400 Grizzlies remain in the Lower 48, most of them in and around Yellowstone National Park. Trace DNA evidence shows a small number (less than five) live in and around North Cascades National Park in Washington State. All of these populations are seeing positive growth trends in recent years due to restoration efforts by environmental groups, indigenous activists and wildlife biologists. But it’s an uphill battle managing existing protected habitat for ideal Grizzly conditions while keeping livestock ranchers around the periphery of Yellowstone from unloading their rifles at their first sight of a Grizzly’s signature hump. And like many other animal species, Grizzlies now face a new threat: climate change. Their populations have been migrating farther north, and have been encountering another competitor: Polar bears, which. have had viable offspring in areas where the two species have population overlap. Unfortunately, the rapid changes that are accompanying climate change will be difficult to overcome for even a Grizzly bear. “There are only a couple Grizzly bear populations that are viable in the United States. Says Wendy Keefover from the Humane Society of the United States: “There are just these tiny islands of Grizzly bear populations left. They need far more protection, not less.” Active work in restoration continues to be extremely important to American ecosystems for these cornerstone populations. To help with Grizzly bear restoration, visit the website of the Friends of the North Cascades Grizzly Bear and add your name to their list of “Friends of the Grizzly” to receive updates on the campaign that has been pushing for more federal efforts to protect the iconic bears.

Keep Your Air Clean (NAPSI)—People are increasingly concerned about dirt and germs these pandemic days, but many are neglecting an unseen area where airborne contaminants can lurk: the air ducts. Even in the cleanest house, the indoor air system can recirculate dust, dirt, and particles from renovation and remodeling projects. Why It’s Important Your home’s heating and cooling system is the lungs of your home. The system pulls air from your rooms; filters, heats or cools it; and sends it back out again. Unfortunately, the average home generates 40 pounds of dust a year, so the filters can’t get every speck. They get clogged and can send contaminants back into your home. This can lead not only to unhealthy air—a particular problem for children, seniors and those with respiratory or autoimmune conditions—but higher energy bills as well. What To Do Fortunately, it can be easy to have clean ducts when you turn to a reputable, certified HVAC professional. Where To Turn Making it simple to find one is NADCA (National Air Duct Cleaners Association). Its members comply with a code of ethics and meet the organization’s high standards.

The family says their daughter's interest in dinosaurs has been ignited since the discovery and that she's been playing with a collection of dino toys and models. The National Museum in Cardiff, which is currently closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, said that Lily and her classmates would be invited to the exhibition once it reopens. "What's amazing is, if her name goes down as the finder in the museum, it could be her grandchildren going to visit that in the museum one day, and for years and years and generations to come, which is quite amazing," mother Sally told Wales Online. *** It's not what happens to you, but how you react to it that matters. — Epictetus ***

TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) The Bold Bovine is tempted to charge into a new venture. But it might be best to take things one step at a time so that you know just where you are at any given point. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) It's a good time to go on that fun getaway you've been planning. You'll return refreshed, ready and, yes, even eager to tackle the new challenge that awaits you. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) The Moon Child loves to fantasize about magical happenings in the early part of the week. But the sensible Crab gets down to serious business by week's end.

The Board of Directors will be discussing increasing the deposit required when opening a new account or for accounts that are often in arrears. The current charge is $120 and an increase to $200 is being proposed. This helps protect the District from nonpayment after an account is closed. Holding deposits until a customer closes their account is also being proposed. The Board of Directors will also review the fees charged for all other District services including meter removal and reinstallation, account transfer fees and locking/unlocking meters for nonpayment. One or more of these fees may be increased. A hearing on these proposed changes to the Majestic Pines Community Services District fee structure will be held at 7:00 pm, Wednesday, February 17, 2021 at the Julian Sheriff Substation conference room, 2907 Washington St., Julian, CA 92036. A mask and social distancing are required. These proposed changes would go into effect March 1, 2021. LEGAL: 08689 Publish: February 3, 10, 2021

This Long-Term Side Effect of COVID-19 Makes Food Intolerable, Scientists Say Some people who have recovered from the novel coronavirus now have altered senses of taste and smell. One of the most common side effects associated with the novel coronavirus is the loss of taste and smell. In fact, research shows 86% of people with mild cases suffer from this temporary symptom. What's not normal? When that symptom turns into something more long-term. Parosmia is the term used to describe health conditions that distort your perception of certain scents. While it isn't a common side effect of COVID-19 infection, several instances have occurred worldwide—a depressing and even debilitating consequence for those whose sense of taste and smell still has yet to return to normal, despite recovering from the virus. Parosmia can cause once pleasant odors, such as those of a favorite food, a perfume, a bar of soap, or even a cup of coffee, to be perceived as putrid, burnt, or chemical in nature, as reported by the BBC. Many people who had COVID—and either partially or entirely lost their sense of taste and smell—were able to fully recover both senses within a few weeks. But in the case of those who develop parosmia, their sense of taste and smell may remain altered for up to three years. Not only does parosmia cause certain smells to become unpleasant, but it may also lead to malnutrition, as several people report an inability to tolerate consuming many foods. A 47-year-old woman from the UK told the BBC that she's unable to eat anything but bread or cheese due to the condition and, in part, hardly has any energy. While the actual duration of this side effect from COVID-19 won't be determined until years to come, other studies have shown that parosmia typically isn't permanent. In fact, according to 2012 research, in 60% of parosmia cases that were caused by an infection, the sense of smell was restored in later years.
