Tuesday and Wednesday, the Julian Library hosted the second round of vaccinations for those who had received their first back in February. Tuesday most got their “jab” without having to get out of their car. Wednesday with the heavy weather “Operation Colaboration” moved inside to accomodat the the folks who came by for shot #2. More than a million doses of the COVID-19 vaccines have been administered in the region, the County Health and Human Services Agency reported today. Of those vaccinated to date, more than 319,000, or nearly 12 percent of San Diegans 16 and older, are fully immunized. A total of 619,924 people, or 23.1 percent, have received at least one dose of the two-dose regimen. “We are making great progress in vaccinating San Diegans but it is too soon to let our guard down,” said Wilma J. Wooten, M.D., M.P.H., County public health officer. “Herd immunity does not occur until at least 70 percent of the population 16 and older is fully vaccinated and we have a ways to go before we can get back to many of the things we miss.” The region’s vaccination efforts are slowed by shortages in vaccine supply, forcing several vaccination sites across the region to pause. The following sites will be paused through Monday: the Lemon Grove Community Center, the Central Region Immunization Clinic in Logan Heights, the Copley-Price YMCA in City Heights, the Martin Luther King Community Center in National City, the Border View YMCA in Otay Mesa and the Linda Rhoades Recreation Center in Vista. The North Coastal Live Well Center in Oceanside is closed but will open Monday for second doses. Additional information about the temporary closures of the vaccination sites can be accessed here. <https://www.sandiegocounty.gov/content/sdc/hhsa/programs/ phs/community_epidemiology/dc/2019-nCoV/vaccines/COVID-19VaxEvents/Vaccinations-Schedule.html> Vaccination Progress: - Of the 1.1 million COVID-19 vaccine doses delivered to the region, more than 1,026,000 have been logged as administered. Of those vaccinated to date, more than 319,000, or nearly 12 percent of San Diegans 16 and older, are fully immunized. - Overall, more than 619,000 County residents have received at least one shot of two-dose vaccine. That’s 23.1 percent of those eligible. - The difference between doses delivered and those used in a vaccination represents approximately what is expected to be administered in the next seven days and doses still to be entered in the record system. - More information about vaccine distribution can be found on the County’s vaccination dashboard.

Emergency Rental Assistance Applications Now Open

Land Management

from Felicia Hill and Lysa Copeland

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

Low-income San Diegans who have experienced a financial impact due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic can now apply for rental and utility assistance grants from the County. During the COVID-19 update to the County Board of Supervisors Tuesday, David Estrella, director of Housing and Community Development Services, said San Diegans can apply for financial assistance to help lessen housing cost burdens and maintain housing stability. The County’s Emergency Rental Assistance Program is funded by over $100 million in state and federal monies. To be eligible, households must be renting and have experienced a financial hardship related to COVID-19 or have qualified for unemployment during the pandemic. Both landlords and tenants can apply; however, tenants will have to co-sign applications submitted by the landlord. For more information or to apply, visit www.sdhcd.org. The application period will be open for three weeks and will be extended if necessary. “If you’ve received assistance through a past rent or utility assistance program, you may still apply for the outstanding rent or utilities that have not been covered,” Estrella said. The County’s Emergency Rental Assistance Program will assist San Diego residents countywide, except for those residing in the cities of San Diego and Chula Vista. Residents of San Diego and Chula Vista can visit http://www.ERAPSanDiego. org for information about rental assistance programs in those cities.

Top of original fire break January 23, 2021

Looking toward the top of fire break March 6, 2021 We had the unfortunate experience of embarking on our regular neighborhood walk onto BLM land, that borders the community of Kenwood One, only to find that the newly recovering local chaparral hillside had been extensively cleared. This area has two benches, one overlooking Julian and the other a desert view, that local community members have enjoyed with their families for years. It is now a barrenlandscape. This area had an existing firebreak with a fire that came through July 3rd 2014. Being homeowners in Julian, and one of us a 5th generation resident, we are fully aware of the fears and concerns that people have pertaining to their homes and businesses when it comes to wildfires. Our concern though, is at what cost do we protect our homes. Furthermore, we question Cal Fires expansion of the fire break. The area now has reduced vegetation which will undoubtedly lead to erosion. Cal Fire has acknowledged that Vegetation Treatment Programs are not effective during wind driven fires.(California Chaparral Institute). However, Julian’s major fires like the Cedar and Witch fire were wind driven and caused the most amount of catastrophic damage.

Part of the curriculum teaches that after a fire, in order to replenish the nutrients in the soil, these manzanita groves are essential in the continued on page 10 SRAEY

It is hard to imagine anything more exhausting than the constant indignation of so-called conservatives, who somehow sustain a state of rigid, barking anger over the direction of American culture. To them, every advance for human rights represents the imminent end of civilization, and every small effort to assuage historical injuries signals the twilight of liberty. These crank crusades always have multiple objectives, both political and commercial. On the political side, the Republicans are desperate to distract us from the roaring successes of President Joe Biden's administration, whose program of vaccine production and distribution and pandemic relief legislation are about to rescue the nation from former President Donald Trump's lingering disasters. And on the commercial side, there is nothing like a cultural jihad to separate fools from their money. The propaganda phrase of the moment is "cancel culture," a terrifying phenomenon manifested just this week in the supposed liquidation of Dr. Seuss. If you believe what you hear on Fox News Channel, the late author of dozens of classic books beloved by children and adults alike — and many other works of art in film and cartooning — is on the verge of being censored, erased, and vilified. Who is doing these terrible things? According to Fox and various other right-wing outlets, this assault is the work of "them," a suitably vague category that encompasses liberals, tech companies, Democrats, and probably Joe Biden himself. Of course, if you believe what you hear on One America Network, NewsMax and Fox News, then you are, by definition, a dupe. The actual event that provoked all the outrage over Dr. Seuss has nothing to do with Biden, Democrats or any other favorite Fox villains. The Seuss estate, which oversees the 60 books and other properties he left to posterity, decided to pull a half-dozen of them because their content includes dated and offensive stereotypes. When you remember that his first book was published more than 80 years ago, that dissonance seems almost inevitable. The estate's decision, a sensible response to changing standards, was plainly designed to protect both the Seuss brand and the memory of Theodor Seuss Geisel as a liberal humanist. It is the opposite of "canceling" Dr. Seuss. And anyone who wants to read the old titles can still find them. The Seuss non-scandal is a fine example of misdirection and distraction, and a powerful indication that Republicans really have nothing to say for themselves. This time, the consequences are harmless, mainly the further enrichment of the Seuss estate as gullible Americans flood Amazon with orders for his books, which they evidently fear are about to be torched by "the radical left." The irony is that Dr. Seuss was himself a lifelong Democrat whose advocacy of liberal causes dated back to the New Deal, when he drew scores of blistering cartoons for the left-leaning daily New York newspaper PM, usually on the subject of Republican perfidy. He despised Hitler, Mussolini, Charles Lindbergh, and the original "America First" movement; he deplored racism and anti-Semitism; and he served patriotically in the war against fascism. He would have low regard for the Trumpists who are now misusing his good name. While Dr. Seuss avoided the kind of moralizing that repels young readers, his stories and poems often grappled with contemporary issues, from authoritarianism (Yertle the Turtle) and racial equality (The Sneetches) to environmental degradation (The Lorax) and even materialism (How the Grinch Stole Christmas!). What his books were really about is learning, everything from vocabulary words to personal and societal integrity. He wasn't afraid of change or changing his mind, which is why it seems likely that, were he alive today, he'd want to revise or withdraw offensive content he created so long ago. After World War II, he came to regret his own racially charged contributions to anti-Japanese propaganda, which is said to be why he dedicated Horton Hears A Who! — an allegory about the U.S. occupation of Japan — to a Japanese friend. In short, the right-wing pundits and personalities leaping to "defend" Dr. Seuss now could learn a lot from reading him. Being who they are, they probably won't.

Spirit Day At Jr. High

Leadership During The Pandemic

by Jethro Lewis, 8th Grade President of the ASB

During the pandemic, our definition of normal had been changed severely, but through it all, the ASB has been making sure that our school is still fun and safe. While communication has been more difficult, we have still managed to make many improvements to the school to boost school spirit and a sense of community. For starters we have repainted the old foursquare court, and are currently in the process of making a new one for kids to enjoy. Our homeroom competition directors have hosted a three day spirit day, one day for each grade of kids. We have sent out goody bags several times to all of our students, both online and in person. We have had spirit dress up weeks for back to school, Red Ribbon Week and Halloween in October, Thanksgiving in November, Christmas and winter festivities in December, Valentine’s Day in February, and we hope to have some fun with St. Patrick’s Day in March. There have been crazy socks, ugly sweaters, mustache monday, twin tuesday, and pajama day - all ways to keep the students connected, engaged, and having fun while learning during a time where education looks different around the world. In addition to all that we have done, we have many more projects that are near completion. We are planning to start hosting clubs, which are going to be a fill in for electives, which we have not yet had this year. Some teachers have been doing yoga online for kids to stay fit. During distance learning, the ASB has hosted a variety of fun student-led activities, one being an online Chess Tournament and hopes of a Mincecraft one soon to come. We are also going to be hosting more school wide online tournaments in the weeks to come, with prizes for the winners. In addition, we are planning more spirit days, more tournaments, more goodybags, and more fun for our school. My favorite memory so far during this school year was our three day spirit day. Each grade had one day so that we could maintain cohorts but still have fun. We did a water balloon toss, charades, pie eating contest, limbo, and had fun music playing. The events were really fun, and the homeroom competition directors did a great job. Even though 8th graders lost to the underclassmen, we still had a lot of fun and it has been really nice to have some things like normal again. We are so thankful to all of the teachers and the administration for their constant encouragement and willingness to go above and beyond with helping us learn and stay engaged.

Jr High students on “Twins Day”

School Life In A Pandemic

by Alison Hernandez, 8th Grade JJH ASB Vice President

Last week opened the door to new possibilities after a short break. The Julian Jr. High and Julian Elementary school had their first day back last week after there was a positive covid case on the Jr. High Campus. Although some projects and activities went on hold it was a time to be grateful for the health and safety of the staff and students. In 2021 we are still living in a pandemic and while inconvenient it is important everyone does their part as we are all stronger together. After the positive covid case, both campuses shut down for two weeks and all the students had to transition to distance learning. For the students that have been going in person, it was a slight shock but gave the students an opportunity to grow. Without the structure, it was harder for students to maintain their grades and it was upsetting not to see friends and teachers. However, all hope was not lost as staff and students tried to keep the mood light and make this brief intermission as smooth and easy as possible. Soon enough the two weeks were going to be up. Last Monday was the first day of on-campus learning. While there are a lot of challenges and losses in this pandemic it is important to remember that this pandemic isn’t forever. In the face of adversity, as a community, we have to r to remember there is hope. As school reopened whilst following Covid-19 guidelines projects are picking up again and grades are too. The Junior High’s ASB has repainted the existing basketball courts and the foursquare court. While for the foreseeable future there aren’t any dances planned, fun alternatives have taken place. Almost every month there is a dressup week at the Junior High where all students are encouraged to dress up every day and earn Spirit Day Points to earn prizes. And at the end of every week, goody bags of treats are handed out to each student including distance learners who have the option to drive to continued on page 5

How to Plan For A Future Vacation (Family Features) After a long year stuck at home, many people are dreaming about when they can travel once again. While counting down the days may feel like torture, planning and booking a vacation for later this year can give you something to look forward to. Now may be the perfect time to start thinking about your next adventure. Consider these tips for planning a future trip - even if you're not certain exactly when you'll take it. Research Travel Restrictions For any kind of travel, it's important to make sure you're up to date on any restrictions your potential destinations may have in place. Though the vaccine may help lessen restrictions in some places, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention maintain updated guidance and travel warnings based on the risk level of certain areas, which can help you make decisions. Once you've booked travel plans, it is prudent to check in frequently as your trip approaches and prepare a backup plan. Account for High Demand Many hotels, vacation rentals and resorts may already be booked for summer in popular locations due to optimism around the vaccine, increased demand for domestic travel and families planning multiple trips this year. In fact, travelers are locking in private Vrbo vacation homes at top summer destinations earlier in 2021. Less than half of vacation homes in some locations are still available for July, which is a more than 25% increase in demand year-over-year. To better your

• On March 13, 1781, English astronomer William Hershel discovers Uranus, the seventh planet from the sun. It was the first discovery of a new planet in modern times, and the first to be made using a telescope. • On March 10, 1876, the first discernible speech is transmitted over a telephone system when inventor Alexander Graham Bell summons his assistant in another room by saying, "Mr. Watson, come here; I want you." • On March 14, 1914, stockcar racer Lee Arnold Petty is born near Randleman, North Carolina. In 1959, he won the Daytona 500. Lee Petty never lost a race on account of being too kind to his competitors, even if they were family. • On March 12, 1933, President Franklin D. Roosevelt gives his first national radio address broadcast from the White House, in which he explained his recent decision to close the nation's banks. • On March 8, 1971, Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier meet for the "Fight of the Century" at Madison Square Garden in New York City. The bout marked Ali's return after the boxing commission revoked his license over his refusal to fight in the Vietnam War.

odds of securing your desired travel dates, accommodations and activities, booking earlier can help off-set the increased demand. "In years past, we've recommended families book their summer vacations by late April to stay ahead of the curve, but this year there are several reasons why families are eager and ready to book," Vrbo President

Jeff Hurst said. "These signs are telling us families should start looking for the perfect vacation home now before options become more limited." Take Advantage of Deals with Longer Stays Many sectors of the travel industry offer special deals for reserving trips in advance, and some of the best deals can be found by bundling airfare and

lodging or booking extended week- or month-long stays. These longer vacations can lead to fewer available dates to choose from, but some travel companies offer search filters that help travelers find discounts for staying longer periods of time. Opt for Flexible Booking If you're eager to plan a vacation right away, be sure to review continued on page 12

People Keep Asking

by Kiki Skagen Munshi

Chickens And Cancel Culture The hens have presented a petition to ban “Green Eggs and Ham.” “Whoever heard of green eggs,” clucked Buffy 1. “Yes… er, NO!!!” added Buffy 2. “Alleging, ALLEGING,” Buffy 2 looked around to be sure that the others noticed her mastery of vocabulary, “that we lay GREEN eggs…” she fluffed her feathers and shivered, “is… is…” “Disgusting,” “Fraudulent,” “Perjorative”… clucked in Rhody 3 and two of the Barred Rocks. “Het is verschrikkelijk!” added Barnevelder 2, showing off her maternal language. She knew no one would understand the words but the meaning was clear. Quite clear. “Do re mi,” Buffy 1 waved her wing and, “Ban the book!” all the hens clucked in three part harmony. We should have had our tape recorder with us. “Also,” added Haiduc, sticking his bay nose into the chicken coop, “We horses want Black Beauty and My Friend Flicka” banned. “Why in heaven’s name?” We asked. We should have known better. “Because both made us cry. Black Beauty was treated so badly and when we thought, ‘What if our tails were broken like that?’ it was… too much,” was the reply. “Enough already,” we remonstrated, “books are supposed to make you think and feel. And we suppose you,” (looking at the cats) “have complaints as well.” Two-Fer sniffed and examined a calico paw. “Now that you mention it…” she began then paused, reconsidering. “Actually, it’s all beneath us. The obvious answer is to stop reading.” Scruffy Claws and Goldie nodded in agreement. “Cats,” continued Toofie, “are already so intelligent we don’t need to learn more. It… just…comes to us. Like a mouse. All you have to do is wait long enough.” The horses had the grace to look skeptical but the hens agreed to a feather. Our thought, which we didn’t share, was that we’d take the TV away and stop their Twitter and Facebook accounts. Then we’d see how much they hated books.

campus and pick them up on set dates. These activities create a safe space for students to get away from all the drama in the world. As a young person in the world I see so much suffering on T.V. and it is hard to keep faith in a better tomorrow but I know someway and somehow we will grow back together and rise to become a better community than before. I see hope in our community and the strength we all have through this tough time. The masks we wear signal hope to me as we are making strides to move forward and get past this pandemic. The hidden smiles and laughs remind me that it is good in the world. The masks that cover our noses and mouths don’t need to cover up the emotions we as a community feel. While it is easier to feel down, I take peace in remembering that nothing is permanent. These bad times will pass and good times will take their place. At this time we have been given the opportunity to come together and appreciate the value and importance in each of our lives.

Jr High students on “Twins Day” or is it Triplets

On our property we have two houses. Mike and I live in one house and my son Robert occasionally lives in our spare bedroom. My son Thomas, his room mate and his three children live in the other house. Between us we have seven cats and ten chickens. People often ask me about our animals which we consider pets, so here goes. Mike and I have two house cats. They both came by way of Robert. He got Pudge when he lived with a girlfriend. Pudge has a backward foot, so a friend of Robert’s asked him to take the kitten. If he didn’t take the kitten she would have been drowned because the friend didn’t think anyone else would want her. She was named Bam Bam after the little boy on the Flintstones. She entered a house that already had a much loved cat and children who mistreated her. They had a dog that tried to eat her, so when she was brought to our house in a kennel and told she is yours now, we were okay with that. Mike opened the kennel and tried to coax her out, but initially she wouldn’t have any part of us or our house. We let her make up her mind and eventually this skinny little cat that loped like a ferret raced so easily around the house that we nick named her NASSCAR. She amazed the big black cat we had at the time and he did his best to stay out of her way. It took about five years for her to trust us enough to pet her and another five years before she would sit on our laps and stay in the same room as our grandchildren who now get to pet her. We still aren’t allowed to pick her up and hold her. If we try, she squirms and complains until we release her. We believe that cats name themselves. We renamed Bam Bam, Pretty Girl and she seemed to like that. Once we got her spayed however, she filled out. Even her face got rounder, so we tried some new names and the one she liked best is Princess Pudge. She comes when I call Pudge. Our second house cat is Itty Bitty Kitty. Itty was born in a colony of thirty feral cats. The males killed babies to get the females to come back into heat. Itty was so small when Robert brought her home to us that she could curl up in the palm of my hand and sleep. Now she weighs twelve pounds, not so Itty. We are guessing that Itty’s youngest childhood was very traumatic because wind frightens her, going outside beyond the doormat is unthinkable and when children or strangers come into our house, she runs and hides under our bed. She makes a point of hissing at our eleven year old grand daughter and it’s the only time I ever hear her hiss. Granddaughter thinks that she must be Itty’s nemesis. Maybe so. At my son Thomas’s house, they also have two house cats. One is a beautiful tortoise shell like Pudge and I think she is funny when she isn’t trying to be funny. Often when I am in their house she walks out of wherever she was and suddenly sees me. I can tell her immediate thought is “Oh No! A strange person!” and then she hides. Gracie has been doing this for nearly seven years. Tigger, their other cat is a tabby like Itty. Sometimes Thomas’s room mate Patty picks her up to get better acquainted with me. It hasn’t worked yet. Once Tigger sees me, she scrambles to get out of Patty’s hold and get away from me. When Thomas’s family first got Tigger, I think the plan was that she would be a family cat. However, her very first nap in their house she spent snuggled under Thomas’s full beard and she has claimed him as her own ever since. We share three outside cats. We have two males who like to mark their territory by squirting everything they come near and we have a female who makes a sound that is a combination purr and growl when Mike and I pick he up. She is Pretty Girl. Itty and Pudge won’t allow Pretty Girl into our house, though we humans have given her many chances. We allow her in; they chase her out. All three outside cats are good hunters. They keep the rodent population down and seldom go after birds, which is good because we have a large variety of songbirds that come to our water trays. Chance is our oldest and biggest outside cat. He is mostly white with gray spots in odd places. He has pale green eyes and mostly a soft voice, though my son Thomas tells me that if Chance sleeps with him and decides it’s time to go outside, Chance practically yells at him to get up and open the door. Chance once belonged to a friend of ours. She had to go back east and didn’t know how long she would be gone, so we asked if we could keep him. When she had him, she kept him inside and his long fur got dreadfully mated. Once we let him be an outside cat, he apparently combs his fur through the shrubs and bushes that he walks through because he hasn’t had a matt in his fur in many years. Our other outside boy cat would also love to be an inside cat. He is tall, long, thin, mostly gray and a real lover. Unfortunately, he is also a squirter, so he has to stay outside. We have cozy beds set up for the outside cats where we believe that they will be as safe as possible from most predators. Also, they know how to get to the highest places in our barn where mattresses are stored so they can also be cozy and predator free there. Though we have lost some cats when we couldn’t afford to take them to a vet, I think they have all known that they live in a loving environment. Another time I will write about our chickens. These are my thoughts.

County Announces New Chief Medical Examiner

by Donnie Ryan, County of San Diego Communications Office

The County of San Diego has announced a new Chief Medical Examiner to lead an office with 57 personnel and a budget of $12.1 million responsible for the county’s medicolegal forensic death investigations. Dr. Steven Campman, the former Chief Deputy Medical Examiner who had been filling the director position in an interim capacity for the past four months, has officially accepted the role on a permanent basis. In his new position as director, Campman said he hopes to continue the reputation of the office as being one of the top forensic pathology facilities in the country, as well as providing education and assistance to families of the deceased in a timely and professional manner. “I want to make sure that the department is a valuable contributor to the safety and health of the people of the county by determining the cause and manner of death for all sudden and unexpected deaths in the county – making sure that we document what conditions cause unexpected death in our population,” said Campman, who has worked for San Diego County since 2001. According to Campman, it is important that the medical examiner’s office learn from that information so that the region can guide resources and policies to improve overall health and safety in the future. “Every single investigation is valuable, whether to the decedent’s family, or to attorneys or an insurance company,” said Campman. “But what we can learn from all deaths together is valuable to understanding what is going on in our community.” Campman said a lot of people don’t know that San Diego County has the second largest coroner-medical examiner system in the state of California. “It makes sense when you think about the county’s population being about 1% of the whole nation’s population,” added Campman. Prior to joining the county, Campman worked for the Armed Forces Medical Examiner and served more than 20 years in the U.S. Air Force and Air Force Reserve, retiring as a colonel in 2016. He has conducted more than 5,000 autopsies, served as an autopsy supervisor for more than 800 cases, testified in hundreds of court proceedings, and he has been published more than a dozen times in medical journals and forensic/pathology publications Campman said the San Diego Medical Examiner’s Office faced several challenges last year, not just with COVID-19 but also with fentanyl-related deaths and overall case volume. “We had initial jurisdiction over about 41% of the more than 25,000 deaths registered in San Diego County in 2020 and ended up transporting about 14% of those decedents back to the facility for examination to determine cause of death,” said Campman. “Last year’s case volume was the greatest we’ve ever investigated at 3,853.” In addition to COVID, Campman said the office helps ensure county residents are living safely by providing important data to government officials on societal issues such as the rise in fentanyl-related cases, the opioid epidemic, methamphetamine abuse, suicides, child fatalities and homeless deaths. Campman said this data can then be used to help San Diego County government agencies implement programs to address current trends and to target the most vulnerable residents. “The department is here for the residents of the county,” said Campman. “Every member of the Medical Examiner’s staff is here because they’ve chosen to serve in this capacity and values the unique ways that we can help people.” Campman is a graduate of Loyola Marymount University and 31 years ago Tom Madeyski was named Executive Director at YMCA Camps Marston, Surf and Raintree Ranch. Here he is first day Creighton University School of Medicine and completed his residency on the job as a young director. What a wonderful journey it’s been, at UC Davis Medical Center Dept of Pathology and his fellowship through UC Davis at the Sacramento County Coroner’s Office. much more to be done...

Chef’s Corner Hope For The Best, Prepare For The Worst I live in Texas, in an area that has been hit recently with a massive powergrid failure, freezing temperatures, icy roads, frozen pipes, water pressure woes and boil water notices for the past several days. To say that our state was unprepared for this weather disaster is an understatement. Whether you live in an area that has been hit with pandemic quarantines and lockdowns, work and school closures,

bad weather, power outages, frozen pipes and water cutoffs, or you just need to stock your pantry for the times when you’re unable to shop, here are some ways to create an emergency pantry using canned goods as staples. A typical emergency pantry: * Dried and/or evaporated milk * Pasta, rice, cereals, crackers, bread (can be frozen for months) * Jars of processed cheese spread * Granola bars, Pop Tarts * Canned fruits and vegetables * Canned meats & fish (chicken, ham, tuna) * Canned fruit, vegetable juices * Peanut butter * Canned bean, potato salad * Unsalted nuts * Canned baked beans, chili, hash, spaghetti, soup * Dried fruits * Instant beverages * Baby food and formula (if needed) * Bottled water Additional supplies: * Non-electric can opener * Paper towels, foil * Medications (prescription and nonprescription) that family uses on a regular basis * Paper goods (toilet paper and tissues), napkins, plates, bowls, cups

* Plastic cutlery * Bar soap and rinse-free body wash (if sanitizers or liquid soaps are unavailable) * Food and water for pets * Catering sterno cans, matches and aluminum chafer pan sets (disposable party buffet serving sets can be used for cooking and re-heating food safely) Tips for creating and stocking an emergency pantry: -- Choose foods your family enjoys. Good options include low-sodium canned beans, vegetables, fruit (packed in juice), continued on page 11

This is both a table and a work of art made after 1950. It was estimated at $2,500 to $3,500 at a 2019 auction in California.

Table, or Art?

When is a pile of rocks considered art? An unusual table made of glass and "stone" was offered in an Andrew Jones auction in Los Angeles, with an estimated price of $2,500 to $3,500. It didn't sell, but other related sculptures by the artist,

The Julian News 7

Woods Davy (1949-), have sold from $1,000 to $7,000. He first collected natural stones and turned them into sculptures without altering the shapes. Then he started making "stones" that look like they came from a riverbed using concrete, metal and glass. He positions them in impossible, strangely balanced shapes, which are held together by concealed steel rods and adhesives. This table is 22 inches high with a round glass top 42 inches in diameter. Poking through the glass is a rock with its top 28 inches from the floor. He used old natural forms in a new unbalanced way, which is known as postmodernism. That is the name of an unusual period of art developed in the 1950s that fuses past styles with the look of modern magazines, films and other unexpected sources. But is this just a great table? Or is it art? *** Q: I have a wooden table that is

marked "Larkin Soap Company." Does that mean it was used in the company office or was it made by a soap company? How old is it? A: John D. Larkin (1845-1926) worked for a soap factory in Buffalo in the 1860s. He became a partner and moved with the company to Chicago. He met and married a girl from Buffalo, and they moved back to their hometown in 1875. There he started his own company, John D. Larkin, and sold "Sweet Home" soap. By 1881, he had a full line of related products and gave a free colored picture card with each bar of soap. Cards were not enough, so he started giving better premiums including, handkerchiefs, towels, dishes and even furniture. The desk was the gift with 10 dollars' worth of soap. Soap sales changed by the 1940s, premiums were no longer popular and the company closed in 1962. Your table was made from 1899 to 1904 when the company name matched the

label on your table. *** CURRENT PRICES New Martinsville lamp, flowering vine, opaque mottled pink, chimney shade, brass collar, c. 1904, 8 x 3 inches, $45.

When my daughters were little, they would tell me about some pain they had and ask me to “make it go away.” Whether it was a sore throat, sunburn, or bruised knee, I would often tell them, “the hurting is there for a reason.” It is natural to want to stop hurting but pain is meant to draw our attention to some part of ourselves that is injured or ill. Though we may be able to ease the pain somewhat, we should not expect that it will go away completely until the underlying cause is healed. This makes perfect sense to us if we have a broken leg or appendicitis, but we are less willing to recognize and attend to emotional pain. I am still surprised when someone in the midst of real loss and emotional anguish apologizes to me for crying. We seem more inclined to label depression a defect of character and blame ourselves, than to work at discovering and healing the underlying cause. If we can recognize that our negative feelings may be signaling to us that something in our lives is amiss, we might be less likely to deny or cover up those feelings; we might be more likely to seek and accept the help we need. Too often we turn, instead, to the use of drugs or alcohol. We overeat, over-spend or over-work ourselves to avoid having to face those uncomfortable feelings. There are Christians that make the suffering of depression even worse by telling the depressed person that they wouldn’t be depressed if they had more faith. Those people claim that the right perspective will make them happy or that God hasn’t healed them because they haven’t prayed correctly or enough. I believe that depression is a complicated condition. The source or cause for depression is not the same in everyone and though growing in faith sometimes helps, often the cure comes with a variety of remedies including medical treatments, psychiatric therapies and changes in activity or diet. Being made to feel guilty for not “fixing yourself” is the last thing a depressed person needs. The times in our lives that are depressing or emotionally painful often lead to personal or spiritual growth. Years ago, Rev. Susan Gregg-Schroeder wrote an excellent book, In the Shadow of God’s Wings, in which she tells of her struggle with depression and the gifts she received from that struggle. Greater reliance on God’s care, growth in creativity, more openness to others, acceptance of paradox, increased patience and discovery of hidden aspects of ourselves are some of the gifts we can receive as we intentionally work through our times of suffering. In the midst of depression, it is hard to believe you are loved. It is hard to believe that you are worthy of love. It is hard to see an end to your suffering or believe that anything you do will make it better. When you feel as if you are in a long dark tunnel and are too weary to make it to the dim light in the distance, picture instead that the darkness is from the shadow of God’s wing and allow yourself to rest there in his care. Trust that you can use this time to gather strength and be healed, and that when you are ready, you will live again in the light. Cindy Arntson is ordained

Getting More Movement Throughout The Day (StatePoint) Working or learning from home? It’s more important than ever to ensure you move throughout the day. Doing so will help keep your mind and body healthy and agile. Here are a few tips to move more throughout the day. • Take designated breaks: While your workplace likely afforded you regular opportunities to move around, such as getting up to speak to a colleague or attend a meeting, home workspaces often involve a lot less natural movement. Set a timer for regular intervals. Every time you hear the beep, stretch, move about or take a walk to the kitchen for a glass of water. You’ll be giving your eyes a much needed break too. If possible, consider even building a midday walk or jog around the neighborhood into your schedule. • Track your movement: Wearable tech can help you stay

accountable throughout the day. The timepieces in the G-SHOCK line-up feature step trackers and other cool heart smart health and fitness functions that can help you enhance your workout. In addition to counting steps, the GBD800-1B for men and

the GMDB800-1 for women track calories burned, exercise intensity levels and activity goal achievements when connected to the G-SHOCK app. They also feature daily, weekly and monthly activity graphs so you can set goals and track your progress

over time. Are you a fitness enthusiast who wants to get into the real nitty-gritty of metrics? Check out the G-Shock MOVE GBDH1000. Its heart rate monitor displays your current heart rate, as well as the heart rate zone for five stages of exercise intensity. It also estimates VO2max, a measure of your maximum rate of oxygen consumption, a useful benchmark for cardiorespiratory ability if you’re looking to build endurance. When you get outdoors for an adventure, its GPS functionality and other sensors can help orient you. • Mix it up: There are four types of exercise, according to the National Institutes of Health -- endurance, strength, balance and flexibility -- and each type has different benefits for your body. Varying your workouts can ensure you gain the benefits of all four types. Need some

inspiration? There are plenty of free routines available online, many of which offer modifications to work for different fitness levels. Just search for what you’re looking for and you’re bound to find some great followalong programming to meet your needs. And remember, a workout doesn’t need to be a certain length to be beneficial. If you have only a few minutes to squeeze movement into your day, be sure to take it. Using new tools, it’s easier than ever to stay accountable to your fitness goals, even when you are spending a lot of time at home. *** We need quiet time to examine our lives openly and honestly - spending quiet time alone gives your mind an opportunity to renew itself and create order. — Susan L.

California Commentary

Stopping Fraud Isn’t Really That Hard

by Jon Coupal and Haywood Talcove

As news of the unimaginable scale of California’s unemployment fraud continues to break, it’s necessary to understand why this state has been so particularly vulnerable to fraud, and what can be done, now, to prevent it from continuing. On the low end, we may be looking at $11 billion in fraud (already identified), while on the high end, some estimate the fraud could amount to $31 billion. To put that in perspective, that is 10% of the entire budget for the state of California. Beyond the budget-breaking loss to all California taxpayers, each individual whose identity was stolen will now be facing a tax bill, since unemployment benefits are fully taxable as ordinary income. This is not a victimless crime by any means, and now the onus is on each person whose identity was stolen, many of whom are not even aware that benefits were filed in their name, to prove they were not the recipient. If somebody is unaware and doesn’t disclose the income, they may face an audit. It is well known that the data management systems the EDD uses are built with antiquated programming languages. And because of that, modernizing these systems has become a daunting task that some believe would take considerable time and hundreds of millions of dollars to implement – thereby making any short-term fix impossible. That notion is flawed for two reasons: 1. No cloud-based software and data-management system should cost hundreds of millions of dollars, let alone billions. That may have been true in the 1990s perhaps, but today, so many of the components needed to build a secure platform already exist that it simply won’t cost that amount. Startups that support millions of users, and securely manage their healthcare and financial data, are able to launch and scale – without problems – for investments in the low millions or tens of millions (at most). There simply isn’t any platform that requires hundreds of millions to build – unless it’s a new AI or hardware tool, which is not the case here. 2. Even if overhauling the EDD data-management system and platform did require a monumental capital investment, the identity-verification piece can operate as a stand-alone

solution. To that end, the problem here is identity verification. That’s it. And this is not an insurmountable problem. Digital identity verification is done in the private sector a million times a minute, literally. Imagine if 10% to 30% of bank withdrawals were fraudulent. The bank would be out of business and subject to class-action lawsuits. With a bank, it’s their money and reputation at risk, and they therefore have secure ways of verifying identity with 99.9% accuracy. Banks, insurance companies, ecommerce stores, fintech apps, and any merchant that transacts online have identity-verification solutions – and they don’t build these solutions themselves. There are several private-sector companies that specialize in this service including LexisNexis Risk Solutions. Because they have the capability to verify almost anybody’s identity in milliseconds, when criminals see these tools in place, they go elsewhere. LexisNexis Risk Solutions provides this technology to the top 50 banks in the U.S. and to a dozen unemployment programs – programs that don’t make the news because criminals aren’t able to siphon billions from them. As an example, they have solutions that could have been implemented with two weeks of committed time and resources. Institutions that we all interact with every day utilize their technology, and the setup did not take years and hundreds of millions of dollars. The sad reality is that a minimal investment of time and resources could have prevented California’s unemployment catastrophe. It’s not too late to change course. The state needs to look to entities that do identity verification successfully if they are to find a pathway out, and the people running government agencies that dispense billions of dollars, or tens of billions, should look to experts from the private sector who have experience successfully managing billions of dollars. California taxpayers deserve nothing less.

Land Management continued from page 1 ®

Dr. Wolfgang Feist and family pose in front of the world's first passive solar house, constructed in 1991 in Darmstadt, Germany. Credit: International Passive House Association. Dear EarthTalk: What is a so-called “passive solar” house and can I retrofit my existing house accordingly? -- Bill C., Raleigh, NC A passive solar house is typically designed from scratch factoring in several considerations to boost the structure’s ability to naturally keep the interior living spaces a comfortable air temperature without using conventional emissions-spewing HVAC appliances. The concept hinges on having lots of insulation, no air leaks, and large, strategically-oriented south-facing windows that “collect” heat energy (in the form of sunlight) during the day and store it in “thermal mass” (concrete slabs, brick walls, tile floors or other building materials with heat retention capacity). This stored solar energy is then naturally distributed throughout the interior space by natural convection caused by ventilation and the dynamics of colder and warmer air reacting differently to gravity. While the concept has been kicking around since at least the 1950s, it wasn’t until 1991 that Dr. Wolfgang Feist, an Austrian physicist and subsequent founder of the Passivhaus Institut, turned the dream into a reality with the design and construction of the world’s first passive solar house in Darmstadt, Germany. This three-story home was designed from the ground up with thick walls and copious amounts of efficient insulation, and no holes large or small where hot air could escape. The Feist house was also designed to be free of any potential “thermal bridges,” where heat could travel through walls to get outside, unlike conventional homes which are framed with wood 2x4s and 4x4s with insulation laid or sprayed in between. Conventional framing typically comprises about 25 percent of the interior walls’ surface area. Unlike the insulation around it, the framing sections provide zero insulation value and therefore act as thermal bridges whereby hot air can escape. Passive houses, on the other hand, are designed with solid slabs or with denser framing materials to cut off this insidious form of heat loss. Siting is also a major design consideration for any passive solar house. Picking a spot that can harvest lots of sunlight (via large southfacing triple-glazed windows) and also take advantage of neighboring shade (like large trees and buildings) to cool the structure off in the heat of summer is also key. Indeed, it is of paramount importance to the building’s success in maintaining consistently comfortable indoor air temperatures without electricity or gas/oil no matter the weather outside. Another important aspect of the passive solar design is the incorporation of some kind of heat recovery ventilation (HRV) system that can let fresh air into the building without letting any of the heat out. Given all of the design, siting and construction factors involved, it’s usually not practical to convert a pre-existing conventional house into a passive solar one. But that said, there’s no reason not to upgrade what you can at home to at least take advantage of increased efficiencies where it’s easy and get as close to passive solar as possible. Upgrade your insulation. Plug holes and other air leaks. Put weather-stripping around doors and windows. The list goes on... While you might not be able to do any and everything to make your house greener, remember that a walk of 100 miles starts with one step.

recovery of the land. This piece of land was in that recovery stage. As we are seeing in Julian, and throughout California, there are less frequent occurrences of rain which are creating drier conditions. Is the answer to this problem to take excessive amounts of plants out of an ecosystem? These plants are responsible for balancing the moisture and nutrient levels in the soil as well as helping our atmosphere. To what limits do we choose to manage the natural environment especially areas that have already burned and are struggling to rejuvenate? Are there limits to us, as citizens of our local and global community, in making decisions to rake the forest, and to what degree is responsible when clearing. We are very grateful for our local, state, and federal fire crews who save our lives and fight for our homes. We are simply concerned as to whether or not the Cal Fire crew running the masticator that executed this project took into consideration the future of our community, with respect to our natural environment. We live in Julian because we love the mountains, that includes the beauty of nature around us; and we need to make land management decisions that respect both our environment and our homeowners.

Educating Educators Digitally School personnel can now sign up for a new series of six nocost digital professional learning courses empowering educators with new strategies to support students’ success in school and beyond. The professional learning series for educators presents schools, particularly those from under-resourced communities, the access and materials needed to transform teaching during COVID-19 and beyond.  The first in the planned series of six professional learning modules supports teachers by focusing on student-centered approaches to foster innovative, relevant, and engaging STEM instruction. The module begins to redefine STEM by highlighting interdisciplinary learning, focusing on design principles and real-world connections, and rethinking skill building. Other modules focus on helping educators develop student-centered approaches, creating meaningful engagement

Educators can learn great ways to teach STEM subjects on line at no cost. strategies, promoting inquirybased learning, and developing students’ critical thinking skills. Users can access lessons that are digestible and immediately actionable, with each module designed so educators can put it into practice immediately. Lesson guides and supports let the series walk alongside the teacher and ensure fidelity of implementation. The digital modules are designed as examples of how to bring the real world into the classroom. As teachers work to make learning relevant, it’s important to hold up these models as exemplars of the importance of their work.  Great teachers are always looking for ways to ground themselves in frameworks that let them reflect and improve their practice. All of the modules in the TGR EDU: Explore initiative, created in partnership

with Discovery Education, are grounded in the use of inquiry as a way to engage and have students own their learning.

5 Tips To Get Your Garage Organized – And Keep It That Way

(StatePoint) Is your garage in disarray? While you dream of a perfectly organized workbench or garage, your reality probably looks more like a sea of random toys, boxes and exercise equipment. Every do-it-yourselfer knows a clean, organized garage is the key to efficient project planning and repairs around the home. As we head into warmer months, set aside the time to take charge of the space and finally create a sense of tidiness that will last year-round. Follow these five tips to tame the mess and get your garage back in shape: 1. Invest in shelving that accommodates clear storage bins. When it comes to organizing and storing the assortment of cords, car care items, paint supplies and kid’s toys littering your garage, nothing does the job better than clear storage

bins. Not only can you categorize items by project or activity type, you can also easily stack them to save space without sacrificing the ability to easily find what you need, when you need it. Invest in taller, wider shelving for the perimeter of the garage to accommodate your chosen bins. 2. Fix or dispose of anything broken or past its prime. There’s nothing worse than scrambling to find a specific tool or product in an urgent situation, only to realize it’s broken, damaged or dried out. As you organize, pay attention to textures, consistencies and expiration dates. Toss and replace any items that have seen better days. For broken tools that seem salvageable, like cracked hoses or broken handles, reach for a professional grade, heavyduty duct tape like T-Rex Tape to tackle the repair. 3. Utilize ceiling and wall space with hanging storage.

Chef’s Corner

activities, tasks and repairs together, giving each category a “home.” In addition to helping keep things organized in dedicated spaces, hanging frequently used tools and supplies on hooks or pegboard can make it easier to quickly scan the garage and find exactly what you need. Use your mounting tape to safely and securely create a space to store and display all your go-to items. Interested in more solutions for all your home and DIY needs? Visit www.trextape.com for a wide variety project and repair ideas. Whether you’re working on your car or tackling a weekend DIY project, having all your tools and supplies in order will make all the difference.

From bicycles and skis to rakes and shovels, some equipment is better off stored up and out of your way. Install hanging racks or shelving above the area where you park your vehicles to store larger, heavier equipment, and use a double-sided mounting tape to attach hooks along the sides of your garage for lighterweight items. 4. Stock up on the essentials so you can make repairs on the fly. While it’s great to have a wide assortment of tools and supplies, for many projects and repairs you really just need the basics – think max-strength waterproof tape, bungee cords, a hammer, nails and similar essentials. Use these items as the foundation of your garage workstation and stock up on extras to keep on-hand for emergencies, camping and other on-the-go uses. 5. Give everything a home. Aim to group supplies for similar

Wednesday - March 10, 2021

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Whatever decisions you're faced with this week, rely on your strong Aries instincts, and base them on your honest feelings, not necessarily on what others might expect you to do. TAURUS (April 30 to May 20) Your sensitive Taurean spirit is pained by what you feel is an unwarranted attack by a miffed colleague. But your sensible self should see it as proof that you must be doing something right. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) More fine-tuning might be in order before you can be absolutely certain that you're on the right track. Someone close to you might offer to help. The weekend favors family get-togethers. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) The week continues to be a balancing act 'twixt dreaming and doing. But by week's end, you should have a much better idea of what you actually plan to do and how you plan to do it. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Changing your plans can be risky, but it can also be a necessary move. Recheck your facts before you act. Tense encounters should ease by midweek, and all should be well by the weekend. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) You might still be trying to adjust to recent changes. But things should improve considerably as you get to see some positive results. An uneasy personal matter calls for more patience. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) Congratulations. Your good

intentions are finally recognized, and long-overdue appreciation should follow. Keep working toward improvements wherever you think they're necessary. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 2) Try to look at your options without prejudging any of them. Learn the facts, and then make your assessments. Spend the weekend enjoying films, plays and musical events. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Someone might want to take advantage of the Sagittarian's sense of fair play. But before you ride off to right what you've been told is a wrong, be sure of your facts. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) You might be surprised to learn that not everyone agrees with your ideas. But this can prove to be a good thing. Go over them and see where improvements can be made. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) After taking advice on a number of matters in recent months, expect to be called on to return the gesture. And, by the way, you might be surprised at who makes the request. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Reassure everyone concerned that a change of mind isn't necessarily a change of heart. You might still want to pursue a specific goal, but feel a need to change the way you'll get there. BORN THIS WEEK: You are able to make room in your heart for others, and that makes you a very special person in their lives.

Future Vacation

and understand cancellation policies for your preferred accommodations, airline and activities. Many have changed their policies due to the pandemic, so be sure to know how long you have to cancel or change dates without incurring additional fees or penalties. For example, when booking a vacation rental through Vrbo, where hosts set their cancellation terms, you can use the "free cancellation" filter to search for properties with flexible policies, some of which allow cancellations up to 14 days before check-in for a full refund. Start Saving Now While it may not be practical for everyone to save money amid uncertain times, setting even a small amount aside for your vacation can be worthwhile. Consider setting up a dedicated travel savings account or directing the change from each transaction made with your debit card to a separate account. Being able to periodically check the balance of the account can also help increase excitement for your upcoming adventure.

Ready, Set…Refresh! Quick Tips To Revitalize Your Most-Used Spaces (StatePoint) Have the cold winter months left your home feeling a bit dirty, drab or disorganized? Are you feeling the urge to purge? Then it’s time for some spring cleaning. With a few simple tips and tricks, your home—and mood—can be refreshed and revitalized. For the biggest payoff for your efforts, focus spring cleaning in the areas of the home that are used most: the kitchen and bathroom. Clear kitchen clutter: According to research from the Mayo Clinic, de-cluttering can have a significant positive effect on your mental health and well-being. To start your refresh, toss anything that’s expired or no longer being used. Use a wall-mount spice rack to free up shelf space and keep ingredients within easy reach. Add sanity to the silverware drawer by giving all gadgets their own spaces with Spectrum HEXA In-Drawer Organizers. HEXA organizers feature a unique, six-sided honeycomb base design that offers a sturdy foundation while allowing crumbs to fall through its base away from clean utensils. Simply, “lift and sift” to clean drawers. Labels & liners: Add a new level of organization and personalization to cabinets, drawers and even wire racks with shelf liners. Available in a variety of colors and patterns, they offer a smooth top and grip bottom for easy sliding of items. Plus, the smooth surface catches messes and spills, making clean-up a breeze. Next, create custom labels for organizer bins with chalkboard or dry erase adhesives from Duck brand. For wire racks, add shelf liner to the bottom to hold items in place. Get savvy at the sink: Next, move to one of the germiest areas of the kitchen: the sink. To keep this area neat and clean, add an organizer (such as Spectrum HEXA Sink Organizer, which has a built-in soap pump) to keep all cleaning essentials—sponges and brushes—upright and dry and help resist the growth of bacteria. Excess water is captured in the base, which can be easily removed and wiped clean. Finally, place a raised mat in your sink basin to encourage air and water flow for faster drying, and to provide extra cushion for fragile glassware. Banish bathroom battles: From towels to toiletries, bathrooms collect a lot of “stuff.” Keep the daily-use items and purge the rest. If you have limited shower space, use a suction shower basket or shower caddy to hold shampoo and soaps. Add an over-the-tank toilet paper holder to store extra bath tissue and keep it out of the way. Just like the kitchen, utilize small baskets or HEXA in-drawer organizers to keep everything from makeup to medicine easily accessible and in the right place. Conquer cluttery cords: Conquer cords and countertop clutter by utilizing vertical spaces. Add shelves to walls to hold towels or smaller items, and add over-the-cabinet accessory baskets to the insides of cabinet doors. These easy-to-install organizers keep items like your blow dryer, straightener and curling iron out of sight, but within arm’s reach, for a faster morning routine. For more unique organizational products, visit www. spectrumdiversified.com and follow the conversation at #LiveLifeOrganized. Soon, with a bit of cleaning and organization focused in key areas of your home, you’ll be feeling refreshed and revitalized this spring.
