County May Move To Red Tier - March 17

Back Country Covid-19 Positive Tests

March 17, 2021

Given that the state has met a mark of vaccinating 2 million people in the communities hardest hit by COVID-19, it has revised its tier system, and San Diego County is expected to move to the Red Tier for activities March 17. The change in tiers will allow indoor operations to resume, at limited capacity and with modifications, at restaurants, gyms, movie theaters and other establishments. San Diego and 11 other counties are moving to the less restrictive Red Tier, which now requires a case rate of four to 10 COVID-19 cases per 100,000 residents. San Diego County’s state-calculated, adjusted case rate is currently 8.8 cases per 100,000 residents. “This is great news for our region. San Diegans have done a good job following the public health guidance and that has driven our case rate down in recent weeks,” said Wilma Wooten, M.D., M.P.H., County public health officer. “Our vaccination efforts have also helped to slow the spread of COVID-19. As more people get vaccinated, the number of cases should continue to decrease.” The County must remain in the Red Tier and post two consecutive weeks of data in the in the Orange Tier before moving to the less restrictive level which would ease more restrictions. Currently, the testing positivity percentage is 3.3%, placing the County in Tier 3 or the Orange Tier. The County’s health equity metric, which looks at the testing positivity for areas with the lowest healthy conditions, is 4.5% and is also in the Orange Tier or Tier 3. These metrics are also expected to decrease when the state announces tier assignments March 16. While two of the three metrics qualify the County for the Orange Tier or Tier 3, the state assigns counties to the most restrictive tier. When the state administers 4 million doses in the vaccine equity quartile, tier assignments will be revised once again. San Diegans With Chronic Illnesses Eligible for Vaccine Monday Starting March 15, people between 16 and 64 years of age who have a severe health condition will be able to get vaccinated against COVID-19, the County Health and Human Services Agency announced today. The vaccine is being made available to people in this category because they are deemed to be a high risk of severe illness from COVID-19 due to their pre-existing medical condition. “People with chronic health conditions should get vaccinated as soon as possible,” Wooten said. “All the vaccines currently available are 100% effective at preventing severe illness from COVID-19.” San Diegans with a developmental or other severe high-risk disability will also be eligible to get the COVID-19 vaccine. People in Phase 1 are encouraged to get vaccinated by their health care provider. San Diegans without a doctor should contact 2-11 to be connected to a provider or make an appointment at www. San Diegans who have a health care provider don’t have show proof of an existing medical condition because their medical history is already on file and doctors should be inviting their patients to get vaccinated when it’s their turn. People without a health care provider will be asked to sign a self-attestation form indicating they have one of the chronic conditions listed. Breweries Without Food Can Open Beginning March 13, breweries, wineries and distilleries that do not serve meals may open outdoors only with modifications. Patrons visiting these establishments must have reservations and must observe a 90-minute time limit. Also, service for on-site consumption must end by 8 p.m. The updated guidance does not apply to breweries, wineries and distilleries that provide meals. Vaccination Progress: More than 1.27 million COVID-19 vaccine doses have been delivered to the region, and over 1.18 million have been logged as administered. This number includes both County residents and those who work in San Diego County. Of those vaccinated to date, nearly 400,000 County residents, or 14.8% of San Diegans 16 and older, are fully immunized. Overall, nearly 688,000 County residents have received at least one shot of the two-dose vaccine. That’s 25.6% of those eligible. Those receiving the one-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine are being added to the total of fully vaccinated San Diegans. 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. For details on groups currently eligible and vaccination opportunities, visit www.vaccinationsuperstation. com. Community Setting Outbreaks: Three new community outbreaks were confirmed March 11: one in a business setting, one in a TK-12th grade school setting and one in a restaurant/bar setting. In the past seven days (March 5 through March 11), 12 community outbreaks were confirmed. The number of community outbreaks remains above the trigger of seven or more in seven days. A community setting outbreak is defined as three or more COVID-19 cases in a setting and in people of different households over the past 14 days. Testing: 12,907 tests were reported to the County on March 11, and the percentage of new positive cases was 3%. The 14-day rolling average percentage of positive cases is 2.9%. Target is less than 8.0%. The 7-day, daily average of tests is 12,857. Cases, Hospitalizations and ICU Admissions: 362 COVID-19 cases were reported to the County on March 11. The region’s total is now 264,889. 13,327 or 5% of all cases have required hospitalization. 1,621 or 0.6% of all cases and 12.2% of hospitalized cases had to be admitted to an intensive care unit.

Scammers Are Already Targeting The Next Round Of Coronavirus Relief Checks

by Tonya Riley with Aaron Schaffer (Washinton Post)

Cybercriminals are flooding potential victims with scams using the pending coronavirus relief plan as bait. That's according to a new report by researchers at cybersecurity firm Proofpoint. Stimulus checks outlined in the bill, which is expected to be passed by the House as early as today, have not been sent out yet. But already last week researchers discovered a campaign of thousands of emails that sought to trick Americans into filling out a phony form to “apply” for American Rescue Plan checks from the Internal Revenue Service. The emails encouraged recipients to download an Excel sheet which, once downloaded, launched a malicious software known as a Dridex that steals personal banking information and other login credentials. In reality, the payments are calculated and sent by the government automatically based on your taxes. This is just the latest example of how the global coronavirus crisis has spawned more scams than any other event in the past decade. “Pandemic-themed attacks remain ever-present, and we’ve never observed such a convergence around a single social engineering lure for such an extended time,” Sherrod DeGrippo, senior director for threat research and detection at Proofpoint, writes in the report. “These campaigns transcend borders, languages, and industries.” The Proofpoint report also notes that hackers are playing on uncertainties around the pandemic and vaccine distribution to try to steal tax forms including W2, W9 and 1099 from businesses. Other emails that researchers found contained malicious software purported to be from Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the, Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), the World Health Organization (WHO), and delivery company DHL. Researchers expect to see pandemic-themed financial scams escalate through the spring. Hackers regularly impersonate the IRS around tax season. The ongoing pandemic has offered hackers an endless flow of new ways to manipulate potential victims. "As we get into tax season, plus the stimulus on top of that, I just see that there's going to be an epidemic of these as we get closer to April 15th,” says Ryan Kalember, executive vice president of cybersecurity strategy at Proofpoint. Campaigns such as those tracked by Proofpoint often serve as a jumping-off point for even more damaging cybercrime. The hackers behind the crimes often serve as initial brokers, selling the stolen credentials to other hackers to use. In some cases, hackers use the initial attacks to plant malware such as ransomware to reap a payday later on. The scams could have lasting continued on page 12

Pick Your Daffodils You Make The Show February seems to sneak in and warm us up in Julian. Apricots are showing, plums are exploded with blossoms and you may have noticed your daffodils are jumping up. Julian’s Daffodil Show will be this Saturday March 20 and Sunday March 21, Noon to Five pm.. We need you to search through your yard for the best blooms: no dirt (use a soft brush to remove), no tears, long stems and proud balanced daffodils.. If you want entry cards early to fill out prior to Friday, March 19, please pick them up at the Library. Sharpies can mark stems with their daffodil names, if you know them. Donations of all other blooms are gladly accepted to raise funds for the show. The buds need to have some color on the tips if you expect them to open. Place them in a vase of water in your refrigerator or a cool dark place. The day or two before March 19, bring them to the light; a windowsill or bright table. Since the nation has noticed this small town show, we all need to bring your best two to thirty stems

Women’s Club Easter Basket Project

Like a breath of fresh air, Gina Helms and her daughter Brooke Gonzalez have brought renewed energy to the 95 year old Julian Woman’s Club. Brooke, 15, is now the youngest member of the club. Together this Dynamic Duo created a Kindness Campaign that is resonating with club members and the community. Last winter Brooke collected mittens and socks that were distributed to local elementary school children. In January Brooke and her mother prepared Daily Pick Me Up Boxes with positive quotes written on hearts. All club members had an opportunity to select a box and also to prepare hearts and quotes for others. It was great encouragement during the month. Now, these ladies have an Easter Basket project. Selected deserving children will receive specially prepared baskets made from donated items and funds with which to purchase more. Friends, family, and club members donate to help Brooke and Gina. Funds have allowed the purchase of a Bunny costume for Easter photos for all local children. This is just the beginning for these ladies who are determined to bring kindness to Julian. They are unstoppable. Julian Woman’s Club is not just a group of elderly women! Members are all ages, and we invite mothers and daughters to join (even men and boys). All persons are invited to get involved and get onboard with our Dynamic Duo. Info:

In these times of global climate change our natural world needs our help more than ever. Consider our propensity for destruction upon the very landscape that many of us escaped the city to live within. If we continue in our current trajectory many of the life forms we’ve come to love will fall by the wayside and we will not live among those species we so cherish. In this context I speak of species like wild lilacs, manzanita and toyon. Due to the mastication of these plant communities in the name of “defensible space” , we could soon have very little diversity in our plant world; as the absence of some species effects a great many of other species who live amongst them. One aspect of plant community health is scrubland fire succession in the recovery phase of a landscape that creates shade for many of the conifer seedlings in our ecology here in Julian. We do love our conifers, such as pines and cedars. An ecosystem involves interconnections among species. If you are interested in learning more about why these “fire break” areas should not be mowed down please visit sites like the California Chaparral Institute. You may find that they are not the fire demons you once thought they were! Kathleen Beck Julian

Women In Crisis: Will The Violence Ever Stop?

This past week has been a groundbreaking week for women the world over. On Saturday, March 8th we celebrated International Women’s Day and the accomplishments of women worldwide. And then last Sunday, March 9th the Duchess of Sussex did something I never thought I would see, ever, on a national TV program. She talked about suicidal ideation and the feeling that she wanted to die and might even act on it if left alone. It was a profound moment for me not only as a woman but also as a psychiatrist and mental health activist. I felt a tremendous sense of empathy and compassion for her and her mental anguish but also felt a freedom, a lift from her revolution against the taboo. One of the most beautiful women in the world admitted publicly that appearances are never what they seem. As a wounded healer, this is something I have always had to carry--the heavy burden of the secrets of others behind closed doors. But Meghan Markle freed me from it by speaking truth to power. Only truth will set us free. If you are having suicidal thoughts, talk to someone about it. Don’t let it stay a secret. You can call for help here. Just two days later reporters began telling us of the “sarong revolution” in Myanmar. Women are rising up together against oppressive political violence and the patriarchy by hanging clothing and sanitary pads in the street, scaring superstitious policemen and military soldiers. Young girls are giving their lives for the cause of democracy and nonviolent resistance. These brave women are showing the world the awesome power of female solidarity and how to win nonviolently. May we all be as strong as them when the time comes. And yet, at the exact same time and on the exact same day, the World Health Organization released its report on violence against women. An alarming 30 percent of women worldwide have experienced physical or intimate partner violence in their lifetime. Of all murders of women, 38 percent are committed by intimate partners, and six percent of women report being sexually assaulted by someone other than a partner. Not only are these numbers staggering but they have profound implication for the long term mental health of survivors. Over the years, I have accumulated a lifetime of secondary trauma from the stories I have heard from women in my practice. I have heard stories of rape, incest, psychological and physical abuse. I have helped women to leave their violent partners, praying in the night that they make it until morning. I have helped adult women to confront the internalized abuser within, to tell their secrets--first to me, then to trusted others on the path to healing which is now more needed than ever. This week, I took my own personal step on the path to healing the violence wound--by helping those who need it most--the indigenous continued on page 12

Seeing Your Doctor During The Pandemic

"It's generally wise to limit inperson interactions to safeguard against contracting COVID-19, but forgoing care for an ongoing health condition, especially a chronic illness, may put patients at unnecessary risk," said Dr. Oren Cohen, chief medical officer, Labcorp Drug Development. "Our goal in health care is to keep patients safe and healthy. Health care providers have established robust protocols to minimize the risk of COVID-19 transmission. Calling ahead to understand the process for an office visit or test is a good idea. In some circumstances, telehealth visits may be a good option as well." Keep Up with Your Medicines In addition to seeing your doctor, it's also important to take your medications as prescribed. Stay in touch with your pharmacy and health care provider team to ensure prescriptions stay current. Also avoid waiting until the last minute to request a refill so you don't encounter delays or potentially miss doses. Seeing your doctor and taking your medications are very important to your ongoing care. It's also a time to talk with your health care provider for more advice on how to get the care

12. What’s a bad habit you have?

(Family Features) If you've been putting off a visit to your doctor during COVID-19, you're not alone. Most adults (57%) agree the pandemic has changed how they feel about going to a health care provider's office, according to a survey of 1,000 adults in October 2020 from a national alliance of health care experts working to stop medical distancing, which was commissioned and sponsored by AbbVie. The survey showed that in adults with chronic diseases, cancellations of their visits to the doctor amounted to 61%. Of those that had canceled appointments, 18% did not reschedule them. Some of the reasons included concerns about contracting COVID-19, not wanting to go into the hospital if not necessary and believing they can hold off on care until the end of the pandemic. Keeping up with regular appointments is an important part of effective ongoing health care, especially for those managing chronic conditions. Continuous, clear and open communication with your health care providers is essential to getting the care you need. See Your Doctor Most important to know during this time are the measures your health care providers are taking, such as wearing personal protective equipment, practicing physical distancing and increasing cleaning and sanitization procedures. Find out what precautions health care providers are taking in your area. Also, see if your health care team offers telehealth appointments as an alternative. Virtual visits put you face-to-face with your doctor from the comfort and safety of your own home.

you need during the pandemic and beyond. Take Control of Your Health Care During COVID-19 Health care providers are taking extra precautions and implementing additional protocols to conduct in-person visits in the safest way possible. Here's what you can do to take care of your health: * Make and keep your appointments. * Reschedule any canceled appointments. * If you decide to see the doctor in-person, be sure to call your doctor and ask what health precautions are being taken. * Consider a telehealth visit as an alternative to going to an inperson visit. * Take your medications as prescribed. * Check the expirations of your medications and ask for refills with plenty of time to have them filled. * Ask your health care provider for additional ways to protect your health during this pandemic.

5 Ways to Go Beyond Saying ‘Thank You’ to Military Service Members

How The USO Serves Our Military AQnd Their Families (StatePoint) Since its founding in 1941, the USO has provided generations of service members and their families with crucial support. During that 80-year history, the world, the military and the needs of service members changed. The USO also adapted, adjusting and expanding its operations to help boost their morale and keep them connected to home. USO Centers - have provided service members with a home away from home since World War II. Initially housed in churches, stores and other community centers across the U.S., the organization’s network of locations soon extended overseas, with centers popping up in Southeast Asia, the Middle East and Europe as military engagements shifted. USO airport lounges were added in the 1990s to give troops a place to relax during long travels, while Mobile USOs have brought support services to disaster sites and U.S. communities without a brick-and-mortar center since 2016. Entertainment - It was during World War II that the USO created and established its legacy of entertainment through USO Camp Shows. Since then, the USO has teamed up with hundreds of movie and TV stars, comedians and professional athletes to produce concerts, meet-and-greets and other interactive events for service members. Many of these events are now offered online through the recently launched USO Military Virtual Programming to accommodate new health and safety measures. Staying Connected to Home - Evolving modes of communication have also changed the way the USO helps service members connect with loved ones. Today’s USO centers are outfitted with phone rooms, computers and free Wi-Fi. Many also have dedicated video gaming spaces where service members can play with their spouses and children. New USO programs continue to focus on keeping families connected. The Bob Hope Legacy Reading Program, for example, allows service members to record themselves reading a bedtime story to their child and have that recording, as well as the book, shipped back home. Support for Military Families Over the past 20 years, the USO has added more entertainment and support programs for military spouses and children. USO Coffee Connections, for example, help military spouses build personal and professional networks. The USO Special Delivery program provides both military spouses and service members with free baby showers. In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, the USO hosted more virtual and socially distant programs for the military community, ranging from drive-thru high school graduation ceremonies to virtual baking classes. Transitions to Civilian Life - The USO has also launched support for service members and military spouses as they assimilate into their civilian communities after their military career. The USO Pathfinder Transition Program creates a customized action plan for each participant, assisting in everything from education to financial readiness to career advice. Visit to learn more about the organization’s evolution and how it supports today’s military. “The sacrifice of service members and their families requires that we rise to the challenge as we have done for the past 80 years and will continue to do for years to come,” says J.D. Crouch II, CEO and president of the USO.

(StatePoint) How do you thank someone who’s willing to risk their life for yours? When it comes to military service members and their families, advocates say there are many avenues for giving back meaningfully. As part of its “Give More Than Thanks” campaign celebrating 80 years of being the “Force Behind the Forces,” the United Service Organizations (USO) is inviting Americans to take actions that can make a tangible difference in the lives of service members. Here are five ideas to get you started: 1. Offer Skills or Services. Many service members face difficulties translating the skills and experience they acquired in the military to civilian jobs. Others struggle to adjust to the norms of the civilian workforce. Meanwhile, military spouses face professional obstacles throughout their service member’s career due to constant moves and deployments. Consider offering career advice or volunteering to guest lecture via military transition programs, such as the USO Pathfinder Transition Program, which equips service members and military spouses with tools needed to tackle the civilian job market. If you own a business or are a leader in a company, advocate for hiring qualified veterans. By offering practical support, you’re not only thanking service members, you’re helping build an inclusive community that bridges the civilian-military divide. 2. Send a Care Package. Care packages filled with treats and reminders of home let troops know that friends, family and the American people are thinking of them, even from thousands of miles away. However, the process of sending military care packages can be complicated. One easy way to do so is through USO Wishbook, where you can select a symbolic gift from a catalog to be sent to service members. 3. Support Military Spouses. Deployments are challenging for both service members and their spouses. Reach out to a military spouse whose service member is deployed and offer to cook continued on page 5

Back Country Happenings

Using Play To Combat Your Child’s Stress And Loneliness (StatePoint) With the pandemic continuing to disrupt routines, you may have growing anxieties about how the extended crisis will affect your child’s social and emotional health long-term. A new survey conducted by OnePoll on behalf of the The Genius of Play -- a national movement to educate parents and caregivers about play’s vital role in child development -- examined the concerns of parents with children ages 2–18. Here are some of the findings, along with tips to counteract the negative effects of quarantine: Social Skills Seven in 10 parents believe spending a year in quarantine will have a lasting effect on their child’s growth and development. Among those parents, the top concern is that it’ll be more difficult for their child to connect with people in-person in the future (52%). Tied for second and third were concerns that it’ll be more difficult for their child to play (44%) or make friends in the future (also 44%) after being separated from their peers. “There are numerous playtime activities that boost communication and social skills, which can be adapted to this new reality,” says Anna Yudina, senior director of marketing initiatives at The Toy Association. During a period when travel is limited, Yudina suggests playing “International Menu” to help kids learn about the world. To play, pick a location and discuss its local dishes. Then, give kids Play-Doh to create them. Have kids play restaurant with their new DIY meals. Using action figures and toys, try other roleplay games that encourage interaction and communication

skills that kids may not have practiced for awhile. Classic board games with questions and answers – like Guess Who? – can also help kids build and retain their social skills. Loneliness Four in 10 parents worry about their child’s mental health as a result of the pandemic. What’s more, 72% of respondents say they believe that during 2020 their child was lonelier than ever before. That’s a feeling extending to parents themselves -- 58% said they, too, were lonelier than ever. “Whether building a furniture fort, solving a puzzle or using a science kit, collaborative play gives us an opportunity to connect and combat loneliness while keeping children happy

and entertained,” says Yudina. “Playing together also offers parents insights into their child’s world and what may be causing their stress and anxiety.” An arts and crafts session presents an opportunity to connect with friends and family who your child may be missing. Break out the paper, stickers, markers, and safety scissors to create cards to send to loved ones. Be sure to organize virtual playdates, too. The latest apps are making it easier for kids to read, draw, act out plays, and watch movies virtually with friends. The Bright Side Despite its difficulties, parents indicated that this period has had silver linings. When asked

what positives have resulted from spending more time at home over the past year, the top response was being able to spend more time playing with their child (46%). To get inspired to fill in all those additional hours with play, visit, a great online resource for parents offering tons of play ideas. “The long-lasting effects of the pandemic are yet to be determined,” says Yudina. “In the meantime, all this extended time at home is an excellent opportunity for families to connect and play, keeping both kids and adults social and active. *** 'Age' is the acceptance of a term of years. But maturity is the glory of years. — Martha Graham

• On March 20, 1861, President Abraham Lincoln's sons, Willie and Tad, are diagnosed with the measles. The boys recovered, but in 1862 Willie contracted typhoid fever and died. Tad died at age 18 in 1871. Of Lincoln's four boys, only the first child, Robert, lived to an advanced age; he passed away at age 82 in 1926. • On March 18, 1911, Irving Berlin copyrights the biggest pop song of the early 20th century, "Alexander's Ragtime Band." The song was easier to play than Joplin's "The Entertainer," which encouraged sheet music sales. Those topped 1.5 million copies in the first 18 months after publication. * On March 16, 1926, Robert Goddard successfully launches the world's first liquid-fueled rocket at Auburn, Massachusetts. The 10-foot-tall rocket traveled for 2.5 seconds at a speed of about 60 mph, reaching an altitude of 41 feet and landing 184 feet away. * On March 19, 1953, for the first time, audiences are able to watch from their living rooms as the movie world's most prestigious honors, the Academy Awards, are given out at the RKO Pantages Theatre in Hollywood, California. * On March 15, 1968, construction starts on the north tunnel of the Eisenhower/ Johnson Memorial Tunnel on I-70 in Colorado west of Denver.

How To Prepare For An Unusual Tax Season (StatePoint) A year as unusual and challenging as 2020 means there may be some additional factors that can impact your tax return, from stimulus payments, potential job changes and unemployment benefits, to virtual work transitions and more. “2020 was full of challenges, changes and plenty of uncertainty. While we’re optimistic for the year ahead, it’s important for Americans to understand how major life events, such as changes in employment or residence, can impact tax filing this year,” says Chad Prashad, CEO of World Acceptance Corporation, parent company of World Finance. Having prepared approximately 84,000 returns last year, World Finance is offering tips to lessen tax season headaches this year, while helping you maximize the value and timeliness of your tax return. • Make a plan and start early. Start by identifying how you’re going to file your taxes, such as through an online program or with the help of a professional expert. Gather all tax forms, such as W-2s from your employer or a 1099 form if you’re self-employed, relevant expense receipts, as well as statements from banks or other financial institutions. The quicker you get your taxes filed, the faster you’ll receive your return. Visit for the latest tax information. • Check for tax credits and deductions. Due to the pandemic, you may have had to make major lifestyle changes, some of which could result in a tax credit or deduction that reduces your amount owed. The cost of setting up a home office, the purchase of a vehicle in lieu of taking public transportation and childcare expenses are all examples of possible tax credits or deductions. Check out credits-deductions-for-individuals for a list of other deductions and possible credits. • Consider additional COVID-19 impacts. If you lost a job due to COVID-19 and received unemployment benefits, remember that income is taxable. The CARES Act also created provisions that could benefit your tax return, including allowing above-the-line deductions for donations to charity, waiving the penalty for early withdrawal from retirement accounts and more. Visit for more information. • Work with a tax preparation service. Feeling overwhelmed? Working with a reputable tax preparation service partner can help you identify any additional deductions available and can add to your return. Some partners like World Finance even offer an interest and fee-free tax advance loan based on the anticipated value of your tax return up to $5,000, so you could receive payment the same day you file. Because they offer remote, in-person and drop-off options, filing is fast and convenient. To learn more, visit In an unusual year, filing taxes can come with additional stress and uncertainty. Following some simple tips can help ensure you secure the best possible outcome.

Saying ‘Thank You’ To Military Service Members continued from page 3

by Michele Harvey

I’ve been on facebook for over ten years. Initially it was a lot of fun connecting with old friends and making new friends. Eventually though many people got very opinionated about things that other people wanted to argue about. Politics is the worst. And some people use foul language which I cannot stand to hear or to read. I know that I’ve been justifiably blocked by people whose opinions are different than mine and I’ve blocked a few people myself. However, these days I stay away from those postings as much as possible and stick with feel good posts. I like to see what’s new on Julian Cats with Heart. San Diego Gardener is informative. I watch for posts on both Julian Connections. Lots of great snow photos this week. San Diego County Quilters is a fun site to watch and so is Buy Nothing Julian, CA and Surrounding Areas. I sometimes look for and learn from Julian Help Wanted and Work Offered, just as I’ve learned a lot from other sites. I have two favorite sites that I like to spend time on. One is Julian, CA Stories, Memories and Photographs. I’ve lived in Julian since early 1984, so occasionally I can add my own stories and memories. My other favorite local site is San Diego Backyard Chickens. I also spend too much time watching videos put up by the Chicken Chick. She is in Connecticut. I’ve learned a lot from her. I have a really tall handsome rooster that we named big Red. Red is a Black Copper Moran. He has many iridescent colors and runs as clumsy as he is handsome. He is the boss of our chicken flock. We have a second rooster who I call Whitey because he is except for yellow feathers along his sides. Whitey is smaller than Big Red and distances himself from Red because Red likes to chase him to show off to the girls. We have eight hens We were given three full grown hens last March along with the roosters and later in March we added chicks to the flock. Our grown hens are Henrietta, a Barred Rock who doesn’t allow any other chicken to get between her and her food. Any chicken who tries gets poked in the butt. It didn’t take Henrietta long to convince all of the other chickens to stay out of her way. Goldie came to us full grown. She is an Araucana with feathers that shine gold in sunlight. Goldie lays pale blue eggs. She also has a bad attitude toward the newer hens. Our other hen that we received full grown still looks small. From the beginning I named her Chicken Little because she reminded me of the chicken in the story who was actually named Henny Penny, but I didn’t remember that at the time. Chicken Little can’t seem to go anywhere without running, and that’s how she got her name. She runs as if an acorn fell on her head and she is yelling “The Sky is falling”. These days her entire back and the back of her wings are completely without feathers and after watching her closely I’m wondering if we shouldn’t rename her Soiled Dove after the fallen women who worked in the cribs during the 1800s gold rush in Alaska. When we bought our newest hens last March they were fuzzy little chicks. One is a Lavender Orpington. She looked like a grey powder puff when she was a week old. Lavender Orpingtons have grey feathers with thin darker grey edges. Her butt is still full of the fgrey fluff she was born with, so I named her Fluff. I know, not very original. We bought two Speckled Sussex. You really don’t know what the will look like until they get fully feathered. Once feathered, they are a beautiful rust color with specks of white all over them looking like someone flecked paint on them. One of these girls has a pronounced round white spot on her tail so I named her Spot. I named the other one Speck. Two of our hens are Sex-Link, meaning they are cross bred. This is done so males and females can be told apart the day they are born, to make them excellent egg layers and to have good temperaments. Ours do have very good temperaments just as Fluff, Spot and Speck do. Our Sex-Link hens are black with dark brown, chestnut colored wings and in the right angle of daylight you can see midnight blue feathers of their backs. We names our Sex-Links Agatha and Miss Marple. We thought about naming them Agatha and Christie, but Christie just didn’t seem like a proper hen name. Having two roosters and eight hens suits me. We let them out of the coop each morning. During the day we let our chickens free-range in hopes that they will eat lots of bugs and weed seeds on our property and we lock them in each evening after they have put themselves to bed for the night. We had an old sheep shed on our property that burned down during the Cedar Fire, all except the three foot tall rock walls that remained standing. Using those walls as a base, my son Robert built a coop and a chicken yard which is so sturdy that we call it a Chicken Fortress. Our entire family makes certain that chickens are let out in the morning and locked away at night. Twice when we though the grandkids had put the chickens away; they hadn’t. A possum was in the hen house and the chickens were complaining and attacking him. You go chickens! This time of year, we get plenty of eggs, way more than we need, so we share them. Sometimes we share them with people in need and sometimes we share them with friends and neighbors. This is just one of the advantages of having chickens. These are my thoughts.

their family dinner, or to pick up groceries. Simply reaching out to see how they are doing can also make all the difference. 4. Volunteer. Put your gratitude into action. Many USO locations across the country need volunteers who can facilitate programs and events – virtually or safely in person – that provide the military community with the support needed to carry out their missions. 5. Donate. The USO has been expressing its thanks to service members by supporting the troops since World War II. Today, that gratitude is shown in USO locations around the globe; these brickand-mortar centers serve as a home away from home for deployed service members, and a place of respite for the larger military community. USO programming keeps deployed troops connected to loved ones, provides resources for service members and their families and boosts the morale of the entire military community through entertainment and other supportive events. Charitable donations to the USO help make that mission possible. To learn more about the USO’s work and discover additional ways to give more thanks, visit and follow the conversation at #MoreThanThanks. “Our service members and their families’ sacrifices require us to rise to the challenge. All Americans, united in spirit and action, can change the lives and communities of our military, and thus, our country, for the better,” says J.D. Crouch II, CEO and president of the USO.

(NAPSI)—The classic American road trip is getting a makeover. To meet the growing need for deeper, meaningful experiences that promote wellbeing, the automaker Lexus is putting travelers behind the wheel in its first-ever “Retreats in Motion” program. These five-day, four-night driving retreats allow guests to take a scenic, restorative drive in a new 2021 Lexus IS between two of the brand’s luxury hotel partners, with curated self-care activities along the way. “These days, the desire to escape on the open road to rejuvenate mind and spirit has never been more enticing,” says Vinay Shahani, Lexus vice president of marketing. “The ‘Retreats in Motion’ program not only provides perfectly planned, luxurious getaways in a Lexus vehicle, but they also elevate the classic road trip with much-needed recuperative experiences.” The Lexus partner hotels selected for the “Retreats in Motion” program have been hand-picked for their exceptional service, beautiful design and culinary offerings. Guests will spend two nights at each resort—with an average three-hour drive between each property— before returning to the originating hotel. Participating hotels in three California-based retreats include: • Cavallo Point Lodge to Post Ranch Inn • Bardessono Hotel & Spa to Pebble Beach Resorts • Terranea Resort to Post Ranch Inn In spring 2021, those visiting the East Coast will be able to travel between XV Beacon and Chatham Bars Inn in Massachusetts. Travelers will be paired with the new 2021 Lexus IS sport sedan at their originating hotel before embarking on a customized route featuring suggested stops and wellness activities to enjoy throughout their drive. They’ll feast their eyes on beautiful views, relax with aromatherapy or guided breathwork, and have the option to indulge their taste buds with healthy gourmet meals at the end of each day. Unlike typical getaways, the “Retreats in Motion” program

Making Daylight Saving Time Work for You (StatePoint) Daylight Saving Time (DST) is here, which means you are operating on a brand new schedule. Unfortunately, time changes can cause many negative physical and mental effects on the body -- and be a logistical nuisance to boot! To make DST work for you, consider the following tips: • Wind down in the evening: A good night’s sleep can help you power through anything. A few hours before bed, avoid anything that wires you. This includes that post-dinner cup of joe, high-intensity workouts and blue light from electronic devices. Good alternatives? Caffeine-free herbal tea, yin yoga and curling up with a great book. • Set dual alarms: Most people think that alarms are just for mornings, but you can use them to remind you when it’s time to go to bed too. The many features of Pro Trek watches make them a good choice of a tool for sticking to your schedule. Plus, keeping your watch bedside, instead of your phone, can help you avoid messing with your shuteye by mindlessly scrolling right before light’s out. • Get to bed on time: DST, plus longer days, can make it tempting to stay up late. As much as possible, try to keep your bedtime consistent, especially on the weekdays. • Get more sunlight: Reap the benefits of sunlight and exercise in conjunction with one another for a powerful pick-me-up and mood booster. This will help you combat any negative mental effects associated with the new hours. Whether it’s a short jaunt or a long hike, equip yourself with wearable tech that offers everything you need to navigate the terrain, such as a Pro Trek watch, that offers an altimeter, barometer, thermometer and compass sensors. With a few simple strategies, you can help avoid any DST woes for a healthy, happy start to the season.

incorporates the vehicle as an integral part of the wellness experience. More than just transporting travelers from each partner hotel, the Lexus vehicle is a destination and sanctuary in and of itself and is equipped with a mobile wellness kit to help travelers get the most out of their journey. In creating the program, the automaker has partnered with mindbodygreen, a health and well-being lifestyle media brand, to create custom content featuring some of the world’s most-loved wellness experts for each retreat. Highlights include podcasts on sustainability with best-selling author Jonathan Safran Foer and a guided walking meditation with teacher Mary Beth LaRue, along with content covering topics from mindful eating to movement for longevity. Additionally, an immersive in-car sound bath with expert Sara Auster—designed to be played through the signature Mark Levinson sound system—helps clear energy blockages and deliver a sense of calm. “mindbodygreen has enjoyed being a trusted destination and resource for well-being for over eleven years, bringing together experts across all facets of health and wellness for our collective audience,” says Colleen Wachob, mindbodygreen co-founder and co-CEO. “Our team is so excited to work with an innovative, forwardthinking brand like Lexus on this partnership. Together, we’re creating something really unique and so vital to people’s well-being.” Guests are responsible for the “Retreats in Motion” registration costs and travel expenses, which include: • Five-day, four-night stay at each property; • Loan of a new 2021 Lexus IS vehicle; • Intimate access to curated wellness content, including self-care discussions, in-vehicle sound bath, meditation, guided breathwork and more; • Complimentary welcome wellness kit. Lexus and its hotel partners deeply value the health and well-being of their guests. Comprehensive health and sanitization procedures have been put in place for each Lexus vehicle and the hotels have implemented their own measures. Please refer to each partner hotel website for more details on their COVID protocols. For more information or to book a Lexus “Retreats in Motion,” visit

became the primary source of food for most of the population. Potatoes are nourishing and filling, and contain most of the vitamins needed in our daily diet. The crop also is a popular food source around the world because it only requires an acre of land and will grow under almost any conditions. An Irish potato is covered with an off-white or cream-colored skin. The flesh is creamy white. Black flecks or marks often mottle the flesh of the potato, but have no impact on the flavor. An Irish potato is waxy, which makes it hold its shape when boiled, a common cooking technique in Ireland. The potatoes also are delicious when fried, roasted or broiled. However, the potato’s waxy texture makes it gluey and

dense when mashed, so select another variety like a Russet or Yukon gold for this purpose. In the mid-1800s, a disease caused by a fungus infested potato crops throughout Europe, causing a devastating famine in Ireland. This time period is called the Great Famine or Gorta Mor, meaning “the great hunger.” Mass emigration coupled with widespread deaths from starvation caused the Irish population to drop by 20% to 25%. Many Irish families immigrated to America to escape the hardships in Ireland and to start a new life. By 1850, the Irish made up a quarter of the population in Boston, New York City, Philadelphia and Baltimore. After years of suffering in Ireland, in 1883, the French

Rhine Wine Glass

Most of us have a few differently shaped glasses, some to use every day and others for parties. You need a water glass and wine glasses, one for white wine and another for red. Before dinner you need cocktail glasses and rocks glasses for whiskey "on the rocks" (ice cubes). It is possible to collect vintage glassware in more than a dozen shapes. Cordial glasses are popular because they are small and made by many firms in many colors, often with cut, engraved or painted decorations. A Rhine wine glass was offered at Woody Auctions in 2019. It is a rarely used shape with a

cupped bowl, a tall stem and a flat round foot. The auction had an example made by Val St. Lambert, a Belgian glass firm that started in 1825 and is still working. The auctioned example was made of blue glass cut to Vaseline glass with a clear stem. It sold for $450. The company copied many United States glass patterns, including some used by Fry, Libbey, Sandwich, Dorflinger, Bergen and more. It also made vases, punch bowls, biscuit jars, compotes, candlesticks, coasters and many other table items. Val St. Lambert can be hard to identify. When new, there is a paper label or the company name in a circle or an oval with clipped ends. It also may say "depose," the French word that refers to a design patent. *** Q: I have a set of Stangl dinnerware that I got from an aunt years ago. It's the Pink Dogwood pattern. There are

dinner plates, salad plates, cups and saucers, and other items. Most have the price tags still on them and haven't been used. I'd like to sell them. A: As we've said many times before, it's hard to sell sets of vintage dinnerware. If you find a matching service or online source that will buy it, you have to pack it, insure it and ship it, and it likely won't sell for very much anyway. It's easier to try to sell it locally. Take it to a local antiques dealer who sells dishes or to a consignment shop. They may help you set the price and will tell you what percentage you'll get if it sells. It probably will be a better deal to donate it to a charity shop and take the tax deduction. *** CURRENT PRICES Child's highchair, Windsor, 6 spindles, black & red paint, plank seat, splayed bamboo turned legs, 30 x 16 inches, $180.

(Family Features) Spring cleaning isn't just about purging dirt and grime. It's also the perfect opportunity to take inventory of items around your home. As you tackle this season's cleaning, look for ways to improve your overall living space, from getting rid of things you no longer need to adding items that can work harder for you. Consider these five ways to tackle your home inside and out this spring. Make organizing easier. As you clean each space, look for easy ways to reduce unsightly messes and improve organization. If your entryway always becomes a jumbled pile of shoes and coats, consider adding a storage bench and hooks to bring some order to the area. If the kids' toys always accumulate in the living room, add a storage chest or large baskets to store them when not in use. If tools and equipment make the garage unusable, install shelving units to keep everything in place. Eliminate the excess. Spring cleaning is also an opportunity to declutter and make way for something new, either by donating or selling unused things. Whether it's last season's fashion and accessories or unused tech and fitness gear, that item you never used - or haven't used in a while - may be exactly what someone else is looking for. Online platforms can make the process easy and be a way to earn extra cash or help fund other home upgrades. Look for marketplaces that help you maximize your return; eBay, for example, is giving sellers 200 free listings every month, meaning you only pay after your items sell. Reimagine your living space. If one area is becoming too crowded or doesn't serve your family's needs, consider items you can repurpose for another part of the home. For example, move an unused chair in your living room into a bedroom to create a reading nook. Keep your focus on function as you make changes that accommodate your lifestyle. Make smart additions. Once you've cleared your space, and sold things you no longer need, you can convert that extra cash into reliable home appliances and tech. For example, purchase or upgrade items like vacuums, lawn mowers, power washers, drills and more to help take your spring cleaning to the next level. You can make your money go further by choosing certified refurbished products; some marketplaces like eBay offer inventory that has been professionally inspected by the manufacturer, or a manufacturerapproved vendor, to look, feel and work like new. Commit to revisiting regularly. It's easy to let clutter and disorganization slide when you get busy with life's demands. Once your spring cleaning and reorganizing is complete, commit to reassessing your home on a monthly or quarterly basis so you can make small adjustments along the way, rather than face a major project every year. Shop Smarter Considering refurbished products for your shopping list can expand your options and make it easier to purchase

I like wind. Gentle breezes cool us and carry sounds of laughter. Ocean breezes smell so good! “Picnic” breezes lift our kites high into the air. When strong storm winds blow, they howl and shake the house. But, while the winds wrap around homes, people curl up with good books and families slow down to play board games together. Have you ever heard the saying that “March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb”? That means that the month starts off windy, but at the end it is calm.

In 1806, a Rear Admiral in the Royal Navy, Sir Francis Beaufort, created a table of wind speeds and how they would affect ocean waves and the use of a ship’s sails. The Beaufort Wind Scale is a table of wind speed. It has been changed a little bit over the years, but is still the table that weather forecasters and sailors use today. Match the wind speed to the effect it has: 1. calm day (0 up to 1 mph) 2. light breeze (4-7 mph) 3. near gale (32-38 mph) 4. violent storm (64-72 mph) 5. hurricane (72-82 mph)

California Commentary

California’s Embarrassment Of Tax Riches

by Jon Coupal

California politicians, including Gov. Gavin Newsom and majority party legislators, practically break their arms trying to pat themselves on the back for the fact that California has a large and unexpected budget surplus. According to last month’s report from the California Department of Finance, general fund receipts for the first seven months of the current fiscal year were $10.5 billion above the Governor’s Budget forecast. But government policies had little to do with the generation of this excess revenue. After all, more so than most other states, California imposed some of the most draconian lockdown laws (many pursuant to executive orders) in the nation. But California taxpayers continued to contribute to state revenue in large amounts, not because of these regulations, but in spite of them. The reality is that the private sector can adapt with more innovation and flexibility than is ever demonstrated in the public sector. Companies allowed their employees to work from home and for many businesses, particularly in the technology sector, operations scarcely skipped a beat. That doesn’t mean that there hasn’t been private-sector pain. The government-imposed lockdowns have crushed many service industries such as hair salons, restaurants, the travel industry and theme parks. This is evidenced by California’s continued high unemployment rate and steady outmigration of both businesses and individuals. Nonetheless, the “California Tax Machine” (the actual title of a book) continues to chug along. Strangely enough, the billions of dollars of unanticipated revenue in California presents an embarrassing situation for Democrats in both Sacramento and Washington. In the state Capitol, a brimming treasury removes the need for more tax hikes. Such calls for new taxes were difficult enough with California’s already highest-inthe-nation income tax rate, state sales tax rate and gas tax. But now such proposals just look greedy, much like a billionaire expecting a working class relative to pick up the check at a posh restaurant. Of course, that hasn’t stopped the most radical of progressives from putting several such

proposals on the table, but even some Democrats are pushing back on the idea of higher taxes. For example, Gov. Newsom has so far rejected the idea of one of the more radical proposals, a wealth tax on California’s millionaires and billionaires. Shamelessness on the part of progressives is also evident in Washington, D.C., as Democrats debate Republicans over the next round of COVID-19 relief. The former have argued for a massive $1.9 trillion package while Republicans argue for a more targeted package. As of this writing, it appears that Democrats will get most of what they want with a final product close to the $1.9 trillion passed by the House of Representatives with only a few minor tweaks in the Senate. This is a shame because less than ten percent of the $1.9 trillion is actually related to COVID-19 relief. The rest is nothing more than a bailout package for mismanaged, profligate states and publicsector unions. For example, there is a special provision giving federal employees a cash payment if they have been unable to go to work because they had to stay home with their children. A nice perk, but why not give it to private-sector employees as well? Fiscally prudent states also have a legitimate complaint that $86 billion in so-called “COVID relief” will actually go to shore up the public pension funds of states run by Democrats. Illinois and California are the two biggest examples. Last week, the non-partisan Tax Foundation released a shocking analysis showing that the state aid in the so-called American Rescue Plan Act is actually 116 times the states’ revenue losses: “The preliminary data suggest that states closed out calendar year 2020 with only $1.7 billion less revenue than they generated in 2019 (a decline of less than 0.2 percent), not counting federal assistance, while municipal governments actually experienced substantial revenue growth due to rising property values. Yet the American Rescue Plan Act sets aside $350 billion in additional state and local aid. Increasingly, federal proposals to provide a cash infusion for state and local governments has continued on page 12

The paint-like swirls of this visualization from Los Alamos National Laboratory depict global water-surface temperatures, with the cooler temperatures designated by blues and warmer temperatures by reds, as delineated by recent climate modeling efforts. Credit: Los Alamos National Laboratory, FlickrCC. Dear EarthTalk: How does climate modeling work? What is the state-of-the-art in the field these days, and what do these most recent models tell us about our future? – J.M., Austin, TX Climate models are 3D figures of the Earth’s surface that demonstrate the cycling of energy and materials through the atmosphere, oceans and land. They compile geography, physics, chemistry and biology to analyze historical data and predict future global conditions. Ultimately, these models allow researchers and the public to explore Earth’s systems, climate change and the impacts of human activity on the planet. The Coupled Model Intercomparison Projects (CMIP), conducted by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), are some of the most detailed and expansive climate models to date. They show that the warming predicted from this century may be 0.4 degrees C greater than what was deduced from the CMIP5 in 2013. This may not sound significant, but it takes an immense amount of heat and, in this case, trapped greenhouse gases to warm the atmosphere, oceans and land that much. In the 1700s, it only took a 1-2 degree drop in global temperature to plunge the Earth into the Little Ice Age. The CMIPs have also been proven to be very accurate. Fourteen of the 17 models done between 1970 and 2007 made similar projections of temperature change through the next decade as found by UC Berkeley researchers. These findings have bolstered the support for and confidence in the use of climate models. Climate models may be portrayed as alarmist or extreme by some skeptics, but they actually tend to be more conservative with their predictions since a net positive feedback—that is, an overloading of the system with greenhouse gases—skews toward a stronger climate response. One example is the recorded sea level rise from satellite data collected from 1993 to 2008. CMIP3 models predicted just 1.9 millimeters of sea level rise while the data collected in the following years showed 3.4 millimeters of sea level rise. CMIP models also underestimated sea ice melt-out rates. Between 2007 and 2009, the amount of sea ice that melted was 40 percent greater than the average predicted by CMIP4 models. One aspect of the new CMIP6 models that will work toward addressing underestimations are their higher climate sensitivity in comparison to past assessments. Climate sensitivity is the amount of long-term warming expected after a doubling of carbon emissions that greatly affects the model’s predictions. To eliminate more of the uncertainty from past models, scientists and mathematicians are constantly evolving climate models to improve their accuracy. Though it is undeniable that models innately have uncertainties and the Earth encompasses a collection of complex systems, climate models have proven to be reliable predictors of climate change trends. Whether or not these most recent models will continue in that vein can only be determined over time, but climate action is not something that can wait any longer.

Celebrate Birthdays From A Safe Social Distance

(Family Features) A year into the COVID-19 pandemic, finding safe ways to celebrate special events like birthdays can provide a boost for mental health. Whether you're celebrating a kid or a kid at heart, planning a socially distant birthday party is a way to enjoy some camaraderie and honor life's important milestones. For Kids Younger partygoers may be more difficult to corral than adults who have a better understanding of social distancing guidelines. That's why it's a good idea to host kids' parties outdoors. * Art Far Apart - Use the sidewalk or driveway as a canvas and have each kid (and parent) spread out. Provide trays of supplies like chalk or washable paint and encourage kids to interact with sing-a-long songs and games. * Driveway Performance Many kid-friendly entertainers who made a living with special appearances at schools, libraries and other family events have modified their performances to accommodate small, private crowds. Look into local musicians, magicians and other kid-friendly performers who might set up in your yard or driveway while guests lounge on blankets and chairs from a comfortable distance. * Birthday Parade - If getting together isn't practical, you can still make a little one's day special by hosting a drive-by parade. Allow the birthday boy or girl to dress up in his or her birthday best and create a throne to sit on while watching friends and family drive by and wave from cars decorated with streamers and balloons. (If you live in a smaller community, check with the local police or fire station to see if they're willing to get in on the fun with a guest drive-by appearance.) For Adults Like kids, many adults are simply craving personal interaction, so even the simplest of gatherings can make a birthday feel special. * Wine Tasting - Set up a series of seating areas around the backyard where same household groups can gather. Use disposable shot glasses to serve flights of wine samples to each group or ask guests to bring their own and use flowerpots filled with ice to keep bottles chilled. * Pool Party - While kids young and old are likely to enjoy a party set poolside, an older crowd is more likely to keep some distance in the water. Scatter some shade umbrellas around so each group has its own home base and plan on single-serve refreshments or ask guests to bring their own coolers. continued on page 12

Design Do’s & Don’ts: Embrace The Year’s Top Interior Design Trends

(StatePoint) The COVID-19 pandemic permanently evolved our definition of “home,” inspiring us to reconsider how we use and live in our spaces. For many, it’s no longer just the place where we relax and regroup at the end of the day – it’s also an office, daycare, eatery, gym or classroom. Whether you’re looking to create balance and boundaries between work and play or simply want to turn over a new leaf, there’s never been a more perfect time to commit to switching things up with major home design updates and DIY projects. The thought of overhauling your home’s décor can be overwhelming, but finding inspiration in the year’s top trends – like the annual 2021 Design Trends developed by FrogTape in collaboration with celebrity interior designer Taniya Nayak – can help take the pressure off. Follow these do’s and don’ts to achieve professional results while embracing 2021’s top interior design trends. 1. Do: Create a personal sanctuary. We could all use an in-home sanctuary where we can retreat, rest and ease our minds from uncertainty and anxiety. From a dedicated meditation room to a simple, quiet corner, using cozy layers and soothing colors can establish a tranquil environment to ground you on even the most hectic days. 2. Don’t: Shy away from colors. Don’t be afraid to incorporate colors in your home décor – especially in spaces designated for happy activities like afterwork cocktails or fun with kids and pets. Vivid greens, pinks and blues, inspired by the outdoors, fruity drinks and blue skies, evoke

joyful emotions. Create a sense of fun in your playroom, backyard or patio by incorporating cheerful hues, playful accessories and bright textiles. Use a high-quality painter’s tape like FrogTape to bring this trend to life with custom hand-painted planters or bold geometric accent walls. 3. Do: Use contrast to establish focal points. From adding a pop of bright color against a neutral tone to pairing light, airy textures against deep leathers, there are countless ways to create focal points using contrast throughout the home. This trend works especially well in kitchens, dining rooms and breakfast nooks. Embrace stunning, natureinspired hues in eating areas by painting cabinets or an accent wall in a rich tone and displaying other colorful touches to catch your eye while you enjoy your meals. 4. Don’t: Settle for a dull work-from-home space. For those working from home into 2021 and beyond, establishing boundaries between work and play is critical. Whether you have a sprawling office or a small nook

under a staircase, create a space that makes you excited to “go into work.” Combine neutral tones with punches of color to ignite your creativity while keeping you alert and focused throughout the day. 5. Do: Add your own personal twist. While design trends can serve as a great starting point to spark your inspiration, they’re meant to serve as more of a mood board than a rule book. Whether it’s a unique painting or an over-the-top accent wall, be sure to incorporate elements of your own style, interests and flair as you plan out your projects and designs. To learn more about this year’s top interior design trends and how you can incorporate them in your upcoming home design updates, visit Trends. With the right tools and inspiration, you can achieve professional results in your home redesign.

working, so you'll want to make accommodations to make those moments more enjoyable. For example, a raised large basin tile sink offers a spine-friendly alternative to bending over or squatting while washing a pet or potting plants. For a larger dog you can't heft into a sink, you might consider a washing station with tiled steps, a frameless glass enclosure and low-mounted, hand-held showerhead. Find more ideas an inspiration for creating a multi-purpose room that fits your lifestyle at wellborn. com. Pampered Pets With a pet-friendly multipurpose room, you can make the less glamorous tasks of pet ownership more enjoyable while you shower your pooch with special attention. Built-in kennel: Using cabinetry, along with sturdy chicken wire mesh in place of panels on the door frames, you can build

Style A Multi-Purpose Room continued from page 8

a space that serves not only your basic laundry essentials, but also provides space for you to care for four-legged friends or enjoy a hobby. For example, you might add pet washing and grooming features, along with an oversized sink that doubles as a gardening and potting area. In a multi-use room, it's also important to be conscious of details like lighting and cabinetry inserts that can help bring organization and order to the space. Puck lighting and LED strips illuminate select areas while dividers, sliding shelves and custom pull-out cabinets ensure your items are stored out of sight but within easy reach. Be color conscious. In a hightraffic space that sees a fair share of dirt and grime, color is an attractive way to cleverly disguise what lurks in between











cleanings. Gray tones are at the core of many contemporary interior schemes, and a midtone gray color palette is ideal to hide dirt and hair while providing a crisp and clean foundation for a cohesive look. For example, Wellborn Cabinet's Shaker-style Hanover door offers clean, fussfree lines ideal for a utilitarian space. Choose maple and finish the cabinetry with Ash stain, a trending mid-tone gray that emphasizes the detail of the wood grain. You can also bring additional character and personality to the space with accent color. For example, earthy green walls and tiling that complements the paint and cabinetry offer a subtle blend of colors that enhance the overarching contemporary feel. Focus on ergonomics. A utility room is a place for



a stylish kennel right into the room. A simple drip tray protects the wood surface and makes cleanup easy. Toe-kick feeder: Maximize every inch of space with clever solutions like a feeder that hides away under the cabinets. With built-in wells for food and water dishes, this convenient unit appears with a gentle nudge then easily slides back under the cabinet to make the space clean and neat again. Pet feeding center: Organizing your pet supplies keeps the area extra tidy, so make use of hidden storage with a pullout cabinet that holds pet food and other accessories out of sight.

continued from page 6 botanist Alexandre Millardet discovered an effective fungicide to combat the potato blight. Today, potatoes are the world’s fourth largest food crop, following rice, wheat and maize. Here’s a link to a fascinating animated history about the Irish potato: ht t p s: //e d.te d.c o m / l e s s o n s / history-through-the-eyes-of-thepotato. My recipe for Irish Sheet Pan Potatoes, Sausage and Cabbage Bake is an easy way to incorporate the flavor components of a traditional, longsimmering Irish stew in half the time. It also provides the perfect showcase for Irish potatoes while creating a warm and comforting family meal for a St. Patrick’s Day or any day of the week. IRISH SHEET PAN POTATOES, SAUSAGE AND CABBAGE BAKE 3 tablespoons olive or vegetable oil, divided 2 pounds Irish potatoes, quartered 1/2 head green cabbage, sliced into chunks 1 bulb fennel or 3 stalks celery, thinly sliced 1 yellow onion, peeled and roughly chopped 6 cloves garlic, peeled and diced 1 1/2 tablespoons poultry seasoning 1 1/2 teaspoons salt 1 1/2 teaspoons ground black pepper 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice 6 links (about 3-ounces each) Irish banger sausage links, Kielbasa or Bratwurst links 1. Preheat the oven to 400 F. 2. Lightly coat a rimmed, 9-by13 or 18-by-13 baking sheet with 1 tablespoon of the olive oil, or spray until lightly coated with cooking oil spray. 3. Place the Irish potatoes, cabbage, fennel or celery, onion and garlic on the sheet pan. Drizzle the olive oil over the vegetable mixture. Sprinkle the poultry seasoning, salt, pepper and allspice over the mixture.

Combine the mixture with the seasonings with your clean hands or a spoon or spatula. 4. Spread the mixture evenly around the baking sheet and press the ingredients into the bottom of the pan so that everything cooks uniformly. Place the sausages evenly on top of the vegetable mixture. 5. Cook for 20 minutes, stir, press the vegetable mixture into the bottom of the pan so that it is evenly distributed, and turn the sausages over to cook on the other side. Then cook for an additional 20 minutes or until the potatoes are tender when pierced with a fork. Serve with thick slices of hot crusty bread and butter. Serves 6. ***

This week, turn some of that sensitivity into an honest selfappraisal, and let it find places where you can help yourself. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Creating an emotional comfort zone to handle a personal problem helps at first. But by midweek, you'll realize you need to deal with it directly or it could linger for too long. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) Turning the page on a mistake to start fresh might not be the thing to do. Better to go over each step that led up to the decision you made and see which one misled you. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Goats enjoy a varied diet, but eating crow isn't on the menu -- at least not this week. An embarrassing situation might have gone wrong before you got into it. Check it out. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Your sense of honesty might impel you to speak up about a situation you disapprove of. That's fine. But do so without sounding accusatory. You might not know all the facts behind it. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Being asked to create a reassuring attitude in the middle of chaos isn't easy, but you can do it. Support for your efforts comes slowly, but it does come. Enjoy an arts-filled weekend. BORN THIS WEEK: Your honesty about people and issues is expressed in a positive, not painful, way.

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) You might feel more encouraged about changes in your personal and/or professional life. However, it might be best not to rush things but rather work with them as they evolve. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) The Bovine's business sense is especially keen this week. But remember that it's always best to investigate before investing. Make sure there are no hidden factors that can rise up later on. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Working on a family project could create tension between and among those concerned. Your good sense and your patience can help reduce bad attitudes and raise positive feelings. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You should be seeing more progress in the development of your plans and more supporters joining in. News from the past could help change someone's long-held position. LEO (July 23 to August 22) With personal aspects strong this week, Leos and Leonas might want to spend more time with family and others who are especially close to them. Also expect news of a possible career change. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Taking a strong stand can be helpful this week. But be careful you don't cross the line into obstinacy. Best to take a position on facts as they are, not as you want them to be. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) You have a strong sense of the needs of others.

ramifications well past initial relief payments. Proofpoint has identified a business link between the group behind W2 scams and fraudsters in Western Africa, specifically Nigeria, who have been accused of using stolen identities to commit unemployment fraud during the pandemic in states including Washington. More broadly, an initial report by the Labor Department inspector general found that scammers including cyber criminals stole at least $36 billion in unemployment benefits last year. “Given how many people are getting tax benefits and tax credits that they wouldn't have gotten before that, the value of that stolen W-2 just went up and cyber criminals will not have ignored that in the [stimulus package]," says Kalember. Anticipating a new wave of fraud following the new relief bill, the state of California hired three outside cybersecurity firms to verify worker identities, the Los Angeles Times reports. Government officials are also preparing for a new wave of scams. The IRS warned last month of a scam email impersonating the agency asking tax professionals to share their electronic filing identification numbers. The scammers could use the information to file fraudulent tax returns. A tip sheet released by the National Cybersecurity Alliance and the Internal Revenue Service yesterday warns individuals to be skeptical of any phone calls, emails or texts claiming to be from the IRS. The agency will almost always initiate contact through USPS first, it says.

women of the world. I partnered with Physicians for Human Rights to do my first psychiatric assessment of refugees in danger of deportation through Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE). The story I heard confirmed what I already knew. Some women live in constant fear of death and torture. Some women know that when they die, no one will remember them. I will not let this be. The United Nations outlines seven strategies for prevention of violence against women: relationship skill strengthening, empowerment of women, ensuring services, reducing poverty, preventing child abuse, enabling transformational environments and finally, transforming beliefs. Transforming the belief that nothing can be done is what makes me feel best in my own healing journey. My own privilege means nothing if others cannot share in it.

California Commentary

continued from page 9 become a solution in search of a problem.” Consistent with the Tax Foundation’s report, California has increased spending at levels far in excess of both inflation and population gains. Perhaps that is why Californians wisely rejected statewide tax hikes including the infamous “split roll” proposal which went down to defeat in November. Will this potential embarrassment be enough to derail adding $1.9 trillion to the federal debt? Probably not. Democrats, while they have paper-thin majorities in both houses, seem immune to shameful scrutiny. But just as in President Barack Obama’s first two years, which included jamming through the ironically labeled “Affordable Care Act,” progressives have a way of overreaching when given power. This could very well catch up with them in the midterm elections, and 2022 is not that far away. *** Jon Coupal is the president of the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association.
