A daffodil is one of the prettiest flowers And all have to do is plant the bulb And give it a small bit of water And they will grow And they can come in different colors Some all yellow Some all white And some yellow and white You just never know. By Nate Relaford

Daffodil’s like the sun, cup orange, leave’s yellow The cup is like the soul of a person, the leave’s are like the body parts to keep it up The daffodil’s bulb is like the heart, if you pull it out it dies Little bugs dance, until the bee’s come. By Brady Perry

Daffodil, your pedals are bright yellow like the sun And your cup is like a beautiful orange sunset The stem is a green of the rolling meadows It has marks like an old oak tree The stamen is like a never ending shooting star Fare well daffodil, see your beauty next summer. By Jonah Clibourne

She is one of my most favorite characters. She was beautiful, and lived in San Diego. She also loved music very much. Her name was Lily Bell Clemens,Couts/Schroeder. How did this happen?? Its starts in February 1877, Elisabeth B. ,Clemens distant cousin of Samuel longhorn Clemens. Fame., And author~ ,married Cave J.Couts The second. They will add one child, Cave Johnson Coutsthird, ASKA-Toots. And they lived at the Rancho Guajome Adobe, now located on the boundary between Vista and Oceanside. June 1897, they were divorced, as she ,found proof that he was unfaithful. She later married a Dr. Charles Schroeder, and they lived in Tucson Arizona. She later collected Indian baskets, and had the largest and best collection west of the Mississippi. Cave Couts The second, purchased the Ranchita gold mine in the Julian district in 1895. Generally regarded as the richest mine in the Julian area. Gold was discovered in during 1870. It proved to be a great disappointment to Couts, He got little out of it but debts and troubles. Now the interesting part ofthe story- in April 1888, Elisabeth B. Schrader, brought suit against her former husband, for atteged recovery and a for closure on the mortgage on the Ranchita mine,of a promissory note. Couts had already sold the property for $150,000. Many more court cases and filings followed. So on November 21, 1899, the sale1~fethe Ranchita Mine on the banner grade, was sold to a Mr. VE Shaw. And guess who this agent represented? Our character, Lily Bell! The only woman to own a Julian gold mine. Oh, there are other notable characters of this time, including Helen hunt Jackson, the author of the novel,Ramona. A real woman's rights and Indian rights advocate. There would be no San Diego County Indian reservations without the work of Helen hunt Jackson. But that's a story for another time. Ron Quirk ia a docent at the Rancho Guajome.

Each week leading up to graduation the Julian News is shinning a spotlight on the graduation senior class at Julian High School.

Parents More Optimistic About Education

Tips to Raise Earth-Conscious Kid demonstrate creative ways to reduce, reuse and recycle. For example, you can construct bird feeders from milk jugs and then have kids decorate them. The best part? This is a sustainable DIY project that benefits wildlife, plus gives children an opportunity to observe flying visitors to the yard. You can also craft your own musical instruments. For example, rainsticks, so-named because they mimic the natural sounds of rain, can be made by filling paper towel rolls with uncooked rice. Or, keep the beat using homemade maracas made by filling empty plastic bottles with dried beans. Finally, with just a few rubber bands and some glue, you can transform yesterday’s cereal box into a guitar. Now you have enough instruments to start your own band! • Learn Through Play: Kids can benefit from toys as early as

12. What’s a bad habit you have?

(StatePoint) Children are never too young to learn the importance of sustainability or begin adopting eco-friendly habits. Earth Day, celebrated April 22, is a great time to get started, and experts say it all starts with playtime. “Kids are built to absorb information at a tremendous pace,” says Anna Yudina, senior director, Marketing Initiatives, The Toy Association. “During playtime especially, they form deep emotional connections to the values they’re learning. This means that you can help your child embrace an earthconscious mindset simply by making it fun.” Check out these Earth Day tips and insights from The Genius of Play -- a national movement to educate parents and caregivers about play’s vital role in child development: • Eco-Friendly Crafting: Crafting that uses household objects can

one month old with sensory play that helps stimulate senses and develops motor skills. However, they develop habits and values that will last a lifetime during ages 3-9 the most. During these years,

introduce toys that reinforce the importance of sustainability. For example, a plush sea turtle can help a younger child understand the connection between plastic pollution and the health of marine creatures. For a tween or teen, a wind turbine science kit can build STEM skills and interest, while introducing the concepts of sustainable energy and climate change. • Outdoor Fun: Warmer, longer days expand opportunities to play outdoors, be active and explore the natural world. Build a nature scavenger hunt in your backyard or take an ecology walk and observe critters, rocks and leaves with magnifying glasses. Bonus: beyond boosting an appreciation for the environment, active play is critical for child development, helping hone coordination, balance and motor skills and setting the stage for a lifetime of good health. • Pretend Play: Pretend play is key for developing curiosity and critical thinking, and there are many avenues for roleplaying activities that teach the importance of sustainability. Using action toys, kids can be anything they want to be, from farmers to explorers to environmental superheroes. Pretend play also presents a fun way to introduce eco-friendly habits that kids can adopt in their daily lives, like turning the water off while they brush their teeth or reducing their plastic footprint by opting for reusable products. From building a mini greenhouse to studying animal habitats, there are tons of playful learning ideas for indoor and outdoor fun available at, a great online resource for parents. Kids are absorbing new information all the time, especially when they’re having fun. To raise earth-conscious kids, incorporate environmental values into playtime.

(NAPSI—According to a recent EdChoice and Morning Consult poll, half of parents of school-aged children said they were very or somewhat comfortable with their children returning to school “right now.” However, when asked when they thought COVID-19 would be contained enough such that in-person education was safe, just 34 percent thought it would be before the summer. One in five thought inperson education would be safe at the beginning of the next academic year, while 30 percent said the pandemic would keep classrooms unsafe even later than that. Meanwhile, the share of school parents with a much more favorable opinion of homeschooling has risen. ...but not every day In fact, many parents indicate substantial long-term interest in hybrid education. Among all school parents, roughly two in five report their children are learning entirely online, while the rest say their children are participating in at least some in-person education. It seems a mix of in-person and online education would appeal to families even after the pandemic—45 percent would most prefer their children learn 1-4 days at home and spend the remaining time in a learning environment outside the home. They’re also choosing choice Support for school choice policies is also up. • Support for charter schools increased to 68 percent in February. Support from parents of school-aged children is especially high at 75 percent. • Young adults (72%) and Democrats (71%) are the two non-parent demographics most supportive of Educational Savings Accounts (ESAs). These let parents get public funds for private school, online learning programs, private tutoring, community college costs, higher education expenses and other approved customized learning services and materials. Middle-aged adults (70%), Black families (69%), and urbanites (69%) are also particularly supportive of ESAs. • There’s strong support for home­schooling in light of the pandemic. The share of Americans reporting COVID-19 has been “very disruptive” to their communities, family and household routines, and personal routines all rose. EdChoice is a non-partisan, nonprofit organization that serves as the clearinghouse of information related to school choice research and policy in the United States.

“Better Dead Than Divorced”

by Lukas Konandreas (Hard Work Publications)

“Twine: A Novel”

“Better dead than divorced,” responds a young wife to those who urge her to divorce her adulterous, manipulative and abusing husband, who plans to kill her. She knows about his evil intentions and she is urged to leave him. But her love, devotion and societal prejudice against divorced women make her stay. And dead she ends up by a commissioned assassin. Her cousin, a principled man, fights beyond his modest means in a corrupt system to get justice.

by Monica Duncan (Wall & Emerson, Inc.) When Juniper Kowalski, a mediocre artist and graduate of one of the best art schools in the country, gets pregnant by her married lover, she ends up back in Gobles, Michigan, living in her dead grandma’s trailer. She fears that her new life as a hotel maid, and as the best friend of a sub-rural call girl, has fulfilled some bleak fate. But Juniper’s pregnancy also ignites a will to create.

Ponce de Leon is credited with the first recorded landing and the first detailed exploration of the Florida coast. • On April 1, 1700, English pranksters begin popularizing the annual tradition of playing April Fool’s jokes. In keeping with the fun, in 1957, the BBC reported that Swiss farmers were experiencing a record spaghetti crop and showed footage of people harvesting noodles from trees. • On March 31, 1776, future first lady Abigail Adams writes to her husband urging him to “remember the ladies” when drafting a new code of laws for the fledgling nation. Abigail pondered if and how the rights of women would be addressed in an American constitution. • On April 4, 1841, only 31 days after assuming office, William Henry Harrison, the ninth president of the United States, dies at the White House.

My Thoughts Roger Miller

by Kiki Skagen Munshi

March Came In Like A Lion

And Went Out Like A Lamb

It doesn’t normally do this since our weather is idiosyncratic, not to mention headstrong and highly variable. Perhaps these two events were trying to make up for an otherwise difficult year in which rainfall has barely reached 50% of normal. In any case, it’s a beautiful spring. Enjoy it.

Being 55+ Has Its Advantages (NAPSI)—The 55-plus crowd is more active than ever, continuing to stay in the workforce longer, growing in numbers—to the tune of 73 million and counting—and exerting an even greater economic impact. In fact, 55+ers are responsible for over half of U.S. consumer spending, according to AARP, contributing to the huge upsurge in online spending during the pandemic. If you are one of these lucky ones—as in 55 or older—you may not realize that you are actually the envy of many. People in this age group can save thousands of dollars a year on everyday goods and services so make sure you know about ALL of the discounts available to you. Whether planning for long-term savings for retirement or for shortterm expenses like a post-pandemic vacation, saving money is front and center in today’s world. The good news is that there are so many great discounts created just for you that it makes it easy to save tons by paying attention to where you’re spending your money each month. Here are some “55 and over” discounts to be on the lookout for— that you might not know about: • Auto insurance: Insurance companies sometimes offer discounts for good drivers over a certain age. • Travel: It’s almost time to travel again so be sure to check for age-related discounts with major airlines, hotel chains, and rental car companies. • Restaurants: Over 55? Ask about special days, nights or menu items at your favorite fast-food or fancy restaurant—even if it’s takeout. • Wireless plans: Make sure that you are on a discounted 55+ plan—a failsafe way to save money each month. Given that 55+ consumers are spending 30% more time on mobile devices than they did a year ago, having an affordable wireless plan that provides unlimited text, talk and data with additional valuable perks is huge. Take a look at T-Mobile’s 55+ plans that it offers to customers across the United States. Verizon and AT&T, on the other hand, only offer 55+ plans for customers who live in Florida (even continued on page 12

I’ve been writing this newspaper column since August of 2004 with a few breaks, like when I crushed my shoulder and couldn’t write. Occasionally we have reprinted previous columns or taken previous columns and expanded on them for one reason or another. Some weeks I decide on a subject for my next column almost before I’ve finished the present one. Once in a while though, I seem to get writer’s block which apparently happened to me this week. I spent many hours thinking of what my next column would be with no ideas that could take me more than about fifty words. Finally, a Roger Miller song kept entering my brain. It wouldn’t go away, so here we are with a column about Roger Dean Miller. My very good and long-time friend Don Ray grew up in Burbank, California. He invited me to join him for his prom which was at the Beverly Hilton, for his graduation which was at the Hollywood Bowl. Boy, was I impressed! On one of the weekends that I stayed with his family, we decided to try getting in line for the Johnny Carson Show. That idea was hopeless. However, we got to see the Roger Miller Show. I had seen it on television and really liked Roger Miller’s songs. They were easy to remember and many of them were a bit whacky. I was a teenager and it was the mid-1960s, so the time was right for me to see Roger Miller in person. We sat in his audience and watched him do foolish things. I suspect he was drunk when he bounced around the stage like a gorilla. He was known at that time to be a heavy smoker and a heavy drinker. His knick-name was Wild Child because the people who were responsible for getting him to complete song writing or recording sessions had a horrible time with him. Apart from all of his antics Roger Miller wrote many top-rated songs. Some are well known as sung by him and others were covered by other singers. Did you know he played a big part in Disney’s Robin Hood? Do you remember the song King of the Road? Did you know he wrote the music for the Broadway play about Huck Finn, Big River? Some have categorized Roger Miller as a Country Music Artist. However, if you listen to his entire catalog of songs you will realize that his music covered many areas and did them all justice. Looking at the list of awards that he received shows what a genius this man was. Roger Miller received many awards during his lifetime and was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame three years after his death at age 56 from lung and throat cancer. In addition to 11 Grammy Awards, Roger Miller won Broadway's Tony Award for writing the music and lyrics for Big River, which won a total of 7 Tony's including best musical in 1985. He was voted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame in 1973 and the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1995. Miller won 11 Grammy Awards. In Erick, Oklahoma where he grew up, a thoroughfare was renamed "Roger Miller Boulevard" and a museum dedicated to Miller was built on the road in 2004. Roger Miller had a hectic personal life because of the cigarettes, drugs and alcohol he was addicted to and he freely admitted that they were a problem for his relationships. However, I didn’t have to know him personally, and I’m not one of his eight children, who I feel bad for, so I will just remember Roger Miller for his music. The Roger Miller song that I couldn’t get out of my head? I didn’t think of the entire song. I only thought, Dang me, Dang me, they ought to take a rope and hang me. High from the highest tree, Woman would you weep for me. It kept coming into my brain over and over for hours at a time. Here is the entire song without the special Roger Miller sound effects. Dang Me Song by Roger Miller Well, here I sit high, gettin' ideas Ain't nothing but a fool would live like this Out all night and runnin' wild Woman sittin' home with a month-old child Dang me, dang me They oughta take a rope and hang me High from the highest tree Woman, would you weep for me? (Actually Roger Miller put in a lot of sounds here that help complete the feeling of the song.) Just sittin' around drinkin' with the rest of the guys Six rounds bought, and I bought five And I spent the groceries and half the rent Like fourteen dollars and twenty-seven cents Dang me, dang me They oughta take a rope and hang me High from the highest tree Woman, would you weep for me? Roses are red and violets are purple Sugar is sweet and so is maple surple Well I'm the seventh out of seven sons My pappy's a pistol, I'm a son-of-a-gun Well, dang me, dang me They oughta take a rope and hang me High from the highest tree Woman, would you weep for me? I tell people that I can write this column because I have thoughts . We all have thoughts. This week, my primary thoughts were apparently about Roger Miller. These are my Thoughts.

Lessons Learned From Women Business Owners Beating The Odds

(StatePoint) Women-owned small businesses are an economic driving force. Today, nearly 13 million women-owned businesses nationwide employ 9.4 million workers and earn $1.9 trillion in revenue. Overwhelmingly impacted by the pandemic, 71% of women-owned small businesses reported a loss in revenues or sales in 2020, according to a recent study. Beyond cutting costs and applying for federal resources, women-owned businesses and entrepreneurs of color have had to get more creative than ever to navigate the uncertain economy. Consider these four lessons learned from women entrepreneurs who are beating the odds. 1. Seek alternative funding sources: In addition to tapping traditional bank loans, connect with a nonprofit Community Development Financial Institution, or CDFI, which offers low-cost capital with friendly repayment terms. Roxanne Best, owner of Roxtography, says she’s been able to stay afloat thanks to low-interest loans from Northwest Native Development Fund, a CDFI supporting tribal communities that received a grant from Wells Fargo’s Open for Business Fund, a roughly $420 million small business recovery effort. To help entrepreneurs stay open and support local jobs, the initiative is engaging CDFIs and nonprofits across the U.S. to provide women and diverse entrepreneurs with increased access to flexible capital and training. “We have been so inspired by the determination and perseverance of the many women business owners who we’ve had an opportunity to support. We made a way to work together with the small business community to offer a mix of resources that enable a sustainable and equitable road to recovery,” says Jenny Flores, head of Small Business Growth Philanthropy at Wells Fargo. 2. Make time for a business plan: 2020 taught us to plan for the unexpected, reinforcing that a business plan is critical for any small business. Tamil Maldonado Vega and her husband, owners of Raíces Brewing Co., say they don’t regret opening a Latino craft brewery right before the pandemic. While they have had hard times like everyone else during closures and due to limits on seating and space, they felt prepared to handle those challenges thanks to a strong business plan, which they developed with the help of their banker. 3. Pivot from crisis to opportunity: Looking for new income streams? Being flexible while staying true to your business can help increase the chances of success. Kadijatu Ahene, owner of Dija’s Touch Designs, specializes in African print designs. During the pandemic, she shifted to an online model and expanded into making stylish personal protection equipment for first responders. 4. Find strength in community: Ranjana Hans, owner of Raw Roots Turmeric, says her community has supported her health and wellness business throughout the pandemic, and she’s learned the benefits of asking loyal customers to promote her products in their social networks. “I have always thought that having strong connections enriched my life, and over the course of this year, that’s become even more evident.” Susan Wallace, head of Small Business Lending Operations at Wells Fargo, says businesses can find more tips and resources for navigating the pandemic at the bank’s Small Business Resource Center at “It’s important for women business owners to understand that they don’t need to go it alone. Lean into networking and establishing relationships with fellow entrepreneurs, seek advice and counsel from others, including financial advisors, and know there is support out there,” says Wallace.

Chef’s Corner A Love Affair With Lamb I seldom prepared or served lamb until I tasted Australian lamb. The tenderness and variety of cuts of Australian lamb opens up the opportunity to serve lamb all year long, not just in the spring. I love slowly braising lamb shanks, marinading and flash-frying lamb chops, and using ground lamb in stews, sauces and forming them into patties. Lamb is the meat from young sheep that are less than a year old. Americans eat far less of this delicious meat than

people in other countries. It’s often a case of not knowing how to select the best cuts of lamb or misinformation about the meat having a strong “gamey” flavor. Current labeling laws often allow a confusing number of packaging terms as it pertains to lamb, including “natural,” “pasture-raised” or “grass-fed.” These terms are allowed even though the animal may not spend any time in a natural setting, in a pasture or grazing on grass. The label to look for to purchase the best-quality lamb meat is either “100% grass-fed,” “organic-100% grass-fed lamb” or “100% grassfed.” This type of lamb has a buttery, tender quality.

Australian lamb can be found in most American markets and is generally available in five different cuts: the shoulder, rack, shank/breast, loin and leg. “Rack of lamb” usually refers to a rib cut that includes nine ribs and can be split into rib roasts. Lamb “chops” can come from several different cuts. For example, “rib chops” come from the rib, and “loin chops” come from the loin. You might also see “blade” and “arm” chops in the meat section of the grocery; these chops come from the shoulder. Sirloin chops come from the leg. Additionally, many stores sell lamb that has already continued on page 11

Vintage Sign

Vintage advertising signs, figures, toys, printed textiles, food tins and labeled bottles are all selling at higher and higher prices. Large signs with pictures of flags, Lady Liberty, figural packages, tins, toys and almost anything with a famous company logo that is in great condition is selling over-estimate at auctions. Online bidding has made it possible to offer advertising pieces to an international market with many bidders. This tin black and white sign in a wooden frame was used to advertise a man who repaired phonographs and sewing machines in the early 1900s. A decorator or collector could hang this vintage sign in a living room

Unusual advertising pieces are considered folk art or “interesting” and “decorative,” although in the 1950s ads were only used in kitchens, playrooms or lavatories. Today they are featured as art, which is why this sign sold for over $1,000. or kitchen. The eye-catching, 30-by-21-inch sign auctioned for $1,080 in Massachusetts at Eldred's Auctioneers. ***

The stories were first published in a book in 1913. Seventy-nine books of Uncle Wiggily stories were published. Garis was a prolific writer and wrote stories for several other series of books under pseudonyms. Uncle Wiggily books with 10 stories sell for about $5 to $10 each.

We’re going to help hide eggs...

John Steinbeck, the author of some of America's most respected classical literature, grew up in the Salinas Valley in central California. It is said that many of the stories he wrote concerning the Salinas of his time, reminded the people of the valley of things which they would rather forget. The Grapes of Wrath, one of Steinbeck's more potent commentaries, censored and banned during his lifetime, is one example. Yet far later in time, the once criticized author was, in memorable contrast, honored by the creation of the John Steinbeck Center in the city of Salinas. Which shows us what? For one, that what we would rather forget can actually, in the end, have significant value. One of humanity's less admirable traits is to avoid facing a crisis. Most people would rather forget, hoping it will go away. Another way to avoid facing a problem or crisis is denial: the problem doesn't exist in the first place. Steinbeck was good at expressing a crisis through the medium of storytelling, and although many people recoiled at some of his stories, the problems he exposed, including others in our world, have an enduring tendency to continue to make themselves apparent. One way they become apparent is when any number of noses are rubbed in the evidence; rubbed in it overtly. Then one has to face it, finally. What one individual or many people would rather forget or deny eventually forces them to respond and scramble at a late hour to respond competently. Therein lies one value: being forced to be responsible; to learn responsibility whether one likes it or not. And freedom is not possible without responsibility. Oh how Americans, my own people, shout about freedom, yet in stark contradiction run away from the various problems and crises which, decade after decade, erode their freedoms. Superb escape artists they are, living in prisons of distraction. Other forms of escape are apathy and disempowerment, whether presidents, elected representatives, judges, professors, doctors, or common laborers and stay-at-home moms. A key word above is competence. Its opposite, incompetence, is often concealed by secrecy, and when a crisis erupts incompetence can mean doom. Organizations large and small conceal all sorts of things to hide the organization's sense of overwhelm, disorder, and lack of experience in facing whatever crisis may be at hand. A government is an organization; so too government agencies. A business is an organization. Marriage is an organization. A family is an organization. Religion. Medicine. The daily news. Science (so called). I believe that the number of and severity of many current crises is directly proportional to the existing level of incompetence in the above-mentioned organizations, whose knee-jerk reaction when a problem first surfaces is to conceal it, or attempt to. Ignoring it is another response. A good example is alcoholism, and although excessive drinking is hard to hide, one of the first common responses to alcoholism within a marriage or a family is to hide it from those outside the family. Organizations are made up of people, obviously, whose levels of competence rely on education and experience. Yet certain loud politicos in American society actually condemn, indirectly of course, a good education. In doing so, they repeat something which historians have seen before; over the course of American history, various eras of anti-intellectualism have come and gone. Even the most intelligent and capable forms of education, reason and rational thinking were sent running by popular movements in the society at large. It's probably

What They Would Rather Forget

Solution page 11 not surprising to some of my readers to hear, here, that we're experiencing one now, and a brilliant piece of literature produced in 2008, Susan Jacoby's The Age of American Unreason, expresses this clearly. The title says it all in few words. And in her book, Jacoby spends some time recounting the work of Richard Hofstadter, who wrote Anti-Intellectualism in American We, published in the 1960s in the wake of the McCarthy era. Hofstadter's work looks at those periods in American history when education and learning, and the intellectual life which accompanies them, were suppressed, ignored, rejected, discriminated against, and run our of town. My own observation about our current predicament is posed in a simple question: has no one noticed of late how stupidity

has become popular? Also note the not-too-recent criticism against "elites," well-educated "snobs" whose several degrees from well-endowed universities prevent them from appreciating the troubles and concerns of the common people. Of course there always lies a kernel of truth in such widely advertised criticism, but when one realizes the motives driving the critics, power and hegemony, one sees through the masquerade. Yet it has been an effective masquerade, and one sorely obvious result has been an increase in crises, one after another, and growing larger as time goes on. Our organizations need to be staffed by intelligent, welleducated, experienced women and men dedicated to the wellbeing of humanity, who have the breadth of understanding and competence to prevent

problems, and also effectively deal with problems and crises when they arise. Right? And one of the ways in which American citizens can help assure competence in facing crises is to question authority. Question authority? Yes, although not in a superficial adolescent way but in the deepest sense of the concept. Questioning authority, not following, means to learn, to be dedicated to learning and to education in the deepest of senses; an innate strong interest in the truth, strong enough not to be crushed by dogma. The well-known philosopher of the 20th century, J. Krishnamurti, said long ago that authority denies learning and that followers never learn in the real sense of the word. And in that simplistic following, a credulous and lazy public only deepens whatever crisis or

problem may be at hand. One of Steinbeck's recent biographers titled his work on the life of John Steinbeck Angry at the World. John Steinbeck was ever angry at the world because of its injustices and his stories were, in part, an attempt to educate the reader. How often is my reader angry at the world? Which actually brings up a rather beautiful principle once conveyed to me by a wise woman: "anger is a fire which illumines the dark spaces." Steinbeck's anger illumined many dark places through his carefully crafted, experienced writings. But this principle is expressed here with a caveat. Anger is a powerful force which can drive someone or a group to accomplish much, but in the end it is destructive. Mohandas Gandhi, the revered statesman of the 20th century, whose work freed India of the

British Crown, once said that one of the greatest lessons he had to learn during the Independence movement was to "conserve his anger." And George W. Bush has lamented that in the aftermath of the 9-11 attack, he allowed his anger to drive him, which has ultimately led to remorse. In facing problems and crises, in being reminded of the things we want to forget - disease, poverty, lies, incompetence and so many other issues, then, what should we do? And how? Forget them and avoid those who remind us? Completely censor and silence those who criticize the deliberate attempts to conceal them? Deny that they exist? Or recognize any problem or crisis as valuable and attend to it competently, responsibly, with patience, with a desire to learn, and with care and love?

California Commentary

A California Wealth Tax Would Do Major Harm Last week, a few ultraprogressive legislators and a radical public employee labor organization proposed a new wealth tax which they claim would raise approximately $22 billion a year annually. Although the tax would be imposed only on the super wealthy, its downstream consequences would be felt by all Californians no matter their income or bank balance. Here’s what normal people should know about this proposal. First, it would indeed be a tax on the wealth of some of the richest Californians. According to the proponents, the tax would be equal to 1% of a person’s “household wealth” if that person had wealth of $50 million or more. It would also grab 1.5% of wealth over $1 billion. According to the proponents, there are only 169 billionaires in California. Therefore, they argue, the vast majority of Californians would not feel the sting. The tax hike proposal was introduced last week by Alex Lee, California’s youngest member of the Assembly. Lee is 25 years old and still lives with his mother in the San Francisco Bay area. The socalled “California Tax on Extreme Wealth” is also sponsored by California Federation of Teachers who, in addition to refusing to let its members go back to the classrooms, has never met a tax it didn’t like. There are so many problems with this measure, it’s hard to know where to begin. First, even for those who cry “eat the rich” the question is why do we want our state taxes to go even higher? California already has the highest income tax rate in America, the highest state sales tax rate in America and the highest gas tax in America. And despite claims that Proposition 13 has resulted in low property taxes, that just isn’t true. California ranks 17th out of 50 states in per capita property tax collections. Second, California doesn’t need the revenue. Tax revenue is more than $10 billion above projections and we already have a $22 billion surplus, even during COVID. Moreover, compared to fiscal 2019-20, revenues are $34 billion higher than in the months before the pandemic. Add to that the $100 billion collected from the federal recovery packages, with

by Jon Coupal

another $150 billion on the way. Given that California is awash in revenue, most citizens would rightfully question the need for a new multi-billion-dollar tax hike. Third, there is a real problem with trying to implement a wealth tax. A wealth tax differs from income or sales taxes because it taxes assets regardless of whether they are sold, traded or earn a dividend. Unlike general income or capital gains, the determination of wealth is reliant on the market value of assets, which often cannot be valued until they are sold or at least appraised. Given that wealth taxes are imposed annually, would this law require those who meet the wealth threshold to maintain a rolling balance sheet? Indeed, would all taxpayers have to disclose the value of their property, retirement accounts and other assets to prove they didn’t meet the threshold? A wealth tax not only violates the basic principles of fairness, but it is highly impractical, difficult to enforce, and would result in tax avoidance strategies that only accountants would love. Fourth, why spit in the faces of those who produce the lion’s share of California’s income tax? Currently, California is overly reliant on a handful of high earning individuals who pay the top 13.3% rate. One-half of one percent of all California taxpayers contribute over 40% of all income tax receipts. What will those residents do when a new wealth tax grabs a slice of everything they own, on top of the annual 13.3% personal income tax? Most likely, move to a state that imposes neither a wealth tax nor an income tax. Those states include Nevada (not a long way to go), Texas, Florida and Tennessee. Fifth, given California’s welldeserved reputation of being anti-business and anti-taxpayer, it would be foolish to become the only state that also taxes total household wealth. Although other socialist politicians — including Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren – have embraced the idea, this might be too radical except for the most progressive political leaders. In fact, Governor Gavin Newsom has stated he would oppose such a tax — at least continued on page 12

® Dear EarthTalk: Besides generating seasonal allergens, do any plants actually reduce air quality or cause air pollution? -- Mike T., San Juan, PR While many of us thought Ronald Reagan sounded crazy back in 1981 when he told America that “trees cause more pollution than automobiles do,” the then-President may have been on to something. Researchers from the University of California at Berkeley recently unveiled the results of a study in which they determined that certain trees and plants common in Southern California off-gas natural yet nevertheless harmful volatile organic compounds (VOCs)—to attract pollinators, protect against environmental stressors, and repel herbivores—especially during the hottest months of the year. This so-called particulate matter pollution is not only dangerous in and of itself to breathe in as the tiny molecules can get lodged in the lungs, but it also leads to the formation of ground-level ozone and smog. While Reagan’s comment may have been an utter falsehood back then, who knew it would take the electrification of the transport sector to make it actually ring true today? The only way researchers could have any way of knowing that these plants are a significant contributor to air pollution would be by the elimination of the vast majority of fossil-fuel-derived “background noise” that we are no longer subject to as we breathe in the air around the streets of California—where the nation’s strictest automotive fuel efficiency standards have driven many to Teslas, Bolts, Volts, Leafs, Polestars, e-Trons, Priuses and other green rides—and elsewhere.

Palms are among several tree species that off-gas natural but potentially harmful air pollution when the weather heats up. Credit: Pixabay. The researchers found that over the past two decades, concentrations of these VOCs fell by 50 percent between 1999 and 2012, and then to undetectable levels during the cooler months thereafter. But when the mercury rose, even without additional automotive emissions, so did concentrations of airborne VOCs. Four out of five excessive heat days (with air temps topping 100°) led to unsafe VOC levels outside. With transportation emissions off the hook as the culprit, researchers looked to the plant community for answers. One of the worst offenders is the iconic and ubiquitous fan palm, but sycamores, poplars, willows and many oaks and pines also off-gas their fair share of VOCs when the weather heats up — which will be happening more frequently as we warm the atmosphere with greenhouse gases. Backyard planners and landscape designers concerned about air quality and the environment might want to steer clear of these species when choosing plants. “I am not suggesting that we get rid of plants, but I want people who are thinking about large-scale planting to pick the right trees,” says Ronald Cohen, the Berkeley atmospheric chemist who led the research effort. “They should pick low-emitting trees instead of highemitting trees.” If you have the luxury of choosing which trees to plant and/or replace, and you care about your community’s air quality, some good choices include alders, magnolias, manzanitas, birches, hazelnuts, gingkos, apples and elms.

Howdy From Lake Cuyamaca “Dusty Britches” here lurking around the old bullrush with “Tres Dados”, and “Skunk”. We call “Tres Dados”… ”Tres Dados” because he used to be a cabinet maker and was self-taught on a table saw. Non-the-less “Tres Dados” is a good person and well intentioned even though he lives in a tent and doesn’t know what a Starbucks is… he boils his own coffee in a pot on the stove and sifts the grounds through his teeth… and they look like it. We have had some wintry weather lately, but with a forecast of warmer-dryer days. Fishing is picking up. I believe the trout coming out now are what should have come out after our February 9th plant. They were probably obeying our governor’s “stay at home” order until now. The bite is back on. I am seeing rainbow trout coming out up to 8 pounds. A lightning trout was just weighed at a little over 4 pounds. The bass bite usually comes later due to weather and temperatures. We have signs of good crappie and bluegill numbers. We will be stocking both catfish and trout mid-April. The 3,000 pounds of Mt. Lassen trout will be in preparation of the inaugural Western Outdoor News “Cuyamaca Trout Cast” tournament which will be upon us before we know it… the weekend of April 24-25. And the 750 pounds of channel catfish is a bit of the luck of the Irish to get. We have searched to find not many catfish farms around southern California don’t use Colorado river water to raise their catfish. The California Pacific Aqua Farms don’t. Their water comes from geothermally heated deep water wells, and we are damn lucky to be able to get our catfish from these folks. We take a chance of in-porting Quagga Mussels and/or Zebra Clams if the fish are raised in Colorado River water. If you are bringing some young anglers up with you, ask to see our fingerling trout in the boat house… we raise them from eggs. The Canada Geese are pairing up to create some goslings, coyotes are out and yipping all around, the redwinged blackbirds are back, as well as the grackle, starling, sparrow, woodpecker, raccoons (after dark), and those damn cormorants. “Tres Dados” just wandered in to make some shelving for us … not using a table saw. It looks like he spent the night with the raccoons inside a wet and muddy culvert. The grass mud stuck to his hair looks like an adobe cabin from the 1800’s and puts a little

damper on his appearance . If you see him wandering about, just say “hi”… or wave… from a istance… no telling when he showered last, or changed his underwear… or if he even has any. Let your imagination run wild with that one. Our young Labrador has found new denizens to munch while hiking down a trail… goose poop… they are plentiful and my wife has given up yelling at him for it. Oh!!! And she found her sock she had been looking for… he threw it up… before, he would poop it out… see, he’s getting better!!! Happy Trails to you until we meet again. If it is your job to eat a frog, it is best done first thing in the morning. And if it is your job to eat two frogs, it is best to eat the biggest one first… — Mark Twain Tight lines and Bent Rods… take a kid fishin… Dusty Britches

Inside The Largest And Fastest Covid-19 Vaccine Operation (Family Features) By plane, boat and foot, 2 billion COVID-19 vaccines are making their way to some of the most remote corners of the globe as part of the largest and fastest vaccine operation in history. To help ensure an equitable global vaccine distribution and end the pandemic as quickly as possible, the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) and partners have been called upon by GAVI, the global vaccine alliance, to lead procurement and distribution efforts for the COVAX Facility, helping vaccines

reach 180 countries by the end of 2021. The largest vaccine buyer in the world, UNICEF reaches almost half the population of children with routine immunizations every year and has 75 years of experience responding to public health emergencies around the globe. Before COVID-19 was declared a pandemic, the organization was already providing support, and has delivered more than 200 million masks to more than 100 countries. From Warehouse to Health Facility From its humanitarian warehouse that can deliver supplies anywhere within 72 hours, UNICEF is expected to transport up to 850 tons of COVID-19 vaccines per month in 2021, more than double its average vaccine shipment. To support this increase, the organization established the Humanitarian Airfreight Initiative where more than 10 leading airlines have committed to prioritizing shipments of COVID-19 vaccines, essential medicines, medical devices and other critical supplies. The organization is also working with governments, helping prepare their infrastructures to rapidly receive vaccines. To store and preserve doses, 70,000 cold-chain fridges, including solar fridges, will be installed in health facilities mainly in Africa by end of year. Protecting Communities To promote safe vaccinations, health care workers are partaking in training on COVID-19 vaccine storage, handling and administration. The organization expects to provide 1 billion syringes for injections and 5 million safety boxes for proper needle disposal. Each safety box carries 100 syringes and helps prevent accidental needle injuries that could potentially transmit blood borne diseases. A Long Road to Recovery For children and families around the world, this recovery effort is crucial. According to UNICEF data, this is the first year that poverty rates are expected to increase in 25 years. Additionally, 6.7 million children are at risk of severe malnutrition due to food insecurity caused by COVID-19, and over 1 billion children were forced out of school since lockdowns began. Equitable access to a vaccine helps mitigate public health and economic impacts of the pandemic. Only once the spread slows and stops can people begin to reimagine and build a better future for children and families. This mission takes a joint effort, starting in laboratories and warehouses and ending in local communities. To learn more about keeping safe or help fund the operation, visit

beautiful orange color, they add moisture to baked goods. • Too much flour makes for dense, gummy baked goods. Always measure your flour correctly by using a scale or fluffing the flour and sprinkling it into your measuring cup before leveling off. • Don’t over-mix your batter. It will activate the gluten in the flour and cause your baked goods to go from tender and airy to tough and overly chewy. Mix your dry and wet ingredients until just combined. • Use room temperature butter and cream cheese – left out of the refrigerator for about 30 to 60 minutes. They should show a slight indent when pressed, yet still hold shape. Remember that consistency is important when creaming butter with sugar and it should be visibly fluffy and not cling to the side of your mixing bowl.

continued from page 6 been ground and can be used to make burgers, meat loaf or sauces. 100% grass-fed lamb is a significant source of B vitamins and niacin. It also is an excellent source of omega-3 fats, dependent upon the diet of the mother and the lamb. Grass-fed lamb has been shown to average at least 25% more omega-3 fats than conventionally fed lamb. Consumption of omega-3 fats has been associated with decreased risk of inflammation and heart disease. In Australia, where lamb is raised in abundance and eaten regularly, recent studies show it as the top omega-3 food in the daily diet. In regions of some countries without easy access to fish, lamb has sometimes been shown to provide the most omega-3s of any other food in the diet.

Healthy Blood Pressure

California Commentary

recommend lowering your blood pressure if it's between 120/80 and 130/80 and you have other risk factors for heart or blood vessel disease. High blood pressure is often "silent," meaning it doesn't usually cause symptoms but can damage your body, especially your heart over time. Having poor heart health also increases the risk of severe illness from COVID-19. While you can't control everything that increases your risk for high blood pressure - it runs in families, often increases with age and varies by race and ethnicity - there are things you can do. Consider these tips from experts with the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute's (NHLBI) The Heart Truth program: 1. Know Your Numbers. Everyone ages 3 and older should get their blood pressure checked by a health care provider at least once a year. Expert advice: 30 minutes before your test, don't exercise, drink caffeine or smoke cigarettes. Right before, go to the bathroom. During the test, rest your arm on a table at the level of your heart and put your feet flat on the floor. Relax and don't talk. 2. Eat Healthy. Follow a hearthealthy eating plan, such as NHLBI's Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH). For example, use herbs for flavor instead of salt and add one fruit or vegetable to every meal. 3. Move More. Get at least 2 1/2 hours of physical activity each week to help lower and control blood pressure. To ensure you're reducing your sitting throughout the day and getting active, try breaking your activity up. Do 10 minutes of exercise, three times a day or one 30-minute session on five separate days each week. Any amount of physical activity is better than none and all activity counts. 4. Aim for a Healthy Weight. If you're overweight, losing just 3-5% of your weight can improve blood pressure. If you weigh 200 pounds, that's a loss of 6-10 pounds. To lose weight, ask a friend or family member for help or to join a weight loss program with you. Social support can help keep you motivated. 5. Manage Stress. Stress can increase your blood pressure and make your body store more fat. Reduce stress with meditation, relaxing activities or support from a counselor or online group. 6. Have a Healthy Pregnancy. High blood pressure during pregnancy can harm the mother and baby. It also increases a woman's risk of having high blood pressure later in life. Talk to your health care provider about high blood pressure. Ask if your blood pressure is normal and track it during and after pregnancy. If you're planning to become pregnant, start monitoring it now. 7. Stop Smoking. The chemicals in tobacco smoke can harm your heart and blood vessels. Seek out resources, such as smoke free hotlines and text message programs, that offer free support and information. 8. Work with Your Doctor. Get help setting your target blood pressure. Write down your numbers every time you get your blood pressure checked. Ask if you should monitor your

for now. (We remember how he equivocated on the split-roll property tax only to jump in and back it at the last moment). Finally, backers of the wealth tax base their arguments less on the need for more revenue – which they cannot justify anyway – but rather the need to address wealth “inequality.” They argue that these super wealthy individuals have the means and others do not and so we need to redistribute the wealth. This is precisely the foundation of Marxism. Do we really want to go down that road?
