WE-S690A 92036 Anza-Borrego Foundation's 5th Grade Environmental Education Camp Receives Heller Foundation Grant Borrego Springs, CA - Anza-Borrego Foundation's 5th Grade Environmental Education Camp has received a $10,000 grant from The Heller Foundation of San Diego at Union Bank. The grant will help to provide intensive hands-on environmental science learning opportunities for 300 urban and rural students from San Diego and Imperial Counties. The 3-day Environmental Education camps give 5th grade students intimate contact with the natural and cultural resources of Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, California's largest state park. The overnight outdoor adventure exposes campers to desert ecosystems, careers in the science and social-science fields, and opportunities for team building and positive self-growth, as they connect with nature and their classmates. "ABF is most appreciative of The Heller Foundation's generous investment in our program. With their support, we are shaping a new generation of conservation ambassadors to care for the fragile resources of Anza-Borrego Desert State Park ," said ABF's Institute manager, Sally Theriault. Since 2004, Anza-Borrego Foundation (ABF) has conducted camp sessions entirely free of charge for 5th grade underserved students, where 50% or more are eligible for free lunch programs and who rarely get recreational opportunities in wild nature. In addition to their grant for the 2009-10 school year, The Heller Foundation of San Diego at Union Bank provided funding for the pilot year and again in 2005. ABF has reached more than 1,500 students, from 16 schools in 6 districts, with classroom and field-based activities designed to instill an appreciation for nature, scientific study, and the physical and mental benefits of nature recreation. Anza-Borrego Foundation, founded in 1967, is a non-profit educational organization and is the sole cooperating association of Anza-Borrego Desert State Park. ABF's mission is to protect and preserve the natural landscapes, wildlife habitat, and cultural heritage of Anza-Borrego Desert State Park for the benefit and enjoyment of present and future generations. Anza-Borrego Foundation's Institute provides classes to more than 3,000 adults and children each year, covering topics such as botany, astronomy, paleontology, native cultures, desert wildlife, and more.

Salvation Army Captain Gerald Pigeon does outreach in the area, working with the schools to get names of needy families so The Salvation Army can help with meals and toys at Christmas, food baskets, gift cards and other support throughout the year. We have that relationship, that communication already in place. The people of the Julian area are always ready to come together, work as a team, help others and help each other." Don Read, Director of Emergency Disaster Service, The Salvation Army Sierra del Mar Division. "The Salvation Army, "We rented some office space in the barn and found everyone to be so hospitable. They were always making sure we had a mug of coffee or a soft drink, and being around the delicious smells and tastes of Wynola wood-fired pizza was an added bonus. The Salvation Army hired people from the Julian area and found the entire experience of working with the community to be rewarding. There was such a sense of working together, of neighbor helping neighbod And the beauty of Julian was powerful, even in the face of the fire's dreadful devastation. Working together to restore houses and lives was rewarding." Debi Sinclair, Disaster Recovery Case Work Supervisor. In a conversation with Wynola Pizza Owner Harry Horner "My wife and I saw on news that Salvation Army donations down, so we decided to do this! We decided to hold a special benefit night and give 25% of the proceeds to The Salvation Army - a way to give back for all they did for us, for our entire community! When people come to help out after a disaster, many don't know where to start. The Salvation Army has it figured out. The people were so down to earth, so genuine, cared so much... and they knew exactly what to do first, second and on and on Well, it's been my first hand experience with the involvement with the Salvation Army after the Cedar Fire - Julian lost about 500 homes in that fire. Running the restaurant, we could see the number of people who came through who were really in need. I think the way the Salvation Army approached the needs of those who suffered losses showed me that they were really sensitive to what people truly needed. My impression was that they were one of the most outstanding suppliers of help, most aware of real NEED.

Woodstock, Vt. - Nature lovers in California have a convenient new tool to help them identify species. Based on updated and expanded versions of the best-selling series of National Audubon Society field guides, Audubon Wildflower California puts the most authoritative and comprehensive information about the region's wildflowers at the fingertips of iPhone and iPod Touch users. Now available in the reference section of the apps store in iTunes along with other apps in the Audubon Guide series, Audubon Wildflowers California provides a wealth of interactive information in a mobile package, giving the state's wildflower lovers a fun and exciting experience that makes outings richer, more informed and instantly sharable. "1 can't imagine a more genuinely fun and informative way to use technology to connect with nature," said Andrew Stewart, publisher of Green Mountain Digital, the electronic publishing company that created the Audubon Guide app series in alliance with the National Audubon Society. "Everyone from dedicated enthusiasts to casual nature lovers and families just looking for fun outdoor activities will enjoy having so much detailed plant life information at their fingertips.,' From Lillies to Lupines, Audubon Wildflowers California covers more than 930 species of flowers found throughout California. Each species in the app is described with rich and detailed information updated from National Audubon Society field guide books, including details such as appearance, range, flowering, habitat, and more. All of this is accessed wirelessly and in real time through interactive and intuitive search features with parameters such as common and scientific names, family, shape, range, habitat, color, and size. Additional features include hundreds of professional color photos, range maps for each species, and a gee-location search function that allows users to find which wildflower species are located in any zip code in the state. Advanced technical innovations include the ability to create personalized life lists, post GPS-enabled flower sighting lists, and upload user-created photo albums. Audubon Wildflowers California is among the latest apps in the expanding Audubon Guides series, which upon its launch last month enlisted new technologies to spread the appreciation of nature. "This is a giant leap forward in connecting people with the nature that surrounds them," said John Flicker, president of the National Audubon Society. "And it's the first step in building a commitment to protecting the wonders these apps will help a new generation discover and savor."

They are not only helping the person who lost a home, but helping the community. A little hope, a little pleasure. Hey, we've got this coupon. Let's go out to eat. It helped the community. A shot in the arm, but recognition on Salvation Army's part of the real need. I expected maybe necessities - clothes and water, but they thought also of our quality of life and our ability to hang in there and recover- restoring faith and hope. My wife and I own this little center, we have a small office complex and we rented a couple of small offices to the Salvation Army. They were there a year, year and a half after the fire, helping people with their rebuilding projects, tying up loose ends (Penny) there 'til the very end. When it was time to leave, Penny asked The Salvation Army if she could stay a little longer, to clean up all these things that weren't quite wrapped up And they did; they kept her until she got all her work done. The Salvation Army has the answer, from what I saw first- hand in the Julian community- you hear about "bureaucratic this and bureaucratic that with other organizations," and we didn't see that with The Salvation Army ! " Due to the economy their revenue is down and their needs are up for helping families. This is our opportunity to give back to a great organization, all the while enjoying great food and music! Wynola Pizza is so much more than Pizza. Come enjoy entrees, appetizers, desserts, and specials from our own renowned chef, Kue Her. Come on out on Tuesday January 19th from 5:00 pm to 8:00 and help support the organization that has helped the community when we needed it. It's easy and filling. Maximum Sentence Handed Out For lan Kinney's Killer Shanon Shimp at sentencing. photo from KNSD 7/39 January 8, 2010 - Superior Court Judge Herbert J. Exarhos levied a 16-year prison sentence on Shannon Shimp, who killed lan Kinney and Joseph Edwards in a drunken-driving crash just this side of Ramona on July 22, 2008. Shimp, 36, was convicted of gross vehicular manslaughter and driving under the influence after a trial in September. Shimp was intoxicated and had methamphetamine in his system when the flatbed truck he was driving plowed into the Lexus driven by lan, on a stretch of state Route 78. Witnesses said Shimp was driving east on Route 78 around 6 p.m. on July 22, 2008, when he crossed into the westbound lane and tried to pass three vehicles. Tessa Medearis, lan's girlfriend, was injured in the wreck. She remembers Shimp's pickup on top of the car she was in. Medearis said, "1 went through the most horrible thing anyone should ever have to go through. I had to watch my boyfriend die in front of my face, not being able to do anything about it." lan parents Scott and Debbie both addressed the court before sentencing. "How many people have to be killed before our laws change to protect these innocent victims? Why do we have a 'War on Terror", a War Against Drugs' and not 'A War Against DUI Murders'? We lose more people every day in this country to the thoughtless actions of drunk drivers then we do in our war in the Middle East." pleaded Debbie Scott told the court - "lan was our baby, youngest of three sons of which we are very proud, lan was 14 in 2003 when our home burned to the ground in the Cedar fire; lan worked beside me summers and weekends as we rebuilt our home becoming a skilled carpenter and a fair electrician. He had just been accepted into a union carpenter apprenticeship program in July of 2008. He also looked forward to continuing his higher education. Never more. lan's legacy will be his warm smile and easy laugh, his kindness to strangers, loyalty to friends, his willingness to offer his hand to make our burden lighter; his good natured and spirited horsie-back-rides with his young nieces, his self-deprecating humor and love of family.., a fully fledged humanist: a person with a strong concern for human welfare, values and dignity. " Shimp was acquitted of more serious charges of second degree murder. "I'm just so very sorry," Shimp said Friday in court. "If there was anything I could do to make things right, even if it meant give my life for theirs, I would do it in a second." Shimp's father also spoke, directly to the Kinney family, he asked for understanding, that he to was ashamed for the actions of his son of that July evening. The judge called it genuine remorse. "Still," he said "it does not change what happened that night."
