January 19, 2011 Library Has Tax Forms Available The Julian branch library has tax forms available. Last fall, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) sent post cards to tax fliers who were still mailing in their tax forms to let them know that they would no longer be mailing tax forms to individuals. This decision was made because 70% of all tax fliers now file online and do not need these items to be mailed to t he m .... ,v  . When speaking to a representative of the IRS, we found out that forms would be mailed to libraries as soon as they were printed, but because of legislative changes, there were delays in printing. The expected date of delivery is January 15 with all forms to be available by January 30. The Julian Branch has received many forms, but has not yet received the instruction books. A loyal friend laughs at your jokes when they're no t so good and sympathizes with your problems when they're not so bad. -- Arnold H. Glasow If you are interested in getting some of the more specialized forms and do not have access to the internet, please stop in at the library and we will be happy to help you find what you need on the IRS website, www.irs.gov.

She died in 1987, but I still find myself thinking of her throughout the year. Every year when we get our first snowfall; I want to call her. The first snowfall was just as exciting for her as it was for my children and me. She wanted to know about every major moment in the lives of her children and grandchildren and first snowfalls were always on the list. My Mom was born in January of 1920 at home in Denver Colorado. Her father assisted in her birth. By the time she was six months old, her family had moved to San Diego, where she spent the rest of her life, except when Dad was stationed around the country in the US Army Air Corps and later in the US Air Force. She had two older brothers, Carlton was ten years older than Mom and Bud was five years older. I once asked Mom if she had lots of dates with her brother's friends. She told me that with two older brothers watching out for her, she was lucky to get any dates. Though she had many happy memories, Mom also lived a life full of disappointment and sorrow. Though she remained one of the most positive people I've ever known; I also know the sad times she lived through. She told me that when she was a little girl she contracted Polio. My aunt, Mom's sister-in-law said Mom never had polio, so I wonder if she actually contracted Scarlet Fever, because she had heart problems her entire life. She told me how her mother set up a bed for her in the back of their car, when she was extremely weak from illness, so she could watch the world while actually being in it. That was a good memory. Others weren't so good. Mom often walked home to an empty house after school. She cried on those days thinking that the many women's clubs that Grandma belonged to were more important to Grandma than her own daughter. When Mom was nearing the end of her third year in college, heading toward a teaching degree, she was badly injured in an accident that totaled two cars and killed the horse she was riding. They were all in the same place at the same time. Mom spent six months in the hospital with a crushed leg and a total of 2 years in a cast. She had to re-learn to walk and her dreams of teaching ended. In the early 1940s Mom and Dad were married in San Diego. Though Dad had been a San Diego policeman, he was also in the Army Air Corp. reserves and they were married on a 48 hour pass. Morn told me her fond memories of their friends giving them gasoline ration cards so they could drive on their honeymoon. She also told me that when she announced her engagement to Bob; her mother had a screaming fit because she was not going to allow her daughter to marry a policeman. It wasn't the only time that Grandma, a very domineering woman tried to keep Mom from doing something that Grandma decided wasn't right. Mom and Dad enjoyed a marriage that lasted less than ten years. Dad, in the Air Force reserve was called to active duty to command a B-29 bomber in the Korean War. He died on a mission, October 31st, 1952, the same day my younger brother Clyde was born. Once again my Mom endured sorrow, and she had harder times than she should have. Grandma came to San Diego, not to help Mom, but she tried to take my sister and I away from my Mom. She was certain that Mom couldn't take care of a newborn while caring for us girls who were age five and two. Mom raised three of us by herself while working as a secretary in the 1950s and 1960s. Women have easy lives these days compared to what women had to deal with in these years. Pay was horrible for the amount of responsibilities given. Many women were treated badly with the attitude of "If you don't Ijkit leave." With bosses knowing that the older a woman got, the harder it was for her to find a job that would give her enough money; life was not easy. In the late 1970s, Mom helped to take care of her parents while working full time. Her eldest brother who lived near them, took them breakfast, wrote the checks for their bills and made sure the household ran smoothly. Mom took them dinner three times each week, and stayed with them until the 11:o'clock news was over even though she had to wake up for work by 5:30 and had to drive 15 minutes to her house before going to bed. When she tried to cut back her evenings with her parents because of exhaustion; Grandma accused Mom of being selfish. My mom was molded by her childhood experiences. Because she felt a bit neglected as a child; she worked hard at being a very caring and giving mother. Grandma told Mom that she spoiled her three children, but rather than spoil us, Mom gave us what she could. She took us to drive-in movies, summer Saturdays at the beach, weekend camping trips and Sunday evening summer barbecues. All of these entertainments were a bit more than she could afford on her widow's pension and secretary's salary, but I know that we all enjoyed them because we all did them together as a family, with occasional friends and relatives joining us for the fun. Though I've written about just some of my Mom's disappointments and sorrows, could have written of many more. One thing that has always impressed me about my Morn is that no matter how bad things seemed in her life; she knew that the world is full of people whose lives are worse, yet they continue to believe that life will get better. I often wish that I could tell my mother how much I have always admired her for her positive attitude and her joyous laughter. These are my thoughts.

I t American Teens Are Asking For A Challenge (NAPSA)--A recent survey of teenagers in the U.S. uncovered surprising insights about math and science education in America. What The Study Found For one thing, the survey, com- missioned by Intel Corporation, found the vast majority of Ameri- can teens feel confident in their own math and science abilities. But they also generally agree there's a math and science crisis in K-12 education in the United States. This suggests they may not feel personally responsible for the problem of falling math and science scores in the U.S. Instead, teens primarily attribute their lack of confidence in the United States' math and scienceabilities to a lack of work ethic and discipline on the part of others, not a lack of school fund- ing or resources, which many experts point to as the culprits. Fortunately, the teens do understand that math and science are important to their future suc- cess and express an interest in these subjects. Ninety-nine per- cent believe it's important to be good at math and science and nearly 60 percent aspire to pursue a math- or science-related career. What You Can Do There are several ways parents can help children learn science and math. Here are just a couple of suggestions: Encourage questions. En- courage kids' natural curiosity about the world. Scientists are professional question askers and relentless in their quest for answers. Offer a math- and sci- ence-friendly home. Science happens everywhere. Gardening, American teens told researchers they understand the importance of math and science for their futures. working on the car, construction, cooking and plumbing all use math and science. Encourage kids to practice predicting, mea- suring, observing and analyzing. what Others Are Doing The aim of the survey was to offer a student perspective on the complex issues facing American education today and to spark a debate about how best to chal- lenge American teens to excel in math and science. As the sponsor of the Intel Science Talent Search and the Intel International Sci- ence and Engineering Fair, Inte] recognizes math and science as critical foundations for innova- tion. Over the past decade, it has invested more than $1 billion and its employees have donated close to 3 million hours toward improv- ing education.
