Health groups hailed this as a step in the right direction to protect Americans from this widespread and dangerous pollutant. "Once met, the stronger ozone standard will prevent childhood asthma attacks, missed days of work and school, and premature deaths," says Harold P. Wimmer, National President and CEO of the American Lung Association. Breathing unhealthy levels of ozone pollution is linked to coughing, wheezing, asthma attacks, centra nervous system problems, heart problems and premature death. And children are most at risk because their lungs are still developing, according to the Lung Association. The EPA's new standard will better protect the public from these health impacts. Experts Julian Arts Guild Artist Of The Month, Evelyn Goldschmidt Evelyn Goldschmidt will be Artist of the Month at the Julian Library in February. Combining her love of nature and gardening with her passion for photography and design has long been a driving force of Evelyn's life. She received her formal training in photography at The New School in New York City, where she grew up, and has spent many years developing both her photographic and darkroom skills. As founder and owner-manager of the former Creative Custom Lab and Studio in Lag Vegas, Nevada, she has worked and taught professionally in her chosen field for many years. Now a retired high school teacher and three-year resident of Julian, California, Evelyn is an officer of the Julian Arts Guild, as well as a member of both the Borrego and Ramona Art Guilds. Her work is displayed in many San Diego area shows, as well as at the Borrego Arts Institute, and several other local galleries. Finally having the time and resources, Evelyn now devotes much of her life to her dream of being a proponent of natural imagery for her own and others' pleasure and enlightenment. Her present work concentrates on macro and black & white imagery, but she also greatly enjoys scenic and animal photography. Her photographic and artistic goal is to encourage people to view flora and fauna in extraordinary ways that might be overlooked otherwise. Growing More From Less: Meeting the 21st Century's Water Challenge (NAPS) Water, at least in the forms we need for human health, economic growth, industrial manufacturing and farming, is scarce and growing scarcer.,.Water is one of the greatest limiting factors in the world's ability to feed a growing population and among the most critical inputs in growing a successful crop. For farmers, it may also be the most variable and unpredictable. As an industry leader in water optimization or, helping crops use available water mare effectively Syngenta is helping farmers rethink water, with technologies that enable them to grow more from less. Corn hybrids that optimize the conversion of water to grain represent an important opportunity for agriculture, especially given that weather variability affects farmers, to some degree, every year. Developed by Syngenta, Agnsure Water is one of the greatest limiting Artesian corn hybrids are built with scientifically selected factors in the world's ability to feed genes that provide the crop with a growing population. Rethinking multiple modes of action for water is helping farmers to use season-long water optimization, available water more effectively. helping farmers manage gaps in rainfall that may occur throughout the season. A decade ago, when Syngenta researchers first embarked upon a journey to develop water-optimized corn hybrids, they did so with the understanding that a successful outcome would require a sophisticated understanding of how water stress affects corn at the TM gene level. In developing Artesian corn hybrids, Syngenta employs a unique scientific process to select, validate and deploy natura corn genes that help the plant optimize water. The advantage of this approach is that Artesian corn hybrids carry elite genetics that respond to water stress in multiple ways. Farmers have experienced firsthand what Syngenta research has validated: Artesian hybrids maximize yield when it rains and increase yield when it doesn't. Irrigation management represents another significant opportunity for agriculture. What began as an ambitious concept to help farmers grow more corn with less irrigation--is now a reality on farms across the Corn Belt. In an effort to help irrigated corn growers make the most of their available water, Syngenta and Lindsay Corporation developed Water+TM Intelligent Irrigation Platform, an integrated solution that enables growers to grow more corn with up to 25 percent less irrigation than other programs. While water will always be top-of-mind for growers, tools like Artesian corn hybrids and Water+ Intelligent Irrigation Platform are helping them manage their available water in revolutionary ways.

Students will be able to visit different areas in the San Dieguito River Park, see wildlife, learn about diverse habitat types from forests to wetlands, and learn about the impx)rtance of the cultural and natural resources of the watershed. "Although each watershed is unique, our intention in developing this program that it be a model for use in other watersheds in the region," said Trish Boaz, Executive Director of SDRVC. The official launch of the program is in partnership with San Diego Canyonlands and will engage students from the Cesar Chavez Club at Monroe Clark Middle School, who have been working to restore, preserve and protect their neighborhood canyons. After visiting Sikes, the students will travel to the headwaters of the San Dieguito River at Volcan Mountain near Julian, providing them with a watershed experience. Future partnerships will be with various Title 1 and other schools and organizations within and outside of the San Dieguito Watershed. "The main impediment toopening the outdoors to many students is the cost of transportation. Most schools cannot afford transportation costs, especially for a program that travels a whole watershed," said Trish Boaz, Executive Director of SDRVC. To that end, the San Diego Foundation and County Supervisor Dianne Jacob have sponsored two new passenger vehicles that will enable the Conservancy and its partners to expand their individual nature education programs throughout the entire San Dieguito Watershed and to other areas of San Diego. When not needed for this program, the vehicles are available to other conservation partners for their outdoor educational programs "San Diego County is blessed with so much amazing wildlife and natural resources, and this new program allows us to expose more kids to those treasures," said county Supervisor Dianne Jacob. "It will set them on a path to become future stewards of our great outdoors." Emily Young, Vice President of Community Impact at The San Diego Foundation, said "San Diego's outdoor environment and active community is the lifeblood of our region. We must continue to invest in projects that advance community-driven efforts to engage youth in environmental programs and develop an interconnected network of natural areas, gathering places and trails across the county so that the outdoors is easily accessible from any San Diegan's doorstep." of voters support EPA setting stricter limits on smog. e Favor Strongly Favor e Oppose across the country, including and how to protect your family's the EPA's independent scientific health and to get involved, visit advisors, leading medical www.FightingForAir.org. and health organizations, and "We will continue to push more than 1,000 health and toward a stronger standard medical professionals supported that fully protects the health of strengthening the outdated Americans,'I says Wimmer. standard. ~,,, The American public agrees: 73 percent of voters polled by the Do not dwell in the past, do not Lung Association support stricter dream of the future, concentrate the limits on smog.
