In part because with the pandemic protocols students have not had the opportunities to show their talents as they might during a normal year, with all activities being curtailed. Elizabeth Denny From The Supervisor’s Desk Notes from Supervisor Joel Anderson Law Enforcement Officers Should Receive the Covid-19 Vaccination “Shocked and disappointed.” That was the response local law enforcement had to the San Diego County Board of Supervisors voting down my proposal to immediately vaccinate law enforcement personnel. Only Supervisor Jim Desmond joined me in voting to protect cops against COVID-19. Current County criteria calls for emergency responders who perform CPR to be placed in the top tier for COVID-19 vaccinations. This includes EMTs, firefighters and lifeguards. But not law enforcement officers. County officials insist they are following the direction of the State of California, but the Governor and state officials have made it very clear that local Counties have full discretion where to tier individual groups. In fact, 27 other counties already vaccinate law enforcement officers. About 10,000 lives are saved every year because of the emergency responsiveness of law enforcement officers who routinely respond to individuals requiring medical attention and CPR measures. These officers are exposed to people that have contracted COVID-19 and, without vaccination, not only are our cops at risk, but so are their medical counterparts, their coworkers, and their families. It is important to know that there are about 4,000 front-line local law enforcement officers who would be prioritized for immediate vaccination. This includes those who patrol our streets and neighborhoods. Those opposed to allowing cops to be vaccinated now say it will put others more vulnerable, such as the elderly, at risk. And while admittedly there is a shortage of vaccine, the County of San Diego has the capacity to vaccinate 25,000 people a day and has already vaccinated about 500,000 people. By prioritizing police, we would at most delay some others receiving vaccinations by only a few days. But when law enforcement officers are infected with COVID-19 they are taken out of circulation to serve. That means less cops to respond to calls, less cops to make arrests and less cops to keep us safe. While true that if a cop is struck down with COVID-19, like firefighters and other young healthy people, they are less likely to die. But it is more likely others will die or be hurt because those law enforcement officials will not be there when you make the call that someone is breaking into your home. I am hearing from people all over my district, and throughout San Diego County, who believe our cops should be treated like other emergency first responders and given priority for vaccinations. In a poll I conducted on my website, more than 1200 individuals responded with 98% supporting this action. Join me in showing your support for our cops receiving the vaccination now.

Maas III, who heard arguments Friday afternoon from attorneys representing the state, county and the two student athletes, agreed with the plaintiffs in his written ruling that young athletes were not at greater risk of contracting or transmitting COVID-19 than their professional or collegiate counterparts. Maas wrote that he was not persuaded by arguments from the state and county that professional and collegiate teams represented a lower risk of spreading the virus due to their being far fewer pro and college teams. “The game is the same, the risk of spread is similar, the youth are already practicing and with school closures or limitations on attendance, youth are isolated,” Maas wrote. Maas briefly referenced the new guidelines issued by the state, but wrote that “competent evidence was not provided to the court in this regard” at Friday’s hearing and thus he declined “to anticipate what the (state) `may’ do in the coming week.” The ruling came hours after state leaders announced the new state guidance, which allows counties that reach the 14-case threshold to resume basketball, football, ice hockey, lacrosse, rugby, rowing/crew, soccer and water polo. Under the state guidelines, resuming football, rugby and water polo will also require weekly COVID testing of players — aged 13 and above — and coaches, with test results made available within 24 hours of a competition. Gov. Gavin Newsom said the state would absorb the cost of the required testing. The guidance applies to all forms of organized youth sports, including school and community programs, and private clubs and leagues. Newsom said the combination of school closures and the inability for youth to participate in sports has had both a physical and mental health impact, “in profound and significant and in many cases deleterious ways.” He said the downward trends in COVID cases in California prompted the state to move forward with a resumption of youth sports. “We are now confident … that we can get youth sports moving again in the state of California, get competition moving again in the state of California with, as always, caveats,” he said. “None of us are naive. … Despite those very encouraging trends, we still need to be cautious until we reach herd immunity.” San Diego County Supervisor Nathan Fletcher said the county was ready and waiting to resume youth sports safely. “We have seen considerable progress on vaccines and lower cases, and this is a positive step forward in our recovery,” he said. “I applaud Governor Newsom, and commend Ron Gladnick who has been a great partner in working with my office, the governor and our public health experts to see progress in the effort to let our kids play.” Gladnick is the head football coach of Torrey Pines High School and has been a vocal advocate for letting youth sports resume. He sent a tweet thanking Fletcher, Supervisor Jim Desmond and former Republican candidate for governor John Cox for working across ideological lines on the issue. “It’s awesome when people can put small differences aside to serve a higher purpose like kids,” he wrote.

Not only do healthy dietary patterns help maintain good health, they also reduce the risk of chronic diseases throughout all stages of life. The United States Department of Agriculture's Dietary Guidelines for Americans, 2020-2025, and nutrition experts agree it is vital to establish healthy eating habits early and maintain them throughout childhood. "Research shows toddlers who eat a wide variety of foods are more likely to carry those habits into adulthood, so it's important to introduce and reinforce healthy eating habits from the time a child starts to eat solid foods," said Courtney Hines, KinderCare Learning Centers' registered dietitian. "In fact, the first two years of a child's life are often referred to as 'the golden window' because this is when kids are most open to trying new foods and flavors. By encouraging variety and healthy eating early in life, parents and families can dramatically reduce picky eating habits many toddlers and children develop over time while also helping their children develop balanced relationships with food they'll carry with them into adulthood." Consider these tips and tricks to try at home with kids of all ages to build healthy eating habits and excitement around trying new foods. Babies When babies are ready for solid foods, be sure to expose them to a wide variety of whole, unprocessed foods with varying flavors and textures. Start with soft foods like mashed potatoes, avocados, cooked rice and bananas until your children are ready for firmer solids. Toddlers Toddlers who turns up their noses at veggies or fruit may be more open-minded if they're an active participant in mealtime prep. Ask your children to pick one new fruit or vegetable and agree that you'll both taste it. Asking your children to describe the appearance, texture, taste and smell of the food can also be a fun way to build vocabulary. Preschoolers Around the 2- or 3-year mark, children become interested in investigating and learning. Engage their natural curiosity in the world around them by planting a small vegetable, fruit or herb garden for your tiny chefs to tend to - it can be as simple as a windowsill garden. Gardening helps children understand where healthy, nutritious foods come from. Plus, children are more likely to eat what they've grown, which means more fruit and veggies in their diets. School-agers The kitchen is chock-full of learning opportunities for all ages. School-agers can work on their math skills as they measure ingredients for recipes. "Cooking together also gives parents an opportunity to talk about nutrition in terms children can understand," Hines said. "For example, carbohydrates, like bread, provide energy for our bodies and brains. When we eat carbohydrates, our bodies store them for later. That's why we're having whole-grain pancakes for breakfast, so you have the energy you need to fuel your brain and body all morning."
