His outstanding placement earned him a trip to the podium for a medal - the icing on his birthday cake! (Ethan turned 15 years old on race day). Veteran David Stringfellow, a sophomore, missed the first SoCal race due to a concussion sustained during the soccer season.

He skillfully maneuvered past 80 riders to Don't Get Tripped Up By Life's Stumbling Blocks (StatePoint) While obstacles can get in the way of pursuing your intended goals, if you're resourceful, they can also present an opportunity to forge a new path. For Lani Hall Alpert, Grammy Award-winning vocalist-turned- author, this sentiment hits close to home. At the peak of her success in the mid-'80s, Alpert contracted a debilitating case of Chronic fatigue syndrome, also known as the Epstein-Barr virus, forcing the singer to take a reprieve from performing. In spite of losing the physical energy required to sing and perform onstage, Alpert turned to writing and being true to them are the keys to being happy in the face of change. • Find your therapy: If you're going through a hard time, figure out what will help you to self-actualize. For some it may be to create art, for others it's to achieve physical fitness or acquire knowledge. Everyone has his or her own healing mechanism, and if you're lucky, it will choose you. "When I couldn't sing, writing helped empty myself of the worry and fear that I was experiencing," says Alpert. " have always used creativity to find my own truth." • Be skeptical: When you are Julian Arts Guild Painting Workshop On April 10th artist Leon Okun will conduct an oil painting , workshop in Julian.

Leon Okun Thousands Of Free Plants Distributed To School Gardens Throughout San Diego County San Diego County, CA: The Resource Conservation District (RCD) of Greater San Diego County, in conjunction with Altman Plants of Vista, gave away thousands of plants last Thursday to help support school garden programs throughout San Diego County. This is the sixth year that the RCD has facilitated this much-needed school plant giveaway, benefitting 132 elementary and middle schools. With childhood obesity on the rise, more and more schools are making the commitment to create and maintain school gardens, which use fun, hands-on gardening techniques to teach students about healthy eating. The nearly 1,500 vegetable and herb seedlings donated by Altman Plants will help hundreds of schools get a jump start on their Spring planting. In addition to vegetables and herbs, schools received more than 1,200 narrowleaf milkweed seedlings, a variety of milkweed native to California. The plants were grown by Butterfly Farms in Vista and donated by the RCD. Milkweed is the only food source for the dwindling Monarch Butterfly population. Because of this, the RCD created its "Milkweed for Monarchs" program to encourage schools and individuals to grow native milkweed in their gardens to help increase the number Of Monarchs throughout the county. The RCD is also encouraging schools to participate in a citizen science program to monitor the Monarchs visiting and breeding I[ "Serving the Community of Julian" ]1 in their garden, as well as the first I1 GATED, SECURE STORAGE SITES -- FULLY ENCLOSED YARD II I[ INDUSTRIAL/BUSINESS SITE FOR MACHINERY & EQUIPMENT STORAGE II and last dates of the year they I1 ' Outside Storage - Ti'ailers, Boats, Cars, RV's II observe Monarchs" so that we I1 Unit Sizes- xlO, 10x10, 10x15, 10x20, 10x30II can learn more about San Diego II II Monarchs' overwintering habits. to express herself artistically, hurdles into personal triumphs, most vulnerable, it can be easy www.rcdsandiego.org, orcontact In Alpert's new audiobook, She's now focusing on sharing to place your complete trust Ann Baldridge, RCD Education "Emotional Memoirs & Short her story, which, she hopes will in a therapist or other person, Coordinator, at 619-562-0096 or Stories," she deals with this inspire otherstodolikewise,practice or institution that is ann.baldridge@rcdsandiego.org. debilitating period of her life, as Everyone's stumbling blocksmeant to be beneficial.
