Wynola Pizza will be donating 25% of all sales to the Salvation Army. A Salvation Army representative will be present and The Salvation Army will have band members there to entertain the patrons in The Red Barn(and if the weather cooperates on the patio, too). The Salvation Army is an effective concerned organization that clearly understands the needs of the community. During the fires, they were one of the first organizations to come to last night. Volunteers and staff are busy preparing meals in the center's kitchen, which will be distributed along with bottledwater, fruit and snacks by Salvation Army mobile kitchen units, known as canteens. The Salvation Army now has two emergency canteens in the El Centro and Calexico area, serving first responders as well as those affected by the earthquake. The Salvation Army has also helped out with the floods in the Northeast and Midwest. In 2007/2008 they served over 69 million meals, supplied lodging for over 10 million and gave cash The Salvation Army's Brass Ensemble will provide some background music for your dinner at Wynola Pizza's benefit evening on April 27th. our aid and the last to leave. They were a major support for our community for a year and a half overseeing our needs with the rebuilding of our homes and businesses. Since the explosion in the West Virginia Upper Big Branch coal mine, Salvation Army volunteers and officers continue to offer emotional and spiritual comfort to victims' families and hydration to fire and rescue personnel. They have served more than 650 meals, along with snacks and drinks. The Salvation Army's Major Tom Richmond of Charleston, WV is serving as Liaison for the Emergency Operations Center and Homeland Security. Aftershocks continue to rattle residents along the U.S.-Mexico border following Easter Sunday's magnitude 7.2 earthquake whose epicenter was located just outside of Mexicali. Some 20 million people from Tijuana to Los Angeles are said to have felt it. The Salvation Army is diligently serving in the Calexico and El Centro areas, which were the hardest hit cities within the United States. Vicky Esqueda, a captain with The Salvation Army in El Centro, says, "El Centro's main street has a lot of structural damage with fallen brick, busted storefront windows, and garbage everywhere. The hospital set up a triage outside with numerous people coming in with broken bones." Her husband was injured during the earthquake. Jerry Esqueda, also a captain with The Salvation Army, injured his arm and knee when he fell during the disaster, :but after he was treated at an emergency room, the Esquedas ibegan helping other earthquake !victims in El Centro. "The corps has set up beds for those needing shelter and we are busy feeding and handing out water," said Vicky. The Salvation Army is sheltering and feeding at its Community Center in El Centro multiple families whose homes suffered damage from the quake. Thirty individuals were housed grants to over 6 million people. With less than half a million paid staff they orginized over three million volunteers. In Haiti, The Salvation Army operates schools, clinics, a hospital, feeding programs, children's homes and church- related activities through some 60 Corps community centers across the country. One Salvation Army facility, or compound, includes a home for more than 50 children; a school with a daily attendance of 1,500 children; a medical clinic caring for 150-200 people daily; and a church that on any typical Sunday welcomes nearly 1,000 people. The facility is less than 10 minutes from the National Palace and is in an area known as St. Martin that is home to predominantly poor living in the nation's capital. The Salvation Army in Chile is providing vital assistance to coastal communites damaged by a tsunami. Waves up to five metres high destroyed everything in their path after being set off by an earthquake measuring 8.8 on the Richter scale. The response is focused mainly on the communities of Dichato and Caleta Tumbes, where many local people fled to high ground and watched as the tsunami destroyed their homes, possessions and livelihoods, and in some instances took the lives of their loved ones. One woman described how she had lost her 92-year-old father. He had decided to stay in their house because his son, a local fisherman, had said that he knew the sea well and it would not reach the house. On any other night that would have been true - but not on this occasion. Salvation Army officers and volunteers have been working selflessly in these coastal communities to provide food, water and clothes, helping to clear and clean properties that are still standing, and offering spiritual support. In one camp volunteers are running a children's club to try and assist intheir recovery. Among the many things destroyed by the tsunami were the communities' fishing fleets. This time of year is the most important for sardine fishermen, the season lasting only three months, and many earn almost their entire annual income in this short period. The fishermen now just stand by the coast, looking out to sea, not knowing when they will be able to fish again or how they will provide for their families. The secretary of the fishermen's cooperative in Dichato said: 'The young men may be able to retrain to do something" e se but many of us are too old. All we know is fishing - it is our livelihood, it is our life.' One option being considered by The Salvation Army is to replace the boats that were swept away. How well they can do this will depend on finding donors who will support the concept. The Salvation Army continues to explore further avenues of providing assistance and plans to provide support weft into the future. Due to the economy their revenue is down and their needs are up for helping families, world wide. 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 their renowned chef, Kue Her formerly Head Chef from the Borrego Springs Resort.

Volunteers are made up to represent various types of injuries. The CERT participants are briefed by local law enforcement and fire service personnel before being sworn in. Nearly 300 Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) volunteers, including 65 teenage members, from throughout the County trained together today to refresh their skills for responding to local disasters. "The County is better equipped to handle a local emergency when community members such as those that participated in the exercise today get informed, involved and trained in emergency response. In a disaster, community resiliency is made up of three components: a well-trained first responder capability, emergency management capability and just as importantly, well-prepared residents," said Ron Lane, director of the San Diego County Office of Emergency Services. The training took place from continued on page 8 Never Before Seen Photos To Be Displayed At Historical Society Gathering April 27th An amazing set of never-before-seen pictures, taken during the construction of the Palomar Observatory, have been revealed. These photos were taken personally by workers on the site and kept in family photo albums. Recently, relatives in possession of these photos donated them to the Palomar Observatory. These shots are sweet because they show the personal pride, honor and humor in the faces of these skilled men. A picture is worth a thousand words. Do you want to see these photos? For more than sixty years the 200-inch Hale Telescope on Palomar Mountain has been used to probe the secrets of the universe. For forty-five of those years it stood as the largest effective telescope continued on page 14 Eagles Spring Athletics Baseball - Fri 04/23/10 Borrego Springs High School Jess Martin Park 3:30PM Mon 04/26/10 @ Borrego Springs High School 3:30PM Tue 04/27/10 Borrego Springs High School Jess Martin Park 3:30PM Softball - Thu 04/22/10 @ San Pasqual Academy 3:30PM Tue 04/27/10 Borrego Springs High School 3:30PM Thu 04/29/10 @ Vincent Memorial H.

You must have reservations to take advantage of the clinic. For reservations call Feral Cat Coalition at 619-758-9194. Once you have made a reservation if you need to trap some cats, call Angela at 619- 866-9161. You must have a reservation for a trap, you can pick up traps on April 22nd at the Feed Store parking lot. Preparation for Trapping If possible, get the cats used to being fed at the same place and time of day. You might try leaving the trap unset and covered with a large towel during routine feeding so that the animal will get used to seeing and smelling it in the area. Don't feed the cats the day/ night before you are going to trap so the cats will be hungry. Be sure to notify others who may feed the cats not to leave food out either. Plan to trap so that you don't have to keep the cat too long before surgery. Trapping the night before is usually the best approach. Cats should not eat 12 hours prior to surgery. Prepare the area where you will be holding the cats before and after the clinic. A garage or other sheltered; warm, protected area is best. Lay down newspapers to catch the ineyitable stool, urine and food residue. You may want to use pieces of wood to elevate the traps off the newspapers. This allows the mess to fall through the wire away from the cats. Spraying the area ahead of time with a cat-safe flea spray (like Adams or Ovitrol) will discourage ants. Prepare the vehicle you will use to transport them as well. Plastic may be an additional precaution. But remember that you will need to use newspapers or some other absorbent material in addition. (Urine will roll right off of the plastic, and that isn't what you want.) Plan your day of trapping carefully.
