14 The Julian News Reliaion In The News Wooden Cross Found At Air Force Academy&apos;s Wicca Center The Air Force Academy, recently accused of Christian bias, has built a new outdoor worship area for pagans and other observers of earth-based religions. Academy spokesman, John Van Winkle, said an area had been designated for Wiccans, pagans, and followers of similar traditions, however it was located at the north end of the 19,000 acre campus and not as assessable as the worship areas of the Catholic, Protestant, Muslim, Buddhist, and Jewish faiths. The new site, a collection of stones set in a circle, unveiled late last year, is closer to where cadets live and train. The recent grand opening of the worship area was "marred" when a wooden cross was found there. "We've been making great progress at the Air Force Academy. This is clearly a setback," said Mikey Weinstein; a 1977 graduate of the academy and founder of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation. Source: L A Times, summarized by Pastor Rick Ask Pastor Rick The Bible has no historical competence and is only good for propaganda purposes. Why do Christians insist it is historically accurate? You are not the first to doubt the historicity of the Bible. There have been many scholars of past generations to make the same claim. They have said things like: Pontius Pilate did not exist; the Hittites (a race of people mentioned as far back as the book of Genesis) did not exist; cities and people written about in the Bible have no corroboration in history, etc. What we have come to know is that almost every objection of past scholars has been substantiated by archaeology. For example, in 1961 part of a pillar was found in an excavation in Caesarea, Israel. An inscription on the pillar named Tiberius (a Roman Caesar) and Pilate. In Tel Dan in the mid 1990's, a stone was uncovered that, for the first time outside the Bible, mentioned the "house of David." I could give you many more examples. Sir William Ramsey wrote one of the best books on this subject. He left England a hostile scholar, bent on discrediting Luke's writings. (Luke was the author of the gospel of Luke and the book of Acts). His book, titled St. Paul the Traveler and Roman Citizen (a Baker Book House, 1949 reprint, based on his 1894 lectures), confirmed the full accuracy of the customs, locations, and governing titles Luke mentioned. He concluded, "Great historians are the rarest of writers...[I regard Luke] among the historians of the first rank" (pp. 3-4).

Historical Society Meeting continued from page 1 Scott Kardel, Palomar Observatory Spokesperson in the world. It is still used nightly to explore the universe.

I think, at a child's birth, ifa mother could ask a fairy godmother to endow it with the most useful gift, that gift would be curiosity. -- Eleanor Roosevelt Stacey O'Brien At Library continued from page 7 a tiny four-day old barn owl and brought it to Caltech. The baby bird had nerve damage in one wing - he could never be released back into the wild. What to do? Ms. O'Brien's boss offered his young prot6g6 the chance of a biologist's lifetime... with a few strings attached. She could "adopt" the bird, take him home and compile valuable observations and research critical to the understanding of barn owls. However, the adoption would last for the owl's entire life, typically fifteen years. Ms. O'Brien had no idea what that commitment would entail, or what she would have to give up to uphold it. There were no manuals detailing the care of a barn owl in captivity, much less an injured baby owl confined to the rented bedroom of its keeper. But with her knowledge base, a profusion of faith and a good amount of trepidation, Ms. O'Brien accepted her boss's offer. The nineteen years that followed are the basis for "Wesley the Owl"." The cri'tically acclaimed book reveals the extraordinary essential qualities of both main characters. By the end of the book, both are beloved by the reader, who, along the way, receives a trove of information on barn owl behavior, We learn what Ms. o'aden learned - that barn owls are misunderstood and adorable, complex and faithful, cuddly and keen. Another essential element of the book is Ms. O'Brien's account of her battle with brain cancer and how V" sley restored her will to live. Faced with a life of unending pain, depression and brutal fatigue with, according to her doctors, no chance for recovery, it was her love and commitment to Wesley that pulled her through. "It's the Way of the Owl," Ms. O'Brien writes in her book. "You commit for life, you finish what you start, you give your unconditional love, and that's enough."

(c) 2010 King Features Synd., Inc. Teen Drinking continued from page 11 girls were arrested for violent behavior compared to boys; 37 percent versus 31 percent. Minors sometimes get alcohol from older friends. They get alcohol from strangers willing to buy it for them or store clerks who fail to check ids. Minors get alcohol from their friend's parents and their own parents. Every unincorporated area and 17 of the 18 cities in the County have a social host ordinance making it illegal to give alcohol to minors. This includes parties, gatherings or events on private property. Doing so is a misdemeanor and punishable by a fine of 1,000 dollars, six months in jail or both. Parents who suspect their child might have a drinking problem are encouraged to call the County of San Diego Access and Crisis Line at (800) 479-3339 or 211. April 21, 2010 Feral Cat Roundup continued from page 10 a serious medical problem with the cat which you will not be able to treat, you, with the advice of the vet, must make the decision on whether it is safe to release the animal or kinder to euthanize it. Untreated abscesses and respiratory infections, and a number of other conditions, can mean suffering and a slow death. Make sure the spot you pick for release does not encourage the cat to run into danger (like a busy street) to get away from you. Keep the trap covered until you are ready to release. When ready, simply hold the trap with the door facing away from you and open the door. The cat will probably bolt immediately out of the trap. If it is confused, just tilt the trap so the back is slightly up and tap on the back of the trap to encourage it to leave. Never put your hand in the trap! If the animal still will not leave, prop the door open with a stick and leave it for a while. A trapped skunk or possum, which is nocturnal, may decide to sleep in the trap all day and not leave the trap until dark. After releasing the cats hose off traps and disinfect them with bleach. Never store traps in the "set" position (door open); animals may wander into even unbaited traps and starve to death. Helpful Hints Bring a flashlight with you if trapping at night. It will come in handy for checking traps from a distance and might help you avoid a twisted ankle in the dark. Bring a cap for the top of the mackerel can. Nothing smells worse than fish juice spilled in the car. Don't forget a spoon! Females with kittens will be attracted by the sound of their kittens if the previously captured kittens are placed in a covered carrier just behind the trap. Similarly, kittens will be easier to trap if the previously captured mom is in the carrier. Females in heat can be placed in a carrier to attract male cats who have been eluding the traps. Never place the "bait" animal in the trap or anywhere where it may be harmed by the trapped animal. Even moms can hurt their babies if frightened enough. Be careful not to let the "bait" animal escape. Some kittens can be caught without a trap but are still too wild to be handled easily. Use a thick towel to pick up the kitten to help protect you from scratching and biting. This also helps prevent the kitten from squirming away from you. fREE ELECTRONIC WASTE CO|||CTION EVENT iii00i!iii00;i00ii ill ili! i!!ii ii00i00i00i:ili ii! i ili::iii!N00ia00i!i00N 00iiiiiiiiii!ii!00i!i:iiiiii!::iiiii00i:ii00!ii!: 00ii+iiiii! ! tile Julian High School Community Service Club Advisor at (760)-765-0606 x 207, i For more intbrmation on what can and cannot be recycled, please contact Juain tauter at Arrow i Metal Recycling at (619)-827-6535 or email lauterjustin@arrowmetalrecyeling.eom i ..................... _o...h<,e!.e.o..*e..etk (!9:o-4666.ea!.:.zJ.q:,Ez.?. ....................
