This organization was chosen to benefit from the Summer Reading Club's Read for a Reason and will receive up to $3,000 from the Del Mar Country Club, $1 for every person who completes the Read for a Reason program. Amy Pat Rigney, president of the non-profit organization, will give a slide show presentation about the horses at the Tir Na Nog sanctuary. Come hear about their beautiful horses, most of which are there because of an agreement with the County's Department of Animal Services with Tir Na Nog to provide a safe place for mistreated or unwanted horses. C'(:f Summer is always a great time ~j O'F-...;:-/~ ~, to read, but how about reading for a great cause? San Diego County Library (SDCL) launched its annual Read for a Reason program on June 11, giving customers the opportunity to sign up to meet certain reading goals this summer. For people who sign up and meet their goal, funding will be donated to the Horses of Tir Na Nog horse sanctuary. The program runs through August 5. Come to the library to learn about the thirty-plus horses that have a wonderful home on a twelve- acre parcel nestled between Descanso and Pine Valley. The Tir Na Nog story begins with a sweet old quarter horse named Casper. Casper's legacy is a commitment to consistent, quality care for horses in need of a loving, life-long home. They are an all-volunteer, non-profit organization led by people who love horses and believe that horses enrich lives. The horses have come to Horses of Tir Na Nog from a variety of sources. Several were PMU (pregnant mares' urine) foals/mares from Canada, one is a BLM mustang, others were riding horses, and one was a racehorse. All of the horses serve the important role of "ambassadors," regardless of their ability to be ridden. They invite you to meet their herd on their website, found at www.horsesoftirnanog. org. Some of their stories will tug at your heartstrings. As you get to know the herd, they hope that you will join them in celebrating the unique qualities of each horse. It is the special character of each member of the herd that motivates the volunteers on a daily basis. There are many philosophies when it comes to horses and their care. The sanctuary's goal is to keep their horses as healthy as possible, given their age and physical conditions. They cannot turn back the hands of time for the older herd members, nor can they cure every condition that ails them. Through regular, sound nutrition, and thoughtful overall management they strive to ensure a high quality of life. In addition, through behavior management efforts, they strive for "happy" horses, with low stress levels. The presentation at the library is geared for people of all ages to learn about this great organization and how you can help. You just have to do what you love to do already, read. Please join us at the Julian Library, located at 1850 Highway 78, next to the High School, on Saturday, July 14, at 1:00 pm. For more information, please contact the branch at 760-765-0370.

Julian Little League Committee, Teams & Families Next Season, the Julian Chapter of Little League will be offering-Girls Softball as well as Baseball Motivating The Teachers Of Today For The Students Of Tomorrow (NAPSA)-Each year, thousands of students toss their caps into the sky and celebrate the start of their career as educators. Fast forward five years and it's predicted that nearly 50 percent of those will have left the job. What happens in those five years to turn fired-up graduates. away from the Profession they dedicated so much effort and passin towards? Education leaders around the world are seeking an answer to the conundrum, and are turning to an unexpected solution: social networks. A study from the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development revealed a common set of challenges among its 34 member nations: attracting qualified graduates to the field of teaching and preventing current teachers from moving on to greener pastures. So what's behind this trend? Among the biggest contributors is the challenging work environment of the classroom. Laura Rahn, an award-winning 4th grade teacher in California's Mountain View Elementary School, has been teaching for 23 years. After all these years of, experience, one of Rahn's biggest challenges is managing her schedule and the constant workload-an issue she says is even more pronounced for teachers during their first few years in the classroom. Without peer support, new educators struggle to find ways to balance their work and life. Says Rahn, "Each year, I wonder how I'll get everything done. Networking with other teachers has always been a great source of innovative ways to stay ahead of all the paperwork and grading that go with being an elementary school teacher." To help stem the tide of teacher attrition, education and government leaders are investing in resources that improve collaboration between teachers and give them access to more resources. For example, in 2009 the Netherlands' Ministry of Education, Culture and Science built an Internet-based portal called Wikiwijs (or "Wikiwise"). Available for educators from the primary to university levels, Wikiwijs helps them create, share and freely use open educational resources. In its first two years, more than 1 million lesson plans, tests and other classroom exercises have been up_loaded to the Wikiwijs library. Companies such as Microsoft are also helping. For more than 20 years, the Redmond, WA- based software company has been working with educators and government officials at all levels to help students acquire the skills they need for work and life. Empowering teachers is a natural outgrowth of that commitment. "Microsoft firmly believes technology can play a significant role in the classroom, but the fate of education remains in the teacher's ability to engage students," says Anthony Salcito, vice president of worldwide education at Microsoft.
