Now Available Certified Animal $30. 00 Why Are Men in Alpine Such Jerks? On a recent Sunday afternoon I went to the RiteAid store in our beloved village to buy some ice cream. The checkout line was long, there was only one checker working and the ice cream was cold. I placed my two containers of ice cream on the counter of the the adjacent register and stepped back in line. I had progressed to about fourth in line when another checker came to open the register where my ice cream was peacefully resting at the side. She immediately swept my precious ice cream on to the floor, and imperiously asked the next person in line to step up. As all the people in line behind me gasped at her actions, I ran to retrieve my ice cream from the dirty floor. I was' too shocked to do more than pay for my purchase and leave. But when I told my husband what had just happened, we decided that I really should call the manager and report this incident. I called, and the manager assured me that he would take care of the problem internally. I reflected on this incident for some days and finally came to the conclusion that the reason this woman acted in such a rude, disgusting way was that her husband had probably mistreated her that morning. Yesterday, my daughter went to one of her childrens school and asked to talk to the principal. The secretary in a very snippy voice asked if she had an appointment. When daughter confessed that she did not and that she only had a quick question of the principal, the secretary huffed that she would not disturb the principal as she was waiting for a meeting to begin. So daughter asked to have the principal call her on the phone. The secretary pulled out a telephone slip and wrote down her name and phone number and then asked what the reason was for the request for the call. Daughter did not want to give the reason, and so the secretary held up the slip and tore it in half and dropped it into the trash! Daughter left, shocked at what had just happened, being under the impression that if her child went to a public school, it should not take a federal order to speak to the principal of that school. When she called back later she was put through to the principal who stated that the secretary was really a very sweet person. So here again we have a husband or boy friend who was acting like a jerk and upsetting a sweet secretary who naturally took it out on a person that she would ordinarily interact with in a professional manner. What is it with you Alpine men? Quit upsetting your woman so that we can again get courteous service. Recently Graduated? Registration Required (NAPSA)-Soon after graduation, young men who are 18 may find they need more than a diploma to get a job or enter a training program. Often, they find that they also have to produce proof that they have registered with the Selective Service System. Young men are required by law to register during the period of time beginning 30 days before their lath birthday until 30 days after their birthday-regardless of where they live. Those who fail to register face the possibility of fines or prison or both. Plus, they will find that they must register to receive state or federal aid for higher education and be eligible for a federal job or a job training program. Male non-citizens living in the U.S. must register to remain eligible for citizenship. Plus some states demand proof of registration in order to receive a drivers license. Fortunately, registration keeps getting easier and more convenient. It is now possible to register online, at a post office, by mail or when applying for federal student aid.

Pat the dough into a circle large enough to cover the berries in the slow cooker. Cut the dough into 8 wedges and arrange the wedges over the fruit. Sprinkle wedges with sugar. 3.

H(00ard On Streets Of Julian by Eric Stamets Julian Selected As Source For New Penny Material If you'll remember that in Septemberof2009 the U.S. Mint announced a new penny material. Everyone has heard for quite a while how a copper penny costs the U.S. Mint about 1.5 to produce, more than it's worth. For several years the fluctuations and dramatic rise in the cost of the raw copper to make the coins have jeopardized perhaps the very existence of the penny, much to the dismay of people who like to do things precisely and to the glee of merchants who would just as readily round prices up. Thanks to new technology, the U.S. Mint has arrived at a solution that Will solve the problem without debasing the coin (making it worth less than a penny.) They just announced that all pennies will be made out of highly compressed dirt. This is just another example of technology from the space program being used to benefit us in our everyday lives. It is not known what parts of the International Space Station are made out of the new high strength dirt. Other options including high strength ceramics were considered but proved to be too costly. The new dirt formula is expected to have a similar life span to that of a copper coin and will certainly have the look of an old copper coin. A boon to the Julian economy is that out of all the places tested nationally, Julian has the dirt that best meets the requirement for the new penny. If you have a yard that is hard to dig up and nothing will grow there, you may be in luck. You might be sitting on a dirt mine. The Obama administration has slightly altered the new slogan for the new coin's mintage in view of the recent devaluation of the dollar. The updated rallying cry for the value of the U.S. dollar is - "The U.S. dollar is worth just a little more than dirt" ons by Bill Fink Operation Stand Down I have never been homeless other than the times I chose to be. Traveling in my late teens and early twenties, I called a Chevy van and large parts of America, Canada and Mexico home. This was my choice and with a full box of tools I was afforded the freedom to catch on just about anywhere and earn enough money to stay in nice places from time to time, eat and travel to my next destination. Single guy, simple needs, time and a desire to see my little slice of the world, no need for a home, my choice. But the insidious problem of not having a home in America is growing. The "experts" have lots of theories and reasons for the cause of homelessness. More than any other time since the thirties, homelessness because of the national economy is an issue facing Americans. The personal issue of missing as little as a paycheck or two is oft times enough to put someone on the street. What is so perplexing and sad is the high rate of homelessness among our Veterans. Estimates in San Diego County find that between thirty to forty percent of the homeless are Veterans. This is not unique to military towns. What is amazing, is that how physically fit, smart, mentally tough young people who have their lives in front of them, can't find work, drift into alcoholism, drug addiction and life on the streets. I suppose you can fault the military for not transitioning their personnel for civilian life or the economy. But prior to Viet Nam, which is when the numbers of Veteran homeless began to rear its ugly head, this wasn't an issue or at least one that was on the radar. Since the Iraq war, the numbers are growing quickly and they"e staggering. Oration Stand Down OCcLrred this past weekend. It is a yearly hands on effort to deal with the growing issue of Veteran homelessness. Stand Down is a function of the Veterans Village of San Diego and has grown since the first one in 1988, to a nationwide program that is dealing with over 200,000 homeless Veterans. Veterans Village San Diego's philosophy is "Leave No One Behind". This past weekend nearly one thousand homeless Vets were greeted with respect and open arms. They were assigned to tents where they slept safely. They were fed, got showers, had access to barbers, clothing, medical and dental care. The VA and EDD were there to assist in obtaining IDs, Veteran services, employment and job counseling. Other VOLUNTEERS were there for psychological counseling, acupuncture and massage therapy, Chaplain services, recovery providers and 12 step meetings. Thousands of meals were prepared by the VFW, American Legion, Veterans Village San Diego, Kiwanis and supported by the Lions, Rotary and local food distributors. (VOLUNTEERS). Operation Stand Down sadly ended on Sunday with most Veterans hitting the streets again. Some will qualify for the Veterans Village San Diego but the number that gain admittance pales in comparison to the need. Veterans Village is a non- profit organization tlat gets results. Their last program year placed over 500 homeless and unemployed Veterans into long- term jobs. A long-term job gets homeless Vets off the streets and keeps the unemployed Vet July 20, 2011 Julian High School Football 'ream Lift-A-'rhon A Fundraiser for Football and Cheerleading wynola Pizza Express will provide the teams with Y-5% of the evenings earnings (your food and beverage orders)!

Want to volunteer and help or contribute a few bucks? Go to the web and Google Veterans Village of San Diego. If you have clothing in good condition, new personal items like shampoo, toothbrushes and paste, floss, disposable razors, feminine products and toiletries in general, it will help. There's a great group at Julian High School that can help you get products to the Vets, called the LOVE Club (Love Our Veterans Eternally). The American Legion, Sons of the American Legion and the Ladies Auxiliary can also help. This weekend there were more volunteers at Operation Stand Down than were actually needed. You might expect that in a military town, but the problem is growing particularly among our Vets. The folks at Veterans Village San Diego picked up the banner of dealing with this issue long before it was on the radar of most people. With a little help from the rest of us, maybe we can keep them going for a long time. PETS OF THE WEEK Bernie is a 4 year old neutered blue long-haired feline who came to the shelter as a stray.
