Of course due to the purpose of the Witness Protection Program, there are no names or street addresses listed, but it does list how many people per zip code are in the program. Amazingly for 92036 it includes almost 50% of the permanent population and of course includes Shelter Valley and Cuyamaca. It also does not give detailed information on why these people are in the program. Maybe they were just innocent bystanders that know too much or maybe they were hardened criminals who have gone straight and testified against their former criminal associates. The most interesting part about this whole revelation is that if two people are casually talking at the post office or bank, one of them is likely to be in the program. The big question is which one? Is it you or the other person that you think you know so well? Even the participants in the program don't know who else might be in the program and so there will be no potlucks at the town hall because the local Witness Protection Program Club does not exist. Obviously it would be a needless club because half of the people at any town hall potluck or dinner would probably be in the Witness Protection Program and can get their potluck thrills anyway. We shouldn't think that each new arrival to town is in the program since statistically half of them aren't. Some of the older residents that have lived here for years and have become fixtures and contributors to the community could have easily been in the program for decades and are examples of its success here. You can get a vague idea who is not in the program, because participants would not want excessive exposure and not allow their picture to appear on the cover of the Julian News. Ask Pastor Rick CalTrans To Remove Crosses Two of the three crosses on Inspiration Point have been tagged for removal. The order which is to be enforced on August 17th, was placed on the two wooden crosses August 3rd. No one from CalTrans was available over the weekend for comment.

Answer: Three things come to mind. First, the Bible's message is one of redemption. The accounts we read in it are to draw us closer to God. Since the authors were not inspired to write about the pyramids, it seems that they were not instrumental in redemption story. Secondly, no doubt some pyramids existed during the time of Moses (circa 1400 BC), but at that time, Israel was in Memphis, the ancient capital of Egypt, and did not spend time near the Giza plateau where the great pyramids exist. And finally, it's possible that tJhe Israelites were not impressed with such structures. Remember the negative judgment passed on such human constructions in the tradition of Babel?

(Opinions in this column do not necessarily express the views of Julian News, its editor, or employees.) ns Religion In The News Deceased: John Stott The Reverend John Stott, one of the world's most influential figures in the spread of evangelical Christianity over the past half-century, died July 27th in Lingfield, Surrey, England. He was 90. Scholar Michael Cromartie once said that if evangelicals could elect a pope, they would be likely to choose Mr. Stott. Though less known in the United States and hardly a household name outside the evangelical sphere, Mr. Stott, an author, preacher and theologian, was often compared to the Rev. Billy Graham, his American contemporary. But while Mr. Graham's influence is rooted in a rousing preaching style and a personal magnetism that has filled stadiums, Mr. Stott's relied on a proliferation of books-- grounded in learning but accessible to all -- and the evangelical organization he founded, Langham Partnership International, named after its cradle, All Souls Church at Langham Place in London's West End. "We must be global Christians," he once wrote, "with a global mission, because our God is a global God." (Source: New York Times, summarized by Pastor Rick) Ask Pastor Rick Q. Much of the early Israelites' time took place in Egypt. Why is there no mention of the pyramids? Mmm, Mmm Good You would never know it to look at me now, but I was a skinny kid. My early years were spent on my Grandparent's farm and Grandma was not known for her mastery of the kitchen. To say that I was culinarily deprived (spell check has no record of this term) is an understatement. I was the only kid in school who couldn't trade a sandwich if my saliva glands depended on it. Who could blame the other kids when all I had to trade was a thick peanut butter on rye with no jelly, or maybe a potato salad on pumpernickel. Did I mention my father was a skinny kid too, a hundred and twenty eight pounds entering boot camp. Dinner wasn't much better. Growing up on an egg farm we ate a lot of chicken that was barely cooked enough to burn off the feathers. To this day researchers are using my DNA to develop strains of salmonella vaccinations. I grew up with the attitude that eating was an unpleasant necessity one had to tolerate to keep from dying. I only mention this because it gave me insight into my father's gripes and stories about how bad Army food was during WWII. He spent his entire early life eating Grandma's cooking, how is it possible that anything could be worse. Let me delve into the diet of the front line troop in the European Theater of Operations and the C and K ration. Napoleon knew an army marched on its stomach. The German army's field kitchens moved to the front along with its troops to provide hot meals. The American front line troop's primary source of food and nutrition came primarily from cans in the form of C or K rations. Both C and K rations were only intended for short-term 760 765 1020 " ULIAN '(ESTERYEARS Unique and Old Fashionedl Collectibles Gifts Local Music Wall Art. Candles Soaps in Wynola Farms Marketplace 4470 Highway 78 use as they were considered emergency rations. Short-term meaning from five to ten days. Unfortunately for our GIs, this diet went on for months and months at a time. What are a C and K ration? Because of the myriad of suppliers, at different times of the war, available information is confusing as to the contents that were fostered on our troops. Historical information, and the memories of a couple of Vets that were there will provide the basis for my description. A C ration consisted of three cans, a little bigger than a typical soup can. The favorite being franks and beans, according to the memory of an old tanker I know. Seems the infantry was always first to get to the frank and bean cases and they grabbed up most of the supply. The only historical references I found said nothing about franks, just meat and beans, but who knows what a frank is anyway. There was also hash and another can contained stew, whose smell can cause 80 something ex GIs to keel over 60 years later. My Dad also remembers something called Corn Willy. He tells me, "they had no idea what it was, but they didn't know wh at was in the stew or hash either". But let me reiterate; that this was eaten day after day for months on end. A common memory of all the old fellows I talked to was the can opener they wore on their dog tags. Seems like a consensus exists that this tool was one of the best pieces of equipment the army ever produced with the old timers insisting they could open a tank with it. Another piece of culinary equipment carried by infantryman was a spoon that was slid into his boot. The K ration was tested for nutrition for three days by paratroopers in Panama. They marched on gently rolling terrain, on cleared roads for eleven miles per day carrying light packs. It was judged insufficient except as an emergency ration. There was concern that the lack of nutrition, calories and the monotony of the meal was insufficient to sustain a hard fighting army under stressful physical, climatic and extreme conditions of war. But at least it August 10, 2011 tasted good, NOT! K rations came in a cardboard box similar to a Cracker Jack box, dipped in wax to prevent moisture penetration. They became popular logistically, because they were lighter and stored more easily. A ration consisted of three boxes, Breakfast, Dinner and Supper. Breakfast consisted of a tuna sized can of dehydrated eggs (yum), and crackers. All three boxes usually contained chewing gum, water tablets, malt tablets which most guys threw away, toilet paper, and cigarettes which my Dad remembers as either Chelsea's, Wings or Raleigh's Lunch was a can of cheese, can of crackers and an indistinguishable hard mass they called a fruit bar. Dinner was a can of meat. I have never known a Vet who knew what the meat was, but no one and I mean no one ever forgot the smell. Fortunately for my Dad, the ration contained lemonade powder that he would liberally sprinkle over the "meat". There was also a canned, stale, hard biscuit. I am getting so hungry. One other delicious ration that bears mentioning is the military chocolate barorthe D ration. This bar was developed by Hershey with the four requirements issued by Army Quartermaster Colonel Paul Logan. 1. Weigh 4 ounces. 2. Be high in food energy value, 3. Be able to withstand high temperatures, and 4. (I am not kidding) Taste "a little better than a boiled potato". The bar was so hard (melting temp was 120 degrees) that it couldn't be eaten by guys with bad teeth and had to be shaved with a knife or broken up with a rifle butt even if you had good teeth. The taste was so bad that they were often thrown away. I am sure a boiled potato would have been preferable. So there it goes folks, along with fighting the evil forces during WWII, our Armies marched on a calorically, nutritionally, substandard, monotonous diet of bad tasting food. At least during Korea, Viet Nam the Gulf and other actions, our troops got theazr6me de la cr6me for their dietary requirements. Boy am I waiting for the howls on that one.
