ISSN 1937-8416 THURSDAY :l h anksgwlng iNOVEMBER 22: Annual Holiday Meal Canceled The Annual Thanksgiving Day comrhunitY meal hosted by Calvary Chapel of Julian has been canceled this year. Thew church found it self with not enough time to prepare the meal after the town hall oven was found to be unsafe. The Chamber is working to repair the problem but could not guarantee it would be ready in time. Supervisor Jacob Advises. Homeowners To Pay, And Protest - New State Fire Tax County Supervisor Dianne Jacob advises residents in her district to pay a new state fire tax now being levied on tens of thousands of local homeowners, but to do it under protest. In recent weeks, many rural and semi-rural residents of District 2 ? a sprawling region thatt includes the bulk of the San Diego County backcountry - have started to receive bills asking them to pay the state up to $150 annually for each habitable structure on their land. Approximately 400,000 people in the region will be impacted by this tax. Jacob has long opposed the tax, saying it stems from the state's failure to adequately fund Cal Fire. "It's blatantly unjust and borders on cruel that the state would hit homeowners up for more money when they already pay property taxes to help fund public safety programs and, in many cases, specia ! local fees for fire protection," she said. She noted the county also spends $!5.5 million annually to augment rural fire protection. More than $10 million of that money goes directly to Cal Fire. The supervisor recommends that those receiving the tax bill: Pay it within the 30-day due date and write "UNDER PROTEST" on the notation line of their check.. Make copies of the check and send the original with the bill. Go to www.firepreventionfee. org and click on the link labeled "Petition for Redetermination." Fill out the petition to formally challenge the fee. Send a copy of the petition and a copy of the check to these three addresses: Fire Prevention Petitions, P.O, Box 2254, Suisun City, CA, 94585; Board of Forestry and Fire Protection, P.O. Box 944246, Sacramento, CA, 94244; and the Board of Equalization, P.O. Box 942879, Sacramento, CA, 94279. All three steps must be completed should any lawsuits prevail in overturning the fee and should the court order the state Final Preparation For Country Christmas And Tree Lighting from Ed Glass Ed Glass and David Lewis getting the pad ready for the new stage area at the Pioneer Museum and Park.
