November 23, 2011 We received this from Pam Churness. It has been going the around on the internet and this is a good time of year to print it. Michele Harvey. We Have Just Solved Your Christmas Gift List Christmas 2011 -- Birth Of A New Tradition nothing of plunking down the Benjamin's on a Chinese made fiat-screen? Perhaps that grateful gift receiver would like his driveway sealed, or lawn mowed for the summer, or driveway plowed all winter, or games at the local golf course. There are a bazillion owner-run restaurants -- all offering gift certificates. And, if your intended isn't the fancy eatery sort, what about a half dozen breakfasts at the local breakfast joint.' Remember, folks this isn't about big National chains -- this is about supporting your home town Americans with their financial lives on the line to keep their doors open. How many people couldn't use an oil change for their car, truck or motorcycle, done at a shop run by the American working guy? Thinking about a heartfelt gift for mom? Mom would LOVE the services of a local cleaning lady for a day. My computer could use a tune- up, and I KNOW I can find some young guy who is struggling to get his repair business up and running. OK, you were looking for something more personal. Local crafts people spin their own wool As the holidays approach, the giant ...Asian factories are kicking into high gear to provide Americans with monstrous piles of cheaply produced goods -- merchandise that has been produced at the expense of American labor. This year Will be different. This year many Americans will give the gift of genuine concern for other Americans. There is no longer an excuse that, at gift giving time, nothing can be found that is produced by American hands. Yes there is! It's time to think outside the box, people. Who says a gift needs to fit in a shirt box, wrapped in. Chinese produced wrapping paper? Everyone -- yes EVERYONE gets their hair cut. How about gift certificates from your local American hair salon or barber? Gym membership? It's appropriate for all ages who are thinking about some health improvement. Who wouldn't appreciate getting their car detailed? Small, American owned detail shops and car washes would love to sell you a gift certificate or a book of gift certificates. Are you one of those extravagant givers who think Low Cost Gelding Clinic To Aid Local Horse Owners Cottonwood. A total of 79 horses have been gelded by the NERN program to date. "The current economy has not only caused hardship for people, but our animals and horses have suffered horribly here and throughut the rest of the country becaum many owners can no longer afford to care for them properly or even keep them," Pug pointed out. "ltwould be a shame to create ewn more horses that will have trouble finding homes over the mxt few years. This program has been designed to help prevent that from happening," she continued. Ms. Puga has been directly involved in the rescue and rehoming of nearly 1,000 horses since she became involved in equine advocacy. She decided to launch NERN last year when she realized that many of the rescue organizations she was working with needed help themselves. "It became a question Of where could I best invest my time and efforts to help the horses that are such an important part of my own life," she commented. "Since virtually all equine rescues and sanctuaries are being overwhelmed by the number of horses needing help in this economy, NERN was founded to aid the equine welfare community itself. Helping to reduce the number of horses that will require rescue in the future is our first major effort." Donations to NERN's low- cost gelding program can be made on it's website at www. The National Equine Resource Network (NERN) will hold one of its series of statewide low-cost gelding clinics in Iartnership with Tearsong's Equine Athletes, Rescue & Sanctuary, Paniolo Equine Veterinary Services, and PIMA Medical Institute Veterinary Technician program on December 3, 2011 at Creek Hollow Ranch. This landmark program was created to help financially challenged local horse owners geld their colts and stallions  and reduce the overbreeding that has created an excess of horses in California and the rest of the nation. Shirley Puga, founder and president of NERN, said these clinics are being held throughout the state in 2011 as a pile[ program for a nationwide effort to help reduce the number of excess horses that currently need rehoming because thousmds of owners can no longer afford to keep them properly - or at all - since the current eccnomic downturn. The cost to area horseowners will be $75 to geld ther colts/ stallions. All horses br3ught to the clinic must be haler broke, in good health, and nave two descended testicles. Attendance will be limited. Horses will be acc.,pted on a first-come, first-serwd basis, by appointment only. Contact NERN at or 760-419-2462 to' information and an applicatior. The Ramona clinic will be the eighth in the clinic series. Earlier clinics have been held in Huntington Beach, Salinas, Oakdele, Solvang, and and knit them into scarves. They make jewelry, and pottery and beautiful wooden boxes. Plan your holiday outings at local, owner operated restaurants and leave your server a nice tip. And, how about going out to see a play or ballet at your hometown theatre. Musicians need love too, so find a venue showcasing local bands. Honestly, people, do you REALLY need to buy another ten thousand Chinese lights for the house? When you buy a five dollar string of light, about fifty cents stays in the community. If you have those kinds of bucks to burn, leave the mailman, trash guy or babysitter a nice BIG tip. You see, Christmas is no longer about draining American pockets so that China can build another glittering city. Christmas is now about caring about US, encouraging American small businesses to keep plugging away to follow their dreams. And, when we care about other Americans, we care about our communities, and the benefits come back to us in ways we couldn't imagine. THIS is the new American Christmas tradition. The Fine Free Friday Program At The San Diego County Library Is Changing! What is the Fine Free Friday Program? Fine Free Friday is an "amnesty" day that encourages customers to bring back overdue items without penalty. Fine Free Friday is a pilot program. Fine Free Friday (FFF) occurs on the last Friday of each month. In November, this falls on a holiday. Therefore, all items left in the book drop after the branch closes on Wednesday, Nov. 23, and before the branch re-opens on Saturday, Nov 26, will be counted as being turned in on Fine Free Friday. This is the last month to turn in your extremely overdue items and get out of paying fines. Beginning December 1, 2011, the Fine Free Friday program will change. Under the new rules, overdue San Diego County Library-owned library materials are eligible to have their fines waived if the items are returned on the last Friday of the month following the item's due date. To better illustrate this, in December, "FFF" falls on Friday, December 30. Items due in November and December may have their fines waived. Items overdue longer (more than two months) will not be eligible for fines to be waived on Fine Free Friday. To avoid incurring fines and to keep everyone happy, your best option is to renew and save at San Diego County Library.
