It is clear that a lot of heart was put into this very special production. It seems that the Julian version of Dickens' Christmas Carol is evolving into a Broadway musical genre. In my opinion that is cool. Bravo to all the cast, backstage technicians,sets the construction, and supporting crew, Director Sandra Sladkey, choreographer Terry Ross and playwright Don Winslow.

She might not have looked at the average incomes and thought about how they affected the total sum of taxes paid, not to mention fairness. In 2006 the average income including capital gains for the top 1% was $1,243,516. The bottom 90% (that's where I am; I don't know about your other readers) included all families with incomes under $104,696 and had an AVERAGE family income of $30,374. These figures are, as I said, from 2006 and income inequality has grown considerably worse since then. POOR rich people, they DO need the tax break Bush gave them to be extended. Sincerely, Kiki Harris PS Historical data shows no correlation between extra income for the very rich and job creation. Also, corporations are now sitting on a great deal of money and not creating jobs. Both groups are, however, funding massive ad campaigns aimed at obtaining more government largesse. For them, not for the likes of people like me. Dear Editor: Last Wednesday, in the height of the holiday season when not many would notice, our Board of Supervisors passed an amendment to an ordinance banning guns in parks. Now hunting will be allowed in the Santa Ysabel Open Space 92036 December 14, 2011 \ \ 3582 Highway 78 at Newman Way Fax 765-2797 Marriages on the Mountain Call Dick Thiken, Chaplain 760-765-1578 Country Weddings Designed for your Call Rev Les Turner 760-443-3930 Preserve. The trails will be closed to everyone but jumor turkey shooters, their parents and mentors for a weekend in March. This program is just the beginning for the gun and hunting industries to host more hunts throughout our county parks and preserves, closing them to the general public. Heavy lobbying by those interests influenced Supervisor Dianne Jacob who introduced the amendment. Supervisors Horn and Cox voted in favor, in spite of reasoned arguments from the public why this is such a dangerous precedent. Thanks to Supervisors Ron Roberts and Pam Slater-Price for votes against the measure and their logical statements about how guns and public parks are a such dangerous combination. Bonnie Gendron Santa Ysabel Recently, a compromise was worked out between the E.P.A. and the Transportation Department with General Motors, Ford, Chrysler, Toyota, Honda, Nissan, BMW and six other major car companies, which would put a net of $4000"in tl~e pocket of every light vehicle owner. The deal was for annual mileage improvements of 5 percent for cars, and a little less for light trucks and S.U.V.'s, until 2025--when U.S. automakers will have to reach a total fleet average of 54.5 miles per gallon. The current average is 27.5 m.p.g. Although a vehicle would cost about $2000 more initially (about 10% or less), it would save at least $6000 in reduced gasoline purchases over the life of the vehicle --- a net gain of $4000. This extra money will certainly give the economy a lift. Even though all the major players in the U.S. auto industry have agreed to support this, Darrell Issa who is our congressman, has taken the lead to block the deal. Issa seems to be indifferent to how important $4000 is to each of us. After all, he is the wealthiest person in the Congress. Certainly a member of the top 1% who have taken very good care of themselves over the past few decades. Not only will this deal put money in our pockets, but it is a significant and long-term contribution to America's energy, environmental, health and national security agendas. It promises to reduce our oil import by more than half. We would then have the opportunity to move away from middle-east oil and continued on page 8 Build Your Own * [Lew Buckaq COFFEE 1921 Main St. call in 9our order: 7E;0 1906 2018 Main Street Michele Harvey : Ot~C Jon Coupal Eric Stamets Ndto" Skag$o: David Lewis Ed Huffman .................. a~l Gra~quist ......
