Ignelzi regarding charitable donations, and how a little research goes a long way in how your hard earned dollars are spent by the charity you select. According to Sandra Miniutti of Charity Navigator, "For most (',reputable) charities, about 75 percent of the funds go directly to the programs, 15 percent go to administration and 10 percent to fundraising". That got me thinking of how the SonsoftheAmerican Legion stack up against those standards. First of all the Sons are a registered rnon-profit organization. Any :lonations to the Sons in their charitable endeavors are tax leductible. While I don't have Ihard numbers to work with, I Iknow that fundraising constitutes ;zero dollars in this organization. Admittedly we have spent money on radio advertising with money specifically donated for that purpose. Our efforts are mostly Ilocal though, with the fellows Ihitting the streets and phones, often times missing work to promote the big events. The Imen that are there month after imonth working the breakfasts from dawn crack to afternoon on 1first Sundays, are not paid. I honestly don't know the IPercentage we spend on ;administration. By that, I mean :SAL's contribution to the overall =maintenance and costs of the Legion building in the form of taxes, insurance, utilities and supplies. We do contribute, but recognize the American Legion carries the burden in this regard so the Sons are strong supporters in their fundraising efforts. That leaves the question of how much does SAL contribute to the community? I don't know the percentage but in real dollars SAL contributions approach $30,000.00 per year. For a small town that's pretty good, and that happens because of you. Without you coming to breakfasts, supporting "The Dance" with banner sales and big numbers attending, the Sons couldn't do it. At this writing, the breakfast supporting the JHS Girls Basketball Team will be over. Planning and promotion for he January 2nd breakfast supporting the Alan Cole Wolowski Memorial Fund begins. Don't forget the Legion breakfast on the third Sunday and the year's biggest breakfast for the Wounded Warriors on February 6th. Aging America (NAPSA)-By 2030, there will be about 72 million Americans over 65 years old, more than twice as many as in 2000. A recent survey found that 85 percent of those over 45 want more information about aging issues. Fortunately, the answer to many aging questions is just a call away. The Eldercare Locator, a public service of the U.S. Administration on Aging, is a first step to finding resources for older adults in any U.S. community. This free service connects you to local agencies that provide information about resources and assistance for older adults and those who care for them. It also offers brochures on a variety of topics and caregivers can find support groups and other helpful services. Now, with the "boom" in the older population, the Eldercare Locator has added live operators and additional informational resources. To reach the Eldercare Locator, call (800) 677-1116, Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. EST or visit www.eldercare.gov. The Eldercare Locator is administered by the National Association of Area Agencies on Aging (n4a). December 8, 2010 Turkeys in Julian By Jeff Holt Have you ever seen these big birds take off? Sort of slow and with flaps down they soar into the trees to roost for the night. I don't think these wild birds are good to eat though. Some character who lives up here found one as road kill, took it home, plucked the feathers and cooked the poor thing, said the meat was "tough" These gangly fellows come by our house looking for little things, like bird seed dropped from our bird feeders. The big long neck of theirs swoops down on God knows what! How on earth do they fill those big bodies of theirs? Some say their bodies are not that big--all feathers, some of which adorn our house. They seem to be lying low this week. I warned them that soon they would be toast. A friend from Seattle dropped me a line and said you mean "roast"! They make a weird sort of popping sound when they eat. They always eat together and some turkey always stands point, watching out for the others. They can look through the glass you know and they see me watching them from my office. The cats in the neighborhood just watch them come and go-- too big I guess. Our cat, name is Ming, won't even go after the gophers anymore. She likes to watch the activity underground though Now and then she pokes at a gopher hole. She doesn't watch the turkeys much, gotten used to them. They come up on the back deck and sometimes poop there--a sort of poop deck. I've seen the males fan their feathers and sort of bark at the females--hem them in like a jealous man might do. Their colors can be spectacular in the sun, but their faces are pathetic. A face only a mother could love! There is not a lot of grace in their gate and their sounds are not very melodious. Ben Franklin once wanted to make them the national bird-- something about resilience, like our old republic. But really, can you imagine a contest between this ungainly beast and the Bald Eagle? I wonder which bird is more intelligent? Something odd and reassuring though, when I see them up here in Julian. Some say fish and game introduced them to the area while others say the local Indians brought them here--to hunt and kill. There are lots of hunters up here. Nobody I know has tried to eat one except that fellow that I mentioned earlier. When hiking with friends, and someone spots a group of turkeys, he will always say "Look, Turkeys!" as if we have never seen them. I have photographed them a thousand times. I have yet to get a good shot. These turkeys usually know exactly where I am. Sometimes I've accidentally turned a corner and walked into them: Man do they freak! Big wings start moving and sounding like flapping carpets. I think it's cool that turkeys are here. Kind of unique. Maybe they're around your house too. Perhaps it's because these birds are larger than the others and are still considered wild. Anything wild makes life more interesting. Maybe we should get wild now and then. Make our lives more interesting. Get up into the trees, eat together, be resilient and stand point for each other. Take off the ground sometime and soar to God knows where. Like the Pilgrims of old, head for some distant shore. The future is called "perhaps," which is the only possible thing to call the future. And the only important thing is not to allow that to scare you. -- Tennessee Williams I[" "Serving the Community of Julian" II GATED, SECURE STORAGE SITES -- FULLY ENCLOSED YARD ]] INDUSTRIAL/BUSINESS SITE FOR MACHINERY & EQUIPMENT STORAGE II Outside Storage- Trailers, Boats, Cars, RV's Unit Sizes - 5x10 10x10, 10x15, 10x20, 10x30 3582 Highway 78 at Newman Way 00700o00765.2601 ,,.x 765-2797
