The often cold, distant style of writing used for much of the reporting about sudden and very sad losses needs to change. In contrast to this cold distancing was David Lewis's story about Reese Skinner. If every newspaper story about a tragic death or severe injury was written in a style similar to David Lewis's story, I believe it would help make our homes and highways, our families' and friends' and our own lives safer. The more time I spend reading news-media writing, and the more time I spend doing writing myself, I sense the strong influence which reporting styles have on the reading public's perception of the world at large. David's story brought out the sanctity of life by expressing warmth, feeling and love through storytelling. I wish that professional reporting and other types of news stories would, for everyone's sake, express the preciousness and sanctity of life on a constant basis, reminding eVeryone, and therefore helping to ensure everyone's safety, well- being, and happiness. Greg Courson Wynola Springs Letter to the Editor I first of all wanted to thank John Raifsnider for his wonderful, lyrical insights in his Bearing Fruit column. He reminds us all of our ultimate connection to the bigger picture. I did have a correction to the information presented in his column in the November 25th issue of the paper. He had talked about the wonderful benefits of rosehips as a fall food. When drying hips, you want to split the hips and take the seeds and hairs out of the fruits before drying them. Not only is it easier to open up the soft fruits before they dry, but they will also shatter when hard, sending pieces everywhere and making it very difficult to separate the seeds from outer fruit. Also, in order to take advantage of their Vitamin C benefits, it is best to eat the dried or fresh fruits or make them into a tea instead of cooking them. High heat destroys most of the Vitamin C, although they will still taste delicious! Blessings in Health, Cristi Lewis, C.Hom. High Road Homeopathy Polar bears are left-handed. December 9, 2009 emoil: / / / 92036 / / / / t -4 Dear Editor, Will be most appreciative if you can print the following letter to the editor in your next issue if space allows (and I hope it does because this is way overdue and needs to get said.) Here goes: All one has to do is pick up the phone and ask for help." Sounds simple, doesn't it, unless one is a lifelong member of the "Thanks, but I can handle it myself okay" club. One day a few weeks ago I resigned from that club and discovered a whole new world of accepting aid from cheerful and willing volunteers. They came to my rescue and helped me out of a formidable situation. But most of all I want to acknowledge the incredible kindness and generosity of my dear friend, Virginia Nunez, bless her heart, who thought she was "taking me in for a few days" only to have me take up residence for what has now been some six weeks and still counting. Virginia, you are my guardian angel. So here's what happened: Faced with an overwhelming job of completing the packing and moving of everything ira my "about to be demolished home" to onsite storage, I finally picked up the phone and called the Julian Lions Club. Dick Thilken answered, listened to my tale of woe, and said he would see what he could Italian 00oda" Volcan Freeze ... BreakIa00, Pa00rie00, Burger00, Lunch gpecial00 ...

Shortly thereafter, his son, Ed Thilken, called to say if he couldn't find enough Lions to come out, he'd recruit some fellows from the American Legion. Long story short, a group of volunteers from both organizations arrived is KJCKillg It UP! Come bY ar)d see our the following Sunday to have at it. Which they did with lightning speed as I watched in awe and wonder and profound thankfulness. The next Sunday they--plus a delightful lady helper from Ramona (you all know who you are, bless your hearts!) - Returned to complete the job since the next day was the deadline. Everything remaining was skillfully packed and carefully stored and the old place was gone soon thereafter. It's a giant step to part with a humble but happy mobile home that saw forty years of love and living, but it was just plain falling apart and beyond repair. Now a brand-new cedar cabin occupies the very same site. If all goes well it should be ready before year's end. Finally, a warm "thank you" to all the wonderful folks who wave and say "Hi" as I drive around Julian with my car full of "stuff' that didn't fmd room in storage and my Teddy Bear passengers smiling out the windows.
