Circling Around by Torchy Hunter
As the editor for Circling Around, I accost people in Hattie Porter Hall wearing my “Tell Me Everything” sign, or, if you’d rather actually think about what you want in here, e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I want to be up to date with you, so here’s what we need: birthdays (especially those with zeros), parties of any kind, promotions, college destinations, anything that you diverse groups are doing is interesting to everyone else. For example, in this issue:
How is Lucy Proulx going to light up the night? Like she doesn’t already, but this is new. What is Her Very High Holiness looking for? Henry Ruddle not only composes this whole rag but makes news, too, only this time he’s not alone. Finally, what gone-and-lamented former member is going to do something really nutso? crazy? way too hard?
Dave and Lucy Proulx will be participating in the “Relay For Life” at Christmas Hill Park in Gilroy on June 19th. It’s put on by the American Cancer Society for three reasons: First, to celebrate the Survivors of this horrible disease, and second, as a way to honor those whose lives have been taken by cancer, and third, as a fundraiser. “Dave and I will be walking the Survivor Walk and the Luminary Walk. I’d like to invite anyone from church who has lost a loved one to cancer or has or had cancer themselves to join us. I’ve been encouraged to bring tissues as this is a very heart-wrenching event.” says Lucy. Call her at 289-9286 for more.
Roberto Padillo is taking his first vacation since moving into the Coordinator position almost 4 years ago--which is something to celebrate! He just can’t keep away though he still wrote all the Spanish translations in this issue!
||Henry Ruddle’s 7-year-old daughter Lily had to go to Stanford for an MRI scan. Was it a bad news? No, she’s participating in the Stanford Math Project. After screening her using several intelligence tests in March, they asked her back for the second part of the test on May 31. She had to solve math problems while lying in a noisy, confined space with her head clamped in place, one hand strapped to an answer box and the other on a squeeze ball she could use as a panic button (although she didn’t need it).
The MRI scan gives researchers another set of data in a four-year (so far) study to compare the brain activity of children doing math in an attempt to find out why some kids struggle and others excel. The best news was that it proved conclusively that Lily does in fact have a brain ... and it’s an active one.
And Henry was in the Mercury News on June 3 with a letter to the editor (the newspaper wrote the headline):
Every measure must pay for itself
There’s a simple way to solve the budget mess in California require that every bill, proposition and measure pay for itself through taxes or spending cuts. Want longer prison sentences or universal health care or a transporttion bond issue? No problem, as long as you also accept the higher taxes or cuts in other programs that will inevitably be necessary to pay for them.
||Julie Gill has been training for the Vineman Triathlon in Napa Valley on August 1. She is doing this to honor her brother-in-law, Roland Franz, who passed away last fall from non-Hodgkin lymphoma, and to help raise funds for cancer research through Team in Training. For more of her story, and to contribute to her effort, see her Team in Training web page at http://tinyurl.com/juliegill.
White Light Corner: the amazing Proulxs, of course. There are some very tough things going on in the beloved community, folks: unemployment for people who have never been unemployed, family difficulties from this as well as the financial crunch.
Be very nice to each other.

Fighting for Our LivesReal Healthcare Reform, June 28th
An informational forum and discussion on healthcare reform sponsored by the Santa Clara Single-Payer Healthcare Coalition and the First Unitarian Church of San Jose will be held Sunday, June 28th, at 1:00 pm at the First Unitarian Church, 160 N. First Street, San Jose. Topics will include: 1) A description of national healthcare systems of other developed countries with better results than the US; 2) Some of the current national proposals and how they rate with President Obama’s criteria of reducing costs, guaranteeing choice, and achieving universal coverage; 3) The main points of HR 676, Improved Medicare for All; 4) A discussion of the healthcare reform process in Washington which has left single-payer off the table, despite overwhelming independent polling results which show support for it from 70 percent of the public, 60 percent of the physicians, the National Organizing Committee of Nurses, as well as broad union, city, and state support.

Jubilee Making Progress for the Poorest Countries
Thanks to your advocacy, the bill that passed the Senate recently includes: 1) An amendment offered by Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH) barring the IMF from capping health and education spending in impoverished countries, and 2) Calls for $2.5 billion in additional grants, debt relief, and inexpensive loans from the IMF to the poorest countries in addition to what the G-20 already promised. Unfortunately, these measures are not enough. Fortunately there is still a chance to improve the bill before final passage. Improvement would include: 1) Congress should urge that $5 billion be raised for the poorest countries using IMF gold and other sources--with an emphasis on debt service relief or grants rather than new loans; 2) Congress should address the impact of IMF policy requirements that force developing countries to severely restrict spending in a time of recession; and, 3) Congress should require greater transparency at the IMF and parliamentary approval for IMF loans.

President Obama’s Speech in Cairo a New Course for Relations Between US & Muslim Communities
Islamic Network Group (ING) welcomes a new course for relations between US and Muslim communities as set out in President Obama’s landmark speech in Cairo. The tone and focus of the visit and speech is a breath of fresh air and gives promise to the vision and mission of ING’s work for the last 16 years, “a world where people of all faiths and none are understood and respected and their contributions valued.” As he so eloquently states after acknowledging the long history and contributions of his host country and the venue where spoke, “I’ve come here to Cairo to seek a new beginning between the United States and Muslims around the world, one based on mutual interest and mutual respect, and one based upon the truth that America and Islam are not exclusive and need not be in competition. Instead, they overlap and share common principles, principles of justice and progress, tolerance and the dignity of all human beings.” Video and full text of Pres. Obama’s speech at: http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/NewBeginning/. Full ING article at: http://www.ing.org/latestnews/default.asp?num=153.

Overcharged For Something? SCC DA’s Office Offers Free Mediation
How many times have we heard it: “If it sounds too good to be true, it’s probably a scam.” Sally Garnett is hardly a cheerleader for the Santa Clara County District Attorney’s Office. After all, prosecutors threw the book at her recently for “lifting” her housemate’s jewelry, she says, landing her in jail for three months. But to her surprise, Garnett found herself turning to her nemesis last week to get help on another matter. After prepaying $63.60 for phone service from inside the jail, Garnett says the company she contracted with didn’t deliver a single call. Instead of busting her, this time the district attorney’s office was ready to lend her a hand with its busy but little-known Consumer Protection Unit. Its members not only fight big fraud cases in court, but also attempt to resolve consumer disputeslike Garnett’sthrough free mediation. No case is too small . . . They save taxpayers money by screening calls for prosecutors who handle fraud cases . . . Consumers also can turn to small claims court, but mediation is often better.

Farmworker Couple Wins $500,000 Verdict Against Bill Collector
According to court records, Credigy Services Corp., a collection agency based in Georgia, had callers threatened to take the Manuel Faustos’ family home and savings, garnish his wages as a forklift operator and ruin their credit. Desperate for help, the couple turned to the Watsonville Law Center, a nonprofit agency that represents the rural poor. The law center hooked them up with Attorney Balam Letona, a Santa Clara Law School graduate who seemed to be heaven sent. Once the couple filed a lawsuit, the company fought back. It subpoenaed most of their children and sought their credit, mortgage and medical records. Credigy brought up past driving charges against Manuel Faustos and that the home they live in, which is in the name of one of their sons, was in foreclosure. After nine days in court, the jurors weren’t buying any of that. They awarded the couple $100,000 in damages and $400,000 in punitive damages.

by Alec “I will survive until the Campout” MacLean
Every year for 20 years at the Church campout, I have gotten together with a mixture of old friends and old friends I’ve just met. Some of these people are very youngheck, a few of them have still been in the womb!
We sit around and get to know each other, go swimming in the river together, share lots and lots of good food and drink together, play Boggle and other games, learn why Rick and Alec make the world’s best barbecue chicken, watch children make friends they’ll keep for years. We nap in the shade.
We bring our own toys to play with, beads, carving, crosswords, knitting, whatever. We do an amazing amount of laughing. We share childcare in a wonderfully tribal fashion. We look at bugs, birds, shooting stars and each other. Maybe we take another nap.
We spend very little money. We share kitchen duties and enjoy it because we’re doing it together. We play music and sing. We finally get a chance to read that book we bought. We hope MaryMary will tell one of her great stories. We watch the teenagers being wonderful to the little kids. We grow closer, happier, more relaxed.
We are the Church campout.
Come join us. Wednesday July 15 - Sunday July 19--or any portion thereof! It’s at McConnell State Park on the Merced River. People who would like more information should contact MaryMary Feldman at firstname.lastname@example.org
