Like you, I have taken notice of the many tv reality shows now offered on several cable tv networks.
Tales of the Yukon, of Alaska, of gold mining way up north, of living ‘off the grid,’ of hardship in wintertime . . . and it makes for interesting television.
To watch. Not to live. At least not for me. My idea of roughing it is the Hilton Hotel. I have not been to the Yukon but I have been to Alaska, several times. Fact is, a great uncle of mine was one of the pioneer settlers in the small town of Talkeetna, north of Anchorage.
Alaska is a different way of life. Even in the cities it’s not all that unusual to look out in your yard and see a moose . . . or deer. You and me? We’d be thrilled. Alaskans just shrug if off as an everyday occurence. Alaska is a beautiful state but there are warts.
I noticed, for example, while driving from Anchorage to Fairbanks, that it is not uncommon to see an absolute mansion, built of logs (much too grandiose to call a ‘log cabin,’ but, indeed, built of logs. Nicely manicured lawns, lovely forest background, everything nice and neat.
Then, less than a mile from that beautiful home . . . a tarpaper shack, with some logs, a car or two out front, up on concrete blocks. Looks like something out of Tobacco Road.
The Aurora Borealis near Fairbanks, Alaska
A rather severe and distasteful juxtaposition of architecture.
What happens is . . . there are no zoning laws in Alaska to speak of. And those that do exist are often ignored . . . perhaps less so in the cities . . but in the backcountry you would not want to be a code enforcement officer for zoning laws. You’d probably have a terrible accident somewhere in the woods and never be seen again. Alaskans tend to be mighty independent. And stubborn. And strong. And innovative. You need a little bit of each in The Paper - 760.747.7119
order just to survive in that country. And that climate.
In the summertime you have the Alaskan National Air Force attacking you. Here in the lower 48 we would call them ‘mosquitoes.’ And you have “no-see-ums,” . . . tiny gnats that fly around your face, get into your nose, your ears, and make life rather uncomfort-
able. Still, there are the smells of the forest . . . pine resin . . . flowers . . . coffee brewing over a campfire . . . and barbecued beef . . . or perhaps venison from a deer you shot yourself.
Those same lovely, tastetempting smells, however, are also noticed by bears . . . and if they are hungry and in the area ... you just might get an
unexpected visit. Experienced visitors to Alaska, and those who already live there, have learned that you have to cache your food . . .usually high up in a tree ... or in some bear-proof container . . . like an armored truck. Bears are beautiful to see in their natural habitat . . . but they are also very territorial

and protective of their family.
Most every year you hear of an individual who was jogging, or riding a bike, or riding a horse, and they were attacked by a bear. The attack results in a severe mauling, often fatal. This is particularly true if one stumbles into bear country where the sow (female) bear has a cub or two nearby. She protects those cute little cubs and treats anyone who is anywhere near them as a predatory enemy. There is beauty in Alaska but there is also lots of adventure, and danger.
Those who live in Alaska are a hardy people. One learns what softies you and I have become when we explore a bit of Alaska’s history.
When we visited Talkeetna, for example, we sought out the log cabin my great-uncle Kurt Tollefson had built. It was about five miles, maybe more, outside of the town of Talkeetna.
I learned that Uncle Kurt would walk all the way into Talkeetna to meet the train and pick up roof shingles for his cabin, load them on his

If you're going to leave anything, please make sure it's something we'd like to have. ' ••••• 'There may be 50 ways to leave your lover, but there are only 4 ways out of this airplane' ••••• An airline pilot wrote that on this particular flight he had hammered his ship into the runway really hard. The airline had a policy which required the first officer to stand at the door while the
shoulders and then walk all the way back to the cabin, then make as many return trips as necessary to deliver the entire load of shingles to his cabin.
Five miles? Walking? With loads of shingles on his shoulders and back? You and me likely couldn’t hack it. We take the car to run to the corner grocery store for milk and eggs. Though the lakes and ocean areas are beautiful, the rivers surprised me. Far from crystal clear rivers, gurgling over pebbles and boulders, the river waters are a rather heavy grey. They may look blue from a distance but up close they are very, very greyish in color. This is largely due to the silt acquired from the bottom of glaciers, from which much of the river water originates . . in addition to the silt the rushing river acquires as it rushes down the riverbeds.
Most of my life I have lived for fishing and other outdoor sports (other than hunting; I don’t like hunting). If you had told me I’d go to Alaska one day and not wet a line I would have suggested you were a candidate for the State Home for the Quaint . . . but, in fact, I went to Alaska and did not fish. passengers exited, smile, and give them a 'Thanks for flying our airline.' He said that, in light of his bad landing, he had a hard time looking the passengers in the eye, thinking that someone would have a smart comment. Finally everyone had gotten off except for a little old lady walking with a cane. She said, 'Sir, do you mind if I ask you a question?' 'Why, no, Ma'am,' said the pilot. 'What is it?' The little old lady said, 'Did we land, or were we shot down?' ••••• As the plane landed and was coming to a stop at Ronald Reagan, a lone voice came over the loudspeaker: 'Whoa, big fella, WHOA!' ••••• After a particularly rough landing during thunderstorms in Memphis, a flight attendant on a Northwest flight announced, 'Please take care when opening the overhead compartments because sure as hell everything has shifted after a landing like that.' ••••• Another flight attendant's comment on a less than perfect landing: 'We ask you to please remain seated as Captain Kangaroo bounces us to the terminal.' ••••• Overheard on an American Airlines flight into Amarillo, Texas, on a particularly windy and bumpy day: During the
The Kenai Peninsula is famous for its fishing, particularly halibut. However, during the time we visited, sometime in the late 80’s or early 90’s, there had been extensive flooding and the Kenai Peninsula was not the first choice to visit. So we decided to rent a motorhome and drive through Denali National Park all the way up to Fairbanks. It was a good decision.
We stopped in Wasilla, (home of former Governor Sarah Palin) where we had cousins living. We had a nice visit with them and a pleasant meal. They were in the city and not the outback so we enjoyed all the comforts of civilization . . . even though I declined their offer to sleep in their home and opted instead to sleep in our motorhome. (I often get up at 3 or 4 in the morning to write and did not want to disturb them.)
The trip through Denali was, as you would guess, beautiful to behold. Plenty of forests, broken up occasionally with grassy meadows, wildlife . . . and the aformentioned architectural puzzle of beautiful homes followed by trash

Please remain in your seats with your seat belts fastened while the Captain taxis what's left of our airplane to the gate!' ••••• 'Your seat cushions can be used for flotation; and, in the event of an emergency water landing, please paddle to shore and take them with our compliments.' ••••• 'As you exit the plane, make sure to gather all of your belongings. Anything left behind will be distributed evenly among the flight attendants. Please do not leave children or spouses......except for that gentleman over there.' ••••• Heard on Southwest Airlines just after a very hard landing in Salt Lake City .. The flight attendant came on the intercom and said, 'That was quite a bump, and I know what y'all are thinking. I'm here to tell you it wasn't the airline's fault, it wasn't the pilot's fault, it wasn't the flight attendant's fault, it was the asphalt.' ••••• After a real crusher of a landing in Phoenix , the attendant came on with, 'Ladies and Gentlemen, please remain in your seats until Captain. Crash and the Crew have
shacks a short distance further. We stopped in Talkeetna for a day or two. Quite an experience.
Talkeetna is the meeting place for all those crazy people who decide they want to climb Mt. Denali (or, in the old days, we called it Mt. McKinley). Denali is an Athabaskan Indian name which means, “The High One.”
It is the highest mountain in North America at 20, 237 feet. The first verified climb of this monster was June 7, 1913. In 1951 the West Buttress route was climbed . . . which is the safest climb, thus is the more frequently used route. Creatures from all over the planet come to Talkeetna to start their climb up the mountain. Testimony to this is found by a monument listing

And, once the tire smoke has cleared and the warning bells are silenced, we'll open the door and you can pick your way through the wreckage to the terminal.' ••••• Part of a flight attendant's arrival announcement: 'We'd like to thank you folks for flying with us today. And, the next time you get the insane urge to go blasting through the skies in a pressurized metal tube, we hope you'll think of US Airways.' ••••• Heard on a Southwest Airline flight - 'Ladies and gentlemen, if you wish to smoke, the smoking section on this airplane is on the wing and if you can light 'em, you can smoke 'em.' ••••• An elderly married couple was at home watching TV.

the names of those climbers who died on the mountain, attempting the climb. It is a large monument with lots of names. I found my uncle’s grave there in the Talkeetna cemetery. He did not rise to greet me as I imagine he was indisposed at the time.
While sipping my wine and waiting for my ex-wife to finish her shower and shampoo I just listened to the conversations within the saloon and did a fair amount of people-watching.
One tall, skinny, red-headed gal came in and sat next to her girl friend already sitting at the bar and proceeded to talk, rather loudly. Patrons of the saloon had no difficulty tuning in on her conversations, observations and revelations. One in particular caught me unaware and left me wondering what I had gotten myself into.
She said, loudly, “I haven’t had a bowel movement in three days!” Only she didn’t say ‘bowel movement.’ Far more earthy.
We rented a pilot and plane to take us up and around the peaks and valleys of Denali Mountain, hoping to see some grizzlies. Our pilot pointed out two or three dark spots in the snow that appeared to be moving and he said they were bear. They might have been. Or they could have been just dark spots in the snow and the pilot wanted to please his pasengers. We’ll never know for sure. In downtown Talkeetna they have a saloon in a place called the Fairview Inn (see photo below). You can go upstairs and take a hot shower for, I think it was 50 cents per half hour.
We had a shower on board our motorhome but my then-wife decided she’d like a bit larger facility and have a nice relaxing shampoo and shower. We decided to have a drink first and then I would have a glass of wine while she went upstairs and showered. While at the bar I ordered a glass of Chardonnay. The bartender looked at me kinda funny. Apparently, only women order Chardonnay in Alaska. The rough and tumble men apparently whisky or rum or, at the least, beer. But wine? For a guy?
This was information I didn’t really need nor wanted to know and was delighted to see my ex had finished her shower; I paid the tab and we headed out to do a bit more exploring.
Talkeetna holds an annual event that is remarkable. The Wilderness Woman Contest is organized by the Talkeetna Bachelor Society and is held in Talkeetna, Alaska, on the first weekend of December. The contest began in 1986 and is open to single women aged 21 or older. The winner gets a fur hat, a plaque, and sometimes a trip to Europe. The contest includes at least three timed events highlighting the skills that a Talkeetna bachelor would find most desirable in a woman. The events change from year to year, but have included:
hauling firewood fetching water driving a snow-machine harnessing a sled-dog team catching fish climbing a tree shooting a moose or a ptarmigan making a sandwich and opening a beverage for a reclining bachelor watching Sunday-after noon football on a simulated TV
A word to the ladies: if you are anxious to find a man, to find true love, to find adventure, head to Alaska! Women are at a premium there and will be wined and dined to excess in order that the bachelors may woo you and, hopefully, win you.
The Annual Bachelor Society Benefit Auction and Bachelor Ball takes place in the evening after the Wilderness Woman Contest. The winner is crowned and contestants bid on eligible bachelors. Only single ladies aged
over 21, and members of the Talkeetna Bachelor Society, are permitted to enter the auction room.
A further, cautionary note to the ladies: Only accept this idea if your idea of a fun life includes: living in the wilderness, enduring deep, deep cold, enjoying the pleasant experience of using an outhouse as your bathroom facility, enjoy killing, gutting, and preparing wild or domestic animals so that you don’t starve to death, wading through hip deep snow, running a trap line in the dead of winter, tending to your own bruises, cuts, illnesses, broken bones, and giving birth. You may have electricity, if you have a generator, but chances are you won’t have running water. You’ll probably have to “fetch water” from a nearby river, stream, lake or well. The nights are long in the wintertime (but to compensate the days are long in the summertime), and living off the grid can be rather challenging. Still, they say, love conquers all. So if you’ve a mind to, head north to Alaska, as the song says. Just be prepared. Our visit to Talkeetna completed we headed north to Fairbanks. Just before arriving at Fairbanks we finally saw our first moose. It was a female, on the side of the road, just on the edge of the forest. It was late summer, early fall, when we arrived. The tourist season was pretty much over so we had much of Fairbanks to ourselves without having to fight large crowds of tourists. Indeed, some of the smaller tourist venues had shut down for the season. One heart rending episode happened in Fairbanks. We called my youngest son, Kenny, who at that time was managing “Lyle’s at Dixon Lake,” for me. As soon as Kenny answered the phone I could tell something was wrong. He was crying.
“Kenny, what’s wrong? What’s going on?” “Loren McCorkindale is dead,” he sobbed.
Loren McCorkindale?! This kid was movie star handsome. He had come to our home many times and was a close friend of Kenny’s. What we learned was that Loren was on his first day on the job at a gold mining company in Fairbanks. He was given the job of driving one of the ore trucks and while crossing an earthen dam, the road gave way and the truck rolled over, killing Loren instantly. First day on the job!
We contacted his mother and offered our help; we made inquiries and we sought legal representation from several attorneys, one of whom was on the Larry King Show quite often. I don’t recall his name now but he was a colorful, flamboyant fella. We contacted him and he, and several other attorneys, advised us that the mining companies and their attorneys and lobbyists had lobbied the Alaska legislature so heavily that it was next to impossible to recover damages for death or major injuries because of the favorable legislation for the mining companies. To my knowledge, Loren’s mom never received any compensation for his death. I’m not even sure she ever received an apology from the company. It devastated Kenny . . . and it put a pretty sour note to our visit to Fairbanks as well. Not a pleasant memory at all. Such a handsome, lovely kid!
We did the usual tourist things of panning for gold at a gold panning site . . .and we got a few grain of gold that almost paid our admission fee to the venue. We visited a distant cousin and his family who lived just outside Fairbanks. We shared a meal with them and then took our leave . . . leaving Fairbanks the next morning to return to Anchorage.
We had a more recent occasion to visit Alaska . . . this time via a cruise ship. The cruise followed an International Kiwanis Convention in Vancouver, British Columbia (one of the most beautiful cities in the world!) Miles and miles of coastline slipped past and we marveled at how much timber there remains in Alaska. I see no danger of over-harvesting trees in Alaska . . . the state is covered with them.
We’d stop at several ports of call and had the opportunity to visit glaciers, go shopping, and buy souvenirs. We hit Ketchikan, Juneau, and some out of the way place that was next to useless as a port stop. Internet service was sketchy at each of the cities where we’d make a port call. I use the Internet when on holiday to file stories for The Paper and to edit it. It’s a pain in the patootie to do it that way . . but it can be done. It’s a lot easier, however, when the Internet service is dependable. Even the outrageously overpriced ship’s Internet service was terribly slow and way too expensive. We try to never use a cruise line’s Internet service

A man was arrested after he allegedly sexually assaulted a woman and punched a dog inside a smoke shop in North County.
A 911 operator overheard a scuffle on an open phone line at 9:20 p.m. Sunday which lead to deputies getting dispatched to the 900 block of W. San Marcos Boulevard, according to San Diego Sheriff’s Lt. Jeffery Duckworth. When deputies arrived, they arrested 27-year-old Jason Edward Stey of San Marcos for allegedly attacking and sexually assaulting a woman inside a smoke shop, Duckworth said.
The victim told deputies Stey choked her and punched her numerous times before assaulting her sexually, according to Duckworth. The victim said her dog was getting between her and Stey, and Stey punched the dog causing the dog to run away. Paramedics transported the victim to a hospital to be treated for her wounds. Stey was booked in Vista Detention Facility and held on $300,000 bail. He faces several charges including rape, assault

On Saturday, January 3, at 5:31 p.m., the Carlsbad Police Department received a call regarding a serious injury traffic collision located in the 7200 block of Columbine Dr. Officers responded and found that an off-road Kawasaki motorcycle ridden by 39 yearold Jason Meerbergen of Carlsbad had collided with a parked vehicle. Carlsbad Fire Department personnel responded and provided medical treatment to the injured rider. The rider was transported by helicopter to Scripps La Jolla Hospital where he is undergoing treatment for his injuries.
A preliminary investigation has revealed that the motorcycle was northbound on Columbine Dr. when it struck a vehicle parked along the east curb. It is unknown why the motorcycle collided with the parked vehicle at this time. Alcohol or drug intoxication is not suspected to be a factor in the collision. Further investigation into the cause and the extent of the rider’s injuries is forthcoming.

Some years ago we took our grandkids on a Laura Engels Wilder tour.
In studying up for the two trips we made we came across this statement in one of her writings. Wilder insisted that she “told the truth” in her books, but not the whole truth: “There were some stories,” she says, “I wanted to tell but would not be responsible for putting in a book for children, even though I knew them as a child.” One of them was this web site I found concerning the Benders of the latest "Paper." /s/Dr. Irvin H.

Editor’s Note: Our research showed the Engels family did, indeed, live in the same area as the Benders but the Engels had departed in 1871, when Laura would have only been four years old and this was before the murders were discovered in 1873. Any recall of the Bender murders by the Engels family were likely second-hand information gleaned from former neighbors.

because of the highway robbery fees they charge and the slow Internet service they provide. Once back in Vancouver, all was well. We were back in civilization.
Bottom line? I enjoyed both visits to Alaska . . . but I definitely would not want to live there. Just not my cup of tea. Wouldn’t even want to live in the larger cities such as Anchorage or Fairbankis. I’m not cut out to be a pioneer.
I’ve not yet visited the Yukon and not sure I shall.
A point of clarification: Those of us who live in the lower 48 tend to join Alaska and the Yukon at the hip. T’ain’t so. They are two separate and distnict entities.
Alaska is a state, part of the United States of America. The Yukon belongs to our great neighbors to the north.
The Yukon is the westernmost and smallest of Canada's three federal territories. Whitehorse is the territorial capital and Yukon's only city of any size, (about 23,000) The only other
‘city,’ and we use the term loosely, is Dawson City, with about 1300. The territory was split from the Northwest Territories in 1898. As rough and tough as the outback of Alaska is, the Yukon is even more so.
If you’re a fisherman or hunter you’re likely to love either Alaska or the Yukon. If, like us, you prefer the luxury hotels, the fine restaurants, and quick, smooth, effort-free transportation, then you may want to stay hunkered down in the lower 48 or, at the most, visit and stay only in Anchorage, Fairbanks, possibly Juneau (the state capital). The Yukon has a large Indian population. Most of us first learned of the Yukon from history books that described the Klondike Gold Rush of 1897.
Winters can be bitterly cold in the Yukon; it hit minus 60 degrees on three occasions, in February of 1947 the temperature dropped to minus 84 degrees. In the summertime much of Canada endures extreme heat, much like we do. But, in the Yukon, the temperature in summertime has gotten as

A “Hidden” Gas Tax to Welcome in the New Year
As you all know, California’s gasoline prices are among the highest in the United States. Fortunately, as a result of a number of factors including increased drilling nationwide, gasoline prices have been falling significantly over the last few months.
Gasoline taxes are a big part of the per-gallon price of gasoline. At 68 cents per gallon, California’s gas tax is the nation’s second-highest. The intended purpose of California’s gas tax, though excessive, has been to fund highways and transportation projects. Now however, California motorists will be paying an even higher new tax imposed upon them by the California Air Resources Board. This tax, estimated at 20 to 90 cents per gallon, isn’t designed to finance highways or mass transit. Instead, the intended purpose is to help save the world

This “cap and trade” program, under which California has been joined only by Quebec as a trading partner, is an attempt by our state to lead the fight against global climate change. Unfortunately, these carbon purchase requirements will now be extended to oil and gasoline refineries. Ultimately the cost will be passed on to consumers.
On December 1st, I joined Senator Ted Gaines, R – Roseville, and Assemblyman Jim Patterson, R – Fresno, to co-author Senate Bill 1 and Assembly Bill 23. Passage of either bill will eliminate this excessive and needless new burden on California’s hardpressed motorists.

God Bless and don't fergit ta say yer prayers! Country Wisdom
A bumble bee is faster than a John Deere tractor. Country fences need to be horse high, pig tight and bull strong. Don't corner something meaner than you. Don't go hunting with a fellow named Chug-A-Lug. Don't name a pig you plan to eat. Don't sell your mule to buy a plow. Every path has some puddles. Forgive your enemies. It messes with their heads. It don't take a very big person to carry a grudge. Lazy and Quarrelsome are ugly sisters. Life is not about how fast you run, or how high you climb, but how well you bounce. Life is simpler when you plow around the stumps. Man is the only critter who feels the need to label things as flowers or weeds. Meanness don't happen overnight. Mortgaging a future crop is saddling a wobbly colt. Most of the stuff people worry about never happens.

Never lay an angry hand on a kid or an animal, it just ain't helpful. The best sermons are lived, not preached. To know how country folks are doing, look at their barns, not their houses. Trouble with a milk cow is she won't stay milked. Two can live as cheap as one if one don't eat. When you wallow with pigs, expect to get dirty. Words that soak into your ears are whispered, not yelled. You can catch more flies with honey than vinegar, assuming you want to catch flies. You can't unsay a cruel thing. Quotes of the Day

Among his many top film performances include “Brother Rat,” “Oklahoma,” “Captain Newman, M.D.” and “The Longest Yard.” Prior to the War, Albert had toured Mexico working as a clown and high-wire artist with a Circus, but secretly, he worked for U.S. Army intelligence, photographing German U-boats moored in Mexican harbors.
Author’s Note: One of our readers requested a historical note on the very full and eventful life of Eddie Albert. Edward Albert Heimberger had a very long resume that included being a businessman, insurance salesman, nightclub singer, circus performer, Army intelligence agent, pioneer television star, Hollywood character actor, environmental activist, and World War II decorated Naval hero. Better known in TV and movies audiences as Eddie Albert, he was born April 22, 1906, in Rock Island, Ill. He was nominated twice for Best Supporting Actor
On Sept. 9, 1942, Albert enlisted in the United States Navy and became an officer. He was awarded the Bronze Star with Combat "V" for his heroism during the 1943 invasion of Tarawa. As commander of a landing craft, Albert, under heavy enemy fire, rescued 77 Marines stranded offshore.
As a teenager, he went to Central High School in Minneapolis and joined the drama club with schoolmate Harriette Lake (later known as actress Ann Sothern). They graduated in the class of 1926. Then Albert entered the University of Minnesota, where he majored in business. After graduation, he embarked on a business career, but the stock market crash in 1929, left him unemployed. Albert stopped using his last name since it invariably was mispronounced as

Oceanside expects to welcome an additional In-N-Out Burger restaurant later this year near the northern entrance to the city.
The City Council unanimously approved the project on North Coast Highway, west of Interstate 5, during its Dec. 17 meeting. Council members praised the popular hamburger chain for bringing another location to Oceanside.
The new restuarant will replace a Carrow’s diner that opened in 1990 on the one-acre site. Prior to that, the site housed a Bob’s Big Boy Restaurant that opened in 1973. The restaurant will have indoor seating for 76 people and outdoor tables for an additional 40 customers. It will also have 43 parking spaces. The chain operates another Oceanside location on Frazee Road near state Route 76.

Escondido, CA—In a 2002 issue of Neurosurgical Focus, a peerreviewed article was published by a Dr. Michael D. Martin, MD et al. in which the third sentence states: “The disc itself is active tissue that contains significant mechanisms for self-repair.” That article was published by a neurosurgeon and written direct-ly for neurosurgeons.
“The Disc Itself Is Active Tissue...”
So what does that really mean to us? It tells us that the disc itself does have a God-given ability to heal and repair if provided the proper mechanisms for self-healing. There is a specific mechanism inherent in each of the spinal discs called the “pump mechanism of disc nutri-tion” (see Fig 1). When this mechanism is not working properly, the spinal discs will begin to die causing bulges, herniations, and eventually spinal stenosis.
The spinal disc is one of the very few tissues in the body that does not have a direct blood supply for circulation. The only way that the disc gets the circulation of water, oxygen and nutrients for self-repair is via this specific disc pump mechanism. What happens when you decrease cir-culation in any type of tissue, whether it be animal tissue, plant tissue or human tissue? Exactly, it begins to become weak and begins to degenerate.
brown leaves are the plant’s problem? Of course not, the leaves turning brown is just a condition that is telling you that there is something wrong with the plant. The plant is unhealthy and needs water and nutrients. You could spray paint the leaves green but it just covers up the condition. The underlying problem still exists and will continue to produce brown leaves until you fix the actual problem. and tingling that most experience with bulging, herni-ated or degenerative discs are NOT the problem. The definition of a symptom: “something that indicates the existence of something else.” It is just like the dashboard of your car telling you that something is wrong (brake lights out, engine needs checked, overheating, etc.) Those lights that appear in your car dash are NOT the problem. You can remove the lights surgically or put a piece of duct tape over the lights but the problem will NOT be fixed...the problem is still present. Let’s take a look at a plant for example...if the leaves on a plant begin to turn brown, would you say that the

Two tiny bodies found outside a Fallbrook home last week were twin girls, according to authorities. Other than that, little is known.
In your spine, when the pump mechanism of disc nutrition fails, the disc will begin to de-generate and become weak. This weakness in the disc is what produces the bulging, herniated, and degenerative discs.
The treatment that is provided at Dr. Heilman’s Spine and Neuropathy Care Center in Escondido is revolutionary and is specifically designed to artificially re-create the pump mecha-nism in the discs which allows the spinal discs to heal and re-pair. The best part of the treat-ment is that it uses no drugs, no injections, and no surgery. Plus it’s painless and many patients relax and fall asleep while un-dergoing the treatment. The amount of treatment needed to allow the discs to heal and repair varies from person to person and can only be determined after a detailed neurological and orthopedic evaluation. We do NOT accept everyone for treatment and will let you know if we can accept your case for treatment.
Dr. Stephen Heilman, DC at the Spine and Neuropathy Care Center in Escondido, CA will do a spinal disc severity examination to determine the
Now the symptoms of pain, numbness,
extent of your disc damage for only $27. This examination will consist of a detailed neurological evaluation, extensive orthopedic testing, and a detailed analysis of the findings of your evaluation. He will sit down with you and go over your condition with you in complete detail. You will know exactly what is causing all your pain (or other symptoms).
Dr. Stephen Heilman, DC
Dr. Heilman will be offering this spinal disc severity examination from now until January 25, 2015. Call 760-480-4480 to make an appointment to determine if your spinal discs can be treated.

Have a Blessed and Happy New Year! Prayer Ministry Dial-a-Prayer 760.746.6611
A Fallbrook homeowner who lives near St. Peter’s Catholic the Apostle Parish, a Catholic Church in Fallbrook, called 911 when he found two newborns at the end of his driveway. Sheriff’s officials last Friday described the bodies as fullydeveloped fetuses, wrapped in a towel, and were at least 20 weeks along in gestation and still attached to the placenta.
The Medical Examiner’s office declined to say whether the girls were alive at birth or stillborn, or how far along they were in gestation, citing the ongoing investigation. Sheriff’s homicide Lt. John Maryon said Monday the department has received several tips they hope will lead them to the parents of the twins. He also said detectives are exploring the use of DNA to help identify the parents. The homeowner who discovered the bodies told detectives that he initially thought he’d seen a blanket wrapped around a doll just outside of his

“Hamburger.” He moved to New York City in 1933, where he cohosted a radio show. After the show's three-year run, Albert was offered a film contract by Warner Bros.
Eddie Albert became one of the earliest television actors, performing live in one of RCA's first television broadcasts. Albert wrote and performed in the very first teleplay, The Love Nest, which was aired “live” on Nov. 6, 1936.
In 1938, he made his feature film debut in the Hollywood version of “Brother Rat” with Ronald Reagan and Jane Wyman, reprising his Broadway role of "Bing" Edwards. Then, he starred in “On Your Toes.” Back on Broadway he did hit shows such as “The Seven Year Itch” (1952–1955) and in 1960 Albert replaced Robert Preston in “The Music Man.”
In 1965, Albert starred in “Green Acres,” co-starring Eva Gabor as his urbanite, spoiled wife. The show was an immediate hit. Then, in 1975, Albert starred in the popular crime drama “Switch” as a retired police officer, Frank McBride, who goes to work as a private detective. In his personal life, Albert married Mexican actress Margo María Castilla in 1945. They had a son, Edward Jr., in 1951, who also became an actor. They adopted a daughter, Maria, who became her father's business manager. Margo Albert died from brain cancer in 1980.
In his final years, Albert suffered from Alzheimer’s. Edward Jr., put his acting career on hold to care for his father. Albert senior died of pneumonia in 2005 at the age of 99. He is interred at Westwood Village Memorial Park Cemetery, next to his late wife and close to his Green Acres co-star Eva Gabor. Edward Jr. died a year after his father, suffering from lung cancer. He was 55.

Any questions about the hazards of visiting the Yukon?
Interested readers may want to check their cable television channels for “Yukon Men,” a reality show filmed in the Yukon which gives a good description of the trials and tribulations of those who live and try to survive within a harsh, often unforgiving, area. Our geography lesson on where and what the Yukon is being completed, let us now turn back to Alaska. If you have an intereset in Alaska, probably the easiest, most comfortable to visit is by cruise line. You can sail the inside passage, see many glaciers, visit many Alaskan towns, but probably not see much of the outback . . . at least not up close and personal.
Once you’ve had an Alaskan cruise or two, you should have a fairly good feel for the state and much of its culture. Next time, you may wish to fly in, rent a motorhome and tour the state, or take one or more of the guided tours that take you from Anchorage to Denali, and on to Fairbanks.
The smaller communities and towns are where you’ll get to see the real Alaska. Talk to some locals. Not very large shopping centers once you get into the smaller towns, but there are grocery stores, markets, and, taverns, where you can find a comfortable chair and strike up conversations with local residents and hear all the tales of Alaska, some of which just might even be true. If you are a hunter, fisherman, camper, hiker, or one of those silly mountain climbers, you don’t need me to guide you. You know there are tons of outfitters and guides who would be happy to place themselves in your service. Float plane pilots are a neat way to get around in Alaska . . . sometimes the only way if you’re going deep into the wilderness to catch that world record fish, or to find major big game trophy animals.
While I have great desire to visit the Yukon . . . I might be tempted to visit Alaska at least one more time. As I said earlier, it’s an interesting place to visit.
I just don’t wanna live there.

Escondido • Mayor Sam Abed Green-waste Cart Rollout
At the September 24 City Council meeting, Jeff Ritchie of Escondido Disposal outlined his company’s plan to deliver automated green-waste carts to all city residents at no additional charge. The rollout is set to begin January 12, 2015 and finish by February 6. Current single-family residential customers will receive a 95-gallon, green, wheeled cart – which is substantially larger than their existing 65-gallon trash and recycling carts. The green-waste carts will replace the current practice of putting individual trash cans filled with green
waste at the curb. The contents of those cans will no longer be collected, once residents receive their wheeled carts. Residents who wish to dispose of their old cans should leave a note on the cans directing EDI to pick them up on their regular trash day. Residents may request up to two additional green-waste carts at no charge. More than three carts will incur a nominal fee. Smaller carts – 65-gallon – also may be requested. Some residents already may be using the wheeled, green-waste carts for a charge – that rental fee will be dropped from their bills. For any further questions, please call the city’s Recycling Division at (760) 839-4361.

The driver of the truck, a 42year-old Bonsall man, said he was driving his Dodge Ram 3500 pickup east on Fruitvale Road, about a mile east of Cole Grade, about 2:15 p.m. when he turned left into a driveway, in front of a motorcycle headed west on Fruitvale, he told CHP officer. The motorcycle rider, Stephen Laird of Valley Center, braked and the Harley Davidson motorcycle skidded and went down, the CHP said. It crashed into the right side of the truck and the motorcyclist was killed. The collision is still being investigated, Martin said. It is unknown if alcohol or drugs were a factor. Escondido Police Investigate SUV Crash Into Yard
And SUV slammed through a fence and a block wall and scraped two palm trees before ending up in a backyard early Monday. Sgt. Jim Lanigan reports that police received a call around 12:25 a.m. that a vehicle was in the backyard of a home on Arboles Place near West Valley Parkway, said police Sgt. Jim
It’s Sunday morning and our first major event “Unveiled” takes place this evening. Keynote speeches and press conferences go on all day today and tomorrow. The show itself opens Tuesday morning. The latest analytics on worldwide PC OS (operating system) market percentages are just in and there are some real stunners. NetApplications surveys website visits identifying what OS and browser are being used. This survey includes 160 million individual visits. The December statistics show some remarkable trends. Windows 8X (8/8.1) plummeted in market share falling from 15% to 13%. Windows XP jumped past Win 8X as its share rose from 14% to 18%. Windows 7 held steady at around 55%. Apple did well to hold on to its 5%.
Google’s browser (Chrome) and OS (Android) dominate the mobile market and now Chrome and Firefox have ended Microsoft’s dominant position in PC browsers. It is rumored that Microsoft may announce the death of IE in favor of a lighter more agile browser code named “Spartan.” It may be embedded in (or at least available with) Win 10 later this year. They may make that announcement at CES. Microsoft will be previewing the business version (Professional) of Win 10 here at CES in the next few days. We will be attending their press conferences and talking with their marketing geniuses and we won’t be pitching softballs. We want to hear how
In addition to emphasizing Microsoft’s Win 8X disaster, the December statistics further embarrassed Microsoft by exposing the continuing erosion of its integrated browser, IE (Internet Explorer). Upon investigation, officers found blood inside the white Jeep Cherokee but no driver. The vehicle sustained major damage in the crash.
The investigation continues.

Microsoft and Apple are both losing market share to Google’s OS and browser in mobile applications. It would be fun to talk with Apple but they won’t be here. Apple never shows up where they might have to compete head to head with real technology companies. We’ll tell you all about it next week.
of the day. More is great. These dogs are house-broken.
The registered owner of the SUV lives nearby and was contacted by police. He was found to have injuries that required hospitalization but denied being involved in the crash. Lanigan said that because there were no witnesses, officers are gathering evidence from the car to try to determine who was driving. As of press time there was insufficient evidence to issue a citation or make an arrest.
they spin the failure of their Win 8X and their inability to gain traction in the growing mobile markets. It will be interesting to see how they plan to keep Windows 7 from becoming another XP. Businesses and home users seem quite happy with Win 7 and so far Microsoft hasn’t come up with anything new and exciting for Windows 10.
Would You Consider Helping Save Rescued Dogs by Fostering Them?
The Puppy Coalition Foundation rescues many dogs from regional kill shelters. These dogs are often rescued on their last day of life in these “shelters.” The recipe for providing a foster home for a rescued dog is simple: 1.) A little space for a doggie bed somewhere in your home. We will even provide a bed.
2.) Spend a little time with the dog to go out and do “their business” and get some exercise walking. We like to suggest at least 45 minutes over the course
3.) Then add love. These dogs crave love because in the preceding months they have gotten little and they all yearn for close relationships with humans.
The Puppy Coalition will provide dog food and handle veterinary needs.
We will work around your schedule to show the foster dogs to those who may be interested and potential adopters.
We believe that you will find it personally rewarding helping a rescued dog to get a fresh start in a new life. If you would like to learn more about this opportunity to volunteer to help save some of these wonderful animals, call Bruce at 760-612-9156. The Paper - one stop shopping!

SUPERIOR COURT OF CALIFORNIA, COUNTY OF SAN DIEGO VISTA DIVISION 325 S. Melrose Vista, Ca. 92081 760.201.8094 SUMMONS (Family Law) CASE NO. DN175808
NOTICE TO RESPONDENT: HEIDI BAILEY You are being sued.
Petitioner’s name is: GREG CARLOMAGNO
You have 30 calendar days after this Summons and Petition are served on you to file a Response (form FL-120 or FL-123) at the court and have a copy served on the petitioner. A letter or phone call will not protect you.
If you do not file your Response on time, the court may make orders affecting your marriage or domestic partnership, your property, and custody of your children. You may be ordered to pay support and attorney fees and costs. If you cannot pay the filing fee, ask the clerk for a fee waiver form. If you want legal advice, contact a lawyer immediately. You can get information about finding lawyers at the California Courts Online SelfHelp Center. www.courinfo.ca.gov/selfhelp), at the California Legal Services Website (www.lawhelpcalifornia.org), or by contacting your local county bar association.
NOTICE: The restraining orders on page 2 are effective against both spouses or domestic partners until the petition is dismissed, a judgment is entered, or the court makes further orders. These orders are enforceable anywhere in California by any law enforcement officer who has received or seen a copy of them.
NOTE: if a judgment or a support order is entered, the court may order you to pay all or part of the fees and costs that the court waived for yourself or for the other party. If this happens, the party ordered to pay fees shall be given notice and an opportunity to request a hearing to set aside the order to pay waived court fees.
WARNING--IMPORTANT INFORMATION WARNING: California law provides that, for purposes of division of property upon dissolution of a marriage or domestic partnership or upon legal separation, property acquired by the parties during marriage or domestic partnership in joint form is presumed to be community property. If either party to this action should die before the jointly held community property is divided, the language in the deed that characterizes how title is held (i.e., joint tenancy, tenants in common, or community property) will be controlling, and not the community property presumption. You should consult your attorney if you want the community property presumption to be written into the recorded title to the property. STANDARD FAMILY LAW RESTRAINING ORDERS
Starting immediately, you and your spouse or domestic partner are restrained from
1. Removing the minor child or children of the parties, if any, from the state without the prior written consent of the other party or an order of the court; 2. Cashing, borrowing against, canceling, transferring, disposing of, or changing the beneficiaries of any insurance or other coverage, including life, health, automobile, and disability, held for the benefit of the parties and their minor child or children; 3. Transferring, encumbering, hypothecating, concealing, or in any way disposing of any property, real or personal, whether community, quasi-community, or separate, without the written consent of the other party or an order of the court, except in the usual course of business or for the necessities of life; and 4. Creating a nonprobate transfer or modifying a nonprobate transfer in a manner that affects the disposition of property subject to the transfer, without the written consent of the other party or an order of the court. Before revocation of a nonprobate transfer can take effect or a right of survivorship to property can be eliminated, notice of the change must be filed and served on the other party.
You musty notify each other of any proposed extraordinary expenditures at least five business days prior to incurring these extraordinary expenditures and account to the court for all extraordinary expenditures made after these restraining orders are effective. However, you may use community property, quasi-community property, or your own separate property to pay an attorney to help you or to pay court costs.

The Doctor is In! SIVE and many doctors felt these first prototypes were not as accurate at the impression materials were.
An Impression You Won't Choke On!
In 1984 the first "digital" impression was introduced into the world of dentistry. This meant that instead of having to fill a patients mouth with impression materials, digital images could be taken with a miniature camera and once stitched together, could be used to fabricate a model on which a crown or bridge could be made. This was a real advantage because the patient wouldn't be drooling and/or choking on the impression material waiting for it to set up, a process normally taking 35 minutes! On the other hand, the scanners at the time were VERY EXPEN-
Fast Forward to today: Along with the advances in computer technology, computer imaging has progressed by leaps and bounds. Along with this, the number of competitive dental imaging companies has exploded. Now, instead of taking images of just one tooth, we can scan full arches. Two methods are now in use and competing with each other. One, takes still images and "stitches" together these images into a data base that can be transmitted over the internet to the lab for model fabrication to make a crown, bridge or denture. The other method uses video capturing and essentially does the same thing with regards to stitching and transmitting that data to the lab. Both systems, whether it be a series of still pictures or a video capture of the image,

produce accurate replicas of your mouth and from the models produced, can allow the laboratory to fabricate beautiful restorations. Past systems required fairly large units, called cart systems, that represented look a likes to R2D2 when used in the dental office, and required special software programs (closed systems) specific to their particular manufacturer in order to communicate that information to the lab (i.e. proprietary software). If your lab didn't have the right software, you were out of luck! However, now most newer systems are "open" and all labs can take them. In addition, the newest systems have traded the old mobile units (sorry R2D2!) for USB connections that can be used
on any computer!
So, the next time you're in your dentist's office you might be surprised if you need a crown, bridge or even a denture (coming soon!). The "early adoption" phase of digital impressions is moving into the "becoming widely accepted" phase.
With more manufacturers entering the market and more competitive pricing as well as wider acceptance and use, you may be pleasantly surprised to find your dentist "scanning" your mouth without the old impression materials and enjoying a much more comfortable experience! Looks like 2015 will be a great year to see your dentist after all!
