Amazing stories of human beings driven by love and courage and eventual triumph abound everywhere. There is no shortage of such documented cases. But what about some of the most incredible true moments of people overcoming remarkable circumstances which remain hugely unknown to the general public and, therefore, uncelebrated by the mainstream media? Let us glimpse at some of these true slices of life, and how love and courage led to great moments of triumph.
On the evening of November 16, 1959, the world premiere of the Broadway musical, The Sound of Music, made its debut. It is well known that The Sound of Music became one of the most beloved and popular musicals to ever hit the Great White Way, amassing 1,443 total performances and capturing the hearts of theater-goers and critics, alike. What is not well known, are the hidden elements which took place backstage, behind the footlights, and unknown to the world at large. Unlike the musical production itself, the mysterious unraveling of events hidden behind the curtain were the stuff of real human drama, and not of the world of make-believe. What occurred stunned many ‘insiders’ who witnessed it.
It involved The Sound of Music’s principal star, famed actress, Mary Martin, who dazzled her audience of adoring fans each night. It is no secret that Mary Martin became the favorite of Richard Rogers, who wrote the music, as well as Oscar Hammerstein II, who wrote those immortal lyrics. Mary Martin was their unabashed favorite to personify their life’s productions, not only in Sound of Music, but she was also Rogers and Hammerstein’s pride of joy, especially when Martin won the highest accolade possible for any Broadway musical play, the Tony Award, for Best Actress for their South Pacific musical in 1949. That Mary Martin was a gifted genius on stage was a well-known fact; she had a photographic memory, what medical experts refer to in textbook parlance as an ‘eidetic memory.” Subsequently, her memorized lines for her stage performances were flawless to the nth degree. Mary Martin’s performance so mesmerized critics and audiences, alike, that she received standing ovations each and every night. But, something mysterious crept in, like a dark shadow from the stage wings. It wasn’t noticeable at first, but, ever so slowly, something took hold of Mary Martin which, ironi-

cally, she, herself, was unaware. Somehow, the onslaught of the years dulled her performances, and they became routine and no longer magical to see. Something inexplicably died within her. Critics turned on her, and audiences ceased in their adoration. Not knowing at the time what had happened to herself, Mary Martin took time to visit her dear friend, the noted lyricist, Oscar Hammerstein II, who lay dying of cancer in the hospital. Comforting the great Hammerstein, he noted her sadness and asked what was wrong. Martin explained. Then she asked the great one, “What has happened to me? What has gone wrong?” Hammerstein, it is recorded, smiled serenely then said these words to Mary Martin, “Mary, love in your heart isn’t put there to stay. Love isn’t love till you give it away.”
The following night, Mary Martin went through her paces on stage, but this time, the ending was far, far different. When she had finished, there was not a dry eye in the house; the audience stood as one in a long standing ovation!
The newspaper critics all stood erect, as well!
Rushing to the theatre wings, Mary nearly collapsed, so overwhelmed in sheer joy and excitement! Stagehands, still hearing the deafening ovation from the audience, rushed to Mary Martin’s side congratulating her with excitement! Then, they asked the great question: “Mary, what happened out there, onstage, tonight?” Martin turned silent, then, with tears rolling down her face, looked at the quizzical faces about her and answered: “Tonight . . . I gave my love away!” Oscar Hammerstein II, died shortly after. But not before he heard of Mary’s recaptured love and triumph! And not before Mary Martin, his favorite actress, won the Tony Award for her performance in Sound of Music, on April 24, 1960. But four months later, Oscar Hammerstein II, America’s most influential lyricist, died. How truly remarkable was Mary Martin’s stage transformation back then? Esteemed and influential Broadway critic,
Richard Watts, Jr., of The New York Post was a most seasoned critic reputed to be strict and never given to exaggeration. The powerful critic studied Mary Martin’s performance and he printed these very words in his newspaper column: “Nothing I have ever seen her do prepared me for the loveliness, humor, gift for joyous characterization and sheer lovableness of her performance!” Even though Mary Martin achieved greater fame in her subsequent role as Peter Pan, there was never anything like that night, back in 1959, as Maria von Trapp. There may never be a more magical moment such as that, again. Remarkably, as life often has it, very few people knew of the behind-the-scenes drama which changed her life forever.
From that time onward, until her death on December 1, 1913, at the age of 76, Mary Martin always carried with her, words stitched on her pillow. Words given to her by her mentor, Oscar Hammerstein II. The words on

her pillow, in their entirety, read: “A bell is not a bell till you ring it. A song is not a song till you sing it. And love in your heart isn’t put there to stay. Love is not love till you give it away.”
STORY TWO. Glenn was only seven years old when he almost died. His 13-year-old brother, Floyd, did. It was a freak accident, yet an unforgiving one. The year was 1916. What happened was avoidable. The two brothers had arrived early to school as they were expected to. Their chore was to start a warm fire before the arrival of their teacher and classmates. They would soak the firewood with kerosene as they always did, then light the pot-bellied stove. However, this day was different. Tragically different. The kerosene container was accidentally filled with combustible gasoline! The concussion of the explosion was so fierce that it blew both boys to the ground, setting them on fire at the same time! Through the shock and unspeakable horror, older brother, Floyd, died at the hospital, and the doctors gave Glenn the same prognosis. The entire lower portion of his body was burned, the flesh on his knees and shins were gone, as well as all the toes of his left foot! His parents were devastated. The doctors recommended amputating both legs. Glenn’s mother refused. Not expected to survive, he somehow did. The young boy’s lower-half of his body was dead; his limp legs were lifeless appendages that hung, void of

any movement. He may have lived, but the doctors guaranteed he would never, ever walk. How could he? His legs were shriveled, and lifeless; the legs of a pollywog seemed more robust. Confined to a wheelchair, and carried to his bed, young Glenn reached the point of no return. Then, one day it happened. It had to happen. His mother was the first to see it. The recorded date was early summer, 1919. From the farm house kitchen window, Glenn’s mom gasped at what she saw. An accident, she first thought. Then, reality set in. In total shock, she saw her little Glenn, face-down, on the grass, out of the wheelchair which had imprisoned him. That little boy, so young in years, grabbed the grass with his two tiny, extended hands and, inch by inch, pulled himself on his stomach, across the lawn, dragging his useless legs behind him. Running outside her Kansas farm house, she stopped suddenly, and watched her son with astonishment. Slowly, little Glenn reached the picket fence and with his hands and arms, somehow, pulled himself upward, till he leaned entirely on the fence! The illusion of standing on his own, was intoxicating! Every day since, nine-year-old Glenn practiced leaning on the kitchen table, developing his coordination and endurance. Glenn’s father and mother were astonished at their young child’s fortitude. At age 10, Glenn had learned to stand, then walk with assistance, and then walk slowly by himself, teetering a bit, along the way! Eventually, he learned to run a bit, if you wish to call it

that. Some said it more resembled hopping fast rather than really running. The local newspaper in his hometown of Elkhart, Kansas, reported that people from all around would come visit just to witness little Glenn running the way he did! “It hurt like thunder to walk, but it didn’t hurt at all when I ran!” he once remarked. And so the little Kansas farm boy ran everywhere! He ran around the farm, he ran to school, to the market place, all around his rural community, well, let’s just say he ran for just the pure joy of running. “I didn’t move 10 feet without breaking into a run,” he once said. And that about says it all.
Years had passed and the enormity of the story grew. His story first caught national headlines when Glenn was a senior at Elkhart High School, in Kansas. You see, by then, that farm boy, Glenn Cunningham, went and done the improbable by winning the mile track titles in the Kansas Relays, which took place at the state outdoor National Interscholastic Meet, whereupon he set a new world’s prep record of 4:24.7 for the mile run! That boy, Glenn, was still running and setting new world track records, while his doctor -- who once wanted to amputate both his legs and had given him up for dead -- was reading about him in the papers! Glenn Cunningham now stood taller than ever before and had earned three nicknames from the press: “The Kansas Flyer,” the “Elkhart Express,” and foremost, “The Iron Horse of Kansas.” He was now wildly famous! The world had never seen anything

like him, before or since. He dominated the mile in the 1930s. So much so, that he won the Sullivan Award in 1933 as the nation’s top amateur athlete. He realized a boyhood dream when he competed in the 1932 Summer Olympics in Los Angeles. His leg problems from his crippled years as a youth still acted up, on occasion, so he finished a respectable 4th place, nearly missing a bronze medal against world competition. He tried again at the 1936 Summer Olympics in Berlin, Germany. Because of lingering circulation problems in his legs (effects from the schoolhouse fire in 1916), Cunningham did an intense and lengthy regimen of warming-up exercises that included various types of stretching. It was an improvement – this time he took 2nd place, winning a silver medal for the United States. Against world-class runners who were at their peak physical condition, Glenn Cunningham, was nothing short of spectacular! On those frail legs, “The Iron Horse of Kansas,” continued to stun the world of sports. In February of 1934, he set a new world mark for the mile when he ran it in 4:06.8, which stood, unmolested, for three years (until 1937). In 1936 he set a new world’s record in the 800 meters. And in 1938, he ran the world’s fastest indoor mile in 4:04.4. Just think, that was the fastest any human being had ever travelled, on foot, up to that time.

Even the Europeans were eager to see this “Wonder Boy” who seemed to defy the laws of gravity. They had already seen him compete on three journeys abroad, but now they demanded still another glimpse of this miracle farm boy from rural America, now considered the world’s greatest miler. He was also considered one of the world’s top middle-distance runners by top sports writers on both sides of the Atlantic. And for good reason. In 1933 he was perfect – sweeping the 800 and 1500 meter runs at the AAU nationals, touring Europe, and completing his entire season of 20 consecutive races, all undefeated! That he had that homespun, midAmerican charm never hurt a bit, either. He was genuinely likable. He had the complete package: he was fast, world-renowned, and the best example of what America had to offer. His popularity seemed to have no bounds. In 1936, while on the ship sailing for the Berlin Summer Olympics, he was voted “The Most Popular Athlete” by his fellow Olympians. No easy accomplishment among fiercely competitive, Olympic-sized egos!
Glenn’s parents, Henry and Rosa Cunningham, had reared him proper. Glenn never let grass grow under his feet. All the time he was getting ink from the world’s press for his running exploits, he was also busy earning an education. That boy was something else. He earned his B.A. degree from the University of Kansas, in 1933. His M.A. degree from the University of Iowa, class of 1936. And the frosting on the cake: he earned his coveted Ph.D degree from New York City University. His fields of study were in biology, health, and physical education. The year he became Dr. Glenn Cunningham, was 1940. His last season of competition was 1940. Dr. Glenn Cunningham taught physical fitness education classes at Cornell College, in Mount Vernon, Iowa,

from 1940 to 1944. After serving in the Navy during World War II, the great athlete and his wife, Ruth, settled down on an 840-acre ranch northeast of Burns, Kansas. They took in underprivileged children. Glenn never forgot about his youth and the poverty that came with it. His dad was a water-well driller and work was often scarce, so the family moved a lot, scratching out an existence. Being poor was a painful memory, and Glenn remembers how his parents struggled hard to keep them all fed. It hurt being poor. Glenn remembered the nights there was hardly food on the table to keep them all fed, and how his baby brother, Raymond, and older sibling, Floyd, would sometimes head for bed, stomach growling from hunger. Sleep was the only thing that took the hunger away, until they woke the next morning. Glenn swore to himself that he would never let that happen to any other child in their growingup-years. So he chased after another dream, this time establishing the Glenn Cunningham Youth Ranch, from which he helped over 10,000 poor and orphaned kids over a span of thirty years! But it wasn’t enough for the mighty athlete. Glenn quickly engaged in a foot race of a different kind, this time he raced to quickly establish a second Youth Ranch for the poor, abused, often abandoned children, this time in Menifee, Arkansas! The memories of his own youth still haunted him: his dirt-poor beginnings, the evenings his mom and dad wept because they struggled to put food on the table. He learned from it. By the time he was six, he was already working and doing the chores. He took care of his baby brother, Raymond, when the time required. That little boy, Glenn, learned to be shrewd with a penny. His frugality would serve him well in his adult years, and through history’s worst economic crisis, The Great Depression. He invested wisely, and he obtained a formal education that saw him become a university professor. For the best of reasons, Glenn was always in a foot race, chasing

down one dream after another. But all foot races have to have a finish line, and all have to come to an end. As happens in all of life, he was getting old, and time was now nipping at his heels. Finally, on March 10, 1988, the world’s newspapers had very solemn news to report: Glenn Verniss Cunningham, whom many considered the greatest American miler of all-time, was now dead at age 78. It was a most exhilarating foot race Glenn Cunningham ran throughout his lifetime. It was a most unlikely journey that took him from his little farm, to the grandest stadiums in the world. Where record Olympic crowds welcomed him with deafening ovations, as if welcoming a king or emperor! His reputation preceded him, in Europe. When he traveled to Europe, in June of 1933, to compete in international track events after successfully defending his NCAA championship crown, the Europeans turned out in eager crowds just to witness him in action! Who could have imagined that such a magical life awaited him? This Kansas boy, who lived a most terrifying childhood, and whose small legs were almost taken from him by amputation, grew up to be an undisputed giant
in the world of sports. Ironic, that his severely deformed legs, his right leg two-inches shorter than his left, would somehow evolve into a dynamic running machine that would allow this small child to someday send world records to damnation, and run – unfettered – into the record books, as well into the hearts of countless millions around the globe. Glenn Verniss Cunningham, talks of his life’s journey in his autobiography, “American Miler: The Life and Times of Glenn Cunningham.” It is a true account of human endeavor so unbelievable that his book could easily, by mistake, be placed in the fiction section of a library. Seven times, he set world indoor records for the 1500 meters and the mile! And he didn’t shave world records by the fractions -he demolished them! In 1938, competing at Dartmouth College, he exploded the world indoor world record for the mile by a full two seconds! And when his legs didn’t act up, he seemed to fly rather than run. When he met Princeton University’s incredible

On January 6, the City of Carlsbad Police Department arrested 43-year-old Louie Patrick Duran, Jr. of Carlsbad for Attempt Carjack, Assault with a Deadly Weapon, Child Endangerment and Commit Felony While on Bail. The attempted carjacking occurred on December 29, 2015, and was reported to the Police Department at 6:32 p.m. Since December 29, the Police Department has been actively investigating the incident in an effort to bring the event to today’s conclusions. On December 29, the Police Department received a call from a resident in the 1300 block of Laurel Tree Lane (located between Aviara Parkway and Private Road) that wanted to report an attempted auto theft.
It was reported that the female victim had placed her child in her car and entered her vehicle as well. The suspect, wearing a motorcycle helmet, approached the car and stuck a Machete type knife into the doorway of the vehicle to prevent the vehicle door from closing. The suspect then asked for the vehicle keys. The victim screamed and grabbed at the Machete causing the suspect to leave on foot in an eastbound direction. The victim sustained cuts on both

Officers arriving on scene asked for the assistance of the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department helicopter, ASTREA, while they created a perimeter around the crime scene. Officers also used a K9 to assist with the search into the brush areas.
At 7:35 p.m., officer canceled the search of the area but continued the investigation to locate the suspect. The investigation led detectives to the suspect’s residence in the 1300 block of Laurel Tree Lane. After a search of the residence yielded the machete and helmet thought to be worn during the incident, Duran was taken into custody. Duran will be booked into the Vista Detention Facility.

While rummaging through the boat's provisions, Ole stumbled across an old lamp. He rubbed the lamp vigorously and suddenly, a genie came forth. This Genie, however, stated that he could only deliver one wish, not the standard three. Without thinking, or consulting Sven, Ole immediately blurted out, 'turn the entire lake into Schmidt beer'. The genie clapped his hands with a deafening sound, and immediately Lake Superior turned into Schmidt beer and just as quickly the genie vanished.
Now only the gentle lapping of beer on the hull broke the stillness as the two men considered their new circumstances. Sven looked disgustedly at Ole whose wish had been granted, and after a long tension-filled moment, Sven said, "Nice going Ole! Now ve gonna have

city council. I thought that if we had a complaint, the City Council would consider that when Cox renewed its license/contract. When I called the city, I was put in touch with Sarah Mac Donald who informed me that the state had passed a law that Cox and others were no longer responsible/ answerable to local city councils. Thus they have a monopoly without being answerable to anyone! Sound familiar? Ms. Mac Donald told me that if I would e mail her my letter, she would forward it to someone in the corporate office. It looked hopeful. On July 21st, she forwarded my letter to “CA CxE Executive Escalations (CCI-California)”
Toward the end of July, I received an E mail from Sylvia Dunbar, Office of the Regional Manager, at Cox who having read only the first paragraph of my letter, responded to the first item and ignored the rest. When I e-mailed and called, to tell her so, my messages remained unanswered – ignored by both at the City of San Marcos and at Cox. I guess that’s what you get in modern day business! AT&T is just as bad. I received a letter from them that my
internet price would be fixed for 1 year. Two months later, the price went up. When I called them, they said they would look into it. Nothing. How many times do you have to call? I got tired of calling and fighting. That’s what they wanted- for me to give up and not bother them!. Time Warner’s ads on TV appear to be less expensive and more customer oriented. How can I switch to Time Warner and dump Cox and AT&T? /s/Jack Horner San Marcos, CA.
Editor’s Note: I have a hunch if you simply call Time-Warner they will effect a transfer over to their system very quickly.
I had similar frustrating problems with Cox Cable last week regarding transfer of a phone line from one address to another. A simple task that took three separate Cox service representatives, who seemed to be contradicting one another, to finally get resolved after hours of talking on the phone. I was not impressed with how they handled the problem, even though it eventually got solved.

and experts the City claims the cost runs between $20,000 and $50,000. We have never seen documentation of these figures. There also have been no rent reviews since 2010, therefore no cost. We understand the Facilitator has racked up between $75,000 and $100,00 in costs to the City trying to initiate an accord. Wanting to improve upon the RSO is a commendable objective, however, the process has been flawed from day one. After about a year and a half of conferences or task force meetings, they abruptly stopped. None of the recommendations by the Homeowner representatives were incorporated in the draft lease presented to the El Dorado M/H Park. An Accord would have been an agreement with all the Parks in the City that rent spaces. Without any notice, the objective changed to a "divide and conquer" approach. The first Park under siege, El Dorado Park is located on Capalina Road near Rancho Santa Fe. It is a tiny park with only 94 spaces, with about 32 of the homes owned by the Park Owner and rented out at whatever rate he desired. It is smack dab in the middle of an industrial area and under a five star ranking system, would probably rate only one star.

Further on south down Rancho Santa Fe Road there are two larger parks that would possibly rate a four star rating, since they have more amenities, trees and are better maintained. It stands to reason that the $390 monthly space rents at El Dorado are where they belong compared to the $450 to $700 rents in these nicer parks. The Lease presentations at El Dorado were one sided, coercive and deceitful.
Even if they weren't, there was no room for negotiation. It was a take it or just lose your RSO protection. What the Homeowners had under the RSO was expectations of an annual increase approximately relating to the CPI, with no rent increase upon the sale of their home, and with no additional increase for capital replacements of the Park Owners property. This new lease calls for annual Rent increases based upon the CPI, HOWEVER, increase of rents to new buyers or purchasers of their home would be facing increases of a minimum the first year of $50, but with a complicated formula, would increase to well over a hundred dollars in a year or two. You might ask, what does it matter what their buyer has to pay? Well, as the rent goes up, their

equity goes down. One hundred dollars more in rent can take $10,000 out of the value of their house. Each progressive year will steal more and more equity.
The additional rent or pass through rent is essentially a racket where the Park Owners want the Homeowners to replace roads, clubhouse roofs, replace old swimming pools, etc., etc. This is the owned property of the Investor or Park Owner, it is an integral part of his/her business and in no way is the responsibility of the mobile home owner. This flies in the face of the MRL (Mobilehome Residency Law), but violations of those laws have gone on for years, since the only way for them to be enforced is through a lawsuit filed by people who cannot afford a lawyer. You might ask why are mobile home owners who live in other parks protesting and fighting this onerous and oppressive long term lease in this small park? While we homeowners are scattered about in eleven different parks, we see ourselves as a community, and we need to defend and fight for each other, because we can be the next ones being thrown under the bus. In past years, the City stepped up to defend us, but it now

When NASA was preparing for the Apollo Project, it took their astronauts to a Navajo reservation in Arizona for training.
Historically Speaking by Tom Morrow
One day, a Navajo elder and his son came across the space crew walking among the rocks. The elder, who spoke only Navajo, asked a question. His son translated for the NASA people:
"What are these guys in the big suits doing?" One of the astronauts said that they were practicing for a trip to the moon.
When his son relayed this comment the Navajo elder got all excited and asked if it would be possible to give to the astronauts a message to deliver to the moon. Recognizing a promotional opportunity when he saw one, a NASA official accompanying the astronauts said,
"Why certainly!" He then told an underling to get a tape recorder. The Navajo elder's comments into the microphone were brief. The NASA official asked the son if he would translate what his father had said. The son listened to the recording and laughed uproariously but refused to translate. So the NASA people took the tape to a nearby Navajo village and played it for other members of the tribe. They too laughed long and loudly, but refused to translate the elder's message to the moon.
An official government translator was summoned. After he finally stopped laughing, the translator relayed the message: "WATCH OUT FOR THESE ASSES. THEY HAVE COME TO STEAL YOUR LAND." YOU A PILOT?
You think you have lived to be 80 plus and know who you are, then along comes someone and blows it all to hell! An old Marine Pilot sat down at the Starbucks, still wearing his old USMC flight jacket and ordered a cup of coffee.

Samuel "Sam" Houston was an extraordinary American politician and soldier, best known for his role in bringing Texas into the United States as a state. His victory at the Battle of San Jacinto secured the independence of Texas from Mexico. Houston was the only American to be elected governor of two different states; he also was the only governor within a future Confederate state to oppose secession and to refuse an oath of allegiance to the Confederacy, a decision that led to his removal from office by the Texas secession convention. Houston was born March 2, 1793 at Timber Ridge Plantation in Rockbridge

When I watch TV, I think about naked women. It seems everything makes me think of naked women.' The two sat sipping in silence.
A little while later, a young man sat down on the other side of the old pilot and asked: "Are you a real pilot?"
He replied, 'I always thought I was, but I just found out I'm a lesbian.' ••••• Apparently, there's a new Wii game that can help the elderly with bladder control. I believe it's called the Wii Wii. The Parable of the Jewish Samurai

County, Virginia. After moving to Tennessee, he spent time with the Cherokee Nation (into which he later was adopted as a citizen and married a Cherokee woman). He served in the U.S. military during the War of 1812, and in 1827, was elected Governor of Tennessee. In 1829, Houston resigned as Tennessee governor and moved to Arkansas Territory. Shortly afterward an altercation with a U.S. Congressman, Houston relocated to Texas, then a Mexican state, and became a leader of the Texas Revolution. After the war, Houston became a key figure in Texas and was elected as the first and third President of the Republic of Texas. He supported annexation by the United States and after annexation in 1845, he became a U.S. Senator and finally a governor of Texas in 1859, whereby becoming the only person to have been the governor of two different U.S. states through popular election, as well as the only state governor to have been a head of foreign state (in the Texas Republic).

Also, a U.S. Army base (Fort Sam Houston), a national forest, a historical park, a university, and a prominent roadside statue outside of Huntsville, Texas, his adopted hometown. Houston died July 26, 1863, in Huntsville. As for his politics, Houston was all over the place. He was a member of the “Know Nothing” party, as well as a Democrat, and ended up being an Independent, which perfectly described his actions and personality.

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.

Escondido, CA—In a 2002 issue of Neurosurgical Focus, a peerreviewed article was published by a Dr. Michael D.

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, herniated 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.

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 mechanism in the discs which allows the spinal discs to heal and repair. The best part of the treatment is that it uses no drugs, no injections, and no surgery. Plus it’s painless and many patients relax and fall asleep while undergoing 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
Dr. Stephen Heilman, DC
Dr. Heilman will be offering this spinal disc severity examination from now until Thursday, January 21, 2016.

‘Man About Town’ Cont. from Page 4 I LOVE Calamari.
About five/six years ago my youngest son, Ken, who is a tremendously successful fisherman, caught a humungous amount of squid. He told me he had saved me some and put them in an ice chest for me.
It happened I needed a pickup truck so we exchanged cars; I drove his pickup truck, he drove our (then) Cadillac - evelyn's favorite car. Somehow, a quick stop I suppose, the ice chest turned over and we had squid and squid juice all over the back seat and floor of the
Smarter than a 5th grader?
My son is in 5th grade. He is a thoughtful young man who always does his homework – except today. On a cold and rainy Thursday, my husband took him to Barnes & Noble after school to buy a new book. They returned to the car to find a window smashed and some items stolen from inside the car – a jacket, a trumpet and a backpack. Caddy.
I got the Caddy back, Kenny got his pickup back . . . and we were stuck with a smelly car. It took three or four months before we finally got the smell out; this included hiring a profession company to come out and clean the car (they were unsuccessful), evelyn spraying and wiping down the car multiple times . . . eventually, a combination of elbow grease and cleaning agents managed to get the car clean. The memory, however, lingers on. I am no longer as big a fan of Calimari as I once was. Two or
In the big scheme of things, these are minor losses and a slight inconvenience. Eli’s jacket was almost too small for him anyway. Eli’s trumpet has struggled to make beautiful music and we can only imagine it was broken or defective to begin with (laugh with me). Eli’s backpack was the biggest loss since it contained his favorite lunch bag and his homework packet for the whole week. Rather than celebrate a
legitimate excuse for the loss of homework, my son worried about disappointing his teacher by not turning in his packet. I love his work ethic and responsibility and his teacher does too.

According to witnesses and physical evidence at the scene, it appears the vehicle was traveling south on Auto Parkway and was making a left turn to Hale Avenue. The vehicle left the roadway and drove onto the south sidewalk. The vehicle struck a steel guide wire causing it to overturn. The driver did not appear to be wearing her seatbelt.

Preparing for Winter Rains
Given the strong El Niño conditions present in the Pacific Ocean, this New Year the risk for these serious impacts has increased. The City has been busy behind the scenes preparing for the winter storm season, including removing debris from storm drains and strengthening road and park infrastructure before the expected rain hits. Keeping a few sandbags ready this winter may help ward off water if it approaches your home. Free empty sand bags are available at
the Public Works facility during normal business hours. Residents can purchase fill materials at local home centers and building supply stores. Even though El Nino is always a question mark because of other climate variables, the City of Vista is preparing - just in case it hits hard this winter. Have questions about storm preparations in Vista? Call the Public Works Department at 760.639.6176 or check online at CityofVista.com for more local and regional information.

Last week we made our annual pilgrimage to Las Vegas for the CES (Consumer Electronics Show). For the past six years we’ve been invited as members of the “working Press” to attend the show and all the pre-show “press events.” This show is the largest “technology” exhibition in the World with 4000 exhibits on 2.2 million square feet of convention floor and 175,000 attendees (including 50,000 from 153 foreign countries). CES is not open to the public. Only exhibitors, The Press and other “industry affiliates” are permitted access to the show. 82 of Fortune magazine’s top 100 companies attend and the aisles and press conferences are awash with Fortune 500 CEOs and tag-along celebrities from sports, movies and television. There are thousands of tours, demo’s, press conferences and keynote events throughout the

Optimist Club of Carlsbad Hosted Boy Scout at Meeting – Keith Pereira, Eagle Scout Candidate, was the guest speaker again at a recent meeting of the Optimist Club of Carlsbad “The Achievers”. Keith, from Boy Scout Troop 745, came back to share the results of his plan to turn a landmark Oak tree, that was originally cut down to make way for Sage Creek High School, into a beautiful two-tier book display table for the high school’s library. He explained in detail the process he implemented, from using three different types of sanders to the wipe-on satin polyurethane for the finish. Not only was Keith very organized in his approach, but it definitely showed in the near-flawless production process, a true demonstration of good communication and leadership from Keith. Keith’s parents, Trevor and Joan, also attended the meeting in support of his presentation. “The Achievers” Optimist Club generally meets on Saturday, from 9-10am, at the El Camino Country Club, Board Room, 3202 Vista Way, Oceanside.

The CES is really like a gigantic shopping mall and just like a shopping mall, no one goes to CES with the intention of visiting all the “stores.” With the 4000 exhibits in 26 venues scattered among several sites it would be impossible to visit even a significant fraction of the exhibits in the 4 day show. But no one wants to anyway. Attendees are there on business and interested in only the exhibits important to their business. Buyers from electronic product retailers (Best Buy, WalMart, Amazon, Apple, Target, Costco, Gamestop, Newegg etc.) meet with sales executives on the exhibit floor and in convention center conference rooms to plan their purchases for the year.

Preliminary investigation indicates the Dodge was traveling west on Country Club Lane at a high rate of speed. The vehicle drifted off the roadway and impacted a tree in the center median. The 21 year old driver died at the scene. There were no passengers in the vehicle. The driver’s name is not being released at this time until next of kin have been notified.
It is unknown at this time if alcohol was a factor in the collision although speed played a major role.

phone when you eat too fast.
Smart phone applications are endless. Your smart phone monitors your vital signs, secures your home, dispenses your medicine and turns off the bathtub. Imagine you’re at a luau in Honolulu when your “smart phone” tells you there’s an intruder in your home. You watch the creep paw through your wife’s jewelry box. There’s no time to call 911. You activate the infrared sensor on the wall mounted AK47 and give the “fire” command. As the smoke clears you see that your possessions are safe. After you finish eating you can call 911 on your “smart phone”. Isn’t technology wonderful?
Superior Court, alleging the association failed to properly supervise Kaiser, who she said had discriminated against her because of her gender and “harassed and bullied” and micromanaged her. Her attorney, Christopher Hayes, confirmed that the case had settled late last fall. The association, the Vista Village Business Association, is tasked with running events and promotions in the city’s downtown area, using fees collected from area businesses.
Though the settlement was with the VVBA, the suit against Kaiser was also dismissed and he has agreed not to countersue, said attorney Golnar Fozi, who represented both Kaiser and the business association. The attorney also said that neither Kaiser nor the organization admitted any wrongdoing. Fozi said the decision to settle was “just to buy peace for VVBA.” Protracted proceedings would have been more costly. Insurance money will cover the settlement, she said. Kaiser said the suit was without merit. “There wasn’t a case there,” he said. Last month, Kaiser stepped down as board president, although he will remain a board member. His term had ended in June, but he stayed in the post because no one had stepped forward for the volunteer position.

torrential rains and floods that nearly destroyed Valley Center and other parts of North County, the Valley Center History Museum has mounted a major exhibition titled "The Rainmaker" after the local man who was credited and later blamed for the destructive storms. Multiple photos and memorabilia document the rains which fell during most of January 1916. In Valley Center alone, an avalanche of water isolated the community for two months, forcing supplies and food to be shipped by barge from Oceanside. Charles Hatfield, who came to be known as the rainmaker, had a home and weather station in Valley Center at Woods Valley and Valley Center roads from where he concocted a brew of 23 chemicals which vaporized into the air after being released from a cauldron set atop a 20-foot tower. He employed similar techniques at other sites. He died in January 1958, taking his secret formula to the grave. The History Museum at 29200 Cole Grade Road is open Tuesday through Saturday from 12noon to 4pm. Admission is free. For more information, visit vchistory.org or call 760.749.2993. The exhibit will remain throughout 2016. Photo: Charles Hatfield, the rainmaker
