A Symbol of America, The Wild Horse, Is Being Slaughtered for Pet Food and Human Consumption. Can Environmentalists, Ranchers, Mustang Lovers and The Government Work Together to Stop This Tragedy?
The BLM, the Symbol of America Wild Horses - Cattle and Animal Rights Organization Fight Over Your Public Land By Pete Peterson

sheepdog, buzzed over the rugged landscape, careening left and right, doubling back to scare strays from deep ravines, darting into small canyons to extract every head of mustangs, driving its prey relentlessly over the eastern Nevada terrain. The band of frightened horses run to flee airborne attacker, following the ‘Judas horse’ – a domestic horse - that leads its wild cousins toward a metal corridor that dead ends in a manmade corral. Mares, young colts, even foals hardly old enough to walk, run at a
crazed pace, their hides sweat stained, their breath labored, their long strides carrying them across the rock-strewn landscape. A black stallion shies, stumbles, rights itself and keeps running, hobbled now, its hoof leaving blood among the rocks and sage brush. The Judas horse swings left. The herd follows and over the next four hours, some 117 wild horses are herded into the pen, their days of roaming the western lands ended forever. On this day, the black stallion and two other mustangs are euthanized

as result of injuries that occurred during the stampede, but the majority of these beasts are destined to spend the rest of their lives – often up to thirty years – as wards of the Bureau of Land Management. Why is this happening, you ask? The helicopter chase is part of the three-week annual horse round up, the dreaded ‘gathering’ where the symbol of America – the wild mustang - is driven from its range to temporary pens. Once captured, these magnificent animals are trucked to more permanent holding

pens where some will be sold (adopted) for the sum of $1.00. Others, the aged, the halt and the lame, will be sold to dog and pet food processors; most will be kept in holding pens where the BLM, will tend them the rest of their lives. Is This Necessary?
A good question that has no easy answer. And as much as we’d like to put black hats on some of those involved, and white hats on others, that isn’t so easy either. Broken down the argument goes like this: Ranchers view the mustangs as feral pests that wreak havoc on the ecosystems - particularly the water supply and grasses needed for their cattle - interfere in ranching procedures, eat the hay and rock salt the cattlemen put out for their herds and interfere with the operation of a nearby gold mine, causing needless carnage on area roads – some 18 horse-vehicle deaths in 2018. The cattlemen want to eliminate or at least drastically reduce the number of mustangs running free on government land. On the other hand, horse advocates contend that the present BLM policies, particularly the gatherings, are cruel, antiquated actions that injure or maim the horses, traumatizing them for life. This side cites statistics that show cattle cause much more damage to the environment

than do the horses; they want the mustangs protected and their sale to food processors stopped forever, immediately. Both sides agree the present situation is untenable, that something must be done to solve this situation and end the standoff between the horses and cattle that has festered for years. Until recently, neither side was willing to concede one little bitty tiny bit with the other side in order to move beyond the impasse. Both sides readily agree there are at least 70,000 wild horses foraging on Western rangelands that can supposedly support only 27,000 animals. This is the heart of the issue. At the present, the Bureau of Land Management has 50,000 mustangs and burros in holding pens; much of their annual budget goes to the feeding and care of these animals. This leads to this question: What policy can the BLM implement that ecologists, ranchers, horse advocates, animal rights organizations, will support to solve this longstanding problem? No Simple Answers
Ben Masters, writing for National Geographic has some thoughts on this subject. He recounts that in 2009, he and two friends took a break from college and travelled via horse back across the Continental Divide Trail with the ultimate purpose of getting wild horses adopted. This life changing

ride of some 2,000 miles from Santa Fe, New Mexico, through Colorado, Wyoming and Montana to the Canadian border opened his eyes to the mustang problem, educating him on a dilemma he didn’t know existed until then.
A Texas native, Ben was blown away by the sheer size and majesty of the vast public lands of the American West. He writes, “I found it amazing that such a large stretch of land still existed, and now that I’ve researched these public lands extensively, I have an even greater appreciation for the blood, sweat, and tears that enlightened conservationists shed in the fight to have this historic area set aside for future generations to cherish and enjoy. I’m equally as amazed at the plight of the wild horses and burros.” He states, “In 2009 there were nearly 31,500 such animals in government holding facilities and 37,000 in the wild - an area that supposedly had forage enough for only 27,000 horses. Since then, the numbers have grown steadily. My friends and I became dedicated to finding homes for the horses the government had already captured. To publicize our resolve we planned another long ride to promote wild horse adoptions—this time going all the way from Mexico to Canada through the most backcountry route left in the American West. To arouse the public’s awareness, we created a documentary film, Unbranded. Before this, we launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise

When NASA was preparing for the Apollo Project, it took their astronauts to a Navajo reservation in Arizona for training. 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

The trip was simply spectacular and redefined who we were as people.”
Masters continues, “The documentary turned out much better than we could’ve dreamed. We took Unbranded to film festivals across the world, had an international theatrical release. It received more than two dozen awards and is available worldwide on Netflix and has been watched by millions. The idea behind our journey was to promote the adoption of wild horses. Along this line we even auctioned off one of our personal horses to promote the idea. Proceeds from our efforts went to the Mustang Heritage Foundation to fund adoption efforts. “Did we succeed in getting wild horses adopted? Absolutely. Hundreds of people were inspired by our story and adopted horses. We

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.

raised nearly $100,000 in the process. Did we get all the wild horses adopted or find a solution to the plight of the wild mustangs? The answer to these two questions is no. Not even close.”
To show the growth of mustangs and burros, Masters notes that of March 1, 2016, there were 67,000 horses and burros on public lands and 45,000 in government holding pens; computer models show the current population of the wild horses, including foals born in 2016, has increased to approximately 75,000, (an increase of 28.000, or more that the total 27,000 the controversial Appropriate Management Level (AML) the Bureau of Land Management had set as the upper number that could environmentally safely forage the land. This figure incidentally is also one that most in the fray agree to. It defines “the number of horses that would thrive without damaging ecological imbalance to the vegetation, wildlife, and livestock.”
This figure of 75, 000 is roughly three times the number of horses and burros on the range than is recommended. How did this happen? Again, the answer is not easy, but the most common assessment seems to be this - the BLM gathers excess horses and offers them for adoption. But there aren’t enough adopters. (Only 3,007 in 2018,

You do the math. Much of the BLM’s budget goes to feeding those animals presently in holding pens; it does not have the resources to round up and hold enough horses to offset the birth rate, thus, the population in the wild has increased above the Appropriate Management Level. Simple, but devastating.
welfare, politics, and rangeland management. Over the past year, I’ve received death threats. Why? Because after all my studies and research, I’ve come to favor euthanizing unadoptable horses to prevent rangeland degradation. I do this based on my research. I do not represent any paid entity. I’m not a hired gun of the livestock industry or any political organization. The blogs and films I’ve developed were before my appointment to the wildlife advisory board. I’ve also adopted seven mustangs and love them dearly, but I believe the only viable long-range solution is humane euthanasia.”
Masters, newly appointed to the Wild Horse and Burro Advisory Board of the Bureau of Land Management, thinks he has a plan to solve the issue. “Through the creation of Unbranded and its accompanying book, I interviewed some of the most brilliant minds in ecology, wildlife biology, animal
Masters and other authorities feel the real issue is the entrenched financial interests of the livestock industry, exacerbated by a lack of agreement on what constitutes the problem. For example, Jane Dyson of the Humane Society of the
To get a more complete picture of the problem, add in that ecologists, rangeland managers and wildlife conservation organizations ask another tough question: What will happen to the bison, bighorn sheep, mule deer, pronghorn antelope, sage grouse, and other native species that have long inhabited this area? They deserve a chance to get at the goodies too, don’t they? In the minds of ecologists and environmentalists these wild game animals should get precedence over livestock and wild horses.
He is not alone in advocating euthanasia as a solution to reducing the number of mustangs and burros in holding pens, and consequently, free-roaming areas. Other authorities agree with him, including two U.S. House of Representatives subcommittees, and the Trump Administration. Under the Trump plan, the BLM would more fully encourage adoptions. Any surplus animals would be sold to countries that treat horse flesh as a delicacy, primarily France, Germany, South Korea and Poland. Those not sold. Euthanize them.

United States joins Masters in pointing that there is no definition of the problem.
“Let’s start with this,” Dyson says. “What is a ‘wild horse.’ Depending on whom you ask, wild horses are 1) a reintroduced native species indigenous to North America, 2), an invasive pest disrupting ecological functions, or 3), feral livestock that are culturally significant and whose numbers need to be closely manged.
This lack of definition has plagued both sides since the beginning. In the 1950s, Velma Johnston, known as “Wild Horse Annie,” witnessed mustang gatherings and dedicated her life to the protection of the ‘wild ones,’ her definition of the mustang. Annie’s unceasing efforts on behalf of the species culminated in the passage of the Wild Free Roaming Horses and Burro Act, signed into law by President Richard Nixon in 1971. The law states that “Congress finds and declares that wild freeroaming horses and burros are living symbols of the historic and pioneer spirit of the West; that they contribute to the diversity of life forms within the Nation and enrich the lives of the American people; and that these horses and burros are fast disappearing from the American scene.” Masters writes, “The wild horse is the only animal in our nation legal-

The parking structure is closed daily from 2:00 to 4 am. Vista Seeks to Lease AVO Theatere to Developer
The City desires to enter into an Exclusive Negotiation Agreement (ENA) with JCG Development (Developer) to explore a long-term lease that could substantially renovate the site and allow for state-ofthe-art concerts and productions.
The AVO Playhouse is located at 303 Main Street. The historic theater was built in 1948 as a neighborhood movie house. The AVO is a fully-equipped performance venue with a 385 seat auditorium, an elevated stage, and back stage dressing rooms with restrooms. It also features a concession area and restrooms in the lobby. The City bought the theater in 1995 and restored it to accommodate live performances. Over the past few years the AVO has primarily served as a rental venue for local and traveling theatrical and musical productions. The City has been approached by several parties interested in purchasing and/or leasing the AVO Playhouse; ultimately the parties declined to move forward due to a variety of reasons. At this time, JCG Development (JCG) has expressed interest in re-invigorating the AVO Playhouse as a music and live entertainment venue. JCG is a key partner in the new mixeduse project located at 100 Main Street, The Rylan, and they are pursuing additional partnerships and development in Vista.

Well, here we are well into the New Year and I'm just as happy as could be.
The holidays are now behind us and I want to thank that good old soul, Santa. You see, Santa came during the night and, while I was sleeping, gave me a number of things I had wanted, like, forever!
When I awoke Christmas morning I had two lovely ear-rings, the size of silver dollars, firmly embedded in both ears. Santa had to perform surgery, while I was sleeping, and gave me two silver dollar size holes in my ears and then he inserted . . .silver dollars! Real shiny and all. Then, on each arm, he gave me a full series of arm tattoos. Just

Then I opened another box under the Christmas tree and there they were! Just what I had been waiting for . . . for years. A genuine pair of great big, yellow, clown shoes! They must have been at least a foot and a half in length. Boy, will I ever be a big hit at the Chamber of Commerce meeting next Monday!

A periodic lane closure has begun as of Thursday, Jan. 9 for the westbound lane of Discovery Street between Craven Road and Joy Court to allow SDG&E and their contractor to relocate existing electrical utilities. SDG&E will need to close this lane periodically for safety reasons as they begin to move existing electrical poles and string new electrical lines. SDG&E is completing this work in advance of the start of active construction for the City’s San Marcos Creek Project. This work is related to the Creek Project, but is not part of the City’s active construction that will begin with the closure of Bent Avenue in January/February 2020. How Long Will This Last?
The periodic closure along Discovery Street from Craven Road to Joy Court will be in effect until Friday, March 6 to accommodate the utility relocation. It is anticipated that SDG&E will close the lane periodically as needed, to allow for safe and efficient relocation of the utilities and installation of new electrical lines in the project area. Work will take place Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. – 4 p.m.

Mac Hudson and Joe Bauer (real name Rosenthal) were the morning show at KFMB for many years. I joined them during their morning show as I presented the area traffic reports from KFMB Traffic Control.
A fascinating combination, Mac and Joe. Mac was a Mensa guy really high IQ. He'd work New York Times crossword puzzles between records, during commercial breaks. He could speak eloquently on a number of given subjects . . . great sense of humor. Quick witted. But Mac had a troubled history. On one occasion he had taken his

After I left KFMB in the late 1980's I learned that Mac had a long standing addiction to cocaine. KFMB had sent him, at their expense, to several rehab facilities to try and beat the addiction. Never worked. Mac has since passed away.
Joe Bauer (I never did understand why he changed his name from Rosenthal to Bauer) was also a brilliant mind. In my 25 years in radio I never met anyone I admired and loved more than Joe Bauer. He had a lovely family - wife, Cindy, and several daughters. Joe had originally studied for the priesthood - then got into radio. I remember telling him one day, "Joe, I'm not Catholic but I have to say that the Church lost a great priest when you left the seminary." "Well," he said, "thanks, but if I hadn't I wouldn't have met Cindy and had my kids."

Whatever you do puts a larger burden on the broken frame, and it will collapse. The BLM Wild Horse and Burro program has a broken frame, in that it relies on information from the National Academy of Sciences, which has repeatedly been proven false. Build as many walls as you like. Make the walls of expensive material and keep putting these walls on a broken foundation and your house will collapse.” When the 1971 law was passed free-roaming horses and burros were found on 53.8 million acres across the United States; 42.4 million of which were under the Bureau of Land Management’s jurisdiction. Today, wild horses and burros are present on 179 different BLM Herd Management Areas (HMA), covering 31.6 million acres in Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Utah, and Wyoming.
Each HMA is different in size, geography, and type of horse. Some of the herds are of Spanish descent, others are large draft animals, and some are much smaller and known for being difficult to train. Some herds are mainly ‘paints,’ others bays, and some exhibit primitive

The NFL's decision to name Vick as one of the 2020 Pro Bowl Legends Captains, a role that would see him mentor players and coach from the sidelines, was quickly met with criticism. In 2007, Vick served a year and a half in federal prison for his involvement in a dog fighting ring. I sincerely believe this needs to be printed in "The Paper’s" next issue to show the football viewing public the disrespect he (Roger Goodell) has for the paying public. Personally, I have given up watching anything that has to do with the NFL! Respectfully,

Each herd is unique, but all have survived a gauntlet of serious selection criteria, generations of natural selection, of braving extreme heat and cold, and battling for breeding rights. This has resulted in animals that survive on meager rations and are resilient, tough-footed, intelligent, and well-suited to thrive in the West’s harsh conditions. The Bureau of Land Management is caught in a gridlock of lawsuits filed by a variety of interest groups that has hindered the agency’s ability to take action, including administering fertility control on wild horses. So, what options does the agency have? What realistic actions can they take to solve the problem they face? Euthanasia is not the only solution the BLM uses to limit the number of mustangs born.

return is not an option the BLM is currently considering due to protests and adverse feedback. Adoption, Rescues, and Sanctuaries
More than 2,300 horses and 300 burros were adopted in 2015. Half of those adopted out were by the nonprofit Mustang Heritage Foundation through innovative programs such as the Extreme Mustang Makeover and Trainer Incentive Program. Although the BLM annually spends more than $6 million in adoption expenses, they’re competing in an extremely saturated horse market with untouched and untrained wild mustangs that can be dangerous or otherwise undesirable. In attempt to keep wild horses from going to slaughter, the BLM doesn’t give adopters title to their horse until a year after adoption. This well-intended but restricting red tape makes it difficult for trainers to measure turnover of horses and the rural horse-owning demographic typically doesn’t like the federal government to control the livestock on their land. While adoption will continue to play a role in managing wild horses, it will not solve the problems. Again, do the math – an average of 2,602 horses and burros were adopted annually in the years 2015 to 2018. Consider that 10,000 wild horses were born each year 40,000 to 10,408. Half of the wild horses that were adopted out was through the nonprofit Mustang Heritage Foundation

An official government translator was summoned. After he finally stopped laughing, the translator relayed the message: "WATCH OUT FOR THESE JERKS. 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.
As he sat sipping his coffee, a young woman sat down next to him. She turned to the pilot and asked, Are you a real pilot? He replied, 'Well, I've spent my whole life flying planes, first Stearmans, then the early Grummans... flew a Wildcat and Corsair in WWII, and later in the Korean conflict, Banshees and Cougars. I've taught more than 260 people to fly and given rides to hundreds, so I guess I am a pilot, and you, what are you? She said, 'I'm a lesbian. I spend my whole day thinking about naked women. As soon as I get up in the
through innovative programs such as the Extreme Mustang Makeover and Trainer Incentive Program. Fertility Control
As befits every good Western story, we must have a villain. To many, this is the BLM. Now, we need a hero. Enter J.J. Goicoechea, a rancher from Elko County, Nevada. A long-time advocate for doing away with mustangs entirely, this day he leans against his dusty red pickup and talks about the symbol of the American West, the wild horse. It’s a pretty scene, a deep blue sky, rolling hills dotted by black Angus and twenty mustangs of various colors munching on the crested wheatgrass meant for the cattle Goicoechea grazes on public land.
“You gotta look up to them,” he says. “They’re tough,” the fourthgeneration rancher drawls. “But turn a blind eye, in five years’ time there’ll be 100 horse here, and this area won’t look so pretty.”
Goicoechea has long been on the other side in the wild horse controversy, but in this time of political polarization, he is promoting solution he feels will solve the problem and keep the mustang on the range and eventually eliminate the dreaded horse round ups. Goicoechea is doing the almost

morning, I think about naked women. When I shower, I think about naked women. 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.' ••••• One day two Minnesotans, Ole and Sven, found themselves adrift in a lifeboat on Lake Superior. 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.

unbelievable. He has visited Washington D.C. to offer a compromise. Yes, in this time of disruptive political entrenchment, he is working for a compromise. Over the past three years, major ranching, hunting organizations represented by Goicoechea have quietly negotiated with animal welfare groups including the Humane Society of the United States, to develop a proposal that they claim meets the demands of both sides in the battle – it keeps the mustangs alive, yet it reduces the numbers of them on public lands. The hitch? The proposal would cost some $50 million a year to implement, swelling the BLM’s horse budget by two thirds. Secondly, most of the wild horse advocacy groups hate it. The detested roundups that animal activists hate so would be scaled up so that 20,000 horses and burros would be captured. These animals would be kept in private pastures and sanctuaries under ‘natural living situations;’ wild horse adoptions would be increased significantly, and the horses and burros would be more humanely treated. Will PZP Work?
The final rub? The plan includes fertility control using an injectable dosage such as Porcine Zona Pellucida (PZP). Grace Kuhn, spokeswoman for the American Wild Horse Campaign says, “This plan doesn’t benefit the horses at all, or the American taxpayer. It is just business as usual for the livestock industry. It could end up in the killing of thousands of America’s wild horses.”
Still, everyone agrees, to do nothing means the number of mustangs and burros on public land will balloon to 500,000 by 2030. Members of Congress seem interested in Goicoechea’s solution. Gillian Lyons, a senior legislative specialist for the Humane Society Legislation fund supports it as do several Congressmen and representatives from the Western states. “I believe in this solution,” Goicoechea says. In any case, fertility control represents a compromise. Neither the ranchers nor the BLM have bought into contraception on a large scale. In 2018, only 702 wild horses were so treated; the same number roughly, in 2019.
If wild horse populations were reduced to a manageable level and fertility control was applied to the point where population growth equaled the adoption demand, a publicly acceptable and sustainable program would result. Theoretically, this would work, but would require tens of thousands of

done it, Joe. I just said the Church lost a great priest when you left. You're a very special person." I don't think I ever saw Joe lose his temper or blow up - something that happens fairly often to broadcast talent. Radio has its share of prima donnas. Not Joe. He was as down to earth as you could ever imagine.
Tragedy also struck Joe. His wife, Cindy, died on the operating table during a surgical procedure. It shattered Joe when it happened, as it did his daughters. Joe did survive that tragedy, left KFMB for a brief stint in local tv (San Diego) but it didn't really work out.
Mac and Joe had 'magic.' When they were on the air the ideas, jokes, anecdotes simply flowed endlessly. Joe's characters, "Mother Butterbreast," and "Colonel KUFMUB," (his characterization of Paul Palmer, General Manger of KFMB) were hilarious. The thing was, though, the 'magic' was only there when Mac and Joe were on the air together. On those days when either Mac or Joe came down with the flu, or bad cold, and stayed home . . . the on air presence was just that of another dee jay - the magic was missing and the show was not all that interesting. Fortunately, Joe met another lady, a pyschologist, I believe. They married and now live in Utah. I believe Joe is no longer in radio.
Add in to the mix of the Hudson and Bauer show the unusual talent of a guy named Bill Balance and you had a radio station that was hopping from morning till late at night. In the afternoon drive time slot I did the traffic reports with a great pal Scott “Scruff” Evans.
Scruff left KFMB, married he married a very wealthy young woman. She succumbed to an illness and subsequent surgery and died. Scruff inherited her wealth and, last I heard, retired from radio and is living the good life. Bill Ballance has passed away. I attended his memorial service at the Valencia Hotel in La Jolla. The room was packed with colleagues from radio, all of whom had a "Bill Ballance story" to tell. 25 years in radio. It's been a lovely ride and people actually paid me good money to do what I loved and had fun doing. What a life!
I’ve gotten older now and my days behind a mike are behind me. But, thanks to all of those years . . . what memories!
Shower or Laundry?
In 2018 Governor Brown signed two bills which will have a major impact on water use in our state. AB 1668 and SB 606, which I opposed, created stringent water use mandates for all Californians.
One regulation involves a 55 gallon per day indoor water use limit. Contrary to some news reports, this is not an individual mandate. No one will be told they can’t take a shower or do laundry on the same day. The 55 gallon mandate requires water suppliers to meet that standard over the entire agency. Penalties for violations of these standards will fall directly on the agency, not individual customers. Even so, ratepayers will be heavily impacted. Penalties (up to $1,000 per day) that are assessed against water agencies will be passed on to all water ratepayers in the district. Conservation measures forced on the agency will also directly impact its customers. Additional standards for outdoor water use, based on vegetation, climate and other factors, will eventually be determined by the State Water Resources Control Board. No doubt those standards will also involve new penalties and restrictions. This legislation’s stated purpose was to “make conservation a way of life,” even during wet years
when trillions of gallons are flowing out to sea. But a top-down, Sacramento-imposed water mandate is totally unnecessary. Why have we spent billions locally to divorce ourselves from Northern California water if we’re going to be subjected to the same penalties and restrictions as other regions that have made no effort to conserve?
Individuals using more than 55 gallons a day are not causing a water shortage. Lack of political will to build new reservoirs, aqueducts, recycling is the real culprit. Californians should not be punished for the lack of common sense in Sacramento. Assembly Republican Leader Marie Waldron, R-Escondido, represents the 75th Assembly District in the California Legislature, which includes the communities of Bonsall, Escondido, Fallbrook, Hidden Meadows, Pala, Palomar Mountain, Pauma Valley, Rainbow, San Marcos, Temecula, Valley Center and Vista.
5th District Supervisor
As we are now fully into 2020, I thought this would be a great time to talk about the current status of the County of San Diego. One of the questions I get asked most when I’m out is, what does a Supervisor supervise? Well, there are five San Diego County Supervisors and we are in charge of a variety of things from public health, food stamps, Registrar of Voters and many other items. We also manage state and federal dollars for local programs. I have the privilege of not only representing the cities of Carlsbad, San Marcos, Oceanside, Vista as their representative on the Board of Supervisors, but I’m also the government for a lot of the unincorporated areas. Those areas don’t have a city council, they don’t have a mayor, so I am their government official. Some of the District 5 unincorporated areas are Borrego Springs, Fallbrook, Fairbanks Ranch, Palomar Mountain, Rainbow, Ranchita Rancho Santa
Fe, Valley Center and Warner Springs. The County is in charge of your roads and highways, so if you have a problem, reach out to my office! We have many new projects coming to the unincorporated area including adding new sidewalks in Borrego Springs, working with the community on an evacuation plan in Valley Center and creating community driven plan for the Fallbrook Village area and formed based code. I’m excited to see all this transpire as we move ahead in 2020 and hope to see you out in the community!

horses to be rounded up annually, hundreds of volunteers would have to be certified in PZP, and millions of more dollars would have to be allocated by Congress to the BLM. Then there is this. PZP is about 90 percent effective at preventing pregnancies. The process is this: Mares are given a primer dose, followed by a booster dose four to six weeks later; each year would require booster shots.
Will this process be adopted? It is hard to say. But one thing is known. The next gathering is scheduled for April 2020. Then, like an airborne sheepdog, a Judas horse will be released and buzzing helicopters will dart and scream across the landscape and thousands of frightened wild horse – symbols of America’s west will race toward an iron corridor into a holding pen, their days of roaming the wild lands forever over.

Wild Horses – A Symbol of the West
Most people will agree that wild horses and burros should be protected, and that putting an end to slaughtering horses for human consumption has been an important step in that direction. Today, few Americans eat horsemeat, but loopholes allowing some horses to be shipped out of the country for slaughter needed closing. That’s why I co-authored AB 128 with Assemblyman Todd Gloria, aiming to prevent horses sold at auction to be later sold for slaughter. AB 128 passed the Assembly and Senate with wide bi-partisan support and was signed into law by Gov. Newsom last year. At the federal level, the Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management have long been required to manage wild horses, and while the BLM has prohibited the sale of healthy horses to slaugh-

throughout San Diego County, is celebrating one year of serving meals at the Oceanside Senior Community Center (OSCC) this month. To celebrate, Serving Seniors will have a special lunch service at the center on Thursday, January 23. Oceanside Mayor Paul Weiss and Serving Seniors CEO Paul Downey will discuss how the program has impacted the community and share goals for 2020, including expanding the number of meal services offered at OSCC. The lunch will be on Thursday, January 23rd with welcoming remarks at 11am and lunch following to 12:30pm at the Center located at 455 Country Club Lane, Oceanside 92054.
Serving Seniors also offers home-delivered meals to 114 homebound Oceanside seniors each day. To date, the organization has provided 45,315 nutritious meals to 384 unduplicated Oceanside seniors, including 36,056 congregate meals at the OSCC and 9,259 home-delivered meals. Meals provide one-third of seniors' nutrition requirements while accommodating dietary needs including low-sodium and low-fat diets. In addition to meeting nutritional needs, the congregate meal program offers clients an opportunity to socialize and connect with like-minded seniors. In 2019, Serving Seniors' clients reported living on a medium income of $930, with 80 percent living below the Federal Poverty Level. Since 1970, Serving Seniors has been dedicated to helping seniors struggling with poverty and hunger. The number of food insecure seniors is at critical levels in San Diego and loneliness and isolation can have serious consequences for seniors' physical and mental health. Good nutrition is integral to reducing the overalll cost of healthcare. Serving Seniors is a safety net for older adults, serving nearly 600,000 means annually and providing supportive services that keep seniors healthy and independent. Alliance for Regional Solutions Events Volunteers needed! Point in Time Count; The Regional Task Force on the Homeless is continuing their planning for the upcoming 2020 Point-in-Time Count, also known as WeAllCount. As most of you already know, San Diego transitioned to an engaged count methodology last year. Our mission is to engage and survey our unsheltered neighbors the morning of the count where they are at. The WeAllCount event will be Thursday, January 23, 2020, and there is still a big need for volunteers in North County.
2020 Coordinated Plan Workshops with SANDAG holding two Public Workshops; one planned for Wednesday, January 22, from 10am to 12noon, at SANDAG, 7th Floor Board Room, 401 B Street, San Diego 92010; and in North County on Thursday, January 23, from 2pm-4pm at the San Marcos Civic Center, Dining Room, 3 Civic Center Drive, San Marcos 92069. The San Diego Association of Governments (SANDAG) is interested in hearing your ideas on how to meet the region's social service transportation needs. SANDAG will hold two public workshops to gather input on the 2020 Coordinated Public Transit-Human Services Transportation Plan (Coordinated Plan). The first of these workshops will be held two weeks from today, at the next Social Services Transportation Advisory Council (SSTAC) meeting (details below). You're invited to provide input on ways to improve public transit and specialized transportation options for seniors, lowincome, and disabled individuals, and to discuss other issues pertinent to specialized transportation in the San Diego region. If you are unable to attend either of the workshops, please call the Coordinated Plan Hotline at 619.699.1934 to share your ideas and discuss additional outreach opportunities.

Historically Speaking by Tom Morrow
Our Leaders Who Made a Difference
There are a handful of Presidents of the 20th century students of history and civics should get to know in understanding what made America the dominant global nation it is today.
For the most part, today’s young people (those under 40) pay little attention to our history and take for granted America’s position in the world. It was no accident how we got here and understanding how our republic works (civics) is central.
While today’s President Donald Trump is an easy target for his bombastic style, his isn’t that much different than was Theodore “Teddy” Roosevelt, an early 20th century president who found himself in the Oval Office due to the assassination of President William McKinley.
a Roosevelt, Republican, believed in a strong Navy. He U.S. the had Navy’s pre-World War I battleships of the “Great White Fleet” circle the globe showing off our growing power. “T.R.” believed in a “Big Stick” policy … as in … “walk softly but carry a big stick.”
Teddy oversaw the momentous building of the Panama Canal, opening the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific, cutting in half the time needed to go from ocean to ocean without traveling around South American horn.
In 1900, the Republicans ran “T.R.” for vice president to get rid of him. As governor of New York, he had been an irritating maverick to old-guard politicians. Their plan backfired when McKinley was assassinated. As president, “T.R.” created havoc in both government and business with a vast variety of needed reforms.
Herbert Hoover was a popular postWorld War I humanitarian, but he’s best remembered for being an ineffective president. Hoover was complicated a character, yet an important historical figure. After WWII, he was asked by then-President Harry Truman to organize the feeding of millions of Europeans left homeless and starving after World War II. While he failed as a president, Hoover’s greatest accomplishment was being that of humanitarian. After WWI, he had organized the feeding of Europe, and again after WWII, still, Hoover gets the brunt of the blame for the Great Depression, the worst economic disaster in world history. During his presidency Truman pondered that “Mr. Hoover didn’t cause the Depression, it was created for him.”
Arguably, Franklin D. Roosevelt has been called America’s greatest president. He served more than 12 years, guiding the nation through the dark years of the 1930s Depression and into the last five years of World War II. Dozens of books have been written on “FDR,” making his presidency a pivotal time in the century.
However, probably one of our best presidents was Truman. Known among detractors as “His Accidency.” he became president when Roosevelt died a few weeks into his fourth term. Truman moved into the White House and became the only high school graduate of the century to become president. Ironically, “FDR” never had confided in Truman about the atomic bomb. He was told about the highly-secret $2 billion World War II project after assuming office. Truman had to make the decision to drop the two devastating bombs on Japan. It was his most momentous, (and one of the century’s most important) decisions any head-of-state ever made. An estimated half-million U.S. troops and as many as 1.5 million Japanese were saved from death that, if the war continued, surely would have occurred in assaulting the mainland of Japan.
Some five years after WWII, the socalled “Cold War” began and lasted for more than 40 years until Ronald Reagan built up American armed forces to the point it caused the Soviet Union to go broke trying to keep up. The accomplishments of presidents Dwight D. Eisenhower and John F. Kennedy led us through the turbulent 50s and into the 60s. It was “Ike” who was the architect of our Interstate highway system, and Kennedy who launched us to the moon with our space program. Kennedy and his vice president, Lyndon Johnson, changed America with their quest for meaningful civil rights. Reagan was one of the nation’s most charismatic chief executives. He Staunchly was anti-Communist and dedicated himself to defeating the Soviet Union in order to end the Cold War. His building up our military resulted in out-spending the Soviets which caused their collapse. The world took a deep breath as the two super powers backed away from a nuclear war. For those of the younger generations who are bored with or lacking in history and a basic understanding of American civics, may I suggest they study these U.S. presidents. It might help whet your appetite for the necessary ingredients to being a knowledgeable and informed American.
Editor’s Note: For those interested, Tom Morrow has published his latest ebook, "A Primer to World War II.” This book is designed to point out key events during the pivotal 20th century event. It's a series of columns he’s written over the past five years in helping those who don't know have a better understanding of how close our way of life was eliminated.

terhouses, the Forest Service has not. Last year, I signed a letter asking Senators Feinstein and Harris to add language to the Interior Appropriations bill to prohibit the destruction of federally protected wild horses and burros, and their sale for slaughter. Fortunately, the House and Senate included that language in the appropriations bill for the next fiscal year. As a result, both federal and state governments are moving to finally ban the slaughter of horses.
We need to come to a place in history where we have embraced the intent of the federal Wild FreeRoaming Horses and Burros Act of 1971, declaring these wild freeroaming horses as living symbols of the historic and pioneer spirit of the West and their enriching value to our lives. I am very glad to do my small part to help protect these wonderful animals. America’s wild horses and burros are a national treasure. Ensuring they survive and thrive is our collective responsibility. Assembly Minority Leader Marie Waldron

Matt Hall has been Mayor since 2010 and he will update us on the 2020 elections. Joining the Mayor will be the endorsed Republican candidates running for the Carlsbad City Council in District 1 (Tracy Carmichael), District 2 (Keith Blackburn), and District 4 (Phillip Urbina). Each candidate will briefly address the club and attendees will have an opportunity to meet with and ask questions of their City Council candidates. The Carlsbad City Council is “districted,” meaning voters will ONLY VOTE for the candidate representing their district. City Council Districts 1, 3, and 4 are up in this election cycle. These races are non-partisan; thus, the political party affiliation will not appear on the ballot. It is extremely important for you to know your district # and to know the Republican candidate who wants to represent you! CRWF is also honored to have club member, Dr. Melanie Burkholder, the 2020 endorsed Republican candidate for the 76th CA Assembly seat in attendance on the 28th. Dr. Burkholder will address the group and give us an update on her 2020 Assembly race. Several candidates for the 2020 Republican Central Committee will also speak at the meeting. Carlsbad Republican Women Federated is an active force in local political campaigns and CRWF members are ramping up to assist candidates, the Republican Party of San Diego County, and the California Republican Party (CRP) in this important election year. Carlsbad Republican Women Federated general meetings are held the fourth Tuesday of the month at the Green Dragon Tavern and Museum, 6115 Paseo del Norte, Carlsbad, CA 92011. Doors open at 11:00am and the program begins at 11:30am. Cost is $30 members/$35 nonmembers. For more information, contact Ann at (760) 415-7006 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Please RSVP no later than Friday, January 24th at 2pm. Check us out at www.CarlsbadRepublicans.com.

Escondido • Mayor Paul “Mac” Mcnamara Greetings Escondido,
I had a radio interview with KOGO and by the time this goes to press it will already have played. The interview was basically me talking about Escondido for about 20 minutes as if you didn’t live here. Not just what we have but the initiatives we were working on. It was easy to do, but it was one of those moments of pause in one’s life that really make you think about what a wonderful city this is.
As I went through in my mind the various areas that you would expect the mayor to talk about, I kept thinking how lucky I am, and we are, to live in this city. There wasn’t an area – innovation, art, culture, sports, education, affordability, location, etc. that didn’t have a lot of bragging points. What really struck me was that all of those bragging points are directly attributable to the people who live in this community. We are fortunate to have each other as neighbors. Thank you!! Semper Fi, Mac Paul P. McNamara Mayor of Escondido firstname.lastname@example.org

New Shows Bring Disability Representation Front and Center RespectAbility "Fighting Stigmas Advancing Opportunities" is excited to announce that even though 2020 may havge only just started, they already have a lot of entertainment news to share with you! With one-in-four adults having a disability in the U.S. today, the lack of representation – just 3 percent on screen – means that millions of people are unable to see themselves in media today. Two new shows premiering next week are bucking that trend. The Healing Powers of Dude, a show about a middle schooler with social anxiety disorder, premieres on Netflix, and I, along with my colleagues Tatiana Lee and Ariella Barker, was proud to consult on the show. Everything's Gonna Be Okay stars Kayla Cromer, an actress on the autism spectrum, and it premieres on Freeform. And have you seen children's show Arthur's episode on "The Princess Problem?" Our former Communications Fellow Emily Kranking brings us a heartfelt piece on the topic. Did you notice any

Dispose of Old Gadgets Easily
With new devices gifted during the holidays, residents often wonder what to do with old electronics and gadgets. Remember that cellphones, TV’s, tablets, computers or other e-waste should not be thrown in trash containers.
The City of Vista offers free, convenient disposal of e-waste and other household hazardous items, such as old paint or motor oil.
Drop off your old gadgets and electronics or household hazardous waste at the Collection Facility located at 1145 E. Taylor Street in Vista. It’s open from 9 am to 3 pm on Saturdays. There is no fee to Vista residents; however, proof of residency is required. Diverting these items from landfills and properly disposing of them are both good for protecting our environment and for the whole community. Check CityofVista.com for a complete list of items accepted or contact the Public Works Department at 760.639.6177.
Oceanside • Mayor Peter Weiss PURE WATER OCEANSIDE
On December 18, the Oceanside City Council approved the construction of Pure Water Oceanside, a project that will purify recycled water to create a new local source of drinking water. In 2009, Oceanside’s City Council set a goal to have a 50% local water supply by 2030. Pure Water Oceanside allows the City to ensure it reaches that goal.
Once completed in 2022, Pure Water Oceanside will be the first operating advanced water purification project in San Diego County. The project will provide more than 32% of the City of Oceanside’s water supply, or 3-5 million gallons per day.
Pure Water Oceanside will purify recycled water using state-of-the-art technology that replicates and accelerates nature’s natural recycling process. The water is injected into the ground, where it will blend with the naturally occurring groundwater and recharge the aquifer. The water is then extracted and treated again and finally distributed to customers in the City.

Thirty Abandoned Roosters Need New Homes - The San Diego Humane Society encourages rooster adoptions at its Escondido campus. The Humane Society is looking for new homes for 30 roosters. The birds were abandoned overnight on Saturday, December 28 at a feed store in Escondido. The owner left a note explaining he could no longer take care of the animals. The birds were taken to SDHS. The roosters, who are all healthy and social, are available for adoption at the Humane Society's Escondido campus. If you are interested in adopting, check with your city of residence to make sure you are allowed to have a rooster. Some city ordinances prohibit roosters. SDHS urges pet owners who are unable to take care of their animals to bring them to SDHS rather than abandoning them. SDHS is an open admission shelter, meaning the society will never turn an animal away. The Society's scope of social responsibility goes beyond adopting animals. We offer programs that strengthen the human-animal bond, prevent cruelty and neglect, provide medical care, educate the community and serve as a safety net for all pet families. Serving San Diego County since 1880, SDHS has campuses in Escondido, Oceanside and San Diego. For

The Doomsday that came and went
By the time you read this column, Jan 14th will have come and gone and Microsoft will have abandoned Windows 7 to leave twisting in the cold winter wind. Microsoft warned us that those who do not upgrade to Win10 would not be protected. Like the Allied bombers in WW II targeting German cities well beyond the range of their fighter escorts. Like Davey Crocket and Jim Bowie at the Alamo, alone, out of bullets and out of luck. There is a tendency to dismiss the hype over the demise of Win7. We heard the same

Sven looked disgustedly at Ole whose wish had been granted, and after a long tension-filled moment, Sven said, "Nice going Ole! Now we're going to have to pee in the boat." •••• Cars will soon have the Internet on the dashboard. I worry that this will distract me from my texting. •••• Rrriiiiinnnnggg, rrriiiinnnngg, 'Hello?'
'Hi honey. This is Daddy. Is Mommy near the phone?'
'No, Daddy. She's upstairs in the bedroom with Uncle Paul.'
After a brief pause, Daddy says, 'But honey, you haven't got an Uncle Paul.' 'Oh yes I do, and he's upstairs in the room with Mommy, Right now.' Brief Pause.
'Uh, okay, this is what I want you to do. Put the phone down on the table,
Perhaps somewhat. It is definitely in the financial interest of Microsoft and the entire PC software and hardware industry to have everyone using a single operating system. Win10 has features that benefit “enterprise” users but offers little, if any tangible advantage over Win7 for home and small business users. Microsoft and the PC industry are working in concert to force home and small business users to switch to Win10 because it benefits them, not us.
As of Tuesday (Jan 14th), 30% of America’s Windows PCs still run Win7, 60% run Win10. To put that in perspective, there are about fifty thousand Windows desktop and notebook PCs here in San Marcos. As of today 15,000 of them are still running the Win7 operating system. What is going to happen to these users?
There are some large “preferred” Microsoft customers (corporations, schools and governments) who simply have not yet upgraded to Win10. For them Microsoft will, (for a price), continue to support Win7 exactly as they have since 2009. That’s right; nobody gets laid-off at Microsoft because Win7 run upstairs and knock on the bedroom door and shout to Mommy that Daddy's car just pulled into the driveway.' 'Okay, Daddy, Just a minute.'
A few minutes later the little girl comes back to the phone. 'I did it, Daddy.'
'And what happened, honey?'
'Well, Mommy got all scared, jumped out of bed with no clothes on and ran around screaming. Then she tripped over the rug, hit her head on the dresser and now she isn't moving at all!' 'Oh my God! What about your Uncle Paul?'
'He jumped out of the bed with no clothes on, too.
He was all scared and he jumped out of the back window and into the swimming pool. But I guess he didn't know that you took out the water last week to clean it. He hit the bottom of the pool and I think he's dead.' Long Pause

is no longer supported. For Microsoft’s Win7 support group, it’s business as usual. They’ll continue to fully support Win7 just as before, but this Win7 extended (full) support is available only for Windows “Enterprise” and “Professional” users with “volume licensing agreements.” Full support is available for Microsoft’s “preferred” customers, but not for you. It is available, the work has been done, but we can’t have it.
So what’s the bottom line for us small business and home users who still run Win7 on our PCs? It’s our opinion that there will be no immediate dramatic repercussions. Our guess is that sometime in the next thirty to sixty days there will be a well publicized attack on some newly discovered Win7 vulnerability and that Microsoft will save the day by graciously offering the “fix” to all Win7 users, even though they are not obligated to do so. This salvation will come with a gentle

reminder that Microsoft won’t keep doing this forever and that users really need to upgrade to Win10.
Eventually banking, stock trading, commercial and social media sites will bar access to Win7 users and new versions of applications and programs simply won’t be compatible. Our recommendation to our users is to move to Win10 sooner than later. At the Computer Factory there are three ways to do this. Upgrade your existing tower/desktop/notebook PC to Win10 ($120165), purchase a Win10 “refurbished” PC ($200 and up), or work with us to design and build your own new Computer Factory PC (from $495-$4,000). Many of our small business and home users feel that Win10 not only provides no benefit, it also forces them to pay for the privilege of learning new ways to do the things they already knew how to do. It is difficult to dispute this logic.

The "5K Paw Walk in the Garden" There's only one day of the year when you can walk your dog in the San Diego Botanic Garden. The 8th annual "5K Paw Walk in the Garden" will take place on Saturday, February 15th, from 8am to 12noon. Your Rancho Coastal Humane Society (RCHS) and the San Diego Botanic Garden (SDBG) will join paws to raise funds that support people, plants, and pets. "Saturday is the perfect time to take your dog for a walk and the San Diego Botanic Garden is the perfect place,” says Kelly Peters, RCHS Director of Donor and Community Relations. “The 5K Paw Walk lets you do something you’re already going to do on the only day when you can walk your pet through the Garden.” The 5K Paw Walk in the Garden is the walk that every dog is begging to go on. Dogs love it. They get excited just driving through the entrance to the Garden. It’s not a race. Walkers can cover the full 5 kilometer / 3.1 mile course, but that’s optional. You don’t need a dog to participate. There are plenty of dogs there to pet. Day of event registration starts at 7:30am and paws cross the starting line at 9am. Register uourself, your team, or for a virtual 5K Paw Walk in the Garden o n l i n e : https;//rchumanesociety.org/events/5kpaw-walk-in-the-garden/. There will be pet products, food (for people), treats (for dogs), information and displays for animal lovers, a pet first aid station, and (of course) dogs.

Theodore Roosevelt's ideas on Immigrants and being an AMERICAN in 1907
'In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American ... There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag ... We have room for but one language here, and that is the English ... And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.' Theodore Roosevelt 1907
