In a male-dominated society we often forget how vital women are, not only in terms of procreating our species, but in their overall importance in shaping our destiny and civilization. The fact that women, inherently, think differently than their male counterparts gives them a unique advantage of ‘thinking outside the box’ in key situations that have helped turned the tide of history. That women have a different vantage point in comprehension and attitude than males is, often, startling as well as humorous. Their unique attitude is captured in the following amusing anecdote which illustrates the different viewpoints between the sexes: An English professor wrote the following sentence on the blackboard, “A woman without her man is nothing.” The professor then instructed his students to punctuate the sentence correctly. The men wrote: “A woman, without her man, is nothing.” In turn, the women wrote: “A woman: without her, man is nothing.” Both sides were grammatically correct in their punctuation of the same sentence, yet the meanings of the sentence are now diametrically opposed! A world without women would mean a world without the likes of Nefertiti (ca. 1370 BC – ca. 1330 BC), the revolutionary Egyptian queen whose reign saw the wealthiest period of ancient Egyptian history. Or the great and powerful Cleopatra (69 BC – 30 BC), the last active pharaoh of Ptolemaic Egypt, and a pivotal figure in history. The list seems endless: Joan of Arc (1412 –1431), who successfully led the French to victory at Orleans; Catherine the Great (1729-1796), one of the greatest political leaders of the Eighteenth Century; Harriet Beecher Stowe (1811 – 1896), anti-slavery campaigner, whose novel, “Uncle Tom’s Cabin,” was a best seller. President Abraham Lincoln went so far as to say that her books were a major factor behind the American civil war.
But that was the distant past. What about now, in today’s modern world? Where are all these great women today? Men often are unaware of these feminine movers-and-shakers that, quite literally, continue to alter the world we live in today. The egocentric bubble we often exist in does not allow us to see outside our own society to better appreciate what is truly happening in the ‘bigger picture of life,’ today. For

example, few know of Benazir Bhutto (1953 – 2007), the first woman to become head of state of a Muslim country. She became the 11th Prime Minister of Pakistan on December 2, 1988, serving for two non-consecutive terms (1988-90 and 1993-96). She helped move Pakistan from a dictatorship to a democracy! No small feat in a Muslim world. For a reality check, 62% of the world’s total Muslim population live in South and Southeast Asia (not the Middle East), with over 1 billion followers. The world’s largest Muslim population in any country is Indonesia, followed by Pakistan. Mrs. Benazir Bhutto made a difference in that part of the world. After completing her early education in Pakistan, she continued her higher education in America, where the experience left an indelible imprint on her life. Bhutto once said her time at Harvard University were “The four happiest years of my life!” and said it formed the very basis of her belief in democracy. But she paid the supreme sacrifice for her ideals in implementing these social reforms, such as helping transform her country into a
democracy, as well as helping women and the poor. She was assassinated in 2007. But her work lives on. History records the words of her acceptance speech as Prime Minister, wherein her love of American ideals made a difference in her life: “We gather together to celebrate freedom, to celebrate democracy, to celebrate the three most beautiful words in the English language: ‘We the People.’” She helped change the world we live in today.
And yes, we all know of the first woman Prime Minister of Great Britain, Margaret Thatcher (1925 – 2013), nicknamed “The Iron Lady.” Thatcher ruffled a lot of male feathers when she was quoted as saying, “If you want something said, ask a man; if you want something done, ask a woman.” It may surprise you to know that the term, “Iron Lady,” was first applied to Israeli Prime Minister, Golda Meir (1898 – 1978), before Britain’s Margaret Thatcher. How tough was Golda Meir in the volatile Middle East? She was greatly feared and respected, causing former Prime Minister, David Ben-Gurion, to call her,
“The best man in the government.” And just because she was a woman, her Arab enemies thought she might be stereotypically weak. Their perception of women, in this case, was quickly re-evaluated as a deadly mistake. She once quipped, “I understand the Arabs wanting to wipe us out, but do they really expect us to cooperate?” She was not afraid to use Israel’s nuclear arsenal if pushed too far, “Do you think we’re so particular whether we die by nuclear weapons or conventional weapons?” But, what about World War II? Certainly, that was a man-driven war that was won solely by men, right? I mean, overall, men won it, with some bit of help from women, like all those ‘Rosie the Riveters.’ Well, this may shock you out of your socks, but, if it weren’t for women scientists in the Second World War, we just might have lost that big donnybrook! Exaggeration? Hmm, most scholars today think otherwise. As all historians are aware, the

race to produce the first atomic bomb was a frantic one. If we failed, or delayed too long, Hitler’s Germany might beat us to the punch. Probable or not, we could not take that chance. Without all the exaggerated hype, it is a well established fact that the Germans discovered nuclear fission. In December of 1938, two chemists reported they had detected the element Barium after bombarding uranium with neutrons. This effort was confirmed as being nuclear fission! In April 1939, the Reich Ministry of War was informed of the potential military application of nuclear energy. Whether they would have successfully proceeded to create the first atomic bomb is relegated to pure conjecture. But, again, during World War II, no unnecessary chances were to be risked. As it was, the Soviets were fast on our heels and, in fact, shocked the western allies when they successfully detonated their first atomic bomb on August 29, 1949. As reported by the world press, “It came as a great shock to the United States because they were not expecting the Soviet Union to possess nuclear weapon knowledge so soon!” So, we got the atomic bomb first - what does this have to do with women? And, if women had a key role in the development of the atomic bomb, why is this not common knowledge today? Well, in our race to quickly succeed in this area (the Manhattan Project), we
Give Us This Day Our Daily Chuckle This week, a compendium of wit, wisdom and neat stuff you can tell at parties. Enjoy! Travel Tale
Abe and Esther are flying to Australia for a two-week vacation to celebrate their 50th anniversary.
Suddenly, over the public address system, the Captain announces, "Ladies and Gentlemen, I'm afraid I have some very bad news... Our engines have ceased functioning and we will attempt an emergency landing. Luckily, I see an uncharted island below us and we should be able to land on the beach. However, the odds are that we may never be rescued and will have to live on the island for the rest of our lives!" Thanks to the skill of the flight crew, the plane lands safely on the island.
confronted some huge problems we were not able to solve. Remember, any delay could shift or alter the outcome of the Second World War. I hope you’re sitting down, because this may surprise you, but women scientists were crucial in the development of the world’s first atomic bombs at Los Alamos, New Mexico! These women physicists were not merely spear carriers who assisted in minor roles; instead, they proved to be the harbingers who often solved the key problems that male physicists were unable to solve! Such an example was Dr. Maria Goeppert Mayer, a Ph.D physicist, who led 20 scientists and technicians in physics research. She emerged as the most famous woman who worked on the Manhattan Project. Her unrivaled genius became evident, years later, when she won-out over all her male counterparts in winning the 1963 Nobel Prize in physics (the world’s highest award) for her indispensable work in developing the theory of nuclear shell structure! So why are these important women of genius relegated to near-anonymity? Why are their names still smudged-out and missing from our school text books today? And why are these women giants not taught in our seats of learning – our fountains of knowledge – so that our small children may learn of them, and grow up acknowledging their true contributions? If women achievements were of such global significance, wouldn’t any attempt to cover-up their contributions in the creation of the world’s first
An hour later Abe turns to his wife and asks, "Esther, did we pay our VISA and MasterCard bills yet?" "No, sweetheart," she responds. Abe, still shaken from the crash landing, then asks, "Esther, did we pay our American Express card yet?"
"Oh, no! I'm sorry. I forgot to send the check," she says.
"One last thing Esther. Did you remember to send the estimated earnings check to the IRS this quarter?" he asks. "Oh, forgive me, Abe," begged Esther. "I didn't send that one, either." Abe grabs her and gives her the biggest kiss in 40 years.
Esther pulls away and asks him, "What was that for?" Abe answers, "THEY'LL FIND US!" •••• Tom's Scrotum The best story of the year doesn't give the proper praise and credit for this painful but understandable story as told by a loving wife.
The pastor asked if anyone in the congregation would like to express praise for answered prayers.
atomic bombs -- which ended the Second World War -- be the height of male arrogance and prejudice? Tragic as it may be, that is precisely the reason: male prejudice, which – except for the very naïve – still persists today.
Many historians today, both male and female, are now only beginning to overturn these deliberate acts of omission regarding feminine genius during World War II that have been suppressed for far too many years. Today’s research scholars are still uncovering a shocking gold mine of information regarding the Manhattan Project: “Because of the prevailing attitudes toward women, very little information about these women’s contributions was released during and after World War II. Women worked on essentially all aspects of the Manhattan Project before the first bombs went overseas.” (“Their Day In The Sun,” by Howes and Herzenberg, Temple Univ. Press, 1999). It is beyond shameful that these fiercely patriotic women of genius had to endure gender prejudice and jealousy on a most vicious level: “Prevailing societal attitudes toward women assured that no women rose to high-level positions with the Manhattan Project.” (Ibid.)
Other stellar women who worked on the development of the first atomic bombs are legion, but to name only a few, Leona Wood Marshall Libby worked with Enrico Fermi’s group, assisting in the first self-sustaining nuclear chain reaction on December 2, 1942.
Suzie Smith stood and walked to the podium. She said, "I have a praise. Two months ago, my husband, Tom, had a terrible bicycle wreck and his scrotum was completely crushed. The pain was excruciating and the doctors didn't know if they could help him." You could hear a muffled gasp from the men in the congregation as they imagined the pain that poor Tom must have experienced.
"Tom was unable to hold me or the children," she went on, "and every move caused him terrible pain. We prayed as the doctors performed a delicate operation, and it turned out they were able to piece together the crushed remnants of Tom's scrotum, and wrap wire around it to hold it in place." Again, the men in the congregation cringed and squirmed uncomfortably as they imagined the horrible surgery performed on Tom.
"Now," she announced in a quivering voice, "thank the Lord, Tom is out of the hospital and the doctors say that with time, his scrotum should recover completely." All the men sighed with unified relief. The pastor rose and tentatively asked if anyone else had something to say.
She has been relegated to being only a footnote. A deliberate act of male prejudice.
Other notables were ChineseAmerican patriot, Chien-Shiung Wu, who went on to create 5 inventions in experimental atomic physics! Wu helped create the first reactor that was used for the first atomic detonation in New Mexico on July 16, 1945, less than one month before Little Boy and Fat Man (code names of our country’s first atomic bombs) were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Japan, thus ending World War II. Another “Mother of the Atom Bomb” was Elizabeth “Diz” Riddle Graves, who worked at Los Alamos developing a neutron reflector to surround the core of the atomic bomb, itself. Graves was a patriot so fiercely devoted that she continued to work for her country’s defense while she was still pregnant! Her love and devotion to country had her stubbornly commit to finishing a series of experiments -- even as she went into labor! She monitored the first nuclear explosion (the Trinity Test) in New Mexico. There are too many women of repute to name here. “At least 85 women helped design and construct the atomic bomb.” (Howe and Herzenberg, Ibid).

lost and forgotten, is Lise Meitner, one of eight Jewish children; a woman so intellectually superior that it moved Albert Einstein to refer to her as “Our Marie Curie.” She was not immune to male arrogance. “While professional jealousies only threatened to keep Marie Curie from receiving the Nobel Prize, they succeeded in denying Meitner the same recognition.” (The Washington Post Co, Marcia Bartusiak, 1996.) What you are about to read is both shocking and disturbing. Historical paper trails reveal that Lise Meitner and Otto Hahn worked on a theoretical model of nuclear fission. At first, Hahn was unable to understand and solve a neutronbombardment experiment so he wrote to Lise Meitner asking for her help. To quote from Hahn’s own words, he wrote to Lise Meitner: “Perhaps you can come up with some sort of fantastic explanation.” She did! In a few days of collaboration, she did the ‘impossible’ and came up with that ‘fantastic explanation’ and helped to create a theoretical model of nuclear fission which led the way to the making of the atomic bomb! Here comes the real shocker: Hahn published his research findings without even listing Lise Meitner as co-author! With her name missing from the key experimental paper on nuclear fission, Hahn, alone, received the 1944 Nobel Prize. (“The Making of the Atomic Bomb,” by Richard Rhodes, Simon & Shuster, 1995.) Most students of World War II are familiar with the Manhattan Project and such luminaries as Enrico Fermi, J. Robert Oppenheimer, and Niels Bohr who helped create the first nuclear reactor and subsequent atomic bomb. But, less known were the brilliant women physicists that the U.S. Government brought into the Top Secret

communities in raising funds for transplant-related expenses. In Escondido, volunteers are raising funds for COTA in honor of transplant patients like local toddler, Emersyn Ochoa. Emersyn is the daughter of Maggie Haynie and Miguel Vizcarra. Born on April 3, 2014, Emersyn was diagnosed with Dilated Cardiomyopathy. The doctors at Rady Children’s Hospital in San Diego have recommended a life-saving heart transplant. An estimated $100,000 is being raised by Escondido volunteers. Volunteers are needed to assist with fundraising activities that will help with transplant-related expenses. Emersyn’s family has asked for assistance from the Children’s Organ Transplant Association (COTA). The organization’s priority is to assure that no child or young adult is denied a transplant or excluded from a transplant waiting list due to lack of funds. One hundred percent of all funds raised are used for patients’ transplant-related expenses.

Just think. A world without women would have been disastrous and might have altered major world events in the worst of ways! Also, many of our military veterans, police officers and emergency first-responders are alive today, because of women! Even our automobiles were made better, and safer, because of their amazing contributions. Sound pretty outlandish? Well, let’s take a hard look at our modern world. A most striking example is Stephanie Kwolek, who was a topdrawer, true genius. She was one of Dupont’s premiere chemists, and the discoverer of Kevlar, often called “The Miracle Fiber.” It is used in ropes and cables for drilling rigs, canoe hulls, boat sails, even automobile bodies and tires. Also, it is used in the making of military and motorcycle helmets. Many of our military veterans and police officers are alive today because of Kevlar, which is used in making bullet-proof vests! Kwolek’s creation is so miraculous that it proved superior to the old-fashioned steel-plated vest which could not stop a bullet – but, ¼inch Kevlar can! The so-called ‘miracle fiber’ can also withstand temperatures of up to 900-degrees Fahrenheit and is, subsequently, used by such emergency units as fire department personnel that served so bravely during our disastrous 9/11 attack. Hedloc (Kevlar) was patented by Stephanie Kwolek in 1971. Its creation has saved countless human lives, an amazing legacy left by a woman!
Dr. Patricia Bath was one of the greatest and most important women in the field of ophthalmology (branch of medicine which deals with the anatomy, physiology, and diseases of the human eye).

Born to poor parents in Harlem, Dr. Bath became the first African-American woman doctor to receive a patent. With another discovery and implementation, the genius of Dr. Bath allowed her to restore sight to people who had been blind for over 30 years! Bath founded and became the first president of the American Institute for the Prevention of Blindness. Luckily for the entire world, Patricia Bath fought numerous odds, besides gender and racial prejudice, and conquered them all. In so doing, she gave countless people new lives, and new sight! This woman made the world a better place.

Since time immemorial, women have played key roles in the advancement of our civilizations, worldwide. Even as far back as Sappho (ca. 620 BC – ca. 570 BC), the great Greek lyric poet whose writings have survived to this day. Her poetry was so brilliant in the ancient world that it moved Plato to call her one of the greatest of all writers! From Mary of Nazareth, the earthly mother of the Christian deity, to Florence Nightingale (1820 – 1910) who pioneered a significant improvement in the treatment of wounded soldiers, women have proven indispensable harbingers. Escondido’s own eclectic armchair scholar, Mike Romero, places Florence Nightingale at the top of his list among women of great achievement. And for good reason, Nightingale saved more human lives by proving that more soldiers at hospitals were killed by poor living conditions than their injuries! By pioneering hospital sanitary conditions, her reduction of peacetime deaths, worldwide, is staggering! From

On Saturday, January 16, at about 5:49 pm, officers from the Escondido Police Department were dispatched to Palomar Medical Center located at 2185 Citracado Parkway regarding a serious injury collision. Officers arrived at 5:55 PM and found three persons already being treated by hospital staff. Based on driver statements, witness statements, and evidence at the scene it appears the following occurred. A white 2000 Toyota Tacoma was being driven by 89 year old John Marin, a San Marcos resident. Mr. Marin was driving near the front entrance to the hospital when he suddenly accelerated and struck two persons.
James Donaldson, age 63 from Oceanside, had just been treated at the hospital and was being pushed in a wheel chair by a friend, Elena Cendejas, age 67, also an Oceanside resident. Lifesaving measures were unsuccessful and Donaldson later died from the collision injuries. Cendejas was admitted to the hospital in stable condition. Mr. Marin was evaluated at the hospital but did not sustain any injury.
The cause of this collision is still under investigation. The investigation is ongoing and is being conducted by Russ Gay of the Traffic Division. Anyone with information on this case is encouraged to

Son Kills Turtle, Threatens Mom
He’s a 26-year-old mentally disabled man who killed his mother’s pet turtle and then threatened her last Saturday, resulting in a five-hour standoff with sheriff’s deputies before he surrendered,
During the course of the standoff the son said he was going to become famous by killing lots of people. The mother managed to escape the home and was able to call 911 about 10:30 a. m. to report that her son was high on drugs and had shot her small turtle at their home in the Rancho Vallecitos Estates mobile home park on Linda Vista Drive. The mother and son argued and he threatened her, brandished a pistol, and made threats of suicide by cop, according to Sheriff’s officials.
Deputies tried to talk the son into coming out of the home, but he told them they would have to shoot him. A SWAT team was called in about 2 p.m. and lobbed tear gas into his bedroom through the windows. He came out at 3:30 p.m., Schaller said.

We helped Doug get started with his highly successful Big Band Radio show that lasted for years ... until he retired about a year ago.
Even in his latter years we would get together on the radio and kibbits. He’d call me ever Saturday morning around 8:30 and we’d talk about whatever it is that older gents talk about at 8:30 on Saturday mornings. After our morning chat he’d slip back into the music business and play some of the big band sounds that, sadly, are not much more than memories today.

It was controversial, setting up long-term leases at a San Marcos mobile home park, but it won approval last week from the City Council.
The change at the El Dorado Park mobile home community on Capalina Road comes more than two years after city officials started lobbying for similar agreements at six San Marcos mobile home parks as a way to more easily manage rent disputes.
But at Tuesday’s council meeting, El Dorado residents said they backed the change, calling it a fair compromise with the park owners, two North County couples who bought the community two years ago. Many mobile home parks are owned by big companies with multiple parks.
Though we were only slightly older when we became acquainted, we shared many of the hopes and dreams described by Davis. We were pals, buddies and best friends, and we did everything together. We were as close, maybe closer, than brothers.
Residents in several parks have actively opposed the agreements, calling them unfair contracts that would burden home owners — many of whom are seniors on a fixed income.

Those who supported the 15-year lease called it a good compromise that lays out small rent increases and fairly delineates which costs for park improvements will be passed on to residents. Opponents said it undermines the city ordinance designed to protect mobile home residents from unreasonable rent increases.
“We believe the lease is flawed, in addition to being oppressive and unfair,” said Lloyd Rochambeau, president San Marcos Mobilehome Residents Association, which advocates for mobile home park residents. Many have said the leases remove protections, and force residents to pay for park repairs they argue are the onus of the park owner. With the City Council’s approval of the El Dorado deal, the leases are now tied to the property. That means the leases remain in place if a mobile home park is sold.

restraing order remains intact until a state judge rules on the district’s request to make the order permanent. Since the order took effect, Fragozo has been banned from all district property, including the district headquarters where board meetings are held. On Thursday, he participated in a trustee meeting from his one-bedroom Escondido apartment where he listened to public comment, voted on board matters, and discussed areas of concern while connected to the board’s speaker address system via his cell phone.
District Superintendent Luis Rankins-Ibarra has accused Fragozo of loud and bullying behavior that Rankins-Ibarra said began soon after he started with the district in 2014. On Friday, the superintendent testified for a second day about what he called Fragozo’s “threatening” language and demeanor. In one instance involving Fragozo’s inability to obtain an agenda packet for a board meeting, Fragozo allegedly told Rankins-Ibarra that, “If you don’t do what I ask of you I am coming after you.” The superintendent said he perceived Fragozo’s statement as a threat of violence. Rankins-Ibarra, and trustees Zesty Harper and Paulette Donnellon testified last month that Fragozo has harassed administrators with bullying text messages, emails, finger-pointing
It’s a Busy January in Sacramento
January is always a busy time in Sacramento, especially at the start of the second year of a two-year session. In addition to hundreds of new bills that are being introduced now, any bill carried over from last year must be approved in its respective house by the end of January.
Two of my bills from last year are still being considered by the Assembly. AB 59, Laura’s Law extension will continue to provide court ordered outpatient treatment for the mentally ill for five years beyond the statute’s current sunset date of January 1, 2017. Thus far, 12 California counties, including Los Angeles, San Diego and Orange, have implemented Laura’s Law, which has helped provide badly needed care for mentally ill patients who are incapable of seeking help on their own or who present a threat to themselves or oth-
antics and name-calling. The superintendent has said the behavior has caused him to fear for his life.
Fragozo has said that the allegations are false.
Three other district executives joined Rankins-Ibarra in the complaint: Kevin Rubow, assistant superintendent of human resources; Leila Sackfield, deputy superintendent in charge of educational services, and Kelly Prins, assistant superintendent in charge of student support services. They were scheduled to testify in the court hearing late Friday. SWAT Standoff in San Marcos Ends With Man in Custody
A SWAT standoff in the 3500 block of Linda Vista Drive focused on a man wanted for making criminal threats and who then holed up inside a mobile home and refused to surrender.
Homes next to where the suspect was hiding had been evacuated and there were road closures in the area as well as a Sheriff's Helicopter or ASTREA flying overhead making announcements urging the suspect to surrender peacefully. Ultimately Sheriff's deputies took the suspect into custody. No one was hurt. The Sheriff's Department thanks the public for their patience and cooperation during the inconvenience.
AB 73 is also still pending from last year. AB 73 requires that any denial of coverage by Medi-Cal of drugs prescribed to treat HIV/AIDS will be subject to a 24-hour “urgent appeal” process if the medical necessity of the drug can be demonstrated by the doctor and the drug is FDA approved. I am happy to report that both bills are moving through the legislative process. This month, AB 59 passed the Judiciary Committee on a bipartisan vote, and will soon be heard by the Appropriations Committee. AB 73 has also been referred to the Appropriations Committee.
AB 59 and AB 73 must receive final legislative approval from the Assembly by the end of January in order to be forwarded to the Senate. Though time is short, I have high hopes for both.

look through the kitchen window. He says that if it gets much worse, he may have to let her in. Pray for Leroy
A preacher said, "Anyone with 'special needs' who wants to be prayed over, please come forward to the front by the altar."
With that, Leroy got in line, and when it was his turn, the Preacher asked, "Leroy, what do you want me to pray about for you?" Leroy replied, "Preacher, I need you to pray for help with my hearing." The preacher put one finger of one hand in Leroy's ear, placed his other hand on top of Leroy's head, and then prayed and prayed and prayed. He prayed a "blue streak" for Leroy, and the whole congregation joined in with great enthusiasm. After a few minutes, the preacher removed his hands, stood back and asked, "Leroy, how is your hearing now?" Leroy answered, "I don't know. It ain't 'til next week.” Alabama
A group of Alabama friends went deer hunting and paired off in twos for the day. That night, one of the hunters returned alone, staggering under the weight of an eightpoint buck. "Where's Henry?" the others asked. "Henry had a stroke of some kind. He's a couple of miles back up the trail," the successful hunter replied. "You left Henry laying out there and carried the deer back?" they inquired. "A tough call," nodded the hunter. "But I figured no one is going to steal Henry!" Georgia
The owner of a golf course in Georgia was confused about paying an invoice, so he decided to ask his secretary for some mathematical help.
He called her into his office and said, "You graduated from the University of Georgia and I need some help. If I were to give you $20,000, minus 14%, how much would you take off?" The secretary thought a moment, and then replied, "Everything but my earrings." Louisiana
A senior in Louisiana was overheard saying ... "When the end of the world comes, I hope to be in Louisiana."
Historically Speaking by Tom Morrow
When asked why, he replied, "I'd rather be in Louisiana because everything happens in Louisiana 20 years later than in the rest of the civilized world." North Carolina
A man in North Carolina had a flat tire, pulled off the side of the road, and proceeded to put a bouquet of flowers in front of the car and one behind it. Then he got back in the car to wait. A passerby studied the scene as he drove by and was so curious he turned around and went back. He asked the fellow what the problem was. The man replied, "I have a flat tire."
The passerby asked, "But what's with the flowers?"
The man responded, "When you break down they tell you to put flares in the front and flares in the back. I never did understand it neither." Tennessee
A Tennessee State trooper pulled over a pickup on I-65. The trooper asked, "Got any ID?" The driver whut?"
The Sheriff pulled up next to a guy unloading garbage out his pick-up truck into the ditch. The Sheriff Asked, "Why are you dumping garbage in the ditch? Don't you see that sign over your head?
"Yep" he replied. "That's Why I'm dumpin' it here, 'cause it says "Fine for Dumping Garbage". ••••• You can say what you want about the South, but you never hear of anyone retiring and moving North. ••••• A U.S. Marine Colonel was about to start the morning briefing to his staff. While waiting for the coffee machine to finish its brewing, the colonel decided to pose a question to all assembled.
He explained that his wife had been a bit frisky the night before and he failed to get his usual amount of sound sleep. He posed the question of just how much of sex was "work" and how much of it was "pleasure?" A Major chimed in with 7525% in favor of work.
A Captain said it was 50-50%. A lieutenant responded with
The Nation’s First Trailblazer
Daniel Boone, born Nov. 2, 1734, was an American pioneer, explorer, woodsman, and frontiersman, whose frontier exploits made him one of the first folk heroes and arguably our first trailblazer of the United States.
Boone is most famous for his exploration and settlement of what is now Kentucky, which was then part of Virginia, but on the other side of the mountains from the settled areas. Contrary to popular belief, Boone did not wear a coonskin cap – that was Davy Crocket. Boone blazed his Wilderness Road through the Cumberland Gap in the Appalachian Mountains from North Carolina
25-75% in favor of pleasure, depending upon his state of inebriation at the time. There being no consensus, the colonel turned to the PFC who was in charge of making the coffee. What was HIS opinion?
Without any hesitation, the young PFC responded, "Sir, it has to be 100% pleasure."
The colonel was surprised and, as you might guess, asked why? "Well, sir, if there was any work involved, the officers would have me doing it for them." The room fell silent.
God Bless the enlisted man. ••••• When I sing in the shower, I sound like Julio Eglesias. When I sing outside the shower, I sound like Elmer Fudd. ••••• A cowboy appeared before St. Peter at the Pearly Gates. 'Have you ever done anything of particular merit?' St. Peter asked.

and Tennessee into Kentucky. There, he founded the village of Boonesborough, Kentucky, one of the first American settlements west of the Appalachians. Before the end of the 18th century, more than 200,000 Americans migrated to Kentucky/Virginia by following the route marked by Boone.
Boone was a militia officer during the Revolutionary War (1775–83), which in Kentucky was fought primarily between the American settlers and the British-aided Indians. Boone was captured by Shawnee warriors in 1778. He escaped and alerted Boonesborough the Shawnees were planning an attack. Although heavily outnumbered, Americans repulsed the Shawnee warriors in what became known as the Siege of Boonesborough. Boone was elected to the first of his three terms in the Virginia General Assembly during the Revolutionary War, and fought in the Battle of Blue Licks in 1782. Blue Licks, a Shawnee victory over the Patriots, was one of the last battles of the Revolutionary War, coming after the main fighting ended in October 1781 when British Gen. Lord Cornwallis surrendered to George Washington at Yorktown, Va.
Following the war, Boone worked as a surveyor and merchant, but fell deeply into debt through failed Kentucky land speculation. Frustrated with the legal problems resulting from his land claims, in 1799, Boone emigrated to eastern Missouri, where he spent most of the last two decades of his life (1800–20).
Boone remains an iconic figure in American history. He was a legend in his own lifetime, especially after an account of his adventures was published in 1784 by John Filson, making him famous across Europe as the typical all-American frontiersman. An American edition made him equally famous across the United States. After his death, he was frequently the subject of heroic tall tales and works of fiction. His adventures—real and legendary— were influential in creating the archetypal Western hero of American folklore. In American popular culture, he is remembered as one of the foremost early frontiersmen. The epic Daniel Boone mythology often overshadows the historical details of his life.
Because he grew up on the frontier, Boone had little formal education, but deep knowledge of the woods. The historian John Mack Faragher cautions that the folk image of Boone as semiliterate is misleading, and argues that he "acquired a level

He was sitting in his boat the other day when he heard a voice say, 'Pick me up.' He looked around and couldn't see anyone. He thought he was dreaming when he heard the voice say again, 'Pick me up.'
He looked in the water and there, floating on the top, was a frog.
Gary said, 'Are you talking to me?' The frog said, 'Yes, I'm talking to you.'
Pick me up then, kiss me and I'll turn into the most beautiful woman you have ever seen. I'll make sure that all your friends are envious and jealous because I will be your bride!'
Gary looked at the frog for a short time, reached over, picked it up carefully, and placed it in his front pocket. The frog said, 'What, are you nuts? Didn't you hear what I said? I said kiss me and I will be your beautiful bride.' Gary opened his pocket, looked at the frog and said,
'Nah, at my age I'd rather have a talking frog.' The Afghan Quarterback
The coach had put together the perfect team for the Chicago Bears. The only thing that was missing was a good quarterback. He had scouted all the colleges
and even the Canadian and European Leagues, but he couldn't find a ringer who could ensure a Super Bowl win.
Then one night while watching CNN he saw a war-zone scene in Afghanistan . In one corner of the background, he spotted a young Afghan Muslim soldier with a truly incredible arm. He threw a hand-grenade straight into a 15th story window 100 yards away. KABOOM!
He threw another hand-grenade 75 yards away, right into a chimney. KA-BLOOEY!
Then he threw another at a passing car going 90 mph. BULLS-EYE! "I've got to get this guy!" Coach said to himself. "He has the perfect arm!"
So, he brings him to the States and teaches him the great game of football. And the Bears go on to win the Super Bowl.
The young Afghan is hailed as the great hero of football, and when the coach asks him what he wants, all the young man wants is to call his mother. "Mom," he says into the phone, "I just won the Super Bowl!"
"I don't want to talk to you,’ the old Muslim woman says."You are not my son!"
"I don't think you understand, Mother," the young man pleads.
"I've won the greatest sporting event in the world. I'm here among thousands of my adoring fans." "No! Let me tell you!" his mother retorts. "At this very moment, there are gunshots all
around us. The neighborhood is a pile of rubble. Your two brothers were beaten within an inch of their lives last week, and I have to keep your sister in the house so she doesn't get raped!"
The old lady pauses, and then tearfully says, "I will never for-

In 47 years in the law business I have learned a few
things: I am not super religious, but I tell my clients that if we did what Jesus said “Love your neighbor as yourself” and “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you” we would not need Laws, Lawyers, Judges or Courts. But alas! this is not the real world. Our system of resolving disputes often requires having Lawyers who will push extremely hard in representing their clients’ positions. Even Jesus took strong measures “Jesus went to the temple in Jerusalem, made a whip of cords, and drove out the money changers who were doing business there.” I dare not compare myself to Jesus, but this is what we do in my office!

the American Civil War, Crimean War, the first and second World Wars, Vietnam, and to the present, her incalculable theories led to the creation of the United States Sanitary Commission. Various books, television specials, and films have captured her rich legacy, affording her the international title of “The Founder of Modern Nursing.” In 2002, Nightingale was ranked among the top 100 Greatest Britons, a remarkable level of achievement, which she lived to see. Then there is Marie Curie (1867 – 1934), the first person (male or female) to win the Nobel Prize in two separate categories, our lives are enriched. (Curie split the 1903 Nobel Prize in physics with her husband). A few years later, this remarkable woman helped develop the first X-ray machines!
I don’t know about you, but I just don’t wish to imagine the world without the touch of a Mother Teresa (1930 – 1997), or Dorothy Hodgkins (1910 – 1994), who was awarded the Nobel prize for her pioneering work on critical discoveries of the structure of both penicillin and later, insulin. These discoveries all moved the world to better health and better lives. The list goes on and on, and there are just too many to list here. Many sprung from the unlikeliest parts of the world, such as Iranian lawyer, Shirin Ebadi (1947 to the present), a woman so determined to fight for human rights that she was awarded the
Nobel Peace Prize in 2003.
There is much to say about the spirit of a woman that never ceases to amaze me. They may be the most downtrodden, the most persecuted, the most ridiculed, and the most ignored, yet they somehow persevere, like a lone flower which – miraculously – is found to bloom in a desolate and most hateful environment. They are the mother of us all, and they nurture us in the good times as well as the bad. In some cases, they shame us when we feel sorry for ourselves by radiating optimism and love, as if to tell us ‘love conquers all.’ It reminds me of Anne Frank (1929–1945) the little Dutch/Jewish girl, whose precious diary remains among the most widely-read literary works in the world today. It reveals the heartwrenching innocence of a 13-yearold girl, confined to a hiding place to escape death. In her little dark world, with no sunlight of happiness, this small frightened girl somehow wrote what was in the deepest recesses of her tender but resilient heart: Despite everything, I believe that people are really good at heart.” Anne Frank died at age 15 in the Holocaust. She represents the best of women. While a young girl in some respects, she was mature beyond her years. Prior to her family going into hiding, Anne Frank gave her friend and neighbor, a book, a tea set, a tin of marbles, and the family cat for safekeeping. Her words in her diary tug at the heartstrings after entrusting her small treasures for safekeeping, “I’m worried about my marbles, because I’m scared they
might fall into the wrong hands. Could you keep them for me for a little while?”
A little while never came for her. Anne Frank reminds us all that childlike innocence, wherever it abounds, will never be extinguished. Amidst a maelstrom of turbulence and horror, she continues to speak to us today from her precious diary. The simple fact that her diary, which later was made into a book that is among the most widely-read in today’s world, reveals the legacy she left behind which challenges us all to be better human beings. No, I cannot imagine a world ever being without her. Her spirit is still with us today.

of literacy that was the equal of most men of his times." Boone regularly took reading material with him on his hunting expeditions—the Bible and Gulliver's Travels were favorites. He was often the only literate person in groups of frontiersmen. Boone would sometimes entertain his hunting companions by reading to them around the evening campfire. On July 14, 1776, Boone's daughter Jemima and two other teenaged girls were captured outside Boonesborough by an Indian war party, who carried the girls north towards the Shawnee towns in the Ohio country. Boone and a group of men from Boonesborough followed in pursuit, finally catching up with them two days later. Boone and his men ambushed the Indians while they were stopped for a meal, rescuing the girls and driving off their captors. The incident became the most celebrated event of Boone's life. James Fennimore Cooper created a fictionalized version of the episode in his classic novel “The Last of the Mohicans,” (1826). A popular image of Boone which

Statewide, voters have opted for legalization to medical marijuana. Within our county, the DA rarely prosecutes marijuana related citations. If not fully legalized, it has been decriminalized.

Aurora, a 10-year-old Arab horse, is looking for a new home to call her own. She was transferred in from another shelter with her friend, Shadow, and is slowly learning to trust her handler.

Pastor Sam Brumit Mission 316 - San Marcos Focusing on Just a Few Things
Every year I start out and hope to get a bunch of things done. I mentally make resolutions. I’ve come to realize that I seldom can get that many BIG things done at a time. I have to choose what I spend my time on. I have this great tendency to try to take on too much. It’s tough to narrow them all down… so many choices. I know intuitively that to accomplish the things that are most important means saying “no” (a word I struggle with) to lots of other things. Seizing opportunities means understanding there are lots of great goals…I’m not called to fulfill all of them. Part of what God is showing me is that I need to focus on the few
What are some of your goals for this year? Planning a trip? Changing jobs? Reading the Bible through all the way? Growing spiritually? Being a better spouse or parent? Choose a few! Write them down.
The apostle Paul said to “redeem the time.” Practically speaking, I hope to become a more effective communicator, spend more time developing leaders and to delegate lots of the things that I used to think only I could do or only I could do well. All of us should make the most of every opportunity that He calls us to seize. Jesus knew His mission well. To seek and save lost people; to bring hope and healing to the nations. He primarily focused on a few people…who in turn changed the world through Him. If you find your gifts and callings, you may find that doing these few things will bring immense joy. And who knows… you may find you are impacting more lives by focusing on fewer goals. There goes my list of resolutions … hopefully here comes progress!

emerged in later years is that of the backwoodsman who had little affinity for "civilized" society, moving away from places like Boonesborough when they became "too crowded." In reality, however, Boone was a leading citizen of Kentucky at this time.
When Kentucky was divided into three Virginia counties in November 1780, Boone was promoted to lieutenant colonel in the Fayette County militia. In April 1781, he was elected as a representative to the Virginia General Assembly, which was held in Richmond. In 1782, he was elected sheriff of Fayette County.
Boone spent the last 20 years of his life in Missouri. He died on Sept. 26, 1820. He has become one of America’s most iconic characters and it’s fair to say much of his life has been exaggerated throughout history. Nonetheless, he deserves a revered place in our history.

Cleaning Out the Garage
During this time of the year many homeowners make New Year’s resolutions to take on the task of organizing garages, cleaning out attics, and clearing off decks and patios. While clearing out the closets or garage, think about items that the family no longer needs or wants. Consider diverting as much of these discarded items out of the local landfill by donating them to charity. Cleaning out the garage? If you have old and broken electronics, old paint or oil cans, used batteries, or other toxic products that are not suitable for donation, do not throw
them away with your regular trash. Instead, take them to the Vista Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) facility.
Residents should drop off household hazardous waste at the collection facility located at 1145 E. Taylor Street (open from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturdays, except holidays). While there is no fee to Vista residents, proof of residency is required. When tackling spring cleaning this year, please think twice about helping others and helping the environment. Diverting solid wastes from landfills and properly disposing of household hazardous wastes is good for the whole community.

Market forecasters are predicting little or no growth in sales for smart phones in 2016. PC and tablet sales are declining and smart phone sales are stagnant? What’s going on?
Paul & Nome Van Middlesworth, The Computer Factory
PC sales are shrinking, Why?
Worldwide PC (notebook and desktop) sales peaked in 2011 at 365 million units. By 2015 unit sales had fallen to 289 million, a 20% drop. Market analyst are split on whether PC sales will plateau or continue to fall in 2016. No one predicts a near term recovery. Why? Are “tablets” cutting into PC sales? Not that much, although tablets obviously have taken the place of some low end notebooks, tablets are heading for the exit even faster than PCs. The sales of high end tablets (Apple and Android) that actually compete with notebooks have been in a steeper decline than PCs during the past three years. Smart phone sales have tripled since 2011 growing from 500 million in 2011 to 1.5 billion in 2015. While smart phones have disSUPERIOR COURT OF CALIFORNIA, COUNTY OF LOS ANGELES

The answer is that computing and communications technology has not been able to offer the kind of advances that excite users and stimulate sales. Perhaps that will eventually change but the vast majority of users aren’t buying new PCs, tablets or smart phones because new products don’t offer much that is new or useful.
The average business or home user with a five year old Win7 desktop or notebook PC has little to gain from a new Win10 PC. It can’t go faster on the Internet and won’t run accounting, spreadsheets, word processing or solitaire any faster than the old one. Newer faster hardware might be of benefit to a small percent of users who use high function applications like video/audio editing, solids modeling or extreme gaming but the rest of us get little but the pain of having to learn a new OS. Businesses and home users are simply finding no incentive to buy new PCs.
and applications technology. You bought a new PC every couple of years because it was simply worth doing. That is no longer true. In 2010 Microsoft gave us Windows 7, a very good, stable, 64bit OS (operating system). Windows 8 and 10 offered users nothing new. Up to 90% of our applications are Internet based today and a brand new two thousand dollar PC can’t suck electrons off the Internet any faster than your five year old PC.
In the past five years and for the foreseeable future, most of us see little need for change in the way we use our PCs. Today’s PCs are more durable, cheaper to repair and easier to upgrade than they were in the “old days.” Instead of expecting to buy new PCs every

WARNING - IMPORTANT INFORMATION
California law provides that, for purposes of division of property upon dissolution of a marriage or domestic partnership or upon legal separation, property acquired by the parties during marriage or domestic partnership in joint form is presumed to be community property. If either party to this action should die before the jointly held community property is divided, the language in the deed that characterizes how title is held (i.e., joint tenancy, tenants in common, or community property) will be controlling, and not the community property presumption. You should consult your attorney if you want the community property presumption to be written into the property.

two or three years we can expect a useful life of between five and ten years. The drop in PC sales since 2011 has several interrelated factors but the number one reason businesses and home users have not been buying new PCs since 2011 is that their existing Windows 7 PCs are as good as anything new the industry has to offer. If you are still using an XP PC you need a new PC, if you are using Vista you may be able to upgrade to Win7. If you want to stay with Win7 on a new desktop or notebook PC or if you need more oomph out of your existing Win7 PC come see us at The Computer Factory. We take trade-ins.

Tooth Preservation or Implant Placement
Long term tooth versus implant survival rates
Technological advances in the development of implants to replace "hopeless" or missing teeth along with a high predictability of survival rates has lead to the increasing popularity and clinical success of implants. This could result in the extraction of a person's natural teeth, that are salvageable, on the convenience rather than as a result of a comparative analysis between the survival of a natural tooth and its implant counterpart. Faced with the option of restoring a natural tooth versus extracting it and placing a dental implant, the doctor should take the following as well as others into consideration:
1. Is the tooth or area restorable? 2. Will it be strong? 3. What is the long term prognosis of the tooth vs. implant? 4. Compliance of the individual for maintaining the tooth or implant? 5. Does patient have systemic condition ie. diabetes, heart conditions, periodontal conditions. Also, smoking status. 6. Past experiences with patients tooth loss? 7. Long term survival of individual?
These are just a few factors affecting the patient. Financially, the patient should consider the cost of implants as well. They may not make a lot of difference with a single tooth, but if multiple sites are proposed, the cost factor can go up tremendously. If the tooth is restored in many cases, it can have a survivability that may equal, or even outlast the prognosis of an implant. Implants require good bone to survive, and if the bone is not adequate, additional bone must be provided to the site including bone grafts and/or sinus lifts, etc. This may also add to both the expense and time required to place an implant. After an implant fails, the next step is placing another implant.
Researchers report significantly lower success rates for reimplantation than for the original implant. With a tooth that started in the mouth by nature, if it is restorable, it frequently will last a long time without the amount of bone required by an implant.
There are many things to consider in deciding whether to place an implant versus restoring the tooth. As doctors we have patients come in every day with the idea of removing a tooth and placing an implant. On the other hand, we, as practitioners, have to resist the impulse to automatically go with the patient's wishes look-
ing more thoroughly at the overall results. If the bone is adequate and the natural tooth cannot be restored then the implant is chosen. However, in many cases, the patient is not adequately informed as to the survivability of the proposed implant and it is our responsibility to inform them of situations where the natural tooth may be the better choice in the long term. We do both procedures here at San Marcos Dental Center, but we thoroughly evaluate both options before suggesting a solution. Call us at 760 7344311!
