Volume 49 - No. 09
By Richard “Pete” Peterson
On a recent Saturday morning on Centre Center Parkway in Escondido, nine shoppers were asked the way to Safari Park. As the old joke goes, “You can’t get there from here, you have to go to San Diego,” was maybe the most knowledgeable response until Shopper Ten spoke up. “You mean, the old San Diego Wild Animal Park?

down this street ‘til you come to Highway 78. Hang a right. Safari Park is on your left after a short drive.” Bingo!
Known as the San Diego Wild Animal Park until 2010, Safari Park is an 1,800-acre zoo attraction located in the San Pasqual Valley area of Escondido. One of the largest tourist attractions in San Diego County, Safari Park is a relatively unknown and
underappreciated by many, though it has been in existence since 1964. Safari Park employs 400-600 seasonal workers augmented by 600 to 900 volunteers. One recent morning, of the twelve stands open for business, nine were staffed by volunteers.
The idea for the park began at the San Diego Zoological Society – the largest such membership organization in the

world - first as a supplementary breeding facility for the San Diego Zoo, then as a moneymaking attraction as ample space for large animals of the hooved variety was located.
From the very beginning, the development was designed to differ significantly from that of a typical zoo, in that animals would be exhibited in a natural environment rather than in cages or enclosures. In 1964,

this idea was assessed financially, and construction moved into three separate ideas - a conservation farm, a game preserve, and a natural environment zoo. This later idea was finally chosen, even though it was the more expensive of the options. The original estimated cost was $1,755,430. (Is that precise enough?)
The main purposes were to be species conservation, breeding of animals for the San Diego Zoo and other zoos, and providing a safe area where zoo animals could be conditioned. The idea that it could be a feecharging attraction surfaced at about the same time. Five initial names for the facility were considered: San Diego Animal Land, San Diego Safari Land, San Diego Wild Animal Safari, San Diego Wildlife Park and San Diego Wild Animal Park, with the latter winning out. The scheduled opening was set for April 1, 1972; however, the gates remained closed until May 10th, due to last minute construction miscues. The general layout of the park, designed by

Charles Faust, included a large lagoon with a jungle plaza, an African fishing village, an aviary and approximately 50,000 landscaping plants. Due to the continual unreliable availability of animal species and other snags, the time table for the park to be fully stocked with animals was necessarily expanded from the original 3 years after groundbreaking ceremonies, to ten years. In actuality, this process is on-going and continual. Lions, Tigers and Bears
Not really. There are no bears, as in grizzlies, here. The first two animals to arrive were the nilgai, an antelope from the plains of North India, and the black-and-white striped Grant's zebra, native to East Africa. These ambassadors were soon joined by the gemsbok, (a type of oryx from Namibia), the sable antelope, a horse antelope from Central & South Africa, the greater kudu, (a striped, spiral horned antelope from East & South Africa), and the white rhinoceros. The inclusion of the latter was a coup for the park, as the white rhino was in danger of extinction at that time. AND STAND UPSIDE DOWN ON THE DRAINING BOARD.

Quickly the park added other rhinos and ten cheetahs. The cheetah, the world’s fastest land animal, was the first of many, which were brought to the park for breeding purposes. Today, the park is home to over 3,000 animals, from 300 species.
An interesting side note to cheetah breeding, is that they, like that tabby at your feet, the house cat, are feral animals, never to be fully domesticated. To help the cheetah relax a bit, and maintain a peaceful status, man’s best friend, the dog was assigned to each one as a constant companion. The thinking of the cheetah seems to be, “If my doggy friend ain’t bothered, I’ll relax and enjoy my tour.” The First Controversy Arises
At first all was well, but as the zoo added to their animal population, controversy arose. In the summer of 2003, the San Diego Zoological Society and Lowry Park Zoo of Tampa, Florida orchestrated the capture of eleven wild African elephants from the Hlane Royal National Park in Swaziland, assuring the general public that these animals were scheduled to be killed due to over-populaMan Kills Self Before Shooting Wife And Daughter:

tion. However, several wild-life organizations disputed this claim. One such watch dog was the In Defense of Animals. They maintained that if new fencing was added to the park where the elephants were kept, it would be far less costly than the capture and transport of the elephants to San Diego and Lowry Park, thus there was no reason to remove the elephants from Swaziland. The Save Wild Elephants Coalition agree with this assessment and reported that other sanctuaries in Africa had offered to take the elephants, but the transfer was completed anyway.
An August 23, 2003, article in the San Diego Union Tribune reported the arrival of the elephants at the park, stating that People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals and other organizations protested this delivery. Various other wellplaced sources said a fee of $2,000,000 was paid to Swaziland for the elephants, but this was never verified, nor was it made clear who paid this fee, if it was paid.

reached the conclusion that “large sums of monies paid to African nations is part and parcel of the exotic animal business.”
Be that as it may, five of these transports are now at the Safari Park, and cumulatively they’ve produced thirteen babies as of 2013. In March 2012, a bull elephant, two cows and two baby bulls were moved to the Reid Park Zoo in Tucson, Arizona. Their purpose? To form a new elephant herd. This caused much flak from PETA about the breaking up of animal families.
Two months earlier in 2012, Connie, a 44-year old Asian elephant, and 31-year old Shaba, an African elephant, were sent to the San Diego Zoo from Reid Park Zoo. They had been close companions for over 30 years. When it was announced the animals were to be shipped separately, and housed apart, a firestorm of criticism erupted. The Zoo listened and responded. As a result, the pair was kept together. Unfortunately, Connie died from cancer after only five

Safari Park is not without other challenges. Located in a rural area replete with vegetation and trees, in October 2007, the Witch Creek Fire burned 600 acres of native habitat preserved in the park, forcing it to close for two days. Management has since implemented in depth responses to fire challenges; threatened animals will be quickly moved to safe refuges in subsequent fires. Wild fires have not yet reached any of the Zoo’s main enclosures, and no animals have been directly killed by fire, but the deaths of a clapper rail and kiang were attributed to indirect effects of the 2007 blaze. New Name – New Branding
In June 2010, the San Diego Zoo board of trustees voted to change the name to the San Diego Zoo Safari Park, so as to clarify what it offers, since visitors were often unclear as to the difference between the zoo proper and the "animal park".

The name "safari" is supposed to emphasize "the park's spacious enclosures of free-ranging animals" (as opposed to "the closer quarters of the zoo"), encouraging visits by tourists to both locations. Rhinos in the African Plains
The park's largest exhibits, covering over 300 acres are openrange enclosures where visitors may view animals in habitats reminiscent of the plains of Africa and Asia. The Asian Savanna for instance, covers 60 acres and displays a number of Asian animals such as the Indian rhinoceros, Bactrian camels, and several species of Asian deer and antelope such as blackbuck, and other exotic deer and wapiti. The African Plains represents many regions and habitats of Africa. For example, the East Africa Plains displays cape buffalo, southern white rhinoceros, Rothschild's giraffe, reticulated giraffe, fringe-eared oryx, and waterbuck, as well as impala and gazelle. A lagoon with East African crowned cranes, Dalmatian pelicans, Sacred ibises & Great white pelicans can also be viewed.

On 02/15/19 at 5:26 PM, Escondido Police and Fire personnel responded to a report of a pedestrian collision in the area of 9th Avenue and Quince Street. Emergency personnel arrived and discovered 59-yearold male pedestrian had been struck by a vehicle. Based on witness statements and physical evidence at the scene, the pedestrian was walking north on Quince Street and stopped to tie his shoe near an alleyway. A 29-yearold Escondido resident was driving a 2006 Nissan Armada west in the alley. As the driver pulled onto Quince Street, he struck the pedestrian.
The pedestrian suffered serious but non-life-threatening injuries. The investigation is ongoing and being conducted by Traffic Investigator Steve Braucht of the Traffic Division. Serious Injury Traffic Collision Carlsbad
On Feb. 14, 2019 at 8:36 p.m., Officers from the Carlsbad Police Department responded to the 7000 block of El Camino Real regarding a report of a vehicle that struck a pedestrian. Upon arrival, Officers located one male lying in the roadway with serious injuries. The injured pedestrian was transported by the Carlsbad Fire Department to

a local area hospital. The preliminary investigation suggests that the pedestrian was standing in the northbound traffic lanes of El Camino Real when the driver of a Nissan Versa, who was travelling northbound on El Camino Real, struck the pedestrian. The driver of the Versa remained at the scene. Alcohol intoxication is not suspected to be involved in the collision. The investigation into the cause of the collision is underway. The pedestrian has been identified as a 36 year-old male. The driver of the vehicle has also been identified as a 50 year-old male. DUI Checkpoint Nets Two Arrests
The Escondido Police Department arrested two individuals while conducting a DUI/Driver’s License checkpoint on 02/23/19. One subject was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol and the other for driving a stolen vehicle. The checkpoint was at Valley Parkway and Juniper St.
Following are additional results from this event: 1294 vehicles drove through the checkpoint. 761 vehicles were screened in primary. 56 vehicles were sent to secondary screening (drivers who could not produce a driver’s license or who

DUI Checkpoints are placed in locations based on collision statistics and frequency of DUI arrests. Last year the Escondido Police Department investigated 90 DUI collisions that killed 4 people and injured 120 others. Drivers caught driving impaired and charged with DUI can expect the impact of a DUI arrest to be approximately $13,500. This includes fines, fees, DUI classes, license suspension and other expenses not to mention possible jail time.
The Escondido Department reminds drivers that “DUI Doesn’t Just Mean Booze.” Prescription drugs, particularly those with a driving or operating machinery warning on the label, can impair and result in a DUI. Marijuana can also be impairing, especially in combination with alcohol or other drugs.

Because I feel so strongly on animal cruelty, I am finding it hard to respond to the articles of dog abandonment. To me, abandonment is the wrong word for the first case. Those puppies were too young to be separated from their mother. Left in a sealed bag!

Went to the shoe department and while the computer said they had the shoes I wanted they were out of stock. But they ordered them for me. Bought two pair of loafers. About $150. Saw a number of sport coats that looked good, as well as slacks and sport shirts.
But I was tired and decided to call it a day and head home. Went back on Sunday to Macy’s and completed my shopping.
Several months ago Charlie began to lose weight, his skin color wasn’t good, and he was weak and tired - not like him at all. All of us who know and love Charlie were worried particularly Susie, his daughter.

I'm wondering if Penny's will go the way of Sears and have to close a number of stores. If the lack of service is any indicator I'm betting they will not survive. I’m not going back.

The underground segment represents the rainforest ‘understory’; the canopy above is home to a variety of geese and beautiful birds.
California Condor. The then Wild Animal Park, played a key role in the successful recovery of these birds. Here in Condor Ridge, among North American desert wildlife, is one of the few places to view these magnificent birds in captivity. And there’s also a chance you’ll see desert bighorn sheep as well.
Opened in October 2004, Lion camp houses the park's thirteen African lions in a 1-acre exhibit. An artificial rock ‘kopje’ with a 40-foot glass viewing window and heated rocks dominates this attraction. For the more adventurous, a stroll through an acacia-studded ravine leads to a replica observation tent, with a smaller viewing window and a disbanded Land Rover for the lions to rest on.
Formerly known as Heart of Africa, these are two of the park's major exhibits. Visitors go down a trail which replicates habitats in Africa, beginning with the African Woods where scrub animals and vultures such as the Egyptian and hooded vulture lurk. Here the giant eland, okapi, duikers, red river hogs, and different species of cranes, storks cavort. The path leads to African Outpost, which features plains animals warthogs, bat-eared foxes, ground hornbills, Kori bustards, and cheetahs against a backdrop of open-range East Africa.

(maybe even a chuckle). A priest and a rabbi were sitting next to each other in an airplane.
After a while, the priest turned to the rabbi and asked, 'Is it still a requirement of your faith that you not eat pork?' The rabbi responded, 'Yes, that is still one of our laws.' The priest then asked, 'Have you ever eaten pork?'
To which the rabbi replied, 'Yes, on one occasion I did succumb to temptation and tasted a ham sandwich.' The priest nodded in understanding and went on with his reading.
A while later, the rabbi spoke up and asked the priest, 'Father, is it still a requirement of your church that you remain celibate?' The priest replied, 'Yes, that is still very much a part of our faith.' The rabbi then asked him, 'Father, have you ever fallen to the temptations of the flesh?'
The priest replied, 'Yes, rabbi, on one occasion I was weak and broke

has been retired, partially due to high maintenance costs. In early 2007 a renamed Africa Tram, opened. It brings visitors to the field exhibits to see wildlife from high above. Another route is planned through the Asian field and into eight new exhibits that will house a variety of African animals from rock hyrax to Hartmann's mountain zebras. The wheeled tram runs on biofuel instead of a monorail. The park has also added a tethered balloon ride that allows visitors to see the plains exhibits from 400 feet in the air. (The balloon ride is not included in the entrance fee.) Walkabout Australia
Walkabout Australia is the park's only Australia exhibit, 3.6 acres, featuring western grey kangaroos, red necked wallabies, Australian brush turkeys, radjah ducks, freckled ducks and magpie geese. All this walking make you hungry? Walkabout Australia has a restaurant, The Sheared Sheep. (There are a number of other cafes and eating establishments in the Park, including The Watering Hole at Kijami Overlook and 18 other places for snacks, pizza, wine and beer.) Back to Walkabout Australia, a new exhibit, the Platypus Pond, is scheduled to open in early 2019. Good News for Conservation
The Safari Park, as stated, had a major role in the recovery of the California condor. Working with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Los Angeles Zoo, the last twenty-two condors in the wild were taken into captivity in 1987. To breed them quickly, Safari Park professionals removed the eggs from the nests to induce the females to lay a second one. The removed egg was hatched in an incubator and raised with condor hand puppets to prevent human imprinting, while the second egg was hatched and raised by its parents. Captivebred condors were reintroduced into the wild beginning in 1992; today their population is 369, with 191 soaring free as of March 2011.
Bad News For Conservation
On December 14, 2014, Angalifu, a park favorite, 44year-old male northern white rhinoceros, died of old age, leaving only five northern white rhinos remaining in the world, including one female at the park. Roughly a year later, the park's last Northern White Rhino, 41-year-old Nola was euthanized due to bacterial infection and rapidly failing health. Good News? The Frozen Zoo
As devastating as it was to lose the northern rhino - the last of the species died in 2018 – there’s hope for the future of now-threatened or almost extinct species through the use of genetic material taken from animals. The park’s frozen zoo is a facility wherein DNA, sperm, eggs, embryos and live tissue are stored at very low temperatures in tanks of liquid nitrogen. Material thus preserved can be kept indefinitely and used for artificial insemination, in vitro fertilization, embryo transfer, and cloning. Some facilities also collect and cryopreserve plant material (usually seeds).
The frozen zoo was the brain child of pathologist Kurt Benirschke – better known as the father of Rolf Benirschke the long-time San Diego Chargers field goal and point after touchdown kicker – who earlier had saved Poland’s Przewalski's horses, in 1972. When he first conceived the idea, there was no technology available to make use of the collection, but Benirschke believed such technology would be developed in the future. This idea got further support when Gregory Benford, the science fiction writer and astrophysicist, a faculty member at University of California, Irvine, wrote a paper in 1992 proposing a Library of Life. Zoos such as the San Diego Zoo and research programs - Audubon Center for Research of Endangered Species for example - were fast to respond, and to cryopreserve genetic material in order to protect the diversity of the gene pool of endangered species or provide for a

Can’t See a Doctor?
We have some of the best medical care in the world, but accessing that care can be difficult for millions of Californians. Unfortunately, we don’t have enough doctors and nurses, and the situation is likely to get much worse in the near future. According to the California Future Health Workforce Commission, we don’t have enough healthcare professionals practicing in the right places to meet the needs of our growing and aging population. Many rural areas, including parts of Riverside and North Inland San Diego County in my district, feel the effects of this shortage. Seven million Californians live in federally designated ‘Health Professional Shortage Areas,’ counties with a severe shortage of primary care providers, dentists, or mental health care practitioners. Over the next decade, we face a shortage of 4,100 primary care physicians, nurse practitioners and other medical professionals. According to some estimates, the cost of overcoming this shortage could be more than $3 billion. There’s no single solution, but Assembly Republicans are supporting legislation by Assemblyman Heath Flora, (R-Ripon) to expand

Medical student debt averaged $32,000 in 1986. That had escalated to $190,000 by 2016, with some students amassing debt in excess of $200,000 by the time they complete their training. Forgiving college debt for medical and nursing students who commit to work in underserved areas for a minimum of five years could go a long way toward improving patient access and easing the doctor/nursing shortage throughout the state.

I would imagine everyone at one time or another has visions or dreams of having a conversational meal with someone considered great or a genius.

I was an executive at the famed Hotel del Coronado and had just staged a 25th anniversary celebration of Wilder’s legendary film “Some Like It Hot,” starring Jack Lemmon, Tony Curtis, and Marilyn Monroe. I invited everyone for a fabulous weekend of fun. Lemmon, Curtis, and Wilder showed up, along with many of the supporting cast still living. It was a flawless weekend that went off exactly as I had planned it.
Wilder’s film accomplishments are rivaled by no one. His list of screenplays since 1929, included Greta Garbo’s “Ninotchica,” “Hold Back the Dawn,” “Champagne Waltz,” and dozens more. As a writer-director he won Academy Awards and other awards for “Sunset Boulevard,” “Stalag 17,” “The Lost Weekend,” “Double Indemnity,” “The Apartment,” “The Seven Year Itch,” “Witness for the Prosecution,” “The Spirit of St. Louis,” “Sabrina,” “The Front Page,” plus “Some Like it Hot,” to name a few. On the Sunday morning after an evening of celebration, I received word that Mr. Wilder wanted to have breakfast with me. I had a brief phone conversation with Lemmon, asking if the invitation was real or simply a polite gesture by Wilder.
cigar. I had placed a box of expensive cigars in his suite upon his arrival on Friday evening. That morning I arrived at the same time as Lemmon, who Wilder also had invited.
We had breakfast while Lemmon and I sat listening to Wilder talking on a number of subjects, including being back at the hotel after 25 years. He recalled how difficult Marilyn had been to work with him, Lemmon and Curtis. About how she held up the filming while her two co-stars stood patiently by, in high-heels and drag waiting for their next scene with her. The film has since been heralded the greatest comedy put on film; Hee talked about art, which he was one of the world’s great experts. Earlier, Lemmon had told me of a night many years earlier when he accompanied Wilder to a private showing at a Beverly Hills art gallery. “Billy told me to buy a particular painting. I didn’t like it, but he said it would be a good investment, so, I bought it, paying $1.000. I stuck it in a closet when I got home and forgot it. Some years later, the gallery owner called me, asking if I would consider selling it. I smelled a profit. Painfully telling the gallery owner how hard I would find in parting with the painting, he offered me $10.000. I continued to lament the thought of parting it with, but told him I would do so.” Lemmon shook his head. “Now how in the hell did Billy know that painting would be such a good investment?” Lemmon reckoned it was pure genius. The man who escaped the Nazis in 1933, coming to America knowing less than 100 words of English indeed was truly a genius of canvas and film.
The money raised during that Saturday night banquet in the hotel’s ballroom went to the San Diego State University’s new film editing facility. Years later I received a call from a university official to ask if I would get in touch with Wilder, inviting him to come to the editing facility’s opening. I still had his home phone number. After dialing the number, a heavy German accent answered. When I identified myself, asking if he remembered me, the reply was: “Of course, Tom. Say, do you have any more of those great cigars?” He might not have remembered my face, but he remembered my taste in good cigars. Billy Wilder died March 27, 2002, at the age of 95. Taking his sense of humor to the grave, the epitaph on his tombstone is the final line from “Some Like It Hot.” The stone is engraved: “Billy Wilder, I’m a writer, but then nobody’s perfect.”
“My boy, never pass up a chance to sit at the feet of greatness,” was Lemmon’s response.
We met out on the Promenade deck on a bright Sunday morning. Wilder was sitting at a table sipping a cup of coffee and smoking a

prospective reintroduction of such extinct species as the Tasmanian Tiger and wooly mammoth.
Gathering material for a frozen zoo is simplified by the abundance of sperm in males, which can be harvested after the animal has died. The production of eggs, which in females is usually low, can be increased through hormone treatment, depending on the species. Some frozen zoos prefer to fertilize eggs and freeze the resulting embryo, as embryos are more resilient under the cryopreservation process. Some centers also collect skin cell samples of endangered animals or extinct species. In a major breakthrough, The Scripps Research Institute in San Diego has successfully cultured skin cells inducing special pluripotent stem cells making it theoretically possible to reap sperm and eggs from these cells. The Frozen Zoo at the San Diego Zoo's Institute for Conservation Research currently stores a collection of 8,400 samples from over 800 species Social Butterfly Cont. from Page 8

While there are many possibilities for reproducing longextinct and not so friendly animals, so far the effort has been limited to the Sharjah, the extremely endangered Gordon’s wildcat and the Arabian leopard, of which there are only 50 in the wild. Both species were successfully impregnated using this method, and to prove the worth of the common house cat, the Audubon Center for Research of Endangered Species in 2000 implanted a frozen-thawed embryo from the highly-endangered African wildcat into the uterus of Fluffy, resulting in a healthy male wildcat!

But, this technique still needs much work, though experimentation on stored genetic material allows for the fostering of genetic improvements and the prevention of inbreeding in current herds of cats and ungulates.
And while modern technology allows for genetic manipulation in animals without the need for their capture, the success of their restoration into the wild requires the application of new science, plus a sufficient amount of previously collected material, which is a real problem.

EAP Municipal Gallery to Hold Gala Art Auction Panache – The Escondido Arts Partnership is hosting its highly anticipated art auction fundraiser “Panache,” an annual celebration of art at the Escondido Municipal Gallery on Saturday, March 23rd. “Panache” celebrates the work of artist Niki de Saint Phalle as well as award winning San Diego artists. An evening gala including silent and live art auctions with auctioneer Eric Lehew, a hosted bar with local beer and wine and lavish appetizers.

S.D. Foundation Announces Opening of the Outdoors Grant Cycle - The San Diego Foundation today announced the
availability of grant funding through the Opening the Outdoors Program. The 2019 grant cycle will prioritize nonprofit projects that protect and connect outdoor spaces and improve access to nature, especially for the San Diego region’s most park-poor and underserved communities. As indicated by the regional park finder tool, Get Outside San Diego, there are more than 1,100 parks within our region, highlighting the many opportunities to access the spectacular natural amenities in San Diego County. However, according to The San Diego Foundation Parks for Everyone report, many low-income, ethnically diverse communities have limited access to parks and open spaces. The Opening the Outdoors program serves to close this gap and invest in long-term solutions that ensure all San Diego youth grow up with equitable access to nature and the outdoors. To be considered for the 2019 grant cycle, eligible organizations must send a Letter of Interest by March 6 for projects ranging from $25,000 to $65,000 that address at least one of the following goals: 1. Create and sustain new natural amenities in lowincome communities where access to green space is most limited, as defined in resources such as the Parks for Everyone report and Parks for All Californians. 2. Build community support for timely public policies or funding measures that will significantly expand more equitable access to green space in communities with greatest needs. 3. Implement programs that create recurring opportunities for youth from communities with low park access to positively engage in nature. For more information about The San Diego Foundation Opening the Outdoors Program, or to apply for one of the available grants, visit www.sdfoundation.org/OTO.

Woman’s Club of Vista Shares Their 2018 Successes and 2019 Plans – The Woman’s Club of Vista GFWC recentlycompleted reports show that members of that club worked many hours as volunteers and philanthropists at non-profit organizations in North County to improve their communities, and the total for 2018 is 10,700 hours of volunteering by their 47 members.

Projects include baby showers, crocheting blankets, collecting supplies for schools, selling Moonlight Opportunity tickets, and collecting gently-used baby clothes. Members enjoy donating personally to Heifer International, collecting over $4,000 in 2018. This project is promoted by the Club President Judy Pantazo.

The Pastor Says . . .
For many, the season is focused on the question, “What did you give up for Lent?” You may have sacrificed coffee or candy or beer or some other “luxury,” perhaps even Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.
Pastor Tom Fry (Retired) Church of the Nazarene
Oscar is a 9-year-old American Pit Bull Terrier mix looking for a caring home. He is a shy fellow who will need a patient family who understands how to go slowly and help Oscar learn to be a great family member. Oscar was found as a stray, so we don’t know a lot about his history. But we have noticed that with a little time, he can be a friendly and playful boy. Oscar has some issues with his skin and ears, so he will require a consultation with a veterinarian prior to his adoption. Additionally, Oscar’s adoption fee has already been paid by someone who wanted to help him find the home he deserves! His (waived) adoption fee includes his neuter, permanent microchip identification, current vaccinations, 30 days worry free insurance from Trupanion Insurance and a certificate for a free veterinary exam! Oscar is available for adoption at San Diego Humane Society’s Escondido Campus at 3500 Burnet Drive. To learn more about making him part of your family, please call (619) 299-7012.

In just a few days, on March 6, the Christian Season of Lent will begin. There are different ways of counting the days, but the season lasts 40 days and concludes during Holy Week, depending on how the days are counted. The original purpose of Lent was a time of instruction, introspection and spiritual discipline, for converts to Christianity leading to their baptism into the faith on Easter.
Today, Christians focus on their relationship with God through a concentrated time of self examination, reflection, repentance and fasting in preparation for the coming of Easter. The 40 days of Lent are a reminder of the 40 days Jesus spent in the wilderness and was tempted by Satan.
Lately, people have been “giving up by giving away.” They give up something tangible that they can share with someone else. A friend collected paperback mysteries by a favorite author. It took years to get a complete collection. Then, one year, he sold the entire collection to help a missionary begin a work overseas.
For the past two years, I have purged my closet. You don’t need nearly as many clothes in retirement. The first year it was easy to part with 40 pieces of clothing, the second year a little tougher. This year will be challenging, but I am committed to doing it. My wife says it can be done just with ball caps and T Shirts from various events.
I give the clothes to an organization that helps men overcome addictions, get back on their feet and find employment. I like to think some of my neckties have helped a deserving gentleman get a job One piece of clothing each day for 40 days. Give up by giving away. It’s a great way to celebrate Lent.

San Marcos • Mayor Rebecca Jones
S an Marcos Mayor delivers her inaugural State
of the City Address
San Marcos, CA –On Tuesday, Feb. 26 as part of the San Marcos Chamber of Commerce’s Business Awards, I had the honor of presenting my inaugural State of the City Address,
After serving for more than a decade on the San Marcos City Council, it is with tremendous pride that I and your city council have the opportunity to reflect back on our community’s progress, and to set the tone for the coming year,
Presented at California State University San Marcos to an audience packed with leaders, entrepreneurs, non-profits, local businesses, residents and others devoted to San Marcos, the address outlined progress in the areas of public safety,
economic and community development, traffic and transportation, and other quality of life issues.
By embracing the hometown qualities that attract young families, celebrating education, welcoming business and partnering with our community, our city is transitioning from a “drive-through” community to a “drive –to” destination. The priorities of the city are safety, economic development, and ensuring future generations experience the same quality of life or better that residents enjoy today.”
The 2019 State of the City Address will be rebroadcast on San Marcos TV during the month of March on Cox Communications Channel 19, Timer Warner Cable Channel 24, AT&T U-Verse Channel.
Escondido • Mayor Paul “Mac” McNamara Greetings Escondido!
I had my first “Meet the Mayor” this week at Cute Cakes on Grand Avenue. Thank you CC for hosting. We had about 30 people attend and it was a very open forum.
Some of the comments were issues that related to a city service e.g. an abandoned car in a neighborhood. We took notes and passed them on to the appropriate city staff. As a quick note, I want to remind folks that the city website has a way to regis-

In March, the Club will present “Women of Achievement” to honor women in our community. This new event will be held at the Vista Historical Society and will include food, vendors, and raffle baskets. Tickets are available at email@example.com. The Club is also looking forward to Donation Day on May 8 when local non-profits will receive donations from the Club. Members will nominate an organization that will send a representative to share a celebration luncheon, accept the award, share about their organization’s work, and tell how the donation will be used. This year, the Club will award $12,000 in scholarships to students at six local high schools who will be recognized at the Club’s June 12 meeting. Students share their school experiences and where they plan to attend school. The Club’s Night Owls group meets the first Wednesday of the month at 6pm at Thai One On.

But most of the comments were part of a larger discussion as to which direction the city should go in. I felt like we were all neighbors talking about our neighborhood. I really enjoyed it and as you can imagine some great ideas were presented. I would encourage you to attend next month’s meeting at Interfaith. Semper Fi, Mac

Paul & Nome Van Middlesworth, The Computer Factory

Do you really even need a PC?
90% of American homes have at least one PC (desktop or notebook) and nearly all of them are connected to the Internet. Most are connected through a traditional broadband service; some use cell phone service and a few still use dial-up. Smart phones today outsell PCs by a margin of five to one, but, the average lifespan of a smart phone is less than two years while the average age of a home based notebook or desk PC is over six years. Almost everything you do on the Internet can be done on a smart phone or tablet. It’s even possible to perform most traditional stand- alone (off line) activ-

stant failures to befriend him, his coworkers smiled at me and told me "don't feel bad, everybody's tried to be his friend but most everyone has failed." Seems everyone wants to have him as a friend and at first I just thought he was arrogant but I found the exact opposite to be true. They told me he's always helping the homeless or some charity like the Rady's Children's Hospital.
As a first-time writer, I have to say I love Tom Morrow's column. He's amazing and has very interesting topics from the short time I've become a reader. If I'm not mistaken, this is the same Tom Morrow who used to write for the old North County Times Newspaper. If so, he hasn't lost his touch. Best wishes for everyone here at your paper. San Marcos resident, Mr. Tee Teerayut.
Editor’s Note: You are correct, Tom Morrow formerly wrote for the North County Times as well as the Blade Tribune and many other publications; in addition, he’s a noted author with several great novels to his credit,
While you might be able to do just about everything using the miniscule touchpad and eyesquinting 7 inch screen on your smart phone, wouldn’t you rather sit in a comfortable chair with a full size keyboard, a friendly mouse and a giant screen while you browse the web, watch a video, check your bank statement, shop Amazon or Email your sister? Sure you would.
Having a home PC (desktop or notebook) hooked up with a friendly mouse, keyboard and decent sized monitor is more than a convenience; it’s a necessity for most of us. A home Internet workstation doesn’t need to take up a lot of space or cost a lot of money. We can provide a perfectly adequate home “refurb” Internet workstation fully equipped for as little as $150. It will have an office suite, antivirus and cruise the Internet just as fast as any other PC. Having a spare Internet workstation can also come in handy when guests and relatives ask to use your PC. Another cool home PC alternative is the AIO (all in one). If cords and cables drive you nuts this is the answer. With built in WiFi and Blue Tooth and a wireless key-
board/mouse, the only wire you need is the power cable to the house current. We have a full range of performance in these 22 and 24 inch beauties with your choice of Windows 7 or 10 They are priced from under $300 to the just over $500. Last week a customer traded in an almost new Dell AIO (all-in-one) with Windows 10 for a 5 year old Windows7 Dell “corporate refurb.” The five year old “corporate” Dell was more than twice as fast as the “retail” PC trade-in, of better quality and had the Windows 7 that he preferred. Dell, HP and others sell brand new “bargain” PCs in retail stores like Best Buy, Costco, etc, that are actually slower than PCs they sold 10 years ago. They do it in recog-
nition of the fact that the relatively unsophisticated shoppers who buy the low end retail PCs are primarily interested in using them to connect to the Internet where speed simply doesn’t matter. It only becomes a problem when users attempt stand- alone or offline tasks where speed may be very important. So buyer beware, those bargain priced Dell or HP PCs featured at your local Big Box store may actually be slower than the old PC you are replacing.
Stop in and talk to us before you make your next PC purchase decision. We should be able to help you be sure you get exactly what you need and save you some money in the bargain.
