Research leads one into interesting highways and byways of life. Recently, while exploring old military and historical records I stumbled across a headline in the New York Times dated September 6, 2013:

Rochus Misch, Bodyguard of Hitler, Dies at 96

Rochus Misch, Hitler’s wartime bodyguard, who was widely described as the last living witness to the Führer’s final days in his underground bunker as the Soviet Army closed in on Berlin, died in that city on Thursday, September 5, 2013. He was 96.

Burkhard Nachtigall, the co-author of Mr. Misch’s memoir, “Der Letzte Zeuge” (“The Last Witness”), published in German in 2008, confirmed the death to The Associated Press.

Curious, I looked further and came across a fascinating article that was a recent interview with Mr. Miscsh, shortly before his passing.

"Adolf Hitler's skull went on display in Moscow recently showing the bullet hole where, 55 years ago, he shot himself. Rochus Misch, a member of the Fuhrer's personal staff, witnessed the suicide. He tells his story, for the first time, to SIMON FINCH. It looks like any children's sandpit, surrounded by the building sites of 21st Century Berlin. But for the old man at my side, this deserted playground on the edge of Potsdammer Platz has a very different resonance.

Rochus Misch has paced out the distance - 140m from Zimmerstrasse and 90m from Wilhelmstrasse. Here, he says, was the garden of the German Chancellery, in whose bombcratered morass Hitler's impromptu funeral pyre was lit. And just here, beneath this building site, was the place Misch had spent his war: Hitler's underground bunker, the concrete heart of the Third Reich, where the Fuhrer took The Paper - 760.747.7119

his own life as his dreams were ground beneath the Allied advance.

"Everyone was waiting for the shot. We were expecting it. I had just said to the technicians, 'I am going over (to Hitler's office), can I fetch you anything?' And they said no. Then came the shot. I was just six metres away from him

when he did it.

"Linge (Hitler's valet) took me to one side and we went in, just after the shot. I saw Hitler slumped by the table. I did not see any blood on his head. And I saw Eva with her knees drawn up lying next to him on the sofa - wearing a white and blue blouse, with a little collar: just a little thing. I was just a

For five years, Rochus Misch was a member of Hitler's personal staff, living in Hitler's bunker; he finished the war as Chief of Communications, in charge of the bunker switchboard. It was 55 years ago on April 30, 1945, when Russian troops were closing in, that he heard that shot. Hitler's skull, the bullet hole clearly visible, went on display in Moscow for the first time recently - part of the "Agony of the Third Reich: Retribution" exhibition organised by the Russian State archives to mark the anniversary of the Russian conquest of Berlin.

"After the shot, it all happened very quickly. The door was opened, then closed again, then someone else came, then the blankets were brought in. I ran away, then I came back. I wanted to tell my boss that the Fuhrer was dead - I wanted to make a report, but just after I left the front bunker I ran back. It all happened in seconds. Not minutes, seconds. Then some other people came and they wrapped the bodies up in the blankets. They took Hitler out of the

Give Us This Day Our Daily Chuckle This week, a compendium of wit, wisdom and neat stuff you can tell at parties. Enjoy! The Scottish Cow

The only cow in a small town in Ireland stopped giving milk. Then the town folk found they could buy a cow in Scotland quite cheaply. So, they brought the cow over from Scotland. It was absolutely wonderful, it produced lots of milk every day and everyone was happy.

They bought a bull to mate with the cow to get more cows, so they'd never have to worry about their milk supply again. They put the bull in the pasture with the cow but whenever the bull tried to mount the cow, the cow would move away.

phone - all that was done from there. It was 120050 - that was the telephone number of the bunker and Hitler's living quarters. That day, I said it loudly on the telephone on purpose, just to break the silence. Everyone was walking quietly by. People were whispering - it was deathly silent down there. It was a coffin for the dead, a concrete coffin.

"The last time I saw Hitler alive he walked out into the corridor and along to the machine room past me, and we looked at each other. He was a broken man, quite hunched up, like a dead man. I do not think it was hard for him to die.

"And then my room, relax, tele-

"We had always been waiting for it, we just did not know when it would happen. It all went wrong from one day to the next. One adjutant told Hitler

Misch's descriptions of the last days of the Reich have a hauntingly intimate intensity. Hitler's bunker, after all, was not a large place. Misch describes it as 15m long, with very small rooms. Hitler's study, sitting room and bedroom on one side; on the other, the bedroom of Eva Braun, Hitler's mistress whom he married in those last hours. No matter what approach the bull tried, the cow would move away from the bull, and he was never able to do the deed.

The people were very upset and decided to go to the vet, who was very wise, tell him what was happening and ask his advice. "Whenever the bull tries to mount our cow, she moves away. If he approaches from the back, she moves forward. When he approaches her from the front, she backs off. If he attempts it from the one side, she walks away to the other side." The vet rubbed his chin thoughtfully and pondered this before asking, "Did you by chance, buy this cow in Scotland?" The people were dumbfounded, since no one had ever mentioned that they had brought the cow over from Scotland. "You are truly a wise vet," they said. "How did you know we got the cow from Scotland? The vet replied with a distant look in his eye: "My wife is from Scotland " Diary of a Snow Shoveler

wife`s hometown in Minnesota. He was born and raised in Tyler, Tx. December 8 - 6:00 PM It started to snow. The first snow of the season and the wife and I took our cocktails and sat for hours by the window watching the huge soft flakes drift down from heaven. It looked like a Grandma Moses Print. So romantic we felt like newlyweds again. I love snow! December 9 We woke to a beautiful blanket of crystal white snow covering every inch of the landscape. What a fantastic sight! Can there be a more lovely place in the whole world? Moving here was the best idea I've ever had! Shoveled for the first time in years and felt like a boy again. I did both our driveway and the sidewalks. This afternoon the snowplow came along and covered up the sidewalks and closed in the driveway, so I got to shovel again. What a perfect life!

December 12 The sun has melted all our lovely snow. Such a disappointment! My neighbor tells me not to worry- we'll definitely have a white Christmas. No snow on Christmas would be awful! Bob says we'll have so much snow by the end of winter, that

he was leaving and Hitler said to the others 'What am I doing wrong? An adjutant has announced his departure. He wants to leave. Why are people running away from me?' And a secretary said, 'Mein Fuhrer, you are doing nothing wrong. But the adjutants here are front-line soldiers. They want to go back to the front. They do not want to just walk about here in their patent leather shoes'." After the bodies of Hitler and Braun had been removed, the afternoon continued in a crescendo of the macabre. Into Misch's office came Magda, wife of the propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels, with her six children: she had decided the whole family should die together.

"The children were prepared for their deaths in my work room. Their mother combed their hair - they were all dressed in white night shirts and then she went up with the children. There were kitchen workers and secretaries who went down on their knees to Magda and cried for the children - they said they would look after them." But all six were

I'll never want to see snow again. I don't think that's possible. Bob is such a nice man, I'm glad he's our neighbor.

December 14 Snow, lovely snow! 8 inches last night. The temperature dropped to -20. The cold makes everything sparkle so. The wind took my breath away, but I warmed up by shoveling the driveway and sidewalks. This is the life! The snowplough came back this afternoon and buried everything again. I didn't realize I would have to do quite this much shoveling, but I'll certainly get back in shape this way. I wish I wouldn't huff and puff so.

December 15 20 inches forecast. Sold my van and bought a 4x4 Blazer. Bought snow tires for the wife's car and 2 extra shovels. Stocked the freezer. The wife wants a wood stove in case the electricity goes out. I think that's silly. We aren't in Alaska, after all.

December 16 Ice storm this morning. Fell on my ass on the ice in the driveway putting down salt. Hurt like hell. The wife laughed for an hour, which I think was very cruel.

poisoned. "After the children were dead, Magda came down again, walked past me, and sat down at a table two metres away and started playing patience, she started laying down cards. She was crying." Misch, fearing his own death was imminent, wanted to leave the bunker. "I kept saying to Goebbels, 'I want to go. I want to go away to meet my comrades.' But he said to me, 'There are still telephone calls to make.' "There were still people there -

Rochus Misch in his younger years

General Krebs [Army Chief of Staff], General Burgdoff [Chief Adjutant], Martin Bormann [Hitler's deputy] - they were all still there and the telephone lines had to work. We were still receiving phone calls - we were negotiating with the Russians, there were civilians who phoned us up, who knew our number. I still had to carry out my duty."

But eventually even the propaganda minister accepted the inevitable. Goebbels said to me, "We understand how to live, so we also understand how to die. You can stop now." Then I dealt with my things. I took out all the cables, all the connections.

Joseph and Magda Goebbels committed suicide and Misch finally fled from the bunker, but a day later he was captured by the Russians. When the authorities realised who he was, he was sent, on Stalin's orders, to Moscow. The Russian leader could not accept that his rival was finally dead.

"They thought what I had described was not true. 'What if the body you saw was someone else?' 'But it was not someone else, no one else came in.' 'Ah,

you are lying, you are lying', always the same. I knew Hitler for five years, I saw him two or three hours before his death and no one else came in."

Misch and the other witnesses to Hitler's last days were ordered to be tortured as Stalin's paranoia raged. "They stripped me and then they whipped my testicles and I lost consciousness. I lost a lot of blood. After a while I ceased to be a human being. I despaired of life, of everything that had happened. There was no heating in the basement, even the urine was frozen. I was laid on an iron bed without a blanket, without anything, nothing. That is why I wrote to Beria [Stalin's head of secret police] that I wanted to be shot, because I could not go on."

To test the statements of their German prisoners, the Russian authorities staged a reconstruction of Hitler's suicide and the burning of his corpse, complete with the original eyewitnesses. The "Reich Chancellery Group" was assembled, bundled onto a train, and then onto a plane bound for Germany. A disoriented Misch looked on as the re-enactment took place. But if the Charade finally satisfied the Soviets that their prisoners were telling the truth, it now suited Stalin to keep the mystery over Hitler's death alive. Misch was flown back to the Soviet Union, where he was sent to the Gulags.

"There was order in the prison camps, I have to admit that. We were given our food, one was simply a prisoner. I was mostly in the so-called 'regime camps' where they held people such as the atomic physicists, the people who had taught in the university in Moscow.

"You had to survive on hope. You had to live on very little little food, little sleep; but it was better for us than for much of the population of Russia. We had our 600 or 400 grams of bread per day - the Russian people did not always have that."

After Stalin's death in 1953, Misch was released under Khrushchev's general amnesty and sent back to East Germany. There he lived a life of quiet anonymity with his wife Gerda and their daughter Birgitta, who had been born during the war (Eva Braun

had given them a pushchair back in the days of the Reich). Together, they ran a small home-decorating shop.

It was just by chance that Rochus Misch had so unusual a war. A member of the SS Leibstandarte elite guards, he was wounded during the invasion of Poland in 1939. "That was a lucky break for me because it was through my injury that I came to work for Hitler." Still in his early twenties, Misch was taken out of active service and, following a recommendation from one of his commanding officers, was summoned to the Reich Chancellery.

"The head adjutant interviewed me. He had to know who would be living in Hitler's apartment. Then he stood up and went to the door. And who was standing behind the door? Hitler. I got in a state, freezing cold one moment, hot the next. We were one metre apart. He had been listening to the interview behind the door. "Hitler asked where I came from and I said, 'Mein Fuhrer, I come,' - in the meantime I had composed myself a little - 'I come from Upper Silesia.' He asked, 'Do we have any Silesians here?' and the head adjutant said, 'I do not know, I do not know.' Hitler went on, 'Well, the young man can do something for me straight away.' And he gave me a letter and said, 'Please take this to my sister Paula in Vienna.' " It was May 1940. This was Misch's first task as one of the Fuhrer-Begleitung (Hitler's personal staff). Until this promotion, Misch had been living obscurely in an army barracks and at first this new position left him awestruck. "Hitler was acclaimed, celebrated everywhere. This was the Fuhrer. I was scared. But after 10 days or so I got used to the fact that Hitler was a human being, like any other. Then he was no longer the great Fuhrer, but simply 'the boss'. "He was a very good boss, very loyal. We who were closest to him tried to carry out our duties properly. We were bodyguards, telephonists, whatever; we did everything that would have to be done for the head of any firm, whoever he may be. There is nothing to complain about when you have such a boss. He always asked how we all were. Those who claim Hitler was not interested in ordinary people are talking nonsense." •••••

A few months ago, builders digging the foundations for a new government office block next to the sandpit on the edge of Potsdammer Platz accidentally exposed part of the bunker roof. It rekindled a debate: should the bunker be left buried, destroyed, or maintained as a museum? Despite a substantial lobby, running the gamut from archaeologists and historians to Holocaust campaigners and the inevitable neo-Nazi groups, the Berlin authorities decided to rebury their past. Misch, however, believes the bunker should have been excavated. "It should be preserved for the sake of history. This is where the Nazi era happened and where Hitler died. It was a momentous event. It should be kept for the world to see."

The latest scholarship suggests that by the end of 1942, a large percentage of the German population knew that the "Jewish problem" - as Nazi ideology had it - had been radically solved and millions put to death. Coming to terms with Hitler's crimes and the Holocaust has been a struggle for the German people; for Misch, it has been harder than for most.

To him, Hitler was not just a distant leader. He was the kind boss who joked with his staff; the film buff who loved Charlie Chaplin and watched "Gone With The Wind" three times. The man who always said that he was too busy for a wife and yet, Misch believes, married Eva Braun the day before their deaths so that "he took her to the grave as a married woman solely out of consideration for her parents." And for Misch, this dichotomy is made more extraordinary by the fact that, despite being at the heart of Hitler's operation, he insists he never heard any talk of the mass murder of Jews.

"How could we fail to find this out - my God, we knew nearly everything that was going on us in the inner circle - we were always there, day and night. We saw Hitler in his nightshirt. We received the dispatches and brought them to Hitler to read. He would have them under his arm and tear out a report and hand it to me, and I would get rid of it in a waste-paper basket. There was never anything on this subject." And yet, he does not deny the Holocaust happened. "Yes, it

Council Vote Influenced by Political Donations?

On December 4, 2013, the City Council granted a reduction in the developer fees involved with Pacific Land Investments proposal for the North Broadway Deficiency Area. The reduction in fees was from $17,000 per lot to $12,500 per lot. Council Member John Masson called the attorney for Pacific Land, Dave Ferguson, back to the speaker’s podium to make sure that the reduction to $12,500 was substantial enough. After hearing that the discount was fine, the council voted to grant the new fees. Council member Masson’s FPPC 460 Campaign Contribution reports that Pacific Land Investments donated $2050 to the Masson Campaign on 11/19/2013 and another $2050 on 12/12/2013. The exact same contributions were made to Mayor Sam Abed’s campaign.

Local News

Don Greene, a formeR candidaTe for City Council says: “It appears Pacific Land Investments essentially bought the vote for a reduction in developer fees,” said Don Greene, President of Escondido Democrats. “While not illegal,” he continued, “this kind of payto-play activity is highly unethical and should not be allowed in our City Hall. The council is elected to do their best for the City of Escondido, and reducing developer fees, thereby reducing money paid to the city, is not in Escondido’s best interest; although, it would seem that from the contributions to their campaigns, it was in Council Member Masson’s and Mayor Abed’s best interest.” Carlsbad Police Arrest Burglary Suspect

His column will deal with most anything he wants to write about, but I suspect the bulk of them will be about the political and social scene of North San Diego County, analyzing the movers and shakers in both worlds, and allowing us into his mind on political activities and issues as they arrive.

NOTICE OF INTENT TO CIRCULATE PETITION

Notice is hereby given by the person whose name appears here of their intention to circulate the petition within the City of Escondido. A statement of the reasons of the proposed action as contemplated in the petition is as follows: To obtain a sufficient amount of signatures of registered voted in the City of Escondido to have an initiative presented to the votes of the City of Escondido that would mandate that any vacancy of the City of Escondido City Council would be filled by special election when more than 480 days remain on the unexpired term. Dated: January 15, 2014 at Escondido, CA. E. Clarke Dailey Proponent 1204 North Escondido Blvd Apartment A31 Escondido, CA 92026

INITIATIVE MEASURE TO BE SUBMITTED DIRECTLY TO THE VOTERS

The City Attorney has prepared the following title and summary of the chief purpose and points of the proposed measure: AN INITIATIVE MEASURE REQUIRING AN ELECTION TO FILL CERTAIN CITY COUNCIL VACANCIES

California law provides generally that when there is a vacancy in a city council position, the vacancy can be filled either by appointment or by calling a special election. This initiative proposes an ordinance that requires all vacancies on the City Council to be filled by special election, so long as the remaining unexpired term has greater than 480 days (approximately one year and four months) remaining. If the unexpired term has less than 480 days remaining, the proposed ordinance requires the vacancy to be filled by appointment of the City Council. In circumstances where a special election is required, the proposed ordinance permits the City Council to appoint an interim member to serve until the elected member is sworn in. Interim appointees would be paid the base salary of an elected member and receive reimbursements. The proposed ordinance requires any such interim appointee to the City Council to be a resident of the District he or she represents as of the date the vacancy occurred. In the case of the Mayor, the proposed ordinance requires any such appointee to be a resident of the City of Escondido. PD: 02/06/2014

conducting a council meeting while intoxicated and interference with police activities. A tape recording of activities made by an alert police officer helped persuade radio station KOWN and the thenEscondido Times Advocate to support the call for his recall. (KOWN won an Associated Press Award for “The Straw the Broke the Camel’s Back,” an in depth documentary covering the Mason affair.) A large and strong group of angry citizens came together and recalled Mason from office.

They felt evidence existed to show Mason had committed egregious acts against the city, its police officers and other city staff.

No such egregious act(s) have been alleged or committed by Olga Diaz. She is a hard working, dedicated councilmember.

We recommend you NOT sign the petition and we hope that it does NOT qualify to appear on the ballot. We have more important matters to attend to in North County and in Escondido. The idea of a recall of Olga Diaz is totally without merit and is simply ridiculous.

At first detailed to Los Angeles, Couts, who was a qualified surveyor, later traveled to San Diego to assist joint Mexican and American efforts to survey a new boundary line between Upper (Alta) and Lower (Baja) California. Unlike a fellow newcomer, who referred to the Old Town settlement as a "miserable Mexican town," Couts liked what he saw and decided to remain. In 1851 he resigned his commission from the army and married Ysidora Bandini, the daughter of a prosperous local businessman. Couts established himself on the large Rancho Guajome, a wedding gift, and took up the life of a family man, ranchero and civic leader. In short, like many other Americans who came to California, Couts saw an opportunity for a fresh start and a chance to realize his ambitions. Cave Couts is well known to San Diego historians as a result of his meticulous care in recording and preserving nearly every aspect of his life in voluminous diaries, notebooks, and letters. At present the greatest portion of this resource material is housed at the Henry E. Huntington Library in San Marino,

California. Together with the papers of his son, Cave Jr., these make up a collection of manuscripts of some 16,000 pieces. Out of this number two diaries are best recognized. Couts completed his first diary within a six month span between 1848 and 1849. This was a narrative of his overland march under the command of Maj. Lawrence P. Graham from Monterrey, Mexico, to Los Angeles, where he began his tour of occupation duty in Southern California. Published by the Arizona Pioneers'

and Maps of Cave J. Couts.” In the interval between these two events, Couts spent several months in San Diego -- initially at Mission San Luis Rey and then in Old Town.

The significance of this portion of Couts' diary to San Diego history can be appreciated when it is compared to the other primary accounts written in 1849.

The life of Cave Couts reads like a novel or an adventuresome movie. In early North San Diego County history, he was one of the most important citizens, and certainly one of the most interesting to live in

According to San Diego County historical files, Couts was “over six feet tall, perfectly straight, and weighed 165 pounds.” He was “a man of good education, strict integrity, and gentlemanly manners.” Yet he had his detractors who would have challenged descriptions such “strict integrity” and “gentlemanly.” Couts was an enigma.

prets the life of this important San Diego pioneer, the real Cave Couts probably will never be known. It’s surprising some Hollywood producer hasn’t grabbed on to his story for a good period piece. After his death in 1874, Couts’ widow, Ysidora, continued to live on at Rancho Guajome and manage it until her death. There were 10 children of whom nine lived to maturity.

Some diaries and journals from others survive today. For example, the written observations of an obscure artist, H. M. T. Powell, who remained in Old Town for a short time, made sketches "of San Diego from Fort Stockton," and sold them to a variety of people, including Couts.

happened, but I cannot imagine it. I cannot imagine Hitler as a murderer. It is simply impossible. He was so friendly, nice. "If I met him today, I would say, 'Mein Fuhrer, I did not really get to know you that well. For five years we could look each other straight in the eye and smile and ... all these things that have been written about, where did that all come from? I never knew you to be like that, Mein Fuhrer'." (c) The Telegraph Group Limited, London, 2000

Such men as John W. Audubon, youngest son of the well-known ornithologist, however, were in a greater hurry to reach the gold fields and stayed only long enough "to get provisions ready for the company" and chronicle a few brief remarks on the "beautiful" bay and the "once, evidently, beau-

Pooh Bear is the pet of the week at your Rancho Coastal Humane Society. He’s a 3-1/2 year old, 35 pound, neutered, male, Chow Chow / Corgi mix.

Pooh Bear is kind of a show-off. He knows “Sit, Down, Shake, and Up.” Tell Pooh Bear “Up” and he dances on his hind legs. He’s very friendly and he gets along with everybody he meets.

Pooh Bear was surrendered to RCHS when his owner could no longer care for him. The $145 adoption fee for Pooh Bear includes up to date vaccines, veterinary exam, neuter, and microchip. If you can't adopt now, consider sponsoring a pet until it’s adopted. Meet your new cat, dog, or rabbit at Rancho Coastal Humane Society, 389 Requeza Street in Encinitas. Adoption hours are 11 to 5 Wednesday through Monday. For more information call 760753-6413.

Buffy is an 8-year-old spayed female pit bull mix, ID 74584. Buffy is rarely seen without a huge smile on her face, which makes it impossible for those around her not to smile as well. She's goofy, easy-going and likes everyone she meets. She loves to roll in the grass, and though she's 68 pounds, she believes she's a lap dog. She is on a special diet to prevent her from getting dry, itchy skin, and the shelter would like her new family to keep her on that diet because it seems to be doing wonders for her coat. Buffy is available for adoption at the Escondido Humane Society, 3450 E. Valley Parkway. Her $55 adoption fee includes spay, microchip and vet exam. For more information, call (760) 888-2247 or log on to www.escondidohumanesociety.org. The Escondido Humane Society Adoption Center is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. seven days a week.

Happy Valentine’s Day

Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, and now, Happy Valentine’s Day. Notice that such a greeting is a positive affirmation. We project an expression of desire in such a greeting. The first two are obvious in their intent, but the third needs some exposition. Where did Valentine’s Day originate and what does it mean? For most of us, it carries a load of expectation. In fact, next to Christmas, it is the biggest commercial day of the year. People spend millions of dollars on cards, candy, flowers, meals and gifts, all as expressions of love. Women, especially, want to be remem-

Where does it all start and why is it so important? Though murky in history, the belief is that there was this saint, Valentine, who lived in the 3rd century AD and demonstrated a special romantic love. The early church connected him to a Roman holiday honoring the god, Lupercalia, a god of fertility and spring, hoping to gain converts. Thus was born a tradition which blossomed to its fullness in the 1800s.

We have taken this day to emphasize our love in a special way. While it is wonderful to have a special day for love ,we human beings need and want love every day of the year. It is this kind of love that our world needs. It is a many splendored thing best illustrated in the life and ministry of Jesus, the Christ, not only one day in the year nor connected to a pagan holiday, but rather in His words, “No greater love has anyone than one who lays down his life for another.” This is the ultimate definition of love.

We need your help keeping our city free from graffiti, our street lights on, and our roads free from potholes.

A new hotline has been established to report these issues. Call the hotline at 760.639.6177 any time you notice graffiti, see a street light out, or observe a pothole. Your help is greatly appreciated. Last year, over 4,213 potholes were repaired and over 67,000 square feet of graffiti removed. The graffiti on public property is removed within 48 hours of notification. City crews prioritize pothole repairs based on location; most are

I think she's a, idiot. If I have to watch "It's A Wonderful Life" one more time, I'm going to stuff her into the microwave.

December 26 Still snowed in. Why the hell did I ever move here? It was all HER idea. She's really getting on my nerves.

Besides keeping our city beautiful and graffiti free - did you know the City manages over 316 miles of sewer collection pipes? In 2013 over 8 miles of public sewer lines were replaced and 290 miles of sewer lines were cleaned.

Please help the Public Works Department and yourself from clogged pipes and expensive repairs by not flushing the “disposable or flushable” wipes down the toilet. These products don’t dissolve and can create costly repairs to homeowners and clog the public sewer pipes leading to sewer backups. Vista has joined many other cities in asking residents to “can the wipes.”

San Marcos • Mayor Jim Desmond

New traffic signal to be activated at Grand Avenue and San Marcos Boulevard Intersection

Traffic delays expected in this area

The activation of a new traffic signal at the intersection of Grand Avenue and Creekside Marketplace (adjacent to the Shell Gas Station) is tentatively scheduled for Monday, February 10 between 9 am and 12 pm.

Motorists who travel in the vicinity of the San Marcos Boulevard/Grand Avenue intersection, and within the adjacent Creekside Marketplace are

advised that westbound U-turns on San Marcos Boulevard at this intersection will be prohibited once the signal is activated.

Throughout the project period, the City will place electronic message signs on San Marcos Boulevard in both east and west directions to alert motorists of the new traffic signal.

The new signal will significantly improve traffic operations and vehicular flow in and out of the Creekside Marketplace by providing additional signalized access. By restricting westbound U-turn movements at the intersection of Grand Avenue and San Marcos Boulevard, existing traffic delays will be reduced.

Basketball in California?

We both grew up in rural Indiana, the heart of basketball country. Basketball was king. Small town schools couldn’t afford to field football teams so the focus was always on the basketball program. The town folk and the farmers from the fields around filled the high school gym on Friday nights. Not just the students and parents, everybody came, men and women young and old. The basketball team belonged to the town and countryside. These Hoosiers were basketball purists; it was all about the game. When a player made a great play cheers came from both sides of the gym. When a referee blew a call, heads shook on both sides. During basketball season the conversation around the gas pump, grocery store and café was basketball. It wasn’t all

California Asks Congress to Extend Unemployment Benefits

Government policies can do more to serve the unemployed in our communities. Increasing job creation must be a top priority. I believe it’s the only way to help reduce dependence on unemployment benefits in our nation and state.

Unfortunately, the high taxes and regulatory policies in California deter economic development and job growth, which is a disservice to the unemployed. Without significant policy change, the remaining option is to ask Congress to extend unemployment benefits. This is certainly not a long-term fix, but it is a solution that many Californians desperately need.

we had, but it was number one.

The movie “Hoosiers” did a wonderful job of capturing the small town reverence for basketball and its importance in the lives of the good folks living in rural Indiana. I listened to the real “Hoosiers” game on the radio while working in my fathers business one Saturday in the winter of 1954. Milan beat Muncie Central 32 to 30 in a classic David vs. Goliath match up of big urban school vs. small rural school. This was probably the most popular victory in the history of sports. Every basketball fan in Indiana (outside of Muncie) was rooting for Milan. The euphoria lasted for weeks. Bobby Plump, the Milan guard who shot the winning basket made a life-long career talking about “the game.” Every Hoosier knows that story.

was an exciting game down to the wire. Visiting San Marcos High pulled out a victory over home team Mission Hills in the final seconds. Sure there was joy on one side of the gym and disappointment on the other, but there wasn’t trash talk or in your face belligerence. The team and students behaved like people who respect one another and I was proud of my hometown.

Cal State University San Marcos’ basketball program is three years old. Their 2013-2014 record is 21-1 and last week they were ranked #1 of the 101 schools who play NAIA Div I basketball. They play their home games at Mira Costa in

Oceanside and their last regular season home game is against Bethesda University, Tuesday Feb 11th at 7:30. Tickets cost $7 adults, $5 under 12 and seniors. CSUSM has a deep bench and plays a powerful high-speed game. They are fun to watch. They lost by only 15 points to fifth ranked (NCAA Div I) San Diego State in an exhibition game early in the season. Tickets to a San Diego State Game can set you back $80. If you’re a basketball fan, even a Hoosier, you can find good quality hoops entertainment real close to home right here in North County. See you at the game.

Fast-forward 60 years. High school basketball games here in North County are mostly for the students and parents. Most San Marcos residents couldn’t tell you who won the cross-town rivalry game last week between the San Marcos and Mission Hills High Schools. I could because I was there and this “Hoosier” felt right at home. A jam-packed gym, two talented well coached teams, excellent officiating, energetic well-choreographed cheer squads and wildly enthusiastic student bodies. It

Last week, my Senate colleagues and I voted in bipartisan support of SJR 18, a resolution calling on Congress to extend unemployment benefits that millions of Americans depend on. In California, there are three unemployed workers for every available job. With one of the highest unemployment rates in the country, decline in manufacturing jobs, and a business community eager to relocate to other states, California needs to take steps to restore economic success and jobs. Until then, efforts must be made to support the unemployed.

California: Poverty Capital of the Nation?

California is known around the world as “The Golden State.” Our motto, “Eureka” (I have found it), has long been emblematic of California’s status.

Now however, the once Golden State’s economy is slipping. We have over one million unemployed workers (not counting discouraged workers who are no longer looking) and our unemployment rate remains one of the highest in the U.S.

With nearly 6.2 million people living in poverty, Census Bureau statistics place California’s poverty level at 14th among the states. While this is not a good report, an alternate Census Bureau calculation that includes cost of living and other factors found that we have nearly 9 million people living in poverty. By this measure, California’s poverty rate is

actually 23.8%, the nation’s highest. Furthermore, a recent study shows that nearly 60% of our K-12 students are eligible for free or reduced-price meals due to their families’ low incomes.

Antiquated water infrastructure, overcrowded prisons and crumbling highways add to this bleak picture. We can’t tax and spend our way out of this mess. Only a vibrant economy that attracts businesses and generates jobs will lower poverty rates and generate the tax revenues necessary to rebuild California. As a small business owner, I entered public service to try to reduce the government burden on business. I will continue to fight for regulatory reform and tax relief to remove government roadblocks that hinder private-sector economic activity and severely limit individual prosperity.

ORDINANCE INTRODUCED/ ADOPTED ORDINANCE 2014-1388

AN URGENCY ORDINANCE OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF SAN MARCOS DECLARING A TEMPORARY MORATORIUM ON THE ISSUANCE OF PERMITS FOR WIRELESS COMMUNICATIONS FACILITIES WITHIN SPECIFIED AREAS IN THE CITY OF SAN MARCOS

The City Council of the City of San Marcos, California, in accordance with the freedom afforded to charter cities generally, and by the Charter of the City of San Marcos specifically, and pursuant to Government Code Section 65858, does ordain as follows:

SECTION 1. Findings and Purpose. The City Council finds and declares that:

(a) The City has adopted a Land Use Element to its General Plan and a Zoning Code (Chapter 20 of the San Marcos Municipal Code) pursuant to its police powers to protect the public health, safety and welfare. The Land Use Element sets forth policies and goals for the protection of the character of the City’s residential and historic areas, and the promotion of high-quality urban design in commercial and industrial areas that are compatible with the City’s unique character and in context with surrounding development. Chapter 20.465 of the San Marcos Municipal Code (“SMMC”) currently governs the City’s regulation of antennas and related wireless telecommunications facilities (“Wireless Facilities”).

(b) State and federal law permitting local regulation of Wireless Facilities continues to develop. In Sprint Telephone PCS, L.P. v. County of San

Diego (2008) 543 F.3d 571 (“Sprint Telephone”), the Ninth Circuit recently overruled seven years of Ninth Circuit jurisprudence relating to 47 U.S.C. § 253, a provision of Federal Telecommunications Act that, until Sprint Telephone, had been interpreted to severely limit local authority to regulate Wireless Facilities. Additionally, the FCC has issued a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking relating to Wireless Facilities, which process is still underway as of the date of this City Council hearing. (c) The City is in the course of preparing comprehensive new land use regulations with respect to Wireless Facilities and therefore anticipates applications from those who may wish to evade these future regulations. To prevent this result, the City Council intends to impose, on an urgency basis, a temporary moratorium on the issuance of discretionary or ministerial permits for the installation, change or relocation of Wireless Facilities within specified areas of the City. Such a moratorium will allow City staff, the City Council, and the City’s residents sufficient time to consider a comprehensive ordinance lawfully regulating the installation, augmentation and relocation of Wireless Facilities in the City and maintain a level playing field for all participants in that industry without rewarding those who can rush to the filing counter at the expense of competitors who may not. The preparation of such an ordinance, together with the necessary public outreach, legal research, and City processes for consideration of such enactments will require, at a minimum, forty-five (45) days. The need for such a moratorium to conduct careful study in preparing regulation for Wireless Facilities has been recognized by courts. Sprint Spectrum, L.P. v. City of Medina (1996) 924 F. Supp. 1036.

(d) The City Council’s determination is based upon the specific legislative finding that there is a current and immediate threat to public health, safety and welfare because, without this urgency ordinance, Wireless Facilities could be installed, constructed or modified in the City without conforming to the City’s proposed standards to protect residential neighborhoods and the City’s urban design and to minimize disruption to residential neighborhoods and other land uses caused by the proliferation of Wireless Facilities. Without this urgency ordinance, Wireless Facilities could:

(1) Create land use incompatibilities including excessive height of poles and towers; (2) Create visual and aesthetic blight and potential safety concerns arising from excessive size, height, or lack of camouflaging of Wireless Facilities and their associated pedestals, meters and equipment boxes; (3) Create visual and aesthetic blight and potential safety concerns by failing to capitalize on alternative technologies, co-location opportunities, and protocols for investigating the feasibility of alternative installation locations and configurations; (4) Create traffic and pedestrian safety hazards due to unsafe location of poles, towers, equipment boxes or other materials or construction related to Wireless Facilities; (5) Create operational conflicts with other land uses, facilities, or utility systems authorized or existing on the same or adjacent sites; (6) Create operational conflicts with other land use or facilities authorized or existing on the same or neighboring sites; or (7) Erode the quality of life in a particular community or neighborhood. (e) C a l i f o r n i a Government Code Section 65858 authorizes local agencies, including charter cities, to adopt an interim ordinance

that imposes a temporary moratorium prohibiting any uses that may be in conflict with the contemplated regulation of Wireless Facilities. Pursuant to Government Code Section 65858(a), this urgency interim ordinance must be adopted by not less than a four-fifths vote of this City Council and may be in effect only for forty-five (45) days from adoption. The City Council may consider extension of this interim ordinance, pursuant to statutory requirements, if necessary to allow completion of the legislative effort described above.

(f) The City recognizes its responsibilities under the Federal Telecommunications Act of 1996 and California law, and concludes that the City is acting consistently with the current state of the law in ensuring that irreversible development activity does not occur that would harm the public health, safety, or welfare. The City does not intend that this ordinance prohibit or have the effect of prohibiting telecommunications service; rather, it is a short-term suspension of the approval of applications with respect to new facilities or modifications to existing facilities until appropriate regulations can be adopted so that the installation, change and relocation of Wireless Facilities in the City occur so as to respect the rights of applicants while fully addressing the safety and land use concerns described herein.

Adoption SECTION 2. as Urgency Interim Zoning Ordinance.

This ordinance is adopted as an urgency interim zoning ordinance pursuant to Government Code Sections 36934, 36937 and 65858(a), and shall be effective immediately upon its adoption. As detailed in Section 1 of this ordinance, the City Council finds and determines that the adoption of this urgency ordinance is necessary for the immediate preservation of the public peace, health or safety pursuant to Government Code Sections 36934 and 36937, and is necessary to protect the public safety, health, and welfare pursuant to Government Code Section 65858(a). SECTION 3.

CEQA.

This Ordinance is exempt from the California Environmental Quality Act (“CEQA”) pursuant to CEQA Guidelines Section 15061(b)(3) as a project that has no potential to cause a significant effect on the environment; CEQA Guidelines Section 15060(c)(2) as a project that will not result in a direct or reasonably foreseeable indirect physical change in the environment; CEQA Guidelines Section 15302 as the replacement or reconstruction of existing structures or facilities; and CEQA Guidelines Section 15303 as the construction or installation of small structures, facilities or equipment. These findings are premised on the fact that the adoption of this urgency interim ordinance will maintain the current environmental conditions arising from the current land use regulatory structure as adopted by the City without change or alteration. A Notice of Exemption has been completed in compliance with CEQA and the CEQA Guidelines. SECTION 4. Applicability.

Notwithstanding any provision of the SMMC, including Chapter 20.465, or any other ordinance of the City, this ordinance shall apply to all new applications submitted to the City after the effective date of this Ordinance for the installation and/or augmentation of Wireless Facilities within the following areas (collectively “Affected Locations”): 1. Residential and Agricultural zones and areas, including Residential Manufactured Home Park zone, exclusive of public rights of way; 2.

(b) Any new standards for Wireless Facilities and the permitting thereof that are adopted during this moratorium and are effective upon the expiration of this moratorium shall apply to all applications that have already been accepted by the City. Any time limits or mandatory approval time frames relative to the processing and/or action upon permit applications for any and all Wireless Facilities described in Section 5(a) of this Ordinance are tolled during the term of this moratorium. The City Council intends to terminate this moratorium as soon as reasonably feasible to adopt comprehensive new land use regulations with respect to Wireless Facilities. SECTION 6. Exceptions.

The provisions of this ordinance shall not apply to: (a) Wireless Facilities in the same location as existing Wireless Facilities, which are required to repair, replace, or maintain such facilities, provided that a new Wireless Facility is substantially the same in size, shape, color, and exterior material as the existing Wireless Facility it replaces. (b) Any Wireless Facilities exempted from this ordinance by federal or state law.

(c) A change to an existing permitted Wireless Facility necessary to maintain its current functionality as previously permitted by the City. (d) If a person can demonstrate that the application of this ordinance to his or her property would constitute a taking in violation of the federal or California Constitution or would otherwise be unlawful, an exception to this moratorium can be made pursuant to a variance approved by the Communications and Technology commission under Chapter 20.525 of the SMMC.
