They were, and are not, there. Legally.

But they were. And are.

They are where they are not supposed to be. Right now. In parts of the world you haven’t even dreamed of. Or perhaps have never heard of. In parts of the world where the government and its military arms have a need to know facts.

You don’t know much about them because you’re not supposed to.

Force Recon is one of the best kept military secrets. A Special Operations branch of the US Marine Corps, its members are trained to the highest degree in combat arms . . . they are crack shots, expert in hand to hand combat, they know woodcraft, explosives, familiar with a variety of weapons, and are experts in camoflauge.

If engaged in combat they generally wipe out the enemy. They are Swift, Deadly, and Silent. Yet they seldom get into combat.

A successful mission means they did not see combat. Nor were they seen or known about by the enemy. They infiltrate an area where the government needs to know information . . . the topographical lay of the land, the political activity, the military capabilities, the economic status . . . all elements of information needed for later military or diplomatic use. They are special operations capable forces (SOC) that provide essential elements of military intelligence to the command element of the Marine Air-Ground Task Force; supporting their task force commanders, and their subordinate operating units of the Fleet Marine Force.

Historically, the Force Recon companies, detachments and platoons performed both deep reconnaissance and direct action (DA) operations. Force Recon, and its brother units, are responsible for operating independently behind enemy lines performing unconventional special operations, in support of conventional warfare. The unit's various methods of airborne, heliborne, submarine and waterborne insertions and extractions are similar to those of the Navy SEALs, Army Special Forces, 75th Ranger Regiment, or Air Force Combat Controllers, although Force Recon's missions and tasks do differ slightly with a focus on primarily supporting Marine expeditionary and amphibious operations. Green and Black Operations

The Force Recon platoons operate farther inland than their Division Recon counterparts,

penetrating deeper into enemy territory from their assigned coastal region within a force commander's 'tactical area of responsibility'. They operate at such great distances that they are beyond the boundaries of any artillery and/or naval gunfire support; unlike their Division Recon brethren, whose operations are primarily within the artillery and gunfire support ranges. Silence and stealth are vital in reducing chances of compromising their position—if a single round is fired, the mission is deemed to have failed. It is one of the more secret military organizations. Evidence of that is in . . . the lack of evidence. They leave very little trace behind of their presence. The stories we are about to tell you are not all that easy to come by. They were gathered from personal interviews, from research into military libraries, and further docu-

mented by “reliably informed sources.”

It should be noted that the Green element of Force Recon maintain an intentional low profile. Their missions may encompass battle damage assessment missions–witnessing and reporting collateral damage of target(s) caused by delivered payload, either from heavy support fire measures (artillery and naval gunfire support), high-explosive– or thermonuclear weapons; remote sensors operations–placing remote sensors and beacons vital for the marking of friendly/hostile boundaries and areas for helicopter pilots, for assault or infantry transport, becoming detrimental for combat or logistic support; initial terminal guidance setting up/preparing landing zones and drop zones for forward operating sites for Marine fixed or rotary wing aircraft, possible future landing spots for parachute entry, or waterborne locations (landing force, ship-to-shore) operations. Black Operations

Unlike their Green operational cousins, the Black operations are the missions that require direct action. These Force

One Sunday morning, a mother went in to wake her son and tell him it was time to get ready for church, to which he replied, "I'm not going."

"Why not?" she asked.

“I'll give you two good reasons," he said.

"(1), they don't like me, and (2), I don't like them." His mother replied, "I'll give you two good reasons why you SHOULD go to church: (1) You're 59 years old, and (2) you're the pastor!" The Picnic

Recon operators basically "look for trouble." Depending on the situation and the target location, these operators usually conduct direct action missions within the artillery and naval gun support ranges; these operations demonstrate "small-scale" shock and awe.

Examples are the seizures and occupation of gas/oil platforms and the Visit, Board, Search, and Seizure of ships during Maritime Interdiction Operations, as well as orchestrating close air support, a vital skill exercised in DA missions; Force Recon operators forward observe from static positions and spider holes for artillery and naval gunfire support, or ordnance and payload delivery. Due to the nature of “Green” operations, there is not a lot of literature on their missions. Since the “Black” operations involved direct action we find a number of stories that dramatically portray what happened.

Whereas the Green operational missions were to ‘get in, get the intelligence, get out,’ without being seen or heard, and without firing a shot, the Black operational missions involved the setting and execution of ambushes, employement of snipers, and, sometimes, hand to hand combat with the enemy. True, they were

I know it's against your religion, but I can't understand why such a wonderful food should be forbidden! You don't know what you're missing. You just haven't lived until you've tried Mrs. Hall's prized Virginia Baked Ham. Tell me, Rabbi, when are you going to break down and try it?"

The rabbi looked at the priest with a big grin, and said, "At your wedding." The Usher

An elderly woman walked into the local country church. The friendly usher greeted her at the door and helped her up the flight of steps. "Where would you like to sit?" he asked politely.

"The front row, please," she answered. "You really don't want to do that," the usher said. "The pastor is really boring." "Do you happen to know who I am?" the woman inquired. "No," he said.

In 1967, Maj. James Steele of the III Marine Amphibious Force Intelligence section began comparing statistics between Force Recon and regular Marine units in S. Vietnam. The results were startling. In tallying kill ratios, Steele discovered that the kill ratio for regular Marine infantry was 7.6 enemy killed for one Marine. For Force Recon, the ratio was 34 enemy killed for

A kindergarten teacher gave her class a "show and tell" assignment. Each student was instructed to bring in an object that represented their religion to share with the class. The first student got up in front of the class and said, "My name is Benjamin and I am Jewish and this is a Star of David."

The second student got up in front of the class and said, "My name is Mary. I'm a Catholic and this is a Rosary."

The third student got in up front of the class and said, "My name is Tommy. I am Methodist, and this is a casserole." The Best Way To Pray

every one Force Recon Marine. In the category of enemy contact, he revealed that with regular Marine infantry units, the enemy initiated contact 80 percent of the time. But with Force Recon, it was the opposite. Astonishingly, in 95 percent of the incidents, it was Force Recon that initiated contact.

Some of the teams became noteworthy as a result of a superior body of work achieved during their operational lifetime. The First Force Recon Company team, code-named Killer Kane, was among that select group as a result of the series of successful operations it conducted during most of 1967.

Organized under the command of 1st Lt. Andrew R. Finlayson, Killer Kane began reconnaissance operations in the Hiep

"Kneeling is definitely the best way to pray," the priest said. "No," said the minister. "I get the best results standing with my hands outstretched to Heaven." "You're both wrong," the guru said. "The most effective prayer position is lying down on the floor." The repairman could contain himself no longer. "Hey, fellas," he interrupted.

Dup Valley, also known as Antenna Valley, where it quickly established a reputation for sound judgment and tactical skill.

The death of fellow Force Recon Marines Capt. Eric Barnes and Sgt. Godfred Blankenship to a booby trap while on patrol on March 25, 1967, had a profound impact on Finlayson and the future of Killer Kane operations. Barnes was deeply loved by his men and his death occurred on his last mission — one he did not have to be on. Finlayson vowed that his and Sgt. Blankenship’s deaths would not go unavenged. After talking it over with the rest of the team, they all agreed, from that point on, whenever team Killer Kane went out it would be as hunters, not just gatherers.

The opportunity to make good on this vow came on Killer Kane’s next mission. While en route to their preplanned landing zone, Finlayson managed to convince the helicopter pilots ferrying them to drop the team north of the intended drop zone, in the area where Barnes and Blankenship had been killed. They set up their ambush along a trail and proceeded to wait. Their first ambush killed two Viet Cong. A second ambush resulted in two more Viet Cong deaths and a dispatch case containing the names of a number of Communist undercover agents in Antenna Valley. Not wanting to push their luck after two successful ambushes, Finlayson radioed for an extraction. This successful mission proved to be just the first of many. For the next nine months of its existence, Team Killer Kane conducted 34 longrange reconnaissance patrols, caused 181 confirmed enemy kills and 254 probable kills by artillery and air strikes, 42 confirmed kills by small arms, nine captured enemy soldiers, and large caches of enemy documents, supplies, and materiel. The mission on May 15, 1967, demonstrated the deadly combined force effectiveness of the team. Killer Kane had established an observation post on Hill 203 overlooking the Hiep Dup Trail. The action began when the team spotted seven Viet Cong walking down the trail and ambushed them with a combination of small arms fire and M-79 grenades. The result was one confirmed dead and four presumed killed with no casualties suffered by the team. Not long afterward, the team spotted an estimated 100 Viet Cong coming down the trail. Finlayson immediately called in an artillery mission. As the enemy began retreating

from the artillery barrage, Finlayson succeeded in reaching a spotter plane who called in air strikes of napalm and rockets. The result was more than 30 enemy confirmed killed and an undetermined amount wounded.

Team Killer Kane’s greatest mission occurred on July 21, 1967, at Suoi Ca Valley, also known as Happy Valley. Killer Kane was ordered to conduct screening operations for the 1st Battalion 7th Marines in Operation Pecos at Ly Tin and Binh Son. The team was conducting a reconnaissance patrol on the second day of their mission when the point man heard voices in a nearby ravine. The voices were so loud that Finlayson initially thought he had come in contact with Marines operating in the area. After double-checking his map, he determined that no friendly forces were in his “box” and that the team had come into contact with an enemy that felt so confident it was safe that it had ignored standard security procedures.

Finlayson quietly set up a fourman ambush composed of his machine gunner, point man, back-up, and himself. At his signal they opened fire. The ambush was a total surprise. Ten minutes of intensive fire from the team, in which only two short bursts of erratic enemy automatic fire were received, were followed by a volley of hand grenades and gas grenades. Finlayson then led his men cautiously down into the ravine to search the contact site. As they looked around, it became obvious that the enemy had chosen to run rather than fight. The bodies of two dead enemy were surrounded by a huge quantity of scattered supplies, weapons, and documents. Finlayson ordered his men to gather up everything and return to their defensive positions on the ridge. After they secured the area they began to check out what they had captured. Finlayson later said, “The inventory included two Chinese light machine guns, an AK-47 assault rifle, two anti-tank rocket launchers 16 packs, 850 pounds of rice, 15 pounds of medical equipment, cooking utensils, knives, web gear, gas masks, 140 uniforms, and 15 sweatshirts.” But the most important part of their haul was 40 pounds of documents including codes, unit designations, diaries, and serialized equipment lists for the Viet Cong 402nd Sapper Battalion. It was the largest seizure of equipment, weapons, and intelligence gathered by a recon patrol at that point in the war. Killer Kane’s growing reputa-

tion made them the focus of attention by both their superiors and the media. Newsweek wrote an article about Finlayson. Visiting dignitaries and higher-ranking officers were regularly briefed and updated by the team. Ultimately the team was disbanded through the normal rotation cycle as team members completed their tours of duty.

When Finlayson’s tour ended, he was awarded the Bronze Star. His citation read in part, “With a daring and a flair normally reserved for fictional accounts, Lieutenant Finlayson accumulated a year-long remarkable record. Behind the radio call sign Killer Kane, his thoroughly professional patrol time after time closed with the enemy and achieved outstanding results.”

In 1970, Lt. Gen. Raymond G. Davis, former deputy commander of XXIV Corps and commanding general of 3rd Marine Division in Vietnam. Of Force Recon, he said, in part, “Our most reliable intelligence came from small four- or six-man Marine patrols. Throughout the province, as many as 40 of these teams were maintained on the ground in operation at all times — thereby providing a positive and rapid means of checking out indications of enemy activity anywhere. As a result, we knew with some precision where the enemy was located, what he was doing, and, just as important, where he was not.” Of more recent vintage, Force Recon played a major role in Iraq . . . at a place known as Fallujah (or the Iraqi spelling of ‘Fallouja.) The Marines were crouched in foxholes gouged from the desert north of Fallouja, scanning the fireworks. An immense barrage of air and artillery strikes rained down on the rebel-held city, and the Marines roared with every blast. Force Recon was at work.

Almost two days before the battle for Fallouja, the Marines' elite Force Reconnaissance units had infiltrated the northern periphery of town. They had dug into "hide sites" and "shaped" the future battlefield, calling in guerrilla positions for the spectacular bombardment that preceded the invasion. " 'Shaping' the battle is making the enemy do what you want him to do," said Marine Gunnery Sgt. Ed McDermott, 35, of Force Recon. "You drop bombs on him. You make him pull back. You subject him to direct and indirect fire. You cut off his supply lines."

The prevailing narrative of the fight for Fallouja was the dominance of 12,000 U.S. and Iraqi troops over a spirited but outgunned and outmanned insurgent army.

Little noticed outside Marine circles was the important role of the several dozen troops of Force Recon, who reported on insurgent positions, spearheaded attacks, covered advancing infantrymen and squeezed off sniper rounds at unsuspecting bands of guerrillas.

"Force Recon provided us with some tremendous capabilities," said Col. Craig Tucker, who headed one of the two major battle groups that descended on this city last month. "I just can't say enough about the job they did." The specially trained Marines are similar to Navy SEALs and Army Green Berets and Rangers. Their precise role is often shrouded in secrecy, but a group attached to the 1st Battalion of the 8th Marine Regiment during the battle of Fallouja agreed to talk as the fighting raged.

"We enjoy what we do," said Capt. Jason Schauble, 29, a Force Recon commander whose platoon suffered casualty rates of more than 50% during the fight, though most returned to action. "There's a lot of risks, but we're all volunteers. We understand the risks." They spoke late at night in this blacked-out and devastated city from their perch in a darkened fourth-floor apartment that once housed guerrilla gunmen.

In one of the rooms, Staff Sgt. Mark Detrick lay on his stomach in classic sniper position, his rifle balanced on a tripod, its muzzle pointing downrange through a window, but from about 10’ inside the building so as to conceal the muzzle flash when fired.

"They don't have a clue what's coming," Detrick said, scanning the ruins of the city to the south, where unseen combatants were still dug into the rubble and moving about. The platoon's push into Fallouja had been difficult. Guerrilla squads of four to six fighters attacked from fortified positions in abandoned homes, alleyways, courtyards and on rooftops. "We were shooting in all directions," Schauble said, recalling that first full day inside Fallouja. "There were enemy coming out, setting up mortars.

Since Sister Mary Ann was on the way to see a patient, she decided not to wait and walked back to her car.

The Kiwanians and Escondido Senior Anglers who man the Kiddie Pond get almost as much joy out of it as the kids (and their parents) do. Set Saturday and Sunday aside on April 26 and 27th, from 6am till 4pm each day. Those are the days that parents and grandparents savor the joy of seeing kiddies learn how to fish.

Historically Speaking by Tom Morrow

If chartering were the path to ruin, however, how do you explain cities like Carlsbad and San Marcos, arguably two of the most financially sound, and generally considered bestrun, cities in San Diego County?

Quality of Charter Cities is about the Leadership

There have been some recent conversations going in the social media world about the Escondido City Council’s rekindling of the proposal to make their city a charter city, as well as a “conversation” in regard to the best way to determine how political candidates will represent voters, or not. While these two subjects might seem somewhat dissimilar, deeper analysis might prove there is a link to cause and effect. On the charter city issue, many people would have voters believe that because certain jurisdictions that have taken

I posed that very question to someone recently. Their response was that those two cities clearly had leadership interested in running their governments efficiently with their community’s input. That was likely a very good assumption. Which requires a reexamination of the premise that all charters are inherently bad.

If being a charter city isn’t what makes good or bad government, it follows that it is the leadership of the government that makes the determination. And that leadership is put in place by voters.

Which brings me to the second discussion: How do people get to know the candidates for offices to represent them the way they wish?

To ensure the Navy would always have enough fuel available in case of war, in 1912, President Howard Taft designated Teapot Dome and Elk Hills as Naval oil reserve fields. In 1921, at the urging of Interior Secretary Albert Fall, President Harding issued an executive order transferring the two oil fields from the Navy Department to the Interior Department.

The Teapot Dome Scandal

Most of us have heard of the “Teapot Dome” scandal, but what was it, where was it, and what did it involve?

Teapot Dome was a scandal over oil leases that occurred in President Warren G. Harding’s administration during the early 1920s. It was a decadelong scandal that made countless national headlines. Teapot Dome is an oil field in Natrona County, Wyoming. The scandal also involved the Elk Hills oil field in Kern County, California.

In the early 20th century, the U.S. Navy began converting warships from coal to oil fuel.

Then in 1922, Fall issued a lease on the Teapot Dome oil field to Harry F. Sinclair, founder of Sinclair Oil. Fall also issued a lease on the Elk Hills reserve to legendary California oil man Edward L. Doheny. Both leases were issued without competitive bidding, but they were deemed legal under the Mineral Leasing Act of 1920.

The lease terms were very favorable to the oil companies. Fall secretly received a $100,000 interest-free loan from Doheny (about $1.5 million in today’s money). He also received gifts from both Doheny and Sinclair totaling more than $400,000 ($5.5 million in today’s money). Obviously, it was the loan and

gifts that were illegal. Fall attempted to keep his private dealings with Doheny and Sinclair a secret, but the sudden improvement in his standard of living caused concern.

A complaint about the Teapot Dome lease by a small Wyoming oil producer triggered an investigation. By 1924, no evidence of wrongdoing had been uncovered, but the last-minute discovery of Fall’s acceptance of money was his undoing. Probers uncovered critical evidence that Fall had forgotten to cover up: Doheny's $100,000 loan. The scandal broke wide open, triggering a number of civil and criminal suits. In 1927 the Supreme Court ruled the oil leases had been fraudulently obtained. The Court invalidated both the Elk Hills and Teapot Dome leases. The reserves were returned to the Navy Department. In 1929, Secretary Fall was found guilty of bribery, fined $100,000 and sentenced to one year in prison, making him the first Presidential cabinet member to go to prison for his actions in office.

There was enemy firing [rocketpropelled grenades], enemy firing machine guns and small arms. We shot all day, at different targets." Guerrillas in sneakers and track pants scurried from house to house, using weapons caches pre-positioned in anticipation of the U.S. attack that everyone knew was coming. At that point in the battle, the unit's task was to support the Marine riflemen who were advancing into the city. The Force Recon team was watching the flanks, where the insurgents, seeking to evade prowling U.S. armored vehicles, chose to attack. "They found the seam -- where we ended up being," Schauble said.

But Force Recon's role in the battle had begun earlier, when Marines hunkered down in the northern periphery of the city. They identified spots where troops on foot and in vehicles could cross the railroad tracks and pierce guerrilla defenses. Then they observed enemy positions.

On the evening of Nov. 8, the massive, pre-invasion bom-

ate with investigators, was charged with contempt, fined $100,000, and received a short sentence of six months for jury tampering. Doheny was acquitted of bribery in 1930.

One of the most significant outcomes of the scandal was a Supreme Court ruling explicitly giving Congress the power to compel testimony. For those of us today who wonder just how much power the Congress has when calling people to testify, that high-court ruling speaks volumes.

Teapot Dome was one of the primary scandals that, historically, has saddled President Harding’s legacy as having a corrupt administration. Check out my novels by going to: www.tomorrowsnovels.com Free shipping.

bardment of Fallouja began.

"We used F/A-18s, we used Harriers," said a pilot who served as forward controller. "When we needed it, we'd call in a strafing run," added the lanky, 37-year-old Marine, an officer who asked to be identified only as Frisky. The Force Recon Marines advanced into the ominous streets of Fallouja. The gunfire, tracers and rocket flashes subsided as dawn approached. But first light broke with a renewed crescendo of gunfire. Guerrillas in ambush positions opened up from all sides. Some Marine units were pinned down for hours. A Navy corpsman working with the Force Recon unit was hit in the back shortly after sunrise. Everywhere there was fire, some from the enemy, some from nearby Marines. Detrick, under heavy fire, scampered into an open area on his way to what he hoped was a more secure position.

"As we were crossing to go, some machine gun and something else [coming] from an alley just lit my team up," Detrick, 29, recalled. "Right off the bat, my assistant team leader, he got hit and he was down, KIA [killed in action] automatically."

Detrick and others took cover at a garbage dumpster, cut off from the rest of their unit. "As I was crawling up, they shot an armor-piercing round through that dumpster," Detrick said. "It hit the ground in front of me and bounced off my left forearm. Hit the wall behind me and came back at me." The staff sergeant got a good look at the round. The memory lingers: "It was basically a steel bullet about a foot and a half long, an inch in diameter." Fortunately, the lethal projectile, meant to pierce tanks, didn't explode.

The firing leveled off about midday, as it often did during the fighting in Fallouja. The insurgents were inclined to take a break, grab a bite, maybe take a nap, before resuming their labors in the afternoon, Marines said. The respite gave the Americans an opportunity to retrieve the body of their comrade. But by 4 p.m. that first day, the streets again resounded with gunfire, the crackling rounds of Kalashnikovs and the steady thuds of M-16s.

To the east of a Force Recon position, a group of insurgents was suddenly flushed from an alley. They jetted down an open street, apparently trying to join colleagues retreating to the city's southern reaches. Within minutes, four were slumped over, cut down by intense Marine fire. One of them had lugged a heavy machine gun and had several belts of large-caliber ammunition slung on his shoulders. The Force Recon troops say the four were probably responsible for the death of their comrade.

"There's a very good chance we got all or part of those guys who killed our guy," said the officer called Frisky. "I think it's important to mention that."

At nightfall on Nov. 9, the shooting subsided again. The Force Recon men joined other Marines in a tank-escorted formation headed south to the Al Hadra al Muhammadiya mosque, a former insurgent stronghold taken earlier in the day by U.S. and Iraqi troops after a short gun battle. Many Marines would rest here for the first time in 48 hours. But the numbing pattern of fighting and advancing was unrelenting. On Nov. 12, three Force Recon Marines survived a pair of rocket-propelled grenades that blasted the apartment where they were holed up. Cpl. Frank Delgado was knocked unconscious by a separate RPG barrage and pulled from the rubble; he was later shot as Marines exchanged fire with attackers

positioned in another mosque. Delgado was evacuated and survived. The rebels who had held sway for so many months in Fallouja were soon on the run, pushed south in an increasingly desperate struggle.

"It's likely some of the leaders left town and left their subordinates to fight the fight," Schauble said. "But we thought it was important to seize this city, to show the insurgents we were willing to go in." In all, 13 of Schauble's platoon of 24 would be eligible for Purple Hearts for injuries sustained in the battle for Fallouja. Several, among them Detrick and Delgado, are in line for multiple Purple Hearts. Pirates Captured

The calls for help came about 9:30 a.m. Wednesday: The crew of the Magellan Star, a German-owned shipping vessel in the Gulf of Aden, needed help after it was boarded by armed Somali pirates about 85 miles off the coast of Yemen.

The resulting operation will likely be a feather in the cap of the Marine Corps and its force reconnaissance community for years to come. After a day of deliberations that reached senior White House and Pentagon officials, Marines with 2nd Platoon, Force Reconnaissance Company, out of Camp Pendleton, Calif., launched a daring early morning raid known as a VBSS, or visitboard-search-seize. Pushing off from the amphibious transport dock Dubuque at dawn Thursday, they stormed the ship without a shot being fired, taking nine suspected pirates prisoner, Marine officials said.

The mission, overseen by Pendleton’s 15th Marine Expeditionary Unit, is one of the first high-profile operations for force recon Marines in years. Col. David Coffman, who commanded Pendleton’s 13th Marine Expeditionary Unit, said he was thrilled to hear about the raid’s success. It validates the need for VBSS capabilities within MEUs, he said.

“We don’t like a fair fight,” said Coffman, who begins training his unit this month for a future deployment. “You bring a gun to a knife fight.” While force reconnaissance conducted the boarding of Magellan Star, the operation involved numerous units, many of which fall under the 15th MEU. They include a bat-

talion landing team headed by Pendleton’s 1st Battalion, 4th Marines, which oversaw the mission and provided snipers in over-watch positions. Marine Medium Helicopter Squadron 165 (reinforced), out of Marine Corps Air Station Miramar, Calif., provided Huey and Cobra gunship helicopters for aerial surveillance and support. Photographs released by the military show about 24 troops floating from Dubuque to Magellan Star on what appears to be inflatable rigid hull boats commonly used by Navy SEALs. The alleged pirates showed hostile intention toward the Dubuque as it drew near, said Lt. Col. J.R. Clearfield. They repeatedly pointed their weapons at the Dubuque and said in radio communications that they would not surrender and planned to demand money from the Magellan Star’s owner, he said.

When the Marines boarded the ship, however, the suspected pirates changed their tune. Faced with overwhelming firepower, they gave up relatively easily, with several of them putting their hands in the air.

Manufacturing in the Golden State

California has lost more than 600,000 jobs in manufacturing in the past decade. Businesses leave, as California is one of the most expensive places to do business in the country. With increasing energy costs, regulations, and taxes, most CEO’s from across the country consider California the worst state in which to do business.

California’s undesirable business climate is statistically supported and nationally recognized. Manufacturing job growth in California has been only 1.15%, while the national average has been 4.9%.

In California, state policies do not encourage business growth and this needs to change. Our unemployed and underemployed depend on it.

I believe California’s economy

“We set the stage so that we were able to engage them piecemeal,” said Navy Capt. Chris Bolt, who oversees Dubuque. “The bottom line is, imagine walking around the corner and finding 50 weapons pointed at your face.”

The largest difficulty that the force faced in securing the ship was reaching its 11 crew members, who had locked themselves in an engine room, Marines said. Fearing that the Marines were actually pirates, they escaped into two more locked, reinforced rooms after the troops cut a hole into the first one. A Marine in the force, Sgt. Max Chesmore, convinced them it was safe by pulling the

putting it through a hole they cut in the third room. The suspected pirates were all likely in their 20s and 30s, and some of them didn’t have shoes or shirts, Marines on board at the time of the raid said. After they gave up, their fear was obvious, said Capt. Alexander Martin, commander of the force recon platoon. They were detained aboard the guided missile cruiser Princeton, Berger said, but officials would not immediately say where they may be taken next.

“As soon as the first stack of [Marines] made our way into the bridge, their hands were up, their weapons were down, they moved to their knees and they were compliant,” Martin said. “At that point, they were pretty scared. One guy actually defecated himself. … He sh-- his pants. I don’t know if that can go on the news or not, but that actually happened.”

Probably no more needs to be said. That last paragraph Above: Maritime Force Recon Force that pretty much captured Somali pirates sums up the U.S. flag off his cammies and impression the Force Recon

and manufacturing industry can improve, which is why I organized an event last week– “Making California Thrive: Manufacturing in the Golden State.” I invited economists, business executives, labor leaders, and others to discuss solutions for California. Industry experts reviewed current challenges and suggested policies that would support manufacturing growth. Making California thrive once again depends upon an improved business climate, increased manufacturing, and getting people back to work. For more event information visit www.senate.ca.gov/wyland.

Last month, Sydney University and CSIRO scientists released the results of a recent analysis that revealed the presence of female hormones in beer. Men should take a concerned look at their beer consumption. The theory is that beer contains female hormones (hops contain Phytoestrogens) and that by drinking enough beer, men turn into women. To test the theory, 100 men drank 8 pints of beer each within a 1 hour period. It was then observed that 100% of the test subjects : 1) Argued over nothing.

To: Mayor Sam Abed, Deputy Mayor Olga Diaz, Councilman Ed Gallo, Councilman John Masson, and Councilman Mike Morasco Subject: Making more Council Meetings available online

We are so lucky to live at a time when City Council meetings can be seen on television and recorded for future viewing online. It gives all of us a chance to understand the issues that face the Council as well as the decisions each of you choose to make. And for those of you running for office in November, those videos are another way for voters to get to know you, see how you think,

how you handle conflict, how you find compromise. But the sad fact is, many of your meetings can no longer be seen online because a retention schedule set by the City Clerk’s office removes them after a little more than two years. The Clerk may even have gone so far as to permanently shelve — I have to believe she wouldn’t have gone so far as to destroy — videos of meetings that were more than five years old. That means many important Council meetings that included three of you — Mayor Abed, Deputy Mayor Diaz and Councilman Gallo — might not be readily available. Do you support that? Now I know the City Clerk is just following the rules — but those are rules that the Council can change because there is no law that sets a maximum limit on how long you can make City Council meetings available online.

I looked at the other cities in North County, as well as the City of San Diego, and they all keep their videos online for years and years longer than Escondido (the short, red column in the chart). We keep them for 28 months and Carlsbad, next in line, keeps them for 60. How embarrassing.

As California continues to battle the worst drought seen in centuries, San Diego businesses are rising up and joining more than 120 California-based companies, and 700 companies nationwide, in signing the Climate Declaration. The declaration states that tackling climate change is one of America’s greatest economic opportunities of the 21st century, and urges federal and state policymakers to address climate change. “As the world’s eighth largest economy, California is a champion of clean energy progress and innovation,” states the Climate Declaration. “California has been a global leader in job creation, clean energy investments and GDP growth.”

A bright spot in California’s energy market is the solar energy industry. San Diego, being one of the sunniest cities in America, is a solar capital of the nation.

"Sullivan Solar Power was founded with the intent to make our world a better place by transitioning our country to clean, renewable energy, so it was a no-brainer for us to sign on to the Climate Declaration,” said Daniel Sullivan, founder and president of Sullivan Solar Power. “There is a reason solar is America’s fastest-growing industry; not only does solar help our country declare energy independence, it allows businesses and homeowners to make a difference, while putting Americans to work.” To learn more, attend the FREE solar luncheon this Saturday! This presentation will cover solar technology, rebates and incentives, and the new financing program that allows residents to pay for solar through their property taxes.

Two weeks till Microsoft ends support for XP and its over 500 million users. On the surface it doesn’t seem to make sense that Microsoft would turn their backs on nearly a third of the Worlds PC users. It’s true that Microsoft users have nowhere else to go, but can Microsoft actually abandon their own child with no consequences? Probably not and they are struggling mightily with that decision. In theory, end of support for XP means Microsoft would no longer engineer and distribute security patches for newly discovered vulnerabilities in Windows XP. Actually Microsoft will continue to engineer and distribute security patches but not for everyone. Microsoft continues this service for anyone willing to pay $200 the first year, and $400 then $800 in subsequent years. That seems ridiculous for a service that

Petition for Probate has been filed by John Given in the Superior Court of California, County of San Diego, 1409 Fourth Ave., San Diego, CA. 92101, Central Div., Madge Bradley Bldg. The Petition for Probate requests that John Given be appointed as personal representative to administer the estate of the decedent. The peition requests authority to administer the estate under the Independent Administration of Estates Act. (This authority will allow the personal repreesentative to take many actions without obtaining court approval. Before taking certain very important actions, however, the personal representattive will be required to give notice to interested persons unless they have waived notice or consented to the proposed actions.) The independent administration authority will be granted unless an interested person files an objection to the petitions and shows good cause why the court should not grant the authority. A hearing on the petition will be held in this court as follows: Date: 4/8/2014 Time: 11:00 a.m. Dept: PC-1 Address of court: Same as noted above. If you object to the granting of the petition, you should appear at the hearing and state your objections or file written objections with the court before the hearing. Your appearance may be in person or by your attorney. If you are a creditor or a contingent creditor of the decedent, you must file your claim with the court and mail a copy to the personal representative appointed by the court within the later of either (1) four months from the date of first issuance of letters to a general personal representative, as defined in Section 58(b) of the California Probate Code, or (2) 60 days from

Microsoft makes about $50 on the sale of a new PC operating system (OS). The average life of a PC is five years so Microsoft can expect to make about $10 a year on each PC. How and why can they justify charging hundreds of dollars per PC for support and then turn around and support Chinese users for pennies? Why doesn’t Microsoft simply charge all XP users $10/year for continued support? That’s as much as they can expect to make selling new OS and they are already committed to doing the work. Something doesn’t make sense. Or does it?

half a billion XP users happy. But hardware and software sellers would feel betrayed and might just start looking to Google or Linux for their next generation OS. In China 50% still use Win XP. More than half are “pirated” copies. In recent years the Chinese government has co-operated with Western software developers in reducing software piracy. Microsoft is fearful that forcing the Chinese to upgrade from XP might trigger a new round of Win 7 piracy. If the cost of upgrading from XP becomes too burdensome, China might seek or develop an alternative source for their PC OS.

Microsoft’s apparent irrational behavior is at least in part caused be their need to seek long-term solu-

tions in a world that seems to be leaving them behind. Today there are viable alternatives to Microsoft’s OS. Counting mobile devices (smart phones and tablets) and PCs, Microsoft now trails Google in the number of installed OS. Microsoft really needs the support and loyalty from governments and its “big business” partners, its users, not so much. Our recommendation for the April 8th end of support date to XP users is simply to keep everything up to date, your files backed up and stop worrying. Microsoft Security Essentials and the other anti-malware programs will support XP through July of 2015. If your PC is less than six years old or has Vista consider upgrading to Win 7 (not Win 8). For all other XP users “If it ain’t broke don’t fix it.”

The entire PC industry, software and hardware, rely on Microsoft to advance the OS technology and create a demand for change. Hardware sellers like Dell, HP Acer, Lenovo and applications creators like Adobe and Intuit thrive when Microsoft introduces a successful OS like Win 98, XP and Windows 7. They suffer horribly when Microsoft barfs turkeys like ME, Vista and Windows 8. Right now they are suffering. If Microsoft decided to “cash cow” XP by continuing user support for a nominal fee, $10 or $15/year, they would make a handsome profit and

One easy way, in the case of those who are already in office or have been in the past, is just to examine their voting record on key issues. While it’s commonly accepted that many politicians can, and do, often say things designed to please the audience of the moment, it’s pretty difficult to obfuscate what is on the record.

Rookie candidates, on the other hand, are a greater challenge. Unless there is some kind of public documentation of words (newspaper columns, for instance) or deeds, voters have little to go on. The standard “get acquainted” tactics of candidates are appearance at informal events hosted by supporters, and can-

On Saturday (March 22), the SD Humane Society is holding an affordable licensing, vaccination, and microchip event at Brengle Terrace Park from 10 am to noon. Did you know the City of Vista’s animal licensing is managed by the San Diego County Humane Society’s North Campus in Oceanside? Stop by to have your new furry friend vaccinated or to renew or purchase a pet license. Check the Humane Society’s web site for other event details at sdhumane.org/licensing or call at 760.730.8850.

didate forums. The former is usually by invitation, and the latter may or may not be open to the public at large. In either event, they require some degree of effort on the part of the voter. I have attended, and helped conduct, a number of candidate forums. Sadly, too often the only people in the room were people already supporting a particular candidate.

And therein lies the rub. When less than sixty percent of those eligible to vote bother to, as did so nationally in 2012, our leadership is determined by a minority-majority. If people are truly interested in how their communities are run, it is not enough to take the easy road and vote for the most visible candidates. Voters

San Marcos • Mayor Jim Desmond Outreach Plannedfor new Rancho Coronado Park

First work shop slated for March 24

City officials will begin gathering input from the community regarding a new park for San Marcos on Monday, March 24 at 6 pm during a public workshop at the San Marcos Community Center, 3 Civic Center Drive. The Rancho Coronado Park is planned for 20-acres off Village Drive just southwest of Discovery Lake.

This is the first of four community workshops planned for residents to weigh-in on what they would like to

see at the park. The remaining workshops will be held in the coming months. Residents will also be offered an online feedback option for their convenience. Our goal as a City is to engage residents early in the planning process so we can truly build the type of park they want. Future outreach meetings will include conceptual plans for residents to review. Construction on the Rancho Coronado Park is expected to begin in early 2016. An opening date will be determined once the final construction plan is developed.

The Pastor Says . . .

Pastor Sam Brumit Mission 316 Church San Marcos, CA.

Resolving Conflict

Conflict is inevitable in life … with a neighbor, a boss, a coworker or even fellow member of a church. Yes, church.

A man was stranded on a deserted island for years. Finally one day a boat sailed into view, and the man frantically draws the skipper’s attention. The boat comes near the island and the sailor gets out and greets the stranded man. Eventually, the sailor asks, “What are those three huts you have here?” “Well, that’s my house.” “What’s that next hut?” asks the sailor. “I built that as my church.” “What about the other one?” “Oh, that’s where I used to go to church.”

Whether your conflict is with someone in your home, office, or even at your church, sometimes you will need help. One time the apostle Paul of the Bible wrote to a group and encouraged two people who were fighting to unite. Also he asked others in the group to step in and help them to get along. (Philippians 4:1-3) Here are three ways to reduce conflict: BE A PEACEMAKER. In conflict, we tend to do one of two things. We pick a side or we use conflict avoidance. Maybe God is calling you to be a peacemaker and help others unite. EXERCISE SOME GRACE. It’s easy to jump on other people. Why grace? Because we all need some. The Bible has lots to say about conflict resolution, but it all begins in the context of mercy. SEEK COMMON GROUND. In the church, we realize that Christ is our common ground. We don’t all think alike. We actually share much in common if we look for it. Christ is our common foundation. Focus on common ground, not conflict ground.

Is there a conflict you need to resolve? Needed as a referee? Do you need to have a conversation or make a call? At Mission 316 Church we are here to help in various aspects of faith. Come and visit.

Prosecuters say Priest had cashed more than $30,000 in checks to herself from the chamber funds and forged signatures of other chamber officials on dozens of checks written between 2010 and 2012.

Since her arrest and conviction Chamber board members have developed tighter fiduciary controls for its management and staff to operate under and Chamber business once again appears to be up and running smoothly with no problems. Carlsbad’s New City Manager Drawing Top Dollar

Steven R. Sarkozy, Carlsbad’s newly hired City Manager is now the highest paid administrator in the county, earning a base salary of $260,000. He has also been granted $25,000 to cover his moving expenses from Bellevue, Washington, and $47,000 to offset his housing costs during the first year on the job. While critics claim the salary and benefits are excessive, Mayor Matt Hall claims they are warranted since Sarkozy is reputed to be one of the nation’s top city managers.

City of San Marcos: Notice of Public Hearing: Community Development Block Grant 20142018 Needs Assessment and Notice of Published Draft 2014-2018 Consolidated Plan and 2014/15 Draft Annual Action Plan

The City of San Marcos will hold a public hearing on April 8, 2014 at 6:00 p.m. in the City Council Chambers, 1 Civic Center Drive, San Marcos, CA 92069, to gather public input about the proposed uses of the City’s Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds and to review the 2014-2018 Draft Consolidated Plan (ConPlan), the Draft 2014/15 Annual Action Plan (AAP), and the 2014-2018 Needs Assessment findings to date. CDBG funds are provided by the Federal government to local jurisdictions to help improve the quality of life and housing availability for low- to moderate-income residents.

Public input will be used to assist the City in developing its five-year ConPlan for Program Years 2014-2018 and its AAP for Program Year 2014/15. The ConPlan is the City’s business plan on how it will expend federal CDBG and local funds for the benefit of low-and moderate-income residents over the next five years. The AAP describes the programs and projects the City will expend its CDBG allocation for the coming program year. It is estimated that the City may receive approximately $572,000 in CDBG funds for Program Year 2014/15. Program Year 2014/15 begins July 1, 2014 and ends June 30, 2015. The Council Chambers is accessible to persons with disabilities; however, if you require special accommodations, please contact the City Clerk’s Department at (760) 744-1050, extension 3145 at least one day prior to the hearing date. Translation will be provided for persons with limited English proficiency upon request, by contacting the City’s ConPlan Coordinator, Julie Magee, at (760) 7441050, extension 3137 or via e-mail at jmagee@san-marcos.net at least five days before the hearing date.

Citizen participation is very important during the development of the City’s ConPlan and AAP. The City has published a Citizen Participation Plan, which documents how the City intends to involve the community in the planning process. The Citizen Participation Plan is available for review at the City Clerk’s Office at City Hall, 1 Civic Center Drive, San Marcos, CA 92069, during normal business hours or can be viewed online at http://www.san-marcos.net Public participation is encouraged at all meetings concerning the expenditure of CDBG funds and during the ConPlan and AAP development process. The draft ConPlan and draft AAP will be published for a thirty-day public comment period beginning on March 21, 2014 and ending on April 21, 2014 and will be made available at the City Clerk’s Office and will also be posted online at www.san-marcos.net. Upon request, these documents will be made available in a format accessible to persons with disabilities. The public is encouraged to review these documents and provide comments.

I believe that all of you are interested in providing transparent government. And we all know that when a four-hour City Council meeting results in just a few pages of minutes — because they’re not transcripts — there is a whole lot more than what’s in the record. These recordings are also unique, irreplaceable history for understanding the actions of the Council.

This should be an easy one. I assume there are at least two of you in favor of providing more information to everyone and that means you could get this on the agenda quite quickly — and get those meetings back online. We have the right to see and hear what happened at City Council meetings where important votes have been taken that determine the future of the City. And during the election season rather than take the word of any candidate on what they said or how they acted, we could watch the broadcasts –unless the City Council chooses to lock them away or destroy them altogether.

It’s up to you Mayor Abed, Deputy Mayor Diaz, Councilman Gallo, Councilman Masson and Councilman Morasco. I urge you all to take this simple step toward making Escondido government more transparent. Sincerely.

The City Council makes the following findings in support of the extension and continued application of the temporary moratorium regulating land use within the City: (a) The City has adopted a Land Use Element to its General Plan and a Zoning Code (Title 20 of the San Marcos Municipal Code (“SMMC”)) 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 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 imposed, 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 continuing 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, an additional ten (10) months and fifteen (15) 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) 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) Consistent with California law, on January 28, 2014, the City adopted Ordinance No. 2014- 1388, an urgency interim ordinance that imposed a 45-day moratorium prohibiting any uses that may be in conflict with the contemplated regulation of Wireless Facilities. Pursuant to Government Code Section 65858(a), that ordinance was approved by not less than a four-fifths vote of this City Council. Pursuant to Government Code Section 65858(a), the City Council may extend the interim ordinance, 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. (g) Additional bases for the extension of the temporary moratorium:

March 20, 2014 • Page 17

a. City staff prepared a draft ordinance which was considered by the City Council. After receipt of public comments and Council direction on the draft, Staff needs additional time to study affected issues and to supplement and revise the draft, as well as to obtain input from citizens, the industry, and City experts prior to taking the further revised draft back to the Planning Commission and the City Council b. The City needs additional time to study, among other things, issues involving alternative technology that affects the size and required camouflage and location of equipment, equipment collocation, removal and replacement at existing locations. c. It is prudent to extend the moratorium for ten months and fifteen days because the City cannot predict the precise time within which a public workshop and required public hearing can be held, and because there are a limited number of extensions allowed by law. However, it is currently anticipated that the process by which the new ordinance will be considered and adopted and this moratorium terminated or repealed will likely occur well within the extension period. SECTION 2. Adoption 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 existing applications and 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. Within any nonresidential zone on a site that contains a legally established residential use, exclusive of public rights of way;

3. Senior-Residential Zone, exclusive of public rights of way; 4. Ridgeline Protection and Management Overlay Zone, exclusive of public rights of way; 5. Vacant land; and 6. Environmentally sensitive habitat

SECTION 5. Temporary Moratorium.

(a) Except as described in Section 6 of this Ordinance, notwithstanding other existing Zoning or Municipal Code provisions and regulations of the City, there is hereby established throughout the City a temporary moratorium prohibiting any permitting and approval of any application with respect to Wireless Facility in the Affected Locations, including but not limited to applications for zone clearances, variances, conditional use permits, encroachment permits, special use permits, planned development permits, building permits, electrical, mechanical, or plumbing permits, or use and occupancy permits as to a new or existing co-location site, for any: 1. installation of a Wireless Facility; 2. change to an existing Wireless Facility not necessary to maintain its current functionality as previously permitted by the City; 3. relocation of a Wireless Facilities; or 4. any combination thereof.

(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.

The Puppy Coalition Needs Dedicated Volunteers! The Paper • Page 20 • March 20, 2014

Volunteers who have an abiding passion for dogs and puppies...

We’re looking for volunteers, male or female, young or old, who have an abiding passion for dogs and puppies, who want to end the senseless euthanasization of puppies and dogs who have done nothing wrong except run out of kennel time, and: a. b.

Have experience with dogs and especially for certain breeds in which you have a specific interest. There are many dog rescue organizations for many different breeds. They ALL need help. Volunteers who have the skills to train other volunteers to go to training classes with our dogs (Saturdays) - to do modest leash training and basic commands. 1. To coordinate with trainers to assist in preparing more dogs for moving to a new home (this can be an experience that can generate fear in a puppy/dog if the recipients are not properly trained and the puppy/dog not properly conditioned.

c.

Daily Dog Walkers

e.

Regional Transporters - Volunteers to transport dogs for one leg of the journey out of foster homes to adopter homes.

d.

f.

g. h.

Foster Homes. Volunteers to set up Foster Clubs for folk who are willing to foster dogs for a limited period of time. To help find foster homes and adoptive homes. To help set up a faster placement of dogs needing homes.

Voluntters with the experience necessary to do Home Checks for those interested in adopting dogs going through our program.

Volunteers with ideas for Fund Raisers/Event Planners. To assist in fund-raising efforts to provide the money necessary to make a lot of these goals happen. To come up with creative, innovative fund raising ideas. Volunteers willing and able to meet with legislators at the city, county, state and/or federal level - to push for legislation designed to control breeders and how they handle, breed, and market puppies and dogs. (One of our goals is to put the Puppy Mills out of business! They are responsible for more misery and suffering by puppies and dogs than you can imagine... and they operate under lax enforcement of existing state and federal law.) 1. You will have the chance to lobby city legislators to pass an ordinance to prohibit the retail sale of puppies and dogs within city limits, and shut down the stores that feed the puppy mill market. You can help pass legislation needed to change the rules so puppies and dogs have a reasonable chance at a fair life, 2. To help educate the public about the need the neutering and spaying programs. 3. Arrange for distribution of flyers, locally, online, to get the word out. 4. Talk to civic and service clubs to enlist their support and financial assistance.

We need this help yesterday. But we need to get started now!
