Alexandra Melnick is undeniably a beautiful woman.
Fashion model, movie star beautiful.
But behind that pretty face is a ton of worry, anxiety, fear and concern.
You see, Alexandra Melnick is a Marine. She served from 2009 through 2013, earned the rank of Corporal . . . joined the Marine Corps for the education benefits, hoping to obtain college tuition and support through the Corps upon her completion of her term of service. And she wanted the experience.
She got plenty of experience, she’ll be getting her college education.
She deployed to Afghanistan where she saw plenty of combat in Helmland Province, one of 34 provinces in Afghanistan . . . and one of the hottest combat zones. Her MOS (military occupational speciality) is 35.31 . . . which is military-speak for Motor Transport.
She drove equipment up to seven tons in weight . . . and while she was in the midst of many firefights and close to many IED (improvised explosive devices) detonations, she managed to return without substantial physical injury after nine months of service during the time period of 2011-2012.
She did not return totally undamaged, however. She sustained a back injury for which she is receiving therapy. She, like the majority of Marines returning from heavy combat duty, also suffers from both PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder) and TBI (traumatic brain injury). She has been rated as 90% disabled and is receiving ongoing treatment by the Veteran’s Administration. Our Hidden Valley Kiwanis Club has sponsored “Operation Hero” for the past six or seven years. Four times a year we invite Wounded Warriors to come in and tell their stories.
Almost every single trooper, Marine or Army, comes back from a combat zone with PTSD, The Paper - 760.747.7119
and a fairly large number with TBI.
While Alexandra is a single woman, she is engaged to a Marine, and her fiance’ helps look after her and assist her in adapting to post-combat life.
But her biggest post-combat support came from Kai, her service dog that she was assigned. A beautiful German Shepherd who was devoted to her, the two became inseparable. Kai had been trained in all the areas a PTSD service dog needed to know to protect his human.
Kai was always there, always in a protection mood. Kai would stand between Alexandra and any approaching stranger or person outside the known ‘inner circle’ of trusted family and friends. Kai and Alexandra loved one another. Devoted to each other. Spent every day together. And then . . . and then, one day, Kai was gone.
It was the day after Thanksgiving, November 28, 2014. “I had been gone just for Thanksgiving and was informed that Kai was not in the house or

the backyard. I live in Vista, by 76 and College area in a gated community. I checked the shelters and nothing. He is chipped but not wearing a collar (since he was home he didn't need one).” Upon hearing the news that Kai was missing, Alexandra’s heart and spirits sank to the depths. Already filled with anxiety, fear and depression from PTSD, the impact now became even greater as her companion, her protector, her beloved Kai was nowhere to be found. Had he been stolen? Had he somehow gotten out of the yard and wandered about, looking for

have pooled enough funds that there is a $5000 reward posted for Kai’s return.
Alexandra weighed every conceivable scenario as to where he might have gone, where he might be, where he might have been taken to.
“I want to personally say thank you to everyone and other German Shepherd owners. I apologize if you and your german shepherd get stared at or approached because people may think your dog is Kai. My pup is STILL missing and so many family, friends, and even strangers, are out looking for Kai. I just need Kai back in my life. Desperately.”
Alexandra, and strangers, thinking he was a stray picked him up?
As each day wore on with no trace of Kai, the anxiety built. She needs Kai to come home.
Kai is a 1 1/2 year old German Shepherd.
He loves to play outside, loves the dog park and is very friendly. Kai wants to be returned to his USMC Veteran Mommy every bit as much as she is frantically hoping that he will be returned to her.
She spends every waking moment searching for Kai. She has passed out over 1,600 flyers, hoping someone, anyone, within the public community may see Kai and alert her and/or the authorities. She checks all the animal shelters regularly and continually searches all the neighborhoods possible. She and her friends and family
Give Us This Day Our Daily Chuckle This week, a compendium of wit, wisdom and neat stuff you can tell at parties. Enjoy! The Church Dinner:
A group of friends from the Cottonwood Church wanted to get together on a regular basis, socialize, and play games. The lady of the house was to prepare the meal.
When it came time for Al and Jean to be the hosts, Jean wanted to outdo all the others. She decided to have mushroom-smothered steak, but mushrooms are expensive.
She then told her husband, "No mushrooms. They are too expensive."
He said, "Why don't you go down in the pasture and pick some of those mushrooms? There are plenty in the creek bed."
I am a Marine war veteran on a mission and I won’t give up until I find you and Kai.
Alexandra and her friends and supporters have done everything in their power to find Kai; daily/nightly searches, posting thousands of flyers, scouring the webs, and contacting the local news. Kai could be anywhere at this point. Alexandra will stop at nothing to find her best friend. Leads are shrinking and help is needed. Please share this story to help bring him home.
Kai is STILL missing. He has been missing almost five months now!
In addition to the images of Kai posted on the cover and within this story, Kai has a very distinct identifying mark ... two black dots on his tongue. You may access several Internet links for additional information on Kai and Alexandra. Go here:

She said, "No, some wild mushrooms are poison." He said, "Well, I see varmints eating them and they're OK."
So Jean decided to give it a try. She picked a bunch, washed, sliced, and diced them for her smothered steak.
Then she went out on the back porch and gave Ol' Spot (the yard dog) a double handful. Ol' Spot ate every bite. All morning long, Jean watched Ol' Spot, and the wild mushrooms didn't seem to affect him, so she decided to use them.
The meal was a great success, and Jean had even hired a helper lady from town to help her serve. After everyone had finished, they relaxed, socialized, and played "42" and dominoes. About then, the helper lady came in and whispered in Jean's ear. She said, "Mrs. Williams, Ol' Spot is dead."
Jean went into hysterics. After she finally calmed down, she called the doctor and told him what had happened. The doctor said, "That's bad, but I think we can take care of

Alexandra: “I just want to give a shoutout to whoever has Kai (if anyone even has him) that I will not stop looking for him. We are searching for him everywhere, including across state lines. We will find him! We have contacts and followers in ever state and our flyers are going national. Please, if you have him, drop him off somewhere safe like a dog park, or animal shelter.
it. I will call for an ambulance, and I will be there as quickly as possible. We'll give everyone enemas, and we will pump out everyone's stomach. Everything will be fine. Just keep them calm." Soon they could hear the siren as the ambulance was coming down the road. The EMTs and the doctor had their suitcases, syringes, and a stomach pump. One by one, they took each person into the bathroom, gave them an enema, and pumped out their stomach.
The scene was not pretty. After the last one was finished, the doctor came out and said, "I think everything will be fine now," and he left. They were all looking pretty weak, sitting around the living room.
About this time the helper lady came in and whispered to Jean, "You know, that fellow that run over Ol' Spot never even stopped." THE BLONDE MAN HAS FINALLY ARRIVED

Man About Town
Remember back in the ‘good old days’ when doctors actually made house calls?
Yep. It actually happened. You would call the doctor about an ailment or injury and he or she would come to your home to treat you.
Wouldn’t it be great if we could jump into a Time Machine and go back to those “good old days?” Wait! What’s this? A doctor who makes house calls in this day and age? For real? Yep.
Dr. Gary Loos, one of North County’s finest chiropractors, makes house calls! Whether it’s a bad back that makes
that bought the old Escondido Country Club property and sought to develop it, only to be stymied by what was ruled an illegal rezoning.
Fresh off his victory in Superior Court, Michael Schlesinger, the principal of Stuck in the Rough, LLC., has indicated a willingness to compromise and turn the country club area into a highly desirable residential area.
The city has to decide if they’re willing to do that or incur additional legal costs and appeal the court decision. The court invalidated a 2013 city ordinance that changed the designation of the site from residential to permanent open space. So far, the city has not made a decision.
Because of that rezoning issue by the city, Schlesinger sued the city over the designation, alleging the ordinance violated the law and was an illegal “taking” of his property. Judge Earl H. Mass sided with the developer on the first claim. The Escondido council — after meeting in closed session Wednesday with City Attorney Jeff Epp — issued a statement saying it would “continue

Last week he and I were sipping our coffee and solving all of the problems of the world (as we do once, twice a month) when along comes Marcia Huls, the lovely wife of Pastor Huls. We invited her to join us but, no, she had far more important things to do than to sit down with a couple of old fellas and pass the time of day. Like shopping, for instance.
A few minutes later, retired principal and educator, Royce Moore, happened by. He joined us for coffee and the stories flowed.
A few minutes later, Sam Logan, Major Market’s CEO from the corporate office in Fallbrook stopped by and we had a nice chat. It was Sam who was the inspiration for the “Sam’s Fish Market” at Major Market. Loads of fine fish, lob-
Letters to the Editor Adoptions Story
The recent article about adoptions hit a note with me. Seventy years ago, I was one of those bounced around kids. Knowing what that was like, my current wife of 47 years and I had a girl, and then 4 years later, adopted a four year old girl from a Korean orphanage and two years later, a 5 year old Korean girl that had been removed from a home in Colorado, and two years after that a 5 year old Korean/Black boy that had been removed from a home in Oregon. For those of you that are concerned about adopting older children, let me say that we were told of negative reports about the last two from the former parents. The boy has put 14 years in as a Marine and is now in the Army reserves and married a
ster, crab, all kinds of tasty seafoods. He’s also the inspiration behind the two big Surf n Turf Specials Major Market holds . . . erecting a big tent, cooking up fine steaks and tasty lobster . . . all at family bargain prices. I never miss them. Twice a year I gorge myself on those lobsters . . . and now I find I have Sam to thank for that. One day, another retired pastor, Tom Fry, stopped in and joined us for coffee. As you may be aware, both Pastor Huls and Fry are regular contributors to The Paper and “The Pastor Says . . .” weekly commentaries from four of North County’s finest pastors. The others being Pastor Hal Seed from Oceanside’s New Song Community Church and Pastor Sam Brumit from Mission 316 in San Marcos.
I look forward to those coffee klatches that Pastor Huls and I share. On a whim, he’ll call me or I’ll call him and say something to the effect . . . “sure seems a good time to have a cup of coffee with an old pal,” followed by, “I’ll meet you there in 20 minutes.” We’ll often spend a good hour or more doing nothing more than ‘guy talk.’ Usually, we manage to solve the world’s problems within that hour.

She and her husband are teachers. I am also writing this letter to let you know that there is an organization you might not be aware of.

Good friends and long time advertisers with The Paper, Mike and Pam Reilly learned this past week that their son, 36 year-old Michael Jason Reilly, passed away while in hospital for observation. As you can imagine, the family is devastated at their loss. Young Mike leaves behind his wife, Erika, and children, Samantha, 9 month, Hunter, 3, Johnathan 7, and Eric, 9. Mike loved music, had lots of pals, and many great admirers. Theirs was a close knit family.

Muldoon lived alone in the Irish countryside with only a pet dog for company. One day the dog died, and Muldoon went to the parish priest and asked, 'Father, my dog is dead. Could ya' be saying' a mass for the poor creature?'
Father Patrick replied, 'I'm afraid not; we cannot have services for an animal in the church. But there are some Baptists down the lane, and there's no tellin' what they believe. Maybe they'll do something for the creature.' Muldoon said, 'I'll go right away Father. Do ya' think $5,000 is enough to donate to them for the service?'
Father Patrick exclaimed, 'Sweet Mary, Mother of Jesus! Why didn't ya tell me the dog was Catholic?” Donation Father O'Malley answers the phone. 'Hello, is this Father O'Malley?'
'It is!' 'This is the IRS. Can you help us?' 'I can!' 'Do you know a Ted Houlihan?' 'I do!' 'Is he a member of your congregation?' 'He is!' 'Did he donate $10,000 to the church?' 'He will.' Pest Control
A woman was having a passionate affair with an Irish inspector from a pest-control company. One afternoon they were carrying on in the bedroom together when her husband arrived home unexpectedly.
'Quick,' said the woman to the lover, 'into the closet!' and she pushed him in the closet, stark naked. The husband, however, became suspicious and after a search of the bedroom discovered the man in the closet. 'Who are you?' he asked him. 'I'm an inspector from Bugs-BGone,' said the exterminator.
'What are you doing in there?' the husband asked.’ 'I'm investigating a complaint

studying the legal options which are available following Judge Maas’ decision last week.”
Dick Daniels, a spokesman for Schlesinger’s Stuck in the Rough LLC, said recently the proposal will probably be the 270-home compromise the developer recently floated to city leaders. That’s several hundred homes fewer than Schlesinger had initially wanted to build at the site. The second part of Schlesinger’s lawsuit — alleging that the open-space designation amounted to an illegal “taking” of his property — is still ongoing. He is seeking millions of dollars in damages.
There is considerable talk between attorneys for both sides that suggest there may well be a compromise in the works. Reason? Given the ruling of the court, the question of a “taking” is problematic because Schlesinger is now able to submit development plans. If the city chose to pursue litigation on the taking issue, they might well prevail, however they would spend considerable legal fees to litigate the matter, over and above the $500,000 they have already spent. If they should lose, then

Schlesinger’s damage claims could well run into the millions of dollars. That decision would likely be appealed as well.
While this would be attractive to the law firms involved, Schlesinger has said “the only winners in this dispute are the lawyers.” After Schlesinger bought the golf course in late 2012 and shut it down a few months later, he originally suggested building more than 600 homes on the 110-acre golf course. Residents living in the area were furious and gathered enough signatures on petitions to place on the ballot an initiative declaring the golf course permanent open space. Rather than put the initiative on the ballot, the council caved in to public pressure and adopted the initiative as law. Schlesinger then began his

own campaign and placed on the November ballot an initiative that would have overturned the council’s actions and allowed him to build 430 homes on the property. Voters turned him down by a large majority. Then came the court ruling and we now look at Schlesinger’s proposal.
Schlesinger says he would put 270 homes on lots ranging from 7,000 to 15,000 square feet, with the average lot being 9,500. It also calls for a private clubhouse and pool; a buffer of 70 feet on average between new and existing homes; 26 acres of open space that primarily would be retaining ponds; and 4.5 miles of trails along the perimeter of the land.
Schlesinger has said the larger homes would raise property values in the community.

Saluting the Veteran’s Association of North County (VANC)
We owe a debt to our veterans that can never be repaid. For over two hundred years, our military has defended this great nation in war and in peace. When the need arises, our service men and women have always risen to challenge, guaranteeing our liberty and security at great cost to themselves and their families. They have never failed us. In the aftermath of war, however, sometimes we fail them. That’s why groups like the Veteran’s Association of North County (VANC) are so important.
VANC is a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization of veterans helping other veterans. VANC works with its partner organizations and social services to resolve issues specific to each veteran and manages that solution to a positive conclusion for each individual.

Located at 1617 Mission Avenue in Oceanside, VANC service territory includes all of North County from Hwy. 56 to the Riverside line and east to the Imperial County line. This service area includes Camp Pendleton with its 35,000 active-duty Marines. VANC provides job placement services, education, training and counseling for all veterans, including active duty military seeking to transition to civilian life.
VANC specialists can also help veterans navigate Veterans Administration bureaucracy, and provide badly needed direction and solutions to vexing problems. A quick phone call to VANC is often the first step toward eliminating months of red tape. Consequently, I take great pride in saluting the Veterans Association of North County and the work they do to help those who have risked everything to secure our freedom.

He was a President at a time when the United States was in desperate need of leadership. Behind the scenes Franklin Delano Roosevelt arguably made more arbitrary decisions without Congressional approval than any other President in history.
Roosevelt was born Jan. 30, 1882, to a prominent New York family and became commonly known by his initials. FDR served as the 32nd President of the United States. He was a cousin of President Theodore Roosevelt as well as his wife, Eleanor Roosevelt.
After returning to political life at the 1924 Democratic National Convention, Roosevelt was asked by Gov. Alfred Smith to run for Governor of New York in the 1928 election. Roosevelt served as a reform governor from 1929 to 1932. He defeated incumbent President Herbert Hoover in 1932, at the depth of the Great Depression. During World War II, Roosevelt worked closely with British Prime Minister Winston Churchill in leading the western Allies against Nazi Germany, Fascist Italy and the Empire of Japan.

Escondido, CA—In a 2002 issue of Neurosurgical Focus, a peerreviewed article was published by a Dr. Michael D. Martin, MD et al. in which the third sentence states: “The disc itself is active tissue that contains significant mechanisms for self-repair.” That article was published by a neurosurgeon and written directly for neurosurgeons.
“The Disc Itself Is Active Tissue...”
So what does that really mean to us? It tells us that the disc itself does have a God-given ability to heal and repair if provided the proper mechanisms for self-healing. There is a specific mechanism inherent in each of the spinal discs called the “pump mechanism of disc nutri-tion” (see Fig 1). When this mechanism is not working properly, the spinal discs will begin to die causing bulges, herniations, and eventually spinal stenosis.
The spinal disc is one of the very few tissues in the body that does not have a direct blood supply for circulation. The only way that the disc gets the circulation of water, oxygen and nutrients for self-repair is via this specific disc pump mechanism. What happens when you decrease cir-culation in any type of tissue, whether it be animal tissue, plant tissue or human tissue? Exactly, it begins to become weak and begins to degenerate.
Symptoms Are NOT The Problem
Now the symptoms of pain, numbness,

brown leaves are the plant’s problem? Of course not, the leaves turning brown is just a condition that is telling you that there is something wrong with the plant. The plant is unhealthy and needs water and nutrients. You could spray paint the leaves green but it just covers up the condition. The underlying problem still exists and will continue to produce brown leaves until you fix the actual problem. and tingling that most experience with bulging, herniated or degenerative discs are NOT the problem. The definition of a symptom: “something that indicates the existence of something else.” It is just like the dashboard of your car telling you that something is wrong (brake lights out, engine needs checked, overheating, etc.) Those lights that appear in your car dash are NOT the problem. You can remove the lights surgically or put a piece of duct tape over the lights but the problem will NOT be fixed...the problem is still present.

He will sit down with you and go over your condition with you in complete detail. You will know exactly what is causing all your pain (or other symptoms).
In your spine, when the pump mechanism of disc nutrition fails, the disc will begin to de-generate and become weak. This weakness in the disc is what produces the bulging, herniated, and degenerative discs.
The treatment that is provided at Dr. Heilman’s Spine and Neuropathy Care Center in Escondido is revolutionary and is specifically designed to artificially re-create the pump mechanism in the discs which allows the spinal discs to heal and repair. The best part of the treatment is that it uses no drugs, no injections, and no surgery. Plus it’s painless and many patients relax and fall asleep while undergoing the treatment. The amount of treatment needed to allow the discs to heal and repair varies from person to person and can only be determined after a detailed neurological and orthopedic evaluation. We do NOT accept everyone for treatment and will let you know if we can accept your case for treatment.

In 1937, a bipartisan Conservative Coalition prevented Roosevelt from packing the Supreme Court and he blocked all proposals for major liberal legislation and abolished many of the relief programs when unemployment problems vanished during the War.
Most of the regulations on business continued in effect until they ended about 1975–1985, except for the regulation of Wall Street by the still existing Securities and Exchange Commission. Along with several smaller programs, major surviving programs include the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, and the Security & Exchange Commission of 1933, and Social Security in 1935. As World War II loomed after 1938, Roosevelt gave strong diplomatic and financial support to China and Great Britain. His goal was to make America the "Arsenal of Democracy," which would supply munitions to the Allies.
With very strong national support, Roosevelt asked Congress to declare war on Japan and Germany after the sneak Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941. He personally supervised the U.S. economy to support the Allied war effort. In 1942 Roosevelt ordered the internment of 100,000 Japanese American civilians, one of his most controversial executive orders.
Roosevelt approved the development of the world's first atomic bomb, which changed the world forever. During the War, unemployment dropped to 2 percent and the economy grew as millions of people moved into war production jobs. Some 16 million men and 300,000 women in military service. But, Roosevelt's health seriously declined as the War continued. He died April 12, 1945, three months into his
fourth term at the age of 62. Germany surrendered a month later.
Roosevelt dominated the American political scene during the 12 years he was President. He orchestrated the realignment of voters that created the Fifth Party System. Roosevelt's New Deal Coalition united labor unions, big city machines, white ethnics, African Americans, and rural white Southerners. His work also influenced the later creation of the United Nations. Roosevelt is consistently rated by scholars as one of the top three U.S. Presidents, along with Abraham Lincoln and George Washington.

stage thriller, “Passage Into Fear,” to the San Marcos Civic Center’s Hearth Theatre on April 10, 11, and 12. "Passage Into Fear" is inspired by noir classics like Alfred Hitchcock's "The Lady Vanishes" and "Strangers on a Train" and Agatha Christie's "Murder on the Orient Express." The play, set in 1917 during the waning days of World War I is being presented in conjunction with a series of the 100-year observances of the Great War taking place not only in the San Diego area but across the globe. This same production group brought last year's hit production of "Scrooge" ("Mr. Scrooge & Mr. Dickens") to San Marcos (and will again Dec. 2015). The play’s producer, Charles Carr says “Complete free meals and individual food items are gifts from local sponsors. No catches, no gimmicks. And your ticket price directly benefits the San Marcos VFW’s Veterans’ Relief Fund to help local vets in times of financial need. It’s a win-win for everyone!” Ticket prices are a fraction of what you would expect to pay for a quality production, thanks in large part to a generous grant from Supervisor Bill Horn. Prices are $10/general; $7 for children/seniors/military. Performances are at 7pm on Friday and Saturday, April 10 and 11, with a 2pm matinee on Sunday, April 12, at the Hearth Theatre in the heart of the San Marcos Civic Center.

fact, they had not really changed. Wolfe was right, you can’t go home again, and expect it to be like it was.
Church is a little like that. But Easter isn’t. Church changes. There is a different pastor, newer music, a different dress code, but the message is still the same.
Pastor Tom Fry, Retired, Church of the Nazarene Home for Easter
Easter is almost here and you might be thinking about going to church on Easter Sunday, even if you haven’t been for some time.
Author Thomas Wolfe wrote a novel, “You can’t go home again.” That title became a catch phrase in America meaning that you can’t return to old places or old ways and expect them to be and feel the same.
Maybe you’ve had that experience. Returning to your home town or an old school and wondering why things were so different, when in
I remember walking into my elementary school after I had been to college. I wondered why the halls were so narrow and why they had lowered the drinking fountains almost to the ground. It was different. But I found Room 10 and there was the teacher I had had in fourth grade. Still teaching fourth graders the same things she had taught me. Some things change, but the important things do not. Church may look different this Easter than you remember, but the message will still be the same. “He is risen. He is risen, indeed.”
Church is one place where you can go home again. Go home for Easter. You will be welcomed. You will feel at home. The Good News has not changed.

She was jailed for more than a year, but eventually raised $2 million to bail out in September 2013, about a year before her first trial began. That trial resulted in an acquittal for first-degree murder; the jury deadlocked on the lesser counts, but leaned toward acquittal for seconddegree murder. If Harper is convicted of second-degree murder and gunuse allegations, she faces 40 years to life in prison. Harper, a mother of three, testified during the first trial that her husband was abusive and

San Marcos • Mayor Jim Desmond Conservation Water Issues Important for Coming Summer
from the normal summer schedule can save 15-25 gallons for each minute; or eliminate one irrigation cycle per week and save up to 250 gallons per cycle.
This summer, residents should consider planting low-water use plants and reducing turf area. Reducing each irrigation cycle for lawn or landscape by 1-3 minutes
For more water saving tips, please visit www.vwd.org.
Spring is finally here! At this time of year, homeowners begin preparing for summer by planting flowers and fertilizing lawns. But due to extreme water shortages, the Vallecitos Water District (VWD) is calling for heightened awareness and increased conservation efforts, especially outdoors.
To help reduce city water use, the City has turned off water fountains and splash pads, replaced old fixtures, and changed irrigation schedules. The City is also transitioning to drip irrigation and drought tolerant landscaping. To go the extra mile, the grass in front of the Civic Center will be replaced with low-water use grasses.

A body that was found near the car of a missing 76-year-old Temecula man is believed to be that of Robert Cricks.
As of this writing no official identification has been made but there is a high probability that the body is that of Cricks. Cricks had driven away from a Murrieta Restaurant, according to his wife. He had been

waiting in the running car when his wife went into a restaurant. He drove off before she could stop him.
Cricks had severe dementia and would not have been able to find his own home. Further, he did not have the key fob for the car so once he turned the engine off he would have been unable to restart it. Cricks had been missing since early last Thursday. On Monday of this week someone spotted his car on De Luz Road on the border of Fallbrook and Riverside County. Sheriff’s deputies responded, along with the ASTREA helicopter and the body was found around 5:45pm Monday. Authorities are awaiting confirmation of his identity by the County Medical Examiner.

How can I Find the Right PC for me? Part V
This is the final column in this series. Previously we discussed current technology and how it relates to specific user needs. We endorsed Windows 7 as the only reasonable OS (operating system) for a new PC. We discussed the fact that you cannot rely on information from commercial media nor can you trust the “technicians’ and sales personnel in the “Big Box” retailers to help you buy a PC that fits your home or business needs.
We explored the questions that help you decide whether to upgrade, trade-in or scrap your old PC. We discussed the things to consider when buying a new PC like data transfers, old programs compatibility,
The World of...
Patrick "Skip" Jacovino Integrity Mortgage Group Senior Mortgage Consultant
In our last column, we answered some of the most frequently asked questions about reverse mortgages. In this column, we will wrap up our 4 part introduction to reverse mortgages by hearing from someone who actually has a reverse mortgage … my father, Patrick Jacovino Sr. I asked him some questions about his experience and what his thoughts were about his reverse mortgage. Here is what he had to say: Me : How has the reverse mortgage
flexibility in design and the configuration that gives you what you need without breaking the bank. We stressed getting enough power, memory, storage and features to be able to use all your applications most efficiently without spending money on power, memory, storage and features that have no impact on your applications. It’s all about “bang for the buck.” To make good decisions you need good information. Of all the “major appliances” we use in our homes and offices, the PC is the one we understand the least. It’s not hard to get up to speed when you shop for a refrigerator, oven, dishwasher, clothes washer, dryer, TV set or even a car. Most of these things cost a lot more than a PC but PC applications cover an incredible range of human activities. Most of us spend far more time doing varied tasks on our PC than we do the simple tasks on our other appliances. It’s important to get what fits your needs. So who are you going to ask?
Businesses looking to upgrade their systems usually provide us with a list of the network requirements, applications software and other relevant data that helps us develop an optimized specification for their new systems. We can do the same thing with home
changed your life? Pat: “It has allowed me a lot more financial freedom than I had before I got it. Before the reverse, I had a $900 mortgage payment on my limited pension and social security income. With the price of everything rising all the time, my fixed income does not go nearly as far as it used to. As you know Skip, I have been working a part time job for a few years now to make ends meet and not keep dipping into my savings when something happens..like a house repair or a car repair. Before the reverse, if the hot water heater broke, it was very stressful, because I know that my money was very tight as far as a monthly budget and I knew that it was going to be money that I would have to try to work more hours to get back. It felt like at times I could not keep up with the expenses. Now, with the reverse mortgage, I still work, but the money I earn, I am able to put into savings…which was something I was not able to do before. I mean, I haven’t even thought about using the credit line I got with the reverse mortgage because now I am able to save and don’t really need the credit line.” Me: So in other words, you have a credit line but don’t feel you need it right now? Pat: “Yeah, exactly. It is nice to know it is there, but right now I am putting that $900 that used to go to my monthly mortgage straight into my savings. That way, when something unexpected happens, I can go to the savings and not use the credit line. It is a great feeling to be able to put money away in savings again like I used to before I retired.” Me: Is there anything about the reverse mortgage that you don’t like? Pat: “Yeah…that I didn’t do it sooner! (he laughs). Seriously, though, I know I am accruing inter-
users. All we need to know is what they plan to use the computer for. We review each feature and option with the customer. We tell them what each feature does, how it helps and how much it costs. The user then makes the informed decisions that get them exactly what they need. How come we can do this for our customers and the big box stores can’t? It’s because they can’t customize their systems to fit your needs. They have to sell you what’s on the shelf. We can sell you what you need.
a user will bring in a specification written for them by their “computer genius” grandkid. We have to break it to them gently that the two thousand dollar gamer that little Arthur III configured for them might be a bit of an overkill.
est on the loan that gets tacked on, but that does not worry me. I am more concerned with the comfort and quality of my life now. I can’t take the house with me when I go…what do I care what I owe on it when I go?” (laughs again) Me: Well, true..and we kids don’t really need your home equity either, we are all fairly well established. But you still will have some good equity in the house for the foreseeable future. Pat: That is good to know, but as I said, I am more concerned with being able to enjoy the time I have left. I want to be able to take my grandkids out to do stuff and not have to worry about the money part. Now, I can. I feel like I can spoil them…and myself too. I am thinking about taking a trip to Irelend. Want to go?” (laughs again) Me: You bring up Ireland all the
time Pop..let’s stop talking about it and just do it! Pat: We are going to this time…I have the means to be serious about it now.” Me: Because of the reverse? Pat: Yep…I am very glad I took your advice son and just did it. It has been a game-changer.” Me: Well, even an old dog can learn a new trick. Pat: Who you calling old? (He whacks me on the head and laughs again)
Some users know exactly what they want and we can quote their specification. Sometimes
The bottom line is that unless you are a computer professional you need help when you buy a PC. There are few places where you can get the kind of help that ensures that you make the best decisions for your home and business portable and desktop PCs. The Computer Factory is one of them.
In our next column, I will discuss using a mortgage refinance for debt-consolidation. This is becoming prevalent again as more and more people use credit cards to survive in our volatile economy. As always, contact me anytime with any questions or to check interest rates…there is never a charge or obligation.

The Doctor is In! related cancer. Unlike tobacco/alcohol which occur mostly in the bottom back of the mouth and the side edges of the tongue, HPV lesions are buried deep within the tissues, possibly below the membrane at the base of the tongue. Oral Cancer - No Longer "an old-person's disease"
Today’s dentists must adapt to what is known as two distinct, separate causes of oral cancer. Tobacco/alcohol use which is traditionally identified as a leading risk factor for the development of oral cancer and the infection of HPV-16 which is rising rapidly especially in the younger ages that are non-smokers between the ages of 25-50.
Oral cancer is on the rise in all age groups regardless of tobacco and alcohol decline due to the spread of a particular strain of human papilloma virus, HPV16. In fact, "HPV may contribute to the development of approximately 20% to 30% of all oral cancer cases" worldwide and 40 to 80% of all oral cancer cases in the US. Recent data tells us the HPV related oral cancer is more elusive than the tobacco/alcohol
HPV can cause oral cancer with no signs until the disease is very advanced.
Most Americans will have some version of HPV in their lifetimes. The HPV virus infects at least 50% of all people who have had sex at some time in their lives. It is "likely that changes in sexual behaviors of young adults over the last few decades and which are continuing to spread HPV and the cancer-potential versions of it." Of the 130 strains of HPV viruses, only a handful are potential cancer versions. HPV-16 is the one that causes cervical cancer in women and oral cancer as well. Of this HPV-16 most of us (99%) possess an immune system. Because HPV related oral cancer develop via transmission of HPV16 over moist epithelial cells, sexual contact, including but not limited to open mouth kissing and genital-oral contact, is a risk factor for HPV-related oral cancer. Other risk factors are autoimmune, inflammatory diseases of the mouth; periodontal disease:

diets lower in fruits and vegetables; and genetic predispositions such as inherited defects in genes contributing to DNA repair.
In order to do a thorough oral cancer screening it's imperative that your doctor do at least the following; 1.Extra-oral visual and tactile exami-
nation, including but not limited to the palpation of the neck. 2. Intra-oral visual and tactile examination. 3. Use of screening tools. 4. Asking patients appropriate and revealing questions and waiting for their responses. 5. Patient education, particularly provision of information on benefits of vaccinating against HPV
The following should be included in your dentist’s protocol: 1.Can you tell me about any swelling or pain you've experienced in your face, mouth, neck, tonsils or throat? 2. Any painless, non-moving firm bumps on your neck?
3. Mouth sour lasting more than two weeks? 4. Any oral bleeding? 5. Changes in taste? 6. Changes in voice sounds? 7. Changes in the surface of your mouths? 8. Problems with eating or swallowing? 9.Recent changes in weight? 10. Numbness or tingling in your face? 11. Recent changes in vision?
An answer to any of these questions may indicate a viral infection with HPV, and needs a further investigation. "The HPV positive group is the fastest growing segment of the oral population." One hundred people are diagnosed with oral cancer every day. Screening for oral cancer is all about saving lives Call The San Marcos Dental Center at 760 734-4311 and make an appointment today!
