My dogs are continually dragging deer bones into the yard. This has gone on pretty much since we lived here and had dogs.

I expected this during hunting season, but not all year round. Sure, some of the bones are old, but some are not. They also drag hides and portions of hides up too. If I'd saved them all, I could have made a goodsized Indian tipi out of them by now. They bring these home too, 12 months out of the year. Obviously, there's a lot of poaching going on around here.

I have never poached an animal out of season, and took a very dim view of those who did. But that was a long time ago, before my city attitude changed and I saw the light about how things work out here in the boondocks.

As I've mentioned before, this is a poor county. Anyone with any money works far away and commutes, like I did. But still there are a great many rural poor around these parts, and there are families that would not have meat on their dinner table without taking a deer now and then when no one is looking.

lived here I found evidence that someone had shot a deer on the far western edge of my property. I was out wandering around, still learning the place, all the hills and hollers, and how to find my way back to the house from them. Seriously, it wasn't easy at first. But I came upon a scene in the forest where a deer had obviously been shot. There was a blood trail and drag marks in the leaves and weeds. I followed them until they left my property. The trail continued over the rusty and brokendown old fence. I hopped it and kept following. It ended at the back yard of some neighbors-who I did not know at the time-and it was evident they were the guilty party.

I was furious. I was going to call the sheriff's office and report them, then remembered that under Indiana law, a state DNR Conservation Officer actually has more intrusive power than a sheriff or deputy. They can walk right into your home without a warrant under our law. They cannot look under beds or in closets, they cannot touch any of your electronics or anything else, but they do have the legal right to look in your freezer in the kitchen and take a quick, cur-

sory look around for another freezer, say, a big chest freezer in your basement. They can look in them, see how much deer meat you have on hand, and radio their office to see if you legally bagged two or three deer last season. If they find the meat and you haven't checked in a deer at one of their check-in stations, the meat is confiscated and given to charity and food banks, and your sorry butt is cuffed, stuck in the back of their Jeeps, and hauled off to jail. If you're caught poaching out in the woods by a C.O., they can also confiscate your firearm AND the vehicle you are driving. The judge generally imposes a pretty harsh fine when you're stood up before him, too. These laws vary a little from state to state in the wild, wild, Midwest, but they all work out about the same way. Deer poaching is a serious offense, and God help you if you're caught shooting at one from inside your car or truck stopped along the road. They drop a house on you then, and confiscate everything (and you will NOT get any of it back), and they don't put you IN jail, they put you UNDER the jail.

I was gonna teach this guy a lesson about poaching AND trespassing on my land.

But I was still new in these parts. I could look in the phone book and get the number for the sheriff, but couldn't find one for the local Conservation Officer. So I hopped in the truck and drove to the one man I trusted most in this strange new world by beloved old neighbor Steve Walk. Steve was a hillbilly's hillbilly, born in West Virginia, older than dirt, knew everyone for miles around, and over the years I came to realize he was also one of the most intelligent, wise, and practical men I had ever had the good fortune to meet. When I sat down in his kitchen, he could tell I was angry. I told him what I'd found and where the trail led to. I told him that I was going to ruin that guy's whole year. So--how do I call a C.O. out here? I was going to make life very, very problematic for that trespassing and poaching SOB.

Steve quietly listened to my rant, and began to pretend he was looking through some paperwork for the C.O.'s phone number. While he did so, he began talking about folks who where having trouble making ends meet. Had I noticed there were few very "well-to-do" families in this area? He admitted shooting a couple of extra deer himself every season--more

than he needed--and simply giving them to folks who were on tough times. "Some o' them folks, yuh know, have kids," he said. "I was hungry when I was a kid sometimes. Guess I never forgot that..."

He picked up another stack of papers and began fiddling with them. "Kids will eat anything. You know that. You've raised them yerself. But I think it's kinda pitiful when they don't have no meat in the house." I wasn't aware that my angry facial expression had changed. But Steve took note of it. He knew I wasn't a hard man and that I loved kids.

He handed me an ashtray. "Yer gonna drop that ash on my kitchen floor and get me in trouble with Elsie if you ain't careful," he grinned. Then he pulled out a handwritten number from his old phone book. "Yup, here it is!" He tore off a corner from a newspaper and carefully wrote the number down for me. But before he slid it across the table, he continued...

"I ain't surprised you don't know the family that lives

Give Us This Day Our Daily Chuckle This week, a compendium of wit, wisdom and neat stuff you can tell at parties. Enjoy! Vern’s Funeral

Vern works hard at the Phone Company. He spends two nights each week bowling and plays golf every Saturday.

His wife thinks he's pushing himself too hard, so for his birthday she takes him to a local Strip club. The doorman at the club greets them and says, "Hey, Vern! How ya doin?" His wife is puzzled and asks if he's been to this club before.

"Oh no," says Vern. “He's in my bowling league.”

When they are seated, a waitress asks Vern if he'd like his usual and brings over a Budweiser. His wife is becom-

where you followed the blood trail. His name's Tom and his wife is named Katie. Katie got that Alzheimer's disease, yuh know. Tom works odd jobs when his daughter is handy to come over and watch her mom, but she cain't do that all the time. Married, got her own kids now. Tom and Kate are old folks. They pretty much live on Social Security now, 'cept when Tom can find a little work under the table, so to speak. Didja ever notice how much land Tom has? 'Bout a halfacre. Jest enough fer some fruit trees in his front yard and they don't have any back yard to speak of." He laughed. "Hell, YOU'RE their back yard. Didn't ya notice how close yer fence was to their house? I had, but in my anger I'd paid no attention to that fact. Hell, I didn't know how much land they owned. And I didn't care ... at least then. But now I was listening to Steve.

"Tom's got his hands pretty full taking care of Katie. Does all the dishwashin' and cookin' and laundry. His daughter helps when she can, but she lives awful far away. In the fall I take my ladder over and help him pick all the fruit off his trees. Damned if I can figger it out, but Katie still knows how

ing increasingly uncomfortable and says, "How did she know that you drink Budweiser?"

"I recognize her, she's the waitress from the golf club. I always have a Bud at the end of the 1st nine, honey." A stripper then comes over to their table, throws her arms around Vern, starts to rub herself all over him and says... "Hi Vern. Want your usual table dance, big boy?" Vern's wife, now furious, grabs her purse and storms out of the club. Vern follows and spots her getting into a cab. Before she can slam the door, he jumps in beside her.

Vern tries desperately to explain how the stripper must have mistaken him for someone else, but his wife is having none of it.

She is screaming at him at the top of her lungs, calling him every four-letter word in the book..

The cabby turns around and says, 'Geez Vern, you picked up a real bitch this time.' VERN'S FUNERAL WILL BE HELD THIS COMING FRIDAY.

to can fruit. She just goes about it like nobody's business. That's kinda odd, ain't it? Sometimes she even remembers my name, sometimes she don't, but she still smiles because somehow she remembers me and Elsie are their friends. Elsie makes them pies sometimes. Oh boy, do they like her pies!"

By this time, it had entered my thick skull that perhaps these people did not need the wrath of God dropped upon them. They had enough trouble as it was. My body posture had even changed. I was no longer angry. I was seeing an impoverished couple, one seriously ill, the other doing his best to care for his wife, and both elderly and dirt poor. The faint stirrings of guilt had even began to enter my mind. I was going to call the law on people like that? What kind of a jerk would do such a thing? Then it hit me--I would. Or at least would have, had I not talked with Steve. "Well, anyhow, here's yer number fer the Conservation Officer. Took me a little while to find it..." Steve pushed the scrap of paper across his kitchen table towards me. I did not pick it up.

I paused for a long moment, then said, "Steve, I was just sitting here thinking. According to the Department of Natural Resources, the deer that cross our land don't belong to us, but actually belong to the state. Is that right?" He nodded quietly.

I looked at the number laying in front of me on his old kitchen table. "There's been a lot of times in my life when I've been an ass, Steve. But I don't think this is going to be one of them. Thanks for talking with me." And I stood up to leave. Following me to his door, Steve tucked the telephone number into my pocket.

"Yuh know, one o' these days you might really need one of these guys. Take this home and stick it to that bulletin board you got in yer kitchen. But I think yer doin' the right thing about not using it right now. Tom's just doin' his best, Kent. He don't mean no harm. And hell, you got what? A hundred and fifty times the land he does? Or more? And besides, like you said, them ain't our deer anyways." Then he leaned towards me and said in a stage

whisper, " 'Sides, I know you don't mind seein' a guy get one over on the gov'mint now and then either."

I had to laugh, and Steve laughed with me. We bid goodbye, and I did as he said--took the number that I hoped I would never need and tacked it to our bulletin board at home. When my wife noticed it and asked who it was for, I told her. And I told her if I was ever gone and she saw trespassers around the house to call them, THEN call the sheriff's office. Our men and women in the Indiana DNR's law enforcement division, the Conservation Officers, have full police powers and with our location they could respond probably faster than the sheriff's deputies. If they catch a young couple picking your wild flowers, they'll suggest they leave the area--and probably allow the girl to keep the flowers in her hand. But if they catch anyone up to serious mischief on your land, they can be decidedly unfriendly. Indiana is blessed with both good C.O.s and State Police. I think the college

requirement for either job has a lot to do with that. Years after this, the last time I saw Steve alive--just barely, dying from cancer--his family had all gathered around him. I'd stayed and talked to him for a long time. We'd joked off and on for years that we were going to build a moonshine still out here somewhere, something he eventually admitted to me he was quite adept at. It was time to say goodbye, and I could not bring myself to do it. Fighting back the tears, I simply walked over to the couch he was sitting on, knelt down, and told him when he "got over this and felt better" he and I would make that damned still, and it would be a good one. He smiled weakly and reminded me, " 'Member, Kent, it takes six bushels o' good corn to make one gallon of 'shine." And then wordlessly, I leaned over and hugged him. He hugged back, hard. I nodded to his family and managed to keep from crying until I got in my pickup to head for home. I don't know if you've ever had friends like this. I don't know if you're even aware that you do. But treasure them nonetheless, for when they are gone the empty spot they leave will never refill.

The Doctor is In! our blood pressure.

Your Mouthwash Can Give You High Blood Pressure!

In the past, the presence and metabolic activities of oral bacteria has been traditionally associated with negative health effects ranging from bad breath and cavities to more serious gum diseases like gingivitis and periodontitis as well as contributing to cardiovascular disease and stroke. However, new studies are beginning to show that certain amounts of bacteria present in our mouths are actually beneficial to our health. In fact, these bacteria may be a prime source in the process of converting nitrogen containing compounds back into nitric oxide in our blood which causes our smooth muscles to relax and lower

Recently, groups of researchers from the London School of Medicine and Dentistry, and the Department of Physiology and Pharmacology, Karolinska Institutet of Stockholm, Sweden, studied the effects of using a popular mouthwash prescribed by oral clinicians to drastically reduce and control the population of natural oral bacteria in their subjects mouths. Since the presence of oral bacteria is crucial in the initial step of converting nitrogen compounds into nitric oxide in our bodies, this greatly reduced the amount of nitric oxide. All these test subjects were healthy, non-smoking, disease free individuals who were placed on controlled healthy diets with low nitric acid producing foods. Each subject used the antiseptic mouthwash twice-daily. The results were AMAZING and a little disconcerting. After just 7 days, their urinary and plasma nitrogen levels were reduced significantly, and their oral nitrogen levels decreased almost 90%. More

Post Script

I have more Steve Walk stories, and poignant ones about his wife who passed away about five years before he did. I have no idea how old he was when he died. He told me riotous stories about his youth in West Virginia, the first time he got drunk, how not to blow a chimney through the roof of an old mountain house by setting the vents and dampers on a coal stove improperly (that was a genuine danger ofttimes). He ate a lot of venison because it was more or less free in this area. The last two deer he killed were standing in his front yard and he shot them with one round each from a .30-30 lever action that was about the same age as me. He could fix any kind of tractor, car, or truck until the advent of computer systems. After Elsie died, he began to drink a bit more. He had a magnificent way of avoiding the few local cops who patrol this area, amazing in its simplicity. Towards the end of her life, Elsie was on a home oxygen unit which required electricity to operate. Winter was coming on, and with it the chance of

importantly, their blood pressures (both systolic and diastolic) went up on an average of 3.3 mmHg and 2.2 mmHg respectively related to their drop in nitrogen levels. A direct cause and effect was drawn between the decrease in the presence of salivary nitrogen compounds, causing a decrease amount of circulating nitrogen compounds which in turn caused a decrease in the amount of nitric oxide available to the body, and thus, increased the test subjects blood pressures.

This study was a small study, but the results were dramatic and to be sure, future testing with larger groups will be necessary to clarify the relationship of blood pressure to the amount and type of bacteria in our mouths. What one should do is beware of using mouth-

periodic power outages. I told Steve I had a large deep cycle 12 volt battery that I would keep charged and a 350 watt DC/AC inverter. One savage winter night, about bedtime, the power failed. I was already up and grabbing everything I needed when the phone rang. Steve said Elsie had a 30minute "travel bottle" and she was breathing through that now. Then he said, "24 minutes left, Kent..."

A rather interesting story. To make it short, I plugged in her big home oxygen unit with three minutes to spare. It worked like a charm.

He was the best friend I ever had out here and I see no one surpassing him.

I miss him every day. Kent

As dentists we prescribe certain mouthwashes regularly for our patients with gum disease (periodontal disease) because the threat of heart attack or stroke is serious. However, for the majority of our patients, brushing and flossing with "periodic" use of mouthwashes appears to be the better regimen at the present time.

I got a good laugh at Arpaio's quote in your recent Daily Chuckle section, but not for the reason it was intended to. I am not a liberal, but I do know a straw man when I see one. Arpaio's characterization of liberal ideals is inaccurate and funny only because of its astonishing ignorance. I guess that to Joe, if you can't beat liberals with the facts, you just have to make up your own facts and lie about what liberals actually believe in. Arpaio's liberal bashing, and your willingness to print it, makes sane conservatives like myself look bad. Making up lies about the other side doesn't aid public discourse, nor does it help us find real solutions. Nor do you need to publish rambling and factually inaccurate letters like the one from Mary Calgaro.

paper. Spreading misinformation is, hopefully, not your goal. If an uneducated person compares our country to Nazi Germany and ignorantly claims that in the last 200 years American government has "outlasted all others," you don't have to print it. I understand that you don't write the letters to the editor, but you do decide which ones to print. I understand that some conservatives like to make harmless jokes about liberals, but when something claiming to be a newspaper does so, it ceases to be a newspaper and becomes something much less honorable.

This is nothing new for The Paper. I have read it for over a year now and the immature and inaccurate jokes about liberals have been there the whole time, as have the letters written by uneducated persons, which you decide to publish for no good reason. That is sad because your articles are fantastic and show no bias and never contain misinformation. So why shame your paper by printing lies and childish insults written by others? In the end you can print whatever you want. I just wanted you to know that there are con-

servatives out there, like myself, that don't want to see you sink that low. I'll keep reading The Paper, but I will also keep citing it as a laughing stock as long as you keep making it one. /s/Brandon Uhl Unknown city/state

During this week nearly 40 years ago, Vietnam was a war zone where thousands of lives were lost and many more were at risk, including orphaned babies. It was April 1975, the Vietnam War was near its end, North Vietnam had gained power, and thousands of children of Vietnamese-American descent were in danger of retaliation by the communists.

In response, President Gerald Ford made the heroic decision to dedicate $2 million and nearly 30 international flights to rescue more than 2,700 orphaned babies from Vietnam. The named was mission Operation Babylift and was led by members of the military, commercial airlines,

April 5th happens to be Ladybug Day at the San Diego Botanic Garden, from 10am to 12:30pm. Ladybugs may look delicate and pretty but they are a strong enforcer in the garden; they eat aphids and other plant pests, making them critical to a healthy garden.

Each year the Botanic Garden celebrates these beloved Beetles and teaches the community about other beneficial critters in our back yards. Children are welcome to wear their cutest ladybug or insect costume. There will be several activities throughout the garden during the day, including: Ladybug Search Teams from

any of these bills have now become more complicated. Since they would amend the constitution, a two-thirds vote in each house is required prior to their being submitted to the voters for final approval.

Unfortunately for supporters, recent events in the Senate have eliminated the Democratic “supermajority” necessary for passage of these constitutional amendments. Two Senators have taken leaves of absence due to ethics violations and it is unlikely that the “supermajority” will be re-assembled in time to pass any of these bills. Whatever the final outcome for the two Senators on leave, it appears that Proposition 13 protections for California’s taxpayers will remain in place, at least for now. Rest assured I will do everything in my power to protect Proposition 13 and the pocketbooks of California’s hardworking taxpayers.

Why not Escondido?

I was having breakfast the other day with a former San Marcos official and the subject of what makes cities different came up. He was justifiably proud, as I have been, of the strides the city has made during the last thirty plus years. Given the inextricable ties between the two cities, our conversation included comparisons between my soon to be former city of residence (San Marcos), and my new hometown of Escondido. We both acknowledged that San Marcos has been the beneficiary of not only very good leadership over the years, but a significant amount of luck. Much of that luck is due to timing.

While I was born in San Diego, my formative years were spent in the growing metropolitan Los Angeles-Orange County region of the mid-twentieth century. Because of the combination of weather, jobs, and geography, this region exploded with development and I had the opportunity to watch its effects, both positive and negative. For much of this period, San Diego, city and county, remained a sleepy, relatively benign area, with the first real impacts of growth beginning to show their effects in the late 1970s to early 1980s.

When growth did start to escalate, this entire region reacted with a collective mentality that was, in effect, set purposefully in the notion it would not become “another LA.” As a result, even though many in the development community rail against it---with some justification---this region has avoided many of the mistakes made in the early development of our neighbors to the north. In much the same way, San Marcos had been able to take into account the positives and the negatives of the much earlier development of the cities around it and make the effort to emulate the good while elim-

Historically Speaking by Tom Morrow

Sudetenland: Putin’s Playbook for Crimea

History can be strangely haunting the way it repeats. As I recently pointed out concerning the current Crimean controversy, Russia’s Vladimir Putin probably studied Adolf Hitler’s 1938 takeover of C z e c h o s l o v a k i a ’ s “Sudetenland” without firing a shot. Hitler made himself the advocate of some 800,000 ethnic Germans living in Czechoslovakia, triggering the "Sudeten Crisis.” On April 24, 1938, a group of Sudeten Germans demanded in an eight-point manifesto for the equality between them and the Czech people. Two months

Escondido city officials have announced that the downtown post office closure has been delayed indefinitely. Ths is a result of the U.S. Postal Service putting a moratorium on the many post office closures that have been planned to help reduce expenses.

The downtown Escondido office, located on Escondido Boulevard near City Hall, was selected for possible closure because it's considered a lower priority “retail” office where customers can buy stamps, send packages and rent post office boxes. But it doesn't house letter carriers.

later, the Czech government accepted those claims.

But that didn’t satisfy Hitler. He used Sudeten-German demands as an excuse for taking Czech territory. A Sudetenland area, with a portion known as Bohemia, was predominately peopled with residents of German heritage. As you’re aware of today’s news; that argument is being used by Putin for claiming Ukraine’s Crimea being mostly Russian heritage.

The 1938 controversy turned into a crisis threatening war, so on Sept. 15, British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain met with Hitler at Berchtesgaden, his southern Germany mountain retreat. They agreed to the cession of the Sudetenland; three days later, French Prime Minister Édouard Daladier also agreed. No Czechoslovak representative was invited to those discussions. The next week, on Sept. 22, Chamberlain met Hitler in Godesberg, Germany, to confirm the agreement. Hitler however, aiming to use the crisis as a pretext for war, now demanded not only the annexation of the Sudetenland but the immediate military occupa-

tion of the territories, giving the Czechoslovak army no time to adapt their defense measures to the new borders.

To achieve a solution, Italian dictator Benito Mussolini suggested a conference of the major European powers in Munich. On Sept. 29, Hitler, Daladier and Chamberlain met and agreed to Mussolini's proposal. The infamous agreement actually was prepared by Reichmarshal Hermann Goering. It has infamously gone down in history as the “Munich Agreement.” By accepting the pact, Hitler gained immediate occupation of the Sudetenland. On Sept. 30, the Czechoslovak government, though not party to the talks, promised to abide by the decision they had no say in.

The Sudetenland was relegated to Germany between Oct. 1 and Oct. 10, 1938. The next year on March 1939, the Czech

by Pat Mues

Rather than an analysis of numbers, I decided to make my own story part of this discussion, because I know mine is not uncommon.

More than a dozen years ago, my husband and I decided to move to So Cal from the East Coast. He was retiring and I was looking to spend time with my family; I grew up in Orange and San Bernardino counties and my family is here. My requirements were a town with a real downtown, not on an earthquake fault and halfway between OC and SD; my husband didn’t want to live on the Coast.

We came to Escondido for a weekend, had a fabulous dinner at 150 Grand (now Swami’s) and wandered around the historic district. We bought a house with lovely views and a garden of citrus trees and then decided to move downtown five years ago. I found a job six blocks from my house and worked there until the Museum closed. Today, we

part of Czechoslovakia was invaded by Germany, with a portion being annexed and the remainder turned into the Protectorate of Bohemia and Moravia. The Slovak part declared its independence from Czechoslovakia, becoming the Slovak Republic, a satellite state and ally of Nazi Germany.

Shortly after the Sudetenland annexation, the Jews living in the region were widely persecuted. As elsewhere in

Germany, many synagogues were set on fire and numerous leading Jewish citizens were sent to concentration camps. In later years, the Nazis transported up to 300,000 Czech and Slovak Jews.

Down through the years, we’ve all heard the phrase, “It’s another ‘Munich.’” It refers to that shameful pact signed in Munich resulting in Britain and France’s appeasement to Hitler, which allowed him take over a large portion of Czech territory. Six months later World War II began.

Upon his return to London, British Prime Minister Chamberlain proclaimed the agreement meant “Peace in our time.” Far from it. The agreement showed the timidity of the Allies, making it a prelude to World War II. The appeasement made Hitler all the more aggressive for still more

both wonder if we made the right choice.

We still love the walkability of the city (Thank God they didn’t close the downtown library,) but are angry about the way the Mayor has divided the city, treating the minority/majority like they really don’t matter, and giving the back of his hand to those who have a different vision for Escondido. I believe a city that makes everyone welcome is a city that becomes known for having a heart and soul. And I believe that’s the kind of city lots of people want to live in. How do we make that happen? This entry is a reprint of a posting from Downtown on January 5, 2013.

Some things---establishing a huge redevelopment area, for instance---were made necessary by the city’s unfortunately lowest in the county tax increment, which was locked in by Prop. 13. Others were the happy result of having relatively abundant land available to develop. Escondido, meanwhile, has been dealing with an aging infrastructure and the relatively fewer development opportunities brought on by both being close to build out (without annexation) and its own self-inflicted roadblock, the growth-control initiative known as Prop. S. Against this backdrop, however, there is much about Escondido that is positive and that can and should be built upon.

First among these positives in my view is its downtown area, especially the heart that is the Grand Avenue corridor. The city council has been wrestling with this part of town for several years, with some positive results, and others less so.

Another is the swath of downtown the city acquired in its

The Pastor Says . . .

the beginning of the Christian season of Lent fell in the same week.

Have you ever thought that both of them have to do with adjusting and re-ordering our lives?

Pastor Tom Fry, Retired from Church of the Nazarene Changing More Than Your Clock

There seems to be more than the usual amount of grousing about the change to Daylight Saving Time this year. A distant cousin, a farmer, never changed his clocks. He likened it to cutting a foot off the top of a blanket, sewing it on the bottom, and calling the blanket longer. The fact is there is no “saving” of daylight, we just rearrange the daylight and adjust our use of it, with more after the work day than before it. Maybe we ought to call it “Daylight Adjustment Time.” This year, the time change and

Most people associate Lent with giving up some luxury, privilege or pleasure. Historically, though, Lent was a time to look at one’s life and make some adjustments. Re-order priorities. Draw a line between needs and wants. Look for ways to do things differently. All this was in preparation for Easter which was, for the early Church, a time of renewal. Daylight Saving Time adjusts our lives, we re-order activities and do things differently because there is daylight into the evening. Setting our clocks ahead one hour gives our lives a new rhythm.

So does Lent. We look for ways to do things differently, to change the routines of our lives. To replace old priorities with new directions and new purposes. It is a time to give our lives a new rhythm, to move ahead. Even better, we don’t have to reset our lives to the old standard next fall. Lent brings a new normal, a new standard to our lives.

In February, when I mentioned that construction was progressing along the west side of S. Santa Fe Avenue between Main Street and Oceanview Drive, not too much construction was visible.

The City is spending $3.7 million on the Paseo Santa Fe Streetscape Improvements during this initial phase. These include undergrounding utilities, stormwater improvements, enhanced landscaping and sidewalks, new streetlights, and pedestrian amenities, such as

Paul & Nome Van Middlesworth, The Computer Factory www.computerfactorysanmarcos.com The Computer Factory vs. Big Box The Difference.

Wal-Mart, Costco, Fry’s, Best Buy, Staples, Office Depot, these are some of the “big box” stores and they are excellent places to buy lots of things. Today most products are manufactured offshore and the “big box” stores with their volume purchasing and economies of scale can bring finished goods to retail shoppers from all over the world at good prices. Because of their cost/pricing advantage these retail giants have replaced many small, independent merchants and for the most part, that’s been good for consumers. They do a great job of getting “commodity” products to consumer’s but when it comes to understanding individual customer needs and

helping them make informed decisions, the “big box” stores often fall short. “Big box” stores provide rudimentary customer service and some products don’t fit this “mass merchandising” model very well. Personal computers (desktop and notebook) are products that don’t fit the model because “big box” stores can’t provide the level of customer service that most users need in order to make informed decisions. There are a couple of reasons for that. “Big box” sales personnel work on commission. Their job is to sell what’s on the shelf regardless of what you need. They don’t have time to evaluate your needs and recommend solutions. Even if they did, they typically don’t have the knowledge or flexibility to accommodate specific needs. Their job is to sell you what they have. “Big box” technical service organizations may be just fine for setting up home entertainment centers but for PCs, not so much. “Big box” service departments are an adjunct to product sales. Their purpose is sales support not customer service. Combine that fact with their typical high turnover, low level of experience and technical competence and then add the handicap of having to adhere to the corporation’s “one size fits all” customer service policies and it’s small wonder the Internet is awash with horror stories from their “abused” customers.

The Computer factory has a different approach. Our “value added” is service. We get paid to provide solutions. To design exactly the right PC or configure the perfect notebook we have to listen. To help our customers decide whether to buy, upgrade, repair or trade-in, we must listen and then feed back the information they need in order to make informed decisions. It may mean comparing the various speeds and capabilities among component options like CPUs, video, RAM, hard drives, optical drives, power supplies, audio, wi-fi etc. It may mean comparing the capabilities of their existing PC with those of new or refurbished PCs in order to determine the most

cost effective solutions.

In summary the big difference between The Computer Factory and the “Big Box Boys” is that we can do things they can’t. We can listen to you and optimize your solutions because we aren’t tied to commissions or “shelf stock.” We have the flexibility and technical expertise that allows us to build, modify, repair or upgrade practically any configuration of desktop or notebook and any operating system. If you need help transferring data, installing programs or getting your home or business network operational we can do it. For any problem, if we can’t solve it we usually know who can. Whether you talk to us first or last, talk to us before you spend your money.

News from the San Marcos Chamber

The San Marcos Chamber of Commerce has been providing business opportunity here for over 50 years and one of the long standing ways we do that is with our Spring Festival. This year, on Sunday April 6th, roughly 250 businesses and organizations will offer their services, products, crafts, and up to 15,000 people. In addition, we’ve added music, great food, children’s activities, a special Dog Dayz Event with vendors and animal rescue groups, as well as displays of fire and military vehicles from our partners at the City and Camp Pendelton. This event is a San Marcos icon and we’re proud to be able to provide a fun day for all of San Marcos and the families that come. In February the Chamber partnered with the City of San Marcos to host the “State of the City” event, providing a sellout crowd the chance to hear our Mayor Jim Desmond talk about the best of our city and what we can look forward to in the coming year. He also previewed the possible new tenants for the former Lowes location in Creekside Marketplace. Finally, a reminder that the most common reason business and organizations join any Chamber of Commerce is for networking (the most common reason, but certainly not the only reason). We are no exception. The opportunity to meet and talk to other businesses and to form lasting and productive business and referral partnerships is an amazingly successful and cost effective technique to grow and expand your business. We offer more of those opportunities than almost any chamber in San Diego, with over 61 separate events last year. Among those networking events are our “Fridays at 4” networking happy hours, our monthly “Business Mixer”, and our monthly “Networking for Success” breakfast event, all of which provide the opportunity for businesses to come together, share their products or services, and find ways to collaborate and succeed together. The dates and locations can be found on our website at www.sanmarcoschamber.com. The Chamber is here for our members, and it is here for San Marcos. We are working to make Business good for San Marcos….and San Marcos good for business.
