Volume 48 - No. 18
By Pete Peterson
It’s fight night and my friend Ryman Call is bein’ clobbered to a bloody mess by young Bob Cleary. Blood drips from Ryman’s chin, his right eye swole big as a persimmon. Bob Cleary circles him, a hungry wolf after a crippled sheep. Cleary sends a hard left to Ryman’s forehead. Ryman staggers like a toddler tryin’ to walk. Cleary fires a right to Ryman’s belly. Ryman sprawls to the sawdust. Cleary throws his fists in the air, like he’s the new champ. The crowd The The Paper Paper -- 760.747.7119 760.747.7119

screams and stomps, glad Ryman Call is finally gettin’ his due, plum happy the local boy they’ve watched trot off to school holdin’ big sister’s hand, is doin’ the smashin’. They yell for Ryman to get up, they want him beat on more. I’m Hamas Zanderhook. I cook for Ryman and his three daughters and ride herd on Winder, his eight-yearold boy. I seen ere one of his slugfests from his first barroom brawl to tonight’s donnybrook. This is the onlyist time he’s ever ate sawdust. Usually, it’s the other feller who’s covered with blood and snot and will mebbe cripple through life
the rest of his days.
Ryman’s shellackin’ pains me terrible. If I had my druthers I’d grab Lon Warfield’s pistol and shoot Bob Cleary ‘tween the eyes, but Ryman would yell, “Stay outta my rock patch, Zee.” Sweaty palms and stingin’ eyes be hanged, I gotta a job to do, so I climb into the Big Money seats to handle bettin’ needs of the gentlemen there. A soft-handed feller in a gray fedora, pushes two Abe’s at me. I give him a marker and grab five Washington’s from a city boy with thick glasses and new shoes.
A farmer in the standin’ section yells, “Dummy, get yer ass over here.”
I duck under the rope and take his greenbacks. Ryman lays in the dust like a lazy dog. The farmer’s moola are probably all he has left from that load of hay he sold last fall. He stashed his rolled-up bills in a Prince Albert tobacco can in the barn rafters, should Baby Sister’s headaches return, and the doc needs to visit, or the vet called durin’ calvin’ season. “Mark me for three bucks, Dummy.

All Ryman’s gonna win tonight is a trip to the cemetery.”
I write, “3 bucks. Redheaded farmer. New overalls.” on my paper, scrawl $3 on ‘nother sheet and hand it to him. He’ll get his money back, ‘long with matching funds from Ryman’s wad if Bob Cleary holds his gains, which I hope he don’t. For the fighter’s it’s winner take all. Knock the other guy senseless or make him cry uncle and the pots yer’s. My cigar box is jammed with seven, eight hunnert bucks, not countin' Ryman’s seed money. Truth be told, folks are more ‘n a little surprised at how this fandango’s unfurled, even if they hoped it’d be this way. But, hope’s one thing, and real somethin’ different.
On the fight floor, Bob Cleary yells, “Get up, Old Man. I got more where that come from.” Ryman pulls hisself to one knee, but looks like he ain’t got the strength, nor the juice to spit. *** Ridin’ over from Yellowbird in Lon Warfield’s pickup earlier this evenin’, Ryman said, “These boys got money to burn. We have an obligation to see it goes in our pocket, so they won’t start no unsafe fires.” That’s Ryman. All jokes and razzin’ ‘cept when he’s beatin' the sap outta some young man with more moolah

An old prospector shuffled into the town of El Indio, Texas leading a tired old mule.
The old man headed straight for the only saloon in town, to clear his parched throat. He walked up to the saloon and tied his old mule to the hitch rail.
As he stood there, brushing some of the dust from his face and clothes, a young gunslinger stepped out of the saloon with a gun in one hand and a bottle of whisky in the other.
The young gunslinger looked at the old man and laughed, saying, "Hey old man, can you dance?"
The old man looked up at the gunslinger and said, "No son, I don't dance . . . never really wanted to."
A crowd had gathered as the gunslinger grinned and said, "Well, you old fool, you're gonna dance now!" and started shooting at the old man's
than brains. He’s lucky if he just gets knocked out. Some of Ryman’s opponents limp through life after a go at Ryman. Some lose a eye, or get a broke back ‘cause they get up after Ryman hammers ‘em to the ground. One young man spends his days strapped to a chair, prayin’ he won’t pass out from the pain of his next spasm. Pride ain’t got no place in the fight game. In the fight ring, Bob Cleary struts, the prettiest rooster in the coop, hopin’ Ryman gets up, so he can knock him from here to St. Louis and be rich as a bank robber from the prize money.
*** This fist throwin’ contest come ‘bout nigh onto two months ago. I brung a mess of fresh carrots onto the back porch. Ryman waves a envelop. “My answer to Cleary,” he says. “I’ll whup his ass the first Saturday in June. His bailiwick.”
He thumbs a stamp on the letter. “Goin’ by the post office the next day or two, Zee? Drop this off would ya?” Since Ryman’s doin’ the askin’, I whoop up my mule, Pete Grey, and clippety-clop into Yellowbird, where Miss Hattie McCormack, the post mistress, drops the letter into the mail bag. Miss Hattie’s a special friend. She taught me finger talk. My ears may be blistered and orange as a dried apricot, but I hear just fine. It were my talk box that got burned away in the house fire feet.
The old prospector, not wanting to get a toe blown off, started hopping around like a flea on a hot skillet. Everybody standing around was laughing.
When his last bullet had been fired, the young gunslinger, still laughing, holstered his gun and turned around to go back into the saloon. The old man turned to his pack mule, pulled out a double-barreled 12 gauge shotgun and cocked both hammers. The loud clicks carried clearly through the desert air. The crowd stopped laughing immediately. The young gunslinger heard the sounds too, and he turned around very slowly.
The silence was deafening. The crowd watched as the young gunman stared at the old timer and the large gaping holes of those twin 12 gauge barrels.
The barrels of the shotgun never wavered in the old man's hands, as he quietly said; "Son, have you ever kissed a mule's backside?"
The gunslinger swallowed hard and said, "No sir .. . . but . . . but I've always wanted to." There are a few lessons for all of us here: * Don't be arrogant.
* Don't waste ammunition.
that kilt baby sister Darcy and turned Pap to a black cinder. The onlyist sounds I make are mouth noises, hisses, grunts and lip pops. Some years ago, Miss Hattie waved a book, “This shows how to spell words using fingers. If we both learn, you can tell me your needs in no time.”
That were ‘bout when the schoolmarm said my scarred-ugly face made little ones pee their pants, and either I stop comin’ to school, or she’d quit teachin’. It were me who quit, so Miss Hattie taught me to read and do my sums, me spellin’ my answers with my fingers. That were a blessin’ most as big as Ryman’s generosity, I tell you. Now, Miss Hattie asks, “Still aim to move to Jeff City and look for your Momma?” I spell out, “Most likely. When Winder’s in school.”
She nods. “Good time as any to dig up old bones, I guess. Remember, Young Man, just because your Momma was seen in the Katy railroad depot dressed to the high heavens doesn’t mean she’s a Katy Lady.” I nod. Soft words don’t change hard facts. Mom liked her drink when she lived with me and Pap and Darcy, so bein’ a Katy Lady fits her like a Saturday night dance. Katy Ladies comfort lonely men travelers on the railroad. The ladies ride free
* Whisky makes you think you're smarter than you are.
* Always make sure you know who is in control. * And finally, don't mess around with old folks; they didn't get old by being stupid.
I just love a story with a happy ending, don't you?

Bob Cleary parades like the King of Prussia, pretendin’ he’s the new bare knuckle champ of Callaway County. Come Saturday night he hopes to waltz into Yellowbird, the ladies smilin’ all big, at him, each one eager to hop in the buggy and go for a ride. He just needs to salt Ryman Call away. That’s all. *** A little over two hours ago, Lon Warfield parked his pickup under the big maples next to the IGA warehouse. Ryman climbed out, stretched and touched his toes. Ten or twelve men boo like he’s a Halloween ghost, hot as a railroad spike left in the sun for the local fighter. “Yer jest a fart in a windstorm ‘round here, Ryman,” one yells. ‘Nother hollers, “Yer dead an’ don’t know it. Lay down. Make it easy on the undertaker.”
Ryman waves. “Sorry to ruin yer party, boys, but I’m gonna send yer feller home with his tail ‘tween his legs.” He laughs, but he’s serious as sin.
Word that champion Ryman Call has arrived travels fast. ‘Fore ya can say May, June and July, a dozen or so more fight fans hot-foot over from the Harvest Moon Bar. They figure Ryman’ll get his ass kicked, but who don’t want to gander at the king ‘fore he’s knocked from his throne?

Addin’ sugar to the spice, the feller they figger to do the knockin’ is a youngster they seen climb onto his momma’s lap on Market Day, unbutton her dress, say “Tit” and suck. Don’t that make Ryman’s demise even more grand? *** Me, Lon Warfield and 9-year-old Winder, my special charge at his Daddy’s fights, are invisible to these folks. They eye Ryman like a prize bull when he crosses the parkin’ lot and goes inside for the usual pre-fight confab. Lon Warfield, Ryman’s driver, melts into the crowd, pistol in his pocket. Ryman says, “Lon’s quiet as a Indian and smart as a owl. He can gut and skin a deer ‘fore it’s last turd hits the ground.”
Inside, Ryman ponies up a hunnert dollars to Tom Baker, the fight timekeeper. The local boy hands Tom five hunnert smackeroos for the honor of gettin’ the hominy-grit shit beat outta him. Tom drops the Jing-a-ling into a bag and straps it to his leg where it’ll stay ‘til a clear winner’s declared.

Plus, Cleary aims to ladle gravy on his taters from side bets won from them who don’t think he’s got the goods to handle Ryman Call.
After Ryman agreed to this shindig, he learned Bob Cleary were fifteen years younger, five inches taller and mebbe fifty pounds heavier’n him. “He hits like a fallin’ tree, with arms long as a mowin’ blade. His last three fights, he knocked out good men in less than seven minutes. Total. He’s got sparkle.”
As the never been whupped top dog in the county, Ryman names where the fight’s to be held and when. Ryman don’t fight in Yellowbird, ‘cause he knows even for them that been there afore, crows get lost lookin’ for our slice of Heaven. We got more hills than hollers, and if the road ain’t washed out and muddy its rocky, with so many twists and turns you think you’re goin’ forward, when you’re really goin’ backards.
Ryman’ll fight a giant and two midgets at the same time, if the money’s right. Tonight, he’s got to handle this big, strong man in his own backyard, with the crowd yellin’ encouragement ever breath he takes, ever fist he throws. That’s a heavy load even for champion Ryman Call.
The rules agreed to, I tag along when Ryman walks the warehouse, Winder holdin’ my thumb like a chicken leg. I’ll miss that boy when I’m gone, I tell you.
Ryman laughs. “Good fer him. A good fight means a happy crowd and folks eager for our next knuckle-throwin’ party. That’s more greenback dollars for my family.”
For Cleary, this fight’s like candy from Santa Claus. Hell, Ryman’s old enough to be his daddy. He’s
As to fight time for tonight’s get go, Ryman named twenty-minute rounds with a five-minute blow in between. If both fighters still stand after all that fist-throwin’, they take ten minutes to piss and gulp down a beer or two, then battle ‘til one of ‘em quits or goes down and stays down.

On the morning of November 13, 1986, 75-year-old Richard Finney was found stabbed to death inside of his apartment at 326 E. Mission Ave. in Escondido. Escondido police detectives noted that several items belonging to Mr. Finney had been stolen from the apartment. Detectives collected evidence which included fingerprints and blood evidence. However, a suspect was never identified.

investigative efforts were conducted, which included testing Mr. Mathis’ DNA profile against the previously collected unknown DNA profile. San Diego County Sheriff ’s Crime Lab personnel compared the two DNA profiles and determined that Mathis’ DNA profile matched the DNA profile collected from Mr. Finney’s apartment in 1986.

Then, one day, we had lunch together. I learned that not only did she not have horns, fangs, and a pointy tail but she was actually a very nice person. We still disagree on one or two political items . . . I'm very much against illegal aliens being allowed into the USA, she tends to support them.

I pocket the Vaseline for later use, help Winder shoulder his Daddy’s stool, and carry Ryman’s ice bucket and towels. Winder walks by my side.
When Ryman enters the fight place, fight fans yell cat calls at him. “Ya’ll look like that freak next to ya ‘fore the night’s over.” That’s meant for me, but don’t bother me none. I know I’m ugly. ’Nother yell is, “Don’t worry, Ryman. We’ll take good care of ya. We got a hearse outside.”
When the local hero marches in, the crowd cheers. He has I-hate-theworld-look on his whiskered face. He’s monster big, mebbe 6 foot 4 or 5, a solid 250-260. His hair is bushy and black as a wolverine’s, his squinty eyes, ice blue. Ryman shuffles his feet in sawdust, then hustles out to the mark. Cleary comes up. He wears long underwear cut off at the waist and cinched with a wide leather belt, the drop seat sewed shut. He’s bare-chested. Standin’ next to him, Ryman looks like a lost school boy. Ryman says to Cleary, “Yer last will and testament wrote, Shorty?”
The gong sounds. The big bruiser pops Ryman with a hard right. Ryman fires a straight left to let folks know he come to the dance.
Cleary is a southpaw, a fighter who leads with his right hand. Ryman ain’t seen this style ‘fore, so his guard ain’t good as it should be. Cleary’s jabs sound horsewhip loud agin Ryman’s face and arms. When Ryman hits him, Cleary grunts.
Ryman says, “Lookin’ for yer Momma? Try the cheek. She’s showin’ her hairy thang to the men a dime a look.” He hopes this will rile the young fighter, so he’ll throw wild punches and wear hisself out. Cleary just grins. Round one ends. Neither fighter has a clear advantage, but things change faster than a left jab in round two. The big boy is on Ryman like dust on a tobacco plant.
I ‘spec Ryman’s put out by this, 'cause most fights he knocks some poor sucker out while the gong still quivers, then chugs beer in the tavern, his winnin’s piled on the bar, eyein’ the local talent, decidin’ which lucky girl he’ll court tonight. Tonight’s merry-go-round is a hump and a holler from Ryman’s first lollapalooza. That were one Saturday night at the Pick and Shovel Bar in Mokane. Ryman was enjoyin’ a cold beer after a hard week’s work. Them two Hatton brothers marched in. They pointed at a certain farmer’s wife, sayin’ they’d sure like a go with her and her sittin’ right there next to her husband eatin’ a cheeseburger.

And new lipstick. ‘Fore they left home, they took ten rainy-day smackeroos from the Clabber Girl Baking Soda can on the top shelf in the kitchen cabinet, and dropped it into the jar on the bar at the Wise Owl in Ashland. Eddie were sure he’d be found a fast road to riches when he knocked out the local butcher his first fight. In his second go ‘round, Eddie laid out the preacher’s son with two punches. When Eddie seen his next opponent were Ryman Call, his eyes lit up, convinced this would be a duck soup go for him. After all, Ryman were probably fortyyears old, and Eddie just turned twenty-five. ‘Fore the fight, Eddie sidled up to Ryman. “I got a ten spot that says I whup yer ass, Old Man. Can ya match it?” The way side bets ‘tween fighters are usually handled, is the timekeeper holds the money and pays the winner. When Eddie didn’t follow these rules, Ryman grinned, figurin’ Eddie didn’t have the gettis to back his bet. “Yer on, Youngster,” Ryman said. Tom Baker hits the gong. Eddie comes out swingin’. Ryman swats his blows away like they was smoke rings, then slaps Eddie like a daddy does to correct his boy. This angrified Eddie.

as well as Pastor Richard Huls appear every week in The Paper. First week is Pastor Richard Huls, second week is Pastor Hal Seed, third week is Pastor Sam Brumit and fourth week is Pastor Tom Fry.
Pastors Seed and Brumit had some family health issues to tend to so missed a week or two but they are now back in their regular rotation. Regarding the Sanctuary City issue, I'm not quite sure what to tell our children: do we teach them to honor and obey just certain laws or not? It's very hard to prevent from being hypocritical and saying this or that law is okay to break, but other laws are okay. The immigration issue is a very heart-breaking one and all I can say on this issue is: until laws are changed, we must respect what is on the books.
I've always been taught that "the majority rules" and that's what makes a true democracy. If the majority of people vote this or that way, well, we may not agree with the outcome, but, we have to learn to either change the laws, legally through our system, or abide by them. It's okay to protest, but, please leave hatred, violence, and bigotry remarks at home. I know we have our struggles here, but, hurting one another or physical altercations are not the solution.
Truthfully, I really wish the illegal aliens could come here (legally) and not flood-in through lawbreaking. Bottom line, our country needs to be honored and respected, No exceptions. I'm sorry if my view offends certain factions of the population, but, the last time I checked, we have the dignified freedom to voice our views and opinions without being labeled a "racist." By the way, we love Friedrich Gomez's writings and that's really the primary reason we pick up The Paper. For us, he's a true American. His past article on Over-Political Correction hurting our country is well worth re-reading in your past articles in the Archive Section of your paper.

Turn up the juice! Talk is cheap, it’s production that counts. Electric cars are on their way into our lives. There are 41 different models being produced by 18 different manufacturers. March production was topped by Tesla with 10,200 cars while Mercedes was tinkering with 11. Total electric car production for March was 26,373 and total production for the first quarter of the year was 55,267. Going back to the beginning of the automobile our first cars were electric.
Everyone knows Elon Musk is a genius and leads the parade of electric cars with the Tesla, but is he also a miracle money man? It’s reality check time. Tesla value is worth double what Ford is worth, but Ford produced six million vehicles is 2017 and turned that into 7,600,000,000 dollars in profit, whereas Tesla made 100,000 cars and lost 2 billion dollars. Ford is sitting with twelve billion in cash prepared for a rainy day. Tesla is due to run out of cash in less than three months. Think about it. It’s crazy! Do you remember the Mobilgas Economy Runs? They started in 1936 and ran thru 1968 with time off for World War II. They were often won early on by an independent like Studebaker and Nash with models like Champion and 600. In fact the Nash 600 was named because it had a twenty gallon gas tank and it was possible to squeeze out as high as 30 mpg ,which meant a range of 600 miles on a tank of gas. Looking back to 1941 the Nash 600 won it’s class with 25.8 mpg—not bad for a full sized automobile . the average price of a gallon of gasoline was only 12 cents per gallon. The good old days?
Getting sensible about public safety
Recent changes in California’s criminal statutes resulting from passage of Propositions 47 and 57 have reclassified many serious crimes from felonies to misdemeanors. These changes have reduced the justice system’s ability to keep criminals off the street, impeded criminal investigations by restricting DNA collection, and redefined the definition of violent crimes for incarcerated criminals up for parole. While prisoners convicted of violent crimes often are not eligible for early parole, there are problems with the violent crime definition under current law. Human trafficking of a child, rape of an unconscious person, shooting at an inhabited dwelling or vehicle, assault with a firearm, serial arson, solicitation to commit murder, exploding a bomb to injure people, and many more – are not considered violent crimes. Who would have known? Most would consider a midnight break-in to be a serious and potentially violent crime. Not anymore. When a burglar breaks into your home and steals property valued
under $950, it’s a misdemeanor. If the same burglar returns night after night and steals property valued under $950 each time, every one of those break-ins would still be a misdemeanor. If apprehended, the burglar would be cited and released. And of course, no DNA would be collected, so if the burglar has committed other crimes there would be no way for the police to know, at least not by using DNA evidence. Reclassifying felonies to misdemeanors has greatly reduced DNA collection, degrading law enforcement’s ability to investigate many serious crimes, including rape and murder. Feel safer now? But change could be coming. An initiative, the “Reducing Crime and Keeping California Safe Act,” may be on the November ballot. California’s voters may get another chance to decide which crimes are violent, which are misdemeanors, and which are felonies. Minority Floor Leader Marie Waldron, R-Escondido, represents the 75th Assembly District in the California Legislature, which includes the communities of Bonsall, Escondido, Fallbrook, Hidden Meadows, Pala, Palomar Mountain, Pauma Valley, Rainbow, San Marcos, Temecula, Valley Center and Vista.

Ten minutes and two buckets of cold water later, he sits up, spits out a tooth and asks, “Where am I?” “In my shit house,” Ryman says. “Where’s my ten bucks?”
His lips bloody and swole up like a dead cow left in the sun, Eddie whines, “Mr. Call, could ya kindly give me a few days? I’ll sell a load of wood or somethin’ to pay what I owe.” Ryman says, “Sure, I could do that. But, I won’t. If I did, I’d have fortyseven challenges in three minutes from every asshole with two fists and no money in his pocket. You made the bet, boy. Pay up.” “Wouldja take my mules?”

He does stupid things on his own.” She pushes a blonde curl behind her ear. Ryman says. “Eddie, yer wife worth ten bucks?”
Eddie lets out a long breath. Claudette waits for Eddie to answer, a smile on her red lips. When Eddie don’t open his yap, she says, “Ya damn right, I am. Got a car? Or will our wagon bed do?” *** Good fighters don’t beg. For years, Ryman Call’s beat the goose feathers off ever fighter he’s faced, but tonight he’s gettin’ pay back. He’s got two choices. One, stay in the sawdust and not come to mark the next round, so that Bob Cleary wins the pot, or he can get up and Bob Cleary creams him. That’s how his cards stack up.

Historically Speaking by Tom Morrow
Capt. Samuel Walker of the Texas Rangers had acquired some of the first Colt revolvers produced during the Seminole War and saw first-hand their effective use as his 15-man unit defeated a larger force of 70 Comanche in Texas. Walker wanted to order 1,000 Colt revolvers for use by the Rangers in the Mexican-American War. Those first revolving-breech pistols had become so popular the word "Colt" was often used as a generic term for the revolver.

The Man Who Won The West
It would not be an exaggeration to say Samuel Colt won the West – with his revolving six-shot pistol. At a time when America was being tamed across the plains and then a Civil War, the fast-firing revolver Colt designed and manufactured provided law enforcement, the military, and civilians, both law abiding and criminal, a weapon unlike no other at the time.
Colt Navy 51 Squareback
Born July 19, 1814, Sam Colt founded Colt's Patent Fire-Arms Manufacturing Company (today Colt's Manufacturing Company) and made the mass production of the revolver commercially viable. During the American Civil War, his factory in Hartford supplied firearms both to the North and the South. Later, his firearms were prominent during the settling of the western frontier. When he died in 1862, he was one of the wealthiest men in America.
Ryman pulls me close. “Any idees?”
I shake no. I ain’t a corner man like boxin’ glove fighters have, a fightsmart feller who stops blood from a cut and gives his fighter advice. I can’t talk, much less make swellins’ go down. And who am I to tell Ryman how to fight? He needs to get his piss and vinegar back to win this little quarrel. Ryman has ‘nother problem. If he lasts ‘nother round, he’ll have to fight ‘til him or Cleary go down and stay down. That ain’t good. Ryman’s right eye is swole up like

After hearing soldiers talk about the success of the double-barreled rifle and the impossibility of a gun that could shoot five or six times without reloading, Colt decided that he would create the "impossible gun” – and, he did.
Colt's manufacturing methods were at the forefront of the Industrial Revolution. His use of interchangeable parts helped him become one of the first to use the assembly line efficiently. Moreover, his innovative use of art, celebrity endorsements, and corporate gifts to promote his wares made him a pioneer in the fields of advertising, product placement, and mass marketing.
In 1850 Gen. Sam Houston and Gen. Thomas Jefferson Rusk lobbied Secretary of War William Marcy and President James K. Polk to adopt Colt's revolvers for the U.S. military. Rusk testified: "Colt's Repeating Arms are the most efficient weapons in the world and the only weapon which has enabled the frontiersman to defeat the mounted Indian in his own peculiar mode of warfare."
Colt’s preoccupation with marketing strategies and patent protection caused
him to miss a great opportunity in firearms development when he dismissed an idea from one of his gunsmiths, Rollin White. White had an idea of a "bored-through" revolver cylinder to allow the use of metallic cartridges in a handgun. After Colt fired White for suggesting an improvement to his revolver, White took his idea to Colt's competitor, Smith & Wesson, who patented his invention and kept Colt from being able to build cartridge firearms for almost 20 years.
As the American Civil War approached, Colt supplied both the North and the South with firearms. In 1859 Colt considered building an armory in the South and as late as 1861 had sold 2,000 revolvers to Confederate agent John Forsyth. Although trade with the South had not been restricted at that time, newspapers labeled him a Southern sympathizer and traitor to the Union. In response to these charges, Colt was commissioned as a colonel in the 1st Regiment Colts Revolving Rifles of Connecticut, however the unit never took the field and Colt was discharged on June 20, 1861. It is estimated that in its first 25 years of manufacturing, Colt's company produced more than 400,000 revolvers. Colt set up libraries and educational programs within his armories for his employees. These provided seminal training grounds for several generations of toolmakers and other machinists, who had great influence in other manufacturing efforts of the next half century. In 2006, Samuel Colt was inducted into the National Inventors Hall of Fame. Samuel Colt died of gout in Hartford on Jan. 10, 1862. At the time of his death, Colt's estate, which he left to his wife and three-year-old son Caldwell Hart Colt, was estimated to be valued at $15 million (more than $350 million by 2018 standards).

Winder stands soldier-straight behind his Daddy’s stool, his fists clenched, his knuckles white, fightin’ tears. Lon Warfield pushes through the crowd to gander at Ryman. His face goes pale. He don’t speak, just turns and heads outside to see the moon, rather than watch Ryman get knocked silly. Ryman Call’s the best man I’ve ever knowed. He found me cold, wet and bad burned and he brung me home. His wife, Miss Ethel, patched me up. Since that day to this, some seven years have passed. I’ve slept under Ryman’s roof and filled my belly at his table. Now, he’s a goner, and they’s no help I can give him. *** Ryman pulls me close. “Think I outta use my crippled quail?”
What Ryman means is, he’ll act like one of Cleary’s punches hurts him bad, the way a momma quail pretends she has a broke wing when you get too close to her babies. She’ll flutter ‘long the ground just outta reach. When you’ve followed
her fifteen or twenty feet, and her brood’s safe, her wings gets a magic cure and off she flies, fast as a Indian arrow. That’s what Ryman means.
I nod, and poke the air with my right and fire a left. Ryman says, “Gotcha. I ain’t thrown a decent one all night.” The crowd commences to laugh. I turn. Two boys, one dressed like a scarecrow, the other like a old woman, stand near me. “Yer a ugly son-a-bitch,” Scarecrow says.
I can’t argue. It’s true. Folks suspicion the fire that scarred me bad was started by my own momma on purpose, since she ain’t been seen in these parts since that night. ‘til last month when she were spied at the Katy station in Jeff City.
I offer my hand to Scarecrow, like his joke’s fun. He tosses a cup of liquid at me. By the smell, it’s coal oil. The Old Woman’s match flames out ‘fore it catches fire. Folks slap they’s knees and laugh. It ain’t funny to me. Now, I know I gotta find my momma and learn if she started the fire that killed Darcy and Pap.
A fight fan from the big money seats hustles up, grabs the boys and pulls ‘em outside. “Idiots,” he says. “You’ll burn the whole place down.”
Ryman says, “Pay ‘em no mind, Zee.”
Easy for him to say, but it’s me they made laughin’ stock of. Winder says, “Ya ain’t ugly, Hamas. And yer sure nice to me.”
That may be true, but I gotta face my past. *** The gong sounds. Round five. Bob Cleary rushes out, eyes gleamin,’ ready to put Ryman asleep. He fires punches like they cancelled tomorrow and he’s the onlyist one to know it. Ryman grabs him and holds on, so Bob’s fists hit only his arms and shoulders. Bob’s blows don’t seem to have steam like earlier. Did he celebrate too much? Ryman lands a right hook to Cleary’s belly. Cleary backs off, probably surprised at Ryman’s get up and go. Me, too. Then, Ryman slaps Cleary. The crowd roars. They know this is Ryman sayin’ settle yer bets boys, I got the reins. This fight’s mine.
Cleary’s eyes go big. He flings a right. Ryman blocks it and slaps him agin. Cleary charges Ryman like a Arkansas razorback goin’ for a slop trough. Ryman dances away. Cleary’s left glances his shoulder. Ryman slaps Cleary agin. “Ya dumb sonavabitch,” Cleary yells. He fires ‘nother right, ‘nother

Cleary zings a left, a right, a left. Ryman blocks ‘em all. Cleary’s eyes glint like a badger chasin’ a chicken. He fires a long right to Ryman’s forehead. Ryman goes down like he were shot. Cleary yells, “Get up, Ol’ man. I’m gonna wreck ya!” Cleary waves to the crowd, and hops ’round like a grasshopper on a fryin’ pan. Ryman drags hisself to the far corner of the fight floor, and stands, wavin’ like a persimmon sprout in the wind. Cleary rushes him. Ryman feints with his right. Bob Cleary’s eyes follow this fist for a hiccup, ‘after all that’s where Ryman’s poison is. Ryman’s left hook sizzles in over Cleary’s right shoulder and smashes agin his jaw. Cleary’s mouth pops open. Teeth spill into the dirt. Blood spurts. It’s hard to knock out a man as big as Bob Cleary with one punch. Ryman knows time’s runnin’ out, but he can’t hurry.

Now, probably wagon wheels float ‘fore Cleary’s eyes, the salty blood fillin’ his mouth. Cleary staggers to his feet. Ryman bangs a right hook to his kidney.

Cleary lunges at Ryman. He knows his neighbor’s bet good money sayin’ he’d win this scuffle, money to buy a new calf, or shingle the smokehouse. He wants one clear punch at Ryman, so they can collect their bets and go home rich. He probably hates the place where minutes earlier, he were king. “Stand still, Coward,” he yells at Ryman.

The Pastor Says . . .
Pastor Richard Huls (Retired)
I love the spring of the year. Even the music of Antonio Vivaldi in his Four Seasons seems to brighten up when Spring is played. It seems to awaken the spirit of anticipation.
Those of us who live in S. California don’t have the luxury of a severe winter, which is overcome with the miracle of spring, which sees the crocus breaking through the snow and saying, “It is spring”. I know the winters, such as the Midwest and the East Coast had this winter, can be brutal, but the spring makes it all fade and it is soon forgotten. It is no less true for those of us here in So. California to welcome spring. It is the sense of newness

and excitement. Flowers (yes, even weeds) seem to spring forth after a long slumber. I have narcissus, daffodils, roses, even lilacs, and the blossoms, which fill the air with the fragrances of oranges, apples, peaches, and bushes of lavender. It is a wonderful time of the year. And for those of us who garden, there is nothing as exciting as working the soil, planting seeds and settings of one’s favorite vegetables, all with the expectation of a harvest.
And yet, there is so much more. I am thankful for our editor, Lyle Davis, who with the humor and wit of The Paper, wants to include a spiritual aspect for his readers. I include that aspect with the awakening of spring, the awakening of our spiritual life. The Creator of all the excitement and beauty of spring continues to work in our souls, spirits, and bodies with an appreciation for the world in which we live. The author of Psalm 8 captures it beautifully with these words, “O Lord, our Lord, how majestic is Your name in all the earth, Who have displayed your splendor, --- What is man that you take thought of him? --- You make him to rule over the works of your hands ---“ It is this awakening which gives us the true awakening of spring.

Yesterday morning I bought two six packs of beer on sale at the Liquor Store.
I placed them on the front seat of the car and headed back home.
I stopped at the service station where a drop-dead gorgeous, almost blonde was filling up her car at the next pump.
It was very warm and she was wearing tight shorts and a light top which was wide open. She glanced at the beer, bent over and knocked on my passenger window.
With her bra-less breasts almost falling out of her skimpy top she said, in a sexy voice, “I'm a big believer in barter, old fellow, would you be interested in trading sex for beer?" I thought for a few seconds and asked, "What kind of beer you got?" •••• I chose the road less traveled and now I don’t know where the hell I am!

A new way to avoid any .08 alcohol issues while driving: I went out with some friends last night and tied one on. Knowing that I was wasted, I did something that I have never done before. I took a bus home.
I arrived home safe and warm, which seemed really surprising as I have never driven a bus before. Two beggars are sitting side by side on a street in Rome, Italy. One has a Cross in front of him; the other one is holding the Star of David. Many people go by, look at both beggars, but only put money into the hat of the beggar sitting

behind the Cross.
The Pope comes by. He stops to watch the throngs of people giving money to the beggar who holds the Cross while none give to the beggar holding the Star of David. Finally, the Pope approaches the beggar with the Star of David and says, "My poor fellow, don't you understand? This is a Catholic country; this city is the Seat of Catholicism. People aren't going to give you money if you sit there with a Star of David in front of you, especially when you're sitting beside a beggar who is holding a Cross. In fact, they would probably give more money to him just out of spite. The beggar with the Star of David listened to the Pope, smiled, and turned to the beggar with the Cross and said, "Moishe, look who's trying to teach the Goldstein brothers about marketing!"

While the investigation is ongoing, the police department does not believe there are any outstanding suspects related to this incident. According to a witness, the suspect initiated an unprovoked attack on the victim, stabbing him multiple times while they were in the vehicle together. The victim, an associate of the suspect, was able to get out of the vehicle while it was still moving. The suspect then got out of the vehicle, chased the victim and continued the assault until the female companion was able to separate them. The suspect got back into the vehicle prior to police arrival and ultimately led officers on a pursuit through multiple cities in North County.
The suspect has been identified as 28-year-old Gervin Giovanni Chavez. Gervin Chavez was transported to the Carlsbad Police station for processing and will be ultimately booked into the Vista Detention Facility for Penal Code 664/187(a)Attempted Homicide. The victim was transported to a local area hospital where he is undergoing multiple surgeries for his wounds. Robbery from Macy’s Department Store

AI was likely instrumental in catching the Golden State Killer. AI computers can quickly analyze and find matches in massive files, like finger print and DNA data bases, in a fraction of the time it would take humans. Most of the AI that serves us today is programmed to make sense from the mountains of data collected on human and non human activities and events. While AI has made us safer and more efficient it has taken a toll on our privacy.

instructions from the mind. In other words we are simply robots being handled by our external minds. Our memories, emotions and all of our thinking is being stored and executed “off site.” Our “rent a bodies” are simply temporary earthbound vehicles for our immortal minds which exist in some spirit world. I kind of like that idea, it would sure explain a lot of things. One of the most famous examples of how intricately our minds work comes from EA Poe’s short story, Murders in the Rue Morgue. It is Paris in 1841 and the narrator (presumably Poe) and his highly intellectual friend and roommate, Aguste Dupin, are taking an evening stroll. They’ve walked in silence for the past fifteen minutes when suddenly Dupin blurts out that he completely agrees with his companion’s opinion concerning the miscasting of a par-
ticular actor for role he is playing in a current theatrical production. Poe initially mutters agreement, but suddenly realizes that his friend has read his mind. Perplexed, he asks how Dupin knew what he was thinking. Dupin backtracks to his friends near collision with a fruit basket fifteen minutes earlier and proceeds to accurately recount his friends thought processes through a series of completely unrelated incidents culminating in his musing about the actor. Dupin was able to predict his friend’s thoughts perfectly because of the common knowledge they shared and by watching his reaction to incidents along the way. When scientists can create a machine as smart as Dupin, I’ll take two.
Building a “neural network” machine that can think and learn like a human has been an obsession with scientist and a frequent topic of fiction writers for decades. In order to create one we first need to understand how our human mind works and so far, we’re not even close. Is the mind inside the brain? Many believe it is not. There is a school of thought that believes that our brains are simply organs that communicate sensory experiences to the mind and receive motor
Carlsbad Police Department was called to Macy’s located at 2559 El Camino Real regarding a robbery that had just occurred. Officers arrived and conducted an investigation into the robbery. The investigation revealed that Raymond Lee Serrano, D.O.B. 9/11/1995 of Ramona entered the Macy’s department store and stole two pairs of pants and several purses. Serrano then exited Macy’s without paying for the property. Serrano was contacted outside the store by employees. While outside the store, Serrano presented a knife to prevent employees from retrieving their property. The suspect fled into a brush area located between the store and Highway 78. Arriving officers searched the surrounding area, including the brush area near Highway 78. Officers located Serrano hiding in the bushes and he was taken into custody without incident. Serrano was booked into the San Diego County Jail, Vista Detention Facility, for the charges of 211 PC – Robbery and 496(a) PC – Possession of stolen property. Letter s to the Editor? We love ‘em!

be reasonable in her support or opposition, that she did her homework, researched things very well, and articulated her position very clearly and very well. I endorsed her candidacy in the last two elections, which no doubt irritated some of my more conservative friends. They see Olga as a Liberal. She is, in some areas, but so am I. I tend to be much closer to the conservative philosophy but in some areas I'm quite liberal. Olga is good people. That's why I support her via endorsements. That's why she's my pal. The fact that she is also very easy on the eyes doesn't hurt.
Later, I met with Rebecca Jones, a member of the San Marcos City Council and a candidate for Mayor; this was more a political meeting as she sought my endorsement for her run for the Mayor's chair. She has it. I'm endorsing her. She has accomplished a great deal as a council member, is very active in community events, and will be a fine Mayor. She, too, is very easy on the eyes.
Still later, a third young lady entered my life. We went to the gymnastics class attended by my 6-year old granddaughter, Alex. In June she'll turn 7, and watched her go through her routines. When she saw grandpa and grandma she had a quick smile and shyly waved at us.
I practiced gymnastics when I attended dear old Benson High School in Omaha, but I didn't start gymnastics till I was a junior. Prior to my junior year I was too puny.

Me and Winder climb into Lon’s pick up, and pull the tarp to our neck. Winder rests his head on my shoulder. He’s asleep ‘fore we cross the railroad tracks. Stars fill lege scholarship out of it, and was headed for the Olympics when he, as I recall, had a finger amputated . . . which ended his Olympic dream. He, Bill Lamb, and Carl Reynolds, would often perform on the trampoline at halftime during school basket ball games. I never progressed that far. I could work the parallel bars, the high bar, and the vault . . . and the then "flying rings." They don't "fly" anymore. They are stationary rings. Doing crazy things like "the Iron Cross." Stationary. Just when I had learned to end-locate, dislocate and do a flying dismount, they change the damned routine. Damn! There went my chance for glory! I know a bit about gymnastics but am no longer fit to even practice it (frozen right shoulder with arthritis, also low back arthritis). However, I was amazed at what these young kids could do!
The class is held in a huge industrial building in Vista; all kinds of mats, parallel bars, high bars, vaults, climbing ropes, balance beams . . you name it. They start the kids off as young as three years old!
I took notice of two kids in particular, both about 4. One, a slightly chubby gal who looked to be Hispanic, walked on the balance beam and dismounted. Upon dismounting she looked up into the parent's viewing gallery and our eyes met. I applauded and mouthed, "you did great!" A big grin broke out on her face. Dunno if her parents were there or not but she and I had bonded and she continued to look to me for applause and approval.
Another little stinker, about four years old, walked the balance beam and, as taught, pointed his toes and took exaggerated steps, much like a fashion model on a runway. Cute as hell. and
he did great! He would then walk the balance beam again, this time he would extend his legs out to the side, bring them back to the balance beam, and move forward, taking alternate steps ... all the time remembering to point his toes. Remarkable! Meanwhile, at the back of the gym there were the more advanced students. The were working the high bar, doing front giant swings and beautiful fly-away dismounts, all the while maintaining lovely form and pointed toes. Nearby, other kids the same age were running up and doing front flips and back flips, all perfectly formed. Amazing! This was a series of routines you would expect from high school and college kids, not 10-12 years olds!
At the end of the session we praised young Alex, with little reaction from her. Daddy was holding his little girl and that's all she cared about. Grandpa and grandma were just a couple of old folks who happened to be there.
We left for home and stopped at Fish House Vera Cruz for a delicious (and pricey) fish dinner. It had been a great day and this topped things off just fine.

Friday was a repeat performance in that I escorted Evelyn Madison to her Physical Therapy appointment at Kaiser Permanente in San Marcos. She did wonderfully well. She is recovering from her fractured hip and subsequent hip replacement with great speed. She is actuallly walking a great deal without her walker . . . somewhat gingerly, but walking. In about a month I fully expect her to begin running a 4-minute mile. After her Physical Therapy session I also treated her to an early dinner at Fish House Vera Cruz. Two days in a
row, at Fish House Vera Cruz, with two different and two wonderful ladies! My cup runneth over! ••••• I watched the White House Correspondent’s Dinner Saturday night and came away appalled.
First, the president of the association, Margaret Talev, of Bloomberg News, did a horrible job as emcee of the event, feeling compelled, it seems, to name every journalist and every wanna-be journalist . . about as interesting as listening to someone read names from a phone book. Boring. I was about to turn it off but decided to hand for the “guest speaker.” Michelle Wolf should be ashamed of herself. She was not only not funny but she was tasteless, insensitive, vulgar, rude, and foul-mouthed, throwing fbombs left, right and center.
I do not like women who use language like that in polite society. Nor am I fond of men who use language like that. I would not dignify Michelle Wolf by calling her a comedian as it demeans real comedians.
I am mystified as to who the lamebrain was that booked her. She is known by reputation as being foulmouthed. If she continues to be booked by promoters I hope the public boycotts her. We don’t need people like that spreading toxic language amongst us. It wound up as being pretty much a waste of an otherwise perfectly fine Saturday evening. I would have rather read a good book . . something I normally have little available time to do. The Paper keeps me a wee bit too busy. Just a few notes from sunny California.

Kitten Season is in Full Swing at Humane Society – Five beautiful kittens were among the first arrivals of the season. Quince, Robin, Hermia, Oberon and Puck were brought in as strays after they were found at a barn in Imperial Beach. When they arrived, the kittens were just two weeks old and several were underweight. They were nourished with specialized formula so they could grow healthy and strong, then placed all five in a loving foster home until they were big enough to find families of their own. Today, four of the five have been adopted, and the fifth, Hermia, is serving a very important purpose. She was matched with another orphaned kitten who came in with no mother or siblings. Because contact with littermates is critical to a kitten’s development, Hermia will act as this little one’s “buddy” until they’re both big enough to find new families. “The lifesaving work of the Kitten Nursery is only possible because of you. Thank you for your support and making sure that beautiful babies like these have the best chance at a happy, healthy life. Check out the Kitten Nursery by checking out the Purina Kitten Cam, generously sponsored by Purina, which is live now that the Kitten Nursery is open. Also, a virtual Kitten Shower is being held to help raise donations for the many supplies needed for the Kitten Nursery. Shower gifts and donations are greatly appreciated. The kittens will thank you also. Contact the Humane Society at 619.299.7012, or visit sdhumane.org.

Only Losers Litter Cleaning up Vista One Bucketful at a Time - A group of Caped Community Crusaders in Vista picked up ten bags of trash and two bags of recyclables recently. Only Losers Litter tarted cleanups in Vista in January 2017; 331 concerned citizens participated in eight trashwalks in 2w017 and 98 have participated in four trashwalks so far in 2018. Sarah and Alexis Panchevre encourages participation by students and families, young and old, anyone who wants to improve the cleanliness of our community. Nancy B Jones represents The Woman's Club of Vista, working on publicity and keeping the participation records. The next Only Losers Litter TrashWalks will be May 20 and June 10 at 4pm, locations TBA. Visit on facebook *onlyloserslitter.com, or the website at http://onlyloserslitter.com. BackFence Society founder Sarah Spinks wrote “One Piece at a Time - Next time you see someone throwing trash on the ground, make them accountable. Be the change you wish to see in the world and pick up that strangers trash. Voice your disgust toward litter everywhere you go. Your intolerance will be contagious. Connect with your community through a mutual disdain for the improper disposal of refuse. Reclaim your community from the ‘tragedy of the commons’ and unite in an unequivocal hate against the indefensible violation of littering. Real change starts with small victories. Let the world know that you do not tolerate littering. If you see someone litter, call them out. Litter is a communal embarrassment and it’s our duty to shame those who refuse to reform their littering ways. Share the message with shirts, signs, stickers, or posters. Make a difference by joining a litter trash walk in Vista by signing up here, or organize a trash walk of you own. Let’s do a better job of loving where
we live and passing the message along to those who need to hear it most, because ONLY LOSERS LITTER.”
Pioneering Blood Cancer Research is Unlocking Cancer Cures – Recently, more than 20,000 world-class cancer researchers shared the latest advancements at the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) Annual Meeting in Chicago. You may have seen headlines heralding exciting progress in lung cancer and other solid tumor cancers. Did you know that many of these promising approaches originated in blood cancer research? The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) is proud to pioneer cutting-edge blood cancer research that is fueling important breakthroughs across the cancer landscape. For example, LLS played a major role in supporting work that led to the first monoclonal antibody cancer therapy approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA): rituximab. This game-changing therapy boosts the immune system’s attack on cancer cells by attaching itself to a protein called an antigen, found on the surface of cells. Antigens are often over expressed on cancer cells, making them attractive targets.
Rituximab was first approved for nonHodgkin lymphoma in 1997, and later for chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) and autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis. Today, there are more than a dozen monoclonal antibodies for multiple types of cancer, each targeting a specific antigen. Monoclonal antibodies also form the basis of a powerful immunotherapy called checkpoint inhibitors, which are showing incredible promise for treating lung cancer and other solid tumor cancers. Blood cancer research, including LLS-funded work, is advancing the next generation of breakthroughs. The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) is the world’s largest voluntary health organization dedicated to funding blood cancer research, education and patient services. LLS’s mission is to Cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families. For more information, visit their website at www.LLS.org, or call their national office at 1/888.557.7177.
Flags of Valor—Veteran Owned, Veteran Operated, Combat Veteran Made – Flags of Valor is far more than a veteran-run business. From inception, we’ve been driven by three distinct ideas. First, that our combat veterans deserve opportunity. Second, the belief that Made in America still matters. Third, that giving back to community and country is core to our national identity. My military service began in the US Army as a paratrooper in the 82nd Airborne. I briefly left active duty to attend the University of Alabama but when I witnessed the attacks of 9/11 I felt called to return to serviced again. I enrolled in Air Force pilot training and became a special operations pilot. After eight consecutive combat deployments to the Middle East, Afghanistan and the Horn of Africa, I found myself rehabbing from a service-related injury. I needed a new way to focus while I rebuilt my body. I began woodworking as a physical and mental therapeutic outlet. Soon after, my hobbgy turned into an obsession; one of both pride and patriotism. Flags of Valor is the result of this journey. After many failed attempts, I was finally able to transform my love of woodworking into skilled craftsmanship. It changed my life and the results can be seen in the products we produce today – handcrafted custom pieces of pure Americana. Flags of Valor is a Veteran-owner, Veteranoperated, and Combat Veteran-made company. Our team is tremendously skilled and constantly growing. The majority of our craftsmen are service-disabled with significant combat-related injuries. We’ve created an environment where teamwork is foundational and camaraderie is supreme. We are working diligently to grow so we can hire more veterans and expand our line of American-made products. As we approach Memorial Day, we want to say thank you to all of the American Veterans who served and sacrificed in defense of our great nation. Whether you are military, a first responder, public servant, educator, business person, or simply a proud American who loves your country, we have a flag for you. Thank you for your time and support. Yours in service, Brian Lee Steorts, President, Flags of Valor. Juried Art & Photography Awards

This was written by Rosemary LaBonte to the editors of a California newspaper in response to an article written by Ernie Lujan who suggests we should tear down the Statue of Liberty because the immigrants of today aren’t being treated the same as those who passed Ellis Island and other ports of entry. The paper never printed this response, so her husband sent it out via internet.
They had waved goodbye to their birth place to give their children a new life and did everything in their power to help their children assimilate into one culture. Nothing was handed to them. No free lunches, no welfare, no labor laws to protect them. All they had were the skills and craftsmanship they had brought with them to trade for a future of prosperity.
Maybe we should turn to our history books and point out to people like Mr. Lujan why today's American is not willing to accept this new kind of immigrant any longer. Back in 1900 when there was a rush from all areas of Europe to come to the United States, people had to get off a ship and stand in a long line in New York and be documented.
Some would even get down on their hands and knees and kiss the ground. They made a pledge to uphold the laws and support their new country in good and bad times. They made learning English a primary rule in their new American households and some even changed their names to blend in with their new home.
Most of their children came of age when World War II broke out. My father fought alongside men whose parents had come straight over from Germany , Italy , France and Japan. None of these 1st generation Americans ever gave any thought about what country their parents had come from. They were Americans fighting Hitler, Mussolini and the Emperor of Japan . They were defending the United States of America as one people.
When we liberated France, no one in those villages were looking for the French American, the German American or the Irish American. The people of France saw only Americans. And we carried one flag that represented one country. Not one of those immigrant sons would have thought about picking up another country's flag and waving it to represent who they were. It would have been a disgrace to their parents who had sacrificed so much to be here. These immigrants truly knew what it meant to be an American. They stirred the melting pot into one red, white and blue bowl.
And here we are with a new kind of immigrant who wants the same rights and privileges. Only they want to achieve it by playing with a different set of rules, one that includes the entitlement card and a guarantee of being faithful to their
I'm sorry, that's not what being an American is all about. I believe that the immigrants who landed on Ellis Island in the early 1900's deserve better than that for all the toil, hard work and sacrifice in raising future generations to create a land that has become a beacon for those legally searching for a better life. I think they would be appalled that they are being used as an example by those waving foreign country flags.And for that suggestion about taking down the Statue of Liberty, it happens to mean a lot to the citizens who are voting on the immigration bill.
I wouldn't start talking about dismantling the United States just yet.

URGENCY ORDINANCE ADOPTED
Ordinance No. 2018-1465 AN URGENCY ORDINANCE OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF SAN MARCOS, CALIFORNIA, REAUTHORIZING THE PUBLIC, EDUCATIONAL AND GOVERNMENTAL (PEG) FEE AGAINST STATE FRANCHISE HOLDERS OPERATING WITHIN THE CITY OF SAN MARCOS PURSUANT TO CALIFORNIA PUBLIC UTILITIES CODE SECTION 5870(n) TO CONTINUE SUPPORTING PEG CHANNEL FACILITIES AND ACTIVITIES WHEREAS, California Public Utilities Code (PUC) section 5870(n), which was enacted as part of the Digital Infrastructure and Video Competition Act of 2006 (DIVCA), authorizes local agencies to adopt an ordinance establishing a fee to support public, educational and governmental (PEG) channel facilities and activities; and WHEREAS, on February 26, 2008, pursuant to its authority under PUC section 5870(n), the City adopted Ordinance Numbers 2008-1299 and 2008-1301 to establish a one percent (1%) PEG fee for any State franchise holder operating within the jurisdiction of the City; and
WHEREAS, PUC section 5870(n) provides that an ordinance establishing a PEG fee shall expire, and may be reauthorized, upon the expiration of a State franchise certificate; and WHEREAS, Time Warner Cable Pacific West LLC, dba Charter Communications (Time Warner), currently holds a California Video Franchise Certificate (Franchise Number 0020), issued by the California Public Utilities Commission (Commission), with an effective date of January 2, 2018 through January 2, 2028; and
WHEREAS, the City recently discovered that the Commission issued the current franchise certificate to Time Warner on October 27, 2017 based on the impending expiration date of its previous certificate on January 2, 2018; and WHEREAS, given the short time frame within which legislation must become effective to protect the City’s PEG fees, the City finds that an urgency ordinance is necessary for the immediate protection of the public heath, safety and welfare; and WHEREAS, California Government Code section 36937 expressly authorizes local agencies to adopt an urgency ordinance for the immediate preservation of the public peace, health or safety; and
WHEREAS, the City desires to reauthorize Ordinance Numbers 2008-1299 and 2008-1301 and the PEG fee established under such Ordinances effective immediately to continue supporting PEG channel facilities and activities within the City. NOW, THEREFORE, the City Council of the City of San Marcos, California, in accordance with the freedom afforded to charter cities generally, and by the Charter of the City
of San Marcos specifically, does ordain as follows:
Section 1.Recitals. The foregoing recitals are true and correct. Section 2. Reauthorization of Ordinance Numbers 2008-1299 and 2008-1301. The City hereby reauthorizes Ordinance Numbers 2008-1299 and 2008-1301, and the PEG fee established under such Ordinances, pursuant to PUC section 5870(n) to continue supporting PEG channel facilities and activities within the City. The fee shall remain unchanged and is in full effect as to all State franchise holders operating within the City. Section 3.F i n d i n g s and Purpose. The adoption of this urgency Ordinance is necessary for the immediate protection of the public peace, health or safety. Pursuant to Government Code section 36937 and to protect the public peace, health or safety, the City Council finds and declares that:
(a) PUC section 5870(n), which was enacted as part of DIVCA, authorizes the City to adopt an ordinance establishing a fee to support PEG channel facilities and activities.
(b) On February 26, 2008, the City adopted Ordinance Numbers 20081299 and 2008-1301 establishing a 1% fee for the support of PEG channel facilities and activities within the City, which is codified under SMMC section 14.25.070. (c) California Video Franchise Certificate (Franchise Number 0020) was granted to Time Warner by the Commission to provide video service in the City’s jurisdiction.
(d) The City was not aware of the January 2, 2018 expiration date of Time Warner’s previous Stateissued franchise certificate, or that the Commission issued a new certificate to Time Warner with an effective date of January 2, 2018 through January 2, 2028. (e) PUC section 5870(n) provides that an ordinance establishing a fee to support PEG channel facilities and activities shall expire, and may be reauthorized, upon the expiration of a State franchise certificate.
(f) To continue collecting the PEG fee from State franchise holders under Ordinance Numbers 20081299 and 2008-1301, the City must reauthorize Ordinance Numbers 2008-1299 and 2008-1301 effective immediately.
(g) If the PEG fee is not reauthorized immediately, the City may lose funding for its PEG channel facilities and activities, which could jeopardize a reliable means by which the City communicates with its residents. Any lapse in funding may also lead to confusion among State franchise holders operating within the City regarding the continued payment of PEG fees, which could cause the City to incur additional costs to recover any overdue fees. (h)
It is essential that
• Page 19 • May 3, 2018
the City adopt this Ordinance to reauthorize the PEG fee on an urgency basis. Government Code section 63937 authorizes local governments to adopt an urgency ordinance for the immediate preservation of the public peace, health or safety.
(i) It is necessary for the City to reauthorize the collection of the PEG fee for the immediate preservation of the public peace, health or safety. The City depends upon the PEG fee to support PEG channel facilities and activities, which provide PEG outreach to the community and also provide City residents with important civil programming, including, but not limited to, emergency alerts, public safety broadcasts, and community and governmental news.
(j) This is not a project within the meaning of Section 15378 of the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) Guidelines because there is no potential for it to result in a physical change in the environment, either directly or indirectly. In the event this Ordinance is found to be subject to CEQA, it is exempt from CEQA pursuant to the exemption contained in CEQA Guidelines section 15061(b)(3) because it can be seen with certainty that there is no possibility of a significant effect on the environment. Section 4. Severability. If any section, sentence, clause or phrase of this Ordinance is determined to be invalid, illegal or unconstitutional by a decision or order of any court or agency of competent jurisdiction, then such decision or order will not affect the validity and enforceability of the remaining portions of this Ordinance. The City Council declares that it would have passed and adopted the Ordinance, and each section, sentence, clause or phrase thereof, regardless of the fact that any one or more sections, subsections, sentences, clauses, or phrases be declared invalid or unconstitutional.
