Editor’s Note: A few years ago our own Kent Ballard had been a student of Sasquatch, also known as Big Foot.
He has given up that study but at one time he was considered something of an expert on this elusive creature. He finally turned his attention to other matters as he was tired of getting phone calls at 3 a.m. wanting the latest info on “Mr. Foot.”
One would have to consider Mr. Ballard to be a believer in Mr. Foot. Several of the following excerpts from emails Kent had exchanged with collegues would indicate as much. Kent is not only a brilliant writer but a mighty good storyteller as well. Witness:
about five old articles from the Star dating back to 1975 or so about bigfoot sightings in this county. He handed them to me and said, "Sleep tight..." Smart ass. One of Kent’s neighbors had a lion caged on his property at one time. A fellow writer wrote Kent, “Did the Bigfeet ever bother your neighbor with the Lion? How did the lion react to bigfoot?”
They had no interaction I'm aware of. Just before I moved here a friend with a good memory went to the library in Indy and looked through old back issues of The Indianapolis Star newspaper. Must have used a computer hooked up to some kind of microfilm device. Anyway, he brought me reprints of The Paper - 760.747.7119
Sydney Long (the lion’s owner) moved about the same time I heard of my first current local bigfoot sighting, about four miles away. It was within a few months one way or the other. When Syd left, he took his beloved lions with him. If I'd had the means to feed them, I'd have volunteered to take them off his hands for pets. They made a helluva racket around sunset. From here, they sounded like that thing that was trying to break through the ship's force field on "Forbidden Planet." Just gawdawful. I should have recorded them.
Had anything like Mr. Foot approached them, they would have raised holy hell and Syd would have been down there with his spotlight and shotgun, and I guess he would have told me about it. So I think the Foots gave them a wide berth, possibly due to their alien (for Indiana) scent. If they'd come close enough the lions would have simply jumped the fence and took off hellbent for elsewhere, which would have been interesting on several different levels. (Three years ago some guy had a lion escape from his property one county south of here. The VERY FIRST WORDS out of the DNR spokesman's mouth on TV was it could not survive in this climate and would soon die. The reporter, later in the same interview, asked the owner where the lion spent most of its time in the winter. "Outside. He liked the

snow." It's never been seen since.) I've seen Syd's male with its big mane covered in snow. It looked magnificently comfortable.
If either of the species had tangled with each other, my money would have been on Mr. Foot & Co.. No question of it. They'd have just broken the lion's necks. Also, the lions pen was within eyesight of the road, and Syd's house was just out of sight. Having enough sense to pick their fights, I'd imagine the bigfoot would not want to be seen wrestling with fullygrown African lions had someone come driving by at night. That would be pretty weird even for Parke County. On the other hand, now that I think about it, they probably wouldn't have given a damn one way or the other. Editor’s Note:

another discussion ensued. This was between Kent and me. Again, the discussion centered around “Mr. Foot.” Kent suggested I check some website links: http://www.bfro.net/
Another massive database-and my favorite back in the day was: http://www.bigfootencounters.com/ While there, take a look at the scientific papers that have been written--most never published by any mainstream scientific magazine--and you'll see people with lots of letters behind their names who are in cahoots with the people who study bigfoot. You can then Google these guys if you want. Make sure to check out "the classics" section. You'll find several things there from the 1800's on in that section that would be of interest to

After being there for a while, one of my friends asked me which waitress I would like to be stuck in an elevator with.

Also, in 1927 a trapper was picked up in his sleeping bag, slung over the shoulder of a bigfoot, and carried up into the mountains for hours. I don't know if she still has it on her site or not, but she had an interview with the old man that was done in the early 1980's, I believe, while he was still alive and still telling the same story, no changes at all, since the day he escaped and made his way to a timber mill then back to civilization. For almost sixty years people questioned him, prodded and pried, and tried to put words in his mouth. He was steadfast in in story--and it's damned interesting, regardless of your opinion on bigfoot--to the day he died. See if you can find the reports from the USGS heliA Sad Tale With a Somewhat Happy Ending
There was a guy and he had a girlfriend called Lorraine. She was very pretty and he liked her a lot.
One day he went to work to find that a new girl had started working there. Her name was Clearly, and she was absolutely gorgeous. He began to like her and after a while it became obvious that she was interested in him too. But, he was a loyal man and he wouldn't get involved with Clearly while he was still going out with Lorraine. He decided that there was nothing for him to do but to break up with Lorraine and date the new girl. He planned several times to tell Lorraine but he couldn't bring himself to do it. One day as they were walking along the river bank, Lorraine slipped and fell in]to the river. The current carried her off and she drowned.
The guy stopped for a moment by the river and then ran off smiling and singing..."I can see Clearly now Lorraine is gone..." ••••• The toilet seat was invented in Minnesota, but twenty years later a North Dakotan invent-
copter pilots who were flying over Mt. St. Helens in the weeks before it erupted. They reported seeing a whole family--tribe?--of bigfoot moving through a wide clearing, getting the hell away from the volcano before it blew. (A lot of wildlife evacuated the area. This makes sense, what with all the earthquakes and rumbling and steam venting. Common sense would have told you and me to get out of the area too.) I've read of forest fire fighters coming across the charred carcasses of bigfoot, and being told they were bears. They knew damned good and well these things were no bears, but state and federal officials suddenly helicoptered into the areas and made bloody sure everyone present verbally agreed they were "bears" and leaned on them pretty heavily. The remnants of the "bears" were airlifted out. I'm not sure if any of these accounts are in "Bigfoot Encounters" or not.

Also, in his youth Teddy Roosevelt traveled the Pacific Northwest and led "the strenuous life." In his travels he met another trapper who told him a pretty harrowing tale of a bigfoot with absolutely no sense of humor. It killed his partner and was stalking him and he bugged out of the area without packing anything. Apparently TR believed the man, and he repeated the story often. And nobody called him on it because he was Teddy Roosevelt and would knock you on your ass if you made fun of him. You'll find TR's story in Bigfoot Encounters. There's more on both sites than I can possibly write about. Be advised there are quite a few websites devoted to bigfoot, but these were the best I ever came across *especially when it came to debunking hoaxes*.

mined to do so and have a lot of time, help, and money to waste. But a good bigfoot researcher can catch your ass and expose you, eventually, or at least ask enough uncomfortable questions to make your story very, very questionable. Also these sites have more of a realworld scientific flavor to them. Note the calculations on bone structure that would *have* to be inside the bodies of blurry photographs if these things were really living creatures. You can also find all kinds of cool information on these sites about things in general, like how to determine the weight of something that left a mark in the ground. I stress again that the vast majority of bigfoot are very peaceful, even gentle creatures. But geeze--while I'm sitting here thinking about it for the first time in a long time, I can remember hearing stories that would make a guy mess his pants that were investigated and *never* proven to be hoaxes or lies.
Bigfoot is kinda like that French explorer's description of a raccoon--"This animal is very dangerous. When attacked, it defends itself!" Somewhere in the proposed article, I'd like to tell people to *never* try to harm a bigfoot, especially never to shoot one. For your readers, it would probably be best if I took the stance that these are very rare and possibly endangered creatures, therefore do no harm. That's BS, but it sounds better and takes less explanation than saying if you're stupid enough to attack a bigfoot either he or one of his buddies will rip your head off. It's really simple when you think about it. They're just like humans, no different. You start shooting at a man, and either he or someone else will come along and start shooting back at you. We're very dangerous. We defend ourselves and our loved ones. So does Mr. Foot. On the other hand, I've read and heard countless accounts of hunters who
were in blinds or tree stands and saw a bigfoot come ambling along. Naturally, the hunters were scared silly and aimed their weapons at the critter. And all of them said they just couldn't pull the trigger. It was too human. Some of them said the bigfoot struck them as so human that they feared being charged with murder if they fired. In these two sites I've given you, you can lose yourself for days on end. I don't know if any of the information will change your opinion about their reality or not, but that's not my goal. The idea here is to show you just how damned many people claim to see these things, where they're seen at around the world, and hopefully you will read enough to realize most of the people who did encounter them wish they'd never seen one. It overwhelms many people, turns their whole understanding of the universe upside down, and leaves them changed people forever wondering if they're nuts or if things are simply much different than they had been led to believe all their lives. I've personally spoken to people who used those exact words--"I wish I'd never seen the damned thing." About the Author:
Contrary to many suggestions by certain ‘friends’ of Kent Ballard, most of whom make up a rather nefarious rogue’s gallery, Mr. Foot is NOT Kent Ballard in disguise.
He is, in fact, a retired journeyman machinist who owns 71 acres of land somewhere in Indiana. Land where Mr. Foot may, in fact, live, or has lived. He and his wife, Mrs. Foot . . . er, Tess Ballard, live together in the wilderness amongst the deer, racoons, foxes, trees, mosses, streams, lakes, and occasional visits by strangers that go bump into the night and who have lots of hair on their bodies.
Kent Ballard is also a master storyteller as long time readers of The Paper will readily attest. His classic “The Last Flight,” a poignant look at an old, old pilot who gets to fly in his beloved Lockheed PV-2 “Harpoon,” is a prime example of storytelling and writing at its best. (We’ll probably repriese that in 2014). (See http://issuu.com/awodigitaledition/docs/the_paper_nov 15_2012?e=2076238/3868278. We’ll have more of Kent’s stories in The Paper. Stay tuned.

On Sunday, April 27th, at about 1:30 AM, the Escondido Police Department received a report of a collision involving two vehicles at the intersection of Valley Pkwy and Broadway.
Officer Putulowski arrived two minutes later to find both vehicles on the N/W corner sidewalk of City Hall. Officer Putulowski immediately noticed that one of the involved vehicles, a gray Nissan Altima, was on fire with the driver unconscious. He attempted to put the fire out with an extinguisher but the fire was too large. Officer Putulowski risked his own safety by entering the vehicle and pulling the driver to safety. The driver had what appeared to be significant traumatic injuries to the head.
The second vehicle involved, a tan Lincoln Navigator, had two occupants inside. The driver was trapped inside and had to be extricated by the Escondido Fire Department with the Jaws of Life. The Fire Department took all three patients to a local area hospital where they were all found to have sustained multiple minor injuries. The driver of the Nissan, a Hispanic male

My pal, Bruce Krider, and I were headed up to San Bernardino to rescue a dog that, if not rescued, would have been killed (euthanized - a more polite word for killing.) We had just gotten on Hiway 78 from San Marcos, heading for 15 North when Bruce noticed the new Hooters Restaurant and Saloon that had just opened in San Marcos. "You ever been to Hooters?" he asked.
"Never have," I said. "Never even had an interest in going. I'm pretty much aware that women have boobs but that's never been a big reason for me to go to a restaurant."
adult whose identity was still unknown at the time of this release, was arrested for Felony Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol/Drugs Causing Injury.
Preliminary investigation indicates the Lincoln was driving Westbound on Valley Pkwy with a green light when the Nissan ran the red light Northbound, causing the collision. This investigation is ongoing at this time and is being conducted by Officer Bruce “Tony” Masten of the Traffic Division. Anyone with information on this case is encouraged to call Officer Masten at the above phone number. Warrant Scam
It's a startling phone call you could receive: "There's a warrant out for your arrest." A scam going on right now in many counties hopes that fear will cause you to act without thinking. The caller is very pushy and poses as an employee of the Sheriff's Department. To make the pitch very convincing, the scammer will: • use the name of an actual Sheriff's Department employee

"Well, I'm about to make an executive decision," he said, "we will need to have lunch before we head for San Berdoo. Fuel for our bodies, so to speak. Plus, we'll make sure you are no longer a virgin when it comes to going to Hooters." (Bruce is, after all, the President of The Puppy Coalition. I'm a co-founder but, in his presence, a mere vassal. He makes all the executive decisions. I just nod my head meekly and follow his orders.) So off to Hooters we went.
Impressive layout. Neat, clean, large. Completely remodeled from the former restaurant. Good beer list which didn't do me much good. I never drink in the middle of the day. Not prudish . . . just that alcohol puts me to sleep and I'm sure Bruce invited me along so he'd have someone to talk to during a moderately long drive, not to have someone he could watch sleep. Bruce, however, ordered a beer. He can handle it. I can't.
We both ordered sandwiches and they were absolutely terrific. No complaints on the size of the sandwich, or the price. Service was very slow. Bruce had to wait a good five to ten minutes for his beer to be served. Waited quite a while
Letters to the Editor Interpretation
Letters to the Editor can be a great way for people to voice their opinion about what they read in the paper itself and what is going on in their community. Sometimes people use this platform to complain about what they feel is incorrect or unjust. That's a good thing, even if people with a different opinion don't want to hear it. When a paper prints a letter complaining about the paper itself, it shows they are willing to print alternative viewpoints. It adds to the public discourse, and that, too, is a good thing.
That's why it is so funny that Jim Sartor felt the need to write a complaining letter to the editor about people that write complaining letters to the editor. Complaining about
for the sandwiches to be served. When they did arrive, Bruce had ordered mustard. No mustard. He asked the waitress again for mustard. She said she'd get it. She didn't. After five minutes, I, being less patient than Bruce, got up and went to the kitchen and asked for mustard. Bruce got his mustard. I'm not used to such slow service. However, I think this was only their second week open for business so I'm sure the wait staff were learning the ropes and that may have been the reason for the delay . . . still . . ... Orange and white are the 'team colors' for Hooters.
As far as I could tell, every waitress there had boobs. It was very evident that every waitress was wearing a pushup bra. If I wore a push-up bra, I would have nice looking boobs . .. and cleavage. A couple of the waitresses clearly needed a push up bra . . . most of the others were naturally endowed and the push-up bra just emphasized the fact. Big boobs, by themselves, have never been a major factor to me when it comes to enjoying the company of women. Still, I recognize it's a clever capitalization on a readily identifiable corporate trademark by offer-
complainers, now THAT is hilarious, not to mention hypocritical.
My advice to Jim Sartor: Take your own advice. If you don't like someone's letter, ignore it. If you expect other people to abide your advice, you need to follow it yourself. You're just as much of a complainer as the letter writers you referenced, and hypocritical on top of it. My advice to everyone else: If you have an opinion and want to express it, do so, and pay no attention to the hypocrites like Jim Sartor that tell you not to. Bunny Meyers Vista
Editor’s Note: Thank you, Bunny Meyers, but, really, I think Mr. Sartor’s letter was a bit tongue in cheek and parody. We enjoyed it. Public Prayer

ing pretty waitresses with an emphasis on their boobs. I'm probably not their typical corporate target, however.
Bruce felt a need to document that, thanks to him, I was no longer a virgin and had, indeed, finally visited a Hooters. So he pulled out his trusty cellphone, with camera, and took a couple photos. I, being very modest, choose not to print them here.
I can confirm, however, I was fully clothed . . . but if I had a skimpy shirt on and had a push-up bra, I would naturally have competed with every waitress there . . . for attention. I have lovely cleavage. And I would not have forgotten Bruce's mustard.
PS: Following the good food and good times we had at Hooter’s, we headed to San Bernadino on our original mission, rescuing a dog from certain death. He, just a pup, was scheduled to be euthanized but Bruce Krider saved him and arranged to pull him from the kennel where he had been held. He paid the vet fees and we soon found ourselves riding back to North County with a very grateful and affectionate

Ms. Mues' Blog to the Freedom from Religion Foundation (FFRF) and the American Civil Liberties Union. By coincidence, it appears that the FFRF has just settled a prayer suit against the folks at Pismo Beach, CA. Because of the relevance of this ruling to Escondido, I am taking the liberty of incorporating a verbatim copy of it as part of my letter. "Calif. city settles prayer suit with FFRF, April 16, 2014
Reaching a settlement with the Freedom From Religion Foundation to end FFRF's lawsuit against the city, the Pismo Beach City Council voted April 15 to stop all prayers before its meetings and to abolish the city chaplain position. FFRF and Dr. Sari Dworkin, a Pismo Beach resident and FFRF member, sued the city Nov. 1, 2013, in Superior Court in San Luis Obispo, alleging the official prayers and chaplaincy violated the California Constitution.
Before each council meeting, the city chaplain, Paul Jones, or one of his religious substitutes, gave a Christian prayer. Prayers often included egre-
gious factual mistakes, including manufactured quotes by America's founders. Jones’ prayers pressured citizens to live a Christian or biblical lifestyle, to vote for "righteous" leaders and make decisions that "honor" his God. The city agreed to pay the plaintiffs nominal damages and attorney fees totaling about $47,500 and to end the practice of praying at meetings and abolish the chaplain position. The settlement carries the force of law and will be accompanied by a court order. "This is a significant victory to keep all prayer — sectarian or nonsectarian — out of Pismo Beach public meetings," said FFRF Co-President Annie Laurie Gaylor.
The U.S. Supreme Court is poised to rule on the issue of sectarian prayer in Town of Greece v. Galloway, a New York case. FFRF's Pismo Beach victory will stand regardless of the high court's ruling in that case. "We're entirely satisfied by the outcome," Gaylor said. Pismo Beach established an official city chaplaincy in 2005 and appointed Jones, a Pentecostal preacher, to the post. He’s affiliated with the International Church of the Foursquare Gospel, which
Jones delivered 112 of the 126 prayers scheduled by the council between Jan. 1, 2008, and Oct. 15, 2013. All but one of the 126 prayers were addressed to the Christian god. Many were lengthy and more like sermons than prayers". End of quote. Finally, I take strong exception to George Lackerdas' suggestion (Letter in the same issue of The Paper) that objectors should arrive after the Escondido pre-Council Meeting prayer. All this does is to perpetuate a blatantly unconstitutional practice. This argument was used during the Civil Rights Movement, as one of the many futile attempts to delay the introduction of civil liberties in the South. Let me conclude by saying:: After the Pismo Beach settlement, can Escondido be far behind? Sorab K. Ghandhi Escondido CA

This is a tax levied on residents living within the state responsibility areas (SRA’s), which are regions not covered by protection. fire local However, even if a homeowner within a SRA does pay for local fire protection, they still have to pay the additional fire tax.

Musician, Martin Espino, will delight you with “Sounds of Ancient Mexico.”
I strongly opposed the legislation. Unfortunately, the fire tax remains, and more that 100,000 San Diego County residents have had to pay.
SB 1413 will increase the fire tax bill payment deadline from 30 days to 60 days. This will prevent additional fines and provide more flexibility. The fire tax is an expensive burden that residents deserve more time to pay. Californians pay some of the highest taxes in the country and have earned every bit of relief we can provide.

Rainy Days are Coming; We Must be Prepared
On April 16, Governor Brown called a special legislative session to discuss creating a rainy day reserve fund. Creating a reserve should be a priority for the state and I applaud the Governor’s interest in working toward restoring California’s fiscal stability. In 2010, a bipartisan agreement placed Assembly Constitutional Amendment 4 (ACA 4) on the ballot to create a rainy day fund. Unfortunately, a vote has been delayed and some have suggested weakening the agreed-upon proposal.
Apparently, the Governor has concerns about ACA 4 as currently written. I fear that any changes to ACA 4 would result in a “rainy day” in name only fund – one that doesn’t really save any money and that could be spent at any time. While I look forward to hearing his

suggestions, I will not support any plan that would undermine a strong reserve.
While our economic recovery has helped, this year’s budget will be balanced as a result of temporary tax increases. Meanwhile, Governor Brown proposes to grow spending by $8.3 billion this year. This increased spending and our future debt obligations threaten our solvency. The California Taxpayers Association has placed state and local debt at $443 billion (two-thirds carried by the state), which amounts to $11,600 for every man, woman and child. We must never return to the days of $20 billion deficits and endless calls for higher taxes. Establishing a strong rainy day fund would be a significant step toward achieving permanent stability in California’s budgeting process.

With the help of The San Diego Foundation, donors from every community in San Diego have the chance to come together to raise significant funds for local needs – all on a single day. Over 300 nonprofits will be participating and sharing in an incentive pool; so your donation will be even BIGGER: One local organization is ECCDC, Escondido Community Child Development Center, who is launching a community-wide effort to raise funds for 100 “graduation” backpacks ($25 tax-deductible donation) for their preschoolers from low-income families. Children will be ready for kindergarten with a backpack full of their favorite things that encourages the child to progress academically. Remember, mark your calendars for May 6. For one day, every dollar donated through giveBIG through ECCDC means more preschoolers prepared to start Kindergarten with the tools they need to succeed. Another, Palomar Health Foundation is participating also. By making a gift you help them receive incentive giving funds committed by the San Diego Foundation and its sponsors specifically for the GiveBIG event. That means the more donations
throughout the country, one would naturally expect wages to follow suit. Sadly that is not the case. In fact--inflation adjusted--family income has actually declined by nearly thirteen-percent since 2005.

Historically Speaking by Tom Morrow
No one should realistically expect to be paid career-type wages for jobs that are either entry-level or low or no-skill. But an argument can be made that they should at least keep pace with where costs have gone. Minimum Wage Debate has No Easy Answers
In case someone hasn’t noticed, raising the minimum wage for workers on the lowest rungs of the employment ladder has become a new political hot button issue. Politicians from the Democratic Party see this as not merely a social justice issue, but one that can drive a deeper wedge between the Republican Party and the voters that the party needs to regain electoral viability.
A Kiplinger study in spring of 2013 ranked San Diego ninth in cost-of-living in the United States. Living in a region where the cost of living is as much as thirty-percent higher than many comparable regions
This is not an easy situation to deal with. Arguments made by the proponents of raising the minimum wage include a social justice component, but they also point to economic studies that suggest simply raising the bottom rung by a few dollars will have a positive effect on the overall economy. Opponents to the idea counter with the position that increasing wages for workers will make it necessary to raise prices or cut staff, or both, to compensate for the impacts.
I’ve seen and read the comments by people who point to McDonald’s Corporation suggesting that the company “can afford” to pay its workers better. What they either fail to

The Ford Family: An Important Chapter in American History
If ever there was a story deserving of a Hollywood movie, the saga of the Ford family is at the top of that list. Everyone knows Henry Ford was a pioneer in automobile manufacturing, but while he didn’t invent the automobile, Ford was the first automaker to mass produce vehicles. He created the assembly line, making it possible to roll out dozens of automobiles each day. Nearly everyone in American could afford a Model T. Accordingly, cities, counties, states, and the federal government, had to build streets and highways for cars, thus con-

But, as his empire expanded, Henry Ford became a troubled man. He was anti-Semitic and said as much in scathing editorials in his weekly newspaper distributed nationally through his dealerships. Prior to the outbreak of World War II, he was an isolationist, vehemently railing against America getting involved in any war. He made it known his successor would be Edsel, yet, to coin a phrase, never really gave his son “the keys to the car.” Despite Edsel being the president of the company, Henry’s constant criticisms and rejection of ideas helped drive Edsel to an early grave. Examples: Henry steadfastly believed all Americans really needed was the 1915 Model T, one of the company’s biggest all-time sellers. It was Edsel who finally persuaded his father to introduce the 1927 Model A. Then Edsel went to the mat, finally convincing his father the 1932 V-8 engine was the auto power plant of the future. When Edsel wanted to offer multiple colors on auto exteri-

I looked up Escondido’s General Plan and found this information on Smart Growth: Smart Growth Principles
In Defense of Downtown
During the discussion at (last) Wednesday night’s City Council meeting, Deputy Mayor Diaz talked about Smart Growth and the City’s General Plan:
“…Everything that is commonly referred to as Smart Growth, all of those principles were not followed with this project [Safari Highlands Ranch]...in fact the City’s General Plan includes most of our growth in the urban core – up to 5,000 units. Now I understand that not everybody wants to have an urban lifestyle, but the reason that we pushed that is because it’s cheaper, quite frankly to maintain fewer roads, to have people closer to where they live and work, have restaurants, all those kinds of things. Why not focus on creating high quality housing where it makes sense to put that? … We should focus on doing what we set out to do which is build a strong community with the right infrastructure and the Smart Growth principles that are standard planning tools in today’s society. We didn’t build that way 50 years ago but that’s how we should build now. That’s what we should focus on.”
Escondido is largely built-out with limited vacant land available for new development. Updated General Plan policies will guide citizens, developers, city staff, and decision makers over the next decades to facilitate the community‘s long-term vision. The plan‘s smart growth principles represent a shift in focus from ‘how to develop vacant land‘ to ‘how to reinvest in existing neighborhoods.’ [page II-13] Smart Growth Strategy
Capitalize on the city‟s infrastructure investment by: Preserving and enhancing single family development patterns in established neighborhoods; Maintaining residential densities in outlying areas to accommodate growth; and, Guiding additional employment and residential growth toward downtown and urbanized sectors along key transportation corridors. [page II-14]
I live in downtown Escondido in an old house that has been here since the 1950s. Within walking distance are two new residential projects, Contempo condominiums and Latitude 33 apartments– both very nice. I am delighted at having more people
downtown, enlivening Grand. So I must admit I was taken aback by what Councilman Morasco had to say about the urban core following the Deputy Mayor’s comments: I don’t necessarily agree with Olga’s comments about what our desires are and what our plans are to further urbanize and increase the density of our urban core and create more crime and more traffic and more wear and tear on infrastructure and a lot of other things that come along with that. It may be cheaper to build initially but it costs us a ton of money to do that.
First of all, the General Plan that was passed by the voters does encourage greater development downtown. But I find the statement that “urban” development means “more crime” to be insulting, and that it causes “more traffic” and “more wear and tear on the infrastructure” to be unsupportable. Yesterday, I went to the dentist, got some books at the library, picked up shoes from the cobbler and met friends for dinner — and all without ever getting in my car. I find it hard to believe that folks living on the edge of the City cause less traffic and less wear and tear on the infrastructure when they have to get in their car to do almost anything –shop, go to the library, eat out, take their kids to school, you name it.
Councilman Morasco has the right to make whatever argument he wants in support of letting this project move forward. But I don’t think he needs to disparage the principles of Smart Growth nor the City’s urban core to make his point.

conversation.” The media only sees what they want to see, another example of racism or unpopular thought that should be punished, but no one is questioning how or for what purpose this recording was obtained. No one cares about his right to privacy. Where does the harm of racism stop and the harm of thought control supercede? People in relationships always try to control the behavior of each other. Out of jealousy or fear of loss, they rarely show their best side. Was the recording a wire tapped telephone conversation or was she wearing a “wire” to goad him into making racial slurs? Surely she pushes him in that direction long after he wants to end the direction of the argument. Entrapment done by the police is unlawful, so why is it okay done by private citizens? This whole incident is very disturbing. Everyone around him seemed to know for years he was a bigot. Law suits didn’t bring him down, but suddenly he has to pay? Who wants to buy his franchise cheap? There is a lot more to this story, but our journalists are only seeing what they want to see, while our individual freedoms of speech, thought, privacy and right to own business are silently impinged.

Lobbyists for the Construction Industry were successful in their opposition to an Assembly bill that would have established new contracting rules for the North County Transit District — and doubled pay for its board members from $75 to $150 per session.
Assembly Bill 1988 drew heavy opposition from the construction industry who argued, if passed, the bill would have created an uneven playing field for private companies seeking to bid on the public district’s construction projects and some maintenance contracts. The measure would have raised the value of contracts required to go through a formal bidding process from $50,000 to $100,000. The District itself requested the bill be pulled from consideration so discussions could be held between the district and the construction industry to find language that would work for both sides. The District claimed one of the reasons the bill had been introduced was to streamline bidding and allow a quick decision to be made on small jobs such as repairing a sidewalk, rather than go through months of procurement procedures. The industry concerns follow a 2012 audit by consultants SC&H Group that found problems with the way the district manages its contracts. Vista Man Arrested For Vehicle Burglaries
24-year-old Edgar Martinez was arrested as a suspect in several vehicle burglaries in Vista and booked into the Vista jail on three counts of vehicle burglary, conspiracy and outstanding warrants. He was on probation at the time of his arrest and was arrested in his Vista home by members of the Regional Fugitive Task Force. The burglaries took place between February and earlier this month in various residential and commercial areas in Vista.
Some of the property that was stolen included stereo equipment, tires and lawn care equipment, authorities said. The suspect’s home was searched twice but no stolen property was found.
Jeb is a good dog. He is an adult German Shepherd (age unknown: guessing 7-9 yrs). He was turned in by his owners when they went to adopt a new puppy from the Devore animal shelter near San Bernardino on I-215. As he was placed in the cage on wheels where dumped dogs that are used to transport to cages, he watched the family leave with their new pup. He paced back and forth in the small cage and cried loudly. Volunteers there said he was frantic.
He was rescued by the Puppy Coalition Foundation (Escondido) the day he was to be put to sleep and is really hoping for a family again. He is very healthy, neutered, is good with dogs and people and looks like a big teddy bear. Call Bruce at 760-612-9156 for more information.

ors like other companies, Henry flatly rejected the idea declaring, “Buyers can have any color they want as long as it’s black!”
There was a dark side to Henry. He was surrounded by a gang of thugs posing as “security.” The “bodyguards” were led by Harry Bennett, who gained tremendous influence over the old man, coming between father and son. Henry never realized the extent of Bennett’s power. In reality, he had control of the company by intimidating executives and workers and shutting Edsel out. In 1943, Edsel died of stomach cancer, leaving the old man back in charge, but Bennett continued to control Ford. When the war started, the company was not meeting Washington’s demand for aircraft, tanks, various other vehicles, and armaments. Realizing the problem, the War Department took Lt. Henry Ford II, the grandson, out of the Navy and placed him in charge of the company. One of the first decisions the young executive, (who became known

It was my privilege to attend an appreciation luncheon for volunteers recently. Kaiser Permanente was recognizing the volunteers who work in hospice and related health services. When they asked me to step forward and receive a twenty-five year pin for my work as a hospice chaplain I remembered the day I received an appeal for volunteering as a chaplain to minister to hospice patients. Having a military chaplaincy background in hospital and critical care situations I felt this would qualify me to provide this ministry. I will be forever grateful for both the appeal and
Volunteering is a privilege offered by many organizations in our society. It is non-compensated, but the rewards are greater than money. Often, due to the lack of paid personnel and funding the effectiveness of most public serving organizations could not be as efficient. Volunteers are needed in hospitals, police and fire departments, museums, churches and other religious organizations, art centers, and any number of other services. In many cases, persons who are retired with their professional skills, can help in critical areas. Others find new challenges in their service. It often gives new meaning to being a part of a community by serving. All of this is not without reward. While we spend most of our lives earning money, which we need, there is a greater need. It is the satisfaction of doing something because it is needed, people appreciate it, we enjoy it, it is sacrificial (almost spiritual) and we don’t have to report it to the IRS.

On the other side, to hear the business community and their political allies tell it, there has never been a good wage increase and the world will most surely come to an end if
Assigning the notion of the necessity to provide a “living wage” to jobs that require virtually no educational attainment or technical skill—jobs that often are filled by young people living at home while attending school is specious. But denying that decent pay is necessary for our society’s wellbeing is equally so.
Many franchise operations do not have the latitude to simply raise prices to compensate for increased labor costs, they are bound by franchise agreements. This doesn’t even speak to the pressure that the higher wages put on small Mom and Pop businesses.

The Paper • Page 12 • May 01, 2014 you and your car appear on a screen somewhere in Arizona where some Dilbert in a cubicle runs your plate and submits your file. Six weeks later you receive notice from the City of Carlsbad that you’ve been fined $400 for not coming to a complete stop before making your turn. The law has become faceless.

Computers, Culture and Internet Crime-Part II
Since WWII the expansion of human knowledge and accelerating rate of technology have affected our culture in some amazing ways. Folks under thirty have no clue how dramatically technology has changed our culture. For those of us from previous generations, the change has been mind-boggling. Everywhere we see the ubiquitous hand held technologies with instant access to communication and information. Public places are thronged with heads down techno-zombies, fingers dancing like spastic spiders in the pale glow of their smart phones and tablets. Technology is everywhere. You make a right turn in Carlsbad and see a blinding flash. 02 milliseconds later a digital image of

Banking, paying taxes, getting a degree, shopping for just about anything from cars to groceries and even performing some jobs can be done in pajamas without ever meeting or talking with a real human. It works both ways. When employees selling goods and services and government workers serving the public don’t actually have to deal face to face with real people, mindless bureaucracy thrives. Legislatures gush new laws, government agencies churn out regulations, and courts legislate from the bench. Give the neighbor’s six year old a grandfatherly pat on the butt and you could wind up as a registered sex offender with a permanent ankle bracelet.
Lets say you are surfing the WWW when suddenly a strange screen pops up. It has a large picture of you with your name in bold letters. It resembles a post office wanted poster. The text reads that you have been observed by the FBI (CIA, ICE, Homeland Security etc) visiting illegal web sites or illegally downloading copyrighted material. If you pay a $400 fine, the case against you will be dropped (must pay by irrevocable “money pak.”) If you do not pay the fine within 72 hours, a warrant for your arrest will be issued and you will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. What are you going to do? Most people would recognize this a scam and ignore it, but some will wonder . . . did I accidentally (or deliberately)
visit a porn site or download something illegal? Should I risk ignoring this notice? We all know that our governments spy on us, we hear it every day. We also have heard horror stories about how our great lumbering bureaucratic governments ruin the lives of innocent people and incarcerate folks for minor technical violations. Perhaps only one in a hundred users will be paranoid enough to pay the “fine” but if the cyber criminals send out ten million of these sham notices, a 1% hit rate will gross them 40 million dollars. Next week we’ll have more fun examples of how our electronic addictions make us “marks” for “social engineering ploys”, criminal, political and commercial.
With computers providing communication, news, recreation, entertainment, shopping and handling legal responsibilities, it’s not too surprising that some may trust their PC more than out-of-touch government agencies or brick and mortar merchants with their less than cordial staffing. The cyber criminals know all this and use that knowledge to rip you off.
