Japanese Envoys Fly to Manila, 19-20 August 1945 by lyle e davis
It’s a little known and less remembered part of military history but with the surrender decision made by Japan and accepted by the Allies, the many details necessary to implement it had to be conveyed to the Japanese Government. To this end, on 19 August a combined military and diplomatic delegation left Japan in two specially marked "Betty" bombers. After landing at Ie Shima island, near Okinawa, the envoys were flown on to General MacArthur's Manila headquarters in a U.S. transport plane. In a series of meetings there, the Japanese received the Allies' instructions concerning surrender arrangements and initial occupation plans. The "firmness but fairness" shown in Manila favorably impressed the envoys and set the tone for the events that followed. The photos and captions in this story tell the tale.

P-38 Lightnings provided top cover. The top cover was needed because some Japanese officials had ordered the remnants of the Japanese Army Air Force to attack and bring down their own bombers rather than surrender. Instead of flying directly to Iejima, the two Japanese planes flew northeast, toward the open ocean, to avoid their own fighters. Photo via warbirdinformationexchange.org
Sunday, August 19th 1945 Dear Folks,
It is plainly obvious that in August of 1945, on the island if Iejima, it was brutally hot the day the Green Cross Bettys landed. Here one of the two aircraft drops on to the runway as soldiers, the formal welcoming committee and pressmen wait, finding shade where they could. Photo: U.S. Naval Historical Center
Let the surrender begin. B-25J Mitchell bombers of the 345th Bomb Group (The Apaches) lead two Green Cross Mitsubishi G4M “Betty” medium bombers into the island of Iejima (called Ie Shima by the Americans). The 345th Bomb Group (the 498th, 499th, 500th and 501st Squadrons) was based on Iejima and was given the task and the very special honor of escorting the Bettys from Tokyo to the rendezvous with United States Army Air Force C-54s, which would take the Japanese officers and envoys on to Manila to meet with no less than Douglas MacArthur himself.

The two Bettys (ironically and deliberately given the call signs Bataan 1 and Bataan 2 by the Americans) fly low over the East China Sea, inbound for Iejima wearing their hastily painted white surrender scheme and green crosses. One can only imagine what is going on in the conflicted minds of the Japanese airmen as they fly over their own territory in the company of the hated enemy, headed for an event of profound humiliation in front of thousands of enemy soldiers. These two Bettys would become the most photographed Green Cross surrender aircraft of the end of the war. Photo: US Navy
speed operations such as torpedo attacks and it had a tendency to explode into flames when hit by even light enemy fire, leading some unhappy pilots to call them the “Type One Lighter” or “The Flying Lighter.” We can clearly see that the Betty’s traditional armament—nose, tail, waist and dorsal guns—have been removed as demanded by the Americans. As the second Betty landed on the coral airstrip, every eye on the island is trained on them. One cannot even imagine what

this scene looked like to these Japanese as they looked out from the aircraft windows at a sea of mistrust and a new, grim reality.
I found the personal family memoirs of Army combat engineer Leigh Robertson on the web. Leigh was an eyewitness to the arrival on leshima of the Green Cross surrender aircraft. The following link to his memory of that day is perfect as he immediately wrote it down in a letter back home to his parents.
As thousands of suspicious, curious and anxious young men look on, the Japanese pilot brings his Mitsubishi Betty down on to the bleached coral airfield of Iejima. Note the all-metal Douglas C-54 waiting for their arrival.

today. It was the arrival of the Japanese envoys on their way to Manila, to sign the preliminary peace agreement with Gen. MacArthur.
We had known for the last three days that they were going to land here. We expected them yesterday, but they were delayed, for some reason. We went to work this morning as usual, and worked until about ten. Then the word went around that the Japs were coming. We piled into trucks and drove up to the airstrip. We waited expectantly for over an hour. Finally, word went out once more that they would not arrive until 1:30 P.M, so we decided to come on back to camp and eat lunch (we had baked ham, by the way). Just before we left we watched two giant four engine transports (C54s) circle the field and land. These were the planes that would take the Japs on to Manila. Just as I was leaving the mess hall, the news came over the radio that the Jap planes were circling the island, and sure enough, they were! I ran to my tent, put away my mess gear, grabbed my cap and climbed on a truck. It is about two miles to the

airstrip, but we made pretty good time, because all the traffic was going the same way. As we came closer to the field, we became part of a strange procession. Directly in front and to the rear of us were two P-38s (twin engine fighter aircraft). Further on down the line there were tractors, motor graders, and in fact, most every kind of vehicle you can imagine--all loaded with G.I.s. We parked the truck about a quarter mile from the strip and ran the rest of the way. I got separated from the rest of the men, and stopped on a high spot about 75 yards from the strip. I had scarcely gotten settled when the planes started in for a landing. The planes themselves were Japanese “Betty” bombers, with two engines, bearing some resemblance to our B-26. They were painted white, with green crosses. It had been a hasty paint job—you could still see the red of the rising sun showing through the white. Naturally, the planes had been stripped of all armament. They were escorted by two B-25s, and I don’t know how many P-38s, probably a hundred or more. The latter continued to circle the field for an hour or more, until all the excitement was over. Both planes made perfect landings, rolled to the far end of the strip, turned and taxied back to our end. They parked right

I do, too. Especially chicken, pork and beef. Anyway, my teacher sent me to the principal's office. I told him what happened, and he laughed, too. Then he told me not to do it again.
The next day in class my teacher asked me what my favorite live animal was. I told her it was chicken. She asked me why, so I told her it was because you could make them into fried chicken.
She sent me back to the principal's office. He laughed, and told me not to do it again. I don't understand. My parents taught me to be honest, but my teacher doesn't like it when I am.
Today, my teacher asked us to tell her what famous person we admire most. I told her, "Colonel Sanders." Guess where I am now...
She said I wasn't funny, but she couldn't have been right, because everyone else laughed. My parents told me to always tell the truth. I did. Fried chicken is my favorite animal. I told my dad what happened, and he said my teacher was

alongside the two large transports that had arrived earlier. They were dwarfed by comparison to our transports.
We were not permitted within a hundred yards or so of the four airplanes. There were several hundred people gathered around the planes, most likely photographers and Air Corps officers. They pretty well hid from view the events of the next few minutes. I could see various people boarding the transport, but couldn’t tell much about them. Presently they towed one of the Jap planes up a taxiway to a parking area close to where I was sitting. One of our boys pulled his truck right up to the fence, and raised the dump bed. This gave us a grandstand seat, about 15 feet off the ground. When the plane came to rest, the crew started climbing out. There were five in all, dressed in heavy flying clothes. There were two jeeps waiting to take them away. Evidently they didn’t speak English, for there was much waving of hands and shrugging of shoulders. About this time two or three thousand soldiers broke through the ring of guards and started for the Japs. They didn’t have any bad intentions, just curiosity, and wanting to take pictures. I know that if I had been in the place of those Japs, I would have been just a wee bit scared! Apolitical Aphorisms

At any rate, they lost no time in getting into the Jeeps and away from the mob! Finally, they managed to get the crowd back far enough to bring the other “Betty” over to the parking area. After a few minutes one of the C-47s warmed up its engines and taxied onto the strip. With a mighty roar, she started down the runway. Before she got halfway down the runway, she was in the air, on her way to Manila.

offering to the American delegation. The offer of the flowers was rejected by the Americans who felt that it was too soon to make nice with the once haughty Japanese who had treated Allied POWs so roughly. It would be like Auschwitz survivors accepting flowers from the SS, but you had to feel sorry for the young man bearing the gift.
After the Japanese delegates boarded the American C-54 Skymaster at Iejima, they were flown 1,500 kilometres over the South China Sea to Manila, the capital of the Philippines. More than 100,000 Manilans and 1,000 Americans were killed battling the Japanese.
Formalities on the ground were quickly performed and within 20 minutes, the eight official commissioners were guided up a ladder into a massive Douglas C-54 transport aircraft, a luxurious accommodation when compared to the Japanese Bettys. They were then flown to Manila in the Philippines to meet with MacArthur. Photo: U.S. Naval Historical Center
Chief Warrant Officer James Chastain, an air force photographer/photo lab technician, remembers, “Prior to the envoys landing, GI troops had been positioned approximately six feet apart on either side of the landing runway. One of the Betties [sic] had part of the Plexiglas of the tail gunner’s position missing and the person in that position could be plainly seen. As the Betty settled to the runway for a less than perfect landing the person in the tail gunner’s position saw all of the people standing behind the GIs that lined the runway and it appeared that he wasn’t sure what action our guards were going to take, he immediately scurried forward out of sight. Massive rolls of barbed wire prevented us getting in position for close up shots of the Envoys transfer to the awaiting C-54s. Later when we were able to view the Betties more closely, one could see that paint jobs were slightly streaked as if they had been hurriedly applied by brush. One could even see the old red “meat Ball” through the thin white paint. However the green crosses had been applied with more care.”
Japanese officers and leaders, with a mandate to negotiate their surrender, cross from their Mitsubishi Betty to awaiting C-54 aircraft which will take them to Manila. The truth is there were no negotiations. Surrender was unconditional. But they were there to accept the orders of surrender. The formal signing of the surrender would take place aboard the USS Missouri in Tokyo Bay on 2 September 1945 (two weeks later). Photo: U.S. Naval Historical Center
The two Green Cross Bettys would stay until the delegation returned the next day from Manila. During that time a group of airmen, sailors, and Seabees gathered for a victory photograph like no other, on top of the first Betty to land.

One of the most attractive Japanese aircraft of the Second World War was the Mitsubishi Ki-46 Dinah. Here we see a Green Cross Dinah leaving the plateau airfield of Vunakanau, outside of Rabaul with a delegation to work out the details of the surrender of the Japanese Army and Navy to the Royal New Zealand Air Force at Jacquinot Bay, New Britain. The Japanese who painted this aircraft either misunderstood the order to paint out the Hinomaru marking or just plain couldn’t do it, as the aircraft carries both the red “meatball” and the Green Cross of surrender. Jacquinot Bay Airport (IATA: JAQ) is today an airport near Jacquinot Bay in the East New Britain Province on the island of New Britain in Papua New Guinea. The airstrip was liberated by the Australian Army in 1944. Following the Japanese surrender, several Japanese aircraft were flown from Vunakanau Airfield to Jacquinot Bay Airfield. Photo via Flickr

U.S. Congressman Duncan Hunter, a Marine Corps veteran of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, called on authorities in Mexico today to expedite Andrew Tahmooressi’s proceedings and release. Tahmooressi, a Marine Sergeant who served combat tours in Afghanistan, is being held on weapons charges in a prison near Tijuana after mistakenly driving into Mexico with three legally-owned firearms.
“Mexico has its own laws and processes, and we have a responsibility as neighbors to acknowledge and respect each other’s systems,” said Rep. Hunter. “But Andrew’s actions were not deliberate: it was not his intention to enter Mexico. He simply got lost at the border on his way to meet a friend. Andrew is not a weapons trafficker and he’s not a criminal. He is a U.S. Marine who had in his possession three legallyowned firearms. If Mexico argues that makes Andrew a criminal, worthy of imprisonment, then a reality check is in order. The facts have been presented and now it’s on Mexico to do the right thing. Mexican authorities have set a hearing for the end of the

Letters to the Editor
‘Separation between church and state’ is CLEARLY NOT codified in ANY law, it is merely a legal ‘idea,’ strained from a letter Thomas Jefferson wrote to the Danbury Baptist Association where he writes, “I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should ‘make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof’, thus building a wall of separation between Church and State.” Many of the arguments at that time were against the country declaring a national religion; it was never their intent to scrub religious expression from public life as it is now. The conflict comes from the fact that these are two absolutes with no possible middle ground. To believe in one means you cannot believe in the other. IF, as atheists

decision. Even so, it’s no wonder that Chief Executive Magazine has rated California for nine years in a row as the worst state in the nation to own and operate a business. All government programs depend upon tax revenues generated by the private-sector. More employers setting up shop in California would mean more people working, more people making purchases and more tax revenue generated. It’s no surprise that high taxes and stringent regulations are resulting in businesses leaving California. Nor should we be surprised by the side-effects of high unemployment and surging budget deficits. No economy can tax and regulate itself into prosperity. The Legislature must make California competitive again by reducing costs and regulations that are pushing employers and jobs away from our once “Golden State.”

Teens and youth members from the Boys & Girls Club of San Marcos competed for the local Youth of the Year title recently. Being selected as the Youth of the Year is the highest honor a B&G Club youth member can receive. The title recognizes outstanding contributions to a member’s family, school, community and B&G Club, as well as personal challenges and obstacles overcome. Finalists sat before a panel of respected judges from the community. Mayor Jim Desmond and Chairwoman of the Board Debbie Thompson presented the winning youth and teen member with their awards, including a $500 scholarship for the Teen Youth of the Year, generously donated by Mark and Maureen Loscher. Teen Youth of the Year finalists each received $100 scholarship, generously donated by Eckert’s Moving and Storage.

Public Transportation Often a Time-waster
I am a believer in the concept of mass transit, to a point. Where mass transit and I part company, however, is in its current execution.
Before you say that I can’t use San Diego County as a benchmark--which I freely admit would be stacking the odds against public transit--I am writing this after a very recent experience in a city most would say sets the high water mark for public mass transportation, San Francisco. This recent experience, one far different from cable car jaunts in Union Square, puts the flaws of these systems into sharp focus.
The 2014 Junior Youth of the Year is Cesar Hernandez, from Alvin Dunn Elementary, and the 2014 Teen Youth of the Year is Yizack Arellanes, from The Club Teen Center.
Finalists for Junior Youth of the Year were: Tyler Billing, San Elijo Middle School; Ariel Aviles, San Marcos Elementary School; Natalie Delgado, Jennifer Loscher Branch; Ashley Sanchez, San Marcos Middle School; Rosie Hernandez, Woodland Park Middle School; and Elizabeth Chaparro, Copper Creek.
Teen Youth of the Year finalists were: Britanny Palma, Jasmine Pattynama, Ruth Lobatos, and Anthony Jones, all from The Club Teen Center. Other awards given were: School Partnership Award, Kris Martinson; Youth Volunteer of the Year Award, Kenneth White; Member of the Year Award, Erika Nova; and SDG&E Award, Angelene Rieta.

I will first say that the bus system in the city seems very good in terms of routing, as well as the number and location of stops. Those frequent stops, however, make it imperative riders use alternate means via fixed rail trolleys or the region’s subway system (BART) to travel more than a few blocks in a timely manner. There are also gaps in service that necessitate long walks at times to get where you really want to go. I have no objection to the walks in and of themselves--we all can use more exercise. What I have a problem with is the consumption of time, something that once lost you can’t get back. You often hear the argument that the use of public transportation saves time wasted by sitting in traffic. If you are fortunate enough to live and work directly on a transit corridor, this may well be true. If you do not, though, you may well waste far more time waiting and subsequently travelling roundabout routes to your destination via a system that lacks flexibility.

corporate lobbyist. He communicates with his constituents, never forgetting that it is them, not he, who are in charge of North County.
"District 5 really deserves someone that listens to the people,'' said Wood, Oceanside's popular and longtime mayor. "And not just the developers.'' Wood is eager to uproot a career politician with agendas that seldom revolve around his constituents. Spend time with Wood and it's clear why his approval rating is the envy of others: he lends an ear to all parties, not just those supplying checks to steer decisions in their direction. Oceanside's voters know a good thing in Wood. He earned his stripes as an Oceanside police detective for 31 years, then served on the Oceanside City Council. When a leadership void appeared in the mayor's office, Wood was the right person for the job. People respect someone not claiming to have all the answers. Wood isn't shy to explain his position, but he considers other points of view.

Maybe he could be the future father of my children!'
And as he shows her around his apartment she notices that one wall of his bedroom is completely filled with soft, sweet, cuddly teddy bears.
He responds warmly.
They get back to his place,
There are three shelves in the bedroom, with hundreds and hundreds of cute, cuddly teddy bears carefully placed in rows, covering the entire wall!
It was obvious that he had taken quite some time to lovingly arrange them and she was immediately touched by the amount of thought he had put into organizing the display. There were small bears all along the bottom shelf, medium-sized bears covering the length of the middle shelf, and huge, enormous bears running all the way along the top shelf. She found it strange for an obviously masculine guy to have such a large collection of Teddy Bears.
She is quite impressed by his sensitive side but doesn't mention this to him.
They share a bottle of wine and continue talking and, after awhile, she finds herself thinking, 'Oh my God! Maybe, this guy could be the one!
She turns to him and kisses him lightly on the lips They continue to kiss, the passion builds, and he romantically lifts her in his arms and carries her into his bedroom where they rip off each others clothes and make hot, steamy love. She is so overwhelmed that she responds with more passion, more creativity, more heat than she has ever known.
After an intense, explosive night of raw passion with this sensitive guy, they are lying there together in the afterglow. The woman rolls over, gently strokes his chest and asks coyly, 'Well, how was it?' The guy gently smiles at her, strokes her cheek, looks deeply into her eyes, and says: 'Help yourself to any prize from the middle shelf.' The Black Bra (as told by a woman)

This year’s budget is a chance for the Mayor to make good on a 2011 promise
The briefing on the Operating Budget (also called the General Fund Budget) for the fiscal year 2014/15 was given to the City Council at last Wednesday’s meeting. (April 23, 2014). (On May 28, the Finance Department will come back with a Preliminary Budget and on June 11 they will come back with the Final Budget to be voted on by the Council. (There is no suspense here, the budget is always approved.) So in preparation for later budget discussions, I thought I’d clarify a couple terms. The General Fund holds the revenue the City receives through taxes, fines, permits, investments and the like. This is the money used to operate the City by paying salaries, utilities etc. (There is a separate budget for the Capital Improvement Program — mainly the building and maintenance of roads, parks etc. There are also Enterprise funds for water and

sewer but those are not part of this budget discussion.) General Fund Reserves is money set aside as a sort of “rainy day” fund, though it can also be used for economic development or anything else the Council approves by a majority vote. In any budget discussion with this Council, you will hear it said repeatedly that it needs to be a “balanced budget.” Since a balanced budget is required by State law — and therefore Escondido has always had a balanced budget — what they are really saying is a balanced budget “without use of reserves.” OF course, none of the numbers used are absolutely accurate but they are based upon projections and will be updated throughout the year.
But let’s go back to January 26, 2011, when Mayor-elect Abed convened the City Council meeting where the first budget he would oversee was on the agenda. (You can watch it here on the City website now that 5 years of meetings are available!) Mayor Abed made it clear that, no matter what, the budget would be balanced without using any Reserves, even though revenues were increasing and the Finance Director assured the Council that the numbers going forward looked good. (That means they could have begun the year with a budget that used Kiwi airmen line up at Piva to get a good look at the Kara Zero just moments after it landed. As seen previously, three other Zeros had landed at Jacquinot Bay and were handed over to the RNZAF. Of
these, two were given to the Royal Australian Air Force and the other was flown about as a joyride aircraft by curious pilots.
Reserves but as revenues increased they would have been able to cut back on the amount of Reserves actually used. But the Mayor would have none of that.) And so on June 8, 2011, Mayor Abed and Council members Gallo, Waldron and Morasco voted YES and Councilwoman Diaz voted NO to the budget of $72.5 million which was balanced without using Reserves by making many, many cuts — including the permanent closing of the East Valley Branch Library, the transfer of Cox franchise fee from Recreation to the General Fund and the elimination of funding to Education COMPACT, the Escondido Arts Partnership and the Escondido History Center. At that January meeting, the Mayor assured people that … if we balance the budget in a few months then any additional revenues…if and when we get those revenues we will start restoring the services that we are cutting today. And over the years, many of the programs, services and personnel that were cut have been restored, but there are three that have become permanent. I think it is time for the Mayor to make good on his promise back in 2011 and restore what he can. Here’s how. Mark the Cox franchise fee as

then ride the bus line back. The drive over took less than ten minutes. It took over an hour to return from whence I came. This experience was virtually a carbon copy of my trip via the Sprinter to get from Escondido to San Marcos when I picked up my personal car after leaving it at the business where I rented the truck. Another hour-plus trip that could have been made in less than twenty minutes by car.
This, my friends, is time I will not get back.
Riding in cramped, hot busses, and being jostled by people carrying a week’s groceries in bags while making my way anywhere is not my idea of a carefree mode of travel. Images of busy executives conducting business while blissfully riding while someone else does the driving are largely a pipe dream. For the record, I didn’t see anyone on a bus who looked like an executive, nor could they have conducted any business while riding had there been, given the crowded conditions. When it’s convenient, public
an ongoing funding source for Community Services, to repair the damage done by the 2011/12 budget cuts. First, provide Sunday hours at the Main Library to make up, in some small way, for the erasure of the East Valley Branch Library. Second, restore funding to Education COMPACT, the Escondido Arts Partnership and the Escondido History Center. Third, allow the Recreation Department to provide more subsidies to lowincome families for activities and programs for children that now have higher fees. In one month, at the City Council meeting on May 28, we will get our first look at the actual proposed budget for 2014/15. At this point, it appears the surplus revenue– estimated at $5.5 million — has already been earmarked for personnel and City building maintenance. Those are fine budget items. But I think it is time for the City to repair as best they can the damage done to Community Services by the budget cuts of 2011. To ignore them is to say every other part of City services is more important than the Library and Recreation.

Another Gallery exhibition “A Look Back . . .”, an exhibition of photographs presents an historic view of the people and everyday life in Viet Nam in 1969, taken by then First Lt. Jeffrey W. McClain. These are not images of a war-torn nation; these are pictures that most people didn’t know or read about during this defining moment in history. It’s the story of people going about living their daily lives, raising families, going to markets, tending their homes during trying times. McClain is dedicating his exhibition to the people of Viet Nam—to the “mothers and fathers and children who lived there in 1969.” This exhibition runs through May 31st in Gallery 262, located inside the Escondido Municipal Gallery. The Reception coincides with the others on Saturday, May 10, from 5:30-8pm. Contact the Gallery owner/director by phone at 760.703.2464 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Cosmetic - Ceramic (Non-Metallic) Crowns - Keys to a Beautiful Smile
Ceramic, Non-Metallic Crowns are the current rave for Cosmetic Smile Enhancements. Everyone wants teeth that, once restored, “Brighten Your Smile” and give you that overall “Glow” your face has begun to miss as we age and begin to wrinkle and tarnish a bit. Some of the old metal crowns caused allergic reactions and current research indicates they may be contributing to cancer formation. Metal crowns had been replaced in the mid1960’s by porcelain jacket crowns. But by
the mid-1980’s these crowns showed a 25% chance of failing after 11 years, with failure rates on posterior (back) teeth going much higher! Fortunately, in 1983 Horn, Simonsen and others introduced the first bonded porcelain crowns. However, although these crowns didn’t fracture as often, they frequently came loose from their underlying teeth because their dental cements didn’t adhere well to dentin. Today, along with the development of newer cements, the modern day all-ceramic crowns have arrived. These new systems not only stay bonded to teeth well, they can also be categorized into two groups: those that are translucent and very natural in appearance and those that are more opaque having a higherstrength core that resist extreme chewing forces. Both are fabricated without a metal backing and therefore do not show their metal (called “shine
through”) up by the gum line as their owner’s gums recede with age.
There are several companies producing various formulations of these ceramics and supplying them to the dental labs for crowns and bridges. Just to keep it simple, the opaque, stronger crowns are made from a Zirconia core and used in posterior (back) teeth because they can withstand the stronger forces exerted in that region. The translucent, more color adjustable crowns, are made from a pressured ceramic and are thus mostly used for anterior (front) teeth. For those who have very strong bites and/or grind at night we now have a third option which allows us to “layer” porcelain
onto the Zirconia based crowns resulting in stronger anterior (front) teeth that won’t chip with their nighttime bruxism (grinding)!
In general, the dentist will pick the appropriate cosmetic crown for you based on several factors including how much support is needed, whether the teeth are discolored, how much of the tooth is remaining, whether it will show when you’re speaking, eating, smiling, etc., as well as how much clearance you have with the opposing teeth, where your gum line is located, and finally, the color of your teeth. If you have an “unusual” color disposition, then the translucent crown may be the best choice!

Computers, Culture and Internet Crime-Part III
For the past three weeks we’ve been talking about the rapid growth of technology since WWII and how it has changed not only our lives, but also our culture, and the way we think and make decisions. We are immersed in information through electronic sources day and night. We’ve learned from experience that much of the information available to us is not factual. Advertisements and statements by politicians are agenda driven. Even news reports are often tainted with spin that reflects the broad social views of the management. In this ocean of misinformation, most of us simply choose what we want to believe and ignore conflicting information. If you’re an Obamaphile you

Since we don’t trust our own ability to figure things out, we tend to rely on “trusted sources” for our information and opinions. That works pretty well locally. We may come to trust our hometown doctor, auto mechanic, and dentist, banker, grocer, policeman and even local politicians simply because we know them. On the Internet it’s a completely different story. We really don’t know anyone. We tend to trust companies with well known names like Microsoft, Apple, Adobe, Google, Yahoo, Amazon, Ebay etc. We also trust our banks, credit card companies and our friends. Cyber criminals exploit these trusted sources to their own nefarious ends. Phishing, pharming and scareware are terms for some exploits that rely on users trust of seemingly familiar sources.

It can be a phone call from “Windows” telling you that “Microsoft” has detected errors and needs access to your PC so they can fix the “problems.” Hope springs eternal in the human heart, so when your PC is acting up or running slow and some one or some thing to diagnose and fix it, you just may fall for it. The Internet, TV and radio are flush with ads promising to

Growing up in Indiana we used to hee-haw at the suckers who got taken by the Gypsy barn painters who offered to paint houses, barns and outhouses for a fraction of the going rate. The Gypsies worked fast and always got out of the county just before the first rain washed away their paint. It looks to us like they’ve graduated to remote PC repair.

"I'm not a developer-hater,'' said Wood, and that's proven by the maturing of Oceanside, North County's largest city. "But there is such a thing as building and there is such a thing as sprawl.
Wood was instrumental in the Highway 78 Corridor general plan, a blueprint by the mayors of the cities which hug that artery running from Escondido to Oceanside. After years of debate to get it right, only one person said it was wrong: Horn.
"He came up with his plan but none of the mayors approved it,'' Wood said because it was clear developers were pulling the strings, with Horn as their

Melrose Drive between the Courthouse and Breeze Hill Road (West Side) ese markings are used primarily where a travel lane is too narrow for side-by-side sharing and for motorists to safely drive next to bicyclists within the same lane. Sharrows serve to alert motorists that bicyclists may be using the full travel lane. To pass a bicyclist who is using the full lane or a lane with sharrows, a motorist should wait for a safe opportunity to move entirely into an adjacent lane. puppet.
"Developers don't like general plans,'' Wood said. "They want to make sure their paid representatives, like Horn, will let them build anywhere.'' What's obvious is District 5 voters have a clear choice: Wood, who represents the citizens, and Horn, the bully politician special interests love to manipulate. "The standard complaint I get from people,'' Wood said, "is the lack of communication they have with Horn.''
Reaching Wood is never a problem. Now's the time for Wood to expand his reach from beyond a grateful Oceanside to the entire District 5. The Paper urges your vote for Jim Wood.

San Marcos – A new report has been released which reveals 7 costly mistakes that most homeowners make when selling their home, and a 9 Step System that can help you sell your home fast and for the most amount of money.
This industry report shows clearly how the traditional ways of selling homes have become less and less effective in today’s market. The fact of the matter is three quarters of home sellers don’t get what they want for their home and become disillusioned and even worse: financially disadvantaged when they put their home on the market.
As this report indicates, most home sellers make 7 deadly mistakes that cost them literally thousands of dollars. The good news is that each and every one of these 7 mistakes is entirely preventable. In answer to this issue, industry insiders have prepared a free special report entitled“The 9 Step System to Get Your Home Sold Fast and For Top Dollar”.

Annie is a 2-3 year old sweet little spayed 50 pound German Shepherd currently staying a San Marcos Kennels.
She was rescued from Downey Animal Shelter by the Puppy Coalition Foundation as she had lived out her allowable kenneling time there and was about to be killed for the space. She is full of kisses and loves to cuddle and nuzzle into your arms. She gets along well with other dogs and people and is a "love bug". Just craves affection because we think she didn't get it before so she is making up for lost time. She would fit with about any situation. We're a not sure about her and cats but she is easy going enough to make us think she would be fine. If you are interested in Annie, call Bruce at 760-612-9156.

The Pastor Says . . .
ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy!” So many churches skew what they do to appeal to the feminine side of the family. Especially on Mother’s Day.
Here's how it all went.
My engaged friend: “The other night when my boyfriend came over he found me with a black leather bodice, tall stilettos and a mask. He saw me and said, 'You are the woman of my dreams...I love you.' Then we made passionate love all night long.”
The mistress: “Me too! The other night I met my lover at his office and I was wearing a raincoat, under it only the black bra, heels and mask over my eyes. When I opened the raincoat he didn't say a word, but he started to tremble and we had wild sex all night.”
Then I had to share my story: “When my husband came home I was wearing the black bra, black stockings, stilettos and a mask over my eyes. When he came in the door and saw me he said, "What's for dinner, Zorro?"
Trixie is the ultimate lap cat and enjoys human companionship so much that she will plant herself on your lap and just stay there. She shares her happiness with you by purring up a storm and looking at you with "I love you" eyes.
Pastor Hal Seed, New Song Community Church, Oceanside Mother’s Day and Church
Going to church on Mother’s Day is like barbecuing on Father’s Day. It’s what Americans do. Next to Christmas and Easter, Mother’s Day is the highest church-attendance day on the calendar. Here’s what’s funny about it.
Most weeks, churches tend to cater to women. After all, they’re usually the one who picks the church and encourages weekly attendance. We all know the saying, “If mama
Here’s what happens: Dads who don’t normally go to church (because it’s too feminine) show up on Mother’s Day, and sure enough, it IS too feminine. So they decide not to come back again until Christmas.
What if we flipped it? What if church was all about men on Mother’s Day? What churchgoing women really want is for their husbands to accompany them to church every week. Why not give them what they want by doing a Mother’s Day sermon that will appeal to men, so the men will come back next week? That’s what I’ll be doing this Mother’s Day. Men, you’re invited. I’m tempted to hold a barbecue and car show afterwards, but that might step over the line into “Mama ain’t happy” land. Guys, see you this Sunday?

Sylvia Clark is an 87-year-old widow who happens to own some real estate that at one time was an avocado grove. Her late husband, Kyle Clark, managed the grove and for years paid his water bill on time and in full. Never once late.
Kyle Clark died. His widow was now faced with the responsibility of keeping up the property and paying the bills, including the water bills. Which she did. In full. On time. Now comes the city of Escondido who have decided to sue widow Clark because they say one of their agents incorectly computed a formula
converting cubic feet to kgal (thousands of gallons) and missed by one decimal point. Thus the city billed the Clarks for water that was, by a factor of 10, less than what they should have been billed. The error was discovered 14 years later. And now the city wants their money. The property earned a whole $18,000 a year from the grove. Most of the grove has now been chainsawed down and stumped.
Christopher McKinney, the city’s director of utilities says Mrs. Clark owes the money. City Attorney Jeff Epp seems to agree . . . so, he filed suit. Ms. Clark has turned the 256acre ranch over over to her sons. One, Lorin Clark, an attorney suggests the city needs to rethink its position. Further developments may materialize. Oceanside Pedestrian Hit, Killed
An SUV struck and killed a pedestrian in a crosswalk on state Route 76 last Saturday evening, according to Oceanside police.
Reports indicate the pedestrian was struck about 10.25 p.m. as he was crossing at Benet Road. Emergency crews performed CPR, but the struck pedestrian died. The victim's name was not released.
Alcohol was not believed to be a factor in the crash, according to police. Oceanside Stabbing Leaves Victim in Critical Condition
A 20-year old man named Joseph Flores was taken into custody following a stabbing in Oceanside Monday.
A verbal argument had begun and quickly became physical. Police responded about 4:55 p.m. to a condominium complex on Spyglass Way, near Lake Boulevard. A female witness directed police to an open area near a pool, where officers found a wounded man on the ground and a man sitting next to him. A witness reported the victim had been stabbed by the other man. Officers detained the suspect and gave medical aid to the 21-year-old victim, who had lacerations to the stomach and stab wounds to the chest and arm area, the lieutenant said. The victim was evacuated by medical helicopter to a San Diego hospital. According to police the incident was not gang related.

NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that on May 27, 2014, a public hearing will be held with respect to the City of San Marcos adoption of the TransNet Local Street Improvements Program of Projects for fiscal years 2015 through 2019. The voters of San Diego County approved the TransNet Ordinance and Expenditure Plan on November 4, 2004 and provides that the San Diego Association of Governments (SANDAG), acting as the San Diego County Regional Transportation Commission (“Commission”), shall approve a multi-year program of projects submitted by local agencies identifying those transportation projects eligible to use transportation sales tax (TransNet) funds as an element of the Regional Transportation Improvement Program (RTIP), which is required by law to be developed and adopted by SANDAG every two years. The TransNet revenues are apportioned to each local agency based upon the following formula: (i) each agency receives $50,000 annual funding base; (ii) remaining revenues are distributed on a formula of the agency’s population and miles maintained. SANDAG has provided a forecast estimate of annual TransNet revenues per local agency for fiscal years 2015 through 2019, which subsequently has been programmed in the RTIP update. All projects to be considered for TransNet funds AND any transportation projects that are regionally significant capacity increasing, regardless of funding sources, are required to be included within the 2014 RTIP. The 2014 RTIP is scheduled for adoption by the SANDAG Board of Directors on September 26, 2014. The City of San Marcos is submitting nineteen (19) transportation-related projects for inclusion within the 2014 RTIP and they are: Via Vera Cruz Bridge and Street Improvements; Bent Avenue Bridge; Discovery Street Improvements; San Marcos Boulevard Complete Street; Richland Elementary School Improvements; Borden Road Widening and Improvements; Street Maintenance Operations; Citywide Traffic Signals; Armorlite Complete Street; San Marcos Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan; Palomar Station Bridge; Creekside Drive; San Marcos Creek Bridge at State Route 78; Street Improvements and Widening on Barham Drive; Street Improvements: Discovery Street; Borden Road Street Improvements and Bridge Construction; Woodland Parkway Interchange Improvements; South Santa Fe from Bosstick to Smilax; Grand Avenue Bridge and Street Improvements.
