We’ve heard a great deal about the Apache, the Comanche, the Sioux, the Nez Perce . . . but most of us have not heard much about an Indian Nation that is fairly close to us, geographicaly, if not historically. The Navajo Nation has a rich, sometimes colorful, history . . . filled with adventure, excitement, pain and suffering, and tragedy. But many of their tales are not often told. We propose to change that a bit.

A bit of background: The name “Navajo” comes from the late 18th century via the Spanish (Apaches de) Navajó "(Apaches of) Navajó", which means, roughly, "fields adjoining a ravine". The Navajo call themselves Diné.

She walks in the desert daily, guided by the warmth of the sun on her face, giving her the sense of direction - near route 160, “The Navajo Trail,” Arizona Lower Left: A beautiful turquoise bracelet. An example of the fine silversmith craftsmanship by the Navajo.

The Navajo were semi-nomadic from the 16th through the 20th centuries. Their extended kinship groups had seasonal dwelling areas to accommodate livestock, agriculture and gathering practices. As part of their traditional economy, Navajo groups may have formed trading or raiding parties, traveling relatively long distances.

Background below: Monument Valley, AZ, where the Navajo regularly traveled.

Upper background: An example of one many designs that the Navajo used in their blankets and wall hangings.

While a very peaceful people today, the Navajo Nation at one time did a lot of raiding of other tribes, stealing horses, cattle, etc. The other tribes returned the favor, in kind. They were never considered terribly warlike but they were known as quite competent and brave warrior when the cause demanded. The Navajo provided our ‘codetalkers’ during WWII, passing messages in the Navajo language so enemy forces could not understand nor break the code. They acquitted themselves quite honorably.

During the battle that preceded “The Long Walk,” the Navajo put up an effective fight until a scorched earth policy, denying them of food, water and shelter, and the onset of winter, caused them to surrender. More about that another day, when we tell that painful story. Till then, it’s important you know a bit more about the Navajo. To under The Paper - 760.747.7119

people must date and marry partners outside their own clans, which for this purpose include the clans of their four grandparents.

Most of us who have any familiarity at all with the Navajo have an awareness of turquoise jewelry, Navajo blankets and rugs, and the hogan. The Hogan

A hogan, the traditional Navajo home, is either built as a shelter for a man or for a woman. Male hogans are square or conical with a distinct rectangular entrance, while a female hogan is an eight-sided house. Both are made of wood and covered in mud, with the door always facing east to welcome the sun each morning. The Navajo construct hogans out of poles and brush covered with earth. Navajos have several types of hogans for lodging and ceremonial use. Most Navajo members today live in apartments and houses in urban areas but there are still a number of traditionalists within the Nation that still prefer the hogan. As some of today’s Navajo

Weaving

It went on to urge the president to acknowledge the wrongs. Such acnowledgement has not been forthcoming. Jewelry

Silversmithing is an important art form among Navajo. Atsidi Sani (c. 1830–c. 1918) is considered to be the first Navajo silversmith. He learned silversmithing from a Mexican man called Nakai Tsosi ("Thin Mexican") around 1878 and began teaching other Navajos how to work with silver. By 1880, Navajo silversmiths were creating handmade jewelry including bracelets, tobacco flasks, and necklaces. Later, they added silver earrings, buckles, bolos, hair ornaments, pins and squash blossom necklaces for tribal use, and to sell to tourists as a way to supplement their income.

The Navajo's hallmark jewelry piece called the "squash blossom" necklace first appeared in the 1880s. The term "squash blossom" was apparently attached to the name of the Navajo necklace at an early date, although its bud-shaped beads are thought to derive from Spanish-Mexican pomegranate designs. The Navajo silversmiths also borrowed the "naja" (najahe in Navajo] symbol to shape the silver pendant that hangs from the "squash blossom" necklace.

Navajo came to the southwest with their own weaving traditions; however, they learned to weave cotton on upright looms from Pueblo peoples. The first Spaniards to visit the region wrote about seeing Navajo blankets. By the 18th century the Navajo had begun to import Bayeta red yarn to supplement local black, grey, and white wool, as well as wool dyed with indigo. Using an upright loom, the Navajo made extremely fine utilitarian blankets that were collected by Ute and Plains Indians. These Chief's Blankets, so called because only chiefs or very wealthy individuals could afford them, were characterized by horizontal stripes and minimal patterning in red. First Phase Chief's Blankets have only horizontal stripes, Second Phase feature red rectangular designs, and Third Phase feature red diamonds and partial diamond patterns. The completion of the railroads dramatically changed Navajo weaving. Cheap blankets were imported, so Navajo weavers shifted their focus to weaving rugs for an increasingly non-

On the evening of Tuesday, May 27th, an employee of the L.A. Fitness Center, located at 362 West El Norte Parkway, called 9-1-1 to report she had been sexually assaulted by a person inside the business. According to the victim she was attacked by the suspect who had apparently hidden inside the facility until after closing. The suspect jumped out, taking the victim by surprise. The suspect punched the victim, knocked her to the ground and began to pull at her clothing. The victim fought back and broke free. The suspect then fled the building. Escondido Police Officers responded and arrived on scene in approximately four minutes. A search of the area by numerous officers and the Sheriff’s ASTREA helicopter were unsuccessful in locating the suspect.

The victim described the suspect as a Hispanic male approximately 35-45 years of age. He was about 5’5” tall, heavy, with a shaved head and a teardrop tattoo under his left eye. The victim said the suspect also had a tattoo of a cross on his left ring finger. The suspect was wearing a white tank top, black shorts, black high top tennis shoes and white

Hi Lyle,

Letters to the Editor Another Kudo for the Brigantine

As much as we appreciated your recent commentary on the newly remodeled Brigantine restaurant we decided to check it out for ourselves. In our opinion the new interior is great, very open, light, inviting and comfortable. It is a bit noisy but we were there early this evening, Memorial Day, and while acceptable we can certainly imagine what it must be like later and on weekends. On the other hand, the food was excellent! My filet mignon was perfect and Bobbie's sea bass would be hard to beat anywhere. We finished off sharing a creme broulet’ and the Brigantine complimented us with a nice bottle of their house Chardonney as an anniversary present.

Corodata, the specialists in document shredding, donated their services as a community service, as did Dallas Woodring and The Paper. It all combined to offer paper shredding at just $5 a box last Saturday. It’s an ideal way to both get rid of obsolete, outdated paperwork and to protect against identity theft.

Dallas Woodring, The Paper and Cordodata are all looking forward to doing it again in the near future.

A group of neighbors in Krider’s San Marcos neighborhood kicked in $20 per ticket and the House Concert was set up at the home of Greg and Cathy Phillips. About 100 were in the audience, in the back yard, with a stage, lights, great sound system, and comfortable chairs. It was showtime and a dynamic singer, Eve Selis, came out and knocked the audience out. This in spite of having had a roller blading accident earlier in the week that required her to come on stage with her right leg in a solid brace and her being under the influence of strong pain-killing drugs. She never missed a note or a lyric, she laughed a lot, had fun with the audience, and the audi-

ence, appreciating what a trouper she was, appearing when she probably should have been home in bed, embraced her warmly.

I had never heard of a backyard concert before; nor had Evelyn. This was a first time event but we enjoyed it so much we not only will attend another, we just might try to set one or two up in North County ourselves, with a variety of artists.

It’s a neighborhood thing where several groups of neighbors have a pre-show reception at their home, on a potluck basis, then come to the home of the host for the backyard concert, perhaps have a drink or two there, and then take their seats. It’s a two hour show, starts at 8pm sharp, you’re out the door at 10pm. And you will have been royally entertained.

Just a great way for neighbors to meet neighbors and their friends, and to enjoy great music without having to fight the normal concert crowds. If you think you’d be interested in staging one of these events, contact the organizers at frogstop.org. Or call me and I’ll put you in touch.

John Smylie, Attorney at Law

Many of us have acquaintances or relatives who have disabled children or disabled adults who receive or may be entitled to government support programs. To qualify for many of these programs the client must show financial need with limited income. The Special Needs Trust becomes an important tool in improving quality of life for those persons. Those programs include supplemental social security (SSI), disability, and Medi-Cal among others. The financial qualification for Medi-Cal is particularly stringent. A direct gift from a will, trust, or by intestate succession is an outright gift. If a gift is left

We have terrible people like serial killers amongst us and it’s important that we all recognize that and how heinous their actions are - and we should be on the alert for them.

conducted a DUI Sobriety / Driver’s License Checkpoint in the area of Centre City Pkwy and Decatur.

Under a new state law, drivers whose ONLY offense was being UNLICENSED to drive were given the opportunity to locate the registered owner of the vehicle to either take or assign possession of the vehicle to a licensed driver. Five vehicles were released to the owner or a designated driver. During the checkpoint, eight vehicles were impounded. Following are other results from this event: ¬ 1448 vehicles drove through the checkpoint. ¬ 672 vehicles were screened in primary. ¬ 5 Field Sobriety Tests were conducted, resulting in 4 DUI arrests ¬ 42 vehicles were sent to secondary screening (drivers who could not produce a driver’s license or who were suspected

without special needs restrictions, the patient becomes disqualified until the gift is spent. The gift provides no benefit for the disabled person, The California legislature and Congress recognized this problem. The Probate Code establishes the rules for a Special Needs Trust which can provide financial support without disqualifying the person from public agency support.

If the Special Needs Trust is privately funded and prepared before the distribution is made, the trust does not require court approval. A gift from a family trust (parent to child) to a Special Needs Trust is privately funded. The privately funded Special Needs Trust does not require a payback provision. The remaining assets may be distributed to other beneficiaries on the death of the primary beneficiary. If the support for the beneficiary is direct government support, an insurance policy or a personal injury settlement, the Special Needs Trust must be approved by the court. Court approval is a relatively straightforward procedure for an attorney experienced in these trusts. Court approved Special Needs Trusts require a payback provision on the death of the beneficiary. For instance, money

(two for suspended license and 10 for unlicensed driver, one for no insurance.) ¬ Educational material was distributed regarding DUI problems. Funding for this operation is provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Juvenile Tagging Suspect Nailed by Oceanside Police

It took Oceanside police a year to complete their investigation into a graffiti vandalism case but, ultimately, they located a juvenile suspect who lived on Barry Street in Oceanside. Upon arrival officers found items related to tagging in his bedroom. The juvenile later confessed to a series of incidents that had caused about $18,000 in damages. He was taken into custody.

The Special Needs Trust permits the Trustee to use the trust estate to provide financial support not included in the public agency support. This additional support includes special therapy or counseling. Additional counseling or therapy can add much to the quality of life. Other expenditures which can add to the disabled persons comfort include social activities, entertainment, vacation expenses and upgraded living quarters. The trustee can provide transportation expenses including a better vehicle. We all know transportation is particularly important for persons in Southern California. The special needs

Some early EuropeanAmerican settlers moved in and set up trading posts, often buying Navajo rugs by the pound and selling them back east by the bale. The traders encouraged the locals to weave blankets and rugs into distinct styles. These included "Two Gray Hills" (predominantly black and white, with traditional patterns); Teec Nos Pos (colorful, with very extensive patterns); "Ganado" (founded by Don Lorenzo Hubbell), reddominated patterns with black and white; "Crystal" (founded by J. B. Moore); oriental and Persian styles (almost always with natural dyes); "Wide Ruins," "Chinlee," banded geometric patterns; "Klagetoh," diamond-type patterns; "Red Mesa" and bold diamond patterns. Many of these patterns exhibit a fourfold symmetry, which is thought to embody traditional ideas about harmony. Spirituality

trust is of extreme importance to improve the quality of life for the beneficiary.

Many parents may be supporting a disabled child during their lifetime. They may expect to provide a gift for future support when they die. Unless their estate plan provides for a Special Needs Trust, their gift may be quickly expended with their child left without governmental support. If you have a relative or know of a friend who may be in this status, have them or their caretaker contact an attorney to discuss whether a Special Needs Trust might be a part of the family’s estate plan.

Let’s Increase Transparency and Restore Trust

Last week, my Republican colleagues and I introduced “The Legislative Reform and Transparency Act of 2014” to establish policies to restore the public’s trust in their government. Californians should not be burdened with concerns about whether their representatives are acting unethically, especially when so many Californians have more important daily worries about job scarcity, quality education, or family budgeting.

I strongly believe the California Legislature can do better than the scandals that have enveloped the Capitol in the last year.

An Improving Budget Situation

On May 13 Governor Brown released his revised budget proposals, based on revenues received during the first quarter of 2014. The release of the “May Revise” has become an eagerly awaited yearly ritual in the Capitol, one that seldom fails to generate controversy.

This year, California’s financial picture is improving. Revenues are up approximately $2.4 billion, but unanticipated increases in Medi-Cal and other health costs related to the implementation of Obamacare will consume an additional $1.2 billion. The Governor wants to increase education spending by about $300 million, with much of the increase going toward unfunded liabilities in the State Teachers Retirement fund. A bi-partisan agreement has been reached to create a rainy day fund, subject to

voter approval, with longterm plans to begin paying down the $340 billion in unfunded mandates we have largely been ignoring. Obviously, with this huge amount of debt looming on the horizon, an improving revenue picture does not mean the Legislature can return to its old spending habits. Fortunately, the Governor has also recognized the “temporary” taxes included in Prop. 30, passed by voters in 2012, are really temporary. This year’s financial windfall, based on a shaky economic recovery and temporary taxes, simply will not last. It is never prudent to spend one-time money creating new programs that will ultimately put the state back into an even deeper financial hole. Hopefully, the Legislature has learned its lesson; we can’t tax, spend and borrow our way to financial solvency. That road leads to ruin.

Kirk’s Column by Kirk Effinger

Do Independent Voters Have a Voice?

I have undergone a number of changes in my life recently— seeing my son move off to San Francisco, moving my wife and myself into a new home in a new (albeit not unfamiliar) town—but one change I thought I would never make is how I registered my political party preference as a voter.

I have been voting since 1970. In all the years that have followed I have registered as a Republican, both because it was the political party that my parents had been a part of for as long as I can remember, and because I felt I could most closely identify with its philosophies, values, and pur-

pose. Not anymore.

I reached an epiphany of sorts when, after observing several contests at various levels in recent years, I came to understand that my chosen party not only does not speak for me on many issues anymore, it really doesn’t care what my (and many other’s) views are. Watching the party machinery abandon, if not eviscerate ostensible candidates within their own organization who do not adhere to virtually all of its political positions in lockstep, no matter how extreme, has been the catalyst that drove me to abandon it.

For reasons that can only be explained by assuming they have learned lessons about how to run a party and elect candidates by watching the Republican gains in the first decade of this new century, the Democratic Party has lately been emulating many of the same tactics. No clearer example of this exists than the fate of a politically attractive and popular candidate among the electorate, Nathan Fletcher, who, despite showing great strength in early polling— twice—was deemed unfit to run as the party standardbearer for San Diego mayor,

Middle School is no more. It is now known as the Del Dios Academy for Arts and Science. Starting in the fall semester sixth graders taking electives will be helped to decide which of two paths they will follow in the next two years at the school.

In addition to a normal wellrounded education, students may opt to follow one path to pursue science, technology, engineering and mathematics — commonly known as STEM — or visual and performing arts, known as VAPA. Some parents as well as faculty and administrators feel that the academy approach may raise the image of the school. Financial Toll for San Marcos and the Cocos Fire - $2 Million

The young petty officer ran into an officer, who told him to go to the bridge to aid the ship's Captain, Mervyn Bennion, who had been hit by shrapnel.

Miller was then ordered to load two Browning .50 caliber antiaircraft machine guns in the aft part of the battleship. He wasn't familiar with the machine gun, but two officers accompanying told him what to do. The Cook Who Was An Unlikely Hero

The under-fire actions of a lowranking Navy cook made the sailor one of the first Americans to be decorated for bravery during World War II. What adds interest to the actions of “Dorey” Miller, a third-class petty officer, was that he was the first AfricanAmerican to be so recognized. As a result, his heroism rallied the Black communities across America to support the war effort. Miller was the senior cook aboard the USS West Virginia. When the attack on Pearl Harbor began he immediately reported to his battle station, only to discover a torpedo had

Miller fired the gun until he ran out of ammunition, then he was ordered to help carry the Captain up to the navigation bridge out of the thick oily smoke generated by the many fires on and around the ship.

When the attack finally subsided, Miller was ordered to help move injured sailors through oil and water, thereby "unquestionably saving the lives of a number of people who might otherwise have been lost.” The West Virginia sank to the harbor bottom as her crew— including Miller—abandoned ship.

Beauty Way ceremony: the Kinaaldá, or a female puberty ceremony. Others include the Hogan Blessing Ceremony and the "Baby's First Laugh Ceremony." Otherwise, ceremonies are used to heal illnesses, strengthen weakness, and give vitality to the patient. Ceremonies restore beauty, harmony, balance, and health. Medical Care/Treatment

Most of us think of a Shaman, or Medicine Man, as an aged Indian who waves an eagle feather through some smoky incense, and utters incantations and, in a few hours, the patient is cured. That ain’t the way it works.

When suffering from illness or injury, Navajos traditionally seek a certified, credible Hatałii (medicine man) for healing, before turning to Western medicine (e.g., hospitals).

The medicine man will use several methods to diagnose the patient's ailments. This may include using special tools such as crystal rocks, and abilities such as hand-trembling and Hatał (chanting prayer). The medicine man chooses a specific healing chant for that type of

Escondido, CA—In a 2002 issue of Neurosurgical Focus, a peerreviewed article was published by a Dr. Michael D. Martin, MD et al. in which the third sentence states: “The disc itself is active tissue that contains significant mechanisms for self-repair.” That article was published by a neurosurgeon and written direct-ly for neurosurgeons.

“The Disc Itself Is Active Tissue...”

So what does that really mean to us? It tells us that the disc itself does have a God-given ability to heal and repair if provided the proper mechanisms for self-healing. There is a specific mechanism inherent in each of the spinal discs called the “pump mechanism of disc nutri-tion” (see Fig 1). When this mechanism is not working properly, the spinal discs will begin to die causing bulges, herniations, and eventually spinal stenosis.

The spinal disc is one of the very few tissues in the body that does not have a direct blood supply for circulation. The only way that the disc gets the circulation of water, oxygen and nutrients for self-repair is via this specific disc pump mechanism. What happens when you decrease cir-culation in any type of tissue, whether it be animal tissue, plant tissue or human tissue? Exactly, it begins to become weak and begins to degenerate.

Symptoms Are NOT The Problem

Now the symptoms of pain, numbness,

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

Let’s take a look at a plant for example...if the leaves on a plant begin to turn brown, would you say that the

life. This is important for Navajo warriors or soldiers returning from battle. Warriors or soldiers often suffer spiritual or psychological damage from participating in warfare, and the Enemy Way Ceremony helps restore harmony to the person, mentally and emotionally.

This is a prime example of a basic truth and need that our Native Americans have recognized and that our federal government should recognize and provide similar treatment for our returning military veterans, many of whom have seen things no individual should ever have to see . . . have done things no individual should be asked to do . . . and to remember things so one should have

extent of your disc damage for only $70. This examination will consist of a detailed neurological evaluation, extensive orthopedic testing, and a detailed analysis of the findings of your evaluation. He will sit down with you and go over your condition with you in complete detail. You will know exactly what is causing all your pain (or other symptoms).

In your spine, when the pump mechanism of disc nutrition fails, the disc will begin to de-generate and become weak. This weakness in the disc is what produces the bulging, herniated, and degenerative discs.

The treatment that is provided at Dr. Heilman’s Spine and Neuropathy Care Center in Escondido is revolutionary and is specifically designed to artificially re-create the pump mecha-nism in the discs which allows the spinal discs to heal and re-pair. The best part of the treat-ment is that it uses no drugs, no injections, and no surgery. Plus it’s painless and many patients relax and fall asleep while un-dergoing the treatment. The amount of treatment needed to allow the discs to heal and repair varies from person to person and can only be determined after a detailed neurological and orthopedic evaluation. We do NOT accept everyone for treatment and will let you know if we can accept your case for treatment.

to remember. The Navajo help to exorcise these mental demons from their returning warriors. We should do so as well.

The medicine men learn fiftyeight to sixty sacred ceremonies. Most of them last four days or more; to be most effective, they require that relatives and friends attend and help out. Outsiders are discouraged from participating, as they may become a burden to others or violate a taboo. This could affect the turnout of the ceremony. The ceremony must be done in precisely the correct manner to heal the patient. This includes everyone who is involved. The medicine man must be able to correctly perform a ceremony from beginning to end. If he does not, the ceremony will not work.

Escape from La Moree

The Cocos fire produced an unprecedented number of fire fighters and law enforcement in San Marcos. The overall performance of these dedicated public servants was outstanding. However in any operation of this size there were bound to be a few snafus. One such hiccup provided comic relief to Raunel Perez and his family. Raunel does onsite installations for The Computer Factory and his family owns Best Embroidery. On the morning of Thursday May 15th, after Raunel’s dad left for work, the family was informed that no one would be allowed back into the neighborhood.

The Perez home is on West La Moree opposite the entrance to CSUSM. Raunel’s mom called her husband at work to tell him he would need to spend the night at their other son’s home since the entrances to La Moree were blocked at Barham Drive. Since she, Raunel and the dog were trapped at home, she asked her husband to bring a pizza. Mr. Perez and his son picked up the pizza and phoned when they reached the intersection of Barham and La Moree. Raunel set out walking to the intersection to meet them. Then the fun began. With law enforcement from all over the county there were bound to be a couple of “Keystone” types in the mix and there were. Two “Barney Fifes” manned the Barham blockade that evening. Officer #1 patrolled the Barham side of the Sprinter overpass, Officer #2 stood guard on La Moree at the

arduous, and takes many years. The apprentice learns everything by watching his teacher, and memorizes the words to all the chants. If a medicine man cannot learn all sixty of the ceremonies, he may choose to specialize in a select few. Religion

Those who practice the Navajo religion regard the hogan as sacred. Navajos made their hogans in the traditional fashion until the 1900s, when they started to make them in hexagonal and octagonal shapes. Today they are rarely used as dwellings, but are maintained primarily for ceremonial purposes. The Navajo of the Southwestern United States are the largest federally recognized tribe of the United States of America with 300,048 enrolled tribal members.

The Navajo Nation constitutes an independent governmental body, which manages the

South side of the Sprinter overpass.

As Raunel approached the underpass he could see his dad and brother talking to the officer #1 on the other side. Officer #2 barked “Halt, If you proceed any further I won’t let you return”. By now they were all within a few yards of one another. Raunel’s dad asked the officer #1 if he could hand the pizza to Raunel. “Can’t let you do that” was the answer. Then Raunel asked if he could walk over and get the pizza. Officer#2 said, “yes, but I won’t let you come back.” Then Raunel’s brother asked officer #1 if he would mind handing the pizza to Raunel. “Do I look like a pizza delivery boy.” officer #1 sneered.

Raunel’s dad and brother left with the pizza and Raunel turned sadly to walk back home. Mindless bureaucracy had won the day; mom would have to cook that evening. Then Raunel noticed people walking into the neighborhood from the Sprinter platform located on top of the overpass. Apparently no one told the neighborhood guards about the Sprinter station. Raunel realized that they could move freely in and out of the neighborhood as long as they entered on the Sprinter. So Raunel drove his car out through the blockade and parked at the next Sprinter station. For the next three days the family and neighbors were able to move freely in and out of the forbidden zone on the Sprinter.

Navajo Indian reservation in the Four Corners area of the United States. The Navajo language is spoken throughout the region with most Navajo speaking English as well.

As of 2011, the states with the largest Navajo populations are Arizona (140,263), and New Mexico (108,306). Over threequarters of the Navajo population reside in these two states. The Navajo have been a peaceful, industrious people, for the most part.

Until contact with Pueblos and the Spanish, the Navajo were largely hunters and gatherers. The tribe adopted crop farming techniques from the Pueblo peoples, growing mainly corn, beans, and squash. When the Spanish arrived, the Navajo began herding sheep and goats as a main source of trade and food with meat becoming an essential component of the Navajo diet. Sheep also became a form of currency and status symbol among the Navajo based on the overall quantity of herds a family maintained. In addition, the practice of spinning and weaving wool into blankets and clothing became common and eventually developed into a form of highly valued artistic expression. To this day, Navajo blankets and tapestries are highly coveted.

Archaeological and historical evidence suggests the Athabaskan ancestors of the Navajo and Apache entered the Southwest around 1400 AD. The Navajo oral tradition is said to retain references of this migration. Oral history also indicates a long relationship with Pueblo people and a willingness to adapt Puebloan ideas and linguistic variance into their culture, as well as long-established trading practices between the groups. Spanish records from the mid-16th century speak of the Pueblos exchanging maize and woven cotton goods for bison meat, hides and stone from Athabaskans traveling to the Pueblos or living in the vicinity of them. In the 18th century, the Spanish reported the Navajo maintaining large herds of livestock and cultivating large crop areas.

The Spanish first used the term Apachu de Nabajo in the 1620s to refer to the people in the Chama Valley region east of the San Juan River and northwest of present-day Santa Fe, New Mexico. By the 1640s, the Spanish began using the term "Navajo" to refer to the tribes. During the last 1,000 years, Navajos have been in an on-

going process of territorial expansion, redefinition of tribal identity, and developing relationships with other indigenous groups based on trade and cultural exchange, likely resulting in endemic warfare, (raids) and commerce with the Pueblo, Apache, Ute, Comanche and Spanish peoples of the Southwest. The Navajo came into official contact with the United States of America in 1846, when General Stephen W. Kearny invaded Santa Fe, New Mexico, with 1,600 men during the Mexican American War. In 1846, following an invitation from a small party of American soldiers under the

command of Captain John Reid who journeyed deep into Navajo country and contacted him, Narbona and other Navajos negotiated a treaty of peace with Colonel Alexander Doniphan on November 21, 1846, at Bear Springs, Ojo del Oso (later the site of Fort Wingate).

The treaty was not honored by many young Navajo raiders who continued to steal livestock from New Mexican villages and herders. New Mexicans, on their part, together with Utes, continued to raid Navajo country stealing livestock and taking women and children for sale as slaves.

In 1849, the military governor of New Mexico, Colonel John Macrae Washington – accompanied by John S. Calhoun, an Indian agent – led a force of 400 soldiers into Navajo country, penetrating Canyon de Chelly, and signed a treaty with two Navajo leaders who presented themselves as "Head Chief" and "Second Chief." The treaty acknowledged the jurisdiction of the United States and allowed forts and trading posts to be built on Navajo land. The United States, on its part, promised "such donations [and] such other liberal and humane measures, as [it] may

While en route to this treaty signing, Narbona, a prominent Navajo peace leader, was killed resulting in hostility between the treaty parties. During the next ten years, the U.S. established forts on traditional Navajo territory. Military records cite this development as a precautionary measure to protect citizens and the Navajo from each other. However, Spanish/MexicanNavajo pattern of raids and expeditions continued. New Mexican citizen and militia raids increased rapidly in 1860–61 and became known as "the fearing time."

In 1861, Brigadier-General James H. Carleton, Commander of the Federal District of New Mexico, initiated a series of military actions against the Navajo. Colonel Kit Carson was ordered by Carleton to conduct an expedition into Navajo land and gain their surrender. Initially, only a few Navajo surrendered to Carson until he was joined by a large number of New Mexican militia volunteer citizens who aided in a scorched earth campaign against the Navajo. Carson and his forces swept through Navajo land, killing Navajos and destroying any

YTD numbers are out for PC OS (operating system) market share and Microsoft is not happy. In spite of Microsoft’s efforts to deny retail consumer’s access to Windows 7 for the past two years, last month Windows 7 gained market share at double the rate of Win 8/8.1. Win 7 now owns over 50% market share while Win 8/8.1 languishes with just 12 ½ %. Since the introduction of Win 8 most corporate buyers of new PCs have stipulated Windows 7 Pro. Small business and home users faced with finding only Win 8 on retail store shelves often turn to the Internet or local PC sources to purchase Win 7 PCs. Many simply stay with their Win XP systems. Users upgrading from Win XP and Vista have nearly unanimously chosen Win 7 over Win

To add insult to injury, Microsoft’s all out terror campaign to scare XP users into upgrading or buying new PCs failed badly. The market share of Win XP just prior to Microsoft’s well-publicized early April “end of support” was 26.5% percent. Today it stands at 25.3%. That is twice the market share of Win 8/8.1 and three times all of the Apple PCs in the world. The last 10% of the PC OS market is shared between Apple, Vista and Unix. Last week there was an interesting development. Microsoft’s “end of support” for XP meant that they would no longer make “bug fixes” and “vulnerability patches” on XP available as free upgrades for all users. They continue to develop “fixes” and “patches” as they discover problems just as they have for the past 14 years but these updates are only available for certain users, certainly not you.

Internet that allows XP users to enjoy the benefits of these regular updates just like the good old days. Here’s the way it works.

Microsoft is obliged to support certain XP OS products through April of 2019. One of these is an OS for embedded point of sales applications that is nearly identical to the home and business versions of XP. A simple registry tweak allows users to fool Microsoft into thinking that Win XP is actually a version of "Windows Embedded POSRready 2009" allowing XP users to receive updates from Microsoft all the way through April 9, 2019.

This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole, because the general speed and health of the whole group keeps improving by the regular killing of the weakest members. In much the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells. Excessive intake of alcohol, as we know, kills brain cells. But naturally, it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way, regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine.

••••• You don’t hear much about Tom Stinson. He’s the Senior Field Representative for Assemblywoman Marie Waldron, at her Escondido District Office. The guy is a whiz bang writer, churning out press release after press release, column after column, position paper after position paper, all of which are submitted to the Assemblywoman for approval, then out to the news media or involved agencies. The guy is a pro. I’ve told him several times he should run for office . . . he’s so good at what he does. But he prefers to work for legislators and remain behind the scenes. I hope Assemblywoman Waldron appreciates what a talent she has in him. We like working with professionals and Tom is all that and then some.

crops, livestock, or dwellings they came across. Facing starvation and death, the last group of Navajo surrendered at Canyon de Chelly and were taken to Fort Defiance for internment on July 20, 1863. Carson had been a good friend to all tribes of Indians, had learned many dialects, and was held in high regard by the various tribes and their leaders. He would have preferred not to have conducted such an aggressive military campaign but he was ordered to do so by his commanding General.

To this day, many Navajo still support Carson; others despise him. The Long Walk

Beginning in the spring of 1864, around 9,000 Navajo men, women and children were forced to embark on a trek of over 300 miles to Fort Sumner, New Mexico, for internment at Bosque Redondo.

The internment at Bosque Redondo was a failure for many reasons as the government failed to provide an adequate supply of water, wood, provisions, and livestock for

4,000–5,000 people. Large scale crop failure and disease were also endemic during this time, as well as raids by other tribes and civilians. In 1868, a treaty was negotiated between Navajo leaders and the Federal government allowing the surviving Navajo to return to a reservation on a portion of their former homeland.

By treaty, the Navajo were allowed to leave the reservation for trade with permission from the military or local Indian Agent. Eventually, the arrangement lead to a gradual end in Navajo raids as the tribe was able to increase the size of livestock and crops. In addition, the tribe was able to increase the size of the Navajo reservation from 3.5 million acres to the 16 million acres as it stands today; however, economic conflicts with nonNavajo continued for many years as civilians and companies exploited resources assigned to the Navajo. The US government made leases for livestock grazing, took land for railroad development, and permitted mining on Navajo land without consultation with the tribe.

Whites who had settled on the reservation and had fenced off the river from the Navajo caused an investigation which found evidence of many nonNavajo ranches. Only three

were active, and the owners wanted payment for their improvements before leaving. Scott ejected them.

In 1890, a local rancher refused to pay the Navajo a fine of livestock. The Navajos tried to collect it, and whites in southern Colorado and Utah claimed that 9,000 of the Navajo people were on a warpath. A small military detachment out of Fort Wingate restored white citizens to order. Some Americans were strongly sympathetic to the Navajo. In 1937, Mary Cabot Wheelwright and Hastiin Klah, an esteemed and influential Navajo singer, or medicine man, founded The Wheelwright Museum of the American Indian. It is a repository for sound recordings, manuscripts, paintings, and sandpainting tapestries of the Navajo people. It also featured exhibits to express the beauty, dignity, and logic of Navajo religion. When Klah met Cabot in 1921, he had witnessed decades of efforts by the US government and missionaries to assimilate the Navajo people into mainstream society. Children were sent away to Indian boarding schools, where they were to learn English and practice Christianity. They were prohibited from using their own languages and reli-

gion. The museum was founded to preserve the religion and traditions of the Navajo people, which Klah was sure would soon be lost forever.

In the 1940s, during World War II, the United States denied the Navajo welfare relief because of the Navajos’ communal society. Eventually, in December 1947, the Navajos were provided relief in the post-war period to relieve the hunger that they had had to endure for many years. Navajo Code Talkers played an important role during World War II by relaying information using their own language, which the enemy was unable to understand or decode.

In the 1940s, large quantities of uranium were discovered in Navajo land. From then into the early 21st century, the US allowed mining without sufficient environmental protection for workers, waterways and land. The Navajo have claimed high rates of death and illness from lung disease and cancer resulting from environmental contamination. Since the 1970s, legislation has helped to regulate the industry and reduce the toll, but the government has not offered holistic treatment and comprehensive compensation is yet forthcoming. How the Navajo will be treated this time around remains in question.

One of the speakers said he wasn't an advocate . . . he was immediately challenged, saying he was, indeed, an advocate. He denied it one more time and was challenged again . . .and finally said, "OK.' The same speaker was asked if this wasn’t a pressure tactic: "pass this initiative or we'll bankrupt the city with lawsuits." (Not an empty challenge. Unfortunately, there is a strong likliehood he/they have the law on their side.) He wiggled and wandered and said something like this was a compromise. (Probably true, but a compromise formed from strength).

Another member challenged the same speaker, whom I believe was an attorney, and told the speaker, "don't BS us." Which rather shocked the speaker. He may never have heard the term BS before, being an attorney and all. And so now, this club, which prefers to be apolitical, will have heard both sides of the issue.

The Escondido Public Market (that’s what I’d like to see it called) is something I’m heartily in favor of. My post Coming soon? The Escondido Public Market elicited many comments when it went online back in November, and it now looks like the idea could become a reality. Yesterday afternoon, Tom D’ Agosta, who has been the driving force behind popular spots on Grand like the French Bakery, Continental Deli and Sirino’s (Vincent’s) wants to create a Public Market in my least favorite building on Grand. As the plans presented at yesterday’s Economic Development Subcommittee meeting showed D’Agosta wants to purchase the building and then renovate it inside and out to create a market that will specialize in food. Not just fruits and vegetables, but cupcakes, doughnuts, cheeses, meats and many other interesting food items. He also hopes to have local brews and wines as well as a restaurant across the back with outdoor seating and cook-

What You Should Know About Teeth Whitening An Update

These days, "whiter teeth" is one of the most popular requests we get from dental patients, and tooth-whitening procedures are in high demand with everyone being more and more preoccupied with health and fitness. As we diet and exercise our way to a more youthful appearance one of its hallmarks is having a bright, beautiful smile. Studies show that an attractive smile can influence society's estimation of a person's overall well being and that an enhanced perception of someone's well being promotes their success in business and social endeavors. Everyone loves a bright white smile, and there are a variety of products and procedures available to help you improve the look of

Begin with a Dental Checkup – Your dentist can diagnose and treat any pressing oral health conditions and determine which whitening procedure will work for you. Once the dentist determines the reason for discoloration – injury, food or tobacco stains, childhood or teen antibiotics – a suitable whitening method can be selected. Without this you could be wasting time and money using whitening products that aren’t effective for your kind of stain.

Have Your Whitening Done in a Clean and Safe Environment – Teeth whitening chemicals if not applied properly can damage your teeth and gums resulting in burns or infections, and “kiosk” whitenings are done by people wearing “scrubs” or laboratory coats who are made to look like “health care professionals,” but aren’t. Dental offices use licensed professionals and strict disinfection protocol including washing hands, changing examination gloves and disinfecting work surfaces after each patient. Choosing the Right Procedure – There are three ways to whiten

He came to the Subcommittee — Mayor Abed and Councilman Masson — seeking $200,000 to cover the cost of exteriors renovations that would include garage-style doors in the front (a la Plan 9 Alehouse) and a refiguring of the area on the alley. His hope was that the City would use money from their facade improvement program to fund all that work. But there was one big problem, there is only about $6000 left in the fund and the program was suspended in favor of an aggressive graffiti removal program championed by the Mayor. And so where would the money come from, if at all? Listening to the ensuing discussion was a window into how deals get done in Escondido.

D’Agosta reminded everyone (along with the Mayor and Councilman Masson, there was City Manager Phillips, City Attorney Epp and the Directors of Planning, Building and Economic Development as well as half a dozen residents) of all his work in Escondido. D’Agosta also made a point of the fact that the City had provided $500,000 to the Mingei Museum when they purchased

your smile: 1) Chairside Bleaching, 2) At – Home Bleaching and 3) Whitening Toothpastes. After examination, your dentist will offer you the option of either 1 or 2 because the 3rd choice, Whitening toothpastes aren’t as effective but are frequently prescribed as an after treatment way of maintaining your whiteness.

Chairside Bleaching - This treatment uses a concentrated form of peroxide and requires the application of a “rubber shield” to protect your soft tissues (lips, gums, etc.) prior to active whitening. A special light and/or laser will be used to enhance the whitening process (i.e. Zoom Whitening Systems). Chairside Bleaching has the advantage of allowing multiple applications to remove the more stubborn stains in your mouth. At – Home Bleaching – These products are gels or strips

the old J C Penny building. He also said he felt the building he was buying should be considered four storefronts, each eligible for facade improvement funds. Again, City Staff noted there was no money in that fund. When D’Agosta said he planned to pay the City back, Councilman Masson jumped in and began to push for the project.The Mayor said he trusted D’Agosta and knew he would do a great project, but noted that the City would not get involved in a private investment but thought they might find a way via fee waivers. City Manager Phillips noted that with Lexus and Target, they never gave cash but allowed sale tax to be kept.) When D’Agosta said he believed the Market would generate $4 million in sales tax, Phillips observed that would only amount to $40,000 for the City since they only get to keep 1%.

Councilman Masson tired of discussions about past actions, saying he didn’t care how we’ve done things in the past, we need to lead. The Mayor said they had to be careful about subsidies. Councilman Masson said we need to invest, maybe a loan. The Mayor said it was worth exploring incentives,

containing different concentrations of carbamide peroxide (10%, 16%, 22%). The gels are most effective when used with custom-fitted mouth guards which hold the gels against the teeth. For those with teeth severely stained, home trays can be used beforehand to help condition teeth for better results at chairside. The custom trays can also double as desensitizing trays that can be used either before or after chairside bleaching to minimize discomfort.

Smile whitening is no longer a luxury reserved for the rich and famous. Well-tolerated, noninvasive, and affordable treatments are available to help whiten your teeth and reap the psychological and socialemotional benefits of a whiter, brighter smile!

released a list of commendations. Among them was a single notation for an “unnamed Negro.” The NAACP asked President Franklin D. Roosevelt to determine the name of the sailor and award him the Distinguished Service Cross, at that time the secondhighest combat honor. The Navy Board of Awards in Washington D. C., revealed the name of the “unknown Negro” sailor was Third Class Petty Officer "Doris Miller." The Pittsburgh Courier initiated a write-in campaign to send Miller to the Naval Academy.

His combat recognition made him one of the first heroes of World War II. He was commended by Secretary of the Navy Frank Knox, and personally recognized by Fleet Admiral Chester W. Nimitz aboard the aircraft carrier USS Enterprise. Nimitz presented Miller with the Navy Cross, the third-highest award for gallantry during combat the Navy awarded at the time. Today the Navy Cross is the second-highest honor for the Navy and Marines. Miller was promoted to Mess Attendant First Class on June 1, 1942. The Pittsburgh Courier continued to push to return Miller to the U.S. for a war bond tour, but he already was back in the country doing just that.

After training in Hawaii, Miller was assigned to the USS Liscome Bay, which took part in the Battle of Makin Island. On November 24, that ship was sunk with only 272 survivors from the crew of more than 900. Miller was not among them. Dorey Miller has slipped into historical obscurity, however actor Cuba Gooding played Miller in a few brief scenes in the recent film, “Pearl Harbor,” which returned the sailor’s heroism to brief note.

OUR MEMORIAL DAY

Many Americans look forward to Memorial Day. It can be a day of no work. It is a long weekend to get away. There will be social and family gatherings. Mortuaries will feature events, often with a special speaker connected to the military. Local pastors will be asked to say a prayer. There will be parades, bands and old veterans, who have long outgrown their uniforms, carrying discarded M-1 rifles, leading the crowd. Then there will be a solemn gathering at the local small village cemetery with a brief speech by one of the townspersons. At times, there is a reading of names memorializing those who have

The impact of a MEMORIAL DAY for me was when I visited many of the military cemeteries, while serving as a Navy Chaplain in various parts of the world. There was always a quiet and dignified spirit in those sacred places. I read the names of men I never met. I thought about all the loss to humanity, families never experienced, dreams never fulfilled, fears now quieted in death. As a Chaplain, I wondered about their FAITH and beliefs. Did their religion help them to die? What, if any future, would they have had? I could not leave those hallowed grounds without a tear or prayer.

It is necessary for us to ask what kind of world would we have without the American war dead? If the tyrants who have initiated these wars were successful, we would be speaking a different language, there would be no Jewish neighbors or entertainers, no freedom of speech, the press, or religion. It does not take long after reflection, to imagine what our lives would be experiencing.

For all the war dead who have given their lives, there is a spiritual call to not only wear a paper poppy, but also to thank Almighty God for what we don’t have, as much as for what we do have.

it back to Clay” [City Manager Phillips] to figure out. Then Councilman Masson said something that reminded me this was a tight knit group that knew each other and worked to make things happen amongst themselves. “Is Zech handling this?” he said, referring to Commercial Broker Don Zech (who handled the purchase of the building for John Paul the Great Catholic University). “Ask him to cut his fee.” As the discussion began to wind down, it came back to the facade improvement program and City Manager Phillips observed that the “program is yours to incentivize” and you can change how you do it. The Mayor said again that he didn’t want to get into loaning money and the City Manager said he could bring back information on what it would be under current facade rules and see where they wanted to go from there. Where will this end up? D’Agosta says he needs the $200,000 — “Downtown is

The Social Butterfly thesocialbutterfly@cox.net tough, we have to figure out a way.” The Mayor seemed willing to find a way to consider the building as actually being four buildings — which would mean four facades. And D’Agosta did mention that the old 150 Grand got a $50,000 facade improvement from the City back in the 90s. I would be very surprised if that full $200,000 was approved by the Council, but with what looked like decent budget numbers presented on Wednesday night, there might enough money to replenish the facade improvement program just in the nick of time. Stay tuned.
