foreword by lyle e davis
In today's fast paced society we don’t take the time to write letters like we used to. And when we do, we often make a pretty poor job of it. It has become a lost art.
We men are probably the worst when it comes to writing letters. Particularly love letters. I suppose, in part, it’s due to our inability to express our deepest emotions and feelings. What follows is a story that leads up to the most beautiful Love Letter I've ever read or heard.
Born March 28, 1829, in Smithfield, R.I., Sullivan Ballou was educated at Phillips Academy in Andover, Mass.; Brown University in Providence, R.I. and the National Law School in Ballston, N.Y. He was admitted to the Rhode Island Bar in 1853. Ballou devoted his brief life to public service. He was elected in 1854 as clerk of the Rhode Island House of Representatives, later serving as its speaker. He married Sarah Hart Shumway on October 15, 1855, and the following year saw the birth of their first child, Edgar. A second son, William, was born in 1859. Ballou immediately entered the military in 1861 after the war broke out. He became judge advocate of the Rhode Island militia. Responding to his nation’s call, the former Speaker of the Rhode Island House of Representatives enlisted in the 2nd Rhode Island Infantry, where he was elected major.
By mid-July, the swirling events in the summer of 1861 had brought Ballou and his unit to a camp of instruction in the nation’s capital. With the movement of the federal forces into Virginia imminent, Sullivan Ballou penned this letter to his wife. His concern that he “shoud fall on the battlefield” proved all too true. One week after composing his missive, as the war’s first major battle began in earnest on the plans of Manassas, Ballou was struck and killed as the Rhode Islanders advanced The Paper - 760.747.7119
from Matthews Hill.
Regrettably the story of Sullivan Ballou does not end with a his death on the field of battle and a piercing letter to a young widow. During the weeks and months that followed the battle, Confederate forces occupying the area of the battlefield desecrated the graves of many fallen Federals. As a means of extracting a revenge of sorts against the Union regiment at whose hand they had suffered, a Georgia regiment sought retribution
against the Rhode Islanders.
Supposed they had disinterred the body of Colonel John Slocum, commanding the Rhode Islanders during the battle, the Confederates desecrated the body and dumped it in a ravine in the vicinity of the Sudley Methodist Church. Immediately following the Confederate evacuation from the Manassas area in March 1862, a contingent of Rhode Island officials, including Governor William Sprague, visited the Bull Run battlefield
to exhume thir fallen sons and return them to their native soil. Led to the defiled body, the party examined the reamains and a tattered remnant of uniform insignia and discovered that the Confederates had mistakenly uncovered the body of Major Sillivan Ballou, not his commanding officer. The remains of his body were transported back to Rhode Island, where they were laid to rest in Providence’s Swan Point Cemetery.
Of the tens of thousands of let-

ters written in the days leading up to the First Battle of Manassas, certainly none is more famous than the last letter of Major Sullivan Ballou. As poignant as it is prescient, Ballou’s epistle captures not only the spirit of patriotic righteousness that led many men to the enlistment office, but it also drives home the stark reality that casualties of war were not confined to the battlefield. There were hundreds of thousands of sodiers who would not return to their families over the next four years, leaving behind a Sarah, or a Willie and Edgar who would “never know a father’s love and care.” Very few, however, had the foresight or the eloquence to leave behind a legacy as touching as Sullivan Ballou’s to his grief-stricken family. The following was transcribed from a tape of the soundtrack of the PBS mini-series "The Civil War;"
A week before the battle of Bull Run, Sullivan Ballou, a Major in the Second Rhode Island Volunteers, wrote home to his wife in Smithfield:
July 14, 1861
Give Us This Day Our Daily Chuckle This week, a compendium of wit, wisdom and neat stuff you can tell at parties. Enjoy! Ahhh ... the Innocence of Youth...
Little Bruce and Margaret are only 10 years old, but they know they are in love.
One day they decide that they want to get married, so Bruce goes to Margaret's father to ask him for her hand. Bruce bravely walks up to him and says, "Mr. Smith, me and Margaret are in love and I want to ask you for her hand in marriage."
Thinking that this was just the cutest thing, Mr. Smith replies, "Well Bruce, you are only 10.. Where will you two live?" Without even taking a moment to think about it, Bruce replies,
The indications are very strong that we shall move in a few days, perhaps tomorrow; and lest I should not be able to write you again, I feel impelled to write a few lines that may fall onto your eye when I am no more. I have no misgivings about or lack of confidence in the cause in which I am engaged, and my courage does not halt or falter.
I know how American civilization now leans upon the triumph of the government and how great a debt we owe to those who went before us through the blood and suffering of the revolution. I am willing, perfectly willing, to lay down all my joys in this life to help maintain this government and to pay that debt.
Sarah, my love for you is deathless. It seems to bind me with mighty cables that nothing but omnipotence can break and yet my love of country comes over me like a strong wind and bears me irresistably with all those chains to the battlefield. The memory of all the blissful moments I have enjoyed with you come crowding over me and I feel most deeply grateful to God and you that I've
"In Margaret's room. It's bigger than mine and we can both fit there nicely."
Still thinking this is just adorable, Mr. Smith says with a huge grin, "Okay, then how will you live? You're not old enough to get a job. You'll need to support Margaret." Again, Bruce instantly replies, "Our allowance, Margaret makes five bucks a week and I make 10 bucks a week. That's about 60 bucks a month, so that should do us just fine."
Mr. Smith is impressed....Bruce has put so much thought into this. "Well Bruce, it seems like you have everything figured out. I just have one more question. What will you do if the two of you should have little children of your own?"
Bruce just shrugs his shoulders and says, "Well, we've been lucky so far." Mr. Smith no longer thinks the little jerk is adorable. Life After Death

enjoyed them for so long. How hard it is for me to give them up and burn to ashes the hopes and the future years when, God willing, we might still have lived and loved together and see our boys grown up to honorable manhood around us. If I do not return, my dear Sarah, never forget how much I loved you, nor that when my last breath escapes me on the battlefield, it will whisper your name. Forgive my many faults and the many pains I have caused

Making Daley Ranch Accessible to Everyone
For me, an afternoon hike means dropping off books at the Library, picking up documents at the City Clerk’s office and then shopping at the Tuesday Farmer’s Market. But a friend of mine has convinced me to meet her at the Daley Ranch a couple of times to take a morning hike. Each time we found spaces in the derelict lot at the foot of the road to the Ranch and then hopped onto a shuttle bus for the bumpy ride up the hill. (Dogs were allowed onboard until last time, when the rules were NO DOGS.) But then the shuttle bus stopped and so did I.
Since then the City has spent in the neighborhood of $1.5 – $2 million (An UT article from 2012 Restored Daley Ranch expected to open this summer can’t seem to quite pin the number down and neither can I) restoring the Ranch House for events — weddings, meetings, special dinners — as well as repaving the road that leads from the parking lot to the Ranch House. During (last) Wednesday evening’s Capital Improvement Program budget meeting, Daley
Ranch improvements were called out by Councilman Gallo because of the price tag for the Public Restroom Building that will be built across from the Ranch. (I am delighted at this idea.) “I just want to have a preview of what a $390,000 restroom will be. It seems like an awfully nice place” … Staff explained it was building a complete facility from the ground up (including a septic system) with design elements from the Ranch House, working to create a building that looks like it belongs there. Councilman Gallo said, “That’s where we were Friday night,” referring to the Chamber of Commerce Annual Dinner held at the Ranch House the previous weekend that I think was attended by most, if not all, of the City Council. Well, that subject came up at the end of the meeting when Mayor Abed, another guest at the Friday night soiree, said, … “it is our goal to open this Daley Ranch for the entire community to enjoy. It’s a treasure, it’s beautiful, it’s historic … but the parking lot down there it’s dirt, it’s really a problem if we want to hold weddings and nice events there I think we can find I don’t know what the cost is $25 – $50,000 dollars approximately. Councilman Morasco: I applaud you on that because we do need to pave that.” Mayor Abed: “So Mr. Phillips [City Manager] do you have any comments?” There was then discussion about acreage and costs, with the Mayor noting it has cost him
$25,000 to have 1/2 an acre paved and Staff thinking the Daley parking lot was 2-3 acres. City Manager Phillips: “Bottom line. We’ll look into it.” Mayor Abed: “I think it would be great to have nice events there and have this area ready for parking.” So it looks like City Manager Phillips has been tasked with finding something in the neighborhood of $100,000 to $200,000. The CIP Budget that was approved has a Reserve of $3.5 million for “future projects” and it sounds like the Mayor just found one. Like Councilman Morasco, I applaud this idea. My only comment would be “why did it take you so long?” I know people who hike/bike/walk at the Ranch have been asking for that lot to be improved, but it has never been a priority. I find it sad that it’s not until the Daley Ranch House is made over into a revenue generating venue (rather than the History/Information Center those most closely involved with the Ranch has suggested) that things like the parking lot finally get attention. But hey, if it gets done, that will be great. But… If Mayor Abed truly wants to open this Daley Ranch for the entire community to enjoy I hope he will ask City Manager Phillips to find the funds to bring back the shuttle bus, at least on weekends.

The Paper • Page 4 • June 26, 2014 Social Media A-Buzz With Rumors Regarding Detention Center in Escondido for Illegals
The Obama administration last Friday abandoned plans to use a defunct college in a rural Virginia town as housing for some of the illegal immigrant children flooding across the border, bowing to fierce local opposition as the government struggles to find sites to put the thousands of unaccompanied minors. Similar opposition was expected from many Escondido residents who are up in arms over plans for a proposed “Temporary Housing Facility,” being considered for the former Palomar Continuing Care facility at 1817 Avendia Del Diablo (at the southwest corner of the intersection with W. Valley Parkway). The facility would house illegal immigrant children ages 6 – 17.
These illegal minors would, under the proposal, be supervised through the Southwest Key Programs that is funded through the US Department of Health and Human Services, Office of Refugee Resettlement. The Planning Commission heard the request for a Conditional Use Permit to operate a 96 bed unaccompa-

Doggie Time and 4th of July Don’t Mix . . .
Please! If you love your dog, and I know you do, leave your dog inside the home on the 4th of July. Every year, frightened dogs run away from their home property, scared witless by the explosions of 4th of July fireworks, legal and otherwise.
Invariably, humane societies and rescue shelters wind up with an overabundance of frightened pooches after the 4th has come and gone. Sadly, some of those dogs will wind up being euthanized (killed) because their owners didn’t think to contact the different agencies responsible for housing stray dogs.
nied youth care facility, on Tuesday, June 24th.
The facility would be operated by Southwest Key on behalf of the United States Department of Health and Human Services. This facility would be funded through the US Department of Health and Human Services, Office of Refugee Resettlement. It would have an operating budget of $6-7 million and will provide 90 jobs in Escondido.
The Paper has learned through very reliable sources that the Planning Commission likely will have denied the application and, if it did not, we are advised the Escondido City Council will, by a 4-1 vote. The only council member believed to support the project is Deputy Mayor Olga Diaz.
“We have heard the concerns of many of the residents and leaders of Lawrenceville about the proposal to temporarily care for unaccompanied children at the now-closed Saint Paul's College,” Department of Health and Human Services spokesman Mark A. Weber said. “We have taken this proposal off the table and will move on quickly to identify other sites to temporarily house these vulnerable children.”

They held their annual Gala last Saturday night at the Elks Lodge in Escondido and had a great three-piece German oompah band playing for your listening and dancing pleasure. They gone and went and done it up right good!

A number of $500 prizes were won but the grand prize of $5,000 went to Escondido High School and Orange Glen High School Key Clubs in equal shares. There’s a story behind that, told by Dr. Steve Heilman, the evening’s host. “A couple weeks ago, fellow

Letters to the Editor Re: Commentary
Lyle; Your opinion in your Commentary coluumn in The Paper of 19 June 2014 is shared by a good many people but this ninetygenarian looks at things with a different background. In the late 1930s Nazi Germany's "master race" was on the rampage and Japan had declared it's "Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere". No one was willing to challenge either of them, England had its empire "on which the sun never set." France was busy with it's own colonies and the US felt secure, behind two oceans. So, nothing was done to stop the two aggressors. The Wehrmacht (think Al Qaeda, Taliban, Hamas or you name it) blitzkrieged Poland and the low countries. France's Kiwanian Mike Donaldson bought a $100 ticket. It was ticket #99. Mike told me ‘if 99 is drawn, the $5000 will go to the two key clubs, not me.” . . . turns out old #99 was, indeed, the winning ticket drawn.
We’ll likely be back next year. I won $500 several years ago and we keep going back, hoping to win the big pot of $5,000. It’s the major fundraiser for that club with all the really elderly members. This year they awarded $20,000 in scholarships so they sure put the money to good use. In addition, they and their Kiwanis Key-Clubbers, high school kids who are in training to one day before real, live Kiwanians themselves, are often busy with community service projects such as landscaping projects.
Fortunately, American scientists devised a nuclear bomb before our potential enemies did and President Truman ordered it used to end a brutal war against a fanatical foe, sparing a good many American lives. Germany and Japan surrendered unconditionally and with the help of the United States have developed into prosperous, peaceful countries. What has followed has been compromise in Korea and defeat in Vietnam, not through military action but by political mistakes and indecision, often through undue influence by loud minorities.
Question: Are North Korea and Vietnam as well off as Japan and Germany? What is happening in the Middle East now? Some Muslims are doing something similar to what the nations of Germany and Japan

did back in the 1930s and have stated that they intend to conquer the world and impose a Caliphate upon or kill everyone. They have already infiltrated some European countries and have even succeeded in imposing Sharia law in some parts of those countries where they are in the majority. After living through and seeing the positive results of total victory and the negatives of compromise and defeat, I strongly support the former and believe that the US should be proactive by keeping in touch with all parts of the world. In this time of access to global transportation and communication I don't think it is wise to even think about isolation. To stay involved certainly has costs in both lives and money but bad alternatives are too imminent and even more costly. These are some musings of one old guy.

Majority Party Budget Wastes Taxpayer Dollars
Last week, the state legislature passed the 2014-15 budget, but not without controversy.
Legislators voted on the main budget bill and a variety of related bills called trailer bills. These bills outlined specific funding categories, and one controversial trailer bill, SB 862, changed the permitted use of Cap and Trade funds.
The Cap and Trade Program is a harmful economic policy that was established without the two-thirds vote requirement for taxes. The program, created by the California Air Resources Board, a state agency, collects taxes from businesses based on their pollution output, without oversight or authorization by the legisla-

The collected money was originally designated to finance programs to reduce carbon emissions and improve air quality. However, the recent majority party budget deal redirected 40 percent of Cap and Trade money to finance High Speed Rail. This was a blatant waste of taxpayer dollars. High Speed Rail shares bipartisan opposition and lacks public support, but the majority party still chose to finance a failing train project at the expense of businesses and families in California.

Texas to Murrieta; A Symptom of Failure
Illegal immigration is a frequent topic of debate at both the state and federal levels. In recent weeks, concerns over the impact of illegal immigration were heightened locally when plans by the Border Patrol to process 500 illegal immigrants from Texas at the Murrieta station were made public. The Murrieta station was reportedly ill-equipped to handle this large influx of illegal immigrants. Fortunately, local Border Patrol officials indicate that they are not currently transporting undocumented immigrants from Texas to this region and that a proposal to do so was an option that was never implemented. Of course this begs the question; why are large numbers of illegal immigrants in need of processing or transport across the Southwest United States in the first place?

‘Social Butterfly’ Cont. on Page 7
The situation in Murrieta, though apparently resolved for now, exemplifies California’s illegal immigration problem. It is the constitutionally mandated responsibility of the federal government to secure our nation’s borders. The proposed transfer of large numbers of illegal immigrants from Texas to Southern California is further evidence that the federal government is derelict in its duty to the people of this country through its failure to secure our borders. This situation is further compounded by the negative federal reaction when states attempt to enforce laws locally that the federal government refuses to enforce nationally.
Transporting illegal immigrants across state lines will not resolve this problem. The growing illegal immigration crisis must be resolved at the federal level, sooner rather than later.

For far too long the debate has been boiled down to a presumption on two extremes that there is some kind of zero sum solution--“Arm everyone and the mass shootings will stop”-“Ban all firearms to end the killing.”
Taking away guns from lawabiding citizens raises the disturbing specter of government forces swooping into homes to weapons—someconfiscate thing that should send chills
through the hearts of conservatives and liberals alike. And, of course, critics of the ban guns philosophy are correct in saying that if you take away the guns from the people who obey the law, only those who don’t will be armed.
Just as chilling to me is the rather absurd argument by the NRA and others in the pro-gun crowd that if we just armed everyone, the mass killings that seem to have become so prevalent lately would largely be a thing of the past. It should be noted that in one of the latest shooting episodes, one of the dead victims was an armed citizen trying to do just that. If we are to believe the mantra that “guns don’t kill people…people kill people,” doesn’t it follow that, if you give more people guns, there will be more killing?
Many, if not most, of the vocal advocates for gun bans seem to come from the more liberal and densely populated East and West coasts of our country. For the vast majority then, police protection is generally minutes away and game hunting a foreign pastime. In

Authorities are anxious to find the individual who thought it would be fun to wrap rubber bands around the muzzle of a Chihuahua puppy and leave them there for so long it caused serious injuries to the pup as well as pain. The pup, abandoned, was saved by the San Diego Humane Society on June 5th when someone brought the two month old pup in. The muzzle had been so tightly wrapped with rubber bands it had cut through to the bone. The pup, named Flynn, was found abandoned at a Chevron station in Oceanside.
The dog has been treated for weakness and he is now eating well and growing like a normal puppy. The severe laceration is very deep and will take some time to heal. He may need additional surgeries, officials said. “We rely on information from the community to be able to seek justice for these defenseless animals,” said Dr. Gary Weitzman, humane society president.

Benedict Arnold: America’s First Traitor
Most Americans have heard the name “Benedict Arnold,” usually in a disparaging manner. He was a businessman turned Continental Army officer, serving in America’s Revolutionary War. The problem was he jumped ships to join the British.
Arnold originally fought with distinction and valor for the Continental Army, but when he thought he was being unfairly mistreated as a hero of the Revolution, he defected to the British Army.
Born in Connecticut, Arnold was a merchant operating ships on the Atlantic Ocean when the war broke out in 1775. After joining the Army, he was commissioned a captain and rose through the ranks as he distinguished himself through acts of intelligence and valor. Arnold’s actions included leadership and bravery in the battles at Montreal and Quebec. Also during the capture of Fort Ticonderoga in 1775. He was promoted to major general and participated in operations and action during the pivotal Battles of Saratoga in 1777.
Despite Arnold's successes, he was passed over for promotion by the Continental Congress while other officers claimed credit for some of his accomplishments. Adversaries in military and political circles brought charges of corruption or other malfeasance, but most often he was acquitted in formal inquiries. Congress investigated his accounts and found the colonists owed Arnold a lot of money because he spent much of his own money on the war effort. Frustrated and bitter at this,

These 27 Tips Give You The Edge When Selling Your Home

Midwest, as well as sparsely populated regions of the two coasts, police protection can be considerably further away, and hunting is part of a lifestyle. City-dwellers presuming to impose their sensibilities on these people to solve a problem that, for the most part occurs only in the more densely populated parts of our country seems patently unfair, not to mention targeting the wrong thing. Better mental health screening and stronger laws to keep guns out of the hands certainly seems a logical answer to at least one component of the problem but, where does the line get drawn and will more extreme measures to protect society from the mentally ill inadvertently keep some from seeking help? Would people suffering from conditions like depression and schizophrenia be tagged with a scarlet letter that makes them and their

And what of the possibility of violent video games having at least some influence on the behavior of young, impressionable boys and girls (mostly boys)? Video game makers—a multi-billion dollar industry, don’t forget—point to studies that absolve them of any responsibility despite what seems to be a growing frequency of shootings by young, disturbed shooters who played the games. Auto makers in the 1950s and cigarette manufacturers in the 1960s and 70s did pretty much the same thing. People with logical minds cannot be so sanguine. It’s time people on all sides admit a complex, ongoing tragedy such as the one we are witnessing can only be solved by finally acknowledging we all have a stake in it’s solution. Subscribe Today!

Oh, I know some of you go to some fancy resort, or may on an ocean cruise line and decide to have a relaxing massage. But you can get the very same thing right here in North County by just calling Cheri Simpson at 760.631-2238.
She’s trained at the Healing Hands of Holistic Health in Escondido back in 1994 and she’s been relaxing folks ever since. She’s worked with chiropractor’s patients as well as her own practice. She specializes in outcalls to the home and, occasionally, to businesses. She has studied a number of disciplines, including reflexology and accupressure.
Massages last a full 60 minutes and those sore, aching muscles of yours are going to feel about 600% better when the massage concludes. Her clientele runs about 50/50 as to women and men clients. You can call and book appointments from 9am to 8pm.

Give her a call, 760.631-2238. Tell her Groucho sent you. If you can’t remember the name Groucho, just tell her “The Man About Town” sent you.
(She’s probably too young to know who Groucho is.)
That’s it for this week. We’ll be back next week. Till then, keep a smile on your face and behave yourselves at all times as the Man About Town just might be watching.

as well the alliance with France and failure of Congress to accept Britain's 1778 proposal to grant full self-governance in the colonies, Arnold decided to change sides and opened secret negotiations with the British.
In July 1780, he was offered, continued to pursue and was awarded command of West Point (then a Continental Army fortress guarding the Hudson River). Arnold's scheme to surrender the fort to the British was exposed when American forces captured British Major John André, who was carrying papers that revealed the plot. Upon learning of André's capture, Arnold fled down the Hudson River to a British ship, narrowly avoiding capture by the forces of George Washington, who had been alerted to the plot.
Arnold received a commission as a brigadier general in the British Army, an annual pension of £360, and a lump sum of over £6,000. He led British forces on raids in Virginia, and against New London and Groton, Connecticut, before the war effectively ended with the American victory at Yorktown. In the winter of 1782, Arnold moved to London with his second wife, Margaret Shippen Arnold. He was well received by King George III and the Tories, but frowned upon by the Whigs.
In 1787, he returned to the merchant business with his sons Richard and Henry in St. John, New Brunswick. He returned to London to settle permanently in 1791, where he died in 1801. Because of the way he changed sides, his name quickly became a byword in United States for treason or betrayal. His conflicting legacy is recalled in the ambiguous nature of some of the memorials that have been placed in his honor.

people, especially seniors, walking the road up to the Ranch House is difficult, though they do fine once they reach the fairly flat trails. The attendees to the Chamber dinner didn’t make that hike Friday night, so let’s make it easy for everyone. And while we’re at it, let’s let pups ride the bus too.
In the end, I am left with some observations. At an Economic Subcommittee meeting held in February , there was a discussion about the Daley Ranch renovations. At that time Mayor Abed took the opportunity to take a swipe at environmental
Cash is a year and a half year old male beautiful German Shepherd. He weighs about 75 pounds and walks nice on a leash but could do with a little more training. He came into the Devore Animal Shelter in San Bernardino County as a stray from Yucaipa on June 10 and was to be killed by the shelter on June 16 but the Puppy Coalition with the direct assistance from Pryor's Planet Rescue of Encino was able to pull him just in the nick of time. Cash is a wonderful dog. He is friendly to people of all sizes (should be fine with children) and should be able to fit in anywhere. He is very thin and we are working with him on putting on a few pounds. He is in otherwise superb condition and would love a loving family to show you what a good family member he can be. He is one of the nicest dogs we have ever saved. If interested in Cash, call Bruce at 760-612-9156.
groups, saying “…they go overboard and want to protect things too much, denying people the right to enjoy it [Daley Ranch.]” Renovating the Ranch House is a good thing, but if it will only be open to those who pay to rent it and their guests, I don’t think we can say we’ve done that much to “open it to everyone.” I also note that the CIP budget assumes $50,000 a year in rental revenue which will be used to maintain the Ranch House. I hope that money will also be used to keep the Bathroom Building clean and open whenever people are on Daley Ranch property, including those who just come to enjoy the natural beauty of the area. And looking down the road a bit, I also hope that some of the funds from the Daley Ranch account — money that comes from the fact developers can buy credits that protect land at the Ranch that are being destroyed elsewhere –will be used for non-revenue generating work. As one attendee at the Subcommittee suggested, maybe the City should be spending some money on the other restoration work, namely habitat restoration. He explained that the permitting process was expensive and nonprofits couldn’t get work done there because the fees were so high. Maybe the Council could take a look at those fees, like they have at others, and see if there’s a way to make them lower. Because when it comes to funding the preservation of all of Daley Ranch, “we are still in difficult financial times.”

Imagination. It was a staple for baby boomers who made the transition from a radio based world to a television based world. Words and sounds from the radio took on completeness when we let our imagination connect the dots. Sometimes, the dots don’t always connect when we are trying to understand great spiritual truths. Theologians say we must make a “leap of faith” to complete the picture. Faith is the imagination of the soul. It takes us from what we hear and see, Peeps and Frosted Flakes, to things we can only imagine, quail and manna, God’s provision for our needs. And in that imagining, God makes it real for us. The songwriter, thinking about the great things of God, wrote, “I can only imagine.” That’s true, but it is faith that activates our imagination and connects the dots.

Staying Away From The Computer Factory Part II
Last week we discussed the fact that the overwhelming majority of malware infections are self-inflicted. We covered defensive measures users can take to avoid infection. To review this material on the Internet go to WWW.thecommunitypaper.com and open last week’s paper (06/19/2014) to page 12. The paging and zoom features are at the top.
PCs are like people in that they tend to slow down with age. Unlike people, PC’s youthful vigor can often be fully restored. The electronic circuits in a PC are capable of maintaining their speed indefinitely. The things that slow
TV, radio, and the WWW, buzz with ads promising to speed up your PC and cure the software problems that are slowing it down. Whether seen on the Internet, TV, or radio, these services are of little value, no value or simply scams. These companies offer free evaluations, scare you with a phony tally of you PCs “problems” and then offer to fix them for a price. If the methods used by Speed Counts, Speed Up My Computer, My Clean PC and all the rest really had value, real companies like Microsoft, HP, Dell AT&T, Cox etc. would be selling these services instead of no-name, fly by night snake oil purveyors who pop-up and disappear overnight. The speed up services offered by these companies are nearly all available as utilities in your Windows OS. You can do what the “snake oil” guys do all by yourself without allowing scam artists access to your PC. Here’s how. First, run MS Disc Clean-up.
Hit your Windows key and type Disk Clean-up. Then clear your browser history and run Defrag. Then go to your Startup menu and eliminate everything that is non-essential. You should have no more than five Items in Start-up. Now you’ve performed virtually all the items that the “snake oilers” would have performed except registry clean-up. You probably don’t need a registry clean-up but if you want to be thorough, download and run Cclean from www.piriform.com. We like Cclean. Now you’ve done essentially everything you would have paid to have done. If you have restored your PC to its original
speed feel free to go all giddy on us like the testimonials of folks in the “Speed Counts” commercials. If your efforts didn’t gain much speed, just be happy that it didn’t cost you any money.
A real PC clean-up requires an external scan of the entire hard drive by several programs including virus scans. That is not what the “snake oilers” do. They won’t get rid off viruses and they can’t repair or reinstall your OS. They can only do a few simple things that you can easily do for yourself. Caveat Emptor.

President Theodore Roosevelt
'In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American and nothing but an American ... There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag ... We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language ... and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.'
