Ever since we were little kids we’ve all had fascinations with horses, those magnificent, majestic creatures that are so beautiful to look at and fun to ride.

But not so much fun to clean up after, or feed, or groom. As we matured we learned that there was a lot of hard work in owning and caring properly for a horse. Still, we never lost our admiration for these gorgeous creatures.

One man became so enamored of them that he undertook a mission to sculpt them, from driftwood, of all things. Photos supporting this article attest to the fact that he did a pretty good job. He catches the majestic beauty of horses galThe Paper - 760.747.7119

loping through the sea, rearing up on their hind legs, adopting most any pose . . . he has captured them. The life-size sculptures are the work of Birmingham, Englandbased master craftsman, 46 year-old James Doran-Webb, He spent a painstaking six months assembling those horses galloping through the surf as part of celebrations to mark Chinese New Year in Singapore.

Each of the three sculptures stands at around 6ft tall - or 16 hands as horse lovers might say - and is made from roughly 400 pieces of driftwood of varying sizes built around a stainless steel skeleton. Each horse weighs around half a ton and can take the weight of five people. Doran-Webb made all three with moveable limbs and neck so they can be arranged into

lifelike poses, as these stunning photographs show.

Doran-Webb comes from Birmingham but has been living in Cebu City in the Philippines for 26 years where he runs a workshop.

Doran-Webb went on to say: 'I started off collecting the driftwood myself in my kayak but now I have a network of locals who I pay to collect it for me which helps put money back into poor communities.

The intricate trio of horses was constructed for the Gardens by the Bay in Singapore, a nature park similar to Cornwall, England’s Eden Project.

The wood he uses in his sculptures has been salvaged from beaches and rivers around Cebu by a network of locals who Doran-Webb pays to collect it. For every kilo of wood salvaged, he plants a seedling at one of several sites around the city.

He said: 'The three thoroughbred horses are my latest driftwood creation... Each horse took two months to make and

'By the time they are finished each one weighs 500kgs and can hold the weight of four or five people,' he added.

The wood Doran-Webb uses for his sculptures is around 50 years old, and according to the craftsman it is ideal to work with.

He said: 'It is an oily wood so it withstands weather and it is very tensile - it's a dream to work with. I started out with sketches of the horses then once I was happy with them I made miniature models of them, which took a month on its

Cebu is sheltered at the geographical centre of the Philippines. It is a long thin island, with a mountain range running down the centre.

hammers, axes and an air compressor rules the working day as I, alongside nine assistants, work on several projects. My tools are primarily hand-held. I have a chain-saw and specialised angle grinder bits, however, my tools of choice are an axe, a saw and my chisels, which I use to mould the inside contours of the driftwood to fit the underlying profile of the piece I am making. Each piece of driftwood is either bolted, screwed or nailed using stainless steel components onto the base frame and I use pneumatic tools for this part. My assistants are artists in their own right – trained by me over the course of a number of years. Most of them are the sons of carpenters who have themselves worked for me for over twenty years in my finefurniture carpentry shop. Ideas come and go and when a good one pops into mind I will make initial drawings and studies of the piece, pouring hours of research into gaining an understanding of the animal and its habitat. I find myself drawn to movement ... a stag galloping along open ground, two foxes playing, a stallion rearing up in fright as a way of communicating vitality and drama to the sculpture.

with the piece, I will draw the final study which I will use as a reference in making a full sized plywood template of the subject. From there we weld a stainless steel frame which takes a couple of days to make and numerous revisions to correct. I try my absolute best to identify proportional mistakes before the hard work begins mistakes in the frame generally become noticeable once the piece is finished, which means a total rework. Once the frame is as good as I can get it we start to attach large pieces of driftwood onto the stainless steel frame, bolting them securely into place. Onto this I then screw a second layer of driftwood, taking great care to select the driftwood that matches the flow of the muscles and body. The whole process can take thousands of hours.

the 150kg very dense driftwood base was wheeled into place on a custom built carriage that I had made back home in my studio. With the base on its side, the 40cm long, 3cm Ø stainless steel bolts that extend from Arteius' hooves were inserted into the locating holes in the base, and the nuts were screwed into place.

Young children are especially appreciative of my art! Not yet of the age where showing interest is totally uncool, young heads will do a 180 swing, locked onto the sculpture as we drive by.

My large scale outdoor sculptures are built on a 6-9cm Ø stainless steel tubular base, designed to embed into the ground, onto four pre-cemented blocks (not supplied!). Straps

Five of us lifted the sculpture upright and the last job was to offer up the antlers into place. Artemis, a stately mare glancing right, was next up for delivery. Although Jersey is only 20km from side to side you can get lost on its myriad small country lanes and the next stop, all of 5 km away as the bird flies, took an hour to reach.

Delivering my sculptures to destination turns into a massive ego trip. If being noticed is your "thing", try strapping a horse onto the back of your pick-up. It works every time.

Artemis was winched into her final resting place in a green field soon to be orchard, to the absolute fury of the resident black labrador, who lunged and retreated and barked his opposition to this intrusion into his territory!

Installing the sculpture was still a tricky affair. First off,

hold the stainless steel tubes and are bolted into the cement blocks. River pebbles are great to fill in the recess around the base and also keep earth and rainwater from coming into constant contact with the hooves. Although the driftwood I use to make my sculptures is extremely dense, continual contact and exposure to earth and water will eventually degrade the wood. About the Artist

James Doran-Webb grew up in a privileged home and attended only the best British school. He traveled a great deal as his parents travelled extensively in purusit of art and antiquities, which represented their business interests.

James thus spent his teenage years schooling in Basel, Switzerland, on the Adriatic coast of Italy, on the East coast of the States and central France before returning to London to take his ‘A’ levels at Davies Laing and Dick, Notting Hill Gate, two more tops schools. Plans to study History of Art at The Courtold Institute in London were shelved - while attending college he had started his own antiques business with a weekend stand at Portobello Market in London.

He has always loved antiques and has been working with wood, making models and miniature sculptures since he was a small boy. His childhood was spent in the workshops of his parents’ antiques restoration company both in the UK and in France, whittling, carving and refinishing. By the time he reached his late teens he was not only an accomplished antique dealer but also a very competent cabinet maker, and was quite at home restoring such varied items as heavily carved oak and walnut furniture to the odd Queen Anne finely veneered bureau


He first travelled to The Philippines by chance in 1989; it was to be an extended holiday. It was love at first site. He was entranced by the countryside, the beaches, the wildlife and above all by the people with their natural flair for color a n d artistry. In 1990 he set up a company designing and making a range of wooden objects to sell in Europe and the USA, boxes and picture f r a m e s encrusted in shells and marble, large p a p i e r mache animals and pieces of fine furniture made from wood salvaged from old

During his “AdventureRacing” days, he was a wellknown local sportsman, twice an “Iron man” with many regional Adventure R a c i n g titles under his belt. He has extensive local knowledge of most of the larger islands that make up the archipelago. Through such activities and travels he has built up a small network of

driftwood gatherers which provides much needed cash to impoverished provincial villages. For every kilo of driftwood that James buys he plants a seedling on denuded hills in North and South Cebu. He has started a program called 80,000 trees

James started to design driftwood furniture in the early 2000’s and it was while playing with the various natural forms that he was drawn to experiment with his first driftwood animal sculpture. His large supply of wood has made it possible for him to find the pieces which most lend themselves to the natural form and shape needed to give his animals the movement and reality he strives to obtain in every piece he creates.

James has amassed an extensive collection of driftwood, varying in size and form from small pieces to large natural sculptures, each piece hewn by natural forces into a myriad of individual shapes. The wood is found along the shorelines and riverbeds of the archipelago and is from a number of indigenous species, all dense enough to withstand years and years of exposure to both extreme tropical climate and intense frosts.

Escondido Police Warn of Lottery Scam

Escondido Police are asking the public to be aware of a “lottery” scam which is occurring in the City of Escondido. The target area for the scam is currently E Valley Pkwy east of Ash St but please be aware the suspects in this case may easily move to a new area. Escondido Police are currently investigating several similar cases.

The scam works as follows: The victim is approached by a suspect, usually female and fluent in Spanish. The suspect

Local News

claims to need help cashing a winning lottery ticket and needs money to pay taxes and fees. At some point during the contact a second suspect, usually male, approaches and offers to help. The male will contact a third accomplice on speaker phone who claims to be a lottery official and verifies that the ticket is a winner for millions and that the taxes and fees need to be paid for them to release the money.

The suspects then convince the victim to withdraw a large amount of money from the bank and give it to them with the promise that they will repay the victim four to five times their investment. After the victim gives the suspects their money, they disappear leaving the victim with no money and very little identification of the suspects. If you are approached by anyone offering this type of scam, please do not try to “play along”. Tell them you are not interested in helping them and contact the Escondido Police Department or your local agency immediately. Try to provide a good physical description and any vehicle information if you see one. If the crime is in progress or has just occurred, call 911 immedi-

Dear Mr. Davis...

It is soooo refreshing to see a letter {July 3rd issue} supporting ECCHO & its efforts to save/restore the Escondido Country Club from one who doesn't even live on the grounds adjacent to the golf course ... a big THANK YOU for telling it like it is! We know the the U-T is not supportive; Why? Think about it! Try to get a letter like the Ghandhi letter published in the U-T! To maybe misquote; "We have met the enemy and they are ours!'" FDR stated 'War is hell!" WWII proved him right! But Germany. Has to be one of her more enjoyable writing assignments. ••••• Evelyn and I took our two pups, Trixie and Cindi, to the Westside Cafe for a Sunday morning breakfast on the patio. (Westside Cafe is pet friendly; they even provide a water bowl for the pups.) One of our pups, Trixie, has a dual personality. Reason? I call her Trixie, Evelyn calls her Amber. She answers to both names. We had the best bargain breakfast in North County. Early Bird Special is only $3.99 for two pancakes or waffle, egg, and bacon. Have not found a better price anywhere and the food is superb!

As a retired engineer once handling complex financial contracts, I know a bit about cost control. Now a senior, I've lived here for over 40 years, and have never seen such outrageous increases in my water bill.

From July of last year to this, same water usage, one man in a 4 bedroom house, my water bill jumped from $61.13 to 74.30, an inflation rate of 21.54%. How about a discount for seniors living alone?

You folks think to bamboozle the public by eliminating frugal discounts, and decreasing a few pennies on Tier 1 costs. Well we're wise to your sneaky manipulations. We know water costs are going up, so why not be honest and raise the Tier rates. It makes you look like typical

Immigration Child Crisis

This crisis of immigration children smells of well-orchestrated political maneuvering and force to get immigration reform. Over 50,000 children don’t suddenly decide to rush over the border at once and the families of these children wouldn’t send them without promises of safety, amnesty, and reuniting having been made. So let’s detain and question the accompanying adults. Let’s investigate this nightmare and prosecute the insti-

gators. It is unconscionable to use these people in this way!

But while we are doing that, let’s put the National Guard on the border to stop the influx. Send harbor patrol boats to speed the swimmers right back to Mexico. When these people start piling up in Mexico, the word will travel fast, that the promise was a lie, that the law loop hole is about to be closed, and that the route is blocked. Then, let’s get serious about immigration and guest reform. We need a guest worker program with picture and fingerprint ID, guest worker driver’s training and licensing, and yearly check in. Deportation and no future visas if non-compliant. Pay for your children’s schooling. Let’s define “citizen” rights and require ID proof (birth or naturalization certificates) to obtain them. School attendance, welfare benefits, social security, medicare, Obamacare, voting, etc. Let’s change birth rights to those born of one or more American citizen (by birth or naturalized). Let’s stop debating it and bite the bullet. /s/Barbara Saad Escondido

On Friday, July 11th, the Escondido Police Department 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. 5 vehicles were released to the owner or a designated driver. During the checkpoint, 7 vehicles were impounded. Following are other results from this event: ¬ 887 vehicles drove through the checkpoint. ¬ 628 vehicles were screened in primary. ¬ 3 FST’s were conducted, resulting in 2 DUI arrests (and 1 passenger arrested for public intoxication) ¬ 44 vehicles were sent to secondary screening (drivers who could not produce a driver’s license or who were suspected of being under the influence of alcohol or drugs)

¬ 15 total citations were issued during the checkpoint. (4 for suspended license and 5 for unlicensed driver, 7 for no insurance.) ¬ 2 child safety seats were properly installed. ¬ 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.

Time for a National Discussion

The debate over the nation’s border policies continues. In this region, the debate is fueled by the regular arrival of planeloads of illegal immigrants from Texas for processing at facilities in San Diego and Riverside counties. A facility to house these immigrants was recently rejected by Escondido authorities over land-use concerns. In addition, citizens of Murrieta have prevented busloads of newlyarrived illegal immigrants from being unloaded at the Murrieta Border Patrol facility. For decades, the federal government has been largely ignoring the issue of illegal immigration. Through multiple administrations, our borders have not been secured. Now that the issue has reached a crisis stage, the federal government's only solution appears to be to transport the incoming illegal immigrants to places like Escondido

a major force in the field of child abuse prevention. The donations help fund various programs at the San Marcos facility. For more info on houw you can help, go to or visit Annual Fundraiser Held Recently for Bladder Cancer Awareness Program

or Murrieta for rapid release, presumably to other family members. This grotesque dereliction of duty, which diverts Border Patrol agents from essential duties like drug interdiction, is being orchestrated at the highest levels of the federal government. Whatever the reasons for federal inaction may be: indifference, incompetence, political expediency or ideology, the result is the same. The nation’s leaders are derelict in their sworn constitutional duty to protect our citizens, our borders, our national sovereignty.

The underlying humanitarian concerns do not outweigh the negative national consequences resulting from open borders. Failure to secure the border will lead to disaster; just ask the citizens of Iraq or Ukraine about that. I call upon responsible federal authorities to honor their oaths to the Constitution by securing the nation’s borders now.

Escondido Country ClubPast, Present, and Future

Now that the owner and would-be developer of the former Escondido Country Club golf course property has qualified a self-designed Specific Plan for the November ballot, it seems fitting we reexamine the controversy and actions that got us here, as well as look to see what the future might hold.

Few who have been paying attention can forget the pained outcry of residents within the Country Club area when sStuck in the Rough first announced its intention to develop homes on the golf course property. Outrage and high dudgeon was the order of

the day---especially on behalf of the owners whose property abutted said property. Uncertain of their standing (with the Escondido City Council given it’s strong property-rights leanings), the community organized, with the help and eager assistance of lawyers with no lack of familiarity to development and real estate law, not to mention cozy ties with city leadership. Riding in like white knights, attorney Ken Lounsbery and partner Dave Ferguson assured anxious residents they would send the offending outof-town developer packing.

Without question Stuck in the Rough and its principal owner, Michael Schlesinger, made a public relations nightmare out of the whole affair by first assuming that the way things are done in this neck of the woods is just like the way it’s done in his Los Angeles backyard. He is not the first to think that way, nor the first to belatedly discover the error of his thinking.

As residents dug in their heels, refusing to compromise or even meet with Schlesinger, the developer poured gasoline on the flames by first fencing off the property; then second,

Bahadori was transported to Palomar Hospital with significant injuries. The big rig driver, Escondido resident Omero Garcia, and his juvenile passenger, were not injured.

The collision caused large amounts of vehicle fluids to run into the storm drain, resulting in The San Diego County Hazardous Materials Team and City of Escondido Public Works to respond for clean-up. The spill is considered minor. Preliminary investigation indicates the pick-up truck made a left-hand turn eastbound onto W. Valley Pkwy from Home Depot Center against a red light. The big rig was traveling westbound in the #3 lane of Valley Pkwy with a green light and was unable to avoid a collision with the pick-up. Alcohol is not believed to be a factor in this collision. This investigation is ongoing at this time and is being conducted by Officer Stephen Braucht of the Traffic Division. Anyone with information on this case is encouraged to call Officer Braucht.

and was superintendent at West Point when the Civil War broke out. President Lincoln offered him a high leadership position the Union Army, but Robert E. resigned his U.S. commission after 32 years of service and returned to his native Virginia, becoming a rebel Confederate general in the Army of Northern Virginia. “Light Horse” Harry had an illustrious career, not only during the Revolutionary War, but in politics as Governor of Virginia and later as the Virginia Representative to the United States Congress.

‘Light Horse’ Harry Lee of Virginia

Henry Lee III (1756 -- 1818), and his son, Robert E. Lee (1809-1870) were two of America’s greatest military generals, both serving in rebel armies. Henry Lee, affectionately known as “Light-Horse” Harry Lee, started out as a captain in the cavalry of the Continental Army during the Revolutionary War when the 13 colonies “rebelled” against Great Britain.

Robert E. Lee rose to the rank of colonel in the Union Army

But it’s Harry’s son, Robert, who has gone down in history books as one of the most popular of American generals, leading the Confederate Army to multiple victories even though he often was out-manned, outgunned, and woefully underequipped. Harry was the second cousin of Richard Henry Lee, one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence. Upon graduating from college (which is now Princeton University), Harry became an attorney, but when the Revolutionary War began, he joined the Virginia dragoons as

With Just One Election, could a Charter City Council take Full Control?

As a general law city in California, the City Council can put an initiative on the Escondido ballot by a simple majority of 3 votes. Elections Code Section 9222. The legislative body of the city may submit to the voters, without a petition therefor, a proposition for the repeal, amendment, or enactment of any ordinance, to be voted upon at any succeeding regular or special city election, and if the proposition submitted receives a majority of the votes cast on it at the election, the ordinance shall be repealed, amended, or enacted accordingly. A proposition may be submitted, or a special election may be called for the purpose of voting on a proposition, by ordinance or resolution. The election shall be held not less than 88 days after the date of the order of election. Would

Escondido became a Charter City?

Looking at an article by the League of California Cities, Foundational Aspects of Charter Cities, it appears it could. Here’s how. Let’s say the City Council majority (that’s 3 people) decided they were tired of having to put every amendment to the Charter on the ballot. To deal with that, they could amend the charter with one vote of the people and from then on changes to the Charter would require just a majority vote of the Council. Here’s what the League of California Cities says on the subject:

How to Amend/Repeal a Charter If a citizens group, or the city’s governing body, wishes to amend or repeal a portion of the city’s charter, the steps remain largely the same as they are for drafting a charter. There are, however, two notable exceptions. First, the petition calling for the repeal or amendment needs only ten percent of the electorate’s signatures, instead of the previous fifteen percent. See Cal. Elec. Code sections 9215 and 9255. The other notable difference

Expires July 31, 2014

has to do with the charter itself. A city charter may establish different rules for the municipal elections process than those laid out by the state legislature in the Elections Code. If this is the case, the city’s charter will govern the elections process used to appeal or amend the city’s charter, instead of the general laws laid out in the Elections Code.

So, the City Council votes to amend the Charter so later amendments don’t have to go before the voters. Their argument could be, “Why waste money on special elections every time we need to tweak the Charter? You elected us, so trust us to make the right decisions.” If this amendment were put to a vote during a Special Election — when voter turnout is notoriously low (I found an Orange County voting trends report that showed 10-20% voted in special elections vs 50-75% in primary/general elections.) — it could pass with as few as 3,000 votes if total turnout was 10%. Once that measure passed, the vote of 3 Council members could change anything that was in

the Charter and could add anything they wanted. Higher salaries? They could do it. Raise the number of petition signatures necessary to get a local initiative on the ballot? That’s a municipal affair too.

We do not know who will be on our City Council going forward. And I have said repeatedly that Bell, California, was an anomaly. But what I didn’t know until I was Googling around was how Bell became a Charter City: LA Times article July 23, 2010, explains that in 2005 “…the Bell City Council authorized a special election with only one item on the ballot — a measure calling for Bell to convert to a “charter” city. The move was billed as one that would give the city more local control. Too much “local control” — read “City Council control” — is something we should be concerned about. I think the possibility of a Charter being amended so any future changes could be made by a vote of just 3 City Council members is another reason we should all be questioning the need for Escondido to become a Charter City.

Oh, and then there’s the lawsuit. Once the Escondido City Council voted to adopt a dubious ordinance proclaiming the disputed property “open space” —after the fact—the determined Mr. Schlesinger filed. This should really come as no surprise since the council’s proclivity toward actions inviting lawsuits is well catalogued (and brings into question the quality of their legal advice). The vast majority of opinions on the probable outcome of this suit speculate that the city will lose, placing it and its taxpayers in jeopardy.

step of creating a Specific Plan for the site and is now soliciting voter approval of it. His intent is clear. If the plan is approved, sufficient value has been added to justify sale of the property to a builder at a nice profit.

I have seen the plan and, overall I think it’s not too bad. That said, if there were more than one party at the table, it likely could be better—less dense, more compatible with the neighborhood, and so on.

a captain, attached to the 1st Division of the Continental Light Horse cavalry.


In 1778, Lee was promoted from captain to major and given command of a mixed corps of cavalry and infantry. His agile horsemanship in battle earned him the nickname of “Light Horse” Harry. Much to the chagrin of the British, his dragoons and infantry would attack with “hit and run” guerilla tactics. His troops became known as “Lee’s Legion.” For his battle successes, the Congress awarded Harry a “gold medal,” an honor given only to officers of general rank. Then Harry was promoted to lieutenant colonel and sent to South Carolina where they joined up with “The Swamp Fox,” Francis Marion. Harry was present at Yorktown when British General Cornwallis surrendered to George Washington. Harry ended his military career in 1781 as a major general. He left the Army to serve in state and federal government.

When George Washington died in 1799, Harry eulogized the nation’s first President at his funeral attended by 4,000 mourners.

Harry fell upon hard financial times during the Panic of 1796–1797 and served one year in debtors' prison when his son, Robert E., was only two years old. Later, during a brawl, Harry suffered internal injuries as well as head and face wounds. He sailed to the West Indies in an effort to recuperate from his injuries. “Light Horse” Harry Lee died on March 25, 1818, on Cumberland Island, off the coast of Georgia where he was buried with full military honors. In 1913, Harry’s remains were moved to the Lee family crypt on the campus of Washington & Lee University in Lexington, Virginia. History has more or less forgotten “Light Horse” Harry Lee, but he was briefly remembered with the fictional character of “Colonel Burwell” in the recentMel Gibson film, “The Patriot.” The Burwell character is believed to have been inspired by the Revolutionary War exploits of “Light Horse” Harry Lee.

Pastor Sam Brumit Mission 316 Church Our Commitment to Each Other

Patrick Morley tells the following story in his book The Man in the Mirror. “It was a fisherman's paradise; the salmon were knocking each other out trying to get on the hooks of these four anglers. They had flown into a remote Alaskan bay hoping for the best and they had hit the jackpot early the next morning, the four of them gathered their gear into the seaplane and they gunned the engine for what they thought would be a routine takeoff. The pilot realized that one of the plane's pontoons had filled with

water, and shortly after he managed to get the plane into the air, the weight of the water in the one pontoon pulled them into a dangerous turn that resulted in the plane crashing. Miraculously, they managed to survive the crash and managed to crawl out of the plane into the icy waters but they were a long way from shore, and they were swimming away from a current in frigid water; two of the men swam furiously and made some progress toward the shoreline. The other two fishermen, Dr. Phil Littleford and his twelve year-old son, were both adequate swimmers, but twelve year old Mark wasn't strong enough to overcome the power of the current. When the two other men finally made it to shore, they turned around and saw a sight that would mark them for the rest of their lives. Dr. Littleford, fully capable of swimming to shore, chose rather to stay with his son, who couldn't make it and the two of them drifted out into the seas, dying in each other's arms together.” Hopefully I would do the same for my children. I suspect you might too. In a day when family is under attack more than ever before, with God’s help, our dying commitment should be toward each other.

Breathe Easy

Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) is rising almost exponentially in our population today. People with OSA stop breathing repeatedly for 10 seconds or more during sleep. This occurs when the muscles in the back of the throat collapse causing their airways to close and/or your tongue falls back blocking your airway.

Most of us don't even know we have sleep apnea and only after our bed partner observes us do we become aware a problem exists. If alone, we may often wake suddenly gasping or choking for air. Other symptoms of OSA are chronic snoring, excessive fatigue, difficulty concentrating, depression, irritability, headaches, learning difficulties, and

memory problems. Our population is getting heavier and it is well known that there is a direct link between excessive weight gain and the onset and severity of OSA. Other factors that lead to OSA are smoking, drinking alcohol especially before bed, being 40 or older, large neck size, hyperglossia (having a large tongue), and having a small airway.

If unchecked, OSA may cause job impairment and/or falling asleep while driving. It can also lead to stroke, heart disease, hypertension, and diabetes. "Drowsy driving" is a common risk in sleep apnea. Those of us with moderate to severe OSA are 15 times more likely to have a traffic accident. This study also showed that after being treated for sleep apnea with continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) treatment or oral appliances, that number was greatly reduced.

Who you gonna call? Most of us see our dentist more often than our physicians because we have cleanings and exams on a regular basis, usually at least every 6 months. As your dentist, we primarily focus on your oral health and during our examinations we observe your airway openings and

routes of air exchange more closely than a physician might, since their examination must cover the whole body. We also ask certain questions, recommended by the American Sleep Apnea Association, that help us screen for those patients who might have OSA. If your responses along with our examination suggest you have OSA, we'll refer you to your doctor with the recommendation that you have an overnight sleep study done. This study monitors the physiological changes that you go through during sleeping, and detects the level of severity of your OSA, if it exists.

Treatment for OSA can either be done with 1) Using Oral Appliances worn at night to keep your airway open, 2) Using a CPAP machine that

blows air into your airway to keep it open, or 3) Having surgery to remove tonsils, excessive tissue, or shift the lower jaw and tongue forward and open your airway. Currently, a 4th uses orthodontic appliances that reform and expand your oral cavity allowing more air exchange (ie. DNA System).

Many dentists now examine for and treat OSA, and our patients have had great results. One recent case was with a retired engineer who returned saying "Man, I'm glad you solved my tiredness problem. I had been so exhausted and now I feel so much better... you've really made a difference in my life." He also lost 50+ pounds... his wife was elated!
