Things we all thought about when we were younger . . . or, perhaps, even now we think about them. We just don’t do a whole lot about them because . . well, just because. A shame, too. So much can be learned by exploring; by sharing in adventures. Adventure can be a lonely event . . . or it can be done as part of a group.

particularly if we tend to be “an older human,” we tend to avoid the more difficult explorations and adventures. In fact, even the young adventurers, full of vim, vigor and vitality (or as my Norwegian Grandma Tollefson used to say, “wim, wigor undt witality,”) tend to stay put.
We’ve all heard, for example, tales of the great North, the Arctic Circle, the sub-Arctic Circle. The Eskimo, Esquimeaux, the Inuit, the Aleuts, those hardy souls who actually live in the ice cold climate of the Arctic areas.
These tales . . . are they fact or fcation?
Chances are we’d never know were it not for anthropologists and other adventuresome types who venture to don heavy winter clothing and actually journey to the Arctic to study the terrrain, its flora and fauna, its people, and their culture. Not only do they journey to these spots, they actually live there! With the natives! In the cold!
Not too many tourists go to the Arctic. But, thanks to those antropologists we can learn
something of the area and its people . . . and separate fact from legend.
We’ve all heard, for example, that the Eskimo bid farewell to their elders by dressing them up in furs, placing them on an ice floe and shoving them off to meet Eternity. Fact or fiction?
Actually, it’s based on fact.
It’s called senilicide and it means assisting your elders in dying . . even giving them a bit of a

shove out the door.
It is, in fact, one of the most well-known stories: the strange practice that they have adopted when facing death, and old age.
According to the popular conception, Eskimos must work so hard to survive that they simply cannot manage to support adults who are no longer contributing to the well-being of the group.
Thus, when old-age strikes, rather than waiting around as they dwindle toward death, eating food their companions fight to catch and clothing their companions struggle to construct, the elderly Eskimos are taken to sea, and set adrift on a floating iceberg.
Alone on their iceberg, the elderly must inevitably freeze or starve to death, facing their end, uncomfortable, and horrifyingly alone.
However, it is important not to instill modern Western values on the practices of another culture.
To see this as a disgraceful aban-

Golf is a Wonderful Game
A husband and wife are on the 9th green when suddenly she collapses from a heart attack!
"Help me dear," she groans to her husband.
The husband calls 911 on his cell phone, talks for a few minutes, picks up his putter, and lines up his putt.
His wife raises her head off the green and stares at him.
"I'm dying here and you're putting?"
donment of those they should love the most is to fail to understand the dire circumstances which might lead to such a practice, as well as the spiritual understanding that might justify it. As the Eskimos believed that another world awaited their dead, they would not be sending the elderly off to die and disappear, but to move on to the afterlife.
Beliefs aside, it is extremely important to understand how difficult survival was for an Eskimo family, and each person had to put their full attention toward their own survival. Though tasks may be shifted around so that the women accomplished the household tasks for both women and men, and the men hunted for both men and women, the productivity equaled out to just about one person’s daily work to accomplish one person’s daily needs.
Children were seen as an amazing blessing, and thus would be provided for until they could begin to provide for themselves. Thus any surplus food and materials would be expended primarily on children. But even children were not given a free ride; as soon as it was possible,
"Don't worry dear," says the husband calmly, "they found a doctor on the second hole and he's coming to help you.

You really know your way around the course. What's your secret?" Mickelson replied, "The holes are numbered." ••••• A young man and a priest are playing together. At a short par-3 the priest asks, "What are you going to use on this hole, my son?"

young boys and girls were helping to take care of each other, maintain the living area, fashion clothing, and bring in the day’s hunt.
For the old to be sent out to sea could actually be a blessing, a way to gracefully exit without becoming a burden and a point of resentment. In a way, this allowed the elderly to be preserved, in the minds of the living, in a more ideal state— untainted. They would be spared disgraces such as senility and loss of bodily function, and would, in some sense, be granted an opportunity to die without first decaying. So the story goes.
To what extent is this story true?
First of all, it is important to note that the modern Eskimo culture is very different from Eskimo culture before it was affected by modern Western civilization. Most modern Eskimos lead a lifestyle that is not unlike any other group living in a rustic small town.
Modern Eskimo culture has been infiltrated by capitalism, which has allowed Eskimos to purchase goods such as food and

The young man says, "I don't know about you, father, but in my church, when we pray, we keep our head down." ••••• Police are called to an apartment and find a woman holding a bloody 5-iron standing over a lifeless man.
The detective asks, "Ma'am, is that your husband?" "Yes" says the woman.
"Did you hit him with that golf club?"
"Yes, yes, I did." The woman begins to sob, drops the club, and puts her hands on her face. "How many times did you hit him?"
"I don't know --put me down for a five." ••••• A golfer teed up his ball on the first tee, took a mighty swing and hit his ball into a
clothing. Unfortunately, in many areas, Eskimos are having a difficult time adapting their culture to a modern way of life; consequently, there is a high rate of unemployment among modern Eskimos. However, Eskimos no longer live in isolation, so, for better or worse, those Eskimos living below the poverty line receive government pensions and support. Eskimos are no longer in an environment in which their survival is on the line.
Even in the old Eskimo culture, though it was tight, there were usually enough game animals about to provide sufficient food (and materials, such as skin for clothing and shelter) for everyone in the group, including the old. However, the Eskimos were completely dependent upon their environment, and due to various circumstances, they were, occasionally, put under the extreme stress of famine. We’re talking once every several years, here. During such times, the old and infirm were seen as drains on the resources of their community.

Taking out his 3-wood, he took a mighty swing. The ball hit a tree, bounced back, hit him in the forehead and killed him. As he approached the gates of Heaven, St. Peter asked, "Are you a good golfer?"

Some groups of Eskimos, mainly Inuit in northern Alaska, did practice senilicide (the killing of the elderly), as well as infanticide (killing babies, especially with female babies), and even invalidicide (killing the irrecoverably sick or disabled). However, these were not widespread practices, and while adopted under extreme circumstances by some groups, they were seen as grotesque by others.
When senilicide was practiced, they might be thrown into the sea, locked outside to face the cold, buried alive, or starved to death.
There is no evidence to support claims that they were sent to sea on an ice-float, and this seems unlikely, as it would be logistically difficult—imagine trying to pull an existent ice-float in to shore, or to create a new icefloat by cracking it away from the ice on the seaside…without accidentally cracking off the wrong section.
This popular conception probably originated with the popular work of literary fiction, Top of the World (1950), or the 1959
film adaptation, The Savage Innocents.
More often than active senilicide, a practice of passive manslaughter was used. The ‘victim’ might be taken to the wilderness and abandoned, or the whole village might pick up and move while during the night as they slept. This allowed the abandoned person to find their way back to their group, thus proving their continued productivity… though more often than not, they were unable to return. If the group was unexpectedly restored to prosperity, they often returned for their abandoned family members and took them back in since they were again able to accommodate them. Senilicide and abandonment were far less common though, than assisted suicide. During times of famine, an elderly or infirmed member of the group might ask a family member to kill them, as death by unassisted suicide was believed to lead to a less pleasant afterlife than death by even voluntary homicide. Assisted suicide was not reserved just for the elderly; in fact it was acceptable for all aged members of a group to ask to be killed for any number of reasons, including pain, depression,
or grief. And in the Eskimo culture, the person asked to assist was bound to comply with such requests, without expressing any misgivings.
In good times, senilicide was rarely practiced and, when practiced without reason, resulted in social stigmatism of the enactors.
So, the truth behind the popular myth is that the elderly and sick were taken care of if at all possible; when extreme circumstances pressed, some small groups of Eskimos would kill their elderly, though rarely actively, except upon the elder’s request. The idea of the ice-raft is a romantic notion, only thinly based on facts.
Even this rare practice does not exist in modern Eskimo culture, as pressure from missionaries and national governments, as well as improved economic conditions, have eliminated the dire
July 25, 2013 - Page 3
circumstances that might lead to such a practice. The last reported case of senilicide was in 1939.
What about the other legend we’ve heard about? The Eskimo “kiss?” Here, again, there is a factual basis behind this legend.
In modern Western culture, an Eskimo kiss is the act of pressing the tip of one's nose against another's. It is loosely based on a traditional Inuit greeting called a kunik.
A kunik is a form of expressing affection, usually between family members and loved ones, that involves pressing the nose and upper lip against the skin (commonly the cheeks or forehead) and breathing in, causing the loved one's skin or hair to be suctioned against the nose and upper lip. A common misconception is that the practice arose so that Inuit could kiss without their mouths freezing together. In fact, it is a non-erotic form of greeting that serves as an intimate way of greeting one another for people who, when they

City Council Election Districts Panel Named
Last week, three retired Superior Court judges — James Milliken, Patricia Cowett and William Pate — chose the seven-member panel from among 31 applicants who will determine the election districts for Escondido. Four Latinos and three whites were selected Thursday to make up a panel that will draw the boundaries for geographic City Council districts that Escondido must create because of a voting rights lawsuit the city settled this spring.
The commission is set to start holding public hearings in September and create boundaries for four council districts in time for the 2014 election. The mayor will continue to be elected by the entire city.
The City Council must approve the new boundaries or send the commission back to try again.
The appointees are Bill Flores, a retired deputy sher-
iff; John Valdez, a Palomar College Chicano studies professor; Roberto Ramirez, owner of a local mushroom farm; Doris Cruz, a mortgage company employee with a bachelor’s degree in multicultural studies; Jack Anderson, a former assistant city manager; Andrew Carey, executive director of the nonprofit U.S.-Mexico Border Philanthropy Project; and Dana Nuesca, a consultant who also runs a nonprofit that helps exploited women.
Latinos make up 49 percent of the city’s population. The settlement urged that the commission be racially and ethnically diverse. Carlsbad High School Burglary Suspects in Custody

meet, often have little except their nose and eyes exposed.
When early explorers of the Arctic first witnessed this behavior they dubbed it Eskimo kissing. In its western form it consists of two people rubbing

noses together. One of the earliest representations of the Eskimo kiss comes from Robert Flaherty's 1922 film Nanook of the North, considered by many to be the first real documentary or ethnographic film. It is possibly from this source that the non-Inuit/Eskimo public became aware of this convention. But now, you say, tell us about the other legend we’ve heard . . not that we’re personally inter-
ested, you understand, but just out of curiousity . . . what about this supposed custom of an Eskimo giving up his wife to you, a visiting stranger, as a symbol of his friendship and a sign that you are a most welcome guest.
Well . . . here, again, the legend is based on fact. A researcher by name of Stefansson noted that among the Komallik Eskimo "...wives are exchanged but for seldom more than one night at a time, and seldom except upon the two families meeting after a protracted separation. After another separation this may be repeated. This practice seems to be seldom indulged in except by close friends, partners, sort of blood brothers" (Stefansson, 1914, p.164).
It's true Eskimo men sometimes let other men sleep with their wives. But did they offer that privilege to any horny stranger who showed up on the front stoop? Generally not. The lending of wives to perfect strangers happened occasionally in some places, but it was never the widespread custom it has been made out to be. There were several contexts in which a husband would let another man sleep with his wife. The most widespread was ritual
spouse exchange, practiced in one form or another in every region where Eskimos lived, from eastern Greenland to the Bering Sea. This sort of spouse exchange was always associated with a religious purpose, and was always done at the instigation of an angekok (shaman). Often the point was to effect some desired outcome, such as better weather or hunting conditions.
Now we come to the meat of the question: wife-lending, in which the husband let another man sleep with his wife without getting access to the other man's wife in return. The popular conception is that it was a matter of common hospitality to offer this service to any man traveling without his own wife. We have no evidence to show that any Eskimo male was ever expected to offer his wife to a visitor, and nowhere did it happen as a matter of course. Most Eskimo men traveled with their wives so it wouldn't come up very often anyway. Husbands did occasionally volunteer to lend their wives to visitors, but there seems to have been a general aversion to doing so. If, on the other hand, a guest brashly

Valley Kiwanis Club on Tuesday of this week.
Dick is probably one of my favorite speakers and I very much regret he is not still actively pastoring a church. He is retired but still holds his audiences with rapt attention, no matter what the subject of his presentation is.
He does pastor a retirement community in Oceanside (Fair Winds - Ivey Ranch Retirement Community) and Evelyn and I have driven over there on three occasions just to hear him speak and to enjoy his service.
Dick is one of those movie-star handsome lads who not only looks good but speaks very well. He is by far the most popular guest speaker at our Kiwanis club and I commend him to you if you and your organization is looking for a dynamic speaker who always delivers a fascinating program. He can, and will, talk about his service as a police chaplain, as a noted bee-keeper, as a gardener, as a former resident of Israel and

Because the victim did not cooperate, police have no information about the suspect. Police Arrest Stabbing Suspect
A 16-year-old gang member was arrested Friday morning on suspicion of murder in the June 20 stabbing death of another teen in an Oceanside parking lot not far from the city’s pier, police said.
Police booked the 16-year-old into Juvenile Hall, Lt. Aaron Doyle said. His name was not released because he is a juvenile.
The arrest came four weeks and a day after Jorge Basave, 17, was attacked during a brawl at the parking lot on Mission Avenue near North Myers Street. Police responding to a 911 call found Jorge suffering from a stab wound to his chest. He was taken to Tri-City Medical Center in Oceanside, where he died.
Doyle said witnesses reported hearing gang challenges exchanged between two groups before the confrontation escalated into a fight.
Investigators eventually uncov-

Gentle Jeb is an 8-10 year old, neutered German Shepherd I rescued from the deadly Devore Animal Shelter in San Bernadino. He was on death’s doorstep and had run out of time. He was dumped there by his callous owner. He was one of the next to be taken to the euthanasia room. The Puppy Coalition learned of him and coordinated with Coastal German Shepherd Rescue to snatch him out of deadly shelter facility that same morning.
Jeb is one of the sweetest dogs I have had the pleasure of saving and tending to. He has the most appreciative look from any dog I have ever seen. that you know he is being treated far better than he has ever been and he tells you with his eyes that you are a great friend.
Jeb has been staying at the San Marcos Kennels the past several

Nathan is available for adoption from the Escondido Humane Society and is currently living in a private foster home. His adoption fee of $45 includes neuter, microchip and vet exam.

I'm in one heck of a hurry I have two buddies sitting out in my car waiting for us to go play golf, so forget about the anesthetic, I don't have time for the gums to get numb. I just want you to pull the tooth, and be done with it! We have a 10:00 AM tee time at the best golf course in town and it's 9:30 already... I don't have time to wait for the anesthetic to work!'
The dentist thought to himself, "My goodness, this is surely a very brave man asking to have his tooth pulled without using anything to kill the pain." So the dentist asks him, "Which tooth is it sir?"
The man turned to his wife and said, "Open your mouth Honey, and show him.”

Vista • Mayor Judy Ritter
Vista is fortunate to have two Farmers Markets in town open year-round. The Vista's Farmers Market is open every Saturday from 8 am to 1 pm. The market is located at the County Courthouse (North County Regional Center) at the 300 block of South Melrose Drive, just South of Highway 78. The first farmers market in the county, this market has been serving farmers and the community since 1981. The market features 52 farmers, 34 food makers, and 18 artisans who sell a wide variety of local, seasonal, and tasty foods. More information is available on line at vistafarmers-

investigator. When are we, the people, going to see those results?
Escondido is beginning, more and more, to resemble Bell, California, where those in charge decided they could do what they wanted with taxpayer money.
Does the public really believe those raises he gave his management staff were fair? When others were laid off and/or had to waive their raises? Why was that assistant city attorney given a $32,000 raise?
The Main Street Farmers Market in downtown Vista is open Wednesdays from 4 to 8 pm. Stop by on your way home from work and pick up some fresh produce for dinner. The Vista Village Business Association sponsors this market in the historic downtown area (131 S. Indiana Avenue). The market features organic certified fresh produce, seafood, a variety of nuts, honey, arts & crafts, live music and more. Check out the on line walking map and other information at vvba.org/farmersmarket.
Bring your friends and family to these markets and enjoy all that the farmers markets in Vista have to offer.
That Maple Street project was a complete waste of money. That money could better have been used to fix Escondido’s streets.
I hope the city council fires those administrators who act like tyrants. They should not be able to hold office of great trust. /s/Patrick Ontiveros Escondido, CA.

If you don’t have plans for this Saturday, July 27, and you’re an avid art supporter, then this could be for you! From 6:00 – 11:00 PM, the Oceanside Museum of Art will be hosting their largest fundraiser of the year, the Museum Ball.

weeks while we got him vetted and checked out and made sure he is in good health. All his tests say he is perfect. No hip issues or anything. He is good with other dogs and people.
The thing that bothers me the most is when I take him back to the kennel after our hour walks with his partner Cassidy, he just shudders at going back in the kennel. He doesn’t want to get out of the car and today he just kind of laid on my arm and looked directly at me as if to say, “Please let me stay with you. I don’t want to go back there.” He pleads with his eyes. We’ll be walking on paths and investigating bushes and smelling flow-
French Gourmet, and finally guests are invited to dance under the stars to the sounds of The Fabulous Pelicans the rest of the evening. Reservations are $200 per person, but to experience such a glamorous evening and to be able to support art in our community, this event is truly a winwin situation for everyone.

ers and he has a great time. But it has to end and we have to go back.
The people at the kennel treat him and he is a favorite there because he is so nice but he just wants a family and home and not a cage in a kennel 23 hours a day. It breaks my heart when I have to put him back in every night but I have three dogs and a cat at home and we cannot handle a fourth dog. The only thing we can do is try to find him the best home possible as soon as possible. So, if you are looking for a pal and you don’t need an overenergized puppy, Gentle Jeb is a good choice. If you would like to meet Gentle Jeb, call Bruce at 760-612-9156.

Nome and Paul Van Middlesworth thecomputerfactoryltd.com The Computer Factory
At The Computer Factory
Between desktops, notebooks, and tablets, each month we sell twenty to forty new computer systems and process over a hundred work orders for repairs and upgrades. We also test or evaluate another couple dozen PCs at no charge to our customers. In addition, we take in, recondition and sell a dozen or so used desktop and laptop PCs that were traded in on new models and we make ten to twenty “on site” visits to business and home customers needing help with installations or networks.
1995 nearly all PCs were built in America, nearly half by independent builders like ourselves. Today that number is less than 5% and no major brands are made in America. Here in North County we’ve seen dozens of PC companies collapse, large and small. In addition to biggies like PC Club, Datel, Good Guys, PC Warehouse, Comp USA, Circuit City and Quick Micro we’ve watched dozens of small PC stores pop up and down like toilet seats. Yet we’re still here bigger and better than ever. Obviously we’ve done a better job of meeting our customers needs than they did.
Today the “Mom and Pops” are basically gone and retailers like Staples, Best Buy and Fry’s are the only “full service” competition. Fortunately for us, they can’t match our technical expertise or flexibility. Their “cookie cutter” and “one size fits all” approach to merchandising and customer service leaves a fairly large niche for us.
We build all our new desktops and make custom modifications to most of the notebooks and tablets that we sell. When we opened The Computer Factory in
We can do pretty much anything our customers want. Want a brand new PC with Win XP or Windows 7? No problem for us but don’t even bother to ask them. They sell PCs “made in China” with Windows 8. Would you like a special video card, solid-

proper expenditure of taxpayer dollars.
Accountability and education have been two of my priorities while serving in the legislature. This year, I introduced bills on these issues that have received strong bi-partisan support, and have just been sent to the Governor for his signature.
The first bill, SB 581, strengthens accountability related to school bonds passed by local vote. Current law requires the establishment of local bond oversight committees to review bond funds. However, some schools don’t comply with their oversight committee. My bill will require schools to provide information to their oversight committee in response to audit findings, ensuring the
The second bill, SB 540, allows school districts to award Career Technical Education (CTE) certificates to students who complete CTE courses. CTE provides students with the skills necessary to compete in today’s changing economy. By establishing this CTE certificate, California will send a message to our youth and society about the value of CTE coursework in our schools and communities. I am hopeful the Governor will choose to support students and taxpayers and sign these bills.
state drive, two hard drives, two DVDs, extra RAM, Blue Ray, a parallel port, card reader? Would you like to have your old data transferred, family pictures, your old home page, need your printer installed? Would you like to test drive your new PC before you take it home? Need help installing your PC in your home or business network? Pretty much anything our customers need or want, we can do. This month we built a $3500 desktop PC and a $2500 notebook for a web site designer but we also built some Windows XP desktop PCs for less than $500 and sold Windows 8 and Windows 7 notebook PCs for under $600.
We answer questions like “do I really need a new PC or can we make my old one meet my needs for another couple of years?” Or, “what configuration makes the most sense for me?” We don’t need to try to sell you a “stock item” because we can build to your exact specifications. There’s such a huge difference between the way we operate and the way the “corporate” merchandisers operate that it is difficult to comprehend. Corporate stores like Best Buy can stay open for years losing money and providing marginal service. An independent like The Computer Factory won’t last a year if we don’t keep our customers happy.
Bipartisan Support for California Business
I am happy to report that Senate Bill 90, legislation that will have a major impact on California’s economy, recently passed both houses of the Legislature with bipartisan support. SB 90 was subsequently signed into law by Governor Brown on July 11.
An important provision of SB 90 extends tax exemptions statewide for the purchase of manufacturing and biotech equipment. The bill was being debated by my colleagues and I on the Local Government Committee in Senator Mark Wyland represents the response to previous legislapeople of the 38th Senate District, tion abolishing California’s which includes Rancho Bernardo, Enterprise Zones program, Carlsbad, Oceanside, San Marcos, which had just been Escondido, and Vista. approved. That bill included provisions granting tax exemptions for manufacturBecome a Subscriber! Delivered every Thursday to your ing and biotech equipment Mailbox! Just call 760.747.7119 for subscription details. for only 4 ½ years.
I was concerned about the limited time frame for these tax exemptions and suggested that SB 90 should be amended to extend the exemptions for 10 years in order to provide a greater stimulus for the state’s economy. Working closely with my committee colleagues, my suggestion became a point of contention which eventually led to amendments extending the tax exemptions from 4 ½ to 8 years. Those tax exemptions are now law. SB 90 is a $750 million shot of economic adrenalin for California. California will be one of only a handful of states with business incentives promoting both the manufacturing and biotech industries. SB 90 will stimulate employment and manufacturing activity, improve our overall business climate and lead to a stronger economy for all Californians.

asked to borrow the wife, the rules of hospitality might make it hard to refuse. It would usually be considered rude to make the request, however. If the host had more than one wife (roughly one in ten did), he might be more willing to offer one of them to a guest, but that was still not the universal custom. If a traveler was offered his host's wife it was usually implicit that the host would have access to the guest's wife at some time in the future.
Home Maintenance Improvements
I shan’t be traveling way up north to explore the issues however. It is (a) too cold, (b) too far away, (c) Inuit villages are not the most attractive places to visit, let alone live, and (d) I have found very few attractive Eskimo/Inuit/Aleut women.
Also, they eat a lot of seal blubber and that tends to make one fat. They also use their teeth to soften sealskin and other skins to form leather. This has a way of rubbing the teeth down to next to nothing. Not the prettiest smiles in the world. I shall, however, read about it.

Pastor Sam Brumit M316 Church, San Marcos
Enough already! I don’t usually write about racial issues because skin color isn’t important to me. Attitude and ability are. But this time, I need to say something. We may have come from a background where every white did a knee jerk reaction to everything involving a black, but now the black community is doing the same thing. Enough already. The President said he knows
what it feels like to have people lock their car doors when he walked by and I had to think about that. Yes, I have done that, but it wasn’t because the person was black. It was because they had their head down, were wearing low rider pants and a hoody, or had arms covered in tattoos. That made me uncomfortable. Their body language said they didn’t belong there. But when someone walks past me well dressed, smiling and nodding hello, I’m not uncomfortable and color isn’t an issue. While the black community wanted you to see Martin as an innocent 12 year old, the picture of him at 17 gives a far different impression. That picture would have made me nervous. Let the lesson from his death be that attitude, speech, and dress matter more than color. If you want equality walk, dress and act like you belong, because you do.
