Volume 47 - No. 32

After shedding much of their luggage, the intrepid travelers are on their way across the plains of Kansas. "Our coach was a swinging and swaying cage of the most sumptuous description - an imposing cradle on wheels. It was drawn by six handsome horses, and by the side of the driver sat the 'conductor,' the legitimate captain of the craft; for it was his business to take charge and care of the mails, baggage, express matter, and passengers. Weonly passengers this trip. We sat on the back seat, inside. About all the rest of the coach was full of mail bags - for we had three days' delayed mail with us. Almost touching our knees, a perpendicular wall of mail matter rose up to the roof. There was a great pile of it strapped on top of the stage, and both the fore and hind boots were full. We had twenty-seven hundred pounds of it aboard, the driver said - 'a little for Brigham, and Carson, and 'Frisco, but the heft of it for the Injuns, which is powerful troublesome 'thout they get plenty truck to read.' But as he just then got up a fearful convulsion of his countenance which was suggestive of a wink being swallowed by an earthquake, we guessed that his remark was intended to be facetious , and to mean that we would unload the most of our mail matter somewhere on the Plains and leave it to the Indians, or whosoever wanted it. by lyle e davis

San Diego County has had its share of stagecoach history . . . but probably none has been recorded by as great a writer as one Samuel Clemens, known to most of us as “Mark Twain.” In the following feature, Twain recounts his journey via stage coach. Lean back, relax, and drift back to a rougher time . . . when life was not quite as easy as we have it. Enjoy the read: In 1861, Mark Twain's (real name Samuel Clemens) brother Orion was named Secretary of Nevada Territory. Twain joined his brother for the trip west.

Confederate Army to do so.) Eleven years later Twain described his journey in the book “Roughing It.” Although its approach is humorous, the book's descriptions are accurate. As Twain notes in his preface, ". . . there is information in the volume; information concerning an interesting episode in the history of the Far West, about which no books have been written by persons who were on the ground in person, and saw the happenings of the time with their own eyes." The movies create an idyllic impression of riding the overland stage - smooth travel in roomy comfort. Twain paints a Obituaries Memorials Area Services Page 12

much different picture - passengers crammed together with mailbags, jostled by every bump, breathing dust, and at the mercy of Mother Nature. However, for its time, the stagecoach offered the latest technology in travel, carrying its careening passengers across the Western Plains at speeds greater than any other transport available. Starting Out Twain begins his journey in St. Joseph, Missouri, the starting point for the overland route to Sacramento, California. Twain and his brother Orion discover that passengers are limited to only 25 pounds of baggage.

We changed horses every ten miles, all day long, and fairly flew over the hard, level road. We jumped out and stretched our legs every time the coach stopped, and so the night found us still vivacious and unfatigued." Traveling

The next day, the stage suffers a breakdown, forcing its passengers to evacuate while repairs are made. The conductor lays the blame for the mishap on the extra weight of too many mailbags. After throwing half the mail onto the prairie, the stage resumes its journey. Orion's large Unabridged Dictionary causes trouble along the way. "Whenever the stage stopped to

change horses, we would wake up, and try to recollect where we were - and succeed - and in a minute or two the stage would be off again, and we likewise. We began to get into country, now, threaded here and there with little streams. These had high, steep banks on each side, and every time we flew down one bank and scrambled up the other, our party inside got mixed somewhat. First we would all lie down in a pile at the forward end of the stage, nearly in a sitting posture, and in a second we would shoot to the other end and stand on our heads. And we would sprawl and kick, too, and ward off ends and corners of mail-bags that came lumbering over us and about us; and as the dust rose from the tumult, we would all sneeze in chorus, and the majority of us would grumble, and probably say some hasty thing, like: 'Take your elbow out of my ribs! Can't you quit crowding?' Every time we avalanched from one end of the stage to the other, the Unabridged Dictionary would come too; and every time it came it damaged somebody. One trip it 'barked' the Secretary's elbow; the next trip it hurt me in the stomach, and the third it tilted Bemis's nose up till he could

look down his nostrils - he said. The pistols and coin soon settled to the bottom, but the pipes, pipe-stems, tobacco, and canteens clattered and floundered after the Dictionary every time it made an assault on us, and aided and abetted the book by spilling tobacco in our eyes, and water down our backs." The Way Station

Each evening, the stage announces its approach to a way station by the driver blowing a bugle. The way station offers sparse comfort.

"The station buildings were long, low huts, made of sun-dried, mud-colored bricks, laid up without mortar (adobes the Spaniards call these bricks, and Americans shorten it to 'dobies.)The roofs, which had no slant to them worth speaking of, were thatched and then sodded or covered with a thick layer of earth, and from this sprang a pretty rank growth of weeds and grass. It was the first time we had ever seen a man's front yard on top of his house. The buildings consisted of barns, stable-room for twelve or fifteen horses, and a hut for an eating room for passengers. This latter had bunks in it for the stationkeeper and a hostler or two. You could rest your elbow on its eaves, and you had to bend in order to get in at

This week, a compendium of wit, wisdom and neat stuff you can tell at parties. Enjoy! 8-Year Olds Write the Best Paper Ever on Grandparents

Grandparents are a lady and a man who have no little children of their own. They like other people’s. A grandfather is a man and a grandmother is a lady!

Grandparents don’t have to do anything except be there when we come to see them. They are so old they sholdn’t play hard or run. It is good if they drive to the shop and give us money. When they take us for walks, they slow down past things like pretty flowers and caterpillars.

They show us and talk to us about the color of the flowers and also whey we shouldn’t step on “cracks.”

They don’t say, “Hurry up.”

They have to answer questions like “Why isn’t God married?” and “How come dogs chase cats?”

When they read to us they don’t skip. They don’t mind if we ask for the same story over again. Everybody should try to have a grandmother, especially if you don’t have television because they are the only grown ups who like to spend time with you.

They know we should have snack-time before bedtime and they say prayers with us every time and kiss us even when we’ve acted bad.

Grandpa is the smartest man on earth! He teaches me good things but I don’t get to see him enough to be as smart as him. It’s funny when they bend over, you hear gas leaks, and they blame the dog. Points to ponder:

There was no stove, but fire-place served all needful purposes. There were no shelves, no cupboards, no closets. In a corner stood an open sack of flour, and nestling against its base were a couple of black and venerable tin coffee-pots, a tin teapot, a little bag of salt, and a side of bacon. By the door of the station keeper's den, outside, was a tin wash-basin, on the ground. Near it was a pail of water and a piece of yellow soap, and from the eves hung a hoary blue woolen shirt, significantly - but this latter was the station-keeper's private towel, and only two persons in all the party might venture to use it - the stage-driver and the conductor."

Do you remember that evening I went to see the banker and the next day he notified you that the loan would be extended?” Henry recalled the visit to the banker and said, "I can forgive you for that.

Martha asked, "Do you remember when you were so sick, but we didn't have the money to pay for the heart surgery you needed? Well, I went to see your doctor one night and, if you recall, he did the surgery at no charge." "I recall that," said Henry. "And you did it to save my life, so of course I can forgive you for that.

San Marcos Lions Club to Sponsor Free Vision Screening for Young Children – On Saturday and Sunday, August 19 and 20, the San Marcos Lions Club will sponsor free vision screenings for children six months to six years of age. The screenings will take place from 10am-4pm, at the Summergrass San Diego, being held at the Antique Gas & Steam Engine Museum, 2040 N. Santa Fe Ave., Vista. “We encourage families to bring their children in for the free vision screening; the actual screening takes less than a minute, but the benefits can last a lifetime,” said Club President Norm McKenzie. “Early screening leads to early detection, which helps ensure that children get the follow-up care they need; we want to make sure that correctible vision problems don’t stand in the way of our children learning and seeing the world clearly.”   More than 12 million school-age children in the United States have some form of vision problem, yet only one in three have received

Officers arrived and conducted an investigation into the person with a weapon. The investigation revealed that a white male adult, 40-50 years old, wearing a blue collared shirt and grey shorts entered the Sears department store and stole a cellular phone from the display case. The suspect was confronted both inside and outside the store by employees. While outside the store the suspect presented a knife to prevent employees from retrieving their property. The suspect fled into a brush area located between the store and Highway 78. With the assistance of the San Diego Sheriff ’s Department helicopter ASTREA, San Diego Sheriff Deputies, and an Oceanside Police Department K9 unit, Officers searched the area but were unsuccessful in locating the suspect.

The Escondido Police Department Traffic Unit conducted a DUI/Drivers License checkpoint on August 11, 2017, at Centre City Parkway and Decatur. Checkpoints are placed in locations that have the greatest opportunity for achieving drunk and drugged driving deterrence and provide the greatest safety for officers and the public.

High Visibility Enforcements, which include DUI/Drivers License checkpoints, have been shown to lower DUI deaths and injuries. A major component of these checkpoints are the deterrent effects it has on those who might drive alcohol or drug impaired, bringing about more awareness and encouraging ever yone to use sober designated drivers.

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. 8 vehicles were released to the owner or a designated driver. During the checkpoint, 2 vehicles were impounded.

Following are additional results from this event: 2333 vehicles drove through the checkpoint. 729 vehicles were screened in primary. 35 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) 13 total citations were issued during the checkpoint. (1 for suspended license and 11 for unlicensed driver, 7 for no insurance) 1 Field sobriety test 1 Arrest for driving under the influence of alcohol DUI educational material was distributed during the c heckpoint Drivers are encouraged to download the Designated Driver VIP, or “DDVIP,” free mobile app for Android or iPhone.

About 99% of you love what we do even when you disagree with our editorial position.

Man About Town

A new look.

You may have noticed something a bit different about this week’s edition of The Paper.

Our cover has changed twice in the past two weeks. Last week we featured a pretty green color on the masthead and bottom band. This week it’s a fire engine red . . . all the better to capture your eye’s attention and direct you to this week’s cover story.

We also made a slight change in our logo. Notice the “The” at a 45 degree angle in “The Paper?” That’s supposed to catch your attention.

It’s important to us to catch your attention as you are a rather important element in the success of The Paper. The more readers we attract and hold, the more our advertisers support us. After all, they want to reach all of you to let you know what swell folks they are.

We try to develop fascinating cover stories for you and to provide you with columnists and other features that meet your needs and expectations. In the process, we also try to elicit a smile, a chuckle, a laugh, a guffaw, and maybe a knee slap or two, with our Chuckles column.

So far, the formula seems to have worked. But times change and the need to change designs also change; plus, we now are competing not only with the Internet, email, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter . . . but some pretty great newspapers who are also in the marketplace. It’s a great business we are in. We are competitors but find ourselves being very good friends with our competition. I’ve even sent business their way. Everything seems to work out pretty well.

Hope you like the new change. We’re gonna stay with it for awhile but we may make subtle changes from time to time. Nothing big. Maybe a font (typeface) change now and then maybe a minor format change. Most of the changes you won’t even notice - but any changes we make are made to make it even easier for you to enjoy the Paper even more. And maybe even come to love us. More than you do, even now.

Studies of California drivers have shown that 30 percent of drivers in fatal crashes had one or more drugs in their systems. A study of active drivers showed more tested positive for drugs that may impair driving (14 percent) than did for alcohol (7.3 percent). Of the drugs, marijuana was most prevalent, at 7.4 percent, slightly more than alcohol.

Drivers caught driving impaired can expect the impact of a DUI arrest to include jail time, fines, fees, DUI classes, license suspension and other expenses that can exceed $10,000 not to mention the embarrassment when friends and family find out.

The Escondido Police Department will be conducting additional DUI/Drivers License Checkpoints on an ongoing basis. The department is committed to lowering deaths and injuries upon our streets and highways.

Stay with us! And to the newbies, Welcome! Proud to have you as part of the family! •••• Like many of you, I’m well into my middle earlies and arthritis has made its presence known to me.

Also, like you, I’ve read and heard of a new technique for treating knee, back and now shoulder arthritic problems. It involves injecting a gel into the affected joints and thus preventing the bone on bone pain many of us are familiar with. Because of so many medical scams out in the marketplace I booked an appointment with Osteo Relief of San Diego, but with some skepticism. Turns out this operation is legit . . . and they have friendly staff. And, what is even more important . . . they’re honest. If they can’t help you, they’ll tell you.

I have an arthritic right shoulder. Used to play tennis five days a week. No longer can serve or hit overheads so that pretty much eliminates my tennis playing. I decided to check this organization out and was quite pleased with what I found.

My consulting doctor was Dr. Cassidy Boelk. He screened me, asked some pertinent questions, took x-rays (no charge) then went over the x-rays with me. He was up front with me and said, “I’m guessing there’s a 50/50 chance this treatment might help you. Your arthritis is severe enough that it might not work. It’s up to you whether you want to invest in a series of five injections to determine if it works or not and knowing in advance there’s a 50% chance of it not working.” I appreciat-

ed his honesty. There are lots of medical clinics that would take the money and run. Not these folks. He told me if I had a less severe case of arthrities that even then the odds were 80% probability of success.

I have a hunch I’m gonna roll the dice and hope for the best, just because I like Dr. Boelk and his honesty, and the staff that assist him. Besides, if it works, maybe I can get back out on the tennis courts again.

If you have arthritis problems with your knees, your shoulder, or your spine, you may want to check with these folks . . . Osteo Relief, 1764 San Diego Avenue (near Old Town), San Diego. Call them at 800.204.5633.

You might tell them I asked you to call. Who knows? You might be able to eliminate your pain and not have to undergo surgery. Amazing what medicine can do these days.

Worth a phone call and a drive down to their offices. Their consultation is absolutely free . . . including x-rays. ••••• And, yes, like you . . . I sneaked a peek at the now forgotten San Diego Chargers who have been renamed the Los Angeles Chargers . . . and I was just as disappointed in this game as most Charger games I’ve seen over the past decade or so.

The first team did just fine . . . but the backups did a great job of playing themselves out of a job . . . and the injury bug has already hit the Chargers, and with regular players. We’ll see.

a journey in those days was no child's play, performed as it was with ox teams, plodding through the dust and heat, climbing mountains and swimming rivers, and not knowing one minute what the next would bring forth.

It was men of the character and disposition to face such dangers accompanied by their heroic wives, mothers and sisters, who severed all connecting them with home and civilization and struck out boldly upon a trackless desert, known to be inhabited by howling wolves and merciless savages, surrounded by dangers, seen and unseen, who I undertake to say, were the chief event to save Oregon to the United States. Hence, I was a pioneer from necessity and in fact, and have ever looked at it without romantic coloring, but as a stern reality to fulfill a duty or destiny. The early pioneers were forced to live mosly on bread and boiled wheat and drink pea coffee. They lived in log cabins, slept on blankets wore moccasins and buckskin pants, and endured many trials and difficulties. I drove the foremost team down from the summit of the Blue Mountains that ever made a track on Umatilla

soil and plowed the first 40 acres of land, if not the first furrow ever plowed in Clackamas County, the winter of 43, seven miles East of Oregon City, for my father, in what has been called the "Arthur Prairie" ever since that date, and lived in Oregon three long and doubtful years before the question of title to Oregon was settled between Great Britain and the United States, June 15, 1846.

I have lived under the provisional government, then the territorial government and have remained in the Willamette valley ever since Oregon was admitted into the sisterhood of states. I hold that I fulfilled my allotted part in the development of the natural resources of the country: but my labor has passed into the hands of others. The lonely hut of the savage is gone and in its place are stately temples; the ravenous beast has fled from the face of man, and the valleys are all golden with ripening grain that awaits the harvester.

The beautiful Willamette runs onward to the Columbia as it did in the days of yore; the broad Columbia rolls its everlasting tide into the Pacific as it did when Bryant sang its praises to the world, but the light canoe is replaced by the mammoth

steamship, and the shriek of the locomotive hourly wakes the sleeping echoes of its pine-fringed shores. David Arthur, Sunday Oregonian, 1889. Gold is what drove many of our pioneer immigrants. Who could resist information like this? Oregon Trail 1849

MINERS DIG OUT GOLD NUGGETS Supplies Fetch High Prices

On the Middle Yuba River, one miner took out 30 pounds of gold in less than a month from a claim only four feet square. Another miner dug up $26,000 worth of ore from his claim on the Stanislaus before it ran dry. At the camp of Volcano, miners found as much as $500 in a single panful of gravel. At Durgan's Flat, near Downieville, four men dug out $12,900 in 11 days from their claim, 60 feet square; in six months it produced $80,000.

Tin Cup Diggings, near Downieville, was so named because three men who mined there made it a rule always to fill a tin cup with gold each day before

Gould Buffum's party of 10 made $150 on the first day, $1,000 in the first week at Weber's Creek. Moving on to the Middle Fork of the American River they made $416 (26 ounces) the first day by the pan, and about $400 the second day by the rocker. The hard-won gold dust did not go far with the cost of supplies being so high. Miners usually took supplies with them, but seldom enough to see them through the season. The transport of three barrels of flour, one barrel of pork and 200 pounds of small stores for about 50 miles cost Gould Buffum's party $300. At the mines flour cost $1.50 pound, pork cost $1 pound and coffee was $1 a pound. Later in the season coffee prices would rise to $3 to $4 a pound. Editor, Historical Gazette Oregon Trail 1856

Stagecoaches . . . Cont. from Page 4 All the papers in the Territories, and in Northern California, are urgent for war. Even the Christian Advocate gave its countenance; and such is the excitement and clamor against the Indians, that Gov. George Curry of Oregon Territory issued a proclamation of war, with a call for Volunteers to take the field immediately. The war spirit, in one form or another, took full possession of the minds of the people. All are absorbed with anticipations of the terrors, the perils and the excitements of savage warfare. When it was known that Gen. Wool, commander of the Pacific forces, demurred, and even refused to participate, the most intense indignation was not only felt but generally expressed. No one seems to have been capable of perceiving such a thing as humanity in the case.

Men are roaming all over the Indian country, abusing and killing the unprotected natives, until terror and natural instinct compel them to unite for mutual aid and protection. For more than 50 years our people had traveled and trafficked all through the Indian country, and had met with general kindness and protection from the Natives. It was not until the Whites had become numerous, and grossly abusive, that the Indians, from necessity, resisted further aggressions.

Gov. Curry, forgetting that he had Constables, and Sheriffs and Citizens to enforce justice and preserve peace, forthwith summons the people to war; and for this effort to "humble" and make Indians "feel our power," millions of dollars are expected and claimed of the General Government.

Gold Brings Immigration Civilization Soon Follows

"Not enough gold has yet been found to repay the labor of procuring it," wrote Major Benjamin Alvord, in 1853. Many prospectors are busy along the waters of Columbia River and on both sides of the Canadian boundary. Reports of gold in Thompson and Fraser rivers, in 1856-57, produced the great "rush" of 1858 to those streams. Gold- seeking thence spread over British Columbia, and a great development of mining took

place in that province in 1860-70. The Idaho mines began activities in 1860, those of John Day and Powder River, in Eastern Oregon, in 1861; those of Montana, in 1862.

It may thus be seen that the search for the precious metal on the Pacific Coast was, and is, a general and wide movement, continuing many years. Oregon's part in this movement was not detached, either in time or method. When Willamette Valley farmers went "stampeding" to the mines of Clearwater, Salmon River, Boise, Owyhee and John Day, thousands of others were going thither also, from many parts of the world, and to Eastern Washington, Montana and British Columbia.

The pioneers of Willamette Valley and Cowlitz and Puget Sound hardly stopped to think of the immensity of the gold movement. And it may be added that it included, also, Nevada and Colorado. In topography, industry, transportation, politics, the results were far-reaching.

Prospectors explored every river, mountain, lake and plain. They toiled along all the streams and over the intervening ridges. They learned the contours, the possible routes of trade, the lands available for tillage. They were the advance agents of the succeeding farmers, merchants and transportation men, the geodetic surveyors of their time. The remote sources of the Rogue, Umpqua, Willamette, Columbia and Fraser rivers were their objectives. Their needs and those of the miners located trade centers and routes of traffic, and caused the growth of cities.

Jacksonville, Scottsburg, Crescent City, Yreka, became the leading supply points in Southern Oregon and Northern California. Portland soon leaped into preeminence, as the metropolis of the region. The population of Portland more than doubled from 1280 in 1857, to 2917 in 1860. It grew to 6000 in 1865 and to 9565 in 1870. The primitive life of the Oregon pioneers prior to the gold movement; the isolation, the remoteness from currents of the world and the Nation; the hardships of family existence; the absence of the comforts of the later day; the lack of markets and the narrow range of industry. The gold movement began the evolution of varied industry, and the later growth of the country.

The value of the gold treasure, extracted from the rocks and earth of the interior region of the Pacific Northwest and Montana, was very large in the then undeveloped condition of this region. In the best years (1861-67), the treasure amounted to

The Legislature should join the 21st century

Processes in the State Capitol are way out of date. During the 7-8 months I spend in Sacramento annually, I use much of my time working and voting on legislation, and meeting with advocacy groups and constituents to discuss legislation. Even so, keeping up with constituent and district concerns isn’t easy when you’re over 500 miles away. Shortening the legislative calendar and using modern technology would let legislators spend more time in their districts meeting constituents, and hearing their concerns. This would save taxpayer dollars and create a smaller carbon footprint through less travel. Unfortunately, California is burdened with archaic legislative procedures that often get in the way. Modern technology such as telecommuting, streamlining meeting efficiencies especially in cases of multiple committee meetings and updating processes, including the use of computers instead of cutand-paste and the reduction of enormous amounts of paper would help. This session I introduced a bill to establish a Legislative

$20,000,000 in gold a year, or $140,000,000 for the period. Before the gold period, which began in 185860, the region was the most remote, and had the scantiest white population of any part of the Nation. News from the Eastern centers was four to six weeks old when it reached Portland, Oregon, by way of the California overland stage route, and thence by ocean steamship northward. The mails came to Portland by sea twice a month. The admission of Oregon as a state, February 14, 1859, became known in Oregon a month afterwards.

The earlier gold activities, that began in California in 1848, stimulated affairs of the North Pacific Coast. The Willamette Valley and Puget Sound then found the markets opening for farm products and lumber. Money became abundant and prices soared. Fertile areas in the interior grew in usefulness and productivity, with mining development. The valley of the Walla Walla was one of the earliest localities in this work, beginning in 1858-59. The livestock industry grew ahead of farming in the interior country. Leslie M. Scott, compiler of Harvey Scott's History of the Oregon Country an

Modernization Working Group, comprised of technology industry experts and members of the Legislature to make recommendations to modernize these processes. Unfortunately, the bill never was referred to committee, leaving the status quo.

It’s surprising how a state that prides itself on being a progressive, family friendly example for the nation can be stuck so far in the past when it comes to the daily operations of its governing body. By combining a part time legislature, which most states have, with modern technology, legislators could spend more time in their districts. This would allow better communication between constituents and their elected representatives, and result in greater citizen involvement in government. This state is too big and diverse to allow archaic procedures developed in the horse-and-buggy era to impede citizen involvement. The California Legislature needs to join the 21st century.

Assemblymember Marie Waldron, R-Escondido, represents the 75th Assembly District in the California Legislature, which includes the communities of Bonsall, Escondido, Fallbrook, Hidden Meadows, Pala, Palomar Mountain, Pauma Valley, Rainbow, San Marcos, Temecula, Valley Center and Vista.

extract by the editor of the Historical Gazette

And so, thanks to the writers of the day, and to the historians who went back and ferreted out all of these priceless gems of antiquity, these looks into the past, we are able to at least get a sense of what our pioneer immigrants experienced . . . how they saw our present day nation to build . . . even though it was then just in its infancy. Perhaps one day in the future some latter day editor will be compiling stories about the archaic and quaint ways we, in this era, lived . . . and wonder at how we survived in such a difficult environment. We think we have it pretty easy . . . perhaps not. Perhaps this is just the beginning of the future.

Alger Hiss: Was He or Wasn’t He a Soviet Spy?

In 1948, Alger Hiss was an American government official accused of being a Soviet spy. In 1950, he was convicted of perjury in connection with this charge. Before he was tried and convicted, he had been involved in the establishment of the United Nations both as a U.S. State Department official and as a U.N. official. On Aug. 3, 1948, Whittaker Chambers, a senior editor at Time Magazine and an admitted former U.S. Communist Party member, testified under subpoena before the House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC) that Hiss had secretly been a Communist while in federal service. Called before HUAC, Hiss categorically denied the charge. During the era of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt's New Deal, Hiss had become a government attorney. In 1933, he served briefly at the Justice Department. Chambers produced new evidence indicating he and Hiss had been involved in espionage, which both men had previously denied under oath to HUAC. A federal grand jury indicted Hiss on two counts of perjury; Chambers admitted to the same offense but, as a cooperating government witness, was never charged. In January 1950, Hiss was found guilty on two counts of perjury and received two concurrent five-year sentences, of which he eventually served three and a half years. Hiss was not charged with being a Communist spy because of the statute of limitations, but continued to maintain his innocence until his death in 1996.

In 1944, Hiss was named Director of the Office of Special Political Affairs, a policy-making entity devoted to planning for post-war international organizations, ultimately the establishment of the United Nations. Near the end of World War II, in February 1945, as a member of a U.S. delegation, Hiss attended the Yalta Conference, where the Big Three -Franklin D. Roosevelt, Joseph Stalin, and Winston Churchill, met. During his 1948 trial, Hiss was accused of espionage by Chambers. It was treason, traditionally punishable by death. The cleverest member of HUAC, California Congressman Richard Nixon had been studying the FBI's files for five months, courtesy of J. Edgar Hoover. Nixon launched his political career in hot pursuit of Hiss and the

alleged secret Communists of the New Deal.

After the dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991, Hiss petitioned for a search for the former Soviet intelligence archives, requesting the release of any files on his case.

Russian archivists responded and in late 1992 reported back they had found no evidence Hiss ever engaged in espionage for the Soviet Union nor that he was a member of the Communist Party. Historian Ronald Radosh reported that while researching Soviet papers in Moscow he had encountered two GRU (a military intelligence unit) files referring to Alger Hiss as "our agent.”

In 2009, Haynes, Klehr, and Alexander Vassiliev published Spies: The Rise and Fall of the KGB in America. The book is based on KGB documents reportedly hand-copied by a former KGB agent during the 1990s. The authors attempted to show definitively that Alger Hiss had, indeed, been a Soviet spy and argue that KGB documents prove not only that Hiss was the elusive codename ALES, but that he also went by the codenames "Jurist" and "Leonard" while working for the GRU. In 1992, records were found in Hungarian Interior Ministry archives in which self-confessed Soviet spy Noel Field named Alger Hiss as a fellow agent. Later, Field would deny Hiss had ever been a spy. To his dying day, Hiss insisted he was innocent of being a spy. So, was he or wasn’t he? Hiss died Nov. 15, 1996, at the age of 92, and took the ultimate truth with him to the grave.

Letters to the Editor Cont. from Page 4

certainly does not meet the smell test, which perhaps explains the secrecy behind its development. The Escondido Library has a tax payer supported budget of a meager 3% of the general fund. By careful attention to fiscal prudence, it has managed to provide personal and professional services to the public, and still end most years with a small surplus ,which is moved into the general fund. This blurs the fine line between fiscal responsibility and milking a cash cow, especially when the reputation and image of a city are at stake. Any outsourcing operation, by promising further savings, can only do so at the expense of reducing vital services, and is a step in the wrong direction.

I have to wonder why this line is being crossed by people who are called Trustees of the Library, since their proposed advice to the city council is tantamount to the betrayal of our trust.

End of the Trail

In reference to the August 03,2017 interest about the Fraser sculpture End of the Trail.

I believe the original sculpture was rescued from a pit in 1919 and placed in Mooney Grove Park, Visalia, Ca. In 1968 the sculpture was donated to the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Solon H. Borglum's The Pioneer was also at Mooney Grove Park.

Very interesting that such a small county park would have that kind of history. I believe my facts are true and relevant to the article. Thanks. /s/Carroll Darr

Editor’s Note: Mr. Darr is mostly correct. In 1968 the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum acquired the plaster piece, had the plaster piece cast in bronze, and returned the cast sculpture to Mooney Grove Park. History

Dear Mr. Davis,

Being much older now, I still think back on the classes I liked the most. History is always at the top of the list. Being taught the exploits of people like Kublai Kahn, Christopher Columbus, Alexander the Great, Buffalo Bill Cody, James Beckwourth, Annie Oakley, Davy Crockett, Jim Bowie, --- wait a minute! Beckwourth? Beckwourth who? Never heard of him. At least not until The Paper started publishing his life story. Wow! Thank you, thank you for making me

look forward to each story about this

Newport was rescued from a puppy mill. Now he’s ready to begin his new life as a pampered California pup. He’s been in foster care where he’s been learning that it’s okay to trust people. Newport was transferred to Rancho Coastal Humane Society through the FOCAS program.

The $145 adoption fee for Newport includes medical exams, vaccinations, neuter, and microchip. For more information call 760-7536413, visit Rancho Coastal Humane Society at 389 Requeza Street in Encinitas, or log on to SDpets.org.

The change will take effect 30 days after a second reading by the City Council.

fantastic human being. Especially in those days, how he managed to accomplish the things he did and still manage to live for 68 years is simply amazing. If they even teach American History anymore, he definitely belongs on the list of people mentioned. /s/Charles J. Buckley San Marcos, CA

Bandit, a 4-year-old Manchester Terrier mix, is looking for a new best friend! He is a very active fellow and would do best as an only dog in the home because he doesn’t always like to share food or toys. That said, if there are children in the home it would best if they are older, as small children may not understand that he is not good at sharing. If there is another dog in the home, a meeting at the Escondido Campus will be required and it would be great if you would talk to our Trainer on how to manage resources in the home so there will be no squabbling. Bandit is available for adoption at the San Diego Humane Society’s Escondido Campus 3450 E Valley Parkway. To learn more about making him part of your family, please call (760) 888-2275.

Defining your worth…

What really defines your worth as a person? I suppose it depends a lot on your world view. In light of mine, here are some things that should NOT determine your worth:

Your Age. We live in a culture that places a high value on youth. Young people are great and older folks have so much to offer too! The workplace should not overlook someone who brings so much maturity, experience and wisdom to the table. Your education. My parents didn’t graduate from High School (until my mom got a GED and later on a nursing degree later in life. My dad became a skilled electrician going to school at night in his fifties. Whether you have a PhD or no “d”… wisdom is something that doesn’t come out of books. Common sense is not that common. Wisdom is key.

Your looks. We love our actors, celebrities and models. Some of the most “beautiful” people are those whose spirit shines through their countenance. Beauty isn’t airbrushed, it starts on the inside.

Your Gender or race. God made us male and female. Equal in Christ. He has placed gifts in men and women to be used to His glory. Also, the color of your skin doesn’t matter. Every nation, every tribe! Again, it’s what’s on the inside.

Your Job. A lot of times the first question people ask is “What do you do?” Shouldn’t it be “Tell me about yourself ?” After all, we are human beings, not

God created us. He knows your imperfections and loves you anyway. He defines your value. The one who died on the cross for you thought you were worth it.

Your bank account. Your net worth doesn’t determine your real worth. In reality, we are all stewards of what we’ve been given and we should not treat the rich differently than the poor. We all matter.

Your temperament. Extroverts are not better than introverts. Those that love routine are needed as those who love spontaneity. We are unique. Be yourself – everyone else is taken.

between them . As he began to eat his few bites of hamburger, the people around them were looking over and whispering. Obviously they were thinking, 'That poor old couple - all they can afford is one meal for the two of them.'

As the man began to eat his fries a young man came to the table and politely offered to buy another meal for the old couple. The old man said, they were just fine - they were used to sharing everything. People closer to the table noticed the little old lady hadn't eaten a bite. She sat there watching her husband eat and occasionally taking turns sipping the drink. Again, the young man came over and begged them to let him buy another meal for them. This time the old woman said 'No, thank you, we are used to sharing everything.'

Finally, as the old man finished and was wiping his face neatly with the napkin, the young man again came over to the little old lady who had yet to eat a single bite of food and asked 'What is it you are waiting for?' She answered --’THE TEETH.' When Insults Had Class...

Moonlight’s Sunset Boulevard is a Classic

The Moonlight Summer Season’s third production kicked off August 16 with Sunset Boulevard. The production runs through September 2, and weaves a magnificent tale of faded glory and unfulfilled ambition. Silent movie star, Norma Desmond, longs for a return to the big screen, having been discarded by tinsel town with the advent of “talkies.” The final summer production is In the Heights, from Lin-Manuel Miranda, the creator of the current Broadway hit Hamilton. This production runs September 13-30 and tells the universal story of a vibrant community in New York’s Washington Heights neighborhood.

It’s a community on the brink of change, full of hopes, dreams and pressures, where the biggest struggles can be deciding which traditions you take with you and which ones you leave behind. Arrive early at the Moonlight Amphitheatre and enjoy a delicious dinner with table service before the show on the Moonlight Patio. Beautiful sunset views are guaranteed! The Artisan Café is the on-site restaurant at the Moonlight Amphitheatre and is open for the summer season of musicals. Ticket information is available online at MoonlightStage.com. The Moonlight Amphitheatre is located within Brengle Terrace Park in Vista.

“Cactus Jack” is back

I looked up just in time to see a colorful blur disappear into our rest room here at the store. The familiar odor of tobacco, whisky and sweat hung in the air. Nome was standing at the counter with a disgusted look on her face. “Who the hell was that?” I asked. “Who the hell do you think it was?” she grimaced. By the look on her face and the tone of her voice I knew it had to be Cactus Jack.

“It smelled like Cactus Jack” I said, “but it looked like a parrot, what was he wearing?” SUMMARY OF ORDINANCE ADOPTED Ordinance No. 2017-1447

Before she could answer Jack stepped out of the bathroom snapping up a set of day-glo orange suspenders. Jack is a scoundrel and Nome can’t stand him. He owns “The Rainbow Computer Emporium” in the dry ranch country a mile East of Rainbow. Jack’s usual attire is dirt caked jeans and boots; a cowboy shirt with leather vest and a sweat stained crumpled Stetson. Today in addition to those suspenders, he wore Ho Chi Min sandals, khaki wash pants and a tie-dyed shirt. His scraggly yellowish hair hung out all around a red bandana that covered his head and tied in the back. With his sun blasted face and tobacco stained beard he looked like Willy Nelson on a bad hair day. “Where are you going in that outfit?” I asked with a grin.

“I think you’re right Jack. So why’d you go”

“I figured it’d be like Woodstock and Woodstock was a whole bunch of fun” said Jack with a far off look in his eyes.” “You were at Woodstock?”

“Yep, I was a roadie for the Gypsy Sun and Rainbows Band”

“Wow, that was Jimi Hendriks’ band. So was “impeach Trump” much like Woodstock?

“Nope,” said Jack shaking his head sadly, “them people is just an aimless herd hangin out with no real focus. At Woodstock, we had a common purpose and we spoke as one voice for a whole generation, we changed the world.”

“You mean Woodstock was all about peace, love, anti-establishment, antiwar, and don’t trust anyone over 30, right”? “That ain’t what Woodstock was about,” snarled Jack, “Woodstock was about sex and drugs with background music. Them “impeach Trump” folks got no idea how to throw a good party. That bunch in Hillcrest looked more like the crowd at Wal-Mart the day welfare checks come out.” “Sorry it didn’t work out for you Jack,” I said as Jack headed out the door.

“I ain’t givin up on finding a good party yet. Since I went to all the trouble of diggin out my party duds I’m thinking of headin up to Berkeley for “Earth Day” weekend. Wish me luck.” And I did.

“”I just pulled an all-nighter at the Impeach Trump rally in Hillcrest and I ain’t had time to change my clothes” he puffed. “I’m headin back home to Rainbow and just stopped by to use yer crapper” “Those impeach Trump folks hate greedy capitalists Jack, and you’re the greediest capitalist I know. I’d figure that’s the last place you’d be.”

“I don’t think them folks care nuthin about corporate greed. Dang near every one of em had an i-phone, i-pod or ipad.,” said Jack. “Ain’t Apple the most profitable company in the World?” DEATH NOTICES

URGENCY ORDINANCE ADOPTED

Ordinance No. 2017-1449

AN URGENCY ORDINANCE OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF SAN MARCOS, CALIFORNIA EXTENDING THE EXISTING MORATORIUM ON THE ESTABLISHMENT OF MARIJUANA DISPENSARIES, THE OUTDOOR CULTIVATION AND PROCESSING OF MARIJUANA, THE INDOOR CULTIVATION AND PROCESSING OF MARIJUANA IN EXCESS OF WHAT IS PERMITTED UNDER THE “MEDICINAL AND ADULT-USE CANNABIS REGULATION AND SAFETY ACT”, AND THE USE AND POSSESSION OF MARIJUANA AND MARIJUANA PRODUCTS IN PUBLIC PLACES, PLACES WHERE SMOKING IS PROHIBITED UNDER THE SAN MARCOS MUNICIPAL CODE AND OTHERWISE, AND WITHIN BUILDINGS OWNED, LEASED OR OCCUPIED BY THE CITY WHEREAS, on October 25, 2016, the City Council adopted urgency Ordinance No. 2016-1433 (Initial Ordinance) imposing a temporary moratorium, if Proposition 64, also known as the Control, Regulate and Tax Adult Use of Marijuana Act (AUMA) was approved, on the establishment of marijuana dispensaries, the outdoor cultivation and processing of marijuana, the indoor cultivation and processing of marijuana in excess of what is permitted under the AUMA, and the use and possession of marijuana and marijuana products in public places, places where smoking is prohibited under the San Marcos Municipal Code (SMMC) and otherwise, and on City of San Marcos (City) property; and WHEREAS, on November 8, 2016, California voters approved the AUMA, which took effect on November 9, 2016, to allow persons 21 years of age and older to (i) smoke, ingest or otherwise use nonmedical marijuana and marijuana products; (ii) purchase, possess, transport, obtain or give away without compensation to persons age 21 and older, up to 28.5 grams of marijuana or 8 grams of concentrated marijuana; and (iii) plant, cultivate or process up to six (6) living marijuana plants for personal use; and WHEREAS, on November 15, 2016, the City Council adopted urgency Ordinance No. 2016-1434 (First Extension Ordinance) to extend the temporary moratorium established under the Initial Ordinance for a period of ten (10) months and fifteen (15) days from and after the date the Initial Ordinance would have otherwise expired; and

WHEREAS, on June 27, 2017, the Governor of California signed into law Senate Bill 94, a budget trailer bill known as the Medicinal and Adult-Use Cannabis Regulation and Safety Act (MAUCRSA), which took effect immediately to create a single regulatory system for medical and nonmedical commercial cannabis/marijuana businesses. The MAUCRSA repealed the Medical Cannabis Regulation and Safety Act (MCRSA) adopted in 2015, and incorporated certain provisions from the

MCRSA into the licensing provisions of the AUMA to create one consolidated act known as the MAUCRSA. All references to the AUMA used throughout the moratorium shall hereinafter be referred to in this Second Extension Ordinance as the MAUCRSA; and WHEREAS, the First Extension Ordinance is scheduled to expire on September 30, 2017; and

W H E R E A S , California Government Code (GC) section 65858 authorizes local governments to adopt, after a noticed public hearing, an ordinance to extend an urgency ordinance if the extension ordinance contains legislative findings that there is a current and immediate threat to the public health, safety and/or welfare; and WHEREAS, the purpose of this Second Extension Ordinance is to extend the moratorium established under the Initial Ordinance and extended under the First Extension Ordinance to continue to protect against the current and immediate threats that marijuana operations, activities and uses pose to the public health, safety and welfare as a result of the approval of the MAUCRSA, and to prevent adverse impacts that those operations, activities and uses may have on nearby properties and residents; and

WHEREAS, the MAUCRSA allows local governments to continue prohibiting or regulating commercial operations, activities and uses relating to marijuana, including, but not limited to, prohibiting medical and nonmedical marijuana businesses; enacting and enforcing reasonable regulations relating to the personal cultivation and processing of marijuana indoors, and prohibiting the personal cultivation and processing of marijuana outdoors; and prohibiting the possession, smoking and ingestion of marijuana and marijuana products in public places, places where smoking is prohibited under the SMMC and otherwise, and within buildings owned, leased or occupied by a local government agency, among other places; and WHEREAS, the City currently only prohibits medical marijuana dispensaries, whether fixed or mobile, but does not expressly prohibit or regulate commercial operations of nonmedical marijuana; and

WHEREAS, the City currently prohibits the cultivation and processing of marijuana as a business activity and land use, but does not regulate the personal cultivation and processing of marijuana; and WHEREAS, the City currently prohibits smoking in certain public places, but does not expressly prohibit the possession, smoking and ingestion of marijuana and marijuana products in public places, including within buildings owned, leased or occupied by the City and;

WHEREAS, it is necessary for the City to extend the moratorium on the establishment of marijuana dispensaries, the outdoor cultivation and processing of

• Page 15 • August 17, 2017

marijuana, the indoor cultivation and processing of marijuana in excess of what is permitted under the MAUCRSA, and the use and possession of marijuana and marijuana products in public places to provide additional time for the City to further study the potential impacts that marijuana operations, activities and uses may have on the public health, safety and welfare; research and craft appropriate regulations and possible amendments to the provisions of the San Marcos Municipal Code (SMMC) and the Zoning Ordinance governing marijuana dispensaries, the cultivation and processing of marijuana indoors and outdoors, and the use and possession of marijuana and marijuana products in public places; and to ensure that regulations relating to marijuana operations, activities and uses can be implemented in such a way as to minimize any harmful effects they might have on the City’s residents, as well as nearby businesses and property owners. NOW, THEREFORE, the City Council of the City of San Marcos, California, in accordance with the freedom afforded to charter cities generally, and by the Charter of the City of San Marcos specifically, does ordain as follows: Section 1.R e c i t a l s . The foregoing recitals are true and correct.

Section 2.Findings and Purpose. The adoption of this urgency Ordinance to extend the moratorium on the establishment of marijuana dispensaries, the outdoor cultivation and processing of marijuana, the indoor cultivation and processing of marijuana in excess of what is permitted under the MAUCRSA, and the use and possession of marijuana and marijuana products in public places, places where smoking is prohibited under the SMMC and otherwise, and within buildings owned, leased or occupied by the City, is necessary for the immediate protection of the public health, safety and welfare. Pursuant to Government Code section 65858, the City Council finds and declares that: (a) The United States Supreme Court has continuously found that marijuana, including medical marijuana, violates Federal law under the CSA. In 2001, the Court held in United States v. Oakland Cannabis Buyers Cooperative, et al. that there was no “medical necessity” defense under the CSA, and therefore a medical marijuana dispensary could be enjoined from distribution and manufacturing. In 2005, the Court held in Gonzalez v. Raich that the Commerce Clause authorizes Congress to prohibit the cultivation or use of marijuana for medical purposes permitted by California law. The significance of the Raich decision is that Federal law enforcement agents may continue to enforce Federal drug laws against Californians who cultivate, use or dispense marijuana; and (b) The majority of jurisdictions within the County of San Diego currently prohibit all commercial marijuana activities, including, but not limited to Carlsbad, Chula Vista, Coronado, Del Mar, El Cajon, Encinitas, Escondido, Imperial Beach, National City, Poway, San Diego County, Santee,

Solana Beach and Vista.

(c) Cities that have permitted medical or nonmedical marijuana dispensaries to operate in their jurisdictions, in California and nationally, have reported experiencing an overconcentration of such land uses; armed burglaries, robberies and thefts occurring at the dispensaries; an increase in other criminal activity in the vicinity of these dispensaries; persons under 21 years of age, drug addicts and documented gang members loitering at the dispensaries; dispensary customers using marijuana and then driving under the influence of marijuana; dispensaries selling illegal drugs other than marijuana; dispensaries selling marijuana and marijuana products to persons under 21 years of age; loss of trade for commercial businesses located near dispensaries; excessive energy use; and faulty and dangerous electrical and plumbing problems at the dispensaries; and (d) Many of the violent crimes reported at marijuana dispensaries involve the use of weapons. Since the passage of the AUMA and subsequent adoption of the First Extension Ordinance in November 2016, a number of crimes have been reported armed robberies at marijuana dispensaries throughout the State, including, but not limited to, at dispensaries in Berkeley (6/25/17); Encanto (6/10/17), in which a dispensary employee was tied up during the robbery; Spring Valley (6/6/17); Los Angeles (5/11/17), in which a dispensary security guard shot the robber; Perris (5/1/17); Cathedral City (4/26/17 ); Anaheim (3/27/17), which also caused the Anaheim Police Department to put a lockdown on nearby schools after the suspects fled and could not be found; Bakersfield (2/16/17); Chatsworth (2/11/17), in which a dispensary employee was shot and the dispensary security guard detained by the robbers; and South Los Angeles (11/23/16), in which a dispensary security guard was shot. Additionally, in January, 2017, a person was killed during an armed robbery at a dispensary in Mar Valley; and (e) There has also been a number of crimes reported involving marijuana delivery services, several of which have taken place in San Diego County jurisdictions, since the passage of the AUMA and subsequent adoption of the First Extension Ordinance in November 2016, including, but not limited to, armed robberies of marijuana delivery drivers in La Mesa (6/16/17); Murrieta (3/15/17); Point Loma (2/21/17); Cathedral City (2/6/17); and Carlsbad (2/17).

(f) In the past, a number of medical marijuana dispensaries have attempted to operate in the City in violation of the SMMC and the Zoning Ordinance. The City pursued successful code enforcement actions against those dispensaries. Although a prohibition of medical marijuana dispensaries is already addressed under the SMMC, in the absence of a moratorium, individuals might apply for City permits, licenses or other entitlements to operate nonmedical marijuana dispensaries, and the City would be required to process and issue the requested approvals, unless some clear violation of the SMMC or Zoning Ordinance exists on other grounds; and

(g) On April 29, 2017, employees at an unlicensed marijuana dispensary illegally operating in San Marcos were robbed at gunpoint. The robbery was reported by a witness outside of the dispensary who reported suspicious activity at the dispensary, rather than by the employees of the dispensary. (h) California courts have upheld various local regulations governing or prohibiting marijuana cultivation and processing. In County of Tulare v. Nunes (2013), the Court of Appeal held that the CUA and the MMPA do not require Tulare County to define growing marijuana as an acceptable agricultural use of land. (215 Cal.App.4th 1188). Also in 2013, in Browne v. County of Tehama, the Court of Appeal found the MMPA did not preempt a local ordinance declaring that any cultivation of marijuana was a nuisance that could be abated. (213 Cal.App.4th 704). In Maral v. City of Live Oak, also decided in 2013, the Court of Appeal held that the CUA and the MMPA do not preempt a local agency’s police power to prohibit the cultivation of all marijuana within the jurisdiction. (221 Cal.App.4th 975); and

(i) Several jurisdictions throughout the State have reported adverse effects and nuisance impacts relating to marijuana cultivation and processing, including but not limited to, the strong and potentially noxious odors associated with mature marijuana plants; impacts to the environment, including spraying of chemicals and toxins (i.e. fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides, rodenticides and insecticides) at grow sites and the potential for storm water runoff and groundwater impacts, greenhouse gas emissions, excessive energy use, generator use producing localized noise, irresponsible and significant water use (the California Department of Fish & Wildlife reported that researchers estimate each plant of marijuana consumes six gallons of water each day, which is problematic since California is currently in a multiyear drought), and dangerous fire hazards; damage to buildings surrounding the cultivation area; problems associated with mold, fungus and pests; abandonment of trash and waste once plants are harvested; proximity of children to areas under cultivation; visibility of grows from the public right-ofway; and an increase in crime, including robberies, theft and trespassing; and (j) Since the passage of the AUMA and subsequent adoption of the First Extension Ordinance in November 2016, there has also been a number of fires reported at residences and businesses throughout the State as a result of illegal marijuana growing operations, including an explosion at an apartment building in Carlsbad in November 2016, which was caused by a chemical marijuana extraction process. The explosion caused a fire and blew out all of the windows in the unit. Additionally, in April 2017, approximately 400 marijuana plants where discovered in a commercial building in Garden Grove following an electrical fire caused by an overloaded electrical circuit. According to the Garden Grove Police Department, overloading an electrical circuit is commonly done to fuel high-intensity ultra violet lights needed to

grow marijuana plants, which results in fire hazards.

(k) As an urgency measure to protect and preserve the public health, safety and welfare, California Government Code section 65858 authorizes local governments to extend an interim urgency ordinance prohibiting any operations, activities and uses that the local government is considering, studying or intends to study within a reasonable time; and (l) It is necessary for the City to extend the moratorium prohibiting the establishment of marijuana dispensaries, the outdoor cultivation and processing of marijuana, the indoor cultivation and processing of marijuana in excess of what is permitted under the MAUCRSA, and the use and possession of marijuana and marijuana products in public places, places where smoking is prohibited under the SMMC and otherwise, and within buildings owned, leased or occupied by the City, to provide additional time for the City to further study the potential impacts that these operations, activities and uses may have on the public health, safety and welfare as a result of the MAUCRSA; research and craft appropriate regulations and possible amendments to the provisions of the SMMC and the Zoning Ordinance governing marijuana operations, activities and uses for the City Council to consider; and ensure that regulations relating to marijuana operations, activities and uses can be implemented in such a way as to minimize any harmful effects they might have on the City’s residents, as well as nearby businesses and property owners; and (m) Pursuant to California Business and Professions Code section 26055(h), the Second Extension Ordinance is exempt from the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) Guidelines.

Section 3.Extension of Moratorium. For the reasons described above, the City Council has determined it is necessary to extend urgency Ordinance No. 2016-1434 pursuant to GC section 65858 to continue the moratorium on the establishment of marijuana dispensaries, the outdoor cultivation and processing of marijuana, the indoor cultivation and processing of marijuana in excess of what is permitted under the MAUCRSA, and the use and possession of marijuana and marijuana products in public places, places where smoking is prohibited under the SMMC and otherwise, and within buildings owned, leased or occupied by the City. Any references to marijuana, medical marijuana or nonmedical marijuana in the moratorium shall mean cannabis, medicinal cannabis or nonmedicinal cannabis, respectively, in accordance with the State’s revised definitions and references under the MAUCRSA. Section 4.Consistency with the SMMC. Any provision of the SMMC that is inconsistent with any provision of this urgency Ordinance, to the extent of such inconsistencies and no further, is hereby repealed or modified only to the extent necessary to effectuate the provisions of this urgency
