Editor’s Note: As promised, we present another in a series of journal entries dictated by James P. Beckwourth, an adventurer, explorer, scout, hunter, trapper, pioneer, emigrant and, for a time, Indian Chief of the Crows.

The narrative is almost amusing in that hardy pioneers did not really talk in such elegant terms. Clearly, T. D. Bonner, who writes this biography, has exercised considerable ‘poetic license’ in describing the adventures in such elegant prose. Here, then, more in the continuing saga describing the trek out West by James P. Beckwourth:

Removal to our Tobacco-ground.— Expedition to the Arrap-a-hos for Horses.—Discovered, and the Party scattered.—Wanderings for fourteen Months.—Return at last amid tremendous Rejoicing.

We left the fort, and proceeded toward our tobacco-ground. We planted the seed, and spent a short time in festivity. It was deemed inexpedient to build a medicine lodge this season, as all the business could be transacted in a temporary one.

Our stock of horses being greatly diminished, we deemed this a fitting time to try and replenish it, and various small parties sallied out for that purpose. I left with only seventeen warriors for the country of the Arrap-a-hos, situated on the headwaters of the Arkansas. On arriving at their village we found a great number of horses, upon which we made a descent; but we were discovered before we could lay our hands on any, and had to scatter in all directions in our effort to escape. One of our party had his leg broken with a rifle ball, but he did not fall into the enemy's hands, as he crawled away and secreted himself. Two months subsequently he found his way home, with his leg nearly healed. He stated that, after receiving his wound, he plunged into the river, which flowed close by, and swam to an island, there concealing himself in a thick brush. The enemy moved away the next day, and he swam back to their campingground, where he found an abundance of meat, which he carried over to his quarters; upon this he fared sumptuously until he was strong enough to walk; then he made his way home.

I saw the village move the next morning, and, gathering four of my scattered companions, I followed the The Paper - 760.747.7119

enemy at a respectful distance until they encamped for the next night. We then made another descent upon their fold, and succeeded in obtaining each man a horse. We saw no more of the remains of our party until we returned to our village upward of a year subsequently. We came to the resolution to quit the Arrap-a-hos, and pay the Snakes a visit. On reaching them we found horses in abundance, and could have levied upon them for any number; but, being at peace with the tribe, we contented ourselves with exchanging our jaded and foot-sore animals for five fresh ones from their drove. Here we dropped an arrow, and they recognized it for a Crow arrow readily; we also put on new moccasins, and left our old ones behind us. When the Snakes fell in with the Crows some time after, they charged them with stealing their horses, which charge the Crows strenuously denied. The Snakes persisted, and, to confirm their accusation, produced the arrow and the abandoned moccasins. This satisfied the Crows that it must be some of the Arrap-a-ho expedition, and hopes of our safety were revived. From the Snakes we passed on to the Flat Head territory, where we found thousands of horses, but felt our-

selves under the same moral restrictions as with the Snakes. Accordingly, we merely exchanged again, and again left five pairs of moccasins. Subsequently they made the same charge against the Crows, and accused them of infringing the treaty. The Crows again pleaded innocence, and again the moccasins convicted them of their guilt. They, however, resorted to diplomatic finesse, and an appeal to arms was averted. Again their hopes were rekindled of seeing us once more. We then took a notion to pay the Coutnees a flying visit, where we made another exchange. We could have taken all the horses we wanted, but, to get home with them, we must have taken a wide circuit, or have passed through the territory of two hostile nations. We next moved to the As-ne-boine River, which empties into Hudson's Bay. Here we borrowed one hundred and fifty head of fine horses from the Blood Indians, and started on our way home. We arrived, without accident, at the Mussel Shell River, within one day's ride of our own people, where we encamped, intending to reach home the next day; but that night the Crows swept away every horse we had, not even leaving us one for our own use. We must have slept very soundly during the night; indeed, we

were all greatly fatigued, for we did not hear a single movement. In getting our horses, they glorified themselves over having made a glorious haul from the Black Feet.

Not liking to be foiled in our resolution to return home with a respectable accompaniment of horses, we retraced our steps to the Asne-boine River, intending to start another drove. On our return we found our friends had left, and had crossed to the other side of the mountain. We followed on, but delayed so long on the western slope, that the heavy snow-storms now falling cut off all possibility of returning home before spring; therefore we built a comfortable lodge in what was called Sweet Mountain, in a cañon, where we could kill a buffalo every day, the skins of which, covered entirely over our lodge, made a very agreeable abode for the winter. We also killed several large wolves, and dressed their skins in the nicest manner. We likewise took three Black Foot scalps. The Indians whose horses we had been in pursuit of, after having roamed about considerably, had gone into winter quarters only twelve or fifteen miles distant; their smoke was visible from our lodge. On the return of spring we visited our neighbors' camp, and selected one hundred and twenty head of

such horses as we thought would stand the journey. We then returned over the mountain, and reached as far as the Judith in safety, which was within three days' ride of the village. We were greatly fatigued, and halted to encamp for the night and rest our jaded horses. Again the Crows stripped us of every horse, leaving us on foot once more. Resolved not to be beat, we determined to try our luck a third time before we returned to our village. I told my four companions that my medicine promised me success, and that when we did eventually get home we should be able to see what amount of affection was felt toward us by our people, by ascertaining how much crying had been done for us.

I had no doubt we had been mourned as dead, for we had been absent above a year. During this time, we subsequently learned, there had been great mourning for us, and many had cut off their hair. My father, however, still persisted that I was alive, and would some day return, and he would allow none of his family to cut off their fingers for me. At the time the Flat Heads went in with their complaint, they were about to elect another chief to fill my place; but when they saw the five pairs of moccasins produced, they knew they must have had Crow wearers, and their hopes were revived of again seeing us, and the election ceremony was postponed. My father would have no steps taken toward

Give Us This Day Our Daily Chuckle This week, a compendium of wit, wisdom and neat stuff you can tell at parties. Enjoy! URGENT CARE

Never thought I'd end up at Urgent Care on a Tuesday afternoon, but there I was. I decided to do something different after Kiwanis thatmorning.

I decided to go horseback riding; something I haven't done in 30+ years. It turned out to be a big mistake! I got on the horse and started out slow but then we went a little faster and before I knew it we were going as fast as the horse could go. I couldn't take the pace and fell off. Even worse, I caught my foot in the stirrup with the horse dragging me. It wouldn't stop, it just kept going around and around in a circle.

filling my vacant place before the erection of the next medicine lodge. He said he did not know where his Calf had rambled, and it was his firm belief that in the course of time he would ramble home again.

When we reached the As-ne-boine for the third time, we found that our friends who had accommodated us with the two previous droves of horses had gone over the mountain, and passed down that river to Fort Row, one of the Hudson's Bay trading-posts. By the appearance of their trail we judged that they had been joined by other villages, probably from the Coutnees and Pa-gans, all on their way to the trading-post for the purchase of their spring supply of goods. We followed their trail for several days, which grew fresher and fresher, until one afternoon we came suddenly upon a horse. We were at that time in thick timber, with a dense growth of underbrush, and thousands of wild pea-vines about. On seeing the horse we halted suddenly. On looking farther around, we discovered horses of all colors and stripes, ring-streaked and speckled. Shortly the sound of voices reached our ears. In an instant we stooped down and crept under the almost impenetrable vines, nor did we venture to move from our hiding-place until night. We could distinctly hear the chatter of men, women, and children around us, and some of the squaws came most dangerously near when gathering fire-wood for their camp-fires. We could occasionally peep out, and we saw in those

glimpses that they had beautiful horses, and, besides, that they were in good traveling condition. We then felt no doubt that the Coutnees were in company, since they always prided themselves in spotted horses, as Jacob of old took pride in spotted cattle. In that encamp-ment it so little entered into their heads to anticipate molestation that they had placed no horse-guards to keep watch.

The noise of the horses in tearing through the pea-vines assisted us materially in our nocturnal enterprise. We selected two hundred and eighty of their largest, strongest, and handsomest cattle, with which we lost no time in making direct for Crow-land; nor did we venture to give rest to their hoofs until a journey, continued through three days and nights, placed what we considered a safe distance between us. We then ventured to encamp for the night, to afford to the poor tired-out animals an opportunity to rest for a while, but starting off at early dawn to preclude all possibility of recapture.

On the fifth day we discovered an Indian a short distance from our trail, who was coming in an oblique direction toward us. He stopped on the hill-side at some little distance off, and motioned for us to approach him. Supposing him to be a Crow, I desired my companions to drive on, while I went to see what he wanted. When I had approached within a few yards of him, he put on an air of surprise, and placed his hand to his shoulder with the intention of draw-

ing his bow. I sprang upon him instantly and cut him down, and despoiled him of his scalp and quiver. When about to leave to overtake my companions, I perceived the distant smoke of a Black Foot village situated immediately in the direction that we were journeying, and it was beyond doubt that the Indian I had just killed was a spy belonging to that village. He must have mistaken us for some of his own tribe, and only discovered his mistake when I approached near enough for him to distinguish my features. My companions returning to me, we altered our course, and passed over a mountain covered with deep snow, so hard, however, that we passed it without losing a horse. This was one of the spurs of the Rocky Mountains, and covered with perpetual snows.

After sixteen days of almost incessant travel day and night, we came in sight of our village just as the sun was sinking behind the distant mountains. We approached within a mile of the village, and encamped under a small hill, as yet unperceived by our people, for the hill in the shelter of which we lay was between ourselves and the village. It was now the latter end of June (I think), in the year 1834. After resting a while, I thought to get some tobacco, to indulge in a smoke before making our grand entreé, at

the same time requesting my companions to keep a sharp look-out, and see that the Crows did not steal our horses again. Finally, three of us entered incog., and smoked with several of the old men, not one of whom recognized us or once thought of us. We passed all through the village, looking leisurely about us; the streets were full of people, yet not one bestowed a thought on us. When it became somewhat late, and the inhabitants had principally retired, I dismissed my two companions to the camp, telling them I would get some tobacco, and rejoin them in a short time. I then entered the lodge of one of my wives, who was asleep in bed. I shook her by the arm, and aroused her. Waking, she inquired, "Who is this in the lodge?" I answered, "It is your husband."

"I never had but one husband," she replied, "and he is dead." "No," said I, "I am he."

"You are not dead, then, as we have believed?"

"No," I said; "I have been wandering a long while, and have only just returned."

"We all mourned you," she continued, "many moons ago, and we all mourn you now every day. We believed that the enemy had killed you."

"No," I said, "I escaped. I have now brought home a large drove of beautiful spotted horses, and if you will do as I wish you, you shall have your choice of the whole drove, and you will become a medicine woman also."

"I will do what you wish me," she replied. "Well, I want you, when you get up in the morning, to request the village to refrain from crying for one sun. Tell them that you dreamed that I came home riding a large

She agreed to do all as I had bidden her; I then left her lodge; but, before quitting the village, I called in at my father's lodge. All was still around, and, entering on tip-toe, I reached down the medicine shield, which no one but his wife or eldest son is privileged to handle, and, opening it, I took out all his medicine tobacco, carrying it back to the camp with me, and then replaced the shield upon its peg. I then returned to our camp, and enjoyed a good smoke with my companions, our spirits waxing elate at the surprise we had in store.

Early the next morning, the woman, true to her word, narrated her dream to the astonished inhabitants, with whatever additions her own fancy suggested. My father and mother listened attentively to her revelation; and, before she had got through with her narrative, she had quite a numerous auditory. We were watching the occurrence from the brow of the hill; and, knowing she would have to rehearse her vision several times before it was generally known throughout the village, we did not hurry to show ourselves.

My father and mother, having heard her through, turned and entered their lodge. Suddenly the medicine shield caught my mother's eye-it had evidently been moved. My father took it down and opened it — the tobacco was gone. This opened the —old gentleman's eyes. "It is well," he said; "my son lives!" and he believed the substance of the dream as fervently as the prophetess who uttered it. The bystanders, seeing his medicine so strong, and he beginning to sing and dance, they all joined in, until the noise of their revelry reached us on our distant eminence.

Now was our time. We mounted our caparisoned steeds, and, forming ourselves in procession, we commenced our grand entreé, singing and shouting at the top of our voices. Our tones are heard, and the villagers gaze around in surprise. "Hark!" they exclaimed; "look yonder! there are five men mounted on large spotted steeds. Who are they?" All was hushed as the grave in the village, each striving to catch the sound of our distant strains. The five horsemen disappeared as if by magic, and reappeared driving a large drove of horses before them of all colors. The horsemen again pause on the summit. "Hark! listen! they sing again! Who can they be?"

Not a soul yet stirred from the village. We drove our horses down toward them, and left them there, while we took a circuit around, displaying our scalps, but still keeping over gunshot distance. The old men came out to us, carrying drums; each of us took one, and then we bounded away to the rear of our horses. We raised a well-known song, and all listened to the tones of the returning Medicine Calf. At length our wives and relatives broke away from the throng, and darted over the plain to meet us. They fairly flew over the intervening space to welcome us in their arms. A tall sister of mine outstripped the rest, and arrived first, and immediately after my little wife was also by my side. After a warm greeting exchanged with these, the warriors came up, and saluted us with a shout that would have aroused Napoleon's Old Guard from their graves. We were lifted from our horses, and almost denuded of our clothing, and carried by the impetuous throng into the village. My father had painted his face into an exact resemblance of Satan, in token of his joy at my happy return. I was kissed and caressed by my mother, sisters, and

Classic Comedy at Welk Resort Theater – “Arsenic and Old Lace” by Joseph Kesselring will be playing at the Welk Resort Theater in Escondido, Thursdays through Sundays, thru August 28th. Tickets are $35. To reserve and order tickets, call 1.888.802.7469 or order online at www.welktheatersandiego.com. Group rates available. “Arsenic and Old Lace is a brilliant combination of black comedy, farce and the macabre,” states director, Randall Hickman. The play revolves around the two Brewster sisters who have a unique hobby: they poison lonely old men with elderberry wine laced with arsenic. When Mortimer, their nephew, finds out about what’s been going on he spends the entire play trying to protect them. ‘Arsenic’ opened on Broadway in 1941 and closed in 1944 after 1444 performances. At the time, it was the longest running play in Broadway history, and now 72 years later it is still one of the most widely produced plays around the world because of its plot, narrow escapes, and vaudevillian comedy.

wives until I fairly gasped for breath.

Any person who has never beheld a real downright rejoicing among savages can form but a faint conception of their unrestrained manifestations; words can convey no adequate idea of it. Being untutored and natural, and not restricted by any considerations of grace or propriety, they abandon themselves to their emotions, and no gesture is too exaggerated, no demonstration too violent for them to resort to. My friend, with many others, had given me up for dead, and had adopted another in my place; so that there were now three of us who all knew one another's secrets. Pine Leaf was overjoyed at my return. She had become confident of my death, and was only waiting to ascertain the nation that had killed me in order to revenge my loss, or be sacrificed to my manes. Couriers were immediately dispatched to the other village to acquaint them with our return, and to invite them to participate in the celebrations of the event. Long Hair returned for answer, "Tell my brother I will fly to see him." They lost six warriors on their way to our village, through carelessly straggling in detached parties, consequently they came to us in mourning for their loss. The two droves of horses which the Crows had released us of were all religiously returned. Those that the captors had given away were promptly delivered up, so that we were now in possession of a very numerous drove. I distributed my share among my relatives, friends, wives, and wives' relatives, until I had only just enough for my own use. I gave my father an elegant steed, the largest in the whole drove. To the heroine I gave a spotted four-year-old, a perfect beauty, one that I had intended for her as we were driving them home. He proved to be a superior

My thoughts on Mark:

I knew Mark Ippolito quite well and greatly admired him. He undertook the care of his grandson when the mother was unable to provide the necessary care. This was late in Mark's life, after he had retired. By all accounts, he did a find job of caring for his grandson and helping him to grow. Many fellow students of the grandson reported how active Mark was in the care of his grandson as well as the other students in the class and school. Former Pop Warner football players spoke of what a great coach and fine man Mark was.

Mark developed dementia late in life . . . it may have deteriorated into the early stages of Alzheimer’s. I last saw Mark a year or two at a Kiwanis Club luncheon. He did not recognize me at first, until I re-introduced myself. At that point in time he didn't recognize a lot of people, some of whom had been colleagues within the department. He was a credit to his family, to himself, and to the Escondido Police Department.

I'm glad I got to know him and share a few hours together. Well earned tributes are pouring in on Facebook. Even though he is not

Letters to the Editor Cont. from Page 4 Semper Fi versus Semper Fidelis. Hell, no!

Once, on our way to Camp Pendleton, we saw a homeless sign in downtown Oceanside that read: "Am hungery. Jest chains for food is welkcomed." Would we all stop and talk to this guy about proper use of grammar? I hope not. If we did that, then I think our life's priorities would be in a pretty sorry state! Anyone reading this would have to agree on that.

Same with this "Semper Fi" homeless sign from a hungry, ex-U.S. Marine who is tired, cold, hungry, and vulnerable. We all read the homeless article by Mr. Friedrich Gomez, and we all understand that Mr. Gomez reported the sign -- exactly as he saw it. Without cleaning up any grammar or proper usage. Yes, "Semper Fi" was in place of "Semper Fidelis," which is Latin for "always faithful," or "always loyal." It is the motto of the United States Marine Corps. It is also a common motto for towns, families, schools, and even French towns that go as far back as 1369 -- which makes the phrase even older than my beloved U.S. Marine Corps.

So, my U. S. Marine buddies and I are sitting around wondering, so what do we do now? Is this letter to the editor encouraging us to seek out and find our black, homeless Marine brother and tell him the pros and cons of Semper Fi versus Semper Fidelis? As I said earlier, we Marines are bigger than that. And by the way, editor of the paper, Mr. Lyle E. Davis, for the record, we love what you're doing! Otherwise, we wouldn't be faithful fans reading your paper every damned Thursday! Great job. Keep it up. And by the way, your writer Friedrich Gomez is brilliant. I'm more than sure you've heard many others say that. We can't all be nuts! From what I've heard, he's a military veteran, and we embrace him as 'family.' --

From the Big, Proud, Rasmussen Family Clan, Montego Avenue, Escondido, CA 92026. Editor, The paper: I enjoyed the article by Frederick Gomez about the panhandler situation in our area and further. I believe he has hit upon a very important topic, one that has needed addressed for some time. I often encounter some of the panhandlers, but also find something almost as bad when I go to the local Walmart. There are gentlemen (?) who have the metal lockbox, asking for donations for the needy, often with a church type greeting, but upon asking , I discover that the phone number listed is from Riverside county. When I ask why they are not begging in their own county, there is no answer. Rather than argue, I have now started giving the answer" I pay by credit card, sorry, no cash". Another item: While getting a snack

at McDonald's, my wife pointed out a panhandler she had seen that morning, with a large roll of cash, about 3" in diameter, ordering his lunch, while talking on his expensive cell phone. Our church pastor once told us to help these out of luck folks by giving them items that would help them, not just allow them to use whatever cash they got for unhealthy items like liquor or drugs. A sandwich bag filled with items like tooth paste, brush, soap, and the like would be far better items for them. Lastly, I am wondering if the requirement for these panhandlers to obtain a county issued "Panhandler's License", which they would display to guarantee their needs, would be appropriate. Yes, it would be copied and duplicated by others, but it would serve as a definite identification card that local police authorities could control the panhandler population.

The first thing I look at when the paper arrives is "Give Us This Day Our Daily Chuckle" (that's where I found the Guinan reference).

Thanks for your hard work; I really enjoy your paper. /s/Donna Primrose

I also like the articles very much. I started reading Lyle's articles a few years ago, and now enjoy Friedrich's articles.

Increasingly, cities around the country are siding with the animal rights movement. More than 175 of them have ordinances that restrict sales of pets from commercial breeders. More than a third of those measures were passed this year.

"The mothers are kept in the cages their entire life," said Steve McKinnon, chief of humane law enforcement at the San Diego Humane Society. "There's no socialization of the puppies. When someone gets a puppy from one of these pet stores, the social skills just aren't there. They'll have behavior problems for the rest of their lives, and maybe health problems as well."

“They Will in a Minute . . .”

I asked Jesus to come into my life as a young boy and have since gone in other directions. But if anyone can make me laugh like this, then I know they have a gift.

cial breeders care for their animals in clean and well-maintained facilities that are overseen by the federal government.

Animal rights activists focus on educating the public about puppy mills, providing documented evidence, including photos and videos that have exposed squalid conditions at some locations licensed and unlicensed.

The Humane Society, at the national and regional levels, works closely with the grassroots animal rights groups like Southern California Companion Animal Defenders.

"No reputable breeder sells animals to pet stores," said Bryan Pease, a local attorney and nationally-known animal rights activist. "It's cruel the way that particularly the mother dogs are treated at these massive facilities that are typically located in the Midwest," he added. "They're just kept in squalid, terribly filthy, cramped conditions. They're just breeding machines."

Dear Editor,

Texas Guinan, whom you referred to as a "19th century businessman," is in fact a woman who had quite a colorful past. Among other things she owned saloons and speakeasies that were frequently raided for breaking Prohibition laws, however none of the charges could be proved and she avoided lengthy time behind bars. From her biography "She was active in vaudeville and theater, and was in many movies (often as the gun-toting hero in silent westerns, more than a match for any man)."

She was born in Waco (hence the "Texas" first name) Texas, the 12th of January, 1884, and given the name Mary Louise Cecilia Guinan. She died on November 5th, 1933, of amoebic dysentery. She greeted her customers when she entered one of her establishments by hollering "Hello Suckers." A quote by her gives a clearer summation of her life: "I like noise, rhinestone heels, customers, plenty of attention and red velvet bathing suits. I smoke like a five-alarm fire and I call every man I don't know Fred, and they love it." She was quite the character. She was many things during her life, but she wasn't a business man.

Healthcare: Sacramento Concerns; Local Impacts

As a member of the Assembly Committee on Health, decisions made have deep impact on the lives of the people I serve. Cost of care, health insurance, formularies, access to new treatments, astounding innovations and even cures are major debates in our committee each week.

My bill, AB 59, is a perfect example, passing the Health Committee last year, the full Assembly in January, and now awaits final Senate approval. AB 59 will extend the January 2017 sunset date for Assisted Outpatient Treatment for the Mentally Ill, ( known as Laura’s Law) by five years. San Diego County, along with 12 other participating California counties will continue to benefit from this important health and public safety legislation.

Another of my bills, AB 1739, allows Medi-Cal primary care doctors to administer allergy blood tests in place of skin prick tests if needed to efficiently aid in allergen diagnosis,

treatments not currently covered for Medi-Cal patients that must be administered by a specialist. Also a member of the Select Committee on Infectious Diseases in High Risk Disadvantaged Communities, I was pleased to co-host a committee hearing at UCSD with Chairman Mike Gipson (DCarson) to solicit input from health care providers on outreach to at-risk communities in our region regarding testing, treatments and health coverage options.

I also participated in an open house at Borrego Health’s new Centro Medico Escondido clinic. Our local clinics do an amazing job of providing affordable, quality care to our underserved community while keeping patients out of expensive hospital emergency rooms. It is an honor to serve you on our Assembly Health committee. As always, the committee’s plate will be full when the new session begins in January!

warhorse, and there were but few among the thousands that we possessed that could distance him with her upon his back. She was very proud of him, and would suffer no one but herself to ride him. It took me a long time to rehearse all our adventures while away. I was required to do it very minutely and circumstantially — even to describe all our camping-grounds, and relate every minute occurrence that transpired during our long pilgrimage.

We had certainly incurred exceeding risk in the route we had traveled; in recurring to it I marveled at our escape. Any five men might start upon such an adventure, and not one party in ten would ever return. I reflected, however, that I was a little more sagacious than the Indians, and that I had my physical faculties as well developed as theirs. I could see fully as quick as they could, and ride as fast, if they undertook to chase me in the mountains.

I now found that I had thousands of friends, whether attracted by my fancy horses or not, and that I was the idol of my proud parents. The mother of Black Panther always lived with my father, and if both survive, I presume she does to this day. I gave him the child when it was quite young, to adopt as his son, in obedience to his reiterated solicitations.

Historically Speaking by Tom Morrow

The Father of Community Organizers

Until presidential candidate Barack Obama was described as a “community organizer,” most Americans had never heard of the term. The man generally considered the founder of this sort of political structuring is Saul David Alinsky.

A native of Chicago, Alinsky was born Jan. 30, 1909. His 1971 book, “Rules for Radicals,” has been more or less a guidebook for improving the living conditions of poor communities across the nation, especially the African-American ghettos of Chicago, Detroit, New York City, and many other so-called trouble spots. Both Obama and current presidential candidate Hillary Clinton have said they admired Alinsky and his teachings. Over some four decades of political organizing, Alinsky received much criticism, but also gained praise from many public figures. His ideas were adapted in the 1960s by some U.S. college students and other young counterculture-era organizers who used them as part of their strategies for organizing on campus and beyond. Time magazine wrote in 1970 that "It is not too much to argue that American democracy is being altered by Alinsky's ideas." In 1966, conservative author/editorWilliam F. Buckley, Jr. said Alinsky was "very close to being an organizational genius."

Beginning in the 1930s, Alinsky organized the Back of the Yards neighborhood in Chicago (made infamous by Upton Sinclair's 1906 novel, “The Jungle,” which described the horrific working conditions in the Union Stock Yards). Alinsky went on to organizea a number of other ghetto areas. He addressed the 1960s generation of radicals, outlining his views on organizing for mass power. In the opening paragraph of his book, Alinsky writes: “What follows is for those who want to change the world from what it is to what they believe it should be. The Prince was written by Machiavelli for the Haves on how to hold power. ‘Rules for Radicals’ is written for the Have-Nots on how to take it away.”

Alinsky did not join political parties. When asked during an interview whether he ever considered becoming a Communist party member, he replied: “Not at any time. I've never joined any organization -- not even the ones

I've organized myself. I prize my own independence too much. And philosophically, I could never accept any rigid dogma or ideology, whether it's Christianity or Marxism…” Alinsky once explained that his reasons for organizing in black communities included: “Negroes were being lynched regularly in the South as the first stirrings of black opposition began to be felt, and many of the white civil rights organizers and labor agitators who had started to work with them were tarred and feathered, castrated -- or killed. Most Southern politicians were members of the Ku Klux Klan and had no compunction about boasting of it.”

Alinsky's tactics were often unorthodox. In “Rules for Radicals” he wrote: “The job of the (community) organizer is to maneuver and bait the establishment so that it will publicly attack him as a 'dangerous enemy.’ The hysterical instant reaction of the establishment [will] not only validate the organizer's credentials of competency but also ensure automatic popular invitation.” His book further states: “Wherever possible, go outside the experience of the enemy” and “Ridicule is man's most potent weapon.” Before he died, Alinsky described his plans for how to begin to organize the white middle class across the United States, and the necessity of that project. He believed "The Silent Majority" was living in frustration and despair, worried about their future, and ripe for a turn to radical social change, to become politically active citizens. He feared the middle class could be driven to a right-wing viewpoint, "making them ripe for the plucking by some guy on horseback promising a return to the vanished verities of yesterday.” His stated motive: "I love this goddamned country, and we're going to take it back." Alinsky died at the age of 63 from a heart attack near his home in Carmel on June 12, 1972. Several prominent American leaders have been influenced by Alinsky's teachings, including Ralph Nader, Cesar Chavez, and Jesse Jackson.

Although Alinsky held little respect for elected officials, he has been described as an influence on several notable politicians in both the Democratic and Republican parties. In 1969, while a political science major at Wellesley College, Hillary Rodham Clinton chose to write her senior thesis on Alinsky's work, with Alinsky himself contributing his own time to help her. Although she defended Alinksy's intentions in her thesis, she was critical of his methods and dogmatism. Years later when she became First Lady, the thesis was not made available to the public by Wellesley at White House request.

In most cases, air conditioning problems stem back to low levels of refrigerant. Unfortunately, replacing the refrigerant will not be enough to fix the problem. If your refrigerant levels are low, we will need to determine why.

If it is because of a leak, we will need to determine where the leak is coming from before we can repair it. If there is no problem with your refrigerant levels, then we will move on to rule out other issues that could be causing your air conditioner to malfunction.

The Donald has a habit of putting his foot in his mouth more often than not and has ample areas that may deserve criticism. This is not one of them.

Passion 4 K.I.D.S. is a family run charity that works hands-on daily with the children it is honored to serve. “It is our joy to put a smile on these children’s faces. The need is so great and our resources so small, however, we want to make a meaningful difference in the lives of these children who are suffering on very deep levels,” says Charles. Charles and his wife, Linda, are asking the community to help support their efforts so more San Diego children can be helped. Tax-deductible contributions can be made by going to www.passion4kids.org. Photo at right: Some of the kids that received free footwear. Have an item for The Social Butterfly? Email it to:

Abra is pet of the week at your Rancho Coastal Humane Society. She’s a 1 year old, 12 pound, Dachshund / Italian Greyhound mix.

Abra will reach out her tiny paws and take hold of your heart. She’s fully grown but still a puppy. Abra and her new owners would benefit from basic obedience classes.

Abra was transferred to RCHS from the El Centro Humane Society through the FOCAS program.

The $145 adoption fee for Abra includes medical exam, vaccinations, spay, and microchip. For more information call 760-753-6413, visit Rancho Coastal Humane Society at 389 Requeza Street in Encinitas, or log on to SDpets.org. Kennels and Cattery open 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. every day but Tuesday.

Christian, a 3-year-old male English Spot rabbit, is looking for a loving home. He is a handsome, active, outgoing boy. His confident attitude can be a little bossy at times, he knows what he likes and he wants things his way. (But he is so charming that you won't mind catering to him).

Pastor Sam Brumit Mission 316, San Marcos Social media is Addicting.

He would be happiest in a roomy x-pen, as cages make him grumpy. Either way, he needs lots of free run time to exercise.

It’s hard to remember a time when I didn’t at least check my status occasionally or take a silly video and upload it. Life was different back then. It seems like a distant memory when I actually hand wrote letters and put them in the mail or gathered the news from a newspaper. It's a lot easier to turn to Netflix and skip network TV.

Christian is available for adoption at San Diego Humane Society’s Escondido Campus at 3450 East Valley Parkway.

It is kinda neat to be able to read a person’s own “magazine” and social media has made everyone a blogger that wants to be. “It’s all good… and in some ways…not.”

Almost every week I see a post that is a variation of “what do you like about me” or “talk about me” or simply “please notice me.” My heart wants to wrap my arms around my digital friends and let them know … you really do matter. God makes it pretty clear what He thinks of us. Our value, self-worth comes ultimately – not from another human being but from a Father who adores and accepts us just the way we are (but too much to leave us there).

The next time you look to FB for some affirmation or are tempted to ask “does anyone notice” rest assured HE does. To that end, I’ll try not to get hung up on how many “likes” come to my post or take it personally when someone defriends me. After all, I am a friend of God. He loves AND likes us. I didn’t discover this on FB, it’s actually in a very old book. And BTW, I still enjoy silly videos of cats that dance, etc.

Chuckles Cont. from Page 9

"Forgive me, Lord," begged Noah, “but things have changed. I needed a building permit. I've been arguing with the boat inspector about the need for a sprinkler system. My neighbors claim that I've violated the neighborhood by-laws by building the ark in my back yard and exceeding the height limitations. We had to go to the local Planning Committee for a decision. Then the local Council and the electric company demanded a shed load of money for the future costs of moving power lines and other overhead obstructions to clear the passage for the ark's move to the sea. I told them that the sea would be coming to us, but they would hear none of it. Getting the wood was another problem. There's a ban on cutting local trees in order to save the Greater Spotted Barn Owl. I tried to convince the environmentalists that I needed the wood to save the owls - but no go! When I started gathering the animals the ASPCA took me to court. They insisted that I was confining wild animals against their will. They argued the accommodations were too restrictive and it was cruel and inhumane to put so many animals in a confined space. Then the Environmental Protection Agency ruled that I couldn't build the ark until they'd conducted an environmental impact study on your proposed flood. I'm still trying to resolve a complaint with the Human Rights Commission on how many minorities I'm supposed to hire for my building crew. The Immigration Dept. is checking the visa status of most of the people who want to work. The trade unions say I can't use my sons. They insist I have to hire only Union workers with ark-building experience. To make matters worse, the IRS seized all my assets, claiming I'm trying to leave the country ille-

gally with endangered species. So, forgive me, Lord, but it would take at least 10 years for me to finish this ark."

Suddenly the skies cleared, the sun began to shine, and a rainbow stretched across the sky. Noah looked up in wonder and asked, “You mean you're not going to destroy the world?"

"No," said the Lord. "The Government beat me to it." ••••• A husband and wife who work for the circus go to an adoption agency. Social workers there raise doubts about the living conditions in a circus, but the couple produces photos of their 50-foot luxury motor home, which is clean and well-maintained and equipped with a beautiful nursery. The social workers also raise concerns about the education a child would receive while in the couple's care. "We've arranged for a full-time tutor who will teach the child all the usual subjects along with French, Mandarin and computer skills." Then the social workers express concern about a child being raised in a circus environment. "Our nanny is a certified expert in pediatric care, welfare and diet."

The social workers are finally satisfied and ask, "What age child are you hoping to adopt?" "It doesn't really matter as long as the kid fits in the cannon."

12th Annual Noche Mexicana

On Sunday, September 11th, we will be kicking off N a t i o n a l Hispanic Heritage Month with the 12th annual Noche Mexicana. This fun event is open to the public and takes place at the Civic Center Plaza, 300 N. Coast Highway, from 1:00 pm to 7:00 pm. The event begins with a presentation by our own Fire Department Color Guard in honor of September 11th National Day of Service and Remembrance. Several activities will take place including performances by Aztec dancers, the Ballet Folklorico Tapatio de Oceanside, Mariachi Juvenil de Chula Vista and other Latino bands and local singers.

Police were called to a day care where a three-year-old was resisting a rest. ••••• Show me a piano falling down a mineshaft and I'll show you A-flat miner. ••••• Little Bruce and Jenny

Little Bruce and Jenny are only 10 years old, but they know they are in love. One day they decide that they want to get married, so Bruce goes to Jenny's father to ask him for her hand. Bruce bravely walks up to him and says, "Mr. Smith, me and Jenny are in love and I want to ask you for her hand in marriage."

Thinking that this was just the cutest thing, Mr. Smith replies, "Well Bruce, you are only 10. Where will you two live?"

Without even taking a moment to think about it, Bruce replies, "In Jenny's room. It's bigger than mine and we can both fit there nicely."

The event will close with a representative from the Mexican Consulate, who will present a special re-enactment of the Grito de Dolores (Cry for Independence). Along with dancing and musical entertainment, there will be a special presentation by Victor Villasenor, exhibitions by SoCal Pro Wrestling and Por Siempre Car Club classic cars, free activities sponsored by the Pubic Library for children, food vendors and artisan, retail and informational booths. This event is sponsored by the Friends of Oceanside Parks/Oceanside NocheMexicana Committee, a group that is dedicated to the betterment of Latino neighborhoods and families. For more information, please call 760435-3057. Mr. Smith says with a huge grin, "Okay, then how will you live? You're not old enough to get a job. You'll need to support Jenny."

Again, Bruce instantly replies, "Our allowance! Jenny makes five bucks a week, and I make 10 bucks a week. That's about 60 bucks a month, so that should do us just fine." Mr. Smith is impressed Bruce has put so much thought into this. "Well Bruce, it seems like you have everything figured out. I just have one more question. What will you do if the two of you should have little children of your own?"

Bruce just shrugs his shoulders and says, "Well, we've been lucky so far." Mr. Smith no longer thinks the little jerk is adorable.

Windows Ten “Free Upgrade” Lives On

Microsoft’s highly publicized “free upgrade to Windows 10” offer” ended on July 29th, the first anniversary of Win10. Getting Win 7/8 users to switch to Win10 is the lynchpin in Microsoft’s post-PC survival strategy. Microsoft concocted the “free Win10 limited time upgrade offer” to seduce Win7/8 users into making the switch. As it became clear that the “free upgrade” was not attracting Win 7/8 users in the numbers anticipated, Microsoft upped the ante by downloading the “upgrade” without user permission and even installing it against the wishes of unwary users. As of July 29th, fewer than 20% of Windows 7/8 users had accepted the upgrade. As of that date Win7

Obituaries Robert J. Brown, 87 Escondido, CA

still ran on 50% of the World’s PCs and Win10 on only 20%. Win8 was tied with XP in market share at 10% each. Over the past year many Win10 “upgraders” found themselves clawing their way back to Win7/8 after the “free upgrade” went wrong. Often what appeared to be a successful upgrade turned sour within weeks as Microsoft began loading Win10 updates that conflicted with user hardware and applications. Business buyers continue to avoid Win10 and Win8 by purchasing PCs with the Professional version of Win7. Since Microsoft is committed to support Win7 through February of 2020 there is little incentive to “upgrade” to Win10.

updates is an option that Win10 users don’t have.

Our recommendation is: if you have Win7 or 8 and like it, don’t upgrade. If you do upgrade, don’t do a “dirty upgrade.” A dirty upgrade is when you “keep personal files and settings.” A clean upgrade is indicated by these two options “keep personal files only” (you will need to reinstall your applications) or “Keep nothing.” (You must reinstall both applications and personal data). The latter two options ensure a trouble free upgrade. If you do want to take the “free” upgrade to Win10 we can help with the second two options

On his Sunday radio show last week, Leo LaPorte, “The Tech Guy,” said it. “For most people a Chromebook is the best choice.” We are beginning to agree with Leo. A $200 to $400 Chromebook seems to be a better choice than a Windows or Apple product for a lot of users. Before you buy your next desktop, notebook or tablet, hop on the Internet and check out these Chromebooks, then let us know what you think.

Microsoft continues the “carrot and stick” approach in its attempt to get Win7/8 users to switch. The “free upgrade” from Win7/8 to Win10 is still “free” and likely always will be. Win10 is far too important to Microsoft to allow the free upgrade to expire. Win7/8 users continue to be harassed with useless updates that can take days to load because Microsoft has slowed its Win7/8 update servers to a crawl. Many users have simply turned off the automatic update feature in the Control Panel in order to avoid Microsoft’s petty and irritating nuisance updates. Turning off
