Volume 43- No. 33

In 1992, my wife Fanny and I retired, sold our home in Connecticut and bought a twenty-seven foot RV (we never had one before) and made like gypsies for five years, traveling around the United States, often camping at state parks. At one of the first state parks The Paper - 760.747.7119

we camped at, Silver Falls State Park in Salem, Oregon, we saw a camp that was built by the CCC for the Y.M.C.A. in 1938, which consisted of a number of log cabins with stone fireplaces. Soon after, in other state parks, we hiked trails developed by the CCC, crossed bridges they had built, and visited museums they had put up. During the five years of RVing,
we camped at many of the hundreds of state parks that had been built by the CCC and learned a great deal about the corps by talking to park rangers and by reading about them at the park information centers.w Much of what we learned I recorded in a daily journal I kept during those years. (A journal is something I always keep whenever my wife and I
take extended trips—or when a subject interests me.)
From its first year, in 1933, until the program ended in 1942, the CCC built 125,000 miles of roads, 48,854 bridges, 204 lodges and museums, brought electricity to millions by stringing 89,000 miles of wire, developed more than 800 state parks, including most of California’s state parks,

installed 5,000 miles of water supply lines, built 420,000 dams to check soil erosion, surveyed and mapped millions of acres of land, and planted 3 billion trees.
The CCC came into being as an act of Congress in 1933, a Congress that had been prompted to enact the law by the newly elected president, Franklin Roosevelt. It was his idea to have a conservation corps during the nation’s greatest economic calamity, the Great Depression, when one out of four men in the U.S. labor force was unemployed. During the nine years of its existence, the CCC had as many as 500,000 men working in over 2,600 camps.
The men, all volunteers, were between the ages of 17 and 28, and they were paid $30 a month, of which the government took out $25 to send to their families, leaving $5 for the volunteers. (You’ll learn more about the $5 they were paid, later in this article.) The men volunteered for a sixmonth period, which could be

extended for up to two years.
While in camps, they lived an Army-type of life. They wore work clothes and on days off, dress uniforms, and Army shoes. They lived in simple, unadorned barracks and slept in bunk beds, arose at dawn to a whistle or bugle and after breakfast, they went to work at about seven and were back in camp late in the afternoon.
U.S. Army officers who ran the camp were obeyed and for the most part, respected. When an officer spoke to a man, the proper answer was not “Yeah,” but “Yes, sir.” Bunks and clothes in lockers had to be arranged just so. Those who forgot or ignored the rules ended up on KP (Kitchen Police) duty—working in the kitchen, peeling potatoes and scouring pots and pans.
There likely was grumbling from some about the discipline but not about the food. It was good and plentiful—certainly, better than most of them were used to.
For breakfast: ham, potatoes, sausage and all the eggs they wanted. For lunch, food was trucked to the work site in big kettles and the men ate from their mess kits. The average Fidelity
A couple was having dinner one evening when the husband reached across the table, took his wife's hand in his and said, "Beth, soon we will be married 30 years, and there's something I have to know. In all of these 30 years, have you ever been unfaithful to me?"
Beth replied, "Well Charles, I have to be honest with you. Yes, I've been unfaithful to you three times during these 30 years, but always for a good reason."
Charles was obviously hurt by his wife's confession, but said, "Beth, I never suspected. Can you tell me what you mean by 'good reasons?' "
Beth said, "The very first time was shortly after we were married, and we were about to lose our little house because we couldn't pay the mortgage. Do you remember that one evening I went to see the banker and the next day he notified you that the loan would be extended?"
Charles recalled the visit to the banker and said, "I can forgive you for that. You saved our home, but what about the second time?"
Beth asked, "And do you remember when you were so sick, but we didn't have the money to pay for the heart sur-
CCC volunteer stayed in for nine months and during his enlistment gained at least 12 pounds.
The men learned to work together—despite their differences in background. For instance, in areas where trees had been cut by lumber companies, CCC reforestation crews took over. One man dug a hole, the next man dropped a seedling in it and the third man closed up the hole.
It was tedious yet productive work. Each crew reforested hundred of acres.
There were only a few pieces of heavy equipment available, but that didn’t stop the CCC from taking on some heavyduty projects. In California, for example, the CCC built a huge amphitheater at Mt. Tamalpais State Park (some l5 miles north of San Francisco). The theater was built of some 5,000 large stones, each weighing about thirty pounds. The CCC also restored one of California’s largest missions, La Purisma, which is in Lompoc (a city near Vandenberg Air Force Base). The mission had been partially destroyed by an earthquake in 1812, and eventually it was gery you needed? Well, I went to see your doctor one night and, if you recall, he did the surgery at no charge."
"I do recall that," says Chuck. "And you did it to save my life, so of course I can forgive you for that. Now tell me about the third time."
"All right," Beth said. "So do you remember when you ran for president of your golf club, and you needed 43 more votes?"

abandoned and fell into disrepair. The restoration by the corps is one of the best restorations ever done in the U.S.
Generally, when the men were back at camp, there was time to relax—to swim, play baseball, play practical jokes—to “short-sheet” one another’s bed. And on weekends, they could go into town. The $5 they were left with each month went a long way then. Movies were only a dime— besides, there were no expenses for room, board or clothing.
In addition to getting clothing, as well as food and a bed (“three hots and a flop”) the men could learn a skill. Each camp had an education program. Some camps had programs that were limited to classes which led towards a high school diploma. Other camps offered classes in typing, shorthand, cooking, land surveying, or auto mechanics.
Almost 60 percent of the enrollees took part in the education program. And the skills they learned stood them to good stead in the job market, once their service with the CCC was over.

The experiences in the CCC had a lasting effect on the men. It also had a lasting effect on the nation. It produced a national treasure of fine parks, bridges, dams and buildings, along with the completion of many conservation and restoration projects.
After five years of traveling to every part of the United States, enjoying its beauty and diversity, we decided to settle down—to our children’s delight. They had worried about us, cautioning us not to drive at night.
We sold our house on wheels and moved to Yucaipa, California, and shortly after we moved there my wife, Fanny, became friends with Helen Ruggles who one day mentioned that her husband Don had been with the CCC. I met Don and we became friends.
He’s deceased now, but when I met him he was in his 80s and, although in frail health, there was nothing wrong with his memory. He remembered and clearly enjoyed talking about his time in the CCC.
I spoke to him at his home in Yucaipa and, as a habit, I took notes, which I added to the journal I had kept on our RV travels. Don was at a CCC camp that was located about 15 miles from Banning, California, just off of presentday Highway 243. The camp was called Vista Grande. Don proudly showed me memorabilia from his days in the “C’s.” “I was 19 years old when I joined the corps,” he said. “It was my first steady job.”
He reached down from his chair to a wooden box that had once held work equipment. “These were work gloves they gave us—they got a lot of use,” he said with a grin. “What we did was a lot of cutting of fire breaks, which were about 75 feet wide—I remember the dust.” He shook his head. “Couldn’t see more than a foot in front of you.”
He reached into the box again and held up a small metal tray. He grinned “This was my mess kit—they fed us pretty good.”
Again he reached into the box and pulled out a folded white card. “This is our Christmas

American Academy of Periodontology, a panel of experts reviewed the existing evidence linking periodontal disease to a person’s health. Their conclusions were published and made public in a special supplement release in April of this year. They concluded the following:

Chances are good that a person prone to gum disease – especially those with moderate to severe periodontitis – may also have systemic medical conditions related to a compromised immune system. At a recent meeting of the European Federation of Periodontology and the
Diabetics - There exists emerging evidence that periodontal disease adversely affects glycemic control (sugar control) in people with Type 2 (adult onset) diabetes and raises blood glucose levels in non-diabetics, as well as promotes the development of new Type 2 diabetics. It also causes complications in both Type 2 and Type 1 (juvenile) diabetics with their medications.
Atherosclerotic Cardiovascular Disease (ACVD) – There is a strong association between periodontal bacteria and ACVD. Studies show the presence of live and viable periodontal bacteria in the lesions causing this disease. Periodontal treatment such as regular cleanings, deep scalings,

And on the other side of the card are the names of all the guys in the company—we had 196 men, plus three Army officers and a sergeant.
See—here’s the camp commander’s name, Captain Vitt. He was an okay guy. But our sergeant, he was tough. He’d blow the whistle and, boy, you should have seen us hop out of those bunks.

Baldy in San Bernardino County. It was a wind-driven fire—eating up acres fast. We stood there a minute at the ridge line, looking down at the fire raging down below us and I got to tell you, we were scared.
But a ranger, he told us it would be all right. Said the fire was further off than it seemed. So, we started cutting fire breaks and worked at it all day. You know, what the government paid us came to $1 a day.” He grinned. “That day we really earned it.” While Don was in the corps, he was taught how to do surveying, and after his six-month enlistment term was over, he left the CCC, and his experience with the CCC helped him to find a job as a surveyor.
Then we scrambled to get showered, shaved and had breakfast. Then trucks would take us to the work sites. In camp, we were under Army control, but once we left camp, the U.S. Forest Service people were our bosses. They were nice guys— patiently showing us what to do.
Today there is a museum dedicated to the Civilian Conservation Corps. It’s located in San Luis Obispo, and it has a large collection of photos and other CCC memorabilia.

Adverse Pregnancy Outcomes – Although more modest than the above, epidemiologic studies show there may be possible associations between maternal periodontitis and low birth weight, pre-term birth and seizures.

one causes the other. What has been shown through several well-designed studies is that periodontitis precedes the other systemic conditions and that the chances are good that periodontal pathogens contribute to the cumulative bacterial burden that subsequently causes these conditions to be expressed.
What This Means? There is ample evidence that utilizing good oral health habits along with regular maintenance visits at your dentist’s office are safe and effective ways to keep the level of bacteria lowered in our bloodstream, thus preventing infection and inflammation that are associated with major health diseases.

Fatal Oceanside Stabbing Earns 11 Year Sentence
Lashauna Shatrell Blanks, 25, of St. Louis, entered a plea of guilty to volunatry manslatughter last month in Vista Superior Court and agreed to the prison term of 11 years. She had initially been charged with murder in the death of her cousin, Jerry Faulkner, 35, of Las Vegas.
The incident occurred Dec. 5, at Faulkner’s mother’s condominium in Oceanside.
Blanks stabbed her cousin about 7:45 p.m. after Blanks and the victim’s girlfriend got into a fistfight during a family gathering, according to testimony presented at her preliminary hearing. Carlsbad Killing Under Investigation
David Diaz, 31, called 911 about 5:45 p.m. Wednesday, August 7th, to report a gunshot victim at a house on Sierra
Morena Avenue near Chestnut Avenue, in Carlsbade. When paramedics arrived, they found a man in his mid-20s dead in an upstairs area of the home. Diaz had minor cuts on his hands.
Diaz is being held without bail at Vista jail on suspicion of murder and resisting arrest. He was to have been arraigned this past Monday.
The victim’s identity has not been released.
No reason for the shooting has been released by police. Serious Injury Crash in San Marcos

Responding to a growing demand for fresh fruit and vegetables and a further demand for locally gown produce, the city of San Marcos officials plan on using vacant city land to develop the subscription farm where customers agree in advance to buy weekly boxes of produce. While a new concept for San Marcos, subscription farming has been a growing trend across the nation as more and more cities use vacant, fallow land to encourage locally grown produce.
Usually, these farms are privately owned and operated in a public/private venture . . . however, San Marcos will be the first where the city will own

Karl Schwarm, San Marcos’ Director of Housing and Neighborhood Services, said he has earmarked five vacant city parcels for the farm(s) and hopes to recruit a farmer to oversee the operation.
Customers agree to pay somewhere between $15 and $30 a week for a box of produce that gets delivered to their home or that they pick up at the farm.
Agricultural leaders point out that the guaranteed income and ability to plant just the right amount reduces waste and makes it a profitable enterprise for the farmer.
Patrons of similar subscription farms in North County report a much fresher, healthier selection of produce. The cost is slightly higher, usually, but the difference in quality and nutrition is often quite obvious. how they kept the town so free of graffiti. The answer was, “you find graffiti in your neighborhood you call a certain phone number. Someone will be out that same day to clean it up. You let these “taggers” get away with it, they’ll just keep doing it. If they know their “art” will be gone within hours, they soon learn interest.”
Well, sir . . . at that moment my thoughts raced back to I knew where Escondido Hizzoner, the Right Honorable Mayor of Escondido, Sam Abed, had begun an aggressive

anti-graffiti campaign. Upon return to North County I checked in with Mayor Sam and asked him how the program was going locally:
Escondido Mayor Sam Abed
“When I had my service station at Midway and E. Valley Parkway, we had a lot of graffitti in the area. I vowed then that when elected I would ask my colleagues to support me on a major push to rid our city of graffitti. They did give their support and we have dramatically reduced graffiti. We have a team which includes the police department, fire department and code enforcement all working together to rid ourselves of this problem and we’ve made great strides, not only
Low back pain can be a crippling experience. You might not be able to play golf, work, or even sit in the car for a 30-minute drive.
And you may not be able to remember the last time you even had a restful night’s sleep.

Do You Have any of the Following Conditions? • Sciatica • Lower Back Pain • Spinal Stenosis • Degenerative disc disease • Herniated or Bulging Discs • Facet Syndrome • Failed Back Surgery
Fortunately, if you are suffering from any of these problems, your pain may be relieved or eliminated by non-surgical spinal decompression therapy.

They are wrong! That’s because there
with graffiti but with code enforcement in general.
We’ve cleaned up a good part of the urban core but we’ve had to cut back a bit because of budget constraints; however, now that we have the budget balanced, we’re going to see if we can find the money to continue this successful program.
We have cut down about 80% of the graffiti with about 20% left to go. Our graffiti tracking program has been very successful; many other cities have adopted it. We track down the taggers, who are often kids, and the, usually kids, parents wind up being financially responsible. The parents then normally lay down the law.
The Couny has adopted our programs and recently received the San Diego County Taxpayer's Aassociation. Award for a program started by us. The county reports a 1.3 million dollar savings within county. We are also getting positive feedback from other cities that adopted our program.
We need to find some more money, though, because, like Vancouver, we want to be 100% graffiti free. We want to send a loud and clear message out . . .. come to Escondido, come to live here, come to do business here .

With reference to San Diego’s Lecherous Mayor, one has to wonder when all these women have filed complaints . . . (14 at last count) how many women (a) did not complain, and (b) how many women responded positively to his lecherous moves? I reckon more than a few. Enough that he continued his "tactics" since they obviously had worked in the past. Had he been shut down 100% of the time he would have figured out all by his lonesome that this was probably not the best way to approach women.

Editor’s Note: Mr. D’Amelio’s story hits home with us.
I, too, have wondered, as Mr. D’Amelio points out, why our government has not developed an aggressive campaign for a nationwide CCC program, or WPA (Works Administration Administration). Makes sense.
Maybe too much sense? Often, when an idea makes too much sense, our governmental leaders and/or their staffs, find a way to kill the idea. Given our economy, one would think now is the time.

to the latest kerfuffle, we had dropped 2200 papers each week at Kaiser San Marcos, distributing them on the tables in 22 separate patient waiting areas. Any surplus papers were picked up the following week and replaced with the current week’s issue. Kaiser wants us to put up one news rack which would accommodate, perhaps, 100 papers. That just is not acceptable to us or our readers/patients.
The problem is only at the San Marcos Kaiser. No other Kaiser has any problem with The Paper; indeed, they all look forward to it. It is apparently the building manager at San Marcos that has created this problem. We deeply regret the inconvenience to the Kaiser patients and hope to resolve the matter one day soon. Mr. Daugherty seems to be a reasonable man. Perhaps we can meet with him and come up with a compromise solution. Thank you for writing.

“Notorious at Ninety” Birthday Celebration – The San Marcos Senior Center will hold its 15th annual “Notorious at Ninety” birthday celebration on Tuesday, August 27, at 10:45am at the Senior Center, 111 Richmar Avenue. Hosted by the “Singing TV Guy” Mike Chamberlain, the event celebrates residents who are ninety years of age or older and provides an opportunity for guests to share stories over lunch while enjoying classic tunes from Frank Sinatra, Neil Diamond and The Beach Boys. With more than 60 attendees over the age of ninety each year, seasoned community members look forward to attending the highly anticipated social to break bread and share life’s favorite memories together. “This event creates an opportunity for us to rejoice and celebrate with our seniors who are more than 90 years old,” said Senior Services Supervisor Georganne Grotey. “Each year, the party is filled with brighteyed, energetic and excited seniors who have incredible histories.”
‘Social Butterfly’ Cont. on Page 10 Just a note on the Eskimo Story.
Although there has been some recreational sharing of wives among the Eskimo, it was usually practiced for more practical reasons. A hunter who was traveling, may have had a pregnant wife who was unable to travel. Since the hunter needed someone along who was able to sew and repair boots, parkas, dog harness etc., the hunter would leave his wife with a friend and the friends wife would travel with him. Having been married to an Eskimo for over 40 years, I can tell you that the practice is frowned upon today! /s/Keith Koontz Alaska

Arthur Smith, former Director of the San Marcos Senior Citizens Club, arrived in California in 1944, after serving heroically during the invasion of Guam in 1944 for the United States Marine Corps. Roughly 20 years later, Smith will be sitting among friends in San Marcos at this birthday event as he and other community members celebrate their ninth decade. “My favorite part about the 90’s party is visiting with the other guests,” said Smith. “It truly is unbelievable to learn about the accomplishments of the people that attend and just have some fun.” Turning ninety this month, Smith’s secret for longevity is simple: be a part of the community, stay active and play a lot of golf. Smith follows his own advice and has served on the Senior Center’s Nutrition Council, was an emcee for the Center’s annual holiday luncheon, and has lent his services on several occasions as a distinguished toastmaster. Other guests include Paul Battenberg who, at 103 years old, was living on his own, driving, taking walks and playing golf up until a few months ago; and Leona Koechert, a long-time Senior Center volunteer also celebrating her 90th birthday this year. All community seniors and their families are encouraged to attend “Notorious at Ninety” and can RSVP by August 23 to Catherine Manis at 760.744.5535. Tickets are free to seniors 90 and above; a $4 suggested donation for individuals between 60 and 89 years of age; and $5 for those below the age of 60.

The Escondido Humane Society received a $25,000 grant from the Ellen Browning Scripps Foundation. The funding will be used to upgrade kennels in the Center's Stray Cat holding areas to provide superior disease control and allow reconfiguration to accommodate a fluctuating cat population. The Scripps Foundation has awarded grant funding for four phases of cate replacements at EHS over the past five years. In that time period, EHS has seen a 24 percent increase in its Feline Live Release Rate, which is an average of 377 more lives that have been saved each year.

nows, catching fish, playing baseball, football, you name it. My family would drive up to Minnesota from Omaha and we'd have a one to two week vacation in Minnesota. Heaven! Bergen, though small, has one of the best meat lockers in the nation. They make, for example, beef jerky that is second to none. I like beef jerky. Doug and I decided to buy some and have it shipped out. Doug said he wanted four lbs. so I, too, ordered four lbs. What I didn't realize is that Doug was ordering a pound for himself and a pound for each of his kids. So now I have waaaaaaaaaaay too much beef jerky for lil ol' me (and Evelyn's not crazy about beef jerky). It's $16 a pound so it ain't cheap, but it sure is good.
I made the mistake of feeding a couple morsels to each of my two pups. Now, whenever I pull a bag of beef jerky out they sit and look at me with those eyes that no one can resist. That's mighty expensive dog food so they ain't gettin' much more. I may have to throw a party at

San Marcos • Mayor Jim Desmond Regional Branding Effort to Help Attract New Jobs
San Marcos is one of five North County cities participating in a branding effort to help solidify the area’s competitive edge and attract new businesses and jobs to the region. The cities of Carlsbad, Escondido, Oceanside and Vista are also collaborating on the effort to bring prosperity to North County. As part of the process, the cities will work over the next few months to identify North County’s economic strengths, superb quality of life, robust educational sys-
tems and other assets in a way that is authentic, succinct and memorable.
From there, an identity will be derived that will help market the region to appropriate economic targets. The development of the brand identity will involve leaders of the region’s strongest industry clusters and will engage them in the area’s economic development future. The final branding and implementation plan will be delivered in spring 2014.

When Your PC Needs Help
Things that go wrong with your PC fit in one of two categories, hardware or software. Among the hardware items that cause problems are components with moving parts that can wear or break like hard drives, DVDs, power supplies and fans. Components without moving parts like video, sound, motherboards, monitors, RAM and CPUs rarely fail. Connectors for speakers, monitors, Internet and devices using card readers, USB, Firewire and HDMI are mechanical interfaces that can break, corrode or otherwise lose connection. Most of these hardware problems are easy to diagnose and repair.
Software problems are the ones we’ll discuss today. Software exists in three basic categories,
Taxpayers Deserve Better
This week, the Senate reconvened from its summer recess. In the month ahead, legislators will make hundreds of final votes on bills that seldom address the most pressing issues facing the state.
Take oversight and accountability, for example. In the past year, nearly 2,500 bills were introduced, of which very few dealt with anything resembling government accountability. We need greater oversight of government programs. I applaud the Center for Investigative Reporting for recently bringing attention to the widespread fraud taking place in California’s drug rehab program. The lack of accountability has allowed
the OS (operating system), device drivers and applications software. The OS runs the basic functions of the PC and provides a stable platform for the drivers and applications software. The device drivers manage a host of functions that are specific to your particular PC and peripherals. These “drivers’ include, among others, the software to run your Internet hardware, printer, USB, video, sound, hard drive, DVD and the different busses or data highways on your motherboard. Applications software is specific to the programs you use i.e. Skype, MS Office (Word, Excell, Power Point) Quickbooks, Family Treemaker are examples. When the OS is corrupt or infected, symptoms can vary widely. Won’t connect to the Internet, slow or won’t open programs, are a couple of the symptoms. The OS can become corrupt through normal operation but the most frequent cause is a malware infection. Malware nearly always targets the OS, not the drivers or applications software and will often corrupt or replace parts of the OS to accomplish its own nefarious objective.
tions programs, we simply erase the drive and reinstall the OS and device drivers. The cost is $90 and the process eliminates any OS or driver uncertainties. If the user has not backed up files but is willing to reinstall applications, we’ll back up the data, erase the drive, reinstall the OS, and then copy back the files. This costs $120.
The third choice is a dice roll. If the customer does not want to reinstall programs and has files that are important but not backed up, we remove the hard drive and run it through our scanning stations. We then put the drive back in the customer’s PC and run two “internal” scans.
When we determine that a PC is infected or corrupt there are some options. If the user doesn’t care about the files or has backed them up (pictures and files) and is willing to reinstall the applica-
fraudulent clinics to misuse $94 million in state funds over the past two years! No matter your views on government programs, this type of abuse is unacceptable.
At the beginning of this session, I reintroduced my Senate Constitutional Amendment 1, which would audit every state program to examine whether or not a program is achieving its objectives. Had SCA 1 been in place, the waste and fraud recently uncovered might have been prevented.
Future abuses can be mitigated, and California taxpayers simply deserve better.

When the scans run clean we check to see if the OS has been damaged. About 50% of the time the system works fine, the files and applications are saved and the cost is only $90. The other 50% of the time we find the OS must be reinstalled. That adds another $45 to the $90 malware removal charge and the customer will still need to reinstall any applications. Driver and applications software corruption are usually easy to diagnose and fix. The offending software is deleted, and then reinstalled. This process rarely exceeds our standard minimum charge of $30. Next week we’ll talk about hardware problems.
The Crazy Days of Summer
The Assembly’s July recess has ended, and the final, frantic August push is underway to finalize votes on hundreds of bills. This year, the Assembly approved 826 bills, and the Senate 755. These bills have passed out of their “house of origin,” and must receive final approval from the other chamber by the September 13 deadline.
Should they receive final legislative approval, a number of these bills will deserve special attention, including phone calls and emails to the Governor’s office from concerned voters requesting a veto. Here are just a few:
AB 1401 (Bob Wiechowski, DFremont). Allows non-citizens who are legal residents to serve on juries AB 1266 (Tom Ammiano, D – San Francisco). Allows pupils to participate in sex-segregated school programs and activities,
including sports teams and the use of bathroom and locker facilities, irrespective of biological gender. This bill has already passed both houses and has been forwarded to the Governor for his signature
AB 711 (Anthony Rendon, D – Lakewood). Bans the use of lead ammunition
SB 53 (Kevin De León, D – Los Angeles). Requires a permit, fee and background check to purchase ammunition
You can follow any bill’s progress at: www.leginfo.ca.gov
To contact the Governor’s office, please visit: http://gov.ca.gov
Direct citizen lobbying through emails, faxes and phone calls can have a major impact. Let Governor Brown know where you stand. Note: My staff will hold a Mobile District Office at Temecula City Hall from 9:0010:30 August 20th.

The Pastor Says . . .
practical communication tools, and like-minded friends.

Dr. Hal Seed, Lead Pastor, New Song Community Church, Oceanside Mr. and Mrs. Betterhalf
The bad news is that many marriages today are troubled. You’ve probably read the statistic that says fifty percent of marriages end in divorce. (The statistic is even worse for Marine families. Some say it’s above seventy percent for couples in their first duty station.) The good news is, the statistics are wrong!
According to New York Times writer Tara Parker-Pope, “divorce rates have dropped sharply since peaking in the late 1970s.” Most marriages improve significantly with the help of two simple resources:
During the month of September, New Song Community Church will offer three weeks of practical tools to kindle a love more powerful than your wedding day. We’re bringing in top speakers and authors to share what they know about men, women, and what it takes to become a better “betterhalf” in marriage partnerships.
New Song’s Bonsall Campus (31505 Old River Road), will feature Bill Farrell (author of Men are Like Waffles, Women are Like Spaghetti), Wilmer Pena (founder of First the Kingdom Ministries), and Jim Britts (author and producer of the book and movie, To Save a Life). The Oceanside Campus (3985 Mission Avenue), will include Bill Farrell, Hal Seed (author of best-selling The God Questions), and the nationallyacclaimed Comedy Team of Barnes and Miner.
