Volume 49 - No. 39

By Cindy Benson

From Forbes Magazine to the world’s foremost experts on the Indian Casino Industry, to public surveys and polls as to why people like some casinos more than others – these topics are all explored in this in-depth look at “The Battle of San Diego County Indian Casinos.”

INDIAN CASINO BATTLES RESEMBLE “ARMS RACE.” According to such world-renowned analysts as Dave Palermo (awardwinning newspaper reporter and The Paper - 760.747.7119

author of several articles on American Indian Government and Gambling Laws for well over 20 years), the current, ongoing ‘high stakes’ battle of Southern California casinos is now resembling “A hospitality arms race.” The aptly-described “Hospitality Arms Race” between powerful sovereign Indian Government Nations in casino warfare operations, indeed, draws strong parallels between competing nations during the nuclear arms race of the Cold War Era, when world governments

battled for a decisive edge to ensure survival-of-the-fittest.

CASINO “EXPLOSIONGROWTH” CAN CAUSE MUTUAL DESTRUCTION. As with the Nuclear Arms Race which led to the realization of MAD (the concept of “Mutually-Assured Destruction” of all competing nations during an allout nuclear warfare exchange), so also are Southern California Indian casinos aware of mutual financial destruction – or at least great mutual harm -- in a now “unstoppable and runaway momentum to out-do

each other.”

Today’s heavily saturated San Diego County casino industry have locked horns in a multi-billion dollar runaway expansion battle which has placed great financial stress and pressure on every side.

Under such competition for improved hospitality amenities such as high-rise hotels, lavish swimming pools, and eclectic restaurants, casinos initially report heavy financial losses in pursuit of lavish expansion costs and are,

themselves – ironically – gambling for long-term future ‘return-profits’ on their heavy investments. Such risks and financial dangers in attempting to “out-do” the competition is nothing new for California’s southland Indian Nations with casino/resort enterprises. Such casinodriven enterprises have fallen prey to overly-ambitious expansion projects in the past. For example, some tribal casinos were in “deep pockets” in financing developmental stages of hotel expansions and improvements when the 2007 Great Recession unexpectedly struck them dead in the water.

John Dinius, general manager at the Sycuan Casino at the time, vividly remembers, as he expressed to the print media back then: “We thought it would be prudent to put the brakes on that project when the economy did what it did.” Initially, Indian casinos have rocky beginnings, trying to navigate and get their bearings through early treacherous waters. As the late noted analyst, Dave Palermo, has pointed out, these casino enterprises require at least one calendar year before they really find their financial stride. And that’s just for the ones that survive.

Michael inquired, "Where have you been?"

Michael looked puzzled, and said, "What is it?"

AN CASINO/RESORT MYTH. Perhaps the single, biggest misconception, or myth, about the Indian casino resort and gaming industry is that they are all “automatic getrich” endeavors with a “100% guaranteed success business record” and a “zero failure rate.” Try telling that to such former San Diego County casinos as Santa Ysabel (44.8 miles east of Escondido, California) which opened on the Santa Ysabel Indian Reservation on April 11, 2007, then filed for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy on July 2, 2012 – after 5 years and 3 months of operation.

The casino, owned and operated by the Santa Ysabel Band of Diegueno Indians (Lipay Nation of mission Indians, aka Kumeyaay) officially closed its doors on its 349 slot machines, gaming tables (including poker and live blackjack) on February 3, 2014. Its total business operation ran almost 8 years, despite valiant attempts by Tribal Chairman, Virgil Perez, to remain solvent and to keep 115 staff jobs viable. Nevertheless, Virgil Perez must be congratulated and greatly admired for his tenacious efforts to avert bankruptcy status. Mainstream America never, or hardly ever, hears of these Indian casino failures.

Another notable example was the La Posta Casino (56 miles east of San Diego), which opened its doors for business in 2007 (same year as

Over here I've placed a continent of white people, and over there is a continent of black people. Balance in all things.” God continued pointing to different countries, "This one will be extremely hot, while this one will be very cold and covered in ice." Impressed by God's work, Michael then pointed to a land area and asked, "What's that one?"

God replied, "That's Texas, the most glorious place on Earth. There are beautiful trees and gardens, a beautiful river, and days filled with sunshine. The people from Texas are going to be handsome, modest, intelligent, and humorous, and they are going to travel the world. They will be extremely sociable, hardworking, high-achieving, carriers of peace, and producers of good things." Michael gasped in wonder and admiration, but then asked, "But what about balance, God? You said there would be balance."

God smiled, "I created California. Wait until you see the idiots I've put there." Am I getting to that age?

Although the two casino examples mentioned above are far smaller than the much larger gaming resort empires in San Diego County they, nevertheless, represent a microcosm of requirements which also drives and sustains their much larger cousins in a ferociously competitive casino market.

But first, it is necessary that we establish an accurate overview for the reader to see a clear perspective of these San Diego County resortgaming industries to better understand and appreciate the everyday importance and magnitude of economic power, prevalence, and the overall impact they have on our economy today. SAN DIEGO COUNTY IS THE “INDIAN CASINO CAPITOL OF THE WORLD.” Our own San Diego County has “more Indian reservations (19) and more Indian casinos (9) than any other county in the United States,” making San Diego’s metropolitan region, arguably, the “Indian Casino Capitol of the World,” according to the globally-popular Kumeyaay website: http://www.kumeyaay.info/san_die go_indian-casinos/

The need for such diverse languages reveal the range of power and influence which this San Diego website wields in attracting a global audience of curious people, often tourists (both foreign and domestic) planning vacations and sight-seeing at San Diego County’s worldrenowned attractions, such as our marvelous beaches, world-famous Zoo, Sea World, Legoland, San Diego Safari Park – and yes, the exotic appeal of our Native American casinos located on actual tribal reservation lands. All of which makes this particular website a most popular one to log onto for domestic and foreign tourists worldwide. This website, ostensibly, establishes San Diego County as the preeminent empire of America’s Indian Casino Industry.

WHERE SAN DIEGO COUNTY RANKS, IN THE PROLIFERATON OF INDIAN GAMING. San Diego County’s highest concentration of casino empires is, truly, an unchallenged fact. And a far more impressive fact when one considers the huge number of Native America casinos proliferating across the United States of America.

According to an official 2018 financial report released by the National Indian Gaming Commission: “There are over 494 gaming operations owned by 243 of the nation’s 566 federally-recognized tribes.” This is an increase of 3.9% over 2016, totaling a massive $32.4-billion each year, which represents 43% of all casino gaming revenue in the entire United States. Overall, the national clout and financial influence of Indian casinos across the length and breadth of the United States is too colossal to ignore, by any reference point – cultural, financial, employment, or otherwise.

One prodigious example is that Indian gaming pays $9-billion in taxes and revenue-sharing payments to federal, state, and local governments. (Source: National Indian Gaming Commission, www.nigc.gov)

LAS VEGAS GAMING INDUSTRY WITH TIES TO INDIAN CASINOS. It is virtually impossible to discuss/analyze San Diego County’s Indian gaming industry without viewing the whole gaming industry in its total, proper perspective, which includes Las Vegas and even Atlantic City in New Jersey. The inescapable reasoning is that these casinos – inside and outside of Indian reservations -- sometimes overlap in their symbiotic relationships. For example, Harrah’s resort/casino empire in San Diego County is owned by the Rincon Band of Luiseno Indians on reservation land, but operated by Caesars Entertainment Corporation, based in Nevada.

Caesars Entertainment Corporation is one of the world’s most diversified casino-entertainment providers and the most geographically diverse in the entire U. S. casino-entertainment industry. They presently operate over 50 properties and several golf courses under several different brand names.

Swedish Jazz musician, Gunhild Carling, performs on Friday, October 4th at 7pm. Gunhild Carling is famous for playing three trumpets at the same time. She became known for her performance at Allsang pa Skansen on July 20, 2010. She plays trombone, bagpipes, trumpet, recorder and harp, and will often showcase all of her skills in one song, sometimes casually breaking into a tap dance or singing lyrics. In 2013, Carling performed with her 'Carling Big Band' at the Royal Palace in Stockholm in the celebration of King Carl XVI Gustaf's Ruby Jubilee and in 2016, performed at King Carl XVI Gustaf's 70th birthday celebration. She is featured as a singer and multi-instrumentalist in several of Scott Bradlee's Postmodern Jukebox's adaptations of pop songs, including their version of 'Never Going to Give You Up', a 1920s jazz swing version of 'Material Girl', a vintage jazz version of Europe's 'The Final Countdown' and a jazz cover of Pharrel Williams' Happy'.

and learn” practices, California Indian casinos are quick-learners and have proved “selectively adaptable” by emulating “Vegas-like” features which seem to work in Nevada and pruning away elements which have back-fired on Las Vegas’ casino/resort industry. As Bo Bernhard, who heads the International Gaming Institute at the University of Las Vegas states, these Indian gaming operations “Have brought with them a ‘Las Vegas-ized’ approach to (casino) management and grown into their own unique entities.”

THE CARDINAL SIN OF NOT LISTENING TO THE PUBLIC. One crucial lesson many Indian casino/resorts have learned from Las Vegas’ negative experiences, is to listen more intently to the public, a bitter and costly lesson which the Nevada gaming industry learned the hard way. The Indian motto closely resembles the wise adage: “Hearing is a faculty. Listening, is an art.” Big egos often reside in Ivory Towers and many analysts contend that Las Vegas had lost touch in feeling the public pulse, which resonated in a national backlash of negative publicity and a plummeting annual tourist attendance. CASINOS ARE NOW “PROMISING TO LISTEN BETTER” THROUGH NEW AD CAMPAIGNS. Many segments of the giant casino gaming industry, such as Las Vegas and Atlantic City,

have learned the hard way of the importance of listening to their customers. In fact, Las Vegas and Atlantic City marketers have already launched ambitious campaigns to “re-open” communications with their customer base with a promise to “listen better” and inquire as to why their visitor rates have plummeted in the first place. One Las Vegas website tells the tale in bold print: “The irony of all this is Las Vegas is in a slump when the overall economy is booming. You can bet this is an ongoing source of frustration and embarrassment among casino executives.” Since September of 2018, expansive fiscal findings revealed overall Las Vegas revenue to have plummeted over 12% year-over-year with stock market value also continuing downward. Earning reports showed “soft numbers” for the 2nd quarter with predicted headwinds for the 3rd quarter. Some financial gurus have gone on record as saying that the overall Las Vegas resort/gambling situation may possibly be heading from bad to worse.

All because the Nevada gaming industry, ostensibly, failed to truly listen to the constructive critiques and complaints from its once-loyal annual fan base which has dwindled by the thousands each year, according to multiple visual and print news sources.

The Paper • Page 4 • September 26, 2019 Victims Sought in Theft from Fitness Center Locker Rooms

The City of Carlsbad Police Department is seeking additional victims of theft from fitness center locker rooms. On September 19, Carlsbad officers arrested 32- yearold Mayra Vasquez of Carlsbad in Encinitas and booked her into the Vista Detention Facility for multiple counts of identity theft and burglary. The series began in December of 2018 and investigators have reason to believe there are well over 20 cases related to the Carlsbad series and at this time, at least 30 countywide cases. Evidence indicates there are still numerous cases countywide and potentially additional victims.

The suspect(s) would enter a fitness center and remove property from the locker room. At times, vehicle keys were taken, and the vehicle was entered outside the fitness center. Wallets and other property were taken, and identities were stolen. Investigators are asking victims who have had property stolen from a fitness center locker room to contact their local Police Department to report the crime and have it potentially added to this series. Once victims have filed a report with their respective agencies, we are requesting that they please con-

There appears to be heavy interest in the next election for Mayor of Oceanside.

The present Mayor, Peter Weiss, has said he will not run for Mayor; he may opt to run for the District 4 council seat in 2020.

Councilmembers Jack Feller and Esther Sanchez, both incumbents, have already stated their intent to run for the office.

Other potential candidates who have filed campaign finance documents include Rocky Chavez, a former council member and state assemblyman, Jerry Kern, a former three-term Oceanside councilman, and Ruben Major, an Oceanside paramedic for 20 years and first time candidate. Mayor Jim Wood held the job with strong support for more than 13 years. He resigned at the end of 2017 because of ill health after being re-elected with 63 percent of the vote, and the council then appointed former City Manager Peter Weiss as Wood’s replacement.

way and transit projects across the county. SANDAG has known for years that there would not be enough funding to pay for the projects that were supposed to be funded by that tax extension.

Because of the funding shortfall, some SANDAG leaders have proposed canceling promised road projects and redirecting that money to transit, forcing many North County taxpayers to fund projects that will not benefit them. AB 1398 will ensure that any attempt to redistribute road and transit funding is transparent and has broad support. Here’s hoping Assemblymember Waldron’s many friends across the aisle will join her and get this bill passed and rein in the bureaucrats that seek to divert tax money away from its original intent.

Year by year, Vegas had a dalliance with “denial.” Not wanting to admit to these decreased tourist numbers only made matters worse. Now – like a white elephant standing in their living rooms – the slump is now too big to be denied, or ignored. In their promised campaign to listen better to their customers, two of the world’s mightiest Las Vegas casino empires, Caesars Entertainment and MGM Resorts, are in full-throttle, aggressively mailing out customer surveys asking the hard questions such as: “What causes you to not like a particular resort?” and “What things annoy or displease you?”

And this is not just for local citizens. The surveys are comprehensive enough to ask out-of-state travelers why they have changed their plans to visit Las Vegas in the first place.

Some cynics and insiders are calling the surveys: “Better Late Than Never Questions.” The survey questions are extensive, ranging from entertainment, restaurant food, hotel accommodations, parking fees, and drink pricing, leaving no stone unturned with the detailed and extensive survey questionnaires.

The integral point is that the Indian casinos are, likewise, not immune

to disgruntled or dissatisfied customers, for any assorted reasoning they may harbor. To pretend otherwise -- is to take an unnecessary risk. Smart promoters are opening and encouraging customer feedback. Las Vegas and Atlantic City’s “damage control” motto is one which San Diego County Indian casinos can learn from . . . or else risk lower foot traffic and revenue in their own backyards. The motto simply being a marketing mantra that is being repeated constantly: “It’s never too late to win them back . . . but, you gotta first start listening to your customers!”

TOP REASON PEOPLE STOP VISITING CASINO/RESORTS (VIZ. IN LAS VEGAS). Though the questionnaires asked customers why they stopped coming to Las Vegas, Indian Casinos learn quickly through observation and adaptation to avoid similar quagmires of their own. 1. RESORT FEES. Overwhelmingly, people who have stopped going to casino/resorts stated in repeated surveys, polls, and questionnaires that they are “finally fed-up with being nickel-and-dimed to death” by the casino resort industry. Although vacationers are willing to spend money on memorable trips, they now deeply resent being gouged and taken advantaged of with increasing resort fees. A common complaint was: “I’m sick of all these added resort fees! And word is spreading fast!”

Ah, Memories!

Other replies to the mailed questionnaires were along the same theme: “We have finally reached the breaking point with exorbitant, increasing resort fees for things we pay for and never – or hardly ever - use! We’re never coming back here!”

WHAT ARE RESORT FEES? Daily resort fees and parking fees can cover in-room Wi-Fi and local phone calls, fitness centers, workout gym facilities, swimming pools, and other amenities, to cite just a few examples. Visitors complained on repeated surveys that the ‘clincher’ is that the resort fees are automatically charged on customer hotel bills, whether or not a hotel guest uses those amenities (such as the swimming pool, fitness center, etc.).

Daily resort fees and parking charges, for example, in Las Vegas have added as much as $45 to a visitor’s hotel bills. A resort fee for one casino/resort climbed from $2 a night to over $32 per night. Another resort fee climbed to $39 (per day) and added to the total hotel bill at the end of the visitors’ vacation stay. Another casino/hotel charged a $45 resort fee every day, which was added to the overall hotel bill. According to newspaper reports and business analysts: “Visits to Vegas have dropped in each of the last 10 months, a fact that is attributed to frustration with resort fees.” the poem reminded me of several scenes from the “Godfather” when the Police Captain says “When you gotta go you gotta go” or when Clemenza while at the side of the road finishes and says “…and don”t forget the Canollis.” And then the teaser at the end; it is my friend “Lyle” who’s is guided by Guile.

Well, for me the guiding light at the age of 81is a compulsion I am made aware of at 2:30 AM which once relieved allows me to go back to sleep having done my duty.

SHOCKING FACT: HIGH RATE OF CASINO FAILURE. Casino bankruptcy caused by a wide variety of unforeseen legal and financial complications – as well as lack of public support -- is nothing new to the gaming industry, whether it be in-or-out of Indian reservation lands. Often these casino-failure statistics go unnoticed to the general public and, therefore, remain a shocking and unknown fact for many readers. Even such long-established juggernauts as Las Vegas and Atlantic City – which have served as longstanding models to emulate by the newly-burgeoning Indian casinos -are not immune to such ignominious collapse.

The ledger shows no shortage of seemingly flagrant oversights and avoidable blunders.

In the past, Atlantic City in New Jersey had planned for over 40 beach resort casinos which – due to unforeseen financial complications along with an economic downturn – failed to even materialize, with all such plans abandoned before groundbreaking ceremonies were announced. As with Atlantic City, Las Vegas has had its lion’s share of challenges with 41 casinos enthusiastically-planned, but, never opened.

California’s First Constitution

One-hundred, forty-seven years ago this month, 48 delegates at Colton Hall in Monterrey worked to draft California's first Constitution. This past week, visitors to the California Museum were treated to a rare public display of both the English and Spanish versions of the original 1849 California Constitution as these documents are typically housed at the California State Archives.

Though California was not officially admitted into the Union until September 9, 1850, the people of our Great State were eager to establish a formal government following the United States’ acquisition of the territory from Mexico. On September 1, 1849, California’s first Constitutional Convention was held in Monterey and on November 13, a Constitution was ratified. The Constitution of 1849 begins with a Bill of Rights, establishes the branches of government we use today, and includes provisions on the prohibition of slavery, separation of powers, allowing married women to own separate property, and granting every white male citizen the right to vote. It also left questions of taxation up to the Legislature and established San Jose as the permanent seat of government. This document also decreed that all laws must be pub-

lished in both English and Spanish, making California originally a bilingual state.

At the signing, the US flag was raised and a thirty-one gun salute echoed in the air. As the signing finished, and the 31st gun was heard, there was a shout, "That's for California!”

This constitution was only amended three times in the 30 years it was active. In 1879, it was determined that the original Constitution omitted direction on too many key issues, such as the expenditure of money, and a new Constitution, the one we currently use today, was adopted. Assembly Republican Leader 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.

The future of San Diego’s transportation is about to be decided. This Friday, SANDAG (San Diego Association of Governments) will decide where $600 million is going to be spent. From trolleys, to trains to freeways, anything is on the table. At our last board hearing SANDAG unveiled a draft that I thought focused too much on public transportation and not enough on roads, which is what 97.5% of people rely on to get around.

I support an alternative proposal presented by SANDAG Chairman Steve Vaus and Escondido Mayor Paul McNamara. Our proposal is the most balanced plan, which keeps promises to the voters and recognizes changing times. Throughout the last nine months, while the SANDAG debate has picked up steam, I’ve remained steadfast. We need a plan that is balanced, that meets the needs of people on the freeways and public transit. This Friday, the future of $600 million for transportation will be decided, let your voice be heard. Email SANDAG, Clerk@sandag.org and tell them

not to forget about North County. We need our roads, too.

Humane Society Celebrates Grand Opening of New Behavior Center – This month, San Diego Humane Society is celebrating the grand opening of their new Behavior Center. This state-of-the-art facility is now home to one of our most unique lifesaving programs. Since it launched in 2013, the Behavior Center has rehabilitated more than 3,000 animals to prepare them for new homes. Behavior issues are among the most significant challenges animal welfare organizations fact today. With nearly 35,000 companion animals entering our shelters, we’re grateful to be able to offer them a true rehabilitation program, without which many of these animals would not be able to be adopted into homes. The Behavior Center is one of our most important tools in achieving our mission of saving lives.

John C. Fremont: Pathfinder of the West

More than any other American, John Charles Fremont accomplished farreaching feats, which not only resulted in the settling of the American West, but was instrumental in the founding of California… and, the nation.

Fallbrook Scarecrow Days Celebrated October 1-31 – Scarecrows are back, invading Fallbrook for the eighth annual Fallbrook Scarecrow Days, October 1-31. It promises to be a month of community fun and a tourist destination to the “Friendly Village”. Businesses and residential areas will be displaying scarecrows of all genres.

There isn’t enough space to detail Fremont’s many accomplishments, as well as blunders and controversial decisions attributed to him. He held a controversial appointment as the first U.S. governor of California and later was elected as one of the state’s first two U.S. senators.

It started off with his presidential appointment to explore the West by James Polk; Later he would be convicted of mutiny in an Army court martial, only to become the first presidential candidate of the Republican Party.

Along with Washington, Jefferson, and Lincoln, the name “Fremont” can be found throughout the nation titling cities, counties, streets, schools, libraries and even a football championship trophy between universities in Nevada.

A field of “Silent People” sway in the breeze creating eeriness, mystery, laughter; playing on one's imagination. “Give 'em Pumpkin to Talk About” scarecrows will adorn Main Street. Drive on South Mission and look out for scarecrows marching to Bonsall to meet up with other scarecrows. Over 100 scarecrows will be displayed, great for taking pictures and seeing the Scarecrows up close and personal. Make October a “stay-cation” in charming, historic, vibrant, small town Fallbrook. Bring the entire family to enjoy the amenities of fine restaurants, unique boutiques, art district, entertainment, antiques, parks, preserves and nature trails, and museums. Fallbrook also features world -class golf, resorts and casinos as well as local wineries. It is also the center for commerce, cultural and educational life. The Harvest Fair, October 20th, coincides with Fallbrook Scarecrow Days. For more events, location of scarecrows, or other info, contact the Fallbrook Chamber of Commerce at www.fallbrookchamberofcommerce.org or 760-728-5845

Historians portray Frémont as controversial, impetuous, and contradictory. Some scholars regard him as a military hero of significant accomplishment, while others view him as a failure. Nevertheless, Fremont became popularly known as America’s “Pathfinder.” He was the first to lead a party across the Rockies and Sierras into California.

In 1841, Frémont married Jessie Benton, daughter of Missouri’s U.S. Sen. Thomas Hart Benton, who was the Democratic Party’s leader for more than 30 years in the U.S. Senate. Benton championed the Western expansionist movement known as “Manifest Destiny,” which was a common belief among politicians and military leaders that the entire North American continent belonged to the United States.

The young American public embraced “The Pathfinder’s” (Fremont’s) vision of the West and its inviting lands to be settled. Because of Fremont detailed reports, the Mormons were lured to Utah. He mapped and documented the Lewis & Clark expedition early in the 19th century.

In 1846, war with Mexico. U.S. Navy Commodore Robert F. Stockton captured San Diego and U.S. Army Major Fremont led an expedition of 300 men to capture Santa Barbara and Los Angeles. It was Fremont who accept-

ed the surrender of California by Mexican Gov. Andres Pico, putting it under U.S. control. Stockton appointed Fremont military governor of the new territory.

But trouble developed out of that appointment. Fremont was challenged by an old army foe, Brig. Gen. Stephen Watts Kearny (whose name on streets, towns and cities also is sprinkled across the West). The general claimed he had been appointed California’s military governor by President Polk. Fremont refused to step aside, but Kearny pulled rank and ordered the major to report back to Washington, D.C., to stand a court-martial trial. Fremont was convicted of mutiny, disobedience of a superior officer and military misconduct. Because of Fremont’s many accomplishments, President Polk quickly commuted Fremont’s sentence to a dishonorable discharge. But, he wasn’t finished with the Army.

In 1846, Fremont returned to California and got rich in the gold fields. Then in 1850, upon the admission of California into the Union, Frémont was elected to serve as one of the state’s first two senators.

In 1856, the fledgling GOP party nominated Fremont as their first presidential candidate. He lost the election to Democrat James Buchanan, but when the Civil War broke out, newly-elected President Abraham Lincoln appointed Fremont a brigadier general and gave him command of the Army of the West based in St. Louis. Frémont had few successes during that brief tenure. He ran his department autocratically, making hasty decisions without consulting Washington D.C. or President Lincoln. He even made his own proclamation freeing the slaves in his area of command. After Frémont's slave “emancipation” edict, he was relieved of command by Lincoln for insubordination. But in 1861, before being relieved, he won a battle defeating the Confederates at Springfield, Ill. Frémont was the only Union General to have a Union victory that year. There was one other important victory. He saw great potential in a relatively unknown militia general by the name of Ulysses S. Grant. Fremont put Grant in command of an expedition to secure the Mississippi River. Grant went on to be the Union’s most successful general – thanks for Fremont’s foresight.

After his removal from command, Fremont languished in Washington bureaucracy, retiring from the Army in 1864. Years later President Rutherford Hayes appointed him Governor of the Arizona Territory, but he never regained the reputation he once enjoyed.

On July 13, 1890, Frémont died in New York City at the age of 77. Today, historians give mixed reviews on Fremont’s life. He had his advocates as well as critics, but Fremont is one of America’s most important historical figures. John C. Fremont’s story was written by author David Nevin (not the actor) in “Dream West,” which later was made into a TV mini-series starring Richard Chamberlain.

new machine in. Only used it for half an hour, as I started to feel sick. It's great though. It does everything – Kit Kats, Mars Bars, Snickers, Potato chips, the lot.." Middle age is when your old classmates are so wrinkled and gray and bald that they don't recognize you.

An elderly couple were strolling on the beach when a seagull flew over them and relieved itself on the woman's head. "Yech!," she said, "get me some toilet paper." "What for," he said, "it'll be miles away by now." A recent study found that women who carry a little extra weight, live longer than the men who mention it.

"Tell me the good news first," said Joe.

"The good news," Frank said with joy and enthusiasm, "is that there is golf in heaven. Better yet, all of our old buddies who died before me are here too. Even better than that, we're all young again. Better still, it's always Summertime and it never rains or snows. And best of all, we can play golf all we want, and we never get tired. " And we get to play with all the Greats of the past. "That's fantastic," said Joe "It's beyond my wildest dreams! So what's the bad news?" "You're in my foursome this Saturday" QUESTIONS THAT HAUNT ME!

How important does a person have to be before they are considered assassinated instead of just murdered? Once you're in heaven, do you get stuck wearing the clothes you were buried in for eternity? Why does a round pizza come in a square box?

What disease did cured ham actually have?

People are going to the moon, aliens are coming to earth. And I’m still pushing on a door that says . . “pull.” Two 60-year-old men, Frank and Joe, had been friends all of their lives.

When it was clear that Frank was dying, Joe visited him every day. One day Joe said, "Frank, we both loved playing golf all our lives, and we started playing soon after high school. Please do me one favor: when you get to heaven, somehow you must let me know if there's golf there."

Frank looked up at Joe from his deathbed and said, "Joe, you've been my best friend for many years. If it's at all possible, I'll do this favor for you." Shortly after that, Frank died.

A few weeks later, Joe was awakened from a sound sleep by a blinding flash of white light and a voice calling out to him, "Joe, Joe."

"Who is it," asked Joe, sitting up suddenly. "Who is it?" "Joe -- it's me, Frank"

"You're not Frank . Frank just died."

"I'm telling you, it's me, Frank," insisted the voice. "Frank, Where are you?"

"In heaven," replied Frank. "I have some really good news and a little bad news."

How is it that we put man on the moon before we figured out it would be a good idea to put wheels on luggage? Why is it that people say they 'slept like a baby' when babies wake up like every two hours? Why are you IN a movie, but you're ON TV?

Why do people pay to go up tall buildings and then put money in binoculars to look at things on the ground? Why do doctors leave the room while you change? They're going to see you naked anyway... Why is 'bra' singular and 'panties' plural?

Why do toasters always have a setting that burns the toast to a horrible crisp, which no decent human being would eat?

Indian Casino Battles Cont. from Page 5

Even long-established casinos have since gone bankrupt, such as the once-legendary Sahara hotel/casino which went the way of extinction. The once-popular icon, the Riviera hotel/casino, which has been featured in many movies and films, filed for bankruptcy in 2010 and then was ceremoniously demolished in 2016. Others have followed and duly recorded by both the print and visual media, sometimes under the stark and foreboding filing: “Las Vegas Casino Death Watch.” Point being – and lesson learned by the Indian Resort Gaming Industry – is that even their best and sharpest marketers and planning teams can make devastating, costly, “mountain-sized” mistakes both in judgment, as well as failing to take advantage of golden opportunities which they have, ignominiously, allowed to slip away.

CAN THE BEST CASINORESORT MARKETING MINDS BE SO TOTALLY WRONG? The ponderous question remains: “Can many of the world’s finest economic business experts and financial planning wizards have been so wrong in their pre-marketing assessments and pre-construction demographics and investment projections?” As enumerated above, a combined total of over 80 planned casino/resorts by Vegas and Atlantic City from their foremost planning advisors and financial wizards, all bit the dust – most before even an opening “ribboncutting” ceremony. Obviously, the long list of Las Vegas, Atlantic City, and various Indian casinos that have had a rendezvous with the demolition wrecking ball, all speak loudly in answering a resounding and repetitive “yes” – even the best, the most seasoned, and the most experienced minds with the best successrecords can – and have, multipletimes over -- proven to have been (flagrantly) wrong in their marketing assessments, projections, and even simple evaluations on how best to expand or grow their customer market.

MISSED OPPORTUNTIES IN INDIAN GAMING INDUSTRY CAN BE COSTLY. Such a saturation of competitiveness within the Indian Gaming & Resort Industry creates the necessity for fresh marketing campaigns that are newer, up-to-date, and which stay current and “adaptable” to capricious public trends, changing tastes, and economic downswings. There is little room for error.

Graveyards for bankrupt and abandoned casino development plans are the most convincing testimonials to learn from. Survival even includes the need to adapt to changing “age demographics” which are in the state of con-

stant flux. Not to mention the accompanying mixtures of “likes” and “dislikes” within a new marketing baseline. If these factors are not included within the equation of casino-marketing and promotional schemes, then they are at great risk for huge, future revenue losses, or even eventual bankruptcy. As one financial source stated: “Often casinos, in and outside of Las Vegas, Atlantic City, and in various Indian Casino Country, fail to take into consideration that their already-established ‘older gamblers’ are constantly ‘dying off” and not being adequately replaced by as many millennials.” A “Bullet Power Point” for every San Diego County Indian casino/resort is that they cannot afford to rest on their laurels but must continue to carefully push onward; and they must use “prevention plans,” as opposed to “damage control efforts” later on, which can prove costly, dangerous – and carry unnecessary risks.

Apollo 11 Technician to Visit History Museum - A man who identified himself as an aerospace technician and was present at the launch of Apollo 11 to the moon contacted the Valley Center History Museum this week to confirm that the museum's exhibition on the historic event would be in place when he visited Southern California on an upcoming trip. The caller, who did not want his name publicly released at this time, said he would agree to an interview during his visit. He said he lives in suburban Houston and was a technician at North American Aviation whose chief executive, Valley Center resident John Leland Atwood, designed the Apollo 11 command module and the rocket that took men to the moon 50 years ago.

Casino marketing schemes are not enough.

They must be effective, ever-changing, and adaptable for the future. Constantly adjusting to a customer market in flux is crucial for the lifeblood of these mega-customerbased businesses to continue to not only survive – but flourish in a ferociously competitive market.

Problem is: many seasoned and polished casino ad-and-marketing teams are often too self-enamored with their own “ways of doing things” and “do not keep an open mind for newer, evolutionary ideas.”

Failure to adapt to new ideas can lead to extinction in an already heavily-saturated market.

INDIAN CASINOS MUST “EXPAND THEIR CUSTOMER MARKET” INSTEAD OF JUST COMPETING WITH EACH OTHER! According to the world’s foremost authorities such as Dr. Alan P. Meister, who holds multiple degrees in Economics from the University of California at Irvine and author of the annual Indian Gaming Industry Report (which has been cited by the U. S. Supreme Court), Meister believes Indian casinos should be expanding their customer market, rather than just competing head-to-head. As Meister explains: “While the market is not over-saturated, there is a very strong competition given the number of tribal casinos operating in the region. I think there is still room for growth, but it’s about trying to expand the market and grow the market.” The late Dave Palermo, longtime Las Vegas-based Indian gaming expert, agreed with Meister’s assessment and how the Indian gaming marketers are going in the wrong direction: “Those expansive projects are more indicative of the increasing competition among the casinos themselves rather than the economy. They’re trying to keep

pace with the rest of the competition rather than expanding their market share.” While adding high-rise hotels and lavish lagoon-style swimming pools and an array of restaurants, casino promoters forget that these marketing amenities: (1) Only sustain and keep the already-established customer market and (2) Only attracts another slice of patrons from the already-established market. However, these costly schemes: (1) Do little to attract “new” non-casino patrons who, statistically, have never been to a casino/resort, nor do they harbor any interest of doing so.

ANALYSIS OF MARKETING TECHNIQUES: DIRECT MAILINGS, RADIO, TV, CYBER ADVERTISING. Remember, the name of the game is not just for casinos to compete directly with each other, nor to sustain/keep their status quo of customers – or not even to lure added customers from an “already existing consumer base” – but rather: to “grow, expand, and add ‘new noncasino/resort patrons.”

Unless one lives in a parallel universe, or “Neverland,” or other fantasy world, casino/resort promoters must concede the realistic, but uncomfortable, fact that there remains a vast, uncharted untapped market of customers who “simply don’t care about casino/resorts.”

executives, visited Atwood at his home on Fruitvale Road and mounted a bronze plaque honoring Atwood. It remains in place today, and a copy is part of the museum's display.

DAR Hears Program on Tender Loving Canines – The Santa Margarita Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR), were honored to have Karen Shultz, President of Tender Loving Canines and Major Linda Stanley USAF (ret) as speakers at their last meeting. Major Stanley, a retired military nurse, shared some of her active duty experiences resulting in her retirement from what is termed invisible wounds. She received her canine assistant, Willow, and is currently working with veterans, helping transform their lives with service dogs. Ms. Shultz then presented a power point about how Tender Loving Canines is transforming lives for those with traumatic brain injury, and those on the autism spectrum. The dogs are trained by prison inmates, and by professional trainers, to meet the particular needs of the canine recipient. The positive reinforcement training used to train the dogs is also proving helpful in adjusting the thinking of the prisoners. Autism and traumatic brain injury are similar in that both can drastically affect the five senses. Members asked many questions and were quite impressed with Willow and her concern for Major Stanley. Chapter Regent,

Social Butterfly Cont. on Page 10 The casino/resort challenge remains: “How do you reach them, let alone, appeal to them?”

ADS & FLYERS. Lavish, colorful casino/resort ads buried within the pages of newspapers and magazines touting hospitality amenities have absolute “zero-power” to suddenly and miraculously “convert” noncasino/resort people’s thinking. They simply turn the pages as easily as when they see a “kitty litter discount coupon.” DIRECT MAILINGS. Likewise, stuffing mailboxes with direct casino mailings is, according to statistical surveys, only viewed as “nuisance junk mail” – and automatically and ceremoniously thrown into the dustbin in one lump sum. Again, it fails to grow “new” customers.

TV ADS. Casino television commercials may be exciting to alreadyestablished resort customers, but to the vast majority of viewers, such TV commercials are the best time to grab a beer, soft drink, snack, chat, channel surf, or simply use the bathroom. RADIO EXPOSURE. Radio advertising in your car, again, may be of fleeting interest for status quo patrons, but generally speaking, such “air time” is usually “chat time” and “diversionary time”

Oceanside Presents Proclamation for Constitution Week - Members of the Santa Margarita Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR), were on hand as Mayor Peter Weiss, and the City Council of Oceanside, presented a

Proclamation for Constitution Week to chapter 1st Vice Regent, Laura Horn. Constitution Week was initiated by the National Society and signed as Public Law 915. The week of September 17-23 is celebrated throughout the nation and September 17th is especially notable. Bells Across America was established as a way for the nation to celebrate at the same time 4pm in Washington DC, 1pm on the Pacific Coast, and a similar time frame in other time zones. Stepping outside to rings bells on September 17th sends a resounding salute across the nation for the longest lasting constitution in the world. The proclamation will be displayed at the annual DAR, SAR, CAR luncheon at MCRD on Saturday, September 21st. The DAR is open to any female eighteen years of age or older who is lineally descended from an ancestor who assisted the patriots in the fight for independence in the American Revolution.

have an extraordinary program and lunch. The program will feature Vic Martin, U.S. Navy, Retired, who will speak on the “Shelter to Soldier” program whose slogan is “Saving Two Lives at a Time.” This incredible program will feature the path Vic traveled to combat his own transition, after a service-related traumatic brain injury, from depression, paranoia, and isolation, to normalcy with the use of a Shelter Dog. Using his own personal experience as a point of departure, Vic will explain how the Shelter to Soldier Program focuses on the use of a shelter dog to assist those with similar type injuries in the transition back to a productive lifestyle. Vic found out about the program after he met with Graham Bloem, co-founder of this magnificent program. The miraculous use of a shelter dog, matched up with the appropriate individual, is the highpoint of this program. Not only is a human being saved from the constant stress resulting from traumatic brain injury, but a shelter dog is also saved, perhaps from euthanasia. It’s a Win-Win situation of the highest order. In this case, Vic’s, and the dog’s, lives were forever changed from one of despair to one of hope. Attendees at the meeting will meet Vic and his service dog, Mia. The lunch will be a typical Thanksgiving feast with roast turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy, vegetables, salad and pumpkin pie for dessert. The doors open at 9:00am with coffee and tea available. The meeting place is The Golf Club of California, 3742 Flowerwood Ln, Fallbrook. To reserve, send your check for $23, made payable to BWC, to Barbara Hartloff, 4202 Palomar Dr. Fallbrook, CA 92028.

A visit to the Navajo reservation in Arizona sparked an interest in the famous Navajo Code Talkers of World War 2.

Most of the code talkers were Marines and they were all trained for combat as radio operators. Their code, based on the Navajo language, was never broken by the Japanese.

One of the code talkers told about his fear of going across the ocean to the war in the Pacific. On a trip home, his father said prayers for him and used corn pollen as part of the prayers. He gave his son a supply of corn pollen for future prayers.

On the troop ship, he would say the prayers and toss the pollen into the ocean, that it might remain calm. Before long, he ran out of pollen.

Prayer is a connection. It is man, feeling alone, hopeless, powerless, reaching out to God who is fellowship, strength and power. Prayer brings us home, or at least to the feeling of home, when we are far away.

We find a lot of excuses not to pray. Hindrances. Distractions. That young Navajo Marine could have offered excuses. A troop ship was full of distractions. The lack of corn pollen was a hindrance. But he desired to connect. He found a way. Sometimes we don’t have all we need to pray. We don’t have the time, or the words, or the inclination. But, we too, need to find a way. Gather up the courage, the urgency, the desire we have, to call out to God and connect with him. God hears. He answers. He calms.

Escondido • Mayor Paul “Mac” Mcnamara Greetings Escondido,

Housing Continued- the trick: where to build them.

No one answer will satisfy everyone. Infill is opposed by those who feel it will ruin the downtown district. Others don’t want any more of the open county space developed even though less than 25% of the county is developed. Parents want workforce housing so children can stay in the area. The state pressures us to build more affordable housing for the disadvantaged and medium/high end housing. Riverside county housing has caused the I-15 to be a parking lot that contributes to the county not making its GHG emission standards. Having little high- end housing hurts us economically by not attracting high-end business persons. It will take generations of building before Public Transportation alleviates traffic. When you couple that fact to the projected 1 million people moving in over the next 30 years, it’s a good bet that traffic will get worse before it gets better. So as you can see, there are a number of factors we have to consider. More to follow… Semper Fi,

Mac, Paul P. McNamara Mayor of Escondido pmcnamara@escondido.org

Oceanside • Mayor Peter Weiss Ride Hailing Service

FordX, a division of Ford Motor Company, will be starting a live ride-hail service pilot program utilizing Neighborhood Electric Vehicles (“NEVs”) in downtown Oceanside in a few weeks and will continue for a period of no more than 8-10 weeks.

The service area is bounded on the east by I-5, on the west by the Pacific Ocean, by the Oceanside Harbor on the north, and Wisconsin Ave on the south and loading/off-loading of passengers shall occur only inside the service area.

between occupants of most vehicles. As one media source has it: “Unless listeners are engaged in a particular newscast or jamming to Justin Timberlake’s newest hit single, your radio ad serves as mere ‘background noise’ while car passengers engage in conversations.”

FREE CASINO SHUTTLE BUSES. Likewise, as with costly casino shuttle buses (a huge financial investment) which transport regular patrons over long distances, to-and-from casinos free of charge, once again – they do nothing to win new “never-before-been-to-a-casino” customers who remained “uninterested” most of their adult life. Despite the top-heavy opinion of the best experts on Indian casinos such as the aforementioned worldrenowned Dr. Alan P. Meister and the authoritative Dave Palermo (who published for 13 different newspapers): “They keep trying to compete with each other rather than expand their market share.”


market base,” advertising must not be buried in the back pages of even popular, mainstream publications. Readers will merely turn the pages ignoring such ads. Nor should the publication completely convert to total front-cover ads for casino/resorts advertising purposes – because that would “immediately kill” any interest for any person with no casino/resort interest – they would not even pick up a copy. So how does one reach such a huge, uncharted and untapped ocean of potential patrons?

SUBTERFUGE” IS MARKETING GENIUS. However, if a popular publication, with a powerful (noncasino) readership based in Southern California, along with a powerful, extended and loyal online readership which has been acknowledged from California to the East Coast and even foreign customer contacts in Europe (viz., the United Kingdom, Germany, and Italy for example), such a cosmopolitan mixture can be accessible for casino/resort marketing. How?

First off, a marketing magnet is to maintain and keep popular cover

stories (in similar genre as People Magazine, The Enquirer, Readers Digest, etc.) in order to keep the general public riveted to exclusive, sometimes shocking generic news or story lines, such as “The Day President Reagan Was Shot” or “Shocking Declassified Files Reveal Real UFO Threat” – all of which have actually been featured in The Paper. Within the pages – when the reader must turn pages to remain glued and continue reading the riveting storyline – the entire interior of the publication is completely full of casino/resort advertisement in glorious color and provocative enticements. How is this different from usual advertising which readers may ignore?

Vastly different because in this scenario – unlike TV or radio ads or junk mailings – the readers “freely choose” (by their own choice) to continue reading and, thus, willingly turn the pages to remain glued to the storyline. As such, they “linger, taking their time” to read through the cover story page-after-page. But, in so doing, the “immersion” of promotional casino/resort advertisement (which fills every page), eventually “sinks in” over time, through osmosis. As the most prudent research marketing minds have stated: “Under such circumstances when readers

‘choose’ to peruse a tangible publication (such as physical holding and reading a riveting cover story), eventually through processed time, osmosis, and exposure – such readers will evolve and begin to view such full-blown advertisements – eventually -- as plausible consumers.”

on different calendar dates. This observance is to celebrate the rich and diverse cultures, traditions, and historical legacies – as well as the important contributions, social and economic – of America’s First People aka The First Nation.

This is not a “corruption” of readers, since the vast majority of casino/resort revenue (in and outside of reservation lands) is not from gambling revenue, which is a huge misconception. Rather, the vast revenue of all gaming industry in the United States comes, by far, from resort amenities such as: hotel, gift shops, restaurants, poolside attractions, and entertainment, to enumerate several examples – with actual casino gambling revenue far down the list.

DEDICATION. In 1968, California governor Ronald Reagan signed a resolution for a holiday called “Native American Day,” to be observed on the 4th Friday of September. In 1998, the California Assembly passed “AB 1953” which made Native American Day an official state holiday. This year, Native American Day falls on September 27, 2019. Other U. S. states have followed with their own observance of Native American Day, sometimes

In the spirit of acknowledging Native American contributions and their overall cultural impact as America’s First People, this article is dedicated. Why did you just try singing the two songs above?

Did you ever notice that when you blow in a dog's face, he gets mad at you, but when you take him for a car ride, he sticks his head out the window? Why, Why, Why do we press harder on a remote control when we know the batteries are getting dead? Why do banks charge a fee on 'insufficient funds' when they know there is not enough money?

Why does someone believe you when you say there are four billion stars, but check when you say the paint is wet? Why do they use sterilized needles for death by lethal injection? Why doesn't Tarzan have a beard?

Why does Superman stop bullets with his chest, but ducks when you throw a revolver at him? Why do Kamikaze pilots wear helmets?

If people evolved from apes, why are there still apes?

Why is it that no matter what colour bubble bath you use the bubbles are always white? Is there ever a day that mattresses are not on sale?

Why do people constantly return to the refrigerator with hopes that something new to eat will have materialized? Why do people keep running over a thread a dozen times with their vacuum cleaner, then reach down, pick it up, examine it, then put it down to give the vacuum one more chance? Why is it that no plastic bag will open from the end on your first try? How do those dead bugs get into those enclosed light fixtures?

Why is it that whenever you attempt to catch something that's falling off the table you always manage to knock something else over? In winter why do we try to keep the house as warm as it was in summer when we complained about the heat?

You should consult your attorney if you want the community property presumption to be written into the recorded title to the property. 9/17, 9/26, 10/3 & 10/10/2019 FICTITIOUS BUSINESS NAME STATEMENT #2019-9020664 The name of the business, Friends in Business, The Friends in Business Network, located at 1255 Stratford Court, San Marcos, Ca. 92078.
