Volume 43- No. 42

Chances are you saw the Quentin Tarantino movie, “Django.”
It was a fictional tale of a black former slave who become a successful bounty hunter and rescuer of his lady. A real shootem-up in the best tradition of the Wild Wild West. But did you know there was a real-life counterpart to Django?
His name was Bass Reeves, one of the first African Americans to become a Deputy U.S. Marshal west of the Mississippi River.
Reeves, who was born a slave, The Paper - 760.747.7119

arrested 3,000 felons, killed 14 men and was never shot throughout his 32-year career as a federal lawman.
The fearless soldier was born into slavery in 1838 in Crawford County, Arkansas, and eventually broke from his owner, Confederate Colonel George Reeves, to live among the Creek and Seminole Indians. During his time with them, he learned their customs and languages and became an adept territorial scout. While living with the Seminoles, Bass learned how to speak the languages of the Five Civilized Tribes, and trained himself in the arts of sweet fighting. He enthusiastically took up shooting, becom-
ing a deadly marksman with a rifle and an incredibly fast quick-draw with pistols. He was ambidextrous, could fire equally well with both hands, and could handle two guns at a time. He became such a crack shot with a rifle that he was actually forbidden from participating in all competitive turkey shoots in the Indian Territories.
Bass was an unlikely candidate to become one of the most insane, over-the-top, jerkychomping tough guys in the American West. Sure, he was big, tough, and strong, but for a lot of black slaves living in 1860s Texas there really wasn't a whole lot available in the way of social mobility. Growing up, all Bass really had to look
forward to was a lifetime of servitude and menial labor.
Reeves became a Deputy U.S. Marshal in 1875 at the age of 38, after 'Hanging Judge' Isaac C. Parker was made the federal judge of Indian Territory. Under President Ulysses S. Grant, Parker appointed Confederate Army General James Fagan a U.S. Marshal and ordered him to hire 200 deputies. Among them was Reeves.
Fagan knew of the former slave, his ability to negotiate Indian Territory and his ability to speak their languages. Thanks to his mammoth phys-

ical strength, tracking skills, intimate knowledge of the terrain, and language proficiency, he easily earned a spot on the force. and so Reeves was named the first black Deputy Marshal west of the Mississippi. In that role he was authorized to arrest both black and white outlaws. As a Deputy U.S. Marshal, Reeves patrolled 75,000 square miles of Indian Territory.
Now back in the 1870s the Indian Territory was a sick nightmare from hell. The vast uncharted expanse – nearly seventy-five thousand miles of lawless terrain – was infested with fugitives, criminals, and escaped convicts, and was a rough land that made life tough for residents and visitors alike. It was up to guys like Bass Reeves and the U.S. Marshals to go into that dangerous territory, hunt down murderers, rapists, bank robbers, bootleggers, and cattle rustlers, and bring some of the

West's most dangerous outlaws in for some cowboy-style justice. Bass quickly proved that he was more than up to the task. Reeves was initially assigned as a Deputy U.S. Marshal for the Western District of Arkansas, which also had responsibility for the Indian Territory. Reeves served in that district until 1893, when he transferred to the Eastern District of Texas in Paris, Texas. In 1897 he was transferred to the Muskogee Federal Court.
The Indian Territory boasted an unusual mix of peoples and cultures. It was the home of Indians, Indian Freedmen (the black slaves of the Indians who were emancipated after the Civil War and made citizens of the Five Tribes), white settlers and African-Americans who had formerly been slaves to white masters in the South who rented land from the Indians as sharecroppers, and finally, outlaws fleeing the law and squatting on the land.

So if a crime was a committed by an Indian and/or it involved a fellow Indian, it was handled by these tribal courts. Non-Freedmen blacks, whites, and Indians who committed a crime against a person who was not a citizen of the Indian nations had to be tried in the U.S. federal courts in Paris, Texas, and Fort Smith, Arkansas. And so the only U.S. law enforcement officers or judicial figures in Indian Territory were the U.S. Marshals, who rode for miles over the prairies, for months at a time, looking for wanted criminals to arrest and bring back to Fort Smith or Paris. This made the Indian Territory a highly desirable place for horse thieves, bootleggers, murderers and outlaws of all varieties to hide out and lay low. At the time, it was estimated that of the 22,000 whites living in Indian Territory, 17,000 of them were criminals. This was truly the Wild West, or as the saying of the time went, “No Sunday

West of St. Louis. No God West of Fort Smith.”
“Eighty miles west of Fort Smith was known as “the dead line,” and whenever a deputy marshal from Fort Smith or Paris, Texas, crossed the Missouri, Kansas & Texas track he took his own life in his hands and he knew it. On nearly every trail would be found posted by outlaws a small card warning certain deputies that if they ever crossed the dead line they would be killed. Reeves has a dozen of these cards which were posted for his special benefit. And in those days such a notice was no idle boast, and many an outlaw has bitten the dust trying to ambush a deputy on these trails.” -Oklahoma City newspaper article, 1907. Indian Territory was the most dangerous place for a U.S. Marshal to work then or ever. In the period before Oklahoma statehood, over one hundred marshals were killed in the line of duty. It helps to put that number in perspective: Since

the US Marshals Service was created in 1789, more than 200 marshals have been killed in the line of duty. 120 of those were killed in the Indian and Oklahoma territories before statehood in 1907. That’s right, half of all the U.S. marshals ever killed were killed in the Twin Territories. A man really had to have true grit to be a marshal at this time and in this place. Bass Reeves had that grit in spades.
Over the years Reeves gained a reputation for persistence, fearlessness. incredible marksmanship and the ability to outsmart lawbreakers, according to historical records.
Reeves stood 6’2 in a time when men were much shorter, and he had very broad shoulders and large hands. He was a giant among men. Such a large man needed an uncommonly large horse (“When you get as big as me, a small horse is as worthless as a preacher in a whiskey joint fight. Just when you need him bad to help you out, he’s got to stop and think about it a little bit.”). He rode the territories with two sixshooters, his trusty Winchester rifle, and a big black hat upon his head. Needless to say, Reeves cut an extremely imposing figure.
But it was his reputation more than his appearance that really struck fear in the hearts of the “bad men” of the territories. Contemporaries described Reeves as a “lawman second to none,” a man who was “absolutely fearless,” and a “terror to outlaws and desperados.” He was said to be the “most feared U.S marshal that was ever heard of in that country,” and his nickname was the “Invincible Marshal;” the undisputed king of narrow escapes, “at different times his belt was shot in two, a button shot off his coat, his hat brim shot off, and the bridle reins which he held in his hands cut by a bullet.” Going out on lone-wolf style missions deep into unknown territory, Reeves relied on his toughness and his wits to survive and bring his men to jus-
tice. He used tactics he had learned from the Seminoles to traverse vast distances quickly and leave no trace of his trail. He tracked his foes down, never backed away from a job no matter how many bounties or death threats were leveled at him, and never blinked in the face of extreme danger. In thirty years of service, Bass Reeves arrested over three thousand fugitives – including one trip to Comanche country when he single-handedly captured and brought in seventeen prisoners. He was also the man who took out the notorious bank robber and murderer Bob Dozier. Dozier had eluded capture from posses and lawmen for several years, but he wasn't quite as adept at eluding a gunshot wound to the brain from Bass Reeves.
Another famous Reeves arrest was Belle Starr, the "Bandit Queen of Dallas," who was a hard-drinkin', hard-ridin', hard-swearin', gunfightin' hardass who enjoyed gambling, wearing over-the-top outfits, sleeping around, and raking in cash hand-over-fist through an organized racket of horse thievery and stagecoach robbery. During her sixteenyear career as an outlaw, Bass Reeves was the only lawman to ever successfully apprehend her. It happened in 1882; some accounts claim Starr turned herself in when she heard that the legendary Reeves was looking for her. In 1889, after Reeves was assigned to Paris, Texas, he went after the Tom Story gang for their infamous horse theft operation.
Reeves reportedly waited along the route that Tom Story used, and surprised the gang leader with an arrest warrant. Story panicked and drew his gun, but Reeves shot him dead before Story could fire. The rest of the Tom Story gang disbanded and were never heard from again. Reeves later killed two of the murderous Brunter brothers and arrested the third. Here is an account of that encounter:
A lone rider came to a leisurely halt along the side of the dusty trail. Standing in his path were three of the deadliest outlaws in the Indian Territory – the
notorious Brunter brothers. These infamous murderers and thieves were the sort of copkilling fugitive bastards who would just as soon have immolated you with a blowtorch as urinated on your burning corpse. The men, all looking like they'd just stepped off the set of the movie Tombstone, pointed a multi-flavored assortment of shotguns and revolvers at the interloper, gesturing for him to dismount from his horse. The rider complied. Bass Reeves calmly took three steps towards the Brunter brothers, his grim face registering neither fear nor respect for these punks. He was an intimidating, serious-looking man, standing over six feet tall and solidly built. His clothes and equipment were nondescript, covered with the dust from several thousand miles of hard riding, hard fighting, and hard drinking. His beaten-up black hat and long black coat sported a variety of bullet holes and blood stains. The brass star proudly displayed on his lapel was tarnished with age. "What the hell are you doing out here, lawman?" the elder Brunter brother demanded.
Bass spit. "Well, I've come to arrest you," he said in the sort of nonchalant, matter-of-fact way that an evil mechanic tells you that you need a new transmission. "Got the warrant right here." He reached into his coat pocket, produced a worn, folded up piece of paper, and casually handed it to the elder brother.
The Brunters all looked at each other in disbelief. They couldn't believe the stupidity of the man standing before them to have admitted this fact as plainly as he had. Sure, they respected the fact he possessed what obviously must have been solid brass balls, but they were still definitely going to have to kill his ass. The eldest brother unfolded the warrant, and jokingly showed his brothers the lengthy list of serious charges leveled against them. The moment their collective eyes looked down towards the page, Reeves' right hand twitched ever so slightly. Then, in a flash, he closed his fingers

While I hate to be a nitpicker, Mr. Morrow should be a little more accurate regarding the death of actor James Dean. There are still too many people who have memories of that tragic day. James Dean was driving west on highway 46 (then called 466) from highway 99 through Lost Hills, CA. Mr. Dean was killed at the junction of highway 46 and highway 41 very near Cholame, CA. which is 25+ miles east of Paso Robles. Mr. Morrow’s stated Dean was highway 101 in direction to Paso so.

Mayor’s Town Hall Meeting in Escondido Lists Accomplishments
Escondido Mayor Sam Abed held a Town Hall Meeting last Wednesday, October 9th, during which he outlined some points that he claimed showed the city was growing and the problems were on their way to being solved. He pointed to the opening of two new restaurants, Swami’s Café and Plan 9 Alehouse, in the downtown area, the Cheese Factory and Black Angus at Westfield Shopping Center, the opening a new Wal Mart on East Valley Parkway with 215 new jobs, the opening of John Paul the Great University and the jobs created there as well as the traffic from its students, and the celebration of Escondido’s 125th Anniversary. He pointed out the importance of the series of meetings dealing with the redistricting of city council election districts and urged residents to attend, provide input, and also to learn. He also proudly reported a $1.3 million surplus - and pointed out a turnaround, under his administration, from a deficit of $15.6 million deficit to a $5.9 million surplus. (The $1.3 million surplus being from the end of fiscal year ending June 30, 2013.) He illustrated how out of a total budge of $81,891,615,
that $ 9,024,950 was allocated for the Center for the Arts, LIbrary and Recreation, and the largest amount, $55,620,365, was earmarked for Police and Fire. Approximately $12.7 million was used for Public Works and Community Planning and their respective departments, leaving a balance of $8,118,440 available for general government use, i.e., City Council, City Manager, City Attorney, City Clerk, and other city departments. The Town Hall Meeting was attended by approximately 60 people, was generally civil in tone but featured a number of lengthy questions and even lengthier answers. One audience member, Nancy Burian, irritated other audience members when she went on at length with a series of questions which a very patient Mayor allowed to continue until a number of audience members protested at the lengthy question by the lady.
Only one question came up about former Police Chief Jim Maher. Abed answereed in three parts, one of which included the offer to open up the complete file on the case if Maher would only give permission. After this, Abed said he would answer no further questions on the Maher matter . . .

Man About Town
This past Saturday we decided it was time to get Ms. Evelyn out of the office and take in some sunshine and ocean breezes . . . so we packed up our two pups, my cousin, Doug Leverenz, and headed for the beach.
We thought it might be fun to rent a sailboat go sailing on the bounding main the following day, Sunday, as long as (a) we could find a 21’ sloop to rent, and (b) find someone to sail the boat.

We learned from Monte Yearley of Yearley Yacht Sales that he had a sailboat . . . but it
All was not lost, however. We drove through the beachfront area of Oceanside, admiring the tidy, clean homes and marveled at how much they cost. Even a tiny matchbox of a house on the coast will run a small fortune, often approaching and/or exceeding a million of those green sheets of papers called dollars.
in spite of the fact the Agenda Item was listed as an “Open Forum,” and any and all questions would be entertained. The meeting ended without incident after approximately one hour. Temporary Closure of Washington Avenue in Escondido
Washington Avenue between Juniper and Broadway in Escondido will be closed beginning Monday, October 21, 2013 at 8:00 p.m. until approximately 5:00 a.m. on Tuesday, October 22, 2013 to complete emergency pavement repairs resulting from a recent water main break. Traffic control and detour signage will be placed to assist motorists around the construction area. As always with work of this nature, unanticipated problems may delay the completion of the work. Motorists are advised to choose alternate routes and to avoid the area if possible during the scheduled construction. Freeway Shooting in Oceanside

Speaking of restaurants, and I just was, there’s another restaurant in Escondido that is extra special . . . not the least of which is because of “Charlie’s Angels.” We speak of Charlie’s Restaurant, at 210 N. Ivy.
We met Evelyn’s youngest son, Marty, and his girl friend, Kim, left the pups with Marty’s dog, Klyde, and headed back to Vista to have a feast at the Sizzler.
There is a vacant Sizzler restaurant in Escondido. Beautiful location, lots of parking, all the restaurant fixtures are there . . . but no owner or operator. If I were 35 years younger I would beg, borrow or steal the money to get the Sizzler franchise for Escondido. It’s a grand restaurant. Food is great, prices are fair, service excellent . . . we’ve never been disappointed with a Sizzler meal. Dunno why Escondido’s Sizzler closed. It always eemed busy when we visited. Rent too

Both bullets hit home, sending two Brunters spinning into a dance of death. The eldest brother pointed his gun at the lawman's head, but before he could fire it Bass Reeves was on him. Reeves grabbed the man's revolver with one hand, redirected the weapon so it was pointing up into the air, and then proceeded to pistol-whip the dude unconscious with his free hand. In the span of about twenty seconds, the toughest U.S. Marshal West of the Mississippi had just taken out three of the Indian Territory's deadliest criminals.
Despite the fact that he spent much of his life drilling folks in the head with bullets, Reeves' service record was utterly stainless. He killed fourteen men in gunfights – more than Wyatt Earp, Doc Holliday, Billy the Kid, and Wild Bill Hickok - and wounded dozens

Reeves worked for thirty-two years as a Federal peace officer in the Indian Territory. He was one of Judge Parker's most valued deputies. Reeves brought in some of the most dangerous criminals of the time, but was never wounded, despite having his hat and belt shot off on separate occasions.
One of his sons was charged with the murder of his wife. Marshal Reeves was disturbed and shaken by the incident but demanded to accept the responsibility of bringing his son to justice. His son was eventually tracked and captured, tried and convicted. He served his time in Ft.

Mayor Sam: "None. None whatsoever." (That was the answer. It should have stopped there. It didn't. Sam went on for another eight minutes. This was replicated throughout the evening.)
Only one question came up about former Police Chief Jim Maher. Abed answered in three parts, one of which included the offer to open up the complete file on the case if Maher would only give permission. After this, Abed said he would answer no further questions on the Maher matter . . . which, I thought, pretty much negated the "open forum" format, allowing any and all questions. The meeting was quite civil with one lady, Escondido resident Nancy Burian, who went on and on and on and on . . . and Abed patiently waiting for her to finish her point(s) - at one point several members of the audience behind me began "shusshing" her; she clearly had spoken too long. Mayor Sam is a lot more patient than

I would have been. The lady overstayed her welcome.
That wasn't unusual, however, several members of the audience asked waaaaay too long of a question . . . and Mayor Sam heard them out.
Mayor Sam did acknowledge me, and The Paper, when, after pointing out he and his administration had reversed a deficit to a surplus of $8 million. "I want to see that on the front page of The Paper," he said, with a smile, later saying, "obviously, with that statement I was speaking to lyle." And he said it with a smile.
Long meeting . . . for me, a boring meeting . . . but, really, the best part about the meeting was not the anticipated histrionics, which never happened, but Sam's briefing on the city accomplishments, how he and his fellow council members had turned the city's financial situation around . . . and how they intended to continue that progress.

Those of us old enough to remember know that Bill Haley and the Comets crashed onto the music scene in 1955, with "Rock Around The Clock." While it has been said he was the first, the term "Rock 'n' Roll" was coined by Cleveland Dee-Jay Alan Freed back in 1951, as his way of describing the black rhythm and blues records he was playing. Other music historians, however, challenge the Bill Haley notion by pointing out that Elvis Presley first recorded "That's All Right" in 1954. While either story is arguable,

no one disputes the fact that Presley was the "King of Rock 'n' Roll." He had a unique ability to combine the rhythms of black gospel, soul, and blues with smoldering sex appeal. He became a world-wide sensation.
Elvis recorded 18 No. 1 hits, 38 top-10 hits, and 104 top-40 hits until his untimely death in 1977. During his career, he was displaced only by the British hit rock group, The Beatles, who credit a lot of their style to Elvis. Today, when we hear a radio station playing the "Golden Oldies," more than likely it won't be Glenn Miller's "Moonlight Serenade," or Artie Shaw's "Begin the Beguine," rather it will be the hits of Elvis, The Beatles, Credence Clearwater, the Rolling Stones and The Who.
To that point, I was playing a gig with my combo a couple of years ago for a dance at the Encinitas Senior Center when a woman in her sixties came up

to the bandstand to ask if we would play some rock 'n' roll. We were playing mostly the big band stuff, so I thought it strange that a woman her age would want rock 'n' roll. Then it hit me. I was a freshman in high school when Bill Haley and Elvis hit the music scene and this woman was at least 5 years younger than me. Of course she wanted rock 'n' roll.

How to Destroy your Notebook
Notebook PCs (laptops) are a wonderful convenience and indispensable for mobile applications. You can perform tasks while traveling, move about the area without having to be physically connected (wired) or you can use them as portable workstations between home, work or school. It’s a mistake to regard a notebook as simply a desktop that you can take places. Notebook PCs are more vulnerable to mechanical failure and far more expensive to fix.
Some components like RAM and hard drives are no more expensive to upgrade or replace but screens, keyboards, power supplies and motherboards are
Providing Homes for Those Who Have Sacrificed to Protect Ours
Last week, Governor Brown signed AB 639, legislation to provide housing aide to California veterans.
By passing AB 639, the legislature and governor are making a commitment to help low-income veterans in need. This bill will allocate money to develop housing space for veterans by building multi-family affordable housing complexes. A few years ago, I authored veteran housing legislation that placed an initiative on the ballot and was passed by California voters. The initiative established bond funding to help veterans access homeownership. While the need for housing is signifi-
far more expensive to replace on notebooks. Spill a Coke on your desktop keyboard and replace it for ten dollars. The Coke spill on your notebook usually means a new keyboard and motherboard, an expense of several hundred dollars.
Hard drive failures are a common problem in notebooks. At 7200 RPMs the outer edge is spinning at 80MPH. Moving your notebook while the hard drive is spinning can cause problems. If you tilt the notebook out of the horizontal plane, the “gyroscope” (spinning hard drive) will try to force itself back into its original plane of rotation (usually horizontal). This exerts strain on the hard drive bearings and mounting hardware. If you must move your notebook while the hard drive is spinning, move it slowly and keep it as close to horizontal as possible. Any movement while the hard drive is spinning can cause the read/write head to bounce off the disc surface and damage the disc or the head. This occurs frequently because users turn off the computer, slam down the lid and put it away before the notebook finishes shutting down.
(like a pencil), carrying it by the screen, allowing the power adaptor to put strain on the PC power connector and careless insertion of plug-ins like USB, HDMI, Ethernet, headphones etc.
Heat is the deadly enemy of your notebook. Using it at a location where its air intake or exhaust is blocked can cause rapid temperature elevation and premature death for components. Using your notebook on your lap or in bed can restrict airflow. Allowing dust and lint to accumulate on the fans and air vents can also contribute to heat stress.
Some other ways to abuse your notebook are by closing the case with an object on the keyboard
cant, very few veterans have taken advantage of this home-buying assistance.
AB 639 is a compromise that will maintain the original goal of the bond funds while creating a new use. This bill will repurpose some of the unused money to construct new housing for veterans who are looking for an opportunity to rent.
I believe this is the right policy decision. It is shameful that so many veterans are homeless and this bill is the least we can do for those who have done so much for our country.

There is a strong correlation between notebook quality and longevity. In our experience, notebooks from manufacturers like Lenovo, Acer, ASUS and Toshiba hold up better than those from companies like Dell and HP, who simply buy their products from Asian manufacturers. The best way to destroy your laptop is to loan it out. Brotherin-law, sister, nephew, your kids, grandkids, friends, neighbors, it doesn’t matter. Whether they use it for an hour, a day or a month chances are it will come back with problems. Don’t ask us why. It’s just one of Murphy’s Laws.
California’s Coming Boom
The United States is on the road to energy independence. We are projected to surpass Russia as the world’s largest natural gas producer by 2015 and by 2017, we are expected to become the world’s largest oil producer as well.
California is the nation’s fourth largest crude oil producer, behind Alaska, Texas and Louisiana. Our state’s oil reserves include an estimated 64% of all U.S. shale oil reserves. A recent University of Southern California study concluded that exploitation of California’s oil shale could create up to 2.8 million jobs by 2020 and add $25 billion to state coffers.
highest in the nation. This adds to the cost of doing business in California and is likely a contributing factor to our high unemployment rate of 8.9%. Since almost all crude oil produced in California is refined in California, exploiting our vast oil reserves would have an immediate, beneficial impact on our sluggish economy, as well as California’s long-term fiscal solvency.
In any endeavor of this type, the environment will have to be safeguarded. After all, California remains a nationwide example of environmental l e a d e r s h i p . Environmentally friendly ways to tap California’s oil reserves must be considered in any serious effort Despite the recent that seeks to reestablish decrease in the cost of our state as an engine of gasoline, California’s gas economic growth and prices remain among the nationwide prosperity.

11. You will cease playing American football. There is only one kind of proper football; you call it soccer. Those of you brave enough will, in time, be allowed to play rugby (which has some similarities to American football, but does not involve stopping for a rest every twenty seconds or wearing full kevlar body armour like a bunch of nancies).
12. Further, you will stop playing baseball. It is not reasonable to host an event called the World Series for a game which is not played outside of America. Since only 2.1% of you are aware there is a world beyond your borders, your error is understandable. You will learn cricket, and we will let you face the South Africans first to take the sting out of their deliveries. 13.. You must tell us who killed JFK. It's been driving us mad.
14. An internal revenue agent (i.e. tax collector) from Her Majesty's Government will be with you shortly to ensure the acquisition of all monies due (backdated to 1776).

The nurse puts her on the scale. It turns out her weight is 140 . The nurse asks, 'Your height?' ' 5 foot 8,' she says.
The nurse checks and sees that she only measures 5' 5'.
She then takes her blood pressure and tells the woman it is very high. 'Of course it's high!' she screams, 'When I came in here I was tall and slender! Now I'm short and fat!'

Pastor Hal Seed New Song Community Church Oceanside Grand Opening for Church in a Movie Theater
Downtown Oceanside is experiencing something of a revival, as New Song Seaside Church begins its Grand Opening services at the Regal Theater there.
Over 150 people were part of the initial service, held October 6. Mayor Jim Wood was one of them. Wood welcomed the new church to town and sketched his vision for Oceanside’s future. How does church happen in a movie theater? Adults meet for worship in one of the multi-plex theaters, while children have their own worship experience in another. Both benefit from full
Pastor Wes Coddington couldn’t be more excited about what is going on. “Our country is going through some struggles right now, but there is hope happening in Oceanside!” People are making new friends and finding their way back to God.”
Coddington, a former business trainer, moved his family to Oceanside because “God called us. I can’t explain it. I just know we’re where we’re supposed to be.” Coddington’s warm and personal communication style flows out of a depth of life experiences. Wes has had two kidney transplants. He and his wife Karen believe God saved him to do what he is doing now: bringing new life to Oceanside. Seaside’s Grand Opening theme is Building a Great Life. The Grand Opening continues from Oct. 6 to Nov. 11, with barbecues after most Sunday services. Church is held Sundays, at 9:30 a.m.
