(Our grandson, Andrew, is a U.S. Army second lieutenant, serving with the military police in Germany. In his unit is Sergeant Jessica Hager, who by a remarkable coincidence is from the same city of Yucaipa where my wife and I live.
We arranged to meet Sgt. Hager when she came home recently on furlough, and we enjoyed meeting this vivacious young woman, who told us she The Paper - 760.747.7119

was planning to make the Army her career.
Impressed by her dedication, I decided to find out about women in the military, and the following is what I learned.)
By the time World War II ended, there were 400,000 women in the U.S. military and they assisted in every branch of our military. In September 1942, on the suggestion of the president’s wife, Eleanor Roosevelt, a women’s
ferrying squadron was formed.
All the women selected had to be experienced pilots. After a forty-day orientation, the women pilots began flying airplanes from factories to Army Air Corp bases around the U.S.. During the war, the 1,074 women pilots flew every type of plane—from 9-47 Thunderbolt fighters to B-29 bombers, flying more miles than their male counterparts who were in combat. But in their line of duty the women pilots paid a consider-
able price: thirty-eight pilots killed and thirty-two injured.
Most women in our military were nurses. The Army Nurse Corps, established in 1901, was the oldest female branch in the U.S. military. In World War II there were more than 57,000 Army nurses. Although officially nurses have been noncombatants, they took part in the invasions of North Africa, Sicily, Italy and Normandy.

Hitting the beach of the Algerian coast, an Army nurse remembered, “It was horrible gazing down at the swaying ladder, our helmets like iron on our heads, full packs on our backs…Suddenly there was an especially heavy explosion and then somehow we were in the landing boat. And I thought, if Florence Nightingale could see us now!”
In the Pacific, Army nurses had to cope with the same jungle environment as the men— 100-degree temperatures; suffocating humidity, torrential rains; knee-deep mud; constant swarms of mosquitoes that settled on their food in thick clusters; leeches; poisonous snakes; and high jungle grass that sliced human flesh like a razor blade. And it was a similar environment that Army nurses found themselves in while serving in Vietnam. Major Eunice Splawn, along with other Army nurses, worked with male nurses. During a Viet Cong

attack in Da Nang, American casualties were heavy. “In just one day,” she recalled, “we handled more than one hundred and six patients.” Lieutenant Kathleen Cordova, also an Army nurse in Vietnam, worked at an evacuation hospital near Saigon.
On a steady basis, Marines and Army soldiers were brought to the hospital, and with the arrival of each batch, Cordova had to steel herself.
Cordova remembered, “I put too many of these young men in black body bags. And often there were only pieces of them— arms, legs and other body parts…The last sound I heard was the sound of the zipper. Each time I would go out in the back and cry my eyes out. Then I’d come back and do it all over again.” In Vietnam, eight Army nurses were killed, and in World War II, two hundred and fifteen lost their lives.
As for Navy nurses in World War II: at the start of the war, Navy nurses numbered 787; by

Let's face it - English is a crazy language.
There is no egg in eggplant, nor ham in hamburger; neither apple nor pine in pineapple. English muffins weren't invented in England or French fries in France. Sweetmeats are candies while sweetbreads, which aren't sweet, are meat. We take English for granted. But if we explore its paradoxes, we find that quicksand can work slowly, boxing rings are square and a guinea pig is neither from Guinea nor is it a pig. And why is it that writers write but fingers don't fing, grocers don't groce and hammers don't ham? If the plural
the war’s end, their number had reached 11,086.
More than 1,200 Navy nurses served overseas in land hospitals and on hospital ships. By the end of the war, the Navy had fifteen of these ships in the Pacific, and Navy nurses staffed twelve of them (the other three ships had male medics). A total of forty Navy nurses in Europe and the Pacific died in the line of duty.
In addition to serving in combat zones, women also took positions in administrative work that Army men had been doing, thus freeing up ablebodied men for combat duty. Originally formed in May 1942, as the Women’s Auxiliary Army Corps (WAACs), the women were assigned to replace men as clerks, mechanics, typists, cooks, and drivers, as well as working in other capacities.
Then, ten months later, in January, 1943, Congress gave the WAACs expanded responsibilities and a new name— Women’s Army Corp (WACs) of tooth is teeth, why isn't the plural of booth, beeth? One goose, 2 geese. So one moose, 2 meese? One index, 2 indices? Doesn't it seem crazy that you can make amends but not one amend? If you have a bunch of odds and ends and get rid of all but one of them, what do you call it? If teachers taught, why didn't preachers praught? If a vegetarian eats vegetables, what does a humanitarian eat? Sometimes I think all the English speakers should be committed to an asylum for the verbally insane. In what language do people recite at a play and play at a recital? Ship by truck and send cargo by ship? Have noses that run and feet that smell?
How can a slim chance and a fat chance be the same, while a wise man and a wise guy are opposites? You have to marvel at the unique lunacy of a language in which your house can burn up as it burns down, in which you fill in a form by filling it out and in which, an alarm goes off by going on.
English was invented by people, not computers, and it reflects the creativity of the human race, which, of course, is not a race at all. That is why, when the stars are out, they are visible, but when the lights are out, they are invisible.
and 40,000 of the original 100,000 were assigned for duty with the Army Air Force and trained as radio operators, code instructors and airplane mechanics. Meanwhile, in July 1942, the Navy had established its own women’s component: Women Accepted for Voluntary Emergency Service (WAVES). Within a year, there were nearly 4,000 Wave offices and 21,000 enlisted WAVES. They worked in a wide variety of positions, including control tower operators, instructors in celestial navigation, and as gunnery and simulated flight trainers.
The contribution the WAVES made to the war was not without cost. Seven women officers and sixty-two enlisted women died in the line of duty. In November 1942, the Coast Guard also joined in with a women’s unit: SPARS, the Coast Guard’s acronym for the Service’s motto, Semper Paratus, Always Prepared.

PS. - Why doesn't 'Buick' rhyme with 'quick' ?
You lovers of the English language might enjoy this .. There is a two-letter word that perhaps has more meanings than any other two-letter word, and that is 'UP.'
It's easy to understand UP, meaning toward the sky or at the top of the list, but when we awaken in the morning, why do we wake UP? At a meeting, why does a topic come UP? Why do we speak UP and why are the officers UP for election and why is it UP to the secretary to write UP a report? We call UP our friends. And we use it to brighten UP a room, polish UP the silver; we warm UP the leftovers and clean UP the kitchen. We lock UP the house and some guys fix UP the old car. At other times the little word has real special meaning.
People stir UP trouble, line UP for tickets, work UP an appetite, and think UP excuses. To be dressed is one thing, but to be dressed UP is special. A drain must be opened UP because it is stopped UP. We open UP a store in the morning but we close it UP at night.

‘Women . . In Combat’ Cont. from Page 2 Then in February 1943 the Marine Corps Women’s Reserve (MCWR) was established, and before the war ended there were nearly 3,000 women Marines. From the onset of women joining the Marines, the Marine Commandant, General Thomas Holcomb made it clear. “The women don’t have cute names, like WACS or WAVES . They get their basic training at a Marine post. They inherit the traditions of Marines. They are Marines.”
For women who wanted to join the Marine Corps Women’s Reserve, there were strict qualifications. They had to be U.S. citizens; not married to a Marine; have no children under age 18; be at least five feet tall; weigh at least 95 pounds; and have good vision and good teeth. The age limits for enlisted women were 20 to 35, with at least two years of high school. For officers, the age limits were 20 to 49. Officer candidates needed a college degree or a combination of college and work experience. In time, the Marine Corps relented and the wives of enlisted Marines were accepted into the Women’s Reserve.
Officers were trained at the Navy schools in Massachusetts, while enlisted women received their initial training at Hunter College in New York City, and then they were shipped to the largest Marine training base on the East Coast, Camp Lejeune, North Carolina. There, shouting NCOs (non-commissioned officers) herded the women into crowded buses and took them to austere barracks that had toilet stalls without doors and group shower rooms. The women stared in shock and disappointment.
But in time, the Corps improved the quality of living for the women Marines: for privacy, toilet stalls had doors and showers had curtains. Marines had mixed feelings about these arrangements for women, but Marine commanders were proud to guide visitors
and dignitaries through the immaculate women’s barracks. In time, the Marines came to appreciate the considerable number of jobs carried out by the women Marines, which included working as radio operator, rigging parachutes, driving large Marine vehicles and working as simulated flight instructors. In World War II, and in wars prior to that war, women were rarely in combat. As dictated by military policy, their jobs kept them mostly away from enemy lines. But all this changed and changed big-time in Iraq and Afghanistan.
In these two wars, tens of thousands of American military women lived, worked and fought alongside of men. And they fought with the same level of courage and effectiveness as men.
Lizette Alvarez, a correspondent for the New York Times, reported in August 2009, American women in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars “have done nearly as much in battle as their male counterparts.” And John Nagl, a retired colonel and the president of a military research institute in Washington, D.C., said, “We literally could not have fought the Itaq war without women.” Many American women ended up in combat as a result of being “attached” to a combat unit to search Iraqi and Afghan women for weapons. Only female troops were allowed to do this because of Islamic restrictions on malefemale contacts.
Both men and women have paid a great price in the Afghanistan and Iraq wars. The total number of casualties for both wars was 4, 570 men killed in combat and 32,799 wounded, and 139 women were killed in enemy action and 783 were wounded. There have been many accounts of American men in combat. What follows are some accounts of women in combat, in their own words.
Sergeant Chantel Razak: “We deployed with an infantry company in Iraq. We lived with them; we ate with them; we
patrolled with them. Then we had our first casualty. Our platoon leader had his face torn off, and his legs were shredded. I remember standing at the gun, crying while I’m shooting. Then later, my platoon leader is tugging at my pants, as he was lying on a stretcher below me. “He says, “I can’t feel my legs.” I looked and then said, “We’ve got you, sir and we’re getting you home. You’ll be okay.” And we held hands and cried. A lot of us broke down. I know me, personally, I didn’t want to talk about it. I just said, ‘We’re going to go back there and kick some ass. We were going to get them for what they did to ours.’” Army Specialist Veronica Alfaro: “That night outside of Baghdad, I was the gunner because we were short a soldier. Our convoy was about halfway to our destination when we hit a spot in the road where we have to really slow down. I have the night-vision goggle on one eye, and all of a sudden I can hear these loud snaps right by my head. I dropped down, and I was like, ‘Shit. Here we go.’ I started returning fire with my smaller weapons, and then I could see, far away in the brush, muzzle flashes. So I started unloading the .50 cal, and I just let it rock. I can’t even describe the feeling I had. Round for round, you’re shooting back and forth, It was insane. Then the muzzle flashes stopped. The thing about that story is, nobody believed me. Some of the senior leadership thought I made it up just so I could shoulder the gun. The next morning, when the sun came up, the guys who didn’t believe me were climbing all over the truck looking for where bullets maybe hit. Sure enough, a bullet had taken a chunk out of the protective glass of the turret— just a little bit over and that thing would have smacked me square in the fucking chest. After that, nobody said anything to me anymore. When they gave me the Combat Action Badge, there were some other people who also got awards—all guys. There’s a

Letters to the Editor
Escondido Voting Districts
At first I favored the idea of creating voting districts in Escondido because I believed this would create a City Council more responsive to the needs of the citizens as well as to make it more affordable for folks to run for office. However, press releases suggest special interest groups seek to gerrymander districts favoring their causes. Country club area residents don’t want their area divided. The ACLU and Latino activists apparently want at least one large district based exclusively upon ethnicity. Mobile home park residents have come forward to plead for their own district. This is all utter nonsense!
Escondido is a homogeneous community comprised of many races, political and religious points of view. All citizens can be fairly served by simply creating four districts based upon relatively equal population with geographic boundaries that protect our property rights. One district will naturally end up with a larger number of Latinos who will gain more voice in government. That’s the way it’s supposed to be. No sensible person would establish boundaries that would bisect the country club area open space. No matter what happens mobile home residents are not going to have any less protection than they now possess. Voting district boundaries should be fair to all residents, not just special interest groups. /s/Sid Colquitt Escondido, CA.
Who Controls City Parks?
Our grandson spent a week with us over the summer, while attending à soccer camp. The camp ended on à Friday.

Former Army and Navy Academy Administrator Arrested for Sexual Molestation. Additional Victims Sought.
On Oct. 17th shortly after 5 p.m., the City of Carlsbad Police Department arrested Jeffery S. Barton, a former administrator for the Army and Navy Academy. The academy is located at 2605 Carlsbad Blvd. in the city of Carlsbad. Officers arrested Barton, 56, of Oceanside, for the sexual molestation of at least six former students whom he mentored. Barton was employed by the academy from 1995 until 2013 and was the Head of Schools.
The department, in collaboration with the Army and Navy Academy, is attempting to identify and locate any additional victims who have been involved in or witnesses who have knowledge of inappropriate behavior by Barton. Victims and witnesses are asked to call the police department hotline 760-931-2276. The investigation began in June of 2013 when a victim, now an adult, reported past sexual abuse by Barton to the police department. Since that time, police investigators have worked persistently to develop a comprehensive case by collecting evidence, following leads and identifying addition-

One of the reasons we at The Paper love Dr. Greg Hurt of San Marcos so much is (a) he’s a brilliant dentist and (b) he gives a lot back to the community.
Thanksgiving is not far away and already Dr. Hurt has made arrangements to receive food and other items for this holiday season. One of his patients, Rosa Davis, coordinates the food drive in assocation with The Gleaning Field (760.945.1003) and the Living Faith Church (760.599.7025).

“Protecting children is the police department’s highest priority,” said City of Carlsbad Police Chief Gary Morrison. “We are equally outraged by the possibility of such a crime occurring in our community. We take any report of this nature very seriously, and we are using every available resource in our investigation.” Barton was booked into the Vista Detention Facility with a $2.1 million bail.
Investigators have been working closely with the San Diego County District Attorney’s Office and anticipate Barton will be charged with 16 felony counts in connection with the molestation of the students. The arraignment was currently scheduled for Tuesday, Oct. 22. The investigation is ongoing.

Parkway and Decatur. Checkpoints are placed in locations that have the greatest opportunity for achieving drunk and drugged driving deterrence and provide the greatest safety for officers and the public.
Following are results from this event: Ø 1,359 vehicles drove through the checkpoint. Ø 733 vehicles were screened in primary. Ø 1 Field Sobriety Test was conducted, resulting in no DUI arrests. Ø 59 vehicles were sent to secondary screening (drivers who could not produce a driver’s license or who were suspected of being under the influence of alcohol or drugs) Ø 25 total citations were issued during the checkpoint. (5 for suspended license and 17 for unlicensed driver, 8 for no insurance.) DUI/Drivers License checkpoints have been shown to lower DUI deaths and injuries. A major component of these checkpoints is the deterrent effect it has on those who might drive drunk or drug impaired, bringing about more awareness and encouraging everyone to use sober designated drivers.

Not only does she keep one upto-date on the latest agenda items but if she has an opinion she will so state, and provide documenation to back up her argument.
It’s a place of civil discussion on and about our city government and its leaders, both elected and appointed. If you are interested in Escondido politics, it’s a must read.

Devin has had a lot of battles to fight for such a little guy. He’s only three years old (as of Monday, October 21st) and he’s been through hell for those three years. Devin has spent a lot of time at Seattle’s Children’s Hospital where he has been fighting the Big C, cancer, for most of those three years. Bone marrow transplants, constant chemo, constant exams, constant blood work, all kinds of experiences a little boy should not have to endure.

Yesterday, at the Street Faire, I ran into the parents of one of the boys whose son was involved in this. They told me a friend of theirs looked into the situation. This friend contacted the City Council. Ed Gallo and Olga Diaz checked into the situation and found out it would be possible to get the gate open for kids to play.
Then the City Manager got involved and reversed that decision. That prompted me to write this. I need to know the following: 1. Why is a public park locked? 2.

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.

Pastor Huls is not only a fascinating speaker but is a beekeeper, hunter, fisherman, gardener, explorer, world traveler, community activist, and, even though formally retired, still pastors a nice flock of congregants at the plush North County Retirement community of Fair Winds - Ivey Ranch. We have journeyed over on several Sundays to hear Pastor Huls speak and have never been disappointed. I’ve mentioned here before that he has spoken to our Hidden Valley Kiwanis Club at least six or seven times; he’s that popular.
As for Don Heller . . . we don’t see nearly enough of him. He’s pretty much semi-retired from the auto business, letting his son, D. J., do most of the heavy lifting. Don has hunted and fished all over the world, having earned more than a few frequent flyer miles.

Former CEO Art Gonzalez was similarly fired in 2008, replaced by Anderson.
The current board voted 6-0 to fire Anderson with Rose Marie Reno excused from the closed session.
Many observers are waiting for the other shoe to drop, recognizing that Anderson, a trained attorney, may well decide to pursue litigation. If, indeed, litigation is pursued, then possibly the public will learn from the evidence the reasons Anderson was fired.

It’s a hard landing. We start taking heavier fire on my side of the aircraft. One of the patients on board, a female, is hysterical, and my gunner says to me, ‘This is why they shouldn’t let women on these kinds of convoys.’ I look at him. I’m armed. I’m covered in blood, and I’m like, ‘Are you fucking kidding me?

Local Woman Served in Combat Zone
Not a lot of people know this but Paulette Donellon, the distinguished Trustee representing the Escondido Union School District Board of Education in Area 3, served in a combat zone.
Paulette served in Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates for three months in 1991. When she boarded the plane taking her overseas she was headed for the Desert Shield operation; mid-air, it changed to Desert Storm.
“Our plane had to turn around and head back to Zaragosa, Spain,” she said. “We had two

We seem to be pretty mixed UP about UP!
To be knowledgeable about the proper uses of UP, look the word UP in the dictionary. In a desk-sized dictionary, it takes UP almost 1/4th of the page and can add UP to about thirty definitions. If you are UP to it, you might try building UP a list of the many ways UP is used. It will take UP a lot of your time, but if you don't give UP, you may wind UP with a hundred or more. When it threatens to rain, we say it is clouding UP. When the sun comes out we say it is clearing UP. When it rains, it wets the earth and often messes things UP. When it doesn't rain for awhile, things dry UP.

A Man Dining Alone
by Tom Morrow
A man was dining alone in a fancy restaurant and there was a gorgeous redhead sitting at the next table. He had been checking her out since he sat down, but lacked the nerve to talk with her.
Suddenly she sneezed, and her glass eye came flying out of its socket towards the man. He reflexively reached out, grabbed it out of the air, and handed it back. 'Oh my, I am so sorry,' the woman said, as she popped her eye back in place. 'Let me buy your dinner to make it up to you.'
They enjoyed a wonderful dinner together, and afterwards they went to the theatre followed by drinks ... they talked, they laughed, she shared her deepest dreams and he shared his. She listened to him with interest.
After paying for everything, she asked him if he would like to come to her place for a nightcap and stay for breakfast. They had a wonderful, wonderful time. The next morning, she cooked

The Rise and Fall of Napoleon
Just as the power of Adolf Hitler was created following World War I by the Treaty of Versailles, which left Germany stripped of its military, manufacturing, and national pride, plunging it into economic chaos, Napoleon Bonaparte emerged as emperor of France following the chaos of the French Revolution. After King Louis XVI and his wife, Marie Antoinette, were executed, chaos reigned over France. Neighboring nations such as Austria, Prussia (Germany), Spain, and Great Britain declared war on France.

"Reign of Terror" during which much of France's aristocracy and leaders had been executed or imprisoned, a young artillery officer quickly rose through the ranks capturing the hearts of his countrymen much as he had overwhelmed his enemies on the field of battle. Napoleon was quick to capitalize on his popularity. He became known as “The Little Corporal,” which referred to where he started in the Grand Army and his short stature.
Firmly in control of the army, which meant he controlled the nation, in 1804, Napoleon was crowned Emperor of France. During the coronation ceremony in Paris' historic Notre Dame cathedral, the Little Corporal did something that shocked everyone witnessing the ceremony: just as the pope was about to place the crown on his head, Napoleon grabbed it and put it on himself. He would later explain that no mortal man was above the Emperor, so how could anyone but Napoleon himself place the crown?
With Napoleon firmly in control of what would soon become the most powerful army in Europe, France went on the offensive, conquering nearly all

The Doctor is In! “adapt” to it, and often these dentures can be unstable. Is there some better alternative that can give us a stable replacement of our missing teeth but not cost an arm and a leg? Price is the million dollar question for those who are retired and on a fixed income. Fortunately, now there is an alternative that provides us with stable dentition without the tremendous cost of having fixed bridges done, or an array of implants. Implant Retained Overdentures
Implant Retained Overdentures for the CostConscious Patient As the Baby Boomer generation gets older our health-care costs increase, including dental care. With the advent of reliable implants we can “rebuild” our mouths, however, at times with considerable expense.
On the other hand, replacement of missing teeth with a denture (of which there are 55 million wearers in the U.S. alone) sometimes results in a less than comfortable appliance requiring us to
These will cost more than a conventional denture, but run much less than fixed bridges that require many implants. Normally only 4 (sometimes 5 to 6) implants are used to support an overdenture which lowers your cost dramatically. The denture is specially designed to lock onto the implants so that they won’t come lose when you’re eating, laughing, etc. (Use your imagination!) Yet, they can be removed for cleaning and are very hygienic. Actually, they’re easier to keep clean than fixed bridges supported by implants. Less Bone Requirements Drive Down Costs
When doing implant supported crowns and bridges, we need solid
bone structure throughout the arch, and frequently have to charge our patients for bone “augmentation” (addition of bone) to areas with insufficient bone to support the implant structure. I mplant Retained Overdentures require using less implants for support and we can “adjust” the placement of our implants into areas where the bone is most dense, often reducing or eliminating bone augmentation. Since the cost of augmentation can run anywhere from $450$800 or more per unit, that’s a big advantage both by avoiding surgery … and cutting costs! Care and Handling
Overdentures are “removable.” Most of our patients don’t like the idea of “removable” teeth. However, if you’re already in that boat, or headed that way, remember it’s easier and more thorough to remove and brush your teeth
and gums than it is to clean a fixed bridge in your mouth. As for placing them back into your mouth, overdentures literally “snap” back into place with stability and security. Price
In the final analysis, if you’re faced with some major rehabilitation of your dentition or in need of a stable denture, Implant Retained Overdentures is an attractive option! Cost is almost always a serious consideration whenever it comes to choosing your dental treatment options! An Important Money-Saving Reminder!
As the end of the year nears it’s important to use whatever dental benefits your insurance plan offers before they expire! We can help you plan your end of year dental treatment and help you apply it to your dental insurance benefits.

“Several times I actually saw a SCUD intercepted by a Patriot missile. On our second night in Saudi Arabia there were four of us women, sitting around on ammo cans for chairs, playing the card game “Uno.” We were really comfortable. Then the sky lit up. We looked up and then there was a huge explosion, shaking the ground. That was a SCUD missile that had just been intercepted by a Patriot missile. We had to dash back to our tent, get our gas masks, flak jackets, all our gear, ready for an attack. When we got to the tent all the other women there were crying. I guess they just then realized we were in a war zone.” We had several air raid alerts and I saw another Patriot intercept yet another SCUD. Amazing light show, then explosion.”
It’s something I’ll never forget. I really have a lot of respect for our troops serving over there. They are there for a year, sometimes two, sometimes three . . . we were there for three months and we quickly learned how frightening a combat zone is. Even with that comparatively short exposure to combat, I still have dreams about the experience, and that was 20 years ago. That’s how traumatizing those experiences are.”

of Europe and much of Russia. Because of early explorers and fur trappers, France controlled half of what is today the continental United States, plus much of the middle portion of settled Canada. The only thing stopping him from complete European domination was the British Royal Navy, the most powerful in the world. In order to raise money to build up his army and navy, Napoleon sold all of France’s territory to the United States in 1803. The prairie land between the Mississippi River, from New Orleans, which was France's Louisiana capital city, north and west to the Rockies and Canada were included. It became known as "The Louisiana Purchase.” The selling price was a staggering $15 million, less than 3 cents an acre. Today, nearly all of this land produces enough food to feed millions of people around the world.
In 1805, Napoleon lost a critical sea battle at Cape Trafalgar off the coast of Spain. Realizing his Grand Army could never cross the English Channel as long as the Royal Navy controlled the seas, Napoleon marched his Grand Army across Europe, invading Russia. Just as Hitler

He out-ran his supply lines, and being illequipped for winter, the weather and Russia's "scorched earth" tactic (burning everything and then retreating, leaving nothing for the enemy to survive on), Napoleon had to retreat from Moscow in 1812.
Napoleon was harassed and attacked by Cossacks all during the retreat to the Russian border. He entered Russia with 600,000 troops, but only 40,000 survived to return home. Napoleon returned to France where he was stripped of his crown and exiled to Elba, a small, desolate Mediterranean island off the coast of Italy. Napoleon was given a personal guard of 600 French troops, but the sea around Elba was patrolled by the Royal Navy. He managed to escape and return to power. In 1815, Napoleon led his reorganized Grand Army against the British and the Duke of Wellington at the Battle of Waterloo in present-day Belgium. Once again in defeat he was

Escondido • Mayor Sam Abed 2013 - 2014 Pavement Repair and Rehab Program
Escondido’s road system is the City’s single largest asset. Like any capital investment, a road system must be maintained in a timely manner to minimize its life cycle costs and receive the maximum long-term benefit from the investment. Road pavements deteriorate under the action of traffic and heavy vehicle loading. In addition, road pavements naturally age due to environmental factors such as temperature, sunlight and water getting into pavement layers. A well-maintained road system is crucial to an effective commercial delivery system and the economic vitality of a community. If roads are
left too long without proper maintenance and timely overlays, they must be completely reconstructed at a much higher cost.
This year, the City Council increased funding for this essential program. The 2013-2014 pavement repair program will resurface over 3.75 million square feet of City roadways. The project will be completed in two phases with the bids for the first phase anticipated on October 24th. For a list of streets to be included in this year’s program please visit the City’s website at http://www.escondido.org/Data/Sites/1/media/PDFs/E ngineering/PavementRehabStreetLi st.pdf

And, why you ask, do we, as well as Canada, Mexico and Latin America drive on the right? Remember, France at one time controlled half of Canada before the British took it away from them. Mexico and all of South America were conquered by Spain and Portugal, both of whom were allies of France. As far as the United States is concerned, I figure it was just contrariness on the part of our Founding Fathers not to stay on the left, but take the right course. Ask any Brit today and they’ll

Ransomware viruses have been around for years. Recent versions flourish on Microsoft and Apple PCs. Ransomware viruses are not true viruses in that they do not replicate inside your hard drive and spread from computer to computer. Ransomware infections occur when a user is tricked into opening a Trojan horse or when a botnet “herder” installs one on a user’s zombie PC. (A botnet is a criminal network).
The Trojan horse lures users to click on a link that appears to be from a “trusted source” like UPS, FedEx, USPS, your bank, Microsoft, Yahoo, Google etc. In reality that link or program is offered by a counterfeit, not the “trusted source.” A drive-by Trojan horse is a Trojan that attach-
MESA Program Helps California Meet Job Market Needs
Last week, I attended a Math, Engineering, Science Achievement (MESA) conference to recognize students from across California. 200 student leaders from 30 campuses attended the event to discuss the future of math, engineering and science education. The number of students, educators and leaders gathered demonstrated that California can still be a strong competitor in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education. While our state is home to great research institutions, cutting edge technology companies, and innovative education models, California awards 40% fewer degrees in STEM fields as compared to the national average. This statistic, along with data that shows that there will be 8,654,000 U.S.
es itself to a popular URL like Facebook or iTunes and tricks you into thinking it is an offering from that “trusted source.”
Botnets “herders” operate hundreds of criminal networks that link millions of unsuspecting users to international crime networks. Millions of American PCs are unknowing “zombies” in one of these botnets. The botnet “herders” have total access to “zombie” PCs. It is believed that ransomware perpetrators collaborate with botnet “herders” in revenue sharing arrangements.
The best known ransomware viruses are FBI, DOJ, ICE, Homeland Security and CIA. These programs bring up a screen announcing that the user has been caught performing illegal operations on the Internet and will be arrested and charged within 72 hours unless they pay a fine (usually $200 to $400). Payment must be made by untraceable, noncancelable “moneypak.” The victim’s PC remains un-usable and locked on the ransomware screen. The perpetrators sometimes use the victim’s own web-cam to take a picture and create an official looking “wanted” poster on the ransomware screen.
of the notice they include a set of pictures showing graphic adult and child pornography. The idea is that the user will be too embarrassed or intimidated to seek professional help with the computer. California and nine other states require computer professionals to report any incidental discovery of child pornography on customer PCs. We here at the Computer Factory understand that this porn is not a result of customer Internet activity. Would technicians in corporate bureaucracies like Best Buy, Staples and Office Depot have that flexibility? Ransomware viruses are wimpy in that they usually don’t corrupt the OS (operating system) or user files. Normal operation usually can be restored by using external scans.
The overwhelming majority of victims recognize the scam and don’t pay, but removing the ransomware and unlocking the PC usually involves a trip to the computer shop. In order to keep users from taking their PCs to a shop, the bad guys have a nasty new ploy. At the bottom
jobs in STEM industries by 2018, indicates that California’s education system has work to do.
We must cultivate interest, educate, and prepare students to meet job market needs. Programs like MESA work tirelessly to achieve these goals, and much more can be accomplished with increased collaboration. I believe we can generate a new pipeline of researchers, scientists, and engineers with more private sector participation, experienced educators, and state policies that better support STEM education.

That process typically costs $90. The worst case scenario occurs when the infection has corrupted the OS. Saving user files and re-installing the OS increases the total cost to $135.
A new ransomware virus (crypttolocker) popped up in early October. It is by far the most destructive malware we’ve seen in the eighteen years we’ve had The Computer Factory. If “cryptolocker” infects your PC you will never again see the pictures, documents, music or any other files that reside on your PC - unless you pay the ransom. Cryptolocker is next week’s topic.
Select Committee to Review California’s Criminal Justice System
California has recently been beset by a number of problems involving the state’s criminal justice system. Foremost among these are court rulings about overcrowding that have resulted in thousands of prisoners being transferred to local supervision, including San Diego County, to private prisons and to other states. I am pleased to announce that I have been appointed to participate in the Select Committee on Justice Reinvestment by Assembly Speaker John A. Pérez. The committee includes eleven members of the Assembly from both parties. Two of my San Diego colleagues, Rocky Chavez (ROceanside) and Shirley N. Weber (D-San Diego) will also participate.
The Select Committee will investigate possible solutions for our criminal justice and prison challenges. According to Speaker Perez, these include: “Updating sentencing laws, strengthening effective local approaches, and improving education and programs that break the cycle of poverty. The Committee’s goal will be real data-based, long-term solutions that will help us stop spending excessive money on prisons and allow us to focus more on investments that grow our economy and provide opportunity.” Crime is an issue that affects all of us, regardless of party, economic status, geography or ideology. I look forward to serving on the Select Committee and to finding solutions to problems that directly impact public safety, the first and most important responsibility of any government.

Sam Brumit, Pastor, Mission 316 Church San Marcos, CA. The famed Dr. Seuss once wrote a poem entitled: “The Places You’ll Go.” Part of it goes like this: “You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You’re on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the guy who’ll decide where to go.” At first pass, I think a child could benefit from his advice. It seems uplifting to know that they have intelligence and can figure stuff out on their own; that they can set their own direction and choose a destiny. But upon further examination, this quip sounds a lot like a warning in the Bible found in James 4:13-15 which says…
On the surface, these savvy business types sound like people most of us admire. They intended to: set out on a trip, reach a destination, spend some time there, engage in some business and succeed in making a profit. James is saying they were making their plans but not acknowledging God. He states further that our life is a mist or vapor and we don’t know what will happen. We have no guarantees in life. Life is more than just doing business, going places or making money. God wants us to acknowledge Him and seek His will. His purpose is greater than our plans.
To discover more about God’s will, visit Mission 316 Church at 111 Richmar Ave. in San Marcos at 9:45 AM on Sundays! (Free brunch afterward). We’d love to have you join us.
