They are out there most every weekend. Saturdays and Sundays.
While you and I are probably watching football games . . . or shopping . . . or playing games with the kids or grandkids . . . they are out there . . . often under a broiling sun . . . sometimes with a chilly wind . . . sometimes with some damp weather to contend with. What makes these people give up a good portion of their weekends to spend time walking a protest line?
Because they want to save the lives of thousands of dogs; because they hate Puppy Mills and the way they treat dogs, keeping an assembly line of female dogs, pregnant with new litters that they can take away from the mommy dog, often before properly weaned, and sell to pet stores throughout the nation, because they care. Deeply. Their efforts have paid off.
In October 2013 when the Oceanside City Council voted the first time to enact an ordinance similar to the one in the city of San Diego, it was shot down by councilmembers, Jerry Kern, Gary Felien and Jack Feller.
At this time SPOT Rescue (S.P.O.T Rescue (Saving Pets One at a Time), located in Oceanside, CA.) decided to focus more on Rescue and Lobbying for a ban, so Leslie Davies and Rebekah Snyder, both from Oceanside, and Karen Clayton-Gregory, from Spring Valley, but who drove to Oceanside for 18 months to protest until the law passed, and Robert “Rob” Wanta formed Southern California Companion Animal Defenders. That’s a mighty big mouthful to say . . . or remember. So they developed an acronym, SCCAD. Still not the best name for branding purposes . . . but it seems to have worked thus far. SCCAD is a volunteer-based organization committed to making changes to our companion animal laws.
They were determined to help elect Chuck Lowery, a strong supporter of animal rights, and remove Gary Felien from office They campaigned in Oceanside and greatly assisted with the election of Chuck Lowery to the council in November of 2014, which, indeed, removed Felien from

office. They now had a new majority in office, all of whom suported anti-puppy mill legislation. National City had enacted a ban on pet stores in 2013. Now the momentum began to move northward. In July of 2014 the city of San Diego enacted an ordinance prohibiting the sale of animals at retail stores within the city’s city limits.
In January of this year, with the strong support of the new majority of Mayor Jim Wood, Deputy Mayor Chuck Lowery and Councilwoman Esther Sanchez, the Oceanside City Council voted in favor of the ordinance, saying that commercial breeders, or puppy mills, are inhumane and contribute to pet overpopulation. It took effect last September and is being enforced. The only store in Oceanside that

sold puppies commercially, Oceanside Puppy, owned by David Salinas, should be closed very soon or become humane and abide by the law - their choice.
In June of this year San Marcos officials extended a ban on retail pet stores for 10 months, as it crafts more permanent regulations of the stores. The City Council voted 5-0 during a special meeting on June 12 to

extend the urgency ordinance that was first adopted in April 2015 to April 2016.
In September of this year, Vista became the sixth city in San Diego County to ban retail pet stores from selling dogs and cats bred in out-of-state “puppy mills.” The City Council vote was 3-2.
Vista Councilman Cody Campbell initiated the item and supported it, along with Mayor Judy Ritter and Deputy Mayor John Aguilera. Campbell said no such retail pet stores exist in Vista currently, but the vote prevents store owners from relocating to Vista as neighboring cities ban their business. Vista joins the cities of Oceanside, San Marcos, San Diego, Chula Vista and Encinitas in banning puppy mill sales. Clearly, a strong movement is afoot, often led by SCCAD. These have been notable successes. Pressure and protests have contributed largely to the closure of California Pets in both Escondido and Carlsbad, as well as Furever Puppies, formerly in Escondido, however, neither city presently has an ordinance prohibiting the sale of pets. Carlsbad passed such an ordinance in 2013 but then repealed it a month later. Whether further lobbying will be successful or not in Carlsbad is unknown. California Pets has now re-

"Conversation Number One Interview With A Giraffe"
Imagine a radio station where they interview human beings, but sometimes they don’t. The following is an interview conducted at that station.
INTERVIEWER: Today, as a change of pace from interviewing human beings, I have as my guest a giraffe, direct from the wildest plains of Africa. Mr. Giraffe, welcome.
GIRAFFE: Hello, hi. It’s good to be here. And you can forget the ‘Mister.’ We animals don’t stand on ceremony. Except for lions. You know lions. They got a mane, they think it’s a crown. On the other hand, horses have manes and they’re fine, so go figure. INTERVIEWER: Uh-huh.
opened with dogs available for “adoption,” but SCCAD claims these are merely dogs imported from Orange County puppy mills and is merely a subterfuge to continue selling puppy mill dogs. SCCAD and other animal activists and their groups were very active in protesting California Pets, at both Escondido and Carlsbad locations. They also picketed the Furever Puppies business - which soon closed.
Thus far, the only supporter of legislation to prohibit retail pet sales in Escondido, is council member Olga Diaz. Council members Ed Gallo, John Masson and Mayor Sam Abed say:
Ed Gallo: “I’m against Puppy Mills. I think they are inhumane. I don’t think we need to legislate this item, however, as the marketplace doesn’t seem to support stores that sell pets. California Pets used to be at Westfield Shopping Center . . . they went out of business. I would, however, be open to hearing that matter at a council meeting.” John Masson: “I’d really need to know more about it. I’ve heard of puppy mills but have not studied the issue. I’m generally not in favor of legislating as to how people pick their dogs . . . but I’d be more than willing to listen to argument on the issue at the council level. As a council, that’s our duty.” Deputy Mayor Mike Morasco:
GIRAFFE: Am I jabbering? I’m jabbering, aren’t I? INTERVIEWER: right.
GIRAFFE: It’s just so good to open up. In the wild, we’re not allowed to talk. INTERVIEWER: For safety reasons, I suppose.
GIRAFFE: A lot of good that does us. Okay, so we’re quiet giraffes. The predators can’t hear us. But, please, we’re twenty feet tall. They can SEE US! Being quiet only protects us from blind predators. Like they’re a big problem. INTERVIEWER: Well, you can relax. You’re quite safe here.
GIRAFFE: Yes, I can sense that. Speaking of ‘safe,’ can you get me into a zoo? INTERVIEWER: You want to live in a zoo?
GIRAFFE: I’d prefer it greatly, yes.
INTERVIEWER: That’s kind of surprising. A lot of people think animals shouldn’t be in zoos.
GIRAFFE: Has anyone asked the animals? Let’s see. Zoos. They feed you, they clean up your ‘habitat,’ you get first class medical care, including dental, and you’re completely protected from predators who want to rip you to pieces and eat you. Oh, yeah. Zoos are the
Mayor Sam Abed’s position is: “I’m not aware that we have a problem in Escondido. I would want city staff to vet any such request and ensure that if we have a problem, how best to deal with it. I’ve had no complaints from anyone. This organization (SCCAD) is the only one that has reached out to me. Oceanside, Vista, San Marcos . . . they may have had a problem . . . but I’m not aware of us having one. Still, I’m open minded and would be happy to look into it at the staff level and to talk with the Humane Society.”
Rob Wanta has since created a website to help educate the public and it has videos, pictures, the full petition requesting a ban being delivered to various cities. Their message to the various city councils:
We request that Law be enacted to Ban the sale of Dogs (Puppies), Cats (Kittens) and Rabbits (Bunnies) in the city Pet Stores unless those animals are obtained from an Animal Shelter, Humane Society or a 501(c)(3) Rescue Organization.
They point out to the council members and city staff, and anyone who will take the time to listen, that animals sold in retail stores come from Puppy Mills (Large Commercial Breeders) and they are NOT spayed or neutered adding to the Shelter Pet OverPopulation problem and the needless killing of healthy animals every day in this country, euthanized simply because they have
worst. The Circle of Life, that’s good. It’s good in Disney movies!
INTERVIEWER: You wouldn’t miss your freedom?
GIRAFFE: In the wilds of Africa, we have this saying: “Freedom’s just another word for running for your life.” Which reminds me, do we have time for a quick story? INTERVIEWER: Sure.
GIRAFFE: This goes way back. I’m a baby, six, maybe, seven feet tall. I’m standing in the river with a bunch of other giraffes and we’re slaking our thirst, which is a fancy way of saying we’re drinking some water. Suddenly, giraffe ears prick up, noses start to twitch – something’s going on. INTERVIEWER: dangerous.
GIRAFFE: No, the ice cream truck is coming. Of course, dangerous. INTERVIEWER: What’s the strategy in these situations?
GIRAFFE: Our strategy is you run like crazy and, I know this isn’t nice, but you hope that they catch a different giraffe. INTERVIEWER: So you ran.
GIRAFFE: They ran. The other giraffes. I was young and thirsty and I missed the signals. I look up, everyone’s gone.
no more room - the direct result of overpopulation. We spoke to Rob Wanta about SCAAD.
“We are a grass roots group ....self funded. I actually paid for the website hosting fees, the business cards and the materials to make the protest signs and our group uses myself and with help from members and friends. I also bought dozens of tee shirts for the group members to wear to protests... these we sold to raise funds for the 501c4. We have also participated in Paws in the Park with San Diego Humane and paid hundreds of dollars for booth rental to educate the public and obtain signatures. We are working toward incorporating to become a 501c4 Fundraising & Lobbying for Companion Animal Rights. Curently I am working on protests at Mini Toy Puppies in San Marcos, and will focus on the new Escondido Pet store in North County Fair Mall next.
Leslie (Davies) is curently organizing protests at Carlsbad Pets also at a Westfield Mall - Shame on Westfield they were gone as California Pets and closed up the beginning of the year and have reimerged as Escondido & Carlsbad Pets. They also try to hide the fact of where their puppies come from by importing rescue dogs from Orange County Animal Control. No San Diego

INTERVIEWER: Oh, dear.
GIRAFFE: ‘Oh dear’ is right. ‘What’s going on?,’ I’m thinking. Then I look around, and there he is. A lion. It was the first one I’d ever seen, but you know, just looking at him, you know it’s not good. INTERVIEWER: You must have been terrified.
GIRAFFE: To put it delicately, a lot of water went back into the river. INTERVIEWER: What did you do?
GIRAFFE: Okay. At this point, I have to reveal a confidence. A secret no animal has ever revealed on the radio or anywhere else. Are you interested in a ‘scoop’’ INTERVIEWER: Of course.
GIRAFFE: You got it. And I’m hoping – no quid pro quo, or anything – but, you know, if you want to be nice, in exchange for the ‘scoop,’ that maybe you can help me…
INTERVIEWER: …get into a zoo.
GIRAFFE: Enough said – wink-wink. Okay, here’s the ‘scoop,’ the fact that animals have kept to themselves since the beginning of time. Are you ready?

Rescues, shelter or our Humane Society would even consider it! Orange County is the same agency that wanted to kill Karma the dog taken from her family simply for having wolfblood in her. (saved and now in a wolf sanctuary). This same shelter kills dogs while rescuers are in line to fill out the paperwork simply because they can and they don’t care. The management is on the news all the time and there are numerous petitions to jail them and bring in new caring managers. California alone, we learned, kills 500,000 healthy animals each year. That is one tenth of the animals murdered annually in this country. The parents of the animals sold in retail stores are left in horrific conditions at the Puppy Mills and bred to death never knowing love.
Reputable breeders do not sell to retail stores. They are similar to rescues in that they want the pet to have the best chance at life possible. It is not just about money to them! For more information about this petition or to learn more about "Puppy Mills" Please go to the website: www.SCCAnimalDefenders.org Puppies obtained from puppy mills live in deplorable conditions. Often these animals spend their entire lives inside metal cages where they are bred over and over again until they are no longer cable of reproducing. Profit is given the priority over the welfare of the animals. Unfortunately, these facilities are legal. Puppy mills are regulated and are licensed by the United States Dept. of Agriculture (USDA). There is, however, a woeful lack of enforcement of existing law. Every year, 6 – 8 million animals are killed in our shelters, simply because there are not enough homes for them. Puppy mills are directly contributing to this pet overpopulation problem, causing the death of many of these innocent animals. There are more than 10,000 puppy mills in the US. This does not even take into account the Back Yard Breeders that are under the USDA radar and not even counted. They often sell to retail pet stores and the animals are not kept as pets and companion animals and are rarely given love and treated as dogs.
They, like commercial breeders, are in it strictly for the money, these back yard breeder are considered by activists to be Puppy Mills also. The key ingredient to defining what a Puppy Mill is? Lack of love, companion animals bred solely for profit and greed, regardless of size. "STAND FOR THE BAN!"

The pet landscape in California officially has a new face! I was thrilled to learn that last month, the California State Legislature designated the Shelter Pet as the official California State Pet.
This declaration is meaningful for several reasons, perhaps the most gratifying being that shelter pets are finally getting the recognition they deserve. Gone are the days when this phrase was shrouded in the negative misconception that animals ended up in shelters because they were abused, sick or behaviorally unhealthy. In other words, "broken." We're seeing the world - especially the California community - step up in a big way to acknowledge the plight and magnificence of shelter animals.
Another reason I applaud this declaration is because it underscores the global tragedy of animal homelessness. In our state alone, each year more than 800,000 homeless animals enter California shelters - about 45,000 of which come through San Diego coalition shelters. By designating the Shelter Pet as an official symbol of California, it positions adoption to be top-of-mind for people who want pets. In doing so, more people are enlightened and empowered to help ease the strain of animal overpopulation in local shelters, by adopting.
It's also timely that just three months ago, San Diego Humane Society jointly announced with the San Diego Animal Welfare Coalition (SDAWC)* shelters the achievement of our "Getting to Zero" initiative. This means that, of the 45,000 animals San Diego shelters are on track to take in this year, zero healthy or treatable animals will be euthanized for limited shelter space or resources. What makes this lifesaving milestone possible is that local shelters have committed to working together to save the animals that need our help most. More importantly, you, our community, are working with us to ensure that "Getting to Zero" will forever be "Staying at Zero." Designating the Shelter Pet as the official California State Pet demonstrates how the entire state also shares the sentiment that homeless animals deserve our protection.
Rob Wanta goes on to say, “We are ok with Pet SUPPLY Stores ... we are just against the exploitation and suffering of pets! This store "Mini Toy Puppies," sells
absolutely nothing but puppies and kittens both of which are available for adoption from rescue organizations for one tenth of the cost for mostly pedigreed mutts ... they add papers to the mix and a zero to the cost. Those who feel strongly about this movement and would either like to become part of it as a volunteer, or a donor, are asked to contact SCAAD at their email site: Info@SCCAnimalDefenders.org

Man About Town
I’m beginning to think I am snakebit when it comes to following football teams.
Our San Diego Chargers are having a miserable season lousy play, rookie mistakes, forgetting fundamentals (like how to tackle and block) and they have a heavy list of injuries with which to contend. We are well on our way to a big-time losing season and one has to think ownership is not only thinking about changing cities, exchanging the friendly and forgiving confines of San Diego for the huge and smoggy Los Angeles area . . . but possibly changing coaches as well. The Chargers have lost 12 of the last 18 games under head coach Mike McCoy.
He’s a handsome man, soft spoken, probably a very pleasant person to know. But he doesn’t seem to be much of a football

coach. He can’t seem to win.
Phillip Rivers is a gem! A master quarterback who is carrying his team by sheer dint of his passing accuracy and a little help from a battered offensive line that tries to give him enough protection to get off the short to medium passes that seem to work. But the running game doesn’t work . . . the defense doesn’t seem to be able to stop the other teams running or passing offense . . . and there just isn’t the will to win. Okay, maybe the will to win is there . . but not the moxie . . . or combined talent. That comes down to coaching. Meanwhile, having grown up in Nebraska I am a big Cornhusker fan. They are having a year almost as bad as the Chargers . . . and a former Charger head coach, Mike Reilly, is now the Cornhusker Head Coach.
The Huskers are not like the Huskers of old . . . a big, dominant team ... dominating on both sides of the line . . . controlling the game . . . running and passing up and down the field andknocking the other team on its backside consistently. It’s only Reilly’s first year so he deserves a pass. But he’d better turn out a winning team next year or he’s likely to be history as well.
Or maybe the easier solution is that I should just follow other teams. Maybe it’s MY fault both

INTERVIEWER: I’m all ears.
GIRAFFE: Okay. In the jungle, every animal has, secreted, somewhere on his or her person, a book. INTERVIEWER: A book.
GIRAFFE: It’s very small. We have excellent eyesight. INTERVIEWER: I’ve never heard this before.
GIRAFFE: Of course not, it’s a secret! Were you not listening? INTERVIEWER: I’m sorry. How have you kept it a secret so long?
GIRAFFE: Animals are extremely disciplined. Also, just before they die, animals are instructed to swallow the book. Look in their mouths. Tiny pages. INTERVIEWER: Does book have a name?
GIRAFFE: Yes. The book is called Who Eats Who? It’s a picture book, because, you know… INTERVIEWER: can’t read.
GIRAFFE: And don’t think it hasn’t held us back. Here’s how it works. You’re in the wild, and you spot an animal skulking in your proximity. Strange animal, you’ve never seen it
before. Right away, you pull out your Who Eats Who? and you locate the picture in the book that matches the animal you’re looking at. Now, underneath that picture, below the identifying name, you will find one of two arrows – an arrow pointing toward the animal, which means you run after him and eat him; or an arrow pointing away from the animal, which means, ‘Get the heck out of there before he eats you.’

The Tax Fight Continues
As your Assemblymember, I have been working hard in Sacramento to fight taxes, fees and overreaching regulations. During my 14-year tenure on the Escondido City Council, I never supported a tax increase and I am continuing that fight in the Legislature. That is why I have earned an “A” rating from the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association for each of the three years I have served as your Assemblywoman. A number of tax and fee increase proposals were introduced this year:
I opposed SB 350, which will significantly increase energy costs and was signed by the Governor
I opposed SB 32, which would also drive up energy costs. The bill failed in the Assembly. I opposed SB 513, to extend vehicle registration fees without a two-thirds vote. Signed by the Governor
I opposed AB 464, which extends authority of local governments to increase the sales

This free workshop is designed to help adults gain a more complete understanding of the real estate market, when it is advantageous to rent, or when buying is the best option. First time buyers will benefit from financial tips that will make the home-buying experience more understandable. The Literacy Center’s (sdflc.org) mission is to educate and empower individuals/families to make sound financial decisions. All Library programs are free and open to the public.

Tia Quick, on Proposition 47 – On Wednesday, November 18th, at the Happy Hour Politics (HHP) meeting, Tia Quick, S.D. Deputy District Attorney will address California Prop 47, the Reduced Penalties for Some Crimes Initiative, on the November 2014 ballot and signed into law by Gov. Jerry Brown. This law, referred to it as "The Safe Neighborhood and Schools Act" by supporters, reduces the classification of most "non-serious and nonviolent property and drug crimes"

tax to 10.5 percent. Vetoed by the Governor.
I opposed ACA 4 and SCA 5 which lowered the voter approval threshold for tax increases from two-thirds to 55 percent and SB 16, which sought to raise gasoline taxes, license and registration fees. Luckily, these bills failed in the Senate. California suffers from some of the nation’s highest tax rates. Additional taxes would have a major, negative impact on jobs, incomes and the overall economy. Furthermore, the heaviest burden would fall on working Californians with the least ability to pay. This session, my Republican colleagues were joined by many moderate Democrats, creating a bi-partisan majority that blocked, modified or defeated many of these proposals. Supporting local control, improving the economy and opposing new taxes are all vitally important to the prosperity and well-being of all. Rest assured I will continue to fight for you in Sacramento.

Golfing
* Golf balls are like eggs ~ they're white. They're sold by the dozen... and a week later you have to buy more.
* A pro-shop gets its name from the fact that you have to have the income of a professional golfer to buy anything in there. * It's amazing how a golfer who never helps out around the house will replace his divots, repair his ball marks and rake his sand traps.
* When you stop to think about it, did you ever notice that it's a lot easier to get up at 6:00
a.m. to play golf than at 10:00 a.m. to mow the yard or go to church? * Golf is by far the ultimate love / hate relationship. Sometimes it seems as though your cup runneth and moveth over.
Historically Speaking by Tom Morrow
* It takes longer to learn good golf than it does brain surgery. On the other hand, you seldom get to ride around on a cart, drink beer and eat hot dogs while performing brain surgery. * A good drive on the 18th hole has stopped many a golfer from giving up the game.
* Water hazards are no walk in the park for fish, turtles, frogs or alligators either.
* Golf is the perfect thing to do on Sunday because you always end up praying a lot. * A good golf partner is one who's always slightly worse than you.
* That rake by the sand trap is there for golfers who feel guilty about skipping out on lawn work. * If there's a storm rolling in, you'll be having the game of your life.
* If your opponent has trouble remembering whether he shot a six or a seven, he probably shot an eight.
* You probably wouldn't look good in a Green Jacket anyway! A sweatshirt will do just fine! * Golf appeals to the child in all of us. This is proven by our frequent inability to count past the number 5.
* It's a simple matter to keep your ball in the fairway if you're not choosy about which fairway.
* If profanity had any influence on the flight of a ball, most everyone would play better. * The greatest sound in golf is the Whoosh, Whoosh, Whoosh, of your opponent's club as he hurls it across the fairway. * A recent survey shows that of all jobs, caddies live the longest. They get plenty of fresh air and exercise and if there's ever a medical emergency, a doctor is always nearby. Outdoorsy Man
During his physical, the doctor asked the patient about his daily activity level. He described a typical day this way: "Well, yesterday afternoon, I waded along the edge of a lake, drank eight beers, escaped from wild dogs in the heavy brush,marched up and down several rocky hills, stood in a patch of poison ivy, crawled out of quicksand, jumped away from an aggressive rattlesnake and took four leaks behind big trees." Inspired by the story, the doc-
Lafitte: The Scoundrel or Hero?
French-American Jean Lafitte was a pirate who has been referred to as both a scoundrel and hero. Jean and his brother, Pierre Lafitte, had a fleet of ships, as well as operating a New Orleans smuggling and warehouse operation in the early 1800s.
Born in 1780, Jean Lafitte and Pierre used their warehouse to disperse their smuggled goods, but after the United States government passed the Embargo Act of 1807, the Lafittes moved their operations to an island in Barataria Bay south of New Orleans. Jean Lafitte’s name became famous for his role during the

There were four sophomores taking chemistry and all of them had an 'A' so far.
These four friends were so confident that the weekend before finals, they decided to visit some friends and have a big party. They had a great time but, after all the hearty partying, they slept all day Sunday and didn't make it back to Florida State until early Monday morning.
Rather than taking the final then, they decided that after the final they would explain to their professor why they missed it. They said that they visited friends but on the way back they had a flat tire. As a result, they missed the final. The professor agreed they could make up the final the next day.
The guys were excited and relieved. They studied that night for the exam. The next day the professor placed them in separate rooms and gave them a test booklet.

War of 1812. While history does not argue with the pirate’s participation on the high seas, there has been controversy as to how much of a contribution Lafitte made to help Gen. Andrew Jackson defeat the British during the Battle of New Orleans. Ironically, because of the length of time required for news from Europe to reach America, the war had been over three months when the battle occurred. As the story goes, Jackson met with Lafitte, who offered to serve if the U.S. would pardon those of his men who would fight to defend the city. Jackson agreed. With Lafitte's encouragement, many of his men joined the New Orleans militia or as sailors to man the ships. Others formed three artillery companies. On Dec. 23, 1814, advance units of the British fleet reached the Mississippi River. Lafitte realized that the American line of defense was so short as potentially to allow the British to encircle the American troops. Lafitte suggested the line of defense be extended to a nearby swamp, and Jackson ordered it done. On land and sea, the pirate gunners earned praise as the battle continued. Jackson praised Jean and Pierre Lafitte for having “… exhibited courage and fidelity.” The future president formally requested clemency for the Lafittes and the men who had served under them. The U.S. government granted Jackson’s request with a full pardon for all on Feb. 6, 1815.
Given the pirate’s legendary reputation, there was much wild speculation about whether, or how, Lafitte died. Rumors abounded: some say he changed his name and disappeared; others that he was killed by his own men shortly after leaving Galveston, Texas; or, a ridiculous story that he rescued French Emperor Napoleon and they both died in Louisiana. While there were no authentic records of Jean Lafitte’s death, it is generally believed he died sometime in 1823. Today, festivals, streets, and parks are named for the pirate. Lafitte's Blacksmith Shop bar is located on Bourbon Street in New Orleans. Constructed prior to 1732, the structure is believed to be the oldest bar in the United States. Jean Lafitte remains an enigmatic character of American history. Whether he was a hero or scoundrel is left for historical interpretation. There’s little doubt that he has captured the imagination of writers, both historian and novelists, as well as Hollywood, with three films depicting his “supposed exploits.”

Shortly after she started working, I noticed she was beginning to show her age. I usually get home from the golf club about the same time she gets home from work.

hour or so before she starts dinner. I don't yell at her. Instead, I tell her to take her time and just wake me when she gets dinner on the table. I generally have lunch in the Men's Grill at the club, so eating out is not reasonable. I'm ready for some home-cooked grub when I hit that door. She used to do the dishes as soon as we finished eating. But now it's not unusual for them to sit on the table for several hours after dinner. I do what I can by diplomatically reminding her several times each evening that they won't clean themselves. I know she really appreciates this, as it does seem to motivate her to get them done before she goes to bed.

Another symptom of aging is complaining; for example, she will say that it is difficult for her to find time to pay the monthly bills during her lunch hour. But, Boys, we take 'em for better or worse, so I just smile and offer encouragement. I tell her to stretch it out over two, or even three days. That way, she won't have to rush so much. I also remind her that missing lunch completely now and then wouldn't hurt her any (if you know what I mean). I like to think tact is one of my strong points. When doing simple jobs, she seems to think she needs more rest periods. She had to take a break when she was only halffinished mowing the lawn . I try not to make a scene. I'm a fair man.

The police report says he was found with a Calloway extra-long 48 -inch Big Bertha Driver II golf club jammed up his rear end, with barely 5 inches of grip showing, and a sledge hammer laying nearby. His wife was arrested and charged with murder. The allwoman jury took only 10 minutes to find her Not Guilty, accepting her defense that her husband somehow without looking, accidentally sat down on his golf club. •••••
You can imagine how disappointed I was to get an anonymous letter at City Hall latent with disparaging comments about the theme of this event. A hand written letter with no return address directly insulting a people, culture and language that is very much a part of Escondido, California and the United States.

I know that I probably look like a saint in the way I support my wife. I'm not saying that showing this much consideration is easy. Many men will find it difficult. Some will find it impossible! Nobody knows better than I do how frustrating women get as they get older. However, guys, even if you just use a little more tact and less criticism of your aging wife because of this article, I will consider that writing it was well worthwhile. After all, we are put on this earth to help each other.
I’ve received this type of letter before, and have arrived at the conclusion that all anonymity often goes hand in hand with cowardice. I feel bad for cowards, especially those with strong opinions but weak dispositions. I will continue to read all correspondence I receive at City Hall, but sign your name if you expect a response, and be ready for one if you send me racist messages.

The Pastor Says . . .
Pastor Richard Huls (Retired) Visiting Sin City
Recently, when I was in Las Vegas, I noticed a sign advertising a product under the logo, “Sin City.” Being a preacher, this did not surprise me because of what Las Vegas represents to many people. There is gambling, prostitution, greed, lust, fear, the mafia, and everything else one might put under the word, SIN. Now I know Las Vegas doesn’t have an exclusive on sin. Every city, town, village, hamlet, and home has sin. It is just that it isn’t as obvious as in Vegas.
My purpose for being in Vegas was to visit some people who use a ministry I provide, and have done so for fifty years, called Dial-APrayer. These folks call this service daily, which consists of a brief daily recorded message that includes a greeting, Scripture, word of encouragement, and prayer, with the opportunity to leave a personal request for prayer and counsel. Many do.
What I found interesting is the fact that, even in the midst of “Sin City,” there is an opportunity to share a spiritual experience, which keeps these callers encouraged and connected to God. It helps to keep perspective in the midst of so much wrong. I wanted to personally encourage them in their valley of temptation and seduction. For that, they were grateful. It is not to say they won’t yield to the evils of their worlds, something we all have to resist no matter where we are, but at least there is another choice. Even “Sin City” has Dial-A-Prayer.

A Weekly Message from the Mayor of Your Community published in the belief that it is important for elected leaders to communicate with their constituents and that constituents have a means of hearing from their elected leaders.
San Marcos • Mayor Jim Desmond
Are you prepared for winter rains?
Forecasters predict San Diego County could be in for higher-thanaverage rain this winter due to strong El Niño conditions in the Pacific Ocean— conditions unseen since 1998. In response to these predictions, the City is gearing up emergency preparedness efforts and has implemented an El Niño readiness plan to identify and minimize the impacts of rain.
Public Works crews are inspecting and clearing City drainage inlets, channels and culverts while pinpointing spaces that are more susceptible to flooding and erosion in the Cocos Fire burn areas. Emergency operations personnel are preparing for deployment and recovery options are being streamlined in case heavy rainfall
produces significant flooding damage.
Residents should refresh family emergency preparedness plans and take steps to prepare their property for potential flooding; inspect properties and homes to ensure that roofs are in good condition, rain gutters are cleaned out and storm drains are clear of debris.
To go one step further, be disaster-ready by subscribing to e-alerts by visiting www.san-marcos.net/alerts, follow the City of San Marcos on facebook and twitter (@sanmarcoscity) and tune-in to radio station AM 1610 to stay updated with the latest safety information during an emergency.

Maher had filed the suit in August of 2014 in San Diego Superior Court but Escondido City Attorney Jeff Epp said the lawsuit had never actually been served on Escondido. In the lawsuit, Maher argued the city was withholding $75,000 still owed to him under a November 2012 severance agreement.
The lawsuit said Escondido had refused to pay that amount because city officials believed Maher violated a confidentiality provision in the agreement, which he signed when he abruptly retired from the Escondido Police Department without explanation. The severance included a retroactive 14 percent raise that bumped his annual pension to $162,504, as well as a $150,000 cash payment that was to be broken into two installments.
The agreement also restricted Maher and his wife from speaking publicly about his departure or about any city business, and prohibited them from attending City Council meetings and other civic events.
Maher said in the lawsuit that he received the first $75,000 payment in January 2013, but didn’t receive the second installment that was due in July of that year. The lawsuit claimed that in June 2013, the city sent a letter to
Maher’s lawyer stating that it intended to withhold the second payment because either Maher or his wife “breached the confidentiality and/or other provisions of the contract.”
In September 2013, Maher had issued a nine-paragraph statement in which he said he “was never given the option” of keeping his job. Maher, a member of the Police Department since 1980, became chief in 2006.
Vista • Mayor Judy Ritter
Improving Vista’s Parks & Roads
During the past year, over 30 percent of the city streets have been repaired, including Melrose, Shadowridge, Civic Center, and Hacienda drives; and Sycamore and Olive avenues. Once the winter wet season ends, street repairs will begin again around the city (spring, 2016). The improvements will continue to focus on the major roadways in the city where many people drive, as well as some residential areas in need of repair. These improvements will continue to make a positive difference in the quality of driving throughout the city. In addition, the City is investing $7 million in new park amenities, equipment upgrades and is also constructing two new skateparks. Following is a list of proj-

Paul & Nome Van Middlesworth, The Computer Factory
Winners and Losers, The Big Three.
Who’s winning and who’s losing in the battle for your computing and communications dollars. While there are scores of makers and sellers of smart phones, tablets, notebooks and desktops, the real “battle for the bucks” is between the three makers of the OS (operating systems) that dominate the industry, Microsoft, Apple and Google (now called Alphabet). As of March 2015 these companies were three of the top five most valuable corporations in the world. #1 (Apple $725 billion), #4 (Google $346 billion) and#5 (Microsoft $335 billion). These companies compete with one another in selling devices and the OS that run the World’s computing and communications. Most American households have both a PC (laptop/desktop) and a mobile communications device (cell

For the past thirty years Microsoft’s DOS and later Windows OS have been the overwhelming choice among PC users. Microsoft’s Windows OS powers 92% of the world’s PCs. Microsoft’s only PC competition is the Apple, iOS and it powers only 5% of today’s PCs. How does Microsoft’s dominant position in PC OS affect their revenue?
All manufacturers of Windows based PCs must pay Microsoft a license fee for the Windows OS license. All business or home users who use Microsoft’s general purpose PC applications like Microsoft Office, must also pay a license fee. Businesses with server based networks pay license fees for the server software plus an access license for each PC in the network. When you add it all up, license fees for PC software make up $61 billion of Microsoft’s $87 million in 2014 revenues. That says that 70% of Microsoft’s income depends on PC software licensing. While Microsoft’s market share and the income stream from PCs is relatively safe and under no serious competitive threat, there is one unsettling fact. The PC industry’s volume peaked at 350 million units in 2011 and has been in a slow decline since. Not coincidentally, Microsoft’s net income also peaked in 2011 at $23 billion and by fiscal 2015 had fallen to $12 billion. While Microsoft can “cash cow” its dominant position in the FICTITIOUS BUSINESS NAME STATEMENT #2015-025426 The name of the business: Ryot Entertainment Group, located at 668 Inspiration Ln., Escondido, Ca. 92025.

PC business for some time, the fact that its current revenue stream is heavily leveraged in a declining segment of the market makes it obvious that Microsoft needs to find a new source of revenue.

Google (Alphabet) figures to gross about $80 billion in 2015. 90% of it will be Internet advertising revenue. $40 billion of that revenue will come from advertising directed at PC users. Google’s success derives from the fact that it owns by far the most popular (70% of searches use Google)) “search engine” on the Internet. How Google got there and the winners and losers in the mobile market (phones and tablets) is next week’s topic.

Escondido, CA—In a 2002 issue of Neurosurgical Focus, a peerreviewed article was published by a Dr. Michael D. Martin, MD et al. in which the third sentence states: “The disc itself is active tissue that contains significant mechanisms for self-repair.” That article was published by a neurosurgeon and written directly for neurosurgeons.
brown leaves are the plant’s problem? Of course not, the leaves turning brown is just a condition that is telling you that there is something wrong with the plant. The plant is unhealthy and needs water and nutrients. You could spray paint the leaves green but it just covers up the condition. The underlying problem still exists and will continue to produce brown leaves until you fix the actual problem.
“The Disc Itself Is Active Tissue...”
and tingling that most experience with bulging, herniated or degenerative discs are NOT the problem. The definition of a symptom: “something that indicates the existence of something else.” It is just like the dashboard of your car telling you that something is wrong (brake lights out, engine needs checked, overheating, etc.) Those lights that appear in your car dash are NOT the problem. You can remove the lights surgically or put a piece of duct tape over the lights but the problem will NOT be fixed...the problem is still present.
So what does that really mean to us? It tells us that the disc itself does have a God-given ability to heal and repair if provided the proper mechanisms for self-healing. There is a specific mechanism inherent in each of the spinal discs called the “pump mechanism of disc nutri-tion” (see Fig 1). When this mechanism is not working properly, the spinal discs will begin to die causing bulges, herniations, and eventually spinal stenosis.
The spinal disc is one of the very few tissues in the body that does not have a direct blood supply for circulation. The only way that the disc gets the circulation of water, oxygen and nutrients for self-repair is via this specific disc pump mechanism. What happens when you decrease cir-culation in any type of tissue, whether it be animal tissue, plant tissue or human tissue? Exactly, it begins to become weak and begins to degenerate.
Symptoms Are NOT The Problem
Now the symptoms of pain, numbness,
Let’s take a look at a plant for example...if the leaves on a plant begin to turn brown, would you say that the
extent of your disc damage for only $70. This examination will consist of a detailed neurological evaluation, extensive orthopedic testing, and a detailed analysis of the findings of your evaluation. He will sit down with you and go over your condition with you in complete detail. You will know exactly what is causing all your pain (or other symptoms).
In your spine, when the pump mechanism of disc nutrition fails, the disc will begin to de-generate and become weak. This weakness in the disc is what produces the bulging, herniated, and degenerative discs.
The treatment that is provided at Dr. Heilman’s Spine and Neuropathy Care Center in Escondido is revolutionary and is specifically designed to artificially re-create the pump mechanism in the discs which allows the spinal discs to heal and repair. The best part of the treatment is that it uses no drugs, no injections, and no surgery. Plus it’s painless and many patients relax and fall asleep while undergoing the treatment.
Dr. Stephen Heilman, DC
The amount of treatment needed to allow the discs to heal and repair varies from person to person and can only be determined after a detailed neurological and orthopedic evaluation. We do NOT accept everyone for treatment and will let you know if we can accept your case for treatment.
