Editor’s Note: As promised, we presend another in a series of journal entries dictated by James P. Beckwourth, an adventurer, explorer, scout, hunter, trapper, pioneer, emigrant and, for a time, Indian Chief of the Crows.
The narrative is almost amusing in that hardy pioneers did not really talk in such elegant terms. Clearly, T. D. Bonner, who writes this biography, has exercised considerable ‘poetic license’ in describing the adventures in such elegant prose. Here, then, more in the continuing saga describing the trek out West by James P. Beckwourth: Victory over the Cheyennes. —Treachery of the Snake Indians. —Loss of six Crow Warriors. —Victory over the Snakes and Utahs. —A Mountaineer killed. — Trouble in the Wigwam. —I am disgraced. —Great Sacrifice of my Father's

Property. —Three Whippings for violating Crow Morals. — Great Battle with the Re-ka-ras.
FOUR days after our return, our chief, still smarting at the sacrifice he had made for the salvation of his people, burned for revenge. He selected a body of over two hundred warriors, and started forthwith in search of the enemy.
The night following his departure, I also raised two hundred men, and started in a contrary direction. We proceeded on until we came to Laramie Forks, where Fort Laramie has since been built, and were in sight of a Cheyenne village. While we were surveying the village, eleven of their men, laden with meat, came up and encamped within a few hundred yards of where we were. We immediately threw ourselves flat upon the ground, resolved to wait until the coming of night, in order to make secure work of our attack on them, and prevent any of their number escaping to alarm the village. At a late hour we silently approached their camp
when they were all sound asleep; a dozen guns were discharged at them in a moment, and we rushed in with our battle-axes to complete the work. We took their scalps, and were soon on the retreat, bearing away all the meat we needed, besides nineteen horses, and the slain warriors' equipments. We returned to the village, and washed off the mourningpaint, making the whole village ring with our dancing and rejoicing. The additional name of Ar-rae-dish (the Bloody Arm) was conferred upon me.
The old chief came in three days subsequently, bringing fourteen scalps and equipments, without having lost a single man. Many of my readers will doubtless wonder how a man who had been reared in civilized life could ever participate in such scenes of carnage and rapine. I have already related that I was brought up where similar outrages were committed upon the defenseless inhabitants of the new settlements. Impressed with the recol-

lection of these early scenes, I hardly ever struck down an Indian but my mind reverted to the mangled bodies of my childish play-fellows, which I discovered on my way to the mill, barbarously murdered by the savages. In after years I have experienced the natural ferocity of the savage, who thirsts for the blood of the white man for no other purpose than to gratify the vindictive spirit that animates him. I have seen the paths of the trappers dyed with their blood, drawn from their hearts by the ambushed savage, who never knew mercy, but remorsely butchered all who came in his way. Such is Indian nature. When I fought with the Crow nation, I fought in their behalf against the most relentless enemies of the white man. If I chose to become an Indian while living among them, it concerned no person but myself; and by doing so, I saved more life and property for the white man than a whole regiment of United States regulars could have done in the same time. Before I close this narrative, I shall take the liberty to express

my opinions, and afford those having control of the War Department some counsel about the cheapest, most expeditious, and most certain method of quelling their Indian troubles, on which the newspapers are harping so much. I know that with five hundred men of my selection I could exterminate any Indian tribe in North America in a very few months. But so long as our government continues to enlist the offscouring of European cities into our army, and intrusts the command to inexperienced officers fresh from West Point, just so long will they afford food for the Indians in and about the Rocky Mountains. Encumbered as our army is with baggage-wagons and artillery, an Indian chief can move his whole community farther in one day than our soldiers can follow them in three. When our victorious celebration was over, I started on a small trading expedition to the Snake Indians. I had received an invitation from their chief to trade among them, and I selected eight warriors to accompany me. On arriving at their village, I found that the Utahs had joined them, and a great number of them were thronging the village. Knowing that the Utahs and Crows were deadly enemies, I watched their movements, and very speedily felt distrust for the safety of myself and party, as the whole camp savored strongly of treachery. I mustered my little party around
Give Us This Day Our Daily Chuckle This week, a compendium of wit, wisdom and neat stuff you can tell at parties. Enjoy! Frozen Carburetor
People often complain about the police, but you rarely hear about the positive things they do, such as this incident involving a biker and a frozen carburetor.
Last January on a bitterly cold winter's day, a North Dakota State Trooper on patrol came upon a motorcyclist who was stalled by the roadside. The biker was swathed in heavy protective clothing and wearing a full-face helmet to protect the face from the cold weather. “What’s the matter?” asked the Trooper "Carburetor's frozen," was the
me, and found them without guns. On inquiring the cause, they informed me they had traded them away for horses. I suppose my looks expressed my disapprobation. Mistaking me, they said there was yet one fine horse left, which I could have at the price of my gun.
I had finished my traffic, and had disposed of every thing except my gun, when the Snakes came to me and offered to trade for that. I said, "No; I never sell my gun, except when at home and among my own people." The Snakes then told us to go, that things were bad in their camp. We sprang upon our horses, and struck out at full speed; but we soon discovered a large party of Indians were in close pursuit. We then found they had not sold us their fastest horses, as they gained on some of my party, and shot and scalped them without our ability to defend them. I succeeded in reaching the mountain with two of my men, having lost six noble young warriors in my flight. I knew there would be terrible mourning and loss of fingers, until I could teach the Snakes a lesson which would serve them to remember for a long time. After devoting a short space to bewailing my misfortune, I requested a council to be called, and never did I enlarge with such wrathful vehemence as I then fulminated against the Snakes, holding them up to the abhorrence of the fathers for their treachery in decoying our unsuspecting warriors into their camp, and then letting loose a pack of murderous
"Pee on it. That'll thaw it out." "I can't," said the biker.
"OK, watch me closely and I'll show you." The Trooper unzipped and promptly warmed the carburetor as promised.
Moments later the bike started and the rider drove off, waving. A few days later, the local State Troopers’ office received a note of thanks from the father of the motorcyclist.

savages at our heels, after we had, through their complicity, parted with our only means of defense. I demanded five hundred warriors to go and wipe out the stain, and inflict summary chastisement on the village for their duplicity. My argument was listened to with the profoundest attention, and all I proposed was readily acceded to. "Let the Red Arm have all that he asks," was the unanimous voice of the assembly.
My warriors rallied around me almost at a moment's notice, and we mounted our horses and sped in the direction of the Snake country, on Green River. On the eighth day our scouts came in and reported that they had found a large number of the Snakes, scattered in small parties, who were engaged in killing buffalo. We held on until we came in sight of them. I distributed my warriors as the occasion suggested, ordering them to attack the various small camps, while I, with my party, should attack their main body. They were overthrown and dispersed by my brave warriors, with severe loss. We took over one hundred scalps, and a great quantity of guns and other warlike implements. We had sixteen men wounded, including myself (I received two slight wounds from arrows), but none of them dangerously. This blow brought the Snakes to their senses, and they immediately sent a deputation to our village to sue for peace. A circumstance happened on the evening preceding our attack
which caused me the deepest regret. While the spies were reconnoitering, they perceived two Indians, as they supposed, leave the enemy's camp, and proceed down the cañon. This circumstance they reported to me. I ordered them to return, and kill them if they could find them. They went in pursuit of the two stragglers, and when they came in sight of them they had their robes over their heads, and were kneeling down over a fire. They fired, and one of the two fell mortally wounded; the other sprang out of his robe, when, to their surprise, they saw he was a white man. They, however, took him prisoner, and brought him to my camp. I was absent at their return; but on the following morning I remarked a very dejected look on their countenances, and I asked them what was the matter. "We have done very bad," said one; "we have reddened our hands with the blood of the white man." "Well, how did it occur?" I inquired. "Ask that white man, and he will tell you all."
I walked up to the unhappy prisoner, whose looks betrayed the keenest anguish, and addressed him in English. "How are you, my friend?"
He started as if electrified, and looked me closely in the face.

"What brought you here?" I continued.
"I was brought here by these Indians, who killed my companion while we were building a fire to warm ourselves. I suppose I am brought here to be killed also?" "No, my friend," I said, "you are safe. The Crows never kill white men." "Are these Crows?" "Yes."
"Well, well! Then you must be Mr. Beckwourth?" "Yes, that is my name. And now, without the least fear of danger, relate the occurrence fairly: if my warriors have killed a white man intentionally, they shall be punished." He then related how he and his companion went into the cañon, and how they made a fire to render themselves comfortable away from the Indian camp; how that their robes were over their heads, entirely concealing their faces from view, and that he felt fully confident that my warriors, in firing upon them, had mistaken them for Indians.
"Well," I said, "since the mistake is so apparent, you will greatly serve me to make the same statement to your companions when you return to your camp; for the Crows are entirely innocent of any design to shed the blood of the white man, and it would be deplorable for any misunderstanding to arise in consequence of this lamentable occurrence."
"I shall make a fair statement of the fact," he said, "and should be very sorry to be the means of any trouble." He then informed me that he and his late companion were trappers; that his party were in winterquarters, and encamped with the main body of the Snakes; and that they had come out with this party after meat. I then gave him my reasons for attacking the Snakes, and begged him to commend me to all the old mountaineers. "There is not a day passes," he said, "but some one mentions you, to wonder where you are, and what you are now doing. I can tell them all that I have seen you, and conversed with you." I then told him he was at liberty to go at any time; that he could take all the horses belonging to him, and all else that he needed. We assisted him with the body of his unhappy friend upon the back of a horse, and, bidding me adieu, he departed.
The Snakes dispatched a deputation of forty warriors and a medicine chief to the Crows to negotiate peace. They attached all the blame of the late rupture to the Utahs, whom, they said, they could not control, and that the death of our six young warriors was entirely against their wish.
This we knew was false, for there were ten Snakes to one Utah in the camp at the time of the out-
rage. They also pleaded that they had tried for a long time to induce the Utahs to return home, knowing that they were enemies to the Crows. We at length adjusted the conditions of peace, smoked the calumet, and, after an exchange of presents, they returned to their home. About this time a brave, named Big Rain, was elected chief of the village for the term of six moons. His duties were to superintend all the village removals, to select sites for camps, order surrounds; in short, he was a kind of mayor, and alone subject to the head chief. Big Rain possessed the most beautiful squaw in the whole village; she was the admiration of every young brave, and all were plotting (myself among the rest) to win her away from her proud lord. I had spoken to her on several occasions, and, whenever opportunity offered, would tender her my most ceremonious obeisance; but she never favored me with any return. Not only was she beautiful, but she was very intelligent, and as proud as Lucifer; and the gorgeous dyes of the peacock were not more variegated or more showy than her attire. Since the elevation of her husband, I fancied that she assumed rather haughtier airs; and I determined to steal her from her lord, be the consequences what they might. I went one evening to her brother's lodge, and acquainted him that there was a woman in our village that I loved, and that I must have her at all hazards.
"Well, warrior," said he, "if it is any of my relatives, I will assist you all in my power. You are a great brave, and have gained
many victories for us, and it is but right that your desires should be gratified."
"Thank you," said I; "but I will try alone first, and if I do not succeed, then I shall be very glad of your assistance."
As an acknowledgment for the prompt tender of his services, I presented him with a quantity of tobacco. "Now," added I, "I want you to call in all your neighbors to-night, and let them smoke as long as they please. After they are assembled, bar the door of your lodge, and amuse them as long as you can with the rehearsal of your adventures. In the mean time, I will be engaged." I then went to my bosom friend and brother, and made part to him of what I had in hand, which revelation greatly amused him. I requested him to act as sentry over the lodge where they were all smoking — Big Rain with the rest, for I had seen him enter — and remain there until he was satisfied they had filled their pipes for the last time, and then to call out to me, but to mislead them in the place where he was addressing me. This he promised to perform, and we both started on our errands. I went to Big Rain's lodge, dressed and painted in the extreme of the fashion, and saw the lady reclining, half asleep, upon her couch, and several of her female relatives asleep about the room.

The Paper • Page 4 • November 26, 2015 Escondido Mayor Sam Abed Using City Website to Promote Candidacy for Supervisor
Escondido Mayor Sam Abed has been critical of Supervisor Dave Roberts for his alleged ethical lapses and mismanagement of his office.
Now it appears Mayor Abed has been taken to task for his use of the city web site to promote his candidacy for Supervisor which, in term, poses the question whether that action was legal, or even ethical. In an article in the UnionTribune Sunday, reporter Joshua Stewart pointed out that Abed, a Republican, criticized Roberts, the lone Democrat on the board, for accusations and reports that he used his county-paid staff and government resources to boost his re-election campaign. He gave Roberts two options: explain yourself or resign. Robert’s refused to do either and Abed jumped into the race.
“What really pushed me to run was his denial, his denial of wrongdoing added fuel to the fire,” Abed said when he announced his candidacy in June. Abed’s campaign, however, is

“The link was cleared by the City Attorney for compliance, State Law and City Policies before it was created,” Abed’s campaign said in a statement.
The city’s link, www.MayorSamAbed.com would automatically send the reader to: www.SamForSupervisor.com, the campaign website.
Abed said he did nothing illegal.
Abed’s campaign did not respond to follow-up questions about the ethics of this link, or if he’s holding Roberts to a different standard than he holds himself. “This is a leadership question, this is an integrity question.” Abed said back in June.
Not everyone agrees that the Abed’s campaign link on the city web page is legal as the candidate contends. Attorney Marco Gonzalez, known primarily for pursuing environmental cases, says he’s considering filing a lawsuit against Escondido on the matter, and expects to make a decision in the next few months.

In a related item, we have thought for many years to put a collection of our “Chuckles” column together and bind into two, three, four separate volumes, all with an attractive cover; these would make ideal gifts for Christmas or any other time of year. Chances are they would also generate some welcome new revenue for the threadbare pockets of your poor editors.
The problem is time. We just don’t have the time to put together such a collection. Both Evelyn and I are so busy putting a weekly paper out each and every week of the year that there is little time for other projects Perhaps someday. ••••• Speaking of books, I have long talked to Charlie Mitich, Ray Alto, and Joe Goncalves, owners of Charlie’s Restaurant, Jalapeno Grill and Cantina and La Tapatia, and J&M Restaurant, respectively, about collaborating on a “howto” book on how to start and run a successful restaurant.

Nothing daunted, I strode to the couch of Mrs. Big Rain, and laid my hand gently on her brow. She started up, saying, "Who is here?" "Hush!" I replied; "it is I." "What do you want here?"

Native Americans -- in particular -- don't take too kindly to having their 'wings clipped.' One miserable day when my pupils first took in the filaments of early morning, I moaned in pain and cursed my existence. Then, one magic day, a kind patient across the hall brought me my very first copy of The Paper. I read the chuckles and my laughter could be heard down the hospital halls. It was that loud. Scared the cider out of my doctors who came running to my bedside! When they found out that the cause of my sudden 'turn in life' was a newspaper, well, they just stood and looked at each other! The orthopedist quipped, "Hell, maybe we should have this damned newspaper in all the patients' rooms!" It was only a matter of time that the doctors discovered a small stack of The Paper under my pillow. When it came time for my injections on my stomach I began crying all over again, then one of the doctors got a bright idea: "Let him hold the stack of those newspapers." They did. And I hugged them and stopped crying.

"Ah!" said he, “you are going on a war-excursion, my friend?"
''No," I answered. "We came to see which way you are going to move, how many days you will travel, and how far each day; so that we may find good places to encamp, and know where to find the village in case we should encounter the enemy." "You are very kind," said he; "then you intend to be my spy. I have many brothers and other relatives among the braves, but not one has ever made me that offer." "No," thought I, "they don't care as much about your wife as I do."
''Go," said he, "and the Great Spirit will protect you."
I then left, accompanied by my six warriors. The second day out, in the afternoon, as we were traveling slowly along, I discovered, at about a mile distance, a party of twenty-seven Black Foot warriors, just emerging from the Bad Pass. We immediately retraced our steps toward home, and traveled all night, until we arrived within three miles of the village. When within sight, we telegraphed with the aid of a small looking-glass, which the Crow scouts usually carry, and every motion of which is understood in the village. I made a sig-

Thanksgiving in a Crazy World
This Thanksgiving as we surround ourselves with family and friends to give thanks for our many blessings, most of us will also take a few minutes to give thanks for this land of peace, abundance and liberty.
Today much of the world is descending into chaos. Leaders here and abroad seem to lack either the ability or the will to confront the depravity sweeping much of the globe. While we are separated from world hot-spots by vast oceans and thousands of miles, recent events in Paris, Beirut, Egypt and elsewhere serve to remind us that no place is really safe and that eternal vigilance is not only the price of liberty, it is increasingly necessary for our very survival. Even so, we Americans have a great deal to be thankful for. We live in a nation founded on the rule of law, where all men are created
entertainment by “The MusicStation” duo will put us in the mood of the Christmas Season. Also, to help with that will be several vendors selling their crafts, before the meeting, during lunch, and afterwards. Lunch will be a traditional Christmas feast. If there are women in the community looking for a wonderful place to go to get involved in philanthropic projects and make new friends, please call Nora at 760.743.0246 for a reservation. Cost of the catered lunch is $12/person. The meeting is at the EWC clubhouse at 751 No. Rose (corner Mission Avenue), Escondido (behind the church).
2nd Tuesday Book Club to Discuss “Off Course” – The Escondido Public Library invites readers to join the 2nd Tuesday Book Club meeting on December 8, at 6pm in the Turrentine Room. This month’s selection is Off Course by Michelle Huneven. The year is 1981, Reagan is in the White House, and the country is stalled in a recession. Cressida Hartley, a gifted Ph.D. student in economics, moves into her parents' shabby A-frame cabin in the Sierras to write her dissertation. Off Course is Michelle Huneven’s most intimate and emotionally compelling novel, telling the story of Cressida as she delves into life in a mountain community to escape the trip wires of her life. Future Book Club dates are January 12th, with The Liar’s Wife by Mary Gordon. The selection for February 9 is the non-fiction Isaac's Storm: a man, a time, and the deadliest hurricane in history by Erik Larson. The Library is located at 239 S. Kalmia St., downtown Escondido. All Library programs are sponsored by Friends of the Library and are free to the public. For more information,

equal with God-given freedoms that are inviolate. In addition, our military and our first responders remain vigilant and always ready to defend our safety, our freedom and our lives.
Thanksgiving, which commemorates the Pilgrims first harvest in America in 1621, has come to mean much more than the simple remembrance of a small band of settlers surviving on a wilderness shore. It symbolizes recognition of all our blessings as human beings, as Americans, and our hopes and prayers for the future.
We should always give thanks for the blessings bestowed upon us by our Creator as free human beings. Whatever our beliefs, we should be thankful for our families, our homes, our liberties and, especially during this time of trial, for the men and women willing to put their lives on the line to protect us all.

Valley Center Museum To Reopen – The Museum, closed for the past 90 days to expand its building, will reopen on Tuesday, December 8th, with 50 percent more exhibition space, new displays, and expanded hours. There is still free admission to all. The museum’s popular signature exhibit, the California Grizzly Bear, remains unchanged. Visitors entering the gallery will be greeted by an airplane soaring from the cathedral-like ceiling and beneath it a stagecoach that played an important role in American history. The stagecoach, which provided transportation from Valley Center into Escondido for decades at the turn of the century, had earlier served as a Civil War ambulance and later was featured in several cowboy movies. It has been fully restored. The airplane is a model of the craft flown by a V.C. pilot credited with the first power flight west of the Mississippi. Visitors also will find an expanded Museum Store with souvenirs, books on local history, note cards, and T-shirts featuring the Grizzly. The public opening will be preceded on December 6 by a Dedication Ceremony and preview for museum members and donors. Regular hours starting December 8 will be Tuesday through Saturday from 12noon to 4pm.

nal that I had discovered the enemy, and a second that they were approaching. In a moment I could discover a great stir in the village. When we arrived, I reported to his honor, Big Rain, how many we had seen, what tribe they were, where they had passed the previous night, and where they could then be found. The chief then ordered his madam to bring us some water, an order she complied with, smiling coquettishly at me the while. I then retired to my lodge to change my dress, as portions of it were stained with our travel through the mountains. While I was in my lodge, madam came over with a splendid war-horse, which her husband had sent me, on which to return and fight the Black Feet I had just discovered. She said, "My husband has sent this war-horse to the Bloody Arm, and requests him to lead the Crows to the enemy." I was soon on the road, with enough mounted warriors to eat the whole party of the enemy; for they were only a short distance from our village, and, desirous of excitement, every one wished to go. Judging where the enemy would encamp that night, we traveled on until we arrived near the anticipated encampment.
Previous to starting, my little wife, who, by being the wife of a great brave, was as good as any woman, wished to bear me company and carry my shield. But I refused her, alleging that the danger was too great, and promising to paint her face when I returned. One of my sisters then volunteered, and I accepted her offer, taking her with me to carry my shield and lead my war-horse.
As soon as it was light enough in the morning, I sent out small parties in all directions to look for their trail, that we might track them to their den. In ten or fifteen minutes after the parties left, we heard the report of a gun, and the war-hoop raised. The Crows assembled in the direction of the report, all drawing toward a centre. When I arrived, I saw that the Black Feet had chosen a strong position, and that we had another fort to storm. It was built partly by nature, but human industry had improved the stronghold. It was low water, and there was a pile of drift on a naked sand-bar, and trees had been felled from the bank upon the drift-pile, forming quite a shelter. Over this position the enemy was placed, protected with a breast-work formed of timber taken from the drift. When I reached the ground, I saw two of our reckless braves talking carelessly under the enemy in this in closed space, as if they had been in a secure lodge. I regarded them for a moment, and, thinking to display as much bravery as they had, I dismounted and ran to the place, although several shots were fired at me from the fort, none of which took effect.

The Real Monument Men
Some 350 military and civilians worked feverishly during the closing days of World War II to save the irreplaceable art treasures that the Nazis had plundered from museums, galleries, and private citizens across Western Europe.
President Franklin Roosevelt was convinced by art scholars and archivists of the importance of saving the fine art the Nazis had plundered. He ordered the formation of the “Museum, Fine Arts & Archive” unit right before his death in 1945. They had to hurry, because Hitler had ordered everything destroyed upon his death. As fast as the Allied forces were pushing into Germany, his date with final destiny was days away. The recovery program was a joint

Allied effort, primarily made up of American, French, British, Dutch, and Belgium art, archive, and architectural experts. Many of those men and women were middle-aged and older — years beyond serving in the military, yet they eagerly put on a uniform, even took a few weeks of basic training before embarking on their quest. They followed the Allied forces, locating art treasures before the Germans had a chance to destroy them. From the U.S., experts and curators of the National Gallery, the Metropolitan Art Gallery, and the New York City Ballet, plus British and French historians and museum curators, all joined in the quest for the Nazi plunder. Some 1,000 or more troves (location) and hideaways of art and sculpture was recovered in many high-ranking German officers’ and officials’ residences. Reichmarshall Hermann Goering’s home had one of the largest collections of paintings. A total of more than 5 million pieces of priceless archives, art, books, tapestries, sculptures, and other fine-art pieces were recovered.
While the Museum, Fine Arts and Archives Unit was disbanded in 1946, treasures continue to be recovered to this day. One little reported fact was the role women played in the “Monument Men” project. One of the most important figures was Rose Valland, who was a Louvre

“What are you here for?" inquired one of them of me.
"In the first place," I said, "tell me what you are here for."
"Why we are old warriors, and you are not." "If I am not an old warrior," I answered, "I will be one."
I then regarded the rough flooring over head, which separated us from our foes, and perceived an aperture hardly large enough to admit my fist. I stood under it a moment, and as the warriors were moving about, one of them stepped over the aperture and remained there. I thrust my lance up with my whole force, and drew

"Yes, yes, we see it. You have done well, young brave!" "Well," said I, "you can stay here out of danger; but I am going out to my warriors, and then to storm the fort." I ran back with the same success that I had entered it, brandishing my dripping lance, and ordered a charge, which was obeyed as soon as given. In five minutes there was not a Black Foot left within alive. They made scarcely any defense, so sudden and overwhelming was the shock.

We then returned home, and, notwithstanding our slain warrior, we celebrated a dance, and devoted the next day to mourning our loss.

Lots of people pass through that parking lot every day, crossing the two traffic lanes to get to the store. For some reason, I noticed the older lady who walked a little slower than others, a little slower than she once did. Crossing the traffic lanes seemed to take a long time. Then, she did something we all do at one time or another.
You know, we pull ourselves into the car, reaching for the handle over the door. We grip the banister when we start up or down a staircase. Even if there isn’t a provided device for us, we use whatever is available. If you’ve ever walked through a moving train, steadying yourself with the
As she neared the post, she reached out her hand. For a moment I thought she might need it for balance, ot to rest for a moment before going on to her shopping.
But, no. She reached out to the post, touched it lightly without even breaking her pace and went into the store. She hadn’t needed the post, but her light touch told me that she was glad it was there. Perhaps it boosted her confidence.
I thought about the woman in the Gospels, debilitated by illness most of her life. All she wanted was to “touch the hem” of Jesus’ garment. Just lightly touch his clothing, not unlike the lady making her way across the parking lot. Just a touch. Both these women needed assurance. One for strength, the other for hope. Just as the iron post provided rest and renewal of strength, Jesus offered hope for the long suffering woman.
He offers us the strength that is greater than iron and a hope for a better future.

George said, "Okay." He hung up the phone and counted to 30. Then he phoned the police again. "Hello, I just called you a few seconds ago because there were people stealing things from my shed. Well, you don't have to worry about them now because I just shot and killed them both; the dogs are eating them right now," and he hung up. Within five minutes, six Police Cars, a SWAT Team, a Helicopter, two Fire Trucks, a Paramedic and an Ambulance showed up at the Phillips' residence, and caught the burglars red-handed.

to send me her extra moccasins, in order to lash them together with my own on my pack-dog, and to appoint a place to meet me that evening. My sister was astonished, and said, "Is it possible that you intend to take Ba-chua-hish-a (Red Cherry) with you? Why, we shall all become poor! We shall not have a horse to ride! But I don't care; she is a pretty woman, and will make a good robe-dresser." Away she hied, and soon returned with my lady's moccasins. Ah, ah! thought I, I am all right now! I expected that the course of true love would not run very smooth with me in the end, but would, on the contrary, carry me over breakers which would most probably break my neck; but I fortified myself with the old adage, "Faint heart never won fair lady," and I determined to hazard all consequences.
The appointed time had arrived, and, on going to the place of assignation, I found my lady true to her word — in fact, she was there first. We joined the party, thirtyfour in number, and traveled all night in the direction of the Black Foot country. On the sixth day, at nightfall, we arrived at the Mussel Shell River, a little below the mouth of the Judith, and in sight of a village of the enemy. I looked out a good place for a reserve camp, and then, selecting eighteen of the most expert horsethieves, we started for the village. We succeeded in capturing one

hundred and seventeen horses without being discovered, and arrived safe with them at the camp. We all started immediately back for the village. The warriors took but two horses each, giving the rest to me and my new wife. Meanwhile, Big Rain made discovery of the loss of his wife, and was greatly disturbed in mind. My father, knowing the aggressor, commenced giving away to his near relatives all his choicest stock and other valuable property, until the storm should blow over.
When we rode in, the people came out to meet us, rejoicing at our success. Big Rain was out likewise; he took no part in the rejoicing, however, but ordered his wife and me to be surrounded. I was seized by Big Rain, together with half a dozen of his sisters, all armed with scourges, and they administered a most unmerciful whipping. I lay down to it, and received it with true Indian fortitude, though I certainly did think they would beat me to death. If I had resisted, they would have been justified in killing me; also, if they had drawn one drop of blood from me, I should have been justified in taking their lives. They laid it on so unmercifully, that I became angry, and hoped they would draw blood. After the flagellation was performed, the next penalty was, to strip my father and myself of all our horses and other effects (our warimplements excepted). My father was stripped of five hundred horses. I lost about eighty. "Pretty dear for a very pretty woman," thought I. However, I

The doctors knew. The opthalmologist who saved my eyes, the orthopedic surgeon who rebuilt my leg with titanium, the specialist who first discovered the hematoma that bled in my brain, well, in short, all of them knew . . . they knew that laughter can sometimes be the best medicine the world has ever known. And THE PAPER gave me that medicine each and every Thursday! Once, when my physical therapist took me outside for the first time to practice walking, she asked me, "White Eagle, where do you want to go first?" That was an easy question for me. "Take me out to the front entrance, where the newspaper racks are," I nearly begged. She walked me slowly, holding onto me with her arms. When I got within 10' of the stack of papers, I excitedly said, "Now let me go, let me walk the rest of the way by myself, please . . . " With great apprehension, she slowly let go and I slowly walked -- teetering now and then, which caused her to gasp -- and I slowly made my way, like a small child, and picked up my own copy of THE PAPER -- by myself! As melodramatic as that moment may seem to you, it
soon had my horses made up to me by presents from my friends.
We performed the horse-dance that night, though I danced without owning one. During the amusement I conveyed word to the wife of Big Rain that I should go out again the next night, and should expect her company, appointing her to meet me at the same place as before. She returned a favorable answer. My little wife hauled me over the coals for stealing a married woman, when there were enough maidens in the village that I could select. I told her that I wished to have the Handsomest woman in the village for my lodge.
The appointed hour arrived, and Big Rain's wife was faithful to her promise. We started off with only seventeen warriors. We were gone four days, and returned with three scalps. We met a war-party of nine warriors, six of whom outstripped us and escaped. On my return I was again seized, and received another such a flogging as the first, laid on with equal good-will.
After my dressing, I retired to my lodge, when a woman approached me bearing some burden in her arms. She addressed me: "Here is something will gladden your heart; he will make as great a brave as his father: his name is Black Panther. Here, look at your child." Sure enough, my little wife had presented me with a son, who is at this present time (1855) first counselor of the Crow nation.

Two nights afterward, I started on a third expedition with a party of sixty-three warriors, my new wife accompanying me for the third time. We took a southerly course toward the country of the Black Feet, and captured near two hundred head of horses, with which we returned home by way of the fort. On arriving at the fort, I found that my services were required, and that they were about to dispatch a courier after me on business of great importance. I told the commander that I must go home with my party, but that I would return to the fort with the least possible delay. Accordingly we started on. On the road we fell in with a small party of trappers, who were under the conduct of an old schoolmate of mine, David Adams. They seemed greatly dejected, and I inquired of them the cause. Adams then related that he had been robbed of every thing he possessed by some of his men confederated with a number of my Indians, and that they had sent him off in the forlorn condition in which I now saw him. I asked him to describe the appearance of the Indians who took part in robbing him. “One of the party," said he, "was not an Indian, but a mulatto."
"There was no mulatto when I left," I answered, "and you must be mistaken." "No," he replied, "I am not. You will find him there on your

Unknown to the Nazis, Valland spoke German, but didn’t reveal that fact to them as they hauled away priceless works of art. She kept careful records and when the Allied “Monument Men” came to Paris, she was able to direct them to the location of most of the artwork looted from the Louvre. She was a spy in plain sight, right under the noses of the Nazis. Had they known her secret, she no doubt would have been shot or hauled off to a concentration camp. Australian actress Cate Blanchett portrays Ms. Valland in the current film, “Monument Men,” now playing in theatres. Ironically, another hero of sorts, was German Gen. Dietrich von Cholititz, the “governor” of the Nazi forces occupying Paris. Many in the French resistance considered von Cholititz as the “Savior of Paris.” Hitler had given him specific orders that if Paris was to fall back to the Allies, he was ordered to destroy the city, including the iconic Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, Napoleon’s tomb, everything that was Paris. But as the Germans retreated back to the Fatherland, General Von Cholititz stayed behind, refused to follow his orders and personally surrendered the city as the Allies entered the city.
One of the great mysteries of World War II is: what happened to the Amber Room? I’ll have more on this priceless art piece, which the Germans looted from Peter the Great’s palace in St. Petersburg, taking it back to Germany. Be sure and see “Monument Men,” now playing at most area theaters. It’ll give you a microscopic look at what this effort was all about.

(Now, Frederick . . . get busy! Go write another cover story!) Alliances With Our Terrorist Buddies
It is a sad indictment of the lack of openness in our government that we have to find out the 'news behind the news' by looking at websites such as Wikileaks. This is demonstrated by the editorial in the Tuesday issue (Nov. 17) of the San Diego Union Tribune entitled "Response to Paris? Target Terror Donors." Here is a direct quote from this editorial: "Donors in Saudi Arabia constitute the most significant source of funding to Sunni terrorist groups worldwide," thenSecretary of State Hillary Clinton wrote in a secret December 2009 memo revealed by WikiLeaks hackers. Wealthy Sunnis in Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kuwait and the United Arab Emirates are also intimately involved in funding these groups. We have known this for over six years, but kept it tucked under the rug because we continually support alliances with the governments of these countries, all of which are hostile to the U.S.

Assets Acquired Before Marriage
My husband had considerable assets before we married, including our house, a rental and a substantial stock porfolio. He said I could live in the house for my lifetime and he would always provide income for me.
He now has a serious illness. His three children are saying that everything will go to them as he doesn’t have a will. Worried
You have reason to be worried
Coincidentally, fifteen of the nineteen terrorists who were responsible for the 9/11 attack in Y2001 on the World Trade Center were Saudi Arabian citizens.
It’s high time that we, and this includes France, Germany, and Russia, shut down all sources of funding for these terrorists. By reducing the resources available to them, it will make attacks like that of November 13 in Paris, and the Russian Airbus A321 over Egypt's Sinai, less likely to happen. If this approach damages our alliances with the governments of Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kuwait and the United Arab Emirates, so be it. With friends like these, who needs enemies. /s/Sorab Ghandhi Escondido CA
Letters to the Editor are always welcome Try to keep them to 250 words or less. As always, The Paper reserves the right to edit for content and for space. Send your submissions to: firstname.lastname@example.org but it is not as bad as you might think. The rules for community property and separate property are quite different. Your husband’s assets from before you were married -- assuming he has kept them separate, are his separate property. Without a will, his separate property will go 2/3 to his children and 1/3 to you. (With one child, it would be 1/2 to the child and 1/2 to the spouse). In any event, this would be after a complex and lengthy probate.
You should talk with him about doing a trust NOW, while he is still competent maybe giving you a right to live in the home for your lifetime, in addition to income from some of his assets. There are several options, which will provide for you and leave substantial assets to provide for his children.

Tooth Preservation or Implant Placement
Long term tooth versus implant survival rates
Technological advances in the development of implants to replace "hopeless" or missing teeth along with a high predictability of survival rates has lead to the increasing popularity and clinical success of implants. This could result in the extraction of a person's natural teeth, that are salvageable, on the convenience rather than as a result of a comparative analysis between the survival of a natural tooth and its implant counterpart. Faced with the option of restoring a natural tooth versus extracting it and placing a dental implant, the doctor should take the following as well as others into consideration:
1. Is the tooth or area restorable? 2. Will it be strong? 3. What is the long term prognosis of the tooth vs. implant? 4. Compliance of the individual for maintaining the tooth or implant? 5. Does patient have systemic condition ie. diabetes, heart conditions, periodontal conditions. Also, smoking status. 6. Past experiences with patients tooth loss? 7. Long term survival of individual?
These are just a few factors affecting the patient. Financially, the patient should consider the cost of implants as well. They may not make a lot of difference with a single tooth, but if multiple sites are proposed, the cost factor can go up tremendously. If the tooth is restored in many cases, it can have a survivability that may equal, or even outlast the prognosis of an implant. Implants require good bone to survive, and if the bone is not adequate, additional bone must be provided to the site including bone grafts and/or sinus lifts, etc. This may also add to both the expense and time required to place an implant. After an implant fails, the next step is placing another implant.
Researchers report significantly lower success rates for reimplantation than for the original implant. With a tooth that started in the mouth by nature, if it is restorable, it frequently will last a long time without the amount of bone required by an implant.
There are many things to consider in deciding whether to place an implant versus restoring the tooth. As doctors we have patients come in every day with the idea of removing a tooth and placing an implant. On the other hand, we, as practitioners, have to resist the impulse to automatically go with the patient's wishes look-
ing more thoroughly at the overall results. If the bone is adequate and the natural tooth cannot be restored then the implant is chosen. However, in many cases, the patient is not adequately informed as to the survivability of the proposed implant and it is our responsibility to inform them of situations where the natural tooth may be the better choice in the long term. We do both procedures here at San Marcos Dental Center, but we thoroughly evaluate both options before suggesting a solution. Call us at 760 7344311!

Malware and You II - Social Engineering Exploits
Last week we discussed some defensive strategies that help users (you) avoid malware. We ended with the comment that none of these measures can protect you from “Social Engineering Exploits.” “Social Engineering” is the broad term for the means used to induce you to accept an invitation or perform an act that allows them to “exploit” you to achieve their purpose. They appeal to your personal likes, dislikes, fears, greed, sympathy, compassion, paranoia, lust or pet perversions. They exploit you by appealing to the best and the worst of human nature. Teams of highly skilled criminals create the sophisticated PC programs we call “Malware.” Once inside your PC these programs set about achieving their
assigned tasks using your OS (operating system) and hardware. Their tasks may be to make you a target for ads, guide you to unwanted sites, report your browsing habits, mine your keystrokes for passwords and other personal data, establish your PC as a “robot” in a criminal network known as a “botnet,” use your e-mail account, steal your identity or extort money from you. The way they get their sophisticated exploits into your PC are often decidedly “low tech.” They may impersonate your bank, credit card issuer, E-mail service or some other trusted source like Adobe or Microsoft. They will ask you to update your security information, click on a link or contact them by phone. They may contact you by mail or phone requesting that you return their call or click a link. They may contact you by an Email from a trusted friend or an official notice from the IRS, DOJ, FBI, DHS, ICE, CIA or any State or local law enforcement agency. They may send you an Email masquerading as your water, telephone or electric utility, cable or internet provider. You may get a notice by phone or on screen that “Windows” wants to help you with a computer problem. You may get an Email appeal from a dear friend who has been mugged in Istanbul or Timbuktu and needs money. Then there is the widow of a government official that needs your help in getting $35 million
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.
“The Disc Itself Is Active Tissue...”
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

Who falls for this kind of stuff? You would be amazed. Perhaps only one person out of a ten thousand will respond to a particular exploit, but if they send out a million copies they’ll get a hundred victims. There are thousands of different exploits, each one aimed at a particular human frailty and there are three and a quarter billion Internet users. No matter how narrow or esoteric the exploit and no matter how tiny the percentage of Internet users that might respond, there are thousands if not millions of potential victims. Even the International
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. 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.
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. 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. Dr. Stephen Heilman, DC at the Spine and Neuropathy Care Center in Escondido, CA will do a spinal disc severity examination to determine the

Crews were able to confine the fire to the dryer and had it controlled within 15 minutes. The fire appears to have started due to an accumulation of lint in the exhaust vent. Damage is estimated at $400. There were no injuries. Safety Message: Be sure to clean out lint screen when drying clothes and clean out exhaust vent frequently.

"Well," said I, "get up and return to the village with me; I will sift this matter to the bottom." He declined to accompany me. "They told me, if I returned," he urged, "that they would kill us all; and I dare not go back." "Come with me," I said. "If there is any killing to be done, I will have a hand in it."
He at length consented to return with me. On gaining the village, I rode up to my father's lodge, and said, "How is this? You allow white men to be robbed in the village, directly under your eyes!

able, like the other tribes? Have I not often told you of the immense number of white warriors; that they were like the sand of the prairie — as the leaves of the forest?" "Hold, my son! I had nothing to do in the matter. My heart was sorrowful when I heard of the crime. It was High Lance who committed it."
"Then I will go and kill him, or be killed myself," said I; and away I sped to the lodge of High Lance. "Go with him exclaimed my brothers and "He is mad; go
— go with him!" father to all my relatives around. and protect him."
I advanced to High Lance, who was standing at his lodge, who, on seeing me approach, stepped in
‘Journey West’ Cont. on Page 14

‘Journey West’ Cont. from Page 13
and shut his door. I dismounted, and tore his door down in an instant, and demanded of him what he had been doing. I remarked that his lodge was extremely well supplied with goods.
"High Lance," said I, in an authoritative tone, "restore to these men their horses without one moment's delay." "I have taken no horses," said he, sullenly. "Send for them in an instant," said I.
By, this time my Dog Soldiers, the bravest men in the nation, were surrounding me. "What does our chief want?" demanded they.
I told them that I wanted all the goods taken out of the lodge of High Lance, for that he had assisted to steal them from a white man, who was my friend. Instantly the lodge was hoisted, and torn into a thousand pieces, and High Lance, the mulatto, and eleven white men, were exposed to plain view. I then accosted the mulatto: "What are you doing here, you black velvet-headed scoundrel? You come here in my absence to put the devil into the heads of the Indians, who are bad enough already? I will have your scalp torn off, you consummate villain!" The poor fellow was frightened almost to death, and trembled in every joint. He replied, "The Crows gave me liberty to stay here and trap in their country, and —" "Not another word," interrupted I; "though I will hang you, at any rate."
Then, turning to the eleven renegade white men, I said, "I give you just five minutes to leave the village; if you are longer in going, I will order my warriors to scalp every one of you. You assume to be white men, and yet think no more of yourselves than to enter an Indian village and set such an example to the savages; whereas, if they were to treat you in such a manner, you would think death too light a punishment. You rob your own race, and forbid their return to the village under pain of death, allying yourselves with the worst Indian in the tribe. After stripping your victim, you forcibly deprive him of his few trusty followers, and bid him go through these trackless wilds, filled with murderous savages, who, had they come across him, would have murdered him before he reached the fort."
I rated them thus soundly, but not one offered to lift his hand. The stolen horses were very quickly forthcoming, and the purloined property was readily produced. I restored it to my friend before them. "Now," I said, addressing the gang, "you can return to the fort with Mr. Adams; but if I hear that you offer to molest him in any way, your scalps shall pay for it."
Then, turning to the mulatto, I said, "You have instigated all this
mischief, and I should only be doing my duty to put my threat into execution, and hang you as I promised. However, you can go to the fort with these men. I shall be there about as soon as you will, and I will attend to your case then. I'll see if I can not teach you better than to come among the Crows again." Mr. Adams belonged to Captain Bonneville's company, and was leader of a party of about twenty men; he had come into the Crow country for the purpose of trading and trapping. The mulatto had arrived previously, and had brought a Canadian with him: the mulatto could speak the Crow language tolerably well. He had become acquainted with High Lance, who was a bad Indian, and had relations as bad as himself; and through this clique he had obtained permission to stay and trap in the country. On the arrival of Mr. Adams, the mulatto made himself very familiar with his men, representing to them that they were fools to travel for hire, when they could stay among the Crows with him and do so much better. By these arguments he induced eleven of Mr. Adams's party to desert him, when, with the participation of High Lance and other bad Indians, they stripped him of all his goods. Mr. Adams expressed his warmest thanks to me for my interference. I told him I had only done my duty, as I always had done in like cases, and should continue to do as long as I remained with the Crows. This business settled, I received a third sound thrashing from my new wife's husband and relatives for again making free with his wife.
After the lapse of three days I left for the fort, again taking my friend's lady. Her husband, finding that I was incorrigible, grew furious, and declared he only wished to have me in his power once more. My Dog Soldiers said to him, "You have whipped him three times, and you shall whip him no more, neither shall you do him any farther harm. Red Cherry loves him, and she does not love you; she will always go with him. You might as well try to turn Big Horn back to its mountain sources as to attempt to separate them, unless you kill them. You would not be so cowardly as to spill the blood of the pretty Red Cherry because she loves our chief. If you should fight him, he will kill you; and if you should assassinate him, we would avenge his death. No, no! Big Rain must not hurt our chief. But we will buy your claim to the Red Cherry, and give her to Red Arm for his own. You, a great chief, should despise to want a woman who loves another warrior better than you!"
Big Rain drooped his head on finding the Dog Soldiers were against him, and gave way to deep reverie. He loved the Red Cherry as children love the delicious fruit bearing the same name. After weighing the matter well, he reluctantly acceded to the offer, and consented to resign all interest and title in Mrs. Big Rain for the consideration of one warhorse, ten guns, ten chiefs' coats, scarlet cloth, ten pairs of new leggins, and the same number of
The stipulation was forthwith produced by my faithful Dog Soldiers, and I had the exclusive right to the Red Cherry, without the fear of a drubbing every time I returned.
Such acts are as common among the Rocky Mountain tribes as they have been among the whites in California since the discovery of gold there, though in the latter place, the penalty is frequently more severe than among the wild tribes of the mountains and prairies.
My new wife was the perfection of symmetry. Few of the Caucasian race could boast of handsomer features, and nothing but the rich olive color of the skin betrayed her Indian origin. Big Rain always regarded me with an evil eye after the transaction, and several times attempted to induce the lady to return to him. Many warriors, whose wives had played truant, had cut off their noses to deprive them of their attractions. I told Red Cherry that if ever she should return to Big Rain, he would surely serve her so. She never manifested any disposition to leave me; and my engagement to the American Fur Company enabled me to dress my wives better than any other woman in the whole nation. It was now early spring, and I started for the fort. Before I left, I told the Crows what time I wished them to follow me with their peltry.
On my arrival, I was informed that a Mr. Johnson Gardner had bought quite a large lot of goods, which he had taken to his camp, eighteen miles down the river. The morning after my arrival, three men were dispatched from the fort to acquaint him that I had come. I had two hundred warriors with me; and on the night of our arrival we formed a camp and turned out the horses, not apprehending any danger. Early in the morning one of my followers went out to fetch up the horses, when he found them all missing, and the trail visible on which they had been taken away. The alarm was instantly given, and I ran to the top of the hill to take a general survey. I saw two objects on the ice, which appeared to me to be men; and this excited my apprehensions that they were two of the men dispatched from the fort, as they lay in the direction which they had taken. I collected my warriors instantly for the pursuit, placing all our women and children in the fort. I ordered some of the white men down on the ice to bring in the supposed bodies. Alas! my suspicions proved too true! All three men had been butchered, and when we rode up their bodies were scarcely cold. The eyes of the warriors flashed fire, and, without delaying a moment, on we swept in pursuit of revenge. We traveled about thirty miles (each man leading his war-horse), and our saddle-horses were beginning to tire, and we saw nothing of the enemy. Darkness would close over us, we feared, before we could overtake them. We then mounted our warhorses, which were as swift as the wind, and, leaving the saddlehorses behind, on we went faster
than ever. Darkness was already upon us, when we came in sight of a large fire in the distance. "Now, boys, we have them !" cried I.
We rode on until we neared the camp of the enemy, as we supposed, and then I examined their position previous to the onset. Just as I was about to give the order to charge, I heard a voice from the camp saying, "Throw them in! D—n them, throw them in!" I then saluted the camp, shouting at the top of my voice, "Halloo the camp! Don't shoot, boys; we are Crows! I am Jim Beckwourth!"
I then rode up with my whole party, and found that they had taken two prisoners from the very party we were in pursuit of, and under the following circumstances: The pursued party rode up to the camp, and several of them dismounted, among whom was Antoine Garro (a Canadian half-breed), well known in St. Louis. Garro could speak tolerably good English. He accosted Gardner with "How d'do? You have got a good fire."
"Who are you," inquired Gardner, "that you speak English?" "My name is Garro."
"What Indians are those with you?"
"Oh, they are good Indians; they will not hurt you."
Gardner discovered that too many were dismounting and crowding round his camp; and he perceived that many of them rode in the direction of his horses, and he became alarmed, as he well might be at his situation.
"Garro," said he, again, "tell me, what Indians are these?"
"They are Re-ka-ras," said he; "they have borrowed your horses, but they will bring them back again." He said this as he saw Gardner look in the direction of his horses. "Re-ka-ras!" repeated Gardner. "To your guns, men; seize them!" Old Garro stepped away with an accelerated pace, and two only of the Indians were arrested. Garro stood off at a safe distance, and demanded the two Indians.
"You can not have them until you bring me my horses," said Gardner.
"Then we will have the tops of your heads," threatened the old rascal. "Yes, you would have the tops of our heads; but come and take them, if you can."
They rode off, taking every horse that Gardner possessed; and if he had not been on the alert, they would have taken a few scalps as well.

Political Correctness and the Military by Terry M. Badger
It was a time of social turmoil, but little could we have predicted what lasting effects the social changes of the early 1970s would have on our lives and the well-being of this great country.
The Stanford Indians had just finished two incredible football seasons, beating #1 Ohio State 27-17 in the 1971 Rose Bowl, and Michigan 12-10 in 1972. Jim Plunkett had become Stanford’s first (and still only) Heisman trophy winner in 1970, and he was known as the real Stanford Indian. Although Jim thinks he may have some Indian blood, it has never been established. About that time, a small group of Native North Americans (Indians) approached Stanford to get rid of the “Indian” as their mascot, as they felt it was demeaning and offensive to the small group. The leadership at Stanford, not being used to “demands,” took the protest seriously, and all the liberalism latent at Stanford during the Vietnam war, found a cause they could get their teeth into. In spite of the outrage of most of the students and almost all of the alumni, as well as Timm Williams, a full blooded Indian who had performed as Prince Lightfoot at Stanford sporting events for many years, the administration denounced the Indian, and Stanford went back to being a color (cardinal) and a tree (Sequoia). In Stanford’s view, it was better to offend tens of thousands of students and alumni then a few hundred Native North Americans. For me, it is incredible to believe Indians wouldn’t feel honored to represent an elite educational institution like Stanford. Think Aztecs, Fighting Irish, Braves, Yankees, etc. When a similar group tried to outlaw Seminoles at Florida State, the Seminole Nation rose as one and said, in effect, Florida State is and shall forever remain the Seminoles. Too bad Stanford wasn’t as astute, as this action cost Stanford millions of dollars in alumni donations for years to come. Unhealthy Political Correctness was born! Fast forward to today. The military has been wrestling with the problem of females in the military. First of all, let me be very clear here. The question of females in the military has little to do with ability. There are many women who can hold their own with men in ability as pilots, marksmen, planners, and strategists. But the problem becomes real when men and women are mixed together aboard ships and in combat situations. Women’s nature is different from men’s! It is men’s nature to be the hunter, to be the fighter, and to be pursuers of women for mates. On the other hand, women’s nature is to bear children, nurture, and be attractors of men for mates. This is human nature, and no amount of political correctness can alter these facts. Women in combat units lower that intangible but so important esprit d’ corps, that camaraderie that evokes positive results over and above the unit’s abilities. Many times,
when well-trained and well-equipped units square off against each other, the outcome will depend on who wants to win the most. The units with the strongest esprit d’ corps will win every time.
Political Correctness has dictated that the military be an equal opportunity organization, as espoused by a recent editorial in the San Diego Union Tribune, which basically inspired the need for this article. And here I must be most emphatic. The military absolutely CANNOT be an equal opportunity organization, nor is it an appropriate place for social experiments. The role of the military is to protect and defend the people and interests of the United States of America with the most efficient and effective force available. This is not possible with mixed combat units. Not only is esprit d’ corps adversely effected, but as a group, a mixed unit just isn’t as good as an all-male unit. This has been proven many times in training exercises, and why the military’s leadership continues to ignore this fact, can only reflect on the inability of today’s military leaders to lead. Are they victims of the ramifications of Political Correctness? In my opinion, most certainly. They’d rather keep their jobs or be promoted than do what is best for the country.
The Navy has spent tens of billions of dollars converting their ships of the line(warships) to co-ed facilities. Not only was this fiscally irresponsible, it had a dilatorious effect on fleet readiness, and readiness is the fundamental guideline by which military units are measured. The cases of sexual harassment have increased exponentially since women were introduced to the mainstream military. Of course, fault for this is shared between the sexes, but the bottom line would be dramatically reduced if there weren’t sexually mixed units. In short, we simply cannot afford the luxury of mixed combat units, as politically attractive as that might sound to some. Retired Marine Colonel Marianne Waldrop of Carlsbad was the subject of Fred Dickey’s recent U-T column, and the colonel had some most interesting comments. She loves the Marines, loved her 24 years of active duty in intelligence, many of which were in Iraq, Afghanistan and Africa. She is strongly against women in combat units. Here are some of her thoughts on the matter. Small numbers of women, she believes, being isolated among many men in close quarters would intensify the risk of sexual assault, that existing under combat conditions of great stress, fear, and erratic emotions would put women at great risk of rape and sexual assault. “We currently have,” she says, “what some call an epidemic of sexual assault in the Marine Corps. Many of those instances occur in garrison, a controlled environment. The genesis of sexual assault, if not contributed to by alcohol, is power. Somebody wants to exert power over another. If you want to talk about abuse of power, let’s talk about putting a woman in an all-male organization if those men resent it and are resistant…..These are younger guys in remote, isolated situations.” Psychiatrist Judith Lewis Herman, in
her treatise “Trauma and Recovery” says, “Combat and rape (are) forms of organized social violence, (and) are (phenomena) of early adult life. The average age of the Vietnam combat soldier was 19…..Half of all rape victims are 20 or younger. Rape and combat might thus be considered complementary initiation into the coercive violence of adult society.”
There are other problems with women in combat units. Waldrop refers to a recent Marine experiment to welcome female volunteers to undergo the infantry officers’ training course. 27 female lieutenants volunteered. She says they were motivated women in good shape, but none made it past day three. The training regimen was not even for special forces, but for what infantry officers routinely go through. She believes that exposing women to these rigors raises the risk of serious injury to an unacceptable level. But there is also the problem of time. She creates a hypothetical Marine. “She’s 22 and in the best shape ever. Her first tour goes great. However, they don’t make people do combat arms (infantry) their whole career. They pull them out…into a desk job for a time. Now she’s 26 and may be married or in a relationship. She may have children. Now she’s called back into combat arms duty because that’s her profession, and she has to get back to that level of condition of a 22 year old…..For women who are making relationship choices, child choices, family choices, do they have the incentive to want to continue that?” There remain good, interesting, challenging, and career enhancing jobs in the military for dedicated women. We should utilize their skill, motivation and expertise in these jobs. In WWII, women were invaluable in their jobs as WACS, WAVES, WASPS, NURSES, and, yes, Rosie the Riveter. They did men’s non-combat jobs and let the men do the combat. These same opportunities and much more are available in the five branches of the military today to qualified and motivated women. To remain the best military in the world, this is the way it must be. Otherwise, the military will not be the best, sexual assaults will continue to increase, esprit d’corps will continue to decline, and women will continue to be unnecessarily hurt, professionally, emotionally, and physically. The military leaders need to step forward and put into action what they know in their heart-of-hearts is best for the United States of America – to keep women out of combat units and off of combat ships. And they need to do it NOW. October 2015 Terry M. Badger Captain, USNR (retired) Captain Badger graduated from
Stanford University in 1957 and was commissioned from their NROTC program. He has been married to Stanford classmate Lynn Lercara Badger for 58 years. They have two grown children, Cara and Craig and three grandsons. After receiving his “wings of gold” in October 1958, Badger was assigned to Helicopter Antisubmarine Squadron 6 at Imperial Beach, where he flew the Navy’s new Sikorsky HSS-1 and -1N helicopters for 4 years. He made two deployments to the western Pacific aboard the aircraft carrier Kearsarge (CVS-33) and in 1959 participated in rescuing over 5,000 Japanese from the wreckage of typhoon-devastated Nagoya, and, on the way home from WESTPAC in 1960, also participated in the rescue of 4 Russian seamen in their disabled landing craft that had been adrift in the northwestern Pacific Ocean for 49 days. Both rescues made Life magazine.
In the reserves, he flew SH-34J and SH-3 Sikorsky helicoptersfor eleven years in various squadrons, and in 1971 was appointed commanding officer of RTU-84, the training squadron loaded with experienced reserve pilots returning from Vietnam. In 1973, after being relieved as CO, he joined the Naval Air Systems Command where his engineering background was useful in the Navy’s development of air-to-air missiles at the Naval Weapons Center, China Lake, California. After 30 years of service to his country, Captain Badger retired in 1986. During his 25 years in the reserves, his civilian job was as a manufacturer’s representative in Los Angeles, where he sold sophisticated electromechanical and electro-hydraulic servo-control components to the major prime and sub-contractors in the California and Arizona aerospace industry. His most rewarding program was the Lockheed “Skunk Work’s” SR-71 aircraft. The SR-71, though now retired, remains the world’s fastest (mach 3+) and highest flying (90,000 feet +) jet powered aircraft ever produced.

‘Journey West’ Cont. from Page 14
These were the two prisoners that were in question when we rode up. They had bound them with trap-chains, and were in the act of throwing them into a tremendous log fire that was burning in the camp. They opened the logs on the top of the fire, and, swinging the two victims into the flames, rolled back the burning logs. There was a terrible struggle for a moment; then all was still. A blue flame towered high above the pile, and quickly subsided. My Indians begged the privilege of scalping them before they were burned; but Gardner told them he wished to burn them up clean. "You are going after their companions," he said, "and you can get plenty more scalps." "Yes," they replied, "we will get plenty, and bring your horses back besides."
I really felt proud of my warriors in seeing them animated with so true a spirit. We breathed our horses for a few minutes, for they were in a perfect foam, and then started after them again in hot pursuit.
By next morning, we came within two gunshots' distance of the enemy without being perceived, as a roll in the prairie hid us from their view. We rested for a few moments, to refresh our horses and prepare them for the charge. We heard a continual firing, as if kept up by the enemy, and then a terrific explosion, which made the earth tremble; yells of the savages succeeded to this, and I then learned that there had been a battle between the Indians and traders, and that the whole stock of the traders' powder had exploded.
Now, thought I, is the time to charge; and I gave the word to my impatient warriors. We were among them like a thunder-bolt, even before they had time to mount their horses; for they had not yet recovered from the fright of the explosion. We cut down one hundred and seventy-two of them before they had time to fire twenty shots. The whole force of the enemy amounted to four hundred men, and those who remained unhurt scattered in all directions. We did not pursue them, as our horses were so badly jaded. Pine Leaf, who charged gallantly by my side, was wounded with a bullet, which broke her left arm just below the elbow. Placing her wounded arm in her bosom, she grew more desperate than ever, and three of the enemy met their death from the point of her lance after she received her wound. Becoming faint from loss of blood, she was constrained to retire. The heroine's arm was set in good style by Dr. Walton, at Gardner's camp, and in a few weeks it was sound again. The Indians have no bone-setters; when their bones get broken, they tie them up as well as possible, and trust in Providence for the result. We had twelve others wounded. We recovered all our own horses, and recaptured those belonging to Gardner, besides a great number
in the possession of the enemy. For spoils we gathered near two hundred scalps, and a vast amount of firearms and other equipments. After this signal victory we returned to Gardner's camp, reaching there the same evening.
Before leaving, however, we took three blackened and disfigured bodies, the remains of the trappers who had so heroically defended themselves, and who, to all appearance, had blown themselves up rather than fall into the hands of the enemy. This supposition was warranted by the appearance of the ground. Evidently the savages had set fire to the grass all round, thinking to burn them out; but it had not reached them. I surmised that the Indians had charged on them in a body, and, when near to the trappers, had been scattered with the ignition of three kegs of powder in the possession of the trappers, for some of the carcasses of the Indians were badly scorched.
Our reception at the camp of Gardner was enthusiastic. "Beckwourth and his brave warriors forever!" rent the air in acclamations. They joined us, and went on to the fort with us. When we came in sight of the place we formed all in line, and displayed our scalps on the ends of sticks, and discharged our guns, and sung at the top of our voices. This brought every person out of the fort to look at us. We then opened our column, and I requested Gardner to drive all the horses with full speed to the fort. Just before he reached there we spurred our horses on to the front, and encircled the fort several times, still displaying our scalps, and singing the scalp-dance burden louder and louder, while all the occupants of the post joined in. There were hilarious times round the fort that night. We had sent word to the village to summon the Crows to the tradingpost, to help us mourn for the three white men who had recently been killed on the ice, and who were yet unburied. I omitted to mention in proper place that Glass's body was found near the fort — probably on his retreat after he had discovered the Indians. The whole village, accordingly, started to join us, while I and my party went out to meet them and acquaint them with our success. In consideration of my distinguished services, I was elevated to second counselor of the nation.
We met them about a day's ride from the fort, and had a great celebration over the communication of our victory. We returned together and buried the three men, amid the most terrible scenes that I had ever witnessed. The crying was truly appalling. The three men were well known, and highly esteemed by the Crows. When their bodies were lowered to their last resting-place, numberless fingers were voluntarily chopped off and thrown into the graves; hair and trinkets of every description were also contributed, and the graves were finally filled up.
I then set the men to work in building boats, to carry our peltry down to Fort Union, at the mouth
of the Yellow Stone, whither I intended going as soon as the river was free from ice. When completed, I put on board seven hundred packs of buffalo robes — ten robes in each pack — and forty-five packs of beaver. I forwarded orders for such goods as were wanted, and also word for another clerk in the place of poor Rose, who had lost his life in the service of the company.
Editor’s Note: In the next series of journal entries you’ll learn how the adventures turned out with James Beckwourth and his Crow Indian brethren.
Some of the future episodes include Disagreeable Rencounters in St. Louis.—Messenger arrives from Fort Cass.— Imminent Peril of the Whites from the Infuriated Crows.—The Cause.— Immediate Return.— Incidents of my Arrival.— Pine Leaf substituted for Eliza.—Last Battle with the Black Feet.—Final Adieu to the Crows.
We try to feature Journal Entries of Mr. Beckwourth about once a month. We, as your editor, find this account as fascinating as so many of you do and cannot wait for the next series of journal entries to appear. He was quite an explorer, quite an adventurer. Stay tuned! We’ll have more adventures soon!
‘Local News’ Cont. from Page 13
The City Council released the following statement about its decision:
“We have thoroughly reviewed this plan, including extensive technical and environmental studies, and continue to believe the benefits are far greater than any other commercial development that would eventually be built on this land. We also respect the referendum process and support Carlsbad voters having an opportunity to make a final decision at the first available opportunity.”
The plan, dubbed “85/15” because of the split between the land that would be preserved as open space and the land that would be developed, was submitted to the City Council Aug. 25 through a citizen-led initiative. The City Council approved the plan, citing benefits that would not likely be offered by another developer, including lagoon water quality improvements, creation of an extensive trails and open space preserve, investments in new traffic technology and permanently safeguarding the locally run strawberry farm. In the days following the Aug. 25 City Council approval, a
group called Citizens for North County launched a successful referendum effort to overturn the City Council’s decision. The referendum left the City Council with three choices, to repeal the ordinance approving the plan, call a special election or let voters decide at the next general election, Nov. 8, 2016. The Agua Hedionda South Shore Specific Plan initiative was proposed on May 12, when Carlsbad residents Bill Dominguez, Carlton Lund and Maureen Simons submitted to the City of Carlsbad a notice of intent to circulate a petition for a citizen-led initiative. Caruso Affiliated is the primary sponsor of the initiative, which is a comprehensive plan for future land uses on a 203.4 acre property located east of I-5, between the south shore of the Agua Hedionda Lagoon and Cannon Road. The plan would conserve approximately 176.7 acres for open space, continuing and supporting strawberry farming and coastal agricultural, preserving natural habitat, and providing for publicly accessible trails and open space, while allowing for development of up to 585,000 square feet of new visitor-serving commercial, shopping, dining, entertainment, and recreational uses on the 26.7 acres designated for retail development.
About 48 acres of the land included in the plan are already designated for retail uses. The plan proposes developing about half of what is allowed.
According to the County of San Diego Registrar of Voters, the cost for a special election would be between $450,000 and $550,000. The city will pay these costs from its general fund, which currently has in excess of $80 million in reserves, or, money that the city has set aside for one time, unplanned expenses.
As part of its decision Tuesday, the City Council authorized its members to submit an argument in support of the ordinance, to appear on the ballot. Referendum proponents may submit an argument against the ordinance. The Council also authorized the city attorney to prepare a 500 word impartial analysis of the ordinance, which would also appear on the ballot. The ordinance needs a simply majority to pass, which is 50 percent of the vote, plus one. If the ordinance passes, the plan will proceed. If it fails, the ordinance will be repealed.
