Ah, if only we could go back to yesteryear and relive the colorful, exciting and glamorous years of the old west! Life was simpler then.
Good guys wore white hats. Bad guys wore black hats.
Good guys were slim, trim, finely muscled. Bad guys had unkempt mustaches or beards, ugly. loose fitting flannel shirts, and rode ugly horses. "When you call me that, smile," the hero said to the bad man in that first of thousands of cowboy novels, Owen Wister's "The Virginian." Even before that book's publication in 1902, the cowboy had become a part of the American psyche. This iconic figure of the old west -- tall in the saddle, alone, facing danger, one man against nature's vast, treeless plains and humanity's outlaws—that appealed to people and made the cowboy a folk hero, a halfreal, half-mythological symbol of the American West. A lone rugged figure swaggers into a saloon, a sneer on his weathered face. This image has thrilled families for generations. From his ten gallon hat to his low-slung gun belt and shiny spurs, the larger-thanlife cowboy owns his status in books and on movie screens as a legend of the American West. However, as with any legend, myth has mixed in with his real and fascinating history. Let's rustle up the truth behind the myth.
Western Novels featuring legendary heroes have been popular for a long time. The precursor to the western paperback was the Dime Novel developed in America during the 1800s. In these stories, the hero was the man of action who rescued innocent maidens in distress and righted wrongs like the knights in the Age of Chivalry. Honor was the most important attribute a man could have.

paper or magazine, some reaching 400,000 copies sold per issue. Many were Wild West adventures. In America, many of the heroes in Dime Novels were based on real men of the West. James Butler Hickok aka Wild Bill Hickock was featured in a
series of Dime Novels. In real life, he started out as a scout for the Union Army. He later gained a reputation as a marksman from his encounters with outlaws while serving as a frontier marshal at Fort Riley, Hays City, and Abilene, Kansas. He became a legend, especially after he was mur-

being featured in a Dime Novel. Like Bill Hickock, he served in real life as a scout for the Army and as a guide for Fremont when he explored and mapped California and Oregon. Carson’s true life adventures made the Dime Novels sound a little tame in comparison. For example, Kit Carson was hired as a guide in 1849 to track down some Apaches who had attacked a wagon train, killed the men and took a woman and child hostage. He devoted 5 pages in his autobiography to relate how he and two other guides led the search party made up of a detachment of army soldiers. He tracked the Apaches for 12 days over the most difficult trail he had ever followed. The Apaches kept splitting up in groups of two or three, then coming together again at some prearranged spot to camp at night. Kit Carson was in the lead when they finally caught up to them. His instinct was to use the element of surprise and rush in quickly, but he was overruled by the others in his party who thought the Apaches should be given the chance to parley. But that turned out to be a big mistake. With the extra time they were given, the Indians fled in all directions. When Kit Carson finally locat-

ed the white woman, he was heart-broken to find that she had been shot while trying to make a run for it. The irony of the story is that among her belongings was a Dime Novel entitled, "Kit Carson, the Happy Warrior." In his autobiography, Carson wrote, "We found a book in the camp, the first of the kind I had ever seen, in which I was represented as a great hero, slaying Indians by the hundred. I have often thought that Mrs. White must have read it, and knowing that I lived nearby, must have prayed for my appearance in order that she might be saved. I did come, but I lacked the power to persuade those that were in command over me to follow my plan for her rescue. They would not listen to me and they failed. I will say no more regarding this matter, nor attach any blame to any particular person, for I presume the consciences of those who were the cause of the tragedy have severely punished them ere this." The Dime Novels helped build and perpetuate the image of the glamorous wild, wild west. In the early to mid-1900s, bestselling westerns were written by such authors as Zane Grey, Max Brand, William McLeod Raine, Louis L'Amour and others. Their heroes were men of action, following a strong code of honor. Books by Zane Grey

and Louis L'Amour never go out of print, and they have what amounts to a cult following. These writers helped set the standards for what a legendary western hero is.
However, there are a few myths about this “glamorous era” we should clear up: Myth 1: Cowboys fought Indians
Hollywood has imprinted the image of constantly warring cowboys and Indians on the American psyche. But in the real West, battles between cowboys and American Indians were rare.
"There were conflicts, but this was during a very short time period," says James Nottage, vice president and chief curatorial officer of the Eiteljorg Museum of American Indian and Western Art.
Before the ranch times we visualize as classic to the Old West, most American Indians had already been sent to reservations, leaving little room for feuds with cowboys.
"Cowboys didn't even carry guns a lot because they were heavy. They rarely used guns, mostly to kill predator animals. That would suggest that there wasn't much danger from Indians," Nottage says.
In fact, a number of American Indians were cowboys themselves.
Mexican cowboys, known as vaqueros (Spanish for "cow men"), developed many cowhandling methods and tools including livestock branding practices, the lariat ("la riata," the rope), and herding with horses rather than on foot. Myth 2: The cowboy is a figure of the past. Modern life has no place for Old West traditions.
Although barbed-wire fences have put an end to the open range and new technologies have emerged, modern ranching still holds onto traditions of the Old West. Families still grow up taking care of herds in traditional ranch settings.
"A lot of kids still grow up in these settings. They still do branding and other traditional cowhand activities in much the same way," Nottage says.
A 2003 U.S. Bureau of Labor survey revealed that about 1000 people in the United States are employed as "support for animal production." These workers of ranches, stockyards, and rodeo performances implement modern technology of complex veterinary

Ole looked at them and said, "Dat's the best news I hear in a long time. I yoost told Lena dis mornin dat I don't tink I can take anodder vinter in Minniesoda!" ••••• Lena looked out of the window and saw Ole.
The young family's 4-year-old daughter naturally took an interest in all the activity going on next door and spent much of each day observing the workers.
The surveyors stated, "Well, after our work here, we discovered your farm is not in Minnesota but is actually in Wisconsin!"
He was outside walking back and forth in the front yard pushing his lawn mower in the nude. Lena raised yelled, "OLE."
He replies, "Ya Lena, what you vant?"
“You better get in da house and put your clothes on, people vill tink I married you for your money." ••••• A 4-Year Old's first Paycheck
Here's a truly heartwarming story about the bond formed between a little 4-year-old girl and some construction workers that will make you believe that we all can make a difference when we give a child the gift of
A young family moved into a house, next to a vacant lot. One day, a construction crew turned up to start building a house on the empty lot.
Eventually the construction crew, all of them "gems-in-therough," more or less, adopted her as a kind of project mascot. They chatted with her, let her sit with them while they had coffee and lunch breaks, and gave her 20 little jobs to do here and there to make her feel important. At the end of the first week, they even presented her with a pay envelope containing ten dollars.
The little girl took this home to her mother who suggested that she take her ten dollars "pay" she'd received to the bank the next day to start a savings account. When the girl and her mom got to the bank, the teller was equally impressed and asked

sciences, pickup trucks, and four-wheeler travel. The workers retain their Old West traditions including horseback riding in areas modern vehicles cannot access. They rope steer with lariats, and still prefer their iconic Western clothing: wide-brimmed hats protect from the sun, sturdy jeans and leather chaps shield the legs from heavy brush, and cowboy boots protect lower legs and keep feet from slipping out of stirrups. Traditions of the Old West are definitely alive and well.
Cattle-raising societies existed long before the Great Plains had been cleared of buffalo. It was in Florida that much of the protocol involving branding evolved. Yet the cattle industry of the Southeast never attracted national attention. The herders never became heroes. They remained little known and were recognized for what they were—illiterate, unmounted trespassers on the public domain, drifting from grazing ground to grazing ground, trailing their beasts to markets at Ohio River towns or to Savannah or Jacksonville. The cowboy life was glamorous. Myth: It was very difficult working 18-hour days and the long trail rides were sometimes boring.
Most cowboys had small or medium physical frames. Truth: Large men were too heavy to ride mustangs.
A cowboy would ride his favorite horse all day. Myth: Cowboys would ride a string of horses depending on what task was at hand. For example, a mild horse would be used at night and a quick horse would be used for cattle roping and tending. Many Texas cowboys were Mexican or African-American. Truth: During the Cowboy Era (1866-1886) one sixth of the cowboys were Mexican, and many others were AfricanAmerican or Native American.
Most Texas cowboys were older, experienced wranglers. Myth: Most cowboys were young men who learned on the job. "They were, on average, pretty young," Nottage says. "Families were pretty large, so kids started working at younger ages. Cowboys were in their late teens or early 20s. Some were 15 or 16 years old." Women could not be cowboys. Myth: Several women owned ranches and ran their own cattle drives, including Amanda Burks and Lizzie Johnson.
The word “cowboy” was invented in Texas. Myth: Actually, the job of a “cowboy” came from the Mexican and Spanish “vaquero.” Many cowboy words and practices come from the Spanish language and Mexican culture. Here are a few examples of Spanish and English words related to ranching: Vaca = Cow Ranchero = Rancher Corro = Corral Mesteños = Mustangs Cocinero = Cook
The cowboy of myth and reality had his beginnings in Texas. There cattle grew wild with few natural enemies; by the end of the Civil War there were an estimated 5 million of them. It was then that the cowboy entered his twenty-year golden age, 1866-1886, the era of the open range and the great cattle drives. The incentive was the high price of beef up North, where Union armies had exhausted the supply and the urbanizing East provided a ready market. One could make millions in the cattle industry. A steer worth five dollars in Texas was worth sixty dollars in the North. The economics did not escape the Texans. Beginning in 1866 they began moving long lines of longhorns northward, with the primary destination being the railhead at Sedalia, Missouri. Indians and farmers who resented cattle trampling their crops and spreading the dreaded Texas fever protested their passage. Outlaws stole the cattle and were not averse to killing the men driving them.
Texans searched for a route with better grass and fewer Indians, farmers, and desperadoes. When railroads inched across the plains, new trails, among them the Chisholm, Western, and Loving, veered westward to intercept them. Cattle towns such as Abilene, Wichita, Ellsworth, Caldwell, and Dodge City enjoyed a brief heyday of prosperity and violence. Later trails headed on north to Ogallala, Cheyenne, Glendive, and Miles City. By 1886 the open-range cattle business had spread throughout the Great Plains and had merged with earlier cattle enterprises in Colorado, Idaho, Washington, Utah, Nevada, Arizona, and California.
The men who worked the cattle in the treeless expanses of the West, at least one-fourth of them blacks, became known as cowboys. The image of the courageous, spirited horseman living a dangerous life carried with it an appeal that refuses to disappear. Driving a thousand to two thousand cattle
hundreds of miles to market; facing lightning and cloudbursts and drought, stampedes, rattlesnakes, and outlaws; sleeping under the stars and catching chow at the chuckwagon—the cowboys dominated the American galaxy of folk heroes.
Even their dress inspired envy. The cowboys' hats were highcrowned with wide, floppy rims, practical for protection from the sun's glare, useful as a cup with which to scoop up water or, folded over, as a pillow. The bandana handkerchief tied around the neck could be lifted to cover mouth and nostrils from dust. Originally the collarless shirt and trousers were nondescript, of flannel or wool. A vest was often worn; it gave some protection from cold winds and also had a number of useful pockets, one of which held Bull Durham tobacco and cigarette papers. The boots with heels two inches high, the better to rest in the stirrups or dig into the ground while roping a calf, may have appeared exotic to a dude, but they were absolutely practical. The stock saddle's design traced all the way back to the Moors of North Africa, having come to the American cowboy by way of the Spanish and Mexicans. Chaparejos, or chaps, served a valuable purpose when a cowboy had to chase after a steer into a patch of thorny mesquite. A bridle, a lariat, and, during the cattle drives, probably a well-balanced six-shooter completed the cowboys' outfit. Ranchers staked out homesteads often centered in a cottonwood grove, with ample water nearby; they grazed their cattle over thousands of acres of public domain. Barbed wire, a web of railroads throughout the Great Plains, and enforcement of federal land laws all put an end to the open-range cattle industry and the great trails. By the mid1880s prudent cattlemen realized that the industry was overexpanded, the Great Plains overgrazed, and the price of beef declining. The dry summer of 1886 followed by the terrible winter of 1886-1887 destroyed what remained of the original industry. The open range was ended.
Blooded cattle were brought in to improve the stock. The cowboy who hated to work unmounted was often reduced to riding a haymow, mending fences, and applying medicines to sick cattle. Where once he had herded cattle up the trails to Abilene or Dodge, he now ran the line—the water divide between his ranch and his neighbor's. There was still the

Good thinker, good writer, lots of ideas. (I’ve already suggested she consider being a candidate for City Council. She declined. Wants to spend time with her hubby.)
Most recently she posted the idea of developing a Public Market in downtown Escondido that would be a seven day a week feature. She had in mind the empty store at 246-248 E. Grand. It’s overpriced at $1.2 million but has the potential. Possibly a public/private venture? I became rather excited about the idea after reading about it . . . remembering that Evelyn and I just returned from Vancouver, British Columbia, where they have a Public Market that is a classy upscale facility with permanent vendors, cafe/restaurant, two or three floors, and is a “must-see-andshop” when in Vancouver. Also, the Public Market in Seattle is legendary and fun to visit. All with permanent vendors.
I think Ms. Mues has hit upon a great idea to help make downtown Escondido a really major destination in San Diego County. The Public Market (perhaps with a rooftop restaurant and concert venue), the Center for the Arts . . . a larger and more diverse assemblage of great restaurants on Grand Avenue. This is an idea the Escondido City Council could really sink its teeth into and generate a great opportunity!

The Escondido City Council has approved a contract giving the Escondido police officers a cumulative pay raise of 10 per cent over the next three years. These raises are over and above the automatic pay raises officers receive bsed on years of service.
Mike Garcia, president of the labor union representing the city’s roughly 160 officers said this brings the Escondido officers to about a median level compared to the rest of the county.
There has been a noticeable talent drain with officers leaving for other agencies; this pay raise contract may help stem that shrinkage, said Garcia, not only for retention but in recruiting. The three-year contract gives officers a 2.5 percent raise in January, another 2.5 percent raise next July, a 2 percent raise in January 2015, a 2 percent raise in January 2016 and a 1 percent raise just as the contract ends in December 2016. The starting pay for an Escondido police officer will increase from $54,564 to $65,652 by the end of the contract.

semiannual roundup when cowboys representing several ranches rendezvoused and rode great circles, rounding up all the cattle they could find. They were then herded to a central place where cowboys from each ranch cut out its beasts and drove them back to the home range. In 1867, Joseph McCoy tracked a path known as the Chisholm Trail from Texas to Abilene, Kansas. The Texas cowboys drove the cattle the entire distance — 1500 miles. Along the way, the cattle enjoyed all the grass they wanted, at no cost to the ranchers. At Abilene and other railhead towns such as Dodge City and Ellsworth, the cattle would be sold and the cowboys would return to Texas.
Glorified in thousands of novels and hundreds of motion pictures, the American cowboy is so mythologized that the reality and the legend are almost inseparable. Yet the reality is that the cowboy still exists because his work is essential to the industry. In many areas of the American West he still rides a horse, though he may carry it in a horse trailer behind his pickup truck to the point where the road gives out and a horse becomes indispen-

But he still dresses like a cowboy because the garb is practical; he understands cattle and horses and gazes out upon the treeless expanse just as his predecessors did. His work and his workplace, in spite of encroaching population, are still there. No vision of the American West is complete without the cowboy. The imagery is quintessentially American, but many myths cloud the truth about what life was like on the long drive. Myth vs. Reality
Contrary to legend, the typical cowboy was not a skilled marksman. The lariat, not the gun, was how the cattle drover showed his mastery.
The lone cowboy is an American myth. Cattle were always driven by a group of drovers. The cattle were branded so the owner could distinguish his steer from the rest. Several times per drive, cowboys conducted a roundup where the cattle would be sort-

Give a Gift and Grant a Wish - Cox employees are campaigning for Donated Airline Miles for the “Make A Wish” program. Last year, more than 70% of children’s wishes involved travel. To make sure that wishes for kids are fulfilled, Make-AWish San Diego will need 10 million air miles to provide travel for more than 200 kids and their immediate family members. Cox employees kicked off the campaign through the Wishes in Flight program. Donate your airline miles and make wishes come true for local children. Participating airlines include Delta, US Airways and United. What’s great about this program is that once miles are donated, they never expire. You hold the ticket to a child’s wish and help kids reach their wish destinations around the world. This is a simple way to help grant a life-changing wish experience. Contact Cox Communications or the “Make-AWish” San Diego organization.

ified citizens, and there is heavy representation of Latinos and Latino activists. The obvious, though unstated, objective of the committee was to create one or more Latino districts that would spawn successful Latino candidates for city council and/or Mayor.
The committee has just submitted their 1st draft of the new districts to the city. A copy of that map is now available at the city’s website. There will be a series of public meetings to comment on the new boundaries. However, I am concerned that most residents will simply ignore those and be uninformed of their own district’s geography or demographics. Additionally, who knows how much attention the U.T. will devote to this? Would you mind taking a look at the initial proposed map on the city site? Maybe look it over and see if, in your opinion, it makes sense to anyone other than the Latino community? Perhaps publish a large enough map that folks can see what it means to them personally?
I understand that, with the help of the ACLU, Latinos want to improve their chances

Historically Speaking by Tom Morrow
My little niece said "I'm just waiting to see how you drink like a fish." ••••• I had a dear old grandmother who was a farm gal. Seldom, if ever, would she see a doctor. Farm folks tend to be hardy folk . . . and pretty much look after themselves.
Finally, the family, noting grandma’s advancing years, suggested she break down and go see the doctor. She reluctantly agreed.
At the doctor’s office, after the doctor had gathered the vitals and took down her history, he said, “Okay, Mrs. Davis, now if you would please undress. Grandma giggled and said, “Oh, doctor . . . you first! •••••
The little boy's parents told him he couldn't go to the picnic because he had been naughty. After a while, they forgave him and told him he could go. He began to cry. They asked him what was wrong and he told them, "It's too late…. I already prayed for rain!"
The Mysterious Nazca Lines of Peru
Those giant figures and designs on the South American desert plains located in the southern coastal region of Peru have fascinated since they were first discovered by pilots flying over them in the 1920s. Visible only from the air, these giant figures consist of a great deal of designs and shapes carved deeply in the ground. Some are in the shape of flowers, trees, birds, and other animals. There's one peculiar figure of a human, referred to as "The Owl Man" because of its giant wide-open eyes. These lines have caused scholars to speculate what they represent and who carved them.

The fact that none of these characters can be seen from the ground and only the air has left many to believe earth had extra-terrestrial visitors hundreds of years ago. How could they be constructed without a heavenly view?
Other archeologists justify the drawings existence in many other ways. These great figures were drawn between 200 B.C. and 600 A.D. They may have served many functions largely associated with rituals, planting, and the extraction of water from a harsh desert environment. Study of the Nazca people shows them to have been skilled in irrigation, constructing a network of canals that linked the Nazca River with underground waters flowing from the nearby Andes Mountains. Still, how connected these geometric and animal designs are to agriculture or some subterranean water supplies remains unknown. The "extra-terrestrial visitor" theory has dominated people from all around the world for almost a century.

Work was very difficult. The workdays lasted fifteen hours, much of which was spent in the saddle. Occasionally, shots were fired by hostile Indians or farmers. Cattle rustlers sometimes stole their steers.

One of the greatest fears was the stampede, which could result in lost or dead cattle or cowboys. One method of containing a stampede was to get the cattle to run in a circle, where the steer would eventually tire.
Upon reaching Abilene, the cattle were sold. Then it was time to let loose. Abilene had twenty-five saloons open all hours to service incoming riders of the long drive. Twilight of the Cowboy
The heyday of the long drive was short. By the early 1870s, rail lines reached Texas so the cattle could be shipped directly to the slaughterhouses. Ranchers then began to allow cattle to graze on the open range near rail heads. But even this did not last. The invention of barbed wire by Joseph Glidden ruined the open range. Now farmers could cheaply mark their territory to keep the unwanted steers off their lands. Overproduction caused prices to fall, leading many ranchers out of business. Finally, the winter of 1886-87 was one of the worst in American history. Cattle died by the thousands as temperatures reached fifty below zero in some parts of the West. The era of the open range was over. Sources: www.westernauthors.com/Part _IV.htm www.blantonmuseum.org/elea rning/aac/teacher/cowboy/gam e.html

However, I also read that only about 25% of the Latino population hold US citizenship and are eligible to vote assuming they bother to register.

Editor’s Note: Much of this was addressed in our lead local story for the 11/07/13 issue and was also in The Social Butterfly colum in the 10/17/13 issue.

I was out on a project for a short time with only my cell phone and didn't see the email to call you.
The photo of Alan (Skuba) in the press box looks like he is either a high stakes poker player or a member of the mob !
You did a FANTASTIC job on the story and would bet you a steak dinner that you'll have a lot of readers writing in with their memory of the station. This is the first time I caused a small commotion and then was glad I did! Seeing my name at the end was icing on the cake thanks! I would love to add the paper edition to my KOWN binder.

As a parent of a great stepdaughter, I am so grateful to Coach Snyder for his hard work and leadership to get the Charter schools established. She attended Escondido Charter school when it was still in the office buildings across the street and was on the committee that chose White Tigers as the school mascot. She went on to attend UCSD on a scholarship and graduated and is now a new Mom and a proud and respected employee of a local Escondido firm. She might have been able to accomplish this from the government
schools, but she would not have had the great environment of moral leadership and diligence she got from her nonunion teachers. I wondered about the sour grapes from Mr. Thomas S Cowan Jr. and found out that not only has he not contributed much to the community, unlike Coach Snyder, he is an uber left wing idealogue who doesn't seem to have much grip on reality.

HI: Just wanted to congratulate you on the great article on KOWN; I am Dwight Alexander, who worked full and part time there from 69 to 72, and really enjoyed it. I did news, helped Phil Boles as we did traffic in the afternoon and often stayed with him 6 to midnight, and sometimes to a bar downtown til it closed at 2; only to be up and again at work at 6 to sign on with a morning guy.
My most fun promotion was “the Great Honda Hunt” where a key was hidden and clues given and the many people going thru weeds near the station at the end to find that magic key! I remember running into you at Kaiser one day. I am semiretired; still own rentals as I have for 40 years here and also have profitable interests in oil wells in the Bakken that I inherited! Amazingly I live in the Custom Home that the now famous Chick Embry built on the edge of town and later sold because his wife did not drive! He has lived right across the street from the high school ever since.
Great Job on the Article; I was out of town and missed that paper, and have not found one, but read it onliine! Keep up the good work. Dwight Alexander Escondido, CA.

Nome and Paul Van Middlesworth The Computer Factory www.computerfactorysanmarcos.com What Good are Veterans Anyway?
This week we celebrated Veteran’s Day. Everyone knows the story. On the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month in 1918, Germany accepted the terms of the armistice that ended WWI. The day was commemorated as Armistice Day to honor WWI’s fallen veterans until Congress amended the law in 1954 changing Armistice Day to Veterans Day, a day to honor all Veterans.
It is important to remember that it is all of Veterans we honor and not just those maimed or killed. In the past one hundred years, fewer than 2% of the veterans who served in America’s Armed Forces were killed or wounded in combat. While it is certainly fitting that we honor those wounded or killed, we owe no less a debt of gratitude to
Thank You to Our Veterans
This week, communities across our nation honored military service members who have sacrificed greatly to protect our freedoms. We reserve Veterans Day to show gratitude and appreciation for those who are retired from, or currently serving in, one of our nation’s military branches.
As our community is called home by many of California’s service men and women, I am humbled to have had the opportunity to meet and recognize some of these courageous individuals. During my time in the legislature, I have been a strong advocate for increasing aid and opportunities for veterans in our state. This year, we passed many
those who served and lived to come home.
The WWII generation has been called “America’s Greatest Generation.” Thank God that 98% of those men and women came home after the war to build the “golden age” of America. Today only 15% of those veterans survive. We owe them our deepest gratitude and respect. When we think of honoring Veterans we tend to think of combat Veterans but we owe as much to the men and women who serve America in support of logistics as well as combat and in peacetime. It is their strength, competence, courage, and vigilance that preserve our freedom and security in peace and in war. In America, compulsory military service for men (the draft) continued for nearly a generation after the end of WWII. The post war draft ended in 1973. It is hard to deny that the draft had a tremendous and largely beneficial effect on American society. It can be argued that America would be a stronger and better nation had we kept some form of compulsory service even to this day.
(Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force or Coast Guard). For an eighteen year-old fresh out of high school, a hitch in the service was a “rite of passage,” an introduction to manhood. Learning discipline, respect, financial responsibility, and the other skills learned in an environment bound by rules and tradition was hugely valuable experience. Judges often waived prison sentences for young offenders on the condition that they enter the military service and become “men.” Employers preferred veterans for good reason. An “honorable discharge” from military service was a recognized accomplishment and universally accepted endorsement of character.
Few realize the importance of America’s “draft” to the Civil Rights Movement of the 60s and 70s. Racial barriers in America’s military services were swept away when President Truman integrated the US military in 1948. During
those years there were no organizations in America as color blind as the five armed services. Imagine the impact on an 18 year-old conscript from Alabama who had never seen a “Negro” in a position of authority, an Iowa farm boy who had never seen a “Mexican” speak English or a ghetto teen learning that his worth came from within and was not bounded by the color of his skin. Racial biases melted away in the military environment where race simply wasn’t important. The experiences of the generation who served in our integrated armed services did more to prick the conscience of America than all the marches, sit-ins and speeches. It has been 44 years since I last wore my uniform, but I’ll always feel a strong kinship with veterans of any age or service. Whether a fresh young face in Navy white or a grizzled WW II Veteran in a VFW piss cutter. In war or peace, Veterans share a bond born of our common experience and service. God bless you my brothers.
While a small percentage of young men “dodged” the draft, the great majority of America’s young men, rich or poor and of every race, religion and background served. The standard enlistment was two years
policies to support veterans in California. We successfully established laws that will improve veterans’ access to education, increase opportunities for employment after military discharge, and build new affordable housing for low-income veterans– a housing project that I have worked on for many years. Veterans’ sacrifices can never truly be repaid, and they deserve much more than any legislation passed to support them. They deserve daily thanks for their choice to be brave so that we may be free.

Report Card Time
California now has the highest sales tax, the highest gasoline tax, and the highest marginal income tax rates in the United States. These high rates of taxation are contributing factors to California’s ongoing ranking in the bottom tier of business-friendly states. The people of California have long understood the negative impact of excessive taxation. In 1978, California voters overwhelmingly enacted Proposition 13, which eliminates yearly increases in property taxes based on re-assessed property value.
Recently, the Howard Jarvis Taxpayer’s Associated released its 2013 Legislative Report Card, which monitors votes on legislation impacting taxation as well as attempts to undermine Proposition 13 protections for California’s taxpayers. I am happy to report that I received an “A” rating for my
first year Assembly.
During the upcoming legislative session which begins in early January, I look forward to continuing to fight for California’s overburdened tax payers. A number of bills that would undermine Proposition 13 protections were introduced earlier this year and are likely to be taken up again after the Legislature reconvenes. These bills include a number of constitutional amendments, such as ACA 8, which would lower the threshold to approve infrastructure bonds from two-thirds, currently required under Prop.13, to 55%.
ACA 8 and similar constitutional amendments would ultimately require voter approval should they pass the Legislature. I will do everything within my power as your representative to derail this serious threat to California’s future prosperity.

That’s the real story behind the first Christmas. It was completely unexpected! Add to that a mystical star, three “wise men from the east,” and having a dream that you should skedaddle down to Egypt to rescue your son from government-sanctioned murder. No one would have predicted this! Someone ought to tell the story the way it really was.

That’s what New Song Community Church intends to do.
Pastor Hal Seed New Song Community Church, Oceanside,
The story of Christmas is probably so familiar to you, you could recite it in your sleep. Yet to Mary, Joseph, and the other eyewitnesses, Christmas was completely unexpected, disarming, even disturbing.
Imagine riding a donkey 80 miles during the last stages of pregnancy. Imagine huddling in a cave to deliver your firstborn. Imagine grubby, lower-class night-workers showing up to view your baby before you’ve even had the chance to tell your mom he was born?
This December, New Song will showcase The Unexpected Story with impressive videos, touching songs, and great story-telling. The production will travel to each of New Song’s locations throughout the month:
On December 7 and 8, it will play at New Song Mission Avenue (3985 Mission, Oceanside). On December 15, you can experience it at New Song Seaside (401 Mission Avenue – meets at the Regal Theater). On December 22, you’’ find it at New Song Inland Hills (31505 Old River Rd, Bonsall.) Check www.newsongchurch.com for show times. The Unexpected Story is an experience for the whole family. Why not start a new tradition and join us for the Christmas Season?
