Volume 44 - No. 48

by Kit Bonner, Naval Historian
From November 1943, until her demise in June 1945, the American destroyer 'William D. Porter' was often hailed whenever she entered port or joined other Naval ships - with the greetings: "Don't shoot, we're Republicans!'
For a half a century, the US Navy kept a lid on the details of the incident that prompted this salutation. A Miami news reporter made the first public disclosure in 1958 after he stumbled upon the truth while covering a reunion of the destroyer's crew. The Pentagon reluctantly and tersely confirmed his story, but only a smattering of newspapers took notice.
In 1943, the Willie D as the Porter was nicknamed, accidentally fired a live torpedo at the battleship Iowa during a practice exercise. As if this weren't bad enough, the Iowa was carrying President Franklin D. Roosevelt at the time, along with Secretary of State, Cordell Hull, and all of the country's W.W.II military brass. They were headed for the Big Three Conference in Tehran, where Roosevelt was to meet Stalin and Churchill.
Had the Porter's torpedo struck the Iowa at the aiming point, the last 60 years of world history might have been quite different. The USS William D Porter (DD-579) was one of hundreds of assembly line destroyers built during the war. They mounted several heavy and light guns, but their main armament consisted of 10 fast-running and accurate The Paper - 760.747.7119

torpedoes that carried 500-pound warheads. This destroyer was placed in commission on July 1943 under the command of Wilfred Walker, a man on the Navy's fast career track.
In the months before she was detailed to accompany the Iowa across the Atlantic in November 1943, the Porter and her crew learned their trade, experiencing the normal problems that always beset a new ship and a

The mishaps grew more serious when she became an escort for the pride of the fleet, the big new battleship Iowa. The night before they left Norfolk, bound for North Africa, the Porter accidentally damaged a nearby sister ship when she backed down along the other ship's side and her anchor tore down the other ship's railings, life rafts, ship's boat and various other for-
merly valuable pieces of equipment. The Willie D merely had a scraped anchor, but her career of mayhem and mishaps had begun.
Just twenty four hours later, the four-ship convoy, consisting of Iowa and her secret passengers, the Willie D, and two other destroyers, was under strict instructions to maintain complete radio silence. Since they were going through a known U-

boat feeding ground, speed and silence were the best defense.
Suddenly, a tremendous explosion rocked the convoy. All of the ships commenced anti-submarine maneuvers. This continued until the Porter sheepishly admitted that one of her depth charges had fallen off her stern and exploded. The 'safety' had not been set as instructed. Captain Walker was watching his fast track career become sidetracked.
Shortly thereafter, a freak wave inundated the ship, stripping away everything that wasn't lashed down. A man washed overboard and was never found. Next, the fire room lost power in one of its boilers. The Captain, at this point, was making reports almost hourly to the Iowa

about the Willie D's difficulties. It would have been merciful if the force commander had detached the hard luck ship and sent her back to Norfolk. But, no, she sailed on.
The morning of 14 November 1943 dawned with a moderate sea and pleasant weather. The Iowa and her escorts were just east of Bermuda, and the president and his guests wanted to see how the big ship could defend herself against an air attack. So, the Iowa launched a number of weather balloons to use as anti-aircraft targets. It was exciting to see more than 100 guns shooting at the balloons, and the President was proud of his Navy. Just as proud was Admiral Ernest J King, the Chief of Naval Operations; large in size and by demeanor, a true monarch of the sea.
Disagreeing with him meant the end of a naval career. Up to this time, no one knew what firing a

torpedo at him would mean. Over on the Willie D, Captain Walker watched the fireworks display with admiration and envy. Thinking about career redemption and breaking the hard luck spell, the Captain sent his impatient crew to battle stations. They began to shoot down the balloons the Iowa had missed as they drifted into the Porter's vicinity.
Down on the torpedo mounts, the crew watched, waiting to take some practice shots of their own on the big battleship, which, even though 6,000 yards away, seemed to blot out the horizon. Lawton Dawson and Tony Fazio were among those responsible for the torpedoes. Part of their job involved ensuring that the primers were installed during actual combat and removed during practice. Once a primer was installed, on a command to fire, it would explode shooting the torpedo out of

A man has six items in his bathroom: toothbrush and toothpaste, shaving cream, razor, a bar of soap, and a towel.
Dawson, on this particular morning, unfortunately had forgotten to remove the primer from torpedo tube #3. Up on the bridge, a new torpedo officer, unaware of the danger, ordered a simulated firing. "Fire 1, Fire 2," and finally, "Fire 3." There was no Fire 4 as the sequence was interrupted by an unmistakable whooooooshhhhing sound made by a successfully launched and armed torpedo. Lt H. Steward Lewis, who witnessed the entire event, later described the next few minutes as what hell would look like if it ever broke loose. Just after he saw the torpedo hit water on its way to the Iowa and some of the most prominent figures in world history, Lewis innocently asked the Captain, 'Did you give permission to fire a torpedo?'

thrown the used primer over the side to conceal his mistake. The whole incident was chalked up to an unfortunate set of circumstances and placed under a cloak of secrecy.
Someone had to be punished. Captain Walker and several other Porter officers and sailors eventually found themselves in obscure shore assignments. Dawson was sentenced to 14 years hard labor. President Roosevelt intervened; however, asking that no punishment be meted out for what was clearly an accident.
Above, the USS Iowa, unleashes a broadside while at sea
Initially there was some reluctance to admit what had happened, or even to warn the Iowa. As the awful reality sunk in, people began racing around, shouting conflicting instructions and attempting to warn the flagship of imminent danger. First, there was a flashing light warning about the torpedo which unfortunately indicated the torpedo was headed in another direction. Next, the Porter signaled that the torpedo was going reverse at full speed!
Finally, they decided to break the strictly enforced radio silence. The radio operator on the destroyer transmitted "'Lion (code for the Iowa), Lion, come right." The Iowa operator, more concerned about radio procedure, requested that the offending station identify itself first. Finally, the message was received and the Iowa began turning to avoid the speeding torpedo.
Meanwhile, on the Iowa's bridge, word of the torpedo firing had reached FDR, who asked that his wheelchair be moved to the railing so he could see better
was now some thought that the Porter was part of an assassination plot.
Within moments of the warning, there was a tremendous explosion just behind the battleship. The torpedo had been detonated by the wash kicked up by the battleship's increased speed.
The crisis was over and so was Captain Walker's career. His final utterance to the Iowa, in response to a question about the origin of the torpedo, was a weak, "We did it." Shortly thereafter, the brand new destroyer, her Captain and the entire crew were placed under arrest and sent to Bermuda for trial. It was the first time that a complete ship's company had been arrested in the history of the US Navy. The ship was surrounded by Marines when it docked in Bermuda, and held there several days as the closed session inquiry attempted to determine what had happened.
Torpedo man Dawson eventually confessed to having inadvertently left the primer in the torpedo tube, which caused the launching. Dawson had
The destroyer William D. Porter was banished to the upper Aleutians. It was probably thought this was as safe a place as any for the ship and anyone who came near her.
She remained in the frozen north for almost a year, until late 1944, when she was re-assigned to the Western Pacific. However, before leaving the Aleutians, she accidentally left her calling card in the form of a five-inch shell fired into the front yard of the American Base Commander, thus rearranging his flower garden rather suddenly.
In December, 1944, the Porter joined the Philippine invasion forces and acquitted herself quite well. She distinguished herself by shooting down a number of attacking Japanese aircraft. Regrettably, after the war, it was reported that she also shot down three American planes. This was a common event on ships, as many gunners, fearful of kamikazes, had nervous trigger fin-
In April, 1945, the destroyer Porter was assigned to support the invasion of Okinawa. By this time, the greeting "Don't Shoot, We're Republicans" was commonplace and the crew of the Willie D had become used to the ribbing.
But the crew of her sister ship, the USS Luce, was not so polite in its salutations after the Porter accidentally riddled her side and superstructure with gunfire. On 10 June, 1945, the Porter's hard luck finally ran out. She was sunk by a plane which had (unintentionally) attacked it from underwater. A Japanese bomber made almost entirely of wood and canvas slipped through the Navy's defense.
Having little in the way of metal surfaces, the plane didn't register on radar. A fully loaded kamikaze, it was headed for a ship near the Porter, but just at the last moment veered away and crashed alongside the unlucky destroyer. There was a sigh of relief as the plane sunk out of sight, but then it blew up underneath the Porter, opening her hull in the worst possible place.
Three hours later, after the last man was off board, the Captain jumped to the safety of a rescue vessel and the ship that almost changed world history slipped astern into 2,400 feet of water. Not a single soul was lost in the sinking. After everything else that happened, it was almost as if the ship decided to let her crew off at the end.

Take a good look at this sketch of a man who is wanted for exposing himself to a girl in San Marcos.
She immediately ran away and reported the incident to San Marcos High School administrators and the Sheriff's Department. The man was wearing sunglasses, a black jacket and faded blue jeans.
If you recognize the man in the sketch or have information on this incident, call the Sheriff's non-emergency line at (858) 565-5200. You can also call the Crime Stoppers anonymous tip line at (888) 580-8477. You may be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000 for information that leads to an arrest.
It happened just after 8:00 a.m. on Tuesday, December 2nd near South Rancho Santa Fe Road and Las Cruces Avenue.
The victim told deputies she was walking to San Marcos High School when she was approached by a man asking for directions to Palomar College. She tried to show the suspect using the map function on his cell phone, which he was holding at waist level. That's when the victim realized he was exposing himself.

Letters to the Editor On Iran . . .
Dear Lyle & Evelyn:
We especially appreciated your timely story entitled "The People Who Are . . . The Enemy?" which appeared in the 20th November 2014 issue of "The Paper."
We were resident in my wife's native Singapore for a number of years which included those turbulent days when the Iranian hostage crisis was unfolding [late 1979 to early 1981] . During that time, I happened to meet some Iranian people which turned out to be a truly unforgettable experience. And it very well illustrates the gist of your story on how it is not the Iranian people in general who are responsible for much of the
unrest in that part of the world but rather the fanatical leadership, both religious and political.
I was visiting the Kodak Laboratory there in Singapore to collect some slides I had made for a free-lance project for one of my clients. At the light box next to me were two husky-looking men who were speaking English but with a rather heavy accent that I didn't recognize. Being the curious person that I am, I asked one of them where he was from and he answered, "Iran, and where are you from?" I answered, "The United States." For a brief moment, which seemed like an eternity, we just stood there facing each other. They were probably as much lost for words as I was. What does one say to a person who is from a country against whom the United States was on the verge of going to war over what had become a highly-charged international crisis? I broke the ice by saying, "I feel badly about the problem between our two countries!" One of them smiled and replied, "That's between the

rulers, not the people!" With the ice broken on both sides, so to speak, we were able to enjoy a pleasant and amicable conversation thereafter. I learned that they were professional photo-journalists who were in Singapore to cover the Iranian soccer team which was in the republic for regional play-offs in preparation for the World Cup which was to be played later that year in Spain. I mentioned that my wife was Singaporean and that we had been resident in the country for around a decade.
They were probably in their 30's, of Muslim faith, married and just wanted to see good things for their wives and families like everyone else. We shook hands, wished each other well, said goodbye and went our separate ways. Memories of moments like this are never forgotten. It truly gives one a good feeling to have been able to make even a small contribution to the well-being of others and help to create a positive outcome. And I am sure that they felt the same way.

measures to receive full and fair consideration during legislative debate.
This year’s 27 new Assemblymembers will join 43 freshman who entered the Assembly after the 2012 elections. As a result, the Democratic super-majority has been eliminated in both houses and the Assembly has been remade. The addition of so many new legislators over the past two years led to more cooperation and less bickering. Though we will still disagree on many fundamentals, the elimination of most of the highly partisan old-guard should result in better policy making. That’s why I am so happy with my new position as Floor Leader. My job will involve dealing with members on both sides of the aisle so that the people’s business can be conducted smoothly, efficiently and with mutual respect, even when we disagree.

as “yellow journalism.” Pulitzer opened the way to mass-circulation newspapers that appealed to readers by offering a multiple taste in news, entertainment and advertising. Pulitzer joined the Republican Party through which he was able to land a reporting job for the St. Louis Westliche Post.
When GOP leaders needed a candidate to fill a vacancy in the State Legislature, they settled on Pulitzer, forgetting he was only 22 -- three years under the minimum age. However, his chief Democratic opponent was ineligible because he had served in the Confederate army. Pulitzer won by a 209-147 vote.
Most people today have heard of the coveted “Pulitizer Prizes” but few know what they are, is, or for whom they were named.
His age was not made an issue and he was seated as a Missouri state representative beginning in 1870. Pulitzer lived in Jefferson City for only two years, all while keeping his reporting job for the Westliche Post.
In the 1890’s, the fierce competition between The New YorkWorld and William Randolph Hearst's New York Journal caused both to use caustic editorializing, known

Joseph Pulitzer: The Man Behind The Prizes
The Prizes are named for Joseph Pulitzer, who was born in 1847 in Hungary. He became one of America’s most famous and successful newspaper publishers, starting with the St. Louis PostDispatch and later the New York World.
In 1872, Pulitzer was a delegate to the Cincinnati convention of the Liberal Republican Party which nominated Horace Greeley for the presidency. However, the attempt at electing Greeley as president failed, the party collapsed, and Pulitzer, disillusioned with the corruption in the Republican Party, switched to the Democratic Party. In 1880, he

was a delegate to the Democratic national convention and a member of its platform committee from Missouri. In 1883, Pulitzer, by now a wealthy man, purchased the New York World from Jay Gould for $346,000, and began emphasizing human-interest stories, scandal, and sensationalism. In 1895 Pulitzer introduced the popular Yellow Kid comic strip, the first to be printed in color, which was used for editorial comment instead of mere humor.
In 1895, Hearst purchased the rival New York Journal from Pulitzer's brother, Albert, then the two embarked on a circulation war. This competition with Hearst, particularly the coverage before and during the SpanishAmerican War, linked Pulitzer's name with “yellow journalism” because of the caustic editorializing in the Yellow Kid comic strip. Historians point to the combative journalism between Hearst and Pulitzer, arguably, as one of the primary causes for the SpanishAmerican War. The two publishers prodded President McKinley toward war and when the USS Maine was sunk in Havana Harbor, Hearst and Pulitzer started a war of words and pictures of their own. Pulitzer put great stock in his reporting staff. He was once asked “… why it is that you always speak so kindly of reporters and so severely of all editors?" "Well," Pulitzer replied, "I suppose it is because every reporter is a hope, and every editor is a disappointment."
Today, his name is kept alive with the Pulitzer Prizes, which were established in 1917, through a grant to Columbia University. The prizes are given annually to award achievements in journalism and photography, as well as literature, history, poetry, music and drama. Right before he died in 1911, Pulitzer founded the Columbia School of Journalism with a philanthropic bequest, which was opened in 1912.

"A Prayer from Molly"
Hi, I am Molly, a female 2 year old grayish black sweet labrador retriever. I will be spayed shortly. I was at Downey Animal Shelter and the Puppy Coalition Foundation pulled me from certain death. I look a fright with scars from bad treatment by people and still lactating. I had given birth to my newborn puppies and someone took them away and threw me into the streets of Los Angeles to fend for myself. I was weakened from nursing pups and just trying to stay alive.
Then on Nov 22, the dog catcher picked me up. They believe that people kept me long enough for me to have my puppies. They then took them to sell and dumped me in the streets. It was hard surviving on the streets in my condition plus I was distressed about my babies. They weren't even ready to leave me and probably won't make it. My picture probably shows my distraction about them.
Emmy is the pet of the week at your Rancho Coastal Humane Society. She’s an 11 month old, 13 pound, West Highland Terrier / Poodle mix (a Westie-poo).

She will do great with an active family that will continue her training and include her in everything they do. She was transferred to Rancho Coastal Humane Society through FOCAS. The $145 adoption fee for Emmy includes medical exam, vaccinations, spay, and microchip. Find your best friend at Rancho Coastal Humane Society at 389 Requeza Street in Encinitas or log on to SDpets.org. Call 760-7536413 for more information. Kennels and Cattery open 11 AM to 5 PM Wednesday through Monday.
Volunteers say I am sweet and take treats gently. I am hoping for a good Christmas. Praying hard and hope to see you real soon.
I am looking for a permanent home but even a nice loving home with fosters would be wonderful with people who could cuddle me a little. Sincerely, (Paws Crossed for a miracle) Molly
This sweet little lady just loves to share her affection with everyone she meets. Her playful puppy antics and gentle manners are sure to keep her new family laughing. She can often be found giving affectionate kisses and snuggling close to anyone who pets her. She is very curious about the world around her and loves to investigate new sights and sounds. She will proudly sit for a treat and is incredibly gentle. Picadilly is available for adoption at San Diego Humane Society’s Escondido Campus at 3450 East Valley Parkway.

your PC purchase or upgrade is not usually a tax deductible item (although there are exceptions). When you buy or upgrade is not important for tax purposes but this may still be a good time to consider buying new or upgrading for other reasons. Paul & Nome Van Middlesworth, The Computer Factory
When should you buy your new notebook/desktop PC?
If your old PC is a business expense, the answer is that you should probably consider upgrading it or buy a replacement before Jan.1st. A PC purchase or upgrade for your business can usually be “expensed” within the calendar year, so squeezing the expense into 2014 will likely reduce your 2014 personal income tax by 15% to 40% of the purchase or upgrade cost. Whether your business is a proprietorship, partnership or corporation, it usually makes sense to take your expenses in a good year and get the tax savings up front. For home and school users,

Each chicken has been described as “having a personality all its own.” Funds raised from the chicken sculptures will support the San Marcos Arts Council’s mission to “foster and promote an arts environment that enriches the community and envision a culturally exciting and artistically vibrant community wherein all forms of the arts flourish.” Through the help of the community, the Council utilized the Chicken Parade to raise revenue for arts programming for fiscal years 2015-2016.

The majority of home and business users want nothing to do with Windows 8. Until Microsoft releases a replacement for Win 8, Win 7 will be the only reasonable operating system (OS) choice for new PCs or upgrades. On October 31st Microsoft stopped selling Win 7 Home Premium licenses to PC companies making it even more difficult to find Win 7 PCs in retail stores. Now independent PC builders, like us, are the only real source for new Win 7 notebooks and desktops PCs.
Microsoft’s successor to Win 8, Windows 10, will be released sometime in late 2015. We believe that Win 10 will follow Microsoft’s decades old pattern of alternating good and bad operating systems. Windows 3.1 (good) Win 95 (bad) Win 98 (good) Win ME (bad) Win XP (good) Win Vista (bad) Win 7 (good) Win 8 (bad) Win 10 (good, we hope). Win 10 will not be a breakthrough product. Instead Win 10 will return to the keyboard/mouse friendly user interface employed by Win 7 and lost with Win 8. Even if Win 10 is released late next year as announced we would recommend avoiding it until after its first major upgrade release (usually six months
to a year). That means that Win 10 will not be a practical alternative to Win 8 until mid 2016 at best.
If you own a Windows XP PC manufactured prior to 2007 and you plan to keep using the Internet you will probably need to buy a new or refurbished Win 7 PC within the next few months. If you own an XP or Vista based PC manufactured in 2007 or later you should consider upgrading its OS to Windows 7. If you have a Windows 7 PC built before 2013 you should sit tight until Win 10 is a year old and then consider your upgrade options. If you have a Windows 7 PC built after 2012 you are in good shape
Microsoft will support Win 7 through April of 2020. The new notebook and desktop PCs we build and sell and the PCs that we upgrade will continue to be based on Win 7 until Microsoft comes up with a proven replacement for Win 8. We purchase Win 7 licenses in hundred piece lots and maintain a large safety stock to protect our ability to continue to produce and upgrade Win 7 products. free monthly event, Oceanside Art Walk has already introduced both new and established artists and artisans to thousands of cultural enthusiasts as it continues to draw audiences from San Diego to L.A. and beyond.

Tom Stinson, District Communications Director for Assembly Member Marie Waldron, presents certificate recognizing The Computer Factory as the Business of the Month for November, 2014
The Computer Factory features quality computers, sales and service in San Marcos and has for years.
The owners, Paul and Nome Van Middlesworth, combine computer savvy with local customer service that’s often not available elsewhere. Having served as a vice president of operations with high-tech companies like Packard Bell and United Telcom, Paul gained vast experience in the computer field, though he had never worked in a retail environment. Nevertheless, when the opportunity to open their own computer store in San Marcos arose in 1995, Paul and Nome jumped at the chance. Despite competition from big box stores, the ability to give customers what they want by providing local sales, advice and repair service has made The Computer Factory a success. In addition to running a successful business, Paul has served as a board member of the San Marcos Chamber of Commerce, including stints as membership chairman and incoming board chairman for 2015. Paul has also served as president of two local Lions Clubs, and is a founding member of Mission 316 Church.
By combining entrepreneurial success with community involvement, small business owners like the Van Middlesworths enrich their communities. For these reasons, Assemblymember Waldron was very pleased to name The Computer Factory my Business of the Month for November, 2014.

break into a house in an unincorporated area of Escondido, authorities said. San Diego County Sheriff’s Department responded to the 2000 block of Rancho Verde Drive at 8:20 a.m. when a resident chased an attempted burglar out of their house, deputies said.
“The helicopter was hovering over our block saying white male wearing a mask – stay in doors,” Kevin Nguyen told Fox 5. “Cop cars were around the block and they were searching through yards.” The suspect was found hiding in a yard and taken into custody by 11 a.m. One resident found two bags of stolen items on his doorstep and returned them to authorities, Nguyen said. The identity of the suspect was not released. Escondido Police Nab 3 in Saturation Patrol

Local Council of Community Clinics Received Grant – Five members of the Council of Community Clinics received $1.25 million from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to “establish or expand behavioral health services.” Each of the five received $250,000; the local clinic being the North County Health Services. The funds will enable health centers to hire new mental health professionals, add mental health and substance use disorder health services, and employ integrated models of primary care. The Council of Community Clinics and its subsidiaries represent and support community clinics and health centers in their efforts to provide access to quality health care and related services for the diverse communities they serve with an emphasis on low income and uninsured populations. For more information, please visit www.ccc-sd.org. Neighborhood Healthcare CEO Tracy Ream already has plans for their grant. The organization will add a full-time behavioral health provider with experience in substance abuse and will also implement screening and treatment for substance use disorders. “The funding is critical,” she said, “because in our North Inland service area, nearly 300 individuals per 100,000 of the population were diagnosed with an acute alcoholrelated disorder in 2011, and some 80 per 100,000 were diagnosed with a substance-related disorder.” She added that hiring a behavioral health provider will also create more access to services for those patients who could benefit from health behavior change interventions.

to an undercover agent the ABC pulled the liquor license for a downtown Oceanside restaurant for 20 days and if/when it is restored they will be on probation for two years. Authorities said Davina's Cabo Grill & Cantina's license was suspended after the incident occurred earlier this year. The restaurant is on North Tremont Street near the beach. Brett Poorman, the general
manager, said the establishment is cooperating with law enforcement and will remain open serving only food until the suspension is lifted.
Poorman said the employee was the “one bad apple” that caused a major problem. While the transaction occured outside the restaurant the initial contact was inside.
The state Alcoholic Beverage Control office confirmed that the restaurant will also be on probation for two years. The license suspension will be in effect through Dec. 28. Oceanside police participated in the operation. A spokesman said the department routinely conducts undercover sting operations to make sure businesses follow ABC rules.
Poorman said all his restaurant employees were trained in the correct procedures and this one employee “just slipped through the cracks.” High Speed Vista Crash Injures Man

Join us for The Farewell Shows Doug Best Swings and Sharon’s Show this Saturday, December 13th, from 7am to 1pm KKSM, 1320 AM Palomar College Radio
“Ol’ Doug Best” - host of Doug Best Swings - 7am - 11am
Sharon Prince, host of “Sharon’s Show” - 11am-1pm
Palomar College officials have decided to bring to a close two longrunninbg programs on KKSM Radio, that of the Doug Best Swings Show and Sharon’s Show. Palomar College plans to utilize those time slots to train young college students in the broadcasting art.
For over 50 years, Doug Best has been bringing the big band sound to radio listeners throughout San Diego County; Sharon Prince has been presenting ‘theme radio’ along with humor and helpful hints. Now, a new generation of broadcasters begin to learn their profession.
We hope you will join us this Saturday to thank both Doug and Sharon for hours and years of wonderful entertainment and wish them well in their retirement. Two outstanding broadcasters . . . we hate to say good-bye, but must . . . and so, reluctantly, we bid farewell to these two wonderfully talented folks. Perhaps you’d like to call on-air and wish them well. The radio station number is 760.744-1150 x5576 (During Doug and Sharon’s Shows only).
"Arthritis Joint Pain Gone Within Weeks with Laser Therapy"
Living with Arthritis pain can affect every part of your life. It keeps you from enjoying the good things in life - time with grandkids, playing golf, even working in the yard.
Wouldn’t it be nice to get out of bed without pain for just one morning? Every time you try and push through the pain... like standing or walking for a long period of time.. . you pay for it for the next 2-3 days with even more pain. So, you take some pain pills... Pain Pills Are Not the Answer Do you remember the Vioxx scandal?
It was a medication designed to relieve arthritis pain... but like all drugs, it had side effects.
After years of use worldwide, the makers withdrew it from the market because of the overwhelming evidence it caused heart attacks and strokes.
There’s a time to use pain medications, BUT not before seeking a natural way to correct the CAUSE of the problem! Ask yourself... after taking all these pain medications... maybe for years... are you any better off?
Do You Have Any of these Arthritis-related Symptoms?
• Osteoarthritis • Rheumatoid Arthritis • Bursitis or Tendonitis • Shoulder Pain • Back pain • Knee Pain • Degenerative Joint Disease • Lumbar Disc Problems • Aching Pain in the Arms or Legs
older- that you should expect to have Arthritis? Sure, if you don't take care of your damaged joints now as you get older they will get worse.
However, old age is not the cause of your Arthritis. I'll venture to say all 360 joints in your body are the same age, yet Arthritis and joint degeneration has not affected every one of them - only your previously injured joints that never healed properly.
My name is Dr. Stephen Heilman, D.C., owner and clinical director of North Inland Pain Relief Institute. Over the past 15 plus years, I have seen thousands of people come in to my office that were suffering from Arthritis pain. After treatment, they often leave the institute pain free or with significantly reduced pain. How can we achieve these results? It is quite simple: our years of experience and a dedication to the safest and most effective healing technologies - like Nexus Laser Therapy.
We have made it our institute's mission to help those suffering with chronic pain like you. What is Laser Therapy?
Laser Therapy is on the cutting edge of pain relief. Laser Therapy provides healing energy to the tissues that are swollen, painful, stiff, and inflamed from Arthritis. You are in pain because there is damage to the soft tissues of the body: muscles, tendons, ligaments, and the tissues surrounding the joints.Laser Therapy significantly benefits these injured tissues by speeding up the healing process, by decreasing pain, and by reducing inflammation faster than comparable therapies.
Pain Is Not Just "Old Age"
Have you had one doctor after another telling you this is just the natural process of the body getting
Laser Therapy is used by elite pain centers
around the world and by professional sports teams. In fact, we have the same laser used by over 40 professional sports teams, including the Los Angeles Dodgers, New York Rangers, and Boston Celtics. So when Laser Therapy is added to the conventional physical therapies, the results are amazing. By the way, the treatment is painless! Is This Solution Right For You!

Feel the Improvement; Say "Yes" to Life again!
Arthritis Can Be Successfully Treated "I have suffered with a painful knee ever since the Vietnam War. Before this laser treatment, I had pain whenever I went up or down the stairs. I went through several injections, wore knee braces, and had all kinds of tests and none of it worked at all. Dr. Heilman thought that Laser therapy could help me and he was right. The treatment felt really good and you could actually feel it working. The pain is so much less that I can walk up and down the stairs again.” Joe Heard, Escondido, CA.
With our "Arthritis Laser Evaluation," we can find the problem and then correct it. Think of how you could feel in just a few short weeks. Laser Therapy can help your life change for the better.
Start your body on the way to pain-free, normal living. Feel your stiff and painful joints rest, relax, and finally have less pain. Feel your knotted muscles become more supple and feel the strength in your muscles increase. As you begin to see motion returning to your joints, you are reducing chances of immobility and disability - a crippling future that you can prevent. You're playing golf again, exercising again, playing with your grandkids again, and even walking with that spring in your step again! Healthy, pain-free living should be yours.
