The time-worn adage: “Easier said than done,” always seems to apply to someone else and never to ourselves. This is a common inclination born of human egotism. It’s easy to say we would’ve followed Jesus in his rebellious behavior over two thousand years ago, but in reality, we may not have! His loyal disciples who ate, slept, and believed him to be the Hebrew Messiah, still scattered and deserted him during his greatest moments of need. Would you have fared any better? Would your faith have been mightier than that of his loyal disciple, Simon Peter, whom Jesus called “The Rock”?

If Jesus were here today, and beckoned you to leave your family, your wife, your husband, your children, and cherished loved ones – would you deny yourself, and follow him? Suddenly, the time-worn phrase, “Easier said than done,” takes on new meaning. The phrase suddenly challenges us into a deeply profound discussion of who we are today, and how – if any – we have changed as human beings, over the course of twenty-one centuries. But first, it is incumbent that we establish a reasonable foundation that this man we call Jesus (Yeshua), even existed. Otherwise, all related discussion would be rendered moot and, therefore, irrelevant for the purpose outlined in this article. (Whether we believe the historical figure named Jesus to be divine or mortal, is not an issue in this article.)

The fact that he actually existed is a corroborated fact so overwhelming that it is a shared consensus among the most established antiquity scholars, both Christian and secular. Even his detractors grant him historical reality; rather they position themselves as doubtful regarding his claim to divinity. The rule-breaker, Jesus, is a true historical figure whose existence is well established even outside the boundaries of Christian bias. This revolutionary Jew called Jesus is cited in too many non-Christian sources to enumerate here. However, the most salient examples in which he is recorded, are by historian and Pharisee, Flavius Josephus (A.D. c. 37 to c. 100); Roman writer and scholar, Pliny the Younger (Gaius Plinius Caecilius Secundas, (A.D. c. 62 to c. 114)); Roman governor and historian, Publius Cornelius Tacitus (A.D. c. 55 to c. 120); and Roman biographer and antiquarian,

Gaius Suetonius Tranquillus (A.D. c. 69 to c. 140). As modern Jewish author, scholar, and professor, Rabbi Lewis D. Soloman states: “Two thousand years ago Jesus walked the face of the earth, of that there is no doubt.” (The esteemed Rabbi Solomon, however, does not subscribe to Jesus being the true Messiah (Mashiach).)

Whether Jesus existed or not is no longer a cogent query, though there will always be those who will persist in that regard, usually outside the realm of serious scholarship credentials. As such, these elements are not attributed sober consideration.

Is this the Image of Jesus?

A team of forensic scientists have come up with what is now believed to be the most accurate portrayal yet of the Christian Messiah. And, perhaps not really that unsurprisingly, considering where he originated from, Jesus has a much darker appearance than we are used to.

Using a new scientific field known as forensic anthropology used in crime fighting, British scientists teamed up with Israeli archaeologists to create a computer generated photo fit of Jesus to show what he probably really looked like. The Bible gives little clues as to his actual appearance, so how did they do it? The team worked on the description given by evangelist Matthew that it was hard to tell Jesus apart from his disciples during his arrest in the Garden of Gethsemane.

This led to the conclusion that Christ would have had the typical features of the Galilean Semites of the time. http://www.express.co.uk/news/science/626779/JESUS-CHRIST-Is-thatwhat-he-really-looked-like

The question of whether Christians today, would truly follow the historical Jesus and his revolutionary ways is an irresistible ‘feeding trough’ for contemporary pastors and ministers to sermonize over. It is a most fantastic conception with enormous implications. The debate and painful soul-searching it forces Christians to experience, is a requirement of their faith: “How much do you love your Christ, and to what end would you sacrifice for him?” It is surprising to note that many Christians, initially, are recorded to be steadfast and adamant in expressing their unswerving loyalty to their Christ, stating that they would have followed him during the time that he lived. However, upon deeper reflection of the danger in which Jesus lived and rebelled, these same Christians refine and, sometimes, retract their carte blanche remarks. This is an enormously fascinating study of the human psyche, belief system, and the imperfect attributes of our species, such as weakness and temptation (all the quintessential elements that come into play in all the Gospel commentaries)! So, before you jump on board the popularity wagon as a Jesus-follower (if you were back in his day), perhaps you should know a little more about him before the wagon gets hitched. We often forget that this historical Jewish rabbi we call Jesus was, in actual-

Give Us This Day Our Daily Chuckle This week, a compendium of wit, wisdom and neat stuff you can tell at parties. Enjoy! Warming Christmas Story

A couple was in a busy shopping center just before Christmas. The wife suddenly noticed that her husband was missing, and as they had a lot to do, she called him on his cell phone. The wife said "Where are you? You know we have lots to do."

He said, "Do you remember the jewelry store we went into about 10 years ago, and you fell in love with a diamond necklace? I could not afford it at the time, and I said that one day I would get it for you." Little tears started to flow down her cheek, and she got all choked up. Yes, I do remember

ity, an extremist to the ninth power! A dangerous revolutionary in the eyes of the established Jewish religious orthodoxy, 21 centuries ago! It becomes easy for us to say we would follow him in his rebel-rousing ways from the comfort of our warm, safe homes, today.

In truth, we don’t know what it was actually like to exist in that volatile and explosive region of the ancient world. It was a filthinfested, diseased pagan world under the cruel control of the Roman Empire! You forget about the rape of your children, and grandchildren, and the sodomizing of your wife, husband, and parents. The daily cold-blooded killings without lawful intervention and protection that you insist upon having in today’s modern world! We turn away in disgust over such commentaries because we lack the stomach for it, and yet we are among the first to eagerly stand up and openly declare, “Yes, of course I would’ve followed Jesus back then!” Jesus lived a most dangerous life with little or no concern for his own. To better appreciate the historical Jesus time-line, we need to see things in proper perspective. Jesus was not that original as a revolutionary. This Nazarene was far from being the first rule-breaker, challenger to the establishment and way short of even the first to be called the Messiah (Mashiach). Prior to him, there was Judas Maccabeus (born ? to 160 B.C.), who was leader of a revolt against King Antiochus’ Seleucid Empire (167-

"Well, I'm in the sports bar next to that." This is NOT a typical letter to Santa . . .

Dear Santa,

How are you? How is Mrs. Claus? I hope everyone, from the reindeer to the elves, is fine. I have been a very good boy this year. I would like an X-Box 360 with Call of Duty IV and an iPhone 4 for Christmas. I hope you remember that come Christmas Day. Merry Christmas, Timmy Jones ** Dear Timmy,

Thank you for your letter. Mrs. Claus, the reindeer and the elves are all fine and thank you for asking about them. Santa is a little worried all the time you spend playing video games and texting. Santa wouldn’t want you to get fat. Since you have indeed been a good boy, I think I’ll bring you something you can go outside and play with. Merry Christmas, Santa Claus

160 B.C). Many considered him the Messiah because he freed the Jews from foreign domination and events of his life paralleled prophecies in Daniel, chapter 8, of the Torah (Old Testament Bible). Also, there was Simon of Peraea (born ? to c. 4 B.C.), who was called the “King of the Jews,” (way before Jesus of Nazareth!). This Simon of Peraea “King of the Jews,” was truly believed to be the real Messiah (National Geographic Channel references him as, “The First Jesus”). Like the latter Jesus of Nazareth, this Simon of Peraea was also a rebel who was killed by the Romans. And then there was Athronges (born? to c. 4 B.C.), a shepherdturned-leader of a rebellion, along with his four brothers, against Herod Archelaus, after proclaiming himself the true Messiah! He and his brothers were eventually doomed to defeat! Others followed. Then there was Jesus of Nazareth. This Nazarene, Jesus, was – like his predecessors -- proclaimed to be the “Anointed One” (Messiah), and like his predecessors, was also killed by the Romans. This article will deal with Jesus of Nazareth, a rulebreaker, revolutionary, and blasphemer, in the eyes of his own Jewish settlement, and the powerful Roman Empire which eventually crucified him at Golgotha. Now that you are cognizant of the violent antecedents of our cultural Jesus, and the savage demise of his predecessors (“Messiah claimants”), the pivotal question remains, would modern-day Christians have followed him?

Luke refer to a critical encounter whereupon Jesus poses a sacrificial question to a man. Jesus’ question, on the surface, appears insensitive, harsh, perhaps even brutish. The man approaches Jesus and states that he wants to follow him. But, the man kindly asks Jesus if he can first bury his father. Jesus replies in Aramaic, “Come with me, and let the dead bury the dead.” (Aramaic Bible translation to English). Sadly, the man withdraws his request and returns to fulfill (at least in his mind) the honorable duty to his father.

Seeing that I have fulfilled the “naughty vs. Nice” contract, set by you I might add, I feel confident that you can see your way clear to granting me what I have asked for. I certainly wouldn’t want to turn this joyous season into one of litigation. Also, don’t you think that a jibe at my weight coming from an overweight man who goes out once a year is a bit trite? Respectfully, Tim Jones ** Mr. Jones,

Additionally, the exercise I alluded to will not only improve your health, but also improve your social skills and

Now, the question is, if you had just lost your son, daughter, spouse, or parents, would you have dropped everything, all burial expectations, and without leaving instructions to others, just leave to follow this Jesus? (Notation: The false notion of the ancient Jewish practice of the eldest son remaining near the body for up to one year in order to bury the bones, was never a Jewish procedure during Jesus’ day. Nevertheless, this apologetic reasoning is still used in attempts to explain Jesus’ seemingly harsh and unreasonable request. The world’s foremost Judeo-Christian and secular antiquity scholars are in full consensus that the procedure during that historic time (for the Jews) was as follows: As soon as a person was dead, the eyes were closed, he/she was kissed with love and the body was washed (Genesis 50:1, Acts 9:37).

‘The Biblical Jesus’ Cont. from Page 2

In this washing, the body was anointed with perfumes (nard was the most usual of these, however myrrh and alces were also used). During the time of Jesus, the body was customarily wrapped in shroud (as was Lazarus) and the face covered with a special cloth called a sudarium. Hands and feet were tied with strips of cloth. Once this was done, relatives and friends would come to the home to say goodbye to the deceased for the last time. All of this happened in a very short time; burial usually followed within eight hours of death. In such hot climate, burial could not be delayed. It is necessary, in an article such as this, to make excursions to address such details because there still persists, to this day, the prevalent misconception that the dead body had to remain up to one year so that the bones could be buried by the surviving family. Judeo-Christian cognoscenti believe this misinformation persists because “well-meaning” Christians do not wish for Jesus’ request to sound overly-harsh (to the son who just lost his father and only wishes to bury him first)). In any regard, how did you do on this first question? Would you have dropped everything before burying your son, daughter, spouse, or parents, and followed Jesus, as he requested? TEST TWO. In the book of Leviticus, in the Christian Old Testament (Jewish Torah), God’s law is plainly set down, regarding lepers, when (according to Scripture) God spoke directly to Moses and Aaron. Clearly, leprosy was considered a most horrible affliction during Jesus’ day. Lepers were greatly feared and certainly considered unclean (non-kosher), and definitely not allowed to worship or socialize with the common people. The Old Testament Bible enumerates specific details regarding the quarantining of lepers. Even from a far distance, if anyone is approaching, lepers must cover the mouth with their hands and shout loudly, over and over, “Unclean! Unclean!" The New Testament Bible clearly records how lepers would violate these Biblical laws by approaching Jesus without warning. In a bad-scenariomade-worse, Jesus would break all rules by openly receiving them without admonishment; touching them and, ostensibly, healing the leper of his/her affliction. All of this, even on the Sabbath.

Would you have sacrificed your health, and over-ridden a horrific fear (inherent for the time) to aid the historical Jesus in his healing ministry, when he dared touch and socially interact with lepers? Well, if you also answered “yes” to this second question, then you’re doing much better than even many of his would-be disciples!

TEST THREE. In the next sacrificial test, a very rich man is talking with Jesus. The man seems like a good person and tells Jesus he has kept all the commandments and strives to persist in

good ways. “All these things I have kept; what am I still lacking?” he asks. Jesus replies, “If you want to be perfect, go and sell all your possessions and give the money to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.” (Mathew 19:21) This story ends when the rich man silently walks away, for his wealth was great. Would you have passed this test and cleaned your entire bank account out, as well as your purse or billfold, even your pockets, and piggy bank?

Would you have said “yes” to give away all your money, home, cars, material possessions, and obeyed his invitation to follow him?

RULE-BREAKING, AN ANALYSIS. As a rule-breaker, this historical figure, Jesus, was a trail blazer. So much so, that it would eventually lead to his crucifixion at Calvary. One highly public scenario which involved a scandalous event, backfired on the religious leaders of who wished to exploit it for their own means.

It involved one of the most famous women in the Christian Bible, Mary Magdalene. It was a morning like no other. A morning that would see an unfolding of events that would capture the imagination of countless generations to come, partly because of the extreme polarity of unlikely participants: the so-called Messiah and an adulterous woman! Early in the morning this Jesus, the unpredictable iconoclast, walked into the temple and commenced teaching wisdom from the Torah when he was abruptly interrupted by the scribes and Pharisees who had plotted to trap him. Into his midst they brought a woman name Mary Magdalene. The Pharisees and scribes pointed to her and one said aloud, “Teacher, this woman was caught in adultery – in the very act! Now, Moses, in the law, commanded that such a person must be stoned.” Logically, there was no way to escape the dilemma: If this Nazarene frees her, he would openly and clearly break the Law of Moses in front of all the people assembled before him. If he agrees to have her stoned, the horrifying spectacle and bloodshed that stoning-to-death brings, would forever tarnish Jesus’ preaching of compassion and love. Biblical records substantiate that this Jewish Rabbi Jesus, stooped down without reply and calmly wrote on the ground with his finger, as though he did not hear. His plotters eagerly persisted, “But teacher, what do you say?” The plot was well-planned: if this Messianic figure said nothing, then they could claim he lacked wisdom, and therefore, not the Anointed One which many had begun to proclaim. Scripture recounts how he continued to draw silently on the ground and when they persisted for an answer, he gave one that was neither yes, no, or silence (all of which would have discredited him). Extraordinary for its day, the Nazarene, instead, answered their question with a question which evaded the plotter’s carefully pre-calculated trap. He gave a disguised answer wrapped in a query: “Who among you is without sin, for the law also commands that such a person should cast the very first stone?” (Even

contemporary secular academicians regard this as a most startling and brilliant dialogue, reminiscent of what scholars today call ‘elenctic methodology’ which was not known in that part of the ancient Jewish world. This is a subtle yet profound exhibition of archaic wisdom.)

The re-telling of this story never pales with the onslaught of the centuries. A 21st-century question for all of us is, if this Rabbi Jesus (Yeshua) were alive today, would he continue to be a rulebreaker, re-interpret our laws the way he did over two thousand years ago? In essence, he never broke Biblical law (at least to his way of thinking), rather he believed he fulfilled the law, in the manner it was intended. As a consequence, his contemporaries couldn’t chart his motives, nor predict his responses, but instead, were shocked at his unexpected exploits and reasoning. In the outline of history, whether Christian, secular, or otherwise, this historical figure, by all accounts, was most unique. He once confused the most brilliant religious leader of his day with his interpretation of Jewish rabbinical truth and Biblical law, by telling the scholarly Nicodemus, “You know the letter of the law, but you do not know the spirit of the law?” The brilliant expert on the Torah, Nicodemus (Pharisee and member of the Jewish Sanhedrin) could not fathom its meaning, nor could he comprehend the terminology of being “reborn.” According to Christian historians, Jesus’ contemporaries could not see the apparent ‘spirit of the law’ in regards to Mary Magdalene, nor the outcome of it which, ostensibly, resulted in her becoming “reborn” as a disciple. Whether Christian, Jew, or atheist, it is most noteworthy that this Mary Magdalene is recorded to have stood, resolute, at the foot of Jesus’ eventual and ignominious crucifixion, just outside the walls of Jerusalem, whilst all but one male disciple were scattered with fear. Would you have followed him? Would he do the same, today, in America? Would this figure whom Christians regard as the Messiah have continued to reinterpret Biblical laws, or over-turn man-made laws? Would he ignore Supreme Court rulings and thus transgress the Law of the Land? What would this Rabbi Jesus think and say about our laws and rules of behavior today? Contemporary Bible scholars ask the hard questions which, sometimes, move us out of our comfort zone: What would this unpredictable Jew say about the Pope? Or Capital Punishment? Prayer in public school? Gay Rights? Patricia Sanchez, scholar from Columbia University and Union Theological Seminary in New York, wonders what this Messianic Jesus would say about our current Immigration Laws and accepting or turning away the poor and the hungry? Wealthy pastors and ministers? Different religions? He was always a nitpicker. Would he give us passing grades? And would you agree with him? Would you followed him? After all, you do have your

The Great Debate

Several centuries ago, the Pope decreed that all the Jews had to convert to Catholicism or leave Italy. There was a huge outcry from the Jewish community, so the Pope offered a deal: he'd have a religious debate with the leader of the Jewish community. If the Jews won, they could stay in Italy; if the Pope won, they'd have to convert or leave. The Jewish people met and picked an aged and wise rabbi to represent them in the debate. However, as the rabbi spoke no Italian, and the Pope spoke no Yiddish, they agreed that it would be a 'silent' debate.

On the chosen day the Pope and rabbi sat opposite each other. The Pope raised his hand and showed three fingers. The rabbi looked back and raised one finger.

Next, the Pope waved his finger around his head. The rabbi pointed to the ground where he sat.

The Pope brought out a communion wafer and a chalice of wine. The rabbi pulled out an apple.

With that, the Pope stood up

On Saturday, December 19, at 8:51 p.m., officers from the Carlsbad Police Department responded to a call of a hit and run accident at Palomar Airport Road and College Drive. The reporting party followed the subject vehicle, a Toyota Camry, east on Palomar Airport Road. The driver of the Camry turned off their headlights and continued east on Palomar Airport Road. Carlsbad Police units located the Camry at the intersection of El Camino Real and Palomar Airport Road. Officers activated their overhead lights and attempted to stop the vehicle. The Camry fled eastbound at a high rate of speed and officers immediately cancelled the pursuit due to weather and roadway conditions. The Camry continued eastbound at a high rate of speed and collided with four other vehicles in the intersection of Melrose drive and Palomar Airport Road. Two persons were transported to the hospital with unknown injuries. The driver and only occupant of the 1999 Toyota Camry has been identified as a Yonna Dovone Jones, DOB 03/22/1991, from Oceanside, CA.

Carlton R. Appleby, former publisher of the Escondido Times-Advocate newspaper and a longtime local philanthropist, died Monday at his home in Dana Point.

Appleby, 92, was born in Iowa on Feb. 7, 1923. The cause of death was lung cancer, said his son, Jeff. Newspapers were always a part of the family story. Appleby’s parents, Frank and Jerene, owned a paper in La Grande, Ore., and papers in Indio and Ontario. The couple had two sons, Carlton and Andrew.

After Frank Appleby’s death in 1936, Jerene remarried and continued with the Ontario paper, the Daily Report. Both sons worked at the family papers. Carlton joined the U.S. Marine Corps and was able to take college classes at UCLA until 1944, when he reported for boot camp at Parris Island, S.C. He was commissioned a second lieutenant by April 1945 and was stationed in Hawaii. World War II ended before he saw combat.

lyle e davis, newly elected president of the Hidden Valley

Appleby served with reserve units in California through 1946. Recalled to active duty in 1951, he was sent to Korea with the Marines. On his return, he joined his mother in the publishing business, running the Ontario paper. She bought the Escondido newspaper in the early 1960s.

Originally, said Jeff Appleby, his dad ran the Ontario newspaper and his uncle Andrew was publisher of the TimesAdvocate. But after a trip to Mexico during which Andrew contracted tuberculosis, “he was flat on his back, and my dad had to take over.” Andrew decided to change careers becoming a history professor much to the disdain of my grandmother”), and Carlton remained as publisher of the Escondido paper. He met his wife, Eileen, at UCLA; she, too, served in the Marine Corps. They married in 1947 and had three children: Jeff, of Escondido; Catherine, of San Pedro; and Jackie, of Sheridan, Wyo.

The only unity in the campaign against ISIS is the plot of having the Syrian leader Assad in its crosshairs, and I am glad to see that the U.S. has belatedly recognized this fact.

This dreary "Assad must go" mantra is the most stupidly naive idea I can envision.

Accordingly, davis pointed out the chair in which Chief Carter had sat and decreed that it would be henceforth be known as "The Chief's Chair." All members present stood and bowed in the general direction of The Chief's Chair. All wore solemn, if not reverential, faces.

(Chief Carter, a former member of this club and one time president-elect) had to leave at 0815 in order to arrest bad guys. These solemn ceremonies took place after the Chief had left the building (kinda like Elvis used to do.) Once davis adjourned the meeting, all members passed by The Chief's Chair and gently touched it as they departed the banquet room. It was a touching gesture. A pity the Chief was not there to witness it. davis also made a solemn

pledge that the next time Chief Carter attended one of our meetings he would, in fact, make certain to recognize him properly. ••••• So sad to see that Carl Appleby has died. He passed away Monday, a result of lung cancer. He was 92. Carl was a good friend. We worked together on several major stories when I managed KOWN Radio in Escondido and he was the publisher of the Times Advocate.

We had a chance to visit about three weeks ago and his mind was still alert but he admitted to some health issues; his wife is also in ill health but has round the clock care. Carl Appleby was the classic definitition of a gentleman. A great employer who loved his employees and they loved him back. He was a terrific newspaper man and left a great legacy in the profession when he finally retired. The world is a little poorer place with Carl gone . . . but it’s a much better place because he was here.

Loved the man. Will miss him. Those who worked with him and for him will admit to the same deep affection for a super human being.

and declared himself beaten. He said that the rabbi was too clever. The Jews could stay in Italy. Later the cardinals met with the Pope and asked him what had happened.

The Pope said, "First I held up three fingers to represent the Trinity. He responded by holding up a single finger to remind me there is still only one God common to both our beliefs. Then, I waved my finger around my head to show him that God was all around us.

The rabbi responded by pointing to the ground to show that God was also right here with us. I pulled out the wine and wafer to show that God absolves us of all our sins, and the rabbi pulled out an apple to remind me of the original sin. He bested me at every move. I could not continue." Meanwhile, the Jewish community gathered to ask the rabbi how he'd won. "I haven't a clue," said the rabbi. "First, he told me that

we had three days to get out of Italy, so I gave him the finger. Then he tells me that the whole country would be cleared of Jews and I told him that we were staying right here. "And then what?" asked a woman.

"Who knows?" said the rabbi. "He took out his lunch so I took out mine." Safe and Secure

strong, personal opinions on all the above.

If he appeared at your front doorstep and asked you, right now, to leave your home and family and follow him, could you, would you? If this sounds unreasonable, read the Torah regarding God’s test to Abraham: he told Abraham to kill his own son, Isaac. There is no limit what may be inquired of you. No one can chart the mind of a Biblical deity. Theologians proclaim that humans cannot put boundaries to his reasoning. Would Jesus shock us today with his views and rebellious ways? Many JudeoChristian and secular authorities say it’s probable! Such questioning often makes us squeamish, perhaps even angry. Humans are quick to anger, at times. We all have our private bias, disguised agendas, and hidden prejudices. Psychologists claim it is impossible for humans to be totally objective because we are inherently subjective, even if mostly on the subconscious level. Author, Anne Lamott, once quipped, “You can safely assume you’ve created God in your own image when it turns out that God hates all the same people you do.” If we think we know exactly how the Christian Jesus thinks on all these complex and diverse issues,

will ensure they are not treated as war criminals by whichever psychopathic branch of heavily armed bandits happens to rule their hometown after Assad? They won't be welcomed home as heroes; no one has any idea how they will be treated and no one will want to risk it. The Syrian army comprises a quarter of a million soldiers or more, many of whom have been fighting for nearly five years. The thought of these armed, battle-scarred veterans on the streets with no work, should terrify Europe and the US, but nobody at the top seems to care. Just look at what happened to the Iraq Army after its defeat, and you will have a good idea of what may be in store. Many of its soldiers are now fighting as members of ISIS, so the West is just adding another army to the list of its enemies, only this one is much more professional than the others. Cheers,

‘The Biblical Jesus’ Cont. from Page 5

well, you might be surprised! After all, he seemed to break all the rules when he walked the Earth over two millennia ago! His religious contemporaries were absolutely, 100-percent positive what was right and what was wrong and they had the Good Book to quote from! Yet, somehow, this mystical, elusive, even dangerous revolutionary (as he was viewed), was anything but predictable, even by the religious conventions of his day! And is it okay to ask questions, such as these? Or even to have Biblical doubts? Bible scholar and respected teacher, Kent Dobson, says: “I feel a lot of connection with this Thomas character who ends up getting called the Doubting Thomas. He doubts Jesus’ resurrection, and I bring my own questions and doubts to the Bible and to the story of Jesus.” (And yet, Dobson remains a steadfast Christian believer.)

As human beings, we all have doubts, some more than others. As scholar Dobson puts it, “I think that’s just part of being an honest person; really trying to wrestle with some of this stuff.” Honesty is certainly a proclaimed Christian virtue; honesty to oneself is as important as to someone else. Or so Christians say. I have multiple images of Yeshua (Jesus’ true Hebrew name), trafficking with prostitutes, eating with tax collectors, healing on the Sabbath, touching lepers, speak-

MiraCosta Horticulture Club Meeting – On Saturday, January 2nd at 12:30pm, the MiraCosta Horticulture Club will meet at MiraCosta College, One Barnard Dr., Oceanside, Student Center Bldg. 3400, Aztlan Rooms A & B 2nd Floor.

Thom has been a member of the California Olive Oil Council Taste Panel for over a decade. He also has 20 years experience in sales, marketing and judging international wine competition. Following the main speaker there will be a plant raffle. Meetings generally finish around 3pm. The meeting is open to the public. For more information, call 760.721.3281.

City Offers Heart of the City Hike - The City of San Marcos begins the New Year with the first of its monthly, guided hikes on Saturday, January 2. The Heart of the City hike is an easy, three-mile trek on urban trails that will follow the rail trail east and visit Hollandia and Mulberry Parks. A more challenging eight-mile hike to the northern city limits with 580’ of elevation gain will also be offered. The hike begins at 9am (sign-ins at 8:30am). Meet at the San Marcos Community Center, 3 Civic Center Drive, San Marcos. (33 08.458N 117 09.602W) Parking is available in the parking structure. Bring water and trail snacks. Leashed dogs are allowed. Contact Ranger Ron Vinluan for more infor-

ing to Samaritans, cleansing the temple by toppling the tables of the money-changers, and calling the religious leaders (the Pharisees and Sadducees) a brood of vipers! Jesus broke so many cultural, social, and religious rules in his day that he turned the world upside down as it has never been before! Unlike his predecessors (false Messiahs), this historical Jesus had the most profound wisdom, even by the standards of today’s philosophical thinking and theological abstractions. His reference to the ‘Paraclete’ is a most astonishing notion of abstract thinking, even by today’s theological and metaphysical concepts, and even when compared to alternate religious faiths: “Unless I go away, the Counselor will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you.” (John 16.7 New International Version).

Whether Christian, agnostic, or atheist, there has been no paradigmatic individual like him, in the entire sweep of human history. This measure of recognition must be conceded to him. Believer or non-believer, he has shaped the landscape of human thinking more than anyone else. And whether he is the Christ or another imposter is something we all have to decide for ourselves. To do this day, he (seems) to remain the very personification of what Winston Churchill once said of Russia: “A riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma.”

If he were here today, and he

Winter & Spring 2016 Storytime Programs at the Library – The Escondido Public Library offers a variety of storytime programs in winter and spring 2016, designed for babies, toddlers, and pre-kindergarten children. Storytime programs are filled with fun songs, fingerplays, flannel board presentations, puppets and stories just right for the development of young minds in these age groups. Library staff are happy to help families find books to check out after storytime. This storytime schedule begins January 4th and runs through April 28th (no programs offered March 23-24 or 30-31), and includes Rhymes and Reading on Mondays at 11am for children ages 35; Baby Lapsit on Wednesdays at 10:15am for newborn babies to prewalkers; and Toddler Tales on Thursdays at 10:15am for toddlers who are walking up to 3 years old. Toddler Tales is a bilingual program. The Library’s storytime programs address the development of early literacy skills that are important in preparing children for school. Each

Some Government Agencies are Here to Help

One of the major joys in serving as an Assemblymember lies in assisting constituents in their dealings with state agencies. Now that the end of the year is approaching, it’s a good time to remember some of the ways my office has assisted residents of the 75th Assembly District over the past year. Sometimes, we have been able to help keep people in business; sometimes, we’ve helped keep them alive. For example, one recent case involved overcoming red tape that was preventing a seriously ill patient from receiving a life-saving transplant. Fortunately, we succeeded in cutting the red tape so the transplant could proceed. With agriculture such an important part of our local economy, I was happy to help a North County ranch seeking an outside source of irrigation water after its wells ran dry. Another case

storytime program is planned and presented around the idea that parents are their child’s first and most important teacher. Storytimes facilitate bonding between parents and young children and provide a positive experience with books and play that often leads to a life-long love of reading and learning. Library programs are free, open to the public, sponsored by Friends of the Escondido Public Library, and held at the Library at 239 S. Kalmia, Escondido. For more information on storytimes and other Library programs for children, visit the Library’s website at library.escondido.org or contact Children’s Librarian Kristine Macalalad at 760-839-5458 or kmacalalad@escondido.org.

Carlsbad Senior Center Offers Monthly Events – The Senior Center hosts The Pier Group for their first appearance on Thursday, January 7, from 1:30-3:30pm. Refreshments are sponsored by Carlsbad by the Sea. Admission is $4/person. The Senior Center has a new “Heart Coherent Tai Chi” class beginning Thursday, January 7, from 1pm-2:10pm. New attendees can try the class, and only pay if they decide to register for the full session. At ages 76 and 80, instructors Richard and Renee Wing have taught in north County for 12 years and use aligned, balanced, and breath-coordinated meditations for body/mind wellness. Fee for four classes is $35.10 for residents, and $39 for non-residents. Participants must register for the class before January 5th. Then the monthly book club for adults 50+ will meet on Monday, January 11, from 1pm-2:30pm. The book selection for this meeting is “Lisette’s List,” by Susan Vreeland. February’s book

involved a shipment of plants bound for a local nursery that was needlessly blocked at California’s port of entry, potentially costing the company thousands. In still another case, my office assisted local landowners who were attempting to resolve a vexing housing issue involving conflicting state and county regulations. I’m happy to report these issues have all been resolved.

Other cases handled over the past year have included DMV licensing, EDD benefit payments, state disability, incorrect bills from the Franchise Tax Board, licensing for nursing and other professions, and a case involving Department of Justice roadblocks preventing a legitimate firearms purchase.

Please keep my District Office in mind when you have concerns involving a state agency or department. My District Office can be reached by calling 760-4807570 or by emailing me at Assemblymember.waldron@assembly.ca.gov

My only consolation as a writer, researcher, scrutinizer, and doubter-of-most-things, is my humble summation: I truly believe Him to be the metaphysical Prime Mover incarnate, the Alpha and the Omega. Our precious God.

About the Author: Frederick Gomez is a prolific writer. We have published about 24 of his essays as cover stories. He’s a brilliant researcher, documents his stories well, and continually searches for the truth.

1 cup brown sugar Lemon juice

4 large eggs (room temperature)

Historically Speaking by Tom Morrow

A proud member of the Kumeyaay nation, he is a strong supporter of the Amerindian Historical Tales generally and the Kumeyaay nation specifically. His Kumeyaay name is White Eagle, his name, Frederick, is actually pronounced in the German manner as Fredrich.

Besides being a great storyteller, writer, and historian, he also has a wild sense of humor and has caught us on more than one occasion with his pranks. He’s a bit of a rascal. At times.

Santa Claus: A Character of Fact or Fiction

With Christmas right around the corner, youngsters are going to bed at night dreaming (or hoping) Santa Claus will grant their wishes for that magical morning.

Was Santa Claus a real person? If so, who was he, if, indeed, he ever existed.

Santa Claus, a.k.a. many names: Saint Nicholas, Saint Nick, Father Christmas, Kris Kringle, Santy, or simply Santa is a figure with legendary, historical and folkloric origins who, in many Western cultures, is said to bring gifts to the homes of the good children on Dec. 24, the night before Christmas Day.

The modern figure of Santa Claus

Nuts (your choice) 1 bottle tequila

2 cups dried fruit Directions:

Sample tequila to check quality; Take a large bowl; check tequila again to be sure it is of the highest quality.. Repeat.

Turn on the electric mixer. Beat one cup of butter in a large fluffy bowl. Add 1 teaspoon of sugar. Beat again.

At this point, it is best to make sure the tequila is still OK. Try another cup just in case. Turn off the mixerer thingy.

Break 2 eegs and add to the bowl and chuck in the cup of dried fruit Pick the fruit up off the floor. Mix on the turner.

is derived from the Dutch figure of Sinterklaas, whose name is a dialectal pronunciation of Saint Nicholas, the historical Greek bishop and gift-giver of Myra. During the Christianization of Germanic Europe, this figure may have absorbed elements of the god Odin, who was associated with the Germanic pagan midwinter event of Yule and led the Wild Hunt, a ghostly procession through the sky.

Santa Claus is generally depicted as a portly, joyous, white-bearded man -- sometimes with spectacles -- wearing a red coat with white collar and cuffs, white-cuffed red trousers, and black leather belt and boots and who carries a bag full of gifts for children. Images of him rarely have a beard with no moustache.

Santa’s image became popular in the United States and Canada in the 19th century due to the significant influence of the 1823 poem "A Visit From St. Nicholas" and of caricaturist and political cartoonist Thomas Nast. This image has been maintained and reinforced through song, radio, television, children's books and films. (As an aside, which has nothing to do with the subject at hand, cartoonist Thomas Nast created a term in the English language from his often sharp stabs at political figures.. His drawings became known as “Nasties.” Hence, the common phrase of “that’s nasty” or “you’re being

The Pastor Says . . .

Haiku is pet of the week at your Rancho Coastal Humane Society. He’s a 1 year old, 45 pound, Australian Shepherd / Smooth Coat Collie mix.

When he’s inside Haiku wants to snuggle and get as close to you as possible. Outside he wants to run and play and enjoy life to the fullest. He needs a family that will include him in their day to day activities. Haiku was transferred to Rancho Coastal Humane Society through the FOCAS program. The $145 adoption fee for Haiku includes medical exam, vaccinations, neuter and microchip.

Batman, a 2-year-old Domestic Short Hair mix, is looking for a loving new home. This sweet tabby was relinquished into our care by her previous owners who could no longer care for her. The change in environment from a home to a shelter has been a little tough for Batman, but her caregivers have taken some extra time to try ease her stress and make her feel more comfortable. She can be a bit shy at first, but with a little patience, she will slowly come out of her shell. She will happily come out of her habitat when she’s ready for pets, but sometimes she just enjoys some quiet time on her own for a long nap. Batman loves to play with a laser pointer, and uses her scratching post often. She is very affectionate towards her humans, and would prefer a home with no other cats around so she can be the center of attention! Batman is available for adoption at the San Diego Humane Society’s Escondido Campus at 3450 East Valley Parkway. For information, please call (760) 888-2275.

One grandson lined up three of his favorite cars, almost to scale, next to the stable. No doubt transportation for the Wise Men. Our animal-loving grandson liked to over-crowd the stable with animals that had probably never been seen in Bethlehem. Lions and tigers and bears, oh my! And elephants as well. In his mind, Mary and Joseph made the long journey on an Okapi.

Pastor Tom Fry (Retired) Church of the Nazarene Nativity Sets

My wife collects Nativity sets. One year there were more than 30 displayed in our home. In every room, on every possible shelf or flat surface.

They come in various sizes, shapes and even a number of ethnicities. Some are by well known artisans, others are craft projects from our children or grandchildren. Some are theologically accurate while others have a questionable theology. As our children, and then grandchildren, got to the walking around stage, some unusual pieces started showing up in the scenes. Weebles here and there, lego people, an occasional outsized stuffed animal.

With the children we would chuckle and then tell them to put their toys “back where they belonged.” When the grandchildren came along, we still chuckled, but left the visitors where they were. It’s just that way with grandparents, isn’t it?

But, somehow, the little ones with their tiny cars and their jungle animals had caught the real meaning of what the angels said to the shepherds on that night so long ago: “For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.” Then a whole angelic chorus filled the skies and sang: “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth, peace, goodwill toward men.” The truth is, everyone is invited to the stable.

We are invited to come and worship. Come and worship Christ the newborn king. Come, take your place around the manger, right there next to the Lego guy and the Hot Wheels ’57 Chevy.

‘Tom Morrow’ Cont. from Page 7 nasty” was created).

Since the 20th century, in an idea popularized by the 1934 song "Santa Claus Is Coming to Town," Santa Claus has been believed to make a list of children throughout the world, categorizing them according to their behavior ("naughty" or "nice") and to deliver presents, including toys, and candy to all of the well-behaved children in the world, and sometimes coal to the naughty children, on the single night of Christmas Eve. He accomplishes this feat with the aid of the elves who make the toys in the workshop and the flying reindeer who pull his sleigh. He is commonly portrayed as living at the North Pole and using the phrase: "ho ho ho" often and whenever possible.

But what really happens when you ask for help with an erection lasting more than 4 hours?

The woman I was talking to said that she was the only pharmacist as she and her sister owned the store, and there were no male employees. She then asked if she could help me. I said that I would prefer to speak to a male pharmacist.

The lady pharmacist assured me that she was completely professional and whatever it was that I needed to discuss, I could be confident that she would treat me with a high level of professionalism.

I reluctantly agreed and began by saying: “This is tough for me to discuss, but I get erections every day that last more than four hours. It causes me a lot of problems and severe embarrassment and I was wondering what you could give me for it?” The pharmacist said, "Just a minute, I'll talk to my sister." When she returned, she said, “We discussed it at length and this is the absolute best we can do: ...1/3 ownership in the store, ...a company pickup truck, ...a king size bed, and ...$3,000 a month in living expenses" HOLIDAY EATING TIPS

1. Avoid carrot sticks. Anyone who puts carrots on a holiday buffet table knows nothing of the Holiday spirit. In fact, if you see carrots, leave immediately. Go next door, where they're serving rum balls. 2. Drink as much eggnog as you can. And quickly. It's rare. You cannot find it any other time of year but now. So drink up! Who cares that it has 10,000 calories in every sip? It's not as if you're going to turn into an eggnog-alcoholic or something. It's a treat. Enjoy it. Have one for me. Have two. It's later than you think. It's Christmas!

3. If something comes with gravy, use it. That's the whole point of gravy. Gravy does not stand alone. Pour it on. Make a volcano out of your mashed potatoes. Fill it with gravy. Eat

the volcano. Repeat.

4. As for mashed potatoes, always ask if they're made with skim milk or whole milk. If it's skim, pass. Why bother? It's like buying a sports car with an automatic transmission. 5. Do not have a snack before going to a party in an effort to control your eating. The whole point of going to a Holiday party is to eat other people's food for free. Lots of it. Hello? 6. Under no circumstances should you exercise between now and New Year's. You can do that in January when you have nothing else to do. This is the time for long naps, which you'll need after circling the buffet table while carrying a 10-pound plate of food and that vat of eggnog.

7. If you come across something really good at a buffet table, like frosted Christmas cookies in the shape and size of Santa, position yourself near them and don't budge. Have as many as you can before becoming the center of attention. They're like a beautiful pair of shoes. If you leave them behind, you're never going to see them again. 8. Same for pies. Apple, Pumpkin, Mincemeat. Have a slice of each. Or if you don't like mincemeat, have two apples and one pumpkin. Always have three. When else do you get to have more than one dessert? Labor Day? 9. Did someone mention fruitcake? Granted, it's loaded with the mandatory celebratory calories, but avoid it at all cost. I mean, have some standards.

10. One final tip: If you don't feel terrible when you leave the party or get up from the table, you haven't been paying attention. Re-read tips; start over, but hurry, January is just around the corner. Remember this motto to live by: "Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate and wine in one hand, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO what a ride!" DEAR DIARY - DAY 1

All packed for the cruise ship - all my nicest dresses, swimsuits, and short sets.

Really, really exciting. Our local Red Hat chapter - The Late Bloomers - decided on this "all-girls" trip. It will be my first one - and I can't wait! ••••• DEAR DIARY - DAY 2 Entire day at sea, beautiful. Saw whales and dolphins.

Met the Captain today -- seems like a very nice man. ••••• DEAR DIARY - DAY 3 At the pool today. Did some shuffleboard, hit golf balls off the deck.

Captain invited me to join him at his table for dinner. Felt honored and had a wonderful time. He is very attractive and attentive. ••••• DEAR DIARY - DAY 4 Won $800.00 in the ship's casino. Captain asked me to have dinner with him in his own cabin. Had a scrumptious meal complete with caviar and champagne.

He asked me to stay the night, but I declined. Told him I could not be unfaithful to my husband. ••••• DEAR DIARY - DAY 5 Pool again today. Got sunburned, and I went inside to drink at piano-bar, stayed there for rest of day. Captain saw me, bought me several large drinks. Really is quite charming. Again asked me to visit his cabin for the night. Again I declined. He told me that if I did not let him have his way with me, he would sink the ship... I was shocked. ••••• DEAR DIARY - DAY 6 Today I saved 2600 lives. Twice.

••••• An elderly lady received a new radio at the lunch as a door prize and was writing to say thank you. This story is a credit to all humankind ... especially if you are familiar with the elderly. Forward to anyone you know who might need a lift today. Dear Lincoln Elementary,

God bless you for the beautiful radio I won at your recent Senior Citizens luncheon. I am 84 years old and live at the Springer Home for the Aged. All of my family has passed away. I am all alone now and

The Paper • Page 12 • December 24, 2015 ening their PC products infects their entire “retail” product offerings as they compete from the bottom to the top. To supplement their narrow profit margins all these “major brand” retail PC marketers also sell advertising space on their new “retail” PCs by stuffing them with the links, popups and trial programs known as “bloatware.”

Paul & Nome Van Middlesworth, The Computer Factory

www.computerfactorysanmarcos.com

Cheap Cheap Cheap

In 2008, Steve Jobs was asked why Apple didn’t create low end PC products to compete with Windows PCs in the “Big Box” retail stores. His answer struck a chord with us. Jobs said, “There are some customers which we chose not to serve. We don't know how to make a $500 computer that's not a piece of junk, and our DNA will not let us ship that.” Well at the Computer Factory, our DNA won’t let us ship junk either. Windows PC “Junk” is a product of the fierce “retail” price competition between the big three PC brands, by market share, Lenovo (20%) HP (18%) and Dell (13%). As they battle for price leadership among themselves, performance, quality and reliability take a back seat. The trend toward cheap-

The “Corporate” or PC “workstations” sold by these same PC companies however; are an entirely different animal. “Corporate” IT professionals demand quality, reliability and performance and won’t tolerate “bloatware.” The corporate “workstations” from Dell, HP and others sell for considerably more than their “retail” cousins and for good reason.

So what does that really mean to us? It tells us that the disc itself does have a God-given ability to heal and repair if provided the proper mechanisms for self-healing. There is a specific mechanism inherent in each of the spinal discs called the “pump mechanism of disc nutri-tion” (see Fig 1). When this mechanism is not working properly, the spinal discs will begin to die causing bulges, herniations, and eventually spinal stenosis.

The spinal disc is one of the very few tissues in the body that does not have a direct blood supply for circulation. The only way that the disc gets the circulation of water, oxygen and nutrients for self-repair is via this specific disc pump mechanism. What happens when you decrease cir-culation in any type of tissue, whether it be animal tissue, plant tissue or human tissue? Exactly, it begins to become weak and begins to degenerate.

Symptoms Are NOT The Problem

Now the symptoms of pain, numbness,

Here at The Computer Factory, we build “workstations” with ASUS motherboards, Western Digital hard drives, lifetime RAM, “boxed” Intel and AMD CPUs, all with multi-year manufacturer’s warranties.

Like Steve Jobs, we don’t try to sell our PC “workstations” to the retail bottom feeders slurping up the loss leaders at Best Buy and Fry’s. Even our refurbished PCs in “Refurberville” are corporate “workstations.” A

$300 four-year-old “workstation“ is a better deal than a $300 brand new “retail” bargain. For the same money would you rather have a brand new Timex or a four-year-old Rolex? Now don’t get the wrong idea, we have nothing against those “retail” PCs. We’re happy to fix them when they go south, so please don’t hesitate to bring them in. Did you ever wonder why the “retail” customer service “Help Desks” for Dell, HP, Gateway and the others are ten thousand miles away on the other side of the planet? Easy answer, those “Phone Techs” wouldn’t last a week if customers could get their hands on them.

While the “specs” on a “retail” PC and a PC “workstation” may look the same, there can be a huge difference in performance, quality and reliability. Manufacturers of PC components like hard drives, RAM, motherboards, CPUs, power supplies, etc., offer several prices and grades of their products. Through more expensive processes, materials or screening, these companies price their products according to performance, quality and reliability. “Premium” components with multi-year warranties are used in PC “workstations” while the lower grade “OEM” components are typically used

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...”

in “retail” PCs. That’s why the motherboard, RAM, hard drive or CPU in your “retail” HP or Dell has only a single year warranty while the components in PC “workstations” have multiyear warranties.

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

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

‘Chuckles’ Cont. from Page 9

it's nice to know that someone is thinking of me. God bless you for your kindness to an old forgotten lady. My roommate is 95 and has always had her own radio, but before I received one, she would never let me listen to hers, even when she was napping. The other day her radio fell off the night stand and broke into a lot of pieces. It was awful and she was in tears. Her distress over the broken radio touched me and I knew this was God's way of answering my prayers. She asked if she could listen to mine, and I told her to go to hell.

Thank you for that opportunity. Sincerely, Agnes

Recycling Christmas Trees

During this time of year, many residents ask how they can dispose of their Christmas tree. The city’s contracted waste-hauler, EDCO, provides for customers to place trees curbside on their regular collection day during the two weeks after Christmas at no extra charge (Monday, December 28 through Monday, January 11). Trimmings/stand must be removed. Organic decorations, such as natural garland and wreathes, can also be placed in the residential designated yard waste container. There are also two central drop-off locations during the same time: (1) public parking lot between S. Santa Fe Avenue and

Mercantile Street (523 S. Santa Fe Avenue) and (2) the parking lot on the corner of S. Melrose & Shadowridge drives. For more information, residents should call 760.727.1600.

Speaking of recycling, did you know Vista residents can drop off used motor oil and filters at the HHW facility located at 1145 E. Taylor Street? Antifreeze, auto batteries, paint, pesticides, home-generated sharps, and other HHW can be dropped off. The facility is open to Vista residents; proof of residency is required. No appointment is necessary and there is no direct fee. The facility is open from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturdays (closed on holiday weekends).

Ye Olde New World

It kinda started when little Keith found himself fascinated with rocks that had imprints of plants and/or animals. He would learn that these “rocks” were actually fossils. Nature’s history books that helped tell the story of a bygone age. His curiousity stimulated, he began to read all about fossils and, in the process, came across other, larger, remnants of the planet from hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of years ago.

ested. In time, they decided it might be a good idea to let adults in on all these mysteries as well.

They lived in Southern Escondido, operating their small paleontology museum out of a converted garage for 15 years. No problem.

He enjoyed his reading and studying so much that he decided when he graduated from school in Santa Clara, California, that he would pursue this fascinating study in college.

Little Keith, as little boys do, went and grew up into an adult. And his knowledge of the subject continued to increase as he studied first at Seattle Pacific University, where he earned his Bachelor of Science degree. He then continued his education in geology at the University of Washington,

As little boys do, when they grow up to be adults, a not-solittle Keith wound up meeting a young lady named Judy. He was so taken with her that he married her. She joined him in the pursuit of his lifelong interest in geology, later, to include paleontology.

Keith Roynon has spent a lifetime collecting fossils, skeletons and replicas of skeletal discoveries. When he wasn’t collecting fossils and skeletal remains of long gone animals he also collected antiques . . . so many that he eventually became an antique dealer. He and Judy would travel to the United Kingdom, for example, buy some ancient furnture, ship it home, sell it and go back to Europe on other shopping trips. The antique dealership turned out to be a good business, one they both enjoyed and prospered at.

He and Judy moved to Escondido and decided that since the home was now overflowing with all types of valuable artifacts they should open up a museum in order to share with others their wonderful collection. It was small, at first, but would grow and grow. Mostly, they catered to students who would come on field trips to see the museum’s treasures; then they’d open it up to various groups, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, any number of groups that were inter-

The Roynon Museum of Paleontology was established in 2000 as a 501©(3) non-profit foundation. The Foundation’s primary purpose is to educate students, scouts, and the general public in earth sciences, as well as to emphasize the meaning of the sequence of life throughout geological time.

The museum is a plethora of knowledge brought about by way of the thousands of specimens that have been acquired thought the years bringing into focus the overall picture of paleontology. Mr. And Mrs. Roynon add specimens to the museum each year on their travels throughout the United States. For the past 15 years the museum has been dedicated solely to the education of school children, scouts and community groups. The next chapter in the museum’s history will include the general public. Judy Roynon has been teaching elementary school in Escondido for many years. Both have devoted a lifetime towards the education of children.

Since 2000, thousands of small children — mostly on school field trips with the Poway Unified School District — have toured the homegrown museum he installed in his large garage. The museum features about 10,000 fossils and skeletal reproductions of dinosaurs and kids also participate in hands-on workshops where they learn about rocks and the Earth’s formation. Then, a neighbor filed a complaint with the city. The neighbor had put his house on the market. School buses rou-

tinely park in the cul-de-sac at Roynon’s home, the complaint said.

The neighbor was able to sell the house quickly and the rest of Roynon’s neighbors had no problem with the museum traffic. Still, once the complaint was received the city was forced to take action. T h e museum never had a business license a n d wasn’t a n allowable use in a residential neighborhood. Roynon was told he had to shut d o w n and find a new home for the museum after July 1st of this year.

Sometimes things happen in life and, momentarily, it seems to be a disaster in the making. Then, you find out that there is a purpose for evrything that happens in life. Often, things even get better. Such was the case here. Neighbors, including Jeannie Nutter, got involved. A call for help was put out to interested parties to help find a new location for the museum.

Enter Clarke Dailey, a local headmaster at a private school, an entrepeneur, an activist, a guy known for getting things done.

Science and Paleontology, now calls its home at 457 E. Grand Avenue in downtown Escondido near the old Palomar Hospital building. The larger space is “a must,” Keith Roynon told J. Harry Jones, a Union-Tribune report.

“We need to move on and upward and we need to get a big museum so we can start getting some large-bodied dinosaurs …,” said Roynon, 76.

“It’s been a hard grind to try and find a place we could afford to get into, but we finally did it.” Jeannie Nutter, now the museum’s assistant director, called the expansion Roynon’s “lifelong dream.”

“He has been collecting exhibits for the museum for over 70 years,” she said. “He’s excited he’ll finally have a place to showcase everything in a way it should be.”

The museum has about 3,000 square feet of floor space with room to grow and for the first time will be open to the general public, not just school groups.

Remember what we said earlier in this article? About how somet i m e s things happen with a purpose? Well, things seemed to have worked out perfectly. The new museum is 50 percent bigger than the old one and is expected to grow later into adjacent space. “He can spread out a little bit,” Nutter said. “Right now we are so crammed tight. He also has things he wants to add to the collection.”

The lease is for three years with an option for more.

In very little time, Dailey was able to locate a facility that would more than double the space that the old museum offered . . . and there was room to grow.

Today, the museum houses an enormous collection of real dinosaur bone and egg fossils, as well as T. Rex and triceratops skull replicas, a flying pterosaur model (with an impressive 14-foot wing span), shark teeth, rocks, minerals, photos and a hundred more things – literally.

The Roynon Museum of Paleontology, now renamed the Roynon Museum of Earth

‘Ye Old New World’ Cont. on Page 18

Family, friends, neighbors, and other supporters, all got busy with plenty of elbow grease to clean, paint, decorate and transform the new facility into a first class museum.

One particularly interesting display is the reproduction of a protoceratops protecting its eggs from a velociraptor when both were caught in a sandstorm and died perfectly preserved.

The City Council will consider:

(i) a long-term space lease agreement which has been negotiated by and between the residents and the owner of El Dorado Mobilehome Park (the City is not be a party to this agreement); and (ii) approval of the Regulatory Agreement and Declaration of Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions for the El Dorado Mobilehome Park between the City and El Dorado Mobilehome Park, which would be a regulatory agreement giving the City the authority to enforce rent and other basic provisions of the long term space lease agreement; and (iii) adoption of proposed new Section 16.16.030(c) to the San Marcos Municipal Code (SMMC). This would exempt the El Dorado Mobilehome Park from Chapter 16.16 and its Rent Review Commission provisions for the term of the long-term space lease agreement, which has been signed by a majority of the El Dorado Mobilehome Park residents.

Typically, a docent at the museum will take you through a sequence of life from the Precambrian to the Pleistocene showing actual fossils. Also the physical events in the earth’s history, such as changing climates, volcanism, plate tectonics, and mass extinctions are brought to focus as to their overall effects on living forms.

Weekday mornings available by appointment. Other times available for private tours and special programs. Please call the museum office for more information regarding prices for student classes, scout badge courses, or private tours and groups. CURRENT HOURS

This museum was created out of Roynon's love and passion for the subjects/objects as it's obvious when you listen to him talking about everything. Awesome and cool a good place to learn about dinosaurs. Learned about the laws governing fossils and the history of his collection. The gift shop sells fossils and rocks to take home as well. Great place to take the kids.

Mr. Roynon was a wonderful and super informative docent! He's very patient with the kids and tries to answer as many questions as possible.

The kids are led through the museum and they're given a chance to look and touch many specimens. At the end of the tour the kids put together their own rock and crystal collection. Plans include a gift shop.

The Roynon Museum: What it Is

The Roynon Museum of Paleontology is curated, owned and operated by paleontologist and retired antiques dealer, Keith Roynon, who began showing his private collection of rocks, fossils, dinosaur eggs, bones and replicas in early 2000. All showings are by appointment and are usually reserved for school groups, homeschooling co-ops, and scout troops, but Mr. Roynon has been known to welcome all curious minds.

The museum itself is a smorgasbord of prehistoric life and geologic history His tours are all hands-on and interactive and questions are always encouraged and answered. How to Take a Tour

You’re going to need to call 442 999-4449 and set up an appointment. The Roynon Museum is geared to groups, so schools and troops get first priority, but Mr. Roynon also hosts birthday parties, and as mentioned, can’t resist interested and engaged visitors with a love for what he collects.

More About Mr. Roynon

Keith Roynon has been fascinated with fossils since he was a kid himself. As a young boy, he collected rocks, shark teeth, and anything he could find that was the least bit geologic. Rumor has it that his missing fingers were lost during some of these expeditions. He also holds a bachelor’s degree in zoology and studied geology at the University of Washington, and he operates his museum as a non-profit organization. More Details

Alaska and Canada. “I was lucky to go with him at one point,” Jeff recalled. “We traveled to Great Bear Lake (in Canada’s Northwest Territories) and from there, (up) the Mackenzie River all the way to the Arctic Ocean. He was very well-read and knew exactly what to bring. There was no extra poundage” on those trips, since they had to carry everything themselves.

“When my mom got Alzheimer’s, that changed their lives,” said Jeff. Appleby had recently moved to Dana Point to care for Eileen, who survives him.

The couple were well-known locally for their philanthropy. Recipients of their many donations include the Escondido Boys & Girls Club, Cal State San Marcos, the California Center for the Arts, Escondido, and the Escondido Rotary Foundation. They also endowed scholarships to the University of San Diego and to the Webb School for Boys in Claremont, which Carlton and Andrew attended. The family sold the TimesAdvocate to the Tribune Company in 1977. Howard

Publications bought it in 1995, merged it with their paper, the Oceanside Blade-Citizen, and renamed it the North County Times. The Times was sold to Lee Enterprises in 2002 and to The San Diego Union-Tribune in 2012, when it ended publication. The Union-Tribune was bought in 2015 by the newly named Tribune Publishing Company. When his father decided to sell the paper and retire, “I think he thought that he wasn’t going to live long” because health problems ran in the family, said Jeff. “He wanted to spend more time with my mom. But he was in good health, and he lived to be 92. It’s kind of amazing.” Private services will be held Dec. 21 at the Applebys’ home in Dana Point. -

DAR Chapter Hears about President Roosevelt’s Life – At the Santa Margarita Chapter Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) meeting recently, Charla Boodry welcomed President Theodore Roosevelt, aka Joe Weigand, who chronicled his life from an asthmatic child through the Presidency. He also clarified the story of how the Teddy Bear came to be; it wasn’t a tied up bear cub that he refused to shoot, but an old bear that had been clubbed and tied up. The “President” was presented with a certificate and honorarium. Boodry also presented HODAR (Husband of DAR) pins to the husbands of five members, with the wives pinning them. The DAR is open to any female eighteen years of age or older who is lineally descended from a patriot who contributed in some way in America’s fight for independence in the Revolutionary War.

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:

STAY YOUNG!

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!
