Volume 45 - No. 52

The streets of Omaha, Nebraska, can be mighty mean streets in the midst of a winter.
Snowdrifts of four, five, six feet high . . . sometimes more; a cold cutting wind and numbing cold that freezes the toes, fingers, nose and any other parts of the body not suitably clothed with warm, winter clothes.
To those who grew up there, you know what it’s like; to those who’ve never experienced a bitter midwestern winter . . . you’re lucky. They’re no fun.
There was a time, back around 1948, where memory recalls a lonely figure of a man, slowly walking the cold streets of Omaha. He had no transportation so if he wanted to go someplace, he walked. He was hunched over . . . almost hunchbacked. He looked much older than he was. This was on a Christmas Eve and

this tired man was on an important mission.
His son, Little Joe, was in the Bishop Clarkson Hospital’s Pediatric Ward. He had some type of painful stomach ailment and they didn’t know what the problem was. His father was bound and determined that even though Joey was in the hospital, he was going to have his Christmas, and his dad was going to be with him.
Omaha is named after the Omaha Indians. There are a lot of Indians in and around Omaha; at least there were back in this time period. Joe and his daddy were Winnebago Indians. In fact, to this day there is a village in Thurston County, Nebraska, that is called Winnebago. Not a very big village . . . as of the 2010 census there were only about 774 residents there. Joey and his dad, however, had
been living down near 10th, 11th, street . . . not far from the mighty (and muddy) Missouri River. This was the area that, back then, was kind of a skid row. Lots of alcohics, lots of down on their luck folks, and a lot of Indians. Today, it has been transformed to a very modern, cosmopolitan shopping center with lots of boutiques and fancy cafes and restaurants. Back then . . . it was pretty much hard scrabble living.
As the old man trudged along he came upon a Christmas Tree lot. They were about to close up for the season and had very little selection of trees left. The old man looked over the trees . . . and at the prices. He chatted with the vendor a bit, told him about his son and that he was en route to the hospital to see him; that he wanted to maybe buy a Christmas tree and put it up in his son’s ward for him and any other patients to enjoy for Christmas. Cold and tired . . . but touched by the old man’s story, the vendor handed the man a tired old

Christmas tree, not much of a tree, really, but it would do.
“I hope your son gets better, Mister. Merry Christmas. The tree is on me. Stay warm.”
The old man thanked the vendor, took the wimpy looking tree and headed on to Bishop Clarkson Hospital. Meanwhile, his son, Little Joe had begun to make some friends on the pediatric wing. Several other kids about his age would laugh, tell stories, and generally got along well.
Every once in awhile, though, Joe would double up in pain. Gone were his flashing smile and bright eyes . . . instead, a powerful grimace, a holding of breath, as if holding his breath might ease the pain. The nurse would come a’running, give him medication to help overcome the pain, usually an injection of some type of pain killer. In time, the pain would subside and Joe would become

just a little boy again ... about 10 years old . . . pretty much the average age of his fellow patients. Once again his smile would flash, once again his eyes would sparkle as he told stories of what it was like back up in Winnebago Village, where he’d run and play, and hunt with his dad. And how they had left Winnebago Village to come to Omaha to try and find work. And how that just didn’t seem to pan out so well. His dad had difficulty finding work and what work he did find was menial and low paying. Still, they were together and were very fond of one another. Joey’s illness was totally unexpected and not a welcome event in what was already a difficult life.
There was no insurance, his dad did not have the funds to pay for medical care ... still, the hospital and staff treated Joey as if he were a millionaire’s son. He got the best of attention and medication available.
Back then, they didn’t have the electronic tools of the medical profession . . . computers, MRI’s, CAT scans, they were all little more than a dream in some young inventor’s mind . . . medical staff had to rely on lab work, symptoms of the patient, medical history, environmental background, family background ... and then they’d try to guess what it was. They’d provide palliative care to kill thepain until they came up with the answers.
Give Us This Day Our Daily Chuckle This week, a compendium of wit, wisdom and neat stuff you can tell at parties. Enjoy! The Christmas Tradition Explained
When four of Santa's elves got sick, the trainee elves did not produce toys as fast as the regular ones, and Santa began to feel the Pre-Christmas pressure. Then Mrs. Claus told Santa her Mother was coming to visit, which stressed Santa even more.
When he went to harness the reindeer, he found that three of them were about to give birth and two others had jumped the fence and were out, Heaven knows where. Then when he began to load the sleigh, one of the floorboards cracked, the toy bag fell to the ground and all the toys
Sometimes the answers never came.
The nurses had fallen in love with little Joey. Who could blame them? When he wasn’t hurting he was an absolute delight. Great sense of humor, that effervescent smile . . . and a bouncy, joyous personality that made you want to be around him.
One patient in particular struck up a relationship with Joey. Long into the night they would talk about their lives, their dreams, their hopes, their goals in life, their families. They got to know each other very, very well. The other patient had his parents come in to visit regularly and this, being Christmas Eve, they came bearing presents. They weren’t a wealthy family, middle class, middle income ... but they had a lot of warmth ... and enough money to make ends meet and a little left over to buy gifts. They had met Joey and were taken with him, as was everyone who met him. When they visited this time, they bought two wrapped presents, just for Joey, as well as presents for their son. It was about 8pm when Joey’s dad arrived, carrying his scraggly Christmas tree.
When Joey saw his dad his eyes flashed as never before, his smile expanded by about 200%, and he reached out to embrace his dad. Dad, not being the type to show emotion (it was not the Indian way) was clearly touched by this
Frustrated, Santa went in the house for a cup of apple cider and a shot of rum. When he went to the cupboard, he discovered the elves had drunk all the cider and hidden the liquor.
In his frustration, he accidentally dropped the cider jug, and it broke into hundreds of little glass pieces all over the kitchen floor.
He went to get the broom and found the mice had eaten all the straw off the end of the broom. Just then the doorbell rang, and an irritated Santa marched to the door, yanked it open, and there stood a little angel with a great big Christmas tree.
The angel said very cheerfully, 'Merry Christmas, Santa. Isn't this a lovely day? I have a beautiful tree for you. Where would you like me to stick it?' And so began the tradition of the little angel on top of the Christmas tree. Not a lot of people know this. In the Classroom

warm welcome and embraced his son with a gentle smile and, if you looked carefully, with a build-up of tears in his eyes.
Joey and his dad huddled together and talked about their neighbors down on skid row ... about family back in Winnebago Village, about happier times, about what great things they were going to accomplish together once Joey was well and was discharged from the hospital. Now and then Joey would burst out in laughter . . . and even his somewhat stoic dad would chuckle. It was a warming sight, seeing this father and son combination, so happy on Christmas Eve . . . so at peace with the world.
The nurses had set up the scraggly Christmas tree next to Joey’s bed. They scurried around the hospital and tracked down some colored paper, tin foil, and other items left over from Halloween and Thanksgiving celebrations within the hospital ... they managed to make that scraggly Christmas tree look halfway presentable.
Joey’s new found close pal and fellow patient, his parents, Joey’s dad, the other patients, the nursing and support staff, all managed to come together and have a very nice Christmas Eve together. Presents were opened, parents of the several patients got to meet and know each other, promises were made to get together once the kids were well and out of the hospital and how they were surely destined to be friends forever.

Personally I am always ready to learn, but I do not always like being taught. – Winston Churchill The best part of being an older biker babe is that you don’t have to pull your shirt up quite so far to show your boobs.
Things like that tend to happend on Christmas Eve (and then often forgotten after the holidays). Time has a habit of sometimes passing too quicky and time had come for visitors to leave.
The parting of Joe and his dad was particularly poignant because neither knew when his dad would be able to get back to the hospital for another visit; they hoped it wouldn’t be long and maybe next time dad came it would be collect a healthy Joe and leave the hospital for good. One can always hope.
Before long the pediatric ward was empty of visitors and the patients themselves, though tired from a long and enjoyable day (aside from those pesky lab tests, x-rays, and other routines), managed to squeeze in a few more hours of conversation. In time, the ward was quiet as, one by one, the patients would close their eyes and drift off to sleep.
Over the next several days Little Joe and his new pal would spendhours together . . . talking. Every day they learned something new about each other ... about their families . . . their schools . . . they were bonding. They had become great pals and the promise was that, after their hospital stay was over, they would stay in touch and

do exciting things together ... explore the world, explore their dreams and maybe work together to accomplish mutual goals. It was rapidly becoming a lifetime friendship, the type of friendshp we all hope for but which comes around all too seldom.
The downside, however, was that Little Joe had his attacks of stomach pain more and more often and it would take longer and longer for the pain-killing medicine to take effect and give him temporary peace. Little Joe’s pal saw all this and it hurt him. You know how it is when you see someone you really care for and they are hurting? And there’s nothing you can do to ease the pain? Remember that feeling of frustration and hopelessness when you see a close friend suffering?
That’s what Little Joey’s pal felt daily . . . and, before long, it seemed, hourly.
In today’s world, with all the modern technical gadgetry, the MRI’s, the CAT scans, Joey’s problems would likely have been diagnosed and treated within a hour or two. But this was back in 1948. Almost medieval medicine, compared to today. One evening, several days after Christmas, Little Joe had had one of his better days. They all managed to get together and talk and laugh again.

They still had the scraggly Christmas tree standing next to Joey’s bed . . . but it was probably about time to throw it out as it was beginning to shed its needles.
Still, while it was there, it helped, a little bit, to extend the Christmas Eve and Christmas Day joy and happy memories. Again, time slipped by and sleepy eyes succumbed to the call of blessed sleep. The nurses made their rounds and checked in to make sure all their young patients had the proper medication, were properly tucked in for the night, and were prepared for a good, restful night’s sleep.

Soroptimist to Hold Annual Human Trafficking Awareness Event/Walk – The Vista and North County Inland Chapter of Soroptimist International invites citizens in North San Diego County to attend the 10th Annual Human Trafficking Awareness Day Walk, to be held on Saturday, January 16, from 1pm to 2pm, in downtown Vista. Club members will gather at Vista’s Wave Waterpark (101 Wave Drive), and commence the Walk at 1pm through downtown Vista and back. “We’ll have Trafficking Awareness signs for all participants, plus we have designed commemorative Trafficking Awareness T-shirts that we will make available to all walkers for free, although we request a donation of $10. We are also seeking sponsorships for the tee shirts for donations of $100 each, to have your logo printed on the back,” said Walk coordinator Runa Gunnars. Unlike
previous years, there will be no speakers. However, the Club is adding an optional component where some members and supporters will meet earlier at the nearby Vista Transit Station, to catch the 10:56am Sprinter train eastbound to Escondido Transit Center and back. “We plan to board the train wearing our Trafficking Awareness T-shirts and meet up with additional walkers at the Escondido and San Marcos stations, returning to Vista via the westbound Sprinter that departs Escondido at 12:03pm, stops at the San Marcos Civic Center station at 12:14pm, and arrives back at the Vista Transit Station at 12:30pm,” explained Soroptimist member Jackie Piro Huyck. The Club recently changed its name from Soroptimist International of Vista to add “and North County Inland” because it also has members from the surrounding towns of San Marcos and Escondido.

between Little Joe and a host of people on that pediatric floor.
“It’s not fair,” he sobbed. “He was such a special kid. We were pals . . . . we were gonna do things together when we got out of the hospital . . . it ain’t fair ..” and his voice trailed off but the sobbing continued.
But the memory of Little Joe did. This all happened about 67 years ago.

This was a memorable Christmas season . . . one in which the gift of eternal friendship had developed
Unfortunately, “eternity” didn’t last long.
Little Joe’s fellow patient, the one with whom he had planned a lifetime friendship ... with whom he would have so many adventures together? That was me.
The following morning, Little Joe’s pal looked over at Joe’s bed and saw that not only was he not there but his bed had been made, the Christmas Tree was gone and his bed and immediate area was .. bare. A nurse walked by and he asked the nurse where Little Joe was.
The nurse, aware of the close bond that had been built between Little Joe and his pal, stopped by his bed, put her hand on his shoulder and said . . . “I’m so sorry to tell you this . . . but Little Joey passed away last night.”
Little Joey’s pal thought he saw tears in the nurse’s eyes. He was correct. The entire nursing and medical staff had taken a liking to Little Joe and his radiant smile and infectious personality. The patients, too, had adopted him as a close friend ... pals forever.

On Sunday, December 20th, at about 1am, police responded to the 2800 block of Bear Valley Pkwy for a large fight (near the intersection of Bear Valley Pkwy and Canyon Dr). Multiple police units responded due to reports there were at least 2 dozen people fighting. The callers indicated many of the people involved in the fight were armed with various weapons. No firearms were involved. During the fight, a 20 year old male was stabbed at least one time. The victim also suffered other injuries and was transported to the Palomar Medical Center. The injuries were considered lifethreatening.
Dozens of people were seen leaving the area of the crime when police arrived. Police spoke with several witnesses, but believe a number of other individuals witnessed the crime and may have helpful information.

On Wednesday, December 23rd, officers from the City of Carlsbad Police Department learned a felony warrant suspect was staying in a local motel room located in the 700 block of Raintree Dr. The officers contacted two individuals inside the motel room, one of whom had a felony warrant for transportation of narcotics. The suspect, Glenn Snider, a 35 yearold transient from Riverside County, was taken into custody without incident. Further investigation by Officers Adam Bentley and Cody Green resulted in the discovery of dozens of pieces of mail that appeared to have been stolen from residents from the cities of Encinitas, Oceanside, and San Marcos. Among the items of mail, officers discovered approximately twenty checks totaling more than $55,000 issued by the Semper Fi Fund that were addressed to veterans and service providers across the country. The investigation resulted in the seizure of several tools and pieces

$50 Million Escondido Library Bond Measure Survey
Who is paying for the survey about a possible $50 million bond measure to expand the Escondido Library? How much? I have received over a dozen calls. I have asked to be put on a Do-Not-Call list several times. I have answered the survey TWICE, for first time to find out who was behind these annoying telemarketing calls. Sometimes they asked for a person who not longer lives here. If I am not that person, they just hang up! (Apparently just to call back AGAIN and AGAIN and AGAIN . . . . . ) And the calls keep coming!

The Survey is initially deceptive, from the Caller ID to the first vague questions. It takes about 3 minutes to find out what is the topic.
Arrested with Snider was Alexis Pierce, 26 years old, also from Riverside County. Snider and Pierce were booked into Vista Detention Facility on multiple felony charges, including: possession of the identifying information of ten or more people, possession of altered credit cards, possession of equipment used to alter credit cards, possession of stolen property, possession of burglary tools, conspiracy, and possession of methamphetamine.
On the last call, I asked who was conducting the survey. I was told Validity Research. (Is the money going to these guys from Canada? http://validityresearch.com/) I asked why their caller ID didn’t say that, and he said the call were made using the internet. (Why not just insert “Validity Research” in the Caller ID field?) I asked who was paying for that, and I was told they did not have that information.
The survey takes about 15 to 20 minutes. The bond measures language is read 3 times during the course of the survey. Many questions are designed to “educate” (meaning propagandize) and then support is measured again to see if attitudes change.

new fund that will support various crime prevention programs across San Diego County. The San Diego County Safe Communities Fund will support community partners in an effort to prevent crime through a variety of programs. Potential beneficiaries of the fund include non-profit organizations that assist prisoner re-entry, the homeless, at-risk youth, veterans, domestic violence, and human trafficking victims, as well as addiction and neighborhood safety programs. “Feeling safe in your home, at work and at school is a critical component of a good quality of life,” DA Dumanis said. “While the core mission of the DA’s Office is criminal prosecution, crime prevention is also an important part of what we do. As the name implies, this fund will help keep neighborhoods safer across the county.” The Safe Communities Fund will support the work of the DA’s Office in prosecuting criminals through the investment in public safety initiatives. The Safe Communities Fund will operate under the umbrella of The San Diego Foundation. An advisory committee will disperse the monies to non-profit organizations in the county. All donations are tax deductible. Donations are now being accepted. “Anyone looking for a great way to give back to the community this holiday season and support public safety should consider donating to the San Diego County Safe Communities Fund,” DA Dumanis said.

Jesus, Rule Breaker, Rebel
Each Christmas we ponder the miraculous Virgin Birth of Jesus of Nazareth. But reflecting on his death, occurring some 33 years after, offers deeper insight. Scientists studying the Shroud of Turin have discovered that its blood stains are genetically female, while its features are phenotypically male. The victim under that shroud suffered a rare disease called de la Chapelle Syndrome. The Sudarium of Oviedo that was used as a facial sweat cloth after his crucifixion bore the same XX evidence. And both articles have type AB blood, suggesting that these were used on the same victim some 2000 thousand years ago.
Bear in mind, though, that such data do not prove the articles were Jesus's burial cloths, or that he rose from the dead. It's Church dogma that Jesus was born of a virgin, but if so,

Celebrating Good Citizens
Looking back on 2015, our office has been extremely busy! Our work can be both challenging, yet rewarding.
Throughout this region, from Escondido and San Marcos to Temecula, there are outstanding citizens, businesses and community organizations that have made a meaningful difference. Over the year, my role in the State Assembly has allowed me to encourage and recognize many outstanding role models from our awesome 75th Assembly district, including:
240 exemplary educators who have demonstrated a strong commitment to preparing students for success in college, vocational training and in life 2,450 students, scouts and interns who attained academic, athletic, arts and other achievements. 265 businesses, innovators and job creators who combined their passion to provide great products and services with a desire to give back, many of whom were recognized at grand openings, ribbon cut-
tings or as my “Business of the Month”. 740 citizens, organizations, clubs, clergy and volunteers who inspire and serve others contributing considerable talents and resources to strengthen our communities. 600 First Responders, public safety officials, law enforcement professionals and military who were recognized for going above and beyond in their service to our neighborhoods and our country. As you can see, we have a great number of amazing people in our district who work each day to reach their dreams, help others and enhance our communities' quality of life.
Along with my best wishes for a magical New Year, I want to thank you, the wonderful residents of the 75th Assembly District, for the honor and privilege of serving as your representative in the State Assembly. I am grateful for your confidence and trust and look forward to continuing to work on your behalf.

Healthy food consisted of anything edible. Cooking outside was called camping.
Seaweed was not a recognized food. 'Kebab' was not even a word, never mind a food.
Sugar enjoyed a good press in those days, and was regarded as being white gold.
Prunes were medicinal. still are.
Pineapples came in chunks in a tin; we had only ever seen a picture of a real one. Water came out of the tap. If someone had suggested bottling it and charging more than gasoline for it, they would have become a laughing stock. Diplomacy
I have a friend who is a master of diplomacy.
I first witnessed his ability to use tact, even under difficult circumstances. Let me give you an example.
This was back when he was doing some part-time work in a grocery supermarket.
A man walked into the produce department and wanted to buy a half head of lettuce. He told the guy they only sold lettuce by the head. The man was insistent that he ask the manager. Walking into the back room, he said to the manager, "Some idiot wants to buy a half-head of lettuce." As he finished his statement the man was standing right behind him.
And that's when he said ... "And this kindly gentleman offered to buy the other half!" Well, who wouldn't have been impressed by that feat of diplomacy? The man went away happy, as was the manager.
"That was brilliant," said the manager. "Where are you from, son?" "Texas,"said the young fella.
"Well, why'd you leave Texas," the manager asked. "Sir, there's nothing but whores and football players there." "Really!" said the manager. "My wife is from Texas."
"Get out outta here!" the fella
said, "Who'd she play for?" Golf Outing
One day out on the golf course, a golfer accidentally overturned his golf cart. A very attractive woman, who lived in a villa on the golf course, heard the noise, came out onto her balcony and called out to him, “Hey, are you okay?”
Historically Speaking by Tom Morrow
“I'm fine, thanks," he replied.
"You look frazzled,” the woman said, “come up to my villa for a drink and I will help you get the cart up afterwards."
"That's mighty nice of you," he answered, “but I don't think my wife would like that."
"Oh, come on," the woman, a gorgeous brunette in a sexy bikini, insisted. “I can see you've cut your head. It could be serious. Let me take care of that right away. I'm a nurse.” She was very persuasive....and he was weak. "Well okay," he agreed, and added, "but my wife won't like it."
After she bandaged his wound, she gave him a most welcome brandy. They talked a little about golf and he discovered she was an avid golfer with a four handicap. When he confessed to a weakness in his putting, she gave him a putting lesson holding him close and intimately as she did so. Finally he confessed, "I feel a lot better now, but I had better get going. I know my wife is going to be really upset with me being here with you." "Don't be silly!” the woman said with a smile, “she won't know anything. By the way, where is she?" "Under the cart," he replied. 50. 49. 48. 47. 46. 45. 44. 43. 42. 41. 40. 39. 38. 37. 36. 35. 34. 33. 32. 31. 30. 29. 28. 27.

The Cook Who Was An Unlikely Hero
The under-fire actions of a lowranking Navy cook during the attack on Pearl Harbor made the sailor one of the first Americans to be decorated for bravery during World War II.
What adds interest to the actions of “Dorey” Miller, a third-class petty officer, was that he was the first AfricanAmerican to be so recognized. As a result, his heroism rallied the Black communities across America to give more support to the war effort. Miller was a cook aboard the USS West Virginia. When the attack on Pearl Harbor began, he immediately reported to his battle station, only to discover

a torpedo had destroyed it.
The young petty officer ran into an officer, who told him to go to the bridge and aid the ship's Captain Mervyn Bennion, who had been hit by shrapnel.
Miller was then ordered to load two Browning .50 caliber antiaircraft machine guns in the aft part of the battleship. He wasn't familiar with the machine gun, but two accompanying officers told him what to do. Miller fired the gun until he ran out of ammunition, then he was ordered to help carry the Captain up to the navigation bridge out of the thick oily smoke generated by the many fires on and around the ship. When the attack finally subsided, Miller was ordered to help move injured sailors through oil and water, thereby "unquestionably saving the lives of a number of people who might otherwise have been lost.” The West Virginia sank to the harbor bottom as her crew— including Miller—abandoned ship.
Two weeks later, the Navy released a list of commendations. Among them was a single notation for an “unnamed Negro.” The NAACP asked President Franklin D. Roosevelt to determine the name of the sailor and award him the Distinguished Service Cross, at that time the secondhighest combat honor. The Navy Board of Awards in Washington D. C., revealed the name of the “unknown Negro” sailor was Third Class Petty Officer "Doris Miller." The Pittsburgh Courier initiated a write-in campaign to send Miller to the Naval Academy.
His combat recognition made him one of the first heroes of World War II. He was commended by Secretary of the Navy Frank Knox, and personally recognized by Fleet Admiral Chester W. Nimitz aboard the aircraft carrier USS Enterprise. Nimitz presented Miller with the Navy Cross, the third-highest award for gallantry during combat the Navy awarded at the time. Today the Navy Cross is the second-highest honor for the Navy and Marines. Miller was promoted to Mess Attendant First Class on June 1, 1942. The Pittsburgh Courier continued to push to return Miller to the U.S. for a war bond tour, but he already was back in the country doing just that. After training in Hawaii, Miller was assigned to the USS

That makes five years in a row. ••••• After a tiring day, a commuter settled down in her seat and closed her eyes. As the train rolled out of the station, the guy sitting next to her pulled out his cell phone and started talking in a loud voice: "Hi sweetheart. It's Eric. I'm on the train. Yes, I know it's the six thirty and not the four thirty, but I had a long meeting." "No, honey, not with that blonde from the accounts office. With the boss. No sweetheart, you're the only one in my life. Yes, I'm sure, cross my heart."
Fifteen minutes later, he was still talking loudly, when the young woman sitting next to him had enough and leaned over and said into the phone, "Eric, turn that phone off and come back to bed." Eric doesn't use his cell phone in public any longer.

Frank Whitton epitomizes the idea of public service. A retired Marine and Vietnam veteran, Whitton has served the City of Carlsbad since moving to the city in 1996. On a larger scale, Whitton has been devoted to community and country for his entire adult life. His most recent contribution to the city was creating the Carlsbad Fire Department Foundation, which has raised almost $100,000 in donations in less than a year. The foundation’s purpose is to support Carlsbad’s firefighters by enhancing fire and rescue services, and raise funds to help pay for supplementary equipment, communication gear and other items. “Our first major purchase was five quick connectors for the hydraulic hoses that run the Jaws of Life,” he said. The foundation also awards scholarships to firefighters’ dependents to help them pursue their vocational or collegiate careers.

After retiring in 1978, he served as associate dean of the S.D. Community College District, directing two schools at the Naval Training Center. After leaving there, he continued to assist veterans by helping to establish the Service Disabled Veteran Owned Business Network, a national group that helps disabled veterans Frank Whitton and Taffy Cannon succeed in business.

Enhanced awareness of locally sourced foods is helping to reinvigorate small family farming operations. This is especially important in San Diego County where ping on I-5.

administrator who testified Fragozo created a hostile work environment worse than the mean streets of East Los Angeles where Rankins-Ibarra grew up.
The superintendent said he navigated past drug-dealing gangs and violence by focusing on his studies, but has been unable to cope with Fragozo. Rankins-Ibarra and trustees Paulette Donnellon and Zesty Harper — who have also testified in the hearing — said Fragozo has harassed administrators with bullying text messages, emails, finger-pointing antics and namecalling. The superintendent has said the behavior has caused him to fear for his life.
Fragozo has said that the allegations are completely false.
Donnellon testified before Superior Court Judge Richard Whitney on Wednesday that Fragozo’s hostile behavior has escalated since earlier this year when education consultant WestEd issued a critical report analyzing the district’s English Learner program. She said Fragozo began to demand that changes be made in the program.
Three other district executives joined Rankins-Ibarra in the complaint. The temporary restraining order is effective until the judge issues a ruling, which may come in midJanuary.

Rhiannon is pet of the week at your Rancho Coastal Humane Society. She’s an 8 month old, 7 pound, Medium Hair Tabby kitten. Rhiannon was abandoned in a wire crate with several other cats. She received the care she needed then was transferred to Rancho Coastal Humane Society through the FOCAS program. Now she’s eager to find her new home. Rhiannon loves cats, kids, and other companion animals.
The $100 adoption fee for Rhiannon includes medical exam, vaccinations, spay and registered microchip. For more information call 760753-6413, visit Rancho Coastal Humane Society at 389 Requeza Street in Encinitas, or log on to SDpets.org.
Birdie, a 2-year-old Chihuahua/Rat Terrier mix, is looking for a new best friend. This sweet girl entered our care as a stray and while we were not able to locate her previous family, Birdie is hoping to find a new home for the holidays. She is a shy dog, but is learning to make new friends and has had a lot of fun in her playgroup with other dogs. Birdie loves to go on walks and is great on a leash. She is house-trained and gets along well with other dogs. Her ideal family is one that will take her out for a walk around the neighborhood, and then settle in for the evening with snuggles on the couch. Birdie is very fearful of men at the moment, but would be the perfect lap dog for a woman looking for a little lady to love! Birdie is available for adoption at the San Diego Humane Society’s Escondido Campus at 3450 East Valley Parkway. To learn more about making her part of your family, please call (760) 888-2275 or visit sdhumane.org.
Pastor Richard Huls, Retired Well, It Is Over?
Well, it is over. Another Christmas. It is time to think about disposing of the tree, taking the outside lights and decorations down, exchanging that gift, which was too small or large, or unwanted. The house, hopefully, will return to normal. And, of course, there will be the accounting with credit cards, which, for the most part, covered most purchases. With all of this, we can say, “Christmas is over, at least for another year.” Or is it? It is really just the beginning with putting together
That is what happened two thousand years ago when Jesus was born. There were some moments when it was over such as when the shepherds saw and heard angels and then the Christ Child, and the Magi, after a long journey, found the child Jesus and presented their gifts. They each did their thing and then it was over. Nothing else is recorded of their experiences.
For Jesus, however, it was just the beginning – a fulfillment of Biblical promises, a journey of uncertain responses, death on a cross, and then the beginning of hope and eternal life for all mankind in His resurrection. No, it is not over! To celebrate a birth is exciting, but a sharing in a life is always more. It is and can be, a New Year of experiences, a new beginning of a journey of faith with the ONE who gave us our first Christmas, which is never over.

Did you know t h a t Christmas trees cause about 200 fires annually that result in deaths, injuries and millions of dollars in property damage? EDCO customers can place their tree curbside on their regular collection day during the two weeks after Christmas, Dec. 26 through Jan. 12, at no extra charge.

You may find these scientific findings most disturbing. But remember, after all, no one can prove or disprove with laboratory equipment that Jesus was raised from the dead, upon which all Christian doctrine depends. 1 Cor 15:14-17 Reason, logic, and science can take us only so far, where we must then make a leap of faith,
and grope with blind belief into the mysterious unknown, for who else offered us eternal life? Or as Shakespeare expressed in Hamlet, Act 1, Scene 5, where Hamlet insists that he met and conversed with his father's ghost: "There are more

Escondido Public Library Launches 1 GBPS Broadband Internet - Escondido Public Library has upgraded bandwidth for its public computers to run at 1 gbps (gigabit per second), thanks to a statewide initiative aimed at connecting public libraries to the California Research and Education Network (CalREN), a 3,800 mile fiber-based high-speed broadband network. This advancement in broadband access was made possible with the award of a $30,000 grant from the California State Library, and connection through The Corporation for Education Network Initiatives in California (CENIC). Support was also received from the Califa Library Group, the Southern California Library Cooperative (SCLC) as project aggregators, and Escondido Public Libraryâ€™s Board of Trustees. This funding enabled Escondido Public Library to procure the necessary equipment to upgrade

Our home Cox bill came last week. It was $100 higher than usual, from $150 to $250, so we called to find out why. “Your promotional rates just expired,” they said. “After six years, our promo rates just now expired?” we asked. “Yep,” they said. We told them that we needed to get it back down to $150 so they agreed to change our plan to fit our budget. That night we were only able to watch local TV and PBS. The next day we called around and found that Dish had an $89 (tax included) entertainment package good for two years with content and features far better than anything we had from Cox. Then we called AT&T and got a great price on a telephone land line. Next we called Cox to reconfigure our “bundle.” We told them to

its infrastructure for public internet bandwidth to make the significant leap from 50 mbps to 1 gbps.
As State Librarian of California, Greg Lucas, commented “Better bandwidth allows public libraries to truly be community information hubs, connecting the more than 21 million Californians with library cards to the essential online resources necessary for 21st Century digital citizenship.” This improvement in bandwidth allows Escondido Public Library to provide a highquality online experience for users, enabling them to fully participate in recreational, educational, and occupational opportunities.

"Joyous New Year" is Theme of Christian Women's Club Meeting - The San Marcos–Vista Christian Women's Club luncheon will be on Monday, January 18, at 11:30am, at Broken Yolk Café, 101 S. Las Posas Rd, San Marcos. Cost of the luncheon is $18.00. The speaker "Looking forward to the New Year" is Pamela Sheldon, an inspirational and motivational speaker from San Marcos. She will share how we can fill up the vase with more than just stuff. Entertainment will be some very beautiful, refreshing and soulful music, by a special singer, Kayla; music to fill our hearts with "Love throughout the New Year." A special
cancel the $150 entertainment package and the $29 phone land line. We would keep the Internet but reduce it from 50Mbps ($71) to 5Mbps ($34). They went into a huddle and came back with an offer to essentially restore our old “bundle” at the old price. “Too late,” we said, “We’ve already found a better deal.” They went back into the huddle and returned with a $37 bundle that included the Internet and phone. We took it. The bottom line is that we were able to get a better entertainment package from Dish and cheaper phone and Internet package from Cox for $125/mo, a savings of $125/mo. We reduced our Internet speed from 50 to 5Mbps, an unnoticeable difference. It took just four hours of paying attention to get it done and for an annual savings of $1500 it was worth it. Only a few years ago we saved a bunch of money by switching to Cox and dumping AT&T and Dish. Now we are going back to Dish. In two years when our promo rates expire with Dish, what do you bet that we’ll be talking to Cox and AT&T again? That’s the way it works.
designed to discourage us from even trying. They’re counting on it.
Two years ago AT&T sales reps promised us significant savings on our business phones by switching to a new plan. When the new plan cost us nearly $100 a month more than the old plan, we asked for our old plan back. “No can do,” said AT&T. “The old plan is no longer available.” While they admitted that we had been duped into leaving our “grandfathered” position in the old plan by false promises, they claimed there was nothing they could do. It took a year, a lot of phone calls, emails and letters and finally an escalation to AT&T’s president’s office but we finally got our old plan back and
a $1200 credit.
The take-away here is that the companies we pay to provide things like the newspaper, sewer, water, power, Internet and TV are motivated to keep costs down and revenues up. It matters not whether they are Governments, monopolies or competitive businesses; the only person looking after your interests is you. You might be surprised at the kind of payoff you can get by just paying attention and following through. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from The Computer Factory, Nome, Julian, Raunel, Tom and Paul.

'In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin.
But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American and nothing but an American ... There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag ...

The Paper • Page 16 • December 31, 2015
Escondido, CA—In a 2002 issue of Neurosurgical Focus, a peerreviewed article was published by a Dr. Michael D. Martin, MD et al. in which the third sentence states: “The disc itself is active tissue that contains significant mechanisms for self-repair.” That article was published by a neurosurgeon and written directly for neurosurgeons.
“The Disc Itself Is Active Tissue...”
So what does that really mean to us? It tells us that the disc itself does have a God-given ability to heal and repair if provided the proper mechanisms for self-healing. There is a specific mechanism inherent in each of the spinal discs called the “pump mechanism of disc nutri-tion” (see Fig 1). When this mechanism is not working properly, the spinal discs will begin to die causing bulges, herniations, and eventually spinal stenosis.
The spinal disc is one of the very few tissues in the body that does not have a direct blood supply for circulation. The only way that the disc gets the circulation of water, oxygen and nutrients for self-repair is via this specific disc pump mechanism. What happens when you decrease cir-culation in any type of tissue, whether it be animal tissue, plant tissue or human tissue? Exactly, it begins to become weak and begins to degenerate.
Symptoms Are NOT The Problem
Now the symptoms of pain, numbness,
brown leaves are the plant’s problem? Of course not, the leaves turning brown is just a condition that is telling you that there is something wrong with the plant. The plant is unhealthy and needs water and nutrients. You could spray paint the leaves green but it just covers up the condition. The underlying problem still exists and will continue to produce brown leaves until you fix the actual problem. and tingling that most experience with bulging, herniated or degenerative discs are NOT the problem. The definition of a symptom: “something that indicates the existence of something else.” It is just like the dashboard of your car telling you that something is wrong (brake lights out, engine needs checked, overheating, etc.) Those lights that appear in your car dash are NOT the problem. You can remove the lights surgically or put a piece of duct tape over the lights but the problem will NOT be fixed...the problem is still present. Let’s take a look at a plant for example...if the leaves on a plant begin to turn brown, would you say that the
extent of your disc damage for only $70. This examination will consist of a detailed neurological evaluation, extensive orthopedic testing, and a detailed analysis of the findings of your evaluation. He will sit down with you and go over your condition with you in complete detail. You will know exactly what is causing all your pain (or other symptoms).
In your spine, when the pump mechanism of disc nutrition fails, the disc will begin to de-generate and become weak. This weakness in the disc is what produces the bulging, herniated, and degenerative discs.
The treatment that is provided at Dr. Heilman’s Spine and Neuropathy Care Center in Escondido is revolutionary and is specifically designed to artificially re-create the pump mechanism in the discs which allows the spinal discs to heal and repair. The best part of the treatment is that it uses no drugs, no injections, and no surgery. Plus it’s painless and many patients relax and fall asleep while undergoing the treatment. The amount of treatment needed to allow the discs to heal and repair varies from person to person and can only be determined after a detailed neurological and orthopedic evaluation. We do NOT accept everyone for treatment and will let you know if we can accept your case for treatment.
Dr. Stephen Heilman, DC at the Spine and Neuropathy Care Center in Escondido, CA will do a spinal disc severity examination to determine the
Dr. Stephen Heilman, DC
Dr. Heilman will be offering this spinal disc severity examination from now until Thursday, January 14, 2016.
