Volume 44- No. 25

So now, Congress had passed the law and President Abraham Lincoln had signed it.
It started out as a lie.
By our government.
The stage was set.
Imagine that. A government that was less than honest with its people.
Now all that was to be done was to entice people to move into this great paradise. At least, that’s how it would be portrayed.
Back in the late 1800’s, the government had a problem. It had a lot of unclaimed federal land, much of it west of the Mississippi, a great deal of it in a territory we now know as Montana.
Well! That just wouldn’t do! The government wanted that land occupied by white settlers. Just one of the benefits of that would be to erase the land claims by Blackfeet, Gros Ventre, Sioux, Crow and other native peoples. There wasn’t much there. In the northern third of the territory, about a 100 miles south of the Canadian border and westward as far as the Rockies, you found about 26 million acres of land. Lots of shortgrass prairie and sagebrush.
One of the railroad barons of the time, James J. Hill, founder of the Great Northern Railway, also wanted that land occupied by customers who would need materials such as farming implements, horse tack, household good, seed grain, any number of things, all of which would need to be shipped in. By train. Eventually, the trains would also carry wheat in the opposite direction. The railroad would make money, coming and going.
Say . . . what if the Great Northern Railway got together with Congress and came up The Paper - 760.747.7119
with a scam . . er, plan, to settle the area? Both parties would benefit. Both parties could fund multimillion dollar advertising and propaganda campaigns to entice folk to move into the area. Wouldn’t that be just ducky?
And so it was done. A conspiracy of sorts was hatched, by Congress, by Mr. Hill, and others in the business of generating commerce, even if it needed a bit of a little white lie here and there. Or maybe more than a bit.
Congress was persuaded to pass a law in 1862 that would change the face of our nation . . . and of that barren territory that we know today as the state of Montana. That law was The Free Homestead Act
This law entitled anyone who filed to a quarter-section of land (160 acres) provided they lived on the land for five years. Otherwise, after living on the land for six months, homesteaders could choose to buy it outright for $1.25 per acre. Each homesteader was also assessed a $10.00 filing fee. Several hundred miles east of Montana, where the average rainfall is much higher, 160 acres was plenty of land to support a family and produce an abundance of crops. But in Montana, especially in eastern Montana there was, and is, an arid climate, crops do not grow well without irrigation. On high desert-like plateaus, it can be difficult to find water for irrigation.
The trumpet call was sounded of “Free land! Opportunity! A future!” Congress and the Great Northern Railway spent millions of dollars in assuring ambitious Americans that this Homestead Act would allow you practically free land, enough to feed your family. But, the land wasn’t quite free . . . and it was far from enough. Farming and ranching was to become a boom or bust situation . . . and far more busting than booming. A pamphlet issued in 1912 by the Great Northern Railway, titled "Montana Free Homestead Land," bragged that the state's climate was healthful, the winters "not severe because of the dry air," and the yields of winter wheat "phenomenal." Act now, urged the pamphlet. If you want a piece of this bounteous giveaway, it said, "you had better start for Montana at once."
The ad campaigns worked.
Frontier fact: Between 1880 and 1890, the population of Montana grew from 39,000 to 143,000. Montana would soon become the most homesteaded state in America.
For as little as $22.50, a homesteader could rent a freight car to bring his family and all

their belongings from Saint Paul to eastern Montana.
Though their numbers were initially few, and their lives were unquestionably difficult, many of Montana’s first generation of homesteaders clearly recognized that land was the key to stakeholdership in the great American dream. In numerous letters to friends and family back East their optimism and confidence was unmistakable. “I think I have as good a stock farm as there is anywhere,” wrote Joseph Bumby from Silver Star, Montana, in May of 1871. “It is a beautiful place here in pleasant weather, thousands of acres of thick, green, luxuriant bunch grass . . . all around you with the thickly wooded snow capped mountains in the distance . . . Sometimes I get almost discouraged, here all alone, camping out amongst the wild beasts, without any fence around my grain, at present . . . I have more to do than one person can attend to . . . but I am in strong hopes of making a good farm here . . .”

Then, hypnotized by the powerful sway of the wellfinanced propaganda machine, homesteaders flooded into Montana. Dozens of new boomtowns appeared out of thin, dry air, like mirages on the rolling plains. People came from Minnesota, from Illinois, from Scotland, from Norway, and from points in between to accept the dare, tossing down their labor, their youth, and their hopes. They were homesteaders. Some of the early homesteaders struck it rich. They found the easily farmable places, places with plenty of water access, plenty of trees, prairie grasses for grazing, and prairies ripe for plowing and planting. Some of the latter day immigrants often found mighty slim pickin’s.
Soon, northern Montana saw an increase in settlers . . . most of the easily farmable places having already been taken. These settlers, just as Big Ol’ Jim Hill had planned, followed the railroad, which had completed it’s tracks in 1893.
words out of you.”
Coolidge: “You lose.”
Lewis Morris: “There’s a conspiracy against me. A conspiracy of silence. But what can one do?”
In 1909 Congress updated the original Homestead Act, again in 1912 and 1916, which cut back the residential requirements to three years instead of five and raised the acreage granted to 320 or 640 for a cattle operation. These new amendments, coupled with outright lies by the railroad and other scheming merchants about the potential, drew trusting immigrants. They would sadly learn, within a few short but difficult years, that this increased acreage was still insufficient to earn a living. Congress also passed the Desert Land Act. The idea behind the Desert Land Act was to "reclaim" some western lands not considered suitable for settlement. Homestead life was anything but easy. Many newcomers erected sod houses constructed from grassy slabs of topsoil. Others built cramped, one-room shanties out of rough-cut lumber, covering them in tarpaper, and insulating them with dirty rags and discarded newspapers. Mice, snakes, and grasshoppers were a constant torment.

With these crude accommodations, homesteaders faced the blistering heat, choking dust storms, and subzero cold of Montana’s often-inhospitable plains. Isolation on this harsh and forlorn landscape often took its toll. “I have stood in the doorway of our shack, with my heart full of sadness and loneliness, and listened to the wind,” wrote Sue Howells of Choteau County. “It is an incessant, screeching, whining and screaming wind and it seems to be heard nowhere except in Montana on the homestead.”
More than 80,000 homesteaders moved into Montana between 1909 and the early 1920's. By the late 1920's, 60,000 of them had either packed up and left or were sent off to fight in World War I. Many homesteaders took claims with little or no farming experience, and growing crops in the harsh conditions of the West was a difficult task for even the most sea-

soned farmers. Many homesteads in the arid plains were too small to yield a profitable crop, and the cost of irrigation far exceeded the value of the land. Over the 124-year history of the Act, more than 2 million individuals filed claims. Of these, only 783,000 -- less than half -- ultimately obtained the deeds for their homesteads. For many, Montana promised an easier, more prosperous life than in the "settled" parts of the country. Montana pioneer Marie Tintinger Nevin recalled:
"Several letters came from my brothers, telling what a wonderful climate Montana had, and how the livestock grazed on the range the year around. That sounded good to us back in the cold northern part of Iowa, where we had to hover around the stove to keep from freezing and where the blizzards were so bad they had to have lines stretched from houses to barns, to find their way from house to barn and back during a Norther." Even for those who were already in the West, Montana held possibilities. Bartley Curtis, who came to the Territory as a child in the 1880s, reported that in South Dakota,
"Somehow or other the things that they could grow well out there just wasn't doing any good. There was just this bald, bare prairie. So my father decided he would migrate, that he would up and get out of that country."
Lloyd Kanning, a sturdy 76year-old with a full head of white hair and pale blue eyes, who has been driving a tractor since the age of ten: "Farming," he said, "is like fighting a war."
He listed the categories of enemy. "You're fighting the weather to start with. You wait for the right moment, you put your seed in the ground—but if your tractor and other crucial pieces of machinery are old, you're fighting to keep them functional. Then diseases. Then bugs. Defeat all those, get a good stand of wheat grown and turn-
ing amber in the fall, and along comes a hailstorm and beats it to the ground. Or if the hail doesn't find you, the wind does, whipping through your grain to cause "shelling" (kernels falling out of the heads) so bad you lose half your crop before you can cut it. But no, maybe it ripens fine, the hail and the wind spare you, the grasshoppers miss you, and you're ready to cut it—then comes a wet stretch of autumn days, sogging your harvest, forcing you to put damp wheat into the bin. Now you must aerate that bin and dry the grain, or at least keep it cool. And then you've got to fight the price. If your wheat has low protein content, the buyer at the local elevator may discount you as much as a buck forty per bushel for every percentage point below scale. Say that high-protein wheat is selling at six dollars, and you're two points below; your crop might as well disappear.”
Dana Darlington's grandfather, born in 1906, lived in a sod homesteader's house with his widowed mother in southern Chouteau County and, when he got old enough, earned some cash rounding up abandoned livestock for the local bank. "It was pretty harsh. Lot of people were leaving," Darlington said. "When people left, they just up and left their livestock, just let 'em go." His grandfather's job was to bring in those cattle and horses and mules before they starved or were eaten by cougars or wolves—collateral gone to waste. It was pretty tough times, even before the Dust Bowl. The hoppers. The climate, dry. I think a lot of 'em that ended up staying just had a lot of luck on their side—and a lot of determination." It wasn't just man against the elements. Quite a few of those original homesteaders were women, single or widowed, who made their way west and filed alone.
One among them was Vicki Olson's maternal grandmother, from Pennsylvania, who proved up on a place south of Malta in 1920, despite the drought. Meanwhile her brother and the man who would soon become her husband also filed and made good on their own homesteads nearby. During the late 1920s came some years of good rain, green rangeland for livestock,
and high yields of wheat, which allowed some families to enlarge their holdings as vacated places became cheaply available. For Olson's paternal grandparents, sheep paid the bills, but it took much more than 640 acres to support a big flock. "Homestead days didn't work," she said. "This was hatched back East. Where they had all this fertile land. They didn't have a clue what the land was like here." "Other kids had skateboards," Buster Brown said. "I had horses."
Buster spoke about his greatgrandpa, John Brown, a blacksmith who worked on the trolley lines in Great Falls and then came up here to the Sweet Grass Hills and filed on a homestead around 1898. Elmer Brown was John's son, another blacksmith, who filed an adjacent claim of his own. John built a log house, Elmer built one of frame, and eventually Elmer put them together, driving his frame house to the site like a horsedrawn wagon, holding his reins from one of the bedroom windows. He covered the frame and logs with stucco. That's the house Buster was raised in. As you look at all these folks who homesteaded . . . you have to realize that these were hardy, adventurous folks. Sometimes foolhardy, sometimes misinformed, but all seeking a better life. They sought to expand the frontier. Remember, for the Pilgrims, fleeing religious persecution in England, the frontier was the Massachusetts coastline in the 1620s. For Daniel Boone, the frontier was Kentucky in the 1770s. For the residents of Skunk City, a wild boomtown later known as Chicago, the frontier was Illinois in the 1840s. For pioneer author Laura Ingalls Wilder, the frontier was South Dakota in the 1880s. The U.S. has had many frontiers with many pioneers, each existing in its own unique place, time, and cir-

On June 9 at 11:25 a.m., the City of Carlsbad Police Department received a call about a disturbance at the Motel 6 in the 1000 block of Carlsbad Village Drive. As a result of the disturbance, officers arrested 27 year old Matthew Terrell of Oceanside. Terrell was arrested for False Imprisonment and Assault with the Intent to Commit a Sexual Act., and was booked into the Vista Detention Facility. Bail was set at $50,000. Investigators have reason to believe Terrell committed similar crimes in the past six months and investigators are seeking contact by any additional victims. Allegedly, the victim ws lured to the Motel 6 to take modeling photos. The victim learned of the “job” via a website. Once she arrived, she was bound and assaulted. Other guests called police and upon arrival they arrested Terrell.

in 2008 many people in North San Diego County responded to the Kaiser officials with complaints of censorship.
I thought I had honorably served this country (medic US Army 1976-79) to help keep it a "free" place of ideas, some good some not so good, but never the less a country where we, the people, could express ourselves with a degree of respect to each other. Now, again see: TheCommunityPaper.com Volume 44- No.23, June 6, 2013, we are made aware of Mr.Sean J. Villafranca, building manager for the Kaiser San Marcos Clinic, has decided to BAN The Paper.

The thing is, The Paper is edited by a very honest and commendable gentleman. He 'tells it like it is' which means that some of his reporting will get on a few nerves ie...Sean Villafrance. The MAJORITY of readers agree with most of what Mr. Lyle E Davis publishes in this wonderfully honest weekly paper. I believe it is time for the top levels of management in Kaiser (Oakland offices) to get involved and review why Mr. Villafrance is still employed with your organization. It must assuredly be due to bias at the local level of management which may mean local management should be reviewed as well (yourself, Dr. Jonathan Rott, Mr. Villafrance, and Dr. Paul Bernstein to name a few). Remember there are national organizations that would jump at the chance to bring litigation down on Kaiser for it's allowance of 'local' staff abridging the First Amendment.
Maybe we 'The People' should start walking a picket line at Kaiser Clinics to inform the rest of the state and country of this vile and cowardly stance Mr. Villafrance and Kaiser has decided to pursue. Sincerely,

I just wanted to give you my opinion about the June 13th issue. The headline was overblown rhetoric; the jokes are childish and mysoginistic; Evelyn’s work contains valuable local information; The Man about Town is selfindulgent puffery and the news reporting is right on!
I've been trying to figure out for many months what the truth may be about this local story but The Paper has excelled in a manner that the Union Tribune and the LA Times has not come close to. Kudos to you. These are my conclusions from your writings. The socalled commendation is unprofessional police work. Commendations are not inside jokes and I've seen too many certificates like this used to buffer up an officer's credibility in court cases to know they should not be treated like this one.

is below their ranks to see gutter sniping of this sort. Yes, these should be considered when evaluating either man for the next Chief. It is noteworthy that there appears to be favoritism involving police or their families when medical care is involved.
Jim Maher was right to inform the City Manager of the contents of the e-mails. Clay Phillips was wrong to elevate his personal grievance with the Chief of Police over an internal matter that sould have been handled administratively. The City Council was wrong to not pull the chain on the City Manager who allowed such a fiasco to become public fodder despite all of their best efforts to keep this secret. I would not be surprised if the actions of the Council did not cause this incident to exceed $100,000 of hard earned tax-payer funds. Finally, The Paper is to be praised for editorial and reporting of this local story and I'm sure I'm not the only one who thinks so. Keep up the good work.

/s/David W. Ryan Retired Judge
Editor’s Note: We are proud to say that David Ryan was once our attorney, before he was elevated to his distinguished seat on the Superior Court Bench. He has a distinguished law career and I regret he is retired. He certainly earned it . . . but I’d love to see that great legal mind back at work.
Dear Mr. Davis, I like both, The Paper, as well as Kaiser / San Marcos, and I am fortunate to read most issues of The Paper somewhere other than Kaiser's waiting rooms. This does not change my position that Mr. Villafranca (not exactly a "gent", as you kindly refered to him) is overreaching and exploiting the trust by his employer in order to advance his personal agenda. In addition to the principles which you already defended, I also take it personally - if a facility overseer can not coexist with readers of The Paper, who ultimately pay his salary, then he needs a career change, not the other way around.
These performances take place under the stars at the Moonlight Amphitheater in Vista. Tickets are available at all Camp Pendleton ITT offices and the Camp Pendleton YMCA. For more information, visit the Moonlight Cultural Foundation.

San Marcos Seeking Vendors for 4th of July Celebration - The City of San Marcos is currently seeking vendors for
to detect problems their patients may be encountering. With the new technologies dentists can more easily discover diseases, cancers, and infections, refer patients, and save lives. Some of the newer treatments learned through continuing education include: Sleep Apnea and snoring which are becoming epidemic, can now be detected, tested and treated, allowing you to stay healthier and more rested, while avoiding surgery. New treatments of migraines and jaw joint issues provide patients new remedies, often without the need for strong pain medications, many of which are addictive.
New Oral CT scans allow precise planning for placement of bone and implants. Implant designs continually get better and enhance our ability to eat and speak efficiently even at an older age.

‘Montana Tough’ Cont. from Page 3 many carved out a meaningful life during Montana’s homestead boom, and the effects of their commitment were readily apparent. The state’s population exploded from 243,329 to 376,053 and the aggregate number of farms doubled to 26,214 during the 20th century’s first decade. By 1910, the income generated by agriculture surpassed that of mining. But this was just the beginning. After WWI ended, and after seven years of drought, and a general depression, an estimated 60,000 people left Montana during the 1920s, many of them moving to Washington, Oregon, and especially California. The extent of the disaster was staggering and grim statistics tell the story. Between 1919 and 1925, roughly two million acres passed out of production and 11,000 farms—about 20 percent of the state’s total—were vacated. Farmland prices fell by 50 percent, 20,000 mortgages were foreclosed, and half of Montana’s farmers lost their land. Between 1920 and 1926, more than half of Montana’s commercial banks failed. Montana’s bankruptcy rate became the highest in the United States.
The collapse of the Montana homestead movement marked the end of the frontier era in the Treasure State. An era of pronounced economic growth and unrivaled optimism was replaced by an unparalleled time of economic stagnation and tragic loss.
If Montana’s history has been shaped by one telltale pattern, it is the cycle of boom-bust development so clearly embodied in its homesteading and mining experiences. It is the thing, more than any other, that has shaped its character and cultivated their resiliency. Without hope and hardship, they simply would not be. Karen and Murray Taylor live 20 miles north of Devon. Her grandfather, from Norway, had homesteaded here in 1909. Now she and Murray would like to retire. But they have no pension, no "investments" except their
sweat equity in the farm. They call it the Circle 7, "because we have five kids, and we were a circle of seven, and we all built this place." They could struggle for the rest of their lives, she said, or sell out and retire in ease. "We want to see it succeed as a legacy," Karen said. Any family farmers must feel the same way, she guessed, "or they wouldn't still be here." It's not just something you do, with or without a good reason. It becomes "a part of who you are," she said, then added simply: "Your identity." Sources: David Quammen, National Geographic, January, 2012.

What is Microsoft Thinking?! Part three, The Conclusion
In the last two columns we discussed W8’s (Windows 8) problems, the public’s overwhelming rejection of W8, the huge drop in retail PC sales and Microsoft’s stubborn refusal to fix W8’s problems by offering a standard (start button/desktop) IU (user interface) as an alternative to the mouse/keyboard hostile “touch screen” Metro UI currently installed on all W8 PCs.
Microsoft’s strategy to date has been to leverage “Windows” dominance as a PC operating system (OS) to force the public to become accustomed to the look and feel of the Metro “touch screen” UI in W8. Although Metro is an excellent UI
Wyland Excellence in Education Awards
June is graduation season, and families and friends are coming together to honor high school seniors and their achievements. To join in recognizing some of the standout members of the class of 2013, I have announced the 2013 Excellence in Education Awards. This is my third year working with high schools in our community to identify and award students who have excelled in specific award categories, which include: Technical Studies Student of the Year, Vocational Studies Student of the Year, Student Leader of the Year, and Community Service Student of the Year. These categories represent key education areas that sup-
for touch screens (phones/tablets) it is cumbersome to use with the mouse/keyboard interface devices commonly used on PCs. Microsoft is willing to face some public rejection from PC users for two reasons, first PC user don’t have a viable alternative to Microsoft and second, PC sales are not growing while the present annual growth of smart phone and tablet sales is well over 50%. Microsoft is willing to risk its lions share in the low or no growth mouse/keyboard device business to improve its single digit share of the growing “touch screen” devices business. So how’s that working out for Microsoft? Microsoft’s share of smart phone operating systems rose from 2% to 3.2% by 1st quarter 2013 and is estimated at over 5% today. While a small percentage of the market, it still represents dynamic growth. Google’s Android OS continues to increase its dominant market share mostly at the expense of Apple’s IOS.
Microsoft are gaining market share in tablets and smart phones and Apple is fading fast. Don’t cry for Apple yet. Despite their loss of market share Apple continues its growth in sales and profitability. While Apple may be losing share, the markets it participates in are growing so fast that Apples sales continue to grow. Since last fall Apple’s stock has tumbled from $700 to the low $400s as news of its declining market share in its primary business’ caused investors to question Apple’s future.

received notes from over a hundred exuberant parents. One mom wrote, “My children have been singing all over the house and everywhere they go this week! They have become more helpful, and are doing their chores. They have become more aware about the poverty and needs in the world. They are learning compassion and gratefulness!”
The Best Week of a Child’s Summer Dr. Hal Seed, Lead Pastor, New Song Community Church, Oceanside
Parents look for enriching experiences for their children every summer. This is why New Song works so hard to make our annual Kids Camp (8:30a to noon, July 15-19) the best week of the year for every family involved. Kids Camp revolves around groups of kids, huddled with an enthusiastic counselor, learning sports, games and crafts, enjoying songs, and delving into the Bible. Last summer, 350 elementary and preschool aged children experienced Kids Camp together with over 100 counselors and staff. The kids are still talking about it! At the end of the week last year, I
Every week our goal is to make Sunday morning the best hour of the week for each child who attends one of New Song’s seven worship experiences. I think we do pretty well at it! But Kids Camp takes it to a whole new level. We issue an invitation to every school-aged child in Oceanside to participate every year. Since our goal is to extend God’s love, we try hard to target families who are not already attending a church somewhere else. If that’s you, I hope you’ll consider this your warm invitation to join us for a great week.
This year’s Camp includes sports options for flag football, soccer, basketball, cheerleading, crafts, drama, karate and gymnastics. We’re making room for more kids than ever this year, but the camp WILL fill up, so if you’re interested, please register today at http://www.newsongchurch.com/mi nistries/children/kids-camp2013.html.

Robert Wright, joined The Paper several months ago. Many of you will remember Bob as the always smiling owner of the Robert Wright Fine Art Gallery on Grand Avenue in Escondido, featuring fine art, water colors, oils, and statuary. He operated that gallery for 22 years. As a businessman, Bob has many years of experience in buying television, radio, and newspaper. “We had the top media salespersons calling on us. I learned from the best of the best,” says Wright. “I always had to deal with time and budgets, seasonal promotions, promotions within, product and service promotions, new product introduction, receptions and promotion.
My budget for advertising was at least 8% of my net sales. Having the name of my business exposed to the public was the most important business decision I could make! Choosing a vehicle to expose the name was even more important. Placing an advertisement here or an advertisement there didn’t work for me. But placing the ad in the same vehicle for 12 to 13 weeks did. I learned the hard way. I wasted money competing for likewise business too far away. All I needed was the customer in my back yard, a good ten to fif-
I learned the internet might have the ABILITY to be reached by the computer’s user and viewed by only one person at a time, but sharing the screen without the mobility of a desk top or laptop which involves the relocation of the connections attachments,( wires, mouse, keyboard, tilting the screen for vision control and etc. ) or yourself is not for me. I would much rather just hand my paper across the table, pass it to the companion or leave open for the next person! Some Business Owners employ professional consultants, marketing specialists, advertising companies or others to do this work for a fee. I know this area and have hands on experience for the past 25 years. I just would not feel comfortable with some out of town so called specialist spending my advertising dollar when they never have stepped foot on the area I want to have a direct effect on. I have the experience, the knowledge of the neighborhoods of North County inland. I have hands on experience in the Retail sector of Small Business which is the backbone of this community. Your business depend on sales results. This is my audience. I want to share your business with them! Call me.
