porting the Chief (Maher) would be dealt with swiftly and severely."
Lieutenant Greg Ellis, a 21 year veteran of the Escondido Police Department, left for vacation in March. He was never allowed back in the the police headquarters building nor did he ever get a real chance to say goodbye to his pals.
At one point, Phillips apparently learned that Ellis and other friends (non-supervisors) had met with Maher for lunch at Wildomar, near Murietta. Ellis readily confirmed this to anyone who asked. Phillips, it is said, sought to terminate Ellis at that time for insubordination but was allegedly given legal advice that Ellis had every legal right to speak with Maher and an insubordination charge would fail.
While on vacation in Hawaii with his family, Lieutenant Ellis was placed on leave, with pay. He was advised via his attorney then subsequently via letter that he was terminated as of June 7th, 2013. The reason as stated in a letter to him was "failure to comply with and meet the standards of a police lieutenant."
Phillips then, it is alleged, ordered an investigation and learned that Ellis made a comment early on, shortly after Maher was placed on leave, to the effect of . . ."Don't make any judgments yet. We don't know what's going on. The Chief has been very good to us. He listens. Until we hear otherwise, we need to support him."
Other than a minor reprimand early in his career back in 1993 or 1994, Ellis did not have one single discplinary action on his record, according to reliably informed sources. Even that minor reprimand was forgiven by the department. Witness the fact that Ellis was steadily promoted, most recently on October 11th, 2011, when he was promoted to Lieutenant.
While he was called in for questioning by the city’s paid investigator prior to his trip to Hawaii, he had no inkling that he was going to be discplined in any way . . . let alone terminated.
Knowledgeable sources, both within and outside the Escondido Police Department, believe the termination was nothing more than retaliation by Clay Phillips, the Escondido City Manager. It is reported by many of these same sources that there was great friction between Phillips and former Chief of Police, Jim Maher. It is also known that Lieutenant Ellis was a supporter of Maher. Because The Paper - 760.747.7119
One of the officers who heard this counsel was a good friend of then-Lieutenant Craig Carter, whom sources say has been Phillips choice for Chief of Police for the past several years, and sent an email to Clay Phillips saying Ellis was being political in his comments.
of this support, Phillips appears to have made the decision to terminate Ellis.
This is particularly remarkable because of the fact that at one point, when Clay Phillips was roundly criticized for what many to be an outrageously high salary and benefits package, then Lieutenant Ellis had risen to speak in defense of Clay Phillips, defending the very man who was later to terminate
him, apparently without justifiable cause. This occurred during an “all hands meeting” in the city council chambers and there were many witnesses to Ellis’ support of Phillips.
Phillips had met with a group of officers, Lieutenants and above, following Chief Maher being placed "on leave." Those officers, according to multiple sources who were present, heard Clay Phillips say, "sup-
Some observers thought Ellis may have been implicated by distributing either a petition in support of Maher, or a survey regarding Maher's situation and that he attended a rally for Chief Maher. Ellis was at the rally, not as a participant but as the Lieutenant in charge of the Mobile Field Force, an assignment that can be readily verified by a simple check of police logs and assignments for that date. In fact, he was stationed behind the scene and did not enter the

rally area until the rally had concluded. If he was videotaped at the rally, it was in his capacity as Commander of the MFF and was directing his officers in cleanup details.
Ellis claims he absolutely did not distribute any petition(s) or surveys. After Ellis returned from vacation, only to learn he was to be terminated, and after the termination occurred, he filed an appeal. The appeal was heard/read by Assistant City Manager Charley Grimm. Appeal denied. Ellis is appealing now through the Peace Officer Bill of Rights Panel and is being represented by the LDF (Legal Defense Fund) into which Ellis paid his dues for 21 years.
If that appeal is denied, chances are Ellis will file suit through the LDF; he is, however, said to be negotiating with a high profile attorney in Los Angeles who has extensive esxperince in municipal law and municipal
Give Us This Day Our Daily Chuckle This week, a compendium of wit, wisdom and neat stuff you can tell at parties. Enjoy! The Three Blondes
Three blondes were all applying for the last available position on the Oceanside Police Force. The detective conducting the interview looked at the three of them and said, "So you all want to be cops, huh?" The blondes all nodded.
The detective got up, opened a file drawer, and pulled out a folder. Sitting back down, he opened it, pulled out a picture, and said, "To be a detective, you have to be able to detect. You must be able to notice things such as distinguishing
management practices and law. More than somewhat bewildered, Ellis has confided to friends that he simply does not understand what happened. He told these friends, "I was with the city for 21 years . . . the city had been good to me until this episode. I have warm memories of my duties with the city and am proud of my 21 year career in law enforcement and of the many friends I made along the way." If the matter does go to trial, chances are a number of individuals will be subpoened to testify and there will likely be explosive testimony that is sure to embarrass the city, its management, and its elected officials. Ellis had been in law enforcement for 25 years, serving as a Patrol Officer, as a Field training officer three different times in his career, served on Gang Team, served on SWAT for almost 10 years (holding a variety of positions on SWAT), was a sector coordinator with the COPPS Unit from 2001-2004, was instrumental in creating the citywide apartment manager monthly meeting to assist the city/PD, was a detective from 2005-2006 dealing in the family
features and oddities like scars and so forth."
So saying, he stuck the photo in the face of the first blonde and withdrew it after about two seconds. "Now," he said, "did you notice any distinguishing features about this man?" The blonde immediately said, "Yes, I did, he has only one eye!"
The detective shook his head and said, "Of course he has only one eye in this picture! It's a profile of his face! You're dismissed!"
The first blonde hung her head and walked out of the office.
The detective then turned to the second blonde, stuck the photo in her face for two seconds, pulled it back, and said, "What about you? Notice anything unusual or outstanding about this man?" "Yes! He only has one ear!"
The detective put his head in

In January 2006, the record shows he was promoted to Sergeant; in July 2008, transferred to Special Investigations Unit to head the vice/narcotics unit. He worked several large scale operations with Federal agencies.
While in SIU, he was temporarily assigned duty to head the Amber Dubois case. He supervised a task force of EPD, FBI, and NGO (non govt agency) personnel for approx three months. In recognition of his leadership and accomplishments, in October 2011, he was promoted to lieutenant and served as PM watch commander/North District Area Commander (with collateral duties such as K-9 coordinator, PERT supervisor, MFF commander, Palomar Hospital liaison). Additionally, he worked on special projects such as methods to deploy resources to fight crime, improve methods of crime analysis reporting, and establishing a process to e-ffec-
his hands and exclaimed, "Didn't you hear what I just told the other lady? This is a profile of the man's face! Of course you can only see one ear! You're excused too!" The second blonde sheepishly walked out of the office.
The detective turned his attention to the third and last blonde and said, "This is probably a waste of time, but...." He flashed the photo in her face for a couple of seconds and withdrew it, saying, "All right, did you notice anything distinguishing or unusual about this man?" The blonde said, "I sure did. This man wears contact lenses.”
The detective frowned, took another look at the picture, and began looking at some of the papers in the folder. He looked up at the blonde with a puzzled expression and said, "You're absolutely right! His bio says he wears contacts! How in the world could you tell that by looking at his picture?"
The blonde rolled her eyes and said, "Well,
tively communicate strategies to PD personnel.
The question, then, appears obvious. Why was Lieutenant Greg Ellis terminated? Was it for insubordination? Was it retaliatory? He apparently was told he was an "at will" employee . . . however, there are some legal experts who say that won't stand up in court. Lieutenants are not able to hire or fire any individual . . . and they get paid overtime. Only Captains and above are true "at will" employees some argue. There are others who argue the opposite. This may, in fact, have to be determined in court. Was it an unlawful termination? The way things are going it would appear that a court will decide that question as well.
Sources from within the police department tell us that the normal procedure if a Lieutenant gets into trouble is that the city "negotiates a resignation." Ellis has said he is unwilling to resign for something he did not do.

Hellooooooooooooo! With only one eye and one ear, ...he certainly can't wear glasses." Paddy the Painter
An Irish painter by the name of Paddy Murphy, while not a brilliant scholar, was a gifted portrait artist.
Over a short number of years, his fame grew and soon people from all over Ireland were coming to him in the town of Doolin, County Clare, to get him to paint their likenesses.
One day, a beautiful young English woman arrived at his house in a stretch limo and asked Paddy if he would paint her in the nude.
This being the first time anyone had made such a request, Paddy was a bit perturbed, particularly when the woman told him that money was no object; in fact, she was willing to pay up to $10,000. Not wanting to get into any marital strife, Paddy asked

Can a city manager terminate an officer because of "no confidence?" Possibly. But logic would demand that there be some basis for determining the lack of confidence. Disciplinary problems, for example. No such actions appear on Ellis's personnel jacket. Also, if there is a disciplinary problem, usually the employee is given a reasonable opportunity to correct whatever error the city has taken note of. No such opportunity was extended to Ellis. What has happened to Lieutenant Ellis is of more than passing interest to us, particularly in view of the recent revelations of behind the scenes activity that concern former Chief Jim Maher.
Former Escondido Lieutenant Chris Wynn
Lieutenant Chris Wynn also has left the department, voluntarily, for a job with the Val Verde Unified School District in Riverside County. Recently, Wynn sent an email to the members of the Escondido City Council whch said, in part: “Phillips leads by fear.” He says Phillips threatened officers with “swift and severe punishment” if they supported Maher while he was on leave, which confirms Ellis’ account. Wynn’s email urges council members to question how Phillips has led the city since the Maher investigation began. “If he had an issue with Chief Maher, he should have simply removed him from office without all the drama surrounding this investigation,” the email says. “He has made the city look horrible and substantiated the idea that there are back door deals occurring at the highest levels of city government.”
In Wynn’s email, he says he reluctantly left the department because it became apparent after the Maher investigation began
that any supporters of the former chief weren’t welcome.
“It became clear to me that I could no longer be a contributor to the organization as I was believed to be ‘in the Maher camp’ and not a team player,” Wynn says.
Knowledgeable sources tell us Wynn heard about the high paying, top security job in the Temecula area and opted to resign from the department before the city tried to do to him what they had done to Ellis.
Morale at the Escondido Police Department is reported to be terrible. Officers, both line and command, are not sure when the next shoe is going to drop . . and on whom. The department is like a rudderless ship, with no one clearly in charge. Interim Chief Cory Moles is relucantly retiring July 1st.
A number of officers have voluntarily left the department and the department is having problems recruiting new officers. Even if successful in recruiting, there is a long wait for the police academy to graduate new officers and officers wanting to make a lateral transfer from another police agency are not likely to be enthralled with transferring into Escondido, given the adverse political climate. In spite of this turmoil, the Escondido Police Department officers, thanks to the training instilled in them by former Chief Jim Maher, continue to turn out excellent police work.
Just one example is the recent brilliant police work by Escondido Police Detective Damian Jackson and his colleagues, Detective Jeff Udvarhelyi, and Detective Julie Barnes. This trio worked 48 consecutive hours without sleep to ensure the return to Escondido of a 14 year-old boy who had been lured to Tampa, Florida, allegedly by the suspect, Tony McLeod, who has since been charged with multiple crimes, including that of being a sex offender against a minor. That is outstanding police work.
So far, in spite of the drama caused by city hall and upper echelons of police management,
the department continues to do its job well. But morale is suffering. Greg Ellis will survive. He's found a well paying job in the private sector . . . but he is clearly concerned that all of his 21 year career with the Escondido Police Department has been tarnished by his termination for no apparent reason. All of which brings into focus the large question.
Just who is running the Escondido Police Department? Who is running the city? It appears City Manager Clay Phillips is the answer to both questions. Theoretically, the Escondido City Council "runs" the city. That is an out and out fallacy and has been for years. The council thinks they run the city but, in fact, city staff have run the city for years and always will. City staff and city managers who know their way around the political minefields and learn early on how to manipulate their Mayor and City Council, can get away with anything short of murder.
Does Clay Phillips have too much power? The answer is, he only has the power the Escondido City Council grants him. Mayor Sam Abed, who controls the majority vote of the council, has so far given Phillips his support. The council has followed Abed's lead. Of potential concern to Abed is the upcoming election for Mayor in 2014. Will his embracing Clay Phillips prove to be a millstone around his neck, costing him re-election as Mayor? Not too far fetched. Abed already will face strong competition from present Deputy Mayor, Olga Diaz. And there is a strong rumor that Jim Maher will move back from Murietta to Escondido and run for Mayor. If that happens, the vote is likely to be split three ways for Mayor and srange things just might happen.

Selection Process for New Escondido Chief of Police
The City of Escondido will begin an internal selection process for the position of Police Chief starting in midJuly. The selection process will include an assessment center which is a series of exercises in which each participant is given an opportunity to demonstrate his skills to a group of experienced observers who carefully monitor the candidates’ responses. It is anticipated the process will be completed by early August, with an announcement made shortly thereafter. The City’s three Police Captains, Robert Benton, Craig Carter and Michael Loarie are the only candidates under consideration. Until the new Police Chief is selected, responsibility for the daily operations of the Police Department will be handled by Captain Benton. Fatal Stabbing in Oceanside

Is there any doubt summer is here? The Del Mar Fair is going full tilt . . .horse racing is just around the corner . . kids and families heading for the beach .. . others, like us, off to a convention, and then a vacation.
And people are losing their tempers and stabbing each other.
June 20th, Oceanside police received a 911 call concerning a fight at a parking lot on Mission Avenue near North Myers Street. Upon responding, police found a 17-yearold boy who died after he was stabbed during a fight. Paramedics initiated lifesaving measures, then took him to a hospital, where he died.
Witnesses heard gang challenges exchanged between two groups of people. The victim, however, is not known to be a gang member by police. Authorities did not release the teen’s name, citing his age and ongoing investigation.
The death marks the sixth homicide in the city this year, four of the victimes having been teenagers. Each of those teen victims were killed by gang members who had come into the neighborhood.
Oceanside’s anonymous tip line is (760) 435-4730. To speak to an investigator, call Detective Wallace at (760) 435-4892. Whatever happened to good, old-fashioned fist fights? Why do knives, guns, machetes, ice picks, tire irons, and other accoutrements of gang warfare enter into a reasonable discussion of who is a no-good so and so and who isn’t? ••••• Had three redheads on my hands Saturday morning while having breakfast at Westside Cafe at 9th & Redwood.

Evelyn and Mandy aren’t happy unless they are ganging up on me and giving me all sorts of chatter and static about life and the world in general. I guess they expect me to solve all the world’s ills. Though I’m sure they must realize it, I am, after all, a mere mortal. Still, the breakfast (a threeegg omelet) was, as usual superb.

Stabbings Frequent in North Cunty
A series of stabbings have erupted in North County; in addition to the Oceanside stabbing in the story above, Escondido police responded to a stabbing involving a 14year-old boy on Friday, June 21st. Believed to be gang related, it happened during a brawl that was reported about 10:15 p.m. on Rock Springs Road. About half a dozen men in their late teens or early 20s ran away before police were able to respond. Meanwhile, in Solana Beach, three men were stabbed at the Belly Up Tavern. A 23-yearold man was arrested Thursday night, June 20th, following an altercation. Two security guards, as well as another employee of the Belly Up Tavern on Cedros Avenue, were injured just before 11:30 p.m. when they tried to break up an altercation inside the club, according to sheriff’s deputies. ‘Local News’ Cont. on Page 10

‘Commentary’ Cont. from Page 4 tain areas of city government except, of course, for those areas overseen by Clay Phillips, Escondido’s highly paid City Manager. Phillips also has control over the Escondido Police Department.
But the question is, who has oversight over Clay Phillips? Ostensibly, the Mayor and City Council are the supervisors who oversee the operations of its City Manager. Hizzoner, Mayor Sam, will tell you with a straight face that he has no influence whatsoever in the hiring and firing of personnel. He and the council only hire and fire the City Manager and City Attorney. In theory, that’s correct. In the real world, not so much.
If Phillips is clever enough to persuade the council that (a) he’s worth $234,800 (plus benefits and other allowances), (b) that his department heads deserved pay raises totalling almost $200,000 when other city
staffers had waived raises and taken cutbacks, and when the East Valley Library had been closed due to “budget considerations,” (c) that Escondido’s Chief of Police, Jim Maher, was the bad guy when it was Maher who turned over evidence of inappropeate behavior on the part of two of his senior command staff officers, (d) that he should fire another police Lieutenant Greg Ellis, because, it is alleged, Ellis (1) supported Maher (2) was seen having coffee with Maher after all officers were told to not communicate with Maher after he was placed on “leave,” that he was allegedly caught attending a rally in support of Maher, and that he had been videotaped at the rally, possibly with a sign, (e) that morale at the Escondido Police Department and within City Hall staff is just A-OK and hunky dory . . . well, then Mr. Phillips appears to be clever enough to pretty much control his city council and its members. If the government isn’t policing itself effectively, that leaves the media.
The City Council is a very insular place. Once politicians get in, they tend to listen more to staff. To the people? Not so much. The people seldom have the ear of their elected representatives. Staff, if they wish, have the ear of the Mayor and council on a regular basis.
Council endures (or enjoys) minimal oversight, by anygovernment, by the newspapers, and by extension, the residents of Escondido. So we just have to trust that our entrenched legacy politicians are acting in our best interests and aren’t causing trouble while they operate unwatched.
Our job, as we see it, is to be the eyes and ears of the public, our readers . . . and to inform them of what we learn. That is just one reason why we featured this week’s cover story on the termination of Lieutenant Greg Ellis. We felt you had a right to know the background information and other sources and informants felt the same way. Our thanks to the courageous folks who inform us, often at the risk of their jobs.

One day I received a subpoena to testify in court. I went and swore to tell the truth. I did. The District Attorney did not like what I had to say and complained to the department that I was trying to throw the case.

It is really a shame to see Chief Maher leave the Escondido Police Department. It is definitely Escondido’s loss. I have met with Chief Maher on several occasions in the past and he is a level headed person that has the citizens and the City’s best interest at heart. He will be missed.

say to recall the Mayor and City Council and get someone in office that will. There is a lot of this type of hypocrisy in all forms of Government and needs to be stopped. Just because you don’t personally like another or don’t believe in their political base or opinions is not a reason to dismiss or “fire” a person because you are their boss and can. The real test is whether the person was doing his or her job properly, as Chief Maher was.
This type of behavior is going on everywhere, but because of the “Thin Blue Line” no one wants to risk their position, assignment or job to say anything about it. My good friend was a pilot at ASTREA, flying the Sheriff’s helicopter for a living (What a job!) The taxpayers shelled out over a hundred grand to pay for training, flight lessons and learn how to fight fires. Then the commanding officer of ASTREA changed. Within two days of getting his unrestricted pilot’s license, he was called into the office and was told he was unsafe to fly. What! After passing all the tests, the FAA exams and everything else (on the tax-

Imagine my surprise on reading your recent article on The Killing of a Warrior. Not only was it surperb, but it was Real News because it was factual, and named real persons. The article showed clearly that something was "rotten in the State of Escondido." Noting that rot always starts at the top, the finger points to the head of the Escondido City council, who has it in his power to fire the City Manager. The recent 'nonrebuttal' by Clay Philips was pointless. Anyone who says he has "zero tolerance for..." anything usually means he has "zero tolerance for the facts." It is my hope that you will return to digging into articles that are of importance to the communities you serve, rather than reverting to the telling of interesting yarns. ‘Letters to the Editor’ Cont. on Page 15

The victims were taken to hospitals where they were treated for minor injuries. The attacker was identified as Jason Zamora, officials said.
Zamora was arrested on assault with a deadly weapon charges and booked into Vista jail.
Stabbing victim Francisco Diaz, who works security at Belly Up, said the suspected assailant was “pushy” with another person prior to the fight. He said he didn’t see the altercation inside the venue, but “as we got them outside is when it really escalated.”
Diaz said he didn’t realize for a few minutes that he had been stabbed twice in the leg, including a cut to a tendon. The wounds were treated with stitches and staples, he said. Belly Up released a statement Friday morning praising the response by staffers and deputies. “We have trained security on staff for all shows at the Belly Up and they did their job admirably protecting our customers. The Sheriff’s department responded quickly and we are very thankful that no one was seriously injured,” the statement read. Woman Killed While Sleeping/Husband Arrested

Sadie is literally the perfect dog. She is wonderful with other pets, absolutely loves children and is fantastic with very young children. She is sweet and playful and fun-loving. Her favorite toy is a tennis ball, she will chase it all day. She is trained and well behaved. She is energetic and spunky, but also loves to just lay down and cuddle to watch a movie with you. Sadie is only 3 yrs old and has had such bad luck and we are hoping to change that for her. She ended up in the shelter for the first time when her owner passed away. You would think one of the owners loved ones would come for her but this never happened. Fortunately she was adopted by a young family with children who loved her dearly but when they lost their home this past year and had to move in with a relative Sadie was not welcome to join them and found herself in the shelter a second time. This time Sadie's time ran out at the shelter and in a desperate attempt to save her life one of the shelter workers put her on our transport unexpectedly. You could imagine our surprise, when little Sadie jumped out of the truck. We would love to find Sadie's final and forever home. If you think, you may be the home for her then please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Giggles, Cores & Hertzes
How many gigahertz is the CPU speed? People still ask that question. CPU clock speed is measured in Hertz (cycles per second). A 500MHz CPU cycles five hundred thousand times a second. A 3.0GHz CPU blinks its tiny eyes three billion times each second. At one time CPU speed was the most important measure of computer performance. Today it is mostly irrelevant.
In 1995 when The Computer Factory began building PCs there was a single CPU “family,” the Pentium. Intel and AMD both manufactured it. Intel owned the design and AMD manufactured and sold Intel CPU designs under a longstanding license agreement. You could have a Pentium with CPU
Prisoner Release Order is Criminal
Last week, three federal judges alarmed law enforcement with an order for California to release nearly 10,000 prison inmates by the end of 2013.
These judges have already forced the state to release thousands of inmates to relieve supposed overcrowding in state prisons. As the uptick in crime suggests, many concerned Californians rightfully fear the release of more inmates. I am concerned the public safety of local communities will be put at risk, while city and county law enforcement agencies are challenged with limited resources. Californians deserve better. With one of the highest tax rates in the country, citizens
clock speeds of (MHz) 66, 75, 90, 100, 120, 133 and 150. As with the previous CPU “Families,” (386 and 486) Pentium CPUs were all exactly the same, made with exactly the same materials and by exactly the same process. Testing and sorting determined the clock speeds. Motherboards had “clock multiplier” circuits that would allow a 33MHz CPU to clock at 33, 66, 100, 133, 150MHz. The Pentium “family” was really a single CPU. Since all CPUs were of the same design, clock speed was the only important differentiation. The faster the clock speed, the higher the performance and price. Clock speed correlated directly to performance from the first PCs in the late 1970s until the late 1990s when AMD began designing their own CPUs. Today the design of the CPU has far more to do with performance than clock speed.
tionship between clock speed and performance. AMD’s new CPUs had changed all that but Intel’s marketing geniuses decided that the public would continue to regard clock speed as the dominant factor in performance in spite of the evidence. In November of 2000 Intel introduced the Pentium IV. The Pentium IV was tricked up to run at much higher clock speeds but not higher performance. A Pentium IV running at 2.0GHz was lower in performance than a Pentium III running at 1.2GHz. Industry insiders watched in wonder as Intel’s blunder began a years long slide in PC market share culminating in 2006 when AMD actually passed Intel to become the number one producer of desk-top PC CPUs. In 2007 Intel introduced
its new line of redesigned multi-core CPUs and dropped clock speed from its part numbering scheme. The Core 2 Duo at 1.8 GHz had twice the performance of the Pentium IV at 3.6GHz.
Today Intel and AMD combined produce over 300 different CPUs and over 20 families for desktop PCs. In addition they produce many more for servers and mobile devices. The CPU design and number of “cores” are far greater factors than clock speed With clock speed no longer a valid measure of PC capabilities we’ve turned to “benchmarks” to tell us about the performance variables of the components in our computers. That will be our topic next week.
In 1999 AMD’s newly designed Athlon CPUs leap-frogged Intel’s Pentium III in performance. AMD’s new design allowed their CPUs to run cooler and at lower clock speeds while outperforming Intel Pentium CPUs that ran hotter and at higher clock speeds. The relationship of clock speed to performance had been broken. Intel had always incorporated clock speed as part of their CPU part number because of the historic rela-

Shortening sentences by allowing early release is an unfair solution to a debatable definition of prison overcrowding. The judges’ order has elevated prisoner wellbeing above the well-being of Californians. Releasing 10,000 more inmates will not improve public safety in our state. I will encourage the Governor and my colleagues to protest this order and fight to ensure reliable public safety for Californians.

The Pastor Says . . .
Pastor Sam Brumit M316 Church, San Marcos
I am glad to be part of a new column in “The Paper”. It’s a chance to share thoughts about all sorts of things. Some kinda spiritual; some practical… some just funny. As a pastor and spiritual leader, people often relegate me to being a “churched” person. I don’t mind it. I love the church.
I think of church like a hospital. A place where broken people come and are accepted and healed. It’s not for perfect people. After all, there was only one perfect person and church is really about a relationship with Him.
There are a lot of misconceptions about church. It probably is one of the most misunderstood entities on earth. It’s also the most important.
Lic #970811 www.agapewaters.com
Essentially, church is a community of believers who realize their need spiritually. It’s a door of hope. Church is a place where you ‘come as you are” where you can put your mask down. A place of caring. In scripture it’s called a “body” of believers. In a body, all the parts are needed. None are unnecessary. "The eye cannot say to the hand, “I have no need of you,” nor again the head to the feet, “I have no need of you.”
Church is not like “The Apprentice” where the weak are eliminated and only the “successful” survive. It’s not just for the young or rich or successful. It’s for everybody. It’s a place where you matter.
Perhaps lots of you reading this don’t see church this way. Thankfully Jesus does. Coming to seek and save, He stated that the “well” don’t need a physician. His original choice for followers proved that. The church is a hospital for sinners, not a Holiday inn for saints.
It’s the one place that offers love, acceptance and nurture. I hope each one is always open to everyone who feels rejected, broken or soul weary; for anyone seeking community.
"Jesus said to them, “Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. I came not to call the righteous, but sinners.” (Mark 2:17) I am glad about that.

‘Letters to the Editor’ Cont. from Page 6
Cheers, Sorab Ghandhi Professor Emeritus, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Troy, NY Currently in Escondido CA 92029
Dear Mr. Davis:
This last week I picked up a copy of the May 16th issue of The Paper and was surprised to find a rather disturbing little “joke” in your “Chuckles” column. I felt I had to respond in some fashion as this is not the first time I have noticed this sort of “humor” published in your otherwise fine publication. The so-called “joke” dealt with an Irishman and an Italian going into a chocolate store and “jokingly” competing against each other to see who was the better thief. The Irishman being only a poor thief in the end while the Italian comes off as not only a thief, but a treacherous backstabber. Quite frankly, I was rather insulted and offended.
Personally, I would have thought that this sort of “ethnic/racial” humor was a thing of the past, but it appears not to be the casel. The sort of “humor” only reinforces the negative stereotyping of ethnic and racial cultures that really shold have been left in the “dustbin of history” a long time ago. that is not the case. Perhaps you feel that I am being too overly sensitive about this and “it’s all in good fun,” . . .but being of Italian extraction I have had to deal
with this sort of “humor” all my life and the ony reasonable explanation I can come up with after sixty-one years is that it is now perfectly acceptable in our society to mock European people and cultures as long as no one denigrates any of the currently “Politically Correct” minorities. Thank you for your valued time and consideration. /s/Nick Petrosino San Marcos, Ca.
Editor’s Note: What do you, the readers, think? Was this an unfair characterization of Italians and Irish folk? Or was it just a joke, showing how an Italian outfoxed an Irishman? Is this joke similar to Norwegian and Swede jokes? Here’s the joke, Petrosino objects to:
The Chocolate Thief
An Italian and an Irishman entered a chocolate store. As they were busy looking, the Irishman stole three chocolate bars. As they left the store, the Irishman said to the Italian, "Man I'm the best thief. I stole three chocolate bars and no one saw me. You can't beat that."
The Italian, "You want to see something better? Let's go back to the shop and I'll show you real stealing."
So they went to the counter and the Italian said to the shopkeeper, "Do you want to see magic?" The shopkeeper "Yes."
The Italian said, "Give me one chocolate bar." The shopkeeper gave him one, and he ate it. The Italian asked for a second bar, and he ate that as well. Then he asked for the third, and finished that one too. The shopkeeper asked, "But where's the magic?"
The Italian replied, "Check in my friend's pocket, and you'll find all three bars of chocolate." You just CAN'T beat an Italian ...

You have to love a nation that celebrates its independence every July 4, not with a parade of guns, tanks, and soldiers who file by the White House in a show of strength and muscle, but with family picnics where kids throw Frisbees, the potato salad gets iffy, and the flies die from happiness. You may think you have overeaten, but it is patriotism. ~Erma Bombeck We Salute Our Wonderful Flag . . . and our Nation. America...you’re simply the Best!
