We just finished watching one of the best films ever produced “Lonesome Dove,” a mini-series that ran Monday through Thursday evenings from 7pm to 11pm. What powerful writing, what masterful dialogue and brilliant acting! A tour-de-force for Robert Duvall, Tommy Lee Jones, and many other memorable actors. The Paper - 760.747.7119
Probably no more accurate depiction of the Old West could be found than “Lonesome Dove,” nominated for 18 Emmy Awards and winning seven.
The reason the film-series became such an epic production is its depiction of the “Old West” the way it was. Based, in part, on true events, it recounted the trials and tribulations of two retired Texas Rangers, their lives and loves, their strengths, their weaknesses.
The Old West is many things to many people . . . and has hundreds, perhaps thousands of different stories.
When we refer to The Old West we are generally talking about the period after the Civil War, the rest of the 1800's, and the early part of the 20th century. It was then that thousands of pioneers pushed their way westward in search of land, better lives, gold and silver, and sometimes, to escape the law. Geographically, the "Old West"
generally applies to those states west of the Mississippi River.
Think of it! We have outlaws, gunfighters, the American cowboy, buried treasures on the frontier, all kinds of Old West Legends that give us tales, biographies, and in-depth history into the lives and times in the American West. We had it all back then. Whiskey, drugs, sporting women, and outlaws, to scandal, sex, sin, and saloons, the

Wicked West was filled with both glitz and grits. You’ll find plenty of each of these elements in “Lonesome Dove.”
There was, however, perhaps an unfair over-emphasis on the premise that so many women in the Old West were prostitutes, or, as the cowboys called them, “whores.” Certainly, there were prostitutes . . . a fair number of them. But not all the women who headed west were “soiled doves.” (Many famous women were, however; for example, Calamity Jane resorted to working in brothels from time to time; the wife of Wyatt Earp also had a colorful and erotic past. While it was not unusual, it certainly was not universal). There were many frontier settlers who were hard working men and women, but there were plenty of others who lived life to the fullest – drinking, smoking, gambling, and often spending freely, and sometimes lavishly. The Wild West was often rough, sometimes dangerous, and always unpredictable.
Let’s take a look at some of the “Painted Ladies,” who worked the Wild, Wild West, and their

England, Dora eventually immigrated to Nebraska with her parents. A good-looking girl in her youth, she arrived in Rapid City going by the name of Amy Helen Dorothy Bolshow and began to work as a dancehall girl. However, by the time the gold rush was on in Deadwood, she had obviously "promoted" herself to a full-scale madam.

Though the vast majority of the many "sporting girls” who worked in Deadwood, South Dakota, remain nameless, others were more notable, such as Madame Dora DuFran. Once she arrived in Deadwood, she continued to build her business until she soon had "branch” houses in Sturgis, Rapid City, and Belle Fourche. Born in

An elderly man in Louisiana owned a large farm for several years. He had a large pond in the back. It was properly
Dora Du Fran - a top Madame
She married a man named Joseph DuFran, a personable gentleman gambler, who not only wasn't bothered by her profession, but helped her to grow her business.
In her early days in Deadwood, she became a friend and occa-
shaped for swimming. So he fixed it up nice with picnic tables, horseshoe courts, and some apple and peach trees.
One evening the old farmer decided to go down to the pond, as he hadn't been there for awhile, and looked it over. He grabbed a five gallon bucket to bring back some fruit. As he neared the pond, he heard voices shouting and laughing with glee. As he came closer, he saw it was a bunch of young women skinny dipping in his pond. He made the women aware of his presence and they all went to the deep end. One of the women shouted to him, we're not coming out until you leave! The old man frowned, "I didn't come down here to watch you ladies swim naked or make you get out of the pond naked". Holding up the bucket he said " I'm here to feed the alligator." Some old men can still think fast! Thoughts

She was also said to have had a "heart of gold," often providing nursing services to those that needed it and helping the poverty stricken. One of Dora’s most popular houses called "Diddlin’ Dora’s,” was in Belle Fourche on Fifth Avenue. Diddlin’ Dora’s advertised itself as "Three D’s – Dining, Drinking and Dancing – a place where you can bring your

mother.” And though the cowboys frequented the popular place, most just wanted to "get down to business,” with at least one man remarking, "I wouldn’t want my mother to know I had ever been there.”
By the turn of the century, Dora was still going strong when a worn out Calamity Jane returned to the Black Hills for the last time in 1903. In the final stages of raging alcoholism and carrying her pathetically few belongings in a dilapidated old suitcase, Jane earned her keep by cooking and doing the laundry for Dora’s brothel girls before she died on August 2, 1903. In 1909, Dora's husband Joseph died at the age of 47 and was buried at Mt. Moriah Cemetery. Afterwards, Dora returned to Rapid City, where she set up another brothel that was wildly popular, especially during the Prohibition years, as it also served as a speakeasy.
Dora DuFran died of heart failure at the age of 60 on August 5, 1934, she was buried at Mt. Moriah next to her husband and a beloved pet parrot who had preceded her in death. Her obituary in the Black Hills Pioneer mourned the passing of "a noted social worker.” Mollie Johnson - Queen of the Blondes
Known as "Queen of the Blondes” in Deadwood's early days, Mollie Johnson ran a brothel at the corner of Sherman and Lee Streets. Johnson had a knack for flaunting her profession by renting a $10 an-hour carriage and riding up and down the main streets of the camp, snubbing not only the few "proper ladies” that might be out on the streets of Deadwood, but also the other "sporting ladies” who didn’t work for her, were not as prosperous, or, in her opinion, were not as beautiful.
Her first appearance in the local news was in February 1878 when she married Lew Spencer, a black minstrel and comedian, who was playing at the Bella Union Theater. However, their "marriage” was anything but typical, as Mollie continued her profession, and as the camp watched, didn’t "act” much like any other married woman. Working for Mollie were three golden haired protégés, whom she lead about town in her many activities – Ida Clark, Ida
One of the larger brothels and its “staff” of “service providers”
Duchesneau. On one occasion, when the Times reported the arrest of three of Mollie’s competitors for selling liquor without a license, they accused Mollie of providing the information that got them arrested. The article read, in part: "[Mollie] caused the corralling of her lascivious sisters, and it was the opinion of the average rounder that Madam Mollie is fixing up a good pounding for herself---by the trio of female sinners referred to.”
As Mollie and her "ladies” went on about their business in Deadwood, the minstrel, Lew Spencer, traveled to Denver, Colorado. Imagine Mollie’s surprise when the newspapers reported in 1879 that her husband, Lew Spencer, had fatally shot his "wife” in Denver. Spencer was sent to prison for the offense, but would later be released and go on to record the earliest known version of A Hot Time in the Old Town, in 1896.
Though scorned by many in Deadwood and arrested several times for selling liquor without a license, Mollie’s business continued to thrive up until that November day in 1879, when much of Deadwood would burn to the ground. Wasting no time, Mollie started up once again, but within the next year would be plagued by two more fires – one in the chimney, and another, in an upstairs bedrooms. But these mishaps failed to shut her down, as the 1880 territorial census reports that Mollie Johnson was running a boarding house, where she and five other young ladies resided. They also reported that she was born in Alabama, was a widow, and was 27 years-old at the time.
The newspapers continued to report her antics and grand balls for the next two years, until a final headline tells that Mollie Johnson left Deadwood in January 1883. What happened to Ms. Johnson beyond Deadwood is seemingly lost in history.
Inez Sexton - Escaping the Trade
Another woman who made herself notable for not joining the ranks of the soiled doves was Inez Sexton. In the early 1880’s, Sexton made the dire mistake of falling for Al Swearengen's ruse to attract women to the Gem Theatre. The scoundrel Swearengen was notorious for advertising in the east for "stage performers,” offering high wages and paying to bring them west. However, when they arrived, they would find that the real duties were something altogether different. Virtually enslaving the often penniless women who arrived in the camp with no way home, Sexton, when she figured out that Al’s real intent was to turn her into a prostitute, gave him a piece of her mind, screaming, "Although my voice is for sale, nothing else is!” She then stomped out of the saloon. Without money to return home, the respectable ladies of Deadwood soon arranged a benefit to earn the fare.
Around 1890, a dance hall and its dance hall girls . . and patrons
In the Wild West, the "proper” ladies still labeled those who didn’t share their values -- by virtue of dress, behavior or sexual ethics, as "disgraceful,” but the shady ladies of the West were generally tolerated by other women as a "necessary evil.” The biggest difference in the American West was the presence of girls in saloons.
This was unheard of east of the Missouri River, except in German beer halls where the daughters or wives of the owners, often served as barmaids and waitresses. There were two types of "bad girls” in the West. The "worst” types, according to the "proper”
Augus 08, 2013 - Page 3
women, were the many painted ladies who made their living by offering paid sex in the numerous brothels, parlor houses, and cribs of the western towns. The second type of "bad girl” was the saloon and dance hall women, who contrary to some popular thinking, were generally not prostitutes -- this tended to occur only in the very shabbiest class of saloons. Though the "respectable” ladies considered the saloon girls "fallen,” most of the girls wouldn’t be caught dead associating with an actual prostitute. Saloon and Dance Hall Girls
A saloon or dancehall girl’s job was to brighten the evenings of the many lonely men of the western towns. In the Old West, men usually outnumbered women by at least three to one – sometimes more, as was the case in California in 1850, where 90% of the population was male. Starved for female companionship, the saloon girl would sing for the men, dance with them, and talk
to them – inducing them to remain in the bar, buying drinks and patronizing the games.
Most saloon girls were refugees from farms or mills, lured by posters and handbills advertising high wages, easy work, and fine clothing. Many were widows or needy women of good morals, forced to earn a living in an era that offered few means for women to do so. Earning as much as $10 per week, most saloon girls also made a commission from the drinks that they sold. Whiskey sold to the customer was generally marked up 30-60% over its wholesale price. Commonly, drinks bought for the girls

At about 11 a.m. on Wednesday, July 31st, Escondido Police were called to the 1500 block of East El Norte Parkway by a child who said he was unable to wake his mother.
Officers arrived on the scene and determined the woman, identified as Juana Jacinto Montalvo, 43, was dead. The cause of death has been determined to be homicide.
The investigation has identified the victim’s husband, Jose Flores Hernandez, 46, as a suspect in this case and there is probable cause for his arrest. Hernandez, who goes by the name “Tony”, is described as a Hispanic male with black collar length hair and brown eyes. He is approximately 5’6” tall and weighs approximately 150 pounds. Hernandez drives a 2004 tan in color GMC Canyon pick-up truck. The truck is a 4-door model, California registration 7D60443. Anyone who knows the whereabouts of Hernandez should not approach him but dial 911.

The Digital Message Boards project the city of Vista was considering appears to be dead in the water . . . for now, at least.
The City Council was to have heard from CBS, the outdoor signage company, in midAugust. A contract had been drawn up.
However, after review of the public's comments from the MND (Mitigated Negative Declaration), the City's Environmental Consultant recommended the preparation of an Environmental Impact Report ( EIR ) prior into entering into an agreement to construct the message boards. The EIR would analyze the proposed project/actions to determine if there is a significant impact

Another thing that makes us happy:
Had lunch at Ray Alto’s Jalapeno Grill last Thursday with Richard Jungas, owner of California Funeral Alternatives. We had both just recently returned from Alaska, we on a cruise, he and his beautiful wife, Marcia, on a selfdrive tour of Alaska from
on the environment, and if so, how to address these concerns.
The City determined it would be a sound decision to take the Environmental Consultant's advice and consider the EIR process rather than a MND to ensure the project is defensible.
Staff received a proposal from the consultant to prepare the EIR and the estimated cost would be a minimum of $150,000 and the timing would be approximately 12 months. At this time there are not any funds budgeted in the current fiscal year for the EIR, which makes it cost prohibitive; therefore it was recommended to the City Council to not move the project forward.
Supporters of The Digital Message Board program point out it would have likely been the second largest single revenue source in the City's portfolio and would have helped the City sustain service levels to the public. While there has been a lot of staff effort put into the process over the past two

We also got to meet Kory, the chef and waiter at Jalapeno Grill. Nice young man and very talented. We’ve never had a meal at Jalapeno Grill that we didn’t thoroughly enjoy. Food is always good as is the service. We’ve gotten to know the wait staff so well that we’ve become part of the extended family. Of course, we’ve known Ray and his wife for well over 30 years so it’s always good to see them.

After nine small brush fires were started in the San Luis Rey riverbed, Oceanside police arrested a man riding a bicycle and wearing a backpack that contained a gas can and a lighter who was seen leaving the area. The suspect, Hansen Frederick, had been seen in the area where the fires started and was arrested after a search by law enforcement, firefighters and a sheriff’s helicopter. The first fire burned approximately one acre of dry brush, coming within about 200 feet of nearby homes, according to Oceanside fire officials.

Just as firefighters were nearly finished extinguishing the fire, another was reported two miles away near Redwood and Cypress streets. Eventually six small fires were found at that location. An additional two more fires were reported at the original Mesa and Foussat location. Firefighters who reached the area quickly reported seeing a man on a bicycle riding away. In all, fire officials said the nine fires burned between three and four acres of brush but did not damage any structures. Discount Grocery Chain to Open in North County
Three new stores will open in North County by the end of September according so spokesperson for Grocery Outlet. The chain opened its first North County store in Oceanside two years ago, and will open three new stores, Poway today (Thursday), in Escondido on Aug. 15 and in San Marcos on Sept. 19.
Company officials say their
prices are as much as 50 percent lower than other supermarkets because Grocery Outlet buys “closeout” items and excess inventory from food companies and farmers.
The new Grocery Outlets opening this summer are between 12,000 and 13,000 square feet, while supermarkets are usually between 40,000 and 50,000 square feet. Each Grocery Outlet store is owned and operated locally by a franchisee.
The Escondido market will fill an empty Mi Pueblo supermarket at 1516 E. Valley Parkway. The San Marcos location will be at 125 S. Rancho Santa Fe Road. Each market will have 25 to 30 employees, some full-time and some part-time, company officials said.
Former NFL player accused in $50M fraud scheme
An insurance broker who was a local high school football standout and former NFL player is one of four people charged by federal officials in an alleged $50 million insurance fraud.
Augus 08, 2013 - Page 5 Byron Frisch, 36, of Carlsbad, was arraigned last Thursday in federal court in San Diego, U.S. Attorney Laura E. Duffy said in a statement.
He was a defensive end from 2000 to 2004, playing for the Tennessee Titans, Dallas Cowboys, New York Giants and San Francisco 49ers.
Frisch graduated from Bonita Vista High School in Chula Vista and played football at Brigham Young University in Utah.
Frisch and three others are charged with conspiracy to commit mail fraud and wire fraud. They are accused of submitting false information to obtain more than $50 million worth of life insurance policies for unqualified applicants who did not plan to pay the policy premiums. They obtained more than $1.6 million and the ability to sell the policies to investors, officials said. The co-defendants recruited elderly individuals to apply for “free” life insurance policies with million-dollar death benefits, then submitted applications with false information about the applicants’ net worth and income, the statement said.

When everybody on earth was dead and waiting to enter Heaven, God appeared and said, "I want the men to make
two lines. One line for the men who were true heads of their household, and the other line for the men who were dominated by their women. I want all the women to report to St. Peter."
Soon, the women were gone, and there were two lines of men. The line of the men who were dominated by their wives was 100 miles long, and in the line of men who truly were heads of their household, there was only one man. God said to the long line, "You men should be ashamed of yourselves; I created you to be the head of your household! You have been disobedient and have not fulfilled your purpose! Of all of you, only one obeyed. Learn from him." God turned to the one man, "How did you manage to be the only one in this line?" The man answered, "My wife told me to stand here."

Most saloon girls were considered "good" women by the men they danced and talked with; often receiving lavish gifts from admirers. In most places the proprieties of treating the saloon girls as "ladies” were strictly observed, as much because Western men tended to revere all women, as because the women or the saloon keeper demanded it. Any man who mistreated these women would quickly become a social outcast, and if he insulted one he would very likely be killed. And, as for the "respectable women,” the saloon girls were rarely interested in the opinions of the drab, hard-working women who set themselves up to judge them. In fact, they were hard pressed to understand why those women didn’t have sense enough to avoid working themselves to death by having babies, tending animals, and helping their husbands try to bring in a crop or tend the cattle. In the early California Gold Rush of 1849, dance halls began to appear and spread throughout later settlements. While these saloons usually offered games of chance, their chief attraction was dancing. The customer generally paid 75¢ to $1.00 for a ticket to dance, with

the proceeds being split between the dance hall girl and the saloon owner. After the dance, the girl would steer the gentleman to the bar, where she would make an additional commission from the sale of a drink.
Dancing usually began about 8:00 p.m., ranging from waltzes to schottisches with each "turn” lasting about 15 minutes. A popular girl would average 50 dances a night, sometimes making more a night than a working man could make in a month. Dance hall girls made enough money that it was very rare for them to double as a prostitute, in fact many former "soiled doves” found they could make more money as a dance hall girl. To the saloon owner, the dance girls were a profitable commodity and gentlemen were discouraged from paying too much attention to any one girl, as dance hall owners lost more women to marriage than in any other way.
Though most patrons respected the girls, violent deaths were one of their biggest professional hazards. More than a hundred cases were documented, but there were, no doubt, probably many more. One saloon girl, who was savagely beaten, had repelled the advances of a drunken customer. When a cowboy approached her, she responded "I don't mind the black eye, but he called me a whore."

owns a business in San Marcos called “My Dog Ate the Couch Upholstery Studio.” (Yes, it is a clever business name.)
I bumped into Eric this past Monday and met Bella, a beautiful 4-yearold long haired Dachshund. People who know me know I’m a soft touch when it comes to animals, particularly dogs. Turns out that I heard a story that sickened me - so much so that I decided you should know about it.
Eric told me Bella is a rescue dog. She was one of three dogs living in Santa Fe, New Mexico, when the monster who owned them tried to feed them all antifreeze. Two of the dogs died but a concerned citizen who was a neighbor and who saw what was going on, rescued Bella before she could ingest the poison. He confiscated Bella but the other two

dogs had died.
Eric received Bella through a mutual friend about two years ago. I doubt you can find a prettier pup. No charges were filed against the idiot who did this . . . but I have my own penalty for people who treat animals this way.
In my mind, a fair and equitable penalty would be to put a bullet in both kneecaps, then a bullet in each ankle, then a bullet in each elbow.
Then, allow charity to kick in and do not fire another bullet - do not administer the coup-de-grace. Let the bastard live the rest of his life suffering the way those poor dogs suffered before they died.
For the life of me, I just cannot imagine anyone in their right mind treating an animal, or another human being like this. People like this have no right to live on this planet and should be exterminated.

Jimmy is the Pet of the Week at your Rancho Coastal Humane Society in Encinitas. He's a 6-1/2 year old, 47 pound, Golden Retriever mix.
Jimmy has a permanent smile on his face. Because of his size and enthusiasm, he’ll do best in a mature home with older kids or teens. He was transferred to RCHS from another animal shelter through the FOCAS program. The $145 adoption fee for Jimmy includes up to date vaccines, veterinary exam, neuter, and microchip. If you can't adopt right now, consider sponsoring a pet until it’s adopted. Meet your new cat, dog, or rabbit at Rancho Coastal Humane Society, 389 Requeza Street in Encinitas. Adoption hours are 11 to 5 Wednesday through Monday. For more information call 760-753-6413.

Lily is a 2-year-old spayed female brown tabby mix, ID 72589. Lily is a nice girl who is very playful and loves to chase feather toys and a mouse on a wire. She likes getting petted and is OK with being picked up. She will climb on your lap if you have treats, but she’s more of a "sit by your side" girl than a "lap cat." She would prefer to be the only feline companion for her new family. Lily is available for adoption at the Escondido Humane Society, 3450 E. Valley Parkway. Her $25 adoption fee in August includes spay, microchip, upto-date vaccinations and vet exam. For more information, call (760) 888-2247 or log on to www.escondidohumanesociety.org.

He usually walks well on a leash but likes to stop and smell everything so a little more leash training would be useful. He is a strong dog so an adopter should test walk him to see if they think he is a good match. Gunnar is very smart and can be very affectionate as he has become with one of the staff at the boarding kennel. He would make a good family pet with proper introductions to other animals and the family members. If you are interested in a classic, adult German Shepherd with a pretty average temperament, call Bruce at the Puppy Coalition Foundation, 760-612-9156.

Elizabeth, as the family lost nearly everything during the Civil War. Towards the end of the conflict, things got worse for Libby when the family farm was raided by Comanche Indians in 1864 and she was kidnapped. She remained with the Comanches for three years until 1867, when her parents paid a ransom for her release.
Through no fault of her own, Mary Elizabeth was seen as a "marked woman” after her release. Though she was only 13 years-old, most people assumed that she had been "used” by the Indians during her captivity and she was shunned and ostracized from society.

The 14 year-old ran away from home and traveled to Abilene, Kansas. With few options to support herself, she became a dance hall girl and prostitute. It was in this role that she earned the nickname "Squirrel Tooth Alice,” for two reasons – one the prominent gap in her teeth, and the second, an odd penchant for making pets of prairie dogs, which she kept on a collar and leash. While in Abilene, she met gambler and gunman, William "Texas Billy” Thompson, brother to more famous Ben Thompson. Before long, the pair became a couple and Libby followed Billy

Update - PCs, Smart Phones and Tablets.
PC sales (notebooks and desktops) have fallen for the 5th straight quarter. Several factors are to blame. Tablets and smart phones continue to replace notebooks for many low task mobile applications. Desktop sales have slowed because Windows 8 has a user interface (Metro) that most users don’t like. Since Windows 8 isn’t faster or more capable than Windows 7 or XP for most user needs, many desktop and notebook owners are either holding on to their older PCs. Some are having new PCs built for them with Windows XP or Windows 7 installed as the operating system. Here at the Computer Factory, of the two hundred PCs we’ve built so far this year, nearly half were with Windows XP and the rest Windows 7. No one has asked us to build a
Support for Our Nation’s Veterans
The brave men and women who served to protect our nation often struggle to find civilian jobs. Since 9/11, the unemployment rate for veterans has been three percent higher than for non-veterans.
This month, a report revealed that the national unemployment rate for veterans has declined, and rates for veterans and non-veterans are nearly the same, around 7.4%. While this rate remains too high and more must be done to encourage national and statewide job growth, programs that support veterans are showing some success at reducing joblessness. Many local non-profit and government organizations
Windows 8 desktop yet although we’d be happy to do it.
The statistics on PC operating systems in use worldwide as of last month is as follows: Microsoft and Apple share 99% of PC operating systems with Microsoft having 92% and Apple 7%. The details break down as follows: Windows 7 (44%), Windows XP (37%), Windows 8 (6%), Windows Vista (5%) and the three current versions of Apple’s IOS (7%).
In recognition of the fact that many business and home users plan to stay with Windows XP past the official “end of support” date in April of 2014, last week Microsoft announced that it will continue offering “downgrade rights” from Win 7 to XP through 2020. That means that any business or individual who buys a Win 7 PC with a OS level of “Professional” or above is entitled to a free Windows XP. The same is true of “downgrade rights” from Win 8 Pro to Win 7 Pro.
quarters but Apples market share dropped from 17% to 13%. At the same time Android based smart phones increased their market share from 70% to 80%, presently outselling iPhones five to one. Microsoft increased its tiny share of the smart phone market from 3.5% to 4%.
tablet sales surged from 18.5 million units to 34.6 million units, a gain in market share from 51.4% to 67%. Microsoft’s “Surface” tablet, introduced early this year, garnered a 2nd quarter 2013 market share of 2.3%.

million. Ironically, our slow recovery means that thousands will soon lose their extended federal unemployment benefits. Despite improving unemployment numbers, California still ranks among the nation’s top ten worst states.
In tablets the Apple/Android operating system dominance is 98%. Here again we find Android surging, Apple faltering and Microsoft starting to make inroads. Apple’s tablet shipments fell from 17 million units in the second quarter of 2012 to 14.6 million in the second quarter of 2013. Their market share dropped from 47% to 28%. Over the same two quarters Android
The pattern is clear. In the mobile arena Google is doing to Apple what Microsoft did to Apple in the computer business. Apple will always be around. There is an “Apple cult” that will continue to cling to Apples outrageous pricing and second rate technology. Apple will continue to act out in its narcissistic, control freak corporate culture insuring itself a unique niche in the dustbin of high tech history. The real battle brewing looks to be between Microsoft and Google.
Google and Apple continue to increase their collective dominance in the smart phone business. Between them they account for 92% of smart phone operating systems. The 183 million global sales of smart phones in the second quarter of 2013 was nearly a 70% increase over the 109 million phones sold in the same quarter last year. Apple’s iPhone sales increased from 26 to 31 million phones between those two
work diligently to provide aide to returning veterans. After sacrificing for our country, they deserve all the national and state resources we can provide.
In addition to improving access to jobs, the California legislature is working to increase affordable housing opportunities for veterans. Currently, I am a co-author of Assembly Speaker Perez’s legislation, AB 639, which will develop housing for veterans who are at risk of becoming homeless. A job and a roof are the least we can do for our veterans.

Our state’s economy seems to be improving, slowly. California has a small budget surplus this year as a result of higher than expected tax revenues and recent reports show our unemployment rate has decreased slightly to 8.5 percent. Our small recovery, combined with the economic crisis in Europe, means that California will probably regain its position as the eighth-ranked economy in the world. Our 2012 GDP gain of 3.5 percent put us into a tie with Minnesota for the fifthlargest increase in the nation behind North Dakota, Texas, Oregon and Washington.
On the other hand, over 1.5 million persons remain unemployed and countless more underemployed. Sadly, the number of Californians who have exhausted all benefits as a result of long-term unemployment has surpassed one
While solutions to our state’s economic problems are debatable, the fact that our financial underpinnings are still shaky is readily apparent. We cannot spend or tax our way to prosperity. Nor can we assume that the current economic recovery is permanent and that future tax revenues will continue to increase. In fact, tax increases this year will most likely be short-lived and should not be counted on in the future. Spending restraint and prudent stewardship of our scarce financial resources should always be the order of the day in Sacramento.

However, by 1872, they were back in Kansas, this time in Ellsworth, where Billy made his living gambling and Libby continuing to work the saloons. The following year, Libby gave birth to her first child and the two got married.
In August of 1873, Billy Thompson, in a state of drunkenness, shot and killed Ellsworth town Sheriff Chauncey Whitney. Billy was arrested but soon bailed out and the couple fled back to Texas. Amazingly, the shooting was ruled an accident and Billy was

‘Wild, Wild West’ Cont. from Page 13
daughters followed her into prostitution. Sometime later, she moved to Palmdale, California. She lived a long life before finally dying at the age of 98 on April 13, 1953 at the Sunbeam Rest Home in Los Angeles, California. And so, we end our visit with just a small number of “working girls” from the Wild, Wild West. There are, literally, hundreds of similar colorful stories awaiting to be discovered and read.
To learn more and read more, we commend you to Kathy Weiser’s Legends of the America, a website that provided much of the source material for this story. The website is located here: http://www.legendsofamerica.c om/oldwest.html
One must remember that there were a number of good, honest, God-fearing women who came to the Wild West . . . and who did not become dance hall girls, nor prostitutes. They, however, tend to not be nearly as interesting as the ras-
Our “rascals” have colorful names, colorful histories, some of whom were, no doubt, very bad people . . . others of whom were in “the profession” out of economic necessity and were, in fact, rather good people. A tip of a Stetson to all of the “soiled doves” who helped make the West an interesting place.

Pastor Richard Huls Retired
Recently, I attended a reunion of my seminary graduate class in Michigan. We shared about our families, the work of ministry from which we had retired, present activities, and what it meant to get older. I noticed how the conversation began to focus on health issues, limitations, and the prospect of death. Later, I reflected on my own life and upon how and when “that moment” would come. I wondered if most people thought about it. I inquired of a number of friends and family if they spend any time thinking about their death. Some thought it “out of order,” because they either did not want to admit they were going to die or were simply afraid of it. One said, “...
being born and dying are two of life’s most natural experiences,” a bit different from the death and taxes issue. My aunt, who is ninety, simply said, “When it comes, it comes.” Another said, “It seems strange to think I will die. It is foreign to me.” A good friend of mine, who has cancer, said, “I’m not giving in to .” I’m going to make it to a hundred!” The answers to my inquiries continues to be varied, but the one that perhaps was the most religious is, “I’m not afraid to die. I’m going to heaven, so the sooner I die, the qauicker I will be there.”
In my ministry, as a pastor, I am often called to officiate at funerals. It is a humbling experience to say a few words about one who has lived, worked, loved, and then is no more. What remains? Generally, loved ones needing comfort. Also, there is a deep respect for the one who has died. I felt this awesome respect for my deceased parents as I contemplated their lives when back in Michigan, visitng their graves. TheBible says, “Death is an enemy.” While it is sad to lose those we love to death, it is sadder to forget their lives and all they have shared.
