Volume 43- No. 35

By Dan A. D’Amelio

Some people call it an “RV.” Others call it a “rig.” Our grandchildren called it “a house on wheels.”

After we retired we lived in the house on wheels for five years, from 1992-1997. In the year we started out, we knew nothing about an RV. We bought one on the suggestion of a friend who had one and my wife Fanny and I thought it would be a good way to see the U.S. At one of the places where we shopped around for an RV, a salesman asked, “How well do you two get along?”

It was a disconcerting question and for a moment, I envisioned our getting a divorce only a week down the road.

As it turned out, Fanny adapted to the rig’s close-quarter environment so well that I teased her that she must have been a submariner in another life. The Paper - 760.747.7119


August 29 2013

The RV we bought for $23,000 was a twenty-seven foot, threeyear old Fleetwood, Jamboree model, with a powerful 460 Ford engine, which got us up the steepest hills with no difficulty. In fact, our rig got us to the summit of Montana’s steep 7,000-foot Bitterroot Mountain with no difficulty (where we plummeted down a nine-and-ahalf percent grade without screaming even once.) Our house on wheels, like many RV’s, had a holding tank for sink and shower water and another tank for toilet water. (There are facilities at campgrounds for emptying the tanks.)

Our rig also had a 4,000 watt gas generator, as well as an “on board” fresh water system and automatic pump, which allowed us to live comfortably even in the middle of nowhere. It also had many of the ameni-

ties of a regular house: besides a toilet and shower, a fourburner range, an oven, microwave, refrigerator-freezer, a thermostat-controlled furnace (which along with the hot water, worked off propane) and an air conditioner—actually two air conditioners, one in the cab and the other in the coach (living quarters). Living in a coach area that’s about 20 feet long (not counting the cab and motor) and about eight feet wide would seem very confining. It wasn’t. We soon adapted to the RV’s scale; in fact, after living in an RV for a while, a regular home seemed huge. In our first weeks of RVing we stayed at privately owned campgrounds, thinking that was our only option. But then at an information center on I80 in Iowa, we learned about RV camping at state parks. And in our travels, we stayed

mostly at state parks, for two good reasons: the rates for camping at privately owned campgrounds ranged from $18 to $25; the rates at state parks averaged $14 a day. And while rates for both kinds of campgrounds included water and electricity, the state parks had attractive settings (woods and meadows) and a good deal of room between rigs.

In some states there is also RV camping available at U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ parks and recreation areas, located by dammed rivers and lakes, with clean facilities and a fee of $10-$12 a night. In our travels, we relied heavily on the publications of the American Automobile Association (AAA) that publishes a “Camp Book,” which has information about privately owned and state park RV campgrounds in every state, including amenities offered,

directions to the campgrounds and the fee.

The AAA also publishes a “Tour Book” that had information about cities and towns and their points of interest. The books are updated and published each year.

While staying at state parks, we continued heading west to Jackson, Wyoming, where I would receive a spur award from the Western Writers of America for an article I wrote about the major contribution Chinese laborers made to the building of our first transcontinental railroad. (The article appeared in the February 21, 2013, issue of The Paper). At the hotel where the spur awards in fiction and nonfiction were to be presented, men came into the lobby wearing cowboy hats and boots and introduced themselves with a hearty, “Howdy, I’m Tex ____,” and “I’m Tex___, and “I’m Tex____.” So I decided to get into it, too, going about the lobby saying, “Howdy. I’m Tex D’Amelio.”

The next day, we noted in our AAA “Tour Book” that there

was an immigrant museum in Casper, Wyoming; so, we headed there. At the museum we saw carts used by immigrants in the 1850s to carry their possessions. Often children rode on the carts, which were pulled by their fathers. Over 300,000 immigrants traveled through that part of the country, pulling carts for many miles.

Outside the museum was a plaque on which an eye-witness reported: “I often saw fathers pulling the carts, children perched atop their possessions, starting out in the morning, and before the end of a day, some collapsing and dying from exhaustion.” As we continued making like gypsies, we discovered that the best campgrounds were in Tennessee, Mississippi. Alabama, Oklahoma, Iowa, and Oregon. But it was Brookings, Oregon, that became our favorite place to camp. We spent a month at a beachfront campground in Brookings, for a fee of $25, and here is an excerpt from my daily log: July 9 Fanny and I are sitting outside by our rig, facing the

The pastor called on him and the little boy said, "I know that if you have a resurrection that lasts more than four hours you are supposed to call the doctor."

It took more than ten minutes for the congregation to settle down enough for the service to continue. HOLY HUMOR

During these serious and troubled times, people of all faiths should remember these four great religious truths: 1. Muslims do not recognize Jews as God's Chosen People. 2. Jews do not recognize Jesus as the Messiah. 3. Protestants do not recognize the Pope as the leader of the Christian world. 4. Baptists do not recognize each other at the liquor store. GOOD SAMARITAN

A Sunday school teacher was telling her class the story of the Good Samaritan.

She asked the class, "If you saw a person lying on the roadside, all wounded and bleeding, what would you do?"

A thoughtful little girl broke the hushed silence, "I think I'd throw up." DID NOAH FISH?

ocean, the surf coming on shore about 100 yards from us, along the crescent-shaped beach. As I write this, I can hear the rhythmic surf; last night, just before falling asleep, I heard a buoy bell—it sounded like a church bell. I just saw geese flying low over the ocean, and pelicans swooping down over the water, fishing with their long, triangular beaks. One day, Fanny and I went to the Brookings Library, and there we saw, by the librarian’s desk, a sword in a display case. The librarian told me it was a Japanese samurai sword. She said it was a gift from a Japanese pilot.

Intrigued, I asked how the sword ended up in the library, and from the library staff, I learned the story. In the morning of Sept. 9, 1942, a Japanese plane dropped two incendiary bombs on the slopes of a hill some five miles east of Brookings. By dropping the bombs in the wilderness area, the Japanese intended to start a forest fire that would engulf the area. But the smoke from the fire

"No," replied Johnny. "How could he, with just two worms. THE LORD IS MY SHEPHERD

A Sunday School teacher decided to have her young class memorize one of the most quoted passages in the Bible Psalm 23. She gave the youngsters a month to learn the chapter. Little Rick was excited about the task - but he just couldn't remember the Psalm. After much practice, he could barely get past the first line. On the day that the kids were scheduled to recite Psalm 23 in front of the congregation, Ricky was so nervous. When it was his turn, he stepped up to the microphone and said proudly, "The Lord is my Shepherd, and that's all I need to know. UNANSWERED PRAYER

The preacher's 5 year-old daughter noticed that her father always paused and bowed his head for a moment before starting his sermon. One day, she asked him why. "Well, Honey," he began, proud that his daughter was so observant of his messages. "I'm asking the Lord to help me preach a good sermon."

"How come He doesn't answer it?" she asked. BEING THANKFUL

was spotted by two lookouts and fire fighters were able to bring the fire under control. The small Japanese plane had been assembled from the deck of an offshore submarine. It was the first time an enemy aircraft had bombed the U.S. mainland.

Two weeks later the same plane dropped some incendiary bombs near Port Orford, some 40 miles north of Brookings, but they did not ignite.

The pilot of the plane was Nobuo Fujita, and after the war he visited Brookings a number of times. On his first visit, in 1962, Fujita apologized for the bombing and expressed his wish for continued peace between the two nations; and he brought with him a 400year-old family samurai sword, which he presented to town officials, as a traditional gesture of peace. On the 50th anniversary of the bombing, 1992, Fujita (who died in 1997) returned to Brookings, and at the bombing site, he planted a redwood tree seedling as another symbol of peace between the nations.

A Rabbi said to a precocious six-year-old boy, "So your mother says your prayers for you each night? That's very commendable. What does she say?" The little boy replied, "Thank God he's in bed!" ALL MEN / ALL GIRLS

When my daughter, Kelli, said her bedtime prayers, she would bless every family member, every friend, and every animal (current and past). For several weeks, after we had finished the nightly prayer, Kelli would say, "And all girls."

This soon became part of her nightly routine, to include this closing. My curiosity got the best of me and I asked her, "Kelli, why do you always add the part about all girls?" Her response, "Because everybody always finish their prayers by saying 'All Men'! SAY A PRAYER

Fujita’s sword is still on display at the library.

While still camped at Brookings, Fanny and I walked to town one day—needed a few supplies, and rather than take the rig—which would have meant unhooking the water and power lines from the rig, we thought we’d walk. It was a little more than a mile, a pleasant walk, although some of it was up hill. When we finished our shopping and were passing a row of stores, we were greeted by a delicious aroma from a pizzeria. Although we were already loaded down, temptation was too much. It was only after we had gotten the pizza, which we wanted to bring back with us, that the problem hit us. Fanny had two plastic sacks of groceries, one for each hand. I also had two. I could carry both sacks in one hand, leaving one hand free for the pizza. But how could I hold the pizza level with one hand? Fanny looked at the boxed pizza, then said, “I have an idea.”

“Hey, you know what I saw…?” For years, it would be the talk of the town. “How you doing, Dan?”

“Fine,” I said with just a touch of sarcasm—I admired Fanny’s ingenuity, but I was the one carrying the pizza and looking ridiculous. “I know you feel embarrassed, dear,” Fanny said, “but people will just think you had an accident.” I grunted.

We reached the corner. The traffic light changed. We started across. It was a wide avenue—four lanes. I felt exposed, as if I was on stage.

People in the cars waiting for the green light were staring. I could imagine what they were saying. “Mommy, what is that?” “…I don’t know.” “Was he Mommy?”




“No. Guess something real bad happened to his arm…Poor man.”

She asked the man in the pizzeria for a plastic sack and put the pizza box in the sack. Then she said, “Take off your belt, Dan.”

When we reached the curb, Fanny said, “Want to rest, Dan?

She nodded.

“Actually—my left arm is getting plenty of rest.”

“You serious?”

I took off my belt, and Fanny looped it through the open handles of the sack, making it into a sling, which she placed over my shoulder.

“I see your experience as a school nurse has come in handy,” I teased her. Fanny grinned. “Yep.”

So, we started off, Fanny carrying her two sacks, and me carrying a sack in my right hand. (I had combined both of my sacks into one). And on the other side of my body, a “pizza sling”—the pizza sticking out horizontally from my hip, with my left arm resting on it. I looked like I had broken my arm and it was in a special sling. I looked absolutely ridiculous!

But I consoled myself with the thought that we were strangers in town—and yet I could imagine people saying,

“No—you?” “I’m okay.”

“It does make a nice arm rest,” Fanny said.

August 29, 2013 - Page 3 “What’s the matter?”

A young couple were coming up the street, talking. They apparently hadn’t seen us yet.

“Gosh, Fanny,” I said, still holding up my pants with my right hand, the left hand on the pizza, pointing to a tree. “What am I gonna do?” “Try to look natural.” “What?”

“Just move aside, Dan—let ’em pass,” Fanny said calmly, as the couple neared us.

“Sure,” I whispered. “You could look calm, while acting like Florence Nightingale, taking a believe-it-or not medical case for an outing.”

“Hello,” Fanny said brightly as the couple came abreast of us. I grunted and took a sudden interest in a sea gull in the sky. As they passed, I could hear broken, muffled laughter. And so, we continued on, above us sea gulls squawking overhead (or maybe they were laughing). And that night, the surf softly splashing on the beach, we ate our well-deserved pizza.

A frequent contributor to The Paper, Dan A. D'Amelio is a retired journalist and teacher and author of four books. He served as a reporter for two Connecticut newspapers and on the editorial staff of CBS-TV News in New York City.

“Maybe we could patent it,” I said.

I put the sack of groceries down and adjusted my pants. “Wish we had brought our camera today,” Fanny said. “The kids will never believe this.”

“What makes you think I’d want my picture taken? —Uh, oh.”

Red Light Districts

When Escondido leaders first proposed red light cameras, according to news releases in the UT, the emphasis was on safety, reducing accidents at major intersections. Some residents scoffed that the real reason was profit from fines. More news releases claimed these objections were off base and stressed the need to eliminate terrible accidents caused by inattentive drivers. The red light cameras were installed and even allowing for an occasional rear end crash blamed on the cameras’ existence the accident rate plummeted.

As the accident rate declined so did income from fines. Apparently red light cameras were so successful they actually now cost the city money. Well, so what? Policemen cost money, firemen cost money, city government costs money. But we don’t see any hue or cry to rid ourselves of them. The current effort to eliminate red light cameras will, if approved, prove to be “Penny wise and pound foolish.” I pray that it‘s not the death or dismemberment of some member of my family that proves that point. /s/Sid Colquitt Escondido, CA.

We turned at the corner and started down a steep street that led to the beach and to where we were camped with other RVers.

At this point, I was starting to get used to my pizza sling and, away from the main street now, I didn’t feel so embarrassed by it. But then something terrible happened. My pants started to slip.

Letters to the Editor

Subscription Farms

Mr. Davis,

He was a teacher of creative writing at Middlesex College, Middletown, Connecticut, and at the University of New Haven, Connecticut.

In Long Island, New York, he was a teacher of children with severe mental handicaps, and in 2005 he was in Who's Who in America, cited for his pioneering work in the education of severely mentally retarded children.

The news article named "Subscription Farm in the works for San Marcos" in the 8/15/13 issue left me wondering.

The article begins with "officials plan on using vacant city land," and it ends with "the difference in quality and nutrition is often quite obvious." That's quite a leap!

As reported, the produce will be delivered to customers' homes or they will be able to pick it up at the farm. If so,

Red Lights Go Bye-Bye in Escondido

The vote was 5-0. Unanimous. On Wednesday, August 21st, the Escondido City Council agreed to not renew its contract with Redflex Traffic Systems of Phoenix after it expires in December. Newly appointed Chief of Police Craig Carter affirmed that the police department would stop issuing red light camera citations effective immediately. Escondido joins a long list of cities that have eliminated the unpopular devices.

Escondido is one of many cities who have given the boot to the sometimes controversial system. San Diego, El Cajon, Poway, are among those cities that no longer will have the system in place. Cities that do continue the system include Oceanside, Vista, Encintas, Solana Beach, and Del Mar. Escondido has been losing roughly $150,000 per year on its program as the number of citations has steadily dwindled, from 6,500 in 2007 to about 3,000 last year.

Mayor Sam Abed said his vote was based more on safety than on the city losing money or frequent complaints that the cam-

On Tuesday, August 20th, at 12:24 p.m., the City of Carlsbad Police Department received a 9-1-1 call from a resident on the 1900 block of Dove Lane. The resident stated she had just chased an intruder from her apartment. The subject had fled to a nearby residence. Police officers responded and contacted the subject inside his residence.

Oceanside City Manager Resigns

Mayor Jim Wood said he was “shocked.” The rest of the Oceanside City Council had nothing but praise for Oceanside City Manager Peter Weiss who announced on Wednesday, August 21st that he was resigning effective at the end of the year.

As city manager, Weiss earns a salary of roughly $223,000 per year, plus benefits and other perks. His resignation is effective Dec. 27.

Given that many enterprises compete to sell produce, is it any of the city's business to be picking the winners? The article states that "the cost is slightly higher." Well, is anyone surprised that cost goes up whenever government gets involved?

Weiss said the city is in a far better position than it was several years ago — when officials were projecting annual deficits of $9 million or more.

Murder Suspect Facing Trial

John Carlo Monta has been charged with the murder of Joanne Javier, a dental assistant who was found stabbed to death in her SUV near the dental office where she worked.

The slaying occurred in November. If convicted, Monta faces 26 years to life in prison for first-degree murder and, as alleged, he used a knife. Vista Superior Court Judge Timothy Casserly order the 29year-old to stand trial.

The dentist for whom she worked, Ida Alfonso, was the one who found her body in her SUV. About 10 p.m. that night, police arrested Monta at his Linda Vista apartment. He has been held without bail since. Motive is believed to be because Javier wanted to end the relationship.

The Doctor is In! wearers in the U.S. alone) sometimes results in a less than comfortable appliance requiring us to “adapt” to it, and often these dentures can be unstable. Is there some better alternative that can give us a stable replacement of our missing teeth but not cost an arm and a leg? Price is the million dollar question for those who are retired and on a fixed income. Fortunately, now there is an alternative that provides us with stable dentition without the tremendous cost of having fixed bridges done, or an array of implants.

Implant Retained Overdentures for the Cost-Conscious Patient

As the Baby Boomer generation gets older our health-care costs increase, including dental care. With the advent of reliable implants we can “rebuild” our mouths, however, at times with considerable expense. On the other hand, replacement of missing teeth with a denture (of which there are 55 million

Implant Retained Overdentures

These will cost more than a conventional denture, but run much less than fixed bridges that require many implants. Normally only 4 (sometimes 5 to 6) implants are used to support an overdenture which lowers your cost dramatically. The denture is specially designed to lock onto the implants so that they won’t come lose when you’re eating, laughing, etc. (Use your imagination!) Yet, they can be removed for cleaning and are very hygienic. Actually, they’re easier to keep

Commemorate that tragic day of September 11, 2001. The horrific events that struck this nation on 9/11 will forever be etched in this nation’s memory. We will never forget! The commemoration that weekend will begin with a 24-hour vigil, from 7pm Saturday until 8am Sunday morning, in and around the flagpole in the church courtyard at Faith Lutheran Church, 700 E. Bobier Drive, Vista. The 19 firefighters of the HotShot Crew who perished in the Yarnell Hill Fire in Prescott, Arizona, will be honored. The altar will be a tribute to those 19 men, those who perished on 9/11 and the wars fought in Iraq and Afghanistan. This is open to the public and all police, fire, EMT personnel and military are encouraged to attend. The Sunday event begins with church services at 8am and 10:30am. Ceremonies begin at 11:30am, followed by a BBQ and activities for everyone, young and old. The ceremony is a salute to the men and women of our Armed Forces, Police, Fire and EMT units locally, and will include a flag display, bagpipe music, a Colors Presentation, folding of the flag, and the ringing of a Commemorative Bell to honor the 19 firefighters. This will be followed by a BBQ to feed 500-800 people, a static display of police, fire and EMT vehicles, a hosted beer and wine garden, music, and fun activities for children of all ages. More than 500 attended last year. For questions, contact the event coordinator, Dick Dinse at 760.583.3087, email, or contact Kelli Coletti in the church office at 760.724.7700 New Season for Hidden Valley Community Concert Association Series – The HVCCA kicks off their five concert series for the 2013-2014 season on September 8, at 2pm, with

clean than fixed bridges supported by implants. Less Bone Requirements Drive Down Costs

When doing implant supported crowns and bridges, we need solid bone structure throughout the arch, and frequently have to charge our patients for bone “augmentation” (addition of bone) to areas with insufficient bone to support the implant structure. Implant Retained Overdentures require using less implants for support and we can “adjust” the placement of our implants into areas where the bone is most dense, often reducing or eliminating bone augmentation. Since the cost of augmentation can run anywhere from $450-$800 or more per unit, that’s a big advantage both by avoiding surgery … and cutting costs!

Care and Handling

Overdentures are “removable.” Most of our patients don’t like the idea of “removable” teeth. However, if you’re already in that boat, or headed that way, remember it’s easier and more thorough to remove and brush your teeth and gums than it is to clean a fixed bridge in your mouth. As for placing them back into your mouth, overdentures literally “snap” back into place with stability and security. Price In the final analysis, if you’re faced with some major rehabilitation of your dentition or in need of a stable denture, Implant Retained Overdentures is an attractive option! Cost is almost always a serious consideration whenever it comes to choosing your dental treatment options!

San Marcos • Mayor Jim Desmond San Marcos is Back to School

As the summer winds down, San Marcos students are headed back to school. With elementary, middle and high schools, along with Cal State San Marcos and Palomar College back in session, I-15 and SR-78 travelers can expect increased traffic delays during their daily commute.

While the increase in traffic congestion is familiar to City residents, students and commuters alike, the City of San Marcos is pleased to report that relief is on the way. In the City’s ongoing

efforts to get motorists moving and improve the dubious SR-78 bottleneck, more than $41 million of construction and several roadway improvement projects have been completed this past year. Improvements include the replacement of the Nordahl Bridge interchange, auxiliary lane additions and other widening projects. Residents and students can also utilize the Reynold Bascomb Borden Bridge that connects Woodward Street with Twin Oaks Valley Road.

During the school year, drive with caution and set alarm clocks a little earlier, providing ample time to reach your destination safely and on time.

When Pour PC Needs Help, Notebooks - Conclusion

Three quarters of the problems we see on notebook and desktop PCs are software related. There are no significant differences between notebooks and desktops when it comes to diagnosing and fixing software problems. There are big differences however when it comes to hardware replacement. Hard drives and memory are no more difficult to replace on a notebook than on a desktop but most other hardware repairs involve more labor and expense.

Both notebook and desktop motherboards contain the electronics that manage video, audio, WiFi, Ethernet, USB, card readers, HDMI and other important functions. When one of these functions fail on a desktop motherboard, it

Among the Hundreds, a Few Good Bills Stand Out

There are 12 business days left for the legislature to vote on hundreds of bills and 32 business days left for the Governor to sign or veto them. Unfortunately, during this busy legislative period, most of the bills that Senators and Assemblymembers vote on will do little to better the lives of Californians. However, there are a significant bills that improve education grams, if signed by Governor.

can usually be restored cheaply and easily by inserting a “card” with the appropriate function (video, sound Wi-Fi etc) in one of the open “slots” on the motherboard. Notebook PCs don’t have open slots so when a function fails, the entire motherboard must be replaced. Motherboard replacement typically involves, significant downtime and several hundred dollars. If your desktop keyboard breaks you simply replace it. On your notebook it’s much more expensive and complicated. When your desktop screen fails you just plug in another one. Replacing a notebook screen takes more time and money. Notebooks are also far more vulnerable to serious failure and repair expense. Hinges, power connections and AC adaptors wear and break. Optical drives (DVDs) are flimsy and easy to break. Hard drives often fail because users will shut the lid and move the notebook not realizing that the hard drive has not shut down. Any bumping or jostling can cause a spinning hard drive to fail.

Warranty work on notebooks is done at the manufacturer’s repair depot. The quality of post-sales customer service varies greatly among the different notebook brands. Here at the Computer Factory, we do post-warranty repairs. Sometimes users bring notebooks to us prior to shipping them back under warranty so that we can

Another education bill, AB 166 (Hernandez), will require financial literacy to be emphasized within high school curriculum. Many of today’s young adults lack familiarity with tasks like establishing savings accounts, building credit, and planning for retirement.

While there are hundreds of unnecessary bills, these are examples of good policies that will benefit Californians.

copy their files or verify that the problem is hardware. The repair depot will usually reload the factory set-up on the hard drive first to eliminate the possibility of software issues.

Our experience with post-warranty notebook PCs leads us to some recommendations relative to product quality and service. In our experience, cheap notebooks are simply no bargain. It costs the same to repair a $300 notebook as a $600 notebook but the cheap notebook will have far more problems. In addition to the cheap components, other problems are thin cases, flimsy hinges, inadequate strain relief and minimal shock protection. A “cheapie” may be adequate if used

as a desktop but it won’t hold up as a portable.

In our experience the brands to avoid are Dell, HP, Gateway, EMachine and the super cheap Acers and Lenovos. The higher-end models of Lenovo and Acer however, are quite good. In our experience the best in quality and reliability are ASUS, Toshiba, Samsung and Sony. Our favorite is ASUS. Of the scores we have sold under factory warranty, only one has ever had to use it. When a serious post warranty problem requires factory repair, the ASUS service depot in LA turns repair jobs around in a couple of days and that makes us look good.

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING (City Council) The San Marcos City Council will hold the following public hearing in the City Council Chambers, San Marcos City Hall, 1 Civic Center Drive, at 6:00 p.m. Tuesday, September 10, 2013. Case No: P13-0041 / ND 13-005 Application of: City of San Marcos – Climate Action Plan Request: The City is processing a Climate Action Plan that is a required implementation measure under the recently adopted General Plan in February 2012. The Climate Action plan is a long range effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from community activities and City government operations within San Marcos. A public workshop was conducted on July 11, 2013 to obtain community feedback on the proposed Climate Action Plan. The CAP is a programmatic, longrange planning document to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from community activities and municipal operations within San Marcos to support the State’s efforts under Executive Order S-3-05 and Assembly Bill (AB) 32 and to mitigate San Marcos’ climate-related impacts. Specifically, the CAP does the following: Summarizes the results of the City of San Marcos GHG Emissions Inventory Update (GHG Emissions Inventory) (2013), which identifies the major sources and quantities of GHG emissions produced within San Marcos and forecasts how these emissions may change over time. Identifies the quantity of GHG emissions that San Marcos will need to reduce to meet the city’s targets 15 percent below 2005 levels by the year 2020 and 28 percent below 2005 levels by 2030, consistent with AB 32 and working toward the long-term goal identified in Executive Order S-3-05. Identifies policies and programs (collectively referred to as “measures”) and implementation actions to reduce GHG emissions, including performance standards which, if implemented, would collectively achieve the specified emissions reduction targets. Identifies measures to help San Marcos prepare for anticipated climate change impacts. Sets forth procedures to implement, monitor, and verify the effectiveness of the CAP measures and adapt efforts moving forward. The CAP utilizes 2005 as the baseline year and 2020 and 2030 as the target years for achieving reductions. The 2020 target year corresponds with the target year identified in AB 32. The 2030 target year corresponds with the horizon year of the San Marcos General Plan. The Draft Climate Action Plan is available on the City’s website (, at the City Hall Development Services counter and at the San Diego County Library-San Marcos Branch. Environmental Determination: ND 13-005. For further information, contact Garth Koller, Principal Planner at (760) 744-1050 extension 3231. The City is closed every other Friday. Location of Property: City-wide Planning Commission Action: Not required.
