Volume 43- No. 36
By Mark Carlson
San Diego is only about 100 miles from the dream factory of Hollywood. And in the last 90 years scores of major motion pictures and television shows have been filmed in our own city, not just ‘Simon & Simon,’ but blockbusters like Top Gun and Some Like it Hot made our little city famous to the rest of the country.
It actually started in 1923 during the short-lived silent film era. Out on San Diego Bay, the script of an adventure thriller called ‘The Eleventh Hour’ required a sequence in which pilot Dick Kerwood would fly a J-1 Standard biplane over a The Paper - 760.747.7119

surfaced submarine, whereupon the sub would fire upon the plane, causing the latter to explode in mid-air.
The U.S. Navy provided an SClass submarine from the Point Loma base. Kerwood set the plane with a charge of dynamite that was supposed to explode ten seconds after he set the timer and bailed out. However, when he reached 2,800 feet over the anchored sub, Kerwood set the timer and began to climb out. The plane suddenly exploded. He was stunned almost to the point of unconsciousness but managed to pull the ripcord and drop into San Diego Bay. The film also featured a young man
named Alan Hale, who would become one of Hollywood's most beloved character actors.
Three years later, the man who made The Hunchback of Notre Dame and The Phantom of the Opera into movie legends came to the Marine Corps Recruit Depot to star in Tell it to the Marines. Silent film icon Lon Chaney portrayed Sergeant O’Hara, a ramrod-straight nononsense Marine drill instructor. In one of the few roles in which Chaney wore no makeup, he fitted the role of the grizzled career Marine better than any actor since, including R. Lee Ermey himself. In fact, Chaney was made an honorary Marine and a USMC honor
guard was present at his funeral. The early sequences were filmed at the Santa Fe train station and at the MCRD. The film provides a rare glimpse of San Diego in the Roaring Twenties. One of the main actors even refers to going down to ‘Tia Juana to the races,’ a longtime tradition to San Diegans. In 1934 Jimmy Cagney, who was riding the crest of his popularity, arrived in San Diego to act in two Warner militarythemed movies. Directed by Lloyd Bacon, Devil Dogs of the Air tells the story of a cocky exhibition pilot named Tommy O’Toole, who lands his colorful

plane at the Marine airfield at NAS North Island to join up with his old buddy, Lt. Brannigan, played by Pat O’Brien. Right away, O’Toole’s devil-may-care attitude causes problems for the straight-laced Brannigan, who tries to rein him in. But in the end, Tommy realizes the value of teamwork and saves Brannigan’s life in a daring air rescue. There are several shots of downtown San Diego and Coronado in 1934. Devil Dogs was a fun film for fans of the Cagney/O’Brien team, but it has more to offer audiences interested in 1930s aircaft. Principal photography used Marine fighter squadron VMA-231’s Vought O2U Corsairs. Various shots reveal Loening OL-8 amphibian biplanes, Boeing F4B or P-12 pursuit planes and a Ford Trimotor. O’Toole’s plane is a Travel Air D-4000. A Douglas Dolphin amphibian can be seen in the background. But most unusual of all is the oneof-a-kind Curtiss RC-1 Kingburd air transport. Right on the heels of Devil Dogs was a carbon copy film called Here Comes the Navy, also directed by Bacon and starring Cagney and O’Brien. Cagney is a pugnacious shipyard worker named Chesty

Mick, from Dublin , appeared on 'Who Wants To Be A Millionaire' and towards the end of the program had already won 500,000 euros.
"You've done very well so far," said Chris Tarrant, the show's presenter, "but for a million euros you've only got one lifeline left, phone a friend. Everything is riding on this question. Will you go for it?"
"Sure," said Mick. "I'll have a go!"

O’Connor who has a personal grudge against Chief Biff Martin (O’Brien). O’Connor joins the navy just to get on board Martin’s ship so they can duke it out. But in the end they find respect and friendship in the Navy.
The female love interest is a pretty young blonde named Gloria Stuart. You may not recognize her name or even her face in Here Comes the Navy, but her greatest fame on film came almost 66 years later when she played the old Rose in James Cameron’s blockbuster Titanic.
drama about the Navy’s efforts to cure the problems of highaltitude sickness. Starring the former swashbuckling Errol Flynn as Flight Surgeon Lt. Lee and the quintessential father figure Fred MacMurray as the hard-bitten and sarcastic Commander Joe Blake, Dive Bomber is one of the best patriotic aviation films ever made. In fact it was the Top Gun of its time. It was filmed on location at NAS North Island, the Navy Base, the Hotel Del Coronado and the Cabrillo Monument on Pt. Loma.
Just prior to the United States’ entry into World War II, Michael Curtiz directed Dive Bomber, a semi-documentary
Since the United States was gearing up for imminent war, the Navy and Marine Corps aviation squadrons were involved in extensive training operations. When Curtiz and his production crew arrived in San Diego for eight weeks of filming they had to work around the training schedule. Curtiz and the aerial unit of Paul Mantz, Frank Clarke and cinematographer Elmer Dyer were ready to capture the formation flying scenes. The result of their efforts: for this Technicolor production, some of the best and most stunning aviation footage ever captured on film. A dozen Navy and Marine squadrons flew every day in front of the cameras. Two of the aircraft types were Torpedo 3’s Douglas TBD Devastators and Bombing 3’s
"I haven't got a clue." said Mick,'So I'll use my last lifeline and phone my friend Paddy back home in Dublin ...."
There was a man who had worked all his life, had saved all of his money, and was a real miser when it came to his money.
The location where O'Connor receives his training was filmed at the now-closed Naval Training Center near Pt. Loma. But what makes Here Comes the Navy worth watching isn’t the overly contrived plot, but the scenes filmed on board a battleship in port and at sea. The battleship was the USS Arizona, which, six years after being used in this film, was destroyed by Japanese bombs at Pearl Harbor, killing 1,177 members of her crew. Some of the men seen in the background of Here Comes the Navy died on December 7, 1941.
Mick called up his mate, and told him the circumstances and repeated the question to him. "Hell, Mick!" cried Paddy. "Dat's simple it's a cuckoo." "Are you sure?" "I'm sure."
Mick hung up the phone and told Chris, "I'll go with cuckoo as my answer."
"Is that your final answer?" asked Chris. "Dat it is."
There was a long, long pause and then the presenter screamed, "Cuckoo is the correct answer! Mick, you've won 1 million euros!" The next night, Mick invited Paddy to their local pub to buy him a drink.
"Tell me, Paddy . . . How in Heaven’s name did you know it was da Cuckoo that doesn't build its own nest?" "Because he lives in a blinkinin clock! "
The Obedient Wife
Just before he died he said to his wife... “When I die, I want you to take all my money and put it in the casket with me. I want to take my money to the afterlife with me.” And so he got his wife to promise him, with all of her heart, that when he died, she would put all of the money into the casket with him.
Vought SB2U Vindicators on deployment with USS Enterprise, which later became the most decorated ship of the war. Those two squadrons would be pitted against the Japanese Navy at Midway, with tragic losses among the torpedo crews. Other squadrons flew Grumman F3Fs. The F3F biplane was the forerunner of the famous F4F Wildcat, the thorn in Japan’s side during the first two years of the Pacific war. Among the pilots who flew in the aerial scenes was a then-unknown Lt. Edward “Butch” O’Hare, who would, a few months later, attain fame as the Navy’s first ace. Other wartime movies were shot in San Diego even as Navy and Marine units were preparing to head overseas. Four years after the war ended, Warner produced Task Force, starring Gary Cooper and Jane Wyatt. It tells the history of Naval Aviation from 1925 to 1950. Again North Island was the location for early scenes. A WWII escort carrier named the USS Bairoko was modified to convincingly play the role of the Navy’s first carrier, USS Langley. In 1969 when Twentieth Century Fox made its epic Tora! Tora! Tora! about the attack on Pearl

The loyal wife replied, “Listen, I'm a Christian. I cannot go back on my word. I promised him that I was going to put that money into the casket with him.” “You mean to tell me you put all that money in the casket with him!?”
I sure did,” said the wife. “I got it all together, put it into my account, and wrote him a cheque.... If he can cash it, then he can spend it. Top Ten Indicators That Your Employer Has Changed to a Cheaper Health Care Plan

Harbor, the carrier that was used for the dawn takeoff of the Japanese attack force was the San Diego-based USS Yorktown (CV-10) off the coast of Pt. Loma. The 30-plus American planes that had been modified as Japanese fighters and bombers were kept at North Island until they were shipped to Hawaii. Two San Diegans, Commander Dean ‘Diz’ Laird and Rear Admiral Paul Gillcrist both flew those planes in the movie.
The father of American gliders, John Joseph Montgomery, for whom Montgomery Field in Kearny Mesa is named, was the subject of a 1946 biographical drama directed by the acclaimed William A. Wellman. Gallant Journey, starring Glenn Ford as Montgomery tells the story of his struggle against bankruptcy and public scorn to build the first practical man-carrying glider. The movie was filmed on location in the still-undeveloped and green Otay Lakes area, where Montgomery did much of his early flying in the 1880s and 1890s, long before the Wright Brothers made their debut. Of course the only major Hollywood production depicting Charles Lindbergh’s historic solo flight from New York to Paris in 1927 had to be shot in San Diego, where his Ryan NYP monoplane ‘The Spirit of St. Louis’ was built. The 1957 movie of that name was directed by Billy Wilder and starred the 45 year old James Stewart as the 25 year old Lindbergh. Although most of the movie was filmed elsewhere, some sequences were shot near the San Diego waterfront. With beautiful cinematography and a compelling musicale score, The Spirit of St. Louis is a treat to enjoy. Two flying replicas of the plane were built for production. One was later on display at the San Diego Aerospace (Now Air & Space) Museums in Balboa Park, but was lost when the museum burned down in 1978.
As for comedies, Billy Wilder, one of Hollywood’s great and colorful directors chose the famous Hotel Del Coronado as the location for his most popular film, 1959’s Some Like It Hot, starring the unlikely but successful comedy duo of Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon. The Hotel Del, called The Seminole Ritz serves as the backdrop for a confrontation between the two hapless witnesses to a Chicago massacre and the gangsters hunting them. George Raft, whose fame as a gangster was second only to Jimmy Cagney and Edward
G. Robinson, faces off against the quintessential Irish cop, Pat O’Brien. Yet it is the female lead of Marilyn Monroe as Sugar that makes Some Like It Hot into a memorable film. Marilyn was at the peak of her brief and tragic stardom. Even today, when visitors to the Hotel Del walk through the historic halls, they are even more enthralled when they realize the most famous blonde bombshell of all time resided there during filming. The production took place when it was still possible to walk from the patio directly onto the beach without having to negotiate tennis courts and swimming pools.
The Hotel Del again made the silver screen in 1980’s The Stunt Man, starring the multitalented Peter O’Toole as Eli Cross, a man who accidentally finds himself directing a 1920s adventure film. All the location filming was done in San Diego, including a sequence at the infamous Black’s Beach near La Jolla. The aerial stunts were performed by the late Jim Appelby, a veteran of dozens of films and television shows. Zona Appleby commented about her husband’s work on the film: “Jim flew a replica Nieuport 28 and a Tiger Moth. There was one shot where they wanted Jim to fly close to the roof of the hotel and he refused to do it. He told them, ‘You’re not paying me enough to risk my livelihood to do that shot.’ Chuck Bail did the stunt. That was a very scary thing that close to the hotel.” In that scene, one of Hollywood’s leading stunt men, A.J. Bakunas, jumps from the cupola railing of the hotel ballroom roof and flips over to slide down the long 100-foot slope. He actually broke his leg.
Zona also mentioned the flyover at Black’s Beach. “It took quite a while to get approval from the FAA to fly the Nieuport 28 at Black’s Beach because it was a nudist beach,” she said. “Jim said, ‘I gotta go and check out the beach.’ I asked him, ‘Why? You're not gonna land there.’ He said to me, ‘But I might have to!’”
Three years later at the Navy’s Fighter Weapons School at NAS Miramar Tony Scott filmed what would be the biggest aviation action blockbuster ever made. Top Gun hit the screen with a roar only an F-14 Tomcat could equal. With hunk stars like Tom Cruise and Val Kilmer flexing their muscles and acting talent among the Navy’s best fighter pilots, Top Gun told the story of a cocky pilot with something to prove while training to be the best of the best. Three F-14 squadrons flew their mighty steeds during filming at
Miramar and over the desert. But other local icons found their way into the production, including the famous Kansas City Barbecue near the Embarcadero. Now rebuilt after a disastrous fire, the KCB still draws Top Gun fans to sing the Righteous Brothers’ ‘You’ve lost that lovin’ feeling,’ off-key. These are just a few of the notable films shot in our fair city, but there are many more, and will be many to come. See you at the movies.

Dr. Hosking is something of a workaholic. He will often work into the night; 7 - 8 - 9 pm. Later, if needed. His life revolves around the animals he treats. He went to college in Michigan, got into vetrinary medicine because his mom was a nurse - got interested in medicine in general and decided to focus in on veterinary medicine . . . and we, and our pets, are the richer for it.
He reminds us a bit of Albert Einstein; disheveled hair, always on the move, always busy, seldom takes a break. He’s single. “No woman would have me. I’m too ugly,” he jokingly said to me one day when I inquired if his long hours at the clinic interfered with time spent with his wife and/or children.
Dr. Brian Hosking, San Marcos Animal Medical Center
He has this uncanny ability to quickly diagnose the problem, prescribe the appropriate medication or treatment and, in no time, the animal is, once again, healthy.
His veterinary clinic is often crowded; sometimes there is a wait because the word is out . . . this guy knows what he’s doing.
‘Man About Town’ Cont. on Page 5
‘Man About Town’ Cont. from Page 4
It’s worth the wait to ensure your animal gets the best attention. Our two pups, Trixie and Cindy, and 3 of our 4 cats, got very attentive care, a quick diagnosis, the proper medications assigned, and their medical problems went away.
One day I suggested to the good doctor, “Y’know doc, it’s great the animals have you but you won’t do them any good if you wind up in a nursing home somewhere or, worse, in a graveyard. Don’t you think you should slow down a bit. Take some time off and rest up?
“What would I do,” was his only answer. His life is the animals and he’d be bored watching tv or reading. He has to be treating animals and making them well. That’s what rocks his boat. You may notice that occasionally his staffers seem
a bit short and abrupt. It’s not that they are uncaring. It’s because they are so busy trying to keep up with Dr. Hosking, and shuttling patients in to see him as soon as he’s available . . . and, often, there’s a long line of animals that need tending to. Dr. Hosking is the first place we go when our pups and cats need veterinary care. I didn’t mention it yet, but his rates are quite reasonable. •••••
Janice Hatch is a mighty busy gal . . . and a gal on a mission. She’s out to save dogs from the misery of “Puppy Mills,” those barbaric “dog farms” where dogs are kept in horrible
conditons and bred constantly . . . all to churn out puppies which are then sold to the nation’s pets stores that, in turn, sell them to unsuspecting lovers of dogs. Puppy Mill dogs are often ill, suffering from diseases, some genetic, others acquired. Janice Hatch and her San Diego Animal Defense Team were successful in persuading the San Diego City Council to pass an ordinance banning the sale of dogs, cats and rabbits at retail stores.
She and another group, Saving Pets One at a Time, have joined to hold protests at Oceanside Puppies, a store that opened about two weeks ago on Oceanside Boulevard.
The store is owned by David Salinas, who owns a similar business in San Diego called San Diego Puppies. That store, under the newly adopted ordinance, must stop selling
September 05, 2013 - Page 5
dogs, cats, and rabbits as of yesterday (September 4th.) The activists say they want the city of Oceanside to adopt a ban similar to the one in San Diego.
Salinas said he opened the Oceanside store earlier this month as a “contingency” in case the San Diego store is forced to close. Janice and her fellow activists say the demonstrations — held each Saturday afternoon for the past two weeks — will continue until the city adopts a ban on retail sale of pets. Oceanside Mayor Jim Wood said on Monday that he was approached by the animal rights groups about the issue. Wood, who described himself as an animal lover, said he plans to bring it up to the council for discussion. ‘Man About Town’ Cont. on Page 11

asks, "Have you found Jesus, me brother?" The drunk answers, "No, oi haven't found Jesus!"
By this time, the preacher is at his wits end and dunks the drunk again -- but this time holds him down for about 30 seconds, and when he begins kicking his arms and legs about, he pulls him up. The preacher again asks the drunk, "For the love of God, have you found Jesus?"
The drunk staggers upright, wipes his eyes, coughs up a bit of water, catches his breath, and says to the preacher "Are you sure this is where he fell in?" Wives

This year’s Camp Erin was held in June at the YMCA Camp Marston in Julian, in partnership with The Center for Compassionate Care of the Elizabeth Hospice. Ninety-two campers recognized they were not alone in their grief as they met other children and teens who were facing similar life experiences. As a 10-year old camper
Follow The Light
Back in 1985, I was nineteen years old, and just beginning my education as a commercial artist at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California. As a student I was learning many things; probably the most important of which was putting together my art studio-as per the direction of my college professors.
Of course I had many classes; color theory, life drawing, perspective- your typical art classes. But what I remember most was that my instructors consistently emphasized the importance of proper LIGHTING! “You must have proper lighting in your studio-and your studio must be painted in neutral colors.”
In other words, if your studio was painted lime green, this would have an affect on your work as the reflected light would be green.
At this point in my education I didn’t really understand what my instructors were talking about—regarding this “balanced lighting” thing or even what exactly a “studio” was, but slowly I figured it out; a drawing table, a chair . . . and the LIGHTING! The LIGHTING! was oh so important. It had to be BALANCED; both warm and cool, a combination

Shopping the different art stores in the L.A. area (which are all gone now), I bought my drawing table, chair, and my drawing lights-FANTASTIC LIGHTS! loved ‘em for thirty years! Over the decades the lights have fallen apart and broken down to the point where they didn’t work any more and really had to be replaced . . . and this is really where this story begins . . .
Living in San Diego now, I shopped our local art stores (all two of them) for new lamps. I found the stores to have rinkydink amateur crap lighting available-nothing I could use that they had in stock—not their fault. And I am going somewhere with this, and yes, I am an expert.
Not able to find, locally, what I needed, I turned to the internet. And upon finding the product I wanted I contacted our local art stores giving the information to them-I wanted to give the business to one of them. Only to be told by both art stores this product could not be shipped into the state of California due to the strict environmental and recycling laws regarding the florescent bulbs and how the material may potentially be disposed of.

Through the ‘Engineer Supply Company’ located in the state of Virginia I found exactly what I wanted—these beautiful drawing lamps, and even more so-technology has improved over the past thirty years and these things are sweeet: huh, go figure. I ordered two lamps and was anticipating delivery only to receive an email two days later from Engineer Supply Company informing me this product couldn‘t ship to California due to state environmental and recycling guidelines. Hmmm? I need these lights! What to do, what to do? At this point it’s become more of a challenge to buck the system than to get the lights . . . and these are expensive lightsI must have them!
So I have this friend in Arizona. He and I attended Syracuse University together for our Masters program. I am going to refer to him as ‘Mr. Bill’ as he wishes to remain anonymous regarding this questionable transaction.
‘Mr. Bill,’ being a fellow artist, and sympathizing with my plight, after our conversation, was more than happy to receive shipment of the lamps from Virginia to his studio in Arizona, repackage them, and then forward them to my studio in California. At this point I’m into this for about twice the

original cost of the lights. Despite laws, legislation, regulation, administration-people will get things they want to get—guns, drugs?! I got my lamps! . . . and they are fantastic! It’s just that I had to go through so much trouble and utilize so many unnecessary resources to get a couple of drafting lights . . . and they didn’t even come with thirty round clips! Government is great!
Dr. Captain Schmiernkyvick PHD, MD, MFA, BFA, MBA, MA Postscript: If I’m still alive thirty years from now, when THESE lamps crap out, I will be sure to have them deposited into a landfill—as I have done with the old lamps. To add insult to injury I’m going to save all my used batteries, for the rest of my life, place them in a Glad ForceFlex bag and toss them in the landfill with the lights—just to get back at you environmentalists for making my life so much more complicated than it has to be. Thank you and have a good night.

Escondido • Mayor Sam Abed September is National Preparedness Month
As we approach the start of fire season, the Escondido Fire Department asks you to click on the “Pledge to Prepare” banner on the department’s webpage www.fire.escondido.org and join the National Preparedness Coalition. Please take the time to “Pledge to Prepare” by taking the following actions: 1. Make a plan 2. Have a kit 3. Be informed 4. Get involved A good place to begin preparing is by writing a family emergency plan. Your plan should include every member of your household – including pets! • Learn the likely threats in your area; in Escondido, they are wildland fire and earthquakes.
• Identify family meeting places outside your home and neighborhood. • Designate an out-of-town contact as it may be easier for a long distance call/text message to get through than a local one. • Know alternate routes out of your neighborhood in case your “usual way” is impassable. • Know the location of home utilities. • Know the emergency policies of your work and children’s schools. • Identify safe spots in each room of your home or office to take cover. • Consider stocking extra medications and provisions for family members and pets. • Schedule an annual disaster drill to test your plan. For additional emergency planning information, visit www.ready.gov. For information on the City of Escondido, please visit www.escondido.org

San Marcos • Mayor Jim Desmond Beer Lovers Love San Marcos
L o c a l s already know that North County is a mecca for craft beer, and now San Marcos has received a national nod from TravelNerd as one of the Best Small Cities for Beer Lovers. A June article in the online travel site looked at cities across the nation with a population under 400,000 and made recommendations based on quantity and quality of breweries along
with the number of events that supported the craft beer scene. The article pointed to San Marcos as being home to The Lost Abbey/Port Brewing, Rip Current Brewing, and Stumblefoot Brewing. The worldfamous Stone Brewing Company – which got its start in San Marcos – was also mentioned as being close-by in Escondido. Cal State San Marcos’ Wine, Food and Brew Festival, held each September, also helped San Marcos earn a spot on the list. You can read the entire article by going to www.nerdtravel.com.
Oceanside • Mayor Jim Wood Thank you, Sharon!
I wanted to take a moment to recognize the retirement of a wonderful individual who has done so much for the Oceanside community and for San Diego County – Sharon Delphenich. Sharon has been a dear friend for years and an outstanding leader in the support and protection of our children. Sharon’s stellar resume included positions with such great organizations as Crisis House in El Cajon, YMCA OZ North Coast in Carlsbad and the Family Growth & Counseling Center in Encinitas. However, it was through Sharon’s efforts of 17 years as the Executive Director of
official public relations spokesperson dealing with the media during the two investigations of the murders of Amber Dubois and Chelsea King, and subsequent arrest and conviction of John Albert Gardner.
Carter spoke to the group and outlined his goals for his term as Chief. He intends to continue his policy of community policing, involving the community in working with the department, to increase hiring of officers, and to work with crime prevention; in particular, he hopes to work with youth groups to deter them from joining gangs. Carter promies to return for more visits to “his” club.
Casa de Amparo that her forward thinking and dedication made an even greater impact in so many lives. Sharon worked tirelessly to promote and enhance the services at Casa de Amparo for children and families, she developed transitional housing and support for former foster children, she established the Young Parent Network for teens and young adults, she promoted professional counseling for youths and families, and many more programs. Besides wishing Sharon well in her retirement years, I hope you will join me in thanking her for leaving our community with a vibrant legacy upon which we can build. Thank you, Sharon!

Nome and Paul Van Middlesworth The Computer Factory www.computerfactorysanmarcos.com The “Post PC Era”
This was a term popularized by Apple CEO Steve Jobs at the “All Things Digital Conference” in 2007. “The Post PC Era” was simply Jobs take on Apple’s future. That year “Apple Computer Inc” dropped “Computer” from its name becoming simply Apple Inc. Jobs knew that Apples future resided in communications and content and not as a minor player in the slow growth PC hardware business. Jobs was absolutely correct. Apple’s computer sales have continued to shrink as revenues from the sale of tablets, smart phones, applications, music and other content continue to grow.
Many industry pundits took Jobs pronouncement as the death knell for PCs. “If Jobs said it, it must be true.” Thousands of articles were
School Bond Audit Bill Signed by Governor
Last week, Governor Brown signed into law my Senate Bill 584, which is a victory for taxpayers and good government. SB 584 establishes audit guidelines to ensure school districts are more transparent and use school construction bond money in appropriate ways.
School districts are given millions of dollars bond funding with minimal direction on how to evaluate whether projects are costeffective. As a result, money is sometimes spent on projects that don’t make the best financial sense. We have all known good teachers who ask for classroom donations from parents during back to school
written speculating what a world without PCs would look like. The idea is that all the applications and computing power that anyone wants will be available in “the cloud” (Internet). Users will need only a touch screen and Internet connection, no PC with on board applications and computing power, just a “dumb terminal.” Some customers expressed concern for our future asking us what we were going to do. Six years have gone by and it’s true Dell, HP and Apple are not selling as many PCs as they once did, but not exactly for the reason cited by the “Post PC Era” prophets. “Cloud Computing” has been a minor factor in the shrinking PC business. The major brand PC sellers have suffered a perfect storm of converging negative factors. On the Internet, smart phones and tablets can do anything that a PC can do so they have eaten into notebook PC sales. As notebook prices have fallen desktop PC sales have taken a hit from some home and business users replacing desktops with notebooks for general purpose computing. Microsoft’s operating system strategy has been a huge drag on new PC sales in recent years. It started with the Windows Vista fiasco in 2007 as users balked at giving up on Windows XP. That phenomenon has continued through Win 7
nights because schools don’t have enough money. As students are returning to school, my bill helps ensure their parents’ tax dollars are being spent on classrooms instead of waste and fraud. I believe it is important to make sure every tax dollar dedicated to improving school facilities is used wisely, and I believe Senate Bill 584 will help achieve that goal through better oversight and transparency. Taxpayers, families, and schools cannot afford to subsidize any misuse of school construction bond funds.

and now Win 8. 40% of the worlds PCs are still running XP even though Microsoft hasn’t sold XP licenses to the major manufacturers for nearly seven years.
It also doesn’t help that the two largest PC brands, Dell and HP, have for years been perceived as suffering deteriorating quality and customer service. The other American PC company, Apple, continues to divert development resources from its lagging PC technology to concentrate on more promising products. These American computer companies are at a competitive disadvantage because they no longer design and build the products that carry their logos. They buy their technology and production capacity from offshore competitors like ASUS, ACER, Samsung, Foxconn, and Lenovo. These foreign companies hold an advantage over American PC companies by having in-house design and manufacturing expertise that gives them flexibility in responding to rapidly evolving technologies and user demands. We (The Computer Factory) are building more PCs today than ever before in our eighteen year history.
Reforming Our Tax Laws
Earlier this summer, the Franchise Tax Board (FTB) sent out 190,000 letters to taxpayers informing them they may owe the state back taxes. These letters were mailed to many individuals because of simple errors, including people who mistakenly filed as “Head of Household,” when that designation only applies to single taxpayers with custody of a child or relative. Many businesses are receiving letters from the FTB as well. As a small-business owner, I understand how easy it is to simply make an error in filing a return. Our tax laws are so complex that even obtaining the services of a tax accountant may not prevent these types of errors or omissions. Such errors can be costly.
There are some very good reasons why. 70% of our new PC sales are to small and medium size businesses (from 1 or 2 stand-alone PCs to several hundred networked PCs). The remaining sales go to home users. These are two groups who don’t like change for change sake. They want stable, efficient and cost effective systems. They want quality and reliability. They want fast local service. They don’t want to be forced to change operating systems, applications and hardware just because Microsoft wants them to. Governments, schools and large corporations spend millions catering to Microsoft’s misadventures. They can afford it, our customers can’t. We can design and build a $400 workstation or a $4000 custom designer or gamer system. We can build it with Win XP, 7 or 8. We can design and build it with the latest quality components because our design-to-build cycles are days, not months. So, in our experience. the PC era is not even close to being over. The need is still out there. The problem seems to be that Microsoft and the major PC sellers simply aren’t meeting the needs of PC users, and
Penalties and interest will begin accruing immediately, even if the letter from the FTB arrives years in the future. For that reason, I introduced Assembly Bill 1304 this year. This legislation would require the FTB to mail notices to taxpayers containing specified information about the tax return in question, including errors or requests for amendments, within 60 days of the return’s due date. Given their tremendous impact on our economy as a whole and on our individual financial well-being, the need to reform our complex tax laws has become increasingly evident. Though AB 1304 was tabled for this year, I will press for passage after the Legislature reconvenes in January. Rest assured that I will continue to support legislation that deals with this vital issue.

The Pastor Says . . .
Pastor Richard Huls, Retired “Who is Right?”
This question was asked of me sometime ago when I was teaching a class on religion. It was a good question but perplexing. The person asking it was wondering if the Baptists, Presbyterians, Lutherans, Mormons, Methodists, Pentecostals, Roman Catholics, or a plethora of other religions was right. “They all can’t be right,” she said, “or is it possible all are wrong or all are right?” And then she asked the big question, “Does it even matter?” Perhaps those of you reading this column have asked those same questions, or is it possible that you have resolved the issue by believing what you believe is right and feel secure and comfortable in your belief system? Millions of people are in that category and would defend their belief to the death.
Before you say that these questions and conclusions are absurd, just consider the history of religions. We find that one group or another has slaughtered the “different believers” by the thousands. Today, one faction of the Muslim world kills the other faction and teaches that all those who don’t believe their way are infidels. The same can be said of the Christian movemnents in the Middle Ages and blatant discrimination of one group versus another in this country during the colonial days. Even Jesus found this antagonism in His day, as the religious leaders plotted and succeeded in killing Him, because of His different views about “God and the commandments.” A friend of mine recently commented to me that all this religious stuff has him confused, as church movements were over the issues of women in leadership roles, homosexuality, worship styles, the authority of Scripture, and the relevancy of Biblical life issues in our modern world. I could and do appreciate his perplexity. So who is right? Which religion is the true one? It is good to keep asking these questions. In the meantime, if we have found a faith that gives us joy and peace, let us respect the rights and beliefs of others, and always focus on the ultimate maxim, “to love one another and do to others as you want them to do to you.”
