Volume 45 - No. 18
By Lt Col George Goodson, USMC (Ret)
In my 87th year, the events of my life appear to me, from time to time, as a series of vignettes. Some were significant; most were trivial. War is the seminal event in the life of everyone that has endured it. Though I fought in Korea and the Dominican Republic and was wounded there, Vietnam was my war. Now 42 years have passed and, thankfully, I rarely think of those days in Cambodia, Laos, and the panhandle of North Vietnam where small teams of Americans and Montagnards fought much larger elements of the North Vietnamese Army. Instead I see vignettes: some exotic, some mundane:
(They include) My two years as Casualty Notification Officer in North Carolina, Virginia, and Maryland.
It was late 1967. I had just returned after 18 months in Vietnam. Casualties were increasing. I moved my family from Indianapolis to Norfolk, rented a house, enrolled my children in their fifth or sixth new school, and bought a second car. A week later, I put on my uniform and drove 10 miles to Little Creek, Virginia. I hesitated before entering my new office. Appearance is important to career Marines. I was no longer, if ever, a poster Marine. I had returned from my third tour in Vietnam only 30 days before. At 5'9," I now weighed 128 pounds 37 pounds below my normal weight. My uniforms fit ludicrously, my skin was yellow from malaria medication, and I think I had a twitch or two. I straightened my shoulders, walked into the office, looked at the nameplate on a Staff Sergeant's desk and said, "Sergeant Jolly, I'm Lieutenant Colonel Goodson. Here are my orders and my Qualification Jacket." Sergeant Jolly stood, looked carefully at me, took my orders, stuck out his hand; we shook and he asked, "How long were you there, Colonel?" I replied "18 months this time."
Jolly breathed, "you must be a slow learner Colonel."

Jolly said, "Colonel, I'll show you to your office and bring in the Sergeant Major.â€?
I said, "No, let's just go straight to his office."
Jolly nodded, hesitated, and lowered his voice, "Colonel, the Sergeant Major. He's been in this job two years. He's packed pretty tight. I'm worried about him." I nodded.
Jolly escorted me into the Sergeant Major's office. "Sergeant Major, this is Colonel Goodson, the new Commanding Office.â€?
The Sergeant Major stood, extended his hand and said, "Good to see you again, Colonel." I responded, "Hello Walt, how are you?" Jolly looked at me, raised an eyebrow, walked out, and closed the door.
I sat down with the Sergeant Major. We had the obligatory cup of coffee and talked about mutual acquaintances. Walt's stress was palpable. Finally, I said, "Walt, what's the h-ll's wrong?"
He turned his chair, looked out the window and said, "George, you're going to wish you were back in Nam before you leave here. I've been in the Marine Corps since 1939. I was in the Pacific 36 months, Korea for 14 months, and Vietnam for 12 months. Now I come here to bury these kids. I'm putting my letter in. I can't take it anymore."
I said, "OK Walt. If that's what you want, I'll endorse your request for retirement and do what I can to push it through Headquarters Marine Corps." Sergeant Major Walt Xxxxx retired 12 weeks later. He had been a good Marine for 28 years, but he had seen too much death and too much suffering. He was used up.
Over the next 16 months, I made 28 death notifications, conducted 28 military funerals, and made 30 notifications to the families of Marines that were severely wounded or missing in action. Most of the details of those casualty notifications have now, thankfully, faded from memory. Four, however,
MY FIRST NOTIFICATION
My third or fourth day in Norfolk, I was notified of the death of a 19 year old Marine. This notification came by telephone from Headquarters Marine Corps.
The boy's family lived over the border in North Carolina , about 60 miles away. I drove there in a Marine Corps staff car. Crossing the state line into North Carolina , I stopped at a small country store / service station / Post Office. I went in to ask directions. Three people were in the store. A man and woman approached the small Post Office window. The man held a package. The Storeowner walked up and addressed them by name, "Hello John. Good morning Mrs. Cooper." I was stunned. My casualty's next-of-kin's name was John Cooper! I hesitated, then stepped forward and said, "I beg your pardon. Are you Mr. and Mrs. John Cooper of (address)?" The father looked at me-I was in uniform - and then, shaking,

bent at the waist, he vomited. His wife looked horrified at him and then at me. Understanding came into her eyes and she collapsed in slow motion. I think I caught her before she hit the floor.
The owner took a bottle of whiskey out of a drawer and handed it to Mr. Cooper who drank. I answered their questions for a few minutes. Then I drove them home in my staff car. The storeowner locked the store and followed in their truck. We stayed an hour or so until the family began arriving. I returned the storeowner to his business. He thanked me and said, "Mister, I wouldn't have your job for a million dollars." I shook his hand and said; "Neither would I." I vaguely remember the drive back to Norfolk . Violating about five Marine Corps regulations, I drove the staff car straight to my house. I sat with my family while they ate dinner, went into the den, closed the door, and sat there all night, alone. My Marines steered clear of me for days. I had made my first death notification.

Weeks passed with more notifications and more funerals. I borrowed Marines from the local Marine Corps Reserve and taught them to conduct a military funeral: how to carry a casket, how to fire the volleys and how to fold the flag. When I presented the flag to the mother, wife, or father, I always said, "All Marines share in your grief." I had been instructed to say, "On behalf of a grateful nation...." I didn't think the nation was grateful, so I didn't say that.
Sometimes, my emotions got the best of me and I couldn't speak. When that happened, I just handed them the flag and touched a shoulder. They would look at me and nod. Once a mother said to me, "I'm so sorry you have this terrible job." My eyes filled with tears and I leaned over and kissed her. ANOTHER NOTIFICATION
Six weeks after my first notification, I had another. This was a young PFC. I drove to his mother's house. As always, I was in uniform and driving a Marine Corps staff car. I parked in front of the house, took a deep breath, and walked towards the house. Suddenly the door flew

open, a middle-aged woman rushed out. She looked at me and ran across the yard, screaming "NO! NO! NO! NO!"
I hesitated. Neighbors came out. I ran to her, grabbed her, and whispered stupid things to reassure her. She collapsed. I picked her up and carried her into the house. Eight or nine neighbors followed. Ten or fifteen minutes later, the father came in followed by ambulance personnel. I have no recollection of leaving. The funeral took place about two weeks later. We went through the drill. The mother never looked at me. The father looked at me once and shook his head sadly. ANOTHER NOTIFICATION
One morning, as I walked in the office, the phone was ringing. Sergeant Jolly held the phone up and said, "You've got another one, Colonel."
I nodded, walked into my office, picked up the phone, took notes, thanked the officer making the call, I have no idea why, and hung up. Jolly, who had listened, came in with a special Telephone Directory that translates telephone numbers into the person's address and place of employment. The father of this casualty was a Longshoreman. He lived a mile from my office. I called the Longshoreman's Union Office and asked for the Business

On the first day, God created the dog and said, sit all day by the door of your house and bark at anyone who comes in or walks past. For this I will give you a life span of twenty years. The dog said, "That's a long time to be barking. How about only ten years and I'll give you back the other ten?" And God said that it was good.
On the second day, God created the monkey and said, "Entertain people, do tricks, and make them laugh. For this, I'll give you a twenty-year life span."
Manager. He answered the phone, I told him who I was, and asked for the father's schedule. The Business Manager asked, "Is it his son?" I said nothing. After a moment, he said, in a low voice, "Tom is at home today."
I said, "Don't call him. I'll take care of that." The Business Manager said, "Aye, Aye Sir," and then explained, "Tom and I were Marines in WWII."
I got in my staff car and drove to the house. I was in uniform. I knocked and a woman in her early forties answered the door. I saw instantly that she was clueless. I asked, "Is Mr. Smith home?" She smiled pleasantly and responded, "Yes, but he's eating breakfast now. Can you come back later?" I said, "I'm sorry. It's important. I need to see him now." She nodded, stepped back into the beach house and said, "Tom, it's for you."
A moment later, a ruddy man in his late forties, appeared at the door. He looked at me, turned absolutely pale, steadied himself, and said, "Jesus Christ man, he's only been there three weeks!"
The monkey said, "Monkey tricks for twenty years? That's a pretty long time to perform. How about I give you back ten like the dog did?" And God again said that it was good.
On the third day, God created the cow and said, "You must go into the field with the farmer all day long and suffer under the sun, have calves and give milk to support the farmer's family. For this, I will give you a life span of sixty years." The cow said, "That's kind of a tough life you want me to live for sixty years. How about twenty and I'll give back the other forty?" And God agreed it was good.
On the fourth day, God created humans and said, "Eat, sleep, play, marry and enjoy your life. For this, I'll give you twenty years." But the human said, "Only twenty years? Could you possibly give me my twenty, the forty the cow gave back, the ten the monkey gave back, and the ten the dog gave back; that makes eighty, okay?" "Okay," said God, "You asked for it."
So that is why for our first
Months passed. More notifications and more funerals. Then one day while I was running, Sergeant Jolly stepped outside the building and gave a loud whistle, two fingers in his mouth ... I never could do that ... and held an imaginary phone to his ear. Another call from Headquarters Marine Corps. I took notes, said, "Got it." and hung up. I had stopped saying "Thank You" long ago. Jolly, "Where?"
Me, "Eastern Shore of Maryland. The father is a retired Chief Petty Officer. His brother will accompany the body back from Vietnam."
Jolly shook his head slowly, straightened, and then said, "This time of day, it'll take three hours to get there and back. I'll call the Naval Air Station and borrow a helicopter. And I'll have Captain Tolliver get one of his men to meet you and drive you to the Chief's home." He did, and 40 minutes later, I was knocking on the father's door. He opened the door, looked at me, then looked at the Marine standing at parade rest beside the car, and asked, "Which one of my boys was it, Colonel?" I stayed a couple of hours, gave

him all the information, my office and home phone number and told him to call me, anytime. He called me that evening about 2300 ( 11:00PM ). "I've gone through my boy's papers and found his will. He asked to be buried at sea. Can you make that happen?" I said, "Yes I can, Chief. I can and I will."
My wife who had been listening said, "Can you do that?" I told her, "I have no idea. But I'm going to break my ass trying."
I called Lieutenant General Alpha Bowser, Commanding General, Fleet Marine Force Atlantic, at home about 2330, explained the situation, and asked, "General, can you get me a quick appointment with the Admiral at Atlantic Fleet Headquarters?"
General Bowser said, "George, you be there tomorrow at 0900. He will see you.” I was and the Admiral did. He said coldly, "How can the Navy help the Marine Corps, Colonel."
I told him the story. He turned to his Chief of Staff and said, "Which is the sharpest destroyer in port?" The Chief of Staff responded with a name. The Admiral called the ship, "Captain, you're going to do a burial at sea. You'll report to a Marine Lieutenant Colonel Goodson until this mission is completed."
He hung up, looked at me, and said, "The next time you need a ship, Colonel, call me. You don't have to sic Al Bowser on my ass." I responded, "Aye Aye, Sir," and got the hell out of his office.
I went to the ship and met with the Captain, Executive Officer, and the Senior Chief. Sergeant Jolly and I trained the ship's crew for four days. Then Jolly raised a question none of us had thought of. He said, "These government caskets are air tight. How do we keep it from floating?"
All the high priced help including me sat there looking dumb. Then the Senior Chief stood and said, "Come on Jolly. I know a bar where the retired guys from World War II hang out." They returned a couple of hours
later, slightly the worst for wear, and said, "It's simple; we cut four 12" holes in the outer shell of the casket on each side and insert 300 lbs of lead in the foot end of the casket. We can handle that, no sweat." The day arrived. The ship and the sailors looked razor sharp. General Bowser, the Admiral, a US Senator, and a Navy Band were on board. The sealed casket was brought aboard and taken below for modification. The ship got underway to the 12-fathom depth. The sun was hot. The ocean flat. The casket was brought aft and placed on a catafalque. The Chaplain spoke. The volleys were fired. The flag was removed, folded, and I gave it to the father. The band played "Eternal Father Strong to Save." The casket was raised slightly at the head and it slid into the sea. The heavy casket plunged straight down about six feet. The incoming water collided with the air pockets in the outer shell. The casket stopped abruptly, rose straight out of the water about three feet, stopped, and slowly slipped back into the sea. The air bubbles rising from the sinking casket sparkled in the sunlight as the casket disappeared from sight forever ....
The next morning I called a personal friend, Lieutenant General Oscar Peatross, at Headquarters Marine Corps and said, "General, get me out of here. I can't take this anymore." I was transferred two weeks later. I was a good Marine but, after 17 years, I had seen too much death and too much suffering. I was used up. Vacating the house, my family and I drove to the office in a two-car convoy. I said my goodbyes. Sergeant Jolly walked out with me. He waved at my family, looked at me with tears in his eyes, came to attention, saluted, and said,
"Well Done, Colonel. Well Done." I felt as if I had received the Medal of Honor! A veteran is someone who, at one point, wrote a blank check made payable to 'The United States of America for an amount of up to and including their life.'
more about this Marine.
He had been selected for promotion to full Colonel when his then-wife gave an ultimatum. “You’ve been away from home too long,” she said, “it’s time to hang it up. You need to decide, it’s either the Marine Corps or me.”
“So,” said the Colonel, “I turned in my letter of resignation. I then got a call from the Commandant of the Marine Corps saying, “George, what are you doing? You were on track to become General!” I explained the circumstances to him and he reluctantly allowed me to resign from the Corps. Two weeks later my wife sued for divorce. She wanted to run off and marry the guy she had been seeing on the side all the times I had been deployed overseas. I think I’ve paid her, probably, around $1 million in alimony. Today, she’s in a rest home she never did marry that guy.
Colonel Goodson has been married three times. His first wife died two weeks after the birth of their first child; the second wife, he was married to for 21 years; the third and present wife, whom he married in 1989, is 88, and teaches water aerobics three times a week. He describes Geri, his wife, as “the love of my life.” The Colonel and his wife live comfortably today in an Atlanta suburb, Sandy Springs, Ga. He stays in shape by lifting weights daily; his wife with her water aerobics.
In his retirement years he writes. He has put together a series of memoirs which I asked him to share with me and he assured me he’d send me copies to review. Given the compelling story of “Burial at Sea,” I would hazard a guess that we’ll likely be publishing more of Colonel Goodson’s work. To Colonel Goodson and all Marines, everywhere, “Semper Fi!”
That is Honor, and there are way too many people in this country who no longer understand it.'

Fatal Vehicle/Pedestrian Accident - Escondido
On Friday, April 24th, at about 8:06 a.m., the Escondido Police and Fire Departments were dispatched to the area of Mission Ave. and Quince St. for a vehicle vs. pedestrian collision. Officers arrived on scene and found a female pedestrian with significant injuries in the roadway. Preliminary investigation indicates the unidentified female was panhandling from the raised center median at the intersection. She was standing on the Mission Ave. median west of the intersection. According to witnesses, eastbound traffic on Mission Ave. stopped for a red light and the female left the median, entered the roadway, and was given money by the driver of a fullsize pickup truck pulling a double-axle trailer. The trailer was full of sand and concrete.
The light for eastbound traffic turned green and the driver of this same pickup began to move. The female pedestrian attempted to return to the median and stumbled and fell between the rear of the pickup and the trailer. She was subsequently run over by both rear tires on the left side of the

The Man About Town rolled out of bed at 4:45am Sunday morning, put on warm weather gear (Saturday has been cold, blustery, and wet) and, once prepared for potential cold weather, headed for Dixon Lake to open up the Kiwanis Table where we would sell Opportunity Prize tickets, help point anglers in the right direction, and be available to answer questions as they arose. I was joined by the able Scotsman, James Mac Isaac.
The pedestrian sustained multiple serious injuries and was transported to the hospital by Escondido Fire Department paramedics. She was transported in grave condition, and ultimately died as a result of her injuries. She remains unidentified and updated information regarding her identity will be released by the San Diego County Medical Examiner.
The driver of the pickup truck was not injured and remained at the scene. The driver was not cited. Neither alcohol or distracted driving are believed to be factors in the collision. The traffic investigation is ongoing and is being conducted by Officer Scott Christensen of the Traffic Division. Anyone with information about this case is encouraged to call Officer Christensen at 760.839-4962. Fatal Accident - Escondido

thing and dive in after my bait. This went on all morning. We were surrounded by a flock of pelicans and they wouldn’t leave us alone.
As guys do, we chatted the morning away. Strange how you really get to know someone when you’re in a one-on-one situation, or a fairly small group. You learn things about their life’s experiences, their careers, where they grew up all kinds of things you don’t normally learn at a Kiwanis meeting.
(There are no pelicans at Dixon Lake.)
A bit later on in the morning, fellow Kiwanian, Kent Knitter, stopped by to chew the fat and take in what turned out to be a beautiful, sunny day, with nice warm temperatures.
Man About Town
Naturally, this being a Trout Derby, the talk got around to fishing.
Kent told us a whale of a tale as to why he was not terribly fond of ocean fishing.
“I went fishing once, out in the ocean, in a small fishing boat. Every time I’d put bait on my hook and throw it in the water this doggone pelican would dive into the water, maybe 6-8 feet down, and grab my bait. Naturally, it got hooked so we first had to reel it in, then control an angry pelican, then remove the hook from it’s beak or its pouch, then release it. Problem was, I’d bait up again and throw my line out and that same pelican, or its brother, would do the same danged
We caught plenty of pelicans that day . . . but no fish. So we finally called it a day and headed for shore. I’ve never been very fond of fishing since.”
Too soon to know how much money the Hidden Valley Kiwanis Foundation raised; the numbers aren’t in yet. We got hurt Saturday with the cold, rainy weather but we were mighty busy on Sunday. An added bonus was Dave Geary’s BBQ . . . yes, the same one he runs on Friday nights at Cruisin’ Grand; he had his BBQ unit up at Dixon Lake and sold a ton of hamburgers and hotdogs. So many hot dogs, in fact, that he ran out of buns and called a fellow Kiwanian for help, saying he had hungry fishermen standing in line and he needed buns, FAST! (He got his buns). Dave owns Dave’s Computer Repair and Sales in Escondido and is the Lt. Governor Designate for the local Kiwanis Division. He is also “Mr. Kiwanis” as active as he is in Kiwanis activities.
It’s a mighty good club and if you’re interested in providing service for the community, particularly the kids, come join us

Yesterday, Sunday, I was sitting on the Oceanside Jetty, just enjoying the ocean. Quite a few people were in the water and all looked very peaceful. All of a sudden I see a lifeguard pickup truck, lights and siren, driving straight towards me. When the trucked stopped a few yards from me a lifeguard jumped out, grabbed his orange life preserver and ran full speed in the water towards the end of the jetty where large waves were breaking over the rocks.
I still do not know what was happening and then within a very short time a wave runner came past the end of the jetty

A blonde decides to try horseback riding, even though she has had no lessons, nor prior experience. She mounts the horse unassisted, and the horse immediately springs into motion. It gallops along at a steady and rhythmic pace, but the blonde begins to slide from the saddle. In terror, she grabs for the horse's mane, but cannot seem to get a firm grip. She tries to throw her arms around the horse's neck, but she slides down the horse's side anyway. The horse gallops along, seemingly impervious to its slipping rider. Finally, giving up her frail grip, the blonde attempts to leap away from the horse and

and one of the lifeguards dove into the water. Again, within a few seconds another lifeguard truck came and they were ready to go in when one of the lifeguards in the water gave some kind of signal saying they were ok. Also, the Harbor Patrol Boat was within 25 yards of the rescue. There was a lady with binoculars and a radio watching over everything. The amazing thing was that the lifeguard station was closed and before this happened no lifeguards could be seen. This all happened within minutes.
The point of this story, these lifeguards (heroes) pulled two people out of the water before the waves smashed them into the rocks and they were ok except for a minor cut on a knee. These lifeguards showed they were brave, professional and unbelievably fast with this rescue. Thanks for a job well done /s/Richard Savinda Escondido, Ca.

One Small Step …
As most of you know, Governor Brown recently mandated cutbacks in water use throughout the state, with agriculture exempted. Unfortunately, the order was initially being interpreted in a way that would subject farmers receiving water from municipal or “urban” water districts to cuts not being imposed on famers served by “agricultural” water districts. This interpretation would have had a huge negative impact on farmers served by several major suppliers of agricultural water in the 75th Assembly District, including the Fallbrook Public Utilities District and the Rainbow and Valley Center Municipal Water Districts. On April 15 I sent a letter to the California State Water Resources Control Board asking that these inequitable cuts be rescinded. Fortunately, on April 18 the Board agreed that the pro-

posed regulations should be altered so that farmers in this region will not be subjected to cuts beyond those being imposed on farmers in other parts of California.
Under the revised regulations, the Water Board will allow “urban” water districts that sell more than 20% of their water to commercial agriculture to subtract agricultural water sales from the amount being reported under the new regulations. San Diego County is one of the largest agricultural counties in the state and the nation. Reminding people in the rest of California that agriculture exists south of the Grapevine, and that there is lots of it, is an ongoing battle I will continue to fight. Even in this drought, we have enough water. We just need to get smarter about how we use it.

Taylor, and Jefferson Davis. Davis was the son-in-law of future President Zachary Taylor. Davis would become the leader of the rebelling Confederate States during the Civil War.
The Black Hawk War gave impetus to the U.S. policy of Indian removal, in which Native American tribes were pressured to sell their lands and move west of the Mississippi River.
The Black Hawk War
When it comes to the American Indian wars, little has been said, written, or filmed about those conflicts that occurred in America’s Middle West. In 1832, one particular conflict saw a 23year-old Abraham Lincoln serving for a short time as an elected militia captain in what would become known as “The Black Hawk War.”
Black Hawk was a Sauk war chief who rallied remnants of three tribes to take back lands in Illinois they claimed had been unfairly taken.
In addition to Lincoln, other notable participants in The Black Hawk War included Army officers Winfield Scott, Zachary
The war erupted soon after Black Hawk, who was in his sixties, led a combined group of some 6,000 Sauks, Meskwakis (Fox), and Kickapoos known as the "British Band." In April 1832, they crossed the Mississippi River back into the Illinois from Iowa. The “British Band” moniker was for those tribes fighting with the British against the U.S. in the War of 1812.
Black Hawk was hoping to avoid bloodshed while resettling on tribal land that had been supposedly given to the United States in the disputed 1804 “Treaty of St. Louis.” The tribes believed they had been duped. The St. Louis agreement had been negotiated by future President William Henry Harrison, who then was governor of the Missouri territory at the time. A group of Sauk and Meskwakis (Fox) leaders sup-

posedly “sold” their lands east of the Mississippi in Illinois for more than $2,200, in goods and annual payments of $1,000 in supplies. The treaty became controversial because the tribal leaders had not been authorized by their councils to give up lands. The chiefs probably did not intend to give up “ownership” or they would not have sold so much territory for such a small price. The treatys included more territory than the Indians realized, but tribal leaders didn’t learn the true extent of the treaty until the early 1830s. When the river crossing took place, U.S. officials were convinced Black Hawk and his followers were hostile. Accordingly, on May 14, 1832, an Illinois militia opened fire on an Indian delegation. Black Hawk responded by successfully attacking the militia at the Battle of Stillman's Run. He then led his band to a secure location in what is now southern Wisconsin. From there he was pursued by the militia and a contingent of U.S. troops. The militia, led by Col. Henry Dodge, caught up with Black Hawk on July 21 and defeated him at the Battle of Wisconsin Heights, forcing the Indians to retreat.
Black Hawk's band had been weakened by hunger, death, and desertion. Many of the survivors retreated to the Mississippi River. On Aug. 2, 1832, U.S. soldiers attacked the remnants of Black Hawk’s followers at the Battle of Bad Axe, killing many or capturing most of those who survived, but Black Hawk and other tribal leaders escaped. They later surrendered and were imprisoned for a year.
Shortly before being released from custody, Black Hawk told his life story to an interpreter, and in 1833, was published -the first Native American autobiography to be published. It became an immediate bestseller and went through several editions. Black Hawk died in 1838 (at age 70 or 71) in what is now southeastern Iowa.
With the Black Hawk War concluded, President Andrew Jackson forced most of those Native Americans resisting the white man’s way-of-life to give up all their lands east of the Mississippi River. The Indian wars with the Great Plains tribes and those of the Southwest would continue throughout much of the rest of the 19th century.
For those Native Americans east of the Mississippi, Black Hawk joins Tecumseh as being two of the great leaders who stood up to the white man’s invasion.

Great Food in Escondido
Delicious food is something to get excited about. Escondido boasts many great family-owned and operated restaurants to choose from. I hope you’ll try a few of my favorites.
For breakfast at Charlie’s I usually order eggs over easy with sourdough toast but sometimes a huge omelet with crispy hash browns. A Delight of France makes my favorite raisin Danish and I could eat several if I let myself. Signature Bagel &

Deli makes my custom recipe bagel sandwich without hesitating.
For a healthy lunch, Chicken Plus makes the absolute best Greek salad. Vinz offers my favorite BLTA and I love the Tuscan salad. On sunny days, I go to Hacienda de Vega where the garden seating is serene and all the food is delicious, as are the margaritas. At Mike’s BBQ I order the pulled pork sandwich with tangy sauce and I use a lot of napkins. Date night dinners are at

Corporate restaurants offer reliable menus and predictable prices; sometimes it’s easier to go with what you know.

and even strangers all wanting an enjoyable adventure for us. It is gratifying to know so many want us to have a great time. This is the best part of the trip.
Charlee is the pet of the week at your Rancho Coastal Humane Society. She’s a 3 year old, 70 pound, German Shepherd.
Charlee has been loved for her whole life, but, as the saying goes, “She didn’t get out much.” At Rancho Coastal Humane Society she loves going on walks and she’s always ready for a ride in the car. Charlee needs a mature home where her new family will give her lots of your time and attention.
The $145 adoption fee for Charlee includes medical exam, vaccinations, spay, and microchip. Visit Rancho Coastal Humane Society at 389 Requeza Street in Encinitas or log on to SDpets.org. Call 760-753-6413 for more information. Kennels and Cattery open 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. every day but Tuesday.
Toby, a 6-year-old American Short Hair, is a sweet boy looking for his new best friend. This enthusiastic, playful little cat loves to be the center of attention. He is alert and curious about the world around him and enjoys keeping an eye on his human companions. Toby’s ideal home would be an active and engaging family who can give him the love he craves. He would love to look out a window for stimulation or use interactive play toys while his humans are at work or school. Because he has so much love to give, he would prefer to be your only cat. Toby is available for adoption at the San Diego Humane Society’s Escondido Campus at 3450 East Valley Parkway. To learn more about making him part of your family, please call (760) 888-2275.
Pastor Richard Huls, Retired TAKING A TRIP
As I write this article, I am also planning on taking a trip with my wife. The preparations for a trip are challenging. Making sure one has the right clothes, toiletries, passport for foreign travel, money, the right footwear, medications, shots for possible diseases, camera, dictionary for conversation, tickets for travel, legal coverage in case of accident, and lots of anxiety in forgetting something. It can be exhausting, but also very rewarding. The rewards in our case included a social evening meal with friends, wishing us well and an enjoyable trip. And a host of others – friends, family,
Yet, not all trips are enjoyable. I compare myself to the thousands of refugees fleeing from their homes, countries, possessions and families, leaving all behind and taking little more than the clothes they are wearing. They leave because of fear, poverty, war, persecution, famine, or religious conflict, just to survive in an unknown destination and future. How unlike my trip is to theirs. There is one final trip that I hope to take, when the time is right. It is the trip into eternity. Then I shall leave all behind. The preparation will be my life and faith. I won’t need any clothes, because there will be a new set waiting for me. The destination will be heaven. My ticket will be free, out of the love of God, in Jesus Christ. I will be greeted by my Creator. I will see things that are beyond my imagination. The trip will never end. You might ask, “How can you presume that you will take this trip?” I am trusting that the offer is true, as it is offered in the Bible. I want to take this trip.

San Marcos • Mayor Jim Desmond San Marcos Saturdays
Remember the days where neighbors would help one another with home improvement or maintenance projects without another thought? The City of San Marcos has started fostering those types of neighborhood projects with the San Marcos Saturdays Program, which links community volunteers with qualified homeowners needing minor exterior improvements. San Marcos Saturdays is a volunteer program that connects interested volunteers to home improve-
ment projects in the community. Dependent upon project availability, the program is held quarterly on four Saturdays each year. Eligible work is limited to landscaping, trash or debris removal for property owners unable to perform the work. As projects are identified, City staff will contact registered volunteers using an email subscription service. To learn more about participating in San Marcos Saturdays, either as a homeowner or volunteer please visit www.san-marcos.net/smsaturdays.

Giving Back to the Community
Spring is a season of new beginnings. It e v o k e s thoughts of fresh perspectives and renewed energy. Are you looking for new ways to get involved in your community? Consider volunteering for the Vista Fire or Sheriff’s departments. You will meet and work with others who share common interests, while providing a valuable support to the community. Vista Fire needs volunteers aged 50 and above to help with day-today administrative services, as well as emergency incident support. The volunteers will contribute essential non-firefighting assistance to the fire department. Examples of vol-
unteer responsibilities include picking up and delivering supplies and mail between fire stations; fire prevention education; assisting with the Smoke Alarm Program; providing support such as hydration and food to firefighters at fires and other extended emergency incidents; and conducting fire station tours. To learn more, contact Fire at 760.643.2801. The Sheriff’s Department is also recruiting residents of the same age range to perform vacation home checks, issue parking citations, or mark abandoned vehicles. Call the Sheriff’s Senior Volunteer program at 760.940.4434. Spring is a perfect starting point with all its reference to newness, freshness and beginnings –to get involved!

He figured he’d done something illegal and got caught and now he was embarrassed. The “home page” of his Dell notebook featured an FBI “wanted poster” with his picture. Perhaps he’d been “porn” surfing or downloaded music from a questionable source. He never told us what he had been doing when the wanted poster first appeared. The notice claimed he had been observed committing one or more Internet crimes from a list of illegal acts. He was ordered to pay a $350 fine within 72 hours or a federal warrant would be issued for his arrest and he would be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. Upon conviction there would a fine of

Patrick "Skip" Jacovino Integrity Mortgage Group Senior Mortgage Consultant
This week we will be looking at the meaning of some commonly used terms in the mortgage world that can sometimes seem mysterious to someone who doesn’t work in the mortgage industry. If you are already familiar with these terms, congratulations! You have a good knowledge of mortgages. “Equity”: This is the dollar difference between what is “owed” on a home (or property) and what the property value actually is. For
up to $10,000 and a sentence of 5-20 years in federal prison. If he paid the fine, the case would be dropped and his computer would be restored. The method of payment must be “Money Pak.” He complained that he’d paid the fine more than a week ago but the FBI never unlocked his computer. He was surprised when we told him he’d been scammed but happy to know he would not have a criminal record or be listed as a registered sex offender. This “drive by” malware was probably attached to a porn or music site. When it popped up he was easily convinced that he’d committed a crime. His own webcam was used to create a “mug shot” for his wanted poster.
ny called to tell me that my card was being used all over the world. They recommended that I cancel it. I told them to cancel it immediately,” she said proudly. “That was weeks ago.” I shook my head and started to say something but she had already figured it out. “Oh my God,” she blurted out with her hand to her mouth. “It wasn’t them was it? I didn’t really cancel my card. That’s why they never sent me a new card.” She dashed home to contact her card company.

example, if Joe owes $200K on his home and the home is worth $350K, he has $150K in equity.
payments on credit accounts and keeping credit card balances low helps raise scores.
One lady told us that Norton (her anti-virus provider) contacted her saying that they needed access to her PC in order to clean it up. After an hour they informed her that the cost would be $199 and that it would take another hour to finish the job. Reluctantly she gave them her credit card number but when they finished her PC was a mess. She wanted to know what to do. We told her the first thing to do was cancel the credit card. “Oh” she said, “that’s how I knew it was a scam. While they were fixing my PC, my credit card compa-
This leads us to our next term … “Loan-to-Value Ratio”: This is the equity in a home shown as a percentage. It is calculated by dividing the amount owed on a home by the value of the home. Joe’s example would be 200K owed divided by 350K value which gives us .57 (or 57%)…this is a low ratio, which is good. Lenders use this ratio to determine whether or not a client has enough equity to qualify for a mortgage loan. Most lenders want to see a loan-to value ratio of 80% or less (although many programs allow for much less equity such as VA and FHA loans) “Debt to Income Ratio”: This is another qualifying tool that lenders use. It is calculated by taking a client’s monthly expenses that appear on their credit report and dividing the total by their monthly gross income (income before tax withholding). For example, Joe has mortgage and credit expenses of $2500 per month and makes $6000 a month (before taxes). His ratio is 2500 divided by 6000= .41 or 41%. Most lenders like a ratio of 45% or less to qualify.
“FICO score”: This is a credit score that lenders use to determine credit-worthiness. There are actually three major companies that provide these scores (Experian, Equifax, and Transunion). The scores range from 300-850. The higher the score the better. Most people should strive to have a score above 740. Making timely

“APR vs Interest Rate”: I could write an entire column on the difference. The interest rate is the contract rate on a mortgage. The APR is a term coined by the government to let clients know when they are financing closing costs on a loan. Give me a call or shoot me an email if you would like a detailed explanation. I enjoy talking about it! Good Faith Estimate: This is a document a lender must give a client within 3 days of a mortgage application. It outlines the loan amount, the rate, the payment, closing costs (if any) ... and also if the rate is locked in or not. A very
Next week we will talk about anti-virus, anti-spyware, popup blockers, firewalls, parental controls etc but the real key to “safe surfing” is PARANOIA. Assume that everyone and everything on the Internet is out to get you. It may be a terrible way to live your life but it is the best way to survive on the WWW.
Rate Lock: Very important. This secures your rate for the time it takes to process a mortgage loan. Always make sure your rate is locked when working with a lender. And know how long the rate lock is for. They range from 15 days to 90 days (in general). The longer the lock period, the more protection you have against rate fluctuations in the market. There are many terms that I did not go over due to space and some that I just scratched the surface. If there is anything you would like to know, please email or call me direct. I am always happy to talk about mortgage loans and there is never a cost or obligation to speak with me. Have a great week!

So what does that really mean to us? It tells us that the disc itself does have a God-given ability to heal and repair if provided the proper mechanisms for self-healing. There is a specific mechanism inherent in each of the spinal discs called the “pump mechanism of disc nutri-tion” (see Fig 1). When this mechanism is not working properly, the spinal discs will begin to die causing bulges, herniations, and eventually spinal stenosis.
The spinal disc is one of the very few tissues in the body that does not have a direct blood supply for circulation. The only way that the disc gets the circulation of water, oxygen and nutrients for self-repair is via this specific disc pump mechanism. What happens when you decrease cir-culation in any type of tissue, whether it be animal tissue, plant tissue or human tissue? Exactly, it begins to become weak and begins to degenerate.
brown leaves are the plant’s problem? Of course not, the leaves turning brown is just a condition that is telling you that there is something wrong with the plant. The plant is unhealthy and needs water and nutrients. You could spray paint the leaves green but it just covers up the condition. The underlying problem still exists and will continue to produce brown leaves until you fix the actual problem. and tingling that most experience with bulging, herniated or degenerative discs are NOT the problem. The definition of a symptom: “something that indicates the existence of something else.” It is just like the dashboard of your car telling you that something is wrong (brake lights out, engine needs checked, overheating, etc.) Those lights that appear in your car dash are NOT the problem. You can remove the lights surgically or put a piece of duct tape over the lights but the problem will NOT be fixed...the problem is still present. Let’s take a look at a plant for example...if the leaves on a plant begin to turn brown, would you say that the
Symptoms Are NOT The Problem

In your spine, when the pump mechanism of disc nutrition fails, the disc will begin to de-generate and become weak. This weakness in the disc is what produces the bulging, herniated, and degenerative discs.
The treatment that is provided at Dr. Heilman’s Spine and Neuropathy Care Center in Escondido is revolutionary and is specifically designed to artificially re-create the pump mechanism in the discs which allows the spinal discs to heal and repair. The best part of the treatment is that it uses no drugs, no injections, and no surgery. Plus it’s painless and many patients relax and fall asleep while undergoing the treatment. The amount of treatment needed to allow the discs to heal and repair varies from person to person and can only be determined after a detailed neurological and orthopedic evaluation.
