by lyle e davis We were all shocked when we heard of the senseless killing of members of the Sikh religion back in Wisconsin. There was no apparent rhyme or reason behind the shootings. Just a crazed murderer who apparently decided to kill a number of people, at random, who did not believe as he did, who was different than he was, and who had done him no harm in any way. Most of us have heard of the Sikhs . . . yet most of us, including myself, know very little The Paper - 760.747.7119

about them. Who are they? What do they believe? Let’s take a look and see. A Sikh is a follower of Sikhism, a religion that originated in the 15th century in the Punjab area of India. Sikhism in the Western world As Sikhs wear turbans (although different from Middle Eastern turbans) and due to the relatively small number of Sikhs, there have been incidents of Sikhs in Western countries being mistaken for Middle Eastern Muslim

men. This has led to mistaken attitudes and acts against Sikhs living in the West especially with respect to the 9/11 terrorist attack and recent Iraq War. Sikhs are neither Muslims nor from the Middle East. Sikhism is a religion of India. The roots of Sikhism lie in Punjab (India). Sikhs make up 60% to 70% of the total population of Punjab, which is the only region in the world where Sikhs are in the

majority. After the 11 September 2001 attacks, some people associated Sikhs with terrorists or members of the Taliban. A few days after the attack, Balbir Singh Sodhi, a Sikh man, was gunned down by Frank Roque, who thought that the victim had ties to al-Qaeda. CNN suggested that there has been an increase in hate crimes against Sikh men

often wrongly labeled as terrorists.

Amardeep Singh Mann with the San Diego Sikh Foundation says

There are about 600 Sikhs living in San Diego County and they worship at two temples: one in Poway and another in Escondido.

Sikhism has never actively sought converts; thus, the Sikhs have remained a relatively homogeneous group ethnically.

The term "Sikh" has its origin in a Sanskrit term, meaning disciple, or student. A Sikh is a disciple of the Guru, the founder of the religion.

Simply, the Sikhs believe there is one God, that all humanity is one, and that religious divisions are manmade. The guiding principles of the Sikh faith are Truth, Equality, Freedom, Justice, and Karma. As I began my research on the Sikhs, I was amazed that their belief system closely parallels that of the Baha'i. And the more I read of the Sikhs, the more I decided they would make mighty fine friends. They are a kind and gentle people, they will literally die to protect your right to believe in whichever religion you choose, yet they support their own religion, you’ll excuse me, religiously. While Sikhs are found worldwide, by far their largest population is in their historical homeland country of Punjab, India, with well over 19,000,000. The United Kingdom has about 760,000; Canada has about

The Sikh code of conduct strictly forbids the use of intoxicants, drugs, alcohol, cigarettes, narcotics and any other foreign substance which disrupts the body; sexual relationship outside of marriage; consumption of sacrificial meat (Kutha meat), and cutting of hair.

About 600 families are practicing Sikhs in San Diego County, and a priest from a temple in Poway, Pratap Singh, knew two of the victims killed in the recent massacre.

"If somebody like this does something irrational in this way and takes out innocent people, it's not good, no matter who it happens to, whether it's Sikhs, Hindus, Muslims or Christians."

‘The Sikhs’ Cont. from Page 2 Kaur (princess) as their surname. Sikhs who have undergone the khanḍe-kī-pahul, the Sikh initiation ceremony, can also be recognized by the Five Ks: uncut hair (Kesh); an iron/steel bracelet (kara); a Kirpan, a sword; Kachehra, a type of special shorts; and a Kanga, a small comb to keep the hair clean. Male Sikhs cover their hair with a turban, while female Sikhs may wear a turban or a headscarf. Given that the Sikhs believe in the basic goodness of man . . . that we are all equal . . . and that they appear to be a most amiable people, it may surprise you to know that Sikhs are some of the most admired and respected military practitioners on the world stage. Indeed, if the United States were to become involved in yet another war, its commanders would be wisely counseled to retain, at a minimum, one regiment of Sikhs. They’re that good, that courageous, that mission oriented. Sikhs supported the British during the Indian Rebellion of 1857.

Sikh soldiers, marching in France during WW I By the advent of World War I, Sikhs in the British Indian Army totaled over 100,000, i.e. 20% of the British Indian Army. In the years to 1945, 14 Victoria Crosses were awarded to the Sikhs, a per capita record given the size of the Sikh Regiments. In 2002, the names of all Sikh VC and George Cross winners were inscribed on the pavilion monument of the Memorial Gates on Constitution Hill next to Buckingham Palace, London. During World War I, Sikh battalions fought in Egypt, Palestine, Mesopotamia, Gallipoli, and France. Six battalions of the Sikh Regiment were raised in World War II, and served at El Alamein and in Burma, Italy and Iraq, winning 27 battle honors. Across the world, Sikhs are commemorated in Commonwealth cemeteries. "In the last two world wars 83,005 turban wearing Sikh soldiers were killed and 109,045 were wounded.

They all died or were wounded for the freedom of Britain and the world, and during shell fire, with no other protection but the turban, the symbol of their faith." —General Sir Frank Messervy "British people are highly indebted and obliged to Sikhs for a long time. I know that within this century we needed their help twice [in two world wars] and they did help us very well. As a result of their timely help, we are today able to live with honour, dignity, and independence. In the war, they fought and died for us, wearing the turbans." —Sir Winston Churchill So the peace-loving Sikhs are also capable of enforcing the peace, when necessary; when their community is threatened, when their nation-state is threatened, when their allies are threatened. The only real dark stain on the Sikh people was occasioned by the assassination of India’s Prime Minister, Indira Ghandi. She was assassinated by her own Sikh bodyguards. Sikhs are not required to renounce the world. They aspire to live the life of a householder. Seva (selfless service) is an integral part of Sikh worship. Visitors of any religious or socio-economic background are welcomed, where langar (food for all) is always served to people of all origins, the same (vegetarian) food, while sitting together on the same level of the floor. Sikhs believes in one supreme being which is real and only experienceable in this creation; technically there is nothing in this creation which is devoid of it and distinct of it. It teaches that the God is omnipresent, transcendent, omnipotent, and omniscient. It also revolves around the belief in reincarnation. Emphasis is on ethics, morality, and values; the Sikh faith does not accept miracles. The Sikh school of thought believes in a form of reincarnation similar to Karma. The concept of hell and heaven in Sikhism is metaphorical and is said to be experienced by those who chose (or not) to live within the philosphy and religion. Sikhism teaches that all of humanity was created by God, who is addressed by many names and understood differently. Sikhism teaches to respect all other religions (tolerance) and that one should defend the rights of not just one's own religion but the religion and faith of others as a human right. At the

end of every Sikh prayer is a supplication for the welfare of all of humanity. Indeed, a number of Sikhs have given their lives in defense of religions other than their own. Several of them were leaders of the Sikhs, descendants of the original Guru. The 5th (of which there were ten) Guru, Arjan Dev, was martyred by the Mughal, India, ruler Jahangir on 16 May 1606 for refusing to convert to Islam. The martyrdom of Sri Guru Teg Bahadur Ji, the 9th Guru, to protect Hindus from religious persecution, occurred in Delhi, on 11 November 1675 AD. He gave his life to protect the right of Kashmiri Hindus to practice their own religion when they were being forced to convert to Islam by Aurangzeb, the Mughal emperor at the time. Many other prominent Sikhs gave thier lives in defense of a religion other than their own as well. Sikhs believe in the concept of a human Soul. They believe they can unite and become one with God in this life, as the consciousness merges with God (Supreme Consciousness) through truthful living and actions and is only a matter of realization. Sikhs always greet each other with the words "Sat Sri Akaal" which literally means "Truth is Time-less being." Truth, truthful living, equality, freedom and justice are the core principles of Sikh philosophy. Sikhs are asked to perform five prayers in the morning, one in the evening and one before sleeping. Sikh scriptures teach the concept of moderation. Sikhism teaches a person to remove the Five Evils: kaam or kam (lust), krodh (anger), lobh (greed), moh (attachment), and ahankar (pride). The Sikhs hold a special reverence for women. Guru Nanak Dev Ji, their founder, sought to improve the status of women by spreading this message: "From woman, man is born; within woman, man is conceived; to woman he is engaged and married. Woman becomes his friend; through woman, the future generations come. When his woman dies, he seeks another woman; to woman he is bound. So why call her bad when she gives rise to nobility? From woman, woman is born; without woman, there would be no one at all. O Nanak, only the True Lord is without a woman." In so doing, he promoted

women's rights and equality, a remarkable stance in the 15th century which was actually put into practice by Guru Nanak and the following 9 Gurus. (We’ll explain the 10 Gurus later in this article). Khalsa Sikhs do not cut their hair and as a form of respect cover it with an elegantly tied turban. To keep one's hair is a commitment to accept the body in the natural form in which it was born, and to get rid of vanity relating to outward appearance. Wearing a turban forms a distinct identity and also makes the Sikhs very easily recognizable. Sikh history is built on examples of brave men and women who defended an ideology built on the fundamentals of human rights and equality of all human beings. This belief often led to conflict with oppressive forces. For more than 300 years the Sikhs were persecuted endlessly. The Sikh human rights struggle morphed into a political struggle which was one of the dominant causes of the fall of the Mughal empire in India and led to the formation of a Sikh kingdom before being annexed by the British in 1849. At the peak of their political power, the Sikhs under Maharaja Ranjit Singh, controlled a large kingdom centered in Lahore which was also secular and egalitarian. This kingdom had Hindus, Muslims and Sikhs in prominent cabinet positions. An example of Sikhism's commitment to tolerance is the fact that the foundation stone of one of the most prominent shrines of the Sikhs — Harmandir Sahib, Amritsar also known as the Golden Temple — was laid, not by the many eminent Sikh leaders or the 4th Sikh Guru Ramdas, who was the leader of the Sikhs at that time, but by a Sufi Muslim by the name of Sain Mian Mir. The Sikh religion was founded by a man called Guru Nanak Dev Ji. The Sikhs believe that Guru Nanak, while in deep meditation by a river, was called to the court of God where he received direct revelations from God for three days. It is stated that God asked Nanak to drink from the cup of Naam (Path/Essence of God) and then promoted Nanak to the highest of all status. From there on he was known as Guru Nanak so that he could teach the world that there is one God, that all humanity is one, and that reli-

Page 4 - August 16, 2012 Carlsbad Woman Charged in Husband’s Homicide At 11:06 p.m., on Tuesday, Aug 7th, the City of Carlsbad Police Department received a call to check the welfare of occupants at 2420 Badger Lane. At 11:16 p.m., responding officers found a deceased white male adult at the Badger address and began a homicide investigation. The deceased male was released to the medical examiner for further investigation and identification. He was soon identified as Jason Harper. A short time later, his wife, 39 year-old Julie Harper, turned herself in, via her attorney, to police. Her three juvenile children were taken into protective custody. She was charged with murder. Those children told investigators they had heard a loud thud from their parents bedroom last Tuesday. They then heard their father

Local News yelling, according to prosecutors. The prosecutor, Deputy District Attorney Keith Watanabe, said the children said they headed upstairs to see what had happened, but the door to their parents' bedroom was "barricaded." That was between 8 and 9 a.m. Tuesday, he said. These points came out in a Vista courtroom Monday afternoon during formal arraignment for the victim's wife, Julie Elizabeth Harper. Julie Harper pleaded not guilty to a charge of murder and an allegation that she used a gun to kill her husband, from whom she had filed for divorce five days before his death. Jason Harper was a math teacher and former volleyball coach at Carlsbad High School. Jason Harper's parents were in the courtroom for their daughter-in-law's arraignment. Julie Harper faces up to 50 you get to meet so doggone many fascinating people.

During the arraignment, Watanabe told the judge that Jason Harper had been shot on the left side. The bullet traveled up between Harper's ribs, piercing his heart, then lodging in the upper right side of his chest. Police have not found the gun used in the shooting, he said. Harper has two guns registered in her name; neither has been found.

He said police had directed Jason Harper to leave the home until he calmed down. Oceanside Teacher Arrested on Sex Crime Charge

Speaking of things religious, and I just was, I was pleasantly amazed while researching this week’s cover story on the Sikhs about how closely their religious philosophy parallels that of the Baha’i. Like most of you, I knew little of the Baha’i or the Sikhs until researching them for cover stories. In both instances I learned they are a kind and gentle people; the kind of people I’d like to get to know. We are out of town this weekend, attending a convention (one of my least favorite activities) but when we return, it’s my intention to visit the Escondido Sikh Temple.

Rita and her husband, Tony, own Sorrento’s and they turn out the best pasta and pizza in North County, for my money. We love going there because we’re always greeted as though we were family and because we always know the food will be absolutely the best. Evelyn and I were both in the mood for spaghetti, so that’s what we ordered. (Evelyn cuts up her spaghetti before eating it. Can you imagine? But I forgive her this culinary transgression.

Guru Nanak Although Guru Nanak Ji also took decisive steps for reforming the social and religious set up. He employed very innovative yet simple methods to bring about the necessary change. Besides, he also raised his voice against oppression and injustice and aroused the consciousness of people. That is why not only in India but in the east and the west too he came to be known as"The Accomplished Man". He did not set out from home in search of God or tranquillity, in fact he ventured out with set goals: to make people aware of the religion and caste based oppression and to fight against injustice and inequality. Guru Nanak ji undertook four voyages in all four directions. In spite of limited means he reached Burma in the east, the Low back pain can be a crippling experience.

‘‘The Sikhs’ Cont. from Page 5 compulsory condition. All this was for the ideal development of the society. In the course of his longest voyage to the east, Guru Ji visited many temples, pilgrimage centres and caves of holy men. He advised Brahmins and their blind followers to stop worrying about the salvation of their ancestors’ souls and worship God instead. During his second voyage he won the hearts of Moslem saints (Khwaja Moinuddin Chishti) and other ascetics. He reached the caves of holy men in the Himalayas and said: (The followers have nobody to lead them, devoid of wisdom they utter untruths and absurdities. In this frenzy, the leaders are being led by the followers instead.) Guru Nanak ji lived and carried out his family duties in Kartarpur where farming was his vocation. He departed from this world on the 7th of September 1539 in Kartarpur (now in Pakistan).

Near the end of his life the Guru had many followers from many walks of life and religions. The Guruship was consecutively passed down to nine other Gurus, who were stated to have the divine light of God with

Adoptions Fees for three months – In an effort to find homes for 1,500 animals during August, September and October, the Escondido Humane Society is reducing adoption fees to just $25 for all dogs, cats, and bunnies during those three months. Reduced fees are part of the shelter’s ASPCA $100K Challenge campaign. The EHS is the first and only San Diego County shelter competing in this challenge, a nationwide competition for animal shelters and their communities that aim to get more animals adopted or returned to their owners than ever before. From August 1 to October 31, the EHS will compete to find homes for 33 percent more cats and dogs than it did during the same period in 2011. EHS is one of 49 shelters participating nationwide, and the organization that achieves the greatest increase in lives saved will receive a $100,000 grant from the ASPCA. All adoption fees include spay/neuter; microchip with lifetime registration; upto-date vaccinations; dog licensing; veterinary exam at EHs; wellness exam after adoption; sample bag of food; discounts at local pet supply, grooming and boarding partners; and behavior support for dogs and cats for lifetime of animal. The Adoption Center is located at 3450 E. Valley Parkway, and is open from 10am to 5pm, seven days a week.

Honor Flight San Diego – has scheduled an October charter flight to Washington, DC, and they are approximately 95% of the way to the funding goal needed to take this second flight this year. Honor Flight San Diego recognizes our WW II heroes by taking them to visit their memorials in Washington, DC, at no cost to them. Many of them dreamed of seeing the WW II Memorial one day but realized that by the time it was opened in 2004 they were not physically or financially able to make the trip. Many have died without having the opportunity to make the trip. Your donations are what

them. These Gurus strengthened and expanded the Sikh religion and the revelations of God. The final and last Guruship was given to the total combined teaching of the Gurus known as the Sikh holy book/guide The Guru Granth Sahib Ji. (The book would be roughly comparable to the Bible as a holy book of the Sikhs).

Sikh children

According to Article I of the the Sikh code of conduct and conventions, Guru Nanak Dev Ji was the founder of Sikhism. The basis of Sikh lifestyle is: Kirat Karni, Naam Japo and Wand kay Chako, which means work diligently and honestly, meditate on the holy name (Waheguru), and share the fruits of labors with others. The idea that human beings must work for a living and play an active role in society is the basis of this philosophy. The Sikhs revere Sri Guru

make these trips possible. Your support made it possible in 2011 for 123 WW II veterans and in May 2012 for 104 WW II veterans to visit DC. Currently, there are approximately 300+ WW II veterans on the waiting list to make the trip. Time is of the essence. For more information and if you are interested in volunteering, go to info@honorflightsandiego.org. Your tax deductible donations can be made online through the secure website at www.honorflightsandiego.org/donate.htm or mailed to Honor Flight San Diego, 9423 Keck Court, San Diego, CA 92129. HFSD is an all volunteer non-profit created solely to honor America’s veterans for their sacrifices, and transport our heroes to Washington DC to visit and reflect at their memorials. Top priority is given to senior veterans, WW II survivors, and those other veterans who may be terminally ill. With over one thousand WW II veterans dying each day, our time to express our thanks to these brave men and women is running out.

‘Local News’ Cont. from Page 4 arrested by police last Thursday on suspicion of sexually assaulting a 17-year old boy who had been her student at a Vista residential school. The teacher, Kelly McKenzy Watson, 34, met the teenage boy while she was his teacher at New Haven Youth and Services from Family September 2010 to August 2011, according to San Diego police officials, who issued a press release announcing Watson's arrest. The news release said that a tip on July 30 led to an investigation in which sex crimes detectives "determined Watson had engaged in an inappropriate dating relationship with the juvenile several months ago."

If you would like the Social Butterfly to cover your event, call us! (760) 747-7119 or (760) 746-1649 Granth Sahib as their supreme teacher. The tenth Guru, Guru Gobind Singh Ji, (31 December 1666 - 21 October 1708) was also a warrior, poet and philosopher. He contributed much to Sikhism; notable was His contribution to the continual formalization of the faith which the First Sikh Guru had founded. Guru Gobind Singh transformed Sikhs into Khalsa in 1699. The Khalsa were the baptised Sikhs. Gobind Sing issued the following: Smoking being an unclean and injurious habit, you will forswear. You will love the weapons of war, be excellent horsemen, marksmen and wielders of the sword, the discus and the spear. Physical prowess will be as sacred to you as spiritual sensitivity. And, between the Hindus and Muslims, you will act as a bridge, and serve the poor without distinction of caste, colour, country or creed. My Khalsa shall always defend the poor, and 'Deg' - or community kitchen - will be as much an essential part of your order as Teg -the sword. And, from now onwards Sikh males will call themselves 'Singh' and women 'Kaur' and greet each other with '(The Khalsa belongs to God; victory belongs to God).

Watson, who was arrested shortly before 11 a.m., remained jailed at Las Colinas Detention Center in Santee on Thursday evening in lieu of $45,000 bail, according to online jail records. He ended the line of personal Gurūs and transferred his authority to the dual agency of the Sikh scripture, Srī Gurū Graṅth Sāhib and to the Guru Khalsa Panth. The Paṅth, or the community of followers, was to be the physical manifestation of the Gurū, while the Graṅth was to be the spiritual. Sikhism professes democratic institutions such as Guru Paanth (literally the teacher's followers), and decisions about the community are made collectively by the Guru Paanth. Thus, Guru Gobind Singh Ji, the 10th and final Guru, gave Sikhs their outer physical form and established a new order called the Khalsa. The five symbols of Halsa Sikhs are: Kesh (uncut hair, usually tied and wrapped in the Sikh Turban, Dastar) Kanga (a wooden comb, usually worn under the Dastar) Katchera (specially made cotton underwear as a reminder of the commitment to purity)

The Doctor is In! n’t reach many of the areas in the mouth at greatest risk for dental disease. NEW FLASH! Changes in the basic philosophy of oral hygiene are now san marcos dental center occurring based on 760.734.4311 new scientific sanmarcosdentalcenter.com research, with new products and techniques being San Marcos Dental Center introduced. Here are just a few:

Dr. Gregory Hurt, DDS

Oral Hygiene – Tradition Versus Scientific Facts Despite being science-based professionals, dentists and hygienists teach oral hygiene based on traditions with no research base. Tooth brushing is one of those traditions. There are many studies comparing different types of tooth brushes (manual, power, soft or hard bristles, etc.) assuming that toothbrushing is the most important oral hygiene activity essential for oral health. Granted, tooth brushing removes more plaque (bacterial colonies) than not brushing BUT such an ingrained habit tends to ignore that toothbrushing does-

1. Interproximal First – Plaque first accumulates on the proximal (between teeth) surfaces of your teeth with your lower molars and premolars (bicuspids), followed by your upper molars. The lingual (tongue side) surfaces of your upper teeth accumulate very little plaque. Start by “dry brushing” first, then flossing or “tipping” between your teeth. 2. Dry Brush First – No water or toothpaste to start! Do this with your entire mouth until it feels clean, then add toothpaste for breath refreshment and fluoride treatment! 3.

Lower Right or Lower

Left… Difficult areas to clean – Almost all studies show that the most difficult area to clean is your lower right back teeth if you’re right handed, and your lower left back teeth if you’re left handed … so spend a little more time there. Most toothbrushing brochures suggest brushing your front teeth first, which is the area of your mouth “least” likely to accumulate plaque. You should start in the areas of greatest risk. Simply changing your toothbrushing pattern will increase your effectiveness. 4. Most Effective Plaque Removal – Xylitol is a natural sugar that bacteria can’t metabolize. It interferes with the acid production by the bacteria in mouth and reduces the plaque levels there. If consumed 3-5 times daily, xylitol reduces plaque accumulation by 50%! Toothbrushing depends on your dexterity, Xylitol works no matter what your toothbrushing

skill level is. Just chew gum, use toothpaste (Sply, Epic, Squigle, etc.) a mouthrinse, suck on candy, etc. as long as it has xylitol in it! Between it and a thorough brushing you will decrease your susceptibility to decay and periodontal disease significantly! 5. Remineralization – Studies now show that with a more scientifically based approach to Oral Hygiene, along with using toothpastes having xylitol and fluoride in them, it’s not only possible to prevent decay and disease, we can even remineralize those areas in our mouth that are damaged by bacteria accumulation (plaque). In Conclusion: When you change your approach to Oral Hygiene and base it on Scientific Facts instead of the old, traditional methods, you’ll be much more effective in preventing decay and gum disease … and have a much healthier body! We all know a healthier body means a better and often longer life!

Orchard Orphans - A Mission of Compassion

You meet some fascinating people while putting together a newspaper. One of them, Christine Runge, I have known for years. She and her husband, Juergen, used to own Chocolates, Etc. in San Marcos and were regular advertisers in The Paper. I learned early on that Christine and Juergen were soft touches when it came to animals . . . particularly dogs. What most folks don’t know is that Christine and Juergen work very closely with ForgottenPaws.org . . . a rescue organization that appears weekly in The Paper and

which has been rescuing dogs, mostly Chihuahuas, for

years. Christine has been right there, working alongside Dawn Beattie and her crew, saving and finding homes for countless dogs. But Christine and Juergen have their own pet project as well, OrchardOrphans.org. For more than 30 years migrant workers lived in shacks, tents and small covered trailers in Southern California's North/Central San Diego County. They labored in orange and avocado groves during the harvesting season. After harvest many went home to their families in Central and South

America. Some found local jobs and stayed. Others moved north to work other produce crops. A few years ago police agencies (INS and local law enforcement) closed the camp. Those who were here legally found new places to live. Others were deported. In the confusion that was a part of the displacement, animals (mainly dogs) were overlooked. Today, many descendants of the original dog population still live in and around that forgotten campsite. Wild and shy. Six years ago Christine, following a tip from a friend, found the old campsite and a number of orphaned dogs that live there. This was the beginning of a daily labor of love: feeding and caring for these abandoned animals. At present five neglected dogs are thriving and cared for on the grounds Christine and her husband, Juergen call home. The rest of the Orchard Orphans remain at the old campsite. Six dogs continue to live at the old migrant worker's

campsite. All have been seen by a vet, given distemper shots, checked for deficiencies and neutered -- except for one: a wily old male who only shows up when Christine is alone (without a photographer) but continues to refuse to be touched. Eats and leaves!

Christine and Nana

An increasing number of puppies (and Christine suspects other small animals) are being abandoned at the site. But they do not last long: hungry bobcats and coyotes keep the population in check. Of the six adult dogs living there one was dropped off recently. The site is becoming increasingly popular as a dumping ground for unwanted animals. If you’d like to help, contact Christine at 760.522.7602, or at christinemjr@hotmail.com


Page 10 - August 16, 2012 ‘The Sikhs’ Cont. from Page 7 Kara (an iron bracelet, which is a symbol of eternity) Kirpan (a curved sword, which comes in different sizes; for example in the UK Sikhs would wear a small sharp dagger, whereas in the Punjab Sikhs would wear the traditional curved sword, from one to three feet in length). Generally Sikhism has had amicable relations with other religions. However, during the 151 year Mughal rule of India (1556–1707), the emerging religion had strained relations with the ruling Mughals. Hindu Hill rajahs fought frequent battles against Guru Gobind Singh because they believe in and supported the caste system, while Guru Gobind Singh's rejected caste. Sikhism is casteless. Subsequently, Sikhism militarized to oppose Mughal oppression of their religious beliefs and practices. The emergence of the Sikh Empire under reign of the Maharajah Ranjit Singh was characterized by religious tolerance and pluralism with Christians, Muslims and Hindus in positions of power. The Empire's secular administration integrated innovative military, economic and governmental reforms. The months leading up to the partition of India in 1947 were marked by heavy conflict in the Punjab between Sikhs and Muslims. The effect was the religious migration of Punjabi Sikhs and Hindus from West Punjab, mirroring a similar religious migration of Punjabi Muslims in East Punjab. The 1960s saw growing animosity and rioting between Sikhs and Hindus in India, as the Sikhs agitated for the creation of a Punjab state based on a linguistic basis similar to that by which other states in India had been created. Communal tensions arose again in the late 1970s, fueled by Sikh claims of discrimination and marginalization by the Hindu dominated Indian National Congress ruling party and the "dictatorial" tactics adopted by the then Indian Prime Minister, Indira Gandhi. Some argue that Gandhi's assumption of emergency powers in 1975 resulted in the weakening of the "legitimate and impartial machinery of government", and her increasing "paranoia" of opposing political groups led her to instigate a "despotic policy of playing castes, religions and political groups against each other for political advantage". As a reaction against

Daisy is a sweet young lady with very nice manners. She is about 2 years old and a mere 7 pounds of Tibetan Terrier/Chihuahua blend... just a slight scruffiness to her coat. She is very good on her walks and likes to cuddle gently with her people. She gets along with other pets and people … including kids! She is crate trained and is doing well learning some basic commands in our new relaxed setting puppy school. Like all our pups Daisy is spayed and microchipped. Her vaccines and rabies are all up to date. She comes with a full 4 piece safety equipment set, food for her transition and any favorite toys or bedding. For more pictures please visit her on our website as well as the other wonderful pups in our rescue that need great homes. www.forgottenpaws.org or contact us at admin@forgottenpaws.org. Thank you these actions, the Sikh leader Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale vocalized Sikh sentiment for justice . This accelerated in Punjab a state of communal violence. Gandhi's 1984 action to defeat Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale led to the attack of the Golden Temple in Operation Bluestar and ultimately led to Gandhi's assassination by her Sikh bodyguards. This resulted in an explosion of violence against the Sikh communities in the antiSikh riots which resulted in the massacre of thousands of Sikhs throughout India; Khushwant Singh described the actions as being a Sikh pogrom in which he "felt like a refugee in my country. In fact, I felt like a Jew in Nazi Germany". Since 1984, relations between Sikhs and Hindus have moved towards a rapprochement helped by growing economic prosperity. Numbering approximately 27 million worldwide, Sikhs make up 0.39% of the world population, of which approximately 83% live in India. Approximately 76% of all Sikhs live in the northern Indian State of Punjab, where they form a majority (about two thirds) of the population.

Rancho Bernardo • Mayor Jerry Sanders Since San Diego voters approved our managed competition program, it has been a major factor in our return to fiscal stability. Quite simply, managed competition allows private-sector companies to bid against city employees for the right to provide a variety of municipal services. So far, four services have been successfully put out to bid: fleet maintenance, landfill operations, publishing, and street sweeping. All told, because of competition, we’ve cut our operating costs in these areas by $8.4 million a year. Interestingly but not surprisingly, the city’s employees have won

all four competitions. I’m proud of their creativity and drive to perform their work as efficiently as possible. As for the savings, they are being put to good use: to increase operating hours at branch libraries and recreation centers, to hire more police officers and firefighters, and to repave more city streets. We have launched competitions for six more services: street and sidewalk repair, trash pick-up, public utilities customer service, stormwater facilities operation and maintenance, transportation engineering and capital improvement program delivery. Regardless of who wins, I have no doubt that millions more will be saved.

Vista • Mayor Judy Ritter The City of Vista is continuing to expand its efforts toward a more energy efficient approach with the installation of 192 solar photovoltaic (PV) panels on the Gloria E. McClellan Senior Center in Brengle Terrace Park. The PV panels on the center’s rooftops have begun generating solar energy and are expected to produce more than 50 percent of the energy used by the facility. The panel installation was funded by an Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant from the Department of Energy as part of the federal American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.

There was no cost to the city. As well as covering the installation of the solar panels, the grant also paid for the replacement of outdated air conditioning units with higher efficiency units and the replacement of the senior center’s parking lot and building perimeter lights with energy efficient LED lighting. While the solar panel system requires little maintenance, this project will provide significant energy savings to the City, and any reduction in our energy bill, is a positive step. The savings can then be used towards funding other important community projects. The economic benefits will be long lasting for the Vista community.

Oceanside • Mayor Jim Wood $5 Bag Sale Recently I read in the B r o t h e r B e n n o ’ s Newsletter about the $5 Bag Sale and how big of a hit it was at the Brother Benno’s Thrift Shop located at 3965 Mission Avenue. I knew that The Thrift Shop had great prices, but when the sale takes place, it seems that you are provided with a bag and the customer can stuff it full of clothing and pay just $5! This is quite a deal in this day and age and economy. As for The Thrift Shop, when

this sale happens, they are able to offer clothing to everyone at an incredibly low price and make room for new merchandise in their store – obviously a win-win for everyone. REMINDER – the $5 Bag Sale takes place on the last Friday and Saturday of each month. For many in our community, this event helps make ends meet – so be sure to shop and/or donate items to The Thrift Shop whenever possible. Their hours are Monday through Saturday from 10 AM to 5 PM. For more information, contact them at (760) 9677505 or visit their website at www.BrotherBenno.org.

Nome and Paul Van Middlesworth thecomputerfactoryltd.com The Computer Factory Why Big Businesses Don’t Provide Real Customer Service - Part 2 Last week we discussed how globalization, urbanization, and diversity have combined to change America’s commercial culture. There is a perception that multinational companies and large retailer chains have difficulty satisfying our expectations when it comes to customer service. To find out if this assumption is valid we visited a customer service rating website called Customer Service Scoreboard (CSS). This company rates customer service based on feedback. It was a real eye-opener. CSS rates businesses in five performance categories: Issue Resolution, Reachability, Cancellation, Friendliness and Product Knowledge. The scores are totaled to arrive at one of five

Agency Accounting Mistakes Deserve Scrutiny

We checked out the companies in computer related business. The ratings for Dell, HP, Gateway, Lenovo, Sony, Toshiba, ACER and ASUS averaged over 90% negative feedback, solidly in the “terrible” category. Negative feedback percentages for ISPs (Internet Service Providers) were, AT&T and Verizon WiFi 85%, Cox and AT&T’s Uverse over 95% negative. The above customer service contacts were mainly by phone. That customers were not satisfied makes sense to us. We’ve never been able to fix any but the simplest PC and Internet problems over the phone. Perhaps customer service satisfaction levels are better where customers actually deal with another human being, like in the Big Box electronics super stores. Staples customers gave 75% negative feedback, Office Depot 80%, Costco and Fry’s 85% and Best Buy 90% with Best Buy’s Geek Squad also scoring a solid 90% negative.

Every business owner knows that customer satisfaction is the key to success. Businesses that find ways to keep their customers happy succeed, ones that don’t, don’t. The owner of a small business is directly responsible for customer relations. If the owner takes care of his customers, the customers will take care of the business. The employees will reflect the character of the owner because it is in their interest to do so. Motivation for Big Box sales and technical employees are complex. The commissioned sales people are motivated to sell what is best for them, not what is best for you. Technical competence is a rare commodity in the high turnover world of Big Box computer techs so if your problem doesn’t fit the narrow confines of their knowledge base you’re unlikely to get

the best answer. Corporate policies stifle creative thinking and limit flexibility. Employees are measured by how much time or merchandise they sell so they aren’t inclined to waste much time listening to customers. It’s not that top management doesn’t understand the problem, they do; and it isn’t because they have bad employees, they don’t. The problem is that meeting corporate legal and financial objectives often conflicts with open and honest customer relations. Mass merchandisers are a great place to buy things like food and commodity products; they are not a great place to shop for products that we need help with. There are some large companies that do a pretty good job at customer service. Home Depot usually has someone around who can answer questions but we still miss the friendly personal touch of the guys and gals at Star Builders Supply right here in San Marcos.

A small business with this level of customer dissatisfaction would not last long, so why do the big guys survive? Customers don’t have a choice if they want to buy a name brand PC or peripheral. Thes products are only in Big Box stores and customer service is universally

Censored Committee Hearing Cheats Voters In an abusive use of legislative power, the people’s right to open and transparent government was censored last week. The Senate Governance and Finance Committee was scheduled to hear four ballot measures that will be voted on this November. Three of those Propositions, 30, 38 and 39 seek to raise taxes. The Governance Committee was also scheduled to be broadcast on the California Channel which is carried and funded by cable companies across the state. Just as the hearing began the cable feed was cut off. It was later learned that staff from the majority party phoned the California Channel and requested that it be turned off out of fear that the hearings would be used by opponents in campaign commercials.

According to state law, all ballot measures must receive a full legislative hearing for informational purposes. The hearings are an opportunity for both sides to present their cases in what is supposed to be a public, non-biased hearing. What took place in Sacramento last week violated the clear intent of this law. This egregious abuse of power is yet another example of the majority party’s ongoing dishonesty with the voters. Earlier this year they passed a sham budget that increases spending and achieves “balance” by relying on new taxes that may well be rejected in November. Now they don’t want the details of that plan to be accessible to the public. I urge you to read your ballot pamphlets when you receive them this fall and discover for yourself what the majority party is trying to hide.

‘The Sikhs’ Cont. from Page 10 Sikh migration from the then British India began in earnest from the 2nd half of the 19th century when the British had completed their annexation of the Punjab. The British Raj preferentially recruited Sikhs in the Indian Civil Service and, in particular, the British Indian Army, which led to migration of Sikhs to different parts of British India and the British Empire. During the era of the British Raj, semiskilled Sikh artisans were also transported from the Punjab to British East Africa to help in the building of railways. After World War II, Sikhs emigrated from both India and Pakistan, most going to the United Kingdom but many also headed for North America. Some of the Sikhs who had settled in eastern Africa were expelled by Ugandan dictator Idi Amin in 1972. Subsequently, the main 'push' factor for Sikh migration has been economic, with significant Sikh communities now being found in the United Kingdom, Canada, the United States, Malaysia, East Africa, Australia, and Thailand. While the rate of Sikh migration from the Punjab has remained high, traditional patterns of Sikh migration that favoured Englishspeaking countries, particularly the United Kingdom, have changed in the past decade due to factors such as stricter immigration procedures. Sikhs are represented in Indian politics by the current Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, who is the head of the government (the nominal head is the President of India) and wields the supreme authority, including the nuclear button, and the Deputy Chairman of the Indian Planning Commission Montek Singh Ahluwalia. Sikhs in the Indian army Sikhs make up 10–15% of all ranks in the Indian Army and 20% of its officers, while Sikhs form only 1.87% of the Indian population, which makes them over 10 times more likely to be a soldier and officer in the Indian Army than the average Indian. The Sikh Regiment is one of the most highly decorated and is believed to be the most courageous, powerful and skilled regiment of the Indian Army, with 73 Battle Honours, 14 Victoria Crosses, 21 first class Indian Order of Merit (equivalent to the Victoria Cross), 15 Theatre Honours and 5 COAS Unit Citations besides 2 Param Vir Chakras, 14 Maha Vir Chakras, 5 Kirti Chakras, 67 Vir Chakras

and 1596 other gallantry awards. Historically, most Indians have been farmers, and even today 66% (two-thirds) of Indians are farmers. Indian Sikhs are no different and have been predominately employed in the agrobusiness; India's 2001 census found that 39% of the working population of Punjab were employed in this sector (less than the Indian average). The success, in the 1960s, of the Green Revolution, in which India went from "famine to plenty, from humiliation to dignity," was based in the Sikh-majority state of Punjab, which became known as "the breadbasket of India.". The Sikh majority state of Punjab is also statistically the wealthiest (per capita), with the average Punjabi enjoying the highest income in India, three times the national Indian average. The Green Revolution centered upon Indian farmers adapting their farming methods to more intensive and mechanized techniques; this was aided by the electrification of Punjab, cooperative credit, consolidation of small holdings and the existing British Raj developed canal system. UK Sikhs have the highest percentage of home ownership, 82%, out of all UK religious communities. UK Sikhs are the 2nd wealthiest (after the Jewish community) religious community in the UK, with a median total household wealth of £229, 000. The Sikhs have migrated to most parts of the world, and their vocations are as varied as their appearances. Gagandeep Kaur, a member of a Gurudwara Sikh temple in Poway, said Sikhs do not proselytize, which can be a drawback because many people outside the religion may know little about the faith. "Every single faith path is as perfect as the next," she said. "There's no one faith that's more perfect than the other. We believe as Sikhs that you need to choose a path and follow it so you can achieve ultimate reality. We also believe that everyone is equal regardless of caste, creed or gender." "The fact that a Sikh looks different is deliberately so," Kaur said. "We are supposed to be recognizable. In a crowd, when anybody is in need of help, you're supposed to be able to see them. That is part of the entire philosophical concept of who is a Sikh." The Escondido Sikh Temple is located at 1838 Avenida Del Diablo, Escondido, CA 92029.

Letters to the Editor To the Editor: California isn’t the only place looking out for the welfare of ducks and geese. The Compass Group, a British company that caters events such as Wimbledon, has decided it will no longer serve foie gras due to ethical concerns. It’s an important reminder that California’s foie gras ban was the right thing to do, even as chefs and restaurants look for sneaky loopholes to continue serving diseased livers to diners. Birds force-fed for foie gras have up to four pounds of grain and fat pumped into their stomachs through metal pipes every day. The pipes sometimes puncture the birds’ throats, and the forcefeeding process causes their livers to balloon to as much as 10 times their natural size, sometimes causing their livers to burst. It is common for birds who have been force-fed to suffer from hepatic encephalopathy, a serious brain ailment that occurs when their livers fail. This seems radical for a moment of gustatory sensation. Hopefully other businesses and states will also find their moral compass and agree that it is better to have a big heart for animals’ welfare than to dine on their engorged livers, especially when chefs are capable of creating so many other wonderful options.

And I'm reminded of television commercials. Programs are interrupted every few minutes with commercials--and worse still--repeating the same commercials to the insidious level of brainwashing, and always, the commercials higher in volume than the program itself. Advertisements have been a part of American lives for at least one hundred and fifty years, but now it 's a constant presence in our lives. I know they pay for newspapers (subscriptions do not raise enough revenue) and they pay, too, for radio and TV programs, but they could be presented less frequently and less in your face. But that would mean less profits for radio and television stations, all of whom(with the exception of public radio and TV) sell air time. I don't know what can be done about it. Maybe contact with regular mail and email the companies that advertise in the media, asking for moderation in the frequency of advertisements and advertisements that are less offensive, and add that if these modest suggestions are not met, we will not buy their products. But, of course, that would take a mass campaign of an outraged public; and probably there are many people who are not bothered by advertisements and accept it as part of living in a modern society. However, the media uses words to exhort for profit, which is a corruption of the true purpose of words, and that purpose is for human beings to communicate with each other.
