Volume 43- No. 34
Editor’s Note: Several weeks ago we took a look at exploration of central and northern California as well as Wyoming, Washington state, and Utah. Let’s get in our Time Machine and go back a little further and look a bit closer to home. By Frank Lorey III Juan Baptista de Anza was wellsuited to explore the desert Southwest. He was born on the Arizona-Mexico border in 1732, both grandson and son of Spanish soldiers. His father had been killed by the Apaches, so he knew the dangers of the unexplored desert lands. His name will forever be attached to the desert east of San Diego, The Paper - 760.747.7119

where he was the first to explore. When Anza was old enough, he joined the military and was quickly promoted up the ranks to eventually hold the position his father once held--Captain of the Spanish Presidio at Tubac, Arizona, (south of present-day Tucson). While there, he led expeditions that put down uprisings of the Pima and Seri Indians in Sonora, Mexico. This started his reputation as a more than capable frontiersman. The Spanish began colonizing Alta California in 1769. This involved a long sea voyage against the prevailing winds and the California Current. The problem
was to find a land route. De Anza heard of a California Indian called Sebastian Tarabal who had fled from Mission San Gabriel to Sonora and took him as guide. Through the local Pima Indians, Anza heard word of white men passing along the coast of California. This was the 1769 Father Serra expedition to Monterey that included founding many of the missions. It wasn't until 1772 that word reached Tubac, and the reports were just that many white men were passing at some distance on the other side of the Colorado River. Anza figured that if word could extend that far, so could a trade route--all the way to the coast. Anza offered to
lead an expedition, and Viceroy Bucareli in Mexico City approved the plans in 1773. Anza started rounding up the supplies he would need, and hoped to start westward in December, but it wasn't until January 9th, 1774, that all was in place. In the meantime, he had conferred with the missionary Father Francisco Garces who had visited the Yuma region and had once been all the way west to what is now Calexico. Garces gave nothing but encouragement to the effort to open a trade route. Thirty-four people set off on the journey--Anza, Garces, Father Juan Diaz, another missionary,

There were 100 horses and mules carrying 35 loads of provisions and arms, and 65 head of cattle. The journey that started on January 9th did not reach the Colorado River until February 7th. This started the most dangerous portion, across the Colorado desert of what is now Imperial and San Diego counties, as well as portions of Mexico. The desert route covered 267 miles, but due to backtracking they actually went 342 miles. Just west of Yuma, on the Colorado River, they entered the lands of the Yuma Indians. He sent a messenger to the chief, Captain Palma, to test the friendliness of the Indians. Palma's large band had been well-treated in previous contacts with the Spanish, so it was not a problem. Anza presented a few gifts to the chief, and the Indians helped the party across the river. He described the Indians as having "naturally good features...but they can look ferocious by painting all the body, especially the face."
Give Us This Day Our Daily Chuckle
The men went entirely naked, and did their abundant hair up with mud, even sleeping upright to avoid disturbing their "hairdos." They wore earrings, and perforated the nose to put cluster of feathers through. Overall, Anza reported they "succeed in making themselves look not only ferocious but horrible." Women wore short skirts made of bark, and a few wealthy ones had animal skins or furs for coverings. Along the river the Indians grew crops. He noted abundant wheat, maize, beans, gourds, watermelons, and muskmelons being grown by the industrious natives. The soil was very fertile, being deposited by the river. Once they left the river, all that Anza and his men could see were miles and miles of sand dunes. His Indian guide became lost in them, so the party turned down river and entered what is now Mexico. They ran into the Cojat tribe, who acted as if they wanted to attack the Spaniards. They boasted about how they could easily kill Anza's men and divide up all of the supplies. With all of his Indian experience, Anza decided they were bluffing and rode directly through their village unharmed. At Santa Olaya the expedition left the river to move more west-

This week, a compendium of wit, wisdom and neat stuff you can tell at parties. Enjoy! The Driver’s License A friend of a friend of mine was sitting on a lawn sunning and reading, when he was startled by fairly late model car crashing through a hedge and coming to rest on his lawn. He helped the elderly driver out and sat him on a lawn chair. “My goodness,” he exclaimed, “you are quite old to be driving!” “Yes,” he replied, “I am old enough that I don’t need a license.” “The last time I went to my doctor he examined me, and asked if I
A woman went to a pet shop and immediately spotted a large, beautiful parrot. There was a sign on the cage that said $20.00. "Why so little?" she asked the pet store owner. The owner looked at her and said, "Look, I should tell you first that this bird used to live in a house of prostitution, and sometimes it says some pretty vulgar stuff." The woman thought about this, but decided she had to have the bird anyway. She took it home and hung the bird's cage up in her living room, and waited for it to say something. The bird looked around the room, then at her, and said, "New house, new madam." The woman was a bit shocked at the implication, but then thought "that's really not so bad."
ward. They encountered another friendly tribe, but the date was fateful--it was Friday, February 13th. The tribe pointed out Signal Mountain to the west (west of modern-day Mexicali), and said there was water nearby. Anza thought they could make that distance in one day, but was horribly wrong. They lost the trail in sand dunes, could not find much of any water, and the mules and horses began to give out. Anza proposed splitting up the party and supplies, but Father Garces argued against it. He said there was a village to the south with abundant water and pasturage, so they went further out of the way to find it. When they reached the site on February 17th, the village had been abandoned and the water supply had dried up. A couple of soldiers were sent to scout further south, but found only stagnant water. Anza had no choice but to turn back to the Colorado River, and along the way many of the cattle died. He did not realize they were already half way across the desert, and if they had pushed on they could have found water. Some of the party reached the river on the 19th, but the worst off did not make it until the 23rd. Some of the supplies were left there at Santa Olaya, along with seven
When her two teenage daughters returned from school, the bird saw them and said, "New house, new madam, new girls." The girls and the woman were a bit offended, but then they began to laugh about the situation considering how and where the parrot had been raised. Moments later, the woman's husband, Keith, came home from work. The bird looked at him and said, "Hi Keith." "Warshing" Clothes Recipe Never thought of a "warsher" in this light before...what a blessing! Imagine having a recipe for this! Years ago, an Alabama grandmother gave the new bride the following recipe exactly as written and found in an old scrapbook with spelling errors and all.

men to guard the cache. Anza called a meeting, and the majority wanted to continue with the expedition. Only the best horses and ten mules would continue, along with 25 men. On March 2nd they set forth again, heading southwest. They reached Laguna Salada, saw large schools of fish, and camped at a well on the northern end called San Eusebio. They were just south of the eventual border with the United States. The well gave out when about half of the animals had been watered. In later years a Spanish sword was even found in this area, likely a relic of the expedition. Anza sent his Indian guide ahead, who claimed he knew where water could be found. He never returned, and his possessions were found the next morning where he had apparently slept for a while. Again, several soldiers were sent ahead to scout, and this time they did find good water. The party crossed into the Yuha Basin ten miles west of Signal Mountain, and camped at Yuha Well, which Anza called "Santa Rosa de las Lajas." Today the area is popular as a fossil hunting area,

‘Anza’s Expedition’ Cont. from Page 2 abundant in oyster shells. There is a monument to Anza along the dirt Anza Trail Road, south of Highway 8. Anza realized they could have headed almost due west from Yuma and made it in a couple of days or so, but exploring unknown country these kinds of detours and delays were inevitable. They were actually only 54 miles from where they left the river. The other Indian in the party, Sebastian Tarabal, recognized the landscape and said he guaranteed water was just ahead. Anza headed north on March 10th, skirting the eastern edge of Coyote Mountain (southeast of Anza-Borrego State Park). He headed up the expanse of the valley of Carrizo Wash, then followed the wash to the northeast, and at 1 o'clock found the water. It was located in a large marsh which he named San Sebastian after the Indian who guided him there. They found abundant water and pasturage, along with an Indian village. Today this area is a rich archaeological area, and is known as Harper's Well. Anza described the waters as "very salty, except one spring where we are which is fair-sized and running." The Indians were what he called "mountain Indians," living on acorns and deer that they had hunted. He described them as "a naked people, of ordinary height like those further back, but less robust." He noted they had a great abundance of bows and arrows. The next day the expedition headed to the northwest, but had many delays bogging down in the numerous marshy areas. Eventually the party crossed what has become Highway 78 at a place named "Los Puertecitos," where there is a monument to the expedition. The monument is just east of Ocotillo Wells. Anza's party followed San Felipe Creek and Borrego Wash until they reached more good water and pasturage at San Gregorio, now known as Borrego Spring. The actual spring is located about six miles southeast of the town of Borrego Springs, and another historical marker is at the location. They encountered more Indians at the spring, the "Cajuenches." Garces described them as having many "rabbit-sticks" which they use to hunt rabbits, and also some deer. Both men and women carried war-lances, and
the women wore skirts made of rabbit fur on the behind, and bark fiber on the front. He also noted they all had badly decayed teeth. They rested for a while at this spring, before heading past what is now Borrego Springs and up Coyote Canyon following Coyote Creek. Three miles into the canyon they found Santa Caterina spring, a permanent water source with some pasturage and willow trees for shade. The area today is known as the Lower Willows, a popular spot on 4-wheel drive routes. There is also another historical marker near the spring. Pretty much the entire canyon was populated with Indians, described by Garces as being "scrawny." He noted they lived "on the same food as the mountain Cajuenches" (rabbits, mescal, pinenuts, acorns, and the occasional deer). They continued up the canyon and on March 15th reached the broad valley at the top, where the town of Anza is now located. From here the rest of the journey was literally downhill. They had then reached their goal of the western mountains on that March 15th, escaping the desert lands. From there they arrived at the San Gabriel Mission on March 22nd, and finally made Monterey on April 18th. Anza returned to Tubac much more quickly, reaching home on May 27th. Anza's expedition had survived the crossing of the Colorado Desert, now not much more than a winter playground for those of us with vehicles. There are still areas of his trail that have not changed that much in the 238 years since he blazed the path, but he could not have foreseen the day of towns and desert resorts sprouting up along the way. Only a few short stretches of his journey are now paved roads. A narrow-gauge mining railroad covers one leg north of Plaster City. Some portions are still dirt roads mostly suited to four-wheel drive, and some portions have reverted back to unspoiled desert land. If you look in the distance, you can almost imagine Spanish soldiers on horses trailing pack animals as they head for the next water hole. This expedition was closely watched by Viceroy and King and on October 2, 1774, he was promoted to the rank of lieutenantcolonel and ordered to lead a group of colonists to Alta California. The Spanish were desirous of reinforcing their presence in Alta California as a buffer against Russian colonization of
the Americas advancing from the north, and possibly establish a harbor that would give shelter to Spanish ships. The expedition got under way in October 1775 and arrived at Mission San Gabriel in January 1776, the colonists having suffered greatly from the winter weather en route. Having fulfilled his mission from the Viceroy, he continued on with Father Pedro Font and a party of twelve others exploring north and found the first overland route to San Francisco Bay. In de Anza's diary on March 25, 1776, he states that he "arrived at the arroyo of San Joseph Cupertino (now Stevens Creek), which is useful only for travelers. Here we halted for the night, having come eight leagues in seven and a half hours. From this place we have seen at our right the estuary which runs from the port of San Francisco." Pressing on, de Anza located the sites for the Presidio of San Francisco and Mission San Francisco de Asis in present day San Francisco, California, on March 28, 1776. He did not establish the settlement; it was established later by José Joaquín Moraga. While returning to Monterey, he located the original sites for Mission Santa Clara de Asis and the town of San José de Guadalupe (modern day San Jose, California), but again did not establish either settlement. In 1781 the Yuma revolted against the Spanish. Although there were punitive expeditions, they could not re-establish their position at the Yuma crossing and de Anza's route was blocked, thereby slowing the growth of California.) On his return from this successful expedition in 1777 he journeyed to Mexico City with the chief of the lower Colorado River area Quechan (Yuma) Native American tribe who requested the establishment of a mission. On August 24, 1777, the Viceroy of New Spain appointed Anza as the Governor of the Province of Nuevo México, the present day U.S. state of New Mexico. Governor de Anza led a punitive expedition against the Comanche Native Americans who had been repeatedly raiding Taos in 1779. With his Ute Tribe and Apache Native American allies, and around 800 Spanish soldiers, he went north through the San Luis Valley, entering the Great Plains at what is now Manitou Springs, Colorado. Circling "El Capitan" (current day Pikes Peak), he surprised a small force of the Comanche near present day Colorado Springs. Pursuing them south down Fountain Creek, he crossed the Arkansas River near present day Pueblo, Colorado. He
found the main body of the Comanche on Greenhorn Creek, returning from a raid in Nuevo México, and won a decisive victory. Chief Cuerno Verde, for whom Greenhorn Creek is named, and many other leaders of the Comanche were killed. In late 1779, Anza and his party found a route from Santa Fe to Sonora, west of the El Camino Real de Tierra Adentro. His various local military expeditions against tribes defending their homelands were often successful, but the Quechan (Yuma) Native American tribe which he had established peace with earlier rebelled, and he fell out of favor with the military commander of the Northern Frontier, the frontier-general. In 1783 Anza lead a campaign against the Comanche on the eastern plains and by 1784 they were suing for peace. The last of the Comanche chiefs eventually acceded and a formal treaty was concluded on 28 February 1786 at Pecos Pueblo. This paved the way for traders and the development of the Comanchero trade. Juan Bautista de Anza remained as governor of Nuevo Mexico (New Mexico) until 1787 when he returned to Sonora. He was appointed commander of the Presidio of Tucson in 1788 but died before he could depart and take office. Anza was survived by his wife. Juan Bautista de Anza died in Arizpe Mexico, and was buried in the Church of Nuestra Señora de la Asunción de Arizpe. In 1963, with the participation of delegations from the University of California, Berkeley and San Francisco, he was disinterred and reburied in a new marble memorial mausoleum at the same Church. Juan Bautista de Anza was the first European to establish an overland route from Mexico, through the Sonoran Desert, to the Pacific coast of California. New World Spanish explorers had been seeking such a route through the Desert Southwest for more than two centuries. In 1990, U.S. Congress created the Juan Bautista de Anza National Historic Trail, comprising the overland route of the colonizing expedition from Tubac, Arizona to San Francisco, California. Today, the route is followed closely by paved highways. Portions of the trail are also available to hike or ride by horseback -- between Tumacacori National Historic Park and Tubac State Historic State Park in Arizona and in Anza-Borrego Desert State Park

It is the health system’s third hospital and the first new hospital in North County in more than 30 years. For years, the $1 billion facility was the largest hospital construction project in the United States. At 7 a.m., Palomar Health staff began moving the first of 84 patients from the original Palomar Medical Center in downtown Escondido to the new Palomar Medical Center at 2185 Citracado Parkway in western Escondido. All patients were carefully monitored during their 3-milesplus trip and arrived safely at the new hospital. “It took an army of people, staff from throughout the district,
Local News our physicians, volunteers, Pacific Ambulance Services and San Diego County Emergency Medical Services to make this possible,” said Palomar Health President & CEO Michael H. Covert. “As I visited throughout the areas I was in awe of the effort and compassion displayed and the sensitivity to those in need. Everyone rose to the occasion.” Eighteen ambulances were used in the historic relocation, which was completed according to plan and without incident. Each patient transfer took about 35 minutes from bed to bed. By 2:30 p.m., all transferred patients were resting in their own spacious, private room under the care of medical professionals at the new hospital. The new Emergency Department and Trauma Center also began receiving patients, which helped raise the number of patients at the new hospital. At least 50 people had visited the Emergency Department by 5:30 p.m., including the first patient who arrived under her own power at 7 a.m. 9am, got back into home country at 5:30pm.

Palomar Health had been prepared to transfer as many as 130 patients but was able to reduce the count by curtailing elective surgeries in the days leading to the move. On Sunday, patients who were ready to be discharged at the downtown hospital were not moved to the new hospital. The California Department of Public Health approved final licensing for the hospital on Wednesday after two rigorous days of review. The license became effective Sunday. The new Palomar Medical Center opened as a licensed 288-bed acute care hospital, providing inpatient care, surgical and interventional services, and emergency and trauma services. It will eventually be built out to a maximum of 650 beds. About 1,700 health-care providers and supporting staff will work at the new 740,000square-foot hospital, most of them transfers from the original Palomar Medical Center at 555 East Valley Parkway.

As many as 3,000 foster age youth become homeless in San Diego each year. When they reach age 18, they are no longer eligible for placement. However, without a steady home and college prep assistance, many of these youth have no way to support themselves and often turn to the streets. Until now . . .! North County Lifeline is converting their former office on North Indiana Street into LifeSpring House, a home for Transitional Aged Youth. This home will bridge the gap between when the youth ages out of the system and when s/he is able to financially support themselves. In addition to housing, case managers and other Lifeline programs will be onsite to help these youth gain job training, become employed, learn financial literacy skills, and become a self-supporting citizen. This will be more than just a home for these youth – it’s also a place of hope. As for the Navy’s help? Boy, those sailors sure know how to work! In just one day, they revitalized the front yard, cleared the back yard, created the irrigation and sprinkler system, and painted the main wall. Melissa Schlueter, Volunteer Coordinator, loved working with the sailors. “Each time I took a moment to talk with the sailors, they asked about the youth that were going to be living in this house. They
were very happy they could help,” said Melissa. Lifeline is very happy too. Thanks in part to the help from the Sailors, the TAY home is scheduled to open its doors to five youth in January 2013.

Lt. Loarie described his experience as, “The program has already had an impact on how I think and act at work. LAPD West Point Leadership Program helped me take what I learned in the classroom each week I was gone and put it to use the next week I came back to EPD. The work was relevant, timely, and meaningful. I left the program with 21 new friends in law enforcement that I hope to stay connected with for the rest of my career.”

Page 10 - August 23, 2012 ‘Local News’ Cont. from Page 7 There was no evidence of either prescription or illicit drugs in his sysem, nor alcohol. What no autopsy can ever answer regarding a suicide is, why? Seau, 43 years old, was wealthy, successful, admired by his family, friends and community. No one saw any dark clouds on the horizon that would suggest anything even remotely resembling suicide was on the horizon. His brain tissue was examined and nothing out of the ordinary was found. He did not leave a suicide note, the report said. But Seau sent text messages to his exwife and their three children saying he loved them, according to earlier reports. Seau's girlfriend found his body about 9:35 a.m. May 2. The 6-foot-3-inch, 275-pound football player was on the bed in the guest room of beachfront home. A Smith & Wesson .357 Magnum revolver with one spent round and five hollow-point rounds in the chamber rested at his side. Police discovered that the weapon was not registered and impounded it, according to the medical examiner's report. The report said there was no indication of foul play, or drug or alcohol abuse and no immediate evidence of brain injury. Seau drank socially and did not smoke, nor did he have a history of illicit drug use, according to the report. Oceanside Shooting: Police Investigating Oceanside police are looking for a gunman who shot two men Thursday evening. There was a fight that developed between several people near Mission Avenue and Cleveland Street in Oceanside, at about 9pm. The two victims had stopped to watch the fight.
Sunny, our newest arrival, is as bright and friendly as her name implies. Sunny is still young at 8 months but is very well behaved and doing very well in her training. She is crate trained too!! She Chiweenie…a a is Doxie/Chihuahua blend and has a wonderful softness to her hypoallergenic coat. She is very good on her walks and likes to cuddle gently with her people. She gets along with other pets and people. Like all our pups Sunny 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
The suspect was described as a male, believed to be 17 to 20 years old, and, according to Oceanside Police Lt. Leonard Mata, had been seen brandishing a weapon. The victims, ages 20 and 21, said they were shot as they ran south on Cleveland Street. They were treated at a hospital for gunshot wounds to an extremity and were released. The victims claim they do not know the identity of the shooter or the motive for the shooting. Trash Truck in Rancho Bernardo Catches Fire According to an emergency dispatcher, a trash truck caught on fire Tuesday while working in Rancho Bernardo. Firefighters quickly extinguished the fire. Authorities were called at 8:02 a.m. to the blaze in the 16000 block of Bernardo Heights Parkway, according to the dispatcher. The fire was out within an hour, according to the dispatcher. No one was hurt.
Glee is the Pet of the Week at your Rancho Coastal Humane Society in Encinitas. She's a 1 year and 2 month old, 46 pound, spayed, female, Wirehaired Fox Terrier American Staffordshire mix. Glee was transferred to RCHS through our FOCAS program. She always has a big smile on her face. She's smart and eager to learn anything you will teach her. Outside, she loves to run and play with other dogs. Indoors, she's a very good couch-holder-downer. Glee's adoption fee of $145 includes up to date vaccines, veterinary exam, spay, and microchip. Meet Glee at Rancho Coastal Humane Society, 389 Requeza Street in Encinitas. Adoption hours are 11 to 5 Wednesday through Monday. For more information call 760-753-6413.
‘Geico Gecko’ Cont. from Page 7 September of 2010 she opened one of only two walkin Geico offices in all of San Diego County. She’s located in the WalMart Shopping Center just off Nordahl at Hiway 78. “The training with AAA was tremendous,” she says. “We learned Auto, Life, Motorcyle, ATV, all types of insurance lines.” Not only is she smart, witty, and attractive . . . but she is a good person! How do we know? Because she has contributed countless volunteer hours for the San Diego County Humane Society, helping to find ‘Forever Homes’ for all types of animals. She has three kittens of her own . . . and is a soft touch if a kitty, cat, puppy or dog need some food, shelter and affection. We call that ‘nice people.’ She’s delighted with her spacious, airy offices at 711 Center Drive, Suite 103.
Natalie is a 2-year-old spayed female Siamese mix, ID 65191. Natalie has the whole package of beauty and personality. Her eyes are a beautiful shade of blue and she has a unique coat that looks like an abstract painting. She is very talkative and has a little chirp of a meow. She gets along with other cats, but she especially enjoys interacting with people. Natalie is available for adoption from the Escondido Humane Society and is one of the featured cats available for adoption at the Escondido PetSmart, 415 N. Escondido Blvd. Her $25 adoption fee in August includes her spay, microchip, up-to-date vaccinations and vet exam. For more information, call (760) 888-2247 or log on to www.escondidohumanesociety.org. The Escondido Humane Society Adoption Center, 3450 E. Valley Parkway, is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Another advantage of having a local walk-in Geico office (there are only 10 in the entire nation) is that you’ll find Spanish speaking agents on site. If/when you call the Geico 800 number, you won’t be able to speak to an agent in Spanish. Speaking of Spanish (which I just was), if you’re planning a trip to Mexico . . . stop in and see Dawn or one of her agents. They write Mexican Insurance for daily, weekly, monthly or yearly policies. You just tell them how many days you’ll be in Mexcico and they’ll write a policy for those days. Many insurance companies offer coverage in Mexico but the Mexican authorities do not recognize American companies as valid insurance in Mexico. If you are in an accident there you could be sent to jail and your vehicle impounded. It is very important to get a Mexican Insurance policy to protect you properly. Finally, Dawn has a gift waiting for you when you come to visit. That, and you can say hello to the Geico gecko.

Escondido • Mayor Sam Abed Escondido Peace March On Saturday, August 25, 2012, the Escondido P o l i c e Department joins Victory Outreach Church, Resurrection Church, other local churches and community members and residents in a Peace March that will be held in Escondido. The Peace March is intended to send the message that Escondido is a great city and our community is united! The march will also highlight the fact Escondido community members work together to reduce violence, improve neighborhoods and collectively create an even safer Escondido for our children. The Peace March is scheduled to begin at 10 a.m. in the parking lot of
Victory Outreach Church located at 1131 East Washington Avenue in Escondido and conclude at Resurrection Church located at 1445 Conway Drive. Resurrection Church will be hosting their annual festival at the same location. Police Department Traffic Officers will escort marchers along the entire march route North on Ash Street to El Norte Parkway and then East to Conway Drive. Transportation will be provided at Resurrection Church to take marchers back to the Victory Outreach parking lot. Event T-shirts will be available for $10 the day of the march at Victory Outreach where the march begins. However, if you don’t want to buy a T-shirt, we ask that you wear a white shirt to show your support.
Rancho Bernardo • Mayor Jerry Sanders This week, crews from our Parks and Recreation Department completed the bulk of the cleanup from an inexcusable vandalism incident in Balboa Park that made headlines around the state. While that incident brought out the worst in a small minority of delinquents, the cleanup effort and its community support has shown what San Diegans are really made of. Late in the evening of August 11, hundreds of people came to Balboa Park for a squirt gun fight that was promoted on social media. The event lacked the nec-
essary permits for a crowd of that size, and some attendees damaged planters, plant life and the plumbing system of the Lily Pond. An iconic fountain on the North Plaza de Panama was vandalized as well. As of Wednesday, most of the restoration on the Pond and Fountain will be complete, thanks to our hard working employees, and generous private donors coordinated by the Friends of Balboa Park. I want to thank everyone who has participated in the clean up for making our park beautiful again, and I promise our residents that our police department continues to investigate the incident.
Vista • Mayor Judy Ritter The City is serious on retaining the employers already established in Vista, and for the second year in a row, will partner with the Chamber next Thursday to survey companies in the Vista Business Park. Volunteer teams will canvass the Business Park to meet with CEOs to identify each company’s individual needs. Responses to questions such as “is your company planning on expanding or hiring more employees?” or “are you planning on relocating, and if so, why?” will provide a wealth of information for city staff to use in refining how to better serve the needs of these and other companies in the
Business Park. The foremost goal of the “Business Walk” is to identify and work with existing employers to ensure they can grow and prosper without leaving the community. Over 800 companies are in the business park and include many local, national, and global corporations. Combined, these companies employ more than 23,000 workers and provide residents and other businesses the services and products they need. With nearly 90% of respondents in the 2011 survey stating they expect business and hiring to remain stable or to grow over the next three years, the economic outlook for Vista is looking positive.
San Marcos • Mayor Jim Desmond Slurry Seal Taking Place on Roadways in San Marcos This September, several streets in San Marcos will receive a slurry seal as part of the city’s ongoing commitment to maintaining its roadways and keeping motorists on the move. The bulk of the work will take place over four weeks. While exact construction dates have not yet been set, the dates and routine construction updates will be posted on the city’s website once available. Detailed maps and works schedules will also be available so residents can find out the exact dates
that their streets will be affected. The application of a slurry seal significantly extends the life of existing pavement by protecting the undersurface from the effects of aging and the environment. During this project, motorists are advised to use caution when traveling through construction zones and may experience minor delays. The city appreciates your patience and understanding as street improvements are completed. For more information, please visit www.san-marcos.net or call the city’s department of public works at (760) 752-7550.
Oceanside • Mayor Jim Wood Staying Fit This Fall! Well it’s time to break out those sneakers, yoga mats and more because the City of Oceanside’s Parks and Recreation Department is going to be offering a variety of leisure classes to help all of us stay active once the summer is over…and just before those delicious recipes are whipped out for the coming fall holidays! Over 100 classes will be offered this quarter and registration for the Fall 2012 classes will start on Monday, August 20. Classes will be offered for children,
adults and seniors and will commence the week of September 17 and run through the week of December 17. This is a wonderful opportunity to take advantage of an activity that not only promotes better emotional and physical health, but enhances self-esteem and relieves stress and boredom. As it is often said, “The first wealth is health” and that is the most precious gift you can give yourself. Just a reminder, space is limited, so be sure and register early by calling Parks and Recreation at (760) 435-5041 or by visiting us at our website, www.oceansiderec.com, and clicking on the Recreation Activity Guide.

Nome and Paul Van Middlesworth thecomputerfactoryltd.com The Computer Factory
Ransomware “The FBI Virus” began showing up during the first days of August. By the end of last week we had seen over a dozen FBI infected computers. FBI isn’t particularly difficult to remove and so far we haven’t had any cases where FBI corrupted the operation system to the extent that Windows needed to be reinstalled. Actually FBI is a fairly wimpy virus as viruses go, however, it does have a mean streak. The FBI virus, officially The “FBI Moneypak Ransomware Virus” is what’s known as a “Ransomware” virus because it holds your PC for ransom. Here’s the way it works.
The PC locks up denying Internet and desktop access. The user is then directed to a (fraudulent) FBI website. This is not really a website but an image that looks like a website that was downloaded at the time of the infection. A message appears “Attention! Your PC is blocked due to at least one of the reasons specified below.” The site then lists several criminal code violations associated with accessing or distributing copyrighted materials or pornography. The site advises that you may avoid criminal prosecution, arrest, fines and imprisonment by paying a $200 fine. Failure to comply within 72hrs will result in criminal prosecution.
There are many sites on the Internet listing procedures for removing the FBI virus. The removal strategy recommended depends on the nature of the infection and the state of the computers defense system. Here at the Computer Factory we use our standard procedure. We remove the infected hard drive, slave it to a scan station and run two different virus scans. Then put it back in the computer and run MS Security Essentials and Malwarebytes. When these programs run clean we check to see if the Windows OS is intact. If it is, the job is done. The FBI virus falls under the general heading of “social engineering” malware. That term
defines malware whose purpose is to trick the user into performing a behavior that benefits the virus creator. We checked our own spam locker and found one today. It said I had won $350,000 Euro’s and a Toshiba notebook in a drawing sponsored by Bill Gates himself. The drawing took place in Spain. To claim my award required I needed only to tell them a few things about myself and then provide my banking information so they could slide the money into my account. I told them I’d like to donate the Toshiba and half the cash to an orphanage of their choosing and to just mail me a check for the rest.
The site explains that payment must be made by “Green Dot Moneypak.” This is a prepaid credit card available from large retail stores like Wal-Mart or Target. The site advises that once the payment is received (by entering the Moneypak number on the phony website) the PC will be unlocked. One of our customers actually followed the procedure, paid the $200 “fine” and waited patiently for two days before bringing his PC to us for a clean-up.

Dangerous Early Release Bill Clears Assembly Democrats in the State Assembly recently passed legislation that will pose a threat to public safety by allowing the early release of dangerous criminals. Specifically, Senate Bill 9 would allow persons who were sentenced to life without parole as juveniles to ask the court for re-sentencing of 25 years to life as long as they have served at least 15 years and can prove they are remorseful. Nearly 300 inmates in the prison system would be eligible for resentencing. This includes Roman Barnes, who was convicted at the age of 16 for brutally beating his 85 year old neighbor to death and then setting the house on fire. I voted against SB 9 and have grave concerns about the
prospect of early release for those who have committed brutal crimes. Not only will the security of our communities be diminished, but it is an injustice to the families of the victims. Families will be subjected to a legal process that would include the re-hearing of the evidence and events that took place during the crimes as well as the possibility of family members having to take the stand to testify for a second time. The passage of SB 9 is also an affront to the will of the voters who passed Proposition 115 in 1990, that provided for the life without parole sentence for juveniles. If you would like to voice your opinion on this legislation please do not hesitate to contact Governor Brown’s office at 916-445-2841 and urge him to veto this dangerous legislation.

North County Singles Scene
more accurate description would be a station where "the commercials virtually never stop," and a station that could win a prize for inflicting on us the most obnoxious commercials.
Dances, Stage Shows, Variety Shows, Karaoke, all in a funfilled, non-threatening atmosphere. Kathy will be writing a weekly column, listing meetings your organization is holding that relates to the Singles Scene, letting you know of events that are coming up that could well serve as a rally point for singles.
Kathy B. We’ve got a brand new feature we’re introducing in The Paper! Meet Kathy B. - a live wire, funfilled lady who knows the fun spots to meet up, the better restaurants, tv shows, tours . . . all the neat places you would love to go and, not incidentally, perhaps meet ‘that special someone.’ Whether you’re looking for just friendship, romance, or some combination of the two, Kathy B. will arrange get-togethers, parties, tours to places like: Wine tasting trips to Temecula Sea World Tours Trips to Dr. Phil and other Los Angeles Based TV shows . . .
No fees, no dues, to join. Just good, wholesome fun, for those who are single, widowed, divorced, or any of the above. Kathy will arrange events that are age appropriate. You’ll attend events with folks in your own age group, or, if a large group, you’ll be gathered together in one specific group which is within your age grouping. Be watching for Kathy’s column beginning next week (August 30th). Meanwhile, if you have suggestions or questions, email them to us at email@example.com.

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. /s/Chef Tanya Petrovna Palm Springs, CA 92262 Dear Editor:
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. /s/Dan D'Amelio Yucaipa, Ca. Sikhs
Every day Americans are fed daily doses of advertisements. The doses are provided in multiple ways: on billboards (near freeways and on the walls of sports events); on radio and TV; in newspapers; and in our regular mail and email.
Lyle, the Sikhs need exposure such as the story you printed about these wonderful people. I always thought when I saw a turban, it was a Muslim under it. Thanks for educating me and so many more people who do not understand the Sikh religion.
In the morning, to get the news headlines, my wife turns on KNX, a radio station that covers all of southern California and can be heard by millions, a station that boasts it's where "the news never stops," but a
I called the Sikhs temple in Escondido and spoke to Baljit. I gave my prayers on the carnage that happened in Wisconsin. /s/Angelo Caruso

Have an awesome day, and know that someone who thinks you're great has thought about you today! ••••• PLEASE Neuter your Pets. And Weird Friends and Relatives. ••••• Did you ever wonder how cops on bikes arrest people? “Alright, get in the basket!” ••••• If I had a dollar for every time I get distraced, I wish I had some ice cream. ••••• A guy is driving around the back woods of Minnesota and he sees a sign in front of a broken down shanty-style house: 'Talking Dog For Sale .' He rings the bell and the owner appears and tells him the dog is in the backyard.
Some mistakes are too much fun to only make once.
The guy goes into the backyard and sees a nice looking Labrador retriever sitting there.
Don't cry because it's over; smile because it happened.
'You talk?' he asks.
We could learn a lot from crayons: some are sharp, some are pretty, some are dull, some have weird names, and all are different colors....but they all exist very nicely in the same box. A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery on a detour.

But the jetting around really tired me out, and I knew I wasn't getting any younger, so I decided to settle down.

• all humanity was created by one God and is part of one human race • the purpose of life is to know and worship God, to acquire virtues, to promote the oneness of humankind and to carry forward an ever-advancing civilization • work performed in the spirit of service is a form of worship • the soul, created at the moment of conception, is destined by God to reach the afterlife, where it will continue to progress until it attains the presence of God.
