Above, the haunting, unsmiling eyes of a villager who had been attacked and nearly killed by a Bengal Tiger by Michael Yon 28 February 2012 “The Sundarbans lies in the massive delta between India and Bangladesh. This is one of the most beautiful but most dangerous places in the world, a place of tigers and crocodiles and dangerous seas and canals. Mamata is just one of about 3,000 ‘tiger widows’ in the Sundarbans.” When a man says, “It’s a jungle out there,” he means, “It’s the Sundarbans.” Among the The Paper - 760.747.7119
many wild and unforgiving places in the approximately 65 countries I’ve traveled, most are fairly safe when approached with good judgment and aforethought. The Sundarbans is not one of those places. Few jungles are this dangerous. The natives here rub shoulders with mortality on a daily basis. And so before venturing into the labyrinth waterways, one should acquire a guide, which in my case was a government employee with a powerful FN-FAL rifle to
ward off man and beast. Competent, local guides are always your best insurance, and if I had a choice of any rifle in the world to bring here, the FN-FAL would be high on the list. And so those boxes were checked. Within about a week previous to my arrival, eight people had been killed and more than a dozen wounded in personal combat with tigers. Nobody knows why the tigers kill so many people here. None of the eight people recently killed were eaten. The tigers often devour their prey, but sometimes they just murder, and of course there is
always a market for tiger parts. It’s a bloody mess. Add to that the giant saltwater crocodiles, sharks, incredibly venomous snakes, mosquitoes and so on and so forth, and the Sundarbans is a mysterious place that remains off of the backpacker beat. I’ve wanted to come here for years but was rudely interrupted by wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. The vast jungle and mangrove swamps cover about 10,000 square kilometers. Many sights and smells can nearly mirror places in Florida, and so at times it felt like home

Anglers who tool around the estuarine river areas of Florida, and who cast for snook near the mangroves, would find reminders in the form of beautiful white egrets, kingfishers and relentless sun. The mostly compliant alligators we see basking in Florida are replaced here by extraordinarily ferocious crocodiles. Noticeably missing are the turtles. Whereas in Florida it would be normal to see a hundred turtles per day sunning themselves on white-worn branches elbowing out of the waters of the Peace River, it can be rare to see even a single turtle after spending long days on many Asian rivers. This is true ranging from the mighty Mekong, to the Mae Ping, the Salween, over to the Ganges or up at the Bramaputra in Nepal. I rarely if ever see turtles in Asia, though there were land turtles in Afghanistan. There has been a program to introduce thousands of snapping turtles into the Indian Ganges
to eat the thousands of human corpses, but apparently the turtles could not keep up. My guess is that the people ate the turtles. Numerous substantial rivers including the Ganges feed the Sundarbans. About one third of the Sundarbans drains from India and the rest from Bangladesh.
Due mostly to Hindu funerary traditions, the Indians dump countless tons of human flesh into “Mother Ganges” (Ganga Ma) each year, which flows and fans to the delta by the crocodiles, the crabs, and the tigers. Some people believe that the Royal Bengal Tigers of the

Twenty Dollars On their wedding night, the young bride approached her new husband and asked for $20.00 for their first lovemaking encounter. In his highly aroused state, her husband readily agreed. This scenario was repeated each time they made love, for more than 40 years, with him thinking that it was a cute way for her to afford new clothes and other incidentals that she needed. Arriving home around noon one day, she was surprised to find her husband in a very drunken state. During the next few minutes, he explained that his employer was going through a process of corporate downsizing, and he had been let go. It was unlikely that, at the age
Sundarbans may have gotten their taste for man from the stream of corpses flowing into their abode. The Ganges is tremendous. I’ve been lucky enough to see many faces of Ganga Ma, and spend many a day and night along her banks, and on boats in India. In a world with many rivers unnamed, Ganga is eclipsed only by the Amazon and Congo rivers in sheer volume. In full flood only the Amazon is larger. Fittingly, headwaters for Ganga Ma include snowmelt from the very distant Mt. Everest. And so water flows from Mt. Everest, through the mysteries of Nepal and India, through the wonders of the Sundarbans finally into the Bay of Bengal where it mixes with the seas.
people petrified of snakes is almost comical. Practically nobody dies from snakebites in America. The chances are far higher of being hit by lightning. The most deadly snakes in the US are still second-chance serpents, like rattlers or moccasins. If a diamondback hits you, you’ll almost certainly live because you’ll probably get to a hospital and suffer through. But if a cobra or other supersnake hits a villager, he’s likely finished. There are about 216 types of snakes just in India, of which about 52 are venomous. Nearly all the deaths are caused by “The Big Four”: Indian Cobra; Common Krait (the bed snake); Russell’s Viper (which Indians call “Daboia”—the lurker); and the Saw Scaled Viper, a vicious little snake that some people consider the most deadly in the world. There are many lists for the “most dangerous” or “most venomous” snakes in the world. The snakes that count most are not the ones with

Calmly, his wife handed him a bank book which showed more than forty years of steady deposits and interest totaling nearly $1 million. Then she showed him certificates of deposits issued by the bank which were worth over $2 million, and informed him that they were one of the largest depositors in the bank. She explained that for more than three decades she had 'charged' him for sex, these holdings had multiplied and these were the results of her savings and investments. Faced with evidence of cash and investments worth over $3 million, her husband was so astounded he could barely speak, but finally he found his voice and blurted out, 'if I'd had any idea what you were doing, I would have given you all my business!' That's when she shot him. You know, sometimes, men just don't know when to keep their mouths shut. Women are like phones: They

The deadly Krait likes to come inside homes where it often slithers in bed with people. Its bite is so painless that many victims do not realize they have been envenomated. Some Indians believe the Krait just licks people. Victims are found dead in their beds, or wake up and die. Cobras are not much better; they also like to move into people’s homes to chase rats. Getting bitten by a cobra is like being blasted by a shotgun. There was once a practice of putting cobra venom inside musket balls and arrowheads, though I have no idea if this still occurs. In India alone, it is believed that snakes kill up to 50,000 people per year. The lure of the Sundarbans is strong. Moreover, this general area of the world is increasingly important to the United States and so it’s good to understand something of the neighborhood. Bangladesh was formerly known as East Pakistan. It’s about 90% Muslim and the balance mostly Hindu. Bangladesh is a young country in the old world with history as complex as the mangroves. In 1971, East Pakistan split from West Pakistan (our current headache for Afghanistan, etc.), and East Pakistan became Bangladesh. The divorce was bloody and Bangladeshis have little love for current-day Pakistan. We have military cooperation with Bangladesh. As an American I was well received and felt welcome. Our Special Forces have worked with the Bangladeshi military. Though Bangladesh is one of the poorest countries on Earth—and is ravaged every year with floods that would be significant historical events in the United States—the people seem remarkably happy and were extraordinarily friendly without the commensurate ripoffs that one finds in north and central India, and to a lesser degree in Sri Lanka, and far lesser still in nearby Nepal.
Some people believe that radical elements wish to impose a Taliban-esque state onto Bangladesh, making it an even more interesting place to become familiar with, though compared with places like Afghanistan, terrorism is negligible and the greater threats for a man on journey are from common sources, such as mosquitoes, bad water, and the same sort of crime that can be found in Mexico or Los Angeles. Bangladesh is the most crowded country on Earth. The lowland bordering the Bay of Bengal makes it acutely vulnerable to tsunami. Much of the country is so low that a minor sloshing from the sea can be catastrophic. The earthquake threat is of cataclysmic proportion. Powerful shifting can change the course of the major rivers and erase huge numbers of people in a single moonless night, sweeping them wholesale through the darkness toward the Bay of Bengal. And so there we were. Deep, deep in the Sundarbans on a boat. We got out occasionally and found in dried mud the tracks of a tiger cub and momma. For every tiger print there were hundreds of deer prints. Monkeys and spotted deer were a common sight. Monkeys more so than the deer. Locals say the monkeys and deer cooperate and warn each other of tigers. The crocodiles can be huge, and I’ve heard stories from the India side of people sacrificing babies to crocodiles, though I doubt the Indian authorities would permit that these days. Various human sacrifice is still a problem in India but authorities seem to be making progress tamping it down. There are frequent credible stories, such as that in Bangladesh of the bricklayer whose head was burned in a kiln after a fortune teller said the sacrifice would redden the bricks, and therefore fetch a higher price. Some Bangladeshis believe that sacrificing human heads will strengthen bridges. It is unlikely that the vast majority of these events are reported. This week yet another report of a cannibal monkey man in India: “The Mumbai police have rubbished rumors doing rounds at
several suburban pockets in the city where people are living in fear of a gang or a ‘monkey man’ that is kidnapping children and raping women before consuming them.” Some Indians believe the monkey men smear themselves with grease, such as the “grease devils” in nearby Sri Lanka, who slippery themselves up to avoid being caught. Grease devils and rumors of grease devils have led to considerable violence when the gossip causes panic. Strange social panic attacks based on fact, fiction, or both, unfold so frequently in South Asia that I cannot keep track. Along for security was the man with the clean rifle. The FN-FAL was smooth from wear and he kept it at my feet. I asked if it was loaded, and he pulled out the magazine and ejected a cartridge and handed it to me, saying he had twenty. He handled the rifle safely at all times. He wasn’t just some guy to whom they issued a brown uniform and powerful military weapon. He was accustomed to holding the rifle. Maybe he had been a soldier. He didn’t need 20 bullets for a tiger. One or two from that powerful rifle would take care of anything a cat could do. He said that if you fire one shot into the air, the tiger bolts. But there are pirates and poachers. There are even boats with prostitutes in some areas. Human smugglers are said to kidnap or buy children from various countries, and they live in the wilds and on boats in the Sundarbans. Global human trafficking is immense and complex. My grandmother used to warn that gypsies would kidnap children. Interestingly, up near Dhaka, the capital, I went to a river gypsy village. The men had no problem with my photographing everyone, including the children, but there was one young girl they did not want photographed, which during the melee of gypsy kids, I photographed anyway. I don’t know what the going price for kids is, but some tigers are said to go for up to $70,000. A tiger might as well be on the FBI’s Top Ten to command such a bounty. Every villager from here to
Chitwan knows that one tiger is worth more than his entire family will ever make in a lifetime, but children are far easier to find and market. During honey-collecting season, villagers leave the boats and push deeper onto land, and the tigers hang out by the bees and kill the honey collectors. The Royal Bengal Tigers attack the neck from behind, so the honey collectors wear masks facing backwards to confuse the tigers. They say the tigers have caught onto that trick. Tigers will swim out to small boats to take fishermen at night. On the second day, I asked Mr. Rifle to take us to a village where a man had recently been attacked. The villagers were Hindus and had never met an American. My photographs did not always catch them smiling despite that the people seemed very happy for the guest. Mr. Tiger never smiled. He was stiff from the attack and had difficulty turning his head. Sometimes the tigers come into the huts at night but if a tiger holes up in a hut, the villagers are apt to surround the hut with fishing nets and trap it. When the cyclones come, villagers must escape to cyclone shelters or risk being washed away. It’s nothing for a cyclone to sweep up from the Bay of Bengal and kill thousands of people. Powerful storms in the Bay of Bengal can gather quickly. With little warning, unfavorable geography and weak preparations, the people are smashed with world-class hurricanes. The 1970 Bhola cyclone killed up to 500,000 people and was one of the worst natural disasters known to man. For every human lost in Hurricane Katrina, approximately 250 were lost in Bhola. The only things this place is missing are man-eating plants and an angry volcano. If a man can live here and not pray to God, he’s a true atheist. The Sundarbans is a perfect breeding ground for extreme superstition. ‘Tigers, Crocs . . .’ Cont. on Page 5

Hortencia Perez who was 29 years old was driving an older model Honda Accord. Perez parked her vehicle in the bike lane along the east curb line of Rancho Santa Fe Road. Perez exited her vehicle and entered the number three north bound lane of travel on foot. Perez was struck by a Toyota Highlander driven by a 17 year old driver. Perez was transported to Scripps La Jolla Hospital where she later passed away from her injuries. The collision is under investigation by the Carlsbad Police Traffic Division.

Escondido Blvd. On Friday, July 27, at about 4:00 AM, Escondido detectives and SWAT officers served a Search Warrant at a home in the 900 block of La Moree (City of San Marcos). Police found two adults and three children in the home when they served the Search Warrant. They arrested Mercedes Rodriguez (21 years old- San Marcos resident) for drug charges and for child endangerment. Rodriguez is the mother of two of the children that were at the home. Her children were taken into protective custody and will be under the care of Child Protective Services. The third child at the home had been visiting.

Tiger Man had been out in the nearby jungle collecting wood and other materials to make these huts. He had no warning before the cat hit him. His eyes never changed expression. Some troops get this look when they’ve seen too much combat. He was friendly but never laughed when the others laughed, nor did he crack any hint of a smile. Superstition is king of many deserts and jungles. If you come into a village, and someone falls from a tree and dies, it might be best for you to move out. Many a traveler no doubt has met his tragic end for some superstitious therapy, to set villagers’ minds at ease that the rip in the universal fabric has been mended. In the Sundarbans, when a man is killed by a tiger, his wife is believed to have brought bad luck and she and the children are vanquished: “[T]he tiger widows…viewed as Low back pain can be a crippling experience.

Today in Afghanistan, over the Koran burnings, that cleansing appeasement takes the form of bullets and car bombs.

Special Military-themed free preview will honor military, veterans, and their families – On Saturday, August 11, from 1-4pm, at Oceanside Library, 330 North Coast Hwy., Oceanside, there will be a special preview of the Oceanside International Film Festival event. It will be free for military, veterans, and their families (with military ID & advance registration), and $5/general civilian public (with advance registration. The purpose of this screening session is to give a sneak peek of the full four-day Festival, to run from August 16-19, and to honor the military. Two military-oriented full length documentaries will be shown: “Flat Daddy” and “Voices of a Never Ending Dawn.” The two films depict war eras separated by a century, but they strongly echo with each other on many topics; the first about the hardship U.S. military families suffer and their ways of coping with it in modern days. The second one is about the hardship U.S. troops experienced during deployment in World War I and how their families courageously fought to bring them home from a mission gone wrong on a foreign soil. “The Beauty of the Ordinary” Art Show The works of artist Katherine Pupping will be displayed at the Rancho Buena Vista Adobe from August 11-September 3.

‘Tigers, Crocs . . .’ Cont. from Page 5 “…[T]he decision to kill the boy was the easy part. It was the sacrifice of one infant for the good of the entire tribe—a rite that some of the elders had witnessed hundreds of times...the tribe’s leaders were less certain of what they should do about the boy’s twin brother, who had died of sickness shortly after birth. After some debate, including a pensive examination of a goat’s intestines, they decided the dead child must have been mingi…they dug up the corpse, bound it to the living boy, paddled a canoe into the center of the Omo River and threw them both into the murky brown water.” CNN: Is the tide turning against the killing of 'cursed' infants in Ethiopia? Mr. Tiger had a Bengal tiger on his back. He struggled to survive but the cat was strong and was winning. He said five or six other men attacked the tiger with sticks, but the cat fought back. One can only imagine the suddenness of a tiger weighing hundreds of pounds sinking its teeth into your neck, pinning your head to the

If the cyclones, serpents, mosquitoes and tigers aren’t enough, there’s the Sundarban crocodiles. We saw many, and the largest was bigger than most of the fishermen’s boats. These are Estuarine Crocs and keeping in context with the Sundarbans, they are maneaters. They snatch people off the banks and boats.
There are stories around the world about sacrifices to crocodiles. Along the Ganges, Hindu women of yestertimes were said to hold a baby by the arm until a crocodile came to take it, and then she would toss the baby to the croc and watch it devoured.
‘Man About Town’ Cont. from Page 4 Under brilliant blue sky's we found a school of porpoise off of the Jaime Bank Northwest of Cabo. Some of you may or may not know that Yellowfin Tuna or "Ahi" swim beneath porpoise as the Ahi somehow know that the porpoise use sonar to locate schools of bait fish. We ended up with 6 Yellowfin from 15-30 lbs. We hooked a Dorado or "MahiMahi" that was a Bull or male that we estimate at 40-50 lbs. That fish was lost right at the boat as the deckhand was trying to gaff it. I invited Miguel, the property manager of the condo association where I am staying along for the trip and he was the one who lost the fish. The man was devastated. He didn't do anything wrong. He fought the fish well for 30 mins and the hook simply came out of the fishes mouth. We all felt so bad for the guy. Oh well, that's fishing. Look for lots of action on the big screen tvs at Mike’s BBQ and their sports lounge seems they have partnered up with the San Diego Chargers. Mankind uses therapy to assuage its fears. Sometimes the therapy comes in the form of drowning babies, feeding them to the crocodiles, or in casting out the tiger widows. Laws against human sacrifice are enforced only when those making the laws are more powerful than those who continue with human sacrifice. There is no significant difference between this and what we see today in Afghanistan with the fanatical reaction to the Koran burnings. Dozens of people have already died. There was a large car bomb yesterday morning in Jalalabad, for which the Taliban claimed credit for killing at least nine more people. Most of the killing is by Afghans of Afghans. If those committing this human sacrifice were a small tribe in Africa warding off “mingi,” we would instantly recognize that their behavior is unacceptable. If someone burned some papers, no matter how much offense it caused, and a tribe in Africa started a bonfire for babies, it

Is anyone else being bugged by the campaign of President Obama? Daily, we have been inundated with unsolicited, unwelcome emails, soliciting our support and alerting us to ‘Man About Town’ Cont. on Page 13 would not be appropriate to apologize. There is little difference in blasting off suicide bombs than in feeding babies to crocodiles. Anthropological details vary but the essentials remain unchanged. Those committing the human sacrifices in Afghanistan hold sufficient power that they caused the President of the United States, and our Commanding General in Afghanistan, to buckle and supplicate themselves with apologies for offending the sensibilities of superstition. Granted, it is unwise to gratuitously offend the beliefs of others, but when murder is being committed the apologies should cease. We are not responsible for atrocities they commit. I have repeatedly spoken up against the burning of the Koran, yet there comes a time to acknowledge that something is wrong for which we are mistaken to apologize.

He just shook his head and allowed as how that was “jes pretty doggone okay” by him. I also toldTex that what we have now is a beautiful new hospital . . . billed as “The Hospital of the Future.” I believe it. So did my new friend, Tex. We’ve been critical of how this hospital came to be . . . but that was more about represenations that were made that turned out to be less than accurate . . . and about faulty financial planning. But that’s behind us now. Except for paying the bills. Indications are that the bills will get paid. Leonel Sanchez ushered us into the huge, airy, and well designed hospital. He answered all of our questions, pointed us in the right direction, and let us alone to explore at will. Me and Tex and two mighty good lookin’ girls, Evelyn Madison and Becky Nutter, all got to see state-of-the art
Emergency Rooms, Trauma Rooms, Operating Theatres, Radiology Facilities, patient rooms, rapid speed elevators that whisk you to your floor in a matter of comfortable seconds. We saw lots of smiling faces among hundreds of volunteers as well as hospital staff, both physicians and technicians alike. Make no mistake about it, this is a world class facility. I know that because that’s what Tex kept saying. He also said, “Golly! Golly!” a whole lot. Area residents also turned out -. an estimated 8500 to 10,000 arrived and, generally, flowed smoothly along a well orchestrated tour. The hospital is a 740,000 square foot, 11 story, 288-bed facility with all the latest, innovative and state-of-the-art equipment; about 1,700 health care workers will staff the new hospital. Covering 800 square miles and serving about 507,000 persons, the all new Palomar Medical Center will officially open on August 19th. On that date approximately 135 patients will have been transferred in and the
hospital will begin receiving new patients as well.
Scott Kuhnly, Escondido Artist, Dead at age 73
Tex was properly impressed and allowed as how he didn’t know if Texas could afford to build as big and as beautiful a hospital as this. When we told him this hospital cost $1.057 billion to build, along with several other projects, ol’ Tex, he just said that would be no problem. “Money ain’t no object in Texas,” he said. “We just need someone with the brains to do it. That’s where we’re kinda weak.” Wisely, I said nothing. “Say!,” said Tex, “who’s that dude in the business suit and what looks kinda like a cowboy hat, of sorts. Is he from Texas?” “Him?” I said. “That’s Ted Kleiter, Chairman of the Palomar Health Board. No one knows where he’s from. He just rode into town one day on a white stallion, accomplished project after project and then rode out again, leaving some silver bullets behind. “But,” I said, “he keeps coming back. We think we’re gonna keep him. He grows on you. Stick around. I’ll introduce you.”
Well known Escondido based painter, Scott Kuhnly, passed away last Friday (July 27th). Scott Kuhnly was born in Long Island, New York, in 1939. He began his studies with artist Millard Sheets at the age of 10, knowing even at that young age he wanted to be an artist. From 1957 to 1964, Kuhnly majored in Art at California State University at Long Beach where he got his BFA and MFA. Kuhnly has supported his family through sales of his art for

over forty years by painting from his studio in Escondido. Kuhnly is quoted often as saying, “I trust everybody that buys art. People who buy art are more highly evolved and people who buy my art are like saints."
with a smile, he would ofen say, “I never had to have a real job,ʺ but got to do what he loves most (painting) daily at his studio. Kuhnly being an avid surfer in his youth and a vintage car enthusiast produced many seascapes featuring fishing boats, sail boats, and harbor scenes. Services are pending.

Kuhnly painted primarily in watercolor, but also in oils, approaching each medium differently. "In my watercolors, I play down the color and try to use shapes and composition, " he explained. "The basic elements of design become more important in the watercolors, and the design doesn't compete with the color. With the oils, I try to make color the most important aspect of the painting."

a great improvement over these other systems when it comes to discomfort and time. The system has eliminated the pre-treatment preparation of surrounding tissues (30 minutes) by using a specially designed tray made to prevent the gel from coming in contact with them, and it incorporates medications designed to prevent the sensitivity some experience from the other … so the post treatment application of topicals (20 minutes) is unnecessary as well. Finally, the LED light eliminates the possible overheating of the teeth themselves! Sinsational Smiles suggests that you light activate the gel for 20 minutes but we can vary that based on our patient’s response rate. We’ve found 20 minutes to be pretty accurate for most of our patients, but on a couple cases having hard to lighten teeth, we’ve gone an additional 10 minutes, and the results have been excellent. 30 minutes is a great improvement over an hour and a half!

We suspect there will be more of these new “laser” whitening systems coming out soon, but for now, the Sinsational Smile Treatments are keeping our patients happy and saving both of us a lot of time and money. Like Zoom, there is the possibility that Sinsational Smiles may raise their prices for the purchase of their lightening kits as their popularity and success grows (at least until more competitors come on the market), but for now, we’re actually able to offer the system at about half the cost of the Zoom or other Whitening Systems!

Page 10 - August 02, 2012 ‘Local News’ Cont. from Page 4 In December 2011, the City entered into a contract with the Natelson Dale Group, Inc. to complete the Economic Development Master Plan. In developing the plan, Federal Economic Development Administration (EDA) guidelines were followed to enable the plan to also qualify as a CEDS, thereby allowing the City to apply for EDA grants. Extensive community input was sought throughout the development of the plan, including interviews with over a dozen local stakeholders and a 23 member CEDS Committee consisting of public and private sector representatives. The Economic Development Master Plan is a detailed work program for economic development over the next 5-10 years that dovetails with the Council Action Plan and General Plan update. The plan includes strategies to foster a strong business climate, create jobs and attract future private investment. 50 Million Gallons of Water a Day? May be a Reality in Carlsbad . . .

Right now, a proposed final draft of a water purchase agreement between the Water Authority and Poseidon is being prepared. Such a contract would be for 30 years and would, once approved, enable the facility to be built and to supply up to 50 million gallons of drinking water a day, about 10% of the water now used in the county.
San Diego County Water Authority board members were advised last Thursday that negotiations are close to being complete. Then a series of workshops and planning meetings will ramp up. It’s not on a fast track yet . . . but is approaching the time where it will either make it, or break it.
Estimated cost to build the plant runs from $870 million to $970 million, according to Poseidon officials.
The plant, which will remove salt from ocean water to make it potable, was first proposed about 10 years ago. If approved, it would be built by Poseidon Resources Corp, next to the Encina Power Plant in Carlsbad. So, it appears the Water Authority is approaching that stage where the project will either be approved. Or not.

Rancho Bernardo • Mayor Jerry Sanders As of this week, the new San Diego Central Library is more than 62 percent complete. On schedule to open next summer, this library sets a new standard for publicprivate projects in our city, and creates a new landmark as well. For nearly 30 years, a group of dedicated San Diegans have worked to build a new Central Library to replace the aging existing building. By utilizing private donors, grants and redevelopment funds, they found a way to build an iconic structure. The library’s golden dome is beginning to take shape and is already attracting the city’s admiring gaze.
Below its dome, the new Central Library will boast more than double the square footage of our existing Downtown library, room for twice as many books, more than 400 computers compared to the current library’s 84, a 355-seat auditorium, a 333-seat multi-purpose room, and 500 parking spaces. The new Central Library will also provide a 400-student charter high school for the underserved downtown neighborhood. The high school will occupy two floors of the library, and the students will have many opportunities to take advantage of the knowledge at their fingertips. San Diego is a 21st century city, known as a hotbed of innovation and technology. Next summer, we’ll have a library to match.

San Marcos • Mayor Jim Desmond Sign Ordinance Updated Earlier this year, the San Marcos City Council revised an ordinance dealing with permitted signs within the city. Business owners and residents are encouraged to familiarize themselves with the changes as the ordinance affects the commercial and non-commercial use of signs on private property as well as the public right-of-way. With goals of maintaining the rights of the community and balancing both a high quality of life and visual appeal within San Marcos, the updated sign ordinance establishes a
reasonable set of rules under which community members can freely discuss ideas and issues. However, the cumulative impact of everyone expressing themselves without limits would lead to a chaotic collection of signs and advertisements, thus negatively impacting the region’s economic vitality, visual aesthetics and public safety. Some examples of signs that are not permitted in San Marcos include flashing, blinking or signs simulating motion; searchlights; digital displays, and feather banners just to name a few. For more information, visit www.san-marcos.net and review San Marcos Municipal Code Sections 20.120 and 20.122.
Oceanside • Mayor Jim Wood Pro Kids Oceanside Pro Kids / The First Tee of San Diego is excited to bring its nationally recognized youth development program to Oceanside – and we are delighted that they have chosen our community as their second facility in San Diego County! Construction is almost complete on the 4,400 square foot Ely Callaway Golf & Learning Center, to be opened in late August 2012. Development of the Honors Course presented by TaylorMade, on a 6.5 acre site adjacent to the Oceanside Municipal Golf Course, will be operational by January 2013. These are
exciting times and we welcome the focus that Pro Kids uses by taking the game of golf and using it as a hook to engage underserved youth by exposing them to the sport of golf, life skills, tutoring opportunities, exposure to educational workshops, vocational field trips, community service projects, college preparation programs and more. This same exact model was introduced in City Heights back in 1994 and has been a success story for more than 15,000 youth in that area.

While it’s fun to build these “specials,” well over 90% of the PCs that we build are basic home or business “workstations.”
Nome and Paul Van Middlesworth thecomputerfactoryltd.com The Computer Factory Why Us? Since 1995 we’ve designed and built more than five thousand PCs. Most of our computers are for local home or business users but our PCs have been shipped all over the world. We’ve built solar powered controllers for mountain top navigation stations in Portugal, scores of rack-mounted, shipboard PCs for the world’s largest ocean bottom mapping company and integrated controllers inside design workstations and robotic assembly equipment.
The difference between our “workstations” and retail PCs from Dell, HP etc is that “workstations” are built to commercial/industrial standards with higher quality components and more robust case/power supply systems. Dell, HP and others do sell “workstations” but these cost more and are marketed through their “business services” organizations, not through retailers. All Computer Factory PCs are built to commercial or “workstation” standards. “Workstations” are higher in quality and reliability and less costly to upgrade and maintain than their flimsier “retail PC” cousins.
We’ve built servers, gamers, designer workstations, flight simulators and day-trader systems. We once built a portable “gamer” system with a collapsible screen for an Emir who ran
“Retail PCs” also come with an annoying array of pop-ups, trial programs, ads and links. It’s called “junkware.” Our PCs have no “junkware,” just useful applications (not trials) like
Unreported Funds Call for Better Oversight

State agencies should ashamed and embarrassed.
Our current budget oversight methods have failed. The legislature offers only a cursory review of the numbers presented by state agencies. As investigations are ongoing,

Perhaps a starving banana spider or spitting cobra has sneaked into the box while no one was looking. You’ll find that dealing with one of these is a cakewalk compared to trying to get meaningful help from your “technical support” in Boowannabongo. When you buy a “workstation” from the The Computer Factory you’ll find it up and running when you come in to pick it up. You can sit down and take it for a spin, ask questions, make sure all your files have transferred, install your own applications or copy your own files to the new system, all before you take it home. If you choose, we’ll bring your new PC to your home or business
Taxpayer Dollars Should be Fully Accounted For During a recent probe of unauthorized vacation buyouts of State Parks employees which cost taxpayers $271,000, the California Attorney General's office discovered "hidden assets" of $54 million that had gone unreported by Parks Department staff. These unreported funds were hidden by the Parks Department at a time when over 70 state parks, including Palomar Mountain State Park and San Pasqual Battlefield Historic Park, both located in San Diego County, had been threatened with closure as a result of a $22 million budget deficit. The hoarding of these funds at a time of severe fiscal distress for the Parks Department and ongoing
and set it up along with your Internet connection and peripheral devices. With our “workstation” you’ll miss the joy of international travel (by phone). You won’t meet fascinating people with exotic accents and American names like “Peggy” and “Bob.” You won’t spend hours trying to convince someone you can’t understand that you actually have a problem. With a Computer Factory PC you simply drop it off and we fix it. When you buy a PC from The Computer Factory you are getting a product that was designed, built and serviced in San Marcos. You’re supporting local business and jobs and keeping your money circulating in our local economy. That’s something to think about these days.
massive state budget deficits is unconscionable. The nonreporting of millions of dollars by Parks Department staff also raises serious questions about current proposals to raise taxes statewide and whether other state departments and agencies may be hoarding additional funds. Audits of other agencies may be necessary to restore voter confidence in state government. California's State Parks are an irreplaceable public treasure that must be maintained and protected so they can be passed on for the enrichment and enjoyment of future generations. As such, I intend to support legislation that will return these funds to our State Parks and ensure they are used as originally intended to protect and enhance this vital resource.

The Man About Town has repeatedly, and politely, requested to be unsubscribed from the Obama campaign’s marketing list. They have not listened, nor complied with my request. I shan’t be inviting them to any of my world class parties. Nor shall I encourage anyone to vote for President Obama.

Proud to announce two outstanding police officers and one volunteer who been recognized by their respective departments: The Oceanside Police Department named Officer Matt Lyons as the Officer of the Quarter Award for the Second Quarter of 2012. Lyons was selected because of his diligence and proactive focus within the Crown Heights Neighborhood, where prior to his assignment to this beat, there was a spike in gang activity to include gang related homicides and a series of shootings. During this quarter, Officer Lyons took it upon himself to take extra steps both on and off duty to assure residents in this community of the department’s commitment to reduce crime and the fear of crime in their neighborhood. Officer Lyons, on a regular basis, spent quality time with community youth, serving as a neighborhood ambassador. Lyons is a retired U.S. Marine of 22 years and a 12 veteran of the Oceanside Police Department. Escondido Police Officer Russell Gay was honored at the 20th Annual Law Enforcement Recognition Awards Night Awards Banquet held in San Diego. Russ was nominated as the Escondido Police Department’s Police Officer
of the Year for his outstanding performance as a law enforcement professional. Escondido Police Department Volunteer Dee Russell was recognized by the San Diego County Crime Commission at their volunteer awards luncheon held at the Four Points Sheraton Hotel in San Diego. Dee has over 12 years of volunteer service with the Police Department spending most of her time in Patrol where she performs vacation house checks, checking on abandoned vehicles and freeing police officers by conducting traffic control at traffic collisions and/or critical incidents. Dee also works with EPD in a juvenile diversion program, motivating youth to avoid joining gangs.
ty damned tricky getting technical info. across in an entertaining way, but Frederick Gomez accomplished the daunting task and did it with a touch of brilliance. The article caught me by surprise and now I'm hooked to find out what other surprises you may have for us readers, waiting just around the bend. Only point of frustration for me is that I'd like to know more about that prococious 9-year-old kid who discovered Einstein in library books. Where is he from? Where was he born, and where did he attend school? I'm guessing with a surname like Gomez he's possibly of Mexican-American extraction. Don't think I can ever forgive Mr. Gomez for my flunking his Multiple Choice Quiz, but then again, I never had so much fun flunking anything before in my life. Keep us guessing, Lyle. Good job. Best, Anthony Travis, San Marcos.
Letters to the Editor Attaboy Einstein! Thank you for publishing such an educational article in this recent volume. I found it enjoyable to read and especially liked the quiz section. Albert Einstein is not someone I think about very often, but I sure will now. Denise Dotson South Orange County More on Einstein Gutsy call on the Einstein article, Lyle. You must be an ex-military man, I'm guessing Army or Marine. For the first time I had an enjoyable read about Albert Einstein. I tried reading about Einstein in various popular magazines such as Time and Newsweek but I got so bored out of my skull that I could never get past the first or second page. It's pret-
Editor’s Note: Frederick (pronounced in the German manner as Freidrich) Gomez is a proud Kumeyaay Indian, born in San Diego, visited Germany twice, including Ulm Germany, where Einstein was born. He is fluent in German; is a magician, great researcher, and good friend of The Paper, as well as frequent contributor. We are proud to carry his work. Consumer Alert Dear Editor: My wife and I have noticed in the past few years that products are being sold in smaller sizes but for the same price. Here are several examples: Maxwell instant coffee, 8 oz. jar, is selling at Walgreens for $4.99, plus tax. Approximately four months ago--in a larger size--you could purchase it for the same price, $4.99, plus tax. Great Value Chocolate Chip Cookies, 13.75 oz. is selling at Walmart for the same price as before, when it was in a larger package.
Even our local branch of the 99 cent store in playing the weight game, selling Lil Dutch Chocolate chip cookies in a 12 oz package for the same price as it was in a larger package. (Sorry, my wife and I don't remember all the sizes and prices.) Bottled products are shrinking, too, for the same bucks. Staters is selling bottles of tonic water, same size, but for 20 cents more. I'm sure there is a lot more of this going on. I understand that as a nation, essentially, we are no longer citizens but consumers, always fair game for businesses. But how morally wrong and how contemptible. I can picture corporate execs, gleefully saying, "They'll never notice." God help us, for others seem unwilling to do anything about it I wrote about this to editorial people at The Riverside Press-Enterprise and the San Bernardino Sun; no response. Whatever happened to investigative journalism? Not suggesting you start a crusade. Just making you aware--if you are not already, that this weight game is being played for the further gain of businesses and the continued screwing of consumers. Name withheld by request p.s. Thanks for publishing my question about the necessity of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. Atta’ Girl, Madame Butterfly! Thank you for supporting our Kids in the Garden Class with publicity and photos!
