by lyle e davis In this age of space exploration, trips to the moon, to Mars, studying the solar system, we sometimes forget that there was an earlier period of exploration. Indeed, these explorations wound up causing our nation to grow, to expand its borders, to harvest its riches, to become . . . America.

These were hardy men and women . . . some barely able to read or write . . . but very adept at adjusting to their local environment and the demands the areas made upon them.
I take this as the only oppertunity to write to you and beg to be excused for my bad spelling and writing. I have more knews than I am able to communicate whereas I will give you the most important.
Here are a series of letters by one of those pioneer explorers, Daniel Potts . . . writing from the Rocky Mountains. They are published, as

as our provition where exhausted and no game to be had, being advanced five hundred miles above the fronteers, we were glad to get a Dog to eat and I have seen some geather the skins of Dogs up through the Camp sing and roast them and eat hearty this so discouraged me that I was determined to turn tail up stream and bear my cours down in company with eight others and by the way lost from the others without gun amunition provision or even cloths to my back of account being four hundred miles from aney white people or even knowing where to find Indians; now my dear friend how must I have felt young Birds, frogs, and Snakes where exceptable food with me

This week, a compendium of wit, wisdom and neat stuff you can tell at parties. Enjoy! The Lecture An elderly man is stopped by the police around 2 a.m. and is asked where he is going at this time of night. The man replies, "I am on my way to a lecture about alcohol abuse and the effects it has on the human body, as well as smoking and staying out late." The officer then asks, "Really? Who is giving that lecture at this time of night?" The man replies, "That would be my wife." ••••• No one believes seniors . . . .
Dear and Respected Brother, After I left Philadelphia, I was taken with a severe spell of rheumatism which continued with me for about two months. I arrived in Illinois on the 1st of July in the same year, where I remained until March following, when I took my deparure for Missouri, from thence immediately entered on an expedition of Henry and Ashly, bound for the Rocky Mountain and Columbia River. In this enterprize I consider it unnecessary to give you all the particulars appertaining to my travell I left St. Louis on April 3d, 1822, under command of Andrew
Henry with a boat and one hundred men and arrived at Council Bluffs on May 1st; from thence we ascended the river to Cedar Fort, about five hundred miles. Here our provisions being exhausted, and no prospect of game near at hand, I concluded to make the best of my way back in company with eight others, and unfortunately was separated from them. By being too accessary in this misfortune, I was left in the Prarie without arms or any means of making fire, and half starved to death. Now taking into consideration my situation, about three hundred and fifty miles from my frontier Post, this would make the most cruel heart sympathise for me. The same day I met with three Indians, whom I hailed, and on my advancing they prepared for action by presenting their arms, though I approached them without hesitation, and gave them my hand. They conducted me to their village, where I was treated with the greatest humanity imaginable. There I remained four days, during which time they had many religious ceremonies too tedious to insert, after which I met with some traders who conducted me as far down as the ? Village - this being two hundred miles from the Post. I departed alone as before, with only about 1/4 lb. suet, and in six days reached the
Post where I met with Gen. Ashley, on a second expedition, with whom I entered for the second time, and arrived at the mouth of Yellow Stone about the middle of October. This is one of the most beautiful situations I ever saw; from this I immediately embarked for the mouth of Muscle Shell, in company with twenty one others and shortly after our arrival, eight men returned to the former place. Here the game being very scarce, the prospect was very discouraging, though after a short time the Buffaloes flocked in in great abundance; likewise the Mountain Goats; the like I have never seen since. Twenty six of the latter were slain in the compass of 100 yards square, in the space of two hours. During the winter the Buffaloes came into our camp, one of which I was induced to charge upon by our company without fire arms, at first with a tomahawk only. After approaching very close, the Bull prepared for action with the most dismal look and sprang at me. When within one leap of me, I let fly the tomahawk, which caused him to retreat. After returning to our cabin, I was induced to make the second

An elderly couple was celebrating their sixtieth anniversary. The couple had married as childhood sweethearts and had returned to their old neighborhood after they retired. Holding hands, they walked back to their old school. It was not locked, so they entered, and found the old desk they had shared, where Andy had carved I love you, Sally.
Andy said, “She’s lying. She hid it up in the attic.”
So, his father sends the dog and $1,000.
Sally said, “Don’t believe him, he’s getting senile.”
About two-thirds of the way through the semester, the money again runs out. The boy calls home.

On their way back home, a bag of money fell out of an armored car, practically landing at their feet. Sally quickly picked it up and, not sure what to do with it, they took it home. There, she counted the money - fifty thousand dollars! Andy said, “We’ve got to give it back.” Sally said, “Finders keepers.” She put the money back in the bag and hid it in their attic. The next day, two police officers were canvassing the neighborhood looking for the money, and knocked on their door. “Pardon me, did either of you find a bag that fell out of an armored car yesterday?”
The agents turned to Andy and began to question him. One said: “Tell us the story from the beginning.” Andy said, “Well, when Sally and I were walking home from school yesterday .... The first police officer turned to his partner and said, “We’re outta here!” "Ole Blue" A young cowboy from Texas goes off to college. Half way through the semester, having foolishly squandered all his money .... he calls home. "Dad," he says, "You won't believe what modern education is developing! They actually have a program here in Missoula that will teach our dog, Ole' Blue how to talk!"

"So how's Ole' Blue doing son?" his father asks. "Awesome, Dad, he's talking up a storm," he says, "but you just won't believe this -- they've had such good results they have started to teach the animals how to read!" "Read!?" says his father, "No kidding! How do we get Blue in that program?" "Just send $2,500, I'll get him in the class." The money promptly arrives. But our hero has a problem. At the end of the year, his father will find out the dog can neither talk, nor read. So he shoots the dog.
"That's amazing," his Dad says. "How do I get Ole' Blue in that program?"
When he arrives home at the end of the year, his father is all excited.

‘‘Rocky Mountain Letters’ Cont. from Page 2 attempt, armed with tomahawk, knife and spear, accompanied by five or six others armed. After traveling a short distance, we discovered the Beast, and in a concealed manner I approached him within fifty yards, when he discovered me, and made a rapid retreat, though, there being much falling timber, I soon overtook him - finding there was no escape he made battle. On the first onset, I put out one eye with the spear; the second failed in the other eye; on the third I pierced him to the heart, and immediately despatched him. The winter set in early, and the ice on the river froze to the immense thickness of four feet and the snow of an ordinary depth. The river did not discharge itself until the 4th of April; on the 5th we were visited by a party of Indians, and on the 6th we embarked in canoes for the river Judith. In about one day's travel we discovered where a party of Indians had wintered who were our enemies, but fortunately had not discovered us. On the 11th, I was severely wounded through both knees by an accidental discharge of a rifle; whereby I was obliged to be conducted to our establishment at the mouth of Yellow Stone; here I remained until September. We were favored by the arrival of Major Henry from the Ariccarees who had departed from this place with a small brigade for the relief of Gen. Ashley, who was defeated by that nation, with the loss of sixteen killed and fourteen wounded, out of forty men. After Major Henry joined them and the troops from Council Bluffs, under command of Col Levengworth, they gave them battle; the loss of our enemy was from sixty to seventy. The number of the wounded not known, as they evacuated their village in the night. On our part there was only two wounded, but on his return he was fired upon by night by a party of Mannans wherein two was killed and as many wounded. Only two of our guns were fired which dispatched an Indian and they retreated. Shortly after his arrival we embarked for the big Horn on the Yellow Stone in the Crow Indian country, here I made a small hunt for Beaver. From this place we crossed the first range of Rocky Mountain into a large and beautiful valley adorned with many flowers and interspersed with many useful herbs. At the upper end of this valley on the Horn is the most beautiful scene of nature I have ever seen. It is a large boiling spring at the foot of a small
burnt mountain about two rods in diameter and depth not ascertained, discharging sufficient water for an overshot mill, and spreading itself to a considerable width forming a great number of basons of various shapes and sizes, of incrustation of sediment, running in this, manner for the space of 200 feet, there falling over a precipice of about 30 feet perpendicular into the head of the horn or confluence of Wind River. From thence across the 2d range of mountains to Wind River Valley. In crossing this mountain I unfortunately froze my feet and was unable to travel from the loss of two toes. Here I am obliged to remark the humanity of the natives (the Indians) towards me, who conducted me to their village, into the lodge of their Chief, who regularly twice a day divested himself of all his clothing except his breech clout, and dressed my wounds, until I left them. Wind River is a beautiful transparent stream, with hard gravel bottom about 70 or 80 yards wide, rising in the main range of Rocky Mountains, running E.N.E, finally north through a picteresque small mountain bearing the name of the stream: after it discharges through this mountain it loses its name. The valleys near the head of this river and its tributary streams are tolerably timbered with cotton wood, willow, &c. The grass and herbage are good and plenty, of all the varieties common to this country. In this valley the snow rarely falls more than three to four inches deep and never remains more than three or four days, although it is surrounded by stupendous mountains. Those on S. W. and N. are covered with eternal snow. The mildness of the winter in this valley may readily be imputed to the immense number of Hot Springs which rise near the head of the river. I visited but one of those which rise to the south of the river in a level plain of prairie, and occupies about two acres; this is not so hot as many others but I suppose to be boiling as the outer verge was nearly scalding hot. There is also an Oil Spring in this valley, which discharges 60 or 70 gallons of pure oil per day. The oil has very much the appearance, taste and smell of British Oil. From this valley we proceeded by S. W. direction over a tolerable route to the heads of Sweet Water, a small stream which takes an eastern course and falls into the north fork of the Great Platt, 70 or 80 miles below. This stream rises and runs on the highest ground in all this country. The winters are extremely, and even the summers are disagreeably cold.
We past here about the middle of July last, the ice froze near half an inch in a kettle. Notwithstanding the intense cold this country is well covered with grass herbage and numberless Alpine plants. After crossing the above mentioned stream, we took a more westerly direction over high rolling Prairies to a small branch of a considerable river, known to us by the name of Seet Kadu, and to Spaniard, by Green River, and is supposed to discharge itself into the Bay of California. This river has a bold running current, 80 or 90 yards wide, & bears a S. E. direction. It falls from the Rocky Mountains in many small rivulets, on which were considerable beaver. This valley, like all others I have seen in this country, is surrounded by mountains, those to S. W. and N. are covered with eternal snow, near the tops. Columbia Mountain, lying N. is the highest I ever saw, and perhaps the highest in North America. It stands rather detached and majestic, beginning abruptly towards the E. and terminating toward N. W. Its tops are the repository of eternal winter. In clear weather its appearance is truly sublime and reflects the brilliancy of the diamond in its various colours. This mountain gives rise to many streams, the principal are the Yellow Stone and Wind River. The southern branches of the Missouri are Seets Kadu and Lewis river, and others of smaller note. After passing from this valley, in a S. W. direction we had very good travelling over an inconsiderable ridge, we fell on a considerable river, called Bear River, which rises to the S. in the Utaw Mountains, bears N. 80 or 90 miles, when it turns short to the S. W. and S. and after passing two mountains, discharges itself into the Great Salt Lake. On this river and its tributary streams, and adjacent country, we have taken beaver with great success. Since the autumn of 1824, you have no doubt heard, and will hear by the public prints, of the furs brought in by Gen. Ashley, which were the product of our toils. The first valley as you approach from the head of the river, is a small sweet lake, about 120 miles in circumference, with beautiful clear water, and when the wind blows has a splendid appearance. There is also to be found in this valley a considerable sour spring near the most northerly swing of the river. The valley is scantily supplied with timber, as is the case with most of the low grounds of this country. The second, or Willow Valley, is better supplied on this
point - this valley has been our chief place of rendezvous and wintering ground. Numerous streams fill in through this valley, which, like the others, is surrounded by stupendous mountains which are unrivalled for beauty and serenity of scenery. You here have a view of all the varieties, plenty of ripe fruit, an abundance of grass just springing up, and buds beginning to shoot, while the higher parts of the mountains are covered with snow, all within 12 or 15 miles of this valley. The river passes through a small range of mountains, and enters the valley that borders on the Great Salt Lake. The G. S. Lake lies in a circular form from N. E. to N. W. the larger circle being to S. it is about 400 miles in circumference, and has no discharge or outlet, it is generally shallow near the beach, and has several islands, which rise like pyramyds from its surface. The western part of the lake is so saturated with salt, as not to dissolve any more when thrown into it. The country on S. W. and N. W. is very barren, bearing but little more than wild sage, and short grass. The S. E. and E are fertile, especially near the outlet of the Utaw Lake and Weber's river. The former is about 30 yards wide at its mouth, the later from 50 to 60, and very deep. This river rises to the E. in the Utaw Mountains, and in its course passes through three mountains, to where it enters the lake. We expect to start in a short time to explore the country lying S. W. of the Great Lake, where we shall probably winter. This country has never yet been visited by any white person - from thence to what place I cannot say, but expect the next letter will be dated at the mouth of Columbia. My long absence has created a desire to hear from you, as well as the rest of my people, also my associates. I have been on the very eve of returning this summer, but owing to this unexplored country, which I have a great curiosity to see, I have concluded to remain one or two years. We celebrated the 4th of July, by firing three rounds of small arms, and partook of a most excellent dinner, after which a number of political toasts were drunk. D.T.P.

Federal authorities swept in on criminal immigrants last week in a concentrated effort. In addition to Escondido, San Marcos, Vista and Oceanside, arrests were made in San Diego, Encinitas, El Cajon, Chula Vista and La Mesa. The agency zeroed in on criminal illegal immigrants and illegal immigrants who had been deported before. Oceanside Bridge To Be Named for Slain Officer The Oceanside City Council completed a number of agenda items last week, including the naming of a bridge after slain Oceanside police officer, Dan Bessant, as well as approving a two year contract with firefighters, approved the building of a
Local News new skateboard park on Alex Road and agreed to defer developer impact fees. The Pacific Street Bridge over the San Luis Rey River will be renamed in honor of Officer Bessant. The vote was unanimous. Bessant was killed in a December 2006 gang shooting by a gang sniper. He was 25 at the time of his death. The two teenagers who were convicted of his murder both received life sentences in prison without possibility of parole. The skate park, also passing on a unanimous vote, is expected to cost $850,000 with $429,000 of that amount covered by a federal grant, $25,000 from the Tony Hawk Foundation, and the rest by developer fees. Not all votes were unanimous. It was a 3-2 vote on the firefighter’s contract, with Mayor Jim Wood, Councilmembers Jack Feller and Sanchez voting for it, Councilmembers Jerry Kern and Gary Fellen voting against it.

Not Guilty Plea Entered in Fatal Escondido Crash Brian Joseph Webb II, 34, of Murietta, pleaded not guilty at his arraignment last Wednesday, to charges of gross vehicular manslaughter. Authorities say he was going the wrong way on I-15 and caused a crash that killed a motorcyclist, Robin Vaughn, of Escondido. Prosecutors say Webb’s blood alcohol level was 0.301 percent in an earlier DUI conviction. He failed a field sobriety test at the scene, according to police. Webb was free on bail following his earlier DUI arrest. Because of two earlier DUI convictions, an angry judge ordered Webb jailed in lieu of $5 million bail. The Nordahl Bridge: When Will It Be Done? As Phase II of the work on the Nordahl Road Bridge begins, all seems well. The closure of the structure planned for July 20 through 23, worked out very well, painter away from us. I own three paintings by Scott. While they have increased greatly in value with his passing, they are not for sale. They just mean too much to me. Sadly, he doesn’t have a lot of inventory of paintings that his estate can sell. Scott would sell his paintings about as fast as he’d paint them. I told him several times I thought he priced his paintings too low but money was never Scott’s primary consideration. He simply loved to paint. He was mighty good at it. Had to chuckle when good friend, Nick Ponce, told me, “ Sorry to hear about Scott... I would tease him and say.. "Use thicker paint, I can still see the numbers." Scott would just have given that silly grin of his, flashed his mischievous twinkling eyes, and enjoyed the good natured razzing. Scott loved The Paper and never missed a chance to tell me so. Loved the jokes, loved
construction crews were able to start the rebuilding of the west side of the bridge and appear to be on target to finish the constructiion in early fall, if not before. CalTrans officials confirm their crews have been working non-stop, around the clock. As a result, they say constuction will be complete in about nine months, compared to the normal construction time for a comparable project of a year and a half. CalTrans officials report they are quite happy with the contractor. Traffic heading for the major shopping center and Costco had to suffer through long lines at the offramps on both east and westbound 78 . . . but once the weekend closure, after crews had completed the new ramps in both directions, a noticeable difference in traffic flow was readily apparent. The project replaces the outdated bridge with a larger, higher overpass to accommodate truck traffic and make the structure compatible with ‘Local News’ Cont. on Page 10 the cover stories, and enjoyed the editorials, even when he disagreed with us. Scott was somewhat Liberal, The Paper leans toward the Moderate/Conservative/Libe rtarian side. Somehow, we remained the best of friends even when we differed philosophically.

We took a northerly direction about fifty miles where we cross Snake river or the South fork of Columbia at the forks of Henrys & Lewis's forks at this place we was dayly harrased by the Black-feet from thence up Henrys or North fork which bears North of East thirty miles and crossed a large ruged Mountain which sepparates the two forks from thence East up the other fork to its source which heads on the top of the great chain of Rocky Mountains which sepparates the water of the Atlantic from that of the Pacific. At or near this place heads the Luchkadee or Callifon Stinking fork Yellow-stone South fork of Masuri and Henrys fork all those head at an angular point that of the Yellow-stone has a large fresh water lake near its head on the verry top of the Mountain which is about one Hundrid by fourty miles in diameter and as clear as crystal

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. These steps included but were not limited to meeting with the staff of North County Lifeline at the Americanization School on a regular basis, spending quality time with community youth, serving as a neighborhood ambassador, and encompassing the community policing philosophy to build partnerships and immediately address crime issues swiftly and fairly.

Daniel Potts Letter 4 [Addressed to Dr. Lukens] Sweet Water Lake, July 8th 1827 Shortly after our arrival last fall in winter quarters, we made preparations to explore the country lying south west of the Great Salt Lake. Having but little or no winter weather, six of us took our departure about the middle of February, and proceeded by forced marches into the country by way of the Utaw Lake - which lies about 80 miles south of the Sweet Water Lake, is thirty miles long and ten broad. It is plentifully supplied with fish, which form the principal subsistence of the Utaw tribe of Indians. We passed through a large swamp of bullrushes, when suddenly the lake presented itself to our view. On its banks were a number of buildings constructed of bullrushes, and resembling muskrat houses. These we soon discovered to be wigwams, in which the Indians remained during the stay of the ice. As there is not a tree within three miles, their principal fuel is bullrushes. This is a most beautiful country. It is intersected by a number of transparent streams. The grass is at this time from six to twelve

‘Social Butterfly’ Cont. on Page <None> inches in height, and in full bloom. The snow that falls, seldom remains more than a week. It assists the grass in its growth, and appears adapted to the climate. The Utaw lake lies on the west side of a large snowy mountain, which divides it from the Leichadu. From thence we proceeded due south about thirty miles to a small river heading in said mountain, and running from S. E. to S. W. To this I have given the name of Rabbit river, on account of the great number of large black tail rabbits or hares found in its vicinity. We descended this river about fifty miles to where it discharges into a salt lake, the size of which I was not able to ascertain, owing to the marshes which surround it, and which are impassable for man and beast. This lake is bounded on the south and west by low Cedar Mountains, which separate it from the plains of the Great Salt lake. On the south and east also, it is bounded by great plains. The Indians informed us that the country lying southwest, was impassable for the horses owing to the earth being full of holes.

Page 8 - August 09, 2012 ‘‘Rocky Mountain Letters’ Cont. from Page 7 As well as we could understand from their description, it is an ancient volcanic region. This river is inhabited by a numerous tribe of miserable Indians. Their clothing consists of a breechcloth of goat or deer skin, and a robe of rabbit skins, cut in strips, sewed together after the manner of rag carpets, with the bark of milk weed twisted into twine for the chain. These wretched creatures go out barefoot in the coldest days of winter. Their diet consists of roots, grass seeds, and grass, so you may judge they are not gross in their habit. They call themselves Pie-Utaws, and I suppose are derived from the same stock. From this place we took an east course, struck the river near its head, and ascended it to its source. From thence we went east across the snowy mountain above mentioned, to a small river which discharges into the Leichadu. Here the natives paid us a visit and stole one of our horses. Two nights afterwards they stole another, and shot their arrows into four horses two of which belonged to myself. We then started on our return, the Indians followed us,
and were in the act of approaching our horses in open daylight, whilst feeding, when the horses took fright and ran to the camp. It was this that first alarmed us. We sallied forth and fired on the Indians, but they made their escape across the river.

called “Beauty 4 Life” that enabled women in Uganda to earn a living and educate their children by selling their handmade paper-bead jewelry in the United States. Not only has Catherine’s business thrived, but she partnered with organizations in Africa to provide English language and business classes for African women, micro-financing for their businesses, health classes and services, and providing housing and educational support for their children. It’s all about making a difference in a life – whether it’s in your local community or on another continent, it all starts with caring about something greater than yourself. Catherine is only 16 years old – I can only imagine what great things are in her future!

Nome and Paul Van Middlesworth thecomputerfactoryltd.com The Computer Factory Why Big Businesses Don’t Provide Real Customer Service Part 1 Customer Care, Customer Relations, Customer Support, Customer Service, and even Bedside Manner, are words that relate to the human element in a business relationship. When you buy a product or service you’d like to believe the person representing the business is also interested in helping you to make the best decisions. Unfortunately, all too often these days, that’s not the case. Traditionally, Americans bought trusted American products and local services. Even in big cities we shopped for products and services in our suburbs or neighborhoods. Town or country, we shopped confidently where we
Today we shop in superstores where we don’t know the owners or employees. Indeed we may shop the mall all day and never see a familiar face. Many of the iconic “American” products we buy are no longer American. Ben and Jerry’s, Budweiser, Gerber, Brooks Brother’s, Ray-ban, Lens Crafters, Chrysler, Firestone, Purina, Alka-Seltzer and Vaseline are among hundreds of foreign owned “American” companies. Even our once local “Mom and Pop” convenience stores, are typically foreign franchises often owned and operated by first generation Asian and middle-eastern immigrants.
Don’t we care about honesty any more? Most of us realize that information on the WWW, TV, radio and in print is often agenda driven, not factual and that businesses, governments and politicians use these vehicles not to inform but to influence. We know that multi-national companies are mainly interested in snagging our dollars and that an anonymous salesperson may be much more interested in his commission than our needs. Having to rely on strangers for help in making decisions is stressful. We try to avoid that kind of
stress by dealing with people and businesses that we know and trust when we can. We treasure our relationship with trusted providers like our auto mechanic, car dealer, family doctor, plumber, hairdresser, dentist, baby sitter, cleaning lady, landscaper, computer sales and repair, and mortician. We enjoy contact with people who treat us openly and honestly, like friends rather than commodities.

While older generations can wax nostalgic about the way things used to be, younger generations never knew it any other way. “Globalization” has changed traditional America forever; “diversity,” like it or not, is here to stay. Diversity, globalization, and urbanization have combined to dilute America’s traditional Judeo-Christian based culture. Ethics and morality have become situational.

Getting to the Medal Stand Can Be Expensive During the Olympic Games, dozens of American athletes celebrate after capturing prized medals in swimming, gymnastics, judo and many other competitions. Unfortunately, the celebration ends when medal winning athletes return home and have a surprise waiting for them– the Internal Revenue Service. According to a report issued by the Americans for Tax Reform Foundation, medal winning athletes face prize taxes ranging from $8,986 for gold to $3,502 for bronze. While it is true that many athletes come home to lucrative endorsement deals and other economic opportunities, there are still many that go back to school or their
nine to five jobs. For every Michael Phelps and Lebron James there is a teenage gymnast, archer or diver that doesn’t employ an army of accountants to help them navigate the tax code. I believe that we should celebrate the accomplishments of our athletes who dedicate countless hours to their respective sports and represent their country on the world’s biggest stage. Fortunately, federal legislation changing this tax penalty has already been introduced by Senator Marco Rubio (RFLA) and Rep. Mary BonoMack (R-CA) and will likely be heard before Congress adjourns later this year. I encourage you to call your local Congressional representative and offer your support for our Olympians.

Obituary Scott Kuhnly
A Memorial Service for Scott Kuhnly will be held on Saturday, August 18th, from 5pm on, at the Escondido Arts Partnership, Escondido Municipal Art Gallery, at 262 E. Grand Avenue. Scott Kuhnly, well known and greatly admired painter from Escondido, CA., passed away at 11am on Friday, July 27th at Palomar Medical Center from congestive heart failure. Scott had undergone quadruple bypass surgery several years ago and also suffered from complications of diabetes. Scott and his wife, Patricia, met in 1967 in Huntington Beach, where Scott, while working as a painter, was also working one day a week in a local store. Patricia walked in and said, "I knew right away, this was the guy for me. Two years later, we were married at the Vista Court House." Scott and Patty moved to Lake Wohlford in 1969 and lived happily there until 2003, when they were burned out by the Paradise fire. "Scott just looked at the ashes of our home and said, 'don't worry. Everything is gonna be just fine. Better, even." This was typical of Scott Kuhnly. He always had a twinkle in his eyes, a warm, mischievous smile, and a sunny disposition. "If I got grumpy about something, he'd look at me with those magically twinkling eyes and have me laughing in no time." "We joked around with one another every day," says Patty. "We laughed every day." Scott and Patty were married for 43 years before his passing.
Many family and friends will gather at the Memorial Service to share their memories of Scott. Visitors and guests are asked to join in the celebration of Scott’s life with a potluck contribution. Two of Scott’s closest friends will be attending, Mike Gulewich, a fellow artist, and Robert (Bob) Garner, who was both a painter, business partner, and close friend for many years. "We made about 25 painting trips together to central California for a couple weeks at a time," said Gulewich. "We also went to Taos, New Mexico, to paint. His gallery was a breeding ground for artists . . . we'd not only discuss art and different techniques, but politics, philosophy, surfing . . . a variety of subjects. Stan Sowinski, who passed away several years ago, Scott and myself, we'd get together regularly to talk. I learned so much from those guys." Today, Mike Gulewich has his home studio in Vista. "I pretty much studied under Scott Kuhnly," he said. "Lots of plein air painting, which we both loved . . . as an artist, you always want to paint with people who are better than you. Stan and Scott were my friends so I grew as a painter, thanks to them." Bob Garner recalls moving out from Chicago and visiting Bates Nut Farm one day where he saw Kuhnly's work. Later, he had to see an insurance agent located in the arcade where Kuhnly had his studios. He and Kuhnly bumped into each other, stood in the arcade and watched the rain . . . began to talk, adjourned to the old Wedeking Bakery for coffee and talked some more. "Soon, Scott saw my work and it just seemed to click. We decided it would make sense to become partners, and soon shared studio space." They acquired the equipment necessary to do framing so they controlled their own framing. They were friends and partners for 35 years. Scott leaves behind his wife, Patty, a sister, Jacqueline Hayes, from Penn Valley, CA., three nephews, Jeff Maples of San Clemente, David Maples, Pleasant Valley CA., Adam Maples, Studio City, CA., and a niece, Heidi Grant, of Grass Valley, CA., Neices Marisa Saam, Tustin, Madeleine Saam, Tustin, Dettina Saam, Newport Beach, a nephew, Eric Saam, Los Angeles. and Patty’s sister, Marilyn Saam, Tustin, and mother-in-law, Ann Kay, of
Orange. One of Scott Kuhnly's favorite quotes: "I trust everybody that buys art. People who buy art are more highly evolved and people who buy my art are like Saints." Inurnment will be private.

Letters to the Editor Dear Evelyn: I spoke with you on the phone on Thursday about the article in the Paper about B-24’s. My husband, Robert L. Schaper, was a co-pilot and pilot of the B-24’s during WWII, as stated in your article of The Paper dated June 21, 2012. After completing his bombing missions, he stayed on as a lead pilot weather scout, radioing the weather conditions back to the pilots who were bombing Germany so they would know when and where they could fly. Robert was a member of the Distinguished Flying Cross Society also and is a past president of the San Diego Lindbergh Chapter. The town where he wa stationed in England was Shipdham, not Shiptam. Thanks for all your help. Sincerely, /s/Shirley Schaper Escondido, CA.

I was stopped at a red light at a busy intersection, just lost in thought about the Lord and how good he is, and I didn't notice that the light had changed.
Well, I have never met anyone from Hawaii , so I leaned out the window and gave him the good luck sign right back. My grandson burst out laughing.
It is a good thing someone else loves Jesus because if he hadn't honked, I'd never have noticed.
Why even he was enjoying this religious experience!
"That's my boy!" The kid went on to law school, and now serves in Washington D.C. as a Congressman. Grandma Still Drives Grandma is eighty-eight years old and still drives her own car. She writes:
What an exuberant cheerleader he was for Jesus! Everyone started honking! I just leaned out my window and started waving and smiling at all those loving people. I even honked my horn a few times to share in the love!
There must have been a man from Florida back there because I heard him yelling something about a sunny beach.
The other day I went up to our local Christian book store and saw a 'Honk if you love Jesus' bumper sticker .. I was feeling particularly sassy that day because I had just come from a thrilling choir performance, fol-
I saw another guy waving in a funny way with only his middle finger stuck up in the air. I asked my young teenage grandson in the back seat what that meant. He said it was probably a Hawaiian good luck sign or
"Dad," the boy says, "I have some grim news. Yesterday morning, just before we left to drive home, Ole' Blue was in the living room, kicked back in the recliner, reading the Wall Street Journal, like he usually does."

Boy, am I glad I did; what an uplifting experience that followed.
While I was sitting there, the guy behind started honking like crazy, and then he leaned out of his window and screamed, 'For the love of God!'

A couple of the people were so caught up in the joy of the moment that they got out of their cars and started walking towards me. I bet they wanted to pray or ask what church I attended, but this is when I noticed the light had changed. So, grinning, I waved at all my brothers and sisters, and drove on through the intersection. I noticed that I was the only car that got through the intersection before the light changed again and felt kind of sad that I had to leave them after all the love we had shared. So I slowed the car down, leaned out the window and gave them all the Hawaiian good luck sign one last time as I drove away. Praise the Lord for such wonderful folks! Will write again soon,
See You Next Week With More Chuckles!
