February 24, 2004: I left San Marcos, California, for my 5th trip to China on business. This trip was to be different. This time, I was scheduled to speak at two separate conferences on western hospital management, one in Shanghai at a conference on hospital management at Ruijun Hospital and another in Wenzhou at a conference at the South Asia International

Wenzhou is not Beijing or Shanghai where westerners abound. There is not a lot to attract westerners there.

March 1st I flew to Wenzhou where the balance of this article takes place where I spoke at “The Peak Symposium on Modern Hospital Architecture and Development” in 2004.

Editor’s Note: Bruce Krider is a past member of the Board of Directors for Palomar Pomerado Health and was Past Chairman. He is also a former hospital administrator and presently serves as an international consultant to hospitals. He is also, as you shall see, a lover of animals, particularly dogs. In addition, he writes a mighty good story.

My partner, Edward Chen, met me at the Pudong International Airport in Shanghai. The weather was telling at that point. Gray skies, chilly though not “cold” and threatening rain most of the time.

My job at the conference was to provide Chinese healthcare professionals a glimpse of western hospital management. That is pretty hard to do in 20 minutes with breaks for translators but I gave some highlights and at the next conference in Wenzhou I would have

The hotel was one of the old and better known in Shanghai, the Jin Jiang Hotel, a 5 star hotel, once the host to international visitors and diplomats.

As we were walking away, I watched the vendor go back to the side of the street and produce another puppy from a burlap sack and thought, “Oh Jesus, he’s got the whole litter in there.” Well, I really was in no position to do anything with a litter of puppies, leaving the following day. The realization and the futility of it that this one little puppy was but the tip of the iceberg made me sick.

Well, that was “one hungry puppy.” She drank most of the milk, the cup being half as big as the puppy herself. Having accomplished the first feeding, we began to think about what would come next (out the other end), so I went down to the lobby to buy a newspaper in case the new pup had to “do anything.” We waited a bit for any sign of progress that way but no luck.

I handed the puppy to Shuru and said to the puppy, “Here Pup, go to your Mommy.” I asked her if she could find a home for the puppy. She said, “yes.”

Milk in hand, we went up to my hotel room to feed the puppy. I got down one of the coffee cups from the in-room coffee service set up and Shuru squirted about half the

Harley Davidson is closing many of its plants due to declining sales.

I said to Shuru, “I’m going to buy the puppy.” I was leaving Wenzhou in a day and did not know what I was going to do with a puppy but I did not like the way this was going. I just felt really concerned for the puppy. I thought the first thing which needed to be done is to eliminate an impending disasShuruter.

Then, all of a sudden, the vendor just threw the pup into the midst of a busy walkway. Startled pedestrians of all ages were nearly falling trying not to step on this tiny puppy. The puppy, startled, could not have been away from its mother for the first time since birth for more than an hour and was now trying to figure out what to do in this new, overwhelming and bewildering situation which it had never seen. First going this way, then that way, trying to avoid the shoppers as much as they were trying to avoid harming it. Our guess was that the puppy was about a

We took the puppy back to the hotel lobby and Shuru went out to get some milk. After all, God knows when the puppy had last eaten. So, I stayed in the lobby of the hotel with my new relative and through the window walls of the hotel watched Shuru run across the street to get a small carton of milk.

Does he definitely want to kill me, or would he be content just to wound me?

In the meantime, we played with the puppy who was playful but cautious and would run around exploring and sniffing. Then she would come over and lick your hand or try to lick us in the face, as puppies often do. Shuru would hold her and pet her. The puppy seemed to accept that new affection with little difficulty. We were getting REAL attached to this little one. Shuru’s friend, a policewoman


She turned to me and said, ”No, Bruce, its too much, He wants 300 RMB.” I said, “I don’t care.” I had a U.S. twenty dollar bill, a few hundred dollar bills and a 100 RMB bill. So I gave him the twenty, equal to about 164 RMB and he released the puppy and we went on our way.

The meeting will be held at 12 noon at the American Legion/VFW hall in Escondido. Plan to arrive around 11:30 am to allow for seating, socializing, and other admin activities.

I keep in touch almost daily via email. This unhappy event galvanized us both to do something, whatever we can to change this situaOurtion.

Unfortunately, the dye they use kills the puppies in a few days. It is so toxic that the puppies’ young systems cannot handle the toxicity. We imagine that their livers which try to cleanse the blood become overwhelmed and fail. Then the other systems shut down and the pups die a miserable death going into respiratory distress and then, ultimately, cardiac failure unless the end is hastened by medical Shurucompassion.and

Desmond is against bike lanes to nowhere, 4 cent per mile tax on every mile we drive, and many of the other half-baked plans hatched by Also,SANDAG.DaneWhite will speak about his campaign for Mayor. Other candidates who attend will have a few minutes to introduce themselves and their campaigns.

Shuru told me that there was another puppy from the same litter in the vet’s office going through the same thing. Whatever happened was happening to all those puppies. We were both crushed.

That day, Shuru had taken our puppy to her father’s factory where there was another 2month old puppy they were taking care of. Great, instant puppy friends. Not only that but there was a nice outdoor area where the dogs could play and be comfortable.

“What now?” I thought. We had been too lucky. Something was not right but what could it be? Was the milk bad? Did the other puppy get too rough with her?

Do I feel a little bit like Don Quixote? Yes, I do but not enough to dissuade me from trying to prevent large numbers of month-old puppies

I immediately called Shuru on her mobile phone. Shuru quickly answered. The background noise was clearly that of a vet office (barking dogs). I said, “Shuru, it’s Bruce, are you sure?” She said, “Yes.”

I did not hear from Shuru for a day. The following day however, I got an e-mail from Shuru. She said, “Our daughter” did not eat at all yesterday and she looks very sick.

I said a little prayer for a little dog. “God you can move mountains, so could you just help out this one little puppy?” I felt like there was a reason that we happened upon the street vendor.

die in this same way. What happens is that these vendors dye the new puppies different colors in an attempt to make them more cute or sellable.

day in Haiko about 8 pm, Shuru and I met online on MSN Messenger and chatted about the previous week. She told me something very interesting and sad. Her veterinarian said that 75% of the puppies sold by street vendors will

DAY: I was on another group excursion the next day. Our group went to a very pretty mountainous area to the north and spent the day. I had expected to see Shuru as an interpreter but she was not there; the hospital had sent a different interpreter.

was with us and as it got to be about 6 pm, I suggested that it was getting late and I should not keep them. I would liked to have played a little more and dote over the pup but I needed to be considerate of my new friends and their lives. After all, I had just presented them with a task they had not been counting on. Shuru said she would find a good place for the puppy and we thought we would talk the next ANOTHERday.

She said, “Alright, I will. Sorry, Bruce.”

By the way, I wasn’t dealing with a lay person. Shuru is not only an interpreter, she is a physician, and in fact a general internist doing a fellowship in neurology. She is highly compassionate and loves animals

I was in my hotel room the next day in Haiko when I got an SMS text message on my phone about 12 noon. It read, “I’m sorry, Bruce. She’s dying. I am with her now.”

With a kind of hollow feeling and a heavy heart, I had the thought that there is only one other thing possible we can do to help this little creature at this point. I said “Can we at least give her a shot and spare her more suffering?” (The November prior I had to put our pet in California to sleep and now I was doing it again.)

administrator and consultant for the past thirty plus years, one of my best skills is organizational development. If I can use that background to help orchestrate the development of a framework which will benefit everyone except the individual street vendors, I think we have a chance at making some real headway. I am also encouraged by the movement Jill Robinson has been able to achieve in her work with Chinese governmental units and the Chinese academic and science community. I believe the majority of people in China are of the same mindset and only need a fresh set of eyes or a slightly different mindset to improve the way various things are approached.

I had to go to Zhuhai the next day and did not have internet access so I did not communicate with Shuru, although I could have called her on my

Pure Water Oceanside was previously awarded a combined $7.7 million for the fiscal year 2019, 2020, and 2021 Title XVI WIIN grant opportunity, totaling $17.6 million with this year’s award. The City also received $3.115 million in State grant funding for the project from the Department of Water Resources (DWR). These funds result from Proposition 1, a bond measure approved by voters in 2014 to improve water infrastructure statewide. EPA selected Pure Water Oceanside and portions of Oceanside’s recycled systems for a Federal WIFIA loan. The interest rate on the loan was 1.20%.

Kidnapping – Vista

I continue to be impressed with 5th District Supervisor, Jim Desmond. He is constantly on the go and cledarly feels the puls of the community and responds to our needs. He is adamant on sexually violent sexual predators not being allowed back into San Diego County when on parole or probation. I don’t want one of those creeps in my neighborhood and I reckon you don’t either. He is equally adamant that SANDAG come up with some alternative to the 4 cent a mile tax plan. He, like many of us, does not trust SANDAG, it’s leadership and staff. Jim Desmond is a super supervisor and deserves to be reelected!

Donta Law is wanted on felony charges of vandalism and kidnapping. He is described as a 46-year-old man standing 5’6″ tall with a medium build, short black hair, mustache and a goatee.Anyone with information on Law or his whereabouts is urged to call the Sheriff’s Department at (858) 5655200. You can remain anonymous by calling Crime Stoppers at (888) 5808477. You could be eligible to receive a $1,000 reward for information that leads to a felony arrest.

Pure Water Oceanside purifies recycled water to create a new local source of high-quality drinking water that is clean, safe, drought-proof and environmentally sound. The project will provide more than 32% of the City of Oceanside’s water supply, or 3 to 5 million gallons per day, and is the first operating advanced water purification facility in San Diego County. Prior to Pure Water Oceanside, the City imported approximately 89% of its drinking water from the Sacramento Bay Delta and the Colorado River, hundreds of miles away. Pure Water Oceanside began operation and testing at the end of 2021, and final construction is expected to be complete at the end of 2022.

At 12:30pm, I managed to infiltrate the premises to see what was going on. At that time, Mr. Wei's wife was working on a white poodle puppy. She used a toothbrush to color the puppy's face before lowering him into the vat of dye and hot water. Because the water temperature was very high, the little puppy kept screaming. She moved the puppy around to get all its fur wet with dye, blow dried it, and then began smoothing the color out. After the coat was dry, she began the process again. By this point, the puppy had stopped Ifstruggling.Mr.Wei's

According to the pet-purveying street sellers, different colored dogs fetch different prices. A white poodle, for instance, would be priced at around 700RMB, a reddish coat will up that price to 1000RMB, and a “Teddy” sells for even higher - at 1500RMB. So in order to make sure all the dogs are “teddies,” they dye them.

The worst thing you can dofor yourself or dogkind - is pick up a puppy from some guy selling them off the street. Even here in America, it’s best to NOT buy from pet stores as they often get their dogs from Puppy Mills in the midwest; nor from backyard breeders. Better to see your local rescure organization or Humane Society.

Thatcompartment.sameyear was memorable because we were blessed with an indoor toilet. Dad was doing his best to bring our family into the 20th century. For us, the time-honored backyard privy was giving way to modern conveniences. We rejoiced, of course. If you’ve never had the call of nature during a cold winter night with a temperature of minus 10 degrees, you’re spoiled and don’t know the true meaning of commitment. To make this modern convenience possible, Dad had hired two grave diggers from the nearby South Lawn Cemetery to hack out a 10 foot-by-10-foot square by 8foot-deep hole for a septic tank. He built a wooden walled-structure around this great hole and filled the walls with cement, giving form to a giant square tank. For an eight-yearold it was a marvel to behold. My Dad could do anything --- even create a big cement-lined box in the ground; it would have made a great bomb shelter Looking back, I guess we were poor, but by our community standards we were “middle class” because Dad had good credit with which to barter for necessities around our town’s business square. You might think these little stories are conjured up out of fading memories, but I assure you this is what the little farming community of Seymour, Iowa and my family were like in the middle of the fourth decade of the 20th century. … an idyllic period nearly lost to history.

In March 2021, I used some of this credit for another trip. When I used some of these credits, an Expedia representative told me I now had until Oct. 31, 2022, to use the remaining credits.

I have to admit those suspenders were a step up from the blue bib overalls which were my alternative daily schoolwear. It would be my entering two more grades before my butt was ample enough to support a belt. The step up in my school wear came at the right time. I had my first “crush” in the second grade. The recipient of my affection was our teacher, Miss Harvey. She was the most beautiful woman I had ever seen alive and off the silver screen. She drove a new 1947 black Ford coupe, making me a Ford man for life. Miss Harvey left us later in the year to get married. I felt betrayed.

As part of the cost of the trip, I paid $999 per person for a "cancel for any reason" travel insurance policy from TripMate. Part of the reason was in case my sister-in-law's cancer recurred. Unfortunately, it did, and she died before the trip.

A: I'm so sorry about the loss of your sister-in-law. You should have received a quick refund on your prepaid, nonrefundable expenses after TripMate approved your claim. I don't know why you didn't, but I know you aren't alone. Many travelers had the same problem during the early days of the pandemic. It was a confusing time.

I read in a book somewher some advice you may want to consider:

How dare you determine that I am “lost” because I admire Joel Osteen’s sermons? Have you ever heard the expression, “Mind your own business?”

Instead of feel good sermons, he should be teaching people how to prepare for the times to come, how to love people and share the gospel of Jesus Christ.

It happens that I have degenerative low back arthritis and am unable to stand for long periods of time. But even if I did not have arthritis I would not stand for a full church service. Who are you to dictate what I or any other person attending a church service must stand? Even the ushers at several churches said members did not need to stand if they chose not to.


How dare you write that pastors should keep their sermons to 30 minutes.

Also the fact that you are unable to stand during worship for our Lord, the most high is absolutely unapprectiative, unless you have physical issues.

A Grateful Reader

pointed out that I am, and have been for many years, a heathen; a non-Christian. Did you not read that? It’s on the front page, third paragraph. The very next paragraph, if you will re-read, refers to my many years of being a Deist, and, more recently, admiring the Baha’i faith.

so blind you only see what you want to see?

I've noticed that Friedrich Gomez uses British (or U.K.) spelling in his cover stories. Like "organisation" instead of "organization." Also, his surname is Spanish, but his first name is very Germanic. From past Letters to the Editor it has been pointed out that he reads, writes, and speaks perfect, fluent German. A retired professor of German (Temple University) who is a close family friend told us that he met/spoke with Friedrich at "Cruisin' Grand" and that his German (and regional accent) was perfect and even more grammatically correct than the average German or Austrian citizen! Questions (1) How did Friedrich pick up British spelling? [He lived in Great Britains for several years].(2) Did he live in Germany or Austria? [Germany] (3) Is he of part British or Germanic ancestry? [No, he is a Kumeyaay Indian who has traveled a great deal] (4) He is said to be of Native American heritage and if so, what tribe or nation? [See above]. Finally, I've never, ever known any writer to be as modest as he is. From what his boss, the influential Lyle E. Davis (founder/publisher/chief editor of The Paper) has printed in The Paper "We had planned a special public celebration for Friedrich Gomez' milestone 200th Cover Story but he declined to have any special recognition. And we shall respect his wishes." As powerful as Mr. Lyle Davis is, he chose to honor Friedrich Gomez' modesty and shy-

Fair warning, this week’s topic may be a little dry but I think it is important to discuss. It is about the implementation of SB 9. Now you may ask what is that, and the simple answer is that it is a law passed at the state level that allows the owner of a single family dwelling unit (house on a lot) to either add another single family unit or an Additional Dwelling Unit (ADU) which simplified is a smaller house. Depending upon the zoning there are numerous combinations of single-family units and ADUs that could be developed to include a lot split. The idea is that we create more housing. But like most things it is never that simple, despite how well intentioned it might be. When you look at what the Planning Department normally considers like Location, Floor Area, Setbacks, Height, Parking, etc. SB 9 only addresses some of them.

At this time of the year, Vista Fire officials worry about the dry Santa Ana winds. High winds and low humidity can transform a small, easily controlled fire into a catastrophic event. As we know, there is always the potential for wildfire in our region. Becoming informed is the first step to living safer and smarter. The key is to design a plan for wildfire, prepare your home and surroundings, and practice fire-safe activities. Be ready long before fire threatens, be prepared, and plan your evacuation.

“Ageism” as presented in last week’s feature article by Friedrich Gomez is an excellent example of today’s obsession with the prejudice and bias that dominate our nation’s self image. Friedrich points out that the relationship between seniors and their medical practitioners can be tainted by generalized notions concerning the characteristics and effects of aging. That fact that cognitive function can decline with age is true, but that does not mean that all or even most people over seventy are mentally impaired and to be treated with condescension. This patronizing attitude many display when dealing with seniors is annoying and frustrating, especially to seniors who

Hayes, a notary public from Little Rock, checked the usual suspects —, Expedia and a few airline sites — but struck out. Either she paid $375, or she wasn’t going.

Biases and prejudices had their roots in self preservation. Based on incomplete or rudimentary knowledge they were mental short cuts that helped us avoid behavior or associations that might endanger us. In primitive cultures we learned trust the familiar and be wary of the unfamiliar. Even today we carry some of those survival instincts as biases or prejudices. While prejudice typically indicates a negative bias, a bias can be negative or positive, e.g., “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes.” In today’s world we have come to recognize the fact that these self-preservation shortcuts may have negative consequences for others. Being able to distinguish between biases that protect us from risk and those that needlessly disadvantage others is a work in progress in America and Western civilization.

The flip side to the “bigot” is the modern movement known as “Woke”. The “Woke” holds a simplistic if somewhat superficial view of human activity and like “bigots”; the “Woke” is also based on an irrational intolerance. “Woke” identifies the ordinary white, heterosexual human as the primary source of societal problems, recognizing the White, heterosexual male as the “vanguard”. Fortunately these lost White souls can achieve absolution through “virtue signaling.” By acknowledging culpability and accepting responsibility on behalf of the White race for most negative social outcomes throughout history, a White human can be freed from guilt and gain acceptance into the “Woke” community. It’s a temptation that many of the young and naïve find irresistible. Folding comfortably into academic favor, believing that, for the first time, they are exposing evil forces haunting mankind from the beginning of time, and feeling part of an important social movement can be highly Insatisfying.the“Woke”

formed into virulent religious intolerance, homophobia, racism and other forms of irrational prejudice. We call them “bigots” and these folks justify their own system of conduct and beliefs as natural and just, regarding other belief systems as unnatural and evil.

Queen Elizabeth’s dogs didn’t know (and didn’t care) that she was the Queen. She was just the lady who loved them and had a plan for them now that she’s gone.

Hayes thought about other ways to get from Little Rock to St. Louis. How about by train? She checked Amtrak’s site, which offered a one-way ticket for just $52. She could relax with plenty of legroom and onboard WiFi. But instead of an hour, it would take her about seven to get there.

Nearly all of us have vestigial biases that influence our attitudes toward certain group identities. Americans for the most part are able to set aside generalized identity biases and conduct relationships treating others as individuals rather than members of an identity. This enlightened view has made America a beacon of tolerance in a world of intolerance. We’re pretty good but we aren’t perfect. The biased and prejudicial behaviors once meant to protect us from harm, for some people have been trans-

I've been getting a planeload of cases that involve expiring ticket credits. The problem is the pandemic. It is lasting much longer than anyone thought, and airlines sometimes changed their credit terms in 2021, which led to some vouchers expiring sooner than expected.

Historic statues and monuments are destroyed as the “Woke” apply present day ethical and moral values to the activities of men and women who lived in a completely different world. The names of sports teams, stadiums, civic centers, schools, streets and, bridges are changed in the name of protecting identity group sensitivities. Political leaders even encourage physical confrontation and violence against those who do not support the “Woke” agenda. The great majority of Americans of all ages, races sexual orientations, body shapes, religions etc are neither “bigots nor “Woke” We’re the silent majority of Americans, that, along with everyone else get “shoe horned” into one or another identity group by the “bigots” and “Woke.” The “Woke” and their political allies lump each of us into some identity group assuming that the identity defines us in some politically meaningful way. They are wrong. We are not black, brown or white. We are not Republicans, Democrats Liberals, Conservatives, Independents, Seniors, Racists, Bigots, Woke, Baptist, Jews, Agnostics or any other identity. We are Americans and we like to think for ourselves.

You still have to work for a deal even if you take the train. This summer, I knew I wanted to take the Eurostar from Paris to London to avoid the madness at Heathrow Airport. But during the peak of the summer travel season, the Eurostar website offered tickets at an eye-popping $279 one way. I shopped around and found the same tickets on Rail Europe for $249.

For instance, a budget airline might seem as if it has the lowest rate. But once you factor in other fees and having to pay for extras such as a bottle of water on your flight or your checked bag or carry-on, you may end up paying the same (or more) as the regular fare from a legacy carrier. Also, the tickets may be more restrictive, so if you need a refund, you’ll be out of luck.
