by lyle e davis You probably never heard of Bob Paul. He was a lawman during the frontier days but he didn’t wear a mask and ride around with a loyal Indian companion; he didn’t have dime novels written about him; so far as we know, no movie has been made about him. Yet he was an outstanding lawman, known throughout California and the emerging Arizona and New Mexico territory as a top drawer lawman, very adept at tracking down and catching his man, or men, as the case might be. He was a colleague of a more well known frontier lawman; a fella by the name of Wyatt Earp. Bob Paul was there in Tombstone before, during, and after the shoot-out at the OK Corral. He just wasn’t a participant. Although he rates as one The Paper - 760.747.7119

of the great peace officers of the Old West, Paul is remembered today principally for his friendship with Wyatt Earp and the stirring events both before and after the October 26, 1881, gunfight near the O.K. Corral in Tombstone, Arizona Territory.
He was responsible for disbanding the notorious Tom Bell gang in the California goldfields in 1856, and he is remembered for his desperate gun duel with the Sheehan band of train robbers in Chihuahua, Mexico, in 1888.
He was a big man. 6’ 6”, 240 lbs. He was a crack shot, a good horseman, and an outstanding tracker.
He battled lynch mobs and tracked down horse thieves, cattle rustlers, murderers and stage robbers.
There are a lot of wonderful stroies about the old west and the lawmen that enforced the law and this is but one of them.
He was in several memorable gun battles of the Southwest, in which he emerged living. Five dangerous outlawas weren’t so lucky. They wound up six feet under.
Robert H. Paul had been a veteran lawman in Gold Rush California while the Earp brothers were still wearing knee pants. For nearly 50 years he enforced the law on two of the wildest frontiers of the Old West.
His shootout with the notorious Cowboys while riding shotgun on the Tombstone stage sparked Arizona Territory's infamous Earp-Clanton feud and its resulting showdown in that now famous vacant lot adjacent to the O.K. Corral.
He had bloody shootouts with the the Rancheria killers of the California Gold Rush area as well as the Red Jack gang in Arizona Territory almost 20 years later. We propose to take a little closer look at just one of his famous pursuits of “the bad guys,” the aforementioned pursuit of the Sheehan gang, the train robbers who fled to Mexico’s interior, thinking they’d be safe from the long arm of the law. They hadn’t reckoned with Bob Paul. Some outlaws had pulled off two daring train robberies east of Tucson. Quickly arrested were Larry Sheehan and Dick Johnson, a pair of loudmouthed, deadly cattle rustlers, but they were soon released for lack of evidence. As the two left the Pima County Courthouse, Sheehan remarked sarcastically

Page 2 - December 13, 2012 ‘Chihuahua Shoot-Out’ Cont. from Page 1 to Tucson lawmen, "We have never robbed any trains yet, but as long as we have been accused, we are going to get busy and rob one for luck." He wasn't fooling. With saddle partner Dick Hart they rode 225 miles south from El Paso, Texas, to Chihuahua, Mexico, looking for a ranch to buy. Then they started back to the United States to raise a stake. On the way north through the Sierra Madre Mountain Range that encloses the great central Mexican Plateau, Sheehan accidentally shot himself in the leg, so Johnson and Hart continued on without him. On the night of February 22, 1888, Johnson and Hart boarded a Southern Pacific train at Stein's Pass, New Mexico Territory, near the Arizona Territory line. The bandits ordered the engineer to stop at a place they thought was in Arizona, just beyond the New Mexico line. A year earlier New Mexico's territorial government had enacted a law making train robbery a capital offense. For that reason Johnson and Hart wanted to stop the train on the
Arizona side. But in the darkness they had stopped the train early and were actually still in New Mexico. The robbers took $2,000 plus a shipment of jewelry and fled back into Mexico. Next came a bit of an Alfonse and Gaston routine in which Arizona Territory US Marshal William K. Meade wound up putting himself and his posse into an embarrassing position. Seems Marshal Meade, a bitter personal and political enemy of Bob Paul, hastily put together a posse and went charging off after the bad guys. Just one problem. He had not gotten the necessary permission to cross the border into Mexico, was stopped and arrested by Janos, Mexico police, and thrown in the local jail. Mexican jails, even then, were not known for hospitable conditons. Being in a Mexican jail and communications being what they were in those days, no one back home knew the Marshal and his posse were in jail. They just assumed they were out doing what posses do . . . chasing bad guys up and down mountains and around the plains.

Finally, on March 9, an American arrived in Lordsburg, New Mexico, from Janos and reported the posse's arrest. The story hit the wires immediately, making national news and creating a diplomatic incident. While all this was going on, Paul had been conducting his own investigation for the Southern Pacific Railroad into the Stein's Pass train robbery. He later explained that the day after the holdup, "General Superintendent J.A. Fillmore telegraphed from San Francisco to [Scott] Noble to send me after the train robbers." Paul immediately boarded a train for Stein's, arriving late the same day, after Meade's posse had left for Mexico. Then, after dutifully obtaining permission to enter Mexico, Paul spent a week south of the border trying to intercept the robbers. He returned to the United States on March 6 and went to Deming, New Mexico Territory, a railroad town, perhaps hoping to pick up leads on the fugitives. There Paul learned that the Southern Pacific had appointed him detective for Arizona and New Mexico territories.

He boarded the next train for El Paso, where he met with J.E. Lindberg, superintendent of the Galveston, Harrisburg & San Antonio Railroad. Crossing the border to El Paso del Norte (presentday Ciudad Juárez), Paul and Lindberg met with the American consul and asked him to make every effort to have Meade and his posse released. Hearing that Chihuahua Governor Lauro Carrillo happened to be in town, Paul called on him. "I went to the governor," he explained, "and he was very nice and very courteous. He told me I might have all the horses and men needed to pursue the robbers, and I went back to my hotel to fix my plans." Carrillo instructed Paul to meet with Acting Governor Juan Zabrian in the capital city, so the lawman boarded the Mexican Central Railway for Chihuahua, 230 miles to the south. Arriving on the morning of March 12, he immediately

‘Chihuahua Shoot-Out’ Cont. from Page 2 sought an audience with Zabrian. Paul recalled that Zabrian "was quite sharp and short with me" and had declared: "You Americans come down here and want everything. How do I know that you are what you say you are?" The veteran lawman was stunned when the Mexican bureaucrat refused to help. Zabrian complained that American detectives had "imposed upon" him during a recent train robbery investigation south of the border. Undaunted, Paul first consulted with Nicholas F. Pierce, detective for the American-controlled Mexican Central Railway, then sent a telegram to Governor Carrillo, asking him to overrule Zabrian. Carrillo replied the next day, ordering Zabrian to cooperate with the American detectives. Said Paul of the chastened official: "He sent for me and was very nice. He offered me all the men and horses I wanted." Zabrian assigned an orderly sergeant, a second sergeant and four privates to assist in the manhunt, putting them under Paul's direct supervision. They were provided with good horses and provisions, and on the morning of March 14 Paul, Pierce and the six soldiers rode out of Chihuahua. In his “Gunfight of the Sierra Madre,” authorJohn Boessenecker continues the story: “Paul's 30 years of manhunting experience was soon abundantly evident. He suspected the outlaws might turn up in the Sierra Madre west of Chihuahua, as that was the route they had taken on their ride north. Paul decided to follow their old trail north, anticipating they would return south by the same route. He astutely recognized that the Sheehan bunch were strangers to Mexico and would probably follow the trail they knew best. Paul and his posse rode 21 miles north to Rancho El Fortín, where they camped for the night. Here the soldiers made inquires and found that Sheehan, Hart and Johnson had indeed passed through a month earlier on their northward ride. This was a hopeful sign, and in the morning they pressed on, riding all day and 57 miles in a circuitous route to Carretas. The next day, March 16, the trail took them south 58 miles to Casa Colorada, high in the Sierra Madre and just west of present-day Cuauhtémoc. A mile and a half shy of Casa Colorada they passed a large L-
shaped adobe with a big stone corral. Unknown to Paul, Larry Sheehan, Dick Hart and Dick Johnson were inside, lodging for the night with a Mexican family. Just as Paul suspected, they had backtracked toward Chihuahua. The outlaws watched Paul's posse ride by, but they suspected nothing. At Casa Colorada the soldiers made their usual inquiries and were gratified to learn that three heavily armed gringos, matching the fugitives' descriptions, were still at the big adobe. The Americans were bearded and ragged from their long flight southward. Night was falling, and Paul decided not to wait until daylight but to try to capture them immediately. He recruited six volunteers from Casa Colorada and started for the big adobe. En route three of the locals got cold feet and disappeared, but Paul and Pierce, with the six soldiers and three remaining volunteers, quietly took up positions in the brush a short ride from the house. It was a typical thatched-roof Mexican adobe with four large rooms that housed an extended family of about two dozen men, women and children. As the family grew, its men had added on the windowless adobe rooms. There were no doorways between each room; rather, the front door of each opened onto an outdoor patio in the L-shaped angle formed by the structures. A ramada of brush and tree branches provided shade. One of the Mexican volunteers lived in the adobe, and Paul told him to scout the house. He soon returned and told Paul the robbers were eating dinner in the kitchen, at the right, or north, end of the adobe. He also said the fugitives had left their rifles in the bedroom at the opposite end. Paul asked if the volunteer would try to get their rifles, and the man agreed. He silently entered the room, found two Winchesters, ducked back out and brought them to Paul. Then the man returned to find the third rifle. After some searching, he found it resting on a shelf. But as he picked it up, Sheehan, Johnson and Hart, having finished their supper, suddenly stepped inside. The trio angrily demanded to know what he was doing with the rifle. The startled man made an excuse and quickly set down the weapon, but the outlaws suspected trouble and refused to let him leave. After a long delay Paul suspected the volunteer might have met with foul play. He and his posse mounted up and rode quickly to the adobe, position-
ing themselves across from the angled patio to guard its four doors. The outlaws slammed shut the door to their room and frantically searched for their Winchesters. They demanded the Mexican man turn over their rifles, but he denied any knowledge of them. Paul, Pierce and the troops remained on horseback, facing the patio. Then Paul and Pierce dismounted and yelled for the outlaws to surrender. There was no reply. The Mexican second sergeant grew impatient. Leaping from his horse, he ordered one of his men to follow him as he charged the door of the room. As he smashed it open with the butt of his rifle, the outlaws unleashed a volley of fire. The sergeant dropped dead with a bullet in his heart. "It was a foolish thing to do," Paul recalled. "There must have been 20 shots gone over our heads, and some of them through the soldier. That ended him." From the doorway the three bandits sent a blistering fire with their six-shooters, and the soldier who had followed the sergeant fled in a hail of lead. In the kitchen and adjacent room, which formed the right angle of the adobe, the 21 resident women and children began screaming hysterically. Some ran outside and then back into the center room, beside the kitc hen. Paul had the soldiers order the residents to flee the adobe. Several tried, but the outlaws fired at them from the doorway, and they rushed back inside. Paul yelled at his men to hold their fire so as not to endanger the innocents. The outlaws then dragged the sergeant's body inside, barred the door and settled in for a siege. Bob Paul recognized an impending disaster and decided to seek help. He sent one of the Mexican volunteers on horseback to the nearest town, Cusihuiriachi, 15 miles to the south. Cusihuiriachi, now virtually deserted, was then a prosperous silver mining town of 3,000 and large enough to have an alcalde, a combination mayor and judge. Later that night the alcalde arrived with a half-dozen armed reinforcements. Paul now had a force large enough to surround the adobe and stone corral. After stationing men at 10-foot intervals, he and Pierce took up positions atop the structure to prevent the bandits from escaping through the roof. In the meantime the alcalde ordered several of his men to dig a hole through the back wall of the kitchen, the room far-
thest from that held by the bandits. The women and children within, half crazed from fright, scrambled through the hole to safety. The rescuers then entered and began carving another hole through to the adjacent room to free the remaining women and children. The outlaws, hearing the digging, ordered their Mexican hostage to help them carve a hole in the bedroom wall. From there they crawled into the first middle room and dug another hole through the opposite wall. Sheehan and Hart scrambled through it into the kitchen just in time to see the last of their hostages escaping though the hole in the back wall. They opened fire at close range at the fleeing women and children. Their muzzle flashes set one girl's dress on fire. "One discharge grazed across the back of that girl," Paul recalled, "and of all the screaming and yelling you ever heard, she did it." She ran toward her rescuers, who seized her and smothered the flames. "She was not much hurt," said Paul. The standoff continued, and the posse maintained its watch all night. Every 10 minutes Paul would call out, "Are you awake?" Each time he received the same answer down the line of sentries: "Despierto, señor" ("I am awake, sir"). At first light on March 17, Paul again demanded the outlaws surrender. They refused, shouting they would never be taken alive. Johnson was in the bedroom at far left, giving him command of the patio. Sheehan and Hart remained in the kitchen at the opposite end, one watching the patio while the other guarded the hole in the back wall. Paul decided to blast them out and instructed one of the Mexican volunteers to ride to Cusihuiriachi and get a supply of giant powder from the mines. By late morning the man had not returned, so Paul climbed onto the kitchen roof to explore other options. He found that beneath the adobe bricks was a patchwork of brush supported by wooden beams. Scraping away the adobe, he set a match to the brush patchwork. After several attempts he managed to get a fire started and jumped down from the roof. The flames quickly spread, smoke poured out the doors and the fire began to roar like a furnace. Sheehan and Hart struggled to douse the flames. Finally, almost overcome by the smoke and heat, they drew their pistols for a last stand. In a scene out of a

The stores tended to feature very fresh produce, organically grown, as well as foods that were common in Great Britain. Local with ties to the United Kingdom were able to buy biscuits (cookies), puddings, scones, many uniquely British food products. That, however, is not a sufficient market to keep a store afloat. The decision to close up shop will not be an easy one as Tesco has invested 1 billion pounds ($1.6 billion) and has not shown a profit since they opened in 2007. While Tesco claims Fresh & Easy stores were discount stores, local observers seemed to feel the prices were higher than the big-box grocery stores and the variety was not that much different. Accordingly, many consumers appear to have directed their grocery dollars to the more traditional local stores.

Guilty to Sex Charge with Student
pending sentencing on Feb 6.
A 34-year old teacher, Kelly McKenzy Watson, was kept on unpaid leave but following a closed session meeting this week it is likely she will be terminated after her plea of guilty to a felony charge of having sex with a teenage boy who was her former student.
A 7-11 convenience store at Mission and Midway in Escondido was hit by two armed men who took off with cash and lottery tickets.
At the time of her arrest, Watson was a special-education teacher at Oceanside High School. She also taught special-education at the Vista school. San Diego police launched an investigation of Watson in August after receiving information that she had engaged in inappropriate conduct with the 17-year-old boy. That investigation revealed that the two had dated several months before her arrest. The teen was a student in Watson’s class at New Haven Residential School in Vista. Watson was his teacher from September 2010 to August 2011. Watson remains free on bail once they do, chances are Dawn and her sales associates have brought a new customer in to Geico.

The fixed rate reverse mortgage is a recent addition to the loan product line-up. And using this product to purchase a home is a more recent application of that product. The fixed rate reverse mortgage is a loan product that makes sense if a borrower needs to pay off a large amount of money. Paying off a typical forward mortgage is advantageous to a senior (62 years or older) in many ways. If a senior is paying higher interest rates for any reason, the interest is fixed (currently at 4.99%). Within the past few years, the fixed rate mortgage has been allowed for purchasing a new home.

downsize by selling your current home and purchasing a smaller home. This used to be accomplished in multiple steps. You would sell your current home, then purchase the smaller home, THEN take a reverse mortgage on the new, smaller home. Now, however, you can accomplish this in one step. You can purchase the home and utilize the reverse mortgage as the primary loan on the property. Using our borrower of 62 years old and a $300,000 property, the following would hold true. The loan amount would be the same whether the loan is used as a purchase loan or not. You would receive $185,700 from the reverse mortgage. You would then have to come up with $114,300 in cash to cover the purchase price of the property. If you had sold your previous home and cleared $200,000, you’re now able to bring the $185,700 to the closing. Along with the net amount of $185,700, you are able to move into your new home without a monthly mortgage payment. You will still be required to pay for your property taxes and homeowner’s insurance. However, now you are living in a smaller home with no month-

‘Chihuahua Shoot-Out’ Cont. from Page 3 Hollywood film they burst out the door, six-shooters belching lead. "They came out calling us sons of bitches and shooting, a gun in each hand," recalled Paul. "We let them have it in return." Paul and the men flanking the patio opened up with a terrific volley of rifle and pistol fire. Dick Hart reeled, sieved by bullets that killed him instantly. Larry Sheehan, desperately wounded, staggered back into the room, collapsed upright on an adobe bench and died. Soon the inferno spread to the opposite bedroom. When Dick Johnson could stand the smoke and heat no longer, he too charged headlong at the posse, clutching a six-gun in each fist and firing as fast as he could thumb the hammers. He made it 10 feet before the guns of Paul and his posse knocked him face down. Johnson struggled once more to his knees, fired both pistols, then fell forward dead, riddled with bullets. Paul stepped forward and searched Johnson's body. In the outlaw's pockets he found $595 in cash, a pair of diamond earrings and 21 opals, all stolen in the train robbery. He then

turned to Hart's body and searched it. "[I] found poor picking," Paul later admitted. "The soldiers had got there first." Paul thought it "just as well to say nothing about it, as the loot obtained by the troops would encourage them to give willing and efficient aid [in future]." When the fire died down, Paul had Sheehan's body brought outside. The flames had severely burned the gang leader's body, singeing off his hair and beard and disfiguring his face. Paul and railroad detective Pierce accompanied the alcalde to Cusihuiriachi, from which Paul sent a wire to the Southern Pacific superintendent: "Our posse found the Stein's Pass robbers, Sheehan, Hart and Johnson, about 120 miles west of Chihuahua on the night of the 16th. We called on them to surrender, and they took refuge in an adobe house, where they were attacked by us. They killed one man; [we] burnt them out after 18 hours fight. All three men were killed fighting. The bodies were brought here, and we recovered about $600 and jewelry. Cannot say when I can leave here. The inquest will be held today. Will advise you later. R.H. Paul." Mexican authorities buried the dead sergeant in Cusihuiriachi

with military honors. Paul had a local photographer take postmortem images of the three outlaws before having them unceremoniously buried in the local cemetery. Armed with these photographs as proof of his successful manhunt, Paul made the long trip back to the United States, arriving home in Tucson on March 23. By that time newspapers nationwide had published accounts of his manhunt. The San Francisco Examiner then issued a lengthy report based on information from Deputy U.S. Marshal H.J. Burns, a friend of Paul's from that city who had gone to Arizona Territory to participate in the manhunt. The Examiner's account, picked up by wire services and reprinted nationwide, bore the graphic headline ROBBERS ROASTED OUT: HOW SHERIFF PAUL COOKED THE THREE OUTLAWS OF STEIN'S PASS. It pilloried Meade and praised Paul: "While the U.S. marshal of Arizona and his deputies were getting themselves locked up in a Sonora jail for crossing the frontier without permission, [former] Sheriff Paul took the precaution of applying to the governor of Chihuahua for extradition papers and permission to hunt the robbers on Mexican territory." The Examiner gave Paul full credit for tracking

down the bandits and organizing the siege. Paul's success was the culmination of three decades of law enforcement experience. He used every skill he had acquired in his long career: his ability to speak Spanish and his good relations with the Mexican government, coupled with his ability to track like an Indian, outthink his quarry, organize his men, and outshoot and defeat a desperate foe. Paul's trek into Chihuahua cemented his reputation as one of the greatest manhunters on the Western frontier. For William K. Meade, his illfated expedition was among the most humiliating events of his life. He had been bested by a bitter enemy. In the end Sheehan, Johnson and Hart believed they had no choice but to fight to the death. Had they surrendered and returned to New Mexico Territory, they would have faced the death penalty for train robbery. And once they had killed the Mexican sergeant, they surely would have faced a firing squad in Chihuahua. Still, the editor of Tucson's Arizona

He San Marcos Dental Center named the bacterium Bacillus Dr. Gregory Hurt, DDS botilinus (now known as Clostridium botulinum). Botox: It’s Not Just for Cosmetics Anymore!

In 1988 the drug company Allergan acquired the rights to distribute Scott’s botulinum toxin and shortly thereafter changed its name to “Botox.” Since then, Botox has proven to be useful in several areas including treatment for frequent urination, reduction or removal of brow wrinkles (1992), excessive sweating, frown lines, etc. With the new millennium, FDA approvals continued to roll in. In 2002 Botox Cosmetic (the frownline fixer) got it’s official government go-ahead for cosmetic treatments and its use has exploded since then. The opportunity to still “look young” as the baby boomers reach retirement age was and still is, overwhelming and, not surprisingly, the response to this “serum of youth” has become huge world-wide! Botox has now become a new method of treatment in dentistry. People with overactive saliva
glands producing copious amounts of saliva can be injected and brought under control. Individuals with jaw joint pain, typically called Temporal Mandibular Dysfunction (TMD) often times get relief through intramuscular injections. TMD can also be associated with migraine headaches, and either or both can be treated with Botox treatments with and sometimes without oral appliances. Another use is in patients who show too much of their upper gums because of too much tension pulling up on their upper lip. Two small injections of Botox can control this anomaly as well. As time progresses it appears that Botox will continue to be used in ways that help alleviate not only the “look of old age,” but contribute to remedy medical and dental problems we run into as individuals and as a society. It seems that, with the help of science, we truly can make a purse out of a sows ear!

Daily Citizen could not help but admire the outlaws' courage, and he provided their only epitaph: "However bad their calling or desperate their cause, they died like brave men, with their boots on—a manner that befitted their lives."
The fun-filled game show LET’S MAKE A DEAL is back for a new season of comedy, music, action and PRIZES. Stefanie Kuhns from San Marcos, CA will be a contestant on the show! She could take home the fabulous Big Deal of the Day, or maybe the dreaded Zonk! Viewers in our area can tune in and watch the show on December 18 at 2:00 p.m. on KFMB (Channel 8).
In 1890 President Benjamin Harrison appointed Bob Paul U.S. marshal of Arizona Territory. It was the pinnacle of his law enforcement career. Paul held the post for three years, but when Grover Cleveland was elected president, Meade tasted some revenge with his reappointment to the marshal's post. Paul spent the next few years mining, then in 1899 became undersheriff of Pima County, serving until January 1901. Robert Havlin Paul's life of high adventure began in Massachusetts on June 12, 1830, and at age 12 he went to sea on a whaler. He sailed the South Pacific and landed in California soon after gold was discovered, serving as a constable, deputy sheriff and sheriff of wild and woolly Calaveras County in the 1850s and '60s. Later he served Wells Fargo as a shotgun messenger and detective. Wells Fargo sent him to Arizona Territory in 1878, and he quickly became the most experienced lawman in the territory. His ability and popularity won him the office of sheriff of Pima County, a post he held from 1881 to 1886. During those years he became the best-known sheriff in the Southwest. The lawman had always been robust and healthy, but a few weeks after leaving that post, Paul suddenly took ill. On March 26, 1901, he died in his humble Tucson adobe in the company of his wife, children, grandchildren and friends. The cause of death was cancer. He was 70, and no pioneer had lived a life more adventurous. Today Bob Paul is largely forgotten, his memory as eroded as the crumbling walls of Tucson's ancient adobes and the playedout placers of old Calaveras. He left behind no memoir, no diary, no dime-novel biography. There is no monument to Paul in Arizona or California, and even his grave is long lost. Yet his story cannot be erased, for his daring deeds etched it indelibly into the history of the American West.

‘Commentary’ Cont. from Page 5 most likely it will (have been) Masson. Like it or not, the Council majority is of the conservative persuasion and Don Greene, though an excellent candidate, is pretty much aligned with the liberal persuasion. I simply do not think a conservative majority would likely appoint a liberal, even though there would still be a 3-2 majority of conservatives versus liberal. Would I be disappointed if the council appointed Don Greene? Absolutely not. I think he’s a good man. He and I disagree in a couple of areas but I also disagree with Mayor Sam, members Gallo and Morasco, on occasion. They are still good folk and do the best for the community, as they see it . . . and the community elected them. But, politics deals in reality and the reality is, conservatives prefer to be surrounded by those of like philosophy. It makes it easier to cut through red tape (or to manufacture red tape), it is easier to go forward on an agenda, and

Mocha is a 3-year-old spayed female dwarf mix, ID 66298. Mocha is a busy little girl who can be a bit bossy in her cage, but she is very sweet and full of personality. She is active, fun and loves to chew on her box and arrange all of her belongings just so. She loves to cuddle into your neck when you are holding her. She will do best with an adult family or one with older, gentle children older than 10 years. She needs a roomy cage or x-pen house so she has plenty of room to bounce around. Mocha is available for adoption from the Escondido Humane Society and is one of the featured bunnies at the San Marcos Petco, 141 S. Las Posas Road. Her $45 adoption fee includes microchip, spay and vet exam. For more information, call (760) 8882247 or log on to www.escondidohumanesociety.org.
the community itself is generally conservative. Masson and Greene are the only candidates I know much about. Many of the others, while I’m sure are good people, I just don’t know enough about to comment on their credentials. Whoever got the nod last night (Wednesday) [if they, in fact, did get the nod; there’s been some discussion of postponing the decision] we wish them well and look forward to working with them. A caution: do your homework, show up on time, vote your conscience, and return your phone calls (to everyone, not just the media). Marie Waldron seldom returned phone calls so we were often unable to report her thinking or position of an issue. We were generally supportive of Marie’s position on the council but we were critical of her failure to return calls. One hopes she’ll be a bit better at that in her Assembly office. Good luck to whomever the council appointed.
Carly is the Pet of the Week at your Rancho Coastal Humane Society in Encinitas. At 11 months old and 17 pounds, this spayed, female, Beagle has whole life to devote to her new family. Carly was transferred from another animal shelter through the RCHS / FOCAS program. Her fur coat is even softer than it looks in her picture. She has really pretty brown eyes. When you meet Carly, check out her whiskers. They sprout off her face every which way. She likes people and other dogs. Carly is very friendly. And she's already had some puppy training that her new family will want to reinforce. The $145 adoption fee for Carly includes up to date vaccines, veterinary exam, spay, and microchip. If you can't adopt her, consider sponsoring Carly until her new family arrives. Meet your new cat, dog, or rabbit right now at Rancho Coastal Humane Society, 389 Requeza Street in Encinitas. Adoption hours are 11 to 5 Wednesday through Monday. For more information call 760-753-6413.

Page 12 - December 13, 2012 Often we can work out solutions for PC problems that don’t put a dent in the pocketbook and when we make a customer happy we get to share in it.
Nome and Paul Van Middlesworth thecomputerfactoryltd.com The Computer Factory One Mans Grinch-
The PC industry is looking at Microsoft as “The Grinch who stole Christmas.” Retail sales are in the toilet because the public is shunning W8 and Microsoft is denying retailers access to Windows 7. Apple is dancing in the streets and here at The Computer Factory we’re happier than the proverbial “Witch in a broom factory.” It’s true, “One mans Grinch is another man’s Santa.” We love the Christmas Holiday season but for the right reasons, not the business reasons. Most of our customers seem to share in the Holiday spirit with a livelier step and a ready smile. For those burdened with worries and the expense of needing computer repairs we can often lighten the load a bit (especially if they’ve just talked with “Geek Squad”).
Most years the Christmas season is business as usual. Our repair and upgrade business is steady throughout the year. New PC sales for Christmas shoppers are offset by the fact that most businesses don’t buy new systems during the Christmas season. This year it’s entirely different and it’s all thanks to “Microgrinch.” As the Microgrinch “Win 7 freezeout” denies consumers access to Win 7 PCs in local retail stores, the word is spreading that The Computer Factory sells brand new high quality desktop and notebook PCs with Windows 7. In the past two weeks we have seen a rush of brand new customers who didn’t know we existed until some one told them about us. We’ve been here going on eighteen years now and we’ve never seen anything quite like it. Only the “Vista” product release back in 2007 even comes close. Two new customers that came in last week were delighted to find out that they could actually still buy a brand new PC with Windows XP.
manufacturers. These have been reintroduced into wholesale distribution as “refurbished” with limited warranties, even though they are really brand new. As long as these are available we can offer amazing bargains in these ASUS Win 7 notebooks. Through our distribution channels we will continue to have access to all Microsoft operating systems and will continue to build desktops and sell notebooks with, Win XP, Win 7 and W8. Bottom feeders looking for low-end (under $500) won’t find them here. Those will be available with W8 in retail stores. We sell only top quality ASUS notebooks and build only high quality desktop PCs with ASUS motherboards, Western Digital hard drives, and
While we don’t build notebook PCs we do carry the best: ASUS. The Windows 7 freeze-out forced retailers to return millions of Win 7 notebook PCs to distributors and
boxed (premium) CPUs from Intel and AMD. How long can Microsoft hold out against the rising tide of dissatisfaction? They fired W8 President Steven Sinofsky last week. It is obvious that W8 needs work before it can be a successful PC operating system. In many quarters W8 is regarded as a better smart phone and tablet operating system than either Apple’s or Google’s. The purpose of forcing W8 on PC users was to increase sales of W8 smart phones and tablets; ironically W8’s failure in the PC market may be having the opposite affect.

On Saturday, December 1st, I was delighted to present two resolutions honoring the First Lego League and the Southern California Robotics League, Inc. for their efforts engaging thousands of Southern California students ages 9 to 16 in competing in the First Lego League Championship.
The FIRST LEGO League’s goal is to get children excited about science and technology, and to teach them valuable employment and life skills. Their work highlights the important need for STEM education.
Supporting STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) initiatives and programs is critical to the future success of our economy. Over 100 qualified teams descended on LEGOLAND to compete using LEGO MINDSTORMS® robots. Time Warner Cable was a key sponsor of the event, as part of the company’s five year $100 million initiative, Connect a Million Minds, to increase STEM awareness
In the legislature I will continue to address the need for robust STEM education, so that our students are adequately prepared for the workforce.

J o e Goncalves, the owner of t h e Escondido location of the Spires Restaurant chain, says he’s trying to negotiate a long term lease that would allow him to rebuild the popular restaurant that was destroyed by fire October 1st.

SkyFall - A Review by lyle e davis
While I didn't care much for 'Lincoln,' I absolutely loved 'Skyfall,' the latest James Bond 007 flick.
Senator Mark Wyland Guest Speaker at The Escondido Republican Club State Senator Mark Wyland will be the guest speaker for The Escondido Republican Club’s (TERC) Monday, December 17th, lunchtime meeting. Senator Wyland will be discussing issues that effect us from an ‘insiders’ view’ of what’s happening in Sacramento. The meeting will be held at the Cocina del Charro restaurant located at 890 West Valley Parkway, Escondido, CA. Check-in begins at 11:30 AM with the buffet luncheon meeting beginning promptly at noon and concluding at 1:00 PM.
‘Man About Town’ Cont. from Page 4 hoping that, this time, he DOES follow doctor’s orders. (As an aside, Dave had planned on going to Tanzania in February, to both deliver more food packets but also to set up a computer laboratory for a village there; it is now questionable whether he will have healed up enough to make such an arduous journey). •••••
Laura Strickler Another pretty face that is smiling mightily is Laura Strickler, one of our columnists (see page 6 ) who specializes in Reverse Mortgages. Why is she so happy? half hour if that were to happen. Relax. It ain't no 1/2 hour film. It's a good two hours plus, and plenty of action to keep you focused on the story line (unlike 'Lincoln,' which, literally, put me to sleep during the first 20 minutes). Daniel Craig is one of the better James Bond actors; time will tell whether he surpasses Sean Connery's magical hold on the character. The others who followed Connery were okay . . . but, so far, Daniel Craig is rapidly stamping his imprint on the role . . . and doing quite well at it.
Daniel Craig as Bond, James Bond, aka 007 . . . Action a-plenty. The first five minutes has you sitting on the edge of your seat wondering what's gonna happen next. Who's gonna shoot who, which high speed chase should we watch (for there are several) . . . will James Bond survive? Surely he won't get killed right at the beginning of the film? Surely the bad guys won't get away scot-free? Why, the movie would only last about a
James Bond has a top secret mission of recovering stolen computer hard drives that list a vast number of secret agent cover names and locations . . . if he fails, well, the whole planet is probably doomed. You and I don't need to wait for any Mayan Calendar disaster . . . it would happen right away if Bond doesn't recover those computer codes. Dame Judith Dench plays a believable "M" . . . the MI6 maven who gives Bond his
Because her daughter Samantha, her hubby Dan Davidson, and 20 month old grandson, Scotty, is coming home to Escondido for a visit. Dan Davidson pastors the Rose City Church in Pasadena; Samantha, a recent graduate from Divinity School, serves as Assistant Pastor. I dunno about you, but Laura Strickler sure doesn’t look like a grandma to me! (I betcha that grandson gets spoiled rotten while he’s here!) ••••• Congrats to Debbie Farwell, new proprietor of the Lake House Cafe in Lake San Marcos. Formerly known as Lee-Ann’s Cafe, Debbie and her hubby, David S. Farwell, purchased the business and have done a complete remodeling job. Check out the brand new eatery and its menu at 1030 La Bonita Drive, Lake San Marcos. ••••• Neat marketing idea and community support at the same time by Escondido Toyota. Check out the details in their ad on page 8. marching orders. Lucky for you and me, Bond manages to not only catch the bad guy who had the hard drives, but also found out who "Mr. Big" was. If you want plenty of action in our movies . . . "Skyfall" will meet your needs. It's a great treatment of a film, super cinematography, great locations, great stunts . . a worthwhile 141 minutes of viewing. This is the 23rd James Bond Flick . . . the most successful franchise in movie history. This one has set all kinds of box office records, here and in the UK as well. It cost between $150-200 million to make; it has generated over $876 million in box office sales . . . and its run ain't over yet. It gets a strong thumbs up from me. The ending would suggest to me . . . there may be . . . there just might be . . . at least one more sequel. Ya think? To Subscribe to The Paper Call 760.747.7119
