Last week’s cover story took a look at Alaska and its culture and touched briefly on the Yukon. This week, we take a little longer and deeper look at the Yukon.
Wanna go exploring into a country that is challenging, dangerous, offering adventure, privacy, and sometimes rough living? And all from the comfort of your nice, warm, safe and secure home or office? Well jump right on in and let’s find out about . . the Yukon!
As we pointed out last week, the Yukon belongs to Canada, not us. It is not part of Alaska. Still, there is a connection.
It was a great human drama that caught the attention of the world, and transformed the demographics, culture, and environment of Alaska and the Yukon. Dawson City, Yukon, is the heart of the world-famous Klondike Gold Rush. On August 17, 1896, three Yukon “Sourdoughs”: George Carmack, Dawson Charlie, and Skookum Jim found gold on Rabbit Creek (now Bonanza Creek) a tributary of the Klondike River.
They had no idea they would set off one of the greatest gold rushes in history. Beginning in 1897, an army of hopeful goldseekers, unaware that most of the good Klondike claims were already staked, boarded ships in Seattle and other Pacific port cities and headed north toward the vision of riches to be had for the taking. Most stampeders felt disappointed when they reached Dawson. Local miners had claimed all the gold-bearing creeks up to a year earlier.
Without gold "for the taking," late arrivals milled about town. Many went home. Some found jobs in and around Dawson. People made good wages working another miner’s claim, or in saloons, hotels, and other support positions. Others looked for gold on nearby The Paper - 760.747.7119

creeks but rarely found any.
The irony of the gold rush was that after risking their lives and fortunes on the journey, most stampeders never struck it rich.
Before the gold rush, according to the National Park Service, the Tlingit people used the trail to trade fish, seal oil and
seaweed for caribou skins and plant material with the First Nations people in Canada. Parks Canada indicates that the Chilkoot Trail was one of five trade route passages, each of which was owned by one clan. Chilkoot Village’s Raven clan claimed ownership of the Chilkoot Trail. The twenty-six mile trail over

Chilkoot Pass was steep and hazardous. Most stampeders who gave up did so attempting to cross the mountains. In the winter, stampeders struggled in blizzards, snow, frigid temperatures, and avalanches. The trail shot up about 1,000 feet in the final half mile. Stampeders climbed the "golden staircase," 1,500 steps cut in the snow and ice, and used a guide rope for support.
All through the summer and on into the winter of 1897–98, stampeders poured into the newly created Alaskan tent and shack towns of Skagway and Dyea—the jumping off points for the 600-mile trek to the goldfields. Stampeders faced their greatest hardships on the Chilkoot Trail. There were murders and suicides, disease and malnutrition, and death from hypothermia, avalanche, and some said heartbreak. During the first year of the rush an estimated 20,000 to 30,000 goldseekers spent an average of three months packing their outfits up the trails and over the passes to the lakes. On one occasion Stampeders recovered the injured and dead from an avalanche near the summit that

An extraordinarily handsome man decided he had the responsibility to marry the perfect woman so they could produce beautiful children beyond compare.
With that as his mission, he began to search for the perfect woman.
Shortly thereafter he met a Redneck who had three stunning, gorgeous daughters that positively took his breath away. So he explained his mission to the Redneck and asked for permission to marry one of them. The Redneck simply replied, “They're lookin' to get married,

"It was a super-human effort to transport those thousands of pounds up that narrow, slippery, rocky trail of the Pass, through boulder-strewn canyons, across swampy bottomlands." ~ Martha Louise Black, Stampeder. Each individual trudged hundreds of miles back and forth along the trails, moving gear from cache to cache. Once the prospectors had hauled their full array of gear to the lakes, they built or bought boats to float the remaining 550 or so miles downriver to Dawson City and the Klondike mining district where an almost limitless supply of gold nuggets was said to be ready for the taking. Tent communities of about 10,000 each formed at Lakes Bennett and Lindemann during the winter of 1897-1898.
With the thaw in May 1898, about 7,000 boats of all types began the 500-mile Yukon River journey from the lakes to Dawson. This journey took about three weeks, but it was not an easy ride. Wild rapids tested stampeders. The worst were Miles Canyon, White Horse, Five Fingers and the Rink. Stampeders lost boats and outfits, and some drowned,
so you came to the right place. Look 'em over and pick the one you want.” The man dated the first daughter. The next day the Redneck asked for the man's opinion.
“Well," said the man, “she's just a weeeeee bit, not that you can hardly notice... pigeon-toed.”
The Redneck nodded and suggested the man date one of the other girls; so the man went out with the second daughter.
The next day, the Redneck again asked how things went. “Well," the man replied, “she's just a weeeee bit, not that you can hardly tell... cross-eyed.” The Redneck nodded and suggested he date the third girl to see if things might be better. So he did.
The next morning the man rushed in exclaiming, “She's perfect, just perfect. She's the one I want to marry!”
So they were wed right away. Months later the baby was born. When the man visited the nursery he was horrified: the baby was the ugliest, most pathetic human you can imagine. He rushed to his father-inlaw and asked how such a thing could happen considering the beauty of the parents.
but most arrived safely in Dawson by the summer of 1898.
Joe Ladue and Arthur Harper had been trading in the Yukon for years. They were quick to purchase, stake and establish the town site of Dawson (named for Canadian Geologist George Mercer Dawson) at the confluence of the Yukon and Klondike Rivers, about twenty kilometers from Discovery Claim.
News reached the outside world in July of 1897 when the steamships Excelsior and Portland reached San Francisco and Seattle, respectively, with the successful miners from the previous season carrying the infamous “Ton of Gold”. News spread like wildfire of a land where “nuggets could be picked off the creek floor” to a recession suffering world and caused an unprecedented stampede of an estimated 100,000 people to set out to the Klondike. Most left knowing little of the journey they would undertake. Most would need to travel over

3100 miles to get to Dawson City. In 1898 Dawson quickly grew as thirty thousand (some say fifty) pick-and-shovel miners, prospectors, storekeepers, saloon keepers, bankers, gambler, prostitutes and adventure seekers took over the town site.
Most arrived to discover the good ground had been staked in the previous two years. Many simply booked passage home but others stayed and made fortunes through other endeavors. Money was not an issue in Dawson, as gold was in abundance, and businesses that catered to the gold-strapped miners thrived. From 1896-1899 $29 million in gold was pulled from the ground around Dawson City.
Dawson became known as the “Paris of the North”: The largest city west of Winnipeg and north of Seattle. Overnight millionaires roamed the streets seeking ways to spend their riches. The best food, drink and clothing were all available for purchase, at a high cost. Dance and gambling halls, bars, brothels, restaurants and supply stores all made fortunes

“mining the miners”.
Dawson continued to thrive until gold was found on the beaches of Nome, Alaska, in 1899. Many of the same people who came seeking fortunes in the Klondike left Dawson in a new rush. Dawson served as Yukon's capital from the territory's founding in 1898 until 1952, when the seat was moved to Whitehorse.
Dawson today is colorful and involved community that still has the look and feel of a wildwest town, with the personalities to boot. Miners, Artists, Wanderers, and the First Nations still call this place home. The population of Dawson was 1,319 at the 2011 census.
Some of us have limited knowledge of the Yukon, thanks to authors like Jack London and Robert Service. Others of us know even less than the legends and tales that came out of that area. Jack London arrived in the Yukon an unknown and unpublished writer. The observations he made and the
stories he wrote as a result of those observations, both fictional and non-fictional, made him a wealthy man . . . one of the highest paid authors of this time.
Stories like “Call of the Wild,” and “White Fang,” made him well known; he also wrote short stories such as “To Build a Fire,” “Love of Life,” and “An Odyssey of the North.” Later, he would write of the South Pacific . . . as well as of San Francisco in “The Sea Wolf.” Born John Griffith Chaney on January 12, 1876, he died way too young, at age 40, on November 22, 1916. In that short span of time he made his mark . . . indeed, Jack London Square in Oakland, CA., where he lived for a time, is named after him. Robert Service is equally remarkable. He was, in fact, a banker . . . a banker who wrote mighty good stories and poems, even though he arrived in the Yukon well after the Yukon Gold Rush. London lived in the Dawson area from October 1897 to June 1898.
We’ll take a closer look at Robert Service later in this story. Wildlife

Escondido, CA—In a 2002 issue of Neurosurgical Focus, a peerreviewed article was published by a Dr. Michael D. Martin, MD et al. in which the third sentence states: “The disc itself is active tissue that contains significant mechanisms for self-repair.” That article was published by a neurosurgeon and written direct-ly for neurosurgeons.
“The Disc Itself Is Active Tissue...”
So what does that really mean to us? It tells us that the disc itself does have a God-given ability to heal and repair if provided the proper mechanisms for self-healing. There is a specific mechanism inherent in each of the spinal discs called the “pump mechanism of disc nutri-tion” (see Fig 1). When this mechanism is not working properly, the spinal discs will begin to die causing bulges, herniations, and eventually spinal stenosis.
The spinal disc is one of the very few tissues in the body that does not have a direct blood supply for circulation. The only way that the disc gets the circulation of water, oxygen and nutrients for self-repair is via this specific disc pump mechanism. What happens when you decrease cir-culation in any type of tissue, whether it be animal tissue, plant tissue or human tissue? Exactly, it begins to become weak and begins to degenerate.
Symptoms Are NOT The Problem

porcupines, wolverines, ruffed grouse and white-throated sparrows. From July through to September, Taiya River has a salmon run, attracting black and brown bears. In the evenings, hikers can see beavers building dams.
The Modern Trail Today, the 33-mile trail into the Yukon originates at the Taiya River bridge in Dyea and north over the Chilkoot Pass to Canada’s Southern Lakes, part of the Yukon River. The hike can take three to five days. The trail attracts thousands of hikers each year. As only 50 hikers are permitted on the trail per day, the National Park Service requires reservations and registration by phone (see Resources). Eight passes are set aside each day for hikers without a reservation. We spoke earlier of Robert W. Service, the “Bard of the Yukon.” His vivid descriptions of the Yukon and its people made it seem that he was a veteran of the Klondike gold rush, instead of the late-arriving bank clerk he actually was. Fascinating backgound. Born into a family of comfortable means he had a great education and started writing verses at a tender young age. Here, for example is a verse he wrote,
brown leaves are the plant’s problem? Of course not, the leaves turning brown is just a condition that is telling you that there is something wrong with the plant. The plant is unhealthy and needs water and nutrients. You could spray paint the leaves green but it just covers up the condition. The underlying problem still exists and will continue to produce brown leaves until you fix the actual problem. and tingling that most experience with bulging, herni-ated or degenerative discs are NOT the problem. The definition of a symptom: “something that indicates the existence of something else.” It is just like the dashboard of your car telling you that something is wrong (brake lights out, engine needs checked, overheating, etc.) Those lights that appear in your car dash are NOT the problem. You can remove the lights surgically or put a piece of duct tape over the lights but the problem will NOT be fixed...the problem is still present.
Let’s take a look at a plant for example...if the leaves on a plant begin to turn brown, would you say that the

He grew up in Glasgow, Scotland, and entered the banking trade . . . a profession he followed for years and years, and which ultimately led him to be assigned to The Yukon. He was a late arrival, coming well after the major Klondike rush . . . but he did live in a log cabin and entertained his colleagues with his verse as well as selling his stories and verses, all of which made him a very wealthy man. One of our favorites, and one that gives a vivid description of the life and tribulations of someone living in the Yukon is ... The Cremation of McGee By Robert W. Service

He will sit down with you and go over your condition with you in complete detail. You will know exactly what is causing all your pain (or other symptoms).
In your spine, when the pump mechanism of disc nutrition fails, the disc will begin to de-generate and become weak. This weakness in the disc is what produces the bulging, herniated, and degenerative discs.
The treatment that is provided at Dr. Heilman’s Spine and Neuropathy Care Center in Escondido is revolutionary and is specifically designed to artificially re-create the pump mecha-nism in the discs which allows the spinal discs to heal and re-pair. The best part of the treat-ment is that it uses no drugs, no injections, and no surgery. Plus it’s painless and many patients relax and fall asleep while un-dergoing the treatment. The amount of treatment needed to allow the discs to heal and repair varies from person to person and can only be determined after a detailed neurological and orthopedic evaluation. We do NOT accept everyone for treatment and will let you know if we can accept your case for treatment.

This past holiday season, an anonymous Escondido resident contacted the Escondido Police Department wanting their help in providing some holiday cheer. Police officers often come into contact with people less fortunate and in need of a little holiday cheer. Knowing this, an anonymous member of the Escondido Charitable Foundation asked for our help in providing it. The donor handed over $10,000.00 to Escondido Police Officer’s Care Foundation and asked that the officers themselves donate $100 to people they come into contact with during the course of their day that are in the most need.
The anonymous donor wanted to give the Escondido Police officers the ability to spread the good will to the residents that they serve every day of the year. Police Officers for several days were “on the look-out” for people that were less fortunate. Officers found various ways to distribute the money. They found residents walking down the streets, driving in cars, and waiting for buses. Some officers even remembered people from contacts

Many of the people contacted originally thought that they were in trouble for some reason but then the emotions turned to joy and disbelief after being handed the gift by the officer.
Several officers walked away after being hugged and all of the officers walked away feeling like they made Christmas a little better. One officer reported back to his sergeant, that participating in this event was one of the “coolest” things that he has done as an officer. Police Chief Craig Carter stated that police officers often contact people during the worst part of lives and thanks to this individual, we were able to turn a bad situation around for at least 100 families. Carter went on to say that the contacts were just as rewarding to police officers as the families receiving the money. He said the police officers were able to walk away from those contacts knowing that the holiday season for those families will be a little better.

Letters to the Editor North . . . to Alaska!
I enjoyed your piece on Alaska. I lived there for 3 years and my son was there for about 10. We both moved from 20 years in Maine so adapting was a bit easier for us as many of the traits you need in Alaska are the same as in Maine.
Most of what you said was pretty spot on and your overall assessment was correct. The part you missed was called winter. If you can live through a few of those and still want to stay, you deserve the bonus from the oil revenues! I've endured Iowa and Maine in the winter (as well as several other, easier states) and Alaska, by far, is the toughest place I've ever lived.
I appreciate the picture and story about the Fairview Inn. A glass of wine, eh? That must have given the locals a good guffaw.
Next time you get to Fairbanks I'd suggest you travel due east about 60 miles to the hot springs at China Springs. You can't miss it as the road stops there (yep, that's right, it goes 60 miles in one direction and nowhere else!). Then go south (follow the pipeline) to Valdez. When we came out of the pass from Fairbanks to Valdez the ice on the inside of the moon roof melted and it started raining inside the truck! What a riot. There's an interesting little museum in Valdez. But you're right, the best way to get to know the real Alaska is to live there for a while. The people have a unique way of thinking. But then again if you can deal with the winters, you, too, will have a unique way of thinking! Jim Phoenix North San Diego County, CA.

Dunno about you but I’m excited to hear about “Les Miserables” coming to the Center for the Arts, Escondido.
Tell you why I’m so excited.
One of Broadway’s longest running musicals, this eight time Tony Award-winner, this brand new production of this world-wide theatrical phenomenon comes to Escondido on Saturday, February 7th at 8pm and Sunday February 8th at 2pm.
Evelyn and I will be front row center, enjoying the breath taking music and following the dramatic story. Hope to see you and yours there as well.
It’s one of the most celebrated musicals in the world, based on the original 19th century Victor Hugo classic novel, later converted to a musical.
If this top-rated show succeeds in Escondido you’re going to see more and more promoters bring class act entertainment to the Center. We’ve been starved for great entertainment here in North County for years. This could be the beginning of a trend.

The Arctic trails have their secret tales That would make your blood run cold; The Northern Lights have seen queer sights, But the queerest they ever did see Was that night on the marge of Lake Lebarge I cremated Sam McGee. Now Sam McGee was from Tennessee, where the cotton blooms and blows. Why he left his home in the South to roam 'round the Pole, God only knows. He was always cold, but the land of gold seemed to hold him like a spell; Though he'd often say in his homely way that "he'd sooner live in hell." On a Christmas Day we were mushing our way over the Dawson trail. Talk of your cold! through the parka's fold it stabbed like a driven nail. If our eyes we'd close, then the lashes froze till sometimes we couldn't see; It wasn't much fun, but the only one to whimper was Sam McGee.
And that very night, as we lay packed tight in our robes beneath the snow, And the dogs were fed, and the
stars o'erhead were dancing heel and toe, He turned to me, and "Cap," says he, "I'll cash in this trip, I guess; And if I do, I'm asking that you won't refuse my last request." Well, he seemed so low that I couldn't say no; then he says with a sort of moan: "It's the cursèd cold, and it's got right hold till I'm chilled clean through to the bone. Yet 'tain't being dead—it's my awful dread of the icy grave that pains; So I want you to swear that, foul or fair, you'll cremate my last remains."
A pal's last need is a thing to heed, so I swore I would not fail; And we started on at the streak of dawn; but God! he looked ghastly pale. He crouched on the sleigh, and he raved all day of his home in Tennessee; And before nightfall a corpse was all that was left of Sam McGee. There wasn't a breath in that land of death, and I hurried, horror-driven, With a corpse half hid that I couldn't get rid, because of a

promise given; It was lashed to the sleigh, and it seemed to say: "You may tax your brawn and brains, But you promised true, and it's up to you to cremate those last remains."
Now a promise made is a debt unpaid, and the trail has its own stern code. In the days to come, though my lips were dumb, in my heart how I cursed that load. In the long, long night, by the lone firelight, while the huskies, round in a ring, Howled out their woes to the homeless snows— O God! how I loathed the thing. And every day that quiet clay seemed to heavy and heavier grow; And on I went, though the dogs were spent and the grub was getting low; The trail was bad, and I felt half mad, but I swore I would not give in; And I'd often sing to the hateful thing, and it hearkened with a grin.
Till I came to the marge of Lake Lebarge, and a derelict there lay; It was jammed in the ice, but I saw in a trice it was called the "Alice May."

The General Behind the Generals
One of the most important figures during the war-torn mid-20th century was Gen. George C. Marshall.
Marshall, born Dec. 31, 1880, was an American soldier and statesman famous for his leadership roles during World War II and Korean War. He was Chief of Staff of the U.S. Army, Secretary of State, and Secretary of Defense. In 1917, during the First World War, Marshall was posted to American Expeditionary Forces headquarters where he worked closely with his mentor, Gen.
John J. Pershing and was a key planner of American operations instrumental to the defeat of Germany. Brig. General Marshall was assigned to the War Plans Division in Washington D.C. and subsequently reassigned as Deputy Chief of Staff.
In 1939, President Roosevelt proposed a plan to provide aircraft to England. Everyone supported the idea except Marshall. The general belief was Marshall had just ended his career, but his opposing view impressed Roosevelt, who nominated him to be Army Chief of Staff. Marshall was promoted to General and sworn in on Sept. 1, 1939, the day German forces invaded Poland. Marshall organized the largest military expansion in U.S. history, inheriting an outmoded, poorly equipped army of 189,000 men. Though he had never actually led troops in combat, Marshall was a skilled organizer with a talent for inspiring other officers. Most of the prominent American generals who were key to victory in Europe such as Dwight Eisenhower, George Patton, Omar Bradley, and Mark Clark, were all selected by Marshall. Faced with the necessity of turning an army of former civilians into a potent force by 1942,

Tributes from both political friends and foes began to pour in following news of the death of Former Councilwoman Melba Bishop, who died last died Friday night after a long
battle with cancer. She was 72.
Mayor Jim Wood spoke highly of her, saying she was a very good friend and she was probably very much responsible for his success in politics both at the council level as well as that of Mayor. Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzalez said Bishop “was the epitome of strong, smart, political powerhouse.” County Supervisor Dave Roberts called her a mythical Oceanside figure.
First elected to the Oceanside City Copuncil in 1980, she served until 1984; she lost a comeback bid in 1986 but in
1988 she regained her council seat. She was part of a strong voting bloc on the council from 1990 to 1992.
In 1991 she survived a recall election but later lost in a close race to Terry Johnson who would then go on to become Mayor.
Her political strengths revolved around neighborhood support and from residents of mobile home parks and senior citizen groups who consistently backed her over the years. Due to her cancer she slowed down in these latter years.

Marshall directed efforts on quickly producing 8 million soldiers. At the time, most U.S. commanders at lower levels had little or no combat experience of any kind. As a result, Army forces deploying to Africa suffered serious defeats when encountering German Field Marshall Erwin Rommel’s armored combat units in Africa at Kasserine Pass and other major battles.
Marshall wrote the document that would become the central strategy for all Allied operations in Europe. It was assumed Marshall would become the Supreme Commander of Operation Overlord (D-day), but Roosevelt selected Eisenhower. Roosevelt didn't want to lose Marshall’s presence. He told Marshall, "I didn't feel I could sleep at ease if you were out of Washington." On Dec. 16, 1944, Marshall became the first American general to be promoted to five-star rank, the newly created General of the Army – the American equivalent rank to field marshal. William Leahy had been promoted to U.S. Navy Fleet Admiral the previous day.

And there sat Sam, looking cool and calm, in the heart of the furnace roar; And he wore a smile you could see a mile, and he said: "Please close that door. It's fine in here, but I greatly fear you'll let in the cold and storm— Since I left Plumtree, down in Tennessee, it's the first time I've been warm."
There are strange things done in the midnight sun By the men who moil for gold; The Arctic trails have their secret tales That would make your blood run cold; The Northern Lights have seen queer sights, But the queerest they ever did see Was that night on the marge of Lake Lebarge I cremated Sam McGee.
In early 1947, Truman appointed Marshall Secretary of State. He became the spokesman for the State Department's ambitious plans to rebuild Europe. Rebuilding various war-torn countries was designed primarily by the State Department. The plan’s success resulted in Marshall received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1953 for what became known as the “Marshall Plan.” Marshall strongly opposed recognizing the state of Israel. He said if Israel was recognized a war would break out. In 1948, war erupted -- one day after Israel’s declaration.
In 1950, the opening months of the Korean War revealed a poorly prepared military, so Truman named Marshall Secretary of Defense. He finally retired for good a year later. Marshall died at 78 on Oct. 16, 1959. Truman once declared, "I don't think … there has been a man who has been a greater administrator or with a knowledge of military affairs equal to General Marshall."

The city also supports a building for writers to stay and write; it is so important that the Canadian government subsidizes its operation so that writers might have the freedom to live and work in a carefree atmosphere for several months at a time. Jack London and Robert Service are both revered in The Yukon by tourists, residents, and modern day miners alike. It’s all part of their history.
Pastor Sam Brumit, Mission 316, San Marcos Truthtelling
I don’t always tell the truth. I wish I did. I like to think of myself as a truthful person and while I worked harder at making sure my words have integrity and are always true, it is not always easy. I suspect that anyone who is always truthful in all their words is near perfect. Lies come in all shapes and sizes. Some are bold and easy spotted. Others are small, white ones and nearly undetectable. But as C.S. Lewis said, “A little lie is like a little pregnancy—it doesn’t take long before everyone knows”. Lies come in various forms.
We can “stretch the truth” to where it’s not recognizable. Even though what we may say is technically true, we can say it in a way that implies something else. Martin Luther said “A lie is like a snowball. The longer it’s rolled on the ground the larger it becomes.” Gossip is telling truth that we should not. With it comes the intent of damaging someone else or their reputation.
It is no surprise that Jesus said “Let your yes be yes and your no be no.” All of us should try to speak truth. As the Apostle Paul said it, “Therefore, having put away falsehood, let each one of you speak the truth with his neighbor, for we are members one of another.” (Ephesians 4:25) A good way to put away falsehood is to become familiar with truth.

It all started with an invitation from our old friends Honey and Dave, who invited us to spend a couple of days with them at their home in Pahrump, Nevada, on our way to the CES in Las Vegas. Honey and Dave bought property in Pahrump and moved there from San Marcos about ten years ago. Pahrump is about forty five miles northwest of Las Vegas in a high desert valley. It has a population of around forty thousand mostly white folk and strings out along the west side of Nevada route 163 ( the road

A committed Navy veteran, he served three tours, starting in 1969, working in communications; then, the eternal academic, it was off to Cal State Long Beach where he took up engineering. Then he became part of the Continental Airlines team of specialists in Customs, International Travel, and matters dealing with the DEA (Drug Enforcement Administration). While working for these folks he had occasion to be assigned to teach Continental Airlines protocols to a number of airlines that had no such organization. This involved lots of travel, much of it to South America, where he would meet with airline representatives and teach their staffs the protocols they

Apparently no “customers” came in while we were there so the girls just lounged about talking, texting, reading, watching TV and paying no attention to us. They looked like a bunch of rather ordinary college age girls, some dressed normally and some in rather bizarre outfits.
Two of the girls took us on a tour and showed us some of the fantasy rooms (bondage etc.) They spoke quite candidly about the daily routines and customer negotiations. We learned that the “Ranch” sold packages of time and the facilities while the girls were responsible for negotiating their own fees for services. We also
needed to efficiently screen International travelers. Somewhere along the line he met and chatted with a number of chiropractors and remembers thinking, "I wish I had become a chiropractor."
Gene is one of those people who not only thinks about something but acts upon those thoughts. Bingo! Off to Chiropractic School, graduating in September of 1979.
He worked at several chiropractic clinics in San Diego, Carlsbad and Vista; for a time, he headed to New Mexico where he worked and studied while learning advanced chiropractic work, including osteopathic techniques. In 1988 a successful husband and wife team contacted him and discussed accupuncture and Oriental medicine. He was amazed at the results so pursued those disciplines, earning a Master Degree in both disciplines,
learned that the girls are screened and under contract. They arrive for extended work shifts of up to three weeks. They are given a thorough medical screening when they arrive and are not permitted to leave the “Ranch” until their shift is over. It was a bit unnerving listening to girls younger than our granddaughter talk so openly about sex. Business is business I guess.
