The Navajo Code Talkers gained fame in World War II against Japan, where they spoke their own language that was completely undecipherable to the Japanese intelligence experts.

The idea is generally credited to the son of Navajo missionaries, Philip Johnston, who discussed his plan with Lt. Col. James E. Jones, the Signal Corps. officer at Camp Elliot, north of San Diego. Johnston believed that the complex language of the Navajos would provide an unbreakable code when combined with substituted words. The code had to be both verbal and memorized as the top secret nature of its use could not afford to have any printed copies captured.

Two USMC recruiters were sent to the Navajo Indian Reservation, Sgts. Frank Shinn and Paul Anderson. They had no luck for two days, then they appealed to Chee Dodge, chairman of the tribal council. Dodge sent the word out by short-wave radio to trading posts, and soon the recruiters had a crowd of applicants. The first inducted class would contain 29 Navajo volunteers, most between 16 and 18 years of age.

The Navajos proved to be rugged individuals, skilled in outdoor survival and excellent marksmen. All had to be fluent in both English and Navajo, and all of the approximately 450 Code Talkers became fully trained Marines. They were kept completely unaware of their eventual special mission until the basic training was completed, then the signal training and code memorization began.

It proved to be a great speed advantage to have such an unbreakable code that The Paper - 760.747.7119

required no deciphering--a Navajo Code Talker was on both ends of the radio, simply speaking his own language and using some coded phrases for military terms not present in the Navajo language.

The word “battalion” was coded as “red soil” which was spoken in Navajo as “tacheene.” “Philippines” became “floating island” and was pronounced “ke-yah-dana-lhe.” The code for “artillery” was “many big guns,” spoken as “be-al-doh-tsolani.” A tank became a “tortoise,” in the Navajo “chay-dagahi.” Eventually over 600 special words were coded in addition to the normal language. Needless to say, the Japanese never came close to figuring out the code. Even our military was skeptical about the new code. Those who first heard of it thought it would be too hard to use, and take too long to decipher. An experiment was held at Camp Pendleton, testing the old codes against the Navajo Code Talkers. A message that took almost two hours to encrypt, transmit, and decipher utilizing the old codes only took the Navajos about two and a half minutes—no contest at all!

The Code Talkers were used in just about every major Marine Corps. battle in the Pacific--starting with Guadalcanal, on to New Britain, Bouganville, Tarawa, Guam, Iwo Jima, and finally Okinawa. The use of the Navajo code is credited with saving many lives in the heat of battle, as situations changed so rapidly that the Code Talkers messages were practically instantaneous and completely usable as received. The secret of the Code Talkers remained just that after the war--a secret. It wasn’t until 23 years later that some of the details were

ing at the headquarters right behind the front lines.

“Most of the message we sent involved changed plans,” he recalled, adding that “there were a lot of different types of messages.” Peaches also remembered that some Navajo Code Talkers did have bodyguards, especially on Okinawa. When asked if those bodyguards would have killed the Code Talkers if they were about to fall into enemy hands, as the movie “Windtalkers” brought out, he said “Yes, it was that important.” It never had to happen, fortunately.

Another story claims the bodyguards were solely for the Code Talkers own protection from our troops, as their dark features caused several to be challenged at the front lines where it was not uncommon for the Japanese to try to infiltrate wearing captured uniforms. Some were “captured” and held until being identified. Sam Billison, of Window

1. Sometimes I'll look down at my watch three consecutive times and still not know what time it is. 2. Nothing is more distressing than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong. 3. I totally take back all those times I didn't want to nap when I was younger. 4.

Rock, AZ, also trained at Camp Pendleton. He did his advanced training in Hawaii, and then cruised toward the Mariannas with the 5th Division of the Marines. Billison was one of a handful of Marines sent on to Iwo Jima three days before DDay, as part of a special reconnaissance force. He was back on the command ship by the time of the main landings, and handled secret messages destined for the admirals and Secretary Forrester. “I hardly slept—there were always messages coming in,” Billison recalled. “There were tremendously many messages going in and out, so much that we didn’t have time to sleep,” he added. The Code Talkers only had time to handle the most secret messages, and Billison said they “didn’t fool with the routine ones.” His group of six Code Talkers handled a total of around 800 messages in one 48-hour period during the battle. He left Iwo Jima on Easter morning, heading back to Hawaii for more training. They were being prepared for the eventual planned landings

on Japan, but the atomic bombs were dropped while they were still in training, ending the war. By the time he got to Japan in October 1945, it was only for occupational duty. Billison is the President of the Navajo Code Talkers Association, formed in 1971--about three years after the Code Talkers mission became declassified. He also recalled Major Howard Conner of the 5th Marine Division, who stated “If it wasn’t for the Navajo Code Talkers, the Marines would never have taken Iwo Jima.” That was some pretty good praise for their efforts. Billison also served as a consultant for the “Windtalkers” movie, which he felt was “a great war picture.” George Smith now resides in New Mexico, but during the war he trained at both Camp Kearny and also the Camp Elliot site near San Diego which is now a part of today’s MCAS Miramar base. He was part of the 2nd Marine Division, which sailed for Hawaii and Camp Wellington, New Zealand, for further training.

Even under ideal conditions people have trouble locating their car keys in a pocket, finding their cell phone, and Pinning the Tail on the Donkey - but I'd bet everyone can find and push the snooze button from 3 feet away, in about 1.7 seconds, eyes closed, first time, every time.

Smith got into the severe battle at Tarawa, where he remembered “I manned a command post, sending the messages.” He went back to Hawaii for more training, then fought at Saipan and Tinian. At Iwo Jima, he was part of what he called “the floating reserve,” then made the landings at Okinawa.

William Kien is now well into his eighties, but still remembers his time with the 4th Division of the Marines. He trained at the Marine Corps Recruit Depot in San Diego, Camp Pendleton, and also at Twenty-nine Palms in the desert. In 1944, he sailed for the Marshall Islands, stopping in Hawaii for a few hours, then seeing action in Kwajalein, where he first saw Japanese soldiers, and then Roi Namor. Kien was a radioman, always using the Navajo code, and served under Lt. Col. Justice Chambers. Chambers was awarded the Medal of Honor. Kien went back to Hawaii for more training at an advance ‘Navajo Code Talkers’ Cont. on Page 3

base in Maui. Despite the location, it had nothing to do with fun—“there were few weekend passes, the message was that ‘we’ve got to win this war’,” he remembered. He went back into action in the Mariannas, Saipan, Tinian, and back to Hawaii for continued training.

From Hawaii, it was back to Iwo Jima—which Kien remembers as the “biggest one, it was really something.” He made the landings on February 19, 1945. They had been told that the island would take three days to capture, but it was not secured for 26 days. Kien got a Bronze Star for evacuating a wounded comrade that had been hit by a Japanese rocket attack. “One night our Command Post on Iwo Jima was hit by Japanese rockets,” Kien recalled. He was trying to lay low in a foxhole with partner Roy Becenti. Through the smoke, Kien saw Pvt. Schaeffer get hit in the arm, and while running toward the Command Post he got hit again and went down. “I went after him and dragged him to the hole,” said Kien. A corpsman eventually came and they evacuated Schaeffer on a stretcher, taking him to a first aide station and eventually to a hospital ship, where he survived.

While in the Marshall Islands, an injury to his own leg brought Kien back to Hawaii, where he was still recovering in a hospital when the war ended. Kien stayed in the reserves, and eventually was called back to service for Korea in time to participate in the Chosin Reservoir campaign. His leg injury never quite healed properly, and Kien finally retired after 22 years of military service, missing being sent to Vietnam. The initial 29 Navajo Code Talkers were honored with a special Congressional Gold Medal in the summer of 2001, and the rest, a total of 392 later recruits, received a Congressional Silver Medal in November 2001. More than half were no longer living to see their special honor at that

time. Fewer than 100 of the Code Talkers are still living, but now their place in history is finally assured. http://www.navajocodetalkers.org/ Now, in their 80's and 90's, there aren’t many yet. Just a few. Meet Keith Little:

Keith Little served as a Navajo Code Talker with the US Marine Corps from December of 1943 until after the war. He fought in numerous engagements of WWII, including battles in the Marshall Islands, Sai Pan, and Iwo Jima. Like most of the Navajo Code Talkers, he wasn't aware of the significance of his contribution to the war effort until much later in life. It was only then that he understood the importance of documenting their story for posterity. In conversation about his hopes for the new museum, he speaks with certitude of his desire to teach the younger generations of the importance of striving for excellence and of serving above and beyond the call of duty. Promoting a greater understanding of the Navajo culture, traditions and way of life is a cause he also holds dear. When asked why he chose to go to war, he answers simply: "[because] the Japanese made a sneak attack on the US," adding that he wanted "to protect our people, land and country." Meet Teddy Draper Sr.:

Teddy Draper Sr. joined the Marines on November 3rd, 1943, and was soon after sent overseas as a Navajo Code Talker serving in many harrowing campaigns. In the assault on Iwo Jima, he was wounded in the face and leg by mortar fire but continued to fight on with his comrades. He landed with the 28th Marines on Green Beach and, at one point, bravely ran

through heavy enemy fire and back again to retrieve lost equipment needed to open lines of communication. It was a distinguished act for which he was promoted. Sadly, he lost many friends during this bloody struggle. Teddy Draper Sr. later went on to serve in occupied Japan, where he became proficient in his third language, which he still remembers today. He was discharged May 16th, 1946.

Meet Bill Toledo: Bill Toledo was a Navajo Code Talker for three years from October 1942 to October 1945. He served in many engagements including the Battle of Bougainville in the British Solomon Islands, and the battles for Guam and Iwo Jima. On the island of Guam, while filling in as a messenger, he narrowly escaped sniper bullets by means of some quick footwork. Impressed by his moves, some of the Marines jokingly asked about his football career before the war. Not all Marines were so jovial, though. On one occasion, while marching through the jungle, he was mistaken for a Japanese soldier and taken prisoner. After being marched back to headquarters at gunpoint, he was assigned a bodyguard to avoid future misunderstandings. Although the danger is gone, he still gets calls to this day making sure he's okay. Bill Toledo feels it is important to share experiences like his with new generations so that they may understand the cost of freedom and the sacrifices which were made on their behalf. Meet Samuel Tso:

When Navajo Code Talker Samuel Tso saw the tiny island of Iwo Jima for the first time, he thought US forces would be able to take it

January 17, 2013 - Page 3

in one day. Even as they landed, the beaches were dead quiet. Only after they had made their way up the beach did the heavily entrenched Japanese open fire. It was not long before the young Marine reconsidered his first assessment. It would take more than a month of brutal combat before the island was secured. Samuel Tso bravely served with the US Marine Corps from February 13th, 1943, to March 29th, 1946. Even now, some 65 years later, he recalls with clarity the experience of crouching in bomb craters for cover, unable to ascertain the direction of fire until comrades on the opposite side of the crater were killed. Hearing his experiences, it becomes quite clear why the Navajo Code Talkers Museum & Veterans' Project is so meaningful to him. It will be a place where the Code Talkers can tell their own harrowing stories and help promote the cause of peace. Contact Information

To the code talkers, who proved they could encode and decode messages much faster than any machine, the information was crystal-clear.To the untrained ear, Navajo sounds like nothing more than a series of hisses, clicks and guttural and nasal noises. But that was only because they had learned to adapt Navajo words to describe military equipment. For instance, the code name for “tank” came from the Navajo word for “tortoise,” the Navajo word for “egg” became code for “bomb,” and the term for “hand grenade” was derived from the Navajo word for “potato.” The code was so highly specialized that even other Navajos couldn’t understand it if they hadn’t been trained.

Though it was funded by city/taxpayer money, Phillips refuses to release the results, saying it is a “personnel matter.” This same postion was taken by city attorney, Jeff Epp. Though critics contend this is unfair, that if taxpayer money is used then taxpayers have a right to the information, the debate now is moving on to another arena . . . the question of who will be the next Chief of Police. Whether to conduct a nationwide search or to promote from within. Both options have advantages and disadvantages. Assistant Chief Cory Moles was promoted to interim chief when Maher was placed on leave Sept. 12 pending the investigation.

out of my right eye with 20/25 vision, thanks to recent cataract surgery.

I had been worried about my deteriorating eyesight as I do a great deal of reading for research on The Paper. The eyes were screaming at me to knock it off and rest up. Blurry vision, tired eyes, the whole nine yards. Come to find out, I had small cataracts in both eyes - small, but enough to impede vision.

If you have cataracts, run, do not walk to your ophthalmologist and explore cataract surgery. It is a piece of cake. No discomfort, no pain, the procedure takes about 15 minutes.

I didn’t have to squint and move to within two to three inches to read the time. What’s more I still had the transparent eye patch on. Once I removed it, the vision was even more

The city denied those requests, saying the documents are confidential peace officer records and are exempt from disclosure.

Maher has had a great deal of public support with several rallies calling for his reinstatement and for the termination of City Manager Clay Phillips. Supporters allege Phillips used the basis of the investigation as a lever to move Maher out of office and that Phillips did not like the way Maher ran the department. The Mayor and City Council members all refused to intervene and supported Phillips in his actions. Phillips does not comment on the relationship between him and Maher. When Maher was placed on leave, the chief said the personnel investigation was launched shortly after he alerted Phillips that two Police Department employees might have engaged in improper conduct.

She laughed and said, “no, we’ll wait about five weeks to do the left eye.”

I cannot adequately describe what a tremendous change this cataract surgery has made with my vision. The doctor is happy, I am deliriously happy. Twenty/thirty years ago, cataract surgery was a big deal. Discomfort, pain, etc. Today? It is absolutely a routine procedure that takes about 15 minutes.

cials have identified those employees. No one other than Maher was placed on leave as a result of the investigation.

Maher announced Oct. 31, while the investigation was still under way, that he would retire Dec. 31.

Mayor Sam Abed said this week that it was crucial the new chief support some controversial Police Department policies put in place in recent years. They include frequent staging of traffic safety checkpoints and a close partnership with federal immigration officials.

“We need somebody to continue to implement the successful policies we’ve had for years and strengthen them,” said Abed, adding that those policies have been popular with most Escondido residents. Councilwoman Olga Diaz, the lone council member who has criticized the city’s handling of the Maher investigation, and who is married to

Escondido police Lt. Neal Griffin, said a national search was essential.

“I understand why developing talent internally is appealing, but in the case of Escondido, it would be healthy to bring in an external candidate,” Diaz said. “Police officers took sides on the Chief Maher thing, and some even protested. Hiring an outsider might zero out all the tension.” But Councilman Ed Gallo said hiring from outside could be risky. Many feathers were ruffled in the department in 1987 when Carlsbad Police Chief Vince Jimno was hired as Escondido’s chief, Gallo said. “The whole department didn’t function well,” he said.

“We want the guy hired two years ago or tomorrow to know he could be chief some day if he works hard and does the right things,” Gallo said. Escondido Sushi Cooked

Root Canal or Extraction? There May Be Another Option!

NOBODY LIKES TO HEAR “YOU NEED A ROOT CANAL!” or “THAT TOOTH NEEDS TO BE EXTRACTED!” when visiting a dentist. Yes, these certainly are the needed treatments in many cases where decay and/or infection have progressed too far and they are the only treatments left. As dentists we all have our share of patients coming in on an emergency basis who are experiencing pain, and it used to be expected that an extraction or root canal therapy were the last two choices. Not surprisingly, with the development of modern materials and treatments, a third choice has become available. Using a procedure called “Pulp Capping,” dental materials called liners can be used where the removal of

decay and/or old restoration comes close to or slightly exposes the main nerve chamber of the tooth, the Pulp, but where infection is minimal. In the past these liners were frequently used beneath dental restorations to reduce post-treatment pain and sensitivity. Now they have taken on a much greater role when placed to protect the main nerve chamber of

The “New Kid” on the block in terms of pulp capping materials is a combination of Calcium Hydroxide mixed in with a resin silicate. Calcium hydroxide has long been known to have the capacity to mobilize growth factors in your tooth’s dentin, causing the formation of new “reparative dentin.” The greatest chance for success is if placed “close” to the pulp (indirectly), however, success can still occur when placed “directly” on the pulp “IF” the exposure is small. It has been shown that if a 0.5 mm thickness of tooth structure (dentin) remains, it reduces the effects of toxins on the pulp by 75%, and with a 1.0mm thickness it reduces to 90%. At 2.0 mm dentin thickness or more, there is little to no pulp reaction. In some cases dentists have new patients who come into our office that are often experiencing “no pain at all,” yet, during the examination deep

claimed the week of December 10–17, 2012, “Oceanside Charitable Foundation Week” to commemorate the foundation’s fifth anniversary. Since its founding in 2007, the Oceanside Charitable Foundation (OCF) decay is detected that they are unaware of. If their decay is very extensive, with the new materials at our disposal, we can sometimes apply a pulp cap, and if successful, avoid the need for a root canal. The capping material is applied over the nerve and then covered by a buildup and protective restoration, which is normally a crown. One caveat … sometimes a tooth that has been pulp capped eventually needs root canal therapy in the future … but the cost for capping is so small that, if successful, you’ve saved several hundreds to over a thousand dollars or more in the meantime! Over the past couple of years our office has experienced an almost 70% decrease in root canal therapies and extractions by using Pulp Capping procedures. The calcium silicates are antibacterial, biocompatible, and have a high pH that has an “alkalinizing effect” stimulating wound healing and aids in the release of bioactive dentin proteins for repairing your tooth. These Pulp Capping materials are now easily placed and light cured allowing the subsequent restorative procedure to be completed at the same appointment!. Are you a candidate for Pulp

Capping? That’s a decision only your Dentist can make. There are dentists that won’t consider Pulp Capping because some patients can experience some discomfort for a period of time afterwards, while the tooth is repairing itself. There is also the possibility of failure when the treatment is unsuccessful and the patient still experiences some pain. In these cases root canal treatment is done immediately to relieve your symptoms. As dentists we know that a non-root canaled tooth is usually healthier than one that has had its canals done. By using the Pulp Capping procedure when there is a definite possibility of its success, we’re erring on the side of best health for our patients. Root Canal Therapy or Extractions used to be the only alternative patients had for deep decay. Now, with the newer materials and techniques available, Pulp Capping can be a healthy third alternative! Our patients treated with Pulp Capping have been very happy with the successful results, because it leaves them wealthier (in the pocketbook)

‘Navajo Code Talkers’ Cont. from Page 3

when they captured Navajos in the Philippines and brought them to Japan in an attempt to figure out the meaning of all the talk about tortoises, eggs and potatoes, Willetto said. The men had no clue, he said, and were released, but only after they were tortured.

When a code talker was given a message in English, he had to put it into Navajo code for the code talker at the other end of the line. That code talker then relayed the message, in English, to his commander. Even though the code talkers were performing special tasks, they didn’t get special treatment. After they memorized more than 200 Navajo-based code terms and their English equivalents, the code talkers were put into combat units and sent into battle, armed with their rifles — and their radios, telephones, pens and note-

“While we were shooting and the radio or telephone rang, we put down our rifles and took the messages,” Samuel Tso, 87, said.

With 40 pounds of communication gear on his back, “I was ready to send a message or receive a message anytime, regardless of what was going on around me,” said Little, who served on the Marshall Islands, Saipan and Iwo Jima.

“When a message came in, you start writing it down right there, or you send a message right there,” he said. “You don’t wait. You stop what you’re doing. What you’re doing is receiving and sending messages. That’s your job.” The system was efficient, said Bill Toledo, 85, citing an incident on Iwo Jima when his battalion commander told him to request an artillery barrage on a nearby hill that sat atop a pillbox and a tunnel.

Toledo encoded the request and sent it to his Navajo

volunteer to come to the Municipal Gallery any time during a three-week period to paint or do collage work. The paper, some basic acrylic paint colors and gel medium is provided free, but artists need to bring their own brushes, scissors, and any other tools they need, including additional acrylic colors or collage materials. Donations of any paint or collage materials are always appreciated. Once the artwork is done and dry, the public will be able to purchase whatever section of the long painting they want to fit the size mat they want. Painting begins on Saturday, January 19 at 12:30, when the Gallery opens. For info, send an email to Donna Meyer at donna.artsycalgal@pacbell.net. The Gallery is open Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday from 11am to 4pm. Last year 17 artists participated; this year more artists are anticipated.

Women are accepted too. The shows will be held at the Poway Center for the Performing Arts; tentatively scheduled for the

counterpart about a mile away. The attack was launched, and Marines took advantage of the dust to lob in hand grenades and dynamite to destroy the hill. Elapsed time: six to eight minutes, Toledo said.

The code talkers’ work could be deadly. Thirteen were killed, he said.

After the war, the code talkers were ordered to tell no one-- not even their families -what they had done. They remained silent until 1968, when material about their work was declassified. In the 1970s, the Navajo nation decided to assemble as many code talkers as possible for reunions.

Because they had been silent for so long, “we looked at each other and said, ‘You, too?’” Little said.

Shortly after President Ronald Reagan was inaugurated in 1981, he invited the code talkers to the White House. Coverage of that occasion helped make the nation

This was 42 years ago. Our radio station, KOWN, working with the Escondido Chamber of Commerce, arranged for a horseback ride from Old Town in San Diego to Escondido (about 40 miles), retracing, in reverse, the route Kit Carson had taken when seeking reinforcements after a disasterous military engagement against the Californios [Mexican Cavalry] (we got our butts kicked) near Mule Hill, just outside Escondido.

We ran (walked) the horses in relays. I arranged with the then Miramar Naval Air Station Special Service officer to provide us with horses from Miramar's stables (today, it is the Miramar Marine Air Station). We arranged for dignitaries to ride various relays, switching off about every 3-5 miles and then having other dignitaries mount the horse for the next 3-5 miles. We made it about 5pm back to Kit Carson Park utterly exhausted. I had ridden all the way . . . no relays. All the way. I was beat. They had a big celebration at the end of the ride, including a picnic. I grabbed a quick bite to eat, a cold drink, and headed home. Then I made a big mistake. I jumped into our swimming pool.

‘Letters to the Editor’ Cont. from Page 5 This is the same newspaper that recently advised us that Chief Maher was asked to go home while two other senior officers in the police department were investigated. Subsequently this same newspaper told us that Chief Maher was being retired and that the investigation of others was incomplete. I have to hand it to them, this is the absolute best I have ever seen in investigative reporting. Most in Escondido had gravitated toward simply forgetting about this travesty; but no, now they tell us that the investigation of Maher is over. Nobody ever said he was being investigated in the first place.

All the citizenry is told is that there seemed to be some skullduggery in the police department and "Trust us" it's been investigated and think it is resolved. We, the public, the taxpayer, have no right to know anything as skullduggery information is sacrosanct in a sequestered

personnel file, someplace, somewhere. Trust us. BS.,MS & PHD

Offended

I was shocked and offended that your January 10 issue had this off color and insensitive "humor" in it. See attached image. That's amazingly irresponsible of your publication. (See image at right) Sonny Portacio San Diego County

Editor’s Comment: We love the Persian people. We also love all Baha’is. We do not love the Radical Islamic Leadership of Iran. If they do not end their outrageous behavior toward the rest of the world, the image will prove to be prophetic. At the moment the image may be a humorous commentary; in the future, who knows? We stand by our decision to publish.

And damn near died from shock. My overheated body hit that cool, cool water and it was truly a shock. Were I to do that today it would surely have killed me . . . but I was young then (42 years younger). Notice the dark hair and slender frame. I'm a tad heavier now, and my hair has a streak or two of grey to it. In the pic, the handsome blonde haired guy in the foreground is Alan Skuba, the owner of KOWN, the radio station I managed, and the Mayor of Escondido. He and I have remained life long friends to this day and communicate almost daily via email. Hard to believe we were once that young.

To help you make the right decision on buying something to make your life easier? We had an experience recently that brought back that good, warm feeling of dealing with a business with that attitude. I went to Mart’s Appliance 743 E. Valley Parkway in Escondido, and spoke with Marlene Page, one of the owners. She and her husband have owned the business since 1974. My Norelco electric razor wasn’t cutting it and thought I’d get some new blades. They had them in stock and I said, “fine, go ahead and give them to me.” “Would you like to know how much they cost first?” she asked.

Glad she asked. They were $49.95 . . . about half the price of a new razor. I decided to not buy them and probably just purchase a new razor instead. Mart’s Appliance doesn’t sell electric razors or I’d buy from them. You can bet, however, that if I need appliance repair, I’ll be heading for Mart’s Appliance. I like businesses who look after me and my best interests.

‘Local News’ Cont. from Page 5 to hike water and sewer rates this winter by asking the city to increase their subsidy.

A debate is likely to ensue as critics claim the subsidies, which amount to more than $1 million a year, unfair to the city’s sewer and water customers who are not in agriculture. Even if no subsidy is granted, these customers saw a doubledigit water rate increase last year, and they face 12 percent hikes in March.

Farmers argue the subsidy is good business because local agriculture is an economic engine providing thousands of local jobs. Escondido’s water customers have subsidized local farmers for decades.

“Escondido growers need lower water costs, and the city needs customers for its recycled water,” said Eddie Grangetto, president of a farming coalition called Escondido Growers for Agricultural Preservation. “It’s a perfect match.”

So the proposal says the city’s sewer customers, as well as water customers, should subsidize farmers now, in exchange for the long-term benefits they will get when the farmers begin buying recycled water from the city’s sewer system. Councilwoman Olga Diaz, the council’s most vocal agriculture booster, said the city should embrace the new proposal.

“Our farms are at a breaking point,” she said. “Any more increases, and they will be reducing the acreage they farm.”

Diaz also said the adjusted rates shouldn’t be viewed as a subsidy. “We need a preferential rate for farmers so they can survive and expand,” Diaz said. “It’s not a subsidy, it’s an investment in the future.” Diaz said farmers are “doing the city a favor” by agreeing to buy recycled water two years from now, and that the city will regret it if many farms get plowed under before then.

San Marcos • Mayor Jim Desmond

Significant heating and cooling equipment improvements at City Hall

The City of San Marcos completed a necessary heating and cooling equipment replacement project just in time for the New Year. The heating and air-conditioning systems (HVAC) for the San Marcos Civic Center, which includes city hall, the community center, and library buildings, have been in service for nearly two decades putting them well

beyond their useable life. By modernizing the HVAC equipment, the City will reduce energy consumption and maintenance costs at city hall while generating overall cost savings. Overall, the goal of the project was to improve energy efficiency and ensure City Hall’s ability to provide reliable, comfortable building temperatures to paying tenants and City staff. Total HVAC replacement costs of $602,000 will be offset by rebates from San Diego Gas & Electric and fully funded by the California Energy Commission’s low-interest loan program.

Nome and Paul Van Middlesworth thecomputerfactoryltd.com The Computer Factory Viva Las Vegas, CES Part One

As representatives of “the working press,” we spent most of last week in Las Vegas at the world’s largest consumer technology exhibition, the 2013 CES (Consumer Electronic Show). Those who read newspapers or watch TV have by now seen at least some news item from the CES. Perhaps it was “HAPIfork,” the miracle smartfork that guarantees painless weight loss. Maybe it was the $250,000 all-electric Rolls Royce with its cordless recharging carpet. It could have been the infamously under-whelming keynote presentation by Qualcom CEO Paul Jacobs, complete with cameo appearances by Bishop Desmond Tutu, Microsoft CEO “Monkey Boy Ballmer” and a clumsily scripted skit depicting

New Year, New Responsibilities

Last week, Senate leadership announced committee membership for 2013. I am looking forward to my new and recurring assignments.

I will continue working on the Transportation Committee to help address our state’s transportation needs. In the Labor Committee, I will remain a pragmatic voice for employers and employees. In the Business and Professions Committee, I will continue to help ensure that professions are clearly defined and industry standards are fair for consumers.

I also now serve as member of the Budget Committee and the Education Committee. While these positions are new compared to last session, they are committees that I have enjoyed serving on in the past.

the Internet mobility of a trio of annoying nerds. It was embarrassing.

Words or pictures cannot convey the immensity of the CES. It not only overwhelms the senses, it overwhelms the convention and transportation facilities of Las Vegas as well. CES has over 3,000 exhibits covering nearly 2 million square feet of exhibit space and 156,000 registered attendees yet IT IS NOT OPEN TO THE PUBLIC. To qualify for an international or domestic entry badge you must either pay for it as a registered exhibitor or prove in advance that you qualify with a bona fide electronics industry credential (press, buyer, academic, industry analyst, engineer or industry affiliate). Attendance credentials are mailed out months in advance. If you lose your credentials or arrive without them you will pay $200 to be reinstated. There are no tourists at CES, it is serious business and everyone at the show has a job to do.

A few major exhibitors with dazzling displays near the main entrances of the Las Vegas Convention Center are seen by most convention attendees simply because you can’t miss them but most booths are seen by only a fraction of the attendees. No one comes to the show for the purpose of seeing all the exhibits. For the most part the nonexhibitor attendees are there for a specific reason: to meet with clients, check out the competition, or learn more

I look forward to rejoining both to address our state’s greatest challenges: reducing spending and education reform.

California’s taxpayers expect the state’s budget to be balanced and responsible. In addition, our state’s education system is ranked one of the worst in the nation, and the legislature must prioritize education reform. We need to improve the dropout rate, curriculum standards, science and math education, career technical education, and much more.

Senator Mark Wyland represents the people of the 38th Senate District, which includes San Diego (Rancho Bernardo, 4S Ranch, Rancho Penasquitos, Carmel Valley) and Solana Beach, Encinitas, Carlsbad, Rancho Santa Fe, San Marcos, Escondido, Vista the south Orange County cities of San Clemente and San Juan Capistrano.

about specific technologies. There are fifteen basic product categories and twenty-six “tech zones” arranged over nineteen exhibit halls in three major venues. The venues, LVCC (Las Vegas Convention Center), LVH (Las Vegas Hotel), and The Venetian, are connected by taxi, free shuttle bus and monorail. No matter what the mode of transportation you choose, you will wait in line to catch it. Driving and parking in and around the “strip” during CES is out of the question.

If you tried to spend one minute at each exhibit it would take you over fifty hours to cover the show. You’d need to double that to account for the time needed to walk between exhibits

and exhibit halls, levels and venues making it at least a 100-hour task. Unfortunately the CES is only open thirty-five hours during its entire four day run. In order to visit each exhibit you would need to walk about thirtyfive miles. At the brisk pace of 3.5 miles per hour you could walk the entire show in a day and a half, as long as you didn’t stop to look at anything. The people that really have fun at the CES are the exhibitors. They lounge about their booths all day and then party all night on expense accounts. Next week we’ll discuss some of the interesting products and technologies from the 2013 CES.

Dick has retired, so to speak.

He no longer pastors a church but he does serve as the Escondido Police Department Chaplain, he does minister to several senior citizen groups, and he holds a regular Sunday morning service at the Fairwinds Retirement Home in Oceanside. I decided to attend his service last Sunday at 10:30. When I arrived, the place was packed. Dick had saved a seat for me so I was right up front where I could see and hear quite easily. As I suspected, Dick’s sermons are every bit as interesting as his presenations at civic and service club groups (which are not centered on religion but on subjects as diverse as bee-keeping, living in Israel, his work as a Chaplain . . . a fascinating life and man). Dick’s sermon was down to earth, easy to understand, and pleasing to hear.

As the first month of the New Year draws to a close, so does the Fixed Rate reverse mortgage. We will know in the coming year what changes may be made to the fixed rate product to allow its return to the market. It may take longer than a year for anything to happen. Time will tell. For now, the Fixed Rate program is under a moratorium effective January 31st. The remaining reverse mortgage product line will consist of the Fixed Rate Saver, the Adjustable Rate Libor HECM (Home Equity Conversion Mortgage) and the Adjustable Rate Saver. The two Saver programs, Fixed and Adjustable, have lower lend-

For instance, the mortgage insurance premium on a $297,000 home, with a loan amount of $187,000, is $5,946.00 for a Fixed Rate loan. The mortgage insurance premium on the same home with a lower loan amount of $157,285 for a Fixed Rate Saver loan is only $29.00! So, while you receive less money, you don’t pay a large mortgage insurance premium either. This program can perform just as well as the regular Fixed Rate program that is under the moratorium. The Adjustable Rate Libor HECM program remains. For many years, this was the only choice; there was no Fixed Rate program and no Saver program. This program worked very well for a very long time and provided relief to many homeowners. Even with changes to the program, the Reverse Mortgage offers a solution to many different dilemmas - whether that is to pay off an existing mortgage or improving your finances

ing an income stream for your retirement. Providing solutions to so many seniors throughout the years is a privilege. Whether the solution is purchasing property during a buyer’s market, assisting children purchase a home or hang on to their current home, helping grandchildren with college costs, paying for your own in-home healthcare, pre-gifting inheritance or taking a final trip around the world with your spouse, the Reverse Mortgage program is there. You’ve worked hard your whole life; retirement can be less stressful by utilizing this pro-

I’ve often thought that life is like a roll of toilet paper. The closer you get to the end, the faster it goes. On Sermons

Don't ask children a question during your sermon.

A Baptist pastor was presenting a children's sermon. During the sermon, he asked the children if they knew what the resurrection was. Now, asking questions during children's sermons is crucial, but at the same time, asking children questions in front of a congregation can also be very dangerous. Having asked the children if they knew the meaning of the resurrection, a little boy raised his hand. The pastor called on him and the little boy said, "I know that if you have a resurrection that lasts more than four hours you are supposed to call the doctor." It took over ten minutes for the congregation to settle down enough from their laughter for the worship service to be continued. ••••• Calvin Rickson, an engineer from Texas A&M University, has designed a bra that keeps women’s breasts from juggling up and down, bouncing side to side, and keeps the nipples from protruding when
