Editor’s Note: A lot of folks grew up in the midwest and/or the east coast area. They know, or remember, what cold is like.

Most of us who have moved to California remember the biting cold winters of our younger years. Those who experienced it, remember. Those who never have been truly cold . . . well, you had to be there.

Our Kent Ballard takes you there vicariously as he describes in fine fashion just what it’s like to experience ... cold: I want Spring.

I've been cold. And I learned that it can't kill you more than once. But it can sure as hell make you wonder if death isn't more comfortable than losing all feeling in your extremities, even after the cold has disappeared and the sheer pain that replaces it fades away.

When I was a very young man I read about explorers in the Antarctic. They said when they would spit, their saliva would freeze before it hit the ground. During the terrible Blizzard of '78, when it was colder in Indianapolis than it was in mid-winter Anchorage, Alaska, all regular TV broadcasting in those pre-cable days was suspended and every TV channel was giving news reports, repeating that everything--and I mean EVERYTHING--was closed, and for the love of God not to venture outside for any reason. This, they said, was something that we Hoosiers were not accustomed to. This wasn't just an extraordinarily cold snap. This was "killing cold," in the serious words of one weatherman.

Another said, looking seriously into the camera, to remain in shelter wherever you were. I'll never forget his warning: "Death is walking the streets right now. You cannot and will not survive more than a few The Paper - 760.747.7119

minutes outside. This is NOT Indiana weather. This is NOT anything your parents or even grandparents ever had to face. This is unique since weather records have been kept, and as far as we can research, even before that."

I was young, cocky, strong, and stupid. But--I had been smart enough that the year before, I

installed a huge wood-burning stove in my home. I still had strong ties to the rural people I had grown up with far outside of Indy, and there were plenty of old friends who allowed me to cut their dead trees up for firewood. I had probably two tons of it outside, wrapped in blowing and flapping tarps. The house furnace was run-

Closets were dug around in. My cold-weather hunting gear came out...all of it. Two complete sets of long thermal underwear went on. Three

pairs of thick wool hunting socks. My biggest pair of pants, two sweatshirts, insulated boots, and heavily insulated, camouflaged hunting coveralls. Thick gloves. A toboggan was under the insulated hood of my coveralls.

I eventually came lumbering down the stairs into the kitchen to be greeted by the saucer-shaped eyes of my first wife. "You...you're not going to ... good lord, I didn't even think you were that crazy..."

"I figured you knew me better by now. Look, the furnace can't keep up. The kids are all bundled up in blankets. Hell, you're sitting there in your sweat pants wearing a coat. And you think I look silly? I'm gonna split some firewood and bring it in. Lay down some old throw rugs in the living room next to the stove, willya? I'll stack it there." And with that, I opened the door. My step-daughter heard this and came rushing around the corner. She looked at me for a moment, knowing what I was going to do, and said flatly, "The weatherman just said the

One night a nurse was making her rounds in a nursing home. While walking down the hall, she came across an open door. She looked in and saw old Frank sitting up in bed pretending to drive.

She asked, 'Frank, what are you doing?'

He replied, 'I'm driving to Toronto.' The nurse smiled at him and carried on making her rounds The next night as she walked past Frank's room she saw the same thing. Again she asked, 'Frank, what are you doing?'

wind chill was sixty-five degrees below zero ..."

I gave a brave grin and said, "In a little while you'll be trying on new swimsuits." And out the door I went.

It was like an electric shock. Initially, it was more amazing than uncomfortable or frightening. I simply could not believe my patio could be that temperature. This wasn't my home. Hell, this wasn't even earth! It was as if I'd stepped out into deep space. There was an unreality about it.

The first thing that went to hell were my glasses. Three or four breaths and the steam from my lungs froze them over, making them useless. I fumbled with my gloves and got them into a pocket on the coveralls. I had to kick the splitting axe (known as a "maul") to free it as it had frozen to the grass in the yard under the ever-deepening snow. It was still coming down hard and heavy, but you couldn't tell what was fresh snow and what was being blown by the 40 to 50 MPH winds, winds that were like having razors shot at you from a compressed air hose. I wasn't all that surprised that

He replied, 'I'm driving to Toronto. It's a two day trip, you know!' The nurse smiled at him and carried on making her rounds.

Five minutes later she came across another open door and looked in. She saw Bob pretending to dance with someone. She then asked, 'Bob, what are you doing?'

Bob replied, 'I'm dancing with Franks wife. He's gone to Toronto for a couple of days...'. Married Life 101

when I actually started splitting the wood, swinging the heavy maul over my head and cracking the large sections of cut beech, ash, oak, and hickory into pieces that would fit into my stove, that I began to warm up. Hard work is the best thing you can do in those temperatures. It's when you become exhausted and can no longer work or hike or pull a heavy sled that it truly becomes dangerous. But I was young then and had a young man's strength...and ego. Load after load came into the house while my wife busied herself with starting a fire, adjusting the damper and air vents, and getting it roaring. With each trip I made in with armloads of wood, you could feel the difference, first in the living room, then throughout the house. The kids started shedding their blankets while still glued to the TV. I told them to remember as much of this as they could, as they were seeing history being made. After a while our living room began to resemble a saw mill. Wood was stacked high and my wife had wisely put layers of newspaper under the throw rugs to catch the melting snow, even after I had knocked most of it off before bringing it in.

"I want to take a look around. Visibility is rotten out there. I want to walk to the corner and see what the streets look like." She made all kinds of wifely complaints about my idea, all of them logical, but I was all bundled up and very warm from the work. I should have listened to her.

By the time I had trudged through to the nearest street with stop lights on it, I was already losing body heat. Fast. But I was gripped by what I was seeing. It was surreal. The lights were still working as usual, going through their colors at their usual pace, but there was absolutely no traffic. Lights would turn red, but there were no brake lights because there were no cars.

Lights would turn green, but there was no cross-traffic. There was nothing. No cars, no people, no human thing out there except for me looking at ... nothing. I was reminded of those old 50's science fiction movies of the last man on earth, or the ones about a nuclear holocaust. I was the only living thing seeing all this. It was eerie to say the least.

I spit. This did not work out well, as I had a mustache and the spit hit the ice hanging from it. Ice? On my face? I slipped off a glove (a bad mistake) and rubbed my face. I could no longer feel the horrid cold, just that my mustache was a solid bar of ice with little icicles hanging from it. It hurt

Letters to the Editor

To the Writer, Kent Ballard

I had tears in my eyes before finishing your wonderful story about the Candy Bomber. The written word, photos and pacing was super.

I subscribe to the notion of doing 20 or more good deeds a day. Feeling that when I do, I can justify taking up space on this planet.

And I had stood there, motionless, for too long. Like about three minutes. I'd lost the excess heat I'd built up and realized, too late, that I had also worked up a sweat while swinging that heavy maul and hauling all that wood. Now my damp inner clothing was beginning to chill, and chill rapidly.

This is how young men learn to become old men. I knew if I didn't get back to the house I would only become colder and colder, then slower and slower. That weatherman had been correct. Death WAS stalking those streets, and he was close and I had to move. I suddenly felt tired, very tired. I wanted to sit down, just for a moment. And I knew what would happen if I did. So I forced myself into a brisk pace for home.

I had several, multiple, layers of insulation all over my body. Why was I so cold? Why were the steps becoming harder and harder with every pace? My first realization that hypothermia was setting in was when I walked directly past my own house. Why did I do that? I turned back and was walking up the slight hill to my house. I began to think this was all funny, genuinely humorous. I walked past my driveway, shivering badly now, and was only 20 or so feet from my door. But I stopped in the drive and, for God only knows what rea-

when I tugged on them. They wouldn't let go. So I used one of my bare fingers to lift up the little icicles and spit again. Of course, I was not moving while doing any of these antics and was going deeper into hypothermia within shouting distance of my own door. But I didn't care. My body core temperature was dropping and I was becoming helplessly stupid and erratic.

I think I stood there like an idiot and spit--or tried to--several times. Without my glasses, I could not see if it froze in midair like the professionals in National Geographic had said. Inner body temperature was falling rapidly now, but oddly, I felt warm--or at least comfortable--again. In the ladder of steps down to death by freezing, this was only a couple of rungs from the bottom. Somehow, I figured out that I could not see my spit turn into ice in midair because I was not wearing my glasses (which was probably true).

So, crankily turning around, like the rusted Tin Man in the "Wizard of Oz," I spat onto my pickup truck hood. (I'd just noticed it was there and handy.) Instant ice. BAM. I mean the

Evil Chuckles

In response to your December 19th "Daily Chuckle," I'd like to add another lesson on irony. A community paper editor publishes a lesson in irony highlighting the injustice of judging ALL of a group of people based on the actions of a few.

The next lesson in irony describes the Food Stamp program as basically a hand-out to lazy Americans. (Not literally, but there is no mistaking the

message.) the editor doesn't seem to realize is that the second lesson in irony is an example of the first. To spell it out, the editor is allowing a generalization to be made about the Food Stamp program based on the actions of a few. Yes, there are Americans who are lazy and seeking a hand-out, but the majority (76%) of the participants in the Food Stamp program are households that include a child, elderly person, or disabled person. Whether or not the "healthy" adult in that household is lazy, the child, elderly person, and disabled person has no choice but to rely on the Food Stamp program to survive. Not to mention the fact that there are healthy, hard-working adults struggling to find a job in this economy, find a job that pays a decent wage (don't get me started on the irony of how certain Americans who don't support the Food Stamp program also don't support a raise in the minimum wage which would reduce reliance on the Food Stamp program), and often can't find even two or more jobs to earn enough to live on.

It is also ironic that in the same issue, the editors chose to celebrate the story of a middle school boy who started a charity providing blankets to dogs in shelters. Here, the editor is encouraging generosity to dogs that are less fortunate and who are in a situation over which they have no control. I'm a dog lover and have no problem donating to help animals (and I have, generously), but I also have no problem donating to charities or paying my share of taxes to help our fellow humans (children, the elderly, the disabled, and even the healthy adult who is struggling) who are in a situation over which they have no control.

I didn't realize The Paper had a political agenda, and I am disappointed that you would present a political position (albeit a poor one) in the guise of humor. Sincerely, Jamie Reiter, PhD

Escondido Police Saturation Patrols Arrest Two for DUI

On Tuesday, December 31st, officers from the Escondido Police Department participated in a DUI Saturation Patrol funded through the California Office of Traffic Safety grant. Officers administered three Field Sobriety Tests and made two arrests for DUI. Officers also issued two citations for driving without a license or on a suspended license. Mobile Home Park Residents Plan Legal Action Over Rent Increases

The residents of Sundance Mobile Home Park, located on North Broadway in Escondido, are facing a large monthly rent increase that they believe is unfair. They have elected to challenge the rent increase.

The residents of Sundance, most of who have lived in their current homes for more than 15 – 20 years, had long term leases that expired in 2010. The residents sought to purchase their spaces from the owner. When those efforts were unsuccessful, the management asked for the residents to sign a new, 5-year lease. It was during this period that the old lease expired.

With no new lease offered and executed, the residents of Sundance automatically were

Local News

placed under the protection of the Escondido Mobile Home Rent Control Ordinance and now were leases the month-to-month. The owners did subsequently offer a new lease. Of the 88 spaces in Sundance MHP, 29 residents on remain to opted month-to-month leases. In January 2013, the park filed a long form rent increase with the city of Escondido asking for rental increases from these 29 residents.

The 29 residents argue that there were a number of problems related to this rent increase and have asked for judicial review of the decision. The ultimate decision of the Rent Review Board was a monthly increase of $124.37 per month/per space in rent and an additional ~$7.00 for cost recovery of half the reported legal expenses incurred.

The residents further argue that in accordance with the Mobile Home Rent Control Ordinance, the park had not offered any justification for a rent increase. According to the ordinance, parks must offer justification for the increase which they are asking (e.g. higher property taxes, allowable capital improvements, demonstrable costs incurred, etc.)

Our driver for those areas showed up at 6am to pick up her papers and the printing plant appeared to be closed. No one would answer the bell; doors pulled down and shut. After an early morning call I sent my driver home. It appeared the printing plant was closed.

We had worked diligently to get the paper to the printing plant one day early (Monday evening instead of Tuesday evening) so we could get the paper out early. We later learned the printing plant was open, that someone was apparentlyu asleep at the switch and didn’t answer the night bell or night phone, that our other two drivers were able to pick up their papers . . . so readers from Escondido, Rancho Bernardo and San Marcos will get their papers on time (a day early).

How To Become a Success

Example: Arie is throwing a big party on January 25th in Ontario, California. The occasion? The shutting down of his pig farm.

But this wasn’t just any pig farm Arie doesn’t do things halfway. He had between 10,000 and 12,000 pigs there.

Why is this important to a story about how to become successful? Bear with me.

Back when Arie was just a young man, his father raised pigs. Arie made a deal to pick up leftover food from the old Fireside Restaurant, which was then located on Felicita Avenue and what is today Centre City Parkway. The restaurant was delighted to have someone haul their unused food away and Arie and his dad had a ready source of food for his pigs at no cost to them. Soon, word spread and other restaurants sought Arie’s services. He obliged as the cost of feeding pigs became very, very

Suddenly, Arie found himself in the Waste Management business.

Arie, being Arie, expanded this business and started charging fees to haul things away. Before long his Waste Management business was booming.

Soon after, Arie acquired the contract to haul unused food away from Camp Pendleton; he leased land in Ontario from the former operator of this business who was known as “The Pig Man.” Arie bought his pigs and leased the land, fed the pigs with food he hauled away from restaurants and Camp Pendleton and made a lot of money from selling his pigs.

At one time an ice cream company had a major problem with an ammonia leak which contaminated their ice cream; it was edible but not suited for human consumption. The company contracted with Arie to deliver 26 semi-trailers full of ice cream. Arie hired some kids to off-load the ice cream from all the pallets lined up in the warehouse and Arie’s pigs had lots of ice cream sundaes. Here, again, Arie made money

very instant it hit. I was amused. This was really cool. I'd never seen anything like that before, but then again I'd never spat on my own vehicle before either.

Well, then, how hard was this ice, I wondered? Any doctor, EMT, nurse, or person with an ounce of common sense would have been dragging me by the collar towards the door. But my "common" sense was evaporating rapidly and a doomed curiosity had taken its place. Remember, I was only 20 feet from the door of my own warm home. And I was being whipped every second by a -65 below zero hard wind in nowwet clothing.

I'd put my glove back on, thankfully, because for some reason it seemed to belong there. But once again I pulled it off so I could use my thumbnail to scrape at this seemingly solid spit. I damned near broke my thumbnail scraping at it. It was as solid as the steel of my hood. Amazing!

I looked around for a better scraper. I finally found about a two-foot section of 1x4 board

leaning against a nearby tree. Slowly, drunkenly, I stumbled over to it and--it seemed--had to kick it much harder than I did the splitting maul to free it. But I did, and triumphantly carried it back to the truck. With all the strength I had-and remember, I was about 25 years old then, in full health, I could not scrape, beat, or hammer that damned glob off my truck.

I dropped the board where I stood, said, "Huh, how about that?" and then lurched into the house. I could have just as easily decided to walk to Dairy Queen for a milkshake, and might have too if there had been one near.

My wife and kids undressed me as soon as the zippers and ties thawed out. I woke up under thick blankets on the living room couch, the house was toasty warm, and I remember my step-daughter yelling at my wife, "Hey! He's not dead after all!" That sounded encouraging.

The house remained warm for the rest of the three-day blizzard. I kept enough wood in to

When Canada Nearly Became Part of the U.S.

We’ve all heard it before. Why not make some or all of the Canadian provinces U.S. states? There are a good many Canadians in the western provinces, who would like to see that happen. Of course, most other Canadians might have another opinion on the subject. But, Canada becoming part of the U.S. nearly happened.

Back in 1775, when Canada was under Britain’s control, troops of the American Continental Army made abortive attempts at capturing Montreal and Quebec. The

the new year’s season, the ALD system has been installed in both of its performance halls, allowing the hearing-impaired to fully enjoy the arts. “We are so pleased to be able to offer this service to our patrons,” said Jerry Van Leeuwen, executive director of The Center. “Our mission is to bring people together to discover, create and celebrate the arts, and this new system helps us achieve that goal.” The Center is located at 340 N. Escondido Blvd., Escondido. The Box Office Number is 800.988.4253, or visit the website for information about programs for this season at www.artcenter.org.

The Center is Offering Free Workshops to Help Teachers Incorporate Arts Into Classrooms – Local teachers are invited to attend two FREE workshops to explore how to incorporate the Theatrical and Visual Arts into their elementary or middle school classrooms. The Education Department of The Center (California Center for the Arts, Escondido) will be hosting the workshops from 4:30-6:30pm on Monday, January 13. The workshops will run about 50 minutes in length and will repeat so that educators have the opportunity to attend both subjects if desired. “Enhancing Your Classroom with Drama” and “Enhancing Your Classroom with Digital Photography” will each run from 4:30-5:20pm and then repeat at 5:30-6:20pm. The lessons and strategies discussed connect to and support Common Core standards. Led by the Center’s Teaching Artists, the workshops are not about teaching the arts but rather using the arts to teach and reinforce other subject matter in the curriculum. The sessions will be held in Studio 2

Revolutionary War broke out in April 1775, and, in an attempt to deter the British from a northern attack, Gen. George Washington sent forces north to capture Canada’s cities of Montreal and Quebec.

An army headed by Gen. Richard Montgomery temporally captured Montreal on Nov. 13, 1775. In early December, Montgomery joined another American force headed by Gen. Benedict Arnold. Arnold’s army had endured an arduous trek through the New England wilderness to meet up with Montgomery’s army.

The speculation of Washington was that French-speaking Catholics in Montreal and Quebec would rise up against the British, which had taken their province away from the French in 1760, following the French & Indian War. However, most tensions caused by the British control had been eased by the passage of the Quebec Act of 1774, which restored land and many civil rights to the Canadians (an act which had been condemned by the thirteen rebelling American colonies). The majority of Quebec's French inhabitants chose not to play an active role in helping the

capture of Quebec, but the odds fell against Montgomery and Arnold when last-minute British army reinforcements arrived, bolstering Governor Carleton’s militia.

The weather seemingly was in the favor of Montgomery and Arnold. The Americans attacked Quebec in a blinding snowstorm. Montgomery split his forces with Arnold. What happened next most likely was a key event that prevented the U.S. from successfully taking Canada away from Great Britain. Montgomery and Arnold’s plan was to use the snowstorm as a

way to conceal their movements. They would attack from separate directions, converging in the lower city before scaling the high walls that protected the upper Quebec city. But, before the walls were scaled, General Montgomery was killed by cannon fire, causing his army to retreat. Despite Arnold’s successful penetration further into the lower city, he was injured, leaving his second-in-command to continue leading the assault. Before they could scale the walls, they were trapped by the British where Ethan Allen and some 400 Americans, along with a number of Canadian volunteers, were forced to surrender.

Arnold and the remainder of his force escaped back south across the river. General Carlton and his Quebec militia suffered only minor casualties. Arnold and the remaining American force maintained an ineffectual blockade of the city until spring 1776, but retreated when more British reinforcements arrived.

Allen spent the next year imprisoned aboard ship before he was released in British-held New York City. He, again, resumed an active role in the revolutionary cause.

The Canadian defeat was the first major setback in the young life of the American Continental Army.

Before the abortive attempt at capturing the Canadian cities of Montreal and Quebec, the Americans attempted to solidifiy their northern defenses by capturing a British fort. Ever cognizant of the threat from the British coming down from Canada, General Washington sent Generals Ethan Allen and Benedict Arnold to northern New York to attack Fort Ticonderoga.

Ticonderoga was in a strategic location near Lake Champlain in the Adironacks mountains between Lake George and Albany. While the 3,000-man American colonists were outnumbered by the 7,000 British and Hessian (German) troops, Allen and Arnold were successful in capturing the fort and, more importantly, its cannons. The heavy artillery was moved south to Boston where the cannons were needed to drive the British from the city. Movement of the heavy cannons was extremely difficult and dangerous through the heavy forested wilderness, with many Bostonians doubting the artillery would arrive in time to force the British from Boston Harbor.

A Duesenberg In Your Living Room?

It could happen.

Former Director of Engineering for Leggett & Platt Automotive Group, Louis Chenot spent 10 years and over 20,000 hours building the 6000 individual parts needed to make a 1/6 scale 1932 Duesenberg SJ dual-cowl Phaeton. The last full-size Duesenberg produced in 1937 was number J588. This one is number J589, making it the last Duesenberg and certainly one of the most unusual. You can see this engineering marvel at The Miniature Engineering Craftsmanship Museum located at 3190 Lionshead Avenue, Carlsbad, actually sits atop what used to be the old Carlsbad Raceway drag strip. It is open Monday, Tuesday, Friday and Saturday from 9 to 4. Admission is free. See www.CraftsmanshipMuseum.com

In December 2013 the Joe Martin Foundaton had the singular good fortune to be able to acquire this world-class model for permanent display.

The non-profit Joe Martin Foundation has selected Louis Chenot as "Metalworking Craftsman of the Decade" award winner for 2011. The Foundation finalized an arrangement to acquire one of the finest pieces of miniature engineering ever produced and has now arranged to place the model, on loan, to the The Miniature Engineering Craftsmanship Museum in Carlsbad.

We don’t cover a lot of sports here in The Paper but we’d be remiss if we didn’t tip our hat to the late and great Jerry Coleman, our voice of the Padres for years. Beloved by many for his play-by-play, he was equally loved for his dedication to his nation, serving in two wars (WWII and Korea) as a pilot, seeing combat on multiple occasions. He gladly would interrupt his highly successful career as a professional baseball player to serve his nation and he was most proud of his family, being a Marine, and the game of baseball, in that order. If you ever wanted a role model for your sons and grandsons to emulate, Jerry Coleman is the ideal example. Jerry Coleman, gone at age 89. Rest in Peace.

I may have to buy me some bib overalls, a straw hat and some clod-hoppers (midwesterners will know what they are) so I fit in to the dress code . . . and I reckon the food will be mighty fine. Do you think Arie will feature roast pork?

That’s an example of how to become successful.

He did this for 28 years; but, all good things must end eventually. Developers bought the leased land and will take over February 1st so Arie has arranged to sell all of his pigs, somewhere between 10,000 and 12,000 of them. And to wind down the business and celebrate, he’s holding a big party in Ontario. Anyone and everyone who was ever associated with Arie’s Pig Farm will be attending. Evelyn and I have been invited.

I’ve never been invited to a Pig Farm Party before. I’m not much of a party goer and I’m not fond of pig farms . . . but I wouldn’t be too surprised if we wind up going. Arie de Jong, when he throws a party . . . throws a party! And he does it right!

augment, and eventually override the furnace. There were hours at a time when it didn't even kick on.

This was only the beginning of my madcap adventures during the Blizzard of '78, one which still resides in the weather history books. I eventually got an official plaque from the Mayor and the City of Indianapolis for helping them out as a semi-deputized dork who just happened to own one of the few four-wheel-drive trucks in the city during those ancient years. But I digress.

The point is, I still can't tell you if spit will freeze in midair with -65 F. temps. Didn't have my glasses on and was somewhat mentally unprepared for the experiment at the time. But you can bet your boots that it will freeze instantly--and I mean INSTANTLY--on contact with metal. Jump ahead over thirty years now ...

A couple of years ago, I needed firewood for my house and

wife. (Not to mention me, too!) My new house and my new wife, but the need was just as

pressing. No, the wind chill factor was not a savage -25 F. It was a balmy -20 F.

Cutting firewood is hard work. I was warm while beginning to do it. BUT--

Remember what I said about young men learning to become old men? I peeled off layers of clothing while working, always staying just a bit chilly. I worked my butt off out in the woods, and was never really comfortable. But I never warmed enough to begin sweating.

Some things are hard to remember. But once you do, you will never forget them. Your life can depend on this.

The first discussion will be on “Smile” by award-winning cartoonist, Raina Telgemeier. Copies of the book will be available for checkout at the Children’s Desk. Telgemeier’s autobiographical graphic novel chronicles her intense experience with dental surgeries and orthodontics, as well as the complexities of adolescence. Readers will wholeheartedly relate to this touching coming-of-age story. Nataraj noted that, “book clubs provide a wonderful space for young

from this pump station, and in conjunction with the water already processed through our Mission Basin Groundwater Purification Facility, we are now able to provide 15 to 20 percent of our City’s own potable water supply. To have this sizable an amount of reliable, yearround water is a rare occurrence in San Diego County where natural groundwater supplies are limited. The system improvements that were installed into the City of Oceanside’s facility were made possible through a partnership with the Bureau of Reclamation. Now that the City of Oceanside is more independent from outside water sources, it allows us to free up the precious supplies of imported water to other cities in the San Diego County region.

As representatives of “the working press,” we’ll be attending the 2014 CES (Consumer Electronic Show) in Las Vegas for the third year in a row. It’s the world’s largest consumer technology exhibition. We’ll be back in town the day “The Paper” hits the streets on January 9. By then most folks will have already been exposed to some of the new technologies we’ll be seeing at CES through TV, newspapers and the Internet.

We arrive three days before the official CES opening to attend the conferences, tours, cocktail parties and other wonderful events reserved for we elitists representing the press, academia, and industry analysts. We get the “Rock Star” treatment until the show opens and then its every man for himself.

New Year, New Goals

2014 is here and goals for the New Year are taking shape. The legislative session resumed last week, and to returned legislators Sacramento with new ideas, plans to resurrect controversial policies, and hope for a successful year.

My priority for the New Year is to restore prosperity in California, especially economic and educational prosperity.

California has been ranked one of the worst states in which to do business, maintains high unemployment, high sales taxes, and high gas taxes. The legislature should limit the economic impact of high taxes and promote business growth, which would support job cre-

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.

twenty-six “tech zones” arranged over nineteen exhibit halls in four major venues. The venues, LVCC (Las Vegas Convention Center), LVH (Las Vegas Hilton), Mandalay Bay 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. Fortunately 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 we saw at CES 2014.

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 non-exhibitor attendees are there for a specific reason, to meet with clients, check out the competition or learn more about specific technologies. There are fifteen basic product categories and

ation and reduce unemployment. California’s education system is also ranked one of the worst in the country. The flaws of our education system have diminished opportunities for graduates. As many career technical education programs have been eliminated, young adults are ill prepared for the workforce.

This year, my goal is to support policies that limit taxes and better prepare the workforce to meet industry needs. A prosperous California depends on better economic and educational policies.

California’s Debt Crisis

Debt at the national, state and local levels has mushroomed in recent decades. Three California cities have sought bankruptcy protection and there are constant rumors that more may soon follow.

Among the problems impacting California cities are the huge debt obligations owed to CalPERS, the state’s public employees’ retirement system. For example, Stockton, one of the bankrupt cities, is paying CalPERS roughly $29 million a year, in addition to payments being made to other creditors.

Despite passage of a socalled “balanced” budget last June, a report by the California Taxpayers Association placed state and local debt at an astounding $443 billion, which amounts to $11,600 for every man, woman and child in the state.

Mac Taylor, the Legislature’s Budget Analyst, recently reported that California’s structural budget deficit has disappeared. While this is good news, the report is based on a shaky economic recovery and temporary taxes. It also ignores California’s huge future debt obligations. As we enter 2014, we should remember that all state programs are based on tax revenues generated by private-sector economic activity. Future state and local spending must be reined in so that the debt burden we have accumulated over the last decades can be addressed along with massive unfunded mandates and liabilities that threaten future prosperity. Only then can we truly begin to celebrate California’s return from the brink of fiscal insolvency.

Pastor Hal Seed New Song Community Church, Oceanside, Is Church Today Relevant, or Irrelevant to You?

A strong argument for staying away from church these days is that what goes on there is boring and irrelevant. You might hear yourself thinking, “They don’t know what’s going on in our world today. The people wear suits, sing old songs, and the preacher talks about things that don’t matter to anyone.” Or, “Only old people go to church anymore. I’m twenty-five, so why should I go?” People who haven’t been to church in a while might be surprised at what’s happening there these days. At the nine congregations of New Song Community Church, a live band (drums, bass, leader guitar and vocals) plays at

Throughout January and February, New Song’s congregations are taking relevance up a notch. Members surveyed their neighbors and asked, “What are the questions you’d really like to ask God?” In a series called, “YOU ASKED FOR IT,” the pastors will answer the most-frequentlyasked questions during the sermon time these next several weeks.

YOU ASKED FOR IT: 1. Why Does God Let Bad Things Happen to Good People? 2. How am I Supposed to Forgive the Person Who Hurt Me so Badly? 3. What’s the Big Deal about Homosexuality and Gay Marriage? 4. Why Should I Pray if God Already Knows What I’m Thinking? 5. A Live Panel Question and Answer with Drs. Hal Seed and Mark Williams

New Song’s congregations meet in three locations: - Across the street from the Mission at 3985 Mission Avenue in Oceanside. - At the Bonsall Community Church at 31505 Old River Rd, Bonsall. - At the Oceanside Regal Theatre at 401 Mission Ave, Oceanside.
