On July 23, 1882, the Crystal Palace Saloon, Tombstone, Arizona, opened its doors. The shining crystal ware and the affable management soon had a monopoly on those prominent citizens from all over town who wanted the best drink coupled with all the pertinent town news dispensed by the fortunate office holders above. The Crystal Palace became the place most frequented by those individuals prominent in the business and social registers of Tombstone.
To have an office on the second floor of this building was tantamount to having the best address in Tombstone. The offices upstairs were crowded with those names now familiar to millions. The front office facing Allen Street was occupied by Virgil W. Earp. Virgil Earp was serving in the dual capacity as Marshal of Tombstone and Deputy United States Marshal. The records reveal that his address in Tombstone was listed as the Office Building Above the Crystal Palace, Fifth and Allen, Tombstone, Arizona Territory.
Since business depended largely, if not entirely on the mines, it was possible at any hour to find the owners and managers in the Crystal Palace indulging themselves with the finest spirits obtainable. Mine officials, gunmen, prospectors, rustlers, lawyers, stage coach bandits, all there.

Brothel in Jerome, AZ. Jennie's Place. It was built in 1898 by Legendary Madam Belgian Jennie Bauters. She became the richest woman in the Arizona territory before she was murdered.
Things inside a covered wagon.
John "Jack" McCall 1852 or 1853 â€“ March 3, 1877), also known as "Crooked Nose Jack" or "Broken Nose Jack", was the murderer of Old West legend Wild Bill Hickok, shooting him from behind while he played poker at Nuttal & Mann's Saloon in Deadwood, Dakota Territory on August 2, 1876.
Fearing for his safety, McCall soon left the area and headed into Wyoming Territory, where he repeatedly bragged about killing Hickok in a "fair" gunfight. The federal court in Yankton, Dakota Territory, declared that McCall should be tried in Yankton for Hickok's murder, and was quickly found guilty. After almost three months in jail, he was hanged on March 1, 1877, aged 24. He was buried in the Sacred Heart Cemetery in Yankton County, South Dakota.

Bill Doolin (1858-1896) founder of the Wild Bunch gang. Died from shotgun blast August 24, 1896, by Deputy U.S. Marshall Heck Thomas in Lawson, Oklahoma Territory. Roamed the Arkansas, Kansas and Oklahoma territory. Was 38 years old when killed.
The cemetery was moved in 1881, when McCall's body was exhumed and found to have the noose still around his neck. McCall was the first person to be executed by federal officials in the Dakota Territory. The killing of Hickok and the capture of McCall is reenacted every summer evening in Deadwood.

Cowboys were paid about ten dollars a week. After a long cattle drive they would often spend the money on drink, prostitutes and gambling in the railroad cowtowns.
The Ghost of Joe Simpson:
This creepy ghost town located in the Death Valley desert is the home of one of the strangest deaths in the history of the Old West.
In 1908, a saloon manager named Joe “Hooch” Simpson murdered the town’s banker.
In retaliation for the murder, he was hung in a lynching by a mob. They buried him, but exhumed his body to pose it for pictures when a L.A. Times reporter came some days later. The locals hung him back up as they had hung him the first time for the photos.
Give Us This Day Our Daily Chuckle This week, a compendium of wit, wisdom and neat stuff you can tell at parties. Enjoy! Gotta Love a Marine!
A former Sergeant in the Marine Corps took a new job as a high school teacher.
Just before the school year started, he injured his back. He was required to wear a plaster cast around the upper part of his body. Fortunately, the cast fit under his shirt and wasn't noticeable.
On the first day of class, he found himself assigned to the toughest students in the school. The smart-aleck punks, having already heard the new teacher was a former Marine, were leery of him and he knew they would be testing his discipline in the classroom.
Ladies (Soiled Doves) Knuckles This RARE set of cast iron Knuckles were used by the ladies of the night. Soiled Doves used many weapons; hide-away guns, knives and knuckles. This set is pictured in the book, “Cowboy Culture, The Last Frontier of American Antiques."

Walking confidently into the rowdy classroom, the new teacher opened the window wide and sat down at his desk. When a strong breeze made his tie flap, he picked up a stapler and stapled the tie to his chest. Dead silence… The rest of the year went very smoothly. Everyone seems to be in such a hurry to scream “prejudice” these days....
A customer asked, "On what aisle can I find the Polish sausage?" The clerk Polish?"
The customer, clearly offended, says, "Yes I am. But let me ask you something. If I had asked for Italian sausage, would you ask me if I was Italian? Or, if I had asked for German Bratwurst, would you ask me if I was German? Or, if I asked for a kosher hot dog would you ask me if I was Jewish? Or, if I had asked for a Taco, would you ask if I was Mexican? Or, if I asked for some Irish whiskey, would you ask if I was Irish?" The clerk answered, "No, I probably wouldn't."
Another token from a brothel. These have become very collectible for those who treasure Western and Frontier memorabilia. A number of women made fortunes by becoming madames; some even became well respected members of society.
The customer then angrily says, "Well then, because I asked for Polish sausage, why would you ask me if I'm Polish?"
The clerk quietly replied, "Because you're in Home Depot." ••••• This is so true! They always ask at the doctor's office why you are there, and you have to answer in front of others what is wrong and sometimes it is embarrassing.
There is nothing worse than a doctor's receptionist who insists you tell her what is wrong with you in a room full of other patients. I know most of us have experienced this, and I love the way this old guy handled it. A 65-year-old man walked into a crowded waiting room and approached the desk.

'Why not, you asked me what was wrong and I told you,' he said.
The Receptionist replied; 'Now you've caused some embarrassment in this room full of people. You should have said there is something wrong with your ear or something and discussed the problem further with the Doctor in private.'
The man replied, 'You shouldn't ask people questions in a roomful of strangers, if the answer could embarrass anyone.’ The man walked out, waited several minutes, and then re-entered. The Receptionist smiled smugly and asked, 'Yes?'
'There's something wrong with my ear,' he stated.
The Receptionist said, 'Yes sir, what are you seeing the Doctor for today?'
The Receptionist nodded approvingly and smiled, knowing he had taken her advice.. 'And what is wrong with your ear, Sir?'

The Attorney at Law
Eventually, the Pony Express had more than 100 stations, 80 riders, and between 400 and 500 horses. The express route was extremely hazardous, but only one mail delivery was ever lost. The service lasted only 19 months until October 24, 1861, when the completion of the Pacific Telegraph line ended the need for its existence.
A California stage coach, ready to hit the road.
The old saloon . . . the gathering place for tired cowboys . . . and the occasional sportin’ ladies.
The wild, wild west was full of colorful characters, colorful places, wild horses and sometimes even wilder people.
But it all came together to build a fantastic story of hard work, sweat, dedication, danger, and, ultimately, accomplishment. That’s what makes us us!
There are, of course, a lot of things within the practice of law that aren’t taught in the text books but learned in real life situations. With John Smyie’s many years in practice, he is able to pass this handy information along to K. C. It’s doubtful that K. C. could have found a better mentor than his grandfather.
Pony Express, 1904. A colorful but short-lived experiment in transporation and communication.
The Pony Express consisted of relays of men riding horses carrying saddlebags of mail across a 2000-mile trail. The service opened officially on April 3, 1860, when riders left simultaneously from St. Joseph, Missouri, and Sacramento, California. The first westbound trip was made in 9 days and 23 hours and the eastbound journey in 11 days and 12 hours. The pony riders Annual Pony Express Re-Ride covered 250 miles in a 24-hour day.
immediately and brought K.C. into the law firm where he primarily practices law in the area of trusts and estate planning.
K. C. Satterlee, Attorney at Law It’s a title he worked hard for. and earned. Attorney at Law.
K. C. Satterlee attended Valley Center public schools, 1st grade through high school. He was always a top student. Pretty good athlete as well, plaing soccer with the Valley Center Hurricanes. They wound up playing in the state cup tournament. Today, when not practicing law, his main hobby is composing computer music which he shares on the web. He attended Palomar college and transferred to UCSD majoring in Philosophy and minoring in computer art (music).
He received a full scholarship to USD Law School because of his outstanding academic performance at UCSD as well as community service work. He continued that stellar academic performance while in college, graduating from UCSD in 2009 and graduating USD Law School in 2012, Cum Laude.
It may have been pre-ordained that he would one day become an attorney. His grandfather is John Smylie, prominent North County attorney who has handled probate work and estate planning for years.
Always having a sharp eye for great talent, John Smylie didn’t have too far to look for a great candidate for his law firm.
Graduating Cum Laude from law school is quite an accomplishment. It proves to the world and your peers that you’re a sharp student and have the necessary discipline to apply yourself to the task. John Smylie recognized this
While John is still active with his law practice and meets regularly with many of his clients, he is beginning to think about the day when he will want to retire. Clearly, he is grooming K. C. for that day. For John, he will have the comfort of knowing he will have a well trained, experienced young attorney to take over most of the practice. For K. C., he will have the comfort of knowing he will one day take over an existing and successful law practice . . . something many attorneys work for 15-20 years to accomplish.
Additionally, K. C., will have dear old mom close to lend a hand. Mom, Trish Satterlee, is a paralegal within the Smylie Law Firm, and K. C.’s aunt, Melinda, is also a paralegal with the firm. And, of course, dear old grandpa will always be available to review any questions K. C. may have.
“It’s a great opportunity,” says KC . . . “I’m doing a lot of trust and estate work and I’m quite familiar with that area. In addition, I just recently had a 40 page contract to analyze and I found I had no difficulty with that . . . but I knew if I had any questions or difficulty I could call grandpa (John Smylie) and he’d help me out. In fact, I did nothave to call upon him for help . . . so that is an area I’m becoming quite comfortable in as well.” KC always was a top student, elementary, high school, college, and law school.
He graduated from high school in 2004, attended Palomar for two years, then on to UCSD; it was around 2008 when he decided he wanted to pursue the study of law (and he was nudged in that direction by grandpa Smylie, who clearly saw an outstanding mind and great future attorney.) It has happened and both KC, the staff, and John Smylie are delighted.

The waiting room erupted in laughter...
Mess with seniors, and you're going to lose. ••••• A little humor and nostalgia for everybody. SLOW FOOD
Someone asked the other day, 'What was your favorite fast food when you were growing up?'
'We didn't have fast food when I was growing up,' I informed him. 'All the food was slow.' 'C'mon, seriously. Where did you eat?' 'It was a place called Home,'’ I explained. 'Mom cooked every day and when Dad got home from work, we sat down together at the dining room table, and if I didn't like what she put on my plate I was allowed to sit there until I did like it.'
By this time, the kid was laughing so hard I was afraid he was going to suffer serious internal damage, so I didn't tell him the part about how I had to have permission to leave the table. But here are some other things I would have told him about my childhood if I figured his system could have handled it : Some parents NEVER owned their own house, never wore Levis, never set foot on a golf course, never traveled out of the country or had a credit card. In their later years they had something called a revolving charge card. The card was good only at Sears Roebuck. Or maybe it was Sears & Roebuck. Either way, there is no Roebuck anymore. Maybe he died.
My parents never drove me to soccer practice. This was mostly because we never had heard of soccer. I had a bicycle that weighed probably 50 pounds, and only had one speed, (slow) We didn't have a television in our house until I was 9. It was, of course, black and white, and the station went off the air at midnight, after playing the national anthem and a poem about God; it came back on the air at about 6 a.m. And there was usually a locally produced news and farm show on, featuring local people. I was 21 before I tasted my first pizza, it was called 'pizza pie.'

On Tuesday, June 9, Escondido Police received multiple 911 calls reporting a man was shot on Gamble St. near El Norte Pkwy. Officers arrived on scene and found an adult male victim with multiple gunshot wounds.
The victim, identified as Steven LaRussa, 21, of Fallbrook was transported to a local hospital but later died of his injuries. Early indications are that this was not a random act of violence, but Larussa and the suspects had some unknown past history. An investigation by the Escondido Crimes of Violence and Gang Units has led to the arrest of Juan Maldonado, 18 and Jessica EspinozaContreras, 19, both from Escondido, for their involvement in the shooting death of LaRussa. On June 11, Maldonado and EspinozaContreras were booked into Vista Detention Facility for murder.
The investigation is continuing. Anyone with additional information is asked to contact Escondido Police Detective John O’Donnell, at 760-8394756 or Detective Nick Rodelo at 760-839-4422.

Very impressive police work by the Escondido Police Department. Kudos go for Impressive Police Work to Escondido Police Detectives John O’Donnell, and Detective Nick Rodelo.
What turned out to be a fatal shooting on Tuesday, June 9th, wound up with arrests of two suspects on Thurday, June 11th. Mighty quick police work. It’s comforting to know we have cops that know their job and can identify and arrest suspects so quickly.

Downtown Campus of Palomar Hospital to Close?
It appears to be a matter of short time before the board of directors for the Palomar Health District votes to close the downtown campus of Palomar Hospital. The facility, located between Grand Avenue and Valley Parkway is losing $20 million per year, according to Palomar Hospital officials. Presently, the facility is handling labor and delivery, rehabilitation and behavioral health departments, as well as a standby emergency room.
Those departments would be closed and moved to the new Palomar Medical Center on Citricado Parkway as well as to Pomerado Hospital in Poway, if board members vote as expected.
Kenneth Lounsbery, co-leader of the campaign for Proposition BB, the $496 million referendum in 2004 that helped pay for the nearly $1 billion new hospital, said, “I clearly remember making an ironclad promise to the voters that the downtown campus of the hospital would be retained as a vital part of the operation.

Well, we located Pho’Lee - a little restaurant hidden away in a shopping center on East Valley Parkway (1700 E. Valley Parkway, Escondido).

It’s a family run busines by the Lee and Le’ family. Michael (Le’, the godfather’s son), Andrew, Alex, Albert and Alan all combine to make it a very pleasant and tasty dining experience.
It’s another one of those cases where you have to find the restaurant . . . or have someone tell you about it . . . because it does not have an imposing exterior presence. Once inside, however, you’ll find a cozy little hideaway, spotlessly clean, and very friendly service. They’ve only been open two months but seem to have most of the basics worked out.

I never had a telephone in my room. The only phone in the house was in the living room and it was on a party line. Before you could dial, you had to listen and make sure some people you didn't know weren't already using the line. Pizzas were not delivered to our home but milk was. All newspapers were delivered by boys and all boys delivered newspapers -I delivered a newspaper, 7 days a week. It cost 7 cents a paper, of which I got to keep 2 cents. I had to get up at 6AM every morning. On Saturday, I had to collect the 49 cents from my customers. My favorite customers were the ones who gave me 50 cents and told me to keep the change. My least favorite customers were the ones who seemed to never be home on collection day. There were no movie ratings because all movies were responsibly produced for
everyone to enjoy viewing, without profanity or violence or most anything offensive.

Puppy Mill Confrontation?
First I want to thank you for the time you spent speaking with both my mother, Geri, and myself on the phone a few weeks ago. I retrieved the copy of “The Paper” that you had left out for me, and the information in your article on Puppy Mill Bans was extremely helpful for my friend, Tonya Lindsay.
To refresh your memory, Tonya was here visiting me from Canada when she was arrested by a pet store owner for what he is calling “battery.” She had placed a sticker in his pet shop (“Breeders Kill Shelter Dogs’ Chances – Please Don’t Shop, Adopt”) then had to push her way past him to exit the store as he blocked her path. He happens to be a large man, but I guess she somehow intimidated him. But, what is even more ridiculous than the charge of battery is the fact that the San Diego District
Attorney is prosecuting the case.
Tonya is expected to return to the U.S. from her home in Anglemont, British Columbia, July 13th for her arraignment. Neither of us thought that the D.A.’s office would proceed on this case. Now we are trying to contact as many people as we can to assist us in convincing them otherwise. Your article provided a wealth of information, and we are diligently making contacts with the animal-rights teams mentioned in your article. Because of all of the research you put into this article, I wonder if you may have a direct route to someone who can really help us to put pressure on the D.A.’s office. Any assistance you can provide would be greatly appreciated. I am so grateful to you for writing this important article. Sincerely,

Water Worries Continue
As we enter the summer months, state-mandated water cuts resulting from the ongoing drought are starting to take hold. In the 75th Assembly District, local water agencies have been ordered to make cuts as high as 36%. A drive up I-15 or a tour of Valley Center will show the huge hit agriculture is already taking, and the summer has barely begun. The water bond passed in November included $2.7 billion for water projects. In order to get those projects moving, legislation was introduced earlier this year that would have had a significant impact on longterm water availability in California. By streamlining the environmental review process, Assembly Bills 311 (James Gallagher, R - Nicolaus) and 956 (Travis Allen, R – Huntington Beach) would have fast-tracked water recycling projects and speeded construction for badly-needed storage facilities, including the Sites

In addition, Assembly Bill 397 (Devon Mathis, R - Visalia) would have stopped future funding for high-speed rail and allowed diversion of those funds to water-related projects. Despite the urgency, all three bills died in their respective committees this spring over environmental concerns. Despite this setback, the Governor indicated he may use executive authority to speed water projects by removing or streamlining environmental restrictions that are delaying infrastructure upgrades that would ensure California’s future water needs can be met.
Though weather forecasters are talking about a developing El Niño, we have no idea when this drought will end and future droughts are certain. Recycling, desalination, storage reservoirs, reliable groundwater and sensible environmental regulations – all must be part of a comprehensive solution guaranteeing a secure water supply for all Californians.

Recently, The U-T’s Dan McSwain wrote a brilliant essay which pointed out Palomar Medical Center has been left with a mountain of debt and little cash.
OUTGOING CEO LEAVES DEBT, LITTLE CASH FOR PALOMAR HEALTH http://www.utsandiego.com/ne ws/2014/jun/06/tp-web-hedherey/
In one of our cover stories that exposed Covert we asked the questions, “If a small weekly newspaper like The Paper can uncover all of the sordid details of Mike Covert’s past, how is it that the Palomar Medical Center’s Board of Directors and its supposedly professional executive search firms were unable to do so?” We were critical of the board for having hired Covert in the first place.
It is interesting to note that we had been delivering about 500 papers to Palomar Medical Center up until the day after our expose’ on Covert was published.
The next day The Paper was persona non grata on hospital propery and has not been allowed to be distributed at the hospital since. Imagine that.
Now comes news that, contrary to promises made to keep a

the east campus breaks the faith with the representations I made to voters.” Palomar Health Distirct Has Heavy Debt, Little Cash
In a column by the U-T’s Dan McSwain, he points out that former CEO Michael Covert made a lot of promises, a lot of plans, a lot of commitments . . and, as a result, he has left the district with a heavy cash debt and very little cash. These facts are likely behind the apparently imminent decision to transfer operations from the downtown campus of Palomar Medical Center to the new Palomar Hospital west of town.

Historically Speaking by Tom Morrow
In his column, McSwain points out, “Palomar Health’s hospitals and clinics run at a loss; operating margin was negative 4.2 percent in the first half of fiscal year 2014, an improvement from minus 12.2 percent in the same period in 2013. Worse, the district has cash problems. While improving, it’s still violating a bond covenant to keep enough cash for 80 days.”
McSwain goes on to say: “Maybe Covert has sacrificed profit to move upscale? Nope; 63 percent of Palomar’s patients (above the national average) are on Medi-Cal or Medicare, government programs with downward profitability trajectories. This suggests that well-heeled patients are driving past Palomar’s hospitals in Escondido and Poway to get their new knees, tummy tucks and pricey nonelective surgeries at competing hospitals on the coast.”

Act.” The money wasn’t supposed to be paid until 1945, but crushing economic pressures of the Great Depression pushed the out-of-work veterans to demand the money early. Organizers called it the “Bonus Expeditionary Force Marchers,” but the media called it the “Bonus Army.”
March of the Bonus Army
The burning of Washington, D.C., by the British Army during the War of 1812, wasn’t the only time our nation’s capital city was invaded. It happened the spring and summer of 1932, when some 17,000 World War I veterans marched on the city, demanding a cash redemption of their bonus certificates, which had been issued to World War I veterans. With their families, a total of 43,000 set up a make-shift encampments of tents and temporary shacks, resolving not to leave until the government made good on a 1924 “World War Adjusted Compensation
The U.S. Attorney General ordered the veterans removed from all government property. When the veterans resisted, shots were fired and two were killed. President Herbert Hoover then ordered the Army to clear the veterans' campsite. Army Chief of Staff, Gen. Douglas MacArthur, commanded the infantry and cavalry units, which was supported by six tanks. The tanks were commanded by Maj. George S. Patton. The Bonus Marchers, believing the troops were marching in their honor, cheered the troops until Patton ordered the cavalry to charge them -- an action which prompted the spectators to yell, "Shame! Shame!"
The Bonus Army marchers with their wives and children were driven out, and their shelters burned. The veterans fled across the Anacostia River to

No One Can Plan for Cancer – In the fall of 2004, Russ was planning a surfing trip to Fiji. He wound up in his doctor’s office instead with a rash, leg pain, fevers, and weight loss. After a blood test revealed an extremely low white blood cell count, a bone marrow biopsy confirmed a
diagnosis of acute myeloid leukemia (AML). Chemotherapy, radiation, and a bone marrow transplant followed, It was a tough year, but after finishing treatment in July 2005, Russ achieved remission. He finally made it to Fiji and now swims four times a week. Most adult AML patients’ stories don’t have a happy ending. Though progress is being made, the survival rate today for all AML cases is just more than 25%. LLS’ Beat AML initiative aims to change that and needs your help. $213,923 of the $300,000 goal has been raised and the balance is needed to fully fund this initiative and help create more positive outcomes like Russ.

All Animals Matter – At the San Diego Humane Society it is believed that all animals matter. Whether furry, scaled, feathered, domestic, or wild, they’re committed to being the safety net when they need help. That’s why the recent merger with Project Wildlife is so important, because it expanded the scope of the Society’s mission in a very impactful way. Last year along, Project Wildlife helped 9,510 sick, injured or orphaned wildlife animals. That’s nearly 10,000 local raccoons, opossums, hummingbirds, owls, hawks, and other wild animals that found the refuge and rehabilitation they needed at Project Wildlife. As the only local emergency trauma center for these wild animals, Project Wildlife provides a crucial service to the San Diego region. Now that Project Wildlife is a program of San Diego Humane Society, they are positioned to amplify this incredible work by pairing it with the services for domestic animals. They have fully integrated expertise and resources, which means they are providing stronger, more comprehensive care for all vulnerable animals in our communities, regardless of species or need. Thank you for helping San Diego Humane Society expand their reach in such a momentous way.

their largest camp, known as “Hooverville,” when President Hoover ordered the assault stopped. However MacArthur, feeling the Bonus March was an attempt to overthrow the U.S. government, ignored the President and ordered a new attack. Fifty-five veterans were injured and 135 arrested.
Maj. Dwight D. Eisenhower, later our 34th President, served as one of MacArthur's junior aides. Believing it wrong for the Army's highest-ranking officer to lead an action against fellow veterans, Ike strongly advised MacArthur against taking any public role: "I told that dumb son-of-a-bitch not to go down there," he said later.
A decorated hero from the war, who had saved Patton's life during the war, approached him the day after the Army’s action to sway him. Rather than listen to the man whom Patton had personally decorated for his bravery under fire, was coldly rejected, saying "I do not know this man.” The Bonus Army incident proved disastrous for Hoover's chances at re-election; he lost the 1932 election in a landslide to Franklin D. Roosevelt. In May 1933, a second demon-
stration was organized. Roosevelt provided the marchers with a campsite in Virginia, with three meals a day. Roosevelt arranged for his wife Eleanor to visit the site unaccompanied, but the most she could offer was a promise of jobs in the newly created Civilian Conservation Corps. One veteran commented: "Hoover sent the army, Roosevelt sent his wife." In 1936, at the height of the Depression, Congress overrode President Franklin D. Roosevelt's veto and paid the veterans their bonus years.

These two beauties are an energetic, friendly duo who have spent most of their lives on a ranch with plenty of space to run and play. Because of the freedom in their previous home, Booker and Tilda will do best in a similar environment on a ranch or farm where they can be put to work! Because they tend to chase cats and other small animals, they would do best in a home without them. If you love the great outdoors as much as Booker and Tilda, they would love to be your little helpers all day long and spend their evenings safe indoors.

Pastor Sam Brumit, Mission 316, San Marcos Is God there when it hurts?
A good friend of mine, Liz Ryerson, wrote these grace filled words; I think they might apply to many of us:
“A few months ago I was going through something very, very hard. Many people were loving me, encouraging me and praying for me. During that time, as tears rolled down my cheeks, someone whispered truth into my ear, "God IS faithful. He has to be. He is God. God cannot not be faithful. It's one of his attributes. So even in this, God is here. Right in the very middle of this." Today I had the chance to be reminded of this. And then God put it on my heart that maybe
It is easy, when we are going through tough seasons in our lives, to blame God or think that He doesn’t care about our lives. It’s ironic that when something good happens we say things like “I was lucky” but when the bad comes we think “Where was God when I needed Him?”
The truth is that bad things do happen to good people. And the opposite is true as well. Everyone in life faces challenges and trials. They vary in size and proportion, but storms come. And when they do, we can be assured that God is working. He doesn’t cause the storm, but He does use it in our lives to develop character. Still, it is not easy. I’ve heard it said “God doesn’t give you more than you can handle.” I often then think “I wish He didn’t trust me so much”! Whatever you are going through in life, remember God loves you. He really does. Give your life over to Him and trust Him with it. He is trustworthy and faithful. _____________________________ We’d love to have you be our guest at Mission 316 in San Marcos. We meet at 111 Richmar Avenue in San Marcos at 9:45AM on Sunday.

San Marcos • Mayor Jim Desmond
San Marcos has one of the lowest crime rates in North County
San Marcos continues to be one of the safest cities in San Diego County, and in 2014 the community continued to see a drop in crime rates.
By embracing information led policing, deputies have been able to work smarter and utilize resources more efficiently. By investing in our community and working with schools and Mental Health Systems to assist youth, the Community Oriented Policing Unit developed the RESPECT mentorship program aimed at helping our most at-risk teens. These efforts are paying off. Over the past year, Part 1 crime in San Marcos dropped by nearly 10%. These crimes include murder, assault, robbery, burglary and theft of motor vehicles and high-value property.
The fight against crime never goes away, and the City remains committed to infusing innovative crime-fighting solutions into its longterm plan and becoming safer every year. Escondido • Mayor Sam Abed

Ordinarily, such operating challenges can be manageable. But Palomar is hobbled by debt.”
Summing up, McSwain said: “The numbers suggest this dire situation arose from construction of the Escondido hospital, which opened in 2012. The text of Proposition BB in 2004 described a $531 million hospital with 453 beds. Covert delivered a Palomar Medical Center costing $956 million with 288 beds, with room to expand to 390. Meanwhile, Sharp Healthcare built its Kearny Mesa hospital tower for $195 million with 334 beds.
Covert may be a dazzling CEO, but his successor faces some scary numbers.”
His successor, current CEO Bob Hemker, would likely agree. He has a major financial hurdle and is being forced to deal with it as best he can. The San Marcos City Council voted Friday to extend until April a ban on new retail pet shops that sell commerciallybred pets. The 4-0 vote keeps in place a

temporary moratorium passed two months ago that was set to expire Saturday.
The extension will allow the city to research the issue and decide whether to make the ban permanent. When the temporary ban expires next April, the council could opt to extend it another year.
San Marcos is the latest North County community wrestling with how or whether to regulate retail pet shops that sell dogs raised in what animalrights advocates call “puppy mills.” The controversial issue landed before the San Marcos council roughly a month after businessman David Salinas opened Mini Toy Puppies, a retail pet shop, in a shopping center off

Microsoft Windows 10, why? Part 1 of 2
Microsoft keeps pestering users with pop-up requests to make “reservations” for an “upgrade” to Win 10. Is there some advantage to doing this? The answer is absolutely not. The free upgrade is good through July of next year and no doubt will be extended indefinitely for all Win 7 and 8 users. If you have a Win 7 PC you may never wish to “upgrade” to Windows 10 and certainly not for at least a year. Even Widows 8/8.1 users are well advised to wait a few months until Microsoft works the bugs out. The Win 10 “upgrade” is a one-way-street. Once you do it there is no going back.
Microsoft’s Windows 10 “reservation” is a “social engineering.” strategy. The idea is to get you to think there is some great

hospital presence in downtown Escondido, that the downtown campus will likely be closed.
This is another example of the bind that placing our trust in a man like Mike Covert caused financial hardship to the city. We totally understand the position taken by current president and CEO, Bob Hemker. Covert left us all but broke and we are losing $20 million per year. We have to stop the bleeding. I reluctantly agree with staff ’s recommendation and the likely vote upcoming by the new board of directors. Still, had it not been for Mike Covert and his grandiose plans and his own personal agenda . .....

advantage in making a “reservation.” It conveys the impression that there will be high demand for Win 10 and that it will be in short supply. This feeds the natural human aversion to being left out. If they can get you to make a “reservation,” you are sure to show up on day one to grab your share. The whole idea is to create a feeding frenzy so they can boast that Win 10 is a smashing success. It’s a trick they picked up from Apple. When Apple releases a new product, they take “reservations.” Apple then creates an artificial shortage to give the impression that demand for their new product has exceeded their wildest dreams. It’s that “jump on the bandwagon” mentality that Microsoft is trying to create. While these strategies may seem a tad manipulative or even sinister they’ve been widely used in commerce ever since Eve marketed the very first Apple to a skeptical user, Adam.

jail on suspicion of murder in the death of Christopher Gillette.
So why is Microsoft trying so hard to promote a product that it is giving away? You can’t make money giving stuff away. Is the free Win 10 upgrade Microsoft’s way of apologizing for Win 8? It’s true that Win 10 is basically Win 8 with a Win 7 style desktop. Win 10 could and probably should have been released as a free upgrade to Win 8 (like Win 8.1). The obvious reason that Win 10 is not being released as Win 8.2 is that Microsoft is trying to dis-
Microsoft’s marketing strategies are aimed at only half the Worlds PC users, the “dumb half.” That would be the small business and home users who buy PCs in retail stores. The “smart half” are corporations that buy their PCs direct and employ IT (Information Technology) professionals who are far to savvy to pay attention to Microsoft’s marketing drivel. Microsoft controls the distribution of OS so “dumb half” buyers find only PCs with Microsoft’s newest OS in stores (Win 8.1 today). Corporations
Board Chairman John Osborne said in a prepared press release: “The board feels the initiative is the first step in a project that will improve the quality of life in Carlsbad, create new jobs in Carlsbad, and provide residents of Carlsbad with additional shopping and dining choices.”
The initiative outlines a specific plan for 203 acres on the south shore of Agua Hedionda Lagoon, north of Cannon Road, east of Interstate 5 and west of El Camino Real. The plan calls for agriculture and public trails on the eastern 85 percent of the land, and a shopping center on the 15 percent of the land along the freeway. Arrest in San Marcos of La Mesa Murder Suspect
Two weeks ago La Mesa Police arrested a 37-year-old man in San Marcos for the May shooting death of a 33-year-old man in La Mesa.
Samuel Godinez, of Lemon Grove, was arrested on Linda Vista Drive near South Rancho Sante Fe Road in San Marcos on May 27 about 9:45 a.m., said La Mesa police Lt. Angela DeSarro. He was booked into
can order PCs with any OS they choose.
Corporations jumped on Win XP in the early 2000s, ignored Vista (2007-2009) and began upgrading to Win 7 in late 2009. They ignored Win 8 (2012-present) and will ignore 2010 and continue to buy Win 7 PCs. If you want to join the “smart half” you can buy new Win 7 notebooks and desktops here at The Computer Factory. Microsoft has “bet the farm” on Win 10. Changing technology has clouded their future and they need to change their business plan. Next week we’ll explore how Microsoft is trying to become an Apple clone.
Rancho Bernardo Area Seeing More “Hot Prowl” Burglaries
Residences in the 4S Ranch area have reported three early morning burglaries within a 10- day period of time, all while the occupants were home. Sheriff’s deputies are investigating. On June 1st, the first "hot prowl" burglary was reported, the most recent was last Wednesday. All three occurred between 1 a.m. and 3 a.m.
Samuel Godinez, suspect in murder
The killing was reported on May 16 when 911 was called and received a report of a man being shot in a home on El Paso Street near Lake Murray Boulevard. Officers arrived and found the body of Christopher Gillette, dead from an apparent gunshot wound.
The department delayed releasing information about the arrest because detectives were still working with the District Attorney's Office to collect enough evidence needed for prosecuting the case. Gillette had been living at the El Paso Street address at times.
The homes are in the 16900 block of Silver Pine Way, near Silver Crest Lane, and in the 17000 block of Garden Walk Way, near Cherry Blossom Lane. In the Wednesday burglary, occupants heard someone in residence. In the earlier two, residents did not discover thefts until later, he said.

The losses included cash and sunglasses. No one was injured.
Entry was made through unlocked doors. In one case, a ladder was used to reach a secondstory door. The Sheriff's Department is encouraging anyone with information to call the department's non-emergency line at (858) 5655200, or Crime Stoppers anonymously at (888) 580-8477. Rewards are available.

SUMMARY OF ORDINANCE INTRODUCED/ ADOPTED
ORDINANCE NO. 2015-1410
AN URGENCY ORDINANCE OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF SAN MARCOS, CALIFORNIA, EXTENDING THE TEMPORARY MORATORIUM ON THE ESTABLISHMENT OF RETAIL PET STORES IN THE CITY OF SAN MARCOS
WHEREAS, on April 28, 2015, the City Council adopted interim urgency Ordinance No. 2015-1408 imposing a temporary moratorium on the establishment of retail pet stores in the City of San Marcos for a period of 45 days, which temporary moratorium is scheduled to expire on June 13, 2015; and
WHEREAS, California Government Code Section 65858 authorizes local agencies, including charter cities, to adopt, after a noticed public hearing, an ordinance to extend an interim ordinance prohibiting any uses that may be in conflict with a contemplated general plan, specific plan or zoning proposal that the legislative body, planning commission or planning department is considering, studying or intends to study within a reasonable time, if the extension ordinance contains legislative findings that retail pet stores engaged in the sale of dogs, cats and/or rabbits pose a threat to the public welfare of animals, residents and businesses, and the approval of any permit or other applicable license or entitlement for use would result in the threat to the public welfare of animals, residents and/or businesses; and WHEREAS, the purpose of this urgency Ordinance is to extend the moratorium on the establishment of retail pet stores established under interim urgency Ordinance No. 20151408 to continue to protect against the current and immediate threats retail pet stores pose to the public welfare of animals, residents and/or businesses and the preservation of peace within the City’s jurisdictional boundaries; and WHEREAS, the San Marcos Municipal Code does not currently separately regulate retail pet stores in the City of San Marcos; and
WHEREAS, the City Council has been made aware of public protests occurring outside a newly established retail pet store in the City, has been approached by animal rights activists regarding their opposition to the retail sale of dogs, cats and/or rabbits received from commercial breeding operations, and has received a number of requests from City residents to enact an ordinance prohibiting the retail sale of these animals, which contributes to the overpopulation of animals in the City; and WHEREAS, the City Council has also received countervailing views on retail pet stores from the owner of such a business that recently opened in San Marcos; and
WHEREAS, prohibiting the sale of dogs, cats and/or rabbits in retail pet stores, unless the animals are obtained from a (i) city, county or other governmental animal shelter; (ii) animal control agency; (iii) humane society; (iv) animal rescue organization; or (iv) other non-commercial breeding establishment, may encourage pet consumers to adopt animals from shelters and rescue agencies, which could result in saving animals’ lives, decreasing the shelter animal euthanasia rate and reducing public costs for sheltering animals; and
WHEREAS, it is necessary for the City to extend the moratorium prohibiting the approval or issuance of any permit or other applicable license or entitlement for use, including but not limited to the issuance of a business license, building permit, conditional use permit, or other land use approval for the establishment of any retail pet store that would engage in the
• Page 15 • June 18, 2015
sale of dogs, cats and/or rabbits within the jurisdiction of the City to provide time for the City to evaluate the impacts that retail pet stores have on the public welfare of animals, residents and/or businesses, and bring forward a recommended regulatory structure for these establishments; minimize any negative effects the newly established retail pet store in the City’s jurisdiction might have on nearby businesses, property owners and residents of the City; and evaluate pending challenges to local ordinances that permanently ban the sale of dogs, cats and/or rabbits in other jurisdictions; and WHEREAS, in adopting this urgency Ordinance to extend the moratorium on retail pet stores, the City Council’s determination is based upon the following specific legislative findings: (a) Currently, there are no Federal or State laws that expressly prohibit retail pet stores from selling animals obtained through commercial breeding facilities. However, there are Federal and State statutory provisions that regulate the conditions and practices of the breeding facilities and the retail pet stores.
(b) The U.S. Congress passed the Animal Welfare Act in 1966 (7 U.S.C. § 2131 et seq.). The Act is the only Federal law that regulates the minimum standards of care and treatment for certain animals bred for commercial sale, including but not limited to dogs, cats and rabbits. The Act is upheld and enforced by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (USDA), and requires all animal dealers to be registered and licensed.
(c) California’s PolancoLockyer Pet Breeder Warranty Act (Health and Safety Code § 122045 et seq.) requires certain dog breeders to maintain certain health and safety standards for animals, sell only healthy animals, and provide an animal’s health record and status and other written disclosures to pet buyers. The Act also provides consumer protections for purchasing dogs if a California-licensed veterinarian provides written certification that the dog is unfit for sale. If after 15 days from the date of purchase, a dog becomes ill due to an illness that existed at the time of sale; or if within one year after purchase, the dog has a congenital or hereditary condition that adversely affects the health of the dog, or that requires or is likely in the future to require hospitalization or non-elective surgical procedures, then the owner may receive a refund for (i) the purchase price of the dog or another dog and reimbursement for reasonable veterinarian fees up to the purchase price of the dog; or (ii) reimbursement for veterinary fees up to 150 percent of the purchase price of the dog. The State’s Lockyer-Polanco-Farr Pet Protection Act (Health and Safety Code § 122125 et seq.) offers similar consumer protections relating to purchasing animals unfit for sale as those offered under the LockyerPolanco-Farr Pet Protection Act, except that it applies only to pet retailers selling more than 50 dogs per year (exempts animal shelters and humane societies), and also requires those pet retailers to have a permit and encourage the use of spaying and neutering services. (d) Other jurisdictions in the State of California have adopted local ordinances that permanently prohibit the sale of dogs and cats in retail pet stores, including but not limited to the cities of Oceanside, Chula Vista, South Lake Tahoe, West Hollywood, Hermosa Beach, Glendale, Irvine, Dana Point, Laguna Beach, Aliso Viejo, Huntington Beach, Burbank, and Rancho Mirage. Other jurisdictions in the State have permanently banned the sales of rabbits, in addition to prohibiting the retail sale of dogs and cats, including but not limited to San Diego, Los Angeles and San Francisco.
(e) Research shows that animals born and raised at puppy mills, kitten factories and rabbit mills are more likely to have genetic disorders and lack adequate socialization. The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) asserts that animals used for breeding purposes at these facilities may be subject to inhumane housing conditions and indiscriminately disposed of when they reach the end of their profitable breeding cycle.
(f) According to the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), hundreds of thousands of dogs and cats are housed and bred at “puppy mills” or “kitten factories,” which it defines as inhumane and substandard breeding facilities that mass-produce animals for sale to the public, typically through retail pet stores. The HSUS claims that this results in the physical, psychological and/or behavioral needs of the animals not being fulfilled due to inadequate housing, shelter, staffing, nutrition, socialization, sanitation, exercise, veterinary care and/or inappropriate breeding. The HSUS “Guide to Using Local Ordinances to Combat Puppy Mills” estimates that more than one million puppies are produced by USDAlicensed breeding facilities each year, while three to four million dogs and cats are euthanized by shelters every year in the United States. In 2014, the San Diego County Humane Society’s Annual Report stated that more than 1,600 animals were euthanized in San Diego County area shelters, alone. (g) According to the House Rabbit Society, an international, non-profit animal welfare organization committed to reducing the number of unwanted rabbits and improving rabbits’ lives, rabbits sold in retail pet stores are often sold as snake food or as a pet for a small child who soon “outgrows” the rabbit. Unwanted rabbits are often abandoned in fields, parks or on city streets to fend for themselves. This results in abandoned rabbits suffering from starvation and sickness and makes them easy prey for other animals or traffic accidents. (h) The USDA inspects commercial breeding facilities licensed and registered under the Animal Welfare Act to ensure the facilities are in compliance with federal regulations. After reviewing the most recent USDA Inspection Reports (from 2012 through the present) for the breeders cited by the owner of Mini Toy Puppies in San Marcos as currently supplying animals to Mini Toy Puppies, it was discovered that most operate commercial dog-breeding facilities with 300 to 400 dogs, on average, and one housed approximately 1,500 dogs at one time.
(i) A couple of the breeders that supply animals to Mini Toy Puppies have been in direct violation of federal regulations during the past year according to the latest USDA inspection reports. For the past three years in a row, one breeder has made the USHS’s “Horrible Hundred” list, which identifies problem puppy mills in the United States. The latest USHS list, released on May 1, 2015, provides that the breeder made the list because of certain USDA violations, including but not limited to the following: dog with no teeth and exposed jaw bone partially missing and detached from gums; dog unable to bear weight on back leg with a twisted toenail on foot and bleeding toe/paw; dog with bleeding teeth, black matter on teeth and green goopy discharge from eyes; dog with reddened skin, hair loss and scabbed over skin. In lists from previous years, that breeder had the following USDA violations: dog appearing thin to the point of spine and hip bones protruding; dog with a wounded bloody tail tip causing splattered blood on animal enclosure; dog with apparent eye and dental disease; and three dead puppies in various stages of dismem-
(j) According to the USDA’s website, every breeder Mini Toy Puppies currently uses has had at least one indirect federal violation during the past three years. Indirect violations cited at those breeding facilities, many of which are repeat violations meaning the facility was cited multiple times for the same violation, include but are not limited to the following: dog fecal material matted in fur; swollen knee three times the normal size; mass or swelling on foot; brown/black/green/yellow material on teeth and in gum line; eye conditions – swelling on cornea, dark and crusty discharge, white film, blue colored lesion, reddened eyes, etc.; accumulation of dirt, hair, dead insects, spider webs, debris and/or other grime; water having a green tinge to it and food receptacles having a green residue on the inside surface; self-feeders have an accumulation of dark matter and wet food in crevices; enclosures not large enough for animals to make normal postural adjustments (i.e. sitting, standing and lying down); dirty feces and urine pools remain directly under dogs and wastewater cannot completely drain; no shade for animals during periods of direct sunlight, or wind/rain breaks to protect animals from outdoor elements and inclement weather; broken or cut sharp wires sticking out of and protruding into animal enclosures; no flooring on enclosures; rusted/broken support structures; dogs in “grave” need of grooming (i.e. long, matted, dirty or twisted coats); and inadequate ventilation and overwhelming odor of ammonia. NOW, THEREFORE, the City Council of the City of San Marcos, California, in accordance with the freedom afforded to charter cities generally, and by the Charter of the City of San Marcos specifically, and pursuant to Government Code Section 65858, does ordain as follows:
Section 1. Extension of Moratorium. For the reasons described above, the City Council has determined it is necessary to extend interim urgency Ordinance No. 20151408 to continue the moratorium on the establishment of retail pet stores in the City of San Marcos pursuant to Government Code Section 65858. No permit or other applicable license or entitlement for use, including but not limited to the issuance of a business license, building permit, conditional use permit, or other land use approval, shall be approved and/or issued for the establishment of any retail pet store that would engage in the sale of dogs, cats and/or rabbits within the jurisdiction of the City. This Ordinance does not affect animal shelters, humane societies, and animal rescue organizations, and nothing in this Ordinance prevents a retail pet store, or its owner, operator or employees from providing space and appropriate care for animals owned by a publiclyoperated animal control agency or shelter, nonprofit humane society, or nonprofit animal rescue organization and maintained at the retail pet store for the purpose of adopting those animals to the public. This Ordinance does not preclude the continued operation of any retail pet establishment lawfully existing on the effective date hereof, for the extended moratorium period.
Section 2. Recitals Made Findings. In adopting this extension Ordinance, the City Council finds and declares that the above recitals are hereby declared to be true and correct findings of the City Council; and each of the recitals and findings contained in interim urgency Ordinance No. 2015-1408 remain true and correct and are hereby incorporated by reference; and the adoption of this extension Ordinance is necessary to further study the impacts that retail pet stores have on the public welfare of animals, residents and/or businesses; craft regulations governing these
establishments in the City; minimize any negative effects the newly established retail pet store in the City’s jurisdiction might have on nearby businesses, property owners and residents of the City; and evaluate pending challenges to local ordinances that permanently ban the sale of dogs, cats and/or rabbits in other jurisdictions. The adoption of this extension Ordinance is necessary on an urgency basis because of the continued and immediate threat retail pet stores and the approval of any permit or other applicable license or entitlement for use pose to the public welfare of animals, residents and/or businesses and the preservation of peace within the City’s jurisdictional boundaries. Section 3. Consistency with the SMMC. Any provision of the SMMC that is inconsistent with any provision of this Ordinance, to the extent of such inconsistencies and no further, is hereby repealed or modified only to the extent necessary to effect the provisions of this Ordinance.
Section 4. Severability. If any section, sentence, clause or phrase of this Ordinance is determined to be invalid, illegal or unconstitutional by a decision or order of any court or agency of competent jurisdiction, then such decision or order will not affect the validity and enforceability of the remaining portions of this Ordinance. The City Council declares that it would have passed and adopted the Ordinance, and each section, sentence, clause or phrase thereof, regardless of the fact that any one or more sections, subsections, sentences, clauses, or phrases be declared invalid or unconstitutional.
Section 5. Effective Date. This Ordinance takes effect immediately upon adoption as an urgency measure. The moratorium on retail pet stores established under interim urgency Ordinance No. 20151408 is hereby extended for a period of ten (10) months and fifteen (15) days from after the date Ordinance No. 2015-1408 would have otherwise expired, unless prior to its expiration, following a noticed public hearing in accordance with Government Code Section 65090, the City Council extends this Ordinance pursuant to Government Code Section 65858. Section 6. Publication. Within fifteen (15) days following the adoption of this extension Ordinance, the City Clerk shall certify to the passage of this Ordinance and cause the same to be published in accordance with the provisions of State Law in a newspaper of general circulation designated for legal notices publication in the City of San Marcos. PASSED, APPROVED AND ADOPTED at a special meeting of the City Council of the City of San Marcos, California, held on the 12th day of June, 2015, by the following roll call vote:

Welcome to "Oral Sedation Dentistry"
Fear has no boundaries affecting all types of people. There are no sex, economic, or race discrimination guidelines. Research shows at least 30% or our population avoids going to the dentist due to fear. Our personal estimate is closer to 50% where anxiety is the culprit for avoiding needed care. With such a large segment of the population needing care but too afraid to seek us out, it is easy to see why a safe, non-judgemental, pain-free experience would be a welcome change for the anxietysticken patient. Oral Conscious Sedation (OCS) meets that incredible need. The Dentists who have
made a commitment to learn the advanced technical skills required to practice OCS provide a solution for those needing this service putting them into a state of "twilight sleep" without rendering them actually unconscious. To be totally successful a dentist must learn more than just the technical skills. The certified OCS dentist must understand the emotional state as well. This involves understanding the state of a high-fear patient. This requires the dentist to actively listen to those who have avoided dentistry for years because of intense, realistic, palm-sweating, sick-to-the-stomach, eyepopping, and sleep depriving fear. It is a well-known fact that many people are often afraid to tell anyone about their fear, so they felt isolated. As dentists, we must be their "rock" in these situations and let them know that we understand their fear and that it is okay for them to feel the way they do. Using compassion and our expert-
ise, we are able to take their fear seriously, they are not being silly, and that we care about their emotional needs as well as their dental needs.
If the patient fears one dental visit to the dentist, imagine their frustration when they find out that they have not attended to their dental health over many years because of their fear, and that they may have to have appointments, numerous over many months, to complete their care. This is always received as discouraging news and often
becomes the deciding factor in not having their dentistry done. "Is there a way, with sedation, that our patients could have their treatment accomplished in minimal visits, with no pain and little memory of this experience?" "Would this be encouraging?"
As certified in OCS we can provide this kind of treatment in a comfortable and caring way which will improve your patient's health and self-esteem while at the same time improving the individual's view of your professional competency.
