The next time you tell someone to jump off a bridge, you might not think of it as a joke anymore. A day does not go by in which someone does just that. Consider the cost to society. According to Lostallhope.com, a website that ranks the efficacy of suicidal methods, jumping from heights is the #7 most effective method, though the timing is long and the agony is high. If you take the Coronado Bridge to work, right here in San Diego, you are among the more than 80,000 daily crossings. You just may find yourself trapped in a horrendous traffic jam on the bridge, often lasting for hours, because when a jumper is spotted, both the CHP and the Coronado Police are called out, and it’s usually a mess. Bridges, by definition, are edifices built to get from Point A to Point B. The San Diego-Coronado bridge is a commuter bridge, no foot traffic. Considered one of the world’s most beautiful and graceful bridges, a sure-fire tourist attraction, there is a dark side, an underside, to its tale.
Rising high over the San Diego Skyline, the Coronado Bridge has earned itself the reputation as being one of the most dangerous bridges in the world, not from traffic accidents, but from suicide jumpers. Nothing can beat the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, though.

This iconic landmark makes the number one spot on any list of Suicide Bridges. The main differences between the two bridges are the two California cities that host them. San Francisco is planning on spending big bucks on stopping suicides from its rafters. San Diego is spending zilch.
Guns, gas, pills, even hanging comes with a cost, considerations of availability, and the very likely possibility that whatever you pick won’t work. Jumping off a bridge guarantees a positive result, negatively speaking.
Thus, all the fussing and fuming over the death trap on the San Diego Bay is funneled to an agency that simply does not care. “If people want to trespass on our property, we cannot stop them,” said Ed Cartegna, a CalTrans spokesperson, who said the agency won’t spend a dime to help them, either.
Money talks and $76 million dollars is a lot of money. That is the amount that supporters of installing netting around the underside of the Golden Gate Bridge have raised in 2015. The money is committed, the plan is committed, and the people who are committed to this project have really left their hearts in San Francisco.
There are other differences between these iconic killers. The Coronado Bridge is owned and operated by CalTrans, a State Agency that monitors over 300 bridges in California. The Golden Gate Bridge is owned and operated by a quasi-public authority, which also runs a public transportation system.
So, while suicide prevention barriers remain a hot topic, are the traffic disruptions on the Coronado Bridge going to change in the near future?
“No,” said Cartegna, the CalTrans spokesperson. “There are too many layers (of bureaucracy) to make any predictions now.”
Before we look at why people want to kill themselves, it is important to recognize that they do. Choice of death or life is replaced by choice of execution.
If you live in San Francisco, the Golden Gate Bridge is so associated with the San Francisco Bay Area that knowing that their bridge is the Number One Suicide Bridge is taken seriously by a lot of the locals. San Diego’s populace may have a tinge of guilt about the Coronado Bridge but has a marginal way of showing it. Though this situation is slowly changing.
Suicide is, after all, a mental health issue. Psychiatrists suggest that persons who are considering offing themselves are not in their right mind and are not capable of making sound decisions. Suicide intervention is the philosophy of preventing persons with suicidal ideation from completing the act. This article addresses some of these issues.
Few studies document what causes a person to consider death by suicide and even fewer studies

explore the impact on the victim’s family and friends. Anecdotal comments abound, often from the less than a handful of bridge jumping survivors. For those individuals, their last thoughts were: O, shit, is there a better way, but it was usually too late to change course. The big bucks being spent today on the Golden Gate Bridge did not come from just one source. The Bridge itself put $20 million dollars of skin into the game and then starting looking around for government grants. CalTrans, the agency that does not care about the Coronado Bridge, donated $29 million to the Golden Gate Bridge. The Feds jacked up their share based on a new program to help fix the nation’s understructures. And the State of California Department of Mental Health added a fair slice, based on its incentive to encourage suicide prevention.
It took more than ten years, a lot of advocating, and a sense of direction to get to the point of where the 70+ years Golden Gate Bridge is today. This makes news. San Diego continues to ignore its problem with the Coronado Bridge. Unfortunately, that makes news, too.
The City of Coronado has suggested that maybe it should assign a staff member to look at the situation. That remains to be seen. CalTrans won’t even talk about the crisis. And, the concerned citizens of Coronado are working hard to get more global recognition.

Bridges are not the only suicide targets; tall buildings also share the burden. What seems to be a common thread, according to the head shrink at a San Francisco hospital, a displaced New Yorker himself, is what is close by works. In New York City, the target may be the Empire State Building. In San Francisco, the large, orange, tourist trap that can be seen for miles around, known at the Golden Gate Bridge, is the method of choice.
“No one in San Francisco can go on with their lives without thinking about someone they knew that jumped off the GGB,” said Dr. Mel Blaustein. “Over 90% of the jumpers come from this town.” Why not? You can drive your car and park it, or, grab a bus to get to your final destination. Why do people jump? Will putting steel netting around the Golden Gate Bridge stop people from jumping? “The campaign for the Golden Gate Bridge got started in earnest more than 10 years ago,” said Dr. Mel Blaustein, “and we are just getting funding now.”
There are documented studies that show that when an attractive nuisance exercises attempts at suicide intervention, there are positive results. In Toronto, in Paris, and even in China, when money has been spent to divert

John Bateson is the author of several books and was very generous with his time and his comments. He wrote Final Leap, Suicide on the Golden Gate Bridge, in 2012, placing him as a regional expert on death by suicide (don’t say commit suicide, not politically correct), suicide intervention, and suicide attempts off the Golden Gate Bridge.
“Suicide barriers on bridges save lives,” Bateson said in a recent interview. “Research proves it. According to JAMA, the Journal of the American Medical Association, restricting access to lethal means is one of the two most effective ways to prevent suicides (the other way is to see that physicians receive more training in risk assessment and effective intervention strategies).” “According to the Harvard School of Public Health, 90 percent of people who attempt suicide and survive don't go on to kill themselves. In a study at UC Berkeley, researchers tracked what happened to 515 people who were STOPPED FROM JUMPING off the Golden Gate Bridge. Twentyfive years later, 94 percent were still alive or had died by means other than suicide. Only six percent went on to kill themselves.” “When my book came out, 32 people were known to have survived a jump from the Golden Gate

Bridge. Almost every person who survived said that he or she wanted to live as soon as they went over the side. They also said that they didn't have a Plan B. It was the Golden Gate Bridge or nothing.” “In every instance in which a bridge barrier has been installed, suicides from that site have ended. Moreover, there hasn't been an increase in suicides from neighboring bridges, and there hasn't been an increase in local suicides by other means.” Asked why do people find it so ‘attractive’ to jump off a bridge and would education on the effects of jumping be more effective than just putting up a phone number and a call box, Bateson replied:
“Many people, who are suicidal, fixate on one means of death. If that means isn't available to them, they don't resort to another means. Instead, they choose to live” Bridges are popular suicide sites for a variety of reasons.
“First, jumping from a tall bridge that doesn't have a suicide barrier is relatively easy. A person doesn't need to procure a gun, hoard pills, learn how to tie a hangman's knot, inhale carbon monoxide, etc. He or she just needs to get to the bridge and jump.” “Second, there is a belief that jumping from a bridge results in a quick, near-certain death.

ISN'T ALWAYS TRUE. Even from the Golden Gate Bridge, which is higher than most other spans, five percent of jumpers survive the fall and end up drowning, their bodies broken, their last few seconds filled with agony.”
“Third, many jumpers think that they will just disappear under the water, never to be seen again, or their bodies will be recovered by Coast Guard crews. Either way, loved ones are spared the agony of a gruesome death scene and a messy cleanup.” “Lastly, suicide sites develop a deadly allure, and people who are dealing with inner demons are drawn to them, like a siren's call.” The greater the number of deaths, the stronger the site's attraction.
I asked Bateson: Do people who suffer from suicidal ideation focus on bridges or is it more impulse?
“It's a misperception that many suicides are impulsive acts. Impulse plays a part in role in some youth suicides, but in most cases, suicide isn't a spur-of-themoment act. People have thought about it, planned for it, and-most importantly-developed the capacity.” “That said, 10 to 15 percent of Golden Gate Bridge jumpers are teens, and the average age of jumpers is under 40, which is a

different demographic than suicides overall, where seniors comprise the largest percentage. Thus, impulsivity is a factor, but only for people whose preferred means of death is a fall from a great height.”
A lot of people don’t care about the jumpers. They do care about the view, the history, and the accessibility of their bridges, whether it is the Coronado Bridge or the Golden Gate Bridge. People who enjoy the outstanding views are upset about losing it. Traffic gets tied up when jumpers jump. “First off, the view doesn't have to be lost,” said Bateson. “A net underneath the bridge, which was the option chosen for the Golden Gate Bridge, won't impact views from the bridge at all. Other options, such as thin steel rods spaced several inches apart, only marginally impact the view because they are easy to see through.” “Whenever a suicide deterrent has been added after the fact to a bridge or tall building, such as the Eiffel Tower, Empire State Building, St. Peter's Basilica, the Duomo, or Sydney Harbour Bridge, it has quickly become accepted as PART OF THE STRUCTURE and given no further thought. Tourism hasn't been affected-just lives saved.” “Second, it's not as if the only views of scenic surroundings come from a bridge. A person driving a car or truck should have his or her eyes on the road. Turnouts and vista points offer ample opportunities to pull over and appreciate the view.”
“Third, the view quickly turns from beautiful to horrific if one sees someone jump from the bridge. The impact of witnessing a bridge jump oftentimes is lost in the debate over a suicide barrier, but it can be as traumatic as losing a loved one to a bridge jump.” Suicide prevention is still the bailiwick of the shrinks and it’s hard to tell what kind of a job they are doing.
Mel Blaustein, MD, is the medical director of psychiatry at St. Francis Memorial Hospital in San Francisco and president of the Psychiatric Foundation of Northern California, which is the group that started the Golden Gate Suicide prevention campaign, in 2004. “I was the one who started the campaign for the Golden Gate Bridge. Somebody had to do it and get it started.” “People who consider suicide are not rational. This is not a question of free will. If they had a chance to reconsider, they would not jump. That is why we need suicide barriers.”
“These people are in a temporary state of distress. If someone were adrift at sea in a lifeboat, wouldn’t we want to help them? Same
“The jumper’s irrational thought process is that suicide is the only way out of their pain. Suicide by jumping is NOT common. The 30 – 40 deaths each year are less than five percent of the total deaths by suicide.” “The problem is that bridge jumping is an attractive target. If you make it less attractive and less accessible, people will not jump.” “It may cost $76 million to build the netting, which is twice what the Bridge cost to build in 1937. But isn’t it worth it to save lives?”
“Bridge jumpers know no other method. If you can stop them, they do not seek out other methods.” But, Doctor Blaustein, I asked, isn’t suicide a selfish act?
“No, these people are so miserable that they cannot think straight. They do not think how their deaths will affect family and friends. They just think that they would be better off, which is not the case.”
Coronado. “The goal of this suicide prevention group is to raise awareness of the Bridge’s past history and to encourage the installation of suicide prevention barriers,” said Haiston. One final comment. There is a stigma to suicide. “We do not use the term ‘committed suicide.’ Sounds like you committed a bank robbery or murder," said Heather Shadur, spokesperson for Alliance of Hope, a website dedicated to helping loss survivors, the family and friends of the victim.
“We would rather say ‘died by suicide.’ Grief is complicated enough without the stigma. Many of our survivors either witness the act or found the body.” “Kindness is the best way to deal with people,” said Ronnie Walker, the founder of Alliance of Hope. “The general public can do much to become compassionate and supportive of loss survivors.”
Visibility plays a role in the mind of the person Hell bent on destroying himself.
“Celebrity suicides are detrimental. Causes copycats. After Marilyn Monroe supposedly died of a drug overdose, other people tried it. Ripple effect.”
“Methods of suicide are proportional to location, sex, age, and other factors. The key element is familiarity. In Manhattan, they like to jump from tall buildings because we have so many there.”
The problem still remains that “bridge jumping is an attractive target,” said Blaustein. “If you make it less attractive and less accessible, people will not jump. There are many ways to commit suicide, ALL OF THEM IRREVERSIBLE. You can take the bus to the bridge and only have a fourfoot barrier. Seen as spectacular.” Back home in San Diego, what is being done about the Coronado Bridge?
The neighborhood advocacy group, Coronado Bridge Collaborative, presented a petition to the City of Coronado’s City Council, on Tuesday, May 5, 2015, during the regular board meeting, asking for recognition of the problem. While encouraging the group, the City Council made no financial commitments.
“The number of potential suicides from the Coronado Bridge is exponentially rising each year,” said Rhonda Haiston, co-founder of the group. “The residents of Coronado worry about the traffic problems but we want the people coming to our community, who consider ending their lives on our bridge, to know we care.” On Father’s Day, June 21, 2015, the group had over 300 attendees at its first annual Memorial Wreath Toss Launch into San Diego Bay at Tidelands Park, in

The alert witness continued to keep Sediqi under observation while at the same time she notified the police. Escondido Police Officers arrived on scene and detained Sediqi. During the preliminary investigation, it was confirmed that Sediqi had been using his cell phone to take several images under the clothing of unsuspecting women, two of whom were juveniles. The photos were taken from at least two different locations, a disorderly conduct violation commonly referred to as “up skirting.” Sediqi was immediately taken into custody. Sediqi was booked into Vista Detention Facility for (2) counts of annoying and molesting a child, a violation of penal code section 647.6(a); and, (4) counts of disorderly conduct, a violation of penal code section 647(j)(2).

Three years ago, they vowed to save the life of every healthy and treatable animal in San Diego shelters by the end of 2015. They are now in the homestretch of that goal. Although San Diego Humane Society has not euthanized a healthy or treatable animal in 13 years, they are committed to helping other shelters reach this milestone. For the past three years, they've been working diligently to transfer healthy and treatable animals in from partner shelters and give them the medical or behavioral support they need to become ready for adoption. To date, they've transferred in nearly 6,000 animals who were at risk of euthanasia.

The budget deadline was met, but…
On June 15, the Legislature met its constitutional obligations and passed a general fund budget for the upcoming 2015-2016 fiscal year. That budget proposal was $749 million more than Governor Brown had proposed, and bore little chance of passage. Negotiations began quickly, and on June 16 legislative leaders and the Governor reached agreement on a $115.4 billion budget, largely in accord with Governor Brown’s wishes.
Though the new budget has several plusses, including long delayed funding increases for the CSU and UC systems, spending priorities remain skewed, to say the least. First of all, at a time of increasing Medi-Cal enrollments resulting from implementation of Obamacare, the budget creates new health care entitlements for undocumented immigrant children that will cost millions, while leaving reduced MediCal reimbursement rates in place. These reductions have

made it increasingly difficult for Medi-Cal enrollees to get the treatment they need, especially now that enrollments are skyrocketing. This problem should be fixed first, before expensive new entitlements are created. Another pressing need, a costly upgrade for our state’s crumbling highway system remains unaddressed, despite higher state revenues and the problem’s “high priority” status. Even so, significant funding for new highway projects was not included in the budget.
Special sessions to deal with the Medi-Cal and transportation issues, which are almost certain to include calls for massive tax hikes, will be called at a later date. In short, the new budget’s spending priorities are seriously out-of-whack. These misplaced priorities will create new social and welfare programs that cost billions, while allowing longstanding problems impacting millions of Californians to fester.

victims of this crime are women and young girls in public places such as department stores, grocery stores, parks or any other public place. The victims are often chosen by the perpetrator because the victim appears distracted or unaware of their immediate surroundings. In this case, the alert response of the victim/witness not only led to Sediqi’s arrest for up skirting, but also to the discovery of much more serious offenses involving indecent acts with a child and child pornography.
As a part of the follow up investigation, Sediqi’s cell phone was forensically analyzed by Escondido Police Detective Damian Jackson, the EPD representative of the San Diego Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force. The phone was found to contain over six thousand images, most of which were innocuous photographs, but a detailed examination of the phone resulted in the discovery of many photographs that contained pornographic images of children. Some of the photos were of children who appeared to be as young as 3-5 years of age. By the time this discovery was made, Sediqi had been released from custody, after posting bail for his original charges. A probable cause pick up authorizing the arrest of Sediqi on new charges was immediately issued and Escondido Police requested the assistance of the U.S. Marshals San Diego Fugitive Task Force,who located and arrested Sediqi in less than twenty-four hours. Sediqi was returned to Vista Detention Facility.
On June 15th, Escondido Police Detectives served a search warrant on the residence of Sediqi, located at 17472 Matinal Road, San

American revolutionary cause was noble. He travelled to the New World where the Continental Congress made the 19-year-old a major general, though initially he was not given troops to command. After Lafayette offered to serve without pay, Congress commissioned him a major general. Among Lafayette's early advocates included Benjamin Franklin, who urged Congress to accommodate the young Frenchman.
The ‘Hero of the Two Worlds’
There’s one Frenchman whose name will live forever in historic revolutionary endeavors – the Marquis de Lafayette.
Gilbert du Motier, Marquis de Lafayette was born Sept. 6, 1757. He was one of the outstanding figures of both American and French revolutions. Here in the U.S., he was known simply as “Lafayette.” Lafayette was a French aristocrat and military officer who became a close friend of George Washington, Alexander Hamilton, and Thomas Jefferson. He came from a wealthy family; was commissioned an officer at age 13, and was convinced the
Gen. George Washington, commander in chief of the Continental Army, met Lafayette at a dinner in 1777. Washington took Lafayette to his military camp and made the young Frenchman a member of his staff. Congress regarded Lafayette’s general officer commission as “honorary,” while he considered himself a full-fledged commander. Washington told Lafayette a command because of his foreign birth, but the young French officer distinguished himself battle after battle. Wounded during the Battle of Brandywine, Lafayette still managed to organize an orderly retreat. He served with distinction in the Battle of Rhode Island.

In addition to puppy mills filling up retail stores, we have backyard breeders mass producing puppies. Its easy to do and little expense is involved because no veterinary costs are provided. There is no sales tax generated from backyard breeders as well.
I could go on and on and on but suffice it to say that the puppy trade is a very "dirty business" conducted without compassion for the dogs or concern for their pain and suffering. To allow stores to sell these puppies then supports the inhumane practices that go into the trafficking of puppies. One of the ways to begin, in a small way, to short circuit the flood of puppies coming into your area is to close the door on the industry. Its simple and quick. Just don't let it get a foothold. That's just my two cents. If I can be of any help in this, please feel free to contact me at your convenience.

In the middle of the Revolutionary War, Lafayette returned to France to lobby for an increase in French support, which ultimately gave victory to the Americans over the British. He sailed back to America in 1780, and was given senior positions in Washington’s Continental Army. In 1781, American troops under Lafayette’s command blocked British forces until other American and French forces could position themselves for the decisive Siege of Yorktown, Virginia, resulting in Lord Cornwallis’ surrender, which ended the war.
Lafayette returned to France and, in 1787, was appointed to the Assembly of Notables. He helped write the French Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen, with the assistance of Thomas Jefferson. He became a member of the Chamber of Deputies, a position he held for the remainder of his life. After leading the citizens to storm the Bastille (prison) during the French Revolution, Lafayette was appointed commander-in-chief of the French National Guard, and tried to steer a moderate course, but radical factions ordered his arrest and he spent more than five years in prison.

May 7th and 8th passed us by. The significance of these days is lost on most Americans. VE day (Victory in Europe) is the day Germany surrendered. August 14th VJ day (Victory in the Pacific) will pass just as quietly. Ask any one under sixty about these days and in all likelihood, you would receive a blank stare. Yet, at one time, both days were holidays celebrating the end of World War II.
The living memory of these days and what they meant to this nation and the lives of its citizens is rapidly dying out. This year marks the 70th anniversary of the end of that war, and my 77th year on earth. Yet memories from my childhood still linger.
I remember rationing and what it meant. My family took me to my uncle's wedding by my grandparents farm, 35 miles away. Normally we would have driven, but because of rationing, there wasn't enough gas. We had to take the train.
Rubber and metal were rationed. I remember Mr. Morrow, my neighbor, begging for a new tire, because the tire he was using was so bald it looked like a racing slick. The
power as Emperor of France, he ordered Lafayette’s release.
On June 22, 1815, four days after the Battle of Waterloo, Napoleon abdicated as French Emperor. Lafayette tried to save him by arranging for Napoleon’s passage to America where the former emperor could live in exile, but the British prevented that from happening. The man who nearly conquered all of Europe would be held prisoner by the British on the small island of Saint Helena in the south Atlantic for the rest of his lifes.
The Marquis deLafayette died on May 20, 1834, at the age of 76. He is buried in Picpus Cemetery in Paris under soil from Boston’s Bunker Hill. For his accomplishments in the service of both France and the United States, he is sometimes known as "The Hero of the Two Worlds." In the United States, President Andrew Jackson ordered that Lafayette receive the same memorial honors bestowed on Washington in 1799. Both Houses of Congress were draped in black bunting for 30 days, and members wore mourning badges. Congress urged Americans to follow similar mourning practices.
Later in 1834, former President John Quincy Adams gave a eulogy of Lafayette that lasted three hours, calling him "high on the list of the pure and disinterested benefactors of mankind."
tire had already failed twice, but all they could do for him was repair it. Rubber was rationed.
I remember one Christmas when my cousins toy airplane cockpit was make out of cardboard. Normally this toy would have been made out of metal, but all metals were strategic and unavailable. Food was rationed, meat, vegetables, sugar and flour. A ration card was often the most valuable asset a family owned. We had a vegetable garden, called a victory garden. I helped my mother and father work in that patch. Most families had them. My mother would take the produce from that garden and can the vegetables, corn, green beans, peas and tomatoes.
I was six years old when Franklin Roosevelt died. A neighbor kid told me about it and I asked my mom "Who is Franklin Roosevelt?" "He's the president," answered. "Why?"
"He died." I said and I watched my mom struggle to the radio and listen with tears in her eyes to the news.
I remember when the war ended. I was riding my tricycle on the corner of our block, on a

warm summer day. Suddenly sirens went off, people in cars honked their horns and it seemed like every one came bubbling out of their houses. The feeling of joy mixed with relief was tangible. The single topic of conversation was, "The boys are coming home." I had two uncles who saw combat during the war, one in Europe and one in the Pacific. They were among the fortunate who came home to the life they dreamt of while overseas. Even though they came through their ordeal unscathed, they still carried the scars of combat for the rest of their lives. One covered his scars with alcohol, the other refought the battles in his sleep for the rest of his life.
Every year through the early fifties, we celebrated the anniversary of the "day the boys came home." The fifties brought us Korea, sixties saw us in Vietnam, all fought with the cold war as a backdrop. Then there were US troops in Somalia and American air support in Bosnia. Now we find our boys in harm's way once again in both Afghanistan and Iraq. The world boils with trouble seemingly demanding our attention. Time faded the significance of VE day and VJ day holidays. The two morphed into one and

Veterans Day honors all the service men who have served this country and I think that is appropriate.
But from time to time, I wonder if it might also be appropriate to have a day to honor those men who sacrificed so much to make us what we are. I don't believe that their holiday should be forgotten.

The club meets Saturday mornings,
The Pastor Says . . .
Ivy, a 5-year-old Dutch mix, is a sweet bunny looking for the perfect family to call her own. Her unique markings and adorably large ears make her one of the prettiest bunnies we’ve ever seen, and her silly personality simply can’t be beat! Ivy’s caregivers describe her as a cheerful, bubbly bunny who’s ready to play with a new family. This sweet, adorable little girl loves to be around her people. While she may get a bit overzealous in a cage, she does much better in an x-pen environment where she has more room to move and play. Her ideal home would be with a bunny-savvy family who can show her the love she’s been missing. Rabbits are very smart, silly and can easily be litter box trained for minimal cleanup. Her adoption fee includes her spay, permanent microchip identification, and a certificate for a free veterinary exam! Ivy is available for adoption at the San Diego Humane Society’s Escondido Campus at 3540 East Valley Parkway. Please call (760) 888-2275.

Often in the Old Testament, and continuing into the New Testament, the people of God were called to “remember.” In the Psalms it is like an historical journey through the history of Israel. Usually the high points are the slavery in Egypt, the crossing of the Red Sea, the Promised Land, the Exile, and the promise of a Messiah.
Pastor Tom Fry (Retired) Church of the Nazarene
If you are like me, the first thing you read in THE PAPER is the “Chuckles.” And, like me, you might have noticed that our esteemed editor almost always includes a story about people “of a certain age” and their inability to remember. Really, neither of those ideas bothers me. You’ll eventually find your way to this column and I have plenty of “Where did I put…..” moments. While I have been studying the Book of The Psalms, I have run across both the word remember and the thought of how important it is to remember. Not where you put your car keys, but the life journey you have led.
In the New Testament, the journey takes the people, now both Jews and Gentiles right through the coming of the Messiah in Jesus Christ, his life, his death, his resurrection and the coming of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost. Remembering was often a part of great celebrations in the Jewish tradition and that continued in the Christian tradition. Remembering is really a form of what athletes call “muscle memory.” That’s being able to do the same thing, time after time, with a golf club, a basketball, a tennis racket or a soccer ball. If you can do the same muscle motions every time, you will succeed. During the celebratory times we remember how God has blessed us so that in the difficult times we will not forget his blessings. Instead, our “muscle memory” will prompt us to remember that God has always been with us and he will always be with us.

Civic Center Front Lawn to Transform into Water-wise Landscaping
To go the extra water-saving mile, the City of San Marcos will be transforming the Civic Center front lawn along San Marcos Boulevard into a water-wise landscape this summer.
Instead of water intensive, high maintenance turf, residents will see an oval-shaped border with meadow grass and succulents or perennials. Higher efficiency sprinkler technology with drip irrigation and high-efficiency nozzles will also be put in place.
These changes, paid for in part by funding from the Water Security, Clean Drinking Water, Coastal and Beach Protection Act, will reduce water use and minimize run-off into the streets while creating a beautiful space for City Hall visitors. To learn more about City water saving efforts, visit www.san-marcos.net/savingH2O. Water waste in public areas can also be reported online at www.san-marcos.net/reportaconcern.

That means, on average, golfers get about 41 miles to the gallon. Kind of makes you proud. I almost feel like a hybrid. ••••• A husband and wife are on the 9th green when suddenly she collapses from a heart attack! "Help me dear," she groans to her husband.
The husband calls 911 on his cell phone, talks for a few minutes, picks up his putter, and lines up his putt.
His wife raises her head off the green and stares at him. "I'm dying here and you're putting?” "Don't worry dear," says the husband calmly, "they found a doctor on the second hole and he's coming to help you.”

Diego. In addition to being the private home and residence of Abdullah Sediqi, the residence is also the location of the Kid’s Castle Day Care, also known as the Sediqi Family Child Care, which is owned and operated by Sediqi’s ex-wife, Katrien Sediqi. The search warrant resulted in the seizure of all records of current clients of the day care center. Also seized were additional phones, computers and external hard drives; and, 13.88 grams of cocaine, possessed by Roin Mohammad Sediqi, 26, of San Diego, who is the adult son of the suspect. Roin Sediqi was arrested for possession of a controlled substance and possession of a controlled substance for sale. Roin Sediqi was booked into the Vista Detention Facility.
The investigation has disclosed that many of the pornographic images found on Abdullah Sediqi’s phone are of children who were clients at the day care center operated from his home. The Escondido Police Department has contacted the parents of every child who is a current client of the Kid’s Castle Day Care and notified them of the arrest of Abdullah Sediqi. A notification has also been made to the Community

Microsoft Windows 10, why? Part 2 of 3
“XP and Vista users as well as Windows 7 and 8 users can have the Windows 10 upgrade “free.” “Windows 8 revenues down 26% in latest quarter” “Microsoft fires VPs in management shake- up.” These events at Microsoft last week need to be discussed in the light of the impending release of Windows 10 in July. Microsoft is a ponderous bureaucracy. They have been famously slow in reacting to trends and technology. They were late to understand the importance of the Internet and late to understand the impact of mobile technologies. Now they are desperately trying to catch up. With their main revenue source, OS (operating systems) for PCs drying up, they’re a late entry into the mobile markets

non-compliance with current earthquake standards. A selling point for building the new campus. 2. The cost of refurbishing infrastructure at the downtown hospital has been placed at above $172 million. Is this an in-house estimate or based upon actual bids? If repaired would the campus then be compliant with earthquake standards?
3. Were further use of the downtown site as a hospital proved unachievable, what is the highest and best use of the property? 4. Is there a current market value appraisal of the hospital building and grounds?
5. Is there any chance of Kaiser or Humana, etc. purchasing or leasing the campus? 6. If demolition were required what would be that cost?
7. What might the district ultimately realize from a sale of the site? 8. What other options has the board considered? 9.
The interest rate cli-
(phones and tablets.) dominated by Android (Google) and iOS (Apple). They hope to morph Windows into a single OS that will work on Mobile devices and PCs. Google provides the mobile Android OS at no cost to mobile device makers. They make profits from device sales and Google gets the revenues from ads and apps. On Apple devices, Apple gets all the money and that’s what Microsoft wants to do. Microsoft developed and manufactured the “surface” tablet and spent 7.2 billion dollars in 2013 to buy Nokia’s struggling phone and tablet division. In 2013 Microsoft’s Windows was being used in only 3% of mobile devices. By 2015 with Windows 8/8.1 Microsoft’s market share had dropped to 2.7%.
Last week Microsoft made several changes. They combined Windows OS, PCs and mobile devices under a single VP, Terry Meyerson. It’s called WDG (Windows and Devices Group). Most of the top executives from Nokia have been let go including Stephen Elop, Nokia CEO and once touted as Ballmer’s successor at Microsoft and Mark Penn the man responsible for Microsoft’s advertising and market strategy. Meyerson has the tough job of building Microsoft’s mobile presence and selling the Windows 10 cross-platform
mate is conducive to refinancing current bonds and seeking funds required to complete the new campus including a parking garage. Considering the hospital district’s financial circumstances might the public approve new bonds rather than face potential loss of services? 10. How long has the hospital board deferred maintenance and repairs to prop up costs of operating both campuses?
11. Until now, has the board been forthcoming with the public about the serious losses attributed to operating both hospital campuses? 12. Is it now the boards’ goal to consolidate and permanently serve Escondido with only the new campus?
13. What is the board’s current goal to supply a mid-town facility?

technology to users. Much of the blame for Microsoft’s current predicament gets heaped on Ex Microsoft CEO “Monkey Boy Ballmer” (if you want to see why Ballmer is called “Monkey Boy” simply type Monkey Boy Ballmer into your search engine and watch the You Tube video. It’s worth the trouble) Ballmer bullied a reluctant board of directors into endorsing the costly Nokia deal and presided over the Windows 8 disaster.
If Windows 10 doesn’t succeed, Microsoft risks joining the legions of great American companies that slowly wither away. Make no mistake; Windows 10 was designed to save Microsoft, not to benefit users. It is no surprise that Win 10 is now being offered free of charge to XP and Vista users. Microsoft only delayed that announcement in
the hope that Vista and XP users would pay for an upgrade to Win 7 or 8 in order to get the free Win 10 upgrade. It will be no surprise when Microsoft extends the one year free upgrade period indefinitely. Microsoft needs everyone to be on Win 10. Windows 10 may indeed be something you will want to have on your PC, tablet or phone someday. If you have and hate Win 8/8.1 you may want to switch to Win 10. If you have Win 7 you probably won’t. Whatever your situation, it is foolish to “upgrade” to a new OS until it has been debugged and proven in operation for a few months.
Next week we talk about Win 10, what it’s for, what’s it missing and how Microsoft plans to make money by giving it away.

While staff makes the argument the hospital is losing $20 million per year and the logical move to stop the bleeding is to shut it down, many critics argue that the economic shortfall is due to terrible management by former CEO Michael Covert and the prior Board of Directors for paying Covert an outrageous salary and bonuse, and allowing themselvers to be manipulated by Covert. Covert is now gone, having taken another job out of state, leaving current CEO Bob Hemker with a terrible debt and little cash. The impact will include an approximate 60 to 75 full-time employeees being laid off with an additonal 80 to 220 parttime staffers being released.
The public, who voted to support a bond issue to help finance the new hospital, had been assured repeatedly that the downtown campus would

Several members of the nursing staff have complained that this is all going way too fast, not leaving sufficient time to discuss and analyze the problem and come up with possible alternatives. Additionally, they argue that now is the wrong time to be shutting down the downtown campus with the flu season approaching. If it must be closed, they argue, do it after flu season, not before. Fatal Collision Kills Two Drivers
The cars slammed into each other in a head-on collision early Saturay morning along Interstate 15 near Gopher Canyon Road, according to California Highway Patrol reports. CHP officers responded at 3:04 a.m. to a report of a traffic collision on southbound lanes of the freeway in northern Escondido, according to dispatchers. A 51-year old Santa Ana man crossed into oncoming traffic and struck the car of a 57-yearold woman from Vista who was driving in the southbound lanes, according to the Medical Examiner’s office. The names of the drivers were not released.
The southbound lanes of the freeway were tied up for almost three hours while the CHP conducted its investigation, which is ongoing at this hour. Full details of this accident will be reported in next week’s issue of The Paper.

Escondido, CA—In a 2002 issue of Neurosurgical Focus, a peerreviewed article was published by a Dr. Michael D. Martin, MD et al. in which the third sentence states: “The disc itself is active tissue that contains significant mechanisms for self-repair.” That article was published by a neurosurgeon and written directly for neurosurgeons.
“The Disc Itself Is Active Tissue...”
So what does that really mean to us? It tells us that the disc itself does have a God-given ability to heal and repair if provided the proper mechanisms for self-healing. There is a specific mechanism inherent in each of the spinal discs called the “pump mechanism of disc nutri-tion” (see Fig 1). When this mechanism is not working properly, the spinal discs will begin to die causing bulges, herniations, and eventually spinal stenosis.
The spinal disc is one of the very few tissues in the body that does not have a direct blood supply for circulation. The only way that the disc gets the circulation of water, oxygen and nutrients for self-repair is via this specific disc pump mechanism. What happens when you decrease cir-culation in any type of tissue, whether it be animal tissue, plant tissue or human tissue? Exactly, it begins to become weak and begins to degenerate.
Symptoms Are NOT The Problem
Now the symptoms of pain, numbness,
brown leaves are the plant’s problem? Of course not, the leaves turning brown is just a condition that is telling you that there is something wrong with the plant. The plant is unhealthy and needs water and nutrients. You could spray paint the leaves green but it just covers up the condition. The underlying problem still exists and will continue to produce brown leaves until you fix the actual problem. and tingling that most experience with bulging, herniated or degenerative discs are NOT the problem. The definition of a symptom: “something that indicates the existence of something else.” It is just like the dashboard of your car telling you that something is wrong (brake lights out, engine needs checked, overheating, etc.) Those lights that appear in your car dash are NOT the problem. You can remove the lights surgically or put a piece of duct tape over the lights but the problem will NOT be fixed...the problem is still present.
Let’s take a look at a plant for example...if the leaves on a plant begin to turn brown, would you say that the
extent of your disc damage for only $70. This examination will consist of a detailed neurological evaluation, extensive orthopedic testing, and a detailed analysis of the findings of your evaluation. He will sit down with you and go over your condition with you in complete detail. You will know exactly what is causing all your pain (or other symptoms).
In your spine, when the pump mechanism of disc nutrition fails, the disc will begin to de-generate and become weak. This weakness in the disc is what produces the bulging, herniated, and degenerative discs.
