by Bruce Krider Editor’s Note: Bruce Krider is a member of the Board of Directors for Palomar Pomerado Health and is its immediate Past Chairman. He is also a former hospital administrator and presently serves as an international consultant to hospitals. He is also, as you shall see, a lover of animals, particularly dogs. In addition, he writes a mighty good story. February 24, 2004: I left San Marcos, California, for my 5th trip to China on business. This trip was to be different. This time, I was scheduled to speak at two separate conferences on western hospital management, one in Shanghai at a conference on hospital management at Ruijun Hospital and another in Wenzhou at a conference at the South Asia International Hotel. Following the conferences I was off to Zhuhai for a day, then to Haiko on Hainan Island on other business. My partner, Edward Chen, met me at the Pudong International Airport in Shanghai. The weather was telling at that point. Gray skies, chilly though not “cold” and threatening rain most of the time. On more than one day, we would be caught in downpours which might have had something to do with generating a cold at the end of the trip. The hotel was one of the old and better known in Shanghai, the Jin Jiang Hotel, a 5 star hotel, once the host to international visitors and diplomats. My job at the conference was to provide Chinese healthcare professionals a glimpse of western hospital management. That is pretty hard to do in 20 minutes with breaks for translators but I gave some highlights and at the The Paper - 760.747.7119

Page 2 - June 28, 2012 ‘The Spy and the Puppy’ Cont. from Page 1 venture out. In Wenzhou it’s a bit tougher to communicate with cab drivers because they are not used to driving for those who don’t speak their own language as in Beijing or Shanghai. One of the translator/medical residents assigned to our group was Yu Shuru, a 28 year old resident in neurology. Shuru spoke not only English due to her studies in Australia but also the local dialect and Mandarin as well. She was the ultimate translator and tour guide. Shuru and I were walking down a major shopping street and we noticed a little commotion ahead. This 20-something young man, cigarette dangling from his mouth was selling a puppy. He was holding it. Not affectionately, just holding it. Then, all of a sudden, the vendor just threw the pup into the midst of a busy walkway. Startled pedestrians of all ages were nearly falling trying not to step on this tiny puppy.
Give Us This Day Our Daily Chuckle
This week, a compendium of wit, wisdom and neat stuff you can tell at parties. Enjoy! The Irish Railway
The puppy, startled, could not have been away from its mother for the first time since birth for more than an hour and was now trying to figure out what to do in this new, overwhelming and bewildering situation which it had never seen. First going this way, then that way, trying to avoid the shoppers as much as they were trying to avoid harming it. Our guess was that the puppy was about a month old.
I handed the puppy to Shuru and said to the puppy, “Here Pup, go to your Mommy.” I asked her if she could find a home for the puppy. She said, “yes.”
I stayed in the lobby of the hotel with my new relative and through the window walls of the hotel watched Shuru run across the street to get a small carton of milk.
I thought, “Great, a good outcome to an otherwise potentially bad ending.” (Little did I know what was in store for us.)
Milk in hand, we went up to my hotel room to feed the puppy. I got down one of the coffee cups from the in-room coffee service set up and Shuru squirted about half the contents into the cup. (If you look very closely to the right, the puppy is watching the milk being squeezed into the cup and is licking her lips.)
Shuru said, “Are you sure?’ I said, “Sure.” She asked how much the puppy was. The vendor said, “300 RMB,” about $36 for the puppy.
As we were walking away, I watched the vendor go back to the side of the street and produce another puppy from a burlap sack and thought, “Oh Jesus, he’s got the whole litter in there.” Well, I really was in no position to do anything with a litter of puppies, leaving the following day. The realization and the futility of it that this one little puppy was but the tip of the iceberg made me sick.
Well, that was “one hungry puppy.” She drank most of the milk, the cup being half as big as the puppy herself. Having accomplished the first feeding, we began to think about what would come next (out the other end), so I went down to the lobby to buy a newspaper in case the new pup had to “do anything.” We waited a bit for any sign of progress that way but no luck.
She turned to me and said, ”No, Bruce, its too much, He wants 300 RMB.” I said, “I don’t care.” I had a U.S. twenty dollar bill, a few hundred
We took the puppy back to the hotel lobby and Shuru went out to get some milk. After all, God knows when the puppy had last eaten. So,
In the meantime, we played with the puppy who was

If you will refer to the Bible and the Book of David, 9th Chapter, you will find that Balaam rode to town on his ass. That .... Gentlemen, is something I have not been able to do on your train in the last two years!
I said to Shuru, “I’m going to buy the puppy.” I was leaving Wenzhou in a day and did not know what I was going to do with a puppy but I did not like the way this was going. I just felt really concerned for the puppy. I thought the first thing which needed to be done is to eliminate an impending disaster.
The following is purportedly an actual exchange of correspondence between a customer and the Irish Railway Company.

‘The Spy and the Puppy’ Cont. from Page 2 playful but cautious and would run around exploring and sniffing. Then she would come over and lick your hand or try to lick us in the face, as puppies often do. Shuru would hold her and pet her. The puppy seemed to accept that new affection with little difficulty. We were getting REAL attached to this little one. Shuru’s friend, a policewoman was with us and as it got to be about 6 pm, I suggested that it was getting late and I should not keep them. I would liked to have played a little more and dote over the pup but I needed to be considerate of my new friends and their lives. After all, I had just presented them with a task they had not been counting on. Shuru said she would find a good place for the puppy and we thought we would talk the next day. ANOTHER DAY: I was on another group excursion the next day. Our group went to a very pretty mountainous area to the north and spent the day. I had expected to see Shuru as an interpreter but she was not there; the hospital had sent a different interpreter. That day, Shuru had taken our puppy to her father’s factory where there was another 2-month old puppy they were taking care of. Great, instant puppy friends. Not only that but there was a nice outdoor area where the dogs could play and be comfortable. I did not hear from Shuru for a day. The following day however, I got an e-mail from Shuru. She said, “Our daughter” did not eat at all yesterday and she looks very sick. “What now?” I thought. We had been too lucky. Something was not right but what could it be? Was the milk bad? Did the other puppy get too rough with her? Shuru took the puppy to the veterinarian office across from her apartment. He told her that the pup was very ill and may not make it but it would certainly have to stay hospitalized. If she made it the next 24-48 hours she would probably be OK. Otherwise, it did not look
good. That night I said a little prayer for a little dog. “God you can move mountains, so could you just help out this one little puppy?” I felt like there was a reason that we happened upon the street vendor. I had to go to Zhuhai the next day and did not have internet access so I did not communicate with Shuru, although I could have called her on my mobile phone but I figured I would just wait until later when I got to Haiko when I would be able to get online. Maybe I was afraid of what I might hear. I was in my hotel room the next day in Haiko when I got an SMS text message on my phone about 12 noon. It read, “I’m sorry, Bruce. She’s dying. I am with her now.” I immediately called Shuru on her mobile phone. Shuru quickly answered. The background noise was clearly that of a vet office (barking dogs). I said, “Shuru, its Bruce, are you sure?” She said, “Yes.” I said “Is she suffering?” She said, “Yes she is. She is breathing hard and with a lot of difficulty.” With a kind of hollow feeling and a heavy heart, I had the thought that there is only one other thing possible we can do to help this little creature at this point. I said “Can we at least give her a shot and spare her more suffering?” (The November prior I had to put our pet in California to sleep and now I was doing it again.) Shuru said, “Yes.” I said, “OK, then, let’s do it.” She said, “Alright, I will. Sorry, Bruce.” I said, “Shuru, I just appreciate you being there. Otherwise she would be dying by herself in a garbage pile somewhere. At least she can feel you petting her head and feel not quite so alone.” Shuru told me that there was another puppy from the same litter in the vet’s office going through the same thing. Whatever happened was happening to all those puppies. We were both crushed. By the way, I wasn’t dealing with a lay person. Shuru is
not only an interpreter, she is a physician, and in fact a general internist doing a fellowship in neurology. She is highly compassionate and loves animals besides. The next day in Haiko about 8 pm, Shuru and I met online on MSN Messenger and chatted about the previous week. She told me something very interesting and sad. Her veterinarian said that 75% of the puppies sold by street vendors will die in this same way. What happens is that these vendors dye the new puppies different colors in an attempt to make them more cute or sellable. Unfortunately, the dye they use kills the puppies in a few days. It is so toxic that the puppies’ young systems cannot handle the toxicity. We imagine that their livers which try to cleanse the blood become overwhelmed and fail. Then the other systems shut down and the pups die a miserable death going into respiratory distress and then, ultimately, cardiac failure unless the end is hastened by medical compassion. Shuru and I keep in touch almost daily via email. This unhappy event galvanized us both to do something, whatever we can to change this situation. Our plan is to suggest to local and province governments a framework which would result in significant income to those governments through vendor fees and registration requirements to sell domestic pets but include neutering requirements and the involvement of the Chinese veterinary profession, which I am sure they will support. As a hospital administrator and consultant for the past thirty plus years, one of my best skills is organizational development. If I can use that background to help orchestrate the development of a framework which will benefit everyone except the individual street vendors, I think we have a chance at making some real headway. I am also encouraged by the movement Jill Robinson has been able to achieve in her work with Chinese governmental units and the Chinese academic and science community. I believe the majority of people in China are of the same mindset and only need a fresh set of eyes or a slightly
different mindset to improve the way various things are approached. Do I feel a little bit like Don Quixote? Yes, I do but not enough to dissuade me from trying to prevent large numbers of month-old puppies from being routinely poisoned and sentenced to an agonizing death. Bruce Krider San Marcos, CA firstname.lastname@example.org Editor’s Note: Following receipt of Bruce’s story, we did a bit more searching online to find out more information about this type of activity. According to the pet-purveying street sellers, different colored dogs fetch different prices. A white poodle, for instance, would be priced at around 700RMB, a reddish coat will up that price to 1000RMB, and a “Teddy” sells for even higher - at 1500RMB. So in order to make sure all the dogs are “teddies,” they dye them. “At around 11:10am, Mr. Wei and his wife put on their gloves, which had already been dyed to a purplish color from their natural yellow, and began preparing the toothbrush, dye paste, and a pot of hot water. After, Mr. Wei entered a 10-squaremeter room, I could already detect the acrid smell from within. At 12:30pm, I managed to infiltrate the premises to see what was going on. At that time, Mr. Wei's wife was working on a white poodle puppy. She used a toothbrush to color the puppy's face before lowering him into the vat of dye and hot water. Because the water temperature was very high, the little puppy kept screaming. She moved the puppy around to get all its fur wet with dye, blow dried it, and then began smoothing the color out. After the coat was dry, she began the process again. By this point, the puppy had stopped struggling. If Mr. Wei's wife saw that the water was getting lighter, she would take out another bottle of dye and add more. She said "our place's chemicals are the best, one dye will last roughly a month." ‘The Spy and the Puppy’ Cont. on Page 5
Page 4 - June 28, 2012 Escondido Police Officers Agree to Terms With City After several months of sometimes bitter negotiations the city of Escondido and its police officers have agreed to a new labor contract. Details were not available as of press time concerning he details of the new contract. The city’s focus has been on shrinking pensions for new hires, questions of restoring benefit cuts made during the recession and whether the city would restore pay hikes based on years of service, which are called "steps." Council members already agreed to the contract earlier this month in a session closed to the public, a move that prompted union officials to call for an online ratification vote by officers that ended at 5 p.m. Monday. It is presumed that last night’s (Wednesday) council approval was merely a matter of form. Mayor Sam Abed said he was pleased that officers had

Local News approved the deal and that peace between the city and the union would be great news. Since January 1, Escondido's roughly 160 police officers have been working under the terms of an expired two-year contract. Some EPOA (Escondido Police Officer’s Assocation) expressed optimism in March that city officials would feel pressure to make concessions to the union, after a firestorm of controversy at City Hall when it was revealed that City Manager Clay Phillips had quietly given large raises to several top managers making annual salaries over $100,000.

Escondido Chamber of Commerce Taps Katherine Zimmer As New CEO Katherine Zimmer, ACE, has been named the new chief executive of the Escondido Chamber of Commerce, succeeding Harvey Mitchell, who served in that post since 2003.
Those pay hikes prompted the police union and other city employee groups to protest outside City Hall.
Prior to joining the Escondido Chamber of Commerce , Ms. Zimmer had been vice president of marketing and communications for the Napa, CA. Chamber of Commerce, a position she has held since 2005.
The EPOA also argued the city could be more flexible in their negotiations in that the city's sales tax revenue had bounced back during the past two years. The city's annual sales tax revenue fell from $28.7 million to $20.6 million
In her seven years with the Napa Chamber, Ms. Zimmer was on point for the renovation of the Napa Chamber’s brand and marketing direction, including development of a new logo and brand strategy, incorporating strategic

Since puppies aren't made to withstand large doses of chemicals, they are usually very unhealthy by the time they get to market. To perk them up, the sellers said, they feed them cough medicine. Puppies doped up on cough medicine can stay active and playful for about ten hours before they collapse. While this news report is from Beijing, illegal dog sellers are all over China - including in Shanghai. If you're thinking of adopting a new pet (or know of anyone who is) make sure you're going through a reputable seller. Even better, consider giving organizations like SCAA a call. The worst thing you can do for yourself or dogkind - is pick up a puppy from some guy selling them off the street. Even here in America, it’s best to NOT buy from pet stores as they often get their dogs from Puppy Mills in the midwest; nor from backyard breeders. Better to see your local rescure organization or Humane Society.

This is how a Town Hall Meeting should be conducted . . . with an emphasis on respectful participation, sharing time equally, and attentive listening. In short, a model for civil discourse.

‘Local News’ Cont. from Page 4 ports the creation of a strong local economy.” Daley Ranch Trails Reopened All trails within Daley Ranch in Escondido have been reopened following the completion of the repaving of roads surrounding the Ranch House. The work was performed by Asphalt & Concrete Enterprises, Inc., of Santee, and was completed approximately two weeks ahead of schedule and under budget. The project may not have been completed ahead of schedule had it not been for Escondido businessman George Weir of George W. Weir Asphalt Construction, Inc., whose “above and beyond” efforts allowed the project to be completed in a timely manner. During the last evening of construction, the final load of asphalt was being delivered at approximately 7:00 p.m. when the dump truck inconveniently broke a drive axle at the bot-
tom of La Honda Drive. Since the asphalt plant had closed by then there was no possibility of the contractor finishing the job that evening and his other commitments for the next few days unfortunately would have prevented him from finishing the work quickly. However, Project Manager Bud Oliveira contacted George Weir to see if by any chance he had approximately 10 tons of asphalt still on the road. Within 45 minutes George Weir personally escorted his truck to the site and the other contractor was able to complete the project.

asked David Salinas, owner of San Diego Puppy if any of his pups came from these states. He hesitated and then said, “that information is only given out to the buyer if they ask.”
San Diego Puppy is located at 5827 Mission Gorge Rd. Salinas argues that they ‘carefully select’ their breeders (though they will not tell where their breeders are located) and that their breeders are regulated by the USDA. USDA has acknowledged they do not have the manpower to properly inspect and regulate dog breeders in the states cited above.
‘Man About Town’ Cont. from Page 4 We had stopped by to outline plans as to what we could do to save even more animals and just happened to take a tour of the facility. You know the old saying . . . “you don’t pick a dog; the dog picks you . . .?” Well, there was a lovely white miniature poodle that was jumping up and down and looking me square in the eye, saying “Take me! take me! Take me home!” Such was not to be. The dog was a recently arrived stray and, by law, they have to be held for five days to allow the owner to claim the animal, before they are moved into the “adoptable dog” category.
It is estimated that 300,000 500,000 puppies are sold annually at petshops nation-

The San Diego Animal Defense Team claims credit for having helped to shut down three target stores and observing the home of owner Jon Le, the of those three target stores, which were raided on March 27 and all animals confiscated. Now, the owner of Puppy Stars, Pet Place and Naedeen Puppies was arrested on June 19. Johnson Le, 28, is being held on suspicion of four felony counts and 10 misdemeanor counts of animal abuse, as well as more than a dozen violations of the state's Health and Safety Code, according to the San Diego Humane Society.

Rancho Bernardo • Mayor Jerry Sanders When you live in a city as beautiful as San Diego, it’s second nature to care about the environment. I learned just how much our residents care about the environment when I saw the results of a pilot program our Household Hazardous Waste Team developed to help San Diegans recycle harmful materials. Residents had expressed concerns about the inconvenience of properly disposing of household batteries and fluorescent bulbs. To do so, they had to drive to our household hazardous waste facility at the Miramar Landfill. The HazMat Team decided to conduct a pilot project where residents could take these added materials to the used oil
recycling events. This pilot project has been a huge success. We have increased our collection of batteries and fluorescent light bulbs by almost 10 tons. This comes on top of our announcement last year that San Diegans recycle general waste at a rate of 68 percent. This was in addition to the thousands of gallons of waste oil and antifreeze that HazMat collected on their own in the 2012 fiscal year. The HazMat team took in 5,730 gallons of used motor oil in fiscal year 2012, compared to 3,950 gallons in fiscal year 2011. I not only commend city staff for their work, but thank the residents for participating in this worthwhile and highly successful program.
Vista • Mayor Judy Ritter One of my favorite events during the month of July is The “Red, White and Boom” fireworks display that takes place in Brengle Terrace Park on July 4. Celebrate Independence Day in grand Vista style! Festivities will be held at the Moonlight Amphitheatre within Brengle Terrace Park. Events include live music and one of the biggest fireworks displays in San Diego County. This is a great opportunity to enjoy a picnic and entertainment with family and friends. Schedule: 1 pm: Amphitheatre opens. 4:30 pm: Live music begins on the Moonlight Amphitheatre
stage. 7:30 pm: The Fabulous Ultratones perform. 9 pm: Fireworks light up the sky! Information to Know: Food and non-alcoholic beverages are permitted inside the Moonlight Amphitheatre. Alcoholic beverages may not be brought inside the Amphitheatre. Beer and wine will be sold at the Artisan Café within the Amphitheatre. Admission: $5 admission per to the Amphitheatre (* children five and under are free). (Free admission if you are staying in Brengle Terrace Park and not in the Amphitheatre). $15 for parking at Brengle Terrace Park and $5 for parking at Vista High School (includes shuttle service 1 pm to 11 pm).
San Marcos • Mayor Jim Desmond Keeping San Marcos Moving As the City continues its efforts to keep San Marcos motorists moving and improve the flow of traffic, the Regional Arterial Management System (RAMS) project is something to talk about. With support from the San Diego Association of Governments and participation of our neighboring communities, the purpose of the RAMS project is to optimize traffic flow across the San Diego region through a coordinated management system for traffic signal systems across our neighboring jurisdictions. Currently, the County, cities, and Caltrans manage traffic signals and
systems independently of each other. By designing common software applications for traffic engineers and signal system managers, RAMS offers the opportunity for local agencies to coordinate and integrate existing traffic signals and management activities at critical inter-jurisdictional corridors and roadways. Agencies will also be able to view signal status, controlled time, timing and coordination information, and signals from our neighbors. In other words, this project gets San Marcos systems talking with other local systems to time traffic signals and get you moving more efficiently on the road. For more information on the city’s transportation issues visit the utilities and transportation section of the city’s website, www.san-marcos.net.
Oceanside • Mayor Jim Wood Summer @ ArtQuest Registration for the Oceanside Museum of Art’s (OMA) program “Summer @ ArtQuest” is now happening. This fun and interactive introduction to art in a museum setting is open to children 8-11 years of age. The summer art camp will offer a four day session where children will view artwork from current and past exhibitions held at OMA, with art styles ranging from representational to abstract. Art education instructors will teach children how to use a variety of media such as painting, drawing, sculpture and graphic
design. Not only will the children be involved in both individual and group projects, but they will produce their own art exhibit to be viewed at the end of their session. Two sessions will be held: July 1013 and July 17-20. To register for these outstanding classes at OMA (located at 704 Pier View Way), please contact Julia @ OMA at (760) 435-3728 or by visiting the website at www.OMA-Online.Org. A sincere personal thank you goes to Pam & Paul Kelly, Rudy & Elizabeth Van Hunnick and several anonymous donors for helping to sponsor this worthwhile project for our youth!

Nome and Paul Van Middlesworth thecomputerfactoryltd.com The Computer Factory The Apple Phenomenon Technology or Snake Oil: Part II
To understand where Apple is going we need understand how it got where it is today. Last week we followed Apple’s financial history from its beginning in the late 1970’s to 2004. In 1985 after years of stagnation, Apple management felt that Jobs was taking the company in the wrong direction and stripped him of all influence. Jobs resigned. Without Jobs between 1985 and 1996 Apple grew from $1 billion to over $11 billion. Jobs returned in 1996. What Steve Jobs was doing during those twelve years is an interesting part of the story. Jobs left with $70 million and a half dozen Apple engineers to
Constitutional Amendment to Improve Budget Process Is our budget process flawed? It is and is in need of reform. That is why I have introduced SCA 2 to provide a specific outline of reforms and an opportunity for legislators to redesign our current process. SCA 2 is a constitutional amendment that requires the first year of each two-year session to be dedicated to producing a budget. The resulting budget would serve for two years. This change would give the legislature enough time to focus on the budget process. The legislature spends too much time on insignificant bills, and not enough time on our most pressing problem: California’s finances.
form NeXT. They planned to develop powerful computers for education and industry. Jobs located his start-up in a luxurious business park, spending lavishly on interior design, art and furnishings. The venture was largely unsuccessful but they did develop an operating system that eventually resulted in Apple buying Jobs and NeXT in Dec 1996 for over $400 million. Jobs got his 50% as shares in Apple. When Jobs left Apple he also bought Pixar, Inc from Industrial Light and Magic. Owner George Lucas had become cash strapped in an expensive divorce settlement and sold Pixar to Jobs as distressed merchandise for a paltry $5 million. Jobs never got involved in management at Pixar. Over the years it evolved from being a graphics workstation maker to being a graphics software developer. After 10 years of losses, Jobs was looking for a way to get rid of Pixar when Pixar signed a modest contract to produce three films for Disney. When “Toy Story” became a smash hit. Jobs started paying attention. He took Pixar public while maintaining 50% of the company. Jobs had already returned to Apple when Disney bought Pixar in 2004 for $7 billion in stock. Jobs became Disney’s biggest shareholder
In addition, SCA 2 establishes that legislation unrelated to the budget could be introduced only in the second year, excluding legislation that promotes job creation. As job creation is the foundation for economic recovery, any bill that would provide job growth could be introduced in either year. I have authored SCA 2 to establish needed guidelines for the legislative process and to ensure that we craft sound budgets and promote economic growth. Senator Mark Wyland represents the people of the 38th Senate District, which includes San Diego (Rancho Bernardo, 4S Ranch, Rancho Penasquitos, Carmel Valley) and Solana Beach, Encinitas, Carlsbad, Rancho Santa Fe, San Marcos, Escondido, Vista the south Orange County cities of San Clemente and San Juan Capistrano.
overnight. Jobs took control of Apple in 1997. It was not an overnight success. Under Jobs leadership the company continued seven more years of no growth and marginal profitability, but change was in the wind. Early on Jobs and Bill Gates buried the hatchet with Microsoft’s $150 million investment and a joint development agreement. In late 2001 Apple released the iPod and opened the iTunes Music Store. In 2005 Jobs did the unthinkable. After years of scoffing at the AMD and Intel X86 CPU architecture while touting Apple’s IBM/Motorola designed “G” CPUs, Jobs abruptly announce that Apple computers would switch to Intel X86 CPUs.

Charter Schools Are Good For Education Even in the face of California’s constrained fiscal environment, education funding should always be the state’s top budget priority. Sacramento is poised to spend $64.1 billion on California’s K-12 public schools in fiscal year 201112, with many contending that it is not acceptable to spend less. What is completely unacceptable is spending this kind of money and denying parents the opportunity to send their child to a school of their choice. Yet that is what Sacramento Democrats are trying to do. During the past six years that I have served in the State Assembly (three as Vice-
screamed that a “Mac would be no more than a Dell with a different operating system.” That didn’t bother Jobs at all because he had a different vision for Apple. In 2007 Jobs changed the name of the company from Apple Computer Inc. to Apple Inc. Apple was no longer just a computer company. Apple stood on the threshold of the most dramatic sustained growth in modern corporate history. Young Steve Jobs over 20 years before had laid the foundation for the modern Apple miracle in a stroke of genius. Apples iconic 1984 Super Bowl ad would provide the springboard for Apple success in ways unimagined at the time. To be continued-
Chair of the Education Committee), anti-charter advocates have introduced 28 bills to make it more difficult to open or operate a charter school. This year alone, they introduced 16 bills in an attempt to saddle charter schools with burdensome regulations. Their goal is to make charter schools indistinguishable from traditional public schools. Ensuring school choice should not be a partisan issue. There has been an unfortunate, but obvious campaign waged against charter schools and parental choice by those who can best be described as anti-choice. What our students need now is more choice and more pro-charter education measures in Sacramento.

Letters to the Editor The GOD Show Good morning! I read with interest your church reviews and noted there didn't appear to be any reviews on Catholic churches--maybe because my husband calls me a Baptist Catholic. (I converted in the sense that I joined the Catholic church--having attending mass since our marriage almost 46 years ago. I still sing "Baptist" hymns however when home. I still pray my own unscripted prayers. So I was eagerly waiting to see your review of a priest and mass. I so enjoy The Paper. Thanks for giving the humor-chuckles. Keep up the good work! Gerri Balli North San Diego County Editor’s Note: In my first draft of the story I had commented on the fact that I had not included Catholic churches. I kinda wish now I'd left that discussion in the story. Basically, I pointed out that the research project I had undertaken was not so much focused on the churches themselves, but the individual pastors and how many of them delivered sermons that were inspiring, motivational, humorous, dynamic, and, sometimes, charismatic. My experiences with the Catholic church had been that the church conducted its services following a long established routine of liturgy, ceremony and ritual and the priests, generally, were not known for giving motivational and/or entertaining messages, but homilies. One possible local exception was Father Rafferty, formerly of St. Timothy's. I heard him speak at a Rotary meeting and he was brilliant. I spoke with a fellow Kiwanian who knows Father Rafferty well and he
said, "yes, he's a brilliant speaker . . . but he doesn't know when to stop. I've told him several times that he is a great orator but he needs to wind down his sermons after 30 minutes.” (They were close friends so my friend could be direct with him). Father Rafferty, I understand, has since transferred to another parish. I have published an in-depth cover story on Baha'i, at least three cover stories on Mormons (not so much on the church itself as adventures and/or historical essays on their pioneer days). Eventually, I may do an in-depth story on Islam and Buddhism. Don't want to do too much on religion as I don't want our readers to think of us as a religious paper (which we most definitely are not). Thanks for writing. Appreciate your views. You keep reading . . . we'll keep writing. Best. lyle e davis editor/publisher The Paper Typos, Typos, Typos Volume 43- No. 23 June 07, 2012 had an article that was absolutely hilarious and well written. Man About Town on page 10 second column was written backwards and I didn't realize it until I got to the part that says,"...but the journey was almost as great as arriving at the destination." I couldn't help laughing when I noticed it was backwards and had no trouble reading it. Thanks guys, you're great. Dovey Moreno San Diego County Editor’s Note: Wish we could claim credit for being terribly creative. Truth of the matter is . . . I somehow hit the wrong key on my software program and it reversed the text on one column. I did not catch it on final proof before sending it to the printer. But thanks for a convenient and creative excuse. I’ll try to remember that and use it the next time I goof up. Letters to the Editor are always welcome. Try to keep them to 250 words or less; send them to: email@example.com
‘Commentary’ Cont. from Page 5 to be a two-way conversation. It can’t be a lecture and an adoption of a position of “I’m right and you’re all wrong.” To decree that participants cannot applaud is also, frankly, silly. The participants applauded at last week’s meeting and not only did the planet not spin off its axis . . . people seemed to feel better for it. Had Mayor Sam and/or the other councilmembers attended, I do not believe there would have been booing. If there had been, Kent Davy would have shut it down immediately. A word, however, to those who protest the present council majority: knock it off with the insulting signs and posters and the confrontational postures. You may have a constitutional right to display signs, and to make angry statements under the Freedom of Speech doctrine but there is such a thing as common sense as well.
That he is firm in his conviction, there can be no doubt. But is he so firm that he can’t examine both sides of an issue and be open to discussion? We’ll see. We hope this has all been a learning experience for Mayor Sam . . . and for his council majority that have, to this point, generally backed Abed’s positions. Remember, this is Mayor Sam Abed’s first year as Mayor. He’s still learning the job. He’ll likely make a few more mistakes, errors in jdugment. But, on balance, he’ll probably do a lot more in good decisions and good judgments than bad. When he makes the good ones, we’ll be the first ones to applaud . . . but if we disagree with him, we’ll certainly not be bashful about letting him know . . . as well as our readers, of our not so humble opinon. Let’s move forward.
If the protestors will conduct themselve in a civil manner, it’s entirely possible the Council will respond in kind. Try it. It just might work. There were folks who presented positions and argument for issues with which I, and perhaps others, did not agree. But they had their say. And they were not booed. They were applauded. A good object lesson for the Escondido City Council. Overall, The Paper believes Mayor Sam and the Council have done a good job with the city. There were, in our opinion, two major errors in judgment. The Clay Phillips management pay raises, and the shutting down of discussion during the Town Hall meeting in May. Aside from that, Abed has done a good job. He’s balanced the budget, as he promised he would. For two years now. He works hard and has developed contacts at the local, state and federal level that may be of assistance to Escondido.
President Theodore Roosevelt 'In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American and nothing but an American ... There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag ... We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language ... and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.'

The sales clerk hesitated a bit, then said, "Please don't take this the wrong way, but gowns of that nature are considered more appropriate for brides who are being married the first time - for those who are a bit more innocent, if you know what I mean? Perhaps ivory or sky blue would be nice?"
'You ok?' she says.

"Well," replied the customer, a little peeved at the clerk's directness, "I can assure you that a white gown would be quite appropriate. Believe it or not, despite all my marriages, I remain as innocent as a first-time bride. You see, my first husband was so excited about our wedding, he died as we were checking into our hotel. My second husband and I got into such a terrible fight in the limo on our way to our honeymoon that we had that wedding annulled immediately and never spoke to each other again."

It was a fine spring day in his new Texas mission parish. He walked to the window of his bedroom to get a deep breath of the beautiful day outside. He then noticed there was a jackass lying dead in the middle of his front lawn. He promptly called the local police station. The conversation went like this: "Good morning. This is Sergeant Jones. How might I help you?" "And the best of the day te yerself. This is Father O'Malley at St. Ann 's Catholic Church. There's a jackass a-lying dead in me front lawn and would ye be so kind as to send a couple o'yer lads to take care of the matter?" Sergeant Jones, considering himself to be quite a wit, replied

You have to love a nation that celebrates its independence every July 4, not with a parade of guns, tanks, and soldiers who file by the White House in a show of strength and muscle, but with family picnics where kids throw Frisbees, the potato salad gets iffy, and the flies die from happiness. You may think you have overeaten, but it is patriotism. ~Erma Bombeck
