by lyle e davis We’ve all seen the movie versions of the wild, wild west. Some of those movies were reasonably close to truth, taking into consideration poetic license and all. (Poetic license = changing the real story to suit yourself rather than tell the whole truth). Fact is, the wild, wild west was just that. Wild. You didn’t see a whole lot of genteel gentlemen, decked out in the latest fashions and sipping on Scotch and sodas. Nor did you see a lot of fair young maidens, dressed in the finest of millinery. At least not at first. Oh, to be sure, there were women in the wild, wild, west. Particularly after gold was discovered and the nation sent a lot of its emigrants westward in search of gold and other riches. Women, as we have all learned, are pretty dadblamed smart. They follow the money. A certain number of adventurous and somewhat open minded women, not all bound up in church discipline and teachings, would head for the west and entertain the frontiersmen. For a price.

We will look at what the wild, wild west was really like . . . before the movie and television writers got ahold of it. From the pen of writer/historian, Art Saborio, of San Diego: The first saloons to open were not the typical saloons that we all know from the movies and books. They were mostly tents or a square wooden structure with tent material thrown over the top. The material was enough to keep the rain off the heads of their costumers. The floors were not made of wood. Tent saloons never had floors The Paper - 760.747.7119
of any type. If it rained the floors were muddy and if it was dry they were dusty. The only thing the early saloon offered was whiskey and a place to sit and rest. The first whiskey ever served in a saloon was not the fine whiskey that New Yorker's or those from Chicago would sip. This stuff was raw and made right in the camp or town. The simple ingredients included
raw alcohol, sugar burnt and a little pouch chewing tobacco. Whiskey with terrible names like "Coffin Varnish", "Tarantula Juice", "Red Eye" and others were common among the early saloons. Later the word "Firewater" would be used to describe Whiskey. It took on the name during trading with Indians. To explain what Whiskey was to the Indians, the cowboy
would pour it over the fire to show its potency. With a high enough proof, Whiskey acted like gasoline on the fire. Soon firewater was the name of the drink. Beer was not as common as whiskey, yet there were those that drank it. Since pasteurization was not invented yet, a cowboy had to take his beer warm and drink it quick. If not, the beer would get warmer

The two seasoned veterans had previously worked in many of the California and Nevada mining camps. The miners were so pleased to see the women that they lined up along the street and cheered.
‘The Real Wild West . . ’ Cont. from Page 1 and go flat. Whiskey kept its taste and potency no matter the temperature. It was not until 1880′s that Adolphus Busch invented artificial refrigeration and methods of pasteurization to the brewing process. Soon after, Budweiser launched as a U.S. national brand. In the late 1820′s, Bent's Fort, Colorado, opened what we know as the first saloon in the west. There were a few little towns which already had cantinas, but they did not compare to saloons that would soon spread like wild fire throughout the west. Striking gold was a big indicator that a saloon would pop-up in that town. In 1848, Santa Barbara, California, only had one cantina. Yet after the discovery of gold, the town soon grew to 30 saloons. Towns like Livingston, Montana, with its 3,000 residents, had no less than 33 saloons. Back in those days, it was easy to open a business. Innovation and growth was on the incline. Saloons were profitable and with a large customer base.

A thriving industry in the camp dominated almost entirely by men, in 1876, it was estimated that approximately 90% of women of the camp were "painted ladies.” The “girls” of the Wild West Kathy Reimer’s “Legends of America” website: One of the wildest of the wild, wild west was not so much west as it was north . . . in Dakota Territory. "Working girls” in Deadwood, South Dakota, were as prominent a fixture as that of the many miners in the bustling boom camp. Though these "ladies” most likely arrived almost as soon as the first man, the first record of prostitutes coming to Deadwood was in July 1876.

Irene Love was just one of many "working girls" in Deadwood Photo courtesy Adams Museum forced into prostitution in order to support themselves. In other cases, such as that of Al Swearengen and the Gem Saloon, unsuspecting women were lured to Deadwood with the promise of respectable employment, only to find themselves stranded without money or means and without other options, virtually enslaved in the dance halls or brothels. ‘The Real Wild West . .’ Cont. on Page 3
The woman was a bit shocked at the implication, but then thought "that's really not so bad." When her two teenage daughters returned from school, the bird saw them and said,"New house, new madam, new girls." The girls and the woman were a bit offended, But then they began to laugh about the situation, considering how and where the parrot had been raised. Moments later, the woman's husband, Keith, came home from work. The bird looked at him and said, "Hi Keith." ••••• Country Wisdom
Country fences need to be horse high, pig tight and bull strong. Don't corner something meaner than you. Don't go hunting with a fellow named Chug-A-Lug. Don't name a pig you plan to eat. Don't sell your mule to buy a plow. Every path has some puddles. Forgive your enemies. It messes with their heads. It don't take a very big person to carry a grudge. Lazy and Quarrelsome are ugly sisters. Life is not about how fast you run, or how high you climb, but how well you bounce. Life is simpler when you plow around the stumps. Man is the only critter who feels the need to label things as flowers or weeds. Meanness don't happen overnight. Mortgaging a future crop is saddling a wobbly colt. Most of the stuff people worry about never happens. Never lay an angry hand on a kid or an animal, it just ain't helpful. The best sermons are lived, not preached. To know how country folks are doing, look at their barns, not their houses. Trouble with a milk cow is she won't stay milked. Two can live as cheap as one if one don't eat. When you wallow with pigs, expect

immediately spotted a large, beautiful parrot. There was a sign on the cage that said $20.00. "Why so little?" she asked the pet store owner. The owner looked at her and said,"Look, I should tell you first that this bird used to live in a house of prostitution, and sometimes it says some pretty vulgar stuff." The woman thought about this, but decided she had to have the bird anyway. She took it home and hung the bird's cage up in her living room, and waited for it to say something. The bird looked around the room, then at her, and said, "New house, new madam."

‘The Real Wild West . .’ Cont. from Page 2 These many women not only charged for sexual favors but also hustled drinks, sold "dances,” and were sometimes stage performers. Largely confined to the Badlands district at the north end of town, saloons and theaters usually occupied the first floors, while the brothels operated upstairs. By the turn of the century, the Badlands occupied an entire block of two-story buildings on the west side of Main Street. Often these women faced violence and turned to drugs and alcohol as a means of escape. Opium, laudanum, and morphine, with laudanum being the most often used. Unfortunately, doctors often started the "girls” use of the drug to reduce the number of calls he would receive. At other times, it was their employers who got them started on the drugs, in order to better control them. Suicides were common in the camp and Dr. F.S. Howe, the only doctor in Deadwood during its earliest days, always carried his stomach pump when summoned to the Badlands in the middle of the night.
vide a pinch or two of dust for female companionship. In the beginning, when "services” were not so available, the "pinches” were bigger. Rumors of the time suggested that the youngest and most beautiful girls sometimes received as much as three ounces of gold dust. Before permanent buildings were erected, much of the business was conducted inside tents or covered wagons, but it didn’t take the Madams long to establish regular brothels where the women could work. Obviously it was the Madams who really made the money from the 40% share she took from the girls, but even more so, from the sale of liquor. Visitors to the "house” were "expected” to buy a drink, as well as purchasing another for any "lady” that they might be spending time with.
might be doing. Only briefly did they close, in 1952, when an ambitious young attorney and newcomer to Deadwood was elected as States Attorney. He soon raided the houses and closed them down; however, not only did his move fail in furthering his ambitions, the houses were reopened just six months later due to a technicality. When he ran for reelection soon after the abortive attempt, he lost. For another 28 years the brothels continued to prosper until 1980 when the FBI raided them. The alleged cause were rumors that girls as young as 14 were being "sold” by biker gangs. After grabbing the girls and placing them in vans, the authorities then padlocked the four remaining open brothels. But, the people of Deadwood were stumped as to the brothels' closings, asking the proverbial question, "Why?” To this, the Deadwood police chief replied
For her share of the take, the Madam provided room, board, and "protection” to her girls; however, the women were required to pay for their own clothing and personal necessities.
Having little protection from the law or anyone else, the women were often abused by their customers and employers. On one occasion, a Gem Theatre prostitute named Tricksie, shot a man through the head after he beat her up. When Howe arrived, he was amazed that the man was still alive, even after putting a probe all the way through his head. However, this nameless man died about thirty minutes later.
As prostitution waned in nearby areas when laws were passed and "proper” women charged forward to ensure compliance, Deadwood's "service businesses” continued to thrive. In fact, it was so profitable that many of the madams began to have branch houses in nearby Belle Fourche, Sturgis, Keystone, Custer, Hay Camp, (later known as Rapid City), and other areas. There was even a floating barge brothel on the Belle Fourche River to the north.
The men, too, were often at risk as prostitutes sometimes helped themselves to any gold, money or valuables that might have been in their pockets. However, this was generally not the case as most of the women prospered, at least in the beginning, due to the high demand of their "services.”
When the gold rush was over, the girls remained and the houses were one of the primary supports of the local economy through Prohibition and the Depression. The upstairs floors on Main Street were as much an integral part of Deadwood as the legends of Wild Bill Hickok and Calamity Jane.
Though they obviously didn’t keep official records of their business dealings and financial affairs, they were generally paid in gold dust, which was worth about $20 an ounce when those first "sporting girls” arrived. Outnumbering the girls 200 to 1, the men were quick to pro-
Despite state laws forbidding prostitution, no city ordinance was ever passed in Deadwood to outlaw the practice and for decades, the prostitution business went on with little interference from the outside world and little care by the locals for what the rest of the nation
A typical brothel, this building in Cripple Creek, Colorado, had the bar and greeting room downstairs and the ‘working area’ of the brothel upstairs. Today, it is maintained as the Homestead Museum, complete with the building’s history
One of “Pearl’s Girls,” a local madam back in the day were said to have continued to occupy the upstairs apartments on Main Street for years afterwards. After more than a century, a Deadwood institution had been closed forever and most of the out-of-work girls moved on. Though the sporting ladies of the gulch may be gone, they are not forgotten as Deadwood continues to celebrate them in parades, stories, and musical revues. Gambling Whether on a riverboat atop the Mighty Mississippi, or in the smoky dimness of a mining camp saloon, a lucky draw could turn a broken man into a winner. In the days of the frontier west, poker was king with the mustachioed likes of Wild Bill Hickok, Doc Holliday, "Canada” Bill Jones, Wyatt Earp, Bat Masterson, and hundreds of others. In the old west towns of Deadwood, Dodge City, Tombstone, and Virginia City, gamblers played with their back to the wall and their guns at their sides, as dealers dealt games with names such as Chuck-A-Luck, Three Card Monte, High Dice, and Faro, by far the favorite in the wild west saloons.
"I haven't the foggiest." Then, "I suppose it was because we hadn't done anything about it before." Most of the local residents hoped the 1980 closing would just "go away,” as the support for the "girls” went far beyond tolerance, insisting that they contributed to the economic base of the city. One businessman said of the whole affair: "They're a public service, not a public nuisance." However, to ensure prostitution wasn't revived in Deadwood, officials

Page 4 - March 01, 2012 Police Report Decreased Impounds Due to New Law Escondido Chief of Police, Jim Maher, reports that the number of vehicles impounded as a result of unlicensed drivers stopped at Driver’s License and Sobriety Check Points, are down. But he’s not happy about it.
Local News once they bring a licensed driver to retrieve their car. We know what’s happening. We stop a vehicle, issue a citation for not having a driver’s license. Then, under the new law, we have to allow them to call a friend or relative who has a license to come and retrieve the vehicle. In 90% of the cases, those unlicensed drivers are on the road again the next day. While the legislators who made this law are well meaning, they won’t realize the impact this law has until, one day, when an unlicensed driver kills someone.” Also, as a result of this law and the decrease in impounded cars, the number of protesters have dropped to near zero. The new law gives drivers whose only violation is being unlicensed an opportunity to call a licensed driver to take the vehicles away.
Escondido Police Chief Jim Maher
“We enforce the law. But I don’t agree with this law. It allows too many unlicensed drivers to be on the roads again
During the two checkpoints that have been held this year, police released 22 vehicles to licensed drivers. Eighteen vehicles were impounded for One of my favorite preachers is Joel Osteen (he’s on Channel 10, ABC, 9am, Sunday mornings). You don’t have to be a Christian to enjoy and learn from Osteen’s sermons. That’s the same with Sam Brumit.

Some of the former protesters still argue they believe Escondido police routinely turn stopped suspects who are Latino over to ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement).
As officers arrived, several spectators fled into the nearby wilderness. Police seized 50 roosters and the San Diego Humane Society then took custody of the roosters.
Chief Maher disagreed, saying the ICE officers working with the department only arrest people who have been convicted of a crime. "Our policy is, if you have been convicted of a crime in America and we stop you, Escondido is not the right place for you to be in."

the rules were similar to today’s Five Card Stud. Others are of the opinion that it was invented by the Chinese in 900 A.D. In all likelihood, the game derived from elements of various gambling diversions that have been around from the beginning of time. Poker in the United States was first widely played in New Orleans by French settlers playing a card game that involved bluffing and betting called Poque in the early 1800's. This old poker game was similar to the "draw poker” game we play today. New Orleans evolved as America’s first gambling city as riverboat men, plantation owners and farmers avidly pursued the betting sport. The first American gambling Low back pain can be a crippling experience. You might not be able to play golf, work, or even sit in the car for a 30-minute drive.

casino was opened in New Orleans around 1822 by a man named John Davis. The club, open twenty-four hours a day, provided gourmet food, liquor, roulette wheels, Faro tables, poker, and other games. Davis also made certain that painted ladies were never far away. Dozens of imitators soon followed making the gaming dens the primary attraction of New Orleans. The city's status as an international port and its thriving gambling industry created a new profession, called the card "sharper." Professional gamblers and cheats gathered in a waterfront area known as "the swamp," an area even the police were afraid to frequent, and any gambler lucky enough to win stood a good chance of losing his earnings to thieves outside of the gambling rooms and saloons. Gambling was outlawed in the rest of the huge Louisiana territory in 1911, but New Orleans continued to enjoy the prosperity brought by gambling for more than 100 years. Though the law was passed for the entire Louisiana Purchase, it was obviously not enforced and casinos and gambling began to spread. As commerce developed on the waterways, gambling traveled
up the Mississippi and Ohio Rivers, then westward via covered wagons, and later on the railroad. The first written reference in the United States came from Jonathan H. Greer in 1834 when he referred to the amusement as the "cheating game.” Some of the first gambling dens outside of New Orleans were started on river towns that were popular to both travelers and professional gamblers. It was here that many "sharpers” preyed on these transient people, with their pockets filled with their life savings, on the way to the new frontier. The dishonest gamblers also often ran confidence games and other con artist businesses, in order to gaff the unwary pioneers. A host of companies specialized in manufacturing and selling card cheating devices. One riverboat gambler named George Devol was so proud of his ability to slip a stacked deck into a game that he once used four of them in one poker hand, dealing four aces to each of his four opponents. It was professional gamblers who were largely responsible for the poker boom. Considering themselves as entrepreneurs, they took advantage of America’s growing

obsession with gambling. Though having a high opinion of themselves, the public viewed them with disdain, considering them as contributing nothing to society. This viewpoint was often warranted in many cases, as a large number of professional gamblers often cheated in order to win. To be successful, professional gamblers had to have irresistible personalities in order to attract men to play with them. Often dressing in dandy clothes, their success depended partly on chance and partly on skill, sometimes on slight of hand, and in the Old West, their shooting abilities. By the 1830s, citizens began to blame professional gamblers for any and every crime in the area and gambling itself began to be attacked.

Noosha Tagdiri and Aiden Zanzig play on the piano Trinity Episcopal Church Donates to Wounded Warrior Project Since November 2004, Trinity Episcopal Church has established several Perpetual Memorial Funds
Annually, a committee is appointed and directed to meet and prayerfully consider how the income from these funds is to be spent on useful, charitable purposes, outside the purview of Trinity Episcopal Church, for the furtherance of the Lord’s work in the world. The most important element of this procedure is not the amount of money available, although that is important, but the prayerful consideration of how to spend it. The main restriction as to how this is done, other than not spending it on Trinity, is that a recipient of the earnings allocated to any fund in any given year is not eligible to receive funds in the succeeding year. The monies may be consolidated into one annual award or into separate awards. This year the committee decided to combine the awards and donated a total of $1,113.76 to the Wounded Warrior Project. In 2011, the perpetual memorial fund awards, a total of $545.22, went to four different organizations. The church is located at 845 Chestnut St., at 9th Avenue. They can be reached at 760.743.1629. The Rector is the Rev. Margaret (Meg) Decker. Pacific Preschool to Break Ground in San Elijo Hills The groundbreaking for Pacific Preschool and Kindergarten of San Elijo Hills, a 6,975 sq.foot facility with a 10,000 sq.foot outdoor playground, will take place at 10am on Thursday, March 8, at the school site on Elfin Forest road, across from San Elijo Middle School. The facility features eight individual classrooms surrounding a large multi-purpose room, kitchen and ancillary facilities. It is scheduled to open in the fall, serving children from 18 months of age through kindergarten. San Elijo Hills is the third location for Pacific Preschool, a private Early Education Program owned and operated by Lowell and Lynda Way. "Pacific Preschool and Kindergarten focuses on kindergarten readiness -- developing the physical, social, emotional, and intellectual skills children need to succeed in school" said Lynda Way, an educator who established their first preschool in 1990. Pacific's curriculum is based on the needs of its students; each child is assessed and tracked to determine their kindergarten readiness, then a plan is developed to focus on their needs.

tissue changes and oral cancer. While practicing the last 28 years here in San Marcos, we have detected several patients having precancerous conditions, a few actually having oral cancer, and at least one case of pancreatic cancer, all while doing oral examinations.
On the “Home Front”, we, as dentists, with our dental staff, are always encouraging those that smoke or use smokeless tobacco to stop and have been directed by the Federal and State agencies on health to counsel our patients on their detrimental effects. What a lot of our patients don’t know is that, when tobacco use is combined with alcohol, the incidence of oral cancer increases dramatically! Studies show that it may increase your chances of getting oral cancer 10 fold!
It’s not an exaggeration to say that having your periodic cleaning and dental examination is your early warning system to detecting and preventing this disease as well as many others. Your mouth is a “window” for detecting systemic problems you may be having, and in the case of tobacco usage, the signs can be very clear to your dentist.

She can enjoy your other pets and children or be by herself if that is the case. She likes to play with some toys but prefers to cuddle and watch TV with you. Like all our pups, Vanna has been spayed and microchipped. Her vaccines and rabies are all up to date. She comes with a full 4 piece safety equipment set, food for her transition and any favorite toys or bedding. Visit her on our website www.forgottenpaws.org for more pictures and the location of our next adoption event. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for any questions.

Escondido’s Traffic Signal Control System
San Marcos Champions to be honored this week
You might not give much thought to how traffic signals work, but the City of Escondido does. We have a reliable, real-time, effective and flexible traffic signal control system for 170 intersections within the City limits. Each signalized intersection has a computerized signal controller that runs timing programs for that intersection. These timing programs are designed to consider the peak traffic periods and intersection conditions of each intersection. Our traffic signals are grouped to coordinate with other adjacent signals in corridors of traffic signals.
Flexibility is built into the programing to respond to the presence of vehicles and pedestrians, but some corridors are given more priority than others. These groups are then connected to central workstations from which City staff can observe all traffic signals, but they only control the timing for City signals (148 of the 170). Each of the corridors is set up to allow a smooth flow of vehicles, but many conditions can disrupt this flow. These conditions include pedestrians crossing the street, parades, the Sprinter, emergency vehicles, and corridors ending/starting at signals the City cannot control, i.e., Caltrans signals. As a result of this system, traffic generally flows smoothly around town. But be assured that we continually monitor and look for ways to improve our service and keep you moving!
Rancho Bernardo • Mayor Jerry Sanders A Major Milestone in Our Recovery I delivered some terrific news about San Diego’s fiscal recovery: The city’s decades-long structural budget deficit is history. Through the combination of moneysaving reforms and a recovery in tax revenue, we’re projecting a $16.5 million surplus for the current fiscal year, which ends in June. I’ve directed the chief operating officer to keep half the money in reserves. But the recovery of revenue from recessionary lows is expected to continue for the foreseeable future, which warrants the targeted restoration of services in the police, fire, library and park depart-
ments. This spring, we intend to increase operating hours at all 35 branch libraries in the city by an additional four hours per week; add five hours per week to operations at all of the city’s 55 recreation centers; add 15 more cadets to the next police academy; and fund a new fire station alert system that connects the city’s 47 fire stations with the dispatch center, to replace the badly outdated 20-year-old system. Scaling back core services is something we did with great reluctance, but we’re now through the worst. Thanks, San Diego, for the sacrifices you've made to get us through our darkest days to restore the finances of the city we all love so much.
Vista • Mayor Judy Ritter Public Safety Continues to Be a Top Priority for the Vista City Council
During last year, the Vista Fire Department responded to over 10,500 incidents. Our six fire stations are extremely active and that means the fire dispatch centers also stay very busy. Through a regional grant, the County’s fire dispatch centers are now being connected through data lines and interoperability software. To the nontechnical person, this means it will further enhance the dispatch center in sending out the closest unit across city borders. This should, in turn, help Vista
provide the quickest response aid to those who need it. In addition, the Fire Department will launch a new volunteer program in the upcoming months. Volunteers will be recruited to staff safety events, distribute literature, organize events and provide office help. All of our volunteers are one of our most valuable resources the City has. Their countless hours and lending of their individual talents and skills to improve the city and serve their fellow neighbors is greatly appreciated. For more information on volunteer opportunities, check the city’s web site at cityofvista.com
As part of the annual State of the City Address, each member of the San Marcos City Council honors individuals who, in their judgment, have made significant contributions to the betterment of San Marcos. This year, Vice Mayor Hal Martin will honor Former San Marcos Vice Mayor Pia Harris-Ebert for her many years of community service on the City Council and dedication to San Marcos. Council Member Chris Orlando will honor Steve and Kathleen Kildoo, a couple who has served on a variety of city commissions and special task forces. Together, they have volunteered hundreds of hours to making San Marcos a better place.
Council Member Rebecca Jones will bestow the honor on Ginger Hitzke of Hitzke Development, an affordable housing development company. Ginger has overseen the creation of hundreds of units of affordable housing, including the awardwinning Autumn Terrace in the Richmar neighborhood of San Marcos. Council Member Kristal Jabara will honor local businesswoman Karen Sherman, owner of Green Gables Wedding Estate. Karen recently took over this event property after the former operators closed up the venue and left several brides without a place to have their wedding --- some just weeks before their big day. Karen came in, took over the Old Richland Schoolhouse and honored the brides who had been scheduled to wed there. Please join me in congratulating the 2012 San Marcos Champions!
Oceanside • Mayor Jim Wood SD Humane Society/SPCA Oceanside Campus The San Diego Humane Society & SPCA (SDHS), a non-profit organization, has been serving animals and people throughout San Diego County since 1880. Offering a wide range of programs and services, SDHS seeks to strengthen the human-animal bond, prevent cruelty/neglect, provide medical care and educate the community on the humane treatment of animals. As it doesn’t receive any government grant funding, it is through charitable contributions raised via ongoing fundraising efforts that makes the difference for the animals in their care. With a satellite location here in Oceanside, SDHS is busy at work
offering North County residents the opportunity to get involved with their organization through either volunteering at the Oceanside North Campus, monetary or pet food contributions, etc. The exciting news now is the expansion of the Youth and Adult programs that include youth humane education that visits local classrooms, Animal Adventure Camp, Tots and Tales Story Time, School/Group/Scout tours of the campus facility, Birthday Parties on location, Happy Hour Lecture Series and the Doggie Café. And don’t forget to visit the newly renovated offleash dog park at 2905 San Luis Rey Road, right next to the Oceanside North Campus, where dogs for adoption are also located. The new site for cats and small animals is at 572 Airport Road. To contact the Oceanside North Campus office, call (760) 757-4357.

Page 12 - March 01, 2012 Factory is simply that at any given performance (speed) level, Intel CPUs cost more than AMD’s. Another way of saying it is that at any given price, AMD’s CPUs are faster than Intel’s.
Nome and Paul Van Middlesworth email: email@example.com The Computer Factory Choosing the CPU for your next PC
Last week we discussed getting “bang for your buck” in a new PC. There’s usually a 500% difference in speed between the slowest and fastest CPUs on the market. Buying a new PC with the very fastest CPU would be an unnecessary extravagance for most of us but paying a little more to get a lot more speed could be a wise investment. Both Intel and AMD make excellent CPUs. There’s no difference in quality, reliability and compatibility. The only relevant criteria in choosing one over the other are price and performance, (bang for the buck). The reason we use AMD in most of the PCs we build at The Computer
Bills Flood the Legislature Even with the second highest unemployment rate in the country, legislators in Sacramento are focusing their time and energy on everything but delivering a real plan for job creation. Examples of the legislature’s misguided priorities were on display during last week’s “bill deadline” to introduce legislation. A flood of measures were introduced in the capitol demonstrating a legislative structure organized around trivial bills. Among the pressing issues addressed in these bills were new ways of regulating pet groomers, banning Gatorade from schools, and limiting where food trucks can park. Really. Taxpayers should expect that the Governor and majorityparty would move swiftly to enact policies to help with the state’s biggest problem- unem-
For example, an AMD Athlon 631 CPU costs less than $100 and has a speed (Passmark Benchmark) of 4431. Intel has several CPUs that benchmark in the 4400 range but they cost from $150 to $300. It doesn’t make sense for us to use Intel CPUs in performance ranges where Intel and AMD overlap. We may use an Intel CPU in some of our highest performance workstations because the very fastest Intel CPU has a 10,000 Passmark score and AMD’s fastest tops out at 8000.
innumerable examples of Intel’s use of deceptive advertising and “under the table” dealings with PC makers aimed at squeezing AMD. Perhaps it’s a reflection on who runs the company. Intel is a classic example of the “marketing driven” enterprise while AMD is clearly “engineering driven.” It seems to us that engineers are more honest and substantial than marketing types. Sadly, it also seems that the “marketing driven” approach is the superior business strategy. Even in the six-year span between 2000 and 2006 when AMD’s Athlon CPUs were clearly superior to Intel’s Pentium IVs, Intel’s market share and profit margins suffered only slightly. With the
Introduction of the Core 2 Duo in late 2006 Intel was able to regain its leadership and return to the practice of “premium pricing” on its CPU product line. In summary, Intel’s CPUs are excellent products and AMD CPUs are every bit as good. So when you perform “due diligence” by comparing the performance (passmark benchmarks) of CPUs prior to making your purchase decision on a new PC, you need not concern yourself as to whether the CPU is an Intel or AMD. Only the price and performance are relevant. Next week we’ll discuss other factors that affect the performance of your new PC.
Intel is six times the size of AMD and has a diverse product line. AMD essentially makes CPUs and graphics for PCs. We admit an emotional bias toward AMD and its products. To us AMD is the “little guy” who plays by the rules and works hard to make an honest living. AMD’s product developers aim squarely at the mainstream user, constantly improving speed and functionality. Intel on the other hand often plays fast and loose with business ethics. There are
ployment. More than 1 in 10 of our neighbors is currently unemployed. Policies being addressed in some bills are important. However, my point is to convey a deeply flawed system that does a disservice to all Californians because its current structure dictates that lawmakers spend their time debating the merits of nonpressing bills. We need to fundamentally reform the legislative process in order to realign priorities and help get people back to work. 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.
Pension Reform Measures Introduced Last week, I joined fellow Assembly and Senate Representatives to introduce a pension reform plan as state legislation. The plan, along with other reforms proposed by Assembly Republicans to bring public pensions in line with those in the private sector, is what’s needed to address California’s runaway pension system. Our legislation is another step toward fixing the state’s broken pension system, which has been estimated by nonpartisan sources to have an unfunded liability as high as $500 billion. As the Assembly Republican leader in 2010, I fought to pass significant pension reforms that included an increase in retirement contri-
butions from current employees, created a more fiscally responsible pension plan for new hires and increased retirement ages to bring them more in line with the private sector. I am pleased that so many of my colleagues and the Governor agree that we can no longer afford to keep ignoring the out of control pension costs. The plan includes many reforms that Republicans have championed in the past, including eliminating the purchase of “airtime” which allows employees to purchase credit for years not worked, ending pension spiking by not allowing employees to apply unused sick leave, overtime pay or expense accounts in their retirement calculation and requiring more contributions from employees to better protect taxpayers.

‘Local News’ Cont. from Page 4 expected to argue that O’Rourke was ‘temporarily insane.” The defense concedes that Brendan O'Rourke was the gunman who hopped a fence at Kelly Elementary School on Oct. 8, 2010, and shot at second-graders on a playground at the school.

Escondido Chamber CEO, Harvey Mitchell, to retire June 30th
O'Rourke's defense attorney, Daniel Segura, kept his opening statement to under a minute.
Harvey Mitchell, whose career as a local banker, finance executive, and business leader spans nearly four decades, has announced he will retire as president and chief executive officer of the Escondido Chamber of Commerce on June 30.
"This case is going to have a lot of emotion," Segura said. "Please keep an open mind."

O'Rourke reportedly screamed during the shooting about insurance company AIG, President Obama and gay people. The gunman later told investigators he targeted little children because his neighbor forced him to do so. And if he failed in the attack, the neighbor would physically torture him, he said, according to court documents. Testimony is slated to continue Monday afternoon, with the construction workers who tackled him scheduled to testify. The jury might also hear from the person who sold O'Rourke the gun used in the attack.

Page 14 - March 01, 2012 ‘The Real Wild West . . ’ Cont. from Page 5 blers, and the fourth, a hapless traveler from Natchez. Soon, the young naïve man had lost all his money to the rigged game. Devastated, the Natchez man planned to throw himself into the river; however, an observer prevented his suicide attempt, and then joined the card game with the "sharps.” In the middle of a high stakes hand, the stranger caught one of the professionals cheating and pulled a knife on the gambler, yelling, "Show your hand! If it contains more than five cards I shall kill you!” When he twisted the cheater’s wrist, six cards fell to the table. Immediately, the stranger took the $70,000 pot, returning $50,000 to the Natchez man and keeping $20,000 for his trouble. Shocked, the Natchez man stuttered, "Who the devil are you, anyway?” to which the stranger responded, "I am James Bowie.” Anxious citizens of these river port towns grew more and more wary of the confidence men that were multiplying so quickly. In Vicksburg, Mississippi, the citizens rage had become so increased by 1835, five cardsharps were lynched by ‘Local News’ Cont. from Page 13 which time he has led efforts to build the new chamber headquarters building, establish the city’s Convention and Visitors Bureau, and launch the quarterly Escondido Magazine. Mitchell assumed his present position after a 38-year banking career that included serving as CEO of First National Bank of San Diego County and Escondido National Bank as well as senior positions with Bank of San Diego and Bank of Commerce and two three-year terms as a director of the Federal Reserve Board in Los Angeles. Chamber Chairman John Masson: “He’s helped our chamber be an effective voice for Escondido’s business community in so many ways. He will be greatly missed.” Masson said a search committee of chamber leaders will work towards finding Mitchell’s successor and having that person in place before June 30, the last day of
a vigilante group. It was soon after this that many of the gamblers moved onto the riverboats, benefiting from the transient riverboat lifestyle. At the conclusion of the Civil War, America pushed her boundaries West, where the frontier was born of speculators, travelers, and miners. These hardy pioneers had high risk-taking characteristics, making any gambling situation a popular pastime for these rough and tumble men of the frontier. In virtually every mining camp and prairie town, a poker table could soon be found in each saloon, surrounded by prospectors, lawmen, cowboys, railroad workers, soldiers, and outlaws for a chance to tempt fortune and fate.

Letters to the Editor Taxes The Constitution of the United States of America states the people are not to be overtaxed. There is a lot to be said about what “overtaxed” means because it's every time we turn around. The Tea Party has it right: No more taxes! The person in the White House acts ( literally) like he doesn’t know the damage he’s doing to the middle class by the latest propaganda supposedly lowering the corporations taxes. Ha! Corporations are already taxed and those doing international business would be taxed double, there and here.

We need sanity with outrage (we can’t scream too loud or long enough) before it is too late to close the loop holes is among other things. In actuality, it has a capital gains rider that would lead to a stock market shut down. The dividends’ tax raises from 2.10 per cent, which most of the middle class lives on, raised to 44.8 per cent! (sic) Nearly TRIPLE the taxes. Taxation and regulation penalizes productivity. This administration has it all wrong about the economy. These last three years the debt increase is eight trillion dollars more. Cut spending now. Get informed and inform others. Corporations should not be taxed at all. They create capital and jobs.
