Editor’s Note: Not far from two small Nebraska towns, Royal and Orchard, the beautiful Niobrara River runs contentedly through farmland (background photo) . It has done this for years. Today, near these two towns, paleontologists have discovered remnants of once active wildlife that today is totally alien to Nebraska.
Prehistoric Pompeii When The Dust Settled 12 Million Years Ago Ashfall Fossil Beds State Historical Park by Claudia Aragon
It never fails to amaze me where my story ideas come from. A short while ago I spoke with a gentleman named Richard, regarding Yellowstone National Park. We talked of how magnificent the park is and how fortunate we both were to have seen first-hand a volcanic hot spot in action and all of the visual wonders the park has The Paper - 760.747.7119
Our Claudia Aragon picks up the story from there:
to offer, like ‘Old Faithful.’
During the course of our conversation Richard asked if I’d ever been to Ashfall State Park. I’d neither been to, nor heard of the park before and as he provided the details about Ashfall my interest was piqued.
Approximately 12 million years ago, there was a volcanic eruption of a ‘hot spot’ similar to Yellowstone, in southwestern Idaho, which spread a blanket of ash as far east as Nebraska. There is evidence that approximately two feet of the glassy dust
covered the flat, savannahlike grassy plains of northeastern Nebraska.
A geological analysis of the ash in Nebraska revealed the same chemical components as the Bruneau-Jarbidge Eruptive Center, an extinct volcanic caldera in Idaho. The ash was dated by two methods: by Uranium fission tracks, and by the single crystal Argon of the source material. Evidence reveals that most of the fossilized animals excavated survived the initial ash fallout, but as the animals continued to graze across the
grasslands they inhaled the harsh, abrasive ash, filling their lungs with the glassy powder. After time, their lungs became severely damaged and the animals began to die. Some of the best preserved fossils of rhinos, camels, horses, turtles and birds have been excavated at Ashfall. It is estimated that the smaller animals died in the first few days after the initial ash fall, and the larger animals, like the rhinos, perished within a three to five week time frame. Petrified wood, plus the skeletal remains of alligators and large fish were found at a

base cliff near Ashfall. These finds date back to 14 million years ago, a time when Nebraska was a subtropical jungle. At the point in time the volcano in Idaho erupted, Nebraska had already become a savannah.
Pristinely preserved for millions of years, hundreds of prehistoric animals have been discovered buried beneath the soil of the northeastern Nebraska farmland, safely cradled within the volcanic ash beds. Paleontologists credit the three dimensional fossils found to a quick burial beneath the falling volcanic ash. The articulated, lifelike skeletons allow the paleontologists to reconstruct facsimiles of life appearances and the habits of these prehistoric species with more accuracy than achievable ever before. Clues to the climate conditions from 12 million years ago are held within the soil, the vegetation and the animals themselves buried beneath the ash. The smaller animals died first,

A newly appointed young preacher was contacted by the local funeral director to hold a graveside service at a small country cemetery. There was to be no funeral, just the comittal, because the deceased had no family or friends left. The young pastor started early to the cemetery, but soon lost his way. After making several wrong turns, he finally arrived a halfhour late. The hearse was nowhere in sight and the workmen were relaxing under a nearby tree, eating their lunch. The pastor went
due mainly to their smaller lung capacity. Their bodies were quickly buried beneath the particles of the drifting, blowing ash. The fossilized animals lay perfect in death formation, skeletons undisturbed, except for those carried away by meat eating scavengers. Some fossils were complete with evidence of their last meal in both their mouths and stomachs and a few housed the skeletal remains of their unborn young. The procession of the death march to the watering hole can now be seen, the footsteps preserved forever in the layer of sandstone uncovered below the thick layer of volcanic. Nebraska opened its newest state park, Ashfall Fossil Beds State Historical Park, on June 1, 1991. The park is a joint venture between the University of Nebraska and the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission, and is located 6 miles north of U.S. Highway 20 between Royal and Orchard. To date, only two buildings have been constructed: the Rhino Barn, which covers a portion of the fossil bearing ash bed and a

A frog goes into a bank and approaches the teller. He can see from her nameplate that the teller’s name is Patricia Whack. So he says, “Ms. Whack, I’d like to get a loan to buy a boat and go on a long vacation.”
Patti looks at the frog in disbelief and asks how much he wants to borrow. The frog says $30,000. The teller asks his name and frog say that his name is Kermit Jagger, his dad is Mick Jagger, and that it’s okay, he knows the bank manager.
Patti explains that $30,000 is a substantial amount of money and that he will need to secure some collateral against the loan. She asks if he has anything he can use as collateral.
visitor center, with a working fossil preparation laboratory and interpretive displays.
In 1969, paleontologist Mike Voorhies, first visited Melvin Colson’s farm, as part of a long term geology and paleontology study of the Verdigre Valley. Initially Voorhies and his wife, Jane, were excavating a 100 foot high cliff of sandstone on Colson’s farm, known to geologists as the Cap Rock.
It wasn’t until two years later in 1971, after torrential rains swept debris and soil away from a deeply gullied hillside, that Mr. Voorhies discovered a baby rhinoceros skull on Colson’s farm. The skull was embedded into the side of a ravine, located on the edge of a cornfield. Voorhies’ afternoon of prospecting turned out to be a once in a lifetime discovery and adventure. On first examination, the rhino appeared to be perfectly intact. As an added bonus, the remains of several more animals were buried deep into the hill as well, covered by ten to twenty feet of ash and sandstone. The skeletons

were always found in the same order. The rhinos were found first, and then the horses and camels, followed by the birds and turtles. Proving Voorhies’ theory; all the smaller animals did indeed die first.
Voorhies was eager to begin a full scale excavation of the site, but lacked the necessary funds to begin a project of that enormity. In order to receive his funding, he had to prove the rhino head was not just an isolated incident. He returned six years later with a group of students to start excavation of the area. That’s when he hit what he refers to as “the mother lode.” The initial excavation was between 1977 and 1979. During those three years, over 200 skeletons were unearthed from an area that was once a prehistoric water hole, including one hundred complete rhino fossils, of the genus Teleceros, along with a multitude of horses, camels, birds and turtles. The museum was originally named, ‘In . . . Nebraska?’ Cont. on Page 3

Very confused, Patti explains that she’ll have to consult with the manager and disappears into a back office. She finds the manager and says, “There’s a frog called Kermit Jagger out there who claims to know you and wants to borrow $30,000. And he wants to use this as collateral.” She holds up the tiny pink elephant. “I mean, what the heck is this?”

According to Gregory Brown of the Division of Vertebrate Paleontology at the University of Nebraska, by the mid 1980’s, Voorhies and his crew had returned to Ashfall to continue his exploration work and assist in the preliminary plans and development of a new state park. The approach was simple; they would not collect and remove all of the fossils discovered, but would expose them and leave them in place within the volcanic ash to enable people to see and share in this magnificent find. The discovery has since given forth data concerning diet, the disease processes of each separate genus, the population dynamics between the species, and clues to social behavior like no other discovery before. Paleontologists have been given an astounding snapshot of life in Nebraska as it existed over ten million years ago. Where else can paleontologists and anthropologists get a rare glimpse of evolution at work? At Ashfall they have been given just that, most notably regarding the evolution of horses, as they adapted to environmental changes.
When the Ashfall area was moist, the horses had three toes. One large central toe flanked on each side by two smaller toes, to aid the horse’s traction. Evolutionary changes in horses are the most clearly documented in fossil records. While some prehistoric horses had three toes, others had only one…the precursor to the modern day hoof.
There is a multitude of preparators at Ashfall, like Greg Brown who was given the task of doing detailed preparations on ‘Sandy’ and’ Justin’, a mother-baby pair of rhinos, preserved in death while touching noses. Several more discoveries were made of young rhinos dying while nursing. One can only imagine the helpless despair and agony these animals suffered as they watched each other die.
Another preparator, Ellen Stepleton, worked on the remains of an adult female rhino, given the name ‘Amy.’ She is one of the rhino fossils found housing the skeletal remains of her unborn calf in her pelvic cavity. Her stomach and mouth contain the remnants of her last meal of grass seeds and leaves, and her shoulder harbors the wound of a carnivorous scavenger. ‘Amy’ is one of 25 permanent fossil residents in the ‘Rhino Barn’ on display for visitors to the park.
In close proximity to ‘Amy’ in the barn are the remains of a small deer–like animal (Longirostromeryx), a camel, numerous other scattered bones, and a three-toed horse coined with the name, ‘Dr. Marie.’ The fossil was named after the person who first described the association of abnormal bone growth in relation to severe lung damage, or disease. This condition is called hypertrophic pulmonary osteodystrophy, and as the animals inhaled the abrasive dust, they would have experienced high fevers and swelling. This condition is usually found in living animals and humans, but until the discovery of Ashfall, it had seldom, if ever been seen in fossils. Evidence of the same abnormal pathologic bone growths found in modern day animals who have suffered from oxygen deprivation and lung failure, were found on the bones of every fossil at Ashfall. It is highly likely that all of the animals experienced lung damage caused by breathing great quantities of the highly toxic and abrasive volcanic ash. Now over forty years later, that same Nebraska cornfield is the Ashfall Fossil Beds State Historical Park. Every year during the five month field season from May to October, the park visitors have the rare opportunity to watch as scientists and interns sweep away the soft, gray volcanic ash to discover more new fossils, while working under the protective canopy of the 17,500 square foot ‘Rhino Barn.’ The newest barn was constructed after a generous donation of 1.2 million dol-
lars from the Theodore and Claire Hubbard Family Foundation in 2007. Since Voorhies initial discovery, 17 separate vertebrate species have been uncovered and cataloged, and more than 200 fossils from the 12 species of the Claredonian Land Mammal Age have been discovered on the site.
The youngest fossil from 1.3 million years ago is of a Stegomastodon, from a site in Hitchcock County, near Trenton, Nebraska. The Stegomastodon was the last surviving member of the ‘gomphoteres,’ the primitive tuskers, lineage. The ‘gomphoteres’ first entered North America over 15 million years ago and were replaced by a newly arrived immigrant…the mammoth, precursor to the modern day elephant. Once again, Voorhies and his wife, Jane, were on site to lead the excavation process, along with University of Nebraska State Museum staff, and a plethora of volunteers from Trenton and surrounding areas. Within a two week period, Voorhies had over 1,000 volunteers to assist in the fossil removal. There are only approximately half a dozen enclosed fossil sites in North America. Of those, Ashfall Fossil Beds is the only one that continues to unearth large intact skeletons that resemble real animals. Also, Ashfall Fossil Beds State Historical Park is the only site in the world where large, prehistoric, three-dimensional skeletons are preserved. Since its opening, the park has hosted between 20,000 and 30,000 visitors annually. Over 150 University of Nebraska students have

gained practical field research experience working as interns at Ashfall. At any given time, six to eight university students/interns can be found working the site.
The park is open to the public on Tuesdays thru Saturdays, from May 1st thru October 13th. The admission fee is $5.00 per park visitor ages 3 and up. In addition to the entrance fee, visitors must have a v a l i d Nebraska Park Entry Permit, which is either $5.00 for a daily permit or $26.00 for an annual permit. After researching Ashfall, I can’t wait to see the park in person.

Page 4 - March 21, 2013 Sex-bondage cultists Ordered to Trial in Death of Marine's Wife
A former Marine and two female friends -- all three practitioners of sadomasochism -were ordered Monday to stand trial for murder in the death of the 22-year-old wife of a Marine who was deployed in Afghanistan.
At the end of a weeklong preliminary hearing in Vista, San Diego County Superior Court Judge K. Michael Kirkman ruled there is sufficient evidence to have the three face trial on charges of murder, kidnapping, torture, attempted sexual battery and conspiracy in the strangling death of Brittany Killgore. Former Staff Sgt. Louis Perez, 46, Dorothy Marie Maraglino, 37, and Jessica Lopez, 25, have all pleaded not guilty. The three lived in a home in Fallbrook near the apartment where Killgore lived. Killgore's nude body was found in a ravine in southern Riverside County days after
she was reported missing April 13. Killgore had filed for divorce from her husband, who was deployed to Afghanistan when she disappeared after allegedly going on an outing with Perez.
Perez had boasted that he planned to hold a sadomasochism session that weekend, according to evidence submitted during the preliminary hearing.
Perez, Maraglino and Lopez were involved in "bondage, torture and master-servantslave" behavior, according to evidence submitted by prosecutors. Maraglino calls herself a dominatrix, and Perez particularly likes to spank women, according to search warrants. Killgore had agreed to go on a dinner cruise with Perez the night of April 13 in exchange for his help in moving her belongings out of her Fallbrook apartment.
"After getting into Perez's vehicle and leaving with him, nobody has seen or heard from Killgore," according to an investigator for the San Diego grandkids changed our plans. We wound up having, instead of an intimate, quiet dinner, a good old fashioned downhome family gettogether at Charlie’s Restaurant in Escondido.
However, on Wednesday, we did, in fact, get away for a quiet dinner at Carmela’s where we both had a delicious plate of Chilean Sea Bass and a nice glass of Riesling wine.

Within 13 minutes of getting into Perez's truck, Killgore reportedly texted a friend, "Help." Moments later the friend texted back, "Brittany are u okay I am freaking out here."
According to an investigator's statements in a search warrant, there is no evidence to suggest that Killgore knew of Perez's sexual habits that included bondage, whipping, spanking and cutting. She was an "unwilling participant," according to the warrants.
Prosecutors assert that Perez took Killgore to his Fallbrook home and then texted Lopez and Maraglino to join him. In the house, investigators found "sex apparatuses, toys, and a sex dungeon," according to a search warrant. Among the items found were ropes, whips, a Taser, a nightstick and spiked gloves. Perez and the victim's husband, Cpl. Cory Killgore, were both assigned to Camp Pendleton. Perez was on

No, it was a scratched cornea she received, following an illness that caused her contact lens to not have a tight seal. In fact, she had a cornea transplant about a year ago. Eventually, this lovely 25 year-old will be able to remove the patch and bat her pretty brown eyes at all the customers she waits on.
She had a pretty smile, a quiet but confident air about her, and is one of the favorites of management, staff and her customers. I keep trying to catch her up, however, by asking her for a secret password. She answers, “cash or credit card?” That doesn’t sound like a very good password to me.

Someone explain that logic to me.
We think the city of Escondido should require a forensic accountant to examin the Escondido Chamber of operation. Something just isn’t right.
In 2004 the city donated the land to the Chamber. Now, just nine years later, the Chamber wants to sell the improved property back to the city for $550,000 so it can pay off its debts? The Chamber offer is to then buy back the building from the city over 20 years with a monthly rent payment of $3,100 at 3% interest.
Granted, the Escondido Chamber of Commerce is struggling financially. That, however, is not unusual. Many Chambers nationwide are suffering financially. There is a drop-off in membership within the national Chamber of Commerce community. As Kirk Effinger wrote in the U-T/North County Times:
“One problem for local chambers of commerce seems to be the increasing reliance by cities on big box retailers and those retailers’ general reluctance to get involved in local chambers. Chambers have relied on being membership organizations since the beginning. That has started to change by necessity as it has become clear that membership alone cannot sustain an organization.
Chambers of commerce have fallen on hard times all over the country. In this county alone, several have had to make difficult, painful choices. The Encinitas Chamber of
Commerce has been in turmoil for several years.
Recently, the East County Chamber of Commerce – which was created by the merger of three struggling chambers some years back – announced that it was firing its CEO and would not replace him because there was insufficient revenue to pay one. Effinger is spot-on in his analysis. In Escondido, its membership has dropped from 700+ to less than 500. It’s new CEO, retired banker Les Abshire acknowledges there has been some financial mismanagement in the past.
Abshire, however, declined to provide details about how the chamber got into such deep financial trouble. “We were spending more than we were bringing in,” he said. “We had to let some people go who were costing the chamber a lot of money.” That, to us, raises a red flag.
Let’s see a forensic exam and determine when, where, how, and by whom this financial
March 21, 2013 - Page 5
mismanagement occurred. Then, perhaps, we can begin to set things right.
To his credit, Abshire, using his banking background and training, came up with a creative proposal to solve the problem. “If the chamber were to go under, we’d have no choice but to sell the building for the equity,” he argues.
But, we just don’t think that plan is an appropriate one.
Nor does City Councilwoman Olga Diaz. She calles it a “sweetheart deal” for the chamber and urges her fellow councilmembers to reject it during a public hearing scheduled for April 3.
She also points out city officials recently estimated that the 4,700-square-foot chamber building, on Broadway just north of downtown, would rent for about $6,000 a month — not $3,100.
Further, Diaz argues, subsidizing the chamber would be ‘Commentary’ Cont. on Page 7

How about if we then added to this fine mist and the softened, receptive skin and tissue . . . oxygen? He knew that tissue, when oxygenated, heals much more rapidly. Oxygen, infused under tension in a closed chamber blended with a mist containing the physician’s choice of antimicrobial or antibiotic should aid in the rapid healing of a wound, without subjecting one’s ‘The Inventor’ Cont. on Page 7

He reasoned that if you provided treatment in alternating stages, applying mist, then oxygen, then mist, then oxygen . . . that within one hour you would have completed the treatment and that in about six weeks, you should have seen a tremendous improvement in the wound healing.

particularly inappropriate because the chamber already receives $64,000 per year from city taxpayers to operate the Escondido Convention & Visitors Bureau. Mayor Sam Abed said the proposal isn’t a sweetheart deal or a handout because the chamber would pay 3 percent interest. “This is not a subsidy; it’s a loan with interest,” he said. Sorry, yer Honor, I just don’t buy it. The Chamber is a non-profit association that endorses political candidates, several of whom currently sit on the council. That doesn’t pass the smell test.

Perhaps Les Abshire’s earlier comment should be examined a bit more closely. Sell the land and building for the equity, then use those funds to reduce debt, satisfy creditors, and scale the Chamber back to a size that can manage with smaller quarters with a smaller mission, which would be more responsive to changing times. Granted, this would reduce the political

There may well be other options available. Abshire has shown he’s an outstanding banker with a creative mind. There are others within the business communty who are similarly creative. Let us harness that creative power and come up with a better plan that does not gnaw away at the taxpayer.

WARRANTY and SERVICE
During the first two decades of the “PC age” (1980 – 2000), the average life expectancy of a PC was about two years. They didn’t wear out, they simply became obsolete. The rapid pace of software and hardware development in those early years prompted the universal cliché that your newly purchased computer would be obsolete by the time you got it home. Today things are quite different. Since the introduction of Windows XP in 2001, the average useful life of a PC has more than doubled. Today’s home and business users hang with their old PCs for five or six years on average.
In the early days the standard “one year manufacturer’s warranty” covered nearly half of the life expectancy of a PC. Today that same manu-
35th Anniversary of Proposition 13
Last week, I introduced legislation to honor an important California tax law, Proposition 13. My legislative resolution SCR 25 calls for commemoration of Proposition 13 on its 35th Anniversary: June 6th, 2013. Proposition 13 is a constitutional protection that has successfully served California homeowners and residents for the past three decades.
In 1978, 62% of Californians voted in support of the proposition. It was a citizen led effort to address escalating property tax rates. With its passage, voters added predictability for property tax rates, while allowing for reasonable property tax increases annually.
facturer’s warranty covers less than 20% of the average PC’s lifespan. Ongoing service and maintenance are important factors in determining what computer to buy.
Brand name PCs (Dell, HP etc.) come in two flavors, “business workstations” and “retail packages.” Workstations sold to corporations typically come bundled with lifetime maintenance contracts. Retail PCs sold by mass merchandisers like Best Buy have single year manufacturer’s warranties. There are significant differences in quality and price between “workstation” PCs and “retail” PCs. Dell and HP “Workstations” are higher in price, quality and reliability because they are usually sold with lifetime service contracts. Retail PCs with single year warranties are cheaper and of lower quality and reliability. Since neither Dell or HP design and manufacture computers it simply means that they buy better quality Chinese PCs for their business customers than the Chinese PCs they purchase for home and small business users. Along with lower quality, one-year warranty components, “retail” PCs also come with “bloatware” (popups, links, trial programs and advertisements), another burden not shared by “workstations.” At The Computer Factory we build desktop computers to “workstation” standards. The components we use are designed to last. The manufacturer’s warranty on the major com-
All taxpayers were afforded new protections under Proposition 13, as it also required a two-thirds vote threshold for tax increases.
This year, many bills have been introduced that attempt to dilute the benefits of Proposition 13. The legislature should be working toward economic stability for constituents, not chipping away at taxpayer protections. This is why I introduced SCR 25 and hope that my colleagues will join me. Keeping Proposition 13 intact must be a priority, if we are to get California back on track.

ponents we use are: ASUS motherboards-five years, AMD and INTEL CPU’s- three years, Western Digital hard drives – two to five years, RAM memory-lifetime. Since our in-house warranty on all parts and labor is one year, customers have asked what good are multi-year manufacturer’s warranties.
End users can actually use multiyear warranties after the standard inhouse warranty expires. For example, if any component in your Dell or HP retail PC, motherboard, hard drive, RAM, CPU etc, failed after one year, there is no warranty. With our workstations, the component manufacturer’s warranties remain in force even after our one-year in
house warranty expires. Few users would take the time and effort to send a hard drive or motherboard back to the original manufacturer and then wait for the repair and return, but they could if they wanted to. The real value of having higher reliability components with multi-year warranties in our workstations resides in the fact that quality components greatly increase the reliability of the entire system and reduce the likelihood of breakdown over the extended life of today’s PCs. It’s also nice to know that the same folks who built your computer are the very ones servicing it.
