by Claudia Aragon War can be a cold and cruel mistress, causing men to do unspeakable deeds, as neighbor turns against neighbor in the name of peace, liberty and honor. Like most people I learned American history in both middle and high school, beginning with the wars that set our great country free. I remember learning about the first and second World Wars as well. Television was used as an instrument for patriotism as shows like Combat and Rat Patrol were there for our viewing pleasure. The movies gave us the likes of Kelly’s Heroes, The Dirty Dozen, The Great Escape, From Here To Eternity, Bridge Over the River Kwai and Tora, Tora, Tora, just to name a few. As children, we went from playing cops and robbers and cowboys and Indians, to playing war. Trading off being the bad guy, as each of us took turns playing the German or Japanese soldier. It wasn’t until I was in my late twenties that I learned of Executive Order 9066, in which 110,000 JapaneseAmerican citizens were interned into prisoner camps on mainland America. I met my dear friend Akie Matsumoto in 1983, after I went to work for Home Savings of America, located in Irwindale, California. She worked in the purchasing department and was very quiet and unassuming. At 57, she still retained her striking beauty. As our friendship grew, we shared stories of our families’ past. I told her I had attended high school, just north of Sacramento, in the small town Marysville. She said she had been there, and lived there for a short time, but not under the best of cirThe Paper - 760.747.7119

cumstances. That was the day she began to tell me her story. Her father had been a very successful businessman in Los Angeles, until that fateful day in December of 1941, after the bombing of Pearl Harbor. That was when widespread racism and panic gripped our country by the throat, as 2nd and 3rd generation American born Japanese became targets of hate crimes, including

Akie’s family, as longtime business associates and loyal customers stopped frequenting her father’s business. However, before her father met financial ruin, the family was dealt a much more severe blow. According to the information on record at the Truman library: On February 11, 1942: The Secretary of War, Henry Stimson called on President

Roosevelt and recommends the immediate mass evacuation of all people of Japanese descent, from the nation’s Pacific Coast region of California, Oregon and Washington. There were sensationalistic headlines and articles such as those by columnist Walter Lippman, whose nationally syndicated column only threw gasoline on an already out of control inferno. On

and other subversive persons from the Pacific Coast region.

Lippman published the following statement in his column:

President Franklin D. Roosevelt issued Executive Order 9066, on February 19, 1942, which empowered the Secretary of War or any military commander authorized by him, to designate military areas and exclude any and all persons from said areas. Shortly before signing the order, the president received the following memorandum from his advisors, which stated;

The Pacific Coast is without. The Japanese Navy has been reconnoitering the coast more or less continuously. The Pacific Coast is officially a combat zone; some part of it may at any moment be a battlefield. Nobody’s constitutional rights include the right to reside and do business on a battlefield. And nobody ought to be on a battlefield who has no good reason for being there. The next day on February 13, 1942, the members of congress from the Pacific Coast region sent the president a letter recommending the immediate evacuation of all persons of Japanese lineage, both aliens and citizens alike, from the entire strategic area of California, Oregon and Washington states. The next day the U.S. Army’s Western Defense Command sent a memorandum to the Secretary of War recommending the evacuation of Japanese

This week, a compendium of wit, wisdom and neat stuff you can tell at parties. Enjoy! Blood Brothers An Arab Sheik was admitted to St Vincents Hospital for heart surgery, but prior to the surgery the doctors needed to store his blood in case the need arises. As the gentleman had a rare type of blood, it couldn't be found locally, so the call went out to all the states. Finally a Scot was located who had a similar blood type. The Scot willingly donated his blood for the Arab. After the surgery, the Arab

In time of national peril, any reasonable doubt must be resolved in favor of action to preserve the national safety, not for the purpose of punishing those whose liberty may be temporarily affected by such action, but for the purpose of protecting the freedom of the nation, which may be long impaired, if not permanently lost, by nonaction. During World War II there were only four known instances of attacks on the Western seaboard. February 23, 1942, a Japanese submarine shelled an oil refinery in Santa Barbara, California, sent the Scotsman as appreciation for giving his blood, a new BMW, diamonds and US dollars. A couple of days later, once again, the Arab had to go through a corrective surgery. His doctor telephoned the Scotsman who was more than happy to donate his blood again. After the second surgery, the Arab sent the Scotsman a thank-you card and a jar of candies. The Scotsman was shocked that the Arab this time did not reciprocate his kind gesture as he had anticipated. He phoned the Arab and asked him: "I thought you would be generous again, that you would give me a BMW, diamonds & money ... but you only gave me a thank-you card and a jar of candies". To this the Arab replied: "Aye, but noo’ ah hae Scottish blood in mah veins." Gun Wisdom Some words to the wise.

causing minor damage. June 21, 1942, another Japanese submarine shelled the Oregon coast, also causing little damage. Two incendiary bombs were dropped in the forest outside of Brookings, Oregon, by an aircraft launched from a submarine on September 9, 1942, and another two bombs were dropped by similar aircraft into the Oregon forest three weeks later, neither incident caused significant damage. These four incidents are the only known authenticated attacks to the American mainland during World War II.

the proclamation’s order were allowed to move to the homes of their choosing outside the designated military areas. Only a small handful of people, approximately 8,000 moved during that time frame.

A proclamation was issued by the Western Defense Command on March 2, 1942, stating; The western halves of California, Oregon and Washington, as well as the southern third of the state of Arizona are military areas and all persons of Japanese descent are to be removed from this area, voluntarily or by any means necessary.

Though Akie’s family hurried and tried to make the voluntary move within that time, it was a slow process as her father tried to take care of his business needs and was concerned with the selling of

‘Internment’ Cont. from Page 2 the family home and possessions, which of course took time. Time they did not have.

Though Japanese citizens were initially given until the end of March to take care of personal affairs and relocate voluntarily, this was not to be the case. On March 21, 1942, the president signed Public Law 77-503, which made it a federal crime for any person to refuse to leave a military area after being ordered to do so. Sadly, on March 27, 1942, the Western Defense Command also issued a new proclamation severely restricting the movements of any and all persons of Japanese descent in the Pacific Coast military area, further prohibiting them from leaving said imposed military area. The Western Defense Command determined the decision letting the Japanese citizens relocate caused disturbance and growing opposition from the local people involved. Hate crimes in those areas affected were on the rise as well, due to this occurrence.

By now ten internment camps had been readied in California, Arizona, Idaho, Wyoming, Colorado, Utah, and Arkansas, for the impending mass evacuation

of humanity. Representatives from the perspective states involved with the impending evacuation and internment, convened in Salt Lake City, Utah. Great opposition was

met. Due to the distrust of the Japanese citizens by the representatives present and by the local communities involved, it was determined all internees must be housed in evacuation camps and guarded by the Army.

Marysville, California, where they were temporarily housed. The fairgrounds were used as an assembly center where the internees were staged while waiting to be moved to their permanent detention home. The Marysville Assembly Center was only in use from May 8, 1942, until June 29, 1942.

When the final word came down, internees were given 48 hours to evacuate their homes and were only allowed to take a few personal possessions.

While in school I never knew this bit of community history and probably rightly so, as it is not a piece of history a community can be proud to be part of.

Time had simply run out for Akie’s family and many others, so in the spring of 1942 they came and took her family to their new home.

Akie’s family was relocated to the detention camp at Manzanar. It was the first camp to open on March 21, 1942, and was initially used as a processing center. At its peak the population rose to 10,046. Manzanar has since been made into a California State Park and has been featured on the program, California’s Gold, hosted by Huell Howser.

A young woman of 15 at the time, she was riding the roller coaster of emotion: fear, denial, anger, loss and resignation. Only able to take a few possessions, Akie watched as human vultures, like the carpetbaggers after the Civil War, flocked on her family, to legally rob them of all their possessions by paying mere pennies on the dollar, as they picked away at the h a p p y times and life her family had built. It b r o k e A k i e ’ s heart, seeing her parents despair as they attempted to sell everything they were unable to take with them. Her family was taken to

Akie felt her family was fortunate to be at Manzanar. The living quarters consisted of barrack type housing divided into apartments for families measuring 100 x 20 square feet. There was a hospital, post office, mess hall, canteen, recreation hall, library, schools, warehouse storage for cold and dry goods, and an auto repair facility. The internees grew vegetable and fruit gardens and tended to the livestock used to provide fresh eggs, milk and food. The camp facility was surrounded by both barbed wire and armed guards who were positioned around the perimeter.

While the living conditions at Manzanar were not ideal, the conditions at several other camps were a lot more primitive and many perished from inadequate medical care and some died from emotional stress. Also, anyone deemed to be troublesome or who disobeyed the rules, were sent to the Tule Lake detention camp, further eroding the fragile family structure of some, separating husbands from wives and children from parents. In 1943 all male and female internees over the age of 17 were given a loyalty test of two questions. 1. Are you willing to serve in the armed forces of the United States of America on combat duty wherever ordered? (The women were asked if they were willing to volunteer for the Army Nurse Corps or the Women’s Army Corps.) 2. Will you swear unqualified allegiance to the United States of America and faithfully defend the United States from any or all attack by foreign or domestic forces and forswear any form of allegiance or obedience to the Japanese emperor, to any foreign government, power or organization? Many young men and women, after taking the loyalty test, not only joined the United States military service, but many died while they defended the rights and the freedom of the very people and country which had taken theirs away. Pursuing liberty at any and all cost. ‘Internment’ Cont. on Page 5

Escondido Chief of Police, Jim Maher, was offered a raise but declined, saying he did not want a raise unless and until “the troops were properly compensated.” All other department heads, save for the City Treasurer, which is an elected position, accepted the raises. While neither the City Manager, nor the City Attorney, each of whom are paid $225,800 annually, received raises, other department heads did, as displayed top right.

and then I see this? I’m trying to find $25,000 to restore a Bookmobile and then I see two staffers receiving raises of $32,000 and $30,000 each? Where are our priorities? I asked Clay Phillips if these raises are proposed or have they been implemented?. He wouldn’t answer me; says he’ll discuss it in closed session during his performance review next week. I told him, ‘public employee pay schedules and raises have to be a matter of public record and should not have to be discussed in closed session.’ earned from selling ads in The Paper. He just wanted to stay active in the business world and keep his mind and body active.

I’ve been getting emails and phone calls from city staff and they are upset! I don’t blame them. I’m just livid about this. I’m so proud of Chief Jim Maher for refusing to accept the raise offered him until the staff was properly compensated and not just the department heads. That is true leadership.” Councilmember Ed Gallo said, “Everyone else is taking pay cuts or sitting on wage increases. Do they deserve it? Perhaps. But now is not the time. I only became aware of it Saturday. I don't know what bucket the money is coming from for the raises. I'm questioning the raises; it is simply not the appropriate time. It also makes it tough for us to negotiate with the EPOA (Escondido Police Officer’s Association). They’ve been asked to hold the line on wages and raises . . . . and now this. I guess the Council has the final hammer. We can say, "Mr. City Manager, you're out of line on this." Whether the raises can legally be rescinded or not, I don’t know at this point.” ‘Local News’ Cont. on Page 7 And that was no exaggerattion. So, it is almost nine years since Eric came on board the

Was it racism or sheer panic that led to this unjust and undeserved imprisonment? Many of the interned harbored the shame of an event that controlled them, unable to come to terms with their past. Paying for a sin they didn’t commit, while struggling to grasp the straws of lost friends, homes, possessions, honor, and dignity. Unlike their American born German or Italian brothers and sisters, the JapaneseAmericans couldn’t hide behind white skin and round eyes to escape imprisonment. Even 2nd and 3rd generation were Japanese-Americans imprisoned, stripped of everything and everyone, but each other. In May of 1944, Public Proclamation number 21, which became effective allowed 1945, January internees to return to their homes once more. Free once again, some viewed their internment as being placed in a concentration camp and a

blatant violation of the writ of Habeas Corpus. There were others who understood and viewed their internment as a necessary result of the bombing of Pearl Harbor. At the war’s end, many internees remained in the U.S. as they began rebuilding their lives, trying to begin anew. There were others much less forgiving who returned to Japan. Not one person involved in the mass exodus in the spring of 1942 had committed a crime against our country, nor did they pose a threat to our national security. Yet all were imprisoned on a “maybe.” Maybe they were dangerous. Maybe they were spies. Of the 110,000 relocated, no one was individually charged of a crime; they were simply ordered to report for internment, condemned for the suspected sins of their fathers. Two-thirds of the imprisoned were American citizens and half were children. During the war, only ten people were convicted of spying for Japan and all ten were

Caucasian. Akie spoke of how her family had made the trek to Manzanar to attend the reunions. Many of the friends she made during her detention, like her parents, had been lost to ravages of time. She would forever hold dear the memory of how they all came together as a community, with no anger, no bitterness. The bond they shared made them all stronger and would never die. Akie passed away in 2003, and we never lost contact until I lost her to death. She and her husband continued to go to the Manzanar reunions taking their children and grandchildren so no one would ever forget.

Fallbrook is well underway, with framing of the building nearing completion. The facility is being called the Silvergate Suites due to a building design with two “suites” that incorporate eight resident apartments around a common living and dining area. This unique design creates a comfortable, warm and home-like environment for its residents with Alzheimer’s, dementia or other memory related challenges. The single story building will have spacious 10-foot ceilings, large common areas for activities and gatherings, and bright resident apartments that open directly into the common living and dining rooms. An interior designer has recently been selected, and is working closely with ownership to provide an elegant yet warm décor that will compliment the building’s design. A safe and secure outdoor patio and garden will provide residents with a peaceful place to spend time outside. The $3.5 million project will provide the largest memory care facility in Fallbrook, with 16 new apartments and 24 beds. The facility is located at 420 Elbrook Dr. in Fallbrook.

Exorbitant salaries with no one being held accountable.

City staff have been told for the past three years they would have to forego raises because of the economic crisis and related budgetary problems. Staff seems to feel that these budgetary problems do not apply to department heads . . . and they don’t think that’s fair.

Other political observers point out that not only are the high salaries and high raises an issue but the impact these raises would have on the very liberal pension benefits department heads would receive if/when they retire. Typically, a retirement pension is calculated on the highest earnings an employee had for the final three years of his employ. A huge boost in salary in one of those years will skew the pension to a higher number which begs the question: is this fair to the taxpayers?

The city of Bell, California, got in major hot water because of city officials granting themselves and department heads liberal salaries and expense accounts. Mayor Abed bristled at the comparison to Bell. “Don’t even go there,” he said. “We are actually below what the average salaries are for positions of comparable jobs. We have to stay competitive.” Ed Gallo suggested also that a comparison of Bell, California to Escondido was “apples and oranges.” Possibly. But skeptics, and some city staffers, argue that chipping away at an iceberg bit by bit may eventually wind up at the same place.

As for Clay Phillips, he argues that many of these raises were merited as partial offsets to concessions department heads had made toward paying into their own retirement funds where the city had paid into the fund previously; also, he said that the money to fund these raises came largely from employees who have moved on and their positions were not filled. Many of their duties, however, were re-assigned to other employees and, with

If you believe in the 2nd Amendment, please share this. Irish Wedding At an Irish wedding reception someone yelled, "Would all the married men please stand next to the one person who has made your life worth living." The bartender was almost crushed to death. Scottish thought for the day: A recent study conducted by Aberdeen University found that the average Irishman walks about 900 miles a year. Another study by the Irish Medical Association found that Irishmen drink, on average, 22 gallons of alcohol a year! This means, on average, Irishmen get about 41 miles to the gallon.

We heard rumors about six months ago that this either had happened or was about to.

Escondido • Mayor Sam Abed Countdown to Cruisin’ Grand Next Friday, March 30th, hundreds of classic cars will return once again to the streets of Downtown Escondido to kick off another exciting season of Cruisin’ Grand! We are so proud to have one of the greatest ongoing traditions in San Diego County in our city. Cruisin’ Grand brings thousands of visitors to Escondido every Friday night throughout the summer. It’s an affordable, familyfriendly event that appeals to people of all ages, and it is a wonderful way to showcase our historic downtown. Even people who aren’t classic car enthusiasts will

enjoy strolling along Grand Avenue, stopping in for a bite at one of our many restaurants and people-watching on those warm summer nights. Each Friday night, awards are given to the most impressive pre1973, American-made cars. Theme nights include “Fire Truck Night”, “Nitro Night” and “AFX Night.” Cruisin’ Grand runs from 5-9 p.m. every Friday from March 30 to September 28 along Grand Avenue in historic Downtown Escondido. If you’ve never been there, don’t miss it this season! And for those die-hard fans that are already polishing their classic cars, we look forward to seeing you again! For more information and a schedule of events, visit www.cruisingrand.com .

Rancho Bernardo • Mayor Jerry Sanders Saving a San Diego Tradition Last week, I announced the restoration of funding for a service that was in jeopardy during the worst of the city’s budget crunch: the cleaning and maintenance of 186 concrete fire pits at the city’s beaches and shoreline parks. Now, with our ongoing spending and revenues finally in line, we are able to add the fire pit maintenance to the list of services we can restore in the city’s budget. For the past three and a half years, the community has generously

pulled together to help keep the fire pits ablaze. The San Diego Foundation, the La Jolla Foundation and the San Diego Convention and Visitor’s Bureau have all provided funding. In addition, the offices of City Council President Pro Tem Kevin Faulconer and City Councilmember Sherri Lightner contributed funds to keep the fire pits in operation as we worked to get our budget in order. Gathering around a beach fire pit with friends and family is part of the San Diego experience and is enjoyed by both locals and visitors. While we still have reforms to complete, the city’s financial recovery is well on its way, and we’re pleased to be able to restore funding for a San Diego tradition.

Vista • Mayor Judy Ritter Moonlight S t a g e Productions is concluding the 2012 Winter Season with its final production of the hit Off-Broadway comedy, Beau Jest, by James Sherman and directed by Christopher Williams. Performances begin this evening at the AVO Playhouse in downtown Vista and the show runs through April 8. Imagine “My Big Fat Greek Wedding” meets “The Wedding Singer” with a little “Fiddler on the Roof” thrown in and you have the makings of a delightful family comedy full of crazy confusion, hilarity and romance. The AVO Playhouse is one of our hid-

den gems of Vista. Built in 1948 as a neighborhood movie house, the AVO Playhouse was purchased by the City of Vista and elegantly restored to accommodate live performances in 1995. Annually, over 40,000 people are entertained at the AVO Playhouse. Several dance companies and children's theatre organizations grace the stage regularly throughout the year. The AVO is also a community service facility hosting city-sponsored gatherings, social service organization meetings, and school graduations. Ticket information for Beau Jest is on line at moonlightstage.com or by calling the Vistix Office at 760724-2110.

San Marcos • Mayor Jim Desmond City’s Future Detailed in “Guiding Themes” Just recently, the City Council adopted a new general plan that will serve as its blueprint for the next two decades. The plan was developed over two years; in more than 36 public meetings; and with feedback from residents, property owners and businesses. The plan will guide the city in areas like land use, mobility, open space, resource conservation and safety. Probably most important, it incorporates seven “guiding themes” developed by the community to ensure the San Marcos of tomorrow resembles what residents, businesses and stakeholders envision today. Those themes include creating a vibrant destination city alive with people, shops, restaurants, events and street life. It means

we’ll focus on building a strong local economy and employment base; continuing our agricultural heritage; and supporting our emerging notoriety as an educational and academic hub. We will also focus on connecting people with places in a variety of ways --- not just by car, but also by public transportation, foot and bike. San Marcos will also be known for sustaining environmental quality and building a greener community; and for providing a safe and healthy community for its residents. Finally, we will be a city with choices --providing more variety for shopping, dining, recreation, cultural and entertainment experiences. As we move ahead towards these new horizons, the city will continue to rely on your participation in this community because San Marcos belongs to all of us. To learn more, visit www.san-marcos.net.

Oceanside • Mayor Jim Wood Pirates Ashore @ OMA Set out for a night of adventure as the Oceanside Museum of Art hoists its sails with “Arrrt After Dark: PIRATES ASHORE” event. Inspired by the striking sculptures in John Taylor: Ghost Fleet. OMA will create a pirate town filled with visual treasures.

Join in the mayhem as BViolin and The Gypsy Knights weave a unique mix of world fusion

music and buccaneer ballads, and dance the night away. From what OMA is telling me, guests will enjoy complimentary grog from Magners Cider, craft beer, a wine lounge and Starbucks coffee along with appetizers by Harney Sushi and BCDC Restaurant; – even a burger and treat van will be on hand to provide delicious food for purchase. So come dressed in your favorite pirate gear and take a photo with Mister Mac and the Mermaids.

Taxpayers on the Hook for Pension Bill A growing number of experts are warning that the California Public Employees' Retirement System, also known as CalPERS, is in trouble. This week, pension managers lowered the fund’s investment forecast. This reduced forecast will require the state to increase its pension contribution by $167 million each year. This decision once again signals the need for immediate reform. State pension costs already comprise nearly $4 billion of the General Fund. For perspective, $4 billion is more than the state spends to operate our community college system and the entire state park system combined. When taxpayers are forced to pay for pensions first, it means there is less money to spend on important priorities like education and public safety. We are unable to spend money on vital

was developed in the 1990s as a universal interface for all external devices (printers, cameras, external hard drives etc) and could transfer data at 12Kbits/sec. USB 2.0 was 40 times faster at 480Kbits/sec. USB 3.0 became available last year with a theoretical peak data transfer rate of 5.0Mbits, ten times as fast as USB 2.0. In real world tests USB 3.0 transfers data about four times faster than USB 2.0. It can significantly cut the time required to transfer files from external storage devices. E-SATA (external serial advanced technology attachment) is an external motherboard option that allows you to access the SATA interface (the internal interface used by your hard drive and optical drive) from an external device. It is somewhat faster than USB 3.0 for file transfers but, unlike USB, E-SATA has the ability to actually boot and run your PC from an external hard drive. For some users that’s an important feature. HDMI (high definition media interface) and S/PDIF (Sony/Phillips digital connect interface) are motherboard options for digital video and/or audio interface from your PC to external multimedia devices i.e. TV, amplifiers and home theater systems. HDMI links both

programs because the state is obligated to cover pension shortfalls. Efforts to establish a more realistic forecast and create stability in the pension system are welcomed. However, simply adjusting the forecast does not do enough. To preserve the fund and ensure fairness for both government workers and taxpayers, the pension system must be reformed. We cannot afford to wait. 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.

All but the very low end PCs will also have a PCI-X slot on the motherboard to accommodate a video upgrade or to replace the integrated video in case of failure. Motherboards options for 2 to 4 PCI-X slots accommodate multiple video cards for highend graphics and gaming applications.

parts. An SSD replaces the HDD (hard drive) and becomes the “C” or main drive in your PC. SSDs are far faster than the spinning drives and virtually indestructible but they are far more expensive. Today a quality 128GB SSD drive costs nearly $200 or about twice as much as a 1.0TB (terabyte) HDD eight times its size. When we put an SSD in a system it is usually in combination with a standard HDD. The SSD serves as a lightning fast “C” drive and the HDD as a cost effective mass storage “D” drive.

SSD (solid state drive) is an option unlike those above in that it is a device, not a motherboard feature. Like a flash drive or memory card it has no moving

Repeal the Fire Tax I was pleased to join my colleagues at a press conference Thursday in support of AB 1506 which will repeal the fire tax levied upon rural residents. The newly-enacted $150 fire tax to fund CalFire, which will be imposed on the owners of over 800,000 properties, was passed as part of the 2011-12 state budget. Assembly Bill 29x requires homeowners in State Responsibility Areas to pay the tax of $150 annually, but they do not receive any additional fire protection. Not only does this tax unfairly target rural residents, I believe the fire tax violates Proposition 26 which requires any new fee or tax that broadly benefits the pub-

lic to pass by a two-thirds vote of the Legislature. Assembly Bill 29x passed with only a majority vote. The Board of Equalization recently estimated fire tax revenues could be as low as $67 million. The Governor's reliance on up to $88 million from the illegal tax could create an additional hole in the 2012-13 budget. This uncertainty will put additional pressure on the budget. I encourage everyone to voice their opinion on AB 1506 and join me in supporting the repeal of the fire tax. To find out if you live in an area that will be assessed the fee, please visit: www.bof.fire.ca.gov/sra_vie wer/

It appears here that President Garcia is recalling the situation a number of years ago when there was a confrontational mode between the city officials and the EPOA. The EPOA, at that time, ran a series of ads and direct mail pieces that were very confrontational and city officials and the public alike were dismayed at the tactic. Today, most observers agree that the EPOA have, indeed, conducted themselves in a much more professional manner. Negotiations,

For more information, call Lorraine at 760-632-7111 or email to XLT@roadrunner.com. The Agriculture Dept. at Escondido High School offers students real "handson" experience in raising livestock and taking that livestock to the S.D. County Fair. Last year over 75 animals went to the County Fair. Escondido High School's Ag Department is the largest in San Diego County. Kayla Allen is a sophomore at EHS, and as a Freshman and member of the Future Farmers of America (FFA) through EHS's Ag Dept., she raised a goat named Sampson. She showed him in competition where he won several ribbons, and she chose to find a home for him instead of selling him at auction. This year she has decided to raise two goats, and it will cost approximately $800-$1,000 to purchase, feed and train them between March and the County Fair in late June. She needs help to take on this project. If you are able, she would very much appreciate a donation of any amount. Call 760.580.0488 if you want to help Kayla.
