You and I have read of, and viewed on tv, horrendous reports of couples anxious to adopt a child . . . and spending $10,000, $20,000 or more - and sometimes finding the ‘adoption’ was little more than a sham. I was amazed recently to visit with a client who told me that she and her new husband had adopted a child through the county of San Diego and the cost . . . was almost nothing. Intrigued, we decided to pursue this story. We felt there are probably readers of The Paper who may have the same need and desire . . . to have a child become part of their family. It can be done. Here’s a step-bystep guide and answers to many questions you might have.
Probably one of the best examples of child adoption rests with our own County Supervisor, Dave Roberts. He and his partner have five adopted children and one foster child they hope to adopt.
We’ll deal with the basics in this story, of how to adopt, who to contact, what is required, etc., but first, let’s hear what it’s like from someone who has been there and done that. The Paper: When did you first develop an interest in adoption?
Supervisor Dave Roberts: Well, my older brother was adopted so it was something our family was comfortable with. About 20 years ago I moved to San Diego and one day at the Del Mar Fair I came across a booth manned by San Diego County personnel and dealing with foster care and adoptions.
County Supervisor Dave Roberts, his partner, and his adopted kids. **
Based on those conversations, I quickly developed an interest in fostering and adopting. That was 20 years ago. The Paper: How long after you began the process did it take before you adopted your first child?
Supervisor Roberts: About eight months. There is a process to be completed; they are very thorough. You are assigned to an office, you are given an introductory class . . . then showed classes you are required to take . . . once we finished that program, which took about 6-7 months we were then ‘matched.’ The Paper - 760.747.7119
The match itself took place in two weeks.
That was Robert, our first adopted son; today, he is 19, and in the Air Force, serving in San Antonio, Texas. He was an Eagle Scout and excellent student. We are so very proud of him.

We adopted Robert 15 years ago - his sister lived with us for awhile but that didn’t work out. Sometimes there are issues you simply can’t control. It turns out, however, that the county had another child waiting in the wings. They reviewed the facts of our two cases to see if
they matched. They did, so we adopted Alex. Today, he is 14 and a freshman at Torrey Pines High School. Three of our adopted kids are siblings and the foster child is also a sibling. We await court approval of that adoption as well.

‘A Child Waiting For You’ Cont. from Page 1
After adopting these two kids we had a call one day from our social worker, wondering if we would consider a third child. It was an emergency situation and the child had to be moved within 72 hours. We talked with our social worker and amongst ourselves. One concern was that if the foster child came into the home and if/when the foster left, would that create an uncomfortable situation for all parties? We learned we had a very good chance to adopt the child. Two days after Christmas, however, we received a distressing call from our social worker with bad news. The county had determined the child should go back to the birth mother. Based on what we had learned during the background session following the emergency call, we felt that was not the right decision and sought alternatives.
We retained a personal attorney to file for de facto parental status. The judge sided with us and said the boy, Julian, could stay with us. He ruled it was in the child’s best interest to be adopted by us.
This episode lit a fire under me and got me interested in what rules the county had in foster care and adoption. I became

St. FRANCIS: It's the tribes that settled there, Lord. The Suburbanites. They started calling your flowers 'weeds' and went to great lengths to kill them and replace them with grass. GOD: Grass? But, it's so boring. It's not colorful. It doesn't attract butterflies, birds and bees; only grubs and sod worms. It's sensitive to temperatures. Do these Suburbanites really want all that grass growing there?
ST. FRANCIS: Apparently so, Lord. They go to great pains to grow it and keep it green. They begin each spring by fertilizing grass and poisoning any other plant that crops up in the lawn.
very active in trying to make the system more effective and responsive to the needs of all parties, the child, first and foremost, but also the foster parents and/or adoptive parents, as well as the birth parents.
It was, in fact, one of the biggest reasons I became a candidate for elective office. The more I learned of problems within the foster/adoption element of the county, the more I wanted to be part of the solution. Two months later the judge called and said . . . we have two more children. They should go into foster care . . . they were . Natalee and - Joe, siblings to Julian. We fostered them, then adopted them.
Last August we were approached to take another child - this would be the fourth and final sibling adopted from this family. It is in court now, we are hoping the judge will approve this adoption as well. As you can probably tell, the first priorty of the county is to keep the family together if at all possible. County staff are angels on earth, working hard to ensure this happens. Often it works, sometimes it doesn’t.
They always put the child first what is in the child's best interest becomes the deciding element. Recently I and Supervisor Greg Cox put together the Exceptional
GOD: The spring rains and warm weather probably make grass grow really fast. That must make the Suburbanites happy. ST FRANCIS: Apparently not, Lord. As soon as it grows a little, they cut it-sometimes twice a week.
GOD: They cut it? Do they then bale it like hay?
ST. FRANCIS: Not exactly, Lord. Most of them rake it up and put it in bags. GOD: They bag it? Why? Is it a cash crop? Do they sell it?
ST. FRANCIS: No, Sir, just the opposite. They pay to throw it away.
GOD: Now, let me get this straight. They fertilize grass so it will grow. And, when it does grow, they cut it off and pay to throw it away? ST. FRANCIS: Yes, Sir.
GOD: These Suburbanites must be relieved in the summer when we cut back on the rain and turn up the heat. That surely slows the growth and saves them a lot of work.
ST. FRANCIS: You aren't going to believe this, Lord. When the grass stops growing so fast, they drag out hoses and pay more money to water it, so
Family Members Program. I’m proud to say we have been able to place 36 out of an initial group of 50 kids waiting for foster or adoptive homes.
We’ve also arranged for Ombudsmen . . . trusted intermediaries, one for each system, foster and adoption. If there are problems these ombudsmen learn about them and take them before judges. Foster parents are required by law to report any bad things that are happening. Sometimes those opinions get overlooked . . . we wanted ombudsmen to be in both systems and get them heard by authorities and judges. It is working. We've also arranged for staff to go out and ask foster and adoptive parents as to what could be done to improve the system. We always seek input as to how to streamline the process yet ensure the integrity of the system. We are trying to incorporate the paperwork so qualifying for one system should set you up to qualify in the other, fingerprints, background checks, etc. That, too, appears on its way to becoming reality.
Presently, the procedure is that a child enters the Polinsky Children’s Center. The staff then evaluates the child to determine at the intake center whether to refer the child to a group home or a foster home. What options are available to the child that will keep him/her
they can continue to mow it and pay to get rid of it.
GOD: What nonsense. At least they kept some of the trees. That was a sheer stroke of genius, if I do say so myself. The trees grow leaves in the spring to provide beauty and shade in the summer. In the autumn, they fall to the ground and form a natural blanket to keep moisture in the soil and protect the trees and bushes. It's a natural cycle of life. ST. FRANCIS: You better sit down, Lord. The Suburbanites have drawn a new circle. As soon as the leaves fall, they rake them into great piles and pay to have them hauled away. GOD: No!? What do they do to protect the shrub and tree roots in the winter to keep the soil moist and loose? ST. FRANCIS: After throwing away the leaves, they go out and buy something which they call mulch. They haul it home and spread it around in place of the leaves. GOD: And where do they get this mulch?
ST. FRANCIS: They cut down trees and grind them up to make the mulch.
GOD: Enough! I don't want to think about this anymore. St. Catherine, you're in charge

It is from this pool of children that you just might find your future son or daughter. The Paper: What impact has the adoptions had on your life?
Supervisor Roberts: Oh, my! It’s amazing! Having six kids, five adopted and one foster . . . well, they’ve turned our life upside down. Our oldest boy was an Eagle Scout and is now a member of the Air Force. He’s made us very proud. We knew of his family, we knew of the abuse he had suffered, there had been four generations of abuse. We met his great grandparents and they broke down and wept, telling us ‘you have pulled him out of the cycle this family was in.’
We know we're helping them become super responsible kids. Every day, life is special. We always have breakfast together. One day I’ll drive them to school, another day Wally will drive them to school. Wally is retired military so he is home all day, looking after the kids. He also keeps the house organized in a somewhat military fashion. We need to do all we can to improve their lives and our world.

ST. CATHERINE: 'Dumb and Dumber', Lord. It's a story about....

1. She was in the bathroom, putting on her makeup, under the watchful eyes of her young granddaughter, as she'd done many times before. After she applied her lipstick and started to leave, the little one said, "But Grandma, you forgot to kiss the toilet paper goodbye!" I will probably never put lipstick on again without thinking about kissing the toilet paper good-bye. 2. My young grandson called the other day to wish me Happy Birthday. He asked me how old I was, and I told him, "80". My grandson was quiet for a moment, and then he asked, "Did you start at 1?"
3. After putting her grandchildren to bed, a grandmother changed into old slacks and a droopy blouse and proceeded to wash her hair. As she heard the children getting more and more rambunctious, her

We have arranged for the kids to go back and see/talk to birth mother and/or foster parents, if/when they wish. We also know folks who have had biological children but now want to adopt. The county can help.
We have so many kids in San Diego County that need loving homes and our staff does such superb work to bring them together with loving parents.
I want to provide all the tools we need to get more kids fostered and adopted. One great tool is Voices for Children, where there is a court appointed child advocate program . . . these advocates study the child and the files and testifies in court as to what is in the best interest of the child. Riverside County has now contracted with our Voices for Children program. Of our family, four kids are in scouts, one daughter is in hula, all of them are in sports. All these kids waiting for fostering or adoption need is a yard to play in and parents to pay attention to them.
As I see it, we are the All American family. The kids are doing wonderfully well. They’re very busy. We’re very busy. We’re all very, very happy. Most of the information for this story, in addition to Supervisor Robert’s comments, came from an excellent county website located here: www.iadoptu.org
First . . . what is the source of adoptable children under the county’s care?
Some infants, toddlers and older children have been removed from their parents because they have been abused or neglected and cannot return to those parents. These children have been in the care of the State and are in foster care while they wait for a permanent home. They and their siblings may have emotional, behavioral, developmental, or medical challenges. Most, if not all, of the costs associated with the adoption of older children are paid by the State.
You are generally able to narrow your choices down to age range or group and gender. The county provides in-depth background on the child . . . and arranges for you and the child to meet and to get used to each other, to know each other.
How many children are available to adopt with San Diego County Adoptions? At any given time there are over 3,000 children in foster care in San Diego County. There are over 40 children waiting for forever families in any given month. These are children who
are not currently with foster parents or relatives who are willing to adopt them. What are the ages of children needing homes?
The county has children of all ages (0 -17) available for adoption. Their greatest need is for children ages 7-17, medically fragile children of all ages and children of varied ethnic backgrounds. They also need families who are open to adopting children whose birth parents have mental illness and drug use history. There are many sibling sets of two, three, and more children that need adoptive families willing to take them as a group so that they do not need to be separated. What are the requirements to adopt through the San Diego County Adoptions Program?
Requirements include residency in San Diego County, completion of a medical exam including TB test, employment verification, and being at least 18 years of age. We do not discriminate based on age, gender, marital status, religion, or sexual orientation. How do I get started?
Call the Kidsline at 1-877792-KIDS (5437) to register for an upcoming orientation. This meeting will introduce you to the adoption/Resource Family process.
If you wish to speak to an adoptions worker, you may call 1-877-423-6788 (1-877 IADOPT-U) during regular business hours, or you may call the Kidsline at 1-877-7925437 (1-877-792 KIDS) for more information about the foster licensing process. What does the adoptive home study process include?
The adoption process begins with prospective applicants attending an orientation meeting (an exception is made for relatives and foster parents when a child in question is already living in the home). These free monthly meeting are open to the public (preregistration is required) and provide an overview of the adoptions process. The home study includes, but is not limited to, the completion of specific required paperwork; interviews (including home visits); fingerprinting for criminal clearance; child abuse clearances; references and assessment of individual and family functioning. The home study also focuses on education and training regarding the adoption triad, grief and loss and pertinent adoption issues. An adoption Applicant Social Worker is assigned to each family to assist with the completion of
the home study process.
What is a “matching event?”
The San Diego County Adoptions Program hosts "matching events" for families with approved home studies. These events provide families with the opportunity to obtain information about the children available for adoption in the San Diego area. How do I get matched with a child(ren) for adoption?
San Diego County has an Adoption Placement Committee that meets weekly. Once a family’s home study is approved they go into our waiting pool. At the Placement Committee meeting, children needing placement are screened and 5-8 families that best meet the needs of the child(ren) are selected. A database is used to assist in this process. The placement coordinator then sends the home studies selected by the committee to the children’s social worker, who reads them and talks with the applicant workers for each home study. A family that best meets the children’s needs is selected. The children’s worker, the applicant worker and both of their supervisors meet to complete the selection process and finalize it. The family is then contacted and asked to come in for a presentation of the Telling Report. What is a Telling?
The Telling is a written report that documents all the information that is known to San Diego County about the waiting child. This includes birth family information, characteristics, social functioning, academic functioning, psychological functioning, developmental functioning, placement history, medical information, and pictures if available. The Telling is usually presented by the children’s social worker to the applicant family and their applicant social worker. After the Telling, the applicant family is given some time to decide if they want to go forward and meet the child. The family is asked to commit to the match before proceeding to the first meeting, which is the next step. What is a First Meeting?
The First Meeting is an introductory visit with the child. This visit usually takes place at the foster home or a location near the foster home that is familiar to the child. This visit can often be very exciting and anxiety filled for both the applicant and the child. The children’s social worker will have prepared the child and will be present at the First Meeting to comfort the child. The applicant social worker is also present to support the applicant family. How long does it take to complete the adoption process?
Sarge is a 6 year old German Shepherd we rescued from Baldwin Park Shelter. He has hip dysplasia and we are planning to correct that soon with surgery as soon as we can complete the fund raising. Before we do the surgery however we need a good place for him to recuperate and we believe a much better place for that is a "home." We pay $200 a month for fostering a dog with these heightened needs and of course, all other costs.
It would be most helpful to have someone with German Shepherd experience but general dog experience would also be helpful. Due to the recuperation need, we think small children in the home would probably not be a wise choice. If you think you might like to help out, we'd like to hear from you. We anticipate a two month period for his rehab time. Contact Bruce at 760-6129156.
(You can see more information on “Sarge” on Page 10 of this issue.)
It varies depending upon the timeliness of paperwork and the child(ren) requested. An adoptive home study with San Diego County Adoptions may take an average of six months to one year. Generally, the more open a family is in regards to age, characteristics, and number of children, the more likely they will receive a placement sooner. The length of time from when a child is placed in your home to when the adoption is finalized can vary. What Does San Diego County Adoptions offer people who adopt? San Diego County Adoptions is the oldest licensed public adoption agency in California, licensed since 1948. They offer:

The Paper • Page 4 • March 05, 2015 Serious Injury Accident Escondido
On Thursday, February 26th, at about 3:47 pm, officers from the Escondido Police Department were dispatched to the intersection of Second Ave and Kalmia St regarding a serious injury collision involving two vehicles. Officers arrived on scene and found a red Chevy Suburban and a black motorcycle in the middle of the intersection.
Preliminary investigation indicates the driver of the Suburban, 36-year-old Maria Chavez of Escondido, was driving northbound on Kalmia St. After stopping for the stopsign, she began crossing Second Ave and crossed directly into the path of the driver of the motorcycle, identified as 46-year-old Roberto Miranda Aguilar of Escondido. Aguilar was unable to stop in time to avoid colliding into the driver side of the Suburban.
Aguilar sustained significant injuries and was transported to Palomar Hospital by Escondido paramedics for treatment. Aguilar has a suspended driver’s license. Chavez was uninjured and there were no passengers in her car. Chavez is also unlicensed. The traffic investigation is ongoing at this time and is
being conducted by Officer Kyle Beierly of the Traffic Division. Decision on Escondido Country Club Hearing Delayed
Judge Earl H. Maas III heard arguments on February 26 from attorneys for Stuck in the Rough, LLC and for the city of Escondido.
The argument is whether the Escondido Country Club should be designated as permanent open space or whether Stuck in the Rough LLC has a right to proceed with developing the property which he purchased in good faith at the proper zoning for such a development. The city had made a pre-emptory change to the general plan which declared the property to be open space and would thus preclude development. The developer argues that action taken was illegal and constitutes an illegal ‘taking’ of his property and the right to earn a return on his investment. After hearing from both sides the judge deferred a decision for two weeks. Judge Maas has already stated that he

Man About Town
Lots of wonderful feelings in this crazy old world . . . but it’s hard to beat the feelings of warmth, love, and affection you get when you come back home after a 4-5 day trip out of town and are greeted by your pups. Evelyn and I were in Monterey, CA., for a Kiwanis event and had a wonderful time. But we both missed our pups, Trixie (whom Evelyn insists on calling Amber) and Cindy. We call them ‘our daughters.’
Several times we called home to check for messages and ask how ‘the girls’ were doing. “Well, they’re missing you,” said Monty, Evelyn’s eldest
When we returned, however, all was forgiven. They went nuts when they saw Evelyn come through the door. She got plenty of kisses, lots of whimpers and welcoming cries. The pups would run to me and welcome me . . . and then run back to their true love in life . . . mommy. Then they’d run back to me to let me know that I, too, was loved. Just not as much as mommy.
They couldn’t wait to go to bed with mommy and daddy last night. They snuggle close and then duck under the blankets.
All was well. We were together again. A family.
The cats, as cats do, looked at us. And yawned. ••••• A touching story . . . While in Monterey we did some work for The Paper, gathering information for future articles and at least one cover story.

The Immature Mayor of Escondido
The City Council and Escondido's means of communicating to thousands who can't afford the Union Trib has been embarrassed by their Mayor, Sam Abed, for his pettiness and immaturity in not participating in your paper's "A Letter from the Mayor."

Re: Puppy Mills
I read your article on the puppy mills with much interest. I, too, believe that the puppy mills should be put out of business, if they do not treat
their animals humanely. However I do NOT believe that they have chosen the correct target to stop the mistreatment of the animals in their care. The pet store owners are NOT the ones who are mistreating the pets. The puppy mills are the correct target for the Animal defense team. If the puppy mills were regulated and inspected on a regular bases and had to be certified as meeting a certain level of compliance, then pet stores could only buy from a certified animal breeder. And then the pet store would have to show proper papers for each pet.
I have had an occasion to give a pet store in the Escondido Mall a feral kitten. After I socialized the kitten. I found the that pet store owners treated this kitten with much care. They sold it to a good family who cared for it. The new owner spent good money for the kitten. As such I believe they would give it good care. I also found out that the pet stores get some of their animals from the humane society. This allows for the pets to get a good home that they might not otherwise get. Now that these pet stores are out of business,

We went out scouting, wanting to contact the Chamber of Commerce and came across the Monterey Peninsula Chamber of Commerce, located on a “Ragsdale Drive.”
I returned to our rental car and told Evelyn I had directions but then the young lady ran up to the car . . . “Joo follow me. I take you. I show you.”
We stopped at a gas station to ask directions. Saw a woman fueling her SUV and asked her, “are you local?”
In fact, I had plugged in my GPS and was getting instructions as to where to go . . . but we followed the girls and they delivered us right to the front door, easily a five to six mile drive.
As happens, we got lost.
“Am I loca?” (The Spanish word for crazy is ‘loco.’) I laughed and said, “no, not loca, local. Do you live here? Do you know the area? We’re lost and need directions.”
“Oh,” she smiled, “jes. Where you like to go?” I showed her the address on the brochure and she began to give me directions, which I jotted down. She and her girlfriend were both Mexican and we spoke in a combined English and my broken Spanish. That I knew enough Spanish to convey my needs seemed to impress and please them. But, since I have very little accent with my Spanish, they assumed I was fluent. I’m not. When that happens the Latinos I’m talking to tend to rattle off in Spanish, rapidly, assuming I’m understanding it all. I get about 60% of it.
We agreed. And we followed her.
I got out of the car to thank them. They graciously accepted our thanks and said they had to go as they were late for their work. “What work do you do?” I asked. “We clean houses.”
“Oh, my heavens,” I said, “we don’t want you to be late for your work because of us.” I gave the two of them a big hug and they gave great big smiles back. I asked for their names.

patience grew thin. Finally, she threw a towel around her head and stormed into their room, putting them back to bed with stern warnings. As she left the room, she heard the three-year-old say with a trembling voice, "Who was THAT?"
4. A grandmother was telling her little granddaughter what her own childhood was like. "We used to skate outside on a pond. I had a swing made from a tire; it hung from a tree in our front yard. We rode our pony. We picked wild raspberries in the woods." The little girl was wide-eyed, taking all this in. At last she said, "I sure wish I'd gotten to know you sooner!" 5. My grandson was visiting one day when he asked, "Grandma, do you know how you and God are alike?" I mentally polished my halo and replied, "No, how are we alike?'' "You're both old," he replied. 6. A little girl was diligently pounding away on her grandfather's word processor. She told him she was writing a story. "What's it about?", he asked. "I don't know", she replied. "I can't read."
7. I didn't know if my granddaughter had learned her colors yet, so I decided to test her. I would point out something and ask what color it was. She would tell me and was always correct. It was fun for me, so I continued. At last, she headed for the door, saying, "Grandma, I think you should try to figure out some of these colors yourself!"
8. When my grandson Billy and I entered our vacation cabin, we kept the lights off until we were inside to avoid attracting pesky insects. Still, a few fireflies followed us in. Noticing them before I did, Billy whispered, "It's no use Grandpa. Now the mosquitoes are coming after us with flashlights." 9. When my grandson asked me how old I was, I teasingly replied, "I'm not sure." "Look in your underwear, Grandpa", he advised, "Mine says 'I'm 4 to 6'."
10. A second grader came home from school and said to her grandmother, "Grandma, guess what? We learned how to make babies today." The grandmother, more than a little surprised, tried to keep her cool. "That's interesting." she said . . . "How do you make

At best, it is assumed that one side or the other will gain a temporary legal victory . . . and then it’s on to the appeal court. There is a hope among observers that some compromise will be reached between both parties.
Michael Schlesinger, the principal of SITR, LLC., has said repeatedly he is willing to compromise. However, he says, the other side has made no proposals that appear to have a reasonable chance at success. Oceanside Police Break Up Street Brawl, Two Seriously Injured
A medical helicopter was called in to transport two Oceanside stabbing victims Thursday night to Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla, following a brawl involving 15 to 20 persons near Pier View and Myers St. Police responded to a 911 call about 9:30pm and found one young man with multiple stab wounds; another man who had been stabbed was then found about a block from where the
first victim was located. As police approached the brawl participants scattered. It was not yet determined what prompted the stabbings or if the fight was gang related, according to police. Witnesses said some of the fight participants were young adults of different races, Regalado said. An update on the condition of the victims was not available.
One was believed to be about 19, and the other in his early to mid 20s. San Marcos State of the City Report Given by Mayor Jim Desmond

Regarding the "Chuckles Section" from issue 2/26/15:
The joke regarding the man who emailed or texted his neighbor about using his wife then realizing his spell check was off, he meant using the guy's Wi-Fi not wife, after the man shot and killed his wife thinking the man meant he had sex with his wife. This was in such poor taste I was shocked that someone would think that is funny and to even print it - It was NOT funny and in very poor taste. You do realize there is a problem with domestic violence and husbands and wives murdering one another and any family or friends that happen to be there (just read any paper and via any news source)- Just extremely offensive and so not funny - It is sad and very disturbing that this was in your paper - even more so that it

Some of you have expressed interest in receiving a regular newsletter from my office to keep you updated about goings-on in Sacramento as well as issues impacting the 75th Assembly District. My experience with newsletters, both mailed and electronic, has led me to the firm conviction that most are simply trashed without being read.
Nevertheless, maintaining communications is very important in a representative republic such as ours. Elected representatives and their constituents should hear from one another on a regular basis for the democratic process to function properly. To this end, sending out occasional emails about specific subjects can be an efficient method of disseminating information at minimum cost.

12. A grandfather was delivering his grandchildren to their home one day when a fire truck zoomed past. Sitting in the front seat of the fire truck was a Dalmatian dog. The children started discussing the dog's duties. "They use him to keep crowds back", said one child. "No," said another. "He's just for good luck." A third child brought the argument to a close. "You're both wrong . They use the dogs," she said firmly, "to find the fire hydrants."

Historically Speaking by Tom Morrow
He was born Edward Rickenbacher Oct. 8, 1890, in Columbus, Ohio to Swiss German-speaking immigrants. When World War I broke out, he exchanged the “h” for a “k” to sound less German.
At age 13, Rickenbacker’s schooling ended after the 1904 death of his father. The youngster found odd jobs and enrolled in a mechanical engineering correspondence course. He was especially fascinated with automobiles.

America’s First Flying Ace: Eddie Rickenbacker
He quit school in the 7th grade; he was fascinated by machines; joined the U.S. Army as a mechanic; taught himself how to fly and became an “ace” in less than 30 days to become America’s most successful fighter pilot. This unusual man became a champion race car driver and auto designer, a government consultant on military affairs, was adrift at sea for 24 days, clashed with President Franklin Roosevelt over air mail, and headed up a major airline. These are but a few exploits in the life of Eddie Rickenbacker.
As a race car driver, Rickenbacker competed in the Indianapolis 500 four times earning the nickname, "Fast Eddie.”
In 1916, Rickenbacker traveled to London to develop a race car, but because of his name, he was a suspected spy. In 1917, the United States declared war on Germany and Rickenbacker enlisted in the U.S. Army. He was promoted to Sergeant First Class because of his mechanical abilities and assigned to the U.S. Air Service's pursuit training facility where he learned to fly during his spare time. When he convinced senior officers of his flying abilities, Rickenbacker was placed in

Do you begin to understand why I love Monterey so much?
Everyone we ran into were like that. Helpful, courteous, always a big smile on their faces. Bright, sunny days, beautiful scenery, nice, clean streets, lovely businesses ... just a great place to visit. And to live.
This is about the third of fourth time I’ve fallen in love with Monterey. If I didn’t live here in North County, that’s likely where I would move.
I was first introduced to Monterey when I reported for duty with the Army at the old Fort Ord (now largely a college campus).
When I left Omaha, my home town, the snow was up to my backside. A plane ride west, courtesy of Uncle Sam, landing at Oakland, then bussing into Fort Ord . . . with all its sunshine, sandy beaches, beautiful Pacific Ocean . . . and I was hooked. It may seem strange to say “I
enjoyed basic training,” but “I enjoyed basic training.” Fort Ord was a wonderful training base. Sorry to see that it is no more. Lots of good memories there. Speaking of matters military, we had a personally guided tour of The Presidio at Monterey. Fascinating!
Many in the military are aware that this is the Language Training School for all military branches. Sadly, many members of the military are not aware of that.
This is the finest, best, language school in the world! Only the best and the brightest of the military are allowed to participate in this demanding course. Some of the more difficult languages to learn, such as Arabic, Chinese, Korean, etc., require a 64 week course. That is 64 weeks of classroom work for 6-7 hours plus 2-3 hours of homework per day. In addition to all of this, the students still have to do their PT (Physical Training). So many wonderful stories and opportunities here, we’ll be doing a cover story on the Presidio at Monterey soon. Stay tuned!
Escondido, CA—In a 2002 issue of Neurosurgical Focus, a peerreviewed article was published by a Dr. Michael D. Martin, MD et al. in which the third sentence states: “The disc itself is active tissue that contains significant mechanisms for self-repair.” That article was published by a neurosurgeon and written directly for neurosurgeons.
“The Disc Itself Is Active Tissue...”
So what does that really mean to us? It tells us that the disc itself does have a God-given ability to heal and repair if provided the proper mechanisms for self-healing. There is a specific mechanism inherent in each of the spinal discs called the “pump mechanism of disc nutri-tion” (see Fig 1). When this mechanism is not working properly, the spinal discs will begin to die causing bulges, herniations, and eventually spinal stenosis.
The spinal disc is one of the very few tissues in the body that does not have a direct blood supply for circulation. The only way that the disc gets the circulation of water, oxygen and nutrients for self-repair is via this specific disc pump mechanism. What happens when you decrease cir-culation in any type of tissue, whether it be animal tissue, plant tissue or human tissue? Exactly, it begins to become weak and begins to degenerate.
Symptoms Are NOT The Problem
Now the symptoms of pain, numbness,
When it comes to drug stores... The Good Old Days are Back! Remember the ‘Good Old Days’ when your neighborhood pharmacist was your friend? Your pal, your ‘go-to’ guy? He, or she, would help you with your prescription needs as well as show you where the over-the-counter items were - and they always had a ready smile for you!

brown leaves are the plant’s problem? Of course not, the leaves turning brown is just a condition that is telling you that there is something wrong with the plant. The plant is unhealthy and needs water and nutrients. You could spray paint the leaves green but it just covers up the condition. The underlying problem still exists and will continue to produce brown leaves until you fix the actual problem. and tingling that most experience with bulging, herniated or degenerative discs are NOT the problem. The definition of a symptom: “something that indicates the existence of something else.” It is just like the dashboard of your car telling you that something is wrong (brake lights out, engine needs checked, overheating, etc.) Those lights that appear in your car dash are NOT the problem. You can remove the lights surgically or put a piece of duct tape over the lights but the problem will NOT be fixed...the problem is still present.
Let’s take a look at a plant for example...if the leaves on a plant begin to turn brown, would you say that the

He will sit down with you and go over your condition with you in complete detail. You will know exactly what is causing all your pain (or other symptoms).
In your spine, when the pump mechanism of disc nutrition fails, the disc will begin to de-generate and become weak. This weakness in the disc is what produces the bulging, herniated, and degenerative discs.
The treatment that is provided at Dr. Heilman’s Spine and Neuropathy Care Center in Escondido is revolutionary and is specifically designed to artificially re-create the pump mechanism in the discs which allows the spinal discs to heal and repair. The best part of the treatment is that it uses no drugs, no injections, and no surgery. Plus it’s painless and many patients relax and fall asleep while undergoing the treatment. The amount of treatment needed to allow the discs to heal and repair varies from person to person and can only be determined after a detailed neurological and orthopedic evaluation. We do NOT accept everyone for treatment and will let you know if we can accept your case for treatment.

‘A Child Waiting For You’ Cont. from Page 3
• Four regional offices to serve you (Linda Vista, Chula Vista, Escondido and Oceanside.) • Fully licensed agency with a complete array of adoption services for all members of the adoption triad (birthparents, adoptees, and adoptive parents), including: Child Welfare Services, birth parent services, independent adoptions, stepparent adoptions, post-adopt services, adoption assistance program, and guardianship. • Adoption preparation classes: TIPS and special interest classes including attachment parenting, discipline, culture diversity, adopt adoptee and more. • Legal support: at no cost to children who are dependents of the Juvenile court and legally freed for adoption. • Large volume: 300-400 adoptions per year (includes relative/kin/foster placements); many children needing placement (compared to private agencies). • Low fees: Our $500 adoption fee may be waived if taking a dependent child of the court. • Adoptions subsidy: Foster care payments, prior to parental rights’ being terminated; Adoption Assistance Program (AAP), which equals the amount they would receive in foster care and MediCal for children up to age 18, or 21 if disabled. What is an Independent Adoption and does San Diego County Adoptions do them?
Yes, San Diego County Adoptions does do independent adoptions. This is a more detailed process than stepparent adoptions. Once again, a case is initiated upon the agency's receipt of a stamped (‘conformed’) copy of a petition that has been filed at Juvenile Court. The fee for this type of adoption is $4500 or $1500 for families with a valid home study. There is a sliding scale for lower income families. In addition, an Adoption Services Provider (ASP) is required when the child is not related to the applicant(s), which generally is an additional fee of $800-$2,000. How long does Transition take?
The length of the Transition varies depending upon the age of the child and their history. It is a series of daily contact visits, following the First Meeting, which increase in length and gradually allow the child to feel more comfortable with the prospective parent(s). The transition requires flexibility and patience on the part of the prospective adoptive parent(s) to assure that the process is as comfortable as possible for the child. What is the Guardianship process and cost?
If the child in question is not a dependent of the Juvenile Court, the petitioner would need to go to Probate Court located at 1409 4th Ave., San Diego, in order to obtain a Guardianship Packet. Relatives will then be sent to Family Court for a home evaluation. The fee for this is $800 and a Family Court Facilitator will complete the investigation. Non-Relatives will stay with Probate Court and a Health and Human Services Agency Child Welfare Services social worker will do a home evaluation. The fee for non-relative guardianship is $708. The fee may be reduced based on the monthly family income and family size. What if I start the adoption process and change my mind? If you start the adoption process with San Diego County and then change your mind, you just let us know and we can put your Home Study on hold or close out the file. Part of the home study process is deciding if adoption is right for you and your family at this time.
How can I find an Adoption Office location near me? • Step-Parent and Independent Adoption Programs, 6950 Levant Street, San Diego, CA 92111 858-6945149 • North Inland, 463 N. Midway, Ste 200. Escondido, CA 92027. 760-480-3404 • North Coastal, 1320 Union Plaza Court, Oceanside, CA., 92054. 760-754-3456 • The County of San Diego Adoptions serves all members of the adoption triad: adoptees, birth families, and adoptive parents. Both voluntary relinquishments as well as adoptions of children from the foster care system are handled by the agency, which is staffed by professional social workers. A noobligation orientation is available by attending a free Orientation meeting. Ongoing professional education and training classes about adoption issues are another benefit offered by the agency.
• In 2013, the Exceptional Families Adoption Campaign was launched in order to recruit families to meet the needs of children in foster care, particularly those considered hard to place. At any given time, approximately 30 foster children are awaiting a permanent adoptive placement. These children range in age from infants to teenagers, come from diverse ethnic backgrounds, and belong to sibling groups who need to be placed together. Some children may have medical, physical or emotional needs that require special attention. In order to decrease the amount of time a child waits, a targeted recruitment campaign has been launched to seek Exceptional Families. • The agency also serves the community by providing
step parent, guardianship, independent, post-adopt, and Adoption Assistance Program (AAP) services. What is a voluntary relinquishment?
A Voluntary relinquishment occurs when a birthmother and/or birthfather voluntarily give up their parental rights and request an adoptive family for their child. San Diego County Adoptions has trained social workers to handle these cases. The case will be assigned to a Birth Parent Worker. These cases are time sensitive so they must be expedited.

the famed 94th Aero Squadron, informally known as the "Hatin-the-Ring" Squadron. In his first month in combat he shot down five enemy planes and was awarded the French Croix de Guerre for his victories. The next day he scored his sixth victory. He soon was commanding the squadron.
In 1931, Rickenbacker was belatedly awarded the Medal of Honor by President Herbert Hoover for his 26 aerial victories – the most by any American pilot during World War I. In 1927, Rickenbacker bought the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, which he operated for 15 years. In 1942, Rickenbacker closed the Speedway due to World War II, and sold it in 1945.
Rickenbacker was adamantly opposed to President Franklin Roosevelt's New Deal policies. The President ordered NBC Radio not to allow him to broadcast opinions critical of Roosevelt's policies. Rickenbacker had harshly denounced the President's taking existing mail contracts from civilian air carriers to have Army Air Corps pilots carry the air mail. In 1938, Rickenbacker bought Eastern Airlines from General Motors for $3.5 million.
During the 1930s, he helped develop new aircraft designs and bought the new fourengine Lockheed Constellation and Douglas DC-4 airliners. In 1941, Rickenbacker was a passenger on a DC-3 airliner that crashed near Atlanta. He suffered serious injuries, being soaked in fuel, immobile, and trapped in the wreckage.
But one of Rickenbacker's most famous near-death experiences occurred in 1942 on a tour of air bases in the Pacific. Off course, Rickenbacker’s B-17 ran out of fuel, forcing the crew to ditch in a remote part of the Pacific.
For 24 days, the crew drifted. Their food ran out after three days and once again, the nation’s news media reported Rickenbacker was dead. A U.S. Navy patrol float-plane finally rescued them. The mishap inspired Rickenbacker to help develop improved navigational instruments and better survival gear.
At age 83, Captain Rickenbacker suffered from pneumonia and died on July 23, 1973 in Zürich, Switzerland. Throughout his eventful life, Rickenbacker was responsible for hundreds of

"Hips for Sarge"
Sarge is a 5-6 year old male German Shepherd who was rescued from the Baldwin Animal Shelter in January.
Upon an exam including x-rays by our vet, we learned of a horrible dysplasia condition for both hips. After a week in foster care, being able to note how he gets around and particularly how he does going up and down steps, even small ones, it became clear he needs surgery. Taking medicine is not going to address the pain he has and the worsening conditions.
He is a sweet, appreciative dog and we don't want to put him down. He can have an excellent quality of life with this surgery which costs $2000 and essentially removes the femur heads on both hips. Its not the best, most complete surgery but it is surgery which substantially deals with the pain and flexibility issues. Would you consider brightening his future? If so, please make your check out to The Puppy Coalition Foundation, a tax exempt organization and receive tax credit for your contribution. (It'll feel good when you write this check for him.)

The Pastor Says . . .
sense of denial. We don’t like to think about dying, even though it is inevitable that we will. Sometimes, it is difficult enough just to stay alive, let alone prepare for death. Yet, preparation is essential. As a pastor, I am often asked how one gets ready. For one thing, we need to talk about it. Jesus did.
Pastor Richard Huls, Retired The Inevitable
With the advent of Ash Wednesday we have LENT, the beginning of a forty day period recognized by the majority of Christians as the journey of Jesus to his death on a cross in Jerusalem. In many ways, it was a preparation for his death. He knew he was going to die, not in the traditional way of living life out to old age, but rather through a conflict with the religious authorities of his day. As he made his way to his death, he told his followers about his feelings and how they were to prepare for his departure.
While we know that some day we will die, there is often a
While we don’t know how death will come, we can prepare for it by setting our house (life) in order, keeping things organized such as legal documents, military discharge papers, birth certificates, marriage licenses, trusts and wills, and updated insurance policies. Also, we should make sure that there are no unfinished social issues such as unresolved anger, resentments, regrets, etc. Too many have postponed what could have been done while living. And, of course, the spiritual equation, which is “Prepare to meet your God.” is a way to a peaceful death – even for the agnostic and atheist, with a simple surrender to being loved and being given grace and forgiveness. After all, it is better this way than leaving anything unfinished.

Desmond spoke of a surge of development in the city, including plans to build two apartment complexes in what the city calls the “Creek District” — a sort of downtown hub San Marcos has wanted to create for decades.
The city approved the master plan back in 2007, calling for a 214-acre shopping and housing district and 73-acre habitat preserve south of San Marcos Boulevard and around Bent Avenue, Grand Avenue and Discovery Street. The area is a flood plain, and the first steps toward someday building

Runner up entries also have a shot at becoming official selections of OIFF 2015, with the opportunity to be shown on big screen as part of “Oceanside Spotlight” screening spots. This contest is not limited only to Oceanside residents. Anyone can participate and there is no charge. If filmmakers have a film longer than 5 min and it’s not about Oceanside, they can still participate in OIFF under the regular submission process as detailed at www.osidefilm.org/submit- films. Participants will find it cost-advantageous to submit their film early, with the early deadline being March 16, 2015 and the final deadline June 15, 2015.
bridges and shoring up San Marcos Creek have just begun.
Last year the city bought the former Lowe’s building off state Route 78 and will rent it to two stores: Winco and Hobby Lobby, both of which are set to open later this year. It will also own — and collect rent on — the building that will house a to-be-built DMV office.
The luncheon, celebrating the annual State of the City address, drew roughly 300 people and was co-sponsored by the San Marcos Chamber of Commerce. During the event Paul Van Middlesworth was installed as the new Chamber of Commerce Chairman for the Board of Directors.

The Paper • Page 12 • March 05, 2015 the speed and capacities of PCs every two years. Professional and gaming software companies hungrily lapped up these advances making their applications smarter and faster. Designers, gamers and some businesses continue to benefit from advancing technology but for 80% of today’s users, not so much. Paul & Nome Van Middlesworth, The Computer Factory
How can I find the right PC for me? Part II
Twenty years ago, the conventional wisdom was to buy all the speed, memory and storage capacity you could afford when you bought a new PC. Today for most of us, that would be utter foolishness. In earlier days the technological lifespan of an “average” PC was two years. A “high end” PC that cost twice as much would have twice the speed and capacity and could survive obsolescence for up to four years, a reasonable option. Today everything has changed. We are now on the “PC Internet Plateau” (Don’t bother trying to look it up, we coined the term) for years the PC industry has marched forward doubling
The World of...
Patrick "Skip" Jacovino Integrity Mortgage Group Senior Mortgage Consultant
Reverse Mortgages... Are they right for your family?
For the vast majority of users, the need for speed and storage capacity has reached a “plateau” because our activities like shopping, communicating, banking etc are done on the Internet. The Internet is a place where computer speed and power doesn’t count. A six hundred dollar PC and a three thousand dollar PC each send E-mails and surf the WWW at the same speed. Even off-line applications like word processing, spreadsheets, accounting, watching movies, playing music and making greeting cards get no tangible benefit from faster CPUs and massive hard drives. PC technology has advanced past the needs of the great majority of users.
the 20% of “power users” who actually need the high end hardware for “stand alone” applications like video and audio editing, animation and solids modeling will still need to upgrade every three or four years just to stay competitive in their respective applications. So if you are one of the 80% who use their PCs primarily for Internet applications and “low task” stand alone applications like word processing, photo editing etc, there are some things to consider when you shop for a new PC. NUMBER ONE: Avoid buying a new PC with any version (8/8.1) OS (operating system). Your new PC should have Windows 7/64 Home or Pro. Windows 8X is a dead end OS that has been Microsoft’s biggest disaster to date. Win
8X’s market share has remained stagnant at under 14% while Win 7 continues to grow past 56%. The Win 8X orphan OS will disappear from retail shelves later this year replaced by Windows 10. Windows 10 will be offered as a free up-grade for all PCs with either Win 7 or Win 8. Because Win 10 returns to the popular Win 7 desktop nearly all Win 8X users will choose the upgrade. Win 7 users won’t need to bother. Microsoft desperately wants users to buy Win 8 so they make it difficult to find Win 7 notebook and desktop PCs in retail stores. Win 7 PCs are readily available on the Internet and from independent builders like The Computer Factory. Next week we’ll continue this series on how to get the right PC for your specific business or home needs.
The great majority of Win 7 PCs made in the last half dozen years are fully capable of meeting the needs of most users through at least 2020. That’s terrible news to PC makers but great news for most users. The irony is that
funds from a reverse mortgage.
First, the client can elect to receive a “lump sum” payment. This means that they get a check from the bank sent to them for the entire amount of the proceeds. If the client has an existing mortgage, the reverse mortgage pays off the old loan first and then the client has access to the equity funds that are left over. In many cases this is a large amount of money. Sometimes it is more money than the client needs at the time. Let’s say a client has $200,000 of available equity…They may not want all that money at once. In this case, the client can elect to take a smaller lump sum payment (say $50,000) and then have the remaining equity distributed in either one of two other ways. The remaining equity can be stored in a “Line of Credit” to be used whenever the client wants access to those funds. This is a great way to have cash at hand when needed, but not have to pay interest on the funds until they are actually used. And the client never makes a payment on the reverse line. The credit line is also guaranteed never to shrink (as regular lines of credit can). The reverse mortgage line of credit option is good for someone who may not need access to all their available funds now, but might have plans in the future for those funds such as a vacation or travel. It is also a great source of emergency cash when life’s little (expensive) surprises pop up.
In our last column, we discussed the basics of a reverse mortgage and how it works. This week’s column will focus on how funds can be accessed on a reverse mortgage. We already know that a reverse mortgage allows seniors over 62 to access their equity in the form of cash…but how this is done is often a mystery to people. The last option to access funds is There are three main ways to access called a monthly tenure payment.
This is a monthly payment that the lender makes to the client every month for as long as they live in their home. Once the size of the monthly payment has been determined, the client can be assured that it will never go down…regardless of what happens to property values. So in the example earlier, the client could take an initial lump sum payment and then have the remaining equity to be paid to them every month in equal installments for life. This is a great option for someone who may want to enhance their monthly cash-flow or income. Many people wonder how a reverse mortgage can work if the client never has to make a payment… Where does the interest go? The answer to this is very simple. Any interest that accrues
each month is added to the balance of the mortgage. However, property values typically keep pace with the rising balance of the reverse mortgage as it grows. This means that in many cases, the client retains a good portion of the equity in their home.
In our next column, we will look at the most frequently asked questions about reverse mortgages. However, if you have any questions about this column…or if you would like more information on the fantastic interest rates for regular conventional mortgages (30, 15, 10 year fixed rates…5, 7, 10 year adjustable rate mortgages)…please contact me for a noobligation/no cost rate quote. As always, I am available to speak at gatherings or groups at absolutely no charge.
