Editor’s Note: This is one of a series of journal entries dictated by James P. Beckwourth, an adventurer, explorer, scout, hunter, trapper, pioneer, emigrant and, for a time, Indian Chief of the Crows.

The narrative is almost amusing in that hardy pioneers did not really talk in such elegant terms. Clearly, T. D. Bonner, who writes this biography, has exercised considerable ‘poetic license’ in describing the adventures in such elegant prose.

Here, then, more in the continuing saga describing the trek out West by James P. Beckwourth: Removal of our Rendezvous.—Battle with our Friends, the Black Feet. —A Race for dear Life.— Great Victory over the Grovan Band of Black Feet.

AFTER we had rested we departed for Snake River, making the Black Foot buttes on our way, in order to pass through the buffalo region. I received a severe lecture from Mr. Sublet for my rashness while at the trading post. The second day of our march, one of our men, while fishing, detected a party of Black Feet in the act of stealing our horses in the open day. But for the man, they would have succeeded in making off with a great number. The alarm was given, and we mounted and gave immediate chase. The Indians were forty-four in number, and on foot; therefore they became an easy prey. We ran them into a thicket of dry bush, which we surrounded, and then fired in several places. It was quite dry, and, there being a good breeze at the time, it burned like chaff. This driving the Indians out, as fast as they made their appearance we shot them with our rifles. Every one of them was killed; those who escaped our bullets were consumed in the fire; and as they were all more or less roasted, we took no scalps. None of our party were hurt, except one, who was wounded by one of our men.

On the third day we found buffalo, and killed great numbers of them by a "surround." At this place we lost six horses, three of them belonging to myself, two to a Swiss, and one to Baptiste.

Indians, I and the Swiss started along the back track in pursuit, with the understanding that we would rejoin our company at the Buttes. We followed them to the last place of rendezvous; their tracks were fresh and plain, but we could gain no sight of our horses. We then gave up the chase, and encamped in a thicket. In the morning we started to return, and had not proceeded far, when, hearing a noise in our rear, I looked round, and saw between two and three hundred Indians within a few hundred yards of us. They soon discovered us, and, from their not making immediate pursuit, I inferred that they mistook us for two of their own party. However, they soon gave chase. They being also on foot, I said to my companion, "Now we have as good a chance of escaping as they have of overtaking us." The Swiss (named Alexander) said, "It is of no use for me to try to get away: I can not run; save yourself, and never mind me."

"No," I replied, "I will not leave you; run as fast as you can until you reach the creek; there you can hide, for they will pursue me."

He followed my advice, and saved himself. I crossed the stream, and when I again appeared in sight of the Indians I was on the summit of a small hill two miles in advance. Giving a general yell, they came in pursuit of me. On I ran, not daring to indulge the hope that they would give up the chase, for some of the Indians are great runners, and would rather die than incur the ridicule of their brethren. On, on we tore; I to save my scalp, and my pursuers to win it. At length I reached the Buttes, where I had expected to find the camp, but, to my inconceivable horror and dismay, my comrades were not there. They had found no water on their route, and had proceeded to the river, forty-five miles distant.

My feelings at this disappointment transcended expression. I though of home, friends, and my loved one all in one lightning-flash. The Indians were close at my heels; their bullets were whizzing past me; their yells sounded painfully in my ears; and I could almost feel the knife making a circuit round my skull. I ran on, however, following the road which our whole company had made. I was scorching with thirst, having

tasted neither sup nor bit since we commenced the race. Still on I went with the speed of an antelope. I kept safely in advance of the range of their bullets, when suddenly the glorious sight of the camp-smoke caught my eye. My companions perceived me at a mile from the camp, as well as my pursuers; and, mounting their horses to meet me, soon turned the tables on my pursuers. It was now the Indians' turn to be chased. They must have suffered as badly with thirst as I did, and our men cut them off from the river. Night had begun to close in, under the protection of which the Indians escaped; our men returned with only five scalps. My heels thus deprived the rascally Indians of their anticipated pleasure of dancing over my scalp. My limbs were so much swollen the next morning, that for two or three days ensuing it was with great difficulty I got about. My whole system was also in great pain. In a few days, however, I was as well as ever, and ready to repay the Indians for their trouble. The third day after my escape, my companion Aleck found his

way into camp. He entered the lodge with dejection on his features.

"Oh!" he exclaimed, "I thank God for my escape, but the Indians have killed poor Jim. I saw his bones a few miles back. I will give any thing I have if a party will go with me and bury him. The wolves have almost picked his bones, but it must be he. Poor, poor Jim! gone at last!"

"Ha!" said some one present, "is Jim killed, then ? Poor fellow ! Well, Aleck, let us go back and give him a Christian burial." He had seen a body nearly devoured on the way, most likely that of the wounded Indian who had chased me in his retreat from our camp.

I came limping into the crowd at this moment, and addressed him before he had perceived me: "Halloo, Aleck, are you safe?"

He looked at me for a moment in astonishment, and then embraced me so tight that I thought he would suffocate me. He burst into a flood of tears, which for a time prevented his speaking. He looked at me again

and again, as if in doubt of my identity.

At length he said, "Oh, Jim, you are safe! And how did you escape? I made sure that you were killed, and that the body I saw on the road was yours. Pshaw! I stopped and shed tears on a confounded dead Indian's carcass!"

Aleck stated that the enemy had passed within ten feet without perceiving him; that his gun was cocked and well primed, so that if he had been discovered there would have been at least one red skin less to chase me. He had seen no Indians on his way to camp. I was satisfied that some (if not all) of my pursuers knew me, for they were Black Feet, or they would not have taken such extraordinary pains to run me down. If they had succeeded in their endeavor, they would, in subsequent years, have saved their tribe many scalps.

From here we moved on to Lewis's Fork, on the Columbia River, where we made a final halt to prepare for the fall trapping season. Some small parties, getting tired of inaction, would occasionally sally out to the small mountain streams, all of which contained plenty of beaver, and would frequently

I prepared my traps one day, thinking to go out alone, and see what my luck might be. I mounted my horse, and, on approaching a small stream, dismounted to take a careful survey, to see if there were any signs of beaver. Carefully ascending the bank of the stream, I peered over, and saw, not a beaver, but an Indian. He had his robe spread on the grass, and was engaged in freeing himself from vermin, with which all Indians abound. He had not seen nor heard me; his face was toward me, but inclined, and he was intently pursuing his occupation. "Here," thought I, "are a gun, a bow, a quiver full of arrows, a good robe, and a scalp."

I fired my rifle; the Indian fell over without uttering a sound. I not only took his scalp, but his head. I tied two locks of his long hair together, hung his head on the horn of my saddle, and, taking the spoils of the enemy, hurried back to camp. The next morning our camp was invested by two thousand five hundred warriors of the Black Foot tribe. We had now something on our hands which demanded attention. We were encamped in the bend of a river — in the "horse-shoe." Our lodges were pitched at the entrance, or narrowest part of the shoe, while our animals were driven back into the bend. The

lodges, four deep, extended nearly across the land, forming a kind of barricade in front; not a very safe one for the inmates, since, being covered with buffalo hides, they were penetrable to bullet and arrow.

The Indians made a furious charge. We immediately placed the women and children in the rear, sending them down the bend, where they were safe unless we were defeated. We suffered the Indians for a long time to act on the offensive, being content with defending ourselves and the camp. I advised Captain Sublet to let them weary themselves with charging, by which time we would mount and charge them with greater prospect of victory; whereas, should we tire ourselves while they were fresh, we should be overwhelmed by their numbers, and, if not defeated, inevitably lose a great many men. All the mountaineers approved of my advice, and our plans were taken accordingly. They drove us from our first position twice, so that our lodges were between the contending ranks, but they never broke our lines. When they approached us very near we resorted to our arrows, which all our half-breeds used as skillfully as the Indians. Finally, perceiving they began to tire, I went and ordered the women to saddle the horses in haste. A horse was soon ready for each man, four hundred in number.

Taking one hundred and thirty men, I passed out through the timber, keeping near the river until we could all emerge and form a line to charge them, unobserved, in the rear. While executing this diversion, the main body was to charge them in front. While defiling through the timber we came suddenly upon ten Indians who were resting from the fight, and were sitting on the ground unconcernedly smoking their pipes. We killed nine of them, the tenth one making good his retreat. Our manœuvre succeeded admirably. The Indians were unconscious of our approach in their rear until they began to fall from their horses. Then charging on their main body simultaneously with Captain Sublet's charge in front, their whole force was thrown into irretrievable confusion, and they fled without farther resistance. We did not pursue them, feeling very well satisfied to have got rid of them as we had. They left one hundred and sixty-seven dead on the field. Our loss was also very severe; sixteen killed, mostly half breeds, and fifty or sixty wounded. In this action I received a wound in my left side, although I did not perceive it until the battle was over.

would dance themselves to death. They had a crying spell after ward for the dead. After all, it was a victory rather dearly purchased.

A few days after our battle, one of our old trappers, named Le Blueux, who had spent twenty years in the mountains, came to me, and telling me he knew of a small stream full of beaver which ran into Lewis's Fork, about thirty miles from camp, wished me to accompany him there. We being free trappers at that time, the chance of obtaining a pack or two of beaver was rather a powerful incentive. Gain being my object, I readily acceded to his proposal. We put out from camp during the night, and traveled up Lewis's Fork, leisurely discussing our prospects and confidently enumerating our unhatched chickens, when suddenly a large party of Indians came in sight in our rear. The banks of the river we were traveling along were precipitous and rocky, and skirted with a thick bush. We entered the bush without a moment's hesitation, for the Indians advanced on us as soon as they had caught sight of us. Le Blueux had a small bell attached to his horse's neck, which he took off, and, creeping to a large bush, fastened it with the end of his lariat, and

returned holding the other end in his hand. This stratagem caused the Indians to expend a great amount of powder and shot in their effort to kill the bell; for, of course, they supposed the bell indicated the position of ourselves. When they approached near enough to be seen through the bushes, we fired one gun at a time, always keeping the other loaded. When we fired the bell would ring, as if the horse was started by the close proximity of the gun, but the smoke would not rise in the right place. They continued to shoot at random into the bushes without injuring us or our faithful animals, who were close by us, but entirely concealed from the sight of the Indians. My companion filled his pipe and commenced smoking with as much sang froid as if he had been in camp. "This is the last smoke I expect to have between here and camp," said he.

"What are we to do?" I inquired, not feeling our position very secure in a brush fort manned with a company of two, and beleaguered by scores of Black Foot warriors.

In an instant, before I had time to think, crack went his rifle, and down came an Indian, who, more bold than the rest, had approached too near to our garrison. "Now," said Le Blueux, "bind your leggins and moccasins around your head."

Wondering what bold project he was about to execute, I quietly obeyed him. He went noiselessly to the edge of the bluff, looked narrowly up and down the river, and then commenced to slide down the almost perpendicular bank, I closely following him. We safely reached the river, into which we dropped our selves. We swam close under the bank for more than a mile, until they discovered us. "Now," said my comrade, "strike across the stream in double quick time."

We soon reached the opposite bank, and found ourselves a good mile and a half ahead of the Indians. They commenced plunging into the river in pursuit, but they were too late. We ran across the open ground until we reached a mountain, where we could safely look back and laugh at our pursuers. We had lost our horses and guns, while they had sacrificed six or eight of their warriors, besides missing the two scalps they made so certain of getting hold of.

On Saturday, May 2nd, the Escondido Police Department conducted a DUI Sobriety / Driver’s License Checkpoint in the area of Valley Pkwy / Juniper St.

Drivers whose ONLY offense was being UNLICENSED to drive were given the opportunity to locate the registered owner of the vehicle to either take or assign possession of the vehicle to a licensed driver. 26 vehicles were released to the owner or a designated driver. During the checkpoint, 11 vehicles were impounded.

Following are other results from this event: 653 vehicles drove through the checkpoint. 1,016 vehicles were screened in primary. 4 FST’s were conducted, resulting in 2 DUI arrests. 1 subject was arrested for resisting/delaying a peace officer. 77 vehicles were sent to secondary screening (drivers who could not produce a driver’s license or who were suspected of being under the influence of alcohol or drugs) 45 total citations were issued

We were both impressed at how highly organized this event was - plenty of Kiwanian workers, each doing their part, selling tickets, manning cashier’s cages, soliciting prizes and gifts for silent auctions, arranging graphics, setting up all the display tables . . . . . long, long days but these wonderful Kiwanians pulled it off just like an assembly line. Everyone knew their jobs . . . and did them.

But what really impressed us both was how beautiful Fresno is. One doesn’t normally associate the words ‘beautiful’ and ‘Fresno’ in the same sentence. Unless you’ve been there.

Beautiful homes on shade tree line streets, well manicured lawns, a downtown area that is clean, well designed and an example of what a downtown should look like. 46 years ago I worked for radio station KMAK, then a country station.

Audette’s sentencing was scheduled for April 6 at 1:30 p.m. in San Diego Superior Court, Department 25.

On September 2, 2013, Audette contacted Progressive Casualty Insurance Company and reported her car was stolen, claiming someone took her keys. The insurer settled the claim for $8,981 to cover the damages to Audette’s vehicle.

After reporting the alleged theft to her insurance company, Audette called San Diego Police to report the stolen car, but the police informed her that they had a report from a witness that her car was involved in a hit and run. Audette’s 2013 Hyundai was impounded as evidence. While investigating the case, San Diego police uncovered possible evidence of fraud and referred the case to the California Department of

Insurance for investigation. In the subsequent investigation, detectives found evidence that Audette was allegedly driving when she hit the parked cars, fled the scene, and then reported her car stolen. A jury convicted Audette of multiple felony counts of insurance fraud and leaving the scene of a collision. She faces up to two years in jail. Audette was on probation (until December 2017) for two previous DUI convictions at the time of the collision that led to the insurance fraud arrest.

AB 68 Ensures Access to Epilepsy Treatment

Throughout history, epilepsy was known as a mysterious and untreatable medical condition. Fortunately, modern drugs can effectively manage the disease so that people who suffer from epilepsy often lead relatively symptom-free lives.

Failure to adequately treat epilepsy can lead to serious complications, injuries, hospitalization and excessive medical costs, often financed with taxpayer dollars. Maintaining seizure control requires careful evaluation and monitoring by patients and physicians, as well as the administration of anti-epilepsy drugs tailored to each patient’s individual needs. As more people move onto Medi-Cal managed care plans, we are essentially growing a two-tier system of healthcare. Patients who can afford private insurance plans have doctors with the time and resources that allow them to obtain a higher tier of

of the Global War on Terror. In his 20-year career as a Navy Seal, he made nine major deployments on five continents, half of which were combat tours. Twice awarded the Bronze Star with “V” for valor and combat leadership, Ed commanded literally hundreds of direct combat missions and low visibility operations in Iraq, Afghanistan, Southeast Asia, and Central America. He is now a coach and consultant specializing in leadership, team building, mental toughness, resiliency, and personal conflict resolution, and has recently published a book. The meeting will be from 5:30-7:30pm at The Crossings, 5800 The Crossings Dr., Carlsbad. There is a $20/cash cover charge (includes appetizers). Drinks are available for purchase. For more info, contact Melanie Burkholder at 307.690.7814 or hhpcbad@gmail.com. Check them out on Facebook as Happy Hour Politics, or follow them on Twitter @hhpcbad. RSVP by May 13th. HHP is a satellite club of Carlsbad Republian Women Federated (CRWF).

drugs for their patients. Patients on Medi-Cal often don't have the same opportunities.

That’s why I introduced Assembly Bill 68 (AB 68). The bill strengthens the doctor/patient relationship by legislating a 48 hour expedited appeals process if the prescribed epilepsy drug was originally denied under the Medi-Cal program. AB 68 has now passed the Assembly Health Committee and hearings in the Appropriations Committee are pending. To register support for AB 68, please fax your comments to Appropriations Committee Chair Jimmy Gomez at 916-319-2151 and Vice Chair Frank Bigelow at (916) 319-2105. You may also fax your comments to my office at 760-480-7516.

Once enacted, AB 68 will result in better medical treatment for epilepsy patients in California and, in the long run, lower Medi-Cal costs for the state’s hard-pressed taxpayers.

lyle’s Laryngeal Law: Anytime a woman suffers in silence, she’ll have plenty to say about it later.

America’s First Spy Network

Tallmadge persuaded Connecticut Gov. Jonathan Trumbull to release Woodhull, who soon agreed to join the spy ring. To protect his cover, Woodhull swore allegiance to the British crown and began making trips to Manhattan, gathering intelligence and sending his “Samuel Culper” letters to Washington.

by Tom Morrow

Note: The current AMC cable TV series, “Turn: Washington’s Spies,” is based on the Revolutionary War exploits of Abraham Woodhull and the Culper Spy Ring.

Abraham Woodhull, a Long Island farmer from Setauket, was the leading civilian member of the so-called “American Culper Spy Ring,” created by George Washington during the American Revolution.

The ring was headed up by Continental Army Maj. Benjamin Tallmadge. Woodhull, one of the ring’s first recruits, used the alias "Samuel Culper," taken from Culpeper County,

From 1778, through the end of the War, the British were headquartered in and operating out of New York City. Because of heavy taxes levied by the British, a great deal of smuggling by privateers (pirates) was conducted by the colonists. Woodhull was arrested for smuggling across Long Island Sound to Connecticut, which gave Major Tallmadge the opportunity to recruit his neighbor as a civilian spy.

Major Tallmadge developed a code to communicate with members of the ring that most members of the British forces would be unable to decode. This code was a series of letters and numbers that could make an ordinary message look like gibberish. In some of his letters, Woodhull used a type of invisible ink invented by Sir James Jay, brother of John Jay. To be read, the letter containing the

Poolside CPR course offered in San Marcos

The City’s fire and community services departments have joined forces to offer a Poolside CPR program in San Marcos to equip residents with hands-only CPR skills. Twelve trainings beginning June 21 and ending August 16 will be held over the summer at two aquatics facilities—Las Posas Pool and Woodland Park Pool.

Lifeguards and firefighters will demonstrate and guide practice sessions of the technique to pool visitors throughout the swim sea-

son. Since trained professionals are rarely the first at an incident scene, the Poolside CPR program empowers pool patrons to take action to save a life if needed.

Because drowning is still a leading cause of accidental death in many age groups, the ultimate benefit of the CPR training will be safer San Marcos residents in, on and around the water, as well as safer responses in the event of any emergency, poolside or elsewhere.

New Skate Parks Designs

The City Council recently approved a contract with Grindline Skateparks for the design and construction of Vista’s two new skate parks. The parks will accommodate “all wheels” (skateboards, inline skates, bicycles, razors, and roller skates) for various skill levels. The sites are both located on N. Santa Fe Avenue. In mid-April, the City held the first of three public meetings to gather input from the public on the design of the new skate parks. About 90 participants provided comments on features such as, shade structures, restrooms, drinking fountains, and limited onsite parking spaces in order to maximize the park sizes.

Mayor Sam Abed has decided to not communicate to his Escondido Constituents via The Paper and its “A Letter from the Mayor” series

storage of family records and photos. His widow Erika, not being able to access this info, shipped them on April 20 to a family friend in McKinney, TX, so he could try to retrieve the data for her. Somewhere between her local UPS Store in Moreno Valley and the friend’s home in McKinney, the parcel contents (an Apple MacBook Air laptop, iPhone and backup hard drive) were swapped, whether by theft or by accident, for someone else’s two security lights.

The video surveillance camera at the UPS Store shows her bringing the devices into the store for packing, sealing and shipping, and according to UPS, somewhere in Texas, prior to delivery, the weight of the parcel changed. However, UPS will not disclose where, and simply wants to pay a claim rather than find the missing items. Aside from the countless memories and family records stored on the devices, there is business data and programming for numerous clients whose websites and business systems are at risk. To his family, these items are precious and priceless. It’s almost as if they have lost him twice.

Information that could be of help, or any ideas on how to proceed to rectify the situation, please contact Michael’s mother, Pam Reilly, at Pam@SanDiegoHomeBrokers. com. A reward has been offered for the return of the devices, no questions asked, to 11835 Carmel Mountain Rd, Suite 1304-406, San Diego, CA 92128.

‘Trials and Tribulations’ Cont. from Page 3

Man, possessed his own superior art and cunning. He could be surrounded with no difficulties for which his inexhaustible brain could not devise some secure mode of escape. We arrived safe at camp before the first guard was relieved. The following morning we received a severe reprimand from Captain Sublet for exposing ourselves on so hazardous an adventure.

As soon as the wounded were sufficiently recovered to be able to travel, we moved down the river to the junction of Salt River with Guy's Fork, about a mile from Snake River. The next day the captain resolved to pass up to Guy's Fork to a convenient camping-ground, where we were to spend the interval until it was time to separate into small parties, and commence trapping in good earnest for the season. One day, while moving leisurely along, two men and myself proposed to the captain to proceed ahead of the main party to ascertain the best road, to reconnoitre the various streams — in short, to make it a trip of discovery. We were to encamp one night, and rejoin the main body the next morning. The captain consented, but gave us strict caution to take good care of ourselves.

Nothing of importance occurred that day; but the next morning, about sunrise, we were all thunderstruck at being roused from our sleep by the discharge of guns close at hand. Two of us rose in an instant, and gave the war-hoop as a challenge for them to come on. Poor Cotton, the third of our party, was killed at the first fire. When they saw us arise, rifle in hand, they drew back; whereas, had they rushed on with their battle-axes, they could have killed us in an instant. One of our horses was also killed, which, with the body of our dead comrade, we used for a breastwork, throwing up, at the same time, all the dirt we could to protect ourselves as far as we were able. The Indians, five hundred in number, showered their balls at us, but, being careful to keep at a safe distance, they did us no damage for some time. At length my companion received a shot through the heel, while carelessly throwing up his feet in crawling to get a sight at the Indians without exposing his body. I received some slight scratches, but no injury that occasioned me any real inconvenience.

Providence at last came to our relief. Our camp was moving along slowly, shooting buffalo occasionally, when some of the women, hearing our guns, ran to the captain, exclaiming, "There is a fight. Hark! hear the guns!"

He, concluding that there was more distant fighting than is common in killing buffalo, dispatched sixty men in all possible

haste in the direction of the reports. We saw them as they appeared in sight on the brow of a hill not far distant, and sent up a shout of triumph. The Indians also caught sight of them, and immediately retreated, leaving seventeen warriors dead in front of our little fort, whom we relieved of their scalps.

We returned to camp after burying our companion, whose body was literally riddled with bullets. The next day we made a very successful surround of buffalo, killing great numbers of them. In the evening, several of our friends, the Snakes, came to us and told us their village was only five miles farther up, wishing us to move up near them to open a trade. After curing our meat, we moved on and encamped near the friendly Snakes. We learned that there were one hundred and eightyfive lodges of Pun-naks encamped only two miles distant, a discarded band of the Snakes, very bad Indians, and very great thieves. Captain Sublet informed the Snakes that if the Pun-naks should steal any of his horses or any thing belonging to his camp, he would rub them all out, and he wished the friendly Snakes to tell them so.

Two of our men and one of the Snakes having strolled down to the Pun-nak lodges one evening, they were set upon, and the Snake was killed, and the two of our camp came home wounded. The morning volunteers were called to punish the Pun-naks for their outrage. Two hundred and fifteen immediately presented themselves at the call, and our captain appointed Bridger leader of the troop. We started to inflict vengeance, but when we arrived at the site of the village, behold! there was no village there. They had packed up and left immediately after the perpetration of the outrage, they fearing, no doubt, that ample vengeance would be taken upon them. We followed their trail forty-five miles, and came up with them on Green River. Seeing our approach, they all made across to a small island in the river.

"What shall we do now, Jim?" inquired our leader. "I will cross to the other side with one half the men," I suggested, "and get abreast of the island. Their retreat will be thus cut off, and we can exterminate them in their trap." "Go," said he; "I will take them if they attempt to make this shore."

I was soon in position, and the enfilading commenced, and was continued until there was not one left of either sex or any age. We carried back four hundred and eighty-eight scalps, and, as we then supposed, annihilated the Pun-nak band. On our return, however, we found six or eight of their squaws, who had

been left behind in the flight, whom we carried back and gave to the Snakes. On informing the Snakes of what had taken place, they expressed great delight. "Right!" they said "Pun-naks very bad Indians;" and they joined in the scalp-dance.

We afterward learned that the Pun-naks, when they fled from our vengeance, had previously sent their old men, and a great proportion of their women and children, to the mountains, at which we were greatly pleased, as it spared the effusion of much unnecessary blood. They had a great "medicine chief" slain with the others on the island; his medicine was not good this time, at least. We proceeded thence to a small creek, called Black Foot Creek, in the heart of the Black Foot country.

It was always our custom, before turning out our horses in the morning, to send out spies to reconnoitre around, and see if any Indians were lurking about to steal them. When preparing to move one morning from the last-named creek, we sent out two men; but they had not proceeded twenty yards from our corral before a dozen shots were fired at them by a party of Black Feet, bringing them from their horses severely wounded. In a moment the whole camp was in motion. The savages made a bold and desperate attempt to rush upon the wounded men and get their scalps, but we were on the ground in time to prevent them, and drove them back, killing four of their number.

The next day we were overtaken by the Snakes, who, hearing of our skirmish, expressed great regret that they were not present to have followed them and given them battle again. We seldom followed the Indians after having defeated them, unless they had stolen our horses. It was our policy always to act on the defensive, even to tribes that were known enemies. When the Snakes were ready, we all moved on together for the head of Green River. The Indians numbered six or seven thousand, including women and children; our number was nearly eight hundred altogether, forming quite a formidable little army, or, more properly, a moving city. The number of horses belonging to the whole camp was immense. We had no farther difficulty in reaching Green River, where we remained six days. During this short stay our numberless horses exhausted the grass in our vicinity, and it was imperative to change position.

It was now early in September, and it was time to break up our general encampment, and spread in all directions, as the hunting and trapping season was upon us. Before we formed

our dispersing parties, a number of the Crows came to our camp, and were rejoiced to see us again. The Snakes and Crows were extremely amicable.

The Crows were questioning the Snakes about some scalps hanging on our lodge-poles. They gave them the particulars of our encounter with the Black Feet, how valiantly we had fought them, and how we had defeated them. The Crows were highly gratified to see so many scalps taken from their old and inveterate foes. They wished to see the braves who had fought so nobly. I was pointed out as the one who had taken the greatest number of scalps; they told them they had seen me fight, and that I was a very great brave. Upon this I became the object of the Crows' admiration; they were very anxious to talk to me and to cultivate my acquaintance; but I could speak very little of their language. One of our men (named Greenwood), whose wife was a Crow, could speak their language fluently; he and his wife were generally resorted to by the Crows to afford full details of our recent victory. Greenwood, becoming tired of so much questioning, invented a fiction, which greatly amused me for its ingenuity. He informed them that White-handled Knife (as the Snakes called me) was a Crow. They all started in astonishment at this information, and asked how that could be.

Said Greenwood in reply, "You know that so many winters ago the Cheyennes defeated the Crows, killing many hundreds of their warriors, and carrying off a great many of their women and children." "Yes, we know it," they all exclaimed.

"Well, he was a little boy at that time, and the whites bought him of the Cheyennes, with whom he has staid ever since. He has become a great brave among them, and all your enemies fear him."

On hearing this astonishing revelation, they said that I must be given to them. Placing implicit faith in every word that they had heard, they hastened to their village to disseminate the joyful news that they had found one of their own people who had been taken by the Shi-ans when a bar-car-ta (child), who had been sold to the whites, and who had now become a great white chief, with his lodge-pole full of the scalps of the Black Feet, who had fallen beneath his gun and battle axe. This excited a great commotion throughout their whole village. All the old women who remembered the defeat, when the Crows lost two thousand warriors and a host of

How to avoid spending money at The Computer Factory- part IV (conclusion)

This series of columns has been aimed at helping our business and home readers avoid preventable computer problems. We conclude this series with a conversation on software programs designed to protect your PC. Malware consists of viruses, rootkits, adware, bots, ransomware, worms and more, delivered to your PC via the internet and USB devices. Our defenses are anti-malware programs, spam and pop-up blockers, firewalls and common sense. You can spend hours studying the methods of infection and purposes of the various genre of malware but it all comes down to this. What’s the

The World of...

MORTGAGE FINANCING

with...

Patrick "Skip" Jacovino Integrity Mortgage Group Senior Mortgage Consultant

Last week we looked into some commonly used mortgage terms and their definitions. This week, we will look at some DO’S and DON’TS that anyone considering taking out a mortgage should be aware of … whether you are considering a conventional refinance loan, a purchase loan to buy a home, or a reverse mortgage for seniors, there are some common things that every client should know to get the best deal and avoid being taken advantage of.

Do not rely on either Microsoft Security Essentials or Windows Defender. Both of these free, often pre-installed defensive software packages have fallen to the bottom of the “effectiveness list.” The free versions of Avast and Avira top that list today. The free versions are as effective as the paid versions for most users. Paid versions have features mainly used by professionals. For “paid” versions we like Kaspersky, Panda and NOD 32. We don’t like Norton or McAffee. In addition to the Anti-virus package, you’ll want the free version of “Malwarebytes.” You don’t need to buy a third party firewall. The combination of your router acting as a “hardware” firewall and the software firewall in your MS Windows OS are protection enough for most users.

Some “malware” infections are obvious. Your PC locks up, slows down, opens up unfamiliar home pages, denies Internet access, constantly flashes banners and pop-ups, won’t open files, won’t allow updates, won’t run malware software. When that happens, try to run your defensive software from “safe mode.” If that doesn’t work, you have a problem. The longer your PC runs with infections, the more likely you are to wind up with corrupt Windows and/or lost data. You need to act. Internet

DO: Ask your friends and family if they have worked with a mortgage lender in the past and were happy with the experience. DON’T: Trust everything you see in advertisements. This goes for mailers, ads in newspapers, radio, and especially the Internet. As hard as it is to believe, advertising is not always very well regulated and there are many companies that will advertise rates that simply are not available … or they will advertise “fixed” rates but not state how long the rate is “fixed.” DO: Ask for terms in writing. If a lender tells you, “Oh, I can get you such and such rate on a 30 year fixed rate loan”…ask that lender if you can lock that rate in today and get a confirmation in writing that they actually locked the rate in. Many lenders will tell a client that the rate is locked in when actually, the rate might not be. Lenders do this because they longer they wait to lock your rate in during the process, the better the pricing. However, this practice also puts the client at risk if the rates in the market get worse. ALWAYS ask the lender if you are “floating” (Not locked in) or Locked…and get it in writing. Also ask how long the rate is locked for. DON’T: Pay for anything up front. A good lender will NOT charge you up front for any of the following: Taking the application for a loan; Running a credit report; The rate lock; Any commitment fees; Appraisal Fee. You should only pay an appraisal fee (if applicable) once the lender can prove that they have locked in your interest rate and show you that they have a loan approval pending the appraisal. DO: Ask for a Good Faith

help sites are rarely helpful and usually scams. Subscription and mobile on-site services like “Geek Squad” are expensive and questionably effective (see comments on WWW). Malware removal and OS reinstallation should be done in the shop. 90% of this work is automated and doesn’t require the technician’s attention. In the shop a tech can work on several systems simultaneously. On site or on the phone that tech is charging 100% of his/her time to you. That’s why on-site and subscription tech services are expensive and marginally effective.

Some malware infections use your PC as a “robot” in a “botnet.” This is a criminal network used to “mine” data for the purpose of identity theft or fraud. They don’t want you to know they are inside your PC so they try not to interfere with its normal operation. Millions of Americans are, at this moment serving the evil ends of the “botnet herders” without a clue. Are you? Most of the infected PCs that come to us have adequate protection software but malware protection software can’t keep users from falling for “Trojan Horse” scams that trick them into inviting the bad guys in. Our advice is to make sure your

Estimate (GFE). All lenders are required to give you a Good Faith Estimate of fees and charges within three days of taking your loan application. If a lender takes an application from you for a mortgage loan, make sure they give you a GFE. The GFE will show you what the lender is planning to charge for the loan, the interest rate, the payment, and whether or not your loan rate is locked in. DON”T: Let a lender pressure you into acting on any kind of loan. If a lender tells you, “This rate is only available if you lock in today” that is not entirely true. Yes, rates can change from day to day, but in most cases, they do not fluctuate wildly from one day to the next. If a lender says “I can’t lock in your loan until you pay the $200 application fee,” that is a red flag. Lenders are not supposed to

virus scan is up to date and running and scan your PC once a week with Malwarebytes. Make sure you are running the latest and most secure versions of your OS (operating system), browser (Chrome, Mozilla) and third party ad-ons (Java, Reader, Flash etc). Use the automated update feature in these programs up BUT- only as a reminder. For example, when a screen prompts you to “click” to update your Reader, Java or Flash, DON”T DO IT! It may or may not be legit. Use that prompt as a reminder to go to the legitimate Adobe, Java or Flash website and download the latest versions.

Avoid all these problems and just buy an Apple? Not really. Apple has its own malware and other issues and costs 2-3 times as much as a comparable PC. There are many reasons why Apple’s 7% share of the worldwide PC business continues to shrink. Apples iPhones and iPads are also rapidly losing worldwide market share to Android devices and the iWatch looks like a low tech, late to market flop. Sure the Apple cultists and Fanboys will prop Apple up for a couple more quarters but in our humble opinion, Apple has peaked. Take your profit and run.

charge up-front fees. Also, the best lenders provide their clients with lending options and fully explain the options. Don’t ever feel obligated to “finish” a loan with a lender just because you started the process. Current laws allow for clients to cancel loans with lenders for just about any reason with no penalties. DO: Read the paperwork a lender gives you. This is especially true of the Good Faith Estimate. Ask questions about what you don’t understand. A good lender will take the time to explain everything. DON’T: Hesitate to give me a call if you have any questions about this column. I am always available to talk about rates, and mortgage lending in general. My cell is 619-823-1454. Have a great week!

Some veterans need minimal help to find housing or re-enter the civilian workforce, others need intensive health and social services. To meet this need, Interfaith initiated a recuperative care program aimed at providing homeless ill veterans with a place to recover from their medical conditions in a clean and safe environment. A generous donation from the Hawthorne family helped secure a bigger building. Extensive renovations are necessary and the City of Escondido has allocated some For more information about TERC, visit www.escondidorepublicanclub.com.

Showers and Flowers

Many of us mid-west transplants remember the maxim, “April showers bring May flowers.” Unfortunately, the California May flowers will be only memories, because there were few April showers and, with the warm weather, have all but dried up. So, more showers and flowers are but dry hopes. We have been informed about the worst drought in four years by the authorities. Recently, our Governor, after touring the arid Sierra snow pack, finally declared the State’s desperate plight of water shortages with

The bigger issue is more provocative. Is it global warming, the unusual action of the sun with massive eruptions, just a weather cycle such as has happened in past times, or even a Biblical question of God’s judgment of withholding the rain, such as the ancient Israelites experienced because of their sins? As we search for answers, we do know time and again human beings have had to adjust to changing times, weatherwise, just to survive.

Perhaps it is time to seek the counsel of the Creator (God) for wisdom in knowing what to do without April showers and May flowers. Such wisdom is necessary in knowing what each of us can and must do to protect this precious resource of water God has given us.

women and children, with the ensuing captivity, were wondering if the great brave was not their own child; thereupon ensued the greatest anxiety to see me and claim me as a son.

I did not say a word impugning the authenticity of Greenwood's romance. I was greatly edified at the inordinate gullibility of the red man, and when they had gone to spread their tale of wonderment, we had a hearty laugh at their expense.

Our party now broke up; detachments were formed and leaders chosen. We issued from the camp, and started in all directions, receiving instructions to return within a certain day. There were a great many fur trappers with us, who hunted for their own profit, and disposed of their peltry to the mountain traders. The trappers were accompanied by a certain number of hired men, selected according to their individual preferences, the strength of their party being regulated by the danger of the country they were going to. If a party was going to the Black Foot country, it needed to be numerous and well armed. If going among the Crows or Snakes, where no danger was apprehended, there would go few or many, just as was agreed upon among themselves. But each party was in strict obedience to the will of its captain or leader: his word was supreme law. My party started for the Crow country, at which I was well content; for, being a supposed Crow myself, I expected to fare well among them. It seemed a relief, also, to be in a place where we could rest from our unsleeping vigilance, and to feel, when we rose in the morning, there was some probability of our living till night. Next time: Departure from the Rendezvous.—Trouble in Camp.—Leave the Party and Traps.—Arrival at the Crow Village.—Great Stir among the Crows.—Joyful Meeting with my Crow Parents, Brothers, and Sisters.—Three Years without seeing a White Man.

Carlsbad Preparing New Art Plan – The Carlsbad City Council got an update at a recent meeting about efforts to enhance public spaces through public art that engages residents and visitors, helps celebrate the city’s identity and contributes to the overall quality of life in Carlsbad. “Public art gives a community a sense of identity . . . Carlsbad is a unique place, and public art can help define who we are, where we are going, and who we aspire to be,” said City of Carlsbad Cultural Arts Manager Vincent Kitch. The new master plan will replace the existing one, in place since 1996, and will work in tandem with the general plan. It will outline priority projects and provide policies and procedures to guide future art acquisitions. The project team will gather input from community members and arts leaders, and incorporate input from Envision Carlsbad, a two-year public outreach process led by the city. Arts and culture was one of the nine core values the community said were important to the future of Carlsbad when the Carlsbad Community Vision was established. The Cultural Arts Office has undertaken significant public art projects in the past year, including Roger Stoller’s sculpture, “Coastal Helix,” at the new roundabout at Carlsbad Boulevard and State Street; commissioning of new art for Fire Station No. 3, under construction in Robertson Ranch, and placement of new artwork in the city’s Sculpture Garden.

ink needed to be brushed with iron sulfate, rather than just passed over heat or light. These measures helped maintain secrecy and ease Woodhull's anxiety about possibly being detected.

In New York, Woodhull would collect information from various sources, including British officers staying at boarding house where he would lodge in New York. Then he would return to Setauket and pass the information to whaleboat operator Caleb Brewster, who would take the message across Long Island Sound to Major Tallmadge, who would then send the information to Washington.

The initial plan had problems. Woodhull's trips supposedly were to visit his sister, but the visits became too frequent, especially given the danger at the time. To further suspicions by the British, Woodhull, instead of being with his sister, he spent all of the time wandering the city without an obvious purpose, suggesting there was another reason he traveled to New York. The British became very suspicious by the spring of 1779. Woodhull came up with a new plan and recruited Robert Townsend, who lived at his sister's boardinghouse. Woodhull discovered Townsend was a secret patriot, having been radicalized by British atrocities in his hometown of Oyster Bay. On June 20, 1779, Townsend sent his first report under the name of "Samuel Culper, Junior.” As a resident, Townsend was better suited to spy in Manhattan. Moreover, his mercantile background gave him a good reason to inquire about British troop movements and shipping.

The American Culper Spy Ring was instrumental in uncovering Gen. Benedict Arnold as a traitor by going over to the British. This is a long, complex story throughout the Revolutionary War years and too long to put down in the space allotted to this column. In AMC's current Revolutionary War TV spy drama series, “Turn: Washington's Spies,” is based on Alexander Rose’s historical book “Washington's Spies: The Story of America's First Spy Ring” (2007). The entire first season can be found on Netflix. To catch up with this season’s offering, go to “On Demand” to get earlier episodes.

Hi kids, this is Batman, the old Caped Crusader.

Y'know, the '60s was a glorious

era. I could still fit into my suit, Robin and I could hang out together without those rumors spreading, and even though the Batmobile got two miles a gallon, gas was still cheap enough that I could still afford Alfred. I have retired from crime-fighting. Oh, I'll take an occasional gig . . but, generally, I'm a retired gentleman.

I now serve as a mild-mannered reporter for a terrific weekly newspaper in North San Diego County.

As a Gift for those you love (and this includes yourself Love thy neighbor as you love thyself, I always say) nothing would make a better gift than a gift subscription to The Paper, a wildly successful weekly newspaper that features dynamite cover stories as well as hilarious jokes on its Chuckles page, great columns by experts in their field . . . and a round-up of daily news. One might even call it a news magazine. (I know the editor/publisher personally and he said it was okay to say that). Cost is a measly $30 for a six month subscription, or $60 for a full Bat-year subscription.

Whether you live in Gotham or sunny California, this weekly news magazine is just the ticket and would make a great gift. You can get a feel for what The Paper is like by going to its Facebook site. Just type in "The Paper" in the search window and you'll have the link. Folks who go there and "like" The Paper get put on Batman's personal "food folks" list. Just call and ask for me, Batman, on my Batphone at 760.747.7119.

Trust me. Those on your gift list will go batty for it.

Batman out.

his home filed a complaint. Two weeks after filing the complaint, he sold his house. That was back in August, but the city didn’t get around to inspecting the museum and issuing the order until early this year. By then, the party who had complained had not only sold his house but moved to Texas.

Thus Escondido may lose a very attractive museum of paleontology. Someone, as Realtor Donna Davis has suggested, may want to ask the City Council to grant a variance or extension.

Luckily for him I was still up playing my Bagpipes. ••••• I saw a poor old lady fall over today on the ice!! At least I presume she was poor - she only had $1.20 in her purse. ••••• My girlfriend thinks that I'm a stalker. Well, she's not exactly my girlfriend yet. ••••• One year, I decided to buy my mother-in-law a cemetery plot as a Christmas gift...

I turned to her and said, 'Do you want to have sex?' 'No,' she answered.

I then said, 'Is that your final answer?' She didn't even look at me this time, simply saying,

'Yes..'

So I said, "Then I'd like to phone a friend." And that's when the fight started... I took my wife to a restaurant…

The waiter, for some reason, took my order first. "I'll have the steak, rare, please."

He said, "Aren't you worried about the mad cow?"

"Nah, she can order for herself." And that's when the fight started...

My wife and I were sitting at a table at her high school reunion.

She kept staring at a drunken man swigging his drink as he sat alone at a nearby table. I asked her, "Do you know him?"

"Yes," she sighed. "He's my old boyfriend. I understand he took to drinking right after we split up those many years ago, and I hear he hasn't been sober since." "My God!" I said, "Who would

think a person could go on celebrating that long?" And that’s when the fight started...

When our lawn mower broke and wouldn't run, my wife kept hinting to me that I should get it fixed.

But, somehow I always had something else to take care of first; the shed, the boat, making beer… Always something more important to me. Finally, she thought of a clever way to make her point.

When I arrived home one day, I found her seated in the tall grass, busily snipping away with a tiny pair of sewing scissors. I watched silently for a short time and then went into the house. I was gone only a minute, and when I came out again I handed her a toothbrush.

I said, "When you finish cutting the grass, you might as well sweep the driveway." And that’s when the fight started…

My wife sat down next to me as I was flipping channels. She asked, "What's on TV?" I said, "Dust."

And that’s when the fight started...

My wife was hinting about what she wanted for our upcoming anniversary.

She said, "I want something shiny that goes from 0 to 165 in about 2 seconds." I bought her a bathroom scale.

And that’s when the fight started ...

My wife was standing nude, looking in the bedroom mirror. She was not happy with what she saw and said to me,

"I feel horrible; I look old, fat and ugly. I really need you to pay me a compliment.' I replied, "Your eyesight's damn near perfect."

And that’s when the fight started ... the doctors say I will walk again, but I will always have a limp.

The Paper SUMMARY OF ORDINANCE INTRODUCED/ ADOPTED

ORDINANCE NO. 2015-1408

AN INTERIM URGENCY ORDINANCE OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF SAN MARCOS, CALIFORNIA, IMPOSING A TEMPORARY MORATORIUM ON THE ESTABLISHMENT OF RETAIL PET STORES IN THE CITY OF SAN MARCOS

The City Council of the City of San Marcos, California, in accordance with the freedom afforded to charter cities generally, and by the Charter of the City of San Marcos specifically, and pursuant to Government Code Section 65858, does ordain as follows:

Section 1. Findings and Purpose. The City Council finds and declares that: (a) The San Marcos Municipal Code does not currently provide for the regulation of retail pet stores in the City of San Marcos; and

(b) The City Council has been made aware of public protests occurring outside a newly established retail pet store in the City, has been approached by animal rights activists regarding their opposition to the retail sale of dogs, cats and/or rabbits received from commercial breeding operations, and has received a number of requests from City residents to enact an ordinance prohibiting the retail sale of these animals, which contributes to the overpopulation of animals in the City; and (c) The City Council has also received countervailing views on retail pet stores from the owner of such a business which has recently opened in San Marcos; and (d) According to the Humane Society of the United States, hundreds of thousands of dogs and cats are housed and bred at “puppy mills” or “kitten factories,” which are substandard breeding facilities that mass-produce animals for sale to the public, typically through retail pet stores; and (e) Animals born and raised at puppy mills and kitten factories are more likely to have genetic disorders and lack adequate socialization, and animals used for breeding purposes at these facilities may be subject to inhumane housing conditions and indiscriminately disposed of when they reach the end of their profitable breeding cycle; and

(f) According to the San Diego County Humane Society’s Annual Report, in 2014, while dogs, cats and/or rabbits were being sold in retail pet stores throughout the County, more than 1,600 animals were euthanized in County area shelters; and (g) Prohibiting the sale of dogs, cats and/or rabbits in retail pet stores, unless the animals are obtained from a (i) city, county or other governmental animal shelter; (ii) animal control agency; (iii) humane society; (iv) animal rescue organization; or (iv) other non-commercial breeding establishment, may encourage pet consumers to adopt animals from shelters and rescue agencies, which could result in saving animals’ lives, decreasing the shelter animal euthanasia rate and reducing public costs for sheltering animals; and (g) As an urgency measure to protect and preserve the public welfare, California Government Code Section 65858 authorizes local governments to adopt an interim ordinance prohibiting any uses that may be in conflict with a contemplated general plan, specific plan, or zoning proposal that the legislative body, planning commission, or planning department is consid-

ering, studying or intends to study within a reasonable time; and

(h) It is necessary for the City to impose a temporary moratorium prohibiting the establishment of retail pet stores within the City’s jurisdictional boundaries to provide time for the City to study potential impacts that these establishments may have on animal welfare, craft regulations governing retail pet stores in the City as deemed appropriate and necessary, minimize any negative effects the newly established retail pet store might have on nearby businesses, property owners and the residents of the City, and to evaluate pending challenges to local ordinances that permanently ban the sale of dogs, cats and/or rabbits in other jurisdictions. Section 2. Temporary Moratorium Established. For the reasons described above, the City Council has determined it is necessary to enact an interim urgency ordinance imposing a temporary moratorium on the establishment of retail pet stores in the City of San Marcos pursuant to Government Code Section 65858.

The City has a compelling interest in protecting animal welfare, preserving the peace in its neighborhoods, and providing clear local regulation. The adoption of this Ordinance is necessary on an urgency basis for the immediate preservation of animal welfare. No permit or other applicable license or entitlement for use, including but not limited to the issuance of a business license, building permit, conditional use permit, or other land use approval, shall be approved and/or issued for the establishment of any retail pet store that would engage in the sale of dogs, cats and/or rabbits within the jurisdiction of the City. This Ordinance shall exempt animal shelters, humane societies, and animal rescue organizations, and nothing in this Ordinance shall prevent a retail pet store, or its owner, operator or employees from providing space and appropriate care for animals owned by a publicly-operated animal control agency or shelter, nonprofit humane society, or nonprofit animal rescue organization and maintained at the retail pet store for the purpose of adopting those animals to the public. This Ordinance shall not preclude the continued operation of any retail pet establishment lawfully existing on the effective date hereof, for the temporary moratorium period.

Section 3. Consistency with the SMMC. Any provision of the SMMC that is inconsistent with any provision of this Ordinance, to the extent of such inconsistencies and no further, is hereby repealed or modified only to the extent necessary to effect the provisions of this Ordinance. Section 4. Severability. If any section, sentence, clause or phrase of this Ordinance is determined to be invalid, illegal or unconstitutional by a decision or order of any court or agency of competent jurisdiction, then such decision or order will not affect the validity and enforceability of the remaining portions of this Ordinance. The City Council declares that it would have passed and adopted the Ordinance, and each section, sentence, clause or phrase thereof, regardless of the fact that any one or more sections, subsections, sentences, clauses, or phrases be declared invalid or unconstitutional.

Section 5. Effective Date. This Ordinance shall take effect immediately upon adoption as an urgency measure. The temporary moratorium shall be of no further force and

• Page 16 • May 07, 2015

effect forty five (45) days from the date of the adoption of this Ordinance, unless, prior to its expiration, following a noticed public hearing in accordance with Government Code Section 65090, the City Council extends the Ordinance pursuant to Government Code Section 65858.

Section 6. Publication. Within fifteen (15) days following the adoption of this Ordinance, the City Clerk shall certify to the passage of this Ordinance and cause the same to be published in accordance with the provisions of State Law in a newspaper of general circulation designated for legal notices publication in the City of San Marcos.

PASSED, APPROVED AND ADOPTED at a special meeting of the City Council of the City of San Marcos held on the 28th day of April, 2015, by the following roll call vote: AYES: COUNCILMEMBERS: JABARA, JENKINS, JONES, ORLANDO, DESMOND NOES: C O U N C I L M E M BERS: NONE ABSENT: C O U N C I L M E M BERS: NONE Phillip Scollick/City Clerk, City of San Marcos PD 5/7/2015 ORDINANCE INTRODUCED

The Paper • Page 20 • May 07, 2015

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.

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

Symptoms Are NOT The Problem

extent of your disc damage for only $70. This examination will consist of a detailed neurological evaluation, extensive orthopedic testing, and a detailed analysis of the findings of your evaluation. 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.

Dr. Stephen Heilman, DC at the Spine and Neuropathy Care Center in Escondido, CA will do a spinal disc severity examination to determine the
