by lyle e davis For a long time I have thought that a neat idea would be to plop oneself down in a police station, go through the case files, interview the police officers involved and write stories about law enforcement. I don’t need to do that. George Nuttall has done it. George is a retired California Highway Patrol Captain, retiring in 1983. Since that time, he has been busy chronicling his 30 plus years in law enforcement work. It makes for a rollicking romp through law enforcement, starting with the San Diego Police Department, then continuing on with his CHP career. Lots of humor, lots of camaraderie, some tragic moments, some broken hearts, a few tears . . . but some enjoyable read. As I read through George’s book, “Cops, Crooks and other Crazies,” I recalled stories cop pals of mine had told me about ‘the early years.’ Thirty, forty or more years ago, Escondido cops did not have the tight rules and regulations they do today. It was typical to break in a ‘rookie’ by sending a radio call at 2 or 3am about a large man near the corner of Juniper and what is today known as E. Valley Parkway, with a large object in his hands, possibly a weapon. Blue pants, white shirt. Suspicious character. The poor rookie would drive up and down in his patrol car anxiously looking for this suspicious character . . . while the other on duty cops had a good laugh at his expense. The rookie, worried whether or not he would pass his probationary period, was more The Paper - 760.747.7119
and more frustrated because if he couldn’t find this suspicious character after such a vivid description and repeated radio calls . . . well, would he survive his probation period. The tall suspicious person was the Joor Muffler Man, a tall statue about 40’ high, and a landmark in Escondido for years . . . and it’s still standing. Similar exploits were pulled
in the San Diego Police Department back when George Nuttall became a rookie police officer. It wasn’t all fun and games, though. He learned some good law enforcement and investigative techniques. He met and knew some great cops who became life long friends. He also met cops that should never have been hired as cops. Incompetents and even worse. Some were
out and out thieves. George Nuttall does not have a great deal of love for the San Diego Police Department back in ‘the early days.’ Lots of terrible mismanagement, political favoritism, bribery, corrupt cops, an ‘old boy network,’ and less than fair treatment for good cops . . . often with outrageous violation of the rights of hard working cops to retain their jobs by being conscientious enforcers

Some, if they didn’t ‘look the other way’ when they were told to do so by higher-ups . . . would soon find themselves no longer a member of the San Diego Police Department. Nuttall survived his probationary period with high marks, was well liked by his fellow officers . . . and managed to avoid any disciplinary problems from sometimes dictatorial Police Chiefs, Deputy Chiefs, and/or Police Commissioners. After two years, two months and two weeks, however, he’d had enough. His application to become a member of the California Highway Patrol was accepted and he embarked on his lifelong dream of becoming a “Prince of the Highways.” Going back to his original entry into law enforcement, we tag along with Nuttall as he learns the ropes . . . learns to identify the good cops from the bad cops, learns how to enforce the law fairly, and
Give Us This Day Our Daily Chuckle
This week, a compendium of wit, wisdom and neat stuff you can tell at parties. Enjoy! Car Keys Several days ago as I left a meeting at a hotel; I desperately gave myself a personal TSA pat down. I was looking for my keys. They were not in my pockets. A quick search in the meeting room revealed nothing. Suddenly I realized I must have left them in the car. Frantically, I headed for the parking lot. My wife has scolded me many times for leaving the keys in the ignition. My theory is the ignition is the best place not to lose them. Her theory is that the car will be stolen. As I burst through
to just become ‘a good cop.’ During his two plus years with the San Diego Police Department he saw lots of things he was proud of, lots of good officers . . . but he also saw bad cops. At that time, WWII had drained the manpower pools and they had not yet built up. The department was desperate for manpower so they’d hire most anyone. No great physical requirement, no agility tests, very little in schooling requirements. Once on the department there was no overtime, pay wasn’t the best, so the temptation to earn a couple extra bucks was often tempting to some cops. There was, for example, a major problem with corruption at the Board of Equalization. Shakedowns of bars and liquor stores were common, with bribes going to mysterious guys with fedorah hats and overcoats, standing in darkened doorways, to receive envelopes with old bills. Upon receipt of the money, flimsy charges against these bars and liquor stores mysteriously disappeared. They had been ‘taken care of’ the door, I came to a terrifying conclusion. Her theory was right. parking lot was empty.
I immediately called the police. I gave them my location, confessed that I had left my keys in the car, and that it had been stolen. Then I made the most difficult call of all, "Honey," I stammered; I always call her "honey" in times like these. "I left my keys in the car, and it has been stolen." There was a period of silence. I thought the call had been dropped, but then I heard her voice. "Idiot", she barked, "I dropped you off!" Now it was my time to be silent. Embarrassed, I said, "Well, come and get me."
by the Board of Equalization. Cops, the Mafia, and corrupt officials who were within the Board of Equalization, all were eventually rooted out and the Board of Equalization initiated reforms so these abuses could no longer continue.
could not work with “Red” any longer. The Sergeant had received a number of other complaints from other officers who did not want to work with Red either. Nuttall’s re-assignment to another partner was approved.
George had to walk beats, as well as patrol beats. Walking a beat for eight hours was a tiring job . . . but it let you ‘know’ the street and its people. You learned friend from foe . . . you learned how you could help, as well as enforce the law. You learned that sometimes a pat on the back and a friendly smile was a cop’s best enforcement tool. Slapping someone into jail just for the hell of it was not only inefficient, it was often unfair.
Red was eventually fired, then became a bartender and drunk himself to death, dying at age 42.
Nuttall learned by observing and practicing. One officer, Red Younger, Nuttall felt was nothing but a street thug with a badge. He watched him steal things, drink when he was on duty, steal money from prisoners. Eventually, Nuttall went to his Sergeant and asked to be reassigned to another officer. He simply walking twenty-five miles to school every morning.... Uphill... Barefoot... BOTH ways...yadda, yadda, yadda And I remember promising myself that when I grew up, there was no way in hell I was going to lay a bunch of crap like that on my kids about how hard I had it and how easy they've got it! But now that I'm over the ripe old age of fifty, I can't help but look around and notice the youth of today. You've got it so easy! I mean, compared to my childhood, you live in a damn Utopia! And I hate to say it, but you kids today, you don't know how good you've got it! 1) I mean, when I was a kid we didn't have the Internet. If we wanted to know something, we had to go to the damn library and look it up ourselves, in the card catalog!!
For the Over 50 Crowd
2) There was no email! We had to actually write somebody a letter - with a pen! Then you had to walk all the way across the street and put it in the mailbox, and it would take like a week to get there! Stamps were 10 cents!
When I was a kid, adults used to bore me to tears with their tedious diatribes about how hard things were. When they were growing up; what with
3) Child Protective Services didn't care if our parents beat us. As a matter of fact, the parents of all my friends also had permission to kick our ass!
She retorted, "I will, as soon as I convince this policeman I have not stolen your car." Yep, it's the golden years.
Another of Nuttall’s partners was such a trusted cop that the then-Attorney General, Pat Brown (later Governor) requested him on a special assignment probing the Mafia and its San Diego connections. Brown’s office bypassed the Command Element of the San Diego Police Department as they suspected, rightly so, that someon ‘high up’ in the department, notably the Sergeant in charge of the Vice Squad, was on the take and was a snitch. Nuttall’s partner, Gary Gray, successfully gathered infor‘Cops and Crooks’ Cont. on Page 3 Nowhere was safe! 4) There were no MP3's or Napsters or iTunes! If you wanted to steal music, you had to hitchhike to the record store and shoplift it yourself! 5) Or you had to wait around all day to tape it off the radio, and the DJ would usually talk over the beginning and @#*% it all up! There were no CD players! We had tape decks in our car or those great 8 track players. We'd play our favorite tape and "eject" it when finished, and then the tape would come undone rendering it useless. Cause, hey, that's how we rolled, Baby! Dig? 6) We didn't have fancy crap like Call Waiting! If you were on the phone and somebody else called, they got a busy signal, that's it! 7) There weren't any freakin' cell phones either. If you left the house, you just didn't make a damn call or receive one. You actually had to be out of touch with your "friends". OH MY GOSH ! Think of the horror... not being in touch with someone 24/7! And then there's TEXTING. Yeah, right. Please! You kids have no idea how annoying you are.

After six months, the Grand Jury returned indictments against Frank “Bompo” Bompensiero and other Mafia figures. The arrests and the resulting scandal resulted in a complete reforming of the ABC (Alcoholic Beverage Control) enforcement unit. Nuttall was grateful to a 25 year veteran, Sergeant George Mason, who had taken him under his wing, told him he’d be assigned to a number of different officers as partners. All officers, he said, had good habits . . . and maybe some bad ones. Adopt the good ones, disregard the bad ones. It was good advice. During his two years plus service with San Diego PD, Nuttall had his share of painful duties. One, a military veteran, a medic who had seen wounded and maimed service men, could not get the trauma out of his mind. He wound up hanging himself in a somewhat anticipated suicide. The man’s wife and daughter saw the resuls of the suicide. That was tough to take, particularly taking care of the young girl. He was also involved in a major shootout in Linda Vista in which seven persons were shot, including two police officers. Fortunately, none were fatally shot and the perpetrator was then arrested without further incident. His utter disdain for incompetence is displayed in his story about ‘the dunce.’ A fellow officer who was assigned as his partner. “The Dunce” was a five year veteran but was a compulsive gambler and had a bit of a drinking problem as well. He would start every shift by visiting his bartender/informant at a local ‘swingers bar,’ then return to the police car trying to conceal his alcoholic breath with breath mints and cigarettes. He was not interesting in doing any hard police work. He just wanted to put in his time. He drove the main artery streets, never the side streets (where crimes were more likely to be com-
mitted). He lacked good judgment and was not particularly observant; never more observant than when he asked “where’s the dead body?” and was told, “you’re standing on it.” Sure enough, someone had put a white bed sheet over the body and ‘the Dunce’ had walked right on top of the corpse. Eventually, ‘the Dunce’ wound up writing bad checks to cover his gambling losses and wound up in San Quentin . . . never a pleasant place for former cops to visit, let alone live. Nuttall does not hold a whole lot of love and admiration for the San Diego Police Department, in spite of the many friends he met on the force. Most often, that disdain was as a result of corrupt and inefficient management. They had arranged, for example, to order heavy ticket writing . . . because the PD got to keep 50% of the fine revenue. As a consequence, cops were urged to write tickets for anything they could. This rankled Nuttall. He believe in enforcing the law but common sense had to be applied as well. If you didn’t write enough tickets, you were subject to departmental discipline, real or implied. Overt and covert. Finally, Nuttall was assigned the job he had coveted. He became a motorcycle officer. He enjoyed this for as long as he could, but he knew his days on the San Diego Police Department were numbered. He had been accepted by the California Highway Patrol and would soon leave SDPD and begin a 30+ year career with his beloved California Highway Patrol. He was to become one of the “Princes of the Highways!” Nuttall’s accounts of his 30+ years with the California Highway Patrol is both interesting, fascinating and, sometimes, troubling. His days at the California Highway Patrol Academy were productive, interesting, challenging, and stayed with him for many years as he would return again and again as an instructor, an administrator, an advanced student, and for refresher courses. The one area he disagreed
with while a cadet, and still does, is the use of “High Stress Training” as practiced by the Los Angeles Police Department. This ‘high stress’ training was comparable to Marine Boot Camp and, he felt, was less productive than working cadets into proper physical and mental shape gradually, rather than total immersion training. His argument is supported by a thesis written by a Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department Captain, Edgar Oglesby. His thesis can be found at the USC Doheny Library, listed as ‘65035- Oglesby, Edgar Wixon. The effect of police academy training on the social attitude of police recrutes Decembe 1974, v. 138 leaves; 8cm.’ Basically, the thesis states, and statistically proves, that cadets and military members who are introduced gradually to physical and mental challenges do much better on retention of training, on social interaction, than those who were ‘force fed’ their training. To date, that philosophy has not been adopted by the CHP Academy. One disturbing element I found throughout Nuttall’s book was the fact that police agencies statewide, whether city, county, or state police, had plenty of malcontents and/or incompetent members of the force; there were also political ramifications as to who got promoted and who didn’t. While Nuttall had a number of superior fellow officers at both the level of the San Diego Police Department as well as the California Highway Patrol, he also found malcontents and incompetents in all agencies, including the Sheriff’s Department and the FBI. He names names and places and the actions or inactions that were or were not taken some of which resulted in the needless loss of life of law enforcement officers. He attained his life long dream of becoming a motorcycle officer but, with time and experience, he was promoted to Sergeant, then Lieutenant and, finally, to Captain.
Though he loves motorcycles and the career he had with them, he now recommends that the CHP and other law enforcement agencies remove them from their vehicle fleet, replacing them with automobiles. Why? He statistically demonstrates how there are more officers injured or killed on motorcycles than in standard automobiles and that, with the cost of acquisiton and maintenance, it is actually less expensive and more efficient to utilze regular autombiles. Nuttall acquired a skill in recognizing statistical trends, analyzing them and making recommendations which, when adopted, would end up saving the CHP in excess of $1 million. While he could well have collected 10% of the savings based on a plan that has always been in place at the state level for money saving ideas, he never once claimed the fees. He felt it was part of his job and was more important to him to see that effective changes were implemented. Later, when the changes were implemented and he computed the fees he could have earned, he shrugged his shoulders and moved on to other tasks. He was also adept at reorganizing departments and making them more efficient. He bridled at some of the promotions he saw being made because of politics . . . officers being promoted to Sergeant, Lieutenant and Captain based on their political ‘pull’ rather than their qualifications. He also bristles at the idea of “college degrees” being considered as of prime importance in advance offices to command level. He has seen way too many officers promoted to command level that had little or no street experience . . . only “theoretical” expertise in the most effective way to enforce the law. He learned, however, to bide his time and to be something of a diplomat. More than once he had to hold his tongue when he saw some‘Cops and Crooks’ Cont. on Page 5

As a result of this comprehensive investigation, instead of asking a question. After about three minutes, Sam interrupted him and asked him if he had a question. A verbal argument ensued . . . the audience member felt he had a right to complete his statement (I agree with him); Sam said he was there to respond to questions and wanted to spread the opportunity for questions around. Several other audience members responded negatively . . . "It's Mayor Sam, not King Sam!" Sam responded . . . "This is MY meeting. I have to be able to control it."
Man About Town
We attended Mayor Sam’s “Town Hall Meeting (Mayor Sam Abed, of Escondido). I thought Sam made a very good, professional presentation. Lots of graphs, charts, data, etc. . Unfortunately, Sam lost his temper about 80% of the way through his presentation. One member of the audience sought to read a statement
No, Sam. You called a Town Hall Meeting where people were invited to share their thoughts, ideas AND questions. This was not a City Council Meeting . . . it was supposed, by your own definition, to be a meeting to discuss ideas and exchange viewpoints. Had Sam simply let the man complete his prepared statement and asked his question, the matter would have blown over and, most likely, Sam would have had a generally positive Town Hall Meeting presentation. But Sam, losing
on May 8th, the Carlsbad Police Department served a total of 7 search warrants at the residences of identified gang members. The Carlsbad Police SWAT team was utilized to perform the service of two of the search warrants. The remaining five search warrants were served by Carlsbad Police personnel with the assistance of the North County Gang Task Force, Narcotics Task Force, San Diego County Probation Department, California State Parole, and Immigration Customs Enforcement (ICE). The search warrants were conducted at residences at the following locations: 1) 600 block Magnolia Avenue, Carlsbad (2 search warrants) 2) 3400 block Harding Street, Carlsbad 3) 3500 block Madison Street, Carlsbad 4) 3100 block Madison Street, Carlsbad 5) 3400 block Monroe Street, Carlsbad 6) 4000 block Vista Calaveras, Oceanside During this investigation, five gang members were arrested. Matthew Guaduarrama was his temper, hurt the chance he had to maintain a positive image of the Town Hall Meeting. I do applaud Sam for holding Town Hall Meetings . . . but he needs to be a bit more flexible in tolerating what he sees as 'interruptions' in the flow, in the dialogue. Just moments prior, for example, Sam had spent a good 15 minutes responding to another gentleman who had asked a question dealing with the accounting of, and comparison, of financial figures with other cities. Clay Phillips, the City Manager, also addressed the issues and spoke rather well. He, as much or more than Sam, has been under fire recently for having granted $200,000+ in raises to department heads, bypassing rank and file members of staff, as well as the library closing issue. This issue, probably more than any other, is what led to the firestorm of protest which necessitated a Town

Abraham Perez was booked into the Vista Detention Facility. Three Hispanic male juveniles were arrested and booked into Juvenile Hall for various aforementioned crimes.

While Nuttall saw some of his ideas adopted, but not all, it came to the attention of the higher-ups that this CHP officer had something on the ball. Not only was he a good officer but he was a thinker, a doer, and an efficient organizers. In time, in spite of the political appointments sometimes made ahead of him, he was promoted to Sergeant . . . then Lieutenant . . . and, finally, Captain. These promotions didn’t come overnight and they didn’t come because of political muscle. They came because this guy was good at what he did.

Whether something is "justified" or not is pretty subjective ---- particularly in the fuzzy world of politics.

He had listened to her concerns and communicated to her that he was interested in her health… first! It’s up to you, as our patients to ask us questions you have, or inform us of symptoms you’re experiencing… and it’s up to us, as your doctors to investigate and try to answer these questions and address your concerns. There’s an old saying: Doctors Don’t Have Patients; Patients Have Doctors. It really says, “Communicate with me so I can respond to you. We’ll both be better off when we do.” In this case, perhaps the first dentist, even though having a long “presentation” with the patient, failed to have a discussion with her and “hear” what the patient “needs” were… so the communication failed!

You call the real Cox Communications and they can’t be bothered. First, you go through an endless series of voice mails before you get a real, live, human being . . . and then your complaint is totally ignored. Call your local police department and they decline to do anything because “no crime has yet been committed.” Life does get frustrating, doesn’t it? It’s clear from some of the phony Cox emails that they were probably composed in either Russia or some Slavic country. “We are shorting down your account for inactivity unless you give us the following information.” Well! I can’t remember ever being “shorted down.” I think there is, or should be, a special place in Hell for these computer scam artists. Scott and Kenny Davis, the eldest and youngest sons of the Man ABout Town, were devastated by the news of Junior Seau’s suicide. Both had known Seau quite well. Scott had been to Seau’s home, played catch with his kids, would tease and joke with him; Kenny had gone surfing with Seau a number of times, as well as playing volleyball with him. Both reported Seau was just a fine, fine young man and great fun to be around. All of our hearts were broken when we watched the terrible grief of Seau’s mom as she faced reporters and sobbed her heart out. I, personally, never knew Seau. Never met him. But I felt I knew him . . . . if for no other reason, seeing the immense amount of grief poor Ms. Seau displayed during that shattering discussion with members of the press and her neighbors. Sad, sad, story.

North County Baptist Church Welcomes You!
If You Can SELL . .Let’s Talk! What drew me to North County Baptist Church was the family ministry. Pastor Miller, his wife and two sons, and his daughter-in-law, all make up a wonderful family atmosphere that I knew I wanted to be part of. His preaching, his music, his family atmosphere, all completely captivated me and I became a member and have been for 19 years. I came from a Catholic background but this Church has nourished me and given me great happiness. It has also helped me through some rough spots and was there when I needed help. It's just a very important part of my life, and that of my family. Tim Durfee

as a Captain, back in 1983. He retired after one year and six days as a Captain. He had attained the top rank he could achieve. Why he retired after only one year, we don’t know. He was in a position of influence that could have implemented some of the ideas he had long recommended and sought. He says he retired the day after his 53rd birthday because state retirement pensions were based on age and years of service at the time of retirement. He had 29 years with the CHP, two plus years with the San Diego Police Department. Perhaps that was enough. Before retiring, however, he had several particularly outstanding memories. First, on March 1, 1983, he directed the motorcade of cars and limousines carrying The Queen of England and staff, and President Ronald Reagan, Nancy, and their respective staffs. He coordinated the network of law enforcement agencies assigned to this task, including Secret Service, CHP, LA Sheriff’s Department, and members of the San Diego Police Department. He also had established a close friendship with President Ronald Reagan and the Secret Service Staff that protected Rancho Del Cielo, Reagan’s ranch near Santa Barbara. Since retiring from law enforcement he has continued to push for Law Enforcement Reform. He has also devoted much of his retirment years to a personal mission: that of proving the case about D. B. Cooper, the hijacker who, on November 24, 1971, bought a one-way ticket to Seattle at the Portalnd International Airport. He gave his name as Dan Cooper and was booked on a flight that left at 3:10pm. He has profiled D. B. Cooper as a former Green Beret and a compulsive gambler over his head in debt to the Las Vegas Mafia loan sharks who had given him his final warning:

Peeps is Pet of the Week at your Rancho Coastal Humane Society in Encinitas. He's a 4 year old, 12 pound, brown Tabby cat with a bright white chest that runs up into his face and whiskers. He can be shy at first, but pretty soon he'll be giving you soft head-butts to remind you it's time to pet the kitty. Peeps will also knead your lap. In the cattery we call that "Making Muffins." He arrived at RCHS around Easter. He's named after the Easter candies ... because he's so sweet. The adoption fee for Peeps is $125. That includes up to date vaccines, veterinary exam, neuter, and microchip. Rancho Coastal Humane Society is at 389 Requeza Street in Encinitas. Adoption hours: 11 to 5 Wednesday through Monday.

entry and stairwell.
His profile of Cooper was based on his knowledge of the Mafia loan sharks, their sadistic and deadly methods of dealing with welshers, and the fact that Las Vegas was still controlled by the Mafia at that time.
Nuttall’s research proves, he feels, that Cooper did not survive the jump. That he would have frozen in the subzero temperatures present at the altitude of his jump, and that his remains are on an island known as Government Island. He is furious that federal agencies have no computer track of his aircraft, thus being more accurate in determining where he jumped; that the feds have not been responsive to his written requests for information . . . and he is convinced there is a conspiracy, pushed initially by J. Edgar Hoover, the late dictatorial FBI director who Nuttall says was being blackmailed because of his homosexuality and his gambling debts.
During the investigation, a news reporter at a Portland Police station overheard a reference to “D. B. Cooper” and put it out over the news wires; thus Dan Cooper became D. B. Cooper for all time. Upon departure from Portland, Cooper passed a note to the flight attendants and flight crew demanding $200,000 cash, a backpack and four parachues and demanded the plane NOT land at Seattle’s SEATAC Airport until the money and parachutes were ready and could be given to him without delay. At 8:13 pm, Cooper jumped from the rear stairwell of the Boeing 727, the only aircraft at the time that had a rear

Second Public Hearing on Charter City
San Marcos to be featured in Strong Cities, Strong State campaign
The Escondido City Council will hold the second public hearing on the proposed Charter City ballot measure on Wednesday, May 23, 2012 at the 6:00 p.m. City Council meeting. A copy of the draft charter may be found on the City’s website at http://www.escondido.org/Data/Sit es/1/media/PDFs/CC_Proposal.PD F As part of the public hearing, the City Council requested that staff evaluate and bring back alternative forms of electing the mayor and city council for possible inclusion in the City Charter. Options to be reviewed include, among others, district elec-
tions, cumulative voting, run-off style elections and other options to the current at-large system of electing the Mayor and City Councilmembers. The Escondido City Council currently plans to place a charter city proposal on the November 2012 ballot to change the governing system from a general law city to a charter city. In California, there are two kinds of cities: charter cities and general law cities. Of the 477 cities in the state, 105 are chartered. Both kinds of cities have broad powers and enjoy considerable freedom in the form of government, which may be established, and the types of activities in which they may engage. The first public hearing was held on April 18, 2012.
Rancho Bernardo • Mayor Jerry Sanders Anyone who takes a trip to Downtown San Diego these days will notice an exciting addition to the city’s skyline. Our new Central Library is more than half complete, and the final structural beam was put in place in a Topping Out ceremony on April 27. I was excited to attend the Topping Out ceremony, which represented the outstanding progress that’s been made. This building is being constructed on time and on budget. The new Central Library will open its doors next summer.
22 study rooms and 400 computer stations. It’s the result of decades of work by community leaders and local volunteers, who raised the $185 million through private donations, grants and other funding, at no cost to the city’s general fund. The library’s most striking feature is its domed roof, which can already be seen rising above the East Village. This building will be a beacon for the Downtown neighborhood, as well as a resource for the entire city.
Now 57 percent complete, the library will be home to a new charter school, a 350 seat auditorium, 6 meeting rooms,
Vista • Mayor Judy Ritter Peace Officers Memorial Day is held annually in the United States on May 15 in honor of federal, state and local officers killed or disabled in the line of duty. This upcoming Tuesday marks this solemn occasion and flags will be lowered at all City of Vista facilities in remembrance of law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty. On this day, people are also reminded of the need to be vigilant against all forms of crime. Did you know that thanks to a dedicated group of volunteers, Vista residents can schedule vacation home security checks or have someone drop by to check on an
elderly or disabled person? The Vista Sheriff's Senior Patrol program provides this valuable service in the community. The volunteers not only enhance the safety in Vista’s neighborhoods but also improve the quality of life for home-bound seniors. Designed to draw upon the experience of senior citizens, the program is currently recruiting volunteers who are 50 years or older. Responsibilities range from administrative work, to patrolling neighborhoods, writing parking citations, and marking abandoned vehicles. To learn more about programs offered by the Senior Volunteers, or if you would like to volunteer, contact the Sherriff’s Senior Patrol office at 760.940.4434.
The City of San Marcos will be profiled next week as part of the ongoing “Strong Cities | Strong State” campaign highlighting local government success stories across California. “Strong Cities | Strong State” is a project of the League of California Cities and the California City Management Foundation (CCMF). We are excited to showcase San Marcos’ quality of life in this campaign. The city has done an incredible job balancing resources, maintaining top-notch service and providing an excellent quality of life for
our residents. The overarching goal of the “Strong Cities” campaign is to promote the innovation and experience of local officials in delivering vital services at a time when this expertise is vitally needed by state leaders struggling with fundamental issues of governance. “Strong Cities | Strong State” seeks to position cities as vital, necessary and equal partners in building a better California. The “Strong Cities | Strong State” website is the centerpiece of a campaign broadly promoting city success stories alongside profiles of the elected officials and city managers working together to build and maintain a high quality of life for California city residents.

We need to put that discussion aside till next week in order to address the rapidly spreading “social engineering” scam generally known as “The Microsoft Phone Scam.” There are several variations but in general it works like this. You get a call from someone claiming to be a Microsoft employee. He tells you Microsoft has reason to believe that your PC is badly infected. He offers to assist in checking out your PC in order to determine whether or not you
Neither Microsoft nor any legitimate company will “cold call” you to offer assistance with your PC. Criminals posing as representatives of legitimate companies make these calls. Their purpose is to gain access to your computer, personal data, and financial information or con you into paying them. One way or another, they plan to rob you. If you don’t hang up at once but instead co-operate with them by providing access to your PC, you’re screwed. Most folks smell a rat and hang up without allowing the scammer to access their PC but the scammers can be persistent and very persuasive.
To address California’s economic needs, I have introduced constitutional amendments that would encourage
In addition to stealing your personal and financial data and trying to get you to wire cash, bank transfers or credit card numbers they may also ask you to return calls to telephone numbers that appear to be American area
codes, but are really linked to foreign phone numbers that will dump massive international charges on your telephone bill. Of course there are thousands of other telephone and Internet “social engineering” scams. If you want to read more, simply type “internet scams” into your search engine. I received two “get rich quick E-mail” scams while I was writing this column. One from Benin says that if I send them $105 today they will send me $10,000 a day until I get the full amount (5.1 Million dollars) they’re holding for me. If you see a “Closed till Further Notice” sign on our door next week you’ll know it worked.
Last week one of our customers brought her fathers PC in. It seems that he had fallen hook, line and sinker for the “Microsoft scam” and had already sent a considerable amount of money to India for computer protection services. He had instructed his bank to wire even more money but Western Union refused the bank’s request to process the wire. They knew the address and knew it to be a scam. The bank told him that his PC had probably been hacked and was perhaps being controlled by a criminal network (botnet).
California Ranked Last by job growth and invite input Nation’s CEOs from the business communi-
California’s business and tax policies continue to suppress economic development and job creation. Chief Executive Magazine’s annual “Best & Worst States Survey” released its state rankings last week. California was ranked last by 650 CEOs from across the country. The survey evaluated categories like workforce quality, tax policies, and regulations. Once again, California falls behind in every category, and it illustrates why change in Sacramento is necessary.
They brought the PC to us and sure enough it was infected. We were able to remove the “Hacker” without having to reinstall the Windows operating system. Because his PC had been compromised, we advised him to change all his passwords. As it happened, he decided to trade his old desktop in on a new notebook PC and transfer his important files from the old desktop. This did not alter the need to change all of his passwords.
ty. Demand for improvement in California is evidenced by 11 percent unemployment, a workforce in need of retraining, and the departure of numerous businesses. Competitive tax incentives led more than 250 employers to move jobs to higher ranking states in 2011. The loss of businesses and jobs and their respective tax revenues are barriers to economic recovery. I believe overregulation, whether produced by bureaucracy or the legislative bill factory, burdens employers and employees. The legislature should be focused on creating jobs and increasing economic development in the state.
California’s Business Environment Still Lagging A recent study by Chief Executive Magazine once again ranked California as the worst state in the nation to do business. Unfortunately, this is the eighth year in a row that California has earned this dubious distinction. The survey, completed by 650 business leaders, graded states based on several factors including, taxes, regulations, quality of life and the quality of the workforce. The study also pointed out that 254 companies decided to leave California for greener pastures in other states – a 26% increase over the previous year. Despite the eco-
nomic downturn, states like Florida and Texas have made economic gains because of their business friendly economic policies. In fact, business tax and regulatory reforms recently enacted in Florida have led to the creation of 140,000 private sector jobs and a 2.1% drop in unemployment. If California wants to avoid this horrible ranking next year, our Legislature needs to take steps to reduce red tape and enact comprehensive tax reform. By encouraging businesses to grow here we can reduce the unemployment rate and breathe life into our struggling economy.

‘Local News’ Cont. from Page 10 After the ceremony, Scott A. Davis, of Escondido, was taken to Scripps Hospital Emergency Room, when his wet feet slipped on rocks after emerging from the ocean. His surfboard wound up hitting him in the chest resulting in several broken ribs. He was later released, after treatment. Mr. Davis is the eldest son of lyle e davis, editor and publisher of The Paper, and was a good friend of Junior Seau. Carlsbad Street Fair Wins Great Weather Treat Downtown Carlsbad was full of people last Sunday as balmy spring weather attracted an estimated 100,000 persons, who visited some 800 booths. The Carlsbad Chamber of Commerce holds the street fair in the spring and a similar event in the fall, organizers said. The chamber has been hosting its street fairs for 39 years. Escondido Police Arrest Man in Stabbing Death of Ex-Girlfriend’s Boyfriend Christopher James Selena, 41, was arrested on suspicion of breaking into his ex-girlfriend's town house in the 800 block of North Fig Street and stabbing her boyfriend to death. His ex-girlfriend fled to a friend's house and called police after she woke up and saw her ex-boyfriend standing near her bloody, unconscious boyfriend, according to an Escondido Police Department statement. Selena is a documented gang member whom she had obtained a domestic-violence restraining order against ---on suspicion of murder, authorities said.. The victim, whose name was not released, was pronounced dead at 4:45 a.m. Selena was arrested about 10:40 a.m. in the 1200 block of Keystone Way in Vista. Selena was named as a member of a San Marcos street gang and has been arrested on suspicion of violating restraining orders four times since 2010, and an additional
time for illegally possessing a knife, according to court documents and arrest records. June Primary Not Entirely an Open Election We've all heard that the June 5 Primary election is an open election; that is, you may vote across party lines. Well, that is not true as it applies to the offices of President of the United States and Central Committee members. The American Independent and Democratic parties are allowing registered voters who have declined to state a party preference to vote Democrat or American Independent without reregistering. The Republican Party is not allowing "decline to state" and "Independent" voters the right to vote Republican. If it is your desire to vote Republican for either of these two offices, you must be a registered Republican. The last day to register to vote in the June primary is Monday, May 21. Jeanne Bunch, retired Escondido City Clerk will be at Escondido's City Hall (City Council Chambers) from 5:30 p.m. until Midnight on May 21st to register voters. If you need to change your party affiliation, name or address, you must do so by this date. Have a Local News tip? Email it to: email@example.com

‘Commentary’ Cont. from Page 5 lose top administrators is not borne out by the facts ---- no matter what those charts say. If the rare employee or two is offered more money by a different public agency, there are ---- as proved above ----dozens of qualified people willing to take that job. Just because one auto shop might be paying its mechanics $50 an hour doesn't mean every other shop in town has to pay the same. If your $45-an-hour mechanic threatens to go to the other shop that pays more, it's an empty threat unless that higher-paying job comes open. And even then, it's going to be a competitive battle to get that job. With Escondido having shut down a library branch and cut back on other services (including pothole repairs, which are being donated to the city by a local business), it is irresponsible at best to have allowed the city manager to hand out these raises, which add up to more than $150,000 per year. The full City Council should reverse these, if at all legally possible, and put that money toward serving the residents whose taxes ultimately pay for every salary at City Hall. Agree? Or Disagree? Yo u r v i e w s a r e welcome via Letters to t h e E d i t o r . C e r t a i n l y, Escondido City officials, both elected and appointed, are welcome to respond to our comm e n t a r y.

Letters to the Editor Hooray for Chief Maher! Lyle— I read with interest your recent article about the activist protest at City Hall seeking the firing of our fine Chief of Police. It does my heart good to learn that the supporters of Jim Maher outnumbered those who would like to see him fired. Chief Maher has been doing a great job for our community and, because of his focus, our crime rate is down in Escondido. I can’t find any reason to fault his work and we hope he’ll stay on as Chief for as long as he’d like. /s/Mary Brown Escondido, CA. A Canadian Likes The Paper Recently I was waiting for an oil change at the Mazda dealership in Escondido, Ca, and picked up a copy of The Paper. As a Canadian, I was very impressed with Lyle Davis' article about Camp Douglas. We seem to only see movies and read books about the great efforts of the union army. I am not taking sides ... I was just amazed about the story and wanted the author to know that I really enjoyed (was fascinated) with his article. When we return in the fall, perhaps we may be fortunate enough to read another article with new history that we never aware of. Thank you,
