by lyle e davis We have been seeing growing frustration between American citizens and their governments . . . city, county, state and federal levels. An unwillingness to listen and/or respond, by both elected and appointed leaders, has been building tensions almost to the breaking point. We have been predicting for at least a year that if our government and political leaders do not start listening and responding to the American people, another revolution is likely to begin. One does not need to go back to 1776. Revolutions have occurred more recently than that . . . perhaps a sign of things to come? On 2 August 1946, some Americans, brutalized by their county government, used armed force to overturn it. These Americans wanted honest, open elections. For years they had asked for state or federal election monitors to prevent voter fraud -forged ballots, secret ballot counts, and intimidation by armed sheriff's deputies -- by the local political boss. They got no help. These Americans' absolute refusal to knuckle-under had been hardened by service in World War II. Having fought to free other countries from murderous regimes, they rejected vicious abuse by their county government. These Americans had a choice. Their state's Constitution - Article 1, Section 26 - recorded their right to keep and bear arms for the common defense. Few "gun control" laws had been enacted. These Americans were Tennesseeans of McMinn The Paper - 760.747.7119
County, located between Chattanooga and Knoxville, in Eastern Tennessee. The two main towns were Athens and Etowah. McMinn Countians had long been independent political thinkers. They also had long: accepted bribe-taking by
politicians and/or the Sheriff to overlook illicit whiskeymaking and gambling; financed the sheriff's department from fines - usually for speeding or public drunkenness - which promoted false arrests; put up with voting fraud by both Democrats and Republicans.
Tennessee State law barred voting fraud: ballot boxes had to be shown to be empty before voting; poll-watchers had to be allowed; armed law enforcement officers were barred from polling places; ballots had to be counted where any voter could watch.

Page 2 - May 17, 2012 ‘Revolution!’ Cont. from Page 1 The Great Depression had ravaged McMinn County. Drought broke many farmers; workforces shrank. The wealthy Cantrell family, of Etowah, backed Franklin Delano Roosevelt in the 1932 election, hoping New Deal programs would revive the local economy and help Democrats to replace Republicans in the county government. So it proved. Paul Cantrell was elected Sheriff in the 1936, 1938, and 1940 elections, but by slim margins. The Sheriff was the key County official. Cantrell was elected to the State Senate in 1942 and 1944; his chief deputy, Pat Mansfield, was elected sheriff. In 1946, Paul Cantrell again sought the Sheriff's office. World War II Ends; Paul Cantrell's Troubles Begin At end-1945, some 3,000 battle-hardened veterans returned to McMinn County. Sheriff Mansfield's deputies had brutalized many in

McMinn County; the GIs held Cantrell politically responsible for Mansfield's doings. Early in 1946, some newly-returned ex-GIs decided: to challenge Cantrell politically; to offer an all exGI, non-partisan ticket; to promise a fraud-free election. In ads and speeches the GI candidates promised: an honest ballot count; reform of county government. Veteran Bill White described the veterans' motivation: “There were several beer joints and honky-tonks around Athens; we were pretty wild; we started having trouble with the law enforcement at that time because they started making a habit of picking up GIs and fining them heavily for most anything—they were kind of making a racket out of it. After long hard years of service—most of us were hard-core veterans of World War II—we were used to drinking our liquor and our beer without being molested. When these things happened, the GIs got madder—the more GIs they arrested, the more they beat up, the madder we got …” At a rally, a GI speaker said, DON'T STICK YOUR ELBOW OUT SO FAR IT MAY GO HOME IN ANOTHER CAR.

This week, a compendium of wit, wisdom and neat stuff you can tell at parties. Enjoy! Burma Shave . . . For those who never saw any of the Burma Shave signs, here is a quick lesson in our history of the 1930's, '40's and '50's. Before there were interstates, when everyone drove the old 2 lane roads, Burma Shave signs would be posted all over the countryside in farmers' fields. They were small red signs with white letters. Five signs, about 100 feet apart, each containing 1 line of a 4 line couplet......and the obligatory 5th sign advertising Burma Shave, a popular shaving cream . Here are more of the actual signs:

"'The principals that we fought for in this past war do not exist in McMinn County. We fought for democracy because we believe in democracy but not the form we live under in this county.'" (Daily PostAthenian, 17 June 1946, p. 1).
on pistols, and blackjacks ready, pushed through the crowd to the voting precinct.
At end-July 1946, 159 McMinn County GIs petitioned the FBI to send election monitors. There was no response. The Department of Justice had not responded to McMinn Countians' complaints of election fraud in 1940, 1942, and 1944.
Ex-servicemen regard the day's proceedings with varying attitudes but most of them displayed a bitterness seldom seen in the fighting lines. One ex-soldier watching the guarded vote counting before it was moved to the county jail said: "Over there we had something to fight back with." Another remarked, "We just aren't well enough organized and we haven't got guns. We haven't got a chance with this gestapo."
From Ballots to Bullets The election was held on 1 August. 9:00 am Voting poles opened. Voter turn out was heavy.
To intimidate voters, Mansfield brought in some 200 armed "deputies." GI pollwatchers were beaten almost at once. 11:00 am-2:00 pm The corridor of the courthouse was crowded with voters, both men and women. Evidently in fear of some disorder, about 20 deputies, hands
This overgrown combat squad was reinforced by several uniformed and armed city policemen and a state highway patrolman with his hand fingering a heavy revolver.
"This is causing a lot of bitterness, and a lot of it will come later today," a man remarked. 2:45 pm - Tom Gillespie, a [black] farmer came into the Athens Water Company building, which was serving as the 11th Precinct, to vote. It is not clear which of Cantrell's men positioned himself behind Gillespie to observe his vote but when he was observed to be preparing to vote "the wrong way" the Cantrell man told

‘Revolution!’ Cont. from Page 2 Gillespie,'Nigger, you can't vote here today!'. You'll have to get out of here. You're voting in the wrong precinct." Gillespie protested to Deputy Windy Wise, "I've always voted here before." For this monumental impertinence, Wise slugged Gillespie with brass knuckles and shot him with what was said to be a U.S. Army .45 as he stumbled out the door. Gillespie suffered a flesh wound in the small of the back and was taken off by deputy sheriffs for what they said would be treatment.
The gunshot drew a crowd. Rumors spread that Gillespie had been "shot in the back"; he later recovered. (C. Stephen Byrum, The Battle of Athens; Paidia Productions, Chattanooga TN, 1987; pp. 155-57). 3:55 pm - The first poll closing come at the 12th Precinct, back of the Dixie Café and next to the county jail. The legal closing time was 4 pm. The door was locked and sheriff's deputies, hands on their pistols, guard against entry into the area. 4:15 pm - While GIs watched with a scowl Sheriff Mansfield and a dozen of his deputies piled into two cars and drove off to the 11th Precinct. There, deputies, with guns ready, kept all observers away from the sidewalk in front of the office, and a throng of several hundred watched silently from across the street.
Other deputies detained exGI poll-watchers in a polling place, as that made the ballot count "public.” A crowd gathered. Sheriff Mansfield told his deputies to disperse the crowd. When the two ex-GIs smashed a big window and escaped, the crowd surged forward. "The deputies, with guns drawn, formed a tight half-circle around the front of the polling place. One deputy, "his gun raised high ...shouted: 'You sons-of-bitches cross this street and I'll kill you!'" (Byrum, p. 165). Election Judge (and deputy sheriff) Karl Neil, pistol on hip, ordered Mrs H. A. Vestal and five other women to leave the polls. "Get out!" said Neil. The women stood their ground. "We have a right to watch you count the ballots," one said. ‘Go on, get out of here!" shouted Neil, and the women filed out, protesting.
Mansfield took the ballot boxes to the jail for counting. The deputies seemed to fear immediate attack, by the
"people who had just liberated Europe and the South Pacific from two of the most powerful war machines in human history." (Byrum, pp. 168-69). Chief Deputy Boe Dunn had deputies form a cordon from the precinct to the car and Dunn himself went in and stole the ballot box. At least 15 pistols were trained on the citizens of Athens as the deputies rolled away with the ballot box. They went straight to the county jail. Several citizens broke from the crowd, shouting, "Get your guns, boys, get your guns!" 5:10 pm - Two deputies, with badges and sidearms walked toward the crowd at Kennedy's garage and tire shop near the center of town. . This was a mistake as the crowd was quickly inflamed at the arrogance of the two deputies and suddenly there were yells of "Kill them, kill them" sounded in the streets. The deputies drew their guns and prepared to shoot down anyone who came near. Otto Kennedy and his civilian task force rushed across the street and overwhelmed the two deputies before the pair could choose a target for their fire. By now there were literally thousands of people — mostly men — strung along a three-block area. They were frightened people, and people who were ashamed of their town's politics, but something in the attitude of these embattled veterans held them. Two more deputies appeared. They had guns of course. But the group at the garage had two guns now. Kennedy's rangers made short work of them as they had the first two. Now the crowd had grown and one carried a 12-gauge shotgun and another had a repeating rifle. Unexpectedly, three deputies appeared on the street. They were all summarily captured and transferred out of town for their own safety. 5:30 p.m. The crowd remained in the streets. 6:35 pm - The sheriff's men, assisted by state highway patrolmen and city policemen carried the ballot box into the McMinn County Jail. As the sheriff's men carried the box across the jailhouse lawn, they were preceded by two men armed with shotguns and followed by four more equipped with heavy-gauge shotguns and highpowered rifles. 8:45 p.m. GI's Converge On The Jail A crowd of about 500 armed with pistols and light rifles moved on the jail.
Short of firearms and ammunition, the GIs had scoured the county to find them. By borrowing keys to the National Guard and State Guard Armories, they got three M-1 rifles, five .45 semiautomatic pistols, and 24 British Enfield rifles. The armories were nearly empty after the war's end. By eight p.m., a group of GIs and "local boys" headed for the jail to get the ballot boxes. They occupied high ground facing the jail but left the back door unguarded to give the jail's defenders an easy way out. The Battle of Athens 9:00 pm - Ralph Duggan, a former Navy lieutenant commander and a leader of the ex-GI's said the crowd was "met by gun fire" and because they had "promised that the ballots would be counted as cast," they had "no choice but to meet fire with fire." Violence flared anew with GIs reported firing on the county jail. Shooting began around 9:00 pm for the first time.
Those inside the jail mainly used pistols; they also had a "tommy gun" (a .45 caliber Thompson sub-machine gun). Firing subsided after 30 minutes: ammunition ran low and night had fallen. Thick brick walls shielded those inside the jail. Absent radios, the GIs' rifle fire was uncoordinated. "From the hillside, fire rose and fell in disorganized cascades. More than anything else, people were simply 'shooting at the jail'." (Byrum, p. 189). 11:00 pm - Sheriff Pat Mansfield and deputies threatened to kill three GI hostages held within the jailhouse. The three GI hostages are Felix Harrod, Tom Dooley and Walter Ellis. 11:35 pm-12:40 am - Thousands of rounds of shots were exchanged between ex-GIs and an estimated 75 deputies barricaded in the McMinn County jail. Former soldiers were pouring lead into every opening in the brick jail. The officers' returning fire was weakening. Some GIs were firing from ground level across White Street. Others were on roofs on the Power Company Building and other near-by structures.
Governor McCord mobilized the State Guard, perhaps to
scare the GIs into withdrawing. The State Guard never went to Athens. McCord may have feared that Guard units filled with ex-GIs might not fire on other ex-GIs. At about 2 a.m. on 2 August, the GIs forced the issue. Men from Meigs county threw dynamite sticks and damaged the jail's porch. The panicked deputies surrendered. GIs quickly secured the building. Paul Cantrell faded into the night, almost having been shot by a GI who knew him, but whose .45 pistol had jammed. With the Cantrell forces conquered, ten years of suppressed rage exploded. The townspeople set upon the captured deputies and, but for the GIs, probably would have killed them all. Minus Wilburn, a particularly unpopular deputy, had his throat slashed; Biscuit Farris, Cantrell’s prison superintendent, had his jaw shattered by a bullet; and Windy Wise was kicked and beaten senseless. Joined by a number of their fellows, the GIs cleared the jail of the rioters and locked up their prisoners for the night. Mansfield's deputies were kept overnight in jail for their own safety. Calm soon returned: the GIs posted guards. The rifles borrowed from the armory were cleaned and returned before sun-up. 7:00 a.m. Sunrise - Battle over. The veterans armed with rifles were patrolling the streets to maintain order by sunrise. 7:05 am - Frank Cantrell, Mayor of Etowah issued the following statement: "In behalf of my brother Paul Cantrell, I wish to concede the election to the G.I. candidates in order to prevent further shooting. (Signed) Frank Cantrell. 4:00 p.m., Saturday, Aug. 3 - Three man commission chosen as governing body by mass meeting at Court House. Volunteers by hundreds offer assistance in setting up government framework. 9:00 pm - Fifteen hundred citizens pour into Athens with firearms to back the new government. Telephone calls from neighboring cities pledge aid if needed in defense of the town. "The G-I election officials went to the polls unarmed to have a fair elec-

Page 4 - May 17, 2012 Police Apprehend Sergio Lopez - wanted for Shooting at Two Escondido Police Officers Sergio Lopez was wanted for shooting at two police officers while they were trying to apprehend him on February 8, 2012. After Lopez's attack on two EPD officer, EPD detectives tried to find Lopez and were unsuccessful. They subsequently obtained a warrant for his arrest. On Wednesday, May 9th, at about 9:00 PM, EPD received information from US Marshals that Sergio Lopez had been released to the US Marshals Office on the US side of the US / Mexico International Border. Lopez had been living in Mexico to evade capture up until tonight. Lopez’s arrest was the result of a relationship and agreement between the Mexican authorities, US Marshal's Office, and EPD. The apprehension of Lopez could not have happened without of the
cooperation of the Mexican authorities. Mexican authorities located and apprehended Lopez while he was in Mexico and turned him over to US authorities at the border. Lopez is a US citizen. Lopez was released to EPD detectives and brought back to the Escondido Police Department for questioning and processing. On the day of the intial incident, Lopez violated several laws by shooting at EPD officers with a semiautomatic handgun and resisting arrest. Fortunately, no police officers nor bystanders were hit by the bullets Lopez fired. The Arrest Warrant listed the specific charges Lopez faces, and his bail is $2M. Three Women Arrested In Vista Prostitution Sting Three women were arrested in a prostitution sting in Vista, and about $3,800 in cash was seized, San Diego County sheriff's deputies said Sunday.

Tanisha Demeyers, 19, was booked on suspicion of solicitation for prostitution, possession of methamphetamine and conspiracy to commit a crime, he said. April J. Blohm-Young, 21, was arrested on suspicion of prostitution, Mata said. A total of about $3,800 was seized from the three, who were booked at the Vista jail, he said. The arrests by the sheriff's North County Regional Prostitution/Human Trafficking Task Force were made between 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. Saturday, Mata said. On April 29, five men were arrested in a similar operation.

We stopped to see Scott about three weeks ago and his art studio was closed. Come to find out, Scott had quadruple bypass surgery and is still in the recovery stage . . . so he’s popping meds to stablize himself . . . and taking life a bit more easily. For those who don’t know, Scott Kuhnly is a magnificent artist whose realistic paintings amaze even the most critical eye.

A copy of the draft charter may be found on the City’s website at http://www.escondido.org/ Data/Sites/1/media/PDFs/C C_Proposal.PDF 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 elections, cumulative voting, runoff 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 ‘Local News’ Cont. on Page 8 beach.

I can’t say enough bad things, however, about the waiting room at the Palomar Emergency Room. Ridiculous! An hour or two hour wait to be seen is ‘speedy service,’ even when in excruciating pain. We have waited for up to five hours to be seen. There’s no excuse for this. Something needs to be done about this and it should be a priority item. I witnessed an Escondido police officer escorting a dowdy, frumpy woman, handcuffed, and in no apparent pain, directly into the Emergency Room for treatment . . . this while there was a waiting room full of people . . . at least half of whom had bad, bad pain. The staff tell us . . . “we have to take the more serious patients first,” and that’s understandable. But a handcuffed woman? There has to be a better way.

Once the GI candidates' victory had been certified, they cleaned-up county government: the jail was fixed; newly-elected officials accepted a $5,000 pay limit; Mansfield supporters who resigned, were replaced. The general election on 5 November passed quietly. McMinn Countians, having restored the Rule of Law, returned to their daily lives. Pat Mansfield moved back to Georgia. Paul Cantrell set up an auto dealership in Etowah. "Almost everyone who knew Cantrell in the years after the 'Battle' agree that he was not bitter about what had happened."

We’ve had a chance to review the work of Robroy Fawcett, a patent attorney who lives in Escondido and who is very active in his community. He’s come up with some fascinating, and, to us, eminently fair, recommendations as to district boundaries for consideration by both EUSD (Escondido Union School Distirct) and could well be studied and/or adapted by the Escondido City Council. A lot of Fawcett’s legal work and research benefitting the city of Escondido is done pro-bono . . . because he’s talented . . . has a good mind . . . and cares about his community. Escondido leaders should listen to him and study his ideas. We’re already in support of him.

"Paws in the Park" Raised $110,000 for Animals in Need Everyone at the Escondido Humane Society is thrilled to announce that the recent "Paws in the Park" dog walk raised $110,000, the most ever in the event’s 13-year history, and breaking last year's milestone of $101.630. The rain stayed away for the more than 1,000 attendees and their canine companions who came out to raise funding and awareness for animals in need. Every dollar will help care for the 433 animals currently at the shelter, as well as the thousands more expected to come through the shelter's doors this year. Team Sweet Pea and Jesse was the top fundraising team at $18,268, followed by Team Low Rider ($10,991) and Team Daisy ($1,341).

fice, or the healing of the emotional scars they've carried with them for a lifetime. Top priority is given to senior veterans WWII survivors, along with those other veterans who may be terminally ill. Of all the wars in recent memory, it was WWII that truly threatened our very existence as a nation--and as a culturally diverse, free society. Now, with over one thousand WWII veterans dying each day, time to express our thanks to these brave men and women is running out. HFSD knows that our heroes don't ask for recognition, but they deserve it. Please help to make their dream of visiting their memorial a reality. Your tax-deductible donations can be made online through the secure website at www.honorflightsandiego.org/donate.htm or mailed to Honor Flight San Diego, 9423 Keck Court, San Diego, 92129.

Local Civil Air Patrol Unit Recognized as a National “Quality Cadet Unit”
three Charter Flights for a trip to accommodate over 120 WWII Veterans each trip.
Cadets from the Skyhawks Composite Squadron 47 learned recently that their squadron ranks among the top two percent of the nation’s more than 1,000 Air Force auxiliary units. Civil Air Patrol, the official auxiliary of the U.S. Air Force, is a nonprofit organization with more than 61,000 members nationwide, operating a fleet of 550 aircraft. Earning Civil Air Patrol’s Quality Cadet Unit Award for 2011, Squadron 47 was one of only three squadrons to rate superior scores in all eight categories, such as recruiting and retention, attendance at activities, and progress of the members and their training. The Squadron has 91 members and meets on Camp Pendleton at the Army Reserve Center. They are looking for new Senior Members and cadets interested in Emergency Services, Aerospace Education or the Cadet Program. Cadets can be between the ages of 12 and 18. The Squadron meets every Tuesday night from 6:45 – 9 PM. For more information and directions to their meeting place, visit the Squadron website at www.SQ47.com. For additional information, visit www.gocivilairpatrol.com or www.capvolunteernow.com.
Thanks to the generous support of many, the funds were available for the first charter flight on May 11-13, 2012. Dave Walker and friends pledged matching funds up to $100K, to help make this flight happen. Funds are currently being raised to make a second and third charter flight during the 2012 flying season. Both Qualcomm and Chase Bank have approved HFSD for their employee matching fund programs, and they both will match employee contributions to HFSD. $200,000 is needed to facilitate a Charter Flight in July, and another $200,000 for a Charter Flight in October. Each charter flight will allow HFSD to take more WWII Veterans per trip and help reduce the backlog on the waiting list. There are still over 340 WWII veterans on the waiting list in San Diego County. It costs $2,000 per veteran for the 3-day 2-night trip, including flight, coach transportation for the day in Washington, DC, hotel stay, and all meals.

Mansfield) with the righteous (the GIs). Some critical outsiders, including The New York Times never saw that Cantrell and Mansfield's wholesale election fraud, enforced at gun-point, trampled the Rule of Law; feared citizens' restoring the Rule of Law by armed force. The 79th Congress adjourned on 2 August 1946, when the Battle of Athens ended. However, Representative John Jennings, Jr., from Tennessee decried: McMinn County's sorry situation under Cantrell and Mansfield; the Justice Department's repeated failures to help the McMinn Countians. Jennings was delighted that "...at long last decency and honesty, liberty and law have returned to the fine county of McMinn...". (Congressional Record, House; U.S. Government Printing Office, Washington, D.C., 1946; Appendix, Volume 92, Part 13, p. A4870.)
Peter Parker deserves two names because he is that special. He is a Dutch Shepherd but a small one….He is only 24 pounds. Peter is very gentle with other dogs and his people. Even the puppies don’t deter him....he just rolls on his back and lets them play “hop on pop.” He is about 2 years old at most, well behaved and loves to go hiking, walking, and the beach. Peter Parker has been neutered and microchipped. His microchip registration is included. His vaccines and rabies certificate are all up to date. He comes with a full 4 piece safety equipment set, food for his transition and any favorite toys or bedding he may have found. To get the details on our events to meet Peter or for more information and pictures of our other available pups just visit our website www.forgottenpaws.org, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 949-246-1280.
The Lessons of Athens
Governments alone can brutalize thousands, or millions.
Those who took up arms in Athens, Tennessee: wanted honest elections, a cornerstone of our Constitutional order; had repeatedly tried to get Federal or State election monitors; used armed force so as to minimize harm to the law-breakers; showed little malice to the defeated lawbreakers; restored lawful government.
Since 1915, officials of seven governments "gone bad" have committed genocide, murdering at least 56 million persons, including millions of children. "Gun control" clears the way for genocide by giving governments "gone bad" far greater freedom to commit mass murder.
The Battle of Athens clearly shows: how Americans can and should lawfully use armed force; why the Rule of Law requires unrestricted access to firearms; how civilians with military-type firearms can beat the forces of "law and order." Dictators believe that public order is more important than the Rule of Law. However, Americans reject this idea. Criminals can exploit for selfish ends, the use armed force to restore the Rule of Law. But brutal political repression - as practiced by Cantrell and Mansfield - is lethal to many. An individual criminal can harm a handful of people.
Law-abiding McMinn Countians won the Battle of Athens because they were not hamstrung by "gun control." McMinn Countians showed us when citizens can and should use armed force to support the Rule of Law. We are all in their debt. SOURCE: The Daily PostAthenian, Athens, Tenn., August 21, 1946; Page 1,6.

He's an indoor dog that loves to be part of the family. Keep in mind that he's an active guy who will need to get plenty of exercise. After that, he'll be perfectly happy to lie next to you on the couch for a nice snooze. The adoption fee for Charlie 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.

Abraham Lincoln We have seen the latter part of the above quotation exercised here in McMinn County. We now have the opportunity to see the first part of it carried out. What Lincoln meant was just this: The government of any group of people is in the hands of the people and they must carry on an active part in maintaining their government unless they want to abide by the rule of a few unscrupulous persons who find ways and means of getting the reins of power in governmental offices. If the people as a whole do not maintain a vigilant watch over matters of government, a few people, grasping for power and domination, find it easy to undermine all the principles of democracy.
Terrence is a 2-year-old neutered male bunny, ID 62592. Terrence is a volunteer favorite at the Escondido Humane Society due to his wonderful personality.

A general law city operates within the parameters of California municipal law. The advantage of a general law city is that general state laws have been subjected to judicial scrutiny and tested over the years, so there is relatively little confusion about their application. A charter city is defined by the city's own charter rather than by state, regional or national laws. An advantage of a charter city is that its powers are not restricted to only those outlined in the general state municipal law, so a city can tailor its organization to provide for unique local conditions and needs.

Escondido • Mayor Sam Abed Do You Have Plans For Memorial Day Weekend? Over the years the original meaning and spirit of Memorial Day has faded from the public consciousness. Originally known as “Decoration Day,” Memorial Day is a day of remembering the men and women who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces. You can remember those who paid the price for our freedoms by attending a Memorial Day Remembrance Service at Oak Hill Memorial Park, 2640 Glenridge Road, on Monday, May 28, 2012, at 10:00 a.m. The remembrance is sponsored by the
Escondido Allied Veterans Council. In addition to this solemn observance of Memorial Day, you may also want to consider another event that has become a Memorial Day Weekend tradition in Escondido: the American Heritage Car Show sponsored by the Escondido History Center. This year’s event will be held on Saturday, May 26, 2012, from 9:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. in Grape Day Park in downtown Escondido. Admission to the event is free. The American Heritage Car Show will feature hundreds of domestic and import pre-'74 vintage, classic, muscle and hot rod cars. The event will include a DJ, a pancake breakfast, museum tours, vendors, refreshments, and a raffle.
Rancho Bernardo • Mayor Jerry Sanders I’m pleased to let San Diego residents know that our restored recreation center hours are now in effect. Recently, I announced that the city had a budget surplus for the first time in years, and my first order of business was to put these funds toward restoring our rec center and library hours, among other services. Our 56 rec centers are each open an additional 5 hours a week, and you can look up your local rec center’s hours of operation on
our city website. (http://www.sandiego.gov/parkand-recreation/centers/) For many San Diegans, our recreation centers provide not only a place for exercise, but also for community involvement. As we’ve faced tough financial challenges, our local residents who use our centers have felt the brunt of cutbacks. Keeping our recreation centers open longer represents another step toward our fiscal recovery. The restored library hours go into effect on June 4, when our 35 branch libraries will once again open their doors on Mondays.
Vista • Mayor Judy Ritter Another new hotel will soon be available to serve the Vista community. In June, the Hyatt Place hotel is opening on the corner of Faraday Avenue and S. Melrose Drive in southeast Vista. In 2010, the Marriott Town Place Suites opened for business on S. Melrose Drive and Sycamore Avenue. Both of these hotels are ideally located to serve nearby residential communities and neighboring cities, as well as the local, national, and global companies located in the Vista Business Park.
Over the past few years, the City has been working to recruit these types of amenities for both the residential and business needs of the community. These companies fill a gap for specific goods and services and provide for job creation and diversity. They will generate significant revenues for the city to help sustain important services such as public safety, recreation, and senior and other community services. If you are interested in learning more about the City’s Economic Development programs and opportunities, please contact the City at 760.639.6165.
San Marcos • Mayor Jim Desmond Starting this month, the City of San Marcos and Palomar College will begin airing more San Marcos-specific programming on San Marcos Television (SMTV) as part of a cooperative agreement struck between the two agencies last year. San Marcos TV is a Public Education and Government (PEG) channel that can be seen in San Marcos on Cox Communications Channel 19, Time Warner Cable Channel 24 and AT&T U-verse Channel 99. The agreement allows for Palomar College to air programs produced by their Emmy-award winning tele-
vision department on the city-run cable channel daily from 4 to 10 pm. Programs during this timeslot may include Nature's Cathedral: The Geology of Yosemite, Math in Your World and Se Habla Español. When Palomar College is not airing their programming, the city will air Council meetings, other city informational shows or county programming. The college also provides field coverage for city events like the annual State of the City Address and the biannual Education Forum. The programs can also be viewed online at www.palomar-tv.com and will eventually be available at www.san-marcos.net as well. For more information, please call Communications Officer Jenny Windle at (760) 744-1050, ext. 3169.
Oceanside • Mayor Jim Wood Operation Appreciation Once again, the Oceanside Chamber of Commerce is coordinating the annual Operation Appreciation event that will be held on Saturday, May 19, from 11 AM – 4 PM, at the Oceanside Pier Amphitheater. Each Armed Forces Day, this gathering provides an opportunity to say “Thank You” to all those who make incredible sacrifices for all of us. Drawing nearly 8,000 people each year, this all-day festival is filled with music, a Fun Zone with carnival rides and face painting and lots of delicious food provided by
local restaurants. Even the Mechanized Museum will have land and amphibious vehicles on display at the beach for the public to see. With a valid military ID, active duty personnel and their dependents will receive a wristband which will provide them with access to free carnival rides and great food. All others are able to purchase tickets for the carnival rides and food items are available for purchase. So come and join in the fun and show your appreciation to the brave men and women who fight to keep us free! For more information or to volunteer, contact the Chamber at (760) 722-1534 or visit www.OceansideOperationAppre ciation.com.

Nome and Paul Van Middlesworth thecomputerfactoryltd.com The Computer Factory Customer Support: Part Two Two weeks ago we began a discussion on the decline of post sale CS (customer support) in the PC industry. During most of the 1980s PCs were sold in small retail stores like Egghead and Computer World. Prices and profits were high enough that PC makers and sellers could afford to provide excellent post sales support. In 1988 Packard Bell started selling PCs through mass merchandisers like Price Club and Sears and the other major PC makers soon followed. Prices tumbled and the small stores that once sold and serviced the major brands went belly up. Fierce retail price competition forced significant changes in the PC industry. Many PC makers

went under. Packard Bell, always the price leader couldn’t make a profit. They cheapened their product quality and support to the point where it became a joke. E-Machine, a Korean manufacturer, entered the US market and became the “bottom feeders” PC of choice by out-cheaping Packard Bell. Gateway who couldn’t turn a profit after 2000 saw E-Machine doing well selling cheap imports so they merged with E-machine and laid off 10,000 Gateway employees. Eventually Packard Bell, Gateway and E-machine were bought by ACER which still sells products under those logos in Europe and Asia. The American PC manufacturers that survived, Dell and HP/Compaq, have changed dramatically over the years. A piece at a time they sent their computer functions overseas until they became advertising and marketing agents for Asian products. Hundreds of thousands of good American jobs went to Asia as these American companies found it cheaper to simply buy foreign designed and manufactured PCs with their logos. With customer telephone support relegated to contractors in third world countries and domestic warranty and repair service going to the local low bidder, pathetic customer support was inevitable. At the retail level, PC prices are too low

to support any but the minimum level of post sales support. Users are pretty much on their own. Fortunately the Internet has become a very good resource for identifying and solving PC related problems. Looking for answers on the WWW is usually a lot more productive than talking with a help desk in Manilla or Mumbai. Here at the Computer Factory we walk a very thin line. We encourage customers to call us with their problems because we can usually help define the problem and offer helpful advice. What we can’t do is fix computers over the phone. We can’t allow our techs to spend extended periods of time on the phone
It’s Time for a Part-Time Legislature Unbridled government spending, heavy taxation and overregulation make the timing ripe for returning California to a part-time legislature; and last week I introduced ACA 28, a constitutional amendment to do just that. For 116 years, California operated with a part-time legislature. Today, our state is one of only four in the nation that support full-time legislators and their staff, all receiving full-time salaries and benefits. The four states with full-time legislatures - California, Michigan, New York and Pennsylvania - have enormous budget deficits and unfunded public employee pensions. A part-time legislature could save taxpayers millions of dollars and still represent the people. In just ten years,
walking customers through diagnostic and repair processes for two reasons. First it takes infinitly more time to walk someone through a procedure on the phone than it does to do it. Second, we’ve never figured out a way to get paid for work done over the telephone. We restrict our PC sales to North County because our product support is done face to face with our customers right here in our San Marcos shop. It would be extremely difficult to service one of our PCs in Tucson, especially by phone. So never hesitate to call us with a problem and we’ll always try to be helpful but if you need help from a technician, bring it in. It’s faster and in the long run, cheaper.
California's budget for the legislature has increased by $59 million or nearly a half million dollars per representative. Many citizens argue that with less time in Sacramento, legislators would be forced to prioritize and deal with critical issues such as balancing the budget, streamlining services and purging state agencies of waste. They would also have less time to pass overreaching and jobkilling laws. Gone would be unnecessary bills that encroach on personal freedoms such as bills mandating what type of sheets hotel operators can use, what type of bag retailers can provide and when pet owners must spay or neuter their pet. By setting an example of fiscal responsibility, California's lawmakers could lead the way toward stable economic growth instead of continually looking to voters for tax increases to solve spending problems.

‘Local News’ Cont. from Page 8 San Diego Animal Defense Team Protests Puppy Mill Retailers The San Diego Animal Defense Team, ADT, a grassroots community of local animal advocates, protested in front of the store known as San Diego Puppy on Friday, May 11. It was their second protest there in two weeks. San Diego Puppy has recently expanded from online sales of puppies to selling pups through their San Diego Dog Wash storefront in the Mission Valley area of San Diego. The ADT contends that buying a puppy online or from a pet store is animal abuse. It perpetuates a multi-billion dollar industry that makes money by mass factory farming puppies, including through those licensed by the US Department of Agriculture as well as unlicensed backyard breeders. The group recently celebrated the finish of their last campaign as all three of the targeted puppy mill stores, including Naedeen Puppies in Oceanside, were raided simultaneously on March 27 by the San Diego Humane Society. Over 100 animals, including 57 puppies, were confiscated from the stores and the home of the owner. The owner is being charged with animal abuse and neglect.

‘Revolution!’ Cont. from Page 8 tion now prevailing in McMinn County puts its citizens in the best position of any county in the state and possibly in the nation as to the control and manipulation of its government. We are in just that position if the people as a whole will attend the county-wide mass meetings tomorrow night and participate in the election of the representatives of their respective communities who will serve on the Board of Directors of the Good government League of McMinn County. The people who are elected must have the knowledge that they have the backing of all the people in their community when they go to the various meetings of the Board of Directors and vote on the matters of government that come before that body. The choice is in your hands; 1. Take an active part in your government, as is your duty and privilege as a citizen, or 2. The next time you find that your government has fallen into the hands of unscrupulous politicians just say, "It's my own fault, I had a chance to do something about it but slept through it."

Letters to the Editor Another Point of View (This is actually a letter to Mayor Sam Abed of Escondido; we asked for, and received, permission to reprint it here. It gives another perspective to the recent controversy. Editor) Sam: I want to congratulate and thank you for your conduct of an excellent town hall meeting last Wednesday and for keeping your cool under less than ideal circumstances. I wish I had the power to apologize for the exceptionally boorish citizens who discourteously and disrespectfully attacked you and other public servants during the opportunity you provided to them to talk. These people, by abusing in this manner their right to express their legitimate opinions, embarrass me and are an embarrassment to our city. While I don’t agree with every decision that you and the council make I certainly appreciate the process whereby all have the ability to express themselves within the bounds of civility. I especially appreciate your town hall initiatives—I encourage you to keep up the good work in this regard. And, as painful as it is, you are right to demand that Escondido’s fiscal house be put in order. As we swallow the bitter but necessary pills that will make our city well we must continue to stimulate growth and civic improvement through business-friendly policies. Thanks for your leadership as we move in that direction. /s/A.G. (name withheld by request) Escondido, CA.

I worked for the Los Angeles Police Department from 1967 to 1995 (28 years), 25 of those years as a motorcycle officer.

“I went to work for a termite company,” he says. “I’d crawl under houses and other buildings, looking for termites . . . no matter if it was blazing hot, cold, dry or wet, we had to find those rascals and exterminate them. I decided a guy had to be nuts to stay in this business.” Fifty two years later he was still in that “nutty” business. He had formed the W. A. Stone Company, a highly respected and very successful pest control company. He decided to slow down and in 2008 he turned the business over to his daughter, Debbie Tammariello and her husband. They continue to operate the business and carry on the successful tradition. In time, however, W A Stone got restless. He opened a totally different business called San Diego Rotobrush, which serves North County as well as Lakeside and Santee, where the offices are located. Basically, this company cleans air ducts in mobile homes, residences, and commercial buildings. Their machines will both clean and disinfect and sanitize the air ducts. It kills bacteria and dust mites. They also will provide you with electostatic filters for $89. You just wash them every two months and they can fit any unit. Another potential hazardous problem is that of dryer vents. His company will clean dryer vents for $85, thus cutting way back on the potential for fire. When he’s not looking after the business of San Diego Rotobrush he restores classic cars and enjoys showing them. He’s a regular participant in Escondido’s Cruisin’ Grand.
‘Local News’ Cont. from Page 13 Hold onto your Dog! Step onto the Log! Rattlesnake Season is Here! Spring brings out Rattlesnakes following winter hibernation. Rancho Coastal Humane Society (RCHS) is reminding pets (and their people) that they can avoid snakebite by following a few simple rules. "Sunset is when you're most likely to encounter a rattlesnake," according to RCHS spokesman John Van Zante. "People need footwear that gives protection. Keep your dog on a leash and on a well-used trail. And carry a stick. Hitting the bushes can scare snakes away." Other basic rules/tips can save pets and their people: • Don't go places where there are likely to be snakes • Don't put your paws, hands or feet where you can't see (like under a log or rock) • Look before you leap. Step on a rock or log instead of jumping over it • Take your cell phone for emergency (not to talk or text while you hike) • If you stop to rest, look before you sit • Be careful around water. Snakes can swim and they look like sticks in the water. • If you see a snake...LEAVE IT ALONE! Van Zante says that a tlesnake's strike distance be one third to one half length of its body and faster than a human eye see.
ratcan the it's can
What should you do if you or your pet are bitten by a rattler? "Probably most difficult, try to remain calm. If you panic or run, that spreads the venom faster. And get to a doctor ASAP. Try to remember what the snake looks like. Your veterinarian or Emergency Room will want to know how big, what color, shape of head, and anything else you can tell them.

Dottie Coleman Celebrated Her 100th Birthday in Style! Dottie Coleman, a 15-year resident of Lake San Marcos, turned 100 recently. She still drives, surfs the Internet, e-mails, is an accomplished pianist and still plays, does her own banking and bill paying, lives independently in her own home, and is sharp as a tack. She has had a colorful and interesting 100 years of life, including driving across the United States in 1933 in a Model A Ford with her girlfriend! Here's her story. "It’s been an amazing 100 year journey, celebrated in fine style on March 25 at the Brigantine Restaurant in Escondido. It was lovely to be surrounded by 85 of my favorite people, including the Ring Dottie as a young woman Bearer from my 1934 wedding who drove in from Colorado! Music from my generation was played throughout the afternoon and a slide show with musical accompaniment was shown with 180 photos taken during my life time – childhood in the country setting of my birthplace, family gatherings over the years, travels, and special events.
Dottie at the Taj Mahal
My grandson, Dr. Steven Cornford, an atomic physicist with the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, composed a song for me which he sang and played on his guitar. My daughter, Patricia, read a delightful poem that she wrote, highlighting my years from birth to the present time. Friends spoke about their special memories of me over the years which brought tears to my eyes. The day was spectacularly significant and a memory I will always treasure. I was born and grew up in a loving family in a small farming community in the southeastern corner of Pennsylvania. My interest in music began at an early age. I played the organ in church at the age of 8 and music was always an important part of my life. After graduating from high school, I attended Maryland State Normal School in Baltimore and became a teacher. My first teaching assignment was at an Army post in Edgewood, Maryland.
Dottie today . . .
As a small town girl, I was eager to see the world, and my first big travel experience was a trip to California in 1933. Another teacher, her brother and I traveled in a Model A Ford Coupe (complete with rumble seat!) and covered over 6000 miles! We visited the World’s Fair in Chicago and saw everything we could during our six-week cross country adventure. After my marriage to Lester Coleman in 1934, I settled into domesticity, moving to Baltimore and continuing to teach. My only child, a daughter, Patricia, was born in 1935. We lived near our families, spent our summers at a cottage on the Chesapeake Bay and life was good. The war came along and changed things. My husband was called to service with the US Navy, serving in North Africa. Upon his return, life picked up where it had left off but in 1951 he was re-called to Active Duty with the Army. His assignment to Vienna, Austria, was a life changing experience. Living in a foreign country was interesting and eventful, presenting me with more wonderful travel experiences. I sailed on a Freighter on a 30-day circuit through the Mediterranean stopping at ports which included Rhodes, Crete, Turkey, and Egypt. I was afforded the opportunity of visiting many European countries by car and rail, skiing in Germany, Austria and Switzerland, seeing the tulips bloom in springtime in Holland, and much more. I reveled in the opportunity to study music with a concert pianist and was able to enrich my passion for classical music. Back to United States to Fort Ord where I taught soldiers to prepare them to take the GED exam. My husband was released from the Army and we began life as civilians on the beautiful Monterey Peninsula. During the next decade, I lived in San Luis Obispo and Granada Hills, California, and then on to Fairhope, Alabama, finally settling in Naples, Florida. I studied painting, became an active member of the DAR, played golf, and enjoyed life in a retirement community. With my husband in declining health, I moved to San Marcos to be near my daughter, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, and after his death he was laid to rest with full military honors at Arlington National Cemetery. I re-invented myself once again and began writing stories, becoming enamored with putting my thoughts on paper. I published 17 stories in Good Old Days Magazine and shared my travel experiences in the International Senior Traveler Magazine. I again pursued my love of travel, attending my 75 high school reunion in Pennsylvania. I have visited Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, India, Nepal, South Africa, Zimbabwe, Botswana, and Alaska. One of my greatest moments was seeing the Taj Mahal in all it’s glory and flying along the 29,028 foot summit of Mt. Everest from the cockpit of a small plane. I have continued to study music with Dr. Peter Gach at Palomar College, participate in concerts with the Presto Group (a group of talented and dedicated pianists who meet monthly to play for each other) and continue to play the piano for my own enjoyment. I attend as many musical events as I can. I am happy, healthy and feel blessed for the full life I have lived and continue to live! There have been many changes in the world since 1912! I was 10 days old when the Titanic went down! I enjoy e-mailing friends, driving myself where I need to go, and living independently in my own home in Panorama in Lake San Marcos. I thank my family and special friends for enhancing my life journey and making is such a marvelous adventure. I have loved my life and it has loved me right back!" With her busy schedule and positive attitude, we'll be celebrating many more of Dottie's birthdays. Happy Birthday, Dottie Coleman! Smiling Dave Geary . . . owner of Dave’s Computer Repair and Sales, 112 N. Kalmia, Escondido says . . . “Get ‘em while they’re hot! This Sunday at the Escondido Street Fair . . .

CCC Veterans Crews Complete Training; Working on Fire Reduction Efforts Fifty military veterans, members of four all-veterans California Conservation Corps crews, are now working in California national forests on fuel reduction and fire prevention efforts. The veterans, based with the CCC in Auburn, Lake Tahoe, San Bernardino and San Diego, recently completed a week-long training under the direction of the U.S. Forest Service. The CCC/ USFS partnership is aimed at easing the veterans' transition from military service to the civilian workforce and can lead to potential forestry and firefighting jobs through the Forest Service's Wildland Fire Apprenticeship Program. Funding for the crews is provided by the Forest Service through the CCC/USFS partnership as well as from the operating budget of the California State Assembly through the leadership of Speaker John A. Pérez. "I am very proud the Assembly was able to help make the recent training a success by providing funds to the Conservation Corps through cutting our own budget," said Speaker Pérez. "These soldiers, who are willing to risk their lives for our country, deserve to have every opportunity to find a quality, decent job that lets them provide for their family, and this program does exactly that." The CCC is still recruiting veterans for additional crew openings. Those interested may contact the Corps at 1800-952-JOBS or contact Tina Ratcliff by phone at (916) 341-
3123 or e-mail email@example.com.
How To Find a “Forever Home” for a Pup
The CCC hired its first three veterans crews in 2011. Many of the participants have been hired by land management agencies such as the U.S. Forest Service, the National Park Service and California State Parks.
First, you find a soft-hearted president of a civic or service club:
The California Conservation Corps is a state agency hiring young men and women for a year of natural resource work and emergency response. Since it was established in 1976 by Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr., more than 115,000 young people have been a part of the program. District Elections for Escondido? Escondido City Council members said Monday that they want to explore switching to elections based on geographic districts, runoffs or, possibly, cumulative voting. The willingness to consider alternative election procedures is a substantial shift for the council majority, which has repeatedly vowed to fight a lawsuit filed in December on behalf of five Latino residents that demanded election by districts. Mayor Sam Abed has long argued that district elections would further polarize the city, and Council member Waldron said she was particularly opposed to drawing districts based on ethnicity. Waldron, however, said it was important for council members to consider alternative election procedures before they decide what to include in a charter city proposal scheduled for a public vote in November. She believes making election districts in a charter would be the most efficient way for Escondido to make the switch.

Let Evelyn hold the pup.
Waldron said she wanted to hear the pro and con arguments about the issue. "Maybe we could draw the districts based on the city's geography or economic demographics. I'd like to see what other cities have done." Councilwoman Olga Diaz has praised election districts, which both Escondido school

‘Local News’ Cont. from Page 16 districts adopted earlier this year. She said Monday that districts would allow council members to become experts about the particular area they represent, and would also make campaigns less costly by allowing candidates to focus on a smaller number of voters. Robroy Fawcett, an Escondido patent attorney, has submitted proposed district election boundaries to the EUSD and, he suggests, these same boundaries could be considered for city election districts, if desired. Councilman Mike Morasco has expressed tentative support for cumulative voting, which allows voters in minority groups to concentrate their power. Jim Finberg, a San Francisco attorney who filed the lawsuit, said Monday that he'd be willing to put the litigation on hold until November if the council included election districts in the proposed charter. If voters approve the charter in November, Finberg said the lawsuit would go away as long as the plaintiffs were given an opportunity to review how the new districts were drawn. If voters reject the charter, Finberg said he would revive the lawsuit. Jeff Epp, the city attorney, agreed Monday with Finberg that district elections would be Escondido's best approach regarding the lawsuit, which could cost the city as much as $3 million based on similar litigation in other parts of the state. "The most well-tried approach would be districts," Epp said. Waldron said voting districts were among several topics she wanted council members to explore May 23 before finalizing the proposed charter. She said the others include term limits, giving the city more power to lease its buildings to the private sector, requiring a balanced budget each year and requiring photo identification to vote in city elections.
