Volume 43- No. 44

By Frank Lorey III The discovery of gold at Sutter’s Mill in 1848 started the great gold rush to California. The account that drew national and worldwide notice was a small two-inch item at the bottom of the front page of the March 15, 1848, issue of the “Californian,” published in San Francisco. The article was attributed to B.R. Buckelew, and mentioned quantities of gold just being “gathered.”

Ever since, the search for gold has been popular and even today is a hobby or more for many people. Modern technology has developed specialized equipment costing thousand of dollars for the more serious searchers. At first the gold rush did not draw miners—they were simply “Argonauts”—gold seekers. Further stories that elaborated on James Marshall’s account told that he just picked up the original nugget, leading to the belief that all you had to do was get to

California and start picking up the gold, as it must just be lying everywhere (at least in the foothills of the Sierra’s). It was supposed to be “easy pickin’s.” The first notice gave more than just an impression that gold was found all over the state, saying “Gold has been found in almost every part of the country.” While it is true that gold had been found in several locations in the state as early as the 1820’s, by the date of the March article very few loca-

tions had actually been found in the Mother Lode country. Those that had were only a few miles at most from the vicinity of Coloma, the new town that sprang up at the site of Sutter’s Mill. The first gold seekers were illequipped, arriving with very few supplies, and little in the way of tools and equipment that would be needed to really recover the placer gold. This led to a second “gold rush”—shopkeepers who found they could easily make more each day providing sup-

Early letters sent back east from the mines bear out the truth. One would-be miner gave the advice, “if he wants to lead a dog’s life to come, but…it is a mighty hard country.” Another letter stated (with typically unique spelling), “the digings is not so good as they are cract up to be.” Many of the original methods used to recover gold are still used today. Gold panning is still popular, and sluice boxes, dry rockers, and small dredges are used in one form or another. Many people now use metal detectors, and some are specifically designed to find nuggets. Here is a look at the methods that developed in California's gold fields. Some of the first gold seekers to arrive at the scene were miners from Mexico and Chile, since they had a shorter trip by sea than those comThe Fearless British Cartoonists Have a Field Day With President Obama

ing from the eastern United States. They brought a shallow cone-shaped pan called a “batea” that was used to wash the gold-bearing gravels. Soon the typical gold pan as we know it started into use. It was usually 15 to 18 inches in diameter.

A skilled “panner” could wash up to a cubic yard of material in a typical 10-hour work day. The pan would be filled about ¾ full, submerged, and larger rocks and chunks of clay and soil would be Editor’s Note: Since this is the last issue of The Paper before the election . . . we decided to import some cartoons from Britain that tweaks our administration.

removed or broken up. It would then be moved in a circular motion, which would concentrate the heavier materials by allowing the lighter materials to be washed away. When the pan was down to basically concentrates, all

remaining pebbles and pieces of gravel would be examined and removed. The presence of “black sand” was always a good sign, and it could be removed when dry by use of a magnet. What was left would

be combined with mercury, which was then heated or roasted to burn off the mercury, leaving a fairly concentrated form of gold. Back in those days they did not know about the health hazards associated with mercury vapors! The eventual use of retorts, which trapped the mercury for further use, made the process much safer. The work was hard—spending almost all the daylight hours bent over and stooping near a stream, often standing in the cold waters. It was quickly discovered that much of the gold was found in deeper channels, and it frequently had to be recovered from crevices in the bedrock. The average miner made about 50¢ to $1.00 per day, and when shovels and picks were going for $50 each, many miners quickly became discouraged. Most could not afford to return home, so many signed on as labor for newly-forming mining companies. One of the first improve‘Gold’’ Cont. on Page 3 Those Cheatin’ Republicans

‘Gold’’ Cont. from Page 2 ments in placer mining technology was the “Long Tom.” It was an inclined trough, usually sloped at 1 inch per foot of length. Riffles on the bottom portion trapped the gold. A major limitation to its use was that it required a lot of water flowing through to properly wash the gravels. The Long Tom was usually a two-man operation. One would shovel the material in, while the other would remove larger rock and chunks of rough material. The concentrates would be removed from the riffles once or twice per day and panned. The big advantage was that work capacity was greatly increased, hence the amount of gold potentially recovered increased. The two-man operation could work about 8-10 cubic yards of material in the typical day. Gold was not always located where an abundance of water existed, which led to a further improvement. The “Rocker” needed far less water than a Long Tom. It was about 2-5 feet long, and about 1-2 feet wide. Screens were used to sort out the material, which was then concentrated on riffles and an apron which could be constructed out of such items as old blankets, cowhide, or burlap. Water was poured over the materials and the machine was vigorously rocked for several minutes. It was not as efficient as the Long Tom, but lack of water dictated its use. As the water got muddy, some of the fine gold would be lost. It became a science as to how much water was needed—too much and gold would be washed away, too little and the gold would not settle. The rocker was also usually a two-man operation, and 3-5 cubic yards of material could be processed in the usual 10hour day. As with the Long Tom, the concentrates were finally panned out. The Long Tom also led to the idea for the “Sluice Box,” a large trough usually about twelve feet long and filled with riffles. It would be

sloped anywhere from 5-18 inches per the twelve feet, depending on the water supply. The Sluice Box needed a lot of water to operate. All material would be dumped in at the head and allowed to pass through, the idea being that the courser materials would grind up and clean the finer materials. It took at least 20 cubic feet of water to wash one cubic foot of material, often much more. A team of just a few men could work a large amount of material each day, since the riffles were only cleaned out and panned at the end of the day. The use of Sluice Boxes led to the hydraulic mining industry in California. One operation could run several Sluice Boxes if enough water and material was available for use. The first hydraulic operation started in 1852 at American Hill, near Nevada City in Nevada County. Large “Monitor” nozzles, shaped like cannons, shot water at hillsides hundred of feet away. The soil, silt, gravel and debris were channeled to reach the Sluice Boxes, where the gold was concentrated. The powerful nozzles could easily wash away whole hillsides, silting dams and farmland downstream. The hydraulic mining industry practices led to some of the first environmental laws in California. The industry had reached its peak in the early 1880’s, and a lawsuit was filed—“Woodruff vs. North Bloomfield Gravel Mining Co.”. The case set legal precedence, and the decision against the mining company by Judge Lorenzo Sawyer became known as the “Sawyer Decision.” Companies were prohibited from dumping their debris, first into the Sacramento and San Joaquin Rivers, and then including all of their tributaries. The decision eventually applied to all of the Mother Lode country. Some hydraulic mining companies constructed dams to control the silting, but the end of the industry was in sight. A second decision in 1893, known as the “Caminetti Act,” required the hydraulic companies to be licensed, and

hence assessed. All were required to build dams. Most went completely out of business. One of the largest operations is preserved as a State Park—Malakoff Diggins State Historical Park, near Nevada City. A smaller version of the Sluice Box appeared—the “Dip Box.” It was used where the water supply was an issue, or where the quantity of gold was much less. It had a screen and then apron material like a Rocker, usually old carpet, burlap, cowhide, or canvas. The Dip Box was set at a steep angle, and could only work smaller sand and gravel material as some water had to be poured over it. Most of the gold would lodge in the screen material, but sometimes riffles were set further down to catch any missed gold.

A 110 oz. “Cleanup” - at today’s prices, about $187,759 A further refinement was the “Dry Washer,” a type of Rocker used in areas where water was a major problem. It was set at a pretty steep angle, and material would be loaded into the hopper. The machine would be cranked or rocked vigorously, the material passing through screens. An air bellows below would blow off the lighter particles from the riffles, leaving the heavier concentrates. The Dry Rocker allowed a two-man crew to work about a cubic yard of material per day, but the later addition of gas-powered engines to crank the washer turned the operation into a one-man venture. Power Dry Washers could work almost a cubic yard of material per hour! Another

recovery

method that dated from the early days was the use of an “arrastram,” usually a mulepowered dry mill. The mule would drag large stones attached to chains around a rock-lined circular trough. The trough had channels spaced every few feet, and also around the perimeter. Raw material loaded into the arrastra would be pulverized into finer material by the large grinding rocks, freeing the fine gold which would then be collected and panned out. The end of the hydraulic mining era led to the final improvement in technology—the use of huge gold dredges starting in 1898. Early efforts to try this method started in the early 1850’s without any success, but a large type of dredge invented in New Zealand brought promise to the lower stretches of the goldbearing rivers. The first large operations were on the Feather River near Oroville, by the Hammon & Couch Company. They modified the original dredge to such a degree that they were considered a new type—the “California Gold Mining Dredge.” Soon numerous dredges appeared on the American River near Folsom, the Yuba River near Hammonton, the Tuolumne River near LaGrange, and the Merced River near Snelling.

The slow-moving dredges carved channels that may still be seen today in many places in Northern and Central California from Oroville down to Merced. Operations lasted until 1968, when the giant Yuba No. 21 dredge was shut down. Gold has never been a major industry in California ever since, but it is still there for the taking! Estimates place California’s total gold production at about 120 million ounces, and there are still a lot of ounces out there.


Page 4 - November 1, 2012 Candidate for Escondido City Treasurer Has Misleading Statements The Paper received a salary study from Wally Gutierrez, of Escondido. Gutierrez is a frequent critic of the Escondido City Council and city administrators. The study appears to show that present Escondido City Treasurer and candidate for re-election, Kenneth Hugins, is drawing what Gutierrez says is “full time pay for parttime work,”and d wonders how Hugins justifies his salary.

Escondido and ACLU Reach Agreement on Checkpoint Protests Escondido City Manager Clay Phillips has announced that an agreement has been reached with the ACLU regarding the public’s expression of their First Amendment Rights to object or support daytime and nighttime checkpoints. Under the agreement the operational area of daytime checkpoints will not include any portion of a public sidewalk normally accessible to pedestrians, unless the checkpoint is conducted in a location where it is necessary to close a portion of sidewalk to create a distance of 15 feet between the public and the officers conducting the screening. Night time checkpoints that require additional equipment, such as generators and lights, may involve the closure of side-

walks as part of the operational area. The agreement allows the Escondido Police Department (EPD) to continue controlling and closing areas normally open to the public in the event of a police investigation, pursuit, or other emergency or exigent circumstances that occur during the course of a traffic checkpoint. The agreement also allows EPD to continue having the ability to conduct traffic safety checkpoints, both during the day and at night. Nothing in the agreement prohibits any police officer from making a lawful and constitutional stop or arrest. The agreement further states that if EPD allows members of the press to enter an operational area the individual plaintiffs must be provided equivalent access for a tour, but such access is limited to one time per location and will not exceed 15 minutes per tour. The City has agreed to reimburse ACLU attorney fees of $7,300. Subscribe to The Paper!

One would think you could draw some inspiration and confidence from the French who successfully and safely generate over 76% of their electric power from nuclear generators. And while the U.S. generates a smaller percentage of it's total from nuclear, its total power generation from nuclear exceeds that of France. Some credence might also be attached to the highly successful U.S. Navy nuclear program, where ships of many types have operated successfully for decades utilizing nuclear power. One might also work up a little confidence knowing that U.S. commercial nuclear power plants have operated for over forty years without the loss of a single human life from any reactor related cause. Claudia Aragon's article leads one to believe that the nuclear power industry is largely staffed by ignorant, dishonest and careless individuals who knowingly take shortcuts in their operations, at the risk and safety of us all. This may be true in whatever industry or enterprise Ms. Aragon represents, but it is totally wrong to suggest it applies to the U.S. nuclear power industry, which maintains the best

safety record among all fueled power generation technologies in use. Ms. Aragon's little "WHAT IF" game follows decades of exhaustive study of many, many more "what if's" by highly qualified nuclear scientists and engineers. These evaluations are never ending and are regularly upgraded to reflect nuclear power experience around the world. She lists nuclear units that are shut down, failing to distinguish for all units on the list which outages are due to plant failures and which are routinely scheduled outages for maintenance or refueling, leaving us to believe that all outages are due to plant failures. Nor is it pointed out that any and all failures were safely managed through automatic shutdown or by operator response to alarms. This article and the litany of negatives it postulates about the safety of nuclear power can only frighten the population in-general, adding fuel to the arguments of those who out of such fear, ignorance, and/ or anti-U.S. sentiments would crush our nuclear power industry and deprive us of our best hope for a clean, energy independent future. The coup-de-grace of your presentation of Ms Aragon's article in "The Paper" is that eye-catching picture of a nuclear bomb explosion at the

In 1988 the drug company Allergan acquired the rights to distribute Scott’s botulinum toxin and shortly thereafter changed its name to “Botox.” Since then, Botox has proven to be useful in several areas including treatment for frequent urination, reduction or removal of brow wrinkles (1992), excessive sweating, frown lines, etc. With the new millennium, FDA approvals continued to roll in. In 2002 Botox Cosmetic (the frownline fixer) got it’s official government go-ahead for cosmetic treatments and its use has exploded since then. The opportunity to still “look young” as the baby boomers reach retirement age was and still is, overwhelming and, not surprisingly, the response to this “serum of youth” has become huge world-wide! Botox has now become a new method of treatment in dentistry. People with overactive saliva

glands producing copious amounts of saliva can be injected and brought under control. Individuals with jaw joint pain, typically called Temporal Mandibular Dysfunction (TMD) often times get relief through intramuscular injections. TMD can also be associated with migraine headaches, and either or both can be treated with Botox treatments with and sometimes without oral appliances. Another use is in patients who show too much of their upper gums because of too much tension pulling up on their upper lip. Two small injections of Botox can control this anomaly as well. As time progresses it appears that Botox will continue to be used in ways that help alleviate not only the “look of old age,” but contribute to remedy medical and dental problems we run into as individuals and as a society. It seems that, with the help of science, we truly can make a purse out of a sows ear!

Page 10 - November 1, 2012 ‘Letter to the Editor’ Cont. from Page 7 top of the front page. I'm not sure what this has to do with an article about nuclear power plants since, as most of us know, nuclear power plants can't blow up like nuclear bombs under any circumstance. I guess you intended the photo to remind us of the potential consequences of dealing with middle eastern politicians in our pursuit of oil. /s/Terry E. Nuclear Engineer Lake San Marcos, CA.

And More Reaction . . . Dear Mr. Davis, The recent article "Meltdown" left me wondering if it should have been published as "letters to the editor" instead, or not published at all. 1. Why would The Paper publish front page report on the state of nuclear energy, call it "Meltdown," and illustrate it with a picture of a mushroom cloud? 2. The author personalized this "report" with first person emotions such as "I begun to wonder and worry," "I was shocked to learn," "disturbing trend I noticed." 3. Referring to the Fukushima disaster, the author states: "In a frightening revelation it was dis-

‘Man About Town’ Cont. from Page 4ya “TurboCharged.” Today’s covers story about gold mining takes me back to a story we did about 10 years ago involving a young auto mechanic who panned for gold when not working. He invited us to join him up near Julian where he was panning on Saturday morning. Evelyn stayed in the car and read while I clambered down a steep hill, into a remote canyon, where I found our mechanic pal, busily engaged in panning for gold. I got some pictures, interviewed him, drank in the lovely scenery, and then proceeded back up the lengthy trail, up the steep canyon with twists and turns, and turns and twists, and “where the hell am I?” The trail had narrowed and I wound up on hands and knees in a heavy thicket. I was close to the road, I could hear the traffic . . . but it took me a good 45 minutes to finally reach the road and our car. Evelyn, who had been reading, didn’t miss me. Not

closed the three reactors were forty years past their original shut down dates." Since the first reactor at Fukushima was started in 1971, 41 years ago, how is this possible? 4. The author states: "the original plant, San Onofre 1, was built in 1968 and retired in 1992. The two current reactors were built in the 1980's." I take this to mean that nuclear power generation was at San Onofre continuously, and trouble-free since 1968. I was driving past it since 1971. Why is San Onofre the bad boy now? 5. Distortions - the author isolates 23 nuclear power plants that are "down," and then she individually lists status of each one of them down. I get the message! 6. In the "Just plain weird" department: a) "As the rods cool, steam is created supplying the 1.4 million southern California households with electrical power." Isn't there some missing link? b) "I noticed when I looked at the site map for the reactors they were almost always built next to a water source, albeit a river or the ocean." What a gem. 7. I do not get "shocked" to read that some system detected anomaly and shut something else off, or turned something else on. On the contrary, I like it! It assures me that the engineers who designed it were aware of the potential problem and had developed controlled response to it.

Escondido Backyard Citrus Threatened by Devastating Disease

M a j o r improvements around San Marcos shopping center to open just in time

In March 2012, Huanglongbing (HLB), a plant disease considered a death sentence for California citrus, was discovered in Los Angeles, putting homeowners on high alert. While not harmful to humans or pets, once a citrus tree is infected with HLB, there is no cure and it will die. The disease can be spread by a pest called the Asian citrus psyllid, and the pest has been found near the city of Escondido. The best way to protect citrus trees from the disease is to control the psyllid population. Help protect your backyard citrus trees by: • Inspecting citrus trees for signs of the pest and disease each month or whenever watering, spraying, pruning or

tending trees. • Calling the California Department of Food & Agriculture hotline at 1-800-491-1899 if any suspicious pests or symptoms of HLB are found. • Not bringing any plant material into California from other states or countries and not moving citrus plants out of quarantined areas, because they might be carrying psyllids or be infected with HLB. • Only buying citrus trees from reputable, licensed California nurseries. • Drying or double bagging plant clippings before placing in green waste recycle bins to avoid moving psyllids and HLB-infected plant material. • Cooperating with agriculture officials on detection and suppression efforts of the Asian citrus psyllid and HLB. For more information and to find out what to look for, visit www.CaliforniaCitrusThreat.org.

Rancho Bernardo • Mayor Jerry Sanders As the result of financial reforms that have saved tens of millions of dollars and a slight increase in tax revenues, I announced last week that the city will once again expand library hours, beginning next month. While other cities are filing for bankruptcy or facing multi-million dollar deficits, San Diego is on strong financial ground. Along with additional hours at recreation centers, and more funding for street repairs, our residents are starting to see the benefits of the progress we’ve made over the last few years. Earlier this year, I added 5 hours to

all 35 of the city’s branch libraries. Beginning next month, library hours will be expanded again at all branch libraries as well as the Central Library Downtown. Beginning November 3, the Central Library will add Saturday hours from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Beginning November 4, we will add Sunday hours, from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. to four of our branch libraries: Logan Heights Mira Mesa Rancho Bernardo Valencia Park/Malcolm X More library hours will be added by the end of the year, keeping all branches open for a full day on

Mondays.

Vista • Mayor Judy Ritter Did you know the Gloria E. McClellan senior Center offers “one stop shopping” for area seniors? The center provides scheduled activities and services and includes classrooms, an auditorium, game and dining rooms, and a social service office. The center’s programs include the popular service “Out and About” which provides transportation for senior and disabled Vista residents. Eligible adults receive door-to-door transportation assistance for shopping, medical appointments, to and from the senior center, and other trip excursions. If you do not need this service, but have a few extra hours to spare each week, please consider

becoming a volunteer driver. The Senior Center also provides monthly special events such as Oktoberfest, a Thanksgiving feast, and a Christmas holiday and New Year’s celebration. Live entertainment is also provided during lunch in the Senior Center. The gift of a longer life means more time to travel, time to learn new skills, or even the opportunity to look into new careers, or to give back to the community. Whether you need to access information, locate services, need transportation, or would like to volunteer - the Senior Center can help.

for holiday season!

San Marcos motorists, residents, businesses and visitors can expect improved traffic flow and commute times as five major roadway improvements surrounding Nordahl Roadis scheduled for completion by the end of October and open just in time for the 2012 holiday season. For starters, the Nordahl Road Bridge and ramp improvements will be completed to increase overall vehicle capacity and accommodate future widening of the SR 78. Other

projects coming to fruition include enhancements to the northeast corner of Nordahl and Montiel Road roads, improvements at Nordahl and Montiel intersections, work on the Nordahl Marketplace parking lot and construction at the neighboring McDonald’s. Expect the SR 78 eastbound auxiliary lanes to be completed in the Spring of 2013 to help open up the area during peak commute times. The City of San Marcos initiated a joint effort with the City of Escondido, Caltrans, SANDAG, utility agencies and private property owners, to fix the traffic snarl. Overall, these roadway improvements support the city’s goal of ensuring the safe and efficient flow of traffic on city streets through strategic capital improvement programs.

Late Sunday, the day before our Chargers heartbreaking Monday night loss to the Broncos, Nome and I were driving back to San Marcos from Borrego Springs. We reached Julian just after dark and decided to stop for dinner at historic Bailey’s Barbecue and Tavern. The cold wind blew curtains of rain down Julian’s dark, empty streets. Inside, Bailey’s was warm and filled with the savory aromas of wood smoke and roasting meat. We took a table near the bar. Nome ordered the wood smoked chicken-pot-pie and I the full rack of baby back ribs. We sat nursing our after dinner drinks idly listening to two men at the bar loudly lamenting the Padre’s dismal season but enthusing over the Chargers opportunity to take a two game lead in the AFC West with a smack-down of the Broncos on Monday Night Football. A dark, well dressed man sat alone at the bar apparently listening to the conversation. He paid his bar tab and, on the way out,

Let’s Teach Students about America Last week, I visited with a Mission Hills High School government class and discussed policy and public service with more than 100 high school seniors. The students were knowledgeable and eager to understand the current political environment. We discussed concepts of spending, taxes, and prioritizing government services, the students realized how differing viewpoints impact policy formation. Overall, the students’ ability to engage demonstrated that their class curriculum encouraged above average civic knowledge. Unfortunately, these students are not typical. A significant number of high school seniors score below average on civics exams, and few can name our branches of government or

“Yes,” said the dark man, “and it’s not just the Chargers, the Padres, USD, UCSD and San Diego State, they will all break your heart. It cannot be changed, it is the curse.” He continued toward the door. The first man yelled after him “That’s bull crap man, there is no such thing as a curse.” “You think not?” he said sadly “Wait until Monday night.” And he stepped out into the night. “Who is that guy and what’s this curse talk,” asked the first man looking at Amanda, the bartender. Amanda sighed heavily, “It’s a long, sad story and a bit spooky. Are you sure you want to hear it?” The first man nodded and Nome and I moved up to the bar. The other couple in the tavern left their table and took seats at the bar. We all sat in the dim light waiting as Amanda began. “In 1929 San Diego State was negotiating to buy land on Montezuma Mesa for their new campus. An Indian clan living on Vulcan Mountain owned the property that SDSU wanted for their athletic fields. The Indians agreed to sell the property with the stipulation that the school would supply basketball, baseball and football equipment for the clan’s reservation school and offer an athletic scholarship

for a student of the clan’s choosing. In 1931 tribal elder Mountain Bear’s son received that four- year scholarship as a baseball pitcher. As the years passed the school honored the scholarship but the coach never played the lad. In the boy’s senior year Mountain Bear complained to the University President who pressured the baseball coach into promising to play Mountain Bear’s son in the final game of the season. The big day arrived and the entire Vulcan Mountain clan came to the playing fields on Montezuma Mesa to see Mountain Bear’s son pitch for the Aztecs. It was a tight game with the conference championship at stake, the tension grew among the clan members as Mountain Bear’s son continued to sit on the bench. In the bottom of the eighth inning, with the score tied at one all, Coach sent Mountain Bear’s son to warm up in the bull-pen along with his ace reliever, Wally Mc Comb. The excitement grew as Coach signaled the bullpen for a ninth inning relief pitcher. But it was McComb who walked to the mound. He was tagged for a two-out solo home run and the Aztecs failed to score in the bottom of the ninth. Game over. Mountain Bear’s son was nowhere to be found on the field after the game. When the team went back to the locker room they found Mountain Bear’s son’s lifeless body hanging in the shower.” At that moment there was a flash of lightning followed immediately by a crash of thunder that shook the building. The lights in the bar dimmed and then brightened. The room suddenly seemed to grow cold. Amanda shivered. “What happened then?” asked the first man nervously. “The band took Mountain Bear’s son home to Vulcan Mountain that night and buried him

Your Vote Matters

With Election Day fast approaching, I am reminded of Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address, where he resolved that those who gave their lives for freedom did not die in vain. He said, a “government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the Our schools should prioritize civic education to ensure grad- earth.”

Senator Mark Wyland represents the people of the 38th Senate District, which includes San Diego (Rancho Bernardo, 4S Ranch, Rancho Penasquitos, Carmel Valley) and Solana Beach, Encinitas, Carlsbad, Rancho Santa Fe, San Marcos, Escondido, Vista the south Orange County cities of San Clemente and San Juan Capistrano.

The second man said, “That would mean that we could never win a World Series or Super Bowl and that none of our universities could ever win a national championship” Amanda nodded, “ That is true but it only as it applies to football, basketball and baseball.” “So who is the dark man?” asked the first man. “He is the great-great-great grandson of Mountain Bear.” Said Amanda “You can’t really believe in that curse crap Amanda?” snorted the first man. Amanda leaned forward “Well, you explain it. None of our teams have ever won any of those championships, the Padre’s have the worst all time won/lost record of any major league team,” said Amanda. “Besides, it doesn’t matter what I think, he believes it and he puts his money where his mouth is.” “He bets against our teams?” Asked the second man incredulously. “Sure does,” said Amanda, “did you notice the red car parked out front when you came in?” The second man’s jaw dropped. “That was his Ferrari?”

I believe that insufficient civic education leaves citizens disengaged and disinterested in civic duties, like voting. Traditionally voter turnout among young adults is low, a statistic that might be improved if California required more than one semester of government class.

uates are prepared for civic participation. Future leadership, policy development and elections depend on quality education promoting a sense of civic responsibility.

in sacred ground. At the end of three days of mourning they built a huge fire and burned all the athletic equipment the university had provided. As thick smoke rolled down the mountain and spread out toward San Diego the tribal shaman stood with Mountain Bear at the top of Vulcan Mountain. Mountain Bear spoke the curse that said San Diego’s athletic teams would always break their fans hearts and never win that final game.”

As long as we take our responsibility to cast an informed vote seriously, we will continue to keep Lincoln’s vision alive. In today’s busy and fast-paced world, it may seem like a chore to spend time studying the candidates and issues. Some do not even bother to vote, reasoning that their one vote will not matter.

But that one vote does matter, given that many people throughout the world do not enjoy the same privilege. If you have not done so, please vote. Take the time to know what you want to see from government, study your choices, research the facts and then vote accordingly. Simply trusting what other people and organizations say is no substitute for your own judgment. After all, government belongs to all of us as American citizens. Let us honor the sacrifices of the past by voting for our future. Assemblyman Martin Garrick, R-Carlsbad, represents the 74th Assembly District in the California Legislature and Assembly served as

‘Letters to the Editor’ Cont. from Page 10 zation of local citizens who want this plant shut down. Some want all nuclear plants shut down. Web site is sanonofre.com There is no way this area of 8.4 million people, in the 50 mile radius evacuation zone, will be able to leave here. /s/Miriam E. Clark Carlsbad, CA. The Tax Wolf in Bond Clothing When people hear "bond" it's likely to conjur up postiive sentiments such as James or savings. Few people think "tax", but that's the decision confronting Californians like never before. Come November 6th. $14.4 Billion in bond measures will be on the ballot. (It's actually closer to $40 Billion as you'll see below.) Over the last decade statewide straight tax initiatives don't have a good passing rate, but 80% of school bonds have been approved since 2001 when laws changed requiring only 55% approval instead of the super majority 2/3rds. School officials have spotted this easy money and are drowning citizens with a whopping 600% increase in the amount of bonds compared to the last election. Bonds are loans government entities takes out with a promise to repay using future collected taxes. These loans typically have a payback period of 20-40 years. Repayment plans can vary much like house or auto loans. There can be introductory teaser rates, interest only or even periods of no payments like Poway, Santee and dozens of other school districts have entered into which will see them paying back 10-20 times what they initially borrowed. Why are school bonds so easily approved while traditional tax initiatives are voted down? Many citizens don't have the economic sophistication to understand bonds are a form of taxation. The ballot language for bond measures talks about "issuing" and "selling" bonds. Usually when products are sold there's a profit made which is a positive step for finances. Deeper in the ballot text it mentions a tax will be required, but that's surrounded by dense financial language that most gloss over. If the ballot language used the more understandable borrow and loan terms, voters would better appreciate the implications of bonds. Bonds are most often used for schools which lends itself to a sympathetic emotion "it's for the kids" appeal. While big construction projects and essential repairs such as the ever present "leaky roofs" are often touted as the justification for bonds, enrollment at most public schools is flat or down which raises questions about whether massive school building is even necessary. Bond moneys can be spent on everything except payroll

and benefits. Furniture, iPads, personal computers or even routine maintenance such as paint, carpet, and light bulbs are now uses of bond funds. Districts are increasingly turning to bond money to pay for everything in the budget that isn't personnel costs thereby freeing up money for ever growing salaries and benefits. Some have rightly criticized the strategy of borrowing money over 25 years to pay for lightbulbs and tablet computers which will only last a few years. The true cost of bonds are routinely understated in ballot literature. For example Proposition Z, the San Diego Unified School District bond measure is listed as a $2.8 Billion bonds. Since bonds are loans not only the principal must be paid back, but also interest. Rates vary but a conservative estimate will see double the amount borrowed in interest charges over the life of the bond. Thus the $2.8 billion bond will require repayment of around $8 billion. Nowhere in the ballot description is this true cost mentioned which leads people to greatly under-estimate the cost of bond measures. Bonds are the most insidious form of taxation because the entire amount is received up front with future citizenry required to repay the money years later. Bonds are the diametric opposite of living within your means. It's alluring to politician who gets to spend the largesse while they're in office and who will likely be long gone when the bulk of repayment come due. 106 different local bond initiatives will be on the upcoming CA ballot. Each offering what may feel like a free ride to many - almost a gift for our children. The biggest gift for the children will be to vote no on loans which will saddle them with massive debt obligations in their earning years for paint, light bulbs and iPads long since worthless. Michael Robertson San Diego, CA Editor’s Note: We agree with much of what Mr. Robertson has to say about bonds. This is one of the biggest reasons we have opposed Propositon EE, calling for a bond issue for Mira Costa College in the amount of $497 million. Where is Our Police Chief? Ok. So after all the shuffling of feet, hang-dog expressions and disclaimers of "We're not going to get into that" by local politicos, where in the world is Escondido Chief of Police Jim Maher? It may be difficult for the Escondido City Council to understand but a sizable portion of our citizens really care about Maher and are happy with his policing. We are not that happy with the city's lack of forthrightness in suggesting that Maher should stay home indefinitely while others are investigated for transgressions that Maher reported in the first place.

Bichon Bash A Great Success! What is a Bichon, you may ask? A Bichon is a small, cuddly pup, normally white, but available in other light colors as well. Technically, they are Bichon Frise - a on-sporting category dog breeds. They vary in appearance, but all

have tails curled over their back, a coat that is hair rather than fur that doesn't readily shed, short snouts, drop ears, and large, dark eyes. They were all bred to be amiable companion dogs and have a friendly, alert temperament. Simply called Bichons in America, they were the guest of honor at last Saturday’s Bichon Bash, held at the Hidden Valley Obedience Club in Escondido. 150 to 200 small white fluffy dogs cavorting with their humans

and playing with one another on the beautiful green lawns a of the venue. In the first quarter of 2013 Bichon Fur Kids Rescue will reach their 2,000th adoption! since founded by Marti Colwell in 2006. People e interested in learning about the breed should contact Marti Colwell at their website info@bichonfurkids.org. The pups will thank you . . . and you’ll be happier for your new life’s companion!

The alleged transgressions and their perpetrators remain under cloud of secrecy. Maher's boss, our city manager, and city council, have clammed-up and simply point fingers at each other. For our civic leadership to hide behind the cloak of "Personnel Matter" seems utter nonsense and only serves to destroy our confidence in those elected to serve us. /s/Sid Colquitt Escondido, CA.

‘Chuckles’ Cont. from Page 2 mine the winner.After much of back and forth discussion, it was decided that the contest would take place on a remote frozen lake in northern Wisconsin. There were to be no observers present, and both men were to be sent out separately on this isolated lake and return at 5 P.M. with their catch for counting and verification by a team of neutral parties. At the end of the first day, Mitt Romney returned to the starting line and he had 10 fish. Soon after, Obama returned and had no fish. Well, everyone assumed he was just having a bad day or something, and hopefully he would catch up the next day. At the end of the 2nd day Mitt came in with 20 fish and Obama came in again with none. That evening, the democrats got together secretly and said to Obama, "I think Mitt Romney is a low-life, cheatin' son-of-a-gun.

Tomorrow don't bother fishing just spy on him and see just how he is cheating.' The next night (after Mitt returns with 50 fish), the democrats got together for the report of how the republicans were cheating. Obama said, "You are not going to believe this, he's cutting holes in the ice! Out of the Mouths of Babes Last week, I took my grandchildren to a restaurant. My sixyear-old grandson asked if he could say grace. As we bowed our heads he said, "God is good, God is great. Thank you for the food, and I would even thank you more if Grandpa gets us ice cream for dessert. And liberty and justice for all! Amen!" Along with the laughter from the other customers nearby, I heard a woman remark, "That's what's wrong with this country. Kids today don't even know how to pray. Asking God for ice cream! Why, I never!" Hearing this, my grandson burst into tears and asked me, "Did I do it wrong? Is God mad at me?"

As I held him and assured him that he had done a terrific job, and God was certainly not mad at him, an elderly gentleman approached the table. He winked at my grandson and said, "I happen to know that God thought that was a great prayer." "Really?" my grandson asked. "Cross my heart," the man replied. Then, in a theatrical whisper, he added (indicating the woman whose remark had started this whole thing), "Too bad she never asks God for ice cream. A little ice cream is good for the soul sometimes."

LIVING IN REVERSE

Laura Strickler A reverse mortgage offers a solution for homeowners over the age of 62 to utilize their home’s equity to ease their financial burdens and stresses in their golden years. Today, as we are all faced with ever rising costs of living, it’s easy to understand how stressful that would be if living on a fixed income. Many of us planned for a very different type of retirement than we are now financially capable of fulfilling. The reverse mortgage, a government insured loan program, is the way to afford a less stressful, more enjoyable retirement. The reverse mortgage industry has created a very flexible loan program to accommodate virtually every need. The adjustable rate program is an option which allows

a borrower to establish a line of credit with funds from their reverse mortgage. The line of credit is very flexible-it can be set up to pay out a certain amount each month that is direct deposited to your account. It can be set up to allow monthly withdrawals to be direct deposited to your account. It can be left untouched and used as an emergency fund or to hold on to for anticipated medical or healthcare expenses. And you are also able to change the way you receive your money throughout the life of your loan. You are able to contact customer service and change the way your receive funds for a nominal charge ($25.00). If you are 62, with a home valued at $300,000 you would qualify for a loan amount of $185,700 at today’s adjustable rate of 2.961%. You have an existing mortgage of $75,000 that would be paid off and you want to take the rest in monthly advances for the remainder of your life. You would no longer have any mortgage payment to make and you would receive $526.12 for life. You are still required to pay your property taxes and homeowner’s hazard insurance. And you have given yourself a raise by not having to mail out that monthly mortgage check! You’ve also set yourself up to receive $526.12 every month for the rest of your life!

As time goes by, if you find you need more money per month, you can contact customer service and they can re-work the numbers for you. The more money you take on a monthly basis, the less time you would receive it. If you didn’t have a mortgage to pay off, you could set up a line of credit with that same $75,000 and still take monthly advances of $526.12 for life. The line of credit would be growing at a rate of 4.211%. What that means is that as years go by, you have an increasing amount of money in your line of credit from which to withdraw. Amwest is your local source for advice on the reverse mortgage loan program. We have many years of experience that can only benefit you in making such an
