War, they say, is a bad thing. Imagine that.
Our enemy is always portrayed on video grabs, on photo coverage in the newspaper, and in the written word, as an evil, grotesque monster. Every single one of them.
But maybe not every one. Maybe not a lot of them.
Maybe, just maybe, most of the people that live within the nations that we have declared to be ‘our enemy’ want the same things you and I do. Peace, food, warmth, friendship, comfort, dialogue.
It’s funny what happens when you sit down and get to know someone with whom you think you disagree. Once you get to know them you find they don’t have horns, don’t have tails, and are, in fact, a pretty warm and friendly type.
The problem lies not with the people themselves, but with their radical leadership. That, it can be said, is true of us as well.
Most of us bear no enmity toward the folks who live in Iran, or Syria, or other far off places. It’s their leadership. And our leadership. Those are the two factions that declare war on one another, that make plans for militaristic actions that could plunge the world into another world war. The terrible sadness of it all is a lot of very wonderful, warm, loving and caring people . . . will die. People who could have become close, lifelong friends, will likely die if the madness continues. It need not be so.
I have met a great many Persians, known today as Iranians.
I have never met a warmer, kinder, more gentle and loving people. Most of them left their home country, which they truly loved and love, because of the radical government that came to power and became threatening to their lives, their homes, The Paper - 760.747.7119
I have come to love these people. Were I a younger man I would study Farsi . . . the language of the Persian people.
I would love to visit Iran and see the beautiful cities, the beautiful countryside, the mountains, the ski slopes, the fine dining restaurants . . . ele-
ments we have here at home but that Iran also has and of equal, if not greater, beauty. But politics prevents that.
Most, but not all, of the Iranians I know are members of Baha’i, a religion which follows the teachings of The Faith’s Founder, Bahá’u’lláh, a Persian nobleman from Tehran

who, in the mid-nineteenth century, left a life of princely comfort and security and, in the face of intense persecution and deprivation, brought his religious philosophy to the people. Bahá’u’lláh claimed to be nothing less than a new and independent Messenger from God. His life, work, and influence parallel that of Abraham,

Krishna, Moses, Zoroaster, Buddha, Christ, and Muhammad. Bahá’ís view Bahá’u’lláh as the most recent in this succession of divine Messengers.
While I am not Baha’i, I have come to know and love them as a people. I met many of them following a cover story we did on Baha’i back in 2009. (If you wish to read it, go here: http://www.thecommunitypaper.com/archive/2009/02_26/in dex.php Were I a religious type I would probably most closely align with them.
Iran is known, technically, as the Islamic Republic of Iran. Of Iran’s religon, the majority of Iranians are Shia Islam (about 90-95%, with about 4% of the Sunni Islam faction.
Sunni Islam is the world's second largest religious body (after Christianity) and the largest religious denomination for any religion in the world. Sunni Islam is sometimes referred to as the orthodox version of the religion. The word "Sunni" refers to the sayings and actions of the Islamic prophet Muhammad as recorded in hadiths. The Shia, or the Shiites, repre-

sent the second largest denomination of Islam. Shi'a is the short form of the historic phrase Shīʻatu ʻAlī meaning "followers," "faction" or "party" of Muhammad's son-in-law and cousin Ali, whom the Shia believe to be Muhammad's successor in the Caliphate. Shia Muslims constitute 10-15% of the world's Muslim population, while Sunnis constitute 8590%. On the surface, the U.S. and Iranian governments have much in common: a president who is popularly elected, a boisterous legislature, and a powerful judiciary. The obvious difference lies in the fact that Iran is an Islamic theocracy, and that one man, the Supreme Leader, exerts ideological and political control over a system dominated by clerics who shadow every major function of the state. This Islamic infrastructure is so strong, so all-permeating within Iran’s culture, that it is likely to never be overthrown, even if war would come. It’s control of power permeates the country from the largest cities to the rural areas.
The Supreme Leader also is commander-in-chief of the armed forces and controls the Islamic Republic's intelligence and security operations; he alone can declare war or peace. He has the power to appoint and dismiss the leaders of the judiciary, the state radio and

He also appoints six of the twelve members of the Council of Guardians, the powerful body that oversees the activities of Parliament and determines which candidates are qualified to run for public office. The Supreme Leader's sphere of power is extended through his representatives, an estimated 2,000 of whom are sprinkled throughout all sectors of the government and who serve as the Leader's clerical field operatives. While the Islamic Government is quite strict and often bellicose, the people of Iran are not. My first introduction to the Iranian people was via Dr. Omid Rahmanian, a brilliant and very successful chiropractor who came to the USA in 1979.
Omid began to advertise with The Paper and we came to know him first on a business basis, then we became great friends. He introduced me to many Iranians who shared his faith of Baha’i. As a result of this friendship we pulbished a cover story on Baha’i which we referenced earlier in this story. Omid has a fascinating story.

a half before the Shah’s regime was toppled.
The upheaval had begun in late 1978. My dad had hoped to enroll me in university, so that I might seek higher education. But dad, being a Baha’i, not only saw the universities go on strike but Baha’is were barred from going into higher education. So, he arranged for me to seek higher education in America and I left, arriving in 1979. I remember as I stepped of the airport I saw the time. It was 12:01 am. The symbolic beginning of a brand new day.” Omid would attend Chiropractic School and graduate with honors. He also met a beautiful young Iranian girl, Parisa, who would become a dentist. Being a very smart fella, he married her and they have a lovely family.
We spoke of the warm, hospitable atmosphere that embraces the Iranian people. He said, “Let me tell you a story. When my cousin and I were about 15 or 16 years old we decided to go exploring. We went out into the countryside to see what we could learn and see if we could do something in the way of socio-development type work, helping out the more needy people. We

part- time, for automobile dealerships in Escondido. He passed on after a lengthy illness with dementia, in September of this year.
He will be missed and remembered for his love of people and his love of family, often visiting his parents, uncles, and brother, Mike, and their families in Washington state. He is survived by his wife, Karen and the above named family members. A private family memorial celebration will be held later this year.
Born in California, Peter grew up in Richland, Wa., son of Larry and Ethna Bradley. He had two brothers, Mike and John. His father worked at Hanford Nuclear Plant and later became the Director of Energy for the state of Washington. After college, Peter spent time in the Army then settled in California, working for J.C.Penny for a number of years. During this same period, he served in the “Big Brother Program.” He moved to Escondido, California in the mid 1970’s, and worked as a Sales Representative for the Automobile Club of Southern California and married Karen Ogden in 1977. His two stepsons, Brian and Larry Ogden were in high school during this time and they played golf with Pete which was his favorite thing to do. He played for nearly 50 years, the last 33 years at Escondido Country Club. He was also active in the 1970’s and early 1980’s at Patio Playhouse, both in acting and Board work. Later, he spoke to High School driving classes, on behalf of AAA, on the subjects of insurance and safe driving.
Pete was especially proud of Brian and Larry as he often spoke of what good men and fathers they were. He delighted in two grandsons, Steven and Sean who lived locally and seldom missed their Little League ball games and 4-H showings at the County Fair. Many trips were also made to Texas where he spent time with the other three grandchildren, Zac, McKenzie, and Megan, who were active in gymnastics and water sports. And, another grandson, Finnegan and big sister, Raine, came along a few years later, who he enjoyed very much. He also had a recent visit from his uncle, Jim Bradley from Washington state and his late brother John’s son, Owen, who is in the Navy, currently stationed in Coronado. Retiring in 1997, after 22 years at AAA, he played golf for several more years and drove

Obviously a very poor village. Some kids were playing volleyball and they invited us to join them. After the game they insisted we come to their house and their mom insisted on preparing us lunch. We accepted the invitation. He is this very poor family and they embraced us as though we were family. It ingrained on me then, and now, the amazing heritage of our Iranian culture of hospitality . . . loving strangers.”
I have been asked why I love Iran so much. My grandfather was exiled for 95 days simply because he celebrated the Baha’i Holy Days; I still love Iran. It’s not because life was easy in Iran before the revolution . . . because of our following Baha’i our homes were stoned. My dad was in prison for five years, arrested by fanatics who came into the house with guns, and took him away, leaving my mom, me, and my 15 year old brother alone. It took me 21 years before I was able to see and talk to my dad again. They shut down the university. My sister had her visa canceled during the hostage crisis. In spite all this . . . I love Iran . . . because of the kindness of the people, because of the 2500 years of culture . . . I love Iran because of her beautiful scenery, her beautiful cities, and the beautiful people . . . not the fanatics who dwell on power . . . but on the pure and simple people.”
Omid went back home in 2000. His dad, long since out of prison, had the deed to his home and money set aside to make bail in case the authorities were to arrest Omid while visiting his home and family. Fortunately, it was not necessary. Later, Omid’s mom and dad would emigrate to America. They now live in Oceanside.
Omid thinks it is telling that several of the guards who had guarded his dad became his friends Once they left the employ of the prison they contacted him and said if he needed anything at all to call them. They would help. And they did. And have, several times.
Several friends of mine who are Iranian:
John Moetam, owner of Dominic’s Restaurant in Escondido: “I lived in Tehran when I moved to America in 1985. I had learned English as a second language which is quite common in our schools. I and my family are Shia Muslims; Iran is the largest Shia country in the world.
I was 12 years old when I left; I came by myself as my brother was already here. My father didn’t want me to go to war and war clouds with Iraq were building. Dad passed away in Iran, mom came to the US and passed away several years after arriving here. I have returned several times to Iran; I have a number of aunts and uncles there as well as cousins. I have no problem entering or leaving the country. Tourism, however, is not big as there are many restrictions as to who may visit.
Most people know our country as Iran but we prefer the old name of Persia.
In spite of the various military hostilities you have seen over the years, Persia is a very peaceful country and people. People have tried to conquer us and we have said, ‘you don’t have to conquer us . . . come and be our friend. Dine with us. Live with us. Ever since Alexander the Persians have not been an aggressive, warlike people. We will defend ourselves if need be, but we do not invade.”
Another Iranian I have met, Fari Farihay, a beautiful woman (I have found that Iran has some of the most beautiful women in the world): “I was just 18 when I came to the U.S. in 1978. It was August 23rd.
I didn’t come here with the intention of immigrating, but to visit. I had my eldest brother, Foad Towfiq, who was studying for his Phd in Physics in France. Another brother was studying for his Phd in Irvine, California, and a sister working on her undergraduate degree. I had just finished high school and Foad was to give a speech at MIT and then we were to have a family reunion in Irvine.
With two uncles already living here in America I came along with mom and my youngest brother and we all gathered together It was then that the revolution started and my dad wrote us, telling us to not come back, that they were burning houses and killing people . . . and, as were a family who followed Baha’i, we were particularly susceptible to attacks from the Islamic regime. Eventually, the regime arrested
my father and 15 other Baha’is and put them all in prison. They were released after a few days. Because dad was a Baha’i they canceled his salary and pension. Suddenly, dad has no money, we had no money, we were all but destitute. It was a very emotional time. I went to work at Jack in the Box to earn extra money; we all worked and pooled our money just to survive. I was terribly sad because I had not gotten a chance to say good bye to a lot of family and friends in Iran before leaving, for good, as it turned out.
One of my brothers had become a citizen so he was able to apply for a Green Card (Resident Alien Card) for my dad and he got it. Dad got on the last airplane out of Iran before the revolutionaries took over the American Embassy. He just barely escaped Iran.
Meanwhile, all of the other 15 Baha’is who had been arrested earlier were re-arrested. They were tortured for years, all but one of them dying in prison. The one who was released was my uncle, who was finally released after years of torture. Our entire family bought a house together - once again, we had unity; we helped each other financially and spiritually. I earned a Master Degree in Computer Science, and a Masters Degree in Applied Mathematics. I began teaching for five years at Saddleback College and then Palomar College for the past 24 years. I’m still there with another 1112 years to retire. Before the revolution - in general, Iran was a very comfortable place to live. Very westernized . . . but, if you’re Baha’i, it’s not as comfortable. If you apply for job . . . if you list Baha’i as your religion, they will probably not hire you.
If you were to be allowed to visit Iran, however, you would fine the Iranian people very hospitable and friendly.
Her brother, Foad, left Iran in 1980. With his Phd in Physics he wound up with a very comfortable job with a major software company. He said there was not as much political pressure then, before he left. He confirmed that the uncle who survived prison in Iran passed away just a few months ago. There may be change in the political air in Iran, but I’m not sure it’s a good change.
Women are the latest target in an increasingly bitter power struggle between Hassan Rouhani, Iran’s president, and

The Paper has confirmed that the San Diego District Attorney's office has received numerous complaints about the recent matter involving the forced retirement of former Chief of Police Jim Maher and they are "under review." Reviewing a case is the protocal followed to determine if that merits opening a formal investigation.
It is, however, a significant statement that something is happening. At the same time, we have learned that complaints have been filed with the California Attorney General's office, with the Secretary of State, and with the California Bar Association. The Paper can also document that more and more residents are signing on to a website formed by former Escondido Mayor Jerry Harmon and building political pressure on law enforcement to do its job of, at a minimum, investigating the allegations of Election Code violation, which is a felony.

The Paper has also learned that Michael Schlesinger was the one who made the suggestion, but with two conditions: that the city of Escondido be involved and that ECCHO present a plan to Schlesinger prior to the meeting(s). It is presumed that ECCHO has such a plan since they have agree to participate in those negotiations.

A Different Solution?
I attended the meetings of the Escondido Planning Commission and the Escondido City Council during which my neighbors from Del Dios spewed lies about the unaccompanied minors that were to be housed in an abandoned nursing home. Many of the speakers claimed that the children carried airborne illness and would escape to commit crime. I believe that the children are innocent and deserve to be well cared for but the crowd was so hostile, I was afraid to speak. Instead, I contacted the Border Patrol and asked how I could help. A few weeks later, I received a reply that suggested chilrden are serving the armed forces and he is a retired Air Force vet. You mention a military person is having problems and Dave drops what he’s doing and sees to it that the problem is addressed immediately.
As an added incentive to donate food or clothing, for every box you bring in Dr. Hurt will donate $25 toward any dental treatment you have.

Another Thought . . .
Yes, I am discouraged by the results of the election. The citizens of Escondido are so apathetic unless it is something they don't like. They have no right to complain unless they voted which the majority didn't. From some of the comments in Nov 6th Letters to the Editor, it is obvious the election wasn't just determined on issues but on personalities, emotion, & race.
More disturbing to me was the hate expressed to the Editor. Where does it say that only women may change their minds? Today with instant

his hardline opponents.
Acid attacks on at least four women in the central city of Isfahan last week, allegedly because they were not following strict dress codes, are widely thought to be a part of a campaign by hardliners to “propagate virtue and prevent vice”.
The incident has sparked panic and anger among Iranian women. The sense of fear has been heightened by a new law being debated in parliament that would protect citizens who “correct” women and men who do not abide by Islamic “rules”.
Mr Rouhani hit back at the apparent show of force by hardliners, warning them to stay away from provoking “insecurity” under the pretext of promoting “virtue” and preventing “vice.”
Speaking to a crowd in the northwestern city of Zanjan, Mr Rouhani criticised radicals who regard “the hijab [of women] the only vice in the country” while ignoring “corruption . . . unemployment and poverty”.
“The survival of some [hardliners] depends only on [fuelling] discord . . . between the nation and the government, among the people and political parties,” he said.
Hardliners are based mainly in the judiciary, the parliament, the state-run radio and television and the elite Revolutionary Guards. They are already mobilizing against Mr Rouhani in the hope of reinstating their parliamentary majority in 2016 elections, ahead of a presidential poll the following year.
Women are a particular hardline target. They, along with university students, are Mr Rouhani’s main support base and could play a significant role in securing the victory of his allies in the parliamentary election. This could in turn lead to his re-election as president.
If his hard line opponents are elected . . . watch out. There will likely be even more repression and a big push to impose strict Sharia (Islamic) law. Several Iranians I interviewed for this story confirmed that life was not as bad in Iran before the Shah was deposed.
At the top of Iran's power structure is the Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who succeeded Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, the father of the Iranian Revolution, upon Khomeini's death in 1989. Khomeini and Khamenei are the only two men to have held the office since the founding of the Islamic Republic in 1979.

Important Changes are Coming to Sacramento
Prior to the new state law, a one-year residency was required of all students in California before they could qualify for in-state tuition. Numerous other states already have residency waivers for veterans on tuition to public colleges. Tuition savings is anticipated to be between $5,000 and $22,900 annually, depending on course load and institution.
Making sure veterans are able to attend California’s colleges and universities at in-state rates conveys our commitment to those who have served.

defeated by a challenger. And in the State Senate, Republican Janet Nguyen defeated Jose Solorio in Orange County’s 34th District.
In California, the most significant impact of the election will be the elimination of the two-thirds “supermajority” the Democrats have enjoyed for most of the past two years. The two-thirds threshold gives the majority party the power to raise taxes and override gubernatorial vetoes without any votes from the minority party.
Though the nationwide “red wave” barely created a ripple in California, these results, combined with the coming influx of freshmen joining the Legislature as a result of term limits, should lead to more bipartisanship in Sacramento and serve as a strong deterrent for anyone planning to raise taxes or undermine Proposition 13 protections for the state’s overburdened taxpayers.

This could be important because at the next court hearing in February Judge Earl Maas could find that the rezoning of the country club property to “open space” was illegal. If that happens, it reverts to the prior zoning and Mr. Schlesinger could, if he chose, build out to a much larger development. He has indicated to The Paper, however, that he would much rather negotiate a deal in which all parties would be happy. Major Injury Traffic Collision
On Saturday, November 15, at 7:43 a.m., a Carlsbad Police Department Sergeant was on a traffic stop on Solamar Drive east of Carlsbad Blvd. At that time the Sergeant heard a collision between a motorcyclist and a sedan at the intersection of Solamar Drive and Carlsbad Blvd. The Sergeant responded and provided medical aid for the injured motorcyclist while waiting for an ambulance and fire department resources to respond. Carlsbad Fire Department personnel responded and assumed the medical treatment of the injured motorcyclist. The motorcyclist was transported by ambulance to Scripps La Jolla Hospital with major

novel, “Casino Royale,” in 1952. It was such a success there were three press runs to meet the demand. Between 1953 and 1966, there were 11 Bond novels as well as two short-story collections. The novels revolved around James Bond, an officer in the Secret Intelligence Service, commonly known as MI6. Bond’s character is also known by his code number, 007, and was a commander in the Royal Naval Reserve. The Bond stories rank among the best-selling series of fictional books of all time, having sold over 100 million copies worldwide. Fleming also wrote the children's story “Chitty-Chitty-Bang-Bang” and two works of non-fiction.
The Man Who Would Be Bond
Born May 28, 1908, Ian Lancaster Fleming was a famed English author, journalist and British Naval Intelligence officer, who lived many of the actual experiences he wrote about in his James Bond series of spy novels. While working for Britain's Naval Intelligence Division during World War II, Fleming was involved in planning “Operation Golden Eye” and in the planning and oversight of two commando intelligence units. His wartime service and his career as a journalist provided much of the background, detail and depth of his spy novels. Fleming wrote his first Bond
One of Fleming’s numerous memos, called “Trout,” compared the deception of an enemy in wartime to fly fishing. One of Fleming’s many schemes to be considered for use against the Axis powers to lure U-boats and German surface ships towards minefields. His 28th proposal on a memo list was an idea to plant misleading papers on a corpse that would be found by the Nazis. Another similar suggestion was made by a Royal Air Force planner. Whose idea was actually used is up for speculation. Author Basil Thomson wrote about the operation, which fooled the Nazis into thinking the Allies were going to invade Greece instead of Sicily.

Changing the leadership of Iran is problematic. Why? Well, they’ve structured it that way. For example, The Assembly of Experts, meets for one week every year; it consists of 86 "virtuous and learned" clerics elected by the public to eight-year terms. Like presidential and parliamentary elections, the Council of Guardians determines who can run for a seat in the assembly. Members of the Assembly of Experts in turn elect the Supreme Leader from within their own ranks and periodically reconfirm him. The assembly has never been known to challenge any of the Supreme Leader's decisions.
Thus the Supreme Leader has things pretty much the way he wants them and controls the political structure of his country.
Barring another revolution, where the Supreme Leader and its myriad forms of infrastructure are ‘uninstalled,’ it looks liek were are in for more radical government viewpoints and actions. Which is a shame.
The whole point of this essay is
to show the Iranian people, not the politicians, are the ones we should be dealing with and caring for. Without the power of government, however, little of substance can be done. I am hopeful America and Iran never go to war. But, with tensions over the Iran government’s rapidly growing realization of becoming a nuclear power, with their stated intent of destroying Israel, with their supplying of arms and training to terrorists in Iraq and Syria, with open hostility toward the United States . . . there remains that possibility.
If and when that comes, a great many innocent Iranian people will be caught in the air attacks, the bombings, all of the horrors of a war they didn’t start and wanted no part of. It is only if we can specifically target the radical leadership of Iran, and possibly provide military weapons and other support to those Iranians interested in forming a nother revolution, then, and only then, might Iran revert to the peaceful and hospitable nation in was, and could be again Sources: Personal interviews.

Fleming also worked with U.S. Brig. Gen."Wild Bill" Donovan, who was President Franklin D. Roosevelt's special envoy between London and Washington. Fleming assisted in writing the blueprint to form the Office of Strategic Services, forerunner of the CIA. Fleming did not fight in the field with the commando units he formed, but selected and directed target operations from the rear. On the formation of the first unit it was only 30 men strong, but it grew to five times that size. The unit was filled with men from other commando units, and trained in unarmed combat, safecracking and lock-picking.
Before the Normandy landings, most of Fleming’s commando operations were in the Mediterranean, although it secretly participated in the illfated Dieppe Raid to capture an Enigma crypto machine. Because of its successes in Sicily and Italy, the unit became greatly trusted by British and American naval intelligence services.
In March 1944, Fleming oversaw the distribution of intelligence to Royal Navy units in preparation for Operation Overlord (D-Day) and followed the commando unit into Germany after it located theTambach Castle, the repository for German naval archives since 1870. Fleming suspected files pertaining to the Nazi’s nuclear weapon development was being held at that site.
Fleming died April 12, 1964, at the age of 56, suffering from respiratory and heart failure. Details of his life, both military and romantic affairs during World War II, reads as good as his novels. His creation of James Bond is the alter-ego of Ian Fleming, one of the unsung heroes of the War.

Harold: Sweet, Loving and Shy
Harold is a 2-3 year old lab, shepherd, chow mix. Harold was rescued by the Puppy Coalition Foundation of Escondido from the San Bernardino City Shelter and is a very sweet dog that can fit in with any family or group. Harold eagerly demonstrates his appreciation to all who show him kindness. He is good with people and most any other dogs. He would make a spectacular pal and companion. He is pretty unexcitable and low key which is what you want if a new dog is coming into a family particularly for those folks who are not interested in a high energy puppy to keep up with. Harold could be a great therapy dog. He will reduce the anxiety in any home. Harold is about 50 pounds, is neutered and has all his vaccinations. His only rehoming fee is his cost of neutering and vaccinations to bring him current. If you would like to check out this sweet dog, call Bruce at 760-612-9156. You will be glad you did.

The Pastor Says . . .
less of the humanity of the vessel it is delivered through.
Of my graduating class at seminary, many of my classmates no longer serve in full time church ministry. God has led them in other directions. Still, I thank the Father that He has not only seen fit to use me my entire adult life in this way, but that my heart has not waned for the church.
Pastor Sam Brumit Mission 316, San Marcos My Years in Ministry By
Thinking back over my years inministry, I realize that I really love what I do. I can’t say that I have not had seasons when I experienced discouragement or heartbreak, I can truly say that I don’t regret the decision I made many years ago to enter the ministry.
One of the things I love is the opportunity weekly to give messages. Sometimes I can’t wait till Sunday and at other times, it comes way too fast. Talks sometimes just come together. Other times I think “this one will be”great” and it falls flat. Still, in all of it, I have learned that God uses His Word, regard-
To me, ministry is not a job. It’s a calling... to love God and to love people. If I stop loving people, I need to do something else. People can tell if I am just going through the motions. Again, I’ve not been perfect at this, but it's a privilege to serve. I look forward to it each day.
Something that has helped sustain me for the long haul is that I have come to realize my strengths. There are some things I am pretty good at and some that will never be in my top five of Strength Finders or in my spiritual gift mix. It’s okay. I am no longer petitioning God for a “gift upgrade.” I’ll just do my part. I love 1st Corinthians 15:58: “With all this going for us, my dear, dear friends, stand your ground. And don’t hold back. Throw yourselves into the work of the Master, confident that nothing you do for him is a waste of time or effort.” I’ll keep going…

San Marcos • Mayor Jim Desmond Shop local San Marcos!
With the holiday season upon us, I want to remind residents to stay close to home when shopping and dining. Spending locally is not only convenient for residents; San Marcos businesses benefit too. Sales fortify their strength and enhance the local economy. Shopping and dining locally is a win-win-win for our community. It saves time and resources for residents, helps build the backbone of our local economy,
and ensures that the City continues to deliver top-notch programs, projects and services to its residents.
When transactions are made locally, sales tax revenue is generated to support important City services such as law enforcement, fire protection, parks and recreation and street maintenance. When dollars are spent locally, residents are directly contributing to their community’s quality of life.
San Marcos is the place to be this holiday season!

The Paper • Page 12 • November 20, 2014 short answer is that different companies serve different customers, and so do we.
Paul & Nome Van Middlesworth, The Computer Factory
What’s the Difference?
Once in a while a new customer will say. “We were just over at Fry’s and they’ve got HP (or Dell) computer for $399. Can you beat that price?” The answer is yes, we could, but no, we won’t. The “bottom feeder” retail specials are rarely a bargain at any price.
We decided to see how cheaply we actually could build a desktop PC. Using new but cheap components, we found we could make a nifty profit margin on a brand new $399 PC. Actual parts and labor came in under $250. So why don’t we do it? That’s like asking Rolex why they don’t compete with Timex or why a Tesla is more expensive than a Chevy Volt. The
To many retail computer shoppers, a computer is a computer. All they want to know is “will it get on the Internet and hook up to a printer” If it will (and they all will) they’ll buy the cheapest PC in the store and take it home. Those folks, bless their hearts, are not our customers, at least not for new PCs. We will see them soon enough when their “El Cheapo” goes “sneakers up” and they bring it in for repair.
Seventy five percent of our new systems customers are business users. They’re looking for value, performance and reliability and they know they won’t find it in a $399 PC. In 2008 Apple CEO Steve Jobs was asked why Apple didn’t make a competively priced (cheap) PC. He answered, “There are some customers we choose not to serve. We don’t know how to make a $500 computer that is not a piece of junk and our DNA will not let us ship that (junk).” Of course Jobs was really only rationalizing Apples obscene pricing but the point is well taken.
Our customers want to be able to talk to the people who built their PC instead of some marginally literate phone tech in some low rent country. When our customers need a repair they would prefer to drop it off for a day or two rather than mail it off for a week or two. Our customers want reliability so we use premium components with multi-year warranties instead of the single year warranty, low bidder components in HP/Dell and other retail PCs. Over 90% of our customers choose Windows 7 for their new desktop and notebook PCs. You don’t find that in retail stores. Dell/HP and the others make most of their retail profit by stuffing new
PCs with third party advertising (ads, pop-ups, links and trial programs.) Our customers want clean uncluttered desktop and notebook PCs.
Probably the biggest difference between getting a new PC at The Computer Factory and buying one online or in a big box store is the opportunity to talk face to face with people who really do know computers and really do care about getting you, our customer, exactly what you need, no more, no less. Still not convinced?
Then take home one of those retail specials with Windows 8.1 but don’t forget, you only have fifteen days to return it.
We, like Apple, can’t be all things to all people. We just want to be the best thing for the customer base that we

Would You Consider Helping Save Rescued Dogs by Fostering Them?
The Puppy Coalition Foundation rescues many dogs from regional kill shelters. These dogs are often rescued on their last day of life in these “shelters.” The recipe for providing a foster home for a rescued dog is simple:
1.) A little space for a doggie bed somewhere in your home. We will even provide a bed. 2.) Spend a little time with the dog to go out and do “their business” and get some exercise walking. We like to suggest at least 45 minutes over the course of the day. More is great. These dogs are house-broken. 3.) Then add love. These dogs crave love because in the preceding months they have gotten little and they all yearn for close relationships with humans. The Puppy Coalition will provide dog food and handle veterinary needs.
We will work around your schedule to show the foster dogs to those who may be interested and potential adopters. We believe that you will find it personally rewarding helping a rescued dog to get a fresh start in a new life. If you would like to learn more about this opportunity to volunteer to help save some of these wonderful animals, call Bruce at 760-612-9156.
