Volume 43- No. 43
by Kent Ballard The 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis is generally regarded as the closest the Soviet Union and the United States ever came to all-out nuclear war. I was nine years old at the time. Over the years, I've realized that it was a pivotal point in my life although I was a child then. I can't explain it. I'm not sure The Paper - 760.747.7119

why this happened. Other people saw it come and go and went on about their business, sure and certain that both powers were simply too smart to ever go toe-to-toe like that again. (They were wrong, but it's taken us many years to find this out and document it.) But somewhere deep inside me there's still that little Indiana farm boy looking
down both barrels of every functioning nuclear weapon both sides had in October of '62. I've always enjoyed reading, primarily non-fiction with a heavy dose of history. I can tell you things about the Cuban Missile Crisis that you almost certainly never knew, and were certainly not made public at the time. But who cares anymore? Why not get over it, you damned fool? Everybody else did.
Being born with Bipolar Disorder might have something to do with it. Might. Most people with this disorder do not show signs of its onset until their teens or twenties. After careful questioning over a long period of time (years), my psychiatrist believes I was one of the rare ones. I drew my first breath as a bipolar. Happily, it's an easily treatable thing to have,

We take lithium supplements, actually a dietary supplement, and we become as boringly normal as an old shoe. That is ... if we are diagnosed. If we seek professional help. If we can adjust our bodies to taking lithium from pills instead of simple foods, like average folks. If ... if ... if ... I was in my mid-thirties before I was diagnosed. I asked my doctor when I first needed lithium supplements. He said I should have had them in my baby bottle. That goes a long way to explain a strange childhood, at least. But I'm left wondering. How much of my reaction to that Crisis was the Bipolar Disorder, and how much was common sense and a feeling of loneliness, abandonment, and sheer helpless terror? I've talked to many, many people who felt the same way. It's just that they recovered. I did-

This week, a compendium of wit, wisdom and neat stuff you can tell at parties. Enjoy! Important Women's Health Issue: • Do you have feelings of inadequacy? • Do you suffer from shyness? • Do you sometimes wish you were more assertive? • Do you suffer exhaustion from the day to day grind? If you answered yes to any of these questions, ask your doctor or pharmacist about Margaritas. Margaritas are the safe, natural way to feel better and
n't, not completely. I wonder how many other children were "shielded" from this monumental threat by loving parents, and who saw completely through their white lies and read the daily newspapers and watched the nightly news and television bulletins and were smart enough to understand what we were facing? I wonder how many other small children spread out old Standard Oil road maps and tried, by night lights in their bedrooms, to determine the distance from their homes to the nearest likely nuclear targets, along with fallout patterns and density? I cannot be the only one. There are others like me. Possibly thousands, but I think it's more likely hundreds of thousands. It's just something that doesn't come up in everyday conversation and as time goes by and we die out, no one will ever know. There will be no books written about our experiences. History will never have a clue about us. I wrote a long essay about this, hoping for a magazine article. I'm satisfied with what I wrote, but never submitted it. I didn't know where to send more confident about yourself and your actions. Margaritas can help ease you out of your shyness and let you tell the world that you're ready and willing to do just about anything. You will notice the benefits of Margaritas almost immediately and with a regimen of regular doses you can overcome any obstacles that prevent you from living the life you want to live. Shyness and awkwardness will be a thing of the past and you will discover many talents you never knew you had. Stop hiding and start living, with Margaritas. Margaritas may not be right for everyone. Women who are pregnant or nursing should not use Margaritas. However, women who wouldn't mind nursing or becoming pregnant are encouraged to try it. Side effects may include: - Dizziness - Nausea - Vomiting - Incarceration - Erotic lustfulness
it, who would be interested. There are a couple of finished copies around here somewhere. It's been years since I've seen them. "Khrushchev Remembers," his autobiography which was written in secret and smuggled to the United States by his son Sergei (who later became an American citizen, believe it or not) gives his point of view. It's far different than how we saw it. You know how an argument has two sides--always? So did this one, and the Soviet POV was far different than what we were told or led to believe. Khrushchev made a damned strong argument that the Soviets "won" the Cuban Missile Crisis, their main goal being to force the U.S. to remove our medium-range nuclear ballistic missiles from Turkey, right on their border. This we did--which was kept secret from the American public. No one had the slightest idea what we agreed to do to compromise a peaceful end to the Missile Crisis. We publicly promised never to invade Cuba, a promise kept to this day.

Turkey were decommissioned in days and gone in months, too. We didn't hear that part at the time. One of Khrushchev's biggest fears was how young the American President was. Yes, he was a wounded WW II vet. Yes, he'd been shot at during wartime. But Khrushchev had fought through Hitler's invasion of the Soviet Union and back, all the way to Berlin. He'd seen war and total destruction in his own county, years of it, thousands of miles of it. He was co-commander at the Battle of Stalingrad, now looked upon as the turning point of European World War Two. Millions on both sides were lost in that battle which lasted nearly a full year. At one point the Nazis had the Red Army pushed back within blocks of the Volga River but they never gave up, eventually winning the first major battle the Nazis ever lost. Old Nikita was a fairly decent writer, too. Better than any living politician of today, certainly. ‘Cuban Missile Crisis’ Cont. on Page 3 Pinot Blanc, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Grigio wines, have developed a new hybrid grape that acts as an anti-diuretic.

‘Cuban Missile Crisis’ Cont. from Page 2 I soaked up every scrap of information over the decades about the Missile Crisis, perhaps in some sad way still trying to make sense of it, of all the fear I felt, of seeing grown men and women act in inexplicably nervous and frightened ways. I remember seeing empty store shelves as people stocked up while panic-buying supplies. When you scare a child--when you really frighten them down to their souls--you change that child forever. My interest (obsession?) with the event came and went over the years. I'd go for months at a time never even remembering it, like most folks. But every now and then something would jog my memory and I was four feet tall again, watching USAF jets break the sound barrier from my back yard, heading south. All of them, squadron after squadron in tight formation, day after day, all heading south as fast as they could go. Terrible, explosive sonic booms daily. I tell this to people today. The kind ones say that I was a "war child" even though there was no war. The rest say I'm nuts. They're probably both right. This hasn't been on my mind for a long time. I thought after the fall of the Soviet Union that all information about the near-end of the civilized world by human hands had been declassified and there was no more to know, no more to find out. I was wrong. The Cuban Missile Crisis was not over in thirteen days, regardless of what Bobby Kennedy thought when he wrote his insider book about the affair. Another nuclear threat was simmering and the United States had no idea that it existed. I'll give a link later on so you can read the new BBC News reports of what they just found out. It's bloodcurdling if you will stop and think about the possibilities. After the agreement between the U.S. and the Soviets, they pulled out their mid-range R12 missiles containing strategic nuclear weapons. Those were the ones we caught,
those were the ones our U-2s and fast recon jets filmed. The warheads were bigger, needing larger rockets to launch them. The Soviets removed them immediately, as per the agreement. We kept a close eye on them, even in those pre-satellite days. They kept their promise and dismantled them all, shipping them back to Russia. Each of those atomic bombs were eighty times more powerful than what we dropped on Hiroshima. Every one of them pre-targeted for an American city or strategic land target. What we DIDN'T know was there were exactly one hundred other missiles, smaller ones, that carried tactical nuclear weapons in Cuba that the Soviets had in place, ready to fire, camouflaged, and completely unknown to U.S. intelligence agencies. Their range was the same, only their warheads differed. They were several times the power of Hiroshima's "Little Boy," still enough to wreck a whole city. And we had no idea they were there, had ever been there, or were still there. The Soviets considered this for a while as America stood down. Finally it was determined that the Americans would attack in force if even one nuclear bomb landed on them, especially one from Cuba. They knew we would never give up, at least not under President Kennedy. If anything, it would be thought of as a Second Pearl Harbor and then God only knew how vicious the Americans would become. While obviously concerned with events in their own theater of operations, the Soviets were well aware of the nearrabid rage with which we fought the Japanese. Worse, missiles were not their only problem. We had better, longer range bombers. The Strategic Air Command kept a 24/7 combat air patrol at their fail-safe points, ready to plunge into Russia at a moment's notice via radio command. And the Chief of that command was Curtis LeMay, who burned most of Japan flat before we started dropping nukes on them, and now he was Air Force Chief of Staff and had argued
almost to the point of insubordination for a first strike against the Soviets from the first day of the Missile Crisis. It was still a very sensitive matter. Castro was beside himself with rage that the Soviets compromised with America, and that the strategic missiles in Cuba were being removed. He wanted to launch them, every one of them. The Soviets broke them down and were shipping them out of his country. Khrushchev decided to send his number-two man to Cuba to calm Castro. Anastas Mikoyan, the second in command of the Soviet hierarchy, flew to Cuba with the orders to appease Castro with a "consolation prize." The Soviets would give him independent command of those one hundred tactical nuclear missiles. Surely, they understood, he would use them only in defense if America broke its word and invaded the island. During negotiations, it became clear to Mikoyan that Castro was not entirely sane. He raved for hours on various subjects, sometimes American duplicity, sometimes Russian duplicity. In hurried memos telexed back to Moscow, Mikoyan told Khrushchev the truth--that Castro was dangerously mad and actually wanted a nuclear war between the superpowers. Somehow, perhaps, he thought Cuba would miss the worst of it if both superpowers went to war. A megalomaniac, he felt then that he could rule the entire Western Hemisphere. He was so crazy he actually scared the Russians. Mikoyan, meanwhile, had other problems. While in Cuba, he received word that his wife was dying back in Russia. With his powerful position, he could have begged off the mission and gone to her side. There is every indication theirs was a happy marriage and they loved each other deeply. But Mikoyan, knowing that millions of other lives depended on his success, stayed in Cuba. His wife would die before he made it home. This apparently somehow made up his mind. Despite his orders from "the boss," he
would see to it that Castro never got operational control of the nuclear missiles aimed at us, the ones that we never knew about. Using what the BBC called the "dark arts of diplomacy," he told Castro of an unknown--and non-existent-Soviet law that would not allow the keeping of Russian tactical weapons in a nation where they did not also have strategic weapons. In other words, he lied though his teeth. Castro went apoplectic and threatened to break all ties with the Soviet Union, which only convinced Mikoyan further of his utter madness. Gently, apologetically, Mikoyan asked him to not be so rash, that the Soviet Union would protect Cuba from afar, and also offer countless millions in economic support. It took hours, and several meetings, but the mercurial Castro finally agreed. The Russians decommissioned, dismantled, and shipped the one hundred missiles back home as quickly as possible, still being missed by American intelligence offices. We didn't know before. We didn't know afterwards. We never knew the nuclear bullets we dodged. The Executive Office, the Joint Chiefs, NORAD, the Strategic Air Command, the guy in the street--no one knew what had happened. No one had a clue. We were fat, dumb, and happy. And safe, thanks to the Soviet Union. I knew of two times that the USSR saved our asses due to false intelligence. This makes the third time. Whatever they are, whoever the Russians might be, they are not fools. And we owe them a debt of gratitude. But it must be remembered that America never fell--not yet--and our secrets could reveal as many or more times where we saved Russia. We just don't know. That's still classified.

Page 4 - October 25, 2012 Sex Registrant Arrested After SWAT Standoff for Registration Violation On Wednesday, October 17th, at approximately 9:20 AM, the Escondido Police Department received a call from members of the SAFE (Sexual Assault Felony Enforcement) Task Force regarding a subject who may be wanted for failing to update his sex registrant status. Members of SAFE believed that Miguel Angel Juarez was inside a residence in the 500 block of South Spruce Street in Escondido. Shortly afterwards, the members of SAFE observed a male subject enter the residence holding what they believed was an assault rifle. Officers from the police department responded and surrounded the residence. Attempts were made to contact the occupants inside the residence. After a short period of time, two people came out of the house, onto the porch, and were given directions by officers. One of the
Local News subjects attempted to flee on foot, but was apprehended quickly by officers. That subject was later identified as David Betancort. It was later determined that Betancort was the subject with the rifle. The second subject was detained without incident and later released. Information obtained from the people detained led police to believe that two other subjects were still inside the house. Neither subject was responding to police attempts to make contact. Based on the circumstances of a possible rifle being involved, the Escondido Police Department SWAT was mobilized and responded to the scene. At about 1:30 PM, messages were broadcast via loudspeaker to the occupants of the house to come outside. One of the people inside complied and was taken into custody without incident. The second subject did not respond to request for his surrender. SWAT deployed light/sound diversionary devices outside of the residence and the sub-
ject exited and was taken into custody without incident. The following people were arrested as a result of this incident: 1) Miguel Angel Juarez/Saravia, 37 years old, of Escondido. He was charged with two misdemeanor warrants and Failure to Register as a Sex Offender. 2) Christopher David Sarenana, 24 years old, of Escondido. He was charged with a Probation Violation. 3) David Mata Betancort, 19 years old, of Escondido. He was charged with Violation of a Court Order, Gang Injunction. Betancort was the subject seen with the rifle. The gun was later determined to be an air soft rifle. All of the above listed subjects were booked into the Vista Detention Facility. Several hours later, a search warrant was served at the residence. Officers found one handgun that was disassembled and missing several important pieces and several air soft guns. Additionally, officers located a small quantiyou bought both, it was just $2. What Evelyn and I didn't realize was that we were only supposed to sell this stuff to the vendors as they set their booths and tents up - then head back to our booth to help sell hamburgers, etc. We were supposed to be back at our booth at 10am, the official start time for the Street Faire.

Man About Town Lots of really great people we meet are not only clients, but they become good friends as well. Such is the case with that beautiful blonde bombshell, Pam Rundle, Marketing Director for Silvergate Retirement Communities of both San Marcos and Fallbrook. She, her husband, Ken, and son Jake, manage to do a lot together. When not promoting the beautiful Silvergate retirement communities, the family manages to visit Sea World, Disneyland, Legoland, all kinds of fun places. I have a hunch
No wonder Pam is known far and wide for her always present smile. She’s got a great hubby, a handsome son, and a great job promoting a company she absolutely loves. ••••• We had our Escondido Street Faire Sunday and our Hidden Valley Kiwanis Club had a BBQ on Grand Avenue, the main drag through town. Sold lots of hamburgers, chili-burgers, cheeseburgers, hot dogs, chili . . . all kinds of good stuff. Evelyn and I, and another Kiwanian, Cassie Todd, took two wagons, one with hot coffee, one with cinnamon buns and headed out at about 9am to sell them . . . $1.50 for the cinnamon buns, $1 for the coffee but if
Around 11:30, a friendly cop told us we were not allowed to sell on the streets during the fair, had to stay in our own booth. So, we headed back to our booth but between the cop and our booth we must have sold at least a dozen cinnamon buns. People would stop us and demand we sell them some. I think we sold about $100 worth. All net profit. Annette, owner of Champion's Restaurant, bakes the cinnamon buns and donates them to the Kiwanis club . . . we sell them and keep the revenue as a fund raiser. Our funds are then disbursed, mostly to kids, some to Kiwanis International projects. The day started out with threatening weather . . . overcast, occasional rain falling . . . but then the sun would peep through the clouds and only a few misty drops . . . still, it kept the crowds down. Normally, 50,000, 60,000 is not uncommon. Perhaps 20,00030,000 today. Still, we made some money and got to see a lot of folks.

Since that time, the SAFE Task Force has been checking possible locations for his whereabouts. Rally For Escondido Chief of Police Jim Maher Draws Large Crowds About 40 supporters gathered outside Escondido City Council chambers last Wednesday to both show their support for Escondido Chief of Police, Jim Maher, and to demand that City Manager Clay Phillips be fired. Phillips placed Chief Maher on paid leave and suspended his operation as Chief while an investigation was launched into alleged improprieties within the department. One allegation suggests that Chief ‘Local News’ Cont. on Page 8 Stopped to chat with a lot of the vendors . . . chatted with our fellow Kiwanians. Our shift was 9am to noon. At noon, I came home and took a nap . . . Evelyn stayed on as she wanted to shop. (Evelyn always wants to shop!) We had some good laughs with Dave Geary, our president, who is from Boston and has a really heavy Bahstahn accent. He told us to take the wagons and sell the buns . . . but he pronounces wagons as waygans . . . kinda like 'pahkin' the cahs.' He works, works, works, night and day on a variety of fund raising promotions, mostly for Kiwanis, and we give him all kinds of teasing about his accent. Saw a lot of the political candidates and those promoting and/or against various propositions. Everyone was in good spirits and there was plenty of catching up to do with various people we'd run into. Though the street fair can and does draw a lot of people, it's still a lot like a small town fair where everyone comes to town and renews friendships . . . even making new friends. It's a lot of work . . . my feet are tired . . . but it's also a lot of fun. We've really got a great Kiwanis Club. It's fun to be part of this club . . . we do a lot of things together and accomplish some good things. And we have !

Letters to the Editor It’s Election Time! Another election, and Hal Martin political signs have again popped up around town. Termed out, Martin apparently craves continued self-affirmation by running for a new agency board with which he has no expertise. It is curious Martin feels the need to mislead the electorate by claiming to not be a politician. After sixteen years— albeit eminently ineffectual years—on the (San Marcos) city council, how could he not be considered a politician? Does he have such a low estimation of the electorate that he actually thinks he can thus deceive them?
ASPCA $100K Challenge. This includes adult dogs and cats, puppies and kittens, and rabbits. Adoption fees include spay/neuter; microchip with lifetime registration; up-to-date vaccinations; dog licensing (Escondido, San Marcos and Poway areas only); veterinary exam at EHS; wellness exam after adoption; sample bag of food; discounts at local pet supply, grooming and boarding partners; and behavior support for dogs and cats for lifetime of animal. EHS is the first and only S.D. County shelter, of 49 shelters participating nationwide, competing in the $100K Challenge that aims to get more dogs and cats adopted or returned to their owners. The shelter that achieves the greatest increase in lives saved from August 1 to October 31 will receive the grant from the ASPCA. EHS has adopted or reunited 798 dogs and cats since the Challenge began; and reached two milestones, setting a one-day record for adoptions (62) on August 1, and a one-month adoptions record in August (367).

Desmond doesn’t live in the district Martin wants to represent. It is unclear as to whether Mayor Desmond seeks to extend the influence of the city council into what has been an independent agency (to the benefit of both rate payers and tax payers) or if Martin hopes to continue pulling the mayor’s strings from a new power base.

In our view, Chief Maher should have called the two senior officers on the carpet, told them to knock it off and get back to work. He didn’t. He turned it over to Clay Phillips, the city manager.
Commentary Looking at Escondido’s city government, one is reminded of the catch phrase so often used in the the Laurel and Hardy movies . . .”well, that’s another fine mess you’ve gotten us into, Ollie . . .”
And then the charade began.
Escondido’s Chief of Police, Jim Maher, has been on a paid leave of absence for over a month “for his own protection,” and “so as not to impede the investigation.”
But, no. We pay our suspended Chief, who earns in the neighborhood of $150,000 a year, (that’s about $12,500 a month) to sit home and wonder, “what the hell happened?” We pay our City Manager around $225,800 a year to deal with problems like this. ($18,816.66 a month, plus benefits, plus pension.)
Never mind the fact that it was Chief Maher who brought to the attention of the city certain improprieties that were occurring within the department. A couple of senior cops exchanging emails on city computers and on city

‘Local News’ Cont. from Page 4 Maher was having an inappropriate relationship with a female city employee. Maher denies such a relationship and says that, in fact, the female employee in question is a good friend of his wife. Others claim that Phillips is out to get Maher and was embarrassed when Maher refused to accept a raise while officers under his command had taken pay cuts. Once the police negotiations were complete, Maher agreed to accept his raise. This, critics argue, embarrassed Phillips and he was just looking for a good excuse to terminate Maher. Maher is an “at will” employee so, technically, Phillps has the power to terminate him. As a practical matter, however, observers suggest that if Phillips were to do so without the solid backing of the council, he’d be run out of town, by both the council and the voters. Other rumors claim that Phillips has the solid backing of Mayor Sam Abed. How much support Phillips has with the rest of the council is subject to conjecure. Maher’s wife, Eva, says the problem developed when Maher refused the raise and that she believes this is the issue Phillips hopes to use to terminate her husband. Council members all say they cannot intervene while the investigation is underway. While the council members also say it’s a city manager/council form of government, where the city manager hires and fires all personnel and the council only hired the city manager
and city attorney, observers point out the a city manager who took the unilateral action of terminating a key employee without the firm knowledge that he had at least three votes on the council to back him up, would likely not last long. Critics argue that Mayor Abed’s statement that “it is the city manager’s job to hire and fire,” is only a smoke screen, that Abed will back Phillips in a move to oust Maher. Maher has said city officials told him the decision was made to place him on paid leave because his presence at Police Department headquarters could compromise the investigation into the behavior of the two employees, both of whom are senior police officers. Critics have said it seems unorthodox to place Maher on leave and let the two officers stay on the job. Supporters say Maher has been a great chief because crime has dropped during his tenure and because traffic safety checkpoints he launched have sharply reduced hit-and-run crashes. Clay Phillips is no stranger to controversy. Escondido residents raised an uproar earlier this year when Phillips, after negotiating pay concessions from most city workers, quietly gave large raises to his top managers, all of whom already earned over $100,000, which ranged from 9 percent to 24.3 percent. 150 of

The San Diego County Sheriff's Department and FBI had asked for your help in identifying the so-called "Chubby Bandit." He was wanted in connection with four robberies in Poway, Solana Beach, Encinitas and Carlsbad from October 9th to 16th. The "Chubby Bandit" had used a demand note and made verbal demands during his robberies. He has also verbally threatened and gestured to have a gun during his robberies. No one was hurt. Aaron Alan Hyman, 27, was taken into custody near state Route 78 and El Camino Real, FBI spokesman Darrell Foxworth reported. Foxworth said a sheriff’s deputy given a bank surveillance photo of the bandit realized he knew the man from prior contacts. Carlsbad police also identified him. He was arrested by Carlsbad officers working with the FBI and sheriff’s deputies, Foxworth said. He was booked into the Vista Detention Facility on robbery charges.

Rancho Bernardo • Mayor Jerry Sanders Over the past several years, the City of San Diego has made significant progress in expanding construction contract opportunities to small local businesses. In the 2012 fiscal year, 24 percent of our capital-improvement construction projects – such as watermain replacements and building repairs – went to small local companies. This was nearly double the amount from the previous year, and up eight fold when compared to 2008. We’ve made it a top priority to level the playing field for these
small contractors, and we’re seeing the results. When these small businesses do well, it helps the entire San Diego economy, given that small local businesses usually hire local workers. These results are due to the success of a number of initiatives, including San Diego’s Small Local Business Program, which was created in 2010 and established incentives for large contractors to hire city-certified small companies as sub-contractors. Ensuring that San Diego jobs go to San Diegans is a key towards recovery. When these jobs help improve our city and quality of life, everybody benefits.
Vista • Mayor Judy Ritter Halloween is a fun time of the year and everyone wants a safe and happy Halloween for themselves and especially their children. Using safety tips and common sense can help make the most of the upcoming Halloween night. Following are tips to keep children and adults safe on Halloween, when accidents and injuries are more likely to occur. • Welcome trick-or-treaters with porch lights and any exterior lights on. • Do not give homemade or unwrapped treats to children. • Use extreme caution when driving a vehicle. Be on the alert for excited youngsters darting out
into traffic or whose vision may be obscured by masks or costumers. • Costumes should be flame retardant so children aren't in danger near burning jack-olanterns. • Keep costumes short to prevent trips, falls, and other bumps in the night. • Try make-up instead of a mask. Masks can obstruct a child's vision, a dangerous thing when kids are crossing streets and going up and down steps. • Make sure kids wear light colors or put reflective tape on their costumes to make them more visible. Enjoy your Halloween fun and treats!
As you get ready for trick-or-treating this Halloween, please keep in mind these safety reminders: • Purchase only costumes, wigs and props labeled flame-resistant or flame-retardant. • If your child is wearing a mask, make sure the eyeholes are large enough so they can see out. • Provide children with lightweight flashlights to carry for lighting. • Keep dried flowers, cornstalks and other decorations away from all open flame and heat sources.
• Remember to keep exits clear of decorations, ensuring nothing blocks escape routes • Use flashlights or battery-operated candles when illuminating Jacko-lanterns • Do not allow children to carry sharp sticks or other objects that could cause injury • When in doubt, throw it out— closely inspect all candy before allowing children to eat it. Discard any unwrapped treats from a stranger. • Young children should be accompanied by a trusted adult and walk from house to house on sidewalks when available. Halloween should be fun and safe for everyone and planning ahead can help make the festivities safe.

Is My Old PC Worth Fixing or Should I Buy a New One? It doesn’t cost anything to find out at The Computer Factory. Each week folks lug their sick desktop and notebook PCs into our shop and ask the above question. The answer depends on a combination of factors, how old is it, what would it be worth if were operating perfectly, what would it cost to make it operate perfectly, how do you use it and how important are the old programs and data. Then compare those factors with how much a new PC will cost, how much the old PC is worth as a trade-in and what will it cost to transfer files and pictures from the old PC to a new one. A six or seven-year old desktop PC with Widows XP, an eighty GB hard drive, two GB of RAM and a
100% Supportive of Economic Investment California’s tax policies are stifling economic growth. Just ask Greg Lucier, Chairman of the Board at Life Technologies, a global biotechnology company located in Carlsbad. In a recent North County Times article, Lucier wrote the, “state of California has got to right itself and reverse a nearly decade-long streak of worst places to do business rankings.” To counter the persistent badfor-business labels, some legislators are dedicated to restoring California’s business climate by reducing taxes and promoting economic investment. My Republican colleagues and I regularly support legislation aligned with the goals of economic growth and fewer taxes. Our 2012 track record is sum-
DVD-R/W, cleaned up and optimized, is worth $150 to $200. A PC configured as above can easily perform mainstream activities like Internet browsing, movies, streaming downloads, Turbo Tax, Quick Books, Word, Excel Power Point, Photo Shop, Family Tree Maker etc. If the costs is less than $150 to get a six-year-old PC repaired and optimized it may be worth doing. Sometimes old computers with little or no re-sale value are extremely valuable to the user because of data or programs on the hard drive. An old computer that runs a CNC (computer numerical control) program for industrial tools may be worth spending a lot of money to repair if it means the user can avoid buying new applications costing thousands of dollars. Newer desktop PCs with XP, Vista or Win 7 can be worth $250 or more and may well be worth spending more than $150 to repair or upgrade.
hardware like RAM, hard drives, DVDs, keyboards, power supplies, video, audio, and even motherboards for desktop PCs is relatively inexpensive, but for notebook PCs, some of those items (and screens) are proprietary and expensive. Often customers choose to buy a new notebook rather replace a major notebook component but even a notebook that isn’t worth repairing usually has salvage value. When we accept a desktop or notebook trade-in, we upgrade the RAM, replace any problem components, install a clean operating system, load Microsoft Security
Essentials, Malwarebytes, an office suite, Adobe Reader, Flash, Nero and Power DVD. This week we have more than a dozen trade-in desktop and notebook PCs in-tip top condition that are perfect for school, home or business. Our new PC workstations (we build them here) start at under $500 and our ASUS notebooks at $525. Our notebooks and workstations are nothing like the Big Box store low-end retail offerings from Dell, HP, Gateway, Acer etc. New or used, our PCs coupled with our hands on customer service provide the best value anywhere.
When our customers opt to buy a new PC, rather than repair the old one, we typically offer them trade-in value for their old PC. Trade-ins can be used as cash discounts on new equipment or to cover the cost of upgrades or file transfers. Both desktop and notebook PCs are usually worth repairing if the problem is software. (Corrupt Windows, malware infection etc) or simple hardware problems. Replacing

High Gas Prices Hurting California’s Economy For Californians, filling up at the pump this month has been a much bigger drain on the wallet than usual. While San Diego gasoline prices have receded slightly to $4.64 from the all-time record of $4.73 earlier this month, they remain 50 cents higher than last month. Understandably, people have vented their frustrations at oil companies, hostile foreign governments, Washington politicians, gas station owners and anyone else they believe is responsible. State officials have pinned the blame on fuel supply disruptions resulting from a Northern California refinery fire in August and a power loss at a Southern California refinery.
But even accounting for that lost production, California’s average gas price of $4.58 per gallon is 78 cents higher than the national average of $3.80 per gallon. Other states have not suffered from the sticker shock that California has experienced. There is one primary reason for this – misguided state mandates make our gas more expensive than it should be. It is time for the state to reevaluate energy policies that arbitrarily restrict the supply of gasoline. We can create more supply and reduce gas prices for the long-term by changing regulations and introducing more supply of the type of fuel we use and by allowing for the construction of new refineries. California’s gas prices are the result of political choices, not circumstances beyond our control.

‘Cuban Missile Crisis’ Cont. from Page 3 http://www.bbc.co.uk/searc h/news/cuban_missile_crisis Remember if you will--if America went to war, we'd take all of NATO with us. And Russia would have brought in all of the Warsaw Pact. It would have literally been the heavyweight championship of the world. But we always knew where our guns would be pointed. Moscow never had that assurance. Love and Peace, Kent

crowns, he corrects occlusions and treats some TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint Disorders) and both his patients and staff rave about his personality and his talent. He actively seeks out continuing education and can often be found spending weekends at dental seminars and specialty classes. He has a bona fide thirst for knowledge and regularly applies that knowledge. One would have thought Greg Hurt, a descendant of the onetime Mayor of Nottingham, England, would become a farmer. Born in Spencer, Iowa, his father was a farmboy from Dickens, Iowa . . a village of 2530 people. Dad was mechanically oriented, artistic, and precise. Talents that would lead him into flying. Mom was a beauty queen, coming in as runner-up in a competition for Miss Iowa. Through a strange series of events and moves (living in 15 different states by the time he was 15 years of age) Dr. Greg Hurt has established himself as a brilliant and succesful dentist. And it all happened because of the father of one of his classmates. You just never know.

Lee Trevino: A true story; you gotta love him...
Saint Peter addresses this cool guy, 'Who are you, so that I may know whether or not to admit you to the Kingdom of Heaven? ' The guy replies, 'I'm Jack, retired airline pilot from Houston.'
One day, shortly after joining the PGA tour in 1965, Lee Trevino, a professional golfer and married man, was at his home in Dallas, Texas, mowing the front lawn, as he always did. A lady driving by in a big, shiny Cadillac stopped in front of his house, lowered the window and asked, "Excuse me, do you speak English?" Lee responded, "Yes Ma'am, I do." The lady then asked, "What do you charge to do yard work?" Lee said, "Well, the lady in this house lets me sleep with her." The lady hurriedly put the car in gear and sped off.
Saint Peter consults his list. He smiles and says to the pilot, 'Take this silken robe and golden staff and enter the Kingdom.' The pilot goes into Heaven with his robe and staff. Next, it's the priest's turn. He stands erect and booms out, 'I am Father Bob, pastor of Saint Mary's for the last 43 years.' Saint Peter consults his list. He says to the priest, 'Take this cotton robe and wooden staff and enter the Kingdom. 'Just a minute,' says the good father. 'That man was a pilot and he gets a silken robe and golden staff and I get only cotton and wood. How can this be? 'Up here - we go by results,' says Saint Peter. 'When you preached - people slept. When he flew, people prayed.'

COLONOSCOPY I went into my proctologist's office for my first rectal exam. His new nurse, Suzie, took me to an examining room and told me to get undressed and have a seat until the doctor could see me. She said that he would only be a few minutes. After putting on the gown that she gave me I sat down. While waiting I observed that there were three items on a stand next to the exam table: A Tube of K-Y jelly, A rubber glove And a beer .

When the doctor finally came in I said, "Look Doc, I'm a little confused this is my first exam .. I know what the K-Y is for and I know what the glove is for, but can you tell me what the BEER is for? At that Doctor Paul became noticeably outraged and stormed over to the door. He flung the door open and yelled to his nurse .. . . . . . Dang it I said a BUTT LIGHT!
