by lyle e davis Those of us who served our nation as a member of any of the military organizations may not be aware of what great benefits are still available to us through the Veteran’s Administration. I found out by accident. A neighbor of mine, Sy Okun, was active with the VFW and the American Legion. He also handled all types of veteran’s affairs through the VA. He told me what I was eligible for and, lo and behold! He was right! I checked with the VA and soon had a pair of $4400 hearing aids. My cost? $150! Not a bad deal. All you need do is, if you were a member of the military for more than 90 days, check with your local Veteran’s Administration office. They will soon be able to determine your eligibility. Obviously, service connected disabilities are top priority. That is as it should be. But most, if not all, of us are eligible for some degree of coverage. I have fallen in love with the Veteran’s Administration Clinic in Oceanside. Not only with the physical building and facilities, but even more, with its people. Seems like they are always smiling and eager to help. Top professionals in ever sense of the word. My first encounter there was with Big John Spain, the always smiling, always cordial and polite, receptionist at the Audiology Clinic. Originally from Richmond, Virginia, John exudes that Southern Charm. John served as a

Some bad press because of problems elsewhere in the nation . . . yet, here, everything runs smooth as can be, and every bit as professional as any of the finest medical facilities in the private sector.” I decided that you, our readers, need to know how wonderful these folks are, what great medical treatment is available to you, and how you can get in on the act.

All other departments at the Oceanside VA Clinic, however, we found had zero wait lists and patients can be seen promptly . . . and are. Recently, we took a tour of the complete facility. Amazing! State of the art; spotlessly clean . . . and lots of

Timely service? If I have a 9am appointment . . . I’m seen between 9am and 9:15. No unnecessary waiting. Even on walk-in service, which is available for hearing aid issues, I get very prompt service. Yes, there are some areas within VA where there are waiting periods. The Mohs Surgical Procedure for removing skin cancers for example, does have about a four month wait list. That is simply a factor of suppy and plus the fact it is a new program at the clinic. The technique itself is a fairly new one as well, so you have more patients that need the surgery than you

When the girls get their bill, out come the pocket calculators. MONEY A man will pay $2 for a $1 item he needs. A woman will pay $1 for a $2 item that she doesn't need but it's on sale. BATHROOMS A man has six items in his bathroom: toothbrush and toothpaste, shaving cream, razor, a bar of soap, and a towel. The average number of items in the typical woman's bathroom is 337. A man would not be able to identify more than 20 of these items. ARGUMENTS A woman has the last word in any argument. Anything a man says after that is the beginning of a new argument.

a way of saying thanks. That pervasive feeling of service permeates the atmosphere at the VA Clinic in Oceanside. Arranging our tour of the facility, and also wearing a big smile, was the Clinical Service Director, Karen McKinsey, an RN who retired from the Navy, after 26 years . . . and, fortunately for us, decided to extend her career by coming on board the good ship band. A man never worries about the future until he gets a wife. MARRIAGE A woman marries a man expecting he will change, but he doesn't. A man marries a woman expecting that she won't change, but she does.

Oceanside VA Clinic. Karen was kind enough to assign us a tour guide - a young man who is a veteran of several tours of duty to Iraq and Afghanistan, Chad Artesi. Chad gave us the royal treatment and walked us around the facility, introduced us to staff, answered our questions, and even put up with me calling him by the wrong name on several occasions.

DRESSING UP A woman will dress up to go shopping, water the plants, empty the trash, answer the phone, read a book, and get the mail. A man will dress up for weddings and funerals.

It was assumed that Guido would hear nothing so he would not have to testify in court.

‘Welcome Home, Veterans!’ Cont. from Page 2 As Chad led us into the Primary Care department, we met a fascinating lady (yes, she had a big smile, too) from Panama.

With the great pension she will have earned in government service, she will enjoy a well deserved retirement.

We next got to meet one of the Clinic’s big stars, Dr. Katherine Wong, a Doctor of Optometry, who has been with the VA for 12 years. Dr. Wong has been the recipient of many awards for her contribution to her profession. A native of Golden, Colorado, she works in the Dermatology and Optometric area of the Clinic and, needless to say, also had a ready smile for us.

We were alerted that a Doctor of Internal Medicine was available to chat with us so we quickly moved over to the Internal Medicine department and met Dr. Kristin Bell, who studied medicine at the University of Chicago. She has been with the VA for 12 years.

After a nice visit, Chad showed us all the exam rooms in the Primary Care Department. Plenty of spacious, comfortable rooms for patients and their health providers to go over their cases and determine the best and most efficient treatment.

Dr. Katherine Wong, Optometrist, VA Clinic, Oceanside Close by, while visiting the GYN Department, we met Teresa J. Oldham, a nurse, but with administrative duties as the Specialty Clinic Coordinator. Originally from Kentucky, she’s only been with the VA for one year, but has 28 years as a nurse, four of which were as an Army nurse. We found out we had some things in common. She took some of her training at Brooke Army Medical Center, Fort Sam Houston, Texas . . and I spent two years there as well. She also served with the

John Kenny, Laboratory Services Chief Chad suggested we meet the head of the Laboratory next. John Kenny has been with the VA for 10 years . . . but at the top of his list of accomplishments is his opening of the new laboratory at the Oceanside Clinic. He had been working in the VA office in Vista before the move was made. The laboratory is spotless, as you would expect. Well organized, operations flowing smoothly. Asked how he got into the profession, Kenny recalled he was in construction when a family member suggested he go to a local laboratory as a

After five years, you get totally new hearing aids and they are always state-of-the-art, top of the line. And now, under a new policy, those new hearing aids don’t even cost me $150. They are free!

Besides treating exisintg medical conditions, the VA Clinic also focuses on Wellness Issues . . . that is, keeping you healthy be education programs, by assisting you with learning aids that you can even use at home. We discussed this with Julie Weise, RN, who focuses on the TeleMOVE! program. (Her photo does not appear as she did not want it taken). This is a weight/health program that helps to promote proper diet, exercise and other programs that the patient can program and monitor his/her progress at home . . . utilizing a computer-type piece of equipment that is easy to operate. Ms. Weise coordinates this entire program. As mentioned earlier, I became aware of and got involved with the VA because of a hearing loss. I investigated and found I was eligible for health care through the VA and, specifically, I would be able to secure hearing aids, exam, fitting, and supplying of the equipment, including batteries, at a fracton of the cost I would have had to pay within the private sector. My first set of hearing aids were $4400 in the private sector. They cost me $150. Our pup got ahold of the hearing aids several times and chewed them up. The VA didn’t blink. They repaired them. No charge.

During the tour, I found out from Chad that I may also be able to qualify for additional medical services. Optometry, for example. I was told I just need to see my primary doctor and s/he would refer me to optometry, or, if necessary, to an ophthalmologist. More great things to discover! The Oceanside VA Clinic is new, opening on May 26th of 2010. Located at 1300 Rancho del Oro Drive in Oceanside, the new $40 million building is two stories of gleaming glass and steel in Oceanside. It’s not far from the gates of Camp Pendleton. The facility is open Monday-Friday, from 7:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. You can reach them by phone at 760.643.2000. There are more than 235,266 veterans in the San Diego and Imperial Valley counties. You just might be the next one eligible for coverage. It’s worth looking into. To enroll, call (760) 643-2000. They’ll point you in the right direction to determine your eligibility. (It would help if you have your DD214 form available). If you served in the active military, naval or air service and are separated under any condition other than dishonorable, you may qualify for VA health care benefits.

Page 4 - September 13, 2012 Escondido Police Arrest Man Wanted on Warrants An Escondido Police Department traffic checkpoint nailed a man with a warrant for his arrest Friday night. Not only did he have a warrant but he was driving a stolen vehicle according to Lt. Tom Albergo. Police arrested the man ---who was also driving on a suspended license --- for auto theft, police Lt. Tom Albergo said in a statement Saturday. The man was already wanted on a warrant for possession of stolen property, Albergo said. 2,660 vehicles passed through the checkpoint, which was in the area of Lincoln Avenue and Fig Street. Another driver, an illegal alien, was arrested after he gave police conflicting information about his identity, Albergo said. Officers checked his fingerprints and found that he was driving on a suspended license, had previous drunken driving arrests and was in the country illegally, according to Lt.

Local News Albergo. The man was turned over to federal immigration officials. Nine citations were issued during the checkpoint, including 13 to unlicensed drivers. During the checkpoint, 12 vehicles were released to designated drivers. Four vehicles were impounded. Long Awaited Oceanside Hotel Planned For Next Summer An upscale $35 million hotel project, 1010 Oceanside, appears to have approval to move forward and is planning starting construction by next summer. Located on the edge of downtown Oceanside, the hotel would have 124 hotel rooms and 90 residential lofts, 432 parking spaces, a 4,600square-foot meeting room and a rooftop pool with ocean views, according to developer Hamid Nikkho of the Los Angeles based Amidi Real Estate Group. "It's going to be a very luxury building with all the ameni“Just think how nice it will be to look at it when you are all grown up and say, ‘There’s Jennifer, she’s a lawyer,’ or ‘That’s Michael, he’s a doctor.’” A small voice at the back of the room rang out, “And there’s the teacher, she’s dead.”

Man About Town Good pal, Dr. Steve Heilman, the always smiling chiropractor, he with the healing hands and the affable personality, told me a tale the other day about some kids in school. All of the kids in the class had been photographed, and the teacher was trying to persuade them each to buy a copy of the group picture.

I think when I chuckled I encouraged him as he went on . . . There were some other kids I heard about. The children were lined up in the cafeteria of a Catholic elementary school for lunch. At the head of the table was a large pile of apples. The nun made a note, and posted it on the apple tray: “Take only ONE. God is watching.” Moving further along the lunch line, at the other end of the table was a large pile of chocolate chip cookies. A child had written a note: “Take all you want. God is watching the apples.” Is it any wonder that Dr. Steve’s practice is growing? Not only does he give you pain relief . . . but he manages to tickle your funny bone as well.

ties you could imagine," Nikkho said last week. Both city and project officials expressed the solid belief that once people see these developments, people are going to be interested in coming back downtown and investing. The structure will take up an entire block bordered by Mission Avenue, Horne Street, Seagaze Drive and Clementine Street. The project is expected to provide 250 jobs during construction with 80 permanent jobs once it's completed. The Big hearted folks department: There’s a gal named Dawn Beattie who spends most of her time, and a lot of her and her husband’s money, rescuing dogs. Mostly Chihuahuas but any dog that needs a helping hand is likely to find it from Dawn and her hubby. Dawn heads up forgottenpaws.org and has dogs listed every week in The Paper (see page 10) looking for a ‘forever home.’ Currently, Dawn has yet another project. Most of the dogs she rescues are owner surrender. The most common reason she hears is due to moving and the new place will not allow pets. But Dawn has another problem with medical issues. She has a 13 year-old that was dumped at a shelter because of the medical issues. The owners either didn’t want to, or could not afford to, incur the necessary veterinary costs to take care of the dog. Dawn will spend somewhere between $1200 and $1500 to take care of the dog. Those are very scarce persona, but she will not let a wonderful dog roast in a

The Paper Endorsements For Vallecitos Water District of Director Seats

VALLECITOS WATER DISTRICT Board of Directors Division 5 Darrell W. Gentry - we have known Darrell Gentry for about 14 years, as a member of the San Marcos City Council, as a volunteer for Los Caballeros de Aventura, a youth diversion group, as a member of the Board of Directors for Division 5 of the Vallecitos Water District, since 2004. In ever single instance, Mr. Gentry has performed admirably. As an incumbent, he knows the job and its demands. He’s developed contacts that can make information flow much smoother. Low back pain can be a crippling experience. You might not be able to play golf, work, or even sit in the car for a 30-minute drive. And you may not be able to remember the last time you even had a restful night’s sleep. Life cannot be enjoyed to its fullest if you are suffering with low back pain or sciatica . . . that just will not go away! Do You Have any of the Following Conditions? • Sciatica • Lower Back Pain • Spinal Stenosis • Degenerative disc disease • Herniated or Bulging Discs • Facet Syndrome • Failed Back Surgery Fortunately, if you are suffering from any of these problems, your pain may be relieved or eliminated by non-surgical spinal decompression therapy. Far too many medical doctors believe your options are limited to bed rest, pain pills, exercises, steroid injections, and surgery. They are wrong! That’s because

He is President of DWG Consulting and has a Bachelors of Science degree in Urban Planning. A San Marcos resident for 20 plus years, he is a member and Past President of the San Marcos Kiwanis Club. A former City Council Member— City of San Marcos 1994-98. and of Planning—City of San Marcos 1978—1989 - with all this experience, we feel he is the most qualified for this position. We know and admire Hal Martin, one of the other candidates who is terming out as a San Marcos city councilmember. Martin has considerable savvy as an elected official. The third candidate, Mr. Patrick Knapp, is a member of the real estate profession. However, with all due respect to the other two candidates, in view of Darrell Gentry’s position as an incumbent, with his considerable knowledge of both the district, its needs and its demands, and having served as Board Chairman on two occasons, with his large array of contacts within the District, we strongly endorse Darrell W. Gentry for Districe 5 Director.

Commentary VALLECITOS WATER DISTRICT Board of Directors Division 1 We are endorsing Timothy M. Shell. Again, he is an incumbent, having served as a board member. He has an engineering background. We place a high value on incumbents as they have learned their jobs, they know the players, both fellow board members as well as staff. They have worked on policies together within the district and have a strong knowledge of the needs and direction the District needs to head. ‘Division 1’ Cont. on Page 7

Dr. Stephen Heilman Sincerely, Stephen Heilman, D. C. PS. One of the biggest myths about pain is that it will go away by itself, without any treatment. A study in the British Medical Journal found that myth to be untrue, showing that 75% of back pain sufferers -- who do not seek treatment -- will have either pain or disability 12 months later. Bottom line . . . if your pain has not gone away by now, it’s not likely to go away on its own. Life is too short to live in pain! Call 760.480-4480

‘Welcome Home, Veterans!’ Cont. from Page 3 tion of your enrollment status in the VA health care system. Are you eligible? Chances are, yes. If you answer these basic questions, you may be well on your way. Did you served in the active military, naval, or air service and were honorably discharged or released. Or, were/are you a Reservist or National Guard member and you were called to active duty by a Federal Order (for other than training purposes) and you completed the full call-up period? If you answer yes to either of these questions . . . you just might qualify for free or low cost health coverage. Karen McKinsey, the Clinical Service Director, said VA clinics in Vista and Escondido had been handling more than 54,000 outpatient visits a year. Now that it’s fully operational, the new clinic handles up to 100,000 outpatient visits annually. Each patient usually makes several visits a year.

“With the number of combat casualties coming back, and with the economy, a lot more beneficiaries actually want our services,” she said, “and if you look at the work load, the VA workload, especially San Diego, every year it’s gotten larger and larger.” Pulling it all together in San Diego County is the brand new Director/Chief Executive Officer for VA in San Diego, Jeffrey Gering. Mr. Gering arrived here in May of this year.

Jeffrey Gering, Director/Chief Executive Officer for VA in San Diego He’s been part of the VA since 1991, celebrating 22

years this October. He has a Masters degree in Hospital Administration and had previously served as Medical Center Director at Chilicothe, Ohio, for four years. A midwesterner, he grew up in St. Louis, attended Indiana University and St. Louis University for graudate school and post graduate work. As a young student he had an interest in healthcare, acquired a masters of science, in chemistry, biology, and also majored in business, so it all came together to suggest a career in hospital management. He also urges anyone who has ever been in military service to apply for VA healthcare coverage. Bring your DD214 (discharge papers), call or contact the VA via phone or website, make your application. If you qualify, you’re in for some absolutely superior medical coverage and treatment. As we hope this article points out, these folks are top notch and you’d be proud to have them look after you, your family, and loved ones. Good luck! And, THANK YOU for your service!

Page 10 - September 13, 2012 ‘Local News’ Cont. from Page 4 Crone sees restaurants and other new tenants if the City Council approves that proposal in a regular meeting scheduled for last night. As of press time, The Paper had not received word of the council’s vote. City officials and Crone both said the looser rules would create jobs, bring many neighborhoods a greater number of convenient dining choices, and help Escondido land businesses that might choose San Marcos or Rancho Bernardo instead. "I can't tell you how many times I've been unable to lease to a tenant because there wasn't enough parking," said Crone. The Escondido Planning Commission has unanimously endorsed the looser regulations because they were confident it would be of benefit to the community. A similar measure in downtown Escondido last year has paid dividends, with several new restaurants recently opened or expected to open soon. The change would have a minimal effect in the city's larger plazas, such as Westfield North County mall and the Dick's Sporting Goods plaza at Interstate 15 and Valley Parkway. Plazas larger than 3 acres have lower parking requirements based on the theory that parking is shared among a greater number of businesses and that customers are more likely to make multiple stops within the plaza, according to city officials. Two North County Churches Celebrate Their Ages Leaders at the First Baptist Church of Oceanside just celebrated the church's 125th birthday celebration this past weekend. The church, located at 240 Grace St. in Oceanside, had a reunion of sorts over the weekend . . . together with a festival all mixed in. First Baptist is thought to be the first Protestant church in Oceanside. The church opened in 1887 with nine people in a small home near the

General Montgomery is just a wee little man of almost 5 pounds and around 2 years of age. He loves his friends and plays chase with other pets, his ball or he will just sit with you and chill. Monty does very well with other pets and people … He is a perfect little gentleman ... oh so small! We call him Monty. He is crate trained and knows some basic commands. Like all our pups Monty is neutered and microchipped. His vaccines and rabies are all up to date. He comes with a full 4 piece safety equipment set, food for his transition and any favorite toys or bedding.

beach owned by T.C. Bunker. That house was known as the Bunker House, and later Traveler's Hotel on Cleveland Street. The church moved to several different locations over they years, finally moving to its present location at Grace and Maxson streets in 1957. City officials were present last weekend to help the church celebrate. Meanwhile, Escondido’s First Congregational Church will also be celebrating its 125th birthday, come September 25th. On September 25, 1887, the Congregational Church of Christ was incorporated and started with five members. Under the leadership of the Reverend M.A. Starr, funds were raised for the first building. This was a real achievement for the membership of 142, since at that time all building materials had to be imported from San Diego. The entire structure was built of wood frame and brick, and the steeple tower of the

Alpine is Pet of the Week at your Rancho Coastal Humane Society in Encinitas. He's a 1-1/2 year old, 15 pound, neutered, male, Blue Point cat. Alpine was adopted once before from Rancho Coastal Humane Society, but when his new family got him home they discovered that they're allergic to cats! That's not Alpine's fault, but it was enough that he ended up back in the RCHS cattery. He's a big, mellow guy, but he doesn't like the cattery so don't be surprised if he's hiding under his blanket when you come to adopt him. Alpine's adoption fee of $145 includes up to date vaccines, veterinary exam, neuter, and microchip. Meet Alpine at Rancho Coastal Humane Society, 389 Requeza Street in Encinitas. Adoption hours are 11 to 5 Wednesday through Monday. For more information call 760-753-6413.

church remained one of the highest points in town for many years. The new hitching posts were also a prominent feature. The building was dedicated on Sunday, June 26, 1898, and remained in continuous use for sixty years. The first parsonage built for the minister in 1890 cost $435.00; and in 1910, plans were made for a new manse across Maple Street from the church. The church was closed for four months in 1918 by order of the Health Department in response to an outbreak of Spanish influenza, and all public meetings were canceled as well. Today, known as the First Congregational Church, its present location is 1800 N. Broadway. Services began at this location in July 1989, and the campus was dedicated October 8, 1989. The First Congregational Church of Escondido is one of the oldest congregations in the Southern California Conference of the United Church of Christ and continues to welcome visitors and new members to this day, 125 years after its incorporation.

Escondido • Mayor Sam Abed WoofStock! Join us for North County's Premier Pet Expo titled “The G R A N D WoofStock” which will be held in downtown Escondido on September 29, 2012 from 10 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. This FREE canine-friendly event features vendor booths offering unique dog related merchandise, flyball and agility demos.

Rancho Bernardo • Mayor Jerry Sanders Last week, San Diego won state approval to expand a highly-successful regional economic incentive program that to date has helped create over 7,300 new jobs in the region. In an effort to ensure that business expansion, attraction, and retention efforts continue and increase in San Diego, the San Diego Regional Enterprise Zone (SDREZ), a regional collaboration between the cities of San Diego, Chula Vista, National City and the Unified Port of San Diego, applied for and received approval from the State’s Housing and Community Development Department (HCD) to expand the

Enterprise Zone into northern and southern parts of the County. Businesses that operate in an Enterprise Zone can claim state tax credits for wages paid to employees as well as for purchasing certain manufacturing, data processing, and communications equipment. Enterprise Zones are one of the most valuable economic development tools we have. Approximately 920 local companies have used the program to hire thousands of local workers.Governor Brown has indicated he might change the program. I hope the folks in Sacramento remember that but for the Enterprise Zone, California might not have been successful in getting many businesses to build or expand operations here.

Vista • Mayor Judy Ritter As summer turns to autumn, and we settle in for yet another change of season, I hope we can all take time to appreciate what a wonderful place Vista is to live, work, and raise a family. Personally, I am thankful for the remarkable accomplishments together we have made in the past few years, with the addition of our new Sports Park for our youth teams, new fire stations for public safety, and the increase in the number of businesses opening or relocating to the city. All of these occurrences benefit us by enhancing our quality of life, increasing

job growth, or providing for a safer community. While other areas of the country are heading into colder months, we still have beautiful weather locally, and I hope you are able to enjoy the countless outdoor amenities Vista has to offer. There is still time to experience an entertaining evening at the beautiful outdoor Moonlight Amphitheatre; tickets are on sale for the final summer performance, Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street which runs from September 19 through October 6. Tickets are on sale at moonlightstage.com or by calling the VisTix Box Office at 760.724.2110.

Oceanside • Mayor Jim Wood New Solar Energy Facility The City of Oceanside just broke ground on a new solar energy facility on Thursday, August 30. This project will produce a renewable source of energy for the San Luis Rey Water Reclamation Facility that is both cost-effective and reliable. Once completed, the improvements will generate more than $1.6 million in savings for our City ratepayers over the next 20 years. This one-megawatt solar project will generate approximately 25 percent of the San Luis Rey Water Reclamation Facility’s electricity demand,

which is outstanding. Through a power purchase agreement, the City will purchase electricity at rates competitive with those offered by the regional utility and will own the renewable energy credits associated with the project. SunPower Corp., a global solar technology company based in California, will design and build this facility on approximately 10 acres of City land that is adjacent to the SLRWR Facility and install SunPower T0 Trackers, which track the sun during the day, enhancing energy capture up to 25 percent over conventional fixed-tilt systems. Oceanside – going green with reliable renewable energy!


Page 12 - September 13, 2012 are permitted to build new PCs with Windows XP and anyone purchasing a PC with a license for Vista Pro or Win 7 Pro is permitted to exercise “Downgrade Rights” and install Windows XP Pro at no additional cost.

Nome and Paul Van Middlesworth thecomputerfactoryltd.com The Computer Factory Operating Systems- Past, Present and Future

WIN 7 passes XP. The market share for each operating system is determined by sampling which operating system is being used by PCs accessing the Internet. In August, Windows XP’s decade long dominance ended. Windows 7 scored 44.76%, Windows XP 44.22%. Windows Vista’s share at 6.1% barely above the 6% presence of Apple’s three co-existing operating systems combined. Microsoft forced Major brand PC sellers (Dell, HP/Compaq, Gateway etc) to stop selling XP and install Windows Vista (2007-2009) and Windows 7 (2009-present). There are some exceptions. Small PC producers (like The Computer Factory)

ADA Bill Helps Businesses

During the final month of session, 899 bills passed the legislature, but few helped businesses. Legislation to improve California’s economic climate has not been the majority party’s priority. However, on the last day of session one bill passed that will provide needed relief for businesses: Senate Bill 1186. SB 1186 will help businesses protect themselves against lawsuits and fines for not complying with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Many attorneys exploit money from businesses that are not strictly in compliance with the ADA. And, as new rules are regularly added, it is difficult for businesses to keep up-to-date with the latest ADA requirements.

The majority of home and small business users who bought PCs since 2007 have Vista or Win 7. Most large corporate users still run windows XP, even on their newest PCs. These users have been slow to adopt Win 7 simply because the upgrade would require hardware upgrades to older PCs. Many expensive application software packages specifically designed to support a particular industry are designed for 32bit Windows XP. Moving to 64bit Windows 7 often requires purchasing expensive new software. Most businesses have opted to defer the expenses associated with moving to Win 7 as long as Win XP provides a practical alternative.

Microsoft hopes that Win 8 will create a common interface for PCs, tablets and smart phones boosting its opportunities in tablet and smart-phone hardware, software and applications sales. Customers ask if we think they should wait for Win 8’s release to buy a new PC. Here are three reasons not to wait. Touch screen capability is a non-feature for most of us. Though Win 8 is basically Win 7 it’s still not a good idea to adopt any new OS in the first six months of its life. In our opinion Microsoft is so bent on promoting Win 8 because of its potential to affect Microsoft’s tablet and smart-phone business that they will be offering free upgrades early in 2013. Our recommendations for operating system upgrades depends

on the situation. If you have an XP PC don’t consider “upgrading” your OS. Both Vista and Win 7 will simply slow you down. If you need better performance try a hard drive clean up or upgrading RAM, hard drive and/or video. If your PC has Windows Vista, a “downgrade” to Win XP or an upgrade to Win 7 will both improve performance. Downgrading to XP will cost less and give a bigger performance boost but XP device drivers for some Vista PCs may not be available.

Microsoft will end full support for Win XP in April 2014. Most corporations plan to upgrade to Windows 7 by the support expiration date.

Sacramento Continues to Waste Money Each week, another news story highlights the culture of corruption and incompetence in Sacramento. Given the condition of our economy, it’s senseless that the state continues to waste our money in a number of ways. The scandal in the California Department of Parks and Recreation over a hidden stash of $54 million in taxpayer dollars has reverberated across the state. Several months prior, state officials had threatened to close 70 state parks unless taxes were raised. Yet Department bureaucrats failed to report they had more than enough money to keep all our parks open. The media also uncovered that Parks staff were allowed to participate in a controversial vacation buyout pro-

gram, costing taxpayers $271,000 between May and July 2011. These wasted dollars padded the bank accounts of staff instead of going to support our parks. Despite scandals like these, some in Sacramento are demanding higher taxes from Californians. I believe we can support critically important services such as public safety and education with the money Sacramento already takes from the citizens. The problem is that lawmakers and bureaucrats find new ways to spend those dollars on questionable priorities and then demand higher taxes when they run short of money. Sacramento should focus on controlling and prioritizing it’s spending, not asking for more tax dollars when they’ve demonstrated they can’t manage what they have.

North County Singles Scene

Kathy B. We are truly fortunate to live here in North County San Diego. There are so many wonderful places to explore and things to do! However, those of us who are waging the battle of the bulge may perceive some difficulties while trying to be active in the Singles community because we feel “lesser than” or unattractive. When in fact there are more “chubbies,” just like us, than we realize. That being said, the options available to us for getting together in singles

groups and get moderately active while doing so are ever expanding. Greg Minor, our local exercise guru, has been such a true inspiration to me. Both he and his beautiful wife, India, bicycle to many of their meetings. They ride their bikes even when they have appointments in Del Mar. My favorite spot to hang out and get some exercise is our local San Diego Wild Animal Park (Safari). It’s close by, is home to so many wonderful animals to gawk at and provides 1800 beautiful acres to explore. Now that the weather is cooling down, it seems to be the perfect time to take advantage of this local marvel. I really love the fact that they have membership packages for under $100/year which can be used for entrance to both the Zoo and The Safari Park. Please say hello if you pass by me as I’m walking the trails trying to lose the poundage.

Smoking . . . a Terrible Habit - that You CAN Quit

Through the utilization of social media networks, the Chase Community Giving program has already directed more than $20 million dollars toward charities nationwide, putting the power to bring positive change across the nation into the hands of those who need it most.

About 15 or 20 years ago I was a two to three pack a day smoker of cigarettes. (That’s when you really know you’ve quite smoking . . . when you can’t remember the exact year you stopped)

“Receiving even $10,000 would be an unbelievable opportunity to ensure the great work of this organization continues in San Marcos,” said Boys & Girls Club of San Marcos Chief Executive Officer, Shelly Anguiano Figueroa. The top eligible charity receives $250,000 and the remaining 195 top charities earn $10,000 through $100,000 awards, for a total of $5 million dollars in grants. How You Can Help You can help Boys & Girls Club of San Marcos receive up to $250,000 by simply visiting Facebook.com/ChaseCommuni tyGiving and casting your vote! Questions?

I had quit four or five times, for three, four, sometimes five weeks. One time I had quit for six months . . . then, on a transatlantic flight on BOAC (British Overseas Airways Corporation, now merged into British Airways) they were giving away free Rothmann cigarettes. I figured I had quit . . . so I tried one. And then another, and then . . . well, you get the picture. Finally, after years of cursing at myself and my lack of will power, I turned to hypnosis. I had heard a fella on radio being interviewed; he was a hypnotist and he made sense. I called him and booked an appointment. That was 15-20 years ago. I

and complete the original Project to its full potential. A redundant conveyance system does not work if there is no more water to convey.

Water Issues Dear Editor: With regard to Mr. Elias’s article on the proposed tunnel plan, he opined that something is better than nothing addressing the critical California water situation. Unfortunately, with Sacramento’s obsession with higher taxes , political control and special interest spending, the prospects are not promising. The California Water Project was only 60% completed. The key missing component: reservoirs. Southern California’s problem is that rain can be 4 inches one year and 40 the next. In good years, the excess flows to the sea wasted. The first priority should be to conserve water don’t rmember exactly when. Suffice to say . . . I no longer smoke . . . thanks to hypnosis. Food tastes better, I smell a heck of a lot better, and I’ve saved a lot of money (Cigarettes today cost $5 a pack?!) I’m not alone. In the past decade more than 100,000 smokers have quit. Hypnosis just might be able to help you. And it’s easy. One hour in a comfortable chair with a trained hypnotist and . . . can you believe it? You will no longer smoke? Well, that’s the offer made by a North County hypnotist, Dr. Ginger Marable, PHD, CHt. She offers a hypnosis session of one hour that will free you of smoking forever. Her system has a scientifically documented 95% success rate and she offers a lifetime guarantee. Same deal I had. If you start smoking again, you get another consultation at no charge. For details, give her a call. Dr. Ginger Marable, 760-420-2279 or go to

her website at www.AbsolutelySmokeFree.com.

Drawing down the Delta further may not be viable during droughts. Sacramento proposes establishing still another layer upon existing layers of expensive, unelected bureaucracy which can dictate water to insider gain without ratepayer recourse. San Diego water districts are already suing the MWD for overcharges. Can we trust Sacramento appointees to be above politics? The writer is correct that controlled water releases will be an environmental benefit. Large reservoirs can become parks and wildlife habitat. Man can live symbiotically with nature. /s/Michael Hunsaker San Marcos Bill Ballance Cover Story I was extremely pleased to see a photo of the late Bill Ballance on the cover of The Paper this morning. I picked up a copy and read every word. Bill Ballance was someone who was expert in expressing intellectual cleverness, something I've always admired. He was smart and funny and quick. I loved his radio show and his LA-based television show. Even today, later in my life, I can think of only a handful of people who have so impressed me with their intellect and wit the way Bill Ballance did. I really enjoyed reading the article very much. A bright spark from a better, vanished time. /s/Gordon Wagner Rancho Bernardo

The lawyer signs to Guido, "He'll kill you if you don't tell him." Guido trembles and signs, "OK! You win!

‘Commentary’ Cont. from Page 5 Last week, however, a patron of the Carlsbad Senior Center as well as the driver for The Paper were rudely informed by the secretary of Sue Spickard, the Center Manager, thatThe Paper was not welcome at the Center. According to witnesses, the secretary was upset because she had seen the photo art for the cover story dealing with the Sikhs and went ballistic. Witnesses say she was yelling about “sheiks,” (which is not a Sikh title,) “bedsheets,” (a pejorative term for anyone who is Arabic or, in the case of Sikhs, Indian,) and “political agenda.” The Paper has no political agenda involving Sikhs. This story was run by us in recognition of the terrible tragedy in Wisconsin where Sikhs were murdered. We felt our readers deserved to know more about the Sikhs that were murdered. It was not a religious story in the sense of us prosletizing for the Sikh faith. It was an indepth article explaining who the Sikhs are, and what they believe.

Mary K. Schroeder, 90, of Escondido, CA., passed away on September 9, 2012.

Arrangements by California Funeral Alternatives Escondido and Poway We think this is outrageous behavior, for the secretary of the manager of a Senior Center to decide what you can read, and what you can’t. You have a right to read information about your world, about your community. To date, there have been no apologies to either the patron or our driver. Fine. We’ll stop delivering The Paper to the Carlsbad Senior Center. We believe, however, that the City of Carlsbad should be concerned about one of its employees trying to determine news content that members of its community are allowed to read. That is pure censorship and should not be allowed.
