by lyle e davis Remember when you and I were kids? Every time we’d cut our finger or foot, every time we’d get a scratch on a piece of barbed wire, how someone, usually mom or dad, certainly a teacher or a school nurse, would say ... “you get right to the doctor and get a tetanus shot. Do you want to get lockjaw?” That’s what they called tetanus in those days: lockjaw. And because of those who cared, lockjaw, or tetanus, is almost unheard of in America today. Not so in much of the rest of the world. In many thirdworld and undeveloped countries, tetanus remains a major problem. Of particular concern to a lot of us is something called maternal neonatal tetanus, or, MNT. This form of tetanus is vicious. It causes new born The Paper - 760.747.7119

babies to suffer excruciating pain; so much so that the mother is unable to hold, not even able to touch, or kiss, her child. The touch is way too painful. Chances are, the baby will die . . . but only after enduring agonizing pain. Chances are mom will die as well. Tetanus is a rare but often fatal disease that affects the central nervous system by causing painful muscular contractions. It begins when tetanus bacteria enter the body, usually through a wound or cut exposed to contaminated soil. Tetanus is easily preventable through vaccination. Tetanus causes convulsive muscle spasms and rigidity that can lead to respiratory paralysis and death. It is sometimes called "lockjaw" because one of the most common symptoms is a stiff jaw, unable to be opened.
Sometimes, tetanus affects only the part of the body where the infection began, but in almost all of reported cases, it spreads to the entire body. The incubation period from the time of the injury until the first symptoms appear ranges from two to 50 days. When symptoms occur early, the chance of death is increased. Tetanus is not contagious. Tetanus is caused by a bacteria called Clostridium tetani, whose spores (the dormant form) are found in soil, street dust, and animal (or even human) feces. Tetanus spores germinate in the body, producing a highly poisonous neurotoxin in the blood, spreading to the nervous system. The infection is usually transmitted through deep puncture wounds or cuts or scratches that are not cleaned well. Thus the warnings by what appeared at the time to be overzealous parents, nurses and/or doctors. They
wanted to prevent you from enduring all this pain. And death. In the underdeveloped world, neonatal tetanus accounts for about one-half of tetanus deaths and is related to infection of the umbilical stump in a baby born of an unimmunized mother. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimate that over 270,000 deaths occur annually worldwide as a result of neonatal tetanus. In contrast, only two cases of neonatal tetanus in the United States were reported to the CDC between 1989 and 1999. Mothers who have been adequately immunized against tetanus protect their newborns by passing the antibody through the placenta. Early diagnosis and treatment is crucial to recovery from tetanus. Tetanus is a life-threatening

Treatment can take several weeks and includes antibiotics to kill the bacteria and shots of antitoxin to neutralize the toxin. It also includes muscle-relaxing drugs to control muscle spasms or barbiturates for sedation. In severe cases, patients are placed on an artificial respirator. Recovery can take six weeks or more. After recovery, since the levels of circulating toxin are too low to stimulate natural antibody production, the patient must still be immunized against this disease to prevent reinfection. Up to 30% of tetanus victims in the United States die. Early diagnosis and treatment improves the prognosis. Neonatal tetanus has a mortality rate of more than 90%. Tetanus is easily preventable through vaccination. All children should have a series of five doses of DTaP, a combined vaccine that offers protection against diphtheria,

This week, a compendium of wit, wisdom and neat stuff you can tell at parties. Enjoy! Practices During these serious and troubled times, people of all faiths should remember these four great religious truths: 1. Muslims do not recognize Jews as God's Chosen People. 2. Jews do not recognize Jesus as the Messiah. 3.Protestants do not recognize the Pope as the leader of the Christian world. 4. Baptists do not recognize each other at the liquor store or at Hooter’s.

tetanus, and pertussis, before the age of seven. Children will not be admitted to school without proof of this and other immunizations. The leading causes of maternal and neonatal tetanus deaths are: • lack of or limited access to immunization and pre and post-natal care services; • limited or absent clean delivery services; and • improper postpartum cord care. Once the disease is contracted, the fatality rate can be as high as 100 percent in underserved areas. The effects of the disease are excruciating— tiny newborns suffer repeated, painful convulsions and extreme sensitivity to light and touch. Each year, thousands of mothers and newborns are needlessly dying from maternal and neonatal tetanus. This horrifying but easily preventable disease kills one baby every nine minutes. It targets the poorest, most underserved women and children on Earth. But it can be eliminated. telling her class the story of the Good Samaritan. She asked the class, "If you saw a person lying on the roadside, all wounded and bleeding, what would you do?" A thoughtful little girl broke the hushed silence. "I think I'd throw up." Did Noah Fish? A Sunday school teacher asked, "Johnny, do you think Noah did a lot of fishing when he was on the Ark ?" "No," replied Johnny. "How could he, with just two worms." The Lord is My Shepherd A Sunday School teacher decided to have her young class memorize one of the most quoted passages in the Bible - Psalm 23. She gave the youngsters a month to learn the chapter. Little Rick was excited about the task - but he just couldn't remember the Psalm. After much practice, he could barely get past the first line. On the day that the kids were scheduled to recite Psalm 23 in front of the congregation,
In some African countries, the umbilical cord is rubbed with dirt after birth . . . dirt is a primary source of tetanus. As you return to the village with your water jugs full, you are very tired. You pour the water into the appropriate tubs for use – one for drinking, one for washing and one for cleaning. You are very careful because your mother had a new baby two days agoa boy!- and you want them to have enough water. Even though you are exhausted, you are so excited to see himhe is so tiny and you can’t wait for all you can do together as he gets bigger. But when you return the ladle to the bucket, you see your mother crying. The woman that helped deliver him is at your home, but you don’t see a new baby anywhere. When you ask what the matter is, your mom tells you that the baby became very sick and started having spasms. He couldn’t breathe right and was in a lot of pain. She says they tried to get help, but since you do not live near any hospitals or doctors’ offices, it was too late. The new baby Ricky was so nervous. When it was his turn, he stepped up to the microphone and said proudly, "The Lord is my Shepherd, and that's all I need to know." Unanswered Prayer The preacher's 5 year-old daughter noticed that her father always paused and bowed his head for a moment before starting his sermon. One day, she asked him why. "Well, Honey," he began, proud that his daughter was so observant of his messages. "I'm asking the Lord to help me preach a good sermon." "How come He doesn't answer it?" she asked. Being Thankful A Rabbi said to a precocious six-year-old boy, "So your mother says your prayers for you each night? That's very commendable. What does she say?" The little boy replied, "Thank God he's in bed!"
died - it hurts very badly and makes you angry that you don’t have a little brother anymore. You don’t understand how this could happen and you wish that something could be done about this. Of course, it’s partly because MNT is a heart-wrenching, preventable tragedy. But there’s also a proven action plan in place to eliminate this disease. And the results are measurable. Maternal and neonatal tetanus is easily prevented by a series of three vaccinations to women of childbearing age, costing roughly US$1.80. If a woman is properly vaccinated with the tetanus vaccine, she will have immunity through the majority of her childbearing years, passing on her protection to her future children. Babies born to mothers who have been vaccinated will be protected through the first two months of life. MNT has already been elimi‘The Children Suffer’ Cont. on Page 3 All Men/All Girls When my daughter, Kelli, said her bedtime prayers, she would bless every family member, every friend, and every animal (current and past). For several weeks after we had finished the nightly prayer, Kelli would say, "And all girls." It soon became part of her nightly routine to include this closing. My curiosity got the best of me and I asked her, "Kelli, why do you always add the part about all girls?" Her response, "Because everybody always finishes their prayers by saying 'All Men'!"

There are 34 countries where MNT remains a threat. Here’s just some of the exciting news as to what has been done. Guinea-Bissau eliminates maternal and neonatal tetanus - 5/11/12 Burkina Faso eliminates maternal and neonatal tetanus - 4/12/2012 Liberia and Senegal eliminate maternal and neonatal tetanus - 2/24/2012 Liberia eliminates maternal and neonatal tetanus 2/16/2012 Ghana eliminates maternal and neonatal tetanus 12/2/2011 Uganda eliminates maternal and neonatal tetanus 3/30/2011 25 Countries that have eliminated maternal and neonatal tetanus Africa (20), including the states of Benin, Burkina Faso, Burundi, Comoros, Congo, Egypt, Eritrea, Ghana, Guinea-Bissau, Liberia, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, Rwanda, Senegal, South Africa, Togo, Uganda, Zambia, Zimbabwe Middle East (1) Turkey Asian Pacific (4) Bangladesh, Myanmar, Nepal, Vietnam But there is more work to be done. Here are the 34 countries with maternal and neonatal tetanus Africa (22) including the states of: Angola, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Chad, Cote D’Ivoire, DRC (Congo), Equatorial Guinea, Ethiopia, Kenya, Madagascar, Mauritania, Mali, Gabon, The Gambia, Guinea, Niger, Nigeria, Sierra Leone, Somalia, South Sudan, Sudan, Tanzania Middle East (5) including the states of: Afghanistan, India (18 of 33 states), Iraq,
Pakistan, Yemen The Americas (1) Haiti Asian Pacific (6) including the states of: China, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Papua New Guinea, Philippines Hopefully, you are alarmed at the 34 countries that still have maternal neo-natal tetanus. But, as you can see below, progress is being made here as well. Just looking at some of these countries, here’s a progress report: China . . 33% eliminated Afghanistan . . . 40% eliminated India . .50% Pakistan . . .40% Chad . .20% Angola ... 40% Cambodia . . 60% Tanzania . . .80% Haiti . . 20% Indonesia . . 60% Iraq . . 80% Kenya . .20% Madagascar . . 40% Niger . . 50% Nigeria . . 20% Phillipines . . 40% Sierra Leone . . 60% Somalia . . . 40% Sudan . . 40% Recognizing that MNT can be eliminated in a matter of years in ALL of these countries, organizations have come together to battle this disease. Several prominent names you recognize are Kiwanis and UNICEF. They have come together with a battle plan that involves fund-raising sufficient to place $1.80 worth of vaccine in the hands of every mother in these countries. That’s all it takes to stop the spread of this deadly disease. $1.80. That buys three separate vaccinations and that helps save mothers and their babies - not only keeps them alive . . . but prevents the excruciating pain of tetanus. The fundraising won’t stop there, though. There is also an education campaign for each country . . . teaching the necessity for clean water, nutrition, and the need for clean, sanitary facilities in which to deliver the babies. Mothers in some of those
countries in Africa need to learn that one of the worst things you can do is rub dirt on a baby’s umbilical cord as a birthing ritual. That ancient custom has introduced more tetanus into an infant than most any other action. Tetanus bacteria thrive in the soil. Kiwanis International and UNICEF have joined forces to conduct a global campaign for the children which Kiwanis calls Project EliMiNaTe. Do programs like this really work? You bet they do. During their first global campaign for children, the Kiwanis family raised awareness for iodine deficiency disorders, the leading preventable cause of mental disability, and nearly $100 million for salt iodization, testing and monitoring, and community outreach and education in developing nations were raised. These funds are now at work in more than 103 nations and about 80 million children in the developing world will be born free of IDD this year. This project has been hailed as one of the greatest public health triumphs of the 20th century. Always looking for more ways to serve their community, both locally and worldwide, Kiwanis now has stepped up to the plate to help defeat MNT. With The Eliminate Project, Kiwanis will eliminate maternal and neonatal tetanus. The goal is to save and protect the lives of millions of mothers and newborns. Hand-inhand, Kiwanis and UNICEF will again change the world. The Eliminate Project will help protect babies from the clutches of a deadly, painful disease—and keep them in their mothers’ embrace.

People like you will be recruited and trained to educate, inspire and assist clubs and members around the world on ways to achieve this ambitious goal. What will be accomplished: Women, worldwide, will begin to understand the importance of giving birth in a clean, sterile setting. Supply chains that delivers the tetanus vaccine will be, and are, set up, to expedite delivery of the vaccines and the volunteers to administer them. Volunteers will, and do, hike hours across rugged terrain to immunize a woman. Hospital and health center staff are working to save or protect mothers and babies, even now as you read these words.

with Project Eliminate: I’m a person who trusts. If somebody tells me they’re going to do something, I believe they’re going to do it. With me, you have to prove yourself wrong. Before I went to the Philippines in April, I trusted that the money Kiwanians have been donating to The Eliminate Project was going to the right cause at the right time. I believed it before I saw it. But seeing it made a powerful impact on me.
Kiwanis has joined a select group of leading organizations and global health organizations in this effort. Kiwanis is helping to provide the last needed push to eliminate this disease, worldwide.
At one time in my life, I held a demanding corporate job in the financial sector. One thing corporations pride themselves on is efficiency, and my company was no exception. That’s business at every level—you try to be as efficient as possible. That’s what I saw in the Philippines too: efficiency. Efficiency in providing medical care. Efficiency in providing immunizations. The Filipino people were efficient too. On every

They are City Council policies that are carried out by our City Manager through the Police Department.” The Police Chief was placed on paid administrative leave to protect the integrity of a personnel review process and is unrelated to the Police Department’s established policies.

Attempts to revive him were unsuccessful and he was pronounced dead at the scene. Barnes, who was a pre-school teacher, was still attending college and lived with his parents in Valley Center.

$1.2 Million Grant to Cal State San Marcos
The grant will also provide early teaching experience to pique students' interest in teaching and make sure that those who receive the scholarships are sure about their commitments.
A program at Cal State San Marcos that is designed to attract more high school science and math teachers has been given a $1.2 million grant from the National Science Foundation. "There is a national need for science and math teachers, and this is particularly acute and relevant in San Diego given the county's STEM-based economy and workforce," said CSUSM Physics Department Chairman Ed Price. This grant adds to the $10 million in federal grants that the university already receives for education in science, technology, engineering and math, collectively known as the STEM disciplines. Up to 38 students may be eligible to receive $12,000 in annual scholarships, thanks to this grant. In return, they must agree to
Part of the reason for the grant is a recognition that there is a great need for teachers in science and math and, of late, many students opt for other careers rather than teach. This grant hopes to attract and retain more teachers in the two disciplines.

The Paper Endorsements For San Marcos City Council think Rebeccas Jones has contribued greatly to that civil atmosphere. This is particularly welcome given the rancourous relationships we see in both state and federal congresses.
The Paper endorses Rebecca Jones Rebecca Jones has been on the council since 2007, when she was appointed to serve the remainder of Mayor Jim Desmond's term as a council member after he was elected mayor in 2006. She won the seat in the 2008 election, and is running for re-election to another four-year term.
Jones has fought for strict enforcement on San Marcos gangs, protected our kids by helping to pass tougher rules on child predators and helped create a strong city ordinance to prohibit the sale and possession of dangerous synthetic drugs. She has also supported our firefighters by adding new equipment for public safety. She looks forward to working on the San Marcos Creek and University Districts.
From all we have observed, she’s done a fine job and deserves to be returned to office.
She enjoys the endorsement of the Fire Department, the Deputy Sheriff’s Association, the Republican Party and the Lincoln Club.
She has proven she can work with anyone. In the past, there had been contentious council meetings and some friction between council members. Not so much today. This council seems to work well together and we
As an incumbent, she knows the policies and procedures of the city and its council and staff. She’s ready for another term and has plenty of energy to finish her job. We urge your vote for Rebecca Jones!

Most people want to maintain their independence and dignity and not burden their adult children with the aspects of life as a mature adult. Many senior homeowners are house rich and cash poor, some still have mortgages with large monthly payments. But, let’s be honest, it doesn’t take much to be a large payment in relation to a social security payment, does it? Many others want to live out some of their lifelong dreams, but don’t necessarily have the cash to do so.

Since the inception of the program, back in the 1980’s, things have really changed. And with each change, the program has grown to include a fixed rate program, and it can even be used to purchase a home! These are all changes that have helped with public acceptance of a government program that was designed to assist homeowners 62 years old and older to stay put in their own home. The new normal is that we all want to stay home, not move to a care facility. Certainly, there may be a time for that move, but as long as we are able, we would like to stay in our own familiar and loved home and community. When this program originated, many seniors owned their home free and clear. While there are many who still do, there has been a shift and more senior homeowners now have a mortgage.

We have learned, from several credible sources, the nature of the investigation. We agree that the proper course of action was taken by putting Chief Maher on paid leave. Why? Because he has a close working relationship with the the two officers involved; additionally, the sensitive nature of the allegations require taking Maher out of the line of fire. Maher did what he was supposed to do. He learned of alleged improper activity, some of which involved the transmission of written data. Maher had two options. He could have called the offending officers on the carpet, read them the riot act, told them to knock off the dumb activity, and send them back to their assignments. The second option was to turn the information over to his superiors, which we think was the correct option.

Republicans to Address Obamacare Victory Escondido 2012 is hosting Dr. Wayne Iverson at I accept the city’s position that Maher was put on paid leave because his presence at Police Headquarters could have compromised the investigation into alleged “improper conduct” by two high level police officers. Maher has been chief since 2006 and a member of the department since June 1980. We have worked closely with Maher when he headed up the city’s gang unit and we were involved in Los Caballeros de Aventura (The Gentlemen of Adventure), a group dedicated to diverting Latino kids away from gang activity. We watched Maher and his wife, Eva, take those kids bowling, to movies, to basketball games; the kids loved him and he had “street cred.” The kids would alert Maher if/when something big was going down and Maher could intervene. When Maher was named chief we said at that time and say again today, Jim Maher is the best Chief of Police Escondido has ever had. "The decision was made to do a

More information is available formal investigation, and I was put on leave to protect me," Maher said. "I'm too close to the people involved." The chief declined to name the two employees, or anyone else who might be involved. Maher said he doubted the investigation would be particularly complicated or time-consuming. "I would say it could be handled quickly," Maher said. Based on what we have learned, we agree. It should be a fairly simple matter to attend do. There’s no criminal wrongdoing involved . . . just an apparent lack of judgment on the part of the two officers involved that could potentially cause harm to the city and/ or its employees. Maher, who turned 57 on Thursday, said he plans to continue running the department for three more years ---- until his 60th birthday. Maher has reached out to the community and enjoys the support of his officers. I believe in him. okay.

Ms. Jenkins’ learning curve should be substantially less, given her experience and community involvement. She has proven herself to be a dedicated resident of the community, one who cares about the community and has actively volunteered to back up that care and dedication. That’s the kind of attitude and credentials we look for in a city council candidate. Accordingly, we are pleased to endorse Sharon Jenkins for San Marcos City Council.
Page 8 - September 20, 2012 ‘The Children Suffer’ Cont. from Page 3 street corner, someone was busily sweeping up. That made me feel good. Another thing that made me feel good was UNICEF’s efficiency in providing tetanus vaccines. We experienced it firsthand. The vaccine was in the right place at the right time. It was there in the right way, being cared for, at the right temperature. Chain of life In Benguet Province, we learned how important it is to protect the vaccine and keep it cool—and how difficult that can be in tropical climates. The folks from UNICEF call it the “cold chain.” The vaccine is procured from overseas manufacturers. Then it’s housed in refrigerated storage sites in larger towns. From there, it needs to be transported in a cold pack, which looks like a cooler. Each cold pack gets packed with ice and up to 20 vials of vaccine. A cold pack only stays cold for one day. The vaccine actually has a label that changes color when
The cold chain: In the Philippines, vaccines are carried for many miles over rough terrain. the vaccine is no longer viable. Add to that challenge the difficulty of getting to some of the places where people really need the vaccine. Often, volunteers and health workers can’t drive a car or a four-wheel-drive truck. They have to get there by motor scooter. Picture that— people riding motor scooters up a mountain path, with cold packs of vaccine strapped on their backs. That certainly was a lot more dedication than I anticipated, and a lot more caring for the moms and babies I want to protect. At all the places we traveled, I never heard anyone say, “I can’t get the vaccine” or “I can’t get syringes.” Everybody we met—health workers in Manila, hospital staff in La Trinidad, government officials in the
Princess is her name and a princess is certainly what she is. She is about 10 months old and 10 pounds. We are not sure what breeds she may be but we know she is full grown. Princess has beautiful black, brown and white coloring and a very soft coat. She is quiet, well behaved and great company for anyone. She gets along with other pets and all ages of people. A bit shy at first but soon Princess warms up and loves to be held. She does very well on her walks and of course, loves to play. Like all our pups Princess is spayed and microchipped. Her 5 way vaccines and rabies are all up to date. She comes with a full 4 piece safety equipment set, food for her transition and any favorite toys or bedding.

rural town of Itogon—they all seemed grateful to UNICEF. Part of that may be because, while UNICEF staff and health workers are helping get tetanus shots to women of childbearing age, they’re helping fight other diseases as well. They’re working with local government officials and gaining their trust and respect. They’re making a difference for moms, babies, families, communities and the world.
Georgia is Pet of the Week at your Rancho Coastal Humane Society in Encinitas. She's a 10-month-old, 60 pound, spayed, female, Labrador Retriever / German Shepherd mix. Georgia and her "sister" were surrendered to RCHS when their owners discovered that they were living with two Labrador Retrievers that were 10 months old and younger. One is fun. Two enthusiastic Lab puppies create more of a challenge. Her sister has been adopted, so now it's time for Georgia to meet her new "people" and go to her forever home. Georgia's adoption fee of $145 includes up to date vaccines, veterinary exam, spay, and microchip. Meet Sweet Georgia at Rancho Coastal Humane Society, 389 Requeza Street in Encinitas. Adoption hours are 11 to 5 Wednesday through Monday. For more information call 760-7536413.
seeing so many children in hospitals. Where I come from, I don’t see that, and maybe it’s good I don’t see it. At the San Lazaro pediatric hospital for infectious diseases in Manila, we saw four children suffering from tetanus. That brought it home—when a little girl couldn’t open her mouth to eat. That was heartbreaking to me.
Timothy is a 2-year-old neutered male English spot mix, ID 68005. Timothy makes cute grunting sounds, and he loves to do binkies (bunny dance) during his playtime. He is litter box trained and will be a good pet for apartment living. Timothy is available for adoption at the Escondido Humane Society, 3450 E. Valley Parkway. His $25 adoption fee in September includes his neuter, microchip and vet exam. The Escondido Humane Society is reducing all adoption fees to just $25 for all animals in September.

In the nursery, where mothers and babies were three to a bed, one mother invited me to hold her baby. That was something. It was the mother’s first child, and he wasn’t even a day old, yet she was so willing to share that moment with me. She kept her eye on me, though—she was
This example tells a lot: When people saw the UNICEF vans approaching, they smiled. To me, that means something good is happening when UNICEF comes around. That means UNICEF workers are there and doing their best to save children. Like I said, I never doubted that funds donated to The Eliminate Project were being used in the right way, and I never doubted that we could save or protect a lot of moms and babies. But seeing the funds in action—witnessing what we were able to do as Kiwanians— made me proud. A touching moment One surprise on the trip was
Heartbreaking: A child with tetanus at the San Lazaro pediatric hospital for infectious diseases in Manila. On the other hand, my time in Filipino hospitals inspired me in ways I could never have anticipated. Our visit to the Fabella hospital in Manila was the first time I’d been in a delivery room since my third child was born. We were surrounded

Trust in action: Bob Parton cradles a healthy newborn at Dr. Jose Fabella Memorial Hospital in Manila. Talk about trust. That keeps coming back to me: how easily tetanus can affect someone at any age. If that mother hadn’t been vaccinated and if she hadn’t given birth in the hospital, her baby could have suffered from tetanus. We can solve that problem. All of us.
The Kiwanis connection I’ve been serving in Kiwanis in a lot of different levels for a long time. If you can see it on a local level, seeing it on a world level isn’t that different—it’s lots of hands doing lots of things to get things done. I think we should be proud, and I hope we are all proud to recognize what we do in our community is great, and if there’s a need we should fill it. But, as Kiwanians, our community is so much bigger than that. We’d have to be selfish to think we could change a child’s life and then say “that’s not my responsibility.” One person asked me: Once we save these children, what will we do with them? I said: We won’t put them in cemeteries anymore. There will be productive people in the world who one day may change the world themselves.

Health Care Reform in California What It May Mean to You!
The Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) is soon to become implemented in our sunny state and this can have far reaching consequences for all of us.

The Health Benefit Exchange Board will be in charge of overseeing the soon to be created health and dental insurance marketplace and will be able to offer
Currently, children’s dental benefits are part of the Essential Health Benefit packages that must be sold, but adult dental benefits are called “supplemental,” and the Exchange could choose not to offer them. The California Dental Association and other organizations have encouraged the Board that offering adult benefits to consumers and small businesses will allow the Exchange to be the central location for comprehensive access for all members of the family. The other key dental benefits question relates to stand-alone plans. They must decide

Escondido • Mayor Sam Abed September is National Preparedness Month As we approach the start of fire season, the Escondido Fire Department asks you to click on the “Pledge to Prepare” banner on the department’s webpage www.fire.escondido.org and join the National Preparedness Coalition. Please take the time to “Pledge to Prepare” by taking the following actions: 1. Make a plan 2. Have a kit 3. Be informed 4. Get involved A good place to begin preparing is by writing a family emergency plan. Your plan should include every member of your household – including pets! • Learn the likely threats in your
area; in Escondido, they are wildland fire and earthquakes. • Identify family meeting places outside your home and neighborhood. • Designate an out-of-town contact as it may be easier for a long distance call/ text message to get through than a local one. • Know alternate routes out of your neighborhood in case your “usual way” is impassable. • Know the location of home utilities. • Know the emergency policies of your work and children’s schools. • Identify safe spots in each room of your home or office to take cover. • Consider stocking extra medications and provisions for family members and pets. • Schedule an annual disaster drill to test your plan. For additional emergency planning information, visit www.ready.gov.
Rancho Bernardo • Mayor Jerry Sanders San Diego is an ambitious, creative city constantly seeking innovative ways to improve the quality of life for residents and visitors. For example, last year, Car2Go used San Diego as a platform to launch the first all electric-vehicle fleet in North America. Earlier this month, MTS announced the expansion of the Green Line Trolley, making it a single seat ride to downtown from any location.
Bike sharing programs are becoming popular in cities around the country, but in San Diego, we want to take it one step further. This program will be one of the first in the nation to operate without the use of public funds with no impact to taxpayers.
This week, we are taking the lead again by announcing plans to develop a comprehensive bike share program for our city.
Healthy, environmentally conscious and fun, bike sharing is perfect for the San Diego lifestyle. For those seeking flexible trans-
We are issuing a Request for Sponsorship to identify companies interested in partnering with the city to launch a new bike sharing program that we envision will expand from downtown to the beach area.
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.
San Marcos • Mayor Jim Desmond The City of San Marcos has d e c l a r e d September as N a t i o n a l Preparedness month, a nationwide effort encouraging Americans to take simple steps to prepare for emergencies in their homes, businesses and schools. Recent disaster events like earthquakes, prolonged periods of drought, extreme fire conditions and unpredictable storm patterns serve as a reminder of the importance of disaster preparedness. As we enter the fall season, here are some helpful emergency preparedness tips: 1. Make a plan: your family may not be together when disaster strikes, so map out safety places and determine
how you will contact one another. 2. Build a kit: have an emergency kit with at least three days’ worth of essentials at your home. 3. Stay informed: Know what disasters are of particular risk to your community, familiarize yourself with city and workplace evacuation plans, and register phones with AlertSanDeigo to receive emergency notification alerts. 4. Get involved: Find opportunities to support community preparedness. The City of San Marcos offers free CPR classes and Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training courses. To learn more disaster preparedness tips, review survival guides, or to register for emergency alerts, visit www.readysandiego.org or call the City of San Marcos, (760) 744-1050.
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!

‘Local News’ Cont. from Page 4 sent a letter to Katherine Tanner, Executive Director for Facilities Planning and Development with the San Marcos Unified School District, expressing his concern about the chronic issue at the High School of parking. Tanner’s office is still in the design phase of the parking at SMHS and the adequacy of parking to be provided is a matter of keen citizen interest, many of whom have asked Mr. Hunsaker to intercede on their behalf. Hunsaker points out this interest is heightened considering the San Marcos new zoning ordinances which promote inadequate parking. A further problem, he says, is the alterations to San Marcos Blvd. and Discovery Streets which will markedly increase congestion. The citizens seeing how just a few hundred spillover vehicles can overwhelm their suburban streets do not want the experience repeated much less worsened. He argues that the proposed San Marcos zoning ordinances calling for 1 space per 5 students and 1 space per every 2 employees, is ludicrously low. He suggests Tanner and her staff consider, in the alternative, one space per employee with two spaces for service vehicles and at least one space for handicapped. He also wonders that with limited parking acreage perhaps a parking structure may be required. If so, he wonders if perhaps the lanes around a structure can be used for queuing pick-up traffic combined with a one way transit lane. Area residents are also concerned that the proposed changes to San Marcos Blvd. be addressed. They argue, as presented, they will produce monumental congestion right in front of the high school if they go forward. Ms. Tanner responded that “at this time we are looking at all options on the school site and then what can be done off site. As to the timeline we have a target date for a report and recommendations for December 2012.”
In all probability, the exchange of emails and the study will be forwarded to the San Marcos City Council, the Planning Director, and SMUSD Board. Neighbors in the Lake San Marcos area appear agitated about this issue and are clearly ready to debate the issue either at the SMUSD Board Meeting or the San Marcos City Council, or both. One neighbor, Marianne Plank, said: “We are surprised that the 'discovery of tribal artifacts' was not presented during the Environmental Impact Report. The Native Americans routinely have to submit their statements before the EIR is approved, just as the ACOE, SDRWQCB, and others must do. What happened that created this surprise loss of property planned for almost 80 vehicles? The loss of 80 parking spaces is not going to be resolved by studying. It is much like the expectation of using The Movement for student parking, with an unidentified alternative, that later became San Pablo Drive at Lake San Marcos. To identify space on the SMHS campus for 80 parking spaces will require changing other plans to accommodate those spaces. Something has to give, something has to be eliminated. It's that simple. SMHS must not repeat permitting over 100+ student vehicles to park on the residential streets of LSM. What is The Plan for when the campus parking spaces are filled and students continue to arrive? Where will they be directed to park? Or is it simply their choice? We have reviewed this so many times - it is a safety issue for students and their parents and the LSM residents - and it is a dangerous condition that puts lives at risk. LSM is in the SMUSD. We vote on school issues and pay taxes for the schools. LSM residents should have had more input into the planning for this new high school especially the planning for parking. The loss of 80 parking spaces is no insignificant error. There is no solution except to eliminate something else on campus to accommodate 80 vehicles.

Nome and Paul Van Middlesworth thecomputerfactoryltd.com The Computer Factory Technology Wars There are four main sources of revenue in the PC business today: software sales, hardware sales, business services, and advertising revenue. This week we begin a discussion on who gets what and how each revenue source affects the strategic planning and tactical interplay between the major players. All of these companies are also players in the tablet and smart phone segments but for now we’ll keep it simple and concentrate on PCs. MS (Microsoft) is a software company. It makes a living by selling operating systems and applications for 90% of the Worlds personal computers. MS does not sell advertising space on its operating systems or Internet Explorer (the browser integrated into
Google is an advertising agency. Like MS, Google also developed an operating system (Android) and an Internet browser (Chrome) but unlike MS, Google doesn’t sell them. Google gives them away. Google then sells advertising services (thirty billion dollars last year) on its browser and Internet service products like YouTube, Google maps, Google Plus and Google Earth. Dell and HP/Compaq are essentially hardware marketing organizations for Asian computer manufacturers. They do sell business services associated with these products and also gain significant revenue by selling advertising space (bloatware) on retail PCs (pop-ups, links, trial programs and spam).
I supported legislation to prohibit this abuse, but unless there is improved oversight the ban may do little to prevent spiking. Last week, the State Controller’s office released a report stating that many school districts routinely spike their member’s pensions. They have gotten away with this abuse because there is inadequate oversight within CalSTRS. The report revealed that, at the current CalSTRS
The Windows XP hangover continues to this day. MS revenue growth has averaged 6% since 2008. To spur the sale of new Win 7 PCs and upgrades. MS announced that its latest browser (Internet Explorer 9.0) would not support Win XP. Since Win XP is installed on 43% of the worlds PCs, Google gleefully announced that its own browser “Chrome” would fully support Windows XP forever. It
worked and Google’s Chrome passed MS IE as the Worlds most popular browser. Remember, Google makes a living selling advertising services on its browser. MS doesn’t get revenue from IE but it does regard the prominence of its browser as an important asset in its plans to market applications on the Internet. MS was ticked and struck back. MS announced that it would ship its Windows 8 embedded version of the Internet Explorer browser with DNT enabled by default. This announcement shook the world of Internet commerce to its core. Tune in next week to find out what DNT is and why it may be a poison pill.
Apple is in its own little world. Since it is the sole source for all of its products Apple gets all the money. Apple controls the revenues from hardware, software, advertising, services, applications and content. That’s why Apple, with less than 10% penetration in the PC market segment, actually enjoys about 50% of the PC industry’s profits. MS’s revenue is tied to new PC sales. The ill-conceived release of the widely scorned Vista OS in 2007 forced MS to allow manufacturers to continue producing new PCs with XP. When MS stopped allowing producers to sell XP

Retirement planning is a difficult task made easier for some State Teachers Retirement System (CalSTRS) members, who “spike” their salaries during their last years of employment. The “spike” is a significant pay increase that manipulates a greater pension payout.
PCs in 2008, most business and home users simply opted to stay with their old Windows XP. Computer sales tanked and MS revenue growth, which had averaged over 13% per year between 2003 and 2008, actually went negative in 2009.
once every 48 years! Inadequate is an understatement. The absence of audits and the subsequent failure to detect pension spiking burdens taxpayers with unjustifiable pension costs. Auditing is not revolutionary, it is necessary. The private sector routinely uses audits to ensure projects are running as intended. I believe audits should be an annual practice for all state agencies and programs, especially our expensive pension systems.

Realignment Threatens Public Safety
who have benefited from realignment.
October will mark the oneyear anniversary of the implementation of Governor Brown’s public safety “realignment” plan, yet many Californians remain concerned for the safety of their families and have little to celebrate.
I strongly opposed realignment when it came before the Legislature because it was just Sacramento-speak for the early release of dangerous individuals. In all, realignment combined with a court-ordered population prison reduction, will result in 52,000 offenders being shifted from state prison to local jails by 2013-14. Also, it transfers some of the state’s budget problems to local governments and puts the responsibility on counties to decide whether or not to release prisoners early. Realignment is a bait and switch making Californians less safe and shifting Sacramento’s inability to reduce spending onto the counties. The Governor can wash his hands of the tough public safety choices that counties have to make – but he is the one who made those choices necessary in the first place.
In San Diego County alone, one offender has been arrested on a murder charge and five others on attempted murder charges. Joseph Todd Hall was arrested in January for allegedly murdering his brother. Even though he was convicted of numerous crimes such as grand theft and possessing a firearm as a felon, Hall was out free because of the Governor’s realignment program. The others arrested for attempted murder include a man accused of carjacking a family in Escondido, stabbing one victim in the chest. These suspects are among the inmates

Kathy B. There has been music added to one of our favorite local restaurants much to my delight.

The Black Pearl Oyster Bar, which is located at the entrance to the restaurant, is a great place to congregate and meet new singles while enjoying a delicious ‘Man About Town’ Cont. from Page 4 conditions. All of us who know and love the man and his family are wishing for a speedy recovery. We’re all anxious to hear him singing and playing his guitar again soon.

Pastor Clint Miller, before surgery
Speaking of Pastors, remember the cover story we did, “The God Show?” We ranked the most outstanding speakers in North County. Pastor Clint Miller was in the top group . . and the number one preacher was Pastor Harry Kuehl of The Church at Rancho Bernardo.

The VA Cover Story
Lyle, very nice story on the VA in Oceanside.
As the presidential election nears, the 21st in which I have had the privilege to vote, I am saddened to think of how the value of my vote has deteriorated.
Yes, the entire staff are very nice, friendly people. I have been using the VA for over 20 years both here in San Diego and Brooklyn, New York. I have had services in all the departments you mentioned in "The Paper" and I have nothing but praise for the staff and the VA. Dr. Bell has been my primary doctor for 11 years. She is one of the best doctors to ever care for me medically. I have always had very good care with Navy and VA doctors, especially when I was in St. Alban`s hospital, New York, eternal smile, was having a great time, as was the peripatetic Joyce Wells, the busy, busy lady who is always promoting something new and exciting; and one of the greatest baritones of all time, Tom Hogarty, well known public relations counsel; he even serenaded the Man About Town with a complete renditon of one of the world’s most beautiful songs . . . “There is No Place like Nebraska.” ••••• Is anyone else offended by the Jack-In-the-Box commercial where the actors are playing Scrabble and the last word in the commercial is “nonookie?’ I’m anything but a prude but, to me, that is not language that belongs in a commercial beamed into homes where young kids are. ••••• Condolences to Ernie and Joan Schimmelman, former residents and good friends, whose daughter, Carole, age 51, passed away Sunday. Cause of death is unknown, pending autopsy. Long time friends, Ernie and Joan left Escondido to pursue a career in real estate in Fort Smith, Arkansas, where he is with the King Realty Group.
With the outrageous amount of money spent by the candidates in their campaigns, and the rapid rise of PACs and lobbyists, along with the almost unlimited access to television, a candidate can gain votes with charm and rhetoric. All of these advantages make my vote seem so insignificant. Nevertheless, I will continue to vote because no-one can tell me that I can't. Even at 97 years of age, I still honor that privilege! Dale Wolf Omaha Nebraska The Carlsbad Senior Center Dear Editor: I got a laugh when I read your article about the Carsbad Senior Center refusing to welcome your Paper in their establishment. And, more importantly how offended you got because of it. You see, I read your paper often, but because I am a proud American I am constantly offended by your insults and underhanded jokes about my President. Regardless of which Political affiliation you find yourself, there was a time when disrespecting the office of the President was looked down upon greatly by all Americans. So please remember it goes both ways. Just as you have the right to insult whomever you wish, including the office of the President of this great land, and just as you can place ‘Letters to the Editor’ Cont. on Page 18

"That's at our house." Johnny explained. "But this is Grandma's house, and she knows how to cook.” A Nun at Hooters A nun, badly needing to use the restroom, walked into a local Hooters. The place was hopping with music and loud conversation and every once in a while the lights would turn off. Each time the lights would go out, the place would erupt into cheers. However, when the revelers saw the nun, the room went dead silent. She walked up to the bartender, and asked, 'May I please use the restroom?’ The bartender replied, 'OK, but I should warn you that there is a statue of a naked man in there wearing only a fig leaf.' 'Well, in that case, I'll just look the other way,' said the nun.

So the bartender showed the nun to the back of the restaurant. After a few minutes, she came back out, and the whole place stopped just long enough to give the nun a loud round of applause. She went to the bartender and said, 'Sir, I don't understand. Why did they applaud for me just because I went to the restroom?' 'Well, now they know you're one of us,' said the bartender, 'Would you like a drink?' 'No thank you, but, I still don't understand,' said the puzzled nun. 'You see,' laughed the bartender, 'every time someone lifts the fig leaf on that statue, the lights go out. Now, how about that drink?’ Children in Church A little boy was attending his first wedding. After the service, his cousin asked him, "How many women can a man marry?" "Sixteen," the boy responded. His cousin was amazed that

he had an answer so quickly. "How do you know that?" "Easy," the little boy said. "All you have to do is add it up, like the pastor said, 4 better, 4 worse, 4 richer, 4 poorer." ••••• After a church service on Sunday morning, a young boy suddenly announced to his mother, "Mom, I've decided to become a minister when I grow up." "That's okay with us, but what made you decide that?" "Well," said the little boy, "I have to go to church on Sunday anyway, and I figure it will be more fun to stand up and yell, than to sit and listen." ••••• A little girl became restless as the preacher's sermon dragged on and on. Finally, she leaned over to her mother and whispered, "Mommy, if we give him the money now, will he let us go?" ••••• A little girl was sitting on her grandfather's lap as he read her a bedtime story. From time to time, she would take her eyes off the book and reach up to touch his wrinkled cheek. She was alternately stroking her own cheek, then his again. Finally she

Only the Bold, the Best, and the Brightest, read The Paper Editor’s Note: Recently, we received yet another note from a contented reader. He was in between trips but asked that we relay his thoughts and feelings to you, our reader. He, too, has been a long time reader and claims the reason is because it makes him a more rounded person. He collects jokes from the Chuckles Column and is a hit at the parties he attends, usually after conquering a village or town . . . No wonder he is so bold!
First, I discovered America. Then, I discovered The Paper! Ever since I can remember I’ve had the burning desire to discover new places, new adventures. Because of this, I set out to discover a new country . . . and I was successful. I even ventured inland a great many miles where I discovered a place I called Minnesota. “This,” I thought, “would be a great place for Scandinavians.” So I headed back to Norway to recruit settlers. While I was gone, some clown named Columbus claimed he discovered America. Life ain’t fair. Except life also gives us The Paper. I read it whenever and wherever I go exploring and
only buy from those who advertise in The Paper. It’s a Viking Your friend, Erik the Red. thing.
