When I was but a young lad, about a hundred years ago, my dad was a route salesman/driver for Omar Bakery in Omaha, Nebraska. On his route lived a hermit. There was a dirt footpath from way back in the woods out to the roadway . . . and there was an ordinary metal pail. Inside was a note ordering how many loaves of bread the hermit wanted and the exact amount of money necessary to pay.
Dad showed me the pathway and the pail once; I never had a desire to go find the hermit or his cave. I was an adventuresom kid but this was too spooky for me. I don’t remember whether dad ever met or talked to the hermit. It’s been quite a few years and the memory dims.
Hermits have been with us down through time . . . way back to biblical times, perhaps even earlier than that.
This year there was a more modern version of the hermit and the story emerged in this month’s issue of Gentleman’s Quarterly, in a feature article written by Michael Finkel.
For nearly thirty years, a phantom haunted the woods of Central Maine. Unseen and unknown, he lived in secret, creeping into homes in the dead of night and surviving on what he could steal. To the spooked locals, he became a legend—or maybe a myth. They wondered how he could possibly be real. Until one day last year, the hermit came out of the forest.
The Pine Tree summer camp, where a few dozen cabins spread along the shoreline of North Pond in central Maine, was prime hunting grounds for our hermit. With an expert twist of a screwdriver, he popped open a door of the dining hall and slipped inside, scanning the pantry shelves with his penlight.
A sharp game warden, Sergeant Terry Hughes, decided enough was enough, It was time to catch the hermit burgler. Using modern day technology he had newly installed in the Pine Tree kitchen, hidThe Paper - 760.747.7119

Hughes used his cell phone, quietly, and asked the Maine State Police to alert trooper Diane Perkins-Vance, who had also been hunting the hermit. It was one thirty in the morning on April 4, 2013. Perkins-

Vance soon arrived, and the burglar was placed, handcuffed, in a plastic chair. The officers asked his name. He refused to answer. His skin was strangely pale; his glasses, with chunky plastic frames, were extremely outdated. But he wore a nice Columbia jacket, new Lands' End blue jeans, and sturdy boots. The officers searched him, and no identification was located. When Perkins-Vance asked why he didn't want to answer any questions, he said he was ashamed. He gradually opened up. Michael Finkel: His name, he revealed, was Christopher Thomas Knight. Born on December 7, 1965. He said he had no address, no vehicle, did not file a tax return, and did not receive mail. He said he lived in the woods. "For how long?" wondered Perkins-Vance.
Knight said he was 20 years old when he enterd the forest, not long out of high school. He was now 47, a middle-aged man. Knight stated that over all those years he slept only in a tent. He never lit a fire, for fear

There was a guy and he had a girlfriend called Lorraine. She was very pretty and he liked her a lot.
One day he went to work to find that a new girl had started working there. Her name was Clearly, and she was absolutely gorgeous.
He began to like her and after a while it became obvious that she was interested in him too. But, he was a loyal man and he wouldn't get involved with Clearly while he was still going out with Lorraine. He decided that there was nothing for him to do but to break up with Lorraine and date the new girl. He planned
that smoke would give his camp away. He moved strictly at night. He said he didn't know if his parents were alive or dead. He'd not made one phone call or driven in a car or spent any money.
He confessed that he'd committed approximately forty robberies a year while in the woods—a total of more than a thousand break-ins. But never when anyone was home. He said he stole only food and kitchenware and propane tanks and reading material and a few other items. Knight admitted that everything he possessed in the world, he'd stolen, including the clothes he was wearing, right down to his underwear. The only exception was his eyeglasses. Perkins-Vance called dispatch and learned that Knight had no criminal record. He said he grew up in a nearby community, and his senior picture was soon located in the 1984 Lawrence High School yearbook. He was wearing the same eyeglasses. For close to three decades, Knight said, he had not seen a doctor or taken any medicine. He mentioned that he had never once been sick. You had to have contact with other humans, he claimed, in order to get sick.
several times to tell Lorraine but he couldn't bring himself to do it.
One day as they were walking along the river bank, Lorraine slipped and fell in to the river. The current carried her off and she drowned.
The guy stopped for a moment by the river and then ran off smiling and singing..."I can see Clearly now Lorraine is gone..." English: The Way She is Spoke

Christopher Knight was arrested, charged with burglary and theft, and transported to the Kennebec County jail in Augusta, the state capital. For the first time in nearly 10,000 days, he slept indoors.
News of the capture stunned the citizens of North Pond. For decades, they'd felt haunted by… something. It was hard to say what. At first, in the late 1980s, there were strange occurrences. Flashlights were missing their batteries. Steaks disappeared from the fridge. New propane tanks on the grill had been replaced by old ones.
Incidents mounted, and the phantom morphed into legend. Eventually he was given a name: the North Pond Hermit.
Michael Finkel: Knight's arrest, rather than eliminating disbelief, only enhanced it. The truth was stranger than the myth. One man had actually lived in the woods of Maine for twenty-seven years, in an unheated nylon tent. Winters in Maine are long and intensely cold: a wet, windy cold, the worst kind of cold. A week of winter camping is an impressive achievement. An entire season is practically unheard of. Reporters across Maine, and soon enough across the nation and the world, attempted to

Let's face it - English is a crazy language.
There is no egg in eggplant, nor ham in hamburger; neither apple nor pine in pineapple. English muffins weren't invented in England or French fries in France. Sweetmeats are candies while sweetbreads, which aren't sweet, are meat. We take English for granted. But if we explore its paradoxes, we find that quicksand can work slowly, boxing rings are square and a guinea pig is neither from Guinea nor is it a pig.
And why is it that writers write but fingers don't fing, grocers don't groce and hammers don't ham? If the plural of tooth is teeth, why isn't the plural of booth, beeth? One goose, 2 geese. So one moose, 2 meese? One index, 2 indices? Doesn't it seem crazy that you
contact him. What did he wish to tell us? What secrets had he uncovered? How had he survived? He stayed resolutely silent. Even after his arrest, the North Pond Hermit remained a complete mystery. Michael F’inkel decided to write him a letter. he wrote it by hand, pen on paper, and sent it from his home in Montana to the Kennebec County jail. He mentioned he was a journalist seeking explanations for his baffling life. A week later, a white envelope arrived in his mailbox. The return address, printed in blue ink in wobbly-looking block letters, read "Chris Knight." It was a brief note—three paragraphs; 272 words. Still, it contained some of the first statements Knight had shared with anyone in the world.
Michael Finkel: More correspondence would slowly ensue. He was suffering in jail; the noise and the filth tore at his senses. "You asked how I sleep. Little and uneasy. I am nearly always tired and nervous." In his next letter, he added, in his staccato, almost song-lyric style, that he deserved to be imprisoned. "I stole. I was a thief. I repeatedly stole over many years. I knew it was wrong. Knew it was wrong, felt

can make amends but not one amend? If you have a bunch of odds and ends and get rid of all but one of them, what do you call it?
If teachers taught, why didn't preachers praught? If a vegetarian eats vegetables, what does a humanitarian eat? Sometimes I think all the English speakers should be committed to an asylum for the verbally insane. In what language do people recite at a play and play at a recital? Ship by truck and send cargo by ship? Have noses that run and feet that smell?
How can a slim chance and a fat chance be the same, while a wise man and a wise guy are opposites? You have to marvel at the unique lunacy of a language in which your house can burn up as it burns down, in which you fill in a form by filling it out and in which an alarm goes off by going on.
English was invented by people, not computers, and it reflects the creativity of the human race, which, of course, is not a race at all. That is why, when the stars are out, they are visible, but when the lights are out, they are invisible. PS. - Why doesn't 'Buick' rhyme with 'quick' ?

guilty about it every time, yet continued to do it."
He wrote little about his time in the woods, but what he did reveal was harrowing. Some years, he made it clear, he barely survived the winter. He returned to the theme of sanity in a following letter. "When I came out of the woods they applied the label hermit to me. Strange idea to me. I had never thought of myself as a hermit. Then I got worried. For I knew with the label hermit comes the idea of crazy. See the ugly little joke." Even worse, he feared his time in jail would only prove correct those who doubted his sanity. "I suspect," he wrote, "more damage has been done to my sanity in jail, in months; than years, decades, in the woods." Three weeks after his final letter, Finkel flew to Maine.
A reluctant Knight came into the visitor center. After a very awkward silence, in which it became clear that Knight had not wanted a visitor and that Finkel was not welcome, he finally began to talk:
"Some people want me to be this warm and fuzzy person. All filled with friendly hermit wisdom. Just spouting off fortune-cookie lines from my hermit home."
Everything he said seemed candid and blunt, unfiltered by the safety net of social niceties. "I'm not sorry about being rude if it gets to the point quicker," he told Finkel.
Finkel learned that before he slept in the woods for a quarter century straight, Chris never once spent a night in a tent. He was raised in the community of Albion, a forty-five-minute drive east of his camp; he has four older brothers and one younger sister. His father, who died in 2001, worked in a creamery. His mother, now in her eighties, still lives in the same house where Chris grew up, a modest two-story colonial on a wooded fifty-acre plot. The family is extremely private and did not speak with Finkel.
Chris insisted that he had a fine childhood. "No complaints," he said. "I had good parents." He shared vivid stories of moose hunting with his father. "A couple of hunting trips I slept in the back of the pickup, but never alone and never in a tent." After he'd disappeared, his family apparently didn't report him missing to
the police, though they may have hired a private detective. No one uncovered a clue. Two of Chris's brothers, Joel and Tim, visited him in jail. "I didn't recognize them," Chris admitted.
"My brothers supposed I was dead," said Chris, "but never expressed this to my mom. They always wanted to give her hope. Maybe he's in Texas, they'd say. Or he's in the Rocky Mountains." Chris did not allow his mother to visit. "Look at me, I'm in my prison clothes. That's not how I was raised. I couldn't face her." He said he had excellent grades in high school, though no friends, and graduated early. Like two of his brothers, he enrolled in a nine-month electronics course at Sylvania Technical School in Waltham, Massachusetts. Then, still in Waltham, he took a job installing home and vehicle alarm systems; valuable knowledge to have once he started stealing. "I had a backpack and minimal stuff. I had no plans. I had no map. I didn't know where I was going. I just walked away."
It was late summer of 1986. He'd camp in one spot for a week or so, then hike south, following the natural geology of Maine, with its long, glaciercarved valleys. "I lost track of where I was," he said. "I didn't care." For a while, he tried foraging for food. He ate roadkill partridges. Then he began taking corn and potatoes from people's gardens.
"But I wanted more than vegetables," he said. "It took a while to overcome my scruples. I was always scared when stealing. Always." He insists he never encountered anyone during a robbery; he made sure there was no car in the driveway, no sign of anyone inside. "It was usually 1 or 2 A.M. I'd go in, hit the cabinets, the refrigerator. In and out. My heart rate was soaring. It was not a comfortable act. I took no pleasure in it, none at all, and I wanted it over as quickly as possible." A single mistake, he understood, and the outside world would snatch him back.
He roamed about for two years before he discovered the campsite he would call home. He knew at once it was ideal. "Then," he said, "I settled in." "Never once did I sleep inside," he said. He never used a shower. Or a toilet.
Michael Finkel: I trusted him. I sensed, in fact, that Chris was practically incapable of lying. I wasn't alone in this thought. Diane PerkinsVance, the state trooper present at his arrest, told me that much of her job consisted of
sorting through lies people fed her. With Chris, however, she had no doubts. "Unequivocally," she said, "I believe him." The Belgrade Lakes area, where Knight lived, is cowand-horse rural, nothing like the vast North Woods of Maine, wild and unpeopled. Knight's camp was located on private property, just a few hundred feet from the nearest cabin, in an area crisscrossed by dirt roads. When I saw Knight's woods myself, I understood how he could remain there unnoticed. The tangle of hemlock and maple and elm is very dense.
Chris had carved from the chaos a bedroom-sized clearing completely invisible from a few steps away, situated on a slight rise that allowed enough breeze to keep the mosquitoes away, but not so much as to cause severe windchill in winter. It was surrounded by a natural Stonehenge of boulders; overhead, tree branches linked to form a trellis-like canopy that masked his site from the air. This is why Chris's skin was so pale—he'd lived in perpetual shade.
He slept in a simple camping tent, which he kept covered by several layers of brown tarps. Camouflage, he felt, was essential; he didn't want to risk anything shiny catching someone's eye, so he spray-painted, in foresty colors, his garbage bins and his coolers and his cooking pot. He even painted his clothespins green. He stole toilet paper and hand sanitizer for his bathroom spot. He took laundry detergent and shampoo for his wash area. There was no fire pit, as he'd insisted. He cooked on a Coleman two-burner stove that he connected to propane tanks. He stole a tremendous number of tanks, pillaging gas grills along the thirty-mile circumference of the pond. He never returned them. He buried the tanks—possibly hundreds of them—in his dump at the camp's edge. He stole deodorant, disposable razors, flashlights, snow boots, spices, mousetraps, spray paint, and electrical tape. He took pillows off beds.
He stole radios and earphones and hid an antenna up in trees. For a while, he listened to a lot of conservative talk radio. Later he got hooked on classical music—Tchaikovsky and Brahms, yes; Bach, no. "Bach is too pristine," he said. The majority of his free time was spent reading or observing the forest. "Don't mistake me for some bird-watching PBS type," he warned, but then proceeded to poetically describe the crunch of dry leaves underfoot
("walking on corn flakes") and the rumble of an ice crack propagating across the pond ("like a bowling ball rolling down an alley"). He stole hundreds of books over the years; his preference was military history—he named William Shirer's The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich as his favorite book—but he took whatever was available. ··· Following his arrest, the court of public opinion was deeply divided. The man who wanted to live his life as invisibly as possible had become one of the most famous people in Maine.
You could not walk into a bar in the Augusta area without stumbling into a debate about what should be done with Christopher Knight.
Some said that he must immediately be released from jail. Stealing cheese and bacon are not serious crimes. The man was apparently never violent. He didn't carry a weapon. He's an introvert, not a criminal. He clearly has no desire to be a part of our world. Let's open a Kickstarter, get him enough cash for a few years' worth of groceries, and allow him to go back to the woods. Some people were willing to let him live on their land, rent-free. Others countered that it wasn't the physical items he robbed that made his crimes so disturbing—he stole hundreds of people's peace of mind. Their sense of security. How were they supposed to know Knight wasn't armed and dangerous? Even a single break-in can be punishable by a ten-year sentence. If Knight really wanted to live in the woods, he should've done so on public lands, hunting and fishing for food. He's nothing but a lazy man and a thief times a thousand. Lock him up in the state penitentiary. On October 28, 2013, Chris appeared in Kennebec County

Response from Kirk Effinger:
Letters To The Editor Lyle,
Thanks for the online edition of The Paper, my preferred version these days. It is very unfortunate that Kirk (Effinger) and Pat Mues have been constantly bashing Escondido and the council majority. The majority of your readers and the citizens clearly see a better city and an efficient government in Escondido.
One example of their bias is Kirk’s reference to only my support of Amgen tour, leaving Olga’s support out. The council majority’s record of the historic turnaround of the city financially and economically should be the substance of their content, not the superficial negaKudos to the The Escondido Charitable Foundation (ECF) who have now granted $1 million to local nonprofit organizations focused on programs that serve Escondido residents, including $187,715 this year.
Six organizations, including Del Dios Middle School, Encuentros Leadership, Zoological Society of San Diego, North Broadway School, San Elijo Lagoon Conservancy and The Kid’s College, will receive this year’s grants at a celebration on September 25.
Thirty nonprofits that make Escondido a better place to live, work, learn and play have received grants from ECF since its inception in 2006. Collectively, ECF’s 162 historical members have not only granted $1 million to nonprofits in the community, but have also made a $2 million total impact through endowment building and grantmaking. The local impact of ECF nonprofit grantees has been significant and diverse, varying from providing food to hungry seniors; science, math and technology equipment to schools; an Escondido pocket park; community gardens; field trips for Escondido fifth graders to
My mention of your approval of Amgen was in the context of your "not a bank" comment at the forum.
The idea of giving a low-interest loan to fix up decaying facades or otherwise make derelict properties more appealing for tenants is one I would support coming from anyone. The prospective loan to the Chamber wasn’t irresponsible because of the loan, it was irresponsible because it was proposed to an enterprise that: 1) was failing due to its own mismanagement; 2) could feel compelled to support your and your allies’ candidacies as payback.

Escondido, CA—In a 2002 issue of Neurosurgical Focus, a peerreviewed article was published by a Dr. Michael D. Martin, MD et al. in which the third sentence states: “The disc itself is active tissue that contains significant mechanisms for self-repair.” That article was published by a neurosurgeon and written direct-ly for neurosurgeons.
“The Disc Itself Is Active Tissue...”
So what does that really mean to us? It tells us that the disc itself does have a God-given ability to heal and repair if provided the proper mechanisms for self-healing. There is a specific mechanism inherent in each of the spinal discs called the “pump mechanism of disc nutri-tion” (see Fig 1). When this mechanism is not working properly, the spinal discs will begin to die causing bulges, herniations, and eventually spinal stenosis.
The spinal disc is one of the very few tissues in the body that does not have a direct blood supply for circulation. The only way that the disc gets the circulation of water, oxygen and nutrients for self-repair is via this specific disc pump mechanism. What happens when you decrease cir-culation in any type of tissue, whether it be animal tissue, plant tissue or human tissue? Exactly, it begins to become weak and begins to degenerate.
Symptoms Are NOT The Problem
Now the symptoms of pain, numbness,
and tingling that most experience with bulging, herni-ated or degenerative discs are NOT the problem. The definition of a symptom: “something that indicates the existence of something else.” It is just like the dashboard of your car telling you that something is wrong (brake lights out, engine needs checked, overheating, etc.) Those lights that appear in your car dash are NOT the problem. You can remove the lights surgically or put a piece of duct tape over the lights but the problem will NOT be fixed...the problem is still present.

On July 30th of this year three men were shot outside a Felicita Avenue Vons store.
Miguel Fuentes, 38, was killed, his 32-year-old brother and another man, age 28, were wounded while sitting in a car; a fourth man was not injured..
Three Escondido men have now been charged with murder and two counts of attempted murder. Hector Ortiz, 25, Omar Magadan, 21, and Erik Nieto, 20, are said by police to have gotten into an argument with the victims. One of the suspects, as yet unidentified, is said to have pulled a gun and opened fire. Nieto was arrested on Sept. 4. He was then arraigned on charges of murder, attempted murder, reckless driving, and carrying a switchblade knife. His bail was set at $1 million.
Magadan was arrested in August and booked on the murder and attempted murder charges and arraigned on Sept. 10. He is being held on $1.5 million bail. Oceanside Hit and Run Results in Five Injured
Westbound traffic on State Route 76 in Oceanside was blocked for almost two hours early Sunday following a hit and run incident where five individuals were injured.
According to witnesses, a car was making a right turn onto the freeway from Frazee Road about 2:30 a.m. when it was clipped from behind by a speeding car that kept going.
The car that was hit overturned several times and slammed into another vehicle traveling west on Route 76. Two men in the vehicle that rolled were flown to a hospital with injuries that weren't lifethreatening. Three people in the vehicle struck by the overturned car were also hurt. A witness said the suspect car, described as a white four-door, was last seen heading west on Route 76, Wayer said. Woman Testifies in Murder Trial

In your spine, when the pump mechanism of disc nutrition fails, the disc will begin to de-generate and become weak. This weakness in the disc is what produces the bulging, herniated, and degenerative discs.
The treatment that is provided at Dr. Heilman’s Spine and Neuropathy Care Center in Escondido is revolutionary and is specifically designed to artificially re-create the pump mecha-nism in the discs which allows the spinal discs to heal and re-pair. The best part of the treat-ment is that it uses no drugs, no injections, and no surgery. Plus it’s painless and many patients relax and fall asleep while un-dergoing the treatment. The amount of treatment needed to allow the discs to heal and repair varies from person to person and can only be determined after a detailed neurological and orthopedic evaluation. We do NOT accept everyone for treatment and will let you know if we can accept your case for treatment.

Escondido Photographic Artist to Exhibit Her Work
A new law signed by Gov. Jerry Brown will give a boost to Hollywood by tripling the tax credits to $330 million a year for film and television shows produced in California. This is an effort to ensure this industry’s good jobs stay in California.
While I supported giving the entertainment industry a tax break, why not offer breaks to all businesses and taxpayers being taxed and regulated out the state? Applying the same principle to all businesses would encourage California’s native businesses to remain in the state, and would even encourage new businesses to relocate here.

We live in a Dangerous Region: Be Prepared
The summer is over and the fall fire season is rapidly approaching. We all had a taste of what can happen last May when a series of wildfires struck throughout San Diego County. Fires, earthquakes, floods and landslides, all occur with regularity in Southern California; it is only a matter of time until the next natural disaster strikes. Consequently, we should prepare for disasters and emergency situations of all types. Creating a family disaster plan, including where to meet, how to keep in touch, how to secure your home and what to do with pets and livestock must be planned in advance. Once an emergency hits, it’s too late.

You lovers of the English language might enjoy this ..
There is a two-letter word that perhaps has more meanings than any other two-letter word, and that is 'UP.'
It's easy to understand UP, meaning toward the sky or at the top of the list, but when we awaken in the morning, why do we wake UP? At a meeting, why does a topic come UP? Why do we speak UP and why are the officers UP for election and why is it UP to the secretary to write UP a report? We call UP our friends. And we use it to brighten UP a room, polish UP the silver; we warm UP the leftovers and clean UP the kitchen. We lock UP the house and some guys fix UP the old car. At other times the little word has real special meaning.

More impressions from the Escondido Chamber of Commerce Mayoral Forum
Since space is limited and the topic bears more detail than a single 500-word column, this is another installment of my impressions from the forum held a few weeks back:
When asked whether they supported proposed city charter on the November ballot, the answers from Mayor Abed and Deputy Mayor Diaz were predictable.
Abed supports, of course, saying it was an opportunity for home rule and that it would save taxpayers money by eliminating the need to pay prevail-
I admit to being somewhat mystified by the whole charter question and the vague reasons Abed and others give for its necessity, at least in its current form. His answers did nothing to alter the perception that the people behind the effort just basically threw something against the wall in hopes it would stick. One area I have been acutely interested in is the candidates’
‘Kirk Effinger’ Cont. on Page 8
To be knowledgeable about the proper uses of UP, look the word UP in the dictionary.
In a desk-sized dictionary, it takes UP almost 1/4th of the page and can add UP to about thirty definitions. If you are UP to it, you might try building UP a list of the many ways UP is used. It will take UP a lot of your time, but if you don't give UP, you may wind UP with a hundred or more. When it threatens to rain, we say it is clouding UP. When the sun comes out we say it is clearing UP. When it rains, it wets the earth and often messes things UP. When it doesn't rain for awhile, things dry UP.

See you next week with more Chuckles! came to California during the Gold Rush years. He became a millionaire merchant and the chief investor of the western section of the nation’s first transcontinental railroad.
Stanford was one of the four major investors in the Central Pacific Railroad, of which he was president. His partners, who also became California business tycoons, were: Charles Crocker (Crocker National Bank), Mark Hopkins (San Francisco’s Mark Hopkins Hotel), and Collis P. Huntington, (San Marino’s Huntington Library and Botanical Gardens, cities of Huntington Beach and Huntington Park).
Diaz, as has been clear from the outset, does not support the proposition, citing among other things, the lack of citizen input in its drafting, the uncertainty of allowing the city council to determine its elections policy, and the lack of a requirement to balance the city’s budget. Mr. Siaw, once again going against the preconceptions in the minds of many, more or less sided with Diaz by saying he opposed the charter because it was not well thought out.
Harvard University Didn’t Want Their Money
During a meeting with officials of Harvard College in Cambridge, Mass., they were a relativelyunknown couple from California. They were offering several million dollars to Harvard if the college would name a facility or library after their deceased teenaged son, but Harvard turned them down. Somewhat disappointed, they returned to California and later started their own university – Stanford. Born March 9, 1824, Leland Stanford rose to become a powerful American tycoon, industrialist, and politician. In 1851, he was a country attorney when he
Beginning in 1861, Stanford served a two-year term as Governor of California and later eight years as U.S. Senator. He had tremendous power and a lasting impact on California, but his detractors considered him a robber baron.
On May 10, 1869, as head of the railroad that built the western portion of the “first transcontinental railroad" over the High Sierra mountains of California, Stanford presided at the ceremonial driving of "Last (golden) Spike" at Promontory, Utah. The Central Pacific met the Union Pacific Railroad, which had been constructed west from its west-

approach to economic development in the city.
Diaz focused on infrastructure—principally water and storm water development—as important areas to develop in order to attract industry. She cheered the new $23 million Health and Human Services facility that is redeveloping a blighted part of Mission as a boost to the economy. She also suggested the city use all tools available to make it attractive to potential employers by making Escondido a “pretty, friendly, fun city,” but with no details.
Mayor Abed touted the city’s Economic Development Department without giving specifics on goals or achievements, and once again raised the possibility of a tech giant locating here, saying the city was on a “short list” that only included a location in Texas as competition. He asserted as well that downtown is “thriving.” I certainly don’t wish to throw cold water on the possibility of luring a large employer here but, I have serious doubts that this city—in California, no less-- that professes to have little budgetary breathing room, can offer any business the type of incentives to locate here Texas has developed a reputation for handing out.
I’ll leave his thriving downtown observation for you to decide. Stephen Siaw, meanwhile, asserted Escondido is a “great place” and, repeating the predominant theme of his political philosophy, said the key is to just get out of the way of small business.
UT interviews with Mayor Abed and Deputy Mayor Diaz
The UT published two articles last week, each based upon an hour long interview at the UT in August. Mayor Abed’s is titled Regional economic growth, prosperity are key goals while the one on Deputy Mayor Diaz is titled Lack of representation spurred Diaz to politics. From these divergent headlines, we get two very different articles, with only one question — variations on Why should you be mayor? — being the same for both candidates, I have read through the articles repeatedly and have to admit I find them strange.
Here is the edited transcript of the interview… but they still leave me shaking my head. If you’ve read this blog, you know I sometimes provide transcripts and I try my best to keep them accurate. When I need to edit I try my best to punctuate properly, adding brackets for words that are [not stated], ellipsis for words that are left out of a quote and of courts [sic] to show the person being quoted used a wrong word like I just used “courts” above when I meant “course.” I’ve also done many interviews and these seem much too compact, much too planned sentence for sentence as if they were being read. I would have loved to have seen more of the give and take, back and forth between the interviewer and the candidates, as well as more follow-ups. And I certainly wonder about all the things that were said but not included. There is really nothing new in either of these interviews that hasn’t been said in one way or another at events, City Council meetings and other interviews.
The only thing that stood out for me was the Mayor’s willingness, as he did at the Mayoral Forum, to rag on Escondido for having poor people. The political correctness has put this city back probably 15 to 20 years. Now we have more low-income housing than North County cities combined. We have more illegal immigrants than North County cities combined. We have more social services than North County cities combined. Nothing against any of these issues in particular, none is a killer issue. But if you combine all of them, it will (make) the city the poorest in North County. Now if someone else had been Mayor for the last four years, I could understand making an attack based upon the fact that we have poor people living in our city, especially if it had been a liberal administration that the Mayor disagreed with. But the Mayor has had a conservative, pretty-much-unstoppable City Council majority for four years (along with six years as part of a conservative Council majority that launched frequent attacks) and his particular kind of war on poverty — starting with the poor people themselves — hasn’t really worked. There are many ways to run a campaign. I wish the Mayor would take a more positive approach, one that doesn’t need the City to look bad for him to look good.

The Stanfords owned a palatial Sacramento mansion where their only son, Leland Stanford Jr., was born; their home on San Francisco's Nob Hill was destroyed in the 1906 earthquake; today that home site is occupied by the Stanford Court Hotel. Stanford became a leading member of the Republican Party and was chosen as a delegate which selected U.S. presidential candidates in both 1856 (John C. Fremont) and 1860 (Abraham Lincoln). He was the first Republican Governor of California, serving two years from 1862 to 1863.
During his gubernatorial tenure, Stanford cut the state's debt in half, and advocated for the conservation of forests. He also oversaw the establishment of the California's first state normal (teacher’s) school in San José, later to become San José State University. During Stanford's governorship, the term of office changed from two years to four years, taking effect in 1864, after he left office. Stanford University was founded as a memorial to Leland Stanford, Jr., who died in 1884, of typhoid fever while on a family vacation in Italy. The Stanfords donated approximately $40 million (over $1 billion in 2014 dollars) to develop the university in Palo Alto. Stanford University’s first student was Herbert Hoover, who would later become President of the United States.
Stanford died of heart failure at his home in Palo Alto, on June 21, 1893. He was buried in the family mausoleum on the Stanford campus. Jane Stanford died in 1905, in a suspected murder while vacationing in Honolulu. She had been poisoned with strychnine. The killerwas never found, although it was suspected a member of her household probably was the culprit.

Superior Court and pleaded guilty to thirteen counts of burglary and theft. He was sentenced to seven months in jail—he'd already served all but a week of this, waiting for his case to be resolved. The sentence was far more lenient than it could have been, though even the prosecutor said a long prison term seemed cruel in this case. Chris was ordered to meet with a judge every Monday, and avoid alcohol, and either find a job or go to school. If he violated these terms, he could be sent to prison for seven years. Chris said he'd be returning home, to live with his mother. His beard was unruly—"my crazy hermit beard," he called it. He was alarmingly skinny; he itched all over. We still didn't make much eye contact.
He wished he could return to his camp—"I miss the woods"— but he knew by the rules of his release that this was impossible. "Sitting here in jail, I don't like what I see in the society I'm about to enter. I don't think I'm going to fit in. It's too loud. Too colorful. The lack of aesthetics. The crudeness. The inanities. The trivia." I told him I agreed with much of his assessment. But, I wondered, what about your world? What insights did you glean from your time alone? I had been trying to ask him these questions every visit, but now I pushed the point harder.
"What I miss most," he eventually continued, "is somewhere between quiet and solitude. What I miss most is stillness." He said he'd watched for years as a shelf mushroom grew on the trunk of a Douglas fir in his camp. I'd noticed the mushroom when I visited—it was enormous—and he asked me with evident concern if anyone had knocked it down. I assured him it was still there. In the height of summer, he said, he'd sometimes sneak down to the lake at night. "I'd stretch out in the water, float on my back, and look at the stars." He was never happy in his youth—not in high school, not with a job, not being around other people. Then he discovered his camp in the woods. "I found a place where I was content," he said. His own perfect spot. The only place in the world he felt at peace.
That was all he had to tell me. He'd grown weary of my visits. Please,: he begged, “leave me alone; we are not friends. I don't want to be your friend,: he said, “I don't want to be any-

eventually became the most powerful man in Egypt after the Pharaoh, partly because of his gift on interpreting dreams. In God’s plan, Joseph found himself in a place to save his brothers’ lives when famine came and the Egyptians, prompted by Joseph’s interpretation of Pharaoh’s dreams, conserved food during the good years to survive the famine. The brothers went to Egypt to buy food, not knowing that the man they asked was their brother. Joseph played with them a bit. Forced their hand in different ways, before he finally revealed himself and reconciled with his family.
Xoco has never had a home or family. Right now he needs to be adopted. The sooner he settles in to his new home…the better. Xoco was transferred to Rancho Coastal Human Society through the FOCAS program.
The Pastor Says . . .
Do you remember the story of Joseph, one of the early heroes of the Old Testament? Joseph was the second youngest of twelve sons of Jacob. He was also Jacob’s favorite and all his brothers knew it. Partly because Joseph reminded them often.
The ten older brothers got tired of it and conspired to kill Joseph. A couple of the brothers had second thoughts and, instead, persuaded the others to sell Joseph into slavery. Still, they let their father believe he was dead. Joseph kept his faith in God, and
Near the end of the story Joseph says, “You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good.” That’s easy to say at the end of the story, but hard to remember in the middle of the story. And most of life, for Joseph and for us, is lived in the middle of the story. Notice that Joseph made the statement. I don’t imagine he would have liked someone to come up to him while he was imprisoned and say, “Remember, God intends this for good.” So how do we get through the middle of the story in our lives? Just like Joseph did. Keep faith in God. Trust him.

Vista • Mayor Judy Ritter Improving Our Roads
The City of Vista’s goal is to provide the wellbest maintained streets for motorists. Both the Public Works and Engineering departments closely monitor the conditions of the streets and collaborate on an annual repair and resurfacing program. Over the years, the combination of heavy traffic, water (through cracks) and the aging of the asphalt contributes to the damage to the road. The City can resurface (slurry seal), overlay, or reconstruct the road completely to improve the condition of the road. Slurry seal is a protective layer that helps keep the pavement from oxidizing, weathering and cracking. It is a cost effective way to pro-

long the life of streets for about five to six years. Overlaying work requires removing 2 inches at the edges of the roadway and placing two inches over the whole road. Reconstruction is more involved and used when the road cannot be maintained by a slurry seal. Crews grind off the top layer of the old street surface and place a fresh surface of asphalt which provides an expected life of about 12-15 years to the road.

Carlsbad High School teacher, while their young children were in another room described her long-deteriorating marriage to a jury Monday.
She claimed her husband Jason often screamed and yelled at her, berated her, ridiculed her weight, called her names and eventually cut off her access to their joint checking account — instead giving her a monthly allowance of $260. The 39-year-old math teacher was shot to death on their bedroom floor Aug 7, 2012.
Harper told the jurors her story during three hours on the stand at the Vista courthouse. She is charged with murder and the use of a gun, and faces up to 50 years to life in prison if convicted.

San Marcos • Mayor Jim Desmond New parking rules come to San Marcos
Beginning in August, streets in the Barham/Discovery Industrial Park just north of Cal State San Marcos will be subject to new parking rules to improve parking space availability in the area and allow for regular street sweeping.
Parking along Industrial Street, East Carmel Street, Trade Street, La Moree Road, Venture Street, Hill Drive, Distribution Street, Production Street and Enterprise Street will be limited to two hours, effective 24 hours a day, seven days
per week. Additionally, no parking will be permitted Mondays between the hours of 7 and 10 am to accommodate street sweeping.
Creating no parking for street sweeping will help reduce the amount of litter that is washed down the storm drain and into our oceans. By also having the 2hour parking, more street spaces will be open for people looking to visit businesses in the area. For more information, please contact Housing and Neighborhood Service Director Karl Schwarm at firstname.lastname@example.org or (760) 744-1050, ext. 3108.

The Computer Store That Wouldn’t Die - Conclusion
Previously we covered 1995 through 2005 in the life of The Computer Factory. The years after 2005 brought many changes in the PC industry and most of them worked in our favor.
The PC industry is divided into two very different major segments, corporate and retail. Dell and HP are the biggest players in both segments but there is a huge difference in the products and services they offer. While neither company actually designs and manufactures the PCs that bear their logos, both companies provide higher quality products and dramatically better service to their corporate customers. The reason is simple. Corporations understand the importance of quality and service and are will-

In retail PC sales the emphasis is on price. The great majority of retail PC buyers have no concept of reliability, quality, performance or value. They buy what the salesman sells them, what they’ve seen on TV or whatever is cheapest. Manufacturers are constantly looking for ways to cut corners. Margins are thin and Dell and HP make most of their retail profits by selling ads on their retail PCs. When you turn on your new retail PC you find it stuffed with “bloatware” (Pop-ups, trial programs, banner ads and links). When you need some technical help you will find your call routed to Mumbai, Manilla, Bangalor or some other city in a low-rent country. Corporations would not stand for advertising on their workstations nor would they accept offshore technical service. But for retail customers, it's good enough.
local service. While Dell and HP need a double digit share of computer sales to stay profitable, if The Computer Factory had 1% of the business within 15 miles of our shop, we would need to expand. Another trend that favors our business is that while the big guys keep making their PC cheaper and their notebooks flimsier, we get to repair them.
Microsoft has also been a major contributor to our success. Every time they release a new operating system they ban the sale of its old one (only in retail, never in corporate). When the newest operating system is unpopular like ME, Vista, and Windows 8/8.1, it creates a wonderful opportunity for independents like The Computer Factory. Dell, HP and many Big
Box stores have contractual relationships with Microsoft that require them to obey Microsoft’s commands, we don’t. So while Best Buy, Staples, Office Depot etc watch the dust gather on the Windows 8 PCs they can’t sell, we are busy selling Win 7 notebooks, building Win 7 desktops, upgrading XP and Vista PCs to Windows 7 and downgrading Windows 8/8.1 to Windows 7 for those poor souls who found out too late that they didn’t like Windows 8/8.1. In summary it has been almost 20 years since we opened The Computer Factory. Our customers taught us early on that the best way to run a business is to focus on giving them what they want. It still works for us and there’s no end in sight.
Since there are no major PC makers who build quality products and provide good customer service for retail buyers, the great majority of retail customers simply accept the inevitable and continue to buy Dells and HPs.
Some home users have found that there is an alternative to “retail” PCs and small to medium size business who don’t fit the “corporate” profile have also discovered the middle ground between corporate and retail PCs Independent builders like The Computer Factory can provide PCs with higher quality and reliability with

which can only be seen as political cowardice. “Let the voters decide” sounds really good, until you look back at the vote you and the council took to not let the voters decide when declaring the property open space. I am not letting Olga off the hook regarding her vote in favor of that measure. I think she was wrong to vote for it, and I’ve told her so. But, now that there is a clear compromise option…whether the residents want to see it that way or not…she has seen fit to support it.
As for my “bias,” I am an opinion columnist. By definition, this means I have a bias. What you apparently ignore are the times I have defended you and commented favorably on things I have thought were done right by you and your colleagues. If you think I should blindly rubberstamp everything you say or do…or Olga does…or anyone else, you will be disappointed. That is not my role, and it’s not how I’m built.
You should also know I still have not made a decision on whom I will vote for in the upcoming election. I realize that through your lens you feel I have been unfair to you. That is your opinion. /s/Kirk Effinger Escondido, CA.
