SKIPPING THROUGH THAT LONESOME VALLEY
By Kent Ballard
When the news reports came about the death of Robin Williams, most folks were stunned. How could one of the funniest men in America be gone so suddenly, with no warning? Within hours the press informed us it was a suicide. Further reports went into more detail—damn their eyes—that he’d hanged himself with his belt and there were superficial cuts on his arms. I think that information should have been kept private for his family’s sake, but then I’m not a mega-conglomerate interested only in how much money I can rake in selling dog food and beer commercials.
Yes, I was offended. Because Robin Williams and I were from the same family, in a manner of speaking. In 1991 I was diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder, Type II. For 23 years I’ve been with the same psychiatrist. In that length of time he’s risen through the ranks to become the head of the Indianapolis Psychiatric Association, because he’s good, very good, at what he does. I’m lucky to have him. I clearly remember our first few talks. There is actually very little known about Bipolar Disorder, much less than you might think. Even the discovery that lithium can treat some portions of it was made by accident. To this day no one has a clue what it does or how it works but it’s the prime drug prescribed to bipolars. Everything about Bipolar Disorder is mysterious in some way. It used to simply be known as “manic-depression” which is actually more descriptive, but now considered politically incorrect.
The symptoms usually manifest themselves in the late teens to early twenties, but there are many exceptions. People can develop this in their 40′s or 50′s. In my case, when I pressed my shrink, asking him when Bipolar Disorder took The Paper - 760.747.7119

over my head, he gave me a straight answer: “Kent, you should have had lithium in your baby bottle. As nearly as I can tell, you were born with it. That’s rare, but not unheard of.” He then leaned in a bit closer, as if he wanted to get a point across to me in a manner that I would never forget. “Do you realize what that means? It means your entire sum total
of life experience was lived as a bipolar. Every book you ever read, every movie you ever saw, every conversation in your life, every friend you ever made, everything you ever learned, every date you ever went on, all of your experiences, every one, was lived through and understood and became part of you filtered through Bipolar Disorder.
You’ve never known anything else. You probably never will.”
As you might guess, THAT rocked me back on my heels. I sat there and blinked for some time, then quietly asked, “Doctor, are you telling me that…that I’m crazy?” No, quite the opposite was the case. Take a moment and do

something interesting. Google “famous bipolars” and see what you get. You’ll see a list of some of the world’s greatest artists, military leaders, composers, physicists, doctors, a whole galaxy of people you’ve studied in school or know about from their sheer fame. In that sense, I’m in wonderful company. What made them famous, regardless of their field of expertise, was their ability to think outside the box, to see around corners, to think thoughts and dream up concepts no one ever had before. As Patty Duke Austin wrote in her magnificent autobiography of a bipolar life, “A Brilliant Madness,” “Manic-depression is the only mental disorder with a GOOD side.” And it is. Believe me when I tell you there is no high like a bipolar high. If they could put that into a bottle the world would become addicted overnight. I’ve had moments of nearly superhuman strength, of being involved in affairs where people would later say I was either the bravest—or the craziest—person they had ever met, of days when I required no sleep, of having every child I ever met fall in love with me, the ability to tell almost instantly when I am being lied to, and ten thousand other

Two young boys walked into a pharmacy one day, picked out a box of tampons and proceeded to the checkout counter.
The pharmacist at the counter asked the older boy, 'Son, how old are you?' 'Eight', the boy replied.
The man continued, 'Do you know what these are used for?'
The boy replied, 'Not exactly, but they aren't for me. They're for him. He's my brother. He's four." "Oh, really?" the pharmacist replied with a grin.
"Yes." the boy said. "We saw on TV that if you use these, you
things that have been pretty handy over the years. But it’s no free ride. There is a price to pay for all this, one so heavy it literally kills people.
And this is what took Robin Williams. Sir Winston Churchill used to write about the “black dog” of depression in his private journals. Many bipolars have days when they cannot force themselves out of bed. And all bipolars drink. And they will drink to excess as soon as they can supply themselves with alcohol. I started at age 13 and never stopped until 1999, and it damned near killed me in the process. Science at least has an answer for that. They now know it to be a misguided–almost pitiful– attempt at self-medication. Go through YouTube and look at some of Williams’ work. Can you imagine how incredibly fast he must have been thinking? How he seems to come at you from all sides at once? How he appears to be almost maniacal in his thoughts? He wasn’t acting. Bipolars think faster than other people. But they often think so fast they become erratic. Watch enough of his films and sooner or later you’ll see spots where he was not controlling it. It was controlling him. The leading cause of death
would be able to swim, play tennis and ride a bike. Right now, he can't do none of those." Ancient Wisdom

among those with Bipolar Disorder is suicide. More bipolars die of that than any other cause. With typical perversity, it can simply pop into a bipolar’s mind that this is the answer to the questions they’ve asked all their lives. It can and will kill bipolars in mere minutes. A sudden depression so deep no human can withstand it. Also perversely, bipolars tend to leave behind cheerful suicide notes. My shrink told me fascinating stories of some he had read. Many were actually so happy and funny that he found himself laughing until he remembered what he was reading. Bipolar Disorder is not genetic. It is not passed via genes from parent to child. But it is “familial,” meaning it tends to run in families in odd spurts here and there. There were once three bipolars in my family. When my niece committed suicide she left a warm, loving note telling everyone how much she cared for them. Later, when they were cleaning her apartment, they found a note they’d overlooked. In her handwriting, Gina said there were clothes still running in the dryer, and would someone take them out?
Whatever overcame her took her that fast. She could not and would not wait for the dryer to finish its cycle.

"Mr. Barnes, are you not willing to forgive your enemies?" "I don't have any," he replied gruffly. "Mr. Barnes, that is very unusual. How old are you?"
"Ninety-eight," he replied. The congregation stood up and clapped their hands.
"Oh, Mr. Barnes, would you please come down in front and tell us all how a person can live ninety-eight years and not have an enemy in the world?"
So don’t think me cruel or uncaring when I say that Robin Williams’ death came as no surprise to me. I’ve had 23 years of training and counseling, learning never to listen to the voice of Death calling me. He’s never far away and I know that. He’s whispered to me more than once and I had the ability to run away. I’ve been careful and lucky so far. Mostly lucky. If you know someone who’s bipolar, tell them they can call you at any hour. You might make the difference for them. Generally, suicide is preventa-

I grabbed my bottle of Tide with bleach alternative, to my surprise and satisfaction, all of the stains came out! In fact, the stains came out so well the detectives who came by yesterday told me that the DNA tests on my blouse were negative.

When I got the telephone call in 2008 that my only daughter, Annie, had taken her life my mind flashed back to the several conversations we’d had about the subject. I warned her time and again this was a possibility for all of us, to be frightened of it and to call me, her mother, anyone if she ever felt suicidal. She never had the time to do that. It was as if she’d been cut down by a sniper. Annie loved life and ate it in big bites. She had more friends than I could count, had recently gotten an impressive promotion at her job and a new apartment. Everything was going great for her. Right up until the end.

ble among normally depressed people who’ve simply suffered a string of bad things which have happened to them. With bipolars it’s a crap shoot. Whatever hits us so suddenly, and with such speed and overwhelming force, there’s often nothing you can do except listen to your heart rip apart when you get the news they’re gone. But were these lives wasted? Not really, not in my opinion. Because when they were riding that high bipolar wave they had more fun than you will ever know. They laughed and enjoyed life and were brilliant and deeply, truly, knew they were loved and gave tremendous love in return. They were not candles in the wind. They were, and are, more like skyrockets. It’s only after they roar and shriek up to their zenith and dazzle us all with blinding lights of many colors that, after a moment, we realize how dark the night really is. But friend, when they were firing, they were magnificent. “My candle burns at both ends It will not last the night But oh my foes, and oh my friends It gives a lovely light” ~ Edna St. Vincent Millay

Five arrested for ripping off insurers for more than $600k Fraud ring used false life insurance applications to bilk insurers
California Department of Insurance detectives arrested Tyler Wilkinson, 37; Ian Frisch, 31; Ruben Banuelos, 63; Edward, 71; and Maxine Putnam, 68, on multiple felony charges of grand theft. The five suspects are accused of falsifying life insurance applications to collect more than $600,000 in commissions.
“Arresting the individuals behind this complex fraud conspiracy is another success for the department, insurers and all California insurance consumers,” said Insurance Commissioner Dave Jones. “Insurance crime is an expensive drain on our economy, resulting in higher costs for all consumers.” The investigation revealed a complex and lengthy scheme where Wilkinson would target victims through the use of cappers (people paid to recruit policy applicants) and finders to locate potential policyholders. Wilkinson would then submit the fraudulent application to insurers through Frisch, a former life insurance agent. The pair then profited by allowing the life and whole life policies to lapse after a year while retaining the commissions paid by the insurer for the initial policy application. Several insurers paid commissions totaling more than $600,000. This scheme began with three complicit life insurance applicants. The Putnams and Banuelos knowingly made false statements on life insurance applications allegedly working in cahoots with Wilkinson and Frisch. The policies were then allowed to lapse after just one year while the individuals involved profited from commissions. In June 2014, Banuelos and the Putnam’s were each charged with one felony count of grand theft, one count of great taking allegations.
Wilkinson and Frisch were booked in the San Diego County Jail with bail set at $600,000 for both.
Both are charged with four counts 487(a) PC Felony Grand Theft, along with the Aggravated White Collar Crime Enhancement 186.11 PC, and the Great Taking Allegation under 12022.6 PC.
The Cleveland Indians Chartered Bus Adventure
Naming the Indians in Ohio
" . . . a newspaper contest was held, and the winning entry "Indians," was chosen, submitted by a fan who said he was doing it in honor of the Chief, Louis Sockalexis." The name represents the Native American spirit that inspires the team, incorporates the tribe, and has earned the respect of their fans, friends, supporters for more than 100 years. This story is about one of the tribe's biggest fans, my Grandpa Will. To say my Grandpa Will Parks was a die-hard Indians fan is a gross understatement. He literally huddled by the radio to follow every broadcast game, and there was no interrupting tolerated. He kept score cards religiously in the early radio days, and when television found its way into Grandpa's living room, he followed the Reds and the Indians both, recording the games simultaneously. In the sweltering Ohio summers, his desk fan was placed strategically so as not to blow the big score cards across the room. Meantime, I was reading “Sheena of the Jungle” on the front porch swing, guzzling a Coke and tucking the old baseball sounds away for future reference. With summer coming on, I hear them now. Of major interest to this article is the fact that Grandpa was also a teetotaler of the Scots Methodist persuasion. A family experience with demon drink in his early years caused him to swear an oath of abstinence, which he honored his entire life. He once served a term as mayor of Smithfield, Ohio, during the Prohibition days and, as such, collected over $20,000 in
fines. He considered it one of his finest hours. He became a legend, but the sons of the 1950s barbershop crowd back in Ohio still tell this story on my Grandpa Will. It seems a group of men always took a bus from the Greyhound station in Columbus to Cleveland to see the home games, and invited Will, in a pestering sort of way. Number one, Will hated spending money and the bus was not a freebie. Number two, he was at odds with some of the crowd's drinking habits. They hammered at him until he finally relented, and one fateful Saturday paid his bucks and boarded the bus. Unfortunately, the boys were already beginning to imbibe. Will almost got off before the motor rumbled to a start and the air compression doors swung shut, sucking out his last clean breath. The guys also smoked. He really should have known better. The trip from Columbus to Cleveland was not what Grandpa relished and by the time they reached the stadium, the barbershop bunch was in full swing. He must have been punishing himself along every inch of highway until they reached their destination. When they were installed in one long row, Will was in the end seat, meaning he would be the man to pass the beers down to the rowdies. Needless to say, but I will, his trip was in ruins, his generally staid mood was soured even more. He vowed to steer clear of bus trips to Cleveland and would limit his views of the great Bobs, Lemon and Feller, to television, newspapers and magazines. He probably cut his own hair for a while after that, as well. The author, Barbara Miller, lives in Carlsbad.

San Marcos Dentist License Revoked. She Still Practices Dentistry
The Dental Board of California Consumer Affairs has revoked the license of Dr. Valentina Obradovic to practice dentistry as a result of a number of verified complaints of gross negligence, repeated acts of gross negligence and unprofessional conduct including excessive treatment. Dr. Obradovic did not contest the charges.
Dr. Obradovic was oardered to pay $7500 to reimburse the Dental Board for the costs of investigation into the accusations against her. The board stayed the revocation of her license contingent upon her being placed on probation, paying for the costs of monitoring her probation, taking a class in remedial education and in ethics.
Dr. Obradovic has been an advertiser in The Paper but when the publisher, lyle e davis, learned of the charges against her he canceled her advertising order and would accept no further advertising orders from her. “The charges against Dr. Obradovic were serious ones,” said Davis. “The accusations against her, which she did not deny, showed an unscrupulous series of actions
against totally unsuspecting patients, who were charged outlandish fees, often for dental services that were later proven to be unneccesary.
We did not want to help lead our readers, through her advertising, to a dentist we did not feel should be in the profession. That the Dental Board would place her on probation amazes and concerns us. We disagree with that decision and think her license should have been permanently revoked. Though she is able to practice dentistry while on probation, we will still not accept her advertising.” Woman Files Sexual Harrassment Suit against Carlsbad PD

As you’re read here before, my good friend, Pastor Dick Huls (retired) and I often meet for coffee at Major Market in south Escondido.
We will spend an hour to two hours together talking about everything under the sun and solving all the problems of the world. It’s a perfect, relaxed place to meet for discussions of major world import Pastor Huls and I have come ups with solutions to most of the world’s problems. Now it’s just a question of getting the world leaders to listen and act on our suggestions. That, too, will come. In time.

I favor the chili because it is loaded with delicious meat, some beans, and the chili broth (though I wouldn’t object if they toned down the chili powders just a tad.) Very filling. A bit expensive at $3.99 for the small cup and $6.99 for the large cup . . . but well worth the investment as you get some great chili! Next time I shall try the Egg Drop Soup, another of my favorites. They are great soups, always ready at
Letters to the Editor
All of my friends, in and out of the military, wish to thank The Paper for not becoming a clone and jumping aboard the bandwagon by writing yet another article on bipolar disorders. We were so saddened by the recent death of my favorite comedian, Robin Williams, but the avalanche of bipolar articles has served its purpose and enough is enough. There are many other causes of suicide besides bipolar, such as divorce, loss of job, death in the family, bullying (both in school and cyber-bullying), PTSD, and so on. All of my friends and I in the military certainly are aware of PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) which was thrust upon many of peers

While at Major Market I also picked up some okra as I know Evelyn, having grown up way down south in Oklahoma, you know, that state w h e r e everyone talks kinda funnylike? I also picked up a salad made of sliced tomatoes, mozarella cheese and basil - with just the right amount of dressing and spices.
Lots of good eats to shop for at Major Market. I enjoy shopping there. Sushi, Chinese Food, salads, seafood, live lobster, and the staff is right down home friendly. This past Saturday found me buying a bouquet of beautiful flowers which highlighted red flowers. I bought these as a little surprise for Evelyn. I had to grab the red bouquet as the day I met her she was all decked out in red. Red high heels, red nylons, red dress, red hair, and, as I recall, red lipstick. She looked right fetching, she did. She seemed
who were exposed to the horrors in Iraq and Afghanistan, Bipolar disorders are very important to study but these articles are often written at the expense of never listing an overview of other causes of suicide. A military friend of mine recently took a psychology class and the professor gave the class an assignment on the topic of suicide. The professor wrote on the blackboard all the names of famous people who have, or had, the bipolar disorder! Why? Because he explained that he wanted his students to be creative and not predictable. Everyone and their aunt Susie wants to start out their bipolar articles all the same generic way: list all the famous people who were afflicted by bipolar disorder.
The professor quoted the famous poet, Robert Frost, and his poem "The Road Not Taken." To his students he turned and said, "Be creative. Not predictable. Be exciting. Not boring. Take the Road Less Traveled." The professor was so happy to receive papers from his students that were all exciting to read. All fresh. All differently approached. None of the student papers were generic. And not all of the papers were bipolar. Imagine that.

Ray Ellis of Escondido Coin and Loan was the guest speaker at this week’s Hidden Valley Kiwanis Club of Escondido. He discussed a variety of coins that have been minted, some of which have very hgh value. One silver dollar, for example, is priced at $3,000.
He also has an Escondido $5 bill that was issued by one of the early Escondido banks. There are only four existing that he is aware of. He had no intention of selling that $5 bill and, in fact, has turned down an offer of $60.000 for it. A former principal he showed his knowledge of history as well.
“Plaintiff was subjected to various sexually explicit, demeaning and disparaging remarks by her coworkers and supervisors, including Defendant May,” the lawsuit says. “Defendants have created a hostile work environment not only to Plaintiff, but to other similarly-situated female employees.”
The 24-year-old Murrieta resident told us that in addition to specific acts of harrassment by May that there was “an old boy network” within the department that protected one another and that she, as an officer during her probationary period, was in a particularly weak position to rebuff his advances but also to seek relief as she could be fired for any reason at all. She seeks an unspecified amount of money in damages for “cruel and unjust hardship.” May retired from the force in December no manages an Oceanside-based real estate
investment company. Neither he nor city officials would comment for this story.
According to the lawsuit, the female officer joined the department in April 2011, completed the police academy and was sworn in on Jan. 25, 2012.
At 3:30 a.m. on Sept. 5, 2012, the lawsuit says Doe was instructed on her patrol car computer to call May at his home, and, “At approximately 3:45 a.m., Plaintiff called Defendant MAY and he told Plaintiff that he was ‘lying in bed’ and stated he ‘was thinking of [Plaintiff],’" according to the lawsuit. The plaintiff claims fellow officers told her May “had a history of inappropriate sexual behavior and to be cautious around him,” and witnessed him following her around the city in his patrol car, the lawsuit says. Presumably, those fellow officers will be deposed and their testimony used should the matter go to court rather than settle.
The lawsuit also claims that May’s conduct was discussed in a senior management meeting “but no corrective action was taken.” Instead, the lawsuit says, Internal Affairs began
investigating Doe in March 2013.

well as additional exposure to liability.
During the final weeks of this legislative session, several bills came before the Senate which were considered “job killers” by the state Chamber of Commerce. Though some sounded appealing, these bills would ultimately place even more regulations on businesses.
For instance, to promote employee health and productivity, many employers already offer paid sick leave, with policies tailored to the staffing needs industries. their of However, AB 1522 would mandate a one-size-fits-all approach. Even for busipolicies with nesses already in compliance, this bill would burden businesses with excessive reporting requirements, as
This one-size-fits-all approach is why I have long advocated for a legislature that listens to the business community and introduces legislation to address the specific needs of different size businesses in different industries. Good paying jobs and a strong economy should not be partisan issues.
To help businesses hire more Californians and pay employees better wages, we need to remove the state obstacles that make it difficult for companies to do so. We need to put California back to work!

Kirk’s Column by Kirk Effinger
Are Those Helicopters I Hear?
I cannot say that I have ever subscribed to the anti-government paranoia of the black helicopter crowd.
I will admit to harboring deepseated suspicions about the Internal Revenue Service and the way it conducts its affairs in the name of our federal government. The fact that bureaucrats are left to navigate and interpret the thicket of arcane tax codes and laws promulgated by a Congress that most often is more interested in how it will affect re-election prospects rather than whether it is good policy is, in and of itself, a recipe for disaster.
Marilyn Shea Attorney
While it should not be all that surprising to many that some within the IRS abuse their authority---after all, stories of this type have been around for decades---the fact that they are finally getting the airing they deserve is heartening.
Anyone who knows the history of J. Edgar Hoover’s long reign at the FBI surely is aware that one of the keys to that longevity was the leverage he gained by (usually illegally) investigating and thus knowing the darkest secrets of our nation’s leaders. It is doubtless the impunity with which IRS bureaucrats have been able to exact punishment on taxpayers who find themselves guilty until proven innocent---often with assets seized without court action---is the threat that has surely hung over any prior investigation by Congress into their behavior. Their pattern of seizures of the assets of those least able to defend themselves is the stuff of legend. As is their inability to collect anything more than cents-on-the-dollar from the major league tax cheats who surround themselves with hired-gun accountants, lawyers, and politicians. IRS employees abusing their

When it came time for Al and Jean to be the hosts, Jean wanted to outdo all the others. She decided to have mushroom-smothered steak. But mushrooms are expensive. She then told her husband, "No mushrooms. They are too high."
He said, "Why don't you go down in the pasture and pick some of those mushrooms? There are plenty in the creek bed." She said, "No, some wild mushrooms are poison."
He said, "Well, I see varmints eating them and they're OK." So Jean decided to give it a try. She picked a bunch, washed, sliced, and diced them for her smothered steak.
Then she went out on the back porch and gave Ol' Spot (the yard dog) a double handful. Ol' Spot ate every bite. All morning long, Jean watched Ol' Spot and the wild mushrooms didn't seem to affect him, so she decided to use them.
The meal was a great success, and Jean even hired a helper lady from town to help her serve. After everyone had finished, they relaxed, socialized, and played '42' and dominoes. About then,
Historically Speaking by Tom Morrow
‘A Most Dangerous Man’
He is best-remembered as Scarlet O’Hara’s unrequited love, and the illusive Scarlet Pimpernel, but to Nazi Germany’s Joseph Goebbels he was “a most dangerous man.” Leslie Howard was like no other movie star. Howard was an English-born stage and screen actor, directorproducer, who starred in some of our best-known films: “Berkeley Square” (1933), “Of Human Bondage” (1934), “The Scarlet Pimpernel” (1934), “The Petrified Forest” (1936), “Pygmalion” (1938), “Intermezzo” (1939), “Gone With The Wind” (1939),
the helper lady came in and whispered in Jean's ear.
She said, "Mrs. Williams, Ol' Spot is dead."
Jean went into hysterics. After she finally calmed down, she called the doctor and told him what had happened. The doctor said, "That's bad, but I think we can take care of it. I will call for an ambulance and I will be there as quickly as possible. We'll give everyone enemas and we will pump out everyone's stomach. Everything will be fine. Just keep them calm." Soon they could hear the siren as the ambulance was coming down the road. The EMTs and the doctor had their suitcases, syringes, and a stomach pump. One by one, they took each person into the bathroom, gave them an enema, and pumped out their stomach. The scene was not pretty. After the last one was finished, the doctor came out and said, "I think everything will be fine now," and he left. They were all looking pretty weak sitting around the living room and about this time the helper lady came in and whispered to Jean, "You know, that fellow that run over Ol' Spot never even stopped."
See you next week with more Chuckles!
“Pimpernel Smith” (1941), and “The First of the Few (1942).
What isn’t so well known was his production of anti-Nazi propaganda films as well as his alleged involvement with British Intelligence, which probably led to his death. He was born Leslie Howard Steiner in 1893, to a British Christian mother and a Hungarian Jewish father. During World War I, the family changed their name to "Stainer,” a less German-sounding moniker. During the War Howard served as a British Army officer, but suffered shell shock and was discharged in 1916.
His son, Ronald Howard (1918–1996), became an actor and was noted for portraying the title character in the 1954 BBC television series,“Sherlock Holmes.” Widely known as a ladies' man, Howard once described his amorous adventures thusly: “I didn't chase women, but I couldn't always be bothered to run away.” Howard died in 1943 on a flight from Bristol, England to Lisbon, Portugal. According to German documents, the KLM/BOAC air-

authority to harass small-fry taxpayers is one thing; abusing taxpayers by wasting the revenue they raise is another altogether. There has been plenty of documented evidence the IRS hasn’t done a particularly good job of collecting taxes owed. But that hasn’t stopped them from elaborate spending on conferences, “motivational” videos, etc. at taxpayer expense. It kind of begs the question: Are they aggressively collecting taxes because it’s “their” money, or ours?
And then there’s this: recently, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder decided his aggressive investigation into the leaking of information sensitive to “national security” entitled his Justice Department to seize phone records of legitimate news gathering agencies and conduct criminal investigations into reporter’s activities. As will become all too apparent at our local level as time goes by, if reporters cannot or will not cover stories about government then no one pays attention. While trying not to sound unduly alarmist, this truly is how totalitarian governments gain power.

Your 8/21/2014 article ("DUI Enforcement Results") did not mention the number of drivers who ran the gauntlet at this checkpoint. Unlike people lining up to enter a park, where the attendant's role is to expedite entry to a pleasurable event, here we have uniformed authority figures whose function is to apprehend you for doing something wrong. Often, checkpoints are across from the police station, probably to heighten driver apprehension. They are never in upscale areas, or in areas with numerous restaurants or bars. Most cities have checkpoints from 8:00 PM until 2 to 3 AM, nabbing drunks coming home from bars. In Escondido, checkpoints are from 6 PM to Midnight, when bars are still open. The latest published press release ( 8/23/2014) lists 1389 drive-throughs and 2 DUIs. Clearly, the batting average for DUI enforcement is lousy. What other reasons can be given for this inefficient program?
The press release states that "Funding was provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, etc." So, the lure is that it is FREE. Now, there is no such thing as a "Free Lunch." This grant reduces monies available for highway maintenance which
would directly improve our safety, instead of nabbing a couple of drunks. The grant more than covers the cost of the program, so where are the excess funds being diverted? Finally, contracts to the towing companies run in excess of $400,000, so this entire operation is a money maker for Escondido.
I am told that DUI checkpoints should not concern persons if they are innocent of wrongdoing. The National Security Agency uses this excuse for rampant surveillance of the U.S. public. Orwell's book, 1984, describing a police state where "Big Brother is Watching," aptly illustrates the similarity in these situations. I conclude that the primary function of checkpoints is to Project Raw Police Power, in order to intimidate and control the public. This is an outrageous but direct consequence of the Patriot Act, which has curtailed our freedoms in the interest of "security", and allowed such egregious behavior to be condoned. This leads to negative reactions from the public, with a further escalation of Police Power, in an ever-increasing spiral. Sorab K. Ghandhi, Professor Escondido CA

liner was shot down near German-occupiedBordeaux, France. Reportedly, the German pilots were angry at their squadron commander for not informing the DC-3 was a civilian aircraft.
They said they could easily have escorted the DC-3 to Bordeaux. The pilots photographed the wreckage in the Bay of Biscay, and after the war the photographs were sent to the Howard's family.
The backstory version: the Germans believed Prime Minister Winston Churchill was on board. Later, Churchill expressed sorrow that mistake might have cost Howard his life. Churchill’s bodyguard later wrote Churchill, at times, seemed clairvoyant, and, acting on a premonition, changed his departure to the following day. Speculation by historians also have centered on whether British code breakers had decrypted top-secret Enigma messages outlining the assassination plan, and Churchill may have wanted to protect the codebreaking operation so the Germans wouldn’t suspect their Enigma machines had been compromised. His son, Ronald, investigated the German orders in great detail, as well as British communiqués verifying intelligence reports indicating a deliberate attack on his father’s plane. He speculated the Germans were aware of Churchill's real whereabouts and were not so naive as to believe the PM would be travelling alone, unescorted on an unarmed civilian aircraft. Ronald was convinced the order to shoot down the airliner came directly from Joseph Goebbels, Nazi Minister of Propaganda. One of Leslie Howard's films ridiculed the Nazi. Goebbels believed Howard to be “a most dangerous British propagandist.” In novelist William Stevenson’s “A Man Called Intrepid,” he speculated the Germans knew of Howard's mission and ordered the aircraft shot down. Stephenson further claimed Churchill knew of the German plan, but allowed it to proceed to protect the fact that the British had broken the German Enigma code.
CIA agent Joseph B. Smith recalled that, in 1957, he was briefed by the National Security Agency on Leslie Howard's death. The NSA claimed Howard knew his aircraft was to be attacked by German fighters and sacrificed himself to protect the British code-breakers. Whatever is true, Leslie Howard was one helluva patriot and actor.
Would You Consider Helping Save Rescued Dogs by Fostering Them?
The Puppy Coalition Foundation rescues many dogs from regional kill shelters. These dogs are often rescued on their last day of life in these “shelters.”
The recipe for providing a foster home for a rescued dog is simple: 1.) A little space for a doggie bed somewhere in your home. We will even provide a bed. 2.) Spend a little time with the dog to go out and do “their business” and get some exercise walking. We like to suggest a at least 45 minutes over the course of the day. More is great. These dogs are housebroken. 3.) Then add love. These dogs crave love because in the preceding months they have gotten little and they all yearn for close relationships with humans. The Puppy Coalition will provide dog food and handle veterinary needs.
We will work around your schedule to show the foster dogs to those who may be interested and potential adopters.

Pastor Richard Huls, Retired Changing Your World
A friend and I were discussing world events recently which covered the Middle East, Russia and Ukraine, the Far East with China and her neighbors, the political situation in the U.S., the Muslim immigration to Europe, and many other conflicts our world faces. I could see the tremendous frustration in her face as a true sense of helplessness overwhelmed her. Then she asked, “What can I do? I am only one person just trying to stay alive.” I felt for her in the struggle she had longing for peace and some stability in our swiftly changing world. She, along with others including myself, are victims of forces greater than ourselves. These forces often lead to cynicism, despair, painful resolu-
Since our conversation, I have been thinking about what can be done by an average individual. St. Francis of Assisi, a twelfth century monk, gave us a prayer which is always relevant, ”Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.” Another famous expression comes from the religious order, the Christophers, “It is better to light one candle than to curse the darkness.” These sayings can inspire each of us to give some light, love, hope, joy, and peace where we are. The person sharing with me runs a humble pizza business along with her husband. Many of their customers are handicapped. Yet, these business owners welcome them with a warm and sincere greeting and go out of their way to make them feel welcomed and comfortable. Candles are lit in these difficult lives. I personally share in a ministry called Dial a Prayer. This is a daily recorded message and prayer which people call for inspiration, guidance, some Scripture, prayer, and a thought for the day.

Escondido • Mayor Sam Abed Daley Ranch House Tours Starting in October
Beginning on October 12, 2014, Escondido Rangers will begin offering monthly tours of the Daley Ranch House. The tours will be held the second Sunday of each month, from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Rangers will lead the tours/presentations, with volunteers from the Friends of Daley Ranch assisting.
The Ranch House was built in 1928 out of single-board heart redwood. It was used primarily by the Daley Family for summer entertaining since its one-board thickness made it too cold for year-round living. The great room features a massive stone fireplace made of cobblestones that
were brought around the Cape by clipper ship. The great room also has beautiful single wall tongue and groove redwood walls, which are original, as is the hardwood floor. The original light fixtures were made by Escondido blacksmiths, and still hang from the tall ceiling.
This past year, renovations were completed on the Ranch House and grounds and it is now available to rent for weddings and other private or corporate events.
For information on renting the Ranch House, please contact Teresa Collins, Special Events/Economic Development Coordinator at 760839-4507 or firstname.lastname@example.org. For general information about the City of Escondido, please visit www.escondido.org
Vista • Mayor Judy Ritter Preparing for Wildfire

The key is to design a plan for wildfire, prepare your home and surroundings, and practice fire-safe activities. Following are tips to better protect your family and home.
Long before fire threatens, • plan your evacuation.

The Paper • Page 12 • September 04, 2014 as start-up VP of Operations for Packard Bell going from start-up to a billion dollar a year PC maker in just two years. Over the years Nome also worked for several high tech companies (Belden Corp, Westinghouse, Control Data, FMC, Volker-Craig and BEI.) Her specialties were process controls and project management. In several companies we worked together.

The Computer Store that wouldn’t die - Part I
In January of 1995 Vision Technologies, a PC manufacturer located in Vista, offered us a contract to come in and clean up Vision with an eye toward optimizing the company’s market value as an acquisition for a larger company. Since 1975 I had specialized in managing companies in start-up and turn-around environments. First as Director of Manufacturing for NCR Canada leading a team to build and operate a new one thousand employee facility in Waterloo Ontario. Next as Director of Operations in a turn-around environment for an NCR acquisition in the Silicon Valley. Then to San Diego as VP of Operations for a new United Telecommunications acquisition (Megatek) managing a fivefold growth in four years and finally
Why Local Politics Really Matter
When I tell someone I write a blog about governance and politics I often get variations on this response: “I’m so busy, I really don’t know what’s going on. It doesn’t matter anyway.”
When someone who lives in Escondido says that, I want to scream buy them a coffee, sit them down and explain that it does matter and they need to know what’s going on. Here’s why. Miriam Webster Dictionary defines politics as activities that relate to influencing the actions and policies of a government or getting and keeping power in a government. For the Mayor of Escondido along with the Deputy Mayor and three Council members that means deciding how to spend the money that comes into the City via taxes, fines, fee and grants — this year’s budget totaled about $82 million. And what can they spend that money on? It is up to them. It is also generally agreed that
Vision Technologies made PCs for electronics distributors and catalogue stores. I went to work as VP of Operations and Nome started cleaning up materials handling and distribution. In July the company accepted a buyout offer from BTC, an Asian conglomerate. BTC wanted the Vision name and distribution channels but not the inventory. We had already worked up a plan to establish a Vision Technologies Factory Outlet Store so we did a handshake partnership with Vision’s owner and moved all the Vision inventories into the six thousand square foot site vacated by the San Marcos Library when they moved to their new location in the present San Marcos City Government complex. The plan was for Nome and I to manage a wholesale/retail operation aimed at turning the inventory into cash. We would build PCs and sell components until the inventory was gone and then we would close the store. We estimated this would take about one year. Neither Nome nor I had any experience dealing with retail computer sales, in fact, neither of us had ever been inside a computer store.
elected officials have the power to make decisions on municipal election matters and land use and zoning. What does this mean on a practical basis? How does it affect our everyday lives? If there is an empty lot in your neighborhood, the City Council can allow a private citizen to build a house there or allow a businessman to put a car wash there or can decide to turn it into a neighborhood park.
If there is a community center your kids like to go to, the City Council can decide what hours it will be open, what programs it will offer and whether people will have to pay to participate. They can also decide to close it down and sell it to someone who wants to use it for a private venture. If your street has potholes and your sidewalks are nonexistent, the City Council can choose to ignore the problems or fix the potholes and build some sidewalks.
If there are kids in your neighborhood getting into trouble, the City Council can deal with it by making more arrests, concentrating on community collaboration efforts or keeping the local gym open in the evening. This last example illustrates
Since we had absolutely no preconceived notions about how a computer store was supposed to be managed, we really had no choice but to let our customers tell us how they thought a computer store should work. Our business model became what is known in industry as “user defined.” It seemed to work for us and our customers. As we continued to build PCs we began to run out of some components so we had to reestablish old vendor contacts and start buying new components. After six months we were mostly selling new components and building new PCs with newly purchased components. The business had begun to take on a life of its own and it was difficult to see an end point. Nome and I were enjoying the challenge and it was fun
how a problem can be looked at and dealt with in different ways. I think we would all agree that the police and fire department play a major role in public safety. But what other areas of government have an effect? Code enforcement can make sure a building doesn’t become a fire hazard. A senior center can give older residents a place to stay cool when they don’t have air conditioning. A community center can give kids a safe place to play. Libraries can help students do better in school and help people write resumes. Together, all of these things can be a part of providing public safety. But it is the Mayor and City Council that will make the final decisions on what gets funded and what does not. There are always occasions that bring people out to public meetings. In the last few years that included concerns about the closing of the East Valley Branch Library, cuts in Recreation funding, plans to build on land that will now become El Caballo Park, a proposal to lease Kit Carson Park land for a for-profit water park, the Escondido Country Club initiative — there are many more that could be added to the list. But no matter how many people came to those meetings, the final decision was up to the five sitting on the dais.
working with people and solving problems. Our employees had become family and we didn’t want to let them down. We didn’t have any better plans so we made the decision to just keep on doing what we were doing. We bought our partner out.
Our industry savvy friends told us that PCs were becoming a commodity product like calculators. They told us there was no way we could build PCs and compete with the major American PC manufacturers like Gateway. Compaq, Packard Bell and Dell. Conventional wisdom said that mega stores like Comp USA, Good Guys, Office Depot, Radio Shack, Incredible Universe, Circuit City and Best Buy would run us out of business with lower cost parts and service. Tune in next week for the further adventures of “the computer store that wouldn’t die.”
And so in the end, it is really important that we know something about local politics. This year that means knowing who is running for office, what they believe, what they support and what they have done. It is equally important to register to vote. Because come November the majority of the City Council will be up for election. Who wins those three seats will be making decisions for the next four years on how every penny of our City budget will be spent. And that definitely matters.
