by lyle e davis It was four years ago this month that Bill Ballance died. Those of
us who knew and worked with him readily acknowledge that he was a radio legend. He was a living legend until Thursday, September 23rd, 2008, when he died at age 85.
In this retrospective of Bill Ballance, perphaps you, too, will get an idea of what it was like to work with him. •••••
Readers of The Paper are generally of an age where it is likely they were listening to the radio during the magical years of Bill Ballance's career. Those who
didn't listen to him probably at least have heard of him. Bill Ballance started the radio version of the women's sexual revolution of the late 1960s and early 1970s. Racy and confessional, the show drew many listeners, both male and female, with topics such as "Where did his love go and how did you know it was gone?" and "Are you a red-hot mama?" Bill had been a top-40 radio personality when he discovered his audience was largely that of women. It was then he created his "Feminine Forum" program and he literally skyrocketed to fame. His most lasting claim in Southern California radio was that he was the first to openly
address sexuality, issues of sexual intercourse and sexual preference. By 1972 his "Feminine Forum" was syndicated in a number of major cities, and simulcast in San Diego. Bill gave the phone lines over to the ladies and listened. He wouldn't even call them housewives. They were women in Bill's mind educated and intelligent - and he treated them that way. Between calls, he played the hits. Bill was profiled in every major publication in the country, as well as the London Times and a Cosmopolitan cover story. Time magazine said, "Bill has many imitators, but no rivals." For all the attention his show attracted, Bill did it with taste.
Page 2 - September 6, 2012 ‘Remembering a Legend’ Cont. from Page 1 He knew the line not to cross. His brilliant command of the language prevented his show from being dirty. I worked with Bill Ballance when he and I both were at KFMB Radio in San Diego. I first met him shortly after he had signed his contract with the station. Someone introduced me and he immediately clasped my hand and said. . . "Yes! I've heard of Lyle Davis! I've listened to you and admire your work. I'm very much looking forward to working with you." I was incredulous. Here I was, doing the morning and afternoon traffic reports for KFMB and I had just met a Living Legend and he was making over me like I was the star, not him. He had just proven that he was as adept at charming guys as he was the ladies. I was thrilled to not only have met the man but to know I'd be working side by side with him. I did the traffic reports from 4pm to 6pm and Billo, as he was affectionately known, came on
Give Us This Day Our Daily Chuckle
This week, a compendium of wit, wisdom and neat stuff you can tell at parties. Enjoy! Don't Ask the Question if You Don't Already Know the Answer The pastor of his Baptist church had called all of the little children to the front of the church, dressed in their cute Easter outfits and had them sit around him. He said "Today is Easter and you all look so handsome and beautiful. Today we're going to talk about the resurrection. Does anyone know what the resurrection is?" One little boy raised his
at 6pm till midnight. He would often arrive around 5pm and spend the next hour preparing for his show, going over his voluminous notes, checking out his material, which he carried in a milk carton sized plastic case, all organized, neatly. Many of Bill's clever on-the-air and impromptu bits were well thought out and planned way before the microphone came on. He demonstrated every day what a true professional he was, always preparing, always ready to go . . . investing probably the same number of hours off-theair as he did presenting his work on-the-air. Come 6pm and it was showtime! Bill Ballance was on the air! The phone lines would already be lit up as anxious listeners, mostly women, awaited their few minutes of fame, talking to 'ol Billo.' Some of the Bill Ballance earcatchers were, "Muggers demand your money or your life. Wives demand both"; "The severest form of intimacy is shared silence"; "Marry in haste, repent insolvent," and "Love is a one-way ticket on that emotional shuttle craft between heaven and hell."
He was a bit of a rascal . . . and if there was a female within 20' of him, he would home in on her, or them, and charm them continually. Didn't matter if it was a young college co-ed or a matronly grandma, if they were female they were on Bill's radar. And he was good at it . . . oh, was he good! He was an agile bachelor at the time and claims to have been looking for a third and final wife --- “one with a large, accessible dowry and at least five good, serviceable teeth, preferably in front.” He was known for his many bon mots that he would drop whimsically: “A fool and his money are soon married.” “Marriage is a great improvement over other forms of warfare.” “A woman will believe anything if it’s about her husband.” He has also been known to implement the fine art of invective as only “Billo” could do it. When asked about Women’s Lib Leaders:
Bill was pretty much the same off-the-air as he was on-the-air.
“Hairy-legged, harsh, strident porkers rhino with great charg-
hand, and the pastor said "Please tell us what the resurrection is."
The neighbor said that since she was up early with her toddler anyway, it would be a good way for them to get some exercise as well, so she agreed.
The boy, proud that he knew the answer, said in a clear loud voice "When you get one lasting more than four hours, you gotta call a doctor!" It took a solid 10 minutes before the pastor could speak and there was so much laughter going on that his sermon was probably forgotten - but that boy's voice won't be. School Daze A mother was concerned about her kindergarten son, Timmy, walking to school. He didn't want his mother to walk with him. She wanted to give him the feeling that he had some independence but yet know that he was safe. So she had an idea of how to handle it. She asked a neighbor if she would please follow him to school in the mornings, staying at a distance, so he probably wouldn't notice her.
The next school day, the neighbor and her little girl set out following behind Timmy as he walked to school with another neighbor girl he knew. She did this for the whole week. As the two walked and chatted, kicking stones and twigs, Timmy 's little friend noticed the same lady was following them as she seemed to do every day all week. Finally she said to Timmy, 'Have you noticed that lady following us to school all week? Do you know her?'
ing rhino haunches and dragonbreath,” he said. I had heard that Billo had a temper . . . but I never saw it. We got along just great. From one of his sons, Jimmy Ballance: Willis Bennett Ballance could be formidable in his temper. He did not gladly suffer fools. Dad was generous with friends, though. He respected good minds. I knew he was self conscious about his age, refusing to answer any queries about age. He also favored turtleneck sweaters. We were all sure that this was to mask the wrinkles on his neck. We thought he wore a rug (toupee') but we were never sure . . . and we respected him too much to ask. Again, his son, Jimmy Ballance: "My Pop made no secret of his toupee, his rug. Sometimes as a gag, he'd wear it askew. I think he liked the look and feel of turtlenecks. If he could avoid the daily knotting of a tie, he would. The turtleneck gave a certain dressiness, however, above the usual open neck.
‘Remembering a Legend’ Cont. on Page 3 daughter Marcy ...' 'Shirley Goodnest? Who is she and why is she following us? 'Well,' Timmy explained, 'every night my Mum makes me say the 23rd Psalm with my prayers, 'cuz she worries about me so much. And in the Psalm, it says, 'Shirley Goodnest (surely goodness) and Marcy (mercy) shall follow me all the days of my life', so I guess I'll just have to get used to it!' The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make His face shine upon you, and be gracious unto you; the Lord lift His countenance upon you, and give you peace. May Shirley Goodnest and Marcy be with you today and always. Tiger & the Irishman and his Mercedes
The little girl said, 'Well, who is she?'
On a golf tour in Ireland, Tiger Woods drives his Mercedes into a filling station in a remote part of the Irish countryside.
'That's just Shirley Goodnest,' Timmy replied, 'and her

Timmy nonchalantly replied, 'Yeah, I know who she is.'

â€˜Remembering a Legendâ€™ Cont. from Page 2 And too, Dad, when asked about his age, would reply, "I don't know how old I am ... but my birth records were burned at Valley Forge." Another thing about age: he projected manly appeal to the myriad ladies, sitting at home in their tragic little housedresses. It never hurt to allow a young and available image to make itself felt in the public." He didn't party a lot with staffers, but that could easily be because he didn't get off the air till midnight and the rest of us, being young innocents, were probably at home, tucked into our beddy-byes. Ballance started in major market radio in Denver . . . then joined the Marines during WWII, serving from 1942 to 1946, mustering out as a Captain. He also developed a fascination with military history and was recognized as such a strong Civil War buff that many also recognized him as an expert in that world as well as broadcasting. Again, Jimmy Ballance: "You invoke the Civil War (War for Southern Independence); Pop used to interview a couple of the elderly soldiers. His hundreds of volumes about the great conflict fill many shelves. Papacito also toured many battlefields in the various states. Some with his old buddy Sheridan Van Dolah and some with his uncle, USMC General Bob Ballance. Van Dolah and Dad met when they were, say nine or ten, I think. Sheridan had just moved into Peoria from a magnificent La Jolla shoreline home. As teenagers, each summer for three years, the both of them toured every state in the union via their redoubtable Model A Ford. A place that Dad particularly loved was the jewel of a town, La Jolla, which forty years later became his home in 1978. My father (later) bought a house in what is known as the Golden Triangle; Pop used to refer to this neighborhood as "the lunch pail La Jolla." It is also known as the University City area, I think." As his career in broadcasting progressed, he would move to Los Angeles where he worked at KNX, KFWB, KGIL, KGBS, KABC and KWIZ. When his "Feminine Forum" program became controversial and the owners of KGBS failed to support Bill and his program for
fear of FCC repercussions, Bill moved to KFMB-San Diego, (1978-1993) and became one of the most popular personalities in the history of San Diego. His name surfaced again a few years ago when he released a dozen nude photos of Dr. Laura Schlessinger that were then posted on the Internet. The pictures were taken when the two were dating. Bill was angry because Schlessinger had denied the relationship took place . . . and Schlessinger had held herself out to be this icon of morality and great virtue, when, in fact, she was a human being, just like the rest of us. Bill took umbrage at this (he also, it is said, took $50,000 for the copyright to the photos). The photographs and the story behind them are readily available today on the Internet. From some of his fellow broadcasters: "I remember first meeting Billo when we worked together at KFMB," said "Shotgun Tom" Kelly of Los Angeles' oldies station KRTH/FM ("K-Earth") 101.1. "He was great with words. I'd love it when he would ask the ladies, 'How do you and your husband perform under the percales, my dear?" "KFMB ran Padres baseball, and a lot of times the game would fall on Billo's time slot," Kelly said. "He would come into the station to do a 15-minute show if that's all that was left on his show after the game was over. The boss would say, 'Hey, Bill, there's only 15 minutes left on your show after the ballgame, you don't have to come in to work today' and Billo would say, 'Oh, no no, I'm coming in to do what's left of my show after the game is over; you got an eager beaver here, Coach.' " Alan Oda: "I was very sorry to hear of the passing of Bill Ballance. He was part of one of the powerhouse KGBS lineup (Ballance, Hudson & Landry, Dave Hull, Bob Morgan, and Jill Taggert) on my favorite radio station during the early 1970s. I had the privilege of meeting Mr. Ballance at the LARadio.com Day four years ago, hosted by the Museum of Radio and Television in Beverly Hills. Bill Ballance received more praise than anyone else on the panel from his fellow LARPs. Dick Whittington said that Ballance was "a master of the language...a daily dictionary" for his listeners. Dave Hull said that 'The Feminine Forum' was 'the biggest thing that ever hit this town.' Jimmy O'Neill simply said that Ballance was 'the fun-
niest man in the world.' One audience member after another had questions for Bill Ballance, including a query about whether or not his feud with B. Mitchell Reed was for real. Not only did he say it was for real, Ballance recalled how he had once knocked down Mitchell. 'I caught him stealing mail out of my mailbox. So I said 'Mitch,' and then 'splat,' right there in the corridor [pause]. God, those were happy days!' The audience was in stitches. Ballance, at 80+ years still had his razor sharp wit and timing which his listeners remembered. Ed Schwartz, WGN-Chicago alumnus: "What sad news Don. He had the best vocabulary in radio. I was a true fan. He made a couple of book tours to Chicago and sat with me for several hours. I was in awe. I remember a trip to L.A. in the early 70s and every radio I heard was tuned to KGBS starting with the car I rented at LAX. Many of the 'zoo boys' of today's radio couldn't have carried Bill Ballance's coffee cup let alone his intimate personal style of talking to his audience. He was one of a kind." Ballance retired in 1994 and moved to University City where he lived until his recent death. He had undergone quadruple bypass surgery within the past several years and had a stroke. Jimmy Ballance: Dad was not well-served by going into quadruple bypass surgery. The resultant stroke in June of 2002, really messed him up. His health and quality of life dropped steadily until his final act. He tried so hard, but he couldn't climb out of the hole. He returns to his birthplace, Peoria, Illinois, to be buried, on
October 9th. Born Oct. 27, 1918, in Peoria, his father owned a brewery and numerous saloons. In 1927, Mr. Ballance learned Peoria was dedicating its first radio station. Though just a child, he barged into the station uninvited and recited on air the World War I poem "In Flanders Fields" by John McCrae. Again, Jimmy Ballance: To grow up as sons of a celebrity was for me and my brother Kurt, "cool." It was an extra identity. We were deferred to. Also, we inherited his offbeat and skewed point of view...in observing the sweep of life's From Bill Ballance: "You'd better flaunt what Mother Nature gave you, before Father Time snatches it away!" Alas, Father Times has, indeed, snatched our friend, Bill Ballance, away from us. It was great while it lasted. Goodbye, Billo. And Thanks. Ya done good!

Page 4 - September 6, 2012 Illegal Alien Arrested for Indecent Exposure On Tuesday, August 28, at approximately 7:20 am, the Escondido Police Department received a call regarding a male subject sitting in a truck fondling himself in the 1200 Block of North Broadway. Witnesses state that subject was watching children walking to school. An adult witness contacted the police department and officers located the subject in his vehicle at the intersection of El Norte Parkway and Escondido Boulevard. The subject was detained by officers and was ultimately identified by the adult witness who had contacted the police. The subject, who was later identified as Antonio Montoya-Senteno, was transported to the Escondido Police Department. Montoya-Senteno was interviewed by ICE officers as a part of Operation Joint Effort while in EPD custody. ICE determined MontoyaSenteno had been voluntarily returned to Mexico on three prior occasions. At this time,
Local News he had no legal right to be in the United States. Upon the completion of the investigation, MontoyaSenteno was booked into the Vista Detention Facility for indecent exposure and an ICE hold. As of Wednesday, August 29th, 2012, MontoyaSenteno has been released from the Vista Detention Facility and is now in Federal custody pending immigration charges. The partnership between the Escondido Police Department and ICE had a significant impact on the arrest of this subject. The state charges MontoyaSenteno is facing are not bookable and he may not have identified as a criminal alien had it not been for the ICE officers who assisted at the Escondido Police Department. This case represents another example of how Operation Joint Effort has assisted local law enforcement with the removal of criminal aliens from our community. Fatal Oceanside Shooting Police have arrested one sushusbands as well as animals). Sally Costello, the beautiful CEO of the Escondido Humane Society was almost giddy with excitement when she announced they had broken their all time record and had found homes for 367 animals, all of which were adopted during their Furry Friendzy Adopt-a-Thon which began on Aug. 1! Adoption fees for all animals have been reduced to just $25 in September to make it easier to add a furry friend to your family.
Man About Town We were delighted to hear of the great success the Escondido Humane Society has had on their drive to find ‘forever homes’ for a record number of animals. They find homes for puppies, adult dogs, kittens, cats, bunny rabbits, and, possibly, an occasional mangy husband who has behavioral issues. (They have a great training program. Probably would work with
One of the hardest parts of our job, both Evelyn Madison and I, is not rushing right down to any of the three animal rescue organizations we publicize weekly. (See page 10 for this week’s roster of adorable pets that are anxiously awaiting new homes, and you’ll understand how difficult it is. They are gorgeous! And those eyes!) We deal each week with another beautiful gal, Katie Woolsey, who is kind enough to send us photos and background info on the various available animals. These
pect in the fatal shooting of one man and injury to his girlfriend. It happened shortly after midnight, Thursday evening, August 30th, in Oceanside’s Mesa Margarita neighborhood. Robert Robbins, 47, lived across the street from the suspect, 20-year-old Diego Martinez. Martinez is being held on suspicion of murder and attempted murder. Jailhouse records indicate he was to have been arraigned this past Tuesday. Martinez had allegedly returned to his home in the 4700 block of Calle Solumar but emerged from his home around 9:30 a.m. Thursday following orders of Oceanside police, who reached Martinez via bullhorn. Oceanside police said officers responded to a 12:18 a.m. report of a woman screaming at the corner of Calle Solimar and Calle Mariposa. There, they found a man lying dead in the driveway of a nearby home, where he'd knocked on a door seeking help.
Nearby, they found his wounded girlfriend, 49, inside of a truck parked on the wrong side of the street. She was hospitalized, and was cooperating with the police investigation. Reports are that the woman was shot in the face, chest and arm. Robbins' adult children identified him as the man who was killed. The Mesa Margarita has long been plagued with gang violence and shootings. Tipsters or witnesses with information regarding the double shooting on Thursday can call Oceanside police at 760-435-4900 or San Diego Crime Stoppers at 888-580TIPS (8477).

folks do a magnificent job and, surely, you must realize that a $25 adoption fee doesn’t come close to covering the cost of food, veterinary costs, and other supplies . . . so, next time you have some spare cash, consider cutting a check for a generous amount to an organization that has earned and deserves your support. Hugs to all the folks (and animals) at the Escondido Humane Society (or, indeed, any animal rescure organization).

that sounded like they might be interesting . . . they turned out to be blow-outs, which is always boring to me. In the evening, after putzing around trying to find the channel that carried the San Diego Aztecs game (on Cox cable it was channel 314), and watching bits and pieces over the next hour or so (couldn’t stand to watch the game continuously, the Aztecs just played sloppy ball), I finally (gasp!) shut the tv off and started organizing my desk and doing some writing. ••••• One question: should San Diego adopt the sports slogan of “Wait till Next Year!” (?)
Too Much Football? I’ve waited all summer for football season to roll around. Sat myself down in a comfortable chair and enjoyed watching the Nebraska Cornhuskers play their first game of the season (they won). (I follow the Huskers and the Chargers. I grew up in Nebraska . . . and kinda, sorta like the Chargers. Sometimes.) After that, I got bored rather quickly. Game after game after game on channel after channel after channel. And of those games
I no likee watch losing sports teams. San Diego seems content to back losing teams, not demanding winners. I could never figure that out. The jury is still out on the Chargers (who played just awful against San Francisco); with new owners, maybe, just maybe, the Padres will adopt a new, winning ‘Man About Town’ Cont. on Page 10

The Paper Endorsements For Escondido Union School District Board of Education Seats
Paulette Donnellon, District 3 We have known Paulette since she was a shy young lady of about 18 or 19. We have watched her grow since then and become a successful businesswoman, an avid supporter of education, and an active one. She currently serves as President of the Escondido Education Foundation. She is a dedicated hard worker and has spent the last 20 years in the educational technology field. She hopes to bring more and more educational technology to the schools, develop digital textbooks, and works with professionals in the field of education and writing to make learning fun. If learning is fun, it’s hard to keep students away from their les-
sons and classes. She recently introduced such a class at Arizona State University and invited a good friend, Dan Gookin, to come and speak to the classes. Gookin is the author of multiple, “for Dummies” books, including “DOS for Dummies,” “PC’s for Dummies,” as well as 130 other books. Gookin uses a combination of humor and factual information to make reading and learning easy . . . and that’s just one of the many goals Paulette Donnellon has. This is also an example of how Paulette Donnellon thinks creatively to bring “fun” things to the learning arena. In our judgment, she will bring this same creative thinkings, this same hard work ethic, and this same drive and determination to her position as Board Member of District 3, Escondido Union School District. This November, we believe Paulette Donnellon has earned, and deserves, your vote.
Joe Balogna, District 1 - has lived in the District 1 for 15 years at the same address, for 30 years in the same area that is now District 1. All three of his children graduated from Escondido High School. At age 56, he is running for a seat on the Board because he feels education is the foundation for shaping the future leaders of our community. He feels this can best be accomplished by taking the neccessary steps to correct mistakes made in the past and begin a journey along a path to fnancial stability. He has experience in balancing budgets, at home, and for public service organizations. He says, and believes, ‘Joe Bologna’ Cont. on Page 7
Commentary Have You No Shame, Sir? It is hard enough to get bad elected officials out of office. Best bet is to never let them get elected in the first place. Such is the case for perennial candidate, Jose Fragozo, a declared candidate for the District 1 Board Member Seat for the Escondido Union School District. Mr. Fragozo apparently has no sense of common decency or integrity in seeking elective office. He readily acknowledged to us that he “moved” to an Escondido address in order to be eligible ‘Commentary’ Cont. on Page 7

‘‘Commentary’ Cont. from Page 5 to run in this election. However, if one checks 28346 Crooked Oak Lane, Escondido, CA, 92026 (in the Hidden Meadows area) one will find that this is his primary residence. A search of that address in the tax records shows Jose M. Fragozo as the owner. He purports to live at 305 S. Maple St., a residence across from Central Elementary School in Escondido. Neighbors report he’s never there, there appears to be no furniture inside. That is just plain sneaky. It may not be criminal, but it shows the kind of mind behind such questionable and, in our judgment, immoral, activity. Is this the kind of mind you want discussing policy for your school system? I didn’t think so. Additionally, Mr. Fragozo thinks he is quite adept at gilding the lily on his campaign statements, all in a fur-

This event is part of the Society’s participation in the
ther attempt to deceive. He claims to have served as a former president of the EUSD Parent Advisory Committee, and is currently serving on the EUSD Independent Citizens Oversight Committee (of Prop T funds at EUHSD)." The above sentence is false on its face. The EUSD does not have an ICOC for oversight of EUHSD bonds (Prop T). The Escondido Union High School District's website shows that Mr. Fragozo is on the EUHSD ICOC. Also, Joan Gardner, a current Trustee of the EUSD, has assured me that the EUSD does not have a Parent Advisory Committee--hence no "former president." He also claims "Board members, school administrators, teachers, staff, and parents all know that Jose is a consistent and vigorous voice for educational progress and also for a demanding educational experience for our young people." This would appear to be an endorsement by the Board of
ASPCA $100K Challenge. Fees will be waived for adult dogs and cats to qualified adopters. The Society has all makes and models of adult pets, but the 2012 models with that “new kitten or puppy smell” also are in stock for a $25 fee – well below the sticker price. All pets come with a Standard Multi-Point Inspection, including spay/neuter, microchip, vaccinations, and vet exam. All potential adopters must meet the Humane Society adoption criteria and are encouraged to visit the shelter to check out the wide array of floor models – all makes and models of pets are in stock – or view the pets online at www.escondidohumanesociety.org. The Certified Pre-Owned Pet Free Adoption Event is from 10am to 5pm on Saturday and Sunday, September 1516, at EHS facility, 3450 E. Valley Parkway.

Mr. Fragozo. We are assured that neither the board nor the administrators, nor the faculty have endorsed Mr. Fragozo and the statement is a selfserving misstatement of fact. Mr. Fragozo has several errors in his candidate statement that should be corrected. He has made no attempt at corrective action. Councilwoman Olga Diaz, who supports voting by district area for City Council elections, said she tried to advise Fragozo “against moving and running to represent the voters of a district he did not live in prior to the candidate filing period.” “I have been a strong advocate for Jose in the past, but I believe he is violating the spirit of district elections and cannot support his current candidacy based on that,” Diaz said. The Paper would like to see honest candidates elected to the Board oof Education . . . to instill honesty, pride and integrity in our students. Mr. Fragozo appears to be woefully lacking in those attributes. We urge a vote for Joe Balogna for District 1 Trustee.

Remember 9/11! ‘Joe Bologna’ Cont. from Page 5 that people listen and respond to sound money principles. He believes we need to focus on continuing to bring each child to the highest level of their ability. “To be competitive in this world, it is of the utmost importance that we do all we can to make this possible through education.” “Also, the increased integration of modern technology into our schools has provided the type of essentials neccessary to help them compete. My desire is to see the childrens thrive for academic excellence and achieve it. There are many positive aspects about this district. The challenge itself is a positive aspect. We must not become complacent. Mr. Bologna is currently serving as Chair for the Community Services Commission, has served on the Board for the Escondido American Little League for seven years, and is a well known, enthusiastic volunteer in the community in a number of areas. We believe Joe Bologna deserves your vote.

The Doctor is In! n’t reach many of the areas in the mouth at greatest risk for dental disease. NEW FLASH! Changes in the basic philosophy of oral hygiene are now san marcos dental center occurring based on 760.734.4311 new scientific sanmarcosdentalcenter.com research, with new products and techniques being San Marcos Dental Center introduced. Here are just a few:
Dr. Gregory Hurt, DDS
Oral Hygiene – Tradition Versus Scientific Facts Despite being science-based professionals, dentists and hygienists teach oral hygiene based on traditions with no research base. Tooth brushing is one of those traditions. There are many studies comparing different types of tooth brushes (manual, power, soft or hard bristles, etc.) assuming that toothbrushing is the most important oral hygiene activity essential for oral health. Granted, tooth brushing removes more plaque (bacterial colonies) than not brushing BUT such an ingrained habit tends to ignore that toothbrushing does-
1. Interproximal First – Plaque first accumulates on the proximal (between teeth) surfaces of your teeth with your lower molars and premolars (bicuspids), followed by your upper molars. The lingual (tongue side) surfaces of your upper teeth accumulate very little plaque. Start by “dry brushing” first, then flossing or “tipping” between your teeth. 2. Dry Brush First – No water or toothpaste to start! Do this with your entire mouth until it feels clean, then add toothpaste for breath refreshment and fluoride treatment! 3.
Lower Right or Lower
Left… Difficult areas to clean – Almost all studies show that the most difficult area to clean is your lower right back teeth if you’re right handed, and your lower left back teeth if you’re left handed … so spend a little more time there. Most toothbrushing brochures suggest brushing your front teeth first, which is the area of your mouth “least” likely to accumulate plaque. You should start in the areas of greatest risk. Simply changing your toothbrushing pattern will increase your effectiveness. 4. Most Effective Plaque Removal – Xylitol is a natural sugar that bacteria can’t metabolize. It interferes with the acid production by the bacteria in mouth and reduces the plaque levels there. If consumed 3-5 times daily, xylitol reduces plaque accumulation by 50%! Toothbrushing depends on your dexterity, Xylitol works no matter what your toothbrushing
skill level is. Just chew gum, use toothpaste (Sply, Epic, Squigle, etc.) a mouthrinse, suck on candy, etc. as long as it has xylitol in it! Between it and a thorough brushing you will decrease your susceptibility to decay and periodontal disease significantly! 5. Remineralization – Studies now show that with a more scientifically based approach to Oral Hygiene, along with using toothpastes having xylitol and fluoride in them, it’s not only possible to prevent decay and disease, we can even remineralize those areas in our mouth that are damaged by bacteria accumulation (plaque). In Conclusion: When you change your approach to Oral Hygiene and base it on Scientific Facts instead of the old, traditional methods, you’ll be much more effective in preventing decay and gum disease … and have a much healthier body! We all know a healthier body means a better and often longer life!

Page 10 - September 6, 2012 ‘Local News’ Cont. from Page 4 San Marcos, with any crime after his wife of 15 years, Margaret “Jo” Purdy, 84, committed suicide five months ago. Mrs. Purdy had left a suicide note, in her own handwriting, on a small table beside her chair in the couple's San Marcos home. Alan Purdy, 88, said his wife had been suffering badly for years and had attempted suicided once before. He found her in the garage, the engine running, the garage door closed. He brought her in the house and revived her. Though he maintained throughout the investigation he did nothing to assist his wife . . . he only sat by her side, with his hand on her shoulder for comfort, the sheriff’s deputies handcuffed, interrogated, and jailed him. Under California law, helping his wife kill herself would have been illegal. Penal Code 401 states that "every person who deliberately aids, or advises, or encourages another to commit suicide, is guilty of a felony." A conviction could carry a punishment of up to three years in prison. Purdy said he thought the law was a barbaric one and should be repealed. The couple lived together in their southern San Marcos home for all 15 years of their marriage. Purdy, a Word War II pilot, retired as an engineer. Purdy said his wife had suffered three cracked vertebrae that never healed propery and, as a result, subjected her to consistent pain. She was also diagnosed with Sjogren's syndrome, a chronic autoimmune disease. Weeks before she died, Jo Purdy gathered her children for a final goodbye. She shared her plans with them. The family, fully aware of her plans, tried to talk her out of it, to no avail. On the day she had selected to die, she ate a concoction of crushed sleeping pills and
Peaches is an adorable apricot Terrier blend. She is about 2 years old and 11 pounds. She is quiet, well behaved and great company for anyone. She gets along with other pets and all ages of people. A bit shy at first but soon Peaches knows who loves her and she loves them right back. She does very well on her walks and of course snuggle time. Like all our pups Peaches is spayed and microchipped. Her vaccines and rabies are all up to date. She comes with a full 4 piece safety equipment set, food for her transition and any favorite toys or bedding. For more photographs please view her on our website as well as all the other pups in our rescue that need forever homes or a foster family.

Oceanside’s First Community Torah Dedicated On September 9th, the 3,300year old sacred scripture, inscribed on parchment made from the hide of kosher animals, is scheduled to arrive from Israel, where a trained scribe spent the past eight months meticulously writing 10,416 lines of text and 304,805 Hebrew letters with a quill pen on 100-foot long scrolls as has been done since the beginning of Jewish History. The scroll, which contains the Five Books of Moses, is a moral compass for people of Jewish faith, and was made in honor of the entire community for its physical and spiritual well being, said Rabbi Baruch Greenberg, director of the Chabad Jewish Center of Oceanside.
Squiggy is the Pet of the Week at your Rancho Coastal Humane Society in Encinitas. He's a 2 year old, 20 pound, neutered, male, Tibetan Spaniel mix. Like more than 80% of the pets adopted from Rancho Coastal Humane Society, Squiggy was transferred to RCHS through our FOCAS program. The care providers say that Squiggy is "a spirited little guy brimming with enthusiasm." And he's smart! He just needs a home where he can be active and wanted. Squiggy's adoption fee of $145 includes up to date vaccines, veterinary exam, neuter, and microchip. Meet Squiggy at Rancho Coastal Humane Society, 389 Requeza Street in Encinitas. Adoption hours are 11 to 5 Wednesday through Monday. For more information call 760-753-6413.

They put on their annual pancake breakfast last Saturday, an event at which they raise in the neighborhood of $20,000, all of which goes right back into the community to help support other community organizations and, in particular, kids. They do it right, those RB folks. They had a Dixieland Band to entertain, they had a magician who kept the kids and adults enthralled with slight of hand, they had Kiwanis Key Clubbers from RB High who circulated with pitchers of hot coffee and cold milk and orange juice, they had classic pancakes as well as blueberry pancakes, they had lots of Kiwanians circulating, tending to your every need. They also had a silent auction with at least 83 gift baskets available . . . they had opportunity drawings,
Isaiah is a 7-year-old neutered male Chihuahua mix, ID 65860. Isaiah is a big dog in a little package: confident, friendly and very cute! Isaiah walks nicely on a leash and is already learning sit, "watch me" and "leave it." Isaiah gets along well with other dogs and would probably do better living with dogs closer to his size. He plays well with his friends and humans, too. Isaiah is available for adoption at the Escondido Humane Society, 3450 E. Valley Parkway. His $25 adoption fee in August includes neuter, microchip, up-to-date vaccinations and vet exam. For more information, call (760) 888-2247 or log on to www.escondidohumanesociety.org. The Escondido Humane Society Adoption Center is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. seven days a week.
and the venue, Rancho Bernardo High School, is a beautiful place to hold such an event. There were lots of smiles and no one went away hungry. All you could eat and drink plus you had a lot of interesting and new found friends to chat with. The Rancho Bernardo Kiwanis Club is a great organization. Those of you who live in the RB area should give them a call and join! If even remotely interested, call John Gomez, Membership Chair, at 619.995.8207. He’ll give you all the skinny. ••••• Speaking of Kiwanis, I recall a day when one of our scheduled speakers didn’t show up.

TOWN HALL MEETING
Free Emergency Response Training in San Marcos
Town Hall meetings are a good way to give residents an opportunity to express their opinions and discuss their concerns in a less formal environment than regular council meetings. In fulfillment of one of my campaign promises, I have held three Town Hall meetings since 2011. My next town hall meeting will be held on Wednesday, September 19 at 4:30 p.m. in the Council Chambers at City Hall, 201 N. Broadway. The meeting format will be an open question and
answer period on any topic relating to local government. This is your opportunity to share your views on the issues facing our City Council and to discuss any subject that matters to you or your business. We will follow up with the appropriate City department to resolve any issues. The meeting will also be videotaped and rebroadcast the following Sunday and Monday evening at 6:00 p.m. on Cox. Ch.19 and AT&T U-Verse Ch. 99. I encourage you to attend and participate in the discussion, or even just say hello and introduce yourself. Working together we can help Escondido become a better city.
Rancho Bernardo • Mayor Jerry Sanders As we say goodbye to summer and welcome in the fall, a lot of us find ourselves making room in our houses for those chilly evenings indoors. In many cases, this means throwing away some of the clutter, and the City of San Diego is there to help you out. We continue to have a great response to our Household Hazardous Waste program, which helps residents properly dispose of items like automobile oil, oil filters, fluorescent light bulbs and batteries. The program has been expanded and will con-
tinue into the fall, starting with an oil-specific event on Sept. 29 in Balboa Park. These will continue through November, December and January. I encourage all our residents to check out the Environmental Protection section of our Environmental Services Department’s website at sandiego.gov/environmentalservices and look for more dates. Here, you can also learn which of your household materials are considered hazardous, and need special care when being disposed of. Keeping San Diego beautiful is a job for everyone.
Vista • Mayor Judy Ritter Each year, several streets are either resurfaced or receive a slurry seal as part of the city’s ongoing commitment to maintaining city roads. The City is focusing its limited fuel tax dollars on roads that carry the most traffic and are prone to deteriorating quickly if not taken care of. While the City does not have enough funds to cover all the roads that are wearing out, motorists should notice a difference in the condition of the roads as they drive through the city. The City uses two treatment types to either improve or maintain the
road infrastructure: Preventive maintenance such as slurry seals are applied to improve the existing surface and extend the pavement life at a relatively low cost. Overlays and pavement reconstruction are required to replace all or portions of the deteriorated surface at a relatively higher cost. From time to time there may be temporary traffic delays or detours due to the road improvement projects. The safety of the general public and the construction crews is the City’s top priority and the public’s cooperation is greatly appreciated. The complete list of road improvement projects is available at cityofvista.com under “Road Construction.”

The City of San Marcos, in partnership with Palomar College, will be sponsoring a tuition free, 10-part Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training series on consecutive Saturdays from 8:30 to 11 am beginning Sept. 8 and running through Nov. 10.
Successful CERT graduates will receive a certificate of completion in the non-credit Palomar College course and an invitation to join the San Marcos CERT Team. Team members are issued equipment kits, attend periodic Saturday morning training refresher sessions and participate in rescue drills with the San Marcos Fire Department.
With recent disaster events across the nation serving as reminder of the importance of emergency preparedness, CERT training includes courses in disaster preparedness, fire safety, terrorism, basic disaster response skills and disaster medical opera-
Together, the San Marcos CERT Team and an educated community will be a vital piece to the survival and recovery of our region in the event of a disaster. To register for CERT training, please call (760) 744-1050 ext. 3405.
Oceanside • Mayor Jim Wood Buena Vista Lagoon Restoration Project Great improvements are coming our way! At the request of the cities of Oceanside and Carlsbad, SANDAG recently agreed to assume the lead in advancing the environmental document for the restoration of Buena Vista Lagoon, which is located along the borders of Oceanside, Carlsbad and the I-5. This project is vital to enhancing and restoring approximately 200 acres of wetland habitat, and SANDAG estimates that it will cost approximately $1 million to complete the environmental document for the restoration effort. Both Oceanside and Carlsbad will
be contributing $100,000 each, with the remaining funds coming from the environmental work that is already underway for the North Coast Corridor 1-5 Express Lanes Project. Additionally, SANDAG will soon begin work on designing a new double track rail bridge, replacing the old one that currently spans the lagoon. Concurrently, Caltrans is working to identify alternatives for improving the nearby 1-5/Hwy. 78 interchange to address issues of regional connectivity and congestion. The whole idea is getting everyone on the same page to enhance our area, while being sensitive to the needs of this delicate and beautiful environment that surrounds us each day.

“Mainstreamers” represent over 80% of PC users. They don’t do high-end tasks like video/audio transcription, solids modeling and design or high-end competitive gaming. “Mainstreamers” activities include WWW surfing, streaming video, music DVDs, banking, bill paying, investments, games and applications like Quick Books, Family Tree Maker and office suites. Any new PC or one manufactured in the past seven or eight years is up to these applications. That’s why we accept PCs up to eight years old as trade-ins.

Fire Fee Applies to Thousands in San Diego County Unfortunately, many San Diego County homeowners who live within the “State Fire Responsibility Area” will soon receive a minimum bill of $150. This bill is part of a new "fee structure" passed by the Governor and majority party. This “fee” will be imposed on more than 100,000 San Diego County residents. Our county has the largest amount of residents who are impacted -- the next highest county is San Bernardino with 65,000 impacted residents. This so-called “fire fee” on rural homeowners is intended to subsidize fire services, like clearing brush.

The video can be “integrated” but there must be a 16X PCI-X video slot on the motherboard to ensure that a video card can be added if the “on-board” video fails or the user needs a video upgrade. The basic system described above will meet “mainstreamers” requirements for now and the immediate future. When buying a “retail package PC” (Dell, HP/Compaq, Gateway etc) there a few things to watch for. “All in one PCs” (integrated monitor and PC) and teenyweeny PCs are cute but most of their components are proprietary, not industry standard. That means when something goes blooey, you’re in for serious downtime and expensive repair. Buyers of “package PCs” should be aware that manufacturers cut corners by using marginally capable power supplies, omitting PCI-X video connectors and filling the memory slots. A PC sold with 4GB of RAM should have a single 4GB memory module and at least one open RAM slot. “Packagers” may fill both memory slots by using 2GB modules forcing users to throw out the factory
Association firmly believes that this fee is a "tax" and was passed illegally, as it circumvented the Proposition 26 stipulation that taxes can only be passed by a two-thirds vote of the Legislature or by voter consent at the ballot box. If Sacramento would concentrate on working with business to improve job opportunities, our state’s coffers would grow and we wouldn’t have to create new revenues through illegal taxes.

RAM and purchase all new RAM when upgrading to 8GB. During the 80s and 90s PCs typically were replaced every two or three years. Now days you can expect your PC to resist obsolescence for seven or eight years. Today quality and flexibility are important factors. You want your PC to last and you want to be able to help it last by being able to upgrade its components. “Moores Law” (Gordon Moore, Intel founder) says that computer capabilities double every two years. This has held true for the past fifty years. To a great extent, the speed of your PC is controlled by the CPU (processor). CPU speed is expressed in “benchmarks.” Low end PCs like AMD dual core and Intel i3 and i5 CPUs benchmark in the 2000-3000 range. Mid-range
Pension Reform Falls Short Throughout my tenure in the State Assembly, I have supported real reforms to our local and state pension systems and authored and coauthored legislation that would eliminate pension abuse and reduce the nearly $500 billion unfunded liability burdening California. However, the majority party has failed to act on any significant reform out of fear of angering their labor union allies. In fact, they sat idle for nine months ignoring a pension proposal released in November 2011 by Governor Brown. His plan was later introduced word for word by my Republican colleagues and I, but our proposal was disregarded.
AMD four and six core CPUs and Intel i5 and i7 will bench mark in the 4000-6000 range. High-end AMD eight core and Intel i7 CPUs score benchmarks in the 8000 to 10,000 range. While power users are able to take advantage of high-performance CPUs. Most mainstreamers would not see much difference in speed between low-end and high-end. The benefit of choosing a higher performance CPU lies not in the present but in the future. According to Moore’s Law, a PC with a CPU benchmarks of 8000 will stay technologically current four years longer than one with a CPU benchmarking at 2000. It’s something to consider. To compare CPU benchmarks and prices go to passmarkbenchmarks.com.
In the final hours of the legislative session, Democrats put forth a plan in the form of Assembly Bill 340 which falls short of the real reforms needed to fix a broken system. The State Assembly had been in session for 244 days and had 633 calendar days to act. Instead, the majority party cut and pasted a backroom proposal at the last minute with details not available to the public or even members of the Legislature until an hour before a late night hearing. I believe California taxpayers deserve better and chose to vote “NO” on Assembly Bill 340. If the state is going to avoid the impending financial disaster of unfunded pensions, it needs real reform and not a last ditch effort that only scratches the surface of a monumental fiscal problem.

This Friday Night Fun-Fest has been truly a wonderful way to meet new people as well as get back in touch with old friends and we have been given a trip down memory lane with all of the fantastic classic cars on display. September 28th will be the last night for 2012 Cruisin’ Grand and, on that night, I plan on stopping by Vinz for an excellent glass of wine and their amazing Shrimp Cocktail. I’m looking forward to topping the evening off with some yummy Avocado Ice Cream at The California Avocado Grill and hearing live music over at R O’Sullivans. I hope to see you out there!
Folks, if you are looking for an outstanding speaker, give Richard Jungas a call at 760.737.2890.
Richard and his beautiful wife, Marcia, have become close personal friends. Richard is a fellow Kiwanian as well. Plus . . . if we’re ever in a bind for a great speaker, we know who to call! ••••• Back on the radio: A new habit has developed . . . chatting with ol’ Doug Best on his Saturday morning radio show.
While you would not normally think of a funeral director as an outstanding speaker . . . you’d be wrong. At least in Richard’s case.
Doug calls me around 8:30am ever Saturday and we chat about the world . . . but mostly the local version of the world.
He gives a brief overview of the profession . . . then takes questions and answers.
Doug, as you probably know, plays hits from the Big Band era, as well as some mighty fine Dixieland . . . every Saturday from 7am to 11am, on KKSM, AM 1320, Palomar College Radio.
but were afraid to ask. We actually ran out of time. We had more questions so, naturally, we asked Richard back as a guest speaker on two subsequent occasions.
He deals with the various elements of the subject in a simple, matter-of-fact way that is illuminatng, educational, and fascinating. I can almost guaranteed that your halfhour program (the normal amount alloted to guest speakers) will be gone before you know it . . . and there will still be questions. That’s okay. Just invite him back, just as we did.
Doug and I have been pals and have worked together for 42 years . . . ever since he and I worked together back at the old KOWN Radio station, which I managed from 1970 to 1977. Join Doug this Saturday. I’ll wave at you!

The Sikhs Editor - ThePaper I would like to thank you for the article about the Sikhs by Lyle E. Davis. He did a great job putting all together. Thanks for spreading the word. Please let me know if I can be of any help. Wish you well. May God bless all. Respectfully, Gopal Singh San Diego County Afghanistan: Cut Losses Mr. Davis: A little background - I'm a 'ninetygenarian,' a WWII vet and an old, retired grouch. I helped "solve the problems of the world" around the table at a firehouse in Oakland between fighting brush fires and taking my turn at cooking gourmet meals for twenty some odd years, Generally I enjoy THE PAPER, and the CHUCKLES, always and, often your feature stories if
The "Cut Losses" piece got under my skin but the writers have a point, That is, if we're going to keep our fighters under the command of inexperienced politicians who identify themselves with a very loud minority of hippies, peaceniks and "fearful negotiators" we might as well quit and let the terrorists have their way. Our country has to be respected. In order for that to happen there needs to be a certain amount of fear among our potential enemies. Trouble is, they know they can get away with pulling off a certain amount of mischief without fear of effective retaliation from the current folks in charge in this country. President Truman had been in the trenches in the first world war. He saw the problem and ordered the deployment of our nuclear weapons on those who attacked us and our friends. It caused those attackers to leave the culture of conquering the world and become modern nations. Some years later, after our government let itself fall under the influence of a loud minority, it frustrated and destroyed the lives of some of our excellent fighting men and, finally ordered them to give up. It left Indochina in the unfettered hands of brutal tyrants and their primitive adherants with deadly weapons, who killed millions of people who did not agree with them. It seems to me that our military is being allowed to play the game of a people who's way of life for centuries has been a state of low grade warfare with each other. It is their "turf" and they can keep it up indefinately and let our politicians keep on wasting lives and money. If we are serious, and we need to be, we should use our modern technology and methods to change the worst parts of that culture quickly to something more in tune with a twenty first century world and keep in touch for our own safety. In the way the world turns now, isolationism is a folly. If we hope to keep our way of life we need to keep in touch with all parts of the world because there will always be some disgruntled person or group who will try to strike at us only because we are at the top. ‘Letters to the Editor’ Cont. on Page 14
