No matter what faith we follow, or, indeed, if we have no faith at all to follow, this story is bound to touch the hearts of you, your family and friends. It is a story of dedication, sacrifice, and service far above self. It is the story of Emil Kapaun. The Paper - 760.747.7119

You may not have heard of him till recently. He’s been dead for 62 years.
Why should we care about a man who has been gone for 62 years? Glad you asked.
Let me tell you a bit about Emil Kapaun.
Emil Joseph Kapaun began as a simple farm boy, born on April 20, 1916, and grew up

His parents were Enos and Elizabeth Kapaun, Czech immigrants. He attended and graduated from Pilsen High School in
May 1930, later attending seminary in Missouri, and, still later, being ordained a priest in Wichita, Kansas. Honoring his home town he returned to Pilsen where he celebrated his first Mass at St.

Kapaun, with his Bishop’s permission, joined the army in July 1944.
Kapaun served as military chaplain in Georgia, then he was sent to India where he served in the Burma Theater; he was promoted to captain in January 1946 and returned to the states in May 1946, where he became a civilian. In September 1948, he rejoined the Army and resumed his chaplaincy at Fort Bliss, El Paso, Texas. Kapaun left his parents and Pilsen for the last time in December 1949, for Yokohama, Japan. In January 1950, he was stationed near Mt. Fuji, Japan as a military chaplain until alerted into combat in July 1950. In that month, Kapaun was ordered to Korea from Japan, a month after North Korea invaded South Korea. The 8th Cavalry Regiment made an amphibious landing

A guy is driving around the back streets of Escondido and he sees a sign in front of a broken down shanty-style house: 'Talking Dog For Sale' He rings the bell and the owner appears and tells him the dog is in the backyard.
The guy goes into the backyard and sees a nice looking Labrador retriever sitting there. 'You talk?' he asks.
'Yep,' the Lab replies.
After the guy recovers from the shock of hearing a dog talk, he says 'So, what's your
at Pohang on 30 June 1950 and fought its way toward Yongdong to relieve the beleaguered 21st Regiment, 24th Division. From there, he was constantly on the move northward. His main complaint was lack of sleep for several weeks at a time. He constantly ministered to the dead and dying while performing baptisms, hearing first Confessions, offering Holy Communion and celebrating Mass from an improvised altar set up on the front end of an army jeep. He constantly would lose his Mass kit, jeep and trailer to enemy fire. He told how he was thoroughly convinced that the prayers of many others were what had saved him so many times. When enemy fire rendered his jeep inoperable, he took to riding a bicycle along the front lines. One of his fellow prisoners, Ray M. Dowe, Jr., wrote in the Saturday Evening Post in 1954 about the chaplain’s rides: “Helmet jammed down over his ears, pockets stuffed with apples and peaches he had scrounged from Korean orchards, he’d ride this bone-
The Lab looks up and says, 'Well, I discovered that I could talk when I was pretty young. I wanted to help the government, so ... I told the CIA. In no time at all they had me jetting from country to country, sitting in rooms with spies and world leaders, because no one figured a dog would be eavesdropping. I was one of their most valuable spies for eight years running ...
But the jetting around really tired me out, and I knew I wasn't getting any younger so I decided to settle down. I signed up for a job at the airport to do some undercover security, wandering near suspicious characters and listening in. I uncovered some incredible dealings and was awarded a batch of medals.'
'I got married, had a mess of puppies, and now I'm just retired, here in Escondido.' The guy is amazed. He goes back in and asks the owner what he wants for the dog. 'Ten dollars,' the guy says.
'Ten dollars? This dog is amaz-

Reports received noted that Kapaun's feet had become badly frozen, but that he continued to administer to the sick and wounded. He continuously went out under heavy mortar and shelling to rescue wounded and dying soldiers at personal risk of being captured or killed. Kapaun was awarded the Bronze Star in Korea for heroism in August 1950—the chaplain ran through enemy fire, dragging soldiers to safety—months before his detention.
The more famous landing at Inchon somewhat obscures the 1st Cavalry’s remarkable landing at Pohang. Between June and late October, 1st Cavalry had entered Pyongyang. The North Koreans had been badly beaten down and the American

The last question was, 'Name seven advantages of Mother's Milk. The question was worth 70 points or none at all. One student, in particular, was hard put to think of seven advantages. However, he wrote:
1) It is perfect formula for the child. 2) It provides immunity against several diseases. 3) It is always the right temperature. 4) It is inexpensive. 5) It bonds the child to mother, and vice versa. 6) It is always available as needed. And then the student was stuck. Finally, in desperation, just before the bell rang indicating the end of the test, he
commanders were optimistic. Nobody had really expected the Chinese to intervene. The 8th Cavalry Regiment was ordered to relieve the ROK (Republic of Korea) at Unsan, only to find themselves entering a kill zone. On 1 Nov as many as 20,000 Chinese Communists attacked the 8th Cavalry Regiment. 1st and 2nd Battalions fell back into Unsan. Fr. Kapaun’s 3rd battalion was mauled. They formed up around three tanks and fought through the night. By daylight, the 3rd Battalion had been annihilated, its men overwhelmed in human charges.
Father Kapaun walked through intense fire to give spiritual comfort and medical aid to the troops he ministered. After the unit was surrounded by the enemy, those able to were ordered to evacuate, but Kapaun decided to stay

behind with the wounded and continued to tend to his injured comrades. In the chaos, dodging bullets and explosions, Father Kapaun raced between foxholes, out past the front lines and into no-man's land, dragging the wounded to safety.
As the combat continued for his outgunned unit, he continued to make the rounds. As enemy forces approached the American position, Kapaun noticed an injured Chinese officer among the wounded and convinced him to negotiate the safe surrender of the American forces. Kapaun was captured near Unsan, North Korea, in November 1950.
The chaplain pushed away the weapon of a Chinese soldier standing over an American with a broken ankle. Then as the Chinese soldier watched, stunned, Father Kapaun carried that wounded American away. He and other prisoners of war were then taken on the Tiger Death March, 87 miles (140 km) to a North Korean prison camp, Pyoktong, with Kapaun carrying the soldier, Herbert Miller, for four of those miles before other POW’s took over. Kapaun was able to influence some prisoners, who had ignored orders from officers, to carry the wounded.
That wounded soldier, Herbert Miller, now in his 80’s, who served with Kapaun, describes what happened after he was wounded at Unsan:
"They threw a grenade, and that's when I got hit. I couldn't get out of the way. Broke my ankle and I laid there in the ditch till daylight. And I [saw] Koreans and Chinese coming in that ditch, so I just laid down, played dead and they went on by me. ... That afternoon, I [saw] them coming again and I said, 'Well, this is all it.' So I was laying there and this Korean come down through ... and that Korean stood over me with a gun ready to shoot. And he stood there, he hesitated — why I don't know — but pretty quick Father
Kapaun came from across the road. I didn't know what his name was ... I did know he was a chaplain. He bent, pushed that guy aside, bent down, picked me up and carried me."
At the camp, he dug latrines, mediated disputes, gave away his own food, and raised morale among the prisoners. He was noted among his fellow POWs as one who would steal coffee and tea (and a pot to heat them in) from the Communist guards. He also led prisoners in acts of defiance and smuggled dysentery drugs to the doctor, Sidney Esensten. At Pyoktong, prisoners lived on less than 500 grams of millet a day and might die at three or four a night in a room.
Kapaun turned old t-shirts into bandages, and snuck out to wash old bandages and old garments for the suffering. He was called “The Good Thief,” delivering stolen food retrieved on trips inside guards’ areas. He recited American menus for starving prisoners, and led officers in “America, the Beautiful” and the national anthem (“God Save the Queen” for Brits in the camp). He fixed leaking water pouches with burned down soles of rubber boots; held a sunrise Easter Mass; and became a huge pain in the ass for Chinese guards trying to indoctrinate the prisoners, calling the Communists liars and mocking them: “Where is your God now?” guards demanded. “Right here,” he replied.
(Walt) Mayo one day heard a Chinese officer lecture Kapaun. “Don’t ask God for your daily bread,” the officer said. “Ask Mao Zedong. He’s the one who provides your daily bread.”
“If this is an example of God’s daily bread,” Kapaun said, “then God must be a terrible baker.”
“He joked with them, and said prayers for them, and held them in his arms like children as delirium came upon them,” Dowe wrote in 1954. “But the main thing he did for them was to put into their hearts the will to live. For when you are
wounded and sick and starving, it’s easy to give up and quietly die.”
“People had lost a great deal of their civility,” Robert Wood told the Washington Post of the camp. “We were stacking the bodies outside where they were frozen like cordwood and here is this one man — in all of this chaos — who has kept . . . principles.” His Chinese captors ridiculed him for his Catholic faith, but at night, he led his fellow prisoners in prayer. Kapaun even led an Easter service where he used a small crucifix he made from small sticks. While guards watched, the soldiers sang the Lord's Prayer and America the Beautiful.
They sang so loud that other prisoners across the camp not only heard them, they joined in, too — filling that valley with song and with prayer. Among the dying, Capt. Emil Kapaun traded his watch for a blanket at a North Korean prison camp—and cut the blanket up and made it into socks for fellow prisoners. Kapaun developed a blood clot in his leg, dysentery, and pneumonia.
Kapaun, weakened as months passed on, managed to lead Easter sunrise service on Sunday, March 25, 1951. He was so weak that the prison guards took him to the hospital.
"Then, as he was taken away, he did something remarkable — he blessed the guards," "'Forgive them,' he said, 'for they know not what they do.'" “Tell them back home that I died a happy death,” he told fellow soldiers.
Father Kapaun died of pneumonia on May 23, 1951, nearly six months after his capture. He was buried in a mass grave near the Yalu River. His remains haven't been recovered. Somewhere in Korea, along the banks of the Yalu River, the mortal remains of Captain Emil Kapaun lie in an unmarked grave under a field of flowers alongside the bodies of the prisoners of war to whom he ministered. A

garden was planted over the mass grave by the Chinese and Koreans, to obscure it. His life was a warm and holy light in a cold and evil darkness and even his captors greatly feared him.
He was most remembered for his great humility, bravery, his constancy, his love and kindness and solicitude for his fellow prisoners. He was their hero... their admired and beloved "padre." Many accounts have been given of the many creature comforts he provided his comrades of the 8th Cavalry Regiment during imprisonment. They were both spiritual and physical. He provided endless hours of prayer and what nourishment he could find to all he could to keep them from starving to death.
Fellow captives said the chaplain's "most courageous acts followed in a prisoner of war camp, where Kapaun died in May 1951. They said he saved hundreds of soldiers' lives using faith and the skills honed on his family's farm near Pilsen. In the prison camp, he shaped roofing tin into cooking pots so prisoners could boil water, which prevented dysentery. He picked lice off sick prisoners. He stole food from his captors and shared it with his starving comrades. Most of all, Kapaun rallied all of them, as they starved during subzero temperatures, to stay alive." What Fr. Kapaun willed to us cannot be contained in memorials, however costly or beautiful. It is a treasure for the human soul – the spirit of one who loved and served God and man – even unto death.
Kapaun’s is a story of self-sacrifice so noble that surviving vets still speak of him with awe — and the Vatican is considering making him a saint.
At the moment of their liberation, Father Kapaun’s fellow POWs carried a hand-carved wooden crucifix in his honor. They also began a campaign for this Medal of Honor, but his story was forgotten until some in Congress recently ‘Thy Will Be Done . . .’ Cont. on Page 6
Page 4 - April 18, 2013 Escondido Man Arrested, Battles with Police
On Saturday, April 13th, at about 8:35 AM, Escondido Police Communications Center received a report of a man in a truck who was parked in a drive-thru of a fast food restaurant in the 200 block of W. Mission Ave. The man appeared to be asleep and he was blocking the driveway of the drivethru.
Officers arrived to the call about three minutes later to find the man in the truck and blocking the drive-thru. The man, later identified as Carlos Santiago (22 years-old, resident of Escondido), appeared to be asleep and in the driver’s seat. The engine of the truck was running.
Officers tried to get the man to wake up and initially he did not. Officers found the doors of the truck locked and were able to get a door open. When they did, Santiago awoke. Santiago was acting like he had been under the influence
of alcohol. Officers had him exit the truck and they began to check further as to why he was unresponsive and blocking the drive-thru. They asked Santiago who he was and Santiago identified himself as a different person. He did not have any identification on him. Santiago was cooperative at that time.
Officers conducted a field sobriety test on Santiago and determined he was under the influence of alcohol. They told him he was under arrest. He made it look like he was going to cooperate but then quickly stepped away and broke free from the officers. They ordered him to comply, yet Santiago did not. Santiago ran from the officers and they chased after him. They caught up to him a short distance away and had to tackle him to the ground. At this point, one sergeant and two officers were with Santiago. Once on the ground, officers told Santiago to stop resisting. Santiago did not and struggled to prevent the officers that sentence because (a) it had a natural rhyme, and (b) it allowed me to use the word "eschew" twice in one paragraph. This, then, establishes that I ain't no dummy. I know words like "eschew."

Now, wouldn't you know it, my two pups are also here . . . looking at me with those pleading eyes. (Yes, I gave them each a big hunk of meat). The rest is for me.
from handcuffing him. During the process, he attempted to strike the officers with his arms and elbows as they gained control of him. Santiago was eventually handcuffed; however, he continued to fight and try to get up even after he was handcuffed. Additional officers arrived and were able to get full control of Santiago.
The sergeant and two officers who were initially involved in arresting Santiago sustained minor cuts and scrapes to their arms during the arrest. Santiago sustained minor injuries as well. The officers did not require medical attention. Santiago was taken to a hospital and cleared for minor cuts and scrapes. Santiago will be booked at Vista Jail on charges of Resisting Arrest with Threats to Officers, DUI, and for providing a false name to the offices. Santiago will have an Immigration Hold as well.

While it is true that some of the members of that club have difficulty in understanding what it is that Dave says, most of us have studied Boston under Dave’s guidance and manage to follow him reasonably well. Some of us have not yet quite learned how to speak Boston but we seem to be able to waddle through hearing and understanding.
This becomes a bit more difficult when Dave becomes excited or passionate about an issue. One has to have an advanced degree in the language of Boston to understand him then.
For example, when we suggested we send Dave back to Boston for the San Diego Padres versus the Boston Plaid Sox game, he became so excited that none of us at the restaurant understood a word he said. But, yes, he’s going back for the 3rd and 4th of

appear to be Captain Bob Benton, newly named Captains Craig Carter and Mike Loarie. All are good men . . . some would say great men.
Where, Oh where, is our Chief?
That’s the question many residents of Escondido are asking. Former Chief of Police Jim Maher has resigned, Interim Chief of Police, Cory Moles, has announced his retirement . . . and the Escondido Police Department is without a Chief of Police. This is an important position and one that City Manager Clay Phillips has to weigh heavily.
Odds are strongly in favor of hiring from within the department. Chief candidates
It would appear Captain Bob Benton has the inside track, however, he will be eligible for retirement in three years. If appointed Chief, would he stick around? It’d be nice to have a Chief for eight to ten years. Stability, a building of a strong chain of command, grooming successor officers to take the top positions, an opportunity to plug in programs and execute them and nurse them along until they bear fruit . . . all important elements of being a Chief. Benton has been a Captain for almost three years.
Captains Carter and Loarie have only been recently promoted from Lieutenants to Captains. Is it likely to go from Lieutenant to Captain to Chief in the space of about three years? Not normally, but one must remember that the competition for the Captain’s slot was very, very
close between thenLieutenants Bob Benton and Craig Carter. Benton got the nod but it was a razor thin decision. Both officers are close friends and Carter applauded the decision even though it must have hurt to not get the golden ring at that time.
Both Carter and Loarie have a few years before they are eligible for retirement so, if either of them were named, chances are they’d stick around for a few years. In talking with veteran officers and knowledgeable people, all agree the former Chief Jim Maher did a masterful job, getting more done for the department with fewer resources, than most any Chief in recent history. He reduced the crime rate, he reduced the hit and run incidents, he made our streets safer streets on which to drive, but perhaps most important of all, he groomed some top notch successors. Men who were capable of leadership, who were tutored by Maher, who could step in as Chief right now and the public would be assured we
April 18, 2013 - Page 5
had an outstanding Chief.
I, for one, would like to go on record as acknowledging former Chief Jim Maher as an outstanding example of a top executive getting things done.
He paved the way for new officers to move up the chain of command. Any one of the three would be a good choice. We are in a fortunate position. However, the time is rapidly approaching when a decision needs to be made.
This city needs a Chief of Police and sooner, rather than later.
There’s work to be done, officers to retain (we’re losing officers - that needs to be reversed) . . . and policies need to be developed and implemented. We urge Escondido City Manager Clay Phillips to name a new Chief of Police as soon as practical.
That’s our opinion. What’s yours?

Carlsbad Crime Rate Remains Lower than County Average
On April 10 SANDAG released the “Thirty Years of Crime in the San Diego Region” report. The report showed a 7 percent increase in reported FBI Index crime when compared to 2011. Reported crime in the City of Carlsbad reflected a similar increase.
The SANDAG report summarizes and it is important to note that most of the reported numbers were still among the lowest in the past 30 years. “The City of Carlsbad crime rate reflects what is going on countywide and even nationally, just at a lower level,” said Fiona Everett, police department management analyst. “Even more important, the City of Carlsbad violent crime rate is always in the bottom one-third in the county.” Carlsbad Summary
· The number of FBI Index crimes reported in Carlsbad increased 9 percent when compared to 2011.
· There were 265 violent crimes reported in 2012 compared to 205 in 2011. In comparison there were 11,838 violent crime reported county-
o Carlsbad’s violent crime rate is 2.46 per 1000 population which is 53% lower than the countywide average rate of 3.77 per 1000 population.
o Aggravated assault is the main violent crime category. There were 182 reported cases in 2012 compared to 154 cases in 2011. Countywide aggravated assault cases increased to 7,840. § 23 percent of this category is family related crime cases, and 13 percent of this category is reported threats of violence.
§ Countywide aggravated assault represents two-thirds of all violent crime in 2012. o Robbery is the next category. There were 55 reported cases in 2012 compared to 39 in 2011. Countywide robbery cases increased to 3,200.
§ 33 percent of the reported robberies were thefts that escalated to robbery and 10 percent were bank robberies. o Besides homicide, rape is the smallest violent crime category. There were 26 reported cases in 2012 compared to 11 cases in 2011 and 691 cases countywide.
§ Important note: The number of reported rapes in 2011 was significantly lower than those reported in the past five years. The past five years revealed an average of 24 reported cases per year making 2011 the variance. § Rape is a violent crime but not necessarily a random act. In almost all the reported rape cases the suspect was acquainted with the victim. · Residential burglary did not show a significant change.
· Non-residential burglary increased slightly in 2012. There were 198 reported cases when compared to 171 in 2011. · The number of vehicles reported stolen in Carlsbad was 149 in 2012 compared to 127 in 2011. Countywide, after experiencing a 30 year low, this number increased 7 percent to a total of 12,135 vehicles stolen in 2012.
According to SANDAG, “Public safety officials are aware of the changes and are strategically addressing them.”
“Through the three-tiered approach of crime analysis, prevention and enforcement the men and women of the police department work tirelessly to combat crime,” says Police Chief Gary Morrison. “Community members can also play an essential role by being the eyes and ears of their neighborhood, being a good witness, reporting crime and suspicious activity, and removing all opportunities for crime.”
Chief Morrison also said it is important to keep statistics in perspective. The safety, security and quality of life of those who live, work and play in the City of Carlsbad are top priority. To that end the City of Carlsbad Police Department is a full-service department that actively responds to every call for service. The department continually looks for ways to work smarter and be more effective. Crime Analysis Directed Policing. Also, the police department

Was visiting with good friend, Dr. Greg Hurt, when he told me he had just worked another day till 11pm.
“Doc,” I said, “you need to slow down. Don’t work so hard.”
“Thank you!” said Sonia, his beautiful Russian born dental assistant. “We’ve been telling him that for ages!”
Doctor Hurt is a handsome young guy, totally dedicated to his profession of dentistry.
But he works too hard. He goes to many continuing education classes, as he wants to stay current on state of the art dentistry and deliver the best dental care to his patients.
Admirable, but it won’t do any of us much good if he winds up getting sick from overwork. If you, too, are a friend or patient of Dr. Hurt, please suggest he slow down a bit. •••••

SNAKE! HELP! Rattlesnake Season is Here!
They hiss and slither. They hide and they strike. One bite can kill you, your dog, your cat, or your kids. Rattlesnakes are coming out of hibernation and your Rancho Coastal Humane Society (RCHS) is reminding pets (and their people) that they can avoid snakebite by following a few simple rules. "Sunset is when you're most likely to encounter a rattlesnake," according to RCHS spokesman John Van Zante. "People need footwear that gives protection. Keep your dog on a leash and on a well-used trail. And carry a stick. Hitting the bushes can scare snakes away." Other basic rules tips can save pets and their people:
• Don't go places where there are likely to be snakes • Don't put your paws, hands or feet where you can't see (like under a log or rock) • Look before you leap. Step on a rock or log instead of jumping over it • Take your cell phone for emergency (not to talk or text while you hike) • If you stop to rest, look before you sit • Be careful around water. Snakes can swim and they look like sticks in the water. • If you see a snake...LEAVE IT ALONE! Van Zante says that a tlesnake's strike distance be one third to one half length of its body and faster than a human eye see.
ratcan the it's can
What should you do if you or your pet are bitten by a rattler? "Probably most difficult, try to remain calm. If you panic or run, that spreads the venom faster. And get to a doctor ASAP."
Try to remember what the snake looks like. Your veterinarian or Emergency Room will want to know how big, what color, shape of head, and anything else you can tell them." "We've also heard of people who pick up what they think is a dead snake, only to find that it's resting. And even if it's

Roland is a 3-year-old neutered male shepherd mix, ID 71030. Roland is a sweetheart who is respectful of your space and responds well to corrections. He is an active boy and will benefit from lots of exercise and room to run. If you’re looking for a dog you can leave alone for an extended period of time, Roland probably isn't the right dog for you. He's looking for a home with a family who has lots of time to spend with him. He is comfortable with other large dogs, but he would prefer a home with children 10 and older and no small dogs or cats. Roland is available for adoption at the Escondido Humane Society, 3450 E. Valley Parkway. His $85 adoption fee includes neuter, microchip, upto-date vaccinations and vet exam.

Maple’s $145 adoption fee includes up to date vaccines, veterinary exam, spay, and microchip. If you can't adopt her, consider sponsoring Maple until her new family arrives.

Escondido • Mayor Sam Abed Clarification on Waterpark
The City has heard from many residents regarding a developer’s idea to build a water park in Kit Carson Park. They are concerned about potentially changing the nature of the park, as well as using city funds for it.
It is true that the Hawaiian Falls Group is exploring building a multifaceted “adventure” park just north of the amphitheater. They presented a conceptual idea to the Economic Development sub-committee in March. However, they have not yet submitted a formal proposal or a project application to the City. At this stage it is simply an idea and the City Council cannot take any action on it. It has been pointed out to the develop-
er that there are significant site issues at Kit Carson Park, including not having enough available land, traffic, parking, proximity to possible mitigation areas and wetlands, and their ability to finance their project without City funds. The developer has indicated he will hire a consultant to explore these further, but has not been back in touch with the City since then.
Please know that if the developer does submit a proposal that meets the City Council’s standards, then the next step would be to allow the developer to submit a project application. That application would then trigger a lengthy review process by staff and more importantly, by the public. This would include full environmental study, public meetings and public hearings at both the Planning Commission and the City Council.

Microsoft’s W8 seminar with Cactus Jack
Cactus Jack called me at the store. “Pick you up in five minutes,” he said.
Jack owns Rainbow Computer Emporium in the backcountry south of Temecula. He looks and sounds like a whiskey gulping “Yosemite Sam,” with dirty white hair and a tobacco stained mustache. Jack’s meaner than cat crap and treats his customers with utter disdain. Nome can’t stand him but I kind of admire his complete lack of any redeeming quality. Jack is a man’s man.

Take One Down, Pass It Around, Grab Your Growlers of Beer
In recent years, California’s craft brewers have gained national attention for their high quality beer, promoting tourism and commerce in many regions of the state. Today, legislators are working to support the industry.
Currently, craft beer companies are unable to refill containers brought in by customers, if the container was bought from another brewery. These containers, referred to as growlers, are typically half-gallon glass bottles that customers can purchase and reuse. Legislation introduced the
I looked at my watch. It was nine thirty. Jack usually doesn’t get drunk until early afternoon. It seemed safe. “Lets see if Nome will let me go.” I turned to ask her but she was already waving at me “I heard, just go,” she said “Wait for Jack in the parking lot, I don’t want him stinking up the store.”
The presentation was starting when we arrived. Jack interrupted the Microsoft rep and tried to get him to open the bar. He told Jack that the bar opened after the presentation not before and asked him to please find a seat. Jack grumbled and the kids from Geek Squad giggled.
“Because W8 (wait) until it goes away is what everybody’s a doin” Jack hesitated for effect. “Ain’t nobody buyin’ it.”
over the “Geek Squad” in the game of “Team Angry Birds” they were all playing on their Android smart phones.
At that point a huge cheer went up from the Fry’s sales team. The Microsoft rep brightened, “That’s more like it, this is exactly the kind of enthusiastic response Microsoft is looking for from you computer professionals.”It turned out that the Fry’s guys were cheering a two-point victory
I decided to walk back to the store.
The crowd went wild with laughter. The Microsoft rep pointed an angry finger at Jack “You folks in the industry better learn to love it because we aren’t going to allow you to sell computers with anything but W8 for the next two years!”
At this point the Microsoft rep gave up and opened the bar. I got a sandwich and beer and looked around. The Fry’s sales guys were arguing amongst themselves over whether they could sell service contracts on flashlight batteries and the Geek Squad had started a drinking game that involved throwing ping-pong balls into plastic cups. Jack had bribed the bartender into giving him a whole bottle of bourbon and sat off to the side taking huge swigs from the bottle and enjoying the spectacle.
The rep explained that Windows 8 was a truly excellent operating system that had been sabotaged by a devilishly clever misinformation campaign led by Apple, Google and some foreign anarchists. He asked the group for comments about W8. Jack raised his hand. “Ya done right by naming it W8” he drawled. “Why is that?” asked the Microsoft speaker.

While the presidential election garners most of the attention, the people we send to Sacramento will have a far greater impact on our daily lives.

Letters to the Editor
A small group of the entire populace wants domestic partnerships elevated to marital status. The media is used to desensitize and impose this lifestyle. Marriage contracts between a man and a woman has been honored in all world cultures and by every faith. Americans tolerate things we don’t like. The majority should not be forced to honor what it considers to be wrong. President George W. Bush said, "Ages of experience have taught humanity that the commitment of husband and wife to love and serve another promotes the welfare of children and the stability of society."
The New Family Structures Study (ScienceDirect.com) 3/2012, of young adults of same-sex parental relationships show them to not be faring in life as well in comparison to the stable intact biological family. The areas noted to be adversely affected are education, employment, use of drugs, and plagued with depression. My heart goes out to families entwined in the gay lifestyle. I would encourage them to pray and seek counseling to restore self-respect to these lost souls. We all need support, love and compassion. It takes perseverance and working together. That’s what families are for. "Nations decline and eventually die when sexual immorality becomes rampant and the traditional family is discarded…" states Carl W. Wilson’s book "Our Dance Has Turned To Death." The Roman Empire collapsed due to the immoral decay of society. Condoning homosexual commitments help spread AIDS, . . . the rest is history.
Part of the homosexual agenda is to "…to transform the notion of ‘family’ altogether." As stated by Michelangelo Signorile in the Out! Magazine, Dec./Jan., 1994. They are pursuing to confuse children by indoctrinating them to accept this alternative lifestyle. Taxpayer dollars are used. This is dangerous. Children are vulnerable and sexuality is not fixed and open to change. We can decide to embrace or resist feelings and choose behavior. Good moral standards keep us safe.

I have traced my direct line of the Norman clan from Alabama to the area around Killeen, Tx. From there some of the brothers migrated into the panhandle of Texas and my particular line migrated to the area around Anson, in Jones County in the center of Texas.
I would like to get in touch with Bill Norman and compare notes, if he is interested. Roy Norman Escondido, CA.
Editor’s Note: Your email and contact information has been forwarded to Claudia Aragon, the author. She may be able to put you in touch with Mr. Norman. Black Sunday
This was a very interesting article up until the end, which did not exist. I believe that the writer could have done quite a bit more expounding on what has happened to prices, partly due to the drought, what may happen if this drought continues for another year etc. Next time, put her in touch with me and I will tell her how to provide more information to make the story seem to have more of an end.
Good story for the history of the period of 1935 - 1939 and then just fell apart.

Afghanistan: Cut Losses
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 gourmand meals for twenty some odd years, Generally I enjoy THE PAPER, and the CHUCKLES, and, often your feature stories, if they are on subjects that interests me.
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
April 18, 2013 - Page 13
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. The possibility of a small nuke to the Kaaba might get the attention of some folks who give tacit approval to the bomb throwers and encourage them to try to prevent some of this crazieness. (Jeez, I didn't say that)
These thoughts are some of those of only one guy. No doubt there are many more, among the three hundred plus - million people out there, who have better ideas on how to solve some of the world's ills. Sincerely,
John Tashjian Old Dad of Rattlenake Gulch San Marcos, CA. Two Fans
Dear Community Paper:
My husband and I have been enjoying the jokes in your paper every time we go to Kaiser, Carlsbad to visit Dr. Nancy Newman. We laugh so hard sometimes we almost fall off our chairs. We are considering coming every week, appointment or not, just to read the jokes in your paper. Great stuff! Keep up the good work! We were wondering if you have a distribution point in Encinitas, where we live. We would like to read it without a $15 co-pay at the Kaiser

surgery is not necessary.
Dr. Valentina Obradovic, a pioneer in laser gum disease dentistry in the San Diego area, is reporting great success with the new Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure in her San Marcos, CA., office, Adriatic Dental. This advanced laser periodontal disease treatment is minimally invasive and shows long-term results.
Dr. Obradovic is part of only one percent of dental professionals in America who can offer this treatment. Now, with the LANAP treatment, a state of the art laser is used to remove the gum disease, and invasive
Adult patients across America numbering in the millions have gum disease. However, only a relatively small number of them get the treatment they really need. Whether it is out of fear of the standard periodontal disease treatment or because they haven't yet been diagnosed, the result is the same; the disease continues to progress. With the new LANAP protocol, apprehension about the procedure should be greatly lessened, which should aid more patients in seeking needed treatment.
Ultimately, gum disease can lead to receding gums and the loss of teeth. The FDA cleared PerioLase MVP-7 laser not only selectively removes the bacteria and unhealthy tissue, which reduces gum recession, but also stimulates the jawbone around the teeth to begin the natural regeneration process so that teeth can be saved. Patients interested in LANAP should contact Dr. Obradovic today for a complimentary con-
sultation. For more information about LANAP visit www.valentinadds.com. Adriatic Dental, located in San Marcos is a general dental practice offering patients personalized dental care throughout North County. Dr. Obradovic graduated from the University of Belgrade Dental School, one of the best in the country.
