I learned about Annie online and she was getting on the short side of her stay at the South L.A. Animal Shelter, meaning she had stayed there about as long as they were going to let her before putting her to sleep. Annie had a bunch of folks rooting for her and trying to find someone who would save her. I saw her picture and decided it was time to pitch in and help save the girl. She was due to be put down within twenty four hours.
I got her ID number and the address of the shelter which I had not been to before and drove up there on the 20th of February. It was an easy save. That means there were no lines that day and there were ample shelter staff to make the adoption process move fast. I was in and out in twenty minutes. This is contrasted with L.A. County Shelters which can be a couple of hours where it is like the DMV – take a number and wait. And then wait some more. As I finished the last of the paperwork and paid the $102 fee, one of the highest shelter fees in the area, they brought out Annie. She was full of life and seemed to know she was busting out of that place. Her senses were telling her something. Her sniffer was going overtime and she was very animated.
When you get a dog out of a shelter there is a change that comes over them.

get there every day to get them out and walk them around. In addition to my three dogs at home and another besides Annie in the kennel, I get lots of walking. But she needs it as part of her “fitness program.”
Upon putting the word out to my “friends” on Facebook one woman in Sunnyvale offered to foster Annie. She had fostered other dogs four or five times and was offering to foster Annie. That would change the adoption methods because I would have to shift my focus to the San Jose area instead of San Diego but for what it costs to board dogs full time in kennels, I needed to get her in a less costly place while we looked for a good home. On Thursday, the 28th, we hopped in my 2007 Honda Element and began the 720mile round trip journey. The plan was to drive up straight through and then possibly even return late that night if I was feeling up to it.
perk them up and they start looking optimistic. It is one of the rewards of saving dogs. You are there when this metamorphosis occurs. You see them get happy immediately following a time when happiness was not in their vocabulary. Because these dogs get rescued at the last minute generally means they have been there and the anxiety, boredom, worry and hopelessness which had built up over their stay was suddenly being washed away in hope and optimism. So back to Annie. Annie had been a stray that was picked up and brought in. There was an old microchip but it yield-
ed no current data and she was without a family. I was her new “family,” at least for a while. She appears to me to be about 4 years old but could be one year either way. It was hard to tell. Annie was a little overweight and that was magnified by the fact that she is not a large German Shepherd. She is on the small side so the weight issue seems like more than what it would seem on another of a more normal, larger size. We would have to work on the weight. My routine with these dogs I save is that they go to San Marcos Kennels and I try to
Annie and I arrived at the address of the intended foster person a little early. She was working until 7pm and we got there fifteen minutes ahead (We had a good tail wind). All was fine initially while we chatted but after a while I began to get the sense that maybe this foster volunteer was backing out of her commitment. She commented that she was concerned that she might get a back ache if Annie pulled on the leash while walking. After a demonstration, that appeared to fall away. Then she thought her dog, a year old male Shepherd might not get along with Annie, who had gotten along with every dog and person I had seen her with but she didn’t want to have to deal with two dogs fighting. The truth is they

did well together. Last she said, “I think it might take longer to adopt out Annie because she needed to lose some weight first,” and apparently was only interested in fostering a very short time. It was like she was looking for excuses to back away.
The alarm rang at 5 am and I got up rather mechanically. Getting up wasn’t what I wanted to do but the day was not waiting and I wanted to get out of the metro area before the traffic got going plus I had to have Annie back at the kennel before 1 pm when they would close down for three hours. Our stops would have to be few and Annie would have to do her business on cue (which she always did.) It seemed like she got the sense of urgency.
I finally just said, “Well, it looks like you are very reluctant to foster her now and since I don’t want to go through the time and expense of yet another long trip to come back and get Annie, we better just go because it will be a long trip back and we need to get some rest so we can get up early tomorrow to go back home.” I was saying all this at the same time I was actually having a hard time seeing how this person could have the nerve to tell me after having just driven 400 miles at her invitation, only to turn us away.
I said, “C’mon Annie, let’s go,” not looking back. She followed along dutifully and we climbed back into the Element and went in search of a Motel 6, which I have

At other times she wanted to ride “shotgun” in the front passenger seat and check out the action out of the front window and passenger window. Still other times she preferred to sit in the middle of the car, looking out the front window but from in between the two front seats. A good little traveler. It was always funny watching her trying to arrange herself on the front seat in the most comfortable way. I picked up a few tips.
We got back to San Marcos at 12:42 pm and just enough time for me to get her to walk a little more before handing her back to the kennel staff. She once again obliged me with some DNA samples before going back in. I told the staff to give her a good bath, a good grooming and a ribbon to finish off her whirlwind trip to northern California.
We got to know each other better on the trip and I learned how special she really is. I like her a lot. And she is a big kisser. She likes to show her appreciation for the things you do for her. What I left out was that this was a second failed attempt to place her in a home. The first failed the Saturday prior when a person in northeastern Arizona who wanted both her and Rex, another Shepherd I have in the kennel refused to let us inspect her home and the premises to ensure the dogs would have a proper place to live. That trip would have been even longer than the Sunnyvale trip. It has been hard but we are determined to do the right thing by her. Annie is a very unique looking Shepherd. She has big round pretty eyes and I am not sure but I think she puts on eye liner before I see her in the morning… Editor’s Note: If you’d like to foster Annie, or adopt, or help in any way, call Bruce Krider at 760.612 9156.

Page 4 - May 02, 2013 Escondido Murder Suspect Jailed under $1 Million Bail
Michael James Hemphill, 58, of Escondido, was facing eviction. He got involved in an argument with the friend of his landlady and, it is alleged, he shot the friend. Hemphill has pleaded not guily last Friday to charges of murder. Hemphill faces up to 35 years to life in prison if convicted of first-degree murder and an allegation that he used a gun to kill Brandon Sanchez, according to the District Attorney’s office.
Vista Superior Court Judge Marshall Hockett ordered Hemphill jailed in lieu of $1 million bail. Escondido police responded about 8:30 p.m. Wednesday to a report that shots had been fired on McDonald Lane, near Alexander Drive, in a neighborhood east of Felicita Road. When officers arrived, they found Sanchez, 36, outside of a trailer in the backyard. He
had been shot once in his chest and died at the scene, police Lt. Neal Griffin said.
A woman at the residence stated that she had been trying unsuccessfully to evict Hemphill, who lived in a trailer on the property. Police claim Hemphill provoked the argument and shot Sanchez in an unprovoked attack.
Hemphill called 911 to report the shooting. He was arrested at the scene. North County Sprinter Trains Back?
A North County Transit District official claims the North County Sprinter trains may be back on the tracks in "a matter of weeks." As of March 9th of this year, the light-rail system was shut down due to accelerated brake rotor wear. Originally, officials guessed the shutdown would be two to four months. The Oceanside-Escondido rail line has received heavy critibedroom. She pulled the drapes back and pointed toward the patio. And there it was. A rather largish snake. Thick, maybe 4' long. No rattles.

Mixed reactions have been heard from a variety of persons concerning the new law restricting overnight RV parking in Carlsbad.

Garter snakes are not very aggressive . . . gopher snakes will try to emulate a rattler . . . and they can do a pretty good job of it, too. They coil, they will strike . . . and they might bite you. But their venom, if they have any, is not toxic. Still, getting bit by any kind of snake is not an experience I seek.
What had drawn Evelyn's attention was the fact that Punkin, my least favorite cat, was lying on the carpet, behind the bedroom drapes, sleeping. When she the snake saw her she apparently pawed at it through the glass. The snake, in response, coiled and struck at Punkin, striking the glass hard and making a loud thudding noise. This startled the cat and set the pups to running around as well. Knowing Evelyn, I have a hunch she, too, was more than a little startled. Snakes are not high on her priority of treasured wildlife.
Having made the journey all the way from the family room to our bedroom I did the only logical thing left to
Supporters of the ordinance say it’s not aimed at the homeless, but instead at a long-standing problem with people who leave their oversized vehicles parked for extended periods on public streets.
In the past, RVs and other oversized vehicles could be parked on the street up to 72 hours without a permit before they had to be moved to a different spot.
The new ordinance prohibits parking those types of vehicles on city streets between 2 a.m. and 5 a.m. However, residents and visitors can get free annual permits to park their large vehicles on the street for up to 72 hours at a stretch, several times a year. The city recently installed about 30 red-and-white signs explaining the new ordinance along major thoroughfares, mainly at points where drivers enter the city.

Several times evelyn came in, looking out the window, searching for the snake. "I wonder where he went," she mumbled.
"If you'll open the sliding glass door, step out on the patio and then gingerly walk along the perimeter of our house, following the foundation, you just might spot it again . . . or its mate," I offered, always being the helpful one with advice.
"No, I don't think so," she said.
"Or it might, even as we speak, be slithering down a gopher hole, seeking out its breakfast . . . or, given the time of day, its brunch."
"Well, we sure do have plenty of gophers. It ought to find plenty of food," she observed.
Thereafter, she gave up further searching for the snake. ‘Man About Town’ Cont. on Page 5

Right at the top of the list is Kiwanian Barbara Sanchez, principal of Lincoln Elementary School in Escondido. Everyone was raving about how Barbara’s “Young Marines,” students from her school who were outfitted in Marine type uniforms, so efficiently helped the little tykes catch and land their first trout at the now famous “Kiddie Pond.” The Kiddie Pond is stocked with hundreds of hungry trout and kids 7 years of age and younger are the only anglers allowed to fish that pond. Poles, hooks, bait, all supplied and there are plenty of
Kiwanian, Escondido Senior Anglers, and Young Marines, all present and eager to help the young ‘uns.
Not a much prettier picture than the smiles and laughter of kids catching their first trout.

Bruce comes every day to take me to a dog park and play for an hour or more but its not like having a real home or having my own family. He tries to be there for me but I still sit in a kennel for the other 22 hours every day. I would really like to sleep at the foot of my master's bed and go hang out and just be a pal.
I am great with all dogs and people except that I am a little fearful of people when I don't know them. There were some people in the past that were not nice to me so new people need to show me they are not going to hurt me before I am really comfortable.

lives are guided by the culture and mores of my country and not those of foreign lands. People in the USA legally but who remain non- citizens are not my peers! I also object on the basis that this legislation only serves to further narrow the differences between citizens and non-citizens. The advantages of citizenship are already sufficiently obscured by a plethora of ultra liberal programs. Please do not support AB 1401. It is easy to understand that our courts need a broader base of qualified potential jurists. If the legislature would pass bills that required all businesses to make employees available without docking their pay or charging the absence against vacation time or sick time the jury pool would expand proportionately. Also, the reimbursement rates for jury duty and mileage are seriously out of touch with economic reality. Let's address these issues and find responsible solutions to the jury pool problem. AB 1401 and giving away our citizenship rights and responsibilities is not the the American way! Thank you,

A Response from Senator Mark Wyland
Thank you for taking time to contact my office and share your thoughts on Assembly Bill 1401. I appreciate hearing from you on this issue.
AB 1401 would expand jury duty obligations to include lawfully present immigrants. While I have not yet had an opportunity to vote on this measure, it gives me great concern. Lawful immigrants should and do have every right to live, work, and be part of the community, but they do not owe their allegiance to the United States. There are certain rights and duties, such as voting and jury duty that are rightfully reserved only for citizens. This

Nome and Paul Van Middlesworth thecomputerfactoryltd.com The Computer Factory Staying in the Game. Part 1
Last year we ran this series to help our readers avoid “malware” attacks. We have updated it and are running it again. Losing your identity or the use of your own PC to criminal attacks is more than annoying. Internet criminal activity costs home and business users billions of dollars a year in fraud, repairs and lost business.
Avoiding exploits on the Internet requires vigilance. Because the Internet transcends all geo-political boundaries, there are no comprehensive rules of law that govern fraudulent or criminal activities on the WWW. Each country is responsible for enforcing its own laws regarding the Internet. Western nations typically have laws pertaining to criminal activity by citizens originating within their borders but many Eastern nations either don’t have or don’t
You’re Now Free to Work for Yourself
Last week, working Californians started earning money for themselves instead of giving it to the government. Tax Freedom Day, April 24, marked the end of the 114 days that Californians have to work each year to pay off their federal, state and local taxes. The non-partisan Tax Foundation calculates Tax Freedom Day for the nation and each state. It assumes that the nation starts working on January 1, earning the same amount each day and spending this income only on taxes. Tax Freedom Day “arrives” when citizens have earned enough to pay off all of their taxes. Californians
enforce such laws, as a result, most organized criminal activities are centered in Eastern Europe, the middle East, Asia and Africa. It is estimated that international crime families launch 80% of Internet attacks.
Malware attacks fall into two categories. Covert attacks are designed to avoid detection. They quietly mine data and pass it on to criminal “botnets” without disrupting your PCs operation. Overt attacks are visible and often disruptive. They seek shortterm benefits by exploiting the computer or the user directly.
E-mail hacking is a common covert attack. You get a message asking you to verify your account with your Email account username and password. You comply not knowing that you have just responded to a “phishing” attack. The “phishermen” now have access to your e-mail account. If this attack was for the purpose of “data mining” you will never know you’ve been hacked. The “phisherman” will use or sell the access to your account. Someone will be reading your in and out E-mail “mining” data on you and your contacts and you will never know it.
The E-mail hack becomes overt if the purpose of the “phishermen” is to use your account to contact others. They may exploit the trust or influence you possess with your contacts to promote scams, sell products or create “hits” on commercial URLs. They may use your account to contact only your address book or for mass mail-
ings. Either way you will know about it pretty quickly and will be forced to change your E-mail access information. Your E-mail provider may even shut down your account for excessive traffic or user complaints.
E-mail service providers may periodically ask you to verify your account. How can you know if the request is legit? Many providers offer a “personal stamp” option. You select an object, color and key words that will appear every time your provider contacts you. If you don’t have a “stamp” and you are asked to verify your info in order to gain access to your account simply back out and access your Email account by typing it into your browser (IE type: yahoo e-mail sign-

Other “Phishing” attacks are used to con users out of personal information. Age, SSN, driver’s license, birthplace and date, bank account #, credit card and pin #s, addresses etc. What may seem to be a harmless request for a single piece of personal information may be the last piece of data they need. Criminal “botnets” are extremely patient and efficient at collecting data. It may take them several years to piece together all the information needed to steal your identity for criminal purpose.

ity, all government programs would cease. A growing, vibrant economy leads to increasing employment and generates tax revenues necessary to maintain California’s fiscal solvency.
Since California has some of the nation’s highest taxes and most stringent regulations, it is not surprising that thousands of businesses have shut down or relocated to other, more business-friendly states. When a business fails or relocates, not only its employees suffer, tax revenues also vanish.

Other bills would impose new taxes on small business owners and create a new sick leave mandate leading to fewer jobs and less hours for workers. These are just some of the “Job Killer” bills introduced this session. The Chamber’s full list is available at: www.cajobkillers.com As the last decade clearly demonstrates, no economy can tax and regulate itself into prosperity. The Legislature must take action now to make our economy more competitive by reducing high costs and regulations that are driving businesses and jobs out of California.

A Roman Catholic miracle, and The Post buries it in Sports? This is typical of your godlessness. I'm sure if it was some Vatican scandal, we would see it on Page 1 above the fold. Bishop Leads Wildcats Past Missouri
I find it commendable that the clergy are attempting, like Saint Patrick in Ireland, to rid the land of dangerous animals. However, your story irresponsibly fails to tell us where the good bishop is taking these creatures. Is he bringing them to the D.C. area? Show a little civic responsibility, please, and inform the public. Pakistan Holds Members of Ethnic Movement
What is the world coming to when Pakistani officials can get away with humiliating its enemies by holding their members? D.C. United Se Une Hoy a Campana Solidaria Pro Centroamerica
I was disgusted with the sloppy spelling for the article on D.C. United. There were so many typos I couldn't understand a word. To the editor:
You Washingtonians are so selfabsorbed! Take Sunday's weather report. You go on and on about weather in the Washington area. You can bet that here in Muscatine, we don't spend all our time talking about Washington's weather. Republican Leadership Vacuum Might Open Doors for Governors
When will these Poindexters in Washington understand that the American public won't put up with their gross misspending of U.S. tax dollars -- $600 hammers, $2,000 toilet seats, and now vacuum cleaners to open doors for Governors? Please. I am eager to contact Mr. Scott Black, the "rumpled money manager," as I am eager to have him sort and straighten out my wrinkled currency. Life's Laws

3. Money can't buy happiness, but it sure makes misery easier to live with. 4. Deja moo: The feeling that you've heard this bull before. 5. Psychiatrists say that 1 of 4 people is mentally ill. Check three friends. If they're OK, you're it.
6. Nothing in the known universe travels faster than a bad check. 7. A truly wise man never plays leapfrog with a unicorn. 8. It has recently been discovered that research causes cancer in rats.
9. Always remember to pillage BEFORE you burn. 10. If you are given an openbook exam, you will forget your book.
11. Corollary: If you are given a take-home test, you will forget where you live. 12. The trouble with doing something right the first time is that nobody appreciates how difficult it was.
13. It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.
14. TJ's Law: You can't fall off the floor.
15. The average woman would rather have beauty than brains because the average man can see better than he can think. 16. Clothes make the man. Naked people have little or no influence on society. 17. Vital papers will demonstrate their vitality by moving from where you left them to where you can't find them.
18. Law of Probability Dispersal: Whatever it is that hits the fan will not be evenly distributed. A careful study of economics usually reveals that the best time to buy anything is last year.

No one should live by the early bird policy without finding out whether he classifies as a bird or a worm. Sometimes I think I understand everything, then I regain consciousness.
