Volume 44- No. 23
by lyle e davis
If you are reading the edition of The Paper within the San Marcos Kaiser Permanente Clinic, it may be the last copy for awhile.
A gent by the name of Sean J. Villafranca, building manager for that clinic, has decided that he doesn’t want you reading The Paper and, for several weeks, has ordered his custodians to throw out our papers which had been distributed to most of the departments.
We were delivering between 2500 and 2800 copies each week to Kaiser. We consistently received phone calls and emails complimenting us on our cover stories, on our Chuckles, and our feature stories . . . as well as the local news which covered North County communities.
We were unaware of any problem with Kaiser.
Mr. Villafranca simply decided, arbitrarily, to order our papers destroyed. No phone call to us, no email, no letter, nothing advising us of any problem. We were curious as to what problem Mr. Villafranca had with The Paper. It appears to us that Mr. Villafranca either has a personal agenda or a personal vendetta. We see no other logical explanation.
Our Chief Distributor, Gary Loader, met with Mr. Villafranca who told Mr. Loader that the reason(s) were “offensive jokes,” and The Paper - 760.747.7119
June 6, 2013
that we were racist in our news coverage and/or commentary.
Let’s deal with the last issue first:
Mr. Villafranca may not be aware of it but I founded “Los Caballeros de Aventura” (The Gentlemen of Adventure) about 18 years ago. This was an organization designed to divert at-risk Latino kids to healthy, active lifestyles, to help them discover life and its many adventures. To keep them out of “los pandillas” (gangs) and out of the juvenile justice system. To keep them from killing each other. (The motivation for me to found this group was learning of two young Latinos having been shot and killed in driveby shootings). I ran that organization for six years before retiring and turning it over to others.
During the entire six years I ran Los Caballeros, not one single kid in the organization entered the juvenile justice system. We became close friends with the kids and their families and, to this day, they contact me and let me know how they are doing. Many are married and now are raising their own families. Does that sound like a racist to you, Mr. Villafranca. Making such an unfounded an illinformed allegation suggests that it is you, Mr. Villafranca, who is a racist, not me, not The Paper. I further submit, Mr. Villafranca, that I have probably done far more for the Latino community than you have or would ever hope
As to the second allegation, offensive jokes:
In the 14 years we have owned The Paper we have had run over 728 editions (52 weeks x 14 years) with an average of 15 jokes per “Chuckles” column. That comes to about 10,920 joke over a 14 year period. In that time we have received, perhaps, ten complaints about jokes. At least one of them was valid. I had, via an editing error, had let a scatalogical term slip through and it was published. That was
about 10 years ago. A lady complained and she had every right to. We were wrong and owned up to it.
Jokes are a subjective thing. We seldom, if ever, publish jokes about Mexicans, about Blacks (African-Americans) or other commonly maligned nationalies. I am of Norwegian descent. Were someone to tell or write a joke about Norwegians, I would probably be the frist to laugh, if it were a good one. I would like Mr. Villafranca to point out one “offensive” joke and tell me why it is offensive. We probably get more

positive comment on our “Chuckles” column than anything else we publish.
Gary Loader: One of the patients approached me about liking the paper and when I told her that Kaiser had cancelled delivery of the paper she went to member services and asked why. Then she returned to talk to me and said that the reason member services told her Kaiser cancelled the paper was because of the political commentary, not the "offensive" jokes as Villafrance said. It has since made me wonder why he kept emphasing that HE WAS personally offended by (offensive and racist) jokes in the paper. He did not mention the political point made by member services. Actually I think there's more to this than just wanting to get rid of the paper because HE was offended.” FACT: We have been delivering The Paper to all North County facilities of Kaiser for almost 12 years. Back in October of 2008 we had someone try to ban The

Paper at the San Marcos Kaiser Clinic. We pointed out then that we had been delivering The Paper to all North County facilities of Kaiser for almost seven years (as of 2008). They had received weekly deliveries of The Paper at Escondido, Rancho Bernardo, San Marcos, Vista, and Carlsbad Kaiser campuses. It has been a harmonious relationship with staff and patients alike looking forward to their new reading material every Thursday. Why, we asked, would we now be banned from the San Marcos campus? “You ran an editorial that we did not agree with,” she said. “You had a picture of Senator Obama and had derogatory things to say about him. Plus,” she went on, “several of your jokes we found offensive. I and several of my colleagues found them offensive.” She told us further, “Our PhysicianLeader read your editorial critical of Obama and it upset him. He said he didn’t want this paper here anymore.”

“Physician Leader,” at the San Marcos Kaiser Clinic. He took offense at a paid political ad that was anti-Obama, the then-candidate for President. It apparently did not occur to Dr. Rott that he, too, could purchase a paid political ad supporting thenSenator Obama. Instead, he sought to suppress free speech and ordered all editions of The Paper removed from both the San Marcos as well as the Escondido clinics of Kaiser.
We pointed out that this was a paid political advertisement but had it not been, if it had been an editorial statement by The Paper, that this was something called freedom of speech, freedom of expression, freedom of the press, and it is covered by the First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America as well as the California State Constitution. We would have pointed out that for him/her to order The Paper banned because he or she did not agree with the political statement was tantamount to him/her deciding what others could say, hear, or read . . .

Here is a quick lesson in our history of the 1930's and '40's.
Before there were interstates, when everyone drove the old 2 lane roads, Burma Shave signs would be posted all over the countryside in farmers' fields. They were small red signs with white letters. Five signs, about 100 feet apart, each containing 1 line of a 4 line couplet ... and the obligatory 5th sign advertising Burma Shave, a popular shaving cream. Here are some of the actual signs: DON'T STICK YOUR ELBOW OUT SO FAR IT MAY GO HOME IN ANOTHER CAR. Burma Shave TRAINS
and this is a serious infringement of freedom of the press. We raised holy hell.
Our readers rallied to our support and called and wrote the corporate officers and board members of Kaiser and, thanks to their efforts we received a conciliatory letter from Kaiser corporate that said: "We want to apologize for any confusion that may have occurred when you were told that The Paper could not be delivered in mid-October. Some of the comments that were made to you were inappropriate and do not reflect the position of Kaiser Permanente."
In the November 20th, 2008, edition of The Paper, the headline read: The Paper Now Available At Kaiser Permanente San Marcos

Marcos Kaiser Clinics to distribute The Paper. They have also acknowledged that their people were in error. Readers of The Paper may now find it again in the patient waiting rooms of the San Marcos unit of Kaiser Permanente, as well as other Kaiser units throughout North San Diego County. The Paper had been banned from that and other Kaiser units, briefly, but all is now well.
Lyle E. Davis, editor and publisher of The Paper, said: “I regret the incident ever occurred. We were pleased to work with Kaiser Permanente top management and it appears the problem is now resolved. I want to thank the many readers who wrote to Kaiser, who called them, who sent us Letters to the Editor, who called us in support of our First Amendment rights. We could not have accomplished this resolution without your support and for that, we thank you. Bottom Line? We have kissed and made up and agreed to play nice. We’re back in good graces with Kaiser Permanente and hope to keep it that way.”
Fine. All was well. Everyone was happy. Or so it seemed. Our distribution every week increased and the surplus copies we picked up the following week diminished to 23 percent. This means folks were reading The Paper and taking it home with them! Until Mr. Villafranca decided he didn’t want you to read The Paper.
We know that what the San Marcos Kaiser facility has done, via Mr. Villafranca, is violative of the First Amendment by attempting to suppress free speech. Their ban of our papers is based on content and they acknowledge that. That is suppression of speech and by one or two people. So Who Does Banning The Paper at Kaiser Hurt?
It hurts you, the reader.
You won’t have the chance to learn the results of investigative journalism we have
undertaken to protect you, the consumer. You won’t get to read fascinating cover stories about adventure, travel, historical slices of time. You won’t get to read the handy information provided by our brilliant columnists.
And you won’t get to chuckle at The Chuckles Column. (We’ve been warned by many of our readers the if we ever took the Chuckles Column out of The Paper we’d be drawn and quartered. And maybe spanked.)
If we find out about a corrupt politician . . . a swindler running around loose . . . a sex offender being released into the community . . . how are you going to learn about this, absent your favorite community paper, The Paper? We have been very pleased at the consistent reports we get from our readers who have picked up copies of The Paper while visiting the various Kaiser clinics. They enjoy the Chuckles, they enjoy the cover stories. They either agree or disagree with our editorial positions . . . but they grant us our right to express our opinions, just as we offer them the right to express theirs via the Letters to the Editor columns and/or Guest Editorials. Next time you go into the San Marcos Kaiser Clinic and notice there are no copies of The Paper, you may want to call Mr. Villafranca and let him know how you feel. He can be readily reached at 5104170) (Fax # (760) 510-5753).
Back during the 2008 spat we were concerned when Ms. Casey Hart, a Communications Officer for Kaiser said that, “you do not serve your cause” if we were to publish the story and to say we were banned. I took this as a veiled threat that if we went with the story that we would be automatically denied access to all Kaiser facilities. I don’t respond well to threats.

Uproar Over Escondido Council Members Illegally Parked - No Parking Citation Issued for Parking in Fire Lane
A Facebook video posting of Escondido City Councilmember Mike Morasco, parking in a red zone, has Facebook users abuzz over what they perceive as favored treatment.
At issue is the fact that red curbs, by Vehicle Code CA VC 21458. (a) (1) Red indicates no stopping, standing, or parking, whether the vehicle is attended or unattended, except that a bus may stop in a red zone marked or signposted as a bus loading zone. The photographer, JC Playford, confronted Councilman Mike Morasco, asking him about the red curb and the parking hydrant issue.

The red curb cited has “reserved” written on them, and is intended for City Council members and senior staff. This appears to be in violation of the law. ucts and games of the Fair for the current season.

We saw a number of celebrities - some of the more visible members of the media such as Dave Davis from KUSI’s morning news anchor desk, Paul Bloom, former KUSI anchor (and why isn’t he on the air? He’s great!), Graham Ledger, former KFMB news anchor (his date for the evening, Angelica, did the bungee jump. She has more guts than I do - not for me. She said it was a rush. I bet!) - also saw Ken Kramer of KPBS, and Ed Lenderman, also of KUSI-TV. There were probably a lot of other media types we didn’t recognized because, like me, they hide behind a computer screen and keyboard and are seldom seen outside their mental wards.

I don't know if you are aware of this, but our California Assembly in Sacramento just passed a bill, AB817 that proposes to permit non-citizens to work in California Polling places. I personally oppose that legislation and have sent emails to several State Senators from San Diego County urging them not to vote for this idea when it comes before the Senate.

Simply stated, there is absolutely nothing that can legally take place in a polling place that requires use of foreign nationals. Our citizens are required to possess sufficient skills in English as to permit them to vote. Recently the Assembly passed a bill that proposes allowing "legal resident non-citizens" to serve on California jury duty. I also opposed that bill and hope you will join me.

Lieutenant Tom Albergo responds to the scene and politely takes down the information given him by the photographer and promises to look into the matter. He did not, however, issue a parking citation. Fire Department Captain Corey “Chip” Cheney comes out, confirms he’s been with the department for 28 years; very polite, answered all questions, confirmed it is illegal to park in a red curb zone, suggested the photographer file a complaint with Fire Prevention Office of the city.
JC Playford said he wanted to make the point that either the curb is illegally painted red, indicating a fire lane, or the councilmembers cars are illegally parked; further, that the close proximity of the cars parked near a fire hydrant, including a handicapped parking spot, is also in violation.

What Should Your Dentist Know?
“We learn something new every day.” This adage certainly holds true especially in the fields of medicine and dentistry today. With technology changing so much and so rapidly, it is now more important than ever for your dentist to be a lifelong student. The skills taught in today’s dental schools prepare a graduating dentist with a basic background of treatments … but it
The “drill them and fill them” of old times has passed, with the new paradigm being that of comprehensive treatment to preserve optimal oral and whole body health. This new model necessarily requires your dentist to incorporate a broader examination of ALL the factors affecting your health and necessitates the inclusion of more treatment modalities to meet their patients’ needs and working with other dental and medical specialist to cure their patients.

Some of the newer treatments learned through continuing education include: Sleep Apnea and snoring which are becoming epidemic, can now be detected, tested and treated, allowing you to stay healthier and more rested, while avoiding surgery. New treatments of migraines and jaw joint issues provide patients new remedies, often without the need for strong pain medications, many of which are addictive.

He gloms on to all three pieces of bread before flying off to some adjacent tree where, I suspect, he is feeding his babies while momma bluejay is probably out shopping at Nordstroms.
We see another attractive bird that may be a lark; too large to be a wren, not the right coloring for a robin. Not sure of the species . . . but an attractive one.

I have not seen a robin red breast in California. We also see mommy and daddy red-headed woodpecker flitting about a couple of trees. I suspect they, too, are feeding their young.

All is well with the world. Again, we're only getting two days of a five day time share but we're grateful for the relaxation time. Last week we got three days at Tamarack Beach in Carlsbad, this week two days at Welk's. The shortened time-share stay, in both cases, are due to the demands of putting out a weekly newspaper and having to meet the deadline during the early portion of each week.

We barbecue Tri-tip steaks in the afternoon. I convey my gratitude to the brilliant chef (me) and ask Evelyn to tip him heavily. (She declines). We have some quiet time to talk and make goo-goo eyes at each other. I make more googoo eyes at Evelyn than she does at me. It's only fitting and proper.
I get my dates screwed up and we come back into town for a Grand Opening for a new client. Wrong Thursday. It's next week. No matter.

Sad to see the patients at Kaiser Permanente in San Marcos being denied the pleasure of reading The Paper. All because one individual decided what you can and cannot read.
We thought this was all resolved back in 2008 when we had a similar incident. Kaiser apologized and from that day forward we were welcomed back into Kaiser waiting rooms. Until now.
You, our readers, responded and helped us out before. We hope you’ll do it again. By contacting the officers and board of director members and letting them know of your displeasure . . . perhaps Kaiser management will get the message and end this ban. I should point out that I am a very contented Kaiser patient. Love the doctors and nurses. It’s only the occasional management type(s) I have some problems with. Thanks in advance for your support and help. ‘Man About Town’ Cont. from Page 7
or so . . . sleep, and then check out Friday morning around 10am. Then back to the grind. Generally, a nice, relaxing getaway.
The curmudgeon in me feels obliged to mention a couple loose ends that Welk's needs to attend to:
a. While our condo unit was beautiful and the patio looked out on a scenic golf course, we had to walk down a flights of stairs to get to our unit. Initially, I felt like a second class citizen, going down "in the basement" to get our lodging. It still rankles me. I would not stay in this particular unit again; also, I would
require that we see the unit before accepting the reservation. b. There is only one computer available for hotel guests at the recreation center . . . and the center is noisy, with lots of kids playing foosball, billiards, other assorted games. Not worth waiting to use the computer; not an "executive suite" like so many hotels have with several computers, faxes, etc. c. Because we are in the basement, elegant though it is, it is surrounded by concrete walls which blocks access not only to wi-fi but to our cell phone signal as well. We have to go out on the patio to make/receive cell phone calls and/or activate our cell phone computer access. d. The folks in the unit above us have a dog. You're not supposed to have a dog here. They snuck it in. We could not sneak ours in as they are barkers. The doggie patrol would find us out in minutes and clap us in irons and frog-march us off to the hoosegow. We do not inform the Customer Service Center about the upstairs dog. It's fairly quiet with only an occasional bark and we're dog lovers . . . so we understand. e. Both electronic bbq's are not working. We call maintenance and have to wait 30 minutes before one responds. He is able to get one bbq operating, the other needs repairs. That's fine. I seldom use more than one bbq at a time. Once the bbq is working I become a masterful chef. Even mean ol' Evelyn said so. f. No writing materials in the condo. Most hotels/condos I visit have writing paper, pens, envelopes - I have to call guest services. They deliver the smallish notepads and ball point pens in about a half hour. Tired of waiting for them, we had already gone for a walk. Okay. Curmudgeonly rant over. On the plus side, Welks runs a pretty classy operation. Grounds are well maintained, beautiful landscaping, the units are lovely with generally great amenities. Of the two, however, I prefer Tamarack Beach Resort. Were I a golfer, I might change my opinion. But I no longer golf.

Priscilla is a 3-year-old spayed female grey tabby mix, ID 72541.
Priscilla is a sweet girl who likes to be held and cuddled on your lap. She is a fun companion who enjoys playing with her kitty toys and being silly. She would prefer not to share your attention, so she would be happiest as the only feline in her new home. Priscilla is available for adoption at the Escondido Humane Society, 3450 E. Valley Parkway. Her $85 adoption fee includes her spay, microchip, up-to-date vaccinations and vet exam. For more information, call (760) 888-2247 or log on to www.escondidohumanesociety.org.

Friday, we had returned home and, once again, lived like normal people.
PS: Yes, I know there is no such word as "snuck." But "sneaked" sounds too high falutin' and "snuck" more accurately describes what transpired. So sue me.

Escondido • Mayor Sam Abed Regional Research and Branding Initiative
A regional research and branding effort among the cities of Carlsbad, Escondido, Oceanside, San Marcos and Vista is now underway. The branding consultant, North Star, has begun working directly with the Economic Development staff members of the cities. The first steps will be a research and strategy process in which the cities will provide North Star with existing information/documents as well as responding to questionnaires pertaining to our economic development efforts, tourism, arts organizations, business organizations, marketing materials, communications plans, etc. Following that, North Star will be creating an online survey
that each city will send in July to business and community leaders in each city. In August North Star will come to North County for an asset-based FAM Tour (familiarization tour) and to conduct interviews with elected officials, key stakeholders, staff and economic development and tourism-related interests. The research and strategy process will be completed in the Fall and the full project should be completed early in 2014. Each city is contributing $21,000 to the effort. The branding effort will promote North County’s economic development brand, encourage job creation, and improve and promote the region’s competitiveness among economic development interests, the business community, industry associations, and educational institutions.

What is Microsoft thinking?! Part one
For much of the last century the consumer was king. “Build a better mouse trap and the world will beat a path to your door” was a believable mantra. American business actually subscribed to the idea that success came from meeting the consumer’s needs. American engineering and production focused on making better products at lower cost. Design and build a quality product, tell the world about it, then stand back and count the money flowing in from your satisfied customers. Today it’s not so simple. The consumer often seems to be just a troublesome pawn in a huge zero sums game of monopoly.
In late October 2012 Microsoft’s released Windows 8 (W8). At that
Still Protecting Taxpayers 35 Years Later
June 5, 2013, marked the 35th anniversary of Proposition 13, a citizen led effort to address property tax hikes.
In the 1970’s, California’s elderly homeowners were faced with uncertain property tax rates that had not only a financial impact but also a personal impact on families.
Elderly Californians who lose their homes because they cannot pay property taxes endure emotional and medical struggles as a result of the changed home environment. I believe that allowing people to be unfairly taxed out of their homes is bad public policy, and in 1978, many voters agreed. More than 4 million
time Windows 7 (W7) was rolling along with 94% of new PC sales. Suddenly Microsoft stopped W7 licensing allowing only W8 sales. Only small independent builders like THE COMPUTER FACTORY are still allowed to buy W7 licenses and build W7 PCs.
W8 was basically W7 with a user interface called “Metro.” W8 ran into trouble immediately. The Metro interface was fine for touch screens but cumbersome for the mouse/keyboard interface familiar to most PC users. The start button and familiar desktop had been replaced by a confusing array of blinking rectangles. Retail customer took one look and balked, contributing to a 30% drop in retail PC sales. Business users also said no thanks. Last month Microsoft boasted that W8 was wildly successful meeting their goal to sell 100 million copies in the first six months. Microsoft made the same disingenuous claim about Vista six years ago. How could Microsoft make these claims when the entire world knows that both these OS have been unmitigated flops? Here’s how it works. Microsoft has contracts with manufacturers and distributors that require them to buy a certain volume in order to maintain price preference. Much of W8 sales are simply inventory building and channel filling. Microsoft sold W8 but it gathers dust on distributor and retailer’s shelves.
Californians, almost 63% of the electorate, supported Proposition 13. It established predictable property tax rates for homeowners and benefited families on fixed incomes.
Proposition 13 continues to enjoy broad bipartisan support. According to a recent poll, more than 64% of likely voters believe Proposition 13 has been good for California.
We should celebrate this taxpayer protection and ensure that it continues to serve Californians as it has for the last 35 years.
Here is another deception. Corporations buying PCs want W7 not W8. The corporate buyer is required to buy a W8 license but is given a free W7 installation at the factory. Microsoft counts it as a W8 sale even though the user has no plan to use W8. It’s called “Microsoft Downgrade Rights” and Microsoft has been using it for years to try to create a bandwagon effect for their newest OS. Theoretically Microsoft could “sell” 100 million W8 OS and have no real W8 users. That actually may be close to what’s happening.
Industry analysts constantly monitor the market share of each OS by polling the WWW to determine which OS are being used to access the Internet. Although technically PCs with W7 haven’t been sold for months, W7 share of the Internet continues to grow each month. The obvious explanation is than many of those W8 PCs are actually W7 machines.
Believe it or not, Gun Crime is Decreasing
Recent tragedies such as the mass murders at Newton, Connecticut, and last year’s shootings at an Aurora, Colorado, movie theater have led to renewed calls for gun control legislation at the state level. Indeed, around 30 bills dealing with firearms and firearms-related issues have been introduced in Sacramento. In light of these horrific incidents, it is entirely understandable that polls show most Americans think gun crime is increasing. The legislature’s knee-jerk reaction ignores the fact that gun crime has significantly decreased in the United States over the last 20 years.

related crimes, including homicides, robbery and assault, are much lower than
May surveys show W8 to have captured an Internet share of about 3%, that’s only half the share Vista captured in its first six months and Vista was roundly regarded as a disaster.
In summary, Microsoft remains in denial while retail and business customers avoid W8 and business partners like Dell and HP badly miss financial objectives because of slumping PC sales. Why doesn’t Microsoft simply say woops and fix it? It would be a simple enough to restore the start button and the desktop. Then every one would be happy. How does it make sense for Microsoft to keep whistling in the dark pretending that W8 is successful? Is Microsoft acting rationally by stonewalling its industry partners and deliberately ignoring its customer’s needs? Strangely enough the answer may be yes. Tune in next week
they were two decades ago. In addition, nationwide figures show gun homicides have fallen 72 percent since their peak in 1993. Nonfatal gun crime has also been more than cut in half during the same period.
These statistics cover a period in which many states have eased laws restricting the carrying of firearms, with over 40 states now allowing citizens the right to carry a concealed weapon, subject to state licensing requirements in most cases. Clearly, limiting (or preventing) access to firearms by law-abiding citizens does not diminish crime. In fact, a very good argument can be made that armed citizens serve as real deterrent to criminal activity.

Escondido Creek Conservancy Nominated for Award and Chance for $25,000 Grant - The Escondido Creek Conservancy (TECC), a non-profit dedicated to the preservation, restoration and protection of the natural open space within the Escondido creek watershed, has been nominated for the 2013 ECO Ambassador Award for their Elfin Forest Interpretive Center Education Program (EFICEP) and a chance for a $25,000 grant. The Interpretive Center Education Program for children began to create an after school program to get kids outdoors. Teachers saw the impact the program was having on the students and requested that it be incorporated into their curriculum. This exciting program includes an annual school wide assembly followed by a class presentation to prepare students for their field trip to the Reserve. Students experience discovery-based, hands-on activities that engage and challenge their thinking about the watershed, and all visitors leave with a realization that they are responsible for the environment and can make a difference. The 40 volunteer docents have served over 1,000 students during the past year, mostly from underserved areas that have limited opportunities to explore the natural wonders of a watershed. Other programs include docent-led hikes, family lecture series, partnership with a local high school and special presentations. The Interpretive Center at theElfin Forest Recreational Reserve is located at 8833 Harmony Grove Road, Escondido. For more info, visit www.escondidocreek.org, or call 760.471.9354. The ECO Ambassadors Award is a collaborative partnership between The San Diego River Park Foundation, SDG&E, and CBS Channel 8. The $25,000 grant

The Pastor Says . . .
The Paper is proud to introduce a new feature - a weekly pastoral letter from four of North San Diego County’s most outstanding pastors! Each week, beginning next week, we’ll have a different pastor to present his view of life, of the world, of the spiritual element of life.
We have pastors who are brilliant speakers with timeless messages and thought provoking ideas to share and inspire.
Our first week we’ll begin with long time friend, Pastor Richard Huls, now retired, but still a fascinating speaker.
The following week we’ll have Pastor Hal Seed from the New Song Community Church in Oceanside. A dynamic speaker and prolific author, Pastor Seed always brings out the best in his congregations and his readers. The following week is Pastor Sam Brumit . . . who had left

to answer a call from a church in Tennessee, but after three years felt such a yearning to return to North County that he answered that greater call and started a new church, M316 (Mission 316) in San Marcos.
Our fourth week features Pastor Chico Goff, a young man who grew up in North County and who at one time had a troubled youth until he heard and responded to the call of the ministry. Today, he heads up the beautiful Mission Hills Church of San Marcos, preaching to overflow crowds. These four stately gentlemen will entertain you with their thoughts, their wisdom, their counsel. (You may well decide to visit their churches).
The Paper is proud to affiliate itself with these wonderful pastors. It is just one more of the diverse services we feel is incumbent upon us, as a community newspaper, to provide. Please enjoy.

A typical Letter to the Editor, following the 2008 debacle sums up our position rather well: “I want to express my disappointment that Kaiser has chosen to decide what I can and cannot read. It reminds me of times past when religious groups decided what books their community could read. If they didn’t think the books appropriate they burned them. I feel like we have regressed in time with the action Kaiser has taken.
Patients enjoy reading The Paper. It makes the time pass quickly while waiting for their appointment. My mother looks forward to my bringing The Paper home. She loves the Chuckles column.
The fact that The Paper is free is a wonderful thing. In this day and age of greed and not doing something for nothing, The Paper is doing the community a great unselfish service. Now I have to go elsewhere
