Last week I proudly joined law- makers from the Senate and Assembly delegation represent- ing San Diego to celebrate the important work of the Fisher House Foundation.
The nonprofit Fisher House Foundation provides lodging for the families of our nation’s service men and women receiv- ing medical care at major mili- tary medical centers. For over two decades, the local Fisher House at the Naval Medical Center has provided help for military families during their time of need. By providing a “home away from home,” the Fisher House allows recovering service members the opportu- nity to heal with the support of
At a ceremonial luncheon, the Foundation received a Resolution recognizing its gen- erous contributions that ensure our soldiers are comforted when they return home. We are all grateful for the brave men and women serving our coun- try. Please take time to honor their sacrifice and the sacrifices made by their families.

agreed to show a short-cut around the lake, as the ice was starting to melt, making it very hazardous to try to cut straight across. After sharing breakfast, the party started out and reached the other side in safety. Daniel Fraser thanked the men, and agreed to stop back on the return trip months later.
At the end of the mining sea- son, Fraser and his friend returned to the lake, and found the same cabin. No one was there, but the breakfast dishes were still on the table, just as they had left them months before. Fraser figured that the men had decided to try the route across the lake on their return trip, and had broken through the ice and drowned. Even on this return trip, Fraser himself had broken through ice, but was close enough to the shore to survive.
Prop. 13 Assault Continues
Excessive taxation led California voters to overwhelming pass Proposition 13 in 1978 restricting property taxes and requiring a two-thirds vote in the Legislature to pass tax increases. Since that time, Sacramento liberals have made dozens of attempts to change the law and raise your taxes.
Wisely, taxpayers have rejected most increases – includ- ing the last eight tax increase measures on the ballot.
The lack of taxpayer support for these increases, however, hasn’t stopped liberals in Sacramento from their relentless attack on your pocketbook. Just last week, legislation was introduced that would make it easier to place tax

the victims and rebuild the trail to the top of the pass. By the time Fraser and all of his sup- plies reached Chilkoot Pass, it was well into June and the route was back in full operation. He checked through the North West Mounted Police customs at the top of the pass on June 13, 1898, along with his two rel- atives—W.A. Fraser of Caledonia, NY, and L. Fraser of Livingston County, Wyoming.
This trip was marked by a near-

SCA 15, the so-called
“Taxpayer Right to Vote Act,” is nothing more than an attempt to reverse Prop. 13 and feed liberal appetites with more government spending.
Sadly, SCA 15 is just one of the many anti-taxpayer bills in the Legislature. Last week, my conser- vative colleagues and I were able to defeat a constitutional amend- ment that would have effectively barred private citizens from plac- ing measures on the ballot. ACA 6 required a funding source to be identified before a measure could appear on the ballot and would have robbed taxpayers an oppor- tunity to vote on tax reduction measures!

On one of his trips, Fraser and his companion stopped at a cabin by one of the frozen lakes.
Another story Fraser told about the Yukon involved a man who had come up with a creative way to make money. Eggs were scarce up there, so the man stocked up back in the States and planned to sell them when he reached the Yukon.
quickly made a dollar per egg, selling out in no time. His great windfall was short-lived, as the miners began trying to cook the eggs.

Scenario #2 Want to save files, will- ing to reinstall applications.
Approach#2 Copy files to bench hard drive, virus-scan files, reformat and reload Windows, reinstall device drivers from WWW, copy files back to original drive. Now you must install your applications programs in order to access your files. Cost $120.
Scenario#3 Want all my user files and I don’t want to have to reinstall my application programs.
Approach#3 Virus scan hard drive, remove all malware and check Windows operating system. If Windows is not badly corrupted and no reinstallation required, the cost would be $90. If windows is corrupt and must be reinstalled, add another $45 for a total of $135 and you will need to reinstall all applications.
In all of the above scenarios the user hard drive is removed and scanned from our scan stations, then replaced and scanned from inside its home PC. Then the Windows OS is func- tion tested by opening programs, accessing Internet etc.
When we must replace a Windows operating system because it has become corrupt, we use a “real” Windows installation disc instead of the manufacturer’s recovery disc or partition. This saves the customer from having to deal with the spamware that Dell, HP, and the rest, load into their operating system soft- ware.
