DeAnza Park, cougar killing, causes of death, Oceanside homeless

Reader readers chime in

The notion is being sold by advocates as a quick and easy way for the city to clean up the De Anza Cove site.

Are you aware that Campland on the Bay and DeAnza Mobile home park, were owned by the same group previously? (Campland gives big to Campbell, News Ticker, June 10) So the city leasing the DeAnza Cove RV Park to Campland would be just like giving it back to the company they took it from.....

Teachable cougars

Regarding the article (“Whether to kill San Diego mountain lions,” City Lights, June 12) you could have titled it “To Co-exist with a Cougar.” I support the Fish and Wildlife’s decision to kill this lion as it had attacked the child who was accompanied by many adults as well as his father. However, if this were the only circumstance under which we killed the lion, and we only hiked with others[and] we kept our domestic animals safely sheltered, the lions would very quickly learn not to harm us. Hunting is for food, it is not a sport to be misused. The Mountain Lion Foundation will teach and help residents who have animals to build lion-proof fencing so that their animals can be kept safely. We need our wildlife and biodiversity. Let’s learn how to live safely among them.

Painful releases

Dr. Voytek and his students have done a great job bringing to light, with the currently accessible information, on what “causes” the death of Americans (“Bradley Voytek’s voyage: from Deep Space Nine to deep data mine” Golden Dreams, June 19). It certainly would be wonderful if after someone passes, the family or Coroner would release, to either the CDC or FDA, what prescription medications the patient was currently, or had been taking for the last years of their life for chronic ailments. With Dr. Voytek and his students finally being able to access this info from the CDC and FDA, it would show which of these powerful medications all these people were taking for so long, and would certainly give a much more accurate picture of what really caused their deaths, from not just “cancer” ( abnormal growth of mutated cells), but how these powerful drugs affected their immune systems, virtually shutting it down, because normally our immune system would go and destroy these mutant cells quickly when they occur, but especially with arthritis, these drugs, along with all their recorded side effects, such as Crohn’s Disease, along with many other ailments such as pneumonia and viruses that normally would not kill anyone with a normal functioning immune system, when used along with antibiotics given in time, but because of a compromised and virtually nonexistent immune system, we are losing way too many people between 50 and 70 these days, due to these powerful prescription medications just because the patient wanted to continue to play golf, play guitar, run marathons, ride bicycles hundreds of miles a day, and not feel pain. I believe if they were told that these medications and their side effects are going to shorten their lives significantly, they might think twice before taking them and might stop doing these painful activities. Also, take a look at the very significant rise in dementia and Alzheimer’s, totally correlating to the rise of the use of “statins,” Lipitor and Crestor and others, over the past 2 decades, it’s not a coincidence. Now that “they” are all generics, (no more commercials, what a surprise) it is “now” known that long term use of these reduces cholesterol levels to where it affects the memory significantly, for ever. Of course, the pharmaceutical manufacturers and prescribing physicians love the fact that medical records are “confidential,” but once someone dies, it’s up to the family. I think everyone will benefit once this information becomes available and Dr. Voytek and his students can release it.

Let them eat ketchup

Regarding the Take Back Oceanside Facebook site (“How to deal with Oceanside homeless,” Neighborhood News, June 14). It seems that the people of Oceanside, at least the ones involved in this Facebook site, have started a new trend of bashing the homeless. It seems that some of the posts have suggested dousing their clothes with ketchup while sleeping, shipping them to Victorville, and one went so far as to say that it might encourage them to clean themselves up and get off the street. This Facebook site and its bashing, justified or otherwise, seems to be trending along with the recent homeless feeding bans which have occurred in parts of our county. Apparently the El Cajon Mayor Bill Wells feeding ban made nationwide and even international news when humanitarians attempted to feed the homeless after the ban [and] were arrested [and] given misdemeanor charges. Apparently that ban was rescinded. In Pacific Beach and La Jolla there were petitions to get churches to stop feeding the homeless, and even one of the council members in La Jolla directly approached one of the priests at the church, Father Jim Rafferty it seems, to encourage them to stop feeding the homeless. So San Diego county really, really is coming to the forefront of probably one of the meanest counties in Southern California. So shame, shame, shame.
