W.E.R.C. needs public’s help
We come to you with our hands, claws, wings, and paws
extended.
Since 1984, our center has rehabilitated thousands of animals.
We patch them up, set broken bones, and give physical therapy, and
hand-feed babies every twenty minutes. We clean, house and provide
them with special diets, for our goal is to release them back to
their natural habitats, healthy and wild.
As our community rapidly grows, wild animals are forced into
closer contact with humans, often with tragic results. Without your
help, we may be forced to turn away these patients, or even more
sadly, to end our life-saving work. W.E.R.C receives no federal,
state or county funding, and is not allowed to charge a fee to care
for wildlife. Our center is supported solely by contributions from
people and businesses in our community who value and respect
wildlife, are concerned about their health and well being, and want
the best possible care and chance for their safe return to the
wild. People like you.
We stretch every dollar and pinch every penny until it hoots,
growls, chirps or hisses.
 We hope you will attend and support our upcoming fundraising
event, the barbeque and auction scheduled Saturday, June 10, from
noon to 3pm at San Martin Country Park. Tickets must be purchased
in advance. Donations may be sent to W.E.R.C., PO Box 1105, Morgan
Hill, CA 95038-1105. Further informati
on may be obtained by calling us at 779-WERC (9372).

Don’t worry, we’re affluent

Try visualizing the number “one trillion”; that’s a 1 in front of 12 zeroes.

That number boggles the mind unless you are a U.S. congressman.

Now, knock your noggin and visualize 8.3 trillion dollars. That amount is what our national debt is at this time; not counting off-budget expenses like 900 billion dollars for the war in Iraq.

Please do not worry; our economy is humming. We are very affluent. This is a strange paradox. Even though our economy improves, the national debt increases; that’s not according to Economic 101.

With a booming economy and increased taxes paid to the government, the debt should be going down. With increased spending, and despite an increased tax take, the government has to resort to borrowing through the issue of U.S. treasury bonds to make up the deficit in the budget. The treasury bonds are bought by international bankers and countries such as China, India and Saudi Arabia.

Until the sun rises in the West, all debts must be paid, one way or the other. We currently have a national debt of 8.3 trillion dollars.

With a current budget of 2.7 trillion dollars, there is a 700 billion dollar deficit; not counting those 900 billion dollar off-budget expenses for the war in Iraq. This is a financial nightmare created by a profligate Congress. However, despite today’s debt, the economy is humming, and we’re a very affluent society.

We’ll just have to wait and see what tomorrow brings.

Reader ‘resents’ Navarrette

Ruben Navarrette once again offers no solutions. Once again he denounces assimilation and piquants “cultural relevance.” Once again he obsfucates delineation between societies built on rule of law with those built on bribery and elitism. I guess “the truth is more complicated” when demographics built on illegal immigration impose intolerance and “resentment.” “At least now it’s out in the open.”

Team effort at the Huboi firm

I would like to thank the Pinnacle for doing a feature on my husband, David Huboi; it was a good article in that it pretty much captured his personality. I am writing to let anyone who cares to find out some things about Huboi Architecture.

David and I started Huboi Architecture in 1988. It was a partnership. I have a five-year degree in interior architecture from the University of Oregon. At the time, David was just finishing up his architect’s licensing exams. After he finished, I started my exams but never completed them due to the birth of our one and only child. I have worked as a designer every day beside David, including the day I went into labor and gave birth. I brought my love of historic architecture into the company as my graduating thesis was on historic preservation.

A few years ago, we changed the business to a sole proprietorship for tax purposes. We employ two talented designers and AutoCAD techs, Lisa Bordenave and Leda Rabe. Although we started out producing our drawings by hand in 1988, now the majority of our drawings are produced using computer programs. David is definitely a one-man show when it comes to his contributions to the community and his blues at the Farmer’s Market. However, I think people should know that the achievements of Huboi Architecture are a team effort.
