July 16, 2014 Richard Michael Mitchell November 5, 1936 - June 22, 2014 Richard Michael Mitchell passed away suddenly/on June 22, 2014 leaving behind his wife Sue Wetherholt, his two sons David Kraft Mitchell and Paul Scott Mitchell and his beloved daughter Amy Mitchell Goodrich. He also left his two step-sons, Terry D. Wetherholt and Michael E. Wetherholt. He was so loving and" considerate to all of us. He was born in 1936 in Alton, IL to Charles W. Mitchell and Marie McKindrick (Calame) Mitchell. He was a brother to his two sisters, Pat Bridges, Ruth Brooks and brothers Ron Mitchell and Don Mitchell. As a wonderful husband, father, brother and friend, he will be missed so much. He also had 6 grandchildren, Grant, Weston, Taren, Kieria, Lilly and Ryan long with several cousins, nieces and nephews. He attended college in Illinois obtaining a Chemical Engineering Degree and worked in Chemical and Bio-Engineering until retiring in 1998 from Jacobs Engineering Co. He was continually learning and growing throughout his life. He enjoyed traveling, skiing, sail- boarding, water skiing and dancing, almost anything active. A private memorial service will be held at a later date. His family will also be spreading his ashes in the Sea of Cortez where he and Sue spent special times in their winter home in San Felipe, Mexico. Bonham Bros & Stewart Mortuary and Cremation Service assisted the family.

By jerking the meat, he could transport and sell it as "beef" before any unsightly maggots hatched out. He became a Yuma prison guard and was rumored to have put down a prison riot with a Gatling gun, but I can only confirm that a visit to the prison today will make you appreciate your life. It was thought that he killed all the camels off, but as late as 1881, Indians on the Gila trail were reported to have eaten a tasty descendant. Then there is the alleged "Red Ghost," an aged, reddish camel with a spectral desiccated wind- tattered corpse slumped over its hump. Usually, it is seen in the darkening hour when the moon is full, the wind restless, the thirst quenched. I swear I am not making this up. Maybe George missed the camel and hit the rider. He was the kind of man the NRA adores, but then nobody is perfect. Much of George's later career was as border guard around Campo, scene of a gunfight way better than the hyped-up "OK Corral" Hollywood hoopla. Think of it in modern terms as a meeting of "open carry" guys versus "stand your ground" storekeepers. I wonder who gets to shoot first, constitutionally, and if my bazookas are protected by the second amendment, being "arms." My friend Bryon Harrington and his leathery posse re-enact the bloody Campo shootout. He has published an action packed book about it: Our library or Google will connect you to the bad old 70's in our back country when bad guys (and some good ones) got to twist slowly, silently in the wind. Or drop in at the old Campo stone stere to learn how to hang two banditsfrom a tree with only one rope. It seems that Julian did not have as much head bashing or "lead pollution" as surrounding cattle country. Miners preferred quieter means of "conflict resolution" using everyday tools. Even the whiskey-sloshed Irish at Cuyamaca City seemed content to just boyishly brawl with bierbetrunken Germans in the saloon. The saloon itself got wrecked, though. Read all about it at Stonewall Mine. It was all the fault of putting the wrong record on the crankup Victrola. Bryon is not just a quick- draw virtuoso, but also a prospector and bullwhip artist, a "renaissance man" of the Old West, you could say, preserving our culture. He who lives by the gun need not die by the gun. Just living is by Albert Simonson perilous enough. The air around George's Campo home had lead pollution, for sure, but it was stomach cancer that got him on May 1, 1931. As for Hi Jolly, there are articles, legends, photos and songs about this famous Palestinian cameleer on the internet. A lot of it is very imaginative. A quick search yields all the camel memorabilia you need, with on- line shopping and an incredible selection of black velvet art and tawny stuffed objets d'art of the critter genre. In winter, rockhound paradise of Quartzsite, Arizona metamorphoses into America's largest snowbird RV parking lot. Besides the sun, the greatest and only attraction is Hi J011y's tomb, a rock pyramid with a bronze camel on top. His tomb is said to be shared with Topsy, last of the original camels from North Africa. Except for size, it's just like the pyramids of Giza. To the end, Hi Jolly believed that some of his beloved camels still roamed our desert. He died on the dusty trail, with tired eyes seeking, they say, the lost camels of his youth. Some say he died in a moment of bittersweet reunion, that he was found with his arm still clasping a camel's neck. Weep not, for he died as he lived. Still, I remain skeptical, because it seems he could have hung on only with the help of rigor mortis, greatly annoying the camel. He was right; a camel was captured in 1946 and there was a later sighting south of the border, where you never know for sure what's in your taco. The presence of live cats is usually a good sign. Think about it. If you study his famous tomb, its minerals, its petroglyphs, its symbolism, its onlookers, you will learn a lot about the west, and also perhaps about people who believe pyramids concentrate bio-cosmic psychic energy into their self-realization, whatever that means. Quartzsite celebrates "Hi Jolly Daze" with a "Camelmania" parade, usually in January when snowbirds are in residence and ready for races like they never have in Michigan, ready to feel their slush-sodden spirits soggily soar. Foreign tourists come to learn what America is all about and to write travel articles about us. We do not disappoint. This may be just right for you if you want to expand your horizons and bust loose and explore the far fringes of Western Americana. You could get lucky and find camel or turkey jerky. You might even catch a glimpse of Red Ghost and his mummified rider out in the gathering dusk, a bit after Happy Hour, a jolly time in old Quartzsite. What the heck. Sometimes you need to just go with the flow. "'Hi Jolly" leading the US Army Camel Corps, and the monument to him and his "ingenius" idea outside Quartzite, AZ. The Julian News 7 Thinking of Buying a New Cell Phone? Four Things to Know Before You Do (StatePoint) Buying a cell phone, despite all the options for models and stylish cases, is no easy task. Endless questions crop up about calling plans, data plans, voicemail and insurance. Getting a new phone may be a task that happens more often than you like -- as one in three smartphones are damaged within the first year of purchase. So how can you make sure you're making the best decisions? Comparison Shop Surf the web and read customer reviews to determine what features are priorities for you and what phone delivers on them. There's no sense in purchasing a more costly device with features you'll never use. Some manufacturers offer rebates, which can significantly lower the cost of your new phone. So investigate your discount options. Know Yourself Will you be using your phone for everything? Do you make a lot of calls or are you a big texter, media streamer or Web surfer? Know your needs. If your voice minutes and data plan are limited, you may end up incurring additional fees. Find out what free apps can help cut down on extra costs and honestly assess your communication needs before committing to a plan. Get Protection While manufacturers' warranties cover malfunctions for reasons beyond the user's control, the reality is that accidents are just waiting to happen.' From short-circuiting in the pool to shattering on the sidewalk, you'll be stuck paying $650 for an iPhone or $545 for a Samsung Galaxy, if your phone breaks without a protection plan. But costly insurance through your mobile carrier is what makes many consumers balk at the idea of insuring their devices. On average, a consumer pays $10 or more monthly, plus deductibles of $175 or more. Far more sensible options are out there. For example, SquareTrade offers $5 a month protection plans with a $75 deductible - that's less than half of what most mobile carriers charge. And SquareTrade allows for up to four repairs or replacements within your tw0-year plan. For Apple devices, look into Applecare. SquareTrade or ApplcCare are far more economical than getting insurance through your mobile continued on page 10 6 Cruise'n On The Forth Of July Celebrating 4th of July in Victoria, British Columbia on Sit & Fit Alaskan Cruise."
