"A democracy cannot exist as a permanent
form of government. It can only
exist until the majority discovers it can
vote itself largess out of the
public treasury. After that, the majority
always votes for the candidate
promising the most benefits with the
result the democracy collapses because
of the loose fiscal policy ensuing, always
to be followed by a
dictatorship, then a monarchy." -

Earliest known picture
of Corvallis Oregon ~ 1868
One of Benton County's
more colorful Sheriffs was Solomon King,
who followed Palmer with a 10-year term
from 1876 to 1886 -- the longest term
served so far in the county.
Sol King was "taller and
bigger than most men of his time" and
the best known of the historic King
Family in Benton County. He came to
Oregon in 1845 on a wagon train when he
was 12 years old. In 1872, Sol King and
his wife and six children moved to
Corvallis, where he purchased the
Corvallis Livery, Feed and Sale Stable.
(above on the right)
The family ran the
business for 14 years before giving it
up after the barn burned. In 1876, King
ran for Sheriff for the first time and
was given the support of the Corvallis
Gazette, the local newspaper. The paper
praised him for his struggle "to manhood
thro' the pioneer difficulties... For
his opportunities, no man, for
generosity and whole-souled help, to
those in need, has more to rise up and
call him blessed than Sol King."

I like Safeway good enough; there, 14 donuts equals one
Just don't go in and try to buy 5 'assorted varieties'
Post breakfast cereals between 14-20 ounces for $5.00 with
their coupon in the paper this week. It doesn't matter if
a certified Safeway employee TELLS you that means ANY Post
cereals in that ounce range. You better just get Raisin
Brand (yuck) or Honey Bunches of Oats cause THAT'S what
"assorted varieties" mean. Because, when you get to the
checkout, it will ring ANY other variety up at regular
price. Then when I innocently told the checker to stick
them up her butt, she pressed some hidden button that
froze her computer screen and it wouldn't do anything.
After getting about half the employees gathered around the
cash register, they had to shut the machine down, restart
it, then take all the groceries back out of my cart and
run them again while the line behind me grew to mob
proportions; and about the same mindset. All the while I
was sweetly telling the impromptu employee meeting if they
didn't practice bait & switch and deceptive
advertising they wouldn't have this problem. THEN to my
rescue came one young checker who blurted out, "Oh, we
have been hearing this complaint all week!" Everything
came to a standstill as all the other employees stared at
her and the assistant manager turned beet red while
writing down her tag number.
I left with my chin(s) held high, albeit no cereal.

When I got my truck, I scratched the rust with Brillo pad
or sandpaper; whatever I could get to. Then blew
everything off with air; all the little crevices, up under
the truck. Then just saturated everything with WD40. After
it sits hour or so, blow off excess with air (rust has
been stopped.) Then let it sit, for a couple of weeks at
least, and paint with primer. I use spray cans; that way I
can get paint in tight spots with that under truck!! Works
great for me.
If its rusty, it gets the WD40 treatment from me. And yes,

his famous quote, his lifelong friend, William "Wille"
Winchester countered with his own astute quote, which
he hurriedly wrote on the back of the Jack of Spades;
"God made all men, Winchester made them equal". Later
he made it his company's motto. A third man at that
table that night, Samuel Colt, a known
braggart and card cheat also uttered some immortal
words destined later to become his motto, "Fear no

The man who made up the fourth partner at the game
