Volume 50 - No. 45

By Gary Womble

John Wesley Hardin came to Abilene, Kansas, as a cowhand on a cattle drive from Texas in late July 1871. Because he was a wanted in Texas for murder, he used the alias Wesley Clements as well as the nickname “Little Arkansas.” There had been trouble on the trail from Texas and the other cowhands talked about Clements’ gun handling skills and his coolness under pressure. James Butler “Wild Bill” Hickok was town marshal and at this point in time his reputation as a The Paper - 760.747.7119

great gunfighter was literally nationwide. Abilene had an ordinance against anyone not in law enforcement carrying a firearm inside town limits. You could own a gun and carry it outside town limits, but not in the city itself. Shortly after getting to Abilene Hardin visited the famous Bull’s Head Saloon for his favorite pastimes of drinking and gambling. Because other cowhands had talked about Clements quickness and accuracy with a gun, he was quickly approached by the saloon owners Phil Coe and Ben Thompson who

had been a lawman in Texas before coming to Abilene. “Wild Bill” Hickok had been a thorn in the saloon owners’ side since arriving in Abilene. He ordered them to significantly alter a painting on the outside wall of the Bulls Head Saloon. The painting depicted a large bull with a pornographic twist, eventually “Wild Bill” altered the painting himself. They wanted “Wesley Clements” to kill Wild Bill and offered to pay him handsomely for the “work.” Clements declined the offer even after Thompson tried to entice him by stating that Hickok

always picked on rebels knowing that he came from the south. “Little Arkansas” told Coe and Thompson that if they wanted Hickok killed, they should do it themselves. Later while Thompson was recovering from an injury he got falling off a horse, Coe did try to kill Will Bill in a shootout but was instead himself killed in the gunfight. Later that same evening John Wesley Hardin, a.k.a. “Wesley Clements” was approached on the street in Abilene by Hickok.

Hardin was wearing his guns in plain sight a violation of the town ordinance. Wild Bill asked John Wesley if he knew about the ordinance and then ordered him to hand his guns over to him. Hardin slowly took the guns from his holsters and butt first extended them to Hickock. In a split second he spun them around and Will Bill was now staring down the business end of both guns. “Little Arkansas” smiled and then offered the guns again to Hickok who rethought his position and told Hardin he could keep them. He did though warn “Wesley Clements” to avoid trouble while in Abilene. In all the time he was marshal of Abilene, Kansas, John Wesley Hardin was the only man not in law enforcement Wild Bill allowed to wear his guns in town. The two men became friendly and the young 18-year-old Hardin was enamored with having the nation’s most famous gunfighter as a friend. Hickok asked “Little Arkansas” if he wanted to become a deputy in Abilene, but John Wesley knew he must soon keep moving or the authorities from Texas would catch up with him. In his autobiography John Wesley Hardin alleged that Hickok arranged for his cousin Emmanuel “Big Mannen” Clements, who was in the Abilene jail for the murder of two brothers Dolph and Joe Shadden, to escape. Hickok never acknowledged the incident as true or not.

Not long after this Hardin and another one of his cousins John Gibson “Gip” Clements and a cowhand named Charles Couger got a room in the American House Hotel in Abilene. John Wesley and Gip stayed in one room and Couger had a room next door. They all three had been gambling and drinking heavily before coming to the hotel. Sometime after they fell asleep Hardin was awakened by loud snoring from Couger’s room. He yelled several times for him to roll over which he did for a short time. Then Couger began snoring again even louder than before and woke Hardin up a second time. John Wesley in a drunken rage grabbed one of his pistols and shot twice through the wall to wake Couger up and scare him. Unfortunately for both Couger and Hardin one of the two bullets pierced his heart, and he was killed instantly. Gip and John Wesley knew immediately that Wild Bill would be coming for them with several deputies. They got partially dressed and escaped through a second story window before Hickok got to the hotel. They stole horses and hid just outside town until morning and then left Abilene never to return. Many years later reporters, biographers, and people in general asked Hardin if he shot six men for snoring. John Wesley’s answer was always the same that he did not shoot six or seven men for snoring, “Well it ain’t true. I shot one guy for snoring, that’s it.” Apparently shooting six or seven men for snoring would have creat-

ed a moral dilemma for Hardin, but one guy, not so much. John Wesley Hardin had been in trouble most of his young life. He was born in May 1853 just outside Bonham, Texas, to a circuit riding Wesleyan Methodist preacher named James “Gip” Hardin. James was born in Wayne County, Tenn. but moved to Texas with his family as a youngster. John Wesley Hardin’s father named him after the founder of the Methodist denomination of the Christian Church. Hardin’s family later settled in Sumpter, Texas, where his father established and taught at a school. James “Gip” Hardin did continue his ministry but was no longer a circuit riding minister. John and his 9 siblings all attended their father’s it a milk dud or an udder failure?

Sloter was not mortally injured and recovered a short time later, but John was almost permanently expelled over the incident.

Without hesitation John Wesley Hardin drew his revolver and shot Maje five times. The former slave did not die until three days later even though he did receive medical attention. James “Gip” Hardin did not want his son arrested and put on trial in a postcivil war Union controlled Southern state. Gip did not believe John could get a fair trial and that the local corrupt Union government would convict and hang him despite evidence that Maje attacked him first. At the insistence of his father John Wesley left to go into hiding but was soon discovered by three soldiers sent to find and arrest him. Hardin ambushed them as they crossed a creek engaging in a gunfight with all three starting with a blast from his double-barreled shotgun, but then turned to his cap and ball revolver. He killed all three soldiers in the gunfight receiving only a slight injury to his arm. John Wesley was now a fugitive wanted for the murder of four men. He began traveling in Navarro County, Texas, with Frank Polk an outlaw who was also wanted for murder. A detachment of soldiers

caught up with the pair near Pisgah, Texas, and Polk was arrested but Hardin managed to escape. A short time later he and one of his cousins Johnathan Simpson Dixon ran into two of the soldiers from the detachment and each killed one. Not long after Hardin was gambling with James Bradley in Towash, Texas, and was winning almost every poker hand. Bradley told Hardin that if he won again, he would kill him by cutting out his liver, he then drew his firearm and a knife. John Wesley was unarmed at the time and left the saloon without further incident. Later that same evening James Bradley encountered Hardin in the street and shot at him but missed. Hardin then quickly drew both revolvers and fired one shot from each gun hitting Bradley in the head and chest killing him. This episode was witnessed by more than 20 people in the area that night and all of them gave a similar account when questioned about the incident. A man named Judge Moore held the card game stakes and refused to give Hardin the money he had won from Bradley. Moore shortly thereafter magically disappeared never to be seen again. Interestingly Towash, Texas, is now considered a ghost town and is mostly located under a lake developed after a dam was built on the creek.

Hardin left Hill County Texas knowing that even though there were witnesses exonerating him a posse would be sent to find him. A few days later John Wesley Hardin

What a Fun Day at Fall Garden Fest at AVBG - The 2020 Fall Garden Fest at Alta Vista Botanical Gardens was a GREAT day with 450 people (including Board members, vendors, and volunteers) attending, which makes this a successful event during these challenging times. Our 12th Fall Festival featured GREAT teamwork including AVBG Board members, Woman’s Club of Vista members, community volunteers, and a selection of vendors. Event Chair was AVBG Director of Children’s Programs Nancy B Jones, who had the pleasure of writing the Safe Reopening Plan with the County which the City required. This challenge was accomplished in 2 days.

captured a couple members of the posse and took their guns. He allowed them to leave unarmed and told them to wait for him at the Wells Fargo waystation down the road. Of course, he had no intention of meeting them and the other members of the posse. While hiding in Horn Hill, Texas John Wesley killed a man in a gunfight after the two men argued at the circus. Less than a week later Hardin was walking a prostitute back to his hotel in Kosse, Texas. Her pimp accosted the pair and demanded his share of the money she had been paid. Needless to say, that was the pimp’s first and last mistake because Hardin shot him dead on the spot. By this time John Wesley Hardin was 17 years old and had already killed 9 men in various fights.

The gunfight with James Bradley was the closest event in Hardin’s young life to be somewhat like the gunfights depicted in TV and movies. In both TV and movies, it always seems that two men meet in the street at high noon for a gunfight. They have holstered firearms and “draw and fire” is the primary premise depicted. There were of course a few old west gunfights that were like this. But there were far more gunfights where men fired at one another with guns already drawn and the second combatant many times did not even initially see the person who fired. Another issue that seems to escape the attention of movie and TV writers is that guns in the time frame depicted

above were in the cap and ball firearm period. These guns were notorious for misfiring and had inherent problems with rust, damp or wet powder, and ineffective loading. Gunpowder in the mid 1800’s was manufactured inconsistently even by the same manufacturer. There were no governmental regulations like grain size, chemical components, and chemical proportions. The gunpowder itself at times was corrosive and caused guns to contain rust after even a short period of time. In Hardin’s fight with Maje it was stated that he used a .44 caliber 1860 Army model Colt. Hardin used a double-barreled shotgun on more than one occasion. The first time as previously mentioned was when he fought and killed three soldiers sent to arrest him. The second time he used a shotgun was when he killed Johnathan Jackson “Jack” Helms at a blacksmith’s shop near Union Valley, Texas in 1873. It has also been reported that John Wesley Hardin used a Navy Colt .36 caliber revolver when he killed deputy Jim Smalley. These handguns were all cap and ball revolvers which again was the norm of the period. He carried cartridge style guns at various times including when he was captured in Florida in late 1877. His cousins the Clements stated that John Wesley knew he was a hunted man and might need to rely on his firearm at any time. Like most of

Online auto seller Carvana received approval to build one of its growing slate of 75-foot-high car “vending machine” towers in the San Diego suburb of Escondido, California, as the company grows its real estate presence at an otherwise tough time for automotive sales. Carvana obtained zoning and other clearances from the Escondido City Council to build its third California retail site, where customers pick up used cars they’ve already purchased online by putting a metal coin into a slot at the base of an eight-story, glass-and-steel structure displaying and dispensing vehicles.

Carvana, based in Tempe, Arizona, currently has 25 of the automotive vending machines operating nationwide, each housing up to 32 vehicles. It has an additional 153 locations of its inspection, reconditioning and processing centers, often established in leased retail and industrial spaces, where it prepares and ships incoming used vehicles for eventual sale online, according to its website.

the more famous and successful gunmen from that era he reloaded his cap and ball pistols each day. This was a process to help guarantee that no rust, corrosion, or damp powder would keep the gun from firing. He was a firm believer in the old saying, “keep your powder dry” because his life might very well depend on it. Another key component of Hardin’s prowess as a gunfighter was his marksmanship. He was both quick and extremely accurate, much more so than the average cowhand. Hardin was blessed with inherent physical qualities including magnificent hand eye coordination and an almost uncanny ability to hit his target, dead on! Last but not least was his calmness even in the face of grave danger, a characteristic particularly important to a gunfighter. Shortly after his departure from Abilene to avoid being arrested by Wild Bill Hickok John Wesley Hardin engaged in a gunfight back in Nopal, Texas with two Texas State Police officers named Green Paramore and John Lackey. In the gun battle Hardin killed Paramore and wounded Lackey. Authorities from Austin, Texas shortly thereafter sent a posse to arrest John Wesley, but he ambushed the posse killing three of them in the fight. His next encounter was with two Mexicans just outside Corpus Christi, Texas. Hardin killed one shooting him from his horse and the other Mexican escaped injury by running away. At this point in time around the summer of 1872 it seemed John Wesley was in a gunfight almost everywhere he went. Some say it was his notoriety as a wanted man for murder. Others say Hardin was not a man to cross because more often than not the other person(s) ended up dead or severely wounded. John Wesley Hardin took up with a young woman in 1872 named Jane Bowen who he eventually married. Hardin and Jane’s brother Robert Bowen were both rustling cattle in Gonzales County, Texas. John Wesley’s cousins the Dixons were allies of the Taylors who were in a feud with the Sutton clan. Hardin was shot with a shotgun by Phil Sublett at the Gates Saloon in Trinity, Texas. Sublett had lost to John Wesley in a poker game and was angry about it. The shotgun blast punctured Hardin’s kidney and for a while it looked like a lifethreatening injury. In an odd turn of events Hardin surrendered on his sick bed to Cherokee County, Texas Sheriff Richard B. Regan to be tried for past crimes and start over. During his incarceration, a nervous deputy inadvertently shot John Wesley in the right knee. However, when John Wesley Hardin learned how many murders, he would be tried for committing he quickly decided to escape. One of Hardin’s cousins from the Dixon clan helped him escape by smuggling a file into the jail. In November of 1872 John Wesley escaped the county jail at Gonzales, Texas despite there being

Page 5 • • November 5, 2020

six guards on duty at that time.

During the Sutton-Taylor feud Hardin killed two lawmen who were allies of the Sutton family. He then killed Deputy Sheriff J.B. Moran and later in the day he shot and killed County Sheriff Jack Helm. Next John Wesley helped his brother-in-law, Joshua Bowen, escape from the Gonzales County, Texas jail. Two men associated with the Suttons were gunned down in 1874 as they waited for a steamboat to leave the area because of the feud. Both John Wesley Hardin and his brother, Joseph Hardin, were involved in the killings along with Jim and Bill Taylor. Jim Taylor, Bud Dixon, and Hardin were all also involved in the killing of Brown County, Texas Deputy Sheriff Charlie Webb. Supposedly Hardin invited Webb to have a drink with him in the Comanche Saloon, but Webb pulled a gun when Hardin turned his back. John Wesley turned and fired killing the popular sheriff which resulted in a lynch mob looking for Hardin.

John Wesley Hardin’s wife, daughter, and parents were taken into protective custody, but his brother, Joseph and cousins Bud and Tom Dixon were arrested on outstanding warrants. The lynch mob broke into the jail and subsequently hanged Hardin’s brother Joseph and both of his cousins Tom and Bud Dixon. As part of the feud John Wesley killed two men on separate encounters who had trailed him to arrest or kill him. It was widely believed that John Wesley was responsible for the killing in Cuero, Texas of Marshal Reuben Brown, and his deputy Tom Freeman. Marshal Brown had arrested William Taylor taking him to Galveston, Texas for trial. Brown was supposedly the leader of a Sutton posse that was put together to capture or kill Hardin. During the next couple of years John Wesley went on several cattle drives. The area they traversed bringing cattle from Texas north was wild and filled with criminals. Hardin had several gunfights with Mexican rustlers as well as Indians who wanted to charge per head for traveling over “their land.” He was popular on the trail because the other cowhands knew of his skills as a gunfighter.

Joshua Bowen, Hardin’s brother-inlaw, sent a letter to his father detailing that John Wesley was hiding out under the assumed name James W. Swain on the Alabama-Florida border. The letter was intercepted by Jack Duncan one of the Texas Rangers assigned to the Hardin task force authorized by then Texas Governor Richard Hubbard who included a $4,000 reward offer. John Wesley was arrested and briefly held in Mobile, Alabama for using marked cards in a poker game, but authorities there knew him as James W. Swain. In 1877 John Wesley killed two of his father’s former slaves, Jake Menzel and Robert Borup, when they tried to capture him in Gainesville, Florida. Texas Ranger Sergeant John B. Armstrong lead a posse of rangers assigned to capture the outlaw and alleged murderer, John

Wesley Hardin. The rangers and some local policemen found Hardin on a train in Pensacola, Florida. It was reported that Hardin tried to draw his revolvers but got them caught in his suspenders. John Wesley was knocked unconscious and two of his friends were also arrested and a third friend named Mann was killed by Sergeant Armstrong. Hardin claimed that when he was captured the rangers only found his revolvers under his shirt and coat.

John Wesley Hardin was charged with the murder of Texas Deputy Sheriff Charlie Webb and was found guilty. In June of 1878 he was sentenced to serve 25 years in the Huntsville Prison for Webb’s murder. During his prison term John Wesley made several attempts to escape before finally accepting his sentence and adapting to prison life. While in Huntsville he was tried and convicted of the murder of J. B. Morgan which added a twoyear sentence to be served concurrently with his 25-year sentence. He was relatively well educated for his age and the time period, and his father’s influence eventually led him to become head of the Huntsville Prison Sunday school. He also studied law extensively while in prison, but he suffered from poor health at times from the kidney wound he had received from Phil Sublett. In 1883 the wound became severely reinfected which caused Hardin to be bed ridden for almost two years. While in prison his wife, Jane, died on November 6, 1892, but because of his prison sentence they had been estranged for many years. While in Huntsville John Wesley Hardin also wrote an autobiography titled “The Life of John Wesley Hardin As Written by Himself.” Many of his acquaintances stated that Hardin both made up stories and only told “half-truths” in his autobiography. Hardin was paroled from prison on February 17, 1894 after serving seventeen years of his twenty-five-year sentence. At the time of his release he was 40 years old and he returned to Gonzales, Texas. Later that same year in March he was pardoned by the governor, and shortly thereafter passed the Texas State bar exam receiving his license to practice law. A story that circulated about this time was that Hardin made a bet to shoot a box out from under a Mexican who was using it as a chair. He was successful with the shot, but the man died because of the fall. On January 9, 1895 John Wesley Hardin married Callie Lewis who was 15 years old at the time, he was 41 years old. The marriage did not last long, and he shortly moved to El Paso, Texas. As one would expect John Wesley

Hardin had enemies from past encounters as well as gunfighters who wanted to kill him so they could be as famous as him. Hardin took up with a prostitute who was arrested by El Paso Deputy Constable John Selman, Jr. for brandishing a gun in public. Nepotism existed in every vocation but was especially prevalent in law enforcement (e.g. the Earps and Mastersons). Angered by the arrest John Wesley beat Selman Jr. up and during the fight at one-point pistol whipped him. Selman Jr’s. father was Constable at that time but was also a former outlaw and gunman. On the afternoon of August 19, 1895 Constable Selman Sr. and John Wesley had an argument over the incident. Later that evening Hardin went to the Acme Saloon for his favorite pastimes of gambling and drinking. Sometime just before midnight Selman Sr. walked up behind John Wesley and shot him in the back of the head killing him instantly although he then fired three more slugs into him as he lay on the floor.

John Wesley Hardin was buried in the Concordia Cemetery in El Paso, Texas. Constable Selman Sr. was put on trial for the murder, but some accounts of the incident stated Hardin tried to pull his revolver. The result was a hung jury and Selman Sr. was released on bail pending a new trial. He would die in a gunfight with U.S. Marshal George Scarborough a short time later, on April 6, 1896. The two men argued over a poker game which eventually resulted in the gunfight. During his life John Wesley Hardin killed somewhere between 21 and 42 men in gun battles. He acknowledged killing 42 but others disputed the claim and put the total number near 21. Wherever the true number falls it is remarkable because he did that in such a short period of time. Without question John Wesley Hardin was the absolute greatest gunfighter of the old west. His autobiography was published posthumously by historian J. Marvin Hunter in 1925. Hunter was the founder and publisher of Frontier times magazine as well as owner of the Frontier Times

Museum. Some of John Wesley Hardin’s personal belongings have sold posthumously for large sums of money. His Elgin watch and Colt revolver that he carried at the time of his death sold at auction for $168,000. The gun itself was a present from Jim Miller for getting him acquitted of the killing of George “Bud” Frazer in El Paso. The gunfight between Miller and Frazer was interesting in that Miller had hidden a metal plate under his frock coat. Frazer shot first hitting Miller in the arm and again in the chest which did not penetrate the metal plate. Clint Eastwood used the same trick in the movie “For A Few Dollars More” with the same outcome as Miller. Another of John Wesley’s guns a .41 caliber Colt Thunderer revolver sold at auction for $100,000. Other items sold at various times include a deck of cards, one of his law office business cards, and the bullet that killed him. On the popular reality TV show “Pawn Stars” the owner Ric Harrison bought one of Hardin’s business cards. Somewhat ironically in 1995 a group of Hardin’s great-grandchildren obtained a disinterment permit to move his body to Nixon, Texas to be close to his first wife Jane. Jane never divorced John Wesley and died while still married to him. Because of the tourist revenue generated by his grave the town of El Paso obtained a court order stopping the removal. As one would expect a lawsuit ensued and the court ruling was in favor of El Paso. I want to dedicate this story to my maternal great-grandmother, Hattie May Hardin (Byrd) who had a wonderful relationship with my mother. It was always my belief that this relationship was the foundation for the special bond between my mother and all her grandchildren. Some Hardins were incredibly special people!

Small Business Needs Our Help

California’s small businesses employ over 7 million people, and make up 95% of all businesses in this region. Most employ less than 100 workers, and businesses with 4 employees or less comprise 65% of the total, like our neighborhood grocery or restaurant. The problems I encountered running my small retail business are what first led me to run for public office. Before the pandemic, business in California was booming. Now small businesses are suffering. Many have shut down, completely or partially, and thousands of workers have lost their jobs.

This session the Legislature adopted measures aimed at supporting businesses and helping workers keep their jobs. For example, I was proud to support SB 1447, which provides tax credits for businesses that hire new employees. But we need to do more. Going forward, we must look at unnecessary rules and regulations that don’t impact health and safety. We should consider ways to shield businesses from lawsuits over COVID-19 exposure, and provide a sales tax holiday so that businesses can lure back customers. The last thing we should be considering is increasing taxes on small businesses as they struggle to stay afloat. Since joining the legislature, I have consistently supported repeal of unnec-

essary, burdensome regulations and opposed tax increases that would negatively impact business formation, worker retention and job growth. That’s one reason the National Federation of Independent Businesses recognized me as a “Guardian of Small Business” last year. The pandemic’s economic fallout has been catastrophic for many small businesses. With that in mind, next session I will be looking at policies that support our small businesses, create more jobs and help restore California to its historic place as the economic engine that drives the national economy. Assembly Republican Leader Marie Waldron, R-Escondido, represents the 75th Assembly District in the California Legislature, which includes the communities of Bonsall, Escondido, Fallbrook, Hidden Meadows, Pala, Palomar Mountain, Pauma Valley, Rainbow, San Marcos, Temecula, Valley Center and Vista.

The Real Toll of the COVID-19 Response

Every COVID-19 death is a tragedy and while we continue to fight this virus, we may never know the real number of deaths when it comes to this disease.

According to the U.S. Census Bureau as of July, more than 44 percent of Californians reported levels of anxiety and depression. Over 71 percent of Californians between the age of 18 and 29 reported feeling down, depressed or hopeless. The reality is a significant portion of the population is suffering, not from Coronavirus, but from the mandated response. The rising unemployment rate, coupled with the extended lockdowns is creating a major problem, that must be addressed. In the United Kingdom, which experienced the COVID-19 wave and response before the United States, 50,000 children have had surgery postponed, one in five people reported feeling depressed and 15,000 more people died at their home during the pandemic because they didn’t have proper healthcare or because they worried about going to the hospital.

These are difficult conversations to have, but we must start having them before we lose more people to insufficient care, suicide and drug overdoses. We can’t deal with speculation; we must focus on the facts. The facts are, people are suffering due to lockdowns. Meanwhile, the State of California continues to deal with fictitious predictions. Last month, during his weekly press conference, California Health Secretary, Dr. Mark Ghaly said the state could see an increase of 89% in COVID-19 hospitalizations. Instead, hospitalizations have dropped in California over the last month. The politicians in Sacramento need to stop scaring the public with wild predictions and instead start dealing with the realities. We have a mental health crisis, fueled by lockdowns and an economic crisis, that must be dealt with before it’s too late.

Letters to the Editor Cont. from Page 4

back in early 2019. Joe is a 20 year Escondido resident, police chaplain, the Vice Chair of the Planning Commission, and a church pastor. Garcia also happens to be the ONLY Republican running for the seat, facing off against three liberal Democrats on Election Day next week. He is endorsed by the Escondido Police Officers' Association, and is the current favorite to win the race. Editor’s Note: Every single source we contacted concerning Pastor Garcia confirmed that he is a fine human being, a great person, and good friend. But even his biggest boosters expressed their concern at the Pastor’s lack of legislative and governmental experience and not having won an elective office to date. Ultimately, it came down to Dara Czerwonka and Don Greene as the two candidates who had legislative experience, administrative experience and/or who had run for and won elected office. Both offered strong points to consider, which we did, and tried to do so fairly. Perhaps equally perplexing is the fact that despite endorsing Republicans almost entirely up and down the ballot, The Paper opted to endorse a Democrat for the Escondido City Council, District 3 race, instead of Joe Garcia. /s/ Roark Shanley, San Diego County.

Editor’s Note: If you follow The Paper you surely must be aware by now that we endorse the individual we feel is the best candidate for the office . . not whether they are Republican or Democrat. For years we endorsed Olga Diaz in her runs for council and the mayor’s chair. Olga has been, and continues to be, closely identified with the Democratic Pary and acknwledges that she is a Liberal. We chose to not endorse her for her Supervisorial race.  Had nothing to do with her party.

All Liberals are not bad guys just as all Conservatives are not good guys. We look at the candidate(s) and decide who we feel is best suited for the elcted position they seek. In this instance, Dara Czerwonka earned our endorsement. Thank you for your Letter to the Editor. You keep reading and we’ll keep writing! A Real Fan

Historically Speaking by Tom Morrow

After closing time at the bar, a drunk was proudly showing off his new apartment to a couple of his friends. He led the way to his bedroom where there was a big brass gong and a mallet. 'What's up with the big brass gong?' one of the guests asked.

'It's not a gong. It's a talking clock,' the drunk replied. 'A talking clock? Seriously?' asked his astonished friend. 'Yup,' replied the drunk.

'How's it work?' the friend asked, squinting at it.

'Watch,' the drunk replied. He picked up the mallet, gave the gong an ear-shattering pound and stepped back..

The three stood looking at one another for a moment....... Suddenly, someone on the other side of the wall screamed, 'You idiot! It's three-fifteen in the morning!" •••• Being popular on Facebook is like sitting at the cool table at the cafeteria in a Mental Hospital. •••• I'm really tired this morning.

Our Leaders Who Made a Difference

There are a handful of Presidents of the 20th century students of history and civics should get to know in understanding what made America the dominant global nation it is today.

For the most part, today’s young people (those under 40) pay little attention to our history and take for granted America’s position in the world. It was no accident how we got here and understanding how our republic works (civics 101) is central.

While today’s President Donald Trump is an easy target for his bombastic style, his isn’t that much different than was Theodore “Teddy” Roosevelt, an early 20th century president who found himself in the Oval Office due to the assassination of President William McKinley. His opponent, former Vice President Joe Biden, could be likened to “Silent” Calvin Coolidge, who didn’t talk much … or like William McKinley, who conducted his entire campaign from his front porch.

A visiting Pastor was attending a Men's breakfast in an Ohio farm county. He asked one of the impressive older farmers in attendance to say Grace that morning. After all were seated the older farmer began....."Lord, I hate buttermilk."

The Pastor opened one eye and wondered to himself where this was going. The farmer loudly proclaimed, "Lord, I hate lard". Now the Pastor was overly worried. However, without missing a beat, the farmer prayed on,"And, Lord you know how much I hate raw, white flour".

Just as the Pastor was about to stand and stop everything, the farmer continued, "But Lord, when you mix 'em all together and bake 'em up…I do love fresh biscuits".

So Lord, when things come up that we don't like, when life gets hard, when we just don't understand what you are sayin' to us, we just need to relax and wait 'till You are done mixin', and probably it will be

Roosevelt, a Republican, believed in a strong Navy. He had the U.S. Navy’s pre-World War I battleships of the “Great White Fleet” circle the globe showing off our growing power. “T.R.” believed in a “Big Stick” policy … as in … “walk softly but carry a big stick.” “T.R.” oversaw the momentous building of the Panama Canal, opening the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific, cutting in half the time needed to go from ocean to ocean without traveling around South American horn.

How he got in the White House seat: In 1900, the Republicans ran “T.R.” for vice president to get rid of him. As governor of New York, he had been an irritating maverick to old-guard politicians. Their plan backfired when McKinley was assassinated. As president, “T.R.” created havoc on both sides of the aisle in government and business with a vast variety of needed reforms.

Herbert Hoover was a popular postWorld War I humanitarian, but he’s best remembered for being an ineffective president. Hoover was a complicated character, yet an important historical figure. After WWII, he was asked by then-President Harry Truman to organize the feeding of millions of Europeans left homeless and starving after World War II. While he failed as a president, Hoover’s greatest accomplishment was being that of humanitarian. After WWI, he had organized the feeding of Europe, and again after WWII, still, Hoover gets the brunt of the blame for the Great Depression, the worst economic disaster in world history. During his presidency Truman suggested that “Mr. Hoover didn’t cause the Depression, it was created for him.” Arguably, Franklin D. Roosevelt has been called America’s greatest president. He served more than 12 years, guiding the nation through the dark years of the 1930s Depression and into the last five years of World War II. Dozens of books have been written on “FDR,” making his presidency a pivotal time in the century.

However, probably one of our best presidents was Truman, whom we talked about recently. Known among detractors as “His Accidency.” he became president when Roosevelt died a few weeks into his fourth term. Truman moved into the White House and became the only high school graduate of the century to become president. Ironically, “FDR” never had confided in Truman about the atomic bomb. He was told about the highly-secret $2 billion World War II project after assuming office. Truman had to make the decision to drop the two devastating bombs on Japan. It was his most momentous, (and one of the century’s most important) decisions any head-of-state ever made. An estimated half-million U.S. troops and as many as 1.5 million Japanese were saved from death that, if the war continued, surely would have occurred in assaulting the main island of Japan.

Some five years after WWII, the so-called “Cold War” began and lasted for more than 40 years until Ronald Reagan built up American armed forces to the point it caused the Soviet Union to go broke trying to keep up. The accomplishments of presidents Dwight D. Eisenhower and John F. Kennedy led us through the turbulent 50s and into the 60s. It was “Ike” who was the architect of our Interstate highway system, and Kennedy who launched us to the moon with our space program. Kennedy and his vice president, Lyndon Johnson, changed America with their quest for meaningful civil rights.

For those of the younger generations who are bored with or lacking in knowledge of history and a basic understanding of American civics, may I suggest they study the aforementioned presidents. It might help whet your appetite for the necessary ingredients to being a knowledgeable and informed citizen. A quick study of the “electoral” college for this week’s presidential election will, no doubt, be helpful in understanding it isn’t always who gets the most popular votes, but more than 270 or more “electoral” votes … just ask Al Gore or Hillary Clinton.

Protect Your Family from Longterm Care Costs

Like everyone, you want to remain physically and financially independent throughout your life. But if you lose some of this freedom, the last thing you’d want is to become a burden on your family. How can you keep this from happening? First of all, you need to be aware of the risk. Someone turning 65 today has almost a 70 percent chance of eventually needing some type of long-term care, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Of course, this doesn’t necessarily mean that you face that 70 percent likelihood. In reality, you have either a zero percent chance of requiring long-term care (you’ll never need it) or a 100 percent chance (you’ll definitely need it).

Nonetheless, if you think you’ve got that zero percent chance, you’re taking a gamble – and it could be a big one, because long-term care is expensive. The median annual cost for a private room in a nursing

Furthermore, you can’t count on Medicare paying all these costs – in fact, it would probably only cover a small portion of a nursing home stay and provide limited assistance for home health care. So, if you were financially unprepared for the expense of long-term care, the burden might fall on your loved ones. This could be a big financial challenge, in two ways.

First, if a family member had to become your caregiver, this individual might have to abandon a career, or at least substantially reduce their working hours. Not only would this result in a loss of income, but it could also lower the amounts that could be contributed to a 401(k) or similar employer-sponsored retirement plan. Second, if your family members couldn’t leave their jobs or cut back on their hours, or they were simply unable to provide the type of longterm care you need, they might be forced to pay for a nursing home stay or home health care worker out of pocket. To avoid these outcomes, you have a couple of options:

Self-insure – You could conceivably “self-insure” against the costs of long-term care by devoting a portion of your investment portfolio specifically to this purpose. However, if at some point you require admission to a nursing home, it may require a significant commitment of your resources. Purchase protection – Over the past decade or so, there’s been an increase in the types of long-term care protection vehicles available. These instruments vary widely in cost and in what they cover, but by choosing a protection option, you may greatly lower the financial risk you might face. By consulting with a financial professional, you should be able to find an arrangement that’s appropriate for your situation. Preserving your financial independence and helping protect that of

your family should be a key financial goal. And you can make progress toward accomplishing this by recognizing the potential cost of long-term care and taking steps to deal with it.

Carvana touts a touchless, online business model that it says now works especially well during a pandemic era in which people are limiting on-site trips to auto dealerships and other types of retail establishments. “Suddenly, buying cars online is becoming normalized,” CEO Ernest Garcia told analysts during a second-quarter earnings call. “This is a big deal.”

Jo Ryan, senior project manager for retail development at Carvana, told the Escondido council that the company operates the automotive vending machines in the Southern California cities of Westminster and Ontario, employing a total of 350, and has another planned for an undisclosed location in the San Francisco Bay Area. The suburban San Diego location is expected to open in 2022 and employ 20. “We’ve been looking at San Diego for a long time,” said Bret Sassenberg, Carvana’s senior director of real estate and development, during the council meeting.

The Escondido vending tower is planned for an industrial site at Hale Avenue and Tulip Street near Interstate 15, the former location of a meat-packing plant that burned down in 2016 and became a local eyesore before it was subsequently razed.

“It would be a nice icon for Escondido from the freeway perspective,” Councilman Michael Morasco said of the Carvana project. “I like the idea of the 20-plus full-time employees plus the tax revenues it brings to the city.” Carvana and city officials project that the Escondido location will generate $11 million in new sales

taxes for the city during its first 10 years of operation. The coronavirus pandemic has impacted many U.S. cities that traditionally rely on auto sales for a large proportion of tax revenues that support public services. Carvana’s California expansion comes as dealers in the state saw used-vehicle sales by unit count drop 14.5% and new-vehicle sales decline 26.9% from a year earlier in the first half of 2020, according to the Sacramentobased California New Car Dealers Association.

The trade group expects California to finish 2020 with new vehicle sales totaling 1.63 million units, down 22% from 2019, before picking up next year to exceed 1.8 million units.

“We are just beginning to find our way out with the hope that the worst is behind us,” association Chairman Mark Mormandin said in a statement. “We see the results of pent-up consumer demand but are trying to balance that with low inventory.”

Founded in 2012, Carvana last month reported a 25% increase from a year earlier in unit sales of used cars for its second quarter ended June 30, topping 55,000 units as total revenue rose 13% to more than $1.1 billion.

Chief Financial Officer Mark Jenkins told analysts on the company's earnings call a key challenge moving forward will be boosting the company’s capacity to take in and process vehicles for eventual sale online and distribution through the vending machines. That will probably include boosting locations of its non-consumer-facing inspection and reconditioning centers.

Now that the hype and uncertainty of the election is over, we can get back to the business of living. The election, as well as Covid 19, have created unbelievable turmoil for all of us. Naturally, “nothing will ever be the same, only different,” as a Jewish Rabbi friend of mine said. Of greater significance this month, is the celebration of Veterans Day Nov. 11, formerly known as Armistice Day, which marked the end of WW1 in 1918. It was to honor those who died in that war and, since June 1, 1954, all who have served our country in uniform. That tradition continues today.

Without the military and willingness to serve in the defense of our freedoms of elections, speech, press, and religion, we would live under the tyranny of despots. The

They, together as cooks, pilots, doctors, nurses, chaplains, corpsman and a host of other tasked personnel worked as one force with the warriors to protect and defend our freedoms. The millions, who have worn the uniform since our country’s founding, are the veterans we give God thanks for this month. Elections are important, but without the blood and sacrifices of our veterans there would be no elections. So let’s really celebrate with gratitude and humility on this Veterans Day! Pastor Huls

I think all of us would agree that elections can be a mess with lots of misinformation put out as gospel truth. And sometimes it’s tough to find out what is really true. But I would offer you two thoughts for consideration. No candidate is going to be perfect and no proposition will solve the entire problem. The reality is we are faced with complex problems that require difficult choices. And our elected leaders don’t come into office with divine insight. But even though we live in this imperfect world with imperfect processes, the good news is we have a chance to effect change in just two years. Thank you to all who participated in this election cycle.

Stay informed, Be Kind, Remember your neighbor, and Stay safe! Semper Fi,

somethin' even better than biscuits." Half of us are going to come out of this quarantine as amazing cooks. The other half will come out with a drinking problem. I used to spin that toilet paper like I was on Wheel of Fortune. Now I turn it like I'm cracking a safe. I need to practice social-distancing from the refrigerator. Still haven't decided where to go for Easter ----- The Living Room or The Bedroom

PSA: every few days try your jeans on just to make sure they fit. Pajamas will have you believe all is well in the kingdom. Homeschooling is going well. 2 students suspended for fighting and 1 teacher fired for drinking on the job.

I don't think anyone expected that when we changed the clocks we'd go from Standard Time Zone to the Twilight Zone

This morning I saw a neighbor talking to her cat. It was obvious she thought her cat understood her. I came into my house, told my dog..... we laughed a lot.

So, after this quarantine.....will the producers of My 600 Pound Life just find me, or do I find them? Quarantine Day 5: Went to this restaurant called THE KITCHEN. You have to gather all the ingredients and make your own meal. I have no clue how this place is still in business. My body has absorbed so much soap and disinfectant lately that when I pee, it cleans the toilet.

Day 5 of Homeschooling: One of these little monsters called in a bomb threat.

Vista • Mayor Judy Ritter

Honorin g Our Veterans

Veterans Day is an important day to remind us of those who served to keep our country free. On November 11, we pay tribute to the brave veterans who came before our troops currently serving. Additionally, we honor our current service members, especially those in Vista and across North County. We owe America’s veterans and those currently serving a depth of gratitude for the many sacrifices they have made for us. Their patriotism is an inspiration for all. As a City, we recognize our adopted Marine Unit HMLA 369 members, a helicopter squadron based out of Camp Pendleton. Thank you to those who have answered the call to serve our nation and to the local residents, businesses, and organizations who have donated in support of HMLA 369 throughout the years!

Big News! "The Winter Dance Party" Concert @ Pala Casino Resort & Spa Friday, Dec. 4, 2020 is sure to be a sell-out.

Tribute artists saluting Buddy Holly, Richie Valens and the legenday “Big Bopper,” all recreated on the Pala Entertainment stage.

Tickets are available for our concerts and events at the Pala Privileges Center, or by calling 1877-WIN-PALA and asking to be transferred to the Privileges Center. Our main concert areas are the Events Center and Starlight Theater.

While visiting Pala, you can purchase tickets at the Pala Box Office with no service charge. You may also purchase tickets for most shows at www.etix.com or by calling 1-800-514-3849.

that they exist and how they are ideally suited for some applications. An AIO sits on the table in front of Derek in the picture above. An AIO is a bit like a giant notebook PC in that it has all the critical functions built into a single unit. WiFi, webcam, DVD, RAM, CPU, Video, storage devices and 22-24 inch monitor are all integrated into the display that is no bigger than a standard LCD monitor. Wireless mouse /keyboard are standard. The AIO has only a single cord, the power cord. These powerful PCs are ideal for off-line and on-line

applications as well as Zooming and Skyping. Their large screens make them perfect for schoolwork and streaming video. In business environments they are ideal receptionist workstations and also perfect information streaming devices for waiting rooms. Here at TCF these Windows10 AIOs are typically priced between $350 and $450. If you need user files transferred from another PC it typically adds a $45 labor charge. The “Micro” pictured in Derek’s hands is truly a marvel of electronic technology. This four pound device has all the functions, bells and whistles of a modern desktop tower. There are no compromises. This Windows 10 “micro” has an i7 CPU with 8GB RAM, SSD, integrated video and WiFi. Its external ports include speaker /

headphone / microphone, (2) display ports, (4) USB, VGA and an Ethernet interface. One of our customers, the CEO of a North County City’s Chamber of Commerce, traded in a notebook PC for one of our “micros” and found that in working between home and the office, the faster, lighter more powerful and more portable “micro” was ideal. All that’s required is having a monitor and keyboard/mouse at each location. The AIOs are typically also in the $350 to $450 range. By the time The Paper hits the streets this week our elections will be in the rear view mirror. Half of you will be giddy with joy and the other half in a deep blue funk. Whatever the result, life goes on, so let’s try hard not to piss each other off by over-reacting. It is what it is and there is always a “next year.”

Only the Bold, the Best, and the Brightest, read The Paper

Editor’s Note: Recently, we received yet another note from a contented reader. He was in between trips but asked that we relay his thoughts and feelings to you, our reader.

He, too, has been a long time reader and claims the reason is because it makes him a more rounded person. He collects jokes from the Chuckles Column and is a hit at the parties he attends, usually after conquering a village or town . . . No wonder he is so bold!

First, I discovered America. Then, I discovered The Paper!

Ever since I can remember I’ve had the burning desire to discover new places, new adventures. Because of this, I set out to discover a new country . . . and I was successful. I even ventured inland a great many miles where I discovered a place I called Minnesota. “This,” I thought, “would be a great place for Scandinavians.” So I headed back to Norway to recruit settlers. While I was gone, some clown named Columbus claimed he discovered America. Life ain’t fair. Except life also gives us The Paper. I read it whenever and wherever I go exploring and only buy from those who

Letters to the Editor Cont. from Page 7

stories on our very own San Diego County by Friedrich Gomez. Secret places to visit and the other story on San Diego's hidden and mysterious history all kept us glued and in suspense. I never knew about these fascinating things! One of our dear friends wanted to know what language Friedrich Gomez used in last week's Letters to the Editor column (October 29, 2020)? My husband said it might be German but one of our close friends said it was not German. My daughter said it could be Flemish. My sister who resides in Boise, Idaho said it was Dutch (she reads The Paper online and just adores Friedrich Gomez, as we all do)! He's such a sweet and adorable young man.

Editor’s Note: Friedrich speaks, reads and writes fluent German. The German and Dutch language are very close and each speaker can often understand and speak with the other. Speaking of San Diego County history, the wonderful Social Butterfly, Evelyn Madison amazed us all about the King of England who once visited Valley Center! And also, Evelyn Madison's news and comments on "Hope for Kids" and

This year’s Scarecrow Contest was sponsored by businesses, families and individuals who donated to support Alta Vista Botanical Gardens and keep VISTA’S OWN Botanical Garden going and growing. Ads for these sponsors will be posted on the scarecrows all year. The Plant Sale included a variety of succulents from the AVBG GrowGetters, vegetables and flowering bedding plants donated by Progressive, and exciting indoor foliage greenery and fall color donated by UPG. Instead of asking for donated gift cards for Scarecrow Contest prizes, this year the gift cards were purchased by AVBG, to support local businesses that have always said YES to donating during the Garden’s 12 years of Festivals. "The AVBG Facebook page is www.fb.com/vistaavbg.

Hard times were made a bit easier for our community - we encouraged creativity and family time, we shared time outdoors in nature, and we supported local businesses. Membership in the Gardens has doubled during the last 7 months; our families appreciate the wideopen views, plantings, art, and water features. Come visit the Gardens - we’re open every day!

Evelyn Madison does so much to improve our lives in this world with such reports in her column to keep us aware so that we might help such charities, etc. God bless our nation, our American flag, our Christian values, our servicemen in the military, and our fundamental right to defend and honor our country which is still the best in the world.

and children's books to 10 locations of the Boys & Girls Clubs along the West Coast, to encourage the use of PPE in a child-friendly manner. The kits offer children a unique opportunity to make their own masks and the children's book, "Smiling from Ear to Ear," teaches younger children the importance of PPE. The DIY kids also offer a fashionable and sustainable alternative to disposable masks. This was at the Boys & Girls Club of San Marcos, 1 Positive Place, San Marcos 92069.
