Volume 52 - No. 31

By Friedrich Gomez

There is an amusing grandparent anecdote where grandpa and grandma stop by a roadside restaurant to enjoy lunch before continuing their journey to visit their grandkids. There at the lunch table grandma forgets her sunglasses, which she doesn’t remember until she and grandpa are back on the freeway. This causes grandpa to start fussing and complaining as he tries to find a place to turn back around. Grandpa’s complaining soon stops as they drive into the restaurant The Paper - 760.747.7119

parking lot. As they both get out of the car, grandpa mumbles to himself, “Well, I guess while I’m in there I might as well get my hat.”

The story always makes me chuckle. Everyone has fond, loving memories of their grandparents and for good reason – they often bring laughter and sunshine to an often dark world.

GRANDPARENT POPULATION ON THE RISE. Grandpas and grandmas are making big history right now. According to the New

York Times and U. S. Census Bureau, there are more grandparents in America than ever before. As a matter of fact, the grandparent population explosion in the U. S. has risen by 24 percent since the year 2001. And this year, in 2022, the ranks of grandparents is currently at a historic 77 millionstrong! GRANDPARENTS RAISING GRANDKIDS. There is little doubt that grandparents are often indispensable, even life-saving elements in our lives. Their values

and teachings often affect us throughout our respective lifetimes; their wisdom even shapes us for the better and helps us find our true selves and our rightful place in the world we live. You are never truly alone, when you have grandma and grandpa to guide you.

That grandparents play an integral part of our lives is not just a fanciful exercise in sentiment and nostalgia – it’s just plain fact.

Because more and more grandparents are raising their grandchildren in America today, and this means that grandparents are, literally, helping to shape our future world. Today, grandparents (by themselves) are raising over 12 million of their own grandchildren!

GRANDPARENT POVERTY LEVEL. Yes, more grandparents than ever before are raising their grandchildren, but, the sad part of this ledger is that 1 out of 5 grandpas and grandmas that are rearing their grandchildren have incomes that fall well below the poverty level. In other words, for what little they have in money, grandparents often step-in to rear their grandchildren at a great financial sacrifice to themselves. Despite their own struggles to make ends meet, financially speaking, grandparents are often there when their grandchildren are abandoned by their true parents. As such, grandfathers and grandmothers are not only true treasures in life, they are sometimes the last best hope we have for survival.

by their grandparents. This list includes former U. S. President, Barack Obama, who said of his grandmother who passed away on the eve of his election day, “And while she’s no longer with us, I know my grandmother is watching, along with the family that made me who I am.” Also, former president Bill Clinton’s own grandparents took over his care when his father died in a car crash.

Under the tutelage of his grandparents, a young Bill Clinton discovered an early love of education and by the age of 3, he was already counting and reading. “My grandparents had a lot to do with my early commitment to learning,” Clinton has often said.

Little did these grandparents know at the time, that they were shaping destiny at the potter’s wheel, that they were raising future leaders of America!

FAMOUS PEOPLE REARED BY GRANDPARENTS. There is a lengthy list of famous individuals who were raised by their grandparents, such as with the mighty literary giant, Maya Angelou (19282014), Pulitzer Prize nominee and recipient of dozens of awards and over 50 honorary degrees. The celebrated writer/poet who was abandoned by her parents and raised by her grandmother, said: “I loved

In 1993, Angelou recited her poem “On the Pulse of Morning” at President Bill Clinton’s inauguration, the first poet since Robert Frost to recite a poem at a presidential inauguration. Some names and stories of famous people who were reared by their grandparents may well surprise, or perhaps even shock you, in realising just how valuable America’s population of grandpas and grandmas truly are.

Let’s see if you can correctly guess the names of prominent individuals who were reared by their grandparents. WHICH PERSON BELOW WAS REARED BY A GRANDPARENT? A. Melanie Trump B. Oprah Winfrey C. Hillary Clinton

the Midwest in search of employment, little Oprah remained on a Mississippi farm where she was raised by her beloved grandmother, Hattie Mae Lee. There she stayed until age 6 until her grandma fell ill and Oprah had to be sent to Milwaukee to be with her mother. But, it was Oprah’s grandmother who left a life-saving foundation: “It is the reason why I am where I am today because my grandmother gave me the foundation for success that I was allowed to continue to build upon.” It was during Oprah Winfrey’s most formative and impressionable years that she grew to what she is today: “My grandmother taught me to read, and that opened the door to all kinds of possibilities for me. And had I not been with my grandmother . . . I probably would not have had the foundation that I had.”

nation, Carol Burnett lived a most unhappy, traumatic upbringing. Both of her parents were alcoholics who were completely unfit to raise her. After her parents divorced, little Carol moved in with her grandmother, Mabel Eudora White, whom she affectionately called “Nanny.” They lived in a boarding house near Burnett’s mother, in a very poor section of Hollywood, California.

Every week, Carol Burnett’s grandma would somehow save up enough money for them to go to the movies together. It was there, sitting in a dark theatre with her Nanny where that little girl, Carol Burnett, discovered her love of entertainment.

In time, Burnett would emerge as one of Hollywood’s greatest and most cherished comedy legends of all-time! But, she never forgot her Nanny.

Carol Burnett developed a special secret code of tugging at her ear lobe at the end of every televised Carol Burnett Show. The famous tugging of her left ear was Carol’s gesture to her grandma watching at home that meant: “All is well, I love you.”

The great comedy star, Carol Burnett, never let herself forget the grandma that barely had enough money to take her to the movies each and every week. Little did her Nanny know at the time that her little giggling grandchild seated by her side would, someday, grow up to become one of history’s mightiest purveyors of laughter and joy. All thanks to grandma, of course.

When Carol Burnett’s grandmother died, a part of Carol went with her. In an episode titled, “Intimate Portrait,” Carol Burnett tearfully recalled how she held her beloved grandmother’s hand in the final moments in the hospital. Burnett simply ended her sentence with, “And then she squeezed my hand – and died.”

Despite her beloved Nanny’s death – who was the pivotal life force that raised her from a small little girl – Carol would continue a special connection with her grandmother. Even after her grandmother had passed away, during the run of The Carol Burnett Show, Carol continued the tradition of ending each program by looking into the camera lens and tugging her ear.

She still wanted to tell her grandma that all was well, and that she still loved her. WHICH ACTOR BELOW WAS REARED BY GRANDPARENTS? A. Jack Nicholson B. Clint Eastwood

The Road to Oz is in Valley Center: The road to "Oz" is in North County. The community of Valley Center might seem like an unusual place to find connections to "The Wizard of Oz," but the local History Museum is exhibiting documents and photos with links to the rural town. Unknown to most, there were two movie versions of the film, both of which have Valley Center connections. In 1925, local resident Sam Zimbalist, a longtime MGM producer, edited the first film. The better-known 1939 version featured local resident Jack Haley as the Tin Man. An then unknown actor named Oliver Hardy was the Tin Man in 1925. Valley Center also has an area often referred to as the Wizard of Oz neighborhood in which streets carry such names as The Yellow Brick Road, Wizard Way, Dorothy Lane and Emerald City Drive.

If you guessed Jack Nicolson, you’re right!

In the case of movie actor, Jack Nicholson, there were some pretty unusual circumstances in his upbringing. One might even say bizarre. Nicholson was reared by both grandparents but he always thought they were, literally, his parents – a secret that was hid from him until he was 37 years old!

In 1974, during the premiere of Jack Nicholson’s movie, Chinatown, Time Magazine decided to do a cover story on the popular actor. The magazine’s researchers uncovered the fact that Nicholson’s ‘mom’ and ‘dad’ were in reality, his grandma and grandpa!

Nicholson received a call from the Time Magazine staff asking him to verify their findings of his ‘parents’ actually being his grandparents. Since Nicholson was completely unaware of the true identity of his grandparents, he flatly denied the ‘rumour.’ Adding to the rumour was Time Magazine’s allegation that not only were Jack Nicholson’s ‘parents’ really his grandparents but, also, the bombshell allegation that his ‘sister,’ June, was in fact not his sister at all – but, his biological mother! When Time Magazine first asked Jack Nicholson these deeply personal questions in 1974, Nicholson was already 37 years old and his

‘sister,’ June, (his actual mother) had already passed away back in 1963.

Although the actor was completely unaware of these facts at the time, he was sufficiently bothered and curious enough from Time Magazine’s queries to make a call of his own. Jack Nicholson called the husband of his other ‘sister,’ Lorraine, (which in truth was his aunt) to ask pertinent questions on his upbringing. Jack’s surviving ‘sister,’ Lorraine, knew the real truth, and finally broke the incredible news to actor Jack Nicholson. The tale of the tape was finally made clear: Jack’s ‘mom’ and ‘dad’ were, truthfully, his grandparents. Jack’s ‘sister’ named June, was in fact his mother, making his other surviving ‘sister,’ Lorraine, his true aunt! But, why the charade in the first place?

The reason for the fabrication was that Jack Nicholson’s real mother, June, had become pregnant with Jack when she was only 16 (some sources say 18) and being unmarried at the time as well as unable to responsibly raise him alone, she gave him over to her parents to rear. Jack’s grandparents agreed to raise Jack as a son, pretending to be hisreal parents, so that his mother

Mercury Insurance illegally steered ‘good drivers’ toward higher-priced policies, Department alleges in major legal action

Insurance Commissioner Ricardo Lara announced a major legal action against Mercury Insurance for violating consumer protection laws, including by selling Mercury’s highest-priced policy to “good drivers” instead of the lowest-priced policy for which good drivers qualify. This legal enforcement action comes after a Department investigation found numerous areas where Mercury’s business practices harmed policyholders across its private passenger auto, homeowners, commercial auto, and commercial multi-policy lines of insurance. By passing Proposition 103 in 1988, California voters mandated a 20 percent “good driver discount” for consumers who maintain a safe driving record. The Department’s investigation found that Mercury attempted to evade the requirements of Proposition 103 by steering good drivers into a higher-priced plan.

“Failing to sell good drivers the lowest priced policy for which they qualify is illegal, and my Department will act on behalf of consumers and pursue the maximum penalties against Mercury for acting in bad faith,” said Insurance Commissioner Ricardo Lara. “My message to Mercury and other insurance companies that try to evade the law is clear: unfair and illegal practices will not be tolerated and I will fight to ensure consumers get the discounts they are entitled to under the law.”

The allegations – 34 in all – are detailed in the Department’s Notice of

Non-Compliance.

This action comes after Mercury previously paid a $27.6 million fine in August 2019 that was levied by the Department of Insurance, the largest fine against a property and casualty insurer in Department history. The California Supreme Court upheld the Department’s action finding Mercury charged consumers unapproved and unfairly discriminatory rates. Like that case, the Department’s latest legal action against Mercury also alleges numerous violations of Proposition 103, passed by the voters in 1988 to allow the Insurance Commissioner to protect consumers from excessive and unfairly discriminatory rates. Woman With Bomb, Outstanding Warrant Arrested After Traffic Stop

Melissa Vasquez, who faces multiple felony counts, was pulled over in Escondido Monday night. Officers took a 35-year-old woman into custody in North County on Monday night after they said they found an explosive device in her car.

Melissa Vasquez, who had an outstanding warrant and was riding in her gray Chevy by herself, was pulled over by Escondido Police at about 8:50 p.m. near the Jack in the Box in the 200 block of Felicita Avenue, investigators said. After she was taken into custody, police found the "small explosive" under her seat and called out the bomb squad, who disabled the device, which police said "was capable of releasing shrapnel."

Vasquez, who is being held at the Vista Detention Facility, is not eligible for bail. She faces two felony charges —

Since being elected Mayor in 2018, Rebecca has prioritized public safety, promoted clean streets and parks, and ensured financial responsibility. San Marcos now enjoys the lowest crime rate in the city’s history, new parks and improved infrastructure, and a balanced budget.

Rebecca is dedicated to maintaining safe neighborhoods and schools for all. Recognized by the Red Ribbon Commission in 2016 with the Excellence in Prevention Advocacy Award, she effectively championed the creation of ordinances to restrict tobacco sales to San Marcos youth. She also led efforts to prevent the sale of dangerous drugs like Spice and Bath Salts in San Marcos. Additionally, under Rebecca’s leadership, the San Marcos Fire Department has achieved a Class One Public Safety Rating. Ensuring our homes and businesses are safe from the threat of fire is one of her top priorities! Since Rebecca began serving as Mayor, the city has built or rebuilt 10 parks, including a Purple Heart monument and trail that honors our

Letters to the Editor The Fentanyl Story

Dear Mr. Lyle E. Davis, I loved your Fentanyl news coverage story (8/4/22 issue of The Paper)!

Titled "Cops Ain't Supposed to Cry," it was the most powerful and brilliant news reporting I've ever seen on t.v. or any newspaper -- by far! The U. S. media is supposed to educate us and raise awareness, but often they bore us to tears with poor communication skills and the over-burden "dead hand of research." Mr. Davis, you are not only a great publisher, editor, and founder of The Paper, but you're a most gifted writer who invigorates and "brings to life" important social issues in a way that deeply touches us and even brings tears to our eyes! Also,

congratulations

could continue her promising dancing career without inviting scandal at the time. This family secret was hidden from Jack Nicholson until he uncovered his real parentage during his late 30s. To this day, Jack Nicholson’s biological father remains a mystery, though there have been several unconfirmed guesses. Nicholson, himself, says he does not know nor does he care to ever find out who his real father was.

While on a location film-shoot in Mexico, Jack received a call that his ‘sister’ June had just passed away. He never knew, at the time, that he was once talking and holding his mother in his arms for the final time. When he last saw her alive at the hospital, the truth was one-sided: He looked lovingly at his ‘sister,’ while her eyes were secretly seeing her son for the last time. Today, in 2022, the now 85-yearold actor Jack Nicholson – the most nominated male actor in the history of the Academy Awards – has never played a movie role that was more surprising and dramatic than his real-life upbringing! WHY GRANDPARENT POPULATION IS NOW AT ITS HIGHEST IN HISTORY. One reason for the grandparent explosion is that more people are becoming grandmas and grandpas at much younger ages now. Of all adults age 30 and older, 37 percent are grandparents. GRANDPARENT HUMOR IN OUR LIVES. Grandparents can often be the most fun to be with, especially as babysitters. A famous comic once said no one, not even mom or dad, are smarter than grandpa and grandma. That’s because mom and dad were raised and taught by them. And as one humourist recounted, grandparents can still trick our parents.

He cites the following humorous anecdote which never fails to make his audiences howl with laughter: A little boy accompanies both his grandparents on their doctor’s appointment. In the follow-up hearing test, the doctor said both grandparents still had perfectly normal hearing because of their new hearing aids. “I’ll bet your family is happy to hear about your perfect hearing,” the doctor asked them. That’s when grandpa said, “Oh, we haven’t told them, yet. We both just sit around and listen to the conversations. I’ve changed my will three times, already!”

OUR LAST BEST HOPE. It doesn’t really matter if the storyline is apocryphal or not. The gist of it all is, that grandpa and grandma are truly indispensable in bringing laughter and joy into our lives. Also, in the bright sunlight of truth, grandparents often hold the nucleus of our great country – the fami-

Seems major remodeling is needed and it was felt that the construction crews working within the dental clinic would be distracting to the dental clinic’s patients. San Marcos Dental Clinic takes great pride in ensuring their patients have a relaxing visit whenever treated so they decided it was best to close the clinic until the end of August or early Sepetermer. As soon as construction is completed and the San Marcos Dental Clinic is once again open and welcoming back dental patients we will be sure to let you know. We are regular patients there, too. Love all the dentists and staff!

More work to do

We’re in the last month of a two-year legislative session. During August, we’ll be voting on approximately 1,200 bills, over 500 in the Assembly and about 700 in the Senate.

These include my AB 2768, which addresses the critical shortage of psychiatric beds by leading to the development of a real-time, internet-based app providing information on available beds/facilities to serve mentally ill patients in emergency rooms and in ambulance transport. With 31 counties reporting a shortage of behavioral healthcare workers, I joined Senator Scott Weiner as co-author of SB 964 to deal with the shortage through increased funding and enhanced UC degree programs. Other bills I support include AB 2617 that encourages more dual enrollment programs for high school students, increasing graduation rates and reducing costs for students. I also support AB 2705 requiring more robust wildfire protection for future master planned communities without undermining current projects or housing construction. Another bill, SB 717 will identify hurdles to broadband access, and reduce regulatory and permitting barriers preventing wireless services from expansion or upgrades.

and federal laws/protections that already mandate safe workplaces, and subjects employers to lawsuits if they replace absent workers. Finally, despite bi-partisan efforts by the Problem Solvers Caucus, there will be no suspension of the gas tax and don't expect any rebate for California seniors who rely solely on their Social Security benefits to survive these out-of-control inflationary times. Critical issues like these often fly under the public’s radar. For better or worse, there is much more work to do before session ends August 31st.

We Must Meet Basic Needs

Water, food, shelter, these are basic needs for people to live. But in the modern world, there’s a fourth item for that list – electrical power. Technology runs almost everything, and most technology requires power. Medical devices, communication devices and connection to the rest of the world, has become reliant on power. Thanks to amazing technological advancements, some vehicles no longer need gasoline, but they still need electricity. But, we now face the reality that supply of electricity is not keeping up with demand, for a variety of reasons. Power outages like we have not seen in the past are expected, and moving forward into the future, until supply can meet and exceed the increasing demand. As I mentioned a few weeks ago, the North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) has warned that two-thirds of the U.S. could experience blackouts this summer. Last week, the Wall Street Journal published a piece titled, “America’s New Energy Crisis” in which it outlined how we’ve gotten into this situation. One part stood out to me from the article, ‘As U.S. power supplies tighten, developers are struggling to build these proj-

ects quickly enough to offset closures of older plants, in part because of supply-chain snarls. Another reason: It takes longer to approve their connections to the existing electricity grid. Such new requests neared 3,500 last year compared with roughly 1,000. Typical time needed to complete technical studies needed for that grid approval is now more than three years, up from less than two in 2015.’ I’m all in favor of green energy, but we must do it while balancing our future needs with our current needs. I’m going to try and work with our state officials to speed up the approval time and keep some of our older technologies online until they are no longer needed. A crisis is brewing as electricity rates skyrocket and power outages are on the horizon, we must do something quickly.

The Paper

Travel Troubleshooter

Q: British Airways canceled my recent flight from Boston to London. The airline said it canceled the flight because of "operational constraints." British Airways sent me an email promising to "do everything we can to get you where you need to be."

I asked the airline for a refund. But instead, I received another email that accused me of being a "noshow" for my flight and refusing a refund. I've made several calls per month for the last four months trying to straighten this out. Finally, I received an email from British Airways that said per its fare rules, it could not offer a refund. But British Airways canceled my flight. Doesn't it owe me a refund? -Carrie Christensen, Pittsfield, Mass. A: It most certainly does. If an airline cancels a flight, it owes you a full and prompt refund under its fare rules and federal regulations. British Airways can't keep your money under any circumstances.

I'm kind of shocked that your refund request dragged on this long. I reviewed the correspondence between you and British Airways. The facts were clear: You received an email from British Airways that said, "We're sorry your flight has been canceled due to operational constraints." And you sent that email to the airline when you requested your refund. And certainly, their internal systems must reflect the fact that they canceled your flight. How much more do they need? You did a terrific job of keeping all of your records with the airline. If only British Airways had paid attention to its records, then you wouldn't have a complaint at all.

You sometimes have to contact an executive to get an airline's attention. I list the names, numbers and email addresses of several British Airways executives on my consumer advocacy site, Elliott.org. I think a quick, polite message might have gotten this resolved.

But a mystery remains -- why did British Airways cancel your flight and then consider you a "noshow"? To find out, I contacted the airline directly on your behalf. It looks like your flight wasn't canceled after all. British Airways generated the cancellation notice by mistake. The airline agreed to issue a full refund.

Problem Solved

Q: I purchased a Samsung 980 Pro SSD solid state drive from a local Micro Center and registered the product with my Samsung account. I sent Samsung the solid state drive (SSD) to update the firmware under my warranty. Samsung confirmed that it received the SSD and said it would take four days to complete the process. But the company never returned the SSD or gave me a refund. It's been more than a month. Can you help me? -- Kay Talley, Santa Ana, Calif.

A: Something has gone seriously wrong with your return. Samsung should have acknowledged your drive and updated the firmware in the time period it promised. Your case is what I like to call a black hole return: You send a product to the company -- and it does nothing. Black hole returns are one of the most vexing consumer problems I've ever encountered. How can a company accept a return and then stop communicating with you? And I also wonder what would happen if the roles were reversed. What if a company sent you something and you failed to acknowledge it or pay for it? Corporate America would have a hissy fit. You kept excellent records of your return, including a paper trail of your electronic chats with Samsung. Good job! It shows your repeated efforts to get Samsung to reveal the whereabouts of your SSD and to return it. The trail ends with you contacting the Better Business Bureau and connecting with someone from Samsung who promises a speedy resolution.

"We're just waiting for the system to finalize everything for you to receive the electronic coupon," he says. "I'm still going to continue to follow up with you just in case you have further questions, or you can reach me directly at my office." But nothing happened after that. And that's when you contacted me. Black Hole cases are challenging. If a company doesn't acknowledge a return, it's considered lost. At that point, you have to file insurance claims. If you don't have proof of your return, you could be out of luck. Fortunately, you kept your UPS receipt -- again, good job.

I list the email addresses and phone numbers for Samsung's customer service managers on my consumer advocacy website, Elliott.org. I think a brief, polite email to one of them might have resolved this missing return case. But you've been more than patient. I contacted Samsung on your behalf. A representative reached out to you and promised a refund. A day later, Samsung finally refunded you for your SSD.

Historically Speaking by Tom Morrow

We’ve Lost the ‘Beaver’s Older Brother

For those of us older than 40, we lost a TV icon this past a week. Tony “Wally Cleaver,” Dow, the “Beaver’s” older brother, succumbed to cancer at age 77. If you’ve never “left” it to ‘The Beaver,’” then this column may not register in your memory bank.

ferent roles. From 1965 to 1968, he served in the U.S. National Guard, interrupting his acting career. On his return to acting, he guest-starred on the television series “Adam-12,” “Love, American Style,” “Knight Rider,” “Square Pegs,” “The Mod Squad,” “The Hardy Boys” and “Emergency!” During the 1970s, Dow continued acting while working in the construction industry, and studying journalism and filmmaking. In 1977, he parodied his role as Wally from” Leave it to Beaver” in “The Kentucky Fried Movie,” with Jerry Zucker playing Beaver.

From 1983 to 1989, Dow reprised his role as Wally Cleaver in a reunion television movie and a subsequent sequel series, The “New Leave It to Beaver,” for which Dow wrote an episode in 1986. In 1987, he was honored by the Young Artist Foundation with its Former Child Star Lifetime Achievement Award for his role as Wally Cleaver. In 1989, Dow made his debut as a director with an episode of “The New Lassie.” It was followed by episodes of “Get a Life,” “Harry and the Hendersons,” “Coach,” “Babylon 5,” “Crusade,” and “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.”

Tony Dow

Some 40 years ago I was a feature writer for the old Escondido Times Advocate. I and T-A photographer Dan Rios had the good fortune to meet and interview both Dow and Jerry Mathers, who played “The Beaver.” From 1957 to 1963, their weekly family sit-com was in most living rooms across the nation. The show has run continuously in syndication somewhere in the world ever since.

Anthony Lee Dow was born April 13, 1945. From his “Leave it to Beaver” role he went on to be a film producer, director and sculptor. Dow portrayed Wally Cleaver in the iconic television family sitcom from 1957 to 1963. In 1989, Dow reprised his role as Wally in a television movie, “The New Leave it to Beaver,” Dow was the son of Muriel Virginia (Montrose), a stuntwoman in westerns, and John Stevens Dow, a designer and contractor. In his youth, Tony Dow trained as a swimmer and was a Junior Olympics diving champion.

With a little stage acting and two television pilots as his only acting experience, Dow's career began when he went on an open-casting call and landed the role of Wally Cleaver for “Leave It to Beaver.” With the exception of the television pilot, for the show's entire run, from 1957 to 1963, Dow played the older son of June (played by Barbara Billingsley) and Ward (played by Hugh Beaumont) Cleaver, and the older brother of protagonist Theodore "Beaver" Cleaver (played by Jerry Mathers).

After” Leave it to Beaver,” Dow appeared on other television shows, including “My Three Sons,” “Dr. Kildare,” “The Greatest Show on Earth,” “Never Too Young, and on five episodes of “Mr. Novak” in three dif-

Dow served as the visual effects supervisor for “Babylon 5.” In 1996, he provided visual effects for the Fox television movie “Doctor Who”. In 1995, Dow also co-produced “The Adventures of Captain Zoom in Outer Space,” and in 1996, “It Came from Outer Space II.”

In addition to acting, directing, producing and writing, Dow also was a sculptor, creating abstract bronze sculptures. He said about his work: "The figures are abstract and not meant to represent reality, but rather the truth of the interactions as I see and feel them. I find the wood in the hills of Topanga Canyon and each piece evolves from my subconscious. I produce limited editions of nine bronzes using the lost wax process from molds of the original burl sculpture."

In December 2008, Dow was chosen as one of three sculptors to show at the Société Nationale des Beaux-Arts exhibition, located in the Carrousel du Louvre in Paris, France. He represented the United States delegation, which was composed of artists from the Karen Lynne Gallery. His abstract shown at the Parisian shopping mall was titled "Unarmed Warrior," a bronze figure of a woman holding a shield. In the 1990s, Dow revealed he had suffered from clinical depression. He subsequently starred in self-help videos chronicling this battle, including the 1998 video “Beating the Blues.” Dow also was hospitalized with pneumonia in 2021. My 1979 interview of Dow and Mathers was during the last stop in a 16-month dinner-theater production at Sebastian’s Playhouse in San Clemente. Earlier this year (2022), Dow was diagnosed with liver cancer and on July 27, he passed at his home in Topanga Canyon, at the age of 77.

“Leave it to Beaver” has been dubbed in 20 different languages and like “I Love Lucy,” continues to be one of TV’s most successful re-run productions that will entertain families for years to come.

lies – together by stepping in and raising their grandchildren when necessary.

They often prevent abandoned grandkids from suffering life-long trauma by stepping in and rearing them with total love and acceptance. When divorce, drug addiction, or death takes parents away, it is often grandpa and grandma who stand in the doorway with wide, opened arms for their grandchildren. The Associated Press reports that more and more grandparents are raising their grandchildren and that number is increasing. As Maria Moissades, head of the Massachusetts’ Office of the Child Advocate sadly reveals, in 2022 there is a growing number of children abandoned by parents because of parental addiction to various drugs today, from alcohol to prescription drugs, and from heroin to crack cocaine and everything in between. She further testifies: “You’ve got grandparents who thought they were going to spend their retirement fishing and traveling. Now they’re raising as many as five grandkids.”

Today, more and more grandparents are becoming the safety net, the last best hope by stepping in and – at a great financial sacrifice to themselves – giving all they have to love, care, and raise another generation of innocent children. And

Page 8

sadly, 1 out of 5 grandparents that are raising their grandchildren today are, themselves, well below the poverty level.

And yet, for all they do and sacrifice, grandparents in their old age, are not always shown reciprocation which they richly deserve. Instead, they are often neglected, abused, and forced into nursing homes, often against their own will. It is there, in these nursing homes where they often spend their final hours, rarely visited -- if visited at all.

GRANDPA AND HIS LITTLE GRANDDAUGHTER. Here is a popular story that captures the essence of neglect in the final years of grandparents. It also bears witness to unswerving love between a grandparent and his tiny granddaughter. The storyline often rings of truth.

There was an elderly grandpa who, in his greener years, was very handsome, strong, and keen of mind. He was once a young military man who had saved many lives out in the battlefield. He stood straight and tall and his strength and decency and sense of fair play were wellrespected during his courageous defense of our country. However, as with all things in life, he began to falter to the onslaught of the years. He soon became frail and weak and vulnerable in his

Dear Lyle and also, Evelyn;

Subject: A Navy Seal

Farewell

To Evelyn first; A while ago I offered to take a more flattering photo, gratis, for The Paper. I had no response so I withdrew the offer. I will miss the Social Butterfly column. I retired 4 years ago at 70 and was completely 'burned out' in business; I understand how the effort put into The Paper can be exhaustive and earn a well deserved retirement. Best wishes, you'll be missed! To Lyle: Congratulations on your continuing work. My wife, Nancy, and I always look forward to picking up a new edition at the Escondido Public Library. I did paraphrase the "Irish Taxi" joke myself after reading it and then offended my friend (and his coaddressees) to whom I sent it to also. "Poor judgment" is my middle name. I do recall something a man whom I admire had said a long time ago. "Don" was confronted by someone who criticized one of his decisions. His reply, upon admitting his mistake, was, "If I was perfect, I'd be crucified".

I was shocked at the time but he was absolutely correct! I recall it often. Keep up the good work with the Chuckles! I'm on your side. Finally, many kudos to Friedrich Gomez. This man is a inexhaustible fountain of writing talent! He may be a bit unconventional, but so was Jesus Christ (hallowed be His name). I look forward to his many well written and well researched articles. Godspeed!

Lyle, you have an unprecedented skill in delivering an emotional message that hits us right in the solar plexus!! Your style of presentation shames the big league media who fail miserably in pedestrian, tedious, "assembly line" messages that lack vigor, creative writing skills, which are necessary in capturing public awareness. This is when The Paper is at its best, with absolutely nothing that compares to you! Keep writing Lyle, we NEED you!

When someone says "She's not really beautiful but she has a great personality and a fine mind," that means she's an authentic dog with fat ankles. Lyle's Homily: It always pays to be sincere, whether you mean it or not.

A wise old philosopher, it may have been I, the Santayana of Nietzche Street, once said: "People who think they know it all enrage those of us who really do. . . ." And finally, (and I really mean it this time!). . Lyle's Opinion:

A psychiatrist is a man who tells you things about yourself you already suspect, in words you don't understand, and at a price you can't afford. His game is psychiatry, which hinges on casting intellectu-

al spells, reciting incantations, and finding parents guilty.. . . . . Lyle's corollary: Love means never having to say you're (a) ruptured; (b) swaybacked; (c) eviscerated; or (d) embalmed.

Greetings Escondido, As some of you may know, I am the vice chair at LAFCO (Local Agency Formation Commission.) Supervisor Jim Desmond is the chair. If you are not familiar, “LAFCOs were established in 1963 and responsible under State law to facilitate orderly growth and development in the most efficient manner possible while protecting against the premature conversion of agricultural and open-space resources in all 58 counties in California.” What they actually do is the following: Incorporate cities and form special districts, Annex and detach lands to cities and special districts, Activate or deactivate special districts’ service powers, Consolidate two or more cities or special districts into one, Merge special districts into cities, Disincorporate cities and dissolve special districts, Authorize cities and districts to provide new or extended services outside their boundaries by contracts. They clearly have a lot of say over land management and growth. They also produce a thing called a Municipal Service Review (MSR.) We, the commission, just approved going forward on the proposed MSR for Escondido, meaning what areas they are going to analyze. You can find out what LAFCO will be looking at for Escondido by simply going to their website, https://www.sdlafco.org and look under Meetings and the Agenda for the August 1st meeting. Once done, and this is the important part, you can give input before anything is finalized. Please take a look and don’t be shy about giving your opinion. Robust debate, I think, helps us to the best decisions even if there is compromise. Stay informed, Be Kind, Remember your neighbor, and Stay safe! Semper Fi, Mac Paul P.

specifications for “Enterprise” PCs are developed by the same computer professionals (ITs) that service and maintain the PCs and their networks. Their specifications emphasize quality, reliability and performance and include multi-year manufacturer’s warranty. By contrast, the “retail” versions of the same big three name brands Lenovo, HP and Dell are built as cheaply as possible because the average “retail” customer has no way to judge quality, reliability and performance. They are “price shoppers.”

We are in the process of exploring a new relationship with a reliable source of PC and peripheral products. We can’t talk about it yet, but the immediate result is that we are now able to offer Windows based, high quality, late model “Enterprise” grade mobile PCs at incredibly low prices. “Enterprise” PCs are the ones purchased in large quantities by corporations, governments and school systems. If you are considering the purchase of a portable PC for home, business or school you need to check us out. We’ve often talked about the difference between these “Enterprise” refurbs and the “Retail” PCs sold in “big box” Estores like Best Buy, Walmart and Costco. The big difference is that the

Desktop, ALL-in-Ones and other immobile PCs suffer less from low quality components than portables because they are immobile. With portables it’s a completely different story. Because portables get banged around in movement they are far more likely to suffer damaged with cheap “retail” components. Lighter weight is often considered to be a positive attribute by naïve retail shoppers so the major brands keep making outer cases thinner and more flimsy. This results in cracked screens, broken hinges, separation and a myriad of other problems. Ports and connections on the low end motherboards pull loose and the strain relief connections on the AC power adapters fail.

This new relationship is in its infancy and future weeks should allow us to provide more products and related commodities. By the time this issue of

Though we are emphasizing portables this week, don’t forget that we build standard home and business workstations and specialty PCs for any application. We also have a large stock of All-in-One and desktop PCs and we do repairs and upgrades on all Windows PCs.

Last but not least, we offer trade-in value on your old PC.

We see all of these problems because standard “retail” warranties are only one year. The extended warranties offered for a price by retailers are a joke, often they involve shipping the PC to a repair depot that takes weeks to accomplish the simple repair that could have be done by a local shop in a matter of minutes.

There are 13 participating organizations here in San Diego County.

Praise for The Computer Factory

Mr. Davis, Just want to give praise to Paul and Nome (Van Middlesworth) about the refurb computer I bought from The Computer Factory years ago.

I have had 2 episodes, A couple days ago, a fatal virus tried to hijack my computer while I was searching for a recipe. Both episodes I had to force a shutdown and my computer was restored thanks to the security systems that were installed in my computer.

The refurb computers that The Computer Factory sell are as good, or better, than the new computers sold in big box stores! God bless America! Angelo Caruso

From Supervisor Jim Desmond

lyle --

Earlier today, I stood alongside Borrego Springs residents and San Diego County community members, all who have the same message, ‘No More Sexually Violent Predators in San Diego County.’

It's not right for the State and Liberty Healthcare to hold these trials during these summer months when most of Borrego Springs is out of town. As I mentioned on the news this morning, once Borrego Springs is filled with Sexually Violent Predators, they're going to continue to look for other communities in San Diego County. We must keep fighting these proposed placements and I'm going to work with our State legislators to see if there's something we can do to house these SVP's on State prison grounds. These people should not be allowed to terrorize any more people.

Earlier in the morning, I was on the media with Terrie Kellmeyer, who lives right across the street from this proposed placement. Terrie has three kids including two who are deaf. It's heartbreaking to hear her story and what her family is having to go through.

He still saluted the American flag whenever he saw it, or stood up as best he could whenever he heard our National Anthem. His frame was no longer straight, but stooped and hunched heavily over his cane. But, he stood nonetheless. He was now an old man.

Because of his frail years, the former proud father and military man was placed in the care of his son and daughter-in-law with whom he lived, along with his grandchild, aged 5. He often held his granddaughter, sang “Hickory, Dickory, Dock” and recited other nursery rhymes with her.

At times the little girl would sing “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star” to her grandpa and sometimes her heavy eyelids would close as she would gently lay her small head on grandpa’s chest, and there she would nap. Safely in his arms.

But at the supper table, grandpa would often drop food from his plate onto his lap or, worse, onto the floor. You see, his soldier-like hands sometimes shook with feebleness. Sometimes he would

accidentally spill his glass of milk, causing his son and daughter-in-law to look at each other with great annoyance. Whenever mishaps occurred, they began to scold him loudly, to be more careful. Though he was old and couldn’t help himself, inside of his trapped body, he still possessed a sharp mind and he felt sorry and ashamed of himself.

His son and daughter-in-law made it clear that he was an unwelcomed burden to the family. Especially at suppertime. However, one thing never changed. His little granddaughter never saw him as anything less than the wisest and most important hero in her life. She loved saying the ABCs for him because he cared enough to hear them over and over again, and never got tired of hearing them. When she would finish, grandpa would always laugh and clap his hands. Grandpa was special that way. Sometimes they would even play hide-and-go-seek together. The little granddaughter felt so special and so happy to have grandpa around.

Once more at the dinner table, grandpa tried his utmost to keep the peas from rolling off his spoon, but, they still dribbled onto the kitchen tile below. Scolded to be more careful, they finally decided to have grandpa eat by himself in the kitchen corner, on a small table. And to make certain he didn’t break any of his daughter-in-law’s fragile dishes, his porcelain plate was now replaced with a wooden bowl. All seemed to be back to normal. But, scraps of food from grandpa’s

wooden bowl would, somehow, still continue to find its way to the floor. His little granddaughter noticed as grandpa sat, alone, away from his family, that he often had a tear in his eye. Then, one day it happened.

When the family was eating their supper, the little girl was on the floor beside her grandpa’s chair, gathering pieces of food scraps that grandpa had dropped off his wooden bowl. Seeing their daughter this way, her parents quickly grew upset with her. Both grandpa’s son and daughter-in-law abruptly got up from the dinner table and loudly asked their 5-year-old daughter: “What are you doing with those scraps?!” That’s when the little girl stopped and looked up and said, “I’m making wooden bowls for you Mommy and Daddy, so when you both grow old.” Often out of the mouths of babes, comes the expected truth.

From that day onward, as the story goes, grandpa always ate at the dinner table – with the rest of the family.

And whatever mishap he may have had, he was never again scolded, but smiled upon. And the little girl noticed that she never again saw a tear in grandpa’s eyes. But, she did notice a twinkle in his eyes. As well as a big smile, whenever he looked, lovingly, in her direction. God bless our grandparents, verily, they are true treasures in our lives.
