Volume 50 - No. 01

.ByFriedrich Gomez

Some of the biggest stars are lining up for the year 2020, waiting to make their appearances at the beautiful Pala Casino Resort & Spa’s popular Events Center, which is enormous enough to accommodate and comfortably seat 2,000 spectators.

The Pala Events Center needs to be large because the crowds are quickly discovering that Pala Casino Resort & Spa is The Paper - 760.747.7119

the best Las Vegas-style casino this side of paradise with a sprawling acreage that literally takes one’s breath away.

Aside from the galaxy of stars scheduled to appear at the ever-popular Events Center (which will be discussed later in this article), Pala Casino Resort Hotel & Spa is a firstmagnitude star in its own right, an attraction unto itself, which has captured headline news in magazines, television newscasts, and the social


And for good reason.


Pala Casino Resort Hotel & Spa’s customer amenities rival those seen on television’s fictional “Fantasy Island” series (still in popular re-runs). The sprawling wonderland has to be seen to be fully believed.

The still-relatively-new gigantic Tourmaline Pool area is an aquatic oasis unto itself, with a network of swimming pools interwoven together that would make fantasy/sci-fi comic book and motion picture character, “Aquaman,” feel most at home. Nothing is spared at this “pool oasis” for hotel guests, which even includes “Water Loungers,” or “Floating Water Recliners,” which are reclining stationary lounge chairs situated in -and surrounded by – water,

upon which hotel patrons can sit, nap and dream in a seemingly make-believe world.

It brings to life what comedian David Letterman once uttered on his erstwhile late night talk show: “It’s just too much fun for human beings to be allowed to have.” Letterman’s remark can easily be applied to Pala Casino Resort Hotel & Spa. MORE ENCHANTMENTS AWAIT: WATERFALLS, FIRE PITS, AND “SWIM UP BAR.” With its five outdoor heated swimming pools, including an exotic network of waterfalls, swim-up bar, in-pool water recliners, and beautifullydesigned “Shallow Reef Steps” which serve as water entry points into the swimming pools, it is little wonder why this acreage is “the” place to be.

Pala Casino Resort & Spa further pampers its guests with two onsite spa tubs, daybeds, hot tubs, 14 luxury cabanas, fire pits, and full-service café and bar – all of which gives new meaning to the old adage: “Pamper yourself, because selfcare is a divine responsibility.”

Give Us This Day Our Daily Chuckle This week, a compendium of wit, wisdom and neat stuff you can tell at parties. Enjoy!

I gave each of my kids a pack of batteries with a sign that says "Toys not included." •••• A guy and a girl meet at a bar……

They get along so well that they decide to go to the girl's place.

A few drinks later, the guy takes off his shirt and then washes his hands. He then takes off his trousers and again washes his hands. The girl has been watching him and says: "You must be a dentist."

The guy, surprised, says: "Yes .... How did you figure that out?"

Pala’s luxurious high-rise hotel, which completed an exorbitant $170 million expansion and improvement project in May of 2018, affords guests with a priceless panoramic view of the Palomar Mountains in Northern San Diego County. Such a fantasy get-away is reminiscent of what famed author and Irish playwright, George Bernard Shaw (18561950), once said upon first seeing California’s celebrated Hearst Castle: “This is how God would have done it, if he had the money.” Pala Casino Spa and Resort Hotel is worthy of Shaw’s extravagant praise.


Pala’s eye-popping tropical surroundings, encircled by Temecula wineries and only 5 miles from San Diego County’s oldest, historic preserve, the Wilderness Gardens Park, all have enhanced Pala’s locale and appeal, with this Crown Jewel of Casinos being featured in multiple publications, such as The San Diego UnionTribune Newspaper, The Los Angeles Times, as well as various television news segments. Pala Casino Resort Hotel &

"Easy.." she replies, "you keep washing your hands."

One thing leads to another and they make love. After it's over the girl says: "You must be a good dentist." The guy, now with an inflated ego, says: "Sure - I'm a good dentist. How did you figure that out?" The girl replies:.... "Didn't feel a thing." •••• One night a nurse was making her rounds in a nursing home.

While walking down the hall, she came across an open door. She looked in and saw old Frank sitting up in bed pretending to drive.

She asked, 'Frank, what are you doing?'

He replied, 'I'm driving to Toronto .' The nurse smiled at him and carried on making her rounds

The next night as she walked past Frank's room she saw the same thing. Again she asked, 'Frank, what are you doing?' He replied, 'I'm driving to Toronto . It's a two day trip, you know!'

Spa remains enormously popularity as a favorite hideaway and vacation spot with locals as well as tourists who plan their annual vacations here in San Diego County.

And even though the resort is constantly being ‘discovered’ by a growing number of people, Pala’s enchantment is nothing new to the print and visual media.

San Diego Magazine officially rated Pala Casino Resort Hotel & Spa as one of the top Las Vegas-style establishments back in their November 27, 2017, issue. In San Diego Magazine’s short list “The Top 5 Best Casinos in all of San Diego County,” the magazine’s description was perfectly stated: “You don’t need to be in Vegas to hit the slot machines.” Regarding Pala Casino Hotel & Resort as an exhilarating hotbed of excitement and nightlife, the magazine further stated: “And the customers have a wide range of poker, bingo and table games to choose from and exhilarating live play and championship tournaments to take part in.” EXPLORER’S PARADISE: UNDERGROUND WINE CAVE & TOP RATED SPAS & RESTAURANTS.

The San Diego Union-Tribune newspaper cited Pala Casino Spa & Resort’s unique attractions: “A full-scale casino resort with a hotel, underground wine cave, top-rated spa and a variety of restaurants.” San Diego’s largest daily newspaper also touted Pala’s 507 room luxury hotel, including its 82 luxury suites.

And in the widely-read tourist forum, “Trip Saavy: California San Diego,” dated June 3, 2019, the popular and influential website reported: “Pala, with its Four-Diamond hotel and large casino, is the prototypical Indian casino that harkens to the Vegas experience.”

Since then, the vast resort empire continues to be a magnet in attracting new patrons who, in turn, spread the word to others. The “Crown Jewel of Casinos” speaks for itself, without the necessity of hype. HILLS OF ITALY, CLASSIC TUSCAN DESIGN.

the crowd so the man could get through to where the injured man lay.

She saw Bob pretending to dance with someone. She then asked, 'Bob, what are you doing?'

"B-5 ... I-19 ... N-38 ... G-54 ... O72.

Five minutes later she came across another open door and looked in.

Bob replied, 'I'm dancing with Franks wife. He's gone to Toronto for a couple of days...'. •••• LAST RITES

Tragically, a bus on a busy street struck an old Catholic man. He was lying near death on the sidewalk as a crowd gathered. "A priest," the man gasped.

A policeman checked the crowd and finally yelled, "A PRIEST, PLEASE! Is there a priest in the crowd to give this man his last rites? Finally, out of the crowd stepped a little, old Jewish man.

"Mr. Policeman," said the man, "I'm not a priest. I'm not even a Christian. But, for 50 years now, I'm living behind the Catholic Church on Second Avenue , and, every night, I'm overhearing their services. I can recall a lot of it, and maybe I can be of some comfort to this poor man." The policeman agreed, and cleared

The old Jewish man knelt down, leaned over the man, and said in a solemn voice:.. I got everyone a bucket of mryhh for Christmas.

Those who bitched and otherwise complained I made sure they got a great big wad of used frankincense.

Gold, I kept for my very own self, in the spirit of Christmas. •••• Long ago, I managed to solve the pressures of Christmas. I took my shotgun out behind the barn, fired it, came back in with a long face and said . . ."children, I hate to be the one to tell you but Santa committed suicide." Oh, there were a few tears for a year or two . . . but they got over it.

I'd give them a Christmas card with a $5 bill inside. If they were particularly sad I'd raise it to a $10 bill.

architecture that surrounds you at Pala Casino Resort & Spa is like touring the Louvre Museum blindfolded. If you are aware of it or not, you are surrounded by a masterpiece of classic design, everywhere. Pala Casino Resort Hotel and Spa is a AAA “Four-Diamond AwardWinning” establishment for seven, soon-to-be eight, consecutive years. Its breathtaking high-rise luxury hotel design is influenced by the hills of central Italy with its Tuscan-style architecture and interior design, which culminates in an astounding 507 Guestroom Hotel Tower, replete with deluxe rooms, including 82 Luxury Suites, all of which keep guests, tourists, and the visual and print media giving continued high praise. Rooms feature mini-bars, two phones, large flat screen televisions, and high-speed internet. Luxury Suites even come with a Jacuzzi. HOW MANY RESTAURANTS & EATERIES DOES PALA CASINO SPA & HOTEL RESORT HAVE? A. 5 B. 7 C. 10

A few of the notable names in the 2020 lineup include: Ann Compton, who covered seven presidents; Mitch Albom, an author, columnist, radio host, and philanthropist whose books have sold over 39 million copies and been translated into more than 45 languages; and Jonathan Haidt, a social psychologist at NYU whose last two books were New York Times bestsellers. The 15 speakers will provide insight on issues like poverty and hunger, the global water crisis, immigration, mass incarceration, religious freedom, and big data’s inequality and threat to democracy. Kristi Potter, the director of the January Series says the goal of the series is to cultivate deep thought and conversations about important issues of the day so as to inspire cultural renewal and the shaping of better global citizens in God’s world. “Gaining knowledge is the first step to making a difference,” said Potter. “If we don’t know about these topics, then we don’t know how we can actually make a difference.” Potter says this work starts with listening, even to those with whom we may disagree. She says day two of the January Series will provide a great opportunity for attendees to see what this looks like.

“We have the opportunity to hear from two respected scientists who hold opposing viewpoints on the topic of origins. One is a six-day creationist, the other a theistic evolutionist, and both feel strongly about their views. Both actually feel the other person’s view is harming the church,” said Potter. “And yet, the two have learned to talk to rather than past one another, using respectful dialogue with the understanding that they are both Christians. This moderated conversation will serve as a model for us for how to have difficult conversations—something we aspire to foster through this series and in all of our work at Calvin University.”

If memory serves you correctly, after reading this article, the right answer is “C.” Pala Casino Resort Hotel & Spa has a remarkable 10 different restaurants/eateries, as well as two coffee shops. And if all this were still not enough, believe it or not, Pala Casino Resort & Spa’s sprawling property also boasts a grocery/convenience store. HOW MANY “LIVE” ENTERTAINMENT VENUES DOES PALA CASINO RESORT & SPA HAVE ? A. 2 B. 3 C. 4

Again, correct answer is “C.” The huge resort complex has four (4) concert and show venues. Concerts at the outdoor Starlight Theater give audiences a special atmosphere under the stars, to cite just one example. The beautiful 2,000capacity Pala Events Center has attracted some of the hottest names in world entertainment, which we will go into in more detail later in this article. DOES PALA CASINO SPA & RESORT HAVE A WIDE VARIETY OF GAMBLING FUN? Without question, a resounding “Yes!” Pala Casino Resort

While Potter says the series will dig deep into some of the complex issues facing the world today, it will also highlight the great progress being made in some of these areas. She expects it will inspire hope. “It’s not all doom and gloom, positive things are happening. I hope those who tune into the series this coming year will leave hopeful for the future and understand how they can take steps to make a difference. And maybe that step is just being more willing to listen to one another and acknowledging one another for who they are.”

The January Series lectures will be video streamed live at Calvin Christian School (2000 N. Broadway, Escondido, California 92026) from 9:30am to 10:30am, PST, Monday through Friday. The lectures are free and open to the public. In 2020, 60 remote locations will carry the January Series—spanning 22 U.S. states, three Canadian provinces, and one site in Europe.

Hotel & Spa continues to be a favorite vacation spot and playground for a wide variety of fun and excitement. The resort has over 2,300 slot machines, approximately 90 table games, and a vast variety of other fun opportunities, such as: Blackjack, Baccarat, Pai Gow Poker, Pala Roulette, Keno, Bingo, and Pala Craps, to give just a sampling.

And speaking of playing craps, famous comedian Freddie Roman said: “I played the slot machines down in Florida’s retirement communities. It’s different for senior citizens down there. The slot machines have prunes, instead of cherries. If you get 5 prunes in a row – you go to the Craps table!” PALA’S 10,000-SQUAREFOOT SPA & SALON IS MADE TO PAMPER BOTH MEN AND WOMEN.

Among the many attractions and luxurious amenities that Pala offers, they also offer an Award-Winning 10,000square-foot Spa and Salon. This includes 14 individual Treatment Rooms to rejuvenate, refresh, and revitalize your natural body with your choice of either an indoor or outdoor patio setting.

The Paper • Page 4 • January 02, 2020 Meet Escondido’s New Chief of Police, Ed Varso

The new Chief of Police is Ed Varso, a 19-year veteran of the department. Last October he was appointed to the newly created position of assistant chief of police. Varso, 41, will succeed Craig Carter, who will retire at the end of the year. Varso’s first official day will be Jan. 1. The Escondido Police Department has about 225 employees, of which 160 are police officers. City Manager Jeff Epp said. “He has great support within the Police Department and among the entire Department Head team. He is both experienced and well-rounded. He has an awesome family and is dedicated to our community.”

Officials said Varso knows the department thoroughly, having worked in nearly every division. He has even been the department’s public information officer, a job Carter once held and a job Carter said helped him prepare for his leadership position. Varso is married and has three children and recently relocated to Escondido. He has a bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice Administration and a Master’s of Public Administration degree. New Labor Law Confusing

In 2019 the state legislature passed

Assembly Bill 5, which has initially confused employers and free lance contractors as to what is an employee versus what is an independent contractor.. Basically, writers, photographers and similar service providers can maintain their status as independent contractos provided they provide 35 or less services per year to a specific publication.

The specific language of AB 5 notes that the worker shall be classified as an employee “unless the hiring entity demonstrates that all of the criteria to be considered an independent contractor are met. The law has yet to be tested or challenged . . . but there will likely be legal challenges. A Second Recall Effort in Oceanside Launched

It appears two Oceanside City Council membrs may have to deal with recall efforts. Council member Esther Sanchez has been notifided by city officials that a recall campaign appears to be underway for her alleged “inability to work with her peers” and her long-standing opposition to legalized cannabis. Though supporters of the campaign turned in a notice to the city clerk’s office last week it was rejected on a technicality. The problem was that no affidavit was provided to verify Sanchez had been served with the notice, said

Man About Town Happy New Year!

As we enter yet another year I find myself looking back over years that are now behind me.

Some memories to contemplate upon:

Think back to those days when you were first married. Remember the hardships you endured and pulled through because you did it together? Often, we new-marrieds had little money, little in the way of assets, and living from paycheck to paycheck was quite common. I remember when Mary and I first married. I think I was making about $400 per month, she was working at Mutual of Omaha and making $200-250

We owned a series of cars that were kept together with spit and bailing wire. On one occasion I remember driving to work and my right front tire became inoperable. I felt devastated! One or two studs on the tire had broken off the thingies on which you attach the lug nuts. The tire was so wobbly the car could barely move. I think I had, maybe, $15 cash on me, no credit cards, no checkbook. I limped into a service station. Don't know if the guy felt sorry for me or if that was the going rate but he fixed me up and charged me, I think, $7.50!

I remember one evening a salesman came by. He wanted to sell us advanced end of life planning. Cemetery plots. We were in our early/mid-20's. At one point he adopted a sad, solemn look and intoned . . . "and in our memorial garden, you may stop and reflect upon your departed loved one." It was all Mary and I could do to keep from laughing.

City Clerk Zeb Navarro. Recall proponents can serve their recall candidate in person or by certified mail, but either way the service must be verified with an affidavit. The Sanchez notice included only a receipt for certified mail, which was insufficient. “They will need to refile and reserve,” Navarro said. “They have to start again at the beginning.”

Some residents are also seeking to recall District 2 Councilman Christopher Rodriguez. Either recall effort would have to collect the signatures of at least 10 percent of the registered voters in their district to place the recall on the ballot in that district. The mayor, city clerk and city treasurer are the only positions still elected at-large in Oceanside. A council member since 2000, Sanchez was elected to a four-year term in the newly created District 1 in 2018, which was the city’s first year of district council elections. She has said she will be a candidate next fall for the job of mayor. That position is held by former City Manager Peter Weiss, who was appointed after former Mayor Jim Wood resigned because of ill health. Recall efforts are traditionally very difficult to succeed unless the alleged transgressions are very severe. Escondido’s former Mayor, Wil Mason, was successfully recalled back in the 1970’s. No suc-

Another time, we had an insurance salesman. It was a former Nebraska Cornhusker football star that had married Governor Frank Morrison's daughter. I think his name was Dennis xxxxxx. He was a red head. Had gone to Benson High, played with Jim Moore, and was a good player - but when he went to Nebraska, he became a great player. We had known him slightly at BHS but now felt in awe. Here, a Husker star, was in our living room, pitching an insurance plan. We didn't buy, in spite of our awe and his very professional and polite presentation. I remember another evening when Mary and I had gotten into a fierce argument. We weren't talking to one another. Only glaring. Doorbell rings. It's a young Presbyterian Minister - first name Tom, forget the last name. Movie star handsome guy, asked if he could visit with us. Great meeting. Timely meeting. When he left, Mary and I had put our argument, whatever it was, behind us. Turns out the lead minister of the church was from Scotland - which sat rather well with Mary as Scotland was her home. Later, I accepted a job offer from Sabena, the Belgian airline, as commercial sales rep, which required that we move to Chicago. We found a lovely apart-

ment in Oak Park, Illinois, right on the subway line. Whenever we had company we'd entertain them by driving them by Sam Giancana's house which was about eight blocks away, 1104 S. Wenonah, if memory serves me correctly. Sam Giancana was "Mr. Big" in the Chicago Mafia. He was assassinated in the basement of his home. We would also drive guest to see the homes of Tony "Big Tuna" Accordo ... in one of the other suburbs. Upon arrival in Chicago we probably saw more of Chicago than the average Chicagoan. We took in all the sights.

In hindsight, I should have recognized that the Sabena job was doomed from the start. My job was to generate freight and/or passenger traffic to Brussels, Belgium. The problem was, most exporters of freight wanted to hit the gateways of London or Paris, or even Berlin . . . not Brussels. So, after giving it a year I decided to go back into radio. I spent the next 25 years in radio and did fairly well. I hit all the areas, on-air talent, sales, management and, briefly, ownership. I then wound up going into business for myself, owning Lyle's at Dixon Lake and Lyle's at

Angeles was the first to call me about your December 2019 Archive Section completely missing for online readers. Tony is a longstanding member of Hollywood's Magic Castle and Tony says he knows for a fact that many Castle members including several celebrity-types, read The Paper such as Jason Alexander (George Constanza in Seinfeld sitcom), Jay Leno, and J. K. Rowling (who now lives in Los Angeles) have read and enjoyed several of your cover stories. And why not? Your cover stories are universal, controversial, and often exclusive in content, such as "When Pastors Lose Their Faith," and so on.

So, what's the mystery on your entire online December 2019 Archive Section section missing? Is it voodoo? Gremlins? Or just that Ol' Black Magic? You got tons of fans out here in 'No Man's Land' and we're lost without a compass. And without your great and different cover stories that keep us on edge! /s/ Patrick Flannigan, North San Diego County. Editor’s Note: Sadly, the answer is our top notch Art Director, Troy Larson, passed away suddenly the first week of December. Among Troy’s many talents was uploading

CASH: “I do. I have a favorite. My favorite female artist is Emmylou Harris. My favorite male artist is Dwight Yoakam.” KING: “Good actor, too.” CASH: “Isn’t he great?” KING: “And a scary guy. He can sing though.” CASH: “He’s terrific. Yes.” KING: “And he’s a real cowboy.” CASH: “I know he is. He is.” KING: “Are you friends?” CASH: “Yes, we’re friends.”

Living legend, Dwight Yoakam, who draws fans worldwide with his eclectic and pioneer-style of Country, Country Rock, Honky-Tonk, and Blue Grass genre, also holds the record for a musician-singer appearing the most times on The Tonight Show, making an unprecedented 24 Tonight Show appearances, which is a true testament to his vast popularity, both inand-outside of music. The 63year-old mega star, Dwight Yoakam, has proven to be among the most in-demand and popular television and movie personalities (as with his record number of Tonight Show appearances) and with his fan clubs crisscrossing all time zones, hemispheres, and languages. So powerful is Yoakam’s influence that the mighty TIME magazine called him “A Renaissance Man,” and Vanity Fair declared that:

We have found a new graphics person to do the cover art and ads for clients but she does not know how to upload the paper to the website. We are trying to solve that problem right now. As soon as we find the right person who knows how to do that we will update the archive section, including all missing editions from December. We are all missing Troy Larson something fierce here . . . not only for his ability to upload the paper to the website but he was just an all around talent and such a good person. He was only 58 when he passed. It’s been a terrible loss for The Paper. Thanks for your patience and understanding.

“Yoakam strides the divide between rock’s lust and country’s lament.”

Unlike the average successful Country singing star, Yoakam has managed to cross over to movie star status on the big screen, which brings new global fans outside of his music and song. In the movie “Sling Blade” (1996) he plays an abusive live-in boyfriend. In the film “Panic Room” (2002) Yoakam plays a psychopathic killer to perfection, winning plaudits from film critics. Yoakam continued to be brilliant in other films: The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada, Crank: High Voltage, King of the Hill, Bandidas, The Last Rites of Ransom Pride, Red Rock West and others, too numerous to mention. Dwight Yoakam, as TIME magazine professed, even was versatile enough to become a film writer, and motion picture producer when he starred in his own movie “South of Heaven, West of Hell.”

It just seems to never stop with this Renaissance Man, with Yoakam’s presence seemingly omnipresent around the globe: Yoakam even has his own brand of food called “Bakersfield Biscuits,” which is readily available at most retailers, such as Walmart’s worldwide network of stores.

I noticed their Christmas smiles increased proportional to the size of the bill in the card. But I stopped at $10. Sometimes there's just way too much frivolity during the holidays. No sense in getting carried away. Made Christmas a lot easier on me.

In fact, I may just burst out in song.

A pity there is no one here to listen to me sing. I shall, however, in the spirit of the season, entertain my very own self. And I shall applaud myself lustily upon the song's conclusion. Signed . . .lyle the lonely . . .

The other day I went up to our local Christian book store and saw a 'Honk if you love Jesus' bumper sticker .

I was feeling particularly sassy that day because I had just come from a thrilling choir performance, followed by a thunderous prayer meeting..

THE RIGHTEOUS BROTHERS – BILL MEDLEY AND BUCKY HEARD. This is another “must see” show that you dare not want to miss! Originally formed back in 1962 Los Angeles, the original duo of Bill Medley and Bobby Hatfield, literally, took the world by storm with a haunting and heart-rendering musical vocalization which misled many radio listeners around the world into, initially, mistaking the white singing duo as being black, because of their unique and genuine “BlueEyed Soul” vocal styling. Their anthem song “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin’” in 1964 ruled the music charts for weeks, all around the world and was nominated in the Best Rock and Roll Recording category at the 1965, 7th Annual Grammy Awards. Then a tsunami of monster hits followed: “Soul and Inspiration,” as well as the classic remake of “Unchained Melody” (nominated as Best

So, I bought the sticker and put it on my bumper. Boy, am I glad I did; what an uplifting experience that followed.

I was stopped at a red light , just lost in thought about the Lord and how good he is, and I didn't notice that the light had changed. It is a good thing someone else loves Jesus because if he hadn't honked, I'd never have noticed. The guy behind started honking like crazy, and then he leaned out of his window and screamed, 'For the love of God!' 'Go! Go! Go! Jesus Christ, GO!'

What an exuberant cheerleader he was for Jesus!

I just leaned out my window and started waving and smiling at all those loving people. I even honked my horn a few times to share in the love!

There must have been a man from Florida back there because I heard him yelling something about a sunny beach.

I saw another guy waving in a

Pop Vocal Performance by a Duo or Group at the 1991 Grammy Awards), as well as their immortal “Rock and Roll Heaven” – all proved historic in their global impact.

On November 5, 2003, Righteous Brothers singer, Bobby Hatfield, was found dead in his hotel room in Kalamazoo, Michigan, just minutes before he was due to perform at a concert with Bill Medley at Western Michigan University’s Miller Auditorium. In January of 2016, Bill Medley announced his intention to revive the Righteous Brothers for the first time since his singing partner’s death. Medley chose singer Bucky Heard as Hatfield’s replacement. Bucky Heard wasn’t sure of Bill Medley’s proposal to revive the Righteous Brothers, so Bucky agreed to leave the decision to a coin toss. Medley won the coin toss, and the Righteous Brothers were, in essence, reborn. It would be a dreamcome-true for the millions of fans who had long begged for such a reunion to take place. As a gesture of respect to the late Bobby Hatfield, the talented singer Bucky Heard clearly and graciously states that he never attempts to replace Hatfield in that he intends to sing “like” Hatfield, but never to “imitate” or “sound” like him. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see this electrifying and emotional revival of the original Righteous Brothers. It has been a long road, and Bill Medley gives voice to his life’s journey: “I’ve had a million fans hollering at me to keep the Righteous Brothers alive . . .” Thankfully, for a world of listeners, Bill Medley decided to respect his fans wishes.

Moonlight Beach for 27 and 17 years respectively, and, now, having owned The Paper for the past 20 years. Today, I am comfortable . . . but, think about this . . .

Did you also have some of the happiest times of your life when you were young, newly married, and had to struggle together? When you, perhaps like us, were poor as church mice but somehow survived and made it work?

Yup. It sure was a struggle at times. But I wouldn't change those memories or the happy times we had, for the world. Remembering This Christmas

A gift I bought for myself? Two pairs of tennis shorts. My older shorts were beginning to show signs of wear and tear and decided I needed to upgrade my wardrobe. Went to three different sporting goods stores to check out their tennis shorts. Every damn one of them had men's tennis shorts that looked like dresses. They drape all the way down to the knee. Same thing with basketball players - they abandoned the traditional basketball shorts and opted to wear dresses. They look terrible. I decided I was not gonna wear a dress to play tennis or to stroll about leisurely. So I shopped EBay and found a pair of Nike tennis shorts, traditional; ordered them and took delivery yesterday. I think they were $20 a pair. Quite pleased with them. They look like tennis shorts, not dresses. The world has changed to things I don't like. Shorts that look like dresses, dreadlocks, tattoos, piercings in the most unlikely of places, including eye lids, lips, noses and other more intimate areas, hair colors that range from purple to orange to rainbow . . . sorry, not for me. And the strange thing is that those who wear these monstrous additions think it makes them attractive. Here's a clue. They are not and you look silly.

I am still of the old school. Properly trimmed hair, and if you must wear a beard kindly keep it neatly trimmed, no tattooed arms, legs, breasts, forehead . . .no piercings that are anywhere I can see them, and close cropped, neatly trimmed hair in its natural color. And no shorts that look like dresses. Ya big sissies! That's the end of my Christmas Day rant.

New Laws for the New Year

Effective January 1st, hundreds of new laws went into effect. Some you may have heard about, but others possibly not.

Several of the new laws impact veterans. Among these are legislation that makes honorably discharged veterans exempt from paying state or local business license fees for selling or providing services, if the veteran is sole proprietor. Another law exempts automotive adaptive equipment sold to veterans with service-connected disabilities from sales and use taxes. Pro bono civil legal assistance for veterans has been enhanced, and animal adoption fees at shelters for veterans adopting emotional support animals will now be waived. Public safety will also be impacted. Human trafficking convictions are now included in the list of crimes that disqualify persons from driving for rideshare companies, and the statute of limitations for felony domestic violence has increased from three to five years. The statute of limitations to file a claim for employment sexual harassment was also extended from one to three years. On the other hand, earlier parole eligibility is now possible for murderers, rapists and other felons who were under 26 at the time of their crimes, and convicted felons may now serve on civil and

criminal juries after completing their sentences.

California’s gig economy will be heavily affected by the law prohibiting or severely restricting independent contracting. A long list of exemptions for lawyers, accountants, engineers, some health professionals and many others was written into the law. Other, less wellconnected occupations like rideshare drivers, independent truckers and newspaper freelancers did not get exemptions. New legislation to try to remedy all this is under consideration, and lawsuits and ballot initiatives are planned or underway. For better or worse, these are just a few of the new laws that we will be living with in 2020. 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.

5th District Supervisor

Looking Ahead to 2020

It’s been a fantastic first year as a San Diego County Supervisor and while I’ve learned a lot, none of it would be possible without you all. We’ve made some great strides at SANDAG, on behavioral health and veterans affairs as I mentioned last week. Locally, we initiated action with Chairwoman Jacob to dedicate $28 million to unincorporated area road improvements and maintenance. As we look ahead to 2020, I wanted to highlight some items we will be looking at. While we’ve scored some victories at SANDAG this year, we need to continue make sure north county commuters are heard. While public transportation works in downtown San Diego, we need to make sure we are getting a balanced transportation plan for all of San Diego County. I will continue to be vocal and make sure that we receive the promised projects. We made a lot of strides on behavioral health in 2019 and we need to continue to make investments. North County was in a behavioral crisis last year. With our behavioral health team we explored and implemented community based Crisis Stabilization Units. We’re working with Vista and Oceanside to provide these community based centers to their cities. I’m hopeful we will have more beds open in the North County.

Also, we’ve spent a lot of time out in Borrego Springs working on a solution regarding groundwater resources. I’m hopeful in the upcoming year we will be able to implement some changes and collaboratively find a solution. We were able to fund several parks last year including the Fallbrook Skatepark, Don Dussalt Park and Clemmens Lane Park. I’m especially excited about the San Luis Rey River Park, which will connect from the coast to inland San Diego County.

Most importantly, we need to maintain fiscal responsibility. We know there are issues that need to be addressed, but throwing money at them isn’t always the solution. We need to continue to have strong reserves as the County of San Diego has always done. I hope everyone has a safe and Happy New Year and I’ll check in with you all in 2020!

Historically Speaking by Tom Morrow

The Man Who Put America on Wheels

If ever there was a story deserving of a Hollywood movie, the saga of Henry Ford and his family would be at the top of that list.

Our mission could not be more crucial. The year 2020 marks the 75th anniversary of VJ Day, the official end of World War II. By that date, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs projects that only 299,824 of the 16 million Americans who served in WWII will still be living. In 2019 we have lost nearly 90,000 WWII veterans alone. Sadly, even on Christmas Eve we were notified that one of our Honor Flight San Diego alums, a 101-year-old WWII veteran, had passed away. Our Korean War veterans are only five short years behind our WWII veterans. We are losing many of them as well before they have been recognized for their service in "The Forgotten War." We are so very blessed to have hundreds of WWII and Korean War veterans living in San Diego County. We want to get them on their "Tour of Honor" before it is too late and we need your help. When you choose to donate to an organization, here's why you should think of Honor Flight San Diego: We receive NO government funding so every trip is completely donor funded. We have no employees so every $ we raise goes directly to supporting our mission. The total cost per trip is about $250,000 and we try to do it twice per year - that is a lot of money to raise. Pending funding, we take 80 veterans on this once-in-a-lifetime experience on each trip. Since 2010, we have been fortunate to take over 1,400 veterans on the trip. The veteran travels at no cost to them due to generous donors like you. We figure it is the least we can do to say THANK YOU.

Ford made it known he would pass the company to his son Edsel, yet, to coin a phrase, he never really gave Edsel “the keys to the car.” Despite Edsel being made the president of Ford Motor Co., Henry’s constant criticisms and rejection of ideas helped drive Edsel to an early grave. Examples of his father’s interference: Henry steadfastly believed all Americans really needed was his 1915 Model T. Until later years all Model Ts were painted black. Edsel maintained all owners should have a choice of colors, Henry famously said: “The buyer can have any color he wants as long as it’s black.”

Edsel finally persuaded Henry to introduce the 1927 Model A, and five years later Edsel sold Henry on the 1932 roadster, armed with the V-8 engine, the revolutionary power plant for the future.

Henry Ford

Donate to Honor Flight San Diego - "It was the best weekend of my life!" A WWII veteran told a San Diego reporter about his trip on Honor Flight San Diego.

sial because he was unabashedly antisemitic and said as much in scathing editorials in his weekly Dearborn, Mich., newspaper distributed nationally through his more than 7,000 dealerships. Prior to the outbreak of World War II, he became an isolationist, vehemently railing against America getting involved in any European war. However, war production of bombers added even more wealth to the Ford coffers.

Ford didn’t invent the “horseless carriage,” but he was the first to mass produce gas-powered vehicles. He developed the auto “assembly line,” making it possible to roll out dozens of automobiles each day. Early on, a new Ford Model T costs $700. A few years later, the selling price dropped to $300. Ford’s mass production made it possible so every American could afford a Model T.

With a price nearly every American could afford, cities, counties, states, and the federal government, had to build streets and highways for the thousands of automobiles jamming roadways. Ford was chiefly responsible for connecting the “Lower 48” states and their population centers across America. The Model T, to this day, continues to hold the record of the largest-selling auto of all time.

Edsel Ford

People who never had been more than 25 miles from home were free to venture 35 to 40 miles in little more than an hour. Ford’s vehicles were the basis of a new industrial revolution, employing up to 100,000 workers. He was the undisputed world leader of industry well into the first half of the 20th century. But, as his empire expanded, making him one of the key industrialists who built America, Ford became controver-

There was a mean side to Henry. He was widely known for his pacifism during the first years of World War I, and anti-Jewish diatribes in his newspaper. He alleged the book, “The International Jew,” had an influence in the rise of Adolf Hitler.

Henry was vehemently against union organizers and to stop them he surrounded his factories by a gang of thugs posing as a “security force.” This force was led by Harry Bennett, who gained tremendous influence over the old man, coming between father and son.

Henry never realized the extent of Bennett’s power. In reality, Bennett had control of the company by intimidating executives and workers, shutting Edsel out. Workers could be fired for talking to one another while on the assembly line. For years, unionization was rejected by Henry until Edsel finally gave in to worker demands.

In 1943, Edsel died of stomach cancer, leaving the old man back in charge, but at Bennett’s, continued influence. When World War II started, Henry’s mind was slipping and the company was not meeting Washington’s demand for aircraft, tanks, various other vehicles, and armaments. Realizing the problem, the War Department took grandson Navy Lt. Henry Ford II, off active duty and placed him in charge of the company. One of the first decisions “Hank the Deuce” carried out was to fire Bennett and his thugs. While Henry, his son, Edsel, and three grandsons, Henry II, Benson, and William, all made historic 20th century contributions revolutionizing the American auto industry, the sweeping accomplishments of son Edsel have been all but lost to history.

Like his father, Edsel was a visionary, but unlike Henry, he was mild-manner, gentle, and well-liked. Henry didn’t have any of those traits. Still, Henry Ford was one of the top six builders of America, securing a trademark known around the world. The old man died April 7, 1947, and, today car collectors continue to covet various iconic models of Mustangs, Thunderbirds and, of course, the ’32 roadster.

Holidays and Special Events

We have now completed the 2019 round of holidays and special events . . . but just in case you are not totally exhausted from holiday parties and celebrations, let us revisit a holiday that comes and goes every year but perhaps doesn’t get the attention it once did. We speak of Halloween.

It is almost that time of year again. Mostly little children, although sometimes teenagers, get into the mood of dressing up in their unique costumes of anybody and everybody.

For a few hours, the area in which you live is so saturated with costumed police officers that you wonder if the city is safe. The “regular” cops are probably back at the station playing gin rummy, or twenty-one, hoping that the phone doesn’t ring.

Halloween is when bowls of candy for the little ones who come in their newly-bought superhero garb do a jig to win some candy, or money, or anything else that is supposed to be construed as a prize. Nowadays, antithis, or anti-that groups are ready, willing, and most able to protest that the prizes are lethal and should be forever and for all times be banned. The kiddies don’t understand the political implications of such restraints upon their having a great time, even if it is a school night, and their homework held off until they get back at home.

witch. Just the thought of witches probably drive some would-be revelers from even going around the neighborhood in search of the almighty quarter or the sugarlaced Snickers.

Witches have traditionally been seen standing over boiling liquid, or riding through the sky on brooms, or even today as a suburban housewife. Yes indeed, how the times have changed, and all the evil doers on Halloween have had their civil liberties threatened to the point even they are afraid of going outside to raise havoc. Witches are nothing new. The story of King Saul in the Bible tells of Saul seeking the witch of Endor to summon the spirit of the dead prophet Samuel to help him defeat the Philistines Army. As the story goes, Samuel was awakened by the witch. Samuel prophesizes the death of Saul and his sons. The next day, Saul’s sons died in battle, and Saul committed suicide. If there is a moral to that story it is that you don’t get involved with witches. In the 1400s, witch hysteria really took off. Many witches confessed to acting like, well, witches. Some were executed by burning at the stake or by hanging. Simple women and widows were targeted in specific. In fact, between 1500-1660, some 80,000 suspected witches were put to death in Europe, and especially in Germany. It was just not the best time to be a witch.

And then came along the Salem witch trials in America. The first ones started in 1692, when a 9-year-old, Elizabeth Parris, and an 11-year-old, Abigail Williams, experienced body contortions and uncontrolled screaming. Today, a doctor would have diagnosed them as having been poisoned by a fungus, but in 1692 you had enslaved women being accused of witchcraft and using old black magic. Eighteen people, including six men were put to death by being hung at the Salem Gallows. Witch mania eventually died down, but not

until Grace Sherwood was brought to trial in Virginia in 1706 for killing pigs and hexing cotton. To determine Sherwood’s guilt or innocence of being a witch, her arms and legs were bound, and she was thrown into a body of water. If she sank, she was innocent of being a witch. If she floated, she was guilty. Well. Sherwood did not sink, and was convicted of being a witch. Grace Sherwood was put in prison for eight years. So much for witches and their evil spirits. I was so scared of witches when I walked around my neighborhood on Halloween, that I stuck to something common in St. Louis. Yes, I was a Cardinal baseball player, dressed in my Cardinal uniform, wearing my cap, and wearing my glove. Carrying a baseball bat would have hampered my ability to carry my bag with the loot.

But Halloween lives on for collectors as well. Just take a look at some vintage Halloween movie posters. There was The Mummy in 1932. It held the record for being sold at auction for $453,500 in auction. In today’s market its value would be well over a million dollars. The Dracula horror film poster from 1931 starring Boris Karloff and Bela Lugosi sold in 2017 for $525,000. Other Halloween posters of the movies Frankenstein, Creature from the Black Lagoon, Dracula, Bride of Frankenstein, as well as The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, all fetched large amounts of money at auction. A poster from the 1979 movie Halloween can go for around $1,500. And don’t forget those fairly recent scary movies Carrie and Psycho. Yes, Stephen King and Alfred Hitchcock are never too far away. Enjoy. But be careful little darlings.

Harrison is pet of the week at your Rancho Coastal Humane Society. He’s a 1-1/2 year old, 59 pound, male, Labrador Retriever / Shepherd mix.

Harrison is a big, friendly dog with more energy than he knows what to do with. He needs a family to keep him busy physically and mentally. He was adopted, then returned when his family discovered he needed more attention than they could give.

The $145 adoption fee for Harrison includes medical exams, vaccinations, neuter, and registered microchip. For more information call 760-753-6413, visit Rancho Coastal Humane Society at 389 Requeza Street in Encinitas, or log on to SDpets.org.

Kiki is a 13-year-old cat looking for a new family. She is a sweetheart and loves being around her human friends, but she would prefer to keep all four paws on the ground.

Kiki would be happiest in a home with adults and older, respectful children. Will you give this lovely lady a home to live our her golden years? Her (waived) adoption fee includes her spay, current vaccinations, permanent microchip identification, a certificate for a free veterinary exam and waived enrollment fee for medical insurance from PetFirst.

Kiki is available for adoption at San Diego Humane Society’s Escondido Campus at 3500 Burnet Drive. To learn more about making her part of your family, please call (619) 299-7012.

We have heard much about polarization these days – the Democrats and Republications, ethnic groups, sex genders, churches, religions, and even political secessionist’s movements from parent countries. The absolute polarization is when one side becomes intractable, exclusive, unyielding, not compromising, or even entertaining another idea or position. While a movement or person can have and needs convictions, leaving no room for conversation or input can be stifling and unproductive. Can one side be all right and the other be all wrong? Remember the old adage, “There is something good in the worst of us, and something bad in the best of us.” For instance, have there not been good things done by our President? And are the Democrats all wrong? We can appreciate the need for two

Religiously, too, there is such a need. No progress is made or improvement experienced unless there is an opposing view. Even God seems to have this with good and evil, light and darkness, black and white, and good and bad. When the opposing forces come together, it forces action, resolution, and improvement. It is the adversarial process that produces a better and stronger world. The differences between races, political parties, religions, and even the sexes, can and should contribute to a stronger and better outcome. Even Jesus, in His temptation experience in the wilderness with the devil, was a stronger person for it. He allowed His opponent, the Satan, the right to tempt, exist, and argue his cause. Why? Because He knew life requires these two forces to bring into play a stronger life. We can only go forward, by accepting the opposites the right to exist and participate. We are the stronger, if we allow the battle civilly.

A Weekly Message from the Mayor of Your Community published in the belief that it is important for elected leaders to communicate with their constituents and that constituents have a means of hearing from their elected leaders.

San Marcos • Mayor Rebecca Jones Climate Action Plan Update

The City of San Marcos adopted its Climate Action Plan (CAP) in 2013 which sets targets for Greenhouse (GHG) emissions reductions for years 2020 and 2030. Subsequent to the City’s adoption of its CAP, the State of California adopted SB 32, which sets stricter GHG emission reductions targets for year 2030. The City initiated the CAP update process to be consistent with the State’s requirement.

The main elements of the updated CAP will include: • GHG emissions inventory and projections • GHG reduction targets for year 2030 and measures and actions to achieve the target reductions • A monitoring strategy • A development review checklist and Implementation cost analysis The City held three public workshops in May 2019, to engage the community in the CAP update process. The City is anticipating to release a draft of the updated CAP by January, 2020, and to conduct formal Planning Commission and City Council hearings in Spring 2020 for its adoption. Partial funding for the CAP update is provided through SANDAG’s Energy Roadmap Program.

Escondido • Mayor Paul “Mac” Mcnamara Greetings Escondido,

First, I want to wish everyone a Happy New Year. I hope the holidays passed well for you and your family.

As you might imagine, I attended a number of holiday events of organizations who serve the community, and was aware of many others. It remains impressive how many people in our city do so much for others. I was made aware of so many incidents where people just came through for others who were struggling during the holiday season. I wish I had more space to list them all. I realize that we have challenges ahead of us in this new year. But I can’t help but feel positive about the eventual outcome. Why, because we live in a community that works together and believes we can make a difference.

I know that words are often inadequate, but I think it is important to say thank you to everyone who help make Escondido a great place to live, work, play, and raise a family. Semper Fi, Mac Paul P. McNamara, Mayor of Escondido pmcnamara@escondido.org

Vista • Mayor Judy Ritter

Happy New Year!

Best wishes for a prosperous, healthy and happy 2020. The Vista community should take great pride in the accomplishments of the past year. Our progress continues to be the result of a collective effort on the part of our elected officials, residents, business leaders, city staff, community partners, and many volunteers. As a community we have accomplished a lot. Our arterial roads are in good shape, providing safe, smooth driving and we have been and will continue to focus our street funds on residential roads; our $11 million investment in our park infrastructure is providing added recreational and outdoor activities; and we are making progress on reducing traffic congestion around town. For instance, last week the new right turn lane on Civic Center Drive and Postal Way was opened to reduce traffic at the intersection. The Paseo Santa Fe Improvements to revitalize S. Santa Fe Avenue is taking shape and this year the project will be extended to Civic Center Drive. May this New Year bring continued prosperity to our country, state and especially to our city. Thank you to our residents, businesses, and visitors for being part of the community. Happy New Year!

Chuckles Cont. from Page 6

funny way with only his middle finger stuck up in the air. I asked my young teenage grandson in the back seat what that meant.

He said it was probably a Hawaiian good luck sign or something.

Well, I have never met anyone from Hawaii , so I leaned out the window and gave him the good luck sign right back. My grandson burst out laughing.

Why even he was enjoying this religious experience!!

A couple of the people were so caught up in the joy of the moment that they got out of their cars and started walking towards me. I bet they wanted to pray or ask what church I attended, but this is when I noticed the light had changed. So, grinning, I waved at all my brothers and sisters, and drove on through the intersection.

I noticed that I was the only car that got through the intersection before the light changed again and felt kind of sad that I had to leave them after all the love we had shared. So I slowed the car down, leaned out the window and gave them all the Hawaiian good luck sign one last time as I drove away. Praise the Lord for such wonderful folks!! Will write again soon, Love, Grandma

These questions about Australia were posted on an Australian Tourism website. Obviously the answers came from fellow Aussies.....just trying to help: Q: Does it ever get windy in Australia? I have never seen it rain on TV, so how do the plants grow? (UK) A: We import all plants fully grown and then just sit around watching them die. Q: Will I be able to see kangaroos in the street? (USA) A: Depends how much you've been drinking. Q: I want to walk from Perth to Sydney - can I follow the railroad tracks? (Sweden) A: Sure, it's only three thousand miles, take lots of water... Q: Are there any ATMs (cash machines) in Australia? Can you send me a list of them in Brisbane, Cairns, Townsville and Hervey Bay? (UK) A: What did your last slave die of? Q: Can you give me some information about hippo racing in Australia? (USA) A: A-fri-ca is the big triangle shaped continent south of Europe. Aus-tra-lia is that big island in the middle of the Pacific which does

not... oh forget it. Sure, the hippo racing is every Tuesday night in Kings Cross. Come naked. Q: Which direction is north in Australia? (USA) A: Face south and then turn 90 degrees. Contact us when you get here and we'll send the rest of the directions. Q: Can I bring cutlery into Australia? (UK) A: Why? Just use your fingers like we do. Q: Can you send me the Vienna Boys' Choir schedule? (USA) A: Aus-tri-a is that quaint little country bordering Ger-man-y, which is...oh forget it. Sure, the Vienna Boys Choir plays every Tuesday night in Kings Cross, straight after the hippo races. Come naked. Q: Do you have perfume in Australia? (France) A: No, WE don't stink. Q: I have developed a new product that is the fountain of youth. Can you tell me where I can sell it in Australia? (USA) A: Anywhere significant numbers of Americans gather. Q: Can I wear high heels in Australia? (UK) A: You are a British politician, right? Q: Can you tell me the regions in Tasmania where the female population is smaller than the male population? (Italy) A: Yes, gay nightclubs. Q: Do you celebrate Christmas in Australia? (France) A: Only at Christmas. Q: Are there killer bees in Australia? (Germany) A: Not yet, but for you, we'll import them. Q: Are there supermarkets in Sydney and is milk available all year round? (Germany) A: No, we are a peaceful civilisation of vegan hunter gatherers. Milk is illegal. Q: Please send a list of all doctors in Australia who can dispense rattlesnake serum. (USA) A: Rattlesnakes live in A-meri-ca which is where YOU come from. All Australian snakes are perfectly harmless, can be safely handled and make good pets. Q: I have a question about a famous animal in Australia, but I forget its name. It's a kind of bear and lives in trees.(USA) A: It's called a Drop Bear. They are so called because they drop out of gum trees and eat the brains of anyone walking underneath them. You can scare them off by spraying yourself with human urine before you go out walking. Q: I was in Australia in 1969 on R+R, and I want to contact the girl I dated while I was staying in Kings Cross. Can you help? (USA) A: Yes, and you will still have to pay her by the hour. Q: Will I be able to speek English most places I go? (USA) A: Yes, but you'll have to learn it first.

Am attaching a piece authored by a writer from the St. Louis Post Dispatch. Thought you’d enjoy it. Am certain the writer took liberties

in publishing, but it mirrors Yogispeak to utter perfection: ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH 05/27/2007

Deadlines being what they are for this Sunday column, this essayist missed a momentous occasion recently. Yogi Berra accepted an honorary degree from St. Louis University and delivered the commencement speech for 1,900 graduates and 10,000 in attendance at Scottrade Center It's hard to imagine a more promising lingual event. Berra is to vocal communication what Don Cherry is to the fashion industry. Yogi doesn't so much command the English language as he corkscrews it. It is part of what makes the baseball Hall of Famer and pride of the Hill one of America 's endearing figures. So here is, in its entirety, Yogi's dissertation:

"Thank you all for being here tonight. I know this is a busy time of year, and if you weren't here, you could probably be somewhere else. I especially want to thank the administration at St. Louis University for making this day necessary. It is an honor to receive this honorary degree.

Is wonderful to be here in St. Louis and to visit the old neighborhood. I haven't been back since the last time I was here. Everything looks the same, only different. Of course, things in the past are never as they used to be. Before I speak, I have something I'd like to say. As you may know, I never went to college, or high school for that matter. To be honest, I'm not much of a public speaker, so I will try to keep this short as long as I can. As I look out upon all of the young people here tonight, there are a number of words of wisdom I might depart. But I think the most irrelevant piece of advice I can pass along is this: The most important things in life are the things that are least important.

I could have gone a number of directions in my life. Growing up on the Hill, I could have opened a restaurant or a bakery. But the more time I spent in places like that, the less time I wanted to spend there. I knew that if I wanted to play baseball, I was going to have to play baseball. My childhood friend, Joe Garagiola , also became a bigleague ballplayer, as did my son, Dale I think you'll find the similarities in our careers are quite different. You're probably wondering, how does a kid from the Hill become a New York Yankee and get in the Hall of Fame? Well, let me tell you something, if it was easy nobody

would do it. Nothing is impossible until you make it possible.

Of course, times were different. To be honest, I was born at an early age. Things are much more confiscated now. It seems like a nickel ain't worth a dime anymore. But let me tell you, if the world was perfect, it wouldn't be. Even Napoleon had his Watergate. You'll make some wrong mistakes along the way, but only the wrong survive. Never put off until tomorrow what you can't do today. Denial isn't just a river in Europe

Strive for success and remember you won't get what you want unless you want what you get. Some will choose a different path. If they don't want to come along, you can't stop them. Remember, none are so kind as those who will not see.

Keep the faith and follow the Commandments: Do not covet thy neighbor's wife, unless she has nothing else to wear. Treat others before you treat yourself. As Franklin Eleanor Roosevelt once said, 'The only thing you have to fear is beer itself.' Hold on to your integrity, ladies and gentlemen. It's the one thing you really need to have; if you don't have it, that's why you need it. Work hard to reach your goals, and if you can't reach them, use a ladder. There may come a day when you get hurt and have to miss work. Don't worry, it won't hurt to miss work.

Over the years, I have realized that baseball is really just a menopause for life. We all have limitations, but we also know limitation is the greatest form of flattery. Beauty is in the eyes of Jim Holder Half the lies you hear won't be true, and half the things you say, you won't ever say.

As parents you'll want to give your children all the things you didn't have. But don't buy them an encyclopedia, make them walk to school like you did. Teach them to have respect for others, especially the police. They are not here to create disorder, they are here to preserve it. Throughout my career, I found good things always came in pairs of three. There will be times when you are an overwhelming underdog. Give 100 percent to everything you do, and when that's not enough, give everything you have left 'Winning isn't everything, but it's better than rheumatism.' I think Guy Lombardo said that. Finally, dear graduates and friends, cherish this moment; it is a memory you will never forget. You have your entire future ahead of you. Good luck and Bob's speed."

'In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American ... There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag ... We have room for but one language here, and that is the English ... And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.'
