A grandson of slaves, a boy was born in a poor neighborhood of New Orleans known variously as the “Back of Town, The Battlefield, and Storyville.” His father, William, (1881–1922), abandoned the family when the child was an infant, His mother, Mary "Mayann" Albert (1886–1927), became a prostitute and the boy and his sister Beatrice Armstrong Collins (1903–1987), had to live with their grandmother, Josephine Armstrong. Early in life he proved to be gifted for music and with three other kids he sang in the streets of New Orleans. His first gains were the coins that were thrown to them.

A Jewish family, Karnofsky, who had immigrated from Lithuania to the USA had pity for the 7year-old boy and brought him into their home. Initially given ‘work’ in the house, to feed this hungry child. There he remained and slept in this Jewish families home where, for the first time in his life he was treated with kindness and tenderness. When he went to bed, Mrs. Karnovsky sang him a Russian lullaby that he would sing with her.

Later, he learned to sing and play several Russian and Jewish songs. Over time, this boy became the adopted son of this family. The Karnofskys gave him five dollars to buy his first musical instrument, a cornet; as was the custom in the Jewish families. They sincerely admired his musical talent. Because they were Jewish, as a gesture of gratitude for their generosity the boy wore a Star of David around his neck for the rest of his life. Thus they inadvertently contributed to American culture — and earned at least a measure of immortality. Later, when the boy became a famous musician and composer, he used these Jewish melodies he had learned as a child in compositions, such as St. James Infirmary and Go Down Moses. While there’s no official record that the Karnofskys ever adopted the child, Stanley Karnow said that his family felt “somehow related” to him, but that doesn’t mean they adopted him.

Sometime within this time frame he was sent to the Fisk School for Boys, where he most likely had early exposure to music. He brought in some money as a paperboy and also by finding discarded food and selling it to restaurants, but it was not

enough to keep his mother from prostitution. He hung out in dance halls close to home, where he observed everything from licentious dancing to the quadrille. For extra money he also hauled coal to Storyville, and listened to the bands playing in the brothels and dance halls, especially Pete Lala's, where Joe "King" Oliver performed as well as other famous musicians who would drop in to jam. He was sent to this school after he got in trouble for shooting a gun in the air on New Years Eve 1912, according to Biography.com:

“There, he received musical instruction on the cornet and fell in love with music. In 1914, the home released him, and he immediately began dreaming of a life making music. While he still had to work odd jobs selling newspapers and hauling coal to the city’s famed red-light district, he began earning a reputation as a fine blues player. After dropping out of the Fisk School at age eleven, Armstrong joined a quartet of boys who sang in the streets for money. He also started to get into trouble. Cornet player Bunk Johnson said he taught Armstrong (then 11) to

play by ear at Dago Tony's Tonk in New Orleans, although in his later years Armstrong gave the credit to Oliver. Armstrong hardly looked back at his youth as the worst of times but drew inspiration from it instead: "Every time I close my eyes blowing that trumpet of mine—I look right in the heart of good old New Orleans ... It has given me something to live for."

One of the greatest cornet players in town, Joe ‘King’ Oliver, began acting as a mentor to the young Armstrong, showing him pointers on the horn and occasionally using him as a sub. The little black boy grew up and wrote a book about this Jewish family who had adopted him in 1907. In memory of this family and until the end of his life, he wore a star of David and said that in this family he had learned “how to live real life and determination.” Today, the entire world recognizes his name. This little boy was called Louis “Satchmo” Armstrong.

Louis Armstrong proudly spoke fluent Yiddish.

Later, in 1949, Marion Karnofsky (now Karno), stood on Rampart Street in New Orleans with his father, Myer, outside their family’s HK Department Store. There they watched the Zulu parade—a mostly African-American procession held every year on Mardi Gras. There were four floats, each with a big band between them. On one stood Louis Armstrong, by then among the most famous jazz musicians in America and king of the parade. Armstrong recognized Myer immediately and quickly jumped off his float to greet him. Everyone in the parade yelled at him to get back on the float, but it didn’t matter.

“It’s not like they’ll leave without me!” Armstrong said. The two men ran off to the back of the store, drank Jax Beer and reminisced. Armstrong would, of course, later hop back on his float. At the time, Marion didn’t know who this man was—he was 10

years old and had only heard about him from his father. But today, this moment sticks in his memory. It brought to life the stories he’d heard about the man, Louis “Satchmo” Armstrong, his family helped raise—unknowingly affecting the course of jazz history. This is how Myer and Louis met. Myer, then 18 and the son of Lithuanian-Jewish immigrants, sold coal and matches in the Red Light District and the Irish Channel—both dicey neighborhoods. The fact that Myer was white and Armstrong black was considered mutually beneficial— depending on which neighborhood they were traveling through. Still, at that time, their partnership was unusual.

This is not to say that the Jewish and African-American communities didn’t have a relationship. Because of the proximity of their neighborhoods and the level of discrimination they both faced, there was a working relationship. But it wasn’t just about work. Armstrong’s close personal connection with the Karnofskys was atypical. “His relationship with them was kind of special,” says Bruce Raeburn, a Tulane University professor and author of New Orleans Style and the Writing of American Jazz History. “[The Karnofskys] didn’t just work with him, they took interest in him.” Race was secondary.

You will know that you are getting near the hotel, because you will go round the bend. The manager will await you in the entrance hall. He always tries

those days, Jews weren’t generally considered “white.” “They were Jews,” says Marion’s brother, Jacob, of his family’s involvement with Armstrong. “They didn’t really feel the need to discriminate.”

As time went on, Armstrong not only became close with Myer but with his whole family. He eventually ended up staying at the Karnofsky house and later recalled singing a song called “Russian Lullaby” with the family and feeling very connected to Jewish music and the Jewish experience. In 1950, he recorded a song with the same name—his own riff on the childhood lullaby.

Because they were closer in age, Armstrong became very close with Myer’s brother Morris, who was known as a bit of a troublemaker. A few times, Morris Karnofsky and Armstrong got in trouble with the police for shooting off fireworks. Armstrong nearly drowned trying to retrieve Morris’ father’s horse from the middle of a river. But Morris had a positive influence on Armstrong as well. They drove a cart around together, and the two of them would collect junk to either keep or sell to earn money. A few years later, Morris lent Armstrong $5 to buy his first cornet—launching him on his fated career path. Morris’ life was affected as well, and he later opened Morris Music, a record and instrument store located on Rampart Street. It had a reputation for having the best music and was also a place where musicians (including Armstrong) would

hang out and jam.

“It wasn’t thought of as part of jazz history when it came to [Louis] working with my family,” said Jacob Karno. “Louis was just trying to make ends meet.”

Armstrong’s Jewish connection would stay with him until his death in 1971. As a sign of respect to his adopted Jewish family, he wore a Star of David around his neck. He also had a mezuzah, spoke fluent Yiddish and was said to have loved matzah.

Louis Armstrong, in July 1954 in Chicago, wearing a Star of David around his neck while recording one of his most famous albums, “Louis Armstrong Plays W. C. Handy.”

The Karnofskys had a lasting influence on him. In 1969, Armstrong wrote a long essay detailing his Jewish connection. It was called “Louis Armstrong + the Jewish Family in New Orleans, La., the Year of 1907.” He wrote of his admiration for the family’s work ethic, which he felt was representative of Jewish culture. This admiration carried over to

The Karnofskys, who had a junk hauling business and had given him odd jobs, took him in and treated him like family and, who, knowing he lived without a father, fed and nurtured him, were to become instrumental in the formation of his lifelong loyalty to the family and the Jewish culture in general.

He later wrote a memoir of his relationship with the Karnofskys titled, Louis Armstrong + the Jewish Family in New Orleans, La., the Year of 1907. In it he describes his discovery that this family was also subject to discrimination by "other white folks" nationalities who felt that they were better than the Jewish race... "I was only seven years old but I could easily see the ungodly treatment that the White Folks were handing the poor Jewish family whom I worked for." The influence of Karnofsky is remembered in New Orleans by the Karnofsky Project, a non-profit organization dedicated to accepting donated musical instruments to "put them into the hands of an eager child who could not otherwise take part in a wonderful learning experience."

The others, all Scandinavians, went back as far as 1526. I have since visited both Denmark and Norway and, in Norway, met my contemporary cousins. I ran into one roadblock in the Davis history that I could not get past; finally, I threw up my hands in frustration and tossed in the towel. I gave up further studies of genealogy. Not before, however, learning of a fascinating character in my ancestral past. My great-great uncle, Pasquale Davis, was hanged for horse stealing and train robbery in Minnesota in 1889.

The only known photograph of Pasquale shows him standing on the gallows in Minnesota territory:

Armstrong’s relationship with Jews in general. Not only did he have a close relationship with Joe Glaser, his Jewish manager and later his business partner, but in that same essay, he wrote, “I will love the Jewish people, all of my life.”

Armstrong developed his cornet playing skills by playing in the band of the New Orleans Home for Colored Waifs, where he had been sent multiple times for general delinquency, most notably for firing his stepfather's pistol into the air at a New Year's Eve celebration, as police records confirm. Professor Peter Davis (who frequently appeared at the home at the request of its administrator, Captain Joseph Jones) instilled discipline in and provided musical training to the otherwise selftaught Armstrong. Eventually, Davis made Armstrong the band leader. The home band played around New Orleans and the thirteen-year-old Louis began to draw attention by his cornet playing, starting him on a musical career. At fourteen he was released from the home, living again with his father and new step-mother, Gertrude, and then back with his mother and thus back to the streets and their temptations. Armstrong got his first dance hall job at Henry Ponce's where Black Benny became his protector and guide. He hauled coal by day and played his cornet at night. On March 19, 1918, at the age of 16, Louis married Daisy Parker, a prostitute from Gretna, Louisiana. They adopted a 3-yearold boy, Clarence Armstrong, whose mother, Louis' cousin Flora, died soon after giving birth. Clarence Armstrong was mentally disabled (the result of a head injury at an early age) and Louis would spend the rest of his life taking care of him. Louis' marriage to Parker failed quickly and they separated in 1923.

On February 4, 1924, Louis married Lil Hardin Armstrong, who was Oliver's pianist and had also divorced her first spouse only a few years earlier. His second wife was instrumental in developing his career, but in the late 1920s Hardin and Louis grew apart. They separated in 1931 and

Senior Anglers to Meet on Friday, January 8th - The Senior Anglers Club of Escondido will meet this Friday, January 8th, at 9:30am, at the Park Avenue Community Center, 210 Park Ave, Escondido. This energetic over-50 crowd of men and women participate in fresh and saltwater fishing, youth trout derbies, picnics, about eight RV campouts each year, and other community service events. Meetings are free and guests are always welcome. Shirts and shoes are required. This meeting will feature member Ron Parker,

divorced in 1938, after which Louis married longtime girlfriend Alpha Smith. His marriage to his third wife lasted four years, and they divorced in 1942. Louis then married Lucille Wilson, a singer at the Cotton Club, to whom he was married until his death in 1971.

Armstrong's marriages never produced any offspring, though he loved children. However, in December 2012, 57-year-old Sharon Preston-Folta claimed to be his daughter, from a 1950s affair between Armstrong and Lucille "Sweets" Preston, a dancer at the Cotton Club. In a 1955 letter to his manager, Joe Glaser, Armstrong affirmed his belief that Preston's newborn baby was his daughter, and ordered Glaser to pay a monthly allowance of $400 to mother and child.

Armstrong played in the city's frequent brass band parades and listened to older musicians every chance he got, learning from Bunk Johnson, Buddy Petit, Kid Ory, and above all, Joe "King" Oliver, who acted as a mentor and father figure to the young musician. Later, he played in brass bands and riverboats of New Orleans, and began traveling with the wellregarded band of Fate Marable, which toured on a steamboat up and down the Mississippi River. He described his time with Marable as "going to the University," since it gave him a much wider experience working with written arrangements.

In 1919, Joe Oliver decided to go north and resigned his position in Kid Ory's band; Armstrong replaced him. He also became second trumpet for the Tuxedo Brass Band, a society band.

Through all his riverboat experience Armstrong's musicianship began to mature and expand. At twenty, he could read music and started to be featured in extended trumpet solos, one of the first jazz men to do this, injecting his own personality and style into his solo turns. He had learned how to cre-

ate a unique sound and also started using singing and patter in his performances. In 1922, Armstrong joined the exodus to Chicago, where he had been invited by his mentor, Joe "King" Oliver, to join his Creole Jazz Band and where he could make a sufficient income so that he no longer needed to supplement his music with day labor jobs. It was a boom time in Chicago and though race relations were poor, the city was teeming with jobs available also for black people, who were making good wages in factories and had plenty to spend on entertainment. Oliver's band was among the most influential jazz bands in Chicago in the early 1920s, at a time when Chicago was the center of the jazz universe. Armstrong lived luxuriously in Chicago, in his own apartment with his own private bath (his first). Excited as he was to be in Chicago, he began his career-long pastime of writing nostalgic letters to friends in New Orleans. As Armstrong's reputation grew, he was challenged to "cutting contests" by hornmen trying to displace the new phenomenon, who could blow two hundred high Cs in a row. Armstrong made his first recordings on the Gennett

School of Law. The DAR is open to any female 18 years of age or older who is lineally descended from a patriot who assisted in some way in America’s fight for independence in the Revolutionary War. For more info, visit santamargarita.californiadar.org.

and Okeh labels (jazz records were starting to boom across the country), including taking some solos and breaks, while playing second cornet in Oliver's band in 1923. At this time, he met Hoagy Carmichael (with whom he would collaborate later) who was introduced by friend Bix Beiderbecke, who now had his own Chicago band.

Armstrong enjoyed working with Oliver, but Louis' second wife, pianist Lil Hardin Armstrong, urged him to seek more prominent billing and develop his newer style away from the influence of Oliver. Armstrong took the advice of his wife and left Oliver's band. For a year Armstrong played in Fletcher Henderson's band in New York on many recordings. After playing in New York, Armstrong returned to Chicago, playing in large orchestras; there he created his most important early recordings. Lil had her husband play classical music in church concerts to broaden his skill and improve his solo play

Why would he even want to put on a nail polish that he knew would probably bubble and peel? Why would he risk losing a long time patron over such a minor issue, which could easily have been remedied.

Alliance for Regional Solutions Event – Volunteers are needed for the Annual Homeless Census—Point in Time Count scheduled for January 29th. Addressing, alleviating and preventing homelessness requires a clear understanding of our homeless population and the circumstances they are in. Who are our homeless? How many people are we talking about? Where are they? What are the factors that led to their homelessness? And what barriers to being housed are they currently facing? Answers to these questions provide the basis for developing sustainable solutions. The Regional Task Force on the Homeless (RTFH) collaborates with local community groups throughout San Diego County to conduct the annual Count, known as WeALLCount, which enables our region to better understand the scope, impact and potential solutions to homelessness; and empowers our community to qualify for funding essential to addressing the issue. The RTFH is seeking volunteers for both: Count Volunteers – to count unsheltered homeless persons, January 29 (4am-7am) (teams of 2 or 3); and Interview Volunteers to con-

Looking forward to a productive New Year

The first half of the 2015-2016 legislative session is now history. As we move forward, challenges remain and contentious debate about many issues is likely. Even so, there is hope for a constructive year. Fortunately, there seems to be a growing consensus among the newer members that California’s economic problems cannot be solved by everincreasing taxation, more stringent regulations, and overbearing centralized control from Sacramento.

Last year a group of moderate, pro-business Democrats joined with Republicans to block all tax increase proposals, including two proposed constitutional amendments that would have seriously undermined Proposition 13 protections for California’s hard working taxpayers. In addition, most of the “job killer” bills identified by the California Chamber of Commerce were blocked or defeated. While the state’s general fund operating budget is balanced,

largely as a result of the slowly improving economy and temporary tax increases that are beginning to expire, our unfunded state debt is still in the hundreds of billions of dollars. Many basic state needs, including programs for the disabled, highway infrastructure upgrades and Medi-Cal remain seriously underfunded. These issues, largely ignored during the regular budgeting process last year, were pushed off into special sessions, with no appreciable result.

In addition, the debate about inequitable enforcement of drought mandates in this region, and badly needed upgrades for the state’s increasingly inadequate water infrastructure are likely to continue, regardless of El Niño’s impact. Looking forward, it is my hope that this year the growing bipartisanship exhibited during 2015 will be extended to these issues, arguably the most pressing facing our state, so that they can be resolved for the benefit of all Californians.

in office. I mean, when you think about what we've done in so short a time, it makes your head spin. The historians are already saying I'm the greatest president of all time. Well, one historian. I think he was a historian. The point is, we've made America great again! By the way, on the drive over, I get a call from my accountant. He tells me my net worth has gone up another $1.7 billion since I took office. Like I need it, right? So Trump is not only making America great again, he's making himself richer. Go figure.

Let's start with the domestic side. We've had so many great achievements in the domestic arena, so many great victories. I mean, I always knew I'd be good at the domestic, but even I didn't think I'd be this good. Now, I know what the media are saying — the media are so lame, such a bunch of losers — they keep harping on how none of the things I promised in the campaign has even gotten out of committee. Listen, that's called negotiation and I invented it, OK? Read "The Art of the Deal" — preferably in hardcover. And when I say "read it," I do mean buy it; the library's for dummies. Anyway, trust me, it's all going to happen, and it's going to be so terrific, you won't believe it. It's all good. The entire world is terrified of us, including our allies, and that's how it should be.

Of course the media don't report the tremendous progress we're making on the wall. I'm telling you that is going to be fabulous. I'm going right from here to a meeting to pick out the color of the mortar. And just yesterday I was on the phone with John Lasseter, the big guy at Pixar; they do all those great animated cartoons. John's a good friend of mine, good guy, big Trump fan, and I think I may let him do the artwork on the wall. The American side. Let the Mexicans do their own stuff, right? Cover it with hubcaps — whatever they want.

Oh, I hear some boos from the loser side of the aisle. You lost the election, OK? Trump, 320 electoral votes; Hillary, did she even carry her home state? Give me a break. I tried to warn her — told her she had to do something about her face if she wanted a shot — but she wouldn't listen.

OK, let's turn to foreign policy. Wow! How does it feel to be the most powerful country in the world again? It's good, right? I told you you'd like winning. OK, maybe we've ruffled some feathers in the process. So

what? I stand by those tweets. Iran's Ayatollah does look like he buys his outfits at Bed Bath & Beyond. Angela Merkel is a bimbo. And the gross national product of Zimbabwe is less than what I carry in my change pocket.

It's all good. The entire world is terrified of us, including our allies, and that's how it should be. Putin and I have a terrific relationship. Turns out, by the way, he's a big fan of "Celebrity Apprentice." He says it's not nearly as good with Arnold, but I'll leave that to others to debate, even though the ratings are way down since I left. Now I have to be completely honest with you. It's not all good news overseas. Hamas does not want to give up those hostages. Sorry — I meant Hezbollah. And we have suffered some setbacks in the fight to take over the ISIS oil fields. That's not going exactly as planned. But there has been progress. I can report to you tonight that ISIS has tentatively agreed to let me build a fabulous world-class Trump Golf Course and Resort in the new caliphate. So, to wrap things up, I've been very successful. Everything's spectacular domestically, foreign affairs are wonderful, and America's great again.

Thank you, you've been terrific. They tell me this is the largest crowd ever to attend one of these. Good night.

Benedict Arnold: America’s First Traitor

Most Americans have heard the name “Benedict Arnold,” usually in a disparaging manner. He was a businessman turned Continental Army officer, serving in America’s Revolutionary War. The problem was he jumped ships to join the British.

Arnold originally fought with distinction and valor for the Continental Army, but when he thought he was being unfairly mistreated as a hero of the Revolution, he defected to the British Army. Born in Connecticut, Arnold was a merchant operating ships on the Atlantic Ocean when the

war broke out in 1775. After joining the Army, he was commissioned a captain and rose through the ranks as he distinguished himself through acts of intelligence and valor. Arnold’s actions included leadership and bravery in the battles at Montreal and Quebec. Also during the capture of Fort Ticonderoga in 1775.

He was promoted to major general and participated in operations and action during the pivotal Battles of Saratoga in 1777. Despite Arnold's successes, he was passed over for promotion by the Continental Congress while other officers claimed credit for some of his accomplishments. Adversaries in military and political circles brought charges of corruption or other malfeasance, but most often he was acquitted in formal inquiries. Congress investigated his accounts and found the colonists owed Arnold a lot of money because he spent much of his own money on the war effort. Frustrated and bitter at this, as well the alliance with France and failure of Congress to accept Britain's 1778 proposal to grant full self-governance in the colonies, Arnold decided to change sides and opened secret negotiations with the British. In July 1780, he was offered, continued to pursue and was awarded command of West Point (then a Continental Army fortress guarding the Hudson River). Arnold's scheme to surrender the fort to the British was exposed when American forces captured British Major John André, who was carrying papers that revealed the plot. Upon learning of André's capture, Arnold fled down the Hudson River to a British ship, narrowly avoiding capture by the forces of George Washington, who had been alerted to the plot.

Arnold received a commission as a brigadier general in the British Army, an annual pension of £360, and a lump sum of over £6,000. He led British forces on raids in Virginia, and against New London and Groton, Connecticut, before the war effectively ended with the American victory at Yorktown.

In the winter of 1782, Arnold moved to London with his second wife, Margaret Shippen Arnold. He was well received by King George III and the Tories, but frowned upon by the Whigs. In 1787, he returned to the merchant business with his sons Richard and Henry in St. John, New Brunswick. He returned to London to settle permanently in 1791, where he died in 1801. Because of the way he changed

and she prodded him into wearing more stylish attire to make him look sharp and to better offset his growing girth. Lil's influence eventually undermined Armstrong's relationship with his mentor, especially concerning his salary and additional moneys that Oliver held back from Armstrong and other band members. Armstrong and Oliver parted amicably in 1924. Shortly afterward, Armstrong received an invitation to go to New York City to play with the Fletcher Henderson Orchestra, the top AfricanAmerican band of the time. Armstrong switched to the trumpet to blend in better with the other musicians in his section. His influence upon Henderson's tenor sax soloist, Coleman Hawkins, can be judged by listening to the records made by the band during this period. Armstrong quickly adapted to the more tightly controlled style of Henderson, playing trumpet and even experimenting with the trombone. The other members quickly took up Armstrong's emotional, expressive pulse. Soon his act included singing and telling tales of New Orleans characters, especially preachers. The Henderson Orchestra was playing in prominent venues for whiteonly patrons, including the famed Roseland Ballroom, featuring the arrangements of Don Redman. Duke Ellington's orchestra would go to Roseland to catch Armstrong's performances and young horn men around town


RUBEN "BUD" NEUHARTH was born June 7, 1918, in Lodi, California, to Karl and Rosina Ackerman Neuharth and died December 31, 2015, at The Lakes senior community in Banning, California.

Ruben, also known as "MAJ" at the Army Navy Academy in Carlsbad was a member of its first graduating class in 1937. He became a successful Chamber of Commerce Executive in the 1940's till the 1970's when he and his wife Nancy joined Glenn Coon's A B C's of Prayer Crusade and traveled throughout the country as volunteers for the next thirty years teaching listeners how to claim God's promises. While established in Chamber of Commerce work, the Neuharth family lived in National City, Inglewood, and Escondido where Ruben was also a faithful member and Elder in the Seventh-day Adventist Churches of

tried in vain to outplay him, splitting their lips in their attempts.

Armstrong returned to Chicago in 1925 due mostly to the urging of his wife, who wanted to pump up Armstrong's career and income. He was content in New York but later would concede that she was right and that the Henderson Orchestra was limiting his artistic growth. In publicity, much to his chagrin, she billed him as "the World's Greatest Trumpet Player."

He began to scat sing (improvised vocal jazz using nonsensical words) and was among the first to record it, on the Hot Five recording "Heebie Jeebies" in 1926. The recording was so popular that the group became the most famous jazz band in the United States, even though they had not performed live to any great extent. Young musicians across the country, black or white, were turned on by Armstrong's new type of jazz.

After separating from Lil, Armstrong started to play at the Sunset Café for Al Capone's associate Joe Glaser in the Carroll Dickerson Orchestra, with Earl Hines on piano, which was soon renamed Louis Armstrong and his Stompers, though Hines was the music director and Glaser managed the orchestra. Hines and Armstrong became fast friends and successful collaborators. Armstrong returned to New York, in 1929, where he played in the pit orchestra of the successful musical Hot Chocolate, an allblack revue written by Andy Razaf and pianist/composer Fats

Inglewood, Escondido, and San Marcos along with managing the Prayer Crusade with the Coon family.

Ruben is survived by three children and their spouses, Gary & Betty/Elizabeth Neuharth of Redlands, Dennis & Claire Neuharth of Chattanooga, Tennessee, and Don & Nancy Neuharth Troyer of Banning, CA. Ruben was preceded in death by son Steven Ruben Neuharth and daughter-in-law Sharilyn (Taylor) Neuharth in 1975 and wife Nancy (Hutchinson) Neuharth in 2010. Ruben and Nancy were married for 74 years. He leaves seven grandchildren, Ray Neuharth, Michele Neuharth Vick, Daniele Neuharth Binder, Rosie Neuharth, Garyadam Neuharth, Stephanie Troyer, and great granddaughter Tiffany Sharon. In his spare time, Ruben blessed his children by publishing two Pacific Press books, Steven Neuharth's "Don't Look Down" by Richard Utt and Nancy Neuharth Troyer's "The Other Side of the Boat" edited by Robert O. Vincent. His last words to his children and all his many friends were a soft but fervent, "Thank you!" It is our prayer that our father Ruben may rest securely in the Everlasting Arms till Jesus comes again!

Waller. He also made a cameo appearance as a vocalist, regularly stealing the show with his rendition of "Ain't Misbehavin," his version of the song becoming his biggest selling record to date.

In the 1930s Armstrong started to work at Connie's Inn in Harlem, chief rival to the Cotton Club, a venue for elaborately staged floor shows, and a front for gangster Dutch Schultz. Armstrong also had considerable success with vocal recordings, including versions of famous songs composed by his old friend Hoagy Carmichael. His 1930s recordings took full advantage of the new RCA ribbon microphone, introduced in 1931, which imparted a characteristic warmth to vocals and immediately became an intrinsic part of the 'crooning' sound of artists like Bing Crosby. Armstrong's famous interpretation of Carmichael's "Stardust" became one of the most successful versions of this song ever recorded, showcasing Armstrong's unique vocal sound and style and his innovative approach to singing songs that had already become standards. Armstrong's radical re-working of Sidney Arodin and Carmichael's "Lazy River" (recorded in 1931) encapsulated many features of his groundbreaking approach to melody and phrasing. In the first verse, he ignores the notated melody entirely and sings as if playing a trumpet solo, pitching most of the first line on a single note and using strongly syncopated phrasing. In the second stanza he breaks into an almost fully improvised melody, which then

evolves into a classic passage of Armstrong "scat singing".

After spending many years on the road, Armstrong settled permanently in Queens, New York in 1943 in contentment with his fourth wife, Lucille.

With the publishers' permission, Armstrong recorded the first American version of "C'est si bon" on June 26, 1950, in New York, with English lyrics by Jerry Seelen. When it was released, the disc garnered worldwide sales. In 1964, he recorded his biggest-selling record, "Hello, Dolly!", a song by Jerry Herman, originally sung by Carol Channing. Armstrong's version remained on the Hot 100 for 22 weeks, longer than any other record produced that year, and went to No. 1 making him, at 62 years, 9 months and 5 days, the oldest person ever to accomplish that feat. In the process, he dislodged the Beatles from the No. 1 position they had occupied for 14 consecutive weeks with three different songs. Armstrong kept up his busy tour schedule until a few years before his death in 1971.

Renowned for his charismatic stage presence and voice almost as much as for his trumpet-playing, Armstrong's influence extends well beyond jazz music, and by the end of his career in the 1960s, he was widely regarded as a profound influence on popular music in general. Armstrong was one of the first truly popular

At the core of the requirement to complete these trainings is a simple concept – public servants are required to serve the public’s interest, not private or names in music.

Armstrong often stated that he was born on July 4, 1900, a date that has been noted in many biographies. Although he died in 1971, it was not until the mid-1980s that his true birth date of August 4, 1901 was discovered by researcher Tad Jones through the examination of baptismal records.

Against his doctor's advice, Armstrong played a two-week engagement in March 1971 at the Waldorf-Astoria's Empire Room, at the end of which he was hospitalized for a heart attack. He was released from the hospital in May, and died of a heart attack in his sleep on July 6, 1971, a month before his 70th birthday.

Angus, a 1-year-old Rat Terrier/Chihuahua mix, is looking for a new best friend. Don’t be fooled by his small frame – this little guy has a huge personality just bursting with love to share with his new family. He is quite shy and will need a person with a lot of patience to build his confidence. Once he feels safe and secure, Angus is an awesome companion. He is friendly with other dogs and would enjoy a home with another confident dog to show him the ropes. He also loves playing chase and tug, going for walks, and curling up on your lap for naps. Angus is looking for an adult only home with lots of love and patience where he can share his love, laughs and loyalty in return.

Angus is available for adoption at San Diego Humane Society’s Escondido Campus at 3450 E. Valley Parkway.

Pastor Richard Huls (Retired) Love January

January is a month to be loved. At least, I love the month. It is named after Janus, the Roman god of doors. The door opens to look backward and forward. One can see the past and look forward to the future.

It is the month to put all the Christmas decorations and tree away – a clean sweep. One can evaluate the gifts received, send thank you cards, find ways to pay off the credit card Christmas charges, and begin planning for the new year. I especially enjoy the month, because of all the seed catalogues filled with pictures of perfect vegetables and fruits

It also is a good month to evaluate one’s life, the past year of unfulfilled resolutions, and set some new realistic goals – lose some weight, get more exercise, change the diet, try some new foods, spend less time in front of the TV, read a good book (even the Bible), make new friends, and shed some unproductive practices of last year. We can even enter the future with speculation and curiosity with such questions as: Who will be our next President? What new technology will we have? Will the rains come? Is global warming real? Will there be peace in the Middle East? Is this the year of the return of Jesus the Christ? Who of our friends and relatives will die – will we? And will we win the lottery?

It is a great month to be alive, even with all of its unknowns. However, there is one “known” -, the faithfulness of God’s steadfast love for all who will receive it.

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 Jim Desmond

ENGAGE San Marcos—stay connected in 2016

On behalf of the City Council and myself, I wish you and your family a happy, healthy and successful 2016.

ABC News Anchor Hugh Downs used to close his 20/20 news program by saying, “We’re in touch, so you be in touch.” That phrase reminds me of my commitment to keep our residents informed. We’re in touch with the latest City happenings, so we can keep you in the news loop. To do this, the City will kick off 2016 with a new communications campaign entitled “ENGAGE San Marcos” designed to increase communication and improve interaction with residents. It centers around two new digital advances – a newly designed website and the addition of an Instagram account to the City’s social

media lineup. Both are slated to launch in February 2016.

The new website, www.san-marcos.net, was crafted after a tremendous amount of research and surveys to help learn which features were most frequently accessed and what the site was lacking. The new site puts the most popular items right up front, making it easier than ever to navigate the site. One of the best ways to get the latest city news is to go to the city website and sign up for “E-Alerts.” When signing up, you can choose to get emergency-related notifications, traffic alerts, news briefs and other City information emailed directly to you in real time. To learn more about ENGAGE San Marcos, visit www.sanmarcos.net/ENGAGE

Vista Welcomes New Fire Chief

The City of Vista welcomes Jeff Hahn as the Fire Department’s newest Chief. Chief Hahn took over the reins after Chief Minnick retired with 34 years of service. Jeff Hahn has served as one of two Deputy Chiefs since 2012 and has 30 years of experience in our City’s Fire Department.

We are looking forward to Chief Hahn continuing the Fire Department’s efforts in building a strong and safe community for our Vista residents. The Vista Fire Department also covers the rural fire district and last year the department responded to over

12,000 calls for service. One noteworthy mention is that in 2010, the Vista Fire Department received its first accreditation with the Commission on Fire Accreditation International (CFAI). This was for meeting criteria established through the CFAI voluntary self-assessment and accreditation program. This prestigious accreditation is recognized as a worldwide measure of excellence in the fire service. Our Vista Fire Department is one of only 148 agencies worldwide to have received this designation and is the only accredited city fire department in San Diego County and is one of only 17 across the state.

Helping Foster Kids – Are you aware that 36% of former foster youth become homeless within 18 months of emancipation? “The biggest challenges for former foster youth? Depression and suicide,” said Luis, a young man, a LifeSpring client from Lifeline. Many people had the opportunity to hear Luis speak this past October at Lifeline’s annual meeting. You know that he is talented, inspiring and driven. If you were honored to hear Luis tell his story you know that there are many families working with Lifeline right now, telling their own stories.

Lifeline is asking the community to support Luis and the thousands of people working with lifeline – overcoming the odds and becoming successful. Your donation to North County Lifeline gives North County San Diego’s youth and families the tools they need to solve their problems and become self-reliant. In Luis’ case he needed a home and consistent, caring support, or, as he recently put it, “familiar faces that stick around.” Will you make a taxdeductible donation today? Your donation today supports kids and families tomorrow. . . and all year long, like Luis and the thousands of clients who turn to Lifeline for help every year.

Festivus for All of Us

In the long running sitcom “Seinfeld,” George Costanza’s ill tempered, cantankerous father, Frank, invented “Festivus” (for the restuvus) as an alternative to the Christmas/Chanukah holiday season. “Festivus” centered on the “Festivus Dinner” with family and friends. According to Frank Costanza, “you gather your friends and family around, and tell them all the ways they’ve disappointed you over the past year.” As Frank glared angrily at the assembled friends and family around the “Festivus Dinner” table he shouted, “I got a lot of problems with you people! And now you're gonna hear about it.” 2015 is gone and looking


Mark Jude Perkins 1957-2015

back we thought we’d take a cue from Frank Costanza and tell our customers “all the ways you’ve disappointed us over the past year.” Now the truth is that our customers don’t really disappoint us when they “screw up.” As a matter of fact, like other service businesses, in part we make a living fixing our customers “screw ups.” But that doesn’t keep us from feeling bad for our customers when they have to spend money fixing problems they could have avoided. So here are some of the common things that folks do or don’t do that cause problems and cost money.

1. Keep an up to date back-up copy of important files. Finding and restoring files that exist only on your sick PC can be costly. 2. Make sure that your back-up system really works. Whether you use The Cloud, a back-up drive, a flash drive or a DVD/CD, don’t assume, check it out. 3. Don’t download Internet “speed up and fix-it” utilities from the WWW unless you know what you are doing. Most eventually do more harm than good and nearly all Internet “warnings” that your PC has a problem are scams. 4. Don’t accept “update” solicitations (Java, Adobe etc). Load updates only from trusted sites. Unsolicited Championship Football Team that played in Charger Stadium. He was also a Champion Heavyweight Wrestler. In addition, he was a California Horseshoe Champion. He was an award winning potter and Surfer.

Mark was a Journeyman Plumber. He loved to fish on the Oceanside Pier. He enjoyed playing his harmonica.

Mark went home to Our Lord on Dec 27, 2015. He suffered from early onset of Alzheimer's. He received the Last Rights of his faith and, he will be interred at the San Luis Rey Mission Cemetery.

Mark was born in Yokosuka Naval Hospital, Yokosuka, Japan .July 1, 1957. Mark lived in North County since 1966 and he graduated from Vista High- Class of 1975.

If you suspect your PC has been infected or hacked, don’t keep running it, things may only get worse. Have it checked out. 8.

They searched her apartment and found evidence that the shooting had taken place inside. The victim ultimately told officers that her boyfriend was showing her a gun when he accidentally shot her. She was taken to a hospital with an injury that wasn’t life-threatening. Police Investigating New Year’s Day Death

A man who was found with injuries to his face and head died on New Year’s Day, and Oceanside police are investigating his death. Officers were called about a man injured in the street on South Coast Highway near Eaton Street about 8:40 p.m. Once there, they found a victim who was about 40 years old. He was taken to a hospital, but died shortly after arriving, police said. Subscribe to The Paper!

Tooth Preservation or Implant Placement

Long term tooth versus implant survival rates

Technological advances in the development of implants to replace "hopeless" or missing teeth along with a high predictability of survival rates has lead to the increasing popularity and clinical success of implants. This could result in the extraction of a person's natural teeth, that are salvageable, on the convenience rather than as a result of a comparative analysis between the survival of a natural tooth and its implant counterpart. Faced with the option of restoring a natural tooth versus extracting it and placing a dental implant, the doctor should take the following as well as others into consideration:

1. Is the tooth or area restorable? 2. Will it be strong? 3. What is the long term prognosis of the tooth vs. implant? 4. Compliance of the individual for maintaining the tooth or implant? 5. Does patient have systemic condition ie. diabetes, heart conditions, periodontal conditions. Also, smoking status. 6. Past experiences with patients tooth loss? 7. Long term survival of individual?

These are just a few factors affecting the patient. Financially, the patient should consider the cost of implants as well. They may not make a lot of difference with a single tooth, but if multiple sites are proposed, the cost factor can go up tremendously. If the tooth is restored in many cases, it can have a survivability that may equal, or even outlast the prognosis of an implant. Implants require good bone to survive, and if the bone is not adequate, additional bone must be provided to the site including bone grafts and/or sinus lifts, etc. This may also add to both the expense and time required to place an implant. After an implant fails, the next step is placing another implant.

Escondido, CA—In a 2002 issue of Neurosurgical Focus, a peerreviewed article was published by a Dr. Michael D. Martin, MD et al. in which the third sentence states: “The disc itself is active tissue that contains significant mechanisms for self-repair.” That article was published by a neurosurgeon and written directly for neurosurgeons.

“The Disc Itself Is Active Tissue...”

So what does that really mean to us? It tells us that the disc itself does have a God-given ability to heal and repair if provided the proper mechanisms for self-healing. There is a specific mechanism inherent in each of the spinal discs called the “pump mechanism of disc nutri-tion” (see Fig 1). When this mechanism is not working properly, the spinal discs will begin to die causing bulges, herniations, and eventually spinal stenosis.

The spinal disc is one of the very few tissues in the body that does not have a direct blood supply for circulation. The only way that the disc gets the circulation of water, oxygen and nutrients for self-repair is via this specific disc pump mechanism. What happens when you decrease cir-culation in any type of tissue, whether it be animal tissue, plant tissue or human tissue? Exactly, it begins to become weak and begins to degenerate.

Symptoms Are NOT The Problem

Now the symptoms of pain, numbness,

Researchers report significantly lower success rates for reimplantation than for the original implant. With a tooth that started in the mouth by nature, if it is restorable, it frequently will last a long time without the amount of bone required by an implant.

There are many things to consider in deciding whether to place an implant versus restoring the tooth. As doctors we have patients come in every day with the idea of removing a tooth and placing an implant. On the other hand, we, as practitioners, have to resist the impulse to automatically go with the patient's wishes look-

brown leaves are the plant’s problem? Of course not, the leaves turning brown is just a condition that is telling you that there is something wrong with the plant. The plant is unhealthy and needs water and nutrients. You could spray paint the leaves green but it just covers up the condition. The underlying problem still exists and will continue to produce brown leaves until you fix the actual problem. and tingling that most experience with bulging, herniated or degenerative discs are NOT the problem. The definition of a symptom: “something that indicates the existence of something else.” It is just like the dashboard of your car telling you that something is wrong (brake lights out, engine needs checked, overheating, etc.) Those lights that appear in your car dash are NOT the problem. You can remove the lights surgically or put a piece of duct tape over the lights but the problem will NOT be fixed...the problem is still present.

ing more thoroughly at the overall results. If the bone is adequate and the natural tooth cannot be restored then the implant is chosen. However, in many cases, the patient is not adequately informed as to the survivability of the proposed implant and it is our responsibility to inform them of situations where the natural tooth may be the better choice in the long term.

extent of your disc damage for only $70. This examination will consist of a detailed neurological evaluation, extensive orthopedic testing, and a detailed analysis of the findings of your evaluation. He will sit down with you and go over your condition with you in complete detail. You will know exactly what is causing all your pain (or other symptoms).

In your spine, when the pump mechanism of disc nutrition fails, the disc will begin to de-generate and become weak. This weakness in the disc is what produces the bulging, herniated, and degenerative discs.

The treatment that is provided at Dr. Heilman’s Spine and Neuropathy Care Center in Escondido is revolutionary and is specifically designed to artificially re-create the pump mechanism in the discs which allows the spinal discs to heal and repair. The best part of the treatment is that it uses no drugs, no injections, and no surgery. Plus it’s painless and many patients relax and fall asleep while undergoing the treatment. The amount of treatment needed to allow the discs to heal and repair varies from person to person and can only be determined after a detailed neurological and orthopedic evaluation. We do NOT accept everyone for treatment and will let you know if we can accept your case for treatment.
