As we proceed into the 2017 New Year it is well for us to pause and look into our rearview mirror to see how this great country of ours evolved with the influx of early immigrants who have shaped, and continue to shape, our great nation today.
In a span of 62 formative years, from 1892 to 1954, over twelve million immigrants entered into the United States through a small, seemingly inconspicuous entry point in New York Harbor known simply as Ellis Island. This doorway provided a golden path for those millions of hopefuls, all with stardust in their eyes and a hope chest full of wistful dreams. And they all passed under the watchful eyes of our beautiful Statue of Liberty (a cherished gift from France in 1886), whose formal name is “Liberty Enlightening the World,” but she also goes by her less formal nickname, “The New Colossus.” However, most of the twelve million newcomers from across the Atlantic Ocean simply called her “Lady Liberty.”
Her very form is a most emotional figure to behold. Broken shackles and chains lie at her feet, with her right foot slightly raised, depicting her moving forward – away from the bonds and oppression of slavery. She stands a full 151 feet in height from her base to the top of her torch and at the time of her dedication, she was the tallest iron structure on Earth. With the pedestal and foundation included in the measurement, her full height is a majestic 305 feet. It has been said that many who first laid eyes upon her dynamic form were quickly overwhelmed with great tears of joy - as if experiencing a home-coming of sorts. Like the Mother of us all, she proclaims to the world a most emotional and timeless cry to come to her; to find home, safety, and refuge within her outstretched arms: “Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free.” Her inscribed words tug at the heartstrings for all who seek shelter, warmth, and safety within her maternal grasp: “Send these, the homeless, tempesttossed to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door.”
One immigrant from Greece remembers seeing her for the very first time in his younger life. He remembers saying in broken English: “Lady, you’re such a beautiful! You opened your arms and you get all the foreigners. Please . . . give me a chance to prove that I am worth it; to do something; to be someone . . . in America.”
The mere sight of her has caused many an immigrant onboard approaching ships to drop to their knees in humble thanks for such a powerful vision of freedom and new life waiting for them. Today, well over 100 million Americans – about one-third of the entire population – can trace their ancestry through

The early immigrants were required to answer 29 questions which included their names, occupations, country of origin, and the amount of money they possessed. It was important for the U. S. Government to know that these new foreign arrivals could support themselves in starting their new lives here and not become a burden to the system. America wanted the immigrants to be self-sufficient. For example, they were required to have between $18 and $25 back in 1907, which was the peak year of immigration with some 1,004,756 processed. For the record, in 1907 $18 is equivalent to $437.55 today, and $25 is equal to $607.71 in today’s currency via inflation since then. About 2% were denied admission to America for various reasons such as contagious diseases, criminal backgrounds, or insufficient currency. In his book, “A Nation of Immigrants,”

President John F. Kennedy wrote, “There were probably as many reasons for coming to America as there were people who came.” Today’s historians are in general agreement that there were three primary reasons for immigrating to America back then: religious persecution, political oppression, and economic hardship. If one were to visit this historic site today, visitors to Ellis Island can relive and share the memories of these oceancrossing immigrants through oral recordings that were made by the immigrants themselves. In the 1970s, the National Park Service began taping memories of these early arrivals, recording the raw emotion and thoughts of surviving immigrants and their country of origin. The result brings the past to the present at a touch of a button. The Ellis Island Oral History Program allows you to visit the museum’s broadcast system to listen to first-hand accounts of a vanishing era from America’s past. At the end of each story, many visitors are found sobbing with emotion. Hearing

the actual voices and recordings of these early Americans can wring the heart of even the most robust listener.
The stories are rich and varied. They echo an earlier America. They are the sound, sights, and beginnings of everything we are today in this vast topographical landscape we now call the United States of America. For the early immigrant arrivals it truly was: The New World. The Ellis Island Oral History Program gives you a headset and all you need do is press a button. Then, in a wink of time, you are immediately transported away to another era; another place; and into another person’s shoes. Your truelife adventure begins through the eyes of an early American.
It was a long, arduous sea journey. A punishing voyage atop an unforgiving sea which often tossed passenger-boats about recklessly and, even, dangerously

at times. But every immigrant on board would not change their place upon these high seas for any other dream than the one they now pursued: the priceless dream of placing their eyes upon the legendary one they simply called “The Lady,” an emotional sobriquet for New York’s Statue of Liberty. The languages on board these immigrant vessels were all different, but the various translations all came out, basically, the same: “Lady Liberty.” Krist Andersen remembers, “I first saw the Statue of Liberty in 1914 and I will never, ever forget her. Arriving from Loiten, Norway, with my mother, paternal grandparents and four older brothers and sisters, we joined my father, a farmer, who was already in Concord (Massachusetts). To this five-year-old little boy, with an immigrant’s tag to be processed through Ellis Island, the very size of the statue meant that I was entering a land of giants!”
Rose Milazzo emigrated from Naples, Italy, in 1901 when she was only a little girl of seven. Old and feeble and in her late 80s at the time of her recording, Rose Milazzo recalls her child-like dream: “We started at Naples and boarded the ship and my last meal was in Naples and I got seasick and didn’t eat another meal until we got to Ellis Island.” With wistful words, Rose no longer is old and frail; she becomes youthful all over again as her voice rises to a youthful level of remembrance, excitement, and joy: “My Mama had funny ideas that if they caught me seasick, they’d throw me overboard, so she hid me from the authorities or even from a doctor which maybe could have helped me a little bit. We used to be pushed around on the top deck because they’d have to clean the steerage where
Give Us This Day Our Daily Chuckle This week, a compendium of wit, wisdom and neat stuff you can tell at parties. Enjoy! The Importance of Walking
Walking can add minutes to your life. This enables you at 85 years old To spend an additional 5 months in a nursing home at $9030 per month. Or $301 per day. ............................................. My grandpa started walking Five miles a day when he was 60. Now he's 97 years old And we don't know where he is. ...................................................... I like long walks, Especially when they are taken By people who annoy me. .......................................................... The only reason I would take up walking is so that I could hear heavy breathing again. ................................................. I have to walk early in the morning, before my brain figures out what I'm doing ... ................................................... I joined a health club last year,
we come from, so it was easy to hide me under a blanket.” As often happens with these recording sessions, Rose is now in another place, another time; her aged eyes and wrinkled face seem to dissolve, miraculously, as her eyes now sparkle and shine with stardust. Her face seems to glow with rediscovered youth, “We spent Christmas on board. I was under the blanket but I could see that they gave out figs and they gave out delicacies that they wouldn’t give out ordinarily.” When the Statute of Liberty finally came into view, little seven-year-old Rose saw her Mama drop to one knee, hang her head, and cross herself (made the sign of the cross). She had never heard her Mama cry before. Yet, there she was, arms around her little girl, gently sobbing and praying softly before the Statue of Liberty. Little Rose Milazzo could only make out a few words from her Mama (translated from Italian): “Thank you dear God for letting me see the Lady Liberty.” Generally, those immigrants who were eventually processed and approved for entry had to spend from two to five hours at Ellis Island. Those with visible health problems or diseases were not allowed and instead, sent back to their respective homeland, or held at the island’s hospital facilities. Over 3,000 would die on Ellis Island while staying at these hospital facilities.
There were other reasons for not allowing entry into the United States. For instance, many unskilled workers were rejected because they were considered, “Likely to become a public charge.” In other words, an unnecessary burden to our system by being evaluated as unable to support themselves or their families. To these foreign immigrants, Ellis Island would become known as “The Island of Tears,” or “Heartbreak Island.”

Every time I hear the dirty word 'exercise', I wash my mouth out with chocolate. .................................................... The advantage of exercising every day is so when you die, they'll say, 'Well, she looks good doesn't she.' ............................................................. If you are going to try cross-country skiing, start with a small country. ...................................................... I know I got a lot of exercise the last few years ... just getting over the hill. ..................................................... We all get heavier as we get older, because there's a lot more information in our heads. That's my story and I'm sticking to it. ..................................................... Every time I start thinking too much about how I look, I just find a Happy Hour and by the time I leave, I look just fine. Homer
Homer, a handsome dude, walked into a sports bar around 9:58 P.M. He sat down next to a blonde at the bar and stared up at the TV.
The 10: 00 news was now on. The news crew was covering a story of a man preparing to jump off a ledge of a tall building. The blonde looked at Homer and said, "Do you think he'll jump?"
Homer said, "You know, I bet he'll
Ellis Island’s entry point, obviously, had to have a number of interpreters for translation purposes. The average number of languages spoken by an interpreter was six, but some were able to speak as many as 12 languages. The record for a single interpreter was 15 languages!
Inspectors at Ellis Island had an unofficial leeway or ‘gray area’ within which they could operate, sometimes allowing them to bend the rules with responsible discretion. In short, they often made “judgment calls” on their own. Such scenarios spelled life-or-death for some early foreign arrivals. Such was the case with Julia Marshall, originally born Juliska Facsali on May 16, 1900 in a small village in northeastern Hungary. Julia was just a little girl when she arrived at Ellis Island with her father, who was a shoemaker, and her mother, a seamstress. It was a very rough crossing over the turbulent ocean. Especially for little Julia, a fragile, tiny girl who clung closely to her Mama and Papa. A most frightening moment came when medical inspectors noticed a sore on the little girl and pulled Julia aside. After examining Julia, the medical inspectors said that the entire family would have to return to their native Hungary. The jolting words of rejection were as if the world had suddenly come crashing down on Julia’s family. The entire ordeal of suffering, torment, and sacrifice in order to realize a true dream . . . all suddenly, broke their spirit. And their hearts. Julia’s mother, feeling helpless and shock, burst into tears and tried to explain the broken human condition she was now in. She begged through a torrent of tears, hands clasped in prayerlike fashion, that she: “Could not survive another day on the water.” Exhausted to the point of near-collapse, Julia’s mother
The blonde replied, "Well, I bet he won't." Homer placed 20 dollars on the bar and said, "You're on!"
Just as the blonde placed her money on the bar, the guy did a swan dive off of the building, falling to his death. The blonde was very upset and handed her 20 dollars to Homer, saying, "Fair's fair. Here's your money." Homer replied, "I can't take your money; I saw this earlier on the 5 o'clock news and knew he would jump."
The blonde replied, "I did too, but I didn't think he'd do it again." Homer took the money.
Advice, as we grow older
As we grow older and wiser, we slowly realize that whether we wear a $300 or $30 watch, they both tell the same time. Whether we carry a $300 or $30 wallet/handbag, the amount of money inside is the same. Whether we drink a bottle of $300 or $10 wine, the hangover is the same.
Whether the house we live in is 300 or 3,000 sq. ft., the loneliness is the same.
finally locked eyes on the authorities, then dropped her head with weary and broken heart. Ordered to return to her native Hungary, something indescribable now impacted the authorities. “The authorities relented, bandaged Julia’s chin, and allowed the family to enter New York City.” (Recording made by Julia’s daughter, Amanda Marshall, June 7, 2009). Four million emigrants left the AustroHungarian Empire to become immigrants in America between 1880 and 1930, each with their own story. Listening to little Julia’s story causes one recent listener to break down in tears at the saga she was hearing on her headphones. The listener responds to the true-life narrative she just heard: “Standing in the Great Hall at Ellis Island well over 100 years later, I realize that Julia’s optimism and clear sense of cultural identity are characteristics shared by millions coming to New York . . . even today.”
That fragile little child, Julia, would have her story preserved in a recording, for all time. Because little Julia would eventually grow up and have a daughter (Amanda Marshall) who would honor her mother with the story you are now reading (and which countless others can hear in its entirety through these historic Ellis Island Oral History recordings.) Though Julia passed away in the year 2000, well into her 80s, that little girl she once was can still be rediscovered -when she was only 7 years old. Her eventual daughter, Amanda, made sure of that. Recording Amanda’s conversation, she talks lovingly of her Mama, named Julia Marshall. When Julia was a tiny girl of seven, she always treasured the shoes that her daddy – who was a

You will realize your true inner happiness does not come from the material things of this world. Whether you fly first or economy class, if the plane goes down, you go down with it.
Whether you fly first or economy class, if the plane reaches its destination, everyone arrives at the same time.
Therefore, I hope you realize when you have mates, buddies and old friends, brothers and sisters, with whom you chat, laugh, talk, sing, talk about north-south-east-west or heaven and earth, that is true happiness! Five Undeniable Facts of Life
1. Don't educate your children to be rich. Educate them to be happy so when they grow up, they will know the value of things, not the price. 2. Best wise words: "Eat your food as your medicines. Otherwise, you have to eat medicines as your food." 3. The one who loves you will never leave you because even if there are 100 reasons to give up, he or she will find one reason to hold on. 4. There is a big difference between a human being and being human. Only a few really understand it. 5. You are loved when you are born. You will be loved when you die. In between, you have to manage!

shoemaker – had made for her. Amanda relates the heartwarming story: “She was always quick to point out that she sailed to America wearing the shoes that her daddy made in Hungary. You see, it was important to her that her very first footsteps – in the New World – would be taken in those shoes. And that they were firmly grounded in the past.” Prior to her death, Julia Marshall, would make occasional trips to meet up with a very close, personal friend she had first met as a little girl. In her later years, Julia would just sit and stare at a woman across the water. Not close up, but the way she forever remembers seeing her: Full form and still with her torch held high in the air. For Julia, she remains the most beautiful sight in New York Harbor. And yet, she cannot say her name without her lips trembling with great emotion: “My . . . Statue of Liberty,” she often whispered. And she meant every word.
There were three types of accommodations on the ships that brought immigrants to America: first class, second class, and steerage. Only steerage passengers were processed at Ellis Island. According to records, the first-and-second-class passengers were “Quickly and courteously ‘inspected’ onboard the ship before being transferred to New York.” For steerage passengers, the ocean travel was a nightmarish ordeal, even deadly: “At one time, the average passenger mortality rate was 10 percent per voyage.”
One official source gives this picture: “The conditions were so crowded, so dismally dark, so unsanitary and so foul-smelling, that they were the single most important cause of America’s early immigration laws.”

Check-in at 11:30am; buffet lunch at 11:45, the meeting at 12noon and concludes at 1pm. Edward Grangetto will be the guest speaker and the title of his presentation is “Tapped Out – A novel Approach to a Sustainable Water Resource.” He is co-founder, with John Burr, of the
In a 1911 special report to President William H. Taft, the United States Immigration Commission, in part, said: “The open deck space reserved for steerage passengers is usually very limited, and situated in the worst part of the ship, subject to the most violent motion.” The report gives other sordid details, “The unattended vomit of the seasick, the odors of not too clean bodies, the reek of food and the awful stench of the nearby toilet rooms make the atmosphere of the steerage such that is a marvel that human flesh can endure it.” Despite these horrific conditions, the immigrants maintained faith and hope for a brighter future in America. From such dark, damp, depressing surroundings, they managed to sing en route, and play cards, dance and, of course, talk. As one immigrant remembers, “There were rehearsals for answering the immigration inspectors’ questions and hour upon hour was spent learning the strange new language.”
The first object to be sceen, and the focus of every immigrant’s attention was the Statue of Liberty. She was confirmed proof that their dreams were within grasp. There was no language barrier to view her; no mistaking her identity; no face was without tears. One German immigrant, now in his 80s, recalls in his own words the first time his eyes fell upon this most majestic woman we call Lady Liberty: “I thought she was one of the Seven Wonders of the World!” A Polish immigrant gave words to his own inner feelings: “The bigness of Mrs. Liberty overcame us. No one spoke a word for she was like a goddess and we know she represented the big, powerful country which was to be our future home.” In one recording, Lawrence Meinwald’s voice begins to crack because he is struggling to find the words to fit his memories of first laying sight on the Statue of

Liberty in 1920, as a little boy. “My father and I dressed and went to the deck. There were people of all denominations, some on their knees making the sign of the cross; Jews in their prayer shawls as we were passing the Statue of Liberty.” At this point of his narrative, it is of no use; Meinwald’s voice fails him and he succumbs to sobbing. He is unable to find further words. Only his crying carries his meaning forward.
We Americans, who are born here, often forget the value of our own country. The worst sin is to take the soil of our birth for granted. Elizabeth Pope is a recent immigrant who reminds us who we truly are, as Americans. And how proud we should all be – for despite our many flaws and errors -- we still, by far, remain the greatest country on Earth. Today, Elizabeth Pope is a writer, living in Portland, Maine. She has just become a naturalized citizen and she is proudly waving her American flag. She had just taken the Oath of Allegiance during a ceremony for new U. S. citizens at the National Archives Museum in Washington, D. C. It is impossible for her to wave the American flag without her eyes welling up with tears. Even today.
There are others. As the swearing-in ceremony concludes with everyone repeating: “So Help Me God,” a sudden transformation bordering the supernatural seems to engulf the newly-assembled Americans. Hiroshi Motomura shouts through tears: “I . . . am . . . an American!!” Hiroshi Motomura became a naturalized American at age 15. He is now a UCLA law professor.
Rebecca Deng remembers that most defining moment in her life when she stepped forward and became a U. S. citizen. At the conclusion of her swear-

ing-in ceremony she seemed in shock, as if in disbelief. Dazed, she slowly broke forth from the fog of her momentary silence: “Wow! I’m an American!!”
Deng talks about her life in her best English: “My name is Rebecca Deng. I’m originally from South Sudan. My birth parents die in the war.” As a 6-year-old, Rebecca Deng was an orphan in search of refuge and love. She found it in America. “In 2006 I become a U. S. citizen. And I’m part of American system now.” What we may often take for granted, is impossible for the once-orphaned, Rebecca. She loves her country, America, more than anything. She now works with refugees. She actively works for the American Bible Society. Her swearing-in ceremony was in Grand Rapids, Michigan. She will never, again, be the person she once was in her native country. She will never again feel she is an orphaned little girl looking to find her way home. When she first became an American, she felt she finally belonged. “I remembered it well because of what the first time I felt like I’m a citizen to a country. I neighbor. I say to myself, I Rebecca Deng, citizen of the United States. I felt really good and it was emotional because I was like ‘wow!’ – for the first time I have a place, a country, home that I’m citizen. I love my home forever, America.” The Statue of Liberty belongs to every American, regardless which entry point you enter into our great country to become a U. S. citizen. Immigrants from Eastern Europe were a huge segment that entered through Ellis Island. It was a mighty current of humanity, reminiscent of Biblical times, such as recorded in Exodus. Between 1905 and 1914, an (average) of one million immi-

The Paper • Page 4 • January 12, 2017 A Flood of Applicants for Oceanside’s City Treasurer Office
Gary Ernst won the elected position of City Treasurer for the city of Oceanside.
Only one problem. Mr. Ernst passed away prior to the election.
The options are for the council to appoint a city treasurer or to hold another election. Anther election would likely cost hundreds of thousands of dollars. Ergo, the council is expected to appoint a city treasurer. To date, there are 11 candidates for theposition, all of whom will be interviewed by the City Council
Applicants as of the Friday afternoon deadline were: Joe Gallagher, operations manager/deputy director of administration at the Camp Pendleton Naval Hospital; Joe Hansen, co-founder of Jaan Biotherapeutics LLC; Randall Horton, former El Centro treasurer and Tri-City Healthcare District director; Judy Hurley, marketing director; Kyle Krahel, director at Groundworks Campaigns; Luis Murguia, no occupation listed; Ward O’Doherty, partner at Signature Resources; Nadine Scott, attorney; Linda Steele, broker/owner at Terra Maris Realty; Dr. Rafe Edward Trickey Jr., principal (semi-retired) at Greater Pacific Planning and Effectiveness Group; and Fred Young, CEO of Perfect Circle Solutions. The City Council is scheduled to interview all the candidates at 2 p.m. Wednesday and could appoint the treasurer at the conclusion of that meeting. If not, the council has until the end of the month to appoint someone, or it is required by state law to schedule a special election for the office.
Joint Funeral for Two Children Killed in Escondido Home Fire
Family, friends and complete strangers attended the joint funeral for five-yearold Elizette Hope Orozco and her uncle, 11-year-old Diego Flores Vidal. The funeral was held in Escondido on January 6. Both died as a result of the fire, Elizette dying December 29th, the day of the fire, and Diego dying a day later, on December 30. It is believed the cause of the fire was an electrical problem associated with the Christmas tree. Controversy Expected at Escondido Council Meeting
At 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, January 11th, it is expected that sparks will fly as a large number of concerned residents from The Springs, a retirement community, business people and citizens in general are expected to protest the city of Escondido’s plan to buld a large recycled water treatment plant at the corner of Washington Avenue and Ash Street. The meeting has been moved to the Mitchell Room at City Hall, 202 N. Broadway, Escondido.
A number of residents and business owners have suggested the plant would be more suited in an industrial location such as the one presently owned by the city. Escondido Mayor Sam Abed is determined that the property should be held for Hi-Tech businesses . . . but no hi-tech businesses have shown any interest in the property. Critics of the city’s plan also point out that by locating the plant in the industrial area the move would avoid promised litigation should the city opt to proceed at
great and noble cause with a lot of mighty fine people to thank for a great effort.
Man About Town
Congrats to the Escondido Rotary Club who held a successful clothing drive to benefit the 1st Annual Stand Down scheduled for this month, January 27th, 28th and 29th. The Rotarians turned out in force on Saturday, January 7th, where they collected the clothes from 8am to noon.
These gently used clothese will go to warm some very deserving men and women who served our country and are now down on their luck.

Escondido has its own hockey team, The San Diego Sabers, who began 2017 tied for fourth place in the Western Division of the WSHL.
The Sabers opened 2017 in Arizona against the Phoenix Knights winning Friday night 4-1, Saturday night 5-2 and completing the sweep with a 12-
the Ash and Washington location; that no zoning changes would be needed at the industrial locations because the zoning would already allow the plant to be built there. Additionally, they argue, the element of time could be cut way back, an important consideration for farmers, all of whom want the water sooner, rather than later. If the council opts for the Ash/Washington location, ensuing litigation will tie up the property and plans for at least a year, probably more, with an uncertain outcome.
A month ago the city’s Planning Commission unanimously approved the city utilities department’s request to build the plant despite objections from people who live in the area, including many elderly residents of a retirement home next door. It is a reverse-osmosis plant that will take water that has already been partially treated at the city’s facility in western Escondido and, using various chemicals, be further desalinated to make it usable for agriculture. The water will then be piped to eastern Escondido and the San Pasqual Valley for use in avocado groves and elsewhere. Farmers have long looked forward to the treated water because the high cost of using potable water on crops makes it difficult to turn a profit. Councilwoman Olga Diaz and an attorney representing more than 100 residents of The Springs of Escondido retirement community, next door to the site, requested the decision be appealed to the council.
Attorney Everett DeLano has urged the council to deny the project “based upon sound principles of land use and in response to services required by the community.” He told the council in a letter the plant will cause a deterioration of bordering land uses and will be detrimental to the com-

Also happy to report that Becky Abbott, wife of San Marcos attorney, Tony Abbott, is on the road to recovery. She still has a couple of health issues and obstacles to overcome . . . but she’s getting the best of care and hopefully will be back home soon.
It might be awhile before she can get active in the kitchen again . . . which is a shame because Becky is probably one of the five best Italian cooks I’ve ever met. Tony and Becky had us as dinner guests one evening and Becky prepared an Italian meal fit for a king.
munity and neighborhood plans previously outlined by the city.
The land currently being used as a public works storage yard — an area the council has hoped would one day turn into a high-tech business park, appears to most critics to be the more logical location.
A number of business owners have suggested the site location could be better used to a higher use by building either low cost housing there . . . or an office complex that could be leased to area non-profits. Former Escondido Mayor Lori Holt Pfeiler, now the CEO for Habitat for Humanity, has expressed interest in partnering with the city to possibly build an office building on the site. Arie de Jong, prominent businessman, investor, and philanthropist, has suggested the property might be able to be sold to investors with a view in mind of building a facility to meet those needs, or, given large amounts of grant money available to non-profits, it might be something they could pursue collectively. “I think Habitat for Humanity, Interfaith Community Services, maybe an Escondido Police Department sub-station - that might be a good mix. A water treatment plant at Washington and Ash would be ugly - not something that would show Escondido in its best light . . . and not something the area residents want or need. It’s a terrible decision to put it there. Put it where it’s already zoned and where plants like that were intended to be placed. It just makes common sense.” The Springs retirement home is located to the east and would be hundreds of feet away. Letters to the Editor?

There was lasagna, spaghetti, more lasagna, more spaghetti . . . Italian sausages . . . more lasagna, more spaghetti. I’ve never eaten so well in my life. I was hopeful that Becky would consider adopting me! Becky was Tony’s office manager and paralegal for many, many years before she finally retired. She’s brilliant, witty, and fun to be around.
Can’t wait to see her put her ailments behind her and come home so we can have a chance to visit with her and laugh again. ••••• Speaking of food and cookery, and I just was, I suffered some discomfiture when I saw a photo on Facebook of some Banana-Nut Bread that Jeri Kaufman had prepared for hubby, Jerry Kaufman, former Escondido Council Member, present member of the Palomar Health District Board, and world class physical therapist. It happens that I LOVE Banana-nut Bread. I also can bake a pretty mean Banana-nut bread myself. Nothing better than a cold glass of milk, two or three, or four or five, slices of banana-nut bread, slathered with healthy doses of butter.
However, I am on a diet and would be unable to eat and enjoy banananut bread utnil I complete my diet. Thus far, I have lost 15 lbs. I only have about 35lbs to go.

Lady Liberty Cont. from Page 3
grants per year arrived into the United States. Immigration officials reviewed and documented over 5,000 immigrants per day during the peak times at Ellis Island. As official records confirm: “Two-thirds of those individuals emigrated from eastern, southern and central Europe.” The all-time daily high occurred on April 17, 1907, when 11,747 immigrants arrived.
There were slices of human drama that paralleled the agony and heartbreak of the movie, “Sophie’s Choice.” For example, if immigrants had any diseases that breached immigration laws, they would be deported: “Sick children age 12 or older were sent back to Europe alone and were released in the port from which they had come. Children younger than 12 had to be accompanied by a parent.” Such scenarios constituted the most tragic and soul-wrenching moments which often caused families members to physically collapse through severe shock because, in such cases, families with a sick child had to decide – on the spot – who would go and who would stay. Adding to the complications were that some healthy little brothers and sisters wanted to stay with their sick siblings, or stay with Daddy while Mommy had to return, alone. It wasn’t all pleasantries. As real life rarely is.
But for most, it was a rarified odyssey which yielded an abundance of new opportunities and whose voyagers help build and sculpt-out the America we see today. Overall, it was a rediscovered life for many who followed their dreams. Estelle Schwartz Belford, a Jewish
Romanian immigrant, recalls her trip in one recording which a visitor is listening to with transfixed attention. Estelle is now talking to him, directly. She is describing her trip back in 1905 when she was only five years old: “My mother was a very, very sensitive person, and all the way through she would make one little mistake in English and people laughed at her and then she wouldn’t say another word.” Five-year-old Estelle never forgot the onboard journey, “It was terrible, the whole trip . . . you didn’t change your clothing every day on board the ship. Once, a few people came down from upstairs and spoke to us children and gave us some candy, the first time that we ever saw any candy or sweets and we were happy to get it!” Through a little girl’s eyes, we were forced to reflect upon our own lives and the precious things we take for granted. Such as a simple piece of food we call candy, a totally unknown luxury for those precious children who came with their parents to America. Even at a young age of five, Estelle still understood that she was poor and different: “And people from first-class would look down at us and they felt sorry for us. And many times they would throw down an orange, or apples or some food, and the children would all stand by, and I remember, this one would catch this, and this one would catch that, and you were lucky enough you’d get something.”
Though still very young in years, the young Jewish girl was mature enough to want to take care of her mother: “And being that my Mama was sick, if it was an orange or so, we’d bring it to her. My Mama had never seen a banana before. None of us ever saw a banana.” Then, it happened.
A most extraordinary moment which would forever chisel itself into the psyche of a precious five-year-old little
Jewish girl. Here is Estelle’s very own description on first seeing the Statue of Liberty, in her very own words: “And then all of a sudden, we heard a big commotion upstairs and we all ran upstairs! We had come to America!! Everybody started yelling and screaming and yelling they see the Lady, the Statue of Liberty!” The unfiltered, raw emotion of her words through the headset are impossible for one to remain a passive listener. Suddenly, we are there, with her every word: “My Mama had gotten out of bed! We all were upstairs and everybody was crying!! Everybody was so excited that you see America and you see the Lady with her hand up!!” Estelle remembers her father, in his flawed English, saying to her mother as they approached the Statue of Liberty: “We’re in America now. You no longer have nothing to be afraid of. Nothing at all.”
However, Estelle’s father would find the New World to be most puzzling at times. In his excellent book, Professor Ronald H. Bayor records profound insight into the sometimes difficult social adjustments as Estelle says, “My father knew very little of the customs of America. When he started working, at the end of the week they gave him his check. And he didn’t know what it was.” It is chronicled that this influx of new arrivals wished to assimilate as Americans so intensely that they often refused to ask too many questions. As author Bayor quotes Estelle, “He (her father) was ashamed to ask because whatever you asked you felt foolish. But he kept it (the check). He thought he was getting a ticket of some kind.” Estelle’s father waited more than a month before finally asking when he would be paid for his employment. Only then did he finally realize “That piece of paper (the check) is really money.” (“Encountering Ellis Island: How European Immigrants Entered America,” book by Professor Ronald H. Bayor, John
Hopkins Univ. Press, 2014.) Professor Bayor’s book remains, to this day, perhaps the best and most concise narrative of immigrant Estelle Schwartz Belford. Regarding that little girl, Estelle Schwartz Belford, she grew up a proud American. She passed away in her 90s. But, she remains evergreen, and everyoung in her precious Ellis Island Oral History Recordings. And there she remains where neither time or mortality can claim her or take her away. She remains untouched and vibrantly alive for anyone who wishes to discover her.
Till her dying day, that little Jewish girl grew up to f o r e v e r remember the Lady’s immortal lines which are engraved on her plaque. The words may The author, seem out of Friedrich Gomez sequence, but to Estelle Schwartz Belford, the words ring true and eternal, nonetheless: “A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame is the imprisoned lightning, and her name is Mother of Exiles. Mother of Exiles. Caretaker of the unloved, the unwanted, the displaced.” (Ellis Island Oral History Museum.) Little did that tiny, fragile five-year-old Jewish Romanian girl know that, in time, she would forever be part of the Ellis Island historic site, via the Oral History Recordings Museum. And, therefore, never far from the Lady which first welcomed her to America with opened arms; the Lady which, throughout her life, she constantly said she loved.

Three Days of Dignity
By all rights, Jim Hester should be dead today.
Jim is a former Navy pilot whose plane was shot down over Vietnam. He managed to crash-land his plane in a rice paddy and was still alive . . but was surrounded by a large enemy force of Viet Cong and elements of the NVA (North Vietnames Army). Surely his time on earth was numbered in minutes, if not seconds, due to this overwhelming force, all of which were shooting at him. That was not to be . . . thanks to a squad of 12 Marines, none of whom were over 21 years of age. They rushed to the rice paddy to protect Jim and his flight crew, and in the process, nine of the 12 young Marines were killed.
Their mission as Marines, however, was successful. They rescued a downed pilot. A helicopter was able to come in and rescue Jim and his crew and evacuate them from the danger zone.
Jim never forgot those nine Marines who died saving him and his crew. He vowed then and there to dedicate the rest of his life to serving all veterans. It became his way of honoring the memory of those fallen Marines.
After leaving the Navy, Jim was able to locate the parents of five of the Marines who had come to his rescue, thanked them for their son’s sacrifice in saving him, and told them the circumstances of how their son had died as a bone fide military hero who went above and beyond the call of duty. He was unable to located the families of the other four Marines who had died during that fateful mission. From that day forward, Jim Hester began his quest to serve veterans of every branch of the service.
Curently, Jim is a major force in helping to stage the first ever StandDown in North San Diego County. A Stand Down is an event where military veterans come together and “stand down” from combat and other military duties. These veterans, however, have long left their military careers behind them. Almost all of them are either homeless or near homeless. Many have health issues; some have mental issues.
They paid the price for their nation and have now been forgotten by most of us. Not by Jim Hester, and not by a host of active members of the North County Stand Down Committee. .
Now, they are offered, at a minimum, Three Days of Dignity, on January 27, 28 and 29th. At the Stand Down event, they’ll be seen by doctors, nurses, dentists, and chiropractors who have donated their time and skills, at last count
there were about 40-50 commitments; they’ll receive clothes from the as such organizations Escondido Rotary Club that held a very successful clothing drive on Saturday, January 7th. They’ll receive good, nutritious food they’ll receive showers, haircuts legal counsel - a good, warm, clean place to sleep, a chance to obtain permanent housing . . . and a chance to mingle with fellow veterans.
On January 26th, 27th, and 28th a group of military veterans known as the North County Veterans Stand Down organization will stage the event.
For a great GIFT idea anytime of the year
Jim Hester spoke to our Hidden Valley Kiwanis Club about four months ago. At that time he spoke of his frustration in locating a venue for the Stand Down. The cities of Escondido, San Marcos, and Vista, could not, or would not, help.
Call 760.747.7119 for details
They’ve spent countless hours, days, weeks, and months, putting together the logistics for the event.
Give a gift subscription to The Paper!
One of our members, Arie de Jong, walked up after the meeting, shook Jim’s hand and said, “Jim, you have a home for the Stand Down. We’ll make my Green Oak Ranch available.” The wheels then began to roll.
The Stand Down is coming together!
The organization is a well structured group with a committee of members that are movers and shakers, folks who get things done.
There will be countless agencies and providers from our community that will help get these veterans back on the road to self-sufficiency.
There is, however, a critical financial need. Your donation goes to a 501(c)3 Charity.
Checks should be mailed to NCSDVETS Stand Down, 230 E. Park Avenue, Escondido, Ca. 92025.
Some facts and figures that demonstrate how serious this problem is:
San Diego County is home to the largest concentration of veterans and their famililes - more than any other county in the U. S.
50% of veterans under age 26 are unemployed.
There are between 22 to 26 suicides per day across the country amongst veterans.
$0 in bond money has been spent to help get our veterans off the streets and into housing.
Over 200,000 California veterans live in poverty.
25% of all homeless veterans in the country live in California.
These men and women served their nation! Their country has forgotten them! This simply isn’t right. Please! They need your help!
California’s Capitol; A State Treasure
Working in the Capitol building is a wonderful privilege. The building is much more than just a seat of government; it’s a living museum of California history.
California’s state capital was permanently moved to Sacramento in 1854, after temporarily locating in other cities including Vallejo, San Jose and Benicia. The current capitol building was completed between 1860 and 1874. Minor attempts at reconstruction were made over the years, but nothing major occurred until 1972, when earthquake safety concerns led to a proposal to demolish the building and replace it with a completely new structure. Fortunately, the decision was made to rebuild and reinforce the old building to bring it up to modern standards. That resulted in a lot of meticulous restoration work to safeguard the building while retaining its historic character.
For example, to reproduce the interior, old photos were extensively used. The marble mosaic on the 2nd floor is all original; 600,000 pieces were removed, polished and reinstalled. Many of the original statues had deteriorated over time and had to be replaced, but five originals remain, including symbolic depictions of Justice, Education and Industry. Water resistant copper was placed in the dome, and since the gold ball and gold leaf on top of the Capitol had deteriorated, they were replaced with electroplated gold and stainless steel. Crystal chandeliers were replaced with fluorescent lights, and the capitol’s 30 foot marble columns, each weighing 11 ½ tons, were reinforced.
Signs in the Assembly and Senate read, respectively: “It is the Legislator’s duty to establish just laws,” and: “It is the Senator’s duty to guard the liberty of the people.” For me at least, this magnificent old building stands as a staunch reminder that those duties must be fulfilled.

This is a piece that, every time I read it, the tears begin to flow. I love Bruce Krider. Were I a Catholic I think I'd nominate him for sainthood. He has saved so many dogs at great personal expense to himself - probably over $50,000 of his own money over the years.
He is also a helluva writer, capturing emotions that those of us who love dogs know and feel. This was from about two years ago - a memory from Facebook. Have a Kleenex handy and read on:
Bruce Krider is a good friend of mine. Together, we founded The Puppy Coalition, whose mission it is to save dogs from being needlessly euthanized.
We accept the fact that sometimes it is necessary to euthanize a dog. If they are terminally ill, if they are vicious. or if they have a tendency to bite people without warning (thinking they are protecting you). When this happens several times . . . when a professional trainer has not been able to shed the dog of this trait . . . then it is time for a painful decision. What follows may break your heart, as it broke mine, and Bruce's.
Bruce has saved at least 35 dogs this year and found homes for them. This one dog, Jeb, he has cared for, I think, 18 months . . . no home. Jeb has bitten or attempted to attack on several occasions. Thus the need for this action. Bruce Krider's account:
It hasn't been a week since Jeb crossed the bridge and he doesn't leave my thought much still. When I wrote and said it would be one of the toughest days ever, that was no overstatement. I had to be an actor that day. Acted like I didn't have a care in the world and that life was great. That said, it even seemed hard getting dressed that day knowing what I was going to do. It was like every fiber in my body was not wanting to go along with this. It was the heart talking. We all have different reasons to do or not do things and some of the messages come from your logical thinking brain but other ones come from your heart. I would have to get through this day one step at a time and just try to not think too much. Something like a robot operating on a program. But it doesn't work like that.
I got to the kennel about 9:10am and for the next 5 hours Jeb and I walked
everywhere we ever walked or played or just sat down together and ate junk food. We went to the Nordahl dog park and he played with a female boxer. People were saying, "What a great dog he is! Look at him play so nice with her so nice!"
I didn't let on how the day was going to end. Just tried to keep up the happy face and I didn't want to look somber around Jeb. He was supposed to be having fun.... and he was. His very best behavior was always in the dog park. It was also when he was with me. We then went to Discovery Lake where we have walked hundreds of times, then over to Lake San Marcos where he and number of different dogs walked together with he and I. They all got homes. He never did, so he shared walks with lots of dogs. Then we went to Simmons Family Park in San Marcos about a mile from my house. It has a great area where you can look for miles all up and down the coastline with a beautiful ocean view. Something in me wanted to do that with him. Not sure I can say why. It just seemed like the thing to do now. I talked. He mostly listened and looked at me sometimes tilting his head like dogs do.
My arm was around him and we looked at the ocean (as well as some crows arguing in front of us). I was getting a little misty and, Jeb, looking directly at me in a concerned way and began licking the tears away. At that point I am thinking, "OMG, How am I supposed to put him down now?" He trusts me for God's sake. Is this not going to be the ultimate betrayal ?"
A few months earlier I had to put down our very old Shepherd, Bella. She was sick and needed to be released from a life of difficulty and pain. Jeb was fine. I didn't have the luxury of being able to say, "I am putting him out of his misery." At least something that I could see like in the story of "Old Shep" when the farmer learned from his vet that Old Shep really needed to be put down. The farmer and the dog amble off to a distant part of the farm, the farmer reminiscing to the dog about what a good friend Shep has been all these years. And then the farmer's wife hears a gunshot ring out in the distance. Jeb had no physical difficulties. He was old but remarkably healthy.
Lunchtime. He loved McDonald hamburgers so he had three and a few French fries. That despite there were "free flowing doggie treats" all morning. Some really good ones that were bacon wrapped goodies. Whatever he felt like, I wanted him to have. We went to Carlsbad beach next and walked on the sidewalk. I had to put a muzzle on him though because it was in these circumstances that he could get in trouble. We walked from the downtown area down to the beach parking area closer to the power plant and then back. He was great the whole time ... of course making it no easier to take the next

Historically Speaking by Tom Morrow
History Came Alive During My Life’s Journey
Every life is about history and, for an Iowa country boy, I’ve seen and experienced more than my share of 20th century history.
As a journalist I was privy to numerous events, celebrity and historical figures. Had I not ventured out of that small Midwestern farming community, I would have missed a lifetime of wonderful experiences of meeting and writing about fascinating people. Writing the exploits of World War II veterans often was mind-boggling. Some of those stories are incredible. Probably the incredible story was that of the late Bill Ryherd of Oceanside.
Bill was a B-26 bomber pilot. He had made numerous bombing runs over Europe, but the fateful flight on Aug. 4, 1944 – his 36th mission – put him on a path that even a Hollywood scriptwriter would find daunting. To make a very long story short, Bill bailed out of his burning bomber over southern France, was picked up by the French resistance, made his way to Paris and just as he was getting prepared to be taken on to Spain, one of the resistance fighters turned him into the Gestapo, the German secret police.
Bill, who had donned civilian clothes, was loaded onto a train with political prisoners and soon found himself in the infamous Buchenwald death camp. Thanks to the persistence of a Luftwaffe commander at a nearby German airfield, Bill and 187 other Allied fliers were released from the death camp and sent to prison camps for captured Allied fliers. “We ended up in Mooseburg in southern Germany,” Bill told me.
Gen. George Patton’s 3rd U.S. Army liberated the POW camp.
“We saw Patton come through the front gate of the prison camp standing up in a Jeep, those silver pistol glistening in the sun; I thought it was Jesus Christ himself coming to rescue us.”
During my 40 year career of meeting and interviewing famous people, there are a few who would be candidates for having dinner with. We all have those thoughts, but I’ve had the good fortune of actually doing it
many times. Well, in the case of famed movie director Billy Wilder, it was breakfast.
One weekend in April 1984, I conceived and staged one of the biggest parties ever staged at the Hotel del Coronado where I was director of communications. It was the 25th anniversary of the hit comedy “Some Like It Hot,” which was filmed at the hotel in 1958. I had a good number of surviving actors and writers as guests that weekend, including Wilder, Jack Lemmon, and Tony Curtis. The world press covered the event. I had all of the major TV networks, including one from Australia, another from Germany, and journalists from nearly all national publications. It was rivaled only by the hotel’s centennial celebration four years later.
After the event, Lemmon called me and asked if I’d join him and Billy for breakfast. How could anyone turn down such an invitation. It was just the three of us. Only one did the talking.
“When you’re with Billy, you just listen,’ Lemmon explained. “I’ve never spent one minute with Billy that wasn’t absolutely fascinating.” Lemmon was right. Wilder was, indeed, the most interesting and brilliant person I had ever met. Definitely one of those “Most Unforgettable Characters” from Reader’s Digest. Over breakfast on the hotel patio overlooking the Pacific (if the folks back in Iowa could only have seen me then) we didn’t talk movies. Billy was holding court and the conversation ranged from politics to art to cigars. Two of the most fascinating hours of my life. If you want to read what an historic figure Billy Wilder was, try Googling him – fascinating life of a man who escaped Nazi Germany and became one of the world’s great filmmakers. More about my history in later columns.
Tom Morrow's books are available at Amazon.com in soft-cover or via Kindle E-mail.

"Why Some Men Have Dogs And Not Wives"
This could apply also to “why women have dogs and not husbands”
The thing that makes it so funny is; that it's so true. 1. The later you are, the more excited your dogs are to see you. 2. Dogs don't notice if you call them by another dog's name.
When it comes to drug stores... The Good Old Days are Back!
For all your prescription needs, your sundries, household items, and for medical supplies of all types, including walkers, canes, orthopedic shoes, pain relievers... it’s -

3. Dogs like it if you leave a lot of things on the floor. 4. A dog's parents never visit.
5. Dogs agree that you have to raise your voice to get your point across. 6. You never have to wait for a dog; they're ready to go 24 hours a day.
7. Dogs find you amusing when you're drunk.. 8. Dogs like to go hunting and fishing.
9. A dog will not wake you up at night to ask, "If I died, would you get another dog?" 10. If a dog has babies, you can put an ad in the paper and give them
11. A dog will let you put a studded collar on it without calling you a pervert.
12. If a dog smells another dog on you, they don't get mad. They just think it's interesting. 13. Dogs like to ride in the back of a pickup truck. And last, but not least: 14. If a dog leaves, it won't take half of your stuff.
To test this theory: Lock your wife and your dog in the garage for an hour. Then open it and see who's happy to see you! THE ARTIST
An artist asked the gallery owner if there had been any interest in her paintings that were on display. "Well, I have good news and bad news," the owner responded. "The good news is that a gentleman noticed your work and wondered if it would appreciate in value after your death. I told him it would and he bought all 10 of your paintings." "That's wonderful," the artist exclaimed. "What's the bad news?" "The gentleman was your doctor."

And, you know, people are less considerate now, especially the young ones. They speak in whispers all the time! If you ask them to speak up they just keep repeating themselves, endlessly mouthing the same silent message until they're red in the face! What do they think I am, a lip reader? I also think they are much younger than I was at the same age. On the other hand, people my own age are so much older than I am.

ing, and in doing so, I glanced at my own reflection. Well, REALLY NOW - even mirrors are not made the way they used to be!
Another thing, everyone drives so fast these days! You're risking life and limb if you happen to pull onto the freeway in front of them. All I can say is, their brakes must wear out awfully fast, the way I see them screech and swerve in my rear view mirror.
Clothing manufacturers are less civilized these days. Why else would they suddenly start labeling a size 32 waisted pant as 40? Do they think no-one notices? The people who make bathroom scales are pulling the same prank. Do they think I actually "believe" the number I see on that dial? HA! I would never let myself weigh that much! Just who do these people think they're fooling?
I'd like to call up someone in authority to report what's going on -- but the telephone company is in on the conspiracy too: they've printed the phone books in such small type that no one could ever find a number in there! All I can do is pass along this warning: WE ARE UNDER ATTACK! Unless something drastic happens, pretty soon everyone will have to suffer these awful indignities.
TELL EVERYONE YOU KNOW ABOUT THIS AS SOON AS POSSIBLE SO WE CAN GET THIS CONSPIRACY STOPPED! And don't forget - God gave you toes as a device for finding furniture in the dark

Do You Know the Six Points of Marital Stress?
Marriage-killers come in several shapes and sizes. The major ones are, in order: #1. Financial Stress. #2. Differences in children-rearing styles. #3. Sexual intimacy and frequency. #4. Lack of respect for the husband. #5. Lack of love for the wife. #6. Assumptions and Expectations. During the last two weekends
AND....If God wanted us to pop out of bed in the morning, he would have had us sleep in toasters.
of January (Jan. 21/22 and Jan. 28/29), New Song Church will be hosting a two-week series showing you how to overcome each of this in practical, helpful, non-judgmental ways. Service times are Saturday night (5 p.m.) and Sunday morning (8:30, 10:00, 11:30 a.m.). Ask anyone who has a good marriage if they’d like to improve it. What do you think they’ll say? “Yes! Of course!” Ask anyone who has a struggling marriage if they’d like to improve it. They’ll say “Yes!” too, maybe even emphatically.
This two-week series is called Simple Steps to a Better Marriage. Tug on your spouse and say, “Let’s improve our marriage!” Then get in the car for these two weekends. And while you’re at it, invite a few friends along. New Song Church is located at 3985 Mission Avenue in Oceanside. www.newsongchurch.com

Of that I have NO doubt and so while I know I had to protect others from him and know what I had to do, it will never be enough to make me comfortable with what I did that day. I hope he forgives me someday. ••••• Editor’s Note: Bruce Krider is a consultant to hospitals throughout the world.

He got a catheter in his leg and was brought back to the exam room where I was sitting on the floor and where they would administer the drugs. He was fine still and spotted some treats to the left side of me on the floor ...........and he got them all. Then I held him/hugged him and quickly took off his muzzle. I didn't want him to die with a muzzle on. They gave the injections and he was gone in probably 25 seconds, me holding his head and petting him while it was happening. Then I lost it.

We had been, and still are, very critical of former CEO of Palomar Health, Michael Covert. During the course of a series of cover stories on Mr. Covert I made contact with Mr. Krider, who was then Chairman of the Board.
We started out as adversaries. When I learned of his great love for dogs, we became instant and life-long friends.
He and I founded The Puppy Coalition Foundation and have spoken to many civic and service organizations. Bruce is far more active than I. I scribble, he goes out and rescues dogs, kennels them, feeds them, loves them, and finds homes for them. He has invested tons of his own money in dog rescues. He is one in a million. I love the guy.
In the next few months, the existing old, deteriorated buildings on the property will be demolished and the space will be developed into a park. This undertaking meets two of the City Council’s top priority goals: continue to decrease blight and improve the image of the city; and add additional park space. The timeline for the design and construction of the park are still being determined. I look forward to the completion of this project this year and adding it to our list of successful beautification projects completed for Vista residents!

Road Trip: “The Times They are a Changin”
As in years past we made our annual pilgrimage to the World’s largest consumer technology expo, the CES (Consumer Electronics Show) in Las Vegas. Part of this “road trip” has always been spending a few days with our good friends Honey and Dave in Pahrump, Nevada. Honey Hall was a well known lounge entertainer in North County and Dave Nadeau is a retired electronics engineer. They moved to Pahrump eleven years ago and still work part time in the entertainment industry. They took us to their New Years Eve gig at the Pahrump VFW and it was the best New Years Eve party we’ve attended in recent memory. There was a secondary focus for our visit to Pahrump this year. Planning
future directions for The Computer Factory has us taking a hard look at how our industry is changing so last week we visited the Pahrump Computer Superstore. Two brothers, Chris and Josh Osborne, saw the need for full service computer sales and service when they moved to Pahrump seven years ago. Pahrump lies in the isolated Pahrump Valley sixty miles from Las Vegas. Their store evolved and grew by responding to the needs of Pahrump business and home users. To be successful, small town business owners and their employees must genuinely like their work, their customers and be sincerely committed to having the right products and finding the best solutions for their customers. In this respect the Pahrump Computer Superstore is a case study in what a small town computer store should look like today.
There are differences and similarities in the business environments served by The Computer Factory and The Pahrump Computer Superstore. Pahrump covers 364 square miles with a population of 36,000. The combined area of Oceanside, Carlsbad, Vista, San Marcos and Escondido is only 161 square miles with a population of nearly 700,000, less than half the area and nearly twenty times the population. There are no Fry’s, Best Buy, Costco or Staples in Pahrump so their store must meet a broader range of needs than ours. The significant similarities are that both businesses must have the right products, services and mindset to meet
the needs of customers.
While the Pahrump Superstore is only about half the size of The Computer Factory, they have a far larger and more complete inventory of customer ready “finished goods” on their shelves. In addition, their programs in customer training, on-site and “rent-a-tech services” points to a need for that emphasis in our business plan. With less space in their service area, Pahrump’s technician work benches are compact and efficient. This is an area we need to improve if we are to expand our services. We made some good friends at the Pahrump Computer Superstore and swapped some ideas. We look forward to hosting them at our store in the near future. Our visit confirmed
