It may come as a complete surprise to most that the largest single ethnic group in America today are not the English – as many might surmise -- but German. Yes, England is still historically referred to as our “Mother Country,” and our Founding Fathers were, in large numbers, English, as were most of the early presidents of the United States who claimed English ancestry. Academics on this subject are more surgically precise: “The extent of English heritage varies with earlier presidents being predominantly of colonial English Yankee stock.” Perhaps a broader and more accurate ethnic analysis would be to surmise that the lineage of most early American Presidents to have been predominantly of British origin. In essence, all of our U. S. Presidents were/are of multi-ethnic origin, such as Richard Nixon who was of Scotch, Irish, Scotch-Irish, English, and German lineage, to cite only one example.

The early British influence has long permeated the DNA of America. Additionally, a surplus of our cities and states and even large regional areas, such as New England, New York, Boston, New Hampshire, Maryland, Massachusetts, Georgia, Virginia, etc. were named after counterparts in England. And though America has no official language (as many other countries have) our “unofficial” language which is most widely-spoken today is, of course, English. And to tie a bow around it all, England remains our closest ally. But the train of similarity comes to a screeching halt after that. German blood and German people are, officially, the most dominant ethnic group, by far, in America today.

According to the latest American census reports, over 50 million Americans now claim German ancestry, which officially makes them the largest single ethnic group in the good ol’ U. S of A. If you divide Hispanics into MexicanAmericans, Cuban-Americans, Puerto Rican-Americans, et al, then it’s not even a close horse race. In a 2010 U. S. Census report, 48 million Americans claimed German ancestry. In 2013 that number jumped to over 50 million German-Americans and this number is burgeoning as we stride into 2017. Yet, this vast number of GermanAmericans remain the “silent majority.” Unlike other ethnic groups, GermanAmericans keep a relatively lower-profile. Italians-Americans are quick to identify themselves -- ask Sylvester Stallone, Al Pacino, Robert DiNiro, or New York’s erstwhile mayor and past presidential hopeful, Rudy Giuliani. Equally vocal are the Irish-Americans and other hyphenated American groups such as the English, the Greeks, the Jews, Russians, French, well, just about everyone else. If there is any downside to this hyphenated ethnic coin it is that out of 50-plus million German-Americans who claim

such ethnicity on their census forms, only 1.38 million actually speak German in the United States! Sadly, for me (who speaks this beautiful language), that is only 0.5% of the entire GermanAmerican population in this country that are fluent in the language. This was not always so.

There existed an earlier time in America when the German culture openly flourished before it was curtailed. German immigrants had moved in great numbers to New York and Chicago and many who resided in countless small Midwestern towns spoke German almost exclusively. German-language newspapers, movie theatres and even churches grew in leaps and bounds. As American historians note: “In some of these areas, the German influence was so pervasive that other non-German settlers ended up learning German so they could communicate with fellow residents. Germans helped establish General Electric and designed New York’s

Obituaries Memorials Area Services Page 12

Brooklyn Bridge. They dominated the beer industry and that influence lingers in name brands like Busch, Miller and Pabst.” In Pennsylvania, which has a large German-American population, German was long allowed as the language of instruction in schools and, according to state records: “State documents were available in German until 1950.”

So, what happened? Why has the Germanic language dwindled to a near non-existence in proportion to its population today?

At the onset of World War I, extreme anti-German feelings surfaced in America and, as a result, the fluency of the language decreased from one generation to the next until today only a small fraction of people with German ancestry are actually fluent in the German language. The level of suppression of the language was so extreme during World War I that it was not only

a social taboo but, in some instances, a legal issue: “Many states forbade the use of German in public schools to the point where speaking German in public was against the law in some regions.” This anti-German hysteria during the First World War rose to such a crescendo that the widespread use of the language became limited to Amish and Old Order Mennonite communities. This linguistic debacle under the specter of the First World War saw German lose its position as the second most widelyspoken language in the United States. This once-strong German influence would soon end abruptly. And they (the German-American communities) would recede into the silent majority. World and domestic upheavals in history were the authors of this demise on American soil. Often, unjustly. That residual is still felt and remains the primary reason behind the paltry number of fluent German-speakers today -- it is because the language was greatly suppressed by

our country. Historians quickly note that “During the First World War, parts of America grew hysterically anti-German. Some Germans were spat at in the streets. The teaching of their language was banned in schools.” This antiGerman sentiment stayed on in some respects during this time. “German language books were burned or taken out of schools and libraries, dachshunds (dogs) were kicked and German-Americans were forced to buy war bonds to prove their patriotism.”

Author, Erik Kirschbaum, in his enlightened book, “Burning Beethoven: The Eradication of German Culture in the United States During World War I,” gives further reasons for this decay. “They (the GermanAmericans) wanted to preserve their culture and keep it intact as long as they could.” However, as Kirschbaum points out, historical events prevented this from happening, so the culture and language did not remain intact and cultural preservation flew out the window. Today, author Kirschbaum recognizes disturbing similarities between the antiGerman feelings that once engulfed an entire nation a century ago and the current rise of anti-Arab and anti-Muslim feelings since the U. S. suffered greatly during the September 11, 2001, terrorist attack. Kirschbaum reflects, “It’s another sad chapter in American history that perhaps could have been prevented or avoided if more Americans knew about the history and the way they persecuted German-Americans 100 years ago.” In short, German-Americans stopped speaking German even in their own households nor did they teach their chil-

dren during and after the First World War. As one report noted, “GermanAmericans not only stopped speaking German, they stopped reading German newspapers and they became whole-hearted Americans.” They, understandably, tried their best to avoid unjust prejudice and persecution.

German surnames were poison at America’s theatre box office and also to the ears of the non-German populace which became inflamed with patriotism to the point of becoming dangerously jingoistic. America’s largest and most powerful minority suddenly became suspect. “A lot of people thought the country was filled with spies and saboteurs and actually 30 German-Americans were killed (and hanged) by vigilantes and lynch mobs,” said Kirschbaum, whose own grandfather grew up speaking German but refused to speak it in his later years. (The book, “Burning Beethoven,” Ibid, by Erik Kirschbaum, 2015.) As a consequence, many German surnames were changed. Schmidt became Smith, Mauer and Mueller changed to Miller, and Braun morphed to Brown, to cite only a few examples. Even first names were anglicized and Johann changed to simply John; Franz became Frank, and Friedrich changed to Frederick, etc. As a consequence, U. S. Census reports (inaccurately) reflected a higher percentage of citizens with English surnames such as Smith, Jones, etc., instead of the Germanic rootnames beneath the alterations.

It is duly recorded that during World War I, U. S. President Woodrow Wilson required about 250,000 German-born men, aged 14 and older, to register their address and employment to their local post office. “About 6,000 of these people were arrested and 2,000 of them were deemed ‘dangerous,’ and were sent to internment

To this day, such wrong-doings remain hugely unacknowledged. For example, it has long been highly-publicized in the print and visual media (both here and abroad) that the unjust internment of Japanese-Americans during World War II was, in the opinion of many historians, a shameful act and yet the same plight which patriotic GermanAmericans suffered remains an asterisk in our academic history books. In this regard, the silent majority descended even farther from “silent majority” to virtually “invisible majority.” It remains as a surprise to many that during the Second World War up to 10,000 German-Americans were forced into internment camps as “enemy aliens.” Political scholars give a peek into the high-ranking U. S. Government’s attempt to subdue some of these expressions of anti-German extremism: “President Franklin Roosevelt conspicuously appointed military commanders with names like Eisenhower and Nimitz to fight the Axis powers. But the Holocaust gave GermanAmericans yet another reason to hide their origin.” Today’s current 2017 German Ambassador to the United States, Peter Wittig, weighs in with his own thoughts: “They (German-Americans) have assimilated and prospered without any political help specifically tailored for their ethnic group. The Greeks and the Irish have a far stronger support network and lobby groups than we do.”

The largest influx of Germans set foot on American soil during the mid-1800s. The steady stream has continued to this

day. Still, they remain America’s Great Silent Majority. According to The Economist Magazine: “Yet despite their numbers, they are barely visible. Everyone knew that the Kennedy clan hailed from Ireland and (three-time New York Governor) Mario Cuomo was an Italian-American. Fewer noticed that John Boehner (the 53rd) Speaker of the House of Representatives, and Rand Paul, senator from Kentucky with presidential ambitions, are of German origin.” In their February 7, 2015, edition, The Economist Magazine further noted: “Companies founded by German-Americans tend to play down their roots. Think of Pfizer, Boeing, Steinway, Levi Strauss or Heinz. Buried somewhere on their websites may be a brief note that Steinway & Sons was founded in 1853 by German immigrant Henry Steinway in a Manhattan loft on Varick Street.”

But for German-Americans, this is quickly changing, according to more recent U. S. Census Forms and the American Community Surveys which indicate that the emerging GermanAmericans are not only claiming their ethnicity, proudly, but are more vocal in their wish to preserve their cultural heritage. According to Germany’s Ambassador to the United States, Peter Wittig: “The German caucus has quickly grown to about 100 members who lobby for trade and investment as well as the preservation of their common cultural heritage.” A few years ago, a small GermanAmerican Heritage Museum opened in Washington, D. C. According to the new museum’s director, Petra Schurmann: “Germany has never been as popular as it is today. German fests and Oktoberfest have sprung up all over the country,

and they are not only about brats and beer, but also about tracing genealogy and displaying traditional dress and craftsmanship.”

This silent majority is now speaking up and claiming their roots. As Petra Schurmann says, “Stuff made by Germans sells. And Americans travel to Germany in droves – the young travel to ‘hip’ Berlin and older folks go to pretty Heidelberg.”

Many of America’s most notable individuals were/are of German ancestry, including our 34th U. S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower. The family surname was originally “Eisenhauer,” which is German for “iron hewer/miner” but later anglicized to Eisenhower. The “Eisenhauer” family emigrated from Karlsbrunn, Germany, to America, then migrated to York, Pennsylvania, in 1741. President Eisenhower would later be born in Denison, Texas, the third of seven boys. There were other notable Americans with a healthy dose of German DNA, such as that paragon of dancers, Fred Astaire (maternal grandparents were German); Mae West (mother was an immigrant from Germany); movie legend Ingrid Bergman (mother emigrated from Germany); actress Sandra Bullock (mother was an immigrant from Germany); popular actor, Christopher Walken (father emigrated from Germany); mega movie star, Tom Cruise (both parents of German ancestry); Oscar-winning actor, Leonardo DiCaprio (paternal grandmother was of German descent); American movie actress, Grace Kelly, who became Princess of Monaco (mother was of German ancestry); actress Meryl Streep, cited by the media as “the best actress of her

The silent majority today is prevalent and no longer silent.

Current U. S. President, Donald Trump, is of strong German ancestry. His paternal grandfather, Friedrich, was born in Kallstadt, a small German town which borders France. Due to widespread hatred of Germans in America in the early postwar eras, Donald Trump’s father, Fred (Fritz) Trump, hid details of Germanic family ancestry, but only out of necessity, according to political observers. The New York Times reported that Donald Trump’s father hid Donald’s grandfather’s country of origin as a matter of cultural survival: “He (Fred Trump) did not mention that Friedrich was born in Germany but, instead, claimed he was born in Sweden.”

Donald’s Trump’s cousin, John Walter – who is the Trump family historian – said this Sweden-born myth of origin found its way into Donald Trump’s 1987 book “The Art of the Deal,” however, it must be pointed out that Donald was a most reluctant participant. According to cousin, John Walter, Donald Trump remarked, “Do I have to do this Swedish thing?” Today there exists a “German Belt” which extends all the way across the length and width of the United States of America. From eastern Pennsylvania to the Oregon coast it is most pervasive, but in

Austrian visitors/customers. At Walmart I met many Germanic friends who would stay in my longer line (queue) to reach my register as opposed to being served via a shorter cashier line. Initially, this puzzled some of the Walmart management team (who wished to expedite customers as quickly as possible through these customer lanes) but upon finding out that our German-speaking constituents delighted in conversing German with me, the managers soon acquiesced in letting these customers remain in my (sometimes longer) register queue. My Walmart coworkers were stunned at the high concentration of GermanAmericans in San Diego’s North County region. Even today, we seem unaware of this ethnic presence; ironic in that they are the vast majority in America right now. I love the German language and consider it among the most beautiful in the world. While it seems to sound harsh to many non-German Americans because of the (perceived) hard “k” and “v” and “z” sounds, it has a hidden beauty all its own. German speakers can produce a variety of linguistic sounds and to the trained ear the dominant vowels and consonants can be much softer and these specific counterparts cannot be found in English.

My sister-in-law, Carol, is of strong German ancestry. She is, without question, one of the most pivotal forces in my life and was most instrumental in helping me through my 2008 near-fatal accident enabling me to regain some normalization back into my life (along with my older brother, Mario, who had the good sense to marry her).

On Tuesday, January 17, at 10:26 a.m., the City of Carlsbad Police Department was called to a traffic collision that occurred in the 6500 block of southbound Carlsbad Boulevard south of Solamar Drive. Arriving officers found that a 24-yearold male from Carlsbad was driving a 2002 Ford Mustang Convertible southbound on Carlsbad Boulevard when he struck a pedestrian. Investigators are working to determine where the pedestrian was walking at the time of the collision. The Fire Department responded and transported the 51-year-old female pedestrian, from New York, to Scripps Medical Center in La Jolla with lifethreatening injuries.

Southbound Carlsbad Boulevard at Palomar Airport Road was closed for a little over two hours while officers conducted an investigation. The investigation into the cause of the collision is underway. Commercial Burglary Suspect Arrested - Carlsbad

On Saturday, January 21, at 3:41 p.m., the City of Carlsbad Police Department was called to a commercial burglary that just occurred in the 1900 block of Camino Vida Roble. The suspect in the burglary had been inside a commercial building removing copper pipes and other items. The suspect was chased off by an employee of the business who was checking on the building during the weekend. Arriving officers searched the surround-

ing area, including an adjacent hillside. Officers located the suspect hiding in the bushes and he was taken into custody without incident. The male suspect was identified as 52 year old Kurt Yeager from San Marcos, CA.

Kurt Yeager was booked into the San Diego County Jail, Vista Detention Facility, for the charges of 460(b) PC Burglary, 594(b)(1)PC - Felony Vandalism, 466 PC -Possession of Burglary Tools, 11364(a) H&S Possession of drug paraphernalia, and 3056 PC - Parole Violation. Consumers win as federal court decision enjoins Aetna Humana merger

Insurance Commissioner Dave Jones applauds Monday’s decision by the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia to issue an injunction blocking the proposed merger of Aetna, Inc. and Humana, Inc. The Court found the merger would substantially lessen competition for Medicare Advantage plans, as well as substantially lessen competition on the Florida exchange. The Court also found any efficiencies resulting from the proposed merger are not sufficient to mitigate the anti-competitive effects for consumers. Significantly, the Court also found Aetna's withdrawal from the public exchanges in 17 counties across three states was done to avoid antitrust scrutiny, rather than for business reasons. The proposed Aetna-Humana merger would have combined the third and fifth largest health insurers by market value, in a setting where the second and fourth largest health insurers by market value (Anthem and Cigna) are also seeking to merge. Jones concluded that the market

concentration in California and in other markets resulting from the Aetna and Humana merger would damage access, quality, and affordability for consumers.

"The Aetna merger with Humana would permanently remove one of the nation's largest health insurers from the market and further reduce competition," Jones continued. "With regard to the Aetna-Humana merger, once again, bigger is not better for consumers, businesses, or health insurance markets." Insurance Commissioner Jones wins major battle against insurance industry as Supreme Court affirms his regulatory authority

In a sweeping victory for consumers, Insurance Commissioner Dave Jones today announced the California Supreme Court, in a 7-0 decision, affirmed his authority against a major insurance industry legal challenge. Rejecting the insurance industry's arguments, the Supreme Court ruled the insurance commissioner has broad discretion to adopt rules and regulations as necessary to promote the public welfare. The insurance industry lost their challenge to Jones' consumer protection regulations that require insurers replacement cost estimates actually reflect the complete cost of rebuilding a policyholder's home after a fire.

Alex dutifully went to the 'naughty chair' and had a seat. She looked down at the floor with a sullen look, some might call it a frown, on her face . . . for about a minute. Then she looked up at Kenny and her eye's sparkled and she grinned.

Probably the same with you. You probably won't be able to discipline her either." (I thought to myself . . ."Granpa's aren't here to discipline their lil granddaughters. We're here to spoil them rotten and to love 'em.")

America’s Silent Majority Cont. from Page 3 Carol, like many German-Americans, have assimilated to the point that they no longer have readily identifiable links to their Germanic heritage and language – they are simply Americans.

However if the Irish-Americans wish to revel in their great tradition of celebrating St. Patrick’s Day with the rest of us; and Mexican-Americans plunge with great gusto into Cinco de Mayo celebrations with all of us attending fiestas and ceremonies around the country; so also do German-Americans observe their Oktoberfest, Fasching and Karneval (German Mardi Gras), Weihnachtsfeir (Christmas party), German-American Steuben Parade in New York City, and of course, German-American Day (October 6).

San Diego County has a very strong and vibrant German-American presence and it is proudly manifested in many events, as cited above. It may seem difficult to believe, but San Diego’s GermanAmerican ancestry has long been a powerful cultural influence for well over 100 years now. German-American Clubs and Societies abound within the San Diego Metropolitan area and the beautiful part is that you don’t even have to be German to join the fun and hold membership. These clubs and societies encourage other nationalities and ethnic groups to share in their German heritage, customs, traditions, and cultural observances. How’s that for emptying your bucket of excuses?

Many German-American festivals and events turn San Diego County into a

huge focal point such as the gigantic world-famous annual Oktoberfest in El Cajon sponsored by the GermanAmerican Societies of San Diego and which runs two weekends this year: first weekend is Sep. 29, 30 and Oct. 1 and the second weekend is Oct. 6, 7, and 8, 2017. This massive fun event features a multitude of food booths, bier gardens, games, ox-on-the-spit, family activities for adults and kids, plus a kids fun zone, as well as crafts, raffles, games, authentic Bavarian band music, and dance. This year’s 2017 featured band will fly in direct all the way from Germany; a popular Bavarian “Oom-Pah” band from Baden-Wurttemberg famously-called “Die Guggenbach Buam.” This is truly an international event not to be missed. More information can be attained through the German-American Societies of San Diego website: www.germanclubsandiego.org or by calling the club’s general manager, Heidi Williams (619) 442-6637 or emailing: heidiwgermanclub@cox.net. La Mesa’s monster-sized annual Oktoberfest has been around since 1973 and hosts hundreds of exhibitors, family activities, German food, music, dancing, and world-famous German beer. It runs Sep. 29 – Oct. 1, 2017. This incredible German-American event is so popular that it draws an average of 100,000 people every year. Whew – that’s a lot of people! It places San Diego on the map as a must-see, must-experience event for out-of-state visitors. Best part: admission is free! More information may be attained by calling the La Mesa Village Merchants Association (619) 933-2659 or the La Mesa Chamber of Commerce (619) 465-7700. San Diego County is canvassed with other German-American Oktoberfest celebrations such as North County’s

long-running Rotary Oktoberfest at Carlsbad, and the 21st annual Encinitas Oktoberfest street fair, with over 200 vendors, national and local beers, gourmet sausage dishes, Bavarian dancers, music, etc. Also, similar annual Oktoberfest celebrations can be found at Rancho Santa Fe, Ocean Beach, Coronado, and the ever-popular Gaslamp Quarter in downtown San Diego, as well as countless other communities. Don’t miss out on all the fun! You will soon understand why so many out-of-towners pour into San Diego County, each and every year, for these spectacular fun gatherings.

Whether one wishes to learn the language through a German language class, join a German Friendship Club, or become part of a Ladies Circle (Damenkreisil), it is all there for the taking. Just contact The German-American Societies (contact information mentioned above) and the pleasure will be all yours!

Remember, there are many stellar German-American events other than Oktoberfest, that extend throughout the calendar year such as dinner dances, Anniversary Balls, New Year’s Gala, Choir Concerts and the ever-popular El Cajon “Sommerfest/Open House” in August. In Escondido, the German grocery store, Aldi, has made a huge splash in the news at its recent Grand Opening at 1330 E. Valley Parkway, appearing in Forbes magazine and other worldrenown financial publications. Escondido’s newest Aldi store is only a few miles away from its sister (Aldi) grocery store located at Vista, off Interstate 78.

has already invaded the U. S., establishing its headquarters in Batavia, Illinois, and has gained a foothold with 1,600 stores across 35 states, and making its challenge known to such adversaries as Walmart. It is not a hollow challenge: millions of new customers – each and every month – are discovering Aldi stores with increasing customer satisfaction ratings which are causing U. S. giant, Walmart, to give a forced cursory glance in the direction of this burgeoning German food store that is nipping at its heels. Founded by the German Albrecht family in Germany, Aldi stores now belong to the world, entrenched and already operating in such countries as the United Kingdom, Poland, France, Denmark, Ireland, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Slovenia, the United States, Down Under in Australia and, now, right here in Escondido and Vista. The emerging German-American presence has long been with us in Escondido, we just never before noticed the existence of this sleeping giant, the silent majority. This is changing. Each and every time you shopped at any of the Trader Joe’s store locations in Escondido and beyond, you were/are an Aldi Corporate customer: Unbeknowst to most, the Trader Joe’s chain of stores belong to the German Aldi corporate empire. According to Forbes magazine, this accelerating saturation of German enterprise is all to the benefit of happy customers around the country who, in growing numbers, are rating Aldi stores above Walmart in quality and in saving money on their purchases, according to these reports. Much of the German influence is with us in our daily lives, yet we are often

unaware of it. We often speak German, for example, every time we say words like “kindergarten” (garden for the children), poltergeist (noisy ghost), pumpernickel (type of bread), waltz (a formal dance), angst (anger or fear), auto (car), or ask for pretzels. We often say “Gesundheit” (God bless you) – especially in the mid-western and eastern states -- when we hear someone sneeze or perhaps we own a breed of dog, such as a dachshund (German word for badger hound), or say the word Volkswagen (people’s car) or drive a Porsche (German car which carries the German family surname). In all these scenarios we are speaking German words and phrases.

It is difficult to imagine a world without the great German contributions. I would not wish to think of a world without the music of Beethoven, Bach, Brahms, Handel, Mendelssohn, Strauss, or Wagner. When the great American opera singer, Beverly Sills (1929–2007), who was of Jewish-Ukrainian descent, was asked if music such as Beethoven and Bach were just “frills” without any true necessary values in life, she made her famous reply: “Civilization and civilized people are not frills.” Much of what I am today, as a writer, thinker, and human being, springs forth from Germanic culture. The philosophy of Kant and Schiller challenges me to be a more enlightened human being. Everything from the invisible inner worlds of bacteriology, nuclear fission, and X-ray technology, to the physical outer world of Bayer aspirins, bicycles, the first gasoline-powered automobile (Mercedes), helicopters, jet aircraft and

space exploration -- the German mind was always there, in the beginning stages of these discoveries and inventions.

There have been some who have chimed that we should just be Americans, without the hyphenated American identifiers as in IrishAmericans, Jewish-Americans, ItalianAmericans, etc. However, in a democratic country, the majority of Americans have clearly claimed their dignity and birthright to choose, vote, change laws, worship, or celebrate as they please, without any curtailment or restriction or condemnation to do so by any government or individuals. We Americans often voice our opinions, loudly and clearly. As such -- and when polled -- a landslide of the 325-million citizens of this great country of ours today have absolutely no problem with this hyphenated American tag. In repeated surveys they expressed a greater faith, and a greater belief that we are bigger, better, stronger, and more civilized to quibble over the puny and petty idea that usage of hyphenated American descriptions, as cited above, can ever (laughingly) bring us to our knees. It does not even – in their collective opinions – show up as a worrisome blip on their radar screens. As they expressed in vast surveys, in various ways: We have bigger fish to fry, as far as meeting and addressing social and political challenges.

Michael comedian, German Mittermeier, liberates himself by directly confronting German stereotyping with humor that scores high here in America: “I’m a German comedian . . . people say ‘That’s an oxymoron! How can that be possible – a funny German comedian?! That’s like a Russian Human Rights Commission!’” From that point on, Mittermeier has his audience in stitches. In the wake of high-decibel laughter, he has made his presence known and -without politics and the heavy hand of preaching -- he has made a devastating point. The audience will never again be the same. A powerful German stereotype (of Germans not being funny) has just withered and died on the vine.

One of Germany’s top comedian, Klaus Meyers, has suddenly appeared on countless American TV consoles on such episodes as CBS’ hit comedy series, “The King of Queens.” As a standup comedian, his audiences are often turned sideways to relieve themselves from spasms of uncontrollable laughter. Klaus Meyers is turning the wheels of progressive thinking; he is shaping destiny at the potter’s wheel by exploding German stereotyping to smithereens. He begins slowly and softly in his slightly exaggerated German-accented English, carefully surveying the audience: “I am a German. And my mother says . . . let bygones . . . be bygones.” His subtlety of delivery leaves the audience limp with laughter. What is happening on stage is un-analyzed, unfiltered, and yet it is a visceral encounter that is – for the best of reasons – slowly changing the landscape of thinking and our lingering, unjust, perception of GermanAmericans.

I grew up as a California boy. I skindived off La Jolla Cove with my buddies and my older brother, Mario, surfed with best friend, Jerry Sweeney. As teenagers, my buddies Dennis Dieffenbacher, Ray Lockwood, Joe Kerr, and Jimmy Kasanos often spoke of their families without pretense or hesitation. It was both fascinating and fun. Joe talked about his ItalianAmerican roots in Trenton, New Jersey. Likewise, Jimmy Kasanos spoke of his family being Greek-Americans and his mother served me my favorite dessert, baklava. We had no hang-ups. Nothing

to hide. We were, openly, all like brothers. Deep down we all knew, despite our ethnic diversity, that we were simply Americans. Americans with a seasoning of “Heinz 59” added in for good measure. That’s the recipe that all Americans are made from. And we should never be ashamed of that.

It was Dennis Dieffenbacher who often bragged on warm, summer vacation days, “We Americans invented the roller coaster, the jaw breaker, and rock ‘n’ roll. Dude, there ain’t anything better than being Americans!”

Best bud, Dennis . . . we could never argue with his flawless logic and common sense. We were all still under-aged back then, but found ways to lift a glass of green beer on St. Paddy’s Day, and we even wore the green. Who were we to tell revelers on the parade route to stop being Irish-Americans? Especially, since those were the same folk we laughed and patted on the back during Oktoberfest!

Career Training for Job Growth

The best way to reduce poverty is by bringing more of our citizens into the workforce. While government subsidies can help to overcome temporary setbacks, the only permanent way to increase overall prosperity is through permanent, well-paying jobs.

Unfortunately, many Californians are now struggling to secure good jobs, even though many jobs are available. In 2012, the National Skills Coalition reported that “middle skills jobs account for 50 percent of California’s labor market, but only 40 percent of the state’s workers are trained to the middle skill level.” That equates to almost two million unfilled jobs. Since additional training is key to improving job prospects, I am joining my Republican colleagues to build an education and training plan that will provide necessary resources for California’s workforce education training

system.

The plan includes secured funding for the state’s Career Technical Education program, increases in grants to community colleges and local education agencies, funding for trades and apprenticeship programs, competitive training in nursing and other health fields, along with my bill which allocates grants to organizations that train workers to break barriers to employment to gain consistent work. Barriers include developmental disabilities, criminal background or lack of skills.

There will always be budget uncertainties and challenges, but we must break the cycle of unemployment and help people attain job training skills to be successful. A growing economy with an expanding pool of skilled, well-paid workers is the best way to create a healthy economy for California.

Historically Speaking by Tom Morrow

Hollywood’s Utility Comedian and Oldest Freshman

Anyone who loves old movies, especially comedies and mello-dramas made during the 1930s and 1940s, will recognize the comedy and “second-banana” roles of Jack Oakie. Nearly forgotten today, however true movie buffs are sure to know the name, if not the face as one of Hollywood’s favorite “go-to” guy for comedic “pal” to the lead actor roles.

When his contract with Paramount ended in 1934, Oakie decided to freelance. He was remarkably successful, appearing in 87 films, most made in the 1930s and 1940s. In the film “Too Much Harmony” (1933), the part of Oakie's on-screen mother was played by his real mother, Mary Evelyn Offield.

During the 1930s, Oakie was known as "The World's Oldest Freshman," as a result of appearing in numerous films with a collegiate theme. He also was known for refusing to wear screen make-up of any kind, and his most famous trait was the frequent use of double-take.

Oakie is probably most notable for his portrayal of Benzino Napaloni, the boisterous dictator of Bacteria, in Charlie Chaplin's “The Great Dictator” (1940), for which he received an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actor. This role was a broad parody of the fascist thendictator of Italy, Benito Mussolini. Late in his career he appeared in various episodes of a number of television shows, including “The Real McCoys” (1963, “Daniel Boone” (1966), and “Bonanza” (1966). Oakie was married twice. First to Venita Varden in 1936 ended in a 1938 divorce. They reconciled, but divorced again in 1944. (She died in 1948 in a United Airlines flight in Pennsylvania). His second marriage was to actress Victoria Horne in 1950, with whom he lived at his San Fernando Valley "Oakridge" estate until his death in 1978.

Oakie was born as Lewis Delaney Offield in Sedalia, Mo., on Nov. 12, 1903. His father was a grain dealer and his mother a psychology teacher. When he was five years old the Offield family moved to Muskogee, Ok., the source of his adopted "Oakie" name. His first name, “Jack,” was the name of the first character he played on stage.

After growing up, Oakie worked as a runner on Wall Street in New York City. He narrowly escaped being killed in the Wall Street bombing of Sept. 16, 1920. While in New York, he started appearing in amateur theatre as a mimic and a comedian, finally making his professional debut on Broadway in 1923, as a chorus boy in a production of George M. Cohan’s “Little Nellie Kelly.” Oakie worked in various musicals and comedies on Broadway from 1923 to 1927, when he moved to Hollywood to work in movies at the end of the silent film era. Oakie appeared in five silent films during 1927 and 1928. As the age of the "talkies" began, he signed with Paramount Pictures, making his first talking film, “The Dummy,” in 1929. A little-known fact about Oakie, even to most film directors: he was partially deaf. Evidence of this can be seen in most of his film as he usually is facing fellow actors so he could read their lips.

Jack Oakie died on Jan. 23, 1978, in Los Angeles at the age of 74 from an aortic aneurysm. He’s buried at Forest Lawn Cemetery in Los Angeles.

Victoria Oakie continued to live there after her husband's death and bequeathed the estate to the University of Southern California. In 2009, Oakridge was acquired by the City of Los Angeles. Oakridge is considered to be one of the last remnants of the large Northridge equestrian estates, famed for former thoroughbred breeding. The city plans to use the property as a park and community event center. In 1981, the "Jack Oakie Lecture on Comedy in Film" was established as an annual event of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. At the inaugural presentation, Oakie was described as "a master of comic timing and a beloved figure in the industry."

Jack Oakie's star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame is at 6752 Hollywood Boulevard, and his hand and footprints can be found at Grauman's Chinese Theater in Hollywood.

Abraham Lincoln Cloned - Plans to run for Presidency in 2020

Scientists report a major break through in cloning and applied DNA operations. After years of study and experimentation with albino mice scientists decided to "roll the dice" and utilized DNA samples collected from Abraham Lincoln to produce a clone.

They report the cloning was successful and plan on introducing the "new" Honest Abe at the Smithsonian Institutienext week.

"We wanted to put a bit of weight on him and give him a decent shave," said Dr. Leatrice Flatgaard, Chief of Medical Experiments at the Mayo Clinic. "He was a tall skinny man and we felt before introducing him to the public that we wanted him to carry a wee bit more weight and to be freshly shaved. "We've had lengthy conversations with him and he assures us he plans on running for the Presidency in 2020, if not before," said Dr. Flatgaard. Dr. Flatgaard also announced that she had made arrangements for Mr. Lincoln to meet with current President Donald Trump, just prior to the Smithsonian Institute presentation.

The Pastor Says . . .

Pastor Tom Fry, Retired Church of the Nazarene It was a bowl of hummus. Fresh, home made hummus.

It was a gift to my grandson from one of his friends. One high school student to another. It was the kind of gift that says, “I don’t know what to do or say, but I want, I need, to do something.” “I was hungry and you gave me something to eat….” Matthew 25:35

It came a few days after three of my grandchildren lost their other grandfather just after Thanksgiving. Suddenly. Unexpectedly. Obviously, it was a tough time for everyone. My grandkids. My son, their dad, and their mom, my daughter in law who had lost her dad.

A bowl of hummus. From a friend. In this tech-savvy, on-line age, it could have been a meal in a box, delivered by Amazon. My generation would have sent over a crock pot, ready to plug in and cook for the day. My parents would have brought by a covered dish, hot, ready to serve. And that’s what happened, friends reached out. Co-workers, neighbors, students, teachers.

People who remembered a listening ear, a helping hand, an encouraging word, an act of kindness. People who remembered things that the grandkids and their parents had forgotten. “But when did I see you hungry and feed you?” Matthew 25:37, paraphrased.

People who didn’t know what to say or what to do. But wanted to do something. Because they cared. Because they loved. Because they felt loved. “Whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.” Matthew 25:40

A bowl of hummus. Fresh, home made hummus. In Jesus name.

Obituary

Betsy Luella (Murdock) Redding

12/24/1930 ~ 12/17/2016

ESCONDIDO / REDDING Betsy Redding of Redding, CA., passed away December 17, 2016, at the age of 85. She died after a battle with Alzheimer’s. Betsy was born December 24, 1930, in Waukesha, WI., to Raymond and Beatrice Murdock. As a child, Betsy met Gordon Redding while attending a one-room school house in Palmyra, WI. Betsy graduated from Palmyra High School in 1948. Betsy and Gordon Redding married on March 4, 1950, and were married 58 years before Gordon’s death in 2008. They worked the family dairy farm until 1963 when they relocated to Escondido, CA. Betsy worked as an office manager/bookkeeper for a construction company before forming her own bookkeeping service in Escondido, CA. In

overall decline of PC sales and the saturation of the “smart phone” market. PC sales peaked in 2011 and have been in decline since then. As Apple and Microsoft experience declining PC sales they are also seeing erosion of their share of dwindling PC sales due to the success of the “Cloud” based Chromebooks, the only growth segment of the PC industry. Chromebooks have pushed both Apple and Microsoft to historic lows in market share and are offered by all major PC makers and brands (except Apple). Windows PCs still make up nearly 90% of new PC sales. Besides the emergence of Chromebooks there are three other reasons that PC sales are in decline. First, computers last longer than in the past. Many PC built in 2010 with Win 7 are as fast and capable and more user friendly than today’s new PCs with Win10. Second, the majority of business and home users prefer Windows 7 to the newer versions Windows (Win8 and Win10) so 50% of PCs are still running the seven year old Win7 OS while only 25% have Win10. Third, Smart phones and tablets have replaced PCs for many mobile applications.

The long term trend seems to be that “stand alone” PCs like Windows and Apple will be replaced by “dumb terminals” like “Smart phones” and Chromebooks. These are essentially input/output devices to facilitate access to the information, processing power and storage capabilities

1995, she and Gordon retired and relocated to Redding. Betsy spent many hours volunteering at Shasta Regional Medical Center and as a member of the First Christian Church on Placer Street, Redding, CA. She is survived by three adult children, Roger (Sue) Redding of San Marcos, CA, Jane (Tom) Nichols of Redding, CA and Kim Redding, of Chicago, IL. Betsy is also survived by 10 grandchildren and 11 greatgrandchildren. Betsy was preceded in death by her husband, Gordon; her brothers, James (“Sonny”) and Jimmy Murdock; and her twin sister, Beatrice (“Red”) and sister, Jean. Betsy’s gardening expertise, rural wisdom and down on the farm cooking will be missed by all. A memorial will be planned for a later date.

of the “Cloud.” The model for the PC of the future are the Chromebooks, basically a smart phone with a big screen and keyboard. The need for the local, stand alone processing power and data storage will someday be the exception rather than the rule.

The transition will take time and Windows PCs will be around quite a while. The Computer Factory will continue to build, repair and sell desktop and notebook PCs. We are ramping up our inventory of “factory refurbished” late model PCs. These PCs are built to commercial workstation standards with multi-year warranties and are nearly always a better value than the “low bidder” retail PCs found in the big box stores.
