Volume 44 - No. 04
by lyle e davis
Those of us who fancy ourselves writers need to pause now and then and pick up and read a story or two by the Master, Mark Twain. It makes one rather humble right smartly.
Samuel Clemens, more commonly known by his pen name of Mark Twain, had it all. This often curmudgeonly man was a storyteller. He could pull a laugh out of you one minute and rip a tear or two out of your eyes the next. He had a knack of capturing the local dialect, of turning a phrase just so, of writing descriptive pieces that transported you right into the middle of wherever it was he wanted you to be The Paper - 760.747.7119

at the time. Much of what he had to say has endured down through the years and has become part of our everyday language. Other comments he’s made are less well known but still tickle the funny bone. One such phrase that brought a chuckle from me:
“Doctor Meredith moved to Hannibal and was our family physician there and saved my life several times. Still, he was a good man and meant well.” Most of us have read “Huckleberry Finn” and “The Adventures of Tom Sawyer.” Still others have read “Roughing It,” “Innocents Abroad,” and a number of other short stories of Twain’s. Those of us who haven’t are missing a real reading treat. The man is as alive, funny,
brilliant, witty and wise as he was when he was tickling America a hundred years ago. Those of us who scribble words to put bread on the table would do well to read him again and again and yet again, to get a feel for the power of words written down in just the right order, just the right manner, and with the application of dialect, accents, wisdom and folly. Chances are we still wouldn’t get it just quite right. Mark Twain did. He endures through today.
I’ve culled some of his more well known phrases that I suspect will amuse you a bit. This brilliant man was born and resided in Missouri during his impressionable teens, in the little riverbank town of Hannibal. He was a journey-

man printer for eight years, was a Mississippi River pilot for four, a prospector in Nevada, a newspaper reporter in Virginia City, Nevada, and then broke upon the American literary scene with a piece called, “The Notorious Jumping Frog of Calaveras County.”
For the next forty five years he penned books, stories, travelogues and observations. He was in huge demand as a lecturer. He was a master story teller and writer. Seldom did he write more than a paragraph without a beautiful and humorous anecdote, phrase, or tall tale. And so, we present you with a gift. A small collection of the brilliant sayings, comments and observations of Samuel Langhorne Clemens.

The world suffered a great loss in 1910. Mark Twain died. His facile pen and brilliant mind faded into darkness, only his works remain.
His love of using dialect, of doing a caricature of the rich and famous, as well as the more mundane, his use of dialogue . . . are all still there for the taking. Check any library, book store, or garage sale and seek out the works of Mark Twain. You’re in for a treat. Speaking of treats, researching Mark Twain is one of the sweetest treats. So often,

Frantically I headed for the parking lot. My husband has scolded me many times for leaving my keys in the car's ignition. He's afraid that the car could be stolen. As I looked around the parking lot, I realized he was right. The parking lot was empty. I immediately called the police. I gave them my location, confessed that I had left my keys in the car, and that it had been stolen. Then I made the most difficult call of all to my husband: "I left my keys in the car and it's been stolen."
There was a moment of silence. I thought the call had been disconnected, but then I heard his voice. "Are you kidding me?" he barked, "I dropped you off!" Now it was my turn to be silent. Embarrassed, I said, "Well,
researching an individual can be the tedious part of writing. Not so when researching Mark Twain. One soon finds oneself aboard a magic carpet, totally absorbed in reading his material, following the workings of his fertile mind, and usually laughing at some premise he has developed, some memory he has recalled, some story, real or imagined, that he has put to paper.
I recall going to the Internet and stumbling across his autobiography. Deciding to ‘glance through’ bits and pieces of his autobiography I soon found that two hours had passed. The Old Master had done it to me again. He had mesmerized me and it was all I could do to tear myself away and try to focus on the story we were doing about him. . . not the story he was telling. Twain does that to you. He grabs your mind, your attention, your imagination, and you are lost in a lovely reverie.

A US Navy cruiser anchored in Mississippi for a week's shore leave. The first evening, the ship's Captain received the following note from the wife of a very wealthy and influential plantation owner:
"Dear Captain, Thursday will be my daughter's Debutante Ball. I would like you to send four well-mannered, handsome, unmarried officers in their formal dress uniforms to attend the dance."
They should arrive promptly at 8:00 PM prepared for an evening of polite Southern conversation. They should be excellent dancers, as they will be the escorts of lovely refined young ladies. One last please."

Mouse Detective," "Oliver & Company," recalls a story about Clemens. “Sam was often asked by newspapers to express himself on a current event -- without payment. Here's a letter he wrote about it but never mailed:” Dear Sir:
I have received your proposition, which you have imitated from a pauper London periodical which had previously imitated the idea of this sort of mendicancy from seventh-rate American journalism where it originated as a variation of the inexpensive "interview."
Why do you buy Associated Press dispatches? To make your paper more salable, you answer. But why don't you try to beg them? Why do you discriminate? I can sell my stuff. Why should I give it to to you? Why don't you ask me for a shirt? What is the difference between asking me for the worth of a shirt and asking me for the shirt itself? Perhaps you didn't know you were begging. I would not use that argument -- it makes the user a fool. The passage of poetry -or prose, if you will -- which has taken deepest root in my thought and which I oftenest return to and dwell upon with keenest no matter what, is this: That the proper place for journalists who solicit literary charity is on the street corner with their hats in their hands.
Another colleague, and brilliant writer in his own right, Mel Sherer, (SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE NBC/Lorne Michaels, STAND-UP COMEDY MATERIAL Andy Kaufman, Kevin Nealon, Michael Richards. MARRIED WITH CHILDREN Fox Network/Columbia TV, HAPPY DAYS ABC/Garry Marshall, LAVERNE & SHIRLEY /Garry Marshall, JOANIE LOVES CHACHI ABC/Garry Marshall, LIFE WITH LUCY ABC/Aaron Spelling MR. BILL'S REAL LIFE ADVENTURES, many others) summed up what most of the world’s writers feel about Twain:
“I have, right here in my hands, the complete works of Mark Twain, annotated, cross-referenced and priceless. He and Melville are my favorite American writers, perhaps my favorite writers. Twain is the greatest of lights in the intellectual history of the American novel. "A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court" is a
masterwork. The film, starring Bing Crosby was nice. It has little to do with the depth and satyrical brilliance of the novel. If you haven't read it, do so. If you have, but as a child, read it now.
I guess I'm speaking to those who may not have spent that much time with Twain or Melville. You can easily download any of Melville's short novels from the Internet. I suppose MOBY DICK was required reading for most of us, but, if not, please read it. There is nearly nothing closer to perfection, in my opinion. I wish both of those guys were writing novels, films, and television shows today. But Clemens would probably be into video games and Melville would still be found dead in a gutter one day. Being in the same world with them at the same time. That would be swell.”
When I mentioned this week’s cover story was on Mark Twain, a number of the professional writers on a Writer’s Conference to which I belong began to “ooh,” and “ah,” like giddy teenagers. They, like me, began to recall many pleasant hours of having read this man. I can think of no better advice to aspiring writers than to study Samuel Clemens (Mark Twain). Learn his style, learn his use of imagery, of dialect, of story telling. You may try to imitate him, and that’s fine. You’re imitating the best. But you will soon learn that no one, absolutely no one, can imitate Twain. They can try, but they will fall short. No writer I know has the fertile mind, the vivid imagination, the command of the language, the ear for dialogue and dialect, the skill of storytelling. Still, if you’re looking for a model, you can’t do much better than Mr. Clemens.
Finally, I can think of no finer gift to offer you than the admonition to get thee to a bookstore, or a library, or to the Internet . . . and obtain any of the works of Samuel Clemens aka Mark Twain. If you haven’t read him, you’ll discover whole new worlds awaiting you. If you have read him, perhaps as a child, you’ll be taken back to a wonderful world of enjoyment such as is not offered today. Today’s writers don’t even come close. There are hundreds, perhaps thousands, of quotes attributed
to Twain. We have cited a number of them here, at the beginning of this story. But great as they are, there is so much more to Mark Twain. There is simply nothing like a good Mark Twain story. Get one . . . get several, and then you will truly enjoy your holidays . . . and many more to come. Happy reading!

Kilroy Was Here
He is engraved in stone in the National War Memorial in Washington , DC- back in a small alcove where very few people have seen it. For the WWII generation, this will bring back memories. For you younger folks, it's a bit of trivia that is a part of our American history. Anyone born in 1913 to about 1950, is familiar with Kilroy. No one knew why he was so well known- but everybody seemed to get into it. So who was Kilroy?
Always do right. This will gratify some people and astonish the rest.

In 1946 the American Transit Association, through its radio program, "Speak to America," sponsored a nationwide contest to find the real Kilroy, offering a prize of a real trolley car to the person who could prove himself to be the genuine article. Almost 40 men stepped forward to make that claim, but only James Kilroy from Halifax, Massachusetts, had evidence of his identity. 'Kilroy' was a 46-year old shipyard worker during the war who worked as a checker at the Fore River Shipyard in Quincy His job was to go around and check on the number of rivets completed. Riveters were on piecework and got paid by the rivet. He would count a block of rivets and put a check mark in semi-waxed lumber chalk, so the rivets wouldn't be counted twice. When Kilroy went off duty, the riveters would erase the mark.

Carlsbad Armed Robbery
On Friday, January 17th, at 2:29 a.m., the City of Carlsbad Police Department received a call of an armed robbery that occurred at the AM/PM located at 1991 Palomar Airport Road in the city of Carlsbad. The suspect was described as a Hispanic male adult, approximately 30 years of age, wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, black jeans, and white shoes and was armed with an unknown type long gun. The suspect left the store and fled on foot in an unknown direction. The loss was an undetermined amount of U.S. currency. No suspects have been identified at this time and this investigation is pending. Mountain Lion Sighted in San Marcos
If you live in San Marcos, be aware that mountain lion sightings have been reported in your area.
Deputies from the San Marcos Sheriff's Station received the call on Sunday, January 19th just after 9:00 a.m. Witnesses reported seeing the mountain lion in the 1500 block of Glencrest Drive, 1700 block of Melrose Drive and 2200 block of Silverado Street in the San Elijo Hills area. Sheriff's ASTREA flew over the area to search for the mountain lion, but was not able to confirm reports of the sightings.
The California Department of Fish and Game has been notified. Its officers also checked the area, but did not find the big cat. The agency has received unconfirmed reports of mountain lion sightings over the weekend as well.
The following safety tips have been provided by the California Department of Fish and Game: •Do not feed deer; it is illegal in California and it will attract mountain lions. •Trim brush to reduce hiding

Banned at Jimbo’s
I recently received about four or five inquiries/complaints from readers of The Paper as to why they could no longer pick up The Paper at Jimbo’s in Escondido.
I patiently explained that The Paper doesn’t go where it is not wanted and, via voice mail, Brian, the Escondido Jimbo’s manager had let us know we were no longer welcome to distribute our papers there. No explanation as to why, just that we should no longer drop papers there.
We publish jokes about religion, politics, death, taxes, all the things one is told not to discuss in polite company. We may even, on occasion, publish a risque joke . . . but never lewd or obscene.
We have owned The Paper for over 15 years and have received four, maybe five, complaints about our Chuckles content over those 15 years. To us, this strongly suggests we’re pretty much in tune with the public pulse of our readership. Some readers may not like our jokes on any given week; they don’t read them or ignore them. They can’t all be winners (though most of them are.) They read the rest of The Paper. The cover story, the local news, our columnists. They don’t try to impose their wishes on the rest of our readership.
We regretted their decision but did not question it. Until we heard from several readers as to the reason they had been told The Paper was persona non grata at Jimbo’s in Escondido.
One did. And Jimbo’s decided to ban The Paper. Based on one individual’s complaint.

Dry conditions underscore the value of regional investments in water supply diversification, water-use efficiency
Despite a statewide drought declaration last Friday, the San Diego County Water Authority has adequate supplies for 2014 because of local investments in diverse and more reliable water supplies over the past two decades and a long-term decrease in regional water demand.
The Water Authority is not projecting the need for countywide water-use restrictions this year, though the agency is closely monitoring hydrologic conditions across the Southwest. It is also encouraging residents and businesses to use water as efficiently as possible to avoid water waste. Gov. Jerry Brown declared a drought state of emergency because areas of California have been hit hard by low water supply availability after two consecutive dry years and the start of a third.

early January showed snow levels at 20 percent of normal – tied for the lowest such measurement for that time of year. The Colorado River Basin, another major source of water for Southern California, is faring better with the snowpack at about average for this time of year. However, 11 of the past 14 years have been dry in the Colorado River Basin, and the system’s main reservoirs collectively are less than half full. Locally, precipitation at Lindbergh Field was only 70 percent of normal between Oct. 1 and Dec. 31. The San Diego region imports about 85 percent of its water supplies. This year’s imports from the State Water Project are expected to be very low due to low water storage levels in that system, poor hydrological conditions and regulatory restrictions. However, the Water Authority’s largest provider of water – the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California – has said it has adequate stored water reserves and doesn’t expect to impose allocations this year.

We spoke with Brian, the Escondido branch manager, as well as to Jimbo himself, Jim Someck. Both confirmed that one individual complained about several jokes about religion in a recent issue. I asked if one individual should determine what 150 to 200 others should read (the average number of papers we distributed at Jimbo’s each week before being banned).
Brian said he was concerned about content, that the same one individual then brought several other issues of The Paper to review and complained of other jokes. (Question: Why did the individual simply not read The Paper? Not that difficult to ignore a story or joke you don’t care for but still enjoy the rest of the issue.) Both Brian and Jimbo expressed concern that they

Historically Speaking by Tom Morrow
The Founding of Mission San Luis Rey
The Spanish military and priests determined a new Spanish mission was needed to cut the travel time between San Diego and San Juan Capistrano.
Father Fermin de Lausen founded Mission San Luis Rey on June 13, 1798.
The Spanish tried to position the 21 missions along or close to the coast so each could easily be reached within a day’s travel on horseback, mule, and foot along California’s original highway, El Camino Real (the royal road). The travel distance between each mission was approximately 30 miles.

El Camino Real began as little more than a footpath, but nonetheless a coastal passage for travel from San Diego to San Francisco. Portions of the original route exists today from San Diego north to San Francisco in a variety of highway and various city streets fashion.
There is good documentation of a visit by British explorer George Vancouver. He described San Diego as a lessthan-desirable place to live. He found the Spanish to be rather cool in their hospitality, and the balmy coastal climate not to his liking. “The way of life in California,” according to Vancouver’s journal, “is not calculated to produce any great increase in white inhabitants.” Mission San Luis Rey de Francia was laid out and built some five miles east of the coast line along the south shore of the San Luis Rey River. It was named in honor of King Louis 9th of France, who had been a Franciscan friar. No figure in California mission history is more revered by the Luiseno people than is Father Antonio Peyri.

of 1798, some 6,000 adobe bricks had been made for the new church, which was completed by 1802.
At the height of Mission San Luis Rey’s dominance in North County, it was the largest of the 21 complexes and the most prosperous, with some 25,000 head of cattle, 26,000 sheep, 2,000 head of horses, all maintained by 5,000 Luisenos living in and around the mission.

The Mexicans take control…
In 1821, the Mexican people overthrew some 300 years of Spanish rule.
The new Mexican government insisted upon separating church and state, which meant the demise of the mission system and its vast holdings. Secularization meant the holdings of land and livestock at each mission was taken by the new government and sold to the public. More importantly, the padres
at each of the missions no longer had control over the native population. The mostly Spanish-born padres refused to swear allegiance to the new Republic of Mexico, which caused them to be feared and distrusted by Mexican officials. Mexican secularization made all mission property public, and the natives were to be freed. This move, however, made the wealth that had been built up by each mission open to politicians and their cronies to grab the riches for little or nothing, all under the semblance of law. It could be compared with the “reconstruction” period in the South after the American Civil War.
During the secularization period in Mexico and Alta California there was a rapid increase in the number of private ranchos. Here in North County, Rancho Los Flores y Santa Margarita today is known as Camp Pendleton. Rancho Guajome in Vista was a subsidiary of Margarita. Mission San Luis Rey was abandoned and surrendered to the Mexican government in 1835, clearing the way for officers, soldiers and landowners to loot or buy off at ridiculous-

campaign, implement wateruse reduction plans at all state facilities and take other actions to provide assistance to farmers and communities that are damaged economically by dry conditions. The Water Authority staff is closely evaluating the details of the declaration and will update the Board of Directors on water supply conditions at its regular meeting on Jan. 23.
“We welcome any relief that state or federal agencies can provide, particularly in communities that are already experiencing significant impacts from water shortages,” said Thomas V. Wornham, Chair of the Water Authority’s Board of Directors. “Today’s declaration underscores the constant water supply challenges facing California, the need to always use water wisely and the value of our investments in diversifying our water supplies.” In 2006, the Water Authority and its member agencies developed and approved a plan for taking an orderly, progressive approach to managing water supplies during worsening supply conditions. The document, now called the Water Shortage and Drought Response Plan, was activated by the Water
Authority in May 2007 in response to increasing supply constraints and deactivated in April 2011. The Water Authority’s Board will use the plan as guidance for assessing potential regional actions to take this year in response to the supply forecast for the San Diego region in 2014 and beyond.
The governor’s declaration calls for Californians to reduce water use by 20 percent. The San Diego region’s water users have made great strides in water-use efficiency. Per capita water use has decreased about 27 percent since 2007, and local cities and water districts are on pace to meet their statemandated water-efficiency targets for 2020. Total regional consumption of potable water in 2013 was 24 percent lower than in 2007. The Water Authority and its 24 member agencies offer rebates, tools and educational programs to improve water-use efficiency at homes, businesses and institutions. For more information, go to the WaterSmart link at www.sdcwa.org. In addition, the Water Authority and its member

agencies have made significant investments to diversify San Diego County’s water supply sources. Conservation-andtransfer programs that are part of the Colorado River Quantification Settlement Agreement of 2003 provide a significant hedge against drought for San Diego County. In 2014, these transfers will provide the county with approximately 180,000 acrefeet of Colorado River water that reduce local reliance on the State Water Project. The Water Authority’s independent Colorado River transfers ramp up to 280,000 acre-feet in 2021, enough to support more than a half-million typical single-family homes.
Another major piece of the Water Authority’s supply strategy is taking shape across North County. In November 2012, the Water Authority signed an agreement to buy up to 56,000 acre-feet of water annually from the Carlsbad Desalination Project, which is under construction by the private developer Poseidon Water. It is expected to start commercial production in early 2016. It will produce enough locally controlled, droughtproof water to serve approximately 112,000 homes. The Water Authority also is assessing proposed solutions to water supply challenges in the Sacramento-San Joaquin BayDelta, the hub of the state’s water supply system and the source of about 20 percent of the San Diego region’s water supplies. It has become less reliable as a supply source in recent years and its habitat has deteriorated. The Water Authority’s Board is analyzing potential strategies for restoring the Bay-Delta by seeking solutions that are cost-effective and can secure long-term financing. In coming months, the Board will consider submitting comment letters on environmental documents and financing plans related to the
Bay Delta Conservation Plan. For more information about the Bay-Delta, go to www.sdcwa.org/bay-delta-conservation-plan.

man was upset about all the wages being paid to riveters, and asked him to investigate. It was then he realized what had been going on. The tight spaces he had to crawl in to check the rivets didn't lend themselves to lugging around a paint can and brush, so Kilroy decided to stick with the waxy chalk. He continued to put his check mark on each job he inspected, but added 'KILROY WAS HERE' in king-sized letters next to the check, and eventually added the sketch of the chap with the long nose peering over the fence and that became part of the Kilroy message.

Once he did that, the riveters stopped trying to wipe away his marks. Ordinarily the rivets and chalk marks would have been covered up with paint. With the war on, however, ships were leaving the Quincy Yard so fast that there wasn't time to paint them. As a result, Kilroy's inspection "trademark" was seen by thousands of servicemen who boarded the troopships the

ly cheap prices the vast holdings of the mission.
The looting became so fierce that even the huge timber beams holding up the roof of the church and other major buildings were stolen by ranchers to construct their own private buildings. For the next century, artifacts taken by the Mexicans during the period were gradually found in private homes and collections, much of which has been returned to the mission. Mexico’s neglected Alta California might never have become part of the United States had it not been for three visionaries with very huge egos: Colonel John C. Fremont, Commodore Robert F. Stockton, and Brig. General Stephen W. Kearny.
Because it could take as long as six months to get a message to and from Washington, D.C., decisions had to be made on the spot, at the moment of opportunity. The question of who really had control of California wasn’t settled for some time. The population’s attitude was mixed. A good deal of the people welcomed U.S. control; the landowners with huge Spanish and Mexican land grants were less

San Marcos • Mayor Jim Desmond Creek District Update
The Creek District project design is in full swing. This project is a significant component of the City’s future, as it will create San Marcos’ future downtown.
The backbone infrastructure being designed now will be the foundation for the future mixed-use development. We will also be enhancing the San Marcos Creek to make it an integral part of the future open space and recreation while solving a long-standing flood control problem for the City. It is no exaggeration to say that the City has been working on this project for almost 30 years with the emphasis
on acquiring the required regulatory agency permits such as the Army Corps of Engineers as well as the Regional Water Quality Control Board.
San Marcos was successful in acquiring all the needed permits in January 2012. However, after the dissolution of redevelopment by the state, the City had to pause and re-strategize on how to approach the design and construction of the Creek District.
We are happy to inform you that the City has been successful in its negotiations with Caltrans and Federal agencies to fill some of the funding gap created by the redevelopment takeaways and we expect to start construction of the backbone infrastructure by fall 2015 and completion by fall 2017.

Microsoft, XP and April 14th 2014
Microsoft will end support for Win XP on April 14th 2014. At that time the registration and update site will be frozen. The site will still be there, it simply will no longer be updated. That means that Microsoft will no longer drive you nuts with Windows XP automatic updates. Most other third party add-ons like Adobe, Java, Google and Quick-time will continue to provide Win XP security updates.
A few weeks back we discussed the probability that Microsoft was deliberately sabotaging Windows XP by making the XP registration and update site difficult to use. For a decade this site was easy, fast and accessible. In mid 2013 all hell broke loose. The process of activating and updating Win XP that
Oral Histories in the Classroom
History textbooks simply recount past events, while oral testimonies of individuals who experienced these same events humanize the stories of our shared past.
Personal accounts give history a sense of overwhelming relevance and bring it to life. Take Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., for example. We may not recall the complete history of the Civil Rights Movement, but we need only remember Dr. King’s famous “I Have a Dream” speech to understand the movement’s message of hope.
I believe that our education system needs to do more to preserve the
once took only minutes was now taking hours. Microsoft provided no explanation or acknowledgement that there was a problem. The Internet erupted in complaints and speculation that Microsoft was deliberately sabotaging the site was rampant. It seemed a ham-handed ploy by Microsoft to force XP users to move to Windows 7 or 8. Microsoft would then make money on new operating systems, PC hardware and software sellers would cash in on new PCs, upgrade components and applications software needed to run the new operating systems. Everyone would be happy except the poor saps forced to give up XP hardware and software that was working perfectly well to spend money buying new hardware and software that didn’t do anything for them.
malware support would further open the door for Google? Microsoft is still smarting from their decision three years ago to freeze Internet Explorer support for XP at IE 8.0. That decision allowed Google Chrome to blow past IE becoming the Worlds number one browser in a landslide. 30% of PCs accessing the Internet are powered by XP, 48% by Win 7, 10% by Win 8 and 7% by Apple. Amazingly there are four times as many Microsoft XP users than all the Apple users in the universe. In reality there may be as many XP PCs in use today as there are Windows 7, 8 and Apple combined. Millions of XP PCs are used
in applications that don’t access the Internet like ATMs, point of sales terminals, security and surveillance systems, CNC equipment and similar dedicated systems.
The bottom line is this. If you have an older Win XP system and it is running fine don’t worry about April 14th. If you have a late model (last 5 years) Vista PC, consider spending the nearly $200 to upgrade to Win 7/ 64 Pro (especially if it is a 32 bit version). If you need a new PC we recommend avoiding Win 8.1. Stay with Win 7. If you can’t find a Win 7 desktop or notebook that meets your needs in the “big box” stores, come see us.
Suddenly, last week, the Windows XP activation and update site got well, easy to use, fast and friendly, just like the old days Next Microsoft reversed its decision to stop Windows Security Essentials Support for Windows XP in April 2014 and pledged to continue antimalware support for XP through mid 2015. Why did Microsoft soften its assault on XP? Was it the uproar over their alleged XP site sabotage? Perhaps because nearly one third of the PCs accessing the Internet today still use XP? Is it the fear that removing their anti-

I am currently co-authoring legislation that will achieve this goal by requiring classes to include oral histories of survivors of the most tragic periods in recent history. By including personal stories of a range of individuals from survivors of the Khmer Rouge to survivors of the Armenian genocide, students will be exposed to the human consequences of these events and be reminded of our capacity for evil, courage and survival.

As always, passing a budget will be critical. Though the Governor’s proposed budget increases General Fund spending by 8.5%, it also establishes a rainy day fund and begins paying down accumulated debt. In that regard the budget is a step in the right direction. Unfortunately, the massive unfunded liabilities that threaten to sink California into a sea of red ink remain to be dealt with.

To help prove his authenticity in 1946, James Kilroy brought along officials from the shipyard and some of the riveters.

The other day I was going by a school playground and was greeted by twenty or so shouting young boys. Their soccer ball had gone over the fence and was lying near the curb. They implored me to get it for them. I picked it up and the group moved away from the fence anticipating the toss over. I was pleased with their confidence in my ability. As soon as the ball was in hand, the boys ran off to finish their game. After all, several precious recess minutes had
I’m not being critical of the other boys. I can still remember those few minutes of recess and trying to get in a “game” of whatever sport was in season. The important is often trumped by the urgent.
Jesus had a similar experience. Ten men with leprosy, the most debilitating disease of the day, asked for Jesus’ help. He sent them to their priest, who found them healed. They were ecstatic. They ran off to redeem the rest of their lives and reclaim the years lost in disease. But one of the men came back to Jesus. To thank him. To praise him. To be grateful. For one leper, for two little boys, the important won out over the urgent. They took a moment to say “Thank you.” It’s a good lesson for us as well. Say “Thank you.” The urgent will always wait for the important.
