Their story is a most remarkable one. In fact, it is nearly-impossible for today’s generation to truly grasp and comprehend the magnitude of their achievements back then in early 1940s America. In an era when many women didn’t drive an automobile, when many never even had a driver’s The The Paper Paper -- 760.747.7119 760.747.7119

license, a small group of fiercelypatriotic girls – some teenagers -- single-handedly broke down seeminglyimpossible barriers of their time -and took to the skies. They became the first women in history to fly America’s aircraft!
They were the Columbus, Magellan,
Lewis & Clark, and Neil Armstrong of their era. They became aviation pioneers who charted new worlds of opportunity, and over-turned the apple cart of conventional thinking.
They were all original members of the mighty and legendary WASP (Women Airforce Service Pilots). And aside from becoming America’s
first military ‘fly girls’ to wander the Deep Blue Yonder, they often lost their own lives in the service of their country during the Second World War. Over three-quarters of a century have passed since the first WASP flew the skies and, yet, these “legendary women warrior pilots” still remain

largely unknown, and unheralded, by the American public.
To this very day, in 2018, they remain hugely unknown.
The number of World War II WASP survivors are greatly dwindling. Old age is taking them from our midst. Soon, there will be none left. Simply gone, vanished forever, from the American landscape, never to return. And their likes of which we shall not see again in a thousand burning sunrises, no – not even till the end of time and our good green Earth finally explodes into the void – will we ever see the likes of America’s WASP. Those precious few that still remain are old, and feeble, and often relegated to wheelchairs, sometimes bedridden, and experience isolation; some living out their remaining years – or hours – relatively unknown, in senior rest homes, adding to the anonymous ranks of disabled military veterans. Only 4 months ago, on Friday, September 29, 2017, decorated World War II WASP pilot, Mildred “Duke” Caldwell died at age 99. They are hanging on, yet time and history, to a great degree, continues to ignore or be completely unaware of their Great Golden Legacy and mighty contributions to our flag and country. This, is their glorious story which –

as long as Americans draw breath – should continue to be told, and retold again and again. To ensure that every school child, every adult – every American – will never forget, but, forever cherish our great American heritage, which these great women war heroes carved out for us.
Their story here is totally unfiltered. So, be forewarned that much of what you are about to read may be uplifting and inspiring, but, also shocking and greatly disturbing in its realism.
It was only 18 months ago at Avenger Field in Sweetwater, Texas, where the WASP Homecoming took place on May 28, 2016. Sadly, it went virtually unnoticed from the national press corps. To this very day, these fiercely patriotic ‘fly girls’ – pioneer women military pilots from the Second World War -- are still fighting an uphill battle for recognition. Unlike the male draftees who were often conscripted and forced into service to help fight the “War to End All Wars,” these women warrior pilots were (never) drafted into action on behalf of their country – they all volunteered, every one of them. Thirty-eight would perish during World War II, some suffered extremely agonizing death.
Today, due to advancing old age, their numbers are quickly dwindling. Prior to their gathering at one WASP reunion in Texas, a flyer advertising this gathering sadly said it all: “This could be the last chance we have to pay tribute to many of the “The

The secret of a good sermon is to have a good beginning and a good ending;
Almost 75 years after they distinguished themselves as true American heroes during World War II, an elite group of civilian women pilots have only themselves to cling to in camaraderie, as they remain hugely ignored and unsung today. What little recognition they have managed to receive came slowly and, for many, too late.
Back in 2010, WASP survivors were celebrated when they were awarded the Congressional Gold Medal in front of one of the largest crowds ever assembled at the nation’s Capitol. One can only imagine what went through the collective hearts and minds of these, largely, unheralded patriot survivors, knowing that many of their precious sisters-inarms were not there to share this prestigious honor. Many WASP had not lived long enough to see this moment, but then again, the long wait was far too long in the first place. (Note: the acronym is WASP, not WASPs since WASP, itself, is plural for Women Airforce Service Pilots.) According to the Washington Bureau (Tom McIlroy) only about 170 women WASP survivors were able to make it to the steps of the Capitol building back then in 2010, all of them in their 80s and 90s at the time. Many were in wheelchairs.
Not many are left out of the original 1,830 WASP program. WASP survivor, Betty Berkstresser was there – after more than seven decades of historical neglect – and she was in full

I know it’s late notice, but I have two tickets for the Super Bowl in Minneapolis, MN at the new U.S. Bank Stadium on Sunday February 4th.

uniform. Berkstresser was once a young girl in the WASP uniform; a pioneer aviator with stardust in her eyes, and a spring in her step. She was 90-years-old at the 2010 festivities. But through the windows of her proud, aged eyes that day, one could easily peer past the wrinkles and still see the young girl she once. WASP survivor, Betty Berkstresser, though 90 years old – never looked younger that day when she hugged her Congressional Gold Medal. Remarkably, at age 97, Betty Berkstresser is still with us today. Berkstresser moves a lot slower now, and may not look much like a war hero. But she is, rightfully so, then and now. During that ceremony at the nation’s Capitol, she finally held her Congressional Gold Medal, signed into legislation by President Barack Obama, and bestowed to her (each WASP was given a replica) by both houses of the United States Congress.
Berkstresser, once again, had stardust in her eyes, as she once did as a young girl in WASP uniform, when she flew the skies – free from all the male discrimination she had to endure during those early war years. It was a long time coming, and she cradled the Congressional Gold Medal – the highest possible civilian award given by Congress – close to her, ever so tightly as if it were a long-lost child. Because, in many ways, it was. Lost over seven decades of neglect.

"I'll show you," she said and returned with a blank piece of paper. She rolled the paper into the typewriter and began striking the keys, leaving black letters of print on the page.
"WOW!" they exclaimed, "that's really cool...but how does it work like that? Where do you plug it in?" "There is no plug," she answered. "It doesn't need a plug."

ABWA Dinner Meeting and Speaker
Women Warrior Pilots Cont. from Page 2
Over the loudspeaker, a voice bellowed: “I believe this is the day when the people of America no longer hesitate in answering, ‘Do you know who the WASP are?’”
The words fell upon a crowd of oldtimers and youngsters, alike. A crowd so large that it was unable to fit into the Emancipation Hall. WASP kinfolk, and families of those who had since died, or were physically unable to travel, were assembled. Emotions ran deep and tears were seen on many faces. The words from the loudspeaker were from none other than Deanie Parrish, a surviving WASP who at 21 joined up to become a woman flier in 1943. She, too, was no longer young but, somehow, her words belied her age as they rang clear and strong, and as vibrant as she once was at 21. She is now 95 years old.
“It was both a privilege and an honor to serve our country during some of the darkest days of World War II,” Deanie Parrish would say. Parrish’s words could, with justification, have been filled with bitterness for all the years she and her co-patriots endured mistreatment as unimportant, secondhand participants in the war effort. Instead, Parrish used her uniform, and forum, to proclaim America’s greatness and, by so doing, buoyed herself and the country she served in the most noble of ways.
It is most ironic that the WASP engaged their biggest enemy – prejudice – at the very home-front which

they chose to defend. They had suffered extreme, overt prejudice from their male military counterparts as well as from the U.S. government as a whole – all of whom mistreated, ignored, or downplayed their heroic efforts. The WASP was begrudgingly, allowed to participate as military fliers only as a last resort, because there was a desperate need for them. Former WASP, Kaddy Steele, remembers the harsh stereotyping: “Women weren’t supposed to be doctors, lawyers, or engineers. I could be a nurse, a librarian or a teacher. Those were my choices. And if it wasn’t for the war and the fact that they were so short of pilots that . . . they condescended to let us enter the sanctum sanctorum. And they let us know that. They let us in because they needed us. They needed pilots.”
WASP WERE DENIED MILITARY STATUS DESPITE SELF-SACRIFICES. It became one of the most unique and inspiring chapters in American military annals. These dedicated, fiercely patriotic women took their place in history. But not without a hefty emotional, psychological, and physical price. Thirtyeight women would be killed in the line of duty, serving as legendary WASP. Yet for all their devotion, sacrifice, and love of country, they were cruelly, and shamefully, brushed aside and relegated to abject neglect. They obtained no official military status or benefits at the time.
WASP HAD TO PAY EXPENSES TO BURY THEIR OWN DEAD. Former WASP, Mary Louise Bowden Brown, tells of a heart-wrenching episode that would prove typical.

Brown recalls a train ride that she will long remember. Brown was escorting her beloved roommate’s casket from Texas to New York. Upon arrival, Brown had to inform her roommate’s parents that their young daughter (a WASP) was killed. The young WASP never received any military honors. No flag was given by the military to drape over her coffin and no official commemoration from the country she had just died for -- even acknowledged her. It is a most tragic tale with no happy ending. But the WASP never forsook their fallen sister. Out of necessity, these women were forced to take up a collection of their own for the fallen heroine. The military did not even give Brown the money to transport the body for the young girl’s burial. Sadly, this was not an isolated incident. It happened with every WASP death.
WOMEN PILOTS TAKE TO THE SKIES TO MAKE HISTORY. 1940 was a milestone year in avionics, particularly for women. Prior to America’s involvement in World War II, women pilots were chomping at the bit to involve themselves in the war overseas – as pilots! American pilots, such as Jacqueline “Jackie” Cochran volunteered for England’s Air Transport Auxiliary (ATA). Far more liberal than their American counterparts, England’s ATA was using female pilots since January, 1940. The American women who flew for the ATA became the first American female pilots to ever fly military aircraft. And into the record books they flew, unbridled. History’s first women military pilots flew frontline aircraft such as the

AMERICA’S SECRET WEAPONS: THE WASP! By contrast, the United States was far more reluctant than England to include women fliers in military aircraft, even in non-combat roles. However, as World War II raged on, it was soon discovered that women fliers could very well prove to be America’s secret weapon! In 1942, First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt declared: “This is not a time when women should be patient. We are in a war and we need to fight it with all our ability and every weapon possible. Women pilots, in this particular case, are a weapon waiting to be used.” The record books would prove Eleanor Roosevelt’s words to ring true. Even before the onset of World War II women pilots had distinguished themselves. The likes of Amelia Earhart, Jacqueline Cochran, Nancy Harkness Love, Bessie Coleman, and Harriet Quimby were just a few examples of women record-holders in aviation. It was a supreme shame not to tap into America’s ‘secret weapon.’ Eleanor Roosevelt’s cry to arms on behalf of America’s women pilots was a gauntlet thrown at America’s feet. It was now time for America to rise to new levels. It was time for history to turn a new page, and for women fliers to begin to write upon it.

On Saturday, January 27th, at 5:39 a.m., the City of Carlsbad Police Department and the City of Carlsbad Fire Department were called to the 3400 block of Don Jose Drive after a report of smoke and flames seen coming from a residence in the retirement community.
Multiple engines from both the Carlsbad Fire Department and the Oceanside Fire Department responded to the area and extinguished the fire. Two residents were evacuated from the fully engulfed residence. One of the residents, a 62 year-old female, was transported to an area hospital for minor injuries. Affected residents were connected with Red Cross in order to receive assistance. The cause of the fire is still under investigation. Serious Injury Traffic Collision
On January 27th, 2018 at 5:49 p.m., Officers from the Carlsbad Police Department responded to area of Carlsbad Boulevard and Cerezo Drive regarding a report of a serious injury collision. Upon arrival, Officers found that a motorcycle occupied by a male rider and a female passenger had gone down in the roadway and had collided with a vehicle. The Carlsbad Fire Department arrived and provided advanced life support to both the male and the female motorcyclists.
The male subject was flown by helicopter to an area hospital for life threatening injuries. The female passenger was also transported to an area hospital for treatment of moderate injuries. The occupants of the other vehicle were uninjured. The preliminary investigation suggests that the driver of the vehicle was attempting to make a U-turn and did not see the motorcycle approaching. The motorcycle rider lost control and laid it down, causing himself and his passenger to be ejected. The driver of the other vehicle remained at the scene and was fully cooperative. Alcohol or drugs do not appear to be a factor in this collision. At this time fault is still under investigation.
The motorcycle rider was identified as a 41 year-old male from San Diego. The female passenger was identified as a 35 year-old female, also from San Diego. The driver of the other vehicle was identified as a 33 year-old male from Carlsbad. Traffic Officers responded to the scene to conduct a full investigation. Brush Fire
On January 27th at 4:24 p.m., the City of Carlsbad Police Department and the City of Carlsbad Fire Department were called to the area of El Camino Real and the 78 east bound freeway on ramp for a report of a brush fire.
airplanes, playing karate, snorkeling and scuba diving ... and playing with sea lions. Yes, we played with sea lions.
Multiple engines from the Carlsbad Fire Department, Vista Fire Department and the Oceanside Fire Department responded to the area and extinguished the fire. The California Highway Patrol responded to assist due to reports of a male subject possibly responsible for the brush fire walking on the 78 freeway. Ultimately the male subject was taken into custody and was positively identified by witnesses on scene. The subject was identified as Ray Kersey, a 39 year old white male from Oceanside. Kersey was booked into the Vista Detention Facility for unlawfully causing a fire. The investigation into the incident is ongoing. Second Annual Stand Down A Great Success
The second annual North County Veterans Stand Down was held last weekend at the Green Oak Ranch in Vista. The four-day event helped homeless veterans and their families from across San Diego County receive services that could help get them off the streets, and in permanent housing.
NCVSD Chairman Matt Foster, who is also the commander of the Escondido VFW, said he and an army of volunteers were delighted with the turnout and the chance to serve needy veterans. Food and clothing, services such as dental, optometry, and basic medical were provided.
Good pal, Kevin Camperell, arranged for members of our Hidden Valley Kiwanis Club to help youngsters from Rose Elementary School in Escondido to tutor them. They are mostly Latino kids who speak English but are having some problems with reading.
We meet from 10:30 to 12:00 twice a week and have three separate students each. We have bonded, big time. The kids love us, we love them.

It has been a difficult task, putting out a weekly newspaper when you’re only able to type with your left hand. The healing process appears to be working and I’m now able to type with both hands so life gets a wee bit easier.
Thanks to our brilliant writer, Friedrich Gomez, who gave us several weeks of outstanding cover stories, to Evelyn Madison, who is always there to help out her old editor . . . and to a lot of other folks . . . we managed to get the job done.

Old timers will remember John Reynolds, owner of Reynolds Toyota at what is now the intersection of Broadway and Lincoln. We had a promotion to name the sea lion and the sea lion was on display at the auto dealership. When the winner was chosen the sea lion was donated to the San Diego Zoo and, for all I know, it may still be there. (This was back in the late 1970’s). As I recall, the winning entry for the sea lion’s name was “Esky.”
I reckon, however, that the sea lion is a bit long in the tooth. I am getting there as well. So, I shall forego any furtherskydiving, karate competions, and scuba diving. Not quite ready for the rocking chair but will scale the adventures down. My favorite adventure these days is helping young kids to learn to read.
Worry not about the kids at Rose School. The principal, faculty, and helpers (folks like us) have things well in hand and the kids are growing and learning. (You may want to consider volunteering for such a program.) Word has it that loads of football fans will descend on Vinz Wine Bar at 201 E. Grand, Escondido, with the intent to watch the Super Bowl this Sunday. I’lll be pulling for the Philadelphia Eagles but most of the smart money is being wagered on the Patriots. Should be a good game. Vinnie tells me he’s stocked up with all of your favorite beverages, beer, wine, and spirits . . . with lots of snacks and yummy good food.
Got an interesting phone call from Judy Fish on Monday of this week. She had seen last week’s column and was delighted to learn that I am a Benson Bunny; she is as well.

We’ll have a profile of this fascinating man in future issues of The Paper.

Women Warrior Pilots Cont. from Page 3
The Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASP) was first created in August of 1943, after the WAFS (Women’s Auxiliary Ferry Squadron) under the command of Nancy Harkness Love, and the WFTD (319th Women’s flying Training Detachment) commanded by Jacqueline Cochran, both combined into one, single entity: the WASP. Jacqueline Cochran had pushed for such a consolidation, and having better military connections, was kept on as WASP commander. The Army’s intention was to have women fill all the ‘flying jobs’ here in the United States, thereby relieving their male counterparts to travel and contribute to the front lines as military fliers. And it worked seamlessly. Women pilots were cultivated and trained to fly non-combat assignments: they flew newly-manufactured airplanes to various military bases and participated in test-piloting new aircraft as well. WASP PROVE TO MALE PILOTS THAT NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE. They even conducted test flights on the B-29, proving to male pilots that the B-29 was, indeed, easier and safer to fly than they (the male pilots) thought possible! The B-29 was thought to be a dangerous plane when engine fires flared up during early runs, and a top male pilot was killed testing it. The Army purposely used the WASP to test fly the B-29s to help ease the fear that male pilots harbored. Colonel Paul Tibbets handpicked Dora Doughery Strother and Dorethea Johnson Moorman to ‘fly market’ the B-29 at various military
bases. Such exercises by the women fliers kept proving to male pilots that if the controversial four-engine bomber was safe enough for women, it would prove safe enough for the reluctant male pilots. Col. Tibbets well remembers that historic moment: “They (the seasoned male combat pilots) were dumbfounded that two women could fly an airplane that way, when they said it wouldn’t fly! It had an amazing effect!” (“Fly Girls,” American Experience video, 2006).
MILITARY MALE PILOTS HATED & WERE JEALOUS OF THE WASP. However, hate, jealousy, and prejudice against WASP fliers ran deep within the male military ranks. Col. Tibbets recalls one such incident: “One of the men on that airplane (flown by WASP Strother and Moorman) went into the Operations Office and pulled off his ‘wings’ and threw them down on the desk of the Operations Office and said, ‘I’m finished – that’s the end of it!’” He was quickly told, “Lieutenant, pick up your ‘wings’ – you’re not finished until we tell you, your finished!!”
Such test flights were crucial in winning the war. Later, in 1945, it was this same Colonel Paul Tibbets who ended up piloting the American B-29 Superfortress (known as Enola Gay) that dropped the world’s first atomic bomb (code-named “Little Boy”) over Hiroshima, Japan, which put into motion the beginning of the end of World War II. MILITARY SABOTAGED WOMEN
PILOTS, CAUSING INNOCENT DEATHS! Despite their heroic contributions, the WASP was not always welcomed at the various air bases where they were sent. At Camp Davis, North Carolina, it was made clear they were not wanted. Many planes returning from overseas combat were in dire need of repair and were supposed to be fully repaired from any defects before being reassigned. The planes that were reassigned to WASP fliers were suspected of being neglected – on purpose! Women pilots experienced repeated engine failure. The WASP expressed concern that their planes were not being properly maintained. Former WASP, Ann Baumgartner Carl, remembers: “Airplane pilots flying the plane – if they see something wrong, they write it down. And it’s supposed to be taken off the flightline until it’s fixed. What they would do was, not ground the plane; they’d just write where the problem was – and off it would go (unfixed).” (“Fly Girls” video, Ibid)
death at Camp Davis lingered on in the minds of her WASP sisters. Former WASP, Dora Dougherty Strother, remembers the day, on August 23, 1943: “I don’t know what it could have been attributed to, but the fire was intense . . . they could not get Mabel out and she burned to death.”
WASP flier, 26-year-old Mabel Rawlinson, was among those whose

The episode devastated the WASP.
In a span of almost three years (beginning with the WAFS), from 1942 to 1944 (when the WASP program was disbanded), over one thousand women pilots flew test planes, instructed male pilots, and towed targets for anti-aircraft artillery practice. Some were young girls still in their teens, like 18-year-old Janet Lee Hutchinson and Marguerite “Ty” Hughes Killen, who passed her flight tests and got her commercial and flight instructor rating at the tender age of 18. (It was in August of 1943 that WASP training program lowered its age limit from 21 to 18 ½)
After two WASP had died and another one was seriously injured within one month, serious allegations of foul play by male discriminators were strongly suspected. It was clear to the aviatrix that the WASP plane crashes were caused by deliberate sabotage! Cochran would later admit that she found sugar in the gas tanks of one of the crashed WASP planes. But she was concerned that scandalous publicity might abolish her WASP program, so she did not publicize it at the time. (“Fly Girls,” Ibid).
NO WASP WAS EVER DRAFTED – THEY ALL VOLUNTEERED. The WASP were never drafted and forced into service (as many of their male counterparts were). Quite simply, they all could have just stayed at home. Perhaps some would have married, raised children, or worked in war factories to support the war effort, like Rosie the Riveter. Yet, they chose to come forward, out of their safe havens, into the shadow of war, to serve their country. And they did. And many died. WASP appli-

cants covered the spectrum of Americana: housewives, secretaries, waitresses, students, factory workers, nurses, and teachers. One was even a Ziegfeld chorus girl. Most WASP were white. Two were ChineseAmericans: Hazel Ying Lee, and Maggie Gee. Lee gave her life as a WASP when she died in a runway accident. Gee survived the war. Two were Mexican-American and there was one Native American WASP, Ola Mildred Rexroat, a young Oglala Sioux from South Dakota’s Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. Known for her great beauty, Ola Rexroat answered to two nicknames: “Millie” and “Sexy Rexy.” The young female patriot survived the war and later joined the U.S. Air Force where she continued to serve her country. Ola Mildred Rexroat, the only Native American woman to ever serve as a WASP, died at the great age of 99 on June 28, 2017 in the Great Sioux state of South Dakota.
Due to the prevailing racial views of that era, African-American WASP applicant, Mildred L. Hemmons, was asked to withdraw her WASP application by the U. S. military in charge at the time. She was rejected to fly by the all-black Tuskegee Airmen because she was a woman; now she would be rejected by the WASP military board because of her race. She had come highly qualified, earning her Bachelor of Arts degree at age 19 and earning her pilot’s license the following year, in 1941. As a flyer, Hemmons was assessed by her flight instructor as “Among the best of pilots.” Seventy years later, shortly before her death in October of 2011 she would be retroactively recognized as a WASP. She died, or as the WASP phrase it, took her “Final Flight” at the age of 90.
WASP patriotism seemed to go off the chart. They were overly-eager to abandon the safety of their own homes in order to sacrifice and protect their beloved country. WASP flyer, Mildred (Jane) Doyle, recalls: “Men had to be 5-foot-4, but women could be 5-foot-2 ½. So I stretched, and passed the physical and got into the program that summer!” Today, at age 96, Mildred (Jane) Doyle is the last living WASP survivor from the state of Michigan. Nancy Parrish, Executive Director of “Wings Across America” and daughter of immortal WASP flyer, Deanie Parrish said of Doyle: “Jane is probably one of the most fearless of the WASPs still alive!”
More than 25,000 women applied to the WASP program. Only 1,830 were accepted. And only 1,074 passed. Pilot training was harsh and unforgiving. Only 50 percent of the WASP trainees made it to graduation. Unlike other military branches, WASP trainees had to pay out-ofpocket expenses for their travel to training camp, their food at mess hall, and their barrack lodgings. On top of it all, they experienced rejection and were regarded by many ruthless male counterparts as useless, and unworthy to fly, simply because they were women. AVIATION EXPERTS SAY WASP OFTEN SUPERIOR FLYERS THAN
MEN. Those WASP who went on, distinguished themselves beyond expectations and, eventually, served as role models for others to follow in their footsteps. The WASP had every reason to be proud of their ranks – they had comparable flying records as their male counterparts. Some said their flying records were even superior to male pilots. Famed WWII pilot, Chuck Yeager (Charles Elwood “Chuck” Yeager) said of the WASP fliers, “They could’ve been sent to the war had the law allowed it and they would probably had done as good as the men had they had equal experience.” (“Fly Girls” video, Ibid). Aviation historian and expert, Kimberly Johnson, said: “The German party (during the Second World War) said if women were flying during that time for Germany, the war might have ended differently.”
OVER 60-MILLION MILES OF FLIGHT! The accomplishments of the WASP are monumental. Even breathtaking. They were stationed at 120 air bases across the United States. They flew over 60-million miles of operational flight, in 78 different types of aircraft, to 108 bases. They delivered 12,650 military airplanes and were crucial in helping win the war. Some of them were so exceptional in their skills that they qualified and were given the right to test rocket-propelled planes, and to pilot jet-propelled aircraft. And though they flew for the military, took the military oath, and died in the service of their country – they had no minimal medical care, no life insurance, and in some cases, they had no fire truck for possible crashes, and they (sometimes) were given a ‘loaned’ ambulance. Thirty-eight died; eleven in training and 27 on active duty. Through all of this, they faced brutal discrimination, and even death – some deaths now thought to have come about through deliberate, planned sabotage from their own countrymen!
By 1944, air superiority had been achieved overseas and U.S. airmen began to come home. Pilot training programs halted in the U.S. and all pilots (those returning from war as well as male flight instructors at home) now faced the draft – as foot soldiers. However, if the men could take over the jobs held by the WASP fliers, they would be spared the draft. A campaign was soon launched against the women fliers. Airmen, powerful columnists in newspapers, and even Congress attacked and called for the dismantlement of the WASP program. Even the tide of public opinion began to turn against the women fliers. It was only six months earlier that the general populace thought it noble and patriotic to be a WASP. America was now yearning to return to pre-war customs. Women, they said, were to be in their homes, not flying airplanes. And with the unemployment rate after the war rising dramatically from three million to 12 million, the timing looked atrocious for the WASP program. It was now considered, by many, to be unpatriotic to be a WASP. Congress held hearings, focusing heavily on the ‘alleged’ high costs of training women pilots. The anti-WASP campaign was in full swing. The national sentiment seemed to
The State of the State
Governor Brown gave his 16th, and final, State of the State address on January 25th. Term limits prevent future governors from matching that record!
Why do we do a "State of the State" anyway?
Article 5, Section 2 of California's first Constitution says: `The Governor shall report to the Legislature each calendar year on the condition of the State and may make recommendations.’ That requirement is the basis for this annual event.
Early on, the Governor’s main opportunity to make a high-profile speech was the inaugural address, since reporting the state’s condition was done in writing. But the inaugural address only happened every four years, making it an important but rare occasion. The inaugural even included a 19 gun salute and the state song, `I love You California,’ but over the years ceremonies were toned down. The yearly State of the State gradually took on more significance, even without cannon salutes. The first report to the Legislature
be that if women pilots wished in to be in the military, they should join the WAC (Women’s Army Corps).
THE FIGHT TO KEEP THE WASP IS LOST. WASP architect and commander, Jacqueline Cochran, saw things differently. She wanted the Army to militarize the WASP program and keep it airborne. Her close friend and contact, Gen. Henry “Hap” Arnold, of the USAAF, suggested to Cochran that she militarize the WASP under the WAC program. But Cochran was certain that if that happened, the WASP would be kept permanently on the ground. There were nearly one hundred thousand WAC serving in the army and none of them were fliers. If Cochran were designated head of the WAC program, her WASP fliers would stay in the air. Her hopes to accomplish this were dashed when another immensely talented woman, Colonel Oveta Cup Hobby, was designated director of the WAC. It was no secret that Cochran was furious! Her ultimatum to Gen. Arnold was simple: militarize the WASP program – or shut it down. Cochran refused to be subordinate to Col. Oveta Hobby. As Cochran confided to a friend, “I will not serve under a woman who doesn’t know her ass from a propeller!” WASP ACHIEVEMENTS SEALED AND HIDDEN. The once mighty WASP were officially dismantled on December 20, 1944. The end had finally come. The official records of WASP achievements were sealed for decades after they were disbanded, further shrouding their true contributions. Their service records were
under the 1849 Constitution was presented by Governor Peter Burnett. The Governor stated that ‘The population increased beyond all expectation – commerce extended – our ports filled with shipping from every nation and clime….’ In some ways little has changed. On the other hand, he further stated that “The Federal Government is one of limited delegated powers….yet outside that sphere and in reference to the reserved power of the States or the People, it has nothing to do.’ Times have certainly changed!
Much like the State of the Union speech in Washington DC, the Governor enters from the rear of the chamber and is greeted by applause while he shakes hands with legislators from both parties. Despite political differences, the event serves as a bipartisan re-affirmation of our common heritage and shared belief in freedom and the rule of law. Minority Floor Leader Marie Waldron, R-Escondido, represents the 75th Assembly District in the California Legislature, which includes the communities of Bonsall, Escondido, Fallbrook, Hidden Meadows, Pala, Palomar Mountain, Pauma Valley, Rainbow, San Marcos, Temecula, Valley Center and Vista.
marked and sealed as “Classified” or “Secret.” For all their mistreatment, and being disallowed veteran status in the service of their country, many went to the grave with an unfulfilled heart. But a grateful nation slowly began to change all of that. In 1977 the United States did an official ‘about face.’ America finally embraced these fly girls as true veterans under the G.I. Bill Improvement Act. Then, in 1979, all WASP were issued official Honorable Discharges. In 1984, each WASP was awarded the World War II Victory Medal. And almost 8 years ago today, they were given the highest civilian award by the U.S. Congress – the Congressional Gold Medal. (Note: the Presidential Medal of Freedom is the highest civilian award given by the president. The Congressional Gold Medal is the highest award given by congress. There are fewer Congressional Gold Medals awarded than the Presidential Medal of Freedom.) WASP CEREMONY TOO LATE FOR MANY. It was a long time coming. Most of the WASP never made it to the steps of the nation’s Capitol, nearly 8 years ago, in 2010. Former WASP, Marcella Tucker, never made it to those Capitol steps that milestone day. The 90-year-old former WASP from San Jose, California, was too weak from pneumonia to make the long journey. She was unable to join her sisters, all whom once rained thunder from the skies, together. The journey was

something she could easily have done as a trail-blazing, heroic WASP, in her greener years, when she was still exploring the Wild Blue Yonder. But, no matter. The Congressional Gold Medal did, finally, come to her in the mail, three weeks later. She loved it. She cradled it. She kissed it.

Their numbers continue to drop and these precious WASP survivors are vanishing with the years. When this story was filed to The Paper in January of 2018, Carol C. Cain, from the National WASP WWII Museum at Avenger Field, Texas, informed me through an email: “There are only 63 WASP surviving as of today. They range in age from 95 to 103.”
Tears came to my eyes as I read Carol C. Cain’s message to me. As the WASP so beautifully phrase it, many WASP survivors are: “Taking their final flight.” Soon, there will be none. None to hear us say, “We love you.” This year’s WASP Homecoming Reunion will be held on May 26, 2018 at Avenger Field, Texas. It will be the 75th Anniversary celebration.

But, it was her flying that set her free. “When I was in the sky, I had the whole sky before me. There were no limits to where I could go,” she said with a gentle smile. No truer words. No truer reward. Tucker passed away shortly after receiving her Congressional Gold Medal.
Once more, she has been set free. When a member of the WASP dies, they say “She took her final flight.” When the Congressional Gold Medals were handed out at the nation’s Capitol in 2010, only 170 WASP were present to receive their prestigious awards. At their reunion on May 23, 2015, only 21 WASP were able to make the journey; most WASP survivors could not make the journey due to health complications. And in the following year on May 28, 2016, only 18 WASP survivors made it to their annual reunion at Avenger Field, in Sweetwater, Texas. Last year, at the 2017 WASP Homecoming, the event celebrated Barbara Heinrich’s birthday as she turned 101 years old! Only 11 WASP were physically able to make the trip last year while most were forced to stay at home due to fragile health.

exclaimed. "Someone should have invented this a long time ago!" Wisdom of Age
A guy is 73 years old and loves to fish. He was sitting in his boat the other day when he heard a voice say, 'Pick me up.'
He looked around and couldn't see anyone. He thought he was dreaming when he heard the voice again say, 'Pick me up..' He looked in the water, and there, floating on the top, was a frog. The man said, 'Are you talking to me?'
The frog said, 'Yes, I'm talking to you. Pick me up, kiss me, and I'll turn into the most beautiful woman you've ever seen. I'll make sure that all your friends are envious and jealous because I will be your bride!' The man looked at the frog, reached over, picked it up carefully, and placed it in his front pocket. The frog said, 'What, are you nuts? Didn't you hear what I said? I said kiss me, and I'll be your beautiful bride.'
When General Douglas MacArthur retired from the military in 1951, he stated famously, "Old soldiers never die, they just fade away." But five-star generals are not the only ones who never die: Golfers never die, they just lose their drive.
Lumberjacks never die, they just pine away. Accountants don't die, they just lose their balance.
Bank managers don't die, they just lose interest.
Vehicle mechanics? They re-tire every day. Teachers don't retire, they just mark

One of the most convenient yet controversial bygone public entities in Southern California was known to commuters as “The Red Car.” Long before there were freeways, a complex electric-powered commuter transit system went throughout the Greater Los Angeles area.
The man ultimately responsible for building most of the electric car system was Henry Huntington, nephew of Collis P. Huntington, who was one of the “Big Four” tycoons responsible for building the Central Pacific Railroad – a.k.a. known as The Southern Pacific line. Electric trolleys first appeared in Los Angeles in 1887. In 1895 the Pasadena & Pacific Railway was created from a merger of the Pasadena and Los Angeles routes. In 1898, in friendly competition with his uncle's Southern Pacific, Henry Huntington bought the narrow gauge, city-oriented Los Angeles Railway known colloquially as the 'Yellow Car' system. In 1901, Huntington formed the sprawling interurban, standard gauge Pacific Electric Railway (the PE), known as the 'Red Car' system, centered at 6th and Main Streets in Los Angeles.
By 1910, the Huntington trolley systems stretched over approximately 1,300 miles of southern California. At its most robust size, the system contained more than 20 streetcar lines and 1,250 trolleys, most running through the core of Los Angeles and serving such nearby neighborhoods as the Crenshaw district, West Adams, Echo Park, Westlake, Hancock Park, Exposition Park, Vernon, Boyle Heights and Lincoln Heights; The system integrated the 1902 acquisition, the Mount Lowe Scenic Railway above Altadena in the San Gabriel Mountains. Steam-powered railroads were one part of the Pacific Electric Railway. Revenue from passenger traffic rarely generated a profit, unlike freight. The real money for the investors was in supplying electric power to new communities and in developing and selling real estate. To get the railways and electricity to their towns, local groups offered the Huntington interests opportunities in local land. Soon Huntington and his partners had significant holdings in the land companies developing Naples, Bay City (Seal Beach), Huntington Beach, Newport Beach and Redondo Beach.
The Huntington Mansion, built in 1915 is now the centerpiece of the Huntington Library.
In the pre-automobile era, electric
interurban rail was the most economical way to connect outlying suburban and exurban parcels to central cities.
However, by 1920, when most of the company's holdings had been developed, their major income source began to deplete. Many rural passenger lines were unprofitable, with losses offset by revenue generated from passenger lines in populated corridors and from freight operations. As early as 1925, the least-used Red Car lines were converted to cheaper bus routes.
Huntington's involvement with urban rail was intimately tied to his real estate development operations. Real estate development was so lucrative for both Huntington and Southern Pacific they could use the Red Car as a losing leader. In 1927 Henry E. Huntington died in Philadelphia while undergoing surgery. He and his wife, Arabella, are buried with a large monument in the Gardens of the Huntington Library in San Marino, California.
Continuing on, the PE carried increased passenger loads during World War II, when Los Angeles County's population nearly doubled as war industries concentrated in the region attracting millions of workers.
Aware that most new arrivals planned to stay in the region after the war, local municipal governments, Los Angeles County and the state agreed a massive infrastructure improvement program was necessary. At that time politicians agreed to construct a web of freeways across the region. This was seen as a better solution than a new mass transit system or an upgrade of the PE.
Large-scale land acquisition for new freeway construction began in earnest in 1951. The original four freeways of the area, the Hollywood, Arroyo Seco (formerly Pasadena), Harbor, and San Bernardino, were in use or being completed. Partial completion of the San Bernardino Freeway to Aliso Street near downtown Los Angeles led to traffic chaos when inbound automobiles left the freeway and entered city streets. For years, even to this day, the demise of the Pacific Electric was thought to have been brought down by General Motors and various rubber companies, all of which stood to sell more of their products from the millions of automobiles traveling on L.A.’s vast freeway system. A 1974 inquiry by the U.S. Senate heard allegations about the role that General Motors and other companies played in the dismantlement of streetcar systems across the United States and in particular in Los Angeles. The investigation became known as the “Great American Streetcar Scandal.” The plot of the 1988 movie “Who Framed Roger Rabbit” is loosely modeled on the alleged conspiracy to dismantle the streetcar lines in Los Angeles. For more than a half century a nickel would take you all over most of Southern California’s urban areas, but those days are gone forever. Thanks to politics, Mr. Huntington’s vast and efficient electric-powered transportation system has given way to gasoline and rubber.

Lady Marmalade is pet of the week at your Rancho Coastal Humane Society. She’s a 4 year old, 42 pound, Retriever / Australian Cattle Dog mix.
Lady Marmalade is a sweet and sensitive girl. She is still getting used to her new surroundings at Rancho Coastal Humane Society. She’s very gentle and loving. She will do best in a quiet home where she can settle in at her own pace. Her new family will need to help boost her confidence with patience, reassurance and positive reinforcement. Lady Marmalade will prefer to be the only dog in her home so she doesn’t have to share her human’s love. The $145 adoption fee for Lady Marmalade includes medical exam, vaccinations, spay, and microchip. For more information call 760-753-6413, visit Rancho Coastal Humane Society at 389 Requeza Street in Encinitas, or log on to SDpets.org.
Storm Drain Repair
At a recent community meeting, I was asked about the prolonged closure of city traffic lanes for no apparent purpose. Orange cones and construction signs prevent drivers from using segments of traffic lanes eastbound along Midway near Grand Avenue. Weeks have turned into months and no construction has been done leaving many residents to wonder if the city simply forgot the orange
alone. High reincarceration rates take a significant toll on the regional economy, children and families, and the overall safety and quality of life in our communities. Join The Malin Burnham Center for Civic Engagement for the free San Diego premiere of the documentary Beyond the Wall. Following the film screening, local leaders, experts and attendees will engage in a conversation about how San Diego agencies and organizations are working together to reduce recidivism and create opportunities to improve the criminal justice system and our community. The date is Tuesday, February 20th, 4:30pm check-in and Gallery Tours; 5pm screening; 6:15 panel and community conversation; 6:45 reception with complimentary appetizers and drinks, held at the Museum of Photographic Arts, Balboa Park, 1649 El Prado, San Diego, 92101. Guest speakers are Dana Littlefield, Courts Reporter, Mack Jenkins, Senior Policy Advisor, Council of State Governments Justice Center, Peter Callstrom, CEO, San Diego Workforce Partnership, and Robert Smith, Director, Center for Employment Opportunities, San Diego.

Lincoln, a cheerful 2-year-old American Staffordshire Terrier mix, is looking for a loving home to call his own. He is vibrant, enthusiastic and gets along well with children and other dogs. Some of his favorite things include car rides, long walks and hanging out with people. In his previous home, Lincoln lived outdoors, so he would love a patient family who can help him learn good house manners. His adoption fee includes his neuter, permanent microchip identification, current vaccinations, 30 days worry free insurance from Trupanion Insurance and a certificate for a free veterinary exam! Lincoln is available for adoption at San Diego Humane Society’s Escondido Campus at 3450 E Valley Parkway. To learn more about making him part of your family, please call (760) 888-2275.
As it turns out, the closure of lanes is temporary but necessary. Escondido performed a video examination of storm drains throughout the City. The process revealed segments of storm drains that are weak, rusted or eroded and at risk of collapse. A storm drain failure could lead to additional and costly infrastructure damage so early repair is preferred and less expensive.

The most significant segment of damaged storm drain is under the road at Midway and Grand avenue. Repairs are scheduled to begin in early 2018. Residents living nearby should have received a written notice explaining the interrupted access but those of us who simply pass through are left to wonder. Rest assured, there is a reason and a plan for repair. In the meantime, we must share the remaining eastbound lane.

was alive, “Oh, I thought you were dead.” There were no tears of joy or excitement, or “I’m happy you are alive.”
Pastor Richard Huls (Retired) The Day I Died
Recently, I received a phone call to ask if I had died. The word was out. Actually, the phone call was not in jest. I suppose if I did not answer the phone, it would confirm my early demise. But I did answer and assured the calling party that I was very much alive. However, the experience led me to do some thinking about the reactions of a number of people who had heard the same news. There is much talk these days about fake news and this seemed to be a part of that. How quickly people accept any news without much questioning. Amazing to me, was the reaction of some close relationships, which seemed to be rather casual with their words, when they heard I
It makes me wonder if people even care if I’m alive or dead. There wasn’t even a call to comfort my wife or family. I cannot believe that there is such insensitivity in my world of friends. Or perhaps they thought it was a joke, even a cruel one. Nevertheless, it is worth pondering. How much do we really mean in this world? Will we be missed if we die? If so, for how long?
In most funerals I conduct, there often are these expressions, “They will be missed” or “They are in a better place.” Personally, I have trouble with both of these expressions. However, what really does help is, if there can also be some feeling when we do die, that people will express more than, “So and so died.” Life is over soon enough and it would be nice if there is at least a tear and some expression of sorrow.
Now, when I do die, hopefully, some of you, when hearing of my death, will at least call my family with some words of condolence, not for me, but for them and for family members of anyone else who dies. Just take the time to care.

Vista • Mayor Judy Ritter With the upcoming arrival of spring comes the annual tradition of “spring cleaning”. During this time of the year many homeowners take on the task of organizing garages, cleaning out attics, and clearing off decks and patios to prepare for another wonderful Vista summer. While clearing out the closets or garage, think about items that the family no longer needs or wants. Consider diverting as much of these discarded items out of the local landfill by donating them to charity. Cleaning out the garage? If you have old and broken electronics, old paint or oil cans, used batteries, or other toxic products that are not suitable for

donation, do not throw them away with your regular trash. Instead, take them to the Vista Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) facility.
Residents should drop off household hazardous waste at the collection facility located at 1145 E. Taylor Street (open from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturdays, except holidays). While there is no fee to Vista residents, proof of residency is required. When tackling spring cleaning this year, please think twice about helping others and helping the environment. Diverting solid wastes from landfills and properly disposing of household hazardous wastes is good for the whole community.

So, on his 21st birthday, Dallas and his big brother Damon, headed out to the lake. "If they did it, I can too!" he insisted.
When Dallas and Damon arrived at the lake, they rented a canoe and began paddling. When they got to the middle of the lake, Dallas stepped off of the side of the boat... and nearly drowned. Furious and somewhat embarrassed, he and Damon headed for home.
When Dallas arrived back at the family home, he asked his grandmother for an explanation. "Grandma, why can't I walk on water like my father, and his father, and his father before him?" His sweet old grandmother took Dallas by the hand, looked into his eyes, and explained, "That's because your father, grandfather, and greatgrandfather were born in January, You were born in June, dear."
Dallas heard that his father, grandfather and great-grandfather had all walked on water on their 21st birthdays.

House calls, privacy, Windows updates and security part I of III
“House calls” refer to our on-site services for home and business. Onsite service is useful when the problem is site related. Things like network maintenance, software loading and the installation and set-up up of PCs and peripheral hardware usually require on-site service. Things like virus scans, data transfers and reloading operating systems are typically done more cost effectively in the shop. If a job requires the full attention of the technician from beginning to end it is a good candidate for onsite service. Tasks that require only a fraction of the techni-

Home or business installations that require the set-up of one or more PCs within a wired or wireless network with peripherals, (printer, speakers entertainment center, nanny or security cams etc) certainly require onsite service. But for some very common tasks, doing them on site would make no sense. Saving files and replacing infected or corrupt Windows OS is a very common practice. The first step is to save the user files, then reformat the hard drive, reload the OS, download and install device drivers, copy user files back to the original hard drive and finally spend ten or fifteen minutes with the user in order to show them where their files are located. All of this activity requires about two and a half hours of the technicians attention over a time span of perhaps fifteen hours. Most of that time the PC is scanning, downloading, installing or updating all by itself while the technician works on other jobs. Our customer only pays only for the actual technician’s time 0f 2.5 hrs ($150). If the technician had to remain on-site with no opportunity to work on other tasks the charge would be for the entire 15 hrs on site, at least $900. We wouldn’t do that to our customers but if you really want to pay that kind of money to watch someone twiddle their thumbs, call the Geek Squad from Best Buy, they don’t mind a bit. There is another situation where onsite can make sense for home users. A home user may need help with things like synching devices, sending pictures, printing, scanning, copying,
