It's a relaxing thing, he thought, cruising on the Mighty Mississippi River.
The shoreline, covered with thick Edenlike jungles of beautifully green trees, seems to beckon one to stop and spend some time. But, of course, you don't. You're on board a paddlewheel steamship, waited on hand and foot by a retinue of highly trained wait staff, equally high trained pursers, tour guides, entertainers . . . it's a happy ship and a happy time.

He didn't want to go at first. It was Her idea. He fought it . . . but then they made the first trip two years ago, out of New Orleans. And he was persuaded. These cruises are fun . . . many memories to be made.
She had made the reservations for this trip without seeking his approval. His approval was quickly granted. He's a quick learner.
A Mississippi Cruise is like no other, he thought. 'You travel up river at about 56 miles per hour, go down river at about 11 miles per hour. It is a leisurely pace . . . plenty of time to slow down and begin to learn how to enjoy life. It is difficult to totally relax, being a newspaperman. There are still deadlines to be met . . . and communication by cell phone and the Internet is not always possible when on the river. And you have to get the tasks done as readers and advertisers are counting on you. These were the thoughts that stayed in his mind even while he tried to relax.
The itinerary called for a departure from St. Louis, going to visit Hannibal, Missouri, the boyhood home of Samuel Clemens, whom we all later learned to call 'Mark Twain,' and then Nauvoo, Illinois, one of the first enclaves of the Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter Day Saints, whom we have come to call Mormons. But Ol' Man River, as we were to later learn, had plans of his own. Upon boarding the paddlewheel steamer and being shown to their stateroom, they were in awe of its size. Lawdy, you could play a game of tennis in that stateroom. Doubles.
It was at least three times the size of the stateroom they had on an earlier trip.
There had been a lot of rain in the Midwest. He took note of this prior to departure, and a good friend and traveling companion, Dave Schmitt, of Escondido, had said that the forecast called for four days of rain. "Great," he thought, "a five day cruise, four of which will be filled with rain." As it happened, the weather turned out beautifully; but, the earlier rains had swollen the Mississippi to the point that the water was so high the steamship was unable to pass beneath several bridges en route to Hannibal and Nauvoo so a detour was

made. The boat diverted to Chester, Illinois.
Now, Chester, Illinois, is not a remarkable city. It is very small. It has a courthouse and a library and a main street. Oh, yes. It also has a statue of Popeye.
The creator of Popeye is from Chester, Illinois. It is the chief claim to fame of that city. The guy, Elzie Crisler Segar, had been cartooning for awhile and built his cartoons around a family named Oyl, one of whom was a woman named Olive . . . Olive Oyl. Later, a sailor appeared by the name of Popeye. It was supposed to be a temporary character . . but it caught the public's fancy and Popeye became the central character of the cartoon, which then grew to be internationally famous and made Segar a wealthy man. All of his principal characters were modeled after residents of Chester. Popeye was modeled after Frank "Rocky" Fiegel,
Obituaries Memorials Area Services Page 12
Olive Oyl was modeled after Ms. Dora Paskel; J. Wellington Wimpy is based on Segar's old boss, J. William Schurchert, owner and operator of the Chester Opera House. These people all physically resembled their characters. Photos show a clear resemblance to his cartoon characters, particularly to Popeye. He was not impressed with Chester. It was not his choice of a place to visit on the river, even though he acknowledged a grudging admiration for Popeye. He sailed next to Hannibal, Missouri.
They had sailed all night and arrived at the Hannibal port at 4am. He was sound asleep. So was she. He was awakened by the blast of a passing train that ran parallel to the shore and only about 50 feet away from the dockside. He got up, threw some clothes on, and went outside to watch the boat crew prepare the boat for landing, do the tie downs, tighten up the lines, and secure the boat.
He went back to bed. For the next hour he marveled at how Hannibal, Missouri, had arranged for trains to come by every 15 minutes commencing at 4am and blow their horns loud enough to raise the dead.
Eventually, he fell back asleep and awakened at 7am, bleary eyed and tired. But it was time to grab a quick breakfast at the buffet line, then head into Hannibal to do some research. He wondered what would have become of Hannibal, Missouri, had it not produced a genius like Samuel Clemens. Clemens, who was born in nearby Florida, Missouri, grew up in Hannibal and drew many of his characters from family members and friends; some photos remain of the principals from whom he drew his characters. One of the most important, however, Tom Blankenship, upon whom Huck Finn is based, has no known photograph. There is a photograph of the Blankenship house, and

The mind of Samuel Clemens was absolutely brilliant. His observations on the world, his pithy sayings; they survive to this day and are just as funny, just as cogent, just as piercing as they were when he first wrote them . . . or uttered them on the lecture circuit.
vate tour. Being media does have its perks, he thought. One of them is meeting folks like Ila and Henry. Both are, as you would imagine, very knowledgeable about Samuel Langhorn Clemens. Henry, in particular, is a storehouse of knowledge about him. This you would expect from a former History Teacher and holder of several degrees, including Museum Science.
Clemens would adopt the name "Mark Twain" and go on to make a fortune, then lose it, declaring bankruptcy, then pulled out of bankruptcy . . . built himself a lovely home in Connecticut . . . and would eventually die there.
During all these years, the books of Mark Twain, most notably "Tom Sawyer" and "Huckleberry Finn" put Hannibal, Missouri, on the map. Today, somewhere between 50,000 and over 100,000 tourists each year visit the city for Twainrelated events. Had it not been for Twain . . . Hannibal would be just another river town . . would have remained small, nondescript . . . perhaps drifting off to nothingness.
But, because of Twain, it is today a thriving community. Still small, around 18,000, but vibrant. Good people live there. Kind people. Helpful people.
He was pleased that a lovely gal, Ila Bunn, and her boss, Henry Sweets, of the Mark Twain Museum, took him under their wing, made a computer and the Internet available to him so he could make a deadline for his paper. Ila, the always smiling Ila, gave He and She a pri-

The only cow in a small town in Northern Italy stopped giving milk. So the town folk found they could buy a cow in Sicily quite cheaply. So, they brought the cow over from Sicily.
It was absolutely wonderful. It produced lots of milk every day and everyone was happy. They bought a bull to mate with the cow to get more cows, so they'd never have to worry about their milk supply again.
They put the bull in the pasture with the cow but whenever the bull tried to mount the cow, the cow would move away. No matter what approach the bull tried, the cow would move away from the bull, and he was never able to do the deed.
Going upriver they had Missouri on their side of the boat, going down river they had Illinois on their side of the boat. They were amazed at the seeming tranquility of the river yet it was clear that this was a powerful, treacherous river. In Hannibal the river was two feet above flood stage at 16 feet; in an earlier flood the river had risen to 32 feet. Even so, today we saw many homes, on stilts, surrounded by water. One home they saw had been crushed by a falling tree. The raging river had eroded the dirt surrounding a tree that
The people were very upset and decided to go to the local veterinarian, Dr. Santucchi, who was very wise, to tell him what was happening and to ask his advice.
"Whenever the bull tries to mount our cow, she moves away. If he approaches from the back, she moves forward. When he approaches her from the front, she backs off. If he attempts it from the one side, she walks away to the other side." The veterinarian rubbed his chin thoughtfully and pondered this before asking, "Did you by chance, buy this cow in Sicily?" The people were dumbfounded, since no one had ever mentioned that they had brought the cow over from Sicily.
"You are truly a wise veterinarian," they said. "How did you know that we got the cow from Sicily?" The Vet replied with a distant look in his eyes and says, "My wife is from Sicily."
Why Italians Can't be Paramedics
Vinny and Sal are out in the woods hunting when suddenly Sal grabs his chest and falls to the ground. He doesn’t seem to be breathing; his eyes are rolled back in his head.
Vinny whips out his cell phone and calls 911. He tells the operator, "I think Sal is dead! What should I do? The operator, in a calm soothing
was, perhaps, a hundred years old. The earth gave up its hold on the tree and it toppled over, demolishing someone's riverfront summer home. There were luxury summer homes, there were cheap and ugly mobile homes, their were shanties, there were little more than camper shells. The River spared none. They were all subjected to flooding and, to some, destruction. These are big boats. The Mississippi Queen is 382 feet long and generates 2000 horsepower of energy with her watertube type boilers. It's an all steel boat with three main rudders, two rudders aft and one bow thruster. She carries 107,800 gallons of fresh waer and carries 329,000 of Bunker C(#6) type diesel. If we estimate the cost of diesel at $1 per gallon we're talking $329,000 each time this boat is fueled. A tank of fuel should last about 16 days so we're talking a pretty expensive operating cost just for fuel alone. Add in the fact that the ship carries 157 crew members to service up to 422 passengers (a ratio of about one staff member for every 2.7 passengers. These 422 passengers are accommodated in 208 staterooms. To get some idea of the commerce of The River one need only recognize that it is quite common to see a towboat (for they are not called tugboats on The River) with two to three barges. Think about this for a moment.
voice says, "Just take it easy and follow my instructions. First, let's make sure he's dead."
There is a silence. And then a gun shot is heard.
Vinny's voice comes back on the line, “Okay, now what?” •••• My goal for 2015 was to lose just 10 pounds. Only 15 to go. •••• Ate salad for dinner! Mostly croutons & tomatoes. Really just one big, round crouton covered with tomato sauce. And cheese. FINE, it was a pizza. I ate a pizza. •••• How to prepare Tofu: 1. Throw it in the trash. 2.Grill some Meat. •••• I just did a week's worth of cardio after walking into a spider web. •••• I don't mean to brag but......I finished my 14-day diet in 3 hours and 20 minutes. •••• A recent study has found that women who carry a little extra weight live longer than men who mention it. •••• Kids today don't know how easy they have it. When my kids were young, they had to walk 9 feet through shag carpet to change the TV channel. •••• Senility has been a smooth transition for me. •••• Remember back when we were kids and every time it was below zero out they closed school? Me neither.
Each barge carries 1500 tons. A large semi-trailer truck by comparison carries 26 tons. Thus, when you see a three barge tow, which represents 4500 tons of material being moved, you would have to see a convoy of 174 semi-trailer trucks on the highway to carry an equivalent amount of material! To take this one step further, if you have a 15 barge tow (which though not as common as a two the three barge tow is not uncommon) you would see some 22,500 tons of material being moved. Now let's match that up to what it would take our nation's trucking fleet to move the same amount of material. You would need . . . . a convoy of 870 semi trailer trucks to move an equivalent amount! This, we suspect, would cause just a wee bit of a traffic jam on our nation's highways. The River . . . the Old Man . . . Mississippi. It's clear that Native Americans, whom we call Indians, were the first to use the Mississippi. The Sauk and Kickapoo Indians called it MecheSepe. The Menomonee called it MechaSepua. The Chippewa called MezeZebe, and the Ottawa called it MississSepi. In all these slight variations, mecha, meche, meze, and mississ mean the same thing: large or big. Sapa, sepua, sepe, zebe, and sepi all mean: river. So the correct translation of any of these words is "large river." This large river was at first negotiated by canoe. That soon proved inadequate for settlers. Being innovative, they created the flatboat and rafts. They were often crudely built for a one-way trip, then loaded with cargo and floated downstream to New Orleans. Cargo was sold and unloaded and the flatboats and rafts were broken up and sold for lumber.

One Sunday morning, a mother went in to wake her son and tell him it was time to get ready for church, to which he replied, "I'm not going." "Why not?" she asked.
“I'll give you two good reasons," he said. "(1), they don't like me, and (2), I don't like them." His mother replied, "I'll give you two good reasons why you SHOULD go to church: (1) You're 59 years old, and (2) you're the pastor!" The Picnic
A Jewish Rabbi and a Catholic Priest met at the town's annual 4th of July picnic. Old friends, they began their usual banter.

Special Musical Guest Closed Out “Great Kindness Challenge” – Hope Elementary School in Carlsbad is pleased to announce that Grant Knoche, formerly of Kidz Bop, put on a special performance Monday, January 30th, to close out the “Great Kindness Challenge” week of January 23-27. This Challenge week was to encourage students around the globe to complete 50 simple acts of kindness. Grant shared an inspiring message to the students, then entertained them with a live singing and dancing performance. “Kindness inspires kindness,” said Grant, “and I’m honored to be part of the Great Kindness Challenge with the kids at Hope!” Hope students will also be introduced to a new Compassionate Cafeteria Campaign called, “Better Together.” Based on the idea behind the “Sit With Us” app created by a California teen, “Better Together” was started by a Hope parent, and is a way elementary school kids – who typically don’t carry cell phones – can

Still later the keelboat entered the world of river commerce. It soon became the queen of the river trade. It was a twoway traveler, long and narrow with graceful lines and built to survive many trips. A keelboat could carry as much as 80 tons of freight. Floated downriver it was then cordelled up river. Cordelling consisted simply of strong men walking along the river, pulling the boat with lines. Despite treacherous river currents, snags, shifting sandbars, hostile Indians and river pirates, river navigation began to grow quickly. Then in 1811 Robert Fulton and Robert Livingston built the first steamboat at a cost of $40,000. She was a sidewheeler and she, the New Orleans, launched the golden era of paddlewheelers.
During Mark Twain's day the Mississippi was a busy area of commerce. In fact, if you can imagine this, it was probably even busier than today. Why? Because of what we're riding on today. Steamboats.
In 1814 only 21 steamboats arrived in New Orleans, in 1819 the figure had jumped to 191 . . . and in 1836, a scant 22 years later, there would be 1200 steamboat cargoes unloaded in New Orleans . . . a huge growth. But then what happened?
The steamboats eventually gave way to the railway systems. Inland, the rail lines could go where no steamship dared to go.
There is a passion among river folk and it's a passion that is easy to understand.

The river is constantly in motion, even in the driest of years. The flow equates to power. And raw, naked beauty. Along its banks there is lush vegetation, the river bottomlands represent prime farming country, never mind the occasional inundation from flood conditions . . . it is still land so rich that almost anything you plant there will grow.
This same passion is what drove young Samuel Clemens to become a certified river pilot on April 9, 1895, in St. Louis, at the tender age of 24.
Clemens loved the paddlewheel steamboat. In fact, it was during his years on the river that he chose his pen name, "Mark Twain," a frequent call of the leadsman which would indicate the water was two fathoms, or 12 feet, deep and thus safe for passage. Many people who follow Mark Twain know the story of his name. But there is another, lesser known story. There was once a Captain Isaiah Sellers who signed his letters full of river information and sent them to newspapers signed Mark Twain.
Sellers was an old man who tended to draw on his expeience when he wrote his letters on river conditions. The brash young Sam Clemens chose to parody him. It was a witty parody and it stretched Captain Sellers' memories and mannerisms to absurdity. Folks loved Clemens' parody but apparently Sellers did not find it amusing. As Mark Twain later said, the old man did him the honor of despising him. To later adopt the old man's nom de plume may well have been an act both of piety and penitence.
Much of our common phrases used today comes from the language of the river. Over one hundred and fifty years

ago when steamboats were plying the river their boilers would build up excessive steam pressure from time to time; relieving that pressure was naturally known as "letting off steam," and it has come to describe the human emotion off getting rid of tension.
Many young lads of that era carried the name of Willy, or Wilbur, or William, largely due to their German or English descent. They would use the Ohio River to journey to the hills of West Virginia, Kentucky, and Tennesse. They became known as "hill billys."
"I cotton to you," became a phrase that mean "I like you," because the raw cotton that was the chief cargo on riverboats stuck to your clothes.
Some people carried fiddles with them and would play along the riverbanks and wharves for pennies. If you didn't work, you were accused of "fiddlin' around."
The "outland" was considered to be anything west of the Mississippi River, and early pioneers who traveled there were called "outlanders." Their rowdy behavior and loud clothing were thought by many to be "outlandish."
There is so much about The River . . . so much tradition, so much history, so much adventure. It is a force unto itself. He was reminded of this by a song lyric composed and sung by one of the boat’s entertainers, Bob Sembiante:
“There’s a mystery in these waters, Something simple, something strong. There’s a power, there’s a peace, A planet’s tale, an old man’s song.

The Paper • Page 4 • February 2, 2017 Arrest Made in 2002 Escondido Homicide
On September 10, 2002 at Dee’s Sports Tavern, 426 N. Rose St, Hector Mendieta (DOB 8-15-81) and Bartolo Velador (DOB 9-24-66) were in a physical altercation. During the fight, Mendieta stabbed Velador and fled the scene. Velador later died as a result of his injuries. As Escondido Police Detectives began working the case, they learned that Mendieta fled the country into Mexico. Detectives developed probable cause to believe Mendieta was responsible for the murder, and a warrant was issued for his arrest.
In 2012 this case was re-initiated by the Escondido Police Department Cold Case Homicide Unit. Believing there was still sufficient evidence to charge Mendieta with murder, in 2013 the Cold Case Unit requested the assistance of the US Marshal’s San Diego Fugitive Task Force in an effort to locate and arrest Mendieta. In June of 2016 the US Marshal’s San Diego Fugitive Task Force located Mendieta in Mexico, and Mexican authorities arrested him for the warrant. After a lengthy extradition process, Mendieta was flown to the United States and delivered to officers from the Escondido Police Department. Mendieta, now 35 years old, was later booked into the Vista Detention Facility for First Degree Murder.

The Escondido Police Department Traffic Unit conducted a DUI/Drivers License checkpoint on Saturday, January 28, at 2nd Avenue and Broadway. Checkpoints are placed in locations that have the greatest opportunity for achieving drunk and drugged driving deterrence and provide the greatest safety for officers and the public.
High Visibility Enforcements, which include DUI/Drivers License checkpoints, have been shown to lower DUI deaths and injuries. A major component of these checkpoints are the deterrent effects it has on those who might drive alcohol or drug impaired, bringing about more awareness and encouraging everyone to use sober designated drivers. Following are other results from this event: 1917 vehicles drove through the checkpoint. 671 vehicles were screened in primary. 50 vehicles were sent to secondary screening (drivers who could not produce a driver’s license or who were suspected of being under the influence of alcohol or drugs) 24 total citations were issued during the checkpoint. (6 for suspended license and 11 for unlicensed driver, 6 for no insurance.) 1 DUI arrest. 4 Field Sobriety Tests Educational material was distributed regarding DUI problems.
Drivers caught driving impaired can expect the impact of a DUI arrest to include jail time, fines, fees, DUI classes,

On Friday, January 27, at 2:14 p.m., the City of Carlsbad Police Department was called to the 4600 block of Park Drive. The caller reported that a female was screaming and stated a male tried to attack her. The suspect was described as a unknown race light skinned male adult, late 30’s or early 40’s, wearing a black ski mask and dark clothing.
Officers responded to the scene and located a female victim. The victim stated an unknown race light skinned male adult entered her home through an unlocked front door screen, tied her up, and began to search the residence. The victim was able to escape the residence and ran outside. A neighbor standing outside, heard the screaming, and observed the suspect run away from the residence. The neighbor tackled the suspect and wrestled him to the ground. The suspect was able to escape and was chased, by the neighbor, to the area of Cove Drive and Park Drive.
One of the spokespersons (she didn't want her name used) said the results were a huge success. They could not have been happier.

North County came together ... an estimated 200 veterans were registered, 130 of whom were provided housing; We had 600 volunteers which translates to 3 volunteers for every veteran a most desirable ratio. All too often you have one volunteer for 5 or 6 veterans. This worked out beautifully.

A perimeter was set up in the area and with the assistance of the San Diego Sheriffs K-9 units and Air Support Unit a search was conducted. After an exten-
I can't remember when I was more proud of North San Diego County.
I attended the 1st Annual North County Stand Down Saturday and was very impressed with what had happened.
Letters to the Editor
Take pride, North County! Ya done good! And to the committee of volunteers (mostly veterans but many civilians as well) - I bow down in your general direction. You made a miracle happen and the veterans you served today will long remember your kindness and benevolence. This Stand Down truly represented
Yolanda York, a public relations specialist for Social Security tells of how delighted she was at the Sand Down program when she met with a veteran who was frustrated by a $500 overpayment due Social Security; he also had a $1200 a month veteran’s disability. Yolanda told him he’d be eligible for a $600 additional Social Security benefit in three years time. He was unaware that you can collect both veteran’s benefits and Social Security. He was delighted at the news and Yoland was delighted to help him. The Social Security team helped around 19 separate veterans with Social Security issues. Yolanda simply shines when she’s able to give information to help someone gain all of their Social Security benefits. Stay tuned for more similar information.

sive search of the area officers were unsuccessful in locating the suspect. Detectives responded to the scene and assumed the lead in the investigation.
The investigation into the Home Invasion and Attempted Robbery is ongoing. Serious Injury Accident - Escondido
On January 27, 2017 at about 1:22 AM officers from the Escondido Police Department were dispatched along with the Escondido Fire Department to the area of Centre City Parkway at Country Club Lane regarding a serious injury collision. Officers arrived and located two involved vehicles.
Based on witness statements and physical evidence at the scene it appears a 21 year old male was driving south on Centre City Parkway in a white 2016 Ford Focus. A 30 year old male driver in a white Kia Sorrento was making a left turn from Centre City Parkway to westbound Country Club Lane. The two vehicles collided causing major injuries to two of the three passengers in the Ford Focus. The driver of the Kia did not have any passengers on board and had only a complaint of pain.
One of the female passengers in the Ford Focus suffered traumatic head injury and serious injury to her heart. These injuries are considered life threatening. The second female passenger suffered a punctured lung and a serious spinal injury. There was evidence at the scene that the driver of the Ford Focus had been drinking alcohol. The other driver had
not been drinking and impairment was not a factor. The traffic investigation is ongoing and is being conducted by Officer Kyle Beierly of the Traffic Division. Traffic officers have developed probable cause to arrest Gerardo Morales for felony DUI with injury. Morales is a 21 year old resident of Vista, Ca. He was treated and released from the hospital and later booked into the Vista Detention Center. Morales is being charged with one count of DUI with injury, a felony.

thump upside the head! I haven't seen an ad in your fine publication from Fry's. Also, why does West Country Club Lane through the embattled Country Club area remain at 25mph? I run that trail all of the time and it can easily handle 40mph without the golf carts. Ahhhhhh, Escondido! Best, Randy Hartsock
Editor’s Note: Sorry, I don’t have a clue as to what you’re talking about regarding Fry’s. They don’t advertise with us, Computer Factory does. What am I missing in your letter? The Spanos family rejected 55 years of fan support!
Sadly, the team that hundreds of thousands of loyal San Diego Charger fans have supported for years has now left San Diego. This is the same team that left Los Angeles after its first year in the upstart American Football League in 1961. It is also the team that a few years later, won the 1963 AFL Championship game in Balboa Stadium. I remember it well. I was a young boy when my father: long time real estate broker: James L. Lambert started a family tradition by regularly supporting the Chargers. By the time the team started playing at ‘Jack Murphy Stadium’, many such North County and San Diego families enjoyed seeing ‘the local team’ play during each fall season. By the time I got out of college and started my career in the banking industry, I really enjoyed sitting near my parents as they cheered on the local team. Over time I would go to the Sunday afternoon games with friends and members of my own family. Sadly that is now gone for thousands of us.
For a long time Mr. Spanos and his family were residents in La Jolla. They were blessed with a large home with tremendous views of the La Jolla coastline. It staggers my mind that they would walk away from not only this picturesque and beautiful area but a city that so faithfully supported their team. It was only in the last 5 years or so when rumors of the team leaving did fan support wane. While the voters rejected their tax payer supported move to down town, the logical suggestion to build a new stadium in Mission Valley was rejected by the Spanos family. Certainly, Mission Valley seemed to be the best location for a new stadium. It would have been the most cost effective and certainly the best location for transporting fans to the stadium. AND, the city was willing to give the team 166 acres for a 100 year lease at the cost of only $1 a year. Yet, Mr. Spanos said no and our beloved city lost its 3rd national professional sports franchise (the NBA Rockets & Clippers being the others) in the last 40 years. How sad.

Apples and Oranges
I enjoy The Paper; some of the Chuckles are especially worth keeping.
The front page articles are interesting and educational. The one I just finished is by Friedrich Gomez and titled America's Silent Majority. He's obviously a very good writer. I believe he is correct in noting that most Americans would be surprised to know that the largest ethnic group in the nation is German-American.
I was surprised. Growing up in Michigan, I didn't even visit Frankenmuth, MI till I went back there for a visit one time! But I did spend the summer between my Junior and Senior high school years as a foreign exchange student to Germany. I even have GermanJewish ancestry on my maternal grandfather's side.
The reason I am writing is because as I was reading the article, it was already in my mind to brace myself in case a particular comparison was made between the anti-German feelings during WWI and the antiMuslim feelings today. And then it reared its verboten head on the page right in front of me. Although I wasn't around near the turn of the 20th Century, I doubt the GermanAmericans were going to places of worship that promoted things like Sharia law or jihad or anti-American sentiments.
Although Mr. Gomez did not pen the original comparison - he was quoting author Erik Kirschbaum he would not have included it in his composition if he didn't sympathize with that view. The Germans were persecuted, at other times in our history it was the Irish, then the Chinese and if you recall the Zoot Suit wars of the 40's, at that time it was the Hispanics.
All of those acts came of ignorance and unrealistic fears, often helped along by Progressive leaders like President Wilson. The greatest ignorance occurring today regarding the Muslims is that most Americans do not seem to know that first, they are not strictly a religious faction. They are every bit as much a political and militant organization as they are a religious one.
Second, they have one solitary mission - to convert or annihilate any and all peoples of the world who are not of the Muslim faith. A third thing is that they are making a steady and successful move on our very own country. They do this through the 30-year-old refugee resettlement program. They do it by getting positions in the government. They do it by holding jihadist meetings in their mosques and creating terrorist cells wherever they can.
I personally know a former Marine and Viet Nam Vet who has made it his personal mission to visit mosques and research the goings-on and keep
a steady watch on activities of Muslims in America, especially in San Diego where there is a high level of activity. Make no mistake, they are brilliantly planning to infiltrate and eventually wage war from within.
This is much like the Socialist/ Communist movement. It will be interesting to see which ideologue will be the most successful. But to my point. There really is no comparison, and as soon as the attempt to compare the German-American persecution to the legitimate wariness we have of Muslims in our country popped out from the article, I knew I had to voice my view. So there you have it. If I sound like an alarmist, it's because we had better become alarmed at the truth, which is all I have stated.
Thanks for entertaining us with the unique publication called The Paper. Have a blessed day. Sincerely,
/s/Eileen Fernandez San Diego County, Ca.

Historically Speaking by Tom Morrow
The Real Tragedies of the USS Indianapolis
Among the many tragic stories of World War II, the sinking of the USS Indianapolis resulted in a miscarriage of justice that sent its skipper to his doom. Capt. Charles B. McVay III was the commanding officer of the heavy cruisier USS Indianapolis (CA-35) when it was lost in July 1945, after being torpedoed by a Japanese submarine, I-58.
The Indianapolis departed Tinian after delivering the two atomic weapons to the U.S. Army Air Corps destined for Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The ship’s mission was top secret and had no escort destroyers protecting it. Because of the secrecy, none of the surrounding fleet knew of the ship’s mission or whereabouts even after delivering its cargo. As the ship was going down, SOS calls for help went unheeded because ships in the area thought the signals might be a Japanese trap trying to lure U.S. ships. The submarine attack on the Indianapolis resulted in a massive loss of life. More than 300 of the ship’s 1,100-man crew were lost, primarily to sharks as well as wounds sustained in the torpedo attack. It took five days before a Navy scout plane finally spotted the survivors.
While the surviving crew was lauded as heroes, the Navy, not wanting to admit to the tragic mistake of not protecting one of its capital ships, decided someone had to take the blame. Of all the captains in the history of the United States Navy, McVay is the only one court-martialed for losing a ship sunk by an act of war. The fact he was on a top-secret mission maintaining radio silence fell on deaf ears in Washington. Even JapaneseCommander MochitsuraHashimotoI, who sunk the Indianapolis, testified in McVay’s behalf. He told the court there was no way the American skipper could have avoided the attack. The surviving Indianapolis crewmembers knew their captain was being sacrificed. Nonetheless, for years the captain was deluged with hate mail and harassing phone calls from family members of those lost at sea. McVay’s record up until the sinking was superb. He guided the Indianapolis through the invasion of Iwo Jima, then the bombardment of
Okinawa in the spring of 1945. For years the Navy claimed the Indianapolis’ SOS messages were never received because the ship was operating under a policy of radio silence. However, declassified records now show that three SOS messages were received separately, but none were acted upon because one the officers thought it was a Japanese ruse, another had given orders not to be disturbed, and a third was drunk.
Admiral Chester Nimitz, commander of the Pacific Fleet, issued McVay a letter of reprimand for not using the “zig-zag” maneuver. However, in Washington, D.C., Chief of Naval Operations Admiral Ernest King overturned Nimitz’s decision and recommended a court-martial.
In his book Abandon Ship, author Richard F. Newcomb suggests one possible motive for Admiral King's ordering McVay's court-martial. According to Captain McVay's father, Admiral Charles B McVay Jr: "'King never forgot a grudge," he replied in anger. King had been a junior officer under the old man's command when King and other junior officers sneaked some women aboard a ship. Admiral McVay had letter of reprimand placed in King's record. "Now," he raged to his son, "King's used you to get back at me.'"
American submarine experts testified that "zigzagging" was a technique of negligible value in eluding enemy submarines. Sub Commander Hashimoto also testified in agreement.Despite that testimony, the official ruling was that visibility was good, and the court held McVay responsible for failing to zigzag.
On Nov. 6, 1968, Captain McVay committed suicide by shooting himself at his Litchfield, Conn., home. USS Indianapolis survivors organized, and many spent years attempting to clear their skipper's name. Ironically, more than 50 years after the incident, a 12-year-old Pensacola, Fla., student, Hunter Scott, was instrumental in raising awareness of the miscarriage of justice carried out at the captain's court-martial. As part of a school project for the National History Day program, the young man interviewed nearly 150 survivors of the Indianapolis sinking and reviewed 800 documents. His testimony before Congress brought national attention to the McVay case. In October 2000, the United States Congress passed a resolution that McVay's record should reflect that "he is exonerated for the loss of the USS Indianapolis." President Clinton also signed the resolution. Commander Hashimoto died Oct. 25, five days before McVay’s exoneration. In July 2001, Secretary of the Navy Gordon R. England ordered McVay's official Navy record purged of all

An elderly woman walked into the local country church. The friendly usher greeted her at the door and helped her up the flight of steps.
"Where would you like to sit?" he asked politely. "The front row, please," she answered.

"You really don't want to do that," the usher said. "The pastor is really boring." "Do you happen to know who I am?" the woman inquired. "No," he said.
"I'm the pastor's mother," she replied indignantly. "Do you know who I am?" he asked. "No," she said. "Good," he answered. Show and Tell
A kindergarten teacher gave her class a "show and tell" assignment. Each student was instructed to bring in an object that represented their religion to share with the class.
The first student got up in front of the class and said, "My name is Benjamin and I am Jewish and this is a Star of David." The second student got up in front of the class and said, "My name is Mary. I'm a Catholic and this is a Rosary."
The third student got in up front of the class and said, "My name is Tommy. I am Methodist, and this is a casserole." The Best Way To Pray
A priest, a minister and a guru sat discussing the best positions for prayer, while a telephone repairman worked nearby. "Kneeling is definitely the best way to pray," the priest said.
"No," said the minister. "I get the best results standing with my hands outstretched to Heaven."
"You're both wrong," the guru said. "The most effective prayer position is lying down on the floor." The repairman could contain himself no longer. "Hey, fellas," he interrupted. "The best prayin' I ever did was when I was hangin' upside down from a telephone pole." The Twenty and the One

History Museum Honors Pearl Harbor Hero A permanent exhibition at the Valley Center History Museum honoring local veterans has been expanded to recognize the late A. Kenneth Hartle who earned fame as a hero at Pearl Harbor during World War II.
A Valley Center resident for 55 years, he died January 24 at age 103. He had been the Commemorative Flag Presented to Navy's oldest Vietnam Veterans surviving s a l vage diver. Hartle was a deep sea master diver who repeatedly risked death, according to documentation at the Valley Center Historical Society. Certified to dive underwater at 100 feet, he often went far beyond that depth to tow away unexploded torpedoes, salvage downed ships and planes sunk by the Japanese, and retrieve bodies. Hartle joins other Valley Center veterans in an exhibit titled "Honoring pictured Matt Foster, Wanda Prosser, Our Local Heroes". Included are tributes to Capt.

The Prologue and Epilogue
February never seemed like a very exciting month. It doesn’t have New Year’s Eve, Ides of March, April showers, May flowers, or June weddings. Yet, it does have two of America’s most famous birthdays, George Washington’s and Abraham Lincoln’s. Fortunately, neither of these men sought deification, i.e. worship as gods such as the Caesars of Rome. In fact, they avoided any attempt to make themselves more than mere men. What I like about them is that they saw themselves as servants of the people. Neither died in the heroics of a battle – Washington with a deadly cold(Quinsy disease) and Lincoln by assassination. We Americans paid them due homage in the ritual of death and places of burial, but no
We all could pay heed to those who serve us as President, even though much at the moment seems justified in our faultfinding, often due to the misrepresentation of the news. We have only to look at what has benefitted us with the purchase of Alaska, the Louisiana Purchase, the National Parks, Social Security, and Medicare, just to name a few. It does seem to me that many cannot see beyond their myopia, prejudices, and narrow-mindedness. History has proven that what so many condemned as foolish, and even unAmerican, has become our best teacher.
The Bible gives us counsel and wisdom in the words of St. Paul, who, of anyone, had the right to condemn the leadership and government of his day, “First of all, I urge that entreaties and prayers, petitions and thanksgivings, be made on behalf of all men, for kings (presidents) and all who are in authority, so that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness and dignity”.1 Tim. 2:1,2.

Yelp and the small business
Yelp is a “Crowd sourced Internet business review site.” Yelp offers local business search, rating, and reviews. It also has a food delivery and reservations service. Yelp sounds like a great idea. It is a forum for ordinary people to share their experiences with local businesses (good or bad). Ideally it should provide an incentive for businesses to treat their customers well. Positive revues would reward good business and negative reviews would penalize poor performers. It would seem to be a perfect system to promote good businesses and weed out the stinkers. To a certain extent this is true but there is an element that make most small businesses despise Yelp. It’s the human factor.

If each customer was forced to give a review (on a scale of one to five) after each service experience, this system would work perfectly; every business would be fairly evaluated and rated against others. That of course is not the way Yelp works. Yelping is voluntary so very few folks actually take the time and trouble to review a business. When they do there is often a strong emotional incentive to do so.
In the case of The Computer Factory, we had only six reviews going back to 2010. Three were “five star,” three were “one star.” That gives us a very mediocre “three star” rating. During that time period we had over 12,000 transactions (sales orders and work orders). Those six reviews indicate that one out of every 4000 customers really love us and one out of every 4000 really hate us. Someone browsing Yelp might see that “three star” rating and conclude that we are a very mediocre place to take their PC. Conversely Joe Baggadonuts’ Computer Service might have a “five stare” rating. He lives in his car and fixes PCs when he’s sober. He got his mother, his X-wife and his parole officer to write positive reviews so he’s got a “five star” rating and doesn’t even own a computer.
Joe Baggadonuts may be an extreme example but goofy stuff often affects the Yelp ratings of small businesses. Of the three

individuals who gave us negative reviews, Tia.S was someone that came in with a non-computer problem and obviously hates fat old men. George L was someone who bought a PC from us years ago. He woke up one morning six years later and decided that we must be compulsive gamblers who build PCs with used parts. Then there was Julie P. When she took over her daddy’s business she decided that her IT service tech was ripping them off and called us to complain. We told her that her IT service had nothing to do with us but we knew her IT service tech to be honest and competent. She didn’t like that at all so she dropped the “Yelp bomb” on us. Of those three negative reviews, none really had anything to do with our

products and services. They were all about me. If only three out of every 12,000 folks don’t like me, I’ll take it. That puts me way ahead of Hillary, Donald and Barack.
Yelp can be useful in helping to screen product and service providers when you have no other information, but be careful. The Yelp ratings of many small businesses can be poisoned by individuals and competitors who have an agenda that really has nothing to do with the business itself. Most business owners can relate horror stories about customers attempting to extort discounts or special treatment with the “Yelp bomb” threat.

Now with the transition to a one base medical billing system, there are several dental services that fall into the medical coding system, and are billed using those medical codes. Interestingly enough, medical insurance in the past haven't covered decay in teeth even though it's actually a bacterial decay of the teeth. Dental Insurance was established to cover this malady and many others Yet, an infection of the supporting structures such as the gums (periodontal disease) is now covered in most cases
kering reverse mortgages to large reverse mortgage lenders. That’s where I am today. I place reverse mortgages with the lender best suited for each borrower’s circumstances. Each lender has their own “overlays”-additional requirements on top of FHA’s requirements. I work with the largest lenders in today’s reverse mortgage field: AAG, Finance America Reverse, Retirement Funding Solutions.
Let me tell you a little about me. I have lived in Escondido since 1983 when my parents moved here from Indiana. I was a sophomore in high school when we came to California. Who does that to their teenager? That was a challenging time in my young life, but it made me who I am today … I have one daughter, of whom I am quite proud. She lives in Pasadena with her husband and their three children. Being a grandma is AWESOME! I’m sure I’m not telling many of you anything new.
I want you to know everything you want to know about the reverse mortgage program. I want you to understand how it can be such a useful financial tool for homeowners 62 and older. If you can’t take advantage of it for yourself right now, perhaps your parents or grandparents would appreciate knowing the many ways in which this loan program can create a mindset of financial freedom. Financial stress shouldn’t be something we deal with in our retirement, if there is any way to avoid it. Please call me to schedule a time we can meet for lunch or coffee! I’d love to meet you!
under medical insurance. Dental Insurance is very limited by their maximum caps ($1500, $2500, etc.) a patient can use each year, whereas medical coverage is just the opposite requiring a minimum deduction paid ($500, $1500, $3000, etc.) above which they will pay a portion (80%, 50%, etc.) without a yearly cap and with lifetime cap at several million dollars. Required medical coding is now bringing our facility under the more realistic classifications of medical treatment and allows us to offer our patients treatment options than were offered and/or limited under their dental insurances. Examples include medical treatments for periodontal scalings, offered dentally once every 3 years, rather than being offered on a ongoing basis until the dis-
ease becomes managable and/or cured. Another is loss of bone structure due to infection requiring removal of teeth and needing replacement by implants. Your dental insurance may cover one (maybe two) replacements a year maximum whereas your medical insurance will allow total treatment of that area involved (including a whole arch) without a limitation on the number of implants. A much better treatment coverage for a fraction of the cost. In the end this system will be benefit everyone. Less chances for patient error and better coverage as well.
