Volume 46 - No. 06
By Frederick Gomez
The year Disneyland first opened, in 1955, might seem like one – maybe two – lifetimes away for many of us. The year 1955 was a year of historical landmarks. Dr. Jonas Salk’s polio vaccine is given in public schools for the very first time; consequently, countless humans are spared the rampant horror and terror that was the scourge of Polio! The microwave oven was first invented. And Israel startles the world of archeology (and religion) by discovering more Dead Sea Scrolls. On the political front, Dwight D. Eisenhower is our 34th U.S. President, and America begins its involvement in Vietnam. On a cultural level, Ray Kroc creates the world’s first McDonald’s fastfood chain that would eventually spread around the world! In sports, the Dodgers (who are still in Brooklyn) win the World Series of baseball! The 1955 cost of living is, in retrospect, a most incredulous memory in our rearview mirror: average cost of a new home is $10,950 and monthly rent a paltry $87. Amazingly, a

new car would cost $1,900 and the price of gas would be 23-cents a gallon! In many respects, 1955 defined who we were as Americans; our country was a fascinating study of emerging cultural values that shaped and reflected our uniquely-American way of life back then: “Gunsmoke” debuts on television and quickly becomes our top television show; the hit song, “The Ballad of Davy Crockett,” becomes a powerful American identity, so much so, that all three versions of this same song make the Billboard Magazine charts in 1955. Marilyn Monroe is well-established as an American household name, and San Diego’s emerging radio icon (the erstwhile Canadian farm boy), 28-year-old ‘Lovable Doug Best,’ is beginning a legacy only five years into the radio airwaves, in 1955. His eventual penchant for playing American swing music and the Big Band sounds is, quintessential America. Douglas G. Best would later leave indelible cultural and political footprints in San Diego’s North County region by becoming a veteran city Councilman, then Escondido’s 19th city Mayor (1978-80), person-
ifying the American Dream that even a small, immigrant farm boy can emerge as a true, bona fide Horatio Alger story.
1955 was also the year that a cultural icon, of another sort, would suddenly appear on our American landscape that would forever alter our daily lives and even our perceptions of recreational fun and free-spirited adventure, as never before: On Sunday, July 17, 1955, Disneyland in Anaheim, California, made its world-debut before the biggest, and most complicated, live telecast in history, drawing in an unbelievable 90million television viewers in a country with a total population of 165-million inhabitants! This is a staggering proportion of humanity glued to their television sets, enjoying live television coverage of a radical theme park that would transform and elevate the crude carnival amusement park, into a vast dreamland of sweeping beauty, creative wonderlands, and breathtaking imagination! The world was getting its first glimpse of Disneyland, USA! It was history-in-the-making.

California was still in the forefront of world motion pictures and the element of Hollywood magic was brought into view, like ‘eye candy,’ for television viewers to jump-for-joy in recognizing a glittering array of celebrities, all at Disneyland’s dedication: actor Ronald Reagan (our future U.S President), Jerry Lewis, TV celebrities Art Linkletter, Bob Cummings, Danny Thomas, singer Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis, Jr., and entertainers Eddie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds. There were countless others, including children’s favorite, Fess Parker, as Davy Crockett! But amidst all of this hoopla and celebration, and national revelry, disaster would strike not once, not twice, but too many times, mostly behind the cameras and behindthe-scenes of the biggest television audience in history! It is clearly a matter of public record that Disneyland Park was never supposed to have that fateful day on Sunday, July 17, 1955. That specific day was by invitation-only. It was officially
The Paper • Page 2 • February 11, 2016
‘Disney Secrets’ Cont. from Page 1
referred to as “Dedication Day,” or “International Press Preview” and not “Opening Day” (for the general public). Only 6,000 mailers were sent out with tickets clearly signifying ‘By-Invitation-Only.’ The invited guests comprised the international media, as well as all the Disney studio employees, the Disneyland construction workers, and all the officials of company sponsors of the park. Included were the respective family members of all invited guests. From this guest list, Disneyland calculated, perhaps, 13,000 total people at their “International Press Preview” opening. Unfortunately, the general public had other plans! Disneyland’s Dedication Day for invited-guests-only proved to be a nightmare which years later would be referred to as “Black Sunday” by Disneyland personnel! Unexpected partycrashers, in the form of the general public showed up! The expected crowd of perhaps 13,000 invitees, was now a staggering 28,000-plus people clamoring to gain entry! The actual turnstilecount from the official park records registered at 28,154 but, technically, far more had gained entry through fence-hopping, etc. The more frantic efforts to get into the park were illustrated when people started scaling over the Disneyland Park fence by using ladders! On-the-spot entrepreneurs with ladders were charging $5 a head for those climbing, illegally, into the park, all wanting to see their favorite television
Give Us This Day Our Daily Chuckle This week, a compendium of wit, wisdom and neat stuff you can tell at parties. Enjoy! One afternoon . . .
Going into Taco Bell the young cashier said it will be $5.37 for the order I had just placed. I dug into my pocket and pulled out some lint and two dimes and something that used to be a peppermint.
Having already handed the kid a five-spot, I started to head back out to the truck to grab some change when the kid with the Elmo hairdo said the hardest thing anyone has ever said to me. He said, "It's OK. I'll just give you the senior citizen discount." I turned to see who he was talking to and then heard the sound of change hitting the
celebrities, movie-stars, and wanting to join in on the greatest party this side of the universe! The “Happiest Place on Earth” created the unhappiest of circumstances: broken rides, food shortages and a lack of water in 100plus-degree weather! To the disappointment of countless children, some of the park attractions were not ready for operation. “The Rocket to the Moon,” “Casey Jr. Circus Train” and “Dumbo the Flying Elephant” rides were still closed down.
The unusual heat wave was even unpredicted. Official weather forecast-records for July 17, 1955, were jointly listed as 80-degrees and 81-degrees, respectively, from two independent weather stations, at the time. The unexpected heat wave would, in actuality, soar to 101-degrees Fahrenheit. Worse, the heat wave stayed on for a brutal 15-day duration, culminating in 110-degrees Fahrenheit! The unusually-hot weather would complicate preopening day for the international media as well as for the new park they had converged to cover that day. As reported by Los Angeles Times staff reporter, E. Scott Reckard, a plumber’s strike rendered few drinking fountains operational. Bob Thomas, an Associated Press Hollywood reporter, chronicled that the plumber’s strike had forced Walt Disney to choose between finishing the public restrooms or the public water fountains. Walt chose the restrooms. As it was, several water fountains were without water! However, plenty of unwelcomed water was washing over the deck of the Mark
counter in front of me. "Only $4.68" he said cheerfully. I stood there stupefied. I am not even 60 yet? A mere child! Senior citizen? I took my burrito and walked out to the truck wondering what was wrong with Elmo. Was he blind? As I sat in the truck, my blood began to boil. Old? Me? I'll show him, I thought.
I opened the door and headed back inside. I strode to the counter, and there he was waiting with a smile.
Before I could say a word, he held up something and jingled it in front of me, like I could be that easily distracted! What am I now? A toddler? "Dude! Can't get too far without your car keys, eh?"
I stared with utter disdain at the keys. I began to rationalize in my mind!
"Leaving keys behind hardly makes a man elderly! It could happen to anyone!"
I turned and headed back to the truck. I slipped the key into the ignition, but it wouldn't turn. What now? I checked my keys and tried another. Still nothing.
Twain Steamboat, which had huge, over-capacity-crowds onboard causing the Mark Twain river boat to begin listing, from side to side! When the crowds moved from one side of the boat to the other side to view the sights, the Mark Twain began its listing and water came over the deck! (A few days later, with over 500 guests on board, the Mark Twain river boat became stuck in the mud! It was, then, that Walt Disney established a capacity of 300 passengers on board to prevent this from happening again in the future!) Back on Main Street, the freshly-poured asphalt (which was just poured the previous day), proved fine and dandy for normal foot traffic, and even for the heaviest of traffic, such as supporting the fully-loaded (with people) Horse-Drawn Streetcars that traveled up-and-down Main Street U.S.A. all day-long. Even Disneyland’s stable of Draft horses, each weighing an excess of 2,000 pounds each, had no problems on the asphalt. However, as any physicist on planet Earth will gladly tell you, a 100-pound woman in high-heeled shoes (and yes, there were several there in 1955), exert more crushing pressure-per-square-inch when walking, than a 6,000-pound elephant whose weight is more evenly distributed via four huge legs! (One can easily confirm this on the global scientific internet.) Well, as you may have already surmised, adding to the variety of mishaps at Disneyland’s 1955 Pre-Opening Dedication Ceremonies, were the women wearing high-heeled shoes who became stuck in some regions of the newly-laid asphalt! Not all.
That's when I noticed the purple beads hanging from my rear view mirror. I had no purple beads hanging from my rear view mirror. Then, a few other objects came into focus: The car seat in the back seat. Happy Meal toys spread all over the floorboard. A partially eaten donut on the dashboard. Faster than you can say ginkgo biloba, I flew out of the alien vehicle.
Moments later I was speeding out of the parking lot, relieved to finally be leaving this nightmarish stop in my life. That is when I felt it, deep in the bowels of my stomach: hunger! My stomach growled and churned, and I reached to grab my burrito, only it was nowhere to be found. I swung the truck around, gathered my courage, and strode back into the restaurant one final time. There Elmo stood, draped in youth and black nail polish. All I could think was, "What is the world coming to?" All I could say was, "Did I leave my food and drink in here"? At this point I was ready to ask a Boy Scout to help me back to my vehicle, and then go straight home and apply for Social Security benefits.
But, enough! And as if all this were not enough, a gas leak suddenly erupted in Fantasyland causing a temporary shutdown in parts of Adventureland and Frontierland! Not prepared for the burgeoning crowds, snack carts and restaurants also ran out of food! Walt Disney, who was focused on rushing from site-to-site locations for the 22-camera ABC Special telecast, was unaware of the magnitude of problems. Yes, he knew of some, but when the full-brunt of facts became known the following day, Walt Disney blew his stack. “He was outraged,” reported Harrison Price, the consultant who found the Anaheim site for Walt. “He raised hell. But within a month, he worked out the bugs.”
In retrospect, all this disaster could have easily been prevented. Advisors had strongly urged Walt Disney to postpone the July 17 Pre-Opening and to lengthen the one-year-construction period because they had already detected pre-opening snafus, such as the sand beneath the Rivers of America attraction, which sucked up the water, requiring workers to quickly line the attraction with clay. Also, strikes had disrupted schedules. Even Frontierland had to be rebuilt over and over, just to get the right size-ratio-scale. But, Walt insisted on keeping the date for the Dedication Ceremonies, as promised to the television and newspaper media.

Elmo had no clue. I walked back out to the truck, and suddenly a young lad came up and tugged on my jeans to get my attention. He was holding up a drink and a bag. His mother explained, "I think you left this in my truck by mistake." I took the food and drink from the little boy and sheepishly apologized. She offered these kind words: "It's OK. My grandfather does stuff like this all the time."
All of this is to explain how I got a ticket doing 85 in a 40 mph zone. Yessss, I was racing some punk kid in a Toyota Prius. And no, I told the officer, I'm not too old to be driving this fast.
As I walked in the front door, my wife met me halfway down the hall. I handed her a bag of cold food and a $300 speeding ticket. I promptly sat in my rocking chair and covered up my legs with a blankey. The good news was that I had successfully found my way home. ••••• Huge Deficits May Hamper America's Ability to Wage Pointless Wars, Pentagon Fears

The official public-opening was the following day, Monday, July 18, 1955. It also would prove to be a day of mishaps, reminiscent of the Keystone Cops, featured on Disneyland’s Main Street! The park was slated to open to the general public on Monday morning at 10 a.m. At 2 a.m. prior to that, people were already amassing outside the park gates. Eventually, lines formed four abreast, and one-mile-long, and stood outside the 10 turnstile gates (all captured by Los Angeles Times photographers)! Out on the roads, incoming traffic caused a colossal seven-mile traffic jam on the Santa Ana Freeway, all headed to Disneyland Park! The unprecedented traffic jam (for its time) resembled more a parking lot than a freeway, causing many car occupants to take periodic toilet breaks on the sides of the freeway and, eventually, even in the Disneyland parking lot! Associated Press reporter, Bob Thomas, who chronicled the opening in biographies of the Disneys said, when he informed Walt’s brother, Roy Disney, of people relieving themselves in the Disneyland parking lot, Roy “Just grinned and said, ‘God bless ‘em. Just let ‘em.’” Officially, the first public person to buy a Disneyland ticket, was David MacPherson, on Monday, July 18, 1955. Technically, it was the second ticket sold. The first ticket (marked No. 000001) was actually purchased by Walt’s brother, Roy Disney, who arranged to pre-purchase it as a souvenir!
Mishaps continued, in intervals, especially during the first few weeks of operation. According to writer-historian, Steven Watts, the stagecoach ride in Frontierland was discontinued when it was found to be dangerously top-heavy and prone to flipping over (“The Magic Kingdom: Walt Disney and the American

Despite its shaky beginnings, Disneyland took only seven weeks to amass over one million visitors, eclipsing the Grand Canyon and Yellowstone National Park in popularity! In the ensuing years, just about every luminary, VIP, and member of royalty have trafficked through Disneyland. And just about every adult, today, can trace their youth, and rite-of-passage, to Disneyland. It is an indelible part of our growing-upyears. Its rich legacy even touched an international nerve in 1959 when Russian Premiere, Nikita Khrushchev, exploded in the press, “And I say, I would very much like to go and see Disneyland! But then, ‘We cannot guarantee your security,’ they say! Then what must I do? Commit suicide? What is it? Is there an epidemic of cholera there or something? Or have gangsters taken hold of the place that can destroy me?! Why not?! What is it?! Do you have rocket-launching pads there?! I do not know?!”
Looking back at Disneyland’s more recent history, I found that some pretty interesting people worked there before they became world-famous. Such as comedian, Steve Martin, who worked at Disneyland from 1955-1958 selling guidebooks, and on his free time he learned magic at the Disneyland Main Street Magic Shop! He became so good at it that in 1960 he worked as a magic-demonstrator at the Magic Shop in Fantasyland! There were many others, such as actress, Michelle Pheiffer, who played Alice in “Alice in Wonderland” in the Disneyland Main Street Parade, in the early 1970s. My dad used to tell me that Richard Carpenter, of the famous brotherand-sister music duo, “The Carpenters” (with Karen Carpenter) worked at Disneyland, so I checked, and yup, Pop was right! Turns out that Richard Carpenter worked as a piano player on Main Street! Wow, I thought. Who else? Well, actor Kevin Costner was a tour guide on

the Disneyland Jungle Cruise. Actress Teri Garr worked as a dancer in the various Main Street parades! Allegedly, Robin Williams also worked Disneyland as a tour guide aboard the Jungle Cruise attraction. Knowing Robin Williams, he probably adlibbed some pretty funny lines while his cruise boat was being attacked by all those alligators and hippos! Or delivering funny quips when his passengers were disembarking his Jungle Cruise boat, like: “I’d like to thank the California work-release program for allowing me to spend time with you and your children.” I can only imagine. Also turns out that John McEuen, of the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, worked Disneyland during the same time as Steve Martin (1950s), when McEuen was a musician at the theme park, and that he even taught Steve Martin how to play the banjo more proficiently. As you may know, today, Steve Martin is one of the most accomplished banjo players around and recently toured with the Steep Canyon Rangers! So much hidden history there, at Disneyland! But I never expected my research to turn up Richard Nixon’s White House Press Secretary, Ron Ziegler! Oh, come on – you’re kidding, right? Nope. It’s true! Urbane and sophisticated Press Secretary to the U.S. President, Ron Ziegler, worked as a skipper on the Jungle Cruise ride at Disneyland! Maybe Ziegler cut his diplomatic teeth on learning how to negotiate with all those hostile cannibals that threatened to eat his Jungle Cruise boatload of passengers!
Aside from all those celebrities who once worked at Disneyland, there are deep secrets of another sort that have remained lessknown, to this very day! For example, Mr. Rich Langhorse, VP, Facilities and Operations Services, for Disneyland Resorts, confirms that the King Arthur Carrousel in Fantasyland has some pretty nifty secrets, unknown to the casual observer.

For instance, of the 72 white carrousel horses, only one horse has a painted gold tooth, which identifies it as being the favorite of Lillian’s, Walt Disney’s wife! Also, only one horse in the carrousel has a mule’s head! Might be worth finding – legend says it brings good luck to the rider!
CLUB 33. Even though this unique place inside Disneyland is no longer an exclusive secret, most people still wish to learn more about it so, in the name of democracy, we will discuss its lesser-known-beginnings and how a non-member can actually gain ‘access’ to see its interior, which is still, largely, forbidden to video cameras! For those readers who are not familiar with Disneyland’s Club 33, it is the only place within the park (not including the hotels) that serves alcohol, and is open to club members only. According to Disneyland’s Tony Baxter, Sr. VP, of Walt Disney Imagineering, this Club 33 has a long waiting list to become a member, “A lot of people know about Club 33 and a lot of people want to belong, but it’s very difficult to get in, so you have to have a lot of endurance in terms of waiting to become a member.” According to Cathi Killian, VP of Communications at Disneyland, the Platinum Club 33 members pay a one-time initiation fee of $30,000 and over $12,000 in annual dues, thereafter. Nevertheless, there is a 10-year-waiting list to join? The origin of Club 33 began at the 1964 New York World’s Fair. Walt Disney wanted to provide a special, private place for all of the Fair’s big corporate leaders so he created this plush VIP lounge. It morphed into Club 33 in Disneyland in 1967. Unfortunately, Walt Disney died before Club 33 debuted. Club 33 is located in New Orleans Square, above the “Pirates of the Caribbean” attraction. You can view a very rare video-tour of Club 33 in Disney Park’s “Hidden Secrets of Disney Revealed,”

The Paper • Page 4 • February 11, 2016 Fatal Collision - Escondido
On Saturday, February 6, at about 8:50 pm, officers from the Escondido Police Department were dispatched to the area of San Pasqual Valley Road and Oakhill Drive regarding an injured person in the roadway. Officers arrived at 8:52 PM and determined a vehicle versus pedestrian collision had occurred. The 18 year old male pedestrian sustained major injuries to the head. Officers attempted lifesaving measures however the subject died at the scene.
Based on the driver’s statements and evidence at the scene it appears a gold 2008 Toyota Corolla was being driven by 86 year old Ruth Waldsmith, an Escondido resident. Waldsmith was traveling north on San Pasqual Valley Road south of Oakhill Drive when she collided with the pedestrian. Waldsmith was not injured and remained at the scene. The name of the pedestrian is not being released until next of kin are notified. Alcohol does not appear to be a factor in this collision.
The cause of this collision is still under investigation. The investigation is ongoing and is being conducted by Officer Tyler Songer of the Traffic Division. Anyone with information on this case is encouraged to call Officer Songer at (760) 839-4454 To report any suspicious activities in your neighborhood, you may
contact the Police Department directly, or you may make an unidentified call on the Anonymous Tip Line at 760-743TIPS (8477) or via the web site at police.escondido.org.

On Sunday, February 7th at 12:26 p.m., the City of Carlsbad Police Department received a call about a man who approached a citizen and stated that someone was following him in the 1700 block of Nerine Way. While officers responded, citizens reported that the man went into a nearby residence in the 6400 block of Lilium Way. Citizens reported a fight as the resident attempted to keep the man out of his home.
Officers arrived and located the family who had locked themselves behind their master bedroom door. Family members told officers that the suspect took a butcher knife from their home and threatened them with the weapon. A resident also related that the suspect had something in his hand, possibly a firearm. The suspect was believed to be in another bedroom, down the hall from the family. Officers positioned themselves between the suspect and the family, as other officers escorted the family to

When springtime rolls around, we’ll recontact June and maybe meet up with her at Palomar Airport. She goes to all the airports in the area whenever the Air Show comes into Southern California. Hoping she gets the chance to ride a B-17. If and when that happens she can advertise herself as “June, the Cleaning Lady, the ONLY Cleaning Lady to have flown in a B-17!”

June Weaver is the gal behind June, The Cleaning Lady, who has been advertising with The Paper for about a hundred years. She loves The Paper, most of the calls she gets from new clients comes from her ads in The Paper (news we always love to hear!). Chatting with her last week we learned that she is a “war bird freak.” Regular readers of The Paper will know that we are big supporters of the Hollings Foundation, which brings the “war birds” to Palomar and Ramona Airport every spring.
June is particularly fond of the B-17. When I told her Evelyn and I had flown in a B-17 from the Ramona Airport up to Long Beach and then rented a car to return home, she marveled at the adventure. I have a hunch if she were ever given a chance to ride on a B17 she’d be on Cloud

For the most part I’ve found county and state employees to be competent, caring, and efficient. But the long wait times and/or long lines have not gone away. Frustrating.
Occasionally, with an organization as large as the county or state you get a doofus to take care of you. That, however, is the exception. Most of those
Officers established communications with the suspect and he was taken into custody after he came out of the bedroom. Officers found a butcher knife in the room the suspect occupied. While at the Carlsbad Police Department, the arrested subject attempted to get out of a police car and resisted officers as they attempted to prevent his escape. The 30 year old suspect, Alejandro Gutierrez of National City, Calif., was booked into the Vista Detention Facility for assault with a deadly weapon, burglary, brandishing a weapon, resisting a peace officer, and attempted escape.
Huge Torrey Pine Smashes Escondido Cottage
A tree once declared to be the second tallest Torrey pine in the state crashed to the ground during last Sunday’s storm, flattening a small historic cottage in the 500 block of E. 4th Ave. in Escondido.

Government seems to have its own language, written in a manner meant to confuse rather then educate the consumer. I’m a halfway intelligent guy but I found myself shaking my head more than once wondering what it was I just read and what was I supposed to do. No wonder there are trained professionals in the private sector who understand this world and can guide you through it. I’m at a point now where most of the work is done for my family member and I actually am beginning to understand the process.
My hat is off to those county and state employees who do such a grand job . . . and my thanks to them for being patient with a ‘civilian.’ I should mention that Supervisor Dave Robers and Jayme Chick, Chief of Staff for Assemblywoman Marie Waldron draw particularly loud applause from this corner for helping to expedite matters. Our legislators DO know how to get things done . . . and quickly! Don’t ever be bashful about calling on them for help. That’s what they are there for.

Most mornings I can be found taking breakfast at The French Bakery in Vista. And of course once a week The Paper graces my table along with my daily copy of USA Today. This morning I had the great pleasure to read Frederick Gomez’s excellent article on Area 51. Not only was Mr. Gomez’s article superbly written but it was filled with exquisite details about Groom Lake that I know must have fascinated your readers as much as I. And the inclusion of the quote from Poe’s Dreamland was just perfect. “I have been a traveler, traveling through it but I did dare openly view it.” I reported to Fighter Squadron

Case in point. Recently, Dan had a client family that had been paying $900 per month in group insurance. The head of the family lost his job and they were scrambling to get health insurance. Based on the household income, including that of his wife, Covered California provided health coverage; their cost was $9 a month! Covered California subsidized the premium. Dan Anaya knew where to go to get that coverage.
He’s done that any number of times for me and my family and for his many clients. (Dan is one of those guys who constantly talks about retiring but knows full well he’d be miserable if he ever did . . . so he stays active. But he continues to groom his staff, headed by daughter Corina Guillen.) Whether the public or private sector, it’s important to find those talented people where the “chemistry” is right and you know you can count on them.

A blonde lady motorist was about two hours from San Diego when she was flagged down by a man whose truck had broken down. The man walked up to the car and asked, "Are you going to San Diego?" "Sure," answered the blonde, "do you need a lift?"
"Not for me. I'll be spending the next three hours fixing my truck. My problem is I've got two chimpanzees in the back which have to be taken to the San Diego Zoo. They're a bit stressed already so I don't want to keep them on the road all day. Could you possibly take them to the zoo for me? I'll give you $100 for your trouble." "I'd be happy to," said the
blonde. So the two chimpanzees were ushered into the back seat of the blonde's car and carefully strapped into their seat belts, and off they went.
Five hours later, the truck driver was driving through the heart of San Diego when suddenly he was horrified! There was the blonde walking down the street and holding hands with the two chimps, much to the amusement of a big crowd. With a screech of brakes he pulled off the road and ran over to the blonde. “What the hell are you doing here?" he demanded, "I gave you $100 to take these chimpanzees to the zoo."
"Yes, I know you did," said the blonde, "but we had money left over so now we're going to Sea World." ••••• “It's useless to hold people to what they say when they're in love, drunk or running for office.” ••••• Where there's a will . . .

BREAKING RULES. One thing you always want to do at Disneyland is to obey the rules. Pretty obvious, right? Well, not necessarily. For example, at one of Disneyland’s biggest attraction, called “The Indiana Jones Adventure,” there is a concrete structure of a well that you will pass while in line. It looks like some sort of construction work in progress, and you will see a long vertical bamboo pole at this construction site. Anyway, there is a sign next to the bamboo pole that clearly reads: “Danger! Do Not Touch Pole!” Well, this is the fun part – they actually want you to pull on the bamboo pole because when you do, you will hear a very loud crash below as if the well is caving in on the workmen below! You’ll hear a worker fall down after the crashing sound and then loud voices will yell up at you! Funny thing is, not many park visitors actually disobey the sign because it appears to be an authentic warning and there are no clues to tell you that they’re just kidding! It is a fun interactive secret at Disneyland that can add to a memorable visit! HIDDEN GEORGE LUCAS. Mega-film maker, George Lucas, has franchise investments with Disneyland, such as in the park’s attractions like “Star Tours,” and
“The Indiana Jones Adventure,” mentioned above. However, what most park visitors do not know is that Disneyland has secretly used George Lucas’ presence within the park, itself, and 98% of all visitors don’t ever catch it! For example, at Disneyland’s popular attraction, “Star Tours,” toward the end of the ride when your space vehicle is going to crash into a fuel truck, you’ll see a man who quickly ducks and moves out of the way and then grabs the emergency telephone. That mystery man is George Lucas! Lucas filmed this cameo appearance especially for “Star Tours,” and enjoys this ongoing secret most people are totally unaware of! Now you have a little ‘gem’ to share with your family and friends that’ll give them all an ‘inside laugh.’ PAGING GEORGE LUCAS! Disneyland enjoys placing these carefully-placed hidden secrets throughout the park, even knowing full-well that you may not discover them! When you’re moving with the “Star Tours” line – if you listen carefully – you will hear someone paging “Egroeg Sacul,” over and over. The name they’re paging, “Egroeg Sacul” is actually George Lucas, spelled backwards! SECRET MORSE CODE. As an ex-military person (U.S. Navy), I found a most intriguing secret that continues to remain hidden and yet is so fascinating to me! Near the New Orleans train depot you can hear Morse Code from a

‘Disney Secrets’ Cont. from Page 5
telegraph. To the average person who hears this, it is just Morse Code they don’t understand. But, the dot-dash-dot sequence made me secretly smile to myself. It even made me a tad emotional. The Morse Code translates to the very words Walt Disney spoke at the opening day of Disneyland, in 1955. The Morse Code says: “To all who come to this happy place – welcome!” YOU CAN STEER THE MARK TWAIN RIVER BOAT! Oh, wait till you hear this! This might cause a human stampede next time you board the Mark Twain Riverboat! Again, this is another secret that is truly worth knowing to make your visit at the Magic Kingdom full of unforgettable, lifetime memories! Ask a Disneyland employee onboard the Mark Twain if you may visit the captain. If no one has beat you to it, and you’re very polite, you may be escorted to a door marked, “Private.” You knock and meet the captain and again, if you’re nice enough, you may be taken up to the wheelhouse where you can steer the 105-foot long, 19th-century vessel, and even sound the horn!! Even though the boat is actually on rails, guiding its 15minute voyage around Tom Sawyer Island, creates an unmistakable illusion and thrill of ‘steering’ her which will last a lifetime! Trust me!

21, flying the F4J out of NAS Miramar, as Executive Officer in August 1973. The squadron deployed to NAAS Fallon, Nevada, that November. Before we deployed I received a phone call from Cdr. Jack Ready, the officer slated to relieve me as XO when I moved up to take command of the squadron. The Navy had acquired a Soviet MIG-21 and Jack was the lead pilot of a Navy Patuxtent River test pilot team tasked to evaluate the MIG’s air-to-air combat performance against various Navy and Air Force combat aircraft. Jack arranged for me to fly from NAAS Fallon into nearby Area 51 and observe an aerial combat encounter between a MIG-21 flown by Jack and a Marine Corps McDonnell AV-8A Harrier.
On November 13, 1973, I launched from NAAS Fallon and was given permission by the Area 51 command center to enter their air space. I was switched to the event tactical frequency and was soon in contact with Cdr. Ready, who was flying the MIG-21. I witnessed two short air-to-air engagements between the two aircraft. I did not know who was flying the Harrier nor anything about his air-to-air skill set so I had no idea how much, if any,
talking about here, especially for those readers who have no clue as to its existence! Approximately two-thirds up Disneyland’s Matterhorn Mountain, there is a small basketball court inside! It is not a regulation sized court, or even half-court. This exciting secret basketball court inside the Matterhorn Mountain begat a host of exotic theories as to its origin. The most prominent theory is that city height-codes prohibited the Matterhorn Mountain from being in Disneyland. The loophole was that if it (the Matterhorn structure) was under the category of being a sports facility building, it would be immune to any height restrictions in Orange County. This is grossly untrue. No such drama ever existed regarding this-or-that height restriction or safety code regarding the Disneyland Matterhorn Mountain! Nevertheless, popular falsehoods often linger-on despite truth to the contrary and, as such, the height-restriction story still persists today. The real truth is that, according to Tony Baxter, Sr. VP of Creative Development and Walt Disney Imagineering Dept., there was an empty space in the upper two-thirds portion of the Matterhorn Mountain and they wanted to fill its void interior with something. Walt Disney, himself, gave the okay and – viola! – a tiny recreational basketball court was put in for recreational use by the Matterhorn Mountain climbers during ‘down-time’ and/or breaks. It still remains one of the most fascinating Disneyland stories! BOBSLEDS ON LEFT ARE FASTEST. While engineering this unique ride (the world’s first
pilot skill may have biased the outcome of each engagement. The MIG-21 had its way with Harrier each time. Even though each engagement was very short, the event ended due to the low fuel state of the MIG-21.
Yes, I traveled through the Area 51 Box and I openly viewed it but all that I saw during my short time there was two fighter aircraft maneuvering and turning and rolling and scissoring in a graceful high-G dance in an effort by each to get behind the other to simulate shooting it down. As far as I know there were no Aliens present unless one was in the cockpit of the Harrier in which case the Marine Corps had been infiltrated.

steel roller coaster (1959) on tubular steel track), not all things came out equal. For example, the bobsled line on the left may be worth waiting for. Why? Because the left line to the bobsleds (on the Tomorrowland side) run faster and longer than the bobsleds on the right side (on the Fantasyland side)! So, riders on the left queue experience a faster, and longer, Matterhorn bobsled ride! Sounds like more fun to me!
THE FASTER TEA CUP. At Disneyland’s The Mad Tea Party in Fantasyland, the cups that spin faster are the lavender (or purple) tea cups! So, after a hot bowl of chili or fries, the lavender ones may not be your cup of tea! There are countless other hidden surprises to be found at Disneyland (Anaheim) that can’t all be listed here. So, it can be a ‘treasure hunt’ of sorts to try to uncover other Disneyland Hidden Secrets! Or, you can purchase the Disney Corporation’s official DVD, “The Hidden Secrets of Disney Revealed,” Questar videos).
Walt Elias Disney was born in Hermosa, Illinois, in 1901. I am hard-pressed to think of anyone who was more imaginative than he was, or anyone who made more people happy, worldwide. His beautiful theme parks now gird the world like a brightly-colored garland (Tokyo Disney, Disneyland Paris, Hong Kong Disneyland, Disney World Florida, Disneyland California, etc.) Today, citizens of the world are growing up with Disney’s wonder, imagination, and magic!
Innovations in Healthcare in CA
Ensuring the availability of high quality healthcare, especially for those suffering from chronic diseases, is one of my top priorities in Sacramento. Consequently, I was deeply honored to receive the 2015 `Life Sciences Champion Award’ from the California Life Sciences Association and another recent award naming me the California Chronic Care Coalition’s `Legislator of the Year.’
As a member of the Assembly Health Committee, I am working to open up access for new innovative treatments, cures and therapies that directly impact the lives of thousands of Californians. Since joining the Legislature in 2012, I have also authored a number of bills dealing with chronic diseases, including bills that would heighten public awareness of hepatitis, expedite the appeals process for newly prescribed
Life sometimes throws us some funny curves. For example, the Kansas City Star Newspaper once fired Walt Disney for “Not being creative enough.” It is difficult to believe they were talking about the same Walt Disney that reshaped the world with unparalleled creativity! It is, perhaps, justified irony that this same Walt Disney would, years later, buy ABC, which owned the Kansas City Star Newspaper. Hmm, the very same newspaper that once fired him for not being creative enough, would someday be owned by his Creative Empire! Walt Disney never grew up, in a manner of speaking. And he was quite proud of that fact. He often quipped, “That’s the real trouble with the world. Too many people grow up.” I like that. I also like another comment he once made before his passing: “Laughter is timeless. Imagination has no age. Dreams are forever.”
My paternal grandfather, Marshall, met Mr. Disney. Shook his hand. Mr. Disney smiled widely commenting on Grandpa’s height being close to Fess Parker’s (6’ 5”). Grandpa Marshall never forgot the handshake, followed by a warm hug. My only regret is that I never got to meet Walt Disney, who passed away December 15, 1966. But, then again, I guess I do meet him – every time I stroll down Main Street U.S.A, or laugh out loud at the antics of the characters he created for me, and for you, and for

epilepsy drugs and require that Medi-Cal benefits cover the cost of drugs prescribed for seriously ill individuals.
With its huge economic impact on our state and region, ensuring that California maintains its pivotal role as a center for life sciences research is vitally important for continuing medical advances that will improve healthcare and quality of life throughout the world. While exciting new discoveries and therapies hold great potential for patients, we must ease the transition from innovation to the bedside. These awards highlight the need to provide quality medical care for chronically ill patients and developing paradigms for access, cost efficiencies and patient outcomes. While receiving these awards was especially humbling, I look forward to continuing to do my small part to improve healthcare for all.

The ‘King’ of the Patronage System
During the 19th century, Roscoe Conkling was one of the most powerful and controversial politicians in the history of the U.S. He was from New York, serving both as a member of the United States House of Representatives and the United States Senate.
Born Oct. 30, 1829, Conkling was the leader of the “Stalwart” faction of the Republican Party, the first Republican senator from New York to be elected for three terms, and the last person to refuse a U.S. Supreme Court appointment after he already had been confirmed by the U.S. Senate. He was a staunch supporter of President U.S. Grant and a

leader supporting the Reconstruction program for the South after the Civil War, as well as the rights of former slaves. He was a key to getting Chester A. Arthur nominated as Vice President, which upon the death of President James Garfield, put Arthur in the White House. Conkling was a nemesis of President Rutherford B. Hayes, by tossing legislative roadblocks to thwart various nominations. While in the House of Representatives, Congressman Conkling served as body guard for the controversial Congressman Thaddeus Stevens, a sharp-tongued, antislavery Congressman. He fully supported the Republican Civil War effort. Conkling, who never drank alcohol and detested tobacco, was known for being a body builder through regularly exercising and boxing. Through the eight years of President Grant's administration, he was an outspoken politician supporting the President and one of the principal leaders of the Republican Party in the Senate. In 1873, Grant urged him to accept an appointment as Chief Justice of the United States, but Conkling declined. Conkling was active in framing and pushing through Congress the reconstruction legislation, and was instrumental in the passage of the second Civil Rights Act of 1875, and of the act for the resumption of specie payments, in the same year.
As a New York U.S. Senator, Conkling controlled “patronage” (favoritism in handing out government jobs) at the New York Customs House. He maintained that it was “the right of Senators” to control federal patronage in their home states. Patronage was a way of giving political favors to those who gave support both financially and election organization. Although Senator Conkling was supported by President Grant, Conkling did not like Grant's Civil Service Commission reform initiative. Conkling continued to refuse Grant's nomination of him as Chief Justice of the United States, believing his talents belonged in the Senate.
During the presidency of Rutherford B. Hayes, the fight for control over patronage led to a bitter conflict between Conkling and the President. Conkling publicly led opposition to Hayes' attempt to administer Civil Service Reform at the New York Customs House. In 1880, Conkling was supporting Grant for third term as President, however Garfield was nominated and elected. Conkling's con-

I just want to let you know that what you say about Auditory Assistants is correct.
Several weeks ago my wife found out that she had a hearing loss in both ears, and we went to the information seminar to learn more, (the same one you went to, and we talked after).
My wife liked what she heard and we made an appointment for her to try aids, they gave her a choice of 5 different price ranges, and she took the ones in the middle price range. She decided that she liked the sample model, and is now wearing them, since we ordered the ones she tried, (now she can hear what I am thinking).
While waiting for her I got to observe the staff, and found that you are correct, they treat all customers like they are family, whether on the phone or in person. Thank you, Gerry Miklos

But alas! this is not the real world. Our system of resolving disputes often requires having Lawyers who will push extremely hard in representing their clients’ positions. Even Jesus took strong measures “Jesus went to the temple in Jerusalem, made a whip of cords, and drove out the money changers who were doing business there.” I dare not compare myself to Jesus, but this is what we do in my office!

Escondido, CA—In a 2002 issue of Neurosurgical Focus, a peerreviewed article was published by a Dr. Michael D. Martin, MD et al. in which the third sentence states: “The disc itself is active tissue that contains significant mechanisms for self-repair.” That article was published by a neurosurgeon and written directly for neurosurgeons.
“The Disc Itself Is Active Tissue...”
So what does that really mean to us? It tells us that the disc itself does have a God-given ability to heal and repair if provided the proper mechanisms for self-healing. There is a specific mechanism inherent in each of the spinal discs called the “pump mechanism of disc nutri-tion” (see Fig 1). When this mechanism is not working properly, the spinal discs will begin to die causing bulges, herniations, and eventually spinal stenosis.
The spinal disc is one of the very few tissues in the body that does not have a direct blood supply for circulation. The only way that the disc gets the circulation of water, oxygen and nutrients for self-repair is via this specific disc pump mechanism. What happens when you decrease cir-culation in any type of tissue, whether it be animal tissue, plant tissue or human tissue? Exactly, it begins to become weak and begins to degenerate.

brown leaves are the plant’s problem? Of course not, the leaves turning brown is just a condition that is telling you that there is something wrong with the plant. The plant is unhealthy and needs water and nutrients. You could spray paint the leaves green but it just covers up the condition. The underlying problem still exists and will continue to produce brown leaves until you fix the actual problem. and tingling that most experience with bulging, herniated or degenerative discs are NOT the problem. The definition of a symptom: “something that indicates the existence of something else.” It is just like the dashboard of your car telling you that something is wrong (brake lights out, engine needs checked, overheating, etc.) Those lights that appear in your car dash are NOT the problem. You can remove the lights surgically or put a piece of duct tape over the lights but the problem will NOT be fixed...the problem is still present.
Let’s take a look at a plant for example...if the leaves on a plant begin to turn brown, would you say that the

extent of your disc damage for only $70. This examination will consist of a detailed neurological evaluation, extensive orthopedic testing, and a detailed analysis of the findings of your evaluation. He will sit down with you and go over your condition with you in complete detail. You will know exactly what is causing all your pain (or other symptoms).
In your spine, when the pump mechanism of disc nutrition fails, the disc will begin to de-generate and become weak. This weakness in the disc is what produces the bulging, herniated, and degenerative discs.
The treatment that is provided at Dr. Heilman’s Spine and Neuropathy Care Center in Escondido is revolutionary and is specifically designed to artificially re-create the pump mechanism in the discs which allows the spinal discs to heal and repair. The best part of the treatment is that it uses no drugs, no injections, and no surgery. Plus it’s painless and many patients relax and fall asleep while undergoing the treatment. The amount of treatment needed to allow the discs to heal and repair varies from person to person and can only be determined after a detailed neurological and orthopedic evaluation. We do NOT accept everyone for treatment and will let you know if we can accept your case for treatment. Dr. Stephen Heilman, DC at the Spine and Neuropathy Care Center in Escondido, CA will do a spinal disc severity examination to determine the

Polo is pet of the week at your Rancho Coastal Humane Society. He’s a 4 year old, 9 pound, Manx – Blue Point mix.
Polo was surrendered to Rancho Coastal Humane Society when his previous owner realized she had more pets than she could care for. He’s a friendly cat and would probably do well in a home with some young children who will respect his gentle nature.
The $100 adoption fee for Polo includes medical exam, vaccinations, neuter, and microchip. For more information call 760753-6413, visit Rancho Coastal Humane Society at 389 Requeza Street in Encinitas.
Fabby, a 3-year-old Domestic Short Hair mix, is looking for a new home. She is a sweet cat who can be a bit shy at first, so she would prefer a calm, quiet home. Once she is given time to blossom, she is very loving and easy-going. Fabby can be a little particular about how she likes to be handled, so she needs a catsavvy family who can read her cat language very well to determine her needs and preferences. Once you speak the same language, Fabby will be your new best friend! Fabby is available for adoption at San Diego Humane Society’s Escondido Campus, 3450 East Valley Parkway.
To learn more about making her part of your family, please call (760) 888-2275 or visit www.sdhumane.org.

It’s Official, Church has Changed!
If you dropped out of church a few years ago, I have good news for you! Church has changed. God is still there, but in most churches, we’ve updated the dress code, the music, the language, and the feel of it all.
Once upon a time church was way behind the culture. Some thought it was dull, boring, or irrelevant. Not so today. Drop into a local church almost anywhere in North County and you’ll find people who are living in 2016, wearing clothes from 2016, using words from 2016, and talking through issues of 2016. The pastor will present a timeless
Here are eight reasons I hope you’ll reconsider and come back to church: 1. You’ll be encouraged. 2. You’ll learn something useful. 3. You’ll meet with God. 4. You’ll meet people who are working on improving themselves. 5. You’ll meet people who are working on improving the world. 6. You’ll learn the Bible. 7. You’ll grow spiritually. 8. You can get prayer there.
This is your official invitation from God, and me: You are invited to church this weekend. God wants you there. He’ll meet you there. I hope I’ll see you there! Dr. Hal Seed
P.S. – New Song offers twelve services in four different locations, from Saturday night to Sunday morning, from Carlsbad to Fallbrook. One of our services is in Spanish, another is online. Check us out: www.newsongchurch.com I think you’ll be glad you did.

tinued conflict with President Garfield over New York Customs House patronage led to his resignation from the Senate in May 1881.
After Garfield's assassination in 1881, Vice President Chester A. Arthur became President. When President Arthur offered his friend Conkling an associate justice seat on the Supreme Court, Conkling accepted the offer and was approved by the Senate. However, Conkling later changed his mind and refused to serve. He practiced law in New York until his death in 1888.
In protest, Conkling resigned with his fellow Senator Thomas C. Platt, confident that he would be re-elected by the New York legislature (at the time, senators were chosen by their states' legislatures). However, he was defeated in the resulting special election after an almost two-month-long struggle between the opposing factions of the Republican Party. Afterwards he resumed the practice of law in New York City. In 1882, Conkling again declined a nomination to the United States Supreme Court. He died April 18, 1888. While some argue, the outright practice of “patronage” pretty much ended in the mid-1950s.

feet away. Although saddened by the loss of the tree that may have been two hundred years old, the Cojulun’s are very relieved that no one was hurt. Homeowner Axel Cojulun said that he was eating an orange at the kitchen sink, when he thought he heard a branch fall and watched through the window as the tree suddenly crashed to the earth. Almost immediately, first responders from the Fire and Police Departments arrived with lights and sirens activated; neighbors had called 9-1-1, fearful that someone had been hurt when the tree fell. The small board and batten one-bedroom cottage had been moved to its current location from a lot on 7th Avenue, east of Centre City Parkway seven years ago and the Cojulun’s had planned to restore it but had not yet started.
It was possibly good fortune that they had not done so or odds were good that anyone living there would surely have been killed. The bungalow had been one of ten workers’ cottages that had housed sheep ranch workers almost a century ago. It was rescued from demolition and moved to this lot; only one other of the original ten is believed to stand now.

Twenty years ago “malware” consisted of viruses that were created for fun. Virus writers weren’t professionals, their motivation was strictly personal. They were nerdy smartasses who got a kick out of being able to make life miserable for business and home users. For them it was a way to show off by proving that they were smarter than the rest of us. It is entirely different today. The “malware” today is produced by professionals and is all about money.

WARNING - IMPORTANT INFORMATION
California law provides that, for purposes of division of property upon dissolution of a marriage or domestic partnership or upon legal separation, property acquired by the parties during marriage or domestic partnership in joint form is presumed to be community property. If either party to this action should die before the jointly held community property is divided, the language in the deed that characterizes how title is held (i.e., joint tenancy, tenants in common, or community property) will be controlling, and not the community property presumption. You should consult your attorney if you want the community property presumption to be written into the recorded title to the property.

A hearing on the petition will be held in this court as follows: Date: March 1, 2016 Time: 11 a.m. Dept: PC1 Address of court: Same as noted above. If you object to the granting of the petition, you should appear at the hearing and state your objections or file written objections with the court before the hearing. Your appearance may be in person or by your attorney. If you are a creditor or a contingent creditor of the decedent, you must file your claim with the court and mail a copy to the personal representative appointed by the court within the later of either (1) four months from the date of first issuance of letters to a general personal representative, as defined in Section 58(b) of the California Probate Code, or (2) 60 days from the date of mailing or personal delivery to you of a notice under section 9052 of the California Probate Code. Other California statues and legal authority may affect your rights as a creditor. You may want to consult with an attorney knowledgeable in California law. You may examine the file kept by the court. If you are a peson interested in the estate, you may file with the court a Request for Special Notice (form DE-154) of the filing of an inventory and appraisal of estate assets or of any petition or account as provided in Probate Code section 1250.

NOTICE TO THE PUBLIC OF FINDING OF NO SIGNIFICANT IMPACT AND NOTICE OF INTENT TO REQUEST RELEASE OF FUNDS
February 11, 2016
Grantee: City of San Marcos Address: Public Works Department, 201 Mata Way San Marcos, CA 92069 The purpose of this notice is to satisfy two separate but related procedural requirements for activities to be undertaken by the City of San Marcos.
REQUEST FOR RELEASE OF FUNDS On or about February 29, 2016 the City of San Marcos, California, will submit a request to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for the release of Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds under Title I of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974, as amended (P.L. 93-383), to undertake Phase 1 of a project known as Richmar Park, for the purpose of developing a neighborhood park with $1.5 million in funding on a 2.86acre site in the City of San Marcos. FINDING OF NO SIGNIFICANT IMPACT
The City of San Marcos has determined that the project will have no significant impact on the human environment. Therefore, an Environmental Impact Statement under the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) is not required. Additional project information is contained in the Environmental Review Record (ERR) on file at the City of San Marcos, Development Services Department, Planning Division, 1 Civic Center Drive, San Marcos, California 92069, for review and may be examined or copied weekdays Monday through Thursday 7:30 A.M. to 5:30 P.M, and every other Friday 7:30 A.M. to 5:30 P.M., and at www.sanmarcos.net. PUBLIC COMMENTS
Any individual, group, or agency disagreeing with this determination or wishing to comment on the project may submit written comments to Susan Vandrew-Rodriguez, Associate Planner, City of San Marcos, 1 Civic Center Drive, San Marcos, CA 92069. All comments received by February 26, 2016 will be considered by the City of San Marcos prior to authorizing submission of a request for release of funds. Comments should specify which Notice they are addressing. RELEASE OF FUNDS
The City of San Marcos certifies to HUD that Michael Edwards in his capacity as Director of Public Works consents to accept the jurisdiction of the Federal Courts if an action is brought to enforce responsibilities in relation to the environmental review process and that these responsibilities have been satisfied. HUD's approval of the certification satisfies its responsibilities under NEPA and related laws and authorities, and allows the City of San Marcos to use Program funds. OBJECTIONS TO RELEASE OF FUNDS HUD will accept objections to its release of funds and the City of San Marcos's certifica-
tion for a period of fifteen days following the anticipated submission date or its actual receipt of the request (whichever is later) only if they are on one of the following bases: (a) the certification was not executed by the Certifying Officer of the Responsible Entity (RE); (b) the RE has omitted a step or failed to make a decision or finding required by HUD regulations at 24 CFR Part 58; (c) the grant recipient has committed funds or incurred costs not authorized by 24 CFR Part 58 before approval of a release of funds by HUD; or (d) another Federal agency acting pursuant to 40 CFR Part 1504 has submitted a written finding that the project is unsatisfactory from the standpoint of environmental quality. Objections must be prepared and submitted in accordance with the required procedures (24 CFR Part 58) and shall be addressed to HUD’s Los Angeles Field Office at 611 West Sixth Street, Suite 801, Los Angeles, CA 90017. Potential objectors should contact HUD to verify the actual last day of the objection period.
