Probably no piece of real estate on the planet ever gave forth such a constellation of comedy stars as the Borscht Belt, sometimes called “The Jewish Alps,” but more commonly known as the Catskill Mountains, located in upstate New York. The Borscht Belt was a legendary proving ground for upcoming Jewish entertainers, as well as a familiar landmark for the seasoned performer. Overall, it was a multi-hotel resort haven for Jewish-American families to play, eat, fraternize, and be entertained, from the 1920s onward. The Borscht Belt was a matrix for generating first-magnitude Jewish comedians, such as: Jack Benny, Woody Allen, Mel Brooks, Billy Crystal, Jerry Lewis, Carl Reiner, Joan Rivers, The Three Stooges, Groucho Marx, Sid Caesar, Danny Kaye, Buddy Hackett, and countless others! However, the Borscht Belt was not exclusively a launching pad which propelled many Jewish comedians into the limelight, the Borscht Belt also proved to be the indispensable training grounds which ignited the careers of such extraordinary gentile talents as: Phyllis Diller, Rowan & Martin (of NBC’s smash hit, “Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In”), Jonathan Winters, and many more!
Borscht Belt humor refers to the rapid-fire delivery, and few could match Jewish comedian, Henny Youngman! He was highly thought of for his hilarious ‘schtick’ (from the Yiddish: shtik). He was the fastest comic of his day, clocked at delivering an astonishing eight or more jokes per minute, sometimes exceeding 50 jokes in a span of only eight minutes! Rarely did a joke last more than 24 seconds. He was not only quick, but his jokes were hilariously rich in comedic imagery: “While playing golf today I hit two good balls. I stepped on a rake!” Holding a violin down by his side, it would become more a prop than an instrument. Youngman’s quick nonstop delivery showed no mercy for his audience which often The Paper - 760.747.7119
gasped for air between fits of uncontrolled laughter! He gave them no rest period. “My older brother-in-law died. He was a karate expert. Then he joined the Army. The first time he saluted, he killed himself.” His timing was deadly at quick bursts of comedic fire-power, so much so that his monologues would become the talk of the town at such Jewish digs as Carnegie Deli, Delancey Street, the Friars Club and, of course, the summer resorts at the Borscht Belt. Henny Youngman’s lifelong friend, the legendary Borscht Belt standup comic, Myron Cohen, was his exact opposite. Cohen spoke in a contrived thick Yiddish accent, and was a masterful storyteller who took his measure in setting up his punch lines. Cohen’s popularity would see him appear on the
Ed Sullivan Show 26 times, to Youngman’s 20.
At 6’ 2” Youngman was an unusual species of his day during the early 1930s, miniaturizing many of his fellow Jewish comedians -- who like himself - were largely unknown. These unknown contemporaries of Henny Youngman often stood in the wings, waiting to go on after Youngman completed his set. More often than not, they were short comics, who struggled for recognition, such as Red Buttons who only stood at 5’ 6” or George Burns at 5’ 7” and Don Rickles 5’ 6.” Red Buttons, whose hair color matched his name, was a Borscht favorite-son, “Ninety isn’t old,” he would tell his attentive audiences, “You’re old when your doctor doesn’t X-

ray you anymore. He just holds you up to the light!” And when it was his turn to take the stage, a young George Burns (without Gracie) did not disappoint. Puffing his cigar, Burns took his time, showing uncanny calm and smoothness in his delivery, an admirable style that Borscht Belt comics call “Burning slow.” George Burns’ lines were smooth as molasses and self-deprecating and scored big each time out: “I love to sing, and I love to drink scotch. Most people -- would rather hear me drink scotch.” As for Don Rickles, he would quickly learn his craft to become “The Merchant of Venom.” He was young, inexperienced, and learning his craft as he navigated through various ‘schtick,’ weeding out the lines that did not play. He knew his limits in insulting his

audience. “If I were to insult people and mean it, that wouldn’t be funny,” he would say. Rickles quickly found he was a bad joke-teller. But he was able to insult his audience and make them like it! “I just can’t tell jokes,” he once confessed. “It wasn’t that someone gave me a hard time and I insulted him back. It’s just that I tell jokes badly but as a young man I had the personality that allowed me to rib somebody and get away with it. My father was the same way. My mother was a Jewish General Patton.” Looking over his audience, Rickles would carpet bomb them with insult after insult, “Oh, my God, look at you! Anyone else hurt in the accident?” He found his winning formula and it has sustained Rickles to this day as he is still performing at various casinos at age 89.
In those early years, in the 1930s, Henny Youngman could see his fellow Jewish comics in the wings, pacing and waiting to hit their respective marks, hoping for recognition and a bigger salary that comes with it. As for Youngman, he was so good at sustaining a steady volley of quick, short jokes,

that one night a man sitting in the darkened audience, hat still on his head, quickly scribbled words on a piece of paper, that would forever change Youngman’s career, for the better! The author of the scribbled note that night was none other than Walter Winchell, America’s most powerful newspaper columnist of his era! Winchell’s conferred title, “The King of the One-Liners,” would become a lifelong Henny Youngman trademark name. Walter Winchell, who was also Jewish, wielded almost unlimited power and influence that would become so formidable in his heyday that it was said that a few words from his column could make-or-break an entertainer’s career, or even close a newly-opened Broadway play, or other business venture, such as a restaurant. At his height of power, Walter Winchell’s newspaper column would be syndicated in over 2,000 newspapers worldwide, and read by over 50 million people, every day, from the 1920s until the early 1960s. Winchell’s reach of power crossed into multiple arenas. In 1948, Winchell would have the top-rated radio show when he surpassed the great Fred Allen and Jack Benny, respectively. Appearing in Winchell’s window-to-the-world newspaper column, Henny Youngman’s life, suddenly, became common

Fox News will little note, nor long remember what I say here, but it can never forget to twist the truth of what I did here, which I would tell you about if I did something. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work, by Mexican immigrants who are stupid and lazy and never finish the work, which they who fought for a half hour for lunch here have thus far so nobly postponed. I here highly resolve, very very very highly, the highest, that these dead shall not have died in vain -that this nation, under God, who is a personal friend of mine and a very, very nice guy by the way, shall have a new birth of freedom, because Hillary can't abort it -- and that government of me, by me, and for me, shall not perish from the earth, and get great ratings, great reviews, and a lifetime achievement Oscar.

knowledge to a vast readership around the world! His humble and nomadic beginnings was inspiring to all: originally born Henry Yungman, in 1906 London, England, at a Jewish Hospital (when his parents lived with in-laws in England), the Youngmans returned to live in the Bay Ridge section of Brooklyn, where Henny found a close school chum, a chubby boy by the name of John Herbert Gleason. His younger friend’s name would soon be shortened to Jackie Gleason, who would someday find immortality in the hit television show, “The Honeymooners.”
Youngman’s life quickly became a classic study for other comedians who followed after him. His one-liners were text-book-perfect, universal, and fast on the uptake: “I once wanted to become an atheist, but I gave up – they have no holidays,” and “I told my doctor I broke my leg in two places. He told me to quit going to those two places!” But Youngman also knew how to ‘load’ his quick-delivery with punch lines more flavored to his Jewish audience: “A Jewish boy asks his father for twenty dollars. His father replied, ‘Ten dollars?! Why in the world do you need five dollars?! I’d be happy to give you a dollar, so here -- here’s a quarter!’” or a plane . . . why’d they get so excited? ••••• “I wasn’t that drunk . . .”

"Ole, I am goin' huntin' tomorrow and don't want to close the clinic. I want you to take care of the clinic and take care of all my patients." "Yes, sir!" answers Ole.
The doctor goes hunting and returns the following day and asks: "So, Ole, How was your day?" Ole told him that he took care of three patients. "The first one had a headache so I gave him TYLENOL."
Money was always a high priority to Henny Youngman, throughout his lifetime. In countless interviews he went on record emphasizing his advice to other upcoming entertainers, “Nem de Gelt” (Yiddish for “Take the money”). Even after gaining world-fame, Youngman would ferret out any opportunity for added income. TV producer, Mark Evanier, recalls how Youngman would, literally, take his violin and go to some hotel that had banquet rooms, then read the lobby directory to find the party or banquet (often a Bar Mitzvah reception). Henny Youngman would then find the room and ask to meet whomever was in charge of paying for the event! Evanier said Youngman would introduce himself, negotiate a price right there on the spot, then close the deal. In these cases, Youngman performed for prices that would range from $200 to $500 (and he always preferred cash, if possible).
Though it must be conceded that Henny Youngman enjoyed performing, it must also be said, by his own admission, that he was very much driven by the money factor. Youngman audaciously used

"Bravo, mate, and the second one?" asks the doctor. "The second one had stomach burning and I gave him MAALOX, sir," says Ole.
"Bravo, bravo! You're good at this and what about the third one?" asks the Doctor. "Sir, I was sitting here and suddenly the door opens and a woman enters. Like a flame, she undresses herself, taking off everything, and lies down on the table and shouts: 'HELP ME - I haven't seen a man in over two years!!'"

Another colorful incident, similar in nature, occurred when Henny Youngman was in the company of acclaimed moviecritic, Roger Ebert. In 2011 a surprised Ebert observed Henny Youngman taping an NBC television show and then, when they both occupied the same elevator, the elevator stopped on the second floor at a private wedding reception. Youngman quickly departed the elevator, asked to meet the father of the bride and said, “I’m Henny Youngman. I’ll do 10 minutes for $100.”
To his credit, Henny Youngman worked almost every day of his life, a working life which spanned over 70 years! The only exceptions, when he did not seek employment, were a week after his wife’s death, and the month he was hospitalized, where he died of pneumonia at age 91. The delivery-speed of his monologues would become legendary, a legacy. In 1974, when the New York Telephone Company started a Dial-a-Joke line, they chose Henny Youngman as its first comedian. Remarkably, in the service’s first month of operation, Dial-a-Joke received over 3million calls (3,331,638 to be exact) from people who wanted to hear 30-seconds of his jokes! The New Yorker Magazine writer, Tony Hiss, called him

February Adoption Specials – Calling all
“The world’s hardest-working comedian.” An assessment few would challenge, even today. In truth, Henny Youngman never retired. He worked, diligently, until death claimed him.
Youngman’s rapid delivery style would be emulated by others, most notably, Rodney Dangerfield (born Jacob Rodney Cohen), twenty-oneyears his junior and, subsequently, known as “The Prince of the One-Liners.” In his own right, Dangerfield would become universal in his popularity, even eclipsing Youngman. Of the two, Dangerfield struggled longer before hitting his stride. Performing at many hotels in the Borscht Belt circuit as late as the early 1960s, Dangerfield had still only achieved minimal success, during which time Dangerfield said he fell deeply into debt to the tune of $20,000, and admitted he still could not get booked. Reflecting back on those lean years at the Catskills, Dangerfield would later joke, “I played one club that was so far out that my act was reviewed in Field & Stream Magazine!” Like other Jews of his era, Rodney Dangerfield’s childhood years were of great torment and emotional trauma, brought on by his overtly antiSemitic teachers, as well as from the more affluent nonJewish students who bullied him, mercilessly. Growing up Jewish would prove to be painful for many. Some became coarse, even belligerent, as a result of their upbringing. In later years, radio shock jock, Howard Stern, initially denied being Jewish on both sides of his parentage over the airwaves; instead he falsely claimed to be

The advent of the Borscht Belt was, certainly, a ‘reply’ of sorts over discrimination against people of Jewish descent. The word “borscht” has its root meaning from a beet-based soup that was popular among Ashkenazi Jewish immigrants. The dish is traditional fare of Russian and Ukrainian cuisine. Despite its popularity among sectors of the Jewish culture, it is not Jewish in origin. Borscht Belt hotels sprung up in the Catskill Mountains and quickly became a vacation and recreation geta-away for Jewish-American families who were, otherwise, often made to feel unwelcomed at non-Jewish establishments. Jews were not permitted to join non-Jewish country clubs. Famed comedian, Groucho Marx, recalls how one such club agreed to set aside its “NoJew” rule in order to allow Groucho to join its membership ranks, on the condition that Groucho not use the club’s swimming pool. Groucho Marx replied in sarcasm: “My daughter is only half-Jewish, can she wade into the swimming pool up to her knees?” As a refuge, the Borscht Belt was created where JewishAmerican families were not only welcomed but, catered to, by elaborate and complex resort hotels featuring live entertainment, and recreational fun such as boating, swimming, parks, shopping, and more. The Catskill Mountains quickly became nationallyknown as great resort living.

The mostly-Jewish vaudeville greats all trafficked through the Borscht Belt. However, its decline seemed inevitable. Air travel made other destinations seem closer than before. Its swan song was evident in 1978, when gentile comedian, Bob Hope, was paid to make his sole appearance at the Borscht Belt. After which, only memories lingered on as the vast sentinels of resort hotels began to disappear.
Today, the Catskills, which were once called the “Borscht Belt” and the “Jewish Alps” of yesteryear, and which catered to predominantly JewishAmericans, is now experiencing a comeback with a completely new look and more cosmopolitan clientele. Its rebirth into a more modern Gentile mode is evident in its various advertising which touts such trends as micro-brewed beers, and pubs, as well as various events such as the popular Belleayre Music Festival, winter skiing, and trendy healthconscious eating establishments, a far cry from the old Jewish deli foods. Many who now patronize the Catskills are unfamiliar and somewhat disinterested with its distant past of vaudeville greats and Jewish beginnings. “Millennials don’t know much about the history of the Catskills,” says Randy Lewis, a founder of the popular Catskill Brewery, which recently opened. “This new generation is interested in renewing the healthy lifestyle, eating good local foods, and getting out of the city,” Lewis explains. “It’s a natural fit for them. In fact, I see tons of millennials at the

On Thursday, February 11th, at around 3pm, the Escondido Police Communications Center received a 911 call from a mother who reported that her car had just been stolen, with her five month old daughter inside. The mother told responding officers that she was leaving her residence in the 1000 block of Rock Springs Rd. The mother had placed her baby in the car seat when she realized that she had forgotten something inside. The mother quickly ran inside and picked up the item that she had forgotten. In the short amount of time that it took the mother to run inside, an unknown suspect stole her vehicle with the baby still in the car seat. A child in the neighborhood witnessed the theft. Escondido police officers, detectives, allied agency personnel, and the San Diego Sheriff’s Department helicopter all responded quickly and began an extensive search for the 2014 Toyota Camry. Approximately forty-five minutes later a citizen called police with a possible sighting of the stolen car in the area of Grand Ave. and Rose St. Officers converged on the area and within a few minutes found the stolen car abandoned in a parking lot at 1501 E. Grand Ave. The baby was found safe and still seated in the car seat. The baby was okay and returned to her parents.
A search for the suspect was con-
ducted, but he was not located. The suspect was described as a Hispanic male in his 30’s with a medium height and build. He was wearing a white T-shirt, dark colored pants, with an unknown tattoo appearing under his right shirt sleeve.
Detectives are investigating and encouraging anyone with information about this case to call Escondido Police at 760-839-4722, or leave an anonymous tip at 760743-TIPS (8477). Escondido Police Not Pursuing Charges Against San Pasqual H.S. Students
On January 27th, an Escondido Police School Resource Officer determined that probable cause existed to charge San Pasqual High School students Sam Serrato and Brandon Cappelletti with a misdemeanor for possessing knives on a school campus. Cappelletti was issued a misdemeanor citation. It was recommended that Serrato’s case be handled through the Juvenile Diversion Program. As with all criminal matters, the Escondido Police Department conducted a thorough review of the cases against Serrato and Cappelletti. Following the review, and based on the totality of the circumstances, the Escondido Police Department has decided to not submit the cases to the District Attorney’s Office, or to the Juvenile Diversion Program.

Don Anderson brings many memories.
When I first came to Escondido, back in 1970, I managed the then-local radio station, KOWN. There was this handsome, young, blonde-haired kid working for the city at the time as a recreational aide. His name was Don Anderson.
I watched Don grow into a full time staff position with the city of Escondido . . . eventually becoming the top management specialist in his field of parks and recreation. Always cool, always level-headed, always able to work with everybody.
He’s retired now but he’s still just as youthful looking as when I first met him at Grape Day Park about 100 years ago.

No charges will be pursued in the case against Brandon Cappelletti and Sam Serrato.
The safety of those attending schools in our community is paramount. Incidents where someone brings a weapon onto school property must always be taken seriously. Such cases warrant a thorough investigation by school officials and law enforcement. The administrative investigation conducted by school officials, as well as the criminal investigation conducted by law enforcement will include looking into all of the facts and circumstances that led to a weapon ending up on a school campus. Both investigative processes worked as designed; as is evidenced by the appropriate conclusion in the cases involving Sam Serrato and Brandon Cappelletti. The Escondido Police Department and the Escondido Union High School District want to remind all students and parents that bringing ANY WEAPON onto school property will be taken seriously.

Roy was instrumental in helping get The Paper off the ground when we first bought it back in 1999. He was probably our biggest cheerleader at the time.
He would ride with me as we delivered papers in Lake San Marcos. He also wrote a history column for several years about San Marcos.
In the course of time I met and got to know Bev Haskins as well. You’d see Roy and Bev Haskins all over Lake San Marcos as well as San Marcos itself. They both had an interest in history and became very active in the San Marcos Historical Center, both Roy and Bev eventually becoming its president. After his term as president, Roy continued to serve as vice-president and continued to write historical articles for the newsletter. Together, they breathed life into the San Marcos Historical Society and helped build it into what it is today. We came across a photo of Bev in her bathing suit. I believe it was in Hawaii . . . it was a preretirement holiday, celebrating Roy’s brilliant career in the Air Force and his upcoming retirement. Back then we also had a feature that would run photos of people that were taken years ago . . . sometimes baby pictures, sometimes just photos from 20, 30, 40 years ago. We ran Bev’s pin-up photo.
Letters to the Editor Ghost Writers
I find your comment that the "...hardy pioneers did not really talk in such elegant terms..." to be judgemental, and your belief that the narrative is therefore "...almost amusing..." to be condescending. The pioneers as a group were made up of all manner of men from many walks of life and varying levels of education.

It drew a lot of attention as Bev was a mighty good looking pinup gal . . . eventualy someone guessed who it was (I think we gave new clues each week) and we had another winner.
Bev was a good friend to have. She could be feisty if she needed to be . . . she wanted to get things done and, by golly, they got done. But she could also be tender, loving, kind and mighty hard working.
I called Roy the other day to extend my condolences. He told me he and Bev had been married for 53 years. They were good for each other, the ideal couple. I was surprised to learn that Roy is 90 years old. He doesn’t look a day over 60.
I remember how helpful Roy was in teaching members of our youth diversion group, Los Caballeros de Aventura (The Gentlemen of Adventure) how to pilot a plane. He had an Aircraft Flight Simulator and would spend hours with the kids explaining aviation, weather, radio technique, navigation, how to take off, how to land, all the basics.
I would not be at all surprised if one or more of those kids are pilots today, thanks to Roy’s guidance. For certain, these kids all learned to respect aviation and aviators, again thanks

brewery on weekends, coming up from their apartments in Brooklyn.” The resurgence of popularity at the Catskills has also proven a vacation spot for Europeans, as well. The new Catskills was even featured in The New York Times’ list of must-see-destinations in 2015. Casino gambling has added to the list of new features which has caused a direct boast of a 1-2% increase of regional room occupancy, according to the Sullivan Tourism Association. The changing times often come with a caveat: It’s not always for the better. Keeping up with these times can be fodder for the cannons of comedians to take aim at: “It’s hard for me to get used to these changing times. I can remember when the air was clean and sex was dirty,” George Burns once quipped. And traditions once thought unbreakable, soon proved fragile at best.
For instance, many staunch Jewish celebrities married Gentile women: George Burns, George Jessell, Phil Silvers, Bert Lahr, and all the Marx Brothers, to name but a few. All of which caused Jewish comedian Alan King to quip, “The rate of Jewish intermarriage is a serious problem. Scientists estimate that unless
something can be done to stop intermarriage, in 100 years, the Jewish people will be reduced to a race of gorgeous blonds.” Alan King (1927–2004) was easily a top-drawer comic and social commentator, a doublethreat performer. He often made amusing observations: “A short summary of every Jewish holiday – ‘They tried to kill us; we won; let’s eat!’” Times were, indeed, changing and with it came the demise of Vaudeville and the Borscht Belt as the once-revered proving-grounds for the fledgling Jewish entertainer. It was no more. Though the Borscht Belt physically remains, it ceases to resemble its former self. Wistful memories and ghosts of another era seem to be the lot of past vaudevillians and their precious Borscht Belt circuit. In essence, it has vanished with the times.
It is estimated that 80% of American professional comics, today, are Jewish. It is a rich and varied legacy, like a magnificent golden thread which winds its way back, in serpentine fashion, to such luminaries in the ‘art of laughter’ as George Burns, Eddie Cantor, Jack Carter, Joey Bishop, Phil Silvers, Mel Brooks, Jackie

Mason, and many others, long forgotten by many, today. In several random polls conducted on the street, most of today’s younger generation, age 18 to 35 have never heard of Sid Caesar, Milton Berle, Jack Benny, Danny Kaye, Buddy Hackett, Red Buttons, or even Henny Youngman – all visionaries and the greatest of pioneers in our indispensable culture that is Americana. Today’s younger audiences are more-quick to chat-up details on Eddie Murphy, Steven Wright, Jim Carrey, and the ever-popular Will Ferrell. Yet all these current comedy stars merely stand aloft the shoulder blades of their predecessors, the giants of show-business who first blazed the way before them, and who set the standards by which everyone else is measured, today. Yet, these harbingers of yesteryear are now, sadly, requiem-quiet in most contemporary discussions of great comedians. Many are now unknown names, unrecognized by most of our current generation. Such is life. Not all change is for the better. Anti-Semitism is still prevalent today. The Borscht Belt still survives, but under a different moon and ambience. It has been said that if one slowly strolls
through the nouveau Borscht Belt today, under soft moonlight, on a quiet evening, sometimes a summer breeze will gently caress your face, as if whispering a reminder of another time, another world, and a bygone era. To some, it is suddenly 1950 again, and memories slowly escort you to a distant glow of a hotel ballroom, which is the source of occasional mirth and laughter. A Jewish comedian is holding court onstage and his delivered lines make you smile in your imagination: “You know you’re Jewish because your dog responds to Yiddish! And, you’re as tall as your grandmother by the age of seven! Yes, you’re Jewish! Because you have at least six male relatives named David, and also because you thought that yelling was normal!” The memories can be bittersweet. You laugh, and perhaps wipe away a tear, or two. Where does the time go, you hear yourself ask out loud? Memories have the good intention and tendency to serve up the best in life. And that is a good thing. When we are in our twilight years, memories are often all we truly have when we slowly begin to pack our bags in preparation for our

Great email from Cmdr. Newlin, Lyle! Much thanks for passing it along to me. As a former USN man, it had special significance for me.
Since my Area 51 story broke (1/28/16) I've been approached by a significant number of military personnel (both active and inactive), from various branches, who had recognized my photo from previous stories. In each case, they warmly embraced me and spoke highly of my literary work. It is one thing to be recognized by the general populace, but it hits 'close to home' when my 'military family' salutes my work! I come from a military family, so it has always been in my blood.
Thanks again, Lyle, for sharing Cmdr. Newlin's thoughts with me. He and others always remind of the best aspects of our country. Best Always, Frederick Gomez

Supporting our Veterans
Though many government programs impacting our country’s veterans originate at the federal level, whenever possible I will continue to support state initiatives to improve the lives of California’s large, growing veterans population. With well over 200,000 veterans calling this region home, it is also important to encourage and support non-governmental organizations and local businesses when they join together to serve those who have sacrificed so much for our freedom. Homes for Our Troops is one such organization. A privately funded 501 (c) (3), the group builds specially adapted, mortgage-free homes for severely injured veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan Wars. Since its inception in 2004, Homes for Our Troops has built over 190 homes, with 90 percent of the funds raised used to finance specially outfitted homes for our country’s most severely injured veterans.
Recently, I was honored to author an Assembly Resolution
saluting this outstanding organization at a ground breaking ceremony in Escondido. A new home is being built for Marine Sgt. Toran Gaal, who sustained a brain injury and lost both legs to an IED in Afghanistan. Once complete, Sgt. Gaal’s home will have an open kitchen layout, lack of narrow confining spaces and other amenities designed specifically to fit his needs. The manner in which these funds were raised is truly inspiring. For example, local businesses stepped up to help build Sgt. Gaal’s home and to provide necessary financing and home amenities. These businesses include CertaPro Painters, Youngren Construction, Budget Blinds and Prospect Mortgage. We must never forget the debt we owe to our veterans. If the outpouring of support for groups like Homes for Our Troops is any indication, we never will. It is truly an honor to represent such outstanding people in the California Legislature.

3. I do not know the name of the father of my little girl. She was conceived at a party at 3600 East Grand Boulevard where I had sex with a man I met that night. I do remember that the sex was so good that I fainted. If you do manage to track down the father, can you please send me his phone number? Thanks... (The runnerup). 4.

The President Who Won the West
When you consider that James K. Polk was President during the Mexican War, which resulted in the acquisition of California, Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico, and Utah, plus bringing Oregon, Idaho, a portion of Montana, and Washington as well as annexing Texas into the Union, one could say Polk was the President who won the West.
James Knox Polk was born Nov. 2, 1795. He was the 11th President of the United States (1845-49). Polk was born in Mecklenburg County, North Carolina. He later lived in and represented Tennessee in the House of Representatives. Polk made his first major speech in Congress on March 13, 1826, in
the country.. Please advise.

Polk was the dark horse candidate for President in 1844, defeating Henry Clay of the rival Whig Party by promising to annex Texas. Polk’s nickname was "Young Hickory" because of his close association with "Old Hickory," Andrew Jackson. When advised of his 1844 nomination for President, Polk replied: "It has been well observed that the office of President of the United States should neither be sought nor declined. I have never sought it, nor should I feel at liberty to decline it, if conferred upon me by the voluntary suffrages of my fellow citizens."
Polk is often considered the last strong pre–Civil War president, having met during his four years in office every major domestic and foreign policy goal set during his campaign and the transition to his administration: When Mexico rejected American annexation of Texas, Polk led the nation to a sweeping victory in the Mexican–American War, seizing nearly the whole of what is now the American Southwest. He threatened war with England over who owned the Oregon Country, eventually reaching a settlement in which the British were made to sell the portion that became the Oregon Territory. Additionally, he built an independent treasury system that lasted until 1913; oversaw the opening of the U.S. Naval Academy, the Smithsonian Institution, the groundbreaking for the Washington Monument, and the issuance of the first United States postage stamp. Because the Democratic Party was splintered into bitter factions, Polk promised to serve only one term if elected, hoping that his disappointed rival Democrats would unite behind him with the knowledge that another candidate would be chosen in four years.
When he took office on March 4, 1845, Polk, at 49, became the youngest man at the time to assume the presidency. This was the first inaugural ceremony to be reported by telegraph and to be shown in a newspaper illustration (in The Illustrated London News). True to his campaign pledge to

In 47 years in the law business I have learned a few
things: I am not super religious, but I tell my clients that if we did what Jesus said “Love your neighbor as yourself” and “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you” we would not need Laws, Lawyers, Judges or Courts. 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!

Pastor Sam Brumit Mission 316, San Marcos, CA. What’s Your Burning Bush?
Sometimes I feel like Moses. (Not that I'm that old yet, been in a classic movie or delivered millions of people from oppression). I mean I have had various encounters with God. I’ve had times (like Moses) that I’ve been asked to do something for him and resisted – making excuses or asking Him to use someone else. Other times He has been clear and practically used “burning bushes” to speak. Still other times I ran ahead of God and did things in my own power and wound up “slaying an Egyptian” here and there. More than I want to admit, like Moses, I have been on the backside of the desert and my
One time Moses had a rod in his hand one day and God tells him to lay it down. It was just a stick, but represented something much greater. Working with flocks, it was who he was, how he made a living … it was his identity.
For him, laying all that down was not easy. It took a “burning bush” to get his attention. Occasionally God will speak in dramatic ways to us. God will do what it takes to help us realize our future. Moses was sometimes a reluctant leader. He tried to get out of it, but the Lord had this calling for him and made it clear in His timing. We all have the tendency to think “I can’t do this” or “There are others who are more qualified”
Still, God has plans for us. He might speak through a “still small voice” or a “whisper”. At times his voice may be through a burning bush. At that point, it would pay to just take off your shoes, quit arguing and follow Him. If you do, it ultimately will be life changing. Yield to Him and amazing things might just happen.

A Weekly Message from the Mayor of Your Community published in the belief that it is important for elected leaders to communicate with their constituents and that constituents have a means of hearing from their elected leaders.
San Marcos • Mayor Jim Desmond
What’s Growing on with the Civic Center Lawn?
In February, crews continued work to plant water-wise landscaping surrounding the city’s Civic Center located along San Marcos Boulevard to set the water-saving example. Knowing that California still faces unprecedented drought conditions, this project is helping the city be good stewards of local water resources.
While recently planted varieties may look like grass from the past, the new “Native Move Free Sod” requires 50 percent less water than a traditional lawn and only needs mowing eight times per year. Irrigated with well water, higher efficiency irrigation technology with drip emitters and high-efficiency spray nozzles will also
be put in place.
Landscape designs also call for a variety of succulents and yellow blanket flowers instead of intensive, high maintenance ornamental turf.
By transforming the landscaped area, the city not only expects to reduce water use but it will also trim down on landscape maintenance costs for fertilizers, weed control and labor. The $400,000 project is paid for in part by funding from the Water Security, Clean Drinking Water, Coastal and Beach Protection Act. To see the landscape designs, visit www.san-marcos.net.

Vista • Mayor Judy Ritter
Improving Vista’s Parks & Roads
During the past year, over 25 percent of our city streets have been repaired, including Melrose, Shadowridge, Civic Center, and Hacienda drives; and Sycamore and Olive avenues. Once the winter wet season ends, street maintenance and repairs will begin again around the city (spring, 2016) and the percentage of streets improved will increase to 35 percent. These improvements will continue to focus on the major roadways in the city where many people drive, as well as some residential areas in need of repair. These improvements will continue to make a positive difference in the quality of
driving throughout the city. In addition, the City is also investing $7 million in new park amenities, equipment upgrades and improvements.
Residents can also look forward this summer to the completion of the wetland creek restoration and nature trail and bridge improvements along the north side of Brengle Terrace Park, between the parking lot adjacent to the Jim Porter Rec Center and Vale Terrace Drive. The project, a key link in the citywide trail system, is being funded through a $680,000 State grant and park development fees. Check the City’s website for the complete list of improvement projects.

Whether one is Jewish or not, humor is a wonderful release, for it holds true that it is impossible for us to laugh and be angry at the same time. Powerful antidote, laughter. I can only imagine the legendary Borscht Belt. It was long before my time. But books and videos afford me passage to discover the rich, cultural history, waiting for me at this magical place.

The past year has seen little change in the way most of our business and home clients use their PCs. The Internet continues to increase its dominance of PC usage patterns, many home and business users have no “offInternet” activities at all. “Off Internet” tasks are stand alone or LAN networked activities like word processing, spreadsheets, genealogy, bookkeeping and order processing. These activities get little or no benefit from high end PC configurations. Why not? Because even the fastest internet connection speeds are slow compared to the capabilities of even low end PCs, tablets and phones. Common activities like those mentioned above cannot run noticeably faster on high end PCs than they do on low end PCs. For most of us business and home users, buying a thousand dollar

The Lancer Dancers, Carlsbad High School's varsity dance team, earned top honors in the varsity hip hop division at the World School Cheer/Dance Competition, held January 3031 at the ESPN Wide World of Sports in Orlando, Florida.
The Lancer Dancers were also awarded the 1st Place world rankings awarded to the overall highest scoring team in the competition. This is an invitation-only, international competition were only the top five high school teams from the previous year are invited to compete. This year’s competition included teams from USA, Ecuador, Mexico, Colombia, Japan, and China.
Certainly the expensive, high end notebook and desktop PCs have their niche. “High task” activities like ultra gaming, solids modeling, animation and sound and video editing do benefit greatly from high-end components. We love to work with our customers to design and build these “Ferraris” but “high task” users represent less than 10% of the PC market. Long term price erosion coupled with increases in features, function and reliability brought notebook PCs and SSDs (solid state drive) into sharper focus for normal users (the other 90 %) last year. Both play a major role in our product plans for 2016.
can give any notebook or desk top PC. SSDs are up to ten times faster than HDDs (hard disk drives) but until recently they were prohibitively expensive. Two factors have converged to make SSDs a great choice as the “C” drive in a new PC or as a replacement for the HDD in an existing PC. First, SSD prices have dropped dramatically over the past two years and secondly, Internet based storage, back-up and streaming video have largely eliminated the need for massive on board hard drives. This year we’ve trimmed our standard “desktop workstation” products to just two AMD models (6 and 8 core CPUs) and three Intel models (i3, i5 and i7). We also build a low-end desktop, the “Petite,” that is way smaller
than a bread box. We will continue to handle the entire line of Acer notebooks. All our desktops and notebooks have the full range of RAM, hard drive, SSD and OS options (Win7 or 10). We continue to emphasize quality and reliability in our products by using ASUS motherboards, Western Digital and Samsung drives, boxed AMD and Intel CPUs (not OEM) and “lifetime” RAM. We have expanded our components warranty on new systems from one to two years as of the first of 2016. Next week we will discuss the status of Microsoft’s latest OS, Windows 10, the OS created for them, not you.
For many home users, notebooks have become a viable replacement for desktop PCs. We keep a demo in the store to illustrate how this works. We have an Acer notebook ($480) hooked up to a 24 inch monitor, wireless keyboard and mouse and stereo speakers. Add a printer and close the notebook’s lid and you have the comfort and convenience of a typical home desktop set-up. Going on a trip? Just pull the plugs. Now it’s a five pound notebook PC with all your “stuff.”
Having an SSD (solid state drive) as your “C” drive is the biggest performance boost you In addition to winning the prestigious international title, the Lancer Dancers competed in the Universal Dance Association Nationals, where they placed third in the nation in medium group jazz and third in medium group hip hop. "This is the first time in six years they have earned medals in both jazz and hip hop," said Booster Club President, Michelle Ginn. "It's an amazing accomplishment when you're competing against hundreds of the country's top public school and private performing arts school dance teams." The jazz and hip hop routines can be viewed online at www.lancerdancers.com and click on "videos". All teams had to compete in regional competitions in 2015-16 to qualify for UDA Nationals. The Lancer Dancers perform at school sporting events and competitions, and many community and charitable events each year. They have a long tradition of success in national competition, including 14 National Titles in jazz and hip hop.

Mystery Gal ID’d!
Well I am sure someone else has beaten me to the punch on this, however, I only now got a copy of the paper. This lovely lady is my dear friend Jeanne Bunch, former City Clerk, for the City of Escondido. I first met her in about 1961 when she was serving root beers at the former A & W Root Beer stand across from Escondido High School. It was located at the corner of Sheridan and Broadway! We then worked together for many years at the City. Best wishes Anderson

Tooth Preservation or Implant Placement
Long term tooth versus implant survival rates
Technological advances in the development of implants to replace "hopeless" or missing teeth along with a high predictability of survival rates has lead to the increasing popularity and clinical success of implants. This could result in the extraction of a person's natural teeth, that are salvageable, on the convenience rather than as a result of a comparative analysis between the survival of a natural tooth and its implant counterpart. Faced with the option of restoring a natural tooth versus extracting it and placing a dental implant, the doctor should take the following as well as others into consideration:
1. Is the tooth or area restorable? 2. Will it be strong? 3. What is the long term prognosis of the tooth vs. implant? 4. Compliance of the individual for maintaining the tooth or implant? 5. Does patient have systemic condition ie. diabetes, heart conditions, periodontal conditions. Also, smoking status. 6. Past experiences with patients tooth loss? 7. Long term survival of individual?
These are just a few factors affecting the patient. Financially, the patient should consider the cost of implants as well. They may not make a lot of difference with a single tooth, but if multiple sites are proposed, the cost factor can go up tremendously. If the tooth is restored in many cases, it can have a survivability that may equal, or even outlast the prognosis of an implant. Implants require good bone to survive, and if the bone is not adequate, additional bone must be provided to the site including bone grafts and/or sinus lifts, etc. This may also add to both the expense and time required to place an implant. After an implant fails, the next step is placing another implant.
Researchers report significantly lower success rates for reimplantation than for the original implant. With a tooth that started in the mouth by nature, if it is restorable, it frequently will last a long time without the amount of bone required by an implant.
There are many things to consider in deciding whether to place an implant versus restoring the tooth. As doctors we have patients come in every day with the idea of removing a tooth and placing an implant. On the other hand, we, as practitioners, have to resist the impulse to automatically go with the patient's wishes look-
ing more thoroughly at the overall results. If the bone is adequate and the natural tooth cannot be restored then the implant is chosen. However, in many cases, the patient is not adequately informed as to the survivability of the proposed implant and it is our responsibility to inform them of situations where the natural tooth may be the better choice in the long term. We do both procedures here at San Marcos Dental Center, but we thoroughly evaluate both options before suggesting a solution. Call us at 760 7344311!
