Volume 47 - No. 07

by Friedrich Gomez

It was August of 2012 when I first met the legendary KFMB TV-8 newsman and local celebrity, Larry Himmel, while he was on assignment here in North San Diego County covering another story I had just written, this time on San Marcos Walmart greeter, Carl Johnston aka “Mr. Marvelous.” In my storyline I had created the nickname “Mr. Marvelous” and sent Himmel a copy of the story after it was published. Himmel read it, liked it, and brought his TV-8 News camera crew inside the Walmart store premises to film his segment for later broadcast that same evening. (Himmel’s news segment, titled “The Greeter with Meter” can still be viewed online today.)

Larry Himmel was a man I long admired. Less than thirty seconds into our conversation at Walmart, Himmel leaned in and asked me point blank: “Hey Friedrich, whatever happened to the Toothpick Man of Escondido – how’s he

doing?”

Himmel was referring to a cover story I had written for THE PAPER (August 18, 2011 issue). I had sent him a copy of THE PAPER about “The Toothpick Man of Escondido” and Himmel was so moved by the pathos and gut-wrenching storyline that he did a follow-up newscast on him (which can, also, still be viewed online today). The deepest impression I came away with after meeting my longtime San Diego idol, Larry Himmel, is that he genuinely cared about the people he filmed. These people were never just another job assignment for him. He persisted in wanting to know their whereabouts and cared deeply on how they were doing. He had already filmed a segment on “The Toothpick Man of Escondido,” but yet, he still wanted to be caught-up on him. The Toothpick Man storyline on tragedy and redemption moved him deeply and he chose not to

forget him. And he didn’t.

Less than two years and two months after he asked me to bring him up-todate on the status of Escondido’s Toothpick Man, Larry Himmel would pass away. I cried deeply. You didn’t have to meet Larry Himmel to love him. That’s the extraordinary power he seemed to possess – to connect with people on a most profound, grassroots level and to continually care about them. He told me: “You’re my wingman, Friedrich – you write it and I’ll film it.” Sadly, I had only written two stories which he followed-up with a newscast. I had planned to write more and to continue to send him hardcopies. It never happened.

I know most of our readership today missed the original story of Escondido’s Toothpick Man. And for the very few who may have read it back in 2011, this is a new, updated report which brings

you to this current time and year, 2017.

There were many unresolved issues and questions back then when the story first broke in THE PAPER. Today, with the passage of time, those unanswered questions can now be answered as we get current on catching-up with the celebrated Toothpick Man in 2017. Those previously unanswered questions which Larry Himmel yearned to know – are now answered here. So, this one is for you, dear friend, Larry Himmel, who always deeply cared for his fellow human beings. Herewith is the entire story, now brought to a closure.

And as Glinda the Good Witch says in “The Wizard of Oz,” – “It’s always best to start at the beginning.”

I had heard sporadic rumors of a legendary man who constructed unbelievable three dimensional sculptures out of simple toothpicks and glue. A rare indi-

vidual who created what one Midwestern newspaper eloquently described as “Dimensional beauty of the sculptures.”

Here and there, I would hear of this most unusual artist who occasionally occupied the topic of casual conversation over breakfast at Charlie’s restaurant in Escondido, or sometimes over a tall iced tea at one of the fashionable bistros on Grand Avenue. However, casual conversations tend to buttress urban legend and muddle fact with fiction. Especially if one is imbibing on colorful margaritas on a warm summer’s day. How much of what I heard was true? There were even claims that this socalled Toothpick Man even resided right here in San Diego County, some say in Escondido! Enough was enough. Like Big Foot, Area 51, and Little Green Men, I decided to lay this mystery aside. Until one day. It happened.

As a hospital volunteer I often make my way to visit various patients for no other purpose than to just be a good listener and, hopefully, to be an antidote to their loneliness. Stepping into a hospital room on the ninth floor at Escondido’s Palomar Hospital, I quickly introduced myself and came face-to-face with Frank Sanchez, a feisty and garrulous uproot from Bryan, Ohio. It was a small world after all, for I had just found the celebrated Toothpick Man! I describe him as feisty in the positive sense: spirited and a headstrong optimist. A man with a gift for gab who

speeds along with sentences which clearly paint images and pathos with, ostensibly, no effort.

Sanchez constructs dazzling sculptures out of individual toothpicks – countless thousands of toothpicks – that have been shaped, collectively, into intricate geodesic designs, inter-connecting triangles and breathtaking pyramids. His artwork ranges the gamut from free-form designs to replicating elaborate corporate logos (such as the Chevrolet logo design, and the logo for the California Center for the Arts, Escondido). But it doesn’t just stop on the aesthetic level. These exquisite designs have had a rather shocking and unexpected impact. All positive. For example, his toothpick sculptures have proven to be so enchanting and captivating that the intricate shapings have been known to calm down hyperactive children. Upon viewing these fantastic toothpick exhibits, many hyperactive kids have stared in amazement for long periods of time, sometimes sitting and lying quietly around Sanchez’s artwork, peering calmly through the geometric designs. Great therapy, wouldn’t you say? And certainly a most exhilarating departure from hyperactive medication.

Frank Sanchez does not see toothpicks as the average person does. He sees them as dormant works of art. There is a celebrated story of Michelangelo that seems to parallel Sanchez’s life. When he was young and poor, Michelangelo was shocked to find that local artisans were discarding a piece of marble that was said to be flawed and worthless. As the story goes, Michelangelo begged for them to give him the so-called worthless marble. He was laughed at by the more experienced artisans who sportingly asked him why he should want such a ruined piece of stone. The young

apprentice, Michelangelo, replied from the inner recesses of his heart: “Because, inside that stone lives an angel that begs to be released.” And as history has it, one of the greatest treasures in all of art was sculpted from that salvaged piece of ‘rubble.’ From the hands of Michelangelo emerged the priceless statue “David,” the nonpareil masterpiece that is now recognized as one of the most famous sculptures in world history.

Likewise, Frank Sanchez does not merely see individual toothpicks before him. Rather, he sees untapped possibilities for exquisite designs and he succeeds in reinventing the simple and common pieces of tiny sticks into moments of wonder, such as in his Biblical “Burning Bush” creation, a gargantuan undertaking that took over 40,000 individual toothpicks and seven years to foresee and complete into its present form. Appropriately, Sanchez added orange angel’s hair to replicate the fire of his Burning Bush design. It has been called “extraordinary.” Other designs are of elegant roses, various triangles, and a gigantic threedimensional American flag. The flag alone required 6,200 toothpicks and over two months of diligent labor. But Sanchez’s life was not always as elegant and beautiful as his exquisitelycrafted works of art. Quite the contrary, his life was a living hell. His life had a lot of Hamlet in it, i.e. he was a greatly conflicted and tormented human being. Frank Sanchez was born in 1951 in the small rural town of Bryan, Ohio, which today still has only one zip code and one telephone area code. As a 16-year-old student at Bryan High School, he salvaged an abandoned toothpick sculpture out of the trash bin. His impatient friend and classmate in art class tried unsuccessfully to build a pyramid out of

the delicate toothpicks but soon gave up in exasperation. The catch-phrase, “One person’s trash is another person’s treasure,” came to life for Sanchez that day. By semester’s end, Sanchez had successfully completed his first noteworthy triumph: a 36-inch high pyramid constructed out of over 5,000 individual toothpicks. But the dark side of life seduced him and in the years to come, Sanchez became a lost soul, eaten up by booze and illegal drugs. “I continued it (toothpick sculptures) for about five years or so, but I found I couldn’t do toothpick art anymore due to crystal and cocaine – my hands would shake,” Sanchez told me. Sanchez always held down a steady job but he regulated his work time with hitting the bars at night, or doing drugs. The years took their toll. After two failed marriages and a life he felt too painful to want to salvage, Frank Sanchez yearned for death rather than to continue living. He wanted to just end all the pain and the suffering and unspeakable heartache. His plan was to commit suicide.

According to the World Health Organization, over one million people die by suicide every year. The National Safety Council rates suicide as the sixth leading cause of death in the United States. It is a leading cause of death among teenagers and adults under the age of 35. And there are an estimated 10 to 20 million non-fatal attempted suicides every year, worldwide. Frank Sanchez was about to fit into those grisly statistics. With the misery of lost marital love, and mindless binges on alcohol and various illegal drugs, Sanchez’s life on the fast

lane had finally hit a speed bump – the drugs and alcohol and botched marriages had finally sucked out his will to live.

Sanchez’s attempted suicide was in 1993 at the age of 42. Looking back on it, Sanchez told me through saddened eyes that after 22 years of living in selfimposed hell, he tried to overdose on what he called, “An eight-ball of crystal. Enough to kill a cow!” Looking across from me, Sanchez’s face reveals the anguish of that day. “After I snorted that huge amount of crystal, my heart began racing. My mind and heart were both going at the speed of sound, so I had to lie down in bed. I couldn’t do anything else.” The last fleeting thought in his mind before losing consciousness, was his desire for the cold embrace of death. But, for reasons he did not comprehend, his heavily-drugged body continued to live. But, barely. Life’s cruelties seemed without end – even his planned suicide was a dismal failure. As Sanchez told me, “It seemed that I could never do anything right.”

For two straight days, his motionless body remained unconscious on his bed. “There was nobody who came to check on me,” he said in words that seemed filled with sadness. Miraculously, his dying body refused death. Instead, he slowly regained consciousness as tiny slivers of sunlight found their way back into the pupils of his dying eyes. “I woke up in my own urine and vomit, because the body just lets everything go,” he explained. His slowly regained consciousness confirmed to him that he was still back in his livinghell existence, here on planet Earth. But, this time, he had finally touched bottom. With 48 hours without food or

drink, his poisoned body lay weak and motionless. He was silently all alone. Broken in spirit. Slowly, in his own frail, weakened voice, he whispered words he had never before uttered in his life: “God, please forgive me.”

The ‘real fight’ was now about to begin. Frank Sanchez knew that he now had to ‘walk the talk.’ Merely asking for forgiveness wasn’t going to cut the mustard. Erasing a twenty-plus-year drug and alcohol addiction would not be easy. Sanchez told me that he needed something else to replace his taste for alcohol and drugs. He strongly feels that ‘something else’ proved to be his toothpick sculpturing that he first discovered as a high school sophomore, in Bryan, Ohio, three time zones away from his current Escondido motel room. Once again, Frank Sanchez began building beautiful designs out of toothpicks. And he did it with a steady hand. And a sober mind. Like the mythical phoenix, his life arose from the ashes that day in 1993. He was now clean and sober. His life had been to hell and back.

The resemblance of delicate toothpicks to Frank Sanchez’s delicate balance between life and death is poignant. By themselves, the small frail toothpicks are of no great consequence. But when glued together they begin to resemble a new framework; a new network of inner strength and design – much in the same way that Sanchez was re-building his own life, piece by piece, like his very own toothpick sculptures.

For Sanchez, there is a purpose for everything in life. The good, as well as the bad, serve their respective purpose and there is an old saying that we benefit from both experiences in life. The claim being that there is room in the world for

both the optimist and the pessimist. The optimist, it is said, invents the airplane. The pessimist -- the parachute. Once a pessimist, Sanchez today remains the resolute optimist. He is the builder of things; the creator of beauty, with the patience of Job. He does not think negative things.

Today, in 2017, at age 65, Frank Sanchez has been ‘clean’ for over 23 years. And he says he owes it all to God. Sanchez makes no pretense. He is not without life’s trials. He remained estranged from his son, David, and daughter, Krystal, as well as their mother. All blamed him for the debacle of marriage and the pain which went along with it. Many refuse to see his changed life – the sobriety and abstinence from drugs. Still, today, there is residual damage.

Sanchez told me he remembers not receiving any Father’s Day cards all those years, from his children. “But when I looked on Facebook, I saw that they wished their stepfather a Happy Father’s Day,” he told me, barely above a whisper. However, Frank harbors no anger or angst at this happening. He only acknowledges what is. He still remembers his kids with money and cards without fail. And he hopes for reconciliation someday. “My door is always open,” he says, with some tone of optimism.

Sanchez fondly recalls the days when he was closer to his kids. “First off, as a child, my son loved visiting me and would cry when my ex-wife would come to pick him up. He didn’t want to leave his daddy.”

He remembers the day his 3-year-old son, David, looked up at him and said, “Daddy, I wanna be just like you.” Slowly, with their maturity, his kids pulled away with the telling of bygone years and the seduction of their own, sometimes,

wayward and challenging lives.

Today, if you were to encounter Frank Sanchez – where he dwells in modest surroundings at his Escondido motel room where he has lived these past 22 years – you will see his toothpick sculptures everywhere: hanging from his ceiling, on the walls, on the table tops, even on his window sill, in plain view for those who may pass by or drop in for a visit. Everyone is welcomed. In fact, Sanchez has a motel guest book that contains the names of hundreds of individuals who have stopped by to see the master at work. The book has names of people from all over the United States, Canada, Israel, Japan and, well, the world at large. He has kept this guest book since 1999. I have a feeling that his reputation will continue to grow, on a grassroots level, toothpick by toothpick.

It is not enough that his toothpick creations take one’s breath away; he sometimes adds flourishes such as coating them with fluorescent paint which take on new dynamics when he displays them under black lighting. Or he may paint the backside of his sculptures with a different color than the front so that when they are displayed in front of a mirror, the reflected image from the backside seems to take on an almost magical quality. It is touching to see him sculpt with these delicate pieces of wood, reminiscent of Geppetto of Pinocchio fantasy, who creates a boy out of wood and yearns for it to become a living son. Much as Frank yearns to have his children back with him, to visit often, and

The Paper • Page 4 • February 16, 2017 Fatal Traffic Collision - Escondido

On Wednesday, February 8, at about 10:21 PM officers from the Escondido Police Department were dispatched to the area of Vermont Avenue and Juniper Street regarding a serious injury collision. EPD officers and Escondido Fire paramedics arrived on scene minutes later and determined a vehicle had struck a pedestrian. Fire personnel attempted life saving measures although the pedestrian died at the scene.

Based on witness statements and physical evidence at the scene it appears an 18 year old male was driving west on Vermont Avenue from Juniper Street in a 2004 BMW 325i. His vehicle struck an elderly female pedestrian in the roadway. The female was not carrying identification and has not been identified at this point. The male driver of the BMW was not injured and alcohol or drug impairment is not a factor.

The traffic investigation is ongoing and is being conducted by Officer Mike Nelson of the Traffic Division. We are seeking the public’s help with anyone who may have witnessed the accident or can help identify the elderly female pedestrian.

To report any suspicious activities in your neighborhood, you may contact the Police Department directly, or you may make an unidentified call on our Anonymous Tip Line at 760-743-TIPS (8477) or via our Web site at police.escondido.org.

U.S. Representative Duncan Hunter announced that for Fiscal Year 2018, he will not submit any federal appropriations requests on behalf of states, cities, universities or other entities that have an ordinance, policy or practice in place that undermines the enforcement of federal immigration laws.

“Sanctuaries that defy federal immigration laws should be held accountable,” said Representative Hunter. “If a state or local entity prefers to violate the law and not cooperate on federal immigration matters, this should be an immediate disqualifier for federal funding.

Members of Congress share a responsibility to ensure jurisdictions and entities within their Congressional Districts are abiding by the law. The submission of a federal funding request for sanctuaries is irresponsible and rewards disregard for the law—and I can’t support that. It’s my hope that many of my colleagues will take this same approach when considering funding requests for the next fiscal year.”

Insurance Commissioner Dave Jones won another critical legal victory, this one against Mercury Insurance Company and a coalition of insurance industry groups in the California Court of Appeal Friday.

Mercury and other insurers filed suit against Commissioner Jones to challenge his authority to protect consumers from having to pay millions for an insurance company's "institutional" or "brand" advertising expenses. The insurers also argued the commissioner's order reducing Mercury's homeowners' insurance rates by 5.4 percent, saving consumers $11,745,102, was unconstitutional.

Citizen Shows Appreciation for Escondido Police

He's one of 25 dogs that we got last week after they were rescued from a puppy mill in the Midwest. When they change breeds or the breeder dogs have outlived their usefulness, they sell off as many as possible then dispose of the excess inventory.

Folks who know me know my weaknesses: Puppies, of all ages, and little girls, age 5 to 5.5 years of age (particularly if they happen to be my granddaughter).

The Escondido Police Department would like to express their gratitude to this citizen, as well as the generous donors who made the secret Santa program possible. “I am amazed how our community continues to come together with acts of kindness for our fellow residents and police officers,” said Chief Craig Carter.

Last Congress, Hunter’s legislation— H.R. 3009, the Enforce the Law for Sanctuary Cities Act—was passed by the House on July 23, 2015, by a vote of 241-179. More recently, Hunter introduced the No Funding for Sanctuary Campuses Act, which denies Title IV funding to sanctuary campuses.

Here's Fairlane for next week.

Man About Town

Miller,For your random act of kindness, $100 to a woman in need in December, these are for you and your co-workers.”

The California Court of Appeal rejected the insurers' challenge and ruled in favor of Commissioner Jones on both issues. This is the third of three major legal victories won recently by Commissioner Jones, in which courts affirmed his right to protect consumers.

I liked the old paths, when Moms were at home. Dads were at work. Brothers went into the army. And sisters got married BEFORE having children! Crime did not pay; Hard work did; And people knew the difference. Moms could cook; Dads would work; Children would behave.

Husbands were loving; Wives were supportive; And children were polite.

Women wore the jewelry; And Men wore the pants.

Women looked like ladies; Men looked like gentlemen; And children looked decent. People loved the truth, And hated a lie.

They came to church to get IN, Not to get OUT! Hymns sounded Godly; Sermons sounded helpful; Rejoicing sounded normal; And crying sounded sincere. Cursing was wicked; Drugs were for illness.

The flag was honored; America was beautiful;

And God was welcome!

We read the Bible in public; Prayed in school; And preached from house to house.

To be called an American was worth dying for; To be called an American was worth living for; To be called a traitor was a shame! ••••• Research and writing: It’s the bane of all writers, editors and publishers.

We are currently working on a big story that will be breaking within the next several weeks . . . dealing with the Casinos, the gaming industry, and the tremendous amount of money involved - the type of money that could well run a third world nation. Never dreamed that Casinos generated that much revenue or that much profit.

Those enrolled tribe members from the various tribes that own and operate casinos also share in the net profit. And they make enough to live very comfortably. Stay tuned.

Toothpick Man Cont. from Page 3

people to him so that he might help those in need, “As a ‘toothpick artist’ in his spare time, his window is lit up with his art work, drawing curious onlookers who find in Frank one who gives of himself, daily, to cheer up troubled hearts and also to fill up hungry stomachs,” says Pastor Turner.

celebrate renewed life with their daddy. Often Sanchez leaves his motel room open on purpose so that passersby may glimpse his handiwork in progress. Or perhaps his kids will someday walk through that same open door.

Chevrolets Motor Division sent Sanchez a letter giving kudos to the Toothpick Man: “You obviously have a very unique and creative talent. This is the first time we have seen the famous Chevrolet bow tie emblem recreated in this fashion.”

Sanchez makes time away from his sculptures to involve himself with a variety of humanitarian pursuits, such as performing volunteer work at various hospitals, retirement homes and other venues where he feeds the needy and elderly. And though he is a man of modest means, he shares his personal food – sometimes having barbecues – for those who live about him; some who are lonely, hungry, cold, or even homeless. In 2010, Sanchez was nominated by Pastor Mark Turner of the Calvary Chapel of Escondido to be recognized by the Escondido City Council Awards Committee for his relentless work in tending to the needs of the poor, the sick, and the dying. Turner addressed Sanchez’ achievements thusly: “It has been my vision and my privilege for over 18 years to help organize and oversee weekly church services and outreaches to 8 different nursing homes, adult care facilities and Alzheimer’s homes here in our community. Our goal has been to bring the word of God to some of the widows, orphans and often forgotten residents of our community who live in the over 100 care facilities that exist in Escondido. But for the past 14 years, one volunteer from our church has stood above the rest and that person is: Frank Sanchez.”

The toothpick is known to predate modern human beings. Neanderthal skulls clearly reveal that their teeth were picked with a tool. Today, the wooden variety is known throughout the world. Creating structures out of toothpicks have been around a long, long time. And famous toothpick artists, such as New York’s Steven J. Blackman, and California’s Sonoma County resident, Scott Weaver, create simply amazing toothpick sculptures, as well. However, few have traveled the road to hell and back as Escondido’s very own Frank Sanchez. And none have given so much of themselves to help the downtrodden, the sick, the poor, the lonely, the homeless, the elderly, the hungry, and the dying – as Frank Sanchez has. On this score, alone, he has few equals. As of 2017, the Toothpick Man has been in-and-out of Escondido’s Palomar Medical Center for a total of 16 various operations to rectify hip-related problems. Just three short years ago he slowly awoke from another surgery and as his mind slowly began to clear and his bespectacled eyes adjusted to normal sight he saw a vision that he was most unprepared for; a vision that would forever change his life. In his hospital room sat his 26-year-old estranged daughter, Krystal. No greater medicine

Mighty powerful words for one individual who himself lives on a marginal income. The nomination letter for “Charity Award” acknowledges Frank’s prowess with toothpicks and how he cleverly uses his toothpick talent to draw

could have been prescribed that day for Frank Sanchez. What he had long hoped for, dreamed, and prayed for, had finally become sudden reality. Into his opened arms, his daughter gently placed his one-month-old granddaughter, Julia, for Grandpa Sanchez to hold for the very first time. In time, he would also reconnect with his long-lost son, David, now 28 years old. Sanchez would become a grandfather, multiple-times over and he would know each and every one of his grandchildren.

Swami’s Café or O’Sullivan’s Irish Pub, both off Grand Avenue in downtown Escondido, and the topic of the legendary Toothpick Man comes up – well, I’ll have plenty to say.

For those of you who wish to connect with The Toothpick Man can do so at: frankalfred@gmail.com Tell him, Friedrich from lyle e. davis’ THE PAPER sent you. Trust me, he’ll be happy to hear from you!

Perhaps by accident, perhaps by the hand of providence, I came upon Frank Sanchez one day in Escondido. It was supposed to be a routine visit to a convalescing patient at Palomar Hospital and Medical Center. Instead, I found an extraordinary man, on an extraordinary journey in life. A man driven by his new life. His second chance at life since his attempted suicide. It is the height of irony that as a young boy, thousands of miles away from his present Escondido residence, he salvaged an uncompleted work of art from a trash can, only to have his own life salvaged – years later – from the dustbin of life. That salvaged collection of broken toothpicks he dug out of the trash receptacle that day was an uncompleted work of art. Just like Frank Sanchez’s life. By not dying that day, back in 1993, Frank has made a big difference in the world around him. He has made it a better place to live. And he has saved and salvaged many lives, besides his own. And for all of that, he is reminiscent of Frank Capra’s movie, “It’s A Wonderful Life.” Except, Frank Sanchez’s life is the real deal.

Museum Debuts New Thoroughbred Exhibit - An exhibition of famous thoroughbreds with a local connection is being presented at the Valley Center History Museum in a new expanded display. The show, first presented in 2010, is one of the museum's most popular and most-requested exhibits. Featured are artifacts, mementos and photos of nine horses, including descendants of such legendary thoroughbreds as Seabiscuit, Secretariat and Seattle Slew. Honors won by Valley Center horses include Horse of the Year, U.S. National Championship Stallion, and a listing among the Top 10 Stallions in the nation. One thoroughbred was a Preakness Stakes Winner while another won four national championships and sired 1,300 purebred offspring. Two have celebrity connections: Blanco, an Andalusian, appeared as "Shadowfax" in the motion picture trilogy "Lord of the Rings" while Triplicate was a winner for actor-dancer Fred Astaire who had a ranch on Valley Center Road. An original painting of Lady's Secret, a descendant of Secretariat, is by a famed equestrian artist whose works hang in the White House and at Buckingham Palace.

Snow Chief stood at Valley Creek Farm, a thoroughbred breeding operation on Cool Valley Road. During his career, he won the 1986 Preakness Stakes, sired 21 stakes horses, and earned $3.4 million for his owners. A favorite of visitors from a past exhibition, SeaOrbit, has returned with new memorabilia from the days when he lived on Lake Wohlford Road. SeaOrbit, often called "baby biscuit", was the only progeny of

Supporting the Life Sciences

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. Ensuring that California maintains its pivotal role as a center for life sciences research is a vital part of these efforts.

Continuing the medical advances that are improving healthcare and quality of life throughout the world is good policy. It has also been very good for the state’s economy. California is a center for the life science industry, and San Diego County with 9 percent of the state’s population employs 13 percent of the state’s life science workers. The San Diego region ranks fourth in the nation after Boston, North Carolina’s Raleigh-Durham region, and the San Francisco Bay Area as a center for the life sciences. And with San Diego’s life science salaries averaging

over $138,000 in 2015, the industry is a vital contributor to our local economy.

Since I joined the Legislature, I have authored a number of bills dealing with chronic diseases, including bills that would heighten public awareness of hepatitis, expedite the appeals process for newly developed epilepsy drugs and Aids/HIV and require that Medi-Cal benefits cover the cost of drugs prescribed for seriously ill individuals.

As a result, I was honored to receive the 2015 ‘Life Sciences Champion Award’ from the California Life Sciences Association and 'Legislator of the Year' from the CA Chronic Care Coalition. Bringing lifesaving innovations to patients and improving access, cost efficiencies and patient outcomes is critical. I look forward to continuing to do my small part to support the life sciences and to improve healthcare for all Californians.

Historically Speaking by Tom Morrow

The Nation’s Largest Military Base More Popular Than It’s Namesake

For the past 75 years, the name “Pendleton” has become legendary because of the nation’s largest military base hugging the northern city limits of Oceanside, Calif. Truth be known, most people haven’t a clue as to who was “Pendleton.”

The man was Marine Maj. Gen. Joseph H. Pendleton. He was born before the Civil War and who died in 1924 – between World War I and World War II. General Pendleton had a long career of major and minor Marine Corps engagements and commands throughout the U.S., as well as Cuba, the Philippines, the Dominican Republic and other various top military assignments and commands in the U.S. During his 40-year career, Pendleton probably was one of the most traveled and assigned Marines in the history of the service. Nothing of note that would go down in the history books, but his most lasting legacy is having his name branded on a base where thousands of young Marines trained and passed through on their way to the battlefields in the South Pacific, Korea, Vietnam, Kuwait, Iraq, and Afghanistan. For many Marines, leaving the gates of Pendleton was the last they ever saw of America. Joseph Henry Pendleton was born on June 2, 1860, in Rochester, Pa. He was appointed to the United States Naval Academy in 1878.

His first duty was performed at the Marine Barracks, Brooklyn Navy Yard where he served from Aug. 31, 1884, to Feb. 7, 1885. After a variety of assignments, in 1904, then a Major, Pendleton reported to Mare Island in the Bay area, On May 28, 1904, he joined the First Brigade of Marines in the Philippines. From there he assumed command of the

Marines stationed on Guam. Later he was moved on to various overseas assignments until being placed in command of the 4th Regiment on North Island in San Diego. In 1916, he would take command of the Marine Barracks in San Diego. Later that year he was promoted to brigadier general and was placed in command of all Naval forces during the occupation of the Dominican Republic in the Caribbean. The Navy Cross, the highest honor the Navy can award, was presented to Brigadier General Pendleton for "exceptionally meritorious service as Commanding Officer of the Second Provisional Brigade of Marines in support of the Government of Santo Domingo (Dominican Republic).” From November 11, 1918, to September 25, 1919, Brigadier General Pendleton commanded the Marine Barracks at Parris Island, S. C., and on October 1, 1919, joined the Second Advanced Base Force at San Diego, as its Commanding General.

From Oct. 1, to Nov. 7, 1921, General Pendleton was in command of the Department of the Pacific at San Francisco. Upon the establishment of the 5th Brigade of Marines on Oct. 4, 1921, he was assigned as the Commanding Officer. In addition to these duties he was assigned the additional duty as Commanding General, Department of the Pacific, in the absence of General Barnett, from May 13, 1922, to Sept. 2, 1922. Pendleton was promoted to major general on Dec. 10, 1923. From February 9, to March 29, 1924, General Pendleton was on duty inspecting Marine Corps stations and organizations in Central America and West Indies. After this inspection trip, he was on a short tour of duty at Headquarters Marine Corps and on May 12, 1924, he resumed duties at San Diego, as Commanding Officer of the Fifth Brigade Marines.

On June 2, 1924, at the age of 64, Pendleton retired after 40 years of service in the Marine Corps. He settled in Coronado, Calif., and served as Mayor from 1928 to 1930. He died on Feb. 4, 1942, at his home at age 81.

Behavior and Training Tips for New Puppies – Have a new puppy in your home? Here are five training tips from the Community Training Coordinator Shauna Romero, CPDT-Ka, of the San Diego Humane Society, to help you get off to the right start. 1. Identify the House Rules: Have everyone in your home discuss and agree on which behaviors are acceptable or unacceptable. Write them down and post them; make sure the rules are followed. Consistency is key in successfully training your puppy. 2. Treats, Treats, Treats: Always reward your puppy for performing a desired behavior such as waiting at the door, sitting, not jumping up, etc. Reward with lots of praise, petting and treats, consistently; encourages your puppy to behave positively. 3. Ignore Unwanted Behaviors: If your puppy behaves in a manner that is inappropriate, move away and ignore the behavior. Once your puppy has stopped the unwanted behavior, shower your puppy with lots of attention and praise. 4. Crate Training: Crate training is extremely useful in successful house training as well as teaching your puppy to settle on his own. 5. Exchange Game: The world is an exciting new place for your puppy. Puppies use their mouths to explore new environments. If your puppy is chewing on an inappropriate item, exchange the item for a toy or chewy. Remember to praise your puppy for chewing a new item. Puppies love to chew and

will chew three to five hours a day, so it’s incredibly important to leave appropriate items around the house for them to pick up and chew.

Upcoming training classes and workshops: Puppy Play Groups at San Diego Humane Society Campus; Sunday, February 19 and February 26, at 10:15am. Puppy Play Group is a great opportunity for your puppy to learn social skills with other puppies in a safe and supervised environment. Trainers narrate play and match puppies who are compatible playmates, ensuring puppies are having positive experiences. Periods of play alternate with breaks, where you will have time to ask the professional trainer any questions you have about puppy training. Cost is $20. Then check out additional programs for training and socialization skills, etc. The San Diego Campus is at 55900 Gaines Street, San Diego, 92110; 619.299.7012, or visit the website at sdhumane.org.

Library’s Holiday Food for Fines Benefits Locals in Need – The Escondido Public Library’s annual Holiday Food for Fines program once again proved to be a win-win for those involved. This popular program provided Library patrons the opportunity to clear up to $20 in fines from their account through food donations. The collection drive ran from November 28 through December 31, 2016, and the Library accumulated 79 crates of food weighing 2,370 pounds; an increase of more than 870 pounds over the 2015 program. Proceeds from the drive were donated to Interfaith Community Services in Escondido which distributed the food to families in need throughout the North County area (www.interfaithservices.org/). Escondido Public Library’s Customer Services Supervisor Linda Weber remarked, “The outpouring of generosity from our patrons was incredible this year. Many patrons brought in more food than needed to clear their fines. One patron in particular, who did not have outstanding fines, donated $90 worth of items. She asked Library staff to pay it forward by applying the credits to the accounts of other patrons

The Pastor Says . . .

Pastor Sam Brumit Mission 316 San Marcos, CA. Disagreeing…agreeably

In my lifetime, I can’t remember a time when I’ve seen more disagreement. It’s everywhere. And it cuts deep. It’s affecting long term friendships. Dividing families. Seems like nobody’s immune to it. “Us and them” is pretty standard.

I was raised to “disagree agreeably” and to remember that being mean or bullying others was not an option. I was taught that swearing didn’t make my verbal argument any stronger. Speaking the truth ‘in love” is a biblical mandate and one of the fruits of the spirit is “self control.” Speaking the “truth in love”

Chuckles Cont. on Page 11

includes truth and love. After all, there are some things that require speaking truth without reservation. Just do it with the love of God as a backdrop. Remember “knowledge puff up, but love edifies (builds up).” And with that in mind, we should be in the marketplace, proclaiming what is godly and good without hesitation. I speak each Sunday to all kinds of people. Some believers, some not. Some mature in their faith and some not so much. Some younger and some wellseasoned. I want each of them to know Jesus and His heart; His kingdom. I share truth and attempt to do so in a manner that is becoming of Christ. I love them all. So… let’s disagree. It’s okay and actually healthy. Let’s also be knowledgably humble and firmly gentle. As the great Apostle Paul put it… “Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace.”(Ephesians 4:2-3). After all, our Lord said we are to be “wise as serpents and gentle as doves.”

skills either in your home or wherever you choose to take him while helping him adjust to life in our country. Ahmed will not wish to interact with you or your daughters except sexually, since he views females as a form of property, thereby having no rights, including refusal of his sexual demands. This is a particularly sensitive subject for him.

You also should know that he has shown violent tendencies around women who fail to comply with the dress code that he will recommend as more appropriate attire. I'm sure you will come to enjoy the anonymity offered by the burka over time. Just remember that it is all part of 'respecting his culture and religious beliefs' as described in your letter. You take good care of Ahmed and remember that we will try to have a counsellor available to help you over any difficulties you encounter while Ahmed is adjusting to Canadian culture.

Thanks again for your concern. We truly appreciate it when folks like you keep us informed of the proper way to do our job and care for our fellow man. Good luck and God bless you. Cordially, Gordon O'Connor Minister of National Defense

Today’s PC, How we got here. Part II

By 2006 growth in new PC sales had slowed because users were happy with the nearly six year old XP OS (operating system). The industry pressured Microsoft to release a new OS to rekindle sales but Microsoft’s premature release of the unfinished Vista OS in early 2007 had the opposite effect. Vista was buggy, slow and filled with features users didn’t want, so the majority of users chose to stay with XP. By late 2009 Microsoft had reworked, debugged and cleaned up the ill fated Vista and morphed it into Windows7. Windows 7 was the end result of nearly nine years of work by Microsoft developers. It was an excellent OS and an immediate success. By 2011 PC sales were at an all time high and everyone was happy, everyone except Microsoft that is.

Microsoft was starting to feel uneasy about its future. Microsoft Windows, running 90% of the World’s PCs, was a splendid cash cow but Microsoft could see PC sales soon beginning a long term decline. Mobile devices (smart phones and tablets) were replacing PCs and the market for PCs was becoming saturated. Even inexpensive PCs were far faster and more capable than the needs of most users. The life expectancy of new PCs had grown to six or seven years stretching out the replacement cycles. Conversely mobile device sales were growing at a rate of twenty to thirty percent each year and replacement cycles were less than three years. Microsoft was a distant third in mobile device OS with only 3% of the market behind Google’s Android (80%) and Apples iOS (17%). Microsoft was in desperate need of a strategy to muscle their way into the growing mobile market.

knew home users wouldn’t like Windows 8 but they also knew that Windows users had nowhere to turn. When Windows 8 hit the stores, consumers simply stayed away. In 2012 PC sales actually dropped from the previous year for the first time in the thirty year history of PCs.

The Windows 8 /8.1 gamble was a disaster for Microsoft. By mid 2015, after three years, Win8/8.1 had captured only 18% of the PC OS market. Win7 and XP still ran 75% of Windows PCs. During the three years of Win8/8.1, Microsoft’s share of mobile OS actually shrunk from 3% to around 1%. In August 2015, with great fanfare Microsoft basically rereleased an updated Windows7. To save face they called it Windows 10 and offered it as a free “upgrade” to

Microsoft reasoned that if they could force all their PC users to use an OS that had a “user interface” that looked and worked like the “touch screen user interface” on their Windows smart phones and tablets, then all those PC users would naturally gravitate toward Windows smart phones and tablets thereby increasing Microsoft’s share in the mobile device business. Microsoft introduced Windows 8 with a “touchscreen” style “user interface” in 2012 and cut off the retail sale of Windows 7 Home (business users refused to accept Windows 8 and were allowed to keep buying Windows 7 Professional).

Today there are still twice as many PCs running Win7 as there are Win10. For most home and business users, nearly any PC built since 2010 is as functional or can easily be upgraded to be as functional as any new PC. Win 7 is still the most popular OS with business and many home users even though Win10 is still a free option on any new or used PC.

Your Money

choose. You will continue to live in your home, retain ownership and will not be required to make any monthly mortgage payments during the loan period. Instead of repaying the loan monthly, the loan balance is repaid when all borrowers have left the home. The amount you receive is based on current interest rates, the age of the youngest borrower and your appraised home value. Common uses of a reverse mortgage

Laura Strickler Reverse Mortgage Expert The Basics of a Reverse Mortgage What is a HECM Reverse Mortgage?

Home Equity Conversion Mortgages (HECMs), also known as reverse mortgage loans, help Americans age 62 and older convert a portion of their home equity into tax-free money. They are insured by the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) and allow seniors to age in place and achieve retirement security. How does it work?

A reverse mortgage loan allows you to turn some of the equity in your home into cash to improve your lifestyle in whatever way you

The proceeds from a reverse mortgage can be used for almost anything: •Pay off an existing mortgage and eliminate monthly mortgage payments. •Make retirement savings last longer. •Use a “standby” HECM reverse mortgage growing line of credit to preserve investment accounts during market downturns or build a safety net for unplanned emergencies, home repairs and healthcare expenses. •Supplement your retirement income with monthly advances. •Use a HECM for Purchase loan to buy a home that better fits your needs. •Support aging in place expenses like caregiving and home modifications. Recent HECM program changes to protect you:

Recent HECM program guidelines

were put in place by HUD to protect borrowers and further strengthen the HECM reverse mortgage loan program. • Financial Assessment: Recent HECM program changes to protect you will require a more thorough evaluation of a borrower’s ability to meet the obligations of his/her HECM reverse mortgage loan. • Non-borrowing Spouse: New loan amounts are available to borrowers with a non-borrowing spouse under the age of 62. New rules also allow the eligible spouses of borrowers who pass away to stay in the home without foreclosure. • More Affordable: Upfront mortgage insurance premiums (MIPs) have been lowered by the FHA. If you take not more than 60% of your proceeds in the first year, you will

only be charged an upfront MIP of 0.5% of the appraised home value. If you cross the 60% threshold, the upfront MIP will be 2.5% (on a $200,000 home, 2.5% = $5,000 vs. 0.5% = $1,000).

Since 2003 when I first got into the reverse mortgage industry, many changes have been made to the program. Each change to the program guidelines have been implemented with the borrower’s best interests in mind and to protect their largest asset in their retirement. The reverse mortgage offers solutions to a variety of financial issues. Each person’s situation is different. Call me today to discuss how a reverse mortgage can make a difference in your life!
