By Richard “Pete” Peterson
Major league baseball starts March 29 this year. All 30 teams will play on that date, the first time this has happened since 1968. This is also the sixty-first season since Jackie Robinson became the major leagues first black player, opening the door for such future Hall of Famers as The The Paper Paper -- 760.747.7119 760.747.7119

Hank Aaron, Ernie Banks and Willie Mays. Robinson also paved the way for 3 brave women – Toni Stone, Connie Morgan and Mamie Johnson to play in the male-dominated Negro Leagues. When Hank Aaron left the Indianapolis Clowns for the majors, he was replaced by a female, Miss
Connie Morgan. That’s right. A girl took over for Hank. However, it is Marcenia Lyle Stone, of St. Paul, Minnesota, who became the first woman to play professionally in a men’s league. Miss Stone signed with the Clowns in 1953, after excelling against men for years. One of four children, Stone’s
parents believed strongly in a good education. When at age 10 their daughter showed more interest in baseball, track and field and ice skating than studies, they made her sit down with a priest, Father Keith. The priest aimed was to convince Miss Stone to give up baseball. It didn’t happen. After the get together

the priest asked the strong-minded young lady to play on his team in the Catholic Midget League. By age 15, Stone had gained a reputation as a baseball phenom. Using her dazzling speed and outstanding bat control, she became a member of Twin City Colored Giants, a travelling men’s team. She also played on several teams in the highly-competitive meatpackers league.
In early 1940’s, Stone moved to San Francisco to help an ailing sister. She arrived in the California city with 50 cents in her pocket, sleeping in the bus station until she found work, first in a cafeteria, and later as a forklift operator. She underwent a personal transformation at this time, changing her name to Toni, and dropping ten years off her real age, so to be more recruitable by male teams. She was soon playing for the American Legion, where she gained her nick name, ‘Tomboy.’ She then signed with the San Francisco Sea Lions of the West Coast Negro Baseball League. Her pay? A princely $200 a month, but it exposed her abilities to high profile managers and team owners. According to Buck O’Neil, the famous chronicler of black baseball, this is when Toni became a skilled bunter. Speaking in 1993, shortly after Toni was inducted into the Woman’s Sports Hall of Fame in Long Island New York, O’Neil is

1. Wear your glasses to make sure your partner is actually in the bed.
2. Set timer for 3 minutes, in case you doze off in the middle.
3. Set the mood with lighting. (Turn them ALL OFF!) 4. Make sure you put 911 on your speed dial before you begin. 5. Write partner's name on your hand in case you can't remember. 6. Use extra Poly Grip so your teeth don't end up under the bed.
7. Have Tylenol ready in case you actually complete the act.
8. Make all the noise you want.... the neighbors are deaf, too. 9. If it works, call everyone you know with the good news!
quoted as saying, “She made her living with the swinging bunt. She’d lay a pitch down hard enough to get by the pitcher, but soft enough the second baseman couldn’t get to it. If he did field it, which was rare, they’d never throw Toni out with her speed.” It was not an easy life for a black female ball player. She endured racist and sexist slurs and thrown bottles for ruining the ‘men’s’ game. Jim Crow attitudes were everywhere present in the America of the late 40’s as well. Toni, and other black players, had to patronize black run businesses and room at hotels that catered to blacks only.
played well. In one game, she singled off legendary pitcher, Satchel Paige, promptly stole second base, and came home on a team mate’s single. Her opponents showed little deference to her being a woman, sliding hard into second base with spikes high. She was traded to the Kansas City Monarchs in 1954 and retired before the season began in 1955, hobbled by sore legs, the resentment of teammates and disappointed bosses. She died in 1996.
Still, this courageous woman carved out a legacy as the first female to play professionally in a man’s league.
Toni’s baseball skills ameliorated the hatred somewhat. Once after a game, as she ate lunch alone in the stands, a group of white girls brought her a soft drink and pie. But, that was the exception, not the rule. In 1953, the Indianapolis Clowns signed Toni, as they developed into ‘showy’ team, not unlike what the basketball Harlem Globetrotters would become. They needed a boast in attendance since Robinson’s rise to the big leagues caused a drop off in fans willing to fork out green backs to see black baseball. Also, other star players like Hank Aaron left for the majors.
Syd Pollack, the Clowns owner, was quoted as saying he’d do anything to “get a seat in a seat, if that means free hot dogs and peanuts or a kiss from my momma.” Pollack hoped that signing Toni would improve attendance. This was not to be though she 10. Don't even think about trying it twice. ............................

Picture: Shot of Toni in Clowns uniform On March 13, 1954, the Cleveland Call and Post newspaper ran an article stating the Indianapolis Clowns Baseball Team had signed Connie Morgan, (Constance Enola) a 19year-old girl, to join Toni Stone and Mamie ‘Peanut’ Johnson in the Negro Leagues.
The black press treated Morgan, Johnson and Stone as box office friends . .)
Finkelstein and Jesus
Jesus was wandering around Jerusalem when he decided that he really needed a new robe. After looking around for a while, he saw a sign for Finkelstein, the Tailor.
So, he went in and made the necessary arrangements to have Finkelstein prepare a new robe for him. A few days later, when the robe was finished, Jesus tried it on -- and it was a perfect fit! He asked how much he owed.
Finkelstein brushed him off: "No, no, no, for the Son of God there's no charge!
She was quite attractive and feminine when not in uniform. The Baltimore Afro-American newspaper ran a picture of her in a baseball uniform next to one of her in a white dress, complete with long white gloves. The caption read, “Miss Connie Morgan: The baseball player and the lady.” This illustrates the dichotomy she and the other female baseball pioneers faced - - how to express their athleticism and their femininity, and still be one of the ‘boys.’
She was a darling of the black press. On May 19, 1954, the Afro-American reported she “electrified over 6,000 fans when she ranged far to her right to make a sensational stop of a hardhit ball, flipped to shortstop Bill Holder and started a lightening double play against the Birmingham Barons.” When the Monarchs travelled to New York to play a double-

"Jesus & Finkelstein it is."
"Oh, no, no," said Finkelstein. "Finkelstein & Jesus..
After all, I am the craftsman."
The two of them debated this for some time.
Their discussion was long and spirited, but ultimately fruitful -- and they finally came up with a mutually acceptable compromise. A few days later, the new sign went up over Finkelstein's shop:
Jesus readily agreed and as promised, extolled the virtues of his Finkelstein robe whenever he spoke to the masses.

'OLD' IS WHEN.... You're not sure if these are facts or jokes.

Connie Morgan had played 5 years as a catcher for the North Philadelphia “Honey Drippers,” hitting .338. With the Clowns, she was a second baseman, the same position the fabled Hank Aaron when he was with the team. Morgan also excelled at basketball, playing for several highly-competitive area teams.
However, may I ask for a small favor. Whenever you give a sermon, perhaps you could just mention that your nice new robe was made by Finkelstein, the Tailor?"
A few months later, while Jesus was again walking through Jerusalem he happened to walk past Finkelstein's shop and noted a huge line of people waiting for Finkelstein's robes.

draws, and talented players. They noted that Morgan had been personally scouted by the Clowns manager, Oscar Charleston, who would be inducted into Baseball’s Hall of Fame in 1976. Charleston noted, “Morgan throws across the diamond rank on a par with many major leaguers.”
He pushed his way through the crowd to speak to him and as soon as Finkelstein spotted him he said: "Jesus, Jesus, look what you've done for my business! "Certainly," replied Jesus.

header at Yankee Stadium, The New York Amsterdam News praised Morgan, Stone and Johnson, “These girls take a back seat to no one on the field.” One-time team mate, Gordon Hopkins in The Washington Post said, the women were “No joke. You hit a ball to Toni, she’d gun you out. Connie had a great bat. She could play shortstop or third base, even the outfield. Mamie, if that little peanut didn’t whiff you, she’d get you to roll out to second.”
In a story on Morgan in 1954. The Philadelphia Tribune, her home town paper, noted, “Before she lit up the Clowns, she graduated from John Bartram High School. In the off season, she’ll attend William Penn Business School.” On July 24 ,1954, the Tribune reported that in her first appearance in Philly, the Clowns swept a doubleheader against the Monarchs at Connie Mack Stadium, with Morgan getting 3 hits in 7 at bats.
After her first season with Kansas City, a Norfolk Journal and Guide story reported Morgan had “switched from baseball to books and resumed her accounting classes at William Penn.” Alas, game statistics and records in the Negro Leagues were often poorly maintained, thus much of Connie Morgan’s career remains a mystery. She died October 14.1966. Did she hit a home run off Sam Bankhead, the future Brooklyn

Dodger pitcher, then pitching for the New York Black Giants? Probably. But there’s no valid documentation to back this claim. That she played in the male dominated Negro Leagues with the Indianapolis Clowns is a fact. For that achievement alone, she deserves special recognition and a place of honor in the annals of baseball.

slow curve toward the plate. The big batter swung and missed. Surprised and embarrassed, he yelled. “Throw me that again. I’ll hit it a mile.”
After he’d fouled off two fast balls, the young pitcher did indeed throw him that same pitch. The big man swung and missed. Again. Strike three.
No eye witnesses today can verify this incident that purportedly occurred on a fine summer day in Long Branch, New Jersey, we know two things are true. One, a male opponent saw Mamie’s diminutive size and called her ‘Peanut.” This nick name stuck with her throughout the rest of her life.
Secondly, we know that Peanut Johnson had a devastating curve ball to go with her exploding fast ball. According to Buck O’Neil, her curve floated until, “Six or seven feet from home plate, like a hummingbird going for a flower, it darted left or right so sudden it fooled the hitter, the catcher, and sometimes the umpire.”
Ms. Johnson herself bristled when a reporter suggested she learned her curve ball from Satchel Paige. “I knew how to throw it before Mr. Paige worked with me. He just helped me perfect it.”
Mamie ‘Peanut’ Johnson’s achievements have been honored at the White House, and at the Negro Leagues Museum in Kansas City. A book and a play have been written about her. A neighborhood park near her home, was named for her.

Johnson was just 17 years of age when she began with the Clowns. During her three years with them, she complied a record of 33 wins and 7 losses, but due to incomplete records and poor preservation of those that were kept, many claims made about her cannot be confirmed. That she had pin point control of her fastball and curve is a given.
But, did she throw 76 straight strikes in one game? That’s dubious for several reasons, the most obvious being that most great pitchers pride themselves on getting hitters out with pitches not in the strike zone, so this is a doubtful claim. Ms. Johnson told the New York Post in 2001, she began playing the game in her native South Carolina, making balls from rocks, twine and black tape. “I threw anything that I could throw. I was knocking birds off the fence with rocks, honey.” “We played ball every day,” she said. “Boy against boy or boys and girls playing side by side.” While living in New Jersey, she recalled being the only girl and the only AfricanAmerican on her team. When she settled in the District of Columbia, she played on otherwise all-male church and semipro teams. When she was 17, she and another young woman travelled to Alexandria, VA to answer a call for tryouts with the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League. The 1992 film, “A League of Their Own”

1. Why do big box stores, Costco in particular, introduce new product and then you try it, like it, buy it and want more. You go back . . you can no longer find it because Costco no longer stocks it.
2. Why do tv networks and local tv stations have commercials and bumpers (the music at the front and back of programs) so loud? You set the volume of the set to a comfortable level for the program you’re watching and then a commercial comes and blows you out of your chair.
I’ve tried shaking my fist at the tv set. That doesn’t seem to work. Neither does shouting at the tv set.

But they don’t flaunt their gayness - they don’t dress in frilly frocks and make snide, snarky comments about other straight skaters. (For those who don’t know, Johnny Weir is the openly gay commentator NBC chose to hire. Bad decision. He offended a lot of viewers. Not because he’s gay. That’s his business . . . but the way in which he chose to present himself. I’m sure there are a number of gay commentators who are more suitable and would not offend the viewing audience quite so much. NBC made lots of mistakes with the Olympics. Johnny Weir was one of the most glaring ones.

SANDAG will select projects to support this summer. Procopio said the application has broad community support and noted that the Downtown Business Association is donating funds toward design and materials to make interim improvements to replace median landscaping. If SANDAG approves the grants, design would involve public input, with a goal of construction beginning in mid-2020. Mayor Sam Abed declared, “We have a beautiful historic downtown; we need to protect that historical value and at the same time adapt to change.” As a member of the SANDAG board he said he has seen many similar designs. “I know a lot of people hate roundabouts, but this is an opportunity for us to take a smart growth program.” He added, “I’m not going to subscribe to the opinion to leave it as it is. Let’s create some vibrancy, a walkable community. I think this vision is great. We may need to refine it.”

was based on this group. Although major league baseball was integrated by then, the women’s league was all white. “Those girls looked at us like we were crazy,” Mamie recalled. “They wouldn’t even let us try out. That’s the same discrimination that black players faced before Mr. Robinson broke the barrier.” While Ms. Johnson was pitching for a team sponsored by St. Cyprian’s Catholic Church in Washington, D.C, a scout saw her dominate a men’s team. Asked to try out for the Clowns, she made the team, becoming a regular. “I worked just as hard as the fellas,” Mamie told The Post.
“I pitched nine innings, just like our other guys. Some fellas acted ugly to me at first, but when they found out I was a ballplayer instead of some gimmick, they accepted me, and the other girls as well.”
She regarded her rejection by the women’s league as a blessing. In an interview with the Kansas City Star she said, “If I’d played with the women, I’d have missed out on the opportunity to play with the men like I did. With them, I’d be just another skirt. With the men, I stood out.” In her time with the Clowns, she earned $5,000 a season, enough to buy a house for herself and her son. She retired in 1955 to care for him. The Negro Leagues drew up a playing schedule for that year but folded before the season began.
After her retirement, Ms, Johnson studied nursing at North Carolina A&T State University and worked for thirty years at Sibley Memorial Hospital. She died December 18, 2017, at a Washington D.C. hospital, due to a heart ailment. She was 82. Her numerous survivors included 6 stepchildren and nineteen grandchildren. A baseball field at Rosedale Recreation Center in Northwest Washington, D.C., was named for her in 2013. She met Mo’ne Davis, the Philadelphia girl who gained fame as a pitcher in the Little League World Series in 2014. “She reminds me of myself,” Ms. Johnson said. “I wasn’t no baby doll. No girlie girl. Baseball was all I knew. And I loved it.”

On March 19th, 2018, as the new baseball season starts, let’s tip our hat to these brave young women and give them a bow for their sacrifice and contributions to our national past time.

dents can get an honest look at Columbus, instead of some watered-down version of his contribution to history.
The article is loaded with facts little known to those among us who have little access, or even interest in that part of history. I was aghast to find out he was everything opposite of what generations of elementary students have been taught. Keep up your writing Matthew....I hope to read more of your work; it's outstanding! Thank you. /s/Joanne Stodghill Vista, Ca.

To the editors,
For me, the article on Columbus last week was truly excellent. I liked the writing style, and I learned a lot. I also get a lot of pleasure from the Daily Chuckle. Your paper is great. Thank you. /s/TERESA KOKKE San Diego County, CA. Still More Matthew Fans
Thank you so much for including the article on Christopher Columbus by Mathew Fabritius. It was absolutely excellent. He definitely is an extremely gifted writer. May I suggest you let him do a series of historical articles for future editions of The Paper. No aspersions intended against The Paper, as I happen to enjoy it immensely, but too bad his article did not make it to a publication with greater circulation like The Weekly Standard, The Christian Science Monitor, or the Readers Digest. I will do my best to try to patronize your advertisers. Henry J. Presutti San Diego County, CA.

Homelessness is Now Illegal Letter to the Editor
I remember the days when I wandered homeless in my youth, sleeping wherever I could. Pitching my tent was optional. In the countryside, no one was bothered; but in cities, wow.
Pissing on a tree gave it nourishment, but not so for a metal hydrant. That would confuse all the dogs and their owners. "I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived." Henry David Thoreau
So what do I suggest? We agree the solution is not easy, but in my opinion, quite simple. We are at war, in a way, and the derelict homeless are distant relatives of Mankind's Enemy, much like the Japanese, Italians, and German citizens of America during WW II. Back then, those citizens were forcefully rounded up and put in self-sustaining concentration camps, subsidized by the government as needed.
This approach has several benefits: 1. the streets get cleaned of Hepatitis A, 2. the homeless druggies get clean and straight for lack of rec. drugs and booze, 3. the uneducated, unskilled loafers would

Our California Dams
Last week I toured Oroville Dam in Northern California, with other legislators to get a firsthand look at repairs underway. Fortunately, though almost 200,000 people downstream were evacuated, a major disaster was averted. Escondido has two dams, one at Lake Dixon and one at Lake Wohlford. My district also includes parts of Lake Hodges which has a dam we see from Via de la Valle.
Dams in California are under the jurisdiction of the Department of Water Resources, Division of Safety of Dams. In the aftermath of the Oroville spillway failure, the Division has ordered spillway inspections at 93 high-risk dams.
The need for more water storage capacity was obvious to voters in 2014 when they passed Proposition 1, a $7.2 billion water bond that included $2.7 billion earmarked for new dams and reservoirs. But proposals for them are being delayed by the California Water Commission, the agency tasked with dispersing funds under the provisions of Proposition 1. I joined a bipartisan group of leg-
islators criticizing these delays in building 11 water projects, including the Sites Reservoir in Colusa County and the Temperance Flat Dam east of Fresno. In light of what may be a recurring drought and deep federal cutbacks on water allocations for California farmers, more water storage projects must be approved. It’s been almost four years since passage of Prop. 1 and to date, no new water storage projects have been approved. A four year delay on new water projects was clearly not what 67 percent of California’s voters had in mind when they passed Prop. 1. We need to expand our water storage capacity statewide, including our southern California region now -- further bureaucratic delays cannot be tolerated! Minority Floor Leader Marie Waldron, R-Escondido, represents the 75th Assembly District in the California Legislature, which includes the communities of Bonsall, Escondido, Fallbrook, Hidden Meadows, Pala, Palomar Mountain, Pauma Valley, Rainbow, San Marcos, Temecula, Valley Center and Vista.

Opening the Outdoors Grant Call for Applicants - The San Diego Foundation today announced the availability of grant funding to connect, protect and increase access to nature through the Opening the Outdoors Program. The 2018 grant cycle will prioritize nonprofit projects that protect and connect outdoor spaces and improve access to nature, especially for the San Diego region’s most park-poor and underserved communities. According to The San Diego Foundation Parks for Everyone report, 45 percent of San Diego County’s total land area is green space. However, many low-income, ethnically diverse communities have limited access to parks and open spaces. The Opening the Outdoors program serves to close this gap and ensure that San Diego youth grow up with equitable access to nature and similar, shared experiences outside. To be considered, eligible organizations must send a Letter of Intent by March 9 for projects ranging from $25,000 to $75,000 that address at least one of the following goals:

fast. After paying the tab, he checks his pockets and leaves three pennies for a tip.
Historically Speaking by Tom Morrow
As he strides toward the door, his waitress muses, only half to herself, "You know, you can tell a lot about a man by the tip he leaves." The old man turns around, curiosity getting the better of him. "Oh, really? Tell me, what does my tip say?" "Well, this penny tells me you're a thrifty man."
Barely able to conceal his pride, the man utters, "Hmm, true enough."
"And this penny, it tells me you're a bachelor."
Surprised at her perception, he says, "Well, that's true, too." "And the third penny tells me that your father was also a bachelor." Homer
Homer, a handsome dude, walked into a sports bar around 9: 58 P.M. He sat down next to a blonde at the bar and stared up at the TV. The 10: 00 news was now on. The news crew was covering a story of a man preparing to jump off a ledge of a tall building. The blonde looked at Homer and said, "Do you think he'll jump?"
Brilliant, But Hated or Loved by Millions
He was one of America’s brilliant authors, commentators, and philosophers. He was hated by half of those who knew him or read his work, and beloved by the other half who admired his commentary and written words. But, admire him or vehemently disagree with him, Gore Vidal was one of America’s great minds of the 20th Century.
Eugene Louis Gore Vidal, who was born on Oct. 3, 1925, was an American writer and public intellectual known for his patrician manner, wit, and polished style of writing.
Homer said, "You know, I bet he'll jump."
The blonde replied, "Well, I bet he won't." Homer placed 20 dollars on the bar and said, "You're on!"
Just as the blonde placed her money on the bar, the guy did a swan dive off of the building, falling to his death. The blonde was very upset and handed her 20 dollars to Homer, saying, "Fair's fair. Here's your money." Homer replied, "I can't take your money; I saw this earlier on the 5 o'clock news and knew he would jump."
The blonde replied, "I did too, but I didn't think he'd do it again." Homer took the money.
There comes a time when a woman just has to trust her husband... for example...
A wife comes home late at night and quietly opens the door to her bedroom. From under the blanket she sees four legs instead of two. She reaches for a baseball bat and starts hitting the blanket as hard as she can. Once she's done, she goes to the kitchen to have a drink.
As she enters, she sees her husband there, reading a magazine.
"Hi Darling", he says, "Your parents have come to visit us, so l let them stay in our bedroom. Did you say ‘hello’? Before we lose our autonomy And our economy crumbles into dust
Chuckles Cont. on Page 11
His father was the first aeronautics instructor at West Point. He was born into a political family; his maternal grandfather, Thomas Pryor Gore, served as United States senator from Oklahoma. Gore Vidal himself was a Democrat, who twice sought elected office -- first to the United States House of Representatives from New York in 1960, then to the U.S. Senate from California in 1982.
His father, Eugene Vidal Sr., was director (1933–37) of the U.S. Commerce Department's Bureau of Air Commerce during the Roosevelt Administration, and also was romantically involved with famed aviatrix Amelia Earhart, to whom young Vidal grew very close.
During World War II, Vidal become a maritime warrant officer serving as first mate of a merchant ship berthed at Dutch Harbor, Alaska. Vidal began with the success of the military novel Williwaw, a men-at-war story derived from his duty during the War. His third novel, The City and the Pillar (1948) caused a moralistic furor over his dispassionate presentation of a young man coming to terms with a homosexual relationship. Vidal had to take on the pen name "Edgar Box" and wrote a series of mystery novels. The Edgar Box novels sold well and earned then-black-listed Vidal a secret
living. That mystery-novel success led Vidal to write in other genres and he produced the stage play, later a movie, The Best Man, about politics (1960). Vidal’s historical novels formed a seven-book series: Washington, D.C. (1967, Burr (1973), 1876 (1976), Lincoln (1984), Empire (1987), Hollywood (1990) and The Golden Age (2000).
Vidal explored the intricacies of power political and cultural. He described President, Ronald Reagan as a "triumph of the embalmer's art. He said "Reagan's provincial worldview, and that of his administration's, was out of date and inadequate to the geopolitical realities of the world in the late 20th century. The most notable and, at the time, volatile feud was between Conservative editor and writer William F. Buckley of National Review magazine and Vidal. In 1968, the ABC television network hired Vidal and William F. Buckley, Jr. as political analysts of both presidential conventions. Their commentaries led to Buckley threatening to assault Vidal on air. After days of bickering, their debates degraded to vitriolic attacks. In discussing the 1968 Democratic National Convention protests, the two intellectuals argued about protesters displaying a Viet Cong flag. Vidal told Buckley to "shut up a minute.”
The televised debate continued. "As far as I'm concerned, the only sort of procrypto-Nazi I can think of is yourself,” said Vidal. Buckley replied, "Now listen, you queer. Stop calling me a crypto-Nazi, or I'll sock you in the goddamn face, and you'll stay plastered.” Their quarrel was interrupted by the ABC News anchorman-moderator Howard K. Smith and they returned to providing the political analysis and commentary for which they had been hired. Later, William F. Buckley said he regretted having called Gore Vidal "a queer" yet said that Vidal was an "evangelist for bisexuality.” Buckley sued Vidal for libel; at trial, the judge said that the "court must conclude that Vidal's comments, in these paragraphs, meet the minimal standard of fair comment. The inferences made by Vidal, from Buckley's earlier editorial statements, cannot be said to be completely unreasonable.” Vidal remembered his nemesis William F. Buckley, Jr., who had died on Feb. 27, 2008. “I thought hell is bound to be a livelier place, as he joins, forever, those whom he served in life, applauding their prejudices and fanning their hatred.” The Buckley-Vidal debates, their aftermath and cultural significance, were the focus of a 2015 documentary film called Best of Enemies.
On July 31, 2012, Vidal died of pneumonia at his home in the Hollywood Hills at the age of 86. He was buried in Rock Creek Cemetery in Washington, D.C. Domestic obituaries proclaimed “Gore Vidal Dies at 86,” “Prolific, Elegant, Acerbic Writer.” The New York Times described him as "an Augustan figure who believed himself to be the last of a breed – probably a true statement.

GETTING READY TO DIE
Last month, I contributed an article concerning my “falsified” death. It was heartening to hear from friends that they were happy I was still alive. In response to that article, Lyle Davis, The Paper’s editor, suggested I write an article on getting ready to die. Here it is. As a pastor, I am often involved in the process of both dying and making final arrangements. My experience tells me how important it is to prepare for death.
Recent articles in The Week magazine on finding a better way to die, helped to confirm that there are some steps one can take to make the process easier. First, it is important to realize death is inevitable and unavoidable. It could come by just living out your
Recent articles suggest not leaving a mess for others to clean up. Most of us accumulate, hoard, or keep unnecessary stuff, which has long outlived its usefulness. Get rid of it. Clean it out. Give it away. Trash it. Making arrangements for your disposal is critical. Do you want to be cremated, a full body funeral with a casket, a viewing, memorial service, where, scattered at sea, an officiant, music, or anything else ? Let someone know. Do it today. Don’t wait. The same urgency applies to wills, trusts, legal documents, special provisions, and desires. Write it down. Let someone know. To not do it, will only create confusion. Spiritually, set your house in order. Make amends, forgive, reconcile, pay your debts, believe, and trust God.
Finally, dispose of a secret past love letters, pictures, memorabilia. It is difficult enough to mourn loss, without someone’s unfinished past.

Dan and Stan were sitting on a bench, wondering what to do. They only had $5 between them and they wanted to do something fun. Five dollars wasn't enough to go to the movies, get drinks at a bar, eat a nice meal or anything they liked to do. Exasperated, Stan says "just give me the $5, I'll go in that Rite-Aid and find something. Just trust me, I'll figure something out." Dan gives him the five and waits outside.
A few minutes later, Stan emerges with a huge smile on his face. "Dan! I found the perfect thing! It's so awesome, you're never going to believe it!" "OK...what did you get?" Stan proudly holds out a box of tampons. Dan says "What the hell did you get those for?!" Stan says "Dude, read the side of the box.

Scholarship Program Applications
Applications for the 2018 City of Oceanside – Martin Luther King, Jr. Scholarship Program are now available at local high schools and at the Oceanside Public Library.
Any graduating senior who lives in Oceanside and will attend college after graduation is eligible to apply, regardless of what high school the student attends. The scholarship program has no racial, ethnic, gender or other arbitrary criteria; residency in Oceanside is the only requirement for application. Students may contact the scholarship coordinator at their high school for information about the Dear Tech Support,
Last year I upgraded from Boyfriend 5.0 to Husband 1.0 and noticed a distinct slowdown in overall system performance, particularly in the flower and jewelry applications and intimacy, which operated flawlessly under Boyfriend 5.0. In addition, Husband 1.0 uninstalled many other valuable programs, such as Romance 9.5 and Personal Attention 6.5, and then installed undesirable programs such as: NBA 5.0, NFL 3.0 and Golf 4.1. Conversation 8.0 no longer runs, and House cleaning 2.6 simply crashes the system. Please note that I have tried running Nagging 5.3 to fix these problems, but to no avail. What can I do? Signed, Desperate
The response (that came weeks later out of the blue): Dear Desperate,
First keep in mind, Boyfriend 5.0 is an
program and application forms. The deadline for submission of applications this year is April 7th.
The scholarship program awarded $40,000 to fourteen students from four different high schools in 2017 and has awarded over $735,000 since the first scholarships were awarded in 1993. All funds for the program come from community donations; no public monies are used for the scholarships. The 2018 recipients will be introduced to donors at the annual scholarship garden reception on May 18, 2018. This is the only fundraising event for the program. Call 760.435.5049 for more information about the scholarship program.
Entertainment Package, while Husband 1.0 is an operating system. Please enter command: I thought you loved me.html and try to download Tears 6.2. Do not forget to install the Guilt 3.0 update. If that application works as designed, Husband 1.0 should then automatically run the applications Jewelry 2.0 and Flowers 3.5.
However, remember, overuse of the above application can cause Husband 1.0 to default to Grumpy Silence 2.5, Happy Hour 7.0, or Beer 6.1. Please note that Beer 6.1 is a very bad program that will download the Farting and Snoring Loudly Beta version. Whatever you do, DO NOT, under any circumstances, install Mother-In-Law 1.0 as it runs a virus in the background that will eventually seize control of all your system resources. In addition, please do not attempt to reinstall the Boyfriend 5.0 program. These are unsupported applications and will crash Husband 1.0. In summary, Husband 1.0 is a great program, but it does have limited memory and cannot learn new applications quickly.

The Paper • Page 12 • March 1, 2018 traveled and communicated pretty much the same from generation to generation. All that has changed. Demographers typically use thirty years to define a generation. Selecting what year a new generation begins is arbitrary and depends upon what the demographer is seeking to analyze or prove. For the purpose of our discussion, we’ve selected as our “Senior” generation those born between1935 and 1965 (today they are 53 to 83 years old). We compare them with the “Latest” generation born between 1980 and 2010. (8 to 38) years old.

Change: Technology, culture and people. Part II of?
Last week we discussed the explosion of technological change and the accelerating growth of human knowledge. Because change has come so fast, the last three generations of Americans, Boomers, XGeners and Milennials, each grew up in very different worlds. There have always been differences between generations but in the past those differences were mainly the result of natural changes in the way people think as they mature and how their priorities change with age. Until the twentieth century, change came slowly. From grandpa to grandson, folks worked, lived,

have to learn a trade and thus support their community camp, 4. those qualified to matriculate to regular society would be fully able to offer a skill-in-trade and support themselves, 5. Abstemious living could actually improve their overall health, as in WWII, a meatless diet resulted in less arteriosclerosis and heart disease among Europeans forced to live on only grain and vegetables. We all know there's a serious problem with the mentally ill amidst the homeless, but good nutrition, minimal stress, stability, enough sleep, caring friendship, and no rec drugs, over time would go a long way to help cure them.
This idea is humane with many benefits, despite the apparent loss of civil rights that the public will raucously dispute. No elected politician would be able to put this

The half generation between these two are the “tweeners,” a not particularly interesting transition group consisting of the kids and grand kids of the “Seniors.” The “Seniors” include the “Boomers” and the “Latest” include the “Millennials.”
Earth and even God knew it and blessed us. America was “small town.” Whether we lived in big cities, suburbs, small towns or family farms our neighborhood was our world. We knew the law enforcement, merchants, store owners and our neighbors. Growing up we baled hay, detassled corn, repaired our cars, painted our houses and changed our own faucets. The drug stores even had tube testers and a supply of TV tubes so we could repair our own TV sets. We were proud of our competence and independence. We went to work in the America’s factories and offices knowing that we had to earn our pay. There were no rewards for simply “participating.” We felt comfortable in the belief that we were in control of our own lives. As time passed, little by little old
skills and knowledge began to seem less relevant. Cars became too complicated to accommodate the “shade tree mechanics” and so have a lot of other things that we used to do for ourselves. Skilled trades succumbed to automation. Technological change came fast and furious. About the time you get comfortable with your computer, smart phone, software or applications along comes the next version and the old ones don’t work anymore. The changes don’t seem to make things better, just different. To make things even worse, your grandson thinks you’re doofus because you don’t Snapchat and didn’t even know that there is a feature length animation movie featuring The Emojis. Next week we continue the battle of the generations.
It is important to note that our conclusions are broad brush generalizations. There are a great many “Seniors” and “Latest” generation individuals who do not fit any stereotype. That being said, most of us will recognize the broad characteristics of each generation and appreciate the environmental factors that make them so different. The “seniors” were the last “old school” generation. Their parents were “Americas Greatest Generation,” they endured The Great Depression and then saved the World from Fascism in WWII. They built a golden age for their families. The freest and richest country on the planet’s economy was booming and life was good. Patriotism flourished. Their children grew up believing that America was the greatest country on

simple plan into action. But when the problem gets severe enough, a benevolent dictator could do it, and that's where this American experiment in a so-called republic might be headed real soon. So, do politicians think to cure this widespread economic dilemma by hacking at the limbs of the homeless? Where is the moral genius that will strike at the root of the problem?

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

You just haven't lived until you've tried Mrs. Hall's prized Virginia Baked Ham. Tell me, Rabbi, when are you going to break down and try it?" The rabbi looked at the priest with a big grin, and said, "At your wedding." The Usher
An elderly woman walked into the local country church. The friendly usher greeted her at the door and helped her up the flight of steps. "Where would you like to sit?" he asked politely. "The front answered.
"You really don't want to do that," the usher said. "The pastor is really boring."
"Do you happen to know who I am?" the woman inquired. "No," he said.
"I'm the pastor's mother," she replied indignantly.
"Do you know who I am?" he asked. "No," she said. "Good," he answered.
Show and Tell
A kindergarten teacher gave her class a "show and tell" assignment. Each student was instructed to bring in an object that represented their religion to share with the class. The first student got up in front of the class and said, "My name is Benjamin and I am Jewish and this is a Star of David." The second student got up in front of the class and said, "My name is Mary. I'm a Catholic and this is a Rosary."
The third student got in up front of the class and said, "My name is Tommy. I am Methodist, and this is a casserole." The Twenty and the One

"I've had a pretty good life," the twenty proclaimed. "Why I've been to Las Vegas and Atlantic City, the finest restaurants in New York , performances on Broadway, and even a cruise to the Caribbean." "Wow!" said the one-dollar bill. "You've really had an exciting life!"
"So, tell me," says the twenty, "where have you been throughout your lifetime?"
The one dollar bill replies, "Oh, I've been to the Methodist Church, the Baptist Church, the Lutheran Church." The twenty-dollar bill interrupts, "What's a church?" Goat for Dinner
The young couple invited their elderly pastor for Sunday dinner. While they were in the kitchen preparing the meal, the minister asked their son what they were having. "Goat," the little boy replied.
"Goat?" replied the startled man of the cloth, "Are you sure about that?"
"Yep," said the youngster. "I heard Dad say to Mom, 'Today is just as good as any to have the old goat for dinner.'

Under the proposed Discovery Village South Specific Plan, the proposed residential development introduces two housing product types. “Type A” is a compact single-family detached home with two stories (35-foot maximum height). “Type B” is a single-family detached home, designed in a motor court configuration with two-stories (35-foot maximum height). The project site would be accessed by two street connections to Discovery Street, an un-built section of the City’s Mobility Element, which would be constructed concurrent with the grading of the proposed project. The extension of Discovery Street was previously approved for development (with a certified Environmental Impact Report (EIR)) under the University District Specific Plan Area, as a part of the Discovery Village North Project (immediately north of the proposed project site). The proposed homes would not be completed until a large portion of the Discovery Street extension is completed. Other uses proposed within the project site include natural open space, recreational space, community amenity space, and associated circulation, which would be dispersed throughout the community. A homeowners’ association (HOA) would maintain these common recreational areas, and proposed private streets. Environmental Determination: A Mitigated Negative Declaration (MND16-001) was prepared for this project and circulated for public review pursuant to the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). Location of Property: The project site is located directly southeast of Bent Avenue and the proposed extension of Discovery Street; it is bounded on the west by Craven Road, the south by the Discovery Hills Specific Plan area, and to the southeast by the Kaiser Permanente Medical Center, more particu-
