When we think of the greatest secret weapons of World War II we immediately think of the Manhattan Project which created the world’s first two atomic bombs (code names “Little Boy,” and “Fat Man,” respectively). These atomic bombs were, unquestionably, the mightiest and most lethal weapons unleased in human history, and their sudden appearance were like artificial suns exploding off the pages of Biblical “Revelations.” Their explosions mushroomed over 11 miles into the sky creating a seemingly unreal Armageddon image that – even in its aftermath – still could not be fully comprehended by scientists who witnessed the seemingly impossible splitting of the atom. The Little Boy – all 9,700 pounds of it — was the first super bomb to find its target on August 6, 1945 when it was dropped over Hiroshima, Japan, erasing much of the landscape below. Robert Lewis, co-pilot of the Enola Gay airplane which carried the bomb, was quoted as saying, “As the bomb fell over Hiroshima and exploded, we saw an entire city disappear.” Sergeant Joseph Stiborik, radar operator on board, remembered how the crew was in shock and remained, mostly, in stunned silence on the return flight. The only words he recalled hearing were from co-pilot Lewis who uttered, “My God, what have we done?” Radarman, Stiborik, struggled later to find words, “I was dumbfounded. Remember, nobody had ever seen what an Abomb could do before. Here was a whole damn town nearly as big as Dallas, one minute all in good shape and the next minute disappeared and covered with fires and smoke” One account says there was an initial “burst of exhilaration” with some men remarking that the bomb would quickly end the war. But then talk seemed to evaporate quickly, giving way to shock, then stunned silence. It became difficult for the crewmen to truly comprehend the enormity of what just happened. No mortal could. After all, no human had ever before seen such unimaginable power. At the precise moment of explosion a blinding light filled the entire interior of the Enola Gay aircraft. As if caught in a bright prism of light, movement through time and space, suddenly, seemed unreal for the crewman on board, as they struggled to sort through a state of disbelief, and shock, of what they had just witnessed. Prior to the release of Little Boy from the Boeing B-29 Superfortress aircraft, navigator,

Theodore “Dutch” Van Kirk, worked in synch with the plane’s bombardier (Tom Ferebee) to confirm winds and aimpoint. When the nearly 5-ton atom bomb dropped free, the Enola Gay suddenly lurched upwards making the Superfortress pilot, Paul Warfield Tibbets, Jr., to send the plane into a 150-degree turn. As Tibbets would later elaborate, “We were just leveling out with throttles full forward when the bomb exploded at our back. All we saw was a bright flash like a photographer’s bulb going off in the aeroplane.” Within seconds, the first shock wave hit the plane. “There was a hell of a jolt! The sound was like the aeroplane being torn in half.” It wasn’t long when, “Shortly after, we got the second wave,” Tibbets would recall. “We turned to where we could look out and saw the cloud, where the city of Hiroshima had been.” Technical Sergeant, George R.
Caron, was the only photographer onboard the B-29 Enola Gay that historic day and the first to see the explosion. He was the tail gunner facing the rear of the B-29, giving him the vantage point of being the first man to witness the cataclysmic rise of a gigantic mushroom cloud that would level off at 60,000 feet. The mere image was terrifying just to behold. The Enola Gay flew full-throttle in the opposite direction using evasive action to desperately fly clear of the blast repercussions. The entire mission had been carefully planned. The B-29 was optimized to cruise at extremely high altitudes (for its time), thus minimizing or avoiding any reach by opposing Japanese fighter planes. Adding to its safety was the fact that Japan was in the rudimentary stages of radar, making the Superfortress virtually undetectable. All possibilities were weighed and addressed. In the
event of being shot down, the entire crew was told they, “were on their own.” Each of the elevenman crew was given a cyanide tablet in the event of capture. Other procedures were standard for the era: each crew member was allotted an evasion kit containing cloth maps that showed the best ground escape routes, as well as ‘Blood Chits,’ which were multi-lingual instructions stating, “I’m an American, help me escape and you’ll be rewarded.” The survival packages also included fishing and hunting gear, food rations, lengths of rope, first-aid kits, miniature compasses, flare guns, and gold coins to bribe one’s captors into helping them escape. In the specific case of the Enola Gay’s mission, they were also given highly-secret information of the locations of search-and-rescue teams which would be in the area. In regards to the Enola Gay’s flight-route, all allied aircraft

were barred from the southern area of Japan, primarily because the scientists who built the bomb were not sure of its full capability, or any other unknown effects it might trigger in cleaving the atom. Before the bombing, an order was issued by the 20th Air Force giving a 50-mile airspace restriction around Hiroshima, Japan. No chances were taken. The first atom-bomb drop was the exclusive mission of only three U.S. planes permitted within the restricted airspace: the Enola Gay, and two other B-29s that followed at a safe distance to record the effects of the blast. No large bomb prior to this had ushered in such residual elements such as deadly radiation on such a massive scale, the radiation being a second swipe from Death’s hand, if the initial blast did not claim its victims first. Radioactivity from an atomic bomb was virtually unknown to the common person. A split-second before the explosion of the world’s first atomic bomb, a crewman had accidentally broken his safety goggles. He quickly covered his eyes with his hands the best he could. His experience was other-worldly. Face covered, he nevertheless saw the skeletal bones in both his hands, as though seeing them through an X-ray. All this, against the backdrop of the entire sky lighting up, as if illuminated from a million artificial suns. The world’s second atom bomb,

A DC 'airport ticket agent' offers some examples of why the US is in so much trouble!
1. I had a New Hampshire Congresswoman ask for an aisle seat so that her hair wouldn't get messed up by being near the window. (On an airplane!)
2. I got a call from a Kansas Congressman's staffer, who wanted to go to Cape Town. I started to explain the length of the flight and the passport information, and then he interrupted me with, ''I'm not trying to make you look stupid, but Cape Town is in Massachusetts ..'' Without trying to make him look stupid, I calmly explained, ''Cape Cod is in
Fat Man, was even bigger at 10,300 pounds, and far more powerful. Fat Man found its target three days later on August 9, 1945, when it was dropped from a B-29 Bockscar bomber. Fat Man’s free fall was timed at 43 seconds before it exploded 2,000-feet above the ground, pulverizing Nagasaki, Japan, into unrecognizable rubble, in mere seconds!
Regarding that historic first-drop on Hiroshima, of all the crewmen aboard the Enola Gay that fateful day, navigator Theodore Van Kirk would become the last surviving member before he died on July 28, 2014. In October 2007, Van Kirk auctioned off his flight log he kept on the Enola Gay at the bombing of Hiroshima. He sold it for $358,500.00 in the hopes it would find its way to a museum for public-viewing. It did not. The years tend to dull the benchmark that was created back then. For good or for bad, it was a turning point in human history. Pandora’s box had finally been breached by science. We had ushered in the atomic age and the dawning of a new era. Humankind had unleashed unspeakable power of the nuclear bomb. Earlier voices at the beginning-stages of the first atomic bomb’s development can still be heard, like echoes from the past. When the first detonation of a nuclear weapon was achieved at the Trinity Test (July 16, 1945) in the Jornada del Muerto desert, 35 miles southeast of Socorro, New Mexico, physicist and director of the test, Kenneth Bainbridge – after witnessing the birth of the

3. A senior called, furious about a Florida package we did. I asked what was wrong with the vacation in Orlando . He said he was expecting an ocean-view room. I tried to explain that's not possible, since Orlando is in the middle of the state. He replied, 'Don't lie to me!, I looked on the map, and Florida is a very THIN state!!'' (OMG) 4. I got a call from a lawmaker's wife who asked, ''Is it possible to see England from Canada ?'' I said, ''No.''
She said, ''But they look so close on the map'' (OMG, again!)
5. An aide for a cabinet member once called and asked if he could rent a car in Dallas .. I pulled up the reservation and noticed he had only a 1-hour layover in Dallas ... When I asked him why he wanted to rent a car, he said, ''I heard Dallas was a big airport, and we will need a car to drive between gates to save time.'' 6. An Illinois Congresswoman called last week.

Nonetheless, the atomic bombs had shortened the war and, in so doing, ultimately saved countless lives in the long run.
Today, we stand at the crossroads between better-living by harnessing nuclear power and global peace, or we stand at the threshold of mutual annihilation. In all of life, hard lessons are often given to us; learning from them is often even harder. For example, World War II became known as “The war to end all wars.” It is human folly that World War I also went by the same name. Only time will tell what will become of us. Whatever our fate as citizens of this planet Earth, the release of Little Boy from the skies on August 6, 1945, will forever remain as one of the greatest secrets of World War II, which – in a split-second — remained a secret no more. Aside from the Manhattan Project which gave forth the biggest secrets of World War II,there were other highly-secret weapons that were crucial for victory.
The mid-1940s brought a most frightening reality: the German army had succeeded in conquering all of Western Europe. On the seas, Hitler’s U-boats were creating havoc as well. In the Atlantic, German U-boats were sinking Allied convoys that were carrying critical supplies for the war, threatening to bring Britain to its knees by cutting off her only lifeline. On all fronts, the outlook
know how it was possible that her flight from Detroit left at 8:30 a.m., and got to Chicago at 8:33 a.m. I explained that Michigan was an hour ahead of Illinois , but she couldn't understand the concept of time zones. Finally, I told her the plane went fast, and she bought that.
7. A New York lawmaker, called and asked, ''Do airlines put your physical description on your bag so they know whose luggage belongs to whom?'' I said, 'No, why do you ask?'
He replied, ''Well, when I checked in with the airline, they put a tag on my luggage that said (FAT), and I'm overweight. I think that's very rude!''
After putting him on hold for a minute, while I looked into it. (I was dying laughing). I came back and explained the city code for Fresno, Ca. is (FAT Fresno Air Terminal), and the airline was just putting a destination tag on his luggage. 8. A Senator John Kerry aide called to inquire about a trip package to Hawaii . After going over all the cost info, she asked, ''Would it be cheaper to fly to California and then take
was beginning to look grimmer by the day for the Allied Forces. Something had to be done to turn the tide of the war, and something had to be done quickly, or else. That something, that secret weapon, which Britain desperately needed, was now beginning to emerge, stronger and stronger, just 50 miles north of London, in a mysterious parcel of land known as Bletchley Park. Its seeds were first planted after the First World War. Britain had established a brain trust, a military establishment of the most brilliant minds to figure out and break various secret codes by the enemy. But disaster struck when Britain’s greatest and most versatile minds were unable to break Germany’s ingenious Enigma Code, which was so advanced, and so complex, as to be considered impenetrable. But then something strange, something unimaginable happened in 1938 when the militarytrained codebreakers were relocated to Bletchley Park, at a sprawling multi-level mansion. Shockingly, Britain’s Government Code and Cipher School (GC&CS) suddenly decided to take a most startling departure from its ranks and begin recruiting civilians that were not government-trained, not graduates of military academies and in fact, common every day citizens, many of whom had never even seen a code before, let alone solved one. This bold and bizarre concept of recruiting ordinary people of high intelligence, but with no code-breaking experience or

9. I just got off the phone with a freshman Congressman, from Ala. who asked, ''How do I know which plane to get on?''
I asked him what exactly he meant, to which he replied, ''I was told my flight number is 823, but none of these planes have numbers on them.'' 10. A California Senator called and said, ''I need to fly to PepsiCola, Florida. Do I have to get on one of those little computer planes?'' I asked if she meant fly to Pensacola and fly on a commuter plane. She said, ''Yeah, whatever, smarty!''
11. A Louisiana Senator called and had a question about the documents she needed in order to fly to China. After a lengthy discussion about passports, I reminded her that she needed a visa. "Oh, no I don't. I've been to China many times and never had to have one of those.''
I double checked and sure enough, her stay required a visa. When I told her this she

military training is, in retrospect, a most astonishing attempt to ‘think outside the box’ in a last, desperate attempt to decode Germany’s Enigma code which, up to this point, was technologically invincible. The importance of cracking the Enigma code was considered invaluable, even crucial to winning the war: “If Enigma would be penetrated, everything Hitler plotted would be known in advance. Access to the enemy’s inner-most secrets could alter the outcome of World War II.” (“Decoding Nazi Secrets,” Nova Public Television, DVD, 1999.)
Unknown to the world at large, there emerged a most startling secret notion that would parlay into one of history’s greatest secret weapons which would turn the tide of the war in Europe and change the course of history, forever. Recruitment of nondescript civilians began in the late 1930s and continued onward. These newly-hired civilian codebreaking candidates were added to the already established militarytrained codebreakers at Bletchley Park. According to historian and author, Sinclair McKay (“The Lost World of Bletchley Park”), the British already had thousands of military codebreakers in a variety of roles working in different locations, eventually reaching over 10,000 total. So, in light of what Mr. McKay said, why add more at Bletchley Park, especially from the civilian sector? The pivotal idea was to get fresh blood, fresh thinking, and a fresh perspective from potential civilian codebreakers. -In one 1941 recruiting strategy, the British government secretly asked The Daily Telegraph newspaper to organize and publish a very sophisticated and very advanced crossword puzzle competition. From the results of this contest, the best and most perceptive minds were contacted and

asked to “Be involved in a particular type of work as a contribution to the war effort.” In their own words, the British War Office set about seeking: “Top solvers of cryptic crossword puzzles, as these individuals had strong lateral thinking skills.”
The recruitment of profound and eclectic thinkers, fresh and untainted by conventional warfare tactics was a stroke of genius. With this unorthodox recruiting process, Bletchley Park soon became populated by a very strange and oddball collection of the new soon-to-be codebreakers: chess champions, linguists (experts in languages and the recognizition their various hidden meanings), Egyptologists (experts in ancient Egyptian language, art, and history), mathematicians, students, lawyers, university professors, crossword puzzle fanatics and other riddle-solvers. Yes, they were brilliant, unconventional, and – as genius is often viewed – they were often seen as a collection of rule-breaking eccentrics, even social misfits, perhaps what some today might refer to as ‘nerds.’ These civilian recruits often caused surrounding town folk to view them as weird and sometimes, uncomfortable to be around. In fact, archival records reveal that Bletchley’s surrounding community began to believe that this collection of unusual citizens were, in fact, from some lunatic asylum (Historian, Sinclair McKay, Ibid). One such example of eccentricity was personified by one of Bletchley Park’s most brilliant young recruits, named Alan Turing. A towering genius, Turing was a research Fellow at Cambridge College at the young age of 22. He even created the fundamental basis for the first complicated computing machine. Yet, even his colleagues said of him, “He had funny manners.” (Peter Hilton, Bletchley Park codebreaker). Nonetheless, Alan Turing was an undisputed genius “He constantly surprised us with his originality,” Hilton added. “He was very shy,” fellow

codebreaker, Sarah Baring recalls, “He used to — bless his heart — walk down to the canteen and, curiously, walk in a sideways motion with his head down. But, he was a star. We all thought he was such a wonderful person.” But Turing was not the only eccentric at Bletchley Park. In general, they all were perceived as different. Their unusual nature and odd behavior even took British Prime Minister, Winston Churchill, by surprise. Inspecting the new experiment with non-military codebreakers at Bletchley Park, on September of 1941, Churchill commented to Commander Alastair Denniston, operations head of the codebreaking school, “I told you to leave no stone unturned to get this staff, but I had no idea you had taken me so literally!” Churchill had met chess champions, Hugh Alexander and Stuart MilnerBarry, mathematicians Derek Taunt, Jack Good, Bill Tutte, and Max Newman, as well as historian Harry Hinsley, and a collection of students, puzzle fanatics and crossword experts. It was the strangest kettle of fish that Churchill had ever seen come together to represent Britain’s top secret military experiment. However, in time, they would not disappoint. They would, in fact, commence to shock the world with their unrivalled, collective genius.
Nevertheless, their often strange and idiosyncratic exploits caused the Government Code and Cypher School to nickname them “The Golf, Cheese and Chess Society.” One unique codebreaker was often seen pacing around the lake drinking coffee while in deep abstract thought. When he would finish his cup of coffee he would, suddenly, look at the empty cup in deep surprise, not remembering that he had periodically drunk from it while lost in thought, contemplating an encoded message. Unsure how the cup even came into his possession, he would simply toss it over his shoulder and into the lake.

As a whole, these newly-added civilian codebreakers were the exact opposites of their military codebreaker counterparts, in more ways than one. Aside from their unconventional behavior, they were even treated differently by the British Government Code and Cipher School. They were not required to follow military disciplines, such as uniforms, and ranks — none of which would apply to them.
Little did the world realize that this collection of whimsical individuals would become heroic in accomplishing the seemingly impossible: they would succeed in breaking the various German Enigma codes from not only the German ground forces, but also the unique Enigma codes of the Luftwaffe (German Air Force) known as Luftwaffe Red, as well as the German Naval Engima. As a consequence of all this, many key battles now shifted in our favor, and as a result, countless lives were saved within our Allied Forces. For example, breaking Germany’s Luftwaffe Red Enigma code allowed Bletchley Park to inform the British Royal Air Force (RAF) not only how the Luftwaffe was organized, but what it was planning to do in advance. Also, historians agree that the Battle of the Atlantic might have been lost if the Bletchley Park codebreakers had failed to penetrate the German’s Navy Enigma codes, all of which allowed our Armed Forces to prepare and defuse the enemy’s plans. In the summer of 1941 Bletchley Park was able to crack the German Navy’s Enigma code in less than two days. Convoys could now be re-routed on the seas, thus avoiding the deadly German U-boats. On June 23, 1941 Bletchley Park saved a British convoy from a deadly Uboat attack (involving 10 German submarines). Bletchley Park’s decoded Enigma messages even allowed the Allies to setup a

Arrest of Murder Suspects
On Friday, March 4th, the City of Carlsbad Police Department received information from the Los Angeles Police Department that two wanted murder suspects were living in the city of Carlsbad. LAPD Homicide Detectives advised Carlsbad Police Detectives that the suspects were involved in a stabbing death in the city of Los Angeles on February 20, 2016. LAPD identified the suspects as 22 year-old Michael Lee Stotler and 22 year-old Maya Sharene Mcinnis. At 5:50 p.m. officers and detectives located and stopped a vehicle being driven by Michael Lee Stotler in the 4600 block of Carlsbad Blvd. The passenger in the vehicle was Maya Sharene Mcinnis. Both suspects were arrested without incident and released to the custody of LAPD Homicide Detectives. Local Elections Heating Up
Lately, political attention has been pretty much focused at the national level as the would-be presidents jockey for position and trade insults. Locally, however, the political bonfires are being kindled as candidates emerge for contested seats.
In Oceanside there are two City Council seats up for grabs. At least six people, including the two incumbents, have declared their candidacy. Let’s have a look-see and figure out who the players are:
Councilman Jack Feller and Councilwoman Esther Sanchez are both running for re-eletion. Mayor Jim Wood is running unopposed. That may change. The balance of power is at issue. Sanchez is part of the council majority that includes Mayor Wood and Councilman Chuck Lowery. Those three were, at one time, political allies. However, Lowery declined to support two people Sanchez wanted appointed to a city panel and feelings got bruised. So, later, Sanchez declined to support a plastic bag ban Lowery had proposed and which was supported by Wood. A coolness has developed in what was once a cozy political threesome. Lowery said he has tentatively endorsed Linda Gonzales for City Council, and Wood said he also plans to support Gonzales. She is a former school superintendent who holds a doctorate in philosophy from Claremont University. “I think she’s very educated, nice person with a lot of experience,” Wood said.
The city’s official candidate nomination period begins on July 18 and closes on Aug. 7. But several people have already filed documents to create fundraising committees while others have publicly declared their candidacy.
Wood has said this would likely be the last time he runs for elected office before retiring. . . .at 6pm.

Another council candidate, Victor Roy, said he has been endorsed by Sanchez.

The other candidates are attorney James Huber and software engineer David Boarman. New $24 Million Complex In Store for Oceanside
Early next year demolition crews will knock down a building that is nearly 60-years old. Presently, it houses mental and public health services in Oceanside. But, not to worry, in its place will be a new $24 million complex which will fit in with a recent shift by the county’s Health and Human Services Agency to create one-stop Live Well Centers with a number of different services being offered out of one building. Easier on staffers, easier on their clients.. Officials said the old structure has outlived its usefulness. It was built in the late 1950s, along Mission Avenue a few blocks east of Interstate 5. Construction could begin in January and run about 18 months. The new site could be open in summer 2018, officials said. When the work is complete, the roughly 19,000-squarefoot, single-story facility will give way to a 36,000-square-foot, three-story building. complaints they’ll do something about it. Don’t bother calling local law enforcement. They can’t do anything about it. It’s out of their jurisdictions; the phone calls are probably coming from an untraceable line, possibly from the Caribbean.
There are some people who need to be taken out and shot. These rascals just might fit into that data base. ••••• Speaking of questionable characters, The Paper questioned the integrity of Jose Fragozo when he filed for election to the Escondido Union School District board seat. He had claimed an address of a small apartment in Escondido which was in the neighborhood of the district he hoped to represent. Dirty pool, we said at the time. Dirty pool, says the San Diego County District Attorney’s office, when they filed multiple felony accounts against Mr. Fragozo. We’re aware there are mixed political sentiments in Escondido concerning Mr. Fragozo. We’ve made clear our feelings as to his integrity and his qualifications to serve. The DA’s office seems to feel the same way. Fragozo is also under a restraining order that keeps him from attending school board meetings in person, relying instead on a telephone setup.

We suspect there will be some type of plea bargain in which Mr. Fragozo agrees to resign his position as a board member.
With the legal clouds hanging over his head his ability to contribute to board business is even more seriously diminished.
We, for one, will be glad to see him depart (for his permanent home up in a very nice section of Hidden Meadows, north of Escondido). In fact, there is a fair possibility he may be sent to another, less inviting, home somewhere within the California Correctional system. I think that’s where they send convicted felons. Of course, he hasn’t been convicted of anyting yet. Just indicted.
Time will tell what happens to Mr. Fragozo. Suffice it to say that most, if not all, of his problems are largely of his own making. ••••• Springtime is almost upon us and lots of honey-dos seem to crop up. Now, they can get done.

The Paper • Page 5 • March 10, 2016 Ladies in the Law
While ruminating about the fact that Supreme Court Justice, Sandra Day O’Connor, who graduated from Stanford Law School, 2nd in her class, on the Law Review, right behind William Rehnguist, no law firm in California was willing to hire her as a lawyer due to her sex, one firm did offer her a position as a legal secretary, an offer which she declined in order to pursue her aim of becoming a lawyer. Then I thought of my sister Clare, who, a graduate of USC in 1960 (the first in our family to graduate from college) was accepted at Hastings Law School, in San Francisco, 258 1st year students- only 2 women, was asked by the Dean of Hastings Law School “What are you doing here taking the place of a man who could earn a living for his family?” My wife, Becky and I know what Clare went through at Hastings because we lived with her in San Francisco, both Becky and I went to Cal Berkeley.
This condescending attitude toward women in the Law, apparently has a name with what would appear to be a long pedigree, from Wikipedia I found the following:
The Portia Hypothesis claims women with masculine-sounding names will be more successful in the leg al profession than an otherwise identical counter part. The hypothesis is named after William Shakespeare's character from the Merchant of Venice, who disguises herself as a man so she can argue as a lawyer. (See Wikipedia Author Abbas). Four years prior to passing the Bar in 1969, I worked for an Attorney Service, constantly in and out of
Courts all over Los Angeles and I saw and heard the attitudes of many Judges (all male) toward Lady Lawyers “Get out of my Court Room, I will not have a Woman Lawyer in my Court in Pants!” or “What can I do for you Hon?” or “Your Honor” the Lady Lawyer said “You granted our motion, and the Code says we are entitled to sanctions” the Judge leaned back in his chair and snarled at her “I DON’T CARE WHAT THE LAW SAYS, YOU’LL GET NO SANCTIONS IN MY COURT!” I was a Law Student and I was shocked when I heard the vitriol in his voice. Then of course there was the flamboyant, Gladys Towles Root, who was a 1930 graduate of USC Law School, who, because no other opportunities were open to her, no one would hire her, she opened her own office and took what work was immediately available to her- rape and murder cases. I saw her in Court many, many times and she cut quite a figure, always wearing huge hats to Court, I still remember seeing her, over 50 years later. She established herself as an extremely competent Lawyer.
The history of Ladies in the Law is no different from other human activitiesbefore WWII, my Mom was not considered qualified for doing anything other than domestic work-housekeeping. Then “We need you in the aircraft factory!” and my Mom like millions of other women did exceedingly well for our country - my Dad was in the military.” However, I gained another perspective from Susan L. England, an excellent Lawyer and former Judge, who went to USC both undergraduate and Law School, full scholarship, graduating from USC Law School in 1961, the fol-
lowing are some of the memories of her early days:
“My first appearance after passing the bar was to appear before the Appellate Court on a 995 motion in a criminal case. I had prepared the motion and had done the P & A’s and the argument was set by the court for a date several weeks after I was sworn in. Because I had done all the work on the case the partners allowed me to make the appearance. Again, my work in the firm was such that I never suspected any uncertainty about my abilities to handle a case because of my sex. “
“There were several instances that I found somewhat amusing at the time they occurred. The first incident occurred in the master calendar department of Los Angeles Superior Court where I was appearing on behalf of a corporate plaintiff. When the case was called, I answered : “Ready for the plaintiff, your honor.” The judge looked at me and said: “ Since the plaintiff is a corporation, it is necessary that it appear by legal counsel.” Not wanting to embarrass the judge, I replied: “That is why I am here, your honor.” The judge then said: “What I mean, Miss, is that you have to obtain an attorney to represent the corporation in this matter, an officer of the corporation cannot make the appearance.” So, I clarified that I was an attorney, having been admitted to practice the prior January, and was indeed representing the corporation in the pending matter. Looking back on the incident, I realize that the judge probably would not have made the same mistake had I been a young male attorney. Nevertheless, I have never believed that his inquiry was because he did not like female attorneys, but rather because I looked too young for the role. I made frequent appearances before that same judge over the course of the next five years and never had the impression that he was negative about women attorneys.”
“The second occurrence was one that I also believed was related to age primarily. I was appearing at an arraignment and plea in Long Beach where the defendant was an older lady. She had come to court in a nice suit and looked very professional. Although I was similarly dressed, the judge assumed she was the attorney and I was the defendant. As a result when I answered with my appearance and that we were ready to plea, the judge indicated I should let my attorney speak for me. Again, I assured him I was the attorney and the appearance continued without further difficulty.”
“The singular time when I became aware that the judge was prejudiced against women attorneys was in a Compton Municipal Court. The firm had two criminal defendants whose appearance and pleas were scheduled for the same day in front of the same judge. I had practiced about three years at the time and had made numerous appearances in criminal matters such that I was very aware of the procedure. When the first case was called I answered ready and responded with the rote responses for the appearance. The judge was very irritated with me and gave me a lot of static at each step in the proceeding. Once that defendant’s matter was completed, the judge took his mid-morning recess. I sat stewing about the appearance, wondering what I had done that caused the judge to become so irritable. The clerk observed my angst, came over, and introduced himself to me. He told me he could tell I was upset by what had occurred. I told him that my discomfort was because I could not for the life of me figure out what I had done wrong. He assured me that my appearance had been letter-perfect and that the problem was the judge who did not believe that women should be practicing law. I thanked the clerk for his help and told him how relieved I was that it was not my problem but the judge’s. That is the first and only

A New Jersey Congressman called to make reservations, ''I want to go from Chicago to Rhino, New York.'' I was at a loss for words. Finally, I said, ''Are you sure that's the name of the town?'' 'Yes, what flights do you have?'' replied the man.
After some searching, I came back with, ''I'm sorry, sir, I've looked up every airport code in the country and can't find a rhino anywhere." ''The man retorted, ''Oh, don't be silly! Everyone knows where it is. Check your map!'' So I scoured a map of the state of New York and finally offered, ''You don't mean Buffalo, do you?''

time in my career where I encountered blatant prejudice toward women in the practice of law.”
“Perhaps I am still naïve in believing that some of the actions we women perceive as prejudiced against us as women, are really just the psych warfare that is common to litigation and to which every attorney is subjected from time to time. I have never felt that I lost cases I should have won because of my sex. I have never felt that I won cases I should have lost as a result of my sex. I was amused during my early years of practice by comments made by partners in other firms that the female attorney(s) they had hired were “different”. I assume that meant that they did not show the emotionalism and lack of objectivity that were regarded as the characteristics of the female sex. All the women in my class obtained employment and were undoubtedly regarded as “different”. We were hired by men who believed that a woman was capable of practicing law and could responsibly and successfully represent their clients. They were willing to chance hiring us and giving us a chance to prove ourselves just like a new male associate would have to prove themselves. As most of my practice has been with small firms, some of which I started, my experience may be quite distinguishable from those of women who worked for larger firms or in a corporate setting. In my almost forty-eight years of practice I have been proud to be an attorney and happy with my professional life.” For far, far too long this country has not fully taken advantage of all the resources available just for the taking, and one of the most valuable of these resources is one-half of our population- women - the tremendous talents in Law, Medicine, Art, Science, etc.,etc..

So he shouts over to the bartender so loudly that everyone can hear: 'Drinks for everyone in here, bartender, but not for the Jew over there'. Soon after the drinks have been handed out, the Jew gives him a big smile, waves at him, then says: 'thank you', in an equally loud voice. This infuriates the Arab.
He once again loudly orders drinks for everyone except the Jew. As before, this does not seem to bother the Jewish guy. He continues to smile, and again yells: 'thank you'. The Arab asks the bartender: "What's the matter with that Jew? I've ordered two rounds of drinks for everyone in the bar but him, and all he does is smile and thank me." The bartender replies: 'He owns the place'. those living will hear that “President Sharon Asper has nominated Sylvia Roman to the US Supreme Court (the Chief Justice, Michelle Topper is known to have spoken well of Ms. Roman in the past) – let’s see that makes 7 woman on the US Supreme Court….in further news…”
I despise prejudice. Once, in 1965, I was severely chastised, when I worked for the Department of Employment, unemployment insurance claims in Compton, when I did not put a check in the statistics box “Black” in the race section on the intake form. Intellectually I understood the need for statistical information, but when this unemployed worker was standing before me he was just a Human Being—that is all I saw.

counter-attack, sinking two German U-boats in the process. “Codebreakers became so proficient that they would instruct the RAF to drop mines in a particular stretch of seas.” (“Decoding Nazi Secrets,” Ibid.) This allowed the British Royal Air Force (RAF) to counterstrike with pin-point accuracy since they now knew of the exact secretlocations of the submerged German submarine wolf packs that lay in deadly-waiting.
That these perceived oddballs from off the streets of Britain could use a unique vantage point of their intellect to penetrate The Third Reich’s Enigma code was quite astonishing, to say the least. Historically, how vital were these contributions of Bletchley Park? Historians are best equipped to answer such a daunting question: “The codebreakers were now not only learning about Enigma, but about the whole system of warfare communications, which had an impact on an entire military campaign.” (“Decoding Nazi Secrets,” Ibid.
Even the brilliant desert campaign of Germany’s Erwin Rommel (the Desert Fox) was thwarted by the brilliance of Bletchley Park. Rommel’s campaign depended on the Enigma communications, as he relied, totally, on the Italians to bring in critical supplies for his Panzer Army divisions. Because of Bletchley Park’s codebreaking, the RAF was able to not only pinpoint the location of any Italian oil

time and treasure to help make these homes possible.
Each month, in my continuing efforts to support and encourage local businesses, I salute a small business by designating it my Business of the Month. For the month of February, I would like to jointly honor four local businesses that have stepped up in a huge way to support severely injured veterans who have given so much to defend our nation and our individual liberties.
Recently, Homes for Our Troops (HFOT) held a ground breaking ceremony in Escondido to commemorate construction of a new home for Marine Sgt. Toran Gaal, who suffered a severe brain injury and the loss of both legs to an IED in Afghanistan.

He and his wife, Becky live in San Marcos
tankers but even know exactly how much gasoline they were carrying. The secret locations and planning of Rommel’s supply convoy gave the RAF easy targets in attacking the Italian convoys crossing the Mediterranean Sea, thus cutting off the Desert’s Fox’s critical life-line of supplies. Rommel was previously winning his desert campaign, but because of Bletchley Park’s nondescript codebreakers, Rommel was now losing because his supplies were always sunk in the Mediterranean waters. These war victories were greatly cheered by Allied Forces, but due to the ultra-secrecy surrounding Bletchley Park’s mysterious mansion, the codebreakers, themselves, remained unheralded. Nevertheless, they were content that the war was being won. For this raggle-taggle band of irregular codebreakers, winning the war was reward enough without having to be in the bright sunlight of recognition. Throughout the war, Germany periodically tweaked and reset the Engima coding machines making it necessary for the Bletchley Park codebreakers to restart their penetration efforts all over again, from scratch. It was a horrendous and taxing ordeal requiring highly unusual focus, stamina, and brain-power that only these recruits seemed capable of.
HFOT is a privately funded 5o1 (c) (3) that builds mortgage-free, specially designed homes for our nation’s most severely injured veterans. But their efforts would be fruitless without the support of many businesses and individuals that volunteer their

Companies stepping up to donate to this worthy project include Prospect Mortgage, with a locally owned office in Escondido, Budget Blinds, serving San Marcos, CertaPro Painters, also located in Escondido, and Youngren Construction of Fallbrook. These contributions of time, product, construction and financial resources are typical of the support provided by small businesses nationwide that have resulted in construction of hundreds of homes for deserving veterans like Sgt.

architects of another major victory. The British fleet was based in the Egyptian port of Alexandria, under the direction of Admiral Andrew Cunningham. A critical Enigma message was decoded in the middle of the night by Bletchley Park’s Mavis Lever, who rushed downstairs to frantically present her findings. Her decoding was towering in its impact. Within hours her decoded message was sent to Admiral Andrew Cunningham. Its contents were both shocking and frightening. The Italian fleet was planning to attack a British convoy at midnight. Since the port of Alexandria was crawling with spies, all watching every move by Admiral Cunningham, he was now in a serious dilemma. If Cunningham suddenly took his fleet out to sea, then the Italian spy network would know that their secret was decoded. If Cunningham did nothing, then a British convoy would be sent to the bottom of the sea. The spies knew the admiral loved to golf, and Cunningham used this as a crafty ruse. The admiral disembarked his ship and went on shore at Alexandria to play golf. Under the cover of darkness, Cunningham secretly slipped back on board ship and led the British fleet out to sea. Cunningham led his fleet directly to the spot where the Italian ships had gathered for their ambush. Cunningham’s British fleet caught the Italian ships completely by surprie and made them pay a heavy price. The Italians lost almost 3,000 men and the battle, which was the crème de la crème of their navy. It was another major coup by the Bletchley Park mansion codebreakers. Later, a grateful Admiral Cunningham secretly visited the sprawling acreage of Bletchley Park to personally thank the codebreakers who had averted a major naval disaster. It was thanks enough for the codebreakers. Meanwhile, the British newsreels were cheered by countless Allies when news touted “The Greatest Naval Engagement Thus Far in the War: the Battle of Matopan.” The world never knew of Churchill’s secret war weapon at Bletchley Park.
Throughout the war, over and over again, these remarkable secret codebreakers saved countless lives by derailing disasters that were planned by the enemy. Eventually, American codebreakers were flown across the Atlantic to Bletchley Park to collaborate and work with their British counterparts. But prior to this, the ponderous question still remains: how were the Bletchley Park men and women, ever able to accomplish the seemingly impossible in the first place? The German Enigma machine could scramble a message in millions upon millions of different variations. Regarding the German’s Enigma code, Tony Sale, Bletchley Park historian, said, “The complexity is enormous. If I sent just one message on an Enigma machine, today, it would still take a super great computer – the fastest in the world – a year to go through, searching for that one message to validate what that
message might have been.”
It was never easy for the Bletchley Park codebreakers. Hitler kept upgrading the Enigma machines, making the codebreakers start all over again, from square one. In response, the brilliance of Bletchley Park’s Alan Turing seemed off-the-chart. Turing invented an electromechanical devise called the “bombe,” an atonishing creation to help probe and continue decoding Hitler’s Enigma machines. It was nicknamed the bombe because of the ticking sound it produced. But then, Germany created another new coding device called the Lorenz. Bletchley’s most profound decoder, Alan Turing, soon built a rudimentary replica of Hitler’s Lorenz cipher machine. The British were simply amazing in their depth of intellectual resources. Thomas H. Flowers, a brilliant engineer at the British Post Office laboratories, created the world’s first programmable computer. Flowers installed the first programmable computer at Bletchley Park over the Christmas holidays, in 1943. Eventually, ten more were added there. These computers, collectively, would be known as Colossus. Because of the top secrecy of these proceedings, Colossus, sadly, was not recognized as the world’s first programmable computer. Instead, that historical honor went to America’s Eniac computer. The roots of today’s computer era trace back directly to the inventive geniuses of Alan Turing and Thomas Flowers. For over thirty years after the war, Bletchley Park’s contributions in winning the war remained top secret. Nevertheless, Bletchley Park’s contributions gave the Allied Forces a critical edge in the Uboat battles, the tank battles against Rommel, the Invasion of Normandy (D-Day), and many others. At war’s end, jubilation and dancing in the streets commenced with the world paying tribute to their war heroes. Sadly, Bletchley Park decoders were never mentioned. “Apart from the Atom bomb, there was no greater secret of World War II than the work of the codebreakers at Bletchley Park.” (“Decoding Nazi Secrets,” war historians, Ibid, 1999) After the war, many of these heroic decoders went back to their simple, anonymous lives.
Thomas Flowers returned to the post office and was soon forgotten. Only a few stayed on to work for the British Secret Service. The most imaginative thinker of them all, Alan Turing, sadly took his own life. In 1964 he was persecuted for being a security risk simply because he was labeled as a homosexual. Tragic, because he helped Bletchley Park’s community save hundreds of thousands of human lives, perhaps even millions. And he saved his country, and the world, in the process.
Historically, this is one of the most remarkable war stories of all time. Especially in view of the fact that these achievements were attained by ordinary civilian men and women. “When people think of winning wars, they quickly

The ‘Wild” Father of U.S. Intelligence
While the United States had spies as far back as the Revolutionary War, things didn’t get tightly organized until just before World War II.
Army Col. William J. “Wild Bill” Donovan organized the Office of Strategic Services (OSS), forerunner of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). He is recognized as the "Father of American Intelligence services.” Born in 1883, Donovan held a number of positions as soldier, lawyer, diplomat, but most famously he was an intelligence officer. A decorated veteran of World War I, Donovan is the only person to have received all four of the United States' high-
think of guns and bullets. But, I think Bletchley Park is a great example – particularly for the young generation, now – that you can defeat the enemy, intellectually.” (Tony Sale, Bletchley Park historian)
In the end, the unthinkable was realized, and the impossible was accomplished from a most ridiculous concept, and by the most unlikeliest of human beings ever gathered together. The mysterious goings-on at Bletchley Park, according to war historians, helped shorten the war in Europe by two to three years, and turned the tide of World War II and, in so doing, saved countless lives, and helped shape the history of the world. Today, Alan Turing’s brain child, the bombe, which he created to help save the world from tyranny, can still be viewed, today. In his honor and,in tribute to him, a working rebuilt bombe is preserved at the Bletchley Park Museum. It no longer makes the ticking sound, as in Turing’s first version.

Donovan was a football star at Columbia University where he was known as "Wild Bill.” Previously to World War II, Donovan traveled extensively in Europe and met with foreign leaders including Benito Mussolini of Italy. Donovan’s belief a second major war was inevitable earned him the attention of President Franklin D. Roosevelt. Germany's invasion of Poland in September 1939, was an action Donovan had predicted. Accordingly, Roosevelt gave him a number of increasingly important assignments as the U.S. prepared for war.
During 1940-41, Donovan traveled to England to assess Britain's ability to defend against Germany's aggression. Donovan met with Winston Churchill and the various directors of Britain's intelligence services. He returned to the U.S. confident of Britain's chances and developing plans for an American intelligence service modeled on the British Secret Services.
At the time, America's foreign intelligence organizations were fragmented and isolated from each other. The Army, Navy, Federal Bureau of Investigation, United States Department of State, and other interests each ran their own intelligence operations, the results of which was a reluctance to share information. The Office of Strategic Services was established by Roosevelt on June 13, 1942, charged to collect and analyze strategic information required by the Joint Chiefs of Staff and to conduct

special operations. During the War, the OSS grew to nearly 24,000 people. Donovan’s OSS eventually conducted successful espionage and sabotage operations in Europe and parts of Asia.
At the end of the War, Donovan focused on preserving the OSS. As a result of President Roosevelt's death, Donovan's political position, was substantially weakened.
Although he argued forcefully for the OSS's retention, Donovan was opposed by many, including President Harry S. Truman, who personally disliked Donovan, and J. Edgar Hoover, who saw Donovan as a threat to the FBI. Accordingly, Truman officially disbanded the OSS in September 1945, a month after Japan surrendered. For many years the operations of the OSS remained secret, but by the 1970s and 1980s, significant parts of the OSS exploits were declassified resulting in it becoming fodder for books and movies.
Having led the OSS during wartime, Donovan’s opinion was influential in forming a new service. He argued the new agency should be able to conduct covert action. Truman didn’t like that aspect, but Donovan won the argument and it was reflected in the Central Intelligence Agency Act of 1949. Maj. Gen. William “Wild Bill” Donovan, one of America’s most-decorated soldiers and civil servants, will be most remembered not only for his wartime covert actions, but his contributions in developing America’s present-day CIA. Donovan died Feb. 8, 1959, of dementia, sadly, unable to remember his fascinating life. He is buried in Arlington National Cemetery.

The pictures in my house remind me that my children used to be little and chubby but when I look at them now, they are taller than me and probably smarter too.

Most of my traumatic experiences in life have involved Escondido politics. The best days
have revolved around family and big meals. My favorite places on earth are my home, my mom’s kitchen, Cardiff State beach and any library.

Why Almost Everyone Attends Church on Easter
More people attend church on Easter Sunday than any other day of the year. Here’s why:
1. IT’S ENCOURAGING. Easter is the ultimate story of hope. Between the upbeat music, spring decorations, and hope-filled sermon, everyone leaves Easter services encouraged!
2. IT HONORS GOD. Coming to church is a way to send the message to God, “I know what you did, and I appreciate it.” 3. KIDS LOVE IT. In 24 years of conducting Easter services at our church, I have never seen a kid walk out the door without a smile
At New Song, we’re hosting EIGHT special services at our 3985 Mission Avenue location: Wednesday, March 23 – 5 p.m. Kids Carnival, 6:30 p.m. Easter Service Thursday, March 24 – 6 p.m. Seder Meal (Tickets required.

It was then that Aaron realized that there were thousands of service members on the front lines who would benefit from an ongoing supply of hygiene products, nutrition, medical supplies and gear; essential staples that would keep Americans healthy, sharp and motivated. Aaron has dedicated his life to supplying these things. For reservations to hear Aaron’s story, contact Sandy Hinds at firstname.lastname@example.org.

The Rocky Road to Win10. Part III
Parts I & II of the “Rocky Road” series traced three decades of Microsoft PC OS (operating systems) to the threshold of the Win10 release in the summer of 2015. Microsoft’s headlong rush to compete with Google’s Android and the Apple iOS in the growing mobile markets (tablets and smart phones) was the force behind the release of Win8 in Aug 2012 and Win10 last year. Win8 was basically Win7 with a touch screen UI (user interface) that Microsoft hoped would induce Windows PC users to buy Windows tablets and smart phones. The touch screen style Win8 UI was worse than useless for most mouse and keyboard users and triggered a three year tailspin in PC sales without increasing Microsoft’s share of the mobile business. To make matters worse, in 2014

In August of 2015 Microsoft was looking at three big problems. Its core business, the sale of PC OS, was in long term decline. Everyone hated its newest OS, Win 8 and it was actually losing ground in its effort to become a player in the mobile Internet arena.
Mobile devices (tablets smart phones) passed stationary devices (notebooks, desktops) in Internet access in 2014. The company that controls the operating system on device browsing the WWW has the inside track on advertising and access revenue. The Windows OS controlled 92% of PCs accessing the Internet but less than 3% of mobile devices. With PCs losing ground to mobiles, Microsoft needed to play catch up.

Microsoft doesn’t need to concern itself with customer wants, needs or prices. With over 90% of the worlds

PC OS, it has virtual monopoly and its customers have no viable alternative. Sure there is Apple with 7% of the PC market but Microsoft knows that few of its customers would ever go over to the “dark side.” Even during the dismal days of Windows ME, Vista and 8, few PC users jumped ship. Microsoft has long been free to pursue its own agenda without regard to the impact it may have on its users. If Microsoft had competition there would not have been Win 8 or 10, we would still be using Windows 7 (as 50% of home and 90% of businesses users still do). PC users have been forced to spend billions on senseless
tures, stained glass, ceramics, fine jewelry, photography, and more. The festival, free to the public, has planned live stage performances, hands-on activities for children and adults, street chalk art making, painting and sculpture demonstrations, and a variety of edibles at the food court. Applications for artists are now being accepted, and booth fees are at their lowest price now but will be going up soon. Download the 2016 Artist Application Form, and for additional information and booth fees, go to www.ocaf.info, email inquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org. All proceeds from this festival will provide scholarships to graduating high school seniors from all of North San Diego County who are pursuing artistic and performing arts degrees, and to organize more quality events in Oceanside.

changes and upgrades because of Microsoft’s frantic pursuit of a larger share of mobile device OS, all at PC users expense.
Windows10 itself offers no significant benefits to Win7 or Win8 users. Win10 is essentially a stripped down version of Win7 so that it fits as an OS on cell phones and tablets. Win 10 is a lot like Win7 and is the only OS available on new PCs in retail stores. Businesses continue to buy Win7 Pro on their new PCs. Whether or not you should “upgrade” from Win7 or 8 to Win 10 is a bit more complicated. We will cover that issue in “Rocky Road IV” next week.

The petition requests the decedent’s will and codicils, if any, be admitted to probate. The will and any codicils are available for examination in the file kept by the court. The amended petition requests authority to administer the estate under the Independent Administration of Estates Act.

The independent administration authority will be granted unless an interested person files an objection to the petition and shows good cause why the court should not grant the authority. A hearing on the petition will be held in this court as follows: Date: 4/19/2016 Time: 11 a. m. Dept: PC-1 Address of court: Same as noted above. If you object to the granting of the petition, you should appear at the hearing and state your objections or file written objections with the court before the hearing. Your appearance may be in person or by your attorney. If you are a creditor or a contingent creditor of the decedent, you must file your claim with the court and mail a copy to the personal representative appointed by the court within the later of either (1) four months from the date of first issuance of letters to a general personal representative, as defined in Section 58(b) of the California Probate Code, or (2) 60 days from the date of mailing or personal delivery to you of a notice under section 9052 of the California Probate Code. Other California statues and legal authority may affect your rights as a creditor. You may want to consult with an attorney knowledgeable in California law. You may examine the file kept by the court. If you are a peson interested in the estate, you may file with the court a Request for Special Notice (form DE-154) of the filing of an inventory and appraisal of estate assets or of any petition or account as provided in Probate Code section 1250. A Request for Special Notice form is available from the court clerk.
