Ah, California! The Golden State, indeed. As a native Californian, myself, I can’t help puffing up like a stepped-on toad in boasting about my home state. Yep, there’s no mistaking California for any other state in the Union. The The Paper Paper -- 760.747.7119 760.747.7119

Impossible.

You know you’re in California when the fastest part of your morning commute is backing down your driveway. And that even though you make over $250,000 a year, you still can’t afford a house. The only California houses on the market for less than a million

dollars are those on fire. Those currently go for six hundred thousand dollars.

I love the California lifestyle. When I was 12 years old I went through the obligatory California rite-of-passage: I skateboarded. I skin-dived off the beautiful, world-famous La Jolla Shores, and marveled at my older

brother’s surfing skills (he was so adept at surfing that at one point he gave surfing lessons to a gorgeous femme fatale California girl). I’m not certain to this day if she paid him for her lessons or if he paid her for the privilege. But, I digress.

California Humor Cont. from Page 1

I’m a California boy, born and bred. Which means I often offend other people who live elsewhere and are vacationing here. Oh, I never meant to offend anyone on purpose. And that’s the God’s truth. It just came out that way from a 14-year-old Calbred beach bum that I was. I recall quite vividly when tourists were watching my beach friends and I out at Solana Beach cavorting about on surfboards when they approached us with some excitement. We asked them where they were from. When anybody told us what state they were visiting from, my cohorts and I always asked the same question: “Why do you live there?” True story.

One time a tourist from Rhode Island came up to my skin-diving buddy, Seamus Riley, and went off on him: “God! You Californians really piss me off! Whenever I say I’m from Rhode Island, you guys just ask me why! Like, why do I live somewhere that isn’t in California!” We were 15 or 16 at the time and just blinked back at him, totally confused. To this day, we have no idea why anyone in Rhode Island would want to live in Rhode Island. Chalk it up to the innocence of youth. We just didn’t know better. How could we California boys ever be able to comprehend how anyone could possibly choose to live elsewhere? It’s paradise here!

Give Us This Day Our Daily Chuckle This week, a compendium of wit, wisdom and neat stuff you can tell at parties. Enjoy!

I recently hosted a dinner party for many of our old friends, some of who we hadn't seen for years. Everyone was encouraged to bring their children and grandchildren along as well.

All throughout dinner, Emma, my wife's best friend's four-year-old granddaughter kept staring at me.

This beautiful little girl could hardly eat her food for staring at me.

I checked my shirt for spots, felt my face for food and patted my hair in place, but nothing stopped her from staring at me. Finally I asked her, "Emma, why are you staring at me so?"

Everyone at the table had noticed her behavior also, and the table went quiet, waiting for her response.

Little Emma said, "I just wanna see how you drink like a fish."

You know you’re a Californian because you can go to the beach in the middle of winter. You still have tan lines in December. You begin most important sentences with “Dude.” And your parents live on two major fault lines and their house is still worth a million dollars. I was the only Native American among my group of friends. They were a mixed bag of European origin, but, those were fighting words: they were native Californians, born and bred – that was our anthem and our bragging rights. Coincidentally, in California all your friends have the same first name: Dude. Californians are just vastly different folk. Inside-and-out. Our culture is far more different than, say, Nebraska from New York, or Seattle from Louisiana, Boston from Texas. Chicago television producer and comedy writer, Allan Sherman, pointed out the vast difference when he said: “Adultery, which is the only grounds for divorce in New York, is not grounds for divorce in California. As a matter of fact, adultery in Southern California is grounds for marriage.”

Even the Frederick’s of Hollywood stores out here are vastly different from other Frederick’s of Hollywood stores around the country. New York’s syndicated columnist and author, Dave Barry, says Frederick’s of Hollywood stores (in California) have, “Lingerie so sheer that you can read an appliance warranty through it in an unlit closet.” The following was overheard at a recent "high society" party. "My ancestry goes back all the way to Alexander the Great," said Christine. She then turned to Miriam and asked, "How far back does your family go?" "I don't know," replied Miriam, "All of our records were lost in the flood." The 60th High School Reunion

He was a widower and she a widow.

They had known each other for a number of years, having been high school classmates and having attended class reunions in the past, without fail.

This 60th anniversary of their class, the widower and the widow made a foursome with two other singles. They had a wonderful evening, their spirits high, with the widower throwing admiring glances across the table . . . and the widow smiling coyly back at him. Finally during one dance, he picked up courage to ask her, "Will you marry me? After about 6 seconds of careful consideration, she answered, "Yes.... yes I will!"

Needless to say, the evening ended on a happy note for the widower. However, the next morning he was troubled. Did she say Yes or did she say No? He couldn't remember. Try as he would, he just could not recall. He went over-and-over the conversation of the previous evening, but his mind was blank. He remembered asking the question, but for the life of him could not recall her response.

Yup. California is far, far more different than other U. S. states are from each other. If it’s sprinkling in California, especially Southern California, there’s a report on every SoCal news station about a “STORM WATCH!”

In California, you can be moved to tears if you see a really great parking space next to Walmart. Also, if you’re in 3rd grade, your teacher has purple hair, a nose ring, and her name is “Breeze.” We California natives are just a completely different species altogether. We think radically different from residents of other states. We act differently. We even talk a different type of English. Basically, other English speakers don’t understand our English. We often say things like: “How gnar was that s—t?” or “Friedrich was hella butthurt so he just bailed.” Home-grown Californians don’t like other people from different states trying to act or talk like us. Especially out-of-state girls who find it “trendy” to do a Valley Girl accent. Also, no true native Californian ever dares to refer to our state as “Cali.” Or ever call San Francisco “Frisco,” despite what you see and hear in the movies. That’s an outright butt-buster, right there. Also, we can pronounce the cities of La Jolla and Cahuenga, correctly. Native Californians also consider flip-flops appropriate for most occasions. For weddings and funerals, we wear fancy sandals. But, even in the

dead of winter, we have flip-flop tan lines on our feet cause our weather here is jamungus. (Note: I normally clean up my true vocabulary and California vernacular when writing articles for The Paper or when conversing with pastors, ministers, or elderly Mormons and Jehovah Witnesses with pacemakers.) Also, you know when you’re from California because your waiter is an out-of-work actor. And so is your car mechanic. And chiropractor. Also, everybody you know has written a screenplay. And you truly believe in your heart that your guacamole recipe is so much better than everyone else’s. Also, if you’re a surfer, you consider tacos and burritos major food groups. And when abroad, you miss Mexican food more than family and friends.

You know you’re in California because you know how to surf, skateboard, and chase skirts, as well as what jargon to use when engaging in each of these activities. If you like a girl, major pickup lines only in L. A. and San Diego are: “Wanna go to InN-Out Burger?” or “I’ll always choose a spot behind you in yoga class.”

California girls are movie-star beautiful, even after coming out of the ocean surf, completely without makeup on. Trust me, like the Beach Boys song “California Girls,” I’ve genuinely been around the United States, Europe, Mexico, China, Philippines,

With fear and trepidation, he picked up the phone and called her. First, he explained that he couldn't remember as well as he used to. Then he reviewed the past evening. As he gained a little more courage, he then inquired of her, "When I asked if you would marry me, did you say .Yes or did you say No?

The widower was delighted. He felt his heart skip a beat.

Then the priest comes in.

"Why you silly man, she replied, I said Yes. Yes I will! And I meant it with all my heart!" Then she continued. "And I'm so glad you called, because I couldn't remember who asked me.” •••• The Republicans strongly believe in sex after marriage, but not with their wives. •••• A young boy enters a barber shop and the barber whispers to his customer, 'This is the dumbest kid in the world. Watch while I prove it to you.' The barber puts a dollar bill in one hand and two quarters in the other, then calls the boy over and asks, 'Which do you want, Dan?' The boy takes the quarters and leaves the dollar. 'What did I tell you?' said the barber. 'That kid never learns!'

Later, when the customer leaves, he sees the same young boy coming out of the ice cream store & says: 'Hey, Danny! May I ask you a question? Why did you take the quarters instead of the dollar bill?' The boy licked his cone and replied, 'Because the day I take the dollar, the game's over!'

Inside he finds a fully equipped bar with Guinness on tap.

On one wall there's a row of decanters with fine Irish whiskey and Waterford crystal glasses. On the other wall is a dazzling array of the finest cigars and chocolates. "Father, forgive me, for it's been a very long time since I've been to confession, but I must first admit that the confessional box is much more inviting than it used to be."

The priest replies: "Get out, you moron, you're on my side!" •••• When it comes to hard work, I'm always willing to go the extra mile to avoid it at all costs. •••• Hello darkness my old friend, it's time to buy new bulbs again. •••• A prominent surgeon, who was a member of operating teams at both St. Francis Hospital and Christ Hospital in the Chicago area, would operate in the morning, then field calls about his patients in the evening.

Dear Readers: This may end up happening to you or someone you know, and I wanted you to be aware of the Medicare Scam: Here's what you need to know to protect yourself, family and friends throughout the US. Starting April 1, 2018, Medicare will start a year long project to replace all current Medicare cards for beneficiaries to convert to alphanumeric ID numbers. Currently the ID number is your social security number. This is starting to hit the media. Scammers are opportunistic - First of all the new Medicare card will come to you in the mail. You don't need to request it or do anything. It will show up.

Here’s the Scam! Somebody from "MEDICARE" will call to tell you you are getting a new Medicare card. But until it comes you will need a temporary card. Fee for the card is between $5-50 dollars. They want personal information, bank account or credit card so they can process your temporary card. THINGS TO REMEMBER - Medicare will never call you unless you ask them to.

and Japan – and nothing compares with our California beach bunnies! When my great grandpa heard about the sexual revolution on California college campuses, he tried to reenroll in college. (Even though my grandma told him that at his age the sexual urge only comes in the form of arthritis.) I have been the luckiest person in the world to have dated some of the most beautiful girls in the world. Redheads, blue heads, purple heads, brunettes, brownettes, blondes, and platinum blondes.

And you know you’re a Californian because you’ve asked at least one female friend: “Are those real or fake?”

And by the way, a true California boy has no idea how to ride a public bus. The only people who ride buses in L. A. and San Diego are out-of-towners, transplants, domestic household workers, and people with pending DUIs. If you do ever ride a bus, you’d be shocked at hearing two people carrying on a conversation in English.

All California natives know at least one able-bodied person with a “Disabled” sign on their dashboard, which allows access to prime handicapped parking at stores, restaurants, sports, and concert events. Home-grown Californians also don’t know how to tolerate cold weather. Particularly in L. A. and San Diego.

Cold weather makes us panic, especially when the temperature dips below 65. Anything below 50 has us staying indoors with the heater on.

And all California residents have a basic understanding of Spanish, even if they’ve never taken it in school.

The California culture is just shockingly different than any other. For instance, at the DMV, all Southern California applications for a driver’s license have the following questions: 1. Name and Stage Name? 2. Agent and Attorney? 3. Sex: Male, Female, Formerly Male, Formerly Female, Both. 4. If female, indicate breast implant size. 5. Will the size of your breast implants hinder your ability to drive safely? 6. List brand of cell phone. 7. If you don’t own a cell phone, please explain. 8.

My grandpa is a mega old-fashioned Californian and always talks about the “Good Ol’ Days” when everybody knew who was gay -- just two people: Liberace and Little Richard.

For true Californians, born-and-bred, someone’s sexuality is not important to us. Honoring the American flag is. One of my best skin-diving buddies, Joey Stafford, always read and talked a lot about the American Civil War. He said his great grandfather fell at Gettysburg – he tripped over one of the monuments there as a tourist.

Talking about the Civil War, none of us, including pal Joey, could ever figure out how any war could be called “civil.”

All true native Californians know that there is a historical rivalry between SoCal and NorCal (Southern California and Northern California). It’s not just the temperature that’s different, it’s also the slang and attitudes. So, know your allegiance.

Arnold Schwarzenegger both served as governor of California. Even though Reagan and Schwarzenegger weren’t native Californians – they made up for it by just being movies stars. But, grandpa liked California governor, Edmund “Pat” Brown (1959-67) better. When I asked him why, grandpa shifted his weight and said, “Well, when Edmund Brown was governor we didn’t have any earthquakes.”

And speaking of earthquakes, they don’t bother California natives – we use earthquakes to help stir our coffee. Or, if you’re with a voluptuous, buxom female friend, a 4.3 magnitude earthquake can visually make your day. A comedian once said: “The California lifestyle is so unique that California now plans to have their own airline called ‘Hooter’s Airlines.’ Hooter’s Airlines will be the only airline where passengers will actually pray for turbulence.”

As a California boy, I was never a religious sort. But, I always thought it was cool that the Pope sometimes wore a white, 3-foot high coneshaped hat with embedded rhinestones on it. When I was 8 years old my friend, Jimmy Langston, said that the Pope once came to San Diego (he never did) and that his tall, coneshaped hat blew-off when he was jetskiing on San Diego’s Mission Bay. Jimmy swore on a stack of Bibles that the Pope’s cone-shaped hat was never found. I believed him, and every

The Paper • Page 4 • March 15, 2018 Homicide/Suicide Investigation

On March 6, 2018 at 6:31 p.m., the Carlsbad Police Communications Center received a 911 call from a male reporting that he was going to commit suicide in the 2500 block of Navarra Dr. in the City of Carlsbad. Carlsbad Police Officers responded to the area and located a 71 year old deceased male and a 79 year old deceased female, both had suffered visible gunshot wounds. A handgun was recovered at the scene. Both the male and female are residents of Carlsbad. Their names are being withheld pending notification of the next of kin by the San Diego County Medical Examiner’s Office. The preliminary investigation tends to indicate that the male and female were married to each other and each were suffering from a different medical condition. There are no outstanding suspects in this investigation at this time. Carlsbad Police Detectives responded to the scene and are continuing the investigation. Serious Injury Traffic Collision

On March 5, 2018 at 4:49 p.m., Officers from the City of Carlsbad Police Department responded to area of Carlsbad Blvd. and Avenida Encinas regarding a report of a serious injury collision. Upon arrival, officers found that a Subaru

Outback, operated by a male driver, had backed into a female pedestrian, causing serious injuries to her. The Carlsbad Fire Department arrived and provided advanced life support to the female pedestrian. The pedestrian was subsequently transported to an area hospital for further medical treatment.

The preliminary investigation suggests that the driver of the vehicle was backing up northbound in the southbound Bike lane of Carlsbad Blvd, just south of Avenida Encinas. As the driver backed into the intersection of Carlsbad Blvd. and Avenida Encinas, he struck the female pedestrian. Alcohol is not believed to be a contributing factor in the collision. The driver was identified as a 48 year-old male from Encinitas. The pedestrian was identified as a 62 year-old female from Carlsbad. Traffic Officers responded to the scene to conduct a full investigation. State of the City Addresses from Mayors Abed and Desmond

The good news is that both Escondido and San Marcos are in good shape.

much stronger, and is finalloy gaining some weight.

He’s under doctor’s orders to stay home, rest up, and build his strength. But, those of us who know Charlie know that he’ll be back at the restaurant sooner rather than later. The man is dedicated to his business, his patrons and his staff.

And we’re all anxious to see him back in action (but we also urge him to slow down a bit and take it a bit easier).

Man About Town

HOORAY!

Charlie’s back!

Long time pal and brilliant restaurateur, Charlie Mitich, owner of Charlie’s Restaurant in Escondido, has recovered from successful surgery and is home resting (however, he showed up at the restaurant last Friday - but onlyfor a few hours.)

We were aware of his impending surgery but had not commented on it in this column out of respect for his privacy. Charlie had a bit of a problem with his ticker and faced the prospect of open heart surgery which, at his age (he’s in his late middle earlies) was a daunting prospect. Thanks to a brilliant team of surgeons, nurses, and staff, they were able to utilize a less invasive procedure and solve his problem.

I spoke with him by phone and he assured me he’s feeling much better,

Insiders know that The Paper has been successfully publishing for 19 years thanks to The Birthday Girl, one Evelyn Madison.

I scribble. That’s my contribution to The Paper. She’s the brains and the moving force behind this here publication. She writes the Social Butterfly column, seeing to it that all the civic and service clubs have the publicity they need to put fannies in seats for their various events, she keeps all the books, handles all of the legal announcements, makes sure we pay our bills and, hopefully, see to it that we get paid for our efforts as well.

On top of that she’s in charge of keeping me organized (probably her most difficult job).

He pointed out, however, that there are some obstacles to deal with, namely homelessness populations and the city pension liability.

He pointed out the city has 35 projects for $1.5 billion investment and zoning regulations are being streamlined to enhance development progress. He pointed out there were 2200 new businesses since 2010 when he was first elected.

Meanwhile, in his final State of the City address, San Marcos Mayor Jim Desmond was equally optimistic about San Marcos present and future

“We’ve had great success in governance, business, education, and public safety,” he said. He cited the city’s fiscally conservative policies whichhas allowed the city to invest in infrastructure. Desmond and his staff have managed to forge solid partnerships with major players and corporate supporters such as Tri-City Hospital, Palomar Health, North County Health Services and the San Marcos Chamber of Commerce. “It’s been a wonderful 10 years and an honor to serve you and the community,” he said, to a standing ovation. Evelyn’s Happy Birthday. I had flown in the Mormon Tabernacle Choir who awakened her with a morning songfest; this was followed by the United States Marine Band performing a wonderful band concert.

After the music had faded and the entertainers had left the area, I handed her a red rose. True, it was a bit wilted, but, hey! It was on sale! Happy Birthday to a very special lady, Ms. Evelyn Madison. ••••• Speaking of special ladies, I bumped into a very dapper Rosa Ruiz recently at the Assistance League Resale store in East Valley Parkway.

He is one tremendously talented dentist - and not only in dentistry but he has that special talent of finding top notch staff and hiring them.

Dear Lyle,

In regards to the recent shootings of children in school there can be only one answer. Every American Citizen must surrender any and all firearms, regardless of type. This would also apply to persons in this country illegally, and visitors here from foreign countries. Penalties for failure to comply with these regulations should be severe punishment. At that point we can all sit back and watch crime in America virtually disappear!

That’s my kind of dentist! ••••• Had some errands to do in San Marcos last week and when lunch time rolled around I found myself visiting a new sushi place. Ahi Tuna, 157 N Twin Oaks Valley Rd, San Marcos, CA · (760) 761-0238.

Prices are more than reasonable and the servings generous. I had the 4 piece sushi luncheon special that came with California roll and a cup of delicious Miso Soup - all for $8.95. Tasty, filling, delicious, yummy . . . all the superlatives you want to use for a sushi bar. I’ll go back. One caution: if you have a business meeting or want to have a quiet atmosphere where you can talk - Ahi Sushi is not it.

It’s noisy. Lots of folks enjoying food and conversation. That’s getting to be more and more of a problem for me . . . finding a nice restaurant with good food and good prices . . . but also with a quiet atmosphere.

We do a lot of our business with clients while at lunch or breakfast and, so often, it’s hard for me to carry on a conversation in a noisy restaurant. I have hearing aids but the ambient noise is often a problem.

time my parents picnicked at Ski Beach, I always took time to look for it. I found out later that Jimmy Langston exaggerated a whole lot. He once told me that the Beverly Hills Fire Department here in California is so rich that they use Perrier water to put out their fires.

Speaking of Beverly Hills, it was comedian Jack Benny who said: “Even the Beverly Hills police department is so snobbish and fancy that it has an unlisted telephone number.” Yup, California has a very rich legacy. True ones, not just those made up by my friend Jimmy Langston or Jack Benny.

For example, Dan Quayle, our 44th U. S. Vice President, once said: “I love California -- I practically grew up in Phoenix.” (Actual speech to California delegates, August 17, 1988, prior to becoming Vice President in 1989.) Yeah, I know, it didn’t make any sense to us Californians, either.

Poor Dan Quayle. He never recovered from his stranger-than-strange California remark. He tried valiantly to rectify his California mistake, but, in backing up he inadvertently knocked over another apple cart and only managed to make matters worse when he blurted out: “I made a misstatement and I stand by all my mis-

It was during this apologetic that he managed to, somehow, dig himself still deeper into a verbal hole: “We don’t want to go back to tomorrow, we want to move forward.”

Because of Dan Quayle’s odd speeches, grandpa became ever-more convinced that he was really a reformed California surfer. My grandpa sent away for a Dan Quayle calendar and read the January quote out loud: “The Holocaust was an obscene period in our nation’s history. No, not our nation’s, but in World War II. I mean, we all lived in this century. I didn’t live in this century, but in this century’s history.” (Speaking at a Press Conference, September 15, 1988. Printed in The New Yorker, October 10, 1988, page 102. Also, later paraphrased in Esquire Magazine, August 1992 issue.)

It was Hollywood comedian Moritz “Moray” Amsterdam who counseled: “If you find yourself in a hole – stop digging!” Others chimed in with a Confuciuslike philosophy to Vice President Dan Quayle: “Close mouth gather no feet.”

Unfortunately, Mr. Quayle chose not to heed such good advice and continued onward (or should I say, downward), creating new verbal pratfalls that made Porky Pig sound eloquent. Speaking on behalf of the United Negro College Fund, whose motto is “A mind is a terrible thing to waste,” Quayle commented to a thunderstruck gathering (in the flesh and via newscasts): “What a terrible thing to have lost one’s mind. Or, not to have a mind at all. How true that is.” That’s when my grandpa sat up and bellowed: “Is that boy from California?!”

Perhaps the unique California air was too intoxicating for such a nonCalifornia resident as Dan Quayle. After all, shortly afterward he, hollered: “It isn’t pollution that’s harming the environment!! It’s the impurities in our air and water that are doing it!!” (Quoted in the Los Angeles Times, May 21, 1989.)

By the way, Dan Quayle’s dubious talent for speech-making, tickled an entire nation of Americans. To the

For example, it happened to popular radio host, Rush Limbaugh. America’s most powerful and highest-rated radio talk show, “The Rush Limbaugh Show,” was the scene of

As in Dan Quayle’s speeches, just the topic of California has been known to, inadvertently, get high-profile people into deep trouble.

California youth can be the source of great mischief, with full intent -- but I don’t think Dan Quayle truly intended to throw a bag of rattlesnakes into a crowd of people every time he spoke.

Though he profusely apologized, it was too late, the whole world now knows Rush Limbaugh’s viewpoint on feminine beauty as being unmatched in the Golden State of California. His apology was akin to trying to put squeezed-out toothpaste back into the tube. For all its follies, twists, and humorous turns, California remains the most popular state in the whole United States of America. By far and away, it is the most populated state with more and more people choosing to relocate here in record numbers, each and every year. During the recent nationwide 2016 official census, the Golden State of California stands alone at the summit with

What a bombshell that proved to be.

almost 40-million residents!

When I was in uniform overseas, especially in Europe with my shipmates, who were from all parts of the United States from New York to Florida, Boston to Oregon, Montana to Texas, every foreigner instantly gravitated towards me, a California boy, and wanted to know about Hollywood, San Francisco, Disneyland, and San Diego County’s world-famous beaches, zoo, Sea World and other tourist destinations. The first thing they would say to me was usually: “Wow! You’re from California?! Do you surf?! Have you been to Hollywood and have you ever seen any movie stars?” One star-struck Englishman calmly inquired of me with a thick, measured accent: “Is it true that Marilyn Monroe was filmed in the classic comedy movie ‘Some Like It Hot’ at the Hotel Del Coronado in San Diego County?” Hoping to deflect my attention back towards my shipmates I answered demurely: “Yes, she did – but, a lot of people said she wasn’t a very good actress.” Without a pause he snapped back: “Bloody hell, who cares if she could act or not?!”

I don’t make the rules, so please refrain from “shooting the messenger,” but fact is fact. California is a dream topic to our neighbors overseas. According to official U. S. Tourist statistics, foreigners rate the following American states as the most popular places to visit, in transmission order: California, Florida, Nevada (specifically, Las Vegas), Texas, and New York. Apologies to the Big Apple.

The paramount popularity of our Golden State (and the beautiful girls) is impossible to ignore, by all accounts. California’s $2.717-trillion economy is larger than any other U. S. state. In fact, if California were a country – it would be the 5th largest economic country on Earth!

Despite all the jokes, jibes, and ribbing, California still remains the magnet to the world. As celebrated author and teacher, Carolyn See, states: “California is the repository of America’s dreams, a place that is to America what America is to the rest of the world.” The esteemed, world-respected writer continues onward in her California evaluation, stating that at one time, European immigrants dreamed to go through Ellis Island, New York, and then take roots there or other eastern states. No longer.

European immigrants now continue to flood in from the Old World, but – these new European immigrants now dream to continue westward, out of the east. As Carolyn See writes: “There is a whole quality of hope here that the future is still open-ended. In the way that people (used to) come to America.” (Carolyn See’s

remarks are cited in Barbara Isenberg’s brilliantly-written masterpiece book, “State of the Arts: California Artists Talk About Their Work,” Published by William Morrow, in 2000.) In it, artist, Ace Antonio Hall, says: “To capture a California sunset in South Pasadena is to hold an angel’s wings with bated breath.” And one of America’s greatest authors, Mark Twain, fell in love with California, during the winter he spent at Angel’s Camp (in Amador County) where he wrote his world popular “The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County.” As a native California boy who spent seemingly endless summers horseback riding in the beautiful Cuyamaca Mountains, or skin diving in the great Pacific Blue exploring the 75-million-year-old La Jolla Caves (all 7 caves, except for one, are only accessible from the ocean, not by land), life was breathtaking.

I remember paddle-boarding on warm moonlit evenings on San Diego’s Mission Bay with my teen friends. Under the bright moon, we’d talk of how we were living the California Dream. Even at a young age we knew Southern California was a most rare place, where you could either surf or snow ski – in the same afternoon. Even our Los Angeles smog is legendary, and something to joke about.

Bi-Partisanship in Sacramento

Representing everyone in my district and creating solutions that work for all requires working together with my colleagues of both parties in the Legislature. This session I joined several legislators across the aisle to jointly author bills that will benefit millions of Californians. The sexual harassment issue has deservedly received a great deal of attention, resulting in two bills I have introduced with Democratic colleagues. Assembly Bill 1870, introduced with Assemblymembers Eloise Gómez Reyes (D – San Bernardino) and Laura Friedman (D –Glendale), will extend the statute of limitations for sexual harassment claims from one to three years for both public and private employees. In addition, AB 1750, which I have authored with Assemblyman Kevin McCarty (D – Sacramento), will hold sexual harassment perpetrators financially accountable for their actions and will protect taxpayers so that they will no longer be on the hook to pay the penalties for inappropriate acts of elected officials. I have also joined Assemblymember Autumn Burke (D – Inglewood) to introduce AB 2342, to ensure that women who are considered high-risk for having a BRCA gene mutation High Schools can also check out copies at their school library. Rule #7: Always get payback… Max Cobb has always thought of himself as just your average teen. After he and four of his fellow schoolmates fall for a prank by the school’s legendary Chaos Club, Max uses his knowledge of heist movies to create elaborate pranks in order to draw out and expose the members of the club. In his quest for vengeance, things begin to spiral out of control and just before Max decides that things have gone too far, secrets are revealed that change everything. Let the prank war begin! After discussing Don’t Get Caught, teens can share other books they have enjoyed, select the next Burritos & Book Club title and take part in a scavenger hunt based on the book. Complimentary burritos will be provided, and all participants receive a free book or audiobook at the end of the program. This program is generously sponsored by the Friends of the Escondido Public Library and Taco Bell located at 1944 E. Valley Parkway in Escondido. Library programs, events, and services are free and open to the public. The Library is located at 239 S. Kalmia St, Escondido, 92025.

Lastly, I have joined with Assemblymember Eduardo Garcia (D – Coachella) to author AB 1944, involving water rights in the San Luis Rey Valley Groundwater Basin. The bill respects all water rights under federal and state law, including federally reserved Indian water rights, and aligns updated knowledge of groundwater basins with the requirements of California’s new groundwater management plan. These are just a few examples of bipartisanship in Sacramento. Despite media hype and some welldeserved attention to hot-button issues, legislators from both parties often come together to pass legislation that benefits all Californians.

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.

Bob Hope laughingly said, “Everybody knows what California smog is – that’s fog with the vitamins removed.” Smog riddles here are plentiful: “What happens when the smog lifts: UCLA.”

But, I like best what Kim Stanley Robinson wrote in his multi-award winning “Three California Trilogy.” On his drive from UCSD here in San Diego County north to Orange County, California to visit his parents, these words of inspiration suddenly came upon him like an epiphany: “I grew up in a utopia. I did. California when I was a child was a child’s paradise. I was healthy, well fed, well clothed, well housed. I went to school and there were libraries with all the world in them, and after school I played in orange groves and in Little League and in the band and down at the beach and every day was an adventure . . . I grew up in utopia.”

I remember beautiful hot summers in San Diego County. My older brother, Mario, fishing far north at Lake Hodges with the Irish twins, Jimmy and Jerry Sweeney, all in their teen years. And sitting in the bleachers as a 9-year-old kid watching my same older brother, Mario, playing Little League in his coveted Cudahy baseball team uniform. For me, it was like sitting behind the dugout, watching DiMaggio or Mantle hit one out of the ball park. It didn’t happen that way, of course, but for a 9-year-old, all life seems bigger and more magical than when we become adults. Ann Prachett, writing in the Magician’s Assistant, said these words: “If you’ve had a good gin (or frosted ice-cold margarita) on a hot day in Southern California with the people you love, you forget Nebraska. The two things cannot coexist. The stronger, better of the two wins.”

I like the way Ann Prachett writes. It’s as though she has read aloud from my diary of life, since age 9. As if she had been peeking over my shoulder during my upbringing, seeing, feeling, experiencing the things I grew up with, all rooted in the California lifestyle. And all my friends I’ve attached to my life. And those I’ve lost through war overseas.

Once, when all my rowdy friends and I were at a sunny Padres baseball game, we pooled our meager funds together to eke out enough for each of us to get a hotdog, a soda, and a hot bag of peanuts. There was a very old man who sat behind us, maybe in his mid-80s, whose acquaintance we made. The elderly man, named Karl Fletcher, was a dyed-in-the-wool Padres fan who went to every home game since he became a widower; sitting alone in the bleachers, hoping to catch that once-in-a-lifetime baseball hit into the stands.

He never caught one. Never even came close. But there he would sit, in his twilight years, always wearing his catcher’s mitt, ever-hopeful. Sadly, he knew he was on borrowed time.

I don’t remember the exact day on the calendar, but, on one particularly hot

afternoon there was a crack of the bat and a baseball came sailing way out, far, far into our direction! In total disbelief, and complete silence, our eyes followed its trajectory, our collective breaths put on hold -- not daring to breathe outward. Like a slowmotion dream, we couldn’t believe what was happening, even while it was happening. Amazingly, that coveted white ball continued straight in our direction and bounced off the glove of my good friend, Steve Tatum! It bounced off the very tip of his glove and, miraculously, fell into mine! Stunned, with everyone in the stands looking in our direction and applauding, I slowly looked down at this priceless white-stitched bauble I was holding. I was in a dream-state. Then it happened.

I slowly turned around and dropped the ball into the old man’s shaking glove. He stared at it, then looked up at me, tears in his eyes. His lips parted, then trembled, but, he was unable to speak. Only a bright smile creased his aged face, from ear-to-ear.

My friend, Billy Johnston, screamed at me: “ARE YOU FREAKIN’ CRAZY!!! DO YOU REALIZE THAT IS A ONCE-IN-A-LIFETIME EXPERIENCE?!!!” Without looking back at my buddy Billy, I kept looking at the elderly man clasping the baseball close to his heart. That’s when I answered my friend’s question, not taking my eyes off the old man: “Yeah, I know. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime experience.”

Historically Speaking by Tom Morrow

The Architects of America

Editor’s Note: This is the first of a sixpart Historically Speaking series about the men who created the backbone of American industry, which built our nation. First up, the man who built the railroads: Cornelius Vanderbilt. The ‘Commodore’ at the Helm

He spawned one of America’s first influential and powerful industrial families throughout the 19th and into the 21th centuries. Cornelius Vanderbilt, known as “The Commodore,” was America’s first multi-millionaire shipping and railroad magnate as well as a philanthropist who built his enormous wealth in railroads and shipping.

Through all of this, the sweet and the sour of life, I still flash back to warm, lazy summer days when I had no cares in the world, and my parents were quick and able and green in years. And the sun rose and set, and my brother took my hand and walked with me and I would, occasionally, look upward at him and marvel. Marvel, because he is still my secret hero from youth. Some things just never change with the years. All these memories. All wrapped up, in the California Dream.

Friederick Gomez - his 96th story for The Paper! For Advertising Information or to subscribe, Call (760) 747-7119

Among the Commodore’s many accomplishments, he is known for owning or controlling a number of railroads including the New York Central Railroad, the builder of New York City’s Grand Central Station, and for providing the initial gift to found Vanderbilt University in Nashville. Born poor on May 27, 1794, Vanderbilt had only a mediocre education. He used perseverance, intelligence, and luck to work his way into leadership positions in the inland water trade and invest in the rapidly growing railroad industry.

According to historian H. Roger Grant: “Contemporaries often hated or feared Vanderbilt or at least considered him an unmannered brute. While Vanderbilt could be a rascal, combative and cunning, he was much more a builder than a wrecker ... being honorable, shrewd, and hard-working.”

Vanderbilt brought his eldest son Billy in as vice-president of the Harlem Railroad. Billy had had a nervous breakdown early in life, and his father had sent him to a farm on Staten Island.

But he proved himself a good businessman, and eventually became the head of the Staten Island Railway. Though the Commodore had once scorned Billy, he was impressed by his son's success. Eventually he promoted him to operational manager of all his railroad lines. In 1864, the Commodore sold his last ships, in order to concentrate on the railroads.

Cornelius Vanderbilt died at the age of 82, on Jan. 4, 1877, at his residence, No. 10 Washington Place, after having been confined to his rooms for about eight months. The immediate cause of his death was exhaustion, brought on by long suffering from a complication of chronic disorders. Vanderbilt had a fortune estimated at $100 million. In his will, he left 95 percent of his $100 million estate to his son William (Billy) and to William's four sons ($5 million to Cornelius, and $2 million apiece to William, Frederick, and George). The Commodore said that he believed William was the only heir capable of maintaining the business empire.

Commodore Vanderbilt willed amounts ranging from $250,000 to $500,000 to each of his daughters. His wife received $500,000, their New York City home, and 2,000 shares of common stock in the New York Central Railroad. To his younger surviving son, Cornelius Jeremiah Vanderbilt, whom he regarded as a wastrel, he left the income from a $200,000 trust fund. The Commodore had lived in relative modesty considering his nearly unlimited means, splurging only on race horses. His descendants were the ones who built the Vanderbilt houses that characterize America's Gilded Age. (Although his daughters and Cornelius received bequests much smaller than those of their brothers, these made them very wealthy by the standards of 1877 and were not subject to inheritance tax.) According to The Wealthy 100 by Michael Klepper and Robert Gunther, Vanderbilt would be worth $143 billion in 2007 United States dollars. This would make him the second-wealthiest person in United States history, after Standard Oil co-founder John Davison Rockefeller (next week’s Part II). Another calculation, from 1998, puts him in third place, after steel magnet Andrew Carnegie, (Part III). Cornelius Vanderbilt was buried in the family vault in the Moravian Cemetery at New Dorp on Staten Island. He was later reburied in a tomb in the same cemetery constructed by his son Billy. Three of his daughters and son, Cornelius Jeremiah Vanderbilt, contested the will on the grounds that their father was of unsound mind and under the influence of his son Billy and of spiritualists whom he consulted on a regular basis. The Commodore’s name continues to this day. A living descendant is his great-great-granddaughter Gloria Vanderbilt, a renowned fashion designer. Her youngest son is Anderson Cooper, a television news anchor. Through Billy's daughter Emily Thorn Vanderbilt, another great-great grandson is TV actor Timothy Olyphant, (“Deadwood” and “Justified.”) Next Week: John D. Rockefeller

College Students Give Up Spring Break to Install No-Cost Solar Panels for San Diego Tribal Families – While most college students spend their Spring Breaks partying, students from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill will fly to San Diego to climb atop roofs on an Indian reservation and learn to install solar panels in professional gear. More than 10 young adults will help families from the San Pasqual Band of Mission Indians Reservation at 27458 No. Lake Wohlford Road, Valley Center, save on their energy bills through solar, then gather with tribal leaders to learn about their culture first hand. This is the final of three weeks of installations for Solar Spring Break https://gridalternatives.org/get-involved/solarbreak, a GRID Alternatives https://gridalternatives.org/sandiego program that provides opportunities for college students to make a difference and gain a foothold in the solar workforce, while helping tribal communities lower energy bills that cost upwards of $200 per month.

Escondido Public Library Would Like Your Help – Even though publicity for the first meeting of the Escondido Public Library’s Strategic Planning Community Advisory Committee (SPCAC) was not received in time to publish for the community’s information, the Library is asking members of the community to get involved.

The participants at the first meeting of SPCAC on Tuesday, March 13th, were asked to identify current community needs, create goals for the future and strategize appropriate steps needed to achieve these goals. This group will be instrumental in envisioning the next five years for the Library, and beyond. All members of the community are encouraged to be part of this process. Updates on the strategic planning process, dates for future meetings, and a method for submitting comments can be found at library.escondido.org/strategicplan. The Library is located at 239 S.

Participatory Budgeting

The Escondido City Council has a yearly budgeting process to plan how to spend money we collect from you in the form of sales taxes, property taxes, fines and fees. Few members of the public ever participate in the budgeting process even though it is your money we are spending.

Escondido used to have a budget subcommittee of two councilmembers who would comb

nering with donors like you who help us realize our vision to bring the greatest care to the littlest of hearts. Our educational series was created to give you an insider’s view of the Hospital’s care and research priorities. Please share any feedback regarding your experience to help us continue to offer you the best event opportunities.

Sweetness is pet of the week at your Rancho Coastal Humane Society. He’s a 3 year old, 11 pound, Poodle mix.

His name fits him. He needs a quiet home and a family that will give him the time and space he needs to feel safe. It’s not necessary, but he might like a dog friend. Sweetness was transferred from another shelter through the FOCAS program.

The $145 adoption fee for Sweetness includes medical exam, vaccinations, neuter, and microchip. For more information call 760-753-6413, visit Rancho Coastal Humane Society at 389 Requeza Street in Encinitas, or log on to SDpets.org.

Our City budget should reflect investment in the needs and priori-

ties of our residents. The only way to do this is to ask community members for input. There is a model of participatory budgeting that involves the public in a facilitated effort to balance a budget with existing revenue conditions and constraints. I would greatly welcome an effort by the City of Escondido to engage residents in participatory budgeting as a way to expand civic engagement and invest our community tax dollars as recommended by community taxpayers.

through the budget document line by line with department staff. That committee was eliminated with the idea that all councilmembers should be heavily involved in preparing the budget. Instead, the process was shifted to reduce or avoid public input by eliminating opportunities to discuss budget decisions in advance or to ask for clarification, hence the lack of community interest or input.

His wife answered, then whispered to her husband, "It's St. Francis calling."

He whispered back, "Tell St. Francis I'll have to call back. I'm talking to Christ." I don't usually pass on sad news like this, but sometimes we need to pause and remember what life is all about. There was a great loss recently. Larry LaPrise, who wrote the song "Hokey Pokey," died this past week at age 83.

It was extremely difficult for the family to keep him in the casket. They'd put his left leg in and... well, you know the rest... There was a knock on the door this past Saturday morning. I opened it to find a young, well-dressed man standing there who said: "Hello sir, I'm a Jehovah's Witness." So I said "Come in and sit down."

I offered him a fresh cup of coffee and asked, "What do you want to talk about?"

He said, "Beats the heck out of me! Nobody ever let me in before." My goal in life is to be as great a person as my dogs think I am.

All arrivals in heaven have to go through a bureaucratic examination to determine whether admission will be granted. One room has a clerk who inputs computerized records of what each applicant did on his or her last day of life.

The first applicant of the day explained that his last day was not a good one. "I came home early and found my wife lying naked in bed. She claimed she had just gotten out of the shower. "Well, her hair was dry, so I checked the shower and it was completely dry too. I knew she was into some hankypanky, and I began to look for her lover. I went onto the balcony of our 9th floor apartment and found the SOB clinging to the rail by his finger tips. I was so angry that I began bashing his fingers with a flower pot. He let go and fell, but his fall was broken by some awnings and bushes.

On seeing he was still alive I found super human strength to drag our antique cedar chest to the balcony and throw it over. It hit the man and killed him. At this point the stress got to me, and I suffered a massive heart attack and died." The clerk thanked him and sent him on to the next office.

The second applicant said that his last day was his worst. "I was on the roof of an apartment building working on the AC equipment. I stumbled over my tools and toppled off the building. I managed to grab onto the balcony rail of a 9th floor apartment, but some idiot came rushing out on the balcony and bashed my hands with a flower pot. I fell but hit some awnings and bushes and survived, but as I looked up I saw a huge chest falling toward me. I tried to crawl out of the way but failed and was hit and killed by the chest." The clerk couldn't help but chuckle as he directed the man to the next room.

He was still giggling when his third customer of the day entered. He apolo-

Free Tax Help at the Senior Center

Tax season is here and volunteers are ready to assist you. The City is partnering with AARP in offering free tax help at the McClellan Senior Center, Tuesday through Thursday, from 9 am to 2 pm. The senior center is located at 1400 Vale Terrace Drive. Appointments may be made by calling the Tax line at 760.643.5290 The free service runs through April 13. If you have a few hours to spare once a month or each week, think about becoming a volunteer driver at the Senior Center. Using volunteer

drivers, the “Out and About” transportation program provides homebound residents door-to-door transportation for grocery shopping, medical appointments, and other errands. The program is so important, because it helps older adults stay independent by providing them transportation. Volunteers are needed to provide a friendly smile and to drive these seniors to their destinations. Drivers are reimbursed for mileage and receive supplemental insurance. For more information or to call to volunteer, contact the Senior Center at 760.639.6160.

Exciting New Program at the Library!

The Oceanside Public Library is participating in a grant-funded pilot project through the California State Library to bring new devices called Starlings to Oceanside families. Starling is a wearable word counter for young children; it picks up vocal sound waves, without recording, and parses out the number of words a child is hearing, in any language. Parents or caregivers clip the device onto their child, and it measures how many words their child is exposed to every day, using Bluetooth technology and a free Starling app downloaded onto their phone. The free app provides early

A rash of computer crashes, lost data and connections last week were the result of the forced implementation of Microsoft’s latest OS (operating system). Users thought it was just an update to Windows 10 but in reality it was a brand new OS called 1709. It was the 4th involuntary change of OS forced upon Win 10 users since 2015. Each one resulted in millions of crashes and repair bills for Win 10 users. For many years Microsoft has used their financial strength to crush competition, avoid litigation and intimidate governments but to knowingly crash the computers including those of the poor and elderly causing them to choose

Microsoft is in trouble. For forty years they enjoyed geometric grow along with the PC Industry. Then, in 2015 their revenue peaked and they stopped growing. Their fortuitous early relationship with IBM allowed Microsoft to become the dominant provider of personal computer operating systems and commonly used applications since the dawn of the PC age in 1981. As the PC industry grew Microsoft used its dominant position in operating systems to snuff out rival applications and software providers like Netscape and Word Perfect. Microsoft has never been much of an innovator or trend setter. It has been said that if a Microsoft application is cool, they either bought it or stole it. In spite of their dominance, Microsoft has been slow to recognize opportunities in their industry. They were late to recognize the impact of the internet and mobile connections. They trail badly in mobile applications, Internet browsers and search engines. The Internet is where the money is today and Microsoft is trying to catch up. While they still provide 90% of PC operating systems, PC sales are shrinking. Their attempt to promote Windows smart phones failed miserably and their internet browser and search engines are far behind Alphabet’s (google).

A Petition for Probate has been filed by Carol Ingram in the Superior Court of California, County of San Diego, 1100 Union St., San Diego, Ca., 92121, Central Probate Division. The Petition for Probate requests that Carol Ingram be appointed as personal representatives to administer the estate of the decedent. The petition requests authority to administer the estate under the Independent Administration of Estates Act. (This authority will allow the personal repreesentative to take many actions without obtaining court approval. Before taking certain very important actions, however, the personal representattive will be required to give notice to interested persons unless they have waived notice or consented to the proposed actions.) 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: 3/29/2018 Time: 1:30 p.m . Dept: 503 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. Attorney for petioner: Ronald R.
