Volume 51 - No. 11

By Sam Lowe

Joe Hughes leaned me against the stationary back brace, cinched the leather strap tightly around my waist and cautioned, “Once we take off, don't mess with either of these. Not the strap, not the brace.” There was no reason I would contest his warning. We were standing on the upper wing of an old Stearman biplane, and Hughes was a headliner for the air show he was promoting in Mesa, Arizona, and a veteran of this type of activity. Conversely, I was a longtime coward afflicted The Paper - 760.747.7119

with acrophobia (fear of heights), aviophobia (fear of flying), and poultryphobia (fear of chickening out in front of my peers).

Hughes then stretched smaller straps across my feet, fastened them and assured me that I couldn't fall off, even if I tried. Even if I tried?

I was about to ascend more than a half-mile off the ground while attached to the top of a double-wing airplane, my quivering body held in place by three dinky little straps and

Hughes didn't notice. He patted me on the shoulders and delivered more advice. “Keep your mouth closed while we're in the air,” he said. “If you don't, the wind might blow your

He checked to make sure my goggles were secure, then left me and climbed down into the cockpit, leaving me as a lone forlorn creature straddling the wing of an airplane and wondering if The Phoenix Gazette, my employer, had any sense of the sacrifice I was about to make to get The Big Story, as we called them back in those halcyon days when reporters were

Prior to his declaration, even the mere thought of such an occurrence had never entered into my mind. Once he said it, the possibility of it happening attached itself to my worry button and the two formed an uneasy relationship, a bit like a keg of beer at a Napa Valley wine tasting.

Even today, I do not have proper words to describe how non-reassuring that was.

fearless and the beer lunged out of the tap with a curse. But that musing soon faded when Hughes fired up his flying machine and I observed that the engine was only about four feet away, directly in front of me and placed there, no doubt, so that if it stopped, the wingwalker would be the first to know. The plane roared down the runway at a high rate of speed and I became painfully aware of one pertinent fact: It was now too late to ask Hughes if he'd mind stopping so I could get off.

In a matter of seconds, the three of us – Hughes, the Stearman biplane and me – became airborne. Hughes and the biplane took it like professionals. I, the strapped-on passenger, handled it reasonably well, considering that the ground was vanishing below me at the rate of 80 feet per second and there was nothing between me and it except an old double-wing biplane that had probably fought the Red Baron over Europe. Actually, though, it wasn't too bad at first. In fact, it was almost exhilarating. The prop wash and the force we three created while blasting through the desert air pinned my clothing to my body and pushed my body tighter against the back brace. The scene below was sort of inter-

esting and I brashly waved at the chase plane carrying the Gazette photographer sent up to record my feat of daring. Unfortunately, it didn't end there.

Prior to our departure, Hughes had inquired, “Do you mind if I do a loop?” Normally, he would have received my approval without hesitation. Stunt pilots and mid-air loops go hand-in-hand, just like long neck beer bottles and extended swigging. But since I was going to be attached to the exterior of his airplane when he inverted it, the question took on the added weights of centrifugal force, abject fear of neck stretching, and my mother's frequent warning about wearing clean underwear in case of an accident. However, I had no choice other than consenting because Hughes had asked my permission to do the loop in front of my fellow journalists and if there's one thing we members of the media feared back in those glorious days when we subjected our bodies to almost anything if there was free beer involved, it was declining an offer to do a loop while strapped to a Stearman biplane at 2,500 feet when it was proposed in the presence of other journalists. In those days, we never gave it a second thought. Just do it, was our unwritten creed, particularly when there were others standing close enough to hear. More particularly when some of them had already done it. So then, just when I was thinking

that maybe I'd still be alive to brag about the experience, Hughes increased his air speed and turned the plane upside down. The natural reaction to being turned upside down while standing on the top of an airplane is to grab for the nearest thing and hang on. Since there isn't much to grab hold of on top of a biplane, I frantically flung my arms around myself, apparently assuming that if just part of me stayed intact, so would the rest.

But that problem was minor compared to figuring out which way to look while hanging off an airplane wing. If I looked down, which technically became up due to the current configuration of me in regard to the airplane, I saw the top of an airplane flying with its belly aimed at the firmaments, surrounded by open sky. This bothered me immensely because even if the earth was 2,000 feet below, it was something definite, not this vast blue expanse of cloudless nothingness that occupied most of my attention at the moment. And if I looked up, which now became down, I observed that my head was pointed directly at the ground some 2,000 feet away. Although probably totally unaware of my mental distortions, Hughes was merciful and he flipped the plane back upright just when I started remembering the day my high school science class dropped watermelons off the roof of the old power plant and measured the splatter for distance and dispersion.

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 hanky-panky, 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

So the plane was zooming along the way it was intended to fly, the desert below was sedate but not inviting, and I was feeling like maybe the photos would be blurry and not show how scared I was. Unfortunately, it didn't end there.

Also prior to takeoff, Hughes warned me to keep my arms folded across my chest or the rush of air would snap them back, causing shoulder strain so severe that it would prevent me from writing the thrilling saga of my brave encounter with peril which, my now demented mind figured, would be a front-page account filled with pulse-pounding drama. In addition, the back brace came up only to my waist and the rush of the air was pushing so hard that it bent me backwards from my kidneys up. I closed my eyes and fervently wished that I'd listened to myself two weeks earlier when I told myself that I didn't have the guts for things like this.

Now more worried about doing permanent damage to my back than falling unaccompanied and parachuteless off the top of an airplane, I elected to ignore the pilot's warning about messing with the straps and grabbed leather. I loosened the waist strap enough so I could hunker down and get the brace into a higher position so it would save my spine. It helped, but now I looked

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 apologized and said, "I doubt that your last day was as interesting as the fellow in here just before you."

"I don't know," replied the man, "picture this, I'm buck naked hiding' in this cedar chest." •••• Marriages lasted longer in the 50's and 60's. Researchers find that couples stayed together longer because there were only 3 TV channels to fight over. •••• You're not old... unless you remember...

I got sick.

Getting sick while wingwalking is very distressing. Wingwalkers do not carry barf bags and even if there had been one available, I would not have been able to use it because both arms were busy clutching the rest of me. The alternative was to forget about airplane etiquette and just go ahead and spit it out, but I couldn't do that because Hughes was sitting in an open cockpit somewhere behind me and, in my weakened condition, I feared that my disgorgement might hit him in the face and the plane would crash because the pilot couldn't see where he was going. That, of course, would make a front page story for The Phoenix Gazette but it wouldn't be written by me.

ognized my engorged cheeks as a problem. He unstrapped me in a hurry and aimed me toward a nearby row of garbage bins. Breakfast went in a hurry. So did several other foreign items that I had ingested as much as a week previously.

Immediately, my fellow writers rushed to my side. “So, how was your trip?” one of them asked. And I, from a prone position on the ground, tried to tell them but, like a true journalist, saved most of the good stuff for my story.

My account did run on the front page the next day, complete with the up-in-the-air photos but, fortunately, none of me resurrecting breakfast. Eugene Pulliam, the publisher, sent me a note of congratulations and said the paper needed more stories like that. I sent him a note telling him he should probably find someone else to write them. And when the air show promoters called the next year to ask if I'd like to do it again, I declined.

So I had no choice. I rode on top of that infernal biplane for more than 10 minutes with a mouthful of predigested breakfast, which included eggs, bacon, sausage, hash browns, toast and a strawberry malt topped with whipped cream and a maraschino cherry.

Grady’s Footsteps GRADY'S FOOTSTEPS By Michele Ivy Davis

Lives of great men all remind us We can make our lives sublime. And departing leave behind us Footsteps on the sands of time... --- Longfellow Many years ago, several miles outside Washington, D.C. and only a few blocks off the main road to Frederick, Maryland, sat what was left of the crossroads community of Derwood. It consisted of a few old houses, two country churches, an abandoned rooming house/post office, and a lawnmower repair shop. There were no stores, no shopping centers, and no gas stations. Surrounding it on three sides were corn fields as far as the eye could see on our rolling countryside. On the fourth side, separating it from the rush and congestion of the highway northward, were the B&O Railroad tracks—straight guardians of Derwood's isolation and another way of life.

Grady and his wife lived in one of the old Victorian houses in Derwood. Each time our family rattled our way over the railroad's level crossing, we would see him working in his garden, his white hair gleaming in the sun. He was probably in his fifties, but no one knew for sure. His ruddy complexion and the wrinkles around his eyes could have come from age or working outdoors in the sunlight, or from smiling…yes, certainly from smiling. One morning as I picked the first iris of spring, I thought about Grady and the many footsteps he left behind...

I took the flower into my children's school where I helped out from time to time. "It's beautiful!”

"I've never seen anything like it!”

Escondido’s Palomar Family YMCA Throws in the Towel

After serving North San Diego County from its Escondido location for decades, the YMCA Board of Directors of San Diego have decided to sell the campus of Palomar YMCA, located at 1050 N. Broadway.

Shelly McTighe-Ripengale, the YMCA’s senior vice president and chief development officer confirmed the reason for the sale. “I can tell you in five letters,” she said, “C-O-VI-D.” “It was financially devastating to our organization,” she went on.

The campus was unable to offer any of its indoor facilities over the past year due to governmentally issued shutdown orders to all gyms and fitness centers. The board of directors directed its staff to immediately begin seeking out potential buys for the property which has over 85,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor facilities, including a swimming pool, gym,

The North County Transit District (NCTD) will suspend all coastal rail line service between the Oceanside Transit Center and Santa Fe Depot during the weekend of March 20-21, 2021, as part of a planned schedule of rail closures that support routine maintenance and rail infrastructure work.  The March rail closures will also be utilized to begin emergency repairs on the Del Mar Bluffs (Bluffs) due to the recent bluff collapse. Members of the public are reminded not to trespass along the railroad right-of-way, and due to the danger of an additional bluff collapse, not to sit, stand, or walk within 50 feet of the work zone on the beach below. Being caught in a bluff collapse can cause serious injury or death. During construction, beach access will be limited and depending on construction activity and tides, there may or may not be beach access between Del Mar and Torrey Pines State Beach.

San Diego County Fair to Re-Open, With Modifications

The 22nd District Agricultural Association tasked with operating the Del Mar Fairgrounds have agreed to plans for a modified version of the annual county fair.

San Diego County Fair Presents: Homegrown Fun! will take place June 11-July 4, closed Mondays and Tuesdays and open from noon to 9 p.m, and in a smaller footprint than San Diegans are used to with the traditional county fair.

New Crisis Response Teams Rolling Out on Mental Health Calls DA Summer Stephan joined Supervisor Nathan Fletcher this week to announce plans for the Mobile Crisis Response Team program to expand countywide.

The Mobile Crisis Response Teams have been responding (instead of police) to people in mental health crises in the North County under a pilot program that began in January. Oceanside City Manager Names Fred Armijo New Police Chief

“We are very pleased to present a version of the fair that will provide the community with an essence of some of the most important traditions San Diegans look forward to every year to start their summer,” said Katie Mueller, chief business services operator at the fairgrounds.

Oceanside City Manager Deanna Lorson announced today that Oceanside Police Captain Fred Armijo will be the City of Oceanside’s 19th Police Chief.

Other attractions will include animal presentations, community demonstrations and the fairgrounds also hopes to have a Fourth of July fireworks display to close out the event.

Chief Armijo is very involved in his community and in his profession.

Food stands will be returning to the event this year with at least 20 vendors with the board hoping for more before June.

“This is really exciting and something that is feeling as though we are turning the corner to some kind of normalcy for the first time in months and months,” President Richard Valdez said.

Restaurant at 113 E. Grand was our home for the evening. Mary had Veal Parmesan, Kenny had a Chicken Alfredo and I had my old favorite, the Sausage and Pepper Casserole.

Naturally, we ate waaaaay too much of Dominic’s breadsticks and their delightful Marinara dipping sauce.

The Paper

Grady’s Footsteps Cont. from Page 3

“Where did you get it?”

Exclamations. Questions. All about a single flower—one huge purpleblue iris, its deepness streaked with brilliant white. Surely an expensive hybrid.

"I'm thinning my iris plants,” Grady had said several years before, shortly after my husband and I moved into our own ancient house not far away. “Want some?” And he proceeded to fill our car trunk with the healthy plants that bloom each year with great velvet heads of yellow, brown, blue, and nearly black. Hundreds of dollars worth of plants. Most people would have sold them to us, but no thank you, he wouldn't take payment. "Someone gave them to me,” he said simply, "so I'm giving them to you."

Grady was like that. He was like the old section of Derwood—a part of a time when houses had porches for visiting, everyone knew everyone else, and if your neighbor needed help, why then, you helped him. It was as simple as that. He was known to take his tractor over on a stifling hot day to help a friend he saw cutting his lawn with a hand mower, or take some firewood to an elderly neighbor and then spend the rest of the afternoon splitting it for him. He was never in a hurry. If you wanted to stop by for a chat, that was fine. If you wanted him to check on some¬thing at your house, he'd do that, too. Not that he wasn't busy. He always had a project going, and managed to get up earlier, work harder, and get twice as much done as those of us half his age. My husband and I spent many fretful hours trying to keep up the repairs on our old house and cut the grass, but Grady seemed to do it with ease. His yard was the neatest and cleanest in the neighbor¬hood. His lawn was always freshly mown, and in his huge vegetable garden, the rows were straight and frustratingly weed-free. He had land to clear, buildings to build, food to can, and a full time job. But stop by his house and he'd greet you as if he had all the time in the world. Come in. Sit down. Something to drink?

Although he seemed at first meeting to be a man of few words--an observer--those who knew him soon found he was also a teller of tales. He worked as a handyman for the school system, and break time would find him with the others in the tiny room under the stairs, coffee cup in hand. There they would sit, draped over their school-issue wooden chairs, discussing the merits of black snakes or garden tillers with equal enthusiasm. Grady, his face poker serious and his eyes crinkling ever so slightly at the corners, would top any story, anyone told, any time. Whatever it was, he had it, or knew where he

Page 5 • • March 18, 2021

could get it, bigger, cheaper, and in greater quantity than anyone else. The others would shake their heads or raise an eyebrow, but they listened. There were occasional disbelievers in the group, but they soon found, as the others had, that if they slyly checked up on his story, every word was the truth. It never failed. And it drove them crazy. Ask him for advice, for help in growing things, and Grady became the teacher. How do you plant raspberries? When do you put in corn? Where can we order apple trees?... Bees? He had several hives. Good for the garden. Here-- you can keep one of my hives at your place... Onions? What do you mean you can't grow them? And he would reach down and pull up an onion bigger than anything I’d ever seen.

Then I, who was brought up in a world of super highways, convenience stores, and permanent press, noticed something. My children gobbled up their vegetables simply because we grew them in our own garden; we took great pleasure in giving away cuttings of the iris plants that were so freely given to us; and we viewed with pride our neat rows of canning jars sitting on the shelves, full and secure against another freezing winter. I realized that although the physical structures were torn down and hauled away, everything wasn’t gone. Grady, simply and unknowingly, had seen to that by leaving his mark in our lives and the lives of others—his footsteps on the sands of time. About the Author:

He seemed to know it all and his patience was remarkable. Sometimes, though I must admit, he would look at us quizzically, run his fingers through his snowy hair, and I could almost see him wondering how two full-grown adults could be so ignorant. Then one warm October evening the rescue squad came screaming through Derwood, and we got word that Grady had died--a heart attack. It was sudden... unexpected... and brutally final.

Abruptly, or so it seemed, things started to change. Within a year, the farms and corn fields surrounding Old Derwood were sold. Soon there were apartments, townhouses, and single family homes where the redwing blackbird once flew. They closed the bumpy, teeth-rattling railroad crossing, and built a smooth, four-lane bridge further south; the new Metro high speed trains that were coming were too fast and too dangerous to have level crossings any more. Bulldozers filled the air with the musty odor of fresh turned earth, clearing the brush and trees for another set of parallel tracks for the new trains-tracks that would end in a huge station, storage yard, and parking for 2,500 cars within sight of Grady's house. And in Derwood there was talk of who would sell, whose land would go commercial. Sometimes progress just can't be stopped. Land that close to Washington, D.C. was suddenly too valuable for corn, and people had waited too many years for the Metro to get that far out. I knew that.

But seeing all of those changes coming made me afraid that maybe, just maybe, by not having to stop at the crossing (and count the freight cars and wave to the engineer), by tearing down the houses with front porches (and swings), we were going to lose forever the very essence of a time that was passing. It worried me, seeing that slip away. I wanted to say “Wait! Stop for a minute! A whole way of life will be gone.” Smoothed over like windflattened desert sands.

The Appraiser’s Corner Football Helmets

Imagine a modern day running back for the Denver Broncos or New York Jets running smack into a 350 pound defensive lineman ---- with only a leather helmet. That’s a bit hard to believe in today’s game. After all, we’re all accustomed to seeing those beautifully decorated hard plastic helmets that the players wear. But the leather helmets were not too much of a thing of the past. Not at all. Let me go back not too many years ago and trace the history of the football helmets. You can then see for yourself that today’s helmets have probably saved many players from great bodily harm, and even death. It was in the early 1900s that soft leather skull caps were used as optional headgear. Yes, optional headgear. In the 1920s, hardened leather helmets first were worn, which admittedly increased protection. Football became much safer in 1939 when John Riddel devised the first plastic helmet. However, as plastics became more scarce during World War II, so did the durability of the plastic. After the war, helmets again became sturdier. Soon, padded plastic helmets were devised. As a forerunner of today’s NFL helmets, in 1948, Los Angeles Rams halfback Fred Gehrke painted horns on his helmet. The Rams then became the first professional team with a helmet emblem.

In 1955, a single face bar was added to the padded plastic helmets. Naturally, face-masking soon followed, only to be banned in 1956. The face bar was the creation of legendary Cleveland Browns’ coach Paul Brown, who wanted to protect his star quarterback Otto Graham. By 1962, facemasks were worn by all NFL players.

his Olympic medals stripped from him due to his not being judged an amateur, was given back to his family years later. He also served as the “Rare” Disease Awareness president of the National Football League when it was first founded in 1920.

In 1995 a new NFL rule permitted a quarterback to have a radio transmitter in their helmets. This made it easier for a teams’ coach to call in plays. Today, rules regarding helmets are pretty lax. A rule does specify that a helmet with a white chinstrap must be fastened and a face mask attached.

Of course, NFL football collectors have always been enthralled by helmets, especially ones worn by famous players. Early leather helmets are very scarce, and it is very difficult to attribute a leather helmet with a particular player in most cases.

However, a leather helmet worn by the legendary Jim Thorpe was auctioned in 2009. Thorpe was the famous Olympian, who after having

An estimated 30 million people in the United States suffer from rare diseases/conditions. That’s why raising public awareness about this problem is so important.

Historically Speaking by Tom Morrow

The Big Band History of North County

One of the unique stories of North San Diego County is the wealth of musicians we have (or had) living in our community. I had the good fortune of meeting and working with many of these men and women who brought so much Great American Songbook enjoyment and memories to our area. Of the many musicians I worked with, interviewed, and/or played with in my band, included some of the best during the big band era of the Great Depression and World War II. They included singer/songwriter Hugh Martin, White House orchestra conductor/arranger Sammy Nestico, Paul Tanner, who was the first trombonist hired by Glen Miller. Also, famed Indian composer/sitar musician Ravi Shankar, and at 94, the world’s oldest trombonist John Smith, who used to jam after LA gigs with the likes of renowned jazz musicians and brothers Jack and Charlie Teagarten.

But it’s music that filled the air for many years here in our community. I first became acquainted with many area musicians as an emcee and singer with Oceanside’s Big Band & Jazz Hall of Fame Orchestra. Many of its members played in one or more other area groups. One of the many memorable performances of the JHFO was at the Oceanside beach band shell featuring world renowned pianist Kevin Cole playing George Gershwin’s famed “Rhapsody in Blue,” which was the climax of the first Oceanside Music Festival. In 2002, I was introduced to Ray Mahoney of Vista who led a small eight-piece band he called his “Society Orchestra.”

That year I began singing and playing trumpet solos with Ray’s band. I hadn’t played in 45 years, but’s amazing how fast the ol’ lips toughen up, and it didn’t take long for me to once again read those chicken-scratch notes on the charts. I warbled well enough to keep up with the modest of church choir singers.

Ray retired that year and I took over the group playing in the trumpet section. Our trumpets included the fabulous Eddie Kruck, who had been one of the top L.A. area soloists, and Morris Redding, formally a member of a popular ensemble in Las Vegas. I played in the section for a short time until Dick Bouchard joined us. Dick had played trumpet for 10 years with the U.S. Navy Band in Washington, D.C. With three far better buglers than me, I stepped aside and stuck to singing and managing the band.

Our rhythm section included Phil Burns on piano and Boyd Rogers on the drums. Phil, had a gentle touch to the keyboard. A country & western musician, Boyd was an inductee in that genre’s California Hall of Fame.

Boyd also was a real pro on the guitar and violin. When he retired, John Will took over on the drums. Pete Heid was on stand-up bass. Later, Don Skelton took Pete’s place and finally the bass was played by Mark Phelps, music director of Oceanside High. And the fabulous guitarist Armand Frigon stepped in after the very gentle Sol Tomberg passed away.

The trombone section included Walt Kelber, Stu Gibson and John Smith, who at 94, was arguably the world’s oldest on that instrument. Later bass trombonist Art Perlman added great depth to the section.

Up front we ended up with one of the best saxophone sections anywhere. Led by Tom Brawner on tenor and baritone, we had John Rider on tenor, and the versatile Carl Cabaniss, who also played clarinet and flute. On alto sax was Ron Rithalter, who also doubled on the clarinet and Bonnie Hall, who doubled on soprano sax. She had replaced the retiring Bill Hendrix. Back in the seventies, Bill had backed up famed Barbara Mandrell and her family; and, at one time Ron was a member of Guy Lombardo’s Royal Canadians when Guy’s brother Carman died. Joining me up front in the vocal department was old friend and partner Bill Stromberg and songstress Diane Scholfield. Diane soon decided our type of music wasn’t her preference because of her background in the theatrical arts. A delightful pixie named Janet Barton became our permanent songbird and Bill had spent more than 30 years in Hollywood as a special-effects artist. He sang and served as the band’s “roadie,” which meant he set up the sound equipment for the band. Janet had been a country & western singer until I introduced here to big-band swing. She became one of the best singers anywhere. Later, two outstanding trumpet players Les Samenow, who retired as music director at San Marcos High School, and San Diego’s “high note” wizard of Jack Lang joined the section, making it one of the best in quality of sound and ability. We finally became a traditional 19member, very danceable big band. We weren’t in it for the money, but occasionally a few bucks flowed our way, especially on New Year’s eves. I managed the band for 11 years, stepping down in 2013, turning over the helm to sax section leader Tom Brawner and trumpet and vocal soloist Rick Evans. Janet managed play dates. Like so many other organizations, the Covid-19 pandemic tore our group apart. For more than a year now the band hasn’t been together, able to meet and rehearse. Many members have given up ever playing together again. But, we can’t blame Covid altogether. As those of us who were big band enthusiasts fade away, most of the early rock ‘n’ rollers of the fifties now are on the front lines. They never really cared for swing and slow dancing to our so-called “Mickey Mouse” music. To those who joined the band and filled in on an interim basis, sorry if I’ve left you out … mark it up to memory slippage. It’s a shame the beat of the “Greatest

Remembering Scott Allen Davis

It doesn’t seem like 57 years since he was born. It seems like just yesterday. But life is like that. Kids are born . . you turn around, and they’ve grown up. Our Scott was born on October 3, 1963, in Oak Park, Illinois. The proud parents were lyle e. davis and his Scottish bride, Mary. Another son, Kenneth Hugh Davis, would be born on May 3, 1966.

The two brothers would play together, laugh together, and grow up together. They were, for years, inseparable.

There were Little League games, youth soccer games, Scott’s competitive swimming meets, lots of fishing, traveling together to Scotland, to the midwest, to Florida . . . always being welcomed by family and friends. The waiting for a child to be born is sometimes frustrating but waiting for them to pass away is even moreso.

You don’t want them to go. Yet you want them to be released from suffering. Thanks to the wonderful people of Palomar Medical Center and of Elizabeth Hospice, our Scott was able to make his transition from life to death in comfort and pain-free.

back. It’s a very painful experience, seeing a loved one leave us.

But I keep remembering that I and my family are no different than hundreds of thousands of people who have lost loved ones, children, spouses, parents . . . and only those who have lost a loved one have any idea of the indescribable pain that one endures in the process.

I have tried to be the strong one in the family . . . but I’m afraid I failed. I lost it a couple of times, shedding a number of tears and shaking my fist at the fortunes of life. And death. And it did no good. Sweet Mary, Scott’s mother, is somewhat insulated because of her dementia. She did not know how ill Scott was or that he was going to, and ultimately did, die. The kind and merciful thing to do, in my judgment, is to continue letting Scott’s mother believe he is still in the hospital, in good and loving hands, and that he will return home one day . . . for as long as it gives Mary peace.

We all had visits with Scott in his final days, thanks to Palomar Medical Center and Elizabeth Hospice. You could not ask for more understanding and helpful people. We all said our goodbyes as a family . . as well as close friends and relatives who managed to visit. At times like these one tends to recall memory a f t e r memory of events t h a t occurred in the lifetime of one you love. And so it is with Scott.

I remember how e A young Scott, right, sometime in the 1970’s, with his dad, lyle, following h dad’s first parachute jump adamantly refused He’s gone now, way too young at 57 to wear long pants in grade school. years of age.

(and dad lost 11 lbs thanks to his wise cookery). The grandparents and aunts and uncles in Scotland thought there was nobody like “oor Scott.” They loved him and he loved them right back. The American grandparents, my mom and dad, loved him every bit as much and were delighted when we were all together as a family.

Pool parties at the Davis house were legendary and Mother Mary’s Scottish Pizza was in high demand as the neighborhood pals would come over after ball games, or just for a visit. Lots of fun in our backyard and our pool. Scott and his brother Kenny were great pals throughout their lives. An occasional bout of sibling rivalry but that is to be expected and they always made up promptly.

Entering the world of entertainment he met a lot of celebrities and we still have a photo of Scott, Mary and Chubby Checkers - as well as wellknown San Diego news anchor, Graham Ledger, a long-time close friend. He worked as an intern at KUSI TV and KFMBTV and knew most of the on-air personalities. He loved them and they loved him as well. Scott had a very active imagination and spun some mighty far-out yarns. He had a bit of Walter Mitty in him and he wold often “compose” stories that smacked of the truth but were often, manufactured. Those who knew Scott can tell stories about Scott’s “adventures.”

Somewhere along the line Scott began to be known as “Scotty the D,” a blonde haired, handsome surfer dude.

Scott Allen Davis 10/3/63 - 03/10/2021

And so it is time to say goodbye to Scott Allen Davis, my eldest son.

I am proud of your courage and your ability to deal with pain without complaint. I am proud to have been your dad . . an imperfect dad, but one that was proud of you and your brother.

I love you Scott. So does your mom and Kenny. Goodbye, Scott.

Dad

•••• In keepinig with his wishes, Scott’s body was donated to the UCSD body donor program so that medical and dental students may examine his body and learn from it. A memorial service for family and friends will be announced at a later date.

Q: I registered for the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) exam and paid $1,450 as enrollment and registration fees. Because of the pandemic, the CFA Institute postponed all examinations that month. However, they are only offering the exam in December 2020 at the earliest or sometime in 2021.

I am unable to appear for the exam during these months. I have plans to pursue an MBA. I have communicated the same to them, but the CFA Institute states that no refund will be offered as the exams are being postponed. I would like a refund of the fees paid. Can you help me get my $1,450 back? -- Nikita Kejriwal, Mumbai A: If the CFA Institute, which administers the exam, has postponed your test, you should be able to get a refund.

By way of background, the CFA exam prepares candidates to be "effective and ethical" investment management professionals, according to the Institute. Chances are, your financial advisor has a CFA designation. Think of it as a bar exam for financial professionals. Unfortunately, the CFA Institute wasn't offering refunds when you contacted me in mid-2020. I disagree with that position for several reasons. Mostly, it forces candidates like you to make a difficult decision: your money or your health? I don't think anyone should have to make that choice.

I think a brief, polite appeal to the CFA Institute might have helped move your case along. The organization lists the <a href="https://www.cfainstitute.org /en/about/governance/leadership/t eam">members of its management team on its site</a>. Although they don't list their email addresses, most CFA addresses follow the format firstname.lastname@cfainstitute.org.

You are located in Mumbai. Under Indian law, you can <a href="https://www.in.gov/core/ref und.html">file a chargeback on your card</a> for a service that wasn't provided. The law is similar to the Fair Credit Billing Act in the United States, which allows you to get a refund for items charged but not delivered. The terms of your CFA exam purchase are clear -- no refunds. But as the pandemic worsened, the

Being sent to the drugstore to test vacuum tubes for the TV. When Kool-Aid was the only drink for kids, other than milk and sodas.

The Pastor Says...

Eight percent of worry is legitimate, but even then, you’re worrying about it won't change it! (Preaching Today, “Why Worry”, 2010)

When there were two types of sneakers for boys.

The good news is that the Bible has some things to say about anxiety and worry that are helpful when we apply them.

When boys couldn't wear anything but leather shoes to school.

When dealing with anxiety, remember:

When it took five minutes for the TV to warm up.

When all your friends got their hair cut at the kitchen table. When nearly everyone's mom was at home when the kids got there. When nobody owned a purebred dog.

When a dime was a decent allowance, and a quarter a huge bonus. When you'd reach into a muddy gutter for a penny.

When girls neither dated nor kissed until late high school, if then. When your mom wore nylons that came in two pieces.

When all your teachers wore either neckties or had their hair done, everyday. When you got your windshield cleaned, oil checked, and gas pumped, without asking, for free, every time. And you got trading stamps to boot!

When laundry detergent had free glasses, dishes or towels hidden inside the box. When any parent could discipline any kid, or feed him, or use him to carry groceries, and nobody, not even the kid, thought a thing of it. When it was considered a great privilege to be taken out to dinner at a real restaurant with your parents.

When they threatened to keep kids back a grade if they failed...and did!

When being sent to the principal's office was nothing compared to the fate that awaited a misbehaving student at home.

•••• Without money, we'd all be rich. •••• If I had to choose between pancakes or French toast, I'd waffle. •••• Yes officer, I did hit a pedestrian, but instead of dwelling on that why not focus on how many I've missed. •••• I'm afraid I've inherited mom's Boom without dad's Shaka Lakka. •••• A friendly reminder:  Wearing a mask when alone in a car is only helpful if you stole the car.

Pastor Sam Brumit Mission 316, San Marcos Dealing with Anxiety

As a pastor and counselor, one of the topics I deal with often in people’s lives is anxiety. That’s not surprising since about 40 million people, over age 18, encounter anxiety in their lives. How do you face the challenge of worry? Listen to these statistics on worry:

Forty percent of what we worry about never comes to pass. Thirty percent of what we worry about happened in the past and can't be changed.

Ten percent of what we worry about relates to health. (What's both funny and sad is that researchers have proven that worry actually makes your health worse not better!)

Pet Parade

Sunshine (701255) is her name for a reason!

This rabbit is a very special soul. She adores her time spent with humans, and loves getting pets. Sunshine is also very curious and active. She loves exploring wide open spaces, and is great at looking for ways out of her play pen. Sunshine is litter box trained, she keeps her space nice and clean. She is so happy when she's out exploring that she jumps with joy, and gets the zoomies! If you're looking for an outgoing, loving, snuggle bun to binge watch Netflix with then look no further! Sunshine is available for adoption at San Diego Humane Society’s Escondido Campus at 3500 Burnet Drive. To learn more about making her part of your family, please make an appointment online at sdhumane.org/adopt or call 619-2997012.

FIRST, GOD IS IN CONTROL – YOU ARE NOT.

Yeah, most of us have control issues. When we can’t control things around us, we get anxious. It helps to remember that God is in control. It’s calming.

SECOND, GETTING TO KNOW GOD HELPS OUR PERSPECTIVE. Practices like prayer, meditation and focusing on your relationship with God helps. After all, he is a very present help in times of trouble. THIRD, GIVING OUR PROBLEMS TO GOD IS GREAT STRESS RELIEF.

Jesus reminded us that we shouldn't be anxious about our life. Worry doesn’t work. Peter, a follower of Jesus and the author of two books in the Bible makes this clear: See - I Peter 5:6-7 Why be anxious and worry?

Clarke is pet of the week at your Rancho Coastal Humane Society. He’s an 8 year old, 14 pound, male, Domestic Short Hair cat with a Red Tabby coat. Clarke was found in the night drop at a shelter in Riverside County. He was transferred to Rancho Coastal Humane Society through the FOCAS (Friends of County Animal Shelters) program. He was very shy when he arrived, but his sweet purr-sonality has come out since he’s been in foster care with a trained volunteer.

The $75 adoption fee for Clarke includes medical exam, neuter, up to date vaccinations, and registered microchip. For information about Adoption by Appointment or to become a Virtual Foster log on to www.SDpets.org or call 760-753-6413.

San Marcos • Mayor Rebecca Jones

Improving our streets: Twin Oaks Valley/San Elijo corridor

I The Twin Oaks Valley Road and San Elijo Road paving project began in mid-February with an anticipated completion date of June 2021. The project is repairing and resurface one of San Marcos’ most highly traveled corridors stretching between Rancho Santa Fe Road and State Route 78. The focus of the work from now through April will be traffic signal work and pavement repair. The last order of work will include slurry seal and restriping the entire corridor.

While the project will cause delays in the short term, this important work will ultimately extend the life of the pavement and prevent premature failure of our roads.

Traffic will be impacted throughout construction with lane closures and delays. For the latest details, visit the City of San Marcos’ Road and Traffic Alerts webpage at bit.ly/SMtrafficalerts.

Escondido • Mayor Paul “Mac” McNamara Greetings Escondido,

I grew up on the East Coast, so if you are lucky enough to be a native of SOCAL, please don’t complain about the weather. In the words of every parent, you don’t know how lucky you are. Growing up with four seasons, everyone had their personal signs that Spring was coming and along with it, warmer weather. For me, it was a Lilac bush in our yard that produced yellow flowers. When that happened, you knew that we were just around the corner from the nicer weather. Well, the Pandemic has been somewhat of long winter for me, and probably many others. But the good news is I think I had my first sign of Spring. I recently attended the kick-off meeting of VetFest 2021 at our local American Legion post. The parade and associated events were cancelled in 2020, but the “weather” looks promising for this November. I felt like a kid again at the meeting as I looked forward to an event where we can all go outside and gather. Stay informed, Be Kind, Remember your neighbor, and Stay safe! Semper Fi,

Mac, Paul P. McNamara Mayor of Escondido pmcnamara@escondido.org

terms became more flexible. I think that's the right thing. It shouldn't take a pandemic to persuade a company or organization to offer a more flexible, consumer-friendly refund policy. But I digress. I contacted the CFA Institute on your behalf. In response, a representative contacted you "to better understand" your position. You report that he felt that your reasons for not taking the exam at the deferred dates were not valid and tried to convince you to rethink your plans. The insitute denied your request for a refund.

But I have some good news for you. The CFA institute also postponed your December exam because of COVID-19. According to <a href="https://www.cfainstitute.org/ en/programs/cfa/exam/examupdates">its policy</a>, if you have been twice impacted by COVID-19 (meaning deferred from

June 2020 and then again the following December), you will have the option to request a refund. Christopher Elliott is the chief advocacy officer for Elliott Advocacy. Email him at chris@elliott.org or get help with any consumer problem by contacting him at http://www.elliott.org/help

Happy Days Are Here Again” and the Windows S mode

Business people we talk to complain that commercial activity slowed to a crawl last week. We at The Computer Factory had our slowest week in twenty years. It seems the whole country was on hold waiting for those “stimulus” checks to arrive. Now they’re here we’re all ready to cut loose. Politicians always live in the present so they don’t really care that our children will bear the burden of the debt and inflation created by their largess. They simply spend now and worry later. So let’s all

Page 12 • March 18, 2021

get out there and stimulate this sagging economy. Don’t even think about saving for a rainy day, if you stick it under the mattress, next year’s inflation is going to gobble it up, so spend like there are no tomorrows. Get what you need right now, new tires, a brake job, that leak under the sink and of course your computer. Do you need a clean-up, an upgrade to Win10, more memory or maybe another laptop or desktop PC? Before you consider Internet shopping or browsing Best Buy, Wal-Mart or Costco, come see us. We can show you how to spend that stimulus money so that you get the most “bang for your buck” and keep the stimulus money percolating right here in our local economy. If you shop the “dark side” you might as well just mail your check to Beijing. So take care of those tires and brakes, call the plumber and then come on in so we can make sure you have what you need to keep doing your thing and staying connected. Windows S mode: The S in Windows S mode stands for security. Microsoft introduced S mode in 2017. It is an option employed mainly in “enterprise” environments (education, corporations and government). It wraps the normal Win10 OS in a restrictive cloak making it easier for the ITs to control computer usage and prohibits users from loading programs or applications

not approved for distribution in the “Microsoft Store”. The fact that Win10 S mode will run only Microsoft approved applications makes it safe but not very flexible. For “enterprise” organizations providing computers to employees or students for a specific purpose, these restrictions serve a security purpose. For small business and home users these limitations are not practical. With only Microsoft approved products you are stuck with the Edge browser and Bing search engine. No Chrome or Firefox and no third party games or applications. We rarely run into S mode on customer PCs and we never

install it on our own new builds or Refurbs. Occasionally we will de-install S mode on a customer’s PC in order to accommodate their request for a driver or application. When S mode is uninstalled Windows 10 reverts to full function, but S mode deinstallation is a one way street. It cannot be reactivated.

For some situations, S mode could provide a solution. If you are providing a child with their first PC and want to limit their access to Internet applications, S mode could be the answer. If you have questions or want to know more about S mode, stop by or give us a call.

But I still haven't received the $500 security damage deposit. I need your help getting it back. I've been in touch with the property owner, Vrbo and the company handling the payments.

this. If your deposit was refundable, you should have received it by now. So what's going on?

Security deposits are an important part of the vacation rental system. It works exactly like a security deposit on an apartment. You pay a deposit, and when your rental ends, the owner returns the money. If there's damage to the rental, then the owner deducts the repair expense from the deposit. With Vrbo, the deposit gets returned quickly -- usually within a week of your last rental day. But what if you never used the rental?

I've waded through the correspondence between you, Vrbo and VacationRentPayment, which handles the payments. It looks like you filed an unsuccessful dispute of the $500 deposit on your credit card. That, combined with the pandemic, slowed things down -- a lot. Your case raises an interesting question. How long do you wait for a refund before filing a credit card dispute under the Fair Credit Billing Act? A month? Three? I think you were patient enough for normal circumstances. But these weren't normal circumstances. We were dealing with a once-in-a-lifetime pandemic. Usually, you should give a merchant at least one month or two just to be safe, before calling your credit card company. During a pandemic, refunds can take much longer.

I notice that you tried to reach out to VacationRentPayment and the owner to get your refund. But the refund was up to Vrbo, and it looks like it had to be authorized by the vacation rental platform. I list the names, numbers and email addresses of all the <a href="https://www.elliott.org/company-contacts/vrbo-customer-service-contacts/">Vrbo executives</a> on my consumer advocacy site, Elliott.org. I might have reached out to one of them by

email before filing a chargeback.

I contacted Vrbo on your behalf. It refunded the $500 security deposit.

California’s Wildfires MARIE WALDRON, State Assemblymember

California's most recent wildfire season set back the state's fight against climate change, putting more carbon dioxide into the air than millions of passenger vehicles driving over the course of a year! Last year, almost 4.2 million acres burned from 9,600 fires, emitting 112 million metric tons of carbon dioxide according to a California Air Resources Board report released on December 31st. Most importantly, these wildfires took 31 lives in 2020. We have to change our approach to fighting this growing threat, which is why my colleagues and I have introduced legislation that takes a comprehensive approach to preventing and fighting wildfires!

Reducing fuel and increasing defensive space is critical to fire fighting and prevention. Among other provisions, AB 297 which I have written about previously, will appropriate $500 million from the existing greenhouse gas reduction fund for fuel mitigation projects. AB 380 will help CalFIRE identify communities at the greatest risk of wildfire and provide regulatory relief so fuel mitigation projects can be prioritized for those areas. AB 926 will make roadside vegetation management projects eligible for

local assistance grants. My bill, AB 497, will appropriate funding for grants to local fire districts and agencies in high fire risk areas to purchase brush management equipment for use along backcountry roads. There are still other bills introduced this session that encourage landowners to be proactive about vegetation management and maintaining defensible space around their homes.

These are just a few of the fire-prevention bills introduced this session. Our air quality, economy and quality of life are suffering. A comprehensive, multi-pronged approach is necessary, and this package of bills is an important step in that direction. Capitol Office State Capitol, Suite #3104 Sacramento, CA 94249 (916) 319-2075
