I always think of the movie “American Graffiti” each time Escondido hosts its annual “Cruisin’ Grand” event. This year it runs every Friday from March 31, 2017, thru September 29, 2017, from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. A lot of the “Old Guys Rule” t-shirts can be spotted on both vintage car owners and observers, alike.
Bob Belford and Steve Crenshaw are two survivors of the 60s hippie culture and they proudly wear their Old Guys Rule t-shirts and always manage to make me laugh. Both are now in their mid to late-70s but they have refused to relinquish their humor down through the years. As they so eloquently put it: “We’re still full of piss and vinegar.”
Cruisin’ Grand brings out the best in Bob and Steve. It is a visual reminder of how things once were in America. “Back when the chrome was thick and the women were

straight,” Belford bellows out, then narrows his eyes as if waiting for any challenge. His game-face is a non-threatening one; an overly-exaggerated expression which often elicits chuckles to those within earshot range. Cruisin’ Grand arrives this Friday, March 31, 2017, and these two lovable characters are already revving up their nostalgia with generous dollops of humor.
By themselves they are not that funny, but together – well, that’s an entirely different story -- they come together like nitro and glycerin. “We play off each other,” Crenshaw confesses. “Bob here will say something and then I’ll try to top him. It’s a pissing contest and life is too damned short to take things too seriously.” Expecting them to say they had to walk the proverbial hundred miles, barefoot in the snow, to get to elementary school they, instead, ambush me by coming at me from a totally different direction. They said things like, “Why, when I was

growing up my favorite toy was dirt!”
I was greatly touched by the sentiments of another bystander who shared this great pearl of wisdom with me: “You know when you’re getting old when you cough, fart, sneeze and pee all at the same time!”
I’m not offended by such bare-knuckle pronouncements; it’s what makes us Americans; we are often in-your-face with truth and day-to-day life without the gloves on. At least it used to be that way. Many old-timers say political “overcorrection” has placed this current generation in a deep hole where everyone resides, like moles, afraid of the bright sunlight of truth and too afraid to voice any opinions as we once did when our country seemed a lot more free. And the U. S. Constitution seemed more a living, breathing document that stood behind our First Amendment Right guaranteeing Freedom of Speech. No more.
Just ask Daniel Lawrence Whitney

(Larry the Cable Guy). The normally funny Nebraskan says: “It’s gotten way outta control. You know. I really think that we’re at a point in this country where people really need to take the thumb outta their mouths and grow up a little bit and realize there’s a lot bigger problems out there than what a comedian did a joke about.”
Cruisin’ Grand seems an antidote to all that fussing and political over-correction. For example, sensitivity over one’s old age or being labeled an “old guy” is not a politically-incorrect taboo at Cruisin’ Grand. Quite the contrary.
The “Old Farts Racing” event last year (August 8, 2016) on the Cruisin Grand calendar drew approximately 8,000 spectators! This year’s 2017 event calendar will also include “Over the Hills Gang” night (June 9, 2017). And to reiterate, “Old Guys Rule” t-shirts are everywhere! I, personally, enjoy “British & German

Car Night,” slated for this August 8, 2017 and the ever-popular “Fire Truck Night” coming up on Sep. 8, 2017. I would definitely mark Fire Truck Night on your calendar. It’s not only interactive and educational to learn about these heroes, but adults and kids take periodic rides along the Grand Avenue route, complete with sirens and horns blaring away! This year’s event-calendar is too lengthy to be presented here so I would strongly advise readers to visit Cruisin’ Grand’s official website at: http://cruisingrand.com/events/calendar/upcoming. By not consulting the Cruisin’ Grand Event Night calendar last year, my good friend Hans Mueller almost blew a head gasket: “Friedrich, why the hell didn’t you tell me there was a British and German Car Night?!” He calmed down after a Double Guinness at O’Sullivan’s Irish Pub; in fact, after he threw back the second Guinness he felt like singing. Funnymen, Bob Belford and Steve Crenshaw have heard my friend, Hans, sing. Steve does not spare the rod: “When he sings, it’s like getting hit by a stick. No offense.” There’s a smorgasbord of events to sample at Cruisin’ Grand. This 2017 season will bring you 29 Fridays with different Cruisin’ Grand theme nights, just waiting for you to experience! Point being, even regular visitors to this annual event sometimes are unaware of different theme nights – they go just once, and that’s it. Past themes have been Model A and Model T Night, Antique Tractor & Gas & Steam Engine Night, Patriot Night
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 spent $6,500 on a young registered Black Angus bull. I put him out with the herd but he just ate grass and wouldn't even look at a cow. I was beginning to think I had paid more for that bull than he was worth. Anyhow, I had the vet come and have a look at him. He said the bull was very healthy, but possibly just a little young, so he gave me some pills to feed him once per day. The bull started to service the cows within two days, all my cows. He even broke through the fence and bred with all of my neighbor's cows! He's like a machine!
I don't know what was in the pills the vet gave him ... but they kind of taste like peppermint. ••••• Well, dadburn it! Now I'm confused. Did God bless America or did He save the Queen? •••••
with Escondido fireworks (God, I’m glad I did not miss this one!), Classic TBirds & Woodies Night, Hot Rod Night, and so on. I was really dazzled when I saw the “midget” race cars and go-carts zipping around Grand Avenue! I’ll never forget how entertained I was and how I laughed at the sight of these tiny vehicles darting here and there grabbing everyone’s attention. Cruisin’ Grand is the brain child of Steve Waldron. Waldron had a precious dream that became reality 18 years ago when he first introduced Cruisin’ Grand to the city of Escondido, back on April 7, 2000. Steve Waldron’s dream-come-true has been the biggest blessing for Escondido residents, and people in general, who make the trek here, each year, just as famed musician Eric Clapton often does. A grateful city has expressed their appreciation for Steve Waldron by making him a recipient of its “Spirit of Escondido Award.” But even Steve Waldron is still amazed at the growth and popularity of Cruisin’ Grand. I recently spoke to Waldron and he told me, “I never honestly thought it would grow this big.”
If Steve Waldron has a fault, it’s his humility. He deflects compliments as deftly as a volley ball spiker. “The people are the real success of Cruisin’ Grand,” he told me with great sincerity in his voice. “And the people who own these amazing cars are the stars of this event.” Steve Waldron’s success story is one city’s loss and Escondido’s gain. Born in Los Angeles in 1961, he moved to Escondido in 1972 and that’s the best city-to-city move since the Dodgers left Brooklyn. I asked Waldron a hardball question: If he could have any 3 classic-year cars, what would they be?
Everybody always makes fun of "Prairie Home Companion," but it's kept my mules calm through many a thunderstorm. ••••• I have noticed that when everyone is hammered they all think every problem is nailed. ••••• Man sitting at home on the veranda with his wife and he says, "I love you." She asks, "Is that you or the beer talking?"
He replies, "It's me............. talking to the beer." ••••• Anyone know a good spelling coach/Tourette's doctor? It's for poopyhead, a feirnd. The single area in which I approach within shouting distance of “expertise” is in the arguably important, though less so perhaps than I’d like it to be, arena of words. ••••• I know words. I’ve been using them since I could talk. Words are the first things that came out of my mouth, after crying sounds, and spit-up. ••••• "I contend that for a nation to try to tax itself into prosperity is like a man standing in a bucket and trying to lift himself up by the handle." -Winston Churchill "The beauty of the Second Amendment is that it will not be needed until they try to take it." Thomas Jefferson •••••
Waldron hesitated, then said: “Wow, that’s a tough question. I would have to pick a 1932 Ford Five-Window Hot Rod, a 1944 Ford Coupe, and a 1941 Willy’s. The ’32 Ford is America’s sweetheart hot rod if you saw American Graffiti you’ll see why. The ’44 Ford Coupe has brilliance of design. The year 1944 was a great year when cars from all over the world – across the board – were of very beautiful design and loveliness; 1944 was a great year for design. And the ’41 Willy’s were just gorgeous!” It is no small task what Waldron has accomplished. Much of what people reap in the form of remembrance, re-living precious dreams, or bringing families and friends together with a common celebration of our past heritage, is immeasurable. It is also expensive to keep Cruisin’ Grand in existence. Steve Waldron, to his great credit, achieves his fundraising goal of over $50,000 every year in order to just cover costs. The City of Escondido pays the necessary costs for extra police presence and roadblocks. Whenever Steve Waldron’s name is brought up in the company of my animated friends, Bob Belford and Steve Crenshaw, they suddenly fall into serious silence. Always playful and full of jokes, they both become respectfully earnest: “Steve Waldron is a bona fide hero to us,” Crenshaw says. “How can you not embrace someone who creates an event where families can gather together, or friends have a reunion, or different neighbors can recognize each other on common ground, like at Cruisin’ Grand?”
Steve Waldron is deeply wrong in one pivotal truth. He says the cars and the people are the real stars of Cruisin’ Grand. It would be the ultimate sin of omission not to include Steve Waldron’s name to that list of indispensables. A comparison can easily be draw here: Someone once said that the Disney
Husband takes the wife to a disco.
There's a guy on the dance floor living it large, break dancing, moon walking, back flips, the works. The wife turns to her husband and says, "See that guy? 25 years ago he proposed to me and I turned him down."
Husband says: "Looks like he's still celebrating!" DAMN FAIRIES
40 years of marriage..
A married couple in their early 60s are celebrating their 40th wedding anniversary in a quiet, romantic little restaurant.
Suddenly, a tiny yet beautiful fairy appeared on their table. She said, 'For being such an exemplary married couple and for being loving to each other for all this time, I will grant you each a wish.' The wife answered, 'Oh, I want to travel around the world with my darling husband.' The fairy waved her magic wand and - poof! - two tickets for the Queen Mary II appeared in her hands.
The husband thought for a moment: 'Well, this is all very romantic, but an opportunity like this will never come again. I'm sorry my love, but my wish is to have a wife 30 years younger than me.' The wife, and the fairy, were deeply disappointed, but a wish is a wish!
artists and cartoonists were the real talent behind the Disney cartoon empire. What some forget is that these same artists would never have achieved fame without Walt Disney’s guidance and visions. As one New York critic put it, “Walt Disney was like a painter, dipping his brush into different hues and colors of talent. Yes, these colors were brilliant, individually, but, when they were orchestrated and brought together – they made a mosaic of unimaginable magic!” Reality insists that the same parallel must be conceded to Steve Waldron. Like Disney, Waldron brings these car people together for a common purpose. Waldron’s vision, plan, and leadership brought to life a stagnant pallet of colors that remained – individually, insignificant – until they were united into a vision. And that vision was Cruisin’ Grand. Cruisin’ Grand can be unpredictable and full of surprises.
And if you keep your eyes peeled, you just might see a famous celebrity or two! Cruisin’ Grand is speeding along the highway of fame, gaining mileage of exposure through magazines, television, and even televised documentaries. It’s supposed to be the biggest event of its kind west of the Mississippi. The cars are not only parked in display fashion, they cruise constantly up-and-down the Grand Avenue, nonstop, throughout the evening.
World-famous musician/singer, Eric Clapton is no stranger to Cruisin’ Grand and seems to find timeout from his busy schedule to pop in for an occasional friendly visit. It’s almost an unknown fact that Eric Clapton once owned a

mansion here in Escondido in the 1980s and early ‘90s. He never forgot Escondido. It forever remained a special place within his heart. On November 7, 2006, Eric Clapton released his album titled: “The Road to Escondido.” The album won the music world’s highest honor, a Grammy Award. Upon his acceptance speech, it was the first time millions of American viewers had ever heard of the city of Escondido. The album title, “The Road to Escondido” went worldwide, giving Escondido global recognition in foreign countries which never before had even known of its existence in Southern California! Like a seasonal songbird finding its way home, the English Rock and Blues guitarist, Clapton, is often homewardbound during the Spring and Summer season to enjoy Escondido’s rich tradition called Cruisin’ Grand.
So, if you see people with overly-suspicious-looking floppy hats, and dark glasses, and worn-out jeans or, perhaps, delicate scarves around their heads, it could be Madonna, it could be Johnny Depp, who knows? Celebs are rarely recognized in casual, often slovenly clothes, as they walk about, unnoticed, in complete stealth-like fashion. If you doubt this, check out past issues of People Magazine – a simple silk scarf and black sunglasses have hidden the likes of the world’s biggest celebrities!
Cruisin’ Grand has been called the No. 1 “car cruise” event in the nation. This 2017 season is expected to draw up to 10,000 people on just opening night alone! And a massive overall total of 250,000 people (one-quarter of a million) are expected during this year’s run!

I love warm summer evenings at Cruisin’ Grand. Where cares and troubles seem to melt away like pink cotton candy, or cares forgotten while enjoying a dressed hot dog with all the works, all of which can be had at Cruisin’ Grand - but, ah, what an atmosphere! Talk about a table with a view!
There is a live DJ stationed at North Broadway where fun contests, such as hula hoop competitions and “Name that Tune” take place. Lucky winners get a prize. This Escondido stellar car event is a great prescription for fun and relaxation. Just nursing a colorful margarita with good friends and watching a loveaffair unfold before your very eyes; a falling-in-love with another era, another time -- it’s suddenly no longer 2017.
Recorded music fills the air everywhere at Cruisin’ Grand. Buddy Holly and the Crickets can be heard singing their 1958 hit song “Peggy Sue,” or perhaps you find it near-impossible to keep your feet motionless as Glenn Miller suddenly arrives over the loudspeakers playing the up-tempo “In the Mood,” which topped the charts for an unbelievable 13straight weeks in 1940. You smile and look around and see a different physical world. The cars all around you are from another time, a different generation, another America. And there is no cover charge for this priceless, precious view of our past heritage -- all seen through American eyes, as it once was. Long ago.
“Where does the time go?” Bob and Steve ask themselves out loud. Bob says in a tone of amazement, “I was 18 when I got

Padres vs SF Giants/April 7th – The Culture Caravan still has a few seats available for the Padres vs San Francisco Giants season opener at Petco Park. “Take me out to the ball game!” Experience the first pitch of
my brand new 1958 Chevy Impala. That was almost 60 years ago! It seems like only yesterday.” The words momentarily stun them into silence as they only shake their heads in wonder.
But not for long.
“My girlfriend found a bra in my ’58 Chevy,” Bob confesses with a sly grin. “She caught me red-handed, but I thought quickly on my feet. She looked daggers at me and asked: ‘Do you wear a bra, Bobby?’”
“I just smiled and said: ‘I do now!!’”
Both men are back in comedic form.
Cruisin’ Grand is more than just a compilation of old cars from yesteryear; it seems far more than the sum total of its own parts. It is a gathering place, a watering hole of memories which spring eternal within us all. Beyond the physical beauty of hot rods, muscle cars, and old antique fire-and-police vehicles on display, Cruisin’ Grand ushers in a nostalgic atmosphere that cannot be seen or touched.
But, it can be felt.
It’s as if a strange magic potion fills the air; you now hear Fats Domino singing his 1952 version of “Blueberry Hill,” or the hip-swiveling Elvis Presley is holding court over the loudspeakers as young children compete in a hula hoop contest. Some parents see themselves in those little shoes, all over again.
Girls still in their teens can be seen strolling the streets in their poodle dresses, and pony tails bouncing as they walk, and wearing bright red lipstick. It’s like “Back to the Future” all over again and you realize that the entire city blocks have, somehow, gone backwards in time – your eyes and ears now confirm to you

that you have just stepped into a virtual time machine!
Reminiscent of mythical Camelot, which disappears and reappears every 100 years, Cruisin’ Grand disappears only to return once a year for just a brief, precious period of time. Aside from the recorded music filling the air everywhere, there are also live bands and singers that truly bring your evening to a head. The live musical groups are greatly varied, thus offering a colorful musical palette to suit your style or mood. From Country-Western to Rockabilly, Jazz to Rock ‘n’ Roll, there is something for everyone.
Often the names of these music groups are as colorful as their tunes are catchy: Scaring the Wives, The Dirty Martinis, Too Much Fun, Cheeky Monkey Band, and Gino and the Lone Gunmen.
In short, the public has fallen in love with all these musical talents, including Hoodoo Blues Band, The Silver Spurs, Santana Bros. Band, and Dusty and the Love Notes, to cite just a few more examples. The most amazing thing is that all of this is free!
These musical groups are placed in strategic areas such as Juniper Street (where Jonnie Fox & The Satinettes have held court), Kalmia & Grand, Maple Street Plaza, etc. Many of these great bands and singers return year after year. Returning by popular demand is the remarkable talents of lead singer, Brian Nichols and

The Paper • Page 4 • March 30, 2017 Arrest Made in Attempt Kidnapping in Escondido
On May 9, 2016, at about 1pm, a 15 year old female was walking in the area of Washington Ave/Fig St. She was approached by a 40-50 year old white male in a red convertible, who asked her for directions. When she refused, he offered her money to get in the car but she again refused and walked away. On the same day at about 1:45pm, a 16 year old female was approached in the same manner, asking for directions. She was offered $10 to get in the car, and she did. The male drove the minor around for several minutes before dropping her off. A witness observed this incident and took photos of the vehicle with the minor seated inside. Both of these incidents were reported to police.
Through an investigation, it was determined the driver of the vehicle was 46 year old, San Marcos resident, Spicer Conant. A press release was disseminated with the vehicle and driver description, but no additional victims came for-
ward. At the time of the investigation, it was determined no crime had been committed and the case was suspended.
On Wednesday, March 15th, in the morning, an 11 year old female was walking to Mission Middle School when she was approached by an older white male in a red car asking her for directions. She ignored the male and continued on to school. Police were later notified of the incident. On Monday, March 20th, at about 8:15am, a 27 year old female was walking in the area of Broadway/El Norte Pkwy when she was approached by the same male in the same car, now described as a red Mazda Miata. He asked her for directions, which she gave him, but he then asked her to get in his car. She refused several times, but he persisted. The victim then took out her cell phone to take his photo and he sped away. Police were notified of this incident. At this time, Detectives in the Family Protection Unit reopened the case from 2016 and began a new investigation. On Tuesday morning, March 21st, at about 6:30 am Detectives began a surveillance of Mr. Conant. They followed him into Escondido where over the space of about 90 minutes he attempted to get five different females into his car, all in the general area of Mission Ave/Broadway. The ages were 14, 15, 16, 16, and 18. The last female, the 18 year old, got into the car. Officers immediately feared for her safety and made an enforcement stop on the car, taking Mr. Conant into custody without further incident in the area of 13th Ave/Escondido Blvd. A search of his vehicle revealed an illegal assault rifle. Mr. Conant will be booked for PC 220207(a) – Attempted Kidnapping, Felony Possession of an Illegal Assault Rifle
Staff is pretty much bilingual . . very helpful, very friendly.
Real. Authentic. Tasty. Yes, they serve all kinds of other foods and they’re open every day of the week. I’m just partial to their tacos on Taco Tuesdays at 99 cents each. You’re in the mood for tamales? They’ve got ‘em. Burritos? Yup.
Man About Town
Remember when your pals who are ‘in the know” always told you to check out the restaurants where the locals dine? Particularly if you’re looking for ethnic food? Good advice.
If you like Latino food . . . lemme clue you in. “Taco Tuesdays.” Every Tuesday at Latinos Market, 525 W. Grand, Escondido, you can buy tacos for just 99 cents each. Delish!
Chicken, carne asada, a whole lot of different ways to enjoy this tasty treat.
Understand . . . this ain’t the Ritz. Not fancy. Not at all. Very much down home and a typical Latino market with most all groceries, produce, and meat products labeled in both Spanish and ‘English.
Swing by there on a Tuesday evening and we’re likely to bump into each other. I’ll be the one wolfing down about three tacos. With onions. Viva los tacos!
••••• Speaking of restaurants, and I just was, everytime I visit Charlie’s in Escondido, I learn something new.
At a minimum, I listen to “the old professor” as he waxes on philosophically about the food service in general, about life, about business.
Charlie Mitich is an import from what was then known as Yugoslavia. He joined the US Army while in Europe and they sent him here, stateside, to learn the English language. Then to basic training, then to advanced infantry training . . . all the while learning and practicing his new found language.
“English is a hard language to learn,” he said. “But it was my number one goal. Learn to speak, read, and write the English language.”
Sad to say that’s often not the number one goal of today’s immigrants. The

The old Coast Highway bridge that spans the San Luis Rey River may be on its way out. The bridge, 88 years old, is 950 feet in length, is located south of Harbor Drive and the Camp Pendleton Marine Corps base and is said to be “deteriorated, sructurally deficient, and seismically vulnerable,” according to a study released by the city. The study also said that the bridge could well collapse if one of the steel beams involved in the bridge structure were to break.
This investigation is on-going, and anyone with information or who may have been a victim of Mr. Conant is asked to call Detective Damian Jackson at (760) 839-4932, or leave an anonymous tip at 760-743-TIPS (8477).
Justice Department Investigating Congressman Duncan Hunter
The Justice Department has begun an investigation into possible criminal actions by Rep. Duncan D. Hunter, RAlpine, sidelining for the time being the House Ethics Committee, which has been looking into the congressman’s confessed misuse of campaign funds for personal expenses.
Hunter had already acknowledged errors in reporting campaign expenses and agreed to pay back into the fund. The Justice Department apparently found enough additional evidence to begin a formal investigation into Hunter’s actions.
If cleared, he would continue holding his congressional seat; if found guilty of any criminal wrongdoing he would immediately leave office and a Special

“After I got out of the Army I continued to practice my new languge . . but now my number one goal had changed. I wanted to find a job. And I did. I entered the food service industry and learned from the ground up. I learned baking, I learned delivery, I learned customer service, I learned to cook . . . I learned a lot and, when I had a chance, I got into the business as an owner. And I worked hard. And I was successful. But that was a different era. You could make good money then in the restaurant business . . . today, it’s not so easy. You have to be competitive and costs go up. Food costs go up, labor goes up, but you can’t just increase the prices on the menu . . . you have to stay competitive . . . which means you have to absorb the increased costs and can’t really pass those costs on to your customer. They’d wind up going to another restuarant.”

Coast Highway Bridge May Be Replaced
If a new bridge is built it would likely be built of concrete and would meet current seismac standards.
Construction is expected to cost between $18 million and $22 million, with additional costs for the design, right-of-way acquisition and more. The project will be funded by the Federal Highway Administration’s Highway Bridge Program. Coast Highway was at one time the main route between San Diego and Los Angeles. Now the San Diego County portion of the highway ends at Harbor Drive, and Interstate 5 — built in the 1960s — takes traffic through Camp Pendleton.
City officials said the new bridge will be efficient and cost effective. Concrete structures cast in place are “pretty much the norm for California” these days, he said. That means many contractors can build them, and competition helps keep the costs down. Discussions on the project continue within various city departments.

the sensational Wi-Fi’s. They seemed to have found the keys to the city’s heart!
It is strongly advised to consult your Cruisin’ Grand Calendar of Events to better plan your experience. To repeat, visit their official website listed at the top of this story. You’ll be glad you did.
Walking along Grand Avenue during Cruisin’ Grand can lead to exciting explorations, such as visiting one of the half dozen antique shops strewn along the way. They’re well worth a visit, trust me. Escondido Antique Mall located at 135 W. Grand Ave., Urban Barn at 404 E. Grand Ave., Grab Bag Antiques located at 150 E. Grand Ave, and In the Cave at 227 E. Grand Ave, are just a few wonderful examples. Always playful jokesters, Steve Crenshaw could not resist: “I get kicked out of those antique shops because every time I walk inside I ask, ‘What’s new?’” Bob, at first, doesn’t get it – then he laughs out loud and says: “Antique – what’s new?!” and then pumps the air with his fist. Bob Belford and Steve Crenshaw remind me of playful otters. They’re both Escondido transplants from Canoga Park, a neighborhood in the San Fernando Valley region of Los Angeles. I first met them at my Uncle Miltie’s (owner Milt Larsen’s) Magic Castle in the Hollywood Hills. (My Uncle Miltie is reading this very article, as I send him all hardcopies of my stories. It’s exhilarating to reflect that such Hollywood notables are fans of THE PAPER.) As far as Belford and Crenshaw are concerned, getting older is not necessarily a

negative. These two Pollyannas remain sweet-natured optimists. Wearing their Old Guys Rule t-shirts they proudly refer to the t-shirt lettering as their “Badge of Honor.” Both Bob and Steve puff out their chests to emphasize their point. “If you think you deserve one of these beauties you can join our rank-and-file.” The “Old Guys Rule” website clearly echoes the sentiments of Bob and Steve, referring to their t-shirt as a “Badge of Honor,” along with this philosophy: “The toils of youth are now your experience . . . no longer the student, but the teacher.”
Such dragsters have such a rich fuel mixture that they often ignite hot yellowwhite flames which shoot-out from the rear exhaust pipes. Steve Crenshaw makes a comment on this: “The last time I saw flames shoot-out like that was after my Grandpa finished his second bowl of hot Texas chili beans! God rest his soul.” (Bob Belford punches Steve for spinning such a yarn.)
For readers who wish to visit and/or purchase an Old Guys Rule t-shirt can do so by contacting their official website for details: http://oldguysrule.com This website touches the heartstrings with elements of truth: “There comes a time in your life when comfort meets substance. When all your hard work seems to have paid dividends, and the world is at your command. All the things you hoped you could do someday, you’re doing.”
Nitro Night at Cruisin’ Grand features one of these dragsters. They obviously cannot race them, but the next best thing is they fire-up the dragster and rev the engine! The sound is intense and usually spectators have to cover or place plugs in their ears. At actual drag-racing venues where these monsters run fullthrottle against each other, ear plugs and even earmuffs are often handed out to fans at these top-fuel dragster meets. As one source explains: “The sound is so intense that it is not only heard, but it is also felt as pounding vibrations all over one’s body . . . making many people feel as though the entire drag strip is being bombed!”
For Bob Belford and Steve Crenshaw, their past hard work is allowing them to do all those things they hoped to do someday – like they are both doing now – anticipating a great summer of leisure enjoyment at Cruisin’ Grand.
If you don’t believe that description – just show up on Nitro Night. But bring ear plugs.
One of the summer event nights I find most fascinating is called “Nitro Night.” It is one of the most popular theme nights and has been known to draw upwards of 50,000 spectators on this one night alone! It features what are called nitro dragsters. They are top-fuel dragsters that are the quickest accelerating vehicles in the entire world. They are officially the fastest “sanctioned” category of drag race vehicles. They reach speeds up to 335 mph and can cover 1,000 feet in 3.7-seconds! A top-fueled dragster can accelerate from a zero standstill start to 100 mph in as little as 0.8 seconds! These nitro dragsters are what my
Nitro Night at Cruisin’ Grand is a onetime event so you may wish to consult your Cruisin’ Grand Event Calendar to circle that date.
Bob Belford and Steve Crenshaw never remain serious long. They continue to try to top each other, especially since they know I’m a writer for THE PAPER. With a sparkle in his eye, Belford releases another car-related bit of levity: “My wife had her driver’s test the other day. She got 8 out of 10. The other 2

guys jumped clear!”
Steve laughs, pulls his pants up, readjusts his belt and like a tennis player, serves up his return shot: “I gave up my seat to a blind person in the bus. That’s how I lost my job as a bus driver!” I take my leave; but not before saying goodbye: “See you guys at Cruisin’ Grand.”
I’m not really sure they hear me as they continue to trade barbs in the backdrop.
As I walk away I can still hear them in the distance, trying to top one another. “I want to die peacefully in my sleep, like my grandfather,” Bob shouts, “not screaming and yelling like the passengers in his car!” This time, I can hear them both laughing.
As I continue to walk, their voices and laughter becomes weaker and less audible. Now, I barely hear the last vapor trail of their car jokes: “What’s the difference between a high-performance BMW and a porcupine?” One of them yells the answer: “A porcupine has the pricks on the outside!” I’m not sure which one said it, Bob or Steve. At this point, it doesn’t really matter. I’m on my way to my favorite watering hole, O’Sullivan’s Irish Pub on Grand Avenue. Owner, Dennis O’Sullivan has every right to be proud of his establishment (he also has one in Carlsbad). The food at O’Sullivan’s Irish Pub is to my liking and so is the ambience. It reminds me of my time spent in Europe. There’s a popular Irish saying that says: “When the Irish eyes are smiling, they’re usually up to something.” That’s funny.
But it can also be said that: When everyone’s eyes are smiling -- those smiling eyes can be found at Cruisin’ Grand.

representation in America and to recruit new members, both lay persons as well as new clerical members . . . new priests, new nuns.
He finally arranged for a token force of just two nuns to travel to America on board an American troops ship. It was safer because a convoy would escort it - protecting agains submarines and enemy air attacks. It knew where to go and when.
All during the ocean journey the nuns hear the troops talking about “man, when I get home and back in the states the first thing I’m gonna do is get me a great big ol’ Coney Island Hot Dog!” Over and over they heard this refrain.
So, after docking in New York and walking the streets of the city they saw a Coney Island Hot Dog Stand. They each purchased a Coney Island Hot dog and began to consume it.
Sister Mary Margaret took a bite, then looked at Sister Elizabeth and said, “Oh dear me! What part of the dog did you get?” Our table exploded with laughter.

My bills are moving
March has been a busy month in Sacramento as the Legislature moves into high gear. Happily, four of my bills have received overwhelming bi-partisan support, all passing votes in their respective committees on March 21.
My Assembly Bill 182, the Heroin and Opioid Public Education (HOPE) Act, passed the Assembly Health Committee in a unanimous vote. The HOPE Act will combat the growth of heroin and opioid abuse throughout California. The bill creates a comprehensive multicultural public education program to describe the effects and warning signs of heroin use and opioid abuse to assist the public in identifying when help is needed and the pathways that are available for help. A second bill, AB 502, also passed the Public Safety Committee with unanimous support. The bill establishes a two-year pilot program in San Diego County for the victims of elder or dependent

Pleased to report superb customer service from the folks at Honda of Escondido. Service Advisor named Kevin MacAdam took me by the hand, treated me with kid gloves, had the mechanics check out my car. I recently bought a “new” used care from a private party - a 2006 Honda. Love the car . . . but I thought I detected a very low pitched “ticking” thought it might be a problem with the tappets. Better get it checked out. Had one independent mechanic check it out and said nothing was wrong but wanted to be sure - so I took it to the experts on Honda, Escondido Honda. Surprise! Nothing wrong with the car. Mechanics test drove it, listened to it carefully at idle and with engine accelerated . . . no unusual noise.
Even bigger surprise . . . “Here’s our car, Mr. Davis. There’s no charge. We were happy to be of service.” Kudos to ownership and management for great service - and to Kevin MacAdam. Thanks to all.

A third bill, AB 478, raises the minimum age for a fishing license from 16 to 18 years, allowing kids to fish for free and enjoy the great outdoors. AB 478 passed the Appropriations Committee without opposition. Lastly, AB 658 unanimously passed the Health Committee. The bill delays collection of Clinical Laboratory Licensure fees by the Laboratory Field Services branch of the Department of Public Health for two years, encouraging efficient operations by allowing the branch to spend down an accumulated surplus of unspent fees. I will provide more updates about my legislation in the future. I’m looking forward to a productive year, serving you, the wonderful people of the 75th Assembly District.

As author of the recent cover story, "When Dinosaurs Terrorized San Diego," published in The Paper, March 16, 2017, I wish to make a correction. The "T-Rex Planet" exhibit is not scheduled for this upcoming 2017 San Diego County Fair as incorrectly mentioned in my cover story. The TRex Planet exhibit already appeared at the Del Mar Fairgrounds several weeks ago, on January 14 & 15, 2017. This past appearance of the T-Rex Planet at the Del Mar Fairgrounds has no connection, whatsoever, with the upcoming San Diego County Fair, nor is this exhibit scheduled to appear at the San Diego County Fair.

A Letter from San Pasqual
Dear Editor: I read your article, “The Disappearing Indians,” with great disappointment and sadness. This is the type of article we would have expected to see back in the dark days of the Termination Era, when the United States was seeking to terminate Indian tribes. Much progress has been made since then but this article shows that much work remains to be done. Your article is a throwback to the days when Indian tribes were assaulted with baseless aspersions and innuendo. The article also refects a deep misunderstanding of the Indian tribes and tribal enrollment, and federal Indian law, and the laws governing the San Pasqual Band. It is also riddled with misstatemetns of fact and law. I found your derision of our tribal elders and tribal law particularly offensive. We honor and respect our elders and our Tribe’s Constitution, and we will continue to proudly do so. ---- This case was groundcd in facts specific to Marus Alto., Sr., and the

Historically Speaking by Tom Morrow
1940, Philby was appointed as an instructor in the arts of "black propaganda."
In early 1944 MI-6 re-established Section IX, and Philby took a position there where he was able to alert the NKVD, the Russian secret service, about all British intelligence on the Soviets … including what the American OSS (forerunner of the CIA) had shared with the British about the Soviets.
The Meaning of British Letters & Numbers, MI-5 and MI-6
More and more the security services of the United Kingdom’s MI-5 and MI-6 monikers are mentioned in news reports, but what do they mean?
MI-5 (Military Intelligence, Section 5), is the United Kingdom's domestic counter-intelligence and security agency and is part of its intelligence machinery alongside the Secret Intelligence Service (MI-6). The service is directed to protect British parliamentary democracy and economic interests, and counter terrorism and espionage within the UK. MI-5 … like the FBI does in the U.S. The Secret Intelligence Service (SIS), commonly known as MI-6 (Military Intelligence, Section 6), is the foreign intelligence agency of the British government … a counterpart to our CIA. Think “James Bond.” Author and Bond creator Ian Fleming was a member of MI-6 during World War II. The existence of MI-6 was not officially acknowledged until 1994. It forms a part of the UK's intelligence machinery alongside MI-5 and Defense Intelligence.
During the Second World War the human intelligence work of MI-6 was overshadowed by several other efforts: the cryptanalytic effort undertaken by the Government Code and Cypher School, the bureau responsible for interception and decryption of foreign communications at Bletchley Park where the infamous German “Enigma” machine’s code was broken; the extensive "double-cross" system run by MI-5 to feed misleading domestic intelligence to German spies; and imagery intelligence activities conducted by the RAF Photographic Reconnaissance Unit. Ironically, leading up to World War II, MI-6 assisted the Nazi Gestapo secret police, via "the exchange of information about Communism"; as late as October 1937, well into the Nazi era.
In 1940, the second member of the “Cambridge Spy Ring,” journalist and Soviet agent Kim Philby applied for a vacancy in Section D of SIS, and was vetted by his friend and fellow Soviet agent Guy Burgess. When Section D was absorbed by Special Operations Executive (SOE) in summer of
Severe damage was done by Philby in August 1945, when NKVD intelligence officer Konstantin Volkov tried to defect to the UK, offering the names of all Soviet agents working inside British intelligence services. Philby received the memo on Volkov's offer, and alerted the Soviets so they could arrest him. The Russian agent never made it to England.
MI-6 operations against the USSR were extensively compromised by the fact the post-war CounterEspionage Section, R5, was headed for two years by Philby. Although Philby's continued damage was mitigated for several years by his transfer as Head of Station in Turkey, he later was assigned as the MI-6 intelligence liaison officer at the British Embassy in Washington D.C. In that capacity he compromised a program of joint U.S.-UK paramilitary operations. As MI-6 investigators closed in on him, Philby escaped to Moscow in 1953, following his friends and fellow members of the "Cambridge Spy Ring," Donald Maclean and Guy Burgess.
During the Global War on Terror, MI-6 has exchanged information with the CIA. In the run-up to the invasion of Iraq in 2003, it is alleged, although not confirmed, that MI-6 conducted Operation Mass Appeal which was a campaign to plant stories about Iraq's weapons of mass destruction (WMD) in the media. Evidently it worked. The U.S. attack on Iraq was for fear of WMDs. In November 2011, MI-6 helped capture Libyan leader Col. Saif alIslam Gaddafi. The top-secret mission, dubbed Operation X to disguise its purpose, used modern electronic intelligence (ELINT) technologies to bug the Libyan leader along with his friends and family.
Today, both MI-5 and MI-6 work closely with the FBI and CIA and are heavily involved in tracking down and capturing ISIS-influenced jihadists who have attacked and killed dozens of Brits and Americans through acts of domestic terror both in the UK and U.S.

Trump Budget Proposal Affects Escondido
The Federal government provides funding to local communities to address specific needs. Over time, Escondido has received millions of dollars of these special funds called Community Development Block Grants (CDBG) and HOME funds. President Trump’s proposed budget will eliminate these funds for local communities.
CDBG dollars are intended to support
After a couple of minutes, the girl walked quietly to the guy's table and said: "I study psychology, and I know what a man is thinking. I guess you felt embarrassed, right?”
The guy then responded with a loud voice: “$50 FOR ONE NIGHT? THAT'S TOO MUCH!” All the people in the library looked at the girl who was now in shock.
The guy whispered in her ear: "I study law, and I know how to screw people." I often wonder if illiterate people get the full effect of alphabet soup? A meal without wine is called breakfast.

urban core upgrades to infrastructure – think parks, sidewalks, community center upgrades, code enforcement officers, community services staff etc. A portion of CDBG funds is made available to local non-profits who provide interventions and support for residents of areas with lower incomes – Meals on Wheels, Interfaith Community Services and others. HOME funds have been used to support affordable housing project development and rehabilitation – think Veteran housing and senior housing.
If the proposed budget is approved, local governments throughout the country will have to grapple with the loss of funding. There is no substitute local funding to absorb the programs and services we currently support with these federal grants. This is an important time to pay attention to federal budgets and beyond that, the impact on local community well-being. Nothing has happened yet, but if it does, you’ll notice the impact right here in Escondido.

The waitress watched as the man slid all the way down his chair and out of sight under the table. Still the woman appeared calm and unruffled, apparently unaware her dining companion had disappeared.
The waitress, thinking this was a bit risqué behavior that might offend other diners, went over to the table and tactfully, began by saying to the woman, "Pardon me, ma'am, but I think your husband just slid under the table."
The woman calmly looked at her and said: JUST IN: The sun came out and dried up all the rain. No sign of Itsy. Spider family worried. Details as we receive them.

The Pastor Says . . .
Pastor Richard Huls (Retired)
ARE WE LISTENING?
A friend recently asked me to join him for a cup of coffee. During our hour together, he answered his cell phone twice and responded to a text message. I know he is a busy person, but I wonder if he heard anything I said in our conversation. Was he listening?
There have been times in my life when my wife asked me if I heard a word she said. I must admit that I am often distracted and don’t listen. What does this say about me or anyone who is too busy to really listen? Jesus says in Matt. 11:15, “He who has ears to hear, let him hear.” I believe there is a need to heed that exhortation. Many are not listening, because they are

so preoccupied with their busy world, they miss the sounds of truth, the songs of the birds, the needs of others, the invitations of God for forgiveness and His love, the instructions of when to use our cell phones and not use them, and even the call to obey the law. When Jesus exhorted the people to listen, it was to help them see the truth. The problem was not listening at all or to the wrong thing.
There are ways to truly listen and hear what is being said. One way is to discipline the self to hear, by directing one’s entire attention to the source, perhaps a spouse, child, friend, or even God. It is then to repeat it back for clarification, because we often misunderstand, due to our lack of attention, especially in this age. We can help ourselves to hear also by giving respect to the speaker, something he/she deserves.
To truly listen is to do ourselves a service. Think of all that is lost, by not truly hearing, with all the mistakes we make, all the missed meetings, and lame excuses we make for being late because we didn’t listen and, worst of all, we miss the many blessings God promises, simply because we did not listen.

Dear Customers, Yes, we ARE making fun of you in Vietnamese. Sincerely, Nail Salon Ladies
Uncle Kieth was on his way home with 3 cases of ammo he'd bought at the annual Fairbanks (Alaska) gun show.
On the way home he stopped at the gas station where a drop-dead gorgeous blonde was filling up her car at the next pump. She looked at the ammo in the back of Kieth's pick-up and said in a very sexy voice, "I'm a big believer in barter, big boy". "Would you be interested in trading sex for ammo?"
Kieth thought for a few seconds and then asked, "what kinda ammo ya got?" McQuillan walked into a bar and ordered martini after martini, each time removing the olives and placing them in a jar. When the jar was filled with olives and all the drinks consumed, the Irishman started to leave.
"S'cuse me", said a customer, who was puzzled over what McQuillan had done,
"what was that all about?"
"Nothin' , said the Irishman, "me wife just sent me out for a jar of olives!"
An old, blind cowboy wanders into an all-girl biker bar by mistake. He finds his way to a bar stool and orders a shot of Jack Daniels. After sitting there for a while, he yells to the bartender, 'Hey, you wanna hear a blonde joke?' The bar immediately falls absolutely silent.
In a very deep, husky voice, the woman next to him says,
'Before you tell that joke, Cowboy, I think it is only fair, Given that you are blind, that you should know five things: 1. The bartender is a blonde girl with a baseball bat. 2. The bouncer is a blonde girl.
3. I'm a 6-foot tall, 175-pound blonde woman with a black belt in karate.
4. The woman sitting next to me is blonde and a professional weight lifter.
5. The lady to your right is blonde and a professional wrestler.
Now, think about it seriously, Cowboy. Do you still wanna tell that blonde joke?'

Improving Vista’s Streets & Parks
Maintaining the integrity of the roads for motorists is a priority for the city of Vista. With the use of a slurry seal process which fills the surface cracks and spaces, the city is able to provide the most efficient and cost-effective preventive maintenance designed to extend the life of the roads. The citywide slurry seal project begins in April and runs through July. Check the city website for a list of the streets included in the project. Construction on the two new skate parks should be completed in the
summer and the City will hold a grand opening ceremony to introduce the parks to the community at that time. One of Vista’s older parks, Bub Williamson, built in 1986 and located along Grapevine Road is undergoing a redesign. The project includes replacing the softball fields with an outdoor lighted arena soccer field, the addition of a dog park, remodeling the restroom facilities, and installing two tot lots. For information on all of the City’s construction projects, check the City of Vista website at CityofVista.com.

Fred T. Martin Lover of Jesus, Fisher of Men
VISTA ~ Fredrick Thomas Martin was born on March 11, 1930 in Seattle to Frank and Aimee Pelzel. After his parent’s divorce at age four, Fred and older sister Frances were adopted by Charles and Beth Martin, also of Seattle, and Fred grew up on their farmland which included a timber business. Fred joined the Navy at 17 during the Korean War and was an engine mechanic on the U.S.S. Florikan, a submarine rescue ship. After the Navy, in 1952 Fred settled in southern California where his mother lived. Fred went into the VA hospital for depression, and by reading a Bible there, he accepted the Lord. He joined a men’s Bible study group in Redondo Beach, "Fishermen’s Club" led by Paul Walker, and grew as a Christian. In 1956, the Fishermen’s Club men started
San Diego’s North County. They were married in 1993. Over the years both worked hard to establish legal residency. Martha had graduated from Oceanside High School and Julio took ESL courses at night. Both eventually earned “Green Cards.” In 1996 Martha gave birth to Rodrigo, a native born American citizen and they both began working to earn their own citizenship. In 2001 Daisy was born and on December 13th 2001, Julio took the oath of citizenship at Golden Hall in downtown San Diego along with thirteen hundred others. On Wednesday March 22nd this year, Julio and Martha were back at Golden Hall again, this time Martha stood with over eighteen hundred others from ninety three countries to became a citizen of the USA.
community honors, protects and supports the cultural and religious traditions rooted in their native heritage both here and in the villages of their birth. The community provides support in many other ways. It comes together to provide financial support to families with health or burial expenses. It may provide a loan to help start a business or save a home. It helps to maintain traditional cultural and religious traditions like quinceneras, Guelaguetza, Posada, kermess, Fiesta de la Virgin de Guadalupe Dia de los Muertos and Dia del Niño. These traditions of family, religion and culture bind present day American Oaxacans together in support of one another like early
Irish and Italian immigrants were united by their heritage and American pioneer families were united by necessity. We have been witness to the growth of the Sarmiento family for over 22 years. We have been enriched by exposure to their culture and enlarged by our exposure to the food. Julio has our trust and the keys to our business. He and Martha have raised two terrific children and we are proud to have been a part of it. Congratulations Martha, on becoming a citizen of the USA and thank you for being a part of our lives.
Today Martha works for the Vista school district and, Julio is celebrating twenty-two years with The Computer Factory. Rodrigo is a sophomore and soccer player at Oregon State University and Daisy is an honor student and sophomore at Oceanside High School. The Sarmientos are now an “all American family” but like generations of immigrants that came before, they have not forgotten their heritage and culture. They play an active part in the large and strong Oaxaca community here in North County. This
attending a small church in Redondo Beach called Grace Chapel, where Fred met Bonnie Shreve, a school teacher, and where they were wed on April 13, 1957. Daughter Debbie was born the next year. In the mid 1950s, Fred was mentored by a journeyman carpenter, Mr. Burley, and began working for his folks in Lawndale, building rental units, and later commercial buildings on properties he bought. He also began buying and reselling used cars, which continued throughout his career. In 1962, Fred and Bonnie bought a home in Rolling Hills, and the next year daughter Dottie was born. Fred and Bonnie attended Rolling Hills Covenant Church. In 1970, the family moved to Vista, and Fred built a large house which over the years became host to many youth groups, swim parties, renters, international students, visiting families, and traveling missionaries. In Vista, Fred continued his building work and used car business, and he also had water truck and U-Haul businesses. In every church he attended, Fred taught boys Sunday School and served on committees and teams such as the missions committee and the pre-prayer team. Fred was active in Community Church of Vista, Palomar Community Church, and New Community Church of Vista. Fred was also active in the Christian Businessmen’s Committee and later Promise Keepers men’s weekly fellowship and prayer groups. Fred and Bonnie went on many missions construction trips, to Brussels, Maui, Aruba and Mexico, to build or remodel churches, homes and schools. Fred and Bonnie volunteered with the Vista Jail, the Servicemen’s Center in Oceanside, and the Life Care Center in Vista. Fred invited many homeless men to stay at his place, gave out the gospel wherever he went, and even offered to pray for caregivers and doctors when he
was very sick. Fred read the Bible daily and prayed every morning and evening for the lost, the sick, and the hurting as well as for missionaries, ministries, prisoners, and refugees. Fred is survived by his loving wife of sixty years, Bonnie; his daughters, Debbie, Dottie, and Judy; his halfbrother, Tom Pelzel and half-sister, Marie Pelzel; his nephews and nieces and their families; and many surrogate children and grandchildren of several nationalities. Fred moved to his heavenly home on March 8, 2017, with burial at San Marcos Cemetery on March 16, 2017. A celebration of life service will be held on April 1, 2017 at 2:00 PM at New Community Church of Vista, main sanctuary, 165 Eucalyptus Ave., Vista, with a reception following in the Clubhouse behind the sanctuary.

With this background as a backdrop, I hope you will agree that the attacks leveled against the Tribe in your article are meritless and reflect poorly on The Paper. Sincerely,
Allen Lawson Tribal Spokesman Chairman
Editor’s Note: We thank Chairman Lawson for his excellent letter of response. It was much longer than presented here but that portion that was edited for space was a restatement of items we had already addressed in our story, in depth. We agree that the matter has now been litigated and the decision is final. Bottom line: The San Pasqual Band of Mission Indians won in the Courts. The Paper, however, stands by our article.

Bowker be appointed as personal representative to administer the estate of the decedent. The petition requests authority to administer the estate under the Independent Administration of Estates Act.

A hearing on the petition will be held in this court as follows: Date: 04/27/2017 Time: 1:30 p.m. Dept: PC2 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 petitioner: Daniel F.

Leveraging Home Equity in Retirement
According to a 2014 AARP survey, most seniors, 88% of age 65+ would like to stay in their current residences as long as possible. However, their ability to do this could be greatly hindered by the lack of finances needed to actually age in place. In fact, over the next 20 years, more than half of those over 62 are projected to have less than $25,000 in financial assets, based on a 2016 Bipartisan Policy Center report, “Healthy Aging Begins at Home;” far less than might be required for home modifications. This is why many
health status. This also allows doctors to consult with others concerning conditions and treatment options.
Dental Insurances have had a different coding for services than medical until now. Now with the transition to a one base medical billing system, there are several dental services that fall into the medical coding system, and are billed using those medical codes. Interestingly enough, medical insurance in the past haven't covered decay in teeth even though it's actually a bacterial decay of the teeth. Dental Insurance was established to cover this malady and many others Yet, an infection of the supporting structures such as the gums (periodontal disease) is now covered in most cases
older Americans are tapping into their home equity to help fund longevity in retirement. For many older Americans, home equity accounts for the largest portion of their net worth. That said, consumers approaching retirement with modest savings and substantial home equity may want to consider utilizing this valuable asset to help them live in their homes with stability.
Noted financial expert and frequent Forbes contributor, Jamie Hopkins, reinforces home equity as a potential solution. In his Oct. 7, 2015 column, Hopkins stated “. . . strategic uses of home equity, especially reverse mortgages, could save many people from financial failure in retirement and help stem the overall retirement income crisis facing Americans … Reverse mortgages are a viable tool for retirement income planning, and while not for everyone, could serve as a saving grace for many baby boomers facing a retirement income shortfall.” Accessible to homeowners aged 62 and older, a Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM) loan enables older Americans to tap into a portion of their equity to help supplement retirement income. With
under medical insurance. Dental Insurance is very limited by their maximum caps ($1500, $2500, etc.) a patient can use each year, whereas medical coverage is just the opposite requiring a minimum deduction paid ($500, $1500, $3000, etc.) above which they will pay a portion (80%, 50%, etc.) without a yearly cap and with lifetime cap at several million dollars. Required medical coding is now bringing our facility under the more realistic classifications of medical treatment and allows us to offer our patients treatment options than were offered and/or limited under their dental insurances. Examples include medical treatments for periodontal scalings, offered dentally once every 3 years, rather than being offered on a ongoing basis until the dis-
ease becomes managable and/or cured. Another is loss of bone structure due to infection requiring removal of teeth and needing replacement by implants. Your dental insurance may cover one (maybe two) replacements a year maximum whereas your medical insurance will allow total treatment of that area involved (including a whole arch) without a limitation on the number of implants. A much better treatment coverage for a fraction of the cost. In the end this system will be benefit everyone. Less chances for patient error and better coverage as well.

a HECM reverse mortgage loan, homeowners aren’t required to make monthly mortgage payments but need to continue paying their property taxes, homeowner’s insurance, and home maintenance costs, and otherwise comply with the terms of the loan. Just like a conventional mortgage loan, if the homeowner defaults on the loan or doesn’t comply with the terms, the borrower may face foreclosure—but this isn’t unique to the reverse mortgage transaction. The bottom line is that leveraging home equity may pro-
vide a viable solution for older Americans who prefer to stay in their homes as long as possible.
