Volume 44 - No. 10
by General Merrill A. (Tony) McPeak, USAF (ret.)
Del Rio could be the movie set of a West Texas border town. It's windy, and the weather tends toward seasonal extremes. A large U.S. Air Force Base six miles east of town is named after Jack T. Laughlin, a pilot and Del Rio native killed over Java within a few weeks of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor.
Our Thunderbird's Team flies into Laughlin on Oct. 20, 1967, for an air show the next day, honoring 60 or so lieutenants graduating from pilot training. We go through the standard pre-show routine. Lead and 5 The Paper - 760.747.7119

do their show-line survey routine, while the rest of us walk the rounds of the hospital and school and give interviews. Next day, proud parents watch as new pilots pin on wings. At noon, we brief at Base Ops. As usual, an inspection team comprising base and local dignitaries joins us for a photo session before we step to the jets.
The film Bandolero! is in production near the base, and its stars, Jimmy Stewart and Raquel Welch, show up in the inspection team. Jimmy's a USAF Reserve Brigadier General, a founder of the Air Force Association and a big hero to all of us. Raquel Welch is . . . well, she's Raquel Welch.
We're wearing white airshow
suits, my least-favorite outfit. Lead can choose from among gray, blue, black or white. But today, we look like Good Humor ice cream men dressed in white.
Plus, I work hard during the demonstration and sweat deep soaked my collar. This would not matter much, except we do a lot of in-trail taxiing. And with only 6 ft. between the end of my pitot boom and No.5's afterburner, I take a load of black carbon engine exhaust in my cockpit. Soot clings to the dampness, leaving a noticeable "dirty ring around the collar" when I wear white.
At Del Rio, I follow my usual routine and I roll the collar under once we have taxied away from the airshow crowd.
After the show, I'll roll it back out again, the chimney-black dirt still there, but now underneath and out of sight for the picture takers.
We taxi short of the active runway for a "quick check" pretakeoff inspection by a couple of our maintenance troops. I'm flying my soon to be acidetched memory . . as No. 6 Super Sabre F-100 D . . # 553520. We take the runway, the 4 aircraft Diamond in finger-tip and Bobby Beckel and I in Element . . 500 feet back.
At precisely 1430 the Diamond releases brakes. Bobby and I run up engines, my stomach tightening against the surge of singular isolation.

And thrill that comes before every air show takeoff. By this time in the season, the Thunderbirds' Team is really 'clicking along.'
We have a lot of shows under our belt. And know what we are doing. Twenty-one minutes into the event, it's going well--a nice cadence and rhythm of a favorite song.
We approach the climax, the signature Bomb Burst. My job is to put "pigtails" through the separating formation, doing elevator-unloaded, max-rate vertical rolls.
The vertical rolls require establishing a perfect up-line. And more than a few rolls requires beginning the rolls with a ton of entry airspeed. I grab for altitude as swap for diminishing airspeed as the Diamond pirouettes into their entry for the Thunderbirds' well-known 'Bomb Burst.' And at just the right moment, dive after them, hiding behind their smoke trail.
Give Us This Day Our Daily Chuckle This week, a compendium of wit, wisdom and neat stuff you can tell at parties. Enjoy! The Class
A group of women were at a seminar on how to live in a loving relationship with your husband.
The women were asked, "How many of you love your husband?" All the women raised their hands. Then they were asked, "When was the last time you told your husband you loved him?" Some women answered today, a few yesterday, and some couldn't remember. The women were then told to take out their cell phones and text their husband: "I love you, sweetheart." The women were then told to exchange phones with another person, and to read aloud the text message
The steep dive builds airspeed quickly after clicking in the afterburner.
The Thunderbirds had switched to the F-100, making us the world's first supersonic flying team. I have to be mindful of a hard-and-fast rule: DO NOT GO SUPER-SONIC DURING THE AIRSHOW.
No booming the crowd. So, I want to be subsonic. Just barely. Let's say . .
Mach Point = 0.99.
However the biggest mistake I can make is to be early in this ultra-coordinated maneuver. The Diamond is about to break in all four directions, so if I get there too soon, I don't have an exit strategy. Today, my timing looks good, so I light the burner and start a pull into the vertical. We don't have a solo pilot's handbook on board. But if we did, the handbook would say this maneuver at this high rate of speed would be allowed a 6.5 G pull. If I get it right, I'll hit the apex of the Bomb Burst  five sec-
they received, in response.
Here are some of the replies:
1. Who the hell is this? 2. Hey, mother of my children, are you sick or what? 3. Yeh, and I love you too. What's up?? 4. What now? Did you wreck the car again? 5. I don't understand what you mean. 6. What the sh_ _ did you do now? 7. ?!? 8. Don't beat around the bush, just tell me how much you need? 9. Am I dreaming? 10. If you don't tell me who this message is actually for, someone will die. 11. I thought we agreed you wouldn't drink during the day. 12. Your mother is coming to stay with us, isn't she?? Communication
A man received the following text from his neighbor:
I am so sorry Bob. I've been riddled with guilt and I have to confess. I have been tapping your wife, day and night when you're not around. In fact, more than you. I'm not getting any at home, but that's no excuse. I can no longer live with the guilt and I hope you will accept my sincerest apology with my promise that it
onds after the Diamond separates, snap the throttle out of ‘burner,' turn on smoke, then go perfectly vertical . . moving the ailerons to full detent . . as the Diamond pilots track away from each other to the four points of the compass, I'll put on those lazy, lovely pigtails.
Any F-100 pilot who feels/hears a loud "BANG!" automatically thinks: "compressor stall."
But at Del Rio, it doesn't turn out as planned.
But now, I'm fully into one of those fast-forward mental states where seasons compress into seconds . . and allows Fall colors to change . . as you're watching.
Then I'll click off the smoke and figure out how to do a slow-speed vertical recovery to that quick upward move. I made the aggressive pull into place the Super Sabre in the vertical. And the aircraft . . EXPLODES!
F-100 pilots are accustomed to loud noises. Even in the best of circumstances, the F-100's afterburner can 'bang' pretty hard when it lights up.
It's also fairly common for the Super Sabre's engine compressor to stall, sometimes forcing a violent cough of rejected air back up the intake. A dynamic flame belches forward from its oval nose . . and definitely gets your attention. The resulting shock can kick your boots right off the rudder pedals.

The man, anguished betrayed, went into his room, grabbed his gun, without a word, shot his and killed her.

A few moments later, a second text came in: Damn autocorrect. "wifi," not "wife."

ALL THE WAY . . INTO THE DIRT!
Forget all that stuff about lift and drag and thrust and gravity, just fly the airplane until the last piece stops moving. The good old Super Sabre F100 # 55-3520 . . .has QUIT flying! But I have not.
Now flames envelop the inside of the cockpit. I have to eject or 'get fried.' I grab the seat handles and tug them up, blowing off the canopy and exposing ejection triggers on each side of the handles. I yank the seat triggers and immediately feel a no-nonsense kick in the rear out into an almost ridged slipstream. Seat separation is automatic.
Too fast to track, the ejection seat was disappearing as I curled into a semi-fetal posture to absorb the parachute's opening shock. Jump school helps here . . and I nod in agreement to my brain on good body position. Then the chute snaps open. But at a very high speed. The parachute harness jolting me back to real time . . shortcircuiting the transition from borderline terror to giddy elation . . the evil Siamese twins of leaping out of an airplane without a secondary chute. My helmet is missing. Where did it go? I look up and see a couple of chute panels are torn, several shroud lines snapped. And there's one large rip in the 28 ft. canopy. I'll come down a bit quicker than necessary. Going to land in the infield . . near show-center. Have to figure out the wind, get the chute collapsed fast so as not to be dragged. Heck! I'm on the ground and being dragged already. Get the damn chute collapsed! Pick up handfuls of shroud lines as you roll right side up and begin running on to the yet inflated canopy. Finally, I stand up, unhook and perceive I'm in one piece. And here comes a blue van with several of our wide-eyed people in it. Then it begins to sink in.
In 14 years and 1,000-plus air shows, the Thunderbirds team has been 'clever' enough to do all its metal-bending during its training sessions. This is our first accident in front of a crowd. And that dubious honor to have thousands of eyeballs watching . . is mine.
I gather my gear and climb into the van. Somebody wants to take me immediately to the
base hospital. But I say: "I don't want to do that right now. Let's go over and tell the ground crew I'm OK."
So we stop, I get out of the van, shake hands, toss the Thunderbird's crew chiefs an insincere thumbs-up. Jimmy Stewart is still there and comes over to say nice things, but Raquel hasn't stayed for the show, so no air-kiss. As I'd given our narrator, Mike Miller. That's when I learn that I'd jerked both wings off my F-100 Super Sabre.
Of course, I had been watching the Diamond, ahead and well above me. I hadn't seen the wings come off. All I knew was . . it blew up. The F-100 has a large fuselage fuel tank, on top of the wing center section and forward of the engine. When the wings folded, a large quantity of raw fuel from that fuselage tank dumped into the hot engine. Then exploded. The shock wave from the fuel blast blew off the Super Sabre's nose. And as the fuselage separately fluttered down, many in the awed crowd thought I was inside. The engine instantly shot flames through the cockpit-pressurization system. Conditioned air enters the cockpit at the pilot's feet and also behind his helmet. My flying boots, ordinarily pretty shiny for an ROTC grad, were charred beyond repair. I never wore them again. Above where I had rolled my collar underneath, my neck got toasted. I have no idea how fast I was going during ejection. I was barely subsonic when the wings failed. But with the nose blown off, the F-100 is a fairly blunt object and would have slowed quickly. On the other hand, I had remained with the aircraft no more than a second or two after it exploded. So there wasn't much time for me to decelerate. When I came out of the jet, the near sonic wind blast caught my helmet, rotated it 90 degrees and ripped it off my head. It was found on the ground with the visor down, oxygen mask still hooked up and chin strap still fastened. As the helmet rotated, its built in neck protector scuffed my burned neck causing substantial bleeding.
The Thunderbirds keep a zerodelay lanyard hooked up during airshows, giving us the quickest possible chute deployment. And that explained why my chute opened fast. Too fast, as it turned out. The parachute's immediate, highspeed opening was much harsher than normal, and as
my torso whipped around, the heavy chute straps did further damage to the back of my neck. Walking into the base hospital, I was startled by my image in a full-length mirror. Above it . . a sign says: "Check Your Military Appearance."
The white show suit is a goner, the flaming cockpit had given it a base-coat of charcoal gray accented by blood . . with a final dressing of dirt, grass and sage-brush. Being dragged along the ground accounted for this camouflage. I looked like the main scene in a slasher movie --'The Solo Pilot From Hell.' After I jumped out, the F-100 continued on a ballistic trajectory, scattering parts and equipment. The engine and the main fuselage section impacted 2 miles away. All the bits and pieces landed on government soil with no injury or property damage. My aircraft was destroyed--I signed a hand-receipt for $696,989. On the other hand, if there is a good kind of accident, this was it. Nobody was hurt, and all the scrap metal was collected for 'post-game' analysis. When my aircraft's wing center box was inspected, the box was found to have structurally failed. North American Rockwell, the manufacturer, tested the box on a bend-andstretch machine. And a section recently off Rockwell's assembly line also broke under an equivalent load of 6.5 G wing loading. It shouldn't have happened, since the F-100's positive load limit is 7.33 G. But my F-100's wingcenter box broke along a fatigue crack . . and there were about 30 additional fatigue cracks in the vicinity. Some then-recent F100 losses in Vietnam looked suspiciously similar. The recovery from a dive-bomb pass is a lot like my highspeed, high-G pull-up into the Bomb Burst. In the Vietnam accidents, the pieces had not been recovered, and the aircraft were merely written off as combat losses. Later, specialists discovered considerable fatigue damage in the wing center boxes of other Thunderbird Super Sabres. Immediately, the Air Force put a 4 G limit on the F-100 and initiated a program to run all the aircraft through depot modification to beef up the wing center box. My accident almost certainly saved lives by revealing this serious problem. Merrill A. (Tony) McPeak Note: USAF General Merrill A.McPeak flew F-100, F-104, F-

Homer Heller Ford Sells to Texas Auto Dealer
Group 1, out of Houston, Texas, has acquired the Heller Ford properties. We spoke with Don Heller, owner and family represetnative of the Heller properties who confirmed that discussion began in late summer, early fall of 2013.
“They approached us,” Heller said. “We began discussions with the family and decided that in view of a very fair offer, and our many years in the industry, that it was time. We were all ready to retire and let someone else take over the legacy. It was a family decision.” Escrow closed in January and most of the staff have stayed on, which was the intent of both the seller and the incoming buyer. Heller Ford started in January, 1941 when Don Heller was just one year old. Today, at 73, Heller is recovering from rotator cuff surgery
and in another three weeks hopes to get back to his adventurous life of hunting, fishing, and playing golf.
Don Heller was attending college when his father, Homer Heller, was killed in a plane crash. He left college to come to work at the dealership and took over management at age 29. For the past eight to 10 years his son, D. J. Heller, has been running the dealership. The sale price was not announced but rumors have it in the multimillion dollar range, likely in excess of $10 million. Don Heller chose to neither confirm or deny. “My golf clubs are in the garage,” he said. “I’m anxious for this shoulder to heal so I can put them back to work out on the links.”
We reached out to john Lockhart, General Manager of both the newly acquired Heller Properties as well as

Kiwanis Club (the morning club) and she cheerfully agreed. This past Sunday I fell in love all over again. I attended Edna Sahms’ 97th birthday party at the Center for the Arts in Escondido . . . and there she was, all decked out, looking lovely, and with dozens of admirers stopping to wish her Happy Birthday.
Man About Town
This past week I have been surrounded by beautiful women. Such are the adventures we ink-stained wretches suffer in order to find things to write about. I sat right next to Escondido’s Chamber of Commerce CEO, Rorie Johnstone, for example.
She made an excellent presentation to the Escondido Kiwanis (noon club) about who the Chamber is and what it does . . . going back to the founding of the organization right up to the present day. I was so impressed with her presentation I asked her to speak to our Hidden Valley
Hizzoner, Sam Abed, was at our table and we managed to get his photo together with the birthday girl, Edna Sahm. Hizzoner also gave the toast and it was handled beautifully.
Letters to the Editor
Hi, folks. I want to both compliment you on your great little paper and apologize to you for my not publicly standing up to the plate for you on the race issue - I'm referring to the unfounded allegations of racism made against you by a misinformed young Latino man at Kaiser about a year ago.
I am an African-American, a California native, and I'm old enough to remember when if you were "colored' or "negro" you had to go to the back of the bus, if you wanted to see a movie, you had to go to the "crows nest" - - segregated balconies in the downtown movie theaters, "back in the day" in my mother's hometown of San Antonio, Texas. I grew up in South Central LA, graduated from high school in
Blaney, Eileen Menees . . . just a gaggle of great folks who make celebrations like this come together so smoothly.
Jill Campbell was there, all decked out in a fantastic gown from Greece . . . with her long hair flowing over her shoulders (I’d never seen her with long hair before; beautiful! She should wear her hair long all the time!) It appeared Edna had a wonderful party and thoroughly enjoyed herself and the assembled ladies and gentlemen did as well.
(Just to show how much I admire and respect Edna Sahm I actually wore long pants, shoes and socks, instead of my traditional dress of tennis shorts, polo shirt and Birkenstocks.)
Another gathering where we ran into a great many pals we’ve come to know over the years was the Edna Sahm and Escondido Mayor San Marcos Chamber of Commerce Mixer, hosted Sam Abed this month by Allen We saw lots of pals we’ve Brothers Mortuary, with faciliknown for many years . . . ties in both San Marcos and Royce Moore and his wife, Vista.

He has passed on Linda Bailey, Jerry Kaufman, now but his daughter, Linda Ed Gallo, Rosa Ruiz, Bernie Allen continues to operate
Watts, CA. I vividly recall both the Watts riot in '65 and the Rodney King riot in '92, both horrible events having been far far too close for comfort. The Rodney King riot got started blocks from the neighborhood where I raised my family.
From humble beginnings, I've pulled myself up by my bootstraps; I'm a lawyer, having been in practice a little over twenty years. I was a paralegal for ten years before that, all in LA (a good place to get away from these days) so I've worked in "LA Law" for about 30 years. I have resided in Carlsbad for a little over two years. I truly love North County and environs and don't care to live anywhere else; I am an avid reader of the The Paper, whenever I see one on display I'm picking one, maybe two copies to take with.
First of all, kudos on the Chuck Berry article! When I saw the picture of Chuck on the front page, I said to myself "uh oh, they've got me real good over there at The Paper this time." The story of the night Chuck and Jerry Lee settled things "like men" had me rolling with laughter on my train to work. Did you know that, although his teacher was the late

Allen Brothers very, very well. Her son, Shane, has also joined the firm and is being groomed to take over the firm once mom decides to retire.
Saw Paul and Nome Van Middlesworth, owners of The Computer Factory, Marie Purdy, Carrie Cleaver, Jeff Frank, former columnist for the old North County Times, and now chief writer for North County Interfaith, lots and lots of San Marcos business and professional people. The event was emceed by Chamber CEO Steve Kildoo, ably assisted by Lynn Banda, his membership and marketing director.
The evening not only celebrated the Chamber activities but the 50th anniversary of Allen Brothers Vista location, and the 25th anniversay of the San Marcos location.
Allen Brothers is the oldest family owned funeral home in North San Diego County.
I don’t know about you but I was absolutely delighted when Police Escondido the Department took down that suspect in the case involving the theft of $45 from Girl Scouts, money that was destined for our military.

Hubert Sumlin of the Howlin' Wolf band out of Southside Chicago, Jimi Hendrix loved the ground Chuck Berry walked on? A recent PBS documentary in the American Masters series, on Hendrix' life "I Hear My Train A Comin'," noted that all Hendrix wanted to do musically when he was still young and barely discovered was to play like Chuck Berry, but his handlers over in England had other plans. Did you also know that Hendrix had played the Black "chitlin circuit" before going over to England? Another funny guitarist story: The legendary Iseley Brothers fired Jimi because he'd start soloing on a song with a defined short little bit of guitar licks for him to play, and he wouldn't stop! Finally, I feel my apology is in order to you at The Paper for my not stepping up in your defense with respect to the smear you got from Kaiser awhile back (wasn't it the San Marcos facility?) I'm a member of Kaiser and I go to the San Marcos facility for my primary care. I really should have written them a letter of censure, identifying myself as a Black man, as I've done here, for Kaiser's banning you - is that still going on? (Editor’s note: Yes, we’re still banned at the
San Marcos Kaiser facility which is also my primary care location.)
Having been a Black man all my life, I think I'm amply qualified to say: in the 2+ years I've been reading The Paper, there's absolutely NOTHING I've read in your paper that I've perceived as even remotely racist. You might be guilty of being "whitebread" say, with the corny jokes column, but that's a reflection of the culture your writers come from - to be Caucasian doesn't in and of itself make you a racist.
I side with the sentiments of the late Rodney King "can't we all get along?". Regardless of color or political creed, we all have to get beyond labels and stereotypes if we are to come together in the 21st Century as Americans all, embracing our diversity and not engaging in polarizing tactics like that krap that was put on you by that misinformed fellow over there at Kaiser.
Well, I'm glad I've got that off my chest. You folks keep up the good work - I particularly have enjoyed your military history stories - the feature on the San Diego tuna boat fleet commandeered to the Pacific
Theatre in WW2 taught me a

In addition to Liberace, Ciro cut Merv Griffin’s hair for 17 years (said my hair was a lot like Merv’s), Donald O’Connor, Van Patten, Roger Moore, Dudley Moore, Eddie Arnold, Jerry Vale, Jerry Van Dyke all the stars.
Come to find out Ciro cuts the hair of a lot of my pals as well, Dr. Steve Heilman, premier chiropractor, Ray Alto, owner of Jalapeno Grill and La Tapatia, Richard Jungas, owner of California Funeral Alternatives (and the guy who introduced me to Ciro,) and Tim Cunning, owner/broker of Andrew Morgan Real Estate, headquartered out of Escondido.

Kirk’s Column by Kirk Effinger
After three decades as a resident, involved citizen, and unabashed admirer of its accomplishments, along with my wife I am preparing to move from San Marcos to our neighbor to the east, Escondido. This is a move that may shock a few of my friends and acquaintances, not to mention a few others.
As I’ve explained to the few who I have told up to this point, one of our primary motivations for the move is to take advantage of a living style that is promised with the nascent Creek and University Districts in San Marcos but has yet to materialize. I’m not getting

any younger and if we are to try the more urban lifestyle promised by living in an affordable urban, downtown environment in a community with which we are reasonably familiar, Escondido is the place and now is the time.
This is a potential market that Escondido’s planners and city leaders have begun to anticipate with their recent general plan update. It is also one that sets the city apart from others and could in a fairly brief time period reinvigorate the city’s image to the broader community---not to mention its economy.
Having done a considerable amount of business in the city even before our move to North County thirty years ago, I have been a keen observer of Escondido’s politics, business environment, and civic pride. From time to time the credibility of my published observations about the city have been questioned due to my status as a San Marcos resident. I don’t expect that to change with my address. Escondido is a friendly place but newcomers are still newcomers in the eyes of many. My admiration for the accomplishments and potential of

The Last Great Mystery of World War II: What Happene d to the Amber Room?
One of the great mysteries remaining from World War II is, “Where did the Germans hide the Amber Room?” The Amber Room, a.k.a. “The Amber Chamber,” was a gift from Prussia’s King Frederick Wilhelm I to Czar Peter the Great of Russia. The gift was a “thank you” for a loan of money and an alliance between Prussia and Russia against Sweden.
Amber is a brownish-yellow translucent fossil resin found on some sea shores and used in

Wouldn’t it be nice to fill up a ship with countless works of art. Sail around the world and let others see the best of the best. The ship line would earn it's costs through charging fees to see such masterpieces. While on board, guests could dine in nice restaurants.
The ship would have clearance that no one would contest the ownership of the works. Then over a period of time, new works of art would be be put aboard the ship.

Beginning in 1701, the chamber was originally created as a gift for King Frederick’s wife, Charlotte. The room was created and periodically expanded and finally moved and installed in the Berlin City Palace in Germany. But in 1716, that venue was changed to a Russian palace near St. Petersburg after Czar Peter admired it when on a visit to Berlin.
After being redesigned and expanded, the Amber Room was 55 square meters with more than 13,000 lbs., of amber, taking some 10 years to complete.
With Germany attacking Russia in 1941, the Soviets tried to hide the Amber Room by covering it with wallpaper. After capturing Leningrad (St. Petersburg) in 1941, it took the Nazis a short time to find the chamber and a matter of hours to disassemble the chamber and haul it back to Germany. Once back in Germany, the Nazis re-assembled and put it on display in the Konigsberg Castle. The city was heavily fire bombed by the RAF as the

City Government is Not a Business by Pat Mues
Research takes up a good part of my time, and lately that’s included listening to City Council meetings online. Something I hear much too often from the Council Majority is a statement about budget or spending or deficit that includes the words “well, you wouldn’t do that in business.” And every time I hear that I think to myself, “But Government is Not a Business.” And here are some of the ways they are different: City Government sets laws; a business cannot. City Government levies taxes; a business cannot. City Government determines zoning; business cannot.
City Government can be voted out of office; private business cannot.

Russians approached in 1944. After the war, the chamber was never seen again. Its fate is not known, but there are plenty of theories and rumors. One has it being in crates at a railway station; another has it on board a ship that was sunk by a Russian submarine.
It won’t be long before the budget discussions begin and the Council is asked to provide “direction” to all the City’s departments. Some will be fully subsidized because they’re considered core functions. Others will be expected to pay for themselves. When you hear the words “Full Cost Recovery,” listen hard.

City Government can provide free services; businesses cannot (and survive.)
And here is the fundamental difference: The function of the City Government is to provide for the welfare of its residents; the function of business is to make a profit. I want to focus on this because it should be a critical part of the budget discussion. This Mayor and City Council Super Majority define core services as Fire, Police, Roads and Water/Sewer. Few would argue with those, but what about Parks, Libraries, Recreation Programs, Public Pools, Sports Fields? Are they something a City should provide? Should they be free or should you have to pay? And if you have to pay, how much should it be? And if you can’t afford to pay, should you be barred?
What is the difference between providing a service to the City’s residents and subsidizing one? The Fire Department does not pay for itself and we don’t expect it to, so no one ever says that we’re “subsidizing” the Fire Department. But when we spend City money to provide access to swimming pools and basketball courts and tennis courts built with taxpayer funds, should that be called a “subsidy” or a City service? When a developer pays lower fees than the actual cost of services the City has to provide is that a “subsidy” or a City service?

Creating a new downtown, modernizing schools and attracting development along the Sprinter line . . . just some of the goals San Marcos Mayor Jim Desmond said last week that the city is getting close to achieving. Some 250 residents and area leaders heard Mayor Desmond present his annual State of the City address at Green Gables Estate. As evidence of progress he pointed to the recently com-
He also said progress is coming on the long-awaited Creek District, a 214-acre dining and entertainment zone envisioned as the downtown that San Marcos has always lacked.

“Operation Hide and Seek.” The activity was headed up by the U.S. Marshals Service and Escondido police, and took place last Thursday and Friday, targeting 100 wanted felons.
It focused on high-risk suspects wanted on homicide, weapons and robbery charges, sex crimes, and for gang activity. One gun was seized as well as heroin and methamphetamine.
David Betancourt, 21, who was accused of stealing a jar of money from some Girl Scouts, was apprehended in the sweep as well as 22-year-old Jordan Jenkins who authorities said shot a man selling him marijuana Wednesday night in Spring Valley.

Escondido has been manifested over the years not only in things I have written, but also by the fact that when my and my daughter’s publishing business was in its early stages, we launched Escondido Magazine to celebrate the city. As many readers are probably aware, that magazine is still being published today, albeit not by us but under the aegis of the Escondido Chamber of Commerce.
While in San Marcos I served as a traffic commissioner, helped lead the effort to pass a school bond that contributed to the construction of the city’s second comprehensive high school, served (and still serve) on a variety of foundation boards and city task forces, and made many lasting friendships. I would like to think that in some small way I have helped make San Marcos the fine young city it is today. Our new adventure as citizens of Escondido begins in a few short weeks. I fervently hope our new life there brings with it the opportunity to extend the friendships I have already made there and that as time goes by I will be given the opportunity to help guide the city in a similar fashion as it moves forward on its way to

Comstock has been barred from practicing accounting until the criminal charges against him are resolved according to state officials. A preliminary hearing has been set for April 30, Deputy District Attorney Bill Mitchell said. Comstock has been charged with two felony counts of grand theft of personal property and two felony counts of embezzlement. He was released on $120,000 bail shortly after his Dec. 18 arrest, Mitchell said.
The charges against Comstock are unrelated to his work as city treasurer, a job he held from late 2010 until he resigned in early 2013. The charges are related to accounting he did for Carlsbad’s ArtSplash education nonprofit, which holds an annual two-day fundraiser for local schools each fall. Escondido Man Killed in San Bernadino

As baseball season gets underway at all levels, there is something in “Spring Training” that we can all learn.
There are 30 teams in the Big Leagues. They are gathering in Arizona and Florida these days to get ready for the season. By late October, only one team will be World Champion, but right now all 30 teams believe they have a chance to be that team. You could go to anyone of those training complexes and hear the same story. It is one of hope and optimism. Every manager, every player will tell you that they have what it takes to be
Another nice thing about sports is that every season is a new opportunity. The champions cannot carry over their past glory, and the losers do not have to bear the burden of a poor record. Every season is a clean slate. On the first day, every team has the same opportunity to be a champion. Life, though, is both cumulative and on-going. It doesn’t offer many opportunities for a restart, to put the past behind us and start over again.
That’s why God sent Jesus Christ to earth. To wipe out the past. To end its influence over us. And to put us at the beginning of a new season of life. With a level playing field, a new opportunity, a fresh start. It’s a brand new season. Opportunities abound to be a champion. In Jesus Christ, we are all champions.

Escondido • Mayor Sam Abed Free Motorist Aid in San Diego
The San Diego Association of Governments, California Department of Transportation, and California Highway Patrol are working together to provide free motorist aid on major freeways in the San Diego region through the following two programs: Call Box Program
The Call Box Program is a free service designed to help travelers who experience vehicle problems while on the highway. Call boxes are self-contained, solar-powered cellular telephones with voice communication to a call center. When motorists open the yellow call box, pick up the phone,
and press the red “call” button, they are automatically connected to call center staff. Freeway Service Patrol (FSP)
FSP is a free service that improves safety for stranded motorists and reduces traffic congestion during peak hours. A roving fleet of tow trucks and pickup trucks travel on select local freeways to provide roadside assistance to commuters. For motorist aid during FSP service hours, you may use any roadside call box, or call 511 and say “Roadside Assistance.” When the FSP is not on duty, you will be connected with a call center to reach other roadside assistance operators. More information regarding these Motorist Aid services is available at 511sd.com/aid.

San Marcos • Mayor Jim Desmond Volunteers needed to help plant 25 trees in Montiel Park
On Friday, March 7 from 10 am to 12 pm, the City of San Marcos will be partnering with San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E) for a special tree-planting event to celebrate the new improvements at Montiel Park, 2290 Montiel Road. Volunteers will plant 25 new trees in the park while learning about proper tree selection and care from ISA Certified Arborists. This is a hands-on event, so volunteers should bring work gloves and
boots. Event registration begins promptly at 9:30 am and carpooling is encouraged as there is limited parking on site.
The event also celebrates the completion of the Montiel Park Enhancement Project that was designed to reduce environmental impacts in spaces that are more vulnerable to climate changes and temperature increases because of their proximity to urbanized areas like the neighboring SR-78 and I-15 freeways.

Operating systems, CPUs and applications software exist in 32bit and 64bit versions. What’s the difference? Visualize a congested super-highway with 32 lanes and a 75MPH speed limit between San Diego and LA. To move twice as many cars between these cities we could double the speed limit or double the lanes. The 150MPH speed limit isn’t practical so we would double the lanes to 64. To increase the amount of data (bits) we can move from point A to point B in a computer we need to either make it move faster or broaden the highway. Since data is already moving at the speed of light our only alternative is to widen the data highway from 32 to 64bits.
Data moves down the highway 32bits or 64 bits abreast. Double the
Heroism in Action
December 7, 1941, claims a tragic date in United States history. It is the day Pearl attacked. was Harbor While it was a day of shock and destruction, it also evoked great heroism from members in our nation’s military.
Yeoman Durrell Conner, a 95-year old from Encinitas, California, was one of the Navy officers stationed at Pearl Harbor.
When Japanese pilots Pearl bombing began Harbor, Durrell Conner was aboard the U.S.S torpedo A California. struck the ship just 20 feet from where he stood. Amid the resulting fire, Conner un-raised an noticed American flag on the ship’s deck. He paused to raise it,
lanes and you can double the throughput. In order to fully utilize the 64bit highway you must have a 64bit CPU, a 64bit operating system (OS) and 64bit applications software. Today all new PCs have the 64bit OS and CPU but there are few 64bit applications. 32bit applications run on 64bit highways but they don’t fully utilize the throughput. Why aren’t there more 64bit applications? Software companies like Adobe, Intuit and others have been reluctant in the past to create new 64bit versions because the speed difference is not that important for most applications and because 64bit versions will not run on PCs with a 32bit OS like XP and many Vista PCs. Now that is starting to change. Software makers are beginning to release their newest applications in 64bit format because 32bit XP and Vista PCs are being retired.
tive customer information must take all prudent steps to ensure that client data does not get compromised. That means staying up with the latest firewall, virus, OS, third party add-on and applications protection. If a business database gets hacked and that business has not done “due diligence” in protecting customer data it will be liable for damages. As our business customers upgrade to Win 7 systems from Vista and XP we often take their old PCs as tradeins. Most are either “workstations” that we built or Dell and HP “workstations.” Retail Dell and HP PCs occupy the bottom rung in consumer satisfaction surveys but the business versions of Dell and HPs are a different animal altogether.
Dell and HP no longer design and manufacture PCs, but the PCs they purchase for sale through their business services groups are built more like the PCs that we build here at The Computer Factory in that they are built to “workstation” standards. These Dell and HP business “workstations” come with multi year service and warranty contracts. As a result they are more durable and built with higher quality, more reliable components. We take trade-in “workstations” (Computer Factory, Dell and HP) and refurbish them with new components where needed, increased RAM and a new OS (either Win XP Pro or Win 7 Pro) and resell them for prices ranging from $150 to $350. These are the real deal.
For users of 32bit XP and Vista this presents no problem as long as they are content with older 32bit versions of the applications that they’re using. A 32bit OS is capable of using (addressing) up to 3.25GB of RAM while a 64GB OS can use (address) 100GB or more. This too is not an issue for most 32bit OS users because 3.25GB of RAM is plenty for 32bit applications.
While home and many small business owners may have little incentive to upgrade to 64bit systems, most medium and large businesses do. A business dealing with sensi-
sparking a cheer from surrounding sailors. Seeing our national symbol served as a reminder that, though attacked, the U.S. was certainly not defeated. The flag Conner raised is displayed at the California Veterans Museum, and this week, Assemblyman Chavez and I presented him with a resolution to honor his service to our country.
His heroism at Pearl Harbor during what he calls “the longest day of his life” represents character that we all should aspire to.

Update on Prison Overcrowding
California’s prisons, with approximately 117,000 inmates, are currently at more than 144 percent of capacity. Recent federal court rulings requiring a reduction in the prison population have created massive ongoing public safety and fiscal concerns. Solutions have included transferring thousands of prisoners from state to county supervision, and the relocation of thousands more to facilities located in other states.
Last September, the Governor and legislative leaders from both parties reached agreement on how to proceed. Federal judges would be asked to extend the April deadline to reduce the state’s prison population to 137.5 percent of capacity in exchange for a promise to spend millions on rehabilitation efforts. As a result, the three judge federal panel
overseeing the state’s overcrowding case recently extended the deadline until February, 2016.
Had the courts refused, California would have been forced to spend millions of scarce dollars, including up to $70 million over the next two years, to relocate additional prisoners to other states. This ruling had been anticipated. Governor Brown’s proposed budget assumed the courts would grant the extension. Consequently, there will be no resulting windfall of unanticipated revenues.
As a member of the Public Safety Committee and the Select Committee on Justice Reinvestment, I look forward to working with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to arrive at a permanent solution to the overcrowding problem that is financially sound and, more importantly, guarantees public safety, government’s first and most important responsibility.

to visit the world with more of the same, if we all get on the same page to pray and seek His help. Now the big questions are: Does it make any difference? Does our getting together for a common cause bring results from heaven? Would it make any difference if only Christians, or only Muslims, or only Jews prayed? Would it matter if no one prayed? Or does it matter if we use different words or concluded the prayers differently? What about the Native American rain dance? Is the Almighty involved in that?

Praying For Rain
So. California is in one of the worst droughts in a century and, perhaps, since recorded history. It has become so serious that various faith groups, including Christians, Muslims, Jews, and other lesser groups, are coming together to seek Divine Providence for rain. The crisis has brought them together.
One wonders how God sees all of this. Can you imagine God looking down from heaven and seeing this unity? He has seen it before in times of war, famine, pestilence, disease, epidemics, and anytime man can’t control his own destiny. He must be tempted
Interestingly, the Bible speaks to this issue. The Jews lived in a land not unlike ours. The lack of rain was a big problem. It seems to be that God gave the people a formula for rain. It had to do with their commitment and obedience to Him. “It shall come about, if you listen obediently to my commandments which I am commanding you today, to love the Lord your God, and serve Him with all your heart and soul, that He will give you rain for your land in its season.” (Deuteronomy 11:13-14) Will the rain come, because we pray in desperation or because we love and obey God? That is the question. On the other hand, perhaps we are simply going through a weather change. If that is so, it is best if we conserve our water and find better ways to contain it when it does rain. Or, we can do both.
