Looking back at frontier times there are several incidents where white women were kidnapped by Indians and kept as members of the tribe . . probably the most well known of them was Cynthia Ann Parker - mother of Quanah Parker, chief of all the Comanche tribes.
J. Marvin Hunter wrote an extensive article about the incident in Frontier Times Magazine, dated March of 1927, some 91 years after Cynthia Ann Parker was lost to the The Paper - 760.747.7119
white civilization and became part of the Indian culture.
Hunter knew and talked with one of the veterans who was with the rangers that captured Quanah Parker.
In the fall of 1833 the Parker family moved from Cole county, Illinois, to Texas. The elder Parker was a Virginian by birth, lived for a while in Georgia, but raised his family principally in old Ledford county, Tennessee. It was from this country, in 1818, that he moved to Illinois—
then a country in the far west. But the elder Parker and his sons dreamed of the distant land on the frontier. Cynthia Ann’s grandfather, John Parker, was recruited to settle his family in north-central Texas; he was to establish a settlement fortified against Comanche raids, which had been devastating to the Euro-American colonization of Texas and northern Mexico. The Parker family, its extended kin, and surrounding families established fortified blockhouses and a central citadel—later called Fort Parker— on the headwaters of the Navasota
River in what is now Limestone County, then about 60 miles above the settlements. . And what is more strange, they came to be massacred by the Comanches whose savage braves were destined to be ruled by the blood of the very family they sought to wipe out in that terrible raid.
It was a block house, built of rough-hewn logs, for the protection of the people in case of an Indian raid. It was nested about a mile

west of the river and about two and one-half miles northwest of the present site of Groesbeck, Texas. The fort was established in 1834.
At the time the Indians made their deadly raid —May 19, 1836.—the following were in the fort: The Parkers, Plummers, Nixons, Kelloggs, Frodts, Dwights, and the Faulkenburgs, Mrs. Duty, Silas Bates, a Mr. Lunn and Abram Anglin—representing 22 adults and some 15 or more children. They were all in the fort on the night of the 18th - the night before the raid. Local legend and history unite in saying that at least 500 Comanche Indians attacked the fort and killed practically every person there, a few managing to make their escape. The death list consisted of Elder John Parker, Silas Parker, Ben Parker, Sam Parker and Robert Frodt. The people who were dangerously wounded were Mrs. John Parker, Granny Parker and a Mrs. Duty. After burning the fort the Indians carried the following away as captives: Mrs. Rachel Plummer, daughter of James Parker, and her little son, James Plummer, 2 years old; Mrs. Elizabeth Kellogg, Cynthia Ann Parker, 9 years old, and her little brother, John Parker, children of Silas Parker.
It was 9 o'clock on the morning of May 19, 1836—the tragic day that

I urgently needed a few days off work, but I knew the boss would not allow me to take leave. I thought that maybe if I acted "Crazy" then he would tell me to take a few days off. So, I hung upside-down on the ceiling and made funny noises. My co-worker (who's blonde) asked me what I was doing.
I told her that I was pretending to be a light bulb, So, that the Boss might think I was "Crazy" and give me a few days off. A few minutes later the Boss came into the office and asked, "What in the name of good GOD are you doing?" I told him I was a light bulb.

James W. Parker, Nixon, the Faulkenburgs, Bates and Anglin, were off to the fields some distance in the Navasota bottoms. Suddenly, as if rising from the very dust, a force of anywhere from 100 to 600 Indian warriors, composed of Comanches accompanied by Kiowa and Kichai allies. They came within three hundred yards and, having halted, raised a white flag. Benjamin Parker went out to treat with them. He came back and said he believed the Indians intended to fight, but that he would treat with them again. He went —but he never returned. John Parker, the patriarch of the family, had experience negotiating with various Indian nations going back to the 18th century, when he was a noted ranger, scout, Indian fighter, and soldier for the United States. Historians conjecture that when he negotiated treaties with the local non-Comanche Indians, he believed those treaties would bind all Native Americans. If so, this was a tragic mistake. John Parker and his men, who lacked sufficient knowledge of the Comanches' military prowess, were caught in the open and unprepared for the ferocity and speed of the Indian warriors. They managed to fight a rearguard action to protect

some of the escaping women and children, but soon all of the settlers retreated into the fort.
Pandemonium set in. Amidst savage war-whoops and blood-curdling screeches, the whole band charged the fort, now defended by only two men. Execution was speedy and horrible. It was the common story of an Indian massacre. Parker and five other captives were led away into Comanche territory. The Texans quickly mounted a rescue force. During the Texans' pursuit of the Indians, one of the captives, a young teenage girl, escaped. All of the other captives were released over a period of years as ransom was paid, but Parker remained with the Indians for nearly twenty-five years. Looking at the fortunes of those few who lived even to be carried into captivity, there was a mother who was compelled to lift her nine-yearold, daughter Cynthia Ann, and her brother, John, up behind a warrior. The Indian turned his pony's head to the faraway Comanche land. As he faded from view, Cynthia Ann was torn from her mother's arms, only some day to give birth to a son, Quanah, who would rule the very warriors that stole his mother in the years of the long ago. Mrs. Kellogg was taken captive and fell into the hands of the Keechies. Six months thereafter some Delawares bought her from these Indians for $150. They carried her to Nacogdoches, where General

I have come to realize that money investors have a remarkable facility for predicting the past. Fairy tales are harmful to children because they are not factually true to life. For example, in “The Princess and the Frog,” the frog says, ‘A wicked witch enchanted me. Kiss me and I will turn back into a prince.’ So the girl picks up the frog and she kisses him. And then nothing happens. And you know why?

Sam Houston paid them a ransom of $150—all they paid and all they asked. One of the most revolting crimes at the fall of the fort was the murder of Elder Parker. Having surrounded him with his own family, they stripped, tomahawked and scalped him before their eyes.
On the way to Nacogdoches one of Mrs. Kellogg's rescuers slightly disabled a skulking Indian. She instantly recognized him as the slayer of the Elder Parker. Without judge, charge or jury, the Indian warrior was quickly executed.

These traders found her in the wilds of the Rocky mountains so far north of Santa Fe that it took 17 days to reach that frontier town. After a year and six months of awful captivity she was given a royal reception. In a short while Mr. Donoho and his wife carried her to her brother-inlaw, a Mr. Nixon of Independence. Missouri. In 1858 Mr. Nixon took Mrs. Plummer to her father's house. Twenty-one months of captivity had worn away. There is a remarkable thing about Mrs. Plummer's history.

She was born on the 19th, married on the 19th, captured on the 19th, ransomed on the 19th, reached Independence on the 19th, and died on the 19th of the month. Her baby, lost on the fall of Fort Parker, was ransomed and carried to Fort Gibson late in the year of 1842. His grandfather reached home with him in February, 1843. He grew to be one of the most respected citizens of Anderson county. Texas. This leaves Cynthia Ann and and John Parker, who were held in captivity by different tribes—the girl by the Comanches, and the boy probably by the Kiowas.
John Parker reached manhood and became a noted warrior. His tribe planned a campaign beyond the Rio Grande. On the raid John captured a beautiful, dark-eyed senorita and made her his wife. While yet a captive she fell madly in love with him. John became desperately ill with the smallpox. The whole tribe fled, leaving him to die alone—but they took his senorita. The Spanish girl was haunted by visions of her suffering warrior-lover. Not counting danger nor distance she escaped and fled to his side.

Message from The Foundation for Senior Wellbeing - Now more than ever, the important work of supporting isolated seniors matters. We've been serving seniors in North County since the 1970s and since opening the Information Resource Center (IRC) in 2016, our organization has directly supported more than 1,000 individual seniors, families and caregivers. Our outreach through the IRC now looks a little different. Here's what we're doing to grow our circle of support: Proactively
quest over the heart of an American pioneer schooled in all the savage discipline of the Comanches and the Kiowas—the wild Arabs of the New World.
Cynthia Ann Parker was soon integrated into the tribe. She was adopted by a Tenowish Comanche couple, who raised her as their own daughter. She forgot her original ways and became Comanche in every sense. She married Peta Nocona, a chieftain. They enjoyed a happy marriage, and as a tribute to his great affection to her, he never took another wife, although it was traditional for chieftains to have several wives. They had three children: famed Comanche chief Quanah, another son named Pecos (Pecan), and a daughter named Topʉsana (Prairie Flower).
Cynthia Ann was 34 years old when seen again. Long, long before her recovery, she had been given up as dead. It was a purely accidental discovery of Cynthia Ann, by which she was once more restored to a civilization from which she had long since been weaned.
It was now 1858, Major Earle Van Dorn, with some United States dragoons, was preparing to leave Fort Belknap. The famous Van Dorn campaign against all the hostile tribes was now opening. Sul Ross, afterward a household word in Texas, was only 18 years of age and on his college vacation, he took command of 135 friendly

Humane Society Announces Virtual Walk for Animals - Participants are invited to tune in to social media on May 2nd for the virtual event. The San Diego Humane Society has announced that its 26th annual Walk for Animals - San Diego will be a virtual event this year. On May 2nd, the organization will feature virtual versions of Walk for Animals traditions, including live pancake demonstrations, a blessing of the animals, adoptable animals and more. The decision to shift the event, one of SDHS’s biggest fundraisers of the year, to an online experience was made in response to California’s ‘Stay at Home’ order to prevent the spread of the coron-
Indians—Wacoes, Tehuacanoes, Toncahuas and Caddoes. Van Dorn readily accepted their services when tendered, and they entered on the celebrated campaign. Ross, and his command took the lead. Van Dorn with his dragoons and supply train brought up the rear. When Ross reached the Wichita mountains he sent a trusty Waco and a Tehuacano to scout the Wichita village, 75 miles east of the Wichita river. He hoped to find the camp of the savage Comanches whose raid had worked such awful havoc on old Fort Parker. The scouts were amazed to find that Buffalo Hump and his band of Comanches were in the village trading and gambling with the Wichitas. Buffalo Hump was the one chief among all the hostile tribes against whom Van Dorn's expedition was directed. Ross had a hard time to make Van Dorn trust the word of his scouts. At last he persuaded Van Dorn to make a forced march with his dragoons against the village.
The sun was just rising on the first day of October. Van Dorn, with his dragoons, and Sul Ross, with his 135 Indians, struck the Wichita village like thunderbolts out of a clear sky. Buffalo Hump and his powerful band were almost wiped off the face of the earth in the first assault. Van Dorn's command fought like demons, for they saw afresh the scenes of old Fort Parker. Many prisoners were taken, among them being "Lizzie." She was a white girl for whom not a solitary relative was ever found, nor a single soul who

The walk typically attracts more than 5,000 attendees. “This is the first time in 26 years that participants won’t be walking together,” said SDHS president and CEO Dr. Gary Weitzman. “It was a difficult decision, but we remain committed to creating a more humane San Diego for animals in need. Compassion is more important than ever. Although we’re separated by distance, we hope this virtual event will inspire our community to make a lifesaving difference for animals in need.” Registration for the virtual event is free. Participants will receive custom Walk for Animals resources designed to help them fundraise to support San Diego Humane Society’s work. On May 2, participants are invited to tune in on social media for the virtual event, and then show their support by walking in their own way: around the block, the backyard or even the living room. Additional information about the Walk for Animals – San Diego, including how to register, can be found at sdwalkforanimals.org. To notify your family, friends, and neighbors, a suggested tweet: @sdhumane’s annual Walk for Animals is a virtual event for the first time in 26 years! Due to social distancing guidelines during the #COVID19 pandemic, we hope you will support the animals from a distance. Learn more at sdwalkforanimals.org.

could give the faintest recognition. Sul Ross adopted, reared and educated her with all the tenderness of a father. She reached a graceful womanhood, married and died in southern California. In the fall of 1860, a powerful band of Comanches made a terrible raid through Parker and adjacent counties. Under the leadership of Chief Nocona they spread ruin and disaster along their war trail.
In December 1860, after years of searching at the behest of Parker's father and various scouts, Texas Rangers led by Lawrence Sullivan Ross discovered a band of Comanche, deep in the heart of Comancheria, near the present-day town of Margaret, Texas in Foard County. The town is located between Crowell and Vernon within sight of the Medicine Mounds just outside present-day Quanah, Texas. It was rumored that the Comanches held American captives. In a surprise raid, the small band of Rangers attacked the group of Comanches in the Battle of Pease River.
After limited fighting, the Comanche attempted to flee. Ranger Ross and several of his men pursued the man who had appeared as the leader, and who was fleeing alongside a woman rider. As Ross and his men neared, she held a child

One of the more frightening aspects of corona-virus hit me as I watched network tv coverage of what's happening in Italy.

Then, they are quickly shuffled off to the morgue, placed in caskets, then in trucks, then to a cemetery for burial ASAP.

On Novmeber 3rd of this year Oceanside voters will decide the fate of North River Farms, a 585home, agriculture-themed, mixeduse development proposed for the city’s rural Morro Hills region.
The City Council decided Wednesday to place the measure on the ballot after a hard-fought effort by residents to collect enough signatures for a referendum on the controversial project.
City Councilmember Esther Sanchez said, the ballot measure should be written clearly so people will know whether they are voting for or against construction of the project.

Residents of Rodriguez’s council district, where the project would be built, have been critical of his support for it. He and Sanchez are both targets of recall efforts that also could be on the November ballot.
Councilman Jack Feller said Oceanside needs the housing and the property tax revenue that the project would bring. One of the most frequently heard objections to the development is that the only access would be from North River Road, which is already often congested. Proponents of the project say it would bring muchneeded improvements to nearby roads and infrastructure. Because of precautions against the spread of the coronavirus pandemic, the council members sat in an almost empty chamber Wednesday. The meeting was broadcast on the city’s community television station, KOCT.
The council approved North River Farms last November on a 3-2 vote, with Sanchez and Ryan Keim opposed. Residents almost immediately began circulating a petition for a referendum to overturn the decision, and in December they submitted more than 12,600 signatures to the city clerk, successfuly qualifying the measure to be decided by the voters rather than the city council. we’re trying to keep those businesses open by ordering take-out.

over her head. The men did not shoot, but instead surrounded and stopped her.
Sul Ross, now a captain of the Texas Rangers, 20 dragoons from the regular army, and 70 citizens out of Palo Pinto county, had taken the Indians by complete surprise at their camp near Cedar mountains, on the headwaters of Pease river. They were packing their horses preparatory to the desertion of camp when Sul Ross and his command swept down upon them like a whirlwind. In less than half an hour he had killed or captured everything in sight except Nocona, who, with an Indian behind him, broke for the mountains six miles away. On a swift pony, the chief's squaw, with her baby in her arms, rode beside him. Ross and Killiher pursued them like devils. Ross soon came within range and killed the Indian riding behind Nocona. It proved to be a woman, hidden under a great buffalo robe. In her fall she unhorsed the chief by a death grip. A deadly combat was drawn between Sul Ross and the Comanche chieftain. At last a shot from his revolver broke the Indian's right arm and he could no longer pull the bowstring. The ranger then shot him through the body. Walking deliberately to a tree, he leaned against it and began to sing the death-chant—the only privilege an Indian ever begs of his foe. Rangers
Info for Workers and Businesses
The COVID-19 outbreak is drastically affecting the lives of millions. My offices have received calls from workers, employers, healthcare professionals and many more seeking information and guidance during this tumultuous time. As a result, I asked my leadership team to compile a list of resources available to workers, employers and others to help get us through this unexpected public health and financial crisis.
Resources include the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA). SBA’s Economic Injury Disaster Loan Assistance Program will provide assistance to small businesses, non-profits, homeowners and renters facing economic hardship resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic – here’s the link: https://disasterloan.sba.gov/ela/ . California’s Economic Development Department (EDD) has a number of programs including Unemployment and Disability Insurance for laid off workers or those facing reduced hours. EDD also provides assistance to businesses helping them stay afloat, retain their trained workforce, and avoid layoffs or closures. For more information, or to file a claim, visit:
having arrived, Nocona was commanded to surrender. He answered by a vicious thrust with his lance. A rifle ball brought the death song to an abrupt close. (Some accounts say a cook, Martinez, recognized the Indian as Nocona, and shot him.). Nocona's lance, war bonnet and shield were hung among the trophies in the old state capitol. The Rangers began questioning the woman fleeing with Nocona and other surviving Comanche. In broken English, she identified herself and her family name. Her information matched what Ross knew of the 1836 Fort Parker Massacre.
afterward one died on the great plains of Texas. The other son lived to become the great Comanche chief—Quanah Parker. He was born near Wichita Falls, in 1854. He ruled his people on their reservation in the old Indian Territory, now the State of Oklahoma. He spoke the English tongue, was quite advanced in civilization and owned a wellstocked ranch. Mr. Henry C. Fuller writes:
Ross sent her and her child to Camp Cooper and then notified her uncle, Colonel Isaac Parker. When Colonel Parker mentioned that his niece's name was Cynthia, she slapped her chest and said, "Me Cincee Ann." He took her to his home near Birdville.
The squaw and the child captured by Lieutenant Killiher proved to be Nocona's. The trained frontiersmen at once discovered that she was a white woman bronzed from the winds and the suns of the plains, that her eyes were blue and that she was weeping. They told her not to cry, that they would not harm her. For 25 years an unbroken search had been made for the missing girl of old Fort Parker. Somehow, it dawned upon them that they had found Cynthia Ann Parker in the fallen chieftain's wife. But she said she was crying not for her self, but for her two boys, as she thought, slain in the battle. She was carried to the settlements and readily identified as the long-lost Cynthia Ann Parker.

Since there has also been a lot of confusion over which businesses are “essential” and can remain open, along with public health concerns about preventing the spread of the disease in workplaces, guidance is also provided for specific industries. These include adult and senior care facilities, food and beverage services and health care facilities, to name a few.
You can find more information about these programs and more on my website. The list we’ve developed will be updated as additional information becomes available.

Parker stated that he was her personal servant, a Mexican slave named José Nakoni. Quanah Parker refused to correct the story of his father's death. According to his daughter, Nelda Parker Birdsong, Quanah is reported to have said, "out of respect to the family of General Ross, do not deny that he killed Peta Nakona. If it is any credit to him to have killed my father, let his people continue to believe that he did so."
Parker's return to her birth family captured the country's imagination. In 1861, the Texas legislature granted her a league (about 4,400 acres) of land and an annual pension of $100 for the next five years, and made her cousins, Isaac Duke Parker and Benjamin F. Parker, her legal guardians.

These are interesting times that we are living through. While the situation remains fluid, I wanted to update you on the latest regarding the Coronavirus and what we are doing in San Diego County. Per Gov. Gavin Newsom’s orders, the entire State of California is under a shelter in place order. All Californians are being asked to stay at home if you do not need to go out for essential reasons. These reasons can include buying food, picking up medications and exercising as long as people do so by practicing a social distance and keeping six feet apart from others.
The Coronavirus is an invisible enemy. This virus doesn’t affect people based on their economic status, this virus isn’t partisan, and it doesn’t discriminate based on the color of your skin. We are all in this fight together and we all must come together in order to defeat this enemy. The residents of San Diego County are resilient. We have shown our spirit during wildfires, during terrorist attacks, and during other times of need. We will get through this, but it takes a collective effort. There is a very simple way to defeat this virus. Maintain a social distance, this will stop the spread and get us back on the road to recovery
To those business leaders struggling during this time, we are here for you. Last week, I have partnered with Supervisor Gaspar to help our local business community that has been devastated by the Coronavirus. We are looking to waive fees for those restaurants wanting to now serve carry out and we are asking County staff to look at ways to reduce costs in other areas. If you have other ideas or ways we can help, please don’t hesitate to let our offices know.
For our part, we will continue to communicate and provide as much information we can. We will ensure the County is doing its part to make the best decisions and do the right things for residents. Each of us has a role that will determine the level of success in fighting this virus. And I want to thank all those who continue to stay at home, who continue to maintain social distance and do their part during this pandemic. San Diegans are strong and resilient people and together we can get through this!

DAR Chapter Honored Guest Speaker at Recent Meeting - The Santa Margarita Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution, was honored to have past DAR National Corresponding Secretary General, honorary CA state regent and member of the Letitia Coxe Shelby DAR Chapter, as their guest speaker at a recent meeting. Her subject was “Everyone Has A Story”, a program on how to capture your life’s memories for the generations that follow. After a twenty-five year career at San Diego Gas & Electric company, Mrs Jarrard resigned as manager of a major department to join her husband, Ted, in retirement. During retirement she pursued her interest in genealogy and became active in a number of genealogical societies. Committed to literacy, she read weekly at Walt Whitman Elementary School in San Diego, and now reads to her grandchildren. She developed a passion for life story writing and began taking classes in pursuit of that passion. She began talking about it among friends at genealogical meetings where she was encouraged to develop a program to share with members.

Like everyone, we can’t wait till this pandemic is over . . . but we are realistic and totally agree with and practice the safeguards recommended: Wash hands frequently. Maintain at least 6’ separateion from others. Avoid touching face, eyes, nose, mouth with unwashed hands. Avoid close contact with sick people. Stay away from public places if you become sick. Eliminate or minimize visitors.
Also, eat healthy. We’ll get through this! break is the most complex and rapidly evolving healthcare crisis we have ever seen. It is proving to be a major strain on the resources of Palomar Health and every other healthcare provider we know. So far, our community has been spared the worst of this pandemic, thanks in part to all of your efforts at social distancing. Our medical staff has acted urgently and carefully in treating the confirmed cases we have seen in our community. However, we must continue to be vigilant and do all we can to prepare should the pandemic worsen. We are rapidly working to increase our capacity to accommodate a potential surge of patients. This ramp-up comes at a staggering cost, though. Palomar Health is facing millions of dollars in unplanned and unbudgeted expenses as we purchase critical supplies of masks, isolation gowns, testing supplies and personal protective equipment. We are experiencing new labor and facilities expenses as we rush to construct screening areas, respiratory isolation tents and additional negative-pressure hospital rooms for COVID-19 patients. Because we have cancelled all elective surgeries, we are also dealing with a major loss of revenue. We are unable to predict how long we will have to operate in this emergency mode. Many of you have asked how you can help. Today, we are asking you to make a gift to our COVID-19 emergency fund. Your donation will help Palomar Health address our most immediate needs related to this crisis. That includes funding for the equipment and medical personnel needed to identify, isolate and treat coronavirus patients and prevent the virus from spreading. Since the start of this emergency, we have seen our employees and the community bravely step up to confront the challenge of

every chance to escape. A close watch had to be kept upon her for days and days. Slowly the recollection of childhood scenes stole upon her savage sense. Parker never adjusted to her new surroundings, and although white and physically integrated into the community, she was uncomfortable with the attention she received. Her brother, Silas Jr., was appointed her guardian in 1862, and took her to his home in Van Zandt County. When he entered the Confederate Army, she went to live live with her sister, Orlena Parker O'Quinn. According to some, the cause of her unhappiness was that she missed her sons and worried about them. In 1864, Parker's daughter, Topʉsana, caught influenza and died of pneumonia. Losing the only child she had had contact with since her return to her birth relatives caused her to be stricken with grief. She began refusing food and water and resisted encouragement to save herself. She died in March 1871 at the O'Quinn home and was buried in Foster Cemetery on County Road 478 in Anderson County near Poynor. Afterwards the United States government made an appropriation to have her remains moved to Oklahoma and buried beside her son's body—Chief Quanah Parker.
Mr. Meredith of Wills Point, Texas; a fellow citizen in those distant days, related this story: "Subsequent to Cynthia Ann's capture by Sul Ross's brigade, she lived in the lower part of Van Zandt county, Texas, in 1861-62, with her brother who moved from there to Anderson county where she died.”
Quanah Parker is one of the first leaders of the Native American Church. He taught that the sacred peyote medicine was the sacrament given to the Indian peoples and was to be used with water when taking communion. Peyote was used in pre-Columbian times to commune with the spirit world and also as a medicine. Peyotists believe in a Supreme God and call for Native American brotherly love, family care, self-support through work, avoidance of alcohol and recreational drug use.
Quanah Parker, Chief of the Comanche Nation and sonn of Cynthia Ann Parker
"Quanah Parker died at his home three miles northwest of Cache,
Okla., in the spring of 1911. A daughter, Esther, and two sons also sleep by his side. The eldest daughter of Quanah Parker, Neda Parker Birdsong, bought the old home place and is now living there. The house is a large 1-room frame building, built about 30 years ago, by S. B. Burnett of Fort Worth, who had a large tract of grazing land in that immediate section leased at that time, and who was for many years a close personal friend of Quanah Parker. Cynthia Ann Parker died an alien among her own. She forever longed for the wild freedom of the Estacadoes. She dreamed of an Indian lover brave enough to sing his death song. She and her little "Prairie Flower" —her little daughter — sleep side by side. Cynthia Ann’s Comanche name was Naduah (Comanche: Narua) Her Comanche name means "someone found".

The Ship’s Cook An Unlikely Hero
Doris "Dorie" Miller, born Oct. 12, 1919, died most likely on Nov. 24, 1943. He was a U.S. Navy cook aboard the USS West Virginia, who, untrained for the position, manned anti-aircraft guns during the attack on Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941, and during World War II was one of the first American serviceman to be decorated for valor.
coronavirus. Earlier this week, the Foundation’s Board of Directors authorized a special contribution of $500,000 from the Foundation to Palomar Health to help manage the crisis. Our Foundation board members have also committed to personally pledge their own financial support and challenge others to do the same. Our hearts are warmed to tell you that right now, hundreds of volunteers are at work sewing thousands of surgical masks to help protect the health of members of our community. This is in addition to gifts of medical supplies and food that we are we receiving daily from the community.
We are humbled by this outpouring of generosity and invite you to join in the effort. Right now, we need your financial support. Gifts in any amount will be gratefully received. You can contribute through our online COVID-19 Appeal or by calling the Foundation at (760) 739-2787. Your support will immediately help Palomar Health perform at its highest level and remain ready to serve the community at this critical time. Thank you for considering how you can help. Please know that the staff of Palomar Health and Palomar Health Foundation are here for you, even more so at times like this. We pledge to keep you updated with the latest information throughout this ordeal. As always, you are welcome to share your thoughts or concerns with us by emailing email@example.com.

His combat recognition made him one of the first heroes of World War II. He was commended by Secretary of the Navy Frank Knox, and personally recognized by Fleet Admiral Chester W. Nimitz aboard the aircraft carrier USS Enterprise. Nimitz presented Miller with the Navy Cross, at that time, the third-highest award for gallantry during combat. Today the Navy Cross is the second-highest honor for the Navy and Marines.
After training in Hawaii, Miller was assigned to the USS Liscome Bay, which took part in the Battle of Makin Island. On Nov. 24, 1942, his ship was sunk with only 272 survivors. The ship was struck in the stern by a torpedo from the Japanese submarine I-175. The aircraft bomb magazine detonated a few moments later, causing the ship to sink in 23 minutes.
She found it difficult to understand her iconic status to the nation, which saw her as having been redeemed from the Comanches. Heartbroken over the loss of her daughter, she stopped eating and died in 1871.

Two weeks later, the Navy released a list of commendations. Among them was a single notation for an “unnamed Negro.” The NAACP asked President Franklin D. Roosevelt to determine the name of the sailor and award him the Distinguished Service Cross, at that time the second-highest combat honor. The Navy Board of Awards in Washington D. C., revealed the name of the “unknown Negro” sailor was that of 2nd Class Petty Officer "Doris Miller." The Pittsburgh Courier initiated a write-in campaign to send Miller to the Naval Academy.
Miller was promoted to Mess Attendant 1st Class on June 1, 1942. The Pittsburgh Courier continued to push to return Miller to the U.S. for a war bond tour, but he already was back in the country doing just that.
She had married the Comanche chieftain, Peta Nocona, and had three children with him, including the last free Comanche chief, Quanah Parker.
Records indicate that Cynthia Ann Parker was born on or about October 28, 1827 and died in March, 1871. Her final resting place Fort Sill Post Cemetery.
Harbor bottom as her crew, including Miller, abandoned ship.
What adds interest to the actions of Miller, who was a 2nd-class petty officer cook, is he was the first AfricanAmerican to be so honored. As a result, his heroism rallied the wary Black communities across America to give more support to the War effort
Miller did his training at Naval Station Norfolk in Virginia, then was promoted to 3rd Class petty officer cook, one of the few ratings open at the time to black sailors. On Jan. 2, 1940, he was transferred to the battleship USS West Virginia.
When the attack on Pearl Harbor began, Miller immediately reported to his battle station, only to discover a torpedo had destroyed it. The young petty officer ran into an officer, who told him to go to the bridge and aid the ship's Captain, Mervyn Bennion, who had been gravely wounded by shrapnel.
Miller was then ordered to load and fire two Browning .50 caliber anti-aircraft machine guns in the aft part of the battleship. He wasn't familiar with the machine gun, but two accompanying officers told him what to do.
Miller fired the gun until he ran out of ammunition, then he was ordered to help carry the Captain up to the navigation bridge out of the thick oily smoke generated by the many fires on and around the ship.
When the attack finally subsided, Miller was ordered to help move injured sailors through oil and water, thereby "unquestionably saving the lives of a number of sailors who might otherwise have been lost.” The West Virginia sank to the Pearl
Of the 272 survivors from the Liscome Bay crew of more than 900, Miller was among the two-thirds of the crew listed as "presumed dead.” His parents were informed he was missing in action on Dec. 7, 1943, ironically two years after his heroic actions at Pearl Harbor.
A memorial service was held on April 30, 1944, at the Second Baptist Church in Waco, Texas, sponsored by the Victory Club. On May 28, a granite marker was dedicated at Moore High School in Waco to honor him. Miller was officially declared dead by the Navy on Nov. 25, 1944, a year and a day after the loss of the USS Liscome Bay.
For years, Dorie Miller had slipped into historical obscurity, however actor Cuba Gooding played Miller in a few brief scenes in the recent film, “Pearl Harbor,” which returned the sailor’s heroism to merely a brief note, but on Jan. 19, of this year, the Navy announced the nation’s newest aircraft carrier, CVN-81, would be christened the USS Dorie Miller. The carrier, with its keel to be laid down in 2023, is a Gerald R. Ford-class carrier scheduled for launching in 2028.

There are millions of people who have seen grown men riding around in little miniature cars. Likewise, there are millions of people who have seen maroon hats on men, and thinking they were from the Middle East. They might have even seen Sydney Greenstreet wearing such a hat in the movie Casablanca.
Well, the little cars (called tin lizzies) and the hats (called fezes) are part of an organization called the Shriners, which is part of the overall Masonic organization. The Shriners is usually referred to as the “fun” part of the Masons. The Shriners got its start in 1870, when a group of Masons were having lunch at the Knickerbocker Cottage in Manhattan. There, they discussed starting a unit, or part, of the Masons which would stress fun and fellowship. Two of those at the lunch, Dr. Walter Fleming and William Florence ran with the idea.
Florence was a well-known actor, and while on tour in France, attended a party given by an Arabian diplomat. The entertainment at the party included the guests becoming members of a secret society. Florence took notes, and shared them with Fleming when he returned to New York. Fleming then took the ideas and converted them into what later would become the “Ancient Arabic Order of the Nobles of the Mystic Shrine
(A.A.O.N.M.S.)” . If a person rearranges the first letter of each of those words, you have the word MASON. Fleming also created the ritual, emblem, and costumes. Florence and Fleming were initiated as the first Shriners on August 13, 1870, and eleven others were initiated ten months later.
A Middle Eastern theme was adopted, and Temples were soon established. Temples were replaced by Shrine Centers or Shrine Auditoriums. By 1878, there were 425 Shriners in 13 temples in eight states, and ten years later there were 7210 members in 48 temples. By 1938 there were 340,000 members in the United States. By the mid-1900s the Shriners were generally thought of as the leading secret lodge in prestige and wealth in the United States. The Shriners Hospitals for Children is the Shriners’ charitable arm. There are 22 hospitals in the United States, Canada, and Mexico. The original goal of the hospitals was to treat orthopedic injuries, diseases, and birth defects in children. However, they now deal with orthopedic care, burn treatment, cleft lip and palate care, and spinal cord injury rehabilitation. For many years the Shriners have been noted for sponsoring the EastWest All-Star football game. That game has raised a great deal of attention to the Shriners.
Likewise, many notable Americans have been Shriners. Among the lengthy list of high-profile men who have been Shriners are John Wayne, Arnold Palmer, Brad Paisley, Gerald Ford, “Buzz” Aldrin, and Gene Autry. In particular, John Wayne’s Shriners items have been very popular among collectors. For example, five of John Wayne’s Shriners identification cards from the 1970s sold for $2151 in a Heritage Auction in 2011.
Also, three of Wayne’s fezes from the 1960s and 1970s went for over $4000. All of the fezes were maroon felt with tassels. One fez also said “Ambassador-at-Large” on the front, a designation that meant that his Shriners responsibilities included meeting and talking with prospective members.
However, it was John Wayne’s 14K Shriners ring from the 1960s that sold for over $13,000 at a Heritage Auction. Most likely he wore it as a pinkie ring.
Finally, a vintage piece of Shrine memorabilia went for nearly $4000 at auction. It was a 1934 formal invitation signed by the likes of Hollywood celebrities Clark Gable, Carole Lombard, Frank Morgan, Will Rogers, Bing Crosby, Stan Laurel, Oliver Hardy, Gary Cooper, and many others, requesting that the 1935 Shrine Imperial Council Session be held in Los Angeles. It makes you think that the Shriners

Most, if not all of us, have heard about the virus and have seen its results: closed schools and restaurants, cancelled athletic games, church services, funeral and wedding services, limited social gatherings, restricted visitations to hospitals, retirement homes, and care facilities, and a shortage of groceries and toilet paper.
Even more interesting is what is being said about the cause of the virus. Some say the Chinese were experimenting with the virus and it got out of control and escaped. Others claim that some U. S. scientists working in China were responsible .One of the more interesting stories is that a snake bit a bat, the bat was used for soup, then eaten, which somehow provided the right incubation for the virus to develop. In the world of religion, it has been said that Satan is responsible, or
I personally don’t know much about any of these accounts or stories as to the true cause, or even if viruses just happen because of a combination of all the right elements. What we do know is where it started, how devastating it is, and how it has affected each and all of us.
So how do we deal with it? Perhaps it is an opportunity to seize the moment and make good out of the bad, hope out of despair, trust out of doubt, humility out of arrogance, sharing out of hoarding, and love out of hate. As God’s creatures, we are bigger than the virus and, with His wisdom, will overcome it. For encouragement, hope, comfort, and spiritual perspective, call Diala-Prayer 760 746 6611.

A Weekly Message from the Mayor of Your Community published in the belief that it is important for elected leaders to communicate with their constituents and that constituents have a means of hearing from their elected leaders.
San Marcos • Mayor Rebecca Jones Become a H-E-R-O!
Mayor Jones is calling on every single person to become a HERO today by taking four critical steps represented by the acronym H-E-R-O.
1. Help prevent the spread of COVID-19 by following all government orders and guidelines. Everyone in California is required to stay home except to get food, care for a relative or friend, get necessary health care, or go to an essential job.
2. Educate yourself with facts, not rumors. It’s more important than ever to share factual information and not inadvertently spread misinformation. Share official updates from your City, County, State and the CDC. 3. Remain calm. Practice kindness and compassion at home and in the community – even when that means practicing social distancing of at least six feet to keep each other safe. 4. Opt in for emergency alerts. Sign up for E-news Alerts at www.sanmarcos.net/alerts. Register for the County’s COVID-19 Text Message Alert System by texting COSD COVID19 to 468-311.
Vista • Mayor Judy Ritter
Importa nce of Stay at Home Order
It’s been almost two weeks since California Governor Newsome issued a Stay at Home order. This means all of us must remain at home, except to go out for essential needs. The order is in place to slow the spread of the coronavirus.
Essential businesses remain open, including grocery stores, pharmacies and banks, gas stations, restaurant pick-up, and others. While it’s a difficult time, I applaud those who are taking heed of the order. The most important way residents can help stop the spread is to obey public health restrictions and orders and take specific actions to reduce the spread of the virus. While our City offices are closed to public access, we remain open so that we can continue to provide services to the community. Our essential personnel, law enforcement, fire and medical services, public works, and our senior nutrition have not been interrupted. Get the facts from the federal, state and local official health experts. Links to these sites are on our City website at CityofVista.com. Stay informed and stay healthy. Oceanside - Mayor Peter Weiss
Escondido • Mayor Paul “Mac” Mcnamara
The City of Oceanside proclaimed a Local Emergency which enables the City to take additional legal, operational, and recovery measures to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic that is affecting communities in San Diego County and across the nation.
The Covid 19 virus and related issues will probably be dominating this column for the next few weeks. This week I want to remind everyone that there are two classes of people who will be impacted. The first group are those who contract the disease. The second group are those who are economically impacted. I think the latter group will be the larger. Consequently, we need to start thinking about them now. This will be a tough time for a lot of our neighbors. I know there may be some governmental relief, but I doubt it will be enough. This will be a community effort to get everyone through it. More to follow in later columns. As you know, the council recently lost its friend and colleague from District 2, Councilmember John Masson. The city council now has the obligation to appoint someone from District 2 to serve until the November election. If you are interested or know someone, please check the city website for an application. The deadline for submission is 15 April. Stay informed, Be Kind, Remember your neighbor, Stay safe!

I gave her a fifty dollar bill. She gave me back $46.64.
I gave the money back to her and told her that she had made a mistake in MY favour.
She became indignant and informed me she was educated and knew what she was doing, and she returned the money again.
I gave her the money back -- same scenario! I departed the store with the $46.64. They Walk Among Us! .....
I walked into a Starbucks with a buy-one-get-one-free coupon for a Grande Latte. I handed it to the girl and she looked over at a little chalkboard that said 'buy one-get one free.' "They're already buy-one- get-onefree," she said, "so I guess they're both free." She handed me my free lattes, and I walked out the door.

One day I was walking down the beach with some friends, when one of them shouted, "Look at that dead bird!" Someone looked up at the sky and asked, "Where?" They Walk Among Us! .....
While looking at a house, my brother asked the real estate agent which direction was north; because, he explained, he didn't want the sun waking him up every morning. She asked, "Does the sun rise in the north?"
When my brother explained that the sun rises in the East, and has for sometime; she shook her head and said, "Oh I don't keep up with all that stuff." They Walk Among Us!! ..... I used to work in technical support for a 24/7 call center. One day I got a call from an individual who asked what hours the call center was open. I told him, "The number you dialed is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week." He responded, "Is that Eastern or

Wanting to end the call quickly, I said, "Uh, Pacific." They Walk Among Us! .....
My sister has a lifesaving tool in her car designed to cut through a seat belt if she gets trapped. She keeps it in the trunk. They Walk Among Us! ..... My friends and I went out to buy beer and noticed that the cases were discounted 10%. Since it was a big party, we bought two cases. The cashier multiplied two times 10% and gave us a 20% discount. They Walk Among Us! .....
I couldn't find my luggage at the airport baggage area, so I went to the lost luggage office and told the woman there that my bags never showed up. She smiled and told me not to worry because she was a trained professional, and I was in good hands. "Now," she asked me, "has your plane arrived yet?" So I replied, "No Ma'am, The Pilot told us we're circling the airport, 3rd in line to land" ..... They Walk Among Us! .....
While working at a pizza place, I observed a man ordering a small pizza to go. He appeared to be alone, and the cook asked him if he would like it cut into four pieces or six.. He thought about it for some time before responding. "Just cut it into four pieces. I don't think I'm hungry enough to eat six pieces." Yep, they walk among us; and worse yet, the really scary part is...... THEY REPRODUCE!

2. The decrease in household or business income or the outof-pocket medical expenses described in subsection (a)(1) was caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. b. A landlord who knows that a residential or commercial tenant cannot pay some or all of the rent temporarily for the reasons set forth in Paragraph a, above, shall not serve a notice pursuant to Code of Civil Procedure section 1161(2), file or prosecute an unlawful detainer action based on a 3-day pay or quit notice, or otherwise seek to evict for nonpayment of rent. A landlord knows of a residential or commercial tenant’s inability to pay rent within the meaning of this Ordinance if the residential or commercial tenant, within 30 days after the date that rent is due, notifies the landlord in writing of lost income and inability to pay full rent due to financial impacts related to COVID-19 and provides documentation to support the claim. For purposes of this Ordinance, “in writing” includes email or text communications to a landlord or landlord’s representative or agent with whom the tenant has previously corresponded by email or text. Any medical or financial information provided to the landlord shall be held in confidence and only used for evaluating the residential or commercial tenant’s claim. Section 4. This Ordinance applies to nonpayment eviction notices and unlawful detainer actions for commercial and residential tenants based on such notices, served or filed on or after the date on which a local emergency was proclaimed (March 16, 2020). Section 5. Nothing in this Ordinance shall relieve a tenant of the obligation to pay rent, nor restrict a landlord’s ability to recover rent due, including any late fees imposed by an underlying rental agreement.
Section 6. This Ordinance shall be punishable as set forth in San Marcos Municipal Code section 1.14.030 and any other applicable section. In addition, this Ordinance grants a defense in the event that an unlawful detainer action is commenced in violation of this Ordinance. Section 7.Unless extended by City Council, this Ordinance
shall remain in effect until close of business on May 31, 2020.
Section 8. This is not a project within the meaning of Section 15378 of the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) Guidelines because there is no potential for it to result in a physical change in the environment, either directly or indirectly. In the event this Ordinance is found to be subject to CEQA, it is exempt from CEQA pursuant to the exemption contained in CEQA Guidelines Section 15061(b)(3) because it can be seen with certainty that there is no possibility of a significant effect on the environment. Section 9. If any section, sentence, clause or phrase of this Ordinance is determined to be invalid, illegal or unconstitutional by a decision or order of any court or agency of competent jurisdiction, then such decision or order will not affect the validity and enforceability of the remaining portions of this Ordinance. The City Council declares that it would have passed and adopted the Ordinance, and each section, sentence, clause or phrase thereof, regardless of the fact that any one or more sections, subsections, sentences, clauses, or phrases be declared invalid or unconstitutional.
Section 10. Pursuant to Government Code section 36936, this Ordinance shall be effective immediately upon its adoption. Within fifteen (15) days following its adoption, the City Clerk shall certify to the passage of this Ordinance and cause the same to be published, or the title thereof as a summary, in accordance with the provisions of State law in a newspaper of general circulation designated for legal notices publication in the City of San Marcos. PASSED, APPROVED AND ADOPTED at a regular meeting of the City Council of the City of San Marcos, California, held on the 24th day of March, 2020, by the following roll call vote:

Theodore Roosevelt's ideas on Immigrants and being an AMERICAN in 1907
'In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American ... There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag ... We have room for but one language here, and that is the English ... And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.'
Theodore Roosevelt 1907
