On the surface they had little in common: Henry James Fonda was an agnostic; James Maitland Stewart was a churchgoing Presbyterian. Hank was a New Deal Democrat; Jim a conservative Republican. Hank had five wives and often difficult relationships with his children, while Jim was married once and was adored by his off-spring. The Paper - 760.747.7119
Despite their differences, these angular actors of Hollywood's Golden Age maintained a 50-plus year friendship that lasted through war, marriage, children, careers and everything in between, writes Scott Eyman, in his book, Hank and Jim. So, what was the glue that held this friendship together? Shared Experience
The first thing an outsider would
notice about Henry Fonda and Jimmy Stewart’s relationship is they were small-town boys in a big city. Fonda was born in Grand Island, Nebraska – Stewart was born and raised in Indiana, Pennsylvania. Secondly, at the time when fewer than 3% of the American population went to college, both of them had that distinction - Fonda attended University of Minnesota

for two years; Stewart graduated from Princeton.
A third shared experience was both volunteered to service in World War II, with Fonda enlisting in the Navy as an ordinary seaman, third class. (A one striper, old salts would call him.) He went on to win a Bronze Star for his contributions in the Air Combat Intelligence Office.

Stewart elected to join the Army Air Corps, enlisting as a private – a ‘slick sleeve’. When he left the service in late summer of 1945, he was a colonel, the highest rank attained by any Hollywood star who went to war.
During their almost four years of military service, Fonda and Steward were never out of contact longer than one month, writes Eyman. "The friendship they created gave them a safe place away from the fears and frustrations of their careers, their domestic problems and responsibilities of their legendary status as actors," he wrote in his dual biography of Fonda (1905-1982) and Stewart (1908-1997). Shared Interests
A second reason the Fonda Stewart friendship lasted so long was a shared interest – acting. They met before the war at the Omaha (Nebraska) Community Play House, an actor’s equity group, and eventually became roommates. They migrated at about the same time to New York to test their skills on Broadway, with Fonda experiencing the most
Give Us This Day Our Daily Chuckle This week, a compendium of wit, wisdom and neat stuff you can tell at parties. Enjoy! Jessie the chicken plucker
What a wonderful story ---- I never knew............ A DREAMER AND HIS DREAM Let me tell you, Jesse hated this job. And you would too. Imagine, if you had to do it.
Jesse was a chicken plucker. That's right. He stood on a line in a chicken factory and spent his days pulling the feathers off dead chickens so the rest of us wouldn't have to.
It wasn't much of a job. But at the time, Jesse didn't think he was much of a person. His father was a brute of a man. His dad was actually thought to be mentally ill and treated Jesse rough all of his life. Jesse's older brother wasn't much
success there. Still, he wanted more exposure and the money that came with that, so he followed Stewart to Hollywood in the early 1930s. They again became roomies, though not of necessity this time, but out of friendship.
In 1934, Stewart hit it big with, “The Murder Man.” Fonda’s breakthrough role came a year later in “The Farmer Takes a Wife.” Their impact on Hollywood and Broadway lasted for over 50 years. According to actress Joan Blondel who shared billing with both in several movies, “When they weren’t acting, they were drinking together, talking acting, discussing playwrights and the state of our profession. They shared the same conviction that the key to a great role was great writing.” Both Fonda and Stewart were music fans. They often hosted parties to hear recordings by Nat ‘King’ Cole, Hoagy Carmichael, Dinah Shore and others – sometimes with the performers themselves sharing a nip or two with their fans. Shared Journey
Yes, Stewart and Fonda enjoyed better.
He was always picking on Jesse and beating him up.
Yes, Jesse grew up in a very rough home in West Virginia. Life was anything but easy. And he thought life didn't hold much hope for him. That's why he was standing in this chicken line, Doing a job that darn few people wanted.
In addition to all the rough treatment at home, it seems that Jesse was always sick. Sometimes it was real physical illness, but way too often it was all in his head. He was a small child, skinny and meek. That sure didn't help the situation any.
When he started to school, he was the object of every bully on the playground. He was a hypochondriac of the first order. For Jesse, tomorrow was not always something he looked forward to. But, he had dreams. He wanted to be a ventriloquist. He found books on ventriloquism. He practiced with sock puppets and saved his hard earned dollars until he could get a real ventriloquist dummy.
When he got old enough, he joined the military. And even though many of his hypochondriac symptoms persisted, the military did recognize his talents and put him in the entertainment corp. That was when his world changed. He gained confidence.
similar careers, but their personal lives differed vastly. At one time it seemed Fonda would marry every eligible lady in Hollywood, and those he missed Stewart would date. According to movie magazines of the day, Stewart danced and romanced some of Hollywood’s most glamorous stars: Norma Shearer, Marlene Dietrich and Olivia de Havilland. He was 41, when Gloria Hatrick McLean, a tall, witty divorcee with twin boys captured his heart. Their 1949 marriage lasted 48 years, with such box office stars as Spencer Tracy, Gary Cooper, Ray Milland, Jack Benny and David Niven watching as they exchanged vows. (Hank had other fish to fry – he was starring on Broadway in Mr. Roberts, and unable to attend the ceremony.) Fonda's marital history is more complicated. The wisdom he showed in his career choices was lacking in his life partnerships. His second wife, Frances Ford Fonda, gave birth to Jane, in 1937, and Peter in 1940, both destined to be stars in their own right. Their mother however, suffered severe emotional problems and committed suicide in 1950. Fonda married two more times, until in 1965, with his fifth wife, Shirlee Mae Adams, he found happiness. This
He found that he had a talent for making people laugh, and laugh so hard they often had tears in their eyes. Yes, little Jesse had found himself.
You know, folks, the history books are full of people who overcame a handicap to go on and make a success of themselves, but Jesse is one of the few I know of who didn't overcome it. Instead he used his paranoia to make a million dollars, and become one of the best-loved characters of all time in doing it! Yes, that little paranoid hypochondriac, who transferred his nervousness into a successful career, still holds the record for the most Emmy's given in a single category.
union lasted seventeen years.
While Shared Experiences, Shared Interests and Shared Journey, explains the Henry Fonda - Jimmy Stewart friendship, psychologist Katherine Hurst, author of “The Law of Attraction,” has published seven characteristics that her research shows define most longterm relationships. She says, “Friendship is undeniably important for everyone’s mental and emotional well-being. With a solid personal support network in place, you can meet just about any challenge life throws at you. Plus, things go better when you’re surrounded by companions who appreciate and truly ‘get’ you.”
This leads to the question, what is a true friend? What qualities must a good friendship have? How can you tell if a current relationship is worth cultivating? What traits do you want in a friend? Remember, it’s easy to be mesmerized into an unhealthy relation that lacks the richness true friendship provides, so Hurst gives us some guidelines to govern our friendships.

7 Qualities Of A Good Friend
Hurst says, “You may have two equally good friends who are entirely different from each other in most respects. However, the vast majority of high-quality friendships feature certain core traits that lead to a sustained and mutual sense of empathy, comfort, love and understanding. She provides a check list to determine which of your acquaintances has the desired characteristics to be a stalwart friend.
1. Honesty Hurst says that the most important trait of a best friend is honesty. “Your friends should tactfully tell you the truth and be straightforward when it comes to discussions about clothes, romance, job opportunities and how others perceive you. And they’ll do this without being cruel or abusive. Deceitfulness and manipulativeness are tell-tale signs a person isn’t your friend. Remember, if she or he lies to others, it’s likely they’ll be dishonest with you as well.” 2. Accepting

“Great friends are accepting, even when their lives diverge from yours. They’ll understand that your choices are yours and recognize that what’s right for them isn’t necessarily right for you. They won’t try to make you change how you look, pressure you to do things that are uncomfortable for you or fight with you when your viewpoint is different from theirs. Challenge you, yes – but a real friend wants you to stick to your values, in an even-handed way, not change who you are to get along.” 3. Low-Maintenance Hurst says, “Another characteristic of a good friend is the ability to reconnect after time spent apart. In other words, real friends don’t need your attention every minute of every day and easily understand you have other commitments that do not necessarily include them.”
4. Non-Judgmental Additionally, good friends help you feel confident about who you are, not induce self-doubt in your looks, your clothes, your viewpoints. “Indeed, a non-judgmental approach is a desirable characteristic of good people generally. Your friends should listen to you, put themselves in your shoes, even try to relate to a different belief

system if necessary.”
Friends who try to convince you that there’s a ‘right’ way and a ‘wrong’ way often turn out to be bullies who detract from your individuality. It’s your uniqueness that actually attracts others to you, so celebrate it. 5. Loyal Hurst says loyalty is unquestionably a highly desirable quality for a friend to possess. Will this person stick by you no matter what? Are they fickle? “Best friends help us when we struggle, whatever the cause,” she says.
On a personal note, I once received a greeting card that said, “A good friend will visit you in jail, a great friend will bail you out.” I saw this adage in action on a hospital visit when visiting a sick friend. A man with a long relation with my sick friend came into the room, went straight to the closet and tossed in a duffel bag. Our conversation that evening mostly centered on the graduation of the hospitalized man’s son graduating from the police academy the next day. As visiting hours ended, the other two men spoke softly to each other. Outside, I enquired as to this conversation. The OldTime friend laughed. “I told

6. Respectful Hurst heralds mutual respect as a powerful trait in solid friendships. Conversely, a lack of it is a warning sign to terminate that relationship. Respect has many facets. For example, your friend should keep your secrets, not talk behind your back, and value your time as well as allow you to form your own opinion, and not pay attention to group talk or gossip. Further, if your ‘friend’ blabs about others business to you, it’s likely they’ll disclose your secrets to others.
7. Trustworthy Trustworthiness is key to great friendships. Here’s an example: Greg was suddenly called back to the Midwest on family business which necessitated his moving back there. (This was before Amazon and cell phones, remember.) An antique dealer, Greg was expecting a shipment of rare

The Paper • Page 4 • April 4, 2019 SEVEN MEN ARESTED DURING ONLINE PROSTITUTION OPERATION
On March 26, the Escondido Police Department partnered with the San Diego Human Trafficking Task Force, and Detectives from San Diego Sheriff Department, National City Police Department, San Diego County Probation, San Diego Police Department, San Diego County District Attorney’s Office, California Department of Justice, and the Naval Criminal Investigative Service conducted an operation targeting individuals seeking prostitution via the internet. As a result of this enforcement effort, seven men made arrangements over the internet to trade money for sex acts. These men went to an agreed location where they were contacted and arrested by law enforcement officers for the violation of California Penal Code 647(b)(1) – soliciting or agreeing to participate in any act of prostitution. Photographs and biographical information for the arrestees appear below.
Often, these activities occur at the direction of criminal gangs and/or organized crime.
If you are a victim of human trafficking or suspect someone who is, please get help by calling the National Human Trafficking Resource Center toll free, 24/7 Hotline at (888) 373-7888 or text HELP to 233733 (BEFREE). If you or someone else is in immediate danger, CALL 9-1-1. Please follow the Escondido Police Department (@EscondidoPolice) on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter. To report any suspicious activities

Craig decided to crack down on prostitution in the Escondido area and The Paper began to receive weekly reports of prostitutes who had been arrested, along with their photos and rap sheets. It became a popular reader’s choice. Then Craig decided to go after the “johns.”
My compliments to the Escondido Police Department. They, along with a number of other law enforcement agencies pulled off a sting operation that caught a lot of “johns.” (See lead story above in local news). This story brought back some pleasant memories of when Craig Carter, our current Chief of Police, was still on the streets looking after the public welfare.
I believe he was a Lieutenant at the time - was an active member of our Kiwanis Club and scheduled to be its next president. Fate intervened and he was tasked with being the official spokesman for the department as he and the department dealt with the murder of two beautiful young girls.
The story of ancient Indian astronomers and observatories found in San Diego County by your writer Friederick Gomez was groundbreaking news and a landmark cover story!
Prostitution is not a victimless crime. This criminal activity has evolved and often includes young women who are coerced to participate in prostitution often arranged online. Many of these women are forced to use highly addictive drugs, suffer physical assaults, and are forced to perform sexual acts against their will as initiation into this modern form of slave labor.
Man About Town
Letters to the Editor
We began to get photos and background data on men who had been arrested for patronizing prostitutes. We developed a special feature section which we called the “John’s Corner.” Our readers loved it and looked forward to reading it every week. And then it stopped.
I called Craig at the Cop House and asked him why we weren’t getting any more photos and arrest stories about the hookers and their johns. “It’s because we’ve chased them all out of town,” he said, “or put them in jail.”
And that is how law enforcement is supposed to work - and that, along with a lot of other accomplishments, is why Craig Carter was appointed to be our Chief of Police. By all accounts he’s doing an out-
standing job, pleasing the public and city officials alike - and his department seems to be flowing smoothly - catching the naughty guys and gals, making sure traffic flows properly and protecting the good folks . . . you know, like you and me. I reckon a couple more sting operations and Escondido’s ‘working girls’ and their patrons will move on to greener pastures. Fine by me.
••••• One of my best pals, San Marcos dentist, Dr. Greg Hurt, tells me remodeling is taking place at the center where his offices are located.

I can tell you that Greg Hurt has done much of my dental work and I believe him to be a world class dentist. I recall about a year ago when I had a root canal done. Absolutely painless and Greg and his staff treated me like I was royalty and the number of staff attending me worked in such a fashion that I felt as though a symphony was being

Greg’s friend, Jason was fearful these instructions might not be followed. He visited Greg’s old address daily to see if the expected delivery had arrived. On the sixteenth day, his diligence was rewarded. Bob put the boxes in his car and remailed them to Greg’s Midwest address at considerable time and expense, wiring his friend when to expect them. I asked Jason why he went to this trouble. “What was I supposed to do? Let someone I don’t know get something my friend needed in his business? I’d be a piss poor friend to let that happen.”

Michael Morrison changed his name to John Wayne in 1929. He and Bond appeared in twentythree films together, including Wayne’s break out movie, The Big Trail.
Neither of them served in the military during WWII. Bond was epileptic, Wayne was deferred due to his age – he was 34 at the time of Pearl Harbor. But after the war they campaigned for conservative political issues, especially anything that seemed communist inspired, (but their rhetoric was without the rancor of today’s political disagreements). In a radio interview with Paul Harvey, Bond said, “Duke Wayne is the most bull-headed, opinionated guy you’ll ever met. When he’s had a drink or two of tequila, or sour mash bourbon, he can be down right nasty. Because of his size and reputation folks put up with him, which is good for Wayne, because he broke his collar bone surfing, not playing football and he fights like a girl. But, if he tells you he’ll be some place, you can count on him being there.” In an interview with “The Hollywood Reporter,” discussing his own contributions to the conservative cause, Bond waved off
Like most of us, I suspect, I thought badgers were cute but ornery animals that one found only in places like Wisconsin, Minnesota, Michigan, Washington State and Alaska. Wrong!
Many people, including me, didn’t know that badgers are actually native to San Diego County. They are carnivores, and eat ground squirrels and pocket gophers. Many staff at Project Wildlife commented that they have never seen a badger before. It is very rare to have one at the Wildlife Center.
any credit saying, Wayne was the best fund raiser the Republican Party ever had. “You can always count on Duke to fire up the bluehairs,” Bond said, “he gets those ladies to reach for their checkbooks, fast.”
Even Abbie Hoffman, the 1960s political activist paid tribute to Wayne, saying, "I like his wholeness, his style. As for his politics, well—I suppose even cavemen felt a little admiration for the dinosaurs that were trying to gobble them up." In 1960, Bond campaigned for Richard M. Nixon, the Republican candidate for president, but died three days before Democrat John F. Kennedy was elected. When asked his opinion of this, Wayne said, “I’ll miss my pal, Ward Bond more than I’ll miss Mr. Nixon. I wish he’d won, but Kennedy did so I’ll support him. He’s my president now. I wish him well.” A gracious statement that showed loyalty to his friend and patriotism to his country. •••• Marvin Branstetter and Lloyd Locke were born in the same hospital in Skokie, Illinois, a few days apart in 1957.

Someone called to report that they found a badger and it did not seem to be moving all day. The DAS officer picked it up and transported it to the Pilar & Chuck Bahde Wildlife Center for care. When the badger came into our care, he was a little dehydrated and our vets administered fluids. Upon our initial assessments, there are no visible signs of injury.

After boot camp they were assigned to the same Marine detachment in Central California where Marvin was Lloyd’s squad leader until, at 5’ 8” and quick as a hiccup, he made the 11th Naval District football team as a half back. The team travelled widely playing military schools and small college teams across America. Marvin’s reaction to his friend’s athletic success? “Just don’t get hurt,” he admonished Locke.
Lloyd would often call Marvin after a game to report the outcome. Marvin’s first question was always the same. “You okay, Buddy? You hurt anyplace?” But when telling others about the game he’d proudly brag, “That damn Locke. He ran for 87 yards and a touchdown. We went to school together, you know.”

I reckon these folks at the Wildlife Center have a difficult time when it comes to return these animals to the wild. Cute little critters but the wild is their home. That’s where they need to be.

Lloyd found employment at a local shipping center, first as a maintenance man on the midnight to eight shift, then after 7 years, as a fork lift operator and 9 years later, Shipping and Receiving Manager. His family owned twelve-acres on a farm-to-market road just outside of Skokie. It was mostly pasture, but with a 2-acre lake stocked with bluegill, bass and catfish that made fishermen drool.
Marvin bought a boat, and every Friday after work he and his wife would drive 289 miles in his Ford pickup to fish with Lloyd on the lake, drinking a beer or two and frying their catch on the bank. Over the next 25 years this was their routine, missing only 5 weekends during that time. (In winter the two would rabbit and quail hunt on nearby properties, repair the boat and it’s larger replacement, build a 3-room ‘hunting’ cabin, plant 50 walnut trees and fence the property.) Beatrice, bless her soul, would wash and iron Lloyd’s uniforms and clean house since he was not married. When Marvin’s son was born, Lloyd was there. When first Lloyd’s Dad, and then 8 months later, his mother died, Marvin and Beatrice were at the funeral. When Marvin’s son came down with an undiagnosed illness that left him weak and hobbled, he went to Uncle Lloyd’s lake to recuperate.
Then, things changed at Branstetter household. The airline Marvin worked for merged with another, forcing him to take a drastic pay cut. Eighteen months later he was pink slipped. He found work, first as a small engine repairman until that company went belly up, then as a replacement window installer before it was wiped out by the Great Recession. Finally, he found steady work cleaning grease traps in restaurants, usually at night or on off-hours. At the same time, Beatrice’s medical billing job fell to automation and her mother’s illness required Beatrice’s full attention. Their
son’s illness, diagnosed now as Lou Gehrig’s disease, returned. Long weekends spent fishing the lake in Skokie became a memory.
The news at Lloyd’s casa was hardly better. He’d gotten married in his late 50s. His wife did not find joy in bobbing around on a boat in the middle of a lake, swatting mosquitoes only to pull small fish from the dirty water, not when you could buy perfectly good tilapia, already cleaned and filleted at the local supermarket. Lloyd’s over-all health was good but too many tackles on the football field had damaged his knees, he needed replacement surgery. Lake time with the Branstetter’s seemed a world away. Through it all though, Lloyd and Marvin stayed in touch. Their Saturday morning phone call was the highlight of their week. They also talked on each other’s birthday, on Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year’s, St. Patty’s Day and the Super Bowl, or whenever the mood struck. Several years ago Lloyd bought a riding lawn mower. “Why did you do that,” Marvin asked. “The only exercise you get now is mowing the lawn.”
“I can mow my yard now and my neighbor’s too,” Lloyd replied.
Two weeks later, Marvin brought home his riding lawn mower, used but serviceable. Neighbors up and down the block hired him to mow their grass. “That Lloyd has some good ideas,” Marvin says, “we went to school together you know.”
Marvin and Beatrice buried their son in 1996. As usual, Lloyd was there but when Beatrice’s mother died in ’98, it was just them at the funeral. “Lloyd called an after we got back from the cemetery,” Marvin says. Marvin retired ten years ago; Lloyd when he was 72. Marvin and Beatrice get by on social security and the occasional odd job Marvin picks up – she had a stroke five years ago- and Marvin had a small heart attack around Christmas – so the Branstetter’s budget is cramped. Still, come this Fourth of July, they’ll make the trip to Skokie, staying in the hunting cabin Marvin helped Lloyd build, with grand plans to catch big ones. “If we don’t get a bite that’s okay,” says Marvin, “me and Lloyd will talk old times and

California is the world’s tech capitol. Some of the most technologically advanced companies like Uber, Facebook, and Apple were born in Silicon Valley. While our private sector can master startups and see them flourish, almost every IT project the state tries to implement is over budget, past due and outdated. We should be able to access our government, increase public transparency for legislation and government documents, create efficiencies and save taxpayer dollars. Even doing more online transactions for DMV would be a big start.
Last summer the state unveiled its $290 million tax software upgrade that actually ended up making it more difficult to file taxes online. A $900 million accounting system took 14 years to build, is now causing delays and threatening to lower the state’s credit rating. Another $44 million was spent on a failed IT modernization program for the DMV. The task force that tracks California’s IT projects found that eight of 26 major projects were failing or needed corrective action. I have presented several pieces of legislation to address these issues through the years, yet the majority in Sacramento fail to act. It has got“Living large” in San Marcos.
Nome and I are like thousands of other couples young and old in North County. We can afford to spurge once in a while but we truly enjoy finding the hidden gems in our area. The lesser known places where you get to feel special. Then there is that feeling of satisfaction you get from knowing that you got a really good deal.
You can have a marvelous dinner for two at any number of great Italian ristorantes and trattorias here in North County.
ten so bad that 43 of 64 state entities using new technology programs also had to use their old IT systems to get the job done, causing duplication and delays. Using outdated and inefficient computer systems wastes tax dollars, creates inefficient workflows and erodes trust in our government’s ability to get things done. Consistently going over budget and extending deadlines for IT projects is unacceptable. We must embrace the digital age. I introduced the Government Modernization Act of 2019 to do just that. We will harness the power of California’s tech industry and bring in private sector experts for a fresh perspective to make recommendations on IT problems our state has struggled with for years. Technology is constantly changing and California needs to keep up. We should have a state government that is productive, fast-paced and innovative.

Dinner for two and a pleasant bottle of wine will likely cost you $70 with tax and tip but it’s worth every penny.

The Queen Of The ‘Algonquin Round Table’
One of America’s greatest writers and poets known for her wit, sardonic, and satirical wisecracks was Dorothy Rothschild Parker. Known to most of her friends and admirers as “Miss Parker,” she was born Aug. 22, 1893. She was a founding member of the Hotel Algonquin’s “Round Table.”
How did the person who made the first clock know what time it was. Why Ethel changed hotels:
Last week, Ethel checked into a motel on her 60th birthday and she was a bit lonely. She thought, "I'll call one of those men you see advertised in phone books for escorts and sensual massages." She looked through the phone book, found a full page ad for a guy calling himself Tender Tony, a very handsome man with assorted physical skills flexing in the photo. He had all the right muscles in all the right places, thick wavy hair, long powerful legs, dazzling smile, six pack abs and she felt quite certain she could bounce a sixpence off his well-oiled buns.... She figured, what the heck, nobody will ever know. I'll give him a call. "Good evening, ma'am, how may I help you? Oh my, he sounded sooooo sexy! Afraid she would lose her nerve if she hesitated, she rushed right in,
"I hear you give a great massage. I'd like you to come to my motel room and give me one. No, wait, I should be straight with you. I'm in town all alone and what I really want is sex. I want it hot, and I want it now. Bring implements, toys, rubber, leather, whips, everything you've got in your bag of tricks. We'll go hot and heavy all night ….. tie me up, cover me in chocolate syrup and whipped cream, anything and everything, I'm ready! Now how does that sound?" He said, "That sounds absolutely fantastic, ma’am, but you need to press 9 for an outside line." •••• A lot of people seem to forget their other four fingers when waving to me.
Chuckles Cont. on Page 8
In 1917, she met and married Edwin Pond Parker II, but they were soon separated by his World War II service. She had ambivalent feelings about her Jewish heritage and later joked that she married to escape her name.
Parker's career took off in 1918, while she was writing theatre criticism for Vanity Fair. At the magazine, she met Robert Benchley and Robert E. Sherwood. The trio began lunching at the Algonquin Hotel on a near-daily basis and became founding members of what became known as the “Algonquin Round Table.” Parker began developing a national reputation as a wit. When she heard of the passing of famously “silent” former president Calvin Coolidge, Parker remarked, "How could they tell?"
Parker became noted for her short, viciously humorous poems, many highlighting ludicrous aspects of her many (largely unsuccessful) romantic affairs. Some of Parker's most popular work was published in The New Yorker in the form of acerbic book reviews under the byline "Constant Reader". Her response to the whimsy of A. A. Milne's “The House at Pooh Corner” was "Tonstant Weader fwowed up.”
She had a number of affairs; her lovers including reporter-turned-playwright Charles MacArthur. That relationship resulted in a pregnancy. Parker is alleged to have said, "… how like me to put all my eggs into one bastard.”
In 1932, Parker met Alan Campbell, whom she married two years later. They moved to Hollywood and would eventually earn $2,000 per week, and in some instances upwards of $5,000 per week as freelancers for various studios. She and Campbell worked on more than 15 films.
With Campbell and Robert Carson, Parker wrote the script for the 1937 Academy Award-winning film “A Star
Is Born,” starring Fredric March. The team was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Writing of a Screenplay. Parker wrote additional dialogue for “The Little Foxes” in 1941, starring Bette Davis. She received a nomination for an Oscar for the screenplay of “Smash-Up, the Story of a Woman” (1947), starring Susan Hayward. During the Great Depression, Parker was among numerous American intellectuals and artists who became involved in related social movements. In 1937, she was a reporter for the Loyalist cause in Spain in the Communist magazine, The New Masses. Parker helped to found the Hollywood Anti-Nazi League in 1936, which the FBI suspected of being a Communist Party front. The Hollywood Anti-Nazi League's membership eventually grew to some 4,000 strong, later becoming a target for the HUAC. The FBI compiled a 1,000-page dossier on Parker because of her suspected involvement in Communism during the early fifties when Senator Joseph McCarthy was raising alarms about communists in government and Hollywood. As a result, movie studio bosses placed her on the Hollywood blacklist. Her final screenplay was “The Fan,” a 1949 adaptation of Oscar Wilde's “Lady Windermere's Fan,” directed by Otto Preminger.
Back in New York, Parker occasionally participated in radio programs, including “Information Please.” Both Ilka Chase and Tallulah Bankhead used her material for radio monologues. Parker died on June 7, 1967, of a heart attack at the age of 73. Her executor, author and friend was Lillian Hellman, but her ashes remained unclaimed in her attorney Paul O'Dwyer's filing cabinet for 17 years. Parker would have had some great observations about life in 2019.
“You can lead a horticulture, but you can't make her think.” “Beauty is only skin deep, but ugly goes clean to the bone.” “The two most beautiful words in the English language are 'cheque enclosed.'"
“One more drink and I’ll be under the host.” “I’d rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy.”
“I require three things in a man: he must be handsome, ruthless, and stupid.” “By the time you swear you’re his, Shivering and sighing, And he vows his passion is Infinite, undying Lady, make a note of this: One of you is lying."
“To cut on my tombstone: ‘Wherever she went, including here, it was against her better judgment.’” “Excuse my dust” for her epitaph -and it was.

asked him, "How can I get my kite in the air?" He told me to run off a cliff. I went to a massage parlor. It was self-service. My wife only has sex with me for a purpose. Last night she used me to time an egg.
It's tough to stay married. My wife kisses the dog on the lips, yet she won't drink from my glass!
Last night my wife met me at the front door. She was wearing a sexy negligee. The only trouble was, she was coming home. A girl phoned me and said, "Come on over. There's nobody home." I went over. Nobody was home!
A hooker once told me she had a headache. If it weren't for pickpockets, I'd have no sex life at all.
I was making love to this girl and she started crying. I said, "Are you going to hate yourself in the morning?" She said, "No, I hate myself now." I knew a girl so ugly... they use her in prisons to cure sex offenders. My wife is such a bad cook, if we leave dental floss in the kitchen the roaches hang themselves.

April's 2nd Saturdays Free Art Lesson Features Fabric - Create Your Very Own Fabric Collage, at the Education Department at the California Center for the Arts, Escondido (CCAE) where they are hosting another free 2nd Saturday art lesson on Saturday, April 13th. Taking inspiration from Convergence/Convergencia artist, Irma Sofia Poeter, the art lesson will explore the unusual medium of fabric. Poeter uses recycled or acquired textiles to
sew intricate collages that speak to many different themes such as cultural identity, the human body, spiritual journeys, iconography, war, and many more. For Poeter, the fabric she uses allows her to tell important stories and provides a healing, meditative experience for her mind and heart. This art project is one of self-expression, so guests are encouraged to bring meaningful photos or objects, or come ready to reflect on themes important to them to influence their work. Options for creating animal-scapes or landscapes will be available as well. This is a free event; there are two 1-hour classes available at 10am and 11:15am. Space is limited and seats are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Enjoy the museum exhibition for free before or after your art lesson. Donations are appreciated.

She and Henri have been friends some 89 years. They met in kindergarten in Muncie, Indiana and even though Jane moved to California in the early 60s, she and Henri talk on the phone weekly. Jane’s annual visits back to her hometown ended several years ago. What do they talk about? “For years I subscribed to the Muncie Star Press,” Jane says. “So we’d talk about who got married and who had kids and who worked where. Now, we talk about who died, and where they’ll be buried, and family news. And girl things, like movies and having our hair done and our nails painted.” Henri is not Jane’s only long-term friend.

When Jeanne fell and broke her hip on a cruise, Jane’s daughter flew to the ship and escorted Jeanne home.
Jeanne was diagnosed with lung cancer. Jane visited her in the hospital and at her home, often with her daughter who drove them through the Northern California hills and to restaurants for lunch. The cancer progressed. After four years they met one Saturday morning knowing this was probably their last visit. They ate crab cakes and salad – a favorite of Jeanne’s - savoring one last small glass of wine. They spoke of their children and “remember when’s” and trips with their ‘foodie’ group. Too soon, Jeanne grew tired. Her attendant pushed her wheel chair to the door, Jane holding her hand. At the door the two friends hugged for the last time. Then, at the same time they spoke. “Okay, Kiddo. I’ll see ya on the other side.” Moments later Jeanne’s wheel chair disappeared down the long hall. A little later as her daughter drove her toward home, Jane said, “Life has lots of death in it if you live long enough.” About the Author: “Pete” Peterson is one of the great storytellers of all

California Could be Holding Some of Your Money – According to State Controller Betty Yee, California is sitting on unclaimed properties valued at $9.3 billion. But there is great news – you can get it back. Visit claimit.ca.gov to see if any of these unclaimed funds belong to you. It’s easy to check to see if you have unclaimed funds. Once you access the website, simply type in your name and see if you’re listed. If it looks like you have some funds coming to you, you can file a claim immediately if the value is less than $5,000. Higher amounts require you to mail a form and takes longer to process. Also, remember there is no
charge to retrieve your property from the State Controller, so watch out for scams that try to charge for this free service. In February, 33,000 people received their unclaimed properties, valued at over $23 million. Don’t let the state keep funds that may legitimately belong to you. Visit the Controller’s website today. And if you have additional questions, contact the Controller’s Unclaimed Property Division at 800.992.4547.
Flu Activity Still Elevated, Mask Requirement Extended – The number of lab-confirmed flu cases went down again last week, however, three additional influenza deaths were reported, bringing this season’s total to 49, the County Health and Human Services Agency announced. A total of 508 influenza cases were reported last week, compared to the 574 the week before. “Influenza activity in the region is still elevated. People should continue taking precautions to avoid getting sick,” said Wilma Wooten, M.D., M.P.H., County public health officer. “The flu vaccine is safe and effective.” The number of people with influenza-like symptoms who showed up at local emergency departments went up one percentage point last week, reaching 6 percent again. Due to continued elevated influenza activity in the county, Wooten is extending, until April 30th, the order for unvaccinated health care personnel to wear a mask while they’re in patient care areas. If flu activity remains elevated, a further extension may be required. In addition to getting vaccinated, people should also do the following to avoid getting sick, wash hands thoroughly and often; use hand sanitizers; stay away from sick people; avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth; clean commonly touched surfaces; and if you are sick, stay home and avoid contact with others. The flu vaccine is available at doctors’ offices, community clinics, and retail pharmacies. If you don’t have medical insurance, you can go to a

Pastor Richard Huls (Reteired)
THE DRAMA OF EASTER
Of all the months of the year, April is the most dynamic. It celebrates the event that changed the world- the resurrection from the dead of the person, Jesus. Of course, there are many aspects to His life on which we can concentrate, such as His teachings and miracles. The one factor that gives credibility to what both He and His followers claimed, that He was the Messiah (the anointed one) and God’s living word, was His resurrection. It is the theme of the season with Easter bunnies and eggs, lilies, and new clothes. It is the excitement of the new, supernatural, and mystical. It provokes or inspires multiple
We live in a world of need, problems, uncertainty, sickness, anxiety, fear, and death. In order to survive and face this life with any joy, peace, happiness, and confidence we reach out to the “beyond” – something new and captivating. It is a resurrection. This is given to us in the story of Jesus and His resurrection. Neither the grave, death, or all the cruelty of mankind could defeat Him. He steps out of the grave and leaves behind his old world of clothes and struggle. But he doesn’t stop there. It is that event which changed the world from hopelessness to life. His word is to believe in His resurrection to have newness of life, both in the here and now, and for all eternity. What greater force is there? It produces all the drama of the Easter season.

Escondido • Mayor Paul “Mac” Mcnamara Recognizing City Staff and their Contributions
The best highlight of this week was attending the service pin event for the city employees. Pins were given out for years of service starting at 5 and going up to one who completed 40 years of service.
I think most of us think of “city hall” as faceless workers who carry out the duties that keep the city running. But now that I’ve had a chance to see them work up close and personal, they are far from faceless, and I would argue that we are fortunate to have such a dedicated group of professionals. Keeping a city afloat within a limited budget is not without challenge. Our city staff comes to work every day thinking how they can do things better. How they can improve the city today and 100 years into the future. It is impressive to see how much talent we have on the staff and their concern for the city. Everyone knows we can always do better, but the good news is we will, because we have the foundation of talent working for the city already! Semper Fi, Mac, Paul P. McNamara, Mayor of Escondido

anniversary of the Friends of the Valley Center Library. The event, an annual meeting with entertainment, will be held on Saturday, April 27, at 1:30pm in the Library Community Room. The event is free and open to the public. A musical duo, which has been called "California's premier keyboard-vocal artists", will perform songs from the 1970's to mark the era when the all-volunteer library support group was organized. The period has often been labeled "the disco years."
Friends president Marian Klein, who has led the organization for the past seven years, recalled the time four decades ago when 27 local residents gathered in a store-front library to organize what has become the library's primary non-profit fund-raising organization. Through membership dues and book sales, the Friends has provided monies for magazine subscriptions, furnishings and equipment, lectures, workshops for children, teens and adults, and concerts such as the April 27 event which will spotlight artists Janet Hammer and Nathan Fry who have appeared at some 150 venues as "Double Take." Fry is known for using his unique keyboard to simulate a full orchestra. It is their first appearance in Valley Center. A brief business meeting will precede the entertainment. The Library is located at 29200 Cole Grade Road. For more infor-

Making Townsite More Walkable
About a year ago, we held a Community Workshops to present information on making Townsite Drive and W. Los Angeles Drives a safer and more walkable neighborhood corridor.
This input was used to create a guidance for the priorities/actions needed to improve traffic safety and walkability throughout this corridor. I am pleased to report the City has received a $4 million grant to build sidewalks, traffic circles, bike lanes and crosswalks on Townsite and W. Los Angeles Drives. The infrastructure project is located along the entire length of Townsite Drive, W. Los Angeles drive between N. Santa Fe Avenue and Waxwing Drive and N. Santa Fe between California Avenue and Bobier Drive.
The grant funds will be used for the Townsite Drive "Complete Street" project and will also be used to construct curb extensions, high visibility crosswalks, green bike lane extensions through intersections and two midblock pedestrian traffic signals on N. Santa Fe Avenue. The design is in the planning stages. The public should call the Engineering Department at 760.639.6111 for more information.
Oceanside • Mayor Peter Weiss
Oceanside’s Zero Waste Schools Program
Oceanside’s Zero Waste Schools Program is near complete with implementation activities currently occurring at the district’s last three schools: Garrison Elementary, San Luis Rey Elementary, and North Terrace K-8. Since the adoption of the City’s Zero Waste Resolution and Zero Waste Strategic Resource Management Plan, the City’s Green Oceanside team has worked with each and every school in the Oceanside Unified School District to achieve at minimum a 50-75% recycling rate. The program has realized cost savings for the school district through reduced disposal costs, increased diversion rates on all campuses, has led to the complete elimination of polystyrene foam food trays at schools, and has further empowered student leaders and staff to make significant changes for sustainability and zero waste within their daily lives at home, work, and at school. mation, call 760.749.1305.

The San Marcos Spring Festival and Street Fair is back
“Happy days are here again.” For the past two years the San Marcos Chamber has been in a rebuilding mode following a few years of sub-par management.
One significant sign of this resurgence is the sold out San Marcos 2019 Spring Street Fair this Sunday April 7th.The Street Fair fills up Via Vera Cruz from San Marcos Blvd to just past Linda Vista with nearly two hundred and fifty vender booths, kiddy rides, playland and lots of fun things to do and eat.

The Computer Factory will be back at the “Fair” after a five year absence. We will be featuring some of our “refurb” desk top, notebook and All in One PCs. We’ll be in the booth to help you figure out what configuration best fits your home or business need. We’ll also be able to provide a detailed specification and cost for your next PC Windows 7 or 10. Along with each estimate we’ll give you a $25 coupon good on the purchase of a PC or labor charge. We’ll also provide a $25 discount coupon for any service estimate provided at the Fair including clean-up, reformat, data transfers etc. We won’t be selling PCs at The Fair but you will be able to order one for pick it up at our store any time after Monday April 8th.
We will be selling only one item at the “Fair”. We call them “finger pinchers.” We salvaged powerful “rare earth” magnets recovered from scrapped hard drives. We matched them in sets of two, then painted and bagged them. They sell for $5 a set. If you want to know why they are called “finger pinchers” we’ll be happy to show you. Rumor has it that the
some southern folks call them “Baby Sitters.” These magnets are so strong that redneck parents have been known to save the cost of a babysitter by sticking their kids on the refrigerator when they go for a date night at the local honkey-tonk. The San Marcos Street Fair is back on track. With the exception of our almost annual Indian summer brush fire, it’s San Marcos’ largest and most exciting community event. You don’t want to miss it so please stop by The Computer Factory’s “Refurberville” and say hello.
We’ll be at our booth to discuss the impact of upgrades like increasing RAM, faster CPUs, better graphics and SSDs (Solid State Drives) and how they affect your particular usage patterns and applications.

DAR Guest Speaker Gave History of Madonna of the Trails Monuments - The Santa Margarita Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR), had Jill Belanger as a guest speaker at a recent chapter meeting. Mrs. Belanger spoke about the history of the Madonna of the Trails monuments. The statues, dedicated to the spirit of pioneer women, were designed by noted sculptor August Leimbach. The Madonna in Upland, California, is the westernmost of twelve situated along the National Old Trails Road. She is ten foot tall, stands on a six foot pedestal, on a two foot platform, a total of eighteen feet in all. The Upland Madonna stands at the intersections of Euclid and Foothill Blvd. The San Antonio Chapter NSDAR monitors the condition and cares for the statue. The City of Upland cares for the landscaping surrounding it. Mrs. Belanger was presented with a certificate by First Vice Regent Laura Horn and thanks from chap-
‘millennial,” Derek Rheinhart (pronounced Deeee Wreck), will be available in our booth to communicate with “gamers” and other social misfits (please don’t piss him off).
