Being a home-grown Californian can be a most remarkable odyssey. And growing up in San Diego was like hitting the lottery in life. Where else can you surf, snow ski, or enjoy adrenalin-charged dune-buggy rides in hot desert climate – all in the same afternoon? That extreme polarity of climate – in the same day -- is a very rare boast that San Diego County can lay claim to. As a California boy, I skateboarded almost before I could run; I snorkeled (skin dived) off the world-famous La Jolla cove, and even excelled in playing tennis.
As a proud San Diegan, it simply amazes me at just how many famous people were born right here in San Diego County. The ledger of famous San Diegans is overwhelming in its diversity and scope. The number of famous people born and spread out across these United States is one thing, but the cluster of such luminaries that claim San Diego County as their birthplace is, well, intoxicating to ponder. It makes my head swim.
Frederick W. Sturckow, famed NASA astronaut, veteran of four Space Shuttle missions and on record as one of only two humans to visit the International Space Station four times, is originally from La Mesa, California. Famed actor and director, Robert Duvall, a seventime Academy Award nominee, and most notable for his Lonesome Dove mini-series, was born in San Diego. So was towering Oscar-winning movie legend, Gregory Peck (1916-2003), who was named by the American Film Institute as among “The Greatest Male Stars of Classic Hollywood Cinema,” in 1999, ranking No. 12, topping countless thousands of other immortals of the silver screen, was born in La Jolla, California. Arguably, the greatest baseball player of all-time, Ted Williams, nicknamed “The Splendid Splinter” and “The Greatest Hitter Who Ever Lived,” was carried home from the hospital as an infant, right here in San Diego. In music, the music group Blink-182, originated out of Poway, California, in 1992. They are truly international in their rabid fan base, having sold well over 35 million albums worldwide and moving The New York Times in 2011 to assert, “No punk band of the 1990s has been more influential than Blink-182.” Mighty powerful praise coming from one of the world’s most powerful newspapers, 3,000 miles away in New York; praise that has been echoed by other media giants from as far away as Japan, England, and Germany. Popular music legend, Stephen Bishop, also hails from San Diego, having attended Crawford High School here. Golfing greats Billy Gasper, one of the most prolific tournament champions on the PGA Tour, as well as Phil Mickelson, who swung his golf club in garnering five major championships including three Masters titles, the PGA

Championship, and the 2013 British Open, are both native San Diegans. And aside from astronauts, actors, athletes, and singers, San Diego has been a lush garden for producing some of the most beautiful women in the world, born and bred right here on San Diego County soil. Playboy Magazine’s “Playmate of the Month” heartthrob, Arlene Baxter, who became one of the most popular models for Victoria’s Secret and Saks Fifth Avenue, made her original debut at Oceanside, California, the place of her birth. And drop-dead gorgeous actress, Cameron Diaz, was born in San Diego 43 years ago, in 1972. I remember when my friends and I first saw Cameron Diaz in the 1994 movie, “The Mask,” starring Jim Carrey. I had to take cold showers for a week. And when my Irish-Catholic friend, Seamus, first saw her on the
movie screen, he thought he was having a religious experience. Cameron Diaz, the blond bombshell, as of 2015 grossed over $3-billion as a movie star, worldwide, making her the highest-grossing U.S. domestic box office actress! The list of famous people born in San Diego County is eclectic, even embracing the great Jimmie Johnson, six-time NASCAR Sprint Series Champion. Johnson is a product of El Cajon. My only claim to fame is that I think I once passed Jimmie Johnson on the freeway. (Hmm, maybe not.) But aside from NASCAR great, Jimmie Johnson, El Cajon would see other megastars emerge from their soil, including multi-Olympic Gold Medalist, Greg Louganis, famed diver who miraculously transformed water into gold at the 1984 and 1988 Olympic Games, stunning a planet’s
inhabitants on global television. After making a worldwide splash before an international viewing audience, the El Cajon native received additional honors in the United States as the most outstanding athlete. Mayim Bialik, from San Diego, stars on the nation’s top-rated comedy series, “The Big Bang Theory,” where she plays hilarious Amy Farrah Fowler. The CBS star is a four-time nominee for the Emmy Award (television’s highest accolade) for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series. The native San Diegan has also won the Critic’s Choice Television Award for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series. Many do not know that San Diego’s Mayim Bialik who portrays the comedic role of neuroscientist, Amy Farrah Fowler is, in real life, a neurosci-

entist! Dr. Bialik earned her doctorate in neuroscience in 2007. What a San Diego success story! The 40-year-old CBS megastar is not only funny – she’s a damned smart scientist as well!
Speaking of funny, one of the funniest comedians in the United States right now, was born on July 15, 1996, in San Diego under the name of Gabriel J. Iglecias. Better known across America as “Fluffy” (in “The Fluffy Movie”), Iglesias has received Congressional Recognition from congress and his concerts hailed by newspapers as “One of the all-time funniest comedy package tours.” The native son of San Diego tipped the scales at over 445lbs, forcing him to diet. The mammothsized comic quipped, “Got an offer to do my next special in 3-D. Sounds cool but do you really want me coming into your house?”
From scientists, sports immortals, movie stars, singers, super models, race-car champions, top TV-sitcom celebrities, astronauts, musicians, comedians, San Diego County has given birth to the greatest diversity of talent, skill, beauty, science, and more, all from one geographical spot, which we San Diegans call “Home Sweet Home.” Will this trend continue? Can this trend continue? Social scientists who find San Diego’s Metropolitan region fascinating, tend to think so. The rationalization for this is yet unknown, but it appears that San Diego will continue to generate homegrown paradigmatic individuals for its bright future. The likes of promising individuals are already making their emergence, perhaps the stars of tomorrow in vastly different fields. Young singing sensation, Jessica Sanchez, originally from Chula Vista, California, daz-
Give Us This Day Our Daily Chuckle This week, a compendium of wit, wisdom and neat stuff you can tell at parties. Enjoy! MENSA CONVENTION
There was a Mensa Convention in San Francisco recently. Mensa, as you probably know, is a national organization for people who have an IQ of 140 or higher.
Several of the Mensa members went out for lunch at a local café. When they sat down, one of them discovered that their salt shaker contained pepper, and their pepper shaker was full of salt. How could they swap the contents of the two bottles without spilling any, and using only the implements at hand? Clearly, this was a job for Mensa minds. The group debated the problem and presented ideas, and finally came up with a brilliant solution involving a napkin, a straw, and an empty saucer.
They called the waitress over, ready to dazzle her with their solution."Ma'am," they said, "we
zled American Idol judges during their 11th season, and mesmerized viewers across the United States of America. The 20-year-old songbird is currently signed to 19 Recordings and Interscope Records. She is, without question, one of the greatest vocal giants ever to emerge out of San Diego County. Escondido’s own, Sophia Brock, is a powerful example of sprouting talent gathering in the wings, waiting to take center stage in San Diego County’s bright future. Brock’s young genius is quickly surfacing and already attracting widespread interest in the medical field, particularly in the health-sciences community. Brock’s growing interest and expertise is, perhaps, the greatest possible universal goal of all humankind: human health, well-being, and long life. Without these essentials, all else in our “bucket list” is rendered useless. Sophia Brock’s star is on the rise and you read it first, right here. Raised as a little girl in Escondido, Brock graduated from Orange Glen High School, and is now preparing to become a university graduate with impressive cum laude honors. A media colleague recently told me that he can envision a TV-reality show on Sophia Brock (now a resident of Encinitas) in the future. Though currently a university grad-student (with undergraduate degree honors) in the medical field, Brock is already an accomplished orthotech/medical assistant who has already changed countless lives with her clinical orthopedic skills and unique talents at a prestigious UCSD medical facility. And she hasn’t even hit her stride yet. Sophia Brock’s recent remark to print media is a sobering one, “In the era of reform, health and healthcare are more important than ever. The idea is to shift our focus in medicine and society from treatment to prevention.” Keep an eye on Sophia Brock, her star is still ascending.
In addition to those emerging San Diego stars of the future, there is also a staggering proportion of world-renowned figures who paid San Diego the supreme compliment of wanting to live here and become San Diego County residents. Their reasoning being -- if you weren’t born in San Diego County the next best bet is to move here, and they did, and still are. Business tycoons, corporate CEOs, oil rich Saudi princes (or emirates), and a plethora of movie stars chose to relocate here. And even the world’s richest man, Bill Gates (now worth $87.4 billion), recently purchased an $18-million estate at the palm-treearrayed Rancho Paseanna (Rancho Santa Fe), in San Diego County, his favorite home among his collection.
couldn't help but notice that the pepper shaker contains salt and the salt shaker has pepper." But before they could finish, the waitress interrupted. "Oh, sorry about that." She leaned over the table, unscrewed the caps of both bottles and switched them.
In November, if there is no change in government, we'll all have to find a good vet.
There was dead silence at the Mensa table. Kind of reminds you Washington, D.C., doesn't it?
Two patients limp into two different doctors' offices with the same complaint: Both have trouble walking and may require hip surgery. Patient 1 is examined within the hour, is x-rayed the same day, and has a time booked for surgery the following week. Patient 2 sees his family doctor after waiting 3 weeks for an appointment, then waits 8 weeks to see a specialist, then gets an x-ray, which isn't reviewed for another week, and finally has his surgery scheduled for 6 months from then, pending the review board's decision on his age and remaining value to society. Why the different treatment for the two patients?
The FIRST is a Golden Retriever taken to a vet.
The SECOND is a Senior Citizen on ObamaCare.
And if all of this were not enough, one of the highest concentrations of ‘brain power’ resides right here, in our own back yard of San Diego County! If extraterrestrial intelligence should ever decide to visit one particular geographical spot on this third planet from the sun, they should make San Diego County a priority stop on their tour of planet Earth.
Of the top 30 countries (countries, not counties) of the world, today, there is a strange curiosity in the disproportionate gathering of human intellect that occupies this piece of real estate we know as San Diego County. Within these top 30 countries, there is a scattering of genius, comprising Nobel Prize winners, 644 to be precise. The country of France is accredited for having had 61 Nobel Prize winners, Germany has produced 105, the United Kingdom 125, and a whopping 353 from the United States. On American soil, Princeton University boasts an amazing history of 12 Nobel Prize winners. Jumping up the ledger, Stanford University has a lineage of 17 Nobel laureates. MIT (Massachusetts

THIS IS A FRIGHTENING STATISTIC, PROBABLY ONE OF THE MOST WORRYSOME IN RECENT YEARS: 25% of the women in this country are on medication for mental illness. That's scary………..
It means 75% are running around untreated! Texting Codes For Seniors...

Institute of Technology) shades Stanford with having had 18, and Harvard has a lion’s share of having produced 32 Nobel Prize winners. Harvard would, most certainly, appear to have the supreme bragging rights at 32 Nobel laureates in their university’s history. And they might well have – except for the fact that we haven’t yet glanced in the direction of the west, more specifically at UCSD (University of California San Diego), located in La Jolla. International eyes fall in the direction of La Jolla’s most prestigious higher seat of learning at UCSD, which lays claim to having had 36 Nobel Prize winners, a mother lode of genius which towers as the mightiest gathering of human intellect, produced and settled, in one specific location in our solar system!
Big question: what makes all these magnificent, God-given geniuses -- the greatest gathering of human intelligence on Earth -- the supreme desire to come here, work here and, in essence, become residents of San Diego County? This is a staggering question which causes weakness behind the knees. This most southern (major) county of California seems to be a clarion, calling forth a brain trust seldom seen before in the sweep of human history. For example, during the 1990s, Dr. Gerald Edelman, received the 1972 Nobel Prize in Stockholm, Sweden, for his research in physiology/medicine. Like a first-round NFL draft choice, every major university in America clamored in attempting to entice him to take up residence at their respective university. The esteemed Dr. Edelman had America’s top universities - with their collective tongues hanging out -- falling over themselves, trying to

‘draft’ him. MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) enticed him, to no avail. As did Princeton University, where Albert Einstein once took up residence. Princeton also came up empty-handed. Even world-renowned UC Berkley took its best shot to win-over the great scientist. But, they also would know failure. In the Nobel Laureates own words, Dr. Gerald Edelman said, “I went back to my job, and guess what? Everybody (on the research team) wanted to go to La Jolla (UCSD).” He would later comment on his new residence at UCSD in La Jolla, which remains a virtual magnet for the greatest minds of the universe. The Nobel laureate’s words were short and direct, “La Jolla (UCSD) is a big factor in recruitment.” Every stellar scientist dreams of coming here, hands down.
And so the trend continues to this day. Others weighed in with the same sentiment. Greg Lemke, professor of molecular neurobiology at Salk, said that scientists are attracted like moths to a flame when they think of UCSD in San Diego County, and its legendary research, as well as its “collaborative possibilities” which it makes available: “the best variety of institutions, all strung closely together.” In addition to collaborating with the world’s greatest fellow scientists, there are other perks that continue to lure the greatest minds to La Jolla’s famed coastline. For example, Dr. Kary Mullis, winner of the 1993 Nobel Prize in chemistry, rented an apartment closer to Windansea Beach so that he could practice his two greatest passions: science research and surfing! It is no exaggeration, in the least, to say that UCSD at La Jolla is an almost mythical fountain of knowledge, so powerful and so overwhelming, that it seems to cast a magic spell over the world’s leading scientists. To the point where its collection of scientists at La Jolla, California, often never wish to leave its thriving community, a nirvana found on Earth. Exaggeration? Listen to the scientists, themselves, in their own words: “One of our major problems with post-doctorates is convincing them to leave when it’s time to move on. La Jolla is very comfortable,” Dr. Lemke confesses. This is the over-all consensus.

DR. JONAS SALK. I wish to anchor this storyline by focusing, in depth, on one of the greatest residents of San Diego County, Dr. Jonas Salk (19141995) who lived and died in the place of his dreams: La Jolla, California. He is a great reminder of what humankind can achieve during the limited years we are given here on Earth. He was one of the world’s most amazing human beings, and certainly one of history’s most critically-important in regards to global humanity, and in the preservation of our species on this orbiting planet. His name was Dr. Jonas Salk, and he was no Californian, by any stretch of the imagination.
He was born in New York City, on October 28, 1914, to Russian-Jewish parents. Dr. Jonas Salk captured world headlines, as well as the world’s gratitude, when he discovered a cure for polio at the University of Pittsburgh. His findings would prove crucial in human history. In 1950, he had an early version of his polio vaccine and by 1953 Salk was ready to announce his findings to a fear-struck world. It came none too soon because 1952 was an epidemic year with 58,000 new polio cases reported, causing near-panic throughout the United States. 1954 saw two million American school children vaccinated in clinical trials, then, the milestone year in medical history – April of 1955 saw a nationwide inoculation campaign. Salk did what every living human being had prayed for: he found a cure for the dreaded polio disease, a scourge which panicked a global population that was threatened with permanent paralysis and death. Even the nation’s President of the United States, Franklin D. Roosevelt, fell victim to the dreaded polio disease at age 39, giving him permanent paralysis from the waist down.
It is hard for today’s generation to truly understand the fear of polio. American historian, William O’Neill put it in words, “Paralytic poliomyelitis (its formal name) was, if not the most serious, easily the most frightening public health problem of the postwar era.” History would record the terror it brought to parents in fearing for their young children, as well as for themselves. Historian O’Neill elaborates, “The public reaction was to a plague. Citizens

Soroptimists to Host Annual Salad Luncheon Fundraiser – Thursday, April 14, from 11:30am-1:30pm, is the date and time for the annual Salad Luncheon fundraiser of the Soroptimist international of Vista and North County Inland. The event will be held at the Grace Church, 1450 E. Vista Way, Vista. Soroptimists and local dignitaries, City Council members and Vista Fire Department personnel will don aprons and serve up a variety of salads prepared by Club members and local restaurants.
of urban areas were to be terrified every summer when this frightful visitor returned.” According to fellow polio-researcher, Dr. Robert Olson, “In some parts of the country, concern assumed almost the dimensions of panic.” As a consequence, “Scientists were in a frantic race to find a cure.” Sadly, small children were struck down most, their parents terrified to the point of death at seeing their little ones suddenly claimed by a most unmerciful disease. Andrew Wyeth, famed visual artist was crushed at seeing these innocents hit with the polio virus, an image that would leave lifelong emotional scars for him. One punishing moment for him was seeing a certain Christina Olson, “Crawling crab-like across the field outside her kitchen door.” He would later confess that it would haunt him relentlessly, throughout his life.
The emergence of Dr. Jonas Salk was an answer to a collective prayer from an agonizing world of frightened inhabitants. As historians recorded, “In 1954, when polio was destroying more American children than any other communicable disease, his vaccine was ready for field testing.” History views Dr. Jonas Salk in almost mythical proportions, and for good reason: his miracle-on-earth achievement – discovering a cure for the dreaded polio virus. He was recognized through all timezones around the planet. Various countries would nod in his direction, expressing their acknowledgement of being spared a most crippling existence and death. Around the world, the official news prompted an immediate international rush to vaccinate. Medical historian, Debbie Bookchin, writes “Canada, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, West Germany, the Netherlands, Switzerland, and Belgium all announced plans to either immediately begin polio immunization campaigns using Salk’s vaccine or to gear up to quickly do so. Overnight, Salk had become an international hero and a household name. His vaccine was a modern medical miracle.” He was now a world celebrity. Even movie stars and other noted scientists were transformed into enthused little children at meeting him, big-eyed and overwhelmed. How could they not? After all, Salk had given them life, itself. People stood in awe of his presence, often even giddy, sometimes unable to restrain their emotions. Author, Jon Cohen cited, “Jonas Salk made scientists and

journalists alike go goofy.” In the public’s eye, he had assumed a mystical, superstar aura and status. Airplane pilots would announce that he was onboard and passengers would suddenly burst into applause. As the New York Times reported, “Hotels routinely would upgrade him into their penthouse suites. A meal at a restaurant inevitably meant an interruption from an admirer, and scientists approached him, with drop-jawed wonder as though some of the stardust might rub off.” Sadly, however, Jonas Salk hated the ensuing limelight. The New York Times wrote, “At 40, the once obscure scientist was lifted from his laboratory almost to the level of a folk hero.” When President Dwight D. Eisenhower met him in person, on April 22, 1955, the president was awestruck at actually seeing him – standing in the flesh before him. Eisenhower saluted him, and called him, “Dr. Salk, the benefactor of mankind.” But Salk was not one to bask in the bright sunlight of recognition. Salk went so far as to state that such personal publicity is inappropriate for a scientist. Applause and idolization made him feel ill at ease, uncomfortable and craving for his former anonymity. For the remainder of his life, his wish to remain in the shadows would be denied him.
He was the most curious of humans: he asked for nothing gratuitous in exchange for saving the world from one of history’s most terrifying illnesses. He was cut from a different bolt; he was an innocent amongst entrepreneurial wolves and bureaucratic red tape. For example, he committed the supreme sin in all of science. Or so it was, initially, thought. A most mind-boggling secret was about to be exposed on Dr. Jonas Salk. Something so outlandish, especially by today’s criteria, that it appears fictional -- yet, it is historical fact. On April 12, 1955, legendary CBS newscaster, Edward R. Murrow, sat smoking a cigarette and dropped the heavyweight question upon Dr. Jonas Salk’s shoulder: “Who owns the patent (to the polio vaccine)?” In reply, Dr. Salk pronounced words that would normally be reserved for the Biblical saints out of the Old Testament, but words that were critiqued as foolish, even stupid, by certain quarters of medicine’s greedy entrepreneurial giants.

The Paper • Page 4 • April 7, 2016 Near Drowning at Cape Rey Carlsbad
On Thursday, March 31 at 5:17 p.m. the City of Carlsbad Police Department received a 911 call regarding a CPR in progress at Cape Rey Carlsbad hotel. Carlsbad Police Officers responded with the City of Carlsbad Fire Department. A five year old female had been found unresponsive underwater at the bottom of the hotel pool and was removed from the pool by a family friend. Two hotel employees evaluated the juvenile and found that she was not breathing and did not have a pulse. The employees initiated CPR and were able to revive the juvenile. Carlsbad Police and Fire personnel arrived and found the juvenile semiconscious and crying. Carlsbad Fire Department Medics treated the juvenile and transported her to Children’s Hospital for further medical treatment. Minor Injury Traffic Collision into a Residence
On Saturday, Apr. 2nd, at 5:43 a.m., officers from the Carlsbad Police Department responded to the report of a vehicle that just collided into a residence in the 2800 block of Unicornio St. Officers found that a 2006 Ford F-150 had been travelling westbound on Unicornio St. when it struck a parked vehicle on the south curb line and then continued into an attached townhome, penetrating the exterior wall of the unit. The vehicle came to rest inside the family room
area of the residence. The Carlsbad Fire Department responded to the scene to provide medical treatment and to assess the damage to the residence. The Building Inspector also responded to the scene to assess damages.
The driver and only occupant of the 2006 Ford F-150 has been identified as a 20-year-old male from Carlsbad. He sustained minor injuries and was released at the scene.
The residence was evacuated and none of the occupants were injured. The Red Cross was contacted to provide assistance to the residents. Drug and/or Alcohol intoxication is not suspected to be involved in the collision. Carlsbad City Council Asked to Ban Retail Stores that Sell “Puppy Mill” Animals
A large crowd is anticipated on April 12th when the Carlsbad City Council reviews proposed legislation that would ban the selling of dogs or cats by retail stores unless they are from recognized shelters or rescue organizations.
This proposed legislation is part of a strong national surge to end the “puppy mill” organizations that allegedly breed dogs time after time and turn out pups for sale in the retail market. City after city has enacted such legislation, San Diego, San Marcos, Chula Vista, cities through California and the nation. Escondido. It was bound to be a major tourist attraction.
Not only did major investors back it but local officials were on board, particularly Hizzoner, Sam Abed.
I trust we all got by April Fool’s with having a minimum of pranks pulled on us. We, being a responsible news medium would never think of pulling an April Fool’s Day prank.
“We’ve had two pups purchased from Carlsbad Pets in Carlsbad that had to be euthanized because of health issues. Reputable breeders won’t sell their dogs to pet stores. The AKC Breeder Code of Ethics states that breeders must agree never to sell their puppies to stores.” Davies points out that many retail pet supply stores operate profitably withou selling puppy mill animals. She and her organization(s) have indicated they stand ready to supply pet stores with rescue animals that have been vetted and properly cared for. “It could be a win-win for everybody,” she says. “All we need is for Carlsbad to issue the ban.” Past Copies of The Paper We are pleased that so many of you want to read more cover stories from The Paper!

Come to think of it, we did publish a cover story a few years back that did get the attention of many readers in North San Diego County.
Linda Davies, an activist in the movement to ban puppy mills and their retail outlets, says: “Although we don't have a puppy mill in Carlsbad, the offspring of puppy mill dogs, living in unforgivable conditions, are currently being sold in Carlsbad to unsuspecting consumers.”
(In fact, at the end of the week, Mayor Sam requested 25 copies of the issue). But that was the only time we did something like that. Except . . .

I am very sorry to hear that John Smylie, Attorney at Law passed away.
He was an excellent Lawyer. I know this from personal experience. About 15 years ago, I represented a defendant that John Smylie’s client had sued. It was a knock down drag out fight. John did an excellent job in representing his client. After all the battles, the matter was resolved. But in the process I came to gain great respect for John. /s/Anthony Abbott, Attorney at Law San Marcos, CA.

Nonetheless, Salk would reply, “No one owns the patent.” Murrow was reduced to momentary stunned silence. No such charity could exist in contemporary times – especially, not of this scope and magnitude. Salk seemed to notice the shock that his answer elicited so he proceeded to explain, “No one owns the patent. Well, the people, I would say.” Murrow still seemed beside himself, so Salk took up the slack, “There is no patent. Could you patent the sun?” As recorded by the press, Salk never patented the vaccine or earned any money from discovering the cure for polio, preferring his vaccine to be distributed without delay, as quickly and as widely as possible to save human lives.
For those financial experts reading this, the business “bottom line” answer here is: Salk could have made $7-billion if he had fought to have the vaccine patented. Today, there is an over-crowding of professional jealousy in all professions -politics is not the only varmint. Science and scientists are not immune to having this seedy side, the soft underbelly, and the dark smoke-filled backrooms where pharmaceutical deals are wielded; a room sometimes full of internal fighting and positioning for grants, recognition, and so on. Even today, there are some Salk detractors who claim in science journals that Jonas Salk did not patent his miracle cure simply because it was “not patentable” at the time. The fact remains open that Salk’s polio vaccine very well might have been patented with pursued legal litigation on Salk’s side. Documented records reveal that Salk’s legal consultants investigated and found that Salk’s vaccine could have been patented. Yet, despite these urgings
from legal consultants to do so, Salk wished no part of it. As a consequence, lawyers for his research foundation did not pursue his legal patent rights simply because of Salk’s reluctance and, finally, his unwilling compliance to proceed on these ostensible rights.
One of Salk’s most bitter and long-lasting critics was Polish-born virologists, Albert Sabin, who competed with Salk in developing a polio vaccine first. Scholars would say Sabin’s professional dark side took hold when he attempted to hurt Salk with personal diatribes, attacking his polio vaccine program by referring to it as “dangerous” to human lives. Many attest that it was good fortune that professional jealousy did not derail one of the world’s most incredible miracle discoveries. Despite this resentment, Dr. Albert Sabin, remains a most distinguished scientist and polio pioneer in his own right. Sabin’s vaccine would, in fact, replace Salk’s vaccine, as the prime defense against polio in this country. But by then, Jonas Salk’s vaccine had already reduced polio significantly, leaving only a “clean-up” job for a resentful Sabin. The relatively late, second-place appearance of Dr. Albert Sabin’s vaccine left an obvious professional jealousy against Jonas Salk’s pioneering accomplishment. Sabin never relinquished his feelings against his rival, Salk. Hot embers of resentment persisted down through the decades. In 1984, Sabin declared at age 84, that Salk was “a mere kitchen chemist.” Sabin had gone so far as to state, “Salk didn’t discover anything,” a surprising blanket statement nullifying all of Salk’s work in its totality, a statement considered extremely questionable, and bordering hysteria, in the face of history and most medical historians. Dr. Salk attributed such remarks from Sabin as professional jealousy, quietly stating in his defense, “Albert Sabin was out for me from the very beginning.”
Throughout his life, Salk was often challenged by colleagues which added to the sheer exhaustion of trying to chase down a most elusive disease. Every case of polio that Salk saw, especially in crippling little children, greatly diminished him. A colleague of Salk once noted, “That boy (Jonas Salk) really suffers when he sees a paralytic case. You look at him and you see him thinking ‘My God, this can be prevented.’” Nonetheless, it was a tortuous path to walk. At one point, he almost gave up, altogether, on his viral research. Then one afternoon, he saw something that steeled his inner constitution. One sunny day, he sat tired and heavy, on a park bench. From his vantage point, he saw children playing. Small, delicate, innocent little ones frolicking in the bright sunlight, laughing, jumping, running full-speed and full of joy. Then he imagined them all, suddenly crippled and no longer able to walk, run or laugh as he saw them then. His scientific mind imagined their tiny bodies paralyzed, and their legs heavy with steal braces.
When Salk finally stood up, to his full height from the park bench he realized that he had glimpsed the future, a possible future without his presence in it. He would later record his inner-most thoughts, “I have had dreams and I have had nightmares, but I have conquered my nightmares because of my dreams.” Salk was on his way to meet destiny. He would rendezvous with providence which would change the world at large, and keep the little ones he saw in the park that one day, forever safe from a most vicious enemy that stalked them. It was nearly 122 years ago, today, when a mysterious malady first struck at Rutland, Vermont, during the summer of 1894. It disproportionately struck small children, but its long arm was indiscriminate and claimed adults, as well. In various polls during the 1940s
and 1950s, the only thing that Americans feared more than polio, was nuclear war. Even though cancer was a bigger killer, there was no contagious disease in the annals of medicine during that time, like polio. In 1952, polio killed more children in America than any other communicable disease. As Pulitzer Prize winner, David M. Oshinksy, states, “Polio inspired such fear because it struck without warning and researchers were unsure how it spread from person to person.” (“Polio: An American Story,” 2005 by David M. Oshinksy.) Polio was a “medical oddity,” that baffled scientists, ruthlessly. How the virus was spread was elusive and taunting, keeping its deadly secrets which were the keys to unraveling its mysterious ways in claiming its victims. Finally, it was discovered that the polio virus was spread by the transmission of fecal matter and secretions of the nose and throat. It entered the body, orally, then it attacked the intestines, eventually traveling its deadly route to the human brain or spinal cord.
It was all history now. In the rearview mirror of medical science, there is no doubt that Dr. Jonas Salk’s earlier discovery of a polio cure helped save millions of people across the globe. In light of such an accomplishment, Salk was the medical savior for a world that took him to its bosom. On May 6, 1985, President Ronald Reagan proclaimed “Jonas Salk Day,” with this proclamation: “Even before another successful vaccine was discovered (by Dr. Albert Sabin), Dr. Jonas Salk’s discovery had already reduced polio and its effects by 97 percent. The Salk vaccine virtually wiped polio from the face of the Earth.” Dr. Jonas Salk died in La Jolla,

California, on June 23, 1995. Church bells rang out the news, and grateful people chanted “We love you, Salk!” from his neighborhood streets. Other expressions of love were emblazoned in large letters on placards that San Diegans carried. Most faces were wet with tears. Dr. Jonas Salk loved living in La Jolla. The Salk Institute for Biological Studies opened in 1963, another dream come true. Regarding La Jolla, the jewel by the Pacific, Salk said he would often daydream that such a place existed before he actually found it, “I thought how nice it would be if a place like this existed and I was invited to work there.”
Salk never gave up trying to help ease the suffering of life here on Earth. His final years were spent searching for a vaccine to eradicate the deadly AIDS virus, before death finally interrupted him at age 80.
The legacy which Jonas Salk left us is unparalleled. Salk preferred prevention over treatment for human life. San Diego’s brilliant health-science practitioner, Sophia Brock, said it best, “The genius of Salk is what we as healthcare leaders should follow. In 1952 he produced the polio vaccine which changed the face of medicine in the height of its devastation. This is a perfect example of how focus was shifted from treatment of this viral disease to prevention.” Dr. Jonas Salk is no longer with us, but his words still speak to us today, encouraging us along life’s path: “There is hope in dreams, imagination, and in the courage of those who wish to make those dreams a reality.” Salk lived to see his three fondest dreams come true: he found a cure for polio, he saw the creation of his Salk Institute for Biological Studies, and he found his personal paradise here on Earth -- to live, work, and spend his final years. Right here, in San Diego County.

utilities, and only law enforcement has guns. And believe it or not, such a place does indeed already exist: It's called Prison." Sheriff Joe Arpaio Maricopa County, Arizona
A father put his 3 year old daughter to bed, told her a story and listened to her prayers which ended by saying, "God bless Mommy, God bless Daddy, God bless Grandma, and good-bye Grandpa." The father asked, "Why did you say good-bye Grandpa?"
He practically went into shock. He couldn't sleep all night and got up at the crack of dawn to go to his office.
He was nervous as a cat all day, had lunch and watched the clock. He figured if he could get by until midnight he would be okay. He felt safe in the office, so instead of going home at the end of the day he stayed there, drinking coffee, looking at his watch and jumping at every sound. Finally midnight arrived; he breathed a sigh of relief and went home.
When he got home his wife said, "I've never seen you work so late. What's the matter?" He said, "I don't want to talk about it, I've just spent the worst day of my life."
The little girl said, "I don't know daddy, it just seemed like the thing to do."
She said, "You think you had a bad day, you'll never believe what happened to me. This morning my golf pro dropped dead in the middle of my lesson!"
A few months later the father put the girl to bed and listened to her prayers which went like this, "God bless Mommy, God Bless Daddy and good-bye Grandma."
There was once a very inspirational priest, but he had a tremendous weakness for golf. Every chance he could get, he could be found on the golf course swinging away. It was an obsession for him.
The next day grandpa died. The father thought it was a strange coincidence.
The next day the grandmother died.
"Holy crap," thought the father, "this kid is in contact with the other side." Several weeks later when the girl was going to bed, the dad heard her say, "God bless Mommy and good-bye Daddy."
Protecting Lost and Abandoned Animals
After over 70 years of debate, I have introduced legislation that, for the first time under California statute, will prohibit the acquisition of live animals abandoned at public or private shelters for use in laboratory research. By the 1940s several states passed “pound seizure” legislation, which required shelters to provide dogs and cats to research institutions, either directly or through “Class B” dealers which served as animal brokers. As a result, in 1966 Congress passed the Laboratory Animal Welfare Act, which attempted to stop the theft of animals from pounds and to address substandard conditions under which Class B dealers were holding them. California law currently protects animals abandoned at pet hospitals and kennels, but does not cover animals surrendered to shelters or strays picked up by animal

control. Since the core purpose of animal shelters is to care for animals in need by finding new forever homes or reuniting lost pets with their owners, shelters across the state have rejected the practice. It’s time for California law to match common practice and public expectations by outlawing pound seizure to ensure it won't occur again. Assembly Bill 2269, will ensure that animals are not taken from shelters for biological or medical research. The bill is co-authored by Assemblymember Matt Dababneh (D – Encino), and is co-sponsored by the State Humane Association and Cruelty Free International, with support of the Beagle Freedom Foundation.

Historically Speaking by Tom Morrow
America’s First Female Pulitzer Prize Winner
One of the 20th century best-known American novelists was Edith Wharton, the first female Pulitzer Prize-winning writer and was nominated for a Nobel Prize for Literature three times. Wharton combined her insider's view of America's privileged classes with a brilliant, natural wit to write humorous, incisive novels and short stories of social and psychological insight.
Edith Newbold Jones was born Jan. 24, 1862, in New York City to wealthy parents. The saying "keeping up with the Joneses" is said to refer to her father's family. After the Civil War, the Jones family traveled extensively in Europe. From 1866 to 1872, they visited France, Italy, Germany, and Spain. During

the car and, lo! my right foot was bare! I looked and looked on the floor of the car. No right sandal. I had my left sandal. It took a few seconds to realize that my sandal must have slipped off when I entered Evelyn's car at the restaurant parking lot. As Evelyn said she'd go in and get the legal documents I snarled, "don't you DARE tell them what happened!"
I was dead solid certain she would obey my command. After all, she always does. She came back out with the legal documents and handed them to me. I was reading them when someone tapped on my windshield. It was Paul Van Middlesworth, the owner of The Computer Facory. He was tapping on my windshield with a size 18 basketball sneaker . . . and a silly grin on his face. I stuck my head out the window and hollered, "I told her not to tell you!" His grin grew even larger.
We drove back to the restaurant quickly and, sure enough, there it was. My sandal. In the same parking space we had occupied. As we left San Marcos on the route home, Evelyn said, "I just
her travels, the young Edith became fluent in French, German, and Italian.
She rejected the standards of fashion and etiquette that were expected of young girls at the time, intended to enable women to marry well and to be displayed at balls and parties. Edith wanted more education than she received, so she read from her father's library and from the libraries of her father's friends.
In 1885, at age 23, she married Edward (Teddy) Robbins Wharton, who was 12 years her senior. From a well-established Boston family, he was a sportsman and a gentleman of the same social class and shared her love of travel. From the late 1880s until 1902, he suffered acute depression, and the couple ceased their extensive travel. In 1908 her husband's mental state was determined to be incurable. In the same year, she began an affair with Morton Fullerton, a journalist in whom she found an intellectual partner. She divorced Edward Wharton in 1913 after 28 years of marriage.
In addition to novels, Wharton wrote at least 85 short stories. She was also a garden designer, interior designer, and a taste-maker of her time. She wrote several design books, including her first published work.
She moved permanently to France and was preparing to vacation for the summer when World War I broke out. Though many fled Paris, she moved back to her Paris apartment and for four years was a tireless and ardent supporter of the French war effort. When the Germans invaded Belgium in the fall of 1914 and Paris was flooded with Belgian refugees, she helped to set up the American Hostels for Refugees. She collected more than $100,000 on their behalf. Wharton was a heroic worker on behalf of her adopted country. On 18 April 1916, the President of France appointed her “Chevalier of the Legion of Honor,” the country's highest award, in recognition of her ded-

I soon will have become the laughingstock of the Escondido Women's Club, my Hidden Valley Kiwanis Club, her sorority, the School District Personnel Commission . . . any and all organizations to which she belongs will soon be the recipient of the story of how "lyle can't even tell if he's got his footwear on."

ication to the war effort.
Wharton also kept up her own work during the war, continuing to write novels, short stories, and poems, as well as reporting for the New York Times. Wharton urged Americans to support the war effort and encouraged America to enter the war. She wrote the popular romantic novel, “Summer in 1916,” the war novella, “The Marne,” in 1918, and “A Son at the Front” in 1919.
“The Age of Innocence” (1920) won the 1921 Pulitzer Prize for literature, making Wharton the first woman to win the award. Wharton was friend and confidante to many gifted intellectuals of her time: Henry James, Sinclair Lewis, Jean Cocteau and André Gide were all her guests at one time or another. Theodore Roosevelt was a valued friend as well. Particularly notable was her meeting with F. Scott Fitzgerald, described by the editors of her letters as "one of the better-known failed encounters in the American literary annals.” In 1934 Wharton's autobiography “A Backward Glance” was published.
On June 1, 1937, Wharton suffered a heart attack and collapsed. She died of a stroke on Aug. 11, 1937, and was buried in the American Protestant section of Versailles cemetery, "with all the honors owed a war hero and a Chevalier of the Legion of Honor.”

a quandary as to what to do, and shortly, the urge to play golf overcame him. He called an assistant to tell him that he was sick and could not say Mass today. He packed the car, and drove three hours to a golf course where no one would recognize him. Happily, he began to play the course.
An angel above was watching the priest and was quite perturbed. She went to God and said, "Look at the priest. He should be punished.” God nodded in agreement. The priest teed up on the first hole. He swung at the ball, and it sailed effortlessly through the air and landed right in the cup three hundred and fifty yards away. Wow! A picture perfect hole in one. He was amazed and ecstatic.
The angel was shocked. She turned to God and said, “Begging Your pardon, but I thought You were going to punish him."

After the service, he starts talking to the Preacher, asking him all sorts of stupid questions, just to keep him occupied. Finally the Preacher gets annoyed and asks Mike what he's really up to.
Mike, feeling guilty, finally confesses to the Preacher..."My friend is having an affair with your wife right now, so he asked me to keep you occupied."
The Preacher smiles, puts a brotherly hand on Mike's shoulder and says, "You better hurry home. My wife died a year ago."

Dr. Greg Hurt, pictured above, is not only one of the best dentists I’ve ever known he is also a great personal friend and one of those individuals who constantly works in his community, not only taking care of his own dental patients, but also attending school on weekends to advance his education in the fine art and science of dentistry. In addition, he also teaches young, aspiring dentists as well as offering them internship opportunities in his practice.
Her notes follow:
On Saturday, February 20, 2016, I had the privilege of joining a group of volunteers from the Flood Church of San Diego, on their missionary trip to Mexico.
The Flood Church runs many missionary trips throughout the year in hopes of “serving locally and globally,” the people of poverty and underserved. On this trip, we were able to put chicken wire up and stucco on the foundation of recently built homes. The homes only had paper walls to keep out some of the cold air; however, there were many holes throughout due to the thin material. With the help of the 14 volunteers, we were able to insulate and complete two homes for the family living in them already.
He is active in the community as a philanthropist, as a volunteer worker, as someone who cares about his community and his fellow man.
That enthusiasm is catching and he is able to attract many young people who share his zest for life and giving back to the community. Such a person is young Charleen Nguyen, who works in the front office of Dr. Hurt’s San Marcos Dental Center, 162 S. Santa Fe Road, San Marcos. At Dr. Hurt’s urging she recently memorialized some of her work in “giving back” to the community.
Charleen Nguyen, at work
We will be going again in April, in hopes of finishing up more homes for this rural community.

Pastor Richard Huls, Retired DEADLINES
Deadlines! We all live with deadlines. Most of us will be working to meet the most challenging one, April 15, the State and Federal tax reporting time. Thank the Lord, we are able to avoid the penalty of the real meaning of the deadline with extensions. Originally, the deadline was a line around prisons where, if a prisoner crossed over it, he would get shot. We don’t do that anymore, at least not in this country. Yet, the principle was a good one and is used continuously in our economy and social media. For instance, this article is being written under the deadline set by our editor, Lyle Davis. Now Lyle is a nice guy, but when he has to have copy
Deadlines are very beneficial in this age of indulgence with time. For many, there is always a tomorrow. Avoiding set times for social commitments is a pastime for many, often filled with excuses and madeup stories. The sad part of not keeping our deadline or commitments is that it weakens our character and resolve to accomplish necessary tasks. Think of all the plans, time schedules, promises, and personal goals not fulfilled, because of weak and irresponsible behavior by not fulfilling deadlines.
While there may be uncontrollable circumstances that prevent us from making deadlines, there is one that we will never cheat on – that of our death. If there are calls to be made, deeds to be done, issues to be resolved, taxes to be paid, letters to be written, behavior to be changed, then set a deadline – and keep it. Imagine if you crossed that line, you could get shot. If you keep it, God will bless you with confidence, a sense of well-being, personal respect, and the respect of others.

Downtown’s Livelier Personality
As recently as five years ago, life in downtown Vista was somewhat quieter and ended around nightfall. While the downtown area is still keeping to its historic roots by day, it has taken on a much livelier personality in the evening, now that craft breweries and restaurants, and arts and entertainment are serving residents and visitors alike. Craft brew enthusiasts and diners are crowding the breweries, and families are strolling along the streets, exploring the Kites Over Vista sculptures eclectic shops, the ArtBeat gallery, and other businesses staying open later to take advantage of the foot
traffic. With the Belching Beaver Tavern & Grill opening soon on Broadway Avenue, the opening of the Flying Pig Pub & Kitchen on S. Santa Fe Avenue and the Italian restaurant, Rosati’s moving into the vacant CPK site in the Vista Village area, dining options are increasing in the downtown core. In addition, Phase 1 of the Paseo Santa Fe improvement project has been completed and a gateway arch has been installed near Main Street to mark the entrance. The City has secured grant funding to complete Phase II which continues the improvements to Terrace Drive. Construction on that phase begins in 2017.

years. “Moore’s Law” as it has become known is valid even to this day. In that same year I made a similar prediction that became known as “Nome’s folly.”
Paul & Nome Van Middlesworth, The Computer Factory
“A new PC for the Average Dude.”
In 1965 Gordon E. Moore, (cofounder of Intel), was the Director of R&D at Fairchild Semiconductor in San Jose, Ca. At the same time I was an Industrial Engineer at Belden Corporation in Richmond, Indiana. That year each of us would make an earthshaking prediction that would change lives and establish a pattern for more than fifty years. Moore’s prediction was made in an interview with a reporter from Electronics Magazine. Moore stated that technological advances in the fabrication of integrated circuits would permit doubling the density of transistors every two years. In layman’s terms that meant that the computing power would double every two Service Above Self Cont. from Page 9
however, most families together make an average of $50 a week combined! To accommodate the living cost, more than ONE FAMILY lives within the home. I saw a family of about 10-15 individuals within one home.
The streets of the neighborhood, served by Charleen Nguyen and her fellow missionaries from The Flood Church
Sadly, that is not the worst of their situation, some of these families go without electricity, clean water, refrigerator, or a telephone.
The worst part of their situation was that this community was located behind multiple cow slaughter facilities, so you could smell the stench of a combination of decay and manure. But they were still happy to be together even within such a small space and bad area. These families live without almost the basic necessi-
There are two versions of my forecast. I think I said, “Marry me and I will make you the happiest woman in the World.” She claims what I actually said was “stick with me baby and you’ll be fartin through silk.” Either way it worked out and “Nome’s Folly” is still keeping pace with “Moore’s law.” Today Moore is retired living in The Bay Area with $6 billion in the bank and we’re still working with somewhat less in the bank. In 1981 when IBM started the personal computer revolution, the heart of the PC was the Intel 20286 with 134,000 transistors. By 2000 the Pentium III had 45 million transistors and by 2010 the i7 CPU/Xeon boasted two and a quarter billion transistors. The problem was that almost no PC user needed a 2 billion transistor PC. Technology had left the average PC user in the dust. It was as if the auto industry kept increasing the horsepower and speed of cars until the family SUV had a 4000HP engine that could cruise at 800MP. Impressive but unusable.
bled up the ever increasing power of CPUs. But as the Internet came to dominate our usage patterns, CPU power, storage size and RAM requirements stabilized. Only power users like gamers, designers and graphics specialists could utilize the massive speed of the newer CPUs.
Business and home users soon realized that their 2009 Windows7 PC was every bit as capable as a brand new PC. New PC sales slumped and the repair business picked up. Manufacturers began to realize that putting the latest and greatest CPU, massive HDD storage and humungous amounts of RAM did little for most users. Today’s low and
mid range retail PCs often have CPUs that are far less powerful than those available in 2009. For example the 2007 Core2 Quad (E9750) had a speed benchmark of nearly 5000, about the same as today’s i7-4600M. Indeed the CPUs in some of the “bottom feeder” retail cheapies are actually slower than the Pentium IVs of 2005. Next week we discuss what you need to know and the questions to ask when shopping for a new PC (laptop or desktop) and how to overcome the hype, hooey and plain old balderdash of the retail PC industry. The i3, i5, i7 scams, the realities of warranties (factory and extended), bloatware exploits, new generation CPU’s and more.
Until late in the first decade of the new millennium users eagerly gob-
ties and are still happy and grateful for the little things we could give them. We merely stuccoed the framework of thir home and that meant the world to them. It broke my heart and the many volunteers to see how much they endured and were still head strong about the future. Looking at their situation, I felt ashamed of myself at what I always take for granted, such as having a private bathroom that flushes.
With this great opportunity it pushes me to really continue giving back to the community here in the states and around the world. I will continue on with these missions and volunteer trips in hopes that with my minor help, I can impact the community overall little by little. ••••• Editor’s Note: If you were moved by this story and would like to become part of the missionary team, or would like to support them financially, please contact Charleen Nguyen at the San Marcos Dental Center, 162 S.

annual Holiday Food for Fines program again was very successful. This program provides Library patrons the opportunity to clear up to $20 in fines from their account. During the collection drive, which ran through December 31st, the Library accepted both fine and non-fine related food donations, accumulating 50 crates of food weighing an estimated 1,500 pounds. Proceeds from the drive were donated to Interfaith Community Services (www.interfaithservices.org/) in Escondido which distributes food to families in need throughout North County. Interfaith’s Communications Coordinator Lauren Holt commented, “Interfaith Community Services is continually thankful to receive support from a diverse array of community groups in North County, such as the Escondido Public Library at 239 S. Kalmia. Thanks to the incredible donations resulting from their Food for Fines program, the Library will help feed the nearly 16,000 low-income community members in need that Interfaith serves each year. With 1 in 4 children in San Diego County at-risk for hunger, along with an estimated 9,000 homeless residents living without permanent shelter, the basic human need for food has never been greater.” Library programs, events, and services are free and open to the public. For more information about Food for Fines, contact Principal Librarian Joanna Axelrod at email@example.com or 760-839-4330. Information about other events and services can be found at library.escondido.org. Have items for the Social Butterfly?: Send them to: firstname.lastname@example.org
