â€œOn the 21st of the month, the best man I know will do what he always does on the 21st of the month. He'll sit down and pen a love letter to his best girl. He'll say how much he misses her and loves her and can't wait to see her again.
Then he'll fold it once, slide it in a little envelope and walk into his bedroom. He'll go to the stack of love letters sitting there on her pillow, untie the yellow ribbon, place the new one on top and tie the ribThe Paper - 760.747.7119
bon again. The stack will be 180 letters high then, because the 21st will be 15 years to the day since Nellie, his beloved wife of 53 years, died. In her memory, he sleeps only on his half of the bed, only on his pillow, only on top of the sheets, never between, with just the old bedspread they shared to keep him warm. There's never been a finer man in American sports than John Wooden, or a finer coach. He won
10 NCAA basketball championships at UCLA, the last in 1975. Nobody has ever come within six of him. He won 88 straight games between January 30, 1971, and January 17, 1974. Nobody has come within 42 since.
So, sometimes, when the Basketball Madness gets to be too much -- too many players trying to make Sports Center, too few players trying to make assists, too few coaches will-

ing to be mentors, too many freshmen with out-of-wedlock kids, too few freshmen who will stay in school long enough to become men -- I like to go see Coach Wooden.
I visit him in his little condo in Encino, 20 minutes northwest of Los Angeles, and hear him say things like "Gracious sakes alive!" and tell stories about teaching "Lewis" the hook shot. Lewis Alcindor, that is . . . who became Kareem Abdul Jabbar. There has never been another

coach like Wooden, quiet as an April snow and square as a game of checkers; loyal to one woman, one school, one way; walking around campus in his sensible shoes and Jimmy Stewart morals.
He'd spend a half hour the first day of practice teaching his men how to put on a sock. "Wrinkles can lead to blisters," he'd warn. These huge players would sneak looks at one another and roll their eyes. Eventually, they'd do it right. "Good," he'd say. "And now for the other foot." Of the 180 players who played for him, Wooden knows the whereabouts of 172. Of course, it's not hard when most of them call, checking on his health, secretly hoping to hear some of his simple life lessons so that they can write them on the lunch bags of their kids, who will roll their eyes.
"Discipline yourself, and others won't need to," Coach would say. "Never lie, never cheat, never steal," and "Earn the right to be proud and confident." If you played for him, you played by his rules: Never score without acknowledging a teammate. One word of profanity, and you're done for the day. Treat your opponent with respect.

He believed in hopelessly out-ofdate stuff that never did anything but win championships. No dribbling behind the back or through the legs. "There's no need," he'd say.
No UCLA basketball number was retired under his watch. "What about the fellows who wore that number before? Didn't they contribute to the team?" he'd say. No long hair, no facial hair. "They take too long to dry, and you could catch cold leaving the gym," he'd say. That one drove his players bonkers.
One day, All-America center Bill Walton showed up with a full beard. "It's my right," he insisted. Wooden asked if he believed that strongly. Walton said he did. "That's good, Bill," Coach said. "I admire people who have strong beliefs and stick by them, I really do. We're going to miss you." Walton shaved it right then and there. Now Walton calls once a week to tell Coach he loves him. It's always too soon when you have to leave the condo and go back out into the real world, where the rules are so much grayer and the teams so much worse. As Wooden shows you to the door, you take one last look around.

She said, “How about now . . ?” Convention
A man boarded an airplane and took his seat.. As he settled in, he glanced up and saw the most beautiful woman boarding the plane.
He soon realized she was heading straight towards his seat ... As fate would have it; she took the seat right beside his. Eager to strike up a conversation he blurted out, "Business trip or pleasure?"
She turned, smiled and said, "Business. I'm going to the Annual Nymphomaniacs of America Convention in Boston". He swallowed hard. Here was the most gorgeous woman he had ever seen sitting next to him, and she was going to a meeting of nymphomaniacs. Struggling to maintain his composure, he calmly asked, "What's your business role at this convention?"
"Lecturer," she responded. "I use information that I have learned from my personal experiences to debunk some of the
tures of Nellie.
He's almost 90 now. You think a little more hunched over than last time. Steps a little smaller. You hope it's not the last time you see him. He smiles. "I'm not afraid to die," he says. "Death is my only chance to be with her again." Problem is, we still need him here.” Rick Reilly, “The Life of Reilly”
The above column appeared in the March 2000 issue of Sports Illustrated. Rick Reilly is a senior writer for Sports Illustrated, and has been voted National Sportswriter of the Year eight times. This is the type of adulation, an almost reverential feeling of admiration for John Wooden. While I’m not a big fan of basketball I’m a big fan of great people people who are not only wise, but kind, considerate, well disciplined. That’s John Wooden.
I had a good friend (since deceased) who was a professional screenwriter in the Los Angeles area. His name was Mel Sherer. He has written many screen plays, comedy routines, and pilots. When he heard we were going to do a profile on John Wooden, he wrote:
“I was lucky enough to know and talk with Coach Wooden back when
popular myths about sexuality."
"Really?" he said. "And what kind of myths are there?"
"Well," she explained, "one popular myth is that AfricanAmerican men are the most well-endowed of all men, when in fact it is the Native American Indian who is most likely to possess that trait. Another popular myth is that Frenchmen are the best lovers, when actually it is men of Jewish descent who are the best. I have also discovered that the lover with absolutely the best stamina is the Southern Redneck." Suddenly the woman became a little uncomfortable and blushed. "I'm sorry," she said, "I shouldn't really be discussing all of this with you. I don't even know your name."
"Tonto," the man said, "Tonto Goldstein, but my friends call me Bubba." •••• City Of Chicago To Modernize Outdated Graft Programs. •••• A woman diagnosed as having a brain tumor was told by her doctor that she would need the transplant of a one-pound brain. The doctor then asked, "What type of brain do you want?"
I was at UCLA. I was on the track and football teams, so I always was in the Men's Gym, which was the facility we had at the time for our conditioning, etc. I'd see Coach on the stairs or in the locker room or just walking on campus and I'd say "hi." He'd always stop and chat. He did that with everyone he knew, I guess, if he had a few moments. I'd want to talk basketball. He'd ask me about how my classes were going. Many years later ... I think about 25 or so, my friends and I organized a reunion of many of the guys from our dormitory floor at school. We invited Coach Wooden to attend. To our absolute surprise and overwhelming delight, he accepted. We spent the entire afternoon talking with him over lunch, about his life (Nell had died), his theories, what he felt was important. He wanted to know about us. What a great man he is. What a truly great man. He'd be the last to say it, of course. If you're looking for a hero to pattern yourself after, look no farther than Coach (I mean Teacher) John R. Wooden. In my life, when faced with a difficult situation, I just think: What would Coach Wooden do? I'm not kidding. If you ever, and I hope you do, have a chance to talk to the man, please do it. You'll understand how his teachings and the way he lives his life are so inspirational to those who know him. Without a doubt, he is the greatest person I

"What type?" the woman asked.
"Yes," replied the doctor. "There is a substantial difference in price. For example, a one-pound brain of a surgeon costs $60,000, while you can get a one-pound brain of a nuclear physicist for $50,000, and so on. "Can you give me a onepound lawyer's brain? Ever since I was a little girl I've dreamed of being a trial attorney."
"That's $250,000," the doctor replied.
"Why so much? the woman asked. "That's over four times what a surgeon's brain costs."
"Do you have any idea how many lawyers it takes to produce a pound of brain?" the doctor replied. •••• Santa Claus, the tooth fairy, an honest lawyer and an old drunk are walking down the street together when they simultaneously spot a hundred dollar bill. Who gets it? The old drunk, of course, the other three are mythological creatures.

And that’s how people feel about this inspirational man. President George W. Bush thinks rather highly of John Wooden as well. He awarded Wooden the 2003 Presidential Medal of Freedom at the White House July 23rd, 2003. If he never coached one game of basketball in his life, John Wooden would still be a very, very special man.
But, fortunately for the sports world, he did coach a game or two. Quite a few in fact.
John Wooden is the only person to be inducted into the National Basketball Hall of Fame as both a player and a coach. Coach Wooden ended his coaching career of 40 seasons retiring in 1975 with 885 wins and only 203 losses.
John R. Wooden is a record-setting college basketball coach and exceptional teacher whose UCLA Bruins won 10 National Championships in 12 years. His teams reflected his discipline, character, and work ethic. His Pyramid of Success has inspired generations. John Wooden was a fabulous player

before becoming the most successful coach in college basketball history. He enjoyed an All-State career at Martinsville High School in Indiana, and at Purdue University was called the "Indiana Rubber Man" for his suicidal dives on the court. An excellent play maker and aggressive defender, Wooden was a three-time Helms Athletic Foundation All-American and named College Player of the Year in 1932, the year he and fellow Hall of Famer Charles "Stretch" Murphy led Purdue to the national championship. Wooden, who cites Ward Lambert, his Purdue coach, as being his greatest coaching influence, enjoyed a brief but successful semi-pro career before turning his complete attention to coaching.
The John Wooden-coached UCLA teams scaled unprecedented heights that no future organization in any sport is likely to approach. Under the masterful guidance of Wooden, the Bruins set all-time records with four perfect 30-0 seasons, 88 consecutive victories, 38 straight NCAA tournament victories, 20 PAC 10 championships, and 10 national championships, including seven in a row. After graduation from college, Wooden pursued a career in coaching. He spent two years at Dayton (KY) High School and nine years at South Bend (IN) Central High School, compiling a 218-42 record. Wooden then coached at Indiana State University, where he recorded a two-year 44-15 mark. Wooden's

big break came in 1948, when he accepted the head coaching position at UCLA. Although he would not win his first national title until 15 years later, Wooden began laying the groundwork for what would become the dynasty of all dynasties. He believed in lengthy practices for conditioning and endless drills to perfect fundamental skills.
Considered one of the finest teachers the game has ever seen, Wooden's approach rested on the idea that basketball is a game of threes: forward, guard, center; shoot, drive, pass; ball, you, man; conditioning, skill, teamwork. The latter was taught by coach Lambert at Purdue and forms the three blocks at the core of Wooden's own Pyramid of Success. The Pyramid is a well-known by-product of the Wooden coaching era. The principles outlined in it form the basis of Wooden's outlook on life and explain much of his success on and off the court. His ability to instill these principles upon his players made Wooden a master of developing talent. His premier players included All-Americans Walt Hazzard, Gail Goodrich, Lew Alcindor, Lucius Allen, Mike Warren, Sidney Wicks, Curtis Rowe, Henry Bibby, Bill Walton, Keith Wilkes, Richard Washington and Dave Meyers. Some of John Wooden’s quotes:

Attitude Nothing will work unless you do.
Faith There are many things that are essential to arriving at true peace of mind, and one of the most important is faith, which cannot be acquired without prayer.
Mind You cannot attain and maintain physical condition unless you are morally and mentally conditioned. And it is impossible to be in good moral condition unless you are spiritually conditioned. I always told my players that our team condition depended on two factors -- how hard they worked on the floor during practice and how well they behaved between practices. Perseverance It's not so important who starts the game but who finishes it. Sports Sports do not build character. They reveal it.
Success Success is peace of mind, a direct result of self-satisfaction in knowing that you did your best to become the best that you are capable of becoming, and not just in a physical way: seek ye first the king-

I've decided to focus at least 20% of my daily activities on inventing a time-travel machine. Once perfected, I'd like to go back to when I was about 35 years old (retaining, of course, all of the vast knowledge I have since accumulated over the ages), and about 50 lbs lighter. (I have zero interest in going back to when I was 18 or so).
I would incorporate the ability to be visible or invisible, my option, so that I could, for example, go back to the time of Hitler and, while invisible, hit him in the face with an axe. Goering, too. And Eichmann. I would go back to the time of Ghengis Khan and ask that he try to be a little nicer and more considerate of his fellow man.

I would also go back and visit some of my old girl friends. Never really had a bad relationship with a woman . . . we always parted best of friends. Some, however, I never got to tell how much they meant to me and how it was important to me that they were part of my life. I would like to do that. Might not mean a whole lot to them. It would to me.
I would probably spend even more time with my two sons. We had a good father/sons relationship . . . but I could have done even better. I probably should have encouraged them more. Who knows what they might have accomplished? I would go back and listen in on all of the war planning activities . . . on the plans for the Normandy Invasion . . . on the discussions when Harry Truman decided to drop the ABomb.

Two council members voiced reservations about the plan because Oceanside itself is approaching financial turmoil. Oceaanside, like most cities, has seen tax revenue dropping as people stay home and businesses close.
The city could establish a fund with up to $3 million to help as many as 300 businesses with interest-free loans for 90 days, was the prelimiinary plan. City staffers are already working 12 hour days dealing with COVD19 issue s so they said they’d need at least two weeks to come back with a plan.

His nickname was the Wizard of Westwood, and he hated it; didn't like "genius" either, or "best coach ever" -- though it's hard to argue with all those championships, the four undefeated seasons and a mind-boggling 88-game winning streak. John Wooden, the greatest college basketball coach in history, was born on October 14, 1910. He passed away on Friday, June 4, 2010, at the age of 99.
Games were the end of the teaching process, and Wooden believed they'd turn out well if his players had followed one of his favorite maxims: Failing to prepare is preparing to fail. Usually they were prepared, and it showed in Wooden's demeanor during games. "Coach Wooden basically was Cool Hand Luke," said Fred Slaughter, a starting center on UCLA's 1964 championship team. "He gave us our offense and defense, and then game time, it was as though all he
How Businesses Can Get Help
Congress just passed the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, a $2 trillion stimulus package aimed at helping Americans cope with an economy that is suddenly screeching to a halt. Small businesses, along with millions of employees, have been hit hard Under CARES, the Small Business Administration’s Paycheck Protection Plan is available to virtually every small business in America. There are two qualifications – businesses must employ less than 500 workers and been in business before February 15, 2020. The loans will sustain small businesses so they can keep workers employed. The loans will be fully forgiven if used for payroll costs and other operating expenses in the 8 weeks following the loan issue date. Businesses with multiple locations in the hospitality and food industry can also qualify if each store has less than 500 workers.

had to do was sit there and roll up his program and cross his legs or whatever and watch us go to 'em."
Wooden's connection to his former players grew stronger in the years after his beloved wife, Nell, died.
Second only to the pyramid in its exalted status is the seven-point creed handed down to Wooden by his father, Joshua. When John graduated from eighth grade in the small town of Centerton, Indiana, the story goes, Joshua gave him a $2 bill and a plain, white card. On one side of that card he’d written a poem by Henry van Dyke. On the other side was the creed that encapsulated Joshua Wooden’s philosophy of life: 1. Be true to yourself. 2. Help others. 3. Make each day your masterpiece. 4. Drink deeply from good books, especially the Bible. 5. Make friendship a fine art. 6. Build a shelter against a rainy day. 7. Pray for guidance and count and give thanks for your blessings every day.

Once you apply for an EIDL, also consider applying for a $10,000 Economic Injury Grant - it’s free -- you don’t have to repay it. More information is available at: https://covid19relief.sba.gov/#/
At the state level, $50 million will be allocated to the California Infrastructure and Economic Development Bank to guarantee loans to small businesses that may not qualify for federal funds. California will also allow small businesses to defer payment of sales and use taxes of $50,000 for up to 12 months. California’s small businesses employ 7 million people, and make up over 95 percent of all businesses in this region. Small business is hurting, millions are losing their jobs, but help is on the way. Assembly Republican Leader Marie Waldron, R-Escondido, represents the 75th Assembly District in the California Legislature, which includes the communities of Bonsall, Escondido, Fallbrook, Hidden Meadows, Pala, Palomar Mountain, Pauma Valley, Rainbow, San Marcos, Temecula, Valley Center and Vista.
We are in this fight together. While COVID-19 is the hidden enemy, we have seen the toll it’s taken upon our entire County. I mentioned this last week, but it’s just as true today. The Coronavirus doesn’t just affect Republicans or Democrats. It doesn’t discriminate based on the color of your skin, or what language you speak. We must all come together to defeat this enemy. While news continues to move by the hour, I wanted to provide you with an update of what we do know. The County of San Diego has extended its existing public health order indefinitely. The order was set to expire on March 31 but will continue with the closures of nonessential businesses, including bars, restaurant dining areas, schools, gym and fitness centers. Under the order, San Diegans may leave their homes for essential reasons, including buying food, picking up medications and exercising. While we understand these are drastic measures, it’s all done with safety in mind. I also have partnered with Supervisor Gaspar and County Tax Collector, Dan McAllister to send a letter to Gov. Newsom allowing a 60-day deadline extension for property tax payments. We haven’t heard back from the governor, so as of now, if you can pay your property taxes, pay them.
While the number of positive cases continues to rise, thankfully we aren’t seeing the same rate as many other places. Social distancing is the key to defeating COVID-19. Stay safe, stay healthy and together we will get through this!

Humane Society Receives $50,000 Matching Gift - Donations made to SDHS during the month of April will be doubled. San Diego Humane Society has received a $50,000 matching gift from Charles and Carol Baum, which will double donations made to the organization during the month of April. The gift was made in memory of the Baums’ beloved pets: Chelsea, Winston, Sullivan and Jordan. The gift will provide critical support for SDHS during this time of need.
As the community responds to the impact of COVID-19, animals are still entering San Diego Humane Society’s care every day. Donations will ensure that during this challenging time, the organization is able to continue providing shelter, lifesaving medical care, wildlife rescue and rehabilitation, animal cruelty investigations and more. “Our work for animals in need doesn’t stop,” said SDHS President and CEO Dr. Gary Weitzman. “We are San Diego’s safety net for animals, in good times and bad. No matter what else is going on in the world, animals are relying on us to save their lives. This generous matching gift helps ensure we can be there for every single one.” For more information, visit sdhumane.org. Donations can be made online at sdhumane.org/match and must be received by April 30 to be eligible for the match. “We’re honored to have the opportunity to inspire compassion for animals in our community during this difficult time,” said donor Charles Baum. “San Diego Humane Society’s lifesaving work continues despite everything else that is happening in the world, and we’re grateful that they’re here for animals and the people who love them.”
S.D. Humane Society Launches Innovative Adoption Process - Adopters can participate in a virtual consultation from home during COVID-199 pandemic. In response to California’s ‘Stay at Home’ order to prevent the spread of COVID-19, San Diego Humane Society has changed its adoption process to a virtual experience. SDHS campuses in Escondido, Oceanside and San Diego are open by appointment only each day from 10am to 4pm. Interested adopters should call SDHS at 619-299-7012 to make an appointment. An adoption counselor will call the prospective adopter to conduct a virtual consultation over the phone to discuss available animals and help the adopter choose the animal who best fits their lifestyle. Once the pet is adopted, the adopter can drive up to the campus and SDHS staff will help safely load the animal into the adopter’s car. “The COVID-19 pandemic is presenting significant challenges for San Diego Humane Society’s lifesaving work, but it is imperative that we continue to find homes for the animals in our care,” said SDHS president and CEO Dr. Gary Weitzman. “The flow of animals into shelters will not cease due to this virus, so we are pleased to be able to continue providing adoption services in this way.” San Diego Humane Society is encouraging any community member who is able to open their home and heart to a shelter pet in need. SDHS currently has more than 100 pets available for adoption. B-roll and photos of the adoption process are available here: https://bit.ly/2w3IcOG.

Historically Speaking by Tom Morrow
The Father of U.S. Air Force
In 1922, aviation pioneer Billy Mitchell correctly predicted what lay ahead in 20th century warfare, but at great personal cost. As early as 1906, Billy Mitchell predicted the strategic implementation of future wars would take place in the air, not on the ground. William "Billy" Mitchell, born Dec. 29, 1879, was an Army general who today is regarded the father of the United States Air Force.
As a result, Mitchell was an embarrassment to both military and civilian leaders. Accordingly, in October 1925, he was court-martialed for “insubordination” because he accused Army and Navy leaders of having an "almost treasonable administration of the national defense" by investing in battleships instead of aircraft carriers.
The court martial lasted for seven weeks. The youngest of the 12 judges was Maj. Gen. Douglas MacArthur, who voted for acquittal. MacArthur described sitting as a judge on Mitchell's court-martial as "one of the most distasteful orders I ever received." However, the majority of the panel found him "guilty of all specifications of the charges." The court suspended Mitchell from active duty for five years without pay, which President Coolidge later amended to half-pay. MacArthur said afterward "a senior officer should not be silenced for being at variance with his superiors in rank and with accepted doctrine." It was a stance that would prove to be the general’s undoing decades later.
Shortly after the trial, Mitchell resigned and spent the rest of his life writing and preaching air power. He received many honors, albeit after his death on Feb. 19, 1936, President Franklin D. Roosevelt commissioned him a Major General. He also is the only individual for whom a military aircraft, the North American B-25 Mitchell bomber, is named. The twinengine bomber was used on the heroic “Jimmy Doolittle raid” over Tokyo six months after the Pearl Harbor attack.
In March 1912, Mitchell toured battlefields of the Russo-Japanese War and concluded that war with Japan would someday be a reality.
After World War I, Mitchell began advocating for an increase in U.S. air power. One of the problems he had was “the war to end all wars” had just been fought and few military or civilian really believed in any future conflict. Recognized as one of the top combat airmen of “The Great War,” Mitchell, next to Eddie Rickenbacker, was probably the best-known American in Europe. He was awarded the Distinguished Service Cross and the Distinguished Service Medal.
After the war, Mitchell began advocating that bombers could sink battleships. While he would prove his theory, it was the beginning of Mitchell’s undoing because few in either the Army or Navy shared his vision.
In February 1921, a bombing demonstration using captured German ships was reluctantly agreed to by the Navy. Mitchell had infuriated the Navy by claiming he could sink ships "under war-time conditions," and boasted he could prove it if he were permitted to bomb and sink captured German battleships. The demonstration was a success.
In 1923, Mitchell repeated the bombing tests with the same results on three obsolete American battleships USS Alabama, USS Virginia and USS New Jersey. President Harding and Navy officials were angry because the demonstration showed U.S. Naval weakness.
Mitchell’s bombing tests caused budgets to be redrawn for further air development and forced the Navy to look more closely at the possibilities of Naval airpower. One of his predictions: ”There would be a future surprise attack on the Hawaiian Islands by
In Air Force circles Mitchell is regarded today as a hero, legend and the father of the U.S. air power.
REAGANISM – President Ronald Reagan was known for his humor, especially when it came to government and the taxpayer. On many occasions he explained our civil service system: “The taxpayer is someone who works for the federal government but doesn't have to take the civil service examination.” Reagan had a formula on how to take the economic temperature of the nation to determine how good or bad our economy was. The ‘Gipper’ explained: “A ‘recession’ is someone else being out of work; a ‘depression’ is when you’re out of work.”

It’s a weird feeling. There’s nothing to do and nowhere to go. Our commercial districts resemble New England beach resorts in the dead of winter. There’s the pervasive mood of apocalyptic movies like “On The Beach” or “The Quiet Place,” but this time there is no nuclear catastrophe or alien invasion. This time we did it to ourselves. For the first time in history, world leaders agreed that it would be better to shut down human activity
In America and most countries the strategy behind this first ever “experimental” attempt to stop a pandemic before it actually becomes one involves a temporary shut down or severe limitation of human interaction. In the USA this involves a “temporary” shutdown of the World’s most powerful and dynamic economy in order to stop the spread of the Covid19 virus. If we are successful, we will never know whether it was worth the disruption because we will never know how bad Corvid19 would have been.
Some will say the effort was worthwhile no matter what the cost simply because it saved lives. In reality, a human life is not “priceless.” If we really believed human life was priceless we would ban alcohol, tobacco, swimming, sky diving, motorcycles, skateboarding and re-set the national speed limit to 25MPH. Whether we wish to accept it or not, human life does have an economic price tag. For many years to come the wisdom of our response to the “Corvid19 crisis” will be a subject for debate. The arguments will come later but right now we

At The Computer Factory the work and school shut downs have increased demand for working home PC systems. Keeping these systems up and running with repairs and upgrades has kept us working long hours. Demand for all types of PCs have been strong, particularly for All-In-One and notebooks PCs. These PCs have the integrated camera, speaker and microphone systems needed for ZOOM, Skype and other Internet based meeting applications. Demand for desktop PCs and monitors have also surged. We’ve been able to meet the recent high demand because we built our inventories of “refurbs” during February and March.

Stage company, a professional theatre company located in Temecula, that produces musical theater and plays. Jordan Beck, Executive Director along with J. Scott Lapp, Artistic Director for The Barn Stage Company will oversee the new Center Theatrics department and help in the production of Theatrical Arts at the Center.
Jorday and J. Scott "Having found a home in Escondido, we are thrilled to take what we started with The Barn Stage Company and continue our mission of theatrical excellence by joining the California Center for the Arts family," said Beck. The Center first partnered with The Barn Stage Company in the fall of 2018 with the production of “The Best of Broadway”. With the success of that show, it has led to the production of more shows including “The Best of Motown”, “The Piano Men”, and “Happily After Ever”. “We look forward to joining the team in Escondido and introducing a new Broadway caliber season of plays, musicals and special events in 2020 and beyond." Lapp said. Jerry VanLeeuwen, Executive Director of The Center, is excited for the merge.
rial here at the shop.
In our shop, the social distancing, masking, hand washing wiping and cleaning require concentration. These are not things we are accustomed to thinking about so if we slip up, don’t hesitate to point it out. We all need a little help to stay on point. Whatever your personal feelings about the Corvid19 shutdown, it is what it is. We need to play by the rules and get through it. In a strange way it has tended to unite us. It has largely pushed the past three years of political negativity out of the news, our conversations and our minds. It has forced us to look at one another as people and neighbors and not political stereotypes. Some other good things will come out of all this in ways we can’t yet imagine. Times like these force us to re-evaluate old habits and methods and to change. The times we hate living through like Wars, depressions and civil strife usually make us better people when we finally emerge on the other side. So will this.
“Jordan and J. Scott are so well respected locally and in the industry. Their connections and reputation have already enhanced the programming options of the Center,” VanLeeuwen said. “This new connection will bring events we have not even imagined yet. I cannot wait.” The Center will be announcing the Theatrical Arts 2020-21 season by the end of the month. The Center is located at 340 N. Escondido Blvd. in Escondido. The Ticket Office can be reached at (800) 988-4253. Tickets can also be purchased online. To learn more, including performance dates, times, and ticket information, visit artcenter.org.

San Marcos Creek Project Construction Is Underway
The first phase of active construction on the $104 million San Marcos Creek Project has begun. In the upcoming weeks, the construction team is expected to begin clearing non-native plants in the creek bed, building a levee adjacent to Discovery Street, prepping Discovery Street for future widening and closing Bent Avenue for road improvements and bridge construction. Project construction activities are exempt under Governor Newsom's stay at home order, and given the importance of the project and its role in providing critical transportation infrastructure and relief from flooding, the City will continue with construction as planned.
Please note that the health and safety of our community is the City's top priority. The construction team is taking all recommended precautions to stay healthy and safe by following the guidance from public health officials. Residents are encouraged to visit www.san-marcos.net/creek
Escondido • Mayor Paul “Mac” Mcnamara Greetings Escondido,
I receive a lot of emails asking about COVID 19 virus or offering suggestions. I appreciate all the emails, concerns and ideas. One of the more popular suggestions is the use of the old hospital. As a short update, that idea was considered early on by the Health Care professionals and rejected for alternate strategies. That said, this is a dynamic situation, so you never know, but for right now the idea is known by those who have to make the decision.
I will probably be making an update video on a weekly basis. Please check the city website. I would also remind you to check the county and 211 websites for updates and professional advice on what to do. Social media is great for staying in contact, but should not be your source for how to combat the virus. Here are a few links I would ask you to check out:

Chuckles Cont. from Page 2
A lawyer named Strange was shopping for a tombstone. After he had made his selection, the stonecutter asked him what inscription he would like on it. "Here lies an honest man and a lawyer," responded the lawyer.
"Sorry, but I can't do that," replied the stonecutter. "In this state, it's against the law to bury two people in the same grave. However, I could put ``here lies an honest lawyer''."
"But that won't let people know who it is" protested the lawyer.
"Certainly will," retorted the stonecutter. "people will read it and exclaim, "That's Strange!"
At a convention of biological scientists one researcher remarks to another, "Did you know that in our lab we have switched from mice to lawyers for our experiments?" "Really?" the other replied, "Why did you switch?"
"Well, for two reasons. First we found that lawyers are far more plentiful, and second, the lab assistants don't get so attached to them." Why is it that many lawyers have broken noses?
From chasing parked ambulances.
There was a young man shipwrecked on an island. He found a magic lamp on the shore one day, picked it up and rubbed it.
A Genie appeared. However, he was not a typical Genie, he was an attorney Genie. When

The City of Oceanside has created a utility service relief program for businesses that must remain closed to the public due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The goal of the program is to support Oceanside’s local business community and provide relief for water, sewer and solid waste utility services by temporarily stopping all utility services and charges. Oceanside businesses who wish to take advantage of the relief program may complete an online form or contact Oceanside’s Utility Billing Division at (760) 435-3900 and request their account be considered for the “COVID Utility Service Relief Program.” Staff will then begin the verification process to determine if the business meets the qualifications of the program. Qualifying business include bars, restaurants and establishments that were identified for immediate closure in the County’s Emergency Regulations dated March 16, 2020. Eligible businesses must be closed to the public and not providing take-out, catering or drive-through services.
the Genie told the man he was also an attorney the man laughed and said, "Oh come on, Genies can't be attorneys too!"
The Genie said he would prove it. He told the man to make his three wishes, but on one condition, for every wish he made, all attorneys were granted DOUBLE of what the man wished for. The man pondered the offer and decided that something was better than nothing and decided his three wishes.
"My first wish is for 1 million dollars". The Genie reminded the man that he would grant the wish, but all attorneys would get double that amount. The man agreed and then made his second wish. "My second wish is for a beautiful blonde with blue eyes." Once again the Genie granted the wish and also granted all attorneys with two of the blonde blue-eyed babes. The Genie announced that the man had one more wish
and to consider his choice carefully. The man thought for a moment. Suddenly he drew the Genie's attention to a piece of driftwood lying on the beach. He told the Genie:
"For my next wish, please pick up that piece of driftwood and beat me HALF to death!" Saint Peter was having a slow day at the Pearly Gates so he took a little stroll. He noticed that the fence between heaven and hell was in need of some repair. So he hollers over the fence to Lucifer. Saint Peter: "This fence needs some repair. I'll see to it that it gets fixed if you will help pay for it." Lucifer: "If you want it fixed, you pay for it."
Saint Peter: "The fence is partly your responsibility and you will help pay for it or I will sue you for that amount." Lucifer: "Ha!! Where do you think you are going to get a lawyer?!"

Fighting the Corona Virus
Before I became a Dentist I had received my B.S. in Biology and was completing my Masters in Kinesiology when I left UCLA to go to the Georgetown School of Dentistry. I was very well educated in the sciences and from my early learnings (1970 +) there was the ongoing battle between viruses and humans competing with their ever challenging lethal stains that would wreak havoc on us. As scientists we all knew that someday, thru mutation, a potential strain would develop that could become a world wide pandemic.
Today, we are here and the time is NOW. As a seasoned professional I had a choice to make regarding my role, and my staff’s, in this struggle to overcome this new virus. For me, there was no choice. It is my responsibility to treat those in need of dental emergencies, whether they need an extraction of a tooth, the endodontic treatment of an abscess, an opening and draining of oral tissues, in an effort to free our medical personal for treating the virus. Our physicians, nurses and staff need to be in our hospitals administering to our people, and

we need to handle those needing immediate oral attention but not virurally involved. My staff has agreed to stand with me regarding our role in the effort to survive this calamity. My staff, each one individually, has chosen to take as much risk as I am in the chance that we too may be strickened with this disease, because we all can help. This said, we have taken all the necessary precautions to prevent this from happening, and to prevent its transmission to you. We are donning all the protective measures directed by hazmat, and to meet their specifications in our practice, as they have them in the hospitals. With them in place our chances of encountering the virus directly is limited. We are seeing patients, old and new, that require our immediate attention, Monday thru Thursday from 9:00 – 3:00 and Saturdays from 9:00 – 12:00. These are for persons in need only. We have extensive experience in all aspects of dentistry but for now, emergency services only.
I hope that business minds and making profits will take a backseat to the needs of the humanity at large in this world. This very sub-

ject has been brought up with our members of congress and the world, for years and we were warned of our lack, and the world’s lack of preparedness if a pandemic were to arise. China, Russia, and the US must learn that the development of “Super Viruses” does not bode well for their nations or the world. For now, we must listen to those who make sense, whose theories for fighting and overcoming this virus are founded on scientific evidence which are applied correctly. Physical isolation is demanded and we must if we want our friends, family and neighbors to survive. In our world we have developed sys-
tems of communication that don’t require us to be physically present to be intellectually and/or socially connected. This type of communication is beyond the virus’s reach. Let’s utilize it, defeat the present virus, learn from it and become more proactive for the future. We can be very proud of our past history of challenges such as war, depression, and our ability to meet our challenges. Let’s follow in our predecessors footsteps and make our future generations proud… and safe. For good health,
