Volume 49 - No. 15
By Friedrich Gomez
Even though many of us were not even born during the 1950s or 1960s, there is something about those decades that continues to fascinate and stimulate the interest of today’s teenagers who often know more trivia on the 1950s and 1960s music than their own grandparents. --No one knows more about The Paper - 760.747.7119
Buddy Holly and the Crickets, Elvis Presley, Chuck Berry, or Bill Haley and His Comets, than my close-knit friend, Chad Thomas, who just turned 29 last month.
Point being, few decades in American culture continues to hold such a fascination – even on a massive worldwide scale – as our 1950s and 1960s timeline. And not just for the old-timers, but their grandchildren as well.
No matter when you were born, or even where you were born, you no longer get an automatic “Hall Pass” of forgiveness if you don’t know about your own American heritage and culture, especially during the 1950s and 1960s when our country first invented rock ‘n’ roll. Rock ‘n’ roll is uniquely American in its origin. And although the term “teenager” has a long pedi-
gree, it remained relatively obscure, until it exploded on the American landscape with the teenage culture peaking in popularity during the early to mid1950s, with America’s unique creation, rock ‘n’ roll music, as the engine which drove the teenage culture skyward; the music eventually permeating every civilized country on this third planet from the Sun.

AMERICAN CULTURE CHANGED THE WORLD. The world has never been the same since American rock ‘n’ roll music first exploded onto the planet. It changed the entire human landscape of thinking, re-booted sexual taboos, ignited fires of opposing debates, alienated parents and children on a variety of combustible counterpoints, and became a feeding trough for pastors, ministers, and politicians to sermonize over and critique.
The music liberated many on the dance floor, and showcased American teenagers dancing to their own rock ‘n’ roll invention on Dick Clark’s wildly-popular “American Bandstand” nationwide television show. Foreign countries had a “keyhole” peek at our own unique rite-of-passage and – like it or not – their own foreign youth yearned to join-in on this intoxicating “American Forbidden Fruit.”
FOREIGN COUNTRIES IMITATE OUR ’50s & ’60s CULTURE. As with the Sirens in Ancient Greek mythology who lured people with the sweetness of their song, likewise in time, the

An aphorism is a statement of truth or opinion expressed in a concise and witty manner. The term is often applied to philosophical, moral and literary principles.
♦ I read that 4,153,237 people got married last year. Not to cause any trouble, but shouldn't that be an even number?
♦ I find it ironic that the colors red, white, and blue stand for freedom until they are flashing behind you. ♦ When wearing a bikini, women reveal 90% of their body. Men are so polite they only look at the covered parts.
♦ Relationships are a lot like algebra. Have you ever looked at your X
world succumbed to the fascination of our seemingly carefree culture of bubble-gum, roller coasters, and rebellious Hollywood movies such as James Dean’s classic 1955 “Rebel Without a Cause,” and the 1955 teen cult film “Blackboard Jungle” set to Bill Haley and His Comet’s global hit record “Rock Around the Clock,” or the young, black leather jacket-clad Marlon Brando, a rabble-rousing motorcycle gang leader in the daring 1953 counter-culture film “The Wild One.”
Today, teenagers in Japan, England, Germany, South America and other foreign countries have created clubs which copy the American-style clothing of the ’50s and ’60s era. For example, Elvis Presley impersonator-contests are an annual occurrence overseas, as are Marilyn Monroe look-a-like events and fan clubs.
Even in the most remote recesses of China (the most populated country in the world), China’s reclusive and relatively-isolated culture reveres and recognizes Elvis Presley to the point of staging an Elvis Presley tribute just last August 7, 2018, in Shanghai, China, all part of the vastly popuand wondered Y?
♦ America is a country which produces citizens who will cross the ocean to fight for democracy but won't cross the street to vote. ♦ You know that tingly little feeling you get when you love someone? That's your common sense leaving your body.
♦ My therapist says I have a preoccupation with vengeance. We'll see about that!
♦ I think my neighbor is stalking me as she's been Googling my name on her computer. I saw it through my telescope last night. ♦ Money talks ... but all mine ever says is good-bye.
♦ You're not fat, you're just easier to see. ♦ If you think nobody cares whether you're alive, try missing a couple of payments.
♦ I always wondered what the job application is like at Hooters. Do they just give you a bra and say, "Here, fill this out?" ♦ I can’t understand why women are OK that JC Penny has an older women’s clothing line named, "Sag Harbor."
♦ Denny’s has a slogan, "If it’s your birthday, the meal is on us." If you’re in Denny’s and it’s your
lar “Elvis Festival.”
This is a most remarkable cultural benchmark for the Ancient Chinese culture, especially in light of the fact that when Elvis Presley first peaked in popularity in mid1950 America, China officially banned the intrusion of such foreign culture, labeling it as “American decadence.” Times have greatly changed since then.
In a report filed recently by United Press International from Beijing, China, and picked up by the Los Angeles Times: “Young Chinese in Beijing and Shanghai are snapping up Elvis Presley music! The music comes with Chinese-language lyrics and an Elvis pocket calendar!”
“This is the last and only place where Elvis has never been released,” says Anders Nelsson, the music publishing house overseeing the project. “This guy is more popular here than we could ever possibly have imagined!” Nelsson was quoted as saying, direct from Beijing, China. From our iconic comic books, movies, hot rods and muscle cars against the backdrop of America’s
birthday, your life sucks!
♦ The location of your mailbox shows you how far away from your house you can go in a robe before you start looking like a mental patient. ♦ I think it's pretty cool how Chinese people made a language entirely out of tattoos. ♦ Money can’t buy happiness, but it keeps the kids in touch!
♦ The reason Mayberry was so peaceful and quiet was because nobody was married. Andy, Aunt Bea, Barney, Floyd, Howard, Goober, Gomer, Sam, Earnest T Bass, Helen, Thelma Lou, Clara and, of course, Opie were all single. The only married person was Otis, and he stayed drunk. The difference between Republicans and Democrats is that Republicans are the ones saying, "Get off my lawn," and Democrats are the ones saying, "Let's legalize the grass." Did I read that sign right?

own rock ‘n’ roll music creation, has proven irresistible nostalgia and lives-on, even beyond our own American shorelines.
Today, countless Americans in their teens and 20s know much about the ’50s and ’60s era through more contemporary cult films, such as “American Graffiti,” and “Fast Times At Ridgemont High,” as well as “Hollywood Knights” and the ever-popular trilogy “Back to the Future,” starring Michael J. Fox, who first travels back in time to the year 1955. WHAT WAS LIFE LIKE BACK THEN? Life in the 1950s and 1960s are power-points in learning about how our cultural values, politics, sexual taboos, and society in general, were shaped and changed, for better or for worse. From some vantage points, the difference between 1950 America and today can be quite shocking when viewed in our cultural rearview mirror. The archival statistics listed below, clearly tell of two completely different Americas, complete with different value systems.

In 1950 America, gum chewing and unauthorized talking in class were among the major disciplinary problems in public schools. By 2016 to 2019, many of our public schools have been equipped with metal detectors because of increasing violence with knives and guns, both resulting in fatalities in our schools across the nation.

However, to keep things in proper perspective, the “Good Ol’ Days” were not always that. There is obviously a “trade-off ” equation here. Depending on one’s focal points, there was much housecleaning to do in the ’50s and ’60s regarding Civil Rights, women equality in the workplace, equal gender pay, etc., which most countries at the time were also experiencing. Regarding the 1960s, one cannot use broad brush-strokes in painting a picture of 1960s America. Vietnam War protests/riots divided America politically, culminating in the hippie drug and liberal sex sub-culture. Also, the assassinations of 3 paradigmatic individuals: President John F. Kennedy, civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King, and U. S. presidential hopeful Robert Kennedy – all within the 1960s timeline. Nevertheless, our public school children K-12, were vastly safer during (both) the 1950s and 1960s America than any decade which followed. Marriages back in the 1950s and 1960s rarely dissolved into divorce; divorce carried a social

Reminiscent of the mythical Camelot, which disappears and reappears every 100 years, Escondido’s Cruisin’ Grand disappears only to return once-a-year for just a brief, precious period of time. This year’s 20th anniversary Cruisin’ Grand runs Friday, April 5 and continues through the summer until Friday, September 27, 2019. The festivities begin Friday nights, from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.
And the vehicles are not solely from the ’50s and ’60s – the vintage automobiles, roadsters, classic vehicles, custom hot rods, and even fire engine trucks, tractors and the like, run the full spectrum from early 1900 to more recent years. Some even as far back as the “horseless carriages” (the Brass Era cars) from the late 1800s. EVERY FRIDAY NIGHT HAS A DIFFERENT THEME. Every Friday night at Cruisin’ Grand features a different theme,
them for Holy Week and Easter: Maundy Thursday, April 18th, Holy Eucharist, 7pm; Good Friday, April 19, Solemn Liturgy, 7pm; Holy Saturday, April 20, Great Vigil of Easter, 6pm; Easter Sunday, April 21, Festival Holy Eucharist, 9am.

Carlsbad High School Robotics Team Invited to FIRST Championship – The Carlsbad High School Robotics Team #5015 Buffalo Wings has the unique opportunity to compete in the FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC) FIRST Championship in Houston, Texas. The team was invited via the FIRST lottery for the competition that begins April 17 through April 20, 2019. Only 12 out of 7,010 teams are invited annually to this competition, held at the George R. Brown Convention Center.
FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) is a program created by Dean Kamen with four subsections: JR. FIRST LEGO League (JFLL), FIRST LEGO League (FLL), FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC), and FIRST Robotics Challenge (FRC). This all-encompassing international organization was created to spark a passion for engineering and software design, as well as to provide a platform for the entrepreneurial spirit, within students aged six through eighteen. Teams are challenged to design, program, and build their own robots to complete an annual series of tasks during competition. This year, our mission, “Rover Ruckus,” was created to cultivate young minds in “junior space exploration.” “This is a dream come true,” says Aiko Lozar, a sophomore at Carlsbad High School and the team’s Business Head.

The Paper • Page 4 • April 11, 2019 SoCal Tree Trimmers Cited for Illegal Bidding; One Suspect Arrested for Being “Potential Threat” to Residents
The Contractors State License Board (CSLB) cited 25 suspects for contracting illegally in San Diego County in an undercover sting. The sting targeted tree trimmers and removers as it is a highly skilled trade that could result in serious injury or property damage for consumers and could be potentially fatal for those who are not properly licensed. Among the group cited was suspect Miguel Cruz Ruiz, who gave a bid for tree removal while under the influence and was found to have several outstanding warrants for his arrest.
On March 20-21, CSLB’s Statewide Investigative Fraud Team (SWIFT) partnered with the San Diego District Attorney’s office and the San Diego Police Department and went undercover as homeowners to invite alleged unlicensed contractors to bid on outdoor home improvement projects at a home in Rancho Penasquitos. Investigators contacted suspected unlicensed contractors based on their online and business card advertisements, and ads printed on the sides of trucks. Of the suspects who were contacted, 25 unlicensed workers came to place bids. More than two thirds of the group placed bids between $2,300 and $5,000 for tree removal and stump grinding. Other bids
included $15,000 to install artificial turf, nearly $9,000 to replace swimming pool equipment, and almost $13,000 for installing pavers. Twenty-four suspects were found to be violating state contracting law by placing bids well over the legal threshold for contracting without a license. In California, it's illegal for an unlicensed person to perform any contracting work on a project valued at $500 or more in combined labor and material costs.
Suspect Ruiz placed a bid for $5,000 to remove six large trees from the property – a dangerous task that requires a contractor license. San Diego Police officers began a routine background check at the sting and found that Ruiz had multiple warrants for his arrest, including failing to appear in court for a DUI. It was also clear to the officers that Ruiz was under the influence of multiple substances and, therefore, posed a potential threat to the residents of Rancho Penasquitos. Ruiz was issued a notice to appear in court for acting in the capacity of a contractor without a license and the San Diego Police officers escorted him to jail.

Man About Town
Some thoughts about growing older . . .
Jeanne Louise Calment had the longest confirmed human Life span on record: 122 years and 164 days.
It seems that fate strongly approved of the way Madam Calment lived her life. Jeanne was born in Arles, France, on 21st February 1875.
When the Eiffel Tower was built, she was 14 year old. It was at this time that she met Vincent van Gogh. "He was dirty, badly dressed and disagreeable," she recalled in an interview given in 1988.
When Jeanne was 114, she starred in a film about her life; at 115 she had an operation on her hip, and at 117 she gave up smoking (having started at the age of 21 in 1896). Apparently, she didn’t give it up for health reasons, but cause she didn’t like having to ask someone to help her light a cigarette once she was becoming almost blind. In 1965, Jeanne was 90 years old and had no heirs. She signed a deal to sell her apartment to a 47-yearold lawyer called André-François Raffray. He agreed to pay her a monthly sum of 2,500 francs on the condition that he would inherit her apartment after she died. However, Raffray not only ended up paying Jeanne for 30 years, but died before she did at the age of 77. His widow was legally obliged to continue paying Madam Calment. until the end of her days, Jeanne retained sharp mental faculties.
When she was asked on her 120th birthday what kind of future she expected to have, she replied: "A very short one." Quotes and rules of life from Jeanne Calment:

Two apartment buildings in Oceanside were sufficiently damaged last Saturday by a fire that 30 tenants were displaced and two injured. News reports say that a meth lab exploded, causing the fire, but police could not yet confirm that as fact. The cause of the fire was under investigation.
A one-story building on Division Street and a two-story building on Brooks Street were damaged.

The hills of San Diego and Riverside County are covered in green, thanks to all the rain we’ve had this year.

making me part of this hours long testimony process when Evelyn Madison had chosen to take the high road and not involve me. Mr. Geary, owner of Dave’s Computer Repair and Sales in Escondido, and his legal team (whom he got Kiwanis to pay for when I and the others had no such support) even sent a process server to my children's home in a county and place I did not live to further that harassment. I indeed have moved but my current address is well published both publicly and within Kiwanis circles. I was completely embarrassed by the concern he made my adult children feel, yet when his lawyer called me, I cordially (of course) agreed to go.
Thank you for continuing to publish the truth. I was bullied, slandered and threatened by Dave Geary during a time of community service leadership that should have been one of the best memories and times of my life. I am sad to learn from your article that he still takes no ownership of actions and the very real damages to the many people (especially women) that he has hurt.
I've remained silent until now and am only speaking out to
traipsing about in poodle skirts, with hair in ponytails bouncing behind them, causing one famous Hollywood comedian to quip: “I saw so many ponytails in front of me I thought I was at Santa Anita Racetrack!”
Likewise, teen boys can be spotted dressed in Levis (with cuffed pants) and white t-shirts with high rolled-up sleeves, complete with greased hair, ducktail, and the obligatory “spit curl” on their forehead, ala John Travolta in the 1978 movie-musical “Grease.”
Cruisin’ Grand is the brain child of Steve Waldron. Waldron had a precious dream that became a reality two decades ago when he first introduced Cruisin’ Grand to the city of Escondido on April 7, 2000. But even Waldron is still amazed at the growth and popularity of Cruisin’ Grand. When I interviewed him two years ago he told me: “I never honestly thought it would grow this big.” This year’s 2019 Cruisin’ Grand is expected to draw over 250,000 spectators!
If Steve Waldron has a fault, it’s his humility. He deflects complidefend myself and the great organization of Kiwanis International which I am still a part of. Respectfully yours, Lori Butler

Born in Los Angeles in 1961, he moved to Escondido in 1972 and that’s the best city-to-city move since the Dodgers left Brooklyn. Speaking of the Dodgers, I asked Waldron a hardball question a while back: “If you could only choose 3 classic-year cars, what would they be?”
He hesitated, then said: “Wow, that’s a tough question. I would have to pick a 1932 Ford 5Window Hot Rod, a 1944 Ford Coupe, and a 1941 Willy’s. The ’32 Ford is America’s sweetheart hot rod -- if you saw American Graffiti you’ll see why. The ’44 Ford Coupe has brilliance in design.

Though there are countless car shows around the United States, Cruisin’ Grand departs their company by not only displaying their fabulous cars in parked fashion, but, they also cruise the cars upand-down Grand Avenue in a kaleidoscope of movement and color, all to the backdrop of vintage music from live bands strategically placed throughout the downtown area as couples munch on hotdogs, bags of kettle popcorn, or nurse their favorite margaritas from outside tables at local bistros, while watching the atmosphere unfold before them. Cruisin’ Grand continues to draw spectators and aficionados that span the gamut of everyday citizenry to top television personalities, recording artists, and movie stars, who often blend into the crowds, unnoticed. “Incognito,” being their fashion-of-choice. Car buffs and aficionados like Jay Leno, who owns his own private car collection, are aware of Cruisin’ Grand, as are the stars of The Discovery Channel who have attended this event. The fun event is reminiscent of

what NBC television host David Letterman once quipped on his Late Nite Show: “It’s almost too much fun for human beings to be allowed to have!”
Aside from visitors flocking in from all-over San Diego County including Encinitas, Carlsbad, Oceanside, Vista, San Marcos, Poway, and all-points in-between, many out-of-state tourists adjust their annual vacation plans to include this most remarkable classic, custom, hot rod, antique, and vintage car event which resembles a nonstop pageantry, a spectacular and breathtaking moving museum on wheels. What was life truly like back in mid-20th century America? Hop on board our Time Machine, buckle your seat belts, and take a fun, interactive multiple-choice quiz. Keep score just for fun. 8-10 Correct = Top Expert. 6-7 Correct = Excellent. 4-5 Correct = Very Good.
WHAT DID THE SLANG “WET RAG” MEAN IN THE ’50s & ’60s? A. Unfinished business. B. Inexperienced person. C. Boring person who’s no fun.
Well, if you remember grandpa or grandma (or even dad), you may have heard them use this phrase. If you selected “C” you’re correct! The term “wet rag” may have been around a lot longer than the 1950s and ’60s, but it peaked in popularity during those years and referred to a boring person or “party-pooper” who was not fun to hang out with. IN 1960 “THAT’S A REAL GAS!” MEANT: A. Plateful of beans. B. Fast car. C. Great or fun time.
Well, if you got this one right, you’re on a roll! The slang “That’s a real gas” or its variations “What a gas” was around a long while but gained super popularity during the 1950s and 1960s in America and meant a great or exciting experience, or idea, or even an exciting or fun person (such as “Your uncle is a real gas!”). “ONE OF THESE DAYS ALICE – POW!! – STRAIGHT TO THE MOON!!” One of television’s most famous phrases is from what sitcom that is still in reruns today? A. Leave It to Beaver. B. The Honeymooners.
C. The Flintstones.
The ever-popular phrase is from The Honeymooners (1955-1956), so “B” is the right answer. Still in re-runs today, The Honeymooners starred Jackie Gleason (as Ralph Kramden) who often used the phrase when threatening his wife Alice (played by Audrey Meadows). “SNAP, CRACKLE AND POP” IS WHAT CEREAL? A. Kellogg’s Rice Krispies. B. Cocoa-Puffs (by General Mills). C. Kellogg’s Sugar Pops.
Correct answer is “A” for Kellogg’s Rice Krispies! The popular cereal slogan “Snap, Crackle and Pop” referred to 3 Kellogg characters who advertised the snap, crackle, pop sounds which the morning cereal made with milk. The cereal was first introduced in 1950 as Corn Pops.
WORLDWIDE POPULAR NOVELTY OF THE 1950s. A. Hula Hoops. B. Barbie Dolls. C. Tree Houses. If you picked “A” Hula Hoop, then you go to the head of the class! The hula hoops go back to ancient times and no one particular company, inventor, or even culture, can claim the first hula hoop. One culture, the Ancient Greeks, often used hooping as a form of exercise. The hula hoop gained its greatest international popularity during the late 1950s when a plastic version was marketed by California’s Wham-O Toy Company and others. By July of 1958 over 25-million hula hoops were sold in less than 4 months with sales over 100-million in just two years!
THE SLANG “YOU’RE A CARD!” MEANT. A. You’re a businessman. B. You like playing cards. C. You’re a humorous person. This slang has been around a long time, but it gained great popularity during the 1950s and 1960s in America. Correct answer is “C” meaning a funny or humorous person or prankster.
THE SLANG “EGGHEAD” MEANT. A. An intellectual or smart person. B. Person with egg-shaped head. C. Person who eats a lot of eggs.

Equal Pay is a No-Brainer
April 2 was National Equal Pay Day, which marks the EXTRA time an average woman has to work to take home what a man earned last year. As a member of the California Pay Equity Task Force, I am working with my colleagues to identify the causes of the pay gap. California passed an Equal Pay Act in 1949. The act banned companies from paying anyone less than a coworker doing the same work, solely because of their gender.
Even so, women continue to earn significantly less than their male counterparts. In California, where we pride ourselves on treating others fairly, women take home 86 cents for every dollar earned by men. While that is the smallest pay gap nationally, it still means women in this state lose a combined total of $76.8 billion each year. We can and we must do better.
If we close the wage gap, a woman could pay for 9.5 more months of child care, 48 weeks of food for her family, or more than 3 months of mortgage and utility payments. As part of our effort to promote equal pay, the California Pay “Living large” in San Marcos
Nome and I are like thousands of other couples young and old in North County. We can afford to spurge once in a while but we truly enjoy finding the hidden gems in our area. The lesser known places where you get to feel special. Then there is that feeling of satisfaction you get from knowing that you got a really good deal.
A few Years back the San Marcos Chamber of Commerce got a bunch of local restaurants together with a promotion called “No Cook Tuesday.” The idea was to encourage locals to eat out on what is usually a slow night for local eateries. Each restaurant would offer a special menu on Tuesdays with reduced prices. The promotion went on for a couple of years but gradually died out everywhere, well almost everywhere. It still lives at the San Marcos Brewery and Grill. They won’t give it to you unless you ask. You must ask for the special “No Cook” menu available only on Tuesday.
This special menu has eight complete dinner choices and includes your non-alcohol drinks and either appetizer or dessert. The price for two is $29. The San Marcos Brewery and Grill is a gem. Their food is unsurpassed, the ambience is home town and the wall murals are a hoot. Partners
Equity Task Force worked with its valued partners to launch the #EqualPayCA awareness campaign. Our goal is to educate the public and provide resources to both employers and job seekers on the causes of the pay gap and how they can join the effort to close it. To set an example, we have partnered with 13 major companies that have pledged to conduct annual reviews of their pay structures and promotion policies to ensure women are being treated fairly in the workplace. We all can play a part in making sure women receive the pay they deserve. For more information about how you help close the pay gap, please visit women.ca.gov/CaliforniaPayEquit y
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.
Dean and Dave run the place with Dean running the restaurant and Dave, a retired pharmacist, serves as Brew master.
For over twenty five years the San Marcos Brewery and Grill has been one of the pioneer brewpubs in this, the World capital of craft brewing, San Diego County. The main artery of San Diego’s craft brew industry is “Hop Hiway” AKA hiway 78, and San Marcos is at its heart. While the “no cook” menu does not include any of Dave’s brew, you will surely want to share a flight with your dining partner.

The Basics of Citizenship 101
Within the next 20 years, our nation will be in serious trouble. The World War II, Korean War, and Vietnam War veterans and most of their families will be gone. Why is that important? They represent the last of our society who received a rounded civic education, witnessed the effects of geopolitics, and had an understanding of basic American citizenship.
For those in today’s society under 40 years old, most received no, or hardly any basics in American history, civics, and world geography. Ask any from this age group if they can answer simple questions immigrants get when they are going through their citizenship routine and you might be shocked at the answers or lack thereof you may receive.
Encinitas resident and actor Richard Dreyfus has been traveling throughout America, talking to anyone who’ll listen about the importance of teaching basic civics in our elementary and high schools. We have college students today who can’t name their representatives in Washington D.C., how many members make up the U.S. Senate, who’s the vice president, in what city is their state capital, where is the United Nations building, or name at least three of our founding fathers.
Late night owls who a few years back watched host Jay Leno on the “Tonight Show” will recall his “Jay Walking” routines where he stood out on the street asking young people basic questions about our society and government, receiving ridiculous and downright stupid answers. While Leno’s audience laughed, most of us were incredulous hearing how ignorant many young people of today really are.
Sadly, too many from our latest generations haven’t a clue. It isn’t their fault – it’s ours for allowing our educational systems to break down. Our university faculties are more concerned about providing “safe” space than making sure students understand our Bill of Rights, and what prompted Thomas Jefferson to write the Declaration of Independence. Why did we fight World War II – and more importantly – who won?
Now, you might think these are exaggerated questions, but try posing some of them to young people of today.
A few months back I had a short chat with Dreyfus. He is adamant about putting basic civics back into the curriculum of today’s elementary and high schools – details every college student should know. The Oscar-winning actor is a man on a mission to educate our youth about what makes America work.
It is surprising, maybe even shocking, the lack of civic education our schools fail to provide students about government and citizenship. Simple things like what is a “republic?” The difference between a democratic government and one that is a monarch or a fascist dictatorship. How many people in today’s society know what the “Electoral College” is and what importance it played in the elections of 2000 and 2016?
They don’t know what they don’t know. Remember this: Young people today will be in charge of the nation’s purse strings of tomorrow. They will be, or already are, voting. Wouldn’t you like for them to know what they’re doing? TEST YOURSELF -- To test yourself and anyone else you might want to query, try the below – all are from the basic citizenship test given to immigrants before being naturalized U.S. citizens. Every voter should be able to answer at least half of these basic questions. 1. Who is in charge of the executive branch? 2. What is freedom of religion? . 3. How old do citizens have to be to vote for President?
4. If both the President and the Vice President can no longer serve, who becomes President?
5. What is the political party of the President now? 6. Who lived in America before the Europeans arrived? 7. What is an amendment?
8. Who makes federal laws?
9. What ocean is on the West Coast of the United States? 10. Name one U.S. territory.
11. Who was President during World War I?
12. What did the Declaration of Independence do?
13. Who does a U.S. Senator represent?
14. How many states make up the United States?
15. What is the supreme law of the land? SCAG SEZ: A not-too-bright neighbor keeps complaining about being in debt over his head. I'd like to tell him it's because he didn't use it. – Cecil Scaglione, Mature Life Features.

Guest Speaker Craig Missakian at Carlsbad Republican Women’s Meeting – On Tuesday, April 23rd, the Carlsbad Republican Women will welcome former Assistant U.S. Attorney, Craig Missakian as the Keynote Speaker. Missakian is a well-known trial lawyer and former state and federal prosecutor. He has earned national and international attention for prosecutions that included terrorism and environmental crimes, software piracy, organized crime, and public corruption. At the luncheon, Missakian will present, “The Prosecution of Chi Mak: Taking Down a Chinese Spy who Stole Valuable U.S.
Secrets.” In 2007, Missakian co-tried the case of Chi Mak, a Chinese national who controlled a spy ring targeting some of the U.S. Navy’s most closely guarded technologies. Commentator Lou Dobbs described it as the most significant espionage prosecution in a generation and Washington Times writer Bill Gertz featured the case in his book “Enemies.” Attorney General Michael Mukasey subsequently awarded Missakian and the other team members the Attorney General’s Award for Distinguished Service, one of the U.S. Department of Justice’s highest honors, for their work on this case. Missakian also served as Deputy Chief Counsel on the U.S. House of Representatives Select Committee on Benghazi and its investigation into the 2012 terrorist attack that killed four Americans.

Reliving the 50’s & 60’s Cont. from Page 6
“Egghead” was a popular term of the 1950s and 1960s and meant an intellectual or super smart person, such as a student. However, it also meant an intellectual person who was so self-absorbed in academics that they became “out of touch” with the ordinary person. Richard Nixon called Adlai Stevenson an “egghead” during the 1952 U. S. presidential race. THE SLANG “SOCK HOP” IN THE ’50s & ’60s MEANT. A. A soft drink. B. A teenage place to dance. C. A foot-race wearing socks.
You’re right on the money if you chose “B” a place or venue for teenagers to dance during the 1950s and 1960s to popular rock ‘n’ roll music. “Sock hops” were held as early as 1944 but really exploded on the American scene when rock ‘n’ roll band Danny and the Juniors sang “At the Hop” in 1957 on Dick Clark’s hugelypopular American Bandstand TV show! The Philadelphia group “The Juvenairs” took Dick Clark’s suggestion to change their name to “Danny and the Juniors,” and also to change their song title from “Do the Bop” to “At the Hop,” since American Bandstand was a national version of a “sock hop” dance venue. In just one week, “At the Hop” hit the Billboard pop charts. One month later it was the No. 1 record in America! Danny and the Juniors (a band of 14 and 15-year-old teenagers) were world famous! WHAT WAS A “JUKEBOX”? A. Juice in plastic boxes. B. Boxed candy called “Jukes.” C. Music-playing device.
Correct answer is “C.” While jukeboxes have been around a long time, they became a popular and familiar fixture during the 1950s and 1960s in malt shops, bars, and restaurants. Jukeboxes could be large, colorful free-standing machines or small enough to sit on restaurant tables. They were coin-operated with a variety of songs selected by pushing buttons, letters, and numbers. At one time, three-quarters of the records produced in America went into jukeboxes! “MELTS IN YOUR MOUTH, NOT IN YOUR HANDS.” A. Hershey’s Kisses. B. Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. C. M&Ms.
The right answer is “C” for M&M candy. M&Ms is the flagship
candy of the Mars Wrigley candy empire and was first introduced in 1941. But, in 1954, a most ingenious ad campaign included the words: “Melts in your mouth, not in your hands!” It is officially the longest-lasting promotional slogan by Mars Wrigley Confectionary Co., combined with being the most profitable slogan for any candy during its day. SUMMARY. America’s 1950s and 1960s era reshaped and influenced the world-at-large. Last year, in 2018, the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC), examined 5 countries that redefined and influenced world cultures. The United States was among the foremost in its sustained power of setting cultural trends, fads, lifestyle, music, movies, and its overall enduring influence.
Despite our flaws and imperfections, no other country on Earth is as admired, imitated, or dreamed about by foreign immigrants, than the United States of America. It has often been said, but bears repeating here: “Democracy is the worst form of government, except for all the others.”
From our hot-rod cars, palm trees and beaches, to our Hollywood movies, skyscrapers, and rural farmlands of middle-America, and from our redwood forests to the Blue Ridge mountains, we remain the stuff of dreams for foreigners who risk life-and-death just for the privilege of living “The American Dream.” Our music, our slang, our popular culture continues to resonate across every international time zone, and across all hemispheres. Even our simplest and unique pleasures, such as our rock ‘n’ roll invention, is often glorified and embraced by foreign lands. “Before Elvis there was nothing,” John Lennon of the Beatles stated. Lennon shared a most precious part of his being: “Those who picked up paint brushes wanted to be Van Gogh. I wanted to be Elvis. Nothing affected me until I first heard Elvis. If there hadn’t been Elvis, there wouldn’t have been the Beatles.” Lennon then summed up his inner-most feelings: “When I heard Heartbreak Hotel it was so great I couldn’t speak. I always wanted to be this tough James Dean type, but Elvis was bigger than religion in my life.”
The Beatles went on to imitate and remain inspired by other American rock ‘n’ roll legends such as Roy Orbison, Little
Richard, Chuck Berry, the Beach Boys, Carl Perkins and countless others. We often forget or take for granted what our heritage and culture means to others.
Today in China, where over 1.4billion people live, Elvis Presley enjoys an almost god-like following. It is there, in this remote land where he is nicknamed “Mao Wang” which translates to “Cat King.” The Cat King moniker derives from Elvis’ down-home southern nickname “The Hillbilly Cat,” and from the title of his album: “Elvis, the Hillbilly Cat.”
Such trivia is often better known by foreigners than even our own American fans. For all our faults and imperfections, we are still the greatest nation on Earth. Lincoln had it right when he said we are: “The Last Best Hope of the World.” Compared to the rest of the world, America remains a shining beacon of unlimited freedom and the God-given dignity to pursue your fondest dreams. I hope to see many of my fellow Americans at Cruisin’ Grand this year. If you see me, please stop and give me the honor and privilege of meeting you in person. God bless our country, and God bless you – each and every one!

Important Giant Panda Announcement – The San Diego Zoo is announcing that their long term panda loan has come to an end, and as part of the agreement, it’s time for them to return home to China. These pandas, although beloved by San Diegans, are native to China and treasured by the people of that country. San Diego Zoo's giant panda program began in 1996 and has made significant contributions to the conservation of this iconic species. We are very proud of our past success, and we also recognize it is time to move forward as we repatriate these pandas to their homeland and address new conservation challenges for their species and others. We are currently in conversations with our colleagues in China to determine how our panda program will proceed over the next 25 years. The giant panda habitat at the Zoo will be open for guest visitation until April 27, 2019. Pandacam will be turned off at the same time, as the pandas are prepared for their journey home. Please celebrate the success of the panda program and share your memories and best wishes for the future of the program on your favorite social media channel using #Pandas4Ever. Thank you for supporting San Diego Zoo Global and for being a special friend to wildlife around the world.

Kalista is pet of the week at your Rancho Coastal Humane Society. She’s a 7 year old, 63 pound, female, Siberian Husky mix.
Kalista is a smart dog with lots of energy. She needs a family that will keep her active physically and mentally. Kalista was transferred from another shelter through the FOCAS (Friends of County Animal Shelters) program.
The $75 adoption fee for Kalista includes medical exams, vaccinations, spay, and registered microchip. For more information call 760-753-6413, visit Rancho Coastal Humane Society at 389 Requeza Street in Encinitas, or log on to SDpets.org.
Max is a 10-year-old Briard mix looking for a new home. He was surrendered to SDHS after his previous owner passed away. This senior doggie is now looking for a second chance with a caring family. He is very shy and will need some time to warm up to new places and faces. Max would be happiest as the only dog in an adult-only home. If you put in the time, Max will reward you with love and companionship. Meet Max at our Escondido Campus today. His adoption fee includes his neuter, current vaccinations, permanent microchip identification, a certificate for a free veterinary exam, waived enrollment fee for medical insurance from PetFirst and a license for residents in the city limits of Carlsbad, Del Mar, Encinitas, Escondido, Imperial Beach, Oceanside, Poway, San Diego, San Marcos, Santee, Solana Beach and Vista.

Litter Box Issues: This is the number one feline behavioral issue. If it’s happening to you, the first step is to see your vet to rule out a health problem. If your cat gets a clean bill of health, here are some other things to consider: Number of boxes. Give your cats enough litterboxes so they don’t have to fight over them or use a dirty box. One per cat plus one more is a good rule to follow. Box type. Your cat might not like the litter box you’ve chosen. If you have an older cat or tiny kitten, make sure the sides of the box are low enough for the cat to easily navigate. A flat cement-mixing tray from your local hardware store can be a life-saver in these cases. For large cats, make sure that the box is at least one and a half times their body length. Litter issues. If you’re using a scented litter, switch to an unscented one. Try a soft, clumping litter if you’re not using that already. You can also experiment with several boxes using different litter types to see what your cat prefers. Cleanliness of the box. Scoop the box as frequently as you can (at least twice a day, but more is even better). Make sure you wash it thoroughly with soap and water at least once a week. Box location. If you suspect your cat is having trouble making it to the box in time (or is simply too lazy to walk a far distance), try moving the box closer to the places she likes to hang out. Make sure the box is far away from her food and water bowls. Cats do not like to go to the bathroom where they eat (and who could blame them?). Triggering event. Your cat might have developed a negative association with the litter box. Never yell or punish a cat for going outside the box. She might connect your anger with the box itself and avoid it even more. In multi-cat households, one cat might launch a sneak attack on another cat trying to enter the box, which can cause
them to avoid it. Additional training tips and other behavioral resources can be found on our website. Upcoming Training Classes for puppies/dogs: Puppy Play Groups; SDHS San Diego Campus: Saturday, April 13, 9am; Sunday, April 14, 10:15am and 11:45am; Saturday, April 27, 9am; Sunday, April 28, 10:15am and 11:45am. Puppy Play Group is a great opportunity for your puppy (8-16 weeks) to learn social skills with other puppies in a safe and supervised environment. Trainers ensure each puppy is having positive experiences. Periods of play alternate with breaks and you have time to ask professional trainer any questions you have about puppy training. Requirements: at least one round of vaccinations to attend. Cost $20/per session. Call the Humane Society at 619.299.7012 for other dog training classes. For any behavior-related questions regarding your pet(s), email firstname.lastname@example.org or call the Helpline at 619.299.7012, ext. 2244.

The Pastor Says...
Pastor Hal Seed New Song Community Church, Oceanside The Odds of Easter
On April 21 over 2 billion people will gather to celebrate the Resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. What are the odds that anyone would come back from death, much less do so without any medical help, after suffering a beating of 39 lashes from a Roman soldier, being declared dead by professional executioner, wrapped in 200 pounds of spice and linen, and sealed behind a two-ton stone? Jesus rose against all odds. Even more unlikely: no less than 24 incidents that would happen within 48 hours of Messiah’s death were predicted 700 years before he was born. Here are a dozen of these prophecies and their fulfillment. He would:
1. be successful: Isaiah 52:13 Revelation 1:18. 2. be disfigured: Isaiah 52:14 Mark 15:15. 3. be pierced: Isaiah 53:5 - John 19:34. 4. be despised: Isaiah 53:3 – Matthew 27:21-22. 5. take our punishment: Isaiah 53:6 – Mark 15:34. 6. remain silent when oppressed: Isaiah 53:7 – Matthew 26:62-63. 7. be cut off from the living: Isaiah 53:8 – Ephesians 4:9. 8. occupy a rich man’s grave: Isaiah 53:9 – John 19:38-42. 9. see the light again: Isaiah 53:11– Mark 16:16. 10. willingly submit: Isaiah 53:12 - Luke 22:42. 11. be counted among the rebels: Isaiah 53:12 - Mark 15:7-9. 12. intercede for those rebels: Isaiah 53:12 – Luke 23:34. No wonder so many people believe and follow Jesus today! His death and resurrection were predicted, documented, supernatural and sacrificial. Each of Isaiah’s prophecies came true. In 1946, a copy of the Isaiah scroll dating from 100 B.C. was found in Qumran and is on display today in the National Museum of Israel. I visited the document last month, along with thousands of others. I hope you’ll visit a local church this Easter, along with billions of others.

Escondido • Mayor Paul “Mac” Mcnamara My Weekly Greeting!
I need to start by talking about a couple things that happened last week. One was attending an Energy Star award presentation for Bimbo bakeries here in Escondido. Congratulations! The other was seeing how many dedicated residents we had apply for the Library Board. It will be a tough decision. You couldn’t help but feel proud of our city at both events.
This week I had the opportunity to do two ride-alongs with our police department. One was with the COPPS unit that deals principally with homeless and the other was with the gang unit. While no city wants either of those challenges, every city has them. The good news is that we have some amazing professionals in our police department who deal with these challenges in an incredible and professional manner. It’s tough to find the right balance among compassion, firmness and empathy. Our police officers could give lessons on how to do it. I think we should all feel proud of our police department. Thank you. Semper Fi,
Mac - Paul P. McNamara, Mayor of Escondido
P-51 - An outstanding, true tale..... read to the surprise ending!
This 1967 true story is of an experience by a young 12 year old lad in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. It is about the vivid memory of a privately rebuilt P-51 from WWII and its famous owner/pilot.
In the morning sun, I could not believe my eyes. There, in our little airport, sat a majestic P-51. They said it had flown in during the night from some U.S. airport, on its way to an air show. The pilot had been tired, so he just happened to choose Kingston for his stop over. It was to take to the air very soon. I marveled at the size of the plane, dwarfing the Pipers and Canucks tied down by her. It was much larger than in the movies. She glistened in the sun like a bulwark of security from days gone by. The pilot arrived by cab, paid the
driver, and then stepped into the pilot's lounge. He was an older man; his wavy hair was gray and tossed. It looked like it might have been combed, say, around the turn of the century. As he passed by I noticed his flight jacket was checked, creased and worn - it smelled old and genuine. Old Glory was prominently sewn to its shoulders. He projected a quiet air of proficiency and pride devoid of arrogance. He filed a quick flight plan to Montreal ("Expo-67 Air Show") then walked across the tarmac.
After taking several minutes to perform his walk-around check, the tall, lanky man returned to the flight lounge to ask if anyone would be available to stand by with fire extinguishers while he "flashed the old bird up, just to be safe." Though only 12 at the time I was allowed to stand by with an extinguisher after brief instruction on its use -- "If you see a fire, point, then pull this lever!", he

Oceanside • Mayor Peter Weiss Famed Poet to Appear
Join the City of Oceanside to welcome poet Karla Cordero for two special events. On Friday, April 12, at 4:00 p.m., hosting a workshop at the Mission Branch Library at 3861 Mission Blvd. On Saturday, April 27, at 11:00 a.m., sharing and reading from her recent book, How to Pull Apart the Earth, at the Civic Center Library. Karla Cordero is a descendant of the Chichimeca people from northern Mexico; a Chicana poet, educator, and activist; raised along the borderlands of Calexico, CA. Karla teaches creative writing and composition at San Diego City and MiraCosta colleges. Her commitment to bridging education and community is demonstrated in her role as the founder of Voice 4 Change: A Spoken Word Showcase, inviting nationally award-winning writers to share their narratives of survival and celebration of diversity. How to Pull Apart the Earth is her first book and is published by Not a Cult publishing. said as he smiled.. (I later became a firefighter, but that's another story.)
The air around the exhaust manifolds shimmered like a mirror from fuel fumes as the huge prop started to rotate. One manifold, then another, and yet another barked -- I stepped back with the others. In moments the Packard-built Merlin engine came to life with a thunderous roar. Blue flames knifed from her manifolds with an arrogant snarl. I looked at the others' faces; there was no concern. I lowered the bell of my extinguisher. One of the guys signaled to walk back to the lounge. We did.
Several minutes later we could hear the pilot doing his pre-flight run-up. He'd taxied to the end of runway 19, out of sight. All went quiet for several seconds. We ran to the second story deck to see if we could catch a glimpse of the P-51 as she started down the runway. We could not. There we stood, eyes fixed to a spot half way down 19.Then a roar ripped across the field, much louder than
before. Like a furious hell spawn set loose -- something mighty this way was coming. "Listen to that thing!" said the controller.
In seconds the Mustang burst into our line of sight. It's tail was already off the runway and it was moving faster than anything I'd ever seen by that point on 19. Two-thirds the way down 19 the Mustang was airborne with her gear going up. The prop tips were supersonic. We clasped our ears as the Mustang climbed hellishly fast into the circuit to be eaten up by the dog-day haze We stood for a few moments, in stunned silence, trying to digest what we'd just seen. The radio controller rushed by me to the radio. "Kingston tower calling Mustang?" He looked back to us as he waited for an acknowledgment. The radio crackled, "Go ahead, Kingston." "Roger, Mustang. Kingston tower would like to advise

the circuit is clear for a lowlevel pass." I stood in shock because the controller had just, more or less, asked the pilot to return for an impromptu air show! The controller looked at us. "Well, What?" He asked."I can't let that guy go without asking can I? I couldn't forgive myself!" The radio crackled once again, "Kingston, do I have permission for a low level pass, east to west, across the field?" "Roger, Mustang, the circuit is clear for an east to west pass." "Roger, Kingston, I'm coming out of 3,000 feet, stand by."
We rushed back onto the secondstory deck, eyes fixed toward the eastern haze. The sound was subtle at first, a high-pitched whine, a muffled screech, a distant scream. Moments later the P-51 burst through the haze. Her airframe straining against positive G's and gravity. Her wing tips spilling contrails of condensed air, prop-tips again supersonic. The burnished bird blasted across the eastern margin of the field shredding and tearing the air. At about 500 mph and 150 yards from where we stood she passed with the old American pilot saluting. Imagine. A salute! I felt like laughing; I felt like crying; she glistened; she screamed; the building
3. The loss of data and hundreds of millions of dollars in repair expense as Microsoft’s employs Windows10 Home users as “crash test dummies” to “beta test” incompletely tested Windows10 updates prior to releasing the updates to Professional and Enterprise customers.
Business and academic “network administrators” typically manage the settings or “rules” that control Internet access on Apple and Windows computers. Individual users, not subject to network browsing “rules,” retain the default settings on their browsers. Until recently Google saw no reason to alert users that their Chrome browser settings were being “managed.” Their logic being that users in “managed” networks were aware that Internet access was “managed” and users in non-managed environments had no need for notification. In the latest Chrome update Google inserted an applet that tells a user if their Chrome access is being “managed” (changed from the default settings). To determine whether or not your Chrome is being managed simply left click on the three vertical dots at the upper right hand corner in your Chrome browser. If you shook; my heart pounded. Then the old pilot pulled her up and rolled, and rolled, and rolled out of sight into the broken clouds and indelible into my memory.
I've never wanted to be an American more than on that day! It was a time when many nations in the world looked to America as their big brother. A steady and evenhanded beacon of security who navigated difficult political water with grace and style; not unlike the old American pilot who'd just flown into my memory. He was proud, not arrogant, humble, not a braggart, old and honest, projecting an aura of America at its best. That America will return one day! I know it will! It may be beginning now. Until that time though, I'll just send off this story. Call it a loving reciprocal salute to a Country, and

If there is no “managed” statement you are clear. If you do have the statement, it could be a hacker but it also could be an innocent, minor change made by something you installed. If you get the “managed” statement give us a call and we will give you the latest information as to what action, if any, you need to take. Microsoft introduced Windows10S in late 2017. It is sometimes referred to as Windows10 Lite. Microsoft claims the S doesn’t stand for anything but we prefer to think of it as Windows10 “Snapple” because it was a very transparent attempt to emulate Apples strategy in controlling and monetizing not
only the OS but also all the applications. Microsoft boasted that Snapple boots up quicker and is more secure, but it’s only fast because it’s a stripped down Windows version and it’s only secure because you can’t load anything but Microsoft Store products. No Chrome, Firefox, iTunes, Photoshop, Adobe Reader/Flash or many peripheral device drivers. When users began to complain Microsoft told them that they could upgrade to Win10 Pro for only $50. When that offer went over like the proverbial “Coprolite in the Punchbowl,” Microsoft relented and allowed free upgrade from Snapple to Win10 Pro. Next week: Public outcry forces Microsoft to delay its planned Windows10 mandatory “updates“ and to offer new delay and defer options to Windows10 Home users.
