If he didn’t like you, or was just in a mischievous mood, he thought nothing of running over your toes with his wheelchair. And he did just that. And members of royalty were no exception.

But by the official scorecard from media giants, Stephen Hawking had every right. As political analyst and senior reporter, Ashley Feinberg of the Huffington Post wrote: “One of my favorite things about Stephen Hawking is that he was mean to all the right people! They deserved it!” The The Paper Paper -- 760.747.7119 760.747.7119

STEPHEN HAWKING WANTED US TO REMEMBER POWER OF HUMOR IN HIS LIFE. The recent passing of one of the most influential and recognized scientists of our era, Stephen Hawking, left our world in great mourning and sadness. World leaders eulogized the great scientist in glowing, but tragic and sad terms.

Yet, rarely, did our spinning planet of inhabitants remember his wish to embrace his legacy of humor after he left our midst. But his own flesh-and-blood progeny, Hawking’s immediate family, would not forget his comical wit and how it

seemed to have empowered him throughout his lifetime.

individuals whom he thought deserving of retribution.

World-renowned theoretical physicist, Stephen Hawking, always had a twinkle in his eye, and a sense of humor that earned him an impish charm, a mischievous glint in his eye, and a ready wheelchair at his command which he sometimes used to pass judgement over the toes of those

RAN OVER THE TOES OF PRINCE CHARLES. In the 2013

After his death, Stephen Hawking’s own surviving children knew how important humor was to their father’s life. Hawking, himself, was fond of repeating: “Life would be tragic if it weren’t funny.”

And he did. Run over toes, that is. Putting dubious notches on his wheelchair as a gunslinger might put on his Colt .45 revolver. In essence, Stephen Hawking became a legendary crusader of sorts, but unlike Don Quixote who tilted his lance at windmills and imaginary foes, Hawking tilted his wheels at the real toes of people he encountered – people who may have annoyed him. Or so the story goes.

biography titled, “Stephen Hawking: An Unfettered Mind,” the book’s author, Kitty Ferguson, chronicled that in 1976, Prince Charles got his feet crushed beneath the wheels of Stephen Hawking. It happened at Prince Charles’s induction into the Royal Society, as biographer Kitty Ferguson explains: “The prince was intrigued by Hawking’s wheelchair, and Hawking, twirling it around to demonstrate its capabilities, carelessly ran over Prince Charles’s toes!” And it was, allegedly, no accident, although it was meant to seem like one. As Ferguson further explains: “People who annoyed him found themselves a target.” Ostensibly, Hawking humorously passed judgment on people of questionable character by means of his wheelchair, a comical way of tweaking his nose at pretentious social gatherings and the unwarranted idolization of personages who dwelled in ‘ivory towers.’

The award-winning and international bestselling author, Kitty Ferguson, knew Stephen Hawking’s inner intentions better than most. She helped Hawking edit his 2001 book “The Universe In A Nutshell” and had an insider’s ear to his roguish and humorous side. And also, an insider’s ear as to why he disliked some people, or certain pretentious customs and pompous social conventions.

Give Us This Day Our Daily Chuckle

Although Stephen Hawking had accepted an honorary fellowship from the Royal Society of Arts, in time, he grew more distant and more critical of the royal concept of knighthood as he openly expressed to the print media: “I dislike the whole concept.”

When the time came, Hawking would publicly turn down the title of knighthood.

ALLEGEDLY, WANTED TO RUN OVER THE TOES OF MARGARET THATCHER. Stephen Hawking soon became a resounding critic of the British government for what he believed was a “mismanagement” of science funding, over which he was abundantly quoted in newspapers worldwide. It was rumored that the out-spoken Stephen Hawking had humorously stated that he regretted not getting the chance to run over the toes of England’s Conservative Prime Minister, Margaret Thatcher.

When Stephen Hawking was later asked in subsequent interviews if he would truly have relished the opportunity of running over Thatcher’s toes, Hawking smiled slyly and comically quipped in his defense: “A malicious rumour. I’ll run over anyone who repeats it.” HUMOROUS WHEELCHAIR LEGACY. Stephen Hawking’s purported desire to run over the toes of people that annoyed him with his wheelchair, soon crossed over into wider public awareness and even into pop culture, itself. Hawking never "When we drink, we get drunk. When we get drunk, we fall asleep.

When we fall asleep, we commit no sin. When we commit no sin, we go to heaven. So, let's all get drunk and go to heaven". George Bernard Shaw

This week, a compendium of wit, wisdom and neat stuff you can tell at parties. Enjoy! The Wonders of Beer

Sometimes, when I reflect on all the beer I drink, I feel ashamed. Then I look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I did not drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. I think it is better to drink this beer and let their dreams come true, than be selfish and worry about my liver. Dave Barry

"24 hours in a day and 24 beers in a case. Coincidence?

I think not". H. L. Mencken

"Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy". Benjamin Franklin

"Without question, the greatest invention in the history of mankind is beer.

Oh, I grant you that the wheel was also a fine invention, but the wheel does not go nearly as well with pizza". Dave Barry

To some it is a six-pack. To me, it is a Support Group. Salvation in a can. Leo Durocher

One night at Cheers, a TV Sitcom, Cliff Clavin, said to his buddy, Norm Peterson:

(seriously) denied rumors that he purposely ran over the celebrated toes of famous people but, in fact, he rather enjoyed and further fueled such rumors, himself. In 2014 the great scientist eagerly agreed to make a ‘live’ cameo appearance in a Monty Python video where he is shown running down a rival physicist, Brian Cox, in his wheelchair and then wheeling away singing “Python’s Galaxy Song.”

It is no stretch to say that Hawking’s view on humor was the pivotal force that kept him alive so long. Who best to measure the strength and veracity of those words than Stephen Hawking, himself, who swore by the redeeming power of humor in his life: “Keeping an active mind has been vital to my survival, as has been maintaining a sense of humour.”

HE LOVED TO DANCE IN HIS WHEELCHAIR & WAS RECKLESS SPEEDSTER ON WHEELS! Dr. Kristine M. Larsen, professor of physics and astronomy at Central Connecticut State University, and author of “Stephen Hawking: A Biography, and Cosmology 101” recalls how Hawking would not allow his confinement to a wheelchair in preventing him from having fun: “He definitely liked to dance in his wheelchair on the dance floor.” Hawking was also notorious as a ‘speedster’ in his wheelchair chariot, as Professor Larsen amusingly reminisces: “I remember seeing him wiz through conferences in his wheelchair. After one incident where he crashed his wheelchair and broke his hip, he also joked about being a bad

"Well, ya see, Norm, it's like this ... A herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo. And when the herd is hunted, it is the slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first. This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole, because the general speed and health of the whole group keeps improving by the regular killing of the weakest members. In much the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells. Excessive intake of alcohol, as we know, kills brain cells.

But, naturally, it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first.

In this way, regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. That's why you always feel smarter after a few beers". Are you a Democrat, a Republican, or a Southerner?

Here’s a little test that will help you decide.

driver.”

Another amusing Stephen Hawking story is recalled by Dr. Robert A. McNees, associate professor of physics at Loyola University at Chicago: “I remember spending a night of dinner and drinks, then karaoke with Stephen Hawking.” Professor McNees asked how late Hawking and his nurse were planning to stay out. Hawking’s nurse replied: “Until the batteries on the wheelchair get low.” HUMOR POSSIBLY THE KEY TO HIS LONG SURVIVAL WITH ALS DISEASE. Hawking’s playfulness, zest for life, and his constant comedy wit has been said by many to have been the “hidden key for his long survival against great odds.” As The Washington Post stated: “His humor was deployed against a terrible prognosis.”

Hawking was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also known as “Lou Gehrig’s Disease,” when he was only 21 in 1963 and was not expected to see his 25th birthday. Against all odds, he lived to age 76. The great genius of science often said, himself, that maintaining a sense of humor was a vital key to his long survival. He was one of the longest-living persons afflicted with the deadly ALS. Humor was the seasoning in his life which made living more palatable, and Stephen Hawking immersed himself in humor to the point where it

became almost a second skin. He rivaled the best standup comics of his day, causing them to turn green with envy as he even ‘out-bested’ them at their own game with spontaneous wit, instead of using cue cards and carefully-rehearsed punchlines as they did. While giving a lecture at Arizona State University in April of 2011, the topic of discussion was the “Eureka Moment Scientific Discovery.” At one point, Hawking responded to the audience: “I wouldn’t compare it to sex, but it lasts longer.” The buzz around the scientific watercooler was: “Never be late to a Stephen Hawking question-andanswer lecture. You’ll learn something and die laughing at the same time!”

“THE FUNNIEST MAN I EVER MET.” No other scientist in history was funnier than Stephen Hawking; there is not even a close second that even shows up as a faint blip on the radar screen. Oscar-winning actor, Eddie Redmayne, who portrayed Stephen Hawking in the 2014 film, “The Theory of Everything,” said after Stephen Hawking’s passing: “We have lost a truly beautiful mind, an astonishing scientist and the funniest man I have ever had the pleasure to meet.”

Mighty powerful words, indeed. But even the world press repeated the catch-phrase, over and over, regarding Stephen Hawking’s funny bone: “HUMOR AS VAST AS THE UNI-

VERSE.”

Stephen Hawking became such a household name that even the most famous comedians would refer to him. When Stephen Hawking was going through his divorce, comedian Jay Leno of “The Tonight Show” fame joked: “Stephen Hawking is getting a divorce! That’s scary. If the smartest guy in the world can’t figure out women, we’re screwed!” (Stephen Hawking first married Jane Wilde in 1965, after his 1963 diagnosis with motor neurone disease. He divorced in 1995 and married Elaine Mason the same year in September of 1995. Hawking would divorce again in 2006.)

HE LOVED THE ART OF HUMOR. Stephen Hawking loved the art of humor so much that, more than any other colleague before or since, he made himself readily available to appear on various comedy sitcoms. To wit: Hawking ‘appeared’ in cartoon form on the comedy series “The Simpsons” in which he did ‘voiceovers’ for his part. Hawking’s hilarious appearance on The Simpsons rocketed his fame to stratospheric heights. On The Simpsons sitcom, Hawking tells the dad, Homer Simpson: “Your theory of a doughnut-shaped universe is intriguing, Homer. I may have to steal it.”

Hawking also appeared as himself on television’s popular “The Big Bang Theory” where he asks the physicist character, Sheldon Cooper: “What do Sheldon Cooper and a black hole have in common? They both suck.”

John Buell, 76th Assembly District Republican Caucus Chair, and Michael Schwartz, Executive Director for SD County Gun Owners PAC, to speak at North County Republican Coalition! On Monday, April 16th, the North County Republican Coalition (NCRC) presents two local Republican activists speak about important issues to North County voters. NCRC welcomes John Buell, 76th Assembly District Republican Caucus Chair, and Michael Schwartz, Executive Director for SD County Gun Owners PAC. John Buell will focus on the importance of Republican Get Out the Vote efforts in 2018. It is a critical year for all North County Republicans to get involved and volunteer. John was elected to the San Diego Republican Central Committee in 2016 for a 4-year term. He is a strong advocate for free people and free markets. John owns and operates a small custom skylight fabrication company employing nine people, and is married with two small children, homeschooled by his wife. Michael Schwartz will discuss "The March for their Lies," addressing current 2nd Amendment issues in the U.S. Michael is the founder and Executive Director for San Diego County Gun Owners PAC. He has served on the Executive Board of the San Diego County Republican Party and the San Diego NRA Members Council. Michael’s background is in financial sales and services and left the industry to launch SDCGO after 16 years.

Ever the quipster, Stephen Hawking commented: “I am probably better known for my appearances on The Simpsons and on The Big Bang Theory than I am for my scientific discoveries.”

There seemed no end to Hawking’s “rock star” status. The rock group Pink Floyd would even use his distinctive synthesized voice for the introduction to “Keep Talking” on their 1994 album, The Division Bell.

No other scientist would become so popular and so loved by the common people, around the world, as with Stephen Hawking. Hawking once tried to explain his unprecedented popularity with dry humor: “No one can resist the idea of a crippled genius.”

HE WAS NATURALLY FUNNY WITHOUT COMEDY WRITERS. Stephen Hawking did not need to read-off television cue cards to be funny. When the great scientist appeared on TV’s “Last Week Tonight with John Oliver” on April 27, 2014, Hawking did not need the aid of comedy script writers. When TV host, John Oliver, interviewed him, asking Stephen Hawking: “You’ve stated that there could be an infinite number of parallel universes. Does that mean there’s a universe out there where I am smarter than you?” Stephen Hawking’s genius for wit and humor let loose a verbal come-

back that was nothing short of brilliant: “Yes. And also a universe where you’re funny.”

Stephen Hawking’s clever and spontaneous retort made world headlines, in different languages, across our great Blue Marble.

TV host, John Oliver, would later reflect on that exchange: “Stephen Hawking was a brilliant man, but he was also an incredibly funny man. It was a huge privilege to waste some of his time, and I’ll never forget the twinkle in his eye here.” You never had to be a hardcore scientist to enjoy the simple joy and laughter of Stephen Hawking, comedianat-large.

BOTH FUNNY AND FACTUAL ON A VARIETY OF TOPICS. Stephen Hawking often voiced his genius in a manner that was both fact and funny, at the same time. From the four corners of the world, Stephen Hawking tickled the funny bone of countless millions of ordinary, nonscientific people, all the while making science funny and enlightening. Herewith, translated into various languages, are some of Stephen Hawking’s scientific theories, all richly sugar-coated in undeniable humor. 1. “I don’t consider myself sick, although my sense of humor is sometimes referred to as such.” (National Post interview.) 2. “I believe alien life is quite com-

On 04/07/2017 at approximately 0314 hours, Officers with the City of Carlsbad Police Department were conducting extra patrol of Sage Creek High School when a suspicious vehicle attempted to make entry into the secured parking lot. The officer attempted to conduct an investigative stop on the vehicle when the driver and solo occupant fled westbound on Cannon Road towards College Boulevard. A short vehicle pursuit ensued until the 30 year old driver, later identified as Matthew Gioia from Oceanside, collided with a tree on Peninsula Drive just east of College Boulevard. Gioia fled on foot, and was eventually taken into custody after a brief struggle with officers. Gioia was transported to the hospital for medical treatment and will be booked into the Vista Detention Facility for felony evading and resisting arrest.

From the witness statements and evidence at the scene, it is believed the 2005 Honda Accord was traveling west on Valley Parkway and the 1996 Toyota Tacoma was traveling east on Valley Parkway, just north of Beven Drive prior to the head-on collision. The cause of the collision is still under investigation. It is unknown at this time if alcohol or drugs were a factor in this collision. The traffic investigation is ongoing

Such was not the case with me. I had severe pain. Greater than I had ever had in my life. One doctor, who meant well, prescribed Oxycodone for me. Damn near killed me! Gave me vertigo so bad I could barely stand up. From that point on I swore off of opiods.

Great pain relief did come to me thanks to a pal whose husband has some heavy health issues and related pain. She offered to bring me cannabis oil. I’ve experienced cannabis, many years ago . . . and don’t regret having tried it. But I initially declined the offer, saying that I wasn’t looking for a “high.” I just wanted pain relief.

She explained the cannabis oil she was offering did not have more than 0.03% THC, the ingredient that gives “the buzz.”

Jim has done an outstanding job as Mayor since 2006. He is a Captain for Delta Airlines and is used to dealing in precision requirements and prompt and accurate decision making.

He is a SANDAG board member, San Diego Airport Board Member, Board Member with the San Diego Economic Development Corporation, Past President of the San Marcos Economic Commission. He is a member of so many boards one wonders when he has time to sleep.

I told them I had zero problem accepting their ads - that I had come to become a believer in the pain relieving benefits of cannabis oil and thought it would be criminal to deprive others who suffer great pain from having access to it. I know several others who have medical marijuana prescriptions. They use medicinal marijuana, full strength, rather than cannabis oil. It seems to work for them. They do, however, tend to get ‘high.’ Not so with cannabis oil. I prefer cannabis oil. I do not presently use it. Why? Because I’m no longer suffering excruciating pain.

Because without imperfection, neither you nor I would exist.” (“Into the Universe With Stephen Hawking,” 2010.) 5. “People who boast about their IQ are losers.” (New York Times interview, 2004.) 6. “I have noticed that even people who claim everything is ‘predetermined’ and that we can do nothing to change it, look before they cross the road.” (Black Holes and Baby Universes and Other Essays,” 1993.) 7. “Mankind’s greatest achievements have come about by talking, and its greatest failures by not talking.” (British Telecom ad, 1993.) 8. “We only have to look at ourselves to see how intelligent life might develop into something we wouldn’t want to meet.” (“Into the Universe With Stephen Hawking,” 2010.) Stephen Hawking was forever funny. He never left his cloak of humor behind wherever he traveled. His humor shielded him. Protected him. Empowered him to “live long and prosper.” Hawking once said with great amusement: “I can’t disguise myself with a wig and dark glasses – the wheelchair gives me away.” He also, realistically, kept science and fun inseparable: “If I had a time

machine, I’d visit Marilyn Monroe in her prime or drop in on Galileo as he turned his telescope to the Heavens.”

JAMES BOND, THE QUEEN OF ENGLAND, & SUPERMAN. For those countless comedians who imitated his voice, Hawking took much pleasure in it and even extended his acceptance to them. He once said of himself: “My ideal role would be to play a ‘baddie’ (villain) in a James Bond film. I think the wheelchair and the computer voice would fit the part.” (Since Stephen Hawking had lost his ability to speak in 1985, he had a voice synthesizer device attached to his wheelchair which he could activate. The ‘voice’ is that of American engineer, Dennis Klatt which, in essence, gives Stephen Hawking an American accent.) When Hawking met with the Queen of England in 2014, she was wellaware of his unbridled sense of humor and joked with Hawking: “Have you still got that American voice?” Without missing a beat, Stephen Hawking replied: “Yes, it is copyrighted, actually.”

Nevertheless, even his comic wit sometimes, inadvertently, sadly reflected back to his invalid condition which confined him to his wheelchair: “If I had to choose a superhero to be, I would pick Superman. He’s everything that I’m not.” HE THREW A PARTY FOR TIMETRAVELERS FROM THE FUTURE AND NOBODY CAME. Some of Stephen Hawking’s scientific experiments were highly unusual and often captured world headlines. Such was

the case when he secretly threw a party for time travelers from the distant future, hoping they would travel back in time to visit him!

In 2009, Stephen Hawking threw his lavish Time-Traveler Party when he poured 10 bottles of expensive Krug champagne into individual champagne flutes, complete with small plates alongside the bubbly. He even had balloons strung around the room, and ornate invitations made. As he stated after his party fizzled: “I have experimental evidence that time travel may not be possible. I gave a party for time-travelers, but I didn’t send out the invitations until (after) the party. I sat there a long time, but no one came.”

Hawking was serious in testing-out his time travel experiment and said there would still be hope for him even after he died. “I’m hoping copies of it (invitations) in one form or another will survive for many thousands of years. Maybe one day someone living in the future will find the invitation information and use a wormhole time machine to come back to my party (now in the past, on June 28, 2009), proving that time travel will, one day, be possible.” Stephen Hawking took no chances in giving directions to his 2009 Time Travelers Party. On all the invitations he included the precise coordinates including exact latitude and longitude as well as his street address, along with the very necessary disclaimer: “No RSVP required.” Theoretically, Stephen Hawking’s time-travel experiment may still be

‘out there’ still waiting to be ‘acted upon.’ As Hawking explained: “The success of this experiment depends entirely on the invitation posters existing in the future for time travelers to find it.” Regarding his time travel party not producing any visitors from the future, Hawking quipped: “What a shame. I was hoping a future Miss Universe was going to step through the door.”

A GIANT OF A MAN. Even though Stephen Hawking was a diminutive man, with a modest height of only 5’ 6 ½ inches, and weighed a mere 134 ½ pounds, he became a giant of a man in both science and in the eyes of an adoring planet of people. Sitting in his wheelchair, low off the ground at only 37-inches high he, somehow, was able to peer over the shoulders of ordinary men, even past the distant horizon far, far into the uncharted abyss. How supremely ironic that, sitting earthbound, a captive invalid in his wheelchair, Hawking’s great mind remained free and unshackled, as it took wing and penetrated into the deepest recesses of the Cosmos, contemplating the earliest beginnings of the universe’s existence, even before time, itself, existed! As Hawking explained: “Theoretical physics is one of the few fields in which being disabled is no handicap – it is all in the mind.”

No other scientist in the entire sweep

of human history was funnier than Stephen Hawking. Certainly, no other was more deeply-loved by the ordinary man, woman, and child, than Hawking, who became the ‘underdog’ who cheated death against major odds stacked against him. Expected to live only 3 to 5 years after his fatal prognosis, he lived 56 years longer than predicted, almost matching the lifespan of the average, healthy American male! All the world was truly inspired at how he triumphed; awe-struck at how he became a medical phenomenon and, in the process, Hawking gave new hope and inspiration for those struck with deadly diseases today. He was someone who gave the ordinary people in the world renewed hope, and the courage to dream again. Even more so, to make dreams a reality. He rode a hot-air balloon on his 60th birthday, and later boarded a zerogravity flight 5 years after that, on his 65 birthday celebration! In short, he became a living hero to an entire planet of Earthlings. Hawking championed the causes of the downtrodden, the sick-and-dying of our species who are often neglected, weeded-out and cast into the dustbin of life.

To those like himself, he lovingly counseled: “My advice to other disabled people would be, concentrate on things your disability doesn’t prevent you doing well, and don’t regret the things it interferes with. Don’t be disabled in spirit, as well as physically.” Hawking’s remarks to those stricken with disease and paralysis girded the earth, encircling his arms about those in pain and lost in sorrow: “Try to make sense of what you see and wonder about what makes the universe exist. Be curious, and however difficult life may seem, there is always something you can do, and succeed at. It matters that you don’t just give up.”

But never straying far from his funny bone, Hawking suddenly shifts gears when asked what he often thought about in life. He replied: “Women. They are a total mystery!” Or when asked about life’s ordinary goings-on, such as England’s 2014 soccer team’s penalty-kicking record, Hawking said to great laughter: “England couldn’t hit a cow’s ass with a banjo!”

Hawking always remained as a child, with childlike antics and a childlike curiosity which never left him. Even when confined to his wheelchair, he managed to be mischievous and comical in his antics. For example, Hawking had a mute button on his voice synthesizer where he could create a random sound. As his former assistant, Jonathan Wood, explains: “There are times he comes up with ‘random speech.’ He does it all the time and sometimes it’s totally inappropriate. I remember once he randomly typed ‘XXXX,’ which, via his speech synthesizer, sounded like: “SEX, SEX,

SEX, SEX.”

Regarding his incorrigible and mischievous ways, Stephen Hawking often confessed: “I am just a child who has never grown up.” He always wanted to leave you smiling and, at best, laughing. While most scientists in history are not known for their outlandish humorous escapes, Hawking departs their company. Hawking was funny 24/7 and tirelessly counseled: “You can lose all hope if you can’t laugh at yourself and at life in general.”

So, the next time you hear or read a eulogy of Stephen Hawking, clench your fist, close your eyes, draw in a deep breath, and hope . . . just hope, that the eulogy doesn’t forget his wish to remember his legacy of humor which helped keep him alive. As Hawking often reminded us: “Keeping an active mind has been vital to my survival, as has been maintaining a sense of humor.”

ACKNOWLEDGEMENT: I wish to thank medical specialist, Sophia Brock, who is ‘lead’ person at UCSD Multi-Specialty Clinic, in Encinitas, California. Sophia Brock oversees the UCSD facilities’ clinic flow, oversees the staff, and patient care. The 32-year-old Escondido native, Sophia Brock, is well-recognized in the medical field, working in several specialties such as orthopedics, urology, rheumatology, women’s medicine, endocrinology, colorectal surgery, general surgery and other disciplines. Brock was deeply inspired by the late Stephen Hawking and recently told me: “He was the greatest mind on Earth and a testament to how powerful the human mind can be. I remember as a little girl I was really into space. I was just fascinated. That’s when I learned about Stephen Hawking and I just was so fascinated by his theories and his story as well. He survived ALS much longer than most people – a medical phenomenon!” Sophia Brock is an ardent fan of owner/publisher, Lyle E. Davis and his weekly magazine The Paper and it was her input which inspired this cover story on Stephen Hawking. Our readership well recognizes Sophia Brock, as her photo was published along with Dr. Jonas Salk on the cover story: “Famous San Diegans and the Amazing Legacy They Left the World,” (published in The Paper on April 7, 2016). This special cover story is dedicated to Stephen Hawking’s surviving children: Robert Hawking, Lucy Hawking, and Timothy Hawking. Of them, Stephen Hawking said: “My three children have brought me great joy.”

And to all our loyal readers of The Paper, we thank you for being a valuable part of our family. Without you, we would not exist. God bless you all, each and every one. This is Friedrich’s 98th cover story for The Paper.

He is a prolific writer! Watch for number 99 & 100 coming soon!

Americans new found love for SUVs and crossovers along with a runaway love affair with pickups have placed the bread and butter model of the automobile business in jeopardy. For every winner there is a loser. The four door sedan is the main loser. The sedan has been the mainstay of this business for a long time, while other configurations come and go in popularity over time. Currently, in its fight for survival there has been a lot of remodeling design work to give the sedan a more sexy look and relabeling the sedan as a coupe. It’s still a four door sedan fighting for sales popularity. Who made the first American four door sedan? Look carefully at the picture of our 26th. President in the back seat of the first four-door in 1910. The car was built in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, by a young mastermind inventor who built a number of complex industrial wonders, including clutches for large seafaring vessels. The car’s first nick name was “Silent Sioux” because the engine was so quiet, but you could still hear it four blocks away! Name the first four-door sedan made in America. Answer on the side of column.

Wit of Stephan Hawking Cont. from Page 5

Interesting enough, in 1953, when I was a young college student, I purchased a 1931 Nash Ambassador Coupe with dual ignition, 8 cylinders with 16 spark plugs, from the family that built the first four-door sedan. This car had been in storage since 1939 and had only 21,000 careful miles. .My father was a Nash dealer. My father used it for showroom display and the occasional parade. This is how I got my start with classic cars

California Developmentally Disabled Advocacy

The Assembly Select Committee on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities works to ensure the rights and dignity of all Californians with developmental disabilities (I/DD) through advocacy and research, and by acting as an information resource for the Legislature as it develops policies impacting California’s I/DD population. I am pleased to announce that I have been asked to join in the work of this important committee. Beginning the first week in May, we will begin holding hearings at Regional Centers throughout the state to better understand the needs of the community, which numbers about 625,000 individuals. These needs include daily struggles with housing, transportation, education, employment, healthcare services and much more.

To help create a supportive environment and increase public awareness of the challenges faced by the I/DD community, I have also coauthored HR 89, which recognized March 2018 as Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month. The Resolution recognizes advocates and leaders who seek to bring people with disabilities into the conver-

sation, including groups like The ARC of San Diego, Disability Rights California, and government entities such as the California State Council on Developmental Disabilities.

Healthcare decisions should be based on the needs of those being served. By connecting directly with the I/DD community, along with their families and those who care and advocate for them, we will be gaining valuable insights into the needs of these diverse people. Through their input and help, we can develop policies that enhance and enrich the lives of some of California’s most vulnerable citizens.

If you would like to learn more about our committee and our work, you may contact our office or the members of the committee at: Select Committee on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities | Assembly Internet Minority Floor 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.

Also, I find it interesting that you've been running this publication "The Paper" for 19 years now. What is your background in journalism?

Editor’s Note: I’m a radio broadcast veteran of 25 years - on air talent, sales, management, ownership, commentator, editor, and war correspondent. We applied the experience in that media to publishing The Paper.

The reason I ask is that I find your publication very different than other local newspapers. First off, you have weekly political columnist (mayors, etc.) who keep us abreast of matters, and also pastors as well. That's quite a spread of interest that is very welcomed and sets you apart.

I think I'm correct in saying that I recognize your young writer Friedrich Gomez when he was employed at Walmart over in San Marcos where he was a cashier. Very congenial and popular with Walmart customers including me and my family. At times I would hear him speaking fluent German to many German/Austrian customers that frequented that particular Walmart. I love his writings and that's one of the reasons I pick up your weekly paper. The Paper has impacted my circle

of friends in many ways, believe it or not, especially with your advertisers. One friend switched to Geico after seeing their ads in your paper and making inquires with them. Also, we ventured to the Indian Store after seeing their full page ads in The Paper and I must confess, their Vista store is amazing and HUGE! I found it like a museum and history excursion and field trip all rolled-up into one! Another example is many of my friends have found favor and great service with Paul Van Middlesworth's Computer Factory here in San Marcos. He sure knows how to run a business according to what I've heard! Very good feedback from my acquaintances. Well, I've taken enough space here. Keep up the good work. You serve our communities well, here in North County San Diego. God bless you. You're what helps keep America great!

Henry Ford, 1919

Everyone knows Henry Ford was a pioneer in automobile manufacturing, but while he didn’t invent the automobile, Ford was the first automaker to mass produce vehicles. He created the auto assembly line, making it possible to roll out dozens of automobiles each day. At $700, nearly everyone in America could afford a Model T. Accordingly, cities, counties, states, and the federal government had to build streets and highways for cars, thus connecting the population across America. People who never had been more than 25 miles from home, were free to venture 35 to 40 miles in little more than an hour. Ford’s vehicles were the basis of a new industrial revolution, employing up to 100,000 workers. He was the undisputed world leader of industry into the first half of the 20th century.

But, as his empire expanded, Henry Ford became a troubled man. He was unabashedly anti-Semitic and said as much in scathing editorials in his weekly newspaper distributed nationally through his more than 7,000 dealerships. Prior to the outbreak of World War II, he was an isolationist, vehemently railing against America getting involved in any European war. He made it known his successor would be son Edsel, yet, to coin a phrase, never really gave his son “the keys to the car.” Despite Edsel finally being made the president of the company, Henry’s constant criticisms and rejection of ideas helped drive Edsel to an early grave (1943).

Examples of his father’s interference: Henry steadfastly believed all Americans really needed was his 1915 Model T, the most successful automobile in history. It was Edsel who finally persuaded his father to introduce the 1927 Model A. Then Edsel went to the mat, finally convincing his father the 1932 V-8 engine was the revolutionary auto power plant of the future. When Edsel wanted to offer multiple colors on auto exteriors like other companies, (GM vehicles came in all colors “except” black), Henry flatly rejected the idea declaring, “Buyers can have any color they want as long as it’s black!”

There was a mean, anti-union side to Henry. To stave off union organizers, Henry surrounded himself and his factories by a gang of thugs posing as “security.” The “bodyguards” were led by Harry Bennett, who gained tremendous influence over the old man, coming between father and son. Henry never realized the extent of Bennett’s power. In reality, he had control of the company by intimidating executives and workera, shutting Edsel out. Workers could be fired for talking to one another while on the line. For years, unionization was rejected by Henry until Edsel finally gave in to worker demands.

In 1943, Edsel died of stomach cancer, leaving the old man back in charge, but Bennett continued to control Ford. When the war started, the company was not meeting Washington’s demand for aircraft, tanks, various other vehicles, and armaments. Realizing the problem, the War Department took Lt. Henry Ford II, the grandson, out of the Navy and placed him in charge of the company. One of the first decisions the young executive, (who became known as “Hank the Deuce”) made was to fire Bennett and his gang of thugs. While Henry, his son, Edsel, and three grandsons, Henry II, Benson, and William, all made historic 20th century contributions that revolutionized the American auto industry, the sweeping accomplishments of Edsel have nearly been lost to history.

Like his father, Edsel also was an inventor and transportation visionary, but unlike Henry, he was mild-manner, gentle, and well-liked. During his company leadership, he introduced the Mercury and Lincoln automobiles along with countless innovations. The next time you hear that low rumble of a V-8 engine, think of Edsel and his 1932 revolutionary power plant. As for Henry, he was the first of our six great American builders to make his mark in the 20th century. Of the six, he was by far the best-known around the world. NEXT WEEK: Thomas Edison

Bawa and Pokot are best friends. They love to play together in their favorite mud hole, splashing around, tumbling, and piling on one another. They are healthy and thriving—but it's only thanks to friends like you. You see, Bawa and Pokot are orphaned elephants. They were separated from their families at a young age: Bawa fell in a well and had to be rescued, and Pokot's mother was killed by poachers.

Dagmar is pet of the week at your Rancho Coastal Humane Society. He’s a 1-1/2 year old, 38 pound, Australian Cattle Dog mix.

Dagmar is named after Dagmar County in Australia. In his kennel he barks at people passing by. Outside he’s ready for a walk and a snuggle. He was transferred from another shelter through FOCAS. The $145 adoption fee for Dagmar includes medical exam, vaccinations, neuter, and microchip.

There is always a cost

California adopted a state law called the California Values Act, SB54. It limits (not eliminates) working relationships between federal immigration agents and local law enforcement. It also designates schools and hospitals as safe spaces for our most vulnerable populations – kids and sick people. Last week, the Escondido City Council voted (4:1) to submit an amicus brief – basically a strongly worded letter – to support a lawsuit

by the federal government against the state of California.

The Council chambers filled with speakers to address the council’s technically meaningless gesture. The majority of Escondido residents spoke in favor of protecting undocumented immigrants. The most aggressive speakers were from communities outside Escondido, some from as far away as Arizona. It gave voice to hate and bigotry. A real example I received 4/5/18:

“You are an un-American liberal scumbag piece of shit You support illegals over Americans and You are a worthless libtard bitch If you don’t like this country pack your shit and go live with those m*****-f******s where they are”

There is always a cost to taxpayers when Mayor Abed chooses to go on a weeklong media junket ahead of his next election. That cost is often the lasting impact of negative headlines, wasted staff time and the continued empowerment of hateful speech.

Sally, a 10-year-old Domestic Short Hair mix, is a cheerful kitty looking for a loving home to call her own. She may be a senior cat, but she is young at heart! She is very friendly and loves attention from humans (even ones she has never met). She also likes to explore. Sally has some mild skin and dental issues but her fabulous personality more than makes up for it. Her adoption fee includes her spay, permanent microchip identification, current vaccinations, 30 days worry free insurance from Trupanion Insurance and a certificate for a free veterinary exam!

Releasing Children from Poverty

One of the great joys of life is being able to help someone in need. Especially a child in need. For three decades now my wife and I have written a small check each month to help a little boy or girl with clothing, education and medicine in a developing country. Right now we’re helping a young man named Esteban, from Honduras. We follow his progress by writing letters back and forth. We have hopes that Esteban will become a leader in his country one day. April 29 is Compassion Sunday throughout the U.S.

Lori and I chose Esteban because he was born on July 3, the same day as our son. Compassion has children development centers in almost every impoverished nation in the world. Through these centers they give personal attention and mentoring to each child, and help the rest of the family as well. We’ve cared for Esteban for almost eight years now, so he’ll soon graduate from the program. We’re toying with adopting our next child from Bolivia. It’s a safe country for Americans, and close enough that we could fly there for a visit with our child. I hope many readers of The Paper will consider joining us for Compassion Sunday and select a child to sponsor that morning. New Song’s service times are 9 and 11 a.m. at 3985 Mission Avenue in Oceanside. See you there!

New captain takes command of San Marcos Sheriff’s Station

Earlier this year, the city announced that Dave Brown will take over as captain of the San Marcos Sheriff’s Station. Captain Brown has been with the sheriff’s department for 28 years He began his career as an intern with the probation department in his senior year at San Diego State University.

Is it possible he'd be happy with just killing me? Does he definitely want to kill me, or would he be content just to wound me?

If I were to grab his knees and hold on, could my family get away while he was stabbing me? Should I call 9-1-1?

Why is this street so deserted?

We need to raise taxes, have paint & weed day.

Can we make this a happier, healthier street that would discourage such behavior. I need to debate this with some friends for a few days and try to come to a consensus. This is all so confusing!

Wife: You are not taking that to the Taxidermist! Making a snowman

It had been snowing all night. So the morning goes like this;

8:00 I made a snowman. 8:10 A feminist passed by and asked me why I didn’t make a snow woman. 8:15 So, I made a snow woman. 8:17 The nanny of the neighbors complained about the snow woman's voluptuous chest. 8:20 The gay couple living nearby grumbled that it could have been two snowmen instead. 8:25 The vegans at No. 12 complained about the carrot nose, as veggies are food and not to decorate snow figures with. 8:28 I am being called a racist because the snow couple is white. 8:31 The Muslim gent across the road wants the snow woman to wear a headscarf. 8:40 Someone calls the cops who show up to see what’s going on. 8:42 I am told that the broomstick of the snowman needs to be removed because it could be used as a deadly weapon. Things get worse after I mutter : "Yeah, if it's up your a**" 8:45 Local TV news crew shows up. I am asked if I know the difference between snowmen and snow-women? I reply, "Snowballs" and am called a sexist. 8:52 My phone is seized and thoroughly checked while I am being blindfolded and flown to the police station in a helicopter. 9:00 I'm on the news as a suspected terrorist bent on stirring up trouble during this difficult weather. 9:10 I am asked if I have any accomplices. 9:29 A little known jihadist group has claimed it was their plot. Moral: There is no moral to this story. It’s just the America we live in today!

Obituary

Harold J. (Chuck) Loewenberg 8/26/24 - 2/16/18

Getting an extra PC or two can avoid all these problems. Think about it. For between $150 and $250 you can buy a fully functional Windows 7 or 10 Notebook or desktop PC with all the bells and whistles. That’s about one fourth what you pay for a smart phone and I’ll bet you don’t share your phone. In addition, an extra PC or two doesn’t cost you a dime in monthly charges. When friends and relatives visit your home and ask to use your PC just hand them the “guest computer.” If your employees want to use a computer for personal business, set a couple up in the break room. Having a notebook PC in every room or setting one aside in the workplace is no longer an extravagance, it’s cheap and convenient.

So what are these wonderful, inexpensive PCs and where do you get them? They are not the new low cost PCs sold in retail stores. Those loss leader cheapies from Dell, HP and Lenovo are low quality garbage, available only with Windows 10. The best deals available today are the “corporate” refurbs. They are available in many

He served as a volunteer for St. Vincent de Paul Thrift Store, St. Dismas Guild, a prison ministry, and Interfaith Community Services, touching people of a variety of needs.
