During the closing days of the Second World War, the United States would soon experience a state of shock at discovering just how advanced the Third Reich’s German scientists were. Their achievements in warfare science was, literally, leaps and bounds ahead of us. As one source put it, “Hitler’s incredible capability to successfully launch V-2 missile attacks on British soil in the mid-1940s clearly reveals just how much more advanced they were than our Allies.” From the standards of that era, this is a most remarkable achievement in rocket science. German rocket science was so advanced that it would eventually prove to be the initial blueprints for both the Soviet Union and the United States in their race-to-space explorations. There would be a rush to capture German scientists.
There was only one problem. The U.S. President made it clear in his ruling: no one actively associated with the Nazi Regime will be allowed to enter the confines of the United States. It was a huge dilemma: if we honored the letter of the law, we would forfeit all the advancements of German science that our adversaries would, certainly, exploit to the fullest. If we circumvented the presidential ruling, we would be accountable for discrimination in applying justice to some but not to others. Our secret governments, viz., our CIA and domestic FBI, would certainly ‘do whatever is necessary for the greater good of the people’ which translates to “bleaching the records of these brilliant World War II scientists,” as is necessary so as to preserve our military competitiveness with Russia. It was deemed a necessary step. The V-2 missiles would eventually prove be the precursors to intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBM) of modern American and Russian armaments.
The sophistication of the German’s Third Reich V-2 rocket (Vergeltungswaffe-2) was almost science fiction brought to life. Just think, this revolutionary arsenal resulted in the world’s first ballistic missile attacks when they rained down on London, England, in September of 1944. And these “vengeance weapons” from the skies were almost immune to enemy fire. As one historian states, “It was virtually impossible to intercept. Upon launch, it rose six miles vertically, cutting off its own fuel according to the range desired.” Dr. Friedrich Kirchstein even developed the V-2 radio for motor cut-off. The deadly speed was 4,000 mph and range was an unbelievable 200 miles!
Dr. Wernher von Braun headed rocket science development that eventually terrorized London, and the entire country, killing over 2,700 civilians and injuring over 6,500. Von Braun would later testify to his American interrogators that his primary interest of rocketry was not to devastate but to develop man’s capability to travel into outer space. This caused Jewish comedian and satirist, Mort Sahl
The Paper - 760.747.7119
(born 1927-present) to attribute his celebrated remark to Wernher von Braun, “I aim for the stars, but sometimes hit London.” Mort Sahl’s political wit was so wellrespected that John F. Kennedy would eventually ask Sahl to write jokes for his campaign speeches.
Nevertheless, such astonishing achievement in rocket warfare was of primary interest to the allies. As the war was drawing to an end, the United States would commence a frenzied rush to gather as many German scientists as possible, under the code name “Operation Paperclip.” This meant ‘everybody for themselves,” as even Allied Forces raced to compete against each other in the mad rush to ‘grab what you can, as quickly as you can,’ in the form of World War II German rocket engineers and theoretical
Major-General Hugh Knerr, Deputy Commander of the U.S. Air Force in Europe, wrote of the urgency in trying to seize a scientific goldmine: “If we do not take the opportunity to seize the apparatus and the brains that developed it and put the combination back to work promptly, we will remain several years behind while we attempt to cover a field already exploited.” Giving credit where credit is due, Germany’s scientific community during the Second World War was vastly superior over their Allied counterparts – even if that credit is begrudgingly granted because of their work under Hitler’s regime. This rush to gather Third Reich scientists was tantamount to the frantic era of our early Gold Rush days, but vastly more important if we were to survive the Cold War
‘Operation Paperclip’ Continued on Page 2
What was discovered in schematic charts and diagrams was a science far beyond anything we, the Russians, or the British, were even close to imagining, let alone, in pursuit of. U.S. Air Force Deputy Commander, Major-General Hugh Knerr wrote a shocking truth in a handwritten report, “Occupation of German scientific and industrial establishments has revealed the fact that we have been alarmingly backward in many fields of research.”
Now that the war was at end, our cooperation abruptly ended with our Russian and British Allies. Especially in regards to the Russians. Our U.S. Operations’ mission was (unofficial), but clear: “To exploit German scientists for American

research and to deny these intellectual resources to the Soviet Union.”
Just how much more advanced were the Third Reich German scientists? Let us glimpse what our military experts expressed: “If these scientists were left alone without the intervention of war to interrupt their military work, the German war machine could have proven to be invincible. Then, the Thousand-Year-Reich may have had its best chance for world domination. Especially in light of the fact that German scientists were on the fast track for nuclear weaponry.” Historians and social scientists are fully aware that it is comforting to bathe in a bubble bath of self-denial, such as not believing that Germany was on the verge of developing the first atomic bomb. Disturbing as it may be, there is abundant evidence – long classified from the public – that seems to tell us otherwise. In repeated polls, Americans have developed a long and deep mistrust of U.S. Government honesty, especially in regards to such events as the Kennedy assassination, and the mysterious Roswell crash in New Mexico. In regards to the research on nuclear fission under Adolf Hitler, the United States has place a stringent 100year secrecy on files concerning the German’s race to produce the first atomic bomb. This data is sealed partly for military security reasons, and partly to comfort civilian populations. One unsealed Russian military intelligence report clearly reads (in translation): “The Germans are in the throes of making and testing a new secret weapon, which has a large destructive force.” The documents go on to say that, in retrospect, the German scientists were clearly in pursuit of nuclear tests, at the time, in Thuringia (reference here to the Jonas Valley in Thuringia,

eastern Germany). In addition to this, the release of newly-declassified Russian information confirms this, according to several sources, including England’s Daily Mail, outside of the United States. Such revelations come as a sudden jar to our collective sense of denial that such scenarios were the stuff of wild speculation, and nothing more. The secret goings-on at the Thuringia region was highly classified by the Germans. However, declassified American intelligence reports even show that America’s supreme commander in Europe at the time, Dwight D. Eisenhower, ordered reconnaissance flights over the valley of Thuringia, which were motivated by inconclusive intelligence of Nazi scientists conducting strange testings of “a large destructive bomb of unknown destructive force.” Reference here is clearly not to any conventional bomb, but a nuclear one!
Historian Matthia Uhl said, “The race to develop the Nazi A-bomb went into overdrive in the final year of the war.” The alleged atom bomb research programme was under the direction of Hans Kammler, an S.S. general, who was one of a very few who answered only to Adolf Hitler, directly. Kammler was put in charge of the race for nuclear fission. It is alarming to note that the region of Thuringia was not an isolated example of atomic research. Andrew Walker, of England’s BBC News, reported, “In May 1945, Stalin’s legions secured the atomic research labs at the prestigious Kaiser Wilhelm Institute in the suburbs of Berlin, giving the kernel of what would become the vast Soviet nuclear arsenal.”
Considering the German’s startling and unparalleled advancements in rocket technology, the idea of Germany pursuing nuclear fission, as historian Matthia Uhl points out, is something still largely

sealed under U.S. Government secret documents, safe from public awareness. The math here is almost too disturbing to do: atom bomb together with V-2 rockets to carry the atomic payload equals = world domination.
Without all the exaggerated hype, it is a well-established fact that the Germans discovered nuclear fission. In December of 1938, two German chemists reported they had detected the element Barium after bombarding uranium with neutrons. This effort was confirmed as being nuclear fission. In April 1939, the Reich Ministry of War was informed of the potential military application of nuclear energy. Whether they would have successfully proceeded to create the first atomic bomb is relegated to pure conjecture. But conjecture, from some war scholars, lean more toward ‘probability.’ Such concealment of information, even long after the Second World War (documents were sealed for 100 years) has led the Pew Research Center to find good reason for Americans to mistrust U.S. Government, “Only 19 percent of Americans trust the government ‘always or most of the time.’ Survey levels are among the lowest in surveys of the past 50 years.” Americans are smarter than government officials often give them credit for. What big government tells them is often revealed in public jokes: “Politicians and diapers have one thing in common – they both should be changed regularly, and for the same reason.”
Germany’s V-2 rockets became the first artificial objects to cross the boundary of space with the vertical launch of V177 on June 20, 1944 and would later lead America and the Soviet Union into interplanetary space. As science scholars relate, “The V-2 rocket also laid the founda-

tion for the Saturn V rocket used by the United States in the Apollo missions, which eventually put Neil Armstrong, the first man, on the moon.” Germany’s WWII scientist, Wernher von Braun, himself, headed our first man-on-the-moon project. World War II German scientists were gifted beyond the standards of their era. Such verbiage, however accurate, may seem awkward and uncomfortable regarding Deutsches Reich (the official name of Germany until 1945) and their world-domination plan.
In 2016, war historians still marvel at Hitler’s military machine which was still evolving before it was halted. Also, experts in today’s aviation assert that stealth technology, which is designed to avoid radar detection, was first conceived and developed under Hitler’s regime. Recently, the Horten Ho 229 has been called “Hitler’s Stealth Fighter,” even though there are those who critique this title.
Northrop-Grumman Corporation engineers visited the Smithsonian Museum facility in Silver Hill, Maryland in the early 1980s to study the Horten Ho 229 construction to assert its own answers. “The stealth capabilities may have been incidental,” was the conclusion, “and still in evolutionary stages, at best.” Nonetheless, the Third Reich’s Horton Ho 229 was the first flying wing to be powered by jet engines. “With its radar-absorbing carbon impregnated physical skin and swept-back single wing, the Horton Ho 229 was, arguably, the first stealth aircraft. It was also the first ‘flying wing’ to be powered by jet engines!” Under “Operation Paperclip,” the United

States came up with a royal flush in terms of its ‘military catch,’ which came about less by accident and more by design. Rocket scientist Wernher von Braun wanted to be captured by the Americans and, certainly, not by the invading Russian, which von Braun had referred to as “eastern hordes.” In the closing days of the war, von Braun and his engineering group were moved to Austria. On May 2, 1945, von Braun’s brother and fellow-rocket engineer, Magnus, rode a bicycle and approached a U.S. soldier from the U.S. 44th Infantry Division calling out in broken English, “My name is Magnus von Braun. My brother invented the V-2. We want to surrender.” In the mad rush to collect as many German scientists as possible at war’s end, Wernher von Braun was the ultimate prize. “Of the more than 1,600 Nazi scientists brought to the United States, Dr. Wernher von Braun was the ‘preeminent catch,’” this according to Eric Lichtblau, author of “The Nazis Next Door.” However, there would be a snafu. Under Operation Paperclip, which President Harry Truman authorized in August of 1945, Truman expressly ordered that anyone found “to have been a member of the Nazi party and more than a nominal participant in its activities, or an active supporter of Nazi militarism” would be deprived of coming to American shores. This presidential order put our CIA and FBI on the horns of a serious dilemma. Under this presidential directive all of the German scientists that we had seized would be persona non grata (persons not wanted) on American soil. Under this ruling, Wernher von Braun – the prize catch of World War II – would not be allowed into the United States. Braun had been a member of the Nazi party, held rank in the SS, and according to our own U.S. intelligence file, “Wernher von Braun was a security risk to the United States.” Likewise, von Braun’s brilliant associates would all have to be deported, if brought to America.
In a totalitarian society, Wernher von Braun was not above the law as a ‘war scientist.’ Braun stated that he was demanded to join the Nazi Party, which he did and was issued membership No. 5,738,692. Any refusal on von Braun’s

TERC Meeting is Monday, April 18 - Lt. Col. Rod Dyckman will be the guest speaker for The Escondido Republican Club’s (TERC’s) luncheon meeting on Monday, April 18th. Dyckman, who resides in Fallbrook, is a retired Air Force pilot with roughly 20,000 hours flying time. He was an instructor and evaluator in every Air Force airplane he flew. Most notably, Rod was assigned the 1st Strategic Reconnaissance Squadron, home of the SR-71 Blackbird and
part would have led to grim circumstances for him. Documented paper trail confirms Braun’s predicament. Then, in the spring of 1940, a certain SS-colonel (Mueller) paid von Braun an official visit informing the scientist that Reichsfuehrer SS Heinrich Himmler had urged von Braun to also join the SS. Such urging from the SS hierarchy was always understood as a cloaked demand rather than a request. Under such a behest, von Braun “joined the organization and was issued with membership No. 185,068.”
Despite these thorny entanglements, when push came to shove, justice was placed on the shelf and all these brilliant scientists were cleared to work for the United States. As stated in military reports, “All of these men were cleared to work for the U.S. Their alleged crimes covered up and their backgrounds bleached. Winning the Cold War is the first priority over upholding justice.” In the ensuing years, efforts were made to identify and deport them, however, both the CIA and FBI blocked the investigations.
Wernher von Braun would commence to mastermind the U.S. moon shots, eventually placing the first human beings on the lunar surface. Arthur Rudolph, would lead the U.S. team which built the Saturn V rocket. Kurt Debus would become a top U.S. rocket launch specialist. Hubertus Strughold would become known as “The Father of Space Medicine,” designing NASA’s on-board life-support systems. Nick Cook, Aerospace Consultant at Jane’s Defense Weekly, speculated that many ultra-secret advancements were made based on “Nazi technology, including anti-gravity devices.” Much of what constitutes today’s U.S. military comes from German World War II scientists. Cruise missiles are still based on the design of the German V-1 missiles. Northrop Aviation’s various stealth aircraft are, arguably, based on Germany’s 1944 Horten Ho 229. Even NASA’S X-43 hypersonic aircraft is based on German jet pioneering. Objectively, without the benefit of World War II German ingenuity, America would have sunk, dangerously, behind the advancements of its adversaries today to the extreme of being vulnerable to any nuclear firststrike possibility.

Republican Party County Chairman to Speak at Happy Hour Politics - On Wednesday, April 20th, join Happy Hour Politics (HHP) in welcoming Tony Krvaric, Chairman, Republican Party of San Diego County. His topic is “Local and National Political Update: Getting involved in Election 2016!” He will review the political landscape here in San Diego and across the
In defense of Dr. Wernher von Braun, much of what he did was by coercion and threat by the Third Reich regime. Being a member of the SS or Nazi party was more by conscription rather than volunteering. When asked if von Braun could have protested against the brutal treatment of the slave laborers, von Braun team member, Konrad Dannenberg, told The Huntsville Times newspaper in America, “If he had done it, in my opinion, he would have been shot on the spot.” In “Wernher von Braun: Crusader for Space,” it was clearly stated that von Braun was aware of conditions of slave laborers (concentration camp prisoners) who were forced to work on his V-2 rocket program. After visiting a plant in Mittelwerk a friend of von Braun quoted the scientist as saying, “It is hellish. My spontaneous reaction was to talk to one of the SS guards, only to be told with unmistakable harshness that I should mind my own business, or find myself in the same striped fatigues!” More slave workers died building the V2 rocket than were killed by it as a weapon of war. Under suspicion himself, von Braun commented, “I realized that any attempt of reasoning on humane grounds would be utterly futile.” Von Braun had been under surveillance since October 1943. An SS report recorded that Wernher von Braun and two colleagues, Walther Riedel and Helmut Grottrup, had expressed discontentment that they were not working on a spaceship, and also that the war was not going well. Such talk could easily have resulted in the death sentence for treason. Von Braun was arrested by the Gestapo and was detained on March 14, 1944 and taken to a Gestapo cell in Stettin (now Szezecin, Poland), where he was held for two weeks. Von Braun was begrudgingly released only so that he could continue his work on the V-2 program. Quoting from the “Fuhrerprotokoll” (the minutes of Hitler’s meetings) Adolf Hitler interceded on von Braun’s behalf for release (translated from the original German): “In the matter concerning Wernher von Braun, I will guarantee you that he will be exempt from persecution as long as he is indispensable.” (Von Braun was well-recognized as being indispensable for continued advancement-development of the V-2 missile.) Privately, Wernher von Braun’s thoughts were manifest when he wrote, “To us (the scientists), Hitler was still only a pompous fool

with a Charlie Chaplin moustache.” Such denunciations were followed with perceiving Hitler as, “another Napoleon that was wholly without scruples, a godless man who thought himself the only god.”
Years after the war, while relocated in America, von Braun commented on his role as a war scientist for Germany and expressed regret over the terror and death his V-2 rockets caused, but with a caveat: “I have very deep and sincere regret for the victims of the V-2 rockets, but there were victims on both sides. A war is a war, and when my country is at war, my duty is to help win that war.” While stationed in Huntsville, Alabama prior to NASA, von Braun and his German science research team tried valiantly to ‘blend in.’ At von Braun’s insistence, no member of his team was to speak German if there was so much as a single American within earshot. According to team member, Ernst Stuhlinger, even if only a janitor were close enough to hear them, German was verboten (forbidden). The new German residents were now settling down in a new culture. The Monte Sano mountains, near Huntsville, in northeast Alabama, reminded the new Teutonic residents of their homeland. However, the Alabama residents were wary of their new German neighbors as many of them knew about the Nazi Party and V2 rockets of World War II that rained death over London. Now in postwar America, rocketry vibrated Huntsville every time the powerful propulsion engines were tested by the German scientists, often rattling windows and cracking dishes around town. But, Wernher von Braun was a most charismatic individual who cut quite a wide swathe. He quickly became popular in accepting virtually every speaking invitation, winning over Rotarian club members and everyday town folk. Von Braun’s team members followed in his wake. One German scientist was offered a homemade pecan pie from 70year-old Loretta Spencer, the mayor of Huntsville. The moon was the limit, in a manner of speaking, for Wernher von Braun -- his popularity would soon see him making multiple nationwide television appearances with Walt Disney! America, as a nation, got their first glimpse of Dr. Wernher von Braun on

On Thursday, April 7 at 6:51pm the City of Carlsbad Police Department received a call to assist California State Parks Police on a traffic collision wherein the driver of the vehicle was still inside the vehicle and was being held at gunpoint by California State Parks Police Officers on Carlsbad Boulevard south of Avenida Encinas. Upon arrival Carlsbad Police Officers located a white Ford E350 van which had collided into a tree on the east curb line of south bound traffic on Carlsbad Boulevard south of Avenida Encinas. California State Parks Police Officers had the driver of the vehicle at gunpoint and were communicating with him from their police vehicle. The California State Parks Police Officers communicated to Carlsbad Police Officers that they heard the collision from their office and responded to provide assistance. When they contacted the driver of the vehicle he communicated incoherently with them and attempted to move his vehicle against their orders whereupon they retreated to their police vehicle for safety.
California State Parks Police Officers and Carlsbad Police Officers attempted for over three hours to convince the driver of the vehicle to voluntarily exit the vehicle however he refused. Carlsbad Police Officers ultimately forcibly removed the driver of the vehicle from the vehicle and took him into custody.

We revisited last week’s comments about the April Fool’s issue The Paper produced a number of years ago and came across some fascinating comments in our Letters to the Editor following that historic issue:

On Friday, April 8, at 4:36 pm, the City of Carlsbad Police Department received a report of a traffic collision involving multiple motor vehicles in the intersection of Cannon Road and El Camino Real. Officers responded to the scene and found that a 1999 Honda Civic driven by a 37-year-old female had collided with three other motor vehicles. City of Carlsbad Fire Department personnel responded and provided medical treatment to the injured parties. One of the drivers was transported via helicopter to Scripps La Jolla and one other was transported by ambulance to Palomar Hospital where they were treated for their injuries. One of the injuries is possibly life threatening.
A preliminary investigation has revealed that the Honda was driving westbound Cannon Road. Two other vehicles, a Dodge Ram and Chevrolet Corvette, were travelling northbound El Camino Real when the Honda entered the intersection and collided with the Dodge Ram and Chevrolet Corvette. The Honda and the Dodge Ram then travelled west where the Honda collided with a Chevrolet Silverado pickup that was stopped in the southbound El Camino Real turn lane waiting to turn eastbound onto Cannon Road.

Letters to the Editor Dear Sirs
In Volume 46 - No 13, the March 31, 2016 edition of The Paper there was a great story beginning on the first page about the Beatles in San Diego as well as Elvis Presley's efforts to persuade President Nixon to ban the Beatles(!).
However, in an otherwise factual article how could there be such a glaring error regarding the date of Elvis's death ? ! This famous artist's death is well known to just about everyone as Aug.16, 1977, not 1988 as the article stated. You describe the author (Frederick Gomez) as "a writer's writer." Hardly, given such a huge mistake. /s/Andy Meadows San Diego County, CA.

Patrons could sip their wine, eat their pate, and holler Parisian-style curses at the umps.” From Don Stuhldreier, from somewhere in Maine where he and his house are hidden under snow drifts: “Just my opinion, but I think more people could be seated if the Grand Canyon were to be moved to Escondido. An additional advantage would be that, since it's a lot closer than the Eiffel Tower, shipping cost would be much lower.” Another from Mayor Sam: “Lyle, thanks a lot.

Operation Paperclip Cont. from Page 3 March 9, 1955 when he appeared on the first episode of Walt Disney’s “Tomorrowland” television series. Von Braun would stay on to serve as Walt’s technical advisor on three space-related television films. Early on, when Disneyland in Anaheim was having technical difficulties in the creation of the park’s Tomorrowland, they asked for Wernher von Braun’s guidance and expertise. According to David R. Smith, Director of Archives at Walt Disney Productions, von Braun “pounced on the opportunity.” As a result, von Braun provided behind-the-scenes expertise in Disneyland’s creation of Tomorrowland at the famed Anaheim park in California. By the mid-1960s, Wernher von Braun was persuading legendary University of Alabama football coach, Bear Bryant and rival Auburn coach, Shug Jordan, to make television appearances with him to ask local voters to approve a bond to create a Space and Rocket Center. It was a short jump through time and space which eventually found Wernher von Braun leading our first moon shots for NASA, finally putting Neil Armstrong on the moon, the first human being to lay footprints on the lunar surface.
The complex and turbulent and, certainly, controversial journey that the German scientists paved to America will forever be associated with Adolf Hitler’s Third Reich. It is an inextricable past that, stubbornly, holds on. It will forever be difficult and hyper-sensitive ground for historians to navigate over. A journey full of volatile and combustible opinions, pro and con, over this and that issue. Nothing will completely be resolved to everyone’s satisfaction. War is never a neat and tidy business. Rather, it is an emotional and physical complexity of events that form a minefield of explosive opinions, all varied, and without symmetry. There was fallout, domestically, when 10,000 GermanAmericans were interned as enemy aliens during the Second World War.
To this day, there remain some who say von Braun and his associates should have been deported. Then there are others who say America did what was necessary to remain competitive with its adversaries. Today, the face of America has changed in multiple ways. Over 50 million Americans claim German ancestry, which makes them the largest single ethnic group in the United States (if you divide Hispanics into MexicanAmericans, Cuban-Americans, etc.). In a 2013 U.S. census, of the approximate 50 million German-Americans, only a paltry 1.38 million speak the German language. I for one, speak fluent German and I am most proud of that fact. My closest friends are German and I revel in that fact, also. Objectively, NASA called Wernher von Braun, “Without doubt, the greatest rocket scientist in history.” However one views him through prismatic lighting, Wernher von Braun was certainly that.
Dr. Wernher von Braun died of pancreatic cancer on June 16, 1977 and is buried at Alexandria, Virgina. On his gravestone is a quote from Psalms 19:1: “The Heavens declare the glory of God, and the firmament (vault or dome) showeth his handywork.”

Frederick Gomez responds: Yep, I did make a boo-boo, Lyle, regarding the date Elvis died. But, I feel rather good about it -- it puts me in rather excellent company, such as with Faulkner, Hemingway, Fitzgerald, and just about all the other giants of literature, here and abroad. I'm particularly amused with Hemingway because he had to rely on book and magazine editors to catch his mistakes (a job editors often complained about Hemingway because his errors were so profuse). I'm going to have to make some more mistakes, but on purpose, just to remind people that I have feet of clay just as the other literary notables. I want to stay in their luminous company. Some never forgave Hemingway, or Faulkner, or others for making those mistakes. It's amusing that making mistakes was easy for those authors -- it was the 'forgiving' part that was the most difficult. Best wishes, as always, Friedrich.
Editor’s Note: Notwithstanding Fredrich’s ‘mea culpa,’ we have ordered a firing squad to proceed to his home forthwith. Without blindfold. That’ll teach him.
More on Fredrich Gomez:
Am assuming Lyle is reading or will be reading this comment sent as this email. It is always interesting to read Mr. Gomez' articles. He does some good research. Sound like a good friend of yours as well.
Wanted to comment about his comments in "The Beatles, Elvis and San Diego regarding the death of John Lennon as being 'brutally murdered by M.D.C. on Dec. 8, 1980." It reminded me of an article I read a while back by a person named Miles W. Mathis. He has written some very interesting articles about all kinds of historical "facts" we are familiar with through the press. While it is possible that Lennon was killed back then Mr. Gomez might find it of interest to read his article under the search engine using miles w mathis john lennon. It is 50 pages long so be prepared to spend a little time in reading it if interested. He is quite a good facial recognition pro. The background info he alludes to is quite extensive and compelling in coming to his statement that John Lennon never died. Mr. Mathis says he never bothers the person he looks into but finds all his facts on the Internet but only puts them together, which most people do not have the time or inclination to do themselves. Article is interesting whatever conclusion one may come to about it. /s/Robert Jelinek, San Marcos
Still More on Mr. Gomez:
I assume that it was a typo, and not an error in Fredrick Gomez's article that mentioned "Billy Gasper" instead of "Billy Casper" on the front page, first column. Just thought I'd bring it to your attention, probably not the first or last to do so.
Great article, as always, from Mr. Gomez. Big fan, and weekly The Paper reader, /s/Steve Beulke

Freedom’s Cost is High
Freedom is not free. In fact, the price is incalculable. Our liberties are purchased with the most precious currency imaginable, the lives of young men and women who voluntarily place themselves in jeopardy so that the rest of us can live out our lives in freedom and security.
The cost of freedom was brought home when Staff Sergeant. Louis F. Cardin returned to Riverside County. He was received by throngs of citizens lining streets and bridges holding American and Marine flags and who later stood in line to pay their respects at a closed casket ceremony on the steps of Temecula City Hall. Staff Sgt. Cardin, one of almost 4,000 members of the United States military who have returned to Iraq since the rise of ISIS after the end of the Iraq War, was only 27. He was killed

They were wondering if Tony had acquired a new wife.
I had mis-heard a reference to the owner’s wife and thought her name was Sheila . . . and referred to her by that name . . . several times. in fact, it is Jila - (which, of course, sounds very similar to Sheilah. Well, maybe not.) Her husband, whom we all call Tony has a real name of Bijan . . . but Tony is easier for Americans to remember. (They are a delightful Persian couple who own and operate a superb Italian restaurant. No better salads in town and the daily specials are a steal.) Casa Angelo, 823 W. San Marcos Blvd., San Marcos. Just ask for Sheilah . . er, Jila, or Tony. ••••• About 25 years ago I did one of the smartest things I ever did in my life. I quit smoking. And I had hypnosis to thank for it. You see, I had very little will power . . . but hypnosis helped me get rid of a nasty, ugly, life-threatening habit. But the hypnotist who helped me quit was not as cute as Dr. Ginger Marable, Clinical Hypnotist. (You can read all about her on her website: absolutelysmokefree.com She claims a better than 95% success rate and her service is with a lifetime guarantee.
She has saved hundreds of lives with her system. And it only takes one session of about two hours! She individualizes her treatment for each client - learns what ‘triggers’ your impulse to smoke; deals with it, comes up with a plan that is yours forever . . . but that will help you quit after just one session. And, she points out, the session is fully tax deductible! You can give Dr. Marable ad call at 760.420.2279. (Or see her ad on page 13). ••••• I pass along this story as a memory of the not-too-distant past: Twice, we had television studios come to our location at Lyle's at Dixon Lake.
For 27 years I owned the concession there. Beautiful place. Quiet, great outdoor scenery, nice, clean, well manicured grounds, neat, clean picnic shelters . . . gorgeous lake as the backdrop.
The show was Renegade and starred Lorenzo Lamas, son of the famed Argentinian actor, Fernarndo Lamas. The younger Lams lived in Poway at the time; perhaps he still does.
He was a handsome guy, much like his dad. (Well, he was no lyle
davis, but still ...)
I think they paid us $500 each time as a location fee.
Historically Speaking by Tom Morrow
As a bonus we got to watch them dress the set . . . converted a picnic shelter to a stable, with special techniques to make the building look 'old-West' - a certain patina to the saddles and other accessories that "aged" them . . . these guys know their stuff.
We got to watch the filming of the actors . . . and even though they had a mobile canteen that supplied upscale food . . . they'd stop by our concession stand and buy some food and drink. So I and my staff (mostly my staff) got to hobnob with the stars. ••••• I hate to show my age but my 60th high school reunion is coming up in August. Not yet certain whether I can make it or not. We have a family member who has health issues and I may have to stay home to help address those issues. Family, of course, comes first. Still, it will likely be the last time I’d be able to say ‘goodbye’ to my fellow alumni from ‘dear old Benson High School’ in Omaha, Nebraska.
Lots of wonderful memories from those years.
I didn’t date much in high school; at least not at my high school. I went with a young lady from across town (North High School) for most of my high school years. She has since passed on to the Great Perhaps . . . so I doubt I’ll see many ‘old girl friends’ from way back when. (Last time I went to a reunion I was amazed at how much my alums had aged. I, of course, had not aged a bit.)
I’m not fond of Omaha’s hot, humid, summers ... but I reckon most of the time we’d be inside, in air conditioned comfort. So many of my family and friends from that era and area have moved on . . . or passed on . . . still, I’d like to go. We shall see. Will keep you posted. “Give a cheer for Benson High . . dear old Benson High School ... Cheer her till her rafters ring . . .” (And I forget the rest. It’s been a few years, y’know).

While in Tokyo, Berg dressed in a kimono and took flowers to the daughter of an American diplomat, who was in the hospital --the tallest building in the Japanese capital, but he never delivered the flowers.
Berg climbed to the hospital’s roof and with his movie camera filmed Tokyo Bay’s, several military installations, factories, and rail yards. Eight years later, Lt. Col. Jimmy Doolittle used Berg’s movies in planning the Tokyo raid. The Spy Who Played Pro Baseball
There once was a most talented man, who was a Major League Baseball player, but his primary job was being a spy for the U.S. Government. Catcher Moe Berg. In 1934, Berg was on the roster along with baseball legends Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig when they went on a tour of Japan. Why would a benchwarming catcher be included among a team of all-stars?
He had two loves: baseball and spying. Because of this, Berg had been enlisted by the government because he spoke 15 different languages, including Japanese. The War Department (now known as the Department of Defense), was aware the Japanese were building a powerful Navy and information was needed.

While in high school Berg learned Latin, Greek and French. He graduated magna cum laude from Princeton where he learned Spanish, Italian, German and Sanskrit. He did further studies at Paris’ Sorbonne and Columbia Law School picking up Japanese, Chinese, Korean, Indian, Arabic, Portuguese and Hungarian. When the War Department found out about the amazing linguist, he quickly was recruited as a spy.
During World War II, Berg was in the OSS (Office of Strategic Services, a forerunner of the CIA). He parachuted into Yugoslavia to assess the value of the two partisan groups. He reported back that Marshall Tito’s forces were widely supported by the people.
The question of the Nazis’ progress building an Atomic bomb was Berg’s next assignment. Under the code name “Remus,” Berg was sent to Switzerland for a lecture by noted German physicist Werner Heisenberg. Berg managed to slip past SS guards at the auditorium posing as a Swiss graduate student. Berg carried a pistol and a cyanide pill. If the scientist was to indicate the Nazis were close to building an atomic weapon, Berg was ordered to shoot him and then swallow the cyanide pill. Sitting in the front row, Berg determined the Germans were nowhere near their goal, so he complimented Heisenberg on his speech and walked with the scientist back to his hotel.

In spite of being 41, Berg was to make more parachute jumps. He landed in German-held Norway where he met with underground fighters and located a secret heavy water plant—part of the Nazis’ effort to build an atomic weapon. His intel guided the Royal Air Force in a bombing raid to destroy the plant. Berg’s report from Norway had been distributed to Britain’s Prime Minister, Winston Churchill, President Franklin D. Roosevelt and key figures in the team in Las Alamos, who was developing the atomic bomb. President Roosevelt remarked: “Give my regards to the catcher.” After the war, Berg was awarded the Medal of Merit by President Harry Truman. The honor was America’s highest civilian war time recognition. Berg declined the honor because he couldn’t reveal his spying activities. Berg played for six ML teams, the last being the Boston Red Sox (1935-39) After his death in 1972, Berg’s sister accepted his Medal of Merit and today it’s displayed in the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, NY.

Much of the help available to Veteran’s in North County comes from non-profit agencies who offer programs and services to supplement federal government benefits. There are many gaps in service and the City of Escondido has found a few small ways to help. We are addressing three specific areas – hiring veterans, supporting disabled veteran owned businesses and reducing building permit fees for
Any veteran who applies for employment with the City of Escondido will need to be qualified for the position but in an equally qualified applicant pool, a Veteran will get preference. Many cities have a similar practice.
As of April 6th, the City Council adopted a Disabled Veterans Business Enterprise ordinance to give a 2% bidding advantage on city purchase orders. This means
supplies and equipment purchased by the city through a bidding process will allow for a 2% advantage for bids submitted by a disabled veteran owned business. An additional 1% for locally owned business bidding also applies. The final step will be to reduce or eliminate building permit fees for disabled veterans remodeling or building a home in Escondido. We expect to consider this issue in the near future. Together, these three offerings from the City of Escondido are a substantive way to help our veteran residents.

Lulu is pet of the week at your Rancho Coastal Humane Society. She’s a 10 year old, 34 pound, Pug / Beagle mix. She’s a Puggle.
Lulu gets along great with other dogs. She loves long walks, runs, and hikes. Her family gave her up when they moved and couldn’t take her along.
The $145 adoption fee for Lulu includes medical exam, vaccinations, spay, and 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. Kennels and Cattery open 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. every day but Tuesday.
Judy, a 6-year-old Mastiff/Labrador mix, has captured the hearts of staff and volunteers and is hoping to find a special family to love her too! Judy, affectionately nicknamed “Judy Bug,” is a big girl but walks ever so nicely next to you while on leash. She loves to run and play outside, but is also just as happy laying down next to her humans for a nap. Judy is always delighted to see people and show them all the love she has to give. Judy is available for adoption at the San Diego Humane Society’s Escondido Campus located at 3450 East Valley Parkway. To learn more about making her part of your family, please call (760) 888-2275.

Amazing Things that Happen Every Time You Go to Church
Attend just about any church next Sunday and you’ll see the usual obvious things taking place: people greeted, songs sung, Scripture read, a sermon preached. All good stuff.
But far more impressive things are happening on Sundays – and you may never see it.
1. Insights are gained. Insight is more valuable than silver (Proverbs 16:16). During next Sunday’s sermon, some powerful and profitable insights will be shared. 2. Hope is created. As Scripture is taught, somewhere in the church, someone is finding hope. Don’t blink or
3. God smiles. God doesn’t speak audibly very often, but one time he did. During Jesus’ baptism he was so moved with joy that he articulated out loud, “I am well pleased.” Imagine how you would feel if your children came together one morning to sing songs to you about how wonderful you are. I bet you’d have a big smile on your face. I believe this happens with God every Sunday. 4. Treasure is stored. At some point in every service, an offering is taken. According to Matthew 6:20, while that’s happening, givers are having treasure deposited in heavenly accounts with their names on them. Very cool! 5. Intentions develop. As God speaks in worship services, people are moved to live differently. Sometimes this happens during a song. Often it happens during a sermon. You can’t see it as you look around the room, but it’s an unseen reality: people change their intentions when they encounter the truth of God. I hope you’ll be in church next Sunday!

You really didn't believe that I know anything about penguins, did you? It's so easy to fool OLD people.
SEENAGER I am a Seenager. (Senior teenager)
I have everything that I wanted as a teenager, only 60 years later.
I don't have to go to school or work. I get an allowance every month. I have my own pad.
I don't have a curfew.
I have a driver's license and my own car. If you are a Seenager, you will feel much more intelligent after reading this.
Life is good! I have an ID that gets me into bars and the wine store. I like the wine store best. The people I hang around with are not scared of getting pregnant. They aren’t scared of anything. They have been blessed to live this long, so why be scared? I also don't have acne.
Older people just seem slower because they know so much. People
don't decline mentally with age and the human brain doesn’t weaken with age. On the contrary, as people get older they simply know more. It just takes longer to retrieve their 100K terabytes of information as compared to the 500 gigabytes they had as a teenager. Just as a computer struggles when the hard drive gets full, it takes longer to recall the huge amount of data they have in their brains. Researchers say this slowing down process is not the same as cognitive decline. Dr. Michael Ramscar said: "The human brain works slower as it ages only because it has stored more information over time.”
Older people often go to another room to get something and when they get there, they stand there wondering what they came for. It is NOT a memory problem. It is nature's way of making older people do more exercise. I have more friends I should send this to, but right now I can't remember their names. So, please forward this to your friends. They may be my friends, too. THE YEAR IS 1915

Congratulations to Leadership Class
Participants from the Spring Vista Leadership Academy were recognized this past Tuesday at the Vista City Council. The City of Vista is proud of its 14th Leadership Academy’s graduating class. The Academy provides participating residents and Vista business owners insight on how their local government works and the responsibilities and operations of each department. Our City’s first academy was conducted in 2007 and that
session was an overwhelming success - and every subsequent academy has been even better! The Leadership Class spent seven weeks (once a week session) becoming better informed about the City's many responsibilities and functions. They learned how departments operated and toured city facilities and development projects, discussed important issues facing the city, such as planning, traffic, growth, and city finances and made lasting friendships with their peers. Congratulations to the spring 2016 participants!

age is over five years. The fact that PCs remain technologically competent for many years has caused the industry to create artificial “obsolescence.” by other means. Hyping new technologies, creating new OS (operating systems) and dropping support for older software are some ways the PC industry creates demand for new PCs. Paul & Nome Van Middlesworth, The Computer Factory
Folks who make their living using computers (graphics artists, design engineers, video and sound transcribers and of course high end “gamers”) follow computer technology very closely and understand how changing technology affects their needs. Most users have neither the time, interest or need to stay up with ever evolving PC technology. That makes them potential victims for the computer industry’s misleading marketing strategies. In order to get the best “bang for your buck” these days, you need to understand how retail sales works and why you want to take with “a grain of salt” media advertising or any information from PC sales folks. Computer industry profits come from the sale of computers. Ten years ago the average lifespan of a PC was a bit more than two years. Today the average
Computer giants like Intel, Microsoft, Dell, HP and the “big box” retailers conspire to create demand for new products by exaggerating the benefits of their most recent products. It is in their best interest to convince users that they not only need a new PC, but one with the “latest and greatest” technology. Often their “latest and greatest” are little more than name and model number changes.
Cheap “loss leader” retail PCs are advertised to generate foot traffic. No one but the Asian manufacturer actually makes money on the sale of these PCs. Major PC brands who no longer design, build or service PCs (like Dell and HP) don’t even plan to make a profit from the sale of these PCs. They have already pocketed their share of the revenue by stuffing them with the paid advertisements known as “bloatware.” These ads, pop-ups, links, banners and trial programs are preinstalled by Asian PC makers and drop shipped to retail distributors. Since Dell and HP subcontract the warranty, repair and tech services to third parties, they’re not really computer companies any more, they’re advertising agencies.
FUNDRAISER FOR THE Woman’s Club of Escondido LARGE ORGANIZATION
Saturday, April 23rd • 8am-2pm All kinds of items; jewelry, clothes, shoes, books, kitchen stuff, glassware, etc. Non-profit community-minded organization; the oldest organized club in Escondido – 104 years old.
All proceeds go to support local community programs/projects that the Club supports each year. If you have items you would like to donate and can bring them in on Friday, April 22nd.
Please call 760.746.1649 to let us know.
Retail store sales personnel are trained to “up sell” customers to more profitable models. Failing that they have a few more tricks. Service contracts and extended warranties boost store profits and sales commissions. The will even offer to remove the factory installed “bloatware” for a price.
Most extended warranties are a joke. Typically neither the retailer nor the manufacturer actually ‘fix” broken products. New PC warranties are awarded to the “low bidder” and the “extended warranties” sold by retailers are simply third party warranty programs that the retailer sells for a commission, You can buy one yourself on the Internet for any product.
As a rule “big box” retail sales personnel know little about matching user needs and PC technology. It isn’t that they are bad people; it’s simply that they are trained to sell what’s in stock and, not what users needs. They are trained to hype technology using buzzwords that have no meaningful frame of reference, Some Intel i3s are faster than some i7s. 2nd Generation CPUs can be more capable than 6th generation CPUs. Nobody will tell you those things. Next week we will create some specifications to match usage patterns as a guideline to getting you the best bang for your buck on your next PC.

The Doctor is In!
Cosmetic - Ceramic (NonMetallic) Crowns - Smile Enhancements
Ceramic, Non-Metallic Crowns are the current rave for Cosmetic Smile Enhancements. Everyone wants teeth that, once restored, “Brightens Your Smile” and gives you that overall “Glow” your face has begun to miss as we age and begin to wrinkle and tarnish a bit. Some of the old metal crowns caused allergic reactions and current research indicates they may be contributing to cancer formation. Metal crowns had been replaced in the mid-1960’s by porcelain jacket crowns. But by the mid-1980’s these crowns showed a 25% chance of failing after 11 years, with failure rates on posterior
teeth going much higher! Fortunately, in 1983 Horn, Simonsen and others introduced the first bonded porcelain crowns. Although these crowns didn’t fracture as often, they frequently came loose from their underlying teeth because their dental cements didn’t adhere well to dentin. Today, along with the development of newer cements, the modern day all-ceramic crowns have arrived. These new systems not only stay bonded to teeth well, they can also be categorized into two groups: those that are translucent and very natural in appearance and those that are more opaque having a higher-strength core that resist extreme chewing forces. Both are fabricated without a metal backing and therefore do not show their metal (called “shine through”) up by the gum line as their owner’s gums recede with age. There are several companies producing various formulations of these ceramics and
supplying them to the dental labs for crowns and bridges. Just to keep it simple, the opaque, stronger crowns are made from a Zirconia core and used in posterior teeth because they can withstand the stronger forces exerted in that region. The translucent, more color adjustable crowns are made from a pressured ceramic and are thus mostly used for anterior teeth. For those who have very strong bites and/or grind at night we now have a third option which allows us to “layer” porcelain onto the Zirconia based crowns resulting in stronger anterior teeth that won’t chip with their night-
In general the dentist will pick the appropriate cosmetic crown for you based on several factors including how much support is needed, whether the teeth are discolored, how much of the tooth is remaining, whether it will show when you’re speaking, eating, smiling, etc., as well as how much clearance you have with the opposing teeth, where your gum line is located, and finally, the color of your teeth. If you have an “unusual” color disposition, then the translucent crown may be the best choice!
