Some of us were not even around in the 1950s. Not even born during the 1960s, either. And yet, countless Americans in their teens and 20s today know much about the ‘50s and ‘60s era through cult films, such as “American Graffiti,” and “Fast Times At Ridgemont High.”
At this year’s summer-long 2018 Annual “Cruisin’ Grand” event here in downtown Escondido, take a gander around you and you’ll often see teenaged girls in poodle dresses and pony tails, and teen-boys emulating the clothing and hairstyle of yesterThe The Paper Paper -- 760.747.7119 760.747.7119

Today, teenagers in Japan, England, Germany, South America and other foreign countries have created clubs which copy the American-style clothing of the ‘50s and ‘60s era. For example, Elvis Presley impersonatorcontests are an annual occurrence overseas, as are Marilyn Monroe look-a-like events and fan clubs. From our iconic comic books, movies, hot rods and muscle cars against the backdrop of America’s own music invention -- rock ‘n’ roll - our 1950s and 1960s culture has proven irresistible nostalgia and lives on, even beyond our own American
Much of what occurred in 1950s and 1960s America is not lost on the socalled ‘Old Timers’ – much of that culture is recalled and re-lived in our history classes. Close your eyes and journey back in time onboard our imaginary time machine and see what was reshaping America, and the world at large, during the 50s and 60s.
Hurry -- before we depart! Quickly! Climb onboard our time machine and put on your safety belts. Here is our fun multiple-choice quiz just for you
and, in the process of having fun, we’ll learn much about our spinning Blue Marble back then.
Whoa! Our first stop . . . is the year 1957. IN 1957 THE RUSSIANS LAUNCHED THE FIRST SATELLITE TO ORBIT OUR PLANET EARTH. WHAT WAS THE SATELLITE’S NAME? A. Cosmonaut 1 B. Pravda 1 C. Sputnik 1 D. Bolshevik 1 If you selected “C” Sputnik 1, well, you didn’t miss any of your history

classes in school. On October 4, 1957 world history was made when the Soviet Union launched the world’s first man-made satellite to orbit our planet Earth. It was called “Sputnik 1” (“sputnik” is Russian for “satellite”). This scientific and technological achievement shocked the world with Sputnik 1 orbiting our planet at a dizzying 18,000 mph, completing one orbit around our Earth every 96.2 minutes! Sputnik 1 was a surprise event which created the “Sputnik Crisis” here in 1950s America and triggered the “Space Race,” which became a part of the Cold War era between the two nations, the Soviet Union and the United States.
WHO WAS THE U. S. PRESIDENT IN 1957 WHEN THE RUSSIANS FIRST LAUNCHED SPUTNIK 1? A. Franklin D. Roosevelt B. Harry S. Truman C. Dwight D. Eisenhower D. Richard M. Nixon If you selected “C” Dwight D. Eisenhower, I can tell you did not ditch any of your history classes! Congratulations! You are correct! Dwight D. Eisenhower was an American Army general who served as the 34th President of the United States through most of the 1950s decade, serving as Commander-InChief of our country from 1953 to 1961. Eisenhower was U. S. President when the Soviet Union launched history’s very first manmade satellite.

Three Contractors Bid On Repair To The White House Fence
One is from Chicago, another is from Kentucky, and the third is from New Orleans. All three go with a White House official to examine the fence.
The New Orleans contractor takes out a tape measure and does some measuring, then works some figures with a pencil.
Well," he says, "I figure the job will run about $9,000. That's $4,000 for materials, $4,000 for my crew and $1,000 profit for me.
The Kentucky contractor also does some measuring and figuring, then says, "I can do this job for $7,000. That's $3,000 for materials, $3,000 for my crew and $1,000 profit for me."
WHAT WAS THE AVERAGE ANNUAL U.S. INCOME IN 1957? A. $2,992 per year B. $3,400 per year C. $3,914 per year D. $4,713 per year
I know that all the annual income figures above are truly shocking to your nervous system (and bank book) right now, but if you selected “D” you’re right on the money! According to the U. S. Bureau of Labor Statistics’ “Occupational Wage Survey,” the average annual earnings for a full-time male worker in 1957 was $4,713. This would be about $41,761.37 today. The average annual earnings for women in 1957 was $3,008, or about $26,653.56 in today’s dollars. Today’s average annual income in America hovers around $44,148 per year (according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics for 2016). By the way, in 1957 the average cost of a new house was $12,220, monthly rent was $90 and the average cost of a new car sold for $2,749. Gas for your car was 24-cents per gallon, average cost of children’s shoes was $5.95 and a first-class postage stamp to mail your letter was 3-cents. IN 1951 WHAT FAMOUS HAMBURGER CHAIN STARTED RIGHT HERE IN SAN DIEGO? A. McDonald’s B. In-N-Out Burger C. Carl’s Jr. D. Jack in the Box
Hmm, this is making me hungry. If you picked “D” Jack in the Box, you The Chicago contractor doesn't measure or figure, but leans over to the White House official and whispers, "$27,000."
The official, incredulous, says, "You didn't even measure like the other guys. How did you come up with such a high figure? The Chicago contractor whispers back, "$10,000 for me, $10,000 for you, and we hire the guy from Kentucky to fix the fence.??? "Done!" replies the government official.

are spot-on. The world’s first Jack in the Box was founded in San Diego on February 21, 1951, by businessman, Robert O. Peterson, and was located on the main east-west thoroughfare leading into the city. That was 67 years ago and if you quickly step outside our time machine, you can grab a Jack in the Box hamburger for 18cents before we continue our timemachine journey. To this day, Jack in the Box headquarters remain stationed in San Diego.
For the record, McDonald’s was founded in San Bernardino in 1940 when the McDonald family moved their hamburger stand from Monrovia, California, and changed its name from “The Airdrome” to “McDonald’s Bar-B-Que.” Most of the 25 items on the menu were barbeque. Interestingly, McDonald’s corporate headquarters are no longer in America but currently based in the U.K. (United Kingdom). In-N-Out Burger started in Baldwin Park, California in 1940. Carl’s Jr. first appeared in 1941 Los Angeles as a hot dog cart, believe it or not. WHAT YEAR DID DISNEYLAND FIRST OPEN TO THE WORLD? A. 1952 B. 1955 C. 1957 D. 1959
You could first experience the magic and enchantments of Disneyland when it first opened back in July of 1955, so if you selected “B” you are on a roll! By the way, if you want to know all about the secrets that are still hidden, today, within Disneyland park at Anaheim, California, you can

It was a liquor store. ••••• Years ago, a young Navy Pilot was injured while ejecting from his A-4 Skyhawk due to engine failure during a catapult shot from the carrier. Due to the heroics of rescue helicopter crew and the ship's hospital staff, the only permanent injury was the loss of one ear. Since he wasn't physically impaired, he remained on flight status and eventually became an Admiral. However, during his career he was always sensitive about his appearance.
One day the Admiral was interviewing two Navy Master Chiefs and a Marine Sergeant Major for his personal staff. The first Master Chief was a Surface Navy type and it was a great interview. At the end of the interview the Admiral asked him, "Do you notice anything different about me?"
The Master Chief answered, "Why, yes, Admiral. I couldn't help but notice that you are missing your starboard ear, so I don't know whether this impacts your hearing on that side."
The Admiral got very angry at this lack of tact and threw him out of his office. The next candidate, an Aviation Master Chief, when asked this same question, answered, "Well yes, Sir, you seem to be short one ear." The Admiral threw him out as well.
The third interview was with the

WHAT WORLD LEADER CREATED A SCANDAL BECAUSE HE COULDN’T VISIT DISNEYLAND? A. Winston Churchill (UK) B. David Ben-Gurion (Israel) C. Mao Tse-tung (Republic of China) D. Nikita Khrushchev (Soviet Union)
If you chose “D” Nikita Khrushchev, you are absolutely correct! The First Secretary of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union, Nikita Khrushchev, created an international incident when he was not allowed to visit Disneyland at Anaheim, California. Here’s the juicy details.
In 1959, Soviet leader, Nikita Khrushchev, visited the United States for an extended visit and a summit meeting with President Dwight D.

Marine Sergeant Major. He was articulate, extremely sharp, and seemed to know more than the two Navy Master Chiefs put together. The Admiral wanted this guy but went ahead with the same question. "Do you notice anything different about me?"
To his surprise, the Sergeant Major said, "Yes Sir. You wear contact lenses."
The Admiral was impressed and thought to himself, what an incredibly tactful Marine. "And how would you know that?" the Admiral asked. The Sergeant Major replied: "Well, sir, it's pretty hard to wear glasses with only one ear”. ••••• Just a guess, but Will Rogers never met you did he? ••••• French nymphomaniac: Goes oui oui oui all the way home. ••••• At one time I was dating two women, Kate and Edith.

Eisenhower. After visiting various California tourist sites, such as Hollywood, the Soviet leader made it abundantly clear that he wanted to visit Disneyland in Anaheim. When his request was denied on the grounds of security precautions not being adequate to protect him, Khrushchev threw a tantrum that reverberated around the world! Khrushchev shouted: “But just now I was told that I could not go to Disneyland! I asked, ‘Why not?!’ What is it, do you have rocketlaunching pads there?! I do not know!”
Khrushchev’s rant was printed in newspapers around the world and was reported on television news. The Soviet leader’s words grew more intense, almost reaching a level of hysteria when he shouted: “What is it?! Is there an epidemic of cholera there or something?! Or have gangsters taken over the place (Disneyland) that can destroy me?! Then what must I do?! Commit suicide?! This is the situation: I am your guest!! For me, the situation is inconceivable! I cannot find words to explain this to my people!!”
This international incident caused great tension and embarrassment for both the Soviet Union and the United States, all amplified during the Cold War tension at the time.
A frustrated and red-faced Khrushchev, angrily departed Los Angeles the next morning. But the surreal incident only helped popular-

Nikita Khrushchev would embarrass the Soviet Union again in New York in 1960 when, in a fit of anger, he removed one of his shoes and proceeded to bang his desk at the United Nations in protest to a speech by Philippine delegate Lorenzo Sumulong. Members of Khrushchev’s own Communist delegation at the time went on record as expressing their own “embarrassment and displeasure” at the Soviet leader’s bizarre and “peasant-like behavior” of “shoe banging” which they felt reflected poorly on the Soviet Union. Khrushchev would later be removed as leader in 1964. (I suppose one could say, with some poetic license, that Khrushchev was finally . . . ‘given the shoe’ by his own Soviet hierarchy.

Television’s classic western “Gunsmoke” remains the longestrunning western series in history, running a full 20 seasons, from 1955 to 1975 (and can still be seen on reruns today, which means Gunsmoke is now picking up a new generation of loyal fans!).

John Wayne away from the big silver screen, the CBS executives had a total of 26 actors screen-tested to play the lead role of Matt Dillon, Marshall of Dodge City. The field was finally narrowed down to two actors: William Conrad (who was the voice of Marshall Matt Dillon on the Gunsmoke radio series (19521961), and Raymond Burr (who would win fame in TV’s Perry Mason and Ironside series). Both William Conrad and Raymond Burr became the front-runners for the role of U. S. Marshall Matt Dillion and, in fact, almost snagged the part in Gunsmoke. But, in the final analysis, both Conrad and Burr were rejected. Top CBS producers said they both: “were too fat.”
As history has it, James Arness – standing at 6’ 7” tall in his stocking feet – landed the role and became immortalized in the part as U. S. Marshall Matt Dillion of Dodge City, Kansas.
WHEN WERE THE WORDS “UNDER GOD” ADDED TO THE U. S. “PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE”? A. 1951 B. 1954 C. 1959 D. 1962

ESCONDIDO’S LARGEST CROP? A. Grapes B. Tomatoes C. Oranges D. Avocados
Mmmm, this may prove tricky for most. But, if you decided on “D” avocados, you are quite the quiz-master, or quiz-mistress! But, at one time the name Escondido was synonymous with grapes. Escondido was primarily an agriculture community mostly known for growing Muscat grapes, with even wineries dotting the north county region, and even Escondido’s primary park bearing the name of Grape Day Park. However, by the 1960s this changed and avocados became the largest local crop in Escondido, California. Avocados have turned out to be a $40-milliona-year agricultural produce in our city of Escondido, California. In essence, Escondido business is more rolling in guacamole than grape juice. By the way, Escondido – whose original inhabitants were the Luiseno Native Americans – had a 1960 population of only 16,377. Its current population is 151,613. How times have changed! WHAT WAS THE FIRST JAPANESE CAR SOLD IN AMERICA? A. Honda B. Datsun C. Mazda D. Toyota

The Escondido Police Department Traffic Unit conducted a DUI/Driver’s License checkpoint on April 20, 2018, at El Norte Parkway and Ash. Checkpoints are placed in locations that have the greatest opportunity for achieving drunk and drugged driving deterrence and provide the greatest safety for officers and the public. High Visibility Enforcements, which include DUI/Driver’s License checkpoints, have been shown to lower DUI deaths and injuries. A major component of these checkpoints are the deterrent effects it has on those who might drive alcohol or drug impaired, bringing about more awareness and encouraging everyone to use sober designated drivers.

(5 for suspended license, 16 for unlicensed driver, 10 for no insurance, 3 subjects were cited for allowing an unlicensed person to drive). • 2 Field sobriety tests • 1 Arrest for driving under the influence of a combination of drugs and alcohol • DUI educational material was distributed during the checkpoint Studies of California drivers have shown that 30 percent of drivers in fatal crashes had one or more drugs in their systems. A study of active
drivers showed more tested positive for drugs that may impair driving (14 percent) than did for alcohol (7.3 percent). Of the drugs, marijuana was most prevalent, at 7.4 percent, slightly more than alcohol. Drivers caught driving impaired can expect the impact of a DUI arrest to include jail time, fines, fees, DUI classes, license suspension and other expenses that can exceed $10,000 not to mention the embarrassment when friends and family find out.
The Escondido Police Department will be conducting additional DUI/Driver’s License Checkpoints on an ongoing basis.
Following are additional results from this event: • 2132 vehicles drove through the checkpoint. • 1412 vehicles were screened in primary. • 60 vehicles were sent to secondary screening (drivers who could not

Going back to my younger years, back when I was an Army recruit in Basic Training at Fort Ord, California, I remembered George Lee.
George Lee was a young Chinese man. Awkward, quiet, not at all athletic. I suppose the Army eventually found a place for him . . . but I've often thought he probably did not belong in the Army.
George Lee was the subject of ridicule from a lot of my barrack mates. Sometimes cruel taunts were sent his way.
One day in the chow hall I noticed George Lee sitting by himself at a table. I took my tray of food and sat down across from him. "Hiya, George. How's it going?"

Really enjoyed .Pete Peterson's article about MarineCorps Embassy Guards. Although I served in the Marine Corps for a while in the mid-1940's I can't recall ever hearing much about that duty. He certainly had an interesting experience and explained the requirements for embassy service very understandably.
Drivers whose only offense was being unlicensed to drive were given the opportunity to locate the registered owner of the vehicle to either take or assign possession of the vehicle to a licensed driver. 15 vehicles were released to the owner or a designated driver. During the checkpoint, 3 vehicles were impounded.

We didn't talk a whole lot more but I kinda sensed he relaxed a bit. I may even have detected a slight smile. He had, at long last, found at least one friend on this otherwise sometimes hostile Army base. A few weekends later we all got three day passes. I went into Monterey and Salinas. At Monterey we ate at a local restaurant on the pier then went over and watched the harbor seal bark and perform for tourists and lonely Army boys who threw food in the water.. That seal had us all rather well trained.
We returned to our barracks having had a pleasant day or two away from the Army base but having enjoyed no particularly adventurous weekend . . . and having met no girls. None. Nada. I think the parents of teenage and older girls probably advised their daughters to avoid soldier boys. They made all of $78 a month (I got $90 a month because I had time in the National Guard before joining the Army Reserve) . . . they would soon be moving away, being sent to all parts of the nation and the world. Bad idea to get involved with them. So, no girls were met.
In the barracks, later one evening, George Lee approached me . . . his only friend. "Dabit. I have someting show you!"
He opened up his wallet and there, in the center of the wallet, where most of us keep ID cards, or perhaps a photo or two . . . were two or three curly hairs. Turns out they were pubic hairs from a prostitute he had patronized on his three day weekend. George Lee had met a girl. A 'professional' girl . . . but, still, a girl.

"Now, Private Lee. Someone drops a hand grenade in this enclosure, or an enemy throws a live grenade into this enclosure. The correct procedure is to kick or throw that grenade into the trench and then drop to the ground immediately. When the grenade explodes its concussive effect will be directed straight up by the trench, and the explosive charge will be absorbed the the walls of the trench and/or the sandbags. You, being flat on the ground, will be safe. Do you understand, Private Lee?" "Yes suh."
"From prostitute," George Lee said.
"I am not a "sir" Private Lee. I am not an officer, I am a Sergeant. You do not address me as "sir." You address me as Sergeant, do you understand?!"
"Well, George, that's very interesting."
And I hadn't.
I didn't know quite what to say. "I have lot of fun, Dabit."
"Good, George. I'm happy for you."
George Lee was not only taunted by his barracks mates but by his trainers as well.
One day, when we were out in the field learning about hand grenades, the instructors gave us a safety demonstration. There was a sand-bagged enclosure of about 6' high, maybe 12' wide and 12' deep, front to back. Within the perimeter of this sand-bagged enclosure was a trench of maybe 2-3' in depth. The instructors called George Lee up as a 'volunteer.'
"That's better, Private Lee. Now, be alert to what I've just told you, Private Lee." "GRENADE!" . . . and the Sergeant drops the grenade on the ground and retreats behind the sandbags.
George Lee looks briefly at the grenade, spins awkwardly in the opposite direction and waddles away as fast as he can (which is not very fast.) Clearly, he did not follow directions.

made car exported out of Japan, shipped to the continental United States and first sold here in 1958. Toyota Motor Sales led the early charge to introduce Toyotas to mainland America as early as 1956, paving the way for future reality. On August 25, 1957, the first two Toyota Crown models docked in California but had to stay onboard the ship in compliance with U. S. driving laws and requirements. For example, headlights and other safety features were fitted after arrival. After receiving a California retail license on December 11, 1957, five Toyota dealerships were created in July of 1958. The first Toyota was sold in 1958 at a cost of $1,999. The downside at the time was that this early Toyota model struggled to keep up with the fast pace of American cars on smooth, fast-flowing blacktop driving roads. When this Toyota model eventually got up to 60 mph – a speed that was rare in Japan at the time – the car often shuddered and shook so much that the driver often could not see out of the rearview mirror. (Note: The American Honda Motor Company, Inc. (AHM) opened in Los Angeles on June 11, 1959, and was the first overseas “subsidiary” in North America, which included motorcycles. The first Honda car imported and sold in mainland America, however, wasn’t until 1969 and was a small Honda 600 hatchback (which is still, historically, preserved today by Honda historian &

WHICH CANDY HAD THE SLOGAN: “MELTS IN YOUR MOUTH, NOT IN YOUR HANDS”? A. Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups B. Hershey’s Kisses C. Kit Kat D. M&Ms
Elvis “The Pelvis” Presley had loads of hit records, but, if you chose “A” Heartbreak Hotel, well, you obviously have a “hunka-hunka-burnin’ love” for Elvis facts! Congratulations! But first, let’s clear away some cobwebs: Elvis Presley’s very first #1 hit single (even before Heartbreak Hotel) was “I Forgot to Remember to Forget” – but, it did not sell a million copies to earn a Gold Record. That honor goes to “Heartbreak Hotel” which not only climbed to #1 on the national charts in February of 1956 – but, it sold over one million copies, officially earning “The King” his first Gold Record.
Honda would create the very first Japanese car manufacturing plant inside the continental United States in 1982 at Marysville, Ohio. In this context, the Honda Accord was the first Japanese car (created in America) and sold in America. This often causes confusion as to which Japanese car was truly first-sold in America. Toyota is the correct answer, in 1958.)
To this very day, it happens to be the world’s most popular candy: M&Ms (in all its varieties). So, if you picked “D,” you have a sweet tooth for the right choice! M&Ms is the flagship candy of the Mars Wrigley candy empire and was first created in 1941. But, in 1954 a most ingenious ad campaign included the words: “Melts in your mouth, not in your hands!” which cemented its popularity as the most eaten candy on planet Earth.

WHAT WAS ELVIS PRESLEY’S FIRST NO. 1 “GOLD RECORD”? A. Heartbreak Hotel B. I Forgot to Remember to Forget C. Don’t Be Cruel D. Love Me Tender
IN 1967 WHAT WAS THE BIG MEDICAL BREAKTHROUGH? A. Polio Vaccine B. Birth Control Pill C. Kidney Transplant D. Human Heart Transplant
All the multiple choices listed above happened in different years other than 1967, except for one -- selection “D,” human heart transplant. By far, the biggest medical news in 1967 came on December 3, 1967, when the first human heart transplant took place! It captivated an entire world! In 1967, South African doctor, Christiaan (Chris) Barnard, successfully per-
formed the world’s first human-tohuman heart transplant at Groote Schuur Hospital, at Cape Town, South Africa. The heart recipient patient was a 53-year-old man, Lewis Washkansky. Washkansky was a dentist who received the heart of a woman, Denise Darvall, who had died in a car accident. Although Washkansky died of pneumonia 18 days after the transplant due to a weakened immune system, Dr. Christiaan Barnard considered the surgery a success because the heart was “not being stimulated by an electrical machine.”
Today, approximately 5,000 heart transplants are performed every year, worldwide, with about 2,000 of those transplants taking place in the United States. The average life expectancy after such a surgery is 9 to 10 years. The world’s longest-surviving heart transplant patient lived 33 years after his life-saving operation.
(Note: Louis Washkansky was the first human-to-human heart transplant recipient in 1967, however, he was actually the second human to receive a heart transplant: On January 24, 1964, Boyd Rush received a chimpanzee’s heart, although the patient in this case only survived an hour and did not regain consciousness.)

The correct answer is “D” 1969. At precisely 10:56 p.m. (Eastern Standard Time), on July 20, 1969, astronaut Neil Armstrong prepares to become the first human being to place a footprint on the surface of the moon. With more than a billion people watching from planet Earth on their televisions, he climbs down the ladder and proclaims to the world: “That’s one small step for (a) man, one giant leap for mankind.” Just weeks short of his 39th birthday, a 38-year-old Neil Armstrong is soon joined by his Apollo 11 companion, Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin who says of the lunar surface: “Magnificent desolation.” They explore the moon’s surface for 2 hours, leaving behind our American flag, a patch honoring the fallen Apollo 1 crew, and a plaque that reads: “Here men from the planet Earth first set foot upon the moon. July 1969 A. D. We came in peace for all mankind.” Neil Alden Armstrong died August 25, 2012, at the age of 82. THE FIRST TELEVISED PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE WAS IN WHAT YEAR? A. 1960 B. 1961 C. 1962 D. 1963
The first televised presidential debate occurred in 1960 between candidates John F. Kennedy and Richard M. Nixon. So if you picked “A” you should be elected quiz master extraordinaire! On September 26, 1960, the first-ever American presidential debate transpired with a ‘live’ televised audience of over 70million viewers out of a total U. S. population of 179 million people at the time, making it one of the mostwatched broadcasts in U. S. television history! In total, 4 televised debates took place.
According to historians, such as J. N. Druckman, “Television primes its audience to rely more on their perceptions of candidate image.” As such, the camera lens seemed “kinder” to John F. Kennedy over Nixon. With the new and unfamiliar format of television, Richard Nixon refused television makeup, not realizing that his image across America would be a very unflattering one: he appeared “ghostly,” drab and greylooking and without makeup he even appeared to have a “5 o’clock” facial shadow. All of these negative images coincided with Nixon’s suit color even blending in with the debate TV-background. Observers point out that John F. Kennedy appeared far more photogenic and “trustworthy,” oozing youth and vibrancy for a “brighter tomorrow.”
Analysts find it intriguing how the new medium of television ushered in a new paradigm of thinking and “packaging” and “selling” of a presidential candidate to the general populace. Political pundits point out the power of television vs radio; radio debates occur where images cannot be seen by the eye, as TV
demands. As historians point out: “If you were watching television on the night of September 26, 1960, you probably thought that the young Senator, John F. Kennedy, had won that night’s presidential debate. Yet, if you only heard the event on radio, then Vice President Richard M. Nixon was the clear winner.” However one puts a spin on it, the medium of television would usher in a new powerful tool through which America could glimpse images, facial emotions and, perhaps, see a last-minute change in their political vote. ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS: I wish to thank Graceland and Billboard Records for Elvis Presley fact-checking resources, as well as various university history departments for their eager assistance and encouragement in writing this subject matter on American culture. SUMMATION: I sincerely hope you enjoyed our journey back to the 1950s and 1960s, if only for a brief time. Obviously, we could not cover all the highlights (or “lowlights”) due to space limitations, but perhaps this article can encourage you to start your own journey via personal research, history books, library videos, etc. Until then, God bless you all, each and every one of you! And keep those emails coming!
Two of America's favorites were for entirely different reasons. Ford's Model T produced from 1908 to 1927 was the first mass assembly line produced vehicle. Attractive pricing was part of the trick, prices varied from $1,950 in 1908 to only $260 in 1925. The Model T was built from 1908 until 1927 with a record of 15,007,033 until 1972, when Volkswagen eclipsed the record with the Beetle. Henry Ford's quote, “give them any color they want as long as it's black” was for good reason, that being black paint dried faster than any other color and over 40 related undercarriage parts on the vehicle were painted black, so all this added up to a very efficient assembly-line. Black was the only color from 1914 to 1926. In the late 1920s 50% of the car market was controlled by Ford’s “ Tin Lizzie” being the star. The Jeep was born at the request of the federal government in 1938 due to an impending war. American Bantam built the prototype plus the first jeeps, but due to lack of financing this small company called on Willys Overland for help and they became the primary builder. As World War II started, Ford entered production of Army jeeps also so we had three manufacturers of World War II jeeps. After the war the Jeep was a survivor of bad parenting and was passed along like a stepchild from Willys to Kaiser to American Motors to Chrysler Corporation. The appearance of this square little utility vehicle with its forever famous face, (the grill) plus the multi-uses it offered in adverse conditions never lost favor with the buying public. Think about it - it looked the same for over 78 years. As a young kid I grew up owning three war surplus jeeps, one from each manufacturer, the Jeep with the most power was the Ford with a Ford tractor motor, but the best Jeep was the Willys.

Our young people are facing dangers that many parents aren't aware of. Fentanyl, a synthetic opioid that is 30 to 50 times more potent than heroin, can be disguised as over the counter medications like Xanax or aspirin, but kids have been killed who unknowingly take them. This session I introduced AB 3105 to increase penalties for selling fentanyl, a controlled Schedule II drug. Trafficking in Schedule II drugs currently results in county jail sentences of 3 to 5 years. Under my bill, the amount of fentanyl needed to trigger prison is lowered, recognizing that it only takes a small amount to kill or injure someone. Violators would be sentenced to 10 years to life in prison for trafficking in 20+ grams of a substance containing fentanyl -- the sentence would increase to 20 years to life if serious bodily injury or death occurs. If the drug trafficker has two or more felony convictions involving a controlled substance, they’d get life without parole.
The fentanyl problem has exploded in recent years. Our young people especially are at risk, because they may unsuspectingly take a pill from a friend or acquaintance that looks like Advil, but in reality was bought off the street and contains fentanyl. With a death reported every 19 minutes, drug overdose is the leading cause of accidental death in the United States. Fentanyl, the latest poison on our streets, is adding to that sad statistic.
As your Assembly representative, I will continue working to break the cycle of drug trafficking and abuse that devastates families and cuts short so many lives.

Man About Town Cont. from Page 4
The grenade, of course, was a dummy grenade. For training purposes. The entire bleacher section where we were all sitting, watching and listening to the demonstration, howled with laughter. There were about 40 of us trainees in the platoon and all were treated to a George Lee chuckle. Later on, we were given live grenades, told to pull the pin, throw, and drop to ground behind the sandbags. We all got through it . . . the grenades exploded away from the sandbagged enclosures and no one was hurt. I assume George Lee also made it through as when I saw him later that day he still had all his arms and legs.
George Lee was a bit of a slob. He didn't shower. It looked like he had ringworm or something on the scalp of his head. Someone in the barracks decided it was time that we gave George Lee a "GI Party." Normally, a GI Party means we all turn to with mops, brooms, soap and water, and scrub down the entire barracks. Tonight, George Lee was to get his very own "GI Party." I got roped into it and remember, in the dark of night, leaving my bunk and crawling along the floor to George Lee's bunk where I slid under his bunk and held the blankets while, on a signal, about 7 or 8 other recruits pounced on him and carried him off to the shower room, stripped him of his clothes, scrubbed him down with soapy brushes, rinsed him off, and gave him a towel to dry off. Someone then turned the lights on and we all returned to our bunks.
George Lee came out of the shower room, a towel wrapped around his waist.
He looked at me. Two of the saddest eyes I've ever seen and an utter look of hurt and disappointment was directed at me, his only friend in the barracks. Or at least the only one who had ever offered friendship. The only one he really trusted. He trusted me so much he even showed me the pubic hairs from his prostitute.
He didn't say a word . . . but the look on his face was enough.
I have never before or since . . . felt so small. I've often though of George Lee . . . wondering whatever happened to him.
Have even thought about looking him up. I assume he was from the Bay area . . . and lots of luck finding a Chinese guy named George Lee in San Francisco . . . who was at Fort Ord, in Basic Training . . .in 1957. He may not even still be living.
Still, I'd like to find George Lee.
And tell him how sorry and ashamed I am of myself ... and have been for all these years. Some things you just don't forget.

A Lot of History Passed in 79 Years
While some of the days I’ve witnessed over the past 79 years have been cloudy, for the most part it’s been a great ride – so far. During the middle years of the 20th century, America began to pull out of a Great Depression and World War to become the leader of the world – albeit a war-torn one. Since the days of Teddy Roosevelt and his “big stick” diplomacy, the United States had been pretty much an isolationist country after World War I. In rural America, the average citizen had never traveled more than 50 miles from home. Most rural homes used kerosene lanterns for light -electricity was for city folk. As World War II became the defining years of the 20th century; it moved America from that of agrarian to industrial.
The year 1939 was the year I began to witness history. It was the dawn of another global conflict. Europe was falling victim to military dictatorship, and here at home our nation was climbing out of crushing economic chaos.
The average income in America was $1,729, and you could pay rent for $28 per month, and, if you had the money, a new Ford or Chevy was $700. You could “fill ‘er up” for .10 cents a gallon, watch a movie for .25 cents, mail a letter for .3 cents, or buy a new house for $3,850. Headlines throughout 1939 were among history’s most dramatic: The New York World’s Fair spotlighted television, with RCA’s first public telecast; Italian dictator Benito Mussolini invaded neighboring Albania, while Francisco Franco’s troops captured Madrid, ending the Spanish Civil War. That year Germany signed a “non-aggression” treaty with the Soviet Union, giving Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler a pass to invade Poland from the west; the Soviet would attack from the east. On Sept. 1, 1939, World War II began when Hitler did indeed invade Poland. That blatant act of
aggression, by treaty, brought Great Britain and France into the war. The dawn of the nuclear age was launched when scientist Enrico Fermi successfully split the atom.
Here at home, the Baseball Hall of Fame was established in Cooperstown, N.Y.; the U.S. proclaimed neutrality from the European conflict; the first local food-stamp program was established in Rochester, N.Y., and following up on Fermi’s splitting of the atom, Albert Einstein informed President Franklin Roosevelt that nuclear chain reactions could create destructive bombs.
Peace advocates like aviator Charles Lindbergh and industrialist Henry Ford warned against any U.S. involvement in the World War. Businesswise, the electronic company of Hewlitt Packard was founded, and for the first time you could buy Lay’s potato chips in grocery stories. While there, you could buy 10 pounds of sugar for just .59 cents, a gallon of milk for .49 cents, coffee was .40 cents a pound, hamburger was .14 cents a pound, and a freshly-baked loaf of bread was .08 cents.
In 1939, the New York Yankees won the World Series of baseball (again), Byron Nelson won the U.S. Open in golf, and Wilbur Shaw raced to an astounding 115 mph to win the Indianapolis 500. The Boston Bruins won hockey’s Stanley Cup, Oregon was the NCAA basketball champions, Texas A&M took the NCAA football crown, and quarterback Nile Kinnick of the State University of Iowa won the Heisman Trophy. In 1939, that was the year Yankee first baseman Lou Gehrig missed his first baseball game in 15 years. His 1,230 consecutive gamesplayed was a record that stood for 56 years until Baltimore Orioles’ Cal Ripken, Jr. broke it in 1995. In 1939, the average American lived 59.7 years. “Cactus” Jack Garner was U.S Vice President, Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings, who wrote “The Yearling,” won the Pulitzer Prize, and Patricia Donnelly of Detroit was crowned Miss America. The combined progress made since 1939 has been the most comprehensive since the beginning of time. Man walked on the Moon during the last 79 years.
So, those of us who have lived 79 years and more have witnessed a great deal of world history, alas, some of it being repeated today. Although, I doubt we’ll ever again be able to buy a gallon of gasoline for a dime.

George is pet of the week at your Rancho Coastal Humane Society. He’s a 2-1/2 year old, 44 pound, Catahoula Leopard Dog mix.
Don’t be surprised if you visit the shelter to meet him and George is sitting on his crate. The view is better up there. He was transferred from another shelter through FOCAS.
The $145 adoption fee for George includes medical exam, vaccinations, neuter, 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.
Solstice, a 10-year-old Chow Chow mix, is a sweet senior looking for a loving home. Solstice was diagnosed with Hypothyroidism (insufficient levels of thyroid hormone), which is a common problem in dogs. Although he is feeling much better, his new family will need to keep up his treatment for this condition, which involves the daily administration of an oral thyroid supplement, and occasional follow up rechecks with a veterinarian. His adoption fee includes his neuter, permanent microchip identification, current vaccinations, 30 days worry free insurance from Trupanion Insurance and a certificate for a free veterinary exam! Solstice is available for adoption at San Diego Humane Society’s Escondido Campus at 3450 E Valley Parkway. To learn more about making him part of your family, please call (619) 299-7012.
Pastor Tom Fry (Retired) Church of the Nazarene
Our church recently announced On Line Giving. You know, text WXYZ to 12345 and your smart phone will charge your credit card or deduct your donation from your checking account. This is common with mortgage payments and other bills, but most churches are not early adopters when it comes to technology. So I wasn’t surprised, after the service, waiting in the coffee line, to hear someone say, “Pretty soon we won’t even have to leave home to go to church.” It’s close.
Podcasts replace the sermon, You Tube instead of a worship band, announcements on the website or Facebook, and now a smart phone has replaced the offering plates. It isn’t a bad thing. It’s how younger
It reminds me of the little boy who called for his mother during a middle of the night lightning and thunderstorm. Mom called back, “Don’t worry, Jesus is in your room with you.”
“I know that,” the boy called back, “but right now I need someone with skin on.” Skin is what is missing from “technochurch.”
It may be the fellowship or simply the gathering together, but we need to shake hands, to hug, to smile at one another, to look eye to eye, to feel a supportive arm around our shoulder as we share a great burden with the Lord in prayer. Not even Facebook can do that. Church cannot be reduced to a series of keystrokes and a few images on a screen. As mega investor Warren Buffet said, we need some skin in the game. We need to invest ourselves in the real time, face-to-face meeting of the people that we call “our church.”

San Marcos • Mayor Jim Desmond
Building and maintaining public amenities
Do you ever wonder what some of those line items are on your taxes?
Community Facilities Districts (CFD), commonly referred to as Mello-Roos Districts, help to finance the maintenance of San Marcos’s public amenities and local facilities including storm drains, street lights, traffic signals, medians and parkways.
These community districts set aside more than $5.5 million each year for police and fire protection facilities and services. Other neighborhood specific CFDs pay
debt service on bonds that were issued to finance infrastructure development.
Today, more than 50 percent of all taxable properties within San Marcos are in at least one CFD. Special taxes are levied annually against properties within these districts to finance authorized public services and facilities. The special tax then appears on the property tax bill issued by the County of San Diego. To learn more about Mello-Roos taxes that may be on your property, visit www.sanmarcos.net/cfd or contact the San Marcos Finance Department at (760) 744-1050, ext. 4506 or CFDInfo@san-marcos.net.

they were willing to try it out. They were both very much in favor of it.
The doctor set the pain transfer to 10% for starters, explaining that even 10% was probably more pain than the father had ever experienced before. But as the labor progressed, the husband felt fine and asked the doctor to go ahead and kick it up a notch. The doctor then adjusted the machine to 20% pain transfer. The husband was still feeling fine. The doctor checked the husband's blood pressure and was amazed at how well he was doing. At this point they decided to try for 50%. The husband continued to feel quite well. Since the pain transfer was obviously helping out the wife considerably, the husband encouraged the doctor to transfer ALL the pain to him. The wife delivered a healthy baby with virtually no pain. She and her husband were ecstatic. When they got home, the mailman was dead on the porch. ••••• Officer's First Patrol
A rookie police officer was assigned to ride in a cruiser with an experienced partner. A call came over the car's radio telling them to disperse some people who were loitering.
The officers drove to the street and observed a small crowd standing on a corner. The rookie rolled down his window and said, "Let's get off the corner."
No one moved, so he barked again, "Let's get off the corner!" Intimidated, the group of people began to leave, casting puzzled glances in his direction. Proud of his first official act, the young policeman turned to his partner and asked, "Well, how did I do?"
"Pretty good," replied the veteran, "especially since this was a bus stop."
Botox makes it that much easier for people to lie to you with a straight face. ••••• Oh a teenage girl says "Like,this coffee stuff has like, energizer stuff in it." It made me, like, laugh. Minnesota bank robbed!
On Friday, A hooded robber burst into a Minnesota bank and, at gunpoint, forced the tellers to load their cash into a plain brown bag. As the robber approached the door, one brave customer grabbed the hood and pulled it off, revealing the robbers face. Without a moments hesitation, the robber shot the customer. He then looked around the bank and noticed one of the tellers looking straight at him. The robber instantly shot & killed him also. Everyone in the bank, by now horrified, stared down at the floor in silence.
The robber yelled, "Well, did anyone else see my face?" There was a long moment of dead silence in which everyone was terrified to speak.
Then, one old Norwegian named Ole cautiously raised his hand and said, "My wife got a pretty good look at you." ••••• A woman in a supermarket is following a grandfather and his badly behaved 3-year-old grandson. It's obvious to her that he has his hands full with the child screaming for candy in the candy aisle, cookies in the cookie aisle and for fruit, cereal and soda in the other aisles.
Meanwhile, Grandpa is working his way around, saying in a controlled voice, "Easy William, we won't be long . . . easy, boy." Another outburst and she hears the grandpa calmly say: "It's okay, William, just a couple more minutes and we'll be out of here. Hang

Congratulations Vista Leadership Class
Participants from the Spring V i s t a Leadership Academy were recognized this past Tuesday at the Vista City Council. The City of Vista is proud of its 16th 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 eight weekly sessions 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 2017 participants! For more information on the program, please contact the City Clerk’s Office at 760.639.6125.

Another Fun Event in Oceanside
Oceanside Outrigger Canoe Club (OOCC) will again be holding the infamous “Brew vs. Berry” beer and wine tasting event on April 28th at Oceanside’s own Apotheque Spa located at 322 N Cleveland St, Oceanside.
This event directly supports North County San Diego recreational and racing paddling activities. In addition to encouraging the sport of Polynesian outrigger paddling, OOCC promotes community outreach. Core values such as respect for the ocean, family, integrity and teamwork are characteristics embodied by membership and club supporters. OOCC also provides afterschool youth paddling programs, supports wounded-warriors and par-

We'll be home in five minutes, stay cool, William." Very impressed, the woman goes outside where the grandfather is loading his groceries and the boy into the car. She says to the elderly man, "It's none of my business, but you were amazing in there. I don't know how you did it. That whole time you kept your composure, and no matter how loud and disruptive he got, you just calmly kept saying 'things would be okay.' William is very lucky to have you as his grandpa."
"Thanks," said the grandpa, "but I'm William.

two had the only empty chair in the entire bistro. Sure enough a beautiful solo Parisian woman came to his table and asked him something in French, a language he was totally inept with, so he motioned to the vacant chair and invited her to join him.
He tried to speak to her in English, but that was useless as she spoke no English. After a couple of minutes of trying to communicate with her, he took a napkin and drew a picture of a wine glass and showed it to her. She nodded, so he ordered a glass of wine for her.
After sitting together at the table for a while, he took another napkin, and drew a picture of a plate with food on it, and she nodded. They left the bistro and found a quiet cafe that featured a small group playing romantic music. They ordered dinner, after which he took another napkin and drew a picture of a couple dancing. She nodded, and they got up to dance. They danced until the cafe was about to close and the band was packing up. Back at their table, the young lady took a napkin and drew a picture of a fourposter bed. To this day, Sven has no idea how she figured out he was in the furniture business.

The first thing we’ll do is fill out a work order form listing the problem and your contact information. Then we list the items that describe your PC, the make, model, hard drive, CPU and RAM. This information lets us tell you what your PC is worth. Next we check it out and give you a repair estimate. So far it hasn’t cost you a cent and you know what your PC is worth, what it will cost to repair it. We can also tell you what it is worth as a trade in. With this information you have four options. You can leave it and dash out the door cursing Bill Gates, you can take it home and bury it in the back yard, you can tell us to go ahead with the repair or you can trade it in on a new or refurb desktop or notebook.
Most long term PC users have slowly added and changed settings over the years. A new PC or your old PC with a new Windows OS will have the Windows “default” settings. That means it won’t have all the shortcuts (icons) on the desktop and there may be other differences that you will have to accommodate. There really isn’t an alternative. When your PC’s Windows OS is corrupt, damaged or badly infected you really have only two choices, reinstall the OS or throw the computer in the trash. If you have your data (documents and pictures) backed up, we can reinstall Windows, all drivers and updates, an anti-virus, an office suite and Adobe reader/flash for $105. If, in addition, we need to save your files
it adds another $45.
When Windows must be reinstalled in order to repair a desktop or notebook or when you get a new or refurb PC, you may encounter “password problems.” Email, Face Book, your home WiFi, all of these things and many more require access passwords. Your trusty old PC remembered them for you, but now it won’t. Are your passwords written somewhere? Do you remember them? If not you will need to go to each account and request password changes. They will ask you the security question you selected when you set up the account. Let’s hope you still remember the name of your first dog.
If you decide to repair your PC or trade it in there a few things to remember. While hardware replacements like memory, power supplies, RAM, DVDs and even some hard drive replacements may leave your PC operating exactly as it did before it failed, other repairs will change the way your PC looks and acts. Even when we copy all the files from you old PC, the new one will not look like your old PC. When the repair process on your old PC involves re-installing a corrupt Windows OS (operating system,) even though your old files are on the hard drive, the “desk top” will not be the same. Why?
