The Blue People of Troublesome Creek

Volume 47 - No. 17

Luna Stacy possessed the good health common to the blue people bearing at least 13 children before she died at 84. The clinic rarely saw her and never for anything serious.
Blame it on a French orphan by the name of Martin Fugate.
He claimed a land grant in 1820 and settled on the banks of eastern Kentucky’s Troublesome Creek. No mention of his skin color is made in the early histories of the area, but family lore has it that Martin himself was blue. The odds against it were incalculable, but Martin Fugate managed to find and marry a woman who carried the same recessive gene. His red-headed American wife, was the former Elizabeth Smith, whose skin, it is said “was as pale as the mountain laurel that blooms every spring around the creek hollows.”
Benjy Stacy was born in a modern hospital near Hazard, Kentucky, not far from Troublesome Creek. He inherited his father's lankiness and his mother's red hair but what he got from his great, great, great grandfather was dark blue skin! The doctors were astonished, not so the parents, but the boy was rushed off to a medical clinic in Lexington (University of Kentucky Medical School). Two days of tests showed no cause for Benjy's blue skin. Benjy's grandmother Stacy asked the doctor's if they had heard of the blue Fugates of Troublesome Creek. Put on that track, they concluded that Benjy's condition was inherited. Benjy lost his blue tint within a few weeks and now he is about as normal a 7-year old boy as you might imagine. His lips and fingernails still turn a purplish blue when he gets cold or angry and that trait was exploited by the medical students back when Benjy was an infant. They would gather around his crib and try to get him to cry so they could witness the lips and fingernails turn blue. Dark blue lips and fingernails are the only traces of Martin Fugate's legacy left in the boy; that, and the recessive gene that has shaded many of the Fugates and their kin blue for the past 162 years.
The Fugates had seven children, four of whom were reported to be blue in color. They were away in the remote section of Kentucky and folks just naturally tended to marry folks that lived closest to them. Never mind the fact that these newlyweds were, more often than not, kin to one another. Likely first cousins at least.
Fugates would marry other Fugates . . . but sometimes they’d branch out and marry Combses, Smiths, Ritchies, and Stacys.
They all lived in isolation from “the real world,” bunched up in log cabins up and down the hollows so it just seemed natural to marry your neighbor. As a result, the clan kept multiplying and intermarrying and interbreeding. "When they settled this country back then, there was no roads. It was hard to get out, so they intermarried," says Dennis Stacy, a 51year-old coal miner and amateur genealogist who has filled a loose-leaf notebook with the laboriously traced blood lines of several local families.
Stacy counts Fugate blood in his own veins. "If you'll notice," he observes, tracing lines on his family's chart, which lists his mother's and his father's great grandfather as Henley Fugate, "I'm kin to myself." It had been 162 years since the phenomenon first was noticed to the point where an explanation for the phenomenon developed. And an apparent cure. Martin and Elizabeth Fugate's blue children had multiplied in this natural isolation tank.
Carrie Lee Kilburn, a nurse at the rural medical center called Homeplace Center referred to the daughter of Levy Fugate, Luna, as "the bluest woman I ever saw. Luna was bluish all over. Her lips were as dark as a bruise.." Levy had married a Ritchie girl and bought 200 acres of rolling land along Ball Creek. The couple had 8 children, including Luna. A fellow by the name of John Stacy spotted Luna at Sunday services of the Old Regular Baptist Church

Then, in 1999, after having read a genealogy of the Fugate family, Benjamin Stacy sent the following message:
The theatrical ‘blue people’ - part of the Blue Man Group that frequents Las Vegas Show Lounges. before the turn of the century. Stacy courted her, married her, and moved from Troublesome Creek to make a living in timber on her daddy's land. John Stacy still lives on Lick Branch of Ball Creek. Stacy recalls that his father-in-law, Levy Fugate, was "part of the family that showed blue. All them old fellers way back then was blue. One of em - I remember seeing him when I was just a boy - Blue Anze, they called him. Most of them old people went by that name - the blue Fugates. It run in that generation who lived up and down Ball Creek." "They looked like anybody else, ‘cept they had the blue color," Stacy said.
Stacy says, sitting in a chair in his plaid flannel shirt and suspenders, next to a cardboard box where a small black piglet, kept as a pet, is squealing for his bottle, "I couldn't tell you what caused it."
The only thing Stacy can't or won't remember is that his wife Luna was blue. When asked ahout it, he shakes his head and stares steadfastly ahead. It would be hard to doubt this gracious man except that you can't find another person who knew Luna who doesn't remember her as being blue.

From: Benjamin Arnold Stacy Subject: Fugate Pedigree Date: Sun, 14 Mar 1999
To Whom It May Concern:
My name is Benjamin Arnold Stacy, Ben for short. I am the "Benjy" (misspelled in the original article in Science 82) mentioned in the article. My mother's maiden name is Hilda B. Godsey. I was surprised to see that someone had taken the time to map the genealogy of my family. I would like to thank you for taking that interest, because it was something that I had wanted to do my self. I do not know that much about methemoglobinemia and happened to come across this web site while searching.
Just for your information, I am 24 years old now and am in my senior year of college at Eastern Kentucky University. The color of my lips and finger nails usually draws some attention, but mostly out of concern for my health or curiosity. I have had no major health problems related to the disorder and simply try to live an average life in spite of being "blue." Again, thank you for your efforts.

Madison Cawein began hearing rumors about the blue people when he went to work at the University of Kentucky's Lexington medical clinic in 1960. "I'm a hematologist, so something like that perks up my ears," Cawein says, sipping on whiskey
Give Us This Day Our Daily Chuckle This week, a compendium of wit, wisdom and neat stuff you can tell at parties. Enjoy!
Practical Joker: while creating husbands, God promised women that good and ideal husbands would be found in all corners of the world. And then he made the earth round.
That God - he's such a joker. •••• As a chopsticks user, I am completely self-taught. Also, sorry for stabbing you in the eyeball. •••• Goldman Sachs isn't content to sell you the Brooklyn Bridge - they also bet on the bridge to collapse. •••• I was in a minor accident this morning. The driver of the other car was a midget. He got out of the car, came storming up to my car and bellowed, "I want you to know I'm really not happy!" I said, "Okay, well then which one are you?"
sours and letting his mind slip back to the summer he spent "tromping around the hills looking for blue people."
Cawein would drive back and forth between Lexington and Hazard, an eight-hour ordeal before the tollway was built, and scour the hills looking for the blue people he'd heard rumors about. The American Heart Association had a clinic in Hazard, and it was there that Cawein met "a great big nurse" who offered to help. Her name was Ruth Pendergrass, and she had been trying to stir up medical interest in the blue people ever since a dark blue woman walked into the county health department one bitterly cold afternoon and asked for a blood test. "She had been out in the cold and she was just blue!" recalls Pendergrass, who is now 69 and retired from nursing. "Her face and her fingernails were almost indigo blue. It like to scared me to death! She looked like she was having a heart attack. I just knew that patient was going to die right there in the health department, but she wasn't a'tall alarmed. She told me that her family was the blue Combses who lived up on Ball Creek. She was a sister to one of the Fugate women." About this same time, another of the blue Combses, named Luke, had taken his sick wife up to the clinic at Lexington. One look at Luke was enough to "get those doctors down here in a hurry," says Pendergrass, who joined Cawein to look for more blue people. Trudging up and down the hollows, fending off "the two mean dogs that everyone had in their front yard," the doctor and the nurse would spot someone at the top of a hill who looked blue and take off in wild pursuit. By the time they'd get to the top, the person would be gone. Finally, one day when the frustrated doctor was idling inside the Hazard clinic, Patrick and Rachel Ritchie walked in.
Checked into a motel a couple nights ago. Laid down on the bed and noticed a bible on the bedstand. Opened it up. Inside was a note that said, "If you have drinking problem, call this number." I called the number.
It was a liquor store. •••• He wasn't his mother's favorite; and he was an only child. •••• 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. It didn't work out.
I learned you can't have your Kate and Edith, too. •••• Will someone please explain to me what "occasional irregularity" is? •••• A married couple went to the hospital to have their baby delivered. Upon their arrival, the doctor said he had invented a new machine that would transfer a portion of the mother's labor pain to the father. He asked if 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
"They were bluer'n hell," Cawein says. "Well, as you can imagine, I really examined them. After concluding that there was no evidence of heart disease, I said 'Aha!' I started asking them questions: 'Do you have any relatives who are blue?' then I sat down and we began to chart the family."
Cawein remembers the pain that showed on the Ritchie brother's and sister's faces. "They were really embarrassed about being blue," he said. "Patrick was all hunched down in the hall. Rachel was leaning against the wall. They wouldn't come into the waiting room. You could tell how much it bothered them to be blue." After ruling out heart and lung diseases, the doctor suspected methemoglobinemia, a rare hereditary blood disorder that results from excess levels of methemoglobin in the blood. Methemoglobin which is blue, is a nonfunctional form of the red hemoglobin that carries oxygen. It is the color of oxygen-depleted blood seen in the blue veins just below the skin.
If the blue people did have methemoglobinemia, the next step was to find out the cause. It can be brought on by several things: abnormal hemoglobin formation, an enzyme deficiency, and taking too much of certain drugs, including vitamin K, which is essential for blood clotting and is abundant in pork liver and vegetable oil.
Cawein drew "lots of blood" from the Ritchies and hurried back to his lab. He tested first for abnormal hemoglobin, but the results were negative. Stumped, the doctor turned to the medical literature for a clue. He found references to methemoglobinemia dating to the turn of the century, but it wasn't until he came across E. M. Scott's 1960 report in the Journal of Clinical Investigation (vol. 39, 1960) that the
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.
Every family has one weird relative.
If you don’t know who it is, then it’s probably you. •••• Had the munchies this afternoon and decided to experiment.
The result? Norwegian Pasghetti ala lyle.
answer began to emerge.
Scott was a Public Health Service doctor at the Arctic Health Research Center in Anchorage who had discovered hereditary methemoglobinemia among Alaskan Eskimos and Indians. It was caused, Scott speculated, by an absence of the enzyme diaphorase from their red blood cells. In normal people hemoglobin is converted to methemoglobin at a very slow rate. If this conversion continued, all the body's hemoglobin would eventually be rendered useless. Normally diaphorase converts methemoglobin back to hemoglobin. Scott also concluded that the condition was inherited as a simple recessive trait. In other words, to get the disorder, a person would have to inherit two genes for it, one from each parent. Somebody with only one gene would not have the condition but could pass the gene to a child. Scott's Alaskans seemed to match Cawein's blue people. If the condition were inherited as a recessive trait, it would appear most often in an inbred line.
Cawein needed fresh blood to do an enzyme assay. He had to drive eight hours back to Hazard to search out the Ritchies, who lived in a tapped-out mining town called Hardburly. They took the doctor to see their uncle, who was blue, too. While in the hills, Cawein drove over to see Zach (Big Man) Fugate, the 76-year-old patriarch of the clan on Troublesome Creek. Zach took the doctor even farther up Copperhead Hollow to see his Aunt Bessie Fugate, who was blue. Bessie had an iron pot of clothes boiling in her front yard, but she graciously allowed the doctor to draw some of her blood.

"So I brought back the new blood and set up my enzyme assay," Cawein continued. "And by God, they didn't have the enzyme diaphorase. I looked at other enzymes and nothing was wrong with them. So I knew we had the defect defined.'' Just like the Alaskans, their blood had accumulated so much of the blue molecule that it overwhelmed the red of normal hemoglobin that shows through as pink in the skin of most Caucasians.
Once he had the enzyme deficiency isolated, methylene blue sprang to Cawein's mind as the "perfectly obvious" antidote. Some of the blue people thought the doctor was slightly addled for suggesting that a blue dye could turn them pink. But Cawein knew from earlier studies that the body has an alternative method of converting methemoglobin back to normal. Cawein chose methylene blue because it had been used successfully and safely in other cases and because it acts quickly. Cawein packed his black bag and rounded up Nurse Pendergrass for the big event. They went over to Patrick and Rachel Ritchie's house and injected each of them with 100 milligrams of methylene blue.
''Within a few minutes. the blue color was gone from their skin," the doctor said. "For the first time in their lives, they were pink. They were delighted." "They changed colors!" remembered Pendergrass. "It was really something exciting to see." The doctor gave each blue family a supply of methylene blue tablets to take as a daily pill. The drug's effects are tempo-

rary, as methylene blue is normally excreted in the urine. One day, one of the older mountain men cornered the doctor. "I can see that old blue running out of my skin," he confided. Before Cawein ended his study of the blue people, he returned to the mountains to patch together the long and twisted journey of Martin Fugate's recessive gene. From a history of Perry County and some Fugate family Bibles listing ancestors, Cawein has constructed a fairly complete story.
The story demonstrated that as coal mining and the railroads brought progress to Kentucky, the blue Fugates started moving out of their communities and marrying other people. The strain of inherited blue began to disappear as the recessive gene spread to families where it was unlikely to be paired with a similar gene. Cawein and his colleagues published their research on hereditary diaphorase deficiency in the Archives of Internal Medicine in April, 1964. He hasn't studied the condition for years. Even so, Cawein still gets calls for advice.
The doctor was later approached by the producers of the television show "That's Incredible." They wanted to parade the blue people across the screen in their weekly display of human oddities. Cawein would have no part of it, and he related with glee the news that a film crew sent to Kentucky from Hollywood fled the "two mean dogs in every front yard" without any film. Cawein cheers their bad luck not out of malice but out of a deep respect for the blue people of Troublesome Creek.
"They were poor people," concurs Nurse Pendergrass, "but they were good."

The Paper • Page 4 • April 27, 2017 City of Escondido Appoints New Fire Chief
Following the recent retirement of Chief Russ Knowles, Interim City Manager Jeffrey Epp has named Rick Vogt as the new Fire Chief for the City of Escondido. Chief Vogt started with the City of Escondido in 2015 as the Division Chief for Training and EMS, and was promoted to Deputy Chief of Operations in 2016.
Chief Vogt’s career in fire services began over 30 years ago as a volunteer firefighter for the City of Palm Desert. He subsequently became a firefighter for the City of Temecula/Cal Fire, was appointed Station Captain for Riverside County/Cal Fire and served as Administrative and Field Battalion Chief for the City of San Marcos just prior to coming to the City of Escondido.
“Chief Vogt is the ideal candidate to continue the traditions of excellence, efficiency, integrity and outstanding public service that characterize the Escondido Fire Department,” said Interim City Manager Jeffrey Epp.
The announcement came as a bit of a surprise to many Escondido residents as the previous Fire Chief, Russ Knowles, had been in office less than a year. Recently he was on administrative leave but upon his return was reportedly relieved of his command. Knowles was named fire chief last year and took over June 5, 2016. He succeeded Chief Mike Lowry, who was chief for 34 years. Knowles is a 25-year veteran of the force. It is unknown at this time why the chief was terminated. So far, no comment from city officials
Man About Town
Had a rather pleasant experience yesterday.
Knocking out a lot of work in the office when the doorbell rang. Went to the door and there were two Mormon missionaries. They didn't have to tell me they were Mormons. It's pretty easy to spot them. Dark slacks, white shirts, usually short sleeved, a tie; well groomed, always polite.
Before they had a chance to introduce themselves I swung the door open and said, "Mormon Missionaries! Some of my favorite people! I'm not a Christian, but if I were, I think I'd become a Mormon. I really admire the faith. Come on in!"
They did. They sat down and we talked. Didn't talk religion. Told them I did not care to be prosletised but would love to visit with them. They respected that and we just had a nice old fashioned visit.
on why Chief Knowles was relieved.
Homeless Encampment Policed and Cleaned Up
Thanks to an Escondido resident who is active in community affairs, Patti Thompson, the city moved in quickly to clear the area behind the police and fire headquarters of brush and debris. The residents of the homeless encampment picked up their gear and moved elsewhere.
Patti Thompson spoke during the public forum section of the city council meeting on April 5. She also got the attention of the public through social media as well as calling several local TV stations. It took just two days for the city to react and clean up the site after a delay of four years where the encampment had been ignored, even though it was adjacent to the Public Safety building where police and fire department staffers came and went on a daily basis.
Thompson has a very active Escondido Friends Facebook page and had commented on the day of the clean-up, “In the week and a half alone, I discovered we only have 30 city workers who clean the city. Five police in a unit that deal directly with the Homeless. The area Encampment was just cleaned up this morning and the residents say it’s been 4 years since it was cleaned. However, the city has a long log of clean ups as early as 6 months ago but has not been fenced so the same people move back in and are stealing from residents, hoarding trash and belongings they feel are not trash. It is an ongoing serious cycle our City officials need to find a solution for.”
Thompson said, “The EPD (Escondido Police Department) offers them programs every time they have contact with them. Some take the help, and the others who are the repeat prob-
Elders Tippotts and Stoddard were their names. One was from Nebraska, the other, Utah. When I learned of the Nebraska native I immediately begin to sing . . . "There is no place like Nebraska, dear old Nebraska U . . ." he, of course, knew the song but to my great amazement, he was not a big football fan. Neither of them were. Both were 18 months into their 24 month mission. The young man from Nebraska was going to enroll at BYU upon completing his mission, and study Engineering. The other was going to Utah State and pursue a degree in business ad.
There are apparently around 30 missionaries in Escondido, each with their own assigned territory. I suggested one day that if they enjoyed Italian food we'd take them to Sorrento's in San Marcos (a superb Italian eatery). They advised me that they weren't allowed to go out of their assigned territory. Each missionary team has an area where they work and live. We respect that. There are plenty of good restaurants in Escondido.
I told them of a good friend of mine, Randy Knight, a salesman for Lexus of Escondido (and who sold me my great Toyota Avalon). His son is a missionary in Mexico and posts his diary on Facebook. I enjoy reading his accounts. Both of these missionaries knew of the Knight family. I asked them what happened when you had two missionaries who had personal conflicts. One didn't like the other and

lems, do not ask for help, or take help. They eventually have to be arrested for the trouble they cause and they work their way through the system. As I understand it, they are on a first name basis with the officers because the EPD does care about their welfare. EPD doesn’t want to see someone in jail. They try to give them every opportunity for a hand up.” There are an estimated 2,000 homeless in North County.

There were a lot of happy, but tired, smiles Sunday afternoon as the Hidden Valley Kiwanis Foundation of Escondido wound up their 20th annual trout derby with what appeared to be an increase of revenue over last year’s event.
Jim Mac Isaac, the Chairman for the event, said we generated over 1000 fishing permits, adults, seniors, and youth combined.
Last year the Derby netted around $13,500 and Mac Isaac said he thought we exceeded last year’s total. Hopefully, they will have exceeded $15,000 this year.
All funds raised at this event are turned right back into the community with the bulk of the revenue going to youths and community organizations that serve youth. “That’s the Kiwanis mission,” said Fred Wollman, Club president.
“We serve youth with scholarships, outings for recreational and educational purposes, we sponsor Key Clubs, the high school equivalent of Kiwanis - if there are families in need, we help provide for them. It’s a great organization with great people forming the membership. I couldn’t be more proud, leading this organization.”
The Kiddie Pond was a popular focal point on Saturday with over 200 Bluegill being caught by young kids under 8. They got to fish free and both bait and tackle were supplied by the Escondido Senior Anglers association.
When the kids left the fishing dock with their trophy fish (most of whom had caught their very first fish ever) they received a sticker on their shirts sayind “I caught my first fish at Dixon Lake!” They also had their photo taken, often with mom and dad as well, in front of a big banner describing the event. This Kiddie Pond event was sponsored by long time businessman and philanthropist, Arie de Jong. Unfortunately, come Sunday morning most of the Bluegill were gone so the Kiddie Pond had to be canceled. It is unclear whether birds (Cormorants or Pelicans) snatched the birds, or whether poachers came in after the day had ended and fished out the Kiddie Pond.
Next year, part rangers and Kiwanis officials agreed, their will be more security for the Kiddie Ponds and netting will be placed over the Kiddie Ponds to prevent birds having access to the fish but also to dissuade poachers. (It’s very hard to catch fish by dropping a line through a net.) In spite of this disappointment all fishermen and boaters appeared to be delighted with the Derby as well as the outstanding weather . . . a bit warm on Saturday, perfect on Sunday.

Church Announces New Community Garden – The Trinity Episcopal Church at 845 Chestnut, Escondido, has received a City permit for Trinity Neighborhood Garden (TNG). The church in Old Escondido has had this property since the 60s and the garden will be located to the rear of the church on an underutilized section of property. Trinity decided a garden would be a perfect opportunity for everyone in the area to participate. The infrastructure is being set up for this new garden and will be ready for late planting in May or June. The first educational speaker will be Farmer Roy Wilburn, master gardener for Sunshine Care in Poway, who will talk on “How to Prepare Your Soil” at 9:30am on May 6th, onsite.

Guests will be able to enjoy tastes of traditional Jewish cuisine -- entrees, appetizers and desserts -- with aromas and flavors that make you feel like you're back in Grandma's kitchen. A New York-style deli with a full kosher grill and several homemade Mediterranean dishes are among the featured foods. “Whether you’re looking for kosher, vegetarian or a place to sit and enjoy a glass of beer, the Jewish Food Festival delivers something for everyone,” promises event director Richard Stern. “We’re talking about a serious food festival here,” said Stern. "And no, you don't have to be Jewish to love great Jewish food.” For the first time, the event will also feature a wine and beer garden. Craft sales and demonstrations, live entertainment, much of it provided by talented temple members and ensembles, and children's activity areas also highlight the festival. Demonstrations by Deborah Scott, executive chef/partner for the Cohn Restaurant Group, Ron Oliver, Marine Room chef de cuisine, and Nicoletta Grippo, recently chef at La Scuola di Eatery in New York City, complement the one-of-a-kind culinary experience. Other chefs may be added as the event approaches.

The Film “Dog by Dog” Screening in Encinitas – On May 7th, the first screening in San Diego of the powerful film “Dog by Dog” will be held at the La Paloma Theater, 471 So. Coast Hwy 101, Encinitas, 92024. This documentary is about an examination of efforts in the U.S. to tighten regulations on commercial dog kennels, known as “puppy mills,” where dogs are considered livestock and kept without ade4quate regard for their welfare. This inspiring and educational film will impact your view on the USDA and their control over the state of welfare of man’s best friend. Funds raised from the screening will sponsor spay/neuter clinics in Escondido and National City, and educational materials/advertisements on adopting a pet vs purchasing from a ‘pet store.’ These cities were chosen because they both: allow pet store businesses (selling imported puppy-mill pets); have a high pet overpopulation rate; have a large number of ferals, unclaimed strays and relinquishments/intakes at local shelters; and demographically are lower-income households. There will be a VIP Reception at 11:30am, followed by general admission at 12:30pm. In addition to other VIP’s, film director Christopher Grimes will be in attendance and conduct an audience Q&A session following the screening. Pre-sale tickets are $10/general admission ($15/at the door); $18/VIP Reception, by pre-sale only.

A Pothole in the Wallet
Special interests and bought-off legislators recently passed the largest gasoline tax increase in California history, probably in American history! And not one new highway mile will be built to help reduce congestion.....not one!
Last session, I introduced AB X114 during the transportation special session. My bill required a formal commitment in the State Budget General Fund to provide $1 billion annually for transportation without raising taxes, including $500 million for highway upgrades and $500 million for local roads. According to revenue forecasts by the non-partisan Legislative Analyst’s Office, revenues were sufficient to fund education and the state’s Rainy Day Fund and still dedicate $1 billion to transportation. My bill was part of a nine-point, $6.6 billion plan to pay for transportation infrastructure and roads using existing tax dollars. Unlike the Governor’s new gas tax plan which doesn’t address gridlock or highway expansion, these funds

Palomar’s Black Pioneer Featured at History Museum - The life and legend of San Diego County's first Black settler, the local folk hero Nate Harrison, and his life on Palomar Mountain is profiled in a new exhibit at the Valley Center History Museum. A collection of photos and artifacts documents the life of Harrison, a former slave who became a popular 19th century figure among locals and visitors after he homesteaded on the old west grade road leading to Smith Mountain, later renamed Palomar. For 50 years, he greeted motorists with cool water and kind words as they headed to the mountain top. Harrison's original one-room cabin is gone, but it is recalled in multiple photographs and an oil painting by noted Western artist Marjorie

would have supported congestion relief, road maintenance and mass transit. Unfortunately, the Democrat majority refused to consider the plan and none of the bills were allowed a hearing or floor vote.
Transportation funds from existing gas taxes have been raided to the tune of $1 billion annually for other uses, even though the money was promised for transportation by untruthful politicians. With this new tax, every time you fill your tank you will pay about $16 in taxes and fees! In my floor speech, I asked for an audit of where all this money has gone.
Our gasoline taxes are already among nation’s highest. If transportation was a priority to majority politicians, it would already be budgeted, not an after-thought excuse for tax increases. Our highways need an upgrade, but misplaced priorities by the governing majority should not result in gouging hard working men and women. Californians deserve better.

vice versa. They said, "we just have to learn to deal with it." Which is good. That's the real world and sometimes you have to deal with people who irritate you. Good, realistic training.
We poured them each a glass of apple juice, gave them each a bottle of water, and offered to take them to lunch on another day. (Mormon missionaries live on a very tight budget and are always hungry. We're delighted to take them out and see to it they get a proper meal.) I also gave them my card and asked them to call me if they ever needed anything. With that, I had to thank them for dropping by but had to excuse myself as I had work to do. Before leaving, they asked if there was any jobs around the house that they could help us with. We didn't . . . but shall keep them in mind. (If Evelyn ever looks the other way for about three or four days, I shall enlist the Mormons to help me clean out the garage. Evelyn is a bit of a hoarder and won't throw anything away! Between the two Mormons and myself, we just might get the garage sufficiently cleaned out that we can actually park our cars in there!)

Reed which hangs in the History Museum. An archaeological survey of the Nate Harrison homestead began in 1999 when Petei McHenry, the History Museum curator and archaeologist, conducted an exploration of the site. In 2004, archaeology students from San Diego State University began what would become an annual dig. To date, thousands of artifacts have been uncovered. The old road leading to Harrison's cabin, east of the intersection of Valley Center and Pala (SR 76) roads in Pauma Valley, bears the name Nate Harrison Grade Road. A death certificate in the archive of the Valley Center Historical Society notes that the Black pioneer died in 1920 at age 97. The Valley Center History Museum at 29200 Cole Grade Road is open Tuesdays through Saturdays from 12noon to 4pm. Admission is free. For more information, call (760) 749-2993.
Nice young lads.
I would urge you to, next time you spot a couple Mormon missionaries, pick them up and take them out for lunch. Regardless of your religious persuasion, these are good kids and could use some help and companionship. They make a substantial (two-year) sacrifice as missionaries . . . all for something they believe in. In this day and age of greedy people, particularly politicians, who think of themselves first, and not others, I find that refreshing. We need more, not less, of that.
One man's opinion. •••• There are a lot of difficult decisions one has to make in the newspaper business. One I’m faced every week is why I can’t adopt some of the beautiful animals available on our Pet Page (Page 10.) This week, for example, there’s a great big ol’ lovable mutt of a dog that I’d love to adopt . . . but I already have two pups who call me daddy . . . and I don’t have room for another. If I had a huge acreage I’d probably own 10 or 12 pups/dogs. I fall in love with dogs the second those gorgeous eyes look at me and beg me to take them home. That is difficult, saying no, week after week after week. Such beautiful dogs who need homes.
I know! Why don’t YOU open your heart and home and adopt (or foster) a dog? Guaranteed to enrich your life and deliver a lot more laughter.
If you need additional motivation, go back to Page 4 and take note of the ad promoting the film “Dog by Dog,” and then buy a ticket and go see the film. You’ll be helping to save a lot of dogs and learn information you never knew before about dogs, puppy mills, and what you can do to rescue innocent puppies and dogs. ••••

Historically Speaking by Tom Morrow
Out of Goldwyn’s Mouth Sprang Gems
Samuel Goldwyn was born Aug. 17, 1879, a Jewish Polish-American film producer. He was most wellknown for being the founding contributor and executive of several motion picture studios in Hollywood. His awards include the 1973 Golden Globe Cecil B. DeMille Award, the Irving G. Thalberg Memorial Award in 1947, and the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award in 1958.
Goldwyn was born in Warsaw, Kingdom of Poland, Russian Empire, to a Hasidic, Polish Jewish family. At an early age, Goldwyn left Warsaw on foot and penniless. He made his way to Birmingham, United Kingdom.
In 1898, he emigrated to the United States and found work in upstate Gloversville, New York, in the bustling garment business. Soon his innate marketing skills made him a very successful salesman at the Elite Glove Company. After four years, as vice-president of sales, he moved back to New York City. Samuel Goldwyn was known for malapropisms, paradoxes, and other speech errors called Goldwynisms, a humorous statement being frequently quoted. For example, he was reported to have said, "I don't think anybody should write his autobiography until after he's dead." and another gem, "Include me out."
Upon being told that a book he had purchased for filming, The Well of Loneliness, couldn't be produced because it was about lesbians, to which he replied: "That's all right, we'll make them Hungarians." The same story was told about the 1934 rights to The Children's Hour with
the response "That's okay; we'll turn them into Armenians."
Another famous Goldwyn gem: "I’m willing to admit that I may not always be right, but I am never wrong." In 1946, the year he was honored by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences with the Irving G. Thalberg Memorial Award, Goldwyn's drama, The Best Years of Our Lives, starring Myrna Loy, Fredric March, Teresa Wright and Dana Andrews, won the Academy Award for Best Picture.
In the 1950s Samuel Goldwyn turned to making a number of musicals including the 1952 hit Hans Christian Andersen with Danny Kaye, and the 1955 hit Guys and Dolls starring Marlon Brando, Jean Simmons, Frank Sinatra, and Vivian Blaine, which was based on the equally successful Broadway musical. This was the only independent film that Goldwyn ever released through MGM. On March 27, 1971, Goldwyn was presented with the Presidential Medal of Freedom by President Richard Nixon.
Some of Goldwyn’s utterances that will live on: “I would be sticking my head in a moose.” “I read part of it all the way through.” “I’ll write you a blanket check.” “He treats me like the dirt under my feet.” “The publicity of this picture is sweeping the country like wildflowers.” “Our comedies are not to be laughed at.” “Let’s bring it up to date with some snapping nineteenth-century dialogue.” “I’ve been laid up with intentional flu.” “You’ve got to take the bull between the teeth.” Also: “I want make a picture about the Russian secret police – the GOP.” “I have a monumental idea this morning, but I didn’t like it.” “The trouble with these directors is they’re always biting the hand that lays the golden egg.” When told a picture under consideration was one with a message, Goldwyn reportedly replied: “If I want to send a message I’ll do it with a telegram!”
Goldwyn died at his home in Los Angeles in 1974. In the 1980s, Samuel Goldwyn Studio was sold to Warner Bros. There is a theater named after him in Beverly Hills and on Feb. 8, 1960 he received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at 1631 Vine Street for his contributions to motion pictures.

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 and 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 in there, boy" At the checkout, the little terror is throwing items out of the cart and Grandpa says again in a controlled voice, "William, William, relax buddy, don't get upset. 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. The little brat’s name is Kevin.” •••• After a night of drink, drugs and wild sex Bill woke up to find himself next to a really ugly woman. That's when he realized he had made it home safely. •••• Since the snow came all the wife has done is look through the window. If it gets any worse, I'll have to let her in. •••• I've been charged with murder for killing a man with sandpaper. To be honest I only intended to rough him
up a bit.
•••• After years of research, scientists have discovered what makes women happy. Nothing. •••• An elderly lady was invited to an old friend's home for dinner one evening. She was impressed by the way her lady friend preceded every request to her husband with endearing terms such as: Honey, My Love, Darling, Sweetheart, etc. The couple had been married almost 70 years and, clearly, they were still very much in love. While the husband was in the living room, her lady friend leaned over to her hostess to say, 'I think it's wonderful that, after all these years, you still call your husband all those loving names.'
The elderly lady hung her head, 'I have to tell you the truth,' she said, 'his name slipped my mind about 10 years ago, and I'm scared to death to ask the cranky old fart what his name is.'....
•••• The Genie
A Husband takes his wife to play her first game of golf. Of course, the wife promptly hacked her first shot right through the window of the biggest house adjacent to the course. The husband cringed, 'I warned you to be careful! Now we'll have to go up there, find the owner, apologize and see how much your lousy drive is going to cost us.' So the couple walked up to the house and knocked on the door. A warm voice said, 'Come on in.'
When they opened the door they saw the damage that was done: glass was all over the place, and a broken antique bottle was lying on its side near the pieces of window glass. A man reclining on the couch asked, 'Are you the people that broke my window?'
'Uh...yeah! , sir. We're sure sorry about that,' the husband replied.
'Oh, no apology is necessary. Actually I want to thank you.. You see, I'm a genie, and I've been trapped in that bottle for a thousand years. Now that you've released me, I'm allowed to grant three wishes. I'll give you each one wish, but if you don't mind, I'll keep the last one for my self.'
Wow, that's great!' the husband said. He pondered a moment and blurted out, 'I'd like a million dollars a year for the rest of my life.' 'No problem,' said the genie 'You've got it, it's the least I can do... And I'll guarantee you a long, healthy life!'

'And now you, young lady, what do you want?' the genie asked..
'I'd like to own a gorgeous home in every country in the world complete with servants,' she said.
'Consider it done,' the genie said 'and your homes will always be safe from fire, burglary and natural disasters!' 'And now,' the couple asked in unison, 'what's your wish, genie?' 'Well, since I've been trapped in that bottle, and haven't been with a woman in more than a thousand years, my wish is to have sex with your wife.'
The husband looked at his wife and said, 'Gee, honey, you know we both now have a fortune, and all those houses. What do you think?'

So the genie and the woman went upstairs where they spent the rest of the afternoon enjoying each other. The genie was insatiable.
After about three hours of non-stop sex, the genie rolled over and looked directly into her eyes and asked, ‘How old are you and your husband?'
'Why, we're both 35,' she responded breathlessly. 'No Kidding,' he said.

The lady defiantly replied, "Just a stupid can of peaches." The judge then asked why she had done it.
She replied, "I was hungry and forgot to bring any cash to the store." The judge asked how many peaches were in the can. She replied in a nasty tone, "Nine! But why do you care about that?"

Pastor Tom Fry (Retired) Church of the Nazarene Good Friends
Early in Jesus’ ministry, he healed a man who was paralyzed. The man picked up the mat he had spent most of his life on and walked home. A miracle in every sense of the word. Preachers look at that story and see a confrontation between Jesus and the Pharisees who see Jesus as an enemy to their good life.
Sunday School teachers, especially of young boys, like to tell about the guys who tore the roof off the house where Jesus was ministering so they could cut the line and get the paralyzed man to Jesus. Theologians look deeper into the person of Jesus as the Son of God,
For me, the heroes in the story in Mark 2 are the “friends.” A group of guys who brought their friend to Jesus. In pictures, there are usually four of them, each holding a corner of the mat, carrying their friend because they believe, or at least hope, that Jesus can help him.
In reality, there were probably more than four. It was a long journey, so they worked in shifts. And I’m pretty sure the guys who tore into the roof were also friends. It may not have taken a village, but it took more than four guys to get the job done. We need friends. To get us to places we can’t get ourselves. To find a way when it seems like there isn’t one. To believe for us when we’ve given up believing for ourselves.
That’s the real story in Mark 2. That we need friends and we need to be a friend. Sure, the man had to cooperate with the plan. He had to get up, he had to test his new found faith. But without friends, he might never have had the chance. We need friends. We need to be a friend.

San Marcos • Mayor Jim Desmond Engineering the Possibilities:
CSUSM Will L a u n c h Engineering Programs
An engineering feasibility study conducted on behalf of Cal State San Marcos in 2015 confirmed that it’s a much-needed program in the region.
While there are other engineering programs in Southern California, the study highlighted how CSUSM is in a prime position to draw from existing curricula and faculty expertise while appealing to the hiring needs and goals of local industry.
According to CSUSM associate professor Gerardo Dominguez, the new program will increase the professional and education opportunities for the residents of North County and the broader area served by CSUSM. The university received a $6 million grant in September that is providing foundational funding for the engineering program, which will start with software and electrical engineering. Preparation of the program is approaching completion, and documentation is moving forward this spring as part of the institutional approval process.

and put on antibiotics. She never regained consciousness as her organs failed one by one through the week. She died minutes before Nome and our oldest daughter arrived at the hospital to say goodbye. An accident at our computer store and the sudden death of a friend. Watching a young family react lovingly to an accident that seemed to be a big deal at the time and then feeling the loss of a friend all in one afternoon jarred things into perspective for us. How often do we fret and worry over material things that really don’t matter when compared to the really important things like the relationships we have with the people we love and who make our lives worth living.

Laura Strickler Reverse Mortgage Expert
HOME BUYING IN REVERSE
Did you know that you can purchase a home with a reverse mortgage loan? As you enter retirement and your circumstances change, you may begin to realize that you prefer to age in a new home. Maybe your children have left the nest or the house you have now no longer fits your needs – you would rather be closer to family, in a warmer climate, or in a home better suited to senior living. Or perhaps your house is simply too large. Multiple levels and huge yards may require more work and expense than you are willing or able to maintain. Whatever your reason, there is a loan option available to seniors, age 62 or older, for aging in a new home instead of your current one. It’s the
HECM for Purchase Loan which is specifically designed to allow seniors to purchase a new principal residence and simultaneously obtain a reverse mortgage within a single transaction. By consolidating the two financial transactions into one - purchasing a home and financing it with a reverse mortgage loan – you can also save money, because you incur only a single set of closing costs.
How does it work? With the HECM for Purchase Loan, you provide a down payment using the sale of your home or other savings. The equity built through the down payment and the new primary home’s value is then used to calculate your reverse mortgage loan amount. It’s important to keep in mind that during this processyou may need to meet the loan-to-value ratio requirements with a significant down payment and provide verification of personal income and funds. All of the reverse mortgage funds then cover the remaining cost of the home, just like with a traditional mortgage. One key advantage to financing with a reverse mortgage is that instead of paying the loan back every month over time like a traditional mortgage, reverse mortgage repayment is deferred to when the loan matures. This way, you can finance the purchase of a new home without the burden of monthly mortgage payments, although you must continue paying for taxes, insurance and home maintenance. Single family homes and existing
properties with four units or less are typically eligible for a HECM for Purchase Loan, but otherproperty types are not, such as cooperative units, boarding houses, bed and breakfast establishments, and some manufactured homes.
To protect borrowers, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has put in place these important safeguards: • Independent counseling is required by HUD. • Because HECMs are a nonrecourse loans, borrowers will never owe more than the home is worth at the time the loan becomes due. • HUD requires a thorough evaluation of borrowers’ finances to ensure that they are able to comply
with the loan terms for the life of the loan. The borrower will maintain ownership of the home as long as they pay for taxes, insurance and home maintenance and otherwise comply with the loan terms. • Loans are available to borrowers with a non-borrowing spouse under the age of 62. Surviving eligible non-borrowing spouses can stay in the home without foreclosure as long as they comply with the loan terms.
