It was a sunny afternoon on that 9th day of November, 1975.

The captain and crew of the Edmund Fitzgerald knew full well that November is referred to as “The Month of Storms” on the Great Lakes but, at the time, under the warming sun, they didn’t seem to be too concerned.

Little did the 29 man crew know that they would soon face one of the biggest and worst storms that their Captain had ever seen. Nor would they know that they would soon perish beneath the cold, angry waters of Lake Superior and become part of a legend.

The legend of the Edmund Fitzgerald remains the most mysterious and controversial of all shipwreck tales heard around the Great Lakes. Her story is surpassed in books, film and media only by that of the The Paper - 760.747.7119


April 16, 2015

Winds are at 52 knots, with waves ten feet in height.

Titanic. Canadian folksinger Gordon Lightfoot inspired popular interest in this vessel with his 1976 ballad, "The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald." The 729 foot Edmund Fitzgerald left Superior, Wisconsin, heavy with 26,918 long tons of iron ore (taconite) pellets. She was bound for the steel mills of Zug Island, just off Detroit. Shortly after leaving, she made radio contact with the Arthur M. Anderson, a sister ship, soon to leave the same port, and bound for the steel mills of Gary, Indiana.

Eyewitnesses recall that it was an unseasonably beautiful day, and recall seeing the Fitz pass with off duty staff sunning themselves on the Fitz's always pristine decks. They were the last from shore to see the ship afloat. On November 9 at 7 pm the National Weather Service

Gordon Lightfoot, singer/songwriter, whose song “Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald” has become a classic.

(NWS) issued a gale warning for Lake Superior. In a gale, the wind speeds range from 34-40 knots. At about 2:00 am November 10 the NWS upgraded the gale warning to a storm warning (winds 48-55 knots) with a prediction of "northeast winds 35 to 50 knots becoming northwesterly 28 to 38 knots on Monday, waves 8 to 15 feet." November 10 - 1:00 AM Weather report from the Fitzgerald. The report from the Fitzgerald shows her to be 20 miles south of Isle Royale.

Her Last Voyage Continued on Page 2

7:00 AM - Weather report from the Fitzgerald. Winds are at 35 knots, waves of ten feet. This is the last weather report that the Edmund Fitzgerald will ever make. 3:15 PM - Captain Jesse Cooper, (J.C.) of the S.S. Arthur M. Anderson watches the Fitzgerald round Caribou Island and comments that the Fitzgerald is much closer to Six Fathom Shoal than he would want to be. 3:20 PM - Anderson reports winds coming from the Northwest at 43 knots.

3:30 PM - Radio transmission between the Fitzgerald and the Anderson. Captain McSorley (C.M.) to Captain Cooper (C.C.):

C.M.: "Anderson, this is the Fitzgerald. I have sustained some topside damage. I have a

fence rail laid down, two vents lost or damaged, and a list. I'm checking down. Will you stay by me til I get to Whitefish?" C.C.: "Charlie on that Fitzgerald. Do you have your pumps going?" C.M.: "Yes, both of them

Also around this time, the storm's fury had closed the Sault Ste. Marie locks. What had happened was the wind had carried the Fitz's radar away and she was flying blind. Popular consensus was that she had drifted dangerously close to Six Fathom Shoals off the coast of Michipicoten Island, Lake Superior, and opened a welded seam in the hull. The Fitzgerald was equipped with two 7,000 gallon per minute pumps, and four 2,000 gallon per minute pumps. McSorley (the captain of the Fitzgerald) was asked if he had his pumps running. He replied that he had them all going. And yet the ominous list was still present. Not good in a raging hurricane. 4:10 PM - The Fitzgerald radios the Arthur M. Anderson requesting radar assistance for the remainder of the voyage. Fitzgerald: "Anderson, this is the Fitzgerald. I have lost both radars. Can you provide me

Give Us This Day Our Daily Chuckle This week, a compendium of wit, wisdom and neat stuff you can tell at parties. Enjoy! The Irish Fisherman

It was raining hard and a big puddle had formed in front of an Irish pub. An old man stood beside the puddle holding a stick with a string on the end and jiggled it up and down in the water.A curious gentleman asked what he was doing. 'Fishing,' replied the old man.

'Poor old fool' thought the gentleman, so he invited the old man to have a drink in the pub. Feeling he should start some conversation while they were sipping their whiskey, the gentleman asked, “and how many have you caught?' 'You're the eighth.” ••••• I changed my car horn to the

with radar plots till we reach Whitefish Bay?" Anderson: "Charlie on that, Fitzgerald. We'll keep you advised of position."

About 4:39 PM - The Fitzgerald cannot pick up the Whitefish Point radio beacon. The Fitzgerald radios the Coast Guard station at Grand Marais on Channel 16, the emergency channel.

Between 4:30 and 5:00 PM - The Edmund Fitzgerald calls for any vessel in the Whitefish Point area regarding information about the beacon and light at Whitefish Point. 63 year old Ernest McSorley of Toledo, Ohio, the captain of the Fitzgerald, made radio contact with another ship, the Avafors, a Swedish ship anchored in the relatively calm safety of Whitefish Bay. They reported that they "had a bad list, had lost both radars, and was taking heavy seas over the deck in one of the worst seas he had ever been in." Captain McSorley was a seasoned sailor of the Great Lakes with 44 years of experience. They receive an answer by the saltwater vessel Avafors that the beacon and the light are not operating.

Estimated between 5:30 and 6:00 PM - Radio transmission between the Avafors and the Fitzgerald:

If they are holding a gun, she's probably angry. ••••• Gone are the days when girls used to cook like their mothers.

Avafors: "Fitzgerald, this is the Avafors. I have the Whitefish light now but still am receiving no beacon. Over." Fitzgerald: "I'm very glad to hear it."

Avafors: "The wind is really howling down here. What are the conditions where you are?" Fitzgerald: (Undiscernable shouts heard by the Avafors.) "DON'T LET NOBODY ON DECK!" Avafors: "What's that, Fitzgerald? Unclear. Over."

Fitzgerald: "I have a bad list, lost both radars. And am taking heavy seas over the deck. One of the worst seas I've ever been in."

Avafors: "If I'm correct, you have two radars." Fitzgerald: "They're both gone."

Sometime around 7:00 PM - The Anderson is struck by two huge waves that put water on the ship, 35 feet above the water line. The waves hit with enough force to push the starboard lifeboat down, damaging the bottom. 7:10 PM - Radio transmission between the Anderson and the Fitzgerald.

The Fitzgerald is still being followed by the Arthur M. Anderson. They are about 10 miles behind the Fitzgerald.

Anderson: "Fitzgerald, this is the Anderson. Have you checked down?" (Means ‘reduced speed’). Fitzgerald: "Yes we have."

Anderson: "Fitzgerald, we are about 10 miles behind you, and gaining about 1 1/2 miles per hour. Fitzgerald, there is a target 19 miles ahead of us. So the target would be 9 miles on ahead of you." Fitzgerald: "Well, am I going to clear?" Anderson: "Yes. He is going to pass to the west of you." Fitzgerald: "Well, fine."

Anderson: "By the way, Fitzgerald, how are you making out with your problem?"

Fitzgerald: "We are holding our own." Anderson: "Okay, fine. talking to you later."

They never did speak later. The 29 men onboard the Fitzgerald will never again speak with anyone outside of the ship. Morgan Clark, first mate of the Anderson, kept watching the Fitzgerald on the radar set to calculate her distance from some other vessels near Whitefish Point. He kept losing sight of the Fitzgerald on the

radar from sea return, meaning that seas were so high they interfered with the radar reflection. The radar signal, or "pip" of the Fitzgerald kept getting obscured by sea return. And around 7:15 pm the pip was lost again, but this time did not reappear. Clark called the Fitzgerald again at about 7:22 pm. There was no answer.

According to Captain Cooper, about 6:55 pm, he and the men in the Anderson's pilothouse felt a "bump," felt the ship lurch, and then turned to see a monstrous wave engulfing their entire vessel from astern. The wave worked its way along the deck, crashing on the back of the pilothouse, driving the bow of the Anderson down into the sea. "Then the Anderson just raised up and shook herself off of all that water - barrooff - just like a big dog. Another wave just like the first one or bigger hit us again. I watched those two waves head down the lake towards the Fitzgerald, and I think those were the two that sent him under." 7:15 PM - The Fitzgerald enters a squall while still on Lake Superior; the squall obscures the vessel from radar observation by the Anderson; this is normal when in a squall.

Sometime between 7:20 and 7:30 PM - It is estimated that this was the time period when the ship vanished and sank. 7:25 PM - Edmund Fitzgerald disappears from the radar of the S.S. Arthur M. Anderson, prompting a call to the Coast Guard to inform them of the situation.

7:55 PM - The Anderson calls again and informs the Coast Guard that they have lost the Fitzgerald both visually and on radar. 9:00 PM - The Coast Guard, with no available search ships, radios the Arthur M. Anderson requesting assistance.

C.G.: "Anderson, this is Group Soo. What is your present position?"

Anderson: "We're down here, about two miles off Parisienne Island right now ... the wind is northwest forty to forty-five miles here in the bay."

C.G.: "Is it calming down at all, do you think?"

Anderson: "In the bay it is, but I heard a couple of the salties talking up there, and they wish they hadn't gone out."

After much more conversation and a request by the Coast Guard to return to search for the ship, reluctant to go out, the S.S. Arthur M. Anderson agrees to

"give it a try" but claims that that is "all we can do."

The sinking of the Fitzgerald was very rapid and it is likely they did not know the seriousness of their condition. Indeed, after the wreck two severely damaged life boats were found. The conditions of these lifeboats suggests that no attempts were made to leave the ship. No distress signals were ever issued. Not a single body was found, nor recovered. November 11, 1975, morning

A Reverend by the name of Richard Ingalls prays in his church and holds a memorial service for the twenty nine men lost. This service becomes an annual service and is mentioned in the song, "The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald" by Gordon Lightfoot. 1976 - The song, "The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald" is released by Gordon Lightfoot to the public commemorating the shipwreck. This song is still performed to this day at his concerts. May - The wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald is OFFICIALLY identified.

1995 The bell of the S.S. Edmund Fitzgerald is raised, restored, and replaced on the ship by a new bell with the names of the twenty nine men lost. This is the last time the S.S. Edmund Fitzgerald will ever again be legally dived upon. The Fitzgerald now rests, broken in 3 pieces in 529 feet of water, some 15 miles outside Whitefish Bay, in Canadian waters. She has been documented and photographed. Human remains have been located and left to rest at the families’ request, and it has been put forth that the site remain private, and off limits.

"At the request of family members surviving her crew, Fitzgerald's 200 lb. bronze bell was recovered by the Great Lakes Shipwreck Historical Society on July 4, 1995. This expedition was conducted jointly with the National Geographic Society, Canadian Navy, Sony Corporation, and Sault Ste. Marie Tribe of Chippewa Indians. The bell is now on display in the Great Lakes Shipwreck Museum as a memorial to her lost crew." Great Lakes Shipwreck Museum website: http://www.shipwreckmuseum.c om/fitz.phtml

Gordon Lightfoot read the story in McLeans Magazine (A Canadian publication) while on a flight, and wrote his classic song in a short time. Lyrics for: Wreck Edmund Fitzgerald



The legend lives on, from the Chippewa on down Of the big lake they call Gitchee

Gumee. The lake, it is said, never gives up her dead When the skies of November turn gloomy.

With a load of iron ore, 26,000 tons more Than the Edmund Fitzgerald weighed empty, That good ship and crew was a bone to be chewed, When the gales of November came early. The ship was the pride of the American side Comin' back from some mill in Wisconsin. As the big freighters go, it was bigger than most With a crew and good captain well seasoned.

Concluding some terms with a couple of steel firms, When they left fully loaded for Cleveland, And late that night when the ship's bell rang Could it be the north wind they'd been feelin'? The wind in the wires made a tattletale sound, And a wave broke over the railing, And every man knew as the captain did too, 'twas the Witch of November come stealin'.

The dawn came late and the breakfast had to wait, When the gales of November came slashin'. When afternoon came it was freezin' rain, In the face of a hurricane west wind. When suppertime came, the old cook came on deck Sayin' "Fellas, it's too rough to feed ya". At seven p.m., the main hatchway caved in, he said "Fellas, it's been good to know ya".

The captain wired in he had water comin' in And the good ship and crew was in peril, And later that night when its lights went out of sight Came the wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald.

Does anyone know where the love of God goes, When the waves turn the minutes to hours? The searchers all say they'd have made Whitefish Bay If they'd put fifteen more miles behind 'em. They might have split up or they might have capsized, They may have broke deep and took water. And all that remains is the faces and the names Of the wives and the sons and the daughters. Lake Huron rolls, Superior sings In the rooms of her ice water mansions. Old Michigan steams like a

Man About Town

I’m fuming mad!

I caught the news item about a Chinese Restaurant in Tijuana that was caught butchering dogs and cooking their meat. Lo Yen City was shut down by authorities, to the great credit of those authorities. Quick and responsible response by Tijuana authorities is not something we are used to seeing. Perhaps a change for the better?

Three Chinese nationals and two Mexicans remained in custody as of last week. Charges of animal cruelty are pending. And how did this come to be discovered? Because police responded to a report of a dog’s plaintive cries from the restaurant propery. Authorities

pet stores in Oceanside, but has been ordered to close by September; Chula Vista has already issued a ban, as has the city of San Diego; there is a store in National City and in Corona/Norco. He has a total of four stores, National City, Oceanside, Corona/Norco, and now, San Marcos.

Municipal inspectors have shut down five other Chinese restaurants for being in violation of city health standards, or for problems with their paperwork. In one restaurant, they reported finding caged dogs on the premises, as well as blood and dog hairs in the vicinity, but no dog corpses. The city’s restaurant chamber estimates there are some 500 Chinese restaurants in Tijuana.

Understandably, business at Chinese restaurants in Tijuana has dropped way down. I know I wouldn’t care to dine on “Chinese food” in Tijuana. Wang Jian, head of the Chinese Consulate in Tijuana, said that one owner reported that his daily sales had dropped by 90 percent. Personally, I’m hoping Tijuana authorities lock up these criminals and throw away the key.

Absolutely disgusting! ••••• There’s a gal in San Marcos who has undertaken an ambitious project. Pam Humes has come up with the idea that shopping centers

The Cover Stories

Lyle; Your cover stories and editorials all seem to be well researched and well written. The latest, of 9 April 2015 touched a nerve. It seems to me that you are doing what some others and, even I did when I was a lot younger (probably about your age now), self flagellation. You've gone back over a century to dredge up some of this country's sins against the Indians. I'm sure you are a patriot and did it with good intent, only to show this country's guilt and to indirectly soften some of the hatred toward innocent Muslims. The Americans of the time you wrote of were people or descendants of people who had come over from

Europe where the way of life was that the strongest ruled. They found a people here who weren't totally innocent but lived by that same rule among themselves and even kept slaves (ie: Cabeza de Vaca). So, having a little better technology the Europeans prevailed. Since that time laws in this country were made to try to prevent the brutality that was prevalent in times past. Problem is some people still haven't gotten the word.

My folks came to this country about a hundred years ago. When I was a kid in the 1920s my parents and family occasionally spoke of their escape from the Turks, often with humor, but more of the present and future here. In spite of the tough times back then, my mother said on many occasions, later, "There were some good Turks."

We all worship the same Creator whether we call him God, Jehovah, or Allah. He's all the same. Why fight about it? I come from a Christian family and have a friend who is an immigrant from Turkey and, I presume, a Muslim and, I also have some Jewish friends.

AB 32: Deterring Computer Crimes

High-profile computer crimes are increasing nationwide, as shown by recent hacking attacks on Target, Home Depot and other large retailers. Even the White House website has been hacked. Many celebrities have also been targeted, often with very public and embarrassing results.

As with most crimes, a statute of limitations governs whether or not perpetrators of these crimes can be tried. Currently, the statute of limitations for felony computer crimes is three years, and one year for most misdemeanors. Absent provable fraud or deceit, the clock begins ticking when the crime is committed, not when it is discovered. In many cases, discovery of these crimes may be months, or even years later. It is important that we take steps to prevent these crimes before they happen. That’s

one for you and your dog. Sign up online at or call 760.745.2758.

why I introduced Assembly Bill 32 (AB 32), which provides that the statute of limitations for a computer crime involving acquiring, copying or distributing one or more intimate digital images begins when the crime is discovered, not when it is committed. In an effort at further deterrence, AB 32 will also increase misdemeanor fines for these types of computer crimes from $5,000 to $10,000.

The bill is supported by California College and University Police Chiefs, Los Angeles Police Protective League, Riverside Sheriffs Association, Association of Deputy District Attorneys, among others. I am happy to report that AB 32 passed the Assembly with unanimous support on April 9. The bill will now be forwarded to the Senate, where I am hoping for a similar result later this session.

Historically Speaking by Tom Morrow

President’s wife, but ironically, it wasn’t only for her husband, but for the widowed President Thomas Jefferson before the Madisons moved in.

Born Dolley Payne on May 20, 1768, in New Garden, North Carolina, it was after the War of 1812, she re-furnished the reconstructed White House. The executive mansion was first occupied by President John and Abigail Adams, but the interior was unfinished and unfurnished until Jefferson moved in. Work continued on the White House through the Jefferson administration. The First Hostess of the United States

When we think of grand First Ladies of the White House, Jackie Kennedy is probably the first image that comes to mind. Nancy Reagan leads a short list of other First Ladies, but when the White House was finally completed in the very early 19th century, it was President James Madison’s wife, Dolley, who set the standard most chief executives’ wives have followed since. Dolley and James Madison occupied the White House from 1809 to 1817. She was noted for her social gifts, which boosted her husband’s popularity. She did much to define the role of the

Dolley Payne Todd and James Madison, a congressman from Virginia, probably met at social events in Philadelphia. Reportedly,Aaron Burr, a longtime friend of Madison's since their student days at Princeton University, stayed at a rooming house where Dolley, a widow, lived. In May 1794, Burr made the formal introduction between the young widow and Madison, who was 17 years her senior. After a brief courtship, they were married on Sept. 15, 1794. It was during the War of 1812, Dolley became a heroine. In 1814, as the enemy approached the city, Dolley is credited with saving the classic portrait of

Escondido, CA—In a 2002 issue of Neurosurgical Focus, a peerreviewed article was published by a Dr. Michael D. Martin, MD et al. in which the third sentence states: “The disc itself is active tissue that contains significant mechanisms for self-repair.” That article was published by a neurosurgeon and written directly for neurosurgeons.

“The Disc Itself Is Active Tissue...”

So what does that really mean to us? It tells us that the disc itself does have a God-given ability to heal and repair if provided the proper mechanisms for self-healing. There is a specific mechanism inherent in each of the spinal discs called the “pump mechanism of disc nutri-tion” (see Fig 1). When this mechanism is not working properly, the spinal discs will begin to die causing bulges, herniations, and eventually spinal stenosis.

The spinal disc is one of the very few tissues in the body that does not have a direct blood supply for circulation. The only way that the disc gets the circulation of water, oxygen and nutrients for self-repair is via this specific disc pump mechanism. What happens when you decrease cir-culation in any type of tissue, whether it be animal tissue, plant tissue or human tissue? Exactly, it begins to become weak and begins to degenerate.

Symptoms Are NOT The Problem

brown leaves are the plant’s problem? Of course not, the leaves turning brown is just a condition that is telling you that there is something wrong with the plant. The plant is unhealthy and needs water and nutrients. You could spray paint the leaves green but it just covers up the condition. The underlying problem still exists and will continue to produce brown leaves until you fix the actual problem. and tingling that most experience with bulging, herniated or degenerative discs are NOT the problem. The definition of a symptom: “something that indicates the existence of something else.” It is just like the dashboard of your car telling you that something is wrong (brake lights out, engine needs checked, overheating, etc.) Those lights that appear in your car dash are NOT the problem. You can remove the lights surgically or put a piece of duct tape over the lights but the problem will NOT be fixed...the problem is still present.

Let’s take a look at a plant for example...if the leaves on a plant begin to turn brown, would you say that the

extent of your disc damage for only $70. This examination will consist of a detailed neurological evaluation, extensive orthopedic testing, and a detailed analysis of the findings of your evaluation. He will sit down with you and go over your condition with you in complete detail. You will know exactly what is causing all your pain (or other symptoms).

In your spine, when the pump mechanism of disc nutrition fails, the disc will begin to de-generate and become weak. This weakness in the disc is what produces the bulging, herniated, and degenerative discs.

The treatment that is provided at Dr. Heilman’s Spine and Neuropathy Care Center in Escondido is revolutionary and is specifically designed to artificially re-create the pump mechanism in the discs which allows the spinal discs to heal and repair. The best part of the treatment is that it uses no drugs, no injections, and no surgery. Plus it’s painless and many patients relax and fall asleep while undergoing the treatment. The amount of treatment needed to allow the discs to heal and repair varies from person to person and can only be determined after a detailed neurological and orthopedic evaluation. We do NOT accept everyone for treatment and will let you know if we can accept your case for treatment. Dr. Stephen Heilman, DC at the Spine and Neuropathy Care Center in Escondido, CA will do a spinal disc severity examination to determine the

George Washington, along with a number of other national household treasures. However, in recent years that claim has been challenged. Popular accounts during and after the war years tended to portray Dolley Madison as the one who removed the painting. Early 20th century historians note that Jean Pierre Sioussat, a Frenchman, had directed the servants to remove the painting. In 1815, after the war, Congress allowed “Madame Dolley Madison a refurbishing allowance of $14,000 to purchase new furniture for the Executive Mansion.”

While James Madison is the leading architect of the U.S. Constitution, like Jefferson, their legacies are tainted because they were slave holders. After James’ death on June 28 1836, Dolley remained at their Montpelier plantation for a year. During that time, she organized and copied her husband's papers. Congress authorized $55,000 as payment for seven volumes, including his notes on the Constitutional Convention. In the fall of 1837, Dolley Madison returned to Washington. She moved into a house, on Lafayette Square. Dolley took her slave butler Paul Jennings with her, forcing him to leave his family in Virginia.

While living in Washington, Dolley tried to raise money by selling the rest of Madison’s papers. She also agreed to sell Jennings to Daniel Webster, who allowed Jennings to gain his freedom by paying Webster through work. Unable to find a buyer for the remaining Madison papers, she sold Montpelier, the remaining slaves, and the furnishings to pay off outstanding debts.

In the last days of her life, Dolley was in absolute poverty. Webster often sent Jennings to visit Dolley with food and telling the slave whenever he saw anything she needed to take it to her. In some cases, Jennings would give her money out of his own pocket. In 1848, Congress agreed to buy the rest of James Madison's papers for around $25,000.

On July 12, 1849, Dolley Madison died at age 81, in her Washington D.C., home. She was first buried in the Congressional Cemetery, Washington, but later moved to a grave at Montpelier plantation next to her husband.

In a musty old hall in Detroit they prayed in the Maritime Sailors' Cathedral The church bell chimed 'til it rang 29 times, For each man on the Edmund Fitzgerald.

The legend lives on from the Chippewa on down Of the big lake they called Gitche Gumee Superior, they said, never gives up her dead, When the gales of November come early. Thirty years after the Edmund Fitzgerald sank in Lake Superior, the song is still a classic. It tells the story of what happened on that stormy November 10.

Some factual inaccuracies in the song: First, although the Fitz was indeed leaving with iron ore pellets from Superior, Wisconsin, it was headed to Detroit, not Cleveland; Second, the song suggests that the crew knew they were about to sink and perish - in fact, the storm and waves that finally sank the Fitz (it had been taking on water for some time - were likely sudden and swift, and the crew were likely in the water before they knew they were in grave danger. Every November 10th, a somber ceremony takes place commemorating this tragic event.

The bell-ringing ceremony is especially moving . . . a crew members name is read then a member (or members) of his family ring the bell. The 30th toll of the bell was in honor of all the other lives lost on the Great Lakes. A replica of the bell with the names of the crew inscribed on it was taken down to the wreck to replace the original.

While they used to ring the bell of the Old Mariner's Church for the men lost, some years after the sinking the ship was found, and the bell they ring anually now is the ship's bell salvaged from the Fitz herself.

Conflicting theories about the cause of the tragedy remain active today. GLSHS' (Great Lakes Shipwreck Historical Society) three expeditions to the wreck revealed that it is likely she "submarined" bow first into an enormous sea, as damage forward is indicative of a powerful, quick force to the superstruc-

ture. But what caused the ship to take on water, enough to lose buoyancy and dive to the bottom so quickly, without a single cry for help, cannot be determined. The bell of the ship is now on display in the Great Lakes Shipwreck Museum as a memorial to her lost crew.

The Pastor Says . . .

Pastor Tom Fry, Retired, Church of the Nazarene Chocolate Bunnies: Half Off

That’s the sign that caught my eye in the drug store last week. The first visual was a little disturbing, but then I realized the store was discounting all of its Easter baskets, candy and decorations. The sign probably says “75% off” this week. Then I noticed the diagrams on each shelf indicating the arrangement of the next set of “Seasonal Items” to be displayed. In a few days, Easter will be discarded in favor of summer items like barbecues, picnic supplies and swimming toys for the children.

‘Social Butterfly’ Cont. on Page 11

By the time you read this, Easter will be gone from the stores and, for some, forgotten for another year. But that is not the spirit of Easter, nor is it the sense of the Christian calendar. Just a couple of Sundays ago, we were singing, “He lives, He lives, Christ Jesus lives today.” It is the theme song of Easter Sunday, of the Resurrection, that Christ is alive. The Bible tells us that in the days following Easter, Jesus visited with many people in small groups like his disciples and, according to Paul, in a crowd of 500. He spoke personally with the doubtful disciple, Thomas, and he sat at the table with a couple from Emmaus. Then, at the appointed time, with his disciples watching, He ascended into heaven and resumed His place at the right hand of the Father. We should still sing “He lives, He lives, Christ Jesus lives today,” because that is the true meaning of Easter, not just a Sunday on the calendar. It is the everyday lifeblood of Christians throughout the world.

Congratulations to Leadership Class

Participants from the Spring Vista Leadership Academy were recognized this past Tuesday at the Vista City Council. The City of Vista is proud of its 13th 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 bet-


The Leadership Class spent seven weeks (once a week session) becoming better informed about the City's many responsibilities and functions. They learned how departments operated and toured city facilities and development projects, discussed important issues facing the city, such as planning, traffic, growth, and city finances and made lasting friendships with their peers. Congratulations to the spring 2015 participants. If you are interested in the fall, 2015 session, please call 760.643.5216 or e-mail

Patrick "Skip" Jacovino Integrity Mortgage Group Senior Mortgage Consultant

Our last column wrapped up a 4 part series introducing our readers to Reverse Mortgages. This week I want to talk about conventional mortgages. These are what most folks would call a “standard” or “regular” mortgage. These mortgages typically are the 30 year fixed rate mortgages that people hear about … although there are different loan terms available besides a 30 year fixed rate mortgage. 15 year mortgages and even 10 year mortgages are available too. And yes, there are still

Here are some tips on how to care for your PC and avoid hardware problems. When you’re finished using your PC and aren’t going to be using it again for several hours, turn it off. We don’t care what your Uncle Charlie told you, just turn it off. When running, PCs collect dust, emit heat, burn electricity and wear moving parts. When your PC boots up, it cleans out the cache and RAM and refreshes its drivers. It will run better, cooler and faster after a rest. Turn your PC off the right way by using the “start” button on the screen or by tapping the power button on the computer. Only as a last resort should you pull the plug or hold down the power button to shut off your PC. Use canned air or a vacuum cleaner to clear the dust from the air vents and fans every few months. Try not to bump your tower while the hard drive is spinning and when using a notebook, make absolutely sure it has fully shut down before you move it or slam the lid. It’s also a good idea to avoid using your notebook during “happy hour.” Merlot will

adjustable rate mortgages available (commonly called ARMS), although they are not nearly as popular now as they were before the housing bubble bursting around 2007.

Most conventional mortgages are used to purchase a home … and then people tend to want to replace that loan with a new one whenever rates drop. This is known as refinancing. Most people refinance their existing mortgage to get a lower rate and a lower payment … or sometimes to shorten their term from a 30 year loan to a 15 year loan in order to pay less interest over time. However, there is an additional use for a refinance that was very popular a few years ago and has started to become popular again. I am talking about using a mortgage refinance to consolidate debt.

When I say “debt,” I mean things such as credit card balances, student loans, home equity lines of credit, and personal loans. Most of these types of debt carry higher interest rates than mortgage loans and some can carry large payments as well. When people start to accumulate several of these “debt” accounts, keeping up with the payments can become difficult. Many homeowners I have worked with in the past have complained that the payments were eating up their monthly budget. When a client comes to me with that situation, we typically will take a look at all the debts that they have and determine if there is a possibility of refinancing their mortgage to “pay off” those debts by consolidating the debts under one tax-deductable mortgage loan account (ask your tax adviser about deductibility of

leave a mark.

While Internet “malware” is the source of most software problems, there are some steps you can take to avoid off-line software problems. When installing and uninstalling applications, always use the utilities that Windows provides for that purpose. If the software maker offers a removal tool, use it and unless you really know what you are doing, don’t mess with the registry or bios set-up. Avoid using commercial PC tune-up and clean-up programs or services. They invariably do more harm than good. The only one we trust is CCLEANER by Piriform.

mortgage interest). If the client qualifies for the debt-consolidation mortgage refinance, it usually lowers their monthly expenditures significantly … in some cases over $1000 per month. It all depends on how much debt the client has and what the payments are for the debts being paid off. Here is an example of a debt consolidation I did recently: The client had a 223K existing mortgage at 4.5% with a payment of $1525 and a Home Equity Line of Credit of 83K with a monthly payment of $315 per month…In addition, they had about 46K in credit card and student loan debt with payments totaling $712 per month…So they were paying a total of $2552 per month on all these debts. We were able to get them a new 30 year fixed rate mortgage

loan at 3.75% with a total payment of $1969. This saved them about $583 every month. I advised them that the money they save every month can be put into savings so that they will be less likely to use credit cards for living expenses in the future. Debt consolidations can be done with conventional mortgages or reverse mortgages depending on the client’s needs. If you know a homeowner that could benefit from consolidating their bills, don’t hesitate to have them contact me for a complimentary, no-obligation debt analysis. Next column, we will go over the definitions of some commonly used mortgage terms that are useful to know. Have a great week!

built to carry filtered water from the coastal plant east through Carlsbad and part of Vista into San Marcos. Then, the treated water will flow into the San Diego County Water Authority system, be blended with other waters, and then distributed throughout the county. The better part of the pipeline has been completed. The entire project is likely to be completed by June according to officials.

Most of the overall pipeline is buried in a trench, but there are places along the route where the line was bored beneath busy streets to avoid traffic problems during construction. Six powerful pumps at the Carlsbad plant will push the water through the pipeline and up a 680-foot elevation gain to San Marcos.

Hi kids, this is Batman, the old Caped Crusader.

Y'know, the '60s was a glorious era. I could still fit into my suit, Robin and I could hang out together without those rumors spreading, and even though the Batmobile got two miles a gallon, gas was still cheap enough that I could still afford Alfred.

I have retired from crime-fighting. Oh, I'll take an occasional gig . . but, generally, I'm a retired gentleman. I now serve as a mild-mannered reporter for a terrific weekly newspaper in North

San Diego County. The Paper, a wildly successful weekly newspaper features dynamite cover stories as well as hilarious jokes on its Chuckles page, great columns by experts in their field . . . and a round-up of daily news. Cost is a measly $30 for a six month subscription, or $60 for a full Bat-year subscription. Just call and ask for me, Batman, on my Batphone at 760.747.7119. Trust me. Those on your gift list will go batty for it.

Batman out.

Hi Neighbor,

In 46 years in the law business I can say I have seen it all-Divorces, Adoptions, Business, Auto Accidents, Dog Bites, Defective Home Construction, Workers’ Compensation, Libel-Slander, etc. Small cases and huge-tragic quadriplegic injury cases (gun shot wounds). I have been a Judge in the Superior Court, Municipal Court, Workers’ Compensation, Arbitrator, Mediator, etc. I have taken care of thousands and thousands of satisfied clients.
