So, at long last, I’m first at something. I was the very first passenger to fly the Travel Air biplane “Olive,” owned and operated by the all-new Fun Flights which flies out of Palomar Airport. (Yes, I’m fully aware that it, technically, is McClelland Palomar Airport but I, being an old-timer, will always call it Palomar Airport, just like God intended it to be called.) Fun Flights had only just opened and we were their very first passenger in this 85 year old classic aircraft. (1929.)
Brian Shepherd and his beautiful wife, Janene, arranged for me to head up into the ‘wild blue yonder.’ So Friday I became a little boy. Again.
Remember when you saw an airplane for the first time? Remember how you wondered what it must feel like to fly one of those flying machines? Remember the old bi-planes from yesteryear? Two wings, a fuselage, and an engine. When pilots would barnstorm all over the nation? Well, Friday I relived those 'good old days' of aviation,
I'm a licensed private pilot (though not current) but have not piloted an aircraft in 15-20 years. Friday, I got to take the controls again. It felt good. I was back home.
The Travel Air, however, is a plane that requires you to fly it. It doesn't do it for you like some of the modern day aircraft. That's what pilots like about it and all its cousins. You actually FLY! By the seat of your pants sometimes. I found that the plane was a lot heavier to respond to my turning of the joystick and rudder pedals. With a Cessna 150 or 172 you barely nudge the wheel and rudder to the left and the plane responds easily. With one of these marvelous old birds you have to hold the joystick to the left and hit the rudder pedal a little more firmly. It actually is a bit like work The Paper - 760.747.7119

For the pilot in command, Brian Shepherd, it was old stuff. He did the take-off and landing. Once airborne, he gave me the
airplane to fly.
Observations: Even though it's a bit of work to fly these old birds . . . they are still fun.
Flying in an open cockpit is fun . . . but the "wind flowing through your hair" doesn't happen. You're wearing a helmet with headphones and microphone . . . and you have a plex-

iglass windscreen in front of you. Still, you are very much aware of the cool ocean air flowing in and around you in the cockpit. Even on a warm day, it's a wee bit on the cool side. (I was, of course, in my traditional uniform of shorts and sandals.) Prices start at $199 for two people for one-half hour in the air, $399 for an hour and a fantastic Sunset Flight for $499. Nice gift for that special someone in your life . . . or if you'd rather fly alone and take the controls while the company pilot backs you up . . .that can be arranged as well.
For awhile, I was in Seventh Heaven. Lovely day for flying . . . beautiful vintage aircraft, and two of the neatest people you'll ever want to meet. Brian and Janene Shepherd . . . the owners and operators of Fun Flights are the perfect hosts. Give Janene a call at 760.805.4213. Brian will likely be out flying the Travel Air. Janene is a hoot and one of the prettiest young gals you'll ever meet. They have a fascinating background, which I'll detail in a subsequent story. For now . . . I'm back on earth . . . wishing I was back up in the
Give Us This Day Our Daily Chuckle
Meanwhile . . . we have the Wings of Freedom Tour back again this year and it’s at Palomar Airport this coming weekend, Saturday and Sunday, April 26 and 27. One of the vintage aircraft on display is the B-24 . . . a major aviation contributor to the WWII war effort. For a look at this wonderful war bird, enjoy our friend and fellow writer, Mark Carlson’s account of a recent flight on board the ‘Witchcraft” by Mark Carlson
Time travel is possible. All it takes is a little Witchcraft.
But rather than the ‘Eye of newt and toe of frog’ black magic, this witchcraft is real. In fact, it’s an airplane. ‘Witchcraft’ is the world’s last flying B-24J Liberator bomber. Owned and operated by the Collings Foundation of Stow, Massachusetts, ‘Witchcraft’ is part of the annual Wings of Freedom National Tour. Along with the Boeing B-17G Flying Fortress ‘Nine-O-Nine’ and an equally rare North American P-51C Mustang, ‘Witchcraft’ tours the country, offering onboard tours and rides. And that’s when the magic begins. Today, most of us have no concept of what ‘flying’ really
Father Patrick exclaimed, 'Sweet Mary, Mother of Jesus! Why didn't ya tell me the dog was Catholic? ••••• Father O'Malley answers the phone. 'Hello, is this Father O'Malley?' 'It is!'
This week, a compendium of wit, wisdom and neat stuff you can tell at parties. Enjoy!
Can You Imagine Life Without The Irish?
Muldoon lived alone in the Irish countryside with only a pet dog for company. One day the dog died, and Muldoon went to the parish priest and asked, 'Father, my dog is dead. Could ya' be saying' a mass for the poor creature?'
Father Patrick replied, 'I'm afraid not; we cannot have services for an animal in the church. But there are some Baptists down the lane, and there's no tellin' what they believe. Maybe they'll do something for the creature.' Muldoon said, 'I'll go right away Father. Do ya' think $5,000 is enough to donate to them for the service?'
'This is the IRS. Can you help us?' 'I can!'
'Do you know a Ted Houlihan?' 'I do!'
'Is he a member of your congregation?' 'He is!'
'Did he donate $10,000 to the church?' 'He will.'
••••• An elderly man walks into a confessional. The following conversation ensues:

means. We’re used to sealing ourselves into smooth, pressurized aluminum tubes among rows of tight seats and electronic diversions. Six miles above the ground we have little contact with the world outside. The air is recirculated and the engine noise is a constant, irritating whine.
That bears no more resemblance to flying than television does to reality. The only way the modern, 21st century American can truly ‘slip the surly bonds of Earth’ is to ride in a vintage airplane. There are plenty of Stearmans and Pipers, Jennys and Wacos out there to show us what it is really like to fly, to hear the roar of the airstream, to feel the thrum of a radial engine as the ground passes by far below. But even that special experience pales in comparison to riding in a warbird. By definition, a warbird is any former military aircraft that is now in civilian hands. We see them at air shows. Beautifully restored Mustangs, Corsairs, Dauntlesses and Hellcats lure thousands of aviation buffs. To watch one of these magnificent relics of the Arsenal of Democracy roar overhead at 250 knots is not easily forgotten. Yet how many of us have the opportunity to be up there, actually inside the airplane? Only a lucky few.
As an aviation historian and writer, I spend a lot of time around warbirds, learning their stories and thrilling to the power of their engines. After years of meeting and interviewing pilots and veterans, I have my favorites, such as the B-17 and P-51, but I still have a soft spot for the unsung heroes of the air war, the C-47 Skytrain, PBY Catalina and a few others. They too played a major role in our victory over fascism nearly seventy years ago. One of these is the Consolidated B-24 Liberator. Once the skies over Europe were literally black with thousands of them carrying the war to Hitler’s Third Reich. Over 18,000 were built in San Diego, Fort Worth and Willow Run. Now a tiny few remain in museums and static displays. Only one still flies. That’s ‘Witchcraft.’
She’s not as big as a 747, nor as sleek as a B-2 Spirit. In fact, next to the graceful B-17, the Liberator seems to be an ugly duckling. With her slab-sided fuselage and graceless twin rudders, ‘Witchcraft’ is hardly a thing of beauty. Yet victory in the air could not have been won without the B-

'That's not senility,' replied the doctor. 'Senility is when you forget to zip down.' ••••• A woman was having a passionate affair with an Irish inspector from a pest-control company. One afternoon they were carrying on in the bedroom together when her husband arrived home unexpectedly. 'Quick,' said the woman to the lover, 'into the closet!' and she pushed him in the closet, stark naked. The husband, however, became suspicious and after a search of the bedroom discovered the man in the closet.
'I'm an inspector from Bugs-BGone,' said the exterminator.

24. They could fly farther, faster and higher with a bigger bomb load than the more famous Flying Fortress. The B24 took the war farther afield than any other American combat aircraft until the emergence of the B-29 Superfortress. Standing next to ‘Witchcraft’ it’s impossible not to be awed by her size and hidden grace. Low to the ground, her boxlike fuselage seems too ponderous to fly.
The slim 110-foot long Davis wing supports four 1,200 hp Pratt & Whitney R-1830 18cylinder Wasp radial engines. The fuselage bristles with .50 caliber Browning machine guns. Her smooth aluminum skin is painted a dark olive drab and emblazoned with the star and bar of the U.S. Army Air Force. Since this is the only flying B-24 in the world, she has to have a celebrated name. On the nose is ‘Witchcraft’ in white script.
The original ‘Witchcraft,’ a B24 of the famed 467th Bomb Group of the 8th Air Force in England, was the first Liberator to complete 100 missions without an abort or serious crew injury. She flew an
amazing 130 missions over Europe.
Visitors are able to tour the inside of the venerable bomber and see what it was like inside. For anyone used to modern commercial air travel, the stark, spartan interior will surprise them. Bare zinc-chromate painted ribs and longirons, exposed control cables and hydraulic lines are interlaced among belts of .50 caliber ammunition and oxygen bottles. But the Liberators weren’t built for comfort. They were built for one reason: to carry four tons of bombs to destroy the enemy’s war industry.
Ten young men flew the Liberator. Four officers; pilot, co-pilot, navigator and bombardier were supported by six enlisted men; a radioman, nose, top, ball and tail turret gunners and two waist gunners. Their average age was 22 and they came from every state of the Union. They were the core of the mightiest air armada the world would ever see.
Yet as impressive as ‘Witchcraft’ is to examine at close quarters, to take a ride in it is a truly memorable experience. It’s the kind of thing you need on your ‘Bucket List.’ I recently flew in ‘Witchcraft’
on the 2013 Wings of Freedom Tour. I’ve flown in several warbirds, including the B-17 and B-25 Mitchell. While they left a lasting impression, my ride in ‘Witchcraft’ will remain with me forever. Once I was seated in the forward end of the waist compartment just ahead of the retracted ball turret, a smiling crewman came to check my seatbelt. He told me that once we were at cruising altitude, I could release the belt and move freely around the interior of the plane.
After the hatches were closed and the bomb bay doors rolled down, the engines were started. Unlike the annoying whine of modern commercial jet turbines, the radial engines’ roar is like hearing the growl of a huge tiger straining at the leash. Their rumble is just as much felt as heard, and one by one they bellowed to life. The sound became a force that penetrated my soul and began to transport me back in time. I smelled the scent of raw power as the propellors drove the air past the open waist windows. Then ‘Witchcraft’ turned to the distant runway. Looking around, I saw every face with the same expression: awed wonder. When we reached the runway threshold, what I took to be the
full power of four engines was increased until it was beyond belief. And then we started moving, slowly at first, but then faster and faster. The distant hangars and parked civil airplanes slid past like spectators at a parade and then were gone, falling far below. Still the four roaring Wasps increased their tempo. A virtual gale of wind swept through the B-24, whipping my hair and filling my lungs. It was one of the most exhilarating moments of my life. A short time later I heard the tinny sound of the bell telling us we could release our belts. One by one the passengers walked carefully around the ball turret mount and into the waist compartment. As a military historian I wanted to see what it was like to stand at the waist guns in flight. I’ve interviewed scores of men who once dueled in the skies over Europe and the Pacific, but only when I was standing in ‘Witchcraft’ and feeling the massive plane around me did I ever think. ‘How the hell did they do it?’ I’ve read hundreds of accounts of air combat, yet it was only when I took the spade grips of the Browning and swiveled it around to aim at an imaginary Me-109 swooping in for the

On Saturday night, April 19th, officers from the Escondido Police Department participated in a DUI Saturation Patrol.

During the evening, three drivers were arrested for DUI, and two drivers were cited for being unlicensed or having a suspended license. Two vehicles were impounded. Escondido Residents Angry About Proposed Annexation
At a hearing held yesterday (Wednesday) at the Escondido City Council one of the items to be considered is the annexation of 1200 acres of the Valley View area north of the Safari Park and East of Rockwood Road. (the old Crowder property) The scope of this project is 550 estate homes.
Angry residents in the area say that some of the claims by they developer are untrue when they say that any neighbors have been contacted about this proposed project. They say not one resident of Old Wagon Road, Yucca Trail, Melrose Ranch, Old Guejito Grade Road, nor any of the 100 plus families living in the area have been contacted by the developer.
Residents argue the proposed project is a nightmare because the developer is planning to take over Old Wagon Road and pave it which will generate a lot of unwanted traffic and people to this area and ultimately destroy the quality of life they have enjoyed for generations. They further argue that they have already begun to survey Old Wagon Road and there hasn't even been an annexation. They also argue that they live in the county and will remain in the county after the annexation, so how do they think they can take over the private roads of residents? The resident group claims the city is being very secretive about this and even the assistant director at Safari Park was unaware of the plans to use their road as an emergency escape route. David Granum, spokesperson for the group of residents said, “This whole thing stinks and is being done under the radar.” Barbara Redlitz, Director of Community Planning responds that this is all in the preliminary stage, that the developer would have to fund $5000 to cover staff time just to examine the proposal; they would also have to demonstrate they have

Letters to the Editor City Council Prayer Time
Pat Mues stirred up some controversy among readers with her article about Escondido City Council’s custom of beginning weekly meetings with a silent or oral, supposedly nondenominational, basically Christian prayer. The two gentlemen whose letters of response, each in their own way, represent opposing views of this public practice. One is a more fundamentalist Christian believing that somehow prayer will bathe the City Council in righteousness thus protecting our citizens from municipal harm. The other; a devout practitioner of Zoroastrianism, an ancient Indian religion based upon the practice of good thoughts, words and deeds, feels the Council’s prayer time is non-

Antonio Mays and his son, Antonio Mays, Jr., come on alternate weeks so they won’t be back until May 3d. We’ll be there, cash in hand for even more bottles.
It would probably make sense for the Council to abandon prayer time at official meetings in favor of preparing themselves beforehand according to their own beliefs. However, I have yet to witness any divine inspiration from the city hall dais. /s/Sid Colquitt Escondido, CA.

next cover story! And it was not just their storyline; it was their masterful style that seduced us all.
I am a retired school teacher from Tennessee and a former military man (USN-Ret) currently living in North County San Diego. I have been a big fan of your paper for some five years now. As an AfricanAmerican, and former Navy man, I can vividly recall reading your cover story titled, "Black Patriots: America's Forgotten Legacy." The way it was written, composed, and related to your readership brought pride and tears to my eyes. Your publication produced this towering piece before the motion picture "Red Tails," which was released in 2012, a motion picture that excited many Americans (of all races) to want to learn more about these forgotten Black patriots. But "Red Tails" was a sensationalized account; a fictionalized portrayal of the Tuskegee Airman, your cover story was not. It was pure fact, and it preceded and surpassed anything Hollywood touted in their motion picture. That was cutting-edge, and The Paper rightfully drew praise! Well, this is just a humble comment from "We" the people. Just an old retired school teacher from the South, sounding off, and who merely wished
to take time out and say, "Thank You."
As Mr. Travis expressed, yes, I also miss those three writers, as well. And you, Mr. Lyle E. Davis, are quite a master story-teller yourself. And that's Gospel. Best wishes. From: Theodore "Teddy" Tisdale, North County San Diego, CA. Pointy Pointy Fingers
Recent letters to you complaining about the humor column and the imposition of religion, on your readers are hilarious to me. Al Capp (creator of ‘Lil Abner’ comic strip) created a group he called "SWINE" (students wildly indignant about nearly everything). He would no doubt love our latest group: "WHINE" (We're Highly Indignant about Nearly Everything).
Complainers: Note: if you don't like something just ignore it and don't try to ban it for others. This has worked for me for 77 years now and I recommend it. You can now start writing your nastygrams about this opinion of mine. I need the laugh. /s/Jim Sartor San Marcos, Ca.

Cities Throughout California Have Innovative Ideas.
In my attempt to keep up with the news out there, I sign up for many newsletters, including one from the League of California Cities. Although I do not always agree with their stand on issues, I do appreciate the information, analysis and links to sources provided free of charge on their site. This week’s update seemed particularly apropos because of this article: West Hollywood Creates Tools to Make Art a Part of the Community. I found an idea that could work here — think Johnson building on 2nd (and I hope the League will forgive me for pulling a whole paragraph from their site): … the West Hollywood City Council approved the waiver of temporary use permit fees for applicants utilizing empty commercial storefronts for pop-up galleries and performance spaces. To encourage and promote this type of alternative temporary
use while a storefront awaits a new tenant, the city’s Economic Development Division held a Commercial Broker’s Roundtable at one of the pop-up art storefronts. Staff created an information sheet on how to implement a successful pop-up art project. More than six projects have taken place in pop-up art galleries during the last few years, including a site-specific series of dance performances and Los Angeles Nomadic Division’s “Perpetual Conceptual: Echoes of Eugenia Butler” exhibit. West-Hollywood-Gallery-inFormer-Hardware-Store If you like that article, go back to the site’s California City Solutions page and read about hundreds of projects over the past four years that have been given the Helen Putnam (Petaluma Mayor, educator and County Supervisor) award that “recognizes the outstanding efforts and innovative solutions that improve the quality of life in local communities, implement efficiencies in service delivery and operations and provide services responsive to the local community.” These awards

Latest Rainy Day Fund Effort – Serious or Stunt?
Last week, the Governor called for a special session to establish a Rainy Day Fund in California. A Rainy Day annually would Fund reserve money for future emergencies or years when revenues do not cover budget needs.
If a Rainy Day Fund had been in place prior to the recession, California’s budget may not have suffered such a drastic decline. The state would have had savings to help navigate the challenging economic climate.
In 2010, a bipartisan group of legislators passed a measure to create a strong Rainy Day Fund with no spending loopholes. Voters were supposed to consider it on the

2012 ballot, but the majority-party irresponsibly delayed it to 2014.
The politics that have postponed practical financial planning are unacceptable. California should have strong reserves in place to prevent budget crises and keep spending in check. Erratic state spending is an option struggling Californians cannot afford and have already endured.
We already have a Rainy Day Fund that taxpayers can vote on. The public should be skeptical of this latest effort to water down spending restraint.

High-speed Rail Folly
Recent news about California’s high-speed rail project has been confusing, to say the least. An April 8 story ran in the Fresno Bee under the headline: Highspeed rail construction could start next month near Madera. That same day, another headline in the Sacramento Business Journal stated: California’s high-speed rail project could run out of money next year. Voters approved Proposition 1A in 2008, which authorized a $9.95 billion bond to help finance what was described as a $40 billion high-speed rail system, a projection that has now escalated to $68 billion. Despite the recent announcement of a new business plan, court rulings have clouded the project’s underlying finances and future prospects remain unclear, at best.

ly water and highway upgrades that will cost billions. Add to this bleak picture hundreds of billions in unfunded mandates threatening California’s future solvency and it becomes clear we should not be wasting taxpayer dollars on a train to nowhere.
Starting construction on a project that may soon run out of money is total folly. Apparently, California has adopted a policy of wasting large amounts of money upfront so that we will be locked into wasting significantly more later on. Consequently, I am supporting proposals to divert highspeed rail funding to badlyneeded infrastructure projects that will increase water storage capacity and upgrade our crumbling highways and bridges. In the process, we will create jobs and serve the needs of all Californians for generations to come.

Thoughts on Public Education
Recent controversies---in San Marcos over school attendance boundary changes; in San Diego over the installation of a former school principal as the latest superintendent of the nation’s nineteenth largest school district; and the national debate over the efficacy of charter schools versus traditional public schools---has left me to ponder the state of public education in our land.
Experts of every stripe postulate a consistent theme in the saga of the decline of public schooling in America---little tried in the name of fixing things has worked.

I am in my middle sixties and can remember vividly going through a period during my elementary schooling where new methodologies of teaching were introduced to my classrooms. The things that were tried out on me are no longer used, some forty years later.
Attempts at teaching reading by abandoning phonics during my daughter’s formative years in favor of “whole language learning” gave way to a return to a modified form of teaching phonics by the time her younger brother passed through school.
For decades we were told by teachers and their unions that if we paid them better we would attract more people into the profession and consequently raise the bar on teacher quality. Well, in many districts in California, especially here in San Diego, the pay isn’t bad, and there are plenty of college graduates who would gladly accept the starting salary offered today’s new teacher. Has the teaching gotten any better? That’s a matter for conjecture. The real question is: Has the learning gotten any better?

obtained easements for primary and emergency road rights; if not obtained, then, and only then, would the city entertain the idea of eminent domain to acquire the roadway rights. However, she pointed out, the city is very reluctant to use eminent domain. She also pointed out that the development would provide for high end homes, which would bring a higher median income residency into Escondido, which is the stated objective of the city council.
While the council may lean favorable toward the intent of the development, namely, to increase the median income residency of the city, they also recognize serious land use issues involved. Final resolution of this proposal if any, is a long way off, she said. As of press time the matter had not yet been heard by the Escondido City Council. The Paper will follow up on this issue and report in the next edition.

a great hue and cry to see that Civil War epic on screen. Producer David O. Selznick did not disappoint. He cast Hollywood most popular leading man, Clark Gable, and newcomer Vivian Leigh, as the lead actors. While it won “Best Picture” at the Oscars, Gable lost out to Robert Donat for his role in “Good-bye Mr. Chips.” Leigh surprised everyone by beating out four other leading ladies for her memorable role of Scarlet O’Hara.
While movie buffs all have their favorite movie(s), few will argue that 1939 produced a string of films unrivaled in any other year and that will last forever as “classic.”
In addition to “Gone With The Wind,” there were too many great 1939 films to mention here, but the nominated “losers” of the Best Picture Oscar that year were: “Dark Victory,” “Good-bye Mr. Chips,” “Love Affair,” “Mr. Smith Goes to Washington,” “Ninotchka,” “Of Mice and Men,” “Stagecoach,” “Wuthering Heights,” and, of course, “The Wizard of Oz.”
The reading public was fixated on Margaret Mitchell’s bestselling novel, “Gone With The Wind.” Accordingly, there was

After 75 years, It’s Still the Best Movie Year
It was the end of a decade filled with “feel good” movies, which helped to take the sting out of the Great Depression. But, Hollywood outdid itself that year, producing films that have entertained every generation since. It was the year the stars shone brightly.
It was a formidable list of actors vying for top honors in their respective roles. The cast of “Wind” was enough to compete against: with Gable, Leigh, Lesley Howard, Olivia de Haviland, and Hattie McDaniel, who won for Best Support Actress. She was the first of her race to be recognized with an Oscar. But, how

attack did I understand how hard it had been for those kids 70 years ago. Twenty thousand feet above a hostile country, they defended their thinskinned bombers from the Luftwaffe’s savage fury. The skies over Germany were a deadly web of black flak bursts and falling planes.
I closed my eyes and saw only the past, felt the heaves and twists of the huge plane as it flew towards its target, heard the muffled ‘whump!’ of exploding 88mm shells and felt the impact as red-hot shrapnel sliced through the aluminum skin. I felt and heard the heavy chatter of the machine guns and calls of ‘Coming in! Three O’clock low!’ over the interphone.
Out the starboard window I saw the Mustang flying beyond the wingtip. I felt like saying ‘Hi little friend! Go get them!’ Leaning forward I saw the long, graceful wing with its two mighty radials thrumming out their combined 2,400 horsepower to move the B-24 at 160 miles per hour. 3,000 feet below the landscape of Southern California rolled past in a carpet of tan and green. But again my mind went back to August 1943. The hills and
fields of central Romania swept past in a blur only fifty feet under the belly. Ahead were the smokestacks and towers of the Ploesti refineries. Far off on both sides were more than 170 other Liberators wingtip to wingtip. It was only the B-24 that could fly the nearly 1,500 miles between Benghazi and Ploesti. The Liberators drove their way through a sky alive with hot metal and black smoke.
When the 16-hour flight was over, 53 bombers had been shot down, taking more than 400 men with them. Operation Tidal Wave had been a disaster, but it made the Liberator famous.
I headed back to the tail turret and imagined being the last man in the plane, guarding it from pursuing Focke-Wulfs and Messerschmitts. It was small and cramped, a tiny Plexiglas and metal cocoon armed only with machine guns and one young life. Passing through the long bomb bay, I held the twin ropes strung along the catwalk. The wind screamed past me until I made it to the forward bulkhead. Above me was the flight crew, calmly shepherding their huge charge on its course. Seventy years ago other men, much younger, guided other B24s to places like Bremen,

Wilhemshaven, Naples, W e i n e r - N e u s t a d t , Schweinfurt, Regensburg, Berlin and Ploesti. Place names hardly pronounceable to the farm boys and city kids of the Great Depression, they have long since been burned into the collective memories of the ‘Greatest Generation.’
In Liberators that flew from Pacific islands, Libya, Italy and England, men like Killer Kane, Addison Baker, Lloyd Hughes, Jimmy Stewart, Louis Zamperini, Bob Cardenas and thousands more became legends in life and death. Above and behind the pilots the upper turret mount scanned the sky overhead for German fighters.
Under the flight deck I crawled past the retracted nose wheel into the forward compartment, the domain of the bombardier. Here, seated uncomfortably behind his Norden bombsight, a young officer waited for the shuddering bomber to pass over the target. When he saw the crosshairs intersect the building or railroad yard, he flipped a switch, releasing four tons of high explosive from the Liberator’s belly. At that moment, the ten brave boys had done their job for Uncle Sam. Now they were flying for

themselves, and turned for their home base. I saw all this in a stark powerful reality in a way no book, movie or documentary could ever convey.
All too soon it was time to return to my seat for landing. With a gentle lurch, the Liberator touched down on the same runway. After pulling into its assigned parking place the engines slowed and were still. The silence was literally deafening.
I made my way back to the rear hatch. When my feet touched the white tarmac, I looked around. It was a normal day in the peaceful United States. It was no longer 1943, but 2013. I hadn’t had to feel the hot steel tearing through the plane, I didn’t really hear the thumping chatter of the Brownings. The war was long over and the young boys had long since become old men. White-haired and slower now, they walked beside the silent behemoth, perhaps remembering long missions and the faces of their comrades. Sometimes they smiled, other times they held back tears. To them the ride was far more real, still alive in their minds. I never experienced what they had. For me my ride in ‘Witchcraft’ was a slice of the past come to life.
‘Witchcraft’ is the very last of her kind. She is the only survivor of a long-vanished breed of warriors, of an immense aerial armada that changed the course of history.

do you vote against James Stewart as “Mr. Smith,” Mickey Rooney for “Babe in Arms,” and Laurence Olivier in “Wuthering Heights?”
And, then there was Greer Garson in “”Mr. Chips,” Irene Dunne in “Love Affair,” Bette Davis in “Dark Victory,” and Greta Garbo for “Ninotchka.”
John Ford’s “Stagecoach” was an important film because it made John Wayne a top box office star for the next 40 years until his death in 1979. Claire Trevor was his leading lady, who turned in a stellar performance. And, don’t forget shady John Carradine and cavalry officer Tim Holt. Thomas Mitchell won Best Supporting Actor for his role as the drunken doctor aboard the “Stagecoach.” The 12th Academy Awards gave Walt Disney his eighth (in a row) Oscar for “The Ugly Duckling” in the animated feature category. Down through the years, Disney and costume designer Edith Head probably won more gold statuettes than any other in their category.
While “Gone With The Wind” swept most of the Oscars, “Stagecoach” won for Best Musical Score, “Wizard of Oz” for Original Score and Best Song, (Over The Rainbow).

fact, as that first Resurrection Day was coming to an end and people were headed home, still buzzing with all that had happened, Jesus joined two travelers and had dinner with them. You can read the story in Luke 24:13.

Moreover, Jesus kept appearing to his disciples, to groups on believers and especially to Thomas, who said he wouldn’t believe the Resurrection until he could not only see, but feel, for himself.
That story is in John 20. One of the great Easter songs is “He Lives.” It sounds like an anthem for Easter Morning and it was likely sung in many churches last Sunday. But a careful look at the lyric suggests that the song is written in the present tense. It was not written just for Easter. It was written for this week, Monday through Friday, and the next week and the week after. Our neighbor would have Easter all put away by now and decorations for the next holiday already in the yard.
But Easter is not over. The traditional Easter Greeting is still in the present tense: “He is risen! He is risen, indeed.”

Escondido • Mayor Sam Abed Celebrate Arbor Day!
Arbor Day is a special day. Since 1872 Arbor Day has been a day dedicated to tree planting and increasing awareness about the importance of trees. Escondido has a great appreciation for the value of trees and has proudly been designated a “Tree City USA” for the past 19 years.
The City of Escondido, in conjunction with the Professional Tree Care Association of San Diego (PTCA), will hold an Arbor Day Observance on April 25, 2014 from 7:00 a.m. until
4:00 p.m. on the grounds of the California Center for the Arts, Escondido. During that time the PCTA will be donating personnel and equipment to provide proper tree care for the trees there, as well as the planting of 16 trees.
If you are a homeowner, Arbor Day is a great day to examine your trees and plan for the future. Look for broken branches or evidence of disease or insect infestation. Think about how planting new trees might improve the look of your property or provide wind or heat protection. Take a trip to your local nursery to see what’s available and to get new ideas. And, oh yes, plant a tree.

With the arrival of spring comes the annual tradition of “spring cleaning”. During this time of the year, many homeowners organize garages, clean out attics, and clear off patios to prepare for the summer.
When tackling the cleaning this year, please think twice about helping others and helping the environment. While clearing out closets and storage areas, think about items no longer needed or wanted. Clothes, furniture, books, small appliances and toys may still have life in them. Don’t throw them away with your regular trash;

$12,000. That’s the amount assessed as a fine against the political arm of the Oceanside firefighter’s union for failing to report nearly all of its donors for a year and a half, and for failing to disclose a contribution it made to help re-elect the city mayor. The penalty was imposed by the state’s Fair Political Practices Commission against the Oceanside Firefighters Association Political Action Committee based on five flawed campaign reports covering the group’s financial activity from July 2011 through December 2012.
instead, consider donating them to a charity. Many organizations are always looking for goods that can be reused and possibly resold at thrift stores. Donating to thrift stores can provide others a means to purchase gently used items at a significant discount, while helping non-profits generate income.
If you discover half-empty cans of paint or oil, used batteries, or other toxic materials in your garage not suitable for donation, take them to the Vista Household Hazardous Waste facility. Electronic waste can also be dropped off. The facility is located at 1145 E. Taylor Street and is open from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturdays. While no appointment is necessary, proof of residency is required.
The committee failed to identify donors who individually contributed $100 or more, to the tune of $121,485. The donations -- all from union members -- represent 99.9 percent of the money the group received during that period, records show.
The group also failed to report a $1,600 donation it made to the Committee to Re-Elect Mayor Jim Wood in September 2011.
The political action committee exists to promote the political and legislative interests of its union members, and lend support to candidates and issues that support “preserving or improving the wages, hours and working conditions and other fire service/labor related issues,” the union website says.
San Marcos • Mayor Jim Desmond City uses Cal Recycle Funding for Street Maintenance
The City of San Marcos was awarded a $283,500 grant through the State of California’s Cal Recycle Rubberized Tire Grant Program to fund the recently completed street maintenance project along San Marcos Boulevard.
This grant program assists in alleviating environmental impacts and increasing the use of recycled materials in roadway surfacing. The grant funded portion of the project consisted of laying approx-
imately 6,000 tons of a recycled tire and asphalt composite. This section of rubberized asphalt will reduce road noise, shorten braking distances, reduce maintenance and will last for years to come. Ultimately, the City is committed to leveraging resources outside of taxpayer dollars to continue exceeding service expectations and delivering a high quality of life in San Marcos.

teachers are any worse, or that teachers in the days of low pay were any better. Government involvement in the teaching process, union featherbedding and demographics have all played a part in complicating a process already of Brobdingnagian size and complexity.
Teachers and the rest of the education establishment have also lobbied hard for more money on a regular basis. While you’ll get no argument from me that you often get what you pay for, there is scant evidence that increased budgets have resulted in a commensurate increase in educational attainment. Political meddling into the teaching process in a vain attempt to cure any manner of societal ills, is
On average, 22 new Seniors are added monthly and receive rides in one or more of the three services listed above. In particular the Volunteer Driver Program has seen tremendous growth. In the last year, this program added four new drivers, bringing the team total to 18 regular volunteers and increased its rides given by over 400, offering a total of 3,034 rides to Oceanside Seniors annually.

often to blame for the increased cost and decreased benefit associated with public education.
Much is being made these days about the use of standardized testing to measure teaching efficacy. I believe in accountability as much as the next person, but I also believe that it is virtually--no, make that literally---impossible to devise a “standardized” test that will comprehensively determine whether a given student in a certain life situation, who may have their own challenges in how they learn, sitting in a classroom with thirty other children is being taught effectively or not. This should not be a political debate---right vs. left, conservative vs. progressive. This should be a conversation about our children’s and grandchildren’s future and our future as a nation.

In the millennia prior to the WWII it was estimated that the sum total of human knowledge doubled each century. By the end of WWII the doubling estimate was every 25 years, Today the doubling of human knowledge is estimated to occur in as little as 18 to 24 months. Whether you believe these estimates or not, all who lived through the last half of the 1900s experienced an incredible acceleration of technology and knowledge. In the 1950s the family doctor treated the entire spectrum of medical issues. Today your family doctor knows what specialist to refer. The amount of knowledge in medicine today precludes any one doctor from possessing even a significant fraction of treatment knowledge.

In our day-to-day lives we routinely deal with apparatus and technologies that we simply don’t understand. This is a relatively new experience for mankind. In the past we completely understood the functions of our tools and weapons. Growing or hunting food and building shelter were things well understood. Transportation by foot or animal held no mystery. Men and women were confident in their ability to control their own lives. It has only been within the past century that we have come to rely on things we can’t comprehend. That has fetched up the uneasy knowledge that we no longer can rely on our own wits and knowledge to survive.
These days we need help, lots of help. To navigate banking, buying property, investing, paying taxes, insurance, running a business we need legions of CPAs, lawyers, money managers, etc. Schools that once required a student, teacher and a place to sit down now need psychologists curriculum advisors, grief counselors and administrators. Our governments gush forth torrents of laws, regulations and bureaucracies to regulate our lives. Post Viet Nam generations accept the new order as natural.

San Diego County doesn’t include 205,642 local households living below the Self-Sufficiency Standard, a measure which, unlike the Federal Poverty Level, reflects the true cost of living based on local cost levels as well as family size and age of children. In total, a shocking 38% of all working-age households in San Diego County have incomes too low to cover the basic expenses of living here. This free workshop on the 2014 “Making Ends Meet” report and the Self-Sufficiency Standard can help you with financial education, program evaluation, fundraising, and advocacy. If your organization provides program in the areas of workforce development, affordable housing, health, asset building, social equity advocacy or anything else related to advancing people’s self-sufficiency, this session is for you. The workshop will be offered twice; once in North County on Thursday, May 8, 10:30am-12noon, at North County Lifeline’s Vista Office, 200 Michigan Avenue, Vista. To RSVP or if you have questions, contact Marylynn McCorkle, ARS Coordinator at email@example.com or 760.471.5483.

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