Author’s Note: Due to the unexpected level of popularity of the first front cover story titled “Disneyland’s Legacy and Hidden Secrets!” published on February 11, 2016, herewith is a part-two continuation. The popularity of the first story resulted in back copy requests from our readership which resulted in all back copies being ‘sold out.’ This is a continuation of newly-added Disneyland secrets by popular demand. THE FIRST SECRET. When Walt Elias Disney sat on a park bench watching his daughters on an amusement park ride, along with other parents, he felt sad that kids were enjoying adventures in which their parents seemed excluded. A secret plan was crystallizing in his mind to someday create a truly magical kingdom, a realm where both parents and their children could enjoy enchanted adventures together. Where they could explore wondrous lands and experience dreams – not apart, but as a happy family. According to Tony Baxter, Sr. VP, Walt Disney Imagineering, “When Walt Disney first dreamed the idea of Disneyland in California he wanted to create a place where families could come and play together in hopes of making life-long memories.” Walt had many personal secrets sprinkled like stardust in his dreams. These secret thoughts occupied both his nocturnal dreams as well as his daydreams. Walt envisioned building his own amusement park most of his adult life. As early as 1932 he wanted to create his brainchild on a 16-acre lot directly across from his studio offices in Burbank, California. But his dreams of a special kind of amusement park even preceded these episodes. His daughter, Diane Disney Miller (1933 – 2013) reflected back on those early years, “When I was growing up, he was always talking about doing an amusement park someday. It probably went back farther than that, to a big amusement park in Kansas City. He and his sister would stand outside the gates and look in. I think he always had it in his mind.”
But it was on this park bench at Griffith Park in Los Angeles, when Walt was watching his two little girls, Diane and younger sister, Sharon, laughing and having fun on the carousel when he suddenly had a vivid epiphany. A revelation overshadowed him and a flood of details and colorful ideas – once partially hidden – suddenly coalesced in fluid symmetry and a stunning picture emerged like a beautiful mosaic. Walt had just glimpsed the future and he saw not just his lifelong amusement park idea – he saw his Disney Land concept as never before! The very same Merry-Go-Round in Griffith Park, Los Angeles, where Walt’s two daughters, Diane and Sharon, enjoyed and played upon is still there today, located at 4730 Crystal Springs Drive. It was there where a most magical vision materialized for Walt Disney that would forever change the world and

transform the crude carnival into a vast dreamland of sweeping beauty, creative wonderlands, and breathtaking imagination in which both children and parents could experience lifelong dreams together and not separated as in most amusement parks of the day.
SECRET BENCH. This very bench upon which Walt Disney envisioned his dreamland for the future has been relocated to Disneyland where it can be seen and appreciated today. The modest green bench has found a quiet, remote home at the Opera House lobby just off Main Street, USA. But very few know of its existence, let alone, its location. By the way, the Main Street Opera House in Town Square is the oldest building in all of Disneyland. The structure used to serve as Disneyland’s lumber mill
between 1955 and 1961. The Town Square, itself, is truly historical on many levels. The antique cannons positioned in the center of the square were actually used by the French army during the 1800s (although they were never fired in battle).
Aside from these magnificent cannons in historical Town Square, it is there at the Opera House lobby where you can find a great secret -- the actual, celebrated bench upon which one of history’s most beloved human beings sat and first conceived of Disneyland (in great detail). But, you may be a trifle disappointed. Like a priceless piece of art from the Louvre Museum in France, this irreplaceable piece of history is roped off with a warning sign that forbids anyone to sit on Walt’s famed park bench.

If you can, somehow, ask permission to just gently run your fingers over its green, aged-wood frame, well, it is rumored to bring lifelong good luck! The location, and even existence, of this historical bench is still a general secret not widely known to the public. It is a treasure-hunt gem just waiting to be discovered by you on your next Disneyland visit!
(Special Notation: the famous MerryGo-Round, in Griffith Park where Walt Disney first realized his ideas for Disneyland, was built in 1926 and was featured at San Diego’s 1935-36 California Pacific International Exposition! After the Balboa Park World Exposition ended, the legendary carousel was purchased in 1937 by Mr.

Ross Davis and relocated 120 miles north of San Diego to its present home in Griffith Park, Los Angeles. The carousel has since become somewhat of a mecca, attracting crowds of people as well as the Hollywood element. Several television shows and motion pictures have used the legendary Merry Go Round as a locale backdrop. For example, the carousel is featured at the end of the 1988 comedy film “Twins” starring Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito. Also, the carousel has been featured in the 1992 blockbuster movie “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” as well as countless other TV and film projects. However, the famous bench where Walt Disney first crystallized Disneyland in his imagination is strangely missing from Griffith Park and remains a mystery – until now. Shh! -- you now know the secret location of that much soughtafter park bench that the general populace often wonders about!) WHERE WALT LIVED IN DISNEYLAND. Though it is no longer a big secret, it is still a fascinating fun fact worth repeating. Walt Disney built a private apartment above the Fire Department in Town Square near the entrance to Main Street, USA. It was Walt Disney’s pride and joy and he loved it so much that he just decided to live there, at least part of the time. “All the years Walt came down here he would often spend Friday and Saturday nights in that apartment.” (Tony Baxter, Disney Studios, Ibid.) If you look up at the apartment, today, you will see a light shining from the window where Walt Disney would sometimes live. “Walt would use the fire pole to slide down from the apartment to the firehouse below. If you look up to the window above the fire sta-
Give Us This Day Our Daily Chuckle This week, a compendium of wit, wisdom and neat stuff you can tell at parties. Enjoy! About those Church Hymns
A minister decided to do something a little different one Sunday morning.
He said "Today, in church, I am going to say a single word and you are going to help me preach. Whatever single word I say, I want you to sing whatever hymn that comes to your mind."
The pastor shouted out "CROSS." Immediately the congregation started singing in unison, "THE OLD RUGGED CROSS." The pastor hollered out "GRACE." The congregation began to sing "AMAZING GRACE, how sweet the sound."
The pastor said "POWER." The congregation sang "THERE IS POWER IN THE BLOOD."
tion you can see a lamp burning. Whenever Walt was in the park he always had that lamp burning so that everyone would know that he was in the park at the time, and I think all of us sort of want to believe that the spirit of Walt Disney is still in the park, so that lamp is kept burning every day.” (Tony Baxter, Disney Studios, Ibid) Walt Disney often stood in this apartment observing the crowds of people below. Seeing the nonstop human traffic coming into his beloved newly-built Disneyland park moved him to say, “We’re gonna kick ourselves for not buying everything within the radius of ten miles around here!” He once more saw the future and already realized Disneyland’s need to expand way beyond its present size.
SECRET SUITE IN CINDERELLA’S CASTLE. Not to be confused with Sleeping Beauty’s Castle (which has tours), this is a gem of fascinating information on the secret luxury suite in “Cinderella’s Castle.” It is one of the most beautiful luxury hotel suites on the planet. And to stay overnight is by invitation only or by winning one of many fabulous contests that Disneyland occasionally sponsors. ABC television newscasts have gone so far as to evaluate the Cinderella Castle Suite as the most beautiful in the world (along with its counterparts at various Disney resorts). Looking over the lush photos, I would have to readily agree. It is like a luxurious virtual-reality experience, except it is real – you physically step into a fantasyland dripping with elegance, gold, and dreamlike settings! To capture phraseology: it is like dying and going to Heaven. Mesmerizing stained glass windows, 24carat gold floor tiles, magic mirrors that ripple like a mirage in a heatwave and then transform magically into huge television screens right before your very eyes! Unbelievable, but true.
The Pastor said "SEX" The congregation fell into total silence. Everyone was in shock. They all nervously began to look around at each other, afraid to say anything.
Then all of a sudden, way from in the back of the church, a little old 87-year-old grandmother stood up and began to sing "PRECIOUS MEMORIES." My Wife Is Missing ...
Husband: My wife is missing. She went shopping yesterday and has not come home... Sergeant at Police Station: What is her height?
Husband: Gee, I'm not sure. A little over five-feet tall. Sergeant: Weight?
Husband: Don't know. Not slim, not really fat.
DREAM SUITE ABOVE NEW ORLEANS SQUARE. Here’s a third dream suite, this time hidden away at Disneyland’s New Orleans Square! It is yet another jewel in the crown that must not be overlooked. Above the Pirates of the Caribbean at Disneyland’s New Orleans Square, is a secret luxury apartment that is designed to entertain VIP guests during special events – or, just because. The super luxury secret hideaway includes a living room, two master bedrooms, two bathrooms, an outdoor patio area overlooking park visitors below, plus a breathtaking view of the Great Rivers of America. It is a secret 2,200-square-foot luxury apartment created as part of the “Year of a Million Dreams” promotion that ran from 2006 through 2008. Famed production designer, Dorothea Holt Redmond (1910 – 2009) who worked on the interior sets for the motion picture “Gone With The Wind” (1939), helped design this Disneyland Dream Suite hidden above the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction. Walt Disney’s wife, Lillian, also helped decorate it. Unfortunately, Walt Disney never lived to see its completion. Guests staying at the apartment are transported up by secret staircase or hidden elevator. The interior is described in part by Disneyland officials as such: “Through the doorway at the top of the stairs is the Living Room, designed in a French Provincial style reflecting the New Orleans setting. Unusual decorative items like a full-size carousel horse, a mechanical songbird and original wall paintings of European castles will conjure up memories of Walt Disney.” Special Disney magic surrounds guests that stay here, such as magical fireflies that fly about the open-air patio illuminating it like fairy dust! The same magical fireflies can be seen on the Pirates of the Caribbean boat cruise. But wait, there are other special-effect surprises in each and every room! “It could be a special

25 MAGICAL STEPS. Walt Disney was a genius with an eye and mind for detail. He once timed himself and measured the exact amount of steps from a hot dog stand to the distance where he finished it! On average it took Walt twenty-five steps to finish eating a hot dog. He also observed people and found the 25 to 30 steps as the median distance. So, from this eye-for-detail information, Walt Disney established the location of trash receptacles to be approximately 25 to 30 steps away from

SECRET BRASS APPLE. This is a “must” experience waiting for you at Disneyland in Anaheim, California! And it remains a top secret even to this day. What an unexpected surprise is waiting for you and your special loved ones to make your Disneyland experience full of life-long memories. Located at “Snow White’s Scary Adventure” there is an enchanted brass apple perched above the magical spell book. While waiting in line for the ride, just rub the brass apple when you see it. You will hear the sound of thunder and the witch, herself, will be heard to laugh loudly. There it is, just waiting for you the next time you visit this very popular attraction!
Sergeant: Color of eyes?
Husband: Changes a couple times a year. Maybe dark brown now. I can’t remember.

each hot dog concession stand in Disneyland!
Walt always viewed things in precise fashion and was dead-set about keeping the park clean and organized. On one particular visit, Walt noticed things were not all shipshape and not to his liking. Finding a maintenance foreman he told him a particular area needed painting. When the head maintenance man replied he would have it quickly done during the weekend, Walt fired back, “Nope, I want it painted and finished by tomorrow morning.” Teams of painters descended upon the project painting throughout the night and finished before the park opened the following morning, just as Walt wanted. Walt’s regimental insistence on doing things correctly and timely led to another secret – this time among his own employees that was kept secret from Walt, himself!
WALT’S SECRET CODE. Walt Disney’s demanding work ethic and organizational skills were well respected throughout the park. Animators soon developed a private code signaling other colleagues if Walt Disney was coming down the hallways. The coded phrase, “Man is in the forest” was soon picked up and used by other Disneyland employees throughout the park to look busy! Walt Disney’s genius sometimes saw the world in organizational patterns and regimental disciplines. That’s why when it took 25 steps for Walt to finish his hot dog, Disneyland trash cans would be located 25 to 30 steps away from the person who sells them!
HAUNTED MANSION DEATH CERTIFICATES. Yup, you read that correctly, and what a great secret! While visiting Disneyland’s Haunted Mansion attraction be sure to ask one of the cast members for a “Death Certificate” for a souvenir from the 999 ghosts that haunt the place! The much sought-after Haunted Mansion Death Certificate is to die for (pun intended). However, cast members do not give these ghoulishly precious items out to just anyone who asks for one – it’s purely up to a cast member’s discretion! So, with that in

mind, apply the three golden rules: be polite, be polite, be polite when asking for a Haunted Mansion Death Certificate souvenir. You’ll have something your friends will kick themselves for not knowing about!
MAIN STREET SHOPS HAVE NAMES OF REAL PEOPLE. This is both a wonderful and touching secret. If you glance at the Main Street shops and windows along Disneyland’s Main Street, USA, you will see actual names of people who were once affiliated with Disneyland. For example, on one window above Main Street you’ll see a tribute to a great Disney artist and animator: “Blaine Gibson ‘The Eternal Pursuit of the Artists’ Craft.’” Legendary all-around artist, Blaine Gibson (1918 – 2015), once sent a letter inquiring for Disney Studios employment back in the late 1930s only to be told that he would have to undertake an art test through the mail. The young, aspiring artist drew his celebrated sketch of a boy milking a cow with one udder squirting milk directly into the mouth of a little kitten. Gibson’s immortal 1939 drawing landed him his first job with the Walt Disney Studios at age 21, earning $16 per week, on one condition: the Disney Studios loved the drawing so much that they wished to attain the rights of the cow and the kitten for future use!
Gibson was legendary for staring at people’s faces in public places, studying facial details for his characters on such projects as the Pirates of the Caribbean. Disneyland author, Martin Sklar, relates an amusing true story on how Disney artist, Blaine, would stare at the local churchgoers, studying specific features and characteristics. Author, Sklar, paused and then delicately inquired, “You mean, that some of our pirates (in the Pirates of the Caribbean) might resemble congregants in our church?!” (In a 2013 memoir, “Dream It! Do It! My Half-Century Creating Disney’s Magic Kingdoms,” by Martin Sklar.)
There are many other examples of artists, cast members, Imagineers and others that appear on the windows on Main Street. You only need to look the next time you walk down memory lane on Main Street, USA.

Regarding Main Street, that was Walt Disney’s favorite “themed land” in his entire Magic Kingdom. Though it is widely-repeated that Main Street, USA was modeled after Walt Disney’s hometown of Marceline, Missouri – that is not entirely correct! According to Walt Disney, himself, and official park records, yes, Main Street, USA was, indeed, largely inspired by Walt’s hometown (Marceline, Missouri). However, it was not the only inspirational hometown that he patterned Main Street after – there were others! According to Harper Goff, who worked on Main Street USA, he showed Walt some photos of his own childhood home of Fort Collins, Colorado. “Walt liked the look, and so many of the features of the town (Fort Collins, CO) were incorporated into Main Street, USA.” Another inspirational source for the Main Street, USA concept came from the Henry Ford Museum & Greenfield Village. Walt Disney liked the look so much that he visited the Greenfield Village scenario two times during the 1940s. All these early inspirational sources came into play when Disneyland’s Main Street, USA came to fruition. Walt Disney forever loved the look and ‘feel’ of Main Street, USA’s turn-of-the-century American town (circa 1910). WALT AND ROY DISNEY’S HIDDEN INITIALS. Speaking of hidden names of real people around the park, if you are in line for the Pirates of the Caribbean, glance up at the wroughtiron railing above you. There will be brothers Walt and Roy Disney’s initials designed out of wrought-iron. On the left side of a balcony railing you will see the large letter “W” inside of a larger “D” for Walt Disney. About 7-feet to the right you will see the wrought iron letter “R” inside of a larger “D” for Roy Disney. Perhaps only 1 person in 10,000 ever notices the existence of these important two initials! Try to take a photo of the initials of these two prominent Disney pioneers, together, in one shot. The captured image is said to bring the shutterbug (photographer) good luck!

Crest. The family crest is composed of three lions horizontally atop one another within a border with a fourth lion at the top of the crest itself. The family surname was originally d’Isigny (from “Isigny”) of Norman French derivation. The Disneys are descendants from Normans who settled in England around the 11th century. This replica of the official Disney Family Crest was put in place at Sleeping Beauty’s Castle in 1960. Almost no one ever notices it – except you on your next visit!
HIDDEN MICKEYS. Disneyland has long been famous for hiding secrets throughout their park’s history so that visitors may have fun discovering them. The most prevalent examples are the countless “hidden Mickeys” (images of Mickey Mouse) that Disneyland has secretly placed around the Anaheim park. Some are easy to spot and some are very difficult. This most popular phenomenon of finding the hidden Mickeys has now spread to both children as well as adults! Also, parents with children or grandchildren have indelible memories searching for these secret Mickey Mouse icons, together, that make for lifelong memories from the Magic Kingdom! The various images and designs of Mickey Mouse are especially abundant around rides and attractions and yet they go largely unnoticed by most park visitors! According to an official Disney website, “We’ve hidden ‘Mickeys’ throughout the Disneyland Park.” Here are some helpful hints to finding them (1) Search for Mickeys in all sizes. (2) Be alert – some are right in front of you but are not easy to see! (3) Keep your eyes alert, especially in line for a ride or attraction! And (4) You’ll see a lot of hidden Mickeys when you first walk down Main Street, especially on the golden lampposts! Also, never hesitate to ask a Disneyland cast member for helpful hints.

Escondido Police Detectives have arrested Rennard Cawkwell, a 46 year old resident of Oceanside on several felony charges related to his online communication with a 16 year old female. Rennard Cawkwell is a registered sex offender.
The 16 year old victim in this case believed that she was communicating online with a 17 year old male. What the victim did not know was that the “17 year old” that she was communicating with was actually a 46 year old registered sex offender on active GPS monitored parole, Rennard Cawkwell.
GPS monitor removed. The very next day after being released from parole, Cawkwell arrived at the victim’s residence. Fortunately, family members of the victim and an alert neighbor prevented his efforts to further victimize the female. The incidents were reported to the Escondido Police Department.
Escondido Police Detective Jeff Udvarhelyi began an investigation into the events. Detective Udvarhelyi is part of the Internet Crimes Against Children Taskforce (ICAC), which specifically works to arrest those who use the internet to prey upon children. Recognizing that Cawkwell was aggressively seeking underage girls, Detective Udvarhelyi devoted countless hours to quickly, and thoroughly, completing a highly complex investigation. Detective Udvarhelyi’s tenacity paid off late yesterday evening when a search warrant was served on Cawkwell’s Oceanside home and Cawkwell was taken into custody.
Cawkwell was charged per Penal Code: Meet with a minor for sex, Send harmful material to a minor, Online sexual enticement of a minor, Annoy/Molest minor with a prior offense, and Posess child pornography. During the time that Cawkwell was posing as a 17 year old he engaged the victim in sexually explicit conversations. Cawkwell was released from parole in late March, 2016 and his

We were concerned that her loss in the recent Escondido mayoral election might have drained her of her political energy . . . and it did . . . for awhile. But now it appears the political batteries have recharged and she looks forward to the campaign.
Who will be running against her? Not sure. Word is that Escondido Mayor Sam Abed has hand-picked her successor . . . Joe Garcia. Don’t know a thing about him but, if he runs, that’s likely to change.

Escondido Police Chief Craig Carter said, “I am proud of the work that was put into this particular case. This case highlights the dedication that members of the Escondido Police Department have in protecting the community. It also highlights the dangers that lurk on the internet. We urge parents to have conversations with their children and teens on the dangers of online communications. Sadly, Rennard Cawkwell is not the only person posing as something that he is not for the purposes of targeting children.” Please visit the Internet Crimes Against Children website for more information and resources available to keep children safe while online. www.icactaskforce.org Attempted Homicide Suspects Arrested

Sad to learn that he lost his wife about a year ago. They had been married for over 60 years. ••••• Also sad to learn that good friend, Gene Williams, of Lake San Marcos, passed away last week. He was very active in the Lake San Marcos community. He and his wife, Evie, attended many social functions and volunteered for a lot of the various activities that make Lake San Marcos such a fun community in which to live. Evie, at one time, was a sales rep for The Paper and we have remained friends through all these years. Our condolences to Evie and all of Gene’s extended family in Lake San Marcos, all of whom are heartbroken at their loss of a fine, fine man. ••••• Hidden Valley Kiwanis 19th Annual Trout Derby was a great success

Except - Valley View makes a big deal about their lobster . . . I’ve see crawdads bigger than these lobster. Fairly tasty, but small. Everything else was outstanding and we all had a wonderful time. Still, I probably won’t go back for awhile. I just don’t like to stand in lines in order to eat. And I don’t like teeny-tiny lobster. Other than that, I’m not a fussy eater/diner.

Aboard the Flying Fortress
Editor’s Note: We became acquainted with a long time advertiser June Weaver (June, the Cleaning Lady, see her ad on Page 13.)
We discovered she is an aviation buff but with particular love for the B-17. I think we kinda figured out how to make one of her dreams come true. We retained her as a special correspondent for The Paper. Her assignment? Ride a B -17 from French Valley Airport (near Temecula) to Palomar Airport, Carlsbad. This is her story:
Wow! Glory in the air!
This is a FLIGHT, not a crawl through! I've crawled through this gorgeous B17 for twenty years; imagining what it was like for those brave young guys who got to fly in these beauties day after day while defending our precious nation. Now here am I, after three quarters of a century of wondering, actually flying in, looking out of, feeling and hearing what they did so long ago. It's as though I have at last become a part of them.
The love of all things warbird began early in my life. I was born in Tucson and grew up in Silver City, New Mexico, right under the flight path to Tucson's Davis-Monthan air base. When I was two we went back to Tucson to visit and were able to tour the air base. This was a year before Pearl Harbor. I remember wandering away from the grownups and gazing in awe at all the different planes parked there. I went under a two engine bomber, slipping and sitting down in a
puddle of oil. I was sure I was in big trouble because I had on a brand new snowsuit. Mother didn't scold much.
B-17 “Nine-O-Nine” - June’s Aircraft
During the war I devoured all the pictures of planes in the newspapers and magazines. The papers were full of stories and pictures of the air war all over the world. After the war I didn't see many of the military planes except for an occasional air show. In 1964 the book "Twelve O'Clock High" was turned into a weekly TV series. I was in absolute heaven for an hour every Friday night for an hour. They featured the B17s and used many old films which showed details of the planes I had never been able to see before. I was able to see the plane they used in the show at Chino Airport. I have pictures of myself and my kids in front of it. It is is now in the Chino Museum. The 'Picadilly Lily." Fast forward again to early 2016. I received a call from lyle e davis, editor/publisher of THE PAPER in which I have advertised my housecleaning skills for at least a dozen years. A few weeks earlier my ad had been mistakenly left out of one issue. Lyle wanted to make it up to me by
featuring me in his "Man About Town" column. The subject was my being a self described "warbird freak," loving all vintage military aircraft, especially the B17. He hinted there might be more
and to stay tuned. Another call informed me that a flight had been arranged for me from French Valley Airport in Murrieta to Palomar McClellan Airport in Carlsbad. This was on the same Collings Foundation B17 I had first crawled through twenty years earlier. Lyle picked me up at home in Escondido, drove me up to Murrieta and would drive back to Carlsbad to meet me when we landed. My special assignment was to be a media rep for THE PAPER, describing my experience, the airplane, and the Collings crew. We arrive in plenty of time to have a fantastic lunch in the airport cafe, observing the bombers from our table next to the glass wall. Sitting in the lobby waiting for flight time, we met two of the originals. The first to come in was E. Royce Williams, a Navy figher pilot who spent 38 years in the service and had the distinction of shooting down four Russian Migs in one day. He still loves aviation and tries to be on hand whenever the
Collings planes come in. He is now 91 years old.
The second was another 91 year old who was a bombardier on a B17 flying out of England to targets all over Europe, mainly deep into Germany. Robert "Duke" O'Donnell was to be my passenger companion on the flight. I interviewed him and learned he was with the 303rd Bomb Group, which flew the most missions of any in the 8sxth Air Force. On one of his missions the Germans sent up over 300 flak bursts timed to explode at the same height at the same time. He was struck in the face by shards of plexiglass from a direct hit on the nose of the plane. He survived and completely healed. It was such a joy to share the flight with such a special man who was there in the beginning. Flight time arrived with the B24 starting up and taxiing out as we were being briefed on the privileges and restrictions of our journey. We were briefed, assisted aboard and settled in by Tony Dyer, flight engineer. Tony is a delightful English gentleman who made us feel a part of the B17 world on both sides of the ocean. Duke remarked it seemed like old home week. This was his first to be in a B17 since the first months of 1945.
We were settled in seats in the radio section; he in the chair at the desk that the radio operators sat at during the bomb runs. I was on the floor in a modern cushion seat which had an original seat belt. Most of the original

Disneyland - Part II Cont. from Page 3
The fad and popularity of finding Mickeys has captured millions of peoples’ imaginations! In a television episode of George Lopez titled, “George Goes to Disneyland,” there was a contest to see how many hidden Mickeys the television-viewing audience could find! The prize was over $10,000 and a free trip to Disneyland! Spying more than a dozen ‘hidden Mickeys’ is said to bring the viewer good luck and good fortune! So, whether you are a child or an adult – the challenge is waiting to be met, the next time you visit Disneyland!
MICKEY MOUSE’S VOICE. Whenever you watch a Disneyland cartoon of Mickey Mouse – depending on the year – you may actually be hearing Walt Disney’s voice! From 1928 to 1947 Walt Disney was the voice of Mickey Mouse! Eventually, Walt turned over these vocal gymnastics to English voice actor, Jimmy MacDonald. However, Walt still loved doing the voice-overs for his beloved Mickey Mouse so much that in 1955 Walt Disney returned to the studio to provide Mickey Mouse’s voice, again, for some of his television shows of “The Mickey Mouse Club.”
DISNEYLAND’S SECRET FERAL CATS. Of all the secrets in all of Disneyland, this one has sparked the most interest by far! And not only here in America, but the topic buzzes around the global internet – daily -- on various Disneyland blogs, sites, and chat rooms in various languages crisscrossing most countries! And especially among animal-rights groups, internationally, which constantly monitor the feral cat situation in Disneyland, USA. The hundreds of legendary feral cats that freely roam the Magic Kingdom (mostly after closing hours) in Anaheim, California even have their own popular websites, such as www.disneylandcats.com. However, for reasons that will become clear later, this is one secret that officials of Disneyland wish to keep “low profile” and a subject they often avoid discussing around members of the print media (including me). So, I had to do some digging.
The history behind the untamed cat population at Disneyland was one of the best kept secrets of all-time. Even now. Apparently, the felines trace back to when Disneyland first opened in 1955, over sixty years ago! Stray cats were always there even before construction began, living among the brush and trees and rural farmlands that predated Disneyland engineers. Cat-smart, they adapted and lurked behind the scenes moving about in stealth fashion as only felines can do. Over the years the fourfooted enemies of Mickey Mouse grew into the present colony numbering somewhere between 150 to 200 strong, today. The symbiotic relationship is that Disneyland takes care of the cats (unofficially) and the cats take care of the mice population (apologies again, to both Mickey and Minnie Mouse). Disneyland provides feeders in discreet locations throughout the park for their feline guests, ensuring them of both food and water. In turn the feral cats wander about, mostly unseen, helping to keep the rodent population to a minimum. According to Gina Mayberry, who takes care of the official Disneyland park animals, such as the two-thousand pound Draft horses who pull the trolleys on Main Street, the cats are free to come and go as they please. “We view them (the cats) as partners,” she explains. Disneyland soon outsourced further help and expertise on taking
proper care of their cats by interfacing with such animal rights groups as “Best Friends Catnippers” and “Fix Nation.” In 2001 Disneyland cooperated in a trapneuter-return (TNR) program, essentially neutering/spaying and health-inspecting the untamed cats. Since 2007 such outsourcing ceased with Disneyland workers now taking care of the cats along with local veterinary clinics. Disneyland intends to keep the cats feral and only occasionally traps them for veterinary updates such as tagging, flea treatments, vaccinations, spaying and neutering. Unfortunately, in January of 2015 the City of Anaheim passed a new law which states: “It shall be unlawful for any person to intentionally provide food, water, or other forms of sustenance to a feral cat of feral cat colony within the boundaries of the City. It is not a violation of this section for any person to feed or shelter feral cats while working with an animal control agency under contract with the City of Anaheim.” Understandably, animal rights groups have expressed outrage, referring to such laws as “completely ignorant,” and “poorly worded.” Currently, these various animal rights groups are campaigning to have the feral cat law rescinded in part or in its entirety. As one animal rights activist expressed to me: “Resorting to capturing and killing these cats is abominable. And the extreme measures -- as advocated by this new Anaheim law -- to cut off all food supplies and starving them to death is barbaric!” To Disneyland’s credit, they’re holding fast to their current position of taking care of their feral cat community.
If you keep your eyes peeled today, you might spot one of these cats peering here and there, perched atop the cliffs of Big Thunder Trail, or darting about just off Main Street USA. Blink, and their gone! Just as evasive as any other Disneyland secret!
HISTORICAL SUMMATION. Walt Elias Disney (1901–1966) took a long, arduous path to Disneyland in Anaheim, California. Success never came easy to him and he faced-down challenges that would have destroyed a lesser man. Bankrupt, he finally decided to travel west to Hollywood in 1923, with only $40 in his pants pocket. Walt’s older brother, Roy, was already living in Los Angeles and provided Walt with some financial backing. But artistic and business differences flared between Walt and Roy and, at times, they would decide to go their separate ways. Happily, their love for one another would win out over any disagreements.
Because Walt’s concept of a Disney Land was so foreign and unique for its era, he struggled mightily for financial backing, often failing in the process. Unlike the conventional amusement parks of the day which could turn over a fast buck with roller coasters, beer guzzling, and freak shows, Walt’s ideas seemed unrealistic. His concepts appeared too idealistic to gain support from banking institutions. For example, Walt wanted to sell ‘nostalgia’ on Main Street, USA, and ‘enchanted dreams’ at Fantasyland. Such intangibles as dreams and wishing upon a star between adults and children in ‘theme lands’ seemed reckless projects. Even brother, Roy, had called Walt’s plans “screwy ideas!” even refusing to invest more than $10,000 of the studios’ capital! In short, Walt’s ‘screwy ideas’ were unreliable and unrealistic collateral for loan institutions such as banks. Even Walt knew how outlandish and crazy his concepts must have sounded to a world that was not yet ready for the future and such fanciful abstractions.

The Legislature is moving into the frantic last few months of the current session, and I am happy to report two more of my bills, AB 1754 and AB 1764 appear to be progressing toward final Assembly approval. Since San Diego County is home to a large retired population, it also attracts criminals who prey on the elderly and on dependent adults. San Diego County’s Adult Protective Services agency confirmed a total of 1,148 unique cases of elder and dependent adult financial abuse over the past year. In response, I have introduced Assembly Bill 1754, which sets up a two-year pilot project in San Diego County, financed through the Victims’ Compensation Program, to provide mental health and financial counseling to victims of these crimes. AB 1754 recently passed both the Public Safety and Aging and Long Term Care Committees with wide bi-partisan support. Additional hearings are pend-

Assessing the fiscal impact of health care policies can be difficult, especially under the current 12 month fiscal analysis required by the California Health Benefit Review Program (CHBRP). A review after 12 months may not capture the full impact of legislation that creates a complex health care mandate, or of new treatments which may show higher costs up-front but better patient outcomes and success rates in the longer-term with actual cost savings. AB 1764, which allows for two and five year analysis under CHBRP, passed the Health Committee in a bi-partisan vote on April 19, and has also been referred to Appropriations. I will provide more updates on my legislation as we progress through the last year of the 2015-2016 session.

Disneyland - Part II Cont. from Page 6
Walt summed it all up in his own words, “I could never convince the financiers that Disneyland was feasible, because dreams offer too little collateral.” As fate would have it, Walt and brother, Roy, accomplished the unthinkable and created a radical theme park with vastly independent atmospheres: Main Street, USA, Fantasyland, Tomorrowland, and Frontierland. Walt Disney was a visionary, no less than Galileo, Edison, or Columbus. The song lyrics of “When You Wish Upon a Star” reflect pure Walt Disney. Walt once asked, “What youngster has not dreamed of flying with Peter Pan over moonlit London? Or tumbling into Alice’s nonsensical Wonderland? In Fantasyland, these classic stories of everyone’s youth have become realities for youngsters of all ages to participate in.”
On February 21, 1980, Russian astronomer, Ludmilla G. Karachkina discovered a celestial body, a minor planet that was assigned number 4017. Its official designation is, “a minor planet or Main-Belt asteroid.” It was her prerogative to name the newly-discovered heavenly body as she wished. She chose to honor the American animator and dreamer, Walt Disney, for his genius, and his desire to bring human families more closely together as a nucleus. And to enable families to share dreams, together. Karachkina feels that Walt Disney has accomplished all of that through his Disneylands that encircle the planet Earth today, Disney Lands that wrap the planet like a brightly colored garland. The Ukrainian scientist and astronomer wished to pay homage to Walt Disney and she did. She officially named her newly-discovered celestial body, “Disneya,” which is Russian for Disney.
(It should be pointed out here that there are countless companies that offer, for example, to name a star of your choice for a price. Google “Name a star” and you will clearly see that these companies all offer you a certificate, a chart showing the location of your chosen star, etc., along with the name you wish to give it. “Buying” or “naming” a star creates the impression that the buyer “owns” the star or that the “name” chosen for the star is authentic. It is not. The so-called “owner” or “name” of the star you have chosen is only known as such in that particular company’s database that ‘sold it’ to you. In other words, no astronomer, observatory, or scientific magazine will ever refer or recognize the star as belonging to you, or by the name you have given it.)
However, in the case of Russian astronomer, Karachkina, her discovery does give her the official right and recognition to name her newly-discovered minor planet, “Disneya” as it is known in astronomical registry. Planets are discovered frequently now, as are distant stars. The Russian astronomer’s tribute to Walt Disney, therefore, may seem insignificant and trite. She offered only a minor planet, amongst giants. A lowly asteroid, in place of a more regal gift. It becomes increasingly difficult in life, especially today, to value true sentiment behind any gift, apart from the cost. Or to comprehend the level of love behind a simple crayon-drawing from a small child – which they offer, like a priceless treasure -- to their parents.
Likewise, Russian astronomer, Ludmilla Karachkina, proudly bestows her gift – without shame – to a man who brought great joy to her youth. As a small child
she often wished upon a star that she would someday be able to honor her American hero with a Heavenly gift. Even if it were a modest one.
Historically Speaking by Tom Morrow
Ludmilla Karachkina is still surveying the heavens with her telescope, searching for those elusive dreams – dreams once placed deep inside of her – by Walt Elias Disney. Indeed, she is still searching the heavens with her telescope. She appears to have a relentless joy in chasing after dreams. This determination was given to her as a little Russian girl when she first heard Walt Disney say, “All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.” And she does.
The Man on the Ten-Dollar Bill
One of the most controversial, yet revered, of our so-called “Founding Fathers” had to be Alexander Hamilton whose portrait graces our present-day ten-dollar bill. Why controversial? As much a part as he played in the founding and organizing our federal government, there was a darker and down-right mean side to Hamilton – so-much so that he lost his life in a duel with a sitting Vice President.

I tell my clients that if you are dealing with an honest person or company, a handshake is enough; but if you are dealing with crooks, then a contract 2 feet high is no protection. In a crooked contract the beginning and the end are usually innocuous, but buried in the middle under a sub-paragraph is a “Gotcha Clause” that most people will not notice.

Hamilton was born out of wedlock on Jan. 11, 1757. He was a Founding Father of the United States, chief aide to General George Washington, one of the most influential interpreters and promoters of the U.S. Constitution, the founder of the nation's financial system, and the Federalist Party. He created the world's first voter-based political party; is credited as the Father of the United States Coast Guard, and the founder of The New York Post newspaper. As the first Secretary of the Treasury, Hamilton took the lead in the funding of the states' debts by the Federal government, the establishment of a national bank, a system of tariffs, and friendly trade relations with Britain. He led the Federalist Party, created largely in support of his views; he was opposed by the DemocraticRepublican Party, led by Thomas Jefferson and James Madison, which despised Britain and feared that Hamilton's policies of a strong central government would weaken the American commitment to Republicanism. Born and raised in the West Indies, and orphaned as a child, Hamilton pursued a college education through the help of local wealthy men. Recognized for his abilities and talent, he was sent to King's College
(now Columbia University) in New York City. Hamilton played a major role in the American Revolutionary War. At the start of the war in 1775, he joined a militia and in early 1776, raised a provincial artillery company, to which he was appointed captain. Hamilton soon became the senior aide to General Washington, who sent him on numerous important missions to tell other generals what Washington wanted. After the war, Hamilton was elected to the Congress of the Confederation from New York. He resigned, to practice law, and founded the Bank of New York. Hamilton was among those dissatisfied with the weak national government. He was a leader to create a new Constitution by writing 51 of the 85 installments of The Federalist Papers, which are the most important reference for Constitutional interpretation.
Hamilton became the leading cabinet member in the new government under President Washington. He emphasized strong central government and successfully argued the implied powers of the Constitution, which provided the legal authority to fund the national debt, assume states' debts, and create the governmentbacked Bank of the United States.
Facing well-organized opposition from Thomas Jefferson and James Madison, Hamilton mobilized a nationwide network of friends of the government, especially bankers and businessmen. It became the Federalist Party. Hamilton played a central role in the Federalist Party, which dominated national and state politics until it lost the election of 1800.
In 1795, he returned to the practice of law in New York. He tried to control the policies of President John Adams (1797–1801). In 1798 and 99, Hamilton called for mobilization against France after the XYZ Affair and became commander of a new army, which he readied for war. However, the Quasi-War, while hardfought at sea, was never officially declared and did not involve army action. In 1801, when Jefferson and Aaron Burr tied for the presidency in the electoral college, Hamilton manuvered to defeat Burr and elect Jefferson.
Hamilton continued his legal and business activities in New York City, but lost much of his national prominence within the Federalist party. When Vice President Burr ran for governor of New York state in 1804, Hamilton crusaded against him as unworthy. Hamilton perpetuated a number of scandalous rumors and newspaper articles, including one that suggested Burr committed incest with his daughter. Taking extreme offense to Hamilton's insinuations, Burr challenged him to a duel and on July 11, 1804, in Weehawken, N.J., the Vice President mortally wounded Hamilton, who died the next day.

small amount of Energy at a very high cost. Maybe as much as 5X as much as conventional. 2. Green energy is put into the grid and used first. That transfers the cost to everyone and hides the real cost of green energy.
3. A percentage of all energy must be from a renewable source. I can’t recall the figure. The big BUT here that the law excludes energy from water. That makes no sense at all. Here in the Central Valley a large percentage of energy is produced by irrigation companies, districts, as a byproduct of delivering irrigation water. 4. Here is the worst of all … solar increases energy costs because it can’t be stored. So conventional power plants must be maintained and run even when the power is surplus. It is much more expensive to shut down and restart a conventional plant than to just leave it running a full capacity. They can not be run at less than full.
It looks like someone has figured out how to screw over the public by hiding the weakness of green energy. Maybe some day we will be able to store green energy and many of these problems will go away. /s/John Wilson, Modesto, CA.

We will begin by diagnosing the problem. You tell us what's wrong, and we will not only confirm it, but also diagnose where the issue is stemming from.
In most cases, air conditioning problems stem back to low levels of refrigerant. Unfortunately, replacing the refrigerant will not be enough to fix the problem. If your refrigerant levels are low, we will need to determine why.
If it is because of a leak, we will need to determine where the leak is coming from before we can repair it. If there is no problem with your refrigerant levels, then we will move on to rule out other issues that could be causing your air conditioner to malfunction.
For the hot days that are sure to come... now's the time to get the jump on the air conditioning season and be ready for when the temps climb and climb and climb... you'll be enjoying air conditioned comfort.

Declan and Laura Lei, 5-yearold American Staffordshire Terrier mixes, were found running stray in the streets of Escondido. After settling in, the shelter staff moved them to separate kennels to see if they could be apart, as it’s often very challenging to find a home for two large dogs, but these BFFs said ‘no way’! They cried for one another all day while apart and it broke their caregivers hearts. Once they were reunited, it was all wiggly tails and kisses from these two love bugs! Upon first meeting them, Laura Lei and Declan may be a bit shy, but once they get to know you, they are very warm, snuggly and affectionate. Please give this pair the loving home they deserve by visiting San Diego Humane Society’s Escondido Campus at 3450 E. Valley Parkway. For more information, call 760-888-2275 or visit sdhumane.org.
ceremony was held at Hidden Valley Middle School to celebrate the first visible investments in safety features. Several previously open campuses had fencing installed around their perimeter to provide additional safety to students and staff on campus. School and community leaders came together to recognize the importance of campus safety and to thank the public for funding these and many pending improvements.
particularly important are the safety features that should be in place near all schools, including sidewalks, crosswalks and traffic calming measures. This duty falls to City government and we have a lot of work to do. Schools like Hidden Valley and Orange Glen HS are in neighborhoods where not all city blocks have sidewalks. Providing safe pedestrian access to all schools One thing that strikes me as is worthy of becoming a priority.

The Pastor Says . . .
Pastor Richard Huls, Retired
TAKING TIME TO SMELL THE FLOWERS
Most of you have either read or heard the saying, “Stop and smell the roses.” I wonder how many of you have done that recently? Do you have flowers to smell? Everyone should have access to a flower, if for no other reason, just to stop long enough to smell it.
In my early days of gardening, I never raised flowers. I was more interested in harvesting the fruit and vegetables. Later on, I realized what I was missing by not having flowers, because while there is great satisfaction in produce harvesting, there is also a lot of work without the beauty and fragrance of flowers. I have come to appreciate flowers and what they represent and now I have many blooming along with the beds of vegetables.
Social Butterfly Cont. on Page 11
There are many delights in raising flowers, such as their color, basic construction, unique development, and responses they create on the part of those who enjoy them, but the greater value, at least for me, is their fragrance. I have noticed that when I give flowers to someone, whether they be sweet-peas, roses, or the coveted Eastern Lilac, the first thing done is to smell them to capture their fragrance. There is nothing more gratifying than to hear the verbal exclamations of “oohs and ahs.” There is always a disappointment if there is no fragrance.
The fragrance of a flower can excite, inspire, alter an attitude, humble, refresh, and motivate. In fact, studies have been done on the therapeutic effects of fragrances for healing, relaxation, sleeping, spiritual awareness, and even sexual desires. That is why it is so important that we take the time to stop and capture the fragrance and admire flowers. It helps remove some of the ugliness of life. Even God wants a sweet smelling fragrance with the sacrifices and offerings of His people. (Exodus 25:6) If He, in all of His power and being, wants such fragrance, because of what it does to him, how much more for us in the daily demands of life. STOP AND SMELL A FLOWER TODAY.

Rancho Santa Fe Road to get Pavement Makeover this Summer
This summer, motorists will notice crews working along Rancho Santa Fe Road and several other city streets in an ongoing effort to maintain and improve overall pavement condition. While originally slated for 2015, the work was postponed in anticipation of the forecasted El Niño season. With an expected completion of late fall, Rancho Santa Fe Road from State Route 78 to Lakeridge Drive will undergo a $3 million facelift that will remove major sections of pavement to restore the roadway and extend the life of the driving surfaces.

Most road repairs will take place during daytime hours; motorists are encouraged to plan ahead as traffic delays are anticipated. While this work may create a temporary inconvenience getting around town, these much needed repairs pave the way for lasting improvements that keep city streets in good condition for years to come.

3) Families are like fudge...mostly sweet, with a few nuts 4) Today's mighty oak is just yesterday's nut that held its ground... 5)Laughing is good exercise. It's like jogging on the inside. 6) Middle age is when you choose your cereal for the fiber, not the toy..
GREAT TRUTHS ABOUT GROWING OLD: 1)Growing old is mandatory; growing up is optional... 2) Forget the healthfood. I need all the preservatives I can get. 3) When you fall down, you wonder what else you can do while you're down there. 4) You're getting old when you get the same sensation from a rocking chair that you once got from a roller coaster. 5) It's frustrating when you know all the answers but nobody bothers to ask you the questions... 6) Time may be a great healer, but it's a lousy beautician. 7) Wisdom comes with age, but sometimes age comes alone. THE FOUR STAGES OF LIFE: 1)You believe in Santa Claus. 2) You don't believe in Santa Claus. 3) You are Santa Claus.. 4) You look like Santa Claus.
SUCCESS:How true this one is .At age 4 success is . . . ... Not piddling in your pants. At age 12 success is.... . . Having friends. At age 17 success is ..... . Having a driver's license.

The generation of Americans that raised us was unlike any that came before or since. Fire tempered in the Great Depression and united in by WWII, this generation understood sacrifice and commitment like no other. They won the war and then turned to raising families and building America. They were grateful for the opportunities and freedom they had fought so hard to win. They taught us to be proud of ourselves and our country and to care about and respect others. Like most kids in post war America we grew up in small towns but even those born in big cities really grew up in “neigh-

borhoods.” Whether town or neighborhood, we were always surrounded by people we knew. We knew the cops, the grocer, the priest, preacher and rabbi, the guy who owned the corner gas station, teachers and most of our neighbors. We knew these people and they knew us and our parents because we spent our lives in close contact with one another. We worked and played together. This was our world.
In that kind of close environment we all had to play by the rules. If you were a liar, a cheat or failed to respect your elders everyone would know. The woods, fields and streets were our playground and you only stayed indoors when you were sick. The social skills and friendships we made as we grew up reflected the informal trusting yet respectful relationships we observed our parents sharing with the other adults in our environment. We grew up caring for, respecting and liking the people around us.
Things have changed since those golden years. Small towns are now suburbs and big city neighborhoods are no longer cohesive. We no longer know many of our neighbors. We are more mobile and we don’t know local merchants because we shop in malls and superstores. We rarely even see folks we know when we’re out and about. We are more anonymous, less trusting and people aren’t as friendly. Our children attend huge schools, after school activities and sports are supervised and controlled. Our kids run like wolves in small packs
Discounts and installment payment plans are available for general public. Siblings and military families receive 10% discounts. The camp will take place at The Brooks Theatre, 217 North Coast Hwy (downtown Oceanside) and its adjacent Studio 219. For more information, call 760-433-8900 or visit www.oceansidetheatre.org. Contact the Youth Academy’s Director, Deborah Dodaro at firstname.lastname@example.org for details about the camp.
and rarely interact with adult neighbors. The social and behavioral pressures they feel are mainly from their peers, not adults.
Times and people change and each generation adapts to the “new normal.” Urbanization, TV, Internet, smart phones, transportation, and other technologies have dramatically changed the way we and our children live and interact day to day. It’s natural that older generations tend to like things the way they were in “the good old days.” So while we have a business that keeps us on the edge of computing and communications technology, we still cling to some of the things we loved about those earlier days.

radio equipment is still in place. We were both rubbernecking to see it all as the engines started and warmed up. We could see very little of the outside as we had to stay seated till we were airborne with wheels up. Tony got us up to walk about with orders not to talk to the pilots as they get grumpy if bothered, Pilots Mac Macauley and Mark Handley did a good job keeping us flying smoothly under beautiful scattered clouds. It really is not possible to describe the full emotions as I looked out at the four engines on those broad wings running in total sync. It really was jaw dropping, yet exactly as I had felt it would be.
Contemporary Women of North County (CWONC) supported Camp Pendleton’s “Eggstravaganza” annual spring event with a cookie decorating table. Children of Marine Squadron 369 stopped by CWONC’s table to show off their artistic talents, and their prize winning cookies were packaged to be shared with their families. This Marine Squadron has been adopted by CWONC and this event gave them another opportunity to let the Marines and families know they are appreciated for what they do for our country. Known as the world famous “Gunfighters,” they provide worldwide combat ready expeditionary aviation forces and humanitarian operations each year. For more info about CWONC, visit www.cwonc.org.
