Volume 47 - No. 20

Lots of kids might want to grow up to be president but millions of young Texans want to grow up to be whitehatted, silver-badged Texas Rangers. After all, the Texas Rangers are the oldest law enforcement agency in North America with statewide jurisdiction. Rangers have a heritage that traces to the earliest days of Anglo settlement in Texas. They often have been compared to four other world-famous law enforcement agencies, the FBI, Scotland Yard, Interpol, and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. The Rangers are part of the history of the Old West, and part of its mythology. Over the years, a distinct Ranger tradition has evolved.
That tradition comes as a result of a combination of the mystique of the old order of the mounted, fighting Texans, combined with a rich history, and a lot of very favorable publicity.
One of the most recognizable forms of publicity came from an old radio, and later, tv show known as “The Lone Ranger.”
For those youngsters who read The Paper, let us give a brief synopsis of

Created in 1933 by George Trendle for Detroit radio station WXYZ , the Lone Ranger was an overnight success. Over eight decades later, the popularity of the Lone Ranger remains high. The character starred in nearly 3,000 radio episodes, two movie serials, three feature movies, 18 novels, more than 220 television episodes, uncounted newspaper comic strips, comic books, cartoons and promotional items. Who was that "masked man?"
The Lone Ranger is the sole survivor of an ambush that killed five of his Texas Ranger comrades. With the help of Tonto, a friendly Indian who came to his aid, the Ranger buried his five companions and recovered from his injuries. In order to mislead the outlaws into thinking that all of the Rangers died, the Lone Ranger dug a sixth grave which was left empty. Hiding his identity with a black mask, he set out with his new friend to track down and apprehend the outlaws. HiHo, Silver! Away!
The popularity of the television western faded to near extinction in the 1970s. In the late 1980s it was reborn when baby-boomers, who grew up with the Lone Ranger and Tales of the Texas Ranger, hit middle age. The Lonesome Dove mini-series and

outnumbered by as much as 50-to-1, so it was common for each man to carry multiple pistols, rifles and knives.
One writer said that a Texas Ranger could "ride like a Mexican, trail like an Indian, shoot like a Tennesseean, and fight like the devil."
"Rangers ride helicopters more than horses," said a R a n g e r s spokesman. "We may have one or two who don't even know how to ride a horse." One Ranger who preferred to ride in cars or aircraft was Bill Wilson. As CoB senior Ranger captain in 1977, he told a Frontier Battalion Co.

authority. This ability must be proven before a man becomes a Ranger." That definition worked well more than 150 years ago and still fits today. Yet, unlike years ago, today Texas Rangers have access to modern communications, which keeps them in touch with the rest of the world. Despite the long history of the Rangers, the term "Texas Ranger" did not appear officially in a piece of legislation until 1874.
The Ranger story begins many years ago. In 1823, the Father of Texas, Stephen F. Austin realized the need for a body of men to protect his fledgling colony, the land settlement effort that marked the beginning of Texas' development. On August 5, 1823, Austin wrote that he would "...employ ten men...to act as rangers for the common defense...the wages I will give said ten men is fifteen dollars a month payable in property..." These men, not soldiers, not even militia, "ranged" the area of Austin's colony, protecting settlers from Indians. When no threat seemed evident, the men returned to their families and land.
Despite Austin's plan to pay a group of Rangers, the defense effort continued primarily on a voluntary basis.
By 1835, as the movement for Texas independence was about to boil over, a council of local government representatives created a "Corps of Rangers" to protect the frontier from Indians. These Rangers would be paid $1.25 a day and
Give Us This Day Our Daily Chuckle This week, a compendium of wit, wisdom and neat stuff you can tell at parties. Enjoy! Jesse the Chicken Plucker
Jesse was a chicken plucker.
He stood on a line in a chicken factory and spent his days pulling the feathers off dead chickens It wasn't much of a job. But at the time, Jesse didn't think he was much of a person.
His father was a brute of a man. His dad was actually thought to be mentally ill and treated Jesse rough all of his life. Jesse's older brother wasn't much better. He was always picking on Jesse and beating him up.
Yes, Jesse grew up in a very rough home in West Virginia. Life was anything but easy.
And he thought life didn't hold
could elect their own officers. Almost all the early Rangers may be labeled 'citizen soldiers.'
Cortina was defeated in a running fight that cost the lives of 151 of his men and 80 to 90 Texas citizens, including some Rangers.
When Texas declared its independence from Mexico, some Rangers took part in the fighting, though most served as scouts.
Certainly one of the most famous early-day Texas Rangers was John Coffee "Jack" Hays. He came to San Antonio in 1837 and within three years was named a Ranger Captain. Hays built a reputation fighting marauding Indians and Mexican bandits. An Indian who switched sides and rode with Hays and his men called the young Ranger Captain "bravo too much."
Hays' bravado was too much for many a hostile Indian or outlaw. In dealing with those deemed a threat to the young Republic, Hays helped establish another Ranger tradition--toughness mixed with a reliance on the latest in technology. The Republic of Texas was one of the earliest customers of a New England gun maker, Samuel Colt. Colt had invented a five-shot revolver, a weapon Hays and his men used with deadly effect in defense of the Texas frontier. In fact, one of Hays' men, Samuel H. Walker, made some suggestions for improving the pistol that Colt carried out. The new weapon, which against bows and arrows or single-shot weapons was the frontier equivalent of a nuclear bomb, was called the Walker Colt. In 1842, Walker and another former Ranger, Big Foot Wallace, took part in the ill-fated Mier Expedition, in which a group of Texans invaded Mexico. The Texans were captured and every tenth man was ordered executed.
much hope for him. That's why he was standing in this chicken line,
Doing a job that darn few people wanted.
In addition to all the rough treatment at home, it seems that Jesse was always sick. Sometimes it was real physical illness, but way too often it was all in his head.
He was a small child, skinny and meek. That sure didn't help the situation any. When he started to school, he was the object of every bully on the playground. He was a hypochondriac of the first order. For Jesse, tomorrow was not always something he looked forward to. But, he had dreams. He wanted to be a ventriloquist.
He found books on ventriloquism. He practiced with sock puppets and saved his hard earned dollars until he could get a real ventriloquist dummy.
When he got old enough, he joined the military. And even though many of his hypochondriac symptoms persisted, the military did recognize his talents and put him in the entertainment corp. That was when his world changed. He gained confidence. He found that he had a talent for making people laugh, and laugh so hard they often had tears in their eyes. Yes, little Jesse had found himself.
The fate of the prisoners was determined in a drawing. Those who drew white beans lived; a black bean meant death. Walker drew a white bean. So did Wallace. In 1846, within a year of Texas' admission as the 28th state of the Union, the United States and Mexico were at war. Walker joined one of several Ranger companies that were mustered into federal service to function as scouts. The Rangers fought with such ferocity in the war that they came to be called "Los Diablos Tejanos"--the Texas Devils. The luck Walker had after Mier did not hold. He was killed in the fighting.
In his memoirs, Ford later described the kind of men who served under him as Rangers:
“A large proportion...were unmarried. A few of them drank intoxicating liquors. Still, it was a company of sober and brave men. They knew their duty and they did it. While in a town they made no braggadocio demonstration. They did not gallop through the streets, shoot, and yell. They had a specie of moral discipline which developed moral courage. They did right because it was right."
For the next decade after the Mexican War, the Rangers existed primarily as volunteer companies, raised when the need arose and disbanded when their work was done.
One of the best known Rangers of this period was John S. "Rip" Ford, whose nickname stood for "Rest in Peace." Ford--medical doctor, newspaper editor, and politician--lived up to his nickname in 1859, when Juan Nepomuceno Cortina took over the border city of Brownsville. The bandit had in mind retaking, in the name of Mexico, all of Texas below the Nueces River. The Texas government saw it differently, and dispatched Ford and a company of Rangers to mitigate the matter.
You know, folks, the history books are full of people who overcame a handicap to go on and make a success of themselves, but Jesse is one of the few I know of who didn't overcome it. Instead he used his paranoia to make a million dollars, and become one of the best-loved characters of all time in doing it! Yes, that little paranoid hypochondriac, who transferred his nervousness into a successful career, still holds the record for the most Emmy's given in a single category. The wonderful, gifted, talented, and nervous comedian who brought us Barney Fife was Jesse Don Knotts.
NOW YOU KNOW, "THE REST OF THE STORY" There is a street named for him and his statue in Morgantown, West Virginia, his place of birth.

Once there was a little boy that lived in the country.
They had to use an outhouse, and the little boy hated it because it was hot in the summer and cold in the winter and stank all the time. The outhouse was sitting on the bank of a creek and the boy determined that one day he would push that outhouse into the creek.
One day after a spring rain, the creek was swollen so the little boy decided today was the day to push the outhouse into the creek. So he got a large stick and started pushing. Finally, the outhouse toppled into the creek and floated away.
That night his dad told him they were going to the woodshed after supper. Knowing that meant a spanking, the little boy asked why. The dad replied, "Someone pushed the

Spring Concert on Saturday, May 20th –
By the second half of the decade, the biggest threat to Texas was lawless Texans. In 1874 the Legislature created two Ranger forces to cope with the situation--the Frontier Battalion, led by Major John B. Jones and an organization called the Special Force under Captain Leander McNelly. Captain McNelly did not like a lot of paperwork. Witness his report below:
In five years time, the Rangers were involved in some of the most celebrated cases in the history of the Old West. Much of the fact that would later be mixed with Ranger legend occurred during this turbulent period.
Texas' deadliest outlaw, John Wesley Hardin, a preacher's son reputed to have killed 31 men, was captured in Florida by Ranger John B. Armstrong. After Armstrong, his long-barreled Colt .45 in hand, boarded the train Hardin and four companions were on, the outlaw shouted: "Texas, by God!" and drew his own pistol. When it was over, one of Hardin's friends was dead. Hardin had been knocked out cold, and his three surviving friends were staring at Armstrong's pistol. A neat round hole pierced Armstrong's hat, but he was uninjured.
Hardin served a lengthy prison sentence, only to die in a shoot-out in El Paso in 1896 shortly after his release. Another well-known Texas outlaw who had a run-in with Texas Rangers did not make it to prison. Train robber Sam Bass, who had been in Texas since 1870, was confronted by four Rangers in Round Rock in the summer of 1878. In the shoot-out that followed, one of Bass' gang was killed outright. Bass
Reminders for Escondido Chamber –
Preserving Law and Order
In the 1890s, Rangers preserved law and order in Big Bend mining towns, tracked down train robbers and even were called on to prevent an illegal prize-fight from taking place on Texas soil. The promoters of the storied Fitzsimmons-Maher bout finally had to settle for staging the boxing match on an island in the Rio Grande.

throughout the state." Ranger Captains picked their own men, who had to furnish their own horses and could dress as they choose. They did not even have a standard badge.
And on the title page of Paine's 1909 book on McDonald are 19 words labeled as Captain McDonald's creed: "No man in the wrong can stand up against a fellow that's in the right and keeps on a-comin." Those words have evolved into the Ranger creed. Adjutant General W. H. Mabry wrote of the Rangers in his 1896 report to the Legislature that "This branch of the service has been very active and has done incalculable good in policing the sparsely settled sections of the state where the local officers...could not afford adequate protection." As the turn of the century approached, the reputation of the Ranger as the person required to take care of a situation beyond the means of local law enforcement was well established.
Going back to the time when the original Rangers came into being, Author Robert M. Utley offers the controversial view that the original Texas Rangers were probably much akin to those folks who today make up Blackwater. He says, for example: One Riot, One Ranger
The law authorized four Ranger companies of a maximum of 20 men each. The career of Company "B" Captain W. J. McDonald, and a book written about him, added much to the Ranger legend, including two of its most famous sayings. The often cited "One Riot, One Ranger" appears to be based on several statements attributed to Captain McDonald by Albert Bigelow
Captain Bill MacDonald
In 1900, the Frontier Battalion faded along with the frontier; but by July, 1901, the Legislature passed a new law concerning the Ranger service. The force, to be organized by the governor, was created "for the purpose of protecting the frontier against marauding or thieving parties, and for the suppression of lawlessness and crime
"Motives for enlisting in early Ranger units didn't include pay. Although usually promised, it was almost never forthcoming. To protect family and property, to punish the enemy, or the sheer love of adventure afforded motives. But there was one powerful motive almost never mentioned. That motive was plunder.”

The Paper • Page 4 • May 18, 2017 Fatal Injuries in Escondido Pursuit and Crash
On May 11, 2017, at about 00:16 AM, an Escondido Police Officer attempted to stop a silver PT Cruiser in the area of Midway and Grand Avenue for an equipment violation. The driver stopped momentarily at the curb. Before approaching, the officer saw the rear windows of the vehicle roll down. The officer did not approach and attempted to verbally direct the occupants from his vehicle. After only a few seconds, the driver fled at a high rate of speed west bound on Grand Avenue. The officer initiated a vehicle pursuit which continued west on Grand Avenue toward Rose Street. The vehicle reached speeds of 80 miles per hour in the 1500 block of East Grand Avenue. The PT cruiser gained distance on the officer as it crested the hill east of Ohio. The officer momentarily lost sight of the vehicle as it went over the hill. As the officer crested the hill, he discovered the PT Cruiser had collided with a group of parked vehicles on the north curb line of Grand Avenue just west of Ohio. The entire vehicle pursuit lasted under one minute. Officers discovered there were two males and two females in the vehicle. One male was ejected on impact and died at the scene. Another female was removed from the vehicle and later pronounced dead at the scene. Life saving measures were attempted by Escondido fire personnel and police officers. The names of the deceased will be released by the coroner’s office after next of kin have been notified.
The remaining two occupants were transported to local hospitals where they are listed in serious but stable condition.
All four occupants were between 18 and 21 years old and residents of Escondido and Vista. The occupant’s seating position in the vehicle is still under investigation. Based on the officer’s statements and physical evidence at the scene it appears the PT Cruiser crested the hill west bound on Grand Avenue in the 1200 block. The driver lost control and rear ended a parked Chevrolet S10 pickup on the north side of Grand Avenue. The S10 and several other parked vehicles sustained major damage. The PT Cruiser flipped upside down and came to rest on its roof. Alcohol / drug impairment and the reason for the pursuit is unknown at this time. The investigation is ongoing and is being conducted by Officer Steve Braucht of the Traffic Division. We are seeking the public’s help with anyone who may have witnessed the accident or has other information that would benefit the investigation.

tain order, and always hang “whites” with “whites,” and hang them first.
3. You never hung a shirt by the shoulders, always by the tail! What would the neighbors think?
4. Wash day on a Monday! Never hang clothes on the weekend, or Sunday, for Heaven’s sake! 5. Hang the sheets and towels on the outside lines so you could hide your “unmentionables” in the middle (perverts & busybodies, y’know!).

Clothes Line History . . .
I remember the clotheslines stretched all across the backyard at our house in Omaha. And boy, did the clothes smell good when my Mom brought them in - especially, fresh sheets on the bed at night. In the winter the lines were strung all over the basement, but never smelled as good and took a lot longer to dry!
You have to be a certain age to appreciate this. THE BASIC RULES FOR CLOTHESLINES:
(If you don’t know what clotheslines are, better skip this.)
1. You had to wash the clothes line before hanging any clothes–walk the entire lengths of each line with a damp cloth around the lines. 2. You had to hang the clothes in a cer-
6. It didn’t matter if it was sub zero weather…clothes would “freeze-dry.”
7. Always gather the clothes pins when taking down dry clothes! Pins left on the lines were “tacky!” 8. If you were efficient, you would line the clothes up so that each item did not need two clothes pins, but shared one of the clothes pins with the next washed item.
9. Clothes off of the line before dinner time, neatly folded in the clothes basket, and ready to be ironed. 10. IRONED? Well, that’s a whole other subject! A CLOTHESLINE POEM
A clothesline was a news forecast To neighbors passing by, There were no secrets you could keep When clothes were hung to dry. It also was a friendly link For neighbors always knew, If company had stopped on by To spend a night or two.
I-15 and SR-78 travelers can expect increased traffic delays around the college areas. While the increase in traffic congestion is familiar to city residents, students and commuters alike, the City of San Marcos is pleased to report that continued relief is on the way.
In the city’s ongoing efforts to get motorists moving and improve traffic flow, several roadway improvement projects are lined up over the next five years.
Planned projects include upgrades to the Traffic Management Center (TMC)’s server and software, traffic signal equipment, as well as communication lines between the TMC and the traffic signals. In addition to improved staff and equipment response times to changing traffic conditions, these enhancements will allow traffic signals to handle more complex intersection configuration conditions. During graduation season and periods of roadway construction, drive with caution and provide ample time to reach your destination safely and on time.

If wash was dingy and gray, As neighbors carefully raised their brows, And looked the other way. But clotheslines now are of the past, For dryers make work much less. Now what goes on inside a home Is anybody’s guess!

I had a family member in hospital over Mother’s Day and was struck by a beautiful little girl, maybe 6 years old, who got on the elevator with a bouquet of flowers. “Are those for Me?” I asked.
She smiled and shook her head “no.”
“Wait a minute,” sez me. “I bet mommy is in the hospital and you’re bringing those flowers ‘cause it’s Mother’s Day!” She smiled and nodded yes.
“Well, I’ll tell you young lady, mommy is gonna be really, really happy to get those flowers . . . but she’s gonna be even happier because you came to see her. You are the greatest gift she should get on Mother’s Day.” And I was right. Almost always am. Notice I said, “almost.”

Indian villages yielded spoils, especially horses,” he said. Those motivating attacks on any Indians, deserved or not, sometimes resulted in unseemly quarrels over division of the plunder and a reluctance to return to owners stock or other stolen property, says Utley.
While Mr. Utley is stepping on wellbooted toes there is some historical evidence to suggest that the Texas Rangers were not always the one wearing totally white hats. There was a time, early in its history, when an entire company of Rangers were dismissed for exceeding and abusing their authority. This event goes back to a time when circumstances were such that the Rangers found themselves up against men in the wrong as always, but some of the law enforcement problems these officers confronted were as new as the century itself.
historians who have studied the period agree there was some dilution of quality. After one Ranger raid into Mexico, an entire company was dismissed as they had been found to have exceeded and abused their authority. Texas was growing up--the Rangers were part of the state's civil authority, and had to learn to do their work within the framework of the law, no matter the necessary liberties some of their predecessors had taken in earlier years . . . which brings in the parallel drawn to today’s Blackwater crew. They, too, are highly trained in the use of weaponry they, too, are recognized as outstanding fighters, and are often called upon to defeat forces larger than their own . . . but in recent years, allegations have been made that they, too, have exceeded and/or abused their authority.
Since the days of the Mexican War, Rangers had occasional work to do along the long, meandering Rio Grande, but the emphasis on the river increased in 1910 with the outbreak of revolution in Mexico. Generally easy to ford, the Rio Grande had never been much more than a symbolic boundary. Some of the violence associated with the political upheaval in Mexico crossed the river into Texas.
On several occasions, Mexican bandits raided into Texas. And at least twice, Rangers returned the favor, making punitive strikes into Mexico. In one battle in 1917, as many as 20 Mexicans may have been killed by Rangers who crossed to the south side of the river. During this time, the Ranger force was as large as it ever was in its history, and
Whether Congress reins in Blackwater as state legislators did with the early Texas Rangers remains to be seen.
In spite of the occasional black eye, the Texas Rangers largely have a clean, and honorable, reputation. So much so that it is a highly sought after position.
Not just anyone can be a Texas Ranger. For every position that opens up you usually have a minimum of 100 applicants from the Texas Department of Public Safety who would love the job. Texas Ranger PR folks will point out that the myth of Rangers shooting first and asking questions later has been largely dispelled. They claim they seldom shoot nowadays except at the range.
Texas was in a state of transition, and so were the Rangers. Rangers still rode the river on horseback, but they also used cars. The automobile was taking over as the principal mode of transportation in Texas and the rest of the country. Frank Hamer
One of the best-known Rangers who made the transition from horse to car was Frank H. Hamer. He first joined the Rangers in 1906. By 1921, he was Captain of Ranger Company "C", stationed in Del Rio. At the beginning of 1922, he was transferred to Austin, where he would spend the next decade as a Ranger Captain. One of the major problems facing the Rangers during Hamer's tenure as Senior Ranger Captain was bank robbery. The situation got so bad the Texas Bankers Association offered a standing $5,000 reward for bank robbers. There was one catch--the money would be paid for dead robbers only.
As the Depression took hold in Texas, unscrupulous types began setting up phony holdups, hiring men to rob a bank and then killing them in the act so the reward money could be collected. This was a situation the Rangers could not solve with force. Instead, Hamer went to the press, exposing what was happening. Hamer's move paid off--the banking association's reward policy was changed.
The Texas Senate eventually created a state law enforcement agency to be known as the Department of Public Safety. This creation merged the Texas Rangers and the Highway Patrol into a Public Safety Department that, essentially, formed a single state police force. On August 10, 1935, it became effective.
Under the new DPS, the Ranger force would consist of 36 men. Though smaller than it had been in years, the Texas Rangers would have for the first time in its history the benefits of a state-of-the-art crime laboratory, improved communications, and, perhaps most importantly, political stability. In name, the Rangers were 100 years old. With the creation of the DPS, the Rangers would have professionalism to match their tradition. Tom Hickman, a veteran Ranger, was named Senior Captain of the Rangers. The force was organized into five companies, each headed by a captain.
Fingerprint and modus operandi files were available for Ranger use and Ranger vehicles were equipped with police radio receivers, though two-way radio would not be available to Rangers until the 1940s. They also had

the benefit of chemical ballistic and microscopic testing in their criminal investigations.
In their early years as part of the DPS, Rangers were furnished a Colt .45 and a lever action Winchester .30 caliber rifle by the state. Rangers had to provide their own car, horse, and saddle, though the DPS issued horse trailers and paid automobile mileage. For the first time, Rangers had the benefits of in-service training. Weekly activity reports of their activities were required. The Texas Rangers were part of another agency, but their duties essentially were the same as they had been for years. Rangers were called upon to enforce the state's laws, with particular emphasis on felony crimes, gambling and narcotics. Rangers also were used in riot suppression and in locating fugitives. By 1945, the authorized strength of the Texas Rangers had been increased to 45 men. Two years later, the force was increased again, to 51 men. In their first year under the DPS, the Rangers took part in an estimated 255 cases; two decades later, in 1955, the Rangers were involved in 16,701 cases. Keeping the Peace
Rangers continued to add to their legend during the 1950s. When inmates in the Rusk State Hospital for the Criminally Insane rioted and took hostages, Ranger Captain R. A. "Bob" Crowder walked into the maximum security unit armed only with the .45 on his hip. Crowder and the leader of the mob had a conversation and the inmates surrendered. Rangers made national headlines by their quiet but firm presence at various campuses in the state as school integration was for the most part peacefully implemented. When violence seemed possible at the high school in Mansfield, Rangers were sent to the school. A photograph of Ranger Sergeant Jay Banks, reflectively leaning against a tree in front of the high school as students walked into the building beneath a dummy hanging in effigy, was widely published.
Also during the 1950s, Rangers calmed down a violent steel mill strike in East Texas; shut down illegal gambling in Galveston and participated in numerous cases, some sensational, many merely routine investigations.
This was Ranger Zeno Smith's report for July 3, 1956: "Wilson County Sheriff requested the assistance of one Ranger in the investigation of twentyfive head of cattle near Floresville. A lengthy investigation resulted in the filing of five complaints and indictments
in each case against the suspect who is still at large. 115 hours."
With a population of 20 million, Texas has only 107 Rangers. Fourteen are Mexican-Americans and six are African-Americans. Two Rangers are female: Marrie Garcia, based in San Antonio, and Christina Nix in Waco. Twenty-eight are college graduates, and three have master's degrees. College credit hours average 81. Average age has dipped from 50 in the 1970s to near 40 today. Ranger Sgt. Leo Hickman refuses to retire. He's 73. Today's Rangers are detectives. In fiscal 1997-1998, Rangers handled 5,205 investigations that led to 829 felony and 130 misdemeanor arrests.
As of 2007 the size of the Ranger increased to 116 commissioned members. These Rangers are supervised by a Senior Captain, Captain, Assistant Commander, six field captains and seven lieutenants. The force is organized into six companies, "A" through "F," and a Headquarters office in Austin and an Unsolved Crimes Investigation Team in San Antonio. Other Rangers are stationed in various towns and cities in the state, each Ranger having responsibility for a minimum of two to three counties, some with even larger areas. Highpowered sniper rifles, night vision scopes, tear gas guns and grenades and gas masks are available for each Ranger company. Black lights, used for detecting fluid traces on clothing and other items, also are available at the company level. Sophisticated electronic surveillance equipment is at the disposal of the Rangers as well. Today's Rangers travel by car, airplane or helicopter and occasionally by horse. Rangers are not issued uniforms, they dress as they need to. A Ranger in Dallas might wear a suit and tie while a Ranger assigned to a rural area would likely choose Western wear. During normal everyday activity, Rangers are still expected to wear western boots and have their badges pinned to their shirts.
The clock is ticking
This year over 2,800 bills, an excessive number in my view, were introduced in Sacramento. Many have a fiscal impact, which means they must be referred to the Appropriations Committee, the last stop for fiscal bills before they are presented to the full Assembly or Senate for a final floor vote. With so many bills to consider, the Appropriations Committee Chair and Vice Chair often agree to refer non-controversial bills costing under $150,000 to the consent calendar so that passage can be expedited. All others will be placed on the Appropriations Suspense File, so that they can be reviewed more thoroughly by the committee. Even bills with overwhelming bi-partisan support sometimes fail to pass Appropriations, which has become known as a place good bills go to die. May 26, the final day for
Appropriations to report a bill to the floor is rapidly approaching, which means there is a lot of nail biting going on right now in Sacramento. Other looming deadlines include June 2, the date bills must pass their house of origin in order to be considered by the alternate house, June 15, the deadline for passage of a balanced budget for the 20172018 fiscal year, and September 15, the day we finally adjourn for the year and the last day to approve all legislation. Bills that arenâ€™t finalized this year may become two-year bills, which can be considered early next year. Once we adjourn, Governor Brown will have a month to sign or veto all bills. In the end, the fate of legislation approved by the combined votes of 80 Assemblymembers and 40 Senators will depend on one man and his veto pen, Governor Jerry Brown.

The Paper • Page 7 • May 18, 2017 The World of Dentistry
Like you, I’ve been reading and hearing about implants . . . that magic that dentists do to restore lost teeth. It just gets more and more amazing what medicine and dentistry can do these days.
To look a little deeper into the subject I decided to go and have a chat with “the man.” The go-to guy for things involving dentistry who knows all about the latest in the science and artistry of the dental world.
In spite of the long, hard hours, Dr. Greg Hurt, is the always smiling dentist who tackles any dental problem . . . even the more challenging ones.
Dr. Gregory Hurt, explaining a dental procedure to a patient
This guy, born in Iowa, raised all over the planet (his dad was an air force pilot who ultimately rose to the rank of General), outstanding student, outstanding athlete . . . decided to become a dentist. Lots of guys and gals go to dental school . . . and then they develop a nice practice and live happily ever after.
That wasn’t enough for Greg Hurt. He not only wanted to become a dentist but wanted to establish a top notch dental center that was up on all the latest in dentistry. And he did it.
He opened the San Marcos Dental Center and then staffed it with top professionals, not just dentists, but dental technicians, top office staff that knows everything about insurance, billing, coding, all that needs to be done to ensure a patient gets nothing but the best. Long after graduating from dental school, Dr. Hurt is a regular student in continuing education. He has a veritable thirst for knowledge - and then he puts that knowledge and training into use for the benefit of his patients. He has seven staff members that make up the San Marcos Dental Center . . . in addition to himself and his colleague, Dr. Shepherd. She does general dentistry as well as focuses on orthodontia . . . an area in which she excels. Dr. Hurt does all implants and surgery as well as orthodontia and general dentistry.
Technical advances now allow dentists to replace missing teeth or teeth that were badly damaged in an accident . . . probably the most popular technique is the use of
It’s a fairly simple procedure for the patient but a highly technical procedure for the dentist, requiring specialized training, the knowledge of the various options that are available for each patient, and which option would be best for an individual patient. Dr. Hurt is familiar with, and has performed, all of the various options available and/or necessary for a top implant procedure. Procedures are tailored to the individual patient.
Dr. Hurt’s highly trained office staff helps the patient(s) file the proper medical and dental claim forms to maximize insurance coverage benefits, leaving the patient and Drs. Hurt and/or Shepherd free to focus on fixing the dental problem and not worrying about the billing.
His staff knows how to code insurance claims properly to maximize your return/coverage. Training is an ongoing thing with both Drs. as well as their staff. For example, Charleen, a young Vietnamese girl, is working toward her certification as an orthodontic technician. She made a journey to Vietnam for 10 days to serve as a volunteer with a dental clinic so that she might help Vietnamese patients in need. A very devoted and religous young lady, she went as part of her church mission and paid her own way. Ana, another staff members, is also working toward her certification as an orthodontic assistant.
As Dr. Hurt and Dr. Shepherd have embraced education and training, so, too, do they encourage their staff to learn all they can to beneift themselves as well as their patients. San Marcos Dental Center, 162 S. Rancho Santa Fe Rd 760.734.4311.
Historically Speaking by Tom Morrow
Three Funny Men I Have Interviewed
Of all the many celebrities I have interviewed during my 40-plus years of writing, three comedians stand out: Jack Carter, Henny Youngman, and Milton Berle. Jack Carter Jack Carter, born June 24, 1922, was a comedian, actor and television personality. Brooklyn-born Carter had a longrunning comedy act similar to fellow rapid-paced contemporary Milton Berle.
In 1984, I’m sitting in the Pacific Southwest Airlines waiting area to catch a flight from San Diego to Los Angeles when I realized a very familiar face was sitting alongside. He was frantically searching his pockets for something.
“Buddy, can ya spare a dime?” he asked me. It was famed stand-up comedian Jack Carter. Luckily I did have a dime. He took the coin over to a pay telephone and made a call. When he returned it was time for the flight to board. “C’mon kid, you’re my valet,” he quickly told me as he faked a “limp” toward the gate. He went up to the agent and informed her I was needed to help him board the plane. I went along with it. We were boarded along with the women and children and had our pick of seats. It was small talk over the next hour, but big in my memory. Carter hosted an early television variety program called “Cavalcade of Stars” on the old DuMont Network. He was lured to NBC to host his own program titled The Jack Carter Show. He made dozens of appearnces on “The Ed Sullivan Show.” Carter died on June 28, 2015.
Henny Youngman Henry "Henny" Youngman was born March 16, 1906. He was a comedian and violinist famous for his mastery of the "one-liner." He was best-known for the one-liner: "Take my wife ... please."
In a time when many comedians told elaborate anecdotes, Youngman's routine consisted of telling simple one-liners, occasionally with interludes of violin playing. These depicted simple, cartoon-like situations. A couple of example different. “So, she went to a furrier who does his own breeding. He crossed
a mink with a gorilla. She got a beautiful coat, only the sleeves are too long.” (tah dump bump).
Youngman’s inoffensive, friendly style of comedy kept his audiences laughing for decades. During my interview with him, I asked how many jokes he had amassed over the years? “Millions,” he replied. I then asked if he was afraid other comedians would steal them? “Only as long as Berle’s alive,” he quipped. (They were close friends). Yo u n g m a n died Feb. 24, 1998. H e bequeathed a collection of 6 million jokes to the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C.
Milton Berle Milton Berle, born on July 12, 1908, was a vaudeville-style comedian and actor. As the host of NBC's “Texaco Star Theater” (1948-55), he was the first major American television star and was known to millions of viewers as "Mr. Television." Because of his huge popularity, he sold more TV sets than anyone else. His show caused TV set sales nationally to double to more than 2 million.
In Detroit, an investigation took place when the water levels took a drastic drop in the city’s reservoirs on Tuesday nights between 9 and 9:05. It turned out that everyone waited until the end of Berle’s “Texaco Star Theatre” before going to the bathroom.
He earned another nickname after ending a 1949 broadcast with a brief adlibbed remark to children watching the show: "Listen to your Uncle Miltie and go to bed." Berle risked his newfound TV stardom at its zenith to challenge Texaco when the sponsor tried to prevent black performers f r o m appearing on his show, such as the famed “Step B ro t h e r s ” dance quartet. Berle refused and broke the so-called color barrier. I interviewed Berle in 1979 for a frontpage feature in the old Escondido Times-Advocate. Later, at a cigar dinner in 1994, I chatted with him briefly, reminding him of our interview 15 years earlier, adding “you probably don’t remember me.” He quickly quipped, “Of course I do … now, what was your name?”
A notable note: When he was at the height of his popularity at NBC, the network gave Berle a “lifetime” contract for $1 million a year. Ironically, shortly thereafter, his star began to fade, but he got his money every year until his death, which was March 27, 2002. Tom Morrow's books are available at Amazon.com in soft-cover or via Kindle E-mail.

outhouse into the creek today. It was you, wasn't it son?"
The boy answered yes. Then he thought a moment and said, "Dad, I read in school today that George Washington chopped down a cherry tree and didn't get into trouble because he told the truth." The dad replied, "Well, son, George Washington's father wasn't in the cherry tree." ••••• The Morality of Dishonesty
A few years ago in a small town robbers entered a bank and one of them shouted: "Don't move! The money belongs to the bank. Your lives belong to you.” Immediately all the people in the bank laid on the floor quietly and without panic. This is an example of how the correct wording of a sentence can make everyone change their world view.
One woman lay on the floor in a provocative manner. The robber approached her saying, “Ma’am, this is a robbery not a rape. Please behave accordingly." This is an example of how to behave professionally, and focus on the goal. While running from the bank the young robber (who had a college degree) said to the older robber (who barely finished elementary school): "Hey, maybe we should count how much we stole."
The older man replied: "Don’t be stupid. It's a lot of money so let's wait for the news to be told how much money was taken from the bank."
This is an example of how life experience is more important than a degree.
After the robbery, the manager of the bank said to his accountant: "Let's call the cops."
The accountant said: "Wait, before we do that let's add the $800,000 to the robbery of that we took to ourselves a few months ago and just say that it was stolen." This is an example of taking advantage of an opportunity.
The following day it was reported in the news that the bank was robbed in of $3 million. The robbers counted the money, but they found only $1 million so they started to grumble. "We risked our lives for $1 million, while the bank's management robbed two million dollars without blinking? Maybe its better to learn how to work the system, instead of being a simple robber.
This is an example of how knowledge can be more useful than power
Moral :Give a person a gun, and he can rob a bank. Give a person a bank, and he can rob everyone. ••••• In extreme situations, Nuns have been known to sometimes utter an obscenity -- but it's very rare and usu-

8. What was the President's Name in 1975?
I recently had occasion to drive from my home in Escondido to Hollywood in Los Angeles on a Saturday. I left at noon, anticipating a two and a half hour drive for one hundred miles. Instead, I was in the car for nearly five hours. My first stop was two miles from my home at Albertson’s on East Valley Parkway. I could not find a parking spot so I left without buying the snacks I hoped to have

I expected traffic in Los Angeles but I was surprised to find my worst traffic experience before even leaving North County.It took me twenty five minutes to get from Escondido to San Marcos where I stopped at Nothing Bundt Cakes. The simple act of getting off the 78, onto San Marcos Blvd., and back again added thirty minutes to my drive time. his haystacks, they all become one big one.

Several hours later, somewhere on the I-5, I had an idea. Why not create a road reservation system to better manage capacity? If you anticipate non-work related driving, reserve your route and wait for an appointment time when an acceptable number of vehicles suitable to the capacity of the road would be allowed. This way you could more easily predict travel time to your destination – or we could just keep doing what we are doing.

The Pastor Says . . . together to pray.
If you felt you were perfect, you probably would not feel the need to pray. Come just as you are, Prayer is, in part, seeking His help. Just be sincere.

Pastor Sam Brumit Mission 316 San Marcos, Ca. Prayer is not as hard as you think
One of the topics I am often asked about through the years is prayer. It's really not surprising since communicating with God can seem ... well ... intimidating. Here are some things I've learned over the years that you might identify with. 1. You don't have to be a spiritual giant to pray. After all, God knows us ... all about us. He understands us and we don't have to pretend with Him that we are something we are not. Just be yourself. He gets it. Just talk to Him. 2. You don't have to have it all
3. The times you feel least like praying are the times you might need to most. Besides, when we don't know how to pray, it is then the Holy Spirit is there to intercede for us. 4. Be honest when you pray.
Share with God what's on your heart. Don't try to cover it up. He sees where you are and can handle your emotions. His shoulders are broad. 5. Don't use fancy words.
God is not impressed with our vocabulary. Just let your requests be made known to him. You don't have to be a professional!
Finally, pray! He wants to hear from you ... just like we want to hear from our kids. Pray about everything ... large and small. He hears.

Projects Relieve Traffic Congestion
The City's construction work to widen southbound Civic Center Drive between the railroad tracks and Phillips Street is now finished. A third southbound "through-lane" has been constructed to accommodate vehicles moving into the right-turn to westbound Highway 78. Adding the through-lane reduces the frequency of traffic back-ups between Phillips Street and Lado de Loma Drive, even at peak commuting hours. Last fall, the City Council approved a Traffic Congestion Management plan outlining projects designed to provide further traffic congestion relief. The Civic Center Widening project is one of improvements categorized as short term projects in the plan and following are a

Traffic Signal Interconnect Upgrade in northern Vista to existing traffic signals for optimized traffic signal timing and coordination. 4. E.

Maybe this sounds a bit corny but our 22 years as a small business has taught us that your business and personal lives must harmonize or neither one will work very well. Your personal relationship with the people inside and outside of the business must be consistent. We grew up in rural Indiana and learned how to get along with people from our parents, schools, churches and friends and neighbors. The formula is pretty simple. Accept everyone at face value, don’t judge, assume everyone wants to be your friend and of course there is mother of all guidelines “The Golden Rule.” Folks who live by these principals, rich or poor, are happy people. Folks who don’t live by these principals, rich or poor, are generally not happy people. So, if we want to be happy, how could it not be right to apply these principles to business, especially a small business where you deal with friends and neighbors every day. Actually we don’t know any other way. The way it works in our business is that we listen to understand what our customer needs and then we use our knowledge to by the Friends of San Marcos Parks and Recreation will be available for those 21 years and older.

Operation Rebound with the Challenged Athlete’s Foundation. Marcolongo served 14 years as a United States Marine, and is a veteran of the Iraq conflict. He is dedicated to serving the rehabilitative needs of our troops and is leading the effort to mentor and provide post-rehabilitation support to American service members who have suffered permanent physical injuries in recent conflicts.

McElvenny graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy and served 8 years in the Marine Corps. In 2011, on his third tour of duty in the Middle East, he stepped on an IED, suffering the loss of his right leg below the knee. Thanks to Operation Outbound and McElvenny’s determination, he raced in his first two triathlons just 6 months after taking his first post surgery steps.

The will and any codicils are available for examination in the file kept by the court. The petition requests authority to administer the estate under the Independent Administration of Estates Act.

The independent administration authority will be granted unless an interested person files an objection to the petition and shows good cause why the court should not grant the authority. A hearing on the petition will be held in this court as follows: Date: 6/15/2017 Time: 1:30 p.m. Dept: PC2 Address of court: Same as noted above. If you object to the granting of the petition, you should appear at the hearing and state your objections or file written objections with the court before the hearing. Your appearance may be in person or by your attorney. If you are a creditor or a contingent creditor of the decedent, you must file your claim with the court and mail a copy to the personal representative appointed by the court within the later of either (1) four months from the date of first issuance of letters to a general personal representative, as defined in Section 58(b) of the California Probate Code, or (2) 60 days from the date of mailing or personal delivery to you of a notice under section 9052 of the California Probate Code. Other California statues and legal authority may affect your rights as a creditor. You may want to consult with an attorney knowledgeable in California law. You may examine the file kept by the court. If you are a peson interested in the estate, you may file with the court a Request for Special Notice (form DE-154) of the filing of an inventory and appraisal of estate assets or of any petition or account as provided in Probate Code section 1250. A Request for Special Notice form is available from the court clerk. Attorney for petioner: Daniel F.
