Another Record Python!

By Harry Dismuke

In 1953 I was flying as a crew member in Military Air Transport Service (MATS). Stationed in Hawaii we had the pleasure of flying to Tokyo, Manila or to Travis AFB in California on regular bases. About twice a month they would chose one of these colorful spots for us to visit with the agreement that we deliver and pick up either people or cargo. What a deal. We usually had about a day and a half to two days lay-over to exploit the The Paper - 760.747.7119

best we could. I’m sorry to say I wasted some of those days in those wild drinking establishments but not all. Occasionally there would come up a special flight to a different location. I must say I got more than my share of these. Sometimes it would be Bangkok or Karachi, sometimes it was Fiji or Australia. This was tough duty and I had to endure this for 24 short months. This special trip was to Wake Island. Comparing this destination with all the

others, this was one I could pass up and not feel badly about it. Lucky for the free world I was not in charge and they requested my cooperation and I went.

Being only 21 years old I’m sorry but I didn’t know much about this little atoll. Once seeing it, I could not see much future for it as a resort either. Unbeknownst to me The Pan American Airways in 1935 started a refueling station there for their China Clipper. However, I was somewhat

aware that a heroic yet unsuccessful defense was put up by the U. S. Marines In Dec. of 1941 the Japanese overwhelmed them to take the Island.

After flying at over 9000 ft. and coming down to a South Pacific island, the first thing that hit me was the heat and humidity. In those days we flew the Navy R5D (C-54) transport and so we had the full effect of no pressurization. Some of those flight were 1215 hours long so fatigue was a

What do we do on small islands?

You have two choices of what to do, go to the beer hall or go to the beach. Luckily we chose the latter. What a beach, anyway you went, you would run into a beach. A fellow crew member and I started out for the northwest part of the island. It was the most remote, with no one else around. We could see the bow of a ship sticking out of the water. The closer we got to it we guessed it to be maybe 150 yards out from the beach. The water was a welcome relief from the heat. After horsing around trying to see who was the best swimmer, our eyes and conversation would always return to the ship. What could be on it? Any dead bodies still on board? We didn’t know what country it belonged to. After bragging what a good swimmers we both were, I said “I would challenge you to swim out to the ship but I was afraid you couldn’t make it.” That was all it took. We were on our way. Once over the

Yogi Berra accepted an honorary degree from St. Louis University and delivered the commencement speech for 1,900 graduates and 10,000 in attendance at Scottrade Center

Yogi doesn't so much command the English language as he corkscrews it. It is part of what makes the baseball Hall of Famer and pride of the Hill one of America 's endearing figures.

So here is, in its entirety, Yogi's dissertation:

"Thank you all for being here tonight. I know this is a busy time of year, and if you weren't here, you could probably be somewhere else. I especially want to thank the administration at St. Louis University for making this day necessary. It is an honor to receive this honorary degree.

breakers the water was not choppy but we encountered large swells. We made it to the ship, but we could not find a way to get on board. One way was to swim around to the far side and come in from the top of the ship or we could climb up the anchor chain. We were tired of swimming so up the chain we went. The ship was wedged into the coral reef and was hanging about 45 degrees. About half the ship had broken off. What a picture that was setting on top of the bow looking down at the rest of the ship as it met the water line just past the bridge. The coral could be seen on which the ship was wedged. Very beautiful light blue colored water. Then the color went deep dark blue where it dropped off. Descending down that 45 degrees slope it took a little agility until we got to the deck ladders. We found that it was a Japanese transport Sowu Maru.

were spotted by two American Subs. The sub named, “USS Tunny” shot two torpedoes. One hit Bay #4 and one hit in Bay #5, both were in the rear of the ship. No ship can stay afloat with this much damage. They were going to sink. The captain rammed his ship into the coral along the shore. He tried to save as many lives as he could.

The ship was an older passenger transport of Japan. In April, 1943,it was loaded with supplies and people to be delivered to three islands in the Pacific. The last one was Wake Island, the most distant of all. They knew this was a very dangerous trip. Luckily they made it all the way safely.

The latest news is that the rest of the ship has fallen off the coral reef.

Louis and to visit the old neighborhood. I haven't been back since the last time I was here. Everything looks the same, only different. Of course, things in the past are never as they used to be. Before I speak, I have something I'd like to say. As you may know, I never went to college, or high school for that matter. To be honest, I'm not much of a public speaker, so I will try to keep this short as long as I can. As I look out upon all of the young people here tonight, there are a number of words of wisdom I might depart. But I think the most irrelevant piece of advice I can pass along is this:

The most important things in life are the things that are least important.

I could have gone a number of directions in my life. Growing up on the Hill, I could have opened a restaurant or a bakery. But the more time I spent in places like that, the less time I wanted to spend there. I knew that if I wanted to play baseball, I was going to have to play baseball. My childhood friend, Joe Garagiola , also became a big-league ballplayer, as did my son, Dale I think you'll find the similarities in our careers are quite different.

You're probably wondering, how does a kid from the Hill become a New York Yankee and get in the Hall of Fame? Well, let me tell you something, if it was easy nobody would do it. Nothing is impossible until you make it pos-

Another American sub USS Finback, spotted it and fired a torpedo into its bow just before it rammed the coral.

On board were 1,091 people. They were scurrying for their lives. Miraculously only 14 people were killed.

This was April 5th,1943. Among the people that had sailed on this ship in its glory days, was Charlie Chaplin and Admiral Yamamoto. I visited the ship in 1953. It was a half ship then, because the back half had broken off.

We continue with the on-board story We could go up the ladder all the way to the bridge and once you’re there you could see the mess made by sailors scrambling for their lives. The life sible.

Of course, times were different. To be honest, I was born at an early age. Things are much more confiscated now. It seems like a nickel ain't worth a dime anymore. But let me tell you, if the world was perfect, it wouldn't be. Even Napoleon had his Watergate.

You'll make some wrong mistakes along the way, but only the wrong survive. Never put off until tomorrow what you can't do today. Denial isn't just a river in Europe Strive for success and remember you won't get what you want unless you want what you get. Some will choose a different path. If they don't want to come along, you can't stop them. Remember, none are so kind as those who will not see.

Keep the faith and follow the Commandments: Do not covet thy neighbor's wife, unless she has nothing else to wear. Treat others before you treat yourself. As Franklin Eleanor Roosevelt once said, 'The only thing you have to fear is beer itself.' Hold on to your integrity, ladies and gentlemen. It's the one thing you really need to have; if you don't have it, that's why you need it. Work hard to reach your goals, and if you can't reach them, use a ladder. There may come a day when you get hurt and have to miss work. Don't worry, it won't hurt to miss work. Over the years, I have realized that baseball is really just a

jacket bin was empty and trash was everywhere. There were books, maps, newspapers, letters scattered everywhere. The showers, the bunks and decks were all made of wood. The wooden beds had rotten sheets over straw. I found an empty sake bottle under a straw mattress with cork still in it. On the bottom deck, at least as for as we could go down, we could see the most beautiful collection of fish swimming within the ship below us. We could only wish we could have taken a picture of it. From the largest to the very smallest they seemed to enjoy their hideaway. Working our way back up the deck was not so easy as sliding down. At the top again we took final look at that dark blue-black water in the ship and wondered if anybody could have survived. Climbing down the anchor chain and the swim back to the beach we were very quiet. We were tired and it was getting late. We headed back to the base. The next morning we were set to take off back to Hawaii and while we were checking our manifest, we told a local officer what we did the day

menopause for life. We all have limitations, but we also know limitation is the greatest form of flattery. Beauty is in the eyes of Jim Holder Half the lies you hear won't be true, and half the things you say, you won't ever say.

As parents you'll want to give your children all the things you didn't have. But don't buy them an encyclopedia, make them walk to school like you did. Teach them to have respect for others, especially the police. They are not here to create disorder, they are here to preserve it. Throughout my career, I found good things always came in pairs of three. There will be times when you are an overwhelming underdog. Give 100 percent to everything you do, and when that's not enough, give everything you have left 'Winning isn't everything, but it's better than rheumatism.' I think Guy Lombardo said that. Finally, dear graduates and friends, cherish this moment; it is a memory you will never forget. You have your entire future ahead of you. Good luck and Bob's speed." ••••

He shot back, “You before. damn fools! That beach is off limits. No one is to swim there because we have had trouble with sharks out there. They hang around there because of the abundance of fish.” I swear this to be 95% true Harry Dismuke

There is an added story I must tell:

Pan American Airways set up Wake Island before the war for a refueling station for the China Clipper. At the time of the Jappaness invasion the men were given arms to help defend the island. They all pitched in to help. After the Japs took over they rounded up the Pan American employees and marched them to the north west side of the island. They lined them all up in a row and shot all of them.

This story was over looked a long time until somone noticed carvings on a rock and by cleaning it off there were letters stating I think 91 men were killed here and the date. A fatally wounded man found the strength to carve this information on a rock. And it is still there.

I am a member of Boy Scout Troop 619 and want to know when the troop began. Answer: The first Boy Scout troop in Valley Center was organized in 1937 with 14 members. It was sponsored by The Grange, a community agricultural organization which supported multiple local groups. There also was a Valley Center Girl Scouts chapter whose start date has not been determined; however, it is mentioned in a 1952 newspaper story.

I know there have been a lot of celebrities and movie stars who have lived here, but who was the first? Answer: Actor-dancer Fred Astaire was a youth when his parents would visit family friends at their adobe ranch home on Valley Center Road. In 1933, the local family moved and Astaire, by then an up-and-coming vaudeville star, purchased the property. For many years, he and his wife and children lived here and raised horses, one a prize winner. Other celebrities took up roots here and in Pauma Valley, but it is not believed that any movie stars moved here because of fellow actors. Only John Wayne and Randolph Scott were known to be acquaintances. The historic Astaire adobe home remains a private residence. Does the street called The Yellow Brick Road have any connection to the movie, "The Wizard of Oz"? Answer: The origin and meaning of local street names is one of the most frequently asked questions of the Historical Society, and this is one of the favorites. No, there is no connection between the two. In the early 1970s, Charles Staadecker purchased a 17-acre farm on a dirt road with no name. He asked the County if he could give the street that whimsical name, and it was approved. Over the years, streets that intersect with The Yellow Brick Road have been named Wizard Way, Ozland Drive, Emerald City Drive and Dorothy Lane. Coincidentally, actor Jack Haley who played the Tin Man in the 1939 film lived nearby, and MGM producer Sam Zimbalist, who was responsible for an earlier version of "Oz" was a longtime resident of Fruitvale Road.

The Paper • Page 4 • May 21, 2020 Oceanside Pedestrian Dies After Being Struck by Car

On Wednesday May 13, at approximately 8:45 pm, the Oceanside Police Department responded to a collision involving a vehicle and pedestrian at 4147 Oceanside Blvd. Upon arrival, officers located an unresponsive female lying in the eastbound lanes. Life saving measures were immediately performed by the officers on scene followed by Oceanside Paramedics. The unidentified female was transported to the hospital where she was later pronounced deceased.

Based on physical evidence at the scene, and the statement of the driver involved, it appears that the female was crossing Oceanside Blvd. legally south to north at a break in the road. The 22-year-old male driver was traveling eastbound on Oceanside Blvd. when he noticed the pedestrian and tried to swerve to avoid the collision. Following the collision, the driver remained on scene and was cooperative with police. Neither alcohol nor drugs were a factor in this collision however, distracted driving was a possible factor. The decedent has not been identified at this time. The investigation is ongoing. The Oceanside Police Department’s Major Accident Investigation Team is conducting the investigation. Anyone with information regarding this collision is asked to call Accident Investigator David Paul at

They bought BBQ ribs, beans, salads, soft drinks . . . and we provided the apartment, dining room table, and talkative table partners (us). Good food, lots of great conversation, and lots of laughs.

Oceanside City Councilman Responds to Critics within Oceanside Police Officer’s Association

First and foremost, I would like to personally thank OPOA, sworn and unsworn, for your faithful service to our city. I firmly believe that Oceanside Police are the finest in our state and a balanced example of both servant and protector.

We find ourselves in precarious times and unchartered territory across our state. From one County to the next there is differing health directives with varying interpretations and enforcement practices, making it extremely difficult to be a police officer. Many County Sheriffs and Police Chiefs like neighboring Riverside County Sheriff Chad Bianco refuse to make criminals out of law-abiding business owners exercising their constitutional rights to provide for their families.

Hundreds of thousands flow through local Walmart’s, grocery stores, and gas stations purchasing a variety of “essential and nonessential” goods and services daily, requiring little to no police involvement and enforcement. Meanwhile businesses and employees deemed non-essential have been publicly scrutinized with heavy police enforcement action for just trying to survive.

view of the mighty Pacific Ocean.

During the late afternoon, early evening hours, there were lots of surfers out, only moderate size waves but they clearly enjoyed them . . . lots of strollers on the boardwalk fronting the ocean, some walking their dogs, some holding hands with a special someone, a few joggers . . . just a lot of nice people enjoying Carlsbad and its beaches. After dark we were able to witness the bioluminescence . . but it wasn’t as bright as I expected it to be.

After a pleasant night’s sleep we greeted a somewhat foggy and overcast beach . . but by around 11 am the sun had come out and it was another glorious Carlsbad day. I remember thinking at one point, “given a choice, why would anyone want to live anywhere except Carlsbad?” I didn’t have an answer.

Lots of folks have had those very same thoughts and that’s why real estate prices are sky high in Carlsbad. Supply and demand. A simple one bedroom cottage, without a garage, and a tiny front and back yard will still command $750,000. And you go up from there. Amazing prices for the privilege of living in Carlsbad.

The heart of my letter addressed to the people of Oceanside on May 9th 2020, was not about defiance, it was about survival. Oceanside’s hurting and businesses have no other choice but to operate and survive, before it’s too late. I encourage us all to lead with empathy during this time of economic struggle. While Oceanside police officers receive a well-deserved paycheck and pension, Oceanside residents can’t even afford to pay their rent and health insurance. Each day that passes, multiple Oceanside businesses permanently close and the wealth of a generation diminishes. I’m calling for Oceanside Police Chief McCoy, County Sheriff Gore and all San Diego County law enforcement officers to prioritize the survival of San Diego County residents and their God given freedoms to work and provide for those they love. I call on you to publicly refuse to discriminate between who’s life, job and business is deemed essential.

We headed home, arriving in Escondido about 1pm. “Well,” sez me, “we sure can tell we’re back in Escondido.”

The traditional warm weather was here to welcome us. Quite a quick change artist, that temperature is. We came back Saturday as we have this newspaper to finish up, have proofed, and make ready for the printer. Kind of interferes with the full enjoyment of the beach . . but we have readers that count on us and advertisers who like to get their message out to our readers.

All appeared to be fine . . . then Saturday afternoon my keyboard went dead on me. I’m a technical klutz so was in a bit of a panic mode. Fortunately, my youngest son, Kenny, knows about these things. “Dad,” he said. “You need new batteries. AAA. 99% of the time that’s the probelm.” Off I went to the store to purchse new batteries and install same. Kenny was right. The keyboard roared back to life and I was able to jump back in and finish this week’s edition.

Grand Canyon Cont. from Page 3

Grand Canyon. This was not your usual trail. We planned to go down to the Havasupai Indian r e s e r v a tion at the bottom and camp there for two days. Backpacking in and out with full gear. The Havasupai Indians are one of the last tribes to hold on to their old traditions. They live off the land as much as they can. They still use some of the old weapons and kill animals and eat most of them however, the g o v e r n ment does help them a lot.

They are a proud people but they still get their mail every day at 2 P. M. via a burro. They were v e r y friendly to us. We had to pay three dollars each and an extra .50 cents per camera.

Our instructions to get there was to take old route 66 to Peach Springs, Az. Go seven miles past the town to a dirt road to the left and then go fifty miles straight to the “Top of Hill”. This is what the Indians called it. It was a view of the beautiful Grand Canyon. We were at 7000ft. and with commanding view.

Open for Business?

Governor Newsom's May Revise budget projection for the coming Fiscal Year shows that the $21 billion surplus we had has become a $54 billion deficit in our state budget! The economic activity that generates tax revenues supporting state programs has collapsed because of Covid-19. We are now in a serious recession, with unemployment levels greater than those of the Great Depression. It is imperative that we safely open up our economy to reduce the hit on our economic outlook and help Californians recover.

I’ve joined a group of western state leaders asking the federal government to provide funding to help make up this shortfall and support public safety, local governments, schools, hospitals and Medi-Cal. Unlike the federal government, California cannot print its own money. State tax revenues have decreased, while the demand for state services, including unemployment insurance, has increased exponentially.

Safety is essential. We’ve learned a lot over the past months, and protocols like social distancing have

Our instructions were to call them, on the telephone nailed to a pole, for permission to come down. They cleared us to come on down. Unloading the cars and putting on o u r back packs we start on our way down a very steep trail. When we drove thru Peach Springs we picked up some Kentucky Fried Chicken. We planned to eat it on the trail going down. We were scoffing it down like crazy when a group was coming up. They were drooling over the smell of KFC. All the leaders were thinking how tough this would be coming back up this trail. The rest of the way to the village was level. Arriving at the village at dusk with enough light to meet the chief and get our camp site located.

It was only two years before that they got a compressor and a generator for the v i l lage, thanks to the U. S. government. Before that it was torches and no lights or refrigeration. They had one store and a few other shacks made up the village.

To our surprise there was a movie that night. We all wanted to go. The movie must have been made in the thirties. We sat on wooden boxes, plas-

allowed essential businesses to remain open. Thousands of customers safely visit local big boxstores each week; there’s no reason those same protocols can’t be used by smaller businesses with far fewer customers.

A regional approach is best as local county health authorities should make the call. Many businesses have learned to think outside the box, and they should be given the chance to open safely. We’ve been saying we’re all in this together, but in thousands of cases, small businesses have been forced to carry the heaviest burden.

From public safety (fire season is upon us) to education, from highway funding and Medi-Cal to programs for the elderly, the disabled and handicapped, all state programs are facing disastrous cuts. The social costs of allowing our shutdown to become a depression are incalculable. By using caution and the lessons we’ve all learned, California’s economy can safely reopen.

tic buckets and logs. The screen was about 6 ft. by 6 ft. wide and a forgettable story, but we stood it as long as we could before we went to bed.

The first day we took off for the water falls on the Havasu River. This was the first o f three falls on this river. This water fall dropped about 45 ft. The beautiful part was t h e wonderful color of the water. A very clear blue-green is the best way I can describe it. A few hundred feet down the hill we came to the next water fall. This 80 ft. drop was very beautiful. The last one was the most spectacular. This was the Mooney Falls. One hundred twenty five foot drop. This one had round pools at the bottom and about five foot in diameter and about 4 foot deep. The kids had a ball in this one. Care had to be taken near the falls because the water coming down hard 125 ft. drop was dangerous. Some of us did not bring our swim trunks but, no problem. We spent the whole day at these water falls. Its a good thing we brought our lunches and goodies because it was a long day. The next day we planned to hike five miles down to the Colorado River where the beautifully clear water flows into the muddy Colorado.

What a sight this was. Perfectly clear pure water forcing its self into this dirty water with a big loud roar. Occasionally a raft would go by and we would holler and yell at them but they were too busy hanging on to the raft to wave. We had to leave the next day so back to camp and pack up for an early start the next morning. We were all dreading climbing up that hill.

Next morning the boys wanted to stop at the only store in the village and load up with candy for the climb.

The trail did not get steep until we were at the base of the mountain. The weather was overcast but a mild temperature. About a third of the way up it started to rain. We were strung out along the trail about ¼ mile. Single file all the way up. That rain turn to snow about half way up the hill. We all made it up to the top. The ground and our c a r s were covered with snow. This was late June and to have a snow ball fight in the summer time was a real treat. The weather cleared up on the

San Diego County can stay safe AND be open for business. We proved it with the essential businesses being open, and flattening the curve AND trends at the same time.

We are a government of, for, and by the people. We the people of California, are facing the state’s new restrictions that hold our freedoms, our jobs and our economy hostage.

For non—compliance to an unattainable goal, he is threatening local governments, that attempt to get people back to work, with the loss of state tax funds (your dollars). He is threatening small businesses owners, who are only, trying to survive, by revoking previously earned, and certified, professional licenses. Not only did he move the goal posts – he tore them down.

For us to move beyond the current limited curbside business the governor’s new order requires San Diego county to have no, corona virus-related deaths for 14 consecutive days.

San Diego County, with a population of 3.3 million people, has little to no chance of achieving 14 consecutive

days with zero covid-related deaths. It is an impossible unobtainable hurdle that will stagnate any forward progress towards moving beyond curbside retail. In order to open businesses, we must continue to protect our most vulerable and abide by our public health officer’s personal protection orders of the masks, gloves, social distancing, and hand washing. We now have over 25% unemployment in San Diego County.

The people making the decisions to keep your businesses closed are all collecting their pay, pensions and health benefits.

We, the people, can stay healthy, abide by the personal protection requirements, AND be open for businesses. We the people have done what is asked of us:

We, not the government, flattened the curve. We, not the government, reduced the trend. We, not the governor, want to stay healthy AND see our economy thrive.

That’s a job. Somewhere, people are being paid to sit around, wracking their brains, trying to devise ways of limiting the amount of paper towel use in public washrooms.

Where do those new ideas come from? Who came up with the onesheet-at-a-time machine? Who invented the you-pull-on-the-paperbut-hardly-anything-comes-out apparatus? Whose idea was the hot air blower? Who invented linen towel loop? (That one’s disgusting.) Were these the best of hundreds of innovations for reducing paper towel use in public washrooms that never made the cut?

“When do you drink water?”

“I’ve never been that sick!” •••• One day God was looking down at earth and saw all of the rascally behaviour that was going on ... So He called His angels and sent one to earth for a time. When the angel returned, he told God, ‘Yes, it is bad on earth; 95% are misbehaving and only 5% are not.” God thought for a moment and said, 'Maybe I had better send down a second angel to get another opinion.'

Was He or Wasn’t He A Russian Spy?

In 1948, Alger Hiss was a U.S. State Department official who was accused of spying for the Soviet Union. Hiss had been a key official who was involved in the establishment of the United Nations.

So God called another angel and sent her to earth for a time. When the angel returned she went to God and said, 'Yes, it's true. The earth is in decline; 95% are misbehaving, but 5% are being good...' God was not pleased.

So He decided to e-mail the 5% who were good, because he wanted to encourage them, and give them a little something to help them keep going. Do you know what the e-mail said? Okay, I was just wondering, because I didn't get one either. •••• Redneck Vacations

Chuckles Cont. on Page 8

The Hiss story broke in the media on Aug. 3, 1948, when an admitted former U.S. Communist Party member, Whittaker Chambers, testified before the House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC). Chambers said Hiss had secretly been a communist while in federal service.

Hiss, born Nov. 11, 1904, categorically denied the charge when brought before the HUAC, but Chambers produced evidence indicating he and Hiss had been involved in espionage. A federal grand jury indicted Hiss on two counts of perjury. After a mistrial due to a hung jury, Hiss was tried a second time and in January 1950, was found guilty and received two concurrent five-year sentences, of which he eventually served three and a half years.

One HUAC member, Rep. Richard M. Nixon, (R-Calif), took advantage of the committee’s post World War II crusade to hunt down communists. Over the next five years the committee’s actions brought Nixon’s name into the public arena, helping vault him into the U.S. Senate and on to becoming vice president in 1952, and eventually into the White House.

Chambers said Hiss had been a communist since 1937, He repeated his allegation to the FBI. In September 1945, a Ukrainian cipher clerk stationed at the Soviet Embassy in Ottawa defected offering authorities evidence about a Soviet espionage network actively working to acquire nuclear weapons information. He said there was an official of the U.S. Secretary of State as being a Soviet agent.

FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover assumed the Soviet clerk was referring to Hiss who worked in the State Department and was an adviser to Sec. of State Dean Acheson. The FBI concluded “Alger” Hiss was the likely match. Hoover put a wiretap on Hiss's home phone and had him and his wife investigated and tailed for the next two years. In response to Chambers' accusations,

Hiss protested his innocence and insisted on appearing before HUAC to clear himself. Testifying on Aug. 5, 1948, Hiss denied having ever been a communist or having personally met Chambers. Under fire from President Truman and the press, HUAC was reluctant to proceed with its investigation against such a highly placed official. However, Congressman Nixon, who later described Hiss's demeanor that day as, "insolent," "condescending," and "insulting in the extreme," wanted to press on. With some reluctance, the Committee voted to make Nixon chairman of a sub-committee that would seek to determine who was lying – Chambers or Hiss.

Admitted being a one-time communist, Hiss claimed to have quit the Party in 1937, but he was indicted on two counts of perjury before the HUAC. Hiss's character witnesses at his first trial, which ended in a hung jury included such notables as future (1952 and 1956) Democratic presidential candidate Adlai Stevenson, along with Supreme Court Justices Felix Frankfurter, and Stanley Reed. The second trial found him guilty. Hiss received five years on each of the two counts to run concurrently. Secretary of State Dean Acheson reacted emotionally, affirming, "I do not intend to turn my back on Alger Hiss." The verdict was upheld by the United States Court of Appeals and the U.S. Supreme Court denied a request for appeal.

Two weeks after the Hiss verdict, U.S. Sen. Joseph McCarthy, (Rep, WI) launched his famous crusade against communism during a speech in Wheeling, W. Virginia.

Although he had been sentenced to five years, he served only three years and eight months in Federal prison. He was released on Nov. 27, 1954. He fought his perjury conviction, maintaining his innocence until his death from emphysema on Nov. 15, 1996, four days after his 92nd birthday. Those of Hiss’ friends and family still living continue to insist on his innocence. After the dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991, Hiss petitioned Russia to release any files on the Hiss case. In late 1992, Russian archivists reported no evidence Hiss ever engaged in espionage for the Soviet Union nor that he was ever a member of the Communist Party.

Ten years later, in 2003, a Russian intelligence official further reported Hiss did not have a relationship with the Soviets and was not implicated in spying, but in May 2009, a U.S. historian reported while researching the Soviet intelligence service he found two military files referred to Alger Hiss as "our agent.” So, was he, or wasn’t he?

Chuckles Continued from Page 7 funny story.

She gets the giggles.

Well, more than the giggles, she gets a fit of uncontrollable laughter.

I remember one day she read a joke at our Kiwanis Club . . . . I don't think she ever got totally through the joke, she was laughing so hard. The rest of the club had a great laugh . . . as much laughing at Evelyn's uncontrollable laughter as the joke itself. (It was the old chestnut about the rather large Vincent Van Gogh family . . . The brother who accidentally bleached all his clothes white ... Hue Gogh, The great-great-grandniece who wore a mini skirt and like to dance ...Go Gogh, The real obnoxious brother ... Please Gogh, The brother who ate prunes ... Gotta Gogh, (which I think is where she first started to crack up), The uncle who worked at a convenience store ... Stop N. Gogh . . . etc., etc." More recently, like yesterday, she started to describe how our new puppy, the Chug (Chihuahua/Pug mix) whom we call Cindy, went to the bathroom. The Humane

Society had clued us in on this but still . . . . "She had to go pee-pee so she (breaks into laughter) practically stood on her head (more laughter) and had her head on the ground (more laughter) her front paws balancing herself, (giggling) and her hind feet up in the air . . . (uproarious laughter) and that's how she pees!" [I have shortened the telling of this tale considerably due to time and space considerations. The above took a full three minutes, maybe more, to get through]. I smiled at the story and after she caught her breath . . . we went on to other things to talk about. I was afraid that she might next describe for me how our new pup went poopie and I'm not sure Evelyn would have survived telling the tale.

The new pup is a feisty little bitch. That sounds terrible to say, doesn't it? But it is a factual statement. She is a bitch (for those who are unaware, that is the proper term for a female dog). She is a bit feisty and has tried to become the Alpha dog . . . Trixie, to her credit, will play and play with Cindy . . . but when Cindy tries to take control, Trixie lets Cindy know right away that she, Trixie, is the Alpha dog.

Pet Parade

If Cindy persists, Trixie will pin her down, show her fangs, and growl, as if to say . . . "I guess you didn't get the message the first time. I'm the Alpha dog. Got it?"

Cindy has now gotten it. Trixie's the boss. But they still play beautifully together. They'll chase one another up and down the hallway, they'll wrestle. (Though I think Cindy may be a lesbian. She keeps trying to hump Trixie. This is likely due to the fact that Cindy was recently spayed and I suspect that has raised havoc with her hormones and she's trying to do something sexually, but she seems to have it backwards in that she is a bitch and not a male. Here, again, Trixie takes charge and lets Cindy know there will be none of that nonsense going on. Again, Cindy gets the message. She's persistent, however).

Some Random Thoughts during COVID 19

Given the last couple of months and the global pandemic we are all experiencing, I thought I’d share some random thoughts as a follower of Jesus Christ. 1. Life is fragile. We are all susceptible to illness, viruses and even death. A microorganism can wreak havoc with our plans. In reality, we make our plans but only God can direct our path. 2. When it comes to Crises like this, we are all the same. We let social, economic or cultural differences separate us but a virus can show us how much ALL of us need each other. Let’s stick together, not divide. 3. God is a refuge in the times

of storms. He is the source of true security. Those of faith or no belief all suffer trials. Believers rest in the peace God gives. God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, love and self-control (2 Tim. 1: 7). We can face any circumstance with His peace. 4. We should “do good” to our neighbor. With all the issues the virus has brought about (socially, economically, etc.) we should all seek to help those in need, now and later. John 13:13 says "By this all will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another." 5. There is hope of a world to come; in the meantime, persevere. Be optimistic. In the words of Robert Browning (speaking of the courageous optimist):

"One who never turned his back but marched breast forward, never doubted clouds would break, Never dreamed, though right were worsted, wrong would triumph, we fall to rise, are baffled to fight better, sleep to wake.”

Barbies or house. Boys played football in the yard and jumped their bikes with scrap wood ramps. We played baseball or softball at the local park every summer and swam in the river, the lake, or the creek . And when it rained and water filled the yard ditches we played in that. Staying in the house was a punishment and the only thing we knew about being "bored"? "You better find something to do before I find it for you!" Or sometime, go watch the grass grow. We ate what mom made for dinner or we ate nothing at all. There was no bottled water; we drank from the tap or the water hose (warm). We watched cartoons on Saturday mornings, and rode our bikes for hours and ran around in the woods. We weren't AFRAID OF ANYTHING. If someone had a fight, that's what it was and we were friends again later, if not SOONER. We played till dark, sunset was our curfew. School was mandatory and teachers were people who you could TRUST and respect. We said Please and Thank you, yes ma'am and no sir. We watched our MOUTHS around our Elders because ALL of our Aunts, Uncles, Grandpas and Grandmas AND our Parents Best Friends were also our "PARENTS" (they COULD & WOULD WHOOP Y'ALL!,) and you didn't want them Telling your PARENTS if you misbehaved.

These were the good ole days. Kids today will never know how it feels to be a real kid. I loved my childhood...! Kids these days will never understand how we grew up!

"You better pray that will come out of the carpet." 3. My mother taught me about TIME TRAVEL. "If you don't straighten up, I'm going to knock you into the middle of next week!" 4. My mother taught me LOGIC. "Because I said so, that's why." 5. My mother taught me MORE LOGIC . "If you fall out of that swing and break your neck, you're not going to the store with me." 6. My mother taught me FORESIGHT. "Make sure you wear clean underwear, in case you're in an accident." 7. My mother taught me IRONY. "Keep crying, and I'll give you something to cry about." 8. My mother taught me about the science of OSMOSIS . "Shut your mouth and eat your supper." 9. My mother taught me about CONTORTIONISM. "Will you look at that dirt on the back of your neck!" 10. My mother taught me about STAMINA .. "You'll sit there until all that spinach is gone." 11. My mother taught me about WEATHER. "This room of yours looks as if a tornado went through it." 12. My mother taught me about HYPOCRISY. "If I told you once, I've told you a million times. Don't exaggerate!" 13. My mother taught me the CIRCLE OF LIFE.

May 21, 2020

A Weekly Message from the Mayor of Your Community published in the belief that it is important for elected leaders to communicate with their constituents and that constituents have a means of hearing from their elected leaders.

San Marcos • Mayor Rebecca Jones

San Marcos extends temporary eviction moratorium

The City of San Marcos has extended its temporary eviction moratorium to June 30, 2020, to protect residential and commercial tenants from the possibility of eviction by reason of financial hardship caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The time period within which tenants need to provide written notice to their landlord that they have experienced a substantial decrease in their household or business income, or have experienced substantial out-of-pocket medical expenses, due to COVID-19 has been shortened to 7 days from the previous 30 day notice period, to be consistent with Governor Newsom’s Executive Order N-37-20.

For tenants, if there has been a substantial decrease in your household or business income caused by layoffs or significantly reduced hours, or if you have incurred substantial out-of-pocket medical expenses, and if the decrease in income and/or the medical expenses were caused by the COVID-19 outbreak, the City Council’s action temporarily prohibits your landlord from filing or pursuing an eviction action. This does not mean that you do not owe the rent to your landlord – it means that the rent will be deferred until after June 30,

Escondido • Mayor Paul “Mac” Mcnamara Greetings Escondido,

In case you are wondering, I have not put out a video message in the last two weeks on purpose. If you didn’t know, on the city website, I regularly do a short update on COVID 19 related issues. The reason I have not put one out is because there is a lot of confusion in the guidance we are receiving. To be more specific, the guidance has changed with frequency, and we’ve had to ask for a lot of clarification. I expect next week I will start again. Stay please check it out.

I have received a lot of emails about opening up the city. As you know we are still at the mercy of the county and state regarding guide lines for when the city can open and folks can return to work. We have kept pressure on both the county and state regarding the financial pain this has caused and how we need to find balance and get folks back to work. The city is also working hard on various modified-guidance scenarios that allow the city to open up. Stay informed, Be Kind, Remember your neighbor, and Stay safe! Semper Fi,

Mac, Paul P. McNamara Mayor of Escondido pmcnamara@escondido.org

Vista • Mayor Judy Ritter

Vista Focus: Recover y Efforts

Since the COVID-19 crisis, the City’s Economic Recovery Committee has been working on finding solutions for the immediate and mid and long-term needs of our community and businesses.

Staff is developing methods to support business owners when they reopen and when they do open, what that might look like for individual businesses - whether it’s masks, gloves, temperature checks, or other protocols designed to keep employees and customers safe. The long-term plan is to have measures in place to continue our economic successes and resilience in the “new normal” for our residents and businesses. Many businesses in Vista have shifted their business models to help in the crisis. COVID-19 has created a shift in our economy, our business structure, and our daily lives. But with proper planning and strategic decision-making, Vista will rise to the challenge and will recover and return to our previous successes. Oceanside - Mayor Peter Weiss

The City of Oceanside began construction of its Beachfront Improvement Project on April 3. Funded largely by a grant award of nearly $8 million from California Natural Resources, this exciting project remodels the 1930s era beach restroom to serve as a new Police Department Substation.

The project also includes a beach maintenance facility, two beach restroom facilities, sewer lift station, beach access improvements, and beach area parking improvements. These beachfront improvements are necessary to support the City’s tourism trade, which is key for Oceanside’s economic development strategy. Oceanside’s beachfront is the City’s primary tourism driver. A new, wider staircase will be built with a landscaped viewing area. Work will occur in phases, and is anticipated to take 18 months to complete.

Revitalizing the Oceanside beachfront will help improve economic stability for the community, and enhance the overall experience for those living, working, and visiting Oceanside’s waterfront area.

WHEREAS, this ordinance is exempt from review under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA; California Public Resources Code Section 2100 et seq.) and CEQA regulations (Title 14, California Code of Regulations Section 15000, et seq.) because this ordinance is covered by the general rule that CEQA applies only to projects that have the potential for causing a significant effect on the environment (Section 15061(b)(3)); NOW, THEREFORE, the City Council of the City of San Marcos, California, in accordance with the freedom afforded to charter cities generally, and by the Charter of the City of San Marcos specifically, does ordain as follows: Section 1.The foregoing recitals are true and correct and are incorporated herein as though set forth in full at this point. Section 2.Resolution 20097140 ratifying the local emergency declaration of the Emergency Services Director and declaring the existence of an ongoing local emergency related to COVID-19, and Ordinance No. 2020-1485 enacting a temporary moratorium on evictions due to nonpayment of rent for residential and commercial tenants impacted by the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), are each hereby incorporated into this Ordinance as if fully set forth herein.

Section 3.Pursuant to the authority prescribed by state law, including, but not limited to State Executive Order N-2820, State Executive Order N37-20, the San Marcos Municipal Code and the ongoing federal, state and local emergency, the City Council hereby extends the temporary moratorium imposed by Ordinance No. 2020-1485 on evictions of residential and commercial tenants for nonpayment of rent impacted by

the COVID-19 pandemic, modified in part (b), below to provide that from and after the date of this Ordinance, tenants are to notify landlords and document their claim within seven (7) days after the date that rent is due, rather than the thirty (30) day period effective from March 24, 2020 until the date of this Ordinance, to conform with State Executive Order N37-20, as follows: a. No landlord in the City shall evict a residential or commercial tenant who demonstrates both of the following:

1. the basis for eviction is nonpayment of rent arising out of a substantial decrease in household or business income (including but not limited to, a substantial decrease in household income caused by layoffs or a reduction in the number of compensable hours of work, or a substantial decrease in business income caused by a reduction in opening hours or consumer demand), or substantial out-of-pocket medical expenses; and

2. the decrease in household or business income or the out-of-pocket medical expenses described in subsection (a)(1) was caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. b. A landlord who knows that a residential or commercial tenant cannot pay some or all of the rent temporarily for the reasons set forth in Paragraph a, above, shall not serve a notice pursuant to Code of Civil Procedure section 1161(2), file or prosecute an unlawful detainer action based on a 3day pay or quit notice, or otherwise seek to evict for nonpayment of rent. A landlord knows of a residential or commercial tenant’s inability to pay rent within the meaning of this Ordinance if the residential or commercial tenant, within seven (7) days after the date that rent is due, notifies the landlord in writing of lost income and inability to pay full rent due to financial impacts related to COVID-19 and provides documentation to support the claim. For purposes of this Ordinance, “in writing” includes email or text communications to a landlord or landlord’s representative or agent with whom the tenant has previously corresponded by email or text. Any medical or financial information provided to the landlord shall be held in confidence and only used for evaluating the residential or commercial tenant’s claim. Section 4.This Ordinance applies to nonpayment eviction notices and unlawful detainer actions for residential and commercial tenants based on such notices, served or filed on or after the date on which a local emergency was proclaimed (March 16, 2020).

Section 5.Nothing in this Ordinance shall relieve a tenant of the obligation to pay rent, nor restrict a landlord’s ability to recover rent due, including any late fees imposed by an underlying rental agreement. This Ordinance shall be punishable as set forth in San Marcos Municipal Code section 1.14.030 and any other applicable section. In addition, this Ordinance grants a defense in the event that an unlawful detainer action is commenced in violation of this Ordinance.

Section 6.Unless extended by City Council, this Ordinance shall remain in effect until close of business on June 30, 2020.

Section 7.This is not a project within the meaning of Section 15378 of the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) Guidelines because there is no potential for it to result in a physical change in the environment, either directly or indirectly. In the event this Ordinance is found to be subject to CEQA, it is exempt from CEQA pursuant to the exemption contained in CEQA Guidelines Section 15061(b)(3) because it can be seen with certainty that there is no possibility of a significant effect on the environment. Section 8.If any section, sentence, clause or phrase of this Ordinance is determined to be invalid, illegal or unconstitutional by a decision or order of any court or agency of competent jurisdiction, then such decision or order will not affect the validity and enforceability of the remaining portions of this Ordinance. The City Council declares that it would have passed and adopted the Ordinance, and each section, sentence, clause or phrase thereof, regardless of the fact that any one or more sections, subsections, sentences, clauses, or phrases be declared invalid or unconstitutional. Section 9.Pursuant to Government Code section 36937, this Ordinance shall be effective immediately upon its adoption. Within fifteen (15) days following its adoption, the City Clerk shall certify to the passage of this Ordinance and cause the same to be published, or the title thereof as a summary, in accordance with the provisions of State law in a newspaper of general circulation designated for legal notices publication in the City of San Marcos. PASSED, APPROVED AND ADOPTED at a regular meeting of the City Council of the City of San Marcos, California, held on the 12th day of May, 2020, by the following roll call vote: AYES: COUNCILMEMBERS: JENKINS, NUÑEZ, PETREK, WALTON, JONES NOES: C O U N C I L M E M BERS: NONE ABSENT: C O U N C I L M E M BERS: NONE

In addition to these added demands, many business and civic organizations are still open with full or skeleton staff. We’ve had to scramble a bit to keep up with the demand but it’s a great feeling knowing how important our work is to our business and home customers in these unusual and not so pleasant times.

In addition to providing repairs and upgrades to existing PCs, we also fill the expanded demand for “connected” notebook, desktop and AllIn-One PCs. In the past 12 months, because of the end of support for Win7 in January, corporations, governments and schools have replaced millions of high quality “enterprise” grade Win7 PCs with new Win10 PCs. The replaced “enterprise refurbs,” (Dell, HP and Lenovo) are typically as fast and capable as the PCs that replaced them. We upgrade these “refurbs” to Win10 and thoroughly test them. They are then available for resale in a basic configuration or upgraded with more RAM or larger hard drives or SSDs. We stock the entire performance range of notebook, tower and AIO PCs. For example, let’s say you need a basic PC at home for school or work. We have Win10 desktop and tower PCs with 4GB of RAM, 500GB hard drive, an Office suite,
