Escondido, in San Diego’s North County, is home sweet home to well over 150,000 people who enjoy many of America’s premier tourist attractions in or near Escondido, California. And, surprisingly, Escondido has been the home of some of the most notable people in the country. For example, Tom Anderson (co-founder of My Space), and Sean Salisbury (former ESPN anchorman and former NFL quarterback) who was a graduate of Orange Glen High School, as well as one of history’s pivotal figures, Sam Brannan (California’s first millionaire). In regards to Sam Brannan (1819-1889), he was an undisputed mover-and-shaker in California’s history. After the murder of Mormon church leader, Joseph Smith, in June of 1844, Brannan and other members of the Latter Day Saints (Mormons) moved to northern California.
Brannan lived a most colorful life. He was an American settler, businessman, journalist, and prominent Mormon who founded the California Star newspaper in 1847, the first newspaper in San Francisco, California. It was only the second newspaper in all of California, following The Californian (1846 in Monterey, and re-started later in San Francisco). Also, Brannan is considered the first to publicize the California Gold Rush in 1848 via his newspaper. His personal life declined sharply after his wife divorced him and he was forced to liquidate much of his real estate in order to pay her one-half of his total financial assets. He was never the same man after his divorce; a shell of his former self. After the divorce devastated him – both emotionally and financially – he became a brewer and, ironically, became addicted to his own alcohol. Forsaking San Francisco, the very city he helped develop, Brannan drifted south to San Diego and remarried. He became a permanent resident of Escondido, deciding to drift no more. His life in history books read of an amazing man, a visionary, who went from modest dollars to millionaire in a short span of time. Slowly, his finances and assets dwindled, relegating him to die poor and forgotten in Escondido, his final chosen place of residency.
For many of our readers of The Paper who live in various states and as far away as the eastern seaboard, these California historical insights are of genuine interest (especially for those who frequently vacation here throughout the year).
The historical ledger of prominent people who have lived in Escondido covers a wide spectrum and their variety of importance is most intriguing and surprising. Even famous scientists have called Escondido home, such as Robert Klark Graham (1906-1997), eugenicist, inventor, and founder of the worldfamous Repository for Germinal Choice (Nobel Prize Sperm Bank). Dr. Graham

conceived and created his controversial Nobel Prize Sperm Bank from his Escondido ranch in the late 1970s. The one-time Escondido resident made millions by developing shatter-proof plastic eyeglass lenses. Also, Dr. Harold F. Blum (1899-1980), gained global prominence as the physiologist who first explored sunlight-induced skin cancer. The much celebrated medical pioneer, Dr. Blum, was born on February 12, 1899, right here in Escondido, California. And if all of this were not enough, Escondido has been the home to a multitude of famous sports figures, such as Eric Weddle (#32 of the San Diego Chargers and currently playing for the Baltimore Ravens with his same number #32). When Weddle was asked to name
his favorite Escondido restaurant he didn’t pause one bit, “Mi Guadalajara in Escondido is one of my family’s favorites.” Wow! Just think, Eric Weddle and I have a lot in common! No, I don’t play professional football! At 126 pounds a strong gust of wind would blow me through the goal posts. The only ‘Eric and Friedrich’ similarity is a much less dramatic one: I also love eating at Mi Guadalajara restaurant in Escondido. For those readers outside of California who make frequent vacation stops here in Escondido, be sure to try Charlie’s Family Restaurant located on 210 N. Ivy Street or you can just call for directions at (760) 738-1545. Owner, Charlie Mitich, is a delicious story all by himself. Born abroad, when he first wished to become an American citizen, Mitich made the journey to Germany and
joined the U.S. Army in 1957. How’s that for ingenuity? After serving a 5year hitch in such varied places as Alaska and Alabama, Mitich received his citizenship and moved his family to Escondido in 1963 and he’s been here ever since! Charlie’s restaurant gets consistently high ratings in Yelp and also in reviews from Trip Advisor, a source many incoming tourists listen to. To our collective good fortune, Charles Mitich left his Macedonian roots and staked claim here where Escondido residents love to eat his American family-style meals. It’s truly an amazing odyssey in life that Mitich started as a fry cook at Escondido’s Wagon Wheel restaurant and, then, two years later bought the restaurant lock stock and barrel! Mitich’s family were the first handful of

Macedonians to come to this North San Diego County we call Escondido. No longer owner of the Wagon Wheel Restaurant, Mitich took ownership of today’s highly-popular homespun eatery known simply as “Charlie’s Family Restaurant.” Mitich soon became acquainted with the many Serbian chicken farmers in the area who had fled from Eastern Europe earlier in the century. Despite speaking slightly different languages, Macedonians and Serbians still can understand each other’s native languages. Charlie Mitich is a true Horatio Alger story in the flesh! From common man to successful business owner, Charlie Mitich, truly embodies the American Dream. Another fine eating establishment for all you readers to discover is “The Steakhouse at Jalapeno Grill & Cantina” at 503 W. Grand Avenue in Escondido. Owner, Ray Alto, is a Native American of the Kumeyaay Nation, the original inhabitants of San Diego County. His popular eating establishment can be reached for directions at (760) 233-1104.
Escondido sports figures who lived in Escondido are Randy Johnson (major league baseball infielder for the Oakland A’s) and a graduate of Escondido High School; Gavvy Cravath (former right fielder for the Philadelphia Phillies baseball team), and George Horine (1890–1948) who held the world’s record in the high jump while only a sophomore when he competed at the NCAA meet. The great George Horine is considered an early pioneer in the techniques of high jumping and competed in the 1912 Summer Olympics at Stockholm, Sweden, where he won a

If you ever feel a bit stupid, remember the following statements and you'll begin to think you're a genius. On September 17, 1994, Alabama's Heather Whitestone was selected as Miss America 1995 - she was asked: “If you could live forever, would you and why?”
She answered: "I would not live forever, because we should not live forever, because if we were supposed to live forever, then we would live forever, but we cannot live forever, which is why I would not live forever,"

bronze medal for the United States. Horine was born in Escondido, and his historic journey from Escondido to the world stage is immortalized in the annals of sports.
In the realm of film notables, Hollywood movie actor, Richard Denning (1914–1998), best known for starring in a number of science fiction and horror films of the 1950s, such as “The Creature from the Black Lagoon” in 1954, later made his mark in such film classics as “An Affair to Remember,” (1957) starring Cary Grant. Richard Denning, who was once a resident of Escondido, played the fictitious governor of Hawaii (Paul Jameson) on the original CBS crime drama, Hawaii Five-O television hit series (1968-1980), starring Jack Lord.
Legendary radio host, and current Escondido resident, Doug Best, who is an aficionado of swing, blues, and the Big Band Sound, is most certainly aware of the fact that the great band leader and arranger, Ray Conniff (1916-2002), also called Escondido, home sweet home. The Massachusetts gift to music, Ray Conniff, became an international giant with some of his musical genius going platinum and winning the coveted Grammy Award. Conniff ’s music was a worldwide hit, drawing a staunch fan base that pervaded Europe, Australia, and even Japan! In 1979, Conniff was hired to re-arrange and record new versions of “Those Were The Days,” and “Remembering You” which became the opening and closing themes of television’s blockbuster hit series, “All in The Family,” starring Carroll O’Connor. What a surprise! Just imagine, all this time you had heard Ray Conniff ’s music, but just never knew it. So, the next time you watch a re-run of “All in The Family,” you’re hearing pure Conniff!

Almost 57 years after the release of his immortal “Christmas with Conniff ” (1959), and two years after his death, Ray Conniff was posthumously awarded a platinum album/CD. (On a side note: Ray Conniff was among my dad’s favorite bandleaders and composers. Along with such instrumentals as “In the Mood” with the Glenn Miller Orchestra, and Bunny Berigan’s “I Can’t Get Started.”) the music of Ray Conniff always set my dad’s toes to tapping!) Ray Conniff died in Escondido on October 12, 2002 at age 85 from a fall he suffered in his bathroom. He never ceased recording and performing to his last days. Only the hand of death stopped him. Conniff sold over 70 million albums worldwide, an astonishing achievement for its era. His grave marker bears a musical score with the first four notes of the biggest hit song he ever had in his career: “Somewhere My Love” (1966) (originally composed by Maurice Jarre). The great Ray Conniff forever loved Escondido, where he chose to spend his golden years.
Famous bodybuilder and film actor, Steve Reeves (1926-2000), resided in Escondido. Reeves was the famous actor who portrayed Hercules (1957) in the movie of the same name, as well as its sequel, “Hercules Unchained” (1959). Reeves was ranked as the number-one box office draw in twenty-five countries around the world! He also won the Mr. Universe title in 1950. Unfortunately, Reeves turned down some of the most popular movies in history. For example, he turned down the role of James Bond in the movie “Dr. No” (1962), and also the role that eventually went to Clint Eastwood in the worldwide box office hit, “A Fistful of Dollars” (1964). On May 1, 2000, George Reeves died from a blood clot after having surgery

Two Polish hunters named Stosh and Thad, hired a pilot to fly them into the Canadian wilderness, where they managed to bag two big Bull Moose. As they were loading the plane to return, the pilot said the plane could take only the hunters, their gear and one Moose.
The hunters objected, saying, "Last year we shot two, and the pilot let us take them both...and he had exactly the same airplane as yours." Reluctantly the pilot, not wanting to be outdone by another bush pilot, gave in and everything was loaded.
two days earlier. He passed away at Palomar Hospital in Escondido, California. There are numerous other celebrities, sports figures, inventors, scientists, et al, who were either born, or chose to live, in the North County city of Escondido – the list is so extensive that it is impossible to reproduce here.
Today, Escondido is still quite a remarkable place to visit or become a resident. There are many other incentives that entice people to settle down in this exciting North San Diego County region. On many levels it is world famous. Nearby is the world-famous Palomar Mountain State Park which has captured the attention of scientists who study the Earth’s natural environment, physical composition and structure. Palomar Mountain State Park has inspired and moved leading geoscientists, geographers, and geologists to remark: “It is like having a piece of the Sierras in your own back yard.” Upon these Palomar Mountain surroundings sits the worldrenowned 200-inch Hale Telescope at the Palomar Observatory. It was the largest optical telescope in the entire world from its completion date in 1948 until 1976. It is used by international scientists and astronomers in trying to find clues to the creation of our universe and has proven successful in discovering distant objects out in deep space, including stars and thousands of asteroids. The Palomar Observatory’s Hale Telescope has captured the attention of the general public to the point that it is a vastly popular tourist attraction, today. It is open to the public during the day and visitors can take self-guided tours of

However, even under full power, the little plane couldn't handle the load, and went down, crashing in the wooded wilderness.
Somehow, surrounded by the moose, clothing and sleeping bags, Stosh and Thad survived the crash. After climbing out of the wreckage, Thad asked Stosh, "Any idea where we are?"
Stosh replied, "I think we're pretty close to where we crashed last year." Reflections

As already mentioned, the Palomar Mountain Observatory and Hale telescope have proven, time and again, to be of enormous interest to the general public. Herewith, are some “knock-your-socksoff ” trivia about the famed mountain site and its nonstop growing popularity. (A) In 1994, Palomar was mentioned in the first television episode of Season Two of “The X-Files.” The airing of this particular episode on the enormously popular “The X-Files” sparked renewed popularity and pilgrimages to Palomar Mountain! (B) The popular Canadian band, The Rheostatics, released a 1992 CD with the song, “Palomar.” The lyrics tell a touching story of a man on Palomar Mountain and his relationship with his best friend, a dog. (C) The band, Wellwater Conspiracy’s 1997 debut album, “Declaration of Conformity,” contains an instrumental called, “Palomar Observatory.” Wellwater Conspiracy singer and drummer, Matt Cameron, grew up in this northern region near the observatory, itself!

Spanish word meaning “hidden.” Some sources say the name originally referred to agua escondida or hidden water, and yet another source says it meant “hidden treasure.” The very first inhabitants of Escondido were indigenous tribes, of the Luiseno group. These Native Americans called this land (now known as Escondido) “Mehel-om-pom-pavo.” The Diegueno (aka Kumeyaay) tribes called the region “Eskondiid,” which more closely resembles Escondido’s present name.
It is truly amazing how we can grow up in the Escondido area and still not know about the fabulous treasures of fact and enormously important details that lie all around us. Such a stellar example is our very own San Diego Safari Park (formerly known as the “Wild Animal Park”), located near the city of Escondido, in the San Pasqual Valley. This park is visited by over 2-million people every year. Aside from many well-known attractions within the park, such as Tiger Trail, Hidden Jungle, Lion Camp, Condor Ridge, Nairobi Village and Gorilla Forest, there are some exhilarating attractions still not widely known. Here are some examples:

The San Diego Safari Park also offers a most unique experience -- actual sleepovers within the park appropriately called, “Roar and Snore.” All “Roar and Snore” sleepovers include a nice tent already set up with floor pads for your sleeping bag. Also, camp activities, an after-hours look at the wild life of animals, guided walks, a campfire program, dinner, an evening snack, and breakfast the following morning. Yikes, I dunno. I can outrun a snake, but, an elephant – let alone a cheetah – um, I don’t think I can run that fast. The fastest I’ve ever run was when I, literally, got ants in my pants when I was 10 years old at my grandma’s outdoor picnic.

Many indigenous tribes that encircle Escondido have enriched this cultural area not only on historical grounds, but as burgeoning businesses all of which provide a variety of jobs at the various casinos that dot the landscape here. The Native American casinos, located on reservations, provide an exciting night life of casino gambling, restaurants, and live Las Vegas-type shows which feature the greatest entertainers in the world today. Nearby Native American casinos are located at the Valley Center region, as well as Pechanga (Temecula), Pala Casino (Temecula), and Casino Pauma (Pauma Valley). Tribal members of these casinos all receive a monthly stipend once they reach age 18, which is correlated on casino profits.

This blood quantum varies, depending on each sovereign Native American tribal council which defines its own bylaws for its reservation members. I am not at liberty to disclose exact monthly stipend amounts as this information is regarded as sovereign information within respective tribal governments. However, in this very exclusive article, one may connect the dots to form a notion of monthly stipend amounts paid out to each member: the

On Tuesday, May 17th, at approximately 4:50 p.m., City of Carlsbad police officers responded to the 3500 block of Knollwood Drive in Carlsbad to investigate a report of a man puncturing vehicle tires. Witnesses were able to photograph the suspect prior to him fleeing the area. Officers at the scene determined that five vehicles had punctured tires.
Investigators were able to identify the suspect as 21 year old Ronnie Coching from Oceanside. On May 19, a search warrant was executed at Coching’s residence in the 4100 block of Lake Blvd., Oceanside. Evidence related to the crimes was located and Coching was arrested. Coching was interviewed by investigators and confessed to puncturing the tires of multiple vehicles on Knollwood Drive. Coching was booked into the Vista Detention Facility for Felony Vandalism. This case does not appear to be related to the vandalism series from the Rancho Carrillo community which are still being actively investigated. Anyone with information related to this series is encouraged to contact Detective Cosgrove at 760-931-2154. Suspicious Activity
The Escondido Police Department is seeking information regarding a suspicious male in the area of the 1000
block of E. Washington Ave. On May 9th, a white male, age 40-50 years old, driving an older red convertible, attempted to lure a teenaged female into his car by offering her money to give him directions. The female did not get into the car and reported the incident to police. On the same day, a citizen observed a similar vehicle / driver in the same area slow down and speak to a young teen-aged girl, and this girl did get into the car. The citizen followed the car and believes the male driver saw he was being followed and dropped the girl off before speeding away. The Escondido Police Department is asking anyone with information regarding these two incidents, or any other suspicious incidents involving this car, to please call Detective Elizabeth Hundley at (760) 839-4965.

smaller casinos pay out a monthly stipend (on average) of $9,000 monthly to each of its 18-and-over tribal members. You may now extrapolate that figure in applying that base amount to the larger, more lucrative reservation casinos such as Valley View, as well as San Diego County’s Sycuan, Barona, Viejas, etc. All of the aforementioned reservation casinos are run by the Kumeyaay Nation, the most dominant Native American presence in San Diego’s metropolitan region.
Escondido is well-known for its variety of parks, some are of great historical importance, such as Kit Carson Park. Kit Carson was named after the famous scout. The park sits in a valley that is about five miles west of where Kit Carson fought under General Kearny, in the Battle of San Pasqual during the Mexican-American War (1846-1848).
On December 7, 1846, General Stephen Watts Kearny’s U.S. Army engaged in a battle against the Mexicans, henceforth known as the Battle of San Pasqual. A historical monument commemorating the battle is located on Mule Hill, one mile southeast of the park. Though Kit Carson Park is the largest in Escondido (285-acres), it is not the oldest. That honor belongs to Grape Park, officially the oldest Escondido park. People from as far away as Los Angeles came to celebrate the annual Grape Day Harvest, once a major industry in the Escondido valley. Grape Day Harvest was celebrated every year from 1908 to 1950, and then was revived by the Escondido History Center in 1996. Grape Day park hosts many events including movies in the park (during the summer), and its spectacular annual 4th of July Celebration featuring music from a live band which complements the overhead pyrotechnic show! Also, be sure to visit the old Santa Fe Train Station and even find a seat to sit within the train itself! It’s a priceless Kodak Moment, so bring your camera. As previously stated, Escondido is wellknown for its variety of park land. But, just how many parks are in Escondido County? Take a multiple-choice guess below: A. 5 parks. B. 7 parks. C. 11 parks. D. 20 parks.
The number of Escondido parks vary from different unofficial sources, which can be misleading (such as on the internet). The internet, for example, lists anywhere from 14 to 20-plus parks in the county of Escondido. However, some ‘park areas’ they list are not within the city guidelines as being true parks, according to Escondido’s City and County Government bylaws. So, if you selected “C” above, well, you should be given a paid day-off to spend a leisurely afternoon at the park of your choice!
According to the City of Escondido’s Community Development, which is under the Escondido Planning Department (760) 839-4671, and the City of Escondido’s Community Services (760) 839-4691, the county of Escondido has 11 official parks within its region. City and County guidelines do not classify Daley Ranch, Dixon Lake, or nearby Lake Wohlford, for example, as true parks, even though these sites have large park areas, complete with picnic tables, barbecue facilities, etc. Nor do they classify small community parks scattered throughout the Escondido County area as true parks in
their registry. But, hey, if you wish to call them a park, also – be my guest!
Do you know what is the average annual income per household of people living in Escondido? You don’t? Well, have fun and take a guess below: A. $28,000 B. $36,000 C. $40,000 D. $49,000
Well, in 2014, the median household income of Escondido residents was $49,409 – and now gaining closer to the $50,000 mark. However, there is a significant downside, 19.8% of Escondido residents live in poverty.
Famous bandleader and television personality, Lawrence Welk (1903-1992), made his mark in Escondido when he created what is now the Lawrence Welk Village and Resort. This resort complex is located at 8860 Lawrence Welk Drive, in Escondido. For added information, you may call (866) 599-6674. The resort features many attractions including live performances at the Lawrence Welk Theatre which range from Broadwaystyle musicals, to comedy, and stage magic. Lawrence Welk, himself, is a most interesting persona. He never learned to fully grasp the fluency of the English language, and certain idioms confused him which, inadvertently, caused him to become even more popular on his own Lawrence Welk television shows, beginning in the 1950s. His accent seemed to intrigue television viewers.
Welk was born in the German-speaking community of Strasburg, North Dakota. His lineage was from ethnic Germans who emigrated to America in 1892. Welk’s verbal mistakes and clumsy sentences in English only added to his appeal. He once said on national television, “George, I want to see you when you have a minute – right now.” Such pronunciations tickled America at large and endeared him to a vast viewing audience. Another ‘Welk-ism’ was when he said, “Now, for my accordion solo. Myron, will you join me?”
On the other hand, Lawrence Welk was a stern disciplinarian and taskmaster. He once fired Alice Lon (the show’s “Champagne Lady” at the time) for dressing in a fashion where she was showing too much leg. Welk told the live audience that he would not tolerate such “cheesecake” performances on his show! However, Lawrence Welk did not anticipate public reaction which positioned itself against him! Ensuing fan mail, overwhelmingly, demanded that Alice Lon be re-hired! Welk valiantly tried to persuade Alice Lon to return but his attempts to re-hire her would prove fruitless. It would prove to be an indelible mark against Welk and his onceadoring public had glimpsed his dark side. Firing a woman during an actual performance in front of his audience was not to be tolerated by wide-ranging Americans. Lawrence Welk, whose automobile license plate read: “A1ANA2” was based on his signature lead-in line to his orchestra, “And a one, and a two . . .” Lawrence Welk died in 1992 at age 89. Despite his faux pas in firing his Champagne Lady in front of a live audience, he soon experienced a resurgence in popularity on television re-runs, even long after his death. The cornucopia of sights, sounds, and excitement which Escondido offers

Helping Local Hospitals
Earlier this year, the Legislature came together to pass bi-partisan healthcare financial reform legislation that will have a wide impact in this region and state. This legislative package will result in a net tax cut of over $100 million dollars and reduce the state’s long-term debt by more than $400 million.
But there’s much more. The bill package included a bill I coauthored, AB X2-1. In 2013, the state eliminated special reimbursements for nursing homes run by hospital systems, resulting in a so-called “clawback,” requiring hospitals to return funds previously allocated. Local hospitals and healthcare districts including Palomar Health, Sharp Hospital and the Fallbrook Healthcare District were required to pay back $12 million, $7.3 million and $1.2 million respectively. Under provisions of AB X2-1, these debts, which threatened to undermine the hospitals’ fiscal solvency and healthcare availabil-

3. I take my wife everywhere..... but she keeps finding her way back.
4. I asked my wife where she wanted to go for our anniversary. "Somewhere I haven't been in a long time!" she said. So I suggested the kitchen.
5. We always hold hands. If I let go, she shops. 6. She has an electric blender, electric toaster and electric bread maker. She said "There are too many gadgets and no place to sit down!" So I bought her an electric chair. 7. My wife told me the car wasn't running well because there was water in the carburetor. I asked where the car was; she told me "In the lake."
8. She got a mud pack and looked

ity, will now be eliminated. In addition, funding for the developmentally disabled, which the Governor failed to include in his budget, will increase by more than $300 million, with an additional 7.5 percent increase in funding for regional centers serving their needs. Along with bi-partisan legislative approval, these reforms received wide support from the healthcare industry. By passing this legislative package, the Legislature rejected previous proposals which would have increased health insurance taxes by $650 million, raising taxes on 24 million Californians. In the words of the California Chamber of Commerce, this legislation constitutes a “comprehensive solution that is a win-win for California.” Passage of this reform package is not only a victory for the developmentally disabled, for local hospitals and the patients they serve, it’s also a victory for California’s over-burdened taxpayers.

almost overwhelms in its depth and rich variety! From Broadway plays, musicals, magic shows, etc. at the California Center for the Performing Arts in Escondido or the ever-popular annual Friday night Cruisin’ Grand tradition (every Friday from April thru September) there is something for everyone to enjoy! The vastly famous and popular Cruisin’ Grand is where dream cars, hot rods, vintage vehicles of all types, including antiques, and rare custom automobiles, fill Grand Avenue at night like brightly colored ornaments adorning the streets. In short, there is much to experience and enjoy and create ‘forever-memories.’ Cruisin’ Grand has been described as a “time-warp experience which physically hits downtown Escondido, sending onlookers in a Blast-to-the-Past celebration featuring rock ‘n’ roll music and even dancing and hula-hoop contests!” The surrounding bistros, pubs, and beautiful restaurants are all there taunting, teasing, and beckoning you to come within and enjoy your favorite foods, or beverage. Pizza and hot dog stands, Vinz Bar and restaurant, and the great Irish pub “O’Sullivans,” which often features live music, a large selection of beers and a
pub food menu, as well as a popular outdoor patio where you can sit, eat, and enjoy the exciting sights and happenings right in front of you, on Grand Avenue!
Historically Speaking by Tom Morrow
Escondido seems constantly on the move, creating ever-new facets to its already dynamic region. For example, a new up-and-coming German supermarket, known as Aldi, which is spreading nationally in popularity, plans to establish one of its grocery stores at 1310 E. Valley Parkway, in Escondido, one of about 130 such stores in the United States! Aldi may give Walmart a serious run for its money! And its growing exponentially fast!
These changing dynamics in Escondido’s landscape make it an eclectic jewel which attracts new elements, and new burgeoning businesses! Escondido offers a tremendously widevariety of sites, events, historical footnotes, museums, and live entertainment that have drawn the rich, the famous, scientists, inventors, sports figures, and all those in-between, to this region of ours to live or just visit! All of this, and much more, have caused many residents to proudly proclaim: “Home Sweet Home, Escondido.”

Approximately 62 million people died in the war. Most of the casualties were civilians as a result of the large-scale Allied aerial bombing of cities, disease, starvation, and Hitler’s Holocaust genocide. It is estimated the Soviet Union, alone, suffered more than 25 million deaths; China lost some 10 million of its citizens. From Depression to War
The Second World War was the largest and most-deadly global military conflict in recorded history. It was the defining seven-year period of the 20th century – certainly the most important event in U.S. history.
The War historically began on Sept. 1, 1939, when Germany invaded Poland, drawing in the Polish allies of the United Kingdom and France. History should never forget that as early as 1937, the Japanese were invading China, killing thousand. What began as a territorial conflict in Eastern Europe spread quickly to Western Europe and across the Atlantic. In the Pacific, Japan captured dozens of islands and then attacked the U.S. installations in the Philippine Islands, Alaska, and Hawaii. Germany was joined by Italy and Japan, with other minor allies such as Austria, Rumania, Czechoslovakia, and Bulgaria. This confederation was known as the “Axis Powers.”

Germany surrendered, then Japan gave up on Aug. 14, 1945. The War officially ended on Sept. 2, 1945, with the formal surrender of the Empire of Japan on the deck of the battleship USS Missouri.
In 1940, Adolf Hitler, the Nazi leader in Germany, had signed a “non-aggression” treaty with the Soviet Union. When German invaded Poland from the west, Russia invaded from the east. Then Germany invaded Russia in June 1941. In December 1941, Japan attacked Pearl Harbor, various U.S. bases in the Philippines, Guam, and Wake Island, and then landed a force on Attu, in Alaska’s Aleutian islands. As the War dragged on, Italian forces collapsed, surrendered, then joined the Allies in 1943. On May 8, 1945,
For the Allied nations of the United Kingdom, France, Poland, Holland, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, China, and the United States, some 17 million military and 35 million civilians were killed. For the Axis Powers, 8 million military and 4 million civilians were killed. The United States had 16 million in uniformed services. Many more worked in wartime factories producing planes, guns, tanks, bombs and ammunition. We lost more than 600,000 of our military personnel. While there are many reasons declared as the causes of World War II, these aspects stand out: nationalistic control of vast geographic regions, and the natural resources those nations possess – namely oil. Japan, Germany, and Italy all needed the natural resources of others to maintain their imperialistic goals.
In Europe, the Treaty of Versailles, which officially ended World War I, with an Allied Powers victory, was perceived by Germany and grudgingly by a few others as unjust. Essentially, it stripped that nation of much of its natural resources and burdened it with nearly unsustainable cash payments of its former enemies. This resentment fueled the success of the militarist Nazi Party. Adolf Hitler and the Nazis succeeded beyond their wildest expectations primarily due to the economic conditions created by the world-wide Great Depression of the 1930s. The power the Nazis gained allowed them to re-arm Germany, launching Hitler on his blood-thirsty rampage. Today’s national economic and technological strength of the United States was forged by the challenges we faced during World War II.

The Pastor Says . . .
Pastor Tom Fry, Retired Church of the Nazarene
I’ve watched a lot of basketball recently. Some college, a little NBA, but lots and lots of kids basketball. From second graders to Middle School to high school.
One particular high schooler caught my eye. He was not a star player, not even a starter, but he might have been the most valuable player on the team. When the game started, he was on the bench. His warm-ups were already off, though. He was ready to go in the game. He took a seat right near the coach because he knew he would be the first substitute into the game. He was the proverbial “sixth man.” He was multi skilled. He could
go in for any player on the floor. To change up the offense or strengthen the defense. To get rebounds or shoot long 3 pointers. He was ready. He was willing. He energized the team when he entered the game. I’ve seen him turn a game around in just a few minutes on the floor and then return to his spot on the bench. Waiting for the next need to arise. I’ve seen him sit the bench most of the game, but his enthusiasm never lagged. He was “in” the game even on the bench. Any coach would want a kid like him on his team.
The church needs people like that. People who are willing to sit on the bench until they’re needed, and can fill any gap when needed.
Once the twelve disciples are named and introduced, we never hear about some of them again. But Jesus kept all twelve on his team. Some were bench warmers. I’m guessing there was at least one of them, right near Jesus, who was always ready to step in and fill a need whenever Jesus called. You don’t have to be the biggest star to be the most valuable.

Poolside CPR course offered in San Marcos
The City’s fire and community services departments have joined forces to offer a Poolside CPR program in San Marcos to equip residents with handsonly CPR skills.

OS of choice for 90% of PCs sold in the past 30 years, yet bureaucratic, slow-footed Microsoft continues to lose ground in competing with younger, more agile companies for Internet applications like browsers, search engines and Email services.
Paul & Nome Van Middlesworth, The Computer Factory
Microsoft’s Win10 Problem
Microsoft got it right when they released Win7 (Windows 7) in October of 2009. Win7 handles complex stand alone applications like animation, solids modeling and CAD-CAM while providing seamless, easy Internet access for on-line applications. The Win7 OS (operating system) has the technology to accomplish virtually anything a user could ask for. Win8 (2013) and Win10 (2015) provide no new features of benefit to users. So why did Microsoft expend the time, energy and money to develop a new OS that did nothing for its users? The answer is that Win8 and 10 were not developed to benefit users. Both were developed solely to help Microsoft compete for a larger share of Internet related revenue derived from the sale of data, advertising and services. The company that controls the OS on devices that access the Internet has the inside track in reaping Internet related revenue. Microsoft’s Windows has been the
Not only has Microsoft been losing opportunities in the PC arena where its OS dominates but PC sales themselves have been in decline since 2011. In addition “mobiles” (smart phones and tablets) surpassed PCs in 2014 as the most common Internet access devices. Alphabet’s (Google) Android OS controls 80% of “mobiles,” Apple 17% and Windows less than 3%. By 2012 Microsoft’s situation was this: The sale of Windows PCs, a major source of revenue for Microsoft, was in long term decline and Google and others were outcompeting them for PC Internet service revenue, their share of internet access had been severely eroded by the success of mobile devices and Windows had only a 3% footprint in the growing mobile device market.
Microsoft’s 2013 strategy to gain penetration in the mobile device market was simple. Put a touch screen Interface on Win7 and call it Win8. They reasoned that if Windows PCs looked and worked like Windows tablets and phones, Win8 PC users would dash out and buy Windows phones and tablets. Nobody liked Win8, PC sales plummeted and Microsoft’s “mobile” market share dropped even further. They gave up on Win8 in 2015 and brought on Win10. Win10 was basically a return to Win7. They removed a bunch of games and utilities that had been free with
The Doctor is In!
Tooth Preservation or Implant Placement
Long term tooth versus implant survival rates
Technological advances in the development of implants to replace "hopeless" or missing teeth along with a high predictability of survival rates has lead to the increasing popularity and clinical success of implants. This could result in the extraction of a person's natural teeth, that are salvageable, on the convenience rather than as a result of a comparative analysis between the survival of a natural tooth and its implant counterpart. Faced with the option of restoring a natural tooth versus extracting it and placing a dental implant, the doctor should take the following as well as others into consideration:
1. Is the tooth or area restorable? 2. Will it be strong? 3. What is the long term prognosis of the tooth vs. implant? 4. Compliance of the individual for maintaining the tooth or implant? 5. Does patient have systemic condition ie. diabetes, heart conditions, periodontal conditions. Also, smoking status. 6. Past experiences with patients tooth loss? 7. Long term survival of individual?
These are just a few factors affecting the patient. Financially, the patient should consider the cost of implants as well. They may not make a lot of difference with a single tooth, but if multiple sites are proposed, the cost factor can go up tremendously. If the tooth is restored in many cases, it can have a survivability that may equal, or even outlast the prognosis of an implant. Implants require good bone to survive, and if the bone is not adequate, additional bone must be provided to the site including bone grafts and/or sinus lifts, etc. This may also add to both the expense and time required to place an implant. After an implant fails, the next step is placing another implant.
previous Windows (media center, solitaire etc), put a price tag on them and stuck them on the shelf in their new online “company store.” They included a voice like Apple’s Siri (Cortana) and a new browser like Google’s Chrome (Edge) and announced that any PC phone or tablet born after 2010 could have Win10 for free. Why the generosity? Because Win10 had some important features they were not eager to discuss. Win10 could collect everything you did on your PC from your bank account password to your intimate conversations with Cortana. It gives Microsoft complete control over what goes on and what comes off your PC. You have virtually no control over your PC or your personal information. Your whereabouts, surfing habits, vices and virtues are all worth something to someone and Microsoft is eager to monetize your life. With nothing to gain from Win10, Win7
users (50% of the World’s PCs) have been reluctant to “upgrade.” With Win10’s uptake falling behind schedule, Microsoft decided to start without you. So when you turn your PC on some fine morning and find Win 10 merrily installing itself without your permission, not to worry. Win10 is like a vampire (in more ways than one). It must be invited in by you in order to stick around. Microsoft cannot legally snoop you without your permission so at some point they must ask you to sign the Win10 EULA (Microsoft End Users Agreement). You have two choices “Accept” or “Refuse”. When you “refuse” Microsoft has only one choice. They must restore your PC to its pre-Win10 condition.
Researchers report significantly lower success rates for reimplantation than for the original implant. With a tooth that started in the mouth by nature, if it is restorable, it frequently will last a long time without the amount of bone required by an implant.
ing more thoroughly at the overall results. If the bone is adequate and the natural tooth cannot be restored then the implant is chosen. However, in many cases, the patient is not adequately informed as to the survivability of the proposed implant and it is our responsibility to inform them of situations where the natural tooth may be the better choice in the long term.
There are many things to consider in deciding whether to place an implant versus restoring the tooth. As doctors we have patients come in every day with the idea of removing a tooth and placing an implant. On the other hand, we, as practitioners, have to resist the impulse to automatically go with the patient's wishes look-
Next week we will discuss how to “upgrade” to Win10 safely if you really want to, and how to keep Microsoft from bugging you to “upgrade.”
