Volume 49 - No. 22
By Friedrich Gomez
The year is 2011. For 17 years, since 1994, he hasn’t missed a single day. Every day, 7-days-a-week, come rain or come shine, he is a familiar sight to motorists on their commute to work. The old man stands at his regular spot on East 35th Street in Midtown Manhattan, just a stone’s throw from Third Avenue in New York. He is scruffy-looking, grey whiskers, and a ball cap covering his scarecrowlike hair. His untidy and disheveled appearance is hung upon his bent The Paper - 760.747.7119
frame; a body bent from 97 years of living. At 3 years short of his 100th birthday, he is among the oldest of street beggars. His story tugs at the heartstrings. He began begging for money at age 80. Since that time, drivers -- and now their children – have taken him to their hearts, giving him money, sometimes generous sums at a time, as if he were a familiar family member. At one red light, the old man hobbles with the help of his walker to accept another generous donation from a smiling motorist who warmly greets the homeless-looking figure. His pan-
handling technique is not all onesided: he offers newspapers in exchange (free newspapers he gathers from various drop spots).
He hobbles between lanes of traffic, approaching drivers at the Queens Midtown Tunnel. A few minutes later, while still leaning on his walker for support, the feeble senior citizen asks a driver at a red light: “Help a guy out?” The driver obliges with a smile and cash transfers from his hand to the pedestrian.

At the end of the day, the familiar old panhandler sits his tired body down and empties dozens of pockets, all stuffed with change and wrinkled dollar bills, some 10s, 20s, even 50 dollar bills. This particular day, he stops counting at $106.19 and writes the final total on a daily accounting sheet. He confesses out loud to a New York reporter that he sometimes gets $250 for a single day of panhandling. On rare moments, some of the New York motorists will peer long and deep into his squinting eyes as if trying to remember what famous person

Street Panhandlers Cont. from Page 1 he reminds them of.
No one realizes that this panhandler is a multi-millionaire – many times over! That he is, in fact, the world-famous comedian, known as “Professor Irwin Corey,” whom the legendary Lenny Bruce described as “One of the most brilliant comedians of all time,” and the mighty theatre critic Kenneth Tynan of The New Yorker described as “Charlie Chaplin’s tramp (character) with a college education.” This panhandler is a galaxy away from the usual sort; he is the same person whose resume runs the gamut from Broadway to motion pictures and television. A personage who has appeared with the likes of Jackie Gleason, Jack Paar, Ed Sullivan, Merv Griffin, David Letterman, and Johnny Carson. His film credits seem endless, cast along such luminaries as Robin Williams, and his latest role in Woody Allen’s “The Curse of the Jade Scorpion” (2001). The money he had just finished counting this day in October of 2011 was in the comfort of his luxurious, upscale $3.5-million carriage home on East 36th Street. At the time of his death 6 years later, at the great age of 102 on February 6, 2017, Irwin Corey’s net worth would orbit around $7-million.
This panhandling scenario is not the subterfuge you may be thinking.

Herewith, the official Sweet Life and Swell Times of lyle, who was born in Windom, Minnesota on the banks of the Des Moines River (anything to save room rent), to which his great-grandfather, Hans Tollefson, came from Norway to farm and settle.
lyle claims that, when he was growing up there, the height of the cultural season was the arrival of a Painted Turtle.
After moving to the up and coming cattle town of Omaha, Nebraska, when only three years of age, he, being the sensitive and kindly sort, allowed as how his mom and dad could join him in that journey.
At one time he had a newspaper route (little did he realize that one day he would own his very own newspaper with a readership exceeding five people). Later graduating from Omaha's Benson, High, he would soon demand
This panhandling storyline has a happy ending. Professor Irwin Corey panhandled for the plight and poverty of Cuban children. He keeps none of the money for himself. Regarding the motorists, Corey says, “I don’t tell them where the money’s going, and I’m sure they don’t care.” Indeed, he has traveled to Cuba to present the donations, personally, to Fidel Castro. One photograph with Castro contains the dictator’s handwritten sentiments to Corey: “With admiration, gratitude and affection.” Corey’s panhandling is for the good of humankind, and all the proceeds he solicits from people are duly recorded and donated so that medical supplies for children in Cuba can be purchased. His celebritystatus panhandling gives renewed meaning to the well-known phrase “eccentric millionaire.”
Unfortunately, not all such guises and honesty are in the playbook of all panhandlers. Unlike Irwin Corey’s methodology, smoke and mirrors are sometimes parlayed for deceitful and greedy gain. It is hopeful that this article will promote greater education, precaution, and discretion regarding panhandling today and the laws which govern it. We have all seen our share of panhandlers on various street corners and intersections. Escondido, Poway, San Marcos, Lemon Grove, La Mesa, San Diego, well, just to be allowed to join the US Army but only if he was favored with a chance to take his basic training at the then-beautiful Fort Ord, California. Thoroughly cowed. the Army acceded to his demands and he grabbed the first available plane to fly out of snow covered Nebraska to sunny California. After Basic Training he was shuttled off to Brooke Army Hospital in Fort Sam Houston, Texas (near San Antonio) where he wangled a cushy job as Entertainment Director, writing newspaper columns and putting on stage shows for the troops. Following his military career of a whole two years he returned to Omaha then sped over to the University of Nebraska at Omaha, where he majored in Psychology and soon learned he was certifiably nuts . . . at which time he did the only sane thing and switched his major to broadcasting.
He soon entered the hazardous field of radio broadcasting, there to languish for 25 years . . . moving from deejay to salesman, to Sales Manager, to Vice President and General Manager, to owner, then back to VP and General Manager, then back to on-air gigs as a Traffic Reporter for KFMB in San Diego. Somewhere within these years he earned a private pilot's license, ASEL (Airplane, Single Engine, Land) . . . spent 1967 and 1968 as a war correspondent in someplace called South Vietnam, managed to fool a few people into giving him some prestigious awards ... and, as one of his crowing achievements, actually talked these people into paying him to do all these adventures.
He also managed to sweet talk some innocent little Scots lassie into marrying him and presenting him with two sons.
about everywhere in San Diego County. Make-shift cardboard signs with over-sized crayon-type scribbling often proclaim a short bio such as “Homeless with kids. Please help!” Or variations of the same theme, “Hungry Veteran. Help. God Bless you.”
While all of the above may bring a sincere tug at the heartstrings, there are often those who wish to ‘fleece the system’ and falsely parade themselves as being indigent when in reality – they are not. Such is life. No matter what the crusade, what the cause, there will always be individuals who will wrongfully exploit and abuse the sentimental underbelly – just to get at your wallet or purse. One of the biggest surprises is how much money can actually be brought in from panhandling. It is this lucrative aspect which is bringing on board a burgeoning number of imitators. The dishonest ones, who are misrepresenting themselves as being homeless, or impoverished, are not only hurting the plight of individuals who truly need your help, but they are beginning to raise the hackles of the homeless community, itself. As one homeless person bitterly complained, “It burns my butt because they (the imitators) make it bad for the people that are really struggling and really trying to get somewhere.” And it’s not just here, it’s every-

(The fact that his mansion by the sea is located some 18 miles inland, technically, is still 'by the sea.)

This increasing epidemic of ‘panhandling imposters’ is nothing new under the sun -- it’s been happening for several years now – unchecked and accelerating in startling numbers.
In March of 2016, news services in England reported on a con man identified by British authorities as Stewart Fenton, who posed as a homeless veteran of the Iraq war. His two cardboard signs said he was a 12-year ex-armed forces paratrooper. Fenton’s fabricated story produced shockwaves throughout Great Britain and neighboring European countries. He was neither homeless nor did he ever serve in the military. His confession to police is that he preyed upon the sentiment of his unsuspecting British countrymen. Amazingly, the 38-year-old imposter raked in an astounding 5,000 pounds (equivalent to $6,617 American dollars) before being exposed! Such scenarios are, sadly, becoming more and more common.
Closer to home, television’s Fox 19 in Cincinnati, Ohio, hit the pavement and got an earful from the truly homeless people there. They are angry and frustrated at these phony imitators that are hurting them. Cincinnati police have files on individuals who claim to be

He is a modest, humble individual . . . chiefly, it is said, because he has a lot to be humble about.
He has maintained his ability to be a smooth, persuasive talker . . . evidence of which is his having persuaded his lovely Ms. Evelyn to tolerate him for some 17 years or more. They were a couple and have been known to occasionally embrace and even say nice things to one another, though Evelyn has been known to whisper her thoughts. lyle just assumes they are lovely, endearing thoughts.
Thus endeth the tale of lyle the Magnificent, though humble in spirit and deed. Though, upon reflection it has not, in fact, endeth . . . for he is still very much alive.

homeless, beg for money, but actually live in homes and are far from being poor. One fraudulent beggar preyed on the sentiments of passersby, making sizable dollar amounts each day, pretending to be handicapped. He has been in-andout of the court system in Cincinnati. He is neither handicapped, nor homeless. The prevalence of street begging has necessitated new laws regulating such behavior. For example, the Cincinnati city ordinance declares panhandling to be illegal on “Any public transportation, or within 20-feet of an ATM, or at any bus stop, or within 20-feet of any crosswalk.”
Such laws regarding panhandling near crosswalks and street median dividers, especially where there is heavy traffic, are a safety precaution. In 2015 a panhandler was killed by a driver in Escondido, California. The victim was a 27year-old woman soliciting for financial handouts at West Mission Avenue at Quince Street where she stepped off a center median and approached a pickup truck to receive money from the sympathetic driver. The good intention led to a fatality. After receiving the cash donation she tripped on her return to the median divider and was accidentally run over by the trailer behind the truck, which was hauling concrete and sand. She was
Women’s Foundation to Award Grants to Groups Working to Combat Human Trafficking – The San Diego Women’s Foundation (SDWF) announced they will award $243,000 to local organizations during its annual Grants Celebration on June 5th. The Annual Grants Celebration, “Images of Impact: Snapshots of Community Change,” will honor the impact of women in philanthropy and award grants to these organizations that combat human trafficking in the San Diego region. This year’s grantees include Children’s Legal Services, Free to Thrive, GenerateHope, North County Lifeline, and Project Concern International: Trafficking Prevention Collective. “Human trafficking simply should not exist in our community,” said SDWF Executive Director Katie Sawyer. “We are proud to partner with these phenomenal organizations who will help survivors get their lives back on track and prevent others from becoming victims in the first place.” The event will be held on Wednesday, June 5, from 6-8pm at the Museum of Photographic Arts in Balboa Park. The evening will commemorate the new 2019 grant recipients, highlight the successes of last year’s grant cycle and celebrate the $3.5 million in grants that have been awarded to 96 nonprofit programs in San Diego since the establishment of SDWF in 2000. Tickets for the 19th Annual Grants Celebration cost $35 per person. For more information about the event or to purchase tickets, visit https://www.sdwomensfoundation.org.

It is also against the law to solicit in any aggressive manner. Earlier this year, a 34-year-old San Diego man was stabbed in the back at a 7Eleven convenience store when he refused to give money to a panhandler. He was aggressively attacked from behind when he felt the cold blade of a knife plunge deep into his back! He was taken to a hospital with non life-threatening injuries and survived. He was one of the lucky ones.
Aggressive panhandling is becoming widespread. San Francisco, Boston, and most every major city are increasingly cracking down on such dangerous behavior. Escondido’s police department’s website (police.escondido.org/panhandlers.aspx) discourages the public from giving randomly to beggars. It is not only a legal issue, it can be extremely dangerous, as noted above. Recently, the laws governing street begging have become a political football, of sorts. For example, the Boston police distinguish between ‘active’ panhandling versus ‘passive’ panhandling. Active panhandling is openly asking for money, either with a sign or verbally. Passive panhandling is opening doors at a store with a cup in hand, but not saying anything. U.S. Courts have repeatedly ruled

that begging is protected by the First Amendment’s free speech provision. On August 14, 2013, the U.S. Court of Appeals struck down a Grand Rapids, Michigan, antibegging law on the grounds of free speech. Earlier, an Arcata, California, law banning panhandling within 20-feet of stores was struck down on similar legal grounds in 2012. However, it is considered clearly unlawful if a beggar is making a misleading representation of why they need the extra cash in the first place. For example, stating that they are homeless, jobless, or impoverished, when neither situation is true – is against the law. It is false representation in the pursuit of dollar donations.
The amount of money that can be made at panhandling has caught the attention of unscrupulous individuals. Such dishonesty and fraudulent publicity not only hurts the real homeless sector – it causes widespread anger and deep mistrust by the general public. CNN News publicized a pregnant woman with her young boy in San Diego who was panhandling and raking in handsful of sentimental dollars only to be caught on camera driving off in a luxurious Mercedes Benz automobile! When San Diego Police ran a check on the Mercedes Benz license plate number, it was traced to a suburban apartment. A couple days later, when a news reporter showed up at

her place of residence – well, she and her husband and son had already moved out! She was one step ahead of the law. She was a seasoned, smart cookie, although a hugely unethical one. It was found that she lived in an Escondido apartment complex where she easily made payments of $2,500 per month to her landlord! Witnesses at the scene of her panhandling said they would often see her bringing in tons of money, tens, twenties, easily – especially when her young son was paraded as an emotional tactic, as well as her being pregnant. Later, she was allegedly seen going, periodically, to her Mercedes Benz where she and her husband would be laughing as they counted the loads of cash. One witness said, “Why work? The husband is a lowlife sitting in a beautiful Mercedes sedan while his wife weasels hardearned money from loving and trusting people! They do it dishonestly. How do they sleep at night?” Sadly, this is not an isolated case.
Various news agencies have weighed in with their perspectives on street begging. Their views are often at odds with each other, which further complicates fathoming any truth or barometer of factual finding.
John Stossel of Fox News, for example, has gone on record stating, “I had heard that some people

The Paper • Page 4 • May 30, 2019 Oceanside Residents Upset at Yet Another Delay on North River Farms Vote
For the fourth time the Oceanside City Council opted to not make a decision on whether or not Integral ommunities will be allowed to build hundreds of homes in what, to date, has been an agricultural region.
The proposed project originally called for almost 1000 homes when first submitted in 2016. For the third time the city’s Planning Commission has recommended denial,most recently on a 6-0 vote. Each time the developer has pulled his proposal and requested time to modify, presumably to appease angry residents and placate council members.
Most recently, the council, by a 3-2 vote decided to postpone their decision. When the vote was announced the audience member erupted in anger. If eventually approved the project would deliver hundreds of homes, a hotel and retail shops.
“We do have significant changes we’d like to make,” Integral project manager Ninia Hammond said Wednesday, though she offered no details. On land that has been used for decades to grow tomatoes, flowers and avocados. the North River Farms plan calls for up to 656 homes on 176.6 acres.
Opponents say the development would greatly increase traffic
throughout the region, where roads already are congested, and that it would overtax public safety, water and sewer systems in the rural area. They also cite the danger of flooding from the nearby San Luis Rey River, and the risk of wildfires spread by brush along the riverbank. Integral says the farm-themed community, with its neighborhood parks, shared gardens and meeting spaces, would provide much-needed housing for Oceanside. The developer would pay for a temporary fire station and off-site road improvements, and the project would create jobs, tax revenue and other benefits that the area needs. Council members Esther Sanchez and Ryan Keim voted against the postponement. Carlsbad is Hiring
The money is there and the need is there so C.arlsbad is hanging out the”Help Wanted” sign, seeking to attract up to 39 new full time positions. The upscale city is growing so the need for public safety, code enforcement and cybersecurity has grown along with the population growth, city officials say.
Carlsbad went from about 82,000 residents in 2000 to 115,000 residents today, yet until last year the city had added no police officer positions in 10 years, said police Chief Neil Gallucci. His department would see 11 additional employees under the proposed budget.

In addition to the daily grind of producing a weekly newspaper I had also taken on the burden of being a primary caregiver for my former wife, Mary, who had developed dementia.

Escondido Elementary Teachers Agree to Tentative Deal on Labor Contract
If approved by the Escondido Union School District, new pay rates will go into force on July 1st of this year for all elementary school teachers. Teachers will receive a raise of 3.37 percent, retroactive to July 2018. They will also receive a 2.44 percent salary increase, effective July 1 of this year. Those increases are in addition to the guaranteed step and column increases teachers receive for time served and continuing education. The contract guarantees that middle school teachers will have five unassigned class periods per week for prep time, and elementary teachers are provided 200 minutes of prep time for each 10 school days.
Under the previous salary schedule, an entry level credentialed teacher started at $41,321. After 10 years of teaching, a teacher who had completed 60 units of continuing education credits would be paid $74,174. The teacher would earn $85,828 after 20 years in the classroom, and could reach a maximum of $98,658. Those pay rates will increase according to the new contract starting July 1.
puppy faces looking out the window. Life is good.
The car ride took me back to many other pleasant car rides. I remember the four/four and a-half hour drive from Omaha to Grandma's farm in southern Minnesota. Always great to arrive at our destination and get the hugs and kisses from grandma . . . . . . but the journey was almost as great as arriving at the destination.
I remember going through really small, colorful towns . . . in both Nebraska and Iowa (for we'd cross over into Iowa when we reached Sioux City, Iowa . . and finish up the journey from there . . . our half-way point.)
I wish now we'd taken the time to stop and visit in some of those small towns. Perhaps get to know some of the people . . . the legends of the town, the culture of the towns . . often, there's a lot of interesting history there. But, no, we drove right on through . . . all too anxious to see Grandma again. I come from small town people. Windom, Minnesota, where I was born . . . was small. Maybe 5,000 population. Maybe less. There was a standing joke that one reason Windom never really grew is that every time a baby was born, someone left town.
Letters to the Editor Last Flight
Editor.......The first time I’ve read “The Last Flight” story by Kent Ballard was your article in the May 23rd issue of The Paper.
I was born in 1931, Ocean Beach, and raised in Logan Heights in San Diego. In the years 1941 thru 1945 I peddled my bicycle all over the San Diego area including the beach cities, La Jolla, El Cajon and including Coronado – the Ferry from the San Diego harbor (I forgot the name of the pier) to Coronado was free as far as I can remember. I delivered the San Diego Union in the morning to about 150 customers

Small towns tend to have rich histories. But sometimes we're too busy . . . or in too much of a hurry to stop and explore them. Today, I'd love to have Charles Kuralt's old job. Driving America and stopping to visit the small towns, villages, and cities . . . and getting to know the stories that lay within them. His "On the Road" series was a fascinating look at America. All these thoughts passed through my mind . . . in just this one afternoon. Just because we decided to get out of the office and go for . . . a car ride.
I will do that more and more often in this coming year. And I’ll squeeze in another ‘getaway’ from time to time. Strange how just kicking back for two or three days can totally change your physical and emotional self.
Something magical happens, particularly if you’re with someone you care deeply about and whose company you enjoy.
At my age, getting away from business should happen often. I find I rather enjoy it, am better for it, and I still can come back to the work I love . . . after being properly rested and relaxed. But, for now? It’s back to work. We have a deadline to meet.

Street Panhandlers Cont. from Page 3
beg for a living and make big bucks -- $80,000 a year in some cases.” Stossel draws a hard line in the sand, “You really shouldn’t give to these street people. You are really supporting alcoholism and drug problems.”
Public surveys of street panhandlers reveal a less harsh conclusion of society’s outcasts. Many disagree, heartily, with Stossel’s conclusions. Nonetheless, even these contradicting surveys to Stossel seem to present a completely different portrait of the street beggar that is still very naïve. The general public often has their hearts in the right place and, therefore, they are stunned into disbelief to see the prevalence of street-begging fraud. Unlike before, today’s general populace is now beginning to ask the hard questions. Are the majority of panhandlers lazy people who do not really want to work? Many seem able-bodied; even robust and well-dressed. How do we discern the honest beggars from the imitators? And are they using handouts to just purchase more alcohol and drugs?
Currently, the public-at-large is aroused with renewed curiosity on all of these queries. This new resurgence of questioning is fueled by the increasing prevalence of street panhandlers everywhere. Such wide-spread visibility creates

Dan was a single guy living at home with his father and working in the family business.
When he found out he was going to inherit a fortune when his sickly father died, he decided he needed to find a wife with whom to share his fortune.
One evening, at an investment meeting, he spotted the most beautiful woman he had ever seen. Her natural beauty took his breath away.
"I may look like just an ordinary guy," he said to her, "but in just a few years, my father will die and I will inherit $200 million." Impressed, the woman asked for his business card.
Three months later, she became his stepmother.

wide-spread curiosity by the public at large. Should I give? Or should I not? Perhaps yes in some scenarios, and no in others? And even then, how can I know for sure? Some suggest giving to well-known charities and church-related outreach programs for the poor and indigent, as a better guarantee how your money is spent.
Homeless panhandler, Anthony Smith, made a plea: “Everybody you see on the street, whether they’re dirty or dusty, they’re not bad people. All people don’t do drugs, all people don’t drink.” It’s an obvious social dilemma that is now too big to ignore. Every person, every day, sees scores of panhandlers, multiple times, in multiple places, wherever they go. It is a highly visible situation that screams-out to be addressed. It is the proverbial elephant standing in our living room. To pretend it doesn’t exist is to lose our sense of responsibility. Researchers are now tackling these social phenomena and are looking for some modicum of answers. As varied as they may be. In 2019, there still seems to be no right answer which is a “one size fits all” solution.
San Francisco is in the forefront of researching this. The Union Square Business Improvement District, which is a wide collection of about 500 property owners in the city, went so far as to hire a GLS
Research group to collect some general insight. The results were surprising to many. The San Francisco study found that the average panhandler rakes in about $25 per day. That’s average. Some make a whole lot more -- as much as $15 to $20 per hour, depending on such variables as location, physical appearance, emotional sign presentation, and commitment of time spent begging, etc. The San Francisco GLS study showed that about 50% of panhandlers were African-American, and 1/3 were white. An overwhelming 83% were male and 82% actually homeless. Sadly, 26% were U.S. military veterans. Also, 62% of the homeless were disabled, 44% use their handouts for drugs or alcohol, and 32% were actually addicted to drugs.
An independent study in Oregon revealed a dramatic departure to San Francisco’s findings. One research study found some beggars outside a Walmart store making $300 a day! Some averaging as much as $100,000 a year! Other ‘spike’ examples exist, such as a beggar in Oklahoma City, OK, who rakes in $60,000 per year (close to $30 per hour). As can readily be seen, many of today’s homeless frequent libraries. Some even use the free computer time to bring in necessary funds. One legitimately homeless person owns a Blog on the internet and

amazed. "Your son is very successful; what does he do for a living?"
The following Sunday, he watched as the offering was collected and saw an elderly woman put the distinctive pink envelope on the plate. This went on for weeks until the pastor, overcome by curiosity, approached her.
The man said, 'I do, Father.'
One Sunday, in counting the money in the weekly offering, the Pastor of a small church found a pink envelope containing $1,000. It happened again the next week!
"Ma'am, I couldn't help but notice that you put $1,000 a week in the collection plate," he stated.
"Why yes," she replied, "every week my son sends me money and I give some of it to the church."
The pastor replied, "That's wonderful. But $1000 is a lot, are you sure you can afford this? How much does he send you?" The elderly woman answered, "$10,000 a week." The pastor was

'Then stand over there against the wall,' said the priest. Then Father Murphy walked up to O'Toole and asked, 'Do you want to go to heaven?' O'Toole said, 'No, I don't Father.'

makes between $15 to $30 an hour. He states that the ‘downside’ is that his homeless income is unpredictable, meaning he can “Beg all day and I only make $60.”
Adding to the plight of the legitimately impoverished who barely survive, are the fraudulent individuals who are not homeless at all. Some in fact own automobiles, homes, and a sizable nest-egg which they greedily add onto. Not wanting to dip into their savings, and not wanting to work, these individuals will ‘dress-down’ to prevent any semblance of self-subsistence. They wish to portray a disheveled appearance and povertylooking cardboard sign to emphasize their downtrodden status. Some signs will end with a “May God bless you!” in order to stir up any guilt-feelings that may arise if one does not contribute. These numbers of fraudulent panhandlers is increasing as word spreads of a ‘bonus income.’ One couple stated that their ‘professional panhandling’ scheme brings in an average of $180 an hour! In Modesto, California, television station KCRA-3 reported a staggering story of panhandling. One such example was a family (which included two small children) which collected $366 in only two hours! Emotional passersby also gave them several gift cards to various

restaurants in the area. Modesto Police have cited the couple in the past. According to police records, the couple uses their 5-and-7-yearold children to gain extra sympathy and bring in bigger bucks. As social workers have voiced, “To exploit children for bad deeds is beyond sinful. It shows no conscience at all in the pursuit of money.”
The family mentioned above, had their panhandling skills down to a science. The Modesto Police department said they had a carefully-planned log book for begging activity. Heather Graves, a spokesman for the Modesto Police Department stated: “It’s kind of an organized log. It shows cities they visit. They even have times of days that work best.” Their influx of cold cash was so tremendous that the police found money receipts in the amount of $1,700 and $2,000 that were sent out of the country to family members in Romania! The family confessed to police that they even use an organized list of locations in various cities throughout the Central Valley area to maximize their panhandle income. One contributor, Eddie Avila, said “I gave them money, then found out they were making more money than me!”
The Modesto Police Department urges citizens to find other ways to give to needy people. Perhaps through one’s church, or through various legitimate fundraisers. Modesto police say many panhandlers misdirect their earnings.
In January of 2018, almost 600,000 people were homeless on any given night in the United States. Research reveals that one in 30 American children were homeless at some point last year. That’s about 2.5million kids, an 8% increase, according to the National Center on Family Homelessness. As of 2017 statistics, over half of those kids were under 6-years-old. It should be made clear that homelessness is not a crime. And not all homeless people beg for money. There are varying circumstances. As of January 2019, San Diego County’s estimated homeless population of 8,742 people, were living on the streets or in shelters. Some were sporadically in-and-out of family dwellings. San Diego Police Department are fully aware that even though homelessness is not a crime, closely related issues are. For example, it is illegal to be living in a vehicle parked on a public street. Or being intoxicated in public, loitering, prowling, trespassing, fighting, disturbing the peace, etc. Homelessness and panhandling often go hand-in-hand. It is an extremely complex social problem.
Never blame our police officers for enforcing these laws. Our law enforcement does not legislate or make these laws; they only enforce them.
Homelessness and panhandling is on the increase in San Diego County. Back in 2007, San Diego County was ranked 12th in homeless populations across the U.S. As of 2019, we are now ranked No. 4 in the United States! (U. S. Department of Housing & Urban Development.) Escondido, California, is estimated to have 400 to 500 homeless people. A great portion of which still socialize around Grape Day Park. Growth in homelessness results in growth in panhandling. Some eke out a living, begging. Some thrive on it. One panhandler outside Grand Central Terminal says he makes up to $200 an hour from kind-hearted New Yorkers. Still others go hungry, with barely enough change to purchase something hot to eat. Then, there is street-smart, Will Andersen, who is sporadically homeless, along with his 9-year-old dog, Rizzo. But Andersen knows how to work the streets. “I got three breakfast sandwiches today! And they were all meat! I’m putting on pounds out here!” This, despite the New York Commissioner’s admonishment for the public to not give money to vagrants. Anderson’s successful begging flies in the face of the Police Commissioner. “I have gotten $80 or $100 from a single person. I get dog food. I sometimes can save some for a hotel or hostel. I pay $300 a month – that’s nothing.”
In San Diego, a down-on-his-luck Vietnam veteran panhandles so he may eat. He chooses to back off from approaching cars. “All I do is panhandle enough each day to get $4.80 to go get something to eat.” He doesn’t ask for much. For what little he receives, he’s grateful. Then, there’s the elderly AfricanAmerican whose sign has the Marine motto: “Semper fi.” And Roderick Couch, 28 years old, in a wheelchair outside a Walmart store. And also, Jazmine Saldana, 24, who carries a cardboard sign with a plea for donations.
The homeless have their own way of speech. “You have to know how to fly,” Saldana says. “That’s what we call it when you fly a sign.” In her case, she ‘flies’ a crude cardboard sign. It’s not pretty. Nor are the letters fancy. The language is often bad grammar. But, who cares? The important message is clear and crisp and profound. They are truly homeless.
Through various outreach and charitable organizations, the real faces of the homeless are genuinely identified. Their plight and struggle is nothing short of painful to behold. One tiny 4-year-old girl holds an honest sign which simply declares: “We live in a car.” Another sincere sign-holder who is well-known in the Christian com-

Enjoying our bounty
This region plays a big part in making California the nation’s leading agricultural state. Locally grown crops that include avocados, citrus, strawberries, grapes and cut flowers have put San Diego in the top tier of the nation’s agricultural counties. According to the San Diego County Farm Bureau, San Diego is the 19th largest farm economy out of more than 3,000 counties nationwide. I am a big supporter of local agriculture, and last week I was proud to recognize John Burr, the San Diego County Farm Bureau’s Farmer of the Year. John was recognized for his decades of agricultural innovation and entrepreneurship, both locally and in the Central Valley. Over the years, his scientific and entrepreneurial expertise has contributed to the success of his family’s farm and to agriculture throughout California.
Another way we can all support our farmers is by buying their products directly. Though much of this region’s produce is marketed nationally and worldwide, we sometimes forget we can enjoy this bounty by purchasing food from our farmers at Farmers Markets that have sprouted across our region.

I also remember the two engine PBY flying boat flying off into the distance.

Livin’ Large in San Marcos
“Livin Large” is about finding the places and events around our community that have something special to fit the moods and niches in our lives. Since the overwhelming majority of us are just plain folk who actually don’t have completely unlimited financial resources it goes without saying that what makes us happy shouldn’t make us poor, so there is bargain hunting element in our pursuit of “Livin Large.” The 55 Yard Line is a sports Bar in Restaurant Row. Like all sports bars, they have lots of TV sets. Their menu and prices are pretty much what you would expect and they do have an excellent kitchen. It is locally owned, not a national chain like The Buffalo Wild Wings sports bar fifty feet from their front door. It has that local, old school feel to it, kind of like the off-campus hangouts of yore where you carved your initials on the tables. It’s a fun place to meet with friends to watch a sporting event and drink a few beers.
What qualifies them for “Livin Large” is what they do on Saturday and Sunday mornings from between 9:00 and 11:30 AM. They serve breakfast. No reservations, no waiting and they have both indoor and outdoor tables. Their breakfast menu and pricing are fairly standard but there are two menu items that set them apart. The first is their signature Scrambled Egg Breakfast Pizza. At $9.50, it’s delicious and big enough for two to share. The second is their $3 price for Bloody Marys and Mimosas. If you feel real frisky you can take the “bottomless“ option for $8 and see how many you can down before noon. The 55 Yard Line is the perfect place to go for breakfast on a Sunday morning when you woke up too late to go to church and you’re too hungry to wait for a table at Mama Kats.

Historically Speaking by Tom Morrow
Readers Write Their Memories of History
Many readers often write about history things. Retired KGTV newsman John Beatty noted I failed to mention “Studebaker” in my recent “Golden Age of Automobiles” column.
He’s right. I forgot to mention one of America’s first transportation companies. Studebaker built horse and oxen-drawn wagons during the Civil War, and many of the socalled “Prairie Schooners” for the great migration to settle the West.
John wrote: “By golly, Tom, you left out the Studebaker-Erskine, (see above photo) named after of president the Erskine, Studebaker during the late twenties. We had a 1929 four-door Studebaker-Erskine sedan. The folks turned it in as scrap metal during WWII since gas ration cards limited gasoline availability.”
Regarding my column of two weeks ago, a former Marine, who is a San Diego native, wrote about seeing the old wooden (plank) road just west of Yuma.
“Mr. Morrow, In early 1953 my wife and I drove from San Diego thru Yuma and up thru the mountains of Arizona to Flagstaff where we hit Highway 66 all the way to Oklahoma City. I was in the Marine Corps and transferred to We duty in Oklahoma City. observed the wooden road off to the right of the highway we were on and sort of knew it was an old wooden road even though we had never heard of it before. The parts of the road we observed appeared in pretty good condition except for missing sections,” wrote Donald Zumwalt.
But, Donald reminded me of another historic gem – the huge camouflage blanket covering the Consolidated Aircraft plant near Lindbergh Field where the B-24 bombers were built during World War II.
He wrote: “Have you ever heard of the camouflage net that was placed over parts of Lindbergh Field and the aircraft factories in 1942 shortly after World War II began? I was 10 years old and it basically covered parts of Lindbergh Field and proba-
bly most of the aircraft factories.
“Pacific Highway was covered and a building still standing (as of about a year ago) had only the top floor protruding thru the net. I went up West Palm Street, Laurel Street to around 1st or 2d Street and looked down to see what the sight was – it appeared to be farming land. I was only 10 years old and discovered the net while riding my bicycle. I’ve always wondered if anything has ever been published about the net and if anyone had pictures?” Donald concluded.
I’ve looked in a number of places (historic records, books, etc.), but haven’t been able to find a photo of the camouflage. Down through the years I’ve been told by readers about the net covering much of the eastern end of the airport and the Consolidated plant. I’ve even had men and women tell me about the covering when they worked building the B-24s during World War II.
It’s a fascinating footnote in San Diego history. If anyone out there has a photo of the camouflage, I’d love to have it for this column. (If possible, e-mail it in .jpg format. I wouldn’t want to take the chance of having any precious artifact photos lost in snail-mail). My East coast and Canadian senior citizen readers would enjoy reading and seeing more history about San Diego’s veil.

GROANER -- One Sunday morning a young boy decided to surprise his grandmother with a cup of coffee. He'd never made coffee before, and watched eagerly as his grandma took her first sip. Grandma bravely smiled as she sipped her way through the worst cup of coffee she had ever tasted. She didn't want to hurt her grandson's feelings, so as she took the last sip, she thanked him for his effort. Then glancing into the cup, she noticed three green plastic army guys at the bottom. She stared at them, then asked her grandson, "What are these green plastic army guys doing in my coffee cup?" The boy, with a wide grin, said: "Oh, you know, Grandma, it's just like on TV. 'The best part of waking up is soldiers in your cup.'"

munity simply holds a shoddy piece of cardboard which says: “Imagine – if this were you.”
There is no easy solution to this worldwide social epidemic: the poor, the hungry. The lost souls who hurt so badly they sometimes take their own lives as a final solution. The statistics are staggering to read. Their true stories buckle the back of our knees and render us speechless. As an occasional food server for the indigent in our community, I must confess that I occasionally go outside the serving facility to bite my lip and grapple with my emotions before re-entering. The stories they tell as you sit next to them, sharing a modest meal, can be a most profound experience. Sometimes all they want is someone to talk with. A good listener. Just be a good listener who genuinely cares for their every word. As simple as that may sound, it often means the world to them. On the streets, they often feel invisible with no one to hear or feel their pain and struggle.
Many famous people were once homeless and living on the streets. Mega movie-star and singer, Jennifer Lopez was once homeless. As was genius and Apple mastermind, Steve Jobs. Before dying at age 56 in 2011, Steve Jobs recalled those harsh homeless times. At a
commencement speech at Stanford University he gave the homeless a voice and a face: “I would walk the 7 miles across town every Sunday night to get one good meal a week at the Hare Krishna temple.”
Gorgeous movie Oscar-winner, and television producer, Halle Berry, was once homeless when she was first starting her career in Chicago. Such a wretched life can often break the heartiest of souls. It toughened Halle Berry. She would eventually be voted among “The Most beautiful Women in the World.” But, it took its toll. Berry would later confess, “It taught me how to take care of myself and that I could live through any situation, even if it meant going to a shelter for a small stint, or living within my means – which were very meager.” TV talk show host, David Letterman, lived out of his 1973 Chevy pickup truck in Los Angeles. Comedian Jim Carrey was homeless and once lived out of a VW camper. Sylvester Stallone once spent three weeks sleeping at the Port Authority bus station, just to stay warm, fed, and alive. And comedian and TV host of “Family Feud,” Steve Harvey, also was among the homeless and had to live in his 1976 Ford Tempo for three long years, before his big break came. Among Hollywood notables, there is nothing new about homelessness. Such plights go way back, even
among the most illustrious members of the silver screen. Homelessness and hunger knows not discrimination. Silent film star, Charlie Chaplin, had to figure out how to make a living on the streets of London. And it still shocks many film buffs today to find out that Hollywood movie legend, Cary Grant, once slept in alleys when he couldn’t find enough money to stay at a flop-house when he was working on the military docks! I often give to the homeless which I spy here and there, as I drive about the Escondido area. Some

with prosthetic limbs. Some veterans. I do not advocate others to emulate my actions. I am not a mind-reader, nor am I the infallible good judge of character.
I remember one day, which I shall long possess in my memory banks. It was a particularly hot, humid day outside. Triple digits in North County. I had my ice-cold air conditioner in my car on. I am comfortable, cool, and contented. I had ventured far away from my usual Escondido digs. My car cruises to a stop at a busy intersection. I see familiar faces from the ‘soup kitchen.’ Their plight is not a fabricated one. I’m familiar with their broken lives. And how they were abandoned in their younger years. Left orphaned. I see them once a week when they eat something hot and nourishing. They have temporary housing, so they are not living on the streets. I wave to them and honk my horn.
My car makes a slow U-turn and I cruise up and talk with them. Two girls 18 and 20 and their little brother, age 15. I hand them some money, talk a spell, laugh with them and tell them to be careful. My car starts up and I sit there thinking for a while. Thinking about life. And human suffering. And unending pain in the world. And the emotional
scars that will never heal.
I thought of all these things as I sat, motionless, in my car that day. I glanced one last time in my rearview mirror and saw the three of them standing there. In the hot sun. The two sisters and their baby brother. They knew I was watching them. They were still smiling broadly and waving wildly. I slowly drove off in the comfort of my airconditioned car and I could still see their images getting smaller and smaller in my rearview mirror. I could barely make out their makeshift cardboard sign, in big black letters, which said:
I think that most people have felt they have been behind the “eight ball”. If they have never been so, then at least they have heard of that expression, or of “dealing with a full rack.”
Their images got smaller but I could still see them. Barely. Together. Smiling. Waving wildly to me.
However, having spent a bit of time around England pubs and having drunk my share of pints and quarts, I am familiar with not only billiards but snookers as well.
“Mom told us to wait right here. That was 10 years ago.”
Mahatma Gandhi once said, “Be the change you wish to see in the world.”

Dear Editor: Thank you for pubishing "The Last Flight" again. This time I'll save it. It is a heartwarming story, especially for someone from the Genessee area of beautiful upstate NY. And a family of veterans, WWII & Viet Nam.
I want to add, that even tho I'm a moderate liberal Democrat, I agree, wholeheartedly, with everything Marie Waldron writes in her columns.
I can even laugh at your pokes & jokes about my political party. Some of its members are truly an embarrassment. Thank for a great newspaper. I can support the Computer Factory from personal experience. They are wonderful, honest folks. Sincerely, Tony Haskins Oceanside, CA.

Of course, those two expressions are from the universally popular game of billiards, commonly referred to as pool. I myself, am pretty inept at the sport, but I have always found it fascinating to watch others, including my opponents, convert shot after shot, and not even give me a remote opportunity to make our game anything but a landslide.
Historially, the best that can be surmised is that billiards most likely evolved from a lawn game, possibly similar to croquet, sometime during the 15th century in Northern Europe. Many feel that the game may actually have started in France. The game made its way indoors, and was played with a wooden table with green cloth (which was supposed to simulate grass). A simple border was places around the edges. Balls were shoved, as compared to struck, by wooden sticks called maces.
“Billiard” is derived from the French, either from the word “billart”, one of the wooden sticks, or from the word “bille”, a ball.

Last Flight - More Praise
The author, Friedrich Gomez, presents his 129th cover story for The Paper. This story shows his penchant for in depth research and the conclusions drawn from that data.
Something tells us that Friedrich has yet another story in the works and we’ll hear from him soon!
We LOVE Letters to the Editor! Send them to:
firstname.lastname@example.org Try to keep them to 250 words or less.
Let’s hear what you have to say!
In the 1600s, the public knew enough about the game that Shakespeare mentioned it in Antony and Cleopatra. In the late 1600s, the cue stick was developed. When a ball lay near a rail, the mace was very inconvenient to use because of its large head. Players would then turn the mace around and use its handle to strike the ball. The handle was sometimes called a “queue”, meaning tail. Therefore, the word “cue” was derived, and used the last few hundred years.
Pool tables originally had flat walls for rails, and were only designed to keep balls from falling off. They often resembled river banks, and a “bank shot” was one in which a ball rebounded as part of the shot. Chalk was introduced in the early 1800s, and slate became a popular pool table material in the mid-1800s. The various types of pool games, such as American Four-Ball Billiards, Fifteen-Ball Pool, and others, emerged. Troops during the Civil War held tournaments, and professional players toured military stations giving exhibitions. Cigarette cards were even issued featuring these renowned players. Eight-Ball was introduced shortly after 1900, and is the most wellknown and popular billiards game known to the world.
However, the popularity of the game declined in the 1900s until 1961, when the movie “The Hustler,” starring Paul Newman, depicted the somber life of a pool hustler. Suddenly, pool was back in the spotlight. The sequel to “The Hustler” was released in 1986, as Paul Newman and Tom Cruise both starred in “The Color of Money.” It brought the excitement of pool to a new generation. The game has continued to increase in popularity to this day. In addition, collectors have been known to spend thousands of dollars on pool equipment as well.
In a 2008 Heritage Auction, Glenn Ford’s pool table was auctioned. Evidently, the actor Glenn Ford spent countless hours playing on his Brunswick table against such Hollywood celebrities as John Wayne, Frank Sinatra, Richard Burton, William Holden, Roy Rogers, and others. The auctioned table went for nearly $8000. Another Heritage item fetched a lot more in 2012. A worldrenowned Jacob Strahle Inlaid Pocket Billiards Table from 1875 went for almost $19000. Yes, the game of billiards, which has been played by people from all walks of life from kings and presidents to pool hustlers and domestic engineers is, and has been for centuries, a game of the masses.

Vista Unified School is Turning 3rd Grade Students into Leaders Through STEM Teaching - Kid Spark Education has partnered with The San Diego Foundation to maximize the impact of its philanthropy and help more schools utilize its STEM education model. Through the Kid Spark Education Fund at The San Diego Foundation, the organization plans to provide its program and training to at least 20 more San Diego classrooms by fall 2019. Studies show that children who experience STEM education (science, technology, engineering and math) early on will be best equipped in understanding STEM concepts later in their academic career. One local teacher is having success bring STEM teaching and hands-on activities to his students. Robert Crowell, 3rd Grade Teacher at Vista Unified, and Jena Olson, Executive Director, Kid Spark Education, agree that the earlier we integrate STEM lessons into children’s daily curriculum, the better chance our youth will develop a stronger understanding of these skills, as
well as cultivate a future interest. While most STEM programs are associated with high school and college-level development, Kid Spark Education is a nonprofit bringing STEM training and tools to elementary school students in San Diego County. Vista Unified is the first school system to adopt the Kid Spark Emerging Engineers model, which pairs philanthropy with underserved schools to help students who need it most. Kid Spark Education, through their partnership with The San Diego Foundation, plans to provide its program and training to at least 20 more San Diego County classrooms by fall 2019. Elementary schools interested in receiving a grant to participate in the Kid Spark Emerging Engineers program can apply at https://go.kidsparkeducation.org/emerging-engineers-san-diego.

brag.” It is important lesson about the church.
Pastor Tom Fry (Retired) Church of the Nazarene
Last month my grandson and I rode the train to visit his big brother at his university. When his parents took him there last fall, he knew six people on the whole campus. And all of them were from Escondido. And since they are all different majors, they seldom see each other. He played in the marching band last fall and made friends. As he walked us around campus, he was greeted by or greeted lots of people. This trip he introduced us to a lot of people who weren’t in the band. Some were from his dorm, some in his classes, but a lot of them he met at the church he started attending in his college home town. The weekend we were there, he was part of the worship team, playing the drums. This is not just a “proud grandpa
There are a lot of good reasons to attend church. The Bible says, “Let us not give up meeting together...” (Hebrews 10:25). Around this statement, the text says that “meeting together,” being part of a church encourages others and spurs others on to good deeds. My grandson told me one reason he likes his “away from home” church, “I’ve met people here who have no connection to the university.”
Relocating can be difficult, especially the first time. It’s easy to roll up in a ball and isolate yourself from the new. From the unfamiliar. Even if you want to try, where do you start? Many of the choices fall below the line of “good choices.” Meeting new people and making new friends may be an “unintended consequence” of attending church, but it is a good choice with a positive outcome.
Don’t forsake meeting together, worshipping together, just because you’re away from home or have moved to a new location. Find a church. Find a friend.

San Marcos • Mayor Rebecca Jones Construction Projects in San Marcos!
After completing all designs and securing approval by the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans), residents will soon see significant improvements underway as construction begins in San Marcos. After clearing the area surrounding San Marcos Creek south of San Marcos Boulevard wrapped up in February, construction is expected break ground this fall on two new bridges that will span Bent Avenue and Via Vera Cruz. Enhancements will include the widening of Discovery Street to four lanes between Bent Avenue and Via Vera Cruz; a new four-lane bridge spanning the creek on Via Vera Cruz; and a two-lane bridge on Bent Avenue. A promenade park, bike and pedestrian amenities will also be added. Expected to take about three years to complete, there will be notable impacts to nearby residents, schools, businesses and commuters.
This summer, an outreach effort will kick-off to make sure residents and businesses are informed, know where to get information and know how to get questions answered. The City will be reaching out early and often to keep you updated on road closures, construction impacts and overall project progress.
Ultimately, this work will relieve long-standing flooding issues, improve traffic flow and support habitat conservation efforts all while providing new recreation opportunities. To learn more about these improvements, visit www.sanmarcos.net/creekbridges or email me at email@example.com. To receive emailed notifications, visit www.san-marcos.net/alerts and select “Creek Bridge Project.”
Escondido • Mayor Paul “Mac” Mcnamara Greetings Escondido,
In the past couple weeks, I’ve discussed the Public Transportation debate. Another debate on the horizon that is somewhat related is housing. The region has a mandate to build so many units from the state and the region is already behind. A unit can be anything from an apartment to a high-end home. Land is zoned to accommodate a certain number of units based on a fixed area. So, you will hear people talk about density. What they mean is how many units per fixed area. When you think about it, what you build and the density of the build changes the character of the area. So, it is another area that requires public input. One that is coming up is what type of building should replace the old hospital. That decision is not simple because there are variables that affect that decision. As an example, the higher you go the more it costs, so a developer has to do a market analysis to see what will the market bear. As I’ve mentioned before, don’t believe simple solutions to complicated problems. They sound good but don’t really exist. I would ask that you attend our public hearings and give us your input. Thank you. Semper Fi,

Move over Cassandra!
In Greek Mythology, Cassandra was the beautiful daughter of King Priam and Queen Hecuba of Troy. Apollo wanted her as his lover and as an inducement offered to her the gift of true prophesies. Cassandra accepted the gift but then backed out of the deal. Apollo knew that a gift once given (by a God) cannot be revoked, so he exacted his revenge with a curse. Although Cassandra retained the gift of true prophesy, Apollo’s curse was that absolutely no one would ever believe a word Cassandra said. Cassandra is doomed to forever wander telling everyone the truth and having no one believe

As Mrs. Kaesler reminded us, Wreaths is not about wreaths but about Remember-Honor-Teach. Remember our fallen veterans; Honor those who serve; Teach our children the value of freedom. Mrs. Kaesler had the honor of being chosen to go to Wreaths headquarters in Columbia Falls, Maine. A tour of the balsam forests where the trees are grown, picking a family tree in honor of her fallen son, Jeffrey, and a visit to the site of the newest National Cemetery being built on Wreaths land were some highlights of her trip. Regent, Charla Boodry, and 1st Vice Regent, Laura Horn, presented Mrs. Kaesler with a certificate of Appreciation.
