It was April, 1865. The War was over. Twelve year old Jim and his grandfather had a friendly wrestle over the smalltown newspaper that had found its way to their kitchen table. The old man was the winner.
“It says here they're done settin' up a schedule for the death train. Looks like when Mr. Lincoln will be comin' through Pickaway it'll be about midnight.” The old man traced his knotted finger down the page, then lay the newspaper across his lap, satisfied that Pickaway would be honored to see the train pass. Jim's grandfather always pronounced the town's name like that, Pickaway. Jim knew better than to correct Grandpa Joe's speech. He had tried it once, after he got into school, and been roundly sounded out. “You leave your grandpa Joe be,” his mother had chided. “He's been talkin' a lot longer than you and it ain't done him no harm!”
Jim cringed even further at the reprimand, knowing that his mother's speech was just as awful as her father's. Truth was, he had learned to pronounce it another way, the way it was spelled; Piqua, PickWah, and he hated that nearly everyone in his family mispronounced their own town's name. Grandpa Joe declared that if goin' to school was goin' to make Jim so uppity, maybe he'd do just as well to stay out on the farm, like regular folks. He also added, speaking directly to Jim, “You are pert near as tall as your brother was already. We kin use you.”
Jim was growing, getting big enough to be of real help on the farm they rented outside of town. They were counting on him more and more to watch the animals, bring in some crops and soon, to pitch hay from the high loft. That was nice, knowing he was one day going to be a good sized man, like his dad. But, he sure wasn't going to talk like his dad, or his mother, or any other living relative he knew. That was one reason he admired Mr. Lincoln. Old Abe The Paper - 760.747.7119
was weaned in the back country, but came out giving speeches that rang on, even after his death. Jim had read the words, studied them out and memorized some of them. Like everyone else, he admired the address given at Gettysburg. He liked the fact that Lincoln was also a joker. He had heard and read so many conflicting reports, listened in on conversations down at the feed store, he could practically write an essay on Lincoln's life. At least, he daydreamed about it. Now, it seemed, the fallen Lincoln would pass through his own town. But, at midnight? You can't really see much at midnight along the train tracks.
At the mention of the funeral train, Jim's mother excused herself and went to the April garden. She had been working hard out there; digging, turning earth, hoeing rows and pulling dead winter grass. Jim knew she worked extra long hours trying to kill her worst sorrow. Thomas, his brother, had perished at Tazwell, Tennessee, only eighteen years
old, and always her pride. Jim missed Thomas terribly himself. Life would never be the same with him gone.
“What day?” Jim asked. “How long will it take for the train to get here?”
“Well, let's see. The train's already comin'. It left on the 21st of the month (this bein' April), and is makin' its way west. Looks like it's snakin' all over tarnation. It's goin' to be another week afore it gets here.” Another week? How could the boy stand that long a wait? “You think we'll get to look on him?” Jim asked his grandfather.
“Laws! I don't suppose I want to look on him! I read where undertakers have to keep puttin' ice around him, and cover the remains with flowers to keep the smell down. He's bein' embalmed all along the way, don't you know.” Hearing his hero spoken of in such a way disgusted Jim. It was enough that a bullet had
laid him low, but to think of such a long journey for Abraham Lincoln in an ongoing state of decomposition was sickening. He had seen rotting animals before and smelled awful odors when rats died under the house. “I gotta go,” he said, and headed for the feed mill. Maybe he would find better reports down there, or maybe he could spend a nickle on some molasses candy at the general store. “Be home by five,” his mother called as he passed by. “Yes ma'am,” he answered respectfully and ambled toward town. Going to Town
On his way to the feed store Jim saw the timetable for the funeral train posted on a storefront. Hours before it was scheduled to come to Piqua, it would pass through the state's capitol in Columbus. It gave him some shivers of pride to think that his town was on the route, out here in western Ohio, far from Washington

D.C. Jim also stopped to stare at the wanted posters showing the portraits of three conspirators who were wanted for the assassination. Centered was the image of John Wilkes Booth, the man who had gunned down Jim's champion. One hundred thousand dollars was offered in reward for the capture of these villains. The boy wondered what he might do if he were to see the despised Booth in person. He fidgeted with a penknife in his pocket, but let go of the brief thought about what damage might be done with it. It was an unworthy thought, he decided, and his mind turned to Thomas, who had entrusted the knife to him.
Moving down the street, he studied the many posters bearing President Lincoln's image. The President was not what anybody might call a handsome man, even Jim knew that. “Somebody beat him with a ugly stick,” Grandpa Joe had observed more than once. “He cain't even grease that thatch of hair down on a bet.” Jim's mother had tried to stop her father from such commentary, especially when Jim was around, but Grandpa Joe had a mind of his own and a penchant for outrageous speech.
Give Us This Day Our Daily Chuckle
“Don't pay no mind,” she would say to her boy. Then, turning again to her father, “There's no call to insult a man in high office like that in front of the boy. Leave him make up his own mind.”
Jim had already made up his own mind. Maybe one day he could do something as glorious and noble as Mr. Lincoln had done. Maybe he could raise himself up to be more than a farm boy when he was grown. Whittling
Jim took a natural interest in the whittling of wood. It had started when he was only about the age of six. He had watched Thomas make carvings of animals and begged to be shown how to do it. Thomas started his little brother off in soap. “That way,” said Thomas, “When you're finished, you just swish your hands around in the water bucket and, bang! You're all cleaned up!” Thomas was exceptionally good at carving and began challenging himself by making larger objects. One of his best was a small version of a Henry rifle. “A man can shoot all 15 shots of the Henry in about a dozen seconds. That's something, Squirt. Not good for buffalo hunts, I read, but there ain't many buffalo around here anyway.”
Impressed, the woman asked for his business card. Three months later, became his stepmother.
Women are so much better at financial planning than men. $5 Bet
This week, a compendium of wit, wisdom and neat stuff you can tell at parties. Enjoy! Financial Planning
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."
Husband takes the wife to a disco. There's a guy on the dance floor living it large, break dancing, moon walking, back flips, the works. The wife turns to her husband and says, "See that guy? 25 years ago he proposed to me and I turned him down."
Husband says: "Looks like he's still celebrating!"
$5 says you will be retelling this story . . . Avocados
A wife asks her husband, "Could you please go shopping for me and buy one carton of milk and if they have avocados, get 6.” A short time later the husband comes back with 6 cartons of milk.
The wife asks him, "Why did you buy 6 cartons of milk?"
While Jim did not appreciate being called 'Squirt,' he knew Thomas meant it in jest and it was a small price to pay to be working around his older brother. He could tolerate 'Squirt' just fine. In time, Jim graduated from soap to soft wood, and managed some passable carvings of his own. Feeling that his did not measure up to Thomas's fine work, he got a muslin bag for storing his menagerie of figures. He only showed them occasionally to family members, and then, with some reluctance. “Don't be ashamed of your work,” Grandpa Joe had said. “Even God created some critters that are funny lookin'”
His mother came to Jim's defense immediately. “That is a left-handed compliment if ever I heard one. Best keep that kinda praise to yerself!” Jim thought it was strange how his mother could snap back at her father and if he did it, he got his head bit off.
When Thomas enlisted to go to war, he took Jim aside and handed him his favorite whittling knife. “I don't guess I'll have time to sit and carve when I'm carrying a real rifle. You keep this close and save it for when I get back.” Jim made a solemn promise to keep it honed and clean until then.
“You can bet it'll never rust out or be lost. I swear.” At the Feed Store
It was not a long walk to the feed store and mill. An April breeze played around the blooming lilacs and filled his nose with that fresh, sweet smell. It should have been a happy time in Piqua, but there were heavy events being pondered and sorrowful words being said. Jim usually liked listening to the talk at the feed store and now, he hoped that there might be some interesting exchanges between the farmers and mill hands. The men often argued politics, or complained about the price of feed, or shared the latest gossip. They were far and away more interesting than the women. Today their words fell all around the subject of the late president's traveling companion, his son Willy. Willy, who would have been just about Jim's age, had died three years before, and his remains rode the train with Abe's. “It don't seem right,” said one of the men. “They dug him up twice already so crazy Mary could look at him again.”
“Well, if the president didn't want it done, it wouldn't a been

The next day Meg went shopping. Her phone rang and, to her astonishment, it was her husband on the other end.
Meg replied, "I just love it! It's so small and your voice is clear as a bell, but there's one thing I don't understand though..." "How did you know I was at Wal-Mart?" HE MUST PAY...

done. Still, yep. It's right strange.”
Jim tried to feature life without his own last three years. He would have been only nine years old at the time. The thought of himself being buried and dug up three times gave him the crawling goose flesh. He tried to dismiss it immediately. And more speculations on dead bodies was not what Jim wanted to hear. Thomas's body had never returned for proper burial, a thing which caused sore heartache to the family. Jim left off listening to the men and continued along the dusty street. It seemed that wherever he went, his mind wandered back to thoughts of Thomas. Every time he whittled, he felt Thomas beside him. When his mother labored in cold silence in the garden, he imagined Thomas coming down the road, and her running to meet him. He still clung to some hope that the message had been wrong, that his happy, joshing big brother was just missing somewhere in the woods of Tennessee. Walking near the railroad station, he saw adults standing
back and sizing up the building. There was talk of where and how the bunting should be hung, discussion about the singers, the orators and the band. Apparently, the fact that the train was supposed to arrive at midnight did not put any dampers on the people's enthusiasm for tribute. It was that way everywhere the train chugged across the country. Jim would read about the ceremonies, simple and grand, that greeted the deceased president. Soon, he would take part in the communal grief that was poured out all across the land.
Listening to the hubbub and commotion, Jim wondered what he might do to contribute. He was no singer, for sure, and only one of many who might have wanted to play some part in the ceremonies. He guessed that just being there to honor Mr. Lincoln would have to do. It was only later when his grandfather spoke of the bonfires lining the tracks at night that he had a deep and solemn thought. “The people put up stacks of kindlin' and fuel higher than a man stands and add whatever they can to keep the fires a-burnin',” his grandfather had said. Later, the crackling and roar of flames in the night, the intensity of the heat, would prove to be unlike anything Jim had ever seen.
During that week before the funeral train arrived, Jim tried his hand at a carving of the President. It was harder than he thought it might be. The hair was certainly no problem, but the proportions of the face proved to be difficult. And which side of the face bore the big mole? Had Lincoln ever smiled? Were his eyes really sunk so deep in his head? Jim had never tried to pare human eyes from the capricious wood before. At length, he gave it up, deciding to wait until he was more skilled. Still, he put it in the muslin bag that housed his efforts, to save for later. True Sacrifice
Just before 12:30 am, far up the tracks, the eerie headlamp was glimpsed from the north and the long wail of the whistle was carried on the night air. Military officers and infantry alike, removed hats and stood dumb-struck at the coming of the funeral train. Grown men wept, and women clutched at their weary childrens shoulders. “Remember this,” he heard one say to her little boy. “You will not ever be sorry you gave up a few hours of sleep for this night.” Never had Jim seen such reverence and awe. He himself was profoundly moved by the mournful moment of the train's arrival. The locomotive seemed
monstrously oversized and, slowing down, it hissed white and searing steam. The enormous cow-catcher on the engine's front fanned out, seemingly sweeping away any obstacle in the death train's path. The black and laboriously decorated funeral car tugged at its coupling, looking sad and weighty. Its many windows, from which Mr. Lincoln and Willy could not see, were draped above and below with crape and it was decorated with an elaborate cartouche featuring the mighty bald eagle. Before the brief program unfolded, a stunned silence pervaded the crowd. Jim knew there must have been thousands of mourners present. But, most impressive in the boy's mind were the bonfires. For personal reasons, this one, in Pickaway, would forever be a part of him. The Piqua fires burned so brightly and there were so many raised along the tracks that the whole countryside seemed to be bathed in hot light. People had piled chairs and old cupboards, winter wood stores and planks, added dead wood and kindling to build the bonfires for Lincoln. Out in the countryside, mourners lined the lonely tracks, watching the ghostly cortege

The City of Escondido is pleased to reopen Kit Carson Park for the public’s use. The Recreation Department is resuming all regularly scheduled programs and activities, including youth league practices and tournaments at Kit Carson Park, effective Thursday, May 22, 2014.
With last week’s fire event and subsequent evacuations, CalFire requested the use of Kit Carson Park as a base camp to provide emergency services to the areas affected by the fires. Since the fires are now contained and all evacuations have been lifted, the CalFire base camp has been disassembled. “The collaboration between the City and CalFire proved to be an excellent service to the community,” Director of Library and Community Services Loretta McKinney said. “People have been patient and understanding during last week’s park closures and the Recreation Department is happy to announce that Kit Carson Park is once again open for the community’s enjoyment!” For questions about specific programs and activities, call the Community Services Department at 760-839-4691 or the Escondido Sports Center at 760-839-5425.

Readers, you know how there are some words that you’ll see time and again in literature but never hear in real-life conversation?
Well, I want to thank Kirk Effinger for giving me the opportunity to use two such words which he so definitively characterized in writing the above referenced rant... 'Pompous' and ‘Elitist’ describe this rant. Notably, I call it a rant because it does not qualify as an article, nor does it demonstrate the qualities of an editorial as his opinion is not informed by points of fact or quantified by statistics.

I take issue with this rant on several levels. You don’t see corporate executives on mass transit? Well let me tell you that (God forbid) this community were to adhere to the pontifications on economic growth that you spewed in a subsequent diatribe (‘Development Isn’t A Four Letter Word’), you will find yourself standingroom-only shoulder to shoulder with lots and lots of corporate execs on the Sprinter. Just like they do everyday in New York City.
No one that works in Manhattan drives to work. It would take hours to get where you’re going. And then, where would you park? It’s costs $45 a day for a reserved space to leave your car sitting idle for eight hours and there’s a waiting list for this privilege. And that’s what your unbridled growth will lead us, (assuming you could magically conjure sufficient water to sustain the growth you envision.)

Is he either so naive or stupid as to not realize that someone must pay for all that "free stuff!" I'd be willing to bet that he does not work "over there" and lets the system take care of him.
It may work there, but for how long, it's that thinking that has lead to the collapse of how many economies in Europe.

I will be accompanying Jack to the D-Day remembrance in Normandy this year. We leave next Friday. I would love to honor Jack by sending a recap of everything that we participate in while abroad.
Since this is the 70th anniversary, it is in all likelihood the last 10-year mark that will include living veterans. Jack has us on all the VIP lists for dignitaries (including President Obama, sadly on his first visit to the ceremony) and as of Monday, Jack accepted an invitation by Helen Patton, the granddaughter of General George Patton, to skydive with a group of veterans over Utah Beach.

his profound respect for Lincoln and perhaps link him to his fallen brother, and to Willy, the other mystifying young passenger. He guessed he wanted to contribute to the light that accompanied Abraham's and Willy's journey.
In simple words he confided this wish to his mother. “I only have these to add to the bonfire.” He pulled the muslin bag from under his bed and examined the contents closely. His mother questioned his decision. “Air you sure you want to do this?” she asked, her words caught up in her throat. She had watched her son labor over many of those figures and felt his strong connection to Thomas as he carved. This idea was nearly unimaginable to her. “I'm sure,” Jim responded. “It looks like he gave a lot more

One goal of this holiday was to educate civilians on the service provided by our armed forces in defending our nation.

Fire Strikes Again
Our region has now suffered through three disastrous region-wide wildfires since 2003. That year, the Cedar and Paradise fires resulted in the deaths of 16 people and destroyed 2,427 homes and businesses. In 2007, the Witch Creek and Harris fires destroyed 1,500 homes and killed 9 people. This May, as a result of unseasonable heat and high winds, San Diego County was ravaged by nine separate fires, including the Cocos, Highway and Tomahawk fires that burned portions of San Marcos, Escondido, Fallbrook and Bonsall. During the recent firestorms, approximately 65 homes were destroyed; 36 of those in San Marcos and unincorporated areas near Escondido. Throughout the emergency, the professionalism, expertise and cooperation of our first responders from multiple state, county and local agencies was exem-

plary. Though many homes were lost and, tragically, at least one person died, the numbers were few compared to past fires. Lessons learned from previous fires, including the need for defensible space around buildings, helped save countless lives and homes this time around. We live in a dangerous region, with ever-present threats of wildfires and earthquakes. Unfortunately, should El Nino end the drought by returning next winter, fire ravaged hillsides may experience devastating floods and mudslides. It goes without saying that San Diegans need to be prepared and vigilant at all times.

It’s not as though this tactic has never been used. There was a citizen review committee assembled to help draw up the city’s amended General Plan, for instance. Escondido Leaders Would do Well to Listen to their Constituents
For the life of me, I don’t understand Escondido city leader’s aversion to informed citizen input.
I’m not talking so much about people attending city council meetings or public meetings of the various city commissions. While these are certainly an opportunity for everyday citizens to speak out on issues they are personally concerned about, they frankly tend to be overwhelmingly dominated by whoever is opposed to whatever is being proposed at the moment. What I am talking about is the
And there was the commission formed to draw the boundaries for the new council districts, albeit reluctantly.
By most accounts, the results of these efforts were fairly successful, and resulted in a general approval of the ultimate outcome.
The city’s neighbor to the west, San Marcos, has enjoyed great success in garnering citizen acceptance—and no shortage of good ideas in the process— for any number of issues laid before them. From award-winning specific plan areas, to affordable housing standards, and even the city’s budget process, residents there have

The Port Chicago Disaster & Mutiny
One of the greatest single catastrophes during World War II didn’t occur on any battlefield, but alongside a dock in Northern California. The July 17, 1944, disaster at Port Chicago Naval Magazine killed 320 sailors and civilians, with another 390 injured and maimed.
The incident caused a racial controversy because most of those killed or injured were African-American sailors acting as stevedores loading munitions headed for the Pacific. At the heart of the controversy was a charge of “unsafe” loading and handling procedures by the Navy. With

After almost 2,000 acres were charred from the devastating Cocos Fire in San Marcos and Harmony Grove, Cal Fire now reports the fires have been 100 percent contained.
County officials closed the recovery office at the library at 2 Civic Center Drive in San Marcos as of 5 p.m. last Friday.
County staff will continue to operate a recovery hotline (619) 929-4736, and monitor email at: CountyFireRecovery@sdcounty.ca. gov, from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. San Marcos Thank You Event This Saturday
City and school officials have scheduled a community event this Saturday, May 31st, to thank first responders. The community will have a chance to recognize and thank those who beat back the horrific fires that forced San Marcos evacuations and property losses earlier this month. The celebration will run from

no procedural changes, a month after the disaster hundreds of black sailors refused to continue loading. Courtmartials ensued, convicting the “Port Chicago 50” African-American sailors. The media dubbed it the “Port Chicago Mutiny.”
The town of Port Chicago, which no longer exists, was located just north of Concord on the south shore of Suisun Bay in the estuary of the Sacramento and San Joaquin rivers. Munitions being loaded included bombs, artillery shells, naval mines, torpedoes, and small-arm ammunition. Munitions came by rail from all across the United States. Each piece was unloaded by hand from rail cars and put onto cargo ships. Enlisted men who were assigned to the dangerous task were all black with white officers. To add to the controversy, the young sailors, who had trained at the Great Lakes Naval Training Center, were assigned to Port Chicago as stevedores with no safety training for the work. The top scoring 30 percentage of boot camp graduates were selected to go to the fleet; the remaining low-scoring sailors

than some whittlings for the country. It's something I can do.” He reflected on how Thomas had given more than shaved wood as well.
Later, standing as close as he dared to the flaming tower, Jim pulled out the muslin bag that carried his treasured carvings. He could feel the shape and size of each and knew exactly which was which. His first wood whittling, a bear, had been clumsily done, but it was among his favorites. The swan, more sophisticated and elegant was one of his newest. In all, there were twenty works of boyish art that comprised his collection. His sheep dog, the goose, a rabbit, even a lamb were part of his treasures. His most prized he had left at home; the Henry 44 that Thomas had carved. He would not give that one up to the bonfire, no, not ever.
He listened to the singing of the large choir that stood on the platform and the shuffling of onlookers inching closer to the train. If he were really to offer his contributions to illuminate the dark night, he would have to do it quickly. Taking a deep breath, he whispered, with tears in his eyes, some for Lincoln and Willy, some for Thomas, and some for these souvenirs of his boyhood. “This is not much, Mr. Lincoln, in fact it's about all I have. But, this is for you, and Willy, and for Thomas.” Then, he heaved the muslin bag through the air, and watched it disappear into the bonfire. A brief flash rose up as his treasures became one with the inferno and soon

enough they were joined with the ashes.
Whether it was the heat or the loss that burned Jim's eyes, he could not guess. He supposed it was both that caused the salty moisture to slide down his cheeks and brought on that tingling in his wrists as his hands hung empty at his sides. Through stinging tears he watched the flames lick the darkness beside the tracks and heard the music faintly drift over the living fire. Jamming his hands into his pockets, he gripped the whittling knife Thomas had entrusted to him. Then, turning around, he found himself enveloped in his mother's arms, and felt her body tremble with new grief and pride.
They had both given much for the cause, she and he. When the engine pulled out and the embers died down, every man, woman and child walked away into his or her own history. This night would be remembered and the experience repeated for generations to come. “I was there.” “My grandfather was there.” “We saw it for ourselves.”

The memory of that April midnight would stay with Jim until he was an old, old man. He would still feel the heat of the bonfire and recall the emptiness in his hand after throwing the muslin bag into the flames. And somewhere, beyond his small boyhood sacrifice, he would still see Thomas, smiling at him, calling him 'Squirt' and telling him to take care of the knife. About the Author:
On the living room floor of an Ohio walk up apartment some years ago, Barbara came forth a squalling new infant on the pages of the Halloween edition of the Columbus Dispatch. For lack of a crib, she spent baby time in an empty dresser drawer. These events no doubt account for her interest in the written word and a slight case of claustrophobia. While growing up in the Midwest, drawing in the margins of her Childcraft books and composing less than free verse, Barbara learned early that a good sense of humor will see you a long way through life. Barbara has been an illustrator and editor and a participant in many humanitarian efforts, often using her ability to defend herself in Spanish.
After nearly fifty years of marriage, she acknowledges her husband as her biggest fan, her children as her greatest achievements. She also gives credit to her hair stylist, Kay Brock; her dentist, Dr. Mike Van Leeuwen, and her orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Kim Bertin. Without these people, she would not be the woman she is today.
Superior Court Judge Office 25 - Ken Gosselin
(All Other Superior Court Judge Positions are unopposed).
The Paper makes no endorsements or recommendations on elected positions where no opposition exists. Barbara is the author of three published works; The Golden Verses, The Lost Verses and a post-Civil War novel, Jesse's Highway. Three unpublished books are lurking in her computer.

Malware (virus, spyware etc.) infections often evade your PCs protection software by sending in a “Trojan Horse” to disable PC defenses and open a “backdoor” for the bad guys to enter. The “Trojan Horse” needs your help to get into your PC so it disguises itself as something that attracts your interest or looks like something you need. For example; you’re downloading an E-mail attachment and get a prompt saying “you need to update your Adobe Reader in order to open this attachment, click here to update” That is not Adobe; it’s a “Trojan Horse.” If you’re suspicious and close it by clicking the X they may still get you.

Equally unfortunate, my wife is like most women - she loves to browse. Yesterday my dear wife received the following letter from the local Target: Dear Mrs. Harris,
Over the past six months, your husband has caused quite a commotion in our store. We cannot tolerate this behavior and have been forced to ban both of you from the store.
Our complaints against your husband, Mr. Harris, are listed below and are documented by our video surveillance cameras:
When you suspect a phony invitation, press the CTRL, ALT, DEL keys simultaneously. When the Task Manager box appears, click the APPLICATIONS tab and “END TASK” on any suspicious program. If there are no suspicious programs in APPLICATIONS, turn off your PC and restart it. Then run your Spyware scan program (Spybot, Malwarebytes etc). Scareware is a form of malware that tries to get you to do something stupid by warning you that if you don’t do what it tells you to do, something bad will happen. Phony virus warnings are an example. The FBI and DOJ Ransom viruses are clever and nasty examples. They lurk near Internet sites and pounce when you visit the site. They lock your PC and announce that you’ve been caught in an illegal act. They demand hundreds of dollars (by money card) within 72 hours or you face prosecution. If you think you might have actually done something wrong you may be tempted to pay rather than take a chance. Bad decision.
Users need to be diligent about security updates for the Windows operating system and third party applications like Java, Reader, Acrobat, Flash, Real Player and others. Check each of these websites for security updates monthly. Check your anti-virus security suite regularly to make sure it’s on, updated and scanning daily. Run your anti-spyware scan once a week. If you do all these things there is an excellent chance that you won’t get hit. If you suspect you have an infection you need to deal with it ASAP. Allowing malware to remain in your PC can corrupt
your operating system. Here at The Computer Factory an infected PC can usually be cleaned for $90 but if we need to replace a corrupt operating system and save user files the cost will be $135. ‘A stitch in time” as they say. DO NOT FALL FOR RADIO AND TV ADs LIKE “SPEED COUNTS” They cost money and usually don’t work.
Microsoft’s latest infection survey shows XP to have lower malware infection rates than either Win Vista or Win 7. XP users still using Internet Explorer should switch to Google Chrome or Mozilla. We also recommend switching from MS Security Essentials to Avast. While Security Essentials still fully supports XP, Microsoft has started using it to flash annoying messages aimed at scaring users into buying upgrades.

your report. Our very best wishes to you and our good friend and great patriot, Jack Port. Bon Voyage! Re: Tom Morrow’s Column
I renewed my interest in the Rosenbergs after reading a column by Alan Dershowitz published July 19, 1995, in the LATimes. He states that he was told by Roy Cohn (a less than savory sort), who was a junior prosecutor, that the FBI and Justice conspired with Judge Kaufman. Evidence was “enhanced” to get Julius and Ethel as to avoid revealing that we had been decrypting many Soviet intelligence messages.
In your recent column, you point out what would appear to be a disparate, harsh sentence ... death in the chair for both Julius and Ethyl. In my view, our government did not want Julius to die; they wanted him to talk. He would be of great interest because he was violating a basic tenet of spycraft: Spies do not handle other spies. The Feds brought out the classic carrot and stick approach. David Greenglass, who was the actual thief of Los Alamos secrets, agreed to a 30 year sentence(he would do 10) but his wife Ruth, who by many accounts was more involved than Ethel, would not be tried and would remain free to raise their two children. David fingers his sister, Ethyl. The Feds now charge Julius and Ethyl with espionage and raise the stakes asking for the death penalty The Rosenberg boys would have to face growing up under the cloud of their parent’s activities. Julius reacts by taking himself and his wife to the chair, leaving the boys to face their problems. And, I suspect, the Feds stunned, and in a way, out-smarted. Why did Julius do this? A supremely dedicated communist? In my view, he simply would not, could not tell on his fellow comrade spies. Which is worse? Betraying your country or your friends? Same issue in the Hollywood Blacklist controversy. In a way, Julius was a real stand-up guy, even though a traitor.

And why do I have to push button 1 if I want to listen in English?) ••••• Told good friend, Nami Taghipour, owner of Escondido Pharmacy on E. Valley Parkway in Escondido, about a comment another good friend, brilliant chiropractor and fellow Kiwanian, Dr. Steve Heilman told me. Steve had said, “to get rid of calluses, take one part of water, one part of white vinegar and one part of mouth wash, such as Listerine, and soak your feet, or hands, wherever you have calluses . . . for about 15 minutes at a time, 2 or 3 times a week. The calluses will soften and, in a short time, disappear.” Evelyn and I both tried it . . . it works! Nami nodded and said, “yes, this is one of many folk medicine remedies that may well work. Much of today’s pharmacy products came from folk medicine remedies. Aspirin, for example, is derived from the bark of the willow tree.” Nami promised to provide me with similar pharmaceutical products that ‘came from the past’ for use in future columns.

‘Tom Morrow’ Cont. from Page 7
were sent to Port Chicago to do the labor-intensive work. Black sailors assigned to Port Chicago were considered by their officers to be “unreliable,” “emotional,” lacking the ability to understand and remember orders.
Leading the recruits were black petty officers, who later were described as being “slave drivers,” and “Uncle Toms.” Many of the white officers were newcomers to the Navy with little or no training in supervising enlisted men, although the Navy considered them adequate for this job.
Officers managed 100-man crews. They created competition by waging which crew could load the most tonnage in the shortest period of time. With no safety control, it was a recipe for disaster.
On July 13, 1944, the USS Bryan docked with 5,292 barrels of heavy fuel for the trip across the Pacific. After four days of round-the-clock loading, the ship was nearly 40 percent loaded. At 10:18 p.m. on July 17, witnesses later reported a loading boom crashed to the dock, igniting an explosive. UC Berkeley reported two shock waves measuring 3.4 on the Richter scale.
Of the 320 dead personnel, only 50 could be identified. After the convictions of the “Port Chicago 50,” because of public pressure, the Navy reconvened the court-martial board. The board reaffirmed the convictions, however, by January 1946, some 47 of the 50 were freed, with the remaining three released several months later. One of the results coming out of the Port Chicago disaster/mutiny was the Navy’s “desegregation” of the fleet.
This is a mere highlight of the entire story.

JD can be shy, but it only takes a couple minutes for his gentle personality to come out. Then he’s ready to sit, shake hands, or get in the car and go to the beach. JD is a perfect “family dog.” His previous owners surrendered him to RCHS when they could no longer care for him. The $145 adoption fee for JD includes medical exam, vaccinations, neuter, and microchip.

The Pastor Says . . .
Psychologists call them “triggers.” Sensory experiences that evoke memories. Though some people experience negative triggers, mine are almost always positive.
Pastor Tom Fry, Retired, Church of the Nazarene
God’s “Go Bag”
When I was a kid, the school was a couple blocks from what we called “the furniture factory.” It was long before the EPA and most days the smell of varnish hung over the school and most of the small town where we lived.
Today, when that same varnish smell makes its way into my head, my mind immediately goes back to those days in Illinois. I can see the school, the factory, the Walgreen’s drugstore on the corner and all the good memories of those years.
These days I’m leading a Bible study on the Book of Psalms and I’m finding that a lot of our knowledge of the Psalms centers around verses and not chapters. We are familiar with one or two verses in a Psalm, but don’t know too much about the other verses in the Psalm. Still, that familiar verse serves as a “trigger” to learn more about the Psalm.
These triggers may have been stored away in our memory for a long time. A childhood Sunday School contest to memorize Bible verses, a reading at Church or at a wedding or memorial service. The recent fires have reminded many of us to put together a “go bag” of essentials if we have to evacuate our homes quickly. Triggers that lead us to the scriptures are our “go bag” for life’s uncertainties. A valuable resource that is always ready when we need it.
Check your “go bag.” It may already be packed. There may be more in it than you think. But, if not, open the Word of God and fill it up with His truths.

Summer is on our minds! In Vista, we’re planning many fun activities and events to entertain everyone all summer long.

had an opportunity to shape their city’s future. By creating this level of citizen involvement the city has enjoyed widespread and often enthusiastic agreement with its policies and proposed developments.
So why then have Escondido’s mayor and the city’s administration forged ahead on a charter proposal essentially handed down to its citizens like a tablet on the mount? Do city officials fear their proposal would not bear up under more detailed scrutiny? Or, do they fear someone might have a better idea?
Why have they continued to
picnic and head to the movie series. The best part is that the movies are free. What’s better than sitting out on a blanket on a warm summer night and enjoying a movie in the park with your family? A Summer Fun Fest is planned before the August 9 movie - with jump houses, the Lindley Lopez circus, kid’s booths and more!
June 21: Frozen (G): Buena Vista Ball Fields. July 19: Despicable Me2 (PG): Vista Sports Park. Aug 9: The LEGO Movie (PG) & Summer Fun Fest (3-7 pm): Brengle Terrace Park.
Enjoy your summer and we hope to see you at some of the events.
press forward with their dream of a tech-oriented business park in the downtown industrial zone without a clear plan? Buying the land is one thing. Planning with a purpose in mind is another altogether. And, attempting to thwart other uses that deviate from your dream—like the justapproved county health and social services center—is not a plan. Voting to move forward with a questionable (and ultimately unsuccessful) minor league ballpark and attempting to sell the idea to a skeptical public after the fact—is not a plan.
There are any number of issues within Escondido that could have been, and could be, best dealt with by introducing the transparency of citizen review before they become-
San Marcos • Mayor Jim Desmond Thank you San Marcos!
On behalf of the City council, our hearts go out to the families that have been displaced, to the firefighters and city staff working to keep our City safe, and to the community of San Marcos. While our community has been profoundly impacted by these fires, the spirit of community and cooperation experienced during the fires over the last week was remarkable. Resources came from all over the state to assist us here in San Marcos, but more importantly to the 30,000 residents that received
evacuation warnings last week and heeded our message, thank you. This greatly aided the firefighting effort because the responders were able to focus on fighting the fire rather than rescuing victims. The City of San Marcos and the San Marcos Unified School District invites all residents and business to attend a community appreciation event on Saturday, May 31 from 11 am to 3 pm at Mission Hills High School, 1 Mission Court.
Please visit the City’s website, www.san-marcos.net, for more information.
Oceanside • Mayor Jim Wood O’side Photo Contest
The Oceanside Public Library invites photographers of all ages to participate in the “Growing the Oceanside Community” photography contest. Inspired by the recent remodel of the Mission Branch Library, located at 3861 Mission Avenue, community members are invited to show their interpretation of “growing a community.” The Mission Branch Library décor is not yet complete as the final piece will be a mural created by and for the Oceanside community. The photo contest will determine the image
often contentious government policy. The infamous parking issue of a few years back was one such concern, as was the East Valley Library closing, and a host of others. A little prudence goes a long way in earning goodwill and general acceptance. We elect our leaders to lead. But in a democracy, we also elect them to listen.
