Volume 51 - No. 22

He bought his son a new truck for a graduation gift. Well, actually, the truck isn’t new, it’s a 2008 Silverado 1500, lightly used, with only 72,000 miles. Not a bad deal.
As soon as they bought the vehicle the first thing they did was take it for a long ride along the smooth, scenic rural highways of Alabama. Disney World for Chevy and Ford owners.
The graduate and his dad piled into The Paper - 760.747.7119
the front cab and tore out for the hinterlands. Graduate at the wheel; Dad in the passenger seat, gripping the chicken handle. University of Alabama sticker on the bumper. The graduate did all the things guys are supposed to do when they purchase a truck. He lightly let go of the wheel at medium speed to make sure the steering didn’t pull. He gave the gas pedal a workout.
He made sure the radio was working, although they couldn’t find any theme music. American radio went
downhill a long time ago. There was a time when you could hear Ernest Tubb, Hank Snow, or Spade Cooley on the airwaves. Today, nobody even knows who those guys are.
The graduate kept his window down. The fields of peanuts and cotton whipped by at fifty-five. The kid draped his hand out the window and made an airplane with his flat palm. They stopped at a gas station. His dad got pork rinds and coffee. The

graduate got spicy ghost-pepper beef jerky, the kind that will wreck a man’s bowels for the next nineteen years. Young man’s food. “Can I drive?” said Dad, sounding like a young man himself. “Sure.”
So they switched places. Dad took the wheel and draped his flat palm out the window and made an airplane too.
And he thought about the graduate

beside him. A boy who is older than the others in his graduating class. A kid who finished school much later than scheduled because of a traumatic brain injury during his freshman year, from an accident The doc said the boy would probably never complete an education. The boy had to relearn to walk, to eat, and to use the bathroom. He relearned how to speak, too. And it was Dad who retaught him.
“After a TBI, it’s not just the big things that change,” Dad told me. “It’s little things.” The graduate’s brain was suddenly overwhelmed by the smallest stimulation. Ceiling fans, fluorescent lighting, and distant sounds could cause near panic attacks. Sleep terrors became a thing. Many nights the kid woke up screaming for his father. But enough about that. Because that’s over now, and everyone is feeling good.
All the physical therapy, all the rehab, all the emotional rises and dips. Now he’s in the saddle of a Silverado. A graduate. Unbelievable. The sun blared through the windshield. The view was perfect. The backwoods of the Yellowhammer

State are among the best kept secrets in the U.S. Dad didn’t want the ride to end, so he took a few backroads to prolong it. He doubled back. Tripled back. He cut through hayfields, carved through forests, and zipped past cattle pastures where several pretty gals were standing on a hillside, chewing cud.
Eventually Dad pulled over at a familiar spot. Father and son leapt out of the truck, removed fishing rods from the truck bed, and they were doing the Andy-and-Opie stroll.

Today they work on developing beautiful sunburns. “Thanks, Dad,” the graduate says, mid-hug, his young voice muffled against his dad’s T-shirt. “I love my truck.” Only 72,000 miles. Not a bad deal.

hard work and the heavy reliance upon Common Sense, was able to build such a successful chain of businesses. "I was just looking for opportunity and I didn't see much in Laural, Mississippi. So I left," he says.
It took awhile for him to find his way but he eventually found it. He served as a mail carrier for the US Post Office for a time, entered the Navy and served on board the Ticonderoga, a massive aircraft carrier. After his Navy service he became a real estate agent and then broker in the Riverside/San Bernardino area, eventually building up a chain of seven successful real estate offices. Back in those days, times were bad and the real estate industry was having its ups and downs, very high interest rates, and a large turnover of real estate agents who were unable to sell enough real estate to make a decent living. So Mack began to look for something a little more stable. He sold off his real estate offices and moved to Carlsbad where he opened a real estate loan office, specializing in the secondary market, dealing mostly in second trust deeds. His market then served mostly low income families who couldn't qualify for traditional

mortgages/trust deeds. They were considered 'high risk.' Mack responded to provide funding for this market, ensuring that he had well secured collateral to protect his investment. Meantime, Mack had become interested in collecting coins and jewelry and occasionally dabbled in gold and silver coins and bullion.
A local realtor friend owned a pawn shop in San Diego and worked there part-time. He urged Mack to join him in the pawn busines and although Mack was not interested at first, he agreed to work part-time with his friend and, in so doing, began to learn the pawn business. Even after having learned the nuts and bolts of the pawn business Mack was not all that interested as in investor in a pawn shop but, then, in August of 1993, he agreed to enter the trade and bought his first pawn shop in Oceanside. The bulk of his clientele initially came from Camp Pendleton.
It wasn't long before Mack determined that it was time to upgrade the image of pawn shops. He did not want the image to be the traditional one . . . a dark, cluttered place with a staff member with a green eye shade pulled down over his bifocals . . . and cheap merchandise and jewelry being the stock in trade.
Nope, Mack determined he would remodel his pawn shop to be bright, airy, well organized, with attractive

Our speaker, Rick Elkins, could be described as a near "Renaissance Man." He has written three books, all available on Amazon, which discuss his concerns regarding our political circumstances and suggestions for making improvements. His current book, "The Illusion of Knowledge," discusses why the political theories of Mark and Lenin will fail, even when led by those of "great abilities" and "substantial knowledge." Rick is an artist, author, newspaper columnist, and advertising copywriter; studied media futurist Marshall McLuhan in college; followed his hobby into the snow and waterski industry, and then settled into a thirty-year career in the new home construction business. His literary work explores the media and its growing Group-Think influence. His recent works explore the sycophantic marriage of entertainment and news, our socially neurotic relationship with electronic devices, and the future of America's Great American Social Justice Experiment. He is the author of three books. Rick lives in Escondido, CA, with his wife Cathy.
Main Street Oceanside: As part of National Volunteer Month, Rep. Mike Levin recognized two MainStreet Oceanside volunteers for their outstanding volunteer commitment to Downtown Oceanside. Nominated by MainStreet, Lauren counters and a variety of merchandise from all price ranges in jewelry . . .from low cost to mid range to luxury items like diamonds, rings, Rolex watches. He completely remodeled the office, upgraded the inventory and was now able to serve not only lower income clientele but business people as well. From time to time small businesses run into cash shortages and a short term loan in the form of a pawn helps out the businessman, he deals with a temporary financial crunch, cashes in on the new business he was able to generate and redeems his pawned item(s). This is how and why Gems N Loans began to grow.
The consumer learned that it was a fun, interesting place to visit . . whether to pawn an item or to buy attractive merchandise at very attractive rates.
Mack had hit on a magic formula and he began to expand . . .both the concept and the number of stores. In time he acquired seven pawn businesses, with locations in Escondido, Oceanside, the corporate office in Vista, Temecula, Point Loma, and, most recently, two new locations in Lubbock, Texas. Visiting a Gems N Loans pawn shop is a totally different experience. Staff that are knowledgeable, well trained, and courteous are ready to serve you. And now, Mack has embarked on

another fascinating innovation. He both buys and sells gold and silver ... bullion or coins. He knew that gold had been a most valuable staple in metal . . .since way back in biblical times. When Mack first got involved with gold it was selling for only $350 an ounce. Today it sells for closer to $1900-2000, depending upon the spot market prices, which is set in London. Mack knew that gold and silver is a good hedge against inflation . . . a safe edge against a bad economy, is a solid part of any wise investor's portfolio . . .is always liquid and is easily and quickly converted to cash, if needed, and should be part of anyone's estate. And so he created a marketing plan that is currently being offered. You can buy a one ounce gold bar for just 20% down, nine months to pay, and zero interest. The man knows his business and he knows how to market it.
In addition to Mack's Common Sense approach to business I have been impressed with his skilled management ability. Among his many talents is the ability to spot talent, to hire good people, either those who already have a great deal of expertise, or to train the new hires in the business. Many of his employees have been with him for a number of years, some well over 20 years, at least

The Paper Sheriff’s Deputies Arrest Suspect, Recover Cultural Artifacts stolen from Casino.
A man has been arrested on suspicion of stealing priceless cultural artifacts from a historical exhibit at Harrah’s Resort Southern California in Valley Center.
In 2019, the Rincon Band of Luiseño Indians installed the exhibit at the casino. Many of the artifacts came from the Rincon Indian Reservation and are considered irreplaceable. The items were displayed in a locked plexiglass case near the casino’s event center. On the morning of May 13, 2021, a man entered the casino and forcibly opened the plexiglass case and stole six artifacts. Deputies from the Valley Center Sheriff’s Substation were called to the casino and immediately began their investigation on who stole the items. Over the past two days, detectives worked tirelessly to identify the suspect and hopefully recover some of the stolen property. During the course of their investigation, evidence led them to 32-year-old Sonny Hunter. On May 15 around 7:00 a.m., detectives served a search warrant at Hunter’s home in the 10000 block of Quail Glen Way in Unincorporated Escondido. They located all of the artifacts that were stolen from the casino. Hunter was arrested for burglary, grand theft

and possession of stolen property.
While serving the search warrant, detectives found a felony warrant suspect unrelated to this case hiding in the home with a loaded firearm. 37-year-old Donald Morrow was arrested for the warrant and charged with being a felon in possession of a firearm. Both Hunter and Morrow were booked at the Vista Detention Facility.
“We couldn’t be more pleased by the recovery of these tribal artifacts,” said Robert Livingston, SVP and General Manager at Harrah’s Resort Southern California. “The due diligence of the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department, the Valley Center Sheriff’s Substation, as well as the security team at Harrah’s Resort SoCal is greatly appreciated.” Officers Respond to Reports of a Shooting at the MarBrisa Resort
On May 23, at 2:12 a.m., the City of Carlsbad Police Department responded to a report of shots fired at the MarBrisa Carlsbad Resort, located in the 1500 block of Marbrisa Circle.
Responding officers found one, 22year old male with a gunshot wound. Fire Department medics provided medical aid and transported the victim to a local area hospital where he was in stable condition. Do you have a swimming pool? Is it full? Can you find a dealer where you can rent or buy at LEAST a thirty to fifty gallon per minute water pump and variable nozzle hose coupled to a large gasoline engine to power it? You could stand your ground at high risk to yourself. But you would need at least one young volunteer-two or three would be better--to assist you in the fight.
Man About Town Fire Season Is Upon Us!
The pleasant spring tempmeratures and balmy breezes will soon give way to hot, muggy, and windy days. That means the fire season has arrived. Heat, high winds, almost guarantee it.
It’s probably a good idea to make a checklist to use in the near or distant future when fire revisits us all: Do you have a shingle roof, tile roof, or metal roof? What about your garage, its construction materials and roof? Attached or not attached? Is your house wood, brick, stone, or some other substance?
While you still have city water, cut off the pumps which keep your pool from overflowing, run in the garden hose, and fill it to overflowing. Evacuate family members and pets and have them take any special papers, household goods, and such with them. If you have flammable liquids anywhere, pour them directly into the earth or on a hard surface and allow them to evaporate AS LONG AS THERE ARE NO SPARKS IN THE AIR. Beg, borrow, or steal aluminum ladders to set up to the roof of your garage and around your house to various points on the roof.
Your ability to fight the fire will depend on wind speed, humidity, and the air temperature and speed of the fire itself. Moderate fires can and have been successfully fought by homeowners by simply keeping everything damp--not soaking wet-but merely damp. Individual small outbreaks can be zapped in an

If authorities tell you to beat it, leave without hesitation. Have your escape vehicle pre-filled with gas (no more dangerous than a halftank, possibly actually LESS dangerous) and pre-packed with battery radios, flashlights, maps (GPS could fail and cell phone towers collapse) and ALL of your important legal and medical papers in a fireproof box inside. You may think this is silly. You may think if the car is trapped and burns you'll go with it. Wrong. You may be able to flee on foot where no roads go, or be evacuated by helicopter at some rallying point. If that's the case you will go with only the clothes on your back and your car will be incinerated--but your papers will remain safe inside a fireproof box in your car. Pack the vehicle for a long weekend camping trip if you have the time--but nothing that's not needed to sustain life or resurrect your old life. Extra shoes and socks if possible and sensible. No family heirlooms, no works of art, nothing that cannot be of assistance in saving your lives. If there's time-and most likely there will NOT be-throw this stuff into the pool and recover it when you're allowed back in. Medications, snacks, and some cash should be in a couple of big baggies in the glovebox. Wear only very sensible clothing, jeans, hik-
Letters to the Editor God love The Paper!
In this week's "Letter to the Editor" column (May 20, 2021), I totally agree with Mary Jean Fisher's comments -- bless her heart! Because I also could not stop laughing out loud in reading Friedrich Gomez's Mother's Day cover story!
Mary Jean Fisher nailed it perfectly when pointing out the part of mother's yelling so loudly that even the family dog cowers away some place safe!! And only a sleep-deprived mother can relate to what it's truly like trying to sleep with a restless toddler, as Friedrich Gomez points out in his story "For mothers it's like sleeping with a drunk octopus looking for its car keys!"

ing boots, a light jacket w/hood and work gloves in case of flying sparks.
While packing the escape vehicle, throw in everything you have saved on flash drives (which can be carried in a pocket) or remote hard drives. Computers? Maybe. Depends on the size of your vehicle. But NO monitors, keyboards, speakers, etc. There will be no room and no time. Save that for blankets or, preferably sleeping bags. Depending on the fire pattern, you might have a rough couple of nights. Rinse out empty two liter pop bottles and fill with drinking water. Peanut butter and crackers will keep body and soul together for several days. Raid your medicine cabinet and throw stuff in a pillowcase--aspirin, hydrogen peroxide, rubbing alcohol, Band-Aids, gauze, tape, whatever stands out as usable and important--and nothing else. You can shave next week.
If you have a firearm FORGET THE STUPID LAWS AND TAKE IT, ALONG WITH AMMO FOR SAME. If it's a long gun, load it and throw a blanket over it. If it's a handgun, jam it into your pocket, loaded, one in the chamber, and make damned sure it's on "safe." You have no idea what you will see down the road. It could be heroic firemen and National Guard--or it

sick of this, honestly!
Thursday, my husband, daughter, and granddaughter were at Staples in Escondido. I was making Xerox copies of your Memorial Day cover story (by Friedrich Gomez). My usual intention on Thursdays is to have my husband Jacob fax the finished copies to a dear friend in the Midwest along with our usual cover letter. A couple hoodlums with their pants halfway down their damned butts swaggered over with sly grins on their faces and called us White racists for reading "The ----Paper!"
We left in a huff without saying a word but it was hard to hold my tongue and my husband was about to move towards them as he blew his fuse! We faxed your story copies elsewhere! I am just so sick and tired of this! And sick of this cancel culture and mob menace! Next time we'll wait for The Paper to go online. I never wish to subject my family to unwarranted danger.
Now I understand the reader fan Mr. Derek Tatum of Escondido who wrote to your "Letter to the Editor" column (May 12 issue). I wish to answer him here: No, you're NOT a racist Mr. Tatum! You're just a normal human being who is just fed-up with all these hooligans and mob mentalities who are a menace in burning and pillaging our cities! No, Mr. Tatum, you're not a racist. You're just a NORMAL human being in an ABNORMAL world today. As a former teacher, I'm just so saddened to see what is being taught today. /s/ Arlene Tibbets, Escondido and Poway. More on Memorial Day
Lyle, your Memorial Day cover story by Friedrich Gomez knocked the socks off everyone!! No other newsprint had anything as powerful, emotional, and ORIGINAL as The Paper! Who knew that CHILDREN served and died in the U. S. Military?!! No major newspaper, television, or newscast knew this -and The Paper SCOOPED them all. Lyle, you're a bloody genius in going with your Big Hitter (Friedrich Gomez) to knock one out of the ballpark! My cousin showed his boss at the Newark Star Ledger newspaper in New Jersey your online story and he said: #@&*! Why the hell didn't we cover this angle?! “ You're the Talk of the Town, Lyle!

The Grand Canyon
By Sam Lowe
On May 19, 1969, I stood in the front yard of my home in Jamestown, North Dakota, and confronted the remains of a lateseason blizzard. With shovel in hand and cold-induced shivers cascading through my entire being, a well-rehearsed litany of curses emerged from my frosted lips as I went into battle against the foot of snow that had plopped down the previous evening. But then, as I swore and shoveled and shoveled and swore in rhythmic fashion, a strange calm came upon me with the realization that life is too short to let myself be permanently attached to a hand-operated snowremoval device. So I finished clearing the driveway, went into the house, and began perusing my collection of Arizona Highways magazines.
And as I gazed upon the splendor of snowless sunsets, the magnificence of 80-degree winter temperatures, and the glories of green cactus standing erect as sentinels guarding green winter lawns, it occurred to me that there was nothing major stopping me from moving there. There would be, of course, some minor details. Finding a new job. Moving costs. Selling my house, my long underwear, my parka and the snow shovel. But I did it anyway.
By September of 1969, I was living in Arizona. It was not an easy transition, but I bought short-sleeved work shirts, sold my fur-lined pajamas to a guy from Flagstaff, and didn't shovel even one ounce of snow.
And as I basked in all this, I remembered those many times I had conjured up my personal vision of hell, not as a place of eternal fire and brimstone, but as a remote frozen location where the temperatures never got above thirty below zero, where it snowed every day, where the wind whipped out of the northwest at forty miles per hour, and where chapped lips and runny noses were part of the dress code.
So I made the adjustment and began an extended love affair with my new surroundings. But about a year later, a fellow transplant and I decided that we weren't true Arizonans until we hiked the Grand
Canyon. It was, we told each other, a brilliant idea, fraught with just enough peril to make it exciting, but not dangerous enough to dissuade us from becoming adventurers. We selected a September weekend and formulated a training program that consisted basically of hoisting ourselves onto bar stools and staying there until the call of nature became intolerable. This, we assumed, would give us the staying power required to reach the canyon's lowest point.
On the morning of what we dubbed “the Great Descent,” we launched ourselves into the depths on the Bright Angel Trail. Both brave and stalwart, we took the initial steps with the unbridled glee that normally precedes a mission of this magnitude. During the first hour, we viewed landscapes neither of us had ever dreamed existed, even though we were both avid Arizona Highways fans. The magazine's photographs were great, but seeing the canyon walls in person superseded anything ever published. Our pace was steady, our joy was uncontained. And our exuberance reached untold heights when, four hours after our departure, we reached the Colorado River. We abandoned our usual adult behavior and splashed in the water as children might do during their first encounter with a plastic wading pool. It was glorious. It was probably the most fun we'd ever had with all our clothes on. Then we rested. After all, we had just hiked eleven miles, stopping only to gawk, point, gush, pontificate, gape, and gaze in drop-jaw wonder at the beauty we had seen. The trip had been rather hard; there were no flat spots along the trail, so every step was a downward step. That strained our thighs which, due to our training regimen, were more accustomed to flatland bathroom soirees than downhill junkets through the wilderness. Shortly after noon, however, we arose to begin the second half of what we were now calling “the Conquering of the Canyon.” Our plan was to make it to Indian Wells, a campground about halfway between the Canyon rim and the river. Since we had maneuvered the eleven miles to the bottom with no problem, we figured an uphill hike of half that distance would be rela-

THE BIGGEST STORY OF THE 21ST CENTURY The difference between theoretical speculation and reality is the very DEFINITION OF GOD as the NON-LOCAL TOTALITY of an ANTI DE SITTER
SPACE-TIME whose CYCLE ENDS after 88.088 Billion Light Years, thus FULFILLING Revelation 21:6: "I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end.' The following four summary papers explaining this reality in detail are available on Sean Sheeter's Facebook homepage. In "Towards The Most Memorable Christmas In History" I explain why an AdS cosmology can only be understood via Prophesy, after prophesying myself about Jesus's rebirth on Christmas day in the year 2100 and coming out on his 22nd birthday as Christ the Messiah, thereby fulfilling the last book of the Bible, Revelation 22. In "My Christmas Letter to Errol Morris" I tear apart a ludicrous theoretical speculation by Roger Penrose that one can see complete Hawking Black Hole Evaporation from a Previous universe in this one, which doesn't happen until the complete AdS cycle ends after 88.088 billion light years. After giving a little personal history about my late partner A.J. Meyer and myself and our respective interactions with the Godfather of Gravitational wisdom, John Wheeler, I go on to destroy the predominate cosmological idea that the expansion of space itself is accelerating. The Complete 3-21-21 Definition of GOD as an Anti de Sitter Cosmology goes on to demolish that idea in more detail with regard to the final fact that the Big Bang's White Hole Ended the Inflation Era after having truly accelerated to a power of 10 to the 20th order Faster than light speed after Creation. Cosmological Page Time expands on the fact that this White Hole's effective plank scaled Spatial Horizon is presently some 13.77x2 billion light years in diameter and is Expanding at light speed as Carried through the 4th Dimension by a Primordial Gravitational Wave whose massless Gravitons are quantized at a reciprocal planck scale.

For additional information you are referred to Sean Sheeter’s website at:
The Grand Old Personality Cult of the Antichrist In the the first paragraph of the above paper titled “Towards The Most Memorable Christmas In History,” I allude to an unsettling whole set of prophesies, most of which have already been fulfilled. But I only learned about what I like to call the Grand Old Personality Cult of the Antichrist (GOPCA, ya don't spell it, ya say it, it's a new Word lol!) two days after the election. But I also happen to know that present President Joe Biden already knew all about these prophesies I only learned about on 11-5-20. Which only biblically confirmed my suspicions about that Fascist Former Guy, as I've known for 20 years now that I'm the one who is destined to expose Revelation 11:7's "beast from the bottomless pit" to the light of the world. Whereby six months from now one of his many GOPCA 'beast worshipers' will "ascendeth out of the bottomless pit" to successfully kill me. If one scrolls down under the latter sections of My Templeton Foundation Grant Proposal on Sean Sheeter's Facebook page one can read a paper titled “Me Versus The Antichrist” which I wrote as the second section of “My Defense” meant to be read as a part of a Federal Court case being brought against me in San Diego.
Now the most damning proof in Benjamin L. Corey's set of prophesies is this Corey paste: The Antichrist will worship the god of border walls. For real. The Bible actually says that. Proof from Daniel 11:37-38 -“He will show no regard for the gods of his ancestors or for the one desired by women, nor will he regard any god, but will exalt himself above them all. Instead of them, he will honor a god no one will have heard of before: the god of fortresses. And he will worship this god with a lot of money.” This is a paid advertisement that does not necessarily reflect the views or opinion of The Paper but represent the views of the client.

PROBLEM SOLVED BY CHRISTOPHER ELLIOTT Help! eBay mistakenly sent my package to Florida
Wandra Harmsen's eBay order gets sent to Florida by mistake. Can she get a refund for the $387 she spent?
Q: I ordered food products two times from eBay recently. But something went wrong with my third order. eBay sent it to an unknown address in Florida, and I didn't catch it in time. Even after I realized what was going on, I couldn't stop the order from being delivered to the address. I don't know where the address came from. The seller blames eBay, eBay blames the seller. They keep saying the same thing over and over. I would like to be reimbursed for $387, the cost of the last order. Can you help me? -- Wandra Harmsen, Buzzards Bay, Mass.
A: This is such a strange case. Who sent your package to a mysterious Florida address? And why did you have to pay for it? I have a resolution but I don't have a full explanation. Before we get there, let's take a look at your rights when you order something through eBay. The company's <a href="https://www.ebay.com/help/p olicies/ebay-money-back-guarantee-policy/ebay-money-back-guarantee-policy?id=4210">Money Back Guarantee</a> says if the item you ordered didn't arrive, is faulty or damaged, or doesn't match the listing, you'll get your money back. Your package didn't arrive. Case closed, right? Wrong. The package did arrive at the address given by the seller. It was just the wrong address. And no one can seem to figure out how that incorrect address got on your package. Did someone hack into your eBay account? Was the address autofilled from your browser? Did the seller make a clerical error? Or did eBay do something to reroute your package to the wrong state? It's unclear, and even after investigating this, no one has come forward to own up to the mislabeling. How it happened remains a mystery
It looks like you tried to resolve the problem through normal channels, by initiating a chat with eBay. Although a representative promised to look into this, you didn't hear back from anyone. Remember, I list the names, numbers and email addresses of the <a href="https://www.elliott.org/company-contacts/ebay-customer-service-contacts/">eBay executives</a> on my consumer advocacy site, Elliott.org. You could have also reached out to one of them to appeal your case. I contacted eBay on your behalf. The company refunded your $387, but did not offer any details on the address switch.

Why is it taking so long for my Overseas Adventure Travel refund?
After Overseas Adventure Travel cancels Sandy Hain's Morocco tour, it offers a credit. He wants a refund. Is the company required to return his money?
Q: I'd like some advice for obtaining a refund for a trip to Morocco my wife and I booked with Overseas Adventure Travel (OAT). We originally scheduled for April of 2020. OAT canceled the trip in March 2020. At that time, OAT offered either a full refund or incentives to rebook the trip or opt for other future trips. We had until May 1 to decide.
But before May 1, we asked about a refund, and a representative told us that was no longer an option. OAT booked us on a future trip instead. I recently read that Overseas Adventure Travel was required to honor my request for a refund under Massachusetts law. I contacted OAT late last year and again asked for a refund. A representative told me it would take 30 to 90 days. I called them in January and a representative told me it would take 30 to 90 business days. I've reviewed the Massachusetts Travel Seller law and saw that refunds should be made within 30 days. OAT has been a fantastic company for the past two tours we have taken with them, but now I am worried our $9,864 they agreed to refund will disappear. Any advice or efforts on your part are greatly appreciated. -- Sandy Hain, Palo Alto, Calif. A: You're absolutely correct that the Massachusetts Travel Seller law (940 Mass. Reg. 15.06) requires a full refund. And since Overseas Adventure Travel is based in Boston, it must return your money. Its May 1 deadline is irrelevant.
I'm dealing with a lot of Overseas Adventure Travel cases at the moment. It seems the company strongly encouraged customers to accept a credit -- maybe a little too

Germany’s Great Escape Artist
During World War II, Adalbert “Bert” Messerschmitt “was a “great escape artist.” He began his life-preservation exploits on the Russian Front in 1941. Some years ago the wife of Messerschmitt called me and asked if I’d be interested in talking with her husband … a former member of the German army during. They lived in Oceanside and I couldn’t get out to their house fast enough. Born in 1921 in northern Bavaria, Germany, Messerschmitt was the son of a forester. In 1937, he had to serve a year of national service on the Siegfried Line along the western German border with France, then in 1939, he was drafted into the Wehrmacht (German armed forces).
About that name, Messerschmitt. He was the grand-nephew of famed aircraft designer Willy Messerschmitt, who designed the core inventory of Hitler’s Luftwaffe, including the ME109 fighter and later the world’s first operational fighter jet, the ME-262. “I didn’t know it at the time, but in December 1941, Uncle Willy arranged to have me pulled out of the fighting in the Ukraine and sent to fighter-pilot school. When I found out, it made me mad and I got a transfer back to my old army unit,” Bert recalled. This was a time when Germany was fighting the Russians in Chechnya.
“The Chechnyans hated the Russians, so they were pretty friendly to us Germans,” recalling his time serving in Chechnya.
Messerschmitt was wounded during a battle in the Caucasus Mountains in the south of Chechnya and simultaneously came down with malaria. His next experience was somewhere between a miracle and the “Twilight Zone.”
In Chechnya Messerschmitt was befriended by a local family when he came down with malaria. He became infatuated with the family’s beautiful young daughter, Vera. Bert was visiting one evening when a Russian scout plane flew low over their village. “We all took cover, except for Vera,” he recalled. “She just laughed and told me it was her brother, a reconnaissance pilot for the Russians. He flew low over the village each night to check on the family. Messerschmitt came down with malaria and fell into a coma when he got worse. “I needed to get to a German hospital some one hundred miles to the north in Rostov,” Bert recalled. “When I woke up several days later, I was at that very hospital.”
No one knew how he got there, only that he was found wandering around on the road near the hospital. “I could never prove it, but I figured Vera’s brother flew me there in his Russian scout plane, landed on the road, and dropped me off. It’s a wild, crazy story, but there it is.”
When he recovered, he went back to the fighting and was soon captured by the Russians. Again, his captivity was short-lived. “I was with about 20 other German soldiers being kept by the Russians to shuttle ammunition to their lines,” he recalled.
On the third day, a German Stuka dive-bomber began strafing and the two Russian guards dived for cover. Messerschmitt escaped down a drainage ditch, hiding inside a culvert. He packed mud to cover the opening and waited until dark. Back again with the German army he was sent to France. On Oct. 21, 1944, he was captured yet again, this time by the U.S. 7th Army. He remained a POW until Feb. 15, 1946, nearly a year after the war was over. “The Americans said we could go home, but we were marched out of the camp near Dijon, (France) across the road to a French POW camp.” Bert said he spent the next several months cutting firewood.
“The war had been over for more than a year. I just wanted to go home.”
It was July 14, 1946, the French celebration of Bastille Day. Messerschmitt knew the guards would be drinking so if he was going to escape that would be his opportunity. Messerschmitt and three other German soldiers slipped through the barbed wire fencing and escaped into the nearby forest. They traveled north for 13 nights eventually crossing the German border.
When he and a comrade were within a few miles of Messerschmitt’s hometown in Bavaria, they were nearly caught again; this time in a train station. They joined two girls in the waiting room sitting at this long table. Two French soldiers were nearby having a beer. Suddenly two American MPs started checking papers. One of the girls noticed the two escapees were getting nervous and asked what was wrong. “When I told them, one girl motioned to hide beneath their wide skirts under the table. The MPs never saw us.” Messerschmitt accomplished his last escape and was home within an hour.
In 1948, Messerschmitt joined the U.S. Army, and rose to master sergeant. Then in 1953, he and wife, Rita, immigrated to the United States. “During the war, I was a loyal German soldier, but since coming to this country I’m every bit an American and very proud of it!” Perhaps a story perfect for Hollywood … at least one for the history books.

5th District Supervisor
The Federal Government has allocated over $300 million to San Diego County, for COVID-19 recovery efforts. Each Supervisor has submitted their plans to the Chief Administrative Officer (CAO) for how they would like the money to be used. The CAO will then take all the requests and the Board will vote on the allocation of dollars on Tuesday, June 8th. Some of my requests include helping our restaurants, assisting our first responders and military families and mental health services for kids.
The Dine-Out and Help-Out program is the perfect program to bring people together and help our restaurants, who are still struggling. Customers would receive 50% off their bill, with up to $10 off per person. The restaurants then would submit their receipts to the County in order to be reimbursed the full price of the meal. The discounts would be available on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, typically slower days for restaurants. I have proposed to our Chief Administrative Officer that we implement the Dine-Out to HelpOut program by using $50 million

of COVID-19 recovery funds.
The Appropriations Committee can be a place where good bills go to die. But despite its reputation, some important legislation made it through Appropriations before the May 21st deadline.
Another request is $40 million for first responder and military families who have been financially affected by COVID-19. Many first responders and military spouses or family members have lost jobs or have had to miss work while helping their kids with schoolwork. This program would provide up to three months of past due rent or mortgage payments per household, with a maximum of $6,000 per household for military and first responder families.
That includes two of my bills, AB 653, which creates a grant for substance use treatments in county jails and for those on supervised parole, and AB 22, a bill I jointly authored to phase in Transitional Kindergarten eligibility for all four-year-olds. Another important education bill, AB 498 (Quirk-Silva) establishes a program to increase the number of teachers trained to instruct students in computer science.
These are a few of my priorities. I will keep you updated with the progress and tell you about a few other initiatives next week.
Significant fire prevention legislation is also moving. AB 267 (Valladares), which extends the sunset date on CEQA exemptions for fuel reduction projects on federal lands, and AB 431 (Patterson), to extend the sunset date for defensible space exemptions around habitable structures, have both passed the Appropriations Committee and the full Assembly. AB 579 (Flora), authorizes Cal Fire to purchase protective equipment from either the California Prison Industry Authority or private entities based on department needs and product quality, and AB 1103 (Dahle), creates a

To support business, AB 1242 (BauerKahan), continues pandemic relief for restaurants by allowing sale of prepackaged alcohol for off-site consumption for another two years. To rein in business crime, AB 331 (JonesSawyer) extends the sunset date for California Highway Patrol’s property crime task force that investigates organized retail theft. And to deal with problems at EDD, AB 110 (PetrieNorris) will allow data sharing between the EDD and the Department of Corrections to prevent fraudulent unemployment claims by inmates.

The Pastor Says...
Pastor Richard Huls (Retired) Love, What Is It?
June is the month when Cupid shoots his mythical arrows into the hearts of the opposite sex and sets off romance and love. However, the question remains, what is love? Webster defines it as “to be fond of, desire, a deep and tender affection fore or attachment of devotion to a person or persons, etc. There is much more, but this is the essence. It is the one force which makes the heart grow fonder that often goes beyond reason. It leads to familiarity, fondness, hugging, kissing, togetherness, touching, and sex. There are times when it provokes jealousy, deceit, lying, anger, and even murder.
So what is love and what creates it? There is the religious community that believes it comes from God. The Bible says “God is love.” If we are to truly love, we have to imitate Him. Others say it is something we grow into over time together. I

have known many who wish they could love but for some reason cannot. Some claim to have fallen in love. Yet, this doesn’t always remain, because they also fall out of love. Then there is the experience of “love at first sight.” This often happens to people who are in love with movie stars or super athletes. They can become consumed with this love passion. Love doesn’t seem to be partial as to who experiences it. We have Anthony and Cleopatra and Hitler and Eva Braun. They loved even in suicide. Is love forever, as it is often stated in a marriage vow until death we do part? Indeed, does it even transcend this earthly realm,, such as is taught in some religions? Who really knows? Jesus said there was no marriage in the afterlife.
We go back to the question, what really is love? Is it only a feeling, a biological chemical output that identifies with those who have the same make up, a learned and cultural expectation, which somehow affects us in our childhood? Some long tenured marriages say it is a commitment, trust, honesty, vulnerability, sharing and caring – all expressions of behavior. Ultimately, it is dependence on God to give us the strength and wisdom to live these virtues. So Cupid, shoot those arrows and let us love.

Reflecting on Bike Anywhere Week
San Marcos’ Parks & Recreation Youth Commission invited residents to celebrate SANDAG’s Bike Anywhere Week from May 16-22. In collaboration with City staff, the Parks & Recreation Youth Commission shared striking statistics on the benefits of biking for both your health and the environment.
Here are a few impressive statistics: Biking or walking at least 20 minutes per day can reduce your risk of heart disease and diabetes by 14%. • If commutes by biking or walking increased from 12% to 15%, we would experience 3.8 billion gallons of fuel savings. • Wearing a helmet while biking decreases the risk of a head or brain injury by roughly 60%. The 2021 Bike Anywhere Week was a success, so let’s keep that momentum going! San Marcos offers many routes to travel via alternative transportation. The City of San Marcos’ 63-mile trail network is perfect for cycling, hiking, running and more! To learn more about parks and trails in our community, visit www.sanmarcos.net/play. •

Escondido • Mayor Paul “Mac” McNamara Greetings Escondido,
When you read this, the Memorial Day weekend will have just finished. The unofficial start of summer has begun. For those nonnative Californians who grew up with four seasons, they know the symbolism of this weekend with all of its events beyond its name. Even living in Southern California for almost 30 years, it is still a big deal weekend for me.
But as a veteran and now getting older, the “Memorial” part of the weekend has taken on a stronger meaning. I guess with age I’m getting more philosophical. Or perhaps I recognize how great the sacrifice was that these men and women made. All the good things that we experienced in our lives they lost. The love in a marriage, the wonder of a first child, the strength of long friendship, the excitement getting a promotion, fun vacations, watching exciting games, etc. were all lost to them. And they made this sacrifice willingly and for us. When I think of our country and recognize that it is not perfect, I still feel an enormous sense of pride that we can produce generation after generation men and women who were willing to give their all. I hope you do too. Stay informed, Be Kind, Remember your neighbor, and Stay safe! Semper Fi, Mac Paul P. McNamara Mayor of Escondido email@example.com

Global semiconductor shortage hitting consumer wallets
Cars and computers are two products particularly hard hit by the worldwide semiconductor shortage. There are many and varied reasons and opinions as to the cause and who to blame, but all agree that the crisis is real. Want to know more? Just Google “global semiconductor shortage”. In May the average price of a new car rolled past $40,000 and the average price for a used car topped $25,000. Both figures were historic records. Retail and wholesale PC prices are exploding as components like memory, CPU and graphic chips are increasingly in short supply. Refurbished PCs,

especially the high quality “commercial grade refurbs,” are in high demand as supply constraints and price increases restrict new computer sales. Many corporations, governments and schools that are the main source of high quality “commercial grade refurbs” are being forced to hold on to their existing PC longer The resulting shortage of “commercial” trade-ins affects the availability of “refurbable” commercial grade computers and is beginning to push “refurb” prices ever higher. Industry experts expect semiconductor shortages and rising prices at least through mid 2022. Most of us watch our spending pretty close these days. Whether for business or personal use, we want to make cost effective decisions. With cars, we can’t help you decide whether it’s best to lease, buy, new, used, gas, diesel, hybrid or all-electric. With cars, you’re on your own. But when it comes to computers, we are your new “BFF.” We can look at your old computer and tell you its limitations, whether it can be upgraded and what the effects and cost of the upgrade would be. We can show you our large inventory of refurbished desk tops, towers, notebooks, All-in-Ones and Micros. We can relate your particular needs and usage patterns to hardware that best meets those needs. A four year old “commercial refurb” is typically half the price and twice the quality of a brand new retail PC. If your old PC cannot be upgraded to meet your needs, you may want to trade it in on something that will. We can nearly
The Appraiser’s Corner Record Players
Ask anyone under the age of 30 if they have ever heard records being played from a record player and you might get a blank stare. Okay, you might want to give them the benefit of the doubt, and use names such as “turntables”, “record changers” or “decks”, but the reaction will probably be the same. So, what about these so-called “record players”?
Well, record players, and by the way, they used to be called gramophones or phonographs, were first invented in the 1870s. Not surprisingly, the inventor of the machine was none other than Thomas Edison. The same man from Menlo Park, California who invented the light bulb as we know it, invented the phonograph. Americans of all ages don’t really know how thankful they should be to him. Edison invented it in 1877, in which he learned heavily on research done more than twenty years earlier by Edouard Leon Scott de Martinville. Soon after Edison’s invention, none other than Alexander Graham Bell improved on the phonograph. Yes, that same Alexander Graham Bell who invented the telephone. These inventors sure have a way of spreading the wealth around!
By the late 19th century, the
phonograph, or gramophone, had become widely accepted across the country, and improvements on the machine were common. This invention would change how sound and music were perceived. In the past music had to be heard at a live performance, and obviously, was not easily accessible. With the new device, a record player, a person could listen to his favorite music wherever and whenever he wanted. A real beneficiary of the record player was the producer of the music, as well as everyone else involved in its production.
The word itself “phonograph” was first used, but various names have been used through the years since the Edison days. For the record, so to speak, Edison record onto a tinfoil sheet wrapped around a cylinder through an up-down motion of the stylus. In 1889, however, Emile Berliner developed a disc coated with a compound of beeswax and benzine to record sound through a spiral motion of the stylus. That design worked better.
By the end of the 19th century almost all major American cities had “phonograph parlors”, where a person could listen to music from a machine similar to a modern day jukebox. In 1890 a process was invented to make duplicate, massproduced copies of a phonograph record, which allowed the “phono-

If, after carefully weighing all of your options, you decide to pop over to Best Buy or Costco and buy one of their overpriced “retail PCs”, new or refurbished, we can only shake our heads sadly and apologize to you for our failure to appeal to your common sense. We’ll try to do better next time. Today the World is awash in “information.” It no longer pays even to try to stay current with all technolo-
graph parlors” to thrive.
However, it was in 1940 that vinyl was introduced as the recording material, allowing for more room for recording. For example, a long play vinyl record could contain an entire symphony. By the 1960s almost all American households had record players.
The record player was used widely until the 1980s when the eight-track player, and the less expensive cassette player were introduced. The record player was on its way out. Soon, the adoption of CDs as a way to record music was developed, which was a further blow to the record player. However, record players are still used today despite the popularity of digital music. To some, record players offer greater fidelity and sound quality. Of course, to collectors, record players have never gone away.
Just a few examples to prove that point. In a 2008 Heritage Auction, a vintage Victor phonograph, owned by the gospel singer J.D. Sumner, dated 1902, sold for nearly $900.
An Elvis Presley “Autograph Model” Portable Manual Record Player from 1956 was sold at auction for $1625. However, in July 2012 a vintage Beatles record player from 1964, one of only 5000 produced, went

But it is important that you understand that portion of the available technology you actually do use. You need help from someone you can trust and that’s where we can be useful. We can help you “cut to the chase” and focus on what you actually need to know in order to make informed computer decisions. After all we are your new “BFF.”
for $4000. This Beatles phonograph was in working order, and has a picture of the group on the top and inside lid. It is indeed a rarity today and a real nice addition to any Beatles collection. Even though record players are not in many households today, they have served an important role in American history.

Only the upper third of the nail on my left index finger didn't hurt.
And we still had more than five miles to go.
Now faced with the knowledge that perhaps our pre-trip training was less than sufficient, we established a new plan. We would walk for fifteen minutes then rest for five minutes. At that rate, we figured, we could distribute our energy evenly which would let our lungs take a break from all that gasping and wheezing. We bolstered ourselves by recalling that, more than five miles away, all uphill, a cooler filled with ice and beer awaited the two conquerors. We formed mental images of the first beer easing our aches, the second beer reducing the pain, the third beer slaking our thirst, and so on. But, we also had to remind ourselves, the beer was more than five miles away, sitting in a vehicle that was also more than five miles away.
And so we began. The first few steps, maybe seven or so, weren't bad. But then, yesterday's muscular disfigurements kicked in and they were angry at being ignored because we had neglected to bring a masseuse along. We walked for the first fifteen minutes, as planned, then rested for five minutes, then rested another five minutes just to make sure we had established the proper formula.
