Back then he was about as scared as a young kid can be. Today, he has shaken the hand of President Barack Obama, met First Lady, Michelle Obama, is honored by the people of Normandy, France, indeed, the village of St. Pois has taken him into their bosom as one of their own as an honorary citizen . . . he has met the great, the wealthy, the powerful.

But back in the day, he was just one more scared GI, about to head across the English Channel and participate in DDay. Today, he travels to France on board an Air France jetliner, and is treated like royalty. Back then, he was in an LCI (Landing Craft, Infantry) with about 100 other solidiers, many of whom became seasick during the choppy crossing. He didn’t become seasick. He had fished a great deal in the ocean off of California’s coast and never once has been seasick a day in his life. “It’s true what they say,” he says, “when you get really, really seasick, you turn green. I saw many a soldier on board our LCI that turned green.”
He’s 97 years old today, but doesn’t look it. Nor does he feel it. He plays tennis two the three times a week and works out daily in a gym. He is Jack Port, the pride of Escondido, and now, Oceanside.

Many folks in Escondido know Jack as the genial proprietor of Port’s Men’s Wear in Escondido, the store his father founded and he continued to operate at 214 East Grand until finally closing the store in 1975. A lot of folks do not realize that he was one of those heroic young men who participated in D-Day, hitting Utah Beach with his comrades in arms, and watching many die. The Paper - 760.747.7119

Many strange twists in Jack Port’s life, not the least of which is the fact that his father, originally from Estonia, was strict and absolutely forbade guns in the house. “You don’t shoot, you don’t kill,” his father had said. And now here he was, M-1 rifle cradled in his arms, aboard an LCI, bound for a place called Utah Beach, in France - about to take on the German military in just one of many memorable battles he was to experience.
“I was absolutely, totally scared,” he said. “From the time we embarked from England, all during the voyage over, when we hit the beaches, during our campaign inland, throughout France, Germany, and Belgium. I was never not scared. Omaha Beach caught hell. We were fired upon and had some casualties, but there was relatively light resistance. That didn’t take away the fear. We established our beach-head and rolled to the right, heading for our first mission, Cherbourg, France.” Another of those strange twists in Jack Port’s life:

“The Army took this punk kid and turned him into a combat ready soldier. I was inducted into the Army at San Pedro. After my basic training at Camp Roberts in Paso Robles, California, it was well known that everyone was headed for the Pacific Theatre of War Operations. Suddenly, a levy came down that set up a separate shipment to Camp Shanks in New York. We don’t know why we were going to New York, of all places, when we were already in California. We soon found out. We were going to Europe to fight the Germans.” What would have happened if Jack Port had been sent to the Pacific instead of Europe? We’ll never know. We do know what happened to him in the European Theatre . . . and that he returned to live a wonderful life in his beloved homeland of America.
Arriving in England, he was assigned to the 4th Infantry Division. Before leaving stateside, he was supposed to qualify with the M-1 rifle. He had to try four times before an exasperated instructor finally passed him, even though he had only reached 137 instead of the required score of 140. “I don’t want to have to bring you back

He never did qualify on the carbine. “We landed in Scotland,” Jack says. “Then they shipped us by train to ‘The Moors,’ in England; the shades were pulled on the train so we had no idea where we were going. Upon arrival, we were housed in pup tents for about 60 days while we trained. It was cold, windy, rainy, very uncomfortable. There was no talk of ‘D-Day.’ I was a simple buck private so knew very little. We all knew we were going somewhere but we didn’t know where until about 2-3 weeks prior when we learned we were going to be part of ‘an invasion.’ But the location of this ‘invasion’ was not known to us until about a week before the actual event. Right away we noticed a heavy increase in activity as people and equipment were mobilized. We knew something was up and whatever it was, was big. Really big.”

grenade in Basic Training. But I was now trained and equipped for war.
We boarded our LCI. I always used to call them LCT’s but that, I found,means Landing Craft, Tanks. We were on board Landing Craft, Infantry. There was no food on board, but lots of coffee. We all had K-rations, but very few of us ate during the voyage across the Channel. Even then, we still didn’t know how big this was, or that this was to be “D-Day.” All we knew was, we were ordered to go on this invasion and we went and did what we were told.
Clearly, it was big. Not only a lot of personnel and equipment . . .but supplies. I can tell you there were millions and millions of cigarettes on board those ships and LCI’s. And millions and millions of condoms, very few of which were to be used for their original purpose. Instead, they were used to protect K-rations from the weather, to put over the ends of rifle barrels to protect the weapon from the rain.”
Jack paused to reflect a moment: “There are only two of us left today from my unit. Of those Utah Beach Cont. on Page 3

I’ve been there a number of times and, over the years, have built some very strong and solid friendships with the French people who live there. To the right of Utah Beach was Pointe d’Hoc. That’s where the rangers were. That was a critical point to take because the German guns could fire up and down the coast at will and hit both Utah Beach and Omaha Beach. The Rangers paid a heavy price, but they took Pointe d’Hoc. We landed two miles away from where we were supposed to. Maybe that’s why we had such light resistance. We drew enough fire, however,

that I immediately did what I was trained to do. I hit the beach, flat on my belly, with my rifle in front of me. Though we had fairly light resistance, the fear never did leave me . . . never. Not until the war was finally over. Our force included three Regiments. The 8th Regiment landed at about 6:30 or 7am, the 22nd, landed a little later, and my regiment, the 12th, landed at about 10am. From there we wheeled right, toward Cherbourg. The Germans had flooded the plains to slow us down so we were restricted to using the local roadways.
Our objective was to take Cherbourg. Cherbourg had a large harbor that the Allies needed. We hit the beach on June 6th, we took Cherbourg on June 25th. There was a lot of hedgerow fighting but we did it. Mission accomplished. At least the first mission.” In that short time my buddy, Jim, and I had learned a lot. Like how to dig foxholes. A foxhole only needs to be about 12” deep. We dug all night and Jim said if we dug much more we’d wind up in China. Come morning time, we had a dickens of a time crawing out of our way-too-deep foxhole, probably 6 or 7’ deep. But, we were scared. And we were still alive. We were involved in some firefights en

Writers Read Presents Huda AlMarashi, Author of “First Comes Marriage” - Writers Read at Fallbrook Library, a free monthly author series, will feature debut author Huda Al-Marashi on Tuesday, June 11, from 6 to 7:30pm, in the library’s Community Room. Al-Marashi’s cross-culture memoir, “First Comes Marriage: My Not-So-Typical American Love Story,” reveals the complexities of life as a contemporary Iraqi-American raised in an immigrant family defined by conservative traditions. According to a Washington Post review, “If Jane Austen had grown up as a first-gen daughter of Iraqi parents in the 1990s, she might have written this.” Other works by Al-Marashi have appeared in The Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Al Jazeera, VIDA Review, The Rumpus, The Offing, and elsewhere. She is the recipient of a Cuyahoga County Creative Workforce Fellowship and an Aspen Summer Words Emerging Writer Fellowship. Al-Marashi's presentation will be preceded by open mic for original prose and poetry. Following the presentation, “First Comes Marriage” will be available for sale and signing. The Fallbrook Library is located at 124 S. Mission Road, between Alvarado and Fig Streets. There is no July reading. Our next Writers Read, on Tuesday, August 13, will feature Sara Marchant, author of “Proof of Loss” (Otis Books, 2019), a memoir about family, loss, and resilience.

I was hoping to be shipped back to England, but no such luck. Besides his ‘shot in the fanny,’ Jack had a number of other close calls:
“One time a piece of shrapnel entered my mess-kit and rattled around inside that; another time I had fallen face first into the ground, with my rifle in front of me, just the way they train you to do. A piece of shrapnel went right through the stock of my rifle; another time, we were sitting down, taking a break. My buddy, Jim, said, “Jack, you’d better get down here in this fox hole. I no sooner had gotten into the foxhole when a large piece of shrapnel hit right where I had been sitting.”

shower in about four weeks. “I said then that if and when I got back home I’d shower every day. I’ve done that. Sometimes I shower twice a day. It’s rough living out in the field. Not only no showers but sanitation is tough. The simple task of going to the bathroom can be a dicey experience. You’d catch an occasional shave by applying a blow torch to your canteen to heat the water, then lather up and shave. All the tanks had blow torches . . . but that’s a hard way to take a nice refreshing shave. Your hands were filthy dirty but you went ahead and ate your K-rations. War is not a clean, tidy place to be. You really appreciate things like showers. Normandy had lots of gardens so we’d often grab vegetables and enjoy those as a supplement to our Krations. They also had lots of apples. We loved ‘em.

The Paper • Page 4 • June 6, 2019 More and More Voter Protests Against SANDAG’s Diversion of funding Away from Local Road and Highway Improvements Last week the San Marcos City Council joined a growing list of concerned voters and municipalities and called on the San Diego Association of Governments to stick with plans to use transportation taxes to upgrade North County highways, including state Route 78. The council voted to send a letter to SANDAG urging the regional transportation planning agency to confirm that it will maintain local projects as priorities for TransNet tax spending. Mayor Rebecca Jones said voters approved the tax in 2004 with the promise that it would fund improvements to local roads and highways, and said she’s concerned that SANDAG is changing those priorities, in favor of a transit-centered plan for regional transportation. The council was responding to a proposal by SANDAG Executive Director Hasan Ikhrata to divert billions of dollars from long-promised freeway projects to fund an ambitious transit expansion. Changes in driving patterns and slowed growth in San Diego County have halved the amount that Transnet — the region’s halfcent sales tax for transportation — is expected to bring in over its 40year term. Instead of an estimated $39 billion, the tax is projected to generate $19.2 billion.
Instead of expansions and improvements to major roadways, such as the perpetually congested state Routes 78 and 52, Ikhrata suggested using funds collected from the half-cent TransNet tax to construct hundreds of miles of environmentally-friendly high-speed transit throughout San Diego County. North County leaders quickly objected to that plan. Oceanside Mayor Peter Weiss, Carlsbad Mayor Matt Hall and Escondido Mayor Paul “Mac” McNamara all said the agency’s proposal would be devastating to North County.
Jones added that the plan disregards the will of voters who approved the tax 15 years ago, believing it would be used to address local congestion.
Erik Bruvold, CEO of the San Diego North Economic Development Council, said he worked on the campaign to pass the TransNet tax, and said lists of local improvements sold the measure to the public, and helped secure the two-thirds vote needed for passage. “Generic messages about congestion relief, getting people out of cars, or saving the environment, did not get us to two-thirds,” he said. “The only thing that got us to twothirds was a specific list of projects.”
Supervisor Jim Desmond, the former mayor of San Marcos, returned to city hall to throw his hat in with North County cities opposing the change, which he characterized as futuristic fantasy. “There’s today, there’s tomorrow

and there’s Tomorrowland,” Desmond said, referring to the Disney theme park attraction. “Well, Tomorrowland is what’s expressed to us at SANDAG. It’s tunnels under everything, it’s some hyper-loop coming down the (Interstate 15,) it’s 100-mile-anhour trains going all over the place.... All of these plans being presented at SANDAG with Tomorrowland is only going to increase transit to get it to 10 percent.

Testimony from the Medical Examiner’s Office showed that the victim of a home invasion suffered 142 knife wounds. The autopsy startled even vetran observers when the results were announed. The victim, Marjorie Gawitt, was killed during the home invasion. Prosecutors suggested that defendants Ian Bushee, 37, and Malissa James, 26, may well face murder charges. The defendants were arrested in a nature preserve near Agua Hedionda Lagoon, not far from the scene of the home invasion and just hours after the attack. Neighbor Ted Viola testified he spotted the two jumping over a fence and into a nature preserve from his home, and he called the police. “I knew in my mind they were up to no good,” he said.

To this day, we can still get a rise out of the Brits by asking them, ‘did you liberate Caen yet?’ Once we liberated St. Lo, we would begin preparations for our campaign to liberate Paris. This was to become known as ‘the big breakout.’
It was during this campaign that Allied B-24’s conducted bombing raids with an estimated 1500 to 1800 bombers flying in formation and dropping bombs, attempting to bomb the Germans into submission, or, at a minimum, to make the forward movement of Allied ground troops easier.
Unfortunately, disaster struck. Allied bombers killed an estimated 400 to 500 Allied soldiers in a major ‘friendly fire’ incident. The only General killed during this campaign, General McNary, was killed by friendly fire during one of these bombing raids. The only General I ever saw on the front lines was General Eisenhower.
After the bombing raids we took off and on July 25th we liberated St. Lo. In spite of the cleared land, thanks to the bombing raids, the Germans still

put up a tremendous fight . . . but, now, Patton’s tanks entered into the equation. With the open country, his tanks could move quickly. We had big firefights until we got to Mortain . . . we were no longer fighting in the hedgerow country . . then Patton’s tanks really moved. I am persuaded to this day, however, that if the Germans had not had a second front to fight in Russia, we would still be fighting there. They were ferocious scrappers and we were fortunate to make the progress we did.
Jack was asked the age-old question every interviewer asks every military man who was in combat: “Did you ever kill one of the enemy?”
“Yes,” he said, “everyone does ask that. And the answer is: you just never know. Even when I manned the machine gun during the big breakout . . . I never knew if I hit anyone. I fired a lot of rounds at a lot of targets, a lot of hedgerows, a lot of trees . . . but did I ever kill an enemy? I honestly don’t know.” Before long, Jack and his comrades in arms would liberate Paris. They had to march 10-15 miles per day to get there, but some were able to catch a ride on tanks and 2 1/2 ton trucks; bring peace to the world, thanks to Dick and me.

Patton’s tanks led the way and wiped out the remaining resistance. On August 25th, it happened. Paris was liberated.
“It took us four weeks, but we got there. We were strafed by the Luftwaffe four or five times . . .but we kept moving. I saw the movie “Private Ryan,” and it was a pretty good depiction of what was happening . . . but a couple areas they were way off. They would show a group of soldiers sitting around talking. That seldom happened. We never gathered in groups. We kept dispersed. Even on a march we stayed about 10 yards away from each other. But right when we were on the outskirts of Paris, in a suburb known as Nozay, we received orders to stop. Our Captain John Gorn radioed back, “Why do you want us to stop? We’re right on the outskirts of Paris?!”
He was told that General LeClerc, the famous French General, wanted the honor of marching into a liberated Paris, so the Americans should wait until he accomplished that.
‘That’s a bunch of BS, we’re going in!’ . . . said Captain Gorn, and so we did. We were the first Allied

they had become mechanized!
He’s spoken five or six times at our Hidden Valley Kiwanis Club and we always invite him back again and again as he is so interesting.
Regular readers of The Paper will also recognize Dick Huls as a regular contributor to “The Pastor Says” - and, in fact, Dick is this week’s featured pastor. Check him out on Page 10.
Dick is a long time Kiwanian, recently serving as President of the Escondido Kiwanis Club (the noon club - which meets on Thursdays at Cocina del Charro in Escondido.) He is also an apiarist (a fancy word that means ‘beekeeper.’ But Dick is so much more than a beekeeper; he is an authority on bees, their needs, their culture, and the vital
Another special person in my life is the subject of this week’s cover story. Jack Port - a bona fide Amerian hero whose background on D-Day is not known by too many people on this side of the pond. But in France? They worship the man.
He was a young kid when he first hit Utah Beach. If you haven’t already read the cover story, go read it. A fascinating story about a fasinating man. I spoke with Jack last week and, at age 97, he’s got a good strong voice and recalls many, many memories. Some of which he’d just as soon forget - many others, he cherishes. Many old timers from Escondido will remember Jack Port from Port’s Mens Wear, a store he headed up for years.
troops to liberate Paris.
After the third day of being in Paris they moved us to Vincennes Park, which reminded me a lot of Balboa Park in San Diego. The German’s bombed the hell out of us but we didn’t have any casualties.” Jack told of another interesting tidbit about wartime and the liberation of Paris.
“All military units had a chaplain within their unit. Ours happened to be a Catholic priest. Father Fraes ordered all the men in our unit who were Catholic to stay behind so they could attend mass at Notre Dame Cathedral. This was a big deal to the Catholic soldiers. After our three days in Paris, the rest of us moved on to San Quentin, then on into Belgium. We hit the Siegfreid Line and we had Patton’s tanks with us. We cracked the line in three or four places.
We then got involved in what I think was the hardest fighting of all our combats. Hurtgen Forest. The worst battles ever. You had to keep your head down all the time or you were a goner. Frostbite got a lot of us. The

He has since moved to Oceanside where he says he’s quite comfortable.
Jack just left this past Tuesday for France where, once again, he’ll be an honored guest at the 75th Anniversary of D-Day. I reckon we’ll have a lot of new stories to hear from Jack when he returns. I have been truly blessed with some wonderful people in my life - people you should get to know as they would enrich your life as they have mine. These are only three folks that I treasure. There are many, many more and I’ll be proud to introduce you to them in coming weeks.
I’m a very happy man today - largely because of people like those I’ve introduced you to today. Treasure your family and friends - they are probably your most valuable assets you have in your life. Recognize them, acknowledge them, and let them know how much they mean to you. They might not be aware of how important they are to you and your happiness. Best to go ahead and tell ‘em!

firefights were unbelievable. You literally risked your life when you tried to take a bathroom break.
It was in the Hurtgen Forest where I got my next promotion. They jumped me up to Staff Sergeant. They offered me a battlefield commission but I declined it. I didn’t want to be a 2nd Lieutenant. I just wanted to get out of the war alive. I had a great deal of respect for 1st Lieutenants but damned little for anyone at the level of Captain or greater. All they seemed interested in was nominating themselves for medals. We had about 180-200 men in our unit when the combat began in the Hurtgen Forest. We had about 90 at the end, a great many of them lost to frostbite. I had frostbite on my right hand and I remember this buddy of mine took my hand and placed it under his armpit to warm my hand. He was killed the next day.
It’s really hard to know and understand war unless and until you’ve been in the thick of it. I’ve seen close buddies die, some with their guts streaming out of their bodies; others just disappeared; some lost arms, some lost legs; we all lost something out there. We’d see one of our buddies get hit, we’d call for a Medic, and we’d move on. There was no other choice.
Jack and his unit was finally relieved. They were moved to Luxembourg for rest, relaxation, and recuperation. Fresh clothes, showers, and they had been moved by truck! No more long marches. Or so it seemed. “We woke up one morning to find the town of Eupen had been retaken by the Germans. They were only 30 kilometers from us . . . and were behind us! Some rest and recuperation! We were cut off from our other units and I manned a machine gun for five days!
Bastogne was near us as well and they were going through hell. Finally, the weather cleared and our Air Corps came in and saved the day. While we were in France the Germans bombed the hell out of the cities, towns and villages. They didn’t care how much damage they did. Later, however, when we finally entered Germany, they moved away from the towns and villages and took to the hills because they didn’t want us to destroy their towns and villages.
While on this campaign we fought with the 442nd Regiment, an all Japanese Volunteer Unit; one of the finest units we ever fought with.
Strange. We fought with the Japanese volunteer unit . . .but there were no African Americans allowed to be in combat. They were restricted to menial jobs . . . as hospital orderlies, or kitchen help. And today our Commander in Chief is AfricanAmerican.”
We continued on into the German town of Prun . . .then we liberated Munich. There was lots of open country so the tanks moved freely. We liberated two concentration camps, though I didn’t particpate in that action, nor did I ever enter a camp. We were just outside of Austria when the war ended in May of 1945.
I remember a ‘Willie and Joe’ cartoon in the Stars and Stripes newspaper. It showed these two sad-sack soldiers with one saying . . . “If every person had to do one day of combat, there’d never be another war.’ That was right on target. It hit home with all of us.
It was time to go home. The Army had come up with a plan to determine who went home first. It as a point system. You got five points for each medal. Jack had a Purple Heart, a Bronze Star, the D-Day Landing medal . . .there’s 15 points. You got one point for every month of service. Jack had been in for almost two years . . .but others had been in four, five years. Jack wasn’t scheduled to go home under the point system but, remember those strange twists of fate in Jack’s military career? It happened again.
Those soldiers who had less than 110 points were to be shipped back stateside to undergo jungle training, and then be shipped to the Pacific Theatre of War.
This year over 2,900 bills were introduced in the State Legislature, an excessive number in my opinion. All those bills had to pass by the “house of origin” deadline on May 31st. Any bills that failed to pass are held for now, though some will become two-year bills to be considered again next year.
Several of my bills beat the deadline, including Assembly Bill 1352, which strengthens local mental health boards and oversees community mental health systems to improve care to patients. Assembly Bill 9, which I jointly authored with Assemblymembers Reyes and Friedman, extends the time frame for filing a sexual harassment complaint from one to three years. To provide more sources of water for our arid region, AB 1304 will allow water districts to purchase water from tribal governments and has been assigned to the Senate Natural Resources and Water Committee. My co-authored bills also include AB 526, which streamlines access to medical care for over 200,000 uninsured children

“At that point I had it,” said Jack. “I had been in contact with the enemy for 199 straight days and I was fed up with war. I was not going to the Pacific. I’ve had it!” So Jack came home to North Carolina for jungle training. And then a funny thing happened. Another one of those twists of fate. The war in Japan ended.
Jack was given a 30 day furlough and came home to

in California; AB 1116, to ensure that California’s first responders have access to trained peer support teams; and AB 128, which requires persons purchasing horses at auctions to sign a sworn statement agreeing to comply with the prohibition on the sale or resale of horses for slaughter.
Once voted out of their house of origin, all bills must be approved by the alternate house no later than September 13. This final floor vote is often the only time members not assigned to a bill’s specific committees actually see the bill. After approval by both houses, the Governor will have until October 13 to sign or veto all legislation. The next few months will be very busy in Sacramento.

first broke at Bletchley Park in England. Instead, Elizabeth Friedman decoded Enigma machine codes used by German Naval Intelligence which broke various spy rings in America and South America, and which placed Nazi spy gangsters behind bars in America and elsewhere in the Pacific Theater. There are excellent books and articles such as "Elizabeth Friedman,The Woman Who Saved America From the Nazis." In April 2019, the U. S. Senate passed a resolution "Honoring the Life and Legacy of Elizabeth Smith Friedman, Cryptanalyst." Elizabeth Friedman was a true genius which the FBI sadly covered-up for years. But, in keeping things in proper perspective, she was no where close to the towering genius and unequaled Enigma Code-breaker, Alan Turing, in England. World historians are all in full-agreement on that score. And Mr. Friedrich Gomez nailed it perfectly, in his cover story "Top Secret Weapons of WWII" published May 16, 2019. The best cover story I have ever read on the subject. My uncle served in WWII and we have proud albums of his courageous service. From Arlene Anne Tibbets, North San Diego County.

“Oz” Has Two Links to Valley Center "The Wizard of Oz" is this year's theme at the San Diego County Fair, but the Valley Center History Museum is calling attention to two connections the town has to the famous story, and has placed a photo exhibit on display spotlighting the links. Actor Jack Haley, who played the Tin Man in the 1939 version "Oz", had a home locally and was a cattle rancher at the time. Although appearing in dozens of Hollywood films, he served as president of the San Diego County Hereford Breeders Assn. His home was lost in the wildfire of 2003. The display on Haley features a photo autographed by the actor.

Historically Speaking by Tom Morrow
Six U.S. Presidents of Controversy
There are six Presidents whom students of history should study to understand what made America the dominant global nation. Today’s young people, for the most part, pay little attention to history and take for granted America’s position in the world. It was no accident how we got here. There was a lot of kicking and screaming, name-calling and even threats of “impeachment.” The nation’s “White House” has been occupied by some rather controversial figures.
While today’s President Donald Trump has an easy “love him or hate him” style, he isn’t that much different than five other controversial presidents. There was Theodore “Teddy” Roosevelt, the turn-of-the 20th century president who found himself in the Oval Office due to the assassination of President William McKinley.
Roosevelt, a Republican, believed in a strong Navy. He had the Navy’s “Great White Fleet” circle the globe to demonstrate our nation’s growing power. “T.R.” believed in his “Big Stick” foreign policy – “Walk softly but carry a big stick.”
T.R. oversaw the historic, but controversial building of the Panama Canal, opening the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific, cutting travel time in half from the east to west hemispheres.
Roosevelt was placed in the vice presidency by the Republicans to get rid of him. As governor of New York, he had been such a thorn to old-guard politicians they wanted to put him where they thought he couldn’t do any harm. It backfired. Once in the presidency, T.R. created havoc in both government and business with a vast variety of reforms, (sound familiar?) Among other monikers, he became known as the “Trust Buster.”
Franklin D. Roosevelt often has been called America’s greatest president. He served more than 12 years, guiding the nation through the dark years of the 1930s Great Depression into five years of World War II. Dozens of books have been written on FDR, making his presidency the pivotal time of the 20th century. Many of his policies and actions were challenged in the courts and remain a subject of controversy.
Arguably, one of our best chief executives was Harry S. Truman. During the 20th century, he was the only high school graduate to become president. Known among detractors as “His Accidency,” Truman became president in 1945, when Roosevelt died a few weeks into his fourth term.
As vice president, he wasn’t told about the $2 billion atom bomb proj-
ect until after assuming the Oval Office. Only five months later, Truman made the decision to drop the two bombs on Japan. It was one of history’s most important, yet controversial decisions. The “Cold War” began with Truman and lasted for more than 40 years until Ronald Reagan caused the Soviet Union to go broke trying to keep up militarily. Reagan was one of the nation’s most charismatic chief executives. Staunchly antiCommunist, Reagan dedicated himself to ending the Cold War. And, today if you support, defend, or are upset, confused, baffled, and dismayed with President Trump, you might try spending a few hours studying arguably the most controversial of our presidents: Andrew Jackson.
During the War of 1812, Jackson led a force of inexperienced volunteers against overwhelming British forces to win the Battle of New Orleans. He had at least two duels during his tumultuous life, and was the only president to serve in both the Revolutionary War and the War of 1812. Maj. Gen. Andrew Jackson, (a title he gave himself), was committed to representing and protecting the “Common Man,” a banner carried by several future chief executives. As president between 1829 and 1837. Jackson might have been the closest we’ve had to dictatorship. Some would argue FDR should be on that list. Today’s president seems beyond bombastic and controversial because of instantaneous world-wide mass media, whereas Jackson might have been more explosive, but there was only word-of-mouth, often delayed newspaper reports to keep the nation informed.
Jackson forever changed American history, squarely setting the executive branch on an equal footing with Congress by having the ability to shape law and government policies. He believed the presidency should have broad authority. Jackson was widely criticized for expanding the power of the presidency. Like others, he was known for rewarding his supporters with government jobs and the threat of “impeachment” loomed over the Capitol.
During his watch, democracy flourished, but at the same time the economy and the Native American population suffered. The placement of Jackson on the $20 bill is ironic. He vehemently opposed paper money, making his goal the destruction of the National Bank. In his farewell address to the nation, he cautioned about paper money. Students of history should enjoy comparing “Andy” Jackson to Donald Trump.

Escondido, then returned to North Carolina to get his discharge. He cheefully became an ordinary citizen again.
Jack has never gone back to England. He has way too many friends in France to spend valuable time in England. Friends who have become like family. He has gone back a number of times to visit Normandy, the beaches . . . Omaha, Utah, as well as the British and Canadian beaches - he has stood on a podium at Normandy with Senator John Kerry. He has town Mayors and its citizens who treat him as though he were King. They’ve held parades in his honor. “The French love the Americans,” he says. “And they love me . . . and I love them right back. It’s always a treat to go back and visit my ‘familes’ in France.”
Remember earlier, when we talked a bit about medals? Jack accumulated quite a few. We only touched on several. How’s this for a list of medals:
Order National de La Legion D ' Honneur. Belgium Fourrgere Medal Libertee Medal of Bayeux European Campaign Medal ...5 Campaigns D Day Landing Medal Bronze Star Medal Purple Heart WW II Victory Medal France Overlord Medal WW IIAmerican Campaign Medal European Occupation Medal Presidential Citation Medal
“This past June I was invited by the Duke and Duchess of Luxembourg to receive their Legion Of Honneur. Be their guest for one week but was unable to because I already had made commitments to be part of the D Day ceremonies the first week of June.....Their ceremony was to be the last week of June and there was no way I could spend 10 days or two weeks over there to wait for that ceremony.”
Quite a story for a young kid who was born in Los Angeles, but moved to Escondido around 1927 or 1928 at the tender young age of 4 or 5.
His family came from humble
beginnings, living briefly in Mexicali before his mom said, ‘no, I can’t raise my family here. We are going to move.” They drove into Southern California and approached Lake Hodges. When they saw Escondido, that was going to become their home. They had $14 and three kids. There were only about 1100 people in the valley at that time.

Eventually, Jack’s dad opened Port’s Men’s Wear, at 214 East Grand Avenue, in downtowna Escondido, an upscale mens clothing store. After the war, young Jack went to work there and stayed there till he closed the store and retired in 1975.
Before the war, Jack had worked at Consolidated Aircraft, later to become Convair. He kept getting deferments from the draft. He was safe. But he didn’t like the deferment. A war was on and he felt it was his patriotic duty to be part of it. So, he volunteered for the draft and, well, the rest is history.

Editor’s Note: Sadly, Jack’s wife, Elaine, passed away last September. Jack has some health issues but sounds strong and full of energy. When we spoke to him he was preparing too leave for France for the 75th Anniversary of D-Day, as an honored guest. Again!

Let’s hear what you have to say!
There is an old saying that you can bring a horse to water but you can’t make it drink. That expression has been used to describe many situations, but I’m not sure if it has even been applied to a fishing pole. Fisherman would love to be able to just stick their poles in the water and fish would continually bite. Wishful thinking. However, it can’t be denied that fishing poles have come a long way. A very long way. The earliest record of anything even remotely resembling a fishing pole is from written Chinese records in about 2000 B.C. There were mentions of “rods”, which were actually pointed sticks or bones about an inch long. They were referred to as gorges, which were used to fish from boats. A line was attached with a short appendage, and the first recorded bait was, you guessed it, rice. After all, these were the Chinese.
Longer poles were later devised from tree branches, therefore allowing for fishing from a shore. It was also believed that Egyptians also started fishing, possibly around 1000 B.C., and used bamboo poles. Around the time of Plato, 400 B.C., there were writings that indicated that fishing had evolved to the point where there were now barbed hooks used, as well as rods and lines. However, the rods needed to be sturdy and also flexible, especially to catch large fish. Mediterranean fisherman devised a solution for the pole by using a plant known as ferula. The line was made of horsehair or woven flax, and the top of a bronze hook was put over the line to protect it from breaking. Fisherman were quick to learn that fish would rise to the surface of the water to eat new hatches of various flies. Soon, the first fly fishing of bait was devised, which was most likely a piece of red wool with rooster feathers attached. Therefore, the dual purpose of simulating a fly, as well as keeping the lure afloat, was achieved. However, no reels had been invented, so fisherman had to pull the line by either using the stick, or fishing pole, or their hands to set the hook. They would then need to pull in the line with their hands. The fishing pole would not be significantly improved for more than a thousand years. A book was written in 1496 in England by a nun Dame Juliana Berners, titled Treatyse of Fysshynge with an Angle. This book described artificial flies, as well as discussed the extending of fishing poles to as long as 18 to 22 feet. Woven horsehair became the most popular form of fishing line until the advent of the filament line centuries later. I t was in the 1600s that the reel was added to the rod. The first reels were wooden spools with a metal ring which fitted over the fisherman’s thumb. But through the late
1700s reels were common which were made with such heavy European woods as lance-wood or greenheart. By the 1900s, fishing poles made of bamboo were being manufactured, and silk was replacing horsehair. Bamboo rods would give way to fiberglass or carbon fiber, and nylon replaced the silk. Soon, plastics were used to mold lures to replicate natural fish food.
Nowadays, poles have become very lightweight, which enables a fisherman to feel the slightest tug. Lines are now designed to prevent breakage, or fish with teeth from biting through it. Lines come in all sizes and shapes. Most poles are made of carbon fiber, and reels have been developed for every type of fishing imaginable, including fly fishing and deep sea fishing. Certainly, fishing pole collectors have not been disappointed. Try these sales.
President John F. Kennedy’s monogrammed fly fishing rod which he presented to White House chef Rene Verdon, sold for nearly $1800 at auction. Bing Crosby’s three fishing rods went for nearly $600 at auction, and Glenn Ford’s fishing rod and travel case went for almost $500. However, an historic J.C. Conroy and Company antique fly rod sold for $8250 at a Lang’s auction in November 2007, while a rare early Norris antique rod sold for $16,000. The rod belonged to John Moores, former owner of the San Diego Padres baseball team, and fly fishing companion of former President Jimmy Carter.

Kanika is an 8-year-old Chihuahua looking for a home of her own. Kanika is blind, so it takes her some time to get comfortable with strangers and new environments.

To see if she is the perfect match for you, meet Kanika at our Escondido Campus! Her adoption fee includes her spay, current vaccinations, permanent microchip identification, a certificate for a free veterinary exam, waived enrollment fee for medical insurance from PetFirst and a license for residents in the city limits of Carlsbad, Del Mar, Encinitas, Escondido, Imperial Beach, Oceanside, Poway, San Diego, San Marcos, Santee, Solana Beach and Vista.

The Pastor Says...
Pastor Richardd Huls (Retired)
New experiences are both a challenge and rewarding. My most recent one was a destination wedding to Italy for a granddaughter. I was the officiant, a privilege for a grandparent. Getting to Italy and making all the preparations gave me thought to reflect on both the ceremony and meaning of marriage. Of course, weddings and marriages are not unique to any one place, People have tied the knot as far back as the Garden of Eden with ADAM AND EVE. Since then, every culture and people’s group have had ceremonies of some type to give a
sense of unity to the sexes for both procreation and pleasure. For the most part, those ceremonies took place in familiar surroundings, such as religious centers, nature settings, justice of peace offices, or a venue that specialized in weddings. But these destination weddings are something else. They are substantially more costly and take more preparation. However, they are unique. Perhaps because of their uniqueness, it helps keep marriages together. Yet, does the place of the wedding determine its longevity? I think not.
Regardless of where the ceremony is held, the old standby for a successful marriage is commitment, trust, love, patience, and I believe, the belief that God somehow mysteriously brings two people of the opposite sex together to be united in marriage, regardless of where the vows are taken. Vows are important. They help define the nature and hope of the relationship. It is good to review them annually, perhaps each anniversary, to see how well the marriage is doing.

Escondido • Mayor Paul “Mac” Mcnamara Greetings Escondido!
Sometimes it is tough to write these columns because on the one hand, I would like to share with you all the good things that people in Escondido are doing, but on the other I want to discuss and inform everyone of some of the big challenges we have facing us as a community. I promised myself I would try to do both.
So, I’ll start with the “bad” news. The state is mandating that we put more money into unfunded retirement. As you might guess, that means there is less money in the budget for other services and since the election people expect more services like better parks etc. not less. The good news is (if you can call it that) we are not alone with this challenge. More to follow in upcoming weeks. Went to two events during the holiday weekend that were really well done. The VFW Memorial Day service at Oak hill cemetery and the Heritage Car Show at Grape Day park. If you haven’t attended, you should check them out next year. Thank you to all the participants and organizers. I also had a chance to preview the mural that is going to go up at the Escondido Arts Partnership. Look for that grand opening. Thank you.
Semper Fi, Mac

Intelligent, patriotic and good looking too
That’s our customers here at the Computer Factory. It is possible that a few folks might fall a couple of clicks short of being bona fide 10s, but two out of three’s not bad. As far as intelligence and patriotism are concerned, no one can hold a candle to our customers. With Staples in the process of closing their store just down the block from us and the 140,000 square foot Fry’s across the street beginning to look like a vacant lot, we’re starting to feel a little lonesome.

While we really aren’t sure why our customers are so much better looking than those folks lurking in the aisles of the big box retailers, we do suspect that there may be some negative genetic influences at play. Anyway, mother always told us that it isn’t polite to discuss the physical attributes of the less fortunate so we will concentrate on the other two factors, intelligence and patriotism.
Intelligence: Our customers don’t buy new “retail PCs” because they know the difference between “retail PCs” and “enterprise workstations.” The major emphasis in the design of “retail PCs” is price competition. Cheaper is better. The “enterprise workstation” specifications are developed by the same professional ITs that service and maintain the “enterprise” networks. An “enterprise workstation” with essentially the same sounding specification as a “retail PC” will cost two to three times as much as its retail cousin, why? Because all of the components in the “enterprise workstation” and notebooks (power supply, motherboard, RAM, hard drive, optical drive, CPU assembly, fans, switches and hinges) are high quality and high reliability. They also come with multi-year warranties. The components in your “retail” Dell and HP are the cheapest they can find that are likely to survive the sinby our scholarship finalists will be featured and as always, the audience will be given the opportunity to vote for their favorites during intermission. The finalists with the most votes will receive the top scholarship. Last year over $17,000 was awarded during the two shows. As our fundraising activities continue we are hoping to match or exceed this amount this year. The scholarship finalists are selected in mid-May from San Diego high school seniors who plan to continue their musical education after graduation. They submitted applications in April, then performed before a panel of judges. Three of the six finalists will perform during the Saturday show, and the remaining three will perform during the Sunday Show. It is thrilling to hear these talented musicians sing or play an instrument. Tickets may be purchased online at www.rbchorale.org or by any Chorale member. Ticket prices are: Preferred Seating/$35; General Admission/$25; Seniors, Students, Military/$22; Children (Infants-age 12)/$7. Net proceeds benefit the RB Chorale Scholarship Fund. Donations to the scholarship fund may also be made through the website, as well as additional information about the scholarship program.their community with dignity and
gle year retail warranty period. That’s why a three to five year old “enterprise workstation” or notebook is a better buy even if at the same price as a new “retail PC.” But they don’t cost as much, they are typically half the price of a new “retail” PC. It’s a no-brainer.
Patriotic: Our customers love a good deal but they also love the USA. Dell, HP and Apple are not computer makers. They don’t design, build and test PCs. Their PCs and workstations are designed and manufactured, mainly in China. Nothing comes from the USA except the advertising “bloatware” that they have foreign manufacturers load on the “retail PC” hard drives. When you buy a new Dell or HP
computer, a major part of your money goes directly to the Chinese manufacturers. When you buy a refurbished “corporate workstation”, 100% of the purchase price stays right here in the good ole USA supporting our local and national economy.
So there you have it. If you’re smart, patriotic and good looking we’ll see you soon. If you’re a couple of fries short of a happy meal, hate apple pie and need to hang a pork chop around your neck to get your dog to come home, you better scoot on over to Fry’s while you’ve still got time.
