There have been 43 U.S. Presidents in our country’s relatively young history (actually 44 if you count Grover Cleveland’s non-consecutive terms), yet there is much about them which is not commonly known. Such delicious details were never mentioned in mainstream history books. As a consequence, we might be shocked if we were to meet them, face-to-face. If we were to step into a time machine and journey back to the era of our Founding Fathers there may be some unexpected surprises waiting for us; things we may have overlooked or perhaps just took for granted.
For example, most scholars are in full agreement that George Washington and many of his contemporaries, such as Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, et al, most likely had British accents! Historians point out that during the mid to late 1700s, “The colonials would have been expected to have spoken with a discernible British accent during this time, even with the influx of settlers from other parts of Europe.” Well, how about that? That makes perfectly sound sense, but, I just never thought it through. Now that we’re going down that road, what other unexpected surprises might we experience?
GEORGE WASHINGTON. Aside from being our very first U. S. President, Washington was notable for other, lesser known, facts. For instance, he initially refused to accept his presidential salary (something unheard of in contemporary times!). But, he acquiesced and received his annual $25,000 salary. On record, George Washington was also the wealthiest American president in history. His total assets were estimated at well over $500-million! Many myths surrounded our first president, such as the still-widely repeated belief that he had wooden teeth. This, of course, was not the case. While it is true that George Washington wore dentures, they were, in fact, made of an admixture of gold, ivory, lead, and animal teeth. However, it was no rumor that Washington was, physically, among the most powerful of all our presidents. His brute strength enabled him to bend a horse shoe with his bare hands! THOMAS JEFFERSON. Jefferson, our 3rd American president, was among the most intellectual figures of his day, along with Benjamin Franklin, John Adams, and others. Aside from being the primary author of our Declaration of Independence, he was also president of the American Philosophical Society. He possessed a scientific mind and was forever fascinated with linguistics (the study of languages). The Paper - 760.747.7119
This fascination motivated Jefferson to read, write, and speak several languages (fluently), such as French, Greek, Italian, and German. Jefferson was an eclectic inventor and invented an early version of the swivel chair, a forerunner of presidential chairs today. He is the only American president to have founded a seat of higher learning, the University of Virginia. His intellectual prowess has long been recognized by historians. When President John F. Kennedy saluted Nobel Prize laureates at a White House dinner, Kennedy rose and with chalice in hand toasted Jefferson in front of the greatest luminary minds at the dinner table, “This is the greatest gathering of human intellect, since Thomas Jefferson dined alone!” JAMES MADISON.
Our 4th U.S. President, James Madison, holds the distinction of being Princeton’s first student to graduate from their hallowed halls. While he was an academic pioneer in this regard, he was also the most diminutive, standing only 5’ 4” in height. His remarkably small stature made him the shortest of all U. S. Presidents and his weight of less than 100 pounds was less than the average American teenage girl! JOHN QUINCY ADAMS. John Quincy Adams was, clearly, not bashful in being seen in his ‘birthday suit.’ In fact, he was quite proud of himself in the raw, as the old expression has it. Adams would often go skinny dipping, without the slightest hesitation, in the Potomac River, preferring a dip in the early morning hours. This ritual of swimming in

Washington D. C.’s main waterway – always in the nude – became a wellknown practice of our 6th U. S. President of the United States!
ANDREW JACKSON. President Andrew Jackson, nicknamed Old Hickory was, certainly, among the most physically powerful of all our U. S. Presidents. But, along with his brute strength, he had a temper to match. He is one political figure you should best stay on his good side. Prior to his presidency, on May 30, 1806 Jackson killed a man in a duel; the man had accused him of cheating on a horse race wager and then the same man insulted Jackson’s wife, Rachel. Historians describe Andrew Jackson as, “Argumentative, physically violent and fond of dueling with pistols as a solution to social conflicts.” Jackson was also a most fearless man, which made him even more formida-

ble to any potential adversaries of his era. In one particular duel in which Jackson prevailed against his accuser, Charles Dickinson, Jackson received Dickinson’s first bullet to his chest near his heart. Despite this bullet shot, the future president remained calm, placed his hand over the nearfatal wound to stop the flow of blood and stayed standing just long enough to re-cock his pistol (his first shot misfired). The scenario puzzled Dickinson who saw smoke and dust coming from Jackson’s coat and Jackson clutching his chest. “My God!” Dickinson is reported to have screamed at the top of his lungs, “Have I missed him?!” Amidst this gun smoke, the ghostly image of Jackson still standing erect terrified Dickinson who, according to dueling practices, was required to remain in place while Jackson slowly took his time in aiming straight at him! As stated, Jackson had fired earlier but the flint hammer stopped halfcocked, not counting as a legitimate shot. This time, Jackson’s bullet found its mark, dropping Dickinson to the ground. The agony of death for Dickinson was prolonged as he succumbed to death later that night. (As recorded in the National Review of 1806.) The indisputable fact that Andrew Jackson was, remarkably, without fear is a testimonial of his character. The attending doctor was amazed at Jackson’s mental constitution in the face of death, “I don’t see how you stayed on your feet after that wound,” he would remark to the future president. Jackson’s reply stunned the doctor, “I

would have stood up long enough to kill him if he had put a bullet in my brain.”
Andrew Jackson was considered to be a notoriously bad marksman, and he was aware of that fact. His intrepid nature had him calculate that he might have to take a bullet first before he could re-steady his nerves, remain erect, and with careful aim, take his ‘killing shot.’ For the record, Charles Dickinson was the only man Jackson killed in a duel, even though he participated in several such outings. His adversary that day, Charles Dickinson, on the other hand had successfully killed 26 men in various duels – until he met Andrew Jackson.
Jackson recovered from his chest wound but suffered persistent chronic pain for the remainder of his life. He was never prosecuted for the charge of murder and the deadly encounter had little or no effect on Andrew Jackson’s successful presidential campaign in 1829. It is only fair to note that it was not uncommon for men in the early 1800s (especially in the South) to view gun dueling as a time-honored tradition. President Andrew Jackson, our 7th U.S. President, was a most colorful individual, in more ways than one. He had a pet parrot which he carefully taught how to swear like a drunken sailor. The parrot’s wide vocabulary of curse words and phrases greatly amused the president to no end. However, during the president’s funeral, the parrot had to be removed from the ceremonies because it would not stop swearing! Perhaps, Andrew Jackson knew of this eventual scenario. If so, the colorful and mischievous president, indeed, had the last laugh, via his

Some scholars claim that 150 years before America elected its first black president, Barack Obama, we may already have had our first ‘gay’ president, in the person of James Buchanan, our 15th president of the United States. James Buchanan holds the distinction of being America’s only bachelor president in our storied history. Despite the fact that Buchanan had courted the fairer sex and was even once engaged, there is no shortage of historical references to Buchanan’s gay lifestyle by his own contemporaries of the day, as well as from today’s historians in review. While his biographers, such as Jean Baker, argue that Buchanan was asexual or celibate, several scholars have put forth arguments that he was, indeed, homosexual or bisexual, as stated by sociologist, James W. Loewen, and authors Robert P. Watson and Shelley Ross. One particular source of interest to historians who scrutinize such details is the fact that Buchanan maintained a close and intimate relationship with William Rufus King (who became Vice President under the presidential administration of Franklin Pierce). The two men lived together in a Washington boardinghouse for 10 full years from 1834 until King’s departure for France in the year 1844. King, himself, referred to the relationship as a “communion,” and the two men often attended social functions together. Even contemporaries of these two men, such as Andrew Jackson called them, “Miss Nancy” and “Aunt Fancy” (the former being a 19th-century euphemism for an effeminate man). Many other indi-
never have gone down there! You know all engineers go to Heaven. Send him up here!"
Satan says, "No way. I like having an engineer on the staff. I'm keeping him." od says, "Send him back up here or I'll sue." "Yeah, right," Satan laughs, "and where are you going to get a lawyer?"
Who Thinks of These?
If it's true that we are here to help others, then what exactly are the others here for?
If lawyers are disbarred and clergymen defrocked, then doesn't it follow that electricians can be delighted, musicians denoted, cowboys deranged, models deposed, tree surgeons debarked, and dry cleaners depressed? Do Lipton Tea employees take 'coffee breaks?' What hair color do they put on the driver's licenses of bald men?
I thought about how mothers feed their babies with tiny little spoons and forks, so I wondered what do Chinese mothers use, Toothpicks?
Why do they put pictures of criminals up in the Post Office? What are we supposed to do, write to them? Why don't they just put their pictures on the postage stamps so the mailmen can look for them while they deliver the mail?
viduals of the day plainly noted that there was “something unhealthy in the president’s attitude.” Historian, James W. Loewen, has done extensive research into Buchanan’s personal life and remains convinced that President Buchanan was gay. Loewen is the author of the acclaimed book, “Lies Across America,” which examines how history inaccurately portrays figures and events in America’s past. BENJAMIN HARRISON. It is, somewhat, ironic that U. S. President Benjamin Harrison served as a brave Union colonel during the American Civil War and yet was not so brave around items we generally take for granted. For example, our 23rth U. S. President was forever afraid of electricity or anything to do with it, such as lightning, etc. Nicknamed “The Human Iceberg” because of his cold disposition, especially in the face of battle, Harrison had a phobia regarding electrical storms, lightning, or even electricity as a form of illumination, at least to some extent. As luck would have it, ex-military colonel, Benjamin Harrison, was installed as the 23rd American president when – of all things – electricity was first installed in the White House! From the first day of its installation, President Harrison was forever fearful of being electrocuted by this new-fangled electricity throughout the White House and, therefore, refused to touch the light switches which turned the interior lighting off and on!

Abraham Lincoln was once part owner of a saloon in Springfield, Illinois, called “Berry and Lincoln.” Even less known is the fact that the famous ‘Rail Splitter’ was a tremendously skilled wrestler of his day! In 1831, when Lincoln moved to New Salem, Illinois, he was soon confronted by a well-known bully by the name of Jack Armstrong. It was here where Armstrong challenged Lincoln to a wrestling match! Lincoln was a clerk at the time at a store known as Denton Offutt. To Armstrong’s misfortune, Lincoln accepted the wrestling challenge which quickly grabbed the town’s attention in the form of frenzied betting by the townspeople. Lincoln won the match and his challenger’s respect from that day onward. The town’s residents quickly learned of Abe’s supreme wrestling skills. As a young wrestler, Abraham Lincoln would only be defeated once out of approximately 300 matches! Now, that’s noteworthy! You don’t mess with our 16th president! RUTHERFORD B. HAYES. In 1876, Hayes was elected into presidential office as our 19th U. S. President in one of the most fiercely competitive and controversial elections in our nation’s history. Hayes lost the popular vote to Democrat Samuel J. Tilden but he won an intensely disputed electoral college vote (after a Congressional commission awarded him twenty contested electoral votes). However, today’s 2016 election year may prove to be far more controversial than during President’s Hayes’ – let’s just wait and see! Did you know that Alexander Graham Bell installed the very first White House telephone during Rutherford B. Hayes’ presidency? Well, it’s true! And guess what his telephone number was on this first White House telephone? Hmm, you may have guessed it – his telephone number was “One” (1). However, it was our 25th American president, William McKinley, who was the first presidential candidate to campaign using the telephone, according to his-

Julia commented “We’re glad to be able to provide this information in one place where it can be a fun event for the whole family.” Escondido Fire Department and Rincon Fire District have shared in the traditional goal of saving lives and property over many decades and will again team up to host this event. There will be a variety of displays to provide information about fire safety, disaster preparedness, and other quality of life issues. This free event, an annual tradition for over two decades, will be a fun and informational experience for all ages; talk to first responders, see firefighting equipment up close, learn about preventing fires, prepare for emergencies. Free refreshments and a giant inflatable slide will round out the event, and an inexpensive lunch will be available.

JAMES A. GARFIELD. Our 20th U. S. President met his undoing primarily because of his belief. Garfield believed, as did others, that the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln was a freak episode, due to the Civil War and, therefore, not likely to be repeated during his lifetime. As such, he saw no reason why the president should be guarded. This vulnerability was further compounded by the fact that Garfield’s movements and plans were often printed in the newspapers of the day. Garfield would be assassinated only 200 days into his presidency by a Charles J. Guiteau who shot the president twice, once in the back shattering a rib and embedding itself in his stomach and once in his arm. Upon being shot, Garfield exclaimed, “My God, what is this?!”
Against this dramatic backdrop of events there is a little known fact about our president that remains almost entirely unknown, today. Our 20th U. S. President had a highly unusual gift, a genuine jewel of trivia long forgotten over which he took much pride! President Garfield was ambidextrous, meaning he could write well with both his hands; however his ambidexterity took to higher ground – Garfield was not only able to write perfectly with both hands but he was also able to write a sentence in Latin with one hand and write it in Greek with the other hand, simultaneously! Wow, that’s using a most unique part of the human brain! ANIMAL LOVERS. .S. Presidents have long had a loveaffair with their pets, and this love did not end when they were elected to office. Andrew Jackson loved his parrot. President William Henry Harrison kept his pet billy goat at the White House. Zachary Taylor maintained his favorite horse on the White House lawns. Ulysses S. Grant was overly fond of horses, stemming back to his military days. Grant prided himself on a military mount and his expertise in handling any horse under reins. Grant particularly

Despite the menagerie of animals brought to the White House by various U.S. Presidents, the most exotic scenario, hands down, belongs to American presidents John Quincy Adams and Herbert Hoover. Regarding John Quincy Adams, his alligator was an unusual gift to the president from a French General. Adams rather enjoyed the startled reactions to his alligator-gift and continued showing off his exotic reptile to disbelieving guests! The fiercelooking alligator was, initially, kept in the White House’s unfinished East Room and its nearby bathtub. The scary intruder was eventually relocated to a different home.
Not to be outdone by John Quincy Adams’s administration, a hundred years later, President Herbert Hoover would come to possess not one, but, two pet alligators, both of which were sometimes allowed inside the White House, in the early 1930s! The two alligator pets belonged to Hoover’s younger son, Allan, who frequently presented them to terrified guests! President Hoover’s pet German shepherd, King Tut, was forever nervous around the two alligators, as was the president’s Secret Service agents, who kept a watchful eye over the reptiles! On one humorous occasion, when nervous guests witnessed one alligator mounting the other during mating season, a newspaper reporter recalled one small child shouting with excitement, “Look Mommy! They’re trying to make a wallet!” In regards to the Hoover family, they were a fascinating study, unto themselves. Prior to his presidency, the Hoover family resided in China for some time, during which the future president and his wife learned to speak fluent Mandarin Chinese.

PRESIDENT HARRY S. TRUMAN. Truman was the 33rd President of the United States (1945-1953) and his name, of and by itself, harbors a fun secret not widely known. Harry S. Truman was born on May 8, 1884, in Lamar, Missouri, the oldest child of John and Martha Truman. His parents, interestingly, chose the name “Harry” after his mother’s brother, however, they chose “S” as his middle initial, but the “S” never did stand for anything – it was just a letter followed by a period! Historians do add that Harry Truman’s parents chose “S” as his middle initial to please both of his grandfathers, Anderson Shipp Truman and Solomon Young. But, as stated, the middle initial was only a single letter and never was signed as anything but! MULTIPLE QUIZ TIME! There are many such colorful details and facts about our U. S.

On Sunday, June 5th, at about 02:05 AM officers from the Escondido Police Department were dispatched to the area of Broadway and Highway 78 regarding a serious injury collision. Upon arrival, officers discovered one driver had attempted to flee the scene on foot. The driver, Jose Uriostegui, 33 years old from Escondido, was detained by two uninvolved citizens.
According to involved party statements, and physical evidence at the scene, it appears Uriostegui was driving a black 2005 Ford F150 eastbound on Highway 78 at Broadway. A grey 2013 Nissan Altima was northbound on Broadway at Highway 78 where the collision occurred. The driver of the Altima, Lucrecia Vasquez, 27 years old, sustained serious life threatening injuries. Vasquez is six months pregnant and currently being treated at Palomar Memorial Hospital. There was one other 24 year old female passenger in the Altima who is currently being treated for moderate but nonlife threatening injuries. Officers developed probable cause to arrest Uriostegui for driving under the influence of alcohol. He was also unlicensed. Uriostegui was arrested for felony DUI, Felony hit and run, and driving without a driver’s license. Uriostegui was treated for minor injuries from the collision. He was later booked into the Vista Detention

On Wednesday, June 1st, at 12:42 a.m., a City of Carlsbad police officer was flagged by a citizen who reported a truck had gone off the hill and into the Lagoon in the area of Carlsbad Boulevard and Sequoia Avenue.
Carlsbad and Oceanside Fire Department personnel responded to the scene to assist. Responding officers found the point the truck went into the Lagoon was at Garfield Street. The truck was laying on its roof. The Fire Department used flares to check along the hillside for a driver of the vehicle. California State Parks Life Guards also responded.
Three officers went into the water to rescue anyone that might be inside the truck. Visibility did not allow them to see if anyone was inside. The officers left the water due to the vehicle’s instability and the water’s strong current conditions. I think it’s safe to assume that Hal would like to reconnect with this lady. A romantic at heart, Hal is pretty convinced that this young lass is the girl of his dreams.

Due to the water’s strong current conditions and darkness, members of the responding parties found it unsafe to retrieve the truck at the time.

The staff have always been tops in my book and this was reconfirmed by the treatment received from both physicians, nurses, and techs. It was only a 24 hour stay in hospital but it was an impressive one. High tech facilities, highly trained personnel . . . all of which adds up to a mighty professional hospital.
They do their jobs well and I am grateful for the care and attention.
The President and CEO of Palomar Medical Center, Bob Hemker, is doing a magnificent job. I was not fond of his predecessor, Mike Covert, and ran a number of cover stories and commentaries that outlined why. Covert is gone now . . . and he left Mr. Hemker with little money and a lot of debt. But Mr. Hemker is doing a great job of rebuilding the hospital. Good job.

myself in a conundrum however. I would prefer to vote for either Kristen Gaspar or Dave Roberts. If I and others elect one of these two, Abed remains mayor (something I'd prefer not be the case). If I and others elect Abed for supervisor, we get rid of him as mayor (yea) but we reward him for being a bad guy by giving him a better job. What to do? /s/Mary Brown

For the most part, I agree with Ms Valencik's comments regarding profanity in the Chuckles. However, I would go even further and say that I don't think it's appropriate anywhere, with rare exception. Aren't we better than that?
Also, although the numbers classify me as a senior citizen, I don't like to be constantly reminded of it via the plethora of jokes in the Chuckles. Occasional jokes on that subject are fine but there are far too many. Even with my comments above, I remain a loyal reader.

Editor Lyle, you definitely hit a home run with this weeks current issue. There is no way the 3rd district can have the likes of Sam Abed as a County Supervisor. The shenanigans and underhanded dealings that he has been a part of are legendary as you have so aptly pointed out.
My family and I have personally met Dave Roberts at several public functions and have always felt good after talking with him knowing that he listens to you and your concerns and answers them honestly. I wish you had time for another follow up article as I'm sure there is more you could show the public who enjoy reading your publication every week. Thank you for having the testosterone to write this current issue. Sincerely,

Escondido Police Lieutenant Saves a Life
On any ordinary day, Escondido Police Lieutenant Al Owens can be seen working as a day shift Watch Commander. He manages the activities of his team of patrol sergeants and officers, manages significant events in the city, and talks to community members about the troubles that they are experiencing.
Tuesday, May 24th, ended up being no “ordinary day.” At 1:18pm the Escondido Police and Fire Communication center received a 911 call regarding an adult female who was near a creek bed behind the Escondido Police and Fire Headquarters building. It was reported that the female had possibly overdosed on a narcotic and was not breathing.
Escondido Police Lieutenant Al Owens was inside of the headquarters building. Lieutenant Owens overheard the call and immediately responded to the creek bed, where he found the patient unconscious. He quickly evaluated her condition and determined that she was not breathing and did not have a pulse. Lieutenant Owens began CPR and the patient regained a pulse.

Well, if you got this one correct you need to take a bow! President Woodrow Wilson, our 28th leader, is the only American president to hold a doctorate (Ph.D), making him the most formally educated president in our country’s history! Despite the fact that Wilson was a slow learner (he didn’t learn to read untill age 10), he went on to earn a Ph.D in political science and history from John Hopkins University!
WHICH PRESIDENT WAS A COSMOPOLITAN FASHION MODEL? I know, it sounds unbelievable, but truth is often stranger than fiction! Take a stab at it and maybe be prepared for a surprise! A. GERALD FORD B. RONALD REAGAN C. BILL CLINTON D. BARACK OBAMA This is a tough one because everyone knows that former President Ronald Reagan was widely photographed as a model and even won the title of the “Most Nearly Perfect Male Figure Award” from the University of California in 1940, but that is not the correct answer, above! If you selected “A” above, well, I’m just pleased as punch over you! Yes, it’s true – President-to-be Gerald Ford worked as a male model in his late 20s and was even featured on the cover of Cosmopolitan magazine in April of 1942 in his Navy uniform! It is noteworthy to also point out that his future wife, Betty, was also a dancer and fashion model, who even signed with John Robert Powers modeling firm to help finance her dance education! Well, there you have it!
WHICH U. S. PRESIDENT WAS A LAS VEGAS STANDUP COMEDIAN? I know, this sounds incredulous, but the answer is one of the multiple choices below. Close your eyes, and take a chance! You may be in for a shock! A. John F. Kennedy B. Ronald Reagan C. Bill Clinton D. Barack Obama
This is no laughing matter if you got this right, because if you did, you get to go to the head of the class! This one is tricky because all of the presidents listed above were known for their wit and sense of humor. But, if you said “B” above, then you are something else! In 1954, Ronald Reagan’s acting career took a nosedive and in order to stay healthily employed, the future U. S. President did a standup comedy act in Las Vegas for a few weeks! Well, time for one last bonus question. So, be sure to put on your ‘thinking cap.’ Good luck!
WHICH PRESIDENT BELOW WAS A HIGH SCHOOL CHEERLEADER? A. JIMMY CARTER B. BILL CLINTON C. GEORGE W. BUSH D. BARACK OBAMA Hmmm, this is a hard one, no question. If you circled “C” for George W. Bush, then ra-ra-ra for you! George W. Bush certainly had the school spirit, and he proved it, time and again! Our 43rd U. S. President,

Elder Financial Abuse
Assembly Bill 1754, a bill I authored to protect vulnerable seniors and dependent adults, passed the Assembly Floor and will now head to the Senate.
AB 1754 will help elder and dependent adult victims of financial crimes deal with the severe emotional and financial trauma that can result from these crimes. AB 1754 sets up a pilot program in San Diego County to help these victims pay for mental health and financial counseling that may be necessary for their recovery. Victims will be reimbursed up to $3,000 from the California Victim Compensation Program, partly financed through federal matching funds, and from restitution, fines and penalty assessments ordered by the courts and paid by the criminals themselves.

The Department of Social Services reports that throughout California, as many as 1,600 cases of elder and dependent adult financial abuse are under investigation in any given month. In San Diego County alone, the Adult Protect Services agency has confirmed a total of 1,148 unique cases of elder and dependent adult financial abuse over the past year.
When a trusting senior loses their life savings, there are no assistance programs outside of the court process to help them. Many have no recourse and resort to depression and even suicide. Helping seniors find resources and support to rebuild their lives is the intent of my bill. Simply stated, elder abuse cannot be tolerated -- its victims must be protected. AB 1754 will help seniors regain their dignity and receive necessary assistance to help restore their independence and self-respect.

Just a short note to thank you for the non-endorsement of Sam Abed in your June 2nd issue of The Paper. If there ever was a man who should not be voted for anything, it is Mr. Abed. Although you referred to his awful history through past editions, I wish you had highlighted his racial attitude toward undocumented residents and especially to Hispanics.
Those of us who have been here for many years know his history.
I am a little disappointed that you endorsed his cohort, Marie Waldron, who along with Mr. Abed were two political climbers who used defenseless residents to reach their aims. No way would I vote for her either. Your endorsement of Duncan Hunter surprises me considering his recent "mistakes." I'll forgive you though because the "big fish" is the one that needs to be fried!

Historically Speaking by Tom Morrow
The Battle For Free-World Survival
Arguably, the “Battle of Britain,” which took place in the summer and fall of 1940, saved the free world from Nazi tyranny and possible world domination. After Adolf Hitler’s lightning success in capturing most of Western Europe using the German army’s “Blitzkreig” (lighting warfare) tactics, only Great Britain remained to be harnessed in the Nazi yolk of dictatorship. But all that stood in the way of German domination of England, Scotland, and Wales was the English Channel and the world’s most powerful flotilla: Britain’s Royal Navy.
At that time, German Luftwaffe (air force) was the most powerful in the world with more than 2,500 fighters and bombers; Britain’s Royal Air Force numbered less than 800 fighters and bombers. Probably around 600 usable aircraft was a more realistic number. Hitler decided that bombing British airfields and demolishing the RAF would be a prelude to a Channel crossing and land invasion from the French coast some 25 miles away. Luftwaffe leader and Hitler’s No. 2, Herrman Goering, underestimated the tenacity of the British people’s will to resist and the bravado of RAF pilots. In order to equalize the numbers, British pilots would have to shoot down invading German planes on a four-to-one ratio.
Hitler was confidant his bombers could overwhelm the British with brute force, knocking out coastal
defenses and shipping, eventually giving the Germans air control over the whole of southern England.
When the initial mission failed to destroy the RAF, Hitler launched a night-time bombing campaign, or as the British called it, “Blitz,” of London. So confident Goering was of his air force’s superiority, he bragged to Hitler that if any British bombs ever fell on Berlin, he mockingly told the Nazi leader that he could call the rotund air marshall, “Meyer,” (a Jewish name considered by the Nazis to be a supreme insult). When the first RAF bombs rained down on Berlin, no one knows what Hitler said to Goering, but it’s a good bet it wasn’t pleasant.
Hitler under estimated the stamina of the British people and the skill of RAF pilots and their aircraft. While the Me-109 fighter was a fast and agile aircraft, the RAF “Spitfire” was a superior weapon.
The Brits united under Prime Minister Winston Churchill’s leadership to defend their nation at all costs. They refused to give up, even as their cities were repeatedly bombed. The British had an advantage over the Germans: radar, which they invented. The Brits knew exactly when the Luftwaffe was coming, in what strength and at what altitude. RAF fighters, “Spitfires” and “Hurricanes,” kept German air raids at bay, but at great cost to the RAF. British and German aircraft factories were turning out planes as fast as possible to keep up with the daily destruction. Still, when the Battle of Britain ended, the British had lost some 900 aircraft to the Germans’ 2,300 planes. The RAF had nearly equaled their needed “four-to-one” combat ratio. Though the United States had yet to enter the war, President Roosevelt persuaded Congress to approve the “Lend-Lease” agreement, which sent ships, planes, guns, ammo, and desperately-needed food and medical supplies to the beleaguered British people. Historians generally agree that if the British nation had not stopped the Nazi aggression, an attack on North America would have

been imminent. That one air battle might very well have preserved our democratic way of life instead of living under a dictatorship.
One footnote to history – Goering asked his top fighter ace what he needed to defeat the British? Flight leader and Adolf Galland replied: “Give me a squadron of Spitfires.” Goering was not amused.

The Doctor is In!
Tooth Preservation or Implant Placement
Long term tooth versus implant survival rates
Technological advances in the development of implants to replace "hopeless" or missing teeth along with a high predictability of survival rates has lead to the increasing popularity and clinical success of implants. This could result in the extraction of a person's natural teeth, that are salvageable, on the convenience rather than as a result of a comparative analysis between the survival of a natural tooth and its implant counterpart. Faced with the option of restoring a natural tooth versus extracting it and placing a dental implant, the doctor should take the following as well as others into consideration:
1. Is the tooth or area restorable? 2. Will it be strong? 3. What is the long term prognosis of the tooth vs. implant? 4. Compliance of the individual for maintaining the tooth or implant? 5. Does patient have systemic condition ie. diabetes, heart conditions, periodontal conditions. Also, smoking status. 6. Past experiences with patients tooth loss? 7. Long term survival of individual?
These are just a few factors affecting the patient. Financially, the patient should consider the cost of implants as well. They may not make a lot of difference with a single tooth, but if multiple sites are proposed, the cost factor can go up tremendously. If the tooth is restored in many cases, it can have a survivability that may equal, or even outlast the prognosis of an implant. Implants require good bone to survive, and if the bone is not adequate, additional bone must be provided to the site including bone grafts and/or sinus lifts, etc. This may also add to both the expense and time required to place an implant. After an implant fails, the next step is placing another implant.

Researchers report significantly lower success rates for reimplantation than for the original implant. With a tooth that started in the mouth by nature, if it is restorable, it frequently will last a long time without the amount of bone required by an implant.
There are many things to consider in deciding whether to place an implant versus restoring the tooth. As doctors we have patients come in every day with the idea of removing a tooth and placing an implant. On the other hand, we, as practitioners, have to resist the impulse to automatically go with the patient's wishes look-

ing more thoroughly at the overall results. If the bone is adequate and the natural tooth cannot be restored then the implant is chosen.

On Friday, June 3rd, at 6:15 am, officers from the City of Carlsbad Police Department responded to a report of a burglary at a business in the 6300 block of Corte Del Abeto in the City of Carlsbad. The caller reported that he arrived at work and discovered that the front glass door of his business was shattered. The reporting party subsequently went to the rear of the business and armed himself with a knife. After calling out to the suspect inside, the reporting party heard rustling from inside. The reporting party went back to the
front and saw the suspect attempting to flee on foot northbound through the industrial complex. The reporting party confronted the suspect and held him at knifepoint until police arrived.
The suspect was identified as Steven Wells-Wentz of Carlsbad. After being arrested, Wells-Wentz was found to be in possession of a large pepper spray canister and multiple burglary tools. Wells-Wentz was booked at the Vista Detention Center for Burglary, Possession of Burglary Tools, Possession of Illegal Tear Gas, Felon in Possession of Tear Gas and Felony Vandalism.

Puppy Mills Money
Pet stores have come under scrutiny for their business practice of acquiring unhealthy puppies from bulk breeders. These puppies look cute in the window at the pet store. Buyers often finance their purchase through a lender at high interest rates. Unfortunately, a high percentage of these buyers are not prepared for the veterinarian bills for their sick puppy.

What To Do If You Find Baby Animals In the midst of baby season, the San Diego Humane Society is educating people on what to do if you find a litter of helpless kittens, or even just one orphaned kitten, a baby bird fallen from its nest, or wildlife lost. Some of the answers may be a little different than your first instincts. Watch to assess whether or not the kittens are injured or exposed to harsh elements like sunlight or rain. If not, they are fine if left alone for a few hours to see if mom comes back. Unless they're in immediate danger, it's best to watch to see if mom comes back before taking action. Intervene if she hasn't returned in approximately five or six hours. You don't want mommy to return and find her kittens gone. Kittens and other baby animals have the best chance of survival if they are kept with their mother until weaned. Also, there are things you can do to make life easier for her like provide food and water so she doesn't have to leave her babies. Don't leave food out for too long though because other predators
This matters to you. As an Escondido resident, you pay taxes that eventually cover the cost of animal control expenses. When pet owners abandon pets, the San Diego Humane Society takes them in. They provide evaluations, vaccines, medical care and boarding for abandoned pets. Eventually the pets are adopted to families who demonstrate responsible pet ownership skills. The cost of this transition, $955,245.00 in Fiscal Year 15-16, was eventually billed to might find it, so place it a safe distance away from the babies. If mom did not return there are several things you can do: Become a foster parent. The Humane Society provides training, supplies and medical support necessary to care for the orphaned kittens until old enough to be adopted into a permanent home. Make an appointment at your local shelter to relinquish the litter of kittens. The Society has a kitten nursery and team of foster volunteers specially trained to care for orphaned kittens. The Humane Society relies on the community to be advocates for wildlife too. They take in an average of 650 baby wildlife each day, which all need immediate medical intervention and care. Sometimes that baby bird on the ground is simply learning how to fly, so unless an animal is injured or orphaned, wildlife should be left alone. Knowing what to look for is the best thing we can do to protect San Diego County's diverse wildlife population. For guidelines on what to do if you find baby wildlife, visit Project Wildlife’s resource page here <http://www.projectwildlife.org/wildlife.php#coexist>.
Escondido taxpayers. Other cities pay as well.
Predatory lending for purchase of sick puppies that get abandoned then housed by the Humane Society at taxpayer expense has led many cities to ban puppy sales at pet stores. Oceanside, San Marcos and Carlsbad have all passed restrictions that will lead to reduced costs and reduced animal suffering. Escondido should consider the moral and fiscal implications of doing nothing. For details on caring for an orphaned kitten, see San Diego Humane Society’s Orphaned Kitten Care Guidelines here <http://www.sdhumane.org/what-wedo/resources/found-a-kitten/>. San Diego Humane Society has campuses located in Escondido, Oceanside, and San Diego, and adoption centers inside Petco stores throughout S.D. county. Visit www.sdhumane.org for more information.

Parents look for enriching experiences for their children every summer. This is why New Song Community Church works so hard to make our annual Kids Camp (8:30a to 12:15p, July 11-15 and Saturday night, July 16) the best week of the year for every family involved. Kids Camp revolves around groups of kids, huddled with an enthusiastic counselor, learning sports, games and crafts, enjoying great music, and delving into the Bible.
Four hundred elementary and pre-school aged children experienced Kids
We issue an invitation to every school-aged child in Oceanside, Fallbrook and Carlsbad to participate. Since our goal is to extend God’s love, we try hard to target families who are not already attending a church somewhere else. If that’s you, I hope you’ll consider this your warm invitation to join us for a great week. This year’s Camp includes options for flag football, soccer, ballet, broom hockey, cooking, g ymnastics, dance, mad science, wrestling, and whiffle ball. I encourage you to register today at http://newsongchurch.com/kidscamp/ to receive our Early Bird registration price. Camp will be held at our Central Campus location, at 3985 Mission Avenue, in Oceanside.

Paul & Nome Van Middlesworth, The Computer Factory
Yep, we’re #1. The Computer Factory San Marcos is the best “independent” computer store in San Diego County.
I’ll admit that we may have been guilty of playing a bit fast and loose with the facts in the past. In 1995 when we opened The Computer Factory we did boast that our 3000 square foot operation made us the “biggest independent computer store west of the Mississippi.” Nobody ever said we weren’t so we just keep on saying it. Then about ten years ago we started bragging that “we build more PCs than HP, Dell and Apple combined.” We weren’t totally certain that our claim to being the “biggest store west of the Mississippi” was really true but we were darn

Two informally dressed ladies happened to start up a conversation during an endless wait in the LAX airport. The first lady was an arrogant California woman married to a wealthy man. The second was a wellmannered elderly woman from southwest Minnesota. When the conversation centered on whether they had any children, the California woman started by saying, "When my first child was born, my husband built a beautiful mansion for me ." The lady from Minnesota commented, "Well, bless your heart."
The first woman continued, "When my second child was born, my husband bought me a beautiful Mercedes-Benz” Again, the lady from Minnesota commented, "Well, bless your heart." The first woman continued boasting, "Then, when my third child was born, my husband bought me this exquisite diamond bracel.”
Yet again, the Minnesota lady commented, "Well, bless your heart."
The first woman then asked her companion, "What did your husband buy for
sure that we do build more PCs than Dell, HP and Apple. Those companies gave up designing and building PCs years ago. Today they just buy their PCs from offshore manufacturers like Foxconn in China and have their brand name plastered on at the end of the assembly line. We still build ours from scratch right here in San Marcos. This time however it’s not just us saying so. We’re #1 and we can prove it. In the Union Tribune “San Diego’s Best” 2015 poll we beat out over 200 other “independent” computer stores to finish at the top of the heap. In the “Computer Store” category we actually finished fourth but the three ahead of us (Fry’s, Apple and Best Buy) were not “independents,” they are multi-location chain stores. This year we’re going to go after them too. Last year we did nothing to promote our store and our victory came as a complete surprise. This year we’re going after those ‘big box” chain stores too, but we’ll need your help.
The way to vote for us is fairly simple and you can do it from your PC or smart phone. The link is sdbestpoll.com. Then click on “vote.” From the “select a category” menu click “Shopping and services.” Then scroll down until you see “Computer stores.” Click on you when you had your first child?"
"My husband sent me to charm school," declared the Minnesota lady.
"Charm school?" the first woman cried, "Oh, my God! What on earth for?"
The Minnesota lady responded, "Well for example, instead of saying, who gives a crap?" I learned to say, "Well, bless your heart!"

has come to a screeching halt. Even the highest speed Internet can easily be handled by any ten year old PC. The availability of Internet streaming and on-line storage and back-up has limited the need for giant hard drives and four or eight GB of RAM is plenty for the vast majority of users. The under $500 PCs featured in the “Big Box stores” (Fry’s, Best Buy, Staples etc) are actually far slower today than PCs available in 2010. So buying a good quality “refurbished” PC is often better than buying a brand new Dell or HP. That will be our topic for next week.

(LAK) Chapter of Beta Sigma Phi supported a worthy cause with a monetary donation. The purpose of Next Step Service Dogs is to train service dogs to eliminate despair, reduce anxiety, and create a new sense of purpose in helping our military heroes and first responders with PTSD return to a normal life. Many Iraq and Afghanistan veterans return with injuries that aren’t obvious at first sight. It is estimated that 600,000 are dealing with the effects of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) or Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). With a veteran suicide averaging 22 every day, the work to support our nation’s veterans has just begun once they return home. Next Step Service Dogs help veterans take the ‘next step’ to recovery and a better life by training them a “Battle Buddy.” Next Step Service Dogs are trained to help their human companions; if they are fearful in a crowd, the dogs provide a buffer; if they awaken at night in terror, the dogs calm them by licking their face; if they panic at entering their home, the dogs can scout the area and turn on lights; if they lost something important, the dogs can help them find it; if they are struggling with family/friends, the dogs can help provide the connection. Donations help to train dogs to help our veterans. Visit www.nextstepservicedogs.org.

CITY OF SAN MARCOS AMENDMENT TO THE CITY OF SAN MARCOS TRANSNET LOCAL STREET IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM OF PROJECTS
NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that on June 14, 2016 a public hearing will be held with respect to the City of San Marcos approval of carrying over projects from the 2014 Regional Transportation Improvement Program (RTIP) to the 2016 RTIP. San Diego Association of Governments (SANDAG), as the Metropolitan Planning Organization and the Regional Transportation Planning Agency, is required by state and federal laws to develop and adopt a Regional Transportation Improvement Program (RTIP). The RTIP is a multi-billion dollar, multi-year program of proposed projects for major transportation projects in the San Diego Region. Transportation projects funded with federal, state, and TransNet, the San Diego transportation sales tax program, must be included in an approved RTIP. The RTIP covers five fiscal years and incrementally implements San Diego Forward: The Regional Plan, the long-range transportation plan for the San Diego region. The current Regional Plan was approved by the SANDAG Board of Directors at its meeting on October 9, 2015. On September 23, 2016, the SANDAG Board of Directors will be asked to adopt the final 2016 RTIP. The City of San Marcos recommends programming the 2014 RTIP projects that are necessary to be carried over into the 2016 RTIP as they are either regionally significant, capacity increasing projects or are projects that are being recommended for TransNet revenues. All projects programmed with TransNet funds meet all the requirements of the TransNet Extension Ordinance and accommodate travel for pedestrians and bicyclists. A complete list of the amendment is available for public review at Development Services Front Desk at City Hall, 1 Civic Center Drive, San Marcos, CA. Interested persons wishing to express their views will also be given an opportunity to do so at the public hearing, commencing at 6:00 p.m., or as soon thereafter as the matter can be heard, and will be held at 1 Civic Center Drive in the Council Chambers, San Marcos, California. Written commencements prior to the time of the hearing can be submitted to City of San Marcos, 1 Civic Center Drive, San Marcos, CA 92069, Attention: Darren Chamow, Management Analyst. s/s Michael Edwards, Public Works Director Phil Scollick, City Clerk, City of San Marcos Dp June 02, 2016 and June 09, 2016

AC Service & Repair
Pre-season Special $199 Complete, Full Service AC Package (A $300 Value! Truck or Car! RV’s slightly higher.)
We will begin by diagnosing the problem. You tell us what's wrong, and we will not only confirm it, but also diagnose where the issue is stemming from.
In most cases, air conditioning problems stem back to low levels of refrigerant. Unfortunately, replacing the refrigerant will not be enough to fix the problem. If your refrigerant levels are low, we will need to determine why.
If it is because of a leak, we will need to determine where the leak is coming from before we can repair it. If there is no problem with your refrigerant levels, then we will move on to rule out other issues that could be causing your air conditioner to malfunction.
For the hot days that are sure to come... now's the time to get the jump on the air conditioning season and be ready for when the temps climb and climb and climb... you'll be enjoying air conditioned comfort.
