By Thomas Calabrese
Sally Connors had been working at the Carlsbad Airport for three years and even though she was only fourteen years old, she knew more about flying than pilots much older than herself. She had been taking flight training lessons since she was thirteen and planned on flying solo when she turned sixteen and getting her pilotâ€™s license when she became eligible on her seventeenth birthday. Sally first saw an airplane up close on her fifth birthday at the San Diego Airport and has been consumed by anything aeronautical ever since. She read everything she could find about The Paper - 760.747.7119
female pilots which included; Amelia Earhart, Harriet Quimbey, Pancho Barnes, Bessie Coleman, Amy Johnson, Jacqueline Cochran and Willa Brown among others.
Her job chores at the small North County airport included walking the runway every morning at sunrise to make sure that it was completely clear of debris, running errands for pilots, washing down aircraft and various janitorial services. Sally would do any task without complaint or hesitation as long as she was able to be around airplanes. If she was lucky, one of the local pilots would take her up for a ride and if Sally was
really lucky, the pilot would give her temporary control of the aircraft.
It was May 16, 1980, and the airport was preparing for the Memorial Day air show. The main attraction was going to be James Stewart, actor, pilot and World War II hero. He was going to fly his vintage P-51 Mustang fighter down from Los Angeles and perform at the show. Sally could hardly contain her excitement as she familiarized herself with the P-51 and James Stewartâ€™s flying history. She even compiled a list of questions to ask the iconic actor and familiarized herself with the development of the leg-

endary airplane. To most people it was just boring details, but not to Sally who found it captivating; The North American Aviation P-51 Mustang was an American longrange, single-seat fighter and fighterbomber used during World War II and the Korean War, among other conflicts. The Mustang was designed in 1940 by North American Aviation. The Mustang was originally designed to use the Allison V-1710 engine, which, in its earlier variants, had limited high-altitude performance. It was first flown operationally by the RAF as a tactical-reconnaissance aircraft and fighter-bomber. The replacement of the Allison with

a Rolls-Royce Merlin resulted in the P-51B/C model and transformed the Mustang’s performance at altitudes above 15,000 feet, allowing the aircraft to compete with the Luftwaffe’s fighters. The definitive version, the P-51D, was powered by the Packard V-1650-7, a license-built version of the Rolls-Royce Merlin 66 two-stage two-speed supercharged engine and was armed with six .50 caliber M2/AN Browning machine guns. James Stewart’s war time P-51 Mustang was modified to civilian use by adding a taller tailfin, wingtip tanks and a tight second seat that was placed in the space formerly occupied by the military radio and fuselage fuel tank. The real coincidence of the situation was that he named his plane, ‘Mustang Sally’ not after Sally Connors, but after his granddaughter, Sally, the second child of his daughter Kelly.
Memorial Day could not come fast enough for the precocious teenager and in the week prior to the holiday, Sally was at the small airport by the crack of dawn to do her assigned chores before heading off to school. When class was out, she rushed back to the airport, worked for two more hours then biked home before nightfall. Her father, Bill was a former Army Ranger and World War II veteran and encouraged his only child to pursue her dreams, and even though he was concerned for her safety, he knew that trying to restraint her would be a serious error in parenting. His wife Margaret wanted a more

A woman went to a pet shop & immediately spotted a large, beautiful parrot. There was a sign on the cage that said $50.00. 'Why so little,' she asked the pet store owner. The owner looked at her and said, 'Look, I should tell you first that this bird used to live in a house of Prostitution and sometimes it says some pretty vulgar stuff.'
The woman thought about this, but decided she had to have the bird any way. She took it home and hung the bird's cage up in her living room and waited for it to say something. The bird looked around the room, then at her, and said, 'New house, new madam.'
The woman was a bit shocked at the implication, but then thought 'that's really not so bad.' When her 2 teenage daughters
traditional life for her free spirited daughter, “She is so focused on flying that I’m worried she is missing out on other activities,” Margaret said.
“She gets good grades, is involved in sports, doesn’t do drugs or cause trouble,” Bill said, “Most parents would be thanking their lucky stars for a daughter like ours. Maybe we should support what she is, instead of wishing that she was somebody else.” “When you put it that way,” Margaret smiled.
It was May24th when one of Sally’s friends, Shannon approached her as she was leaving school, “What are you doing for Memorial Day weekend…a bunch of us are going to the beach.” “I’ll be working at the air show,” Sally responded.
“You’re always at the airport!” Shannon snapped back. “James Stewart is coming in,” Sally responded. “Who’s that?”
“Seriously, Shannon, you don’t know who James Stewart is?” Sally responded in amazement, “He’s coming with his Mustang.”
‘Big deal, my brother has a Camaro.” “P-51 Mustang…never mind,” Sally shook her head and walked off. Sally asked Andy Howard, the airreturned from school the bird saw and said, 'New house, new madam, new girls.' The girls and the woman were a bit offended, but then began to laugh about the situation, considering how and where the parrot had been raised. Moments later, the woman's husband came home from work. The bird looked at him and said, 'Hi Keith.' •••• SURGEONS BRAGGING...

port manager every day if James Stewart was still coming to the air show, “How many times are you going to ask me that question?” “I just want to be sure,” Sally flashed an impish grin. “You’ll be the first one I tell if anything changes,” Andy promised.
It was Sunday, twenty four hours and counting to the Memorial Day show and Sally was up before dawn. Her father was already in the kitchen when she walked down the stairs. “Do I need to ask where you are going today?” Andy asked.
“You don’t need to, but I’m happy to tell you anyway,” Sally smiled.
“I hope you’re not expecting too much from James Stewart,” Andy cautioned his daughter. “What do you mean?”
“He’s a famous actor and a lot of people are going to want to talk to him. His time is limited and he’ll be in his plane, then he’ll probably be gone,” Andy explained, “What I’m trying to say is that he might not have as much time to spend with you as you would like.” “I considered that possibility already, so I plan to be at the airport when Mr. Stewart arrives and I’m staying there until he leaves. If I see my opportunity then I’ll take it, and if I don’t then I also realize that life is full of disappointments, this will just be one of them. That doesn’t mean I shouldn’t try, does it?” everyone drove the old 2 lane roads,

“How old did you say you were?” Andy smiled and was obviously impressed by his daughter’s grasp of the situation.
“Remember one thing, I’ll never be old enough to stop having breakfast with the best dad in the world,” Sally leaned over and kissed her father on the cheek. It was almost 1400 hours on the Sunday before Memorial Day when one of the airport workers turned to Sally, “Everything is done, why don’t you go home.” Before Sally could answer, she heard something in the distance and listened more closely,” Hear that?” “Hear what?” The airport worker responded.
Sally took off in a full sprint for the airport tower and ran up the stairs, found a pair of binoculars and looked to the west. Suddenly there was a radio transmission, “Carlsbad, this Mustang HO624J requesting permission to land.”
The tower operator was not there, since no incoming aircraft was scheduled for take-off or landing. It only took Sally a second to realize what needed to be done, so she picked up the radio, “Mustang, this is Carlsbad, you are clear for landing, approach from the east, crosswinds six to seven knots, visibility clear.” “Affirmative,” came the distinctive

voice of the pilot. As Sally rushed out to meet the aircraft, she bumped into Ben Littlefield, the tower operator and almost knocked him over, “What’s going on?” “We have a plane landing,” Sally replied as she kept running. “Nobody told me.”
“It is James Stewart!”
Sally knew the sound of every aircraft that flew regularly into Carlsbad Airport, but nothing sounded like the high pitched whine that grew ever louder until the afternoon sun reflected off the silver fuselage of the P-51 Mustang that quickly came into view. It was like a sliver of light as it sliced through the skies and then landed so softly that it barely seemed to touch the pavement before it taxied to the hangar area. Sally guided the Mustang to an area that had been reserved especially for it. It dwarfed the Pipers and Cessnas that were parked nearby.
James Stewart opened the cockpit and stepped out, he was an older man, his hair was gray and tousled and had the style of several generations earlier. His flight jacket was faded brown, creased and worn and the American flag was prominently sewn to the right shoulder. There were also several other squadron emblems on it as well.
As soon as James Stewart’s feet touched the tarmac, Sally said with

utmost enthusiasm, “Welcome to Carlsbad, Mr. Stewart, my name is Sally Connors and I’m here to help you in any way that you need.” “Did you say that your name is Sally?” James Stewart asked, “I like that name,” and gestured to writing on the plane, Mustang Sally, “my granddaughter is named Sally.” “We weren’t expecting you until tomorrow, sir,” Sally said.
“Call me Jimmy, I was planning on leaving in the morning, but it was supposed to be overcast with light drizzle until early afternoon, so I thought to myself, what would I’d rather do; take a nice ride along the coast in the sun today or fly in the ‘May Gray’ tomorrow.”

James Stewart hated to tell the young girl no, “Do your parents allow you to invite strange men to your home?” “You’re not a strange man, you are James Stewart!” Sally was exuberant. “Call your parents and see what they say.”
Bill Connors was in his car and on his way to the Carlsbad airport in less than two minutes, once he got his daughter’s phone call.
“I’ve booked a room at the Carlsbad Inn so I’ll need a cab to take me there,” James Stewart said.
Bill Connors and James Stewart shared stories about their military service and like most men of the ‘Greatest Generation’ they only spoke in generalities, while choosing to ignore the horrors of war that they experienced. Sally was riveted by their conversation and when her father was done speaking; she began asking James Stewart technical questions about the many aircrafts that he had flown in his life.
“Thank you, Sally, but I’ve already made my reservation,” James Stewart replied.
“I’m sorry Mr. Stewart, I didn’t mean to ramble on,” Sally apologized.
“I’m glad you chose today,” Sally smiled.
All of a sudden, a thought flashed through Sally’s mind, “Why don’t you stay at my home?”
“My dad was in the 82nd Airborne, the ‘All American Division’ and served in World War II, the same time as you. My mom and dad are big fans of yours, me too of course. Please Mr. Stewart, we’ve got a great guest room and it’s a lot better than a hotel. My mom is a really good cook and she’ll make you anything you want.”
Three hours later, Margaret Connors intervened, “Mr. Stewart has a busy day ahead of him tomorrow, why don’t you let him get some sleep.”
“It has been my pleasure to talk to a young person that is so passionate about flying.”
On Memorial Day, the gray clouds were heavy and dark and there was a collective sense of disappointment from the people at the airport that they would not burn off in time for the air show. James Stewart methodi-

cally went through his pre-flight check as Sally watched every one of his movements and committed them to memory. He handed Sally a fire extinguisher with specific and simple instructions, “If you see a fire, put it out.”
“Affirmative,” Sally responded, “You can count on me.”
James Stewart climbed into the cockpit and gave the thumbs up. The air around the exhaust manifolds shimmered like a mirror from fuel fumes as the huge prop started to rotate. One manifold, then another barked, several people backed up, but Sally stood her ground mesmerized by the sound. The Packard-built Merlin engine came to life with a thunderous roar and blue flames knifed from the manifolds with an arrogant impatient snarl. It was as if the heavens were listening, for as soon as the P-51 Mustang began to taxi, the skies began to clear. By the time James Stewart reached the end of the runway, the skies directly above the airport were bright blue and the sun focused its attention on the Mustang. Like a banshee freed from a hellish prison, the plane shot upward, swallowing altitude like a voracious predator.
James Stewart made several passes over the field, the last one in the inverted position and only fifty feet above the ground tearing the air to shreds at 500 mph, the wingtips of the P-51 spilling contrails of condensed air. It glistened, screamed and the buildings shook. The anticipation

ARREST MADE IN FATAL TRAFFIC COLLISION CASE
On May 5, 2020, Escondido Police and Fire responded to a vehicle versus pedestrian collision on San Pasqual Valley Road at Oak Hill Dr. Tragically, four pedestrians were struck and killed in the collision.
While Intoxicated (4 separate counts) and will be booked into the Vista Detention Facility after processing. This case has been a devastating event for our community. Investigators spent many hours putting together this case and we want the public to understand the following:
• All murder cases take time, energy, and a team of investigators to gather and process the evidence. • Moreover, the nature of vehiclerelated death investigations require significant follow-up investigation including vehicle computer analysis, cell phone analysis, roadway computations, and lab tests. • When arrests are made too quickly and without enough investigation, the DA’s office may not be able to prosecute the case because the case cannot be proven beyond a reasonable doubt. Single engine plane crashes, pilot dies, passenger badly injured
On June 4, 2020, Escondido Police obtained an arrest warrant for Ashley Rene Williams (28) from Escondido, the driver of the vehicle that struck the pedestrians. Police executed a search warrant on Williams’ home where she was taken into custody. She was arrested for Murder (4 separate counts) and Gross Vehicular Manslaughter
Man About Town
Reasons I love Escondido:
Chief of Police Ed Varso - a top communicator. Is there any Chief of Police anywhere in America that handled the protests as well as Chief Varso? I don’t think so. He was magnificent and I think Escondido is lucky to have him. He met with leaders of the protest, he smoothed uneven tempers, calmed crowds, and arranged for orderly demonstrations and protests, all the while having his entire police force at the ready to prevent any outside troublemakers to gain any type of foothold. Result: A peaceful series of protests.

I absolutely love this man! I know of many things Mr. DeJong has done to help individuals. I don’t mention them by name because Arie doesn’t want publicity. He just does the right thing when folks or the community needs help.
Proud to call him my friend. •••• Mayor Paul McNamara, a Marine through and through. A distinguished military career and a man who has guided the city of Escondido on a steady course. We also extend a belated Happy Birthday wish to Mayor McNamara! •••• Pastor (retired) Dick Huls: This past Saturday Pastor Huls and I got together for coffee for the first time in about three months. It was so good to see him and chat and chat and chat! I absolutely love the man and his terrific family. He and his wife, Marcia, are very special people and I’m so glad they are part of my life.
Shortly before the crash, neighbors in the area heard the engine throttle down and shortly after the plane plunged into the front yard of a residence in the area, without damaging the house or hitting anyone on the ground. Before first responders arrived, as many as 30 neighbors converged on the accident site to do what they could to put out the fire that had started on the plane. Neighbors pulled the 12-year-old child from the plane, and moved her to safety as someone drove a tractor over and covered the wreckage with dirt to try and extinguish the fire. The 12-year-old suffered some burns and was flown to UCSD Medical Center to have her airway evaluated for burns from the superheated gases. “She was first sent to the burn unit, and then to Rady’s Children’s Hospital when they found she didn’t have respiratory burns,” said Valley Center Fire Chief Joe Napier. “At Rady she’s getting the best possible care for the best possible outcome.” Rosie’s Cafe, Escondido, Closes

Preparing for Future Emergencies
In March the Legislature recessed due to the COVID-19 emergency. This recess was unprecedented in our history and underscored a critical problem. While California lawmakers continued to work from their districts, they cannot vote on legislation when they are unable to meet in Sacramento.
When it comes to technology, our Legislature is stuck in the past. The recent recess and current social unrest have shown that it can be unsafe for Members, their staff and the public to attend proceedings in the Capitol. We lack clear authority to hold remote hearings during emergency shutdowns. This leaves 40 million Californians without representation when they need it the most.
Other states, along with municipalities and government agencies across the state adopted emergency provisions allowing temporary, remote proceedings. Surely, California can take similar steps to ensure continuity of government. I have joined Assemblymembers Mullin, Cooley and Ting to author Assembly Constitutional Amendment 25 (ACA 25), allowing legislators to remotely attend and vote in legislative
We are all about Windows PCs (personal computers) and the things they are used for. This includes desktop, tower, notebook and AIO (All-InOne) PCs and the applications and peripheral they use. We don’t do carburetors, hand grenades or Apple (Mac) PCs. Mac users sometimes indignantly ask why we “discriminate” against Apple PC products. It isn’t because we don’t like Appleheads, (they are kind of fun to watch). The real reason is that servicing Apple PCs (not iPhones) requires an entirely different knowledge set and because Apple represents a fairly small portion of the PC market (about 8%), we leave that part of the PC business to the Apple specialists. If you need one we will be happy to tell you where to go. Most of our product sales efforts are in support of mainstream business and home PC users but we do design and build PCs to meet special applications like gaming, solids modeling, audio/video editing and day trading. The major portion of our PC sales consists of “enterprise refurbs.” These range from the basic workstations ($200-$300) for routine home, school and office applications and Internet access through systems with high speed CPUs, SSDs, video cards and tons of RAM. An important part of our service resides in helping our clients arrive at the best and most cost effective
proceedings during a declared state of emergency. Recent amendments to ACA 25 protect public access by requiring hearings to be open and public. Remote hearings must receive twothirds approval from Members, and will be allowed only during the emergency when Members are unavailable or cannot safely attend. Any deviations from normal procedures will be subject to judicial review with the burden of proof on the Legislature to prove the deviations are necessary.
The people of California must have representation at all times. With its two-year terms, The Assembly is the house that’s most accountable to the people. Its responsibilities, including oversight and checks/balances over the Executive Branch are critical, especially during a crisis. ACA 25 has wide bi-partisan support and requires a two-thirds vote to pass. Finally, it must be approved by the voters before becoming law. Assembly Republican Leader Marie Waldron, R-Escondido, represents the 75th Assembly District in the California Legislature, which includes the communities of Bonsall, Escondido, Fallbrook, Hidden Meadows, Pala, Palomar Mountain, Pauma Valley, Rainbow, San Marcos, Temecula, Valley Center and Vista.
solutions for their particular requirements. Our PC services include upgrading hardware and OS (operating systems,) trouble-shooting and repair of hardware and software problems and home and office onsite service for setting up systems, peripherals and networks. The Covid19 “work from home” demand for many school and office tasks has slowed the upgrade from Win7 to Win10. Many offices have been closed and Win7 users at home have been reluctant to make any changes. Internet and commercial institutions have held off on plans to deny access to Win7 users until the Covid19 crises passes and Microsoft continues to allow Win7 and 8 license holders to avoid paying a

If you have an old Win7 PC that you’re not using, get it upgraded anyway or bring it in for a trade-in. Right now and going forward, nearly any PC manufactured with Win7 can be upgraded to Win10 for a bit over $100. As a Win10 upgrade it will be just as fast and capable as a brand new Win10 PC for common applications and the Internet. But if you wait until Microsoft pulls the plug on the “free” Win10 upgrade, your old PC will be worthless.

Opening Up Businesses
Throughout our battle against COVID19, my goal has always been to open more businesses and continue our momentum while keeping people safe, especially protecting those that are vulnerable. Over the last two weeks, we’ve seen our restaurants, retail businesses, hair salons and barbershops open safely, without any major spikes in Corona Virus cases or capacity issues in hospitals. While our testing has increased, the percentages of positive tests have gone down and continues to trend down.
As I said last week, we MUST protect our most vulnerable. We’ve learned the vast majority of COVID-19 deaths are people with underlying circumstances. We’ve learned the median age of those who have passed away from Corona Virus is 78. We’ve learned that 47% of San Diego county’s deaths are people in congregate care facilities. We have identified the highest risk groups in our population and we need to protect them as we open up the economy. At our last Board of Supervisors meeting, I urged my colleagues to open more businesses back up, while protecting our most vulnerable. I’ve always looked at the Board of Supervisors as the balancing force between safety and the economy. Here was my motion:
I moved that we receive a presentation at our next board meeting focused on
our most vulnerable populations and request staff present a plan for how San Diego County will protect the most vulnerable populations as we move forward with this virus.
I moved that the Board take a position (it’s not an action because the Board does not have the authority to make the decision) to do the following under established social distancing and safety protocols:
1. Request the County open beaches immediately for all activities including parking lots. 2. Send a letter to the Governor under the Chair’s signature stating we would like the following businesses open immediately: • Gyms • Hotels • Wineries/Breweries • Churches • Theme Parks • Youth Sports • Charter/Fishing Boats • Pools • Museums • The remaining businesses in the pilot
San Diegans have proven they’re willing to abide by the safety protocols and get back to work, let’s give the power back to the people and get San Diego back to work.

Have you ever been in a house and seen a beautifully carved cuckoo clock, and then all of a sudden heard it chiming? Well, it’s a pretty common situation nowadays. But did you ever wonder when and how those clocks first started?
It is generally regarded that cuckoo clocks as we know them today started in the Black Forest Region in Germany. More specifically, they were created around 1630 in the village of Triberg. The most-popular type of cuckoo clock was first designed in 1738 by Franz Ketterer. He was inspired by the local church organs, and his new system included small bellows and whistles that imitated a cuckoo’s call. His first model was an elaborately decorated painted wooden clock. The cuckoo was located behind a small door.
The cuckoo clock gained incredible popularity within Germany, enough for many people in the Black Forest to try their hand at clock making. Clock-peddlers began traveling to different areas of Germany, as well as to France and elsewhere to sell their clocks. The cuckoo’s call became well-known throughout Europe, and actually was made the
same way it is today, nearly 300 years later. Similar to churchorgans, the sound was made by two bellows sending air through pipes. The fame of the Black Forest for making cuckoo clocks has spread worldwide. In fact, the most valuable Black Forest clock is the “world-time-clock”, which was made in 1787, and is located today in the German clock museum in Furtwangen.
Typically, the casing of a cuckoo clock is traditional and is usually in the shape of a rustic birdhouse or a chalet. Many of the clocks are decorated with animals, plants, leaves, and depict hunting scenes. Some are ornamented with typical Black Forest scenes, such as dancing couples in traditional dress moving to music, as well as a rotating mill wheel, or even a farmer chopping wood. A cuckoo bird often appears through a small trap door when the clock is striking, and then goes behind the door after the striking stops. Many of the clocks are run by weights, often in the shape of pinecones, underneath the clock. They needed to be pulled up once a day, or a week, or longer, depending on the model. Recently, battery powered cuckoo clocks have been developed, but do not have the same
bellows and striking that have been associated with the clocks for 300 years.
The cuckoo clock has survived to this day. It is still greatly in demand, and is a hand-carved work of art that can be treasured for decades.
Collectors still cherish cuckoo clocks as well. Clocks are often auctioned, and prices can really run the gamut. For example, a 19th century Black Forest wall clock with a cuckoo door went for $750, while another carved wood cuckoo mantle clock from the early 20th century sold for $2500 at auction. Often, the taller the clock the pricier they are. For example, a large wall 40 inch fully-carved clock depicting a deer family went for $3500. Sometimes clocks are bought for the beauty and ornateness of the clock itself, rather than for the clock’s mechanism. As an example, in 2006 an elaborately carved antique walnut cuckoo clock with carving of birds and deer was auctioned. However, some pieces were missing, and the clock that was offered did not have any weights. Nonetheless, the clock was auctioned for $5000. Cuckoo clocks are indeed cherished by many, due in fact for a few reasons. They not only are nostalgic,
but also the product is very wellmade. They remind people of how ornate and exquisite many items of the past were. Unfortunately many items are not built with the same craftsmanship today. That is why cuckoo clocks will continue to be a favorite around the world of collectors and non-collectors alike. They combine the best of the past with the necessities of today.

of waiting for James Stewart to arrive paled in comparison to the reality of these glorious moments. Sally’s emotions were coursing through every fiber of her being and she didn’t know whether to laugh, cry or scream in jubilation. Over the next three years, James Stewart kept in touch with Sally. His P-51 Mustang was hangered at the Santa Monica airport and whenever he was taking it up, he called to see if Sally wanted to take a ride. Andy would drive his daughter up Interstate Five and wait until they were finished then returned to Carlsbad. At the age of sixteen, the actor allowed Sally to fly solo.
After graduation from high school, Retired Air Force General James Stewart and Congressman Ron Packard recommended Sally Connors for admittance to the Air Force Academy. In her first military deployment with the 76th Tactical Fighter Squadron Sally flew 611 sorties in her A-10 Thunderbolt during the Desert Storm campaign which lasted August 1990 to February 1991. She was later assigned to an F-16 fighter jet squadron in 1994 and was stationed at Aviano Air base in Italy. While there, she received the bad news that James Stewart passed away on July 2, 1997. She was given emergency leave to attend the funeral and when she returned to California, she was informed that his P-51 Mustang had been left to her. As the first actor in Hollywood to serve in World War II was being laid to rest, Sally flew 10,000 feet above the Forest Lawn Cemetery in Glendale, California, and wrote Jimmy across the clear blue sky. Later in her career, Sally flew with the Air Force Thunderbirds air demonstration squadron and later was accepted into the program to fly the SR-71 Blackbird stealth fighter. This plane can attain speeds over Mach 3 (2300 mph) and reach altitudes of 80,000 feet. There were times when Sally was flying on the outer reaches of the wild blue yonder that she could swear that she saw the face and heard the voice of James Stewart echoing down from the heavens, voicing his approval.
Sally remained on active duty for twenty five years and reached the rank of Colonel before transferring from active duty to a reserve unit at Edwards Air Force Base. She was promoted to Brigadier General, the same rank that her mentor and role model, James Stewart held at the time of his retirement from the Air Force. Sally became a test pilot for several aircraft manufacturers, and as a hobby began entering Red Bull air races. She won enough times to become the number one pilot on the tour. Throughout her entire career, Sally used ‘Mustang’ as her call sign. Most people thought she came up with it because of her name, she just let them go on thinking that was the answer.
It was May 28, 2018,and Sally was asked to perform at the Memorial Day air show at the Carlsbad airport, something she had done on numerous occasions whenever her military commitment did not prevent her attendance. Her P-51 Mustang was already hangered there and she was living in Bressi Ranch, a nearby
neighborhood because she loved living close to the airport where everything started for her.
Historically Speaking by Tom Morrow
She made a few modifications to the P-51 Mustang for racing, but the most noticeable one was the writing on both sides of the tail fin, Jimmy. When asked about it, Sally responded simply, “Whenever I fly, I know that Jimmy is right there with me.” Memorial Day weekend was her favorite holiday and it held special significance to General Sally Connors for several reasons; it gave her the privilege to honor the men and women and their dedication, sacrifice and devotion to duty in service of our country. These patriotic Americans are always willing to go into harm’s way on hostile lands or into dangerous skies, and make the ultimate sacrifice if need be so that others can enjoy the precious gifts of liberty and freedom. It was also when she met James Stewart for the first time, but there was also something unexplainable, spiritual and surreal that happened to her on this weekend.
Editor’s Note: My father, Howard K. Davis, worked at the Martin Bomber Plant (as it was known then) and worked on the Enola Gay.
The Flight More Historic Than Lindbergh’s
An argument could be made that, other than Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower and other military leaders, U.S. Army Air Corps’ Col. Paul Warfield Tibbets Jr., born Feb. 23, 1915, had more responsibility and pressure put upon him during World War II than any other single man. He commanded, trained an entire bomb group and personally piloted the plane that dropped the first atomic bomb on Hiroshima, Japan.
Sally taxied to the end of the runway and saw the vague image of James Stewart in the glass canopy and heard his distinctive voice; “Mustang Sally, you better speed your Mustang up.”
By comparison, the flight Colonel Tibbets made Aug. 6, 1945, historically speaking, surpassed the 1927 flight across the Atlantic by Charles Lindbergh.
Tom is a Marine, having served in Vietnam with the 3rd Battalion 26th Marines; he is a Purple Heart Recipient. He has also served in the Marine Corps Reserves, The Navy Seabees and Army Reserves. He has a BA degree fro UC Berkeley and has a colorful career including deputy sheriff, actor, stuntman, screenwriter and base housing inspector, Camp Pendleton Marine Corps Base.

Loaded with a 10,000-pound uranium bomb, dubbed “Little Boy,” the Enola Gay lifted off Tinian for Hiroshima, Japan at 0245 (a.m.) on Aug. 6, 1945, with Tibbets at the controls. Tinian, located just north of Guam, is some 1,600 miles from Japan, taking six hours to reach Hiroshima. "Little Boy," was dropped over Hiroshima at 08:15 local time. After a second bomb (plutonium), called “Fat Man,” was dropped on Nagasaki two days later, Japan surrendered, thus ending World War II.

“Roger that,” Sally pushed the throttle lever down and raced to the heavens to play among the angels.
About the Author: Thomas Calabrese is the newest writer to join The Paper.
Tibbets formally named his B-29 “Enola Gay” after his mother. The name had been personally selected by him while it was still on the assembly line at the Martin plant in Bellevue, Nebraska, just south of Omaha.
In 1942, Tibbets was chosen to fly Maj. Gen. Mark W. Clark and Lt. Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower to Gibraltar after flying 43 combat missions over Europe. Then he returned to the United States in February 1943 to help with the problem-ridden development of the Boeing B-29 Superfortress bomber. In September 1944, he was appointed the commander of the 509th Composite Group, which a year later would conduct the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Why was Tibbets selected from the dozens of qualified pilots and command officers? Among the many reasons, at that time Tibbets was considered "the best flier in the Army Air Corps," according to historian Stephen Ambrose.
The 509th Composite Group was a fully self-contained organization consisting of 1,800 men and 15 B-29s, with a high priority for unlimited military supplies. Tibbets was given a choice of three possible bases: he selected Wendover, Utah, for its remoteness.
In January 1945, Tibbets brought his wife and family along with him to Wendover. He felt that allowing married men to bring their families would improve morale, however, it put a strain on his own marriage. To explain all the highly-technical civilian engineers who were working on the Manhattan Project, he had to lie to his wife, telling her the engineers were "sanitary workers." At one point Tibbets discovered his wife had recruited a scientist to unplug a drain in their apartment.
Above: “Fat Man”
Upon returning from the bombing run, Tibbets was awarded the Distinguished Service Cross by General Spaatz. Back home, he was seen as a national hero. In a 1975 interview, Tibbets told a reporter: "I'm proud that I was able to start with nothing, plan it and have it work as perfectly as it did ... I sleep clearly every night." He went on to say, "I knew when I got the assignment it was going to be an emotional thing. We had feelings, but we had to put them in the background. We knew it was going to kill people right and left. But my one driving interest was to do the best job I could so that we could end the killing as quickly as possible." A Hollywood film, “Above and Beyond,” starring Robert Taylor was made in 1952 about Tibbets leadership to develop the 509th Bomb Group in Utah and on Tinian. Tibbets was promoted to brigadier general in 1959. His grandson, Paul W. Tibbets IV, graduated from the U.S. Air Force Academy in 1989. Some 26 years later on June 5, 2015, Brig. General Paul W. Tibbets IV assumed command of his grandfather’s old squadron, the 509th Bomb Wing.
The senior Tibbets died in Columbus, Ohio on Nov. 1, 2007, at the age of 92. His ashes were scattered over the English Channel, where he had flown many missions across on bombing raids during the war.

Although most states honor that day it is not a Federal Holiday as many people expect. It is always a chance to acknowledge the stars and stripes, a symbol of this country. It has been carried into battles and celebrations in some form since the American Revolution. Check out the US Flag Code for all the rules. We are all Americans united under one banner, the Flag of the Unisted States of America.

Pastor Hal Seed, New Song Community Church, Oceanside
Isolation Is Not Normal… Or Is It?
A month ago, if you had told me that everyone I know would be forced to spend weeks in isolation, I would have balked at the idea. “It’s not normal! Nobody does that.”
I started looking through the Bible for cases of isolation. You know what I found?
The Bible starts with a man [Adam] in isolation, and ends with another one [John] exiled to an island. Maybe it’s more normal than we thought.
Adam’s son, Cain, was sentenced to isolation (Genesis 4). Noah was shut in the Ark with only his family (Genesis 7). Abram left everyone except his wife and nephew (Genesis 12). David hid in a cave (1 Samuel 22). Jesus spent forty days in the wilderness (Matthew 4). Paul spent multiple times in prison (Acts 23, 28, 2 Timothy). There’s something more normal about isolation than I knew.
Friend, we are not alone in our aloneness. Most of the great people of God experienced it. Now we get to say that we’ve joined them. Here’s what the Lord has to say on the subject:
“No temptation has come upon you except what is common to humanity. But God is faithful; he will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation he will also provide a way out so that you may be able to bear it.” 1 Corinthians 10:13 Lean in to this time! The Lord is with you, and He is faithful!What’s even better is, “he will also provide a way out…” We’ll be out of this soon enough.

repeatedly about all the famous men who have walked the grounds where I now play. What's the skinny?
Answer: your fellow golfers are correct about the legendary names who have played at Pauma. The most famous A-list of celebrities would have to be Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player and Mike Suchak who were in town in 1963 to appear on "Shell's Wonderful World of Golf" on CBS. The 18-hole course had opened three years earlier, with the onetime ranch home of actor John Wayne adjacent to the 14th hole. The house was razed in 1989.
Pauma Valley, many constructed of wood, have been lost to fire. Today, the oldest extant non-residential building in Valley Center is the Bear Valley Courthouse (1882) on Cole Grade Road, while the oldest purely commercial structure is Happyland Sanitorium (1924), now operating as Broken Rock Ranch, a lodge and camp on MacTan Road. In Pauma Valley, both the Kellogg Store (the currently-closed Pauma Store) and Lazy H motel and restaurant, both date to 1920.
I have driven down Cole Grade Road almost daily for years and was always curious about that odd name. Any significance to the word?
Answer: When the street was given that name a century or more ago, it was to honor the memory of a deceased County road agent. His name was Edward Kohl. Unfortunately, the sign maker apparently was given an oral order and the thoroughfare became Cole Grade Road instead of Kohl Grade Road. A case of mistaken identity. I've read about the oldest house in town somewhere on Lilac, but what's the oldest commercial building. I'm a real estate agent.
Sadly, the oldest historically-significant buildings in Valley Center and
Golf legend Arnold Palmer (third form left) was among the sport's biggest names who appeared in a televised tournament from Pauma Valley. That's auto tycoon John Delorean, a local resident, at far right.
To solve a local mystery, send an inquiry to firstname.lastname@example.org or call (760) 749-2993. A museum volunteer is on site at various hours during the week at the History Museum and responds to all inquiries.

Escondido • Mayor Paul “Mac” Mcnamara Greetings Escondido,
Last week I ended this column with the following line – “I’m saying this because we need to remember that we are a community, and when necessary we come together. It reminds once again why I love living here.” When I wrote that I was talking about the COVID 19 crisis. Since then we’ve watched on TV the death of George Floyd and the various responses to that death.
I think many of us were angered and frustrated when we watched the police officer put his knee to the neck of an American. Like me, I’m sure you wondered what kind of country are we living in that such force was used or even needed. But our frustration didn’t stop there as we watched two different scenarios play out. One was peaceful, yet forceful in its demand for social justice. The other was opportunistic and lawless which distracted us from the issue. Escondido has had the opportunity to respond more than once, and while we are not done yet, we’ve remembered that we are a community, and chose our voice to be peaceful. Thank you Escondido. That’s why I love living here. Stay informed, Be Kind, Remember your neighbor, and Stay safe! Semper Fi, Mac Paul P. McNamara Mayor of Escondido email@example.com

Vista • Mayor Judy Ritter
Don’t be Scamm ed During Pandem ic
Scammers are working overtime during the COVID19 pandemic - attempting to steal your money through a variety of methods, including by social and text messaging, websites, email, and of course, by phone. There are also scams targeting elderly populations. Seniors are approached by strangers at stores offering to shop and deliver their groceries for them. They will ask for money and their home address, but never deliver or even set up an arrangement to deliver or they may offer to clean and sanitize homes by going door-to-door or requiring prepayment over the phone. However, upon entering a home, the scammer might harm the individuals, steal items, or steal personal and financial information.
Remember, never provide personal information, including bank account information, to anyone you don't know, even if they claim they are a relative, the government (social security, IRS, etc.), or a charity. Oceanside - Mayor Peter Weiss
The Oceanside CA Cultural District (OCCD) has just unveiled four new freeway signs and three new street banners. The freeway signage has been installed by CalTrans at both the north and south Mission Avenue exits along the Interstate 5 Freeway. Thes signs bring attention to the state-designated Cultural District, a 3.6 square mile walkable area that celebrates the rich history, creativity and artistic endeavors that make Oceanside a unique cultural epicenter. The three new street banners were selected in an Oceanside High School photography student banner contest and are located along Mission Avenue in front of the school and highlight the students’ depiction of the district. Oceanside High School is enabling students with a deep understanding of the local creative industries, professional opportunities in the arts, and key skills that will make their graduates marketable in any career. Real world projects, like designing municipal banners, are deeply validating of young people as true artists with a great capacity for professional success.
