In tribute to his father, Halsey W. Taylor changed the world and made it a safer place to live. It was Taylor’s undying love for his dad which motivated him to keep others from suffering the same fate. You see, in 1896, Halsey Taylor’s father died of typhoid fever after drinking water that was contaminated. So, to honor his father’s memory, Taylor dedicated his life to creating a revolutionary drinking fountain in 1912, called the Puritan Sanitary Fountain. The Paper - 760.747.7119
June 13, 2019
Several years after his father’s death, Taylor realized that numerous workers were becoming sick with dysentery, where he was a plant superintendent for the Packard Motor Car Company. Sixteen years after losing his father, Taylor finally succeeded in developing a drinking fountain that was sanitary and would not contribute to the spreading of various diseases. During the First World War, Taylor continued improving his invention with the “Double Bubbler” drinking fountain. The fountain created
2 streams of water in an arc formation. Previously, drinkers placed their mouths directly on, or near, the faucet – all of which spread various germs. With Taylor’s drinking faucet, the arc of water allowed drinkers to be several inches away from the faucet, reducing the spread of communicable diseases. Reverting to cold drinking water, instead of room temperature, also diminished the spreading of germs at public fountains. By the 1920s and 1930s, the Double-Bubbler drinking fountain

accounted for over 80% of all drinking fountains in the entire United States. Even though Father’s Day only comes once a year, Halsey Willard Taylor of Warren, Ohio, honored his father every day of the calendar. When his father died – unnecessarily, from contaminated water – Halsey made a decision to continue honoring his daddy by dedicating his entire life in providing safe water fountains throughout the land. He wanted sanitary fountains which would allow a simple, safe

drink of water in public places, for everyone. He did it to honor the memory of his beloved father. His creation was the best Father’s Day memorial gift, ever. HOW OLD IS FATHER’S DAY?
Father’s Day is not a modern invention, by any stretch of the imagination. The idea of honoring one’s father extends back to the world’s earliest cultures. The ceremonies of celebrating and honoring fathers on specific days can be traced back to such early civilizations as Babylonia, to cite just one ancient example. Archeologists have discovered one of history’s oldest remnants of a Father’s Day card in the form of a clay tablet. A young Babylonian boy named Elmesu carved out this rudimentary father’s day card wishing his dad good health and long life. The special greeting was carved on a small clay tablet approximately 4,000 years ago!
Academics believe that this discovery indicates early tributes to fathers on special days.
Even though Father’s Day is celebrated on various days in many different parts of the world, mostly during the months of March, May,

and June, no single culture can claim to have originated the idea (or concept) of Father’s Day.
In 2019, over 70 different countries around the globe, including the United States, have chosen the 3rd Sunday of June to commemorate their versions of Father’s Day.
WHICH U. S. PRESIDENT SIGNED “FATHER’S DAY INTO LAW? A. George Washington. B. Franklin D. Roosevelt. C. Richard M. Nixon. While Congress was (relatively) quick to declare Mother’s Day as an official holiday in 1914, it took much longer for dear ol’ dad to gain equal recognition. So, if you selected “C” for Richard M. Nixon, you get a pat on the backside!
Although Father’s Day was celebrated very early in America in various ways, it wasn’t until 1972 when President Richard Nixon signed it into public law, making it an official, permanent holiday. The road to Father’s Day was a bumpy one, at best. The complicated legacy still causes confusion as to exactly when the holiday became absolutely official. In 1916 U. S. President Woodrow Wilson approved the idea of observing an annual Father’s Day in America. In 1924 President Calvin Coolidge

But, to reiterate, it wasn’t until 1972 when Father’s Day was signed into official law by President Richard M. Nixon, making Father’s Day a bona fide holiday – almost 60 years after Mother’s Day became a holiday!
For example, although greeting cards expressing “Happy Father’s Day” wishes are not the most expensive of gifts, they are, in fact, still “the most popular” Father’s Day gifts, nationwide. By sheer numbers and quantity, Father’s Day cards remain the No. 1 gift in America with over 87-million sold for dad’s special day! (Greeting cards are not to be confused with “gift cards.”)
And in 1966, President Lyndon Johnson signed the first-ever presidential proclamation declaring the 3rd Sunday of June as “Father’s Day.”
WHICH FATHER’S DAY GIFT DO WE SPEND THE MOST MONEY ON? A. Clothing (e.g. neckties). B. Electronics (e.g. shavers, music CDs). C. Dining Out. D. Money Gift Cards. All of the items listed above are popular gifts on Father’s Day, however, by far the most money spent on dear ol’ dad on Father’s Day is “C” dining out! According to the U. S. Consumer Report and the National Retail Association of America, a staggering $3-billion, $300-million will be spent on taking dad out to his favorite restaurant. Clothing (especially neckties) and gift cards (such as Visa) are tied for 2nd place with $2.2-billion spent on dad. Electronics (electric shavers, music CDs, TVs, etc.) bring up the rear for 3rd place with $1.8-billion, making electronic gifts the 3rd

Brain surgery normally only lasts about 15 minutes, maybe a half hour, depending upon which time zone in which the operating theatre is located.

FATHER’S DAY NECKTIES HAVE SHOCKING HISTORY!
As mentioned above, clothing is the 2nd most popular Father’s Day gift, and neckties for dad continues to be among the most popular of all. A shocking piece of trivia is that the necktie was long thought to date back as early as the 17th-century (1600s); however, archeologists have recently discovered that neckties are much older than that – by thousands of years!
The necktie and its variations (including ascot tie, cravat, bolo tie, etc.) have now been found to date as far back as 221 B. C., making the earliest form of dad’s neckties over 2,000-years-old!

This archeological discovery shocked the cultural and scientific world!
In March of 1974 in northwest China, an extraordinary discovery was unearthed which has been called “One of the greatest archaeological discoveries in modern times!”
Qin Shi Huangdi (259 B. C. – 210 B. C.), China’s first emperor, and his “Terracotta Army” were recently discovered to be ancient examples of men wearing neckties! When the Chinese ruler died, he was buried with his entire “Terracotta Army” of life-like statues. In 1974, the statue replicas of his army (8,000 full-size statue warriors) were all clearly shown wearing neckties!
The discovery area, and now museum, is located at the UNESCO World Heritage Site and – believe it or not – in 2019, the inner tomb is yet to be excavated! Over 700,000 convicts built what is now called the “Biggest Tomb Excavation in Chinese History!”
Some of the Terracotta life-size army warriors have already been on tour around the world, including at the Bowers Museum in Santa Ana, California. Smithsonian Institute Museum experts have openly stated: “Historians are now revising

“FATHER OF OUR COUNTRY” GEORGE WASHINGTON WAS NEVER A FATHER!
You don’t have to live in America to know about American history. When I was in England with my host family, I remember watching a re-run of the British television version of “Jeopardy!” which made Alex Trebek a household name in America. Paul Ross was the British version of Alex Trebek and the category of World History came up, along with the British question in the form of a statement: “Americans refer to him as The Father of Our Country.”
The English contestant quickly shouted the correct answer: “Who is George Washington?!!” A delicious bit of Father’s Day trivia, as well as an almost unknown fact to many, is that the celebrated “Father of Our Country,” George Washington, was never – in reality - a biological father!
It is highly ironic that this is so, even though one may argue that he was a “father” to the two children from his wife’s first marriage (the

previous Martha Custis). When Martha Custis became Martha Washington then, through marriage, George became stepfather to Martha’s two children from her previous husband.
The fact that Washington was unable to father his own progeny caused him great personal anguish and emotional trauma. A 2004 historical study scrutinized details as to why George Washington was unable to impregnate his wife, Martha. Forensic studies and academicians all suggest that a type of tuberculosis which Washington contracted during childhood “May have rendered him sterile.” Nonetheless, Mount Vernon was always filled with children for nearly 40 years of his marriage, including grandchildren.
His great consolation was that he played the real-life role as “father” to all of them. Which brought him immeasurable joy and laughter. Especially when they drew with crayons on special over-sized cards expressing their love for him. Early tributes of Father’s Day sentiments.

Think carefully, before you decide. Life is often very deceiving.
If you selected “B” for fathers of newborn babies today being older than previous generations – well, you are correct! According to the U. S. Census and other national studies, all reliable data agree and show that: “The average age of fathers of newborns are olderer today than nearly 50 years ago (1972) or even 83 years ago (1936)”
The surprising results of these different researchers have already appeared online titled “Human Reproduction,” by lead author Yash Khandwala from the University of California at San Diego. The average age of a father of a newborn in 1936 has been increasing through the years in age. In 1972 (almost half a century ago), the average age of fathers of newborn babies rose to a high of 27.6 years-old. Today, according to a recent scientific release titled, “New Fathers Are Older Than

On June 6, 2019 at 12:50 p.m., Officers from the Carlsbad Police Department responded to Innovation Way and Palomar Airport Road reference a report of a motorcyclist down.
Upon arrival, officers located a motorcyclist down with a compound fracture to his leg. Preliminary reports show that a subject driving a Mazda changed lanes, in turn, cutting off the motorcyclist and causing the collision. The 31-year-old motorcyclist was transported to a local area hospital for his injuries. No other parties were injured. The collision investigation is ongoing, but the roadway is now open. Alcohol intoxication is not believed to have played a role in the collision. Oceanside Councilman Chris Rodriguez, on the job for only six months, is asking for a raise.
Oceanside Councilmember Chris Rodriguez
The city of Oceanside and its city council just got a bit more interesting thanks to a recently elected councilman, Chris Rodriguez, who, after serving all of six months, decides he wants
a raise. This drew the ire of fellow council member, Esther Sanchez. “I am absolutely astounded that we would even consider that for half a second,” Sanchez said when the issue surfaced at Wednesday’s council meeting. “This is a public service. It is embarrassing that anyone on this dais would vote to say give me more money.”
Rodriguez responded, “I’ve come to realize this is not a part-time position; this is a full-time position.” He suggested the council schedule a workshop to discuss this and other issues, including the setting of term limits.
Sanchez is an Oceanside native and an attorney who retired from the county public defender’s office in 2008. All of the council members have second jobs or other income streams, she said.
Voters would have to approve a ballot measure changing the city charter to make the 20-hour, part-time City Council jobs full time and increase the salaries. San Diego, with a population of 1.4 million, is the only city in the county with a full-time council. Oceanside has 170,000 residents. “I work full time (at the council job), but I do it because I care,” said Sanchez. “This is my commitment to the community.” Council members receive a base annual salary of $34,000 a year in Oceanside, and the mayor gets $37,000. Each council member, except Mayor Peter Weiss, employs a full-time aide who receives an annual salary of $46,000 to

Making the council job full time and paying a full-time salary would attract a wider slate of more qualified candidates for the job, Rodriquez said. Rodriguez said the council also should consider imposing its first term limits, and other council members suggested adding campaign finance reform and council aides to the discussion. The council voted 4-0 to schedule the workshop. Sanchez refused to vote, saying salaries should not be part of the discussion.
Other political observers were heard to comment that Rodriguez apparently did not do his homework before running for office, otherwise he would have been well aware of the time commitment and could have eitther decided not to run or withdrawn from the race. At age 33, he was elected in November, 2018. Summer Meals Offered by Escondido Schools and Parks

The meals are offered to ensure that local children get nutritious food over the summer while school is out. Elementary campuses and Washington Park will serve meals Monday through Friday. Meals will be offered at the high schools Monday through Thursday, when summer school is in session. The high school sites serve about 1,000 students per day, said high school district spokeswoman Karyl O’Brien.

Ever,” the study revealed an increased average age of 31.1 years-old (for new fathers of newborn babies in America). Even accounting for margin of error and unreported paternal data, this “new older fathers of newborn babies since 2015” is a shared consensus across the United States. The National Vital Statistics System, which records births and deaths reported by all 50 U. S. states, supports these new findings. If this “aging trend” continues for first-time fathers, then future “Father’s Day” celebrations will continue to be for older first-time dads!
Interesting note: This trend of older fathers of newborn babies is not only here in the United States – it is occurring in several countries. Regarding first-time dads in Germany today, the average age is 33.1 years-old; in England it’s closer to 34. Japan saw the largest increase in average age, jumping to 36.3 years of age (for fathers of newborns today). WHAT IS THE OLDEST AGE FOR A FIRST-TIME BIOLOGICAL FATHER? A. 84-years-old.

age of a man having his first baby is “B,” 94-years-old. Ramjit Raghav, in Haryana, India, fathered his first child in 2010 at the great age of 94. It has been reported that he fathered a second child at age 96. Though there have been many claims from around the world of older, first-time dads, hard confirmation facts were suspiciously missing. In America, 102-year-old former pastor, James E. Smith, was said to have fathered twin daughters at age 101. However, no “confirmed hard data” is available to adequately satisfy researchers.

You should be sitting down while reading this because the answer will buckle your knees! If you guessed “C” for 210 children you, unbelievably, are correct!

That’s what happens when you don’t have a television! Just imagine all the Father’s Day cards he could get!
U. S. PRESIDENT WHO FATHERED THE MOST CHILDREN:
knowledgeable staff that can get things done, can often cut through red tape and that makes for good government - taking care of the constituency.
I was so impressed with Tom shortly after I met him that I suggested he run for public office. He certainly had the contacts, the experience, and the “get ‘er done” attitude that makss for success. He declined the suggesetion, feeling he can be of greater service to the community right where he is (plus he doesn’t have to spend much of his time fundraising and politicking.) If and when the elected office changes Tom will always have a job for as long as he wants it. People like him are in high demand. Tom has helped me and my family out on several occasions. In Sacramento, Jayme Chick, Marie’s Chief of Staff, has also been helpful in cutting through red tape and making good things happen.
Ultimately, it comes down to Marie Waldron having the talent and ability to recognize and hire good talent and then, after giving them their assignments, staying out of their way and let them do what they do best. Cut red tape and get the job done. Proud to salute Tom Stinson, Jayme Chick and, of course, Marie Waldron.

Correct answer is “A” John Tyler (1790-1862), who had 15 biological children!
WHICH CELEBRITY BELOW HAD A NEWBORN BABY AT THE OLDEST AGE? A. Comedian Steve Martin. B. Actor Clint Eastwood. C. Ex-Beatles, Paul McCartney. D. Rolling Stone, Mick Jagger. This is a fun question to ponder because all of the above celebs are so famous and popular! But, it you picked “D” Mick Jagger, you’re right on the money! In December of 2016, Rolling Stone legend Mick Jagger became a father for the 8th time at age 73. At the time, his wife Melanie Hamrick, was 29. Steve Martin became a first-time father at age 67; actor Clint Eastwood became a father again at age 66, and former Beatles member, Paul McCartney became a father again at age 61.
There are, of course, other celebrities that became fathers at much older ages than those cited above (e.g. actor Anthony Quinn of “Zorba the Greek” fame became the father of his 12th child at age 81). The celebrities above were selected due to their greater familiarity to the general public. WHAT FATHER-DAUGHTER DUET SONG WAS 1992 “RECORD OF THE YEAR”?

A. “Unforgettable,” by Natalie & Nat King Cole. B. “Something Stupid,” by Nancy & Frank Sinatra.
Though both father-daughter songs listed above were smash hits, with Nancy Sinatra singing with her father on the 1967 hit single “Something Stupid,” the correct answer is “A” for “Unforgettable,” sung by Natalie and her late, great father, Nat King Cole, in 1992.
The legendary singer, Nat King Cole died at the young age of 45 in 1965, so how was it possible for him to sing with his daughter, Natalie Cole, in 1992, a quarter century after his death? For Natalie Cole, Father’s Day was an extra special day to show her undying love for her father; a day when she would spend extra special time with him. So, after his passing, she found another way to reunite with him . . . at least in song.
In 1991, she made a dream come true in the recording studio. She had her father’s singing voice, electronically, transferred onto another music track to merge with her own singing. Her father’s pre-recorded voice was singing his legendary 1951 hit song, “Unforgettable.”
Long after his death, Natalie yearned to once again sing with him. As a little girl, at only age 6,

she sang on her daddy’s Christmas album, “The Magic of Christmas,” and began performing at age 11. Now, as the recording studio played Nat King Cole singing those immortal lyrics on tape, his daughter Natalie sang along in “real time.” Her “live” singing was then mixed-in with her father’s prerecorded voice. She was now singing a duet song with her daddy, once again!
Natalie recalled that moment: “Nothing had been attempted like that, to life Dad’s voice, literally, off of that track and put it on a brandnew one, and then line it up. I remember listening – everyone listening at the end, and we were just enthralled. It was really wonderful.” This historic, groundbreaking 1991 album would send emotional shockwaves to the four-corners of the music world, winning 7 Grammy Awards in 1992, including best song and album. It was a most breathtaking achievement! A girl, and her long-lost daddy who had been dead 27 years, somehow breached the vault of time-andspace to re-unite on the world stage.
Accepting her Grammy Award in front of a global audience, Natalie Cole was, once again, reduced to a little girl as she momentarily looked skyward, as if honoring her father once again, with love. The official song title said it all: “Unforgettable, With Love: Natalie Cole Sings the Songs of Nat ‘King’ Cole.” Natalie Cole was unusually close to her daddy, and she lost him as a young girl, just 9 days after her birthday. She never recovered from her feelings of eternal separation of father-daughter and felt cheated out of her precious time she might have continued to have with him. She once tearfully remarked: “God was going to be to me the father that I never had, the father that I didn’t have enough of . . . enough time with.” For Natalie Cole, Father’s Day was an extra special day to be with her father, the man in her life of whom there was no equal.
Natalie so deeply loved her father that, even as a small infant, she would misbehave – on purpose -just to get her daddy’s extra attention! As she once recalled in her own words: “I continually acted up to get attention. My father gave me that (attention), and once he left (died), I felt that I didn’t have any attention, anymore.” She recalled her precious time with her father as a little girl: “My first trip to Mexico was with my dad because of his Spanish records. That was back in 1958. I found a picture of me when I was 8 yearsold dressed as a little senorita. I’ve always loved Spanish. I love my father’s Spanish records.”
Father’s Day for Natalie Cole was sacred. And timeless. She never missed an opportunity of expressing her love for him. In 2013, almost 50 years after his death, she would be a guest on Tina Sinatra’s “Father’s Day Special” on Sirius Radio. There, on the air, Natalie would reminisce about her beloved father.
The depth of despair in losing her daddy when she was still a young girl, never healed. She would remark in quiet tones: “I didn’t realize I was still grieving for my father at 30-something years of age.” Such moments would transform her back into a little girl. Her memories and her childhood were the only places in the cosmos where her daddy still existed. Natalie’s eyes would turn moist, and her voice often trailed-off to a soft whisper, and she would slowly give voice to her inner feelings: “When I was old enough to walk home alone from school, I loved seeing our house from a distance. It sat on the corner of South Murfield Road and West 4th Street and had this proud, majestic look. I loved when my daddy was home. He liked to sit in the living room and watch boxing and baseball on TV. Or he’d be tinkering around or listening to records by his musician buddies.” Even as a small child, she would learn new tricks, new strategies to become closer to him. She surprised him in many ways with her drama and unorthodox behavior.
“I loved when my daddy was home,” she often repeated. As a little girl walking home by herself, her little heart beat ever faster when the familiar sight of her home came into view. “But, I rarely went through the front door. The back door was far more dramatic.” She knew all the tricks to get her daddy’s attention and “hold centre stage.” And little Natalie could never stop telling her daddy how special he was. Especially on Father’s Day.
Natalie Maria Cole died from congestive heart failure in 2015 at the age of 65. Throughout her lifetime, she followed the footsteps of her father, often re-tracing the past – step by step – to stay close to him. In 1979, Natalie was awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Her daddy, Nat King Cole, already had 2 stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame (one for TV and one for music).
It seemed little Natalie was still chasing after her daddy, always attempting to close the gap which death had created in separating them. She had already re-united with him in song, both singing the heart-tugging lyrics of “Unforgettable,” together. And

Help for Youth Addiction
Every two days a young person in California dies from an opioid overdose. More and more opioid dependent children are treated in emergency departments than ever before -- increasing by 54% over the past ten years.
While there is no single treatment or remedy for substance abuse, it is clear that early intervention programs aimed at youthful abusers are comprehensive and effective. That’s why I have joined with Assemblymember Adrin Nazarian (D – Van Nuys) to co-author Assembly Bill 1031.
The bill establishes the Youth Substance Use Disorder (SUD) Treatment and Recovery Program, which requires the Department of Health to establish communitybased initiatives aimed at intervention and treatment for underage alcohol and drug abusers. In collaboration with counties and providers of SUD services, regulations will be established for treatment and recovery, along with program requirements and standards. Medi-Cal billing codes will be updated to include screening, counseling and other services. AB 1031 will also enable community-based providers of youth SUD treatments

to be reimbursed appropriately, so that the current gap in services in many parts of California can be reduced or eliminated.
As we all know, the individual and societal costs of drug abuse are huge. Crime, deaths, homelessness, broken families, dropout rates, the related costs of law enforcement and incarceration, suffering – all can be prevented through early intervention and treatment. Most important of all, lives can be saved. AB 1031 enjoys wide bi-partisan support, and passed the Assembly without opposition on May 28th. The bill has been forwarded to the Senate, where hearings are pending.
As your Assembly representative, I will continue working to break the cycle of substance use disorder that costs taxpayers millions, devastates families and cuts short far too many lives. 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.

Another long time pal is Ed Gallo. Ed served as an Escondido City Councilman for a number of years, losing his seat in the last election to Consuelo Martinez. For a brief time Ed worked for The Paper as a sales representative. On several occasions we made calls together and I took notice that he would often see a street that needed some repair or some other civic situation that he was closely following. His mind was always on city business and, even though now out of office, is probably still seeing problems that need attention. He’s a low key kinda guy. Often quiet, but get him involved in an issue in which he has an interest and he’ll discuss it at length.

Historically Speaking by Tom Morrow
The 1930s Plot to Overthrow FDR
Ever think there could be a coup to government? our overthrow Impossible? Think again.
In 1934, the American news media discovered there had been a year-old plot to overthrow President Franklin D. Roosevelt in favor of a fascist government.
Reportedly in the works since 1933, the claims of the conspiracy came from Marine Maj. Gen. Smedley Butler, one of the most-decorated war heroes of his time. Even more unbelievable were his claims of who was involved in the plot – respected finance and business names such as Robert Sterling Clark, Grayson M.P. Murphy, and Prescott Bush, father of former President George H.W. Bush, and grandfather of former President George W. Bush.
at nearly $2 million today), which Butler could use to bring veteran supporters to the convention. The general was stunned: there was very little chance that a group of veterans had been able to gather such a vast amount of funds. Even worse was the speech that MacGuire asked Butler to deliver – a speech which was highly critical of FDR’s recent move away from the gold standard.
In 1933, the abandonment of the gold standard was a major sticking point for high-ranking financiers. Many bankers were fearful their goldbacked loans would not be re-paid in full by FDR’s new policies. The departure from the gold standard just added to other concerns about the President’s policies, particularly his socialist leanings and his plans to provide jobs for the unemployed. Some in the world of business even suspected he was a communist. Butler was told he’d be the ideal leader of veterans, promising him an army of 500,000 men and financial backing from an assortment of rich businessmen, so long as he would be willing to lead a peaceful march on the White House to displace Roosevelt.
Butler flatly refused to deliver the speech. After parting ways, he heard little until MacGuire began travelling through Europe on a trip funded by Robert Sterling Clark, an heir to the Singer Sewing Machine fortune.
MacGuire believed the only way to save the country from FDR’s policies was to create a military state run by former servicemen, with Roosevelt serving as a mere figurehead.
Born in 1881, Butler came from a line of civil-servicemen: his father, Thomas Butler, was a representative for the state of Pennsylvania in Congress, and his maternal grandfather, Smedley Darlington, was also a Republican congressman.
The most decorated Marine of all time, serving 34 years in the Corps. Butler was rewarded two Medals of Honor, an Army Distinguished Service Medal, the Marine Corps Brevet Medal, a Navy Distinguished Service Medal and a host of other honors for the field of battle.
In 1933, Butler was approached by Gerald C. MacGuire, a bond salesman, and Bob Doyle, an executive with the Legion. During their first meeting MacGuire and Doyle asked the general to speak at a Legion convention in Chicago. Butler was at first open to the idea because the Legion had several issues that ultimately compromised veteran benefits.
However, the Marine general began to suspect something was amiss during their second meeting. The general was shown bank statements amounting to over $100,000 (valued
Butler knew he would need to corroborate this plan in order to stop the intended coup. The general reached out to Philadelphia Record writer Paul Comly French, who agreed to meet with MacGuire. The plan was repeated detailing a fascist state, of which MacGuire believed was the only answer and General Smedley was the “ideal leader.” In November 1934, Butler and French appeared before the House Un-American Activities committee revealing the plot to seize the presidency. After hearing the testimony, the committee found all of Butler’s claims were factual.
Quickly becoming known as the “White House Coup” and “Wall Street Putsch,” many major newspapers derided Butler’s claims when some of the committee’s final report leaked out. However the full explosive report was not officially made public until this century.
No one was ever prosecuted in connection to the plot. The general’s account was published in his 1935 book, War is a Racket. There’s no telling how far the plot to overthrow FDR may have gone without Butler’s intervention. Its failure was the work of one patriotic Marine general. Butler died in 1940 at the age of 58.

It seemed that even the hand of Death could not succeed in keeping them apart. But it left residual damage to her heart and soul. By her own admission, Natalie Cole never truly recovered from her father’s death. It haunted her into drugs, spiraling her life out-of-control and finally seeing her enter a drug rehab center in 1983. Complicating things was her diagnosis with hepatitis C, necessitating dialysis 3 times a week for 9 months. In 2009 she underwent a kidney transplant which eventually would fail. Her life was fragile and broken, going through 3 different marriages.
would eventually say: “God surrounded me with people of faith, people of strong faith, people of power, spiritual power, and I saw little miracles happen in their lives. By it happening in their lives, I started believing it could happen to me.” Miracles were her last desperate, hope. Her final and only hope, to (perhaps) find a way, a doorway, a road that will somehow take her on a spiritual journey – a journey that will reunite her with her precious daddy whom she lost as a little girl. It would be the best of miracles. Natalie Maria Cole (1950–2015), died a devout Christian. She died with hope in her heart.
Because her death was from heart failure, some fans wildly speculated that her heart simply gave-up, because she could no longer bear to see another year without her father. Coincidence or not, she died on New Year’s Eve of 2015, just prior to entering into another new year.
In her autobiography titled, “Angel On My Shoulder,” she says: “I’ve been to hell and back. I have seen the edge. I have seen the dark side of life.” Prior to her death, she had found faith to be her greatest rock to which to cling and reclaim. She

‘Jay’ Parker Turned 101 Years Old on May 2nd -
On May 2nd, ONE HUNDRED ONE YEARS AGO Joseph James ‘Jay’ Parker was born in Cleveland, Ohio, the oldest of four siblings in an itinerant Midwestern family where survival was primary. At a very young age, Jay worked logging in the
woods near his home. When Jay turned sixteen the Great Depression was well underway and he left home to forage for himself. His home was a tent typically near the railroad where he would hop boxcars to travel and find work. At times when Jay was cold and hungry, he would go to the local jail and ask for a warm place to sleep and eat a hot meal. While riding the rails, an incident with a hobo changed his life forever. His boxcar mate told Jay he was going to join the Marines where there would be a warm place to sleep, three square meals a day and dry boots for his feet. Jay decided the United States Marine Corps was for him, and joined the Corps on February 10th, 1937, in New Orleans, with initial assignment to MCRD, San Diego for Basic Training and Sea School for shipboard training. Initial active duty assignment was to Embassy Duty in China followed by 3 1/2 years aboard USS Nevada as Machine Gunner. Jay took an Honorable Discharge in 1938 so he could marry Dee, (his wife of 70 years). Following the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor, Jay re-enlisted in the Marines and was assigned as Military Police, Naval Station Bremerton, WA, Military Police Oakland, CA Naval Station and his first assignment to Camp Pendleton as a Machine Gun Trainer.
WW-II orders sent Jay to three years of jungle combat in Guadalcanal, New Britain and Battle of Peleliu, three of the Pacific’s most fierce island fights. Still in the Pacific Theater, Jay was in preparation for the invasion of Japan when the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki ended WW-II. Post Korean War assignments included four years of “combat instruc-

tion” back at Camp Pendleton and recruiting duty in Little Rock, AR. Post war assignment of Camp Pendleton lasted until then Sargent-Major Parker was ordered to support the Korean War where he was twice wounded and awarded two Purple Hearts. Throughout his military career he earned numerous medals and awards (to numerous to list). He retired from active duty January 26, 1951. He served three years of reserve duty with Secretary Navy’s Fleet Marine Force committee requiring travel to Washington DC from Little Rock, AR and Nebraska. In 1977, he moved home to Vista. He served with the S.D. Sheriff Volunteers for 16 years and during that volunteer work he met, worked with and married Anne Pion ten years ago. They now enjoy retirement in their Vista home overlooking Vista High School with Camp Pendleton in the distance. Recently the Vista Chamber of Commerce named Jay as Military Veteran of the Year during the 2019 Heroes of Vista program.

The Pastor Says...
in church as infants. Those were wonderful ceremonies, but they miss the richness of the symbolism Jesus intended.
Why Christians Baptize in the Ocean
Baptism is a symbol of receiving a brand new life. The Greek word “baptizo” means “to plunge into.” The picture Jesus had in mind was that those who have trusted in Him would be lowered into the water like we will one day be lowered into a coffin. It’s a picture of burial, then resurrection. It’s a way of saying, “I’ve died to myself and Jesus is now living His life through me.”
Baptism is the means by which Jesus asked His followers to publicly declare their faith in Him. His final words were “Go into all the world and make disciples, baptizing them in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, teaching them to obey all that I have commanded you” (Matthew 28:19-20). Many Americans grew up in homes where we were sprinkled
New Song’s Beach Baptism is Sunday, June 23, north of the pier at Tower 12. We’ll barbecue at noon and begin baptizing people about 2p.m. You are welcome to join us. Seeing all the smiling faces coming up out of the water will be something you’ll remember for a long, long time.
Pastor Hal Seed New Song Community Church, Oceanside
Head to the beach almost any Sunday afternoon between now and Labor Day and you’ll probably see a group of smiling people from one church or another. What are they doing there? Baptisms.
Jesus called Himself, “the living water that gives everlasting life.” The Didache, one of the most ancient Christian writings outside of the New Testament, encourages all Christ-followers to be baptized, if possible, in “living water.” The ocean’s waves make it as alive as any water on earth.

Escondido • Mayor Paul “Mac” Mcnamara Greetings Escondido,
We will be voting on next year’s budget that starts this July, and I think the city staff did a good job. It is balanced and reflects our community values. Next year will be tougher for we have that Sacramento bill I referenced last week that we have to pay. That bill is not trivial and will really force us to reflect on what we value. It’s the old expression of putting your money… That said, I think we are up to the challenge. I’m expecting and hoping for a lot more resident input into the discussion throughout FY 19/20 to get ready for 20/21.
I met and meet with a lot of groups and I can’t express enough how important those meetings are. It gives me as a policy maker, insight as to what is happening in a particular area. The conversations give me the “rest of the story” and help us make better decisions. Two highlights this week of events I attended were COMPACT 2019 Shining Stars Celebration and the CCAE 25th anniversary kickoff. We really have a great city! Thank you.

“Getting down to brass tacks”
In the dry goods stores of the early 1900s, a customer would select a bolt of cloth for consideration and the merchant would roll it out on the counter. The counter was studded with “brass tacks” spaced a foot apart. The merchant would measure the cloth and apply the yardage cost to give the customer a price. If the customer was satisfied with the product, the amount and the price the merchant would cut the cloth. “Getting down to brass tacks” became idiomatic for the relationship between buyer and seller leading to an informed buying decision. The consumer could see and feel the product,
American Quilts By Jeff Figler
A few years ago my wife and I dropped our son at Dickinson College in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, so that he could attend a few summer classes. We were then going to drive to the Shenandoah Mountains area, spend some time there, and pick him up a couple weeks later. Well, we didn’t quite make it.
--We spent the first day in Blue Bell, Pennsylvania, shopping. After going through a few stores and seeing Amish quilts we were hooked. The quilts were amazing. The details and the intricacy of the quilts were simply hard to imagine. I asked a few shopkeepers about the quilts and was told that many of the Amish people depend on quilting for their livelihood.
I realize that the Amish are not the only people who make quilts, but it did make me think about how quilting first came to America. Well, I found out.
The history of quilts started long before the Brits arrived in the colonies. The word “quilt” actually comes from the Latin word “culcita” which means a “stuffed sack.” Nowadays, we think of a quilt as a cloth sandwich, with a top, which is almost always the decorated part, a back, and a filler in the middle. There are usually thought to be three different types of quilts, namely, the plain or whole cloth quilt, applique quilts, and pieced or patchwork quilts.
In those days the merchant and customer usually knew one another because their social lives often intersected in small town and neighborhood America. Today, not so much. Merchandising is entirely impersonal. In the glass and steel mercantile of today, the sales staff is anonymous and so are you. The emphasis is on making a sale, not meeting your needs. It isn’t that people have become uncaring. It’s just that it is difficult to foster a caring, nurturing relationship with someone you’ve never met and will probably never see again. That’s just the way things are today.
at our shop means having an interactive relationship with our customers that results in each of us having the clearest understanding of what the needs are and what options will most perfectly meet those needs. That could mean the repair or upgrade of a customer’s PC. It could be the purchase of a standard or modified “refurb” desktop, notebook or All-in One. For special applications like gaming we may design and build a custom PC. We might even need to make a trip to their home or business in order to set up local networks and peripherals.
Internet. We are pretty good at finding optimal and cost effective solutions to computer related problems. We feel like our job is complete when we’ve given you all the information you need to make a decision. If you decide to pop over to Fry’s and buy a Macintosh after talking to us, we won’t get mad. We’d just figure you have plenty of problems of your own.
dozen of quilts before she became engaged. Her baker’s dozen consisted of 12 utility pieced quilts, and 1 great quilt, either a pieced or applique quilt for her bridal bed. One other custom was for mothers to make several quilts for each of her children to have when they left home.
women, and also among artists as a means of expressing their creativity.
The point is that we are a very different shopping experience than “big box” stores or the
Fair warning, we do tend to treat you more like friends than customers. We like to get to know you and tend to joke around. It’s just the way we were raised. We won’t do anything creepy like give you a bear hug, shoulder massage or smell your hair unless you really want us to.
While super stores and the Internet are the major engines of retail commerce these days, there are still plenty of small, often family owned businesses that cater to those of us who feel comfortable having real conversations and actually enjoy personal relationships. Young folks like our Millennials often don’t feel comfortable with “small town” friendliness. They prefer the anonymity of “big box” merchandising. This probably represents a modern, perhaps even accelerating change in our social relationships, but we ‘old school types” like things the old way. So “getting down to brass tacks”
Originally in America, a quilt was strictly used for providing warm covers for beds. They were also used as hangings for doors and windows that were not sealed well enough to keep out the cold.
The earliest quilts in America were made by English and Dutch settlers. Early settlers could not afford to merely discard blankets when they became worn out. Therefore, when blankets become worn, they were patched, combined with other blankets, or used as filler between other blankets. They were put together to keep people warm.
Many of the quilts that were pieced and patched between 1750 and 1850 are preserved to this day. Some are so elaborate that they are regarded as precious heirlooms, and preserved in homes and museums.
As for the Amish, in the early 1700s they began settling in the Pennsylvania farmlands as well as in the Midwest. They had emigrated from Europe with the hope that they would have the freedom to live according to their religion.
In general, quilting became very popular as the country expanded. The Medallion style of quilt was popular in the early 1800s, which had a central motif surrounded by multiple borders. A “tufted” quilt was used as well, which was tied in enough places to keep the filling intact.
In the 1800s, a custom developed that a young girl needed to make a baker’s
In the mid-1800s the sewing machine was introduced, which served to lessen the dependence on handsewing, but hand-quilting still remained the favorite method for the next 100 years.
With the development of the frontier, quilting became more of a creative art than one of necessity. More and more women had the time and money to pursue quilting.
During World War I, the U.S. government urged citizens to make quilts for the soldiers. In World War II, quilting was used to raise money to support the Red Cross. “Signature quilts” became popular. In a “signature quilt”, people or businesses would pay to have their names embroidered on quilt blocks. The blocks were then sewn together and quilted, and the finished quilt was then raffled, with the proceeds going to the Red Cross. A great surge of popularity for American quilts occurred in 1976 with the Bicentennial celebration. The quilt became a means of expressing national pride and achievement, as well as a means of reminding people of the past. Nowadays, quilting still remains popular, as a leisure activity among
However, quilts are also very popular among collectors. High prices are often paid for quilts when they are auctioned.
As an example, an 1884 Folk Art quilt for the campaign of Republican James Blaine for President and John Logan for Vice-President sold for $9500 at auction. Another political quilt, this one from 1880, promoting the campaign of James Garfield, sold for over $14,000 in a Heritage Auction. Finally, a circus bed quilt from the early 1900s went for over $17,000.
Quilts have certainly become impressive works of art, and cherished by people of all ages and walks of life.

3. If you need to be outside, go in the morning or late in the day, when temperatures are coolest. 4. Teach your dog to walk on a leash correctly before you start running with them. Don’t allow him to cross in front of you or pull excessively. 5. Use a harness instead of a collar. The collar will put strain on their neck and may cut off their airway.
6. Find shaded areas to rest. Always bring plenty of cool water and a collapsible bowl for your dog. 7. Allow your dog to run on the grass or other soft surface as much as possible. Pavement can be rough on their paws and joints, and if the weather is hot, pavement or asphalt can burn the pads of their paws. A good rule of thumb is to place yor hand on the pavement. If you can’t hold it there for longer than five seconds, the ground is too hot for your dog to walk on.
8. Dogs can get sunburned too – don’t forget to protect hairless and light-coated dogs with sunscreen.
9. Be alert for signs of heat stress: heavy panting, glazed eyes, a rapid pulse, unsteadiness, a staggering gait, vomiting or a deep red tongue. If you believe your pet is suffering from heat exhaustion, get them to an emergency vet clinic right away. 10. Always remember your poop bags!
BSA Troop 752 Flag Retirement Ceremony - On Monday, May 20, 2019, Boy Scout Troop 752 retired 20 United States flags at Guajome Regional Park as a continuous service to the community for 70 years. Established in 1949, Troop 752 is proud to continue this service to its community. Scout Master Jason Stewart said: "We live in a time where we desperately need examples of patriotism and unity in America. The BSA is a great source to provide our youth with this foundation. I am proud of
our boys for their patriotic service to the community." As 20 flags were retired, each patrol read one of the United States Constitution Amendments. Declan, age 14, stated: "This means everything to me. Love for my country and love for my troop. I was proud to lead the ceremony today." At the end of the ceremony, the scouts sang God Bless America. Aaron, age 13, stated: "I was honored to be given the opportunity
