Volume 47 - No. 24
By Friedrich Gomez
All dads are super heroes, they just don’t wear a cape. They are truly the unsung heroes of our galaxy.
Dads come in all sorts of shapes, colors and sizes, but don’t let that fool you. They all come pre-assembled to act, talk, and behave in the exact same way. For example, all dads have a tool box in their garage which they love to show off to other visiting dads. The topic of tools usually comes up when dads are sitting in the living room talking sports: “Hey, Bob, did I ever show you the new set of tools I just got?” That’s when the sparks begin to fly – literally. Sometimes dad will fire up the ol’ electric drill set or rev up the electric buzz saw. When mom sees the lights dim in the house, she knows that dad is showing off his arsenal of Black and Decker tools.
All alpha-dads love to show off their fix-it skills by strapping on a heavy utility belt full of various tools and walk about the house. If they see something that is broken, you can usually tell within the first 5 seconds if dad’s in over his head. He’ll usually stare at the broken appliance for a while and then rub his chin and say something under his breath like, “Hmm, the doohickey has come out of the thingamabob, so I think the thingamajig is hanging off the whatchamacallit.” If you’re standing next to dad when he’s saying all of this, well, it usually all translates to: “Son, go get the duct tape.” Dads can fix just about anything with duct tape.
You see, dads can’t help trying to fix things with their tools; they have tools encoded in their genetic make-up, it’s in their genes, pure and simple. In fact, science has proven that the DNA of all dads is shaped like a tool box.
Dads are also basically the same in the way they talk to one another. They have their own language and expressions that only other dads can (fully) understand. They say secret things in ‘Dad Speak,’ kinda like when religious folk speak in ‘tongues’ at revival meetings. When I was only 6 years old I heard my dad ask his friend: “So, Willy, how’s life treating you?” That’s when Willy spoke in Dad Speak: “Oh, I dunno. According to my wife I’m happily married.”
I remember watching dad shaking his head and he also began to talk in Dad Speak: “Yeah, I hear you. But if it weren’t for marriage, men would go through life thinking they had no faults at all.” Another time I heard one of dad’s friends, Mr. Henderson, complain in coded Dad Speak, “My sex life is like shooting billiards with a rope.”

That’s when I heard Mr. Henderson say he was going to visit Viagra Falls that year.
All dads love beer and love to shout during TV sports events. As a small kid I used to run bases for my dad during these testosterone sports gatherings. But instead of bases I’d run beer from the fridge to anyone sitting empty-handed on the couch. It was a tough job for a 6-year-old because my legs were short and dad’s friends could sure keep me running.
It’s only a matter of time during these marathon beer runs when one of the dads will eventually ask you to pull his finger. It makes no difference if your dad is from China, Russia, Europe or America – they will ask you, in their respective language, to “pull my finger.” It’s a universal trait because all dads accumulate gas and beer accelerates this process. Mom said dad’s beer gut is actually a liquid grain storage facility. In any case, I think in Russian, “pull

my finger” roughly translates to: “Trigger finger schtinken muffler siss boom,” but I’m not sure. After so many beers, they all begin to talk and sound funny and it’s not always easy to understand them. When I asked my dad’s good friend, Mr. Tatum, what his favorite beer is he said to me: “An open one.” That’s when I knew I had to run back to the fridge.
I think Father’s Day is one of the coolest days of the year because dad is plenty worth it. And he comes without a price tag. There’s no cash register in the world that can ‘ring up’ dad, simply because he’s priceless. How do you repay someone who has protected you, financially supported you, and taught you priceless pearls of wisdom, like: “When you get married Son, never go to bed angry with your wife. Stay up and fight.” A lot of what dad said made a lot of sense. He taught me how to fight fair:
“Don’t raise your voice – improve your argument.” Yep, that’s dad, all right.
But, then again, dads know how to fight dirty if they have to. So, the ‘don’t raise your voice – improve your argument’ philosophy sometimes flies out the window. For instance, when my grandpa was a young dad he did not take a shine to his next door neighbor, Mr. Peeves, but he never showed it openly. But when Mr. Peeves’ little boy turned 4-years-old, my grandpa gave him a trumpet for his birthday present. Odd thing was . . . Mr. Peeves was never known to be an early-riser. But that all changed at his little boy’s birthday party.
Dads come with various nicknames, such as “Pop” or “Daddy” or “ATM machine.” Mom especially sees daddy as an ATM machine. I’ve heard dads say that moms have stretch-marks but the stretch-marks are all on their credit

cards because moms over-use them. Billy Rosenstiel swears that his dad refused to report his stolen credit card because the thief was spending less money than his mom.
Dads are very complex machines, only they have skin and muscles and hair instead of electrical wires and circuit boards inside of them. Like a machine, they can be complex and sometimes hard to figure out. For example, they can sometimes confuse the enemy by making them think twice. Or maybe even make them go away. For instance, if a dad has a daughter, then the battleground lines are quickly drawn for the enemy who plans on dating Daddy’s Little Girl. Here are the 10 rules that all dads have encoded in their DNA.
RULES FOR DATING MY DAUGHTER 1. Get a job. 2. Understand, I don’t like you. 3. I’m everywhere. 4. You hurt her, I hurt you. 5. Be home 30 minute early. 6. Get a lawyer. 7. If you lie to me, I’ll find out. 8. She’s my princess, not your conquest. 9. I don’t mind going back to jail. 10. Whatever you do to her, I will do to you. Sometimes dads have an even shorter list with just one rule: “Before you date my daughter, know this – I’m a dad with a shotgun, a shovel, and a backyard.”
Instead of the above rules, dads will

These were real phone calls taken at real golf courses…
A. “Public Golf Course, May I help you?” Q. “What are your green fees? A. “$38” Q. “Does it include golf ?
A. “ABC Golf Course…can I help you?” Q. “I’m running late, can you still get me out early?” A. “Long Drive Golf Club…” Q. “How much to play golf Saturday?” A. “$50 per person includes cart.” Q. “$50 for the group?” A. ” No, $50 each.” Q. “Oh, so what are your green fees?” A. “ABC Golf Course…”
sometimes be more direct with their body language. My grandpa once threw a shotgun shell at his daughter’s date and said: “It moves a lot faster after 10 p.m.!”
Then again, rules completely change with Christian dads, who are always polite, subtle and, well, more Christian-like. All Christian dads talk differently than non-Christian dads. But, all Christian dads talk the same way to anyone wanting to date their daughter, such as: “Date my daughter? Of course. What time will you be picking us up?” Basically though, despite their various methods, attitudes, and actions, dads are all the same: they love us completely and will do all in their power to keep us safe and happy.
I quickly learned in school that Father’s Day has been around like, forever. According to my teacher, it started way back during the Middle Ages and then spread to almost every country on Earth. We Americans celebrate Father’s Day every third Sunday in June. But in other countries Father’s Day can fall during the months of May or even March.
I went to a regular public school but dad used to drive me and my older brother to Catechism classes on Saturday where we would learn religious things and also read from the Bible. I was extremely shy and never raised my hand in class. I judged the world around me by the things I learned from watching my dad. For instance, when my friend, Joey Masiewicz, joked that Moses wandered around the desert for 40 years because he was too stubborn to stop and ask for directions, I believed him. I thought the Moses joke was true
Q. “What’s the weather going to be like on Feb. 4th?
A. “Thanks for calling…may I help you?” Q. “Yes, I’d like to get a tee time tomorrow between 12:00 and noon.” A. “Between 12:00 and noon?” Q. “Yes” (I think I can squeeze you in.)
A. “Hello, Golf Course…” Q. “Yes, I need to get some information from you.”… “First, is this your correct phone number?” Q. “When can I call for a T time?” A. “We take T times 5 days in advance.” Q. “Is that for anybody?” Q. “I need some tees” A. “Would you like the long or the regular?” Q. “What’s the difference?” At the Food and Beverage counter… A. “Can I help you.” Q. “Yes, I’d like a large Coke no cup.
Q. “Are you very busy this afternoon?” A. “The course will be available after 3:30.” Q. “So if a two-some came out at 1:00 we could get on, right.”
Q. “What do you have around 10:40?” A. “I’ve got 10:48.” Q. “What’s your next time?” A. “10:56” Q. “We’d better take that one. It will be warmer then.”
because of the way my dad behaved. Whenever my dad would get lost in the car he always refused to stop at a gas station for directions which would make my mom extremely angry. The reason why all dads don’t like for someone else to give them directions when they get lost is (A) That person doesn’t know what he’s talking about and (B) all dads are, by nature, wanderers. According to scientists, dads wandered around jungles when they were cavemen looking for food and places to live. So, that gene still exists inside of them.
Rodney Dangerfield once said that his exasperated and nervous dad told him to stop running around in circles. When little Rodney said he couldn’t stop running in circles -- that’s when his dad nailed down Rodney’s other shoe.
That’s also the day I stopped talking to Jonathan Lieberman for at least a month of Sundays. When he said that it just made me plain angry and confused the hell outta me at the same time. I told dad what my friend Jonathan said and my dad just shook the paper he was reading and said, “Oh, that’s nice, Son.”
No question that dads are super smart, but, what confuses me is why they sometimes don’t have better listening skills.
I told my school friend Jonathan Lieberman that I have a lot of my dad’s genes. That’s when Jonathan said to me, “Really? I bet they don’t fit you.”
To tell you the truth, I’m not really sure dad was listening to me that day.
But, I do believe it’s just pure 100% science that dads just love to explore, and wander about, and that’s why they often get lost when driving in their cars.
Dads just love their cars. They use their cars for everything, even when playing. Rodney Dangerfield used to say that his dad would play tag with him – using the family car. And that would really scare Dangerfield, what with a car chasing behind him well, naturally, Rodney never wanted to get tagged.
Q. “What time do you have for a tee time tomorrow?” A. “What time would you like?” Q. “What times do you have?” A. “What time of the day?” Q. “Any time.” A. “In the morning?” Q. “Whenever.” A. “I’ve got 38 times available. Would you like me to read you all of them?” Q. “Naw…I don’t think those times are gonna work for me.” Q. “Can I get a tee time?” A. “Sure, what time would you like?” Q. “Tomorrow at 10:00.” “In the morning if possible.” Guy comes in the snack bar and asks… “What kind of meat comes in the Grilled Chicken Teriyaki Salad?” Q. “How much for range balls?” A. “$3 for about 40 shots.” Q. “Oh…so the balls are supplied?”
Q. “Do you have a twilight rate?” A. “Yes $22 at 1:00.” Q. “Oh, $22 at 1:00…what time does it start?” Lady walks in “My kids picked up these range balls from your range, do you want to buy them back?”
One night at Cheers, a TV Sitcom, Cliff Clavin said to his buddy, Norm Peterson: "Well, ya see, Norm, it's like this ... A herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo. And when the herd is hunt-
In true life, Rodney Dangerfield was very close to his dad who, in turn, was his greatest fan.
I’m fully aware that all dads are priceless and also the smartest people on any subject in the world. For example, dads teach us that human logic and reason separates us from the lower animals. And also – unlike cats and dogs – we’re not afraid of the vacuum cleaner.
For instance, I had heard about what happened at my friend Joey’s house. At dinnertime Joey asked his dad if bugs were good to eat. “Let’s not talk about such things at the dinner table, Son,” was his dad’s answer. After dinner was over, Joey’s dad asked, “Now, Son, what did you want to ask me?” That’s when pal Joey said, “Oh, nothing, Dad. There was just a bug in your soup, but now it’s gone.”
I’m not sure if that story is completely true or not, but, I do believe that dads don’t always have the best listening skills. That’s because they’re thinking of very advanced scientific things at the dinner table and smaller things are just not that important. Such as bugs.

ed, it is the slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first.
This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole, because the general speed and health of the whole group keeps improving by the regular killing of the weakest members. In much the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells.
Excessive intake of alcohol, as we know, kills brain cells. But, naturally, it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first.
In this way, regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. That's why you always feel smarter after a few beers". Brain Surgeon for Rent
By the time I was 14 I had studied Gray's Anatomy, Brain Surgery, and Advanced Anesthesia. I had performed 13 delicate brain surgeries by the time I was 15.
The fact that my patients were reluctant to undergo the surgery should not be held against me as I meant well. Had they been a bit more coopera-

Vista Soroptimists Raise Over $5,000 at Salad Luncheon Soroptimist International of Vista and North County Inland held its annual Salad Luncheon fundraiser recently at Grace Presbyterian Church in Vista. About 200 people attended at $15 per ticket. Over $5,000 was raised for the club’s service fund, to be distributed as grants and scholarships to qualifying women and charities. The luncheon featured salads made or donated by Soroptimist members, baked potatoes and toppings, hot and cold beverages and desserts. Local volunteers donning the Club’s signature “Best for Women” aprons to help serve the food included Lenna Wright from Congressman Darrell Issa’s office and Vista City Council members Amanda Rigby and Joe Green. Numerous gift baskets, donated by local businesses, were raffled off, and one lucky ticket holder won the coveted “Money Hat” decorated with over $200 in cash. Photos of the event are posted online at soropti-

Nonetheless, all dads are advanced thinkers. In fact, dads are mostly responsible for all the things you see around you, like television, computers, jet airplanes, automobiles, DVDs, cell phones, and Facebook. When our neighbor, Mr. Lieberman, asked his little girl, “Well, honey, how’d you like your first day in 4th grade today?” she answered, “Daddy, you can read all about it in my Facebook.” Then she trotted off to her room.
Yep, dads have sure changed the world around us; we communicate through Facebook and cell phones, almost entirely today. Nobody writes letters anymore, and some people say all life on the planet would suddenly end if cell phones were to instantly go away. Dad always said that we communicate differently than, say, in the 1930s, 40s, 50s, and even 60s.
Some dads are grandpas so they are known as senior dads and are just a different sort of dad. A lot of grandpas hate all these gadgets we have today. They remember the times when we had no cell phones, video games, or computers – and lived to tell about it.
Because a lot of senior dads remember the Great Depression when they were small they all learned to be super smart in saving money. For example, if it’s too expensive to have a brake job done on their car they’ll just ask the mechanic to make the car horn louder.
Grandpa dads remember the old black telephones without dials and when a live, lady operator would ask “Number, please?” and grandpa would say the telephone number, like: “Belmont 9-

4773, please.” Sometimes the phones came with a ‘party line’ on it, so grandpa dads could eavesdrop on their neighbors’ conversations if they were careful enough to pick up the phone quietly off the cradle. An occasional obscene phone call would come through and people would just learn to hang-up whenever they heard heavy breathing. Grandpa once hung up on Pastor Jones – but only because the honorable church pastor was asthmatic and grandpa mistook him for another obscene phone caller.
Also, tree-climbing was an art form back then in grandpa’s day along with tree houses, and fishing down at the creek and catching tadpoles in a jar. Even simple things, like saying prayer before eating with the entire family at the dinner table was important back then – not with family members split apart with some eating in their rooms, or in front of the TV set, or while playing video games in their rooms.
“What would you rather have, cell phones and Facebook, or a closer, more loving family and friends who actually communicate face-to-face?” grandpas often ask.
Back in the day, just the word “outside” was enough to overwhelm the senses of any boy who wished to run, jump, and follow wild adventures out in the clear fresh air – not locked for hours in a darkened room playing Dungeons and Dragon 12 hours a day as many kids do today.
My friend’s visiting grandpa dad from Iowa drove with us to the shopping mall recently when a car pulled up alongside of us at a stoplight. Grandpa dad looked over from his passenger seat and (actually) saw 5 people in the car next to us – all of whom were talk-
Delivering Literacy to Elementary Schools - As part of its ongoing literacy and education project, The Woman's Club of Vista donated 200 books to each of three schools recently. Member Alice Reule and her husband Jack delivered boxes full of books to Maryland, Hannalei, and Monte Vista Elementary Schools. Lisa Bowser, Librarian for Monte Vista, shared, "Thank you for those wonderful books. Our kids are going to be thrilled!" Collecting the books has been a year-long effort for President Nancy B. Jones, incoming President Judy Pantazo, and Parliamentarian Lori Sanna. Member donations are supplemented by new “First Books” purchased by the Club. The Woman’s Club of Vista meets the second Wednesday of the month at the Shadowridge Golf Club in Vista for a luncheon meeting. Cost for non-members is $18. All are welcome.

ing on their cell phones or texting, including the driver, while waiting for the light to turn green.
My friend’s grandpa turned to us and only said four tiny words: “I rest my case.”
Senior dads swear that today’s generation is a lost one. They still remember the smell of fresh cut grass in the summertime, and the lemonade stands, and pulling girls’ pigtails – especially the girls they had a crush on. More drastically, in class they would dip the pigtails of the girl sitting in front of them in the ink wells, which were on all the desks back then.
A lot of dads agree with grandpa dads that today’s generation is a lost one. I’ve heard my own dad say so, many a time. “They don’t even know how to use a hammer, let alone fix anything!” he would often say.
I just read in the newspaper that even in England researchers found that today’s generation is unable to fix simple things like the older generation did. The British professor who researched the article said we live in a ‘disposable’ world; a world of gadgets and appliances that the under 40s generation cannot fix because they just expect everything to ‘just work.’ The article said young people today “just chuck out their faulty appliances and buy new ones.” Dad often said our world has advanced, but humans have not kept pace.
Even dad said today’s technology has given us much . . . but it also has taken much away from us. It can be a cruel give-and-take world.

Hmm, that’s a bit scary. A lot of people choose not to talk about such things. It makes them feel a bit uncomfortable with the facts. It’s just best to leave sleeping dogs lie.
But dads are vigilant. Like Paul Revere, they keep watch over us. Dads have long warned us that we have lost our communication skills because of cell phones, computers and Facebook, plus we’ve been brought up to have zillions of television channels, plus the remote. Senior dads claim that the remote is what makes us impatient and causes us to ‘channel surf.’
Some things are hard to swallow, though. For example, dad swears that grandpa once had a strange device called ‘rabbit ears’ that he put on top of his old black-and-white television set and he’d just move ‘em around a bit for better reception. And if that story doesn’t take the cake, well, grandpa also said he only had three TV channels to choose from 6, 8, and 10. That’s it. I know it sounds all made up, but, they further claim that there was no TV ‘remote control’ back then to change the channels. Hmm, I think dad and grandpa are pouring it on a little thick now, don’t you think?
Can you imagine how funny that image is in our brain right now? That you have to actually get up out of a warm soft sofa each and every time you wanted to change the television channel. Anyway, dad swears on a Bible that it

The Paper • Page 4 • June 15, 2017 Burglary Suspect Apprehended
On Saturday, June 10th at 4:50 p.m., a Police Officer for the City of Carlsbad Police Department was in the 4500 block of Cove Drive investigating an unrelated incident when she was flagged down by a citizen who stated he’d just interrupted a subject trying to break into a home. The citizen stated that a male subject was attempting to break into his home through a window and fled after a brief physical altercation with the citizen. The male fled the area and entered a nearby residence where he subsequently barricaded himself into the attic of that residence. Officers responded and established a perimeter around the home where the male entered and hid. Officers searched the home and with the assistance of San Diego Sheriff ’s ASTREA helicopter they located the male hiding in the attic of the residence. The male was identified as Kai Sells from Carlsbad, a 38 year old white male. He was arrested for a felony violation of attempted burglary, burglary and misdemeanor violation, vandalism and battery. He was subsequently booked into the Vista Detention Facility for the above mentioned charges. Stolen Vehicle Pursuit, Traffic Collision
On Sunday, June 11, at 11:46 p.m., a City of Carlsbad police officer initiated a traffic stop in the area of Poinsettia Lane and Avenida Encinas on a Dodge SUV for a vehicle code violation. Once the officer activated his overhead lights, the suspect vehicle, occupied by three individuals, immediately fled the area. The officer pursued the vehicle Northbound on Avenida Encinas. During the pursuit, the driver of the SUV committed several other dangerous moving violations. The

I like visionaries.
They are what makes things happen. What makes things progress.
Most of the successful people I know are visionaries. Individuals who have an idea, a vision, and they work to make the vision a reality.
People like former Escondido Mayor, Alan Skuba, who bought a small, nondescript radio station and built it into a powerhouse North County station (KOWN) - who went on to buy and build several other businesses.
People like Arie DeJong, who came to America almost penniless . . . who helpted to start Hollandia Dairy, worked hard to make a lot of new customers, then bought more and more businesses, each of which became a resounding success. He saw potential in somethng others didn’t . . . and he made things happen. Big time.
driver of the SUV eventually jumped out of the vehicle while it was still in motion, and then fled the scene on foot. The SUV continued to move forward for a short distance before colliding with a chain-link fence in the 4900 block of Avenida Encinas. The remaining passengers of the vehicle, a male and female adult, were detained at the scene. Officers determined the male passenger, Ruben Jimenez (20), was on Post Release Community Supervision (“PRCS”) pursuant to AB109, and was subsequently arrested and booked at Vista Detention Facility for violating the conditions of his supervision. The female adult was released from the scene. Carlsbad Police Officers, assisted by the Oceanside Police K9 Unit and Sheriff ’s Air Support, searched the area for the driver with negative results.
Rincon Band of Luiseno Indians Pledge $300,000 for Palomar Medical Center Ermergency Department
The Rincon Band of Luiseno Indians pledged $300,000 to help build out the Emergency Department at Palomar Medical Center in Escondido, the hospital has announced.
Funding for the Palomar Health Foundation will pay for new patient treatment rooms that include state-ofthe-art medical beds, monitors, technology and lifesaving equipment, along with additional clinical support space, hospital officials said. The project will fill in a shell that was built for the new space during construction of the hospital roughly five years ago. “When considering how to make our donations meaningful to the North County, we wanted to make an investment that benefits as many people as possible,” said Bo Mazzetti, Rincon
Larry Benson bought a small, struggling shop that sold Indian art, memorabilita, artifacts, clothing . . . and built that small Indian Shop into a new and impressive Indian Store in Vista, now occupying 4000 square feet - all decorated in a broad variety of authentic Indian apparel, supplies, art work, books, gems, blankets . . . he has truly built a monument to our Native Americans . . . and puts on a compelling show each and every day you visit. (I can remember when the Calac family owned a very small Indian Store in the old Escondido Mall ... in the 1970’s). Visionaries are not easily deterred.

And rebuild he did - it took a few years what with permitting and wrestling with the insurance companies on proper settlements for the earlier fire . . . and today he’s the proud owner of J&M Restaurant, 1215 E. Valley Parkway. Business there is humming right along with a great staff, superb food, and more than reasonable prices.
chairman. “A contribution to meet increased emergency capacity at Palomar Medical Center Escondido was an obvious solution because at some time almost everyone is likely to need emergency care either for themselves or for family.”
Rincon members receive care at the hospital, he said.
According to Dr. Jaime Rivas, emergency services medical director at Palomar Health, the emergency department sees an average of about 300 patients per day, a number he expects to climb in the future. The emergency department has 52 beds, which will climb by 14 when the work is completed by the end of this year. “One of the many benefits from the increased capacity will be to allow the entire treatment team to better experience the joy of medicine,” Rivas said. “Happier doctors will translate to better care and overall satisfaction for patients.”
The expansion will also reduce wait times, he said. When the department opened five years ago, hospital officials expected to serve about 60,000 patients annually. The actual number has been over 100,000.
As North County's only trauma center, Palomar Medical Center treats victims of car accidents, heart attacks, strokes, snake bites, head injuries, and the like. The Rincon contribution will be made over three years, with installments of $100,000 contributed annually, reported Palomar Health.

In the past decade, more than 230 municipalities around the nation have passed bans of varying degrees on sales of dogs and cats raised at for-profit facilities. More than two-thirds of those regulations have come in the past two and half years. California has more than 33 cities with these ordinances, from South Lake Tahoe in 2009 to Oceanside in 2015, to Los Angeles in 2016, to San Francisco and Sacramento this year.
Most of these rules allow storefronts to sell animals acquired from shelters, rescue groups and nonprofits. In practice, many of the targeted pet-store merchants have gone out of business or been forced to move locations. Supporters said the bans are a local reaction to breeders, mostly located in the Midwest, who warehouse dogs and cats like livestock. They said too often, animals, especially breeding mothers, are locked in unsanitary and inhumane conditions without proper access to medicine, exercise and contact with people.
There are roughly 10,000 commercial breeders of dogs and cats in the country, according to a California legislative analysis. Fewer than 2,000 breeding facilities are licensed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
If the current bill in Sacramento becomes law, these operations would no longer be allowed to sell to pet stores in California. Instead, storefronts would need to get their dogs, cats and rabbits only from shelters, adoption centers or animal-control agencies.

Men who run out of shaving cream. It happens. You have a week’s worth of stubble, a job interview in two hours, you’re out of shave cream and you’re casting about for alternatives. The most important piece of advice we can give here is this: Do not be tempted to try the soap. Soap is designed to remove dirt from your body and does not provide any lubrication or moisturizing properties. The result is that your skin will feel dry after shaving, possibly causing irritation.”

So what’s the better option? Your best bet is actually hair conditioner. You want a product that has skin and hair softening properties, so you get a comfortable shave in place of your shaving product.

Dad’s - Unsung Heroes! Cont. from Page 3
was true when he and grandpa were growing up.
Whatever. I’m not that gullible. I may have been born at night, but not last night.
I’m not sure grandpa wasn’t just exaggerating or just plain making-things-up just to get a reaction out of us. But, he seemed to always keep a straight face when spinning such tales. I’ve got to give him credit for keeping a poker face. It is true that dads back then thought a lot different than dads today. Their sense of value was galaxies apart from dads today.
Lemme give you a real true-life example. Dad left me with grandpa Marshall one day to babysit me for the afternoon. Well, grandpa Marshall was a nervous sort and didn’t like a lot of hustle and bustle around him so I, obviously, made him plenty nervous. Finally, he got a hold of me and said, “Now listen here, boy, I want you to settle down and quit running and jumping all over the damned place!”
I knew grandpa Marshall was loaded with money so I struck a deal: “Grandpa, I’ll be a good boy for a dollar.” That’s when grandpa’s eyes widened like a cue ball and he opened his mouth and after a couple seconds of stunned silence he said: “Now you listen here . . . I shouldn’t have to pay you anything to be a good boy. Why, when I was your age I was good for nothing!” Well, I know that is an oft-repeated joke, but, I swear that same version of
life played out between my grandpa Marshall and me. I told my dad what happened later on and my dad just laughed his head off. I had to promise to never tell grandpa how hard dad laughed that day. I loved my grandpa Marshall, but being a nervous sort that he was he sometimes said things that greatly confused me. Once when I was about 6 years old grandpa caught me by the arm and said, “You need to settle down . . . now! Act your own age for crying out loud!”
At the time I thought I (was) acting my age, but I never said anything because at the time grandpa was talking to me through clenched teeth and I could barely understand him when he did that. To be honest, I don’t think he liked to babysit me much. I remember when grandpa Marshall would reach the end of his rope he’d say, “Stop! Just stop! You need to learn to be more mature! Why, when I was your age I was a lot younger than you, and a lot more responsible!”
I noticed grandpa learned to drink more whenever he had to babysit me. Speaking of drinking, when my favorite comedian Jeff Dunham (who is also a dad), asked his friend if he had a drinking problem his friend said, “Nope, I think I got it figured out.” Well, in the same way, dads have figured out moms and how to understand their commands. You see, moms don’t always ‘tell’ dads what they ought to do, moms instead ask indirect questions – which dads are SUPPOSED to understand the real hidden command. For instance, moms never tell dads to pick up after themselves, such as pick up your shoes, or don’t leave the bath towel on the floor – oh, no – that would
be too direct for dad. Instead, moms will quietly and gently ask dad a simple question which dad fully understands. Once, mom quietly picked up a pair of my dad’s Fruit of the Loom underwear from the floor and slowly turned to face dad and – while delicately holding his underwear between her two tiny fingers – mom slowly asked: “Are these yours?” Immediately, dad decoded this question as a direct command that he had to immediately attend to and sprung into action. In this way, dads are welltrained by moms. Moms speak in their own lingo so dads have to pay close attention to actually decode what moms are REALLY saying to them. Here’s a list of code words which moms use a lot, along with the real meaning behind them.
1. “Fine.” This is a code word that moms use to end an argument when they are right and dads need to shut up or else. All living dads know this. 2. “Five Minutes.” If mom is getting dressed, five minutes means 45 minutes to an hour. All dads know this because it’s the same thing when dads say: “I’m on my way.” 3. “Go Ahead.” This is actually a dare, not permission to do something. All dads know this code. It is dangerous to actually ‘go ahead’ and do it. 4. “A Loud Sigh.” This noise which moms make is really telling dad that he is an absolute, drooling idiot and needs to be put on medication or put on a straitjacket. Dads know this sound. 5. “Don’t Worry About It.” This is a very dangerous phrase for all dads. It is mom’s way of telling dad not to worry about it because right now she needs time to think long and hard in deciding how dad is going to pay for this later on.
Through thick and thin, through all ups-and-downs in life, dad will always be there for us. They may not all be perfect, but their love for us often is.
Father’s Day is only once a year, but, rarely do we thank dads for everydaythings we take for granted. When I was in high school I wrote this down: “Thanks Dad, for putting food on our table, and giving us a place we can call home. And Dad, thanks for working so hard to pay all the bills and giving me lunch money, besides. And even though you were tired, Dad, you worked overtime to be able to send me to summer camp with all the other kids. And Dad, you even secretly saved to buy me that bicycle for my 12th birthday which you hid from me in the garage to surprise me. It made me cry in front of all my friends. But I didn’t care, Dad, cause I loved you too much to hide it or keep myself from leaping into your arms and hugging you for the longest time. Other dads were there and you swore you got a gnat in your eye cause they teared up and you wiped them dry. Dad, you even loved me more than you told me – but, you sure showed me.”
Happy Father’s Day to all dads, everywhere. We love and cherish you 364 days out of the year. Like mom, you are God-sent.

"Kay passed away at 7 this morning . . ."
That's the message I got from Scott, my eldest son, who called me, in tears, at about noon today.
The Kay he was referring to was Kay Calland, one of the most beautiful, most caring, most loving women I have ever known. I knew she was under hospice care but, even so, it came as a shock. I asked Scott how mom was doing. "She's a basket case," he wept. "I'll be right over," I said.
In 10 minutes I was at the home of my ex-wife, Mary. She and Scott and I held each other and had a good cry. We were all hurting . . . all feeling the same sense of loss at Kay's passing. Even after our divorce, Kay and Mary had remained good friends, talking on the phone daily. Kay would often call me as well . . . and she always sent a birthday card a day or two before my birthday. Mary would keep me posted on Kay's condition . . . for Mary and I had also remained very close friends, in spite of the divorce. The three of us all had a good cry . . . and a few laughs, and then we'd cry some more. We remembered the happy times with Kay . . . how she could cheer each of us up so easily. We recalled how she never spoke ill of anyone. Not one single soul did I ever hear Kay speak badly about.
I was privileged to have had Kay as my secretary when I managed KOWN Radio in Escondido, California from 1970-1977. Kay was that rare breed of person who always thought positive, always spoke positive, was always bright, bubbly, always smiling . . . and never complained. She should have had her own Public Relations Agency, she was that good at making people feel great.
On those rare occasions when I would come into the office with my Mr. Grumpy Face on . . . perhaps I had a squabble with my wife that morning . . . perhaps someone cut me off at an intersection . . or for whatever reason, if I was in a bad mood, Kay would fix that right quick. She'd have a cup of coffee on my desk, and chat with me. Within five minutes everything was all better and she had me smiling, if not laughing. After I left KOWN, Kay and stayed in touch. Ours was much more than an employer/employee relationship. She was my friend. My dear friend. We were pals. Close pals. Kay developed severe rheumatoid arthritis and it got progressively worse over the years. More and more pain, more and more her body became contorted. In all the years
she suffered from this painful malady I never heard her complain. Not once.
For the past year she was on a morphine drip. She didn't make a big deal about it. It was simply a medical procedure. When I'd ask her how she was feeling she'd say . . . "I'm doing just fine. I have some good days and some bad days, but today's a good day." She would say that, of course, even if she was having a bad day.
Because I knew how much pain she was in I didn't call her as often as I would like to have. I didn't want to be a burden to her . . . calling her on one of her bad days . . . and I knew she would never tell me if she was having a bad day. Her loving and caring husband, Gary, took care of Kay all those years. Sometimes, Mary would come over and spend a couple of days with Kay so Gary could get a break and get away from being the constant caregiver. There is an immense amount of pressure on a caregiver, often more than that of the patient. And Gary never once complained. Kay was his wife and he was going to take care of her and that was that. And he did. Magnificently.

The Turning Point of the Pacific War With Japan
If you’ve studied World War II, especially the Pacific War with the Japanese Empire, you’ll know that six months after Pearl Harbor was attacked, the United States Navy had the Japanese navy on the run by winning one of the giant naval battles in history: The Battle of Midway, which lasted June 4 through 7, 1942.
So, there are a lot of us that knew and loved Kay who are a bit down in the dumps now. Of course we are all relieved that Kay no longer has to suffer the tormenting pain she endured - but still, we know we had someone very precious in our lives, that each of us is richer for it . . . and we also know she's no longer with us. That's what hurts.
"Kay passed away at 7 this morning . . ." Editor’s Note: I wrote this piece seven years ago, on the day that Kay left us. We all still miss this very precious person. And we remember her with great affection.

Midway took place one month after the Battle of the Coral Sea, which was a crushing defeat for the U.S. The island of Midway is a small coral atoll approximately one mile long and a half-mile wide at the extreme northern end of the Hawaiian Island chain. Midway was a U.S.Navy outpost with a handful of sailors and Marines defending it. Adm. Chester Nimitz sent a task force from Pearl Harbor to intercept the Japanese fleet heading for Midway. The Navy decisively defeated the Japanese fleet under the command of Adm. Isoroku Yamamoto, inflicting devastating damage that proved irreparable The battle has been called "the most stunning and decisive blow in the history of naval warfare."
Luring the American aircraft carriers into a trap and occupying Midway was part of an overall strategy to extend Japan's defensive perimeter. Yamamoto's primary goal was the elimination of America's carrier forces, which he regarded as the principal threat to the overall Pacific campaign. This concern was acutely heightened by the Doolittle Raid on 18 April 1942, in which 16 U.S. Army Air Forces B25 Mitchell bombers launched from USS Hornet, bombed targets in Tokyo and several other Japanese cities. The raid was a shock to the Japanese and showed the existence of a gap in the defenses around the Japanese home islands as well as the accessibility of Japanese territory to American bombers. Yamamoto selected Midway approximately 1,300 milesfrom Honolulu. This meant Midway was outside the
effective range of almost all of the American aircraft stationed on the main Hawaiian islands. Midway was not especially important in the larger scheme of Japan's intentions, but the Japanese felt the Americans would consider Midway a vital outpost of Pearl Harbor and would therefore be compelled to defend it vigorously. In addition to serving as a seaplane base, Midway's airstrips also served as a forward staging point for bomber attacks on Wake Island, another Navy atoll outpost lost to the Japanese. Wake had been one of the Pacific “stepping stones” used by the Navy and Pan American Airways as a refueling stop for their Clipper seaplanes. Yamamoto's battle plan was predicated on optimistic intelligence suggesting that aircraft carriers USS Enterprise and USS Hornet were the only carriers available to the U.S. Pacific Fleet. During the Battle of the Coral Sea one month earlier, USS Lexington had been sunk and USS Yorktown damaged so severely the Japanese believed she, too, had been lost. However, following hasty repairs at Pearl Harbor, Yorktown would go on to play a critical role in the discovery and eventual destruction of the Japanese fleet carriers north of Midway. Finally, much of Yamamoto's planning was based on a gross misjudgment of American morale, which was believed to be debilitated from the Pearl Harbor attack and the string of Japanese victories across the Pacific.
What Yamamoto did not know was the U.S. had broken the main Japanese naval code, divulging details of his plan. Despite the fact Japanese carriers were expected to carry out air strikes against Midway and bear the brunt of American counterattacks, the only warships in his fleet larger than the screening force of 12 destroyers were two fast battleships, two heavy cruisers, and one light cruiser. By contrast, Yamamoto and Admiral Kondo had between them two light carriers, five battleships, four heavy cruisers, and two light cruisers, none of which would see action at Midway. The distance between Yamamoto and Kondo's trailing back-up forces and Nagumo's attack carriers had grave implications during the battle: the invaluable reconnaissance capability of the scout planes carried by the cruisers and carriers, (this was a time before radar). as well as the additional antiaircraft capability of the cruisers and the other two battleships in the trailing forces, was denied to the Japanese carriers.
There were seven aircraft carriers involved in the battle and all four of Japan's large aircraft carriers and a heavy cruiser were sunk. The U.S. lost only the carrier USS Yorktown and a destroyer. After Midway and the exhausting attrition of the Solomon Islands campaign, Japan's capacity to replace its losses in materiel (particularly aircraft carriers) and men (especially well-trained pilots) rapidly became insufficient to cope with mounting casualties, while the United States' massive industrial and training capabilities made losses far easier to replace. The Battle of Midway, along with the Guadalcanal Campaign, is widely considered a turning point in the Pacific War. Tom Morrow's books are available at Amazon.com in soft-cover or via Kindle E-mail.

It is generally accepted that participating in team sports helps kids develop life skills like responsibility, respect, commitment and collaboration. Parents that recognize this value forego free evenings and weekends to chauffer their kids from practice to games and tournaments. The kids, and parents, that stick with it eventually make it to elite teams where athletic skills are fine-tuned and competition is more intense. If you follow baseball, you know this means

Pastor Sam Brumit Mission 316 Church, San Marcos
Carl, an 8-month-old American mix guinea pig, is looking for a new home! He was brought in by his previous owner after he wasn’t very social with their other pig, so we think he definitely prefers the bachelor life. But who can blame him? Carl is a no-fuss, no-muss kind of pig who prefers to do his own thing without too much responsibility. He’s not used to be handled too much, so a patient family who will help him to be more brave and social would be fantastic! Offer him some fresh veggies and he’ll be yours forever! Carl is available for adoption at the San Diego Humane Society’s Escondido Campus at 3450 E Valley Parkway. To learn more about making him part of your family, please call (760) 888-2275.

The Friendship Test
Today the word friend doesn’t mean what it used to. Given the power of social media, we can have thousands of friends and with the click of a mouse, we can “friend” or “unfriend” virtually anyone we chose.
Biblically speaking, friendship takes on deeper meaning. Friendship includes unselfishness, sacrifice, and it seeks to love in a way that looks out for the good of others more than one’s self. It seeks to serve rather than to be served. Here are a few questions to test the quality of your friendships: 1. How much time are you willing to give a friend? Someone said love is spelt TIME. You can’t build strong friendships without investing
Email them to: email@example.com
lots of time. 2. How open are you willing to be? It’s only when you open up your life and heart that you allow others to know you. Being transparent and letting others see you as you are helps build lasting friendships. 3. Do you lift up the other person? Friendship means encouragement and it’s essential to build up others. Praying for the other person is a great way to deepen the friendship. 4. How much does it cost you? When a friend wants or needs something from you, are you willing to go out of your comfort zone for them? 5. Are you willing to forgive? Inevitably, there will be times when friendship requires you to forgive the other person. This is not always easy, but it’s worth it. 6. Are you there in the tough times? Scripture says “Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one's life for one's friends.” John 15:13 Jesus is the greatest friend a person can have. He sticks closer than a brother.
[If you don’t have a church home, join Mission 316(where friendships are important) on Sundays at 10 AM at the Civic Center in San Marcos directly across from the Library].

Safe grilling tips will help everyone have a safe summer
Warm weather means outdoor grilling, bringing families and friends together for fun, sun and good food. It is also important to be mindful of safe grilling practices to prevent fires and accidental injuries. Follow these simple grilling tips to help everyone have a safe summer. • Clean your grill after each use. This will remove grease that can start a fire.
• Only use your grill outside. Keep it away from siding and deck rails. • Open your gas grill before lighting • Keep a 3-foot safe zone around your grill. This will keep kids and pets safe. • Keep an eye on your grill, fire pit or patio torches. Never leave any of them unattended. • Place the coals from your grill in a metal can with a lid once they have cooled. Stay fire safe this summer!

"one stop shopping"
By the time I reached age 16 I decided to abandon, temporarily at least, brain surgery.
Open most days but call to confirm we're here. We may decide to go fishing.
tive I'm sure some of them might have even survived the surgery.
I took up a new profession as parttime Christmas Tree flocker. It is seasonal.
I am considering a return to the profession of brain surgeon and have been scouting readers of The Paper for likely candidates. Thus far, only a select few have qualified as (a) having brains, and (b) needed attention to the brain area. If you are having troubling, negative thoughts and would like a really nice and gentle brain surgeon, please contact me. We may be able to eliminate those troubling, negative thoughts. Brain surgery normally only lasts about 15 minutes, maybe a half hour, depending upon which time zone in which the operating theatre is located.
As you know, I also studied anesthesia and, most times, am able to anesthetize my patients to the point where they hardly ever feel much discomfort. This message brought to you as a public service by: lyle's brain surgery, bait shop and used tire emporium

Has the Computer Factory opened its doors to Apple? Long time readers know that we have always snickered and made impolite jokes about the “Apple Fanbois” cult. Aside from the serious graphics artists who actually earn a living with their “Macs” and the retired school teachers who have never known anything but Apple, we have typically characterized “Appleheads” as prancing dilettantes slavishly devoted to any piece of electronics sporting a bitten Apple and carrying dog-eared wallet pictures of Steve Jobs.

Derek informed me that lots of normal, intelligent people have iPhones. While only 7% of computer users have Apple computers, nearly 40% of American smart phone users have Apple iPhones and the vast majority of them have Windows PCs just like normal people. Derek went on to say that while it was probably a good idea to avoid contact with the Apple Macintosh types, we should welcome iPhone user with open arms because they are good people. Derek suggested that we could even expand our service to include battery and broken glass replacements for iPhones. The more we thought about it the more sense it made. We had wrongly assumed that iPhone users were the same as those unpleasant and difficult “Fanbois.” So starting this week we are welcoming iPhone users to bring their broken screens and dying batteries to us for repair.

CITY OF SAN MARCOS AMENDMENT TO THE CITY OF SAN MARCOS TRANSNET LOCAL STREET IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM OF PROJECTS
NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that on June 27, 2017 a public hearing will be held with respect to the City of San Marcos amending projects in the 2016 Regional Transportation Improvement Program (RTIP). San Diego Association of Governments (SANDAG), as the Metropolitan Planning Organization and the Regional Transportation Planning Agency, is required by state and federal laws to develop and adopt a Regional Transportation Improvement Program (RTIP). The RTIP is a multi-billion dollar, multiyear program of proposed projects for major transportation projects in the San Diego Region. Transportation projects funded with federal, state, TransNet, and the San Diego transportation sales tax program must be included in an approved RTIP. The RTIP covers five fiscal years and incrementally implements San Diego Forward: The Regional Plan, the long-range transportation plan for the San Diego region. The current Regional Plan was approved by the SANDAG Board of Directors at its meeting on October 9, 2015. On September 23, 2016, the SANDAG Board of Directors adopted the final 2016 RTIP. The City of San Marcos recommends programming the 2016 RTIP projects that are necessary to be amended as they are either regionally significant, capacity increasing projects or are projects that are being recommended for TransNet revenues. All projects programmed with TransNet funds meet all the requirements of the TransNet Extension Ordinance and accommodate travel for pedestrians and bicyclists. A complete list of the amendment is available for public review at Development Services Front Desk at City Hall, 1 Civic Center Drive, San Marcos, CA. Interested persons wishing to express their views will also be given an opportunity to do so at the public hearing, commencing at 6:00 p.m., or as soon thereafter as the matter can be heard, and will be held at 1 Civic Center Drive in the Council Chambers, San Marcos, California. Written comments prior to the time of the hearing can be submitted to City of San Marcos, 1 Civic Center Drive, San Marcos, CA 92069, Attention: Samantha Byfield, Management Analyst. s/s Matt Little, Deputy City Manager & Public Works Director Phil Scollick, City Clerk, City of San Marcos Dp June 15, 2017 FICTITIOUS BUSINESS NAME STATEMENT
