Tracking one of California’s most famous stage coach drivers proved to be a fascinating assignment. His name was Charley Darkey Parkhurst. Near as we can figure, he was born in 1812 in Sharon, Vermont. Mother was Mary Morehouse Parkhurst, apparently born out of wedlock, the father was unknown. He had two siblings, Charles born in 1811 who died in 1813 and Maria born in 1810. Their mother Mary died in 1812. Charley and Maria were sent to an orphanage in Lebanon, New Hampshire.
In 1824 at age 12 Charley ran away from the orphanage, escaping in boys clothing. He became a a stable boy for Ebenezer Balch in Worecester, Vermont. Balch, the owner of a livery stable in Rhode Island, took him in as his own son. Balch taught the young child to ride horses and drive wagon teams giving him the skills needed to later drive stagecoaches throughout California. Charley was taught to drive a coach, first with one, then four, and eventually six horses. Charley worked for Balch for several years. He quickly mastered the profession and made the perilous long journey all the way across the country to work as a whip (the term then for a stagecoach driver) on the Pacific Coast.
Over the ensuing years, he earned a hallmark reputation driving a six-up (a six horse team) in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Georgia, and California during the gold rush era. He not only learned how to drive a team, he learned to smoke, chew, and drink. Eventually, he wound up in the gold fields like all men of that era, arriving around 1852 and drove stages for the California Stage Lines until 1855.
Western stagecoach companies were big business in the latter half of the 19th century. In addition to passengers and freight, stages hauled gold and silver bullion as well as mining company payrolls. Stage robbery was a constant danger and bandits employed many strategies to ambush a stagecoach. Thieves rarely met with much resistance from stage drivers, since they had passenger safety foremost in mind. The gang was usually after the Wells Fargo money box with its valuable contents. Passengers were seldom hurt, but they were certainly relieved of their cash, watches and jewelry. Before the completion of the transcontinental railroad over Donner Pass in 1868, the only transportation through the Sierra was by stage. Rugged teamsters held rein over six wild-eyed horses as they tore along the precipitous mountain trails. The stagecoaches were driven by skilled and fearless men who pushed themselves and their spirited horses to the limit. One-Eyed, Bandit-Shootin’ Charley

The Legendary Charley Darkey Parkhurst 1850, he fit right in with the other rough and tough drivers. Known as “One-eyed Charley,” he wore a black patch over his left eye, lost when attempting to shoe a horse. His lips were stained from constant tobacco chewing and as the years wore on he talked less and less earning him another nickname, Silent Charley. When Parkhurst did speak, he didn’t hesitate to sling around swear words in a gruff voice. The only part of his appearance that was out of place was his cleanshaven face, an odd choice for a man in those days. Parkhurst proved himself in California not only in skill with a team of up to six horses but in handling bandits. A bandit

called “Sugarfoot” and his crew held up Parkhurst’s stagecoach and forced him to hand over the wagon’s strong box (used to hold all of the passenger’s valuables). He calmly acquiesced while keeping all his passengers safe, but before they left, he warned the robbers that he’d “break even with them.” Sugarfoot unwisely stopped his stagecoach again, and this time, Parkhurst shot him dead. As the story goes, Sugarfoot crawled back to a miner’s cabin and, before he died, told the miners he’d been shot by the famous driver, One-eyed Charley.
In appreciation of his bravery, Wells Fargo presented Parkhurst with a large watch and chain made of solid gold. Charley became a member of the western community, even joining the all male IOOF (International Order of Odd Fellows).
He spent 15 years running stages, sometimes partnering with Hank Monk, the celebrated driver from Carson City. Over the years, Pankhurst’s reputation as an expert whip grew. From 20 feet away he could slice open the end of an envelope or cut a cigar out of a man’s mouth. Parkhurst smoked cigars, chewed wads of tobacco, drank with the best of them, and exuded supreme confidence behind the reins. His judgment was sound and pleasant manners won him many friends.
One afternoon as Charley drove down from Carson Pass the lead horses veered off the road and a wrenching jolt threw him from the rig. He hung on

demanding job of driving and he opened his own stage station. He later sold the business and retired to a ranch near Soquel, Calif. The years slipped by and Charley died on Dec. 29, 1879, at the age of 67.
When death overtook Charley many long-time friends and acquaintances were astounded to learn the tough old stage-driver was a well-endowed woman who had given birth at some point in her life.
A few days later, the Sacramento Daily Bee published his obituary. It read; “On Sunday last, there died a person known as Charley Parkhurst, aged 67, who was well-known to old residents as a stage driver. He was in early days accounted one of the most expert manipulators of the reins who ever sat on the box of a coach. It was discovered when friendly hands were preparing him for his final rest, that Charley Parkhurst was unmistakably a welldeveloped woman!” His reasons for choosing this lifestyle are unknown, but we can safely assume that Parkhurst would never have become a famous stagecoach driver as a woman. You can visit his grave today at the Pioneer Cemetery at 44 Main Street in Watsonville, California. NOT LIKE OTHER MEN, ER, WOMEN?
Once it was discovered that Charley was a woman, there were plenty of people to say they had always thought he wasn’t like other men. Even though he wore leather gloves summer and winter, many noticed that his hands

were small and smooth. He slept in the stables with his beloved horses and was never known to have had a girlfriend. Charley never volunteered clues to her past. Loose fitting clothing hid her femininity and after a horse kicked her, an eye patch over one eye helped conceal her face. She weighed 175 pounds, could handle herself in a fistfight and drank whiskey like one of the boys. It turns out that Charley’s real name was Charlotte Parkhurst. After Charlotte ran away from the orphanage she soon discovered that life in the working world was easier for men. So she decided to masquerade as one for the rest of her life. The rest is history. Well, almost. There is one last thing. First Woman to Vote in America
Parkhurst took advantage of his disguise in other ways. On November 3, 1868, Charlotte Parkhurst cast her vote in the national election, dressed as a man. She became the first woman to vote in the United States, 52 years before Congress passed the 19th amendment giving American women the right to vote.
In 1868, Parkhurst registered to vote. Although Parkhurst’s name is recorded on the official poll list for the election of 1868, it is unknown whether he actually cast his ballot. Still, there is a plaque at his grave, as well as at the Soquel Fire Station and Soquel Post Office, that commemorates him as the first woman to vote in the United States of America. Somewhere along the line she got pregnant, went to the southern portion of the state and after the child died at birth she then settled in Santa Cruz

County. It was in Redwood City that a horse kicked her in the face while shoeing it, causing the loss of her eye. She wore a patch and was known as "Oneeye Charley" or "Cock-eyed Charley" from then on.
For most of her life no one really noticed this "servant of the public" going about her duties as befitted a common folk. So her story wasn't worth knowing until she died and the "truth" demoralized a populace. It was just not proper. With this discovery, Charlie became the most famous driver in California and with all they could discover about her, which in actual documentation only went back to 1868, created another "Legend" which has crept up on her as it will and the facts are mixed in where "needed," but that's what makes this story worth the telling. The tales told of Charley grew after each telling. So many knew her "when" and told their experiences with her as "their" driver: She did good deeds, helped women in child birth, set broken bones, donated money to needy causes and kissed babies! She was everything to everyone and legend has it she sent Black Bart away empty handed and was the reason he never rode a horse; after filling his butt with buckshot! Why Charley always had a brace of pistols stuck in his belt, with his large Texas hat and dark blue, embroidered gloves and those blue/gray eyes that seemed gentle ... and so it all went ... right up to the 1970's when folk used her memory for female causes.

spooking the horses made that narrow strip of dirt road a hazard at every turn. According to "first hand" accounts by Major A. N. Judd, whose recollections of Charley Parkhurst appeared in the Santa Cruz Surf on October 18, 1917 said she was driving teams a long while and dressed in "a muffler, gloves, greatcoat of buffalo hide, and a cap of the same material. Under this she wore blue jeans turned up to reveal the cuffs of a very good pair of trousers." (Blue Jeans were like cover-alls and would protect the finer wool trousers folk preferred to be seen in. Charlie was bulking up for warmth and concealment!) Major Judd's account adds to her "romanticized legend": "I suppose that here I should make a distinction between the Sioux, Blackfeet and others in the East, and the Indians that infested the western slopes of the Sierra, for they all had their fling at Charley Parkhurst. "Old Ben Holiday was the moving spirit in the overland stage line. He had his office at Council Bluffs, Iowa. Monday morning was his busy day in hiring drivers to replace those whose hair had been raised either by fear or by the scalping knife. "The Indians were not the most fearsome thing to dread, for on the mountain roads were the perils of the steep and narrow grade, so narrow that on some turns the singletree had cut grooves into the banks on the high side, and often the other side was a thousand feet down to the stopping place if the vehicle should go over.
"It was these dangers that also thinned out drivers fast, and the one under discussion that brought Charley into the

"For three years Charley held that job without an accident, and would have stayed longer, but the Mormons were of a marrying disposition and rather than disclose her secret by marrying a few dames with polygamous proclivities, she left for the Pacific Coast. After a short spell on the Pacheco Pass run, she joined up with the Danforth Porter lines that connected with the Santa Cruz stage line. "Charley was a great 'whip,' and when she pulled into a stage stop with the beautifully equipped 20-passenger Concord coach drawn by six mustangs as mettlesome as quarter-horses, it was an inspiring sight indeed.

Like so many chroniclers of the era, the better you told a story, the better you were, for the telling of it. It is very difficult to believe that anyone could have remembered a crusty old driver on a public conveyance as "heroic" anymore than you would remember the bus driver that takes you from your home to work each day. But that's the way with legends. One story which was repeated, following Charley’s death, goes like this:
Once in winter, when the rain was coming down in sheets, as it had been for three days past, and the coach was laboring along through mud almost to hubs, Parkhurst was hailed by a stray wayfarer and told that the bridge across the Tuolumne river was in a shaky condition, and that it would not be wise to risk driving over it. Parkhurst answered never a word, but gathering up the lines with one hand, he cut the swings and wheelers across the haunches with the other, and pushed on. Soon the swollen stream came in sight. It was swashing and roaring like a mill-race. The bridge was next seen, and Parkhurst, clearing the rain from his eyes, perceived that in a very short time there would no longer be any bridge, for it was already shaking on its foundation.

Parkhurst not to venture on the creaking structure, but Charley, setting his teeth together, and gathering the reins in a firm grip, sent the long whip-lash curling about the leaders ears and eyes, with so vicious a swing that giving a wild leap, they plunged forward on to the bridge. The planks trembled under the horses’ hoofs and rocked beneath the wheels. But with a final effort, a cheering cry from Parkhurst and a flying lash, the opposite shore was gained in safety; gained only just in time, though, for looking back at the turn of the road the further end of the bridge was seen to sway in the stream.
that his father Charles came close several times to being told the secret of Parkhurst’s life, but each time the oldtimer drew Harmon close to the sickbed, the invalid would wave him away, saying it would keep. And so the secret was kept until Charley’s death.
It seems Charley retired in his 60's when the Railroads took up the passengers at the "Twelve Mile House" outside of Santa Cruz where Charley was suppose to have had the Sand Hill Station on the Santa Cruz-Los Gatos road. In 1879, Charley succumbed to cancer of the tongue. Legend has it that the old stagecoach driver died alone, but actually Charley was tended by the Harmons, who were neighbors, and by one Frank Woodward, with whom Charley had raised cattle and gulched wood. In a letter to the Register Pajaronian, George Harmon relates
The cancer of the mouth killed Charlie, even though the rheumatism laid her up for a long spell, while living out her last years near the "Seven Mile House" on Freedom Blvd., near Day Road.
Another interesting fact is that Charley was known to be a woman by many of her closer friends in her various communities and it was no big deal until the press discovered the story. The Watsonville Pajaronian of December 29, 1879 (on Charley's death day) stated, "It could scarcely be believed by persons who knew Charley Parkhurst for a quarter of a century." (It usually takes only one person to be "shocked" when the press "investigates" their stories. There's no story if she was a known female.)
Even Frank Woodward, the business partner and longtime companion, seemed shocked to learn Charley’s true biological sex. Reports were that Woodward “waxed profane to the extreme when he learned of the deception that had been practiced on him so many years.” However, news of Charley’s secret identity traveled remarkably slowly, giving the local papers a chance to eulogize and give tribute to this remarkable character. On December 28, six days after Charley’s death on the twenty-second, the San Francisco Morning Call wrote: He was in his day one of the most dexterous and celebrated of the famous California drivers ranking with Foss, Hank Monk, and George Gordon, and it was an honor to be striven for to occupy the spare end of the driver’s seat when the fearless Charley Parkhurst held the reins of a four-or six-in hand. . .
She was buried in Pioneer Cemetery in Freedom where a simple wood marker stated; "Parkhurst." No one was sure what her real name had been. Today she has a real "monument" as well as a small plaque at the Soquel Fire Department.

A second alarm was requested because of the potential threat to life. Aggressive action by the firefighters contained and controlled the fire in approximately 20 minutes. The involved rooms were not occupied at the time of the fire and no additional occupants were displaced. There were no injuries to civilians or firefighters. and that had a melody.

Thought provoking . . .
There was a blind girl who hated herself because she was blind. She hated everyone, except her loving boyfriend. He was always there for her. She told her boyfriend, ‘If I could only see the world, I would marry you.’ One day, someone donated a pair of eyes to her. When the bandages came off, she was able to see everything, including her boyfriend. He asked her, ‘Now that you can see the world, will you marry me?’
The girl looked at her boyfriend and saw that he was blind. The sight of his closed eyelids shocked her. She hadn’t expected that. The thought of looking at them the rest of her life led her to refuse to marry him.
Her boyfriend left in tears and days later wrote a note to her saying: ‘Take good care of your eyes, my dear, for before they were yours, they were mine.’ This is how the human brain often works when our status changes. Only a very few remember what life was like before, and who was always by their side in the most painful situations. Life Is a Gift
Today don’t judge people for a mistake made and think about when you were judged when you made
one and how good you felt when you were forgiven! Today before you say an unkind word – Think of someone who can’t speak.
Before you complain about the taste of your food – Think of someone who has nothing to eat.
Before you complain about your husband or wife – Think of someone who’s crying out to GOD for a companion. Today before you complain about life – Think of someone who went too early to heaven.
Before whining about the distance you drive Think of someone who walks the same distance with their feet. And when you are tired and complain about your job – Think of the unemployed, the disabled, and those who wish they had your job..
And when depressing thoughts seem to get you down – Put a smile on your face and think: you’re alive and still around. Subscribe to The Paper! It’s Easy Just call 760.747.7119

Alway amiable John Moetam, owner of Dominic’s, was a bit shocked when he was given only 30 days to vacate the premises by the property management firm, but, he says, and I agree, all things in life happen with a purpose.
He’ll be in a new, more prestigious locations, all the fixtures are in place, kitchen, customer dining area, lovely decor . . . and he’ll not only bring his established clientele (of which I am one) but also attract a totally new crowd that turns out for Cruisin’ Grand and other downtwon events. I’ve long been a fan of Dominic’s sausage and pepper casserole . . . probably not the best for calorie count for we who watch our weight . . . but, oh, the delicious taste! The move will happen soon, early July . . . John will have a “soft opening” and then a Grand Opening later in July. John is a good man and a superb resterauteur. Keep an eye on him and try his restaurant. ••••• Another good man who also just happens to purvey find food and drink is Vinnie Griffin, owner of Vinz Wine Bar in downtown Escondido.
Vinnie has been working closely with the Solar Alliance Foundation. Together, they have installed solar electircal systems, at no charge, to over 14 homes for veterans; that’s a $400,000 value that has been donated.
They’re not stopping there. They’re raising even more funds to provide solar electricity for even more veterans, all at no cost to the veteran. This offer is for any veteran, WWII (though they are getting to be a smaller and smaller group as many have already left us,) Korea, Vietnam, Desert Storm, Iraq, Afghanistan - any veteran that needs help is eligible.
Next time you stop in at Vinz, order a “Mug for the Military” when you have your favorite libation. $1 of every Mug for the Military goes to this wonderful fund-raising effort. Additionally, on Sunday, June 25th, there will be a “helicopter drop” at the Rancho Bernardo Country Club - with 10,000 golf balls being dropped as another fun fundraiser. Balls are available for purchase, at $10 each, get ‘em at Vinz Wine Bar, closest ball to the hole wins a large cash prize.
It’s important to take note that not ony Vinnie from Vinz Wine Bar is heavily involved in this major fundraiser for vets but a lot of the trades people, carpenters, plumbers, roofers, electricians, painters . . . all kinds of people who want a chance to say “thank you” to our well deserving vets.
This is something we can, and should, all get behind. We need to support our vets . . . today, for the sacrifices they made yesterday, today and tomorrow.

The People's Right to Recall
The two-thirds super-majority held by Democrats in Sacramento has allowed them to pass the largest gasoline tax increase in state history. This huge tax and fee increase has proven to be extremely unpopular. Recent polls suggest that 58% of registered voters disapprove. In fact, 72% of the Inland Empire, which is part of my district, oppose it.
Efforts are now underway to eliminate the Democrat twothirds super-majority by recalling one Senator from office. Another petition gathering effort is also underway to repeal the tax. By eliminating the supermajority, future tax increases, including proposals to weaken Proposition 13, would be difficult. Recall elections have been an integral part of the California political process since their inception in 1911. Even when Governor Gray Davis was recalled in 2003, no serious attempt was made to tinker with

Then they would both start playing again. Paganini was his favorite composer. Einstein always said the same thing when he came over ..."how do you like your grandpa’s big fiddle (cello)" and I would say "that's no fiddle, that's a cello"... and he would laugh. I loved when he came to visit because mom would make plum dumplings (Einstein's favorite food) and mine too ... and after the meal everyone counted the plum pits to see who ate the most dumplings and Einstein always sneaked his pits on my plate and embarrassed me.

the historic right of Californians to recall elected officials. Now however, the majority party facing backlash against their tax increase has devised a backdoor scheme to undermine this basic right of the people.
Senate Bill 96, a budget trailer bill, has been pushed through at breakneck speed to add bureaucratic hurdles and delays to the recall process. These delays include replacing the required random sample of signatures with a full count, and requiring a Department of Finance analysis of the costs of a special election. These hurdles would effectively delay any recall effort for months, weakening the entire recall process. The bill’s provisions would be retroactive, so that the current recall already approved by the Secretary of State under existing law, would be pushed out to the June, 2018 primary.
Passing a budget is a constitutional requirement that should not be used as a political tool to protect the balance of power in Sacramento. could meet your writer Freidrich Gomez!

New Website Links People with Spare Fruit/Vegetables to Groups Feeding the Hungry – Want to help end food waste and hunger in San Diego County by donating surplus fruits and vegetables to gleaner groups feeding the hungry? A new website now links people with spare fruit to groups feeding hungry residents. Visit www.sandiegogleaners.org to learn how you can join hundreds of people already involved. The groups need all types of fruits and vegetables, volunteers of any age, assistance transporting collected food, and cash donations to support their work. The site provides descriptions of each group, contact information and the geographic area each serves. The site is hosted by the San Diego Food Systems Alliance and was compiled by an SDFSA-affiliated group that meets monthly to coordinate gleaning activities. Karen Clay serves as chair. NOTE: The San Diego Food System Alliance is a multi-sector coalition of more than 30 members representing all aspects of food supply and food issues in the county.
Last year San Diego Gleaners distributed nearly 252 tons of food, Clay reported, “however, in our county alone, at least 500,000 tons of food is wasted annually, adding 18 percent to landfill volumes, while 500,000 people live in poverty.” “Rather than compost edible food or dump it in landfills, everyone agrees it makes more sense to support groups like gleaners that will get the food to people who need it.” “I can’t think of many other programs that help the environment, assist homeowners, reduce waste and feed hungry people all in one integrated process,” she added. These groups work with donors who have only a couple of trees, homeowners with small orchards and farmer with hundreds of trees. A new project collects unsold produce from several farmers’ markets. Volunteers may choose their level of commitment. Volunteers in the listed gleaning groups include many who have picked fruit weekly for decades while others only have time to participate once or twice. One gleaning group relies solely on volunteers above the age of 55. Other gleaners include scout troops, students completing community service requirements, and members of service organizations. The federal Good Samaritan Food Donation Act protects donors from liability. Donors may claim tax deductions for the value of their contributions. Gleaners are those who collect food, that would otherwise be wasted, to feed the hungry. The term originates from the practice of landowners leaving portions of their fields or crops for the poor to harvest to feed their families.
40 College Students from Around U.S. Partners with Passion 4 K.I.D.S. – Forty college students from all over the U.S. partnered with local children’s charity, Passion 4 K.I.D.S., to help the Hauer family of El Cajon who have 18 special needs children. The students did a massive cleanup at the Hauer home in the form of painting, gardening, cleaning, minor construction, a new washer/dryer, etc. Chuck Hauer, age 80, and Penny Hauer, age 77, have adopted 18 special needs children and care for them in a loving and nurturing home. However, because of the parents’ advanced age and limited resources, the Hauer home was in need of some tender loving care. This heartwarming event highlights the best in humanity – people coming together to help others in need. The students are members of Cru, a faith-based organization that pairs 82,000 students nationwide with those that need help. They have chosen to work in San Diego this summer.
Passion 4 K.I.D.S., a 501(c)3 non-profit charity based in Encinitas, was founded by Charles and Linda Van Kessler for kids in desperate situations, dealing with handicapped, neglected, abandoned, abused and underprivileged children of any race, color and creed as well as children in acute, lifethreatening, emergency situations in the U.S. These are the “forgotten” children whose young lives have been turned upside down,

Historically Speaking by Tom Morrow
A U.S. Senator’s Assault on Our Democracy
If you think today’s Congressional hearings have been contentious, for those of us who witnessed the ArmyMcCarthy in the early ‘50s, presentday investigative hearings are child’s play compared to the Communist “witch-hunt” hearings of U.S. Sen. Joseph McCarthy, R-Wis.
\During the early days of the “Cold War” there was a lethal force disguised as a warrior for good, but in reality, was one of our history’s most dangerous characters. The chaos created by Senator McCarthy cast an atmosphere of unwarranted suspicion, ruining the lives and reputation of hundreds of government officials and citizens. It was a period known as “McCarthyism.”
Joseph McCarthy, born Nov. 14, 1908, alleged large numbers of Soviet spies and Communist sympathizers were inside the federal government. In February 1950, after three largely undistinguished years in the Senate, McCarthy rose suddenly to national attention when he made a speech asserting he had a list of "members of the Communist Party and a spy ring" who were employed in the State Department. In succeeding years, McCarthy made additional accusations of Communist infiltration into the State Department, the administration of President Truman, the Voice of America, and the U.S. Army. In autumn 1953, McCarthy's committee began its ill-fated inquiry into the United States Army. He garnered some headlines with stories of a dangerous spy ring among the Army researchers, but after weeks of hearings, nothing came of his investigations.
Early in 1954, the U.S. Army accused McCarthy and his chief counsel, Roy Cohn, of improperly pressuring the Army to give favorable treatment of a former aide to McCarthy and a friend of Cohn's. McCarthy claimed the accusation was made in bad faith, in retaliation for his questioning of a senior officer. The Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations, usu-
ally chaired by McCarthy himself, was given the task of adjudicating these conflicting charges. The ArmyMcCarthy hearings convened on April 22, 1954. The most famous incident in the hearings, which was the beginning of McCarthy’s downfall, was an exchange between McCarthy and the Army's chief legal representative, Joseph Welch. On June 9, the 30th day of the hearings, Welch challenged Roy Cohn to provide U.S. Attorney General Herbert Brownell Jr. with McCarthy's list of 130 Communists or subversives in defense plants "before the sun goes down." McCarthy stepped in and said that if Welch was so concerned about persons aiding the Communist Party, he should check on a man in his Boston law office named Fred Fisher, who had once belonged to the National Lawyers Guild, a progressive lawyers association.
In an impassioned defense of Fisher, Welch responded, "Until this moment, Senator, I think I never really gauged your cruelty or your recklessness ..." When McCarthy resumed his attack, Welch interrupted him: "Let us not assassinate this lad further, Senator. You've done enough. Have you no sense of decency, sir, at long last? Have you left no sense of decency?" When McCarthy once again persisted, Welch cut him off and demanded the chairman "call the next witness." At that point, the gallery erupted in applause and a recess was called.
The hearings lasted for 36 days, all broadcast on live television with an estimated 20 million viewers. After hearing 32 witnesses and 2 million words of testimony, the committee concluded that McCarthy himself had not exercised any improper influence on the soldier's behalf. Of far greater importance to McCarthy than the committee's inconclusive final report was the negative effect the extensive exposure had on his popularity. In 1954, McCarthy's support and popularity faded. On Dec. 2, 1954, the Senate voted to censure Senator McCarthy by a vote of 67 to 22, making him one of the few senators ever to be disciplined in this fashion. President Eisenhower, who didn’t like McCarthy, quipped to his Cabinet that “McCarthyism” was now "McCarthywasm.”
McCarthy died in Bethesda Naval Hospital on May 2, 1957, at the age of 48. The official cause of his death was listed as acute hepatitis, an inflammation of the liver. It was hinted in the press that he died of alcoholism, an estimation that is now accepted by contemporary biographers.
As a footnote: Decades after McCarthy's death, the Venona project - which decrypted Soviet messages, Soviet espionage data now opened to the West, and newly released transcripts of closed hearings before McCarthy's subcommittee -- partially vindicated McCarthy by showing that many of his identifications of Communists were correct, and the scale of Soviet espionage activity in the U.S. during the 1940s and 1950s was larger than many suspected.

Donation Day for The Woman’s Club of Vista - Celebrating Donation Day with The Woman’s Club of Vista were representatives from 27 non-profit organizations which received a total of $31,500 in donations to support their work in the community. President Nancy B Jones reminded everyone that last year the Club celebrated its 100 years of service. The Vista Library was started and housed in a Woman’s Club member’s home in 1916. The Vista School District also started in 1916 and was supported by Club members. President-elect and Donations Committee Chairman Judy Pantazo shared the history of the Club’s sale of the Clubhouse in 2005, which funds the annual donations as well as scholarships given to graduating seniors at six schools. Community organizations including Operation HOPE – Vista, North County Lifeline, Meals with Love, New Haven Youth & Family Services, Assistance League North Coast, Brother Benno’s, Bread of Life, and Women’s Resource Center received donations. Their representatives shared about their work in the community with families, youth, homeless, and women. The
Club also supports Gently Hugged, which provides a bag of first-year clothing and a handmade quilt for needy new moms. Garden of Innocence conducts dignified burials for abandoned babies and a member of the Club makes blankets for the tiny caskets used in the burials. The Angel Faces summer retreats for girls with disfiguring burns are supported as well. An assistance dog with Canine Companions for Independence rested quietly through the speakers, then basked in all the attention and posed for photos. The Club has received several partner awards from Canine Companions at the national GFWC Convention for their continued support of the program. The Club’s donation to Family Readiness for HMLA-369 helps support the squadron before their various deployments. Members have helped by providing cakes for the Marines birthday and with food for Thanksgiving in the barracks for single Marines. The Rancho Buena Vista Adobe and the Vista Art Foundation representatives added their thanks; they provide field trips and promote the Alley Art Festival coming to Vista again in September. The donation to the Children’s Garden at Alta Vista Botanical Gardens supports a quiz box on the nature discovery trail, which should be completed by early summer. The Boys & Girls Clubs of San Marcos and Vista provide enriching after-school programs to promote education, self-confidence, and leadership. Donations to Route 78 Civitan Club and Pride of Vista Lions will support developmentally disabled individuals and provide vision screening. The Miss Pride of Vista Pageant helps young women become more confident and provide community service. Vista Teen Outreach collects and provides food for pantries at elementary schools; families receive food to supplement their meals, including weekends and school holidays. The Vista Historical Society will be celebrating their 50th anniversary in August.

The Woman’s Club of Vista will continue its tradition of supporting the non-profit organizations that improve lives. As one representative closed her presentation, she summed up the Donation Day event and the strong feelings that impacted all of the participants with her thanks: “Too many to name, but not too many to love.” The public is welcome at all meetings of The Woman’s Club of Vista at the Shadowridge Golf Club. New members were initiated at the June 14 meeting, and the program featured the graduating seniors who are receiving scholarships.

Escondido Public Library – Why it Matters
Escondido is a full service city. We have our own police department, fire department, and among many others, we have also operated our own public library since 1898.
I am passionate about libraries because I recognize the value added to my life, personal and professional, by having inspiration from library resources. Libraries in general are a critical part of public infrastructure that provide access to knowledge through technology, workshops, literacy programs, books and most certainly the professional staff

that engage with community members each day. A study by the American Library Association found that 94% of American’s believe a public library improves the quality of life in a community. The Escondido Public library is suddenly at risk of substantial changes.
In 2011, the Escondido City Council majority voted to close a branch library. That vote came about as part of a budget discussion – not a library discussion. The topic was tucked into a related but not exclusive public process. The same thing is being attempted now. The full council has always given direction to operate city services efficiently. Beyond that,
Breaking News: New Therapy Approved for Hodgkin Lymphoma Patients – The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) has some exciting news about the FDA approval of pembrolizumab (Keytruda), a therapy for classical Hodgkin Lymphoma; it is an immune checkpoint inhibitor that helps the patient’s immune system more readily recognize and attack cancer cells. This approval may have positive ramifications beyond this important news. While Hodgkin Lymphoma is considered one of the most curable cancers, this newly approved therapy is for patients who have relapsed after current therapies, and who have limited treatment options. Approval of pembrolizumab for people with classical Hodgkin Lymphoma also reinforces the hope that immunotherapy will prove effective in fighting a wide variety of cancers. In fact, LLS is currently funding research on the benefits of this same immunotherapy for patients with nonHodgkin Lymphoma. Ongoing research into new treatments and advances like this is paving the way for a promising future. To find our more about this FDA approved therapy, visit the website at www.LLS.org, or

Before caller ID. Before voice mail. Before call screening was even possible, and before robo calls, I would receive calls at the church from live salespersons, selling some product or service to “businesses.”
The caller sometimes asked, “Can I speak to the owner of the church?” He or she was following a script, I’m sure. I was young, inexperienced, more gracious and less cynical than I am now. “I am the pastor,” I would say, “can I help you?” Today, that call might go like this: “Hello, can I speak to the owner of the Church?” “Yes, of course you can.” “Is he the one who makes purchasing decisions for the church.” “Oh, yes, we depend on him for all our decisions.” “When’s the best time to reach him?”
“Any time, really. He’s always around here.” “Can you transfer me to his extension?” “Better yet, you can have his direct line.” In my less gracious, more cynical way, I could say that I misunderstood the caller and thought he was asking for … prayer. After all, my training is in theology, not marketing. I know a lot more about prayer than selling.
God is the owner of the church. In fact He owns the whole universe. We, as believers, depend on Him for all life decisions. When we don’t, we usually get into trouble. You can reach Him any time. He’s always everywhere, 24/7/365.
No need for an intermediary. He takes everyone’s calls. You won’t get screened or transferred. I don’t mean to be frivolous about prayer. Think about what the Bible says about prayer: “The faithful prayer of a righteous man accomplishes much.” Sometimes it takes persistence to “close the deal.” “Wherever two or three are gathered in my name, I am in the midst.” That’s availability. Anytime, anywhere. “Ask and you shall receive, seek and you shall find, knock and it shall be opened.” That’s reliability, and God’s record is better than any. Make that call. God is ready. He’ll probably even double the offer……ooops, double the blessings.

Chuckles Cont. from Page 2
over shyness and usually, show-andtell is pretty tame. Kids bring in pet turtles, model airplanes, pictures of fish they catch, stuff like that. And I never, ever place any boundaries or limitations on them. If they want to lug it in to school and talk about it, they're welcome. Well, one day this little girl, Erica, a very bright, very outgoing kid, takes her turn and waddles up to the front of the class with a pillow stuffed under her sweater.
She holds up a snapshot of an infant. 'This is Luke, my baby brother, and I'm going to tell you about his birthday.' 'First, Mom and Dad made him as a symbol of their love, and then Dad put a seed in my Mom's stomach, and Luke grew in there. He ate for nine months through an umbrella cord.'
She's standing there with her hands on the pillow, and I'm trying not to laugh and wishing I had my camcorder with me. The kids are watching her in amazement.
'Then, about two Saturdays ago, my Mom starts going, 'Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh!' Erica puts a hand behind her back and groans. 'She walked around the house for, like an hour, 'Oh, oh, oh!' (Now this kid is doing a hysterical duck walk and groaning.) 'My Dad called the middle wife. She delivers babies, but she doesn't have a
sign on the car like the Domino's man. They got my Mom to lie down in bed like this.' (Then Erica lies down with her back against the wall.) 'And then, pop! My Mom had this bag of water she kept in there in case he got thirsty, and it just blew up and spilled all over the bed, like psshhheew!' (This kid has her legs spread with her little hands miming water flowing away. It was too much!)
'Then the middle wife starts saying 'push, push,' and 'breathe, breathe. They started counting, but never even got past ten. Then, all of a sudden, out comes my brother. He was covered in yucky stuff that they all said it was from Mom's play-center, so there must be a lot of toys inside there. When he got out, the middle wife spanked him for crawling up in there in the first place.' Then Erica stood up, took a big theatrical bow and returned to her seat. I'm sure I applauded the loudest. Ever since then, when it's Show-andtell day, I bring my camcorder, just in case another 'Middle Wife' comes along.

Keeping the Pipes Clean
The City’s Public Works Sanitary Sewer crews spend their workday surveying the public sewer infrastructure under the streets, one manhole at a time, using specially mounted live cameras. The cameras make their way through sewer pipes searching for obstructions and blockages that threaten to block the city’s sewer system.
One of the leading causes of sewer backups in homes is repeatedly pouring cooking fats, oils and grease down the drain; when you do this, the substance cools and hardens in your
pipes. In addition, when these materials accumulate in the larger, public sewer pipes under the street, they can cause a major backup or spill if not noticed. In order to eliminate this leading cause of sewer backups in homes and to protect the public sewer system, dispose of all cooking fats, oils, and greases correctly. Public Works suggests always scraping dishes and pans with paper towels and then disposing in the trash or pour hot oil or grease into a can and dispose in the trash after cooling. Let’s keep our sewer pipes clean and free of blockage!

This and That
Readers may recall the column from April 27 titled “Kaboom” in which we discussed the incident from the previous week in which a young mother crashed her SUV through our front wall at a little after one PM on Thursday. Neither she nor the two toddlers in the back seat suffered injury but our place was trashed (Picture). Today we are back to better than normal (picture).

Lee Roy “Zeke” Schmidt 03/07/1933 ~ 05/24/2017
ESCONDIDO -- Lee Roy "Zeke" Schmidt was born in a log cabin on Terrill Creek Road in Billings, Missouri, on March 7th, 1933, to Frank and Alma Schmidt. On May 24th, 2017, at 84 years of age, he passed from this life into the presence of his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. In his life, he was a faithful husband, father and grandfather, a little league
The next day we totaled up the damage to the contents of our store and filed our claim. We lost a 50 inch TV, a glass show case, a couple of warehouse racks, a refurb notebook PC and a few miscellaneous items. One customer’s computer was being tested at a work station directly against the front wall. It was hurled 25 feet and the acrylic case was shattered. We had to completely replace his computer.
Our damages totaled only two thousand dollars but the damage to the building was significant. Geico took full responsibility for all damages and worked quickly with our property management firm to get the repairs done. The contractors did a great job and did not in the least interfere with our business operation. It took Geico a while to settle our claim but even as small as our claim was, Geico’s adjusters insisted on documentation for all of our losses. We gave them what they asked for and in the end they paid our claim in full with no disputes.
of us involved there was plenty of racial and ethnic diversity and we were probably evenly divided between Republicans and Democrats but none of that ever came up. Makes you wonder what our country’s leaders might be able to accomplish if only they concentrated on the job at hand instead of each other.

Zeke was preceded in death by Sydney Jane Schmidt, his wife of 61 years; and by one of his dear grandchildren. He is survived by his six adult children and their spouses: Steve and Nancy Schmidt, Becky and Bill Cummings, Sue Schmidt, Victoria and Harley Faber, Dave and Joyce Schmidt, and Mark and Kelly Schmidt; 18 grandchildren; 27 great-grandchildren; and a brother and wife, Jim and Mary Schmidt.

If you object to the granting of the petition, you should appear at the hearing and state your objections or file written objections with the court before the hearing. Your appearance may be in person or by your attorney. If you are a creditor or a contingent creditor of the decedent, you must file your claim with the court and mail a copy to the personal representative appointed by the court within the later of either (1) four months from the date of first issuance of letters to a general personal representative, as defined in Section 58(b) of the California Probate Code, or (2) 60 days from the date of mailing or personal delivery to you of a notice under section 9052 of the California Probate Code. Other California statues and legal authority may affect your rights as a creditor. You may want to consult with an attorney knowledgeable in California law. You may examine the file kept by the court. If you are a peson interested in the estate, you may file with the court a Request for Special Notice (form DE-154) of the filing of an inventory and appraisal of estate assets or of any petition or account as provided in Probate Code section 1250.
