Volume 46 - No. 25

It was only a few weeks ago, today, on Saturday, May 28, 2016 at Avenger Field at Sweetwater, Texas, where the WASP Homecoming 2016 took place. Sadly, it went virtually unnoticed from the press corps. To this very day, these fiercely patriotic ‘fly girls’ – pioneer women military pilots from the Second World War -- are still fighting an uphill battle for recognition. Unlike the draftees who fought the “War to End all Wars,” these women warrior pilots were not drafted into action on behalf of their country – they all volunteered, every one of them. Thirty-eight would perish during World War II and today, due to advancing old age, their numbers are quickly dwindling. Prior to their gathering last month in Texas, a flyer advertising their reunion sadly said it all: “This could be the last chance we have to pay tribute to many of the “The Girls’ while they are still with us.” Almost 75 years after they distinguished themselves as true American heroes during World War II, an elite group of civilian women pilots have only themselves to cling to in camaraderie, as they remain hugely ignored and unsung today. What little recognition they have managed to receive came slowly and, for many, too late.
Back in 2010 WASP (Women Airforce Service Pilots) survivors were celebrated when they were awarded the Congressional Gold Medal, before one of the largest crowds ever assembled in the nation’s Capitol. One can only imagine what went through the collective hearts and minds of these, largely, unheralded patriot survivors, knowing that many of their precious sisters-inarms were not there to share this prestigious honor. Many WASP had not lived long enough, but then again, the long wait was far too long in the first place. (Note: the acronym is WASP, not WASPs for plural since WASP, itself, is plural for Women Airforce Service Pilots.) According to the Washington Bureau (Tom McIlroy) only about 170 women WASP survivors were able to make it to the steps of the Capitol building back then, all of them in their 80s and 90s at the time. Many were in wheelchairs.
Not many are left out of the original 1,830 WASP program. WASP survivor, Betty Berkstresser was there – after seven decades of historical neglect – and she was in full uniform. Berkstresser was once a young girl in the WASP uniform; a pioneer aviator with stardust in her eyes, and a spring in her step. She was 90 years at the 2010 festivities (she is 96 today). Remarkably, she is still with us at age The Paper - 760.747.7119

THUNDER FROM THE SKIES! Women Warrior Pilots Gather At Texas In 2016

96. She now walks even slower, and may not look much like a war hero. But she is, rightfully so, then and now. During that ceremony at the nation’s capitol, she finally held her Congressional Gold Medal, signed into legislation by President Barack Obama, and bestowed to her (each WASP was given a replica) by both houses of the United States Congress. Berkstresser, once again, had stardust in her eyes, as she once did as a young girl in WASP uniform, when she flew the skies – free from all the male discrimination she had to endure during those early war years. It was a long time coming, and she cradled the Congressional Gold Medal – the highest possible civilian award given by Congress – close to her, as if it were a long-lost child. Because, in many ways, it was. Over the loudspeaker, a voice bellowed: “I believe this is the day when the people of America no longer hesitate in answering, ‘Do you know who the WASP are?’” The words fell upon a crowd

of old-timers and youngsters, alike. A crowd so large that it was unable to fit into the Emancipation Hall. WASP kinfolk, and families of those who had since died, or were physically unable to travel, were assembled. Emotions ran deep and tears were seen on many faces. The words from the loudspeaker were from none other than Deanie Parrish, a surviving WASP who at 21 joined up to become a woman flier in 1943. She, too, was no longer young but, somehow, her words belied her age as they rang clear and strong, and as vibrant as she once was at 21. She is now, 95 years old today. “It was both a privilege and an honor to serve our country during some of the darkest days of World War II.” Parrish’s words could, with justification, have been filled with bitterness for all the years she and her copatriots endured mistreatment as unimportant, second-hand participants in the war effort. Instead, Parrish used her uniform, and forum, to proclaim America’s greatness and, by so doing, buoyed herself and the
country she served in the most noble of ways.
It is most ironic that the WASP engaged their biggest enemy – prejudice – at the very home-front which they chose to defend. They had suffered extreme, overt prejudice from their male military counterparts – and the U.S. government as a whole – all of whom mistreated, ignored, or downplayed their heroic efforts. The WASP were, begrudgingly, allowed to participate as military fliers only as a

last resort, because there was a desperate need for them. Former WASP, Kaddy Steele, remembers the harsh stereotyping: “Women weren’t supposed to be doctors, lawyers, or engineers. I could be a nurse, a librarian or a teacher. Those were my choices. And if it wasn’t for the war and the fact that they were so short of pilots that . . . they condescended to let us enter the sanctum sanctorum. And they let us know that. They let us in because they needed us. They needed pilots.”
It became one of the most unique and inspiring chapters in American military annals. These dedicated, fiercely patriotic women took their place in history. But not without a hefty emotional, psychological, and physical price. Thirty-eight women would be killed in the line of duty, serving as legendary WASP. Yet for all their devotion, sacrifice, and love of country, they were cruelly, and shamefully, brushed aside and relegated to abject neglect. They obtained no official military status, and former WASP, Louise Bowen Brown, tells of a heart-wrenching episode that would prove typical. Brown recalls a train ride that she will long remember. Brown was escorting her beloved roommate’s casket from Texas to New York. Upon arrival, Brown had to inform her roommate’s parents that their young daughter (a WASP) was killed. The young WASP never received any military honors. No flag was given by the military to drape over her coffin and no official commemoration from the country she had just died for acknowledged her. It is a most tragic tale with no happy ending. But the

Dear Sir, I have a Benefit Question
Many years ago, I married a widow out of love who had an 18-year-old daughter.
After the wedding, my father, a widower, came to visit a number of times, and he fell in love with my step-daughter.
My father eventually married her without my authorization.
As a result, my step-daughter legally became my step-mother and my father my son-in-law. My father's wife (also my step-daughter) and my step-mother, gave birth to a son who is my grandchild because I am the husband of my
WASP never forsook their fallen sister. Out of necessity, these women were forced to take up a collection of their own for the fallen heroine. The military did not even give Brown the money to transport the body for the young girl’s burial. Sadly, this was not an isolated incident. It happened with ever WASP death. Nevertheless, these women volunteers proved to be pioneers during an era where many women did not even have a driver’s license.
1940 was a milestone year in avionics, particularly for women. Prior to America’s involvement in World War II, women pilots were chomping at the bit to involve themselves in the war overseas – as pilots! American pilots, such as Jacqueline “Jackie” Cochran volunteered for England’s Air Transport Auxiliary (ATA). Far more liberal than their American counterparts, England’s ATA was using female pilots since January, 1940. The American women who flew for the ATA became the first American female pilots to ever fly military aircraft. And into the record books they flew, unbridled. History’s first women military pilots flew frontline aircraft such as the Spitfires, Typhoons, Hudsons, Mitchells, Blenheims, Oxfords, Walruses and Sea Otters. And though it is true that they flew in non-combat roles, they did fly in combat-like conditions, setting the stage for others to follow. By contrast, the United States was far more reluctant than England to include women fliers in military aircraft, even in non-combat roles. However, as World War II raged on, it was soon discovered that women fliers could very well prove to be
This boy is also my brother, as the son of my father. As you can see, my wife became a grandmother, because she is the mother of my father's wife. Therefore, it appears that I am also my wife's grandchild.
A short time after these events, my wife gave birth to a son, who became my father's brother-in-law, the stepson of my father's wife, and my uncle. My son is also my step-mother's brother, and through my step-mother, my wife has become a grandmother and I have become my own grandfather. In light of the above mentioned, I would like to know the following: Does my son, who is also my uncle, my father's son-in-law, and my stepmother's brother fulfill the requirements for receiving childcare benefits?

The Nude Runner
A woman was having a daytime affair while her husband was at work. One rainy day she was in bed with her boyfriend when, to her horror, she heard her husband's car pull into the driveway.
America’s secret weapon! In 1942, First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt declared: “This is not a time when women should be patient. We are in a war and we need to fight it with all our ability and every weapon possible. Women pilots, in this particular case, are a weapon waiting to be used.” The record books would prove Eleanor Roosevelt’s words to ring true. Even before the onset of World War II women pilots had distinguished themselves. The likes of Amelia Earhart, Jacqueline Cochran, Nancy Harkness Love, Bessie Coleman, and Harriet Quimby were just a few examples of women record-holders in aviation. It was a supreme shame not to tap into America’s ‘secret weapon.’ Eleanor Roosevelt’s cry to arms on behalf of America’s women pilots was a gauntlet thrown at America’s feet. It was now time for America to rise to new levels. It was time for history to turn a new page, and for women fliers to begin to write upon it. The Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASP) was first created in August of 1943, after the WAFS (Women’s Auxiliary Ferry Squadron) under the command of Nancy Harkness Love, and the WFTD (319th Women’s flying Training Detachment) commanded by Jacqueline Cochran, both combined into one, single entity: the WASP. Jacqueline Cochran had pushed for such a consolidation, and having better military connections, was kept on as WASP commander. The Army’s intention was to have women fill all the ‘flying jobs’ here in the United States, thereby relieving their male counterparts to travel and contribute to the front lines as military fliers. And it worked seamlessly. Women pilots were cultivated and trained to fly non-combat assign'Oh my God - Hurry! Grab your clothes and jump out the window. My husband's home early!'
'I can't jump out the window. It's raining out there!'
'If my husband catches us in here, he'll kill us both!' she replied. 'He's got a hot temper and a gun, so the rain is the least of your problems!'
So the boyfriend scoots out of bed, grabs his clothes and jumps out the window! As he ran down the street in the pouring rain, he quickly discovered he had run right into the middle of the town's annual marathon, so he started running along beside the others, about 300 of them. Being naked, with his clothes tucked under his arm, he tried to blend in as best he could. After a little while a small group of runners who had been watching him with some curiosity, jogged closer.
‘Do you always run in the nude?' one asked.
'Oh yes!' he replied, gasping in air. 'It feels so wonderfully free!' Another runner moved a long side. 'Do you always run carrying your clothes with you under your arm?' 'Oh, yes' our friend answered breathlessly. 'That way I can get dressed right at the end of the run and get in my car to go home!'
ments: they flew newly-manufactured airplanes to various military bases and participated in test-piloting new aircraft as well. They even conducted test flights on the B-29, proving to male pilots that the B-29 was, indeed, easier and safer to fly than they (the male pilots) thought possible! The B-29 was thought to be a dangerous plane when engine fires flared up during early runs, and a top male pilot was killed testing it. The Army purposely used the WASP to test fly the B-29s to help ease the fear that male pilots harbored. Colonel Paul Tibbets handpicked Dora Doughery Strother and Dorethea Johnson Moorman to ‘fly market’ the B-29 at various military bases. Such exercises by the women fliers kept proving to male pilots that if the controversial four-engine bomber was safe enough for women, it would prove safe enough for the reluctant male pilots. Col. Tibbets well remembers that historic moment: “They (the seasoned male combat pilots) were dumbfounded that two women could fly an airplane that way, when they said it wouldn’t fly! It had an amazing effect!” (“Fly Girls,” American Experience video, 2006). However, hate, jealousy, and prejudice against WASP fliers ran deep within the male military ranks. Col. Tibbets recalls one such incident: “One of the men on that airplane (flown by WASP Strother and Moorman) went into the Operations Office and pulled off his ‘wings’ and threw them down on the desk of the Operations Office and said, ‘I’m finished – that’s the end of it!’” He was quickly told, “Lieutenant, pick up your ‘wings’ – you’re not finished until we tell you, your finished!!” Such test flights were crucial in winning

Then a third runner cast his eyes a little lower and asked, 'Do you always wear a condom when you run?' 'Nope..just when it's raining.'

Two little old ladies, Connie & Mary, were sitting on a park bench outside the local town hall where a flower show was in progress. The short one, Connie, leaned over and said, 'Life is so boring. We never have any fun anymore. For $10.00 I'd take my clothes off and streak through that stupid, boring flower show.’ 'You're on!' said Mary, holding up a $10.00 bill.
So Connie slowly fumbled her way out of her clothes. She grabbed a dried flower from a nearby display and held it between her teeth. Then, completely naked, streaked (as fast as an old lady can) through the front door of the flower show. Waiting outside, her friend soon heard a huge commotion inside the hall, followed by loud applause and shrill whistling. Finally, the smiling Connie came through the exit door surrounded by a cheering, clapping crowd. 'What happened?' asked Mary.

the war. Later, in 1945, it was this same Colonel Paul Tibbets who ended up piloting the American B-29 Superfortress (known as Enola Gay) that dropped the world’s first atomic bomb (code-named “Little Boy”) over Hiroshima, Japan, which put into motion the beginning of the end of World War II.
Despite their heroic contributions, the WASP were not always welcomed at the various air bases where they were sent. At Camp Davis, North Carolina, it was made clear they were not wanted. Many planes returning from overseas combat were in dire need of repair and were supposed to be fully repaired from any defects before being re-assigned. The planes that were re-assigned to WASP fliers were suspected of being neglected – on purpose! Women pilots experienced repeated engine failure. The WASP expressed concern that their planes were not being properly maintained. Former WASP, Ann Baumgartner Carl, remembers: “Airplane pilots flying the plane – if they see something wrong, they write it down. And it’s supposed to be taken off the flightline until it’s fixed. What they would do was, not ground the plane; they’d just write where the problem was – and off it would go (unfixed).” (“Fly Girls” video, Ibid) After two WASP had died and another one was seriously injured within one month, serious allegations of foul play by male discriminators was strongly suspected. It was clear to the aviatrix that the WASP plane crashes were caused by deliberate sabotage! Cochran would later admit that she found sugar in the gas tanks of one of the crashed WASP planes. But she was concerned that scandalous publicity might abolish her WASP program, so she did not publicize it at the time. (“Fly Girls,” Ibid). WASP flier, Mabel Rawlinson, was among those whose death at Camp Davis lingered on in the minds of her WASP sisters. Former WASP, Dora Dougherty Strother, remem-

bers the day, “I don’t know what it could have been attributed to, but the fire was intense . . . they could not get Mabel out and she burned to death.” The episode devastated the WASP.
In a span of almost three years (beginning with the WAFS), from 1942 to 1944 (when the WASP program was disbanded), over one thousand women pilots flew test planes, instructed male pilots, and towed targets for anti-aircraft artillery practice. Some were young girls still in their teens, like WASP Marguerite “Ty” Hughes Killen, who passed her flight tests and got her commercial and flight instructor rating at the tender age of 18. (It was in August of 1943 that WASP training program lowered its age limit from 21 to 18 ½)
The WASP were never drafted and forced into service (as many of their male counterparts were). Quite simply, they all could have just stayed at home. Perhaps some would have married, raised children, or worked in war factories to support the war effort, like Rosie the Riveter. Yet, they chose to come forward, out of their safe havens, into the shadow of war, to serve their country. And they did. And many died. WASP applicants covered the spectrum of Americana: housewives, secretaries, waitresses, students, factory workers, nurses, and teachers. One was even a Ziegfeld chorus girl. Two were Chinese-Americans: Hazel Ying Lee, and Maggie Gee. Lee gave her life as a WASP when she died in a runway accident. Gee survived the war. There was one Native American WASP, Ola Mildred Rexroat, a young Oglala Sioux from South Dakota’ Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. The young female patriot survived the war and later joined the U.S. Air Force where she continued to serve her country.
More than 25,000 women applied to the WASP program. Only 1,830 were accepted. And only 1,074 passed. Pilot training was harsh and unforgiving. Only 50 percent of the WASP trainees made it to graduation. Unlike other military branches, WASP trainees had to pay out-ofpocket expenses for their travel to

training camp, their food at mess hall, and their barrack lodgings. On top of it all, they experienced rejection and were regarded by many ruthless male counterparts as useless, and unworthy to fly, simply because they were women. Those WASP who went on, distinguished themselves beyond expectations and, eventually, served as role models for others to follow in their footsteps. The WASP had every reason to be proud of their ranks – they had comparable flying records as their male counterparts. Some said their flying records were even superior to male pilots. Famed WWII pilot, Chuck Yeager (Charles Elwood “Chuck” Yeager) said of the WASP fliers, “They could’ve been sent to the war had the law allowed it and they would probably had done as good as the men had they had equal experience.” (“Fly Girls” video, Ibid).
The accomplishments of the WASP are monumental. Even breathtaking. They were stationed at 120 air bases across the United States. They flew over 60-million miles of operational flight, in 78 different types of aircraft, to 108 bases. They delivered 12,650 military airplanes and were crucial in helping win the war. Some of them were so exceptional in their skills that they qualified and were given the right to test rocket-propelled planes, and to pilot jet-propelled aircraft. And though they flew for the military, took the military oath, and died in the service of their country – they had no minimal medical care, no life insurance, and in some cases, they had no fire truck for possible crashes, and they (sometimes) were given a ‘loaned’ ambulance. Thirty-eight died; eleven in training and 27 on active duty. Through all of this, they faced brutal discrimination, and even death – some deaths now thought to have come about through deliberate, planned sabotage from their own countrymen! By 1944, air superiority had been achieved overseas and U.S. airmen began to come home. Pilot training programs halted in the U.S. and all pilots (those returning from war as well as male flight instructors at

home) now faced the draft – as foot soldiers. However, if the men could take over the jobs held by the WASP fliers, they would be spared the draft. A campaign was soon launched against the women fliers. Airmen, powerful columnists in newspapers, and even Congress attacked and called for the dismantlement of the WASP program. Even the tide of public opinion began to turn against the women fliers. It was only six months earlier that the general populace thought it noble and patriotic to be a WASP. America was now yearning to return to pre-war customs. Women, they said, were to be in their homes, not flying airplanes. And with the unemployment rate after the war rising dramatically from three million to 12 million, the timing looked atrocious for the WASP program. It was now considered, by many, to be unpatriotic to be a WASP. Congress held hearings, focusing heavily on the ‘alleged’ high costs of training women pilots. The anti-WASP campaign was in full swing. The national sentiment seemed to be that if women pilots wished in to be in the military, they should join the WAC (Women’s Army Corps).
WASP architect and commander, Jacqueline Cochran, saw things differently. She wanted the Army to militarize the WASP program and keep it airborne. Her close friend and contact, Gen. Henry “Hap” Arnold, of the USAAF, suggested to Cochran that she militarize the WASP under the WAC program. But Cochran was certain that if that happened, the WASP would be kept permanently on the ground. There were nearly one hundred thousand WAC serving in the army and none of them were fliers. If Cochran were designated head of the WAC program, her WASP fliers would stay in the air. Her hopes to accomplish this were dashed when another immensely talented woman, Colonel Oveta Cup Hobby, was designated director of the WAC. It was no secret that

The Paper • Page 4 • June 23, 2016 Investigation into Suspicious Death Continues
On Monday, June 13th, at approximately 1:10pm, CHP, Escondido Police, and Escondido Fire personnel responded to a report of an unresponsive female in a vehicle on the on-ramp to northbound I-15 from El Norte Pkwy. Escondido Fire Department personnel arrived and determined that the female was deceased. The deceased had a head injury and was seated in the driver seat of the vehicle. The front driver and passenger side windows of the black Mercury Sable were shattered.
Escondido Police are investigating the case as a suspicious death. The deceased female is identified as Elizabeth Antoinette Perez, a 38 year old resident of Fontana. The investigation is on-going. There is no indication of an immediate threat to the public. Anyone with additional information is asked to call Escondido Police at 760-839-4722, or leave information anonymously at 760-743-TIPS (8477). San Marcos Sex Trafficking Ring Enters Not Guilty Plea
Pimping, pandering and human trafficking . . . all charges were leveled agains a trio of individuals who based their operation in San Marcos.
Tyrone Evans, 40, Lila Lefors, 36, and Natash McElrath, 37, were all arrested Friday, after a year long investigation by the District Attorney’s Human Trafficking Task Force.
Man About Town
Covering the Arts: For the better part of the last 16 years Troy Larson has served as Art Director for The Paper.
Come to find out Sunday morning that Troy is in ICU at the VA Hospital in Seattle, Washington, with some heart problems.
We’re hoping that all is well with Troy and we’ll have him back at his artist’s easel in short order. Troy and I operate pretty much on the same wave length when it comes to designing the art for our cover stories. Often, I’ll work up a rough draft and send to him so he’ll get a good idea of what I want to convey. He reshapes it and sends it back as a marvelous work of art.
The trio is alleged to have forced the girls into prostitution, primnarily by Evans. Evans could face a maximum of 29 years in state prison if convicted of all charges. Lefors and McElrath each face up to 24 years if convicted. “This month’s successful takedown of two sex trafficking operations is further evidence of law enforcement commitment and cooperation in San Diego County to stop the scourge of human trafficking,” said District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis.
Dumanis went on to say that her department investigated the ring for over a year by reviewing financial records, checking communications on social media, emails and other social messaging platforms. This is the second human trafficking ring broken up this year. Carlsbad Motorcyclist Killed in Crash Near Julian
One rider was killed after two motorcyclists crashed into each other this past Sunday, near Julian.

California Highway Patrol officers state that it appears the victim, driving a 2012 Harley-Davidson west on state route 78 when he crashed in a curve new Spring View Road about 4:50 p.m. He was ejected into the path of the other motorcyclist, who
It might be an interesting gallery of art to pull together all the cover stories Troy has done for us over the years (16 years = 52 weeks x 16 = 832 covers - not to mention the many ads and promotional announcement/ads and feature pages he has designed). Very talented and lovable man. I call him my favorite Norwegian (though his true nationality is unknown as he was adopted by a Norwegian family).
Hoping Troy bounces back. This week’s cover was cobbled together by a wandering gypsy with gray hair who was wandering the streets with a tin cup asking for alms. We were so touched we commissioned him to do the cover. If you like me, you’ll like this graphic artist gypsy as well. You see, we are one and the same.
Meanwhile, eldest son Scott is also in hospital with pancreatitis and gall bladder problems. He normally delivers The Paper in Escondido, Rancho Bernardo and parts of San Marcos. Not this week.

Neither alcohol or drugs ares suspected to be causitive factors; both riders were wearing helmets. Vista Man Identified as Fatal Accident Victim
Elvis Eric Mora of Vista has been identified as the victim killed in an auto accident on Route 78 in Oceanside last week. The Medical Examiner’s office said he died of blunt impact injuries to the head. Mora was wearing a seat belt at the time of the accident. He was the sole occupant of a 19999 Honda Prelude.

that the Davis family probably paid the mortgage on the new Palomar West hospital this month as I was a “guest” of theirs two weeks ago and now Scott. The combined insurance payments to the hospital will likely make a dent in the monthly obligation. ••••• While we’re making our medical rounds - I doff my chapeaux to the lovely Becky, wife of brilliant San Marcos attorney, Tony Abbott. Becky, whom I have dubbed “my favorite Jewish Irish Princess,” took a couple of bad falls, resulting in a couple of busted up ribs and some need for recuperative time. She was in hospital for nine days and Tony, bless his heart, stayed at the hospital - sleeping there to be close to Becky. Becky has finally been discharged and is now in a convalescent hospital for a few more days until she is ready to go back home.
We, Evelyn and I, had planned to go visit Becky on Sunday buy that was before we know of Scott’s condition at the hospital. We will have to take a rain-check and look forward to a chance to grab a sandwich with Tony and get caught up on all the latest. Hoping Becky comes home

soon! She’s a very special lady and Tony’s a special guy! ••••• We traveled to the stately manor of Kevin and Chris Camperell last Saturday for a farewell party for Paul and Claire Tullius. Paul was one of my favorite Kiwanians and I had high hopes for him becoming president of our Hidden Valley Kiwanis Club one day. Hard worker, dedicated, reliable, punctual . . . just a super person. But, they have family in Colorado and wanted to be near their kids and grandkids. So it was a bittersweet farewell, very sad to see them go but happy for their bright future with family. Have been in many beautiful homes but not many as pretty as Kevin and Chris’s home. Lovely furnishings, landscaped grounds so pretty that they could easily be dedicated as a city park . . . everything just spotless. Chris, as always, absolutely radiant and Kevin with his ever present smile. They were the perfect hosts to a group of mighty fine people.
All our best wishes to Paul and Claire. You will be missed! ••••• Also spent time at the Mission316 Church in San Marcos, with Pastor Sam

I was glad to know that our president visited Hiroshima and it brought some solace to the Japanese victims of the atom bomb explosion. I was distressed to hear that what used to be a high approval rating for President Truman giving orders to drop the bomb had now been reduced to a little over 30% approval. People forget or never knew history. I suppose in another generation or two, the people will demand that President Truman be censored and our country make a formal apology to Japan.
I well remember listening to the radio on that Sunday December 7, 1941, when I was at work, and hearing of the bombing at Pearl Harbor. I recall the horror we felt. What most people and we did not realize at the time was the magnitude of the simultaneous bombing attacks in other places. Six different places were bombed in the Philippines and two days later the Japanese waded ashore in six places to take over the Philippines. Dutch Indonesia and other islands were bombed or taken over and soon they controlled nearly all of the Southwestern Pacific and started bombing Australia.
We had the privilege of visiting Pearl Harbor in 1977, where 1000 sailors lie beneath the memorial. At the “Punch Bowl,” we saw the graves of 25,000 and the names inscribed on the memorial wall of 26,280 others missing in action or buried at sea. Wesley, my husband, found the name
of his dear buddy, Dwight Taylor, from high school days, who was killed on the Franklin and buried at sea.
In the Philippines, we saw where hundreds of civilians were killed by the Japanese. We visited Corregidor, the three square mile island at the entrance of Manila Bay. We saw the rusted batteries of guns and visited the museum that tells of the battles and how General Douglas MacArthur had to flee to Australia, saying, “I will return.” We looked across to the Bataan Peninsula, where one of our friends took part in the “death march.” We visited the Manila American Memorial Cemetery where we saw thousands of marble crosses and stood in awe as we looked at the Memorial panels inscribed with 36,279 names of those missing in action or buried at sea. We saw General Douglas MacArthur’s landing craft off the coast of Tacloban, Leyte, where he did return to the Philippines. It cost thousands of lives from Australia, the Pacific Islands, and across the Philippines before the country was retaken in March 1945.
We knew an elderly lady we called “Auntie,” who was in our home and came to the church where Wesley, my husband, preached when we taught at the Bible College in the Philippines. I heard her say several times, “I love the Americans, I saw your soldiers being shot down on our streets in
Manila when they tried to save our country, I love the Americans.”
The dropping of the atomic bomb was a horrific thing and we hope it never happens again, but taken in perspective, it saved many more lives and destruction than it took. The United States was planning an all out attack on Japan that was not carried out.
I had a Dutch friend who, with her family and many others, was in an internment camp in Indonesia. She said, “If they hadn’t dropped the bomb when they did, we all would have died of starvation.” That was true of prisoners in China, Japan and other places.
The Taylors, missionary friends in China, had four children who were interned in China with their whole school and two lady missionaries we knew. They were kept four years and those in the camp were concerned that the growing children had an inadequate diet. Our friend, Geneva Sayre, helped cook in the camp and said, “We saved every egg shell and crushed them real fine to put in the bread we baked to increase the intake of calcium.” The 1400 of those in the camp were released by paratroopers who dropped in on August 17. Our friend, Jake Deshazer, a Doolittle bombardier, who had been in prison and tortured in China since April 1942 felt he could not have lasted much longer when he was released August 20th.

We love Pastor Sam and his sermons. Down to earth, easy to understand, and thought provoking. Clever event for Father’s Day. After the service, Pastor Sam had arranged for about a dozen young folks to pass out bottles of “Dad’s Root Beer” to celebrate Father’s Day, along with “Slim Jim’s” as a snack.
While I’m not a Christian I absolutely love Pastor Sam and his Mission316 sermons. If you enjoy hearing a stimulating message that makes you think, regardless of your religious persuasion, or lack thereof, I commend you to Pastor Sam.
They meet in San Marcos every Sunday at 10am. If you’d like to check out Pastor Sam and his church, they’re in the auditorium adjacent to the San Marcos City Hall.

Cochran was furious! Her ultimatum to Gen. Arnold was simple: militarize the WASP program – or shut it down. Cochran refused to be subordinate to Col. Oveta Hobby. As Cochran confided to a friend, “I will not serve under a woman who doesn’t know her ass from a propeller!” The once mighty WASP were officially dismantled on December 20, 1944. The end had finally come.
The official records of WASP achievements were sealed for decades after they were disbanded, further shrouding their true contributions. Their service records were marked and sealed as “Classified” or “Secret.” For all their mistreatment, and being disallowed veteran status in the service of their country, many went to the grave with an unfulfilled heart. But a grateful nation slowly began to change all of that. In 1977 the United States did an official ‘about face.’ America finally embraced these fly girls as true veterans under the G.I. Bill Improvement Act. Then, in 1979, all WASP were issued official Honorable Discharges. In 1984, each WASP was awarded the World War II Victory Medal. And six years ago today, they were given the highest civilian award by the U.S. Congress – the Congressional Gold Medal. (Note: the Presidential Medal of Freedom is the highest civilian award given by the president. The Congressional Gold Medal is the highest award given by congress. ) There are fewer Congressional Gold Medals awarded than the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
just last month in their latest gathering on May 28, 2016, only 18 WASP survivors made it to their annual reunion at Avenger Field, in Sweetwater, Texas. Their precious numbers are vanishing with the years. Soon, there will be none. None to hear us say, “We love you.”
But, it was her flying that set her free. “When I was in the sky, I had the whole sky before me. There were no limits to where I could go,” she said with a gentle smile. No truer words. No truer reward. Tucker passed away shortly after receiving her Congressional Gold Medal. Once more, she has been set free.
When these Congressional Gold Medals were handed out at the nation’s capitol in 2010, only 170 WASP were present to receive their prestigious awards. At their reunion last year on May 23, 2015, only 21 WASP survivors were present. And

3. If a word is misspelled in the dictionary, How would we ever know? 4. If Webster wrote the first dictionary, where did he find the words? 5. Why do we say something is out
It was a golden moment before the eyes of the world. A shining achievement, by an elite corps of pioneering women, was finally officially acknowledged by a grateful country. It was a long time coming. Most of the WASP never made it to the steps of the nation’s capitol six years ago, in 2010. But, who is to say that these pioneers of the sky did not already receive their greatest reward before they passed on? Former WASP, Marcella Tucker, never made it to those Capitol steps that milestone day. The 90-year-old former WASP from San Jose, California, was too weak from pneumonia to make the long journey. She was unable to join her sisters, all whom once rained thunder from the skies, together. The journey was something she could easily have done as a trail-blazing, heroic WASP, in her greener years, when she was still exploring the Wild Blue Yonder. But, no matter. The Congressional Gold Medal did, finally, come to her in the mail, three weeks later. She loved it. She cradled it. She kissed it.

We visited Hiroshima where the first bomb was dropped on August 6, 1945, but in spite of the deaths which included 20,000 Korean forced workers, Japan refused to surrender. Three days later a second bomb was dropped on Nagasaki (30,000 Koreans were killed there) and on August 10th Japan agreed to surrender.
It was with a sense of sadness that we strolled through the Peace Memorial Park and gazed at the remaining gutted building in Hiroshima. We were with our two American Japanese friends, but we were the only ones who looked American. As we entered the museum of the bombing and its after effects, we noticed a tour group of Junior High girls going in. We wondered how we would be perceived. When we came out, we were besieged by the girls who wanted our autograph. Our bemused friends looked on from the side and took our picture! Written by Evelyn Memorial Day, 2016
Editor’s Note: Though Memorial Day 2016 has come and gone, we felt this memoir written by Ms. Keller touched on a number of areas that are often forgotten by the general public, both contemporary and older. It is good to be reminded of those days of pain and suffering, endured so that we might enjoy the life we do today.

Historically Speaking by Tom Morrow
"Trail of Tears"
The removal of the Cherokee Nation from their native lands in Georgia, Tennessee, North Carolina and Alabama was one of the saddest episodes in American history.
President Andrew Jackson gets much of the blame, but he is only the historical face on this Indian removal from the South to the Middle Southwest. In the late 1830s, Congress passed the "Indian Removal Act." The Cherokees, which notably had the only written language and considered by the white man to be the most civilized among the Native Americans, fought the constitutionality of the legislation, taking their case all the way to the Supreme Court. The effort failed, and in 1838, the Federal government began removing the Cherokees to the "Indian Territory" in what is today Oklahoma.
President Jackson ordered Gen. Winfield Scott to lead 7,000 troops, removing the Indians from their native lands. The Cherokees were promised money, livestock, and various provisions and tools. Some of the Indians refused to go and took
off to hide in the mountains of North Carolina, the swamps of Georgia, and other places too inhospitable for white men. Others were allowed to stay by taking U.S. citizenship, but in the winter of 1838-39, 15,000 Cherokees were marched some 1,000 miles through Tennessee, Kentucky, Illinois, Missouri, and Arkansas into the forbidding Indian Territory. Many of the Cherokees walked the entire distance without footwear and skimpy clothing. Losses were estimated at more than 4,000. They died mostly from disease, exposure, exhaustion, and hunger.
Once they arrived many of the government's promises went unfulfilled, as was the case with other Indian nations across the continent. But the Cherokee and many other Native American nations got some solace in that oil was discovered on their lands in Oklahoma. Of course, the Whites wanted it back, but that didn't happen in many cases. Today, most Native Americans are getting a portion of sweet revenge through their reservation casinos. Slowly but surely they are getting a return on their losses, thousands of dollars at a time. That sad "removal" of the Cherokees has mostly been forgotten by Americans and all but lost in our history, but not by the Native Americans. History labels this episode the "Trail of Tears," but the Cherokees call it the "Trail Where They Cried." Historic Memory --In September 1955 -- Rather than make him a martyr through trial and punishment, long-time Argentinean dictator Juan Peron was sent in exile to Paraguay by the military. Peron had been hiding out on a Paraguayan gunboat anchored in Buenos Aires harbor after a four-day old revolution ousted him from power.
Also in September 1955, teen idol James Dean was killed in a car crash shortly after he had finished filming the epic movie "Giant." His Porsche Spider careened off the highway as he traveled north on Highway 101 near Paso Robles.

love. Something that makes you happy. Happiness is more important than money. A man making $150,000 a year, with expenses, may not, in fact, be happy - because he’s not doing something he truly loves. Meanwhile, an auto mechanic who makes $45,000-50,000 a year but loves his work - is going to be much happier in his life.
My counsel would be, “don't educate your children to be rich. Educate them to be Happy. So when they grow up they will know the value of things not the price.”
It is, of course, entirely possible to get involved in a business, job, or profession that makes you both very happy and very rich. I know several people like this. The key, however, is that the lust for money is not what drove them to be successful. They are successful because they do what they do well . . . and they love it! ••••• Attended a belated birthday party for our 5-year-old granddaughter, Alex, on Saturday. Son, Kenny, held it at his place. Lots of food, presents, a swim party . . . and good people. One visitor, Jessie, broght his
Jack Russell terrier, which is blind in both eyes. Dietary problems contributed to, if not fcaused the blindness. “Cosmo” is well loved and cared for.
I had to suppress a chuckle when Alex came up to me as I was petting Cosmo. She started petting him and looked at me and said, “Tampaw, Cosmo is blindfolded.” No, I didn’t correct her.

I, too, grew up in the midwest and remember well not only he midwestern heat but the humidity (and skeeters, and chiggers).
Heat and humidity is a real killer. Heat I can handle, humidity, no thanks.
Humidity in San Diego, however, is nothing like midwestern humidity. We get 40-50-60% humidity and the sky begins to ball. Try humitidy of 80-85-90% or higher, with temps from 85 to 100. Tough, tough weather.

The featured event was the presentation of the Club’s “Live Your Dream” Award to Vicki Gonzalez of Escondido, a single mother who lost her first child, Jonathan, to neuroblastoma cancer in 2010 when he was only 4 years old. As presenter Judy Gregorie explained, the Live Your Dream award assists women like Vicki who have overcome great obstacles and are the primary source of financial support for their families by giving them the resources they need to improve their education and employment prospects. Gonzalez, who has a young daughter to support, was awarded a $3000 cash award. “I understand that I may not be able to control everything that happens in my life, but what I can control is how I handle things and the choices I make,” said Vicki in her initial application. “Going through the hardship of my son’s suffering and his death made me grateful for the fact that I am alive, which is an opportunity Jonathan will never be able to experience. I live in his memory,” she said. Currently attending Palomar College, Vicki will be transferring to Cal State San Marcos in the fall of 2016 to pursue a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology, with her eventual goal to earn a Masters and Ph.D. and become a licensed Child Psychologist. She also becomes eligible to apply for additional cash awards at the Soroptimist District level. Over $11,000 was then distributed to four grant applicants: Boys and Girls Club of Vista for their “Smart Moves” program; Leap to Success for their “Leap to Confidence” program; Welcome Home Ministries for women transitioning from incarceration; and Casa de Amparo for their “Creating Future of Hope for Pregnant & Parenting Foster Youth” program. The Club’s Foundation, a separate entity established as a testamentary trust when long-time Soroptimist Lucille Strachan passed away in 1983, then awarded $5,000 each to graduate nursing students Christine Dukovich and Sasha Luecke. As presenter Runa Gunnars explained, the Foundation seeks women applicants who are pursuing graduate degrees with majors of English or medical science. Both are UCSD grads, pur-

Capital Improvements Coming to Escondido
Every year the City Council reviews and approves several types of budgets. The one I look forward to the most is the Capital Improvement Program (CIP) budget. In this document we summarize funding plans for investing in tangible projects within the City – things we all use, like roads, sidewalks, park equipment etc. Funding comes from a variety of Soroptimist International of Vista Charitable Fund board members pose with Foundation Awardees.

sources and is often restricted for use on specific things. For example, Community Development Block Grants (CDBG) money is federal grant money that can only be spent in areas with low median income. Developer Impact fees are collected when new building permits are issued and invested in community upgrades to absorb increased population from new development. Utility project upgrades are primarily funded by rate payers in the form of monthly water and sewer payments. Gas tax and Transnet funding is dedicated to
Catholic Widows/Widowers of North County – For twenty four years the Catholic Widows and Widowers of North County has been going strong.

Catholic widows and widowers that are interested in meeting new friends while enjoying interesting activities are invited to join the group.

Pastor Sam Brumit Mission 316, San Marcos Strawberries
So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness. Colossians 2:6-7. These verses remind me of strawberries.
Along the Amtrak/Metrolink route to Los Angeles, you see some strawberry fields. The first look is the small plants carefully spaced along the flat growing rows. The real start, though, is when the seeds (yes, those tiny seeds on the fruit) are carefully germinated in a warm location. Soon, the small, rooted plant is taken outdoors and begins to grow. It is built up and strengthened by sunlight, a little water, and tender care by the grower.
St. Paul probably wasn’t thinking about strawberries when he wrote these words to the Colossians, but he was thinking about gardening or far ming. And, he was thinking about the young believers in the church at Colosse. Strawberry plants face a lot of dangers: disease, bad weather, cloudy days. Too much of this and there will be no fruit, no strawberries. The church at Colosse faced dangers of their own. Wrong teaching, selfser ving leaders, mixed messages. Paul’s word to them was to stay the course. They had come to see Jesus Christ as their Lord and savior. Firmly rooted, they needed now to keep on, continue to live in him, so they could be built up and strengthened so that the result of their life, the fruit, would be overflowing. There’s still time for a bowl of good strawberries, a strawberry pie, or just picking a few off the buffet table. As you enjoy those strawberries, remember that God cares for you in the same manner that the grower carefully nurtures his plants to their full, overflowing, ripeness. And be thankful.

Paul & Nome Van Middlesworth, The Computer Factory
How to Build a Cheap Computer
In October of 2008 at a press conference the late Steve Jobs was asked why Apple did not compete with Dell and HP for the low end retail PC business. Jobs famously replied, "At Apple we don't know how to make a $500 computer that's not a piece of junk." A lot has changed in the ensuing eight years. Apple doesn’t build PCs any more, they buy them from China, but you still can’t buy one for $500. It is, however, possible to buy a Windows PC in the $500 price range that is not junk, but just barely. The low-end “junk” has dropped to the $300 to $400 range. “There are two basic sales channels for PCs, retail and corporate (enterprise). The retail PCs sold in “big box” stores come with Windows “Home” version preinstalled. Corporate PCs are purchased from distributors with Windows “Professional.” The IT (information technology)

professionals who guide corporations in the purchase of their PCs understand and specify levels of quality, reliability, value and performance. Corporate PCs cost more than retail but are better value because of their quality and reliability. Small business and home users who shop the “big box” stores are not IT professionals and often do not know how to judge quality, reliability, value and performance. They do understand price, so pricing is how Dell, HP, Lenovo and other major brands compete. The “big box” retailers use the low-end PCs to bait and switch users to the higher cost PCs. Retail PC makers are pressured to make them ever cheaper so they compensate by stuffing retail PCs with “bloatware," (paid ads from third party advertisers). The retailers then offer to remove the factory installed ads, pop-ups, banners, trial programs and links for a price. Retailers also enhance their margins on the lowend PCs with add-ons, services, service contracts and extended warranties.
um, multi-year warranty components like ASUS motherboards, lifetime RAM, three year CPUs etc.
By using different materials and processes, electronics component manufacturers can produce several “grades” of products from OEM (cheapest) to premium (most expensive). In addition some manufacturing processes yield several product “grades” from a single “batch.” This is accomplished through a sorting process in final QA and test. The “grade” of products like RAM, CPUs, hard drives and even motherboards can be determined by how well they do in final test. Those that pass all tests with high marks are “premium” grade and are packaged under the company logo and sold as “premium” with multi-year warranties. Those that pass QA at lower levels are des-
ignated as OEM or generic and sold to manufacturers or packaged under “economy” brand labels with minimal warranties. These are the parts in retail “bottom feeder” PCs.
Cheap retail PCs are almost never a bargain. Even OEM components without moving parts like RAM, CPUs and motherboards are more prone to heat stress failure than their premium counterparts. A business or home PC shopper looking to save money on a PC purchase is likely to be better off spending money on a reconditioned, quality PC than on a new “Cheapie.” Here at the Computer Factory we actually give “new” warranties (one year) on our own reconditioned, “trade-in” PCs.
The difference between a good quality corporate PC low quality retail PC is what’s inside. Retail PCs have the cheapest version of the Windows OS that allows Microsoft to control “updates.” With only single year warranties, retail PCs makers use low end motherboards, low rated power supplies and generic RAM, hard drives, optical drives, cases and fans. Their Intel and AMD CPU’s are OEM grade with limited warranties. Corporate PCs, like Computer Factory PCs, are built to “workstation standards.” That means using premi-

OK, relax, clear your mind and begin. 1. What do you put in a toaster?
Answer: 'bread.' If you said 'toast' give up now and do something else. Try not to hurt yourself. If you said, bread, go to Question 2. 2. Say 'silk' five times. Now spell 'silk.' What do cows drink?
Answer: Cows drink water. If you said 'milk,' don't attempt the next question. Your brain is over-stressed and may even overheat. Content yourself with reading more appropriate literature such as Auto World. However, if you said 'water', proceed to question 3.
3. If a red house is made from red bricks and a blue house is made from blue bricks and a pink house is made from pink bricks and a black house is made from black bricks, what is a green house made from?
Answer: Greenhouses are made from glass. If you said 'green bricks,' why are you still reading??? If you said 'glass,' go on to Question 4.

In Swindon, 2 people get off and 4 get on. In Cardiff, 11 people get off and 16 people get on. In Swansea, 3 people get off and 5 people get on. In Carmathen, 6 people get off and 3 get on. You then arrive at Milford Haven. Without scrolling back to review, how old is the bus driver? Answer: Oh, for crying out loud! Don't you remember your own age? It was YOU driving the bus!
If you pass this along to your friends, pray they do better than you.

The petition requests authority to administer the estate under the Independent Administration of Estates Act. (This authority will allow the personal representative to take many actions without obtaining court approval. Before taking certain very important actions, however, the personal representative will be required to give notice to interested persons unless they have waived notice or consented to the proposed actions.) The independent administration authority will be granted unless an interested person files an objection to the petition and shows good cause why the court should not grant the authority. A hearing on the petition will be held in this court as follows: Date: 7/21/2016 Time: 1:30 p.m. Dept: PC-2 Address of court: Same as noted above. 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.

President Theodore Roosevelt
'In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American and nothing but an American ... There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag ... We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language ... and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.'

We will begin by diagnosing the problem. You tell us what's wrong, and we will not only confirm it, but also diagnose where the issue is stemming from.
In most cases, air conditioning problems stem back to low levels of refrigerant. Unfortunately, replacing the refrigerant will not be enough to fix the problem. If your refrigerant levels are low, we will need to determine why.
If it is because of a leak, we will need to determine where the leak is coming from before we can repair it. If there is no problem with your refrigerant levels, then we will move on to rule out other issues that could be causing your air conditioner to malfunction.
For the hot days that are sure to come... now's the time to get the jump on the air conditioning season and be ready for when the temps climb and climb and climb... you'll be enjoying air conditioned comfort.
