FICTION by Thomas Calabese

Mike Cooper spent his childhood at Camp Lejeune where his father served as a first sergeant in the Marine Corps. When orders came in for Pendleton, the family packed up and headed to the West Coast.

His mother, Carol obtained employment as a librarian assistant when they got to California. Mike had just turned fourteen and enrolled at El Camino High School. One year later Mike’s father was killed in a training accident at Twenty-nine Palms The Paper - 760.747.7119

Marine Corps training center. It was difficult for Mike, but it was especially devastating to his mother who wasn’t an emotionally strong woman. In fact she never recovered from the lost of her husband and eventually turned to prescription drugs to help deal with her depression. Mike was two months away from graduation when he awakened one morning and found his mother dead from a drug overdose, accidental or intentional, it was never determined. Mike stayed with a family of one of

his baseball teammates until he graduated then enlisted in the Marine Corps. He had been in five years and at one time thought about making a career out the Corps like his father, but came to realize that the military life was not the future he envisioned for himself.

A church in Vista, California in cooperation with the USO participated in a program where individuals or families could communicate with members of the military serving in combat zones. Mike figured that he had nothing to lose when he picked a

family’s name off a list posted on his unit’s bulletin board and sent them a letter. It had nothing personal in it just basically who he was and what he did in the Marine Corps. Mike began to share more about himself with the Regan family as time passed. He was embarrassed to admit to how much he looked forward to mail call. Sometimes he would take their correspondence to a secluded place because he didn’t want his fellow Marines to see him get emotional.

Six months into his deployment in Afghanistan Mike rescued a homeless mongrel he found scavenging for food in one of the villages his unit was moving through. Rescue might not be the right explanation for all that Mike did was give the dog two pieces of beef jerky, stroked his head then boarded a truck and returned to his firebase. Two days later, his unit moved to another camp fifty miles away. Imagine Mike’s surprise when he saw the dog sitting outside the new base as his squad left on his patrol.

When the dog began barking incessantly, his squad stopped and got into their defensive positions. The dog then faced east. It was at that particular moment that the enemy realized that there was no chance for a surprise attack so they opened fire from their position. If Mike’s squad had proceeded another one hundred yards down a ravine they would be caught in a murderous crossfire, but at this distance the enemy fighters were at a distinct disadvantage. The Taliban fighters were eventually killed as other Marine units were able to reinforce Mike’s squad. After the encounter the dog ran over to Mike and jumped into his arms. From that time on Mike and Lebo were inseparable. Lebo was the name Mike gave his canine friend. He was named after his former squad leader Larry Lebo who was nominated for the Congressional Medal of Honor

Give Us This Day Our Daily Chuckle This week, a compendium of wit, wisdom and neat stuff you can tell at parties. Enjoy! The Secretary

One day the directors of a Chicago finance company were called in to a chairman's office until only the newest, most junior executive was left sitting nervously outside. Finally it was his turn to be summoned.

He entered the office to find the chairman and other eight directors seated solemnly around a table. Suddenly the chairman turned to the young man and asked: “Have you ever slept with Miss Foyt, my secretary?” “No, certainly not.”

“Are you absolutely sure? persisted the chairman.

after he threw himself on a grenade, saving the lives of Mike and several other Marines. Bill Regan owned and operated a small and profitable cabinet and woodworking shop. Bill had three employees, two carpenters who helped in the shop and with installations. The office was handled by his aunt. She took care of all the paperwork including billing and office expenses.

Sarah Regan was a pharmaceutical sales representative. She had been with the mid size company for seven years. Her immediate supervisor was an easy going gentleman who gave Sarah a lot of leeway to conduct business and never micro-managed her. Things changed dramatically when her supervisor accepted a position with another company and a woman was hired to take his place. Jennifer Regan was a straight A student and excellent athlete and in her last year of high school. She always received several letters of interest from colleges and universities.

James Regan was in middle school. Over the past few months, he began to notice that he didn’t have the level of energy as he used to. He’d be playing a game with his friends and would have to stop and rest while they were kept going. James also found it more difficult to focus on his schoolwork. He didn’t say anything to his parents because they were so busy with their own problems. He would just have to work harder. In one month Mike would be state-

“Absolutely. I've never laid a finger on her.” “You'd swear to that on a stack of bibles?”

side. The Regan family had extended an invitation to join them for Sunday dinner upon his return after to Camp Pendleton. Mike made arrangements through the War Zone Animal Rescue Mission to ship Lebo back to the states and happily paid the four thousand dollar fee. He told his squad mates that he would have paid much more if asked. Bill Regan returned home after work and saw his daughter Jennifer doing her homework at the kitchen table. “Hey honey, how was your day?”

“Alright, what can you say about school that hasn’t been said a thousand times before.” Jennifer responded.“It doesn’t lend itself to creative description.” “I vaguely remember how that was.” Bill smiled. “Don’t let negativity distort your sunny disposition. “There’s a message on the phone for you, the guy doesn’t sound like he has a sunny disposition.” Bill pressed the play button.

“This is Bob from Escondido Lumber Supply. I wouldn’t have to call you at home if you had the courtesy to return my phone calls…I repeat, call me!”

Gwen Terkel didn’t plan on staying at this job any longer than her previous positions. She had a five year plan to be working at the corporate headquarters and the best way to accomplish that goal was to push employees out of their comfort zone at every

office she was assigned. There was a trick that Gwen liked to use and found to be successful in the past. She would take the most productive and likable employee then micromanage and harass that person relentlessly. The other less productive employees would think that if the best employee in the office was having all this trouble, they had better do everything in their power to avoid being the next recipient of her wrath. After reviewing the personnel files, Gwen decided that Sarah Regan would be her target. The fact that Sarah Regan was a working mother would make it all that more pleasurable. She hated women who tried to have it all. She had to make a choice, why shouldn’t they. Jennifer Regan didn’t like Roger Henderson. He was not only arrogant, but had a mean streak in him. The fact that he was one of the better athletes in school gave him a sense of entitlement and many naive girls fell prey to his charms and good looks. Jennifer was too smart and made it emphatically clear to Roger that she was not interested in going out with him, however Roger was not the kind of boy that could accept taking no for an answer. He eventually grew to hate Jennifer and wanted to make her suffer. The principal of Grove Ranch middle school called Jimmy Regan into his office. “You used to be a good student, but

Little Thelma came home from first grade and told her father that they had learned about the history of Valentine's Day. And, "Since Valentine's Day is for a Christian saint and we're Jewish," she asked, "will God get mad at me for giving someone a valentine?" Thelma's father thought a bit then said "No, I don't think God would get mad. Who do you want to give a valentine to?" "The ISIS terrorists," she said.

"Why the ISIS terrorists?" her father asked in shock.

"Well," she said, "I thought that if a little American Jewish girl could have enough love to give the terrorists a valentine, they might start to think that maybe we're not all bad, and maybe start loving people a little bit.

And if other kids saw what I did and then they sent valentines to the terrorists, they'd love everyone a lot. And then they'd start going all over the place telling everyone how much they loved us and how they

Free Micro-chipping Drive-Thru Event on Saturday - The San Diego Humane Society is participating in Hip To Chip!, a free micro-chipping event on Saturday, June 27th, am to noon, organized by members of the San Diego Rescue Coalition. Pet parents must make an appointing in advance before driving up to any of the participating sites, which includes Escondido, Oceanside and San Diego, as well as Ramona, Imperial Beach, Chula Vista and El Cajon. Details, including specific addresses and Spanish translation, can be found at sdhumane.org/hip-to-chip. Micro-chipping is permanent pet identification. The process is safe, simple, permanent and designed to quickly identify lost pets and reunite them with their owners. The micro-chip, about the size of a grain of rice (12mm), is injected beneath the surface of the pet's skin between the shoulder blades, similar to a routine shot, takes a few seconds, and your pet will not react any more than it would to a vaccination. Micro-chipping video and photos can be downloaded at https://bit.ly/3hnmYOE. Call the San Diego Humane Society at 619.299.7012.

lately you haven’t been paying attention in class. Your teachers say that you seem distracted. Is there a problem you’d like to talk to me about?” “No sir, I’ll just have to work harder, I promise.” Jimmy said.

“I’ll give you a few weeks and if I don’t get a favorable report from your teachers then I’ll have to contact your parents.” “Thank you, sir.” Jimmy responded and left the office.

Mike was walking with Corporals Zwicker and Pelletier just before sunset. Lebo was right by his side when they noticed Afghan policemen acting nervously, his eyes were darting about and his movements were frenetic, as if he was on drugs. Lebo picked up on the nervous energy, barked, and then ran toward the Afghan policemen just as Mike saw the man raise his automatic weapon. Lebo was directly in the line of fire so Mike took off at a full sprint then dove to protect his beloved dog. The Afghan policeman opened fire just as Mike left his feet and was killed instantly as a bullet went through his heart. He landed on Lebo who had been protected from the gunfire and was unharmed. Mike’s two squad members quickly overwhelmed the Afghan policemen and beat him to death with their bare hands. As Mike lay on top of Lebo, his spirit trans-

ferred from his body to Lebo. When Mike’s body was pulled away, his squad members were momentarily blinded by a bright light that seemed to shoot skyward from Mike’s chest.

The Regans were eating dinner when the phone rang. It was Corporal Zwicker. Bill Regan looked at caller I.D. It had a code that he didn’t recognize. “Hello.”

“Is this the Regan family?” Corporal Zwicker asked. “May I ask who is calling?”

“This is Corporal Guy Zwicker… I was a friend of Mike Cooper.” Bill Regan feared the worst. “Was?”

“Mike was killed yesterday. I found your contact info as we were packing up his personal gear.”

Sarah called to her husband. “Who’s on the phone?”

Bill was so choked up with emotion that he could hardly speak. Sarah immediately rushed over. Bill handed her the phone.

“Who is this?” Sarah asked “Corporal Zwicker, Ma’am.”

Sarah immediately knew what had upset her husband. They put Corporal Zwicker on the

"Lilac" Confusion Answered in New History Q&A - Questions about two local projects, both of which have the word "Lilac" in their name, the now-closed but much loved Bell Gardens, and the DuPont dynasty are featured in this week's question-and-answer installment from the Valley Center History Museum. While the museum is temporarily closed, inquiries are being accepted by mail, email, and telephone with some responses published in this space. Some questions were asked at a recent virtual speaking engagement. Here is Part 9 in the series. All data is from the Valley Center Historical Society.

I've been reading about and getting email messages about what I think may be two different projects, both named Lilac. Is this the same development? Answer: Lilac Ranch (aka Rancho Lilac) and Lilac Hills Ranch are two separate and distinct projects. Lilac Ranch is an historic property dating to 1865. The 900-acre site on Lilac Road was about to be awarded to San Diego Habitat Conservancy as permanent caretaker when a vote was postponed. The property transfer is currently on hold. Lilac Hills Ranch is a 608-acre parcel at the far western end of Valley Center. This is proposed 1,764-home community with accompanying retail. The term Lilac Hills is a marketing phrase; there is no geographic area by that name. It was placed on the June 24 agenda of the Board of Supervisors. It was a sad day when Bell Gardens shut down. I loved taking my grandkids there, and they especially enjoyed the train ride

speaker phone so that Jennifer and Jimmy could hear about the Marine that they never met, especially his last moments.

“I can’t stay on the phone very long, but I needed to tell you something, Mike paid to have his dog shipped back. Since he didn’t have any family, would you want to take him? If you don’t, I think I can talk my parents into taking him. He’s a special pooch. Mike spoke so highly of your family I know he would want you to have first choice.”

For a split second, Sarah thought about saying no, but her instincts wouldn’t let that happen. “Yeah, yeah… we’ll take him.” She struggled to get the words out.

Over the next three weeks things seemed to go from bad to worse for the Regan family. After receiving several certified letters, Bill confronted his aunt who broke down and tearfully admitted that she had been embezzling money for almost two years to feed her growing addiction to gambling. Bill still had not been able to determine an exact amount of his losses but it was in the tens of thousands. He terminated his aunt’s employment and immediately took over her duties. He had not yet decided whether to file a criminal complaint against her.

Gwen Terkel had been pushing Sarah Regan, questioning her professionalism in front of her co-workers, asking her to work late or re-do reports over minor errors. She knew it was

around the property. Whatever happened to the train?

Answer: Bell Gardens, a popular working farm and agricultural theme park spanning 115 acres, closed its gates in 2003. It had been created by the late taco king Glen Bell, Jr. The train ride covered two miles of the idyllic farm in about 15 minutes. The original train was built about 1960 as part of a 27-acre employee park at Convair General Dynamics in Kearny Mesa. Last we heard about the popular train it was one of the family attractions at Branson, Missouri. Most of the out-buildings, including the car barn, remain standing along Cole Grade Road. I am part of the DuPont family and live in [East Coast city] and understand a couple of my relations lived in your area. What can you tell me about them? Answer: The DuPont family is one of America's most prominent and influential industrial families. Two DuPont relations apparently did live here. Cowboy actor Randolph Scott lived in Valley Center and was married to Marie DuPont, a horse breeder, and great-granddaughter of French-American chemist E.I. du Pont, founder of the company. Charles E. DuPont lived in Pauma Valley. In 1939, Scott established and lived at a 486-acre ranch on Woods Valley Road. Dupont built a modern custom home in the late 1970s on Pauma Valley Road. (Note: a more complete response was provided to the DuPont family member.)

just a matter of time before Sarah would either quit or do anything that would present an opportunity where she could be terminated for cause. Gwen was pleased with herself.

The postings of anonymous e-mails began appearing on a regular basis. A devious individual was taking innocent photos of Jennifer that were available in the school yearbook or newspaper and used a software program to switch her head with other women’s indecent photos. The individual then posted the photos online with derogatory and vulgar captions. It was a vile and evil thing to do. Jimmy Regan was doing everything he could to be a more attentive student like he promised his principal, but the harder he tried, the worse things seemed to get. He knew it would only be a matter of time before the school contacted his parents. He dreaded that moment. Jimmy felt like a failure. Although the members of the Regan family shared some general details of their personal struggles with each other, they chose to diminish the seriousness of the situation, hoping to protect those they loved. This was the kind of family that the Regan was, always placing the welfare of each other above their own.

The Paper • Page 4 • June 25, 2020 Suspect armed with a crow bar is shot by police officer

On June 19th, 2020, at about 3:37 a.m., Escondido Police Officers responded to a restraining order violation occurring in the 300 block of Park Avenue. The reporting party told Escondido Police and Fire Communications that her exhusband, 44 year old Rosendo Sandoval Quezada of Escondido, was at her residence in violation of a restraining order. She identified her ex-husband and gave a description of his vehicle.

At about 03:45 a.m., an EPD officer located the suspect’s vehicle near the intersection of Washington Ave and Broadway and initiated a traffic stop. The suspect exited his vehicle holding a 3-foot long crow bar and ran toward the officer. The officer fired several times at the suspect striking him in the abdomen. Officers at the scene provided first aid to the suspect prior to Escondido Fire Dept. personnel arriving. The suspect was transported to Palomar Hospital by EFD paramedics for additional medical treatment. The officer was not injured during the incident.

The investigation is on-going and additional details will be released as they become available.

Reported Death at an Apartment Leads to a Homicide Arrest

On June 16, at 11:23 a.m., the City of Carlsbad Police Department received a 911 call about a death that occurred in an apartment in the 2500 block of West Ranch Street in Carlsbad. Upon arrival, officers located a 30 year-old deceased female.

Following an initial investigation, Brehon Quigley, a 44 year-old male co-occupant of the apartment was arrested and booked into the Vista Detention Facility on one count of homicide. He is being held without bail.

The investigation into what occurred and why is ongoing. No additional information is being released at this time. The identification of the victim is being withheld pending notification of the next of kin by the San Diego County Medical Examiner’s Office.

And so it came to pass . . lyle and Mary celebrated last Friday night for that day 60 years ago when they both said "I do." We decided to take my not-somuch-any more child ex-bride, Mary, out for dinner to celebrate the occasion.

Sadly, I noted long lines at both McDonald's and Burger King so decided to take her to a rather upscale restaurant in downtown Escondido, Hunsaker @ Vincent's,113 W. Grand. It's an intimate and elegant restaurant with fine dining but still with a somewhat casual air about it. Wait staff is attentive, menu is simple,

I ordered Duck L'Orange, $28, Mary ordered (or I ordered for her) stir-fried vegetables and pork belly, $18. We also ordered a bottle of Riesling wine, $26. I wasn't going to order bread but Mary said she'd like some so I ordered bread. Best $2 I ever spent.

They bring you a plate with a small loaf of finely sliced bread, several dinner rolls and three plates of cold, molded butter. One plate of molded butter had an embedded pocket filled with tomato jam, the second with a pocket filled with honey, and the third plate of molded butter was infused with Himalayan sauce, which I had never had before. One of the problems with fine restaurants is their bread and rolls. They are so damned good you can't stop and wind up eating all of it and it tends to fill you up so you are unable to finish eating your entree'. And so it was this night.

A cellphone video of the incident was released on June 12, which depicts two Carlsbad Police officers tase and arrest Marcel CoxHarshaw, 27, of San Diego. The video was shared on social media and quickly garnered local attention. Carlsbad Assistant Police Chief Mickey Williams provided further information on the arrest, walking through body camera footage and answering questions.

As described on the City of Carlsbad’s incident timeline, Williams confirmed Carlsbad Fire Department EMT’s were dispatched to the corner of Ponto Road and Carlsbad Boulevard at 8:48 p.m. to check on a man that was reported “laying face down near the road, possibly unconscious.” The Fire Department arrived several minutes before law enforcement to “keep the peace and allow the fire department to treat the person, making sure everyone stayed safe,” Williams said.

However, Williams said the subject was not cooperative with EMTs upon their arrival.

The suspect raises his voice and appears to step closer to the responding EMTs.

As I wrote this on a Saturday afternoon, Mary had heated up my leftover Duck L'Orange and that was my lunch for today. I had every intention of letting eldest son, Scott, have my Duck L'Orange but it was lunchtime and he slept too late today. His loss. My gain. He'll learn. Total bill came to $90.72 and with a $20 bill as a tip our total investment in a perfect evening came to $110.72. Not bad for celebrating a wedding that took place 60 years ago.

Technically, Mary and I are still divorced . . . so it might seem odd for a divorced couple to celebrate a 60th wedding anniversary . . . but as she has dementia, even though she is a high functioning dementia patient, I am her primary caregiver . . . we live together, we still laugh, joke, tease and love each other . . and there are those who think we are newlyweds.

Lebo Cont. from Page 3 Diego airport was a quiet one. Bill Regan drove in silence as he couldn’t keep his mind off business and which bills that he needed to pay now and which ones could be put off a little longer. Sarah knew that she had to keep her job, no matter how hostile the work environment had become. Her family needed her income more than ever. Jennifer was embarrassed to tell her parents about the obscene photos on the internet. Jimmy could barely keep his eyes open, he was so tired. By the time they reached the cargo terminal at San Diego airport it was just after dark. Bill Regan showed the guard at the gate his paperwork.

“Just follow the signs to incoming freight.” The guard instructed.

The Regans followed the baggage handler to a place where Lebo was being held. When they entered through a doorway a warm yellow light illuminated the area. “I’ve never seen that before. Of course nobody tells me anything.”

The baggage handler located the animal crate with Lebo in it. “Here it is.”

The Regans looked inside the crate and Lebo seemed to be smiling back at them. Lebo was a blue Thai

Mr. Davis, Mustang Sally is the greatest story, so far this year and the past year, ever told.

Mr. Calabrese made a detailed story about Sally, Mr Stewart and the Mustang short and to the point. I was emotional throughout the whole reading. I read it a second time a week later and it was like I was reading for the first time. So interesting to know of a young girl that stayed on track and became a decorated great pilot, and the great Mr. Stewart influenced her until he passed away and even after. I think Mr. Gomez and Mr. Calabrese will be competing with storytelling in the future. /s/ Angelo Caruso San Marcos

Ridgeback with amber eyes.

“Is he smiling?” Jimmy asked.

“It sure seems that way.” Sarah answered.

When they got to their vehicle, Bill prepared to lift the animal crate into the back of the SUV. “Why don’t we let him out of the crate, I don’t think he’s vicious.” Jennifer said. “He can sit in back with Jimmy and me.” Bill looked inside the crate. “You’re not vicious, are you?” Lebo shook his head from side to side and barked once. “There’s your answer, dad.” Jimmy smiled. Lebo sat between Jennifer and Jimmy as the family drove north on Interstate Five.

“Got any preference on the music, Lebo.” Bill joked/ Lebo jumped over to the front seat, hit the dial on the radio then leaped back. The song, “Who let the dogs out” began playing on the radio. The Regan family looked at each other in amazement. The mood in the vehicle was radically different on the way home. Each member of the Regan family was engulfed with a feeling of euphoria and contentment. What seemed insurmountable earlier was hardly worth a second thought now. When they got home, they showed Lebo his dog bed, his bowl of water and food in the garage then Sarah opened the back door and Lebo went outside and deliberately walked the perimeter of the backyard. “That is one smart dog.” Sarah observed.

When Lebo came back inside, Jennifer pulled a collar out of a Petco bag and placed it around his neck. She adjusted it so it fit just right. She read the tag. “Lebo, 760 555-3410.” Bill Regan locked the doors in the house as it was his nightly custom then went back to check on Lebo one more time before going upstairs. “See you in the morning.” Lebo was sitting up. He raised his paw to his head and it seemed like he saluted. “At ease, boy,” Bill Regan said, and walked upstairs.

Lebo walked over to the corner of the room and looked out the window. There was a faint reflective image of Mike Cooper in it. His ears perked up when he sensed something outside. Lebo walked over to the sliding door, unlatched it and pushed it open with his nose. When he got outside, he pushed it to the close position; the latch fell into the lock position.

Lebo jumped the fence and began running east for several miles until he stopped in front of a one story home on Hollyhill Road. He walked to the back of the house and saw two men sitting at the kitchen table. He ran and jumped through the sliding glass door and shattered it into a thousand pieces. Lebo viciously attacked the two men until they ran out of the

house, bloodied and screaming for help.

It was six A.M. in the morning when Bill walked downstairs. He immediately went over to where Lebo was supposed to besleeping, but he was gone! Bill frantically searched throughout the house but could not find the dog. He eventually woke up the family and everyone began searching the house then repeated the process several more times before finally accepting the fact that Lebo was gone. “All the doors and windows are closed. There’s no way he could have gotten out.” Bill commented. “I just don’t understand it.”

Bill and Sarah did not go to work and Jennifer and Jimmy did not go to school. They chose instead to spend the day looking for Lebo. At the end of the day when they returned home with no Lebo, the family was even more depressed than normal.

Jimmy turned on the television. A news report was airing. The family was so preoccupied that they didn’t even look at the screen. If they had they would have seen Lebo in the background with a little girl. “We don’t have all the details yet, but what do we know is that six year old Mia Duckworth was taken from her home in Rancho Santa Fe yesterday evening, the time frame seems to be between six and ten p.m. Robert Duckworth is a multibillionaire real estate developer and investor. He received a demand from the kidnappers around midnight and immediately called the F.B.I. This is not confirmed, but we heard the ransom amount was ten million. We’ve also heard that a stray dog jumped through a glass window, attacked the two kidnappers and lead the girl to safety.” The news reporter said. “We will continue to update you as more information becomes available.” Ten minutes later, the phone rang in the Regan home. Sarah looked at the caller I.D. It read F.B.I. “Hello.”

“Do you have a dog named Lebo?”

“Yes we do.” Sarah replied. “Is he alright?”

“There are two agents waiting at your front door.” The F.B.I. agent said. “Please go with them.”

The Regans were brought to a home in the hills of Vista, California. There were at least fifty law enforcement personnel from various agencies in the area. Red lights were flashing and yellow crime tape was placed around the area.

Agent Molson immediately rushed over to the car and confronted Bill Regan. “What do you know about this abduction?” “What abduction? What is going on?” Robert Duckworth rushed over. “How did you know where my daughter was being held?”

“Can someone please explain what is going on?” Sarah asked. “Your dog rescued my daughter. How did you know where she was being held?” Robert Duckworth demanded.

“We just picked up Lebo yesterday evening from the airport. That was the first time we ever saw him. We brought him home, went to bed and when we woke up he was gone.” Bill answered. “If you don’t believe me, check with the airline, they’ll tell you what time we were down at the cargo terminal.”

Lebo ran over followed by Mia Duckworth. After verifying that the Regans were at the airport, everybody was even more confused than before “I’m sorry if I came on a little strong.” Robert Duckworth apologized. “I hope you can understand how I was feeling.”

“Absolutely, the main thing is that your daughter is safe.” Sarah replied. Agent Molson sat in his vehicle and called his supervisor. “The Regans have an airtight alibi. There’s something strange about this whole damn situation. I’m not giving up. There’s always an answer if you look hard enough.” Agent Molson disconnected and when he looked in the rear view mirror he saw Lebo sitting in the backseat. “How did you get back there?” Mike Cooper’s voice seemed to come from the radio speaker. “You need to lighten up. Remember what the doctor told you about keeping your blood pressure under control.”

Agent Molson blinked and shook his head and when he looked again Lebo was gone.

As the Regans drove off, Robert Duckworth turned to the man next to him. “Find out everything about that family.” On the way home, Jimmy Regan became sick. “I don’t feel so good.” and passed out.

Bill immediately drove to Tri City Hospital Emergency. Sarah went into the treatment room with Jimmy while Bill waited in the lobby and Jennifer stayed in the car with Lebo. Three hours passed before Doctor Boyington returned with blood test results. “There seemed to be some abnormalities in your son’s blood work. I’m going to refer this information with my diagnosis to your primary care physician. I think he will want to do a few more tests.” “Is it serious?” Sarah asked.

“Let’s not go there yet.” Doctor Boyington answered.

After the Regans left the hospital, Doctor Boyington turned to the nurse.”That boy has got leukemia

and it’s in an advance stage, but that is the kind of news that should come from a family physician not an emergency room doctor.” When they got home, Jennifer helped her brother up the stairs to his room. In a matter of a few minutes Jimmy was sound asleep. Bill embraced his wife. “All we can do is say a prayer and hope for the best.”

The family went up to their rooms and Lebo went over to his dog bed and laid down. In the middle of the night Lebo got up and went up to Jimmy’s room. He jumped up on the bed and laid next to the small boy with his right paw on Jimmy’s head. There was a faint glow in the room. Bill awakened at five a.m. the next morning. He went downstairs to put the coffee on as was his usual custom. He was completely surprised to see Jimmy sitting at the kitchen table and eating a big bowl of cereal. “What are you doing? You’re supposed to be in bed.” “I couldn’t sleep and I was really hungry too.’ Jimmy smiled.

“Sarah! Jennifer! Come down here.” The family stood in amazement as they watched Jimmy looking normal. Sarah walked over and looked at Jimmy. “Are you sure you feel alright?” “Sure I’m sure. Can I have some scrambled eggs?”

The phone rang and Jennifer answered it. She listened for a minute then replied. “I’ll tell them.” Jennifer turned to her parents. “That was Doctor Bailey; he says you need to immediately bring Jimmy to his office.”

When Jennifer awakened the next morning, the first thing she did was open her laptop to see if there were any more postings on the internet about her. Her fears were confirmed. The newest comments and photos were even more vile and vulgar than the previous ones. Jennifer burst out in tears and ran into the bathroom. Lebo jumped up on the bed and began hitting keys with his paws. When he was done, he had forwarded the postings to the school district and the F.B.I.

Four hours after arriving at the medical office, Doctor Bailey looked baffled as he stared at the energetic young boy before him. “I don’t understand.”

“What’s wrong?” Sarah smiled.

“Nothing’s wrong. Jimmy is completely healthy.” “That’s good news.”

Minerva Scholarship: Helping Young Women Achieve Their Goals

One of my passions in public service is encouraging young women to fulfill their life’s potential by taking full advantage of available educational opportunities. As Minority Leader and a member of the Legislative Women’s Caucus, I am happy to spread the word about the Minerva Scholarship program, established by the Women in California Leadership Foundation to educate, support and empower young women and girls. The Foundation is committed to providing select young women of good character and demonstrated accomplishments with scholarships to help them achieve their objectives.

Applications for the Minerva Scholarships for the 2020-2021 academic year are now available. Up to 80 one-time $2,500 scholarships will be awarded, along with one $10,000 scholarship. All female California residents may apply for consideration. Applicants, either graduate or undergraduate, must be enrolled full-time in an accredited college for the 20202021 academic year, with a minimum GPA of 2.5. While the program is aimed at full-time students,

part-time students may apply if extenuating circumstances have resulted in less than a full class load, but an explanation must accompany the application. The scholarship program is also open to previous Minerva Scholarship winners.

The application process is simple. Just fill out the application cover sheet, along with a 250-word personal statement and include your resume, transcripts, two letters of recommendation and a copy of your college acceptance letter/enrollment verification letter. All applications and supporting documentation must be received by July 15, 2020. Late applications will not be accepted. For more information, please visit my website at: https://ad75.asmrc.org/ All Californians should be able to reach their full potential. I am proud to help ensure that our outstanding young women can take their places among the future leaders of this great state. Assembly Republican Leader Marie Waldron, R-Escondido, represents the 75th Assembly District in the California Legislature, which includes the communities of Bonsall, Escondido, Fallbrook, Hidden Meadows, Pala, Palomar Mountain, Pauma Valley, Rainbow, San Marcos, Temecula, Valley Center and Vista.

The Latest Openings

We continue to make progress in reopening San Diego County, while also keeping our communities safe. The latest openings include nail salons, facial salons, estheticians, skin care, cosmetology, massages, tattoo/piercing parlors and other personal services. Wedding ceremonies that follow the religious services guidance are also allowed. We continue to increase our testing capacity in San Diego County, with over 4,000 San Diegans tested every day. The rate continues to remain steady at 3% of those testing positive for COVID-19. At our next Board meeting, I’m going to be focusing on the following restrictions to be lifted while maintaining appropriate social distancing: churches with no capacity, gatherings outdoors, gatherings indoors, hotel meetings and conferences, wedding receptions, theme parks, and playgrounds. San Diegans have proven they’re willing to reopen safely, and I believe we should continue to give responsible people more freedom and flexibility.

I also teamed up with County Supervisor Kristin Gaspar to relax zoning requirements while businesses adapt to the new social distancing requirements to protect

their customers and employees. This includes temporarily allowing restaurants and other businesses in the unincorporated area to use parking and sidewalks as dining/commercial areas, allowing curbside pick-up, possibly allowing road closures in commercial districts to encourage additional pedestrian/commercial activity, and much more. We continue to make progress, San Diego County. Let’s keep the momentum! Supervisor Jim Desmond

Lebo Cont. from Page 6

“Do you mind coming back tomorrow? I liked Doctor Boyinton to be here.”

It was a clear warm Southern California morning and Robert Duckworth was sitting on the deck outside his private office and enjoying the panoramic view of the Pacific Ocean in Del Mar, California when his personal assistant Marsha Thissen entered.

“We scheduled the meeting with Tolaris Pharmaceuticals for three o’clock tomorrow. The final agreement is forty percent interest in the company for one hundred million dollars.” “I know.” Robert Duckworth smiled. “I try never to forget the numbers when my money is involved.” “Sorry, sir.” Marsha Thissen.

“Don’t apologize. I’d rather have you remind me of something I know than not mention it because you think its self evident and it slipped through the cracks.” “One more thing I have the report on the Regan family.”

“Good, I’ve been waiting for that.” Rober Duckworth immediately opened the file and began reading it.

When Jennifer arrived at school, Roger Henderson was being taken away by Oceanside Police and federal agents. “What’s going on?” Jennifer asked.

“They caught Henderson posting threats online.” Another student answered. Jennifer immediately knew that it was Roger Henderson who was behind the cyber bullying and the postings by the way he looked away when he walked past her. She breathed a sigh of relief. When Sarah returned to Doctor Bailey’s office, Doctor Boyinton was also there.

“We just want to make sure that there were no mix-ups with the lab reports. Is this the boy you examined at the emergency room? Doctor Bailey asked. “Yes it is.” Doctor Boyinton replied. “Is it alright to examine Jimmy?” “Absolutely.” Sarah replied.

Doctor Boyinton went through a preliminary examination of Jimmy then shook his head.

“I don’t have an explanation. He doesn’t have any of the same symptoms that he had a few days ago. It’s the same boy, but it’s not the same boy. Even if I was wrong, the lab couldn’t be wrong too. What are the chances of that happening?”

“When there is no medical explanation, maybe we have to accept that it could be something else.” Doctor Bailey looked upward. Gwen Terkel was waiting in Sarah

Regan’s office when she returned to work that afternoon. “You took two days off and you’re late today.” “I had a family emergency. My son was sick and I was at the doctor’s office.”

“A family emergency, huh? I’ve been watching you and I’ve come to the conclusion that you are incapable of giving one hundred per cent to your job therefore I have determined that it is in the best interest of the firm to let you go. Human Resources will determine your appropriate severance package. I would appreciate it if you could be gone by the end of the day” Sarah knew that it was futile to argue the merits of her position. She wanted to reach out and slap the arrogance out of Gwen Terkel, but chose instead to turn and walk out without saying a word. Sarah was disappointed, but not surprised; she knew that her supervisor was just looking for an excuse to terminate her. Even if she could have done things differently, she wouldn’t have, the welfare of her family would always come before her job so she accepted the consequences of her actions. Robert Duckworth’s limo stopped in front of Tolaris Pharmaceuticals. He still had the Regan file in his hand. He punched a number on his cell phone.

“You know that condo complex that we’re going to build in Costa Mesa? Get in touch with Bill Regan of Regan Woodworks and ask him if he wants the cabinet and wood trim job. Don’t worry about getting other bids if he gives us a fair price. One more thing…keep my name out of it.” Robert Duckworth was met by President Hannity and Chief Financial Officer Faulkner of Tolaris Pharmaceuticals at the front door.

“I see great things for our company now that you are involved.” President Hannity said with a broad welcoming smile. “I hope so.” Robert Duckworth answered. “I’ve been thinking that I’m going to need quality control safeguards.

“What kind of safeguards?” Chief Financial Officer Faulkner asked. “I do a lot of construction projects and I always have a QA inspector on site that represents my investors and my interests with unbiased professionalism. That what I want here.”

Historically Speaking by Tom Morrow

These Events Happened a Century Ago

One More For The Road

The Volstead Act, which became the 18th Amendment to the Constitution, took effect Jan. 16, 1920, 100 years ago making the consumption of alcoholic beverages illegal. The so-called “Prohibition” era caused more than a decade of crime primarily involving the smuggling and sale of illegal booze by illegal distilleries, smugglers, and Mafia gangs in every major city nationwide. Murder was rampant.

During the Great Depression Prohibition created millionaire gangsters such as Al Capone, “Bugs” Moran, “Dutch” Shultz and many others who were behind smuggling whiskey and rum from Canada, Cuba and Mexico.

The term “Bootlegging,” a favorite moniker used for someone who dealt in very portable liquor, began early in the days of Prohibition. Purveyors of booze would keep a bottle tucked in the top of their boot. As he encountered someone who wanted a quick drink the “bootlegger” would find a quiet, out-of-the way place, pull the bottle from his boot and provide the purchaser a quick snort.

As early as 1925, journalist H. L. Mencken believed Prohibition was not working, writing "Prohibition worked best when directed at its primary target: the working-class poor." A rich family could have a cellar-full of liquor, but if a poor family had one bottle of home-brew, there would be trouble. Wine could be declared by families as necessary for “religious purposes.”

Within a week after Prohibition went into effect, small portable stills and its product were on sale throughout the country. In some states low-alcohol beer was allowed.

“The person I want for that position is Sarah Regan. To maintain her unbiased perspective we’ll split her salary.” Robert Duckworth further explained.

Many wealthy families bought the entire inventories of liquor retailers and wholesalers, emptying out their warehouses, saloons, and club storerooms. This routine went all the way up corporate America and into the White House. President Woodrow Wilson moved his own supply of alcoholic beverages to his Washington D.C. residence after his term of office ended. His successor, Warren G. Harding, relocated his own large supply into the White House after inauguration.

Several minutes later Faulkner

The Right To Vote

“I don’t see a problem with that.” President Hannity replied.

Chief Operating Officer Faulkner said. “I’ll go get her and we’ll make the offer together.”

Lebo Cont. on Page 8

The 18th Amendment was repealed in December 1933 with the ratification of the 21st Amendment. Those days were, indeed, “Happy again.” As hard as it is to believe, the women of the U.S. didn’t receive

the right to vote until 1920, 100 years ago this summer. The right to vote for women, known as “suffrage” became a world-wide effort beginning in the mid-1800s. Most major Western allied powers extended voting rights to women the period after World War I, including Canada (1917), Britain and Germany (1918), Austria and the Netherlands (1919) and the United States (1920). Today women can vote in nearly every country that has elections. “Say It Ain’t So, Joe!”

The 1920 Chicago White Sox baseball team became known as the “Black Sox” for a game-fixing scandal in which eight members of team were accused of throwing the 1919 World Series against the Cincinnati Reds. Reportedly the scheme was devised by noted mafia gambler, Arnold Rothstein.

Because of the scandal, Major League team owners appointed Judge Kenesaw “Mountain” Landis as the first Commissioner of Baseball for life, with absolute control over the sport in order to restore the game’s integrity. Despite acquittals in a 1921 public trial, Judge Landis permanently banned all eight players from professional baseball.

Requests for reinstatement for the decades that followed (particularly in the case of “Shoeless” Joe Jackson), the ban remains to this day. Jackson, who was a hero to youngsters across America, could neither read nor write. Fans of Jackson maintained he was duped into being a part of something he didn’t understand. One young White Sox fan confronted Jackson outside the Cook County Courthouse in Chicago lamenting: “Say it ain’t so, Joe!” A side-note to the Joe Jackson story: During the 1940s Joe worked in a small convenience store in Georgia. One day the legendary Ty Cobb came in for supplies. Nothing was said at first, then Cobb finally broke the silence, “Don’t you know me, Joe?” Jackson nodded his head saying, “Sure, Ty, but I figured you wouldn’t want to know me.” “The Babe” Sold to the Yankees

Noted Boston Red Sox pitcher-slugger George “Babe” Ruth was sold to the New York Yankees for $125,000. Ruth’s yearly salary was increased from $10,000 to $20,000.

returned looking disappointed. “We got a slight problem. Regan is no longer an employee.”

“I just got my report; they are usually up to date, since when is she not an employee?” Robert Duckworth asked. “She was terminated a couple hours ago.” Faulkner responded. “For what reason?”

“Absenteeism was the official explanation. She has family issues that were interfering with her job duties.”

“I’m a family oriented kind of guy so this could be a deal breaker, gentlemen. I had my mind set on Sarah Regan.” “We have a lot of qualified personnel in our company.” President Hannity commented. “I’m sure we can find someone else.”

Lebo’s ears perk up and he took off at a full sprint and leaped over the six foot fence. “I think good may only be a small part of who that dog really is.” Sarah responded as she looked up and saw an image of a Marine among the rainbows.

“Let me clarify my position.” explained Robert Duckworth. “If you want my hundred million dollars, you better find a way to get Sarah Regan back.”

It is early just before sunset and the Regans are sitting in the backyard. Jimmy is playing ball with Lebo. Bill, Sarah and Jennifer are sitting at the patio table. “It’s been a weird day. I get two calls. The first one is from our attorney. He informed me that our creditors released all financial liens against the business. A couple hours later, I get another call from a contractor and he asked me if I wanted to submit a bid on a big project.” Bill explained as he sipped his ice tea.

“If you think you had a crazy day listen to this; The emergency room doctor and the lab got everything completely wrong because when Doctor Bailey examined Jimmy, he was is in perfect health, then I get terminated from my job for taking time off and no sooner do I get home when the President of the company called to apologize and say how much he respected my decision to take care of my family. He then offered me another position that pays twice as much and has a flexible schedule that will allow me to work a couple days a week from home He sounded so desperate that I reluctantly accepted the position.” Sarah laughed.

“Did you ever cross your mind that since we got Lebo that things have been working out really well for this family?” Jennifer smiled.

“Now that you mention it, the timing fits.” Sarah agreed. “Look at that” Jennifer pointed to the sky. “A triple rainbow, I don’t think I’ve ever seen that before.”

The rainbow colors were bright and vibrant and seemed to fill the sky “I’d say we made the right decision to take him.” Bill said. “He is definitely a good dog.” Sirens begin blaring in the distance.

Pastor Tom Fry, Retired Church of the Nazarene

Humphrey’s previous owner stated he can be a little shy and likes to hide in high places. Humphrey will do great in his new home once he has a chance to settle in! Will you give Humphrey the home he deserves?

Pandemic. Quarantine. Social distancing. Community spread. New normal. All of these, and more, are leading us toward that word almost no one likes: change. There is change all around us, some permanent, some temporary. And, no doubt more is coming.

What does that mean for the Church? Already it has meant innovation. You can attend church on almost any platform and on almost any day of the week. The phrase “come as you are,” to encourage casual dress in church, has taken on a whole new meaning.

But there’s that pesky word, “change.” Some churches will continue their on-line ministries, some will not. We will go back to in-person church services eventually, but there will be change. Handshaking may be replaced by elbow bumps. There will be social distancing. The snack and coffee table after service may disappear. We will have to fellowship, at an appropriate distance, without coffee.

Some elements of worship like congregational singing, choirs, and even the serving of communion may be different. One thing, though, will not change. Hebrews 13:8 says, “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.” The Message says, “Jesus doesn’t change.” Church may change, customs may change. But Jesus Christ is, and will be, the same.

And that is our certainty in a time when there are so many uncertainties.

A Weekly Message from the Mayor of Your Community published in the belief that it is important for elected leaders to communicate with their constituents and that constituents have a means of hearing from their elected leaders.

San Marcos • Mayor Rebecca Jones

Escondido • Mayor Paul “Mac” McNamara Greetings Escondido,

Last week I spoke about being cautious when jumping on a trend, more specifically defunding the police, and I promised some numbers/facts. First let me say, in light of recent events, I think every city, Escondido included, is reviewing how they do business with regard to public safety. Our initial review using the 8 can’t wait criteria was very positive. But we would never say that we are beyond improvement, I would argue no institution is. We are committed to social justice and social equity. That said, we also don’t want knee jerk reactions to events, but rather be deliberate and thoughtful, and make changes that may be required that are well thought out, have stakeholder input and will prove to be positive community improvements in the long term.

So here are some numbers – Police Department Budget percentage has been around 43% for years. It declined this year slightly. Sworn Officers per 1k: Esco-1.05, San Diego Region – 1.28, USA – 2.8. Law Enforcement spending per capita – second lowest in the region. Crime rate is lower than most of the cities in the region and still in a decline. Stay informed, Be Kind, Remember your neighbor, and Stay safe!

Vista • Mayor Judy Ritter

Prepare Long Before Wildfire Threaten s

At this time of the year, Vista Fire officials always worry about the dry Santa Ana winds. High winds and low humidity can transform a small, easily controlled fire into a catastrophic event. As we know, there is always the potential for wild fire in our region. Becoming informed is the first step to living safer and smarter. The key is to design a plan for wildfire, prepare your home and surroundings, and practice fire-safe activities. Be ready long before fire threatens, be prepared and plan your evacuation. Check the following tips or download information at ReadyForWildfire.org. • Maintain defensible space around your home. • Remove or isolate plants known to be highly flammable. • Make a list of items to take during an evacuation. • Learn alternate ways out of your neighborhood in case the usual way is blocked. • Plan how you’ll transport your pet, if necessary. • Listen to local TV/Radio news. If officials instruct you to leave, do so immediately.

Oceanside • Mayor Peter Weiss

Oceanside’s Food Scraps Recycling Program will recycle food waste, and food-soiled paper into its own bin - separate from landfill and landscape cuttings. This program is the result of State mandates that require landfill reduction of food scraps and materials by 50% in 2020 and 75% in 2025.

All businesses are required to participate. The bins, technical assistance, and training are provided free of charge by Waste Management and the City. There is a new Food Scraps Recycling Program fee that is based on the amount and frequency of your food scrap recycling bin and is set at 75% of your landfill fee. This program will reduce the amount of material your business sends to the landfill, therefore your landfill fees may decrease. Delivery of new Food Scrap Recycling bins, will begin in the Summer of 2020. While supplies last, business will receive indoor containers and signage. In addition, staff training and education will be available to interested businesses.

and reported the crime.

The police dispatcher broadcast the call on the radio, and a K-9 unit, patrolling nearby was the first to respond. As the K-9 officer approached the house with his dog on a leash, the blonde ran out on the porch, shuddered at the sight of the cop and his dog, then sat down on the steps.

Putting her face in her hands, she moaned, "I come home to find all my possessions stolen. I call the police for help, and what do they do? They send me a BLIND policeman." ••••• An elderly woman and her little grandson, whose face was sprinkled with bright freckles, spent the day at the zoo. Lots of children were waiting in line to get their cheeks painted by a local artist who was decorating them with tiger paws. "You've got so many freckles, there's no place to paint!" a girl in the line said to the little fella.

Embarrassed, the little boy dropped

his head. His grandmother knelt down next to him. "I love your freckles. When I was a little girl, I always wanted freckles, she said, while tracing her finger across the child's cheek. "Freckles are beautiful!"

The boy looked up, "Really?"

"Of course," said the grandmother. "Why, just name me one thing that's prettier than freckles." The little boy thought for a moment, peered intensely into his grandma's face, and softly whispered, "Wrinkles." ••••• For The Ladies

On the “New Normal”

The recent working, schooling, and just staying at home lifestyle that most folks we know have been enduring over the past three months is beginning to wear thin. We hear about the “new normal” and how it will affect personal interaction and our conduct in public. We’re told that many restaurants, bars and small businesses will never open, gone forever. Will we rush to fill the theaters and sports stadiums as soon as this is over? Will we really stop hello hugging and shaking hands? We’ve been open for business throughout the Covid19 shutdown.

"Uh,"..... I was thinking quickly...."everyone knows this stuff. Um, it's on the mommy test. You have to know it or they don't let you be a mommy." "Oh."

We walked along in silence for 2 or 3 minutes, but she was evidently pondering this new information. I get it!" she beamed. "Then if you flunk, you have to be the daddy! New Medications for Women

Whether or not the movie theaters, live theater and professional sports come back is another question. We have learned to live without them and we have developed home based substitutes. We’re much better at using our home based Internet connectivity for entertainment, work and communications. That is bound to have an effect. For example, here at the Computer Factory we hooked a notebook PC up to a 40 inch screen to demo a musical entertainment group (Post Modern Jukebox). This very large group of talented artists presents a repertoire of modern hit songs in a variety of retro styles (blues, bluegrass, big band, torch, jazz, country, rock etc.) We showcased this group to dozens of our walk-in customers over the past months and many had really never considered Internet as a source of high quality performance art. Try it yourself, just Google (post modern jukebox-you tube). These folks can entertain you with their antics and musical covers for hours.

Habitat for Humanity Update - Housing is a foundational need, and that fact is apparent more than ever during this challenging time. The team at San Diego Habitat continues to work — with your

generous support — toward achieving our mission of building and repairing homes for neighbors in need of safe, stable housing. Progress at Habitat’s new construction sites at Comm22 in Logan Heights and at Leucadia in Encinitas continues. While we won’t be able to welcome volunteers for some time, the sites are dried out from the recent rains, and Habitat construction staff and AmeriCorps members started back to work this week, safely and according to current health protocols. Neighborhood Revitalization and Veteran Repair projects generally take place in occupied homes, so most of those are currently on hold. Fortunately, health and safety directives do allow us to continue some exterior repairs on qualifying homes owned by veterans. Collaboration with partner organizations and community outreach in Logan Heights and National City continues - in search of homeowners in need of repair services. We are training on new safety protocols so we will be ready to return to our scheduled projects when it is safe for everyone to do so. Thank you to everyone who has reached out in support of Habitat’s mission — every hand, every dollar, and every word of encouragement helps us help those who need us. This year, we asked you to #StayHome and join our Everyone Build instead of our annual Women Build fundraiser. Boy, did you deliver! Thanks to YOU and our generous event sponsor, Cox, it has been a big success! And if you were not available on May 5th for #GivingTuesday, you can still give and help us reach our $20,000 #EveryoneBuild match challenge. Even if we can’t physically stand side by side right now, let’s take a stand from wherever we are and ensure that everyone has a safe, decent place to call home. Earlier this month, we launched our all-new online store with an improved, user-friendly experience. Search our online selection of hardware, plumbing supplies, housewares, lighting, and outdoor goods — new inventory is being added daily, so check back often. And, to offer you more flexibility, we’ve recently expanded our purchase options so you can tackle your home maintenance to-do list: Touch-less home delivery: Large items can be delivered to your sidewalk, driveway, or garage. FREE with purchases of $100 or more. Same-day pickup by appointment: Complete your purchase online, then drop by the designated store during your appointment window, and we'll load it up for you. Inter-store transfer pickups: We’ll transfer items to the ReStore location of your choice, so it’s more convenient for you to pick up by appointment. Fast + free shipping: Shipping via FedEx and UPS is FREE for most items valued at $10 or more (some exclusions apply).

Volunteers are the heart and hardworking hands of the Habitat organization, and, though we aren’t able to work side by side with you right now, we celebrate you during National Volunteer Month! These hardworking folks contributed 52,078 hours in 2019 to building and repairing homes, making Habitat events happen, building playhouses in support of our mission, and keeping the wheels turning at our ReStores and administrative offices. THANK YOU, Habitat volunteers! We can’t wait to build with you again! San Diego Habitat for Humanity · 8128 Mercury Court · San Diego, CA 92111 · (619) 283-4663 · sandiegohabitat.org

Living Large in San Marcos by Paul Van Middlesworth

With a couple of weeks of dine-in under our belt we’re ready to start talking about what we’re finding around town. One thing is clear, most people are not yet inclined to “eat out.” We visited San Marcos Brewery and Grill, IHOP, Landons, The Old California Mining Company and Slater’s Fifty-Fifty. None had crowd problems. On several occasions we were the only people in the restaurant. At Slater’s last Saturday between 12:30 and 1:30 there were only four customers including us.

For whatever reason San Marcos folks are definitely not rushing out to enjoy “dine-in.”

Landon’s is under new management and has an interesting menu of mostly Indian/middle eastern cuisine. Pitas, pizzas, soups, salads, shish kebabs, hummus and roast meats from many cultures with mysterious seasoning combinations provide a unique experience. In three visits, without drinks our tabs averaged under $30 and we had to take some home with us each time. We visited the Old California Mining Company twice. Both times during Happy Hour. I chose the Bar Tri-tip and Nome the Tequila shrimp. Wednesdays feature half price on bottles of wine ($10) so we chose a Merlot. Nome really likes the shrimp dish. The Bar tri-tip special is a large bowl with sauted Tritip cooked to order and diced atop a base of onions and mushrooms. Toast is served with it to facilitate the sopping up of the savory juices at the bottom of the bowl. Total price for all, $38.
