Volume 47 - No. 26
By Friedrich Gomez
The former Bruce Jenner, now Caitlyn Jenner, may be the world’s most renowned transgender person today, but she is far from being the only influential sex-reassigned individual. Jenner may have blazed the most publicized trail for transgender liberation, but the daily events from countless others have reverberated more deeply, more profoundly, and have uprooted old laws and replanted new ones – all of which more directly affects you and me in our day-to-day lives. Sexual reassigned individuals have necessitated new laws for the daily workplace, newer and broader guidelines for sexual-abuse training by various work management teams and even controversial access to gender-assigned restrooms in many cities and states.
In all such scenarios, as cited above, people from around the globe are experiencing the transgender influence, if they like it or not. DATELINE SAN DIEGO COUNTY.
Violet Ri of San Ysidro High School would prove to be a pioneer of sorts. The attractive senior was popular, congenial, and transgender. Her transgender status was well-known at her school and, in fact, she won the sentiments of her classmates to the point where she was nominated for 2015 Homecoming Queen. She was on the precipice of making history: she became a nominee to become the first transgender Homecoming Queen in San Diego County history.
Already among the elite five students running for the prestigious school honor, she had already reached a historical benchmark. Win or lose, Violet Ri’s story captured national and international interest.
On Friday evening, November 6, 2015, fellow student, Pamela Guadiana, won the Homecoming Queen Crown fair and square. However, the residual impact of transgender awareness was greatly championed by a most courageous Violet Ri and, in so doing, her presence was, in itself, a crowning achievement for her. Her motto remains a clarion call to a nation of other emerging transgenders: “Be different and embrace it.” Originally born a boy, Violet Ri began transitioning around her junior year at San Ysidro High School. Her acceptance was overwhelming -- she was supported by her parents and encouraged by fellow students to the point of being cheered along with the San Ysidro High School marching band during a pep rally.
Today, Violet Ri is a bright and promising student at the University of Riverside, California where she has taken a major in Liberal Arts. She continues to be an outspoken advocate for

others like herself, “I really want to be an advocate because trans youth numbers are growing.”
As a student at the university level, Violet Ri continues to be a bright, intelligent, and well-loved individual in her brave new world. She is a bright star on the horizon for many transgender youth, many of whom continue to look in her direction for guidance, inspiration, and acceptance.
Such transgender stories are often quickly met with pros and cons and great combustible controversy. One way or the other, it is an emerging reality in today’s world – to ignore its existence would be the height of human folly. DATELINE ALASKA, U.S.A.
Unlike the dynamic and widely-accepted Violet Ri, many transgender individuals traverse a much more difficult

road paved with controversy, legality, and ethical challenges.
All of the above played-out in full force in 2016, just one year after San Diego County’s Violet Ri made a run for her high school’s Homecoming Queen crown. But this time, at Haines High School in Alaska, senior student Nattaphon “Ice” Wangyot made a successful run of a different sort. The transgender athlete captured all-state honors in girls’ track and field, a historic first in making “Ice” Wangyot the first transgender athlete to compete in any high school state championship.
Born biologically a male, Wangyot began transitioning to female during his junior year. In May of 2016 Wangyot became Alaska’s first transgender to win the state championship in the girls’ track and field events at Anchorage. But not without widespread controver-
sy and criticism which spread from a local news story to national, then global news.
In the United States, 30 out of 50 states already have policies set into place which allow transgender athletes to compete as the gender they identify with. Protestors from the Alaska Family Alliance saw things differently than some Wangyot supporters. Many protested that Wangyot’s triumphs on the track and field were more than just an individual exercising their right for ‘gender identity.’ According to critics, the transgender repercussions now directly affected the scholarship plans of other biological females in a most unfair way: “We have a responsibility to protect our girls that have worked really hard, that are working towards college scholarships,” was one reply. One biological female athlete who

faced Wanygot in track competition expressed her own personal view: “I don’t know what’s politically correct to say, but in my opinion your gender is what you’re born with. It’s the DNA. Genetically, a guy has more muscle mass than a girl, and if he’s racing against a girl, he has an (unfair) advantage.”
What started out as an ordinary high school foot race at a track and field event in Alaska, turned out to be a milestone moment of reflection in jurisprudence. (Jurisprudence includes principles (behind) law that make the law. Jurisprudence scholars strive to obtain a deeper understanding of the nature of law, and of legal reasoning which – in theory – should make any law fair and just). Wangyot’s reasoning behind the law which allowed her transgender status to compete with the girls seemed quite simple, at least to Wangyot’s thinking. The transgender athlete said her success on the track and field events were because she just worked harder than her competition. And Wangyot posted her remarks on Facebook for all to read: “If your kids have ‘attitude’ and practice enough it’s gonna be more fun.” Wanygot’s remark on Facebook ignited a firestorm of angry replies.
One mother posted: “If you were directing your comments towards me and my daughter, I think you need to reevaluate what you said Ice. She is a phenomenal runner for a female. She happens to be the fastest female in the MatSu Valley. And she’s only a fresh-
Give Us This Day Our Daily Chuckle This week, a compendium of wit, wisdom and neat stuff you can tell at parties. Enjoy! The Italian Confession
An elderly Italian man who lived on the outskirts of ROME, Italy, went to the local church for confession.
When the priest slid open the panel in the confessional, the man said: “Father… During World War II, a beautiful Jewish woman from our neighborhood knocked urgently on my door and asked me to hide her from the Nazis. So I hid her in my attic."
The priest replied: "That was a wonderful thing you did, and you have no need to confess that."
"There is more to tell, Father.. She started to repay me with sexual favors. This happened several times a week, and sometimes twice on Sundays."
The priest said, "That was a long time ago and by doing what you did, you placed
man. Obviously she is at a disadvantage to you because she was not born with the physical attributes you were as a male. It’s 100% science. Men are physically different than females.” The widely-circulated comment that Wangyot could not compete with the boys, so girls were targeted as easier opponents, was also resurrected by the same mother: “Your times would not have allowed you to compete with the boys (at the state level). So don’t start casting stones telling my daughter she isn’t good enough. Because, she is.”
Wangyot’s scenario was clearly different from cheerleader Violet Ri from San Ysidro High School. Violet Ri’s situation seemed far more democratic where students could freely vote the outcome. In Nattaphon “Ice” Wangyot’s situation, the components of fair play in track-and-field competition was well-challenged, according to many legal observers Nonetheless, the transgender athlete was not without supporters. One student pointed out that defending female champion, Tanner Ealum, was able to vanquish Wangyot on the track. As the student commented, “If Tanner can beat her (Wangyot), then anybody can have a chance to beat her.” And others did: At Anchorage, Wangyot only finished in third place in the 200-meter dash (27.3 seconds), and was soundly trounced when she only managed a fifth place in the 100 meters event (13.36 seconds).
Prior to Nattaphon “Ice” Wangyot’s transgender headlines in high school volleyball and track-and-field events, the Alaska School Activities Association had already begun serious discussions back in 2014-15 regarding how transgender students would be
accommodated in interscholastic sports. The outcome of such meetings was that each individual school district in Alaska would have to make their own decision regarding transgender students. At Haines High School, Wangyot, for example, said she used a single-occupancy restroom. Her gym showers were arranged when the other stalls were empty, and her coach made certain no one else interrupted.
Whichever side one comes down on – or even if one chooses to remain neutral – the transgender era will, nonetheless, continue to impact and play a viable part of our daily lives, our schools, the workplace, and the nucleus of families around the world.
As such, it forces us, for better or for worse, to deeply reflect on ourselves, our sense of ethics and morality, our level of tolerance, and our interpretation of new laws – all of which will most assuredly define us as a human species and set into play our future social values. THE TRANSGENDER LEGACY.
It may come as a surprise that the transgender legacy is a long one. The erstwhile Bruce Jenner follows a long line of predecessors. Lili Elbe (1882-1931) was a Dutch transgender woman, born in Denmark, died in Germany. She is considered one of the first (identifiable) recipients of sex reassignment surgery. The year of her sex change was 1930, in the country of Germany. Others followed suit, such as American, Christine Jorgensen (19261989), who was born in the Bronx, New York, and whose sexual reassignment surgery took place in Denmark in late 1952. Jorgensen’s sex-change was high-profile news, worldwide, and the

"Thank you, Father. That's a great load off my mind. I do have one more question." "Should I tell her the war is over?"
No one believes seniors . . . everyone thinks they are senile.
An elderly couple was celebrating their sixtieth anniversary. The couple had married as childhood sweethearts and had moved back to their old neighborhood after they retired. Holding hands, they walked back to their old school. It was not locked, so they entered, and found the old desk they'd shared, where Jerry had carved I love you, Sally. On their way back home, a bag of money fell out of an armored car, practically landing at their feet. Sally quickly picked it up and, not sure what to do with it, they took it home. There, she counted the money - fifty thousand dollars! Jerry said, We've got to give it back.
Sally said, Finders keepers. She put the money back in the bag and hid it in their attic.
The next day, two police officers were canvassing the neighborhood looking for the money, and knocked
Sally said, No.
Jerry said, She¹s lying. She hid it up in the attic.
The agents turned to Jerry and began to question him.

most famous to that time.
The first surgeon to perform sex reassignment surgery within the United States was Dr. Elmer Belt (1893-1980). Prior to the Christine Jorgensen sensationalism in the world press, Dr. Belt was quietly performing sex-change operations for a number of years. He performed primarily male-to-female operations, although he did also perform a few female-to-male procedures as well. Only after suffering from family pressures did Dr. Belt stop performing sex-change operations in 1962. Aside from the contemporary, Caitlyn Jenner, Renee Richards (born Richard Rasking in 1934), is an American ophthalmologist and is among the most celebrated cases of transgender women in history. As is common with most transgender women, Raskind began cross-dressing sometime during college. What catapulted Renee Richards into the world spotlight was her quest to compete in professional tennis matches as a transgender woman. Prior to Richard’s sex reassignment surgery, he competed on the professional tennis ranks as a male. After his male-to-female surgery in 1975, the transgender Renee Richards sought to compete in the female tennis ranks in 1976, but was denied by the United States Tennis Association, which barred Richards from competing in the 1976 U. S. Women’s Open. The highprofile litigation finally was resolved when the New York Supreme Court stunned the world by over-ruling in her favor. In this landmark decision on August 16, 1977, Judge Ascione found in Richards favor by declaring, “This person is now a female.” Judgment further declared that denying her entry

into the U. S. Women’s Open was, “Grossly unfair, discriminatory and inequitable, and a violation of her rights.”
Though allowed to compete in the U. S. Women’s Open, Renee Richards lost to Virginia Wade in the first round of the singles competition. However, Richards advanced to the finals in the women’s doubles.

When Caroline Cossey appeared as a sexy ‘extra’ in the 1981 James Bond film “For Your Eyes Only” starring Roger Moore, she turned many heads with her allure and sensuality. In fact, when Roger Moore posed on a location photo shoot with eleven bikini-clad beauties, many said she was by far the most sexually-striking beauty of them all.
Little did anyone know at the time that the popular James Bond Girl, known as “Tula” in the spy thriller film, was actually a transgender, male-to-female.
The dark-haired beauty went on to become one of the world’s most popular models, a virtual pinup girl for the ogling eyes of males around the globe who ostensibly could not see enough of her. They weren’t disappointed when Caroline Cossey, first appeared in a 1981 issue of Playboy Magazine. At the time, no one knew she had just

made history as the first transgender Playboy bunny. A second historic benchmark after becoming the first transgender, “James Bond girl.”
Tula’s gender-disguised life ended in 1982 when the exotic English model would be exposed in tabloids as a transgender female but, by then, it was too late -- Tula had already accomplished what many of the world’s most beautiful, aspiring females could only dream about.
Before her exposure, she was the fantasy girl of countless millions of men around the planet, and admired by legions of beautiful women. Her accomplishments take one’s breath away, especially for her time: she worked on one of England’s most popular TV game shows; became a supermodel appearing in top magazines such as Australian Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar; she was booked extensively as a “glamour model,” even appearing as a Page Three Girl for the British tabloid The Sun.
Even after she was ‘outed’ as a transgender female, Playboy Magazine welcomed her back in their September 1991 issue, which has become somewhat of a collectible issue today, alongside of Marilyn Monroe’s sexy layout in the premiere issue of Playboy Magazine back in 1953.
However, the debacle and scandalized headlines after Tula was exposed as transgender diminished Tula’s enthusiasm, plunging her into deep depression to the point where she would contemplate suicide.
As such, her modeling career never fully recovered and after a period of soul-searching she slowly became a crusader for transgender rights, using

July Meeting of Lake San Marcos Democratic Club – The November 2018 primaries for the mid-term congressional election will be upon us soon. There are at least six Democratic hopefuls ready to challenge incumbent Republican Congressman Duncan Hunter. For the July 8 monthly meeting, they have been invited for a Candidate forum. They will introduce themselves, and answer questions about their qualifications, critical issues and their platform. A moderator will conduct the forum. You will have an opportunity to ask
her voice and books to champion her cause.
Originally born Barry Kenneth Cossey on August 31, 1954, in Norfolk, England, Caroline Cossey, more popularly known by her modeling name, Tula, is now 62 years old and is married to second husband, David Flinch (1992-present) and currently resides near Atlanta, Georgia, in America. Caroline transitioned from male to female when she was 20 years old.
While the famed American, Caitlyn Jenner, became a trans-woman at the much older age of 64, Tula and others of her ilk were transitioned at a much younger age, while still blossoming in their youth, empowering them to capture international beauty titles, pageant crowns, as well as the envy of both men and women everywhere.
Had she not succumbed to the scandalized headlines and public scrutiny, Tula wonders to this day if things might have been different for her, if only she had held fast to her meteoric success, which was still on the ascent.
But no – instead, she chose to selfdestruct on her own. She voluntarily removed herself from the highly popular British game show “3-2-1” which continued to run successfully for 10 years and from which she earned a high salary, and stratospheric popularity. “It’s amazing to think what my life would have been like if I’d stayed,” she wonders out loud.
It is most remarkable that, despite her own choice for self-removal from the public eye, she still remained in high demand for magazines, television, and segments of entertainment in general. But now, after her exposure, she felt her demand was now based on her

unique gender identity, rather than her modeling virtues. “All the jobs offered after my past was revealed became based on my gender,” she wistfully recalls.
Transgender models were not widely accepted at the time. It was highly ironic because prior to being revealed as a trans-girl, the world had already called her among the most beautiful of women from what they initially saw with the uncensored eye. After being ‘outed’ these same admiring minds seemed to color and overrule their own visual judgment.
The eyes of the world, somehow, saw her beauty differently before she was exposed. Some said her image was for the uncensored eye, not the mental shackles of prejudice which now anchored and clipped her wings.
An ancient bard once penned: “Beauty is best beheld by the unfiltered eyes only, not with the clumsy intrusion of thought which reeks of pride and prejudice.” Uncanny words which eerily seem to fit Tula’s early life, when she captivated the eyes only – not the transphobic minds – of men. Not so unlike the title of the James Bond spy film she once appeared in – “For Your Eyes Only.” DATELINE SOUTH AFRICA.

Duran is known to hangout in the North County and has contacts in Vista, Escondido and Oceanside. He has tattoos on his forearms, neck and forehead. The murder happened on June 7th in the 2200 block of San Clemente Avenue in Vista. Construction workers found the body of 51-year-old Robert Pierro when they entered the home. Pierro had trauma in the upper portion of his body. Anyone with information about this murder or Duran's whereabouts is urged to call Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477.

And Eichmann. I would go back to the time of Ghengis Khan and ask that he try to be a little nicer and more considerate of his fellow man.

You know all the liars, criminals, adulterers, murderers, thieves, sluts and cheaters, but you don't know the Pope? Lovely, just lovely.
Sometimes I worry about you! ••••• ALERT: If Your Phone Rings Once Then Goes Silent, Here’s The One Thing You Need To Do
Here’s how it works: Scammers are using auto-dialers to call cell phone numbers across the country. Scammers let the phone ring once — just enough for a missed call message to pop up.
The scammers hope you’ll call back, either because you believe a legitimate call was cut off, or you will be curious about who called. If you do, chances are you’ll hear something like, “Hello. You’ve reached the operator, please hold.” All the while, you’re getting slammed with some hefty charges — a per-minute charge on top of an international rate. The calls are from phone numbers with three-digit area codes that look like they’re from inside the U.S., but actually are associated with international phone numbers — often in the Caribbean.
The area codes include: 268, 284, 473, 664, 649, 767, 809, 829, 849 and 876. If you get a call like this, don’t pick it up and don’t call the number back. There’s no danger in getting the call: the danger is in calling back and rack-

America, and the United States. The blond beauty has also been featured regularly in top magazines and advertisements, including VOGUE magazine (Mexico). Lauren Foster’s transgender status was the best-kept secret. But only for a while. Foster would be disqualified after her entry in the Miss South Africa Pageant when her sexual status as a transgender female became known. The Jinn was now out of the bottle.
After she was hired in 1980 by VOGUE magazine to do a multi-page fashion editorial, an expose story on Lauren Foster being transgender was picked up by Reuters, an international news agency headquartered in London; and then the story grew legs when it splashed on various tabloid covers: “REVEALED: VOGUE MODEL WAS A MAN!” But unlike the James Bond girl, Tula, Foster had more resilience. Even after Foster’s sexual identity became known her beauty seemed to override conventional thinking and social taboos when she was consistently seen in the company of famous rock stars, international politicians, and even royalty. When she even became a glittering part of the famed gathering of beauties at the Playboy Mansion, the London Sunday Times felt compelled to write: “Whether she’s partying at Hugh Hefner’s Mansion, stuck in a lift (elevator) with Grace Jones or modeling minks for Hollywood wives, she remains a Goddess of the radiant night.” Lauren Foster’s zenith of popularity
still seemed uncharted when she became the world’s first transgender woman to be featured regularly on the Real Housewives franchise: “The Real Housewives of Miami,” Seasons 2 & 3. Now in her late 50s, the native of Durban, South Africa, Lauren Foster currently lives in Miami Beach, Florida and Cape Town, South Africa. DATELINE CANADA.
Glamorous blond Canadian transgender, Gigi Gorgeous, now age 25, grabbed world attention when her photo was first shown on YouTube where her popularity went off the measuring charts. Her celebrity on YouTube and Facebook skyrocketed to the point where she has racked up almost 2-million subscribers and followers . . . and still counting.
Born Gregory Allan Lazzarato on April 20, 1992, the emerging transgender woman’s stunning beauty quickly found her appearing on numerous television shows such as Access Hollywood, Project Runway: All Stars, and E! Celebrity Style Story, as well as a variety of mainstream films. Her supermodel credits were for worldrenowned designers, such as Marco Marco and her face was captured on the new line of Crest Toothpaste 3D White Brilliance campaign. In June of 2015, Gigi Gorgeous and her meteoric rise found her joining singer Miley Cyrus on a variety of projects. In September 2015 she appeared in a twopage layout in People Magazine. In October 2015 she starred in Adam Lambert’s video for his song, “Another Lonely Night.” Gigi Gorgeous first announced herself as a transgender woman back in
December, 2013. Prior to that she was actually one of the nation’s premier competitive divers to the point of becoming a nationally-ranked diving champion. Unlike many of her peers and predecessors, the Canadian transgender, Gigi Gorgeous, continues to this day to be in constant demand with her popularity still hitting new heights. Gigi Gorgeous is currently dating Natalia Williams Getty, heiress of the Getty family’s billion dollar oil empire. FELLOW CANADIAN.
Transgender beauty, Jenna Talackova, appears to drive home an uncomfortable fact for many observers who begrudgingly consider the claim that many transgender women are often viewed as “more beautiful” than biologically-born females.
beautiful and talented of contestants. On May 19, 2012, Talackova sent shockwaves throughout the world by successfully defeating her formidable competition, finally making it to the coveted Top 12. That achievement, alone, was a stunning victory.
Unfortunate for Jenna Talackova, she failed to reach the Top 5. Nonetheless, the Canadian beauty was one of only four contestants to be awarded the title of “Miss Congeniality.” In her wake, was left legions of others who failed to match her physical beauty, charm, and overall talent as evaluated by a most distinguished panel of judges.
Clearly this viewpoint is far from being shared by everyone, however, the fact that this opinion even exists – and seems to be growing, statistically – is, in itself, a most compelling notion that cannot be completely ignored. In a true democracy, people have the inalienable right to their respective opinions, regardless if it clashes directly, and offensively, with our own.

But, sometimes a confession can set the record straight, and I want to give credit where credit is due. Before I talk about my confession, though, let me say a few other things first. Let me start by explaining the photo in this letter. You know, when I meet people in town they used to say, “Oh, yeah, I know you, you’re Dr. Lim. I’ve seen your ad with that picture of you and the cute little boys.” Well, I’m the guy on the right. Years ago something happened to me that changed my life forever. Let me tell you my story. Back then I was a high school student and an avid martial artist in Korea, but I developed a painful neck condition while I was practicing flying-sidekicks. The pain in my neck was so intense that I couldn’t move my neck, study or read, and sometimes I couldn’t even sleep. My hands were getting numb. I went to a doctor who told me he didn’t know what the problem was and just gave me some pain pills, which didn’t solve the problem at all. After considering surgery, (That was the only option according to the surgeon), I decided against it. But, there’s more... While I was in college, I was
introduced to a doctor who was confident he could help me. This new doctor did an exam, took some x-rays, and then gently ‘adjusted’ my spine. The adjustment didn’t hurt, it actually felt really good. I got relief, and I was able to move my neck freely again. I still remember his name ... Dr. A. J. Willet. Oh, did I mention that this doctor was a doctor of chiropractic? It worked so well for me, and I felt like I was one of the healthiest men in the world. I was so impressed with the other ‘miracles’ I saw in his clinic, that I eventually went to chiropractic school myself. Now for my boy, Matthew, on the left... One day I received a phone call from his school, because he had gotten injured during his gymnastics class. He could hardly move because of so much pain in his back. He explained to me that while he was doing his back handsprings, he felt a stabbing pain in his mid-back and couldn’t get up. Upon careful examination, I found misalingmets in his mid-spine and ribs, and started adjusting him. It was amazing to see how quickly he improved and he was
back to his gymnastics practice the! next day. Michael, wearing clown makeup, used to get plagued with asthma quite often. Imagine, a little boy not being able to play with his friends in gym class, he was afraid of having an asthma attack. After I started adjusting him, the asthma started to improve immediately, and we used to then, ! wrestle together or jog with our puppy with no problem. That seemed like a small thing, but it made a huge difference to him. He graduated from Life University, School of Chiropractic a couple of years ago, and he is very excited and looking forward to serving the community with his postgraduate training in Functional Medicine and clinical nutrition to reverse Type II diabetes, and arrest thyroid and auto-immune diseases, etc. It’s strange how life is, because now people come to see me with their neck pain problems. Also they come to me with their migraine headaches, chronic pain, shoulder/arm pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, neck pain, whiplash injuries, low back pain, disc herniation, asthma, allergies, !
numbness in limbs, athletic injuries, and neuropathy, just to name a few. Several times a day patients thank me for helping them with their health problems. But I can’t really take the credit. My confession is that I’ve never healed anyone of anything. What I do is perform a specific, nonforce spinal adjustment and spinal decompression to remove nerve pressure, and the body responds by healing itself. We get tremendous results. It’s as simple as that! In fact, if you call me within the next 14 days, I will provide you with a full consultation and exam (plus 2 view x-rays, if necessary) for only $27 ($245 Value). And don’t worry; you won’t be obligated for any future care. So, please call right away! Due to the nature of this offer, only the first 17 calls will be accepted. My qualifications... I’m a Summa Cum Laude graduate of Southern California University of Health Sciences, School of Chiropractic with over 30 years in practice. Our two offices are located at: 205 W. Mission Ave. Suite P

exposed to various challenges, such as being allowed to pray in a Jewish synagogue and, if so, how she should pray. Complications arose. According to one rabbinical authority, Dana should be counted in a “minyan” as a man, but also could not sing in front of the Jewish community since she was also a woman. According to the rabbi, that would violate the Jewish Orthodox rule of “kol isha” (literally, the voice of a woman). Despite this intervention of religious controversy, Dana International remains detached by choice: “I don’t believe in any religion, so I’m here as an Israeli, not as a Jew.” Today, she remains Israel’s top singer/songwriter and her overall popularity has secured her a place in both film and television. TODAY’S NEW SEXUAL REVOLUTION.
Today, the presence of transgender individuals have crossed over to mainstream awareness via magazines, newspapers, and the visual media. National Geographic observes in bold print “Transgender Revolution.” Vanity Fair declares in their June 4, 2015 issue, “The Rise of the Transgender Pin-Up,” and on July 9, 2016 the mighty Time Magazine hoists its flag colors in bold lettering, “The Transgender Tipping Point.”
Though it is a most controversial and combustible subject matter that has ignited point-counter-point debates, it is a clear common fact that this new social issue is not about to go away any time soon – rather, it has come home to roost with ever-growing numbers on a global stage: Caitlyn Jenner makes history on the cover of Vanity Fair’s July 2015 issue, the first such occurrence in the 100-year history of the magazine; in 2014 Emmy-nominated African-American actress, Laverne Cox, becomes the first transwoman to make the cover of Time Magazine; New York transgender, Claudia Charriez, reaches the semifinals of “America’s Next Top Model”; transgender glamour model, 26-yearold Amelia Maltepe, originally from a strict Muslim family in Dhakar, Bangladesh, hopes to become the next “Miss World”; Isis King, American Fashion Model and Fashion Designer, becomes first trans-woman to compete on television’s “America’s Next Top Model”; Forbes Magazine selects stunning Brazilian transgender model, Lea T, as one of the 12 women who changed Italian fashion. Lea T also becomes the first openly transgender model to represent a global cosmetics firm and participates in “Dancing with the Stars” (Italian version), and is the first transgender in history to ever participate in the opening world ceremonies of the 2016 Rio Olympics (she led the Brazilian team into the stadium on her bike).
And so the legacy continues to unfold, every week, every day, every hour, somewhere on the global stage. From James Bond girls to Playboy Magazine; from Dancing to the Stars to America’s Next Top Model; from Time Magazine to Forbes; from Israel’s top singing sensation to television, motion pictures, and the world’s greatest beauty pageants – the tree of history is being shaken from the roots up.

California's Native Wildlife
This month, I was excited to join 200 caring people from around the state to advocate for native wildlife at the Capitol for the Humane Society’s annual lobby day. At the press conference in front of the Capitol, I spoke about my bill, AB 1031, that creates a voluntary donation `check off ’ on state tax returns to support Native California Wildlife rehabilitation groups like Project Wildlife in San Diego County and about 70 others that rescue and provide care for injured, sick or orphaned wildlife statewide.
California law currently allows taxpayers to donate to a number of charitable funds when filing their tax returns. My bill adds the Native California Wildlife Rehabilitation Fund to the list of causes eligible for taxpayer donations. These funds will be distributed by the Franchise Tax Board via annual grant programs to eligible entities working to protect native wildlife. In the mid 1980's I volunteered with Project Wildlife and was

Each had unique medical problems and most were released to the wild. Dedicated volunteers transport and rehabilitate injured or orphaned wildlife, from opossums, owls, hawks, raccoons, etc. all over our county. It costs money for food, the central office and medical supplies. AB 1031 will help these efforts all across the state.
The bill is progressing in the Senate, and I am hoping for final approval later this summer to help God's special creatures that make California such an awesome place to live.

Retired Marine, Cal Frsanz, was Guest Speaker at DAR - The Santa Margarita Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR), was privileged to have retired Marine, Cal Franz, as a guest at a recent meeting. Franz presented a power point presentation about SSgt Reckless, a Mongolian mare who served alongside the Marines of a recoilless rifle platoon during the Korean War. The battles being fought by this platoon were in hilly country and the weapons had to be moved constantly so as not to draw enemy fire. Reckless would carry six to eight 75mm recoilless rifle rounds, each weighing about 25 pounds, up the hills, and carry the wounded down, most often by herself with no Marine handler. Even though wounded at times, she continued her task. When the unit left Korea they worked to get Reckless brought to the United States to live out her life in peace. She sired four foals, and was buried at the stables at Camp Pendleton when her 19 year life came to an end. A monument was dedicated to her at the National Museum of the Marine Corps and Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton. As the Marines say, “She wasn’t a horse –she was a Marine.” Regent, Alida Woodward, presented Franz with thanks for his service and a certificate.

Historically Speaking by Tom Morrow
report, Murrow said:
“I pray you to believe what I have said about Buchenwald. I have reported what I saw and heard, but only part of it. For most of it I have no words … if I've offended you by this rather mild account of Buchenwald, I'm not in the least sorry.”
As the 1950s began, Murrow began his television career with misgivings about the new medium. CBS Radio’s “Hear It Now” moved to television and was re-christened “See It Now.” In 1953 Murrow launched a celebrity series entitled “Person to Person.” The Man Who Pioneered Radio and TV News
Edward R. Murrow came to prominence with a series of radio broadcasts from Europe for the Columbia Broadcasting System during World War II. He was born April 25, 1908, Egbert Roscoe Murrow at Polecat Creek, near Greensboro, North Carolina. His parents were Quakers. His home was a log cabin without electricity or plumbing, on a farm bringing in only a few hundred dollars a year from corn and hay.
A graduate of Washington State College, Murrow joined CBS in 1935 and remained with the network for his entire career. When Murrow joined CBS there was only announcer Robert Trout who coached Murrow with tips on how to communicate effectively on radio.
Murrow went to London in 1937 to head CBS's European operations. He hired journalist William L. Shirer, and assigned him to Berlin. When the war began on Sept. 1, 1939, Murrow provided live radio broadcasts back to America during the bombing of London. These broadcasts electrified U.S. radio audiences. These reports, especially during the Blitz, began with what became his signature opening, "This is London!" He flew on 25 British and American combat bombing missions over Europe, reporting to listeners. At the end of one 1940 broadcast, Murrow added a nightly phrase being used by Londoners: "Good night, and good luck." He was urged to stick with it, and another Murrow catchphrase was born.
As the war expanded, Murrow expanded CBS News in London to include a group of reporters acclaimed for their intellect and descriptive power, including Eric Sevareid, Charles Collingwood, Howard K. Smith, and others, later dubbed “Murrow’s Boys.” In 1944, Murrow sought Walter Cronkite to take over for Bill Downs at the CBS Moscow bureau. Cronkite initially accepted, but after receiving a better offer from his current employer, the United Press, he turned down the offer. On April 12, 1945, Murrow was one of the first reporters at the Buchenwald death camp in Germany. In his radio
“See It Now” focused on a number of controversial issues, but it is best remembered as the show that criticized McCarthyism and the Red Scare, contributing, if not leading, to the political downfall of U.S. Sen. Joseph McCarthy, R-Wisc., Murrow used excerpts from McCarthy's own speeches and proclamations to criticize the senator and point out episodes where he had contradicted himself. The broadcast contributed to a nationwide backlash against McCarthy and is seen as a turning point in the history of television. It provoked tens of thousands of letters, telegrams, and phone calls to CBS headquarters, running 15 to 1 in favor.
Murrow offered McCarthy the chance to respond to the criticism with a full half-hour on “See It Now.” McCarthy accepted the invitation, accusing Murrow of being a Communist sympathizer. Ultimately, McCarthy's rebuttal further decreased his already fading popularity. Murrow's hard-hitting approach to the news, however, cost him influence. “See It Now,” in general, did not score well on prime-time television. However, Murrow’s program concept lives on today as CBS’ “60 Minutes.” Another contributing element to Murrow's career decline was the rise of a new crop of television journalists. Walter Cronkite's arrival at CBS in 1950 marked the beginning of a major rivalry which continued until Murrow resigned from the network in 1961. Murrow held a grudge dating back to 1944, when Cronkite turned down his offer to head the CBS Moscow bureau. Murrow was invited by New York's Democratic Party to run for the U.S. Senate. Harry Truman advised Murrow that his choice was between being the junior senator from New York or being Edward R. Murrow, beloved broadcast journalist and hero to millions. He listened to Truman.
A chain smoker throughout his life, Murrow was almost never seen without a cigarette, smoking between 60 and 65 a day. He developed lung cancer and lived for two years after an operation to remove his left lung. Murrow died April 27, 1965, at his home in La Jolla two days after his 57th birthday. His colleague and friend Eric Sevareid said of him: "He was a shooting star; and we will live in his afterglow a very long time."

Frank Lloyd Wright at 150: The Local Link - Museums and architectural societies around the country are celebrating the 150th birthday this month of Frank Lloyd Wright, America's best known architect. At the Valley Center History Museum, a display has been posted to note that work of the iconic architect is reflected in two local properties. In 1959, the year Wright died, one of his sons, John Lloyd Wright, was hired to design a home on a 10.5-acre bluff on North Lake Wohlford Road that echoes the architectural concept of his famous father. The home of 2,900 square feet has been compared to an extant Wright house in Iowa that was built in 1908. Original blueprints of the Valley Center house, signed by Wright, were examined by local historians when they were found in a bedroom closet inside the home in 2004.
boarding school. Its present owner purchased the historic home in 2012. Elsewhere in Valley Center, John Lloyd Wright, who worked briefly with his famous father, was commissioned in 1949 to design an office for United Nations Ambassador Irving Salomon at historic Rancho Lilac on Lilac Road. In 1958, Wright designed another home on N. Lake Wohlford Road. The complicated design attracted no bids from contractors.
The History Museum at 29200 Cole Grade Road is open Tuesdays through Saturdays from 12 noon to 4pm. Admission is free. For more information, visit vchistory.org or call 760.749.2993.
Valley Chapter, DAR, Identifying Veterans Graves in Valley Center – 163 and Counting; that’s the current number of veterans identified in the Valley Center Cemetery by the ladies of the Center of the Valley Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) who have been working for months examining headstones and updating records. Currently, 1,538 records have been uploaded to Find-AGrave. This is a HUGE accomplishment and will greatly benefit family research. The veterans identified represent all Americaninvolved wars/conflicts from the Civil War to modern times.

For only $15.00 you can donate a wreath and the DAR will do all the work for you. Even if your loved one is in a different cemetery, you can donate your wreath in his or her name.

The Transgender Influence Cont. from Page 6
Some view it as a problem; others view it is a liberation of sorts.
In a worldwide poll conducted less than 6 months ago (in December of 2016), various countries gave their views on supporting transgender rights. Of the top 10 countries surveyed, the United States was listed as among the most supportive of transgender rights, today. Rounding out the other top 10 nations backing pro-transgender rights are the United Kingdom (which includes England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland), Canada, Germany, Australia, Sweden, and Spain. In the same poll, the top 10 countries which supported transgender rights to use restrooms they identify with, the United States ranked even higher in

this specific pro-trangender category, with Russia – surprisingly – making this top 10 category, as well. Australia, Spain, and the United Kingdom (England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland) also made this top 10 list.
For better or for worse, pro or con – or even with the face of indifference – the transgender influence is all about us, flourishing in most every corner of human civilization. Whether one revels in this fact or one finds comfort in pretending it does not exist, the reality of it all is that there is an elephant -not only standing in the living room which cannot be ignored – but, there is a herd on the way.

FREEDOM – WHAT IS IT?
The 4th of July is about freedom, at least for us Americans – freedom from England’s taxation, appropriating and abusing individual property, quartering soldiers in the colonies, denying the right of assemblage, restricting free trade, plus excessive tariffs and more. We share in the fruits of the Revolutionaries who fought and defeated the British forces and gave us our American way of life. The slogan, “Freedom isn’t free,” is often heralded as the price which was paid to give us our freedom. Yet, what really is freedom? I would like to define it as freedom from oppression and freedom for opportunity. Oppression comes in many forms, probably the most obvious is political control, where a

few strongmen exercise control over entire populations through fear and threats. This is seenin countries such as Saudi Arabia where women are not allowed to drive a car, be seen in public singly, or be equally employed. This restraint is also in countries such as North Korea with no opportunity for dissent of any kind, especially about the Government.
We need not go far in the U. S. to find oppression – in religious movements exercising control over beliefs and behavior, in homes where a spouse dominates with demands and abuse, in companies which threaten firings and discrimination when employees expose abuses, when because of color, religion, or sexual orientation there is harassment. And we could add more examples. It is in such cases there is no freedom. And then there is the freedom of opportunity – opportunity to think, disagree, imagine, create, express, believe, explore without recrimination of insult and punishment.
A nation to be free gives equal opportunity to all in freedom from oppression and freedom for opportunity. In these two expressions we can freely sing “God bless America” and mean it.

After a while, they’ve got air conditioning, flush toilets and escalators, and the engineer is becoming a pretty popular guy.
One day God calls Satan up on the telephone and asks with a sneer, “So, how’s it going down there in hell?” Satan replies, “Hey, things are going great. We’ve got air conditioning, flush toilets and escalators, and there’s no telling what this engineer is going to come up with next.”
God replies, “What? You’ve got an engineer? That’s a mistake, he should never have gotten down there, send him up here.”
Satan says, “No way! I like having an engineer on the staff, and I’m keeping him.”
God says, “Send him back up here or I’ll sue.”
Satan laughs uproariously and answers, “Yeah right. And just where are you going to get a lawyer?” ••••• On some air bases the Air Force is on one side of the field and civilian aircraft use the other side of the field, with the control tower in the middle. One day the tower received a call from an aircraft asking, "What time is it?" The tower responded, "Who is calling?" The aircraft replied, "What difference does it make?" The tower replied "It makes a lot of dif-

During training exercises, the lieutenant who was driving down a muddy back road encountered another car stuck in the mud with a red-faced colonel at the wheel. "Your jeep stuck, sir?" asked the lieutenant as he pulled alongside.
"Nope," replied the colonel, coming over and handing him the keys, "Yours is." Having just moved into his new office, a pompous, new colonel was sitting at his desk when an airman knocked on the door. Conscious of his new position, the colonel quickly picked up the phone, told the airman to enter, then said into the phone, "Yes, General, I'll be seeing him this afternoon and I'll pass along your message. In the meantime, thank you for your good wishes, sir." Feeling as though he had sufficiently impressed the young enlisted man, he asked, "What do you want?"
"Nothing important, sir," the airman replied, "I'm just here to hook up your telephone."

“Don’t let em steal your bacon”
That was only one part of Mom’s personal philosophy. Mom started in 1946 gradually buying up the hundred-year-old Victorian homes that lined her street (North 11th street in Richmond, Indiana.) Mom bought one after another converting them to apartment buildings with four to ten, one and two bedroom apartments. By the mid 1990s mom owned twenty-two properties with 130 apartments. It wasn’t the best part of town and most of mom’s tenants were factory workers who paid weekly. Though Mom was relentless in chasing down delinquent tenants “if you give an inch they’ll take a mile,” she actually loved
Prayer Helps Pastoral Services Available Always Here to Help and to Pray
Mom had been out of the “landlord business” for a decade when she died in 2007. Her funeral service and visitation was attended by scores of her tenants. We were amazed how many lives she had touched. Her passion for fairness stayed with all of us, her four boys. Doug became a judge, Rex an Attorney and Gary a science teacher in Greencastle Indiana. I spent most of my career managing large manufacturing divisions for fortune 500 corporations. I found Mom’s philosophy worked extremely well. Treat everyone as if they were your friend and neighbor, bend over backwards to help those who genuinely need help but slam the hammer on those who tried to “job” or take advantage of the system. In over twenty years managing large industrial operations from Canada to California we never lost a LRB claim or a lawsuit. We found that our employees were nearly always on our side when it came to stopping the abuse of work rules by a few selfish employees.

You have to love a nation that celebrates its independence every July 4, not with a parade of guns, tanks, and soldiers who file by the White House in a show of strength and muscle, but with family picnics where kids throw Frisbees, the potato salad gets iffy, and the flies die from happiness. You may think you have overeaten, but it is patriotism. ~Erma Bombeck
