It would take an enormous birthday cake to feed everyone on the 4th of July, which is America’s big birthday celebration. Enormous indeed! The mountain-sized birthday cake would have to have enough slices to feed over 324 million Americans. But, it would be well worth it. After all, our Mother Country turns 240 years old this July 4, 2016, and she doesn’t look a day older than 200, at best. She’s still grand at 240 years, still a youngster compared to other countries around the Blue Marble. We Americans love a good 4th of July celebration and we love to gather around family and friends and enjoy a hearty spread of delicious fare that runs the gamut from hot dogs to hamburgers, ribs to chicken, potato salad to coleslaw, and all gastronomical delights in between. Yup, no one celebrates and parties like we do, the children of Uncle Sam, and we’re highfalutin’ proud of that fact. Come to think of it, I’ll drink to that – where’s the Mountain Dew? And cut me another slice of Grandma’s homemade apple pie – wait, make it ala mode for old times’ sake.
Speaking of food, we Americans love hot dogs and hamburgers, especially during our country’s birthday celebration. We eat these two food staples at ballparks, football games, watching sports on TV, at fast-food establishments like McDonalds and Jack ‘n’ the Box, as well as at barbecues and beach picnics, etc. But, which do you think we love more: the hot dogs, or the hamburgers? Hmm, that’s a hard one. You have a 50-50 chance on getting this one correct. If you said hamburgers well, you get a pat on the back and extra ketchup on those fries! We Americans have a fierce love-affair with both of these foods, but hamburgers win out by far! We consume nearly 50 billion hamburgers annually, compared to 20 billion hot dogs. Still, that’s a lot of hot dogs – about 70 hot dogs per person each year!
Our 4th of July is a grand time to reflect on our country’s colorful and interesting past. There are many things about the evolution of America that just may surprise you. For example, the popular and patriotic American song, “Yankee Doodle,” was first sung by the British military officers before the American Revolution! And it was not sung to salute Americans, but to ridicule and make fun of us ‘Yankees,’ with the British laughing at us for being disorganized and wearing foolish-looking buckskin clothing! Hmm, but we The Paper - 760.747.7119
won the war, so no hard feelings.
Every school boy knows that the “Star Spangled Banner” is our national anthem and was written by Francis Scott Key. But what is interesting is that the “Star Spangled Banner” was originally written by 35-year-old lawyer and amateur poet, Francis Scott Key, as a poem in 1814 during the War of 1812. And yet, it did not become our official national anthem until March 3, 1931, by Congressional resolution, over 100 hundred years after it was first composed! Wow! First a poem, then a song, then it took 117 years before it was proclaimed our national anthem -- talk about a delayed-hit song! But
for me, it still puts a tear in my eye.
Well, now that it’s America’s birthday -- the best damned country in the world (my humble opinion) -- let’s continue the party spirit and have fun with some fun facts about the greatest nation on Earth. Herewith is a grand old 4th of July multiple-choice pop quiz for everyone to sit around the barbecue grill or picnic table and enjoy. So, just kick back, relax, and have fun, as only we Americans can! WHICH U.S. PRESIDENT FIRST CELEBRATED 4TH OF JULY AT THE WHITE HOUSE? A George Washington B Thomas Jefferson C Andrew Jackson
4th of July Continued on Page 2
D Abraham Lincoln
The 4th of July was celebrated as early as 1777 with major celebrations, for example, in Philadelphia, where parades, fireworks and a thirteenshot cannon salute took place. But, the first president to officially celebrate with 4th of July ceremonies at the White House was none other than Thomas Jefferson in 1801. That Jefferson knew how to party! So if you picked “B” above, then you’re a smart patriot!
By the way, did you know that Thomas Jefferson changed the wording of the Declaration of
The Paper • Page 2 • June 30, 2016
4th of July Cont. from Page 1
Independence from “the pursuit of property” to the current “the pursuit of happiness”? Well, he did. Back then property was often correlated with wealth or money, and the 33-year-old Jefferson thought it wiser and nobler to cite ‘happiness’ over ‘property.’ Some political wits say that Jefferson should have kept ‘property’ in the Declaration because – as they love to joke – property (or wealth) can bring about a measure of happiness, anyway. All of which reminds me of the humorous line from Helen Gurley Brown, “Money, if it does not bring you happiness, will at least help you be miserable in comfort.” Incidentally, Thomas Jefferson was one of only three U.S. Presidents who happened to have died on the 4th of July. The other two were, John Adams and James Monroe. Jefferson and Adams not only died on July 4th, but they passed away on the very same day, only hours apart from each other (with Jefferson passing away first)! On the other end of the stick, President Calvin Coolidge is the only American president (so far) who was actually born on July 4th, in the year 1872. Now, that’s a real son of Uncle Sam! IN 1776, WHAT WAS THE U.S. POPULATION? A. Half-million B. One-million C. 2 ½-million D. 10 ½-million

A comedian once quipped that people back in 1776 would walk around and say, “Wow! This is a very long time ago!” Well, it was a long time ago when our great country was far less crowded than today. It you chose “C” above, you are a true Yankee Doodle Dandy, my friend! In 1776, there were approximately 2 ½-million Americans in our thirteen recognized states, according to U.S. historians. Today, there are more than 324million U.S. residents! Now you know why it’s so hard to find a parking space anywhere! Don’t get me started on rush-hour traffic!
WHO WAS THE OLDEST PERSON TO SIGN THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE? A. John Hancock B. Thomas Jefferson C. John Adams D. Benjamin Franklin By the way, the Pennsylvania Evening Post was the very first American newspaper to print the Declaration of Independence for its readership. Interestingly, there were a total of 56 signers of the Declaration; Benjamin Franklin being the oldest at age 70, and Edward Rutledge the youngest at only age 26. Thomas Lynch, Jr. narrowly missed being the youngest at age 27. So if you selected “D” above, why you get an extra serving of spiked punch! Or, rum cake. Or maybe stewed prunes, if you’re courageous enough! Incidentally, it took almost a hundred years after the Declaration of Independence was written before it

was officially declared a national holiday by Congress in 1870! And another 71 years, in 1941, for Independence Day to be made a paid holiday for all federal employees! (Note: In 1938 Congress legislated Fourth of July as a Federal holiday with pay for its federal employees, but this law did not include the government of the District of Columbia. This was rectified by the U.S. Congress on May 13, 1941, when July Fourth was amended to be a true national federal holiday with pay – for all U. S. governments, without exception.)
On the surface it seems congress moves at glacier speed. We Americans enjoy our freedom of speech and often love poking fun at our own congressional leaders to the point that it has become almost a national pastime! “Congress is so strange; a man gets up to speak and says nothing, nobody listens, and then everybody disagrees.” (Jay Leno)
Though we take great pride in our American roots, it is nevertheless ironic that much of what we see as ‘purely American’ is not so, at all. The world has changed with the times, and so has our country. For instance, 87.5% of all imported U.S. flags are made in China! American 4th of July without fireworks is like hot dogs without mustard, yet both are imported examples. In regards to fireworks, 97% are imported into our country from China. Two of our most treasured national symbols were made overseas, the

STATUE OF LIBERTY & LIBERTY BELL CAME FROM WHAT TWO COUNTRIES?: A Germany and Italy B England and Germany C Spain and England D France and England
If you selected “D” above, well, I’m impressed! The Statue of Liberty was a gift from the country of France on October 28, 1886. Its formal name is “Liberty Enlightening the World.”
ROMAN GODDESS. This may startle you, but, did you know that our precious Statue of Liberty is a representation of a goddess from Roman mythology? Well, it’s true! The Statue of Liberty’s is modeled after ‘Libertas,’ the Roman goddess of freedom. The statue is a most emotional figure to behold. Broken shackles and chains lie at her feet, with her right foot raised, depicting her moving forward – away from bonds and the oppression of slavery. She stands a full 151 feet in height from her base to the top of her torch and at the time of her dedication was the tallest iron structure on Earth! With the pedestal and foundation included in the measurement, her full

height is 305 feet tall. Our Statue of Liberty has some very colorful and fun facts that are very rarely mentioned. Here are some examples for your reading enjoyment! This colossal statue, nicknamed the Colossus of New York, has a gigantic 35-foot waistline! She’s a big girl, indeed. And if she were to wear a pair of shoes, well, her shoe size would be an astonishing size 879 – hmm, and I thought my Grandpa had big feet at size 14! Did you know that winds move the great statue? Well, it’s a fact! Winds of just 50 mph cause her to sway up to three inches and her torch moves as much as six inches! Aside from these gusts of wind current, our Lady of New York Harbor has sustained other natural elements against her, including bolts of lightning! Because of her singular height, she has been a lightning rod at times.
The first time a photographer officially captured a bolt of lightning striking our Statue of Liberty was in 2010. It made world headline news for both the print and television media and the photographer, Jay Fine, said he had waited more than 40 years to capture the perfect shot! The image which was caught on film by the 58-year-old photographer was deeply emotional and mesmerizing for us Americans; to witness our beloved Statue of Liberty – standing resolute and strong – against one of the most powerful forces in nature! She was nothing short of magnificent and breathtaking. Guarding our New York Harbor, she was valiant and majestic, and undefeated, as she stood her sacred ground, protecting and proclaiming our national freedom. It proved to be a galvanizing sight for all the world to witness! It was her finest hour! It has been estimated that she has drawn around 600 lightning bolts since she was first put into place in the New World!

Even though our Roman goddess now belongs to us, here in America, in many ways her existence and message belongs to all citizens of our precious planet. Her seven spikes on her crown represent the seven oceans and the seven continents of the world, indicating her universal concept of liberty. There are 25 windows in her crown and the mere sight of her has caused many an immigrant onboard approaching ships to drop to their knees in humble thanks for such a powerful vision of freedom and new life waiting for them! One immigrant from Greece remembers seeing her for the very first time in his younger life. He remembers saying to himself in broken English: “Lady, you’re such a beautiful! You opened your arms and you get all the foreigners here. Please . . . give me a chance to prove that I am worth it; to do something; to be someone -- in America.”
The Statue of Liberty is one of the most cherished gifts to the United States from the people of France. Many replicas were created and now occupy various French cities. But the most special replica is located at the Ill aux Cygnes, not far from the Eiffel Tower in Paris. It is one-fourth the size of America’s Statue of Liberty and, like its original American counterpart, it also sits within an island (Swan Island, in the middle of the River Seine). There is a very deep emotional story involving this replica in France. It originally faced towards the east but, somehow, this was thought to be wrong. So, it was carefully re-positioned so that it currently looks to the west, a touching tribute since it now officially faces in a new direction allowing her to look towards her bigger sister in New York. The two sisters are now aligned to look towards one another, today. The Liberty Bell, all 2,080 lbs of her (also mentioned in our multiplechoice quiz above), is located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and remains a strong symbol of freedom,

also. It was commissioned from the London firm of Lester and Pack in 1752 and was cast with lettering from the Old Testament Bible: “Proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof.” (Book of Leviticus, 25:10). A little known fact is that at one time the Liberty Bell was well-traveled. Beginning in 1885, the City of Philadelphia allowed the famous bell to be put on display at various patriotic events and celebrations! The now-immortal bell cracked the first time it was rung but was recast by local artisans, twice, for the same reason. This also, has an amazing storyline; a true American legacy. The two local workmen who repaired her were named John Pass and John Stow. To this day, if you look closely at this magnificent American emblem, you will see the legacy of these two men from a grateful country. Their last names, “Pass and Stow,” appear on the bell itself. These two men who were the early benefactors whose efforts to restore her magnificence are now forever enshrined with their handiwork! Both the Statue of Liberty and the Liberty Bell remain among our most treasured gifts from France and England, respectively.

union, Rhode Island has the supreme bragging rights as having the oldest (continuous) 4th of July celebration in the United States. The Independence Day parade in Bristol, Rhode Island, started in 1785 and has continued (uninterrupted) every year since that date! Celebrations for 4th of July, of course, started much earlier than this, but Rhode Island’s observance is documented as being the longest, sustained, observance, according to official historical records. It is noteworthy to point out that John Adams believed July 2nd, not July 4th, to be more deserving of future celebration because that was the date – according to Adams – that the momentum towards achieving American Independence was initiated. WHO WAS THE FIRST TO SIGN THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE? A. Thomas Jefferson B. Benjamin Franklin C. John Hancock D. Charles Thompson
Well, this gets a little tricky. While Thomas Jefferson was the chief architect of the Declaration of Independence, he was not the first to sign it! Only two men signed the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776 – John Hancock and Charles Thompson. Of the two, the President of Congress, John Hancock, signed the handwritten draft first, followed by Congress Secretary, Charles Thompson, second. Other signers would eventually follow, a total of 56 in all. But John Hancock’s signature was by far the most flamboyant! His large, cursive style is nearly a full five inches in length. His iconic signature would become symbolic for all American signatures to this day. So much so that – 240 years later -- the American slang for “signature” is “John

On Monday 06-13-16, at approximately 1:10 p.m., CHP, Escondido Police, and Escondido Fire personnel responded to a report of an unresponsive female in a vehicle on the on-ramp to northbound I-15 from El Norte Pkwy. Escondido Fire Department personnel arrived and determined that the female was deceased. The deceased had a head injury and was seated in the driver seat of the vehicle. The front driver and passenger side windows of the black Mercury Sable were shattered.
search warrant at Long’s residence in San Marcos where several items were seized. A crime bulletin was shared with law enforcement agencies. Additionally, Long’s identifying information and vehicles associated with him were entered into law enforcement databases. On Tuesday June 21, a Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Officer conducted a traffic enforcement stop on a vehicle occupied by Edward Long.
Edward Long has been arrested in Las Vegas on murder charges in connection with the death of Elizabeth Perez. Long is currently in a jail in Las Vegas, NV. He has waived extradition, and arrangements are currently underway to return Long to San Diego County to face charges. Even though an arrest has been made, there is still a significant amount of work that needs to be completed. Specific details about this investigation, including; evidence seized, the existence of any statements, and possible motives will not be released at this time. Summer Heat in a Closed Vehicle Can Cost your Best Friend its Life
What began as a suspicious death case was later determined to be a homicide. Evidence indicates that the victim, Elizabeth Antoinette Perez (38 year old resident of Fontana) was shot to death. As the investigation continued, information was obtained indicating that Ms. Perez’s boyfriend, Edward Andrew Long (38 year old resident of San Marcos) was a person of interest in the homicide. Escondido Police Detectives served a
When "just a few minutes" for a dog or child sitting in a closed vehicle turns into 5 or 10 minutes, it can become deadly. That's why Rancho Coastal Humane Society (RCHS) spokesman John Van Zante has locked himself in a closed vehicle to show how quickly temperatures can rise to deadly levels. Van Zante recalls a family rushing their dog to a veterinary hospital after leaving it in the car. When the family returned, it was too late. A veterinary technician later
Quick! How do you pronounce the word “Toronto?” Chances are . . . you’re wrong. Unless, of course, you’re a tourist.
I found out that natives call their city “Toronno.” The second “t” is silent.
Hard habit to break but I think I’ve got it down.
We just returned from a brilliant week in Toronto (you spell it Toronto . . . you just pronounce it Torono) for an International Kiwanis Convention. I had never been to Toronto before and have absolutely fallen in love with the city and its people.
Van Zante says the most dangerous part of summer heat for pets (and people) in cars is that the temperature rises so high ... and so fast. "We’ve seen the temperature in a closed vehicle rise from 80 to 112 degrees in as little as two minutes. By 10 minutes it was 138 degrees and in an hour it was 160. That's enough to kill a dog....or a person. It's not worth the risk to leave pets or kids in the car while we run into the grocery store for milk and bread."
Since dogs don't sweat (except a little through their paws), they pant to cool off. When air temperature is higher than a normal 101 to 102 dog body temperature, panting increases the dog’s temperature. Heat stroke occurs when a dog's body cannot cool. That can lead to multiple organ failure. Symptoms of heat stroke include panting, red guns, irregular heartbeat, and disorientation (almost like your dog looks drunk.) If your dog shows signs of heat stroke, start by spraying it with cool (not cold) water, wrap it with cool towels, and take it to your veterinarian. Van Zante reminds dog owners to watch out for hot paws on the sidewalk, pavement, and even sand. "And while we may want to take our dogs along to a picnic or 4th of July fireworks, they'll be safer at home in a cool, secure area.

Toronto is one of the most diversified cities you’ll every see. 95 separate ethnic communities within its metropolitan area and for every ethnic community you have one or more ethnic restaurants.
One of the fascinating things we did was take the trip to Niagara Falls, about a two hour drive out of Toronto. We were continually entertained and educated by our tour guide, a handsome young gent by name of Alex Roberts. Dad is Irish, Mom is English, they lived in Quebec. Neither parent spoke French. Alex, when in elemtary school, was the minority as he spoke only English. He was teased by all the other students who pronounced his name “Ribbit, Ribbit.” But Alex perservered, grinned and took it all, and learned to speak French fluently. He also learned how to skate and, surprise!, play hockey. Even now, at 46 years of age, he still plays hockey in an amateur league.

Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Italian, Greek, Vietnamese, Turkish, Indian, you name the cuisine and you can find it in Toronto. Not surprisingly, you will notice a great many different languages being spoken as you walk down the street. Several times I stopped to ask an American/Canadian looking person for directions and it turns out they did not speak or understand English. They were, like me, just visiting.
We met two lovely young ladies from London, by way of India (their home country) who had found well paid employment in England and were on a one month holiday, several weeks of which would
When I heard this I turned green with envy.
We had four days in Toronto. We needed at least two more days to visit some of the hot spots . . . but we would really prefer to go back there for two weeks. So much to see and do.

Letters to the Editor Laughter
Sometimes letters to the editor are the best as was the case this last Thursday. He expressed my sentiments exactly with more humor than I would have. All these "holier than thou" people who can't laugh at any humor must be very sad people indeed. Let's face it, every religion and race have their known characteristics. Therefore, you have the Jewish jokes etc. They make jokes about their selves so therefore I would presume we can too in a respectful manner. Laughter is good for you. It keeps you from being depressed, eases stress, and is good for heart health. My prescription for them is to go to Laughter yoga sessions. It would do them good. Keep up the good work.

such that real estate has boomed. For example, in 2015 real estate prices increased by 15%! And, for each of the five years leading up to 2015 there was an annual double digit increase in real estate prices.
Buyers are coming in from China, Japan, Mexico, from all corners of the world. The average condo unit in downtown Toronto will set you back around $1.2 million. You might find a very small one for $600,000. Alex told of us a friend of his, Karen, who bought a house 10 years ago for around $294,000. That same house today is worth $950,000. Pretty good appreciation in just 10 years. If I were a younger man, and if I did not publish a weekly newspaper, I would seriously consider emigrating to Toronto, it’s that beautiful of a place and people.
The only thing that would likely hold me back is a little thing called . . . winter.
Having grown up in the midwest I’ve experienced my share of winters . . . and I don’t miss ‘em. Not one bit. Winter typically runs from November through April. Six months. During those six months life

WHAT IS THE OFFICIAL LANGUAGE OF THE UNITED STATES? A English B Spanish C German D No Official Language
While many countries have official languages, the United States, interestingly, does not. So, if you selected “D” above, you are correct. Despite not having an official national language, American English is the primary language spoken in this country, as well as the language used for legislation, executive orders, federal court rulings, etc. The fact that America is without an official language distinguishes our country from others, such as England, France, Germany, Austria, Italy, all of which have their own official languages. Standard German, for example, is the official language of Germany and Austria, with 95 percent of these countries speaking Standard German or German dialects. French is the official language of France, English the official language of the United Kingdom, Italian the national language of Italy, etc. Whether the United States of America will ever decide to enact an “official language” is something only time will tell. British English and American English have often been the source of friendly humor between these two allied cultures. George Bernard Shaw once
quipped, “England and America are two different countries separated by a common language.”
WHICH U.S. CITY HAS THE LARGEST 4TH OF JULY FIREWORKS DISPLAY? A Chicago B Washington, D. C. C New York City D San Diego
Well, they all have spectacular firework celebrations, but the granddaddy of them all by sheer size occurs at the annual Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks Celebration in New York City! So, “C” above is the right selection. It is the country’s largest pyrotechnic show and launches are shot from multiple locations from various floating barges along the East River near the Brooklyn Bridge! San Diego is actually listed as having one of the largest pyrotechnic displays over Mission Bay, along with Chicago, Boston, San Francisco, and Washington, D. C. So, we are definitely in the running!
Speaking of Fourth of July fireworks, don’t forget to attend the many Independence Day Festival & Fireworks on Monday, July 4, 2016.

can be pretty miserable. The downtown restaurant and night life is almost non-existent. People are cold. Very cold. And they get sick a lot. When the snow begins to melt along about April, they finally begin to cheer up again.
In spite of this, the tiny bits of spring and fall, together with a lovely summer, seems to make up for it. So much to tell you about Toronto we’ve decided to do a special edition, a cover story, on Toronto. Probably in the next week or so.
As you can tell, we’ve absolutely fallen in love with the place. Highly recommend you put it on your bucket list as a place to visit. (And when you get there, take the Niagara Falls bus trip and request Alex Roberts as your guide. He is absolutely amazing!) ••••• A word about Air Canada: The staff were very nice.

Accurate Quotes? Hi Lyle, I always enjoy reading The Paper. Keep it up. Just a few comment on your June 23 edition regarding the President Theodore Roosevelt quote. Although I believe most Americans probably feel like he did I would like to refute his statement that there can be no divided allegiance. As I understand it any citizen can be a dual citizen with another country That doesn't make him less of an American. Also, "We have room for but one language here and that is the English language." That is also wrong. America (the USA) does not have an official language. English is the language used officially, but no language has been officially declared. From what I understand from my readings, Mr. Teddy Roosevelt had racists leanings. There is a book called, "The Imperial Cruise" written by James Bradley that states this and also says that Mr. Rough Rider was in fact a mamma's boy! A very interesting book. I really enjoy reading Mr. Tom Morrow's history articles. Maybe he could do some research on Theodore Roosevelt. /s/Andy G. Pino Escondido, CA 92029
A Fond Farewell
Lyle & Evelyn, We have been friends for such a long time - it is hard to think we will not be nearby! Thank you for coming to our send-off - and for the funds we will use during our long drive next week.
When she saw your column mentioned us and the farewell gathering, my mother called immediately to be sure we picked up copies of The Paper! How fortunate to have friends like you. Will miss seeing you in person, but pray God's blessings on you and your family. Paul & Claire Tullius (Formerly of Escondido, now living in Colorado!)
Editor’s Note: We’ll miss you both! Best wishes! From Evelyn:
Go back to page 3 of the July 4th cover story; re-read the quote from the Greek immigrant.
Wow! That brought a tear to the eye and a wish that all our immigrants would feel the same way. What a country this would be!

Safeguarding the elections process
During this primary election cycle in Riverside County, hundreds of voter record abnormalities were identified, a situation exacerbated on Election Day when voters whose records had been altered without their knowledge were threatened with disenfranchisement. In response, I am introducing legislation to update and secure California’s online voter registration procedures. Unauthorized voter record changes reported in Riverside County included changes to party affiliation, addresses and preferences regarding mail-only voting. It is clear from the initial investigation that records had been altered online without voter consent, resulting in potential disenfranchisement that was only prevented when the Riverside DA's office sent out investigators to ensure that provisional ballots were provided to the impacted

SYLVIA: It wasn't so bad. After I quit shaking from the cold, I began to get warm & sleepy, and finally died a peaceful death. What about you?
WANDA: I died of a massive heart attack. I suspected that my husband was cheating, so I came home early to catch him in the act. But instead, I found him all by himself in the den watching TV. SYLVIA: So, what happened?
WANDA: I was so sure there was another woman there somewhere that I started running all over the house looking. I ran up into the attic and searched, and down into the basement. Then I went through every closet and checked under all the beds. I kept this up until I had looked everywhere, and finally I became so exhausted that I just

My legislation will update pre-computer era security procedures by providing additional protections for voters in the digital age. Specifically, any online record update or change made through the Registrar of Voters website would require the Registrar to confirm with the voter any changes prior to updating the record. This requirement would be very similar to precautions currently taken by many private companies to prevent identity theft and safeguard customer financial records. The ability to hold free and fair elections in which all eligible voters are allowed to exercise their franchise without interference or tampering is the bedrock of our representative Republic. Voter disenfranchisement undermines confidence in our election process. Guaranteeing the sanctity of elections should be a bi-partisan concern upon which we can all agree.

Historically Speaking by Tom Morrow
He led the largest private army in the U.S.
In the late 19th century, the name of Allan Pinkerton became the most feared among the bad guys and the most respected by law-abiding citizens. His detective agency grew to more than 30,000 agents becoming the largest private army in America. Pinkerton’s agency served as the forerunner of the U.S. Secret Service, as well as being retained by corporate America, most notably the railroads. The tycoons wanted Pinkerton to stop train robberies by gangs like those of Jesse and Frank James, the Younger brothers and the Hole in the Wall gang led by Butch Cassidy.
Pinkerton was a Scotsman who was born in Glasgow, Scotland on Aug. 25, 1819. He left school at the age of 10, read voraciously and was largely self-educated. Pinkerton was a cooper (barrel-maker) by trade who emigrated to the United States in 1842.
As early as 1844, Pinkerton worked for the Chicago abolitionist leaders, and his Illinois home was a stop on the so-called “Underground Railroad,” which sheltered runaway slaves from the South.
In 1849, Pinkerton was appointed the first police detective in Chicago. In 1850, he partnered with Chicago attorney Edward Rucker in forming the Northwestern Police Agency, which later became Pinkerton & Co, and finally Pinkerton National Detective Agency. The agency is still in existence today as Pinkerton Consulting and Investigations. Pinkerton's business insignia was a wide-open eye with the caption "We never sleep." The term “Private Eye” comes from that insignia. As the U.S.expanded in territory, rail transport increased. Pinkerton's agency solved a series of train robberies during the 1850s, first bringing Pinkerton into contact with (the
future Union general) George McClellan, then chief engineer and vice president of the Illinois Central Railroad, and Abraham Lincoln, who was that company's attorney.
Prior to the Civil War, Pinkerton developed several investigative techniques still in use today. Among them are "shadowing" (surveillance of a suspect) and "assuming a role" (undercover work). When the Civil War began, Pinkerton served as head of the Union Intelligence Service during the first two years, foiling an assassination plot in Baltimore, Maryland while guarding Abraham Lincoln on his way to Washington, D.C. His agents often worked undercover as Confederate soldiers and sympathizers to gather military intelligence. Pinkerton served on several undercover missions for the Union Army. Pinkerton’s Intelligence Service was the forerunner of the U.S. Secret Service.
Following Pinkerton's service with the Union Army, he continued his pursuit of train robbers. He was hired by the railroad express companies to track down the outlaw Jesse James, but after Pinkerton failed to capture him, the railroad withdrew their financial support and Pinkerton continued to track James at his own expense. After James allegedly captured and killed one of Pinkerton's undercover agents (who was working undercover at the farm neighboring the James family's farm), he abandoned the chase. Some consider this failure Pinkerton's biggest defeat. He also opposed labor unions. The agency’s reputation was somewhat tarnished for the protection of replacement workers (so-called "scabs") and the business property of the major industrialists, including Andrew Carnegie. Pinkerton was so famous that for decades after his death, his surname was a slang term for a “private eye.” Hardboiled crime fiction novelist Dashiell Hammett was employed by the Pinkerton agency before becoming an author, and his experiences influenced the character of Nick Charles in “The Thin Man” series. Allan Pinkerton died in Chicago on July 1, 1884. Reportedly, Pinkerton slipped on the pavement and bit his tongue, resulting in gangrene. Contemporary reports give conflicting causes, such as that he succumbed to a stroke or to malaria. At the time of his death, he was working on a system to centralize all criminal identification records, a database now maintained by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

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

They have adopted a penny-pinching policy of (a) charging for baggage, (b) squeezing every passenger on board a plane possible (and to do that they’ve reduced the space between the folding table on the back of the chair in front of you, and your belly so that it’s uncomfortable to eat, let alone try to rest using the table as a head rest, and (c) reducing the amount of space you can move the head rest portion of the seat back.

Pastor Richard Huls (Retired) Independence
Independence is in the air. With the British exiting the European Union , other nations in Europe are talking about their departures. What does it all mean? It has been a long time since our founding fathers got together to sign the Declaration of Independence, a document that separated the thirteen colonies from British control. Our history books try to capture the essence and significance of that event. Today, we enjoy the benefits of that act, but often fail to grasp what it really means simply because most U.S. citizens have never lived under the rule of another political power. Many in the world have and do. All over the world, people struggle to be their own masters, make their own laws, coin their own money,
One way to appreciate what we have in the U.S., is to see what so many peoples don’t have, fight for, sacrifice to get, and are willing to die for. By contrast, we can be thankful.
Yet, do we know what it is to be independent? For one thing, it means we are not reliant on others for our welfare. As individuals, we can examine how much we want others to take care of us and what we give up to have it. For another thing, we can ask how much effort goes into being independent financially, both for our daily needs and future retirement. Thirdly, we can seek to help others acquire this independence with education, discipline, and example. Fourthly, we can appreciate the spiritual connection in that God has given us the resources to develop, appreciate, and work to make this country and world better. Independence is not to be confused with freedom. Freedom is a gift, often purchased with both the efforts of others and ours. Independence is a condition, a place in life, which calls for total personal responsibility, to both assume and protect the freedoms it gives us.

Escondido • Mayor Sam Abed
Mayor Sam Abed does not wish to write a weekly column to communicate with his Escondido Constituents via The Paper and its “A Letter from the Mayor” series East is East, West is West
"East is East, West is West, and never the twain shall meet"... By: Major General Jerry Curry, USA , (ret.)
The British poet Rudyard Kipling, understood today's situation in Afghanistan better than our State Department when he wrote: "I have eaten your bread and salt. I have drunk your water and wine. The deaths you died I’ve watched beside and the lives you led were mine."
There are (2) points Congress members, the President, Secretaries of State and Defense should keep in mind as they evaluate future involvement in the Mid-East and how to address them. Both are easiest illustrated by real life situations.
Point One (1) Many years ago I attended the Infantry officer Advanced Course at Fort Benning , Georgia . Ten percent of the students attending that ten month course of instruction were from foreign countries. For about half of the course my table-mate was an Arab. We studied, completed homework assignments together, got to know each other's families, and generally enjoyed each other's company. Part of that time we students were immersed in reading about, researching, and discussing wars and problems of the Middle East.
In time my Arab classmate and I had (I thought) become close friends. A question popped into my mind and without evaluating it I said, "I have a question to ask you, and you may find it impertinent, or perhaps offensive." "That's quite all right", he replied. "We know each other well enough to be honest with each other. So go ahead and ask your question." "Well," I began, "Each time you Arabs start a war with Israel , they beat your socks off. Why don't you learn your lesson and quit making war on them?" The words hadn't passed my lips before I felt that I shouldn't have asked that particular question, but I was wrong. My Arab officer
friend didn't get angry. He didn't even think before replying. "My dear friend," he said in his British accent, "You are absolutely right. Each time we attack the Israelis they whip us. But have you noticed that with each loss we get better. We get whipped not as badly as in the war before." Then he got a faraway look in his eyes, pounded on the table and said, "sometime in the next thousand years, we will win!" Up until then I’d never thought in terms of a thousand years, and I don't think I'm very good at it today. But for those formulating foreign and defense policy for our nation, it is worth making the effort. For it’s difficult to think in terms of the immediate future while negotiating with a nation whose leaders are thinking in terms of hundreds or thousands of years. Point two (2) During the 1st Gulf War, US and Arab forces fought side by side and some of the officers became close friends.
When the war ended in victory there was a celebration in the Officer's Club with congratulations all around. A lot of handshaking and hugging was going on. It was a time of displaying real brotherly love. Seeing this, one of the senior Arab generals felt the need to set the record straight.
"Look," he said to a cluster of American generals. "We’ve fought together and some of us have died together. I know you feel that makes us brothers. But that’s not the way it is in my world."
He looked around the circle making eye contact with all of them. "I don't want to see you hurt, so I need to share this with you. There is no tomorrow for us jointly. No matter how much you have helped my country and you came and helped us when we desperately needed your help and no matter how friendly you feel toward us, we are still Muslims and you are still Christians. That means that in our eyes, we can never be brothers. I'm sorry, but to us, you will always be Infidels!

Cell phones, PDAs, smart phones, PCs and beyond.
The difference between cell phones, PDAs and “smart phones” is fuzzy. They represent an evolution rather than any sharp divergence of technologies. In general terms, a cell phone is a portable voice communication device, a PDA (personal digital assistant) is a mobile internet connection with local applications and a “smart phone” does both. Today “smart phones” dominate communication and Internet access. ‘Smart phones” have been around since the late 1990s but their rise to prominence started with the introduction of the iPhone in 2007. By 2008 the Apple (iPhone) was fourth in sales behind Nokia (Symbian), RIM (Blackberry) and Microsoft (Windows Phone). That year the World bought 122 million “smart phones.”

keeled over with a heart attack and died.
SYLVIA: Too bad you didn't look in the freezer ---we'd both still be alive. ••••• Today I was in a store that sells sunglasses, and only sunglasses. A young lady walks over to me and asks, "what brings you in today?" I looked at her, and said, ‘I'm interested in buying a refrigerator.’ She didn't quite know how to respond. Am I getting to be that age? I was thinking about how a status symbol of today is those cell phones that everyone has clipped onto their belt or purse. I can't afford one. So I'm wearing my garage door opener.
You know, I spent a fortune on deodorant before I realized that people didn't like me anyway.
I was thinking that women should put pictures of missing husbands on beer cans! I was thinking about old age and decided that old age is when you still have something on the ball but you are just too tired to bounce it. I thought about making a fitness movie for folks my age and call it 'Pumping Rust'.
When people see a cat's litter box they always say, 'Oh, have you got a cat?' Just once I want to say, 'No, it's for company!'
In 2008 Google entered the market with the “Android” mobile operating system based on the Linux kernel. It was open source and free to all “smart phone” manufacturers. Until “Android” each “smart phone” maker used their own proprietary operating system (OS). Manufacturers jumped at the opportunity to have a common OS platform for applications development and by 2010 Android had raced past Blackberry, Windows and Apple to tie industry leader Symbian. By 2013 Blackberry and Symbian were distant memories and “Android” had captured an astounding 82% of the “smart phone” business.” Apple’s iPhone had a 15% share and Microsoft managed less than 3%. By 2015 annual “smart phone” sales had reached 1.4 billion units, a tenfold increase over 2008.
phones” by Google and Apple.
Employment application blanks always ask who is to be called in case of an emergency. I think you should write, 'An ambulance.'
You know you are getting old when everything either dries up or leaks.
"Well, yes, I am," she replied proudly. "I'll be 97 next month, and I am now old enough, that I don't even need a driver's license anymore."
Microsoft’s Windows OS and Apple have dominated “stationary systems” (desktops and notebook PCs) for the past three decades. Windows is on 92% of PCs the rest are Apples. Microsoft relies on that dominance to sell operating systems and applications while Apple sells obscenely overpriced PCs to a small but intensely loyal cult. Now that gravy train is threatened. Five years ago new PC sales began to sag. Smart phones and tablets were replacing some PCs but more importantly, over the past ten years the “replacement cycle” for PCs had risen from 2-3 years, to an average of 6 -7 years. Microsoft was hurt more than Apple by declining PC sales because Apple has been a key player in the growing “smart phone” business. Microsoft has been virtually shut out of “smart
I was thinking about how people seem to read the Bible a whole lot more as they get older. Then it dawned on me. They were cramming for their finals. As for me, I'm just hoping God grades on the curve. Birds of a feather flock together and then crap on your car.
The older you get the tougher it is to lose weight because by then your body and your fat have gotten to be really good friends.
The easiest way to find something lost around the house is to buy a replacement. Did you ever notice: The Roman Numerals for forty (40) are XL.
The sole purpose of a child's middle name is so he can tell when he's really in trouble.
Did you ever notice: When you put the 2 words 'The' and 'IRS' together it spells 'Theirs...' Aging: Eventually you will reach a point when you stop lying about your age and start bragging about it.
Some people try to turn back their "odometers." Not me. I want people to know why I look this way. I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved.
Now Apple and Microsoft are threatened by Google’s “Chromebook.” The “Chromebook” is a PC based on the “Chrome” operating system and is designed as an Internet PC using “cloud” applications and storage. The “Chromebooks” cost $300 to $400 and are manufactured by all the major PC brands. While overall PC sales are dropping, “Chromebooks” PC sales will more than double this year. In the first quarter of 2016 “Chromebooks” outsold all Apple PCs by 37%. “Chromebooks” are rapidly replacing Apple as the PC of choice in classrooms. It all makes sense. Why pay $1200 for an Apple PC when a $300 “Chromebook” does the job. As for Microsoft, why surf the net with a “malware magnet” like Windows when the “Chrome” OS provides a bug free
Ah! Being young is beautiful but being old is comfortable. •••• My neighbor was working in his yard when he was startled by a late-model car that came crashing through his hedge and ended up in his front lawn. He rushed to help an elderly lady driver out of the car and sat her down on a lawn chair. He said with excitement, "You appear quite elderly to be driving."
Microsoft’s heavy handed tactics in trying to force Windows10 (AKA Win-snoop) on Windows7 users who don’t want or need it has revived interest in alternative non-Windows OS. Here at The Computer Factory, in addition to stocking “Chromebooks,” we are also investigating the cost and feasibility of retrofitting a popular Linux based OS in parallel with Windows in Windows 7, 8 and 10 PCs. This will allow a Windows user the option of accessing the Internet with a non-Windows OS thus avoiding the snooping and malware that plagues Windows Internet users. Stay tuned for all the action.
He asked "How do you know?"
"The last time I went to my doctor, he examined me and asked if I had a driver's license. I told him, yes and handed it to him."
He took scissors out of the drawer, cut the license into pieces, and threw them in the waste baket and said, ‘you don’t need these anymore, so I thanked him and left!”

Yes, we Infidels have liberated Iraq and Afghanistan, but we’ve not made their countries, nor their people, depositories of freedom and liberty.
No matter how hard we work to rebuild their government’s infrastructure, educational, and medical institutions, and no matter how desperately they need our help-as the Arab general noted, we can never be brothers to each other.

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

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
