Grandma is just white bones now, but before she died, she made me promise to get a dog. “Not a teeny little one like that hotel heiress sticks in her pocketbook, but a real dog. A German Shepard, or a pit bull.” “Why’s that, Grandma?” “Crippled up like you are,” she had said, “you need a livin’ soul to keep your mind off the crap you The Paper - 760.747.7119

school knew she’d be Mrs. Clay Cartwright someday. Clay played right end in football, though he's skinny and slow, but his Daddy’s on the school board. We didn’t throw the ball that much, so what the hell. He loved Candi Anne and his red '64 Thunderbird Classic. They’d tear through the streets of Bluebonnet, Candi’s blonde hair blowing in the wind, red lipstick on her pouty lips, sun glasses shielding her baby blues, clutching his arm as they careened into the “S” curve just past the high school their private Le Mans.

Candi had Clay measured for the ball and chain long before they tied the knot, no matter how his momma conspired to break them up. Grandma eyes the 4x4's that run like railroad tracks up the hill. “This gonna go all the way up?” “Roger.”

“Nice.” She holds out an envelope. “From yo' momma. She asked about you. As usual.”

I don’t take the letter. “I don’t read mail from a convict.” “Convict or not, she’s still you Momma. Grudge holdin’ makes a person sour.” She turns to leave. “Why use wood?”

“I can't lay rock or stone in a wheelchair. Besides plywood's cheaper.” She throws another bone. “In high school, Candi Anne cottoned to you ‘cause you scored touchdowns like Earl Campbell or some NFL guy and were quicker’ n a ghost's shadow and prettier’n Tom Brady.

Lyle's Wisdom - Anytime a woman suffers in silence, she'll have plenty to say about it later. Lyle's Observation:- When someone says "She's not really beautiful but she has a great personality and a fine mind," that means she's an authentic dog with fat ankles.

Lyle's Homily: It always pays to be sincere, whether you mean it or not. A wise old philosopher, it may have been I, the Santayana of Nietzche Street, once said: "People who think they know it all enrage those of us who really do. . . ."

A faint smile. “No, cause I know your insides. Outside, you’re right ugly. Course that don’t bother me, but I ain’t gonna be here much longer.” “Where you going? To IGA for groceries? Orscheln's to drag home a rich farmer?” Good lines!

She almost grins. I lift a slab of plywood from the stack beside the walk, pull it across my lap, turn my chair and roll up to where the next slab goes. Using a long-handled brush, I smear glue on the 4x4’s and cross braces Rob Lee and William Junior set in concrete two days ago and on my belly, use the nail gun.

When the walk's finished, Grandma and I will sit under the pear tree at the top of the hill and count the cars crossing Copperhead Creek into Bluebonnet, if I can stand the excitement. When I die, they can push me downhill. Where I stop rolling, they bury me. “How long fore you’re finished?”

“Two weeks. If my back holds up and this keeps working.” I wave the nail gun. “Why?

“Good. I wanna walk on it fore I die.”

Most language is spoken language, and most words, once they are uttered, vanish forever into the air. But such is not the case with language spoken during courtroom trials, for there exists an army of courtroom reporters whose job it is

Grandma wipes her face with a red bandana, the one I tied around my neck the year I dressed as Scarecrow at Halloween. I was eight or nine.

She says, "Don't expect an invite to the Harvest Parade. Folks don't like seein' soldier boys in wheel chairs. They want their heroes pretty as that Pattison feller in them vampire movies. Blown off legs takes away the romance of war." She and her cane tap toward the house. She flings one last bone. “Your momma likes flowers. Any kind.” Why tell me that?

I appreciate the intel on Candi Anne, but I’m hip. I knew she’d marry Clay from seventh grade on and I’d help where I could. That’s why I bought her a ticket and wrist corsage for Senior Dance. Clay's momma saw the dead mule look Clay has for Candi, so she connived with Mrs. Underwood for Betsy to be Clay’s date. Candi and I danced together until Ladies Choice. Then, she and Clay grabbed each other and disappeared, leaving me with Betsy and her bouquet of roses and $200 gown. Betsy’s daddy owns the lumber yard and Fluff and Fold Laundromat, but he’s not in the same league as Clay’s family. “Looks like we’re stuck with each other,” I say.

Betsy tries to smile, but her face

Mary Louise Gilman, the venerable editor of the National Shorthand Reporter has collected many of the more hilarious courtroom bloopers in two books - Humor in the Court (1977) and More Humor in the Court, published a few months ago. From Mrs. Gilman's two volumes, here are some of my favorite transquips, all recorded by America's keepers of the word:

“Me either. She’s pretty and smart and likes him. Bad deal all around.” “Isn’t your mother in prison?”

“True as an arrow to the heart.”

“Doesn’t that limit,” she searches for the right word, “your prospects?”

“Yes, but I’m not looking for gold, only happiness.” •••• Saturday a week later, Clay and Betsy went to the movie in Freeburg, courtesy of Clay’s mother. Candi texted me, "Perseid Meteor Shower? Hockaday Hill. Mickie D's at 7." With her long blonde hair, tight ass and cheer leader moves, there’s not a running back in two counties who won’t gladly trade a twenty-yard touchdown run to lie on a blanket next to Candi Anne and pretend to look at the stars.

San Diego County Declares Public Health Emergency Over Illegal Fentanyl

The San Diego County Board of Supervisors took a stand against illegal fentanyl flooding its streets by declaring a public health crisis.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the US has seen an increase in drug overdose deaths during the Covid19 pandemic, accelerating significantly during the first months of the public health emergency, including deaths from opioids and counterfeit pills containing fentanyl. A bag of assorted pills and prescription drugs dropped off for disposal is displayed during the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) 20th National Prescription Drug Take Back Day at Watts

On June 25, 2022, at around 12:40 p.m., the City of Carlsbad Police Department responded to a report of a brush fire at the 2400 block of Carlsbad Boulevard.

The Valley Center Roadrunner first reported two men were shot to death in their home Sunday night (6/26/22) in the 14700 block of Interlachen Terrace in Valley Center. A man, Christian Bobila, 44, has been arrested in connection with the deaths.

Police Investigate Arson at the Carlsbad Boulevard North City Limits

Responding officers were advised by a witness that a male was seen lighting an object and throwing into the brush area causing the brush to catch on fire. While searching the area for the suspect, officers located a subject matching the description of the suspect a short distance from the crime scene. David Prosser, a 59 year-old male from Carlsbad, was placed under arrest for resisting officers and was subsequently identified by the witness as the person seen starting the fire. Prosser was transported to a local hospital and then booked into the Vista Detention Facility for 451 PC, Arson and 69 PC, Resisting an Officer. Multiple agencies including CHP, Oceanside, PD, San Diego Sheriff’s Dept, Carlsbad Fire, Oceanside Fire responded and assisted. There were no reported injuries, and no structures were damaged as a result of the fire.

Investigators are seeking additional witnesses. Anyone with information about the arson should contact Detective Chris Collier at (442) 3395569 / christopher.collier@carlsbadca.gov or Sergeant Jon Boyce at (442) 339-5561/ jonathan.boyce@carlsbadca.gov.

Healthcare on April 24, 2021 in Los Angeles, California. – According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the US has seen an increase in drug overdose deaths during the Covid-19 pandemic, accelerating significantly during the first months of the public health emergency, including deaths from opioids and counterfeit pills containing fentanyl.

There were more than 850 fentanylrelated deaths in San Diego County last year, according to the county, and leaders fear that toll will grow by the end of 2022. So what’s a declaration like the one made Tuesday going to change? Supervisors say it will help the county raise awareness about the issue and secure the necessary resources to fight the drug the CDC claims was the number one killer of people 18 to 45 years old in the U.S. last year – that’s more deaths attributed to fentanyl than COVID, heart disease, gun violence and car accidents.

“Your heart just aches,” Board of Supervisors Chair Nathan Fletcher said. “Every one of these lives lost were somebody’s child. And the reality of addiction is for 100 years they’ve said, ‘We just need to punish the person addicted and if we punish them enough they’ll stop,’” and we’ve got 100 years of data that tells us that doesn’t work. SO what we’ve got to do is meet that individual facing addiction where they are in a non-judgmental way

Men, 45 and 79, shot in Valley Center home

On Monday afternoon the Sheriff’s Homicide Unit released the following information. According to the Sheriff’s Department, “The following information is fragmentary and has not been completely verified. It is based, in part, on hearsay and is intended for early information use rather than being a formal investigative report.”

Sunday night, “just before 10:00 p.m., Sheriff’s Deputies responded to a home in the 14700 block of Interlachen Terrace in Valley Center for a report of assault with a deadly weapon. The reporting party advised her brother-inlaw, 44-year-old Christian Bobila, shot her husband. Upon arrival to the area, deputies located Bobila driving a black minivan a few blocks away from the scene. A traffic stop was conducted and Bobila was detained without incident.” The report continued, “Deputies and fire department personnel arrived at the home just after 10:00 p.m. They located a 45-year-old man and 79year-old man at the home deceased. Both men had gunshot wounds to their upper torsos.” The Sheriff’s Homicide Unit responded and has assumed

responsibility of the investigation. The circumstances and motivations are still under investigation. The identity of the victims is being withheld pending positive identification.” Bobila was subsequently arrested for two counts of 187(a)PC – Murder and has been booked into the Vista Detention Facility. Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call the Homicide Unit at (858) 285-6330/after hours at (858) 565-5200.

An Escondido man who drove drunk on state Route 79, where he fatally struck a motorcyclist, appeared in court Monday to receive a sentence of 15 years to life in state prison. A jury in Vista convicted Eric Randall Cripe, 54, earlier this month of murder and other counts for the death of Matthew Garrett Mylerberg on Aug. 22, 2021.

And now battlefield type injuries to perfectly innocent people . . . and to victilms ranging from 8 years old to 80 years old.

Looking closer at San Diego, supervisors say that over 66% of powder fentanyl seized along the southwest border last year happened in our county.

But, then, cities change a lot after 52 years. So do people. I looked for the building where my radio station had been located. We were on the second floor of a build-

People who do things like this do not deserve to live among civilized people. They should be eliminated fdrom society as soon as possible. Doing so won’t bring back those who were killed, or heal the wound of those who were injured - but perhaps word will get out that if you do things like this you’re going to suffer the ultimate penalty, maybe, just maybe, it meay deter some other idiot from killing innocents.

on my bed. On TV, a pretty girl gives three steps to housebreak a dog. “I have a son,” the lady says. “He’s older than you. Wanna watch Sesame Street?”

I have to pee, so I just nod. After what seems like a week, Grandma comes into the room. She’s my Daddy’s momma. “Get dressed. I’m taking you home.” “Can I pee? Please?”

“My goodness, yes child. I haven’t been around a man for a while. I forget their needs.”

I remember that whizz. I wish I could let fly now so hard the ammonium cake in the urinal moves instead of dribbling into a funnel. In a can. If I can convince the VA I lost my wheels in combat, maybe someday I'll stand to piss. The VA’s searching records to disallow my claim. •••• Before Momma got hooked on drugs, she taught me to read, so school's easy. On weekends I ride shotgun with Grandma when she delivers furniture, or takes trash to the dump, or hauls a tractor to a mechanic. When she has a load of livestock for the stockyards, I stay with Shirley and William Junior. When I turn fourteen, I beg Grandma to fill out papers that say she's a farmer, so I can apply for a farm equipment driver's license. It comes and Grandma lets me deliver hay and seed corn for Ray's Feed and Seed. Delmar, who lost his license for drunk driving, is good help, and we get the contract to deliver hardware and small building supplies to Orscheln’s. Grandma says this adds to her profits.

Every three months Grandma makes me tag along when we go to the ladies prison in Chillicothe to visit Momma. The waiting room is gray and smells like sweat and stale perfume, filled mostly with black women and crying kids. A pretty girl in a red and yellow dress smiles at me. “Aren’t visiting days hell?” A guard in a blue uniform, his belly hanging over his belt, brings Momma in, her feet shackled, her arms handcuffed behind her back, wearing an orange jumpsuit with Prisoner written on it. She cries and begs me for a kiss like I'm a girl. She gabs about people Grandma and I have never met.

On the way home, Grandma outlines her plan. “After you graduate high school, we’ll buy another truck. I’ll concentrate on long hauls, you do short trips. You can go to the junior college mornings and work afternoons.” Cancer and two heart attacks killed that idea. My junior year, she sold her truck and ran my life from our front room.

I figure it'll be a small-town life for me. Drive Grandma’s truck. Deer hunt in the fall. Pretend high school football games are important. Fish. Marry someone. Grandma says, “Don't waste your years waitin’ for me to kick off. You’ll hate me later if you do.” At Career Day my senior year, the Marine recruiter and I talk. I enlist for three years.

I come home after Advanced Infantry Training and see Candi and Clay at the Skyview Drive In, where make out artists and families trying to get by still go. When Clay goes to the refreshment stand. I crawl in next to Candi. Her watermelon belly scares me. She lays her head on my shoulder. "What did I get into, Little Brother?" Clay comes back, shoulders slumped, eyes squinty, carrying popcorn, Good ‘N Plenty and a Coke to mix with his Maker’s Mark. There was a reason I left this burg. I see why now.

Coming out of the head, I run into Doris Wannerger. To her, I'm still the high school jock. To me, she’s a pretty girl I’d like to make it with. She leaves her sister and fiancé to watch The King’s Speech in Grandma’s old Ford, nodding at my stories of Marine Corps boot and when I say motor pool is the infantry’s wheels. She wants to be a nurse. About when the King makes his labored speech to the British people on war with Germany, I get my hand in her jeans. That's as far as I get.

The counselors say it's important we cripples stay busy. Hard to do, especially when rancid sweat wets my bed at night and I forget my legs are gone and try to stand, only to fall into a heap on the cold floor. One day I laid there an hour crying before I dragged my worthless ass to the head, pulled on my workout gear and hit the iron pile at the gym. On each exercise, I force one more rep. And one more. And another. Burn away negative thoughts and bad memories, Grandma says. The days pass, each the same. The gym. Sweat filled nights. Grandma getting sicker and weaker. TV. The Kardashians. Fox News. Isn't there one thing Obama does they don't hate? CNN repeats the same shit over and over. Gold Rush has possibilities, but Todd Hoffman's such a piss poor leader I want to scream. He and Big Hoss or Chumley on Pawn Stars would last maybe fifteen minutes in Afghanistan. Ellen is at least amusing if a little light. My Final Resolution comes. Five paragraphs of mishmash that deny my request for prosthetic legs. Something about my current status and no doctor’s request at the time of my last operation.

I miss my old unit. I realize I’ll never rejoin them. I feel guilty

bein’ Stateside. Safe and secure, and every time one of my buds goes outside the Wire, an IED is there to greet him. One night I take Grandma's .44 from the drawer next to my bed and put the cold, oily tasting muzzle in my mouth. It’s my choice. Eat a bullet or drink the counselor's Kool-Aid. I crawl out to the back porch and put the pistol in a cardboard box. The next day I head to the mail box. My wheels mire down in mud. I pull myself on my belly to the tool shed, my shoulder screaming in pain, get a shovel, crawl back and dig the chair out. That's it, I’m building a God-damned walkway to get around on.

Before the IED ruined me, a project like this would take three, maybe four days. Now, I lie like a bag of rice on the plywood to screw galvanized fasteners flush. A counselor’s silly statement keeps repeating. "Keep your mind and body in the same place." He can say that since he has two good legs and a job. I’m a convict’s crippled kid who messed himself up in war. I don’t eat for two days Grandma says, “Feelin’ sorry for yourself is a trap. Decide how you want to live your life and do it.” Maybe, she’s right.

I’ve learned at night if I concentrate real hard, I don't smell sun baked yellow dirt or hear the bleat of sheep when a raghead kid bolts from the mud hooch where he lives with six brothers and five sisters and a mother who never speaks and a black-bearded father and yells, “Sergeant! Reese’s! Min falak."

I turn to wave. The earth blasts open and heat shreds my cammies. I fly heavenward, then slam into the ancient soil like an deflated football, spitting blood and teeth and I can’t hear Staff Sergeant Vasquez, only read his lips, "What the hell?" and my heart beats fast, and I can’t reach my carotid artery, then guys in blue-gray dungarees strap me into a Huey, all because a sack of ammonium nitrate in a shallow hole with a blasting cap and split wire glued to a board so the slightest pressure makes them touch the terminal of a AAA battery, and the world goes boom and I'm on an airplane, and hours later I’m wheeled into a room with maybe fifty other blown to shit Marines and Army guys and a nine-year-old little shit the doctors put back together after a Russian PKM machine gun tore off his arm and both feet. The name tags of those who bend over me read Dr. Kee or Dr. Abdullah or Dr. Cortez and their green scrubs are stamped U.S. Navy. •••• One last day of belly-crawling and solar lights are installed along the pathway. Three trips up and down with Grandma's Hoover and the carpet is clean. Rob Lee and William Junior walk with me to the top. They drink Pabst Blue Ribbon and argue who mixed the best mud or dug the straightest trench. It'll cost me a twelve of Sam Adams for them to plant Old Barnyard Mix

hollyhocks where the walkway curves and Sweet William carnations where it’s straight. Big money this time of the month, but I pony up.

Grandma’s long body is sharp bones when she climbs on my lap. I muscle us up the hill. Dark altostratus clouds hang in the east. Rain, maybe snow, is on the way. The cold wind tears my eyes. The leaves on the pear tree give off death rattles. Grandma looks out at Bluebonnet and giggles. “Mary Louise Stock’s wash is still on the line.” A little later, “Them hollyhocks will grow come summer. Now, get a dog. An Affenpinscher or Akita. You’re different. Your dog oughta be too.”

She dances like the night I scored three touchdowns against the Seneca Indians. "I walked on it. Like you promised." She throws her arms into the air and falls over backward in the grass. What the hell? My heart beats like I’m in an ambush. I should’ve waited for Spring to bring her up here but was afraid she wouldn't be around then. I pull her limp body across my lap, roll downhill, up the ramp and into her room. Her face is pale as ice. The bed's too high for me to get her under the covers.

I grab my phone and punch Shirley's number. The State pays her to nurse Grandma. No answer. I roll to the closet, yank down a blanket, and spread it over Grandma, then hit redial. A lady answers. I state my priority and 10-20.

“A colleague is scheduled at your location soon. I’ll call to see where she is.” Grandma’s breath barely moves her blanket. Did she go join Grandpa?

A car pulls in down by the gate. It seems hours before footsteps sound on the porch. I yank the door open. It's Doris Wannerger. She sees Grandma and drops her purse and blue canvas bag. She gently rolls Grandma to the far side of the bed, pulls the covers down, rolls her back and snugs the blanket under her chin. It takes maybe 30 seconds.

Doris straps a monitor to Grandma. Numbers march across the small screen. "Probably a stroke. Her blood pressure's high. Her body temperature low." She turns to me. “Saw in the paper you were back. I drove by. You were working, so I didn’t stop.” She spreads a space blanket over Grandma. “Shirley's day off. I'm back up. I asked for this assignment when Miss Snead’s request came in. She moved us to town when Daddy died. For free. Her grandson and I went to school together.”

I know. I played with your thing, remember? “ “You all right?”

I nod. My face feels hot. I'd forgotten how green Doris' eyes are. She looks out at the walkway hugging the hill. “You built that, you can do anything.” Grandma whispers, "He needs a dog."

“Shush, Miss Snead. Rest. Dr. Gish will be here soon.”

Doris looks around the room. Drawings and plans from “Carpentry” and “Handy Man Magazine" stacked next to my lap top. My honorable discharge on the wall. Geography books on the floor. My old ball glove and football on the shelf, next to my radio. “You require any special equipment?” “Just my chair. Shower stool. Crutches. The kinda stuff any screweed up Marine with no legs needs.”

She tilts my face to the light. “You look pretty good to me. I notice you favor your shoulder. What gives?” “Smashed it. Titanium implants. Right arm shorter than my left.” “Pelvis?”

“Shattered. Hell, they even built me a new rib cage. I did a real number on me.” “What’d you mean, you did a real number? You blame yourself?”

“I looked at the kid and stepped on the IED. We’re warned not to fraternize.” “Maybe they used a cell phone to trigger it.”

“You know about that?” I’m surprised and I stammer like a kid. “I, I, don't walk. Can’t wear 501’s.” “I didn't know jeans were so important.” Her smile could be a toothpaste ad.

“Wear the same threads every day. It takes me twenty minutes to dress in work out gear. My hips go numb if I'm in the chair longer 'n three hours.” Her hair’s not as red as I remember, but just as curly.

“I know it’s tough, but you're tougher. Any operations scheduled?” “Nope. The VA says I don't qualify for prosthetics.” “Really? Phantom pain?”

“Nights. Feet burn like napalm.” “How do you handle it?”

“Mentally. No booze. No drugs.

Page 6

The counselors say to control the pain with thoughts. Shit like, imagine you put it in a box and carry it out. Deep breathing exercises. Anything to keep the pain at bay. I memorize baseball rosters. All teams. Any year. Or alphabetize nations of the world.” “Good.” Her smile would stop a Humvee. “Use the internet to research?” "No. I do it the old-fashioned way. Books." She nods. “A certain Marine put his hand down my panties once. Ever think about that?”

“All the time. If it’s true, the one on the bottom has the baby, I’m in trouble. That’s my only position.” “Maybe you can research that.”

Grandma says, “I can hear every word.”

“You’ve heard worse, Dorothy Snead.” “Not from my grandson. You need a dog.”

Doris says, “I know where there’s a half-cocker, half-poodle pup. Free. What if I came by tomorrow and we go see it?”

The next afternoon we brought home a pile of wiggly brown fur and black eyes. We named him Homer, after Grandpa. Doris comes by evenings even when Shirley’s on duty. Her smile makes things seem better. Plastic tubes dangle from Grandma’s nose like walrus tusks now.

Twice a day, I help her walk across the room and back. We talk baseball. She forgets current Cardinal stars like Craig and Holiday, but knows Musial hit .337 in 1963. Hank Williams and Patsy Kline blast from my boom box, or Chris Jones and Bluegrass Junction. Jones must be on the air twenty hours a day. Homer sleeps at Grandma's hip. When I ask Doris out, her smile makes my throat tight. “Not while I'm on the case. It's not professional.” So I learn that Tanganyika and Zanzibar merged in 1964 and their GDP is roughly $35 billion. All alone. Late at night.

Doris asks, “Still think you set off the IED?” “Yeah. Lost concentration when I looked at the kid.” “Still mad at yourself?”

“My mistake damn near killed me.” “But It didn’t. What's the lesson?”

“That it takes two legs to walk? I don’t know.”

“Maybe that’s what it took to get your attention.”

Another Problem for Agriculture

California agriculture produces onethird of the country’s vegetables, twothirds of its fruits and nuts, and generates around $50 billion in annual revenue. We are the nation’s breadbasket, and we help feed much of the world by exporting over $20 billion in agricultural commodities every year. According to the San Diego County Farm Bureau, the County’s agricultural production ranks 19th out of over 3,000 counties nationwide. Much of that agriculture is centered right here, in the 75th Assembly District.

But agriculture is vulnerable, dependent on weather, unstable markets, fertilizer costs/availability, and many other factors. We’re in a drought, something that’s not uncommon, but for decades the state has taken no action to increase water storage. If that isn’t enough, now there’s another problem – cyber and ransomware attacks on agricultural companies. Throughout the U.S., Federal data shows that cyberattacks are increasing, with an estimated 47,000 nationwide, resulting in payouts totaling $1.2 billion across all sectors of the economy. With more growers and livestock companies using precision farming and tech in their operations, this could become a common issue. In April, the FBI put the AG industry on alert after a series of cyberattacks targeting grain cooperatives. Criminals may consider agriculture an easy target, one that reaps immediate rewards. For exam-

ple, disrupting seed supplies during planting season, or shutting down a dairy’s operations creating spoilage problems, can generate quick payouts from victims to criminals. The FBI is recommending increased AG Cyber-Security. The measures include:

Backup data regularly and keep password-protected copies offline Identify critical functions and devise plans for operating manually Install operating system updates and patches as they become available Use anti-virus and anti-malware software Use multifactor authentication when possible Use complex passwords and change them regularly The FBI’s notification is available at: https://www.ic3.gov/Media/News/202 2/220420-2.pdf

Agriculture is vital to our state and local economies. As an Assemblymember representing one of California’s leading agricultural regions, I will continue to do all I can to support this irreplaceable industry. Assemblymember Marie Waldron, RValley Center, represents the 75th Assembly District in the California Legislature, which includes the communities of Bonsall, Escondido, Fallbrook, Hidden Meadows, Pala, Palomar Mountain, Pauma Valley, Rainbow, San Marcos, Temecula, Valley Center and

Vista.

5th District Supervisor

Fentanyl Town Hall

On Wednesday, June 9th, I held a Virtual Town Hall, with District Attorney Summer Stephan titled, "What Every Parent Should Know About Fentanyl." It was illuminating and I encourage every parent to watch/listen to the meeting and share it with their friends, neighbors, and co-workers. If you go to my website, SupervisorJimDesmond.com you’ll be able to watch the entire town hall and look at some of the tips for parents.

As summer approaches and teens have more free time, it’s imperative that parents have the facts and knowledge to talk to their kids about the dangers of fentanyl. I wanted to highlight some of the most pertinent information I learned during the meeting for parents and kids when it comes to fentanyl. Last year, the leading cause of death in the United States for 18-45-yearolds was fentanyl. Fentanyl overdose deaths in 2021 exceeded 800 in San Diego County and will continue to grow in 2022 unless there is greater awareness and stronger policies in place.

Last year, I led the effort to direct the County to work with the educational community, and other stakeholders to develop a substance use preven-

tion campaign, that focuses on fentanyl awareness. This effort is ongoing and is just the start. It's going to take the entire community coming together and letting our youth know that one pill, can kill. Another thing to know, there is a new kind of drug dealer and it's on the phone. Kids are getting drugs through social media channels like Snapchat, Telegram, and other platforms, in a manner of minutes.

During the presentation we had Laura Binker-White & Matt White speak about their son Connor. Connor White was a stand-out athlete and a 4.0 GPA student. Last year, during finals week, Connor took a Percocet he got from a "friend" which ended up being laced with fentanyl, and tragically passed away. These tragedies are preventable, but it starts with talking to our kids (and adults) about the deadly effects of fentanyl. Please share this message with everyone! To contact

Travel Troubleshooter

Q: My wife and I planned to travel to Bonaire for scuba diving late last year. Before our departure, I went to the hospital with abnormal bleeding. My urologist told me not to travel, especially out of the country. I canceled my plane tickets on Delta Air Lines and my reservations at Belmar Bonaire Oceanfront Apartments. Delta gave me credit for future use, which I have used, so no problem there.

I contacted TripMate, my travel insurance company, to begin my claim for the rest of the trip. I have been waiting for months for my refund. I have contacted TripMate several times and keep getting the same message that my case is under review. Can you please help me with the refund? -- Stanley Wales, Perry Hall, Md. A: TripMate should have paid you by now. I reviewed your claim. You had a travel insurance policy that covered cancellations for medical reasons. You also had a note from your urologist, on letterhead, explaining that you couldn't travel. Now that's a slam dunk if I've ever seen one.

So what went wrong? I suspect your claim came in at a busy time for TripMate. Simple insurance claims take only a few days to process under most circumstances. But higher-value claims (usually anything over $1,000) have to be reviewed more carefully, and you might have to wait weeks or even months to get your check. I know that because I've also had to wait months for my own travel insurance claim to be paid. It can test your patience even if you fully understand what's going on behind the scenes. TripMate asks for 30 days to process its claims. By the time you contacted me, you had waited far longer than that. You can reach out to the company directly to inquire about a delayed claim. If it doesn't respond, you can contact someone at a higher level. I list the names, numbers and emails of the TripMate customer service executiveson my consumer advocacy site, Elliott.org.

I contacted TripMate on your behalf. A few days later, you received a check for the full amount of your claim.

Problem Solved

Q: While I was porting three of my cell phones to AT&T, a company

Page 7

representative told me that adding an iPhone11 and a fourth line would cost $1 per month over 36 months. It seemed like a good deal.

The representative told me to wait for three billing cycles for the credit to show up. But after three months, I didn't get the credit. Instead of paying $36 for the iPhone11 ($1 a month for 36 months), I'm paying $500 ($13.89 per month). I spent many hours contacting AT&T through phone calls and store visits, and they would not honor their sales quote. I would like AT&T to credit me what we already paid and only charge us $1 per month for 36 months for the iPhone11, as agreed. Can you help me? -- Loc Nguyen, Sunnyvale, Calif. A: If AT&T offered you an iPhone for $1 a month -- which seems like a great deal -- it should honor its offer. You sent a transcript of the online chat between your wife and an AT&T representative. It certainly looks as if you had a promise in writing. I tried to find your offer online to see what went wrong, but I couldn't. Instead, I found a dizzying array of iPhone offers on the AT&T site. And I know if I'm confused, chances are, so are a lot of other people. Some of these bewildered readers may work for AT&T. So what went wrong? It's difficult to know for sure. Sometimes, companies just make mistakes when they handle your paperwork. And yours was a somewhat complicated transaction because it involved porting three numbers and adding a fourth. Chances are, someone just pushed the wrong button. If this ever happens to you again, feel free to reach out to one of AT&T's executives. I publish their names, numbers and emails on my consumer advocacy site, Elliott.org. I reached out to AT&T on your behalf. A representative responded directly to you, apologizing for your billing problem.

AT&T applied the credit for $500, as promised, which left you a positive balance of $82. "Please allow one to two cycles for the bill to reflect changes," it added. Where have I heard that before?

The Nation’s Highway System ‘Ike’ Built

Today, much of the Lincoln Highway still exists as U.S. 30, which follows nearly the same route between Lincoln Park in San Francisco and Times Square in New York City. Today much of U.S. 30 parallels Interstate 80.

by Tom Morrow

If you could credit the person most responsible for our nation’s massive highway system it would have to be Henry Ford, but in reality it was President Dwight D. Eisenhower, (1953-1961).

Early in the 20th century Ford made cars affordable for the average working man but there was a limited number of roadways in which to travel. Few roads in the Southwestern and Western states were nothing more than a two-track mud or dusty pathway cut through the landscape connecting one city or town with another.

Travel in the West was a real challenge, In 1919 and 1920, two future U.S. presidents were involved in the development of our cross-country highway system. In 1920, the first major highway in the U.S. was built by the “Old Trails Road Association,” a private organization that built a Missouri roadway connecting St. Louis and Kansas City. The Association’s president, at that time was Jackson County Judge Harry S. Truman of Independence, Mo. Later, in 1926, the Association determined road be split into several “numbered” highways throughout the nation. A portion of the “Old Trails Road” from Chicago to Los Angeles would later become the iconic U.S. Route 66. The “Lincoln Highway” became the first coast-to-coast roadway running from New York’s Times Square to L.A. The Old Trails Association proposed automobile manufacturers donate 1 percent of their annual revenue to building the various national roads. All the major company heads complied except one … Henry Ford. He declared highways were the responsibility of the national government and not private enterprise. Ol’ Henry was a known miser. He “made” money, he didn't spend it.

In 1919, before there was any real organization connecting the West to the East, the U.S. Army mounted a car and truck convoy to travel the length of the new Lincoln Highway to determine viability of the road. The convoy was headed by Lt. Col. Dwight D. Eisenhower. Results of the Army’s mission encouraged Congress to pass the “Federal Aid Highway Act of 1921, which greatly increased matching state funds. Various states contributed to building and improving roadways connecting to the Lincoln Highway. Eisenhower reported the Lincoln Highway through Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Indiana were in “fairly good shape,” much of it paved, but the roadway from Illinois on to the West, was mostly dirt. It became nearly unpassable during bad weather, especially rain, leaving much of it little more than a deep two-rutted roadway. Until roads were built in the various western states, the “Oregon Trail” often was used by early motorists,

After the Army convoy excursion, young Eisenhower (“Ike”) vowed to do everything he could to improve the nation’s roadways. Years later President Eisenhower would oversee the creation of our modern Interstate Highway system. He fashioned the system after the German autobahn he witnessed during the end of WWII.

Germany’s autobahn was started in the mid-1920s, but its construction did not make progress beyond the planning stage due to the Great Depression. One of the sections was planned as a "car-only road" crossing Germany from Hamburg south through Frankfurt then on to Switzerland. When Adolf Hitler became chancellor in 1933, sections were completed by the late 1930s and early 1940s, but construction eventually was halted because of World War II. Interestingly, the first autobahn section was completed in 1932 between Cologne and Bonn, officially dedicated on Aug. 6, 1932, by Konrad Adenauer, Lord Mayor of Cologne and future Chancellor of West Germany. Today, the “Dwight D. Eisenhower National System of Interstate & Defense Highways,” using the German scheme as a network of controlled-access highways, connects most principal cities across the nation. The Interstate system extends throughout the contiguous United States and has routes in Hawaii, Alaska, and Puerto Rico.

After Eisenhower became president in 1953, his administration developed plans for the interstate system. Construction began in 1956 and was proclaimed completed in 1992. The cost of construction was approximately $114 billion (equivalent to $521 billion in 2018). The Interstate system uses a numbering scheme in which primary Interstates are assigned one- or twodigit numbers and shorter routes are assigned three-digit numbers where the last two digits match the parent route. Example: Interstate 805 bypass for the I-8 and I-5 in San Diego. One-quarter of all miles driven in the U.S. use the Interstate which has a network of 48,440 miles. Because of its heavy use, especially by truck traffic, the system is constantly under restorative construction. However, many Interstate sections are in serious need of repair. Thanks to “Ike,” our lives have been greatly changed because of the Interstate … for both good and bad … good for travel, bad for the futures of dozens of small towns which were bypassed

Grandma’s Way Cont. from Page 6

“What d’ ya mean?"

“Still pissed at your mom?”

“You writing a book?”

“You can carry anger around forever. Or forgive. Your choice. The same with the IED. Stay pissed or accept what is.” “You my therapist?”

“No. Just someone who cares.”

She smiles. I want to cry. “It takes a big man to forgive others.” “So I’ve heard.”

She kisses my forehead. “Coach Howsom used to brag how coachable you were. You still are.”

Grandma's slipping fast. We make her comfortable as possible. Homer won't leave her bed except to eat or go outside. I smear Vaseline on her lips and lie that the Cardinals win every game. Her blue hand is cool. Friday evening she sits up. “Give the ball to 16.” That was my jersey number. “He’ll get the first down”. Her last words. Tuesday, after the funeral, I came home to an empty house. Grandma's room is bare as a winter-time sycamore. Homer prances and whines at my feet. I sit on the sofa, pull him onto my lap and cry into his fur. I miss my old unit and wonder why no one, not even Gunny Sergeant Vasquez, answers my texts anymore and I think someday a kid will ask why so many old men are on crutches or in wheel chairs. "Was there a war or something?" I miss Grandma already.

Homer and I fall asleep on the couch. When we wake, I fix Grandma's favorite breakfast, beef hash, poached eggs, and French toast. I wash the dishes, then roll out on the porch. The clouds are stratocumulus, easy to move with thoughts. The weather's gonna change. Around eleven, Doris drives up. I read somewhere that dogs don’t automatically know if a person’s a bad guy or not. Instead, they read their master’s intuitions and react. Homer wiggles and rubs against Doris like she has a juicy steak just for him.

We hug. She sits in Grandma's yellow metal lawn chair, the one we've had since I was a kid. Homer sprawls, his head on my feet, his rump touching Doris. Sparrows scratch under the spirea bushes. A blue bird sings. I say, “A crippled Marine with a dog would like a date.”

Doris' green eyes find mine. “I don’t date cripples. I’d be honored, however, to go out with a certain Marine who sacrificed his legs for

Page 10 • • July 7, 2022

a cause. He knows it’s not where you start that's important, but where you’re going. He’s the only guy who ever put his hand down my panties at a drive-in movie or any other place for that matter.” She laughs. “I even like his dog.” The wedding was on a clear day in May with a high sky and no wind, the kind of day Marines like because it's easy to work up a sweat.

In June with Doris’ help the VA measured me for aluminum legs. We razed the smokehouse and built a three-car garage with room for my work bench. That’s where we park our Ultra Glide with specially designed hand controls. Doris rides behind me when we go to the ladies’ prison to visit a former drug addict who soon will be paroled. Most nights Doris and I roll up to the pear tree, sit at the glass table we got on Amazon, and look out from where you can see the whole world. About the Author:

Pastor Richard Huls (Retired) WHAT’S IN A NAME?

After reading Frederick Gomez’s article, “His name was not Jesus” (The Paper June 16, 2022) I was reminded of a quote in Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet “A rose by any other name would smell as sweet.” In other words, changing the name would not change the flower. It would still be a rose. Such is the name given to the man (Jesus 5-33 AD). Some called him Lord, The Son of David, The Lamb of God, The Saviour, The Christ, and the 1st century name, Yeshua. He has been characterized by racial color and physical features depending on his followers.Thus we see that changing the name does not change the person. I compliment Frederick on his research and article. Questions that are often asked about Jesus such as “What did he look like?,””Did

Meet Rose! If you offer Rose her favoritegreens, she will be eating out of your hand in no time! Guinea pigs need lots of daily timothy hay to munch on, extra space to run around and toys to keep them active and enriched! Healthy greens and veggies are also an essential part of their diet, as well as a daily dose of vitamin C in the form of a supplement or a slice of orange. Rose is available for adoption at San Diego Humane Society’s Escondido Campus at 3500 Burnet Drive.

Jesus was curious about how people identified him. He asked his disciples, “Who do people say I am.” There were various answers which showed the confusion about him in his own time period. Ultimately, it came down to what his disciple believed, “Who do you say I am?” The irony is not just having a name but knowing what the name means. Yeshua, if that is the name people used, and many use today, it is a call to action. He said, “You call me Lord, Lord, but don’t do the things I command you. If you love me keep my commandments.” The first body of believers called Christian in Antioch believed in Yeshua as the Son of God and the Messiah, the Anointed of God, fulfilling all God’s Promises and human history. So we ask again, “What’s in a name?” For Jesus, (Yeshua), so it seems, nothing unless one does what he says. Pastor Huls

Escondido • Mayor Paul “Mac” McNamara Greetings Escondido,

Recently the CCAE opened an Art exhibit celebrating the Latino sub-culture in Southern California. I attended and really enjoyed the museum exhibit and the display of Low Riders at Grape Day Park. I’m a little bit of a gear head. It was a festive day, full of local pride, and I had the chance to talk with lots of folks. I’m glad we had this event, it was the busiest I think I have ever seen the center, and I would encourage you to attend if you haven’t yet. There was one painting, however, that bothered me and many others. I believe that art is a way one can express their perspectives of the world, and in response I wanted to share mine with you. That painting in my opinion used a broad brush to be disrespectful to our police. As you can imagine, people lined up rather quickly on two sides. One of course being respect for the police and the institution, and the other is freedom of expression and allowing the Latino voice to be heard.

The CCAE is owned by the residents of the city. I think as a public institution it should be used to promote harmony, teach, and expose our residents to the Arts. I don’t think a public institution should be used to divide the community. I am fully aware that some in our community have various opinions about our police and other public institutions, and I think they have the right to share them. I do not think those voices should be silenced either. However, I also think, when we as a community have a controversial discussion, it should be conducted in a respectful manner. I’m hoping that this issue begins a community dialogue where all voices are heard and our community is strengthened.. Semper Fi. Mac

“Nancy hates Donald” Part I of ?

There is little doubt that Donald feels the same way about Nancy. Biden, Harris, Schiff, Schumer, Pelosi and other prominent members of the Democrat administration are publicly mocked and ridiculed by everyday Republicans while Donald Trump has the almost superhuman ability to launch Democrats into frenzied paroxysms of loathing simply by smiling and waving. Politicians straying from accepted political party postures are cast as DINOs and RINOs. Democrat DINOS like Joe Manchin and Tulsi Gabbard and Republicans RINOs like Mitt Romney and Liz Chaney earn unbridled scorn from their party rank and file while enjoying hero status from the opposition. Throughout most of American history, we the people

have always been quick to vilify politicians with opposing views. By contrast the politicians themselves, both Democrat and Republican, for the most part served in government together maintaining a collegial relationship and rarely criticizing one another in public. Politicians from each side of the aisle often formed solid and close and lifelong friendships. Civility, restraint and tolerance were once hallmarks of American political behavior. Voltaire captured the essence of freedom during the early years of the American and French revolutions. “I disagree with what you say but I will defend to the death your right to say it”. The fact that free people can debate, disagree and still respect one another’s humanity anchored our perception of liberty and stood as a defining character of American political behavior, until recent years. Today American politicians have elevated the standards for intolerance. Their restraint no longer serves as a stabilizing force in America’s quest to optimize a course of action. They no longer listen and consider. They no longer debate. They shout down opposing views and ignore or manipulate inconvenient facts that run counter to their agenda. Their highest priority no longer involves what’s good for America. Today political action is taken in the pursuit of gaining and holding on to political power. Each political decision is made with this priority in mind. National Committees (RNC, DNC) determine political platforms and funding based on their best estimate of what strategy will best serve the parties opportunity to win power. On the surface that doesn’t sound like a bad thing at all. It sounds like the National Committee’s are trying to offer platforms that gain favor with the majority of voters. Isn’t that

what democracy is all about? Yes it is, but there is a “devil is in the details”. The task of the Party strategists is to create a positive image for their party while enhancing a negative image for the opposition. Today’s voters are not nearly as susceptible to logic and reason as they were fifty years ago. By far the most effective way to appeal to the average voter is by eliciting emotional responses. We tend to establish our political views from emotional biases set in our formative years. Once our biases are established we tend to reject information that conflicts with our biases and accept information that supports them. The expert who devise strategies for political parties use our biases to create negative and positive reactions. Every fact can be used as a

Cripe’s truck drifted off the eastern side of the roadway, then swerved back to the left into a southbound lane, where it collided with an oncoming 1991 Harley-Davidson Sportster, CHP Public Affairs Officer Travis Garrow said. Mylerberg, struck by the passenger side of Cripe’s truck, died at the scene.

Deputy District Attorney David Uyar said a breath test taken two and a half hours after the fatal crash showed Cripe had a blood-alcohol-content of 0.17 percent, which is more than twice the legal limit in California. Prior to the jury receiving the case, Cripe pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor hit-and-run count involving property damage for a separate crash that happened earlier on Aug. 22, Uyar said.

On May 5, 2020, Escondido Police and Fire responded to a vehicle versus pedestrian collision on San Pasqual Valley Road at Oak Hill Drive. Tragically, four pedestrians were killed, which included two children. On June 4, 2020, the Escondido Police Department arrested the driver, Ashley Rene Williams (28) from Escondido, on multiple counts of murder and vehicular manslaughter.

On June 30, 2022, Ashley Williams was sentenced to 25 years to life for three counts of second-degree murder and

Sixty Five years ago “The Hidden Persuaders” by Vance Packard became a best seller exposing the highly sophisticated tactics employed by corporations in their advertising campaigns to create favorable impressions and enhance demand for their products. Since 1957 the science of using our hidden reservoirs of love, hate, fear and other biases to stimulate positive or negative responses has become far more sophisticated. Today it is a basic tool used to influence our voting patterns by both political parties. Next we will delve deeper into the science of “The Hidden Political Persuaders.”

one count of gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated. "This is an incredibly tragic case where four innocent people lost their lives," said San Diego County District Attorney Summer Stephan. "The defendant was on probation from a drug DUI conviction when she made the selfish and deadly choice to get high and drive. While today's sentence is just, nothing will take away the pain of the victims' friends and family." This case has been a devastating event for our community. Investigators spent many hours putting together this case and we are grateful for the hard work of the San Diego County District Attorney’s office in seeking justice for the victim’s and their families. Escondido Interim Police Chief, David Cramer, stated, “Although this resolution doesn’t erase the tragedy and loss of four members of our community, we hope that justice being served brings some degree of closure and peace to the families and our Escondido community.” .

NOTICE OF PETITION TO ADMINISTER ESTATE OF KENNETH BERNARD WHITE, aka KENNETH B. WHITE AND KENNETH WHITE Case No. 37-2022-00017109 PRLS-CTL SUPERIOR COURT OF CALIFORNIA, COUNTY OF SAN DIEGO 1100 Union Street San Diego, CA. 92101 Probate To all heirs, beneficiaries, creditors, contingent creditors, and persons who may otherwise be interested in the will or estate or both, of Kenneth Bernard White, aka Kenneth B. White and Kenneth White. A petition for probate has been filed by Darlene M. White in the Superior Court of California, County of San Diego, 1100 Union Street, San Diego, CA. 92101. Central Courthouse, Probate Division. The Petition for Probate requests that Darlene M. White be appointed as personal representative to administer the estate of the decedent. The petition requests authority to administer the estate under the Independent Administration of Estates Act. (This authority will allow the personal representative to take many actions without obtaining court approval. Before taking certain very important actions, however, the personal representative will be required to give notice to interested persons unless they have waived notice or consented to the proposed actions.) The independent administration authority will be granted unless an interested person files an objection to the petition and shows good cause why the court should not grant the authority. A hearing on the petition will be held in this court as follows: Date: August 4, 2022 Time: 1:30 pm Dept: 503 Address of court: Same as noted above. If you object to the granting of the petition, you should appear at the hearing and state your objections or file written objections with the court before the hearing. Your appearance may be in person or by your attorney. If you are a creditor or a contingent creditor of the decedent, you must file your claim with the court and mail a copy to the personal representative appointed by the court within the later of either (1) four months from the date of first issuance of letters to a general personal representative, as defined in Section 58(b) of the California Probate Code, or (2) 60 days from the date of mailing or personal delivery to you of a notice under section 9052 of the California Probate Code. Other California statutes and legal authority may affect your rights as a creditor. You may want to consult with an attorney knowledgeable in California law. You may examine the file kept by the court. If you are a person interested in the estate, you may file with the court a Request for Special Notice (form DE-154) of the filing of an inventory and appraisal of estate assets or of any petition or account as provided in Probate Code section 1250. A Request for Special Notice form is available from the court clerk. Attorney for petitioner: Debra L. Leffler Streeter, Esq.
