Bruce Krider, and his deep love for dogs truly inspired me to research and compose this truelife storyline. To all of our readership, we value you beyond words. A True Story:

ABUSIVE BABYSITTER EXPOSED BY FAMILY DOG. It all happened less than 7 years ago. In

September of 2013, to be exact. It seemed like an ordinary quest for the young married couple, Benjamin and Hope Jordan of Charleston, South Carolina. The new parents were conducting a very thorough search for a babysitter to take care of their 7month-old baby, named Finn. It was a careful search, after all, their infant son was their pride-and-joy, still too young to talk and, therefore, fully reliant on mommy and daddy’s selection for a babysitter. Taking no chances and leaving no stone unturned, the Jordan couple

took their time scrutinizing candidates and after conducting a lengthy background check, decided on a 22year-old woman named Alexis Khan, the perfect babysitter. On paper, she was far-and-away bestsuited to care for their infant son, Finn. Or so they thought.

There was one other member of the Jordan family that was never consulted in the decision-making. This family member walked on all fours, had a wet nose, a wagging tail, and a

most friendly disposition. This family member relied on doggie instincts in place of human logic and reasoning. This family member was a dog, a black Labrador Retriever-German Shepherd mix, named Killian. The Jordan family never even considered consulting their dog Killian in choosing a new babysitter. After all, that would be silly. Perhaps, even ridiculous.

So, Killian, the dog, was totally left out of the decision-making process. Not even an introduction of any sort. Not even a ‘sniff test’ or a ‘wagging tail’ to flag the ‘okay.’ That would border on the absurd. After all, Killian was just a simple dog, a lower-level of lifeform, unable to speak and nowhere close to human intelligence. The only thing that Killian had on his dog-resume was that he loved to fetch the ball, play with the family, and just loved being in their company. Oh, and there was one other little characteristic the black Labrador mix had as a show-stopper: his loyalty and unconditional love ran so deep that he would, gladly, lay down his own life to save his family. Behavioral scientists have long proven that to pack animals, such as Killian the family dog, Benjamin and Hope Jordan are not only his masters, but by canine instincts, they are his

mommy and daddy, to put it in simple dog terms. And little Finn Jordan, the small 7-month-old infant who loved to play and frolic and hug him constantly, was most deserving of being protected because canines, such as Killian, can sense an infant’s vulnerability in the same way that canines protect their young pups. The dog would lovingly let little Finn Jordan climb all over him without even the tiniest protest. Sometimes a little dog ear-pulling would come into play, but the powerful canine would just passively and gently roll over, seemingly enjoying the roughhousing, sometimes licking the small baby and, like a black sentinel, always watching, protecting, his tiny companion. And so the babysitting scenario was set.

While new parents, Benjamin and Hope Jordan, were at work, the new babysitter was placed in sole custody and safe-keeping of little Finn Jordan. Unknown to Benjamin and Hope Jordan, the first 5 months proved to be one of horror for the small infant who was unable to speak. During moments when a good babysitter was supposed to take care of constant diaper changes, scheduled formula feedings, and shower love and affection. Instead, little Finn Jordan would be tormented, physically-abused, and terrified – all of which is unimaginable during an infant’s formative years, when human mental and psy-

But, in an attempt to conform, I began posting on Facebook as follows: Got up. Yawned. Petted my pups. Went to the bathroom. Closed the door. Finished in bathroom. Got dressed. Put my tennis shorts on, then my shirt, then my Birkenstocks. In the office. Did email for an hour. In the kitchen. Ate breakfast. Oatmeal. With blueberries, almonds, yogurt. Cup of tea. Yummy good. In the bathroom. Brushed teeth, shaved. In the family room. Read daily paper. Yawned. Back in the office. Sent out emails. Organized thoughts. Gave up effort as "too much work." Twiddled thumbs for, maybe, two minutes. Petted pups again. In the hallway. Shouted at dogs to stop barking. Neighbors had company arrive. In the bedroom. Time for mid-day nap. (I will have more of the exciting play by play later, when I wake up).

chological stages are still in early development.

With the family dog strategically placed outdoors, the child’s relentless screaming and crying and overall suffering went on for a steady 150 days, reaching a total of five calendar months. Like clockwork, when the happy new parents would return home, all seemed normal within the household. However, there seemed to be something very odd and bizarre in the family dog’s behavior once he was let back into the house. At first, the Jordans felt the dog needed to be disciplined. After all, the black Lab seemed overly protective of the baby. To the point where Killian would bare his teeth and growl menacingly at the babysitter, Alexis Khan. As Benjamin Jordan would later recall in his own words: “We noticed the dog was getting very defensive when Alexis (the babysitter) was around. He would growl and stand between her and our infant son. His hair would stand up on the back of his neck and we knew something was up.”

At times it seemed as if Killian was about to attack, but the loyal canine was restrained. Such unexpected and shocking behavior from an overly-friendly dog puzzled the Jordans. As Benjamin Jordan further recalled: “He (Killian) was very aggressive towards the babysitter and a few times we actual-

Deciding against any notion of punishing the dog, Benjamin and Hope Jordan spoke quietly about the incident during bedtime. It was a most confusing scenario for them. When they both put their heads together in trying to sort things out, the math just didn’t fit the formula: Killian the dog was widely-known throughout the neighborhood for his gentle disposition. In fact, the dog’s warm and friendly nature earned him great affection from everyone he ever met. No exceptions.

Except for one: the Jordan’s dog did not accept the highly-recommended babysitter! The babysitter they had looked long and hard for -- the perfect choice.

Yet, there seemed to be an unknown factor at play here; something missing from the equation. A large piece of the puzzle was missing. The babysitter seemed a most worthy one. A thorough background check confirmed this. Yet, the family dog’s behavior seemed to imply otherwise. Finally, the young parents decided to go out on a limb and think outside the box.

scheme to her husband, Benjamin. Hope suggested to her husband that the couple should hide an iPhone beneath the sofa, in hopes of recording anything within the household. At first the experiment seemed without justification, but, at this stage, something had to be done.

The following day seemed like any other normal work day for the Jordans, except for one gigantic difference: carefully placed, out-ofsight, the couple had hidden their iPhone. The results would be devastating to them! Later that evening, they played back the iPhone’s recording and the couple instantly became engulfed with terror and unleashed fury!

As Benjamin Jordan remembers: “It started out with cussing! Then, you hear slapping noises and the baby crying!” Then stark terror seems to overcome the 7-month-old child: “His crying now changes from a distress-cry to a pain-cry! I just wanted to reach through the audio tape, go back in time and just grab and pick him up!”

The smoking gun was found and the recording device caught the babysitter, Alexis Kahn, yelling and cussing and slapping the child, ruthlessly!

SHUT UP!!” The mobile phone recording revealed that their infant son was crying for 7 ½ hours, for nearly the entire time he was in the babysitter’s care. The child’s mother was inconsolable with tears: “I know for 5 months, I had handed my baby to a monster!”

Had the dog, Killian, been in the house, he would have torn the abuser to shreds.

After listening completely to the recording, the stunned and outraged parents rushed their child, Finn Jordan, to the MUSC Children’s Hospital in Charleston, South Carolina. Specialized doctors fully examined the small child, finally given him a clean bill of health. Follow-up medical evaluations report that little Finn Jordan, miraculously, is doing fine and has no aftereffects from his ordeal. Though he will be continually monitored.

Benjamin Jordan asked a most haunting question: “Who knows how many children she has abused or how many more she would have – had it not been for our dog?”

If the ordeal of violent physical and emotional abuse would have continued, could it have resulted in actual death for the 7-month-old baby? Medical experts on the case fully agree that, without eventual intervention: “The baby could have lost his life.”

As for the hero dog, Killian, who alerted the family to wrongdoing and saved the life of little Finn Jordan, both the baby and family dog seem happy and back to normal. However, the dog’s amazing heroics have not evaporated, nor has Killian’s keen canine sense of protection gone unacknowledged. Shortly after the horrific ordeal, that protective and loving Labrador-German Shepherd mix began training to be a psychiatric service dog.

And for the record, whenever Killian the dog raises any fuss or antics to further warn his family of any impending danger or possible wrongdoing of any kind, well, the Jordan family is now fully convinced to never ignore their dog again. There is a lesson to be learned here.

This incredible story of dog heroism quickly spread from a local Charleston, Carolina story to national news on television’s Fox News to the New York Daily News and eventually picked up by wire services around the world! Killian, the dog, became an instant celebrity whose story went viral on the global internet.

But more importantly for Killian, he became the recipient of national canine awards for heroism, earning him a special “doggie bag” containing squeaky toys, a chewable Nylabone to enjoy, a specialized comfortable harness to wear on walks, and a delicious box full of doggie treats to snack on! Says one of Killian’s award certificates:

“Dogs are more than just our best friends, as Killian demonstrated. They are our family members, our protectors, and our heroes. We hope Killian’s tenacity and care will inspire people to head to their local shelter because these shelters are full of lovable, wonderful dogs just like Killian.

Oceanside Mayor Peter Weiss, who was appointed to the job in 2018, has declined to run for re-election as Mayor but has decided instead to run for the open District 4 City Council seat in November.

The City Council appointed Weiss in January 2018 after former longtime Mayor Jim Wood retired because of ill health. Formerly the Oceanside city manager, Weiss has never run for elected office. The November election also will be the first for the city’s newly formed District 4, which is an area mostly east of El Camino Real, north of Oceanside Boulevard and south of state Route 76.

No one is an official candidate until they file their nomination papers with the city clerk’s office, and that can only happen from July 13 through Aug. 7. Councimembers Feller and Sanchez, who were both re-elected to four-year, at-large council terms in 2016, have announced they are running for mayor in November.

Meanwhile, political observers are keeping a close eye on Oceanside Councilman Christopher R0dgriguez following the announcement that at least two San Diego County residents have filed Superior Court lawsuits against

Rodriguez, a real estate investor, has been “flipping” houses for years and initially his partners were pleased, the lawsuits show. But the plaintiffs claim he continued to make deals and eventually defaulted on the loans and refused or was unable to pay.

Mary Harper of San Diego filed suit in 2019 claiming Rodriguez owes her and her family almost $500,000 that they loaned him to work on properties in Vista, Temecula and El Cajon. She alleges that Rodriguez sold the properties without repaying the loans and used at least part of the money to improve his personal residence on Puerta de Lomas in the Morro Hills area at the border of Oceanside and Fallbrook. Rodriguez refused to answer specific questions about the lawsuits or whether he used any of the funds to improve his own home.

GUIDE DOG JUMPS IN FRONT OF BUS TO PROTECT BLIND OWNER. On Monday morning, June 8, 2015, Audrey Stone was gathering small, modest items and getting ready with great excitement to journey outdoors and perform her errands. All this animated preparation proved most infectious for her dog named, Figo. Figo was no ordinary dog. He was a highly-trained Seeing-Eye canine, a graduate from the Smithtown-based Guide Dog Foundation, which places about 85 Guide Dogs per year with blind and legally-blind people, so that these disabled persons may continue living wonderful, full, lives. Audrey Stone was born blind. At first, she relied solely on her cane to feel and navigate herself around as best she could. If it weren’t for Figo, she would be living totally alone, completely isolated, as many blind persons are. For Audrey Stone, Figo was more than just a Guide Dog; he was her personal friend, confident, and family member, and together they had forged an inseparable and powerful, loving bond for 6 ½ years.

Audrey Stone often spoke to Figo, carrying on conversations as if he were an actual human being. Figo

you, so she’s admitted to the hospital because she’s having trouble breathing. She may need to be placed in a medically-induced coma and intubated; she may not get to say goodbye to her loved ones. She may die surrounded by machines, with no family at her bedside.

All because you couldn't stand the inconvenience of a mask; of staying home; of changing your familiar routines for just a little while. Because you have the right, above all others rights, to continue living your normal life and no one, I mean no one, has the right to tell you what to do.

often perked-up his ears, tilting his head to the left, or to the right, as if he understood her every word. Sometimes barking with excitement as she would laughingly tell Figo of a funny memory. Figo was her 3rd Guide Dog, so he seemed to enjoy stories before he became “Figo Stone,” a genuine family member.

As Audrey Stone made her final preparations to leave the house, the 8year-old service dog suddenly rose, steadfast, on all fours. He was a specialized guide dog, keenly trained on her body movements, using visual cues as he was trained to do. Even 62-year-old Audrey Stone was not fully aware of his arsenal of talent and skills: he was far more than a Seeing-Eye dog for the blind – Figo was heavily-trained as a protector and his canine instincts suddenly took hold.

Opening the door to her modest house, Audrey placed her hand on Figo’s harness handle and the dog obediently guided her out, then turned so that she could lock her house door. Every move, every voice command or tug sent specific commands to the dog and Figo was a model of excellence in his training courses. He was trained to avoid oncoming traffic. The most challenging scenarios are vehicles stopped at street corners eagerly waiting to turn while the pedestrian is standing on the curb, waiting to step down. Even normal pedestrians, with normal eyesight, are often hit and killed by such corner turns. Just as the light switches from red to green for the vehicle to turn, at the same time a pedestrian steps off the curb to cross the street.

Such trained service dogs are, instinctively, prepared to physically place themselves between their masters and any oncoming danger, be it vehicle or human. It seemed like any other normal day in Brewster, New York, just 60 miles north of Manhattan. A pleasant 73degrees outside. It seemed like a perfect day.

A school minibus with two kindergartner children on board was on its way to the St. Lawrence O’Toole Childhood Learning Center. According to police reports, about 8:15 a.m. Monday morning, June 8, 2015, for reasons unknown, the bus driver didn’t see Audrey Stone and her seeing-eye blind dog, Figo, both legally crossing the street on the crosswalk. Unil it was too late.

As the approaching school bus failed to slow down and continued onward towards the elderly, blind pedestrian, Audrey Stone! Figo instinctively sensed the horror and unavoidable danger.

With little time to react, the large yellow golden retriever had seen enough. The dog’s final action was taken without any needed voice-command or physical tug on his harness. Figo sensed impending death for his vulnerable and beloved master and, out of pure loyalty, unconditional love, and ultimate sacrifice, the golden retriever – out of desperation –

threw his own body out in front of Audrey Stone. As Stone would later remember: “He just broke away from my hand and flung himself at the bus! He just flew up, jumping-up at the bus trying to stop it.” The impact was devastating.

Witnesses said it was the most heroic event they had ever seen. The dog’s final bark prior to impact was as if communicating from his training classes – his final farewell to his owner.

Despite the dog’s heroics, the oncoming bus caused Audrey Stone to fall during the mishap, while the dog suffered the full-impact of the bus. The blind woman had a fractured ankle, a fractured elbow, and 3 broken ribs -but, she had lived. Paul Schwartz, manager of Xtra Mart gas station at the intersection, ran to help out the best he could while police and paramedic first-responders made their way to the scene. Audrey Stone was injured but never in critical condition. Paul Schwartz then ran to the dog, Figo, only to see his leg, literally, cut down to the bone! Schwartz further said: “The dog’s right paw was hanging like a wet dish rag!” Police photos from the impact showed dog fur stuck to the front of the bus’s front tires.

That’s when the fallen and injured blind woman, Audrey Stone, began screaming: “WHERE’S FIGO?!! WHERE’S FIGO?!!” As gas station manager, Paul Schwartz, sadly recalls, “She kept screaming: WHERE’S FIGO?!! WHERE’S FIGO?!!”

Miraculously, the dog was still alive!!

Although badly injured and disoriented, the dazed golden retriever slowly made its bleeding way towards his mistress, Audrey Stone, who was still lying on the ground. Hopping along, with his right paw hanging limply and, though in great bodily pain from the impact, the severely injured retriever finally stood resolute, all fours firmly planted on the ground, guarding his fallen master. When paramedics finally arrived, Figo would not let anyone close. He had transitioned from seeing-eye service animal to guard dog, per his canine training. Brewster Police Chief John Del Gardo told reporters: “The dog took a lot of the blow and did not want to leave her side. He stood right with her. He was there to save her life.”

It remains beyond all human comprehension, how such an animal as this, could have been hit so ferociously by the bus to leave patches of fur on the front tires, and yet – somehow – find the inner strength to find its way back to his master, whom he had been diligently trained never to abandon and to protect her at all costs. Still in shock, the obedient service animal, bloodied and broken, stood its ground, peering downward at

Audrey Stone, then glancing protectively at his surroundings, not giving an inch. Audrey Stone would later recall: “I remember Figo standing there looking at me, trying to get close to me, but he didn’t know what to do because he knew I was hurt.”

There would be as many as 15 EMTs (Emergency Medical Technicians) surrounding the injured Audrey Stone, but from a distance. Finally, with various voice commands, the disoriented and injured Figo knew by pure instincts that the paramedics needed to reach his beloved master, Audrey Stone. As Paul Schwartz, gas station manager and witness, told newspaper reporters: “There were 15 EMTs and people all around her and the dog didn’t want to leave her side. He was flopping over to her and she didn’t want him to get away from her, either.” The valiant guard dog, now slowly withdrew to finally allow paramedics to help his master. Paramedics quickly placed Audrey Stone in the paramedic’s truck, but strict rules kept her wonder dog, Figo, from entering with her. The dog seemed not to understand and felt abandoned.

“He never wanted to leave me. He always wanted to protect me. He often stood between me and shopping carts that rolled down grocery store aisles. Always looking after his Mommy.” Firefighters transported a badly injured Figo back to their firehouse and summoned for veterinary assistance. Some 15 miles from where he was hit, Figo was taken to Middlebranch Veterinary where he underwent emergency surgery. Finally, a waiting, hungry world wanted to know results. The veterinarians gave a news release: “Figo is resting comfortably and recovering nicely from his wounds.”

The whole horrendous ordeal was recalled by Audrey Stone from her hospital bed: “I gave him the command to cross the street. I said ‘forward.’ And we were in the middle of the street and it happened so quickly!”

The driver of the minibus was ticketed by police for negligent driving and child endangerment to the two kindergarten children onboard, and the two victims that now lay on the public roadway. The bus driver was issued a summons to appear in court for “failing to yield to a pedestrian.” Witnesses at the scene of the accident said the bus driver looked as if he saw the pedestrians but maybe he (the bus driver) thought they (Stone and Figo) were going to walk faster. The bus was just turning onto Michael Nenner Drive when it struck both Stone and Figo in the crosswalk.

The entire story went national, then global. From CBS News to USA

Extraordinary Dogs Cont. from Page 5

Today, then around the world, the dog’s heroics were recalled in most glowing terms, even going ‘viral’ on the internet. Eyewitness at the scene used words that were reprinted and replayed around the globe, with words translated from English to different languages, all describing the service dog, Figo: “Brave,” “Loyal,” “Sweet,” and “Selfless.” Cards, doggie treats, dog toys, and even long-distance calls from England poured in for Figo, who had saved his master’s life. The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals bestowed its “Dog of the Year Award” to the golden retriever! From her hospital bed, Audrey Stone summed it all up: “Basically, he would have died for me, doing what he did.”

Finally, after 4 agonizing months of separation, 62-year-old Audrey Stone would be released from the hospital and reunited with her life-saving 8year-old Figo. In a most emotional reunion captured by news cameras, an over-joyed and weeping Audrey Stone told CBS News New York: “I told him (Figo) he’s home, so he know he’s home.” Mr. Wells Jones, the executive director of Figo’s alma mater, the Smithtown Guide Dog Foundation for the Blind, where the dog received his training, was most proud of his graduate student: “We’re tremendously proud of Figo, who really did show a great deal of bravery.” The days following Audrey Stone’s hospital release, the reunited dog and master once again walked the familiar streets of their neighborhood. But this time, Figo (who was fully-recovered), walked slower -- on purpose -to match the still-injured Audrey Stone. Amazingly, the golden retriever was highly trained to adjust his own pace to visually match his master’s. He was a top-notched service guide dog showcasing his arsenal of skills and talents.

Audrey Stone is legally blind, but not totally blind. She was born with very limited vision. What little vision she has, she has made good use of it. She has a special photo album with special, over-sized photos that she can better see. The specially-made enlarged photos for her to better see close-up, are of her heroic Figo, during his recovery stages from his lifethreatening injuries at the veterinarian animal hospital. Stone likes to look at the photos for long periods of time. Just smiling with love and tears in her eyes. Just staring. With the very limited sight that she has. Staring, at her golden retriever, named Fido.

EPILOGUE: Whenever the word “hero” is mentioned, we immediately think of people in various acts of courage. Almost never do we think of the four-footed creatures which adorn our lives, become precious members of our families and, often, sacrifice their own lives so that we may continue living our own. The

unconditional love these animals exhibit towards us is truly humbling and we can only marvel at how this level of unswerving love and innocence is rarely equaled by us human beings towards each another. Aside from our loyal household pets, some animals go beyond the ‘call of duty’ in helping human beings live a richer, more enjoyable life, every minute of every day.

Such is the case with Service Dogs which are trained to aid the blind, physically disabled, and even those with medical maladies such as depression, bi-polar, and seizures. According to the University of Arizona 0.9% of persons with disabilities are partnered with service dogs for a wide variety of disabilities. In the United States there are approximately 500,000 service dogs helping people. The U. S. Supreme Court just recently ruled in favor of a Michigan girl who used a service dog to help with her cerebral palsy disabilities, but was told by her school that she could not bring her service dog to her class. The Supreme Court ruling sent a clear message back to the appeals court, making it easier today for students like her to seek sanction under the law. Sadly, this litigation only reveals how little is still known about the value and requirement of these various service dogs. Hopefully, with articles such as this one, we Americans can proudly defend the rights and privileges of our fellow Americans with disabilities under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

Independence Day Thought

Independence Day is traditionally a time to go to the beach, have backyard barbecues and close out the day watching fireworks. But this year, the celebrations won’t be as wide-spread, the beaches will be much less crowded. The limited July 4th activities may be appropriate since it provides an opportunity to pause and reflect on what the day is really about. 244 years ago, a group of agricultural colonies with a population of less than 3 million, scattered along the coast from Canada to Florida, with no army or navy, decided to declare its independence and take on the world’s greatest empire. Victory was improbable, but miraculously, the colonists won. They wrote a Constitution that enshrined the visionary ideal that free people should be able to direct their own affairs. While everyone wasn’t included – slaves remained slaves until ratification of the Thirteenth Amendment in 1865, and women weren’t allowed to vote in most states until ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment in 1920, it was a start. But July 4th 1776, started it all. The Declaration of Independence

Today, we should remember the truths from our Declaration of Independence, and from the Constitution, that enshrine our inherent rights. Independence Day is not just a big summer holiday -it’s a day to celebrate our rights as a free people.

The Latest at the County

My goal during this pandemic has been to keep people safe, while responsibly reopening businesses and getting people back to work. We continue to test more people than we ever have, which is why we’ve seen an increase in positive cases. While positive testing results are increasing, as we approach the July 4th holiday, hospitalizations and Intensive Care Unit (ICU) capacity remains relatively stable. Shutting down entire industry sectors that employ thousands of workers is detrimental to our economy. If there are bad actors, let’s address them directly, but we shouldn’t close the overwhelmingly law-abiding businesses owners of San Diego County.

Friedrich Gomez, the author, is back!

declared that: “"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights...” These were revolutionary sentiments. To declare all men equal, to state that human beings are born with rights granted by God and not by monarchs, and for leading citizens to risk their lives by putting all this in writing, must have seemed crazy.

On a separate note, I’ve teamed up with Supervisor Jacob as we prepare for fire season, during the COVID-19 pandemic. Fires can be a traumatic experience for families, being evacuated and possibly losing their home. Staying in a big shelter with hundreds of families, doesn’t make it easier. Being able to go into your own hotel room, gather your thoughts and emotions is vital. The County of San Diego has partnered with The Red Cross to provide residents under evacuation

orders the option to stay hotel or motel, or at multiple shelters with fewer than 50 people instead of a larger traditional shelter. The Red Cross is working with nearly 100 lodging businesses across the county to make rooms available in a crisis, and they have identified over 200 shelter locations to provide these safer options.

I’ve also partnered with Supervisor Kristin Gaspar for the “Tour Our Trails” challenge. The challenge encourages safe, socially distant, outdoor recreation. There are easy, moderate and difficult trails so hikers, bikers and equestrians of all skill levels can participate. Completing all five parks/preserves in a category earns a prize and completing all 15 will earn competitors a special limited-edition patch! Supervisor Jim Desmond

Patio service will also be available - Mike’s BBQ is doing everything possible to see to your dining comfort and enjoyment! •••• As we write this column area resaurateurs are on pins and needles, awaiting a ruling from the San Diego County Health Department and State of California as to whether they may have to close their facilities again to in-room dining. The number of confirmed cases of CV19 in San Diego County, if beyond the restricted number, will automatically trigger the shutdown. If that happens it will be as a result of the idiots who did not follow the safe distancing rules, did not wear their masks and did nothing to help prevent the spread of the virus.

I’ve come to know a lot of folks in the food service industry, owners, manager, serving staff, cooks, bus personnel and I’ve become friends with them. That’s why it’s so painful for me personally to see my friends possibly having their income being denied to them, again, all because of this virus and the failure of our citizens to do the right thing. The restaurateurs I know have done everything they know how to comply with the rules; it’s the rule-breakers who make all this so difficult.

People who gather en masse and don’t wear masks, who don’t observe the social distancing guidelines, who intentionally flout the rules and recommendations of health authorities . . . these are the people who are killing the jobs of good, hard-working people. It’s a damned shame. •••• Evelyn and I had the honor of taking Lorene Best, the widow of former Escondido City Council Member and long-time personal friend, Doug Best, out for lunch last week.

Lorene is 94 years old yet she looks to be, maybe, 65 years old. Lorene is a resident of Redwood Terrace and may not have visitors but she is allowed to leave the campus; so, we picked her up and had a delightful patio dining experience at Pegah’s at 9th & Redwood. Umbrellas kept us in the shade and a lovely breeze cooled us. A great experience with a lovely lady.

$1 Million Available for Early Childhood Education and Developmental Care - The San Diego Foundation recently announced the availability of $1 million in Early Childhood Initiative Resilience grants to increase access to quality, affordable early childhood education and developmental care in San Diego County.

The San Diego Foundation Early Childhood Initiative Resilience grants will prioritize nonprofit projects that increase cross-sector collaboration, as well as promote sustainable change and innovation within the San Diego County childcare system, especially given the current and long-term challenges caused by the coronavirus pandemic. “San Diego County is facing one of the greatest health and economic crises due to COVID-19 and investment in early childhood is a critical component of our region’s recovery,” expressed Mark Stuart, President & CEO at The San Diego Foundation. “The San Diego Foundation is dedicated to increasing access to affordable, quality early care for children in San Diego, strengthening families and supporting our regional workforce – now and for the future.” According to research from San Diego Workforce Partnership and the San Diego Regional Chamber of Commerce, early childhood care and education is essential to the health, development and success of San Diegans and the regional economy, yet child care options are scare, inconvenient, unaffordable and of varying quality in the region. Amid the COVID-19 crisis, these challenges have been magnified, particularly for low-income communities across San Diego County. Throughout the crisis, The San Diego Foundation has been working with existing nonprofit, community and government partners to strengthen the region’s early care network and rapid response to support essential workers and San Diego families experiencing finan-

Historically Speaking by Tom Morrow

1945 -- A Most Eventful Year

Of the 10 decades of the 20th century, the 1940s were the most eventful – Particularly the year 1945, some 75 years ago this coming August.

The year 1945 was the climax of the world’s greatest historical event: World War II. More than 50 million people died during 1938 through 1945. The Japanese began the aggression attacking China, then the Germans began engulfing most of Europe, beginning with Poland on Sept. 1, 1939. In 1940, Holland, Denmark, Norway, Belgium and France followed under the boot Nazi Germany.

The year 1945 began with the final decisive encounter between the Allies: the “Battle of the Bulge.” It began in Belgium with a counter attack by the Germans in an attempt to recapture the harbor of Antwerp. The fighting began just before Christmas in December1944, ending in the early days of 1945. It was the last big effort for the Germans, who literally ran out of fuel for their powerful panzer (tank) units. FDR Dies

Franklin D e l a n o Roosevelt, o f t e n referred to by his initials FDR, served as 32nd the president of the United States from 1933 until his death in 1945. He died of a cerebral hemorrhage on April 12, 1945. FDR won a record four presidential elections and became a central figure in world events during the first half of the 20th century. Roosevelt directed the United States during most of the Great Depression, the worst economic crisis in world history. His third and fourth terms were dominated by World War II, which ended shortly after he died in office (August 1945). Ernie Pyle Killed in Okinawa

was He a with Marine u n i t ’s assault on the island Ie of Shima durthe ing battle for Okinawa in the waning days of World War II. Pulitzer Prize win-

ning journalist Ernie Pyle was killed while embedded with the Marines. He was best known for his stories about ordinary American soldiers during the War. Pyle is also notable for the columns he wrote as a roving human-interest reporter from 1935 through 1941 for the Scripps-Howard newspaper syndicate. He attached himself to both the European front and with the Marines as they fought the Japanese in the Pacific.

President Harry Truman said of Pyle, "No man in this war has so well told the story of the American fighting man as they would want it told. He deserves the gratitude of all his countrymen." The “Gadgets” Do Their Jobs The test of the Atomic Bomb was successfully exploded on the White Sands of New Mexico. The development of the bomb began in 1942, with dozens of scientists and hundreds of workers and military personnel at a remote village of Los Alamos. Called the “Manhattan Project,” it was the most expensive project the U.S. had ever undertaken:

Little Boy and Fat Man Hit their Targets

N e w President Harry S. Truman made the historic decision to drop two ABombs on Japan, causing them to surrender. It was estimated “Little Boy,” a uranium bomb, and “Fat Man,” a plutonium device, saved as many as 1 million lives, both Japanese and American. Each had the power of 20 tons of TNT. With the war ended, Americans went home and got on with their lives; the rest of the war-torn world gradually pieced back the remnants of their countries. Speaking About Future History

On Nov. 4, 2020, this year’s presidential election (Nov. 3) will be history. Consider this for inclusion into future history tomes:

The best thing Joe Biden had going for him was support of the liberal left-wingers; the worst thing in his way was Joe Biden.

The best thing in the upcoming election President Donald Trump had going for him was Joe Biden; the worst obstacle in his way was … . (wait for it) … Donald Trump.

Whatever Happened to John Wayne Statue? - An intriguing question, couched in potential controversy, found its way into the History Museum mailbag last week and concerns the sculpture of a late cowboy actor whose comments from decades ago have surfaced in the wake of the current BLM movement. This feature, part of a continuing series about local history, is number 11 in the series. All data is from the Valley Center Historical Society.

Question: After reading news reports and seeing TV stories about a controversy over the naming of John Wayne Airport in Orange County and removing a statue of him from that location, I wondered whatever happened to the statue of the actor that was supposed to come to Valley Center years ago.

Answer: In 2008, the bank that owned the Beverly Hills property where the six ton, 21-foot high bronze statue stood announced it was parting company with the sculpture. It was called "The Horseman" but the artist patterned the likeness after John Wayne. Four entities, among them the Valley Center History Museum, expressed an interest in becoming the new owner, and the local organization appeared to have been given the nod of approval based on the fact that it was non-profit and that the actor had lived in Pauma Valley and

his home had become the clubhouse at the Pauma Valley Country Club.

Recent news reports in print, online and on TV networks cited what 5:33 PM were called racist and crude comments made by the actor. Several newsp a p e r s , including O r a n g e County's major daily, the Register, published editorials and o p i n i o n pieces calling for the renaming of the airport and The six ton bronze statue that removing a never came to Valley Center. statue of Wayne at the Within a year, the bank which airport.

Obituary

Floyd C. Freeman Born August 5, 1936, Riverside, CA Died May 26, 2020, in Escondido, CA

Letters to the Editor Cont. from Page 4 I can personally relate.

My son was a teenage restaurant server at the Wild Animal Park in the early eighties.

Floyd was a Pastor at Calvary Lighthouse Mission. He was a Korean Army Veteran; and a Reserve Officer with the Escondido Police Department.

Floyd was active in the community as an Asst. Scoutmaster, Troop 660 Boy Scouts of America; and with his business, Freeman Equipment Rentals, he sponsored Little League and Pony League teams for many years.

Floyd was preceded in death by his son, Floyd Jr. (Chuck), parents, and 7 siblings; survived by his brother, George Freeman. He is survived by his wife of 61 years, Arliss; sons Jeff (Kate), Willy (Lisa), and Scott (Angie); grandchildren Daniel, John Bennett, Chase, Kai, Ezra, Jude, Avery, and Koa; great grandson, Daniel, and many nieces and nephews.

A Celebration of Life will be held on Sunday, July 26, at 3pm, at the Horizon Christian Fellowship 6365 El Apajo Road Rancho Santa Fe, CA 92067

He was serving after hours to Jimmy Stewart and his entourage. As he was serving Jimmy, Jimmy asked, “Sonny, do you know who I am?” Without flinching, my son said, “No…But I’ll bet my folks do!” There was a long, deafening silence before Jimmy broke into a huge laff. And that is a true story! /s/Thomas Pressley Escondido, CA.

Too Much Change?

Hi Lyle. With all of the removal of statues and renaming streets due to people being upset because of the names, are we going to insist that everyone with a name like Black, Lincoln, Washington, etc. change their name so that they don' t upset the new generation? Our generation learned to cope and respect people for who they are now not our past history, and learned from it. Just a thought.

A Cure for Fear

Mr. Red is an 8-year-old American Pit Bull Terrier looking for a new home. He was in pretty rough shape when our Humane Officers picked him up as a stray, so he will need a caring family who will help him heal. He can be shy at first, but is a real sweetheart once he’s comfortable. Mr. Red has some age-related medical issues, so his new family will need to give him some extra TLC. Make an adoption appointment at sdhumane.org/adopt to take home Mr. Red!

I read recently that during Nazi Germany’s march across France, some 80,000 French people died, not from bullets, but from fear (heart attacks and such). Fear weakens your immune system. On the other hand, “a cheerful heart is good medicine” Proverbs 17:22. I hope you’ll let Psalm 23 help you to have a cheerful heart today.

Psalm 23 A psalm of David. The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing. He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he refreshes my soul. He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake. Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me…. Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever. King David, in a moment when he

needed God the most, realized that he wasn’t alone in what he was facing. He was guided by the caring hand of his Shepherd, the Lord. Throughout the day, God did all sorts of things for him, and for you. The first one was: He made David lie down in green pastures Sheep are, by nature, fearful creatures. As they move into a new grazing area, they’re concerned with potential predators there. Before the Shepherd ever moves His sheep to a new area, He goes before them, filling in gopher holes where they might twist an ankle, smoothing out dangerous places, and setting guards to ward off wolves. God has done that already for you today. Before you woke up, He prepared your pasture. I encourage you to stay in that pasture with Him today. For many of us, that means staying away from other people so that we don’t become infected, and then agents of infection. The critical piece for every promise in this Psalm is the fourth word in the sentence: “The Lord is my shepherd.” Let the Lord be your shepherd today. Instead of saturating your mind with the news, which can make you fearful and sad, listen to His voice. .

San Marcos • Mayor Rebecca Jones 11 water safety tips to use this summer

The City of San Marcos is dedicated to promoting water safety. Use these tips to help prevent tragedy in your family. 1. Learn to swim. Swimming lessons save lives. 2. Never leave children unattended. 3. Read all signage and follow all safety rules. 4. Never swim alone or in unsupervised places. 5. Don’t get too cold, don’t get too far from safety, don’t get too tired and don’t get too much sun! 6. Wear a life jacket. 7. Teach kids good behaviors. 8. Look for lifeguards: It’s always best to swim in an area supervised by lifeguards. But remember, lifeguards are the last line of defense when all other layers of protection fail. 9. Avoid alcoholic beverages. 10. Spit it out: Teach kids not to drink the pool water. To prevent choking, never chew gum or eat while swimming. 11. Don’t use air-filled swimming aids, including water wings, in place of life jackets or life preservers with children. These swimming aids can give a false sense of security, which may increase the risk of drowning.

Escondido • Mayor Paul “Mac” McNamara Greetings Escondido,

I often get emails asking what are you doing about the homeless situation. Well, I thought I would share a few thoughts. First, I chair an ad hoc committee of elected officials of North County. We work closely with non-profit organizations like Interfaith who are in the trenches with the homeless, and with our two North County Supervisors, Gaspar and Desmond, who are actively engaged in this issue. We all want to get it resolved.

That said, and speaking candidly, the homeless issue is complicated. It is not against the law to be homeless, and if you are homeless due to some condition like drug addiction, there is no way to force someone into a recovery program. So, with that as some basic context. Next week I’ll give you some specifics about where we are at with this issue.

Because this column is written a week ahead of time and holidays sneak up on me, let me wish you all a belated but Happy Fourth of July. Please remember, our country may not be perfect but it is great. The greatness is that our Founding Fathers had the wisdom and foresight to establish a governance process that moves us to perfection. Stay informed, Be Kind, Remember your neighbor, and Stay safe! Semper Fi, Mac Paul P. McNamara, Mayor of Escondido pmcnamara@escondido.org

Keeping Kids Safe

Pools, lakes, and beaches mean summer fun and cool relief from hot weather. However, water can also be dangerous for kids if proper precautions are not taken. The Vista Fire Department recommends that adult supervision is present at all times and someone is present at all times when children are around the water. There are many ways to keep your kids safe in or around water and learning CPR is one proactive step to keeping a child safe or teach your child to swim. Other safety tips include keeping a first aid kit poolside and removing objects such as toys that could entice a child into the pool area. Removing lawn chairs/furniture, so that a child cannot use it to climb into a fenced pool area is another safety tip. If you would like more information on keeping your child safe around water please contact Vista Fire at 760.643.2801. Water play can be a great source of fun and exercise and you'll enjoy the water experience more by knowing and practicing these safety precautions.

Technology, manipulation and how to survive. Part II

Last week we discussed the fact that many of the Internet and communication services offered by nationwide providers are so complicated that few consumers are able to make decisions by comparing features. Decisions are often made on the basis of a few superficial attributes and a “good feeling” about the product. As a result, many high tech companies construct their product image around emotional rather than a technical appeal. “You don’t sell the steak, you sell the sizzle” describes a marketing strategy based on creating a favorable emotional

thrilled to share that four more elephants have been reintroduced back into their native habitat after recovering at our partner sanctuary in Kenya! Little Baawa, Nadosoit, Nchurai, and Loisaba were orphaned when they were too young to survive on their own. Thankfully, they had friends like you to rescue them.

African elephant populations are rapidly declining because of poaching, drought, and conflict with people. When poachers kill adult females, their calves often die too. They can't survive without the protection and care of their moms.

Among land line ( telephone and Cable) service providers of high speed Internet and TV service, customer loyalty is not the rule. Consumer choices are typically limited to the phone company and a single cable company (Cox or Spectrum). Many users detest their Internet / TV bundle provider but feel they have no place to go. Eight percent of cable entertainment package customers dropped their entertainment bundles last year in an accelerating trend away from cable content providers. With the monthly cost of cable entertainment packages commonly between $100-150 and rapidly rising, cost conscious consumers are finding alternatives with less costly satellite, local and Internet based entertainment.

expired comes when you notice a substantial increase in your monthly cable bill. For those on auto-pay, it might be several months before they even notice (part of the reason cable companies offer a discount for autopay). When you call them to question your billing they inform you that your promotions have expired. If you continue to bitch they may throw in a couple of extra features or extent your promo a few months. If that doesn’t satisfy you they will transfer you to “customer retention” where they are authorized to offer more generous incentives. If you are not mollified by their generosity and tell them you still want out you will

be transferred once more. Here you will have the opportunity to consider their last ditch attempt to keep you as a subscriber. Finally you will be given instructions on returning the equipment and the amount of your final billing.

wildlife. Sadly, their populations have plummeted because of habitat loss, poaching, and disease. With your support, and as part of the Grevy's Zebra Trust, we're protecting them, saving their habitat, and adding to the global population. We also take part in the Great Grevy's Rally. Join us on a savanna adventure to find out more about this unique effort to help these black-and-white beauties.

Signing on with another entertainment service provider (satellite, cable or the phone company) may save you up to $100 a month but be prepared to go through it all over again when your promotions expire in a year or two. But don’t despair, your old cable company will be standing by to welcome you back with open arms and a new two year promo package.

Cable Internet/entertainment companies are infamous for their questionable business practices. The practice of hidden costs and ever escalating prices are ubiquitous among these companies. Their bait and switch tactics make customer loyalty a scarce item in the industry. Typically the first sign that your two year “promotional package” has

With your support, we partner with Reteti Elephant Sanctuary to save the orphans left behind.

When calves arrive at the orphanage, they're often dehydrated, sick, and desperate. Our partners care for them around the clock with guidance from San Diego Zoo Global nutritionists, veterinarians, and other experts. Then when they're strong enough, the elephants spend their days exploring in nearby areas as they prepare to return to their native range. Today, a total of 10 calves that recovered at the sanctuary have been reintroduced to a protected area of their native habitat. Working with partners, we're keeping an eye on them using trail cameras, satellite tracking collars, and frequent patrols in the area. They are thriving, and have even formed their own mini herd under the leadership of matriarch sweet Shaba. None of this would be possible without your support. Friends like you are saving Africa's iconic species from extinction, and

Giraffes are one of Earth's most recognizable species, yet many people are unaware that they're undergoing a "silent extinction."

Populations are rapidly disappearing and experts know surprisingly little about these graceful watchtowers of the savanna. So we're collaborating with partners in Kenya to learn everything we can about giraffes—as fast as possible. Friends like you have even jumped in to help sift through trail camera photos from our Wildwatch Kenya program. This effort helps us understand how giraffes use their habitat so we can protect it. We also work closely with local Kenyan communities to provide anti-poaching patrols, help with snare removal, and rescue injured and ill animals.

Endangered Grevy's zebra herds roam the plains of Africa alongside giraffes, elephants, and other iconic

And the Unsung Heroes, the Vultures are critically important to the savanna ecosystem. They serve as a clean-up crew, dismantling carcasses and keeping disease at bay.
