Volume 49 - No. 28

There are many who say that the American Dream is over, that our ongoing recession and the vicelike grip of megacorporations no longer allows poor commoners like us to rise above our circumstances to better ourselves, let alone become beloved world icons. They couldn't be more wrong. The Dream lives on—and this is the story of a man who did it.
Neil Leslie Diamond was born in Brooklyn, New York. His father, Akeeba Diamond, was a merchant and the family was descended from Russian and Polish immigrants. Neil lived in various houses in Brooklyn while growing up, eventually graduating from Abraham Lincoln High School. Brooklyn life was to leave a lasting impression on the young Jewish boy, with many bittersweet memories.
Although a bright student, young Neil would often find himself simply staring out the windows during classes. He had an undefined yearning, a feeling that he belonged somewhere else. This led to several parent-teacher conferences where his instructors told his mother and father that he simply wasn't applying himself. His parents had no choice but to agree, as they had seen the growing boy drift into his own world periodically too.
He did find one activity that he took seriously—fencing. His grades improved in high school and he entered New York University on a fencing scholarship. In fact, he became a member of 1960 men's NCAA Championship Team. It was a sport he'd never let go. He kept his skills as a swordsman all through his adult life, and was even known to “warm up” before a concert with a round or two of fencing to loosen himself up, a far cry from other artists who'd down a bottle of booze or take a handful of pills. Diamond, as you will see, is a different kind of The Paper - 760.747.7119
man from most superstars.
At NYU, he studied pre-med. But in his senior year he took an offer to write songs for the princely sum of $50 per week, not bad wages for a young man at the time. While writing, he began a singing duet team with an old high school buddy. Both of their records were flops, and Diamond got a contract as a solo performer with Columbia. Although his song “At Night” got excellent
reviews from Billboard Magazine, the sales just weren't there and Columbia dropped him.
Diamond's early career as a songwriter was at the famed “Brill Building” in New York, just uptown from the famous Tin Pan Alley. It had been songwriter territory since the Big Band era. Hits for Benny Goodman and Glenn Miller had been written there. Over the decades song-

writers working at the Brill Building were a galaxy of stars, Diamond, Carol King, Paul Simon, and many others. Diamond's first hit as a songwriter came after he penned a tune for “Jay and the Americans,” which led to a few of his songs being recorded by the band “constructed” by NBC for a half-hour teen rock show. “The Monkees” recorded Diamond's “I'm A Believer” and

“A Little Bit Me, A Little Bit You,” which skyrocketed up through the charts, ballooning the TV band into stars and giving Neil Diamond some heavyweight credibility as a rock n' roll songwriter. Shrewd veterans in the music industry knew that the Monkees were but a fad, but great songwriters were scarce. People in important places began to take note of Neil Diamond. He had written these songs for himself, but the Monkees released their covers of them before he could find anyone to record them with himself as the performing artist. Oddly, it was just as profitable in the long run. Those “in the business” knew where to read a record label and discover who had done the writing, and they took note.
As Diamond was still struggling to make himself known as a performer too, his credentials as songwriter kept his name in the charts. Among the other recording artists who did covers of early Neil Diamond songs were Elvis Presley, Cliff Richard, Lulu, Mark Lindsay (formerly of “Paul Revere and the Raiders”), and even the

English hard rock band Deep Purple. While at Bang Records, Neil temporarily thought of coming up with a stage name. The only problem was, he couldn't figure out which one he wanted. As time neared to release his “Solitary Man” debut for them he simply told Bang to just, “go with Neil Diamond and I'll figure it out later.” As “later” came and went, his millions of fans were glad he never reached that decision. (To be honest, this writer once thought “Neil Diamond” was a stage name, and was delighted to discover that he was wrong!)
On his first nationwide tours, Diamond found himself as the opening act for a variety of thengreater stars, Herman's Hermits and The Who among them. The cheers and thunderous applause assured him—and others—that he could do his own tour whenever he wanted. But Diamond was rapidly maturing as a songwriter and this brought him into conflict with his label at Bang Records. Neil wanted to do more than just rock dance music. He was maturing as a writer, becoming more introspective, more serious. Bang was restrictive and didn't want him to change his formula. They demanded more dance rock like his “Cherry By Jeff Foxworthy:

Bang promptly sued him and Neil countersued, the long and weary courtroom fights bringing on an extended period of low output from Diamond. But, in the end, Neil won the court battles and emerged victorious, even securing the rights to his Bang-era songs and master recordings. Few stars have been so fortunate since, the recording company attorneys sealing up loopholes like cracks in the hulls of ships.
Diamond signed on with another label and recorded the song that Bang was hesitant to support. “Shilo” was the tune that frightened them off. It's one of those rare songs that never made it high on the charts, but remains a greatselling record even decades after being recorded.

Diamond as a major star-“Brother Love's Traveling Salvation Show,” “Cracklin' Rosie,” “Song Sung Blue,” and one song he wrote after seeing the photograph of a little Caroline Kennedy dressed in riding clothes on the cover of LIFE magazine, “Sweet Caroline.”
Diamond often took days, sometimes weeks, writing and re-writing songs to be just how he wanted them. But “Sweet Caroline” was penned in one hour in a Memphis hotel room. And the song has gone on through the decades as a favorite sing-along for many sports teams, whole stadiums of people belting it out, everyone knowing the lyrics. It reportedly started at Boston College football and basketball games, then became the official song for the Red Sox Nation, fans of the Boston Red Sox (although Diamond has been a lifelong fan of the Dodgers) and further research by this writer found several other teams who have adopted it as their theme or play it at certain times during their games. I was never able to discover the reason for this, and it remains a mystery to me. It's a good tune,

everyone knows the words, and apparently that's good enough for the fans. Who am I to question the wisdom of the masses? Like John Lennon said so simply once, “A good song is a good song.”
Diamond toured the United States, Europe, and Australia in 1972. and put two albums in the Billboard top five, “Moods” and the magnificent live album “Hot August Night.” That album became #1 in Australia and sold three million copies—in a total national population of just fourteen million people. To round out the year, Neil played a 20 performance oneman show on Broadway at the Winter Garden Theater. Every single performance was sold out.
The year after that, Neil re-signed with Columbia for a then-record setting five million dollars. His first album with them was one of the most peculiar in pop music. Diamond wrote the soundtrack to “Johnathon Livingston Seagull,” based on the book of the same name by Richard Bach. Bach's book was a dreamy “New Age” bestseller but once Hollywood

got their hands on it both Bach and Diamond disowned the movie, even suing the film's producer. Bach saw they'd trainwrecked his lovely story and Diamond saying they'd mangled his soundtrack for the movie. The movie was met with bad, often even hostile reviews and did incredibly poorly at the box office. Neil Diamond's soundtrack album actually brought in greater profits than the movie itself, and remains among his best work. To this day, “Johnathon Livingston Seagull” is an astonishingly brilliant stand-alone album, a mixture of Diamond's deeply moving songs and soaring, majestic symphony music. The movie is forgotten now, the book out of print. But Diamond's album remains beloved by millions. Despite the awful film, Diamond's soundtrack went to #2 on Billboard's album chart and brought him both a Golden Globe award for Best Original Score and a Grammy Award for Best Score Soundtrack Album for a Motion Picture. There is a word in the Russian language, known well to Diamond's ancestors, that does not translate directly into English. Toska, a noun, represents a yearning, a longing, darker than nostal-

Diamond was feeling that longing so strong it verged on depression. His autobiographical songs, “I Am...I Said” and “Brooklyn Roads” tell of a man knowing he's made it, but looking back at the little boy he left behind. He opens the first song by saying that he loved LA, his new home, but that he missed New York. And yet New York wasn't home anymore. “Trapped between two shores” is how he explained it. It was also in “I Am...I Said” that he wrote, “Did you ever read about a frog who dreamed of being a king, And then became one? Well, except for the names and a few other changes, you could talk about me, The story's the same one.” He still had painful memories of walking the streets of New York City, playing in bars with a guitar he'd bought on payments. At one point his wages were such that he could afford a cold-water flat, make the payments on his guitar, and after carefully doing the math he realized he would have one dollar and some pennies left

Even though he'd made it, even though he'd never have to worry about money again, it seemed to come as something of a shock to the man from a working class background. And true to his roots, he never stopped working. More writing and recording followed quickly. He wrote “You Don't Bring Me Flowers,” Diamond writing the tune and collaborating with Allan and Marilyn Bergman on the lyrics. Barbara Streisand covered the song too, and soon radio stations all over the country were doing home-brewed “mash-ups” of the two singing together. Finally, they did record the song as a duet. That song went to #1 in 1979, Neil's third number one single. Diamond's record sales slumped a bit in the 80's and 90's, although wherever he appeared live the house sold out in record time.

The former Escondido Country Club could become a 380-house development soon following a settlement of a lawsuit, the last hurdle before construction can begin. Agreement between homeowner’s group and development company New Urban West should clear the way for 380 homes.
After six long years of controversy and community divisiveness, the battle over the development of the former Escondido Country Club land is over. In a statement issued jointly Wednesday by a homeowners’group and development company New Urban West, the two sides announced they had reached a settlement that should clear the way for construction of 380 homes on the 109 acres of the former golf course in northwest Escondido.
New Urban West will pay the Escondido Country Club Homeowners Organization (ECCHO) a bit more than $763,000 as part of the agreement, a figure that represents the amount of money opponents have spent on lawyers, consultants and experts over the years while battling development plans, ECCHO attorney Everett DeLano said. In 2017, a split Escondido City Council approved New Urban West’s “The Villages” project, but ECCHO filed a lawsuit challenging
the approval on numerous grounds.
ECCHO, comprised of homeowners who live near the golf course, have been fighting development plans since 2013.
Last November, a Superior Court judge ruled in favor of the city and dismissed the legal case, but ECCHO filed an appeal that threatened to delay construction for a year or longer depending on future judgments.
New Urban West then said it was open to settlement negotiations that could include reimbursing ECCHO all the money it had spent in the past half-decade. The settlement does not include a reduction in the number of homes that were approved for the acreage. The development company has said for several years that 380 homes were the least that could be built if the project were to be economically sound.
“We are pleased to have reached an agreement with ECCHO that makes the organization and its members financially whole, ends all litigation, and allows the longawaited revitalization of the Escondido Country Club to proceed,” New Urban West said in the statement. “Fortunately, for everyone, this long saga is now over. The blight will soon be cleared, property values will benefit, and the people of this community can begin to heal and come together.” Added ECCHO in the statement:

We often say that about Cindy, our “Chug” (Chihuahua/Pug mix). With her pug nose, somewhat bowed legs, and big, brown eyes, she is a sight to see. And love. Sad to report some devastating news about our Chug, Cindy.

I told Evelyn that, at one time, a diagnosis of leukemia was an almost certain death warrant. But great strides have been made. If they can make leukemia go into remission with humans surely they can with a dog? Indeed, our vet confirmed that. However, when I asked him if Cindy’s leukemia did go into remission, could we expect her to live her normal life cycle? “No,” he said. “Her life will be fore-shortened . . . but you would likely have her in reasonable good health for, perhaps, two years.
When my dad died, I didn't cry. (He was 92). When I told my exwife, Mary, about Cindy this morning, I broke down and bawled. Just at the thought of possibly having to put Cindy down. I've done that three times with other fur-babies and I don't wanna do it a fourth time. It never gets easier.

“Over the past six years, our community has endured great pain, stress and uncertainty. Today, that all ends.”
A spokesman for the city’s planning department Wednesday said work on the development plans has been proceeding at City Hall this year and though there are still some steps to be taken, he guessed construction could begin as early as the fall.
The future of the property has been hotly debated ever since the Country Club land was purchased in late 2012 by Michael Schlesinger, a Beverly Hills land speculator who shuttered the club and golf course a few months later, saying it was financially unsustainable. A series of court challenges, a public vote, a well-publicized chicken manure incident, and other things ensued as residents of the area protested development plans. Schlesinger sued the city, saying the City Council’s move in 2013 declaring the property could only be used for recreation or open space, violated his property rights. A judge agreed and the city then settled that suit. Schlesinger then chose New Urban West to pursue development permits and agreed to sell them the land only after all permissions to build had been obtained, and only after all litigation had ceased. As part of the settlement announced Wednesday, ECCHO said it won several concessions from the developer aside from the cash.
or I pick one of the dogs up, or give it more attention than the other, there will be a battle royal between them - to the point of drawing blood. Five minutes later Trixie/Amber is kissing Cindy and giving her a bath. If we take Cindy to the vet and Cindy does not come back home, Trixie/Amber will go nuts searching the house for her and, no doubt, wonder why mommy and daddy are crying so much. Hoping for the best but fully realize that sometimes life just ain't fair. (* I call our other rescue pup "Trixie," Evelyn calls the same pup "Amber.") Tomorrow we take Cindy for further tests with a vet in Carlsbad who specializes in treating various cancers. Whatever Cindy needs, she shall have.

Letters to the Editor Response to the National Cemeteries Article
Hi Pete. I feel like I know you from The Paper.
My husband died late 2017 and left instructions I had not seen. He had made arrangements to be buried at "Miramar Cemetery." A neighbor offered to take over the burial as I was too distraught. When he drove me to "Miramar" I kept telling him Miramar was north east and not south west. He kept driving as it was "Miramar National Cemetery". I was unaware of it.

I became more and more impressed with both Jacque and Gracie. They were both devout members of Baha’i and practiced being a friend to all. Jacque’s funeral service was yesterday, July 10th, at Miramar. I only learned of his passing and his service earlier this week or I would have had this message in last week’s column.
When Jacque and Gracie first married he told her of his plans. "I'm gonna make the Navy my career. Once I retire I'm gonna devote my life to public/community service."
He served as a deep sea diver for the Navy, retired, and then did what he had planned on doing as a very young man. He had a plan and stuck to it. How many of us make a life plan in our late teens and then follow that plan? Jacque did. Jacque Smith was one of the nicest, kindest, and greatest persons I have ever known. He and Gracie made a perfect couple. He was generally regarded as "Mr. Kiwanis," during all the years he was a member of the Hidden Valley Kiwanis Club.
I am proud to have called him my friend. My deepest condolences to Gracie Smith. Jacque and I had at least

was the most profitable solo performer in 1986. Whether he had been fencing just moments before coming onstage or not, Diamond appeared onstage as a dynamo of sheer energy. This writer saw him perform live twice (so far) and I enjoyed his concerts more than even the Rolling Stones—and that's saying a lot. But while he can be brooding and introspective on some songs, and wildly cheerful or simply relaxed on others, his music ranges from rock to pop to folk and country. He's a hard man to pin down. What kind of man is he really? Here's a good place to start—he once caught a savage case of laryngitis just before a concert he was to give at Ohio State University. Once again, the place was sold out. Intent on keeping his commitments, he went onstage—and gave a memorably poor performance. Afterwards, he took out local ads apologizing to his fans for the terrible performance. He told them what had happened, and added that he'd never let his fans down before and wouldn't let them down now. Then, out of his own pocket, he offered to refund the price of the

tickets for everyone present. The University made money. The promoters made money. The band was paid. The roadies and crews were paid. Diamond alone took responsibility and gave the folks their money back, promising to do better next time. That says more about Neil Diamond than a 50-page psychological report.
And he's not without a good sense of humor. On “Saturday Night Live” Will Ferrell did a recurring and often unflattering impersonation of Neil Diamond. During Ferrell's last appearance as an SNL regular, Diamond joined him onstage for his last impression. During a late-night episode of “The Jimmy Kimmel Show” Kimmel tried to sing “Sweet Caroline” and, as part of a skit, was arrested onstage for doing such a lousy job of it. The camera then cut to Neil Diamond on the roof of Kimmel's building, singing the song himself. Diamond's Twitter name is “yfrog.” When the TV show “American Idol” was scheduled on April 28 and 29, 2008, for the remaining contestants to sing Neil Diamond songs, he showed up in person to mentor and coach them, helping them wring all they

Neil Diamond's latest album, “Home Before Dark,” was released on May 6, 2008. Nine days later it was #1 on Billboard's Hot 200 chart. It became the #1 album in the UK charts three days after that. Those who follow him on Twitter know he's working on a new album now, and he's going to play an electric guitar, a first for him. Who knows what music that baritone voice will bring us next? And when he wants to, that man can rock.
While generally a private man, his discography says enough for him. On May 2, 2008 Sirius Satellite Radio simply gave him his own channel, “Neil Diamond Radio.” His albums include 18 that went gold, 11 that became platinum, seven which went 2x platinum, two which went 3x platinum, one which sold four million copies (4x platinum), and still another which reached an incredible 5x platinum, a sales of five million copies. No one has any figures for individual ticket sales to his live concerts, or the millions who have seen him on various television specials.

If you ever have the opportunity to attend one of his concerts, by all means do so. You'll be seeing a living legend, a “solitary man” completely self-made, the little boy who looked out the window during school that mastered a strict work ethic and never let it go. His talent is beyond compare, but he remains one of us, a hard-working man, one lucky enough to love his job and be excellent at it.

The Paper • Page 6 • July 11, 2019
A WWII pilot glanced outside his cockpit and froze. He blinked hard and looked again, hoping it was just a mirage. But his co-pilot stared at the same horrible vision. "My God, this is a nightmare," the co-pilot said."He's going to destroy us!”
The men were looking at a gray German Messerschmitt fighter hovering just three feet off their wingtip. It was five days before Christmas 1943, and the fighter had closed in on their crippled American B-17 bomber for the kill. The B-17 Pilot, Charles Brown, was a 21-year-old West Virginia farm boy on his first combat mission. His bomber had been shot to pieces by swarming fighters, and his plane was alone, struggling to stay in the skies above Germany. Half his crew was wounded, and the tail gunner was dead.
But when Brown and his co-pilot, Spencer "Pinky" Luke, looked at the fighter pilot again, something odd happened. The German didn't pull the trigger. He stared back at the bomber in amazement and respect. Instead of pressing the attack, he nodded at Brown and saluted. What happened next was one of the most remarkable acts of chivalry recorded during World War Il.
Franz Stigler pressed his hand over the rosary he kept in his flight jacket. He eased his index finger off the trigger. He couldn't shoot. It would be murder. Stigler wasn't just motivated by vengeance that day. He also lived by a code. He could trace his family's ancestry to Knights in 16th century Europe. He had once studied to be a priest. A German pilot who spared the enemy, though, risked death in Nazi Germany. If someone reported him, he would be executed. Yet, Stigler could also hear the voice of his commanding officer, who once told him: "You follow the rules of war for you--not your enemy. You fight by rules to keep your humanity."
Sea and took one last look at the American Pilot. Then he saluted him, peeled his fighter away, and returned to Germany.
"Good luck," Stigler said to himself. "You're in God's hands now." Franz Stigler didn't think the big B-17 could make it back to England and wondered for years what happened to the American pilot and crew he encountered in combat.
As he watched the German fighter peel away that December day, 2nd Lt. Charles Brown wasn't thinking of the philosophical connection between enemies. He was thinking of survival. He flew his crippled plane, filled with wounded, back to his base in England and landed with one of four engines knocked out, one failing, and barely any fuel left. After his bomber came to a stop, he leaned back in his chair and put a hand over a pocket Bible he kept in his flight jacket. Then he sat in silence.
Brown flew more missions before the war ended. Life moved on. He got married, had two daughters, supervised foreign aid for the U.S. State Department during the Vietnam War, and eventually retired to Florida. Late in life, though, the encounter with the German pilot began to gnaw at him. He started having nightmares, but in his dream there would be no act of mercy. He would awaken just before his bomber crashed. Brown took on a new mission. He had to find that German pilot. Who was he? Why did he save my life? He scoured military archives in the U.S. and England. He attended a Pilots' Reunion and shared his story. He finally placed an ad in a German Newsletter for former Luftwaffe Pilots, retelling the story and asking if anyone knew the pilot. On January 18, 1990, Brown received a letter. He opened it and read: "Dear Charles, All these years I wondered what happened to that B-
Wildfires, and the Aftermath
Fifteen of California's 20 most destructive wildfires have occurred since 2000, with ten since 2015. Economic costs to homeowners, utilities, ratepayers, insurers and local governments resulting from the destruction of thousands of homes makes preventing fires and dealing with their costly aftermath top-priority issues in Sacramento. Proposals discussed include creating a Power Company Safety and Accountability standard requiring safety investments by utility companies, mandating accountability for their wildfire safety record, and protecting ratepayers from sole financial responsibility for utilitycaused fires. A new Wildfire Safety Division within the CPUC could be created to oversee and enforce safety compliance by investor-owned utilities to develop wildfire safety performance metrics, improvements to wildfire mitigation plans and other safety initiatives. Discussions also center around creating a catastrophic wildfire victims fund to assist homeowners and insurers by streamlining fire victim recovery. Instead of insurance companies filing lawsuits against utilities to recoup their losses, a process that takes years, claims could be filed directly with the fund. Concern over homeowner insurance being non-renewed is also a retired, Stigler told Brown that he would be in Florida come summer, and "it sure would be nice to talk about our encounter." Brown was so excited, though, that he couldn't wait to see Stigler. He called Directory Assistance for Vancouver and asked whether there was a number for a Franz Stigler. He dialed the number, and Stigler picked up. "My God, it's you!" Brown shouted as tears ran down his cheeks.

Alone with the crippled bomber, Stigler changed his mission. He nodded at the American pilot and began flying in formation so German anti-aircraft gunners on the ground wouldn't shoot down the slow-moving bomber. (The Luftwaffe had B-17's of its own, shot down and rebuilt for secret missions and training.) Stigler escorted the bomber over the North
17, did she make it home? Did her crew survive their wounds? To hear of your survival has filled me with indescribable joy." It was Stigler.
He had left Germany after the war and moved to Vancouver, British Columbia in 1953. He became a prosperous businessman. Now
Brown had to do more. He wrote a letter to Stigler in which he said: "To say THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU on behalf of my surviving crew members and their families appears totally inadequate."
The two pilots would meet again, but this time in person, in the lobby of a Florida hotel. One of Brown's friends was there to record the summer reunion. Both men looked like retired businessmen: They were plump, sporting neat ties and formal shirts. They fell into each other's arms and wept and laughed. They talked about their encounter in a light, jovial tone.
The cost of inaction will be a significant hit to ratepayers as utility companies will risk being downgraded in their credit rating, meaning it will cost more to obtain capital for system operations, which adds a significant risk premium to attract capital. It is estimated that this risk premium would add about $14.40/month to the average residential customer’s monthly bill! To address this is a proposal to continue the current charge (currently at ½ a cent per kWh) of $2.50/month to the average residential customer’s bill and protect the utility companies from being downgraded in investment, saving potentially millions for ratepayers.
These proposals are in progress with final details to be developed as soon as next week. As your representative from a high fire risk area, I have been actively engaged. Assembly Republican Leader Marie Waldron, R-Escondido, represents the 75th Assembly District in the California Legislature, which includes the communities of Bonsall, Escondido, Fallbrook, Hidden Meadows, Pala, Palomar Mountain, Pauma Valley, Rainbow, San Marcos, Temecula, Valley Center and Vista.
The mood then changed. Someone asked Stigler what he thought about Brown. Stigler sighed and his square jaw tightened He began to fight back tears before he said in heavily accented English, "I love you, Charlie." Stigler had lost his brother, his friends, and his country. He was virtually exiled by his countrymen after the war. There were 28,000 pilots who fought for the German Air Force. Only 1,200 survived. The war cost him everything. Charlie Brown was the only good thing that came out of World War II for Franz. It was the one thing he could be proud of. The meeting helped Brown as well, says his oldest daughter, Dawn Warner.
They met as enemies but Franz Stigler and Charles Brown, ended up as fishing buddies.
Brown and Stigler became pals. They would take fishing trips together. They would fly crosscountry to each other’s homes and take road trips together to share their story at schools and veterans' reunions. Their wives, Jackie Brown and Hiya Stigler, became friends. Brown's daughter says her father would worry about Stigler's health

and constantly check in on him. "It wasn't just for show," she says. "They really did feel for each other. They talked about once a week." As his friendship with Stigler deepened, something else happened to her father, Warner says "The nightmares went away." Brown had written a letter of thanks to Stigler, but one day he showed the extent of his gratitude. He organized a reunion of his surviving crew members along with their extended families. He invited Stigler as a Guest of Honor.
During the reunion, a video was played showing all the faces of the people that now lived--children, grandchildren, relatives--because of Stigler's act of chivalry. Stigler watched the film from his Seat of Honor. "Everybody was crying, not just him," Warner says.
Stigler and Brown died within months of each other in 2008. Stigler was 92, and Brown was 87. They had started off as enemies, became friends, and then something more.

"In 1940, I lost my only brother as a night fighter. On the 20th of December, 4 days before Christmas, I had the chance to save a B-17 from her destruction, a plane so badly damaged, it was a wonder that she was still flying. The pilot, Charlie Brown, is for me as precious as my brother was. Thanks Charlie.
In case you missed this particular class in third grade, let me tell you about a true American patriot: Elizabeth Griscom “Betsy” Ross, who was born Jan. 1, 1752. She was an American seamstress/upholsterer whose work is still admired throughout the world. She’s credited with making the first American flag known today as the “Betsy Ross flag.”
According to Ross family history, a 1776 visit by General George Washington and two congressional members visited Mrs. John Ross, showing her a sketch of what General Washington designed. The sketch had 13 stars in a field of blue, situated in a circle above 13 red and white strips.
Mrs. Ross had been making flags for the Pennsylvania navy during the American Revolution, so it was not a difficult task. In 1775, Pennsylvania naval committee headed by Benjamin Franklin and George Ross, (uncle of John Ross), ordered the construction of gunboats that would eventually need flags.
After he died, Warner was searching through Brown's library when she came across a book on German fighter jets. Stigler had given the book to Brown. Both were country boys who loved to read about planes. Warner opened the book and saw an inscription Stigler had written to Brown:
She Was An Original American Patriot

Your brother, Franz
The two families reunited, left Charlie Brown and wife,Jackie, right, Franz Stigler and wife, Hiya.
The American Revolutionary War broke out when Betsy and John had been married for only two years. John Ross was assigned to guard munitions and, according to one legend, was killed by a gunpowder explosion, but family members have doubts about this story. As a 24-yearold widow, Betsy continued working in the upholstery business repairing uniforms and making tents, blankets, and stuffed paper tube cartridges with musket balls for prepared packaged ammunition in 1779 for the Continental Army – and, yes, flags. Her work for the revolution was every bit as important as any soldier on the field of battle.
There is speculation Betsy was the "beautiful young widow" who distracted Hessian general Carl von Donop in Mount Holly, New Jersey, after the Battle of Iron Works Hill. This kept von Donop’s forces out of the crucial "turning-of-the-tide" Battle of Trenton on the morning of Dec. 26, 1776, when the Hessian and British troops were defeated after Washington’s crossing of the Delaware River.
On June 15, 1777, she married her second husband, mariner Joseph Ashburn. In 1780, Ashburn's ship was captured by a Royal Navy frigate and he was charged with treason (for being of British ancestry— naturalization to American colonial citizenship was not recognized). He was imprisoned at Old Mill Prison in England. Ashburn died while in prison.
Three years later, in May 1783, she
married John Claypoole, who had earlier met Joseph Ashburn in the English Old Mill Prison. Claypoole had informed Betsy of her husband’s prison death. The Claypoole couple would have five daughters.
In 1793, Betsy’s mother, father, and sister all died in a severe yellow fever epidemic. In 1817, after two decades of poor health, John Claypoole died. Betsy continued her upholstery business for 10 more years. Upon retirement, she moved in with her second Claypoole daughter, Susanna, in Abington Township of Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. Her eldest Claypoole daughter, Clarissa, had taken over Ross' business back in Philadelphia. Betsy, by then completely blind, spent her last three years living with her middle Claypoole daughter, Jane, in rapidly growing and industrializing Philadelphia. Betsy Ross Claypoole died on Jan. 30, 1836, at the age of 84, some 60 years after the Declaration of Independence. She was survived by five daughters with John Claypoole and one sister, Hannah Griscom Levering, who herself died about 11 months later.
Although it is one of the most visited tourist sites in the city of Philadelphia, the claim she once lived at the so-called "Betsy Ross House" is still a matter of historical dispute. Betsy Ross's body was first interred at the Free Quaker burial grounds on North Fifth Street in Philadelphia. However, in 1975, in preparation for the American Bicentennial, Philadelphia city leaders ordered her remains moved to the courtyard of the Betsy Ross House. But cemetery workers found no remains beneath her tombstone. Bones found elsewhere in the family plot were deemed to be hers and moved to the current grave now visited by tourists at the Betsy Ross House. Today’s nay-sayers, as well as those who are just plain ignorant of our nation’s history, should take the time to read about Betsy Ross, one of our earliest patriots and arguably the nation’s first feminist. Any thought of the Betsy Ross Flag being offensive to anyone who calls themselves an American is true folly. Betsy’s flag is a symbol every patriotic American should be proud of and continues to be recognized as an official national symbol. Anyone “offended,” by the banner George Washington designed, no doubt, has been listening to history revisionists who will find fault with anything patriotic. They all should put their big-boy pants on and stand tall with hand over heart. Tom Morrow's books are available at Amazon.com in soft-cover or via Kindle E-mail.

Harrison’s two children went to a scout camp at Mission Bay. “The used gear they had was unacceptable for a kid’s fishing program.” The club bought 25 new saltwater rigs, and will rehabilitate them every year, adding new reels when needed. “The purpose of the OSA Foundation is to support cost free fishing and outdoor recreation opportunities for kids, scouts, and military,” said Harrison. “We’ve seen a huge decline of interest in outdoor sports over the years. We know that out of each of these camps, a few lifelong fishermen will be born.” The fishing club has also adopted the fishing programs of Boy Scout Camp Fiesta Island in Mission Bay, and Girl Scout Camp Winacka in Julian. For its weekly summer camp programs, the Warner Springs Boy Scout camp hosts a fully stocked pond with large Blue Gill, Bass, and Catfish. “All the kids catch fish,” said Henry Hall, the Boy Scout Council’s volunteer advisor to its fishing programs. Boy Scout officials report around 2,000 scouts will have access to the fishing gear over the camp’s summer season.

From Fredbird to Bernie Brewer, to Slider, to the Phillie Phanatic, mascots have been a relatively new and entertaining innovation to Major League Baseball.
Although Max Patkin, the “Clown Prince of Baseball”, a former minor league player, was not an “official” mascot, he entertained fans from 1944 to 1993. How Patkin got started is a story in itself. While pitching for a military team in Hawaii in 1944, Joe Di Maggio hit a home run off of him. Patkin threw his glove down and mockingly followed Di Maggio around the bases. Patkin later played himself in the movie, Bull Durham.
Of course, probably the most famous of all mascots is the San Diego Chicken. In 1974, a representative of a San Diego radio station went to the radio studio at San Diego State University, looking for someone to fit into a chicken costume, and represent his station at the San Diego Zoo for an Easter promotion. Ted Giannoulas just happened to be at the studio at the time, fit into the costume, and agreed to do it. After a day at the Zoo he wanted to quit, but needed
the money. He stayed on as the San Diego Chicken, and the rest is history. Even though he has never been the official mascot of the San Diego Padres, the San Diego Chicken has been the kingpin of the mascot revolution in Major League Baseball. The Chicken once had its little chicks follow him around the basepaths between innings of a game. The Sporting News has named the San Diego Chicken as one of the top 100 most powerful people in sports of the 20th century.
Love them or not, you can’t help but adore, nor forget, mascots. Take the Phillie Phanatic. When Los Angeles Dodger manager Tommy Lasorda went toe to toe with the Phillie Phanatic, broadcaster Joe Garagiola was quick to quip that the Muppets were invading baseball. Baseball is meant to be entertainment, and fans of all ages have come to expect their hometown mascot to rally their local team. Once, the Phillie Phanatic uniform was misplaced, and it became a national story. It was found several days later, and peace was restored. Mascots, such as Mr. Met, have appeared in comments. But who cares if the costumes are hot and heavy, kids line up for pictures with their local mascot. If you bring the
kids to a Major League Baseball game, the adults are there with them.
How about some of the innovative names of mascots for some Major League Baseball teams: Southpaw (Chicago White Sox), Sluggerrr (Kansas City Royals), Pirate Parrot (Pittsburgh Pirates), Paws (Detroit Tigers), Firebird (St. Louis Cardinals), Gapper (Cincinnati Reds), Lou Seal (San Francisco Giants), Mariner Moose (Seattle Mariners), Stomper (Oakland Athletics), Ace (Toronto Blue Jays) Bernie Brewer (Milwaukee Brewers), and Slider (Cleveland Indians).
Jeff Figler is a professional certified appraiser. His latest book The Picker’s Pocket Guide to Baseball Memorabilia has been #1 on Amazon. He can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 877-4723087.
Three team mascots, the Phillie Phanatic, Mr. Met, and Slider have been inducted into the Mascot Hall of Fame. Many more are sure to follow. What can beat eating hot dogs and popcorn, and enjoying a mascot at a baseball game?
Sure, Major League Baseball has become a big business, but no one can ever question that mascots help preserve that wonderful thrill of being at the old ballyard and enjoying our National Pastime.

The Surprising Thing about Church
These 5 studies might surprise you: (1) Dr. James C. Patterson, Professor at LSU found that people who attend church weekly live 7.5 years longer than nonchurch attenders.
(2) Janet Washington’s study, sited in CNN.com found that regular church attenders are 56% more likely to develop an optimistic outlook and 27% less likely to become depressed. (3) Bradford Wilcox of the University of Virginia’s study
(5) Studies by both Stanford University and the University of Chicago found that church attenders have better sex lives.
What studies like these can’t uncover is why church attenders seem to have better lives than others. Could it be that church attendance helps cultivate better mental, physical, and spiritual lifestyles than other Sunday options? Or maybe, God just smiles more on church goers? We don’t know, and probably never will. But it seems to me like the case for church attendance is pretty convincing. If you want a longer, happier, better life, or just better sex, you might want to head to church this Sunday, and start making it a weekly habit.

Summer brings warm temps and scaly critters
As summertime brings warmer temperatures, fury and scaly creatures begin appearing in our yards and parks.
While April and May mark the start of rattlesnake season in San Diego County, reports have described increased snake sighting with warmer weather. As the reptiles come out of hibernation, it is not uncommon to spot them locally, though bites are rare. Most sightings are likely to happen between now and October.
Snakes are most likely venturing out in search of food and to soak up the sun. Park rangers advise to keep your distance and be good neighbors, as this is their home too. For tips on how you can safely enjoy your outdoor adventures along the 72 miles of trail and parks in San Marcos, visit www.san-marcos.net.
Escondido • Mayor Paul “Mac” Mcnamara Greetings Escondido!
There is no doubt that the highlight of the week was the wonderful 4th of July celebration at Grape Day park. It’s always well done and just a great event to witness. If you didn’t attend put it on your calendar for next year.
When I think about the Declaration of Independence, I look at it as more than a legal argument for why we needed to separate from England. I see it as a document that defines the American Character. There are two parts to it of note. One is the stated belief that man has inalienable rights, and the second is the statement that if you have the ability to right a wrong, you have the moral obligation to do so. It is a call to action that has defined who we are as a nation, and I think defines us in the world. Our history is replete with community calls to action. When I read it, I can’t help but feel great respect for the intellect and moral compass of our Founding Fathers and also blessed that I am an American.

stretches back for years, students who received scholarships from The Woman’s Club of Vista GFWC and staff representatives joined the Club for the annual Scholarships Luncheon in June. The Club awarded a total of $12,000 in scholarships to students at six Vista high schools in 2019. Members of the Club presented the scholarships at the schools. Introduced by member Linda Story, the adult representatives from the schools shared their students’ achievements, GPA’s and their community involvement. The students themselves were able to thank the Club members for their scholarship support and speak about their challenges, successes, and plans for the future. Some students shared their plans to attend 4-year universities like UCSD and UCLA or local community colleges; some are the first in their families to graduate from high school, and others overcame adversities to turn their lives around and shine with achievements. Scholarship winners from Vista High School were Samantha Patterson, Sophia Gonzalez, and Joanna Aguilar Hernandez.
Recipients from Mission Vista High School’s class of 2019 were Emily Van Vreeswyk, Elennah Hernandez, and Mason Houskeeper. Rancho Buena Vista High Counselor Colleen Williams, who is retiring this year, introduced scholarship winners from that school, Makena Leonard, Anthony Guzman, and Genevieve Lambert. Guajome Park Academy scholarship recipients Lauren Lacandazo Ventura, Sarah St. Holland, and Marcial De Santiago were introduced by Superintendent Kevin Humphries. Principal Phil Lutgen introduced Kailani Ramirez, the scholarship winner from North County Trade Tech. Maj. Gen. Raymond Murray High School graduate Julia Jensen was introduced by Counselor
Dana Templin. Linda Story thanked all recipients and adult representatives for attending this event and wished all of the 2019 recipients the best in their future endeavors.

Oceanside • Mayor Peter Weiss Green Oceanside Kitchen
The City of Oceanside recently opened the doors to its Green Oceanside Kitchen—a state-of-the-art food recovery and preservation facility at the El Corazon Senior Center, providing innovative solutions to food waste, hunger and environmental and culinary education in North San Diego County. The Kitchen is the result of a partnership between the City and O’side Kitchen Collaborative and includes a large commercial kitchen and an interactive demonstration kitchen for culinary arts training and education.
The Kitchen will recover agricultural surplus from local farms, growers and gleaning organizations, and use the kitchen to transform the produce into cuisine and preserved products, nutritious meals for the food insecure. Community workshops and cooking classes will also be provided to raise awareness about issues and educate participants on solutions to food waste. Hanks biopic ‘A Beautiful Day in The Neighborhood’ and Barden/Schnee Casting are seeking a young female, aged 11-14, with cerebral palsy, for the lead role of “Melody” in the major motion picture adaptation of the bestselling young-adult novel ‘Out of My Mind’, by Sharon M. Draper, to film this fall. Interested parents, teachers, children, or caregivers should contact email@example.com for instructions on how to submit. Don’t miss these upcoming opportunities! July Dog Training Classes and Warm Weather Training Tips – We love to celebrate when summer comes, and here are some safety tips and tricks for navigating summer festivities with your dog from our Community Training Coordinator, Juliette Nash. As much fun as holidays are for you, it’s not as much fun for your pup. Keep them in a secure, quiet room; put on some soothing music and exercise them earlier in the day so they’re more likely to rest. Leave them with high value enrichment items to play with. BBQ = great for you, not for your dog. If attending a cookout, precook a special treat that people can give to your dog. Some foods are unhealthy or even toxic for our pets. At summer events, the temptation to go off-leash and be carefree can be strong, but it’s always better to stay safe. Even normally well-behaved dogs can spook with loud sounds or if they catch the whiff of a fired-up grill. Also, leashes are the law in San Diego County. Ask before greeting – this tip applies all year long. Take time to think about what sort of greetings your dog is and isn’t comfortable with, and how they let you and others know when they’re interested or not. Come up with a way to let people know how to greet your dog and respect his/her boundaries. Contact our Behavior Helpline or attend one of our training classes: These classes are held at various times, and at different campuses.

Last week we discussed the difference between younger and older generations approach to today’s technology.
Business and home users of computer/communications technology (Internet, smart phones and PCs) over forty tend to take a “tops down” approach to technology meaning that they use newer technology to better accomplish tasks that they had been accustomed to doing in other ways. By contrast the younger generation grew up using new integrated technology to learn to do things using newer technology from the beginning. It’s the “bottom

This oneof-a-kind festival is sure to intrigue bugdevotees of all ages. The event features thousands of fascinating creepy-crawlies,
The “tops down” has worked well for the older generations and technology has made life better for them in countless ways, but it has a problem. One may come quite adept at adapting technology to accomplishing ones tasks without a fundamental understanding of the technology itself. By contrast the younger generation that grew up with today’s technology as it evolved developed a fundamental understanding of how it works. They fully understand the integration of information, graphics and communications through the Internet using a variety of devices and applications.
