ABUSIVE BABYSITTER EXPOSED BY FAMILY DOG.

It all happened less than 5 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 7-month-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

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.

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.

There was one other member of the Jordan family that was never consulted in the decision-making. This

So, Killian, the dog, was totally left

for a babysitter.

Or so they thought.

After all, that would be silly. Perhaps, even ridiculous.

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 dogresume 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-monthold 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

Give Us This Day Our Daily Chuckle This week, a compendium of wit, wisdom and neat stuff you can tell at parties. Enjoy! Farmer Math

A Missouri farmer passed away and left 17 mules to his three sons. The instructions left in the will said that the oldest boy was to get one-half, the second oldest one-third, and the youngest oneninth. The three sons, recognizing the difficulty of dividing 17 mules into these fractions, began to argue.

Their uncle heard about the argument, hitched up his mule and drove out to settle the matter. He added his mule to the 17, making 18. The oldest therefore got one-half, or nine, the second oldest got one-third, or six, and the youngest son got one-ninth, or two. Adding up 9, 6 and 2 equals 17. The uncle, having settled the argument, hitched up his mule and drove home. WIFE MISSING

The first thing a grieving husband should do.......CALL THE SHERIFF! Husband: My wife of 15 years is missing. She went shopping yesterday and

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 rough-housing, 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, physicallyabused, and terrified – all of which is unimaginable during an infant’s formative years, when human mental and psychological 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 has not come home! Sheriff: Height?

Husband: I'm not sure. A little over five-feet tall. Sheriff: Weight?

Husband: Don't know. Not slim, not really fat. Sheriff: Color of eyes

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 actually had to physically restrain our dog from going after her!”

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

Sheriff: “Take it easy sir, we'll find your truck!” Why Some Men have Dogs and Not Wives

Husband: Sort of brown I think. Never really noticed.

1. The later you are, the more excited your dogs are to see you.

Husband: Changes a couple times a year. Maybe dark brown now. I can’t remember.

3. Dogs like it if you leave a lot of things on the floor.

Sheriff: Color of hair?

Sheriff: What was she wearing ?

Husband: Could have been pants, or maybe a skirt or shorts. I don't know exactly. Sheriff: What kind of car did she go in? Husband: She went in my truck.

Sheriff: What kind of truck was it ?

Husband: A 2016 Brilliant Diesel Grey Pearlcoat Ram Limited 4X4 with 6.4 l Hemi V8 engine ordered with the Ram Box bar and fridge option, led lighting, backup and front camera, Moose hide leather heated and cooled seats, climate controlled air conditioning.

2. Dogs don't notice if you call them by another dog's name. 4. A dog's parents never visit.

5. Dogs agree that you have to raise your voice to get your point across.

6. You never have to wait for a dog; they're ready to go 24 hours a day. 7. Dogs find you amusing when you're drunk. 8. Dogs like to go hunting and fishing.

9. A dog will not wake you up at night to ask, "If I died, would you get another dog?" 10. If a dog has babies, you can put an ad in the paper and give them away.

11. A dog will let you put a studded collar on it without calling you a pervert.

12. If a dog smells another dog on you, they don't get mad. They just think it's interesting.

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.

It was wife, Hope Jordan, who suggested a most outlandish and wild 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.

13. Dogs like to ride in the back of a pickup truck. And last, but not least:

14. If a dog leaves, it won't take half of your stuff. To test this theory: Lock your wife and your dog in the garage for an hour.

Then open it and see who's happy to see you! The Little White Lie Cake

Alice Grayson was to bake a cake for the Baptist Church Ladies' Group in Tuscaloosa, but forgot to do it until the last minute. She remembered it the morning of the bake sale and after rummaging through cabinets, found an angel food cake mix & quickly made it while drying her hair, dressing, and helping her son pack for scout camp. When she took the cake from the oven, the center had dropped flat. And the cake was horribly disfigured and she exclaimed,"Oh dear, there is not time to bake another cake!" So, being inventive, she looked around the house for something to build up the center of the cake. She found it in the bathroom - a roll of toilet Paper.

She plunked it in and then covered it with icing. Not only did the finished product look beautiful, it looked perfect.

And, before she left the house to drop the cake by the church and head for work, Alice woke her daughter and gave her some money and specific

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! The babysitter’s screaming at the child could clearly be heard: “SHUT UP!! SHUT THE F*** UP!! 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 after-effects from his ordeal. Though he will be continually monitored.

Charleston City Police arrested 22year-old babysitter, Alexis Khan, whereupon she made a full confession, complete with terrifying details. The so-called perfect babysitter, the 22-year-old woman, Alexis Khan, pled guilty to assault and battery charges at the Charleston Circuit Court and sentenced 1 to 3 years in prison for abusing 7-month-old baby, Finn Jordan. Alexis Khan will remain on record in the child-abuse registry upon release, which prevents her from ever working with children again. Benjamin Jordan asked a most haunting question: “Who knows how many children she has abused

Gospel and Blues Coming to Center for the Arts, Escondido - Delve into the multicultural roots of American music with our Puttin’ Down Roots music series. This Americana music series will fill the Lyric Court with music every Friday in July! The Missy Anderson Duo will be on center stage in the Lyric Court with gospel and blues music on Friday, July 13th from 7pm-9pm. Missy Andersen and her accompanist/husband, Heine Andersen, perform as a duo which showcases the couple’s individual and combined talents. In the absence of other instruments, listeners find a greater appreciation for Missy’s gospel-tinged vocals and Heine’s blues and Americana inspired guitar work. Noted for his polyrhythmic acoustic style, Heine plays lead and rhythm as well as bass lines simultaneously. With eyes closed, a listener would swear there were at least three musicians present. Add in Missy’s expressive, deep soul vocal delivery plus humorous storytelling and it’s a perfect match of all things good. Doors for the event will open at 6:15pm. Although no

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.

Says Benjamin Jordan: “He is a very personable, loving dog, so for him to show aggression toward anyone is a sign that something was wrong. We hope other parents can learn from our lesson.”

RSVP is required and admission is free, RSVPs to this event will be given priority seating. Seating at bistro tables is also available for $12/seat or $40 for a table for 4.

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. Better to adopt from dog shelters rather than contributing to the animal-homelessness crisis by buying from a breeder or a pet story.” GUIDE DOG JUMPS IN FRONT OF BUS TO PROTECT BLIND OWNER.

There are no outstanding subjects and no arrests have been made. Police Department detectives are actively investigating the incident.

On arrival, officers contacted a 19year-old male resident who stated he was having a party. The resident stated several uninvited guests showed up to the party and entered his residence. The uninvited guests were reportedly told to leave. A short time later, the uninvited guests returned to the residence and attempted to force their way inside by kicking in the front door. The resident stated he armed himself with a handgun and fired several rounds at the subjects. Two of the subjects were struck by bullets and all of the uninvited guests fled the scene.

The two gunshot victims (both 18year-old males) were taken to separate local hospitals by their companions. With the assistance of the San Diego Sheriff’s Department, officers located the victims at the hospitals. The injuries are not consid-

der about the hospital. Don't you worry about me."

Wasn't all that long before they let me leave. An escort put me in a wheel chair and rolled me down to the front entrance. There was Friedrich, his snazzy new Hyundai, purring away, waiting for this ancient creature to enter and enjoy the ride home.

Man About Town

Evelyn and I absolutely love Friedrich Gomez.

Why?

Just one of many examples:

He was at my home at 6:45am last Friday to drive me to the VA Medical Center in La Jolla so that I might undergo lithotripsy, a medical procedure to remove a kidney stone.

I told him, "Friedrich, once they check me in, get away from here; go into La Jolla, have a nice breakfast at a fancy cafe, go to the beach, look at the pretty girls; I'll have them call you when I'm out of recovery and you can come pick me up and we'll head back home."

"Oh, no," he sez. "I love to read and I brought several books. I'll go down to the cafe and read - or wan-

One thing troubled me: when they were checking me in that morning, Friedrich was right by my side. The check-in guy was Filipino and Friedrich speaks some Tagalog, so they would banter back and forth a bit. Understand, Friedrich looks a bit different than most guys. As you can see, he has long, black hair, wears a totem in his left ear with two feathers, wears a tube top - he also wears short shorts and sandals. People often confuse him for a woman . . . he's aware of this it doesn't seem to bother him. But it bothered me.

Facebook Loves Friedrich, Too!

Gosh, Lyle, I have to admit, when I read all those beautiful Facebook comments about me from the general public, well, my eyes clouded up with tears! I'm not even on Facebook, so thank you for copying and forwarding the comments you received and sharing them with me! How could such a huge outpouring of love not put a lump in one's throat? It was totally unexpected and I truly felt humbled, beyond words. I feel I am not worthy of such anonymous love and praise, but, such kindness also allows me to see the good in this world of ours. These are my spiritual brothers and sisters, Lyle, and I clasp them all to my heart. God bless them all, each and everyone. /s/ Friedrich Gomez me a favor. Please explain to all the folks in Recovery that my ride home is a guy, not a gal. (I described his dress, personality, etc., and related the incident at the check-in desk and told them it upset me.) They assured me they would do this.

Well, it was about 4pm when my procedure was done and I was in recovery, getting ready to go home.

Bless his heart! He had bought me a can of apricot nectar, several peanut butter cups, several chocolate mints, several Snickers Bars. The nectar was amazingly good. So was the candy, though I should not have eaten it as I am a type II diabetic (that night my blood sugar went sky high!) . . . but, clearly, this man is one of the kindest, most sensitive, caring, thoughtful guys I've ever known.

Letters to the Editor

We had no further incidents.

It was 6pm when Friedrich, bless his heart, dropped me back at my home. That's a long day, above and beyond the call of duty. One more example of the kind of guy Friedrich is, and why Evelyn and I love him so much: This check-in guy looked at me and said, "and when you leave recovery she can drive you home and it's her decision as to which route to take, 52 or 56." I cringed.

I don't want anyone to hurt Friedrich's feelings. He says it doesn't bother him but I'm sure it does. Later, just before going into the Operating Room, they have what's called a "huddle." Two urologists, two anesthesiologists, and one nurse huddle together, confirm my name, last four numbers of my SS#, and my birthdate just to make sure I'm the right patient. Then they go over the procedure in detail. Everyone knows their job and agrees. Before the huddle broke I said, "hey, do

Because he is a Kumeyaay Indian, he receives a great deal of money every month; all members of the nation that owns the casino do. So Friedrich, who has written 104 cover stories for me, does not write for the money. He doesn't need it. Indeed, every writer's fee check he receives he gives to a close friend of his, a Purple Heart Vet. Even though he didn't need a job, he loves people so much that he went to work at Walmart as a cashier. He speaks fluent German so would often visit with customers who spoke German. Everyone, it seems, loved that friendly cashier at Walmart.

But, well . . . from time to time a little old lady would come to the cash register and be short $5 - or $10 - or $20. Friedrich would reach into his pocket

Four-Footed Heroes Cont. from Page 3

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 Smithtownbased Guide Dog Foundation, which places about 85 Guide Dogs per year with blind and legallyblind 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 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 8-year-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 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.

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, jumpingup at the bus trying to stop it.”

It seemed like any other normal day in Brewster, New York, just 60 miles north of Manhattan. A pleasant 73-degrees outside. It seemed like a perfect day.

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.

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.

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.

Unil it was too late.

Paul Schwartz, manager of Xtra Mart gas station at the intersection, ran to help out the best he could while police and paramedic firstresponders 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!”

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 voicecommand 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

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 seeingeye 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 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 lifesaving 8-year-old Figo. In a most

As I pen this article so close to the 4th of July I am reminded of an American icon born at about the same time.

On June 30th 1952 the first Chevy Corvette rolled off the line. Now 66 years later we hear distant rumblings that car ownership is in jeopardy. Names like Clutch, Flexdrive, Carma Car, Book, Canvas, Maven, Care, and On Demand are all companies that provide you a rotation plan for car SUBSCRIPTION where you pay a monthly fee, usually from $400.00 to $1,500.00 a month to drive different cars of your choice. There is no longer a need to worry about maintenance, depreciation, insurance or repair bills. In other words OWNERSHIP is dead. It’s an arrangement of from the assembly line to the junk yard. If you can’t make up your mind about a vehicle choice, you may be a subscription prospect. Back to real metal that gave you an adrenalin rush—I’m talking about an automobile with styling, comfort, performance, handling and a lot of room, plus being unique. This week’s mystery car was a leader after WWII in all of the above attributes. From the bottom up this car had unitized frame and body less weight, superior safety, and tons of room. You could squeeze four normal sized people across the front seat if you cuddled up. Getting in you actually stepped down into it rather than up and in like every other car. Under the hood was a fantastic inline six with duel carburetion called “Twin H Power”, which along with its low design handling was a winning combination in the hands of a great stock car driver by the name of Marshall Teague. It was labeled “Fabulous” by company that manufactured it. This fabulous car is one of my all- time personal favorites.

Answer: 1950’s Hudson Hornet

Working for the District

This session my legislative package deals with public safety, healthcare, government efficiency and rebuilding after the recent fires. Only some are highlighted here.

Public safety bills include AB 2720, reducing recidivism rates by providing more services for youth on parole from state prison to help them successfully re-enter society. AB 1983 improves school safety by requiring school districts and local law enforcement to collaborate on safety threat assessments of school facilities and emergency practices, along with AB 3105 increasing penalties for fentanyl possession, a powerful synthetic opioid.

Two of my bills deal with California’s recent fire disasters. AB 1943 updates state laws that can block conventional home financing in common interest developments, like the manufactured homes that burned in the Lilac Fire, for those seeking to rebuild and for new home buyers, along with ACA 24 which allows residents relocating after natural disasters to transfer base-year tax values (Prop 13) to replacement homes anywhere in California. Healthcare bills include AB 2893 updating the California Health

Benefit Review Program (CHBRP) for improved healthcare outcomes and treatments upfront, resulting in fewer costly hospitalizations and doctor visits over the long-term. AB 2342 ensures that women considered high-risk for breast or ovarian cancer receive appropriate early genetic counseling and testing. And AB1963 incentivizes providers to become certified to treat opioid and substance abuse disorders. Currently only 2% of providers are certified in our state. Modernizing state government is the goal of AB 2087, resulting in greater transparency, efficiency, cost savings and customer service at all state agencies, including the DMV, Caltrans and even the Legislature! The 2017-2018 legislative session ends August 31st and I’m hoping that my legislation along with many other bi-partisan bills that will benefit all Californians make it to the Governor’s desk.

Minority Floor Leader Marie Waldron, REscondido, 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.

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 stillinjured 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 life-threatening 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 other.

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).

Finally, management at Walmart called him in: "Friedrich," they said, "you simply cannot do this. You can't mingle your personal funds, no matter how well intentioned, with company money and/or sales. We simply cannot allow it. It's not good business practice!"

"Well," sez Freidrich, "you just have to let me go then because I answer to a higher power and if I can help someone I'm gonna do it."

So, reluctantly, Walmart had to let him go.

pipe running the length of the train (with flexible connections) which both refilled the reservoirs and controlled the brakes, allowing the engineer to apply and release the brakes simultaneously on all cars.

The Westinghouse Air Brake Company (WABCO), which continues to this day, was subsequently organized to manufacture and sell Westinghouse's invention. It was in time nearly universally adopted by railways. Today, trains use brakes in various forms based on Westinghouse’s design. The same conceptual design of fail-safe air brake is also found on heavy trucks.

The Gentle Giant of American Industry

American Federation of Labor founder Samuel Gompers once said: “If all business leaders and moguls treated their employees as well as George Westinghouse, there’d be no need for any labor unions.”

George Westinghouse Jr., born Oct. 6, 1846, in Central Bridge, N.Y., was an American entrepreneur and engineer based in Pittsburgh, PA. He invented the railway air brake and was a pioneer of the electrical industry, going up against Thomas Edison to develop “Alternating Current (AC) distribution, which is the standard all over the world.

Westinghouse pursued many improvements in railway signals (which then used oil lamps). In 1881 he founded the Union Switch and Signal Company to manufacture his signaling and switching inventions. He later invented the first automotive shock absorber.

He became interested in the new field of electrical power distribution in the early 1880s. In 1885, Westinghouse became aware of the AC system developed by Nicola Tesla. Edison and Westinghouse were locked into a “Current War” in the late 1880s. The acquisition of Tesla’s patent for a feasible AC motor gave Westinghouse a key ingredient for his AC distribution system.

America discovered the value of Westinghouse’s AC current when he lit the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago. Westinghouse demonstrated the safety, reliability, and efficiency of a fully integrated alternating current system to the American public by electrifying the entire fair. Westinghouse's demonstration that they could build a complete AC system at the World Fair was instrumental in him getting the contract for building a twophase AC generating system, the Adams Power Plant, at Niagara Falls in 1895. At the same time, a contract to build the three-phase AC distribution system the project needed was awarded to General Electric, which by then had switched from DC to the safer AC distribution. These power plants provided electricity to most of the eastern U.S.

For more than a century, beginning in 1869, the name “Westinghouse” has been on the labels of everything from industrial machinery to home appliances. Because of Westinghouse’s ingenuity, his products were reliable and trusted. For all of the 20th century well into the 21st century we’ve heard: “You Can Be Sure If It’s Westinghouse.” At the age of 15, Westinghouse enlisted in the New York National Guard during the Civil War. In 1864, he became an engineering officer in the U.S. Navy.

Westinghouse was 19 years old when he created his first invention, the rotary steam engine. He also devised the Westinghouse Farm Engine. At age 21 he invented a "car replacer," a device to guide derailed railroad cars back onto the tracks, and a reversible frog, a device used with a railroad switch to guide trains onto one of two tracks.

At about this time, he witnessed a train wreck where two engineers saw one another, but were unable to stop their trains in time using the existing brakes. Brakemen had to run from car to car, on catwalks atop the cars, applying the brakes manually on each car. In 1868, at age 22, Westinghouse invented a railroad braking system using compressed air. The Westinghouse system used a compressor on the locomotive, a reservoir and a special valve on each car, and a single

Westinghouse remained productive and inventive almost all his life. Like Edison, he had a practical and experimental streak. At one time, Westinghouse began to work on a heatpump design that could provide heating and cooling and believed he might be able to extract enough power in the process for the system to run itself. Today, heat-pump units can be found in thousands of homes across America. Noted for his fair treatment, Westinghouse was the first to give his workers a five-and-a half day work week.

Westinghouse died on March 12, 1914, at age 67. He was buried in Arlington National Cemetery, along with his wife Marguerite, who survived him by only three months. George Westinghouse was one of world’s greatest industrialist who was known to be a gentle giant by his workers who knew and worked with him. The brand name “Westinghouse” continues to this day.

Samir and Saar

Inspired by the experience, the cousins participated in Students of the Year, LLS’s exciting leadership development and philanthropy program that motivates high school students to make a difference through a fierce, seven week fundraising competition. “We know firsthand how important cutting-edge research and treatments are in the fight against cancer,” says Samir. The cousins’ passion took flight through a dynamic fundraising campaign, including a special kite festival in their close-knit community. “Flying a kite is a symbol of having high aspirations and elevated vision,” says Saar. “We believe in our hopes and aspirations to find a cure for all blood cancers.” Samir and Saar raised the most funds across the country, earning the winning title, “National Students of the Year,” and breaking records along the way. This year, more than 600 high school students redefined what it means to be philanthropic in today’s youth culture, raising significant funds for LLS’s cuttingedge cancer research and patient services. Through programs like Students of the Year,

for a dynamic week of summer fun is a natural extension.

Pastor Hal Seed New Song Community Church, Oceanside

Why So Many Churches Are Hosting Children’s Camps This Summer

No doubt you’ve seen a lot of signs around town for “Vacation Bible School” haven’t you? Why do so many churches put these on? In a word, to help families.

Throughout history, Christian churches have done their best to meet practical needs in their communities. Churches throughout North County serve and teach children every weekend, so we’ve already developed teams of volunteers who know how to love, help, and teach children. Concentrating that manpower

Two Simple Reasons: One reason we hold Bible camps is to help working families. With both mom and dad at work these days, Vacation Bible Schools are able to give some uplifting relief, usually at little cost, to parents looking for positive places for their kids to hang out while school is out. A second reason churches hold Bible camps is because we want to fulfill our mission. Jesus asked his followers to share his message of hope with every man, woman, boy and girl on the planet. Vacation Bible Schools help children in our neighborhoods understand that there is a God who made them, and loves them, and has wonderful plans for their lives.

At New Song, we call our VBS, “Kids Camp,” because we want kids to have an adventure-filled week, learning sports skills and craft skills and about the needs of children in other parts of the world, as well as about God’s love for them. If you’ve got children or grandchildren, I hope you’ll take advantage of someone’s Bible camp this summer. We’re here for you!

San Marcos • Mayor Jim Desmond Leash Law and pest waste reminder

When you are out and about this summer enjoying the many parks and other outdoor activities San Marcos has to offer, remember that dog owners must keep their animal(s) under control at all times.

San Marcos is home to three dog parks that designate a safe area for your dog to roam off leash. Leashes must b used when walking dogs on trails, in parks, or other public spaces. Safety is the City’s primary concern and dogs that run free in parks and

on trails may encounter snakes, opossums, mountain lions or poison oak. Keeping your dog on a leash can also prevent disturbance of wildlife habitat and limit personal liability.

San Marcos also reminds residents to clean up all pet waste. Put dog waste in plastic bags and discard in proper receptacles. Ultimately, keeping your four-legged family member on-leash is the law and owners can be cited and/or fined for compliance failure. For more information, visit www.sanmarcos.net or check out www.escondidohumanesociety.org

instructions to be at the bake sale the moment it opened at 9:30 and to buy the cake and bring it home. When the daughter arrived at the sale, she found the attractive, perfect cake had already been sold. Amanda grabbed her cell phone and called her mom. Alice was horrified. She was beside herself! Everyone would know! What would they think? She would be ostracized, talked about, ridiculed!

All night, Alice lay awake in bed thinking about people pointing fingers at her. And talking about her behind her back.

The next day, Alice promised herself she would try not to think about the cake, and would attend the fancy luncheon/bridal shower at the home of a fellow church member and try to have a good time. She did not want to attend because the hostess was a snob who more than once had looked down her nose at the fact that Alice was a single parent and not from the founding families of Tuscaloosa, but having already RSVP'd, she couldn't think of an excuse to stay home. The meal was elegant, the company was definitely upper crust old south and to Alice's horror, the cake in question was presented for dessert! Alice felt the blood drain from her body when she saw the cake!

She started out of her chair to tell the hostess all about it, but before she could get to her feet, the Mayor's wife said, "what a beautiful cake!" Alice, still stunned, sat back in her chair when she heard the hostess (who was a prominent church member) say,

"THANK YOU, I BAKED IT MYSELF" Alice smiled and thought to herself, "GOD IS GOOD!"

A man boarded an airplane and took his seat. As he settled in, he glanced up and saw the most beautiful woman boarding the plane. He soon realized she was heading straight towards his seat. As fate would have it, she took the seat right beside his. Eager to strike up a conversation, he blurted out, "Business trip or pleasure?"

She turned, smiled and said, "Business. I'm going to the Annual Nymphomaniacs of America Convention in Boston." He swallowed hard.

Here was the most gorgeous woman he had ever seen sitting next to him, and she was going to a meeting of nymphomaniacs. Struggling to maintain his composure, he calmly asked, "What's your business role at this convention?"

"Lecturer," she responded. "I use information that I have learned from my personal experiences to debunk some of the popular myths about sexuality."

"Really?" he said. "And what kind of myths are there?"

"Well, she explained, "One popular myth is that African-American men are the most well-endowed of all men, when in fact it is the Native American Indian who is most likely to possess that trait." "Another popular myth is that Frenchmen are the best lovers, when actually it is men of Jewish descent who are the best." "I have also discovered that the lover with absolutely the best stamina is the Southern Redneck."

Suddenly the woman became a little uncomfortable and blushed. "I'm sorry," she said, "I shouldn't really be discussing all of this with you. I don't even know your name..."

SENIOR DRESS CODE

Many of us 'Old Folks' (over 50) are quite confused today about how we should present ourselves. Feeling 'young', we try to conform to current fashions and present a youthful image. Contrary to what you may have seen on the streets, the following combinations DO NOT go together and should be avoided: 1. A nose ring and bifocals

2.. Spiked hair and bald spots

3. A pierced tongue and dentures 4. Miniskirts and support hose

Unbelievable

Well it took nearly twenty years, but old age and complacency finally caught up with lyle e davis, editor and publisher of The Paper. The old coot finally made a mistake.

He left the last nine words out of our column and it completely reversed the meaning of our message. We had proposed several alternatives to the tyranny of Microsoft’s destructive upgrade mania on Windows 10. The first was to revert to Windows 7 and turn off the auto-update utility, the second was to dump Microsoft entirely

At some point you have to give up the 'DAISY DUKE' shorts ALABAMA FOOTBALL

Bubba went to Alabama on a football scholarship. He was a good running back, but a poor student.

At graduation day, Bubba didn't have enough credits. But he was a great football star and the students held a rally and demanded the dean give him a diploma anyway. They were so insistent that the dean agreed if Bubba could answer one question correctly he would give him a diploma. The one question test was held in the auditorium and the students packed the place. It was standing room only.

The dean was on the stage and told Bubba to come up. The dean had the diploma in his hand and said,"Bubba, if you can answer this question correctly I'll give you your diploma."

and buy a Chrome book. The column should have concluded as follows: “The last two we call the nuclear options and are equally unpleasant, Apple and suicide. Hard to choose between those two.” Instead Mr. Davis left out the last nine words making it appear that Windows 7 and Chrome books were the “equally unpleasant” alternatives to Windows 10. Not at all. The unpleasant alternatives were of course “Apple and Suicide. “ Mr. Davis complained that it was our fault for making the column so long but we think otherwise. Mr. Davis has recently been heard extolling the benefits of cannabis oil. Could this have been more than a coincidence?

Diego North County, they’re Republicans.

Bubba said he was ready and the dean asked him the question. "Bubba," he said, "How much is three times seven?"

"To help save the economy, the Government will announce next month that the Immigration Department will start deporting seniors (instead of illegals) in order to lower Social Security and Medicare costs".

For over twenty years we have regularly taken Microsoft to task in our column for completely disregarding the welfare of Windows users in the relentless, if clumsy, pursuit of their corporate agenda. Rumor has it that at a Microsoft’s Southern California sales meeting held at the Auberge in Del Mar a few years back, one sales rep complained bitterly to Bill Gates about our Anti-Microsoft columns in The Paper. “It makes people ask embarrassing questions,” he whined. Gates said “what do you want me to do about it?” The Manager said “can’t you throw them some advertising dollars at the publisher to shut the guy up?” Gates allegedly patted the manager’s hand and said “Don’t worry about it, they’re not our kind of people anyway, it’s San

Bubba looked up at the ceiling and then down at his shoes, just pondering the question. The students began chanting, "Graduate him anyway! Graduate him anyway!" Then Bubba held up his hand and the auditorium became silent. Bubba said, "I think I know the answer. Three times seven is twenty-one."

A hush fell over the auditorium and the Alabama students began another chant."Give him another chance! Give him another chance!" •••• Um, well, those are certainly nice, but I asked if I could see your tweets. •••• What in the hell are clams so happy about? •••• FACT: Norwegian infants are called "Newbjorns." •••• A big old family-sized heifer with hairy arms came up behind me, and slapped me smartly on the butt. She said, "Hey sexy, how about giving me your number!”

We attempt to stock a complete range of desktop and notebooks for all applications mostly in the $150 to $500 range. Check out our website (thecomputerfactory.net) for the inventory and prices. Nearly all of our refurbs are available with either Win10 or Win7.
