The Gunned-Down Gunfighter By Sam Lowe
One recent evening, as I watched an old Western movie on one of those channels that also advertises quick medical fixes for everything from scabies to erectile dysfunction, I painfully recalled the day I let my cowboy heroes down. It was several years ago, back when my hands were lightning fast, my gaze was steady and my eyes were steely blue. But little did I know, as I drove toward the showdown at Reata Pass, that the day would result in another entry in my personal log of “Great Unfairnesses.” This one involved a quick draw shootout against a bunch of amateurs. The Great Unfairness? I didn't win.
The importance of that declaration is that it undermines every adage, every rule and every precept ever coined about fairness, hard work and the good guys winning. The list includes such old familiars as “Practice Makes Perfect,” “As Ye Sow So Shall Ye Reap,” the eternal “All Good Things Come to He Who is Willing to Work Overtime For Brownie Points but No Extra Pay” and all those other goody-goody crocheted sayings that hang on kitchen walls. None is true. If they were, I would not have been seated dejectedly there in my office, pounding out a description of the incident on an IBM Selectric. Instead, I would be relaxing at home, watching an oscillating spotlight play off the intricate engraving etched into the “Fastest Gun at Reata Pass” trophy while hundreds of adoring fans and autograph seekers milled around me, pleading for just one more demonstration of my skill with a six shooter. But then, as now, I sat among shattered dreams, thinking of wasted years. How quick I was, back then. My guns, hand-carved from carefully selected box elder tree branches, slipped effortlessly from my holsters, handmade from the finest burlap, as I gunned down varmints, black-hatted ne'er-do-wells, bounders, cads, rustlers and even an occasional Nazi spy masquerading as an The Paper - 760.747.7119

old cowhand from the Rio Grande. Back then, I knew not fear.
Of course, there were occasions in which an unprincipled horse thief or stage robber would get off a lucky shot and I'd be winged, but it was always the perpetrator's final act as my guns unerringly spit lead and ended his miserable existence. After sending another coward to his just rewards, I'd clench my teeth while tying a bandana across the wound, neither wincing nor surrendering to unbearable pain. I thought of those hours dedicated to developing my quick draw abilities while driving to the site at Reata Pass, an Old West saloon cleverly disguised as a restaurant. Once there, I sized up the opposition. There were eight of us, and I immediately appointed myself the favorite because the other seven looked like they'd faint over the acquisition of a blood blister.
With the extreme nonchalance that comes with self-assurance, I pulled a rolled-up beef jerky from my vest pocket, stuck it in my mouth, struck a wooden match across the seat of my blue jeans, lit the jerky, snuffed out the match barehanded and turned a steely gaze at my quivering foes. A faint smile played upon my lips. T The words to Conway Twitty's “Easy Pickin's” drifted through my head.
It was so obvious that none of them had ever defended a barn against ten thousand screaming savages, the way I had. Their attire gave them away. Not one was wearing a ten-gallon hat; one was clad in a Hawaiian shirt that wasn't even invented back when I was personally saving the Old West. I pushed my hat forward, stuck my thumbs into my belt loops, leaned up against a hitchin' post and felt mighty good. And, although I pretended not to hear them, the whispers and low murmurs spread through the gathering crowd of anxious spectators. They were factual, thus hard to ignore.
“...called him Kid Dakota...” “...hear tell he rode in from up Kensal way...” “...saw him go up against the whole Nogosek gang once...” “...faster'n greased lightnin'... “...wears his guns like he was born with 'em...”
“...doesn't slouch or chew...” Stuff like that.
A young woman walked by with her small son in tow. I raised my Stetson to mid-forehead and gently uttered, “Ma'am.” Her eyes sparkled with admiration and the little boy's jaw dropped as he listened carefully while his mother explained the virtues of eating all his vegetables and studying hard so he might end up like me. Then they called us out into the street. It was time for the showdown. We took our places. I crouched low, balanced myself on the tips of my scuffed-up cowboy boots, wiped the sweat from my palms on the faded denim of my cowboy jeans, pulled the brim of my cowboy hat low, unsnapped the wrist buttons of my cowboy shirt and twisted my cow-
boy bandana so it wouldn't flap in my face, checked the cowboy sixshooters the sponsors loaned us, placed my left hand in front of my cowboy outfit in case there was a need for quick fanning while resting my right hand lightly on the butt of my Colt .45, and grimaced my cowboy grimace. All in one motion.
With temples at full throb and hearts pumping at full throttle, we faced each other and when the signal was given, we drew and fired. The acrid smell of gunpowder seared our nostrils and the white puffs of smoke obscured our vision but we gallantly stood and blasted away while the judges determined who hit whom. It was strictly subjective since we were using blanks and none of us probably could have hit anything anyway.

Finally, there was only one cometitor left standing. And it wasn't me, the only seasoned gunfighter present. So this is where Unfairness enters.
The winner was Terry Walker, a radio disc jockey. He was wearing tennis shoes and shorts. And a golf cap. And sunglasses and a polyester T-shirt.
The author, Sam Lowe, is a free lance writer, has served as a reporter, columnist, editor and publisher during his distinguished career. We are pleased to have him as one of our treasured writers at The Paper.
And he won. Sorry Roy.
Sorry Duke and Tim and Durango and Cisco and Wild Bill. I let you all down. Even worse, my image of the Old West has been permanently altered because, obviously, the good guys don't always win.
I donated my cowboy outfit to Goodwill shortly thereafter. If I couldn't outdraw a disc jockey, why bother?

My husband thinks of color the way he thinks of hot sauce—you can never have too much.
I saw hints of this even before we were married. At the time, he owned a 1964 Chevrolet Impala convertible—one of those over-sized houseboats that navigated the highways before gas shortages and inflated fuel prices. The car was baby blue, with six tail lights. Not satisfied with that, he bought some red plastic, heated it on my mother's gas stove (stinking up her house in the process) and molded one huge, blazing-red tail light that went all the way across the back from fender to fender. It was a warning of things to come; a warning I ignored. tion by wearing a condominium (That would work)

Q. What is a turbine? A.. Something an Arab or Shreik wears on his head. •••• Just before I was deployed to Iraq, I sat my eight-year-old son down and broke the news to him. “I’m going to be away for a long time,” I told him. “I’m going to Iraq.”
“Why?” he asked. “Don't you know there’s a war going on over there?” •••• Paul Newman founded the Hole in the Wall Gang Camp for children stricken with cancer, AIDS, and blood diseases. One afternoon, he and his wife, Joanne Woodward, stopped by to have lunch with the
After we were married, he bought a teal-colored Pontiac Sprint. It came with four-on-the-floor and a white racing stripe sedately placed along the bottom of the door. When the baby-moon hubcaps he’d installed started to rust, he spray-painted them green. I'm not talking soft moss green, I'm talking dazzling, fluorescent lime green—the color of paint you put on garden tools to keep them from getting lost.
"I thought it needed something,” he said proudly. “Makes it look different, doesn't it? Nobody else has a car like this!" Not likely, I was sure.
It seems everyone along his route to work knew that Pontiac, too. Even the salesman at a used car

Filled with enthusiasm, the next day he went to a body shop and brought home one of their color swatch books. He pointed out certain ones, marked his favorites, and asked everyone what they thought.

We get to meet a lot of interesting and talented people in our business. One of the more impressive folks we’ve met is Mo Sadooghi, new owner of 9th Avenue Auto Service at 336 W. 9th Avenue in Escondido. I’ve done business with a lot of great mechanics in my lifetime. There are non better than Mo Sadooghi. And I doubt there are many that are more dedicated. It’s not uncommon for Mo, his wife, Ally, and their “baby,” Leo, to finally get home at 10pm after a long day’s work at the garage. When you visit 9th Avenue Auto you’ll be amazed and get yourself
Carlsbad City Council member facing recall resigns, Effective Immediately
“I have chosen to attend a university outside the county of San Diego,” Schumacher said in response to emailed questions about her decision. “It’s an opportunity I simply cannot refuse. Unfortunately, this means that I am no longer able to continue my role as council member.”
Schumacher declined to answer questions about the recall or about her continuing conflicts with a few vocal residents and conservative elected officials. One of the reasons for the recall effort was Schumacher’s decision to file restraining orders against three Carlsbad residents, one of whom has since moved away, who frequently criticize her council actions in social media and at public meetings. A judge dismissed her complaints and ordered her to pay court costs.

If it has an engine, if it has wheels, and if it’s designed to operate on our roads and highways, Mo and his staff will know how to fix it and keep it running smoothly. And he warranties his work!

Thank you, from all of us, for giving us a 4th of July cover story that was truly different, fresh, and a departure from the mundane media everywhere which serves up "left overs" from every previous July 4th commentaries which are fine, but overdone, overly abundant, and omnipresent.

Great food, great service, and plush, comfortable booths. Ideal for either a romantic meal or a business meeting. It all seemed to work at the Fireside.
I also remember thinking, “if I were a younger man I’d put together some investors and build a fine steakhouse in Escondido. Escondido really needs a fine steakhouse . . upscale dining with top of the line steaks.”
Well, I haven’t gotten any younger but it looks like Escondido is gonna get it’s upscale steak house.
Jeannette McBrearty, the moving force behind the new concept tells The Paper, “we’ve maintained the upscale, intimate setting of the restaurant, added new tableware, new silverware, new lighting, an almost ‘sultry’ look . . all the things you expectd with fine dining.” She’s also added something new; a Cigar Lounge in back, totally separated from the restaurant and comfortably accommodating up to 20 patrons as they enjoy fine cigars.
Meanwhile, the all new Hunsaker’s Restaurant patrons will enjoy top steaks and high end whiskey. A time of pleasure!

People at his office nicknamed it the "bumble bee." My neighbor said the poor thing looked like it had gotten into a fight with a street line-painting machine—and lost. I was embarrassed to ride in it. My husband loved it.
He didn't even care when a big guy in a jacked-up pickup pulled alongside and proclaimed loudly through an open window, “That’s the ugliest car I’ve ever seen.”
My husband turned to me. "It's not ugly, it's different," he said, extremely satisfied with his choice of color. "What does that guy know?" •••• When we retired and moved to Florida, he bought another convertible, a little two-seater Mercury Capri with headlights that raised and lowered like eyelids.

His name is Bud (he belonged to a Budweiser distributor in a past life), and I sometimes wonder what Henry Ford would think if he stumbled across this descendant of his early “any color as long as it is black” automobiles. I get the feeling that Bud is ready to move on, though, and I hesitate to imagine who—or what—will take his place in our garage…or what color the new addition will be.

"Let's just go look at the shop where they make truck signs," he said. "I found out they also make decals. We don't have to buy anything if we go… Maybe they can put on something we can take off later," he added, remembering the difficulty we’d had selling the Mustang with its brilliant yellow stripe. We went to the sign shop. He examined the colors. I ignored them. We discussed. We argued. Finally, we compromised (or did I give in?).
So we ended up with a little Mercury Capri dwarfed by a wide, brightgreen stripe running from the front bumper, up over the hood, and back down the trunk.

Tired of constantly being broke and stuck in an unhappy marriage, a young husband decided to solve both problems by taking out a large insurance policy on his wife, with himself as the beneficiary, and then arranging to have her killed.
A 'friend of a friend' put him in touch with a nefarious dark-side underworld figure who went by the name of 'Artie.'
Artie then explained to the husband that his going price for snuffing out a spouse was $5,000. The husband said he was willing to pay that amount, but that he wouldn't have any cash on hand until he could collect his wife's insurance money.
Artie insisted on being paid at least something up front, so the man opened his wallet, displaying the single dollar bill that rested inside. Artie sighed, rolled his eyes, and reluctantly agreed to accept the dollar as down payment for the dirty deed. A few days later, Artie followed the man's wife to the local Super Wal-Mart store. There, he surprised her in the produce department and proceeded to strangle her with his gloved hands and as the poor unsuspecting woman drew her last breath and slumped to the floor the manager of the produce department stumbled unexpectedly onto the murder scene. Unwilling to leave any living witnesses behind, ol' Artie had no choice but to strangle the produce manager as well.
However, unknown to Artie, the entire proceedings were captured by the hidden security cameras and observed by the store's security guard, who immediately called the police. Artie was caught and arrested before he could even leave the store. Under intense questioning at the police station, Artie revealed the whole sordid plot, including his unusual financial arrangements with the hapless husband, who was also quickly arrested. The next day in the newspaper, the headline declared ... (You're going to hate me for this ...)

He Speaks German, Fluently
Dear Mr. Lyle E. Davis, Owner/Publisher of The Paper:
Regarding the question in your Letters to the Editor column, Friedrich Gomez spoke both English and German at Cruisin' Grand with some of his fans! We are sooo in love with him and his cover stories!
I just want you to know Mr. Davis just how important you are to all of my generation because some people take us for granted and yet we comprise much of the political votes and merchandising power in America!
Mr. Davis, can you run a (clear color) photo of yourself in your "Man About Town" column so all of my university friends can see you? We love the cartoon caricatures of you both in "Letters to the Editor" and "Man About Town" but we're so very curious as to what you really look like! And don't be bashful, 'cause you're wonderful & we are your fanbase!
guage? We heard him chatting to one particular couple and it sure wasn't English or Spanish?" Well, I wasn't there but my cousin was, and she also overheard him. Friedrich was chatting in fluent German. And when it came her turn, she also spoke German with him! We often heard him speak German when he worked as a Walmart cashier in San Marcos with the many Germanic residents here in North County. So, mystery solved!
But I tell ya one thing: such newspaper "cliff-hangers" and suspense, keeps your readership "glued" because curiosity is just part of human nature (or as my mother might say: "Nosey!"). True Fans of The Paper & Yes, We Support Your Advertisers!
Maria Elena Contreras-Hauser family, Escondido/San Marcos. Doesn’t Like Polish Jokes
I brought home your paper for the first time this week (although I believe it's also the paper I see when I visit the VA.) Friedrich Gomez' article about Mark Twain caught my eye, and did not disappoint. Thank you for publishing it.
That said, I was genuinely appalled by the Polish "joke" on page 2. Disgusting. How is it that no one on your editorial staff caught that? Betsy Denhart San Diego County
Editor’s Note: Seeing as how it was the editor and publisher who posted the (very funny) joke about the Polish gentleman trying to buy sausage at Home Depot it wasn’t too hard to get by the editorial staff.

The picture below is of Kimberly Hastings, North Coast San Diego.
Now, had it been a joke about Norwegians, you can bet I would have put my foot down. Though Davis is a Welsh name I am about 90% Scandinavian and, of that, about 80% Norwegian, the rest Danish. When I read or hear about jokes dealing with Ole and Reghnild or Yimmy Yonsen I just hold my breath till I turn blue and stomp my foot very hard. Sometimes I even spit up my lutefisk.
I hope Ms. Denhart does not read this issue because this week’s Chuckles features a lengthy series of Jewish Haiku. (Written and submitted by those of the Jewish tradition) All of which, to us, are quite funny. But Ms. Denhart would probably not enjoy them. Lyle, we love ya! But you left countless readers out here in deep suspense, LOL, when you didn't answer Patrick Flannigan's query in his "Letter to the Editor" (July 8) regarding the different groups of people greeting your wonderful writer (Friedrich Gomez) at Cruisin' Grand (June 25). Mr. Flannigan asked: "Lyle, does Friedrich speak a foreign lan-

CA Homicides on the Rise
According to a report by the FBI, 2020 was the deadliest year in California since 2007, with homicides increasing by 31%. Public safety should be our priority, but we’ve been moving in the wrong direction.
In California, 28% of homicides last year were gang-related, seven percent were the result of domestic violence. Minority populations suffered the most as Hispanics accounted for 45% of homicide victims, and African Americans, 31%. The homicide rate in 2019 was the lowest since 1966, making last year’s spike all the more significant. On the other hand, property crimes dipped, possibly because more people were home.
This region wasn’t immune to the rising violent tide. Murders in San Diego County increased by nearly 29%, and aggravated assaults increased by more than 600 cases. Escondido, Oceanside, Carlsbad and San Diego were among cities that saw increases in violent crime. The reasons are complex, and debatable. Job loss and the mental stress caused by shutdowns and stay-at-home orders were likely big contributing factors. Mass de-incarceration and decriminalization of many crimes previously considered felonies had to have an effect, and efforts to defund the
police, or decrease their numbers, certainly weren’t helpful.
We need to ensure the police and our entire criminal justice system have the resources and training necessary for public safety. We also must get smarter about dealing with underlying causes of crime, including adverse childhood experiences (ACEs), traumas, drug abuse and addiction. My bill, AB 653, creates a MedicationAssisted Treatment grant program so that incarcerated persons both on parole from state prison or currently in county jail receive the counseling and treatment needed to break the cycle of drug abuse, leading to less crime. AB 653 passed the Assembly unanimously, and is now pending in the Senate.
This rising tide of violence must be reversed. Public safety is government’s primary responsibility! 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.
5th District Supervisor
Help For Domestic Violence Victims
A lot has happened during my first three years on the Board of Supervisors, but there is nothing that I’m prouder to be a part of than the Family Justice Center, coming to San Marcos. Over the last year, I’ve worked with District Attorney Summer Stephan to bring this unique and life-saving center to North County.
The Family Justice Center is safe haven for those suffering from domestic violence, sexual assault, and sex trafficking. Victims and their children can come to the center anytime and be provided therapists, nurses, attorneys, prosecutors, advocates, immigration attorneys, police, and other social service providers, free of charge. While the center is currently being constructed, it’s set to open in January 2022. Many victims of domestic violence feel they don’t have anywhere to turn and continue to suffer from violence. The Family Justice Center will end the cycle and empower them to break free of their abusers, while becoming thriving members of society, again. I cannot wait for this center to be open and will keep you updated with its progression. In
the meantime, if you are suffering from domestic violence or know someone who is, call the San Diego Hotline (888) 385-4657. The devastating reality is over 10 million Americans suffer from domestic violence a year; we must do all we can to help those victims. The Family Justice Center will save lives.

PROBLEM SOLVED BY CHRISTOPHER ELLIOTT
Q: My family recently had pictures taken of our toddler granddaughter at a JC Penney studio. We paid for our photos, and an associate told us that they would be ready in two weeks.
That was four months ago. Since then, we have not received our photos or any information regarding our service. I understand that the pandemic would cause some problems. But the lack of service we have received is unsatisfactory. We have attempted to call the store and JC Penney 800 numbers numerous times throughout the past four months without success. Our JC Penney store has been opened up for a while now, and we still have not received the pictures. My wife and I have stopped inside the store several times and have found the studio still closed, and more importantly, no one in the JC Penney store can provide answers.
It is time to make things right. Undoubtedly, the pictures are probably sitting around at this property. Can you help us get our photos? -Troy Nicholas, Knoxville, Tenn. A: I'm getting a little tired of people invoking the pandemic as an excuse for slow service -- or no service.
You shouldn't have to wait until your grandchild is grown up to get those photos. They're important memories that JC Penney is keeping. The lengthy delay is unacceptable.
How long should it take to get your photos from JC Penney? According to its website, the typical wait time is two to three weeks. Some specialty products may take longer. By the time you contacted me, it had been more than four months. I see you've gone through all the proper steps to resolving this problem. First, you contacted JC Penney at the local level. You also visited the store.
Maybe an appeal would do the trick? I supplied you with the names, numbers and email addresses of the <a href="https://www.elliott.org/company-contacts/j-c-penney/">JC Penney customer service executives</a>. They didn't respond, unfortunately.
You had two options at this point. Call it a loss, ask for a full refund, and then visit another photographer with your granddaughter. Or you could wait.
But you really wanted your photos, and I don't blame you. Some photos you can't retake. So I contacted JC Penney on your behalf. Five months after your session, the company reprinted your photos and sent them to you.

.Q: Last year, I made a $1,641 deposit for myself and a friend on a CroisiEurope river cruises to Portugal and Spain for the summer. The deposit represented 25 percent of the cost of the tour.
CroisiEurope’s terms stated that if I cancel the reservation 90 days or more before my departure date, they will refund the deposit less a $100 administrative fee per person.
I notified CroisiEurope via email on April 6, 2020, that we wanted to cancel our reservation. They responded that our money would indeed be refunded (less the fee) back to my credit card. They further stated that “refunds are delayed and are taking four to five weeks." I never received the refund. I have contacted them several times in the interim to inquire about the refund. Each time they respond that refunds are delayed.

Historically Speaking by Tom Morrow
‘I Shoot for the Stars!’ (Occasionally He Hit London)
One of the more controversial decisions of post-World War II was bringing to the U.S. a group of German rocket scientists under “Operation Paperclip.” Headed by Wernher von Braun, the group had brought down death and destruction upon England, but their technology took us to the Moon.
CroisiEurope is not disputing that they owe me the money. It has been more than a year since I canceled the booking. I would like help in getting this refund. -- Eleanor Johnson, Maynard, Mass.
A: A year is way too long to wait for a refund. CroisiEurope promised it would return the money within five weeks. They're really testing your patience. At the same time, the delay is understandable. To call 2020 the worst year ever for the travel industry might even be an understatement. It was a disaster! Some companies barely survived the pandemic, and too many went under. The cruise industry was especially hard hit, as it ground to a halt. And that's exactly what happened.
"As I am sure you understand, we’ve faced an extremely difficult year," Michael DaCosta, the general manager for North America at CroisiEurope River Cruises, explained. "Policies have been put in place that all guests affected by the coronavirus pandemic can be re-accommodated or adequately compensated."
Can you make a refund move faster? Sometimes. Disputing your credit card charges under the Fair Credit Billing Act might help. You have to notify your bank so that it reaches the creditor within 60 days after the first bill. For a transaction like this one, where you purchase a river cruise months in advance, it's a long shot. Some banks will accept the dispute, but most won't.
Travelers in a situation like yours might have gotten a better deal by waiting for the cruise line to cancel the sailing. Typically, cruise lines offer either a full refund or (at least during the pandemic) a 125 percent cruise credit. But you also risk having the cruise actually sail, which might have been dangerous.
I asked CroisiEurope River Cruises to review your case. It did and issued a prompt refund for the total amount, minus the administrative fee.

Today’s efforts to shoot for the Moon and Mars began with von Braun.
Born March 23, 1912, von Braun was the leading figure in the development of German rocket technology before and during World War II. The U.S. progress in manned space travel can be directly traced to von Braun. His life-long dream was reaching the planet Mars.
But, during World War II, more people from slave-labor camps died building the V-1 and V-2 rockets than were killed by targeted populations in England. Von Braun admitted visiting the slave-labor plant at Mittelwerk on many occasions, and called conditions at the plant "repulsive," but claimed he never witnessed any deaths or beatings, although it had become clear to him by 1944 that deaths had occurred while constructing his rockets. Some prisoners claim von Braun engaged in brutal treatment or approved of it. Von Braun designed and developed the V-1 and V-2 rockets at the Peenemünde launch site on the Baltic Sea. Hitler’s “Vengeance” rockets rained down death and destruction on London and other English cities. Von Braun always claimed he had his eye on conquering space rather than using his rockets as weapons, especially building a rocket to reach the Moon and Mars. Critics had a black-hearted joke for von Braun: “I shoot for the stars, but occasionally I hit London.”
He was supposedly a major in the SS, but he maintained being a Nazi was forced upon him – a point that continues to be debatable. During the War, Von Braun had been under Gestapo surveillance since October 1943, because he expressed more interest in space travel than weapons of war. Nazis considered this a "defeatist" attitude. SS chief Henrich
Himmler launched a false charge saying von Braun was a “Communist sympathizer” and had attempted to sabotage the V-2 program. Additionally, von Braun regularly piloted his government-provided airplane that could have allowed him to escape to England. On March 14, 1944, von Braun was arrested and detained and was taken to a Gestapo cell. Von Braun gained conditional release when Albert Speer, Reichsminister for Munitions, persuaded Hitler to reinstate von Braun so the V-2 program could continue. In his memoirs, Speer wrote that Hitler conceded von Braun was to be "protected from all prosecution as long as he remained ‘indispensable.’”
In early 1945, the Soviet Army was close to Peenemünde. Von Braun asked his staff to decide how and to whom they should surrender. Unwilling to go to the Soviets, most chose the Americans. Von Braun led a group of 500 scientists to Austria, surrendering to the American Army. Fearing documents and blueprints would be destroyed by the SS, von Braun had ordered them hidden in an abandoned mine shaft before surrendering to the U.S. Army. On June 20, 1945, the U.S. Secretary of State approved the transfer of von Braun and his rocket specialists to the United States where they were assigned to Fort Bliss just north of El Paso, Texas.
Following the War, von Braun worked developing U.S. ballistic missiles for the Army. He became a U.S. citizen and was assimilated into the National Aeronautic & Space Administration (NASA) where he served as director of the newly formed Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama. On Jan. 31, 1958, the U.S. launched America’s first satellite, Explorer 1, which signaled the birth of NASA’s space program. Von Braun was the chief architect of the Saturn V, which propelled the Apollo spacecraft on a number of missions to the Moon.
Despite von Braun’s successes, the U.S. press dwelled on von Braun's past as a member of the Nazi SS and the slave labor used to build his V-1 and V-2 rockets. Publicity and enthusiasm for NASA and space travel grew. Von Braun was even brought into American living rooms by Walt Disney, who often featured the scientist on the Hollywood mogul’s Wonderful World of Disney, a weekly TV program. Disney also opened his space-oriented “Tomorrowland” at Disneyland to keep the idea of space travel alive. Von Braun developed preliminary plans for a human mission to Mars that used a space station as a staging point. By 1960, the German scientist had become a central figure at NASA. Today, some 50 years later, NASA and commercial endeavors are working toward completing von Braun’s dream of going to Mars – a distance considerably further than the Moon. Reaching the red planet would be a giant step toward von Braun’s dream of reaching the stars. Unfortunately, von Braun never realized his goal. He died on June 16, 1977, of pancreatic cancer, in Alexandria, Virginia, at age 65, but he’ll always be remembered as a pioneer of space travel.

To give my students a better understanding of the "controversies" surrounding the book and Twain, I included in our study a 90 minute PBS documentary called Born To Trouble. I highly recommend it to anyone interested in the book, Twain, and in their true value and place in our literary and cultural history. Just thought you might be interested.

Carlsbad Rotary Provides Donations to North County Charities - The Rotary Club of Carlsbad has announced the release of substantial donations to various North San Diego County organizations as part of the Day of Giving, a day of giving and unity. Ava Payne, President of Rotary Carlsbad, said “I’m in awe of the commitment, passion, and selflessness our four Day of Giving honorees demonstrated, stepping up through their organizations to assist those unable to help themselves. A noble purpose resulting in a profound and prodigious impact.”
The Rotary Club of Carlsbad made substantial donations to the following North San Diego County groups who have seen increased demand along with additional challenges resulting from last year’s pandemic: • Devil Pups- Helping boys and girls from all backgrounds gain self-confidence and learn to take responsibility for their actions. https://devilpups.com/ • Doors of Change- Solving Youth Homelessness through Empowerment and Self Sufficiency. https://doorsofchange.org/ • Got Your Back San Diego- A weekend food assistance program developed specifically for children attending San Diego County schools. https://www.gotyourbacksandiego.org/ • Friends of La Posada- Helping those who are unsheltered in Carlsbad and North County San Diego. https://www.friendsoflaposada.org/ Scott McClatchey, Community Service Director for Rotary Carlsbad, said “Day of Giving is an annual tradition where our club recognizes local charitable organization’s doing amazing work in the community. This year’s program was particularly inspirational because of how difficult the past year has been, yet through it all these four organizations pivoted in order to continue their mission serving as a lifeline for our community’s most vulnerable population.” Each organization received a check from the Rotary Club of Carlsbad. The Rotary Club of Carlsbad was chartered in 1939 and is part of Rotary International, a worldwide organization of more than 1.2 million business, professional, and community leaders.

spyware and root kits are forms of malware defined by their purpose. You can thoroughly research each of these malware categories on the Internet, but be aware that the resulting cyber-paranoia can seriously mess with your Internet surfing pleasure.

Everyone gets “Phished” but you don’t have to be a “sucker.” Part III of III
Phishing: “The fraudulent social engineering exploit by cyber-criminals of sending messages or emails that appear to be from legitimate sources in order to induce potential victims to take actions that benefit the criminal at the expense of the victim.” Today we wrap up our three week series on “phishing.” This series was never intended to be a comprehensive analysis of the various types of “malware” vulnerabilities. There are many categories of “malware.” How many there are and what is included in each category depends on who is making the list. Viruses, key loggers, worms, Trojans, ransom ware, crypto-malware, logic bombs, bots, adware,
There are many other ways for these malware types to infect your PC, but any of them can be acquired through “phishing” exploits. That’s why we concentrated on “phishing.” Most of the computer malware infections we see these days result from PC users becoming unwilling victims of “phishing” exploits. As we pointed out last week, Cyber-criminals exploit our weaknesses. Ego, fear, greed, revenge, pity, love, hate, vanity anything that “floats your boat” is fair game for cyber-exploitation. No protection software or defensive action can guarantee that you won’t become a victim. Our recommendations here are based on our own experience in balancing effectiveness with cost and practicality.
1. If you are a Windows user you should by now have Windows 10 on your PC. Windows 10’s integrated defense (Windows Defender) should provide adequate malware scanning and firewall protection. 2. Accept hardware and software updates but don’t click WWW notices, go to the appropriate site to download updates. 3. Hover before you click to be sure that the site you click is the site you intend. 4. Check your on-line accounts
The Appraiser’s Corner Collectible Pens
Most Americans habitually pick up a pen to write something on a piece of paper, without giving much thought to the pen they are using. To most people it doesn’t matter if the pen they are using is an inexpensive throwaway pen that they were recently given as a promotional item, or a pricey Montblanc. A pen is a pen is a pen. Right? Not so fast some people would say.
All pens are not created equal. Far from it. Indeed there are scores of people who collect pens, and in particular, fountain pens.
Fountain pens have been objects of collectors primarily in the twentieth century. Indeed, fountain pens take on many shapes, sizes, and characteristics.
If you do wish to consider collecting fountain pens you should keep in mind many things. If you are offered a pen for sale, check to see that all the parts are there, including the cap rings and end pieces. Also, check the wear on the gold-plating. Look for any non-original parts as well. If there is an inscription on the nib it should match the inscription on the barrel. Be cautious of vendors who boast of all the expensive pens they have sold in
the past, and to whom they have sold pens. Usually the claims are not valid. Nowadays the most desirable pens are those made between 1900 and the mid-1930s.
In addition, of the pens most in demand, the size, rarity, workmanship and artwork, and the presence of precious stones in the design are the most desirable features. Pens with pierced and engraved work are real collector items. Regarding size, usually the bigger the better. As for specific pens, the most desirable collectable pens are the Waterman (or Swan) number 20; the Parker Giant, the Montblanc number 12 safety pen, and the Namiki Giant. The LeBoeuf number 75 or number 90 is also highly sought after.
Some early pens, in particular, were works of art. Pens were sometimes decorated with intricately hand carved snakes, Aztec heads, or even cupids. Pens decorated with precious stones were often one of a kind gifts, and even though fakes have been common, sometimes the fakes have been nearly worth as much as the pen it sought to copy.
Notable filigree pens were first made around 1897. The Waterman Company made some of the first filigrees, but the metal was generally so
regularly for signs of unauthorized access. 5. Assume that any Internet notice or Email that warns you of a computer problem is a scam. 6. Never allow any Internet contact access to your PC, all are scams. There are no exceptions. 7. If you receive an email requesting action, check the email address to see if it is really from the indicated source. We get many scam email messages each week asking for information or warning us that some action needs to be taken. Probably the simplest one is the periodic request that we sign into our email account with our password in order to verify our access. Once you do the Cyber-
crook has complete access to your account and you have no way of knowing that it even happened. Now the crook can change your password and freeze you out of your own account.
Most phony notices become obvious when you employ line 7 above. Be wary of using your PC on the Internet when you are super tired or have been drinking. Impaired judgment greatly increases your risk of getting scammed. No matter how smart or careful you are it can happen to you. If you suspect that you have been compromised take action at once to protect your finances and personal information. Do not hesitate or wait. If you suspect you have a problem, you probably do.
845 W. San Marcos Blvd San Marcos, Ca. soft that the pens did not wear well. Designs were usually based on floral or leaf patterns. Parker and Conklin filigree pens soon made their way onto the scene. Filigree pens lasted until near the end of the 1920s when it was not cost effective to produce them any longer, and today they are rare. The most desirable of the filigree pens are the Montblanc pens in spider or art deco patterns. Be careful when buying a filigree pen as fakes are common. But again, a beautiful fake might very well serve your purpose—and your pocketbook. In February, 1988 a Japanese collector paid over $2 million for the “Anemoise” fountain pen. That pen came with 60 precious stones of emeralds, rubies, sapphires, and amethysts. More information on fountain pens can be obtained from the Pen Collectors of America and the Fountain Pen Info Center.

Escondido • Mayor Paul “Mac” McNamara Greetings Escondido,
This column may be a little boring but it is about something a lot of folks are concerned about. And that is roads. This will have to be in two parts. I think you will see that the staff has a decent plan in place. This is part one.
Recognizing the importance of maintaining our infrastructure, the City has significantly increased its pavement management budget with a goal to improve the condition of City streets. Please visit the City’s website to learn more about our program, what we’ve accomplished, and for ongoing updates.https://www.escondido.org/city-of-escondido-street-maintenance-program.aspx
The City’s current Street Maintenance Program began in 2013 after a physical inspection and rating of the pavement condition of each street. The rating is based on a scale of 0-100 using criteria established by the Army Corps of Engineers. At the time of the initial inspection, the pavement condition index (PCI) Citywide was 55, or “fair” condition. Since that time, we have resurfaced 448-lane miles of streets, resulting in a substantial improvement in the overall PCI to 64. However, we continue to strive to reach our goal of an overall PCI of 70 that equates to a “good” condition rating. Next week, what are we currently working on.
Stay informed, Be Kind, Remember your neighbor, and Stay safe! Semper Fi, Mac

Page 16 • July 15, 2021
I KNOW MANY OF YOU (LIKE ME) ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO FOOTBALL SEASON. WELL, HERE'S A LITTLE RECAP OF LAST YEAR.
Alabama beat Arkansas and they fired the coach. Alabama beat Tennessee and they fired the coach. Alabama beat Auburn and they fired the coach. Then Alabama beat Notre Dame and the Pope resigned. Damn, I wish the White House had a team. •••• After landing my new job as a B & Q “Greeter - a good find for many retirees, I lasted less than a day . . . . . About two hours into my first day on the job a very loud, unattractive, mean-acting Bognor babe walked into the store with her two kids, yelling obscenities at them all the way through the entrance.
As I had been instructed, I said, pleasantly, "Good morning and welcome to B & Q." I then said, "Nice children you have there. Are they twins?"
The woman stopped yelling long enough to say, "No, they ain't effin twins. The oldest one's 9, and the other one's 7, why the hell would you think they're twins? Are you blind, or just effin stupid?"
I replied, "I'm neither blind nor stupid, Madam. I just couldn't believe someone shagged you twice. ... Have a good day and thank you for shopping at B & Q." My supervisor said I probably wasn't cut out for this line of work. •••• MALE SENSITIVITY
The room was full of pregnant women with their husbands. The instructor said, "Ladies, remember that exercise is good for you. Walking is especially beneficial. It strengthens the pelvic muscles and will make delivery that much easier. Just pace yourself, make plenty of stops and try to stay on a soft surface like grass or a path."
"Gentlemen, remember -- you're in this together. It wouldn't hurt you to go walking with her. In fact, that shared experience would be good for you both." The room suddenly became very quiet as the men absorbed this information. After a few moments a man, name unknown, at the back of the room, slowly raised his hand. "Yes?" said the instructor.
"I was just wondering if it would be all right if she carries a golf bag while we walk?" Brings a tear to your eye doesn't it? This kind of sensitivity just can't be taught. Chicken Surprise
A couple go for a meal at a Chinese restaurant and order the “Chicken Surprise”... the waiter brings the meal, served in a lidded cast iron pot.
Just as the wife is about to serve herself, the lid of the pot rises slightly and she briefly sees two beady little eyes looking around before the lid slams back down. “Good grief, did you see that?” she asks her husband. He hadn’t, so she asks him to look in the pot. He reaches for it and again the lid rises, and he sees two little eyes looking around before it slams down. Rather perturbed, he calls the waiter over, explains what is happening, and demands an explanation.
“Please sir,” says the waiter, “what you order?” The husband replies, “Chicken Surprise”. (You’re going to love this, and you’re going to hate yourself for loving it!...)
“Ah! So solly,”says the waiter,“I bring you Peeking Duck .” How Do Court Reporters Keep Straight Faces?
These are from a book called Disorder in the Courts and are things people actually said in court, word for word, taken down and published by court reporters that had the torment of staying calm while the exchanges were taking
This is Honey Bee! Honey Bee is a delightful, slightly chub-bee guinea pig, looking for a home to call his own. Honey Bee is still getting used to being picked up and handled, but with lots of patience and socialization, he will be as sweet as can bee! Honey Bee will need a large enclosure and plenty of time outside of the cage, which will be great for bonding and growing closer with him! Honey Bee loves to eat Timothy hay (and should be provided an unlimited amount), pellets and fresh greens every day. He will also need his Vitamin C supplemented, as guinea pigs do not produce their own - bell peppers are a good source! We recommend doing plenty of research before making him part of your family! Do you and Honey Bee beelong together? Well, then give us a buzz and make an appointment online to learn more! He’s available for adoption at San Diego Humane Society’s Escondido Campus at 3500 Burnet Drive. To learn more about making him part of your family, please visit sdhumane.org/adopt or call 619-299-7012.

Louisiana State Police had received numerous reports of illegal cockfights being held in the area around Abbeville and had sent their famous Detective Boudreaux from Thibodeaux to investigate. Boudreaux promptly began his investigation and then reported to his Commander the next morning.
"Dey is tree main groups involve in dis rooster Fightin," he began.
"Good work! Who are they?" the Commander asked.
Boudreaux replied confidently, "De Texas Aggies, de local Cajuns, and de Mafia from N'awlins." Puzzled, the Commander asked, "Now Boudreaux, how did you find all that out in one night?"
"Well," he replied, "I went down and done seen dat rooster fight in person. And I knowed immedjiately dat dem Aggies was involved when a duck was entered in the fight." The Commander nodded, "I'll buy that. But what about the others?"
Boudreaux nodded knowingly, "Well, I knowed de Cajuns was involved when sum body bet on de duck!" "Ah, I see, I see....." sighed the Commander. "And how did you figure the Mafia was involved?" "De duck won."
A Man's Age as Determined by a Trip to Home Depot
You are in the middle of some kind of project around the house --. Mowing the lawn, putting in a new fence, painting the living room or whatever. You are hot and sweaty, covered in dust, lawn clippings, dirt or paint. You have your old work clothes on. You know the outfit -- shorts with the hole in the crotch, old T-shirt with a stain from who-knows-what and an old pair of tennis shoes.
Right in the middle of this great home improvement project you realize you need to run to Home Depot to get something to help complete the job. Depending on your age you might do the following:
In your 20's: Stop what you are doing. Shave, take a shower, blow dry your hair, brush your teeth, floss and put on clean clothes. Check yourself in the mirror and flex. Add a dab of your favorite cologne because you never know, you just might meet some hot chick while standing in the checkout lane. And you went to school with the pretty girl running the register. In your 30's: Stop what you are doing, put on clean shorts and shirt. Change shoes. You married the hot chick so no need for much else. Wash your hands and comb your hair. Check yourself in the mirror. Still got it. Add a shot of your favorite cologne to cover the smell. The cute girl running the register is the kid sister to someone you went to school with. In your 40's: Stop what you are doing. Put on a sweatshirt that is long enough to cover the hole in the crotch of your shorts. Put on different shoes and a hat. Wash your hands. Your bottle of Brute Cologne is almost empty so you don't want to waste any of it on a trip to Home Depot. Check yourself in the mirror and do more sucking in than flexing. The hot young thing running the register is your daughter's age and you feel weird thinking she is spicy.
In your 50's: Stop what you are doing. Put on a hat; wipe the dirt off your hands onto your shirt. Change shoes because you don't want to get dog crap in your new sports car. Check yourself in the mirror and you swear not to wear that shirt anymore because it makes you look fat. The Cutie running the register smiles when she sees you coming and you think you still have it. Then you remember the hat you have on is from Bubba's Bait & Beer Bar and it says, 'I Got Worms.' In your 60's: Stop what you are doing. No need for a hat anymore. Hose the dog crap off your shoes. The mirror was shattered when you were in your 50's. You hope you have underwear on so nothing hangs out the hole in your pants. The girl running the register may be cute, but you don't have your glasses on so you are not sure. In your 70's: Stop what you are doing. Wait to go to Home Depot until the drug store has your prescriptions ready, too. Don't even notice the dog crap on
The young thing at the register stares at you and you realize your balls are hanging out the hole in your crotch.
In your 80's: Stop what you are doing. Start again. Then stop again. Now you remember you need to go to Home Depot. Go to Wal-Mart instead and wander around trying to think what it is you are looking for. You went to school with the old lady who greeted you at the front door. In your 90's & beyond: What's a home deep hoe? Something for my garden? Where am I? Who am I? Why am I reading this? Did I send it? Did you?

We had a major potato salad crisis at our Fourth-of-July barbecue. Someone forgot to designate a family member to be the official “bringer of potato salad.” So everyone took it upon themselves to bring potato salad. We had 2,927 varieties. There are few things more American than a full-scale potato salad war. When I saw all that Corningware and outdated olive drab Tupperware lined up on the buffet, all filled with concoctions of boiled potatoes and mayonnaise, it made me feel warm and patriotic inside.
I don’t have to remind you that it’s been a long year. A really long one. This backyard barbecue was long overdue. Last year my family didn’t even do a Fourth-of-July cookout. There was a pandemic going on. Instead, my wife and I sat at home and played dominoes. We had no covered dishes. No potato salad. I think we ate cold leftover Chinese takeout and watched a “Laverne and Shirley” marathon. And I hate dominoes. Thankfully, that sad year is miles behind us now.
Today, the aunts and uncles arrived by the dozens, all carrying 30-pound jugs of potato salad. My mother-in-law made several kilos of her special celery-pimento potato salad. Even a few of the little kids had prepared some potato salad, which tasted pretty good once you picked out the Lego pieces. Meanwhile, my brother-in-law was manning the charcoals, flipping hamburgers, trying to remember everyone’s picky food orders. No two burgers at our get-together were the same. In this modern age everyone is on some kind of

We had the beautiful people who only wanted 99-percent lean hamburgers. We had “keto” and “paleo” people who wanted high cholesterol beef. And lastly, we had those who chose to eat tofu and grain burgers. “The tofu is colored with delicious beet juice,” reported one vegetarian.
Me? I went straight for the potato salad. My wife had prepared enough potato salad to ruin the rear suspension of our SUV. We transported her fare in five-gallon plastic buckets that required two able bodied men to lift each heavy container.
As I write this, Uncle Herschel is still lying flat on his sofa, icing his back, popping antiinflammatory meds like peanut M&Ms. But anyway, all the coolers were stocked with plenty of cold stuff. And our buffet table was adorned with all the traditional finery.
We had sliced heirloom tomatoes, backyard cucumbers, pantry pickles, peeled Chilton County peaches, fresh corn on the cob, Methodist deviled eggs, Baptist deviled eggs, and Church of God eggs—which are just deviled eggs with the Devil cast out of them.
There was homemade ice cream, and cheese casseroles galore, fresh brewed iced tea, homemade lemonade, blueberry cobbler, pound cake, and many other items that cause your cardiologist to disown you.
We sat at splintery wooden picnic tables with our full plates and bowed our heads for the blessing. And when someone asked the Lord to make us truly grateful for all the wonderful things we have all taken
for granted in years past, I nearly cried.
Because I was realizing that this holiday felt so incredibly normal. So marvelously runof-the-mill. So much like olden times. Today was the kind of laid back affair that wouldn’t have seemed like a big deal to me before the pandemic came along. But it is a big deal. In fact it’s the biggest of deals.
Last year was a bummer. There were few festivities, people were losing their jobs, Major League Baseball had been cancelled, and birthdays were celebrated in drive-by fashion. It seemed like everyone was arguing about something trivial, and most of my friends were communicating
exclusively with memes.
But today, the heaviness of the previous year is becoming a memory, and life holds something new again. I can’t believe we’ve come this far.
Today we had a barbecue. Today we had each other. Today I listened to elderly people tell stories, and I watched humans do what they were designed to do. Be together.
I will likely be eating leftover potato salad until they write my obituary. But after the kind of great day I’ve had, my request is that they bury me with a bowl of the stuff. I hope you had a happy Fourth.
