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 members of our precious family and, often, sacrifice their own lives so that we may continue living our own. The unconditional love these animals exhibit towards us is truly humbling and we can only marvel at how this level of unswerving love and innocence is rarely equaled by us human beings towards each another.
Aside from our loyal household pets, some animals go beyond the ‘call of duty’ in helping human beings live a richer, more enjoyable life, every minute of every day.
Such is the case with Service Dogs which are trained to aid the blind, physically disabled, and even those with medical maladies such as depression, bi-polar, and seizures. According to the University of Arizona 0.9% of persons with disabilities are partnered with service dogs for a wide variety of disabilities. In 1990, Congress found that there were 43 million Americans with disabilities: “Suggesting that there are approximately 387,000 service dogs across the United States.”
One of the more remarkable traits of these heroic canine companions is their unusual ability to “anticipate seizures” before they happen. Such specially-trained service dogs are called, “Seizure Response Dogs,” which are partnered with people with seizure-related illnesses such as epilepsy. This phenomenon is not fully understood by the scientific community, nevertheless, its reality is fully accepted. This is truly an astonishing ability which dogs seem to possess within their realm of instincts, an inherent trait which humans do not have. The self-sacrificing heroics of such seizure-response dogs are most compelling. This specially-trained service animal may even --voluntarily -- place its body in-between the seizing person and the floor – thus breaking the fall of the person at the inception of their seizure attack! Their love and devotion seems to go beyond their normal training habits!
A sobering fact is that many of these specially-trained service dogs had to be rescued, themselves, from various animal shelters where they were scheduled to be euthanized (put to death). These dogs from various The Paper - 760.747.7119
local shelters comprise unwanted pets and puppies. Some are saved from death, re-homed, and trained as four-footed heroes for a variety of disabled people. Most are not.
Tragically, most are killed, simply because they were not loved enough to keep. Dan McManus suffers from anxiety, and has trouble focusing on important matters, such as when to take his medication, or keeping critical doctor appointments. He also has bouts of being extremely excited known as ‘hyperactivity,’ which is a great distraction to others around him. He can-
not help acting this way. does.
As if these disabilities were not enough, McManus also suffers from night terrors and panic attacks. Night terrors are uncontrollable nightmares when he screams and is terrified while in a dream state, often flailing his arms and legs around wildly. His heart rate zooms to a dangerous level because of the extreme fear that consumes him. On top of it all, Dan McManus would eventually be diagnosed with bipolar disorder.
It was abundantly clear that McManus -- with a variety of clinical
Four-Footed Heroes Continued on Page 2
disorders -- needed a constant companion to soothe his bouts of anxiety and calm him down during his horrible panic attacks. His life required someone to be with him 24/7 to protect him from his blackest, most vulnerable moments, when his bi-polar malady seemed to get the upper hand and he thought of taking his own life as a ‘way out.’ Then one day, in 2003, he found that perfect love affair -- he acquired a service dog. The dog came to him through an intensive training program designed to assist such people as McManus. His new canine companion answered to the name of Bandit. For the first time, McManus experienced a loyal partner who

Four-Footed Heroes Cont. from Page 1
would love, accept, and take care of him without reservation. The Australian cattle dog became so attached and so protective of McManus that he followed him everywhere, nudging him with his nose whenever he sensed a panic attack was about to occur. Bandit shadowed his master so diligently that Dan very quickly decided to change his best friend’s name from Bandit to “Shadow.” The name fit perfectly. Shadow was always there, beside his master. The dog’s instincts would sometimes move Shadow out of a sleeping position by his master’s feet, suddenly rising up on all fours to begin nudging Dan’s hands before an anxiety attack or other abnormal conditions seemed to be brewing. On such occasions, Shadow would crawl onto his master’s lap, if necessary, to physically comfort McManus through any emotional crisis. And it worked!
There was only one problem which Dan McManus over-looked in his new relationship with his canine companion. Prior to obtaining his personal service dog, McManus found that hang gliding was a miraculous cure for his various mental abnormalities, at least during the times he was airborne. There was something indefinable in flying horizontally off a cliff and then soaring peacefully over the terrain far below. It was almost like a magical therapy,

I went out for a ride-along with the Escondido police this morning.
We were called to an apartment and found a woman holding a bloody 5iron standing over a lifeless man.
The detective asks, "Ma'am, is that your husband?" "Yes" says the woman.
"Did you hit him with that golf club?"
"Yes, yes, I did." The woman begins to sob, drops the club, and puts her hands on her face. "How many times did you hit him?"
"I don't know --put me down for a five." ••••• Waxing eloquent on the sins of the flesh, the dynamic young preacher raised himself to full height, leaned
releasing Dan McManus from all his earthly pains that seemed to comeand-go when he was on the ground.
However, there was a serious drawback for his specially-trained service dog, Shadow. Shadow was deeply attached to his master and he was trained never, ever to leave his master’s side – especially whenever McManus was airborne and seemed in great danger. This made the dog’s instincts to go haywire, making Shadow in distress and feeling detached from his normal duties. While McManus was in the air hanggliding, Shadow was in deep separation-anxiety, whimpering, pacing back-and-forth, and crying for his master’s return to earth. Shadow is classified as a ‘psychiatric service dog’ that assists McManus through various mental episodes, such as deep depression, bi-polar events, and separation anxiety. As such, the Australian cattle dog would become deeply troubled at not being physically close to his master, not doing the job he was diligently trained for, while McManus was soaring high overhead. Alone. As Dan McManus would begin running to launch off for his hang-gliding adventures, Shadow would run after him – not understanding – and would often nip at McManus’ feet, sometimes even trying to grasp the equipment with his bare teeth to keep his master close-quarters and safe! While McManus was in the air, the young pup would bark, whimper, and cry mercilessly on the ground

Then, one crucial day, it happened. It had to happen. McManus would recollect in his own words, “He (Shadow) wanted to go along, and he didn’t really like to see me up there by myself. He needs to keep me safe. He would chase me and jump up at me and sometimes get my foot and hang on a little bit.” While the Australian cattle dog was still just a young pup, he was totally brave in his dedication to Dan McManus. The Australian pup had already brought peace and love to McManus’ distraught life but, now, the service dog would battle his own animal instincts for self-preservation and survival in order to protect his master. And he would prove it. Dan McManus had a most ridiculous idea. Crazy, might be the better word. The Utah resident decided to torment his best friend no longer. As McManus expressed it, “He wanted to go along. He didn’t like to see me up there by myself.” McManus’ next statement would make wide national television news. He would initially tell Utah television station KSTU about his service dog, “He was born to fly. He needs to fly with me to keep me safe, in his own mind.” It was the perfect solution.
Dan McManus quickly set about creating his own special flying harness for his personal wonder dog! Normally fearful of great heights, Shadow would rebuke his own animal instincts – just to be with his
went upstairs and knocked on his door to see if everything was OK. She could hear him through the door and he said that he was running late and would be down shortly so she went back to the dining area.
An hour later he still hadn't arrived so she went back up towards his room and she found him on the stairs. He was coming down the stairs but was having a hell of time. He had a death grip on the hand rail and seemed to have trouble getting his legs to work right. She told him she was going to call an ambulance but he told her no, he wasn't in any pain and just wanted to have his breakfast. So she helped him the rest of the way down the stairs and he had his breakfast. When he tried to return to his room he was completely unable to get up even the first step so they called an ambulance for him. A couple hours later she called the hospital to see how he was doing. The receptionist there said he was fine, he just had both of his legs in one leg of his boxer shorts. ••••• Missing Wife
A husband went to the police station to file a "missing person" report for his missing wife: Husband :-I lost my wife, she went shopping & hasn't come back yet. Inspector :-What is her height? Husband:- Not sure! Inspector :-Slim or healthy?. Husband:- Maybe slim maybe healthy...not sure!
‘daddy.’ According to animal behaviorists, dogs are pack animals and instinctively come to think of their respective masters as fathers and mothers. This inherent bonding is ‘imprinted’ in their basic values when growing up with humans.
The young service canine stayed remarkably calm at elevations of 5,000 feet straight up, as he and Dan McManus soared the blue yonder together – free at last – from separation anxiety! The sight of these two together, paragliding, above Salt Lake City, Utah, was too big of a story to remain under wraps. FOX 13 reported it as a remarkable “Human Interest Story” of a service dog and his human patient, enjoying a therapeutic moment together, in the skies. Passersby below soon marveled at the sight of dog and human paragliding, together! Shadow’s paws can be seen in all photo flights to be clasped around his master’s left arm (under and over), holding, protecting, calming, McManus as he was trained to do.
According to his Facebook page, McManus has been flying for 36 years now, as of July 2016, and has completed thousands of flights. The Utah hang glider now owns “Eagle’s Nest Hang Gliding & Paragliding,” and Shadow is his most loyal customer! The wonder dog, Shadow, outfitted in his special heavy-duty harness, has

been the popular topic of television specials, newspapers, and magazines. They both can be viewed today on multiple websites simply under “Dan McManus and Shadow.” The videos are at once stunning, unique, and emotionally uplifting! Unlimited love of a dog towards his master.
Dan McManus’s lonely, tormented life changed back in 2003 when Shadow first came into his life. McManus now relishes his new life. He is still diagnosed as bipolar, still has occasional panic attacks, etc., but now-a-days he has the perfect miracle cure that cannot be found with any medical prescription. Who would have prescribed such a wild remedy? Much less that it would even work? It did. Shadow and McManus continue to soar above the beautiful Utah scenery, today. As one source put it, “Seeing the two flying together can easily be described as therapy for both of them.” They no longer have separation anxiety. Shadow and “his patient,” Dan McManus, flying the skies together, paragliding a dizzying 5,000 feet above the ground!
Michael Hingson has a totally different set of circumstances than Dan McManus, mentioned above. Hingson was born blind and his affliction made it necessary for him to acquire a service dog trained in a different complex set of rules. His female Labrador retriever, named Roselle, is trained as a guide dog. The commands are remarkably varied and yet are quickly followed by Roselle, who is openly obedient, loving, and closely-attached to her owner. Such seeing-eye dogs are not viewed as merely service animal companions. Instead, they are embraced and loved as one would a family member. Roselle was bona-fide family.

One early morning on his way to work, Michael Hingson and guide dog, Roselle, took the usual elevator trip up to his office, where Hingson was a computer sales manager. For some reason, Hingson arrived earlier than usual. As he worked, Roselle, dozed quietly at his feet. The world was about to change for Michael Hingson and his precious seeing-eye dog. It would be a most terrifying moment that would ripple across the planet and occupy every major television news station.
At precisely 8:46 a.m. a sudden and frightening sound, a huge heavy sound, rocked the entire building! Sitting on the 78th floor, Michael Hingson froze at his desk, sensing that his world was about to turn violently upside down. The morning of September 11, 2001, had set out to be a most ordinary one. How quickly that would change. The 78th floor of the North Tower of the World Trade Center seemed to be rolling, moving its massive structure as if it were a sleeping giant that was now awake, slowly stretching, resonating a deep, low-sound resembling distant rolling thunder, almost as if the building, itself, were alive, moving, shifting, vibrating.
Suddenly, Hingson heard loud screams throughout the floor! His dog Roselle was already on all four feet, fully alert, standing guard, calmly surveying all the commotion. Despite seeing and listening to all the shouting, screaming, and running about, Roselle stood her ground! She was trained to assist her master in every situation and, despite all her inborne instincts, she refused to flee but stood resolute, solid paws planted on the vibrating floor beneath her, and watched, guarding her master. Unknown to Michael Hingson at the time, American Airlines Flight 11 – commandeered by terrorists – had just plunged at a ferocious 466 mph into the north face of his North Tower of the World Trade Center,

plunging itself deeply between floors 93 and 99, engulfing the entire upper building in a ferocious fire!
Powerful shock waves travelled all the way down to the ground, and then up again! People below these upper floors frantically begin to evacuate! Tragically, no one above the impact zone is able to do so. As many as 250 human beings, trapped by fired and smoke in the upper floors are left no viable recourse – one by one, they jump to their deaths! Michael Hingson is not aware of these circumstances. At present, he is standing by his desk, mystified, frightened, slightly disoriented. Screams all around him and the shuffling of feet and quick-running are all processed in his mind. His blindness, which shrouded him in eternal darkness since birth, made his ears that much keener. He knew he had to react quickly. He knew time was running out for him. And for his loving companion guide dog. But Hingson knew he had to make time for a last minute phone call. He called his wife. It was brief and to the point. He told her that there was some kind of explosion in his building. He told her he loved her. He promised her that he would be home soon. Then, he hung up.
By this time he was left alone in his office with his service dog, except for co-workers David and Frank. Horrible screaming could still be heard outside his doorway, people stampeding to escape. All this time, his guide dog Roselle stood, obediently, by his side, despite the chaos and screams of terror and full-stage panic. Fifty-one-year-old Michael Hingson now knew -Roselle was his only hope to get out alive. She was alert, and waiting for any sig-

nal from Michael Hingson that she would quickly obey. It suddenly came. Grasping her harness reins he yelled, “Forward!” Hingson was now fully fearful of his predicament. “Forward!” he immediately repeated. Though only 2 ½ years old, and despite the intense distraction, panic, and the turmoil of stampeding human beings around her– she calmly guided her master, navigating carefully, to the nearest stairwell. The stairwell?! Why not the nearest elevator?! She just knew. In such a firestorm, any elevator would surely be a death sentence. Roselle could smell the fire. Her keen nose has a sharper, more delicate sense of smell than any human alive! She sprung into action. This was no trial. This was no demonstration of skills, such as in a test or rehearsal. No. This was the real thing. And she, instinctively, knew. Roselle’s intense training was now at stake. There could be no deadly risk of mistake this time. She would not disappoint. If necessary, she would lay down her own life to save him. She was now protecting her daddy, or mommy, as she simply understood it.
By now, all chaos broke out. It was evident that the entire upper building was engulfed in flames and things were getting worse by the seconds! As a blind man who knew such details, Hingson was fully aware that there were exactly 1,463 steps down from where he stood to outside the Tower One building.
When Hingson and Roselle had slowly made their way down to the 50th floor at approximately 9:03 a.m. Eastern Standard Time, a second American Airlines airplane, flight 175, crashes deep into the South Tower, smashing at a terrifying 590 mph, slicing between floors 77 and

On Wednesday, July 13th, at 11:05 p.m., the City of Carlsbad Police Department received calls from multiple witnesses who observed a hit-and-run collision in the 600 block of Chestnut near Roosevelt Street and Walnut Avenue. The witnesses reported to the Police Department that a truck had driven into a vehicle that was driving on Chestnut repeatedly in what appeared to be an intentional act to damage the vehicle and injure the driver. The vehicle was pushed into one additional parked car and a residence after which the driver left the scene. The City of Carlsbad Fire Department was called to the scene to provide medical aid to the 32-year-old male driver of the vehicle. The driver was transported to Scripps La Jolla with minor injuries. No occupants of the residence were injured.
The truck is described as a light-colored, full-sized, lifted truck similar to a Nissan Titan. The truck would have frontend damage and possibly gray paint transfer from the incident. There is currently no description of the truck driver other than male. The victim’s car is a gray Nissan Versa. The additional parked vehicle is a BMW. The investigation into the reason behind the incident and the truck driver’s identity is in progress.
Any witnesses to the incident or anyone with knowledge of the incident are

Following howls of protest from residents near an earlier planned site for a water treatment plant near El Norte Parkway and Washington Ave., the city of Escondido has backpedaled away from that site and now has identified the desired future location of a large recycled water treatment plant. The new proposed site is at Washington Avenue and Ash, city owned property.
Last evening, (Wednesday) the council was asked to approve a $200,000 contract for engineering services for the redesign of the plant given the new location. The planning commission will then need to approve a conditional use permit. Unlike the previous site, the 4.57-acre city-owned parcel is zoned commercial and is bordered by Washington Avenue to the north, Ash Street to the west, the flood control channel to the south and a three-story retirement facility to the east. Recently, the Escondido Mutual Water Company’s maintenance yard was located on the land. Currently the parcel is being used for a contractor staging area. It is mostly vacant and surrounded by a deteriorating chain-link fence.
City Manager Graham Mitchell said the engineers will have to determine whether the site is suitable for the plant. He said the retirement home to the east

Well . . . I’m in love. Again.
As a matter of chance I wound up seated across the breakfast table from a delightful young lady by name of Donna Lee. I had been invited by good friend, fellow Kiwanian, and a member of Eschondido High School’s class of 1973, Joe Rotta, to attend the Cougar Athletic Club’s gathering at Escondido High School this past Saturday, one of four they stage each year.

She’s a beautiful lady. Widow of the late Robert Lee. His family had at one time owned Escondido Lumber. His father had started it in 1920’s. As we chatted, I noted a tag on her blouse that said, “Donna, ‘46.”
“Is that the year you graduated?” I asked.
“It was,” she said, “and I’m 88 years old. Lots of women try to hide their age . . . but when you get to our age we kinda like to brag about it . . . kinda like little kids who say . . ‘I’m 8 and a half . . . but I’m gonna be 9.’ We do the same thing - I’m 88 . . . but I’m gonna be 89.” Well!

••••• Another very impressive turnout was discovered by Evelyn Madison. She visited the Orange Glen High School campus and saw one jam packed track and field event with hundreds of tents for teams, participants and vaendors. Good pal, Clarke Dailey, points out the Track Meet was actually California State Games. Winners from this competition go on to an annual event. The winners compete in the State Games of America every other year held at different locations throughout the US.
This was a BIG DEAL! We’re gonna follow this and report back what all happened.

85. All 65 passengers onboard Flight 175 would instantly die on impact. Unknown hundreds inside the building, also, would perish immediately. One of the stairwells in the South Tower remains unblocked. This leads many people to, mistakenly, climb the stairs towards the roof in hopes for a rooftop rescue from emergency evacuation teams. The rescue never comes. Deadly temperatures on the top parts of the building had just climbed to more than 1,000 degrees!
Such details were not yet known to Hingson. The smell of smoke and jet fuel is almost overwhelming. While humans descending the stairs may cover their nose and mouths with handkerchiefs, shirts, or blouses – service dogs cannot. Roselle is deeply panting and appears exhausted. The stairwell temperatures have suddenly soared to over 90 degrees. Yet, she proceeds as best she can. No air was circulating and Hingson heard her panting more heavily now. Her throat wretched by jet-fuel flames and heavy smoke encased her. Unlike her human counterparts, she had no nose or mouth covering. She was now growing more weak, by the moments. A terrified woman screamed, “We’re not going to make it! We’re going to die!” Remarkably, Roselle moved towards the panicstruck woman and kept nudging the lady’s trembling hands in an effort to calm her. The woman stops screaming and calmly looks down at Roselle.
Miraculously, Roselle soothes the lady and she begins to slowly pet her, finally smiling as if -- somehow – hope was transferred from dog to human. Roselle now turns to her duties at hand, and up to thirty people now walk behind her as if she were some sort of savior. Proceeding downward, they are met by firefighters going upwards, in the opposite directions. These firstresponders recognize the service dog leading her blind master and ask Michael Hingson if he needs assistance downward. Hingson answers “No” but thanks them nonetheless. The firefighters each briefly pause and lovingly pet Roselle for doing such an outstanding job. Hingson allows them to pet, and lovingly fondle Roselle. Then, off they disappeared upward. Hingson would later find that these brave firefighters would never make it back alive. His only comfort is that their last touch, embrace, and petting of his dog -their last encounter with unconditional love before their deaths in the deadly Tower aftermath – would come from Roselle. Finally reaching the lobby of the World Trade Center, Hingson was deeply worried over his family member, Roselle, who valiantly served to comfort and help calm countless lives in their descent from a deadly inferno and collapsing debris. Roselle had safely led up to 30 human beings down 1,463 steps, where they followed her, obediently, trusting a beautiful Labrador retriever. The deadly journey took just over one hour. Many would live to tell the
story of one courageous dog they encountered on a congested, smokefilled stairwell.
t took its toll on Roselle. At the building lobby she was exhausted to the brink of collapse. She only stayed strong enough to guide her master and coworkers to safety. Water pipes had broken in the lobby and Roselle drank from the puddles of water on the floor. Outside the lobby there was panic and stampeding everywhere! Witnesses said later that the guide dog’s coat was no longer golden in color, but fully gray, as she was by now completely covered in ash.
The building was crumbling and debris was falling from the skies. Roselle instinctively knew her job was not yet done. She wanted to move Michael Hingson to further safety. But, could she? The tower was now collapsing. Chunks of both concrete and iron were falling like a waterfall. Hingson kept his commands simple: “Left, right.” She knew best and followed his commands. Seeing a blind man and his seeing-eye dog, a New York City policeman quickly steered them into the subway. The story of Roselle’s heroic and self-sacrificing exploits quickly spread. She knew not what was happening, but she became a celebrity, a bona-fide star to millions of adoring

Later that same day I attended the Drum and Bugle Competition, also at Orange Glen High School and also with a beautiful turnout of participants and audience members.
Beautiful, cool evening, with four bands competing, then a half hour break and the remaining four band finished the competition. We watched the first four bands and were very impressed with the pageantry, the precise formation marching, the music, the color. We were not able to stay for the second half but of the first half, I thought the group from Riverside was superb.
It was a production of the Gold Drum and Bugle Corps in cooperation with the Orange Glen Marching Band. Champion Drug and Bugle teams strutted their stuff and wowed the crowd . . . and me.At the end of the evning the Cal Blue Devils B from Concord, CA., took first place; 2nd position went to the Santa Clara Vanguards from Santa Clara, California and third place went to Gold of Oceanside, CA.
The staff and kids work their tails off to put on these shows and competition. It takes $250,000 to outfit the teams in uniforms, instruments, electronics, supplies and transport. They are always looking for donors and sponsors to support them. Those kids are looooookin’ good!

Letters to the Editor Cont. from Page 4 From Friedrich
Was at Cruisin' Grand yesterday (Friday). It's great fun strolling along with friends and loved ones and taking in all the nostalgic sights of yesteryear at Cruisin' Grand: everything from 1900 automobiles to 1964 Corvettes (my fave), and custom classics, hot rods -- even old John Deere tractors!! Also, the tons of people that recognize me and come up to shake my paw is always a most welcomed treat for me!
I spend some time with some elderly retirees in various rest homes. They have little left in life to look forward to, save The Paper each and every Thursday. One elderly woman (Sadie) has no family or kin. She has been widowed for over twenty years now. She said she 'wants' to keep on living because she 'can't wait' to read what "is the latest word in The Paper. Oh, I just love it. It keeps me going!"

On the other end of the stick, I know skateboarders and high school students who read The Paper constantly. Military personnel as well. I personally have been the dinner guest of U.S. Marine families that wanted to meet me and, after a breakdown of barriers (called shyness on my part), I'm so very glad they persisted. The reward and pleasure was truly on my side of the table! I salute the U.S. Marine Corps! Also, special tribute to you, Phillip Wick, out at Spring Valley -- you're a true American, also!
I've heard many a person come up to me and say with twinkling eyes, "I love my paper -- every single Thursday!" Notice the word "my" (paper).
What an amazing feeling for these members of our society to feel that this paper 'belongs' to them -- lock, stock, and barrel. say. I believe they are all correct -- The Paper belongs to them, each and everyone of them. I don't believe there is any higher compliment above saying "My paper." It conveys a powerful feeling of inextricable love and partnership between reader and publication -- and that's the love-affair which many periodicals only dream about. With Escondido's The Paper -- it is simply a fact: The Paper now belongs to them.
End of sermon. Just so you know, Lyle and Evelyn, you have truly given a gift that 'keeps on giving' every single Thursday. Can you imagine if The Paper were to suddenly vanish; go away; cease to exist? How many human beings who have voiced great love and adoration would be affected? How many Thursdays would now feel 'empty' for many because the bin was now empty of copies of The Paper? How many elderly would feel suddenly abandoned? And alone? With no feeling of connection with other readers? No Chuckles to make them laugh through their respective pain and loneliness? To all my friends, we couldn't do all of this without you! You're part of the family! And it is us -- who thank you! /s/Friedrich Gomez Escondido, CA.
Another Friedrich Fan
Hi Mr. Davis,
I have enjoyed your paper since discovering it some time ago. I am among Friedrich Gomez's fans and enjoy many of his articles.
I understand that he is a member of the Kumeyaay Indian Tribe and think that many of your readers would be very interested in learning about his experiences as part of that tribe, both as a child and as an adult. Thank you for considering this idea and continue your great paper. Sincerely,

(This is amazing and should bring tears of laughter to your eyes. I wonder how often we take for granted that children understand what we are teaching?) A child was asked to write a book report on the entire Bible. Here is what was written:
The Children's Bible in a Nutshell
In the beginning, which occurred near the start, there was nothing but God, darkness, and some gas. The Bible says,'The Lord thy God is one,' but I think He must be a lot older than that. Anyway, God said, 'Give me a light!' and someone did. Then God made the world. He split the Adam and made Eve. Adam and Eve were naked, but they weren't embarrassed because mirrors hadn't been invented yet. Adam and Eve disobeyed God by eating one bad apple, so they were driven from the Garden of Eden .....Not sure what they were
Saluting Law Enforcement
Now seems an appropriate time to salute the brave men and women of law enforcement. Without them, our lives of safety, security and freedom wouldn’t be possible.
This region is fortunate to have the San Diego County Sheriff ’s Department, covering the unincorporated areas and the cities of Vista and San Marcos, along with two municipal police departments which serve the cities of Temecula and Escondido. In addition, the California Highway Patrol is ever present along our freeways and local highways.
In response to the recent tragedy in Dallas, Escondido Police Chief Craig Carter issued the following statement to the men and women of his department: “We all took an oath to protect and serve and it is exactly in these times we are needed most. You all represent what is the best in our honorable profession and I am confident that you will
driven in though, because they didn't have cars. Adam and Eve had a son, Cain, who hated his brother as long as he was Abel.
Pretty soon all of the early people died off, except for Methuselah, who lived to be like a million or something. One of the next important people was Noah, who was a good guy, but one of his kids was kind of a Ham. Noah built a large boat and put his family and some animals on it. He asked some other people to join him, but they said they would have to take a rain check. After Noah came Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Jacob was more famous than his brother, Esau, because Esau sold Jacob his birthmark in exchange for some pot roast. Jacob had a son named Joseph who wore a really loud sports coat. Another important Bible guy is Moses, whose real name was Charlton Heston. Moses led the Israel Lights out of Egypt and away from the evil Pharaoh after God sent ten plagues on Pharaoh's people. These plagues included frogs, mice, lice, bowels, and no cable.
God fed the Israel Lights every day with manicotti. Then he gave them His Top Ten Commandments. These include: don't lie, cheat, smoke, dance, or covet your neighbor's stuff. Oh, yeah, I just thought of one more: Humor thy father and thy mother. One of Moses' best helpers was Joshua who was the first Bible

all continue to be professional as the nation watches our reaction.”
I couldn’t agree more. I am in frequent contact with Chief Carter and other local police officials regarding legislation that impacts public safety in our state and region. I also take great pride in publicly acknowledging the bravery and sacrifice of our men and women in blue. One example is the upcoming Scottish Rite Law Enforcement Recognition Night, at which officers from throughout San Diego County will be receiving Assembly certificates from me honoring their service. National events aside, the burden on our local police is heavy. We owe the men and women of law enforcement our respect and support, and most of all, our heartfelt thanks for their willingness to wear a badge in an increasingly dangerous world.

Americans. She was properly saluted and recognized, bringing world attention to all service dogs, not just to herself.
As history would have it, Roselle and owner, Michael Hingson, would appear on numerous television shows such as, “Larry King Live,” and the “CBS Morning Show,” as well as “Regis and Kathy,” to give just a few examples. Michael Hingson and Roselle even appeared on a float during the 2002 Rose Parade in Pasadena, California, where many people gave her a long, sustained, standing ovation! Her celebrity helped make Hingson a visible spokesperson for Guide Dogs For the Blind.
Roselle was not the only heroic dog during the 911 tragedy in New York. Salty, a male Labrador retriever (same breed as Roselle), also led his owner and others to safety from the World Trade Center. Both Salty and Roselle received the international “Dickin Medal” by the British charity “The People’s Dispensary for Sick Animals.”
In 2004 Roselle developed a blood disorder and was retired from guiding, three years after she distinguished herself in the worst terrorist attack on September 11, 2001. Such rescue and service dogs often develop emotional stress, much as humans do, in trying to save lives. Their deep love for their human family can take a deadly, emotional toll. On June 24, 2011, she was diagnosed as having a stomach ulcer. She valiantly held on until she finally died in 2011 at age 13. She never wished to leave her “daddy’s” side, as she was trained. But, her courageous heart finally stopped its rhythmic beating, leaving a rich legacy she never even knew existed. Even after her death, Roselle would continue to live in the memory of countless 911 survivors. Not even the hand of death could wipe away her precious memory, nor stop the love and accolades that would continue her way. Perhaps the ancient bards and Biblical prophets were right all along: True love abideth even after the jaws of death. True love never dies, but conquers all. It remains the only refuge that, verily, is stronger than death, itself. It was true. Death could not stop the adoration that continued to come her way. Many 911 survivors are alive, today, because of her. And they remember her name.
After her death, Roselle went on to be posthumously named “American Dog of the Year 2011,” by the American Humane Society. And she also had a book written about her titled, “Thunder Dog.” Imagine that. We Americans never forget our fallen heroes. Be they four-footed, or two.
Many canines serve as police and military dogs. Many are decorated. Trackr, for example, is credited with locating the last survivor found
beneath the rubble following the 911 terrorist attack at the Twin Towers. Two days after searching and finding survivors, Trakr collapsed from smoke inhalation and burns to his body and had to be treated for his injuries. Trakr died in 2009 but he was so courageous in his duties that his DNA was cloned and lives on in five subsequent “Trakrs” who would be born and carry on his legacy to this very day.
All these four-footed heroes showed love beyond human understanding. Their unconditional love is rarely equaled by their human counterparts. Love was their quintessential power.
In the Old Testament Bible are inscribed these simple words: “These things will last forever: faith, hope, and love. But the greatest of these is love.” (1 Corinthians 13:13)
As long as there is love in the world – love in all its varied expressions – there, also, will be the story and memory of a most courageous, selfsacrificing dog, named Roselle.
“I’ve had many other dogs,” Michael Hingson would say, “but there is only one Roselle.”
Historically Speaking by Tom Morrow
O’ Say Did You Know…
America’s most popular song was written by a lyricist who wrote only one tune, and that wasn’t even meant as a musical piece – it was a poem.
The poet was Francis Scott Key who was born Aug. 1, 1779. He was a slave-owning American lawyer, author, and amateur poet from Georgetown, a suburb of Washington, D.C. Key wrote that poem, which became the lyrics to our national anthem, "The Star-Spangled Banner."
Key was born on the family plantation, Terra Rubra, in what was then part of Frederick County, now Carroll County, Maryland. His father, Capt. John Ross Key, was a lawyer, judge, and officer in the Continental Army. Francis Key graduated from St. John's College, Annapolis, Maryland, and also read law under his uncle Philip Barton Key. He married Mary Tayloe Lloyd on Jan. 1, 1802. The author, Friederich Gomez

During the War of 1812, Key, accompanied by the British Prisoner Exchange Agent, Col. John Stuart Skinner, dined aboard the British ship HMS Tonnant, as the guests of three British officers: Vice Admiral Alexander Cochrane, Rear Admiral George Cockburn, and Major General Robert Ross. Colonel Skinner and Key were there to negotiate the release of U.S. prisoners, one of whom was Dr. William Beanes, a resident of Upper Marlboro, Maryland. He had been arrested after jailing marauding British troops who were looting local farms. Skinner, Key, and Beanes were not allowed to return to their own ship because they had become familiar with the strength and position of the British units, as well as the British intent to attack Baltimore. Thus, Key was unable to do anything but watch the bombarding of the American forces at Fort McHenry during the Battle of Baltimore on the night of Sept. 13-14, 1814. At dawn, Key was able to see an American flag still waving and reported this to the American prisoners below deck. Back in Baltimore and inspired, Key wrote a poem about his experience, "Defence of Fort McHenry," which was soon published in William Pechin's the American and Commercial Daily Advertiser on Sept. 21, 1814. He took the poem to Thomas Carr, a music publisher, who adapted it to the rhythms of composer John Stafford Smith's "To
Anacreon in Heaven," a popular tune Key had already used as a setting for his 1805 song "When the Warrior Returns," celebrating U.S. heroes of the First Barbary Coast War. (Key used the "star spangled" flag imagery in the earlier song.) It has become better known today as "The Star-Spangled Banner." Though somewhat difficult to sing, it became increasingly popular, competing with "Hail, Columbia" (1796) as the de facto national anthem by the Mexican-American War and American Civil War. More than a century after its first publication, the song was adopted as the American national anthem, first in 1916, by an Executive Order from President Woodrow Wilson, (which had little effect beyond requiring military bands to play what became known as the "Service Version") and then by a Congressional resolution in 1931, signed by President Herbert Hoover. . Ironically, in 1861, during the beginning of the American Civil War, Key's grandson, Francis Key Howard, was imprisoned in Fort McHenry with the Mayor of Baltimore, George William Brown and other locals deemed to be proSouth.
Key was a distant cousin and the namesake of famed 20th century author F. Scott Fitzgerald, whose full name was Francis Scott Key Fitzgerald.
In 1843, Key died at the home of his daughter Elizabeth Howard in Baltimore from pleurisy and was initially interred in Old Saint Paul's Cemetery in the vault of John Eager Howard. In 1866, his body was moved to his family plot in Frederick at Mount Olivet Cemetery. Despite several efforts to preserve it, the Francis Scott Key Georgetown residence was ultimately dismantled in 1947. The residence had been located at 3516–18 M Street. The Ft. McHenry Star Spangled Banner is on display at the Smithsonian in Tom Morrow's books are available at Amazon.com in soft-cover or via Kindle E-mail.

In most cases, air conditioning problems stem back to low levels of refrigerant. Unfortunately, replacing the refrigerant will not be enough to fix the problem. If your refrigerant levels are low, we will need to determine why.
If it is because of a leak, we will need to determine where the leak is coming from before we can repair it. If there is no problem with your refrigerant levels, then we will move on to rule out other issues that could be causing your air conditioner to malfunction.

guy to use spies. Joshua fought the battle of Geritol and the fence fell over on the town. After Joshua came David. He got to be king by killing a giant with a slingshot. He had a son named Solomon who had about 300 wives and 500 porcupines. My teacher says he was wise, but that doesn't sound very wise to me. After Solomon there were a bunch of major league prophets. One of these was Jonah, who was swallowed by a big whale and then barfed up on the shore. There were also some minor league prophets, but I guess we don't have to worry about them.
After the Old Testament came the New Testament. Jesus is the star of The New Testament. He was born in Bethlehem in a barn. (I wish I had been born in a barn too, because my mom is always saying to me, 'Close the door! Were you born in a barn?' It would be nice to say, 'As a matter of fact, I was.')
During His life, Jesus had many arguments with sinners like the Pharisees and the Democrats. Jesus also had twelve opossums. The worst one was Judas Asparagus. Judas was so evil that they named a terrible vegetable after him. Jesus was a great man. He healed many leopards and even preached to some Germans on the Mount. But the Democrats and all those guys put

The concept of a protest is protected in the first amendment of our constitution. On July 7th, there was a peaceful protest march taking place in Escondido. That same day, there was a protest march in Dallas, Texas, that took an entirely different turn.

Messi, a 10-month-old American Staffordshire Terrier, is looking for a new best friend. Since entering San Diego Humane Society’s care, this dapper boy has been very sweet with his caregivers and loves to frolic and play. Due to lack of proper socialization when he was younger, Messi would like to be only pet in his new home. But don’t worry, his endless love is sure to fill your heart with more joy than you ever thought possible! His ideal home would be with an active family who can take him on plenty of adventures, as well as take the time to teach him proper manners with positive reinforcement training. To help his new parents get started on the right paw, he will receive two free training classes with his adoption! Messi is available at San Diego Humane Society’s Escondido Campus at 3450 E Valley Parkway. To learn more about making Messi part of your family, please call 760888-2275.
The Escondido march was organized by residents who feel strongly that the Escondido Police Department needs to cut its working ties with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). This friction has existed for many years. Many residents feel anger, sadness and frustration that years of supplication have been fruitless. The Dallas march was organized by Black Lives Matter to raise
ing making bubbles and paintings, work with ice and evaporation, discover compost and use it in planting, make mud, and float sailboats. The session will also include conservation lessons. The class runs from 10am12noon at Alta Vista Gardens, 1270 Vale Terrace Drive, Vista, at the top of the hill inside Brengle Terrace Park. Class fee is $5/child, which supports the Garden. Accompanying adults pay garden entry fee of $5/person and stay with their children. Registration includes visit to the 14-acre gardens. Pre-registration is required at email@example.com or call 760.822.6824. Visit altavistagardens.org.
Local Woman’s Club Receives Thanks from Adopted Marine Squadron Members of Contemporary Women of North County (CWONC) are extremely proud of their adopted Marines and were recently presented a framed certificate of thanks by Crystal Gates, Family Readiness Officer from the Light Attack Helicopter Squadron 369 in recognition of the club’s support of the Squadron over the past year. Members participated in Operation Helo Babies (Virtual Baby Showers), Beach Bash, Potluck in the Barracks, Santa Fly-In and the
awareness about cases of physical abuse and death of African American men at the hands of police in various cities. A long history of racial profiling, abuse and incarceration has left deep scars. This march had nearly concluded peacefully when a single act of cowardice led to the tragic death of five police officers. Social justice should not be elusive in our nation and disagreeing with people should never lead to violence. Achieving balance is our collective responsibility.
Photo l-r: Jean Smithers, Sandy Youngdale, Crystal Gates, Gina Tashjian, and Nikki Smith. Eggstravaganza. In May, CWONC held its 2nd Annual Mother’s Day Tea on Camp Pendleton- one more opportunity for members to let the Marines and their families know that CWONC appreciates what they do for our country. Also known as the world famous “Gunfighters,” they provide worldwide combat ready expeditionary aviation forces and humanitarian operations each year. Visit www.cwonc.org.
The Pastor Says . . .
Pastor Sam Brummit, Mission 316, San Marcos Thoughts About “Failure”
Everyone wants to succeed and nobody consciously sets out to fail. Yet we all experience failure at some point. Someone said, “The only man who never makes a mistake is the man who never does anything.” It’s not a matter of whether we will fail, but HOW we handle failure. In the Bible, great people all fell short, but their failures were tools to help them grow. They often were used AFTER their failure. Here’s a few things to remember when we fail: 1. A failure is not a loss. It’s a gain. You learn. You change. You grow. 2. It is better to fail a thousand times than to never take a risk.
Social Butterfly Cont. on Page 11
3. Past failures don’t have to define our future. Failure is an event, not an identity. 4. When you are near the end of yourself, you may be near the greatest breakthrough. Hang on. 5. If you are reading this, then there is still hope for you. God is not finished with you yet! 6. Even if our circumstances are dire, God can do the impossible. (Think about the empty tomb after a resurrection). In the Bible, 2 Corinthians 12:910 says But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I am weak, then I am strong. Proverbs 24:16 adds “The righteous may fall seven times, but still get up, but the wicked will stumble into trouble”. Join us at Mission 316 Church in San Marcos at 3 Civic Center Drive at 10:00 AM. We welcome you!

Printers and Chromebooks.
One of the things “The Cloud” can’t do (at least not yet) is to hand you an instant hard copy of a document or picture from your PC, smart phone, camera or tablet. That’s why we still have a printers attached to our home or business PCs. Cannon, Epson, HP, Brother, Samsung are the major printer brands. Most home and small businesses use multifunction, color ink jet printers that cost $50 to $100. The printer manufacturers often share manufacturing and supply chains with one another so, from a quality, reliability and customer service perspective, it makes little difference which one you choose to purchase.

Where there's a will, I want to be in it. 2. The last thing I want to do is hurt you. But it's still on my list. 3.

sales, has essentially the same business model and problems as its competitors. Like PCs, printer and supplies sales have been in decline in recent years. Last year HP’s Printer and Supplies Division posted $22 billion in revenue. 65% of that revenue came, not from the sale of printers, but from the sale of “consumables” (basically ink). For decades the formula for the entire industry has been to virtually give away the printers and make money on the ink. Each printer manufacturer sells “branded” ink refills at huge profits. The manufacturers warn users that the use of aftermarket inks will damage the printer and void warranties. That’s nothing more than self serving rubbish. After-market inks at half the price of branded inks are the smart choice and are typically as good as or better than branded inks. When your $50 to $100 all purpose color ink-jet printer acts up, you’re on your own. You can reload the printer driver, call the manufacturer’s help line or research the problem on the internet but it is unlikely that paying for a repair on a sub $100 printer will be a cost effective option. If in doubt, call our buddy Joe Coyle at the Printer Repair Depot (858-356-8256). A few weeks back we talked

about researching some of the Linux based OS (operating systems) like Ubuntu as an alternative to Microsoft Windows for PCs. Since then we’ve taken a good look at “Chromebooks” and decided to drop consideration of the other Linux OS. “Chromebook” with its ever growing library of Chrome and Android applications seems to be more than just an alternative to Windows and Apple, they are a genuine threat. Users that are chained to stand alone (non-Internet) applications represent an ever decreasing percentage of PC users. It seems that the “Chromebooks” are capable of virtually any application including spreadsheets, word processing and photo editing. Since all files
as well as applications can be stored on the Internet, when any software related problem arises you simply run “Powerwash” to reinstall the OS and then download your stuff (files, programs and settings). Imagine virus free Internet surfing with all the applications you need and the ability to correct any PC problem with the push of a button. Imagine never having to worry about losing files or pictures. Imagine being able to turn your PC on or off without having to wait for Microsoft to finish playing mind games with it. Hey Microsoft, do you hear those footsteps behind you?

Residents Generated More Than $100,600 for Feeding America San Diego (FASD) – Recently Walmart announced their “Fight Hunger, Spark Change” campaign called on the public to take action and help fight hunger by sharing campaign messages via social media, donating to local Feeding America food banks in-store at the Walmart register, or purchasing select products from some of the nation’s leading food companies. That effort generated more than $100,600 for Feeding America San Diego to help fight hunger in San Diego County. With one in seven Americans currently struggling with hunger nationally, according to the USDA, hunger is a problem with local implications in every community across the U.S. In San Diego County, more than 400,000 people face hunger, according to Feeding America. FASD is the leading hunger-relief organization in the county, providing 18.5 million meals within the last year, and the only Feeding America affiliate in the region. FASD provides food and resources to a network of 200 distribution partners serving 60,000 children, families and seniors each week. Focused on healthy food, education and advocacy, FASD is building a hunger-free and healthy San Diego County through innovative programs and collaborative partnerships. Visit feedingamericasd.org to learn more about Feeding America San Diego and its hungerrelief initiatives.
