During the 20th century there were a number of automobiles that made a substantial impact upon the American public. While some were short-lived, most auto lovers and collectors of today know well these attempts at automotive legend. For the most part there were two outstanding goals: power and luxury. It’s a Doozie! One of the earliest American racing and luxury automobiles was proThe Paper - 760.747.7119
duced by the Duesenberg Motor Company. The firm was founded in 1913, by brothers August and Frederick Duesenberg in St. Paul, Minnesota, where they built engines and racing cars. In 1916, the brothers moved their operations to Elizabeth, New Jersey to manufacture truck engines during World War I. In 1919, they moved the company to Indianapolis, Indiana, home of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, and established the Duesenberg Automobile & Motor Company.
Duesenberg cars were considered some of the best built of that period and mostly by hand. In 1914, famed World War I aviator Eddie Rickenbacker drove a "Doozie" to finish 10th place in the Indianapolis 500 race. Duesenberg racers won again in 1922, 1924, 1925, and 1927. Although the Duesenberg brothers were world-class, self-taught engineers, they weren’t good businessmen; they were unable to sell all the units of their first passenger car, the “Model A.” This car was ahead of
its time. It had the first U.S. massproduced straight-eight engine. It was an extremely advanced and expensive automobile selling at $6,500 and more. It offered features such as an overhead camshaft, fourvalve cylinder heads, and the first four-wheel hydraulic brakes on a passenger car. The Model A was a lighter and smaller vehicle than any of the luxury competition. It was among the most powerful and the fastest of its time. Among the celebrities who purchased this model were

Model A dealership deliveries did not start until December 1921. Sales lagged and the goal of building 100 Duesenbergs each month proved impossible. The company struggled to turn out one per day. In 1922 no more than 150 cars were manufactured, and over a period of six years only 650 Model A units were built and sold. But each of the handmade cars were classic – a few Model A series still exist in museums or with private collectors. In 1925, after the company was taken over by luxury car builder and businessman Errett Lobban Cord, the new combined company was renamed "Duesenberg, Inc.”
By the time the world-wide Great Depression hit in October 1929, Duesenberg, Inc. had built about 200 cars. An additional 100 orders were filled in 1930. Two of the newer “Model J” series reached the whopping price of $25,000, at a time when the average rich executive earned less than $5,000 a year. A series of minor modifications were carried out, but most of the Model J design remained the same up until Cord closed the factory in 1937. As the Duesenberg design pro-

1. I was in the bathroom, putting on my makeup, under the watchful eyes of my young granddaughter, as I'd done many times before. After I applied my lipstick and started to leave, the little one said, "But Grandma, you forgot to kiss the toilet paper good-bye!" I will probably never put lipstick on again without thinking about kissing the toilet paper good-bye ...
2. My young grandson called the other day to wish me Happy Birthday. He asked me how old I was, and I told him, 72. My grandson was quiet for a moment, and then he asked, "Did you start at 1?"
3. After putting her grandchildren to bed, a grandmother changed into old slacks and a droopy blouse and proceeded to wash her hair. As she heard the children getting more and

gressed, some of its innovations had to be scraped. First to go was the four-speed gearbox. It proved unable to handle the powerful engine. It was replaced by an unsynchronized three-speed gearbox, which was fitted to all subsequent Duesenbergs. Unlike most other American manufacturers, Duesenberg did not switch to a fully synchronized gearbox in the mid-1930s, which made the Model J difficult to drive and outdated. By 1937 the chassis and gearbox were ancient compared to the competition. This rare supercharged Model J version, with 320 horsepower, was created by Fred Duesenberg and introduced in May 1932, but only 36 units were built. Special-bodied models, such as the later "Mormon Meteor" chassis, achieved an average speed of over 135 mph at Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah. The Model J quickly became one of the most popular luxury cars, as well as a status symbol in the U.S. and Europe. The very rich and famous drove the Model J, including Gangster Al Capone, Hollywood notables like Greta Garbo, Howard Hughes, Mae West, Marion Davies, Tyrone Power, Clark Gable, Bill "Bojangles" Robinson, as well as newspaper mogul William Randolph Hearst, the Wrigley and members of European royalty such as Britain’s

more rambunctious, her patience grew thin. Finally, she threw a towel around her head and stormed into their room, putting them back to bed with stern warnings. As she left the room, she heard the three-year-old say with a trembling voice, "Who was THAT?"
4. A grandmother was telling her little granddaughter what her own childhood was like. "We used to skate outside on a pond. I had a swing made from a tire; it hung from a tree in our front yard. We rode our pony. We picked wild raspberries in the woods." The little girl was wide-eyed, taking this all in. At last she said, "I sure wish I'd gotten to know you sooner!" 5. My grandson was visiting one day when he asked, "Grandma, do you know how you and God are alike?" I mentally polished my halo and I said, "No, how are we alike?'' "You're both old," he replied.
6. A little girl was diligently pounding away on her grandfather's word processor. She told him she was writing a story. "What's it about?" he asked.
"I don't know," she replied. "I can't read." 7. I didn't know if my granddaughter had learned her colors yet, so I decided to test her. I would point out something and ask what color it was. She would tell me and was always
Dear Old Mama by Sean Dietrich
I watched one of those TV award shows last night. You know the kind I mean. The award ceremonies where celebrities you’ve never heard of accept accolades for doing stuff you don’t actually care about. There is always that miserable part of the ceremony when the winners say their thank-yous.
My wife and I watched one such winner wave his hood ornament around and read through a prodigious thank-you list that lasted about as long as veterinary school. When he finished, my wife turned to me and said, “He didn’t thank his mama.” I couldn’t believe it.
She was right. Here was a guy on television, winning a major award,
correct. It was fun for me, so I continued. At last, she headed for the door, saying, "Grandma, I really think you should try to figure out some of these colors yourself!"
8. When my grandson Billy and I entered our vacation cabin, we kept the lights off until we were inside to keep from attracting pesky insects. Still, a few fireflies followed us in. Noticing them before I did, Billy whispered, "It's no use Grandpa. Now the mosquitoes are coming after us with flashlights."
9. When my grandson asked me how old I was, I teasingly replied, "I'm not sure."
"Look in your underwear, Grandpa," he advised "Mine says I'm 4 to 6." 10. A second grader came home from school and said to her grandmother, "Grandma, guess what? We learned how to make babies today."
The grandmother, more than a little surprised, tried to keep her cool. "That's interesting." she said. "How do you make babies?"
"It's simple," replied the girl. "You just change 'y' to 'i' and add 'es'."
11. Children's Logic: "Give me a sentence about a public servant," said a teacher. The small boy wrote: "The fireman came down the ladder pregnant." The teacher took the lad aside to cor-
sporting a modern hairstyle that looked like it had been coiffed by electro shock therapy, and he didn’t even mention his mother. None of the other winners did, either. Later that night my wife and I attempted streaming a popular dramatic series. I am told this particular series is popular right now. Known for its “lifelike” authenticity.
In a heated scene that depicted an argument between a teenage daughter and her mother, things got out of control. They threw stuff. Vases shattered. People screamed. Lots of crying. The crescendo came when the daughter started cussing at her mother and called her everything

rect him. "Don't you know what pregnant means?" she asked.
"Sure," said the young boy confidently. 'It means carrying a child."
12. A grandfather was delivering his grandchildren to their home one day when a fire truck zoomed past. Sitting in the front seat of the fire truck was a Dalmatian dog. The children started discussing the dog's duties.
"They use him to keep crowds back," said one child. "No," said another. "He's just for good luck."
A third child brought the argument to a close. “They use the dogs," she said firmly, "to find the fire hydrants." 13. A 6-year-old was asked where his grandma lived. "Oh," he said, "she lives at the airport, and whenever we want her, we just go get her. Then, when we're done having her visit, we take her back to the airport." 14. Grandpa is the smartest man on earth! He teaches me good things, but I don't get to see him enough to get as smart as him! 15.

Olympics Display at Museum Honors Three Local Athletes - As the world celebrates the Olympics Games in Tokyo, the Valley Center History Museum is honoring three local athletes who earned historic Olympics credentials, including a Gold Medal. A photo display at the museum recognizes the accomplishments of Bernie Wrightson, Ray Malott and John Uelses. The remembrance will be on view through the end of the Tokyo Games on August 8. Wrightson, a Valley Center resident, set an Olympics record to win the Gold Medal in springboard diving at the 1968 Summer Games in Mexico City. The previous year, he won the Gold Medal at the PanAmerican Games in Winnipeg. Malott, who died in 2015 at his

By 1929, many New Yorkers flush with stock market money could afford the very expensive Model J. But, as the Depression deepened, power shifted, and it was the wealthy stars of Hollywood that kept Duesenberg alive through much of the 1930s. The car was so reputed and imposing that many Hollywood stars, such as James Cagney, posed next to the car to promote their careers. An example of the company print advertising for the Model J displayed an elegantly dressed man or woman with a Model J and a simple message: "He (She) drives a Duesenberg." By 1937 the market for expensive cars, which had been severely hampered by the Great Depression, Duesenberg manufacturing came to an end. But, as the saying goes, while they were with us, “those automobiles were “Real Doozies!” Duesenberg ceased production in 1937 after Cord's financial empire collapsed. Between 1938 and 1940, the last two “true” Duesenbergs made were assembled from leftover parts.
Uelses, a longtime Valley Center resident, set a world record in 1962 when he became the first person ever to soar above 16 feet in pole vault competition, a feat that won him the cover of Sports Illustrated. He made the qualifying trials for the 1964 Summer Games in Tokyo, but astonished the sports world when he was not selected for the final U.S. team. The History Museum at 29200 Cole Grade Road is open Wednesdays and Fridays from 12 noon to 4 p.m. Admission is free. For more information, visit vchistory.org or call 760-749-2993.

Duesenberg became far less popular during World War II, by the end of which a few Model Js were advertised for around a mere $300 to $400, with some ultimately selling for only $100 or $200. Business rebounded in the 1950s, when classic and vintage cars became popular among collectors. Several Model J series were advertised in the New York Times in the fall of 1950, at prices as low as $500. By 1959 a decent example could not be bought for less than $4,000, and a few could reach a selling price of $10,000. By 1969, the remaining Model J's were selling between $15,000 and $50,000. In April 1974, the first Duesenberg to break six figures was a Model J selling for $205,000. The first Duesenberg to sell in excess of $1 Million was in 1985. Today, a Model J will sell for anywhere from mid-six figures to well into seven figures. Since the turn of the century, one sold for $10 million. Reproduction models were produced between 1978 and 2000 by the Elite Heritage Motors of Elroy, Wisconsin. The five body designs of the original Model J were offered, each copied from an original, looking almost identical. They sold new for up to $225,000, but less than 100 were made. The Graham Brothers

EAA August Open Show & Call for Artists - The Escondido Art Association announces their Open Show for the month of August at the Artists Gallery, 121 W. Grand Avenue, Escondido. The theme for the show is "San Diego's Best,” and will be open to EAA members and non-members alike. Entry fees will apply: Members $20 1st entry, $5.00 ea. 2nd & 3rd; Non-members $30 1st entry, $10.00 ea. 2nd & 3rd.
Take-in of art will be on Saturday, July 31 from 11:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. Joseph B., Robert C., and Ray A., began in 1919 to produce kits to modify the Ford Model T series into trucks. The Graham company's new truck line for 1928 included four four-cylinder models.
In 1927, the Graham brothers decided to enter the automobile business on their own. Their “Graham” series quickly earned a reputation for quality and sales. Initially, Graham withstood the onset of the Great Depression, but sales fell as the decade wore on. The 1932 Graham series with an 8cylinder engine introduced a crankshaft-driven “supercharger.” Through the years, Graham would produce more supercharged cars than any other automobile manufacturer until Buick surpassed them in the 1990s. But the Graham series’ styling became a complete flop in sales. The most reliable estimates have a total production between 6,000 and 13,000 units.
Desperate for a saleable offering in 1939, the Graham brothers made a deal with the ailing Hupp Motor Co. to build cars based on the body dies of the popular “Cord 810” (and “812” series), which the company had acquired in an effort to remain in business. The company lacked the financial resources to build their Hupmobile “Skylark” series, which

And all this has me wondering what’s happened to the image of the American mom? Our culture used to respect Mama. Mama used to be a sacred institution. Mama was everything. Once upon a time, pro football players mentioned their mamas during Super Bowls. On the nightly news, civilians inadvertently caught on camera were required by federal law to wave at the lens like an idiot and yell, “Hi, Mom!” And on ABC prime time, “Family Feud” host, Richard Dawson, could be seen French kissing half the mothers in North America.
Even TV moms were pretty cool back in the day. I remember turning on the tube to see Caroline Ingalls, Claire Huxtable, Carol Brady, Sophia Petrillo, June Cleaver, Lucy Ricardo, or Wilma Flintsone.
Where did they go? And whose bright idea was it to replace them with Kris Jenner and the Kardashians? And here’s something else: You would have never seen Elvis on an

1999 COLD CASE SEXUAL ASSAULT CASE ENDS IN ARREST
On February 17th, 1999, the Escondido Police Department received a call of a kidnapping and rape. The 19-year-old victim stated she was approached about 8:30 PM at the AM-PM Mini-Mart on Grand Avenue south of Rose Street by a male seeking directions to the Super 7 motel in Escondido. She agreed to drive her car and let him follow in his vehicle and she would lead him to the location. In the area of Valley Parkway and Fig Street, the suspect motioned for her to pull over at the parking lot at the northwest corner. She approached his vehicle and the suspect then pulled her into his van. She was driven to another location and sexually assaulted. The suspect then drove her back to her vehicle, released her and fled in his vehicle. At the time of the crime the evidence obtained did not identify a suspect.
Detectives the from Escondido P o l i c e Department did not give up on the case and collaborated with the FBI. DNA obtained from the original crime was resubmitted and led to the suspect’s identification, Mark Thompson Hunter, 64 years old, who currently resides in Hemet,

On July 8th, 2021 an arrest warrant was issued for Mark Hunter for kidnap for rape, forcible rape, forcible sodomy, and three counts of forcible oral copulation. A separate search warrant was obtained for the search of Hunter’s residence and collection of his DNA.
On July 13, 2021 the U.S. Marshal’s San Diego Fugitive Task Force arrested Mark Hunter after he left his residence in Hemet, California. Detectives from the Escondido Police Department and Agents from the F.B.I. served the search warrant on Hunter’s residence. Hunter was transported to the Escondido Police Department for processing and was later booked into Vista Detention Facility for his arrest warrant.

was priced at $895. Only about 300 Skylarks were ever built.
Graham agreed to build the Skylark on a contract basis, while receiving the rights to use the distinctive Cord dies to produce a similar car of its own. It was called the “Cord Hollywood,” which was available with an optional supercharged engine. While some 1,500 Hollywoods were built, it did not stop the company's financial slide. The Graham company suspended manufacturing of the Cord in September 1940, only to soon begin military equipment production for World War II.
The Cord design was re-marketed in 1940, and sold as a Hupmobile. A few sales orders were made after Hupp built a few Cord prototypes, but the company did not have the resources to manufacture the car on a mass basis. The Graham company stepped in and built a combined 1,850 units for 1940 sales, but Hupmobile closed before the 1941 model was introduced. Of those 1,850 Graham-produced cars only about 450 were sold as Hupmobile Skylarks.
The Hupmobile When the War ended in 1945, plans had been announced Graham-Paige would resume production of the Graham series, but that never materialized. Graham's manufacturing facilities were sold to Chrysler, who in turn used the plants first for DeSoto body and engine production, and later for assembly of the Chrysler Imperial. In 1946, the reorganized GrahamPaige company resumed automobile production introducing a modernlooking new luxury car, the 1947 “Frazer,” which was named for Graham-Paige’s president, Joseph Frazer, who later became a partner of industrialist Henry J. Kaiser.
The 1049 Frazer
Today, those of us who are still around to remember the “Cord” and the “Graham” cars sometimes have a hard time telling them apart. The massive business world of Henry J. Kaiser
One of America’s (the world for that matter) most prolific builders and entrepreneurs was Henry John Kaiser. Born May 9, 1882, Kaiser was an American industrialist who, before World War II, owned and operated a large construction com-
Page 5 • • July 22, 2021
In 1914) Kaiser founded a paving company., one of the first to use heavy construction equipment. His firm expanded significantly in 1927 when it received an $18-million contract to build roads in Cuba. In 1931 his firm was one of the prime contractors in building the Hoover Dam on the Colorado River, and subsequently the Bonneville and Grand Coulee Dams on the Columbia River.
During World War II he became known as the father of modern American shipbuilding. After the War, he wore many hats – that of an aluminum and steel manufacturer, automotive producer, builder of planned communities, government buildings, and health care advocate.
While building massive river dams would have been enough to put him in the history books, during the War the industrialist established the Kaiser Shipyards, which built cargo and troop ships. After the War, he formed Kaiser Aluminum and Kaiser Steel, built planned communities on the island of Oahu, Hawaii where he and his wife lived. He later got into television broadcasting, and with his wealth, established the Kaiser Family Foundation, a nonprofit, non-partisan, charitable organization. He organized Kaiser Permanente health care system for his thousands of employees and their families. During World War II, Kaiser adopted revolutionary mass-production shipbuilding techniques such as welding instead of rivets. He fought Germany far more directly with what he is most famous for: the Kaiser Shipyard in Richmond, California. During World War II his ships became known as “Liberty Ships” and were later supplemented in the mid-war period by improved, larger and faster “Victory Ships.” He became world-renowned when his construction teams built a Liberty Ship in just four days. The keel for the 10,500-ton SS Robert E. Peary was laid on Sunday, Nov. 8, 1942, and the completed ship was launched in Richmond on Thursday, Nov. 12, four days and 15½ hours later. The previous record had been 10 days for the Kaiser-built SS Joseph M. Teal.
Other Kaiser shipyards were located in Ryan Point, in Vancouver, Washington state on the Columbia River and on Swan Island in Portland, Oregon. As the War continued, Kaiser-built hulls were converted into the U.S. Navy’s small escort aircraft carriers known “Jeep Carriers.” More than 100 of those carriers were deployed in both the Pacific and the Atlantic Theaters. Many of the ship-building concepts were developed by Kaiser for the mass production of commercial and Naval ships still in use today.
After the War, Kaiser built cars that led the automotive industry with safety designs and economy
unheard of at the time. In August 1945, the month Germany surrendered, ending the War in Europe, the Kaiser-Frazer Corporation was established. The two men got into the automobile business by pooling their massive resources to provide the nation with new cars. Detroit’s Big Three (Ford, General Motors, and Chrysler), were still tooled up to build military vehicles and weapons. By the end of 1946, more than 11,000 Kaiser and Frazer cars went out to dealers and distributors. By the summer of 1948, some 300,000 Kaiser and Frazer cars had come off the production line. In 1950, Kaiser-Frazer began production of a new compact car, the “Henry J,” while ending production of the higher-priced “Frazer.” In 1952 and 1953, Kaiser-Frazer provided Sears, Roebuck and Company with “Allstate” branded automobiles. Sears sold the cars through selected Sears Auto Centers. The Sears cars, based on the “Henry J” models, were advertised in the Sears catalog, but the car was not available by mail order. The “Henry J” also was marketed through Kaiser-Frazer dealerships, with the last units built in late 1953 as the 1954 model year cars. The last Kaisers series were produced in America during the 1955 model year. Some 760,000 automobiles were made, (all makes and models of the corporation), between May 1946 and September 1955.
While sales were initially strong because of a car-starved war-weary public, the company did not have the resources to survive long-term competition against the "Big Three" automakers. The original Kaiser-Frazer design was distinctive and fresh but the company was unable to maintain the price point needed for long-term success. The company's financial and production problems started as early as 1948. Frazer's had warned Kaiser not to tool up for 200,000 cars for the 1949 model year, realizing they could not compete against the new cars from the Big Three. Unfortunately, Kaiser did not heed the warning, saying "The Kaisers never retrench." Only 58,000 cars were sold that year. The Frazer marque was discontinued after the 1951 models. Joseph Frazer remained as a sales consultant and vice-chairman of the Kaiser-Frazer board until 1953. The Kaiser Manufacturing division worked out a deal to purchase certain assets of the Willys-Overland Corporation, makers of Willys cars and military Jeep vehicles.
Kaiser-Frazer also made agreements with General Motors not only to purchase GM’s “Hydramatic” automatic transmissions for its “Kaiser” series, but also had a signed agreement for Oldsmobile engines with deliveries starting in the 1952 model year. That deal was cancelled due to factory expansion restrictions put in place by the federal government during the Korean War.
“Frazer” series cars ended up suffering as a luxury vehicle and was joined by Hudson and Studebaker during the 1950s. Kaiser-Frazer labor agreements resulted in the company paying the highest wages of any American automaker, but only had a productivity rate of 6065 percent in return. U.S. production of Kaiser and Willys passenger cars ceased during the 1955 model year, but production of Willys Jeeps in the company’s Toledo, Ohio plant continued. Kaiser continued his overseas automobile production and the Willys passenger cars were produced in Brazil under the “Willys-Overland” brand well into the 1960s,, using the dies formerly employed in the U.S.
1950 Willys Jeepster
The company changed its name to Kaiser Jeep in 1963. By 1969, Kaiser Industries decided to leave the auto business, which was sold to American Motors Corporation (AMC) in 1970. As part of the transaction, Kaiser acquired a 22 percent interest in AMC, which still operates today and is best known as the manufacturer of the military “Humvee” and civilian “Hummer heavy-duty vehicles.” In his later years, Kaiser founded the Honolulu suburban community of Hawaiʻi Kai on Oahu. Kaiser also financed the development of Panorama City, a planned community in the San Fernando Valley portion of Los Angeles.
Kaiser built the Hilton Hawaiian Village in Waikiki, then eventually developed a chain of radio and television stations which became known as Kaiser Broadcasting. Kaiser died at the age of 85 in Honolulu on Aug. 24, 1967. Today, the name “Kaiser” lives on with the gigantic Kaiser Permanente Hospitalization Insurance organization. And, those less-than attractive Kaiser, Fraser, and Henry J automobiles can be found on the streets and highways, but seldom seen. Mr. Tucker and his dream car of tomorrow
Preston Tucker was a visionary – some called him a dreamer, but he developed and produced a revolutionary car that introduced many features since have been widely adapted for today’s cars. He was born Sept. 21, 1903, and is most remembered for his 1948 futuristic sedan, initially nicknamed the "Tucker Torpedo."
Tucker grew up near Detroit and was obsessed with automobiles from an early age. During World War II, Tucker became associated
Men and Dream Autos Continued on Page 6
Men and Dream Autos Cont. from Page 5
with Andrew Jackson Higgins, builder of the U.S. Navy’s cargo and troop ships, as well as lightweight PT (torpedo patrol) boats and Higgins assault landing craft. Tucker moved to New Orleans, Louisiana, to serve as a vice-president of Higgins Industries. Tucker was specifically in charge of the Higgins-Tucker Aviation division. This entity produced aircraft gun turrets, armament, and engines for the Higgins' PT boats.
After the war, the public was ready for totally new car designs, but the Big Three Detroit automakers had not developed any new models since 1941, and none were in a hurry to introduce them. That provided great opportunities for rapid production by independent automakers like Preston Tucker and Henry J. Kaiser. Tucker's first design appeared in Science Illustrated magazine in December 1946, showing a futuristic version of the car with a hydraulic drive system. The motoring public became excited about
the Tucker. But, in 1949, production of the Tucker '48 was shut down amidst scandal and controversial accusations of stock fraud. The 1988 movie Tucker: The Man and His Dream, starring Jeff Bridges, is based on Tucker's life surrounding the car's production.
Tucker's specifications for his revolutionary car called for a rear engine, a low-RPM 589 cubic inch engine with hydraulic valves insteadof a camshaft, fuel injection, direct-drive torque converters on each rear wheel (instead of a transmission), disc brakes, the location of all instruments within the diameter and reach of the steering wheel, a padded dashboard, and self-sealing tubeless tires.
Also, the design had independent springless suspension, a chassis that protected occupants in a side impact, a roll bar within the roof, a laminated windshield designed to pop out during an accident, and a center "cyclops" headlight which would turn when steering at angles greater than 10 degrees in order to improve visibility around corners during night driving. All of these developments were years ahead of their time. Having run out of time to develop the 589-cubic-inch engine, Tucker settled on a modified aircraft engine. There’s more than a little evidence the Big Three became alarmed at Tucker’s progress. The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) was embittered
after small automaker Henry J. Kaiser was given millions of dollars in grants towards development of his new Kaiser and Fraizer cars, but reportedly squandered the money. While Tucker took no money from the federal government, SEC kept him under close scrutiny.
An SEC trial began on Oct. 4, 1949, and the factory was closed on the very same day. At that point, only 38 Tucker '48s had been built. A corps of 300 loyal employees returned to the factory (some without pay) and finished assembly of another 13 cars for a total of 51 cars. The SEC contended Tucker never intended to produce a car. Throughout the trial, the SEC report on Tucker was classified as "secret" and even though his attorneys were never allowed to view or read it, it was leaked to the press. The prosecution and defense continued debating until the judge demanded the SEC prosecutors "get down to the meat of the case and start proving the conspiracy charge."
Tucker's defense attorneys surprised everyone by refusing to call any witnesses. Defense attorney Daniel Glasser told the court, "It is impossible to present a defense when there has been no offense." Kirby invited the jury to take a ride in one of the eight Tucker '48s parked in front of the courthouse. The verdict came in "not guilty" on all counts. Despite the outcome of the trial, speculation was whether Tucker genuinely intended to produce a new car and bring it to market, or whether the entire enterprise was a sham. The Tucker Automobile Club of America has amassed more than 400,000 drawings/blueprints, corporate documents, and letters suggesting Tucker was, in fact, planning to mass-produce the Tucker '48. He had hired more than 1,900 employees. Preston Tucker's reputation rebounded after the acquittal. His optimism was remarkable; after the trial was over, he was quoted as saying, "Even Henry Ford failed the first time out." But it was not to be. Tucker’s assets were auctioned off publicly, but two remaining Tucker cars were given to Tucker, and his mother. He died of lung cancer on Dec. 26, 1956, at the age of 53.
Today, entrepreneur Elon Musk, builder of the electric-powered “Tesla,” no doubt understands much of the turmoil Preston Tucker had to endure. In summary, this by no means is the entire history of the automotive development in America, but it includes a big part. There were other vehicles introduced early in

Broadband Internet for Unserved Rural Areas
Access to the internet has become a critical part of everyday life, something many Californians take for granted. But usable broadband service has been unavailable for many. Over 670,000 Californians do not have access to a high-speed broadband connection, including 30% of rural households and 24% of homes located on tribal lands. My district is one of those. That’s why my caucus and I have long supported efforts to close the digital divide statewide.
I’m happy to report that SB 156, to fund a statewide broadband network included in the 2021-22 budget, received final legislative approval on July 15th. Total funding for the project includes $3.25 Billion to establish a statewide open-access middle-mile network (broadband main line) and $1.072 billion to fund the last-mile connections (local connectivity) for unserved communities. Though I’d prefer more funding for last-mile connections, the emphasis will be on locations where those connections can be enabled with sufficient capacity at affordable rates. It’s a big step in the right direction. As we all know here locally, service in some areas can be very spotty. This lack of connectivity can make
the difference when it comes to working, getting an education, seeing a doctor or simply staying connected with family and friends. SB 156 prioritizes locations that include schools, community colleges, healthcare institutions, libraries and other government facilities. Among its many benefits, it will improve education opportunities for many rural students currently deprived of opportunities readily available elsewhere.
Due to a unique combination of circumstances, including the one-time availability of federal funding, we will now be able to expand broadband infrastructure throughout California. SB 156 passed the Senate and Assembly, without opposition, and is awaiting the Governor’s signature. There is more work to be done in this area, but at least we are about to close the digital divide that has impacted millions of Californians. 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.

Parents Should Decide
Last week, the State of California Department of Public Health released new guidance stating the mandate will continue for all students in California to wear masks for in-person schooling. This came the same day the Federal government (Center for Disease Control) released new guidelines saying vaccinated students and teachers no longer need to wear masks in the classrooms. Throughout the pandemic, we’ve heard ‘follow the science’, but now the State has decided to not follow the science.
San Diego County has done an excellent job protecting our most vulnerable. Our Public Health officials have poured their energy into caring for our most vulnerable and protecting those with potential to experience significant effects caused by this virus. Thankfully, the virus does not cause significant or severe effects for children. As awful as the last year has been, it could have been even worse if our young people suffered the way our most vulnerable have. Life is about weighing and managing risks, and I believe we aren’t managing them correctly. There has been a 24 percent increase in suicides among California teenagers, with 134
deaths in the last 12 months. We need to weigh all the risks to keeping kids out of school and forcing them to wear masks.
Adults are supposed to sacrifice to protect kids, we no longer need these actions for kids in order to protect adults. especially when there is a vaccine widely available to protect all vulnerable adults. The California Department of Public Health has now backtracked saying, “California’s school guidance will be clarified regarding masking enforcement, recognizing local schools’ experience in keeping students and educators safe while ensuring schools fully reopen for in-person instruction.” The fight will continue, but in this time of division, let’s come to this agreement, for our kids. At this point in the COVID-19 response it’s simple: Parents should decide if masks are right for their kids. To contact North County Office – by appointment only 325 S.

PROBLEM SOLVED BY CHRISTOPHER ELLIOTT
Q: I recently ordered a medical product from Groupon for $99. The next day, Groupon billed my credit card twice for $99. I never got the product. I've spoken with Groupon. Instead of sending me a refund, they are offering a Groupon credit. I feel like I'm getting the runaround from Groupon and that they have no intention of sending me the product. I want my money back. Can you help me? -- Sherry Tedeschi, Beverly Hills, Calif.
A: Your case isn't as simple as it looks. You say you placed one order for the medical product, but Groupon's records suggest you clicked the "buy" button twice. Hence the double charge. But you should have received two products. Instead, you got nothing. There's no disputing that.
Speaking of disputes, you left out the fact that you initiated a credit card dispute on this purchase. Groupon furnished your card issuer with the evidence that you had made two purchases, and the bank erroneously sided with Groupon.
That complicated matters. A credit card dispute is typically your last option for resolving a consumer dispute before you head to court. And you were not about to initiate legal action over two $99 charges. So this was pretty much the end of the road for you.
I would have tried contacting a Groupon executive before filing a dispute on your card. I list the names, numbers and email addresses of <a href="https://www.elliott.org/company-contacts/groupon-customerservice-contacts/">Groupon's customer service managers</a> on my consumer advocacy site, Elliott.org. There's a lot of correspondence between you, your credit card company and Groupon. But you're right: Things kept going around and around. Groupon wanted to offer you vouchers, called Groupon Bucks, for the items you didn't receive, and you just wanted a refund. I agree with you. If Groupon couldn't send you the item you ordered, it owed you a refund. So I contacted Groupon on your behalf.
"We understand Sherry’s frustration with the Groupon Bucks refund we originally offered her," a Groupon spokesman responded. "We’ve issued her refunds for both purchases to her original form of payment." What led to this misunderstanding? Groupon says the pandemic created challenges connecting customers with merchants. "We're doing our best -- in light of the unprecedented number of can-

.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. 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

Historically Speaking by Tom Morrow
Pioneers of the World’s ‘Bread Basket’
Everyone should know that John Deere and Cyrus McCormick were primarily responsible for plowing the soil and harvesting food for America and eventually the world.
Today, Deere’s name lives on labeling mowers, tractors and a variety of other farm implem e n t s . McCormick’s name b e c a m e International Harvester. Together, John Deere these two men were of primary importance in providing American farmers revolutionary tools that fed the “Bread Basket of the World.” Deere, born Feb. 7, 1804, was an American blacksmith and manufacturer who founded the Deere & C o m p a n y ; McCormick ended Cyrus up being the father McCormick of I-H. Together they became two of the world’s leading agricultural and construction equipment inventors, developers and manufacturers.
In 1837, Deere moved to Illinois where he invented, designed and manufactured the first commercially successful “steel” plow. About that same time, McCormick settled in Illinois where he further developed his “reaping” machine. Deere worked in Vermont before settling in Illinois. He found that castiron plows of that day were not working very well in cutting through the tough prairie soil. Deere came to the conclusion a plow made out of highly polished steel and a correctly shaped moldboard better handled the soil conditions of the vast prairie, especially its sticky clay. It allowed farmers to double and triple their crop production with relative ease.
McCormick, born five years after Deere, on Feb. 15, 1809, in Virginia, developed the mechanical reaper for harvesting grain. It relieved farmers from vast amounts of hand-labor, quadrupling their production. Like Deere, McCormick ended up being an Illinois industrialist and inventor who went on to develop a variety of harvesting tools. In 1831, using the working model developed by his father and the research done by others, McCormick set about developing his mechanical reaper. He built, tested and demonstrated it within a span of 18 months. Sales were slow for the first few years because of the farmer’s skepticism against mechanical machinery. McCormick sold only a few for the
first years, but he kept on improving his invention. In 1834, he received a patent for the reaper design. He had to overcome the farmers’ suspicion of mechanical equipment. As his machine’s reputation among farmers became better known, orders picked up. In 1837, Deere developed and manufactured the first commercially successful cast-steel plow. The wroughtiron, framed plow had a polished steel blade. It was ideal for turning the tough Midwestern soil, far surpassing other plows of the day. By early 1838, Deere’s steel plow had farmers passing the word about its labor-saving success. By 1841, Deere was manufacturing 75 to 100 plows per year.
The two revolutionary inventors ended up moving their respective operations to Illinois, the heart of America’s farm land. Deere moved to Moline, Illinois, because it was a key transportation hub on the Mississippi River. By 1855, Deere had sold more than 10,000 plows. The tool became known as "The Plow that Broke the Plains."
McCormick also moved to Illinois, but his factory was destroyed in the Chicago Fire of 1871. He quickly rebuilt with increased capacity and eventually expanded equipment sales to Europe.
Later in life, Deere became active in civil and political affairs. He served as President of the National Bank of Moline, a director of the Moline Free Public Library, and was a trustee of the First Congregational Church. Deere also served as Moline's mayor for two years. By 1857 McCormick was turning out 23,000 reapers a year. He bought other agricultural patents and companies, expanding his empire to sell mowers, harvesters, and other farming implements around the world. Deere died at home on May 17, 1886 at the age of 82; McCormick died May 13, 1884 at the age of 75. Together, they revolutionized world food production. When this writer grew up in southern Iowa, to remain in the Hawkeye state, a young person had three primary choices: farming, the military, or go and work constructing farm implements in the Mississippi metropolis of the “Tri Cities,” Moline and Rock Island, Illinois or Davenport, Iowa. Thousands of Midwestern men and women have built careers that started with John Deere and Cyrus McCormick. Those careers have equipped millions of farmers whose food production now feeds the world.
HISTORICALLY SPEAKING – Recently we witnessed the birth of commercial space travel. The flight of the Virgin Galactica taking off and landing like a standard aircraft, reached some 50 miles into outer space. It was a small step toward the possibility of gliding from one airport to another, exceeding flight and speed records of the supersonic Concorde. While last week’s space craft returned to earth landing like a standard aircraft, it proved future flights will climb up, then glide from the darkness of space, returning to earth, landing at airports around the world. It’ll be the “E” ticket of the future.

The other day I went up to our local Christian book store and saw a 'Honk if you love Jesus' bumper sticker. I was feeling particularly sassy that day because I had just come from a thrilling choir performance, followed by a thunderous prayer meeting.. So, I bought the sticker and put it on my bumper. Boy, am I glad I did; what an uplifting experience that followed.
I was stopped at a red light, just lost in thought about the Lord and how good he is, and I didn't notice that the light had changed. It is a good thing someone else loves Jesus because if he hadn't honked, I'd never have noticed.
The guy behind started honking like crazy, and then he leaned out of his window and screamed, 'For the love of God!' 'Go! Go! Go! Jesus Christ, GO!' What an exuberant cheerleader he was for Jesus!
I just leaned out my window and started waving and smiling at all those loving people. I even honked my horn a few times to share in the love! There must have been a man from Florida back there because I heard him yelling something about a sunny beach.

Bike the Bay Invites the Community to Bike In-Person on August 22nd - The San Diego Bike Coalition’s annual bike event, Bike the Bay, returns for its 14th year. On August 22, participants are invited to join the Bike Coalition and co-host Love to Ride on a 25mile bike ride through five cities along the Bayshore Bikeway. Since 2007, Bike the Bay has attracted thousands of cyclists from around the country by providing a familyfriendly space for enjoying the outdoors on two wheels. This year, the group hopes to make the space
more inclusive to groups often left out of conversations about cycling, such as BIPOC and LGBTQIA+ communities.
Due to COVID-19, last year’s Bike the Bay was held virtually. This year, the event will be held in person once more. Participants will be able to both cycle along the route as well as enjoy vendors and food trucks around the finish line at Embarcadero Marina Park South. Bike the Bay supports the San Diego County Bike Coalition’s mission of advocating for and protecting the rights of all people on bikes from Imperial Beach to Oceanside. The annual event brings cyclists together to share in the joy of riding during a familyfriendly ride. “Bike the Bay has become a San Diego staple, and we want everyone to know that this ride is for them. Though we missed being able to connect with our friends and community last year, we’re looking forward to making 2021 our biggest Bike the Bay event yet,” said Andy Hanshaw, Executive Director of the San Diego County Bike Coalition.
Escondido • Mayor Paul “Mac” McNamara Greetings Escondido,
This column may be a little boring as well, but it is about something a lot of folks are concerned about. And that is roads. This information had to be in two parts. This is part two.
The City’s annual Street Maintenance program focuses residential street resurfacing in one of eight geographical maintenance zones each year. The zones are treated in order of overall condition with the lowest overall condition treated first. By using this approach, we can maximize efficiency and benefit from economy of scale. In fact, we have beaten pavement condition model projections with the nine point PCI increase and $5-million per year investment in our streets. This is due in large part to optimizing treatment strategies that are designed to extend the life of the pavement in the most efficient manner. Currently, sidewalk maintenance activities are occurring in the North-West zone, the area north of SR78 and west of Broadway, in the Escondido Hills neighborhood, which will be followed by street resurfacing later this year. Next year, we will be focusing on the East-North neighborhood bounded by Ash, Lincoln and East Valley Parkway. Stay informed, Be Kind, Remember your neighbor, and Stay safe! Semper Fi, Mac Paul P. McNamara Mayor of Escondido firstname.lastname@example.org

Costco Business Center to take over Fry’s San Marcos location?
That’s the rumor on the street but we’ve not been able to verify it.
Even though it was obvious that Fry’s had been circling the drain for the last couple of years, it was still a shock to see them go out of business overnight early this year. It had long been obvious that Fry’s business model had run its course and they were no longer relevant. Fry’s Electronics opened in Sunnyvale in 1985 catering mainly to computer hobbyists. Marked by mega stores and massive inventories, Fry’s continued to grow and by 2012 had 34 stores in nine states. For PC hobbyists and “do it yourself” computer geeks, Fry’s was a great place to buy components for repair, upgrade and building computer systems. Fry’s low
Page 12 • • July 22, 2021
wage scale and high turnover rate prevented them from ever being a go-to place for technical expertise or advice, but Fry’s was a Mecca for computer savvy geeks and gamers. As PCs became more a common tool and less a hobby product, Fry’s began to falter. Power users and “gamers” increasingly turned to Internet sources like Amazon and Ebay for components. Fry’s finally “threw in the towel” on February 24th 2021 closing all 34 locations. Fry’s moved in across the street from us eighteen years ago and significantly helped our business by increasing computer buyer foot traffic on the blvd. Like most computer stores at that time, we felt obliged to sell PC components (hard drives, RAM, CPUs, sound and video cards motherboards etc) and peripherals (monitors, printers, keyboards, mice etc). Selling low margin commodity products over the counter was never a major part of our business but it was expected and all the other computer stores did it so we felt we had to do it too. It was a royal pain in the ass. The “do it yourself” crowd were fine folks but they often bought the wrong part or found out that the part they bought didn’t fix what was wrong with their computer. Nearly 50% of component purchases by “do it yourself” folks wound up being returned for refund, credit or a swap. Since we had to test returns before reselling them, like nearly everyone else, charged a 15% restocking fee. While most customers understood the restock charge, some grumbled about it. It made us uncomfortable. When Fry’s opened right across the
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.
street we were able to refer “do it yourself” folks to them and stay focused on service. Like auto shops, we sell components as part of repair, upgrade or a new build but not over the counter. Instantly our customer returns stopped while Fry’s was always inundated with them.
We miss having Fry’s across the street as they did provide a handy emergency parts source. Since Fry’s closed, we get several calls each
Notable filigree pens were first made around 1897. The Waterman Company made some of the first filigrees, but the metal was generally so soft that the pens did not wear well. Designs were usually based on floral or leaf patterns. Parker and Conklin filigree pens soon make 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.

New Reader Fans, Caroline Douglas and friends, Escondido and Valley Center, Calif. Didn’t Care for the Cover Story
With a title like "The Gunned-Down Gunfighter" all of us grabbed copies of The Paper. Then headed to an outdoor bistro to sit, have a cool one, and read and share our thoughts on the cover story. Our excitement turned sour.
We all said the same thing. The story should've been corralled for inside not the cover! We had higher expectations. Also, from the title we all expected a real adventure into the real Wild West! But as one feller in our group described it, "We all got on what we thought was the right train ride, but it just took us all to the wrong place."
I’'m a Newbie in sending Letters to the Editor, and most of your past covers were first-class adventures with shocking new facts (with humor thrown in for good measure). Sometimes disappointment hurts us readers more than pain. Especially with a cover title like that which just didn't deliver.
