Editor’s Note: Friedrich Gomez wanted to dedicate this week’s cover story to Pete De Jong, who passed away on Wednesday, July 15h, here in Escondido. Mr. Gomez, like so many of us, greatly admires the De Jong family and was saddened to hear of Pete’s passing.
According to countless JewishAmerican comedians: “You know you’re Jewish because you’re as tall as your grandmother by the age of seven! And as tall as your grandfaThe Paper - 760.747.7119
ther by 7 ½. Yes, you’re Jewish! Because you have at least six male relatives named David, and also because you thought yelling was normal!”
The aforementioned statements are a staple of many Jewish comedians’ arsenal of jokes, a funny commentary that is almost a requirement in their bag of humor.
Jewish comedians, worldwide, have long poked fun of their own cultural roots – longer than can be remembered. More often than not, the
recurring humorous theme has long been: “You know you’re Jewish if . . .” and then the litmus test begins with an assortment of comical queries. According to Jewish-American comedian, Billy Crystal: “You know you’re Jewish because your dog responds to Yiddish! Yes, Yiddish, which is a language with a cough and a spit. Until I was 15, I lived in a raincoat!”
For Billy Crystal, he’s just warming up in the bull pen: “You know you’re Jewish because your mother is

always feeding you! Her first words over the phone are always, ‘Are you eating enough?’ Until I was 12, I thought my name was ‘taste this.’ As kids, when we would sneeze, gravy would come out of our noses!” (“Mr. Saturday Night,” Castle Rock Entertainment video, 1992.) Food and close ‘mothering’ have long been a stereotypical truism within the Jewish upbringing, inculcating traits and bonding from infancy onward to adulthood. As a standard, time-worn cliché has

it among Jewish comics: “You know Jesus was Jewish because he was over 30 years old and he still lived at home.” The Jewish perception of life and its attached responsibilities is sometimes reflected in their humor, such as this classic Jewish anecdote: Priest: “Life begins at conception.” Reverend: “Life begins at birth.” Rabbi: “Life begins when the kids leave home.”
Jewish humor often reflects back on its own ancient, cultural roots, its trials, sufferings, and the task of dealing with stereotypes – many stereotypes they do not deny, but embrace. It appears that one has to be Jewish – or strongly identify with Jewish culture – to genuinely have empathy and insight into the ‘what-and-why’ of their humor. All of which makes for a fascinating study.
According to both Jewish and nonJewish scholars: “Jewish humour is the long tradition of humour in Judaism, dating back to the Torah and the Midrash from the ancient Middle East.”
Impressive, indeed, for this would grant modern Jewish humor a lineage of well over 4,000 years (of recorded history). Most scholars say a lot longer than that, predating the written

A nun walks into Mother Superior's office and plunks down into a chair. She lets out a sigh, heavy with frustration. 'What troubles you, Sister?' asked the Mother Superior. 'I thought this was the day you spent with your family.'
'It was,' sighed the Sister. 'And I went to play golf with my brother. We try to play golf as often as we can. You know I was quite a talented golfer before I devoted my life to Christ.'
'I seem to recall that,' the Mother Superior agreed. 'So I take it your day of recreation was not relaxing?' 'Far from it,' snorted the Sister. 'In

According to one of the foremost experts on Jewish culture and humor, esteemed scholar and researcher, Rabbi Moshe Waldoks, the rules and the laws of the ancient Talmud, for example, were viewed by many Israelites as being so strict and so overly-elaborate as to be “absurd and ridiculous to the point of being comical.” This viewpoint continues today with this humorous Jewish commentary which pokes fun at overly-zealous Hebrew law: Question: “Is one permitted to ride in an airplane on the Sabbath?” Answer: “Yes, as long as your seat belt remains fastened. In this case, it is considered that you are not riding, you are ‘wearing’ the plane.”
If you find the above anecdote particularly funny – well, you might be Jewish, so say many Jewish standup comedians, tongue-in-cheek. Rabbi Moshe Waldoks goes on to say that research reveals how the Jewish culture uses humor to poke fun at their own Hebraic laws, as well as making light of prominent people who may think of themselves as highly-important. According to Rabbi Waldoks, Jews enjoy deflating the over-blown egos of people who puff themselves up and who exaggerate their own self-importance.
Israeli scholar, Hillel Halkin, also makes clear in his researched essays that the Jewish people are not afraid to poke fun at themselves as well as
fact, I even took the Lord's name in vain today!'
'Goodness, Sister!' gasped the Mother Superior, astonished. 'You must tell me all about it!'
'Well, we were on the fifth tee...and this hole is a monster, Mother. A 540-yard, Par 5, with a nasty dogleg to the right and a hidden green... I hit the drive of my life. I creamed it. The sweetest swing I ever made. And it's flying straight and true, right along the line I wanted...but it hits a bird in midflight!' 'Oh my!' commiserated the Mother. 'How unfortunate! But surely that didn't make you blaspheme, Sister!' ' No, that wasn't it,' admitted Sister.
'While I was still trying to fathom what had happened, this squirrel runs out of the woods, grabs my ball and runs off down the fairway!' Oh, that would have made me blaspheme!' sympathized the Mother.
'But I didn't, Mother!' sobbed the Sister. 'And I was so proud of myself! And while I was pondering whether this was a sign from God, this hawk swoops out of the sky and grabs the squirrel and flies off, with my ball still clutched in his paws!' 'So that's when you cursed,' said the
their own customs and bylaws. In fact, they often revel in it to the extent that it has long been a humorous pastime. According to Halkin, Jews often mock their own negative stereotypes. For example, the Jewish people, traditionally, love to “kvetch” (Yiddish for “complain”), even for no apparent reason. Complaining is seen as an enjoyable, inextricable part of the Jewish nature, which they love to joke about, as in the following amusing Jewish anecdote: “An old Jewish man riding on a train begins to complain: ‘Oy, am I thirsty. Oy, am I thirsty.’ This complaining continues to the point where it begins to annoy the other non-Jewish passengers. Finally, an angry Gentile passenger brings a cup of water to the old Jewish man in order to keep him quiet. The Jewish man profusely thanks the man and gulps the water down. With all the other passengers finally feeling satisfied and no longer annoyed, they now begin to hear the old Jewish man repeat over-and-over again, ‘But, oy, was I thirsty! Oy, I’m telling you, was I thirsty!’” Once again, to non-Jewish ears, the commentary of the thirsty man may not seem funny at all to Gentiles. However, if it elicits a hearty laugh well, then, you just might be Jewish, literally or figuratively speaking, as many Jewish comics laughingly assert.
Jewish comedians insist that one has to first realize (and understand) that an inherent funny trait amongst Jewish people is their traditional enjoyment of – just complaining.
Mother with a knowing smile.
'No, that wasn't it either,' cried the Sister, anguished, 'because as the hawk started to fly out of sight, the squirrel started struggling, and the hawk dropped him right there on the green, and the ball popped out of his paws and rolled to about 18 inches from the cup!'
Mother Superior sat back in her chair, folded her arms across her chest, fixed the Sister with a baleful stare and said...'You missed the friggin’ putt, didn't you?” •••• I decided to go on a road trip and not come back until I ran out of money.

Jewish comedian and film producer, Woody Allen, was famous for his characters complaining for no reason than to just complain. In his 1977 comedy film, “Annie Hall,” Woody Allen tells a Jewish joke which he feels summarizes Jewish life and the need to complain: “Two elderly women are in a Catskills mountain resort and one of them says, ‘Boy, the food at this place is really terrible!’ The other woman says, ‘Yeah, I know, and such small portions.’” Allen explains the joke that Jews will complain about small portions, even if the food is terrible and they don’t want more of it. The joke plays more to the Jewish sector, while Gentiles – in general – might see it as mildly funny -- if funny at all. The simple need to complain, even without sound reason or rhyme, can be enormously funny in a Jewish comedian’s routine in front of a predominantly Jewish audience. For Gentiles, this type of humor does not particularly play well.
The word ‘complain,’ in Yiddish is called “kvetch,” complaining is called “kvetching.” The inculcated need to complain in the Semitic culture is captured in yet another classic Jewish joke of a Jewish man in a hospital who wants to be transferred to a different hospital: Doctor: “What’s wrong Rosenburg? Is it the food?”

no shortage of private homes in Valley Center and Pauma Valley that would qualify for that description, local historians and those few who have seen the residence agree this one is spectacular. This story is installment number 14 in the series which appears weekly while the History Museum is closed. All data is from the archives of the Valley Center Historical Society.

The Day the Judges Met at a Valley Center Home - When competing architects met to present their designs for the new Mediterranean-style Escondido City Hall-Civic Center complex in 1984, they and the judges gathered not in Escondido but at a private residence in Valley Center that had been described as stunning, majestic and a visual feast. It had been named "House of the Year" by a regional magazine and was selected for the cover of a book on "extraordinary" residences.
It is that home that is spotlighted in this week's question-and-answer column from the Valley Center History Museum, and is in response to multiple inquiries to identify the most remarkable and dramatic residence in the region. While there is

Jewish Patient: “No, the food is fine. I can’t complain.” Doctor: “Is it the room?” Patient: “No, the room is fine. I can’t complain.” Doctor: “Is it the staff?” Patient: “No, everyone on the staff is fine. I can’t complain.” Doctor: “Then, why do you want to be transferred?” Patient: “I can’t complain.” As Jewish comedians are quick to point out, if you need to complain – even without good reason – then, you might be Jewish.
Jewish-American political commentator, comedian, and TV host, Jon Stewart, loves joking about this cultural aspect of Jewish complaining, comparing it – humorously – to the Black culture: “Black people have blues music, while Jews complain. We (Jews) just never thought about putting it to music.”
History’s greatest and most famous psychoanalyst, the mighty Sigmund Freud (1856-1939) even found Jewish humor to be worthy of study. The Jewish founder of psychoanalysis analyzed the nature of Jewish humor in his, “Jokes and Their Relation to the Unconscious” (first published in 1905). So fascinated was Freud that he published another treatise on Jewish humor in the 1928 journal, Humor. Freud found Jewish humor to be intrepid (unafraid) of
Set among 400 acres in a private gated development, the 3,800square foot home where the judges met was designed by celebrated modernist Norman Applebaum who has been called "an architect's architect." He was given a fivepage list of requirements by the property's new owner, newspaper publisher Carlton Appleby, owner of the former Escondido TimesAdvocate, later renamed North County Times.
In selecting the residence "Home of the Week," the Los Angeles Times called it a "gem," echoing the applause from San Diego Home & poking fun at its own people, customs, and belief-systems: “Jewish humor is unique in that its humor is primarily derived from mocking (making fun) of the in-group (Jews) rather than other cultures or people.” The fact that Jewish people often turn their comedy inward, rather than outward, reveals how they do not hesitate in poking fun at even their own stereotypes. This continues to this day. This Jewish joke pokes fun at their own culture’s reputation for being overly frugal (cheap): “Did you hear they built the first Starbucks in our native Israel? There’s a fork, instead of a spoon, in the sugar bowl.”
When black entertainer, Sammy Davis, Jr. converted to Judaism, Jewish standup comics had a field day: “Mr. Davis, it’s been one year since you became a Jew. You are now due to come in for your booster shot.” This served as another hilarious example of Jewish fearlessness in turning their razor-sharp witticism ‘inward’ as cultural researcher point out.
Far more amazing is the fact that Jewish humor emerged as a flower out of non-fertile soil. How the Jewish sense of humor prevails today and yet traces its roots to the blackest hours of human existence and unspeakable horror is nothing short of incredulous. How is this possible?
It seems the most unlikeliest of sce-
Garden which selected it as "Home of the Year." In 2009, the lavish coffee table book "Extraordinary Homes California" used the Appleby/Applebaum residence for its cover, calling it "a visual feast" and "stunning."
One of the judges, dean of a noted art institute, proclaimed he was in "awe" before entering the house, walking across a bridge over a koi pond which led to a 9-foot-high leaded-glass front door which itself was once featured on the cover of a magazine. Inside, there were soaring walls of glass framed in Douglas fir capturing views of lush greenery and rocky hillsides, a library with a wall of shelves rising nearly two stories, and a massive brick fireplace where firewood was stacked 10 feet high. When Carlton Appleby and his wife Eileen moved into the house in 1982, they became members of the Friends of the Valley Center Library, likely at the urging of their neighbor, Sterling Dorman, one of the original Valley Center historians, whose own remarkable adobe home hosted many library and early local history events. When the Appleby home last sold to an entrepreneur in 2012 it was surrounded by 106 pastoral acres. The property and photos of the dra-
narios -- that the end-result of thousands of years of unrelenting persecution, torture, slavery, agonizing death from generation upon generation, and even the unspeakable attempts to rid the world completely of Jews through genocide -- the Holocaust -- is hardly the breeding ground for humor. Yet, today, Jewish humor and standup comedians dominate the world of laughter as no other ethnic group. There is no close second. No other cultural group is even a blip on the radar that compares with the Jewish legacy of comedy.
In 1978, TIME magazine estimated that 80% of successful, professional American comics were Jewish. Over 40 centuries of grisly persecution could easily have erased any remnant or speck of optimism and positive outlook in Jewish life and, yet, it has given forth the world’s greatest practitioners and purveyors of laughter, happiness, goodwill, and optimism. How this came to be, is beyond the scope of human comprehension.
The Jewish resiliency of overcoming great and terrifying ordeals is, perhaps, their saving grace that is found in their mysterious power of humor. The great Jewish literary giant, Saul Bellow (1915-2005), winner of both the Pulitzer Prize and Nobel Prize for his extraordinary literary achievements, wrote that: “Oppressed people (such as the Jews) tend to be witty.”

ing them to overcome seemingly impossible odds which, in turn, allows them to tweak their noses at their fallen adversaries. When asked to give a short, overview of Jewish history, legendary Jewish-American comic, Alan King (1927-2004) simply said: “A short summary of every Jewish holiday – They tried to kill us; we won; let’s eat!”
That eating is a comforting, central point in Semitic life cannot be overly exaggerated. As Jewish-American comic great, Jackie Mason, says: “It’s easy to tell the difference between Jews and Gentiles. After a show, all the Gentiles are saying, ‘Have a drink? Want a drink? Let’s have a drink!’ While all the Jews are saying ‘Have you eaten yet? Want a piece of cake? Let’s have some cake!’” As Jack Mason implies, if you’d rather eat after a Broadway play instead of drinking an alcoholic beverage with friends at a familiar watering hole, well, you just might be Jewish after all.
It also remains a fascinating study that Jewish humor today does not attempt to rid itself of all stereotyping, such as the Jewish culture’s apparent preoccupation with the importance of food in their lives: “You may be Jewish if you have a spiritual connection with your neighborhood deli.” Or this popular Jewish expression: “You know you

It was designed to keep kids so busy enjoying life they would have neither the time nor inclination to join gangs. It was a brilliant success.

If you join both food and complaining together, you have a short description of Jewish life, so say the legions of Jewish-American comedians, taking to heart the words of Broadway character, Tom Levitt, who says: “Jews don’t sing and pray. They complain. And eat.”
If the aforementioned has a familiar ring of truth and humor for you, then you might be Jewish, so say the Jewish comics. The Jewish people as a whole, are here to stay and their clarion from the mountaintop makes clear their emerging presence through the medium of humor. As Alan King once quipped in mocked seriousness: “The rate of Jewish intermarriage is a serious problem. Scientists estimate that unless something can be done to stop intermarriage, in 100 years, the Jewish people will be reduced to a race of gorgeous blonds.”
Such humor is a commentary that the Jewish culture will not only survive, but it will permeate and become more than compatible with its current, surrounding populace. They are not going anywhere. They are, proudly, here to stay. Their irrepressible signature line since the Holocaust is pure and simple: “Never again.”
The Jewish culture’s belief-system and the importance of being successful in one’s chosen profession is captured in this humorous Jewish line: “In the Jewish doctrine, the fetus only becomes human when it graduates from Medical School.” The importance of success in life is an admirable trait among the Jewish community, as well it should be. Jewish standup comedian, Jackie Mason, once quipped: “My friend is half-Polish and half-Jewish. He’s a janitor, but he owns the building.” Mason’s implication here is that if you have Jewish blood in you, even in part, you’ll find a way to succeed. That is not arrogance, rather, it is Jewish pride, say the Jewish cultural experts and researchers. It is an admirable trait.
Stereotypically, the Jewish people center their lives around food, which has a high priority in any Jewish household. More so than normal. Jewish comedians do not deflate this stereotype of having a preoccupation with food but, rather, they embrace it as fact of Jewish life through their comedy routines. As funnyman, Billy Crystal, says: “Our family could be called ‘Dancing With Jews.’ We had names for our Jewish relatives like they had in the movie (Dances With Wolves) that described our eating habits, such as ‘Eats With His Hands,’ or ‘Makes Noise When He Eats’ and ‘Spits When He Talks’ or even ‘Never Buys Retail.’ After dinner a tow truck would move the entire family into the living room.”
That Jewish families have almost a religious affiliation with eating is bountiful material for Jewish comics to work with. Billy Crystal pounces on the opportunity: “Our mother was trying to kill us with fatty foods. And you never called the food by its real name – you called it by what it does to your body. For example, you’ll say, ‘Hey, Mom, pass me some of that ‘burning sensation to my colon.’ This was way before cholesterol so 7year-olds were having heart attacks.” (“Mr. Saturday Night,” Ibid.) History’s greatest and most legendary Jewish-American comics flourished in an area located in upstate New York called the Catskill Mountains and commonly referred to as the Borscht Belt. No other piece of real estate on the planet ever gave forth such a constellation of comedy giants as the Borscht Belt, sometimes called “The Jewish Alps.”
The Borscht Belt was a legendary proving ground for upcoming Jewish entertainers, as well as a familiar landmark for the seasoned performer. Overall, it was a multi-hotel resort haven for the Jewish-American families to play, eat, fraternize, and be entertained, from the 1920s onward.
The Borscht Belt was a matrix for generating first-magnitude Jewish comedians, such as: Jack Benny, Woody Allen, Mel Brooks, Billy Crystal, Jerry Lewis, Carl Reiner, Joan Rivers, The Three Stooges, Groucho Marx, Sid Caesar, Danny Kaye, Buddy Hackett, Milton Berle, Gene Wilder, Phil Silvers, Joey Bishop, Rodney Dangerfield, Peter Sellers and countless others. Borscht Belt humor refers to the rapid-fire delivery, and few could match Jewish comedian, Henny Youngman. He was highly thought of for his hilarious ‘schtick’ (from the Yiddish: shtik). He was the fastest comic of his day, clocked at delivering an astonishing eight or more jokes per minute, sometimes exceeding 50 jokes in a span of only eight minutes! Rarely did a joke last more than 24 seconds. He was not only quick, but his jokes were hilariously rich in comedic imagery: “While playing golf today I hit two good balls. I stepped on a rake!” Holding a violin down by his side, it would become more a prop than an instrument.
While Henny Youngman was a double threat in that he could play his humor to both Gentiles and Jews alike, he still used the Yiddish verbalstyle of construction – such as ending sentences with questions, which is a prominent part of word-play for Jewish comedians: “Someone asked me ‘Why do you Jewish people always answer a question with a question?’ And I said, “Why not?” This exchange would register with both Gentile and Jewish audiences. However, Youngman’s following Yiddish example of (also) answering a question with a question is far different in nature and, consequently, registers more with the Jewish audiences:
Rabbi: “Soon the government will blame us all over again. They will blame the Jews and the chim-
July 30, 2020
neysweeps.” Gentile: “Why the chimneysweeps?” Rabbi: “Why the Jews?”
Once more, if you think the chimneysweep commentary to be funny – well then, you just might be Jewish (at least in the figurative sense). Youngman’s quick nonstop delivery showed no mercy for his audience which often gasped for air between fits of uncontrolled laughter! He segued to more mainstream, Gentile joke-telling and gave his audience no rest period. “My older brother-in-law died. He was a karate expert. Then he joined the Army. The first time he saluted, he killed himself!” His timing was deadly at quick bursts of comedic fire-power, so much so, that his monologues would become the talk of the town at such Jewish digs as Carnegie Deli, Delancey Street, the Friars Club and, of course, the summer resorts at the Borscht Belt. Henny Youngman’s lifelong friend, the legendary Borscht Belt standup comic, Myron Cohen, was his exact opposite. Cohen spoke in a contrived thick Yiddish accent, and was a masterful storyteller who took his measure in setting up his punch lines. Cohen’s popularity would see him appear on the Ed Sullivan Show 26 times, to Youngman’s 20. Even then, Jewish-Americans completely dominated the world of comedy.
At 6’ 2” Youngman was an unusual specimen of his day during the early 1920s, miniaturizing many of his fellow Jewish comedians – who like himself – were largely unknown. These unknown contemporaries of Henny Youngman often stood in the wings, waiting to go on after Youngman completed his set. More often than not, they were short comics, who struggled for recognition, such as Red Buttons who only stood at 5’ 6” or George Burns at 5’ 7” and Don Rickles 5’ 6.” Red Buttons, whose hair color matched his name, was a Borscht Belt favorite-son. He would tell his audience: “Ninety isn’t old. You’re old when your doctor doesn’t X-ray you anymore. He just holds you up to the light!” When it was his turn to take the stage, a young George Burns (without Gracie) did not disappoint. Puffing his cigar, Burns took his time, showing uncanny calm and smoothness in his delivery, an admirable style that Borscht Belt comics call “Burning slow.” George Burns’ lines were smooth as molasses and self-deprecating and scored big each time out: “I love to sing, and I love to drink scotch. Most people would rather hear me drink scotch.” As for Don Rickles, he would quickly learn his craft to become “The Merchant of Venom.” He was young, inexperienced, and learning his craft as he navigated through various ‘schtick,’ weeding out the lines that did not play. He knew his limits in insulting his audience. In those early years, in the 1930s, Henny Youngman could see his fellow Jewish comics in the wings, pacing and waiting to hit their respective marks, hoping for recognition and a
bigger salary that comes with it. As for Youngman, he was so good at sustaining a steady volley of quick, short jokes, that one night a man sitting in the darkened audience, hat still on his head, quickly scribbled words on a piece of paper that would forever change Youngman’s career, for the better. The author of the scribbled note that night was none other than Walter Winchell, America’s most powerful newspaper columnist of his era. Winchell’s conferred title, “The King of the OneLiners,” would become a lifelong Henny Youngman trademark name. Walter Winchell, who was also Jewish, wielded almost unlimited power and influence that would become so formidable in his heyday that just a few words from his column could make-or-break an entertainer’s career, or even close a Broadway play, or any other business venture, such as a restaurant. The powerful legacy of Jewish humor and comedians continues to this day with such dazzling stars as Jerry Seinfeld, Adam Sandler, Jon Stewart, Jack Black, Lewis Black, Albert Brooks, Jerry Stiller, Jason Alexander, and legions more. Many of today’s Jewish comedians are cross-over hits with their humorous remarks being “mainstream funny” and not just for the Jewish ears.
The great Jewish jokes of old burlesque, vaudeville, and radio sometimes show the wear of years, yet they often can still produce a slight smile, perhaps a soft chuckle, maybe a hearty laugh. Jaded people may make fun of the old humor back then, forgetting that these were the harbingers, the pioneers, the vanguards upon whose shoulder blades all modern comics stand upon today. We should pay our justified respects and homage to those golden years, long gone and often forgotten.
In a recent poll, few millennials recognized the names of Milton Berle, Jack Benny, Sid Caesar, Phil Silvers, Buddy Hackett, Groucho Marx, Rodney Dangerfield, or even Henny Youngman. These illustrious giants often illicit a blank look of total nonrecognition from today’s younger generation. I was never around during those stellar days, either. But, I make it a point to learn more about my country’s proud history and culture through books and videos, all free from our public libraries. You don’t have to be Jewish, or Gentile, or Black, or a member of any other ethnic group to rediscover how truly funny these first “Men On the Moon” were; those early comedians who discovered a new landscape, a new world, and who – like astronauts – charted a newer science of comedy and explored new worlds in which to laugh. Especially through the Golden Age of radio when listeners of Jack Benny, or George Burns were forced to use their imagination – not vision – to follow their every word and adventure. Even the Jewish master, “The Man of a

Thousand Voices,” Mel Blanc, created imaginary worlds populated with equally-imaginary characters – simply from his uncanny voice modulations, forcing our imaginations to take wing.
Department in Poway, arrested a male for narcotics and weapons violations and, as the law required based on his offense, the male submitted a DNA sample.
The jokes of bygone years may be scoffed at, perhaps even ridiculed as “cornball” humor. Sadly, we forget, that these were the early pioneers of comedy, like the Wright Brothers, Marconi, and Edison, we stand upon their shoulders of achievements.
With this information, detectives diligently followed new leads, cross-checked the information and worked with the San Diego County District Attorney’s Office to identify Kingery as a suspect in the 1987 murder of Ms. Santiago.
Today’s generation of kids (demand) to be entertained, visually, with little or no requirement to use their imagination at all. Progress does not always bring about advancement within the human species.
The Borscht Belt legacy is like a gentle whisper from our distant past, riding on the wings of yesteryear, entreating us – to not forget our great humble beginnings. Leave pretense and arrogance at the door. Then, close your eyes, and dare to release your childlike imagination once more so that you can hear the Great Ones, plying their trade from yesteryear: “The doctor gave a man 6 months to live. The man couldn’t pay his bill, so the doctor gave him another 6 months.” Or this one from long ago, out of the Catskill Mountains, when the Borscht Belt once ruled the world and legendary Jewish comedians stood as kings before their adoring audiences: “The doctor calls his patient, Mrs. Cohen, to complain about her check that ‘bounced,’ telling her on the phone: ‘Mrs. Cohen, your check came back.’ And Mrs. Cohen says, ‘So did my arthritis.’”
In May of 2020, the San Diego County Sheriff’s Crime Lab notified the Carlsbad Police Department that the DNA samples from the 1987 case were a match to those of Kingery.
Kingery was booked into the San Diego Central Jail for Murder with no bail. His next scheduled court date is July 31, 2020.
The Carlsbad Police Department would like to thank all those that assisted in this 33-year investigation. This includes, but is not limited to, the San Diego County District Attorney’s Office, the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department, and the San Diego County Sheriff’s Crime Lab.
The investigation is ongoing and no additional information will be released at this time.

Back to Work
Several employees in the Capitol and 2 Assemblymembers tested positive for COVID last month which stopped our work in its tracks. This week marks the start of a short, final month for the 2019 – 2020 session. Public safety is a priority, and I am very proud to join Assemblymembers Cooper, Bonta and Gonzalez to co-author AB 664. The March 4 state of emergency declaration requires all peace officers, firefighters and health-care workers to remain on the job -- for our protection. Since this places them at heightened risk, we must do all we can to protect them. AB 664 provides full hospital, surgical, medical, disability indemnity and death benefits to all peace officers, firefighters and healthcare workers who contract COVID-19 while performing their duties. The bill has bipartisan support, and sponsors include the Los Angeles Police Protective League, California Professional Firefighters, and the California Nurses Association. Another important bill is aimed at helping small businesses. As a small business owner myself, I know how difficult it is to keep up
with changing laws and regulations. During this time of forced shutdowns, it’s even more difficult. SB 1457, introduced by Senator Borgeas, requires state agencies to help small businesses comply with ever-changing statutes and regulations, and reduces or waives civil penalties for some violations. The bill also establishes the Office of Small Business Advocate within the Governor’s Office of Business and Economic Development (GOBIZ), and requires all state agencies that significantly impact or regulate small business to designate at least one person as a small business liaison. During this emergency, we must do all we can to protect our first responders, and to assist small businesses trying to stay afloat and keep employees working. Bills like AB 664 and SB 1457 will help. 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.

He is an extreme danger to the public and should not be housed in our community.
We should not allow Sexually Violent Predators to live in our rural communities with families, schools, and hiking trails present.
I’m going to do everything in my power to make sure this Sexually Violent Predator is not put in Pauma Valley, but I need your help!
There are several ways to provide comments to the court on or before July 27th Send an email to: Jim.Desmond@sdcounty.ca.gov and my office will forward your correspondence to the courts.
I will be holding a community “Zoom” meeting on July 29th at 11:00am to talk about what is being done and how you can call into the actual meeting.

meet my wife and two kids." I look at Evelyn and we both think at the same time, "we did something right!" These kids have all turned out just fine and have made Evelyn and me very proud. The forming of the organization came about because of two fatal drive-by shootings. I remember I got upset at the first youth that was killed . . but about two weeks later little five year old Ricky Cardenas was also killed. It was a driveby shooting and the bullet missed its intended target and hit and killed the little boy. That's when I really got angry and said, "someone has to do something about this." So, I did. Soon after that, Los Caballeros was born.
We'd take the kids hiking the first Saturday of every month, flying (in real planes) the second Saturday, camping the third . . . and, perhaps, to the beach on the fourth Saturday. It was a great organization. Sometimes I miss it . . . but am so damned busy with the paper . . . and age is catching up to me . . . that I have to leave it to others to carry on. •••• Our compliments to the Carlsbad Police Department, San Diego County District Attorney’s Office, the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department, and the San Diego County Sheriff’s Crime Lab, for the brilliant and persistent work on solving the 33 yearold-murder of Julia HernandezSantiago. Very impressive work and dedication by professional law enforcement.
Just think, had these law enforcement agencies been defunded . . . what do you suppose might have happened?
Another strong argument to support our law enforcement members and ignore the ridiculous calls to defund the police.
This world is crazy enough already. I can’t believe some of the crap I’m seeing in today’s world. Loony toon characters proposing policy and programs. Unbelievable.
•••• A number of family and friends gathered at Arie and Anneke De Jong’s Melrose Ranch last week to say goodbye to Pete De Jong, who passed away on Wednesday, July 15.

Historically Speaking by Tom Morrow
Houston: A Man For All Reasons
Sam Houston was the 19th century’s “man for all reasons.” He was a soldier, a statesman, a governor, a republic president, a congressman, and a U.S. senator. Above all, he was a storied American character.
James K. Polk's prosecution of the Mexican–American War.
He was an unsuccessful candidate for the U.S. presidential nomination of the American Party in the 1856 presidential election and the Constitutional Union Party in the 1860 presidential election. In 1859, Houston won election as the governor of Texas. In this role, he opposed secession and unsuccessfully sought to keep Texas out of the Confederate States of America. He was forced out of office in 1861 and died in 1863. Houston's name has been honored in numerous ways, including having the nation’s fourth largest city named for him.
One of the legends of the Texas Revolution involves a woman who supposedly was a spy for Houston, acting as a concubine for Mexican president General Antonio Lopez de Santa Ana. Emily D. West, also known as Emily Morgan, was a Texas folk heroine whose legendary activities during the Texas Revolution have come to be identified with the song "The Yellow Rose of Texas."
West was said to be a free woman of mixed race, or what was known as a "high yellow" as people of mixed color were referred. She was an indentured servant for one year in the community of Morgan's Point, Texas.
Born in Rockbridge County, Virginia on March 2, 1793, Samuel Houston was an important leader of the Texas Revolution. He served as the first and third president of the Republic of Texas, and was one of the first two individuals to represent Texas in the United States Senate. But before his Texas years, Houston served as the sixth governor of Tennessee and later became the seventh governor of the state of Texas. He was the only American to be elected governor of two different states.
With the support of Andrew Jackson, in 1823, Houston won election to the United States House of Representatives representing Tennessee. He strongly supported Jackson's presidential candidacies, and in 1827, Houston was elected as the governor of Tennessee. In 1829, Houston resigned from office, and joined his Cherokee nation friends in the Arkansas Territory.
Houston settled in Texas in 1832. After the Battle of Gonzales, Houston helped organize Texas's provisional government and was selected as the top-ranking official in the “Texian Army,” which he led to victory at San Jacinto, the decisive battle in Texas's war for independence against Mexico.
After the war, Houston won election in the 1836 Texas presidential election. He left office due to term limits in 1838 but won election to another term in the 1841 Texas presidential election. Houston played a key role in the annexation of Texas by the United States in 1845, and in 1846, he was elected to represent Texas in the U.S. Senate. He joined the Democratic Party and supported President
Several months into her year of indentureship, on April 16, 1836, West and other residents were kidnapped by Mexican cavalry. West was forced to travel with the forces of General Antonio López de Santa Ana as they prepared to face the army led by Sam Houston. She was in the Mexican camp on April 21 when Houston's force attacked.
The Texans won the Battle of San Jacinto in 18 minutes, losing only nine men. According to legend greatly helped by information secretly passed by “the Yellow Rose,” Santa Ana had been caught unprepared because he was in an amorous state with West. No contemporary accounts indicate Santa Ana was with a woman at the time, but the story was recorded in the journal of Englishman William Bollaert in 1842, who was told that particular tale by Houston. Years later, Bollaert's diary was published in 1956, and amateur historians began to expand Houston’s tale, suggesting that West fit the description of the girl in the thenpopular folk song "The Yellow Rose of Texas." The story continued to grow, with many references to West's beauty. As her legend took hold, by the 1986 Texas Sesquicentennial it pretty much was considered historical fact. Maybe, maybe not. In recent years, her story continued in the TV miniseries “Texas Rising.”
But, to quote the late film director John Ford: “when you have reality versus legend, print the legend … it’s always more interesting.”

Bonsall Woman's Club Plans Activities for New Year/September-June - The Bonsall Womanâ€™s Club (BWC) recently held a virtual Board Meeting to plan for their new year starting in September. They planned an outstanding variety of activities throughout their normal calendar year of September through June. Thanks to the ever evolving, and vastly improved, world of video conferencing, BWCâ€™s incoming President, Peggy Durling, organized a video conference to welcome the new board. The meeting took place on July 2nd where, among other items, discussions on the upcoming year occurred. The cyber-meeting went as planned. In addition, two new members, Maryann Collings and Tuula Hukkanen, were also announced, bringing the total to 91. There are plans for similar virtual conferencing to take place for the August board meeting. For more information on the BWC, please visit www.bonsallwomanclub.org.

Have you ever been in a house and seen a beautifully carved cuckoo clock, and then all of a sudden heard it chiming? Well, it’s a pretty common situation nowadays. But did you ever wonder when and how those clocks first started?
It is generally regarded that cuckoo clocks as we know them today started in the Black Forest Region in Germany. More specifically, they were created around 1630 in the village of Triberg. The most-popular type of cuckoo clock was first designed in 1738 by Franz Ketterer. He was inspired by the local church organs, and his new system included small bellows and whistles that imitated a cuckoo’s call. His first model was an elaborately decorated painted wooden clock. The cuckoo was located behind a small door.
The cuckoo clock gained incredible popularity within Germany, enough for many people in the Black Forest to try their hand at clock making. Clock-peddlers began traveling to different areas of Germany, as well as to France and elsewhere to sell their clocks. The cuckoo’s call became well-known throughout
Europe, and actually was made the same way it is today, nearly 300 years later. Similar to churchorgans, the sound was made by two bellows sending air through pipes.
The fame of the Black Forest for making cuckoo clocks has spread worldwide. In fact, the most valuable Black Forest clock is the “world-time-clock”, which was made in 1787, and is located today in the German clock museum in Furtwangen.
Typically, the casing of a cuckoo clock is traditional and is usually in the shape of a rustic birdhouse or a chalet. Many of the clocks are decorated with animals, plants, leaves, and depict hunting scenes. Some are ornamented with typical Black Forest scenes, such as dancing couples in traditional dress moving to music, as well as a rotating mill wheel, or even a farmer chopping wood. A cuckoo bird often appears through a small trap door when the clock is striking, and then goes behind the door after the striking stops. Many of the clocks are run by weights, often in the shape of pinecones, underneath the clock. They needed to be pulled up once a day, or a week, or longer, depending on the model. Recently, battery powered cuckoo clocks have been

developed, but do not have the same bellows and striking that have been associated with the clocks for 300 years. The cuckoo clock has survived to this day. It is still greatly in demand, and is a hand-carved work of art that can be treasured for decades.
Collectors still cherish cuckoo clocks as well. Clocks are often auctioned, and prices can really run the gamut. For example, a 19th century Black Forest wall clock with a cuckoo door went for $750, while another carved wood cuckoo mantle clock from the early 20th century sold for $2500 at auction. Often, the taller the clock the pricier they are. For example, a large wall 40 inch fully-carved clock depicting a deer family went for $3500. Sometimes clocks are bought for the beauty and ornateness of the clock itself, rather than for the clock’s mechanism. As an example, in 2006 an elaborately carved antique walnut cuckoo clock with carving of birds and deer was auctioned. However, some pieces were missing, and the clock that was offered did not have any weights. Nonetheless, the clock was auctioned for $5000. Cuckoo clocks are indeed cherished by many, due in fact for a few reasons. They not only are nos-
talgic, but also the product is very well-made. They remind people of how ornate and exquisite many items of the past were. Unfortunately many items are not built with the same craftsmanship today. That is why cuckoo clocks will continue to be a favorite around the world of collectors and non-collectors alike. They combine the best of the past with the necessities of today.

about a new set of opportunities. The pandemic triggered the necessity for a virtual collaboration for the club to finish out the year’s calendar.

‘New Collar’ Job Training Program in Escondido Pays Students to Learn - As the knowledge economy continues to grow, apprenticeship programs like the one at Escondido-based San Diego Code School will become more important to regions around the globe, sparking job growth and boosting quality of life in communities. The San Diego Code School’s apprenticeship program was recently approved by the Department of Apprenticeship Standards and received Employment Training Panel funding to support workforce development at its two locations in downtown Escondido and Southeast San Diego - both achievements of which should be celebrated! The San Diego Code School, which opened in September 2018, has shifted gears a bit and is now tuition free and its students get paid to code. The apprenticeship program, which started in March 2020, follows many traditional trade professions giving students a chance to learn by working directly in the field. Students accepted into the program are placed in a yearlong paid technology position where they learn the process by doing it. The San Diego Code School works with partner companies throughout the county - including ServiceNow, NewRocket, BD, UCSD/PoNG, Kizen, and BrainLeap - who pay apprentices to learn software development, who in turn, get real world experiences in the indus-
Most of the students who apply for these apprenticeships are between 25-to-35 years old, and are looking to transition into technology. “I’m trying to help people that are in the earlier parts of their professional careers, figure out what they can do to get back into a job,” said Michael Roberts, Founder of San Diego Code School. As far as recruiting goes, Roberts’ approach is to reach out to community organizations for candidates. Here he is finding young people who may not be on the traditional college career path yet are still looking for good jobs. “By reaching out into the community, we get this much more diverse candidate pool and that ultimately results in more candidates working their way through and qualifying for this kind of role,” he said. This recruiting technique has proven successful as recently 99 potential students applied for four open spaces. Roberts - a software engineer who has worked in the technology space for three decades - feels the apprenticeship model works well for the technology sector. “It’s a super simple concept when you boil it down to the way we get funded.” He went on to explain that instead of having companies ship their workload offshore, they instead send it to San Diego Code School and there, local students will work on the projects. “From the students' perspective, it’s even simpler. You’re just getting paid to learn.”

There has been such a demand for its unique program that the San Diego Code School expanded from its home base in downtown Escondido to another location in southeast San Diego. “These are both untapped areas in San Diego,” said Roberts, adding that these areas are rich in minority communities who tend to be underrepresented in technology. “We want to create that opportunity where otherwise it may not be.” Even though the COVID-19 pandemic has shut down its physical locations, the school is operating fully remotely. By participating in this program, students become proficient in QA (Quality Assurance), software engineering and software developer roles. These skills will give them the training and experience to find programming and junior-level software engineering roles.

Folks should have the basic mechanics of how to do some light coding. They really need to be able to think programmatically to break problems down and deconstruct, and communicate technology, all those things that we can teach someone to do fairly well in a year’s time.” Apprentices from San Diego Code School have been placed in several small-to-midsize technology companies throughout San Diego, and some are working with major companies such as Walmart Labs and Sony.

I want the founding fathers of our country to be perfect – Washington, Jefferson, Franklin, Paine, as well as all the other notables of our nation’s history – T. Roosevelt, C. Columbus, US Grant, A. Lincoln, J. Kennedy, and every member of Congress, and, of course, our present President. How dare these persons claim any recognition historically with records of owning slaves, drunkenness, infidelity, bribery, and favoritism in politics? Those who are the destroyers of historical monuments, marchers for justice, defacing public buildings of historical worth, and demanders that anyone who has broken their idea of right ought somehow to be held accountable and even punished in absentia. Just who are these people condemning the police, our government, history, and anyone who challenges them? Are they the perfect, righteous ones set forth to
As a member of the human race and citizen of this country, I look for perfection, but sadly, am unable to find it, both historically and presently, much less in myself. And I suspect that every human being that ever lived had the same illness and consequently, did things which were wrong, unjust, irrational, selfish, greedy, and harmful. It doesn’t take much to see the blight of human nature and the hypocrisy of those parading their virtue at the expense of the many who lived with their imperfections, but worked to make their world and lives better.
Give me the person who knows his/her weakness, often living in an undefined milieu socially, but makes a positive contribution. It is easy to judge others in our blindness of the self. Remember those who dragged the woman caught in the act of adultery (ever wonder where the man was?) and accused her before the Christ only to hear Him say, “He who is without sin, let him cast the first stone.” The response needed in our society is to see our own weakness and do something to correct it. A better world will follow. For counsel, support, and inspiration call Dial-a-Prayer 760 7466611.

Escondido • Mayor Paul “Mac” McNamara Greetings Escondido,
When you read this, one of two things will have happened. One is the sales tax measure remains failed at council level, or it passed and it will be put on the November ballot. While I have a lot of respect for my colleagues, one of our council members voted no and we needed a unanimous vote. I get that we need to vote our conscience and even if I disagree with someone, I respect that. But in this case, I think a mistake might have been made.
The problem of needing money didn’t come from previous mismanagement at the city level, it is not a tax and spend program. It is an inherited problem from Sacramento. Our choices are to pay a little more in taxes or dramatically reduce the services of the city for years to come. We are barebones in our budgeting, and to cut more would in my opinion put us in a downward spiral for 18 years. I think we have to bite the bullet. And for the record, I don’t like taxes either. Stay informed, Be Kind, Remember your neighbor, and Stay safe! Semper Fi, Mac

My father's wife (also my step daughter) and my step-mother, gave birth to a son who is my grandchild because I am the husband of my step daughter's mother. This boy is also my brother, as the son of my father.
As you can see, my wife became a grandmother, because she is the mother of my father's wife. Therefore it appears that I am also my wife's grandchild. A short time after these events, my wife gave birth to a son, who became my father's brother-in-law, the step-son of my father's wife, and my uncle.
My son is also my step mother’s brother, and through my step-mother, my wife has become a grandmother and I have become my own grandfather.
In light of the above mentioned, I would like to know the following: Does my son, who is also my uncle, my father's son-in-law and my step mother's brother fulfill the requirements for receiving childcare benefits? Sincerely yours, Mohammed
THE ANSWER: Of course you qualify Mohammed! I have arranged to start mailing the checks to all of you just as soon as you arrive here in California. Yours faithfully, Gavin Newsom Governor, State of California

Protecti ng Our Local Waterwa ys
Do you have a lawn or garden? Preventing irrigation runoff is important, because the runoff enters our storm drain system and transports pollutants, such as fertilizer and pesticides into local creeks. This negatively impactsour local water quality. To prevent irrigation runoff entering into the storm drain system, follow these steps. Together we can make a difference! • Check irrigation system for broken lines and sprinkler heads, then replace if necessary • Adjust sprinklers to prevent overspray onto the sidewalk and street • Be aware of the frequency and duration of your irrigation system to prevent overwatering • If you have slopes that are not planted, cover them with plants or mulch to prevent the dirt from eroding. • Minimize use of fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides. • Store pesticides, fertilizers, and other chemicals in a covered area.

ed and easy to understand. Life was good.
Today’s family of four still pays for those same monthly services but in addition, they pay for cable, Internet and cell phone service. The monthly total for that family today is $600 to $800. That amount is probably reasonable when you recognize how much family incomes have increased over the past fifty years. Considering how much these technologies have changed our lives and how much we rely on them, they certainly seem to be worth their modest cost.

“Illegitimi non carborundum.”II, High tech survival guide.
Back where Nome and I grew up in “small town” Indiana, life seemed far less complicated than it is today, Up until shopping malls began to appear in the early 1960s, serious shopping required an all day trip to a nearby metropolis like Dayton, Cincinnati or Indianapolis. The alternative was to shop by catalogue and order your prepaid merchandise by mail and wait a couple of weeks for it to arrive. TV was free but limited to the stations that you could pick up on your rooftop antenna. A family of four would pay less than $100 a month for telephone, electricity, water and perhaps heating and cooking fuel. The billing statements were uncomplicat-
That being said there does seem to be a disturbing trend among the companies that provide the services that lubricate our high tech contemporary lifestyles. Many appear to use some combination of our trusting nature, our laziness and confusing billing procedures to charge us for services we don’t need, want, use or even understand. Often it is small charges added to our bills that, to us, don’t seem worth the effort to challenge. To those companies however, when applied across a large customer base, that small dollar amount multiplied by millions of customer can mean hundreds of millions in extra revenue. The primary job of management in any large corporation is to optimize profitability.
that a significant number of us simply won’t notice when they start getting charged for the “free “services they don’t use. When your promotional package expires at the end of two years and your bill rises significantly, many users (especially those with auto-pay) won’t even notice.
Some companies are very consumer friendly. Amazon and EBay are good examples of service providers who recognize their buyers as their primary concern. Vendors are strictly regulated and disputes favor the consumer. PayPal is the opposite. Pay-pal serves the sellers. If you use PayPal to pay for goods or service and have a dispute, be prepared to lose.
There is no easy way to defend yourself against the constant nickel and dime activities of the major service providers. You need to study and understand their billing process. You should be very careful who you allow on auto-pay. Inspect each bill and compare it with previous months. Sometimes these companies make mistakes, big ones too. Next week we will discuss how to deal with these large corporations when you have a legitimate dispute. SPECIAL: We got a large shipment of HP Elite 8300 i3 PCs last week. With Windows 10 Professional they’re a perfect general purpose home or office workstation. We are blowing them out for $195. Add a monitor for $50.
Many service companies offer free services and reduced prices as limited term incentives to sign you up. Often the freebies are something you would never pay for or use. You may have every intention to cancel the limited time “freebies” when they stop being free and to move on when your two year promo expires. In spite of your best intentions these companies know

port the mission to bring minority and underrepresented students to technology. Advancing San Diego, an initiative through San Diego EDC, has backed the school with a grant that has offered a few students internship hours through designated work they provide. “We think it’s an awesome opportunity for them to get some real-world experience,” said Roberts. Roberts is continually seeking grants and partnership opportunities like Advancing San Diego to continue to build the school and give more students opportunities to learn and work in the regional tech industry.
San Diego Code School is also part of Innovate 78, and Roberts feels the North County is a thriving community. “Being around so many dynamic leaders in the area and seeing all the advanced manufacturing and all the great things happening up close and personal, I think has been really eye-opening for me,” he said. Roberts added the city leaders of Escondido have welcomed his business and have offered assistance in many ways. “We’ve even had the mayor over. I spent a lot of time in this area and still did not expect the kind of warm reception that we’ve had in the City of Escondido.” Roberts, who feels Escondido is the perfect fit for his school, added, “Anybody that wants to get involved can check out our website. We’re always looking for you; companies or sponsors. If folks want to further this cause and help create this breadth of underrepresented talent, we’re always looking for folks that are willing to help us out.”
Humane Society "Retires" PAWS Name to Expand Reach - Since San Diego Humane Society merged with PAWS San Diego in 2014, they have been providing the resources, supplies and support necessary to help pet families in need keep their pets. The merger with PAWS was one of the most meaningful events in our 140-year history, and our work to be there for our entire community is now expanding in new and exciting ways. Keeping pets with their families is now the main mission for San Diego Humane Society. After six years of integrating the work of the PAWS team throughout our organization, it’s time for San Diego Humane Society to fully embrace the PAWS mission to act as a safety net in everything we do. As such, we will be retiring the PAWS name this month. Now, rather than having one program dedicated to helping people keep their pets, that goal will be reflected in all that we do. Of the thousands of interactions we have with our community, every SDHS team member will have the knowledge and tools to provide compassionate care and a range of integrated services. And because guests will be able to access our safety net services at every entry point, it will be even easier for them to receive the help they need.

When the pandemic first hit in March, many families were thrown into economic uncertainty — and their need for help to feed their pets skyrocketed. We quickly built on our existing food distribution model to reach the people who needed us most. We partnered with human services agencies across the county — from San Diego Unified School District to the Jacobs & Cushman San Diego Food Bank — to provide pet food distribution. We also learned that we can serve more pet families than ever through these partnerships, and that most of our clients who had been receiving inhome delivery of pet food could still access this service. Because our goal is to use our limited resources in ways that allow us to make the biggest impact possible, we will not be returning to the inhome delivery service that we provided prior to the pandemic. Instead, we will focus our efforts on building new partnerships that can best meet the needs of more pet families throughout San Diego County. Additionally, we know that increasing access to veterinary care for

This is why Geraldine Dâ€™Silva will be transitioning from her role as director of PAWS San Diego to become the director of Human Animal Support Services. In this new role, Geraldine will use her extensive expertise to develop a framework for providing community-based veterinary services. The launch of these services will not be immediate â€” building this program will take time, planning and resources. But implementing this work is a strategic priority for San Diego Humane Society, and weâ€™re excited for Geraldineâ€™s leadership to help build the foundation and launch this effort.

Social Butterfly dents of Seacrest Cont. from Page 10 Village Retirement
Seacrest Foundation fundraiser raised nearly $160,000 for Seacrest Village residents. The event, "Take A Swing for Seniors" was a unique semi-virtual tournament with raffle and online auction this year, because of the current Covid-19 pandemic. The decision was made to cancel the popular yearly in-person golf, tennis, pickleball & spa day, and pivot to the semi-virtual event. Foundation President Robert Haimsohn stated "Although we can't be together, we can still 'be there' for the resi-
Communities who have no-where else to turn for help." Proceeds from Take A Swing for Seniors Raffle and Online Auction will benefit the Resident Assistance Fund to provide charitable care for Seacrest Village residents in need. The community can still purchase rounds of golf at Del Mar Country Club through May 31, 2021. To do so, visit seacrestfoundation.org/golf or call Anna Johnston, Seacrest Foundation Events Manager at 760.516.205. Seacrest

Several speakers shared their personal stories about why they support Seacrest Foundation, where grandparents/parents who have been there or are still there being
provided the compassionate care by the staff who go beyond their expectations.
“Charitable care is assistance for those whose savings have been depleted due to illness or injury and for those who simply have no one to turn to for help,” said Devin Chodorow, President of the Guardians of San Diego volunteer group and Chair of the 2020 Committee. “Requests from Seacrest Village for charitable care exceed nearly 2.5 million dollars annually, and thanks to all of the participants in our semivirtual event, we raised over $160,000 to help Seacrest Village support this need, as well as providing support for the Covid-19 Emergency Fund.”
Seacrest Foundation thanks the dedicated volunteers, the Guardians of San Diego, and their presenting sponsor, The William Gumpert Foundation, as well as the entire community for their support of the organization during this challenging time. With help from this loyal group, Seacrest Foundation can continue to provide critical funds to support the residents of Seacrest Village. This year’s committee was led by chair, Devin Chodorow, and included members Earl Altshuler, Marty Ehrlich, Mary Epsten, Bob Haimsohn, Todd Kirschen, and Jon Schwartz. Guardians of San Diego recognizes the following additional top sponsors: Arthur J. Gallagher & Co, BYCOR General Contractors, City National Bank, Hughes Marino, Sid’s Carpet Barn, and Waxie Sanitary Supply.
