Volume 50 - No. 29

FICTION By Thomas Calabrese

It was 5 am on June 15, 1930, and Frank McCall was driving from San Diego to his ranch in Valley Center. The Depression had been hard on him and his family, but it was hard on the entire country so Frank did not have any other choice except to roll up his sleeves and work twice as hard to survive. He was able to get two weeks of work on a fishing boat and the money that he earned would definitely help pay some overdue bills. The ranch had been in his family for three generations and it was part of The Paper - 760.747.7119

his heritage and responsibility to make sure that it made it to his children. As he came over the ridge and into the valley the sun was just coming over the horizon and its amber rays slowly turned to yellow as they spread across the valley floor. Frank was mentally prioritizing how he was going to allocate the money and didn’t notice the truck parked alongside the road or how it pulled out and followed him. When the truck speeded up and came up right behind him, Frank mistakenly assumed that it was just a delivery driver who was running late so he pulled over just before

reaching a sharp turn in the narrow road to let him pass. When the truck got alongside it swerved to the right and knocked Frank’s vehicle over the edge and sent it careening down a ravine where it crashed into a boulder and exploded into flames. Three months later, Jenny McCall was doing everything she could to keep her head above water since her father’s untimely death. It would have been tough enough if she only had to worry about herself and the ranch, but she was also responsible for Frank Junior, her younger brother

who was fourteen years of age and her sister Mary who was ten. At the age of nineteen, Jenny felt like the weight of the world was resting on her shoulders and if she took one misstep or even rested she would be crushed by the hostile elements around here She took a shower and quickly got dressed, barely taking a few minutes to run a brush through her long blond hair or glance at her beautiful face in the mirror. “Time to get up! Rise and shine!” Jenny yelled out as she ran down the stairs.

Two minutes later, Frank Jr. and Mary sleepily entered the kitchen, “Eat your breakfast, do your chores and get to school on time. I’ll finish up what you don’t get to when I get back from work” Jenny’s words lingered in the still air even after she left. Three men sat on their horses and watched the McCall ranch from a hilltop. They rode down to a fenced pasture where ten cows and five horses were grazing peacefully. One of the men cut the wire while the other two men chased the livestock out.

Jenny was earning five dollars a day plus tips at Harold’s Café by working the breakfast and lunch rush. As soon as she walked through the door, impatient customers started calling out their orders. “Easy does it, I’ll be right with you.”

There was a loud boom that shook the entire wooden structure and rattled the glasses and plates on the tables. A man called out, “summer lightning,” but when Jenny looked out the window, she didn’t see a cloud in the sky. A quarter mile outside of town stood a large oak tree that was now split right down the middle from a powerful lightning strike. It was burning and from out of the flames stepped three figures. Frank Jr. and Mary saw the cut fence

As chance would have it I bumped into an old friend recently; I hadn’t seen him in over 40- years! Eventually, I asked him how his wife was.

“Not sure, she might be dead,” he said.

“What do you mean? She’s either alive or dead, right?” I said, somewhat perplexed at the confusing answer.

“Well,” he said, “the sex is about the same but the dishes are piling up.” •••• Another friend of mine went fishing the other day. While out on the lake he said, “I’m thinking of divorcing my wife. She hasn’t spoken to me in

Mary looked around then commented, “I wondered how far they wondered off.” “We’d better go look for them,” Frank Jr. said.

“What about school?” Mary asked nervously, “we’ll get in trouble if we don’t go.”

“We’ll go late and tell the teacher what happened, she’ll understand,” Frank replied, “We can’t afford to lose our livestock.” It was so busy that Jenny didn’t notice the young man enter and walked over to his table. “How can I help you?"

The man was 21 years of age, stood six feet tall with a slender build, bright blue eyes and a mesmerizing smile, “How about a piece of pie… any recommendations?” “The blueberry is freshly baked,” Jenny replied.

“That’s what I’ll have then, and a tall glass of milk to go with it.” The young man said.

Jenny gestured with a turn of her head to a sign prominently posted on the wall; All Food and Drink to Be Paid for In Advance, “Nothing personal, we get a lot of drifters coming in and ordering without any money.”

Disgusted, the Muslim man summoned the flight attendant and demanded a new seat. The man said "I cannot sit here next to this infidel." The flight attendant said, "Let me see if I can find another

The young man pulled out a fifty dollar bill and set it on the table,

Jenny had only seen a bill that large once before and stared at it, “Pie is only fifteen cents and milk is a dime.” “I may want another slice,”

“You can have a lot more than that,” Jenny smiled and brought the young stranger a large slice of pie and tall glass of milk. She watched him with great curiosity from the kitchen until Harold distracted her, “Hey Jenny, give me a hand.” Jenny walked over to the back door and opened it for Harold the cook who had an armful of boxes. When she returned to her previous vantage position, the young stranger was nowhere to be seen. She walked over to his table, and saw a note under the plate; Great service keep the change. The young stranger walked to the edge of town where he saw men entering a warehouse and followed them in. During the Depression, desperate men would do just about anything to survive and those fortunate few who had money and power could exploit that hopelessness for their own pleasure and financial advantage.

After checking, the flight attendant returned and stated, "There are no more seats in economy, but I will check with the captain and see if there is something in first class."

About 10 minutes went by, and the flight attendant returned and stated, "The captain has confirmed that there are no more seats in economy, but there is one in first class. It is our company policy to never move a person from economy to first class, but being that it would be some sort of scandal to force a person to sit next to an UNPLEASANT person, the captain agreed to make the switch to first class!" Before the irate Muslim man could say anything, the attendant gestured to the elderly woman and said, "Therefore, madam, if you would so kindly retrieve your personal items, we would like to move you to the comfort of first class, as the captain doesn't want you to sit next to an unpleasant person." Passengers in the seats nearby began to applaud, while some gave a standing ovation! •••• Everyone tells you that smoking will kill you.

years ago to the day, his wife Martha threatened to leave him because of his intolerable cruelty. He responded by beating her to death, then burying her broken body in a nearby canyon. When his three young sons; Malcom, Moses and Henry awakened to find that their mother was gone, Rufus lied, “Your mother didn’t love you enough to stay, I’m the only one who cares about you, remember that.” Rufus Tyrell then proceeded to try and turn his impressionable sons into versions of himself; mean spirited bullies who preyed on the weak and defenseless.

The building was beginning to fill up and the young man found a seat on a wooden bleacher that faced a twenty by twenty foot fenced area. Rufus Tyrell owned the warehouse, managed the gambling and wrote the rules where fighters of various skills and different levels of desperation came to this makeshift arena. Some came to prove how tough they were, others were only there for the money. Rufus wanted the combatants to battle to the bitter end so it was one hundred dollars to winner and nothing to the loser. The rules were simple; no biting, no eye gouging and a man had ten seconds to rise after being knocked down, other than that, anything was allowed. The mysterious stranger watched five fights with disinterest as contestants went to the brink of death for the

prize that Rufus Terrell dangled before them. The losers were often dragged out of the ring, unconscious, injured and covered with blood while the winners were not in much better condition. Rufus relished the gory spectacle, laughing and cheering every time a fighter suffered a crushing blow. It fed the evilness in his diseased soul, but what really stoked his depravity was having a fighter that instilled fear and terror. Merciless power was always his goal.

Big Ozzie was six foot eight inches tall with long red hair that framed his Neanderthal features of elongated skull, sloping forehead and oversized face, nose and mouth. His hands were the size of oven mitts, like big slabs of meat that turned to hardened steel when he made a fist. Big Ozzie’s arms were human pile drivers that could literally crush a man and his legs were so massive and solid that it seemed that nothing could knock him off his feet.

When Big Ozzie entered the warehouse, men were in awe. They stepped aside when the creature that stretched the boundaries of the human species walked passed. Rufus Terrell proudly stood up and announced for all to hear, “I’ve got five thousand dollars to any man who can defeat my fighter. I’m also giving five to one odds on all bets.” No one ever took him up on his offer so

“What’s your name, boy? I don’t want to bury you in an unmarked grave.”

The list of men who lived to regret their decision to enter the ring with the massive brute was short because most did not survive the fight. Rufus had made a lot of money betting on his undefeated fighter even with the lopsided odds that he was forced to offer. He was completely caught off guard when a voice called out, “I’ll take that offer.” Everybody turned toward the sound of the voice and saw the young man stepping down from the bleacher. At first the crowd was astounded that this normal looking individual would get in the rink with Big Ozzie, but after their initial shock, they burst into laughter. The young man calmly walked past Big Ozzie and approached Rufus Terrell, “I don’t want any misunderstandings, five thousand when I beat your man. You said five to one odds on bets.” “That’s what I said,” Rufus laughed.

The young man pulled five thousand dollars from his pocket and set it before Rufus, “I’ll be expecting 30 thousand dollars when this is done.”

Rufus and his three sons were taken back by the confidence of this young man and wondered if he was crazy, suicidal or both. What the hell, Rufus thought, this was going to be the easiest five thousand that he ever made,

“Chance, Chance Place,” The young man answered, “Maybe you’ can bury me next to your wife in the canyon.” Rufus didn’t know how to respond, who was this man and how did he know about his wife?

Malcolm Terrell stepped forward with his right hand on his holstered weapon, “Watch your mouth, boy! Don’t mention my mother!”

“You pull that weapon and you’ll never use that arm again, boy,” Chance warned.

Rufus weakly placed his hand on his son’s shoulder, “Easy son, we’ll let Big Ozzie kill him.”

Big Ozzie and Chance Place faced each other from opposite sides of the cage. The larger opponent charged forward with every intent of quickly destroying his smaller opponent. Chance stepped aside and came up from behind Big Ozzie and drove fifteen powerful punches into his kidneys. The human monster grimaced, turned around in a rage and swung with all his might. Left hand, right hand, right, left, right left, nothing made contact. Chance was lightning quick and ducked, stepped or slipped out of the way of every punch. He slapped Big Ozzie over his ears and the big man brought his hands over his head. Chance punched Big Ozzie

in the solar plexus with punches so quick that it was hard to see them making contact. Big Ozzie dropped his hands to protect his mid-section and Chance slapped him over the ears again. When Ozzie’s hands came up, Chance punched low and when Ozzie blocked low, Chance slapped high. This process was repeated several times until Chance kicked Big Ozzie’s legs out from under him and he fell to the floor. Chance leaned over the murderous brute and offered him a deal, “Promise that you’ll never hurt another man and I’ll let you live.”

“Never! I’m going to kill you!” Big Ozzie spit out a mouthful of blood in defiance and struggled to get to his feet. When he did, Chance took the heel of his hand and rammed Big Ozzie’s orbital bone through his brain and he fell face forward.

A man came over and looked at the fallen body of Big Ozzie and shook his head to indicate that he was dead. The entire warehouse of hardened men was dumfounded at what had just transpired. Chance left the ring and walked over to Rufus Tyrell, “You owe me 30 thousand dollars.” Rufus swallowed hard, “I don’t have that much with me.”

Chance slapped Rufus across the face to humiliate him in public, “Get it in a hurry,” then left the warehouse

Two men who carjacked a driver at gunpoint and left the scene of a hitand-run are in custody. They yanked a man out of his car in the 900 block of Postal Way in Vista just before 3:00 p.m. on Tuesday, July 7th. They then crashed into another car and took off. A detective who happened to be in

the area heard the call on the radio and started looking for the suspects. When he spotted the stolen car, he safely followed and relayed information regarding the direction of the car to Sheriff’s ASTREA (helicopter) flying overhead. Responding deputies from the Vista Sheriff’s Station then took over the brief chase. The car ended up crashing into a curb with the driver and passenger running away. Deputies caught up with the driver at a nearby parking lot and the passenger along South Santa Fe Avenue. A loaded gun and illegal drugs were

found in the stolen car. Joseph Laxton (DOB 6/4/1994) and Ricardo Hernandez (DOB 10/5/1989) were booked on charges of carjacking, hit-and-run, a felon in possession of a firearm, drugs, violating parole, threat causing death or great bodily injury and participating in a criminal street gang. This case highlights the collaboration amongst our uniformed and plainclothes personnel, as well as the resources we have on the ground and in the air to solve a crime. It also shows deputies are never off duty and are always monitoring their radios to keep our communities safe. Escondido Dining Al Fresco a Big Success

This past Friday, July 10, the City of Escondido reduced the travel lanes on Grand Avenue between Maple Street and Juniper Street in order to allow restaurants to create temporary outdoor dining locations. Traffic was limited to one travel lane in each direction with the other lane serving as parking.

This effort is in response to the State’s July 7 shutdown order prohibiting indoor dining that has had an immediate impact on local businesses. City staff and the Downtown Business Association (DBA) have been working quickly

to streamline the permitting process that would normally take much longer in order to assist restaurants in staying open and operating outdoors. The DBA has committed $10,000 for shade coverings, tables, and chairs to support this effort and are also reimbursing downtown businesses the $100 Alcohol Beverage Control (ABC) permit fee to allow them to serve alcohol outside. The City will be providing temporary barriers in order to ensure the safety of diners and restaurant staff. Outdoor dining supports social distancing while allowing local businesses to modify their operations in compliance with the health order. In addition to Grand Avenue, the City is working on the Business Recovery Temporary Use Permit that will assist businesses located throughout Escondido. For more information and assistance in navigating that process visit https://www.escondido.org/specialtemporary-use-permits.aspx, contact Deputy Director of Economic Development Amber Tarrac at atarrac@escondido.org or 760-8394587. Escondido Mayor Paul “Mac” McNamara, who fully supported the project said, “we went to the merchants to find out what they wanted. They told us. We made it happen; We worked closely with Alex MacLachlane, who head upthe DBA. It all came together”

He Sent Three Cont. from Page 3 before anybody could react. When Rufus finally composed himself, he screamed out, “GET OUT! EVERYBODY GET OUT!!”

The men quickly complied with his command while Chance sat outside and smiled. When Rufus and his three sons exited the building, he told them, “I’m going to the bank, you go home.” “We’ll go with you,” Moses volunteered.

“If I wanted you to go with me, I would have told you so.” Rufus snapped back.

When Rufus Tyrell got to the bank, he counted his winning from the previous fights, still seething in anger that his fighter had lost, but having no empathy for his death. A hand reached out and took the money and when Rufus turned around, he saw that Chance Place was standing behind him, “What the hell!” Chance quickly counted the money and put it in his pocket “You still owe me eleven thousand.” When Rufus instinctively reached for his weapon, Chance grabbed it first, “I’ll hold this for you.”

The tyrannical land owner looked at the young man and for a split second thought about disputing the issue, but felt a cold shiver that ran up his back changed his mind. Rufus turned around without argument and walked up to the teller. While his back was turned, Chance took a thin metal rod that was four inches in length from his pocket and inserted it into the barrel of the Colt 44. When Rufus returned, he exchanged the weapon for the remaining money. “You got your money now get out of town,” Rufus ordered with false bravado.

“When my business is done and not before,” Chance replied calmly and left the bank.

Jenny finished her shift at the diner at one o’clock and was driving home, eager to tell her brother and sister about the fifty dollars tip that she received. When she got close to the family ranch she saw Frank Jr. and Mary walking along the dirt road. She honked to get their attention, “How come you’re not at school?” Frank gestured at the pasture, “Somebody cut the fence again. We were out looking for the cows and horses.”

Jenny was sure that Rufus Tyrell was behind this latest act of vandalism for he had been trying to drive them off their land even before her father had died. The good news of the fifty dollars quickly paled in comparison to the loss of their animals so she never mentioned it. Jenny and her siblings searched for the livestock for several hours without success before returning home in frustration.

“Where could they have gone?” Frank Junior sighed.

“We searched everywhere we could think of,” Jenny replied.

“We could go back out in the morning,” Mary suggested. “You two are going to school, I’ll go out by myself.”

There was a knock at the door and when Jenny opened it the young stranger was standing before her, “Did you follow me?” “No, ma’am,” Chance replied, “I came across some livestock, do they belong to you?” “How did you know where to bring them?” Jenny asked.

“Actually they were headed in this direction so I just followed along.”

Jenny saw that the horses and cows were in the corral and a vague image that resembled her deceased father. She blinked her eyes and the figure was gone. Jenny turned her attention back to the man before her. “Are you telling me that they just walked back here on their own? That’s even harder to believe than someone leaving fifty dollars for a slice of pie.” “Don’t forget there was a glass of milk too.” The young stranger smiled.

“I was just getting ready to fix supper for my brother and sister; you’re welcome to join us. Mister…I didn’t get your name” Jenny asked.

“Chance Place…if it’s not too much trouble, I’d be mighty appreciative.”

After dinner, Jenny offered, “I don’t know if you have some place to go, but you’re welcome to stay the night. We have a small room in the barn, nothing fancy, but it’s clean.” “ That’s very kind of you,” Chance replied.

J enny awakened just before sunset and looked out her bedroom window and saw the same figure moving about and went outside to investigate. When she got closer, she was sure it was her father. She stuttered, “Pa.” When the figure turned around, it was the young man, “I thought I’d fix the fence, I hope I didn’t disturb you, I tried to be quiet,” Chance smiled.

“You don’t have to do that,” Suddenly a thought crossed Jenny’s mind, “Why is it that I have this feeling that I won’t be seeing you again?”

“Things will be alright from now on,” This time there was no doubt that her father was standing before her.

Rufus Tyrell felt compelled to go to the canyon where he had buried his wife to check the gravesite even though he had not been back there in years. Not long after he left, Chance arrived at the sprawling Tyrell ranch and found Moses, Malcolm and Henry sitting out by the barn and

asked them. “Do you want to know what happened to your mother?” When Jenny entered the room in the barn, she saw a thick envelope setting on a table. When she opened it, she stared in disbelief at thirty thousand dollars.

Rufus had almost finished digging up the skeletal remains of his wife when Chance and the Tyrell brothers arrived to see their father with the shovel in his hand. Chance walked over and took a locket off the neck of the skeleton, opened it and showed it to the three men. The small photo was of a young woman with three young boys. “Your mother never left you, your father killed her when she tried to take you away” Chance said. Rufus went berserk and screamed out, “WHO ARE YOU…NOBODY KNOWS THIS!”

Tyrell brothers emotions fluctuated between terror stricken and total disbelief.

A loud boom of thunder shook the earth and a bright flash of lightning temporarily blinded the Tyrell brothers. When they opened their eyes the young stranger and their mother were nowhere to be seen. The spirits of Frank McCall, Martha Tyrell and Chance appeared at the split tree and they walked into it. It grew around them as if nothing ever happened. God sent three angels, one was accountability, the second was a father’s protection and the third was a mother’s love.

Chance replied calmly, “I’m your unborn son. Today would have been my twenty-first birthday.”

Rufus Tyrell angrily pulled out his pistol and fired at Chance not realizing that barrel was blocked. The gun exploded and the bullet ricocheted through his brain, killing him instantly. Suddenly Martha Tyrell appeared out of nowhere to face her three sons “It’s not too late to be decent men. Now that your father is dead, you’ve got no excuse for not being good neighbors. That means no more fence cutting and running off livestock. God has given you a second chance, you won’t get a third.” The three

Cookie Jars By Jeff Figler

Have you ever heard the expression about “putting your hand in the cookie jar”? Of course, that expression has been used for years, and refers to someone being caught doing something that they probably should not have done. But if you think about the saying, you might wonder about why the words cookie jar were used, and not, for example, refrigerator, or even teapot.

Well, actually cookie jars have always been very popular, and in the United States, it has been common for households to have cookie jars in the kitchen. When kids (or adults) were invited for dinner, it was frowned upon to take a cookie from the cookie jar before eating the meal, and then ruining your appetite. But it gets you thinking about where cookie jars came from?

Actually, cookie jars can be traced to 18th century England. They were then thought of as “biscuit jars”. “Biscuits” was a term that was used to mean a small tea cake or scone. That would be called a cookie in America. Once these “biscuits” were heated, they needed to be stored in a place that kept them fresh. The biscuits, or cookies, found their way to the United States, and by the 1800s cookie jars could be found on store and bakery counters, filled with cookies.

Home-baking in the United States became more popular in the “Great Depression” era, and, in an effort to save money, did their own home-baking rather than go to a bakery. Therefore, more cookie storage containers were needed, and more were made. In 1929, the Brush Pottery Company of Zanesville, Ohio, made what is believed to be the first ceramic cookie jar. This jar, called the Kolorkraft #344, was green with the word “Cookies” on the front. When this jar became popular, other pottery industries sprang up. Early cookie jars were very simple and had little or no decorations. However, it was not long before marketing departments became creative and added decorations to jars. Soon, jars had figures of people, fruits, vegetables, and even animal designs on the front. Almost all houses had cookie jars.

The “golden age” of American cookie jars was thought to be from 1940 to 1970. During those years cookie jar sales exploded. Among the leaders cookie jar manufacturer were McCoy Potteries and American Bisque, both of Williamstown, West Virginia. It was due to this tremendous output of cookie jars in the mid-1900s that led to collectors being keenly interested in collecting them. Many of the jars that were produced were

very short-lived, and therefore, are very scarce. Conversely, other jars are very common even today, and allows collectors to purchase them more affordably. Although the common ones are not as valuable as some of the vintage jars, many of them are very colorful and unique, and are great conversational pieces. Many of the vintage jars are even displayed in kitchens today. But as mentioned, cookie jars are popular among collectors. Of course, prices of cookie jars vary greatly. For example, a Kirk Alyn’s “Superman in Phone Booth” cookie jar from 1978 went for slightly over $300 in a Heritage auction.

An “Earthrise” cookie jar from 1970 went for over $800. Besides being very unique, it was from the personal collection of Astronaut Vance Brand. Undoubtedly, that added to the value of that particular jar. An extremely unique cookie jar was that of Roy Rogers and his horse. The jar was signed by Rogers at the base along with the words “Happy Trails”. It went for $900 at auction and would have gone higher except that it had been cracked and needed to be repaired.

As for more expensive collectible cookie jars, a very rare McCoy “red” squirrel cookie jar sold at auction for $4000. This jar is regarded by some as the most sought after classic cookie jar. Another McCoy jar, this one of a train went for $6100. This jar is in two shades of blue gloss, and has white smoke. There are only known to be 6 train engine jars with smoke. But even a more valuable cookie jar was the one of a cow’s head that went for a remarkable $18,000 at auction. This one was from around 1900 and was displayed on butcher counters. It is amazing what collectors will spend on items that they really want. With vintage cookie jars it is very possible that collectors are reminded of items that they had seen, or that their family had even owned. But please, if you ever see a vintage cookie jar, be careful that you do not get your hand caught in it.

Drug Treatment = Less Crime

In California, opioid and heroin use is a major threat to public health, and is the leading cause of death for those under 50. It’s a major cause of crime, and contributes directly to high recidivism rates in our prison system. That’s why I’ve introduced Assembly Bill 1304 (AB 1304), coauthored by Senator Tom Umberg (D – Santa Ana), which will provide Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) for eligible parolees who volunteer to participate. MAT is an innovative treatment program that uses medications combined with counseling and behavioral therapies to treat substance use disorders. Findings reported by the National Institute on Drug Abuse clearly show that providing criminal offenders with substance use treatment reduces drug abuse, crime and reincarceration. In addition, by following the prescribed MAT regimen, death rates from opioid overdoses can be cut by more than half.

Under AB 1304, incentives to participate in the program will include reductions in length of parole. Parolees will be screened, and only those deemed eligible will be

allowed into the program after they’ve served their prison sentences. A similar program was started In Kentucky in 2016, with proven results that include an overall drop in recidivism, along with reduced illegal drug and alcohol use. California’s costs will be minimal, since the program will be supported through a State Opioid Response Grant, provided by the federal Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration.

The costs associated with drug abuse are incalculable. Crime, homelessness, lost job productivity, broken families, suicides, are all part of the massive societal cost of drug abuse in our state and nation. We can help drug-addicted criminal offenders re-enter society as productive citizens by removing them from the cycle of addiction and dependency. In this time of huge budget deficits, we can also reduce the costly burden of recidivism on the state’s corrections system. Assembly Republican Leader Marie Waldron, R-Escondido, represents the 75th Assembly District in the California Legislature, which includes the communities of Bonsall, Escondido, Fallbrook, Hidden Meadows, Pala, Palomar Mountain, Pauma Valley, Rainbow, San Marcos, Temecula, Valley Center and Vista.

5th District Supervisor

Jim Desmond

Small Businesses &Non-Profits

I know that the last three months have been extremely difficult for small businesses and non-profits. While I’ve advocated to open up businesses in a safe manner, there is still a 15% unemployment rate, and that will rise with the latest round of closures in early July. In order to cope with these difficult times, San Diego County has created a small business/non-profit stimulus grant fund. The purpose of this fund is to provide economic assistance to help small businesses and nonprofit entities experiencing financial hardship due to the COVID-19 response.

If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to Candyce Yee of the District 5 team at Candyce.Yee@sdcounty.ca.gov. To the many businesses owners out there who are struggling, I’m fighting for you. I’ve heard from hundreds of San Diegans who aren’t sure how much longer they can get by. I hope this fund will help in the short term and I will continue to advocate for safely reopening.

For the application or other information please go to the website, www.sandiegocounty.gov/stimulusgrant/.

Eligible businesses include private for-profit and non-profit businesses with fewer than 100 employees including sole proprietorships and independent contractors, who are headquartered and operating in San Diego County.

District 5 will have a total of $3.4 million to allocate. The deadline to apply to is August 7 and funding may be exhausted after that time. Funds must be spent by December 30, 2020, per federal CARES Act requirments.

To contact North County Office – by appointment only 325 S. Melrose Ave., Suite 5200 Vista, CA 92081 Mon.-Fri., 8:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. Website: www.supervisorjimdesmond.com Email: Jim.Desmond@sdcounty.ca.gov

‘Course, if you don’t have a pool you might want to head up to Pala Casino and take a dip in their pool and experien ce their spa.

The only restaurants/food service that are closed at Pala are Choices, their wonderful buffet, the Oak Room and Sushi Sake. All other restuarants and bar services are open. Have a run at the slots, maybe video poker, other table games, hit the pool, work up an appetite, then try the delicious variety of foods. One of our favorite places to enjoy ourselves.

They have taken all safety precautions, practice safe distancing, all staff have masks, you must wear one was well, except when dining.

Was very pleased to see how successssful the Dinina al fresco in downtown Escondido went this past Friday evening. Had a pleasant chat with the alwayys jovial Mayor, “Mac” McNamara, and Hizzoner was beaming with a great big grin. Mayor Mac is a master at bringing people together and gaining a consensus as to how to solve a problem, whether it is city staff, members of the public, or merchants.

“We knew if this was gonna work we had to have the support of the restaurants,” he dold us. “So we went to the restaurant owners and asked them what they wanted. We consulted with Alex MacLachlane, who heads us the DBA. The restuarnatt owners and the DBA told us what they needed. We got with city staff, waived some fees and permits, got the various city departments on board . . and it all came together.” The merchants we talked to were delighted with the results, particularly since this was a first time effort.

One can only hope that (a) the grand experiment continues successfully, and (b) the county health department closure order for three weeks only lasts three weeks. (The first order was for three weeks; it wound up being three months. Our businesses are flexivle and crative, but they can only do so much. They need to be able to open, safely, within the three week programmed time. Let’s all hope that this pandemic is resolved quickly and safely and we can begin to live life that approaches normalcy once again . . or at least as close to normal as we can make it. This is some life we live!

Historically Speaking by Tom Morrow

1970 -- 50 Years Ago

The year 1970 was jammed with historic news. Below is but a few of the news stories that filled newspapers and airwaves. The Apollo 13 Calamity

The Apollo craft was launched from Kennedy Space Center on April 11, 1970, but the planned lunar landing was aborted after an oxygen tank in the service module (SM) failed two days into the mission. The crew instead looped around the Moon, and returned safely to Earth on April 17. The mission was commanded by Jim Lovell with Jack Swigert as command module (CM) pilot and Fred Haise as lunar module (LM) pilot. The crew performed an unbelieva b l e series of makes h i f t tasks to get back to earth.

n A investigative review board found fault with preflight testing of the oxygen tank and the fact that Teflon was placed inside it. The board recommended changes, including minimizing the use of potentially combustible items inside the tank; this was done for Apollo 14. The story of Apollo 13 has been dramatized several times, most notably in the 1995 film “Apollo 13,” starring Tom Hanks as Lovell.

Through innovation and a lot of luck the three returned safely to earth. It should be noted today’s average “smart” phone has more computerization power than the entire Apollo space craft had. Kent State Massacre Kills 4

The Kent State shootings (also known as the May 4 massacre or the Kent State massacre), were the shootings of 13 unarmed Kent State University students in Kent, Ohio, by the Ohio National Guard on May 4, 1970.

The killings took place during a peace rally against the expanding involvement of the Vietnam War into neutral Cambodia by United States military forces as well as the National Guard presence on campus. The incident marked the first time that a student had been slain in

an anti-war gathering in United States history.

Some 28 National Guard soldiers fired approximately 67 rounds over a period of 13 seconds, killing four students and wounding nine others. The fatal shootings triggered immediate and massive outrage on campuses around the country. More than 4 million students participated in organized walk-outs at hundreds of universities, colleges and high schools, the largest such strike in the history of the United States. The student strike of 1970 further affected public opinion at an already socially contentious time over the role of the United States in the Vietnam War. French hero Charles de Gaulle dies at 80

World War II French leader and hero to his countrymen French President Charles de Gaulle passed away at the age of 80 on Nov. 22, 1970. He was a French army officer and statesman who led the Free French Forces against Nazi Germany during World War II, and chaired the Provisional Government of the French Republic from 1944 to 1946, in London.

De Gaulle rewrote the Constitution of France and was elected President in 1958, a position he held until 1969. He was the dominant figure of France during the early part of the Cold War era; his memory continues to influence French politics. 59

Gypsy Rose Lee passes at

Noted vaudeville, burlesque, stripteaser, musical comedy star, author, film actress ,and playwright Rose Louise Hovick, better known as “Gypsy Rose Lee” died in Los Angeles at the age of 59, April 17, 1959.

She and her sister, film actress June Havoc, worked in their early life singing and dancing in burlesques and vaudeville but Louise’s singing and dancing talents were insufficient to sustain the act without June. Eventually, it became apparent Louise could make more money in burlesque, which earned her legendary status as an elegant and witty striptease artist. Initially, her act was propelled forward when a shoulder strap on one of her gowns gave way, causing her dress to fall to her feet despite her efforts to cover herself. Encouraged by the audience's response, she went on to make the trick the focus of her performance. Other headlines included:

The Beatles break up Right-to-vote goes to 18-year-olds George C. Scott wins Oscar for lead role in “Patton.” Cesar Chavez jailed for lettuce boycott Singer Janice Joplin dies from drug overdose

LEVEL PAY CAN MAKE SUMMER BILLS MORE CHILL.

Avoid higher summer energy bills with Level Pay. With more San Diegans staying at home this summer, energy costs could increase dramatically. That’s why the Level Pay Program makes a lot of sense – especially if you count on consistent monthly expenses. SDG&E® will average your annual bill over the last twelve months, so you pay about the same each month. It’s a simple way to avoid unexpectedly high summer bills. You can also go online for energy-saving tips to lower your bills all year long.

examines Covid-19 impact among Carlsbad industries. The Carlsbad Educational Foundation's (CEF) Student Leadership Council (SLC) adapted its annual Learning to Lead capstone project last month to an online video presentation due to Covid-19 restrictions. Students from Sage Creek and Carlsbad high schools who are part of the SLC developed an approximately 90minute video presentation, available on YouTube, that examines how five pillars of our community – first responders, nonprofits, businesses, government and education – were impacted from the coronavirus pandemic and how community leaders adapted and made difficult decisions to accommodate the County of San Diego’s Stay-at-home order and guidelines to social distance.

Who are you, really? Sometimes we define ourselves by what we have, or do, or wear, etc. Our culture likes to define us also… by our race, relationship status, or even our looks. Here are a few things that should NOT determine our identity.

1. Our “job”. The first question people ask is often “What do you do?”. However, our value is not based on occupation. Everyone has value… from the fast food worker to the physician. We’re all created in God’s image. 2. Our status in regard to a relationship. Our relationship with God determines who we are… not if we are married, single or somewhere in between. 3. Other people’s opinions. If we base who we are on what others

5. Money. Wealth is not a good measure either. Whether you have little or much, it’s not our identity. Some rich folks are poor and vice versa. 6. Education. I was raised to value college, degrees, etc. Since then, I’ve realized a degree is not the same as an education. I know lots of people without degrees who are wiser than I’ll ever be. 7. Race or Gender. These don’t define us either. Look deeper than skin color and see character. We’re unique and that is part of the beauty from a Creator. I love that Jesus does not measure people with any of the things we often do. He values everyone. I want to also. My love is not unconditional…God’s always is. I must be valuable to Him, though sometimes I really wonder why. God created me and I heard He doesn’t make junk! I’m thankful He determines my value. You?

A Weekly Message from the Mayor of Your Community published in the belief that it is important for elected leaders to communicate with their constituents and that constituents have a means of hearing from their elected leaders.

San Marcos • Mayor Rebecca Jones Clean and Green in North City

There’s so much to love about San Marcos’ downtown North City neighborhood – from its modern architecture and cool vibe to its water-wise plantings and energy-filled spaces. Yet there’s even more under the surface that makes this vibrant destination a hub for sustainability and innovation. Beneath the area’s iconic foodie-favorite eateries, creative mix of shops and relaxing outdoor spaces, a state-of-the-art green infrastructure sets North City’s Foundation. A high-tech stormwater management system is built-in under the sidewalks and medians. The City of San Marcos, in partnership with developer Sea Breeze Properties, installed 80 trees and 1,200 innovative devices called ‘Deeproot Silva Cells,’ (along with inlets and storm drains), which collect and filter rain and stormwater runoff. Special grates and soils designed for biofiltration help catch and treat water onsite and retain it to nourish the trees. The new technology increases water conservation and reduces the amount of treated water that’s needed for irrigation. It also helps keep San Marcos waterways clean by reducing the amount of runoff and pollution that flows into our creeks, streams and the ocean.

Escondido • Mayor Paul “Mac” McNamara Greetings Escondido,

As I mentioned last week, we (north county city electeds ad hoc homelessness committee, comprising of cities from Encinitas to Escondido) submitted a plan to the two North County Supervisors regarding our cooperative effort to reduce homelessness. If you recall from earlier articles, we originally focused on housing but now we are engaged on all the elements. Remember there are three elements to the solution – Housing, Social Services, Social Enterprise. If you are not familiar, Social Enterprise provides a “job” that helps transitions the individual back into society. So, the result of a lot of data collection and discussion was a three-point plan. First, create more additional short-term housing. Second, increase Entry-Level and Affordable Housing. Third, increase resources and create more effective intervention strategies for chronically homeless with severe Mental Illness to include Day Centers, Case Management, Supportive Services and Conservatorship. As you might imagine the three points are simply tips of icebergs that have a lot of detail under them. The good news is that we have had a very positive response from our two North County supervisors but there is still a lot of work to do. Stay informed, Be Kind, Remember your neighbor, and Stay safe! Semper Fi, Mac

Paul P. McNamara, Mayor of Escondido pmcnamara@escondido.org

deserves?" asked the father.

"I will concentrate on my studies," the young man replied, "God will provide for us." "And children?" asked the father. "How will you support children?" "Don't worry, sir, God will provide," replied the fiancé.

The conversation proceeded like this...and each time the father questioned, the young idealist insisted that God would provide. Later, the mother asked, "How did your talk go, honey?"

The father answered, "another Democrat, He has no job, he has no plans, and he thinks I'm God."

The Tomato Story An unemployed man is desperate to support his family of a wife and

three kids.

He applies for a janitor's job at a large firm and easily passes an aptitude test. The human resources manager tells him, "You will be hired at minimum wage of $5.35 an hour. Let me have your e-mail address so that we can get you in the loop. Our system will automatically e-mail you all the forms and advise you when to start and where to report on your first day."

Taken back, the man protests that he is poor and has neither a computer nor an e-mail address.

To this the manager replies, "You must understand that to a company like ours that means that you virtually do not exist. Without an e-mail address you can hardly expect to be employed by a high-tech firm. Good day." Stunned, the man leaves. Not knowing where to turn and having $10 in

Oceanside • Mayor Peter Weiss

The City has received a grant award from the San Diego County Department of Behavioral Health Services for the provision of sobering services in an annual amount of $166,000 for three years not to exceed $498,000.

The County’s grant matches the City’s allocation of $500,000 from Measure X funds toward homeless services and public safety.

The City has executed a contract with McAlister Institute of San Diego to provide services which includes receiving intoxicated individuals, provide clean clothing, a cot for up to 24 hours, and monitoring during sobering as well as follow up counseling, assessment, and referrals for continued services. The program will only accept individuals as referrals directly from the Oceanside Police Department to assist in public safety as well as assist in providing navigation for homeless individuals. This program is one more step in the City’s resolution to unsheltered homeless

his wallet, he walks past a farmers' market and sees a stand selling 25 lb. crates of beautiful red tomatoes. He buys a crate, carries it to a busy corner and displays the tomatoes. In less than 2 hours he sells all the tomatoes and makes 100% profit. Repeating the process several times more that day, he ends up with almost $100 and arrives home that night with several bags of groceries for his family.

During the night he decides to repeat the tomato business the next day. By the end of the week he is getting up early every day and working into the night. He multiplies his profits quickly. Early in the second week he acquires a cart to transport several boxes of tomatoes at a time, but before a month is up he sells the cart to buy a broken-down pickup truck

At the end of a year he owns three old trucks. His two sons have left their neighborhood gangs to help him with the tomato business, his wife is buying the tomatoes, and his daughter is taking night courses at the community college so she can keep books for him.

By the end of the second year he has a dozen very nice used trucks and employs fifteen previously unemployed people, all selling tomatoes. He continues to work hard.

Time passes and at the end of the fifth year he owns a fleet of nice trucks and a warehouse that his wife supervises, plus two tomato farms that the boys manage. The tomato company's payroll has put hundreds of homeless and jobless people to work. His daughter reports that the business grossed over one million dollars. Planning for the future, he decides to buy some life insurance.

Consulting with an insurance adviser, he picks an insurance plan to fit his new circumstances. Then the adviser asks him for his e-mail address in order to send the final documents electronically. When the man replies that he doesn't have time to mess with a computer and has no e-mail address, the insurance man is stunned, "What,

A seven question pop quiz from

THE COMPUTER FACTORY

HP, Lenovo, Dell and Apple are the worlds largest personal computer manufacturers. False: They are the major brands but only Lenovo is a manufacturer. The rest buy PCs from foreign manufacturers. Computers are like people, they just slow down as they get older. False: People do, but PCs don’t. If your PC slows down, something is wrong. It can be fixed.

I Can upgrade to Windows 10 without having to purchase a new Windows 10 operating system. True: As of this writing Microsoft still offers the free upgrade from Win7 or 8, but better hurry, it can’t last much longer. Paul & Nome Van Middlesworth, The Computer Factory

www. thecomputerfactory.net "San Diego's Best Computer Store 2015-2020" Union Tribune readers poll

PCs are like cars, It’s better to buy a new one before the old one’s repairs costs eat you alive. False: Unlike cars, PCs have almost no moving parts to wear out, and even those parts are not expensive.

The faster your PC is, the faster you can browse the Internet and stream content. False: Internet browsing and streaming speeds are functions of Internet service providers, not your computer. Windows 7 will continues to function even after Microsoft ended support in January of 2020. True: But Microsoft, applications makers, banks and Internet sites are beginning to deny access for Win 7.

A refurbished Dell or HP “Enterprise” model PC is better than a brand new Dell or HP “retail” model.

True: And typically it’s not even close, “Enterprise” PCs specifications are developed by the same professional ITs responsible for managing the networks. Their emphasis is on quality, reliability and performance. “Retail” PCs are sold to shoppers who have no way to judge quality, reliability or performance, only price. Retail PCs are cheaply made and loaded with paid advertisements.

How can the Computer Factory help your home or business?

Help you to identify your specific requirements and match them up with optimal PC configurations. Design and build custom PC work stations, (Gamers, Day Traders, Modelers, Video editing etc). Upgrade your existing PCs from Windows7/8 to Windows10 quickly and affordably. Provide high quality “enterprise” refurbs in any quantity or configuration. Set up and maintain your business or home network on site. Evaluate your old PCs for repair upgrade or trade-in.

THE RIGHT TO CARRY YOUR COUNTRY'S FLAG WHILE YOU PROTEST THAT YOU DON'T GET ENOUGH RESPECT AND, IN MANY INSTANCES, YOU CAN VOTE. From Jeff Foxworthy:

If a seven-year-old boy can be thrown out of school for saying his teacher is "cute" but hosting a sexual exploration or diversity class in grade school is perfectly acceptable — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots. If hard work and success are met with higher taxes and more government regulation and intrusion while not working is rewarded with Food Stamps, WIC checks, Medicaid benefits, subsidized housing, and free cell phones — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

If you pay your mortgage faithfully, denying yourself the newest bigscreen TV, while your neighbor buys iPhones, time shares, a wallsized do-it-all plasma screen TV and new cars, and the government forgives his debt when he defaults on his mortgage — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots. If being stripped of your Constitutional right to defend yourself makes you more "safe" according to the government — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

As the Foundation faces challenges ahead, it remains focused on providing educational excellence for every Carlsbad Unified School District student and committed to developing the next generation of leaders. About the Carlsbad Educational Foundation - The CEF is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, founded in 1983, to raise private support for public education and contribute to the enrichment of nearly 11,000 students in the Carlsbad Unified School District. Since its inception, the foundation has contributed more than $9 million in funds to Carlsbad public schools, primarily for science, technology, and music – programs that would not be possible in California’s current school funding environment. 100% of donations go directly to support the Carlsbad Unified School District because CEF’s operating expenses are covered by student enrichment programs and Kids Care, a comprehensive before and after-school K-5 childcare program.
