Volume 47 - No. 28

Editor’s Note: This is the second of a series dedicated to the late Kent Ballard, a good friend and brilliant writer. Kent died several weeks ago; a combination of cancer and pulmonary thrombosis. As you may have noticed from last week’s story by Kent Ballard, “The Last Flight” he was a master storyteller. Kent was one of my favorite writers.

As a tribute to Kent, and for those who knew and loved his writings as much as we did, and for those who have not yet discovered him, we present this, the second in a series of reprints of stories Kent wrote.

Like “The Last Flight,” this story will have you hanging on every word.

Again, please enjoy the work of a great writer, a good pal, a bit of a rascal, and a super human being, Kent Ballard:

I met Mike about six months ago. I didn’t know he was a volunteer fireman until just last week. We found ourselves with some time to kill and we began to talk.

Somehow, the conversation turned towards auto accidents. He said that although he’d been on many emergency runs to car wrecks, he’d never been in a serious one himself. I told him I had, and that he wasn’t missing anything. It was a bad joke.

Mike continued. At last count, he had been on the scene of thirty-seven fatal accidents. I stopped and let that soak in for a while. It explained a few things about the fellow, one being his utter hatred for anyone who would dare drink and drive. I could see how nearly forty fatal accidents would make a guy that way.

The Paper - 760.747.7119 The Paper - 760.747.7119 website:www.thecommunitypaper.com website:www.thecommunitypaper.com email: thepaper@cox.net email: thepaper@cox.net

He told me about things he’d seen personally that would give me nightmares for years. I’ve happened across a few accidents, some involving cars, some not. I always tried to help if I could, and managed to concentrate long enough to make a difference of a couple of times. But I always got the jitters later. I marvel at the men and women who can do this all the time, knowing when the next call comes in they’ll have to go out and experience it all again. I’m thankful that there are people like that, but I’m not one of them.

He described several of the terrible accidents, and explained the techniques that professionals use to extract accident victims and start immediate medical care. The “Golden Hour” starts at the moment of impact, and every second counts. Mike spoke with well-deserved pride about his crew and the equipment, training, and dedication that they bring to bear in the fight against death itself. Surprisingly often, they win— but other times nothing within the power of human beings is nearly enough. Obituaries Memorials Area Services Page 12

As he spoke, I could tell that one part of the job haunted him despite his best efforts to hide it. He was a father of three. His oldest son was driving now, and when he’d mention a wreck involving kids—he’d seen a few—a dark look crossed his face. I quietly told him that my boys were just starting to drive too. Like all teenagers, they think they’re invincible. He look up sharply, “Let me tell you, they’re not.”

He’d loaded enough of them onto back boards, crying for their parents, to know better. He paused for quite a while, then blinked a few times. “You know, you do a job like this and you think you’ve seen it all. You can’t think of it as anything but a job, otherwise it’d eat you alive. You just have to let it roll off, man. But there was this one wreck we were called to… this one wreck…” …and his voice and expression both changed. I’m quite sure that he wasn’t aware of it. Part of him was already somewhere else—another place, another very bad day. •••••• Two families were leaving a house, all of them going to a

social event at the local high school. The parents and kids from both families were all long-time friends. Just so they could continue their conversations, it was decided that the parents would all go in one car, the kids in another. A seventeen year old boy was driving the younger folks. Everyone in the little rural community where they lived knew the boy. He was a good kid, all agreed. Had a good head on his shoulders. The other parents were confident in his driving.

The two cars left the driveway and the teenager took the lead. His parents and his friend’s parents fell in behind them on the highway. They had a few miles to go before they got to the school. The weather was good. The roads were dry.

About four miles south of the small town where the school was located, there was what was known locally as a “bad hill.” You can find a deadly spot like this in almost every county in the nation. It’s where a combination of hills, curves, or poor road design all come together to

make driving suddenly, unexpectedly hazardous. They’re easy to spot by the multiple skid marks in the asphalt. The kids were northbound, approaching the hill. The parents were a couple of blocks behind. No cars were in between them on the lonely stretch of highway. Some said later that the boy might have been going a little too fast. Some said he wasn’t. It was never proven either way.

From behind, the father driving the second car saw his boy top the hill. As soon as the teenager reached the peak, his dad saw his brake lights come on suddenly. Then the car dipped over the other side of the hill and was lost from view.

At the bottom of the steep hill was a crossroads. A sixty-five foot semi-tractor trailer had stopped at the intersection. The driver carefully looked both ways and, seeing nothing, dropped into low and began to pull out onto the highway. He was blocking both sides of the

Great Religious Truths

During these serious and trying times, people of all faiths should remember these four great religious truths:

1. Muslims do not recognize Jews as God’s chosen people.

2. Jews do not recognize Christ as the Messiah.

3. Protestants do not recognize the Pope as the leader of the Christian world.

4. Mormons do not recognize each other at Mesquite, Las Vegas, Hooters or the Liquor Store.

road when the kid topped the hill. The trailer was heavily loaded and the driver had no speed built up yet. He gunned the engine for all it was worth, trying to get out of the way.

The seventeen year old driver looked down the hill and all he could see was a wall of steel and iron in front of him. He slammed the brake pedal and fought the wheel, looking frantically for a lane, a ditch, anyplace he could aim the car. There was nowhere to go. The massive trailer, still swinging out from the crossroads, had blocked everything. The boy fought it all the way in.

The car containing the parents had slowed down a little. The father driving knew his son had seen something from the hilltop. He backed off a few miles per hour. It was enough to make the difference for them. But when the second car came to the top of the hill, four horrified parents looked down to see the road blocked by a huge semi and the car containing their children--all of their children—skidding towards the truck, blue clouds of smoke

Big chunks of sheet metal and glass flew in all directions. And the parents saw every bit of it. ••••• Mike was on duty that day at the firehouse. An alarm went off, and his crew grabbed their personal gear and leaped aboard their assigned vehicle, Truck Four. The initial report was that a truck driver out on the south highway had made a garbled and half-hysterical call over his C.B. radio. He’d had enough presence of mind to switch to channel nine, the national emergency channel for the citizen’s band frequency. Most county sheriff ’s departments monitor channel nine, and there’s a dedicated band of radio enthusiasts known as REACT who assist them, monitoring the band for whatever emergency message that might be broadcast. The trucker’s plea for help was picked up and the authorities called. The sheriff had two cars en route and called the fire department. Over the police net, an Indiana state trooper reported he was close to the

scene and responding too. The emergency room at the county hospital was notified, alerted to stand by for trauma victims, no word on their condition—yet. Within minutes of the wreck a score of professionals were already in action, not a bad showing for a community of that size.

Mike was just picking up speed in the big fire truck when a call came over the radio. “Truck Four, what’s your 10-20?” Mike gave his location. The caller was one of the deputies responding to the accident. Mike had known him for years. The deputy called back. “I’ll hit the highway about a half-mile ahead of you. I’ll give you an escort, Four.” A second report came over the frequency. Apparently, the trucker rallied long enough to give them what information he could. It was nothing any of them wanted to hear. “Broadside into a semi…carload of kids…looks like a bad one…”

Ahead, Mike saw the deputy roar out onto the highway and burn rubber in the southbound The Blind Hill Cont. on Page 3

lane, With his friend clearing the way with a flying wedge of lights and sirens, Mike held the truck’s accelerator firmly to the floor. It was imperative that his rig got on scene as fast as humanly possible. Truck Four carried the all-important Hurst Tool, the mighty “Jaws of Life.” Countless hours spend practicing at a local auto junkyard had taught the crew how to tear a mangled car apart in minutes, freeing the victims from the metallic death-grip of their own cars. Mike knew that nothing made in Detroit, Germany, or Japan could withstand the thousands of pounds of lifesaving pressure the Hurst Tool generated. At any accident scene, the Jaws would save lives…if there was any life left to save.

The first speeding patrol cars were nearly there. The state trooper, approaching from the opposite side of the wreck, came on the air warning other rescue vehicles to slow down before they topped the hill. “You’ll be right on top of them! Back off before you hit the hill. I’m almost there. So far all I see is the semi. Wait, there’s something under the

Other cars arrived from three different sides. Mike saw the hill ahead and began to ease off the pedal. The deputy in front did the same, and they cautiously climbed their side. Mike noted the scent of burnt rubber and brake pads in the wind. No gasoline, thank God. Mike thought there might be hope for the kid yet. He’d seen no column of smoke either. Maybe there was still a chance. If the impact had been at an angle, maybe the car had ricocheted off. He’d seen it happen before. But when he topped the hill and looked down, he knew that no such luck had been with the children that day. Mike rolled his truck up beside the scene and pulled off in the ditch. Then he reached down and simply shut off the lights and siren. His crewmen jumped out and ran to the semi. The police officers were already doing what pitifully little they could for the parents. One look at the wreck told the whole story. The Hurst Tool was never even taken off the truck. They

wouldn’t be needing it today. Not even the Jaws of Life could have made a difference this time. What had happened here was over with in the wink of an eye. Four kids…

Their little car had hit the semi squarely in the middle. Their roof, outside mirrors, window glass, everything…had been sheared off at shoulder level. Mike had a sudden chill. He remembered another wreck where the emergency crews had to literally search for a missing human head. The bottom twothirds of the car had carried on a few feet and jammed tightly under the trailer. That was the only merciful thing about the affair. The parents couldn’t look inside the car to see…

The parents. The father driving had almost hit the semi himself. The only thing that saved his car was seeing his son’s brake lights, as if the boy’s final act had been to warn his dad of the danger ahead. They skidded to a stop just a few feet behind the remnants of the kid’s car. One man leaped out, ran to the wreck, and fainted dead away. When the police arrived, one of

the women was deep in shock, unable to give her name and apparently unsure of where she was. The other mother had already screamed herself hoarse and was now emitting only strangled, croaking barks. She’d already torn off her fingernails clawing at the sides of the semi.

Mike told me that the parents were the only ones loaded into the ambulance when it arrived. The hospital had already been notified that the kids wouldn’t be needing their services. Mike wondered aloud why the shock of seeing all of their children slaughtered in front of their eyes didn’t simply kill the parents then and there. “I guess you never know how you would react to something like that. God, I don’t ever want to find out.”

Mike was looking at a wall while he talked to me. Or was he? He seemed to be looking at things I couldn’t see. I was grateful for my blindness to the scene. “We got three of them into the ambulance without much trouble,” he muttered. “One of the guys—he was the father of the boy The Blind Hill Cont. on Page 5

On July 14th at 2:48 a.m., a Police Officer for the City of Carlsbad Police Department attempted to stop a black Mercedes Benz for a traffic violation on southbound Interstate 5 at Las Flores in Carlsbad, California. The vehicle failed to stop and a pursuit ensued. The vehicle continued southbound Interstate 5, exited Cannon Road, and continued eastbound Cannon Road at a high rate of speed. The vehicle eventually stopped in the 3900 block of Cannon Road where a white male and white female were taken into custody. A search of the vehicle revealed stolen property. The driver was identified as Richard Benedict from San Diego, a 36 year old white male. He was arrested for a felony violation of failure to yield to an emergency police vehicle, a felony warrant, possession of stolen property, and possession of burglary tools.

The passenger was identified as Kayla Dwyer from Santee, a 20 year old white female. She was arrested for possession of stolen property, burglary tools, and burglary.

Both subjects were transported to the Vista Detention Facility where they were booked. An investigation into the stolen property is ongoing. Structure Fire in Escondido

A Proper Farewell . . .

Last week's cover story, "The Last Flight," was a tribute to its author, Kent Ballard, who died on July 1st. This week’s cover story . . . “The Blind Hill,” written by Kent Ballard, is a continuation of that tribute.

If you read The Paper on a regular basis you know I absolutely loved Kent and his writings.

I talked to Kent's widow, Tess, last Wendesday . . . and learned of the arrangements for the disposition of his cremains. It is truly Kentonian . . . Ballardian . . . Kent Ballardian. He would heartily approve and have a good chuckle in the process.

Tess told me she received Kent's ashes two days ago. They will scatter his ashes on their 70 acre property in Indiana . . near the fishing pond he fre-

The home was undergoing renovation and was vacant at time of fire. There were no injuries to firefighter’s or civilians. In all, four fire engines, one truck, one rescue ambulance and one Battalion Chief responded to the fire.

The cause of the fire is under investigation. Downtown Escondido Looks Toward Condos and Parking Plan

A parking garage in downtown Escondido? And over 200 condominiums? It could happen. Plans have been submitted to the city of Escondido calling for a likely transformation of downtown Escondido into an area where people both live, shop and work. A proposed four-story parking garage is suggested as a public parking amenity and would be located at 2nd and Kalmia. Nearby, a six-story condominium complex is envisioned along West Valley Parkway just east of Maple Street, with access to both City Hall and the California Center for the Arts.

Another residential facility is planned for the now vacant Escondido Surgery Center at 2nd Avenue and South Ivy Street. This is seen as a four-story building with 95 condo units. Merriam Mountains aka Newland Sierra Back in the News

quented . . . and where he often did battle with turtles (which he hated cause they ate a lot of his fish).

When the funeral director came to make the necessary arrangements, he said to Tess, "you know, Tess, I don't normally tell my regular clients this . . . but I knew Kent and his love for weapons . . . and I see a lot of weapons here in the house. I reload cartridges (he has a large area of property on which is located a shooting range; he is a gun aficionado, as was Kent). I wonder if you'd like me to load some cartridges with some of Kent's ashes. When they hold a 21 gun salute for Kent . . .his ashes will be fired into the air."

Tess loved the idea, knowing Kent would have loved it as well.

In addition, she made arrangement for some extra cartridges for those occasions when she and or/her neighbors would want to terminate more of those pesky turtles in Kent's pond. (Kent used to take target practice on basking turtles; he absolutely hated them. I don't care to shoot animals for no reason . . . even for meat . . . but I'm not Kent and I didn't have to pay for all the fish and the pond . . .).

Knowing Kent I'm picturing him sitting comfortably on a cloud, looking down upon us mere mortals and having a hearty laugh at all the arrangements to suit his departure from this planet.

They also argue there would be 28,862 new car trips, and a 36 % cut to existing residents water supply. They further argue that the developer would be building in a very high fire hazard zone.

“We see a condemnation of properties to widen roads, noise from 10 years of construction, grading blasting and rock crushing, years of silica dust in the air, a regular traffic nightmare,” says Rob Peterson, president of the Association.

Both Abed and City Manager Jeff Epp appear to be enthusiastic about the project, feeling it will solve a lot of the downtown parking problems and help create a whole new vibrant neighborhood.

If you haven't already . . . go read last week’s cover story . . ."The Last Flight." It will be one of the best stories you've ever read and I guarantee it will touch your heart. Maybe even bring a tear or two. As Paul Van Middlesworth, a big, rough, tough Marine, said recently, "this is about the fourth or fifth time I've read this story . . . and it still brings a tear to my eyes." And don’t miss this week’s cover story either . . . another masterpiece by Kent.

North County Cities Moving Away from SDG&E to Community Choice Aggregator?

Ry Rivard, of the Voice of San Diego had been studying Climate Change and the possibility of more and more cities moving away from SDG&E into a CCA (Community Choice Aggregator). Sempra Energy, parent company of SDG&E, is not too happy about this shift in thinking and probably revenue.

State and local governments are trying to fight climate change, even if the federal government won’t. Since fossil fuel-fired electricity is a major source of greenhouse gases, these governments all seek to curb the use of coal and gas.

California has several laws aimed at combating climate change. They require power companies to get 50 percent of their power from renewable sources, like wind and solar, by 2030.

The city of San Diego has its own Climate Action Plan. It has made the mayor a star across the country. The plan is far more ambitious than the state’s. The city wants 100 percent of electricity sold within city limits to come from renewable sources by 2035. Natural gas would still come to homes for heating and cooking.

After six years we decided to let someone else save the world so we handed over the reins to a group of wonderful dedicated people, most of whom were from San Marcos. Caballeros continued until just last month.

A change in the culture, in lifestyles of kids . . . insurance costs . . . all contributed to the closing of the doors.

Kids have cellphones and text back and forth . . . they play soccer . . . they don’t need to go on hikes on Saturday, or fly airplanes . . .where we used to take 20-30 kids on adventures on Saturdays the number has now dropped to 5-10 kids. This discourages volunteers who become reluctant to dedicate a Saturday to such a small group. Insurance costs ran $100 per adventure so it got to be a no-win situation.

The Caballeros board voted to disband and to turn over its assets to the Interfaith Community Center who will dedicate those assets to one of its youth diversion programs.

This hits home particularly hard for me as last night, Roberto Martinez, one of our early members of Caballeros, now a 35 year old very successful young man, called us to say he was coming by the house for a visit . . . and he was bringing dinner! He brought along El Pollo Loco chicken and all the fixings and we sat around the dining room table and we recalled the memories of Caballeors.

When the police arrived he was still pulling on the back bumper of his son’s car and screaming the boy’s name. He was literally trying to drag the car out from underneath the semi with his bare hands. It took four men to pull him away. Four big men. When they finally broke his grip and wrestled him into the ambulance, “Well, I’ve never seen a human being—man, woman, or child—cry as hard as that man did. He just put his face in his hands and howled. Good lord, man, it tore us all up. Just tore us up.” One of the deputies and a couple of the ambulance crew rode to the hospital with the parents. After they left there was still work to be done. A wrecker was summoned, a roadblock was arranged, and finally someone made the call they all dreaded: the county coroner was

informed that he would be needed out at the blind hill on the south highway. Again.

The semi driver was unhurt, at least physically, and a deputy offered him a ride into town. No charges were filed. The men felt pity for him, too. He couldn’t stop crying either. He refused to go to the hospital. He said he couldn’t look at those parents again.

They hadn’t even been aware of him during their hysteria. It was as if he’d been invisible.

All they could see was the mangled wreck under his truck. The wrecker arrived, and after a brief inspection it was decided the only thing to do was drag the car back out the way it went in. The driver hitched up to the wreck, shifted into gear, and pulled. Nothing happened. The car was jammed so tightly under the semi that all he could do was spin his wheels. One of the firemen suggested letting the air out of the car’s tires to lower it. The deputies and one of the firemen did just that, and the wrecker tried again. This time the car slowly backed out,

grinding and screeching against the underside of the trailer.

Strong men averted their eyes and began to take deep, slow breaths. They knew what they had to do. The ambulance crew had left them a supply of body bags.

“The car cleared the semi. The driver pulled it about ten feet away from the trailer. We were all standing back a little way, just in case something would snag, break off, and go flying. The driver stopped and, well, we knew we’d have to look sooner or later.” Mike stopped speaking to me for a moment, as if the wall projecting his mental image and had suddenly shown him something he still couldn’t believe. His voice became a flat, haunted monotone…but there was wonder in his eyes.

Then Mike looked directly at me. “Do you know what happened?”

Unable to guess anything from his eerie expression, I simply said, “No.” “Four kids sat up and brushed broken glass off of themselves. The boy

who had been driving stood up in his seat and jumped over the side of his car, out through where the roof had been. He walked up to the first cop he saw and said, “Hi! What took you guys so long?”

My jaw dropped, “WHAT?” ••••• The boy saw there was no way to stop in time. As the semi loomed closer, he saw that his car might go under it. He screamed for the other kids to get down, to hit the floor. At the last second he released the wheel and dove for the floor boards himself. There was a flash and a helluva bang and they were all thumped hard, but he had managed to slow them down enough where no bones were broken in the impact.

They screamed and yelled for a while. It was later decided that no one could hear them due to the hysterical screaming of the parents. After a while the air became stale inside the trapped passenger compartment—what was left of it—and they wisely stopped yelling. There was a litThe Blind Hill Cont. on Page 6

The Blind Hill Cont. from Page 4 tle panic at first, understandably, but what everyone said about the boy was correct. He was a good kid. Had a good head on his shoulders. He calmed the rest of the youngsters, told them to hang on. “They’re coming,” he assured them.“They’re coming. They won’t leave us here.” And they didn’t.

The cop stared at the kid in goggle-eyed disbelief, as if a grave had suddenly opened and the corpse started chatting with him. None of the men moved. None of them could believe what they were seeing. These kids were dead, and yet there they were, rubbing their eyes and blinking at the bright sunlight. One by one they climbed out of the shattered car under their own power, shaking beads of safety glass out of their hair and clothing.

Then the spell broke, and the men at the scene remembered their training. The kids were swarmed from all sides by men who began giving them professional first-aid examinations, men who were hugging and kissing them, good men who were weeping with joy. After a few minutes, the seventeen year old driver took a long look at his car. The reality of the thing was just beginning to hit him. “Geez,” he moaned to a deputy, “My dad’s gonna kill me.”

The deputy had just minutes earlier helped pry the griefstricken father’s hands from the boy’s bumper. He had helped half-drag, half-carry the man into the ambulance. He’d tried unsuccessfully to shut he ears to the father’s heart rending cries. The deputy laid his hand on the boy’s shoulder. “No, son. Your dad won’t do that. Believe me.”

The kids were loaded into a police cruiser for the tip to the hospital. They were being taken to a reunion. Before they left, the young driver looked around at all the debris, the mangled car, the battered semi. It was all coming home for him and the other kids. They began to understand just how close they’d came, and why their rescuers had looked so strangely at them. “I don’t…I can’t…uhh… thanks, you guys.” Only then did

the boy realize that he and the others had been given up for dead. He paled, but managed to shake the hands of every man present before getting into the cruiser.

A deputy radioed the hospital and asked for the officer who had rode with the parents into town. The officer came on the air and asked what he could do. The deputy at the wreck scene looked at the cruiser pulling away with four healthy kids in it. “You’re not going to believe this, but…” And a minute later the officer burst into the emergency room where the heartbroken parents were huddled. “I’ve got some good news for you folks…” •••••• Editor’s Note: Rest in Peace, old chum.

Your brightened my days and nights many times with the pleasurable task of reading your stories.

You were somebody very special to me and to a host of other writers, family and friends. It’s been a privilege to know you.

Kent Ballard - RIP

Man About Town Cont. from Page 6

Robert told us .. “I’d like to volunteer on Saturdays. What you and Evelyn did for me and my family . . . I’d like to pay back. Had it not been for Caballeros I would not be where I am today. I’d like to help young kids just as you helped me and my brothers (Gera and Mark).”

This prompted my call to Lynn Murphy, who lives in San Marcos . . . and it was from her that I learned the sad news. It was a wonderful six years and we had some wonderful accomplishments.

The Escondido City Council recognized several of our Caballero families as being outstanding citizens, serving their community. Kids got to go on adventures they otherwise could not afford, got to fly real airplanes - often taking the controls while flyhing in the co-pilots seat (once we were airborne) we went to the ocean, the beach, to Scripps Aquarium, Point Loma . . . Palomar Mountain . . . all kinds of hiking trails . . . and we had a community of loving, affectionate kids who had no time nor inclination for gangs.

Luring people back to fishing

As you know, I am an outdoors enthusiast, and that enthusiasm includes fishing. Anything we can do to get people out of doors, especially our kids, will lure people away from electronic distractions and expose more people to the outdoors.

This session I am a very proud co-author of Senate Bill 187 (SB 187), introduced by Senator Tom Berryhill (R – Twain Harte). Beginning January 1, 2020, the bill will make sport fishing licenses valid for 12 months from the date of purchase, rather than expiring on December 31st regardless of when you bought it during the year.

There has been a significant decline in the number of fishing licenses purchased in California in recent years. California fishing licenses cost $47.01 per year, with a $14.61 additional rod addon, making our fishing license fees the second-highest in the nation. This can be a significant deterrent for families purchasing It was the best of times. I founded Los Caballeros de Aventura as a direct result of a fatal drive by shooting . . . two weeks in a row. The first week upset me . . . the second week, when a five year old boy was killed, upset me to the point that I decided someone had to do something to keep kids from joining gangs and killing each other . . . as well as any hope they and their families had for their futures.

The answer appeared to be that when most of us grew up we were so busy doing chores or having fun with family and friends that we didn’t have time nor the inclination to form, or join, gangs.

Ergo . . Caballeros came to be. We had events every Saturday for the kids and they loved it! As did we. As did their families. But times change. As do cultures.

Thanks to all the volunteers who helped make Los Caballeros such a success . . . thanks to all the kids that brightened my and Evelyn’s life just by having the chance to get to know you and your beautiful families . . . and thanks to city and county authorities for working with us to make such a successful program.

Could Los Caballeros be ressurected? I dunno. Interesting thought though, isn’t it? ••••• So after 2 hours and 43 minutes we arrived at the Quechan Casino/Resort Hotel near Yuma, Arizona. I parked the car and went inside as I had some business to take care of with their Marketing Director . . . but first, I decided to visit the restroom to "make

fishing licenses for several children and adults, especially since many buy their licenses in the summer. Making the licenses valid for an entire year from the date of purchase could be the bait that lures families back to fishing.

I am happy to report that SB 187 is sailing through the Legislature with unanimous support. The bill passed the Senate on May 31, and the Assembly Water Parks & Wildlife Committee on June 27. It is currently in the Assembly Appropriations Committee, with the next step being the Assembly floor for a final vote.

It is my hope that final passage and enactment of SB 187 will encourage more people to buy fishing licenses since they will be valid for an entire year from the date of purchase.

Assemblymember Marie Waldron, REscondido, 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. tinkle" as we show biz folk say. My son, Kenny, had the same idea and he headed for the loo' a few minutes before I did.

When I arrived in that hallowed hall I thought it strange. I had never been in a restroom before with no urinals. But, also as we show biz folk say, "when in Rome . . ."

I did a perfectly marvelous job of going tinkle, washed my paws, and left the restroom . . . as I did, I looked across the foyer and saw my son, Kenny, exiting the restroom. Then it hit me.

The reason there were no urinals was because I had inadvertently gone into the women's restroom!

As I think back over the many years I have trod this planet I can't remember ever having done that before. First time for everything.

As far as I know, there were no women in the restroom stalls. May have been but, if so, I didn't see them, they didn't see me. No harm. No foul.

But kind of mentally embarrassing anyway.

night in 1914 to claim 500 available seats, according to local newspaper accounts. They witnessed an event Sunset magazine described as "A Pageant in the Wilderness." The review went on to call it "one of the most remarkable outdoor pageants in all of California."

The fabled pageant with 40 fully-costumed actors and full orchestra was created and staged by artist Isaac Frazee. In the background of the 160-acre park-like setting was the castle home that he had built in 1893 for his wife and seven children. Frazee, who years earlier had painted the first known watercolor of Laguna Beach, attracted the attention of a growing art colony in the Orange County community, and he subsequently was invited to move his pageant. That occurred in 1921. Frazee died in 1942 but left volumes of memoirs and photos behind, most of which are at the Valley Center History Museum which also has a permanent exhibition of the Old Castle. The unique home remains a private residence. The museum is open Tuesdays through Saturdays from 12 noon to 4 p.m. Admission is free. For more information, visit vchistory.org or call 760.749.2993.

If you think George Washington was the U.S. President, you’d be wrong. Our first President was a Maryland merchant by the name of John Hanson, who was elected as President of the United States by Congress in 1781.

his own money He was in Frederick County making gunlocks, storing powder, guarding prisoners, raising money and troops, dealing with Tories (loyalists to the crown), and doing myriad other tasks which went with being chairman of the committee of observation.

When Hanson was elected to Congress, Maryland was holding up the ratification of the Articles of Confederation. On Nov. 5, 1781, Congress elected Hanson as president of the Continental Congress. Other names were: president of the Congress of the Confederacy or president of Congress. Under the Articles of Confederation, the United States had no executive branch; the president of Congress was a mostly ceremonial position, but the office did require Hanson to handle a good deal of correspondence and sign official documents.

Hanson found the work tedious and considered resigning after just one week, citing his poor health and family responsibilities. Colleagues urged him to remain because Congress at the moment lacked a quorum to choose a successor. The Maryland Assembly reelected him as a delegate on Nov. 28, 1781, and so Hanson continued to serve as president until Nov. 4, 1782.

On July 9, 1781, Samuel Johnston became the first man to be elected as president of Congress after the ratification of the Articles. He declined the office, however, perhaps to make himself available for North Carolina's gubernatorial election.

John Hanson was born sometime in April 1721. He was a merchant and public official from Maryland during the era of the American Revolution. In 1779, Hanson was elected as a delegate to the Continental Congress after serving in a variety of roles for the Patriot cause in Maryland. He signed the Articles of Confederation in 1781 after Maryland finally joined the other states in ratification.

In November 1781, he was elected as President of the United States in Congress Assembled, and became the first president (third overall) to serve a one-year term under the provisions of the Articles of Confederation. While George Washington is recognized by historians as the first President of the United States, since he began serving when the current United States Constitution went into effect in 1789, some biographies of Hanson have made arguments that he was actually the first holder of the office of president since he began serving following the first election for a full one-year presidential term once the Articles of Confederation was ratified in 1781. When relations between Great Britain and the colonies became a crisis in 1774, Hanson became one of Frederick County's (Maryland) leading Patriots. With the other delegates, he signed the Association of Freemen on July 26, 1775, which expressed hope for reconciliation with Great Britain.

With hostilities underway, Hanson assumed responsibility for recruiting and arming soldiers, Hanson proved to be an excellent organizer, and Frederick County sent the first southern troops to join George Washington's army. Because funds were scarce, Hanson frequently paid soldiers and others with

After Johnston turned down the office, Thomas McKean was elected.McKean served just a few months, resigning in October 1781 after hearing news of the British surrender at Yorktown. Congress asked him to remain in office until November, when a new session of Congress was scheduled to begin. It was in that session that Hanson began to serve his one-year term. A highlight of Hanson's term was when George Washington presented Cornwallis's sword to Congress.

Hanson retired from public office after his one-year term as president of Congress. In poor health, he died on Nov. 15, 1783, while visiting Oxon Hill Manor in Prince George's County, Maryland, the plantation of his nephew Thomas Hawkins Hanson. He was buried there. Hanson owned at least 223 acres of land and 11 slaves at the time of his death. Tom Morrow's books are available at Amazon.com in soft-cover or via Kindle E-mail. FICTITIOUS BUSINESS NAME STATEMENT

This presentation will give fans a behind the scenes look at the film’s creation, and an overview of his full career.

Of the three major utilities in California, SDG&E is leading the way in complying with state renewable energy goals. Today, 43 percent of SDG&E’s electricity comes from renewable resources and the company has rid its energy portfolio of coal.

If SDG&E isn’t willing or able to meet the city’s goals, city officials have a Plan B written into the Climate Action Plan: They might start buying power themselves, from someone other than SDG&E. This kind of power buying is known as community choice aggregation, and the city would become a community choice aggregator. Both phrases are abbreviated CCA and are here to stay, but they’re

Ivanka is pet of the week at your Rancho Coastal Humane Society. She’s a 4-1/2 year old, 72 pound, Siberian Husky / German Shepherd mix.

Ivanka loves people, other dogs, and tummy rubs. She needs an active family that will make sure she gets physical and mental exercise. She was originally transferred to Rancho Coastal Humane Society from another shelter through the FOCAS program.

The $145 adoption fee for Ivanka includes medical exam, vaccinations, spay, and microchip. For more information call 760-753-6413, visit Rancho Coastal Humane Society at 389 Requeza Street in Encinitas, or log on to SDpets.org.

daunting and cumbersome.

What is community choice aggregation? In short, rather than SDG&E finding and buying power, the job would be transferred to San Diego City Hall.

Community means the government. Community choice actually means “government choice.” This means San Diego city staff or a new agency created by the city. Since other cities in San Diego County are also thinking about buying their own power, a number of cities could create a new regional agency to buy power.

For the purposes of the Climate Action Plan, the city would choose to buy green energy. Second, customers have a choice. When the government begins buying power, every SDG&E customer in the city The organization is making plans to celebrate the 250th birthday of the United States. It was reported that Honorary President General, Lynn Forney Young, was appointed to the Semiquincentennial Commission joining 8 members of Congress, 9 Federal officers, and 15 additional private citizens. A check for $380,000 was presented to the National Park Service for the planting of seventy six trees in Independence National Historic Park over the next few years so they will be established trees at the time of the 250th anniversary.

would automatically get sent that power instead of SDG&E’s. But customers could choose to opt out of the government program and continue getting power from SDG&E. Customers would do that if, for instance, SDG&E’s power was cheaper.

Aggregator/Aggregation

This word is almost unnecessary, but here’s why it’s there: Since the power bought by the government would likely come from a variety of sources, the power sources would be pooled together – an aggregation of community-chosen power. Will SDG&E go out of business?

No. Here’s the hardest thing to understand: SDG&E doesn’t make money selling electricity. It makes its money delivering

stomach medications and antibiotics. Aaron’s treatment protocol intensified, eventually leading to a bone marrow transplant to save his life. Today, Aaron is ten months post transplant. It’s been a life changing year for my son and me,” says his mother, Tammy, “but Aaron is amazing, as are most cancer patients. It is comforting to know that there’s a treatment plan. That plan was created due to research, and your donations

electricity.

Look at a sample power bill. This becomes clearer: There’s a charge for electricity generation. This is the electricity itself, three-quarters of which SDG&E buys from other companies and resells without a markup. There are also charges for distribution and transmission. That’s where SDG&E gets its gravy, from guaranteed profits on the sprawling system of lines it’s built over the last century to deliver power to its customers.

If the city starts buying power, SDG&E continues to run the delivery system and continues to profit from delivering power.

pray for him. “What do you want me to pray for?” she replied. He then uttered the request he had carried thousands of miles: “Clarity. Pray that I have clarity.”

Pastor Sam Brumit Mission 316, San Marcos, Ca. Clarity vs. Trust

I have spent a lot of years seeking to know God’s will for my life. I love it when God clearly speaks to me. I wish God would just text me the answers to all my questions or send me a daily email of instructions. He doesn’t. Understanding the difference in clarity and trust is essential. Brent Manning shared a story that helped me with the whole “clarity” thing. He wrote:

“When John Kavanaugh, the noted and famous ethicist, went to Calcutta, he was seeking Mother Teresa … and more. He went for three months to work at “the house of the dying” to find out how best he could spend the rest of his life. When he met Mother Teresa, he asked her to

“No,” Mother Teresa answered, “I will not do that.” When he asked her why, she said, “Clarity is the last thing you are clinging to and must let go of.” When Kavanaugh said that she always seemed to have clarity, the very kind of clarity he was looking for, Mother Teresa laughed and said: “I have never had clarity; what I have always had is trust. So I will pray that you trust God.”

Sure, I find that when life is confusing and doesn’t go the way I think it should, I long to “figure things out.” In the Bible, a guy named Abraham didn’t have clarity. He did have “faith.” He believed God and it was enough to change his faith.

He understood (as we must) “Faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see” (Hebrews 11).

Giving up control means yielding the need for clarity and choosing to believe. Trust means holding onto God when nothing else makes sense. Ready to trade clarity for trust?

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."

Phishing Phun

The practice of misrepresenting facts or identity in order to unlawfully gain information or money using electronic media (computers, smart phones, tablets) is called Phishing. When using voice communication (telephone) to initiate contact it is known as “Vishing.” These exploits use “social engineering” to trick their victims into providing money or information. They typically falsely impersonate “trusted sources” like government agencies, utility companies, banks or service providers (like Microsoft), your ISP or your Email service. Phishers use fear, greed, love, hate, loneliness, empathy, trust etc to get their victims to cooperate. Phishers broadcast their bait to thousands or even millions of

A gentleman brought his notebook PC in complaining that he had paid his fine but the FBI was still holding on to his computer. We booted it up and sure enough, his computer was locked on an FBI wanted poster with his mug shot. The notice accused him of committing one or more crimes from a laundry list of infractions that included stealing copywrited material and downloading child porn. They stated that his infractions would be cleared, his computer released and his record purged if he paid a $300 fine by money card within 72 hours. If he did not comply, a federal warrant would be issued for his arrest and he would be subject to a $5000 fine and up to five years in federal prison. He bought the money card and gave them the authorization number but they never released his PC. By the time he brought it to us, he knew he’d been had.

After an hour of holding the phone while watching them manipulate her PC they informed her that she must pay them $199 by credit card. She told them she thought this was a free Microsoft service. They told her that if she didn’t pay, she would not be able to use her PC. Reluctantly she authorized the payment on her Visa card. About 15 minutes later, as she watched the technicians continue to “work” on her PC, she got an incoming call. “This is Visa and we want to ask you about some unusual activity on your credit card.” They told her that her card was being used to make small purchases in several countries. She asked if there was a recent $199 charge and they said yes. The Visa representative recommended that she dispute the charges and immediately cancel the card. They would mail her a

“When those phony Microsoft techs finished with my computer it worked just fine. Those crooks had no idea that they weren’t getting paid that day,” she cackled. I asked her how long ago this all happened and she told me it was about a month. I asked her if she got her new Visa card and she said, “now that you mention it, I don’t think it has come yet.” I started to shake my head. She looked at me and turned pale. “Oh my god” she said putting both hands to her face, “that wasn’t really Visa was it, it was them.” She bolted from the store to go take care of cancelling her card. These clever crooks had figured out a way to keep their victims from actually cancelling the card and disputing the charges until they had safely stolen the money and had continued use of the card. Pretty clever.

“We’re not challenging them, there’s a partnership that would benefit everybody,” said Nicole Capretz, one of the architects of the city’s Climate Action Plan who’s now executive director of the nonprofit Climate Action Campaign. Every customer would still get bills with SDG&E’s logo atop them. The difference would be the one line on the bill about electricity generation. That rate would be dictated by the city’s power costs rather than by SDG&E’s.

Also, as its name indicates, San Diego Gas & Electric is in two separate businesses. Even though the Climate Action Plan mandates the end of gas-fired electricity, that doesn’t affect natural gas used for things like heating homes or powering ovens and water heaters. You can keep your gas oven. Will the electricity be cheaper? This is a big unknown.

Are SDG&E and Sempra trying to thwart the city? City officials have yet to say for sure if they will start their own power-buying operation. They are still waiting on a technical and economic study of their options. Once that comes out, likely this spring, a City Council vote could happen by the end of the year.

Though it expressed doubts about the city’s gas-free goals, SDG&E says it supports community choice. Three years ago, Sempra lobbied city officials in support of a state bill that would have hurt community choice.

One of Los Angeles’ city fathers, William Mulholland, waded into a fight over whether private interests or the public should control water and power from projects that eventually made Southern California livable for millions of people. When he started at the city, water was controlled by private interests; when he left, water and newly available hydroelectricity – the renewable energy of its time – were both in the hands of the public.
