Volume 49 - No. 33

By Friedrich Gomez

It is still the early predawn hours in 1937, a mild 65 degrees outside, and Red Skelton is sitting comfortably in his hotel room in New York City flipping the pages of his newspaper. He just read the musical reviews of a new dance band that debuted with high hopes of making it big someday. The music group failed miserably on the East Coast and disbanded.

Skelton likes the fighting spirit of the bandleader who vowed not to give up and would try again. The orchestra leader goes under the name of Glenn Miller and he made good on his resolve: he would, one day, rerecord the huge musical-hit “In the Mood” which would rule the charts for a staggering 13 straight weeks. Skelton’s interest in the young upstart, Glenn Miller, is two-fold: Glenn Miller’s never-give-upattitude resonated deeply with

Red Skelton’s own career as a struggling burlesque and vaudeville entertainer. Secondly, aside from his stage performances, Skelton is very musical-minded and would, in time, compose over 8,000 songs and symphonies, himself – a relatively unknown fact during the course of his lifetime. There was much about Red Skelton that the world never knew.

He reads further news. Franklin D. Roosevelt has begun his second term as President of the United States; a painter by the name of Pablo Picasso is making noise in the art world and starting to get a lot of attention in France, and tragedy has struck close when the German airship, the Hindenburg, explodes into horrific flames over Lakehurst, New Jersey, making 1937 world headlines and

appearing in movie-theatre newsreels around the country. Skelton shakes his head in disbelief. Despite the fact that Skelton dropped out of school at a very early age, he would make up for lost ground by becoming an avid reader in the dailies as well as trade papers of the entertainment world. He was an extremely intelligent man on and off the stage. He reads more. A most sensitive area of news is the financial page because it harkens back to the years of his own abject poverty. What he is now reading causes his face to grimace as it often did when confronting uncomfortable facts -the 1937 cost of living seems to be going through the roof. He reads that the cost of a new home has skyrocketed to $4,100. Average cost for just renting a house has now reached an exorbitant $26 per month; a simple loaf of bread will set you back a full 9-cents, and gas prices for your automobile have zoomed up to a ridiculous 10-cents a gallon with no end in sight. Tossed into this maddening economic downswing is that the average man’s wages for an entire year’s work is a paltry $1,780.

Give Us This Day Our Daily Chuckle This week, a compendium of wit, wisdom and neat stuff you can tell at parties. Enjoy!

The judge says to a double-homicide defendant, "You're charged with beating your wife to death with a hammer."

A voice at the back of the courtroom yells out, "You bastard!" The judge says, "You're also charged with beating your motherin-law to death with a hammer."

The voice in the back of the courtroom yells out, "You rotten bastard!" The judge stops and says to Paddy in the back of the courtroom.

"Sir, I can understand your anger and frustration at these crimes, but no more outbursts from you, or I'll charge you with contempt. Is that understood?"

As he reads about this dismal economic picture, he shifts his weight and recalls how he at one time barely had the finances to eat, drink, or have shelter. As he expresses in his own words: “Acts would come up to my room. We’d throw a quarter on the bed, a dime, or whatever we had and we’d go out and buy food.” Living in hotel rooms for Skelton was anything but the glamorous life of show business. As he recalls: “And we had a cooker that we’d sit on two bricks – then, we’d take a drawer out of the dresser and turn it upside down on the backs of two chairs and use that as a table. If the hotel manager smelled food – we’d quickly put the cooker outside on the fire escape!” There were times when Skelton would even hide from the hotel manager due to unpaid rent during his lean showbiz years. One time he owed three months back-rent at $9 per month at one hotel that more resembled a shanty. Three months unpaid rent put him in the arrears for a total of $18 (equivalent to $336.54 in today’s 2019 dollar amount).

Suddenly, Skelton is momentarily jarred from these thoughts and memories when

Paddy stands up and says, "I'm sorry, Your Honour, but for fifteen years I've lived next door to that bastard, and every time I asked to borrow a hammer, he said he didn't have one. “ •••• Vern works hard at the Phone Company but spends two nights each week bowling, and plays golf every Saturday. His wife thinks he's pushing himself too hard, so for his birthday she takes him to a local strip club. The doorman at the club greets them and says, 'Hey, Vern! How ya doin?'

His wife is puzzled and asks if he's been to this club before. 'Oh no,' says Vern. 'He's in my bowling league.

When they are seated, a waitress asks Vern if he'd like his usual and brings over a Budweiser.

His wife is becoming increasingly uncomfortable and says, 'How did she know that you drink Budweiser?'

'I recognize her, she's the waitress from the golf club. I always have a Bud at the end of the 1st nine, honey.' A stripper then comes over to their table, throws her arms around Vern, starts to rub herself all over him and says, 'Hi Vern. Want your usual table dance, big boy?'

he hears newspaper boys walking the streets below yelling at the top of their lungs: “EXTRA!! EXTRA!! READ ALL ABOUT IT! FAMOUS FEMALE PILOT, AMELIA EARHART, NOW MISSING SOMEWHERE OVER THE PACIFIC OCEAN!!”

The newsboys parading and yelling the front page news below his window causes him to briefly peer out over the fire escape. It is still early morning hours in New York City but he has already read most of the top newspaper stories. Throughout his life Skelton would always remain an early riser. He rarely slept more than 4 to 5 hours nightly, and would usually be up by 4:30 a.m. but sometimes as late as 5 a.m. He was already fairly caught-up on the local and world news items mentioned in the newspapers. Poor Amelia Earhart, he thought to himself. He was always an avid admirer of the daring female aviator and pioneer who set world records. Some newsworthy items had caught his attention more than others. In the sports pages, new up-and-coming boxer, Joe Louis, nicknamed “The Brown Bomber,” was the new World Heavyweight Champion. Red

Skelton created his own comical boxer named Cauliflower McPugg (the punch drunk fighter). Much of what Skelton saw in real life often gave him the matrix to reproduce an exaggerated version on the vaudeville stage.

Skelton always stayed keenly aware of the Hollywood scene because of his periodic connections there. The year 1937 had been a very good year for him. While still sitting on his hotel bed he reads with interest about some new actor making his debut in the movie “Love Is on the Air,” back in Hollywood. The actor’s movie reviews are dismal and discouraging -- no one really expects to ever hear of this relatively unknown, fledgling actor again, in the near or distant future. Skelton notices the actor’s name: Ronald Reagan, as if there were any serious need to remember. Yes, indeed, it has been a very profitable year for vaudeville performer Red Skelton who is enjoying accommodations at a higher-end hotel, copies of the 1937 New York Daily News and New York Times strewn

Vern's wife, now furious, grabs her purse and storms out of the club.

Vern follows and spots her getting into a cab.

Before she can slam the door, he jumps in beside her.

Vern tries desperately to explain how the stripper must have mistaken him for someone else, but his wife is having none of it.

She is screaming at him at the top of her lungs, calling him every 4 letter word in the book. The cabby turns around and says, 'Geez Vern, you picked up a real bitch this time.'

on the floor along with the obligatory showbiz periodicals, Variety and Daily Variety. Skelton was a formidable wit and possessed an energetic mind, despite his dropping out of school in 1926 at age 13. (He would later earn his high school equivalency diploma.) He knew his stagecraft well and how best to ply it. His mind was sponge-like, and he was a most clever, adaptable performer; traits that would serve him well over five different genres of entertainment: burlesque, vaudeville, radio, television, and motion pictures. All at which he excelled.

But at the moment, he is comfortable on his bed (he prefers sitting on a bed rather than a chair) immersed in thought, reflecting back on his early years growing up in Vincennes, Indiana. While thinking, he is fidgeting with a letter that he just placed a 3cent first class postage stamp on and plans to mail it, shortly. It is a very personal handwritten letter. But, he still pauses, deep in thought, fingering the letter addressed to his dear mother, Ida Mae Skelton back in Vincennes. In

the letter, there would be no mention of his father, Joseph Skelton, who once performed as a clown with the Hagenbeck-Wallace Circus. Red Skelton forever yearned to know the father that never was. Two months prior to Red Skelton’s birth, on July 18, 1913, his father, who owned a very modest grocery store, had died. Surrounding neighbors in the community of Vincennes described the Skelton family as being “extremely poor.” Although the Skeltons were already deeply plunged into poverty, things somehow found a way to get even worse. Especially after the family had lost the store. They would eventually lose their home.

Skelton’s thoughts have taken him far from where he now sits, in his New York City hotel room. He is recalling his upbringing with bittersweet feelings. He remembers his birth name that his mama gave him: Richard Bernard Skelton. At the young age of seven he sold newspapers and did various chores around town to help keep his mother and three brothers fed. Though still a child, himself, and the youngest of four brothers, he grew up fast, feeling the pain of poverty and the shame that went along with it. It hurt

him deeply to have to see his mama working multiple menial jobs. As tender as he was in years, he quickly understood the meaning of the brute word: sacrifice.

Richard Bernard Skelton would decide to sacrifice himself for his beloved family. Though his mother never wanted him to run away from home to become an entertainer, she also possessed a powerful mother’s instinct when she said: “His destiny had caught up with him at an early age.” Sadly, she let him go with her blessing and a warm hug and a gentle kiss. It is remarkable, in retrospect, that a child so young in years knew at the time that he would now be one less mouth to feed for his mama. One less burden for her to have to worry over. He seemed mature beyond his earthly years. A little boy’s gesture of self-sacrifice by going away would, one day, be blessed a million times over and he would usher in a golden age of comedy that would reshape the world of entertainment as never before. He would become one of the Immortals. In 1929, during the Great Depression, Red Skelton was

working as a young teen for “Doc” R. E. Lewis’s Traveling Medicine Show, telling jokes and selling bottles of medicine (aka snake oil) to the audience that gathered about the wagon. It is most touching that he never forgot his mama. He earned $10 a week (equal to $149.79 today) and sent all of it back home to his mother. That was a lot of money back then during the Great Depression, but his mother worried greatly that he was not keeping any of it for himself in yet another act of sacrifice. Skelton finally had to reassure her in yet another handwritten letter: “We get plenty to eat, and we sleep in the wagon.” Still sitting on the edge of his hotel bed, all of these thoughts washed over him as he now manages a slight smile of satisfaction. He would never allow himself to forget his roots and meager beginnings. He would often retrace his earlier years, as he just did. Such reflections gave him an inner strength and further resolve to maintain his remarkable journey in life. Right now, in the big city of New York, a 24-year-old Red

The Paper • Page 4 • August 15, 2019 A Revision of Oceanside’s Image Continues

Once upon a time, not so long ago, downtown Oceanside had a rather seedy image and reputation. No more.

Oceanside’s city governments, over the years, have made a concerted and consisent effort to reverse that image and present a new, modern day image of downtown Oceanside and it appears they are succeeding.

because it must give the same level of service to all residents, Sanchez said. Assessments will range from about $100 annually for small residential condominiums to $15,000 annually for the largest hotels. Total revenue is expected to be $370,000 in the first year, increasing annually to $417,000 in 2024.

No longer just a “Marine beach town,” Oceanside now draws more and more tourists and they are able to feel safe as they shop and enjoy the many amernities Oceanside now offers. Recently, the Oceanside City Council plus a weighted majority of property owners approved a plan to increase safety and maintenance in the downtown blocks just east of the city’s ocean pier - an area that continues to see new development.

Money raised by the new Downtown Oceanside Property and Business Improvement District will be used to power-wash sidewalks, remove graffiti and litter, hire security guards, and generally shine the image of Oceanside’s tourismdependent downtown neighborhood. The city’s nonprofit business group MainStreet Oceanside worked several years to develop the plan. Formation of the district allows the property owners to assess themselves a fee to pay for supplemental services that the city can’t provide

I was in the area of Marie Callenders the other day and decided to drive by once more time. I drove into the parking lot to turn around and noticed three of four nice looking young kids walking toward the restaurant. “Were you aware that Marie Callender’s is closed?” I asked.

I learnede about it from good friend, Alan Skuba, former Mayor of Escondido and former owner of KOWN Radio, which I managed for him back in the early to mid 70’s.

Skuba said, “We opened Escondido Callender’s (#66) November 15, 1976 Bankrupt Aug. 7, 2019 - 43 yrs. Our interest in #66 was sold in the late 80’s. He had mostly good memories of the eatery.

Those of us who know Arie well had to chuckle when we tried to imagine him staying off his feet and taking life a little easier in order to allow his surgery to heal.

I spent a half day with Arie De Jong on two separate occasions and by noon I was exhausted!

As much as we love Arie’s company we are all going to make a concerted effort to slow Arie down so he heals up properly. The one who has the most difficult task in that department is his beautiful wife, Anneke. She keeps a lovely, orderly home and sees to it that Arie is properly fed and watered and, we hope, is able to slow him down just a bit. There is no doubt in my mind, however, that in about three to four weeks we will all once again see Arie on the move, tending to business matters. I suspect his Secretary and Aide-deCamp, Tina, will be busier than normal. Hang in there, Arie! But slow down. Just a bit. Please. •••• Another good friend, Cathy DagostinoHamilton, also recovering from recent surgery.

It was in the early 1970's. I had just taken over as manager of radio station KOWN in Escondido when I learned of a character who lived on Palomar Mount and claims that he and his wife not only had met aliens from outer space but had gone for rides with them in their space ships. Well!

This was too good to pass up.

I contacted the guy. His name escapes me now what with the passage of time and all.

He claimed that he and his wife had met personally with aliens, that they had landed in a meadow on Palomar Mountain, and they had invited him on board their space ship. Radio and newspaper types are known to be skeptics. We tend to seek out proof. To see evidence.

Red Skelton Cont. from Page 3

Skelton slowly rises up off his bed to his full 6’ 2” height. He is unusually tall for comedians of his day. Other upcoming vaudeville comics, like Jack Benny, Al Jolson, Bert Lahr, and Eddie Cantor all stood at only 5’ 8.” George Burns and Jimmy Durante were even smaller at 5’ 7.” Skelton smiles as he thinks of these smaller specimens – his fellow comics - because he often joked about their diminutive status, all in good-natured fun, of course. Skelton takes letter in hand and walks out towards the elevator. He proceeds down to the main floor to post it. After dropping off his mother’s letter at the hotel lobby front desk, he slowly turns and with a mischievous smile and a sparkle in his eye he changes direction and heads straight to the hotel lobby telephone booth. He knew what he was about to do. He had planned this numerous times and today was no exception. Skelton remembers in his own words: “Every afternoon between shows I would call every hotel because my name was in the ad in the newspapers and I had myself paged (he laughs at this point). People in hotel lobbies would

hear my name being paged and would say ‘What the hell is that? Who is that? Red Skelton? I don’t know, I just saw his name in the paper!’” Skelton continues telling the ruse with intermittent laughter: “So, I got free publicity that way! And as a result, I got top billing!”

Skelton’s astute showbiz mind and powers of self-promotion fired on all cylinders. On this score, he had no equal. Often, Red Skelton’s biggest jokes were, in reality, promotional gimmicks he actually employed. For example, Red Skelton would joke: “As I walked in, there were a lot of people outside and someone yelled: ‘RED SKELTON’S IN THE CROWD!!’ And they all turned around and looked at me! Gee, I was so embarrassed – I was sorry I yelled!” Though such narrative jokes as cited above were wildly funny to vaudeville audiences, the joke’s storyline often carried elements of truth in Red Skelton’s actual self-promotion schemes. At other times he would send ushers out into the audience before showtime with questionnaire cards. Audience members were asked to circle on the card which Red Skelton character they would most like

Such ingenious escapades kept Red Skelton’s name popular and he continued to receive top-billing at many of vaudeville’s greatest theatres around the country. Skelton was known as a triple-threat performer – he was not only devastating as a standup comic who could destroy an audience with laughter, he was also a visual clown who pantomimed with a stunning mastery. One second you were convulsed in laughter at his sight gags, the next moment you were emotionally moved to tears at his sentimental characters. In addition to all this, Skelton was most deadly at ad-libbing. Often, his adlibs were superior to lines that writers labored over, especially during his television years when he starred on his own show. Throughout his career, Skelton never took a shine to writers; he considered them an intrusion into his world; completely ignorant on how best to write for his many characters, such as “Freddy the Freeloader.” Characters

glib host, telling us all about his adventures. Most investigators felt his claims were an elaborate hoax and that he was a con artist. I would not disagree with them.

I quickly lost interest in this wideeyed, talkative individual. But I did look into another, more prominent individual who claimed similar encounters with UFO’s and their alien occupants. His name was George Adamski.

He was a Polish-American who claimed to have photographed spaceships from other planets, met with friendly aliens, and have flown with them to the moon and other planets.

to see that night. Ushers would tally up the votes and Skelton would hit the “bull’s eye” in giving his fans exactly what they came to see and experience. He was a dynamite success! His popularity shot to dizzying heights.

He wrote three books describing his meetings with aliens and his travels with them aboard their spaceships, Flying Saucers have Landed, in 1953, Inside the Space Ships in 1955, Flying Saucers Farewell in 1962. By 1960 the first two books had sold 200,000 copies. He had been born in Poland, coming to the US when he was two years old.

He was a solider, having fought during the Pancho Villa wars, had a number of odd jobs, and became a semi-preacher for awhile.

He became a founder of "The Royal Order of Tibet" and obtained permission to make wine for religious purposes to serve to its members in the "Temple of Scientific Philosophy," where he held the titles of philosopher

which only Skelton knew best.

Skelton never pulled his punches on the subject of writers: “I never met the writers (on his television shows). If I had listened to the writers and did what they gave me, I wouldn’t have been on two years.” Skelton often adlibbed while taping his shows which caused his team of writers to have kittens. There was never any love lost between them. Often what you see on film is what Skelton adlibbed, rather than using lines from his script.

One of Skelton’s most famous routines which he created for himself was a pantomime sketch called “Doughnut Dunkers,” a silent visualization on how different people dunk and eat donuts in the most comical of ways. This pantomime comedy skit turned Skelton into an instant celebrity in 1937. He was performing the “Doughnut Dunkers” routine at the Capitol Theatre in Washington, D. C. when the Oval Office caught wind of it and gave him a call. President Franklin D. Roosevelt invited Skelton to perform the routine

and teacher. He said he made a fortune from his wine business as it was during Prohibition. When Prohibition ended his business turned belly up. That's when he decided to focus on flying saucers and space aliens. He attracted at least one wealthy woman, Alice K. Wells, a student of his, who provided the resources to buy 20 acres of land at the base of Palomar Mountain, along highway 56, where they built a new home, a campground called Palomar Gardens, and a small restaurant called Palomar Gardens Cafe. At the campgrounds Adamski would give lectures on philosophy and religion. Later, Adamaski would claim he had seen 184 UFOs pass over Palomar Gardens in just one evening.

He was actually able to go on a lecture circuit and collect fees for his lectures. Among other items, Adamski claimed, "that government and science had established the existence of UFOs two years earlier, via radar tracking of 700foot-long spacecraft on the other side of the Moon." In his lectures Adamski further claimed that "science now knows that all planets [in Earth's solar system] are inhabited" and "photos of Mars taken from the Mount Palomar observatory have proven the canals on Mars are man-made, built by an intelligence far greater than any man's on earth." Still later he claimed to have seen a space ship in the desert, walked out to meet it and became acquainted with Orthon, a resident of the planet Venus who claimed Venetians were living in

Mensa is an organization whose members have an IQ of 140 or higher. A few years ago, there was a Mensa convention in San Francisco, and several members lunched at a local café. While dining, they discovered that their saltshaker contained pepper and their peppershaker was full of salt. How could they swap the contents of the bottles without spilling, and using only the implements at hand? Clearly this was a job for Mensa! The group debated and presented ideas, and finally came up with a brilliant solution involving a napkin, a straw, and an empty saucer. They called the waitress over to dazzle her with their solution. "Ma'am," they said, "we couldn't help but notice that the peppershaker contains salt and the saltshaker— " "Oh," the waitress interrupted. "Sorry about that."

Historic Letter from First Lady Goes Public at History Museum - Inspired by recent national attention on Russia, an historic personal letter sent by former First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt to a diplomat at his Valley Center home has been placed on public view at the Valley Center History Museum. The letter, dated 1958, reveals a meeting involving two Russians, one of whom turned out to be a Soviet spy. The rare correspondence is on letterhead of Mrs. Franklin D. Roosevelt, and was delivered to Col. Irving Salomon at his Lilac Ranch residence asking if he could attend a private lunch at the New York apartment of Mrs. Roosevelt with Mr. Sobolev and Mr. Fornin of the Soviet Delegation to the United Nations. Arkady Sobolev was the Soviet Ambassador to the United Nations and Aleksandr Fornin, it was later learned, was the alias of Soviet spy Alexander Feldisov, chief of KGB operations in the United States. Both Col. Salomon and Mrs. Roosevelt were members of the U.S. Delegation to the United Nations. History Museum president William Boyett said it was decided to take the letter from the vault and share it with the public. He pointed out that the correspondence was among memorabilia and documents which were donated by the Salomon and Wolfsheimer families and are part of a permanent exhibition which also includes personal possessions of Mrs. Roosevelt which she brought to the local ranch while visiting Ambassador Solomon from the 1950's

at a White House luncheon. When the time came for the attendees to toast the president and glasses were raised high, Skelton quickly grabbed Roosevelt’s glass and shouted: “Careful what you drink, Mr. President!! I got rolled in a place like this once!!”

Red Skelton’s unpredictable adlibs became world-renown. His adlibbed humor appealed so much to FDR that Skelton returned often to the White House to serve as official Master of Ceremonies for Roosevelt’s subsequent birthday celebrations. Apparently, the U. S. President could not get enough of Skelton’s wit and neither could those in attendance. The days of vaudeville’s reign would soon come to an end. The new medium of entertainment was the radio airwaves and one-by-one the great theatres of burlesque and vaudeville would be dismantled. For Skelton, the destruction of these vaudeville houses was akin to destroying cathedrals. They would forever remain as shrines to him. As Skelton voiced in his own words: “These theaters to me were always like great temples. When they started tearing them down, it was like destroying a cathedral to me. And I felt always like royalty because I held court there with all those people in front of me.”

These early vaudeville houses were the proving grounds that nurtured him as a performer; sculpted him; schooled his comedic genius by polishing his rough routines into smooth priceless gems for his live audiences. These vaudeville houses, these monuments to America’s historic performing arts legacy . . . they were now no more.

The new era of entertainment was on the horizon, and its name was radio. For many vaudevillians, they were unable to make a successful transition from stage to airwaves and, consequently, many a career came to a cruel ending. The fruitful ones, the golden ones, like the Bob Hopes, the Jack Bennys, Fred Allens, Milton Berles, and the Red Skeltons made it through these treacherous career waters. But radio remained a new challenge that had to be met. For example, Red Skelton could no longer be seen as a visual clown on live radio, nor have his irresistible facial expressions laughed at

SoCal’s water portfolio

This region has made tremendous strides toward diversifying its water portfolio. In Riverside County, groundwater desalination is moving forward to take full advantage of all available sources of water. Plans for Water Banking, which will take Northern California water imported during wet years to restore local aquifers for use during dry years, are also progressing. Since the droughts of the early 90s, San Diego has taken some costly steps to diversify its water sources, and those steps are succeeding. By 2020, San Diego will only be importing 11% of its water from MWD. 35% of our water will be imported from the Imperial Irrigation District; canal lining of the All American and Coachella Canals will provide 15%, with another 10% supplied by the Carlsbad desalination plant. Other sources include expanded use of recycled water and our local supplies, such as reservoirs and lakes. While I was a member of the Escondido City Council, I advocated a plan to use treated waste water to irrigate groves on the city’s perimeter, a plan now being implemented. I’ve also authored legislation aimed at implementing similar projects statewide. As a result of ongoing diversification, only 2% of San Diego

because now only his voice was carried through the airwaves. His act was suddenly confined only to sound and not sight to millions of radio listeners across America. This new formidable challenge proved fatal to many vaudeville performers who could never feel comfortable performing for just a microphone and holding scripted pages in their hands. It all suddenly seemed artificial despite the eventual presence of a live, meager radio studio audience. Radio was especially fatal to the countless thousands of burlesque and vaudeville visual performers and entertainers such as acrobats, jugglers, contortionists, clowns, plate spinners, dancers, animal acts, etc. These acts had to be seen, not heard. For Red Skelton, even though he could no longer pantomime on the radio or buffoon with outrageous facial gestures which could not be seen, he nevertheless unleashed an unending bag of tricks and vocalizations that proved breathtaking in its scope of genius. He knew how to paint pictures with words for the millions of radio listeners so they could better visualize his physical gestures with minimal effort. He further

County’s water will be imported from MWD by 2035, and the state has taken notice. Last month, Wayne Crowfoot from the California Natural Resources Agency met with representatives from the San Diego County Water Authority, state and local water officials and other stakeholders at Scripps to discuss our water future.

Recurring droughts and the threat of earthquakes that could devastate water infrastructure in critical areas, all point to the need to diversify California’s water portfolio. The keys to our water future include more storage and conveyance facilities, more recycling and desalination – and more thinking outside the box. 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.

explains his formula of success: “Well, because all of my jokes I did on radio were visual, it was a challenge.” One of his characters named “Junior, the Mean Widdle Kid” was a classic example of how Skelton made it easy for his audience to visualize his routines on radio: “Junior! What are you doing!? Are you pulling that cat’s tail!?” And Junior would answer: “No, I’m not pulling that cat’s tail. I’m just holding onto it – he’s doing all the pulling!” Radio listeners were struck silly with laughter. As Skelton explains, “Well, it’s a joke you could ‘see’ over the radio waves!”

Some great comedians were reluctant players on radio, such as the mighty Fred Allen who often said of radio, “I don’t hold with furniture that talks.” For Red Skelton, radio was just another playground upon which he could cavort as a little child. And he brought along all of his imaginary friends. He knew not only how to paint pictures for millions of radio listeners, he left no stone unturned by creating a colorful cast of characters who not only

made you laugh at their funny antics but whose names, by themselves, even sounded funny: Bolivar Shagnasty (the loudmouthed braggart), Willy Lump Lump (the drunk), Junior the Mean Widdle Kid, Cauliflower McPugg (the punch drunk fighter), San Fernando Red (the con man with political ambitions), and the dim-witted country bumpkin, Clem Kadiddlehopper, to cite only a few examples. By October 7, 1941, Red Skelton had his own radio show, “The Raleigh Cigarette Program” and all these imaginary characters he created helped get him there. The bandleader for this radio show was an unknown individual with aspirations of his own. His name was Ozzie Nelson who would someday find his own niche in show business by starring on his own television series, “The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet,” (1952–1966) with his real-life family which included famed pop and rock ‘n’ roll singer, Ricky Nelson.

He was a most extraordinary man with most extraordinary creative resources. Also, he was just naturally funny in real life, just as he was on stage. Once, while visiting a Chicago department store he noticed an abstract painting that he described as “a bunch of blotches.” When he asked how much it was selling for, the store clerk sniffed in snoblike fashion and said, “Ten thousand wouldn’t buy that one.” Skelton told the clerk, “Well, I’m one of the ten thousand who wouldn’t buy that!”

Red Skelton found show business in his blood very early on: “My first break was when I went with R. E. Lewis’s Medicine Show. I was 10 years old,” Skelton remembers. Skelton’s true age during these real-life episodes remain sketchy. Author, Wesley Hyatt, notes that there has been a long dispute over the years of Red Skelton’s birth. Hyatt suggests, as do many others, that during his time, because he began working at such an early age that Skelton may have claimed he was older than he actually was in order to gain employment. In Skelton’s case, employment was a life-and-death struggle and a requirement to help rescue his family which was poverty-struck. Red Skelton’s radio career

The Founding of The ‘King of the Missions’

In the late 1700s, the Spanish military determined a new Fransican mission was needed to cut the travel time between San Diego and San Juan Capistrano. – more importantly it gave the Spanish more of a foothold in California, keeping the Russians coming down the West coast at bay.

In short – the establishment of California missions were really for military purposes.

Francisco Father Fermin de Lausen founded the mission on June 13, 1798. It was named “Mission San Luis Rey de Francia” after the French king who had become a Francian friar years before.

The Spanish positioned the 21 missions along or close to the coast so each could be easily reached within a day’s travel on horseback, mule, and foot along California original highway, El Camino Real (the royal road). The travel distance between each mission was approximately 30 miles. San Luis Rey was the last to be built.

El Camino Real started as little more than a footpath, but nonetheless a coastal passage for travel from San Diego, the first mission to be built, to San Francisco. Portions of the original route exists today from San Diego north to San Francisco in a combination of highway and various city streets.

Mission San Luis Rey de Francia was laid out and built some four miles east of the coastline along the south shore of the San Luis Rey River in what today is Oceanside, California. By late summer of 1798, some 6,000 adobe bricks had been made for the new church which was completed by 1802. It is situated halfway between Mission San Diego and Mission San Juan Capistrano.

At the height of Mission San Luis Rey’s dominance in North San Diego County, it was the largest of the 21 missions and the most prosperous with some 25,000 head of cattle, 26,000 sheep, 2,000 head of horses, all maintained by 5,000 Luisenos Indians living in and around the mission. At one time it was the largest

civilized living and working complex west of the Mississippi. It was known as “King of the Missions.”

In 1821, the Mexicans overthrew some 300 years of Spanish rule. The new Mexican government insisted upon separating church and state, which meant the demise of the mission system and its vast holdings. Secularization meant the holdings of land and livestock at each mission was taken by the new government and sold to the public. More importantly, the friars at each of the missions no longer had control over the native population. The mostly Spanish-born padres refused to swear allegiance to the new Republic of Mexico causing them to be distrusted and even feared by Mexican officials. During the secularization period in Mexico and Alta California there was a rapid increase in the number of private ranchos. Today, the old Rancho Los Flores y Santa Margarita is known as the U.S. Marine’s Camp Pendleton, the nation’s largest military base. Rancho Guajome (pronounced: “wahhome-ah) in Vista, California was a subsidiary of Santa Margarita.

In 1835, Mission San Luis Rey was abandoned and surrendered to the Mexican government, clearing the way for officers, soldiers and landowners to loot or buy off the mission’s vast estate and livestock at ridiculously cheap prices. The looting became so fierce that even the huge timber beams holding up the roof of the church and other major buildings were stolen by ranchers to construct their own private buildings. For the next century, artifacts taken by the Mexicans during that period of looting were gradually found in private homes and collections, much of which has been returned to the mission. Mexico neglected “Alta” (upper) California, which might never have become part of the United States had it not been for three visionaries with very huge egos: U.S. Army surveyor and explorer Colonel John C. Fremont, U.S. Navy Commodore Robert F. Stockton, and U.S. Army Brig. General Stephen W. Kearny.

Because it could take as long as six months to get a message to and from Washington, D.C., decisions had to be made on the spot at the moment of opportunity. The question of who really had control of California wasn’t settled for some time. The population’s attitude was mixed. A good deal of the people, mostly Anglo, welcomed U.S. control; the Latino landowners possessing huge land grants were less than eager to see a governmental change. Today, Mission San Luis Rey sits in the center of Oceanside and continues to be an active place of worship, educational museums, retreat and a popular tourist attraction, as do the remaining Spanish missions along the California coast.

friends, leaving the divorce court arm-in-arm in 1943. Edna remembers how Red spent his money recklessly. He once had a checking account with a $5,000 balance (equivalent to over $83,938.54 today); five days later a call from the bank told Edna that the account was overdrawn. From that day forward, Edna placed husband Red Skelton on a weekly allowance of $75 (equal to over $1,300 today). Edna wisely managed his money, making fruitful investments such as in real estate and remained his advisor until 1952. The couple never dis-

cussed the reason(s) for their divorce.

Red Skelton’s personal life soon after resembled a roller coaster ride. He had many unpredicted perils and turn-ofevents which would plague him. His divorce from his first wife meant that he lost his marriage-deferment status and was re-classified as 1-A for the draft. His last radio show for The Raleigh Cigarette Program was on June 6, 1944. The very next day he was formally inducted into the U. S. Army where he was assigned to the Entertainment Corps which would prove his undo-

ing. Performing as many as a dozen grueling shows a day for troops in both the United States and Europe he was soon driven to utter exhaustion. Then, it happened. He was hit hard with a complete and total nervous breakdown. His nervous collapse left him hospitalized with a serious stuttering problem which only time would heal.

Less than a year later, while still in the Army, Red Skelton married second wife, actress Georgia Maureen Davis, on

March 9, 1945, in Beverly Hills, California. The marriage would yield almost complete destruction for the legendary clown, Red Skelton. How he survived the ordeal remains a ponderous question mark in his life. The couple had two children, one year apart. A daughter, Valentina, was born on May 5, 1947, and then a son, Richard, born on May 20, 1948. At the height of Red Skelton’s popularity, his 9year-old son was diagnosed with leukemia (blood cancer). Both parents were emotionally on the brink of death. No news in the entire cosmos could have possibly been worse for them. Skelton no longer wished to work. He lost interest in performing. He only wished to stay close to his son, who he continued to make laugh with his clown-like antics. Struck with deadly leukemia, little Richard fully knew his days with his daddy were numbered. The little boy often asked about death. He cherished nothing more than to continue to have his daddy close to him, each and every day, along with his mother. Then, something most extraor-

dinary happened. most unexpected.

Something

His little boy, Richard, who carried daddy’s true name and the same DNA, chose to sacrifice himself in much the same way Red Skelton did as a little boy, long ago, when he left home so that he would no longer be a burden to his mother in Vincennes, Indiana. Little 9-year-old Richard knew his daddy made people happy through laughter, so he told Red Skelton to promise to return to his television show so that he could help countless other people be happy, too. Collapsing on his son’s bed and hugging his child, Red Skelton was reduced to tears. His son would sacrifice precious hours away from his daddy, so that a greater number of people could laugh. Red Skelton would be held fast to his son’s promise – he would honor his son’s last request of him. The death of son, Richard Skelton, in 1958, devastated the psyche of both parents, as well as that of his little 11year-old sister, Valentina who was, quite simply, too young to ever understand. Remarkably, Red Skelton’s performances as a clown belied

the undercurrent of tragedy and unhealed pain which he carried, unnoticed, throughout his life in the recesses of his heart. He was brilliant on stage, earning worldwide recognition and applause as the unequalled master of mirth and joy. His achievements as America’s premier clown staggers the imagination and makes one weak behind the knees: Royal Command Performances in England and before members of the United Nations, two stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Golden Globe Award recipient, Emmy Awards for Best Comedy Program and Best Comedian, a special Emmy Award for “Outstanding Achievement In Comedy.” Red Skelton had arrived on the world stage as the undisputed master of his craft. He was never more profoundly brilliant. But, how was all this possible?

After all, his own son had been cruelly taken away from his loving arms. Tragedy had done its most evil deed, leaving the clown of clowns reduced to a carcass of wailing arms and dreadful cries to the high heavens. From the debris of his broken and suffering life, how was this possible? How was

Red Skelton more supremely funny than at any other time of his illustrious career, earning awards and standing ovations at command performances before royalty and presidents? The key to answering that question is that Skelton was no longer just a single person performing – he was now performing for two people. He would forever keep his little boy’s promise of making other people laugh.

Few knew of these precious inner secrets. Even diehard Red Skelton fans, to this day, are unaware of these motivating, unseen forces at work. After his son’s death, Red Skelton gently lifted a pair of his sons little eyeglasses and never wished for that part of his son to ever be far from his comedy routines. From that day onward, whenever Red Skelton performed his character, “George Appleby” (the meek, bespectacled, henpecked husband), he always wore his son Richard’s pair of glasses. Not only as a physical reminder to always keep his son’s dying wish to make people happy, but to also keep a

physical part of his son with him while he is actually keeping that very promise on stage. Red Skelton often felt that both he and his lost son were peering through those same eyeglasses. Together. But life is forever unpredictable. On May 10, 1976, his wife, Georgia Skelton, committed suicide by gunshot on the 28th anniversary of their son Richard’s death from leukemia. She was 54 years old. For months, Red Skelton mourned her passing. All his professional activities and plans were put on hold. Skelton became the saddest of clowns. Memories of his precious son resurfaced to re-open old scarred wounds. He remembered how his 9-yearold son, Richard, asked him: “Daddy, what happens after people die?” Tears had welled up in Red Skelton’s eyes. He told his young boy: “They join a parade and start marching.” He was caught off guard and that was the best answer he could give at the time. These and other memories returned to haunt him. He remembered how he refused to dismantle his little boy’s model train set

after he passed on. It was moved to a storeroom where it remained intact and undisturbed.

These were ways to remain connected to his past loved ones. Even Red Skelton’s father, whom he regretted never knowing because he died before Red’s birth, was recreated. As a young boy, Red Skelton sat his mama down and asked about his daddy being a clown with the Hagenbeck-Wallace Circus. If Red would never be able to meet his father, then he could join him in being a clown, also. He copied his papa’s clown makeup and performed his routines, as described by his mother. In this way, the young boy, Red Skelton, could recreate and connect with the daddy he never had. It was a very personal re-creation which he delayed sharing with his vast audiences until later years. Finally, Red Skelton revealed his daddy’s character in 1952 in the form of “Freddy the Freeloader.” It was the exact makeup as described by Skelton’s mother. But until that year his daddy’s character and makeup only belonged to Red. When Skelton performed for over 600 diplomats from the United Nations -- the represen-

Pet Parade

Satchmo is pet of the week at your Rancho Coastal Humane Society. He’s a 7 year old, 11 pound, male, Chihuahua mix.

Satchmo’s previous owner says that he’s playful, he loves going to the dog park, and he lived with another dog in his previous home. Satchmo was transferred from another shelter through the FOCAS (Friends of County Animal Shelters) program.

The $75 adoption fee for Satchmo includes medical exams, vaccinations, neuter, and registered 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.

Tarzan is a 4-year-old cat looking for a new home. He is an incredibly affectionate companion. He will lean against you for more pets and he loves his cheeks brushed, too. Tarzan’s sweet personality has staff and volunteers smitten, but he is having a hard time finding the right adopter because he tested positive for FIV. However, FIV+ cats can live long and healthy lives with the right care. If you have room in your home and your heart, come and meet Tarzan today! His adoption fee includes his neuter, current vaccinations, permanent microchip identification, a certificate for a free veterinary exam and waived enrollment fee for medical insurance from PetFirst. Tarzan is available for adoption at San Diego Humane Society’s Escondido Campus at 3500 Burnet Drive. To learn more about making him part of your family, please call (619) 299-7012.

tatives from 39 nations -- he included a most touching pantomime sequence of an old man watching a parade pass by. The sketch had its origins from the question his son had asked him regarding what happens after people leave this world. Skelton said we all join a parade. In the U.N. sketch, the old man watches the parade, removing his hat and saluting at times when the American flag passes; waves wildly to parade participants; and laughs while enjoying the procession. At the final end of the parade, when the last parade person walks past . . . the old man slowly, awkwardly, gets behind and joins them as they walk off into the distance and out of sight. Most every eye in the audience was moist with tears. It was a slice of life offered up to the delegates of the United Nations who sat spellbound. There suddenly were no barriers for the diplomats from 39 different countries; no translator headphones were required because there were – for one shining moment – no barriers of language, race, color, or culture. They all understood the simplicity that only emotions can convey, far more powerfully than any words. At life’s end, we all join another journey or parade of sorts –

define it as you wish. But, in the end, we must all leave this spinning blue marble of ours and march off to greener pastures, as many believe. In 1978, Red Skelton was honored with the Cecil B. DeMille Award for “Outstanding Contributions in Entertainment.” He knew the acceptance was for both himself and his little son, Richard, who was the sparkplug which drove him onward. When the audience rose in a resounding, deafening standing ovation, Red Skelton was so emotionally moved that he hugged his award so tight that it broke. He momentarily looked upward and smiled as if to acknowledge to little Richard, “We dood it!” (“We Dood It,” was a longstanding trademark phrase of Red Skelton and also the title of one of his hit movies.) The great Red Skelton stayed active for many years after his glorious triumphs in burlesque, vaudeville, radio, television, and motion pictures. He continued touring and performing as many as 125 live shows a year until 1993, when

The Pastor Says...

people and seemed comfortable with pagans and sinners. The outcasts and those who were marginalized were those he showed empathy to, and his disciples were often not the smartest or the elite.

Pastor Sam Brumit Mission 316, San Marcos The Misunderstood Jesus

Jesus was misunderstood in His time and, in lots of ways, still is misunderstood. Most of us love His teaching about things like the golden rule, love to quote Him about “Judge not…” and love your neighbor as yourself, etc. The more I read His story, in the gospels, I’m not sure everyone would feel comfortable with Him. Sometimes His words were direct, often piercing, and sometimes offensive to His listeners.

It was the Jesus of the Bible who spoke harshly about religious leaders of His day, and let prostitutes hang out with him. He appeared to have an anger issue – like the time he lost it and drove everyone out of the temple. He often hung out with “those”

He might have made some uncomfortable, but there was also something about His words and His life that caused multitudes to follow. When He invited them to leave if they needed to, it was Peter, his follower who said in John 6, “So Jesus said to the twelve, ‘Do you want to go away as well?’ Simon Peter answered him, ‘Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life. To top it all, at one point Jesus was homeless. He said the Son of man has no place to lay His head.

Yet, His message of love touched those who listened. Millions eventually followed Him; many died (and still do) for Him. His words caused them to give up their very lives and follow.

Though misunderstood by many, His words (and his death on a cross – and resurrection from the dead, continues to change the world.

San Marcos • Mayor Rebecca Jones City Helps Local Businesses Grow

The City of San Marcos is home to an outstanding collection of local businesses that help make our community an amazing place to live and work.

The City was recently honored with an Award of Excellence from the California Association for Local Economic Development for helping four local businesses from the City’s booming manufacturing industry secure nearly $1.4M in tax credits to expand their operations and create 79 new jobs.

The Governor’s Office of Business and Economic Development awarded the tax credits to Wholesale Shade, Cliniqa, Creative Electron and Quick Charge Power. The savings from the credits must be invested back into each company.

Winning these credits is highly competitive, and City staff guided business owners through the process. To learn more, visit www.san-marcos.net/openforbusiness or call (760) 7441050, ext. 3120.

Need help locating a shelter, contact the County of San Diego at 1-800510-2020.

Oceanside • Mayor Peter Weiss

Greetings Escondido,

I saw a Facebook comment asking what has been going on since the election. I thought it was a fair question and I offered to speak to that group at a special “Meet the Mayor” meeting just for them. The offer is open to every group. Simply send me an email and ask. pmcnamara@escondido.org So what is going on - a lot.

Everything we’ve been doing since the election has two overarching purposes. The first is to change the narrative of the city, and the second is to create a better climate for business development. They go hand-in-hand in my mind. This city has a lot to offer and everyone who lives here knows that. We just need to spread the word. That helps set the attractive business development climate. So, the next time you talk to someone who doesn’t live here, brag a little bit. There’s a lot to choose from! Finally, to all the volunteers I meet on an almost daily basis, thank you for all you do for our city! Semper Fi, Mac

he turned 80 years old.

He finally died on September 17, 1997, at the age of 84.

He had left a most astounding legacy: he had composed over 8,000 songs and symphonies, produced over 1,000 oil paintings of clowns, wrote short stories, scripted commercials, and more. He had even composed many march songs which were used by over 10,000 high schools and college bands around the country. Accolades poured in from around the world after his death. France’s greatest mime, Marcel Marceau said: “Red, you are eternal for me and the millions of people you made laugh and cry. May God bless you forever, my great and precious companion. I will never forget that silent world we created together.” Groucho Marx called him “the most logical successor to (Charlie) Chaplin.” Kings,

queens and presidents lined up to give him praise. Even the Soviet Union (during the height of the Cold War era) had bestowed rare and precious honor to him when he still walked the Earth. But, perhaps the most touching accolades of all came from the countless millions of everyday folk (both adults and children) who grew up with him. His fans who laughed, cried, and loved him. He wished more than anything else – to simply make people laugh. Red Skelton once said: “I just want to be known as a clown. Because to me that’s the height of my profession. It means you can do everything – sing, dance and above all, make people laugh.”

Red Skelton did all of that and much more. From his early poverty beginnings as a little boy in Vincennes, Indiana, he miraculously traversed a most remarkable and unexpected journey that saw him blossom into America’s premier clown . . . who ended up belonging to

Scholarship for Refugees

San Diego County is home to refugee families who have been uprooted from their homelands. They have arrived in San Diego carrying more than just physical loads. They also carry emotional traumatic load while dragging their children through their relocation to foreign lands. The children need help to become productive citizens.

The Dokua Smith Foundation is a nonprofit organization based in San Diego and its goal is to establish an education scholarship fund to support refugee children. The sole mission of the Foundation is to raise, manage and distribute funds to provide education scholarships to refugee children in San Diego county. Dokua Smith Foundation was founded on behalf of a mother who believed in education as a tool to lift the person from mental poverty. Their aim is to recognize that the refugee children in San Diego county and elsewhere deserve concrete support through assurance of funds for education. You can get more information at www.dsfhc.org

the entire world.

Looking back at his own long life, Skelton never stopped being funny: “I don’t know where I’ve been, or what I’ve done, but -- I wouldn’t have missed it for the world.” Finally, at long last, Red Skelton has joined that parade he once told his son, Richard, about. There is an old saying that the only constant in life is change. Red Skelton ended his shows with a constant; he always repeated his signature farewell: “Thank you and may God bless.”

That constant never changed. He may have said it in different ways and even in different languages to different audiences but it always came out the same. Skelton was often fond of repeating something else during his lifetime: “I personally believe that each of us was put here for a purpose – to build not to destroy. If I can make people smile, then I have served my purpose for God.”

America’s premier clown has certainly served his purpose.

were peacefully living on Earth, and that he had met with them in bars and restaurants in Southern California. He even arranged to meet the Queen of the Netherlands. The Queen’s aides urged her to cancel the audience but the Queen decided to meet Adamski. He returned home, all aglow, eager to tell of his meeting with the Queen with whomever might sit down and listen.

Adamski's photograph, above, which is said to be of a UFO, taken on 13 December 1952. However, German scientist Walther Johannes Riedel said this photo was faked using a surgical lamp and that the landing struts were light bulbs. Adamski was well known in North San Diego County. He gave frequent lectures and was often the subject of living room conversations - albeit with smirks and chuckles upon occasion.

Good friends, Paul and Nome Van Middlesworth, owners of The Computer Factory, tell us they had meals on several occasions at Adamski’s Garden Restaurant at the foot of Palomar Mountain. They saw no aliens.
