By Friedrich Gomez

MR. LABOR DAY. Loren Wade of Winfield, Kansas, worked at Walmart with great punctuality and unswerving commitment to his job. He personified the true meaning and ideals of America’s Labor Day. After all, Labor Day is America’s official holiday to acknowledge and honor our workforce. In fact, Labor Day’s proclamation is the sentiThe Paper - 760.747.7119

ment: “To honor and pay tribute to the contributions and achievements of American workers, everywhere.” Yep, Loren Wade from Winfield, Kansas, population 12,301, proudly carried the torch of America’s Labor Day legacy. Fact is, he became the most popular and congenial Walmart employee with every customer admiring him beyond words. Rising as early as

4:30 a.m., he never missed a workday. And he was never late. One customer remarked, “I think the man’s here 24/7. He just, well, he just belongs here. It is his life . . . and he is ours.”

At Walmart, his duties are greatly varied and he meets each challenge with vigor and success. On early mornings, he waters the plants in the Garden Section of Walmart;

welcomes every customer with a broad infectious smile; and he works the cash register with impeccable skill, timing, and accuracy. Thing is, Loren Wade was 104 years-old and still working at his community Walmart store for 33 straight years. At age 104, he became a living legend. A living, two-footed shrine where one makes pilgrimage to reboot your

own ambition and to get a healthy dose of inspiration. As one of our country’s oldest working Americans, Loren Wade – without even trying to – personified the very ideals and highest examples of our nation’s workforce. Hands-down, he single-handedly emptied every lazy upstart’s bucket of excuses for not working. When Wade died, less than 3 years ago, on November 20, 2016 – just eleven weeks after Labor Day – he snuffed out a candle that he long burned as “One of the oldest working Americans in the United States.” Working at the great age of 104 often made his conversations with Walmart coworkers seem eerily farfetched, yet nonetheless, true. For example, as with most fathers, Wade spoke fondly about his son, often with bragging rights. After all, his son was 80-years-old! As a Walmart employee, he sometimes worked on his birthday, and always received VIP phone calls congratulating him, as when former Senator Bob Dole telephoned and called him, wishing him “Happy Birthday, Loren!” Then calling him, “An inspiration!”

The topper is that Wade never had to work during his retirement years. He didn’t need the money. His only motivation was, well . . . just to work and help others around the store. Grass never grew under his

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

A fascinating reprint:


Deadlines being what they are for this Sunday column, this essayist missed a momentous occasion recently. Yogi Berra accepted an honorary degree from St. Louis University and delivered the commencement speech for 1,900 graduates and 10,000 in attendance at Scottrade Center.

It's hard to imagine a more promising lingual event. Berra is to vocal communication what Don Cherry is to the fashion industry. Yogi doesn't so much command the English language as he corkscrews it. It is part of what makes the baseball


After graduating from Winfield High School in 1930, he joined and proudly served his country in the U. S. Army during World War II. He would own his own company, then later work for the U. S. Postal Service for over 23 years. He tried retirement, but that just was not his cup of tea. Loren Wade was forever in love with his wife, June, and when he wasn’t working 5 days a week at Walmart, they enjoyed fishing trips to Minnesota, bird watching, polishing rocks, dancing, and playing music. He even played in the Winfield City Band and was the oldest and longest active member. Everything he did, he did with a splash of color! When he started his own dance band, he even named it, “Loren Wade’s Music With Color.”

Some say that nothing could stop him except, perhaps, lost love. He loves working. And the people who come with it. He once told the media: “I like to meet the people and being here (at Walmart) I get to talk to a lot of people.” He also hated retirement. He often said, “All my elderly friends who stopped working -- all of them died within 6 months after they retired.” But love, whenever it is removed or erased within a person’s life, can sometimes be the ultimate taskmaster for even the hardiest of souls in the workforce. When Wade lost his

Hall of Famer and pride of the Hill one of America 's endearing figures. So here is, in its entirety, Yogi's dissertation:

"Thank you all for being here tonight. I know this is a busy time of year, and if you weren't here, you could probably be somewhere else. I especially want to thank the administration at St. Louis University for making this day necessary. It is an honor to receive this honorary degree. Is wonderful to be here in St. Louis and to visit the old neighborhood. I haven't been back since the last time I was here. Everything looks the same, only different. Of course, things in the past are never as they used to be. Before I speak, I have something I'd like to say. As you may know, I never went to college, or high school for that matter. To be honest, I'm not much of a public speaker, so I will try to keep this short as long as I can.

As I look out upon all of the young people here tonight, there are a number of words of wisdom I might depart. But I think the most irrelevant piece of advice I can pass along is this: The most important things in life are the things that are least important.

lifelong partner and loving wife, June, on February 4, 2016, he was only able to continue for a short spell. Less than 10 months after death claimed her and she left him, Loren Wade – who had perfect attendance -- failed to clock-in at Walmart. He died on November 20, 2016.

A WORLDWIDE OBSERVANCE. Loren Joe Wade’s life exemplified and perpetuated the rich legacy of Labor Day in America. In his bones, he was most proud to be proud of Labor Day celebrations at Walmart. This year is the 125th anniversary of America’s Labor Day, a day also celebrated in over 80 countries around the world. Also known as May Day in many foreign lands, some countries celebrate it on different calendar dates. WHICH U. S. PRESIDENT MADE LABOR DAY A LEGAL HOLIDAY? A. George Washington B. Grover Cleveland C. John F. Kennedy

Labor Day became a formal national holiday on June 28, 1894, when U. S. President Grover Cleveland signed it into law. This federal law pays tribute to the contributions and achievements of American workers, everywhere. Correct answer is “B” for Grover Cleveland. (Interesting Historical Note: Grover Cleveland is the only U. S. President to serve two non-consecutive terms.)

HOW AMERICANS CELEBRATE. All across the United States, people are making exciting (and relaxing) plans to celebrate the ever-popular, annual 3-day Labor Day weekend. It is a time when family and friends get together for barbecues, picnics, and even road trips which reconnect us to our past, and our kinfolk, in distant cities, in the ritual form of reunions. So much so that Labor Day remains among the busiest holiday travel days of the year with the AAA estimating almost 40-million Americans hitting the roadways or flying the skies during this long 2019 3-day weekend. And although Labor Day also typically marks the “unofficial” end of summer, the day is deeply-rooted in milestone historical events which define us today as working Americans.

This year Labor Day speeches will be given by pastors, ministers, educators, industrialists, and government officials, and all will be covered in newspapers, radio, and television, as an acknowledgement of the Labor Day general consensus that: “The vital force of labor improvement which added materially to America’s highest standards of living, and the greatest production the world has ever known, all of which has brought us closer to the realization of our traditional work ethic and the ideals of eco-

I could have gone a number of directions in my life. Growing up on the Hill, I could have opened a restaurant or a bakery. But the more time I spent in places like that, the less time I wanted to spend there. I knew that if I wanted to play baseball, I was going to have to play baseball. My childhood friend, Joe Garagiola , also became a bigleague ballplayer, as did my son, Dale I think you'll find the similarities in our careers are quite different. You're probably wondering, how does a kid from the Hill become a New York Yankee and get in the Hall of Fame? Well, let me tell you something, if it was easy nobody would do it. Nothing is impossible

until you make it possible.

Of course, times were different. To be honest, I was born at an early age. Things are much more confiscated now. It seems like a nickel ain't worth a dime anymore. But let me tell you, if the world was perfect, it wouldn't be. Even Napoleon had his Watergate.

America’s Labor Day version spun forth from Canada’s “Labour Day,” which is celebrated on the first Monday of September and of which we Americans followed suit by choosing the exact same day on our own calendar. Correct answer is “A” for Canada. MORE SENIORS ARE WORKING DURING THEIR RETIREMENT YEARS. True. False.

Correct answer is “true.” Unlike Loren Wade, mentioned at the top of this article, more seniors are returning to the American workforce out of necessity: they need the money. Sadly, according to the U. S. Federal Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), many seniors who worked most of their lives so that a comfortable “nest egg” would

allow them to enjoy their retirement years – have had their fantasy bubble burst in the face of economic hard times, such as the Great Recession, increased standards of living, increasing monthly rent payments, unforeseen medical costs, more costly upgraded insurance coverage, uninsured dental payouts, and a depleted, cashed-out 401k program which quickly evaporated. One familiar plight of seniors is when they outlive their spouses and are relegated to receiving only one Social Security check and – if they’re lucky – getting a lifelong retirement check (of substantial amount) to offset increasing costs of food, car maintenance, and often supporting their grown children who come upon hard economic times. One senior, aged 68, waited most of her adult life to retire and live the good life. She now confesses, “I’ve depleted all my assets due to unpredictable circumstances! In addition, I once paid monthly rent of $500 for just a studio apartment. Today, I’m now required to pay $1,450 per month with annual increases on the horizon! I need money! And I need to go back to work just to make ends meet.”

Not all seniors are able to get into affordable senior apartment dwellings, largely due to the caveat stating that their income must be twice the amount of their monthly rent amount. If they barely make that requirement, they have nothing left to live on or to purchase bare

September Meeting of the African Violet Society - The San Diego County African Violet Society will meet Tuesday, September 9, at 10:30am in the Vista Public Library Community Room, 700 Eucalyptus Avenue. This meeting will include handouts and a presentation by Barbara Conrad on "Why Isn't My African Violet Blooming?" There are remedies to solve this problem. Also, there will be 'mother leaves' that have baby plantlets attached and need to be separated. The club will provide all materials for this hands-on project with many plantlets to be taken home. The San Diego County African Violet Society is affiliated with the African Violet Society of America, Inc. and meets on the second Tuesday each month at 10:30am. Visitors are welcome and encouraged to attend, in a friendly and fun atmosphere, to learn how to care for African Violets. For additional information contact Barbara Conrad, bconrad999@yahoo.com. Sing with the RB Chorale! - The RB Chorale will begin rehearsals on September 10th to prepare for our annual holiday show on December 21st and 22nd at the Poway Center for the Performing Arts. Our founder and director, Pat Bean, is taking a leave of

essentials such as food, gas and electricity, automobile maintenance and gas, clothing, and other countless necessities, not to mention medical co-payments, etc. If their rent increases annually (as it does in most cases), they may be disqualified the following year as a “qualified tenant” and have to move out (many have become homeless). According to the BLS: “Since the 1990s, more seniors are returning to the American workforce. The labor force is increasing for those above age 55 years of age. Since May of 2018, 18.8% of Americans ages 65 and older (nearly 9-million) reported being employed full or part-time, a steady increase since the year 2000.”

Labor Day 2019 uniquely recognizes, honors, and celebrates the achievements of a larger, increasing number of seniors in the American workforce today. This number of seniors re-entering the workforce (out of necessity) is expected to eventually rise to record levels. In March of this year, the U. S. Census Bureau calculates that by the year 2035, there will be more Americans over age 65 than there are children under 18. LABOR DAY FOREVER CHANGED THE LANDSCAPE OF AMERICA’S WORKFORCE.

The inauguration of Labor Day as a federal holiday begat new ideas of work reforms and innovating work-

absence to address some health issues. We will miss her very much, but are fortunate to announce that Mr. Jim Tompkins MacLaine will serve as our interim director during this time. Jim has worked with Pat and the RB Chorale before and we are excited that he will continue the program format that Pat has developed during the Chorale’s 45 years. This year’s show will feature both traditional and contemporary holiday music to appeal to audiences of all ages. The Chorale is open to anyone who loves to sing. We are especially seeking tenors and basses, although everyone is welcome to join. We do not hold auditions but we do expect consistent attendance at our weekly rehearsals. If you love to sing and have Tuesday evenings free, come join this all-volunteer group of over 120 voices who really know how to put on a show. Rehearsals are held every Tuesday starting September 10th from 7-9pm at Painted Rock Elementary School, 16711 Martincoit Road in Poway. Please arrive by 6:30 so you can meet us, have your questions answered, and register. Note that in order to sing in the December shows, you must join the RB Chorale by the October 1st rehearsal.

ing conditions, all of which forever changed the entire landscape of not only the production levels of Industrial America, but the quality of life in America, as well. It wasn’t that long ago when the U. S. work environments – especially in factories and shipyards and automobile production plants – were potentially hazardous and dangerous places to work, with a much higher mortality rate than today. The advent of Labor Day-related laws brought about improved working conditions. Better safety laws, and new health/sanitary guidelines, all would parlay in providing a healthier, more productive workforce. Such reforms would actually lengthen the lifespan of the average American worker! HISTORY OF SHORTER LIVES CAUSED BY WORK-RELATED STRESS.

The enactment of Labor Day into the law books would become the incentive and spark plug which would eventually realize the 8-hour workday, or the 40-hour workweek, which lessened fatigue, discontentment, frustration, and often premature death by stroke, and heart complications, brought on by physical exertion and stress over protracted periods of time.

On August 21, 2019 at 6:48 AM, Escondido Police and Escondido Fire responded to a vehicle collision involving a pedestrian, near the intersection of Valley Parkway and Midway Drive, in Escondido. The following information is based on the driver and witness statements as well evidence at the scene. A 25-yearold male was driving a white 2006 Nissan Titan pick-up east on Valley Parkway. A 48-year-old male was crossing Midway Drive on the south side of Valley Parkway. As the driver of the Titan made a right turn onto Midway Drive, he struck the pedestrian, causing serious injuries. The pedestrian was transported by the Escondido Fire Department to Palomar Medi cal Center and his status is listed as critical condition. Alcohol and/or drugs are not considered to be a factor in this collision. The cause of this collision is under investigation by Officer Tyler Songer of the Escondido Police Department Traffic Division. Anyone who may have witnessed this collision is encouraged to contact Officer Songer at (760) 8394454. Carlsbad decides to join other North County cities in new Community Choice Energy joint powers authority

The Carlsbad City Council voted Tuesday to initiate negotiations with the cities of Del Mar, Encinitas and other potential partner agencies to create a new Community Choice Energy joint powers authority that would provide an option for local customers to purchase power that is at least 50%

from renewable sources.

“By forming partnerships throughout North County, we can provide our communities with the choice of buying more renewable energy, while achieving economies of scale,” said City Council Member Cori Schumacher, who along with Mayor Matt Hall serves on the City Council Ad Hoc Subcommittee working on Community Choice Energy. “We could sit back and watch a little while longer, but Mayor Hall and I are in agreement that this is an opportunity for Carlsbad to be a leader.”

State law allows local governments to form Community Choice Energy programs that offer an alternative to investor-owned utilities, such as SDG&E. Under this model, local governments purchase and manage their community's electric power supply, and the existing utility continues to distribute the energy to customers. On June 14, SDG&E provided a letter to the City of Carlsbad expressing its support for Community Choice Energy programs, stating, in part “… our best course is to move out of procurement and focus on the safe and reliable delivery of energy to our customers.” The cities of Carlsbad, Encinitas and Del Mar conducted a joint study of four governance models that could be used for a Community Choice Energy program:

1. Each city creates its own program 2. Create a joint powers authority with other North County cities 3. Create a joint powers authority with the City of Solana Beach, which already has a Community Choice

Energy program

4. Join a joint powers authority being established by the City of San Diego

Citing the commonalities shared by North County cities and existing relationships, the Carlsbad City Council decided to go with the option of forming a joint powers authority with other North County cities. Specifically, Carlsbad will negotiate with the cities of Del Mar and Encinitas on an agreement that includes the following conditions: 1. Equal voting, meaning each agency would get one vote, regardless of size or other factors. Some regional agencies use a weighted voting system where larger cities have a bigger say in decisions. 2. Equal cost sharing formula for the work leading up to the program launch. 3.

2021 program launch date.

4. A minimum of 50% of the energy must come from renewable sources. SDG&E’s supply is currently made up of approximately 45% renewable sources.

5. JPA membership for the cities of Escondido, Oceanside, San Marcos, Solana Beach and Vista, if they decided to join later, would be approved under the same terms as the original partners. Solana Beach has already implemented a stand alone Community Choice Energy Program, and the other cities are in an early stage of studying whether or not to pursue a CCE program. Start up costs under the joint powers authority are eswtimated to be in the area of $1.25 million.

We absolutely fell "head over heels" in love with the Red Skelton cover story written by your writer Frederich Gomez. As my youngest son says, "It has become quite the buzz around town!" And it doesn't matter if you grew up with Red Skelton or not because the story is so universal and powerful and makes anyone, anywhere feel so emotionally moved and inspired. With all the biographies I read on Red Skelton I never knew these most amazing facts on his personal life! My goodness, from "UFOs" to

However, it does become evident that Mary has some problems. She will often ask me 5-6 times a day what day it was, sometimes what year it is, she will ask for the keys to the car as she wants to run out for groceries or go shopping (she is not allowed to drive) or she'll want to go to the bank (she's not allowed to do any financial transactions), she will often forget to close doors when the air conditioning is on and has to be reminded to keep them closed so we don't lose the cooled air. Mary is what is known as a "high functioning dementia patient," but that term is somewhat misleading. We have to be careful with her in the kitchen. She has been known to let a pot of water boil away and then we are treated to that lovely aroma of burnt teflon. She loses her purse four or five times a day - she has brought me breakfast three times in the space of 15 minutes (and I accept it; I don't want to hurt her feelings) . . .

Time was when Mary and I were just two old married folk - celebrating our 30th anniversary.

When I deny her the car keys, or refuse to take her to the bank, she gets infuriated. (Nothing displays "angry" as much as an angry Scots lassie . . .) But the good news is, 10 minutes later she has forgotten the argument/dispute and is asking me . . . "would you like a wee cup of tea, dad?"

Doing some tidying up of my office and came across this letter (see below) I wrote Mary on June 19, 1990, our 30th anniversary. Some things have changed since then . . . but a lot still stays accurate.

Since the above was written Mary and I would go on to divorce 10 years later. We are still divorced, technically, but we are once again living together.

I moved back into the home three years ago as Mary had come down with dementia and needed someone to look after her; nobody could do it better than me so I stepped in. Though divorced for 19 years Mary and I always remained close friends. I would see her frequently - so it was not a difficult transition to moving back into

benefits, and the eventual minimum-wage increases due to higher living standards, all would be realized in greater degrees as time passed. According to retrieved U. S. Government Labor Statistic Files: “Back when the U. S. government first tracked workers’ hours in 1890, full-time manufacturing employees worked a backbreaking 100 hours each week. Years of pressures from labor organizers, along with changes from companies like Ford Motor Company, reformed working conditions in the United States and protected workers from schedules that endangered their health and safety.”

With improved working conditions, Americans also opted to work more overtime for added pay, a positive incentive which strengthened Industrial America. Recent data indicates that the typical American worker today is no longer adhering to an 8-hour workday. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average American today works 44 hours per week, or 8.8 hours per day. A recent Gallup poll put the average number at 47 hours per week, or 9.4 hours per day, with many saying they work 50 hours per week. TIMELINE EVENTS:

1916: On September 3, 1916, the Adamson Act was passed by Congress, establishing an 8-hour work day with additional pay for overtime for interstate railroad workers. 1926: The Ford Motor Corporation recognizes low morale and overall lower production levels due to fatigue of over-worked employees. As such, the Ford Corporation issues a 5-day, 40-hour workweek, a newsworthy move by founder and business titan, Henry Ford. Ford, himself, issues a statement: “It is high time to rid ourselves of the notion that leisure time-off for workmen is either ‘lost time,’ or a class privilege.” As a consequence, worker morale – as well as production levels – went upward. Other industrial plants learned a negative lesson by failing to follow Ford’s example. Workers were now speaking-out because they had viewed reforms elsewhere in America and clamored to be included. 1937: A General Motors strike at a

Not all such implementation would take effect until much later, according to the U. S. Department of Interior and the U. S. Senate. ‘AMERICA’S ASSEMBLY LINE REVOLUTIONIZES LIVING STANDARDS.

While Henry Ford may not have invented the concept of the assembly line, he no doubt improved on the idea. One of the first proponents of the American assembly line was Ransom E. Olds, who created his own version in 1901 to produce “horseless carriages” at a faster pace. And he did. His factory increased production to over 6 times its previous level! The factory’s output of 425 automobiles in 1901 increased to 2,500 automobiles in 1902.

Henry Ford would later improve on Olds’ idea by installing moving conveyor belts and dividing the process of assembling a car into 45 steps. That cut the time of producing one Model T automobile from 1 ½ days to an unbelievable 93 minutes! my/our advice in time and/or what advice I/we did provide wasn't soon enough to reverse the seemingly inevitable! All the very best, Fred III 8-21-2019 Marie Callender’s Restaurant in Escondido, CA closed August 7. 2019

We're naturally so very sorry to learn that the Marie Callender's Restaurant closed very recently in Escondido. CA. We learned about it indirectly from "The Paper" and Alan Skuba, former Mayor of Escondido, and former owner of KNOWN Radio. Skuba said, "We opened Callender's (#66) November 15, 1976--Bankrupt August 7, 2019--43 years. Our interest in #66 was sold in the late 80's. He had mostly good memories of the eatery as did we too. Conversely, my striking spouse and I don't profess to be omniscient and we obviously detest to see anyone go out of business, but it's a fact of life. My wife and our lovely daughter, when she was young, enjoyed many meals at Marie Callender's at other southern CA locations especially during the 70's and 80's, but apparently the concept became prohibitively too expensive to sustain a continuing profitable stream of clientele. My striking spouse and I don't profess to be omniscient, but according to us non-restaurant experts at least this restaurant at this location it was imminently inevitable. Why?

The concept for assembly lines is a very old idea dating back over 9 centuries! In the year 1104, the Venetian Arsenal (located in the city of Venice, Italy today), operated on an early assembly line concept. Ships moved down a canal and were fitted by the various shops they passed. At the peak of its efficiency in the early 1500s, the Venetian Arsenal employed over 16,000 workers who could produce almost one entire ship each day! Centuries later, other assembly line concepts were developed by different countries. One English factory used a moving assembly line (predating Henry Ford’s concept) in 1853. The factory used a moving concept called the “flow” assembly line or “The Long Shop” where a boiler from a foundry was placed on a starting line and then it slowly progressed, moving through the building as it passed through various assembly stages where parts were added for its eventual completion. When the boiler or other product had reached the end of the shop – voila! – it was completed! THE FIRST U. S. STATE TO MAKE LABOR DAY AN OFFICIAL HOLIDAY WAS: A. California. B. Michigan. C. Oregon. Correct answer is “C” for Oregon.

My YELP Posting 6/14/2019

My striking spouse and I haven't visited a Marie Callender's for a considerable number of years, but when we used to reside in Palos Verdes Estates, CA, e.g., during the 70's and 80's one of our favorite weekend restaurant haunts was the Marie Callender's in San Juan Capistrano with our then young lovely daughter. Invariably, at dinner time there was a throng of customers awaiting to be served, plus wait times to be seated could be lengthy, but the wait time was invariably worth it because the tasty plentiful comfort food, the incomparable customer-oriented and genteel service and the relatively reasonably food fare price points were definitely worth it. Really! Fast forward to last Wednesday, however, in Escondido, CA and our dining experience at Marie Callender's though marginally acceptable/pedestrian was quite different. Why? Upfront, I don't profess to be a restaurant consultant, but I am a bona fide business development consultant and according to others I know more than a thing or two about turning around languishing businesses. It's obvious, or it should be obvious to almost everyone, that currently Marie Callender's is suffering perhaps similar to other similar type of restaurants such as

125th Anniversary Cont. from Page 5

Even before Labor Day was made an official federal holiday, Oregon jumped the gun by making it a legal state holiday on February 21, 1887. That same year, Colorado, Massachusetts, New Jersey, and New York, also legally adopted the holiday, 7 years before U. S. President Grover Cleveland made it a legal holiday on June 28, 1894. But the state of Oregon was the very first by making it a state holiday. THE YOUNGEST LEGAL AGE FOR A CALIFORNIA WORKER TODAY IS: A. 14 years of age. B. 15 years of age. C. 16 years of age.

This is rather a tricky question, but, if you selected “A” for 14 years of age, you are correct. California’s minimum age to work is age 14 (in most cases). According to the state’s Department of Industrial Relations, the specific rule in California requires any child under the age of 18 (a minor by law) to have a permit to work for any job.

However, it must be made clear that the State of California also provides allowances for 12 and 13-year-olds to work various types of jobs on non-school days, generally including holidays, vacations, and weekends. Below is a sampling of California businesses and minimum age policies:

STARBUCKS: Minimum age is 16 (Montana, sets their minimum age at 14). McDONALD’S: Depending on each store’s policy, the minimum age is 14, but, the store is free to opt for an older employee. WALMART: Applications vary, but, generally speaking, you must be at least 16 years of age to work at Walmart and a minimum age of 18 to work at Sam’s Club. (Note: During the late 1800s, children as young as 5-years-old worked in factories and mines. Child Protection Labor Laws have changed to protect the welfare of children since then.) WHAT IS THE MOST COMMON (LARGEST) JOB POSITION IN AMERICA’S WORKFORCE? A. Retail salespeople. B. Cashiers. C. Office clerks. D. Fast food preparers & service workers. E. Waiters & waitresses.

By sheer total numbers, the largest and most common job in America is “A” for retail salespersons. Followed in exact transmission order above: cashiers, office clerks, fast food service workers, and waiters/waitresses.

SAN DIEGO NORTH COUNTY CITIES WITH HIGHEST TOTAL WORKFORCE. 1. Oceanside (pop. 174,811) employs c. 80,300.

2. Escondido (pop. 152,213,000) employs c. 71,644. 3. Vista (pop. 99,500) employs c. 48,100. 4. San Marcos (pop. 93,500) employs c. 43,600. 5. Poway (pop. 49,900) employs c. 23,500.

Generally speaking, the larger the population, the larger the workforce. In terms of workers in proportion to population, Poway has the highest workforce, followed by Vista, San Marcos, Escondido, and Oceanside. LABOR DAY IS ONE OF THE DEADLIEST WEEKENDS FOR FATAL CAR ACCIDENTS?

While 4th of July and New Year’s Eve are among the most dangerous “single days” to be driving on U. S. roadways, Labor Day weekend spans 3-days and, therefore, claims car-related fatalities averaging 308 or more each year. With this deadly figure threatening to increase to record numbers the public is strongly advised to adhere to 3 primary rules of driving during these dangerous travel times: 1. Drive sober. 2. Do not text or engage in other distracting activities while driving. 3. If tired, pull over safely and call your relatives that you are running late or may have to seek overnight lodging and continue driving the next day.

May all of you have a happy and safe Labor Day weekend. God bless all of you, each and everyone. And may God bless our American workforce everywhere.

A Win for Homeowners

In a big win for California homeowners, the State Supreme Court upheld lower court rulings that direct the state to return $331 million it diverted from Californian's with mortgages hurt by negative lending practices during the economic downturn.

In 2012, the State of California received $410 million from a lawsuit involving the nation’s five largest mortgage services – Ally (formerly GMAC), Citigroup, J.P. Morgan Chase, Wells Fargo and Bank of America, all of which had been charged with multiple federal lending violations. The settlement was intended to provide funding for legal aid, foreclosure hotlines, consumer education and efforts combatting financial fraud. However, the State of California decided to divert $331 million to pay off unrelated debts, including housing bonds, which in some cases were enacted more than 10 years before the 2012 mortgage settlement. A coalition that included representatives of the Asian American and Latino communities sued California and won in two court cases, but delays continued. The Legislative majority even passed a bill (SB 861), that attempted to block the court rulings that benefitted homeowners. Thousands of homes were lost

you won't get what you want unless you want what you get. Some will choose a different path. If they don't want to come along, you can't stop them. Remember, none are so kind as those who will not see. Keep the faith and follow the Commandments: Do not covet thy neighbor's wife, unless she has nothing else to wear. Treat others before you treat yourself. As Franklin Eleanor Roosevelt once said, 'The only thing you have to fear is beer itself.'

Hold on to your integrity, ladies and gentlemen. It's the one thing you really need to have; if you don't have it, that's why you need it. Work hard to reach your goals, and if you can't reach them, use a ladder.

Half the lies you hear won't be true, and half the things you say, you won't ever say.

As parents you'll want to give your children all the things you didn't have. But don't buy them an encyclopedia, make them walk to school like you did. Teach them to have respect for others, especially the police. They are not here to create disorder, they are here to preserve it.

Throughout my career, I found good things always came in pairs of three. There will be times when you are an overwhelming underdog. Give 100 percent to everything you do, and when that's not enough, give everything you have left 'Winning isn't everything, but it's better than rheumatism.' I think Guy Lombardo said that. Finally, dear graduates and friends, cherish this moment; it is a memory you will never forget. You have your entire future ahead of you. Good luck and Bob's speed."

while the state was trying to justify its illegal diversion of funds. California has a surplus of over $20 billion, and a Rainy Day Fund of over $19 billion, but still tried to divert money aimed at helping people threatened with losing their homes. This is totally unacceptable!! And now that the State Supreme Court has spoken, California must come into full compliance with court mandates.

Last month, myself, as Assembly Republican Leader and the Senate Republican Leader sent a letter (https://bit.ly/2zbw5wI ) to Governor Newsom requesting full details of his plan to bring California into compliance with court rulings. In a matter that impacts so many, full disclosure and transparency are not negotiable. 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.

There were 3 good arguments that Jesus was Black: 1. He called everyone brother. 2. He liked Gospel. 3. He didn't get a fair trial.

But then there were 3 equally good arguments that Jesus was Jewish: 1. He went into His Father's business. 2. He lived at home until he was 33. 3. He was sure his Mother was a virgin - and his Mother was sure He was God. But then there were 3 equally good arguments that Jesus was Italian: 1. He talked with His hands. 2. He had wine with His meals. 3. He used olive oil. But then there were 3 equally good arguments that Jesus was a Californian: 1. He never cut His hair. 2. He walked around barefoot all the time. 3. He started a new religion. But then there were 3 equally good arguments that Jesus was an American Indian: 1. He was at peace with nature. 2. He ate a lot of fish. 3. He talked a lot about the Great Spirit. But then there were 3 equally good arguments that Jesus was Irish: 1. He never got married. 2. He was always telling stories.

3. He loved green pastures.

But the most compelling evidence of all: 3 proofs that Jesus was a Woman: 1. He fed a crowd at a moment's notice when there was virtually no food. 2. He kept trying to get a message across to a bunch of men who just didn't get it. 3. And even when He was dead, He had to get up because there was still work to do! (Can I get an AMEN, here!)

Mimi's, e.g., too with cost push pricing that is leaving them priced noncompetitively with their current level of diminished business volume. Why?

On this Wednesday late afternoon/early evening occasion we were afforded what appeared to be/purported to be, a rather enticing two for the price of one entree option as long as we purchased two drinks. Both my spouse and I opted for the Turkey dinner that was priced at $16.99 plus we had two iced teas that were priced at $2.99 each. While the food was fair to good but not plentiful and/or memorable, I respectfully believe the relatively high price points of the entrees are symptomatic of the cogent and compelling reasons why Marie Callender's has experienced numerous restaurant closings and an overall denouement within its business at various locations. As a result, with a generous but justifiable gratuity our bill came to around $30, plus if we didn't have the two for one "entree deal" purportedly our bill would have been probably close to $50 that in our estimation isn't sustainable to obtain a repetitive support base and especially when compared to other local restaurant alternatives such as either various Souplantation/Sweet Tomatoes, Golden Corrals or various Chinese Buffet restaurants. Currently there is also a $2.29 a la carte soup and salad charge or an unlimited salad extra charge of $4.99 that simply put is noncompetitive and unsustainable to satisfactorily increase significantly sales volume and ultimately to achieve more profitability in our estimation. One of the things that I think that principals of Marie Callender's should do, therefore, is to have some ubiquitous special senior pricing because it seemed as if most of the customers who joined us on this particular afternoon and early evening were gentrified, and I respectfully believe that if Marie Callender's could/would price its meals so that two [especially seniors] could have an entree, a soft

challenges - but there are also rewards. One of the biggest challenges is that I'm no longer living with Evelyn - my soul mate for about 16 years. We still see each other often, 4-5-6 times a week - but we can't go on a cruise, we can't get away for a weekend. I have to be here to take care of and look after Mary. Evelyn totally understands and is supportive. I know for a fact had I not moved back 'home' Mary would have died. When I came home she was skin and bone; she wouldn't eat but would drink wine 2-3 days in a row. She had been in hospital three times in the prior year. After much work and patience, and at least two other trips to the hospital, both Scott, our eldest son, and I, were able to put some meat on Mary's bones. She is now about 112 lbs., looks good, dresses well, and can carry on a conversation (though she will often forget that conversation 10 minutes later).

Not sure who is going to pass away first, her or me. I worry about what will happen to Mary if I predecease her. She does as well. "Who's gonna take care of me if you die?" I've arranged for financial support through my successor trustee to my living trust; I've arranged for Mary's sister and brother-in-law to act as facilitators to ensure Mary is well cared for - up to and including sending Mary back home to Scotland to live in a nursing home. Life ain't easy when you get to be an old timer.

Historically Speaking by Tom Morrow

Is it True What They Say About ‘Dixie?’

Here’s a story out of the history books you may have slept through in school.

In 1763, two rather obscure surveyors settled a border dispute between prominent families that involved Delaware, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Maryland. Today, the demarcation line drawn for the map of Colonial America serves as a border depicting “The North,” and “The South.”

The names of those two surveyors have lived on through a civil war to present-day America. The survey line drawn by Charles Mason and Jeremiah Dixon is the unofficial cultural border separating the north from the southern states. As a result, the term “Dixie” came into being and has since been a term designating the southern states.

But until the end comes, we're back together and working things out as best we can. For the most part, life has been good to me. A few bumps and bruises, but no major complaints.

I'm glad to have been on this planet for as long as I have been, and grateful for the wonderful family and good friends I've been blessed with. And I'm glad Mary was, and is, a major part of my life. It makes life a wee bit easier. Peace.

The dispute was created in 1681, by England’s King Charles II, when he granted a colony charter to William Penn. Previously, a 1632, royal decree had granted Charles Calvert, Baron of Baltimore, the colony of Maryland.

Maryland's charter granted the land north of the entire length of the Potomac River up to the 40th parallel. Charles’ Pennsylvania grant caused a problem. His grant defined Pennsylvania's southern border as identical to Maryland's northern border, but described it differently because the King relied on an inaccurate map.

The terms of the Pennsylvania grant indicated that King Charles II and William Penn believed the 40th parallel would intersect the so-called “Twelve-Mile Circle” around what is today New Castle, Delaware, when in fact it falls north of the original boundaries of the City of Philadelphia, the site of which Penn had already selected for his colony's capital city.

In 1681, negotiations began to solve the problem. The next year, King Charles II proposed a compromise which might have resolved the issue, however, it was undermined by Penn when he received the additional grant of the "Three Lower Counties" along Delaware Bay, which later became the Delaware Colony, a satellite of Pennsylvania.

Years later, in 1732, the proprietary governor of Maryland, Charles Calvert, 5th Baron of Baltimore, signed a provisional agreement with William Penn's sons, which drew a line somewhere in between and renounced the Calvert claim to Delaware. But later, Lord Baltimore claimed the document he had signed did not contain the terms he agreed to, and refused to put the agreement into effect. In the mid-1730s, violence erupted between settlers claiming various loyalties to Maryland and Pennsylvania. The border conflict became known as Cresap's War.

Progress was made after a court ruling affirming the 1732 agreement, but the issue remained unresolved until Frederick Calvert, 6th Baron of Baltimore ceased contesting the claims on the Maryland side and accepted the earlier agreements. Maryland's border with Delaware was to be based on the “Trans-peninsular Line” and the “Twelve-Mile Circle” around New Castle. The Pennsylvania-Maryland border was defined as the line of latitude 15 miles south of the southernmost house in Philadelphia (on what is today South Street).

To settle the dispute, Penn and Calvert hired British astronomer Charles Mason and surveyor Jeremiah Dixon to survey the newlyestablished boundaries between the Province of Pennsylvania, the Province of Maryland, and the Delaware Colony. It cost the Calvert family of Maryland and the Penn family of Pennsylvania an enormous amount of money to have the 244mile border surveyed, but the two families considered it money was well-spent because there was no other way of establishing land ownership between the two colonies. After Pennsylvania abolished slavery in 1781, the western part of the colony and the Ohio River became a border between Virginia (today West Virginia), separating slave and free states. Delaware retained its slavery status until the 13th Constitutional Amendment was ratified in 1865. West Virginia became a state following the Wheeling Conventions of 1861, at the start of the Civil War. Delegates from the Unionist counties of northwestern Virginia decided to break away from Virginia, which also included secessionist counties in the new state. West Virginia was admitted to the Union on June 20, 1863, and was a key border state during the war. West Virginia was the only state to form by separating from a Confederate state, the first to separate from any state since Maine separated from Massachusetts, and was one of two states admitted to the Union during the Civil War (the other being Nevada) Today, various survey markers can be found along the four-state borders, some of private property, so owner permission is necessary to see them. The words to that old Al Jolson song will play forever: “Is it true what they say about ‘Dixie?”

Well, yes … if you know your history.

Simply put, I think Marie Callender’s if it takes/makes the right/correct pricing measures and continues it same quality of food fare it could reverse what appears to me to be a dwindling bordering on a death-knell sales volume. /s/Jutta and Fred Harden III Rancho Santa Fe, CA So sad...

P.S. Our very proficient and pleasant server was Monica and we also learned that/chatted briefly with one of the other servers, Iris, at this Marie Callender's location. Personable, pleasant and proficient Iris used to be employed by Hometown Buffet for a number of years in San Marcos, CA before joining Marie Callender's in Escondido. We were naturally surprised and quite delighted to see Iris once again. We're naturally also moreover saddened that not only many people probably have lost their jobs at Marie Callender's in Escondido as a direct result of the restaurant closing, but that notably especially Iris has to endure the rigmarole again of searching for another suitable job as a direct result of another restaurant closing where she was employed.

The Controversial 1909-SVDB Penny

Have you ever heard the saying “a penny for your thoughts”? As I thought about the topic for this current column, my first impulse was to write about an item related to the Fourth of July. Hmm…, I said to myself. Maybe I should write about the Statue of Liberty. I researched the Statue, and the immortal 1889 poem of Emma Lazarus, but I soon dissed that idea. After all, even though there are several replica Statues of Liberties around the world, how many have actually been owned by a collector? Get the idea?

Then I considered writing about Old Glory, but thought I might save that for a later time. I finally decided to write about a good old American coin. But not just any old penny, nickel, dime, quarter, or even silver dollar. A coin that collectors often wait for months or even years to go to auction. The 1909-SVDB penny. The coin that many collectors consider “The Holy Grail” of a coin collection. How could a single penny achieve such a status? Why would someone spend thousands of dollars on a single penny? In 1905, President Theodore Roosevelt felt it was time for a change of design with American coins. The Indian Head cent had been in circulation since 1859.

President Roosevelt first contacted Augustus Saint-Gaudens to redesign the penny. He had designed the 1907 Indian $10, and the Double Eagle. But SaintGaudens died in 1907, and Roosevelt needed someone else quickly for the new coin that would commemorate the 100th anniversary of Abraham Lincoln’s birth in 1809.

Roosevelt selected the New Yorker sculptor and engraver Victor David Brenner. The San Francisco mint branch was where the new Lincoln pennies were first produced. However, during the production, the Secretary of the Treasury had them stopped. Controversy soon shrouded the coin.

What caused the stoppage? There had been a complaint that the three letters VDB, the letters of the designer Victor David Brenner, took up too much room on the reverse side of the coin. (The S stood for San Francisco.) The letters were simply too prominent, and that Brenner was getting free publicity. Most people thought that the coin was just fine, even though some people did not think that the wheat stalks looked genuine. Still other people, mainly Southerners, did not want Lincoln’s likeness on a coin. They could not forget the fact that the Civil War ended over forty years earlier. The initials were soon removed. Collectors were soon to pick up on the idea that the coins that had the

Pet Parade

original initials would be worth something if they held on to them. And of course they were right. Collectors even a hundred years ago knew about supply and demand. By the time the initials were removed there had been 484,000 pennies already printed. People living in San Francisco in 1909 had first crack at them. Legend has it that one mail order entrepreneur John Zug had 25,000 of them. Legend has it that he also sold his treasure trove at close to their face value. But coin collectors still yearn to have a 1909 S-VDB Lincoln penny. There are very few that ever come to auction. People who have such a Lincoln penny hold on to them. However, the coin is on the “want list” of many a collector. There was even a story of a collector in 1958 who sorted through a million pennies. It took him a year to do so. He could not find any 1909 S-VDBs. It has been reported that in 2017 two original rolls of 1909-SVDB pennies were discovered. Of course, the prices of the existing ones fell.

Naturally, the condition of the coin plays a major role in determining its value. Using the jargon of numismatic dealers, ones who deal in coins, the 1909-SVDB coins can be brown, red brown, or red. And, these particular pennies can put at least a few thousand dollars in your pocket if they are graded a minimum of an MS64. Not too shabby.

The Pastor Says...

wants to wake up every morning with the world’s crises? I certainly don’t.

Pastor Richard Huls (Retired)

Tex is an 11-month-old Shepherd looking for a new home. He is a high-energy guy who will need lots of playtime, exercise and mental enrichment. He is also very sweet and intelligent! Tex can get jumpy when he is excited, so we recommend he go to a calm, adult-only home or one with teenage children. If you're an active person looking for an active companion, consider adopting Tex from our Escondido Campus! His adoption fee includes his neuter, current vaccinations, permanent microchip identification, a certificate for a free veterinary exam, waived enrollment fee for medical insurance from PetFirst and a license for residents in the city limits of Carlsbad, Del Mar, Encinitas, Escondido, Imperial Beach, Oceanside, Poway, San Diego, San Marcos, Santee, Solana Beach and Vista. Tex 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.

We should all hope that the penny for our thoughts is a 1909-SVDB. Think positive my friend.


There is a lot of hype these days with the Democrat candidates, vying for the Presidency in 2020. They all meet to share their opinions, promises, and views on about every subject possible, as well as taking jibes at our present President. It seems a bit early for all of this, especially because the election is one year away. By the time of the election, most, if not all the issues, will be passé such as climate change, immigration, health care, racism, and even whether one has been or is part of the American Indian Heritage. What I hear and see is not a showcase of character and personality, but rather a comedy of entertainment by individuals who think they want to be President. Quite frankly, do they have a clue as to what the job is or demands? Who in their right mind

So what is it we want in our present and next President? – more promises, goodies, government control, less government control, tweets, intelligence, or great profile? I propose a list of virtues, a model of character, and a discipline of behavior, based on Psalm 61, which is a prayer for a nation’s leader. This is not to say one shouldn’t have an education, experience, wisdom, or political acumen, but it does give us something to consider. Here is the list as seen through the eyes of the author:

Seeking God in prayer Calling on God in times of stress Standing on something greater than the self Having God as a refuge and strength Defeating the enemy with God’s help Abiding in God’s presence Building on a National spiritual heritage Trusting the future to God Having confidence in loving-kindness and truth Acknowledging God’s blessings with gratitude daily.

With these qualities it won’t matter if our next President is Democrat or Republican, male or female, rich or poor, or racially indifferent.

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

San Marcos • Mayor Rebecca Jones New in North City

It’s an exciting time in San Marcos, and our dynamic North City neighborhood now boasts tantalizing new restaurants, a modern co-working space, a cider-tasting room, beautiful apartment homes, the new San Marcos Chamber of Commerce office, plenty of parking, and more.

In addition, construction of the new pedestrian bridge is nearly complete, and the California State University Extended Learning Building will open its doors for the fall semester.

A stately, 100-year-old oak tree was relocated to North City Drive to greet visitors with a nod to Twin Oaks Valley, said to be named after a legendary oak with two trunks. Plus, a revised Campus Way is now open with expanded sidewalks and refreshed landscaping. There’s never been a better time to live, visit, work or build a business in San Marcos. If you haven’t had the chance to check out the fresh improvements in North City, we look forward to welcoming you soon!

Vista • Mayor Judy Ritter

New Honda Dealership Opens

The Norm Reeves Honda Superstore which has been under construction on West Vista Way since last August, opened its doors on August 28. We welcome the new dealership to our city. Norm Reeves Honda is selling both new and used cars, and the dealership also include a parts and service department. The business has employed about 100 people to date which is good for our local economy and for the employees. The sales tax revenues the City will received from the dealership will be used to support city services such as fire, law enforcement, streets, senior, and youth services.

Economic Development is a top priority for the City of Vista. With the Ayers Hotel under construction in the Business Park, the new Honda dealership opening, and other projects in the works, Vista continues to draw businesses that are reshaping the city and creating a positive economic environment. In addition, many new restaurants, including Culichi Town in Vista Village and Dunkin Donuts on W. Vista Way are popping up around town. From large national companies on our commercial corridors to charming downtown businesses, restaurants, and breweries, we welcome them all!

Greetings Escondido,

I had the opportunity to visit the Springs of Escondido in celebration of National Senior Citizens Day. I went with our Deputy Mayor Consuelo Martinez. We had a great lunch and a great time talking with all the residents. We learned a lot and received some good ideas on how to keep improving Escondido.

I also had a meeting with Congressman Levin of the 49th district. It was a small group of the Route 78 mayors and their City Managers. We had a good discussion, and talked about some of the most challenging issues we have facing us in North County. I was very pleased with his interest and responses. Also, of note from that conversation was the comment that both parties are working with each other. I was very encouraged by those words because that is not what we see on the news. I am one of those people that believe you can work together, disagree on some things and still move forward. The common good and common purpose are exclusive of partisanship. Semper Fi,

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