Recently, there was a titanic air show at Genessee, New York. This “gathering of eagles” brought in WWII aircraft from all over the United States and Canada. Aircraft from all American military branches were there, along with combat fighters and bombers from the RAF, the Soviet Air Force, the Luftwaffe, and the Imperial Japanese Army and Navy. It was warbird heaven. Try as I might, I couldn’t adjust my schedule to attend. Feeling somewhat like the kid who didn’t get picked for the team, I helped get our bomber tuned up, spit-shined, and polished. I was pretty dispirited when they left. I smiled and waved when they took off, never telling anyone how disappointed I felt. I watched until they flew out of sight, then quietly went home.
When our crew returned several days later, they brought with them a story that put my misery in its proper perspective. Just when you think that you have troubles, you always seem to hear about someone who is facing a real trial.
He was an old man, suffering from serious depression and an incurable illness. His future, such as it was, looked grim. Just a few weeks earlier he had been diagnosed as having Hodgkin’s disease.
In an effort to cheer their father up, his sons had driven him from Massachusetts to the great air show taking place in Genessee. Their dad had been a Navy combat pilot in WWII. He’d often told them stories about his days as a younger man, a man they’d never met and perhaps never really believed existed. But they knew how is eyes would light up when he talked about his wartime experiences. Dad became young again, if only for a moment, as he remembered being strong and healthy, fighting against fascism so many years ago. The boys hoped that being around the old warbirds would lift his spirits for at least a day.
His sons, loving and attentive, helped him out of the car somewhere on one of the fields reserved for parking. He’d been glancing up more frequently as they go closer to the airfield. With a veteran’s practiced eye, he identified the aircraft as they wheeled and banked over the field or taxied to the parking positions. He’d already told his boys that “his” plane wouldn’t be there. They weren’t saved after the war like the more glorified The Paper - 760.747.7119
Flying Fortresses or Liberators. Still, young men by the thousands had flown and fought in “his” type of aircraft, and not all of them had made it home. He knew that the model he flew was only a memory shared by a dwindling band of old men like himself. His own sons had never seven seen one of the planes that carried him to war. For the most part, no one knew they ever existed. The old planes, like the old man himself, were fading away.
Once they had been young, the hope and pride of a nation. But now…no one cared anymore.
They walked slowly along the crowded flight line. Over the rumble of the engines, Dad gestured for his boys. “That one’s a B-17,” he’d explain, “we had those in the Pacific, too. There’s a P-38 Lightning. You can always tell by the twin tail booms. They were good escorts. They went in with us sometimes. We were glad to have them around.”
Further down the line they passed a Japanese Zero. The old man glared at it silently for a moment, some strange emotion passing briefly across his face. His sons didn’t know if it was grief, fear, anger, or a combination of all. He turned and without a backward glance continued his slow walk. The memories were becoming stronger for him. The breeze carried the scent of rubber, aviation gas, and hot oil, just like his base used to smell. Planes jockeying into position
along the line revved their engines, sending gale-force prop wash blowing across the tarmac as people clutched at their hats and leaned into the wind. Overhead was the deepthroated roar of ancient propellerdriven fighter formations passing in review, a sound unlike any other. Air show announcers all over the country call it the same thing: The Sound of Freedom. The father and his sons ambled along, pausing occasionally to look up at whatever was flying over. After one particularly low pass by a British Spitfire, the boys turned to remark to Dad and saw him standing as if he were frozen in place. He had walked arund the aircraft they’d been looking at and was staring like a man possessed with the next plane in line. A look of incredulous wonder began to spread across his face… “My God,” he whispered. “My God, there it is. It’s…someone…how…I never thought that I’d ever…” “What is it, Dad? Are you okay?”
He seemed to stand taller and his shoulders squared. “Okay? Hell yes, I’m okay! THERE’S MY PLANE!”
It just so happed that “his” plane was also “our” plane. Lockheed PV-2 “Harpoons” were never immortalized by Hollywood like the Flying Fortresses of “12 O’Clock High,” the B-25 Mitchells of “Catch-22” or any of a score of other films. Why this is

so remains a mystery, for the missions they flew were some of the most heroic—and harrowing—of the war. Flying out of New York, Norfolk, and Pensacola, PV-1s and 2s scoured the Atlantic for Nazi Uboats. The WWII cliché “sighted sub, sank same” is attributed to a PV-1 crew. In the Pacific theater, astonished Navy pilots soon realized that the PV-1 could actually outrun the dreaded Japanese Zeros, a feat unheard of for a medium bomber. The Lockheed’s phenomenal speed saved scores, perhaps hundreds, of American lives.
With the debut of the heavier and more stable PV-2, Marine Corps pilots and ground crews, as usual, made a few non-standard “field modifications.” This normally meant torching extra holes in the nose and welding in as many .50 machine guns as they could cram into the forward bay. The Marines also tore out the torpedo and depth charge racks in the somewhat pregnant-looking bomb bay and installed hooks for 500 pounders and napalm. As if this wasn’t enough, industrious gunneys even bolted rails under each wing and loaded them with air-to-ground rockets! Aeronautical engineers were appalled when they heard this, but soon reports came back from the combat zones of Harpoons taking on everything from subs and fighters to tanks and heavy cruisers, all with disastrous results to the enemy. The Harpoons could—and did—fight anything.

The Last Flight Cont. from Page 1 And somewhere amidst the fire and fury, somewhere between the Philippines and the Aleutians, there was a young Navy pilot who would live to be taken to Gennessee, New York by his sons…
The old man stood at the front of the plane and, after a long moment, simply reached up and placed his hand on the underside of the nose. “I never knew they saved one,” he said softly. “I never thought I’d see one again.” To his sons, the man sounded as if he had suddenly found something priceless that he had lost many years ago.
One of his boys slipped around to the port side of the harpoon. He’d seen an open hatch and one of our crewmen standing near it. The younger man had decided to ask, plead—beg if he had to—for permission to let his father climb aboard a Harpoon just one more time. Please, please…
To his surprise and delight, he was informed that we welcome visitors aboard our plane. In fact, we encourage them to climb in and take a look around. It’s no fun having a bomber if you can’t show it off once in a while, right? Besides, we’re maintaining a living piece of American history, and we’re rather proud of that fact. The fellow who climbed into the hatch did so with the grace and famil-

Father O'Malley rose from his bed one morning. It was a fine spring day in his new parish. He walked to the window of his bedroom to get a deep breath of the beautiful day outside. He then noticed there was a donkey lying dead in the middle of his front lawn. He promptly called the local police station. The conversation went like this:
"Good morning. This is Sergeant Jones. How might I help you?"
"And the best of the day te yerself. This is Father O'Malley at St. Ann's Catholic Church. There's a donkey lying dead in me front lawn and would ye be so kind as to send a couple o'yer lads to take care of the matter?" Sergeant Jones, considering himself
iarity of a young naval aviator, not an old man suffering from Hodgkin’s disease. Our crewman offered to show the old gent around and point out objects of interest in the plan, a urtesy we perform for all visitors, but one of the man’s sons tugged at his sleeve. “Dad knows his way around in here. Can we talk outside for a moment?” Our crewman was somewhat bewildered, but he was beginning to realize that something out of the ordinary was going on. He’d seen that eerie look in the old fellow’s eyes and it was plain that these other two guys wanted to explain his behavior. He hopped out of the hatch and listened to them. They told our man about their dad’s crushing depression upon learning of his incurable disease, how they had hoped to just cheer him up a little, and how overjoyed he was to see that a bunch of characters from Indiana were actually flying around the country in a plane that he thought no longer existed.
Our man knew there was more to it than that. There was a lot of happiness and relief in these men, too. Their mission was accomplished: against all odds, they’d broken the black spell on their father. While the old aviator was still merrily poking about in our plane, a couple more of our crew strolled up munching on hamburgers. “What’s up? Anything going on?” “Yeah. Wait’ll you hear this…”
to be quite a wit and recognizing the Irish accent, thought he would have a little fun with the good father, replied, "Well now Father, it was always my impression that you people took care of the last rites!"
There was dead silence on the line for a moment. Father O'Malley then replied: "Aye,' tis certainly true; but we are also obliged to notify the next of kin first, which is the reason for me call." HELP REQUESTED:
A friend of mine has two tickets for the 2017 Super bowl. They are box seats plus airfares and hotel accommodations. He didn't realize when he bought them that this is the same day as his wedding - so he can't go. If you're interested and want to go instead of him, it's at St Peter's Church in New York City at 5 PM. Her name is Betty. She will be the one in the white dress. First time in history?
If Hilary Clinton wins the U.S. presidential election, it will be the first time in history that two U.S. presidents have slept with each other!
If Donald Trump wins the U.S. presidential election, it will be the first time in history that a billionaire moves into public housing vacated by a black family. Nothing wrong with me!
I don't trip over things, I do random
Within minutes, two of our crewmen set out to round up the rest of the gang. The old man was still climbing in and out of the plane, kicking the landing gear and inspecting the bomb bay, when they all arrived. Our whole “away team” shook his hand and took pictures of him and his boys. The old fellow’s joy was infectious, and our guys were glad to be a part of it. Then someone in the crew cam up with a brilliant idea. It was whispered from man to man and a hasty conference was held under the huge wing. Heads nodded all around. Yeah. It was agreed. They had to do this… We were scheduled to make a flight the next day for “Aviation Classics” magazine. They wanted some pictures of our rare Harpoon doing its stuff. A photographer had been sent, a swift chase plane had been reserved, and takeoff was set for the following morning. As is always the case, every seat available was already spoken for. Despite its size, and not counting the pilots and flight engineer, there are only five seats aboard our plane. She was designed as a combat aircraft, not a passenger plane. Even among the members of our organization, a flight is a rare treat. To be honest about the matter, at a fuel consumption rate of nearly two hundred gallons an hour we can’t afford much joyriding. At air shows, our fuel and other expenses are paid for by the promoters of the show so every time we lift off five lucky people get to take a “free” ride. These seats are
gravity checks. I don't need anger management. I need people to stop ticking me off. Old age is coming at a really bad time.
When I was a child I thought Nap Time was a punishment ... now, as a grown up, it feels like a small vacation.
The biggest lie I tell myself is ... "I don't need to write that down, I'll remember it."
I don't have gray hair. I have "wisdom highlights". And I am obviously very wise. My people skills are just fine. It's my tolerance for idiots that needs work.
I'm going to retire and live off of my savings. Not sure what I'll do that second week. Even duct tape can't fix stupid ... but it can muffle the sound.
Why do I have to press one for English when you're just gonna transfer me to someone in India who I can't understand anyway?
Of course I talk to myself, sometimes I need expert advice.
Wouldn't it be great if we could put ourselves in the dryer for ten minutes; come out wrinkle-free and three sizes smaller. Finkelstein and Jesus
Jesus was wandering around Jerusalem when he decided that he
always reserved well in advance, usually for our own people who’ve spend countless hours of hard work and a lot of their own money to “keep ‘em flying.” It’s a privilege we all look forward to every summer. Our crew looked at the ancient Navy pilot standing beside the Harpoon. He constantly touched the aircraft as if to assure himself that it was really there and not just a dream. There was a haunted look about him, as if he were surrounded by the ghosts of his former comrades. He had survived the Zeros, but there would be no escape from the disease that now had a grip on him. The old veteran was fighting his last battle even as they watched…
“He can have my seat,” one of our guys said softly. “Naw. You haven’t gone up for a while. Let him take mine.” Soon there was a near fight among all five over who would give up their seat. It was a point of honor. Besides, people who fly and maintain old warbirds are slightly crazy anyway.
The argument was settled and, beaming delightedly, the whole crew marched over to the man and his sons. They told him about the photo run that was scheduled for the next day and that we just, ahh, happened to have a spare seat available. Would he like to ride along on the flight?

really needed a new robe. After looking around for a while, he saw a sign for Finkelstein, the Tailor. So, he went in and made the necessary arrangements to have Finkelstein prepare a new robe for him. A few days later, when the robe was finished, Jesus tried it on -- and it was a perfect fit! He asked how much he owed.
Finkelstein brushed him off: "No, no, no, for the Son of God there's no charge! However, may I ask for a small favor. Whenever you give a sermon, perhaps you could just mention that your nice new robe was made by Finkelstein, the Tailor?" Jesus readily agreed and as promised, extolled the virtues of his Finkelstein robe whenever he spoke to the masses.
A few months later, while Jesus was again walking through Jerusalem he happened to walk past Finkelstein's shop and noted a huge line of people waiting for Finkelstein's robes.
He pushed his way through the crowd to speak to him and as soon as Finkelstein spotted him he said: "Jesus, Jesus, look what you've done for my business! Would you consider a partnership?" "Certainly," replied Jesus. "Jesus & Finkelstein it is."

The Last Flight Cont. from Page 2 The question stunned him. “Are you serious?” He looked from man to man, and their faces answered for them. They were all grinning like idiots and nodding their heads in encouragement.
The aged Harpoon pilot blinked a few times and cleared his throat. Then, with his sons standing beside him, he lifted his chin and answered. “Yes,” he said. “I’d love to go. Thanks… thank you very much.”
His sons didn’t comment on our crew’s invitation. For some reason they were suddenly having trouble with their voices. But the way they looked at our people spoke volumes on the subject of heartfelt gratitude. The men from Massachusetts stood with the men from Indiana on an airfield in New York state, and the axiom of a brotherhood among airmen demonstrated its truth once more.
The old aviator arrived at dawn the next day. Only a couple of our people were up and at the aircraft at that time, groggily sipping coffee and still yawning. One of our guys commented that the veteran pilot looked surprisingly wide awake for that early hour. He replied that most of his combat missions had begun at dawn or even earlier. Besides, he admitted sheepishly, he had been unable to sleep the whole night. “I felt like a kid waiting for Christmas morning,” he grinned.
Someone reached into a tool box and produced a thermos of coffee. The old fellow accepted a cup and sat a package down on the work bench. “I thought some of you might be interested in this.” He carefully unwrapped a tattered and patched photo album. “My boys talked me into bringing it from home when we came up here. I’m glad I have

Our crewmen took one glance inside and snapped completely awake, nearly choking on their coffee. They stared at the book, then at each other.
The album was a gold mine. The then-young Navy pilot had taken dozens of black and white photos of his aircraft, both inside and out. Equally important, he’d taken many close-ups of the mechanics at work on his forward island bases. We had only been able to guess at where some of the equipment was mounted in the interior of our plan, and how some of the field-expedient repairs had been accomplished under combat conditions. This book could allow us to rebuild and refurbish our plane to her exact wartime appearance, the goal of all military aircraft restorers. We have a thick manual for the bird, but it’s no longer possible to do everything “by the book.” Lockheed hasn’t made parts for this aircraft for over fifty years. We knew that Navy and Marine mechanics had accomplished wonders with baling wire, tin cans, and friction tape: the big question was how? Which backyard repairs could we get away with and which ones could cause a crash? What do you do when a control cable snaps at 12,000 feet or the port engine starts blowing oil or the landing gear jams halfway down? Our crewmen suddenly realized that the fellow sipping coffee and looking calmly back at them was not merely an old man suffering from Hodgkin’s disease. He was also a retired United States Navy officer, a combat experienced aviator, and a governmenttrained expert on Lockheed PV-2 Harpoons. A few hours earlier, they felt as if he needed them. Now it dawned on our crew that they needed him—badly—and the knowledge he had carried for nearly half a century. “Sir, when the rest of our people get here, would you consider giving us a, uhh, briefing?”

Meetings start at 9am, are held at the Oceanside Senior Center, 455 Country Club Lane, and open to all anglers age 50 and above. Secrist is an expert on two speed reels and fishing with the new spider wire type of lines. He also has written numerous articles for many fishing publications on different types of lures to target various species of fish. He started his fishing career at an early age fishing with his dad, and has been lucky enough to have pursued fishing on both coasts and all over the world. The Oceanside Senior Anglers is Southern California’s largest fishing club. For more information, visit OSAnglers.org. Kayak Fishing with Senior Anglers - Jim Sammons, a leader in the sport of kayak
He sat his cup down and smiled. “Be glad to.”
Later that morning they were assembled around the elderly pilot, hanging on his every word. His constant touching and staring at the aircraft had not been the ghostly reminiscences of days gone by, but a careful and professional examination. Instinctively, he’d been giving our Harpoon a pre-flight inspection. He’d been quietly “grading” us on our reconditioning, maintenance, and craftsmanship. He’d noted where we had done well—and where there was need for improvement. Our crew jotted don page after page of memos on everything from how the navigator’s table folded up to which hydraulic lines to inspect frequently. To no one’s surprise, he said that some portions of the manual were nonsense, then went on to tell us how to do things the right way.
He gave our pilots detailed information on how to crash-land the plane in the event of total power failure. Harpoons are not noted for crash survivability, something we all keep in the back of our minds. His crew in the Pacific had been lucky to have him at the controls. He ran out of fuel once and had to belly in on a beach. The plane was a total loss, but the young Navy flyer saved his crew. Someday—God forbid—we may have to try it ourselves.
The veteran continued on for some time without any apparent fatigue or effects from his illness. Presently a civilian aircraft noisily taxied up to the Harpoon and braked to a halt. Two men clambered out of the plane, the photographer and his pilot. They exchanged information with our pilots on how the photo flight was to handled, shook hands, and hopped back in their plane. The Cessna turned and began to taxi back out to the runway.

Flight line workers began to circle the Harpoon, warning spectators away from our bomber and clearing a path for it to roll out from the parking area. Our pilots and engineer climbed up into climbed up into the cockpit and began their pre-flight checklist. Two of our people, one at each engine, stood guard outside with fire extinguishers while four more eagerly entered the plane.
For the first and only time in their lives, the old man’s sons watched him climb into a PV-2 Harpoon. Just inside the hatch, he turned and looked at his boys for a long moment. Something seemed to pass between them for an instant, then he gave them a “thumbs up” and shut the door. He never thought that he’d see another of “his” planes and certainly never dreamed he’d fly in one again, if even only as a passenger, but fate had reserved him one more takeoff, just one more time. The last flight was under way
Our pilot shouted out his window. “Clear!” The ground crewmen stood by with the fire extinguishers, just in case. The number one starter motor engaged the flywheel, causing that eerie high-pitched whine that quickens the blood of anyone who ever heard it. Then the pistons fired, coughed, and fired again, blowing out rapid puffs of smoke as the Hamilton-Standard prop began to spin. The engine smoothed and revved to a high idle, pounding out a sound like nearby thunder. Number two engine whined, backfired, and blew out a great cloud of white smoke. Its prop remained motionless. Doubtless cursing under his breath, the pilot initiated a restart while the ground crew eyed the engine suspiciously, extinguishers at the ready.

On Monday, August 22, at 6:42 p.m., the City of Carlsbad Police Department received a report of a traffic collision involving 3 vehicles in which one had flipped over onto its roof at the intersection of Palomar Airport Road and Armada Drive. Officers responded to the scene and found a 2007 Acura MDX driven by a 20-year-old male had collided with a 1994 Chevrolet Suburban and a 2013 Volvo sedan. An initial investigation showed that the 2007 Acura entered the intersection against a red left arrow light prior to colliding with the two other vehicles. The City of Carlsbad Fire Department personnel responded to the scene, assessed the injuries to the driver of the 1994 Chevrolet Suburban and subsequently he was transported to Scripps hospital in La Jolla for treatment. The investigation is ongoing at this time. A preliminary investigation has revealed that neither alcohol/drug intoxication nor distracted driving are a factor in this case. Armed Robbery Investigation Carlsbad
On Monday, August 22, at 7:23 p.m., the City of Carlsbad Police Department received a call of an armed robbery at the Verizon store located at 880 Carlsbad Village Drive. Two males entered the store, one male

Congratulations to some of the nicest and most fun people I know! •••• Meant to add this photo in last week’s coverage of the great cocktail party and entertainment at San Marcos’s Silvergate Retirement community.

Still, it wouldn’t be the same if I didn’t get to see Hendrix whenever I dropped in at Escondido Lumber. He’s become a fixture there . . . the big, black, beautiful Hendrix.
Top equipment, technicians that know their stuff . . . one of the smartest of which is Nome, the beautiful redhead (and, I believe, the real brains behind the operation).
One of the more fascinating friends and acquaintances I’ve gained over the years while writing this column is a black guy by the name of Hendrix.
You can usually find him at Escondido Lumber, 310 S. Quince, in Escondido.
He’s a big guy . . . big, black, beautiful eyes . . . and the playful type. Often, whenever I walk in the store he’ll
No matter how busy I am I usually take time to play with Hendrix. He loves company, he loves to play; fact is, he wants to play so long that he often will interfere with me loading up on the free peanuts that Escondido Lumber has sitting out for its friends and customers.
Oh, did I happen to mention that Hendrix is a dog? He belongs to Peter and his wife, manager of the store and son of Jim and Gretchen, the long-time owners of the store.
If you’re lonely and need a friend, stop in at Escondido Lumber and ask for Hendrix. You probably won’t need to ask for him. Chances are he’ll come right up to you and drop a tennis ball at your feet - inviting you to throw it. As I said, he loves to play! ••••• Attended Doug Best’s Memorial service Saturday at the beautiful Grace Lutheran Church, 643 W. 13th, Escondido.

The Last Flight Cont. from Page 3 The flywheel built up speed again, the switch was thrown, and this time the mighty Pratt & Whitney radial roared into life, fairly bellowing strength and defiance. The whole aircraft shook visibly as the great 2,000 horsepower engines warmed up. The brakes strained to hold the ship in place while the preflight was completed, then they were gradually released and the bomber started to roll. As always, she gained speed rapidly. Halfway down the strip, the barndoor sized tail lifted and the plane seemed to balance on her main gear. Then, with the awesome sound of a warbird—the Sound of Freedom— the Harpoon thundered into the sky.
They circled the field once, gaining altitude. The chase plane fell into formation with them, the photographer taking advantage of a beautiful cloudless day. The Harpoon banked gracefully, easing back over the airfield. Together the two aircraft made repeated passes giving the cameraman every shot he could wish for. When the photo run was over, both planes slowed and dropped into a landing glide path, flaps and gear down. The smaller plane led the way, touching down well ahead of the big blue Navy patrol bomber. It was the moment our crew had been waiting for. The airspace was now clear.
The Harpoon’s gear went back up and the engines throttled forward. She picked up speed, streaked over the runway at a breathtaking fifteen feet, and rocketed back up in a tight climbing turn.
One of our ground crew grinned at the old pilot’s sons. “I think your dad is in for a little treat.” The Harpoon was now going in excess of two hundred fifty knots. The bomber stood on one wing, whirled around in a highstress turn, and dove like a falcon— straight towards the field. Her engines were audible for miles, and the vast crowd of spectators looked up as one. “What the hell are they up to?” Hot dogs and soft drinks were dropped by the score as people snatched for their cameras. The plane shrieked over the flight line, a blue streak above the Mustangs and the Liberators and that thrice-damned Zero. In the wink of an eye they blew past the throng of spectators as babies cried, women covered their ears, and children howled with delight. The slipstream sent hats, programs, and paper cups flying in every direction.
The plane rocked back on its tail and flew into the sun. The crowd squinted and tried to follow it. Eventually even the sound of the engines grew faint. The plane was gone—but to where? A few minutes passed, then someone shouted, “There! To the north!” They’d gone for altitude, and were now diving back in again. But this time something was different. The
plan was flying strangely. A teenager asked his father, “Are they in trouble?”
The Harpoon was dodging rapidly left and right and flinging itself up and down in the dive. Experienced combat pilots—and there are many at air shows—knew at first glance what the Navy bomber was doing. “Jinking” is how pilots are trained to avoid ground fire in combat. The plane was coming in under evasive action and gaining speed at an alarming rate. Two hundred sixty knots, two seventy, tow ninety…Then the aircraft straightened and flew with determined precision, seeming to aim itself at a point just opposite from the crowd on the other side of the runway.
The bomb bay doors snapped open and half dozen dark oblong shapes spilled out. Spectators gasped as the objects tumbled and fell, whistling loudly as they came. The missiles hit the field and exploded into a spectacular red and green spray. The crowd sent up a mighty cheer as they realized what they’d seen, and the sons of our passenger laughed and cheered loudest of all. Gennessee, New York had just been bombed by a planeload of Indiana watermelons.
After pulling up from its surprise “bomb run,” the Harpoon slowed to cruise speed, circled, and came back for a final pass before landing. She swooped in low and slow, one wing tipped in salute to the crowd while cameras clicked and video recorders whirred. Then the great flaps lowered, the gear came down, and the tires screeched on contact with the tarmac. The bomber taxied to the parking apron, turned, and rolled slowly to her assigned area. Flight line workers held back the crowds who surged in around her, waving, applauding, and holding children on the shoulders. The old aviator’s sons stood with our ground crew, shielding their eyes from a final wind blast as the port brake was locked, the starboard engine revved, and the plan ground-looped perfectly into exactly the same spot she had left. The engines were cut, number two giving its characteristic double backfire, and the props clattered to a halt. The elevator surfaces on the huge tail lowered and thumped softly down to their rest positions. The flight was over, the bomber now silent.
Our crew formed a semicircle around the hatch, the veteran’s sons standing expectantly in the front. For a long moment the hatch remained closed. Then the handle rotated, the door swung slowly open, and a figure appeared at the top of the access ladder. The sons looked up solemnly, as if seeing their father for the first time, He paused there, returning their gaze. Then the emotion became too great for even him to control, and his loving, joyous smile became

Improving patient access to medical care
Many people have allergies in one form or another. When we need medical help for our allergies we need it immediately, not after months of unnecessary delay because of antiquated regulations. That’s why I introduced Assembly Bill 1739, which passed the Assembly with a unanimous vote this week. AB 1739 speeds access to allergy care for Medi-Cal patients by allowing primary care doctors to use a blood test to diagnose allergies without referral to a specialist, as currently required under the program’s outdated reimbursement policies. Those policies will be brought up-todate to make them consistent with current medical standards so that blood tests are treated as equivalent to skin-prick tests for confirming an allergy diagnosis. Because of the recent expansion in the number of Medi-Cal

Joey Bosa is a Charger.
After a much publicized contract dispute caused the first round pick to miss training camp, the San Diego Chargers announced Monday that they signed the defensive end to a four-year contract. “We look forward to having Joey join us and getting him prepared as quickly as possible for the 2016 season,” said General Manager Tom Telesco.
The Bolts selected Bosa with the third overall pick in this year’s draft. A 6-5, 280-pound product out of Ohio State, the 21-year old spent three seasons with the Buckeyes totaling 150 tackles, 50.5 tackles for loss, 26 sacks, 24 quarterback hurries and five forced fumbles in 41 games.

recipients, many patients are having difficulty finding physicians who will accept their insurance. This problem is compounded for those seeking the dwindling number of specialists accepting Medi-Cal due to the state not re-instating the reimbursement rates for physicians to accept this form of insurance. The lack of specialists has forced many patients to go undiagnosed and untreated for months while waiting for an appointment with an allergist. Under AB 1739, patient health will improve and taxpayer dollars will be saved by reducing the number of unnecessary referrals to more expensive specialists and by requiring fewer office visits. AB 1739 has been forwarded to Governor Brown, who will have until September 30 to sign the bill. If you would like to weigh-in on this legislation, the Governor’s office may be contacted at: https://www.gov.ca.gov/home. php

framed by streams of tears that rolled down both cheeks. He hopped down the short ladder and into the arms of his boys. Our crew surrounded them as they gripped each other, laughing and weeping, in an impassioned, back slapping, threeway hug. The scene was best described to this writer by one of our female crew members.
“Oh, you should have seen it! These macho guys of ours in the plane came out and they were all crying. They were embarrassed by it, but they had to keep wiping their eyes. The old man was the happiest person I’ve ever seen in my life. He kept on laughing and crying at the same time and asking his boys if they saw the bomb run. They were nodding and hugging him. The ground crew was sniffing and snorting and looking at everything except each other. I finally gave up myself and said ‘What the hell?’ So I started crying too.”
The aviator told everyone within earshot how happy he was to have been with us, even if only for a short while. Another of our ladies appeared at his side and asked if he would like to join our organization. Before she could even finish the question he exclaimed, “Yes!” She pulled an application out from behind her back and, grinning, handed the old fellow a pen. He quickly read the document and signed it on the offered back of our flight engineer. After handing the paper back, he reached inside jacket. “I have my checkbook with me. I can pay my first annual dues right now and…” There was a cry of outrage and our “recruiting officer” steadfastly refused to take a cent. She looked around threateningly at the rest of the team and called for a forum. By immediate and unanimous voice vote, the veteran was made a life member of our crew on the spot, all dues waived forever. Addresses and phone numbers were exchanged. The retired naval officer was told that he could expect our first organizational newsletter within a week and that we’d stay in touch my mail, keeping him abreast of developments with the plane. He replied that he had many photographs and notes pertaining to PV-2 Harpoons that he’d send us, as well as personal observations and letters answering any questions we might have in the future.
After some time, they had to leave for the long drive back to Massachusetts. Our men shook his firm hand for the last time, our wives and girlfriends each gave him a kiss, and it was time to leave. One of the sons kept repeating to our crew, “You don’t know. You don’t know what this has cone for Dad. This has brought him back. He’s his old self again. You just don’t know…” Well, maybe we don’t. But we have a pretty good idea. We know what he did for us. Whatever else life may have in store for him the veteran will always know
that one of his planes is still flying, crewed by a new generation. And we will know that we have a friend, our senior member, who we can turn to when the skies grow dark and we need advice.

with him two hours ago. He was most anxious that you be there as well.”
A Weekend With Two Legends
In early 1983, I was director of communications for the venerable Hotel Del Coronado, across the bay from San Diego.
The historic hotel is world renowned and one of the nation’s oldest, continuously operating resorts. It still holds the record of being the largest wooden structure in America. In 1958, when I was in Navy boot camp at the San Diego Naval Training Center, I remember that Director Billy Wilder was filming “Some Like It Hot” at the Del. I kept tossing the idea of some sort of event using that movie around in my head. It had been 26 years since the film was shot at the hotel, but it was exactly 25 years since it’s release. I needed a big bash that would make news.
Planning out loud, I told my boss, “I’m going to invite Billy Wilder, Jack Lemmon, and Tony Curtis to be here as guests of honor,” I explained. “I’ll put them up in our finest suites for the weekend and build a celebration and dinner party around them.”
I ended up paying $1,500 for Billy Wilder’s phone number; Jack Lemmon was listed in the Beverly Hills directory. Tony Curtis? I had to get him out of the Betty Ford Clinic in Palm Springs. I dialed Wilder’s number and the familiar thick German voice on the other end told me I had dialed correctly. Wilder answered his own phone. I quickly told him why I was calling and that I had arranged to hold a fundraising dinner that would generate monies for the new editing suite out at San Diego State University. The staff at SDSU said they would be willing to name the facility after Wilder if he were willing to participate.
The fund-raising dinner on Saturday evening was a sell-out. More than 500 people jammed into the hotel’s big ballroom.
The black-tie affair was a smash hit. A 10-minute video of Wilder and Lemon interviews, along with clips from the movie brought a standing ovation, and the dance band capped the evening.
On Sunday morning, Wilder asked me to join him on the hotel’s garden court for breakfast. He invited Lemmon to join us — it was just the three of us. We spent nearly two hours visiting, telling stories from the various movies they had made together.
“I’ve never spent a dull moment with Billy,” Lemmon told me in confidence. “He’s the smartest and most interesting man I’ve ever known.” Earlier, I had placed a box of imported cigars in Billy’s suite. He was quite appreciative of that gesture. The only time he didn’t have a cigar in his hand was during the dinner on Saturday night.
By noon on Sunday most of the guests had departed and the biggest single event in San Diego memory had ended.
A number of years later, when the SDSU film department had finally finished the Billy Wilder Editing Facility, I was called by the school and asked if I would contact Billy and invite him to come and officially open the facililty. I was the only one who had Billy’s phone number. I felt like charging them $1,500.
When I called, Billy answered the phone. This was in 1989–six years later. “Mr. Wilder, you may not remember me, I’m Tom Morrow, the guy who set up the 25th anniversary cele…”
He had one question: “Will Mr. Lemmon be there?”
“Of course I remember you,” he interrupted. “Hey, you got any more of those great cigars?”
After a few more minutes telling of the various aspects, I hung up and quickly called Jack Lemmon’s number. It was his office and his gatekeeper told me she would pass along my request.
My “Some Like It Hot” event was important to me as it was the first of what has become standard in celebrating vintage movie anniversaries. Before my celebration, nothing of significance in that vein had been done. And I did it with two Hollywood legends.
“Absolutely, sir,” I heard myself promising. “Yes, indeed, Jack Lemmon will be there.”
Lemmon called me a couple of hours later. I told him what I had planned. He had just one question: “Will Billy be there?” “Yes, of course,” I replied. “I just talked

We will begin by diagnosing the problem. You tell us what's wrong, and we will not only confirm it, but also diagnose where the issue is stemming from.
In most cases, air conditioning problems stem back to low levels of refrigerant. Unfortunately, replacing the refrigerant will not be enough to fix the problem. If your refrigerant levels are low, we will need to determine why. If it is because of a leak, we will need to determine where the leak is coming from before we can repair it. If there is no problem with your refrigerant levels, then we will move on to rule out other issues that could be causing your air conditioner to malfunction.
For the hot days that are sure to come... now's the time to get the jump on the air conditioning season and be ready for when the temps climb and climb and climb... you'll be enjoying air conditioned comfort.

There is Gold in Them There Hills
America has shown the world what we are made of at the Olympics. Gold has been discovered in the youth and aged Americans. But is it America or only a few very determined individuals who wanted to be and are the winners? In contrast, sociologists tell us we have an epidemic of obesity, drug addiction, media device obsessions, and a society that thrives on consumerism. I ask myself where I am in the midst of all this? When I see the performances of swimmers like Michael Phelps, the youthful gymnasts, and cyclist such as Kristin Armstrong who is fortythree, I know I am not in their class. Yet, in many ways, I would
Where is the average American with these qualities? Where am I? How much are we willing to dedicate ourselves to achieve the best we can, not necessarily as a gold medalist, but our best? Perhaps the Olympians can inspire us to reach for the gold rather than mediocrity, just getting by, or living with envy. We see their victory smiles, their upraised arms, their hugs of happiness and accomplishment, and wish we could have at least some of it. We are reminded, however, of that old adage, “If wishes were horses, beggars would ride.”
Within each one of us there is a God planted seed that, if nurtured, would take us far ahead of the wishes. The Bible says that God satisfies the longing soul and fills the hungry soul with goodness. (Ps. 107:9) Whether it is seeking the gold medal, or daily practicing the virtues of life, the results will tell by our dedication. There is gold in each one of us, but it takes the best in us to get it.

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 Jim Desmond After completing significant pavement rehabilitation throughout the city, motorists traveling through San Marcos will continue to see crews working along Rancho Santa Fe Road as part of an extensive pavement makeover. With an anticipated completion of early winter, Rancho Santa Fe Road from State Route 78 to Lakeridge Drive is undergoing a $3 million facelift to restore the roadway and extend the life of the driving surfaces. Some portions of the roadway will require pavement removal and replacement, while other segments will need surface grinding prior to the final pavement overlay.
Paving the way
Residents and businesses directly affected by the street restoration will receive notice of scheduled work. While most road repair work will take place during evening hours, daytime traffic delays are anticipated. During construction, businesses will remain open and street restoration work will be coordinated to minimize obstruction to shopping center access. We appreciate the continued patience of motorists, businesses and schools during these important roadway improvements. For more information, roadwork maps, updated schedules and anticipated traffic impacts, visit www.sanmarcos.net/roadwork.

wife's 10 best friends. None of them knew anything about it. Friendship among Men:
A man didn't come home one night. The next morning he told his wife that he had slept over at a friend's house. The woman called her husband's 10 best friends. Eight confirmed that he had slept over, and two said he was still there. DOG FOR SALE:
A guy is driving around the back woods of Montana and he sees a sign in front of a broken down shantystyle house: "Talking Dog For Sale." He rings the bell and the owner appears and tells him the dog is in the backyard. The guy goes into the backyard and sees a nice looking Labrador retriever sitting there. "You talk?" he asks.
"Yep," the Lab replies.
After the guy recovers from the shock of hearing a dog talk, he says, "So, what's your story?"
The Lab looks up and says, "Well, I discovered that I could talk when I was pretty young. I wanted to help the government, so I told the CIA. In no time at all they had me jetting from
country to country, sitting in rooms with spies and world leaders, because no one figured a dog would be eavesdropping.
I was one of their most valuable spies for eight years running, but the jetting around really tired me out, and I knew I wasn't getting any younger so I decided to settle down. I signed up for a job at the airport to do some undercover security, wandering near suspicious characters and listening in. I uncovered some incredible dealings and was awarded a batch of medals. I got married, had a mess of puppies, and now I'm just retired."
The guy is amazed. He goes back in and asks the owner what he wants for the dog.

Enhancing the Community Through Art
The 3rd Annual Alley Art Festival will take place in downtown Vista on Saturday, September 3 from 10 am to 10 pm. The Festival is an unconventional art experience and is fun, funky and one of a kind. Live music, an artist market, art activities, and more will keep attendees involved all day long. Two new public art pieces created by Rick and Jaydon Sterling Randall will be installed downtown during the Art Fest: Alley Art Woman (Main Street & Michigan Avenue) and Love Locks (Near S. Indiana Avenue & Main Street) and a mural, by artist Daniel Toledo titled “Margarita Fischer”
In addition, a new sculpture was recently installed in the middle of the city’s first roundabout located at Eucalyptus Avenue and S. Santa Fe Avenue. The nine foot spiraling wood design was created by Vista native Michael Angelo Venturella, who named it Prima Vista, meaning “first sight”. Michael said he has watched the beautification of the city with eagerness for years, and was waiting for the opportunity to take part. Two more roundabouts are planned in the Paseo Santa Fe district.

Apple, Microsoft, Google, phones, tablets and PCs
As of this week, in terms of “market cap” (the total value of all their stock), Apple, Alphabet (Google) and Microsoft in that order, are the world’s most valuable companies. Comparing their revenues for the first two quarters of 2016 with the same quarters in 2015 shows an interesting trend. In 2016 Apple’s revenues are down 16%, Microsoft’s down 7% and Alphabet (Google) up 26%. Several factors hurt Microsoft. While they sell the OS (operating system) for over 90% of new PCs, new PC sales dropped 9% over the past year. The drop in new PC sales is a long term problem caused by competition from smart phones and tablets and the fact that modern PCs last much longer than they

ESCONDIDO -- Petra (Lobato) Stubbs was born on June 5, 1926 and came to Escondido in 1945. Petra spent most of her youth on a cattle ranch in Arizona. In 1951, she married Paul “J” Stubbs, and after a five month courtship, they were married for 65 years when she passed away on August 23, 2016 in Escondido, Ca. She is survived by her husband, Paul; two children, six grandchildren, nine great-grandchildren, three sisters, and several nieces and nephews.

did ten years ago. The decline in new PC sales was amplified during the past year by Microsoft’s giveaway of free Windows 10 upgrades for older PCs. Microsoft’s plan to use Window10 to improve their share of the mobile device market (smart phones and tablets) failed badly as their share in mobile device sales tumbled from 3% to a bit over 1% in just two years. Apples PC sales have also declined but not as badly as those of Windows based PCs. Apple represents only 7% of PC unit sales, but Apple loyalist (Fanbois) have helped Apple to keep prices and profits high. Apple’s biggest source of revenue in recent years has been the sale of mobile devices (iPhones and iPads). Price competition in mobile devices forced Apple to cut prices and profits to try to hold market share. Apple’s iPhone sales peaked (as a percentage of smart phone sales) in 2004 at 25%. By 2016 smart phones using Google’s “Android” operating system have come to dominate with 87% of new phone sales worldwide. Apple holds on with 12% and Microsoft only 1%. In the USA, birthplace and stronghold of the Apple “Fanbois” cult, the iPhone still holds a third of the smart phone market but the traditional hard core Apple “Fanbois” coalition of graphics and performance artists, hippies, K-12 teachers and gay males is being depleted by age and replaced by the more tech savvy millennials.

Both Apple and Microsoft are seeing their traditional sources of revenue slipping away. Neither to date has demonstrated a clear strategy for resuming profitable growth. Neither is in immediate danger and both can probably continue to “cash cow” their traditional businesses for many years. Both have tens of billions of dollars in the bank. Their challenge is to figure out how to use that cash to grow profitable businesses.
Alphabet (Google) is still on a roll with “Android” increasing its dominance in mobiles and its search engine and browser leading the Internet. Alphabets “Chromebooks” based on the Chrome OS have become the only growth segment in the otherwise shrinking PC industry. Over the past year

“Chromebooks” have basically kicked Apple out of the education market with schools switching en masse from Apple to the far cheaper “Chromebooks.” “Chromebooks” are the most exciting part of the PC business these days. They have the potential to make serious inroads into both Microsoft’s and Apple’s PC sales. For up to 50% of users, a Chromebook may be a better choice than a Macbook or Windows notebook PC. They can be cheaper, faster, more durable, malware proof and easy to learn. Next week we’ll cover them in more detail and talk about what “San Diego’s Best Computer Store” plans for “Chromebooks.”
