“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times” is one of the most wellknown lines in all of literature, penned by England’s greatest Victorian novelist, Charles Dickens. What is not wellknown is that Charles Dickens, the brilliant author who gave the world “A Tale of Two Cities” and “Great Expectations,” and the timeless classic, “A Christmas Carol” was, well . . . a professional magician. And a damned good one, according to contemporary sources at the time.
Billed as “The Unparalleled Necromancer,” Charles Dickens, under the exotic stage name of Rhia Rhama Rhoos, traveled to a coastal resort on the Isle of Wight and magically made simple playing cards suddenly explode into flames for captivated audiences. On another occasion, the mysterious Charles Dickens (again traveling incognito as Rhia Rhama Rhoos) stunned crowds by borrowing a woman’s watch, placing it into a small wooden box – then magically transported it into the middle of a loaf of bread! Not long after publishing his famous “The Pickwick Papers” in 1837, Charles Dickens’ mysterious alter-ego would again manifest as a most highlyskilled magician. Some said the best they had ever seen. The genius of Charles Dickens was like a Gatling gun, not only firing literary pearls like “Great Expectations” and “Oliver Twist” but also scoring a bull’s eye in the wizarding world. Simply put, he was the most under-rated professional magician of his time. A most shocking revelation for many Charles Dickens fans, today.
Traveling under his pseudonym, Rhia Rhama Rhoos, the great literary genius once left his audience spellbound when he magically cooked a steaming hot plum pudding in a borrowed gentleman’s top hat! Famous contemporary, Jayne Carlyle (wife of famous Scottish philosopher and historian, Thomas Carlyle) gushed over seeing a performance by magician, Charles Dickens: “Only think of it, that excellent Dickens playing the conjuror for one whole hour – the best conjuror I ever saw – and I have paid money to see several!” (In a December 1843 letter to Jayne Carlyle’s cousin.)
Magic seems to have a universal appeal and it’s no secret that countless kids had a magic set at one time or another in their growing-up-years. It was a simple passing phase many of us went through, moments reminiscent of boys fantasizing over being a super hero, or girls singing into a hairbrush at slumber parties and doing their most glamourous impressions of Lady Gaga. However, these lofty aspirations are a

rite-of-passage, brief moments of transient childhood, not something that would full-blossom in our more earnest, adult years. Heaven forbid if you were to walk into your boss’ office, unannounced, only to see him in Superman tights, arms on hips, staring dramatically out of his high-office window, eyes focused somewhere beyond the horizon.
Yet, as with Charles Dickens, the magic bug sometimes bites a child and the mark stays on through the ensuing years, refusing to evaporate, and thus magic shapes the adult-to-come.
It happened to Johnny Carson.
It’s no secret that television’s most famous talk show host, Johnny Carson, performed as “The Great Carsoni” when he was a small Nebraska boy, knee-high to a grasshopper. (Johnny was born in Iowa, but his parents
Obituaries Memorials Area Services Page 12
moved to Norfolk, Nebraska when he was only 8.)
Carson’s first paying gig as a professional magician was at the local Kiwanis Club at Norfolk, Nebraska where he was paid the handsome fee of $3 a show. That translates to about $52 in today’s 2017 currency and is not bad wages for a 14-year-old, postDepression-era teenager.
Unlike most boys, Carson was not just temporarily smitten by the conjuring arts during his boyhood years. Far from it. His love-affair with magic would stay-on during his entire adulthood, even unto the grave. During his late-night reign on The Tonight Show, Johnny Carson often tickled the audience with on-camera feats of sleight-of-hand. Once, after making a coin vanish for a little boy on the set of The Tonight Show, the
stunned child asked in disbelief: “How . . . can I make money disappear too?”
Johnny’s unscripted reply to the little boy: “Get married!”
But even when Johnny sat as host of NBC’s Tonight Show, he also sat as an illustrious member of the Board of Directors at the world-famous Magic Castle, a private members-only elegant restaurant and posh nightclub – complete with secret panels and magical doorways where guests disappear through, and amidst ghostly happenings which take place nightly in underground areas like the Haunted Wine Cellar beneath the mysterious Victorian-style Magic Castle edifice.
Like the mysterious Sphinx in ancient Egyptian mythology, the Magic Castle still sits today, nestled up in the famed Hollywood Hills. It was there, at the private, upscale

Magic Castle, where Johnny Carson dined with many of the world’s greatest showbiz legends, such as the great Orson Welles, and others. Like Johnny Carson, the immortal stage and film actor, Orson Welles, was a most reputable high-arts magician, as well. Welles performed special magic-illusion shows for the U. S. military troops during World War II. His stage assistants were none other than movie stars Joseph Cotton and the stunning Rita Hayworth. It remains a rarity that a movie star, political VIP or any such worldly figure is an actual bona fide magician. As such, many notables fail to recognize and pay proper respects to the rich traditions and bylaws which magicians hold most dear. For example, a most embarrassing incident occurred at the Magic Castle with equally-embarrassing repercussions which quickly spread throughout the Hollywood community. Here is what happened.
The Magic Castle has a strict dress code: coat and tie for men, evening apparel for women. This dress code is stringently enforced, regardless of the status of any visitor, be they celebrity, royalty, or President of the United States. When then-President Ronald Reagan visited the Magic Castle, he – as well as his seven Secret Service men – were all appropriately dressed. The President and Mrs. Reagan attended the Magic Castle’s spectacular Houdini Séance. All went well and a most incredible – albeit spooky – evening

was enjoyed by all.
However, this same respect for Castle rules did not occur with Johnny Carson’s younger brother, Dick Carson, who was producer-director of The Tonight Show at the time. Here are the sordid details.
Magic Castle proprietor, Milt Larsen, personally told me of one high-profile occasion where the criterion for attire was challenged. Johnny’s younger brother, Dick Carson, once showed up at the celebrated Castle foyer, by himself, but without a tie. Anticipating such scenarios, the Castle keeps a handy supply of ties for guests who may have forgotten to put one on. The front-desk host offered Dick Carson a complimentary tie for the evening – but he flatly refused to wear it. Dick was reminded of protocol: No tie, no entrance. In turn, Dick reminded the hostess who he was, implying that he was above such rules. The situation escalated as both sides remained steadfast.
Unable to reach a resolution, the hostess called upstairs to speak with Castle owner, Milt Larsen. Informed of the stalemate in the downstairs lobby, Milt placed a call to Johnny Carson and asked him to make a ‘judgment call,’ regarding his brother, Dick. An honorable member of the Castle, himself, Johnny Carson’s magician’s blood boiled over and he shouted: “Put my goddamned brother on the phone!” Milt proceeded to tell me that, “Johnny apparently read his brother the sailors would whistle to make the wind come. My brother said they would have been better off eating beans. (William, age 7)
7) - Mermaids live in the ocean. I like mermaids They are beautiful and I like their shiny tails, but how on earth do mermaids get pregnant? Like, really? (Helen, age 6) 8) - I'm not going to write about the ocean. My baby brother is always crying, my Dad keeps yelling at my Mom, and my big sister has just got pregnant, so I can't think what to write. (Amy, age 6)
9) - Some fish are dangerous. Jellyfish can sting. Electric eels can give you a shock. They have to live in caves under the sea where I think they have to plug themselves in to chargers. (Christopher, age 7) 10) - When you go swimming in the ocean, it is very cold, and it makes my willy small. (Kevin, age 6)
11) - On vacation my Mom went water skiing. She fell off when she was going very fast. She says she won't do it again because water fired right up her big fat butt. (Julie, age 7)
12) - The ocean is made up of water and fish. Why the fish don't drown I don't know. (Bobby, age 6)
13) - My dad was a sailor on the ocean. He knows all about the ocean. What he doesn't know is why he quit being a sailor and married my mom. (James, age 7)
the Riot Act, and that was that.” Dick Carson put on the tie.
No one outside of a straitjacket would have dared disparage the honor and traditions of magic in front of the King of Late Night Talk Show, Johnny Carson. But even magician, Johnny Carson, was struck powerless in producing the one guest he forever dreamed of having on his Tonight Show set: the legendary movie star, Cary Grant. Throughout the years as host of The Tonight Show, Carson often said his number-one fantasy guest would be – without question – Cary Grant. (Johnny Carson was often in the company of Cary Grant but was unable to get him to appear as a Tonight Show guest.) Sadly, this Carson dream-guest never materialized, despite Johnny’s constant urgings and pleas to the Hollywood icon, Cary Grant. Ironically, Hollywood’s greatest and most famous movie star at the time, Cary Grant was also a professionallevel stage magician and -- as did Johnny – Grant also served on the Board of Directors at the Magic Castle. What Johnny Carson and the moversand-shakers of world entertainment were unable to do -- the Magic Castle could, and did. That is, Cary Grant not only appeared regularly at the Magic Castle, but he occasionally performed his magic act there, under the showbiz moniker, “The Great Carini.” Unsuccessfully woo’d for years as a Tonight Show guest, Cary Grant easily acquiesced as a performing magician at the elegant Palace of Mystery showroom inside the Magic Castle, but, never outside those hallowed halls.

At this point, a Marine from the security detail assigned to the ship stood up in the crowd and inquired, "How much for a season pass?" God bless the Marine Corps

No amount of money from outside sources could entice Grant to perform his unique magical talents for general public consumption. Johnny Carson was left with his last best hope -- to sit in the Magic Castle audience and watch his favorite movie-star idol, Cary Grant, perform what they both passionately shared since boyhood: an undying love for the magical craft. Fellow Nebraskan and former television personality, Dick Cavett, first met an unknown Johnny Carson through magic. Both were practicing wizards when their paths first crossed in 1952 when Carson performed his magic act at a Church function in Lincoln, Nebraska. Though 11 years younger than Johnny Carson at the time, the 16year-old Cavett could more than hold his own in the magic arena. In 1952, the same year they both met, the much younger Cavett would attend the International Brotherhood of Magicians convention in St. Louis where he won the top trophy for “Best New Performer In Magic.”
Throughout the respective lifetimes of Johnny Carson and Dick Cavett, both men remained dyed-in-the-wool practitioners of legerdemain (sleight of hand). Their passion for magic never subsided but only increased with the years. True magicians, to the core. Famous comedian, Steve Martin, remains to this very day a top-drawer professional magician. Martin became a magician in early boyhood, then blossomed into the professional ranks, eventually working as a magic demonstrator at Disneyland’s Main Street

Even though Steve Martin has become wildly famous as a comedy movie actor, he has never strayed far from his hocus-pocus roots. In 1992 he returned to perform his classic magic comedy act, “The Great Flydini” on Johnny Carson’s Tonight Show.
For the future, Steve Martin’s new Disney movie, “Magic Camp” is slated for a April 6, 2018 release date. The movie is based on the real-life camp for “rookie magicians,” which is sponsored annually by Tannen’s Magic, Inc. in New York City. Inspired by actual fact, the movie version of Tannen’s real Magic Camp is reminiscent of Harry Potter’s early training at Hogwart’s School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
As a young boy, Steve Martin actually did attend Magic Camp, sponsored by Tannen’s Magic Co. in New York City and held at Bryn Mawr College, Philadelphia. In fact, Steve Martin and David Copperfield are illustrious Magic Camp alumni.
Tannen’s next Magic Camp takes place from July 14-21, 2018 and are accepting applications now for neophyte wizards. As many as 130 students arrive annually from all over the world so, if interested, you better act now by visiting their website: www.tannensmagiccamp.com/

Escondido American Legion Post 149 Auxiliary’s Girls State Delegates - On Sunday, May 21, the American Legion Auxiliary District 22, Unit 731, hosted the San Diego County Girls State Tea to honor delegates chosen to attend Girls State that was held June 26 - July 2 at Claremont McKenna College in Claremont, California. Boys also attend Boys’ State each year. This year over 500 girls from California were selected to attend the Girls State Program where they learned specifics on the workings of government, write a piece of legislation, run and campaign for a state office while forming lasting friendships and learning what it means to be a responsible citizen. On September 15, parents have been invited to attend a joint Boys & Girls Recognition Dinner to be held at the American Legion Post 149, 230 E. Park Avenue, Escondido. Auxiliary representatives and delegates chosen to represent the Escondido American Legion Post 149 Auxiliary from left are Carol Halvorson, Chairwoman for Girls State, Averi Fetrow (Escondido Charter High); Guadalupe Madera (Valley Center High); Taylor Cooney (San Pasqual High); Daria Bonds (Escondido High); Lizbeth Flores (Orange Glen High); and Cathy Wathen-Watt, Auxiliary President.

became highly-skillful conjurers, an art form which followed them well into their adult life. Television and motion picture actor, Neil Patrick Harris, former star of “Doogie Howser, M.D.” and “How I Met Your Wife,” is a top-drawer magician today and has been appointed President of the Board of Directors at Hollywood’s Magic Castle. Popular actor, Harry Anderson of television’s “Night Court” series, started out as a professional magician and still practices it today. Anderson first became interested in magic as a little boy in Chicago. His father would take him to The Pump Room, the famous restaurant downstairs at the Ambassador East Hotel. There, as a small boy, Harry Anderson would watch the “wise guys” (organized crime figures) playing poker and observe notorious card-sharks demonstrating sleight-of-hand techniques and a variety of devious magic tricks with a normal pack of cards; a talent they used to hustle unsuspecting victims at the card tables.
Today, the 64-year-old native of Rhode Island, famed actor Harry Anderson has toured extensively performing comedy magic shows.
The identifies of some famous actors, singers, dancers, etc., who are also talented magicians, may come as an unexpected shock to you. The names are a glittering array of Hollywood’s finest ensemble: Woody Allen, Jerry Lewis, Dick Van Dyke, Andy Griffith, Bob Barker, Arsenio Hall, Jackie Gleason, Fred Astaire Milton Berle, Jimmy Stewart, Barbara Stanwyck, John Denver, Tony Curtis, and many more, too lengthy to list here.

tiple-choice quiz and see how you do. Don’t worry about your score, just have fun with it. As previously stated, these “secret magicians” have, for the most part, remained under the radar of public awareness. Until now.
Let’s begin our fun secret-magician’s quiz. Which famous person below became a highly-accomplished adult magician? Take your best guess. A. U. S. President Ronald Reagan B. Astronaut John Glenn C. Gulf War Gen. Norman Schwarzkopf, Jr. D. The Reverend, Dr. Martin Luther King
Well, this is a tricky one (pun intended), but if you selected “C” above, General Norman Schwarzkopf, Jr. well you get to go to the head of the class. The United States Army general, Norman Schwarzkopf, Jr. (1934-2012) who served brilliantly as commander of our coalition forces in the Persian Gulf War was not just a casual magician – but a highly accomplished one. Schwarzkopf was a conjurer of the first-order, skillful enough to officially become an active member of the International Brotherhood of Magicians (IBM), the world’s largest magic fraternity today.
New York’s legendary magician, Al Cohen, signed (as co-sponsor) the application of Herbert Norman Schwarzkopf (then a U. S. Army colonel at the time) for membership into the International Brotherhood of Magicians. (All applying members must have a magician-sponsor of good standing in the I.B.M.)
It must be emphasized here that the
States Constitution. Chapter members joined Woodward for the presentation. Constitution Week, September 17-23, was enacted as Public Law 915 as a result of a resolution from the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution to the U.S. Congress in 1955; a resolution was adopted by Congress in 1956, and Public Law 915 was signed by President Dwight D. Eisenhower. The aim of Constitution Week is to encourage every American to protect and defend the Constitution, the basis for America’s great heritage and the foundation for our way of life. Join citizens across the country as we ring bells at 1pm on September 17 to celebrate this 230th year of this amazing document, North County Republican Coalition to Meet on 9/18 - On Monday, September 18th, please join the North County Republican Coalition (NCRC) to hear two local Republican activists speak about current programs and 2018 election issues in North County. John Buell, 76th Assembly District Republican Caucus Chair, and Roarke Shanley, CA GOP Field Representative for Coastal North County. John Buell’s presentation will focus on the 2018 elections in the 76th AD, identifying the critical seats where campaign efforts should be focused. John was elected to the San Diego Republican Central Committee in 2016 for a 4-year term. Roarke Shanley will give an update on the operations of our new North County CA GOP headquarters, located at 630 Alta Vista Dr. Suite 202, in Vista. The office is now open Monday through Saturday, 1pm-8pm. Volunteers, under Roarke’s management, are currently involved in phone banking operations. Roarke will also give an update on the CA GOP response and efforts regarding the newly passed Gas Tax. The NCRC promotes local Republican candidates and conservative

celebrated Schwarzkopf was far, far more than just being a dues-paying member. Schwarzkopf was a practitioner and he diligently studied theory and principles of magic through the official I.B.M magic magazine called The Linking Ring, which he received each and every month. The 160-page monthly journal of magic was his catnip.
Magicians have often been called the “scientists of show business,” and for good reason. After all, magic deals with principles of psychology and the science of misdirection and the art of deception and no one knew this better than Schwarzkopf. As in everything he put his keen, analytical mind to, General Norman Schwarzkopf, Jr. excelled in the magical arts throughout his adult life. So much so, that the brilliant U. S. Army general even employed his magician’s “principles of deception” into his warfare strategy. To historic success.
“Stormin’ Norman,” as he was nicknamed during the Persian Gulf War (also “The Bear”), studied “The Art of War,” written by the ancient Chinese general, military strategist, and philosopher named Sun Tzu (544 BC – 496 BC). The Art of War is widely considered a stroke of genius in military strategy, tactics and deception. During the Gulf War in the 1990s, both Generals Norman Schwarzkopf, Jr. and Colin Powell employed principles from Sun Tzu which, “related to deception, speed, and striking one’s enemy’s weak points.” Though not a magic book but, rather, a

Fatal Motorcycle Accident Escondido
On Saturday, September 9, at about 10:50 AM officers from the Escondido Police Department were dispatched to Bear Valley Parkway at the south entrance to Kit Carson Park regarding a vehicle versus motorcycle accident. EPD officers and Escondido Fire paramedics arrived on scene minutes later. Based on witness statements and physical evidence at the scene, the following occurred. The motorcyclist, a 54 year old male resident of Escondido, was traveling south on Bear Valley Parkway. Meanwhile, a 32 year old male resident of Escondido was attempting a left turn from north bound Bear Valley Parkway into the south entrance of Kit Carson Park when the collision occurred. The motorcyclist was transported to Palomar Medical Center with life-threatening injuries. The driver of the other vehicle was not injured. Alcohol or drugs are not a factor in this collision.

Man About Town
It happens that one of my relatives was a pioneer in Alaska . . . specifically, near the town at the foot of Denali, Talkeetna.
Talkeetna is the jump off point for those who wish to climb Mt. Denali. It also serves as an airstrip where people, including us, charter aircraft to fly around the summit of Denali and try to spot the Grizzlies (both of which we did).
One of my great (Norwegian) uncles helped settle Talkeetna. What amazed me is that his homestead was about 10 miles outside of town . . . and he walked to and from town. That in itself is a challenge, but he would often walk into town, pick up shingles for the roof of his house from the train station, and then walk back, carrying the shingles on his shoulder. He'd make repeated trips till all the shingles were back at his homestead. His home was on a lovely lake, in

What the tourist brochures don't tell you, however, is that to enjoy these beautiful lakes and rivers of Alaska you also have to contend with hordes of huge mosquitos, midges (also known as 'no-see-ums',) grizzly bears, wolves, and all kinds of flora and fauna that looks pretty but is difficult to traverse. I doubt that most of us would be able to contend with the rough demands Alaska makes of its residents . . . particularly in the past, before ready access to cars, planes and other transportation was available. You kinda had to 'make-do,' and, often, that was really hard.
In Talkeetna, my former wife, Mary, and I, would stop at a combination bar/hotel. They had showers for, I think, fifty cents for 10 minutes or so. We went to the bar, had a glass of wine, while Mary went up to grab a shower. When she returned we relaxed a bit, enjoyed our wine, and eavesdropped. There were several women at the bar and the language they used would have made a sailor blush. Alaska is a rough country and has some rough characters living there. Seems like everyone grows a beard when they move to Alaska (including the women). We had rented a motor home in Anchorage and, because there was heavy flooding to the south, headed north, through Denali and then to Fairbanks. We stopped at Wasilla because we had cousins living there. Yes, that Wasilla, home of the former Governor, Sarah Palin. (Where have I heard that name before?)

East Valley Parkway leading into Valley Center will be a bit easier to negotiate . . . after the newest project is completed.
The City of Escondido will begin widening a segment less than a mile long on East Valley Parkway leading into Valley Center later this month.
Traffic often would come to a halt as residents of Valley Center approached Escondido as the bottom of the grade coming from Valley Center merges into a bottleneck. This occurs where the County had widened the road almost 10 years ago and where Valley Parkway becomes four lanes. The construction will likely east the bottleneck, but probably not until next year.
The $9.7 million East Valley Pkwy/Valley Center Road Widening Project will widen the

And then 1/2 mile away we'd see another log cabin, rough and tumble, tarpaper shack outbuildings, rusted out cars up on concrete blocks . . . there are no zoning laws in Alaska. You try to create zoning laws . . . and if you try to enforce them, you'd probably be shot on sight. Alaska is a country for independent thinkers and doers. A strange state. We got into Fairbanks and saw some of the attractions. One morning I called my younger son, Ken, who was managing Dixon Lake for me at the time. As he answered the phone I could tell he was crying. "How you doin'?" I asked. "Terrible," he said. Turns out one of his best friends, a frequent house guest of ours, had taken a job in, of all places, Fairbanks, Alaska. This kid was movie star handsome . . . leading man handsome. One of the nicest kids you'd ever want to know. His name was Lorin McCorkindale. He went to work for one of the huge gold mines up there and on his first day on the job he was driving a truck and the side of the road gave way, rolling the truck, and killing him. First day on the job and he was killed. Kenny had just learned about it a few minutes before we called to say hello. He was absoutely devastated.
Later, I tried to help his mom get legal representation to try and get some financial compensation for the loss of her son due to the negligence of the gold mining company.

• Undergrounding of existing overhead utilities.
• Construction of a sound wall, landscaped medians and sidewalks.
• Bridge widening over the Escondido Creek • Traffic signal modifications and addition of 22 new LED street lights. • Green street design with over 100 new trees.
From mid-SeptemberNovember 2017 the project will include construction and relocation of storm drains and installation of new utility conduit as well as the bridge widening will across Escondido Creek. Not a chance.

Still, I was amazed and heartened by the orderly fashion in which Florida handled the evacuations of its residents. Great work by local, state and federal officials. Very impressive. To be sure, we had some loss of life and injury and lots of property damage but it could have been so much worse. Special kudos go to law enforcement and public safety folks. They sure earned their pensions this past week. On duty 24/7, responding to calls for help, often at the risk of their own health and safey, they saved countless lives.
And to the citizens of Florida and neighboring states ... many of whom went to the aid of total strangers ignoring race, religion, gender, age we became one people during this time of crisis. That, to me, is the way America should be. On a regular basis. Makes one mighty proud to be part of this nation.

Famous Magicians Cont. from Page 3
military one, The Art of War had many parallels to the principles of deception and strategy employed in the magical arts – and General Norman Schwarzkopf’s brilliant mind saw the connection. When Schwarzkopf joined the magical fraternity (the IBM) as a U. S. Army colonel, he applied the magician’s exploitation of human perception, deception, false-reasoning, and the golden rule of “thinking 5-steps ahead of the audience” (or military foe). Magicians, and their magic, are often shockingly unpredictable – all indispensable ingredients which can be used against military opponents, in theaters of strategic warfare tactics, as in a complicated chess game. Also added into the mix was the bold assumption that magicians seem to do the impossible. This fed Schwarzkopf’s creative, military mind to break down barriers of successfully doing what was previously thought “impossible” in warfare tactics. This made General Schwarzkopf not only deceptively clever, but deadly-unpredictable and often 5-steps ahead of his enemies’ thinking in his Command of Operation Desert Storm. In his autobiographical 1992 bestselling book, “It Doesn’t Take a Hero,” Schwarzkopf reveals in his own words, insights such as being a fine linguist, proud husband and father, and prideful owner of “Bear,” his black Labrador. He also confesses his skillful life as a magician, and official member of magic’s IBM society. But, Schwarzkopf only offers a teasing, cursory glance – as with all magicians, he
doesn’t tell all his secrets (military or otherwise).
Muhammad Ali has earned high praise. Though Ali loved performing close-up magic, he also relished the bigger illusions such as levitating his bodyguards. Of the champ’s unique levitation performance, David Copperfield said, “He does a classic levitation – classic – but he added his bodyguards!”
Unknown to most of the civilized world, when General Herbert Norman Schwarzkopf, Jr. passed away on December 27, 2012 at the age of 78, members of his magical brotherhood saluted him as a proud member of their ranks. The vast membership of the International Brotherhood of Magicians in their worldwide clubs (called “Rings”) conducted the solemn ceremony of “Breaking a Wand” in his memory. Wand breaking symbolizes the end of a magician’s journey. It also symbolizes the uniqueness of a human being’s life which can never be duplicated.
Of Muhammad Ali’s various magical advisors, none was more prominent than world-class magician, Terry Lasorda, a polio survivor who valiantly used magic as a physical therapy to his polio, painfully struggling through a regimen of muscular exercises required by a magician. Lasorda traveled throughout the world as the champ’s personal teacher in the arcane craft of deception in the late 1970s.
General Schwarzkopf remained a proud, loyal IBM member to his dying day. He was a true wizard, to his fingertips.
The boisterous Muhammad Ali, who once said he modelled his Cassius Clay ‘peacock showmanship’ after the flamboyant “I’m-so-pretty” wrestler, Gorgeous George (George Wagner) of the 1940s-50s, loved being a magician until the advanced stages of Parkinson’s Disease took away this final love affair.
Which famous person below became an accomplished magician in his adult years? A. Barack Obama B. Rev. Billy Graham C. Muhammad Ali D. President Donald Trump
The implication being that you can’t grow up and still be a magician. One is expected to outgrow your magic years. With many famous people, such as Charles Dickens, Johnny Carson, Muhammad Ali, Prince Charles, and General Norman Schwarzkopf, Jr., they grew into adulthood, yet they stayed magical their entire lives.

There is a humorous anecdote among magicians which goes as follows: “When I was a child, my mother asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. And I said, a magician. My mom told me, ‘You can’t do both.’”

For well over 40 years, boxing super-legend, Muhammad Ali, had courted a deep, abiding passion for magic – as both a spectator and performer. And the king of boxing has had some pretty heavyweight names in magic to both teach and advise him on his performance skills.

Historically Speaking by Tom Morrow
Cave Couts: North County’s Anglo Pioneer
Cave Johnson Couts was one of the first white men to settle in North San Diego County. His Rancho Guajome lies in Vista along N. Santa Fe Ave., near the Oceanside city limits and today is a County Historical Museum & Park.
Couts was born in November 1821, near Springfield, Tennessee. His uncle, Cave Johnson, was U.S. Postmaster General under President James Polk. Uncle Cave had his name-sake appointed to the Military Academy at West Point, where he graduated in 1843, near the bottom of his class. He served on the Western frontier assignments: as a dragoon officer until after the Mexican War at Los Angeles, Mission San Luis Rey, and Old Town San Diego from 1848 to 1851. In 1849, Couts conducted the Whipple expedition to the Colorado River. He was a qualified surveyor - he documented and mapped California and Arizona’s southern boundaries with Mexico as outlined in the Guadalupe Hidalgo Treaty. It ceded large portions of Mexico to the U.S. as part of the settlement ending the Mexican War with the U.S. (the surveyor’s transit Couts used on that expedition is or was in the County’s Rancho Guajome Museum in Vista.) On April 5, 1851, Lieutenant Couts married Ysidora Bandini, daughter of Juan Bandini, who was a prominent Italian businessman in Old Town San Diego. Bandini had immigrated to America from Italy via Peru. In October 1851 Couts resigned his commission from the U.S. Army and soon after was appointed colonel and aide-decamp on the staff of California Governor John Bigler (1852-56).
In 1853, he and Ysidora moved to North County on a tract of land known as the Guajome (pronounced: wah-home-ah) Grant, a wedding gift to Ysidora from her brother-in-law, wealthy Los Angeles businessman Abel Stearns. Now located in a large area of the present-day cities of Oceanside, Vista and as far east as San Marcos, the Guajome Land Grant took in a large portion of what previous were lands of the San Luis Rey Mission.
Couts built a large, rambling, 20room, Spanish Colonial-style hacienda with two courtyards, an arcaded veranda, and other structures, including a chapel in a former small house. It was built with the profits from the cattle boom of the 1850s, when many California ranchos supplied the Gold Rush miners and associated new American immigrants with meat and leather. Couts was appointed sub-agent for the native Luiseño people (San Luis Rey Mission Indians) in 1853. He used their enslaved labor to improve his properties in the area, including this one and nearby Rancho Buena Vista and Rancho Vallecitos de San Marcos. The Rancho Gujajome hacienda and associated structures was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1970. It also is a California Historical Landmark and on the National Register of Historic Places. Today it is a County park and museum. In 1854, Couts became County Judge, and in 1859, was appointed a member of the County’s first Grand Jury, He was a leading political figure in San Diego County.
Over the years of Cave Couts’ later life, Rancho Guajome was widely celebrated for its hospitality. Not only was it a stagecoach stop for travelers, some used it as a destination. Ysidora entertained noted author Helen Hunt Jackson while she was collecting materials for her best-selling book, “Ramona.” Part of the story is supposed to have taken place in real life at the Guajome Rancho – especially some of the ill treatment of the Native Americans living and working around the rancho. As Couts’ wealth grew, consisting largely of cattle, the passage of the fencing law eliminated “open range” grazing. This was a severe financial blow to Couts, and one from which he never fully recovered.
Couts was a controversial and colorful figure. People who knew him either respected and liked him, or outright hated him for his dealings and sometimes cruel methods and treatment, primarily to Native Americans. On one occasion, he reportedly got in a gunfight in Old Town with a former employee, who claimed he was owed unpaid wages. As the story goes, Couts shot the man in the back, but later a trial jury found him “not guilty” by reason of “self defense.” The verdict, no doubt, was the result of being influential in early California. Couts died at the young age of 53 years and is buried in the Old Town cemetery in San Diego. A number of the Couts family relatives still live in the County.

Emergency Plan for Escondido
There have been several natural disasters affecting regions of our Country. Hurricanes Harvey and Irma have left devastation in areas from Texas and Florida. Wildfires in Montana and even Los Angeles have destroyed forests and threatened homes. Several thousand miles away, off the southern coast of Mexico, an earthquake damaged
utility infrastructure leaving nearly one million people without power and toppling homes and hotels. The magnitude of the quake has led to a Tsunami warning that may affect Hawaii. As we watch or read news about these events, it is important to remember that we are not immune from tragedy in our own City or County. We are at risk of earthquakes, wild fires and flooding.

Pastor Hal Seed Now Song Community Church, Oceanside Something New for Adults and Children
Like most good churches, New Song Community Church is constantly looking for ways to serve the people of our community. Starting September 9, we’ll be opening two attractions to help children parents and grandparents. I hope you’ll consider visiting soon.
For children: In conjunction with the owners of The Paintball Park, we’ll be opening a play gym for kids that is like a McDonalds on steroids. The play gym (called The Play Kingdom) features tubes, slides, rope swings, giant balls, a climbing wall, and more. For adults:
Adjacent to the Play Kingdom, we’re opening a coffee bar that is like a Starbucks, only featuring fair trade coffee from Ethiopia. There’s a triple synergy to this: kids can play while parents and grandparents can relax with coffee and a treat. While drinking the coffee, you’ll be helping Ethiopian farmers earn a sustainable living. Along with the gym and coffee, they’ll be couches, movies, and wifi, and other toys, all in a safe, fun atmosphere.
The whole thing is available for birthday parties and family reunions. For more information, check out www.playkingdom.com or call 866.985.4932. Better still, visit New Song any Sunday and your kids can have fun before and after the service, and learn and grow during our Promiseland Sunday School services. And you’ll grow too, by joining us for worship and a relevant message from the Bible.
Our church services are Saturday night, 5 p.m. and Sunday morning 8:30, 10, and 11:30 a.m. at 3985 Mission Avenue. We also have a Carlsbad location with services at 9:30 and 11:15. God bless you! www.newsongchurch.com

Father Norton woke up Sunday morning and realizing it was an exceptionally beautiful and sunny early spring day, decided he just had to play golf.
So... he told the Associate Pastor that he was feeling sick and persuaded him to say Mass for him that day. As soon as the Associate Pastor left the room, Father Norton headed out of town to a golf course about forty miles away.
This way he knew he wouldn't accidentally meet anyone he knew from his parish
Setting up on the first tee, he was alone. After all, it was Sunday morning and everyone else was in church!
At about this time, Saint Peter leaned over to the Lord while looking down from the heavens and exclaimed "You're not going to let him get away with this, are you?" The Lord sighed, and said, "No, I guess not."

There are several open gym times, providing the opportunity for individuals of all ages to attend while making new friends and staying in shape playing the great game of basketball.
Just then Father Norton hit the ball and it shot straight towards the pin, dropping just short of it, rolled up and fell into the hole. St. Peter was astonished. He looked at the Lord and asked, "Why did you let him do that?"

Everything quickly turned to chaos. The bride slapped the groom. The groom's mother fainted.
The groomsmen started giving each other looks and wondering how best to help save the situation. The pastor asked the woman, "Can you tell us why you came forward? What do you have to say?"
The woman replied, "We can't hear in the back." •••••

A woman and her 12-year-old son were riding in a taxi in Detroit. It was raining and all the prostitutes were standing under awnings. "Mom," said the boy, "what are all those women doing?"
"They're waiting for their husbands to get off work," she replied. The taxi driver turns around and says, "Geez lady, why don't you tell him the truth? They're hookers, boy! They have sex with men for money." The little boy's eyes get wide and he says, "Is that true Mom?" His mother, glaring hard at the driver, answers "Yes."
After a few minutes the kid asks, "Mom, if those women have babies, what happens to them?"

The Windows PC business is a lot different today than it was when we opened our store in 1995. In those days you would pay well over a thousand dollars for your new PC and you would expect to replace it in two or three years because of technical obsolescence. The speed and capacity of components like CPUs RAM, Hard drives, floppies, CDs, video cards was doubling every year and software developers were finding ways to take advantage of the increasing power and capacity of PCs. The infant Internet was a non factor for home and business users. Home and small business applications software was run in standalone mode. Corporate offices strung PCs together in server based networks called LANs (local area networks); their work was performed at the PC and stored on the server. The faster your computer, the more you could do. For single PC users, all activity was executed and stored right there in your tower or desktop computer. CDs and DVDs installed your programs and provided entertainment. Today the Internet has changed everything.
Today, for the vast majority of home and small business users, every activity we do, or ever did, on our standalone PCs is available in the “Cloud.” We don’t need big hard drives, Internet back-up and data storage is more secure. We don’t need CD/DVD player/recorders

The bottom line is that most business and home users may see no performance improvement from buying a new PC. If your old PC is broken or running slow, don’t give up on it until we see it. Spending one to two hundred dollars on your existing PC beats spending $500 on a new one that is no more capable than the one you have. In addition, buying a new “retail” PC in a “big box store” comes with some baggage. It will be loaded with “bloatware,” have Windows10 (no choice) and you will need to transfer your files and reinstall your programs and peripherals. Next week we’ll discuss “transition alternatives” for your present and future PC needs.
