Volume 47 - No. 38

SOURCE OF JOY AND LAUGHTER. There is an amusing grandparent anecdote where grandpa and grandma stop by a roadside restaurant to enjoy lunch before continuing their journey to visit their grandkids. There at the lunch table grandma forgets her sunglasses, which she doesn’t remember until she and grandpa are back on the freeway. This causes grandpa to start fussing and complaining as he tries to find a place to turn back around. Grandpa’s complaining soon stops as they drive into the restaurant parking lot. As they both get out of the car, grandpa mumbles to himself, “Well, I guess while I’m in there I might as well get my hat.” The story always makes me chuckle. Everyone has fond, loving memories of their grandparents and for good reason – they often bring laughter and sunshine to an often dark world.

GRANDPARENT POPULATION ON THE RISE. Grandpas and grandmas are making big history right now. According to the New York Times and U. S. Census Bureau, there are more grandparents in America than ever

before. As a matter of fact, the grandparent population explosion in the U. S. has risen by 24 percent since the year 2001. And in 2014, the ranks of grandparents rose to almost 70 millionstrong. And that number is still growing fast.

GRANDPARENTS RAISING GRANDKIDS. There is little doubt that grandparents are often indispensable, even life-saving elements in our lives. Their values and teachings often affect us throughout our respective lifetimes; their wisdom even shapes us for the better and helps us find our true selves and our rightful place in the world we live. You are never truly alone, when you have grandma and grandpa to guide you.

That grandparents play an integral part of our lives is not just a fanciful exercise in sentiment and nostalgia – it’s just plain fact.

In truth, more and more grandparents are raising their grandchildren in America today. And as a consequence, they are helping shape our future world. Across our great country, mil-

lions of grandparents are raising their grandkids and these statistics are on a sharp rise. Today, the number of grandparents raising their grandchildren is up 7 percent since 2009. Today, it is reaching new heights. GRANDPARENT POVERTY LEVEL. Yes, more grandparents than ever before are raising their grandchildren, but, the sad part of this ledger is that 1 out of 5 grandpas and grandmas that are rearing their grandchildren have incomes that fall below the poverty level. In other words, for what little they have in money, grandparents often step-in to rear their grandchildren at a great financial sacrifice to themselves. Despite their struggles to make ends meet, financially speaking, grandparents are often there when their grandchildren are abandoned by their true parents. As such, grandfathers and grandmothers are not only true treasures in life, they are sometimes the last best hope we have for survival. U. S. PRESIDENTS REARED BY GRANDPARENTS. There is a lengthy list of famous individuals who were, at least partially, reared by their grandparents. This list includes former U. S. President, Barack Obama, who said of his grandmother who passed away on the eve of his election day, “And while she’s no longer with us, I know my

Grandparents Continued on Page 2

grandmother is watching, along with the family that made me who I am.”

Also, there is former president of the United States, Bill Clinton, whose grandparents took over his care when his father died in a car crash. Under the tutelage of his grandparents, a young Bill Clinton discovered an early love of education and by the age of 3, he was already counting and reading. “My grandparents had a lot to do with my early commitment to learning,” Clinton has often said.

With Barack Obama and Bill Clinton, it is astounding that their respective grandparents had a hand in helping shape future U. S. Presidents. Little did these grandparents know at the time that they were shaping destiny at the potter’s wheel, that they were raising future leaders of the United States of America. FAMOUS PEOPLE REARED BY GRANDPARENTS. There is a lengthy list of famous individuals who were raised by their grandparents, especially in modern times, such as the mighty literary giant, Maya Angelou, Pulitzer Prize nominee and recipient of dozens of awards and over 50 honorary degrees. The celebrated writer/poet

who was abandoned by her parents and raised by her grandmother, said: “I loved my grandmother. I try to be the same kind of grandparent I had. My grandmother was the best.” In 1993, Angelou recited her poem “On the Pulse of Morning” at President Bill Clinton’s inauguration, the first poet since Robert Frost to recite a poem at a presidential inauguration. In her publication of “I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings,” she speaks lovingly of the grandmother who salvaged her life.

Some names and stories of famous people who were reared by their grandparents may well surprise, or perhaps even shock you, into realizing just how valuable America’s population of grandpas and grandmas truly are. Let’s see if you can correctly guess the names of prominent individuals who were reared by their grandparents. WHICH PERSON BELOW WAS REARED BY A GRANDPARENT? A. First Lady, Melanie Trump B. Oprah Winfrey C. Ronald Reagan D. Hillary Clinton

If you selected “B” above, Oprah Winfrey, you are right on the button. The importance of having a grandparent is crystallized in Oprah Winfrey’s own words, “It actually probably saved my life.” Mighty powerful words from Winfrey, but it rings of truth. When Oprah’s mother relocated to the Midwest in search of employment, little Oprah stayed on a Mississippi farm where she was raised by her beloved grandmother, Hattie

Mae Lee. There she stayed until age 6 when her grandma fell ill and Oprah had to be sent to Milwaukee to be with her mother. But, it was Oprah’s grandmother who left a life-saving foundation: “It is the reason why I am where I am today because my grandmother gave me the foundation for success that I was allowed to continue to build upon.” It was during Oprah Winfrey’s most formative and impressionable years that she grew to what she is today: “My grandmother taught me to read, and that opened the door to all kinds of possibilities for me. And had I not been with my grandmother . . . I probably would not have had the foundation that I had.” WHICH CELEBRITY BELOW WAS RAISED BY A GRANDPARENT? A. Bob Hope B. Marilyn Monroe C. Elvis Presley D. Carol Burnett

The correct answer is “D,” Carol Burnett, and that’s no laughing matter. Contrary to her comedy career which tickled an entire nation, Carol Burnett lived a most unhappy, traumatic upbringing. Both of her parents were alcoholics who were completely unfit to raise her. After her parents divorced, little Carol moved in with her grandmother, Mabel Eudora White, whom she affectionately called “Nanny.” They lived in a boarding house near Burnett’s mother in a very poor section of Hollywood, California. Every week, Carol Burnett’s grandma would somehow save up enough money for them to go to the movies together. It was there, sitting in a dark theatre with Nanny where little girl, Carol Burnett, discovered her love of entertainment. In time, Burnett would FOR SALE BY OWNER.

When I heard Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson were guest preachers at a nearby church, We decided to go there and check them out in person.

As soon as we sat down, Pastor Sharpton came over to us. I don't know why, maybe it was because we were the only white people in the church.

He laid his hands on my hand And said: "By the will of Jesus the Lord Almighty, and the will of God, you will walk today." I told him I was not Paralyzed. Then Jesse Jackson came by and said to me: "By the Grace of God, and his Son Jesus, the Lord Almighty, you will walk today."

Carol Burnett developed a special secret code of tugging at her ear lobe at the end of every televised Carol Burnett Show. The famous tugging of her left ear was Carol’s gesture to her grandma watching at home that meant: “All is well, I love you.” The great comedy star, Carol Burnett, never let herself forget the grandma that barely had enough money to take her to the movies each and every week. Little did her Nanny know at the time that her little giggling grandchild seated by her side would, someday, grow up to become one of history’s mightiest purveyors of laughter and joy. All thanks to grandma, of course.

When Carol Burnett’s grandmother died, a part of Carol went with her. In an episode titled, “Intimate Portrait,” Carol Burnett tearfully recalled her beloved grandmother’s final moments in the hospital. Burnett simply ended her sentence with, “And then she died.” Despite her beloved Nanny’s death – who was the pivotal life force that raised her from a small little girl – Carol would continue a special connection with her grandmother. Even after her grandmother had passed away, during the run of The Carol Burnett Show, Carol continued the tradition of ending each program by looking into the camera lens and tugging her ear. She still wanted to tell her grandma that all was well, and that she still loved her. WHICH ACTOR BELOW WAS REARED BY GRANDPARENTS?

Jack Nicholson Clint Eastwood Johnny Depp Denzel Washington

If you’re on the money, then “A” above, Jack Nicholson, rings the bell. In the case of movie actor, Jack Nicholson, there were some pretty unusual circumstances in his upbringing. One might even say bizarre. Nicholson was reared by both grandparents but he always thought they were, literally, his parents – a secret that was hidden from him until he was 37 years old.

In 1974, during the premiere of Jack Nicholson’s movie, Chinatown, Time Magazine decided to do a cover story on the popular actor. The magazine’s researchers uncovered the fact that Nicholson’s ‘mom’ and ‘dad’ were in reality, his grandma and grandpa. Nicholson received a call from Time Magazine staff asking him to verify their findings of his ‘parents’ actually being his grandparents. Since Nicholson was completely unaware of the true identity of his grandparents, he flatly denied the ‘rumor.’ Adding to the rumor was Time Magazine’s allegation that not only were Jack Nicholson’s ‘parents’ really his grandparents, but, also the bombshell allegation that his ‘sister,’ June, was in fact not his sister at all – but, his biological mother. When Time Magazine first asked Jack Nicholson these deeply personal questions in 1974, Nicholson was already 37 years old and his ‘sister,’ June, (his actual mother) had already passed away back in 1963. Although the actor

was completely unaware of these facts at the time, he was sufficiently bothered and curious enough from Time Magazine’s queries to make a call of his own. Jack Nicholson called the husband of his other ‘sister,’ Lorraine, (which in truth was his aunt) to ask pertinent questions on his upbringing. Jack’s surviving ‘sister,’ Lorraine, knew the real truth, and finally broke the incredible news to actor Jack Nicholson. The tale of the tape was finally made clear: Jack’s ‘mom’ and ‘dad’ were, truthfully, his grandparents. Jack’s ‘sister’ named June, was in fact his mother, making his other surviving ‘sister,’ Lorraine, his true aunt. But, why the charade in the first place?

The reason for the fabrication was that Jack Nicholson’s real mother, June, had become pregnant with Jack when she was only 16 (some sources say 18) and being unmarried at the time as well as unable to responsibly raise him alone, she gave him over to her parents to rear.

Jack’s grandparents agreed to raise Jack as a son, pretending to be his real parents, so that his mother could continue her promising dancing career without inviting scandal at the time. This family secret was hidden from Jack Nicholson until he uncovered his real parentage during his late 30s.

To this day, Jack Nicholson’s biological father remains a mystery, though there have been several unconfirmed guesses. Nicholson, himself, says he does not know nor does he care to ever find out who his real father was.

Looking back on it, when Jack Nicholson was spending time with his real mother, June (who he believed was his sister) as she was dying of cancer in the hospital, the truth was onesided: He looked lovingly at his ‘sister,’ while her eyes were secretly seeing her son for the last time.

While on a location film-shoot in Mexico, Jack received a call that his ‘sister’ June had just passed away. He never knew, at the time, he was once talking and holding his mother in his arms for the final time, at the hospital where she passed away.

GRANDPARENT HUMOR IN OUR LIVES. Grandparents are the spice of life, the seasoning which makes the world a sweeter place to live. I don’t know about you, but, I can’t imagine a world without grandma and grandpa. In my opinion, grandparents are among the wisest and most important people on the planet.

The now 80-year-old native of Neptune City, New Jersey, actor Jack Nicholson – the most nominated male actor in the history of the Academy Awards – has never played a movie role that was more surprising and dramatic than his real-life upbringing.

But, also, grandparents can often be the most fun to be with, especially as babysitters. They seem more willing to fill us up with lots of sweets and fun food and then hand us back over to mom and dad with a funny smirk on their faces – like it’s payback time -when it’s time for us to go home and we’re all revved-up on a sugar high.

Today, there are, literally, millions of examples of grandparents raising their grandchildren with just plain, common, everyday people, across this great land of ours. It often seems that grandpa and grandma are always there when most needed. WHY GRANDPARENT POPULATION ON THE RISE. One reason for the grandparent explosion is that more people are becoming grandmas and grandpas at much

No one, not even mom or dad, are smarter than grandpa and grandma. That’s because mom and dad were raised and taught by them. As one humorist recounted, grandparents can still trick our parents. He cites for example, the time he went with both grandma and grandpa, as a little boy, to their doctor’s appointment and found out a big secret. In the follow-up hearing test, the doctor said both grandparents still had perfectly normal hearing because of their new hearing aids. “I’ll bet your family is happy to hear about your perfect hearing,” the doc-

There are many other famous individuals who were partially, or wholly, reared by their grandparents, such as country-western singer/song writer, Willy Nelson, who grew up with grandpa and grandma after his parents divorced while Nelson was just an infant. Nelson ended up writing his first song at age 7 and, as the old saying goes, the rest is history.

A famous comic once said that when she was 7 years old her friend asked her: “When do people turn into grandmas and grandpas?” That’s when she answered, “Whenever grown-ups stop lying about their age and start bragging about it.”

tor asked them. That’s when grandpa said, “Oh, we haven’t told them, yet. We both just sit around and listen to the conversations. I’ve changed my will three times, already!”

I don’t really know if it was gospel or not, or if it was just a joke, but when I was 9 years old my friend Rodney told me about his grandma coming over from the Philippines. According to friend Rodney, the U. S. Customs Officer asked his grandmother, “Do you have any dried fish, salted fried shrimp, or mangoes?” That’s when Rodney said his grandma politely answered: “Had I known you wanted any, I would have brought you some.” OUR LAST BEST HOPE. It doesn’t really matter if the storyline is apocryphal or not. The gist of it is, that grandpa and grandma are truly indispensable in bringing laughter and joy into our lives. Also, in the bright sunlight of truth, grandparents often hold the nucleus of our great country – the families – together by stepping in and raising their grandchildren when necessary. They are often the glue that keeps families from falling apart. And they often prevent abandoned grandkids from suffering life-long trauma by rearing them with total love and acceptance. In short, grandparents are often the irreplaceable parts to help fix a broken world, full of broken dreams. When divorce, drug addiction, or death takes parents away, it is often grandpa and grandma who stand in the doorway with wide, opened arms for their grandchildren. The Associated Press reports that grandparents who raise their grand-

Police Seek Assistance in Identifying Prowler – NorthCoastal Area

The city of Carlsbad Police Department seeks the public’s help in spotting and reporting a prowler that has been reported in the north-coastal area of Carlsbad. The prowler, described as a Hispanic or Caucasian male, has been reportedly looking into windows while residents sleep. In at least two instances, the suspect entered a residence through an unsecured window. When he encountered the residents, he fled the house. The Police Department is taking a multi-faceted approach to catching the prowler that includes crime scene investigations, crime analysis, extra patrols, and developing a composite sketch of the suspect.

The community plays an important role in helping the Police Department solve these crimes. First, by helping the Police Department identify the suspect shown in the composite sketch. Next, by being the eyes and ears of your neighborhood, and reporting suspicious activity and crime, 24/7, when it is taking place. Finally, by securing doors and windows that might provide access. Home security information can be found on the City of Carlsbad’s website here https://goo.gl/jcma7i. If you can identify the suspect in the composite sketch, please call the Police Department at 760-931-2197. Foiled/Failed Bank Robbery

Last Thursday a would-be thief tried to rob a bank in Vista. He failed.

Grandma passed away over 50 years ago but not a month goes by but what I find myself remembering her, thinking about her and, on many occasions, thinking “would Grandma approve of this?” before making some decision. Several times I’ve avoided making dumb mistakes because I feared doing something that would make Grandma less than proud of me.

Enough said. And shown.

I love Mike Reilly. One of the finest human beings around. But if he doesn’t turn the Nebraska program around quickly . . . he’ll be a “former head coach at Nebraska.” (I had predicted several months ago that the Huskers would not have a good year. Unfortunately, I stand by that prediction.) The glory years of Husker football are 20-30 years ago. Husker fans are patient . . . to a point. As former Oakland Raider’s owner Al Davis often said . . . “just win, baby!” Same goes for my Huskers. Nebraska fans demand a winner. It is time.

This meant that twice a day I had to journey over to the Madison Mansion and feed our two puppies and those infernal cats. (I’m a dog guy, Evelyn loves cats, and dogs, and animals of every description. She even allowed once or twice that I was probably an okay guy).

often rings of truth.

children has risen in 2015 to almost 3million and is sharply on the rise now. As Maria Moissades, head of the Massachusetts’ Office of the Child Advocate says, there is a growing number of children abandoned by parents because of their addiction to various drugs today, from alcohol to prescription drugs, and from heroin to crack cocaine and everything in between. As head of the state’s Child Advocate, Maria Moissades paints a sad scenario: “You’ve got grandparents who thought they were going to spend their retirement fishing and traveling. Now they’re raising as many as five grandkids.” In 2017, more and more grandparents are becoming the safety net, the last best hope by stepping in and – at a great financial sacrifice to themselves – giving all they have to love, care, and raise another generation of innocent children. As previously stated, 1 out of 5 grandparents that are raising their grandchildren today are well below the poverty level.

Yet, for all they do and sacrifice, grandparents in their old age, are not always shown reciprocation which they richly deserve. Instead, they are often neglected, abused, and forced into nursing homes, often against their own will. It is there, in these nursing homes where they often spend their final hours, rarely visited -- if visited at all. GRANDPA AND HIS LITTLE GRANDDAUGHTER. Here is a popular story that captures the essence of neglect in the final years of grandparents. It also bears witness to unswerving love between a grandparent and his tiny granddaughter. The storyline

often drop food from his plate onto his lap or, worse, onto the floor. You see, his soldier-like hands sometimes shook with feebleness. Sometimes he would accidentally spill his glass of milk causing his son and daughter-in-law to look at each other with great annoyance. Whenever mishaps occurred, they began to scold him loudly, to be more careful. Though he was old and couldn’t help himself, inside of his trapped body, he still possessed a sharp mind and he felt sorry and ashamed of himself.

There was an elderly grandpa who, in his greener years, was very handsome, strong, and keen of mind. He was once a young military man who had saved many lives out in the battlefield. He stood straight and tall and his strength and decency and sense of fair play were well-respected during his courageous defense of our country. However, as with all things in life, he began to falter to the onslaught of the years. He soon became frail and weak and vulnerable in his autumn years. He no longer stood straight and sure as the mighty oak tree he once resembled. Instead, he now walked slower and more unsteady with every step.

His son and daughter-in-law made it clear that he was an unwelcomed burden to the family. Especially at suppertime.

However, some things never changed.

However, one thing never changed. His little granddaughter never saw him as anything less than the wisest and most important hero in her life. She loved saying the ABCs for him because he cared enough to hear them over and over again, and never got tired of hearing them. When she would finish, grandpa would always laugh and clap his hands. Grandpa was special that way. Sometimes they would even play hide-and-go-seek together. The little granddaughter felt so special and so happy to have grandpa around.

He still saluted the American flag whenever he saw it, or stood up as best he could whenever he heard our National Anthem. His frame was no longer straight, but stooped and hunched heavily over his cane. But, he stood nonetheless. He was now an old man.

Because of his frail years the former proud father and military man was placed in the care of his son and daughter-in-law with whom he lived, along with his grandchild, aged 5. He often held his granddaughter, sang Hickory, Dickory, Dock and recited other nursery rhymes with her. At times the little girl would sing Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star to her grandpa and sometimes her heavy eyelids would close as she would gently lay her small head on grandpa’s chest, and there she would nap. Safely in his arms.

Once more at the dinner table, grandpa tried his utmost to keep the peas from rolling off his spoon, but, they still dribbled onto the kitchen tile below. Scolded to be more careful, they finally decided to have grandpa eat by himself in the kitchen corner, on a small table. And to make certain he didn’t break any of his daughter-in-law’s fragile dishes, his porcelain plate was now replaced with a wooden bowl.

But at the supper table, grandpa would

All seemed to be back to normal. But,

scraps of food from grandpa’s wooden bowl would, somehow, still continue to find its way to the floor. His little granddaughter noticed as grandpa sat, alone, away from his family, that he often had a tear in his eye. Then, one day it happened.

When the family was eating their supper, the little girl was on the floor beside her grandpa’s chair, gathering pieces of food scraps that grandpa had dropped off his wooden bowl. Seeing their daughter this way, her parents quickly grew upset with her. Both grandpa’s son and daughter-in-law abruptly got up from the dinner table and asked their 5-year-old daughter, “What are you doing with those scraps?!” That’s when the little girl stopped and looked up and said, “I’m making wooden bowls for you Mommy and Daddy, so when you both grow old.” Often out of the mouths of babes, comes the expected truth.

From that day onward, as the story goes, grandpa always ate at the dinner table – with the rest of the family. And whatever mishap he may have had, he was never again scolded, but smiled upon. And the little girl noticed that she never again saw a tear in grandpa’s eyes. But, she did notice a twinkle in his eyes. As well as a big smile. God bless our grandparents, verily, they are true treasures in our lives. This is Friedrick Gomez’s 82nd cover story for The Paper.

A Few Good Bills By Assemblymember Marie Waldron There are good bills amidst the hundreds of bills awaiting the Governor’s signature.

Helping local school districts save for special projects or financial emergencies was impacted by a cap that was placed on school reserves in 2014. This year, I supported SB 751, by Senators J Hill, (D – San Mateo), and Steve Glazer (D – Orinda), simplifying restrictions and exempting many districts from the cap. I joined Assemblymember Susan Eggman (D – Stockton) as co-author AB 1219 to support food deliveries to the needy by clarifying food donor laws to assure restaurants, grocers and individuals that they can donate food in good faith without fear of being sued.

Streamlining California’s business licensing practices is a must, and I was pleased to support SB 182, introduced by Senator Steven Bradford (D – Gardena). The bill simplifies licensing requirements for Lyft, Uber and other drivers who will now be allowed to obtain a single license from the jurisdiction in which they live. This eliminates any requirement to obtain addi-

as author, but you call him "Frederick" Gomez under his photo at the end of his stories. What gives? Is it "Friedrich" or "Frederick"? Just curious. Editor’s Note: It is Friedrich. Your grumpy old editor screwed up. Again.

Anyway, we think he's the best writer ever and we never want to miss an issue written by him because we're afraid we're going to miss something fascinating. My aunt says that for being so young, he seems to know a lot about people like Dick Clark's American Bandstand, Ed Sullivan, Red Skelton and Elvis Presley. But my uncle is angry at Friedrich or Frederick because my uncle Louie is a big, ex-Marine and dog-lover and he said Mr. Gomez made him cry after reading "Owney, the Post Office Dog." What a beautiful story that was. But, my uncle Louie is still angry. Keep up the good work there in California! And don't publish unfinished jokes again cause my uncle Louie makes house calls! From the Contreras family from Newark, New Jersey.

Editor’s Note: When we first met Mr. Gomez I knew him as Frederick; later, I learned he spelled his name in the Germanic

tional licenses to drive passengers across boundary lines into other jurisdictions.

I also supported AB 360 to assist our veterans. The bill, introduced by Assemblymember Al Muratsuchi (D – Torrance), requires the State Bar Association to coordinate pro-bono civil legal assistance for veterans and their families who cannot afford legal services.

My bills, including AB 4 to prevent voter fraud by requiring a voter to be notified if records are altered online, and AB 1386, raising awareness of the importance of speaking to a genetic counselor for newly diagnosed breast or ovarian cancer patients to help focus treatment options, are also positive bills. The Legislature reconvenes on January 3rd, and I’m looking forward to another busy, productive year serving you in Sacramento.

enjoyed your column in The Paper; principally biographical...always interesting, but your current column 'From depression to war' eclipses them all because of the threatening situation between N. Korea and the US; really between Korea and the world, and subject to the tantrums of a couple of egomaniacs.

Our population has seen pictures of the devastation at Hiroshima and Nagasaki but too few realize that the lives lost there are dwarfed by the multiple-millions lost by 'conventional' warfare. Thanks for bringing those numbers into focus.

My father was indirectly among the millions lost and impacted by WW1 and later by WW2. He joined the British army within two weeks of the declaration of war in August 1914, survived the massacres of Ypres and trench warfare to be demobilized in 1919.

He was badly shaken by the prospect of war in 1939, and he died that December, partly due to the after-affects of having been gassed in the trenches.

Thanks again for reminding us all that those who forget history are likely to repeat it! Regards,

A Note from the Editor

Historically Speaking by Tom Morrow

Many of our readers and advertisers are aware that last week we had a major medical problem in our home. My eldest son, Scott, had his right foot amputated, about 3” below his knee. He’s fine. Looking better and feeling better than he has in years.

His mother, his brother Ken, and I, all wanted to thank so many of you who took the time to call, to send us email, to drop us a note, and a number of whom visited Scott while in hospital.

At this writing he is still in the Rehab Unit of Palomar Medical Center in the old hospital location, downtown Escondido. He is scheduled to come home in a day or two. We want to thank the outstanding physicians, nurses, medical techs, and entire staff of Palomar Medical Center (the new hospital) as well as those in the Rehab Center. You gave me my boy back.

We are blessed to have you as friends and supporters.

America as 7,000 Writers Discovered During the Depression

In 1935 at the height of the Great Depression, President Franklin Roosevelt’s Works Project Administration created a new branch designed to provide writers, historians, teachers, librarians and other whitecollar workers employment. The Federal Writers’ Project employed approximately 7,000 in the then-48 states, each earning $70 a month – a living wage in those days. Like a similar program for artists and sculptures, the writer’s project was an attempt at providing jobs. From its inception in 1935 through late 1939, the Federal Writers' Project was directed by Henry Alsberg. A former lawyer who became interested in the theater as a writer and as a director of off-Broadway productions. From its inception the guides were primarily put together using letters sent in by the writers, many of them not very good at putting words together.

Associates who also appear as project correspondents include Merle Colby, George Cronin, Joseph Gaer, Reed Harris, and Claire Laning. Among the folklorists represented are Benjamin Botkin and John A. Lomax. Poets and writers whose works appear in the records include, Nelson Algren, Sterling Brown, Jack Conroy, Ralph Ellison, and Richard Wright. Alsberg directed each book be divided into a series of sections such as the natural setting, history, agriculture, industry, transportation, culture, education, religion, fine arts, media, etc. Each major city had a chapter of its own. About half of each book was devoted to a series of "tours" of the state.

Essayist Valerie Jean Kramer studied the various guide books, which are still available and cataloged in the Library of Congress. She wrote: “Each tour follows a particular road and describes what one sees traveling from one edge of the state to the other, giving explicit directions and mileages.” But, Alsberg’s directive to write about the various attractions each state offered took a sharp turn. Writers, particularly in the South, found an America mostly hidden from “polite” society. It was an America many didn’t expect. It was a time where communication across the nation wasn’t instantaneous like today. There were newspapers for those who could read, regional

radio, and movie newsreels. But much of what the writers found didn’t appear in any of those mediums. Many poor Americans outside of the Eastern cities with reliable transportation had never ventured more than 50 miles from their homes.

Writers began talking with various residents of the states where they lived. They wrote down those conversatons – family histories, personal recollections and activities they witness. Northern writers discovered America was divided into two countries – white and black. Those interviews or "life histories," were sent in as letter, compiled and transcribed by the staff of the “folklore” section of the Writers' Project. Today, the Library of Congress collection includes 2,900 documents representing the work of more than 300 writers from 24 states.

The more than 2,300 first-person accounts of those born in slavery and 500 black-and-white photographs of former slaves were collected. The state with the most surprising discoveries was Florida, where the white sandy beaches filled with wealthy northerners gave way to black workers in the swamps. One old worker in the turpentine-producing swamp told the writer he had worked there 27 years. When asked why he didn’t leave, he replied. “Every time I try to leave, they (bosses) find me and bring me back.” Writers also discovered the Ku Klux Klan and the terror they rained down upon Black people. Western writers found Native American people no better off. Most of the various tribes had been decimated by the government forcing them to live in the White man’s culture. Children were taught English in schools and discouraged from speaking their own language. After two generations, their respective languages were lost. The interviews included veterans of the Little Big Horn, the Geronimo war and other campaigns. They told how, over time, the various treaties had been ignored or forgotten. While this work was being accomplished, Republican naysayers in Washington, D.C. were declaring the Writer’s Project a waste of money. U.S. Representative Martin Dies Jr., RTexas, who chaired the House UnAmerican Activities Committee (HUAC), maintained from its inception the entire WPA program was filled with Communists and Nazi sympathizers.

The series was finally printed, with Idaho’s guide being the first released. The guide series immediately became best sellers. Many books in the project have been updated by private companies or republished without updating. World War II ended the project. Alaska and Hawaii were not U.S. states during the period and not covered by the project. Some of the guides are available on Amazon and other major booksellers and occasionally found in used book stores. Tom Morrow's books are available at Amazon.com in soft-cover or via Kindle E-mail.

History Museum Finds Local Link to “Hamilton” - The musical play "Hamilton" is the hottest ticket on Broadway and any other city where it is staged, and the book of the same name has been on the best-seller list for more than a decade. Taking a cue from the national attention to this American founding father, staff at the Valley Center History Museum recently researched its archival files and found a link between Alexander Hamilton and a local family named Adams. The family also can claim John Adams as an ancestor. The material is now part of a permanent exhibit on the history of Pauma Valley at the History Museum. Jack C.

Adams sold parcels of land, formed the first water district, and built the Pauma Valley Motor Lodge in 1948 whose guests included world-class scientists enroute to the new observatory atop Palomar Mountain. His parents were Willis and Elizabeth Schuyler Adams. She was a descendant of Hamilton's wife, Elizabeth (Betsey) Schuyler. He was a great nephew of John Adams, the nation's second President. John Adams of Pauma Valley and his wife Jean had one daughter whom they named Elizabeth, who was better known in the region as Betsy Adams, a lifelong Pauma resident. John died during a hunting accident in 1955, while Betsy

Pastor Tom Fry, Retired, Church of the Nazarene Hand in Hand

The intersection was busy with students hustling to school, parents dropping them off and disinterested drivers late for work.

I was the stand-in crossing guard working the crosswalk in front of the middle school. As the time for school approached, the crowd increased. I noticed one Dad in the crowd of students. He was walking up the sidewalk, hand in hand with his daughter. As they got closer to the corner, she slipped her hand out of his to adjust her backpack. She didn’t reach back for his hand, nor did he reach for hers. They stopped at the back of the group waiting at the crosswalk, and when I signaled them to cross, Dad held back while she went with the other students as they crossed

Walking back to the curb, I could see Dad, still standing where he had stopped. His eyes followed his daughter until the school buildings blocked his view. Silently, he turned and walked back down the sidewalk.

He had probably been walking his daughter to school since Kindergarten, hand in hand right to the classroom door. But you know how middle schoolers are: asserting their independence, trying to be grown up, wanting to be cool.

I wondered if God had felt like that Dad. He created the Garden of Eden and walked there with Adam and Eve until, one day, they slipped their hand out of His, asserting their independence, trying to be grown up, wanting to be cool. Others of us, at various times in our lives, have done the same thing. And like Dad, God stands watching, waiting. He will be there whenever you’re ready and will take your hand when you offer it.

A Jewish man was leaving a convenience store with his espresso when he noticed a most unusual Italian funeral procession approaching the nearby cemetery. A black hearse was followed by a second black hearse about 50 feet behind the first one.

Behind the second hearse was a solitary Italian man walking a dog on a leash. Behind him, a short distance back, were about 200 men walking in single file.

The Jewish man couldn't stand the curiosity. He respectfully approached the Italian man walking the dog and said: "I am so sorry for your loss, and this may be a bad time to disturb you, but I've never seen an Italian funeral like this. Whose funeral is it?" "My wife's."

''What happened to her?"

"She yelled at me and my dog attacked and killed her." He inquired further, "But who is in the second hearse?"

“My mother-in-law. She came to help my wife and the dog turned on her and killed her also.” A very poignant and touching moment of Jewish and Italian brotherhood and silence passed between the two men.

The Jewish man then asked softly "Can I borrow the dog?" The Italian man replied, "Get in the line."

Avoiding malware. Part II

Your Antivirus, Firewall and Spyware defense software do a great job stopping 3% of contemporary Internet “Malware” attacks but they won’t stop the other 97%. That’s your job.

They are known as “Malware,” even though many still call them “viruses.” Strictly speaking, computer viruses are destructive programs that replicate themselves eventually filling the hard drive and killing the computer. Twenty years ago “viruses” were created for the purpose of sabotage mostly by twisted, smart ass “New Age” Luddites simply for the fun of seeing how much havoc they could wreak. Today the Luddites are history, “Malware” is all about money and you can’t make money by killing computers.

Community Praises the Library’s “Summer Reading Challenge” – The Escondido Public Library’s 2017 Summer Reading Challenge which ran from June 19-July 31, was a resounding success. 1,262 members of the Escondido community completed 8,639 challenge activities, and participants ages 0-17 read for a total of 959,774 minutes. Readers were rewarded with prizes, many of them donated by local businesses who were enthusiastic to play a part in the community event. Community members of all ages had rave reviews for the Summer Reading Challenge; from a mother of five participants which said it keeps the whole family together, to pre-teens, teenagers, all ages had glowing remarks for the program and in addition, winning prizes and coupon packs were a big hit also. Adult reader Michele was just as enthusiastic and said that “without these challenges, I never would have picked up an adult graphic novel, but I did and was surprised that I really enjoyed it.

Teams of highly skilled criminals create these sophisticated “social engineering exploits.” Once inside your PC the “malware” sets about achieving its assigned tasks using your OS (operating system) and hardware. Their tasks may be to make you a target for ads, guide you to unwanted sites, report your browsing habits, mine your keystrokes for passwords and other personal data, establish your PC as a “robot” in a criminal network known as a “botnet,” use your email account, steal your identity or simply extort money from you.

The way they get you to help them is often very clever. They may impersonate your bank, credit card issuer, E-mail service or a trusted source like Adobe or Microsoft. They may ask you to update your security information, click on a link or contact them by phone. They may contact you by mail or phone requesting that you return their call or click a link. They may contact you by an Email from a trusted friend or an official notice from the IRS, DOJ, FBI, DHS, ICE, CIA or any State or local law enforcement agency. They may contact you masquerading as your water, telephone or electric utility, cable or internet provider. You may get a notice by phone or on screen that “Windows” wants to help you with a computer problem. You may get an Email appeal from a dear friend who
