It was another warm night at Graceland. And a young Elvis Aaron Presley surrendered his lanky 6’ frame comfortably into his favorite outdoor lounge chair. The one he took from the set of his 1963 film, “Fun in Acapulco,” where he was seen poolside in a cabana-like setting, complete with the obligatory feline beauties such as luscious film co-star, Ursula Andress.
Elvis thought back on all these things, as he often said, while lounging on the movie-set chair which became his favorite. The chair would forever be a physical reminder of that film. Though the film setting of Fun in Acapulco took place in early January 1963 in various hot spots of Acapulco, Mexico, Presley – ironically – was not on Mexican soil. His own shots had to be taken at the Paramount studios in Hollywood later that year, in March. Reason being that the globally-popular Elvis was declared “persona non grata” (person not welcome) by the Mexican authorities. The “King of Rock ‘n’ Roll” had already been banned from radio airplay before that, during which his records were burned in front of the city’s main square, El Zocalo. The rock ‘n’ roll superstar had made incendiary remarks about Mexican women which exploded in the press - and which re-surfaced time and again – each time with increased venom from the Mexican populace. It all began when Elvis was interviewed in Tijuana, Mexico, on February 19, 1957. When the interviewer back then inquired if Presley would one day like to sing in Mexico, the Memphis phenomenon gave a surly, but honest, reply. He answered no.
Explaining further, he stated that he found Mexico to be a distasteful and dirty country. Not leaving good enough alone, Elvis’ follow-up statement was like throwing a bag of rattlesnakes into a crowd: “I’d rather kiss three African-Americans than a single Mexican woman.” The remark caused panic-like reaction among Elvis promoters and ignited a pyrotechnical display of anger among Mexican government officials. The remark was resurrected by Mexico City’s largest and most influential newspaper at the time, El The Paper - 760.747.7119
Zocalo. It recreated a firestorm of controversy and ‘Elvis-hatred’ south of the border, and left Elvis at Hollywood’s Paramount Studios, filming his so-called Acapulco ‘location’ shots well north of the Mexican border.
In all fairness, it should be noted that Elvis Aaron Presley often spoke brashly and even recklessly at times, but his seemingly harsh words were often said at inopportune moments of his career-conflicted young life when he was set-upon as a purveyor of the devil’s music by America’s conservative sector of parents, pastors, school teachers, politicians, and often the media. If honesty truly be summoned, most if not all of us, have made regrettable shortcomings in life, be they verbal
or otherwise. To state otherwise would, unrealistically, place someone on the pedestal of perfection.
Though the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll was, himself, primarily of Western European mixture, including ScotsIrish, German, and some French Norman influence, he proudly voiced his Native American roots and was often photographed in full Native American regalia. He often spoke of his great-great-grandmother, whose Native American name was Morning White Dove (1800-1835) and was a full-blooded Cherokee, making Elvis, himself, 1/16 Cherokee. Presley often reflected back on these antecedents, sitting in the opulent comfort of his Graceland surroundings. After all, these were power

points of his personal and professional life. He never spoke of his anti-Mexican remarks openly. Partially because he felt hurt that it was all a fabrication in the first place. Only later, after his death, would elements of wrongdoing come to light regarding his socalled disparaging, ethnic remarks.
In the carefully-researched book, “Refried Elvis: The Rise of the Mexican Counterculture,” cogent author, Eric Zolov, found a startling paper trail which traced to a Herbe Pompeyo of Polygram Records in Mexico City. Pompeyo, in turn, points to a high-up Mexican political figure who ambitiously had high hopes of attaining Elvis Presley to sing at one of his lavish, private parties. Ostensibly, the Mexican political figure sent Elvis a

blank check to fill in as he thought was fair pay.
According to Eric Zolov, Elvis’ refusal to perform begat bad blood and placed revenge into the heart of the powerful Mexican political figure (not named) who was not used to being turned down. Zolov explains: “Presley, according to the story, returned the blank check, so the politico -- extremely offended -- invented the storyline about Elvis not liking Mexican women.” (“Refried Elvis: The Rise of the Mexican Counterculture,” book by Eric Zolov, UC Berkley Press, 1999). The alleged fabrication regarding Elvis opened a Pandora’s Box with the Mexican people to a frenzied degree and, myth-or-not, the damage was already unleashed and indelibly pressed into the memory banks. It would be far easier to put toothpaste back into a squeezed-out tube than overturn a wide-spread pandemic of angry people who may have drunk from a poisoned well.
But on this particular warm night at the nearly 14 acres that is Graceland, Elvis was in his favorite lounge chair, near the pool, which rippled and dazzled in a kaleidoscope of reflection under the soft moonlight. Elvis purchased Graceland when he was only 22, in 1957, at the tune of $102,500 – a tidy sum back then. Today’s equivalent of almost $900,000. One of the most unexpected facts is
Give Us This Day Our Daily Chuckle This week, a compendium of wit, wisdom and neat stuff you can tell at parties. Enjoy! Speeding Ticket - the Marine Procedure DC
Two Highway Patrol Officers were conducting speeding enforcement on I-15, just north of Oceanside, San Diego, California.
One of the officers was using a hand held radar device to check speeding vehicles approaching the crest of a hill. The officers were suddenly surprised when the radar gun began reading 300 miles per hour and climbing. The officer attempted to reset the radar gun, but it would not reset and then it suddenly turned off.
Just then a deafening roar over the treetops revealed that the radar had in fact locked on to a USMC F/A-18 Hornet which was engaged in a low flying exercise near this, its home
that Graceland was never, initially, called that by Presley. It was built in 1939 by Dr. Thomas Moore and his wife, Ruth, on a 500-acre farm dubbed “Graceland,” in honor of the original owner’s daughter, Grace, who was Ruth Moore’s great aunt. The Moore’s white-columned home also came to be known as Graceland, just as the farm was. Elvis had never before heard of the name Graceland – until he purchased the property, liked the sound of it, and kept the name, which is world-renowned today. And synonymous with Presley, himself. Elvis knew of all these antecedents as he sat, poolside, eating his favorite sandwich: peanut butter, bacon, banana, and honey – on toasted bread (always better toasted). He hated fish. He wouldn’t even allow his wife, Priscilla, to eat fish in any form or fashion, including tuna sandwiches. Presley was forever sensitive to smells. His romance with actress, Natalie Woods, was short-lived because, as the story leaked out – the Memphis megastar did not like the way she smelled. Elvis did greatly fancy French superstar, Brigitte Bardot, and forever regretted not making her acquaintance while stationed overseas. While overseas he discovered the joy of smoking thin German cigars, an appreciation he inherited when stationed in Germany, while in U.S. Army uniform. His German fans greatly loved Elvis Presley and called him the “Rock and Roll Matador,” because of his alternating stiff-
Back at the California Highway Patrol Headquarters the Patrol Captain fired off a complaint to the US Marine Corps Base Commander for shutting down his equipment. The reply came back in true USMC style:
"Thank you for your letter. You may be interested to know that the tactical computer in the Hornet had detected the presence of, and subsequently locked on to, your hostile radar equipment and automatically sent a jamming signal back to it, which is why it shut down.
Furthermore, an Air-to-Ground missile aboard the fully armed aircraft had also automatically locked on to your equipment location. Fortunately, the Marine Pilot flying the Hornet recognized the situation for what it was, quickly responded to the missile system alert status and was able to override the automated defense system before the missile was launched to destroy the hostile radar position.
The pilot suggests you cover your mouths when cussing at them, since the video systems on these jets are very high tech.

moonlit evening. If necessary, he would graduate to the greater accuracy of a rifle, complete with scope.
As he sat, leisurely lounging in his cabana chaise chair, his right hand slowly but deliberately reached downward, to his right side till his warm fingers felt the familiar touch of cold steel. The steel of a long barrel Colt 45 revolver. Presley loved firearms, owning 37 handguns, derringers, M-16s and other rifles, and even a Thompson submachine gun.
Most members at Graceland knew which nights to stay clear of the Graceland swimming pool area. Sometimes the sheriff and Memphis Chief of Police would be with the legendary singer, sipping his famous mint juleps, while the King took target practice.
American-born, Priscilla Presley, spoke German when she attended school there (Deutschland), but confessed to forgetting most of it. As recent as last year, when she was asked in an interview on April 8, 2015, if she still spoke German, she replied: “I took German while going to school in Germany but have forgotten most of it.”
On one occasion, a ricocheted bullet hit a parked car beyond the estate’s walls. The car’s owner was quickly pacified by the Memphis Mafia when they presented him with a brand new El Dorado Cadillac. Such an auspicious presentation of a luxury automobile mysteriously renders the new owner with permanent amnesia: “What bullet?”
But, tonight, his method-of-choice would be to start with the Colt 45, as from the Old Wild West. Holding the firearm, Presley delighted in anticipation of a favorite nocturnal routine of his, which was about to commence. First, he surveyed his Olympic-sized swimming pool close to his chair, and upon which he had placed numerous light bulbs, which now floated freely in all directions.
If anyone dared call the sheriff or police to render a noise complaint over Presley’s gunshots, such reports would sometimes have to be rerouted to Graceland, where these respective heads of law enforcement often sat with Elvis as he took aim at floating light bulbs. These law officials, themselves, never took target practice. That would be considered highly inappropriate; not to mention a threat to the King if they proved a better shot.
One by one, he shot till one-by-one the bulbs exploded into a million pieces, under an otherwise peaceful

Couple in their nineties are both having problems remembering things. During a check-up, the doctor tells them that they're physically okay, but they might want to start writing things down to help them remember .. Later that night, while watching TV, the old man gets up from his chair. 'Want anything while I'm in the kitchen?' he asks. 'Will you get me a bowl of ice cream?' 'Sure.'
'Don't you think you should write it down so you can remember it?' she asks. 'No, I can remember it.'
'Well, I'd like some strawberries on top, too. Maybe you should write it down, so as not to forget it?'
He says, 'I can remember that. You want a bowl of ice cream with strawberries.'
'I'd also like whipped cream. I'm certain you'll forget that, write it down?' she asks.
Irritated, he says, 'I don't need to write it down, I can remember it! Ice cream with strawberries and whipped cream - I got it, for goodness sake!'
Then he toddles into the kitchen. After about 20 minutes, the old man returns from the kitchen and hands his wife a plate of bacon and eggs. She stares at the plate for a moment.
Such shootings were not unusual for the undisputed ruler of rock ‘n’ roll.
'Where's my toast?'
An elderly couple had dinner at another couple's house, and after eating, the wives left the table and went into the kitchen. The two gentlemen were talking, and one said, 'Last night we went out to a new restaurant and it was really great. I would recommend it very highly.' The other man said, 'What is the name of the restaurant?' The first man thought and and finally said, 'What’s the that flower you give to someone You know, the one that's red thorns.'

'Yes, that's the one,' replied the man. He then turned towards the kitchen and yelled, 'Rose, what's the name of that restaurant we went to last night?'

However, while working as a student nurse, I found one elderly gentleman already dressed and sitting on the bed with a suitcase at his feet, who insisted he didn't need my help to leave the hospital.

According to many of the Memphis Mafia, Elvis was known to shoot the television set whenever he saw either Robert Goulet or Mel Torme on the screen. These were two singers which he not only disliked -- as we all have the inherent right to -- but he took it to the next level, a level which suddenly resembled a shooting range. The reasoning behind Elvis Presley not liking either Robert Goulet (1933 – 2007) or Mel Torme (1925 – 1999), has gone the way of pure speculation, depending on the sources, which all vary.
However, the primary reason regarding his disdain for Robert Goulet is difficult to dismiss. According to television host, Mike Douglas (1925– 2006), who hosted his own television show (“The Mike Douglas Show”), Presley had good reason to vilify Goulet on personal grounds. When singer-actor, Goulet, appeared as a guest on The Mike Douglas Show, Elvis shot the TV set when Goulet’s image appeared on the screen.
This shootout scenario occurred when Elvis was performing in Las Vegas, at the International Hotel. Presley was in penthouse suite, room 3000, on the 30th floor, which stretched across the entire top floor for expanded privacy. When Elvis first spotted Robert Goulet on his 25-inch RCA television set he froze and shouted, “Get that shit outta my house!” Elvis then pulled out his gun and shot Robert Goulet . . . on television.
Since the TV-shooting occurred on hotel property, by a high-profile entertainer, the print and visual media had a field day covering the

incident in sensationalized-fashion, around the world, in different languages. The bizarre shooting ordeal of Robert Goulet’s appearance on The Mike Douglas Show begat a circuslike media frenzy – and Elvis was in the center ring. All of which caused Elvis to be concerned about Mike Douglas’ reaction to all these negative news stories. All of this was duly recorded in Mike Douglas’ biography.
With all this media-fallout, Presley quickly made a call to Douglas, who was in Philadelphia.
Elvis had a congenital stutter, and he fumbled an apology over the phone, after which Mike Douglas reciprocated by inviting the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll to be a guest on his show. Presley was too embarrassed to accept: “Mr. Douglas. Mike. I can’t . . . honest to God. I just can’t.” Mike Douglas persisted, “Elvis, why not? You don’t even have to sing if you don’t want to.” Further attempts by Mike Douglas to persuade Elvis Presley to acquiesce, proved fruitless. (“I’ll Be Right Back: Memories of TV’s Greatest Talk Show,” Mike Douglas biography book, by Simon and Shuster, 1999.)
According to the inner-circle of personal friends of Elvis Presley, the Memphis sensation harbored hateful feelings toward Robert Goulet which clearly traced back to the late 1950s, when Elvis was in the U. S. Army overseas. Elvis’ girlfriend at the time was Anita Wood, a singer who was doing shows with Goulet. In writing one of her letters to Presley in Germany, Robert Goulet added a sly, sexually-veiled comment at the bottom of her letter. It was bad judgment on her part to allow it. Even worse, for Robert Goulet to author it. The handwriting by Goulet was in

bad taste, with teasing innuendo towards a military soldier serving duty in Europe. Goulet’s handwriting said: “Don’t worry, Elvis. I’ll take care of Anita while you are gone.” It was a merciless gesture to a forlorn soldier who anguished to be home. In November of 1959, Elvis wrote his girlfriend, Anita: “I can’t explain to you how I crave you and desire your lips and your body under me, darling.”
It was an unnecessary and cruel taunt by Robert Goulet, since the circumstances were real – that Presley’s girlfriend was beautiful, attractive to many men, away from her lover, and was in the presence of a handsome leading man in “Camelot,” the smash Broadway play Goulet starred in and proclaimed the next great matinee idol. Neither did it help later on when the New York Daily News Magazine appointed Goulet as: “Just the man to help stamp out rock ‘n’ roll.” Judy Garland was even star-struck over Robert Goulet’s sexual presence, describing him as a living 8x10 glossy, with blue bedroom eyes.
Garland was not alone in her amorous assessment of Goulet and would have to get in line behind Goulet’s vast number of adoring fans in expressions of affection. During Goulet’s concerts, beautiful girls would toss the keys to their hotel rooms, onto his stage. In light of all this, it was a tasteless and unnecessary stab at an absent Elvis to write the Anita Wood postscript. It was a stab to the heart, which Elvis never forgot. Many say for good reason.
Long after the passing of Elvis Presley, when Robert Goulet was in his sunset years and asked about the Presley-Goulet schism, Goulet forfeited his honesty and refused to be forthright. In later years the question persisted, and Robert Goulet tried to

downplay any such bad blood between himself and the Memphis singing sensation. In an interview with brilliant writer, Christopher Blank, on August 14, 2004, Goulet tried to set the record straight but, as always, he omitted the sordid details of his reprehensible postscript that taunted Presley about his girlfriend. Instead, Goulet lamented that the media always zeroed-in on him, stating in his defense: “He shot out Mel Torme. He shot out Frank (Sinatra). But I get all the credit.” Goulet then added another smokescreen to cover his tracks, “He also shot 50 other people. He was on drugs and emotionally unstable,” he would say in another interview. Again, no mention was made of the Anita Wood letter postscript. It was a most regrettable and unflattering gesture on Goulet’s part and he wished not to reference the smoking gun. And he never did. Presley had no qualms over appearing in public photos with Robert Goulet, once the King was securely reestablished. Reclaiming his throne, he could now be charitable.
But, never totally forgetful over the pain he once suffered from Goulet’s poison pen.
While it is true that Elvis Presley was often under various drugs and did, in fact, seem to shoot indiscriminately at objects, including chandeliers, light switches, and small appliances – amidst this smokescreen of generality – he did, nevertheless, have focused reasons on why he shot at specific people on television, including Frank Sinatra. Sinatra went so far as to testify before a 1958 Congressional hearing, condemning Elvis and the wake of rock ‘n’ roll popularity that followed him: “Rock and roll is the most brutal, ugly, desperate vicious form of expression it has been my misfortune to hear. It is sung, played and

On Friday, September 16, the Escondido Police Department conducted a DUI Sobriety / Driver’s License Checkpoint in the area Centre City Parkway and Decatur. Checkpoints are placed in locations that have the greatest opportunity for achieving drunk and drugged driving deterrence and provide the greatest safety for officers and the public.
DUI/Driver’s License checkpoints have been shown to lower DUI deaths and injuries. A major component of these checkpoints are the deterrent effects it has on those who might drive drunk or drugged impaired, bringing about more awareness and encouraging everyone to use sober designated drivers.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), checkpoints have provided the most effective documented results of any of the DUI enforcement strategies, while also yielding considerable cost savings of $6 for every $1 spent. Ninety Percent of California drivers approve of checkpoints. Drivers whose only offense was being unlicensed to drive were given the opportunity to locate the registered owner of the vehicle to either take or assign possession of the vehicle to a licensed driver. 7 vehicles were released to the owner or a designated driver. During the checkpoint, 4 vehicles were impounded. Following are other results from this event:
1326 vehicles drove through the
691 vehicles were screened in primary.
47 vehicles were sent to secondary screening (drivers who could not produce a driver’s license or who were suspected of being under the influence of alcohol or drugs)
20 total citations were issued during the checkpoint. (11 for unlicensed driver, 4 for suspended license, 7 for no insurance.) There was one field sobriety test conducted. Educational material was distributed regarding DUI problems.
Drivers caught driving impaired can expect the impact of a DUI arrest to include jail time, fines, fees, DUI classes, other expenses that can exceed $10,000 not to mention the embarrassment when friends and family find out.
Escondido PD will be continuing DUI/Driver’s License Checkpoints and DUI Saturation Patrols in the ongoing commitment to lowering deaths and injuries upon our streets and highways. Major Injury Traffic Collision

On Saturday, August 14, at 7:33 a.m., Officers from the Carlsbad Police Department responded to a call of a dog bite in the 3500 block of Roosevelt Street. The reporting party stated that he was riding his bicycle in the area and a Pit Bull chased him and bit him on the foot. Officers arrived at 7:38 a.m. and found the victim bleeding from a wound to his foot. The injury did not require medical attention. Officers located and cornered the dog in the driveway of a home. Officers used an abundance of restraint when the animal charged at them. They called for animal control officers and initially used pepper spray to keep the animal cornered in the driveway. Officers were eventually forced to shoot the dog one time with a less lethal, bean bag round when it attempted to attack them. The dog received minor injuries. An Officer with the Department of Animal Control arrived and took custody of the dog using a capture pole. Carlsbad Police Department would like to thank the San Diego County Department of Animal Services for their assistance.

He was born James Pierson Beckwith, the 3rd of 13 children, in Virginia in 1798 or 1800. He was a mulatto born into slavery. His father and master was a descendant of Irish and English nobility. It is not known when he changed the spelling of his last name. His father/master freed him by manumission in court in 1824, 1825, & 1826. He was apprenticed to a blacksmith until 19 years of age but was fired after an argument. His father moved his family to Missouri in 1809.

He’s generally a quiet man but once you get to know him he just might open up and commence to telling stories that will have you doubled over with laughter. He makes keen observations as well. Recently, we were talking about different shifts his waitresses and family work . . . we’ve gotten to know all of them, and they, us.
We asked when Charlie got a day off. “Day off ?” he asked. “I’m like a fencepost. Here every day. I don’t get days off.” (Nor, I suspect, does he want them. He’s just not happy unless he’s at the restaurant, greeting customers and ‘taking care of business.’ Football season is back. Hooray! My Nebraska Cornhuskers and San Diego Chargers both won.

The Unknown Elvis Cont. from Page 3 written for the most part by cretinous (sic) goons, and by means of its almost imbecilic reiteration, and sly, lewd – in plain fact, dirty – lyrics . . . it manages to be the martial music of every side-burned delinquent on the face of the earth.”
With Sinatra’s alleged underworld connections and other shady dealings, such pronouncements (only partially quoted above), seemed highly hypocritical. Sinatra had his own house-cleaning to do. Nevertheless, Sinatra’s blasting of rock ‘n’ music in general was a wide spray from his shotgun that included every rock ‘n’ roll performer, and not just a swipe in the direction of the Tupelo-born, hip-swinging, Elvis.
Elvis and Sinatra later would sing together, such as on the television Special, “Welcome Back Elvis,” on May 12, 1960. Like a lot of other folk, Elvis could be short-fused. And this means a possible “Reach for the Skies” shootout scenario for any source of his trouble. Luckily, these sources of vexation were inanimate objects – and not human. That Elvis was trigger happy was a ‘given’ among those who formed his coterie of friends as well as members of his Memphis Mafia.
On one occasion, Elvis Presley had purchased a beautiful, bright yellow De Tomasco Pantera for his girlfriend, at the time, Linda Thompson. After a verbal fight with Thompson, Elvis angrily jumped into her Pantera in hopes of making a dramatic exit, and wanting to light-up the tires in a screeching ‘burnout.’ Unfortunately, the 1974 Pantera refused to cooperate by not starting. There was only one logical thing left to do.
Elvis pulled out his revolver and shot the car. Several times. The exotic mid-engined Pantera sustained multiple bullet holes: one in the tire, one in the driver’s door frame, one through the floor pan, and one went totally through the steering wheel.
There is no defense that Elvis had a stockpile of weapons and loved to shoot things, often out of annoyance, or simply for leisurely fun, such as at poolside shooting-out floating light bulbs.
Ginger Alden, who was Presley’s final girlfriend during the final months of his life, reflected on one particular Elvis memory that she expects to remain indelible: “We were reading together and the toilet was making a noise,” Alden remembers. “Elvis got up, left the room, came back with a machine gun and proceeded to shoot the toilet.”
There have been many myths written about Elvis Presley, all of which seem amusingly unnecessary since his life is, without exaggeration, of a brightly-colored peacock in a drab
gray world. Everything he did, he made a splash in the news. He would often sign autographs on the breasts of his female fans, “Elvis” on the left breast, and “Presley” on the right one. On such occasions, he would often stand back to admire his handwriting. His unusual life and eccentricities began early on. When he was only two years old, he once wiggled out of his mother’s lap so that he could walk over and join the choir singing, during services at the Assembly of God Church.
Elvis had many deeply-scarred wounds, springing from a painful past. He was born into poverty, a shame which was later rebuked by him in the form of freely giving away expensive cars, often to strangers.
He was born blond in hair color which he carefully darkened in his later years, using Miss Clairol 51D, called “Black Velvet.” He wished his hair to be jet black, as he saw in his favorite movie star, Tony Curtis, whom he greatly admired and emulated. He even dyed his eyelashes, which in time begat health complications in later years. And to keep his lips soft and velvety for kissing, he often used A&D ointment. Deep down there remained a religious streak, which never totally departed him. For all his rabblerousing ways, drug addictions, sexual escapades, and other transgressions, he still held-out hopes of redemption and standing in front of the pearly gates. He believed that, somehow, the Almighty would understand his crooked life, and the road he had walked. In 1965 he spoke about entering a monastery.
His close emotional connection to his mother was, at times, uncanny. There seemed to be an almost spiritual bond between them. Once while touring, Elvis and his band members were en route to another town when their car, unexpectedly, caught fire. When Elvis phoned his mother later that same night, she immediately asked, “What happened?!” When a stunned Elvis asked, “What do you mean?” she proceeded to hysterically tell him, “I had a dream and I saw fire, a big fire all around you!!” The conversation left Elvis thunderstruck.
As world-famous as he became, he still remained sensitive to criticism, and forever nurtured a thin-skin. For example, he greatly loved watching “The Tonight Show,” on television. Until one evening when he heard Johnny Carson joke about him being, “Fat and 40.”
Some things in his widely-varied life still haunted him, day in and day out. Because some things he chose to never forget. In all his 42 years on Earth, he never forgot his twin brother who died at birth, thirty-five minutes before Elvis entered the world. His mother was poor and gave birth at home, on the morning of January 8, 1935. The stillborn twin was given a name: Jesse Garon
Presley. His parents decided to add his stillborn twin’s middle name (without the ‘G’) to Elvis’ as a way for Elvis to always remember his twin brother . . . who never made it. So “Garon” became “Aron,” then finalized as “Aaron” so that Elvis Aaron Presley was forever melded to his precious sibling, who was buried poorly by an impoverished family, in an unmarked grave in nearby Priceville Cemetery, in East Tupelo, Mississippi.
Unknown to the world at large, Elvis remained tormented by a great sense of loss and grief – and unfounded guilt – for his lost twin brother, whom he never got the chance to know. Elvis’ own mother, Gladys, stated in interviews that her son, Elvis, achieved great things because he “possessed the power of two people, and was living for two souls.” Psychiatrists who have found Elvis an interesting study, agree with his mother, Gladys. His great agony and yearning for contact with his foreverlost twin brother, and the painful feelings of guilt brought on with Elvis’ global fame, made it difficult on some levels for Presley to completely enjoy his success completely – knowing full-well that his brother was left without.
Later in his life, Elvis made clear that he was never at rest, emotionally. He even went so far as to refer to his dead twin as his “original bodyguard.” A bodyguard of sorts who made Elvis try harder, insulating Elvis from failure, protecting and galvaniz-
A Roadmap of Priority
Tired of sitting in backlogged traffic on the I-15 or just trying to get your kids to school and then to work? California’s population has almost doubled since the 1970s, but our highway system has not kept pace and must be upgraded to keep our people moving and our economy humming. That is why our caucus introduced a ninepoint, $6.6 billion plan to fund transportation infrastructure and fix our roads with existing resources. Our state has the fifth-highest fuel tax in the nation, yet studies consistently rank our highway system as one of the nation’s worst. As the economy has rebounded, tax revenues have increased, but essential highway upgrades have been delayed. During this year's Transportation Special Session called by the Governor, I introduced ABx1-14 to make a formal commitment in the State Budget General Fund to fund
ing him with the knowledge that Elvis Presley was living for two souls. For his brother’s sake, he had to succeed.
In his twilight years, this small boy from Mississippi was, ultimately, left with only a poverty portion of hope -- his most cherished hope -- that he would, someday, somehow, find a way to breach the vault of heaven, and navigate his soul, with divine guidance, to a final re-union with his twin brother. Almost 40 years after his death, Elvis Presley remains the most famous, the most celebrated, and the most imitated figure in all entertainment, from the four corners of the world.
When the Japanese Prime Minister, Junichiro Koizumi, paid a landmark visit to President George W. Bush, in 2006, he had one big request, president-to-president: Japan’s Prime Minister was a die-hard Elvis Presley fan, and the powerful Japanese leader requested to visit Graceland. Making George W. Bush, the first sitting United States President, to do so. (Former president Jimmy Carter visited Graceland in 1991, but not while serving as U. S. President.) This year, in 2016, the number of Elvis Presley impersonators has reached a historic record-high number. These Elvis Presley imitators saturate the world, in most every civilized culture, as no other American

transportation by $1 billion annually without raising taxes or fees, including $500 million for highway upgrades and $500 million for local streets and roads.
According to early predictions by the Legislative Analyst’s Office (LAO), the three-year revenue forecast is such that we can fully fund Prop. 98 (education funding), the Rainy Day Fund (reserves) and still dedicate $1 billion annually to transportation. All without raising taxes! The need to provide reliable highways, streets and roads is one of the primary responsibilities of state government, and it’s one I take very seriously. Our economy and our way of life depend upon a network of highways and roadways designed for a growing population of almost 40 million people, not an antiquated system built many decades ago. Rebuilding our state’s highways can wait no longer.

figure, before or since. An estimated 85,000 Elvis impersonators perform around the world today. A level of popularity which is now considered, logically, unreachable in its power and scope. A pervading influence over and beyond any other entertainment figure in world history.
Elvis Presley started to wear a Jewish Chai necklace around his neck because he had learned that his mother Gladys’ maternal grandmother was of the Jewish faith. Presley later added a Jewish Star of David on his mother’s gravestone in the mid-1960s. As previously cited, Presley was extremely close to his mother his entire life. When his mother entered Methodist Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee and died of a heart attack a few days after, Elvis was hysterical. A 3:00 a.m. call from the hospital notified him of his mother’s passing. Elvis entered his mother’s hospital room and the door shut behind him. Witnesses outside the room could hear the loud piercing cries of anguish and weeping and long, loud prayers. The screams of torment and separation, he recalled, as he remembers hugging the lifeless body of his mother one last time.
Upon his mother’s gravestone, to the left, Elvis added the Jewish symbol that is the Star of David. To the far right side, is the Christian Cross. Between these two diverse religious symbols are etched these words from Elvis: “Gladys Love Presley. Sunshine of our house.” And just below these words are added a phrase from Biblical Scripture: “Not mine, But thy will be done.” Why both the Jewish and Christian symbols on his mother’s gravesite? Elvis always wanted to take care of her, even in the afterlife. As best he could, he wished to provide safe passage for her – to Heaven, where he hoped to see her again. He wished to take no unnecessary chances.
Once, when a reporter, who knew Elvis to be of Christian background, asked why he wore the Jewish Chai necklace. He answered: “I don’t want to miss out on going to heaven on a technicality.” Elvis was serious. He wished to make no errors which might prevent his reunion with his mama who bore him, and his lifeless twin brother – whom he planned to embrace and never again become separated.
Holding the casket tightly, he finally screamed loudly, “Everything I have is gone!!”
Elvis Presley was suddenly reduced to a child again, and there was no shame in it.
It took several men, including members of the Memphis Mafia, his cousin, Billy Smith, his father, Vernon, and still others to muster the combined strength in pulling Elvis away from his mother’s coffin, upon which his arms remained fastened like bands of steel. Finally, as the casket lowered into the ground, a restrained Presley screamed and pleaded loudly, one last time: “Please don’t take my Mama away! She’s not dead! She’s just sleeping!”
In retrospect, often those who critique Elvis Presley in negative terms, fail to place themselves into his shoes, to walk the long unforgiving road as he did. Nor do they pay honor to the Biblical Scripture which warns: “Judge not, lest you be judged.”

In 1824, he joined Gen. Wm. Ashley's Rocky Mountain Fur Co. as a wrangler and became known as a trapper and mountain man. He was also known for telling tales about his adventures.
In July 1825, a trapper and colleague, Caleb Greenwood told a campfire story of Beckwourth being the child of a Crow chief. This was widely believed. Later, Beckwourth claims to have been captured by the Crows. Independent accounts suggest his stay was planned by the Fur Co. to advance their trade with the tribe. He lived with them for 8-9 years. He married into the tribe.
In 1837, he returned to St. Louis and volunteered with the U.S. Army to fight in the Second Seminole War. Historical records show that he actually was a civilian wagon master in baggage.
During his life he was a trapper, Indian fighter, store keeper, trader, professional card player, and rancher. In 1851, he is credited with discover-

Sections of Hadrian's Wall remain along the route, though much has been dismantled over the years to use the stones for various nearby construction projects.
Reasons for the construction of the wall vary, and no recording of an exact explanation survives. Theories have been presented by historians, mostly of an expression of Roman power and Hadrian's policy of defense before expansion.
Border Walls Are Nothing New
The idea of a border wall is nothing new – the concept goes back more than 20 centuries. One of the most famous can still be seen in northern England – it’s named after the Roman emperor who built it.
“Hadrian's Wall,” also called the “Roman Wall,” or“ Picts' Wall,” was begun in 122 AD as a defensive fortification in the Roman province of Britannia. It ran from the banks of the River Tyne near the North Sea to the Solway Firth on the Irish Sea, and was the northern limit of the Empire. A significant portion of the wall still stands and can be followed on foot along the adjoining Hadrian's Wall Path. It is the most popular tourist attraction in Northern England and was designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1987.
Celebrities such as Marlon Brando, Dean Martin, Tennessee Ernie Ford, Ricky Nelson, Sammy Davis, Jr. and countless others expressed their deep condolences.
At the funeral, when the casket of Gladys Love Presley (1912 – 1958) was about to be lowered into the ground, Elvis panicked at the sight of it. For many, the emotional image of Elvis was too much for those in attendance to experience. Many turned their heads and wept openly and loudly as a forlorn Elvis Presley jumped up and wrapped his arms around the coffin refusing to let his mother leave him.
Hadrian's Wall was probably planned before Emperor Hadrian's visit to Britain in 122 AD. According to restored sandstone fragments found in Jarrow which date from 118 AD or 119 AD, it was Hadrian's wish to keep intact the Empire, which had been imposed on him via "divine instruction.” The fragments then announce the building of the wall. It is entirely possible that, on his arrival in Britain in 122 AD, one of the stops on his itinerary was the northern frontier to inspect the progress of the building of the wall. There were mile castles with two turrets in between. There was a fort about every five Roman miles. From north to south, the wall comprised a ditch, wall, military way and another ditch with adjoining mounds. It is thought the mile castles were staffed with permanent garrisons, whereas the forts had fighting infantry and cavalry. In addition to the wall's defensive military role, its gates may have been customs posts.
Hadrian's Wall was 73.0 miles long; its width and height varied according to the construction materials available nearby. East of the River Irthing, the wall was made from squared stone and measured 9.8 feet wide and 16 to 20 ft. high, while west of the river the wall was originally made from turf and measured 20 ft. wide and 11 ft. high, which was later rebuilt in stone. These dimensions do not include the wall's ditches, berms and forts. The central section measured 7.8 ft., on a 10 ft. base. Some parts of this section of the wall survive to a height of 10 ft.
Another possible explanation for the wall is the degree of control it would have provided over immigration, smuggling and customs. Limits did not strictly mark the boundaries of the empire. Roman power and influence often extended beyond the walls. People within and beyond the limits travelled through it each day when conducting business, and organized check-points like those offered by Hadrian's Wall provided good opportunities for taxation. With watch towers only a short distance from gateways in the limits, patrolling legionaries could have kept track of entering and exiting natives and Roman citizens alike, charging customs dues and checking for smuggling. Construction started in 122 AD and was largely completed in six years. Construction started in the east, between milecastles four and seven, and proceeded westwards, with soldiers from all three of the occupying Roman legions participating in the work. The wall remains one of the world’s long-lasting man-made edifices. Much like the Great Wall of China. No one is entirely sure why they were built.

In my sincere opinion, Julio Iglesias sings the best love songs on the planet. Four separate times in my life I have purchased tickets to see him in concert but the first three times did not work out for a variety of unpredictable reasons.

process of telling their stories. Veterans representing all branches of service and ranks are involved and they meet at the Veterans Association of North County, 1617 Mission Avenue, Oceanside, 92054. A writing prompt was given last year to write about being away from home during the holidays while in service. The stories produced were enlightening, heartfelt, humorous, and heart-rending. These “under the helmet” collection of prose and poems were published in an anthology. Copies are available for free to VA/Military hospitals, USO Centers and similar places vets might find themselves during the holidays. The book is in final stages of publication and perhaps there are veterans out there who love to write and would be interested in joining this group. Most of the authors live in the North County corridor (Escondido/Vista/San Marcos/Oceanside area).

Pastor Sam Brumit Mission 316, San Marcos Need Clarity
I am often tempted to want clarity from God and wish that He would show me exactly what to do in certain situations. I’d love it if he gave me a step by step synopsis of His will. Most often... He doesn’t.
Years ago, I ran across an account, in the life of Mother Teresa that has often helped me remember that I don’t need CLARITY as much as I need TRUST. Maybe it will be of help to you when you want immediate answers from the Lord in difficult circumstances. Here’s the story: “When John Kavanaugh, the noted and famous ethicist, went to Calcutta, he was seeking Mother Teresa … and more. He went for three months to work at “the house of the dying” to find out how best
“No,” Mother Teresa answered, “I will not do that.”
When he asked her why, she said, “Clarity is the last thing you are clinging to and must let go of.” When Kavanaugh said that she always seemed to have clarity, the very kind of clarity he was looking for, Mother Teresa laughed and said: “I have never had clarity; what I have always had is trust. So I will pray that you trust God.”
In my life and ministry, I have ultimately found God’s will is a wonderful place to live…even if I don’t always see things clearly at the time. Now we "see through a glass dimly, but someday face to face". In this battle we are in, I don’t always have access to the strategic plans but I fully trust my divine Commander in Chief. Join us for services at 10:00 AM on Sundays at the Community Center at 3 Civic Center Drive in San Marcos (directly across from the library).

New California organic recycling laws for 2016
This April, a new California o r g a n i c s recycling law went into effect that requires businesses and multifamily complexes of five or more units to recycle their organic waste. Organic waste means food waste, green waste, landscape and pruning waste, nonhazardous wood waste, and foodsoiled paper waste that is mixed in with food waste. The new law will go into effect in three phases:
• April 1, 2016: Businesses generating 8 cubic yards of organic waste per week
• January 1, 2017: generating 4 cubic yards waste per week • January 1, 2019: generating 4 cubic yards of (trash) per week
Businesses of organic
Businesses solid waste
The City of San Marcos and EDCO will be working closely with food waste generating customers to meet the new State requirements using a threepronged approach: prevention of food waste, donation of edible food, and collection of non-edible food. Businesses and multi-family communities will be contacted by the city and EDCO about the new requirements and how they can comply. For more information, visit www.sanmarcos.net/organics.

ing Beckwourth Pass through the Sierra Nevadas. In 1854/1855 an itinerant judge, Thomas D. Bonner, stayed at Beckwourth's ranch and hotel in the Sierra Valley. Beckwourth told him his life story which Bonner wrote down. The book, The Life and Adventures of James P. Beckwourth, was published in 1856. Beckwourth never received his proceeds from the sale. The book was regarded as campfire lore but later regarded as a valuable source of social history especially for life among the Crow Indians, although all details are not reliable.

Another cheerless Padres season is coming to a merciful conclusion, the Chargers have begun their charmingly erratic annual stutter-step through the NFL schedule and our NCAA Div I universities have started football season as basketball waits in the wings. San Diego stands alone as a beacon of sports futility among America’s ten largest cities. Amazingly, no San Diego’s professional or NCAA Division I college team has ever won a national championship in baseball, basketball or football. Several years ago on a cold rainy night, at a tavern in Julian, we found out why. It was Halloween. The cold wind blew curtains of rain down Julian’s dark, empty streets. Inside Bailey’s Barbecue and Tavern, the hearth fire crackled warmly and the aroma of wood smoke and roast meat filled the flickering gloom. We sat nursing after dinner drinks idly listening to two men at the bar lamenting the Padre’s dismal season and discussing the Chargers chances to make the play-offs. A dark, well dressed man who had been sitting alone at the bar got up to leave. As

04/06/1934 ~ 09/14/2016
ESCONDIDO -- Sidney Arthur Emerson, Jr., age 82, of McKinney, Texas, passed away September 14, 2016. He was born April 6, 1934, in Akron, Ohio, to Sidney Arthur Emerson, Sr. and Ava Violet (Roy) Emerson. On November 17, 1956, Sidney married Selma Ellis in Akron, Ohio. In 1965, Sid and Selma moved their young family to Escondido, CA.. Sid bought the Escondido Coin Shop on 111 N. Broadway. Sid was owner, operator, and sole proprietor of Escondido Coin from 1965 to 1989. Sid spent his postCoin Shop years pursuing his passion and appreciation for collectible Cigar Box Label Art. During the five decades spent building his business and pursuing related hobbies and interests, Sid
“The Chargers will break my heart?” scoffed the second man. “Yes,” said the dark man, “the Chargers, the Padres, USD, UCSD and San Diego State, they will all break your heart. It cannot be changed.” He continued toward the door. The first man yelled after him “what can’t be changed?” He stopped at the door and smiled “why the curse of course,” and he stepped out into the rainy night.
“What’s he talking about,” asked the first man looking at Amanda, the bartender. “It’s about the curse,” she said as she wiped the bar where the stranger had been sitting. “It’s a very sad, tragic story if you want to hear it.”
Both men nodded. Nome and I moved up to the bar and the other couple in the tavern left their table and took seats at the bar. The six of us sat attentively in the flickering firelight as Amanda began. “In 1929 San Diego State was negotiating to buy land on Montezuma Mesa for their new campus. An Indian clan living on Vulcan Mountain owned the property that SDSU needed for their athletic fields. The Indians agreed to sell the property with the stipulation that SDSU would supply basketball, baseball and football equipment for the clan’s reservation school. SDSU also agreed to provide a four year athletic scholarship each year for a member of the clan as selected by the clan developed many rich and rewarding lifelong friendships which, along with his family, he cherished above all else. “Papa” Sid Emerson was preceded in death by his parents, Sidney and Ava Emerson; and siblings, Jim Emerson, Teddy Emerson, and Jeannette Provence. He is survived by his wife, Selma Emerson of McKinney, Texas; three children, Linda (Randy) Sampson of McKinney, Texas, Brian (Lee Ann) Emerson of Madison, Georgia, and David Emerson of Coppell, Texas; five grandchildren, Ashley (Tom) Pontarelli of McKinney, Texas, Eric Sampson of Denton, Texas, Mack Emerson of Atlanta, Georgia, Patrick Sidney Emerson of Atlanta, Georgia, and Rachel Emerson of Coppell, Texas; two great-grandchildren, Leo and Logan Pontarelli of McKinney, Texas; and a sister, Carol (Harry) Boivin of Akron, Ohio. A memorial service will be held at Unity Way Church, 171 Unity Way, Vista, California 92083, at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, September 24, 2016. Graveside service will be at Oak Hill Memorial Park, 2640 Glenridge Road, Escondido, California 92027, at 9:00 a.m. on Monday, September 26, 2016. In lieu of flowers, donations in Sidney’s name to Unity Way Church would be appreciated. Alhiser-Comer Mortuary in Escondido is handling the arrangements.
elders. Clan chief Mountain Bear’s son received the first four- year baseball scholarship as a pitcher.
As the years passed the school honored the scholarship agreement but the baseball coach never played the lad. In the boy’s senior year (1933) Mountain Bear complained to the University President who pressured the baseball coach into promising to play Mountain Bear’s son in the final game of the season.”
“The big day arrived and the entire Vulcan Mountain clan came to the playing fields on Montezuma Mesa to see Mountain Bear’s son pitch for the Aztecs. It was a tight game with the conference championship at stake. The tension grew among the clan members as Mountain Bear’s son continued to sit on the bench. In the bottom of the eighth inning of a scoreless duel, Coach sent Mountain Bear’s son to warm up in the bull-pen along with his ace reliever, Wally McComb.”
Amanda paused looking up at the clock over the fireplace, “last call” she said “who needs a refill.” We all did and waited patiently while Amanda refilled our drinks. We were on the edge of our seats as Amanda cleared her throat and continued. “The excitement amongst the clan members grew as Coach signaled the bullpen for a ninth inning relief pitcher. But it wasn’t Mountain Bear’s son who strode to the mound, it was McComb. McComb was tagged for a two-out home run and the Aztecs failed to score in the bottom of the ninth, the game and conference championship was lost. Mountain Bear’s son was nowhere to be found on the field after the game but when the team returned to the locker room they found him hanging, lifeless, from a shower head, his team jersey wrapped tightly round his neck.
At that moment there was a flash of lightning followed immediately by crashing thunder that shook the building. The lights in the bar dimmed then brightened. The room suddenly seemed to grow cold. Amanda shivered.

“What happened then?” asked the first man nervously.
“The clan took Mountain Bear’s son home to Vulcan Mountain and buried him in sacred ground. At the end of three days of mourning they built a huge fire and burned all the athletic equipment that SDSU had given to the reservation school. As the acrid smoke rolled down the mountain and spread out toward San Diego the tribal shaman stood beside Mountain Bear at the top of Vulcan Mountain and spoke this curse. “San Diego will not see final victory in these sports for one hundred years.” “And that’s the story of the San Diego curse” said Amanda with a shrug. The second man broke a long silence, “If that’s true we can’t win a World Series, Super Bowl or NCAA national championship in football, basketball or baseball.” “Not until the year 2033” Amanda nodded. “So who was that guy?” asked the first man. “That’s the great-great grandson of Mountain Bear,” said Amanda. “You don’t really believe that curse stuff do you?” scoffed the first man.
Amanda leaned forward “Well then you explain it. None of our teams have ever won any of those championships and the Padre’s have the worst all time won/lost record of any team in the majors. Besides, it doesn’t matter what I think, he believes it and he puts his money where his mouth is.”
“He bets against all of our teams?” said the second man incredulously. “That’s how he makes a living” said Amanda. “Did you happen to notice that red car parked out front when you came in?” The second man’s jaw dropped. “That was his Ferrari?”
