Volume 49 - No. 40
By Friedrich Gomez
2019 IS AN HISTORIC ANNIVERSARY YEAR. It’s hard to believe that 2019 marks the 54th Anniversary of The Beatles’ historic concert here at San Diego’s old Balboa Stadium. It was an event which placed San Diego on the front cover of cosmopolitan newspapers, in various foreign languages, worldwide. It was a moment chiseled in history for all-time.

of the Panama Canal.
The concrete edifice at the time of the British Invasion was already over half a century old, having been built back in 1914 as part of the 1915 Panama-California World Exposition to celebrate the opening
Woodrow Wilson’s visit to Balboa Stadium would see (and hear) the very first U. S. Presidential speech to ever use an electronic voice amplification system.
However, before Britain’s immortal foursome from Liverpool, England first set their celebrated footprints on Balboa Stadium grounds, the historic stadium was already old and legendary – on its own might.
Four years later, on September 19, 1919, the 28th President of the United States, Woodrow Wilson, spoke in front of over 50,000 people at Balboa Stadium (even though seating capacity at the time was only 34,000).

Almost exactly 8 years-to-the-day after President Wilson’s famous speech endorsing the creation of The League of Nations, aviation’s legendary Lone Eagle, Charles Lindbergh, visited San Diego, where history’s immortal “Spirit of St. Louis” aircraft was built by Ryan Airlines. Lindberg -- one of America’s greatest loved heroes of all-time – made one of the grandest and most spectacular entrances in modern times when his low-flying plane flew at only 100-feet over Balboa Stadium, dipping his aircraft’s wings and circling the stadi-

um 8 times! At a time when airplanes were still a miraculous marvel, his daring and electrifying flyby at a low elevation of only 100feet drew a deafening roar from the stunned celebrants below!
Lindberg landed and was then paraded through the city of San Diego en route to Balboa Stadium where a massive 60,000 wildlyenthused crowd greeted him (10,000 more than President Wilson) as if he were a legendary emperor returning to the gates of Rome. Newspapers around the globe published photos and reported to the world in bold print that the adoring Balboa Stadium crowd had to, literally, be restrained and physically held-back by almost 700 U. S. Marines!
By the time history’s revolutionary and most popular architects of rock ‘n’ roll music arrived for their firstand-only concert in San Diego, Balboa Stadium was already adorned with a rich legacy of her own. But, whereas the historicity of the 1915 Panama-California World Exposition, and the past visit of President Woodrow Wilson, and even Charles Lindberg at Balboa Stadium are relegated mostly to history books and -- realistically speaking -- not widely-known to the

Deep Thoughts of a Retired Man
I mowed the lawn today, and after doing so I sat down and had a cold beer. The day was really quite beautiful, and the drink facilitated some deep thinking. My wife walked by and asked me what I was doing, and I said, "Nothing."
She then said that’s what you did yesterday—to which I replied—"I WASN’T DONE , SO I'M IN THE MIDDLE OF FINISHING RIGHT NOW." The reason I said "nothing" instead of saying "just thinking" is because she then would have asked, "About what?" At that point I would have had to explain that men are deep thinkers about various topics, which would lead to other ques-
memory banks of those living today, the concert of The Beatles is still a fact as evergreen, ever-present, and vividly remembered, as if only yesterday. Even for many of us who were not even alive back then. It was a moment in time, like no other.
WHEN THE BEATLES CAME TO TOWN.
Beatlemania fans here. Now, for the second straight year, the Beatles 1965 U. S. Tour schedule, again, did not include San Diego and Beatles fans here decided they had enough, and loudly vocalized their discontent with Mayor Curran’s office, entreating him to intervene on their behalf and bring the four Mop-Tops to San Diego.
Little did anyone know at the time that a historic change of events
not make a ‘live appearance’ on American television until February 9, 1964, on The Ed Sullivan Show. It was there, on The Ed Sullivan Show, that they would make incredulous history. The Beatles would be watched by a staggering viewing audience of over 73-million strong, in over 23-million households across America. Such an expanse of humanity glued to their television sets would amount to 34% of the entire population of the United States at the time. It was a massive, unprecedented, and historic televised event.
It was a sunny day in March of 1964 when San Diego Mayor Frank Curran’s office was stormed by Beatles fans demonstrating and carrying signs that read, “Bring Us the Beatles!” It was a friendly demonstration with Mayor Curran laughing and smiling broadly. San Diego was not officially on the Beatles’ tour schedule for that summer and San Diego’s Beatles fan club president, Kathy Sexton, organized the protest which was widely-reported by the print and visual media. The fact that the Beatles overlooked San Diego as a stopover point in their first 1964 U. S. concert tour did not sit well with tions.
Finally I pondered an age old question: Is giving birth more painful than getting kicked in the groin? Women always maintain that giving birth is way more painful than a guy getting kicked in the groin, but how could they know?
Well, after another beer, and some more heavy deductive thinking, I have come up with an answer to that question Getting kicked in the groin is more painful than having a baby, and even though I obviously couldn't really know, here is the reason for my conclusion. A year or so after giving birth, a woman will often say, "It might be nice to have another child." On the other hand, you never hear a guy say, "You know, I think I would like another kick in the groin."
I rest my case Time for another beer, and then maybe a nap. Lexophiles

The Beatles had initiated the immortal “British Invasion” and the world of music had never, before or since, seen anything like it. The revolutionary British group already had their first American television exposure on NBC’s widely popular “The Tonight Show,” on January 3, 1964. But, on that first televised occasion, The Tonight Show host, Jack Paar, only presented them via film footage. The Beatles would Titanic. It's syncing now.

“According to the Nielsen Ratings’ audience-measurement-system, the show had the largest number of viewers that had been recorded for a U. S. television program, to that time.” The Beatles would morph into, arguably, the greatest and most influential rock ‘n’ roll group in world history. They would, most definitely, reshape the landscape of American pop culture and seduce millions, worldwide, to their every beck-and-call. Like the seductive sounds of the ancient Sirens of Greek mythology, rabid Beatles fans would charge their stage, dodging security personnel, scaling barriers and fences, screaming uncontrollably, with girls succumbing to a dead faint in the wake of pandemonium. By the hundreds, riot police often carried these star-struck fans -

mind. Two people were with me when I got the diagnosis; my son and a special friend. I remember the tears came for a few minutes, then I dried my eyes and said “OK, what are my options; what do I do and where do we go from here?” After all the options were discussed I took some time to determine what it was I needed to do for me! Remember, each of us is different; we have varying needs; our bodies respond differently to treatments, etc, so your decision needs to be right for you. Shortly thereafter, the decision was made; action was taken, and here I am almost a 20 years survivor. You can be too! You have to stay positive in spite of life’s challenges.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month – As Breast Cancer Awareness Month approaches each year, I always think back to that time for me. There is nothing scarier than to hear the doctor say “Yes, the biopsy shows cancer.” You have tried to reconcile with yourself that it may be cancer but to actually hear the words is devastating. I remember when I heard those words almost 20 years ago. Around that time was when there were more and more breast cancer survivors than there had been prior to that, so that was encouraging. I knew several friends in prior years that had died of the disease, so when you hear it yourself, that’s the first thing that comes to

The world of entertainment had never before seen anything like Beatlemania. In city after city, John, Paul, George, and Ringo, became a lightning rod of sorts. This unlikely foursome, springing forth from unpretentious beginnings in Liverpool, England, would do nothing short of revolutionizing the entire music industry.
However, tidbits of hidden fact and drama were masked behind-thescenes, largely unknown to the general public, then and now. This hidden drama would find its way, from east to west, all the way to sunny San Diego.
Beginning in Eastern America, the unstoppable Beatlemania tidal wave of popularity that was sweeping the music world was so formidable, and so overwhelming, that the Beatles received a (little known) request from the U. S. White House in Washington, D. C., asking for a small bid of recognition from the long-haired foursome. In August of 1964, the White House press office asked the Beatles to agree to be photographed alongside the newly-installed American president, Lyndon B. Johnson, in his plans to lay a wreath on the grave of President John F. Kennedy, who

had been assassinated less than 9 months prior to the Beatles landing in America. Beatles manager, Brian Epstein, politely refused the request on the grounds that it was not within the guidelines of the Beatles to accept “official invitations” from American political partisan factions during their initial tour.
All the while, San Diego fans were waiting, watching, hoping, that the phenomenally popular Beatles would, somehow, see their way to perform in San Diego. Officially, the city of San Diego would not make the cut in the Beatles first 1964 massive tour schedule. However, this would all change the following year, due to unforeseen forces quietly working behind the scenes at the time. A secret plan that would soon explode into reality – and San Diego’s Balboa Stadium would be in the cross-hairs.
The mop-top Beatles were not only dazzling in their music and onstage performances but they had a rare ‘gift of gab’ during their press conferences which catapulted them to even further, dizzying heights of popularity. It was almost too much to grant them -- they were not only the greatest iconic and culturallyinfluentially rock ‘n’ roll band in world history – but they were also the fastest-on-the-draw with amusing adlibs that would make the most seasoned standup comic turn green with envy, especially since the Beatles improvised without cue cards. Herewith is just a sampling.

Reporter: “Ringo, why do you think you get more fan mail than anyone else in the group?” Ringo Starr: “I don’t know. I suppose it’s because more people write me.” Reporter: “How do you find America?” John Lennon: “You turn left at Greenland.”
Reporter: “Is it true none of you can read or write music?” Paul McCartney: “None of us can read or write music. The way we work is like, we just whistle.

casm became so legendary as to have reporters not wanting to miss out on any Beatles press interviews. Such as in these actual scenarios:
Journalist: “What did you say when your airplane’s engine began smoking as you landed today?” Ringo Starr: “Beatles, women, and children first!” Journalist: “What will you do when Beatlemania subsides?” John Lennon: “Count the money.” Journalist: “Do you like topless bathing suits?” Ringo Starr: “We’ve been wearing them for years.”
Beatles humor would play-out, especially in San Diego, where San Diego reporters would bring out the best in the Beatles’ arsenal of wit and improvised retorts.

The Paper • Page 4 • October 3, 2019 Former Orange Glen High School Teacher, Convicted Sex Offender, Released
Travis Putnam, 33, a former Orange Glen Social Science teacher, plead guilty to two molestation charges involving two teen age boys. The sentence involves one year in jail and three years of probation as well as lifetime registration as a sex offender. Authorities confirmed Putnam’s actions had nothing to do with his employment as a teacher at Orange Glen High School. A group of residents have already expressed concerns about when Putnam will be released in 2020. They live on or near Echo Valley Lane in Escondido and fear Putnam will move back in with his mother who lives in that neighborhood.
A review of Putnam’s college credits and teaching credentials appear to reveal a very talented teacher with impressive credentials and training. Though the incidents to which he pleaded guilty were not associated with his teaching position or his school the registration as a sex offender will surely follow ihm and make it difficult for him to gain employment. He was terminated by the Escondido Union School District and his teacher’s credentials have been suspended for misconduct.
$300,000 The Potential Tab for Special Election in Carlsbad
Barbara Hamilton’s resignation from the Carlsbad City Council now requires the Carlsbad Council to either appoint a replacement or hold a special election to replace her. The city attorney’s office told the council a special election could cost anywhere from $7,500 to $300,000. Mayor Matt Hall said he’s optimistic the council can agree on an appointment and avoid the costs of a special election, as well as the delays.
An appointee would serve in the unexpired term through 2022.
Hamilton, elected last year to represent the city’s newly created District 1, announced earlier this month to the surprise of her council colleagues that she will resign because of family health issues. She offered no further details, except to say it was a difficult decision.
Almost any District 1 resident and registered voter is eligible for the seat. The district covers the city’s northwest quadrant and includes the Village and Barrio neighborhoods.

Beatlemania and the British Beat would eventually spread around the planet.
The Beatles set the world stage on its collective ears and soon other British imports continued to follow in their wake in increasing numbers, completely dominating the American music pop charts as never before: The Dave Clark Five, The Yardbirds, the Zombies, Gerry and the Pacemakers, Chad and Jeremy, and other British powerhouses. Within this constellation of new emerging British rock stars, the Beatles held center court as the most dynamic and the most popular the world had, heretofore, witnessed. On the cusp of immortality, and unprecedented success, they set new, seemingly impossible, standards for their contemporaries. For example, during their second U. S. Tour, they filled New York’s Shea Stadium with an astonishing 55,000 fans on August 15, 1965. It was the first time in human history that such a large outdoor stadium had ever been used for such a purpose. Three thousand miles away, there

Tinkley and Louis Robin, the Fab Four were successfully booked for their only San Diego concert appearance, formally slated for 8 p.m. Saturday, August 28, 1965, at Balboa Stadium.
But, what greatly greased the wheels for promoters Tinkley and Robin’s efforts and helped opened the door for them to succeed in bringing the Beatles to San Diego came from a most unlikely source: Mexico.
A little-known fact was that Beatles manager, Brian Epstein, had planned a Beatles concert in Mexico City, to take place at the Palacio de Los Deportes Stadium (Sports Palace Stadium) – but the plan was nixed by the Mexican government. Mexican officials believed the British rock group to be a bad influence on their youth – most of whom were already rabid Beatles fans. The official reason given by the Mexican government for the cancellation of any Beatles concert plans was on “security” grounds. In reality, Ernesto P. Uruchurtu, Head of the Federal District at the time, refused to grant Epstein’s request, stating to the Beatles manager that the rock ‘n’ roll group were a threat to the values of Mexican youth. According to Mexican writer, Felipe Morales Martinez, Mexico’s Federal District Head, Ernesto P. Uruchurtu, refused the Beatles concert plans for the stated reason: “Being a group of rock (music) at

that time, synonymous with rebelliousness that had the support of the youth, was censored.” (Translated from El Unversal.mx, published Aug. 1, 2000.)
Also, Jose Antonio Martinez, wrote in great detail of the backroom drama which took place back in 1965 and was published (more recently) in Mexico City’s Frente Magazine. The article included an exclusive interview with Paul McCartney in a ‘retrospection piece’ looking back at hidden elements and power-posturing behind the Mexican ban on England’s Fab Four. Writer, Martinez, was also host of a weekly radio program and co-creator of a documentary film titled, “Waiting for Los Bitles” (“Waiting for the Beatles”), which further investigated and uncovered official information not widely known, i.e. why the Beatles were banned in Mexico (stated above). Mexico’s loss was San Diego’s momentous gain.
San Diego was now positioned favorably, and would eventually fulfill an indelible part of Beatles immortality.

Palomar Health Foundation Holds Gala to Support Two Key Departments – The Emergency Department at Palomar Medical Center Poway and the Forensic Health Services to benefit from this event. The Foundation will host a gala event on Saturday, October 26th in support of these two services. The gala will honor local philanthropists Bob & Marion Wilson, who have generously supported Palomar Health and numerous other local non-profits throughout the years. “We are excited that this gala – the foundation’s first in seven years – will celebrate not only Palomar Health’s vital service to the community, but also the wider spirit of giving,” Wayne Herron, Palomar Health Foundation’s Vice President of Philanthropy and Chief Philanthropy Officer, said. “We are delighted to honor the Wilsons, who have contributed so much to this community over the years.” Rabbi Yisroel Goldstein, who was wounded during an April attack on Chabad of Poway, will serve as honorary co-chair. Goldstein was treated for his injuries at Palomar Medical Center Escondido. Also serving as honorary co-chair is James Haven, the Los Angeles-based actor and producer.
All funds raised at the event benefit Palomar Medical Center Poway, which is undergoing millions of dollars in upgrades, including an expanded lobby and registration area, reconfigured physician work areas and improvements to reduce patient wait times. More than 35,000 patients are treated in the hospital’s emergency room each year. The other beneficiary is Forensic Health Services, which provides for the evaluation of abused children and adults. FHS works closely with a team of local investigative, prosecutorial and advocacy agencies to provide crucial forensic services to victims. The forensic nurses and examiners of FHS conduct approximately 60 sexual assault exams, 20 domestic assault exams and 25 child interviews per month. Tickets to the gala are available for purchase at www.palomarhealthfoundation.org/events. The black-tie event takes place at Park Hyatt Aviara Resort in Carlsbad. Reception and silent auction at 6pm; dinner, live auction, dancing and entertainment starting at 7pm. For information or reservations, call 760.739.2787 or visit PH.Foundation@palomarhealth.org.

Supporting Native Americans
The 52nd Native American Day was celebrated September 27, as a time to honor and remember the contributions of California’s tribal nations, to recognize their sovereignty and the tremendous challenges they have long faced, along with their remarkable resilience and achievements.
San Diego County, with 18 reservations, covering over 190 square miles, has more reservations than any other county in the United States – and 8 of these are within the 75th Assembly District. Tribal sovereignty is critically important in that we recognize Tribal Governments as sovereign nations separate from the United States government, with the authority to regulate their own laws and way of life. History has not been easy on our tribal neighbors as each has a vital history to tell.
One of these challenges was addressed in part by the federal Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA), which was enacted in 1978 in response to the wholesale removal of Indian children from their parents, families and tribal communities. The act provided important rights and protections for Indian families, but more needed to be
done. With more ICWA appeals than in any other state, California has struggled to comply and properly implement ICWA.
This session, along with Assemblymember James C. Ramos (D – Highland), I introduced Assembly Bill 686, bi-partisan legislation that increases state compliance with ICWA by updating and clarifying existing law allowing tribes to conduct placement approvals, including home evaluations and background checks. AB 686 will also ensure that Indian tribes can fully participate in ICWA cases by allowing access to telephonic or other computerized or electronic remote access options during court proceedings. AB 686 is supported by a broad coalition of Tribal Governments around the state and other groups, including Juvenile Court Judges of California and the California Tribal Families Coalition. The bill passed both houses unanimously and is now awaiting the Governor’s signature. Assembly Republican Leader Marie Waldron, R-Escondido, represents the 75th Assembly District in the California Legislature, which includes the communities of Bonsall, Escondido, Fallbrook, Hidden Meadows, Pala, Palomar Mountain, Pauma Valley, Rainbow, San Marcos, Temecula, Valley Center and Vista.

It’s been an on-going debate amongst my fellow Board members at SANDAG. Where should we spend our transportation dollars? For those in Downtown San Diego and Chula Vista their main focus was on public transportation. For many of the North and East County leaders, the focus was freeways and highways.
Last Friday, the SANDAG Board came together on a compromise that fits all the transportation needs in San Diego County. Throughout this process, I’ve asked for a balanced plan that addresses the transportation needs for all of San Diego County. Our new plan allocates dollars to new public transit projects, but also includes HOV lanes from the 78 and 52 freeways, as well as expanding Highway 67.
It’s taken much discussion, but we have finally reached a compromise that all of SANDAG’s Board could agree upon. There will be many more debates in the future about allocating the rest of the transportation dollars, but for now I’m excited about San Diego County’s

S.D. Zoo Global Wildlife Conservancy is Saving Rhinos from Extinction – You give them hope! This is a message from Jonnie Capiro, Lead Keeper, Nikita Kahn Rhino Rescue Center at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park.
“I'm watching history in the making. I've been with Victoria, our southern white rhino, since the day she arrived at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park. I was by her side throughout her pregnancy and for the birth of her son, Edward. I'm honored to be the lead keeper for our rhino family at the Nikita Kahn Rhino Rescue Center. It's a safe, one-of-a-kind sanctuary. And it's worlds away from the threats facing wild rhinos. Rhinos are in danger—3 are killed every day. After decades of rampant poaching, extinction haunts these gentle giants. That's why the work we do at the Rhino Rescue Center is more important now than ever. Our world-class teams of keepers, veterinarians, and researchers are developing the cutting-edge science to save these magnificent animals before it's too late. But none of this is possible without your support. Your tax-deductible donation to the Rhino Rescue Center makes lifesaving efforts possible.” “We celebrate our rhino family every day. Each one has a unique, lovable personality and they're playing an essential role in our rhino conservation program. And you are, too! Without the support of friends like you, we wouldn't have been able to make this dream of rescuing rhinos a reality. The 6 female rhinos who came to the Rhino Rescue Center—Victoria, Amani, Nikita, Livia, Wallis, and Helene—represent two days of rhinos that will never be poached. Because you saved them. You can give the next generation of rhinos, like Edward, hope for the future. Make a donation to the Rhino Rescue Center today and help us ensure that their family is here to meet your family for generations to come. Donate with confidence.” San Diego Zoo Global Wildlife Conservancy is an international nonprofit and a registered 501(c)(3) organization. With more than 100 years of world-class animal care and expertise we’re saving wildlife and ending extinction around the globe. We just need you! P.O. Box 120551, San Diego, 92112; 619.557.3914.
THE MEANINGS OF SOME OLD SAYINGS By Tim Lambert
Historically Speaking by Tom Morrow
Below is a list of old sayings and where they came from. However, sometimes it is impossible to say for certain how an old saying originated. Sometimes we can only give the most likely explanation.
In 1792, Burr was admitted to the bar of New York. As an attorney, Burr later entered politics and was twice-elected to the New York state legislature. He was appointed State Attorney General, then he was chosen as a U.S. Senator.
In Greek mythology Thetis dipped her son Achilles in the mythical River Styx. Anyone who was immersed in the river became invulnerable. However, Thetis held Achilles by his heel. Since her hand covered this part of his body the water did not touch it and so it remained vulnerable. Achilles was eventually killed when Paris of Troy fired an arrow at him and it hit his heel. AM I MY BROTHERS KEEPER?
Like many old sayings in the English language this one comes from the Bible. In Genesis, Cain murdered his brother Abel. God asked Cain 'Where is your brother?'. Cain answered 'I don't know. Am I my brother's keeper?'. APPLE OF MY EYE
This phrase also comes from the Bible. In Psalm 17:8 the writer asks God 'keep me as the apple of your eye'. BAKERS DOZEN
The Forgotten Man: Aaron Burr
If asked who the third man to hold the vice presidency of the United States was, few would know it was Aaron Burr who was noted for one historical event – a duel, killing U.S. Secretary of the Treasury Alexander Hamilton.
Hamilton prominently has taken his place in history as founder of what today is the Federal Reserve, the U.S. Mint – as such he gets his picture on the $10 bill. Conversely, Burr’s bio is found in very few history books, primarily because of their 1807 duel. Hamilton remains historically wellknown, especially since a recent Broadway musical “loosely” depicts his character.
A baker's dozen means thirteen. This old saying is said to come from the days when bakers were severely punished for baking underweight loaves. Some added a loaf to a batch of a dozen to be above suspicion. When hunting birds some people would beat about the bush to drive them out into the open. Other people would then catch the birds. 'I won't beat about the bush' came to mean 'I will go straight to the point without any delay'. ON YOUR BEAM ENDS
In the past people believed that bees flew in a straight line to their hive. So if you made a beeline for something you went straight for it. BEYOND THE PALE
Originally a pale was an area under the authority of a certain official. In the 14th and 15th centuries, the English king ruled Dublin and the surrounding area known as the pale. Anyone 'beyond the pale' was seen as savage and dangerous. BIG WIG
In the 18th century when many men wore wigs, the most important men wore the biggest wigs. Hence today important people are called big wigs. BITE THE BULLET
This old saying means to grin and bear a painful situation. It comes from the days before anesthetics. A soldier about to undergo an operation was given a bullet to bite. THE BITER BEING BITTEN
In the 17th century a biter was a con man. 'Talk about the biter being bitten' was originally a phrase about a con man being beaten at his own game.
Social Butterfly Cont. on Page 9
In those days, the office of President was elected by the Senate. While in the Senate Burr ran for President against Thomas Jefferson, but lost by one vote, relegating him to the office of Vice President, where second-place finishers automatically landed. Burr blamed Hamilton for his defeat. The two men were pillars in New York social, political and business circles and had become bitter enemies. During the selection for president, Hamilton rallied several senators to vote against Burr – even a few who were enemies of Hamilton, but they hated Burr even more. Thomas Jefferson, who had his own rivals, was looked upon as “the lesser of two evils.” In business Burr was highly successful. He established the Bank of Manhattan, which continues today as JP MorganChase. Near the same time, Hamilton founded the competing Bank of New York, deepening their political and business rivalry even more.
Ironically, it’s their duel that caused Burr to be banished to historical obscurity. What caused the duel is a matter of conjecture. One of the reasons could be traced to Hamilton’s vicious rumors he spread in various newspaper columns.
BEAT ABOUT THE BUSH

small group of Yankee soldiers in a skirmish with the British. This action repelled the enemy’s advance, forcing the British to retreat.
Burr was a serving officer during the Revolutionary War under another controversial character: Gen. Benedict Arnold during the Quebec, Canada expedition. Burr distinguished himself in that battle earning a place on Gen. George Washington’s command staff. But, after only two weeks, Burr asked for a transfer back to the battlefield.
During the ensuing battle when the British landed on Manhattan, Burr saved an entire brigade from capture, including a young Alexander Hamilton. Evidently miffed because Burr had resigned from his staff, Washington did not commend Burr for his heroic actions on Manhattan. The snub by Washington led to an eventual estrangement between the two men. Nonetheless, Burr distinguished himself with a number of daring and heroic exploits during the Revolutionary War. In 1777, Washington “buried the hatchet” and promoted Burr to lieutenant colonel. He was given command of a regiment. During the harsh winter at Valley Forge, Pennsylvania Burr led a small unit guarding an isolated pass. He and his men drove back an attempted mutiny by troops who tried to escape the miserable Valley Forge winter.
In 1779, Burr had to leave the Army due to bad health, but he remained active when assigned by Washington to perform occasional intelligencegathering missions. During his days as a spy, Burr rallied a group of Yale students in New Haven, Conn., aiding a
During those years as business competitors, Burr was widowed and lived with his daughter and her husband. Hamilton reportedly suggested to a newspaper columnist Burr was committing incest with his own daughter. Enraged, Vice President Burr challenged Treasury Secretary Hamilton to a duel in Weehawken, N.J. Dueling was illegal which caused them to cross the Hudson River. As a result, Hamilton was mortally wounded, dying a day later. Hamilton’s death destroyed Burr’s political and business career and put him into social disgrace. Years later, Burr traveled west to embark upon what was an alleged attempt to form a new country. He was charged with treason by the federal government, but later acquitted. Still, his reputation as a less-than honorable man persists despite his many deeds during the Revolutionary War. Burr spent the remainder of his life in relative obscurity practicing law in New York. He died in 1836. The many achievements of Aaron Burr have been forgotten except for that famous conflict between him and Hamilton. That event is about the only point of history students of today learn about Burr. It is simply referred to as “The Duel” and usually needs no further explanation. Some 30 years ago Aaron Burr’s life was loosely portrayed by author Gore Vidal in his historical novel, “Burr.” I recommend it.

A man was telling his buddy: "You won't believe what happened last night.

Please take any of my jewelry to the Salvation Army or Cash Converters. Then sell my car, take my front door key away, and throw me out of the house. Then disown me and never talk to me again. And don't forget to write me out of your will and leave my share to any charity you choose." "Holy Smokes," replied the friend, "she actually said that?" "Well, she didn't put it quite like that.

The Beatles! Cont. from Page 5
would continue to unfold, in spades, for the city of San Diego. San Diego’s ensuing, and hidden, internal fighting leading to the Beatles concert at Balboa Stadium would lead to one of the most colorful and captivating chapters in Beatlemania history.
Little did anyone know that San Diego would become the battleground of a vicious media war over the rights to promote the Beatles at San Diego’s Balboa Stadium. This tooth-and-nail media in-fighting would prove to be a death-struggle of sorts and yet it would remain, largely, behind the scenes and curtained-off to the general public, and Beatles fans. Much of what happened in this media warfare remains largely unknown, even to this day.
The media combatants at the time involved popular San Diego radio stations KGB and KCBQ. The two rival radio stations viciously competed for the rights to officially promote the San Diego Beatles Concert, which eventually would lead to legal litigation against one another (KGB vs. KCBQ). During the onset, the Beatles’ concert promoters (Allen Tinkley and Louis Robin) had asked both rival radio stations to submit their best proposals with a submission dateline of June 10, 1965. KGB and KCBQ pulled out all the stops in their ensuing competition to win the (official) Beatles air-time rights and the honor of introducing them live, on stage, at San Diego’s Balboa Stadium, truly a most historic musical event for San Diego.
The ensuing “pitches” and various proposal ideas by both KGB and KCBQ made their way to promoters, Louis Robin and Allen Tinkley. Lee Bartell, KCBQ General Manager, created a fictional DJ character by the name of “Lord Tim of Liverpool,” (real name, Tim Hudson), who paraded as a fictional Englishman who claimed to be a personal friend of the Beatles. In addition, KCBQ promised promoters a full seven-week-long promotion in newspapers, Beatles gift give-a-ways, and press conferences. KGB’s Bill Drake upped the ante by offering Beatles’ promoters the moon, stating that KGB would not only offer carte blanche coverage in every conceivable fashion for the upcoming Beatles concert but, in summation, the promoters would, in essence, sit in the owner’s chair at KGB and drive the promotion scheme as they see fit. The offers from both competing radio stations were so enticing that promoters Robin and Tinkley offered a joint sponsorship by both
KGB and KCBQ. The stations, mutually, wanted no part of each other. Rivalry was too, acrimoniously, deeply planted.
Finally, on June 15, KGB Radio (which, incidentally, had higher ratings than KCBQ), was signed to officially promote and sponsor the Beatles San Diego Concert, on August 28, 1965, at Balboa Stadium. Nonetheless, KCBQ hung on with their “Lord Tim of Liverpool” publicity, grabbing radio listeners away from KGB, which was now the official sponsor of the Beatles upcoming concert. The ongoing feud was not about to go away quietly. KCBQ stayed on with their Lord Tim persona, which was stealing the thunder from KGB. And KCBQ’s Lord Tim was gaining momentum in fan popularity. Lord Tim was the full irresistible package: he was young, good looking, spoke in an English accent and, for good measure, sported bell-bottom pants and Beatles haircut. All this drove the Beatles-appointed radio sponsor, KGB, to have kittens. The on-air feud heightened to a climax when KCBQ Radio managed to obtain full permission from the Beatles tour management to allow Lord Tim to travel with the English megastars. This KCBQ major coup against KGB was almost an outright death blow between the competing media, in favor of KCBQ, which now had inner-access to personal interviews with the Beatles, all of which would be aired, exclusively, on KCBQ airwaves. Adding to ticket-sales confusion, KCBQ publicized their own radio station phone number as a source to purchase Beatles concert tickets. This caused confusing information for KGB, the official concert sponsor, and also for radio listeners who wished to purchase tickets. All these proceedings culminated in KGB filing a lawsuit against rival radio station, KCBQ. Despite this behind-the-scenes drama, San Diego’s one-and-only Beatles concert commenced at San Diego’s Balboa Stadium. Contradicting ticket information and bitter in-fighting between two warring radio stations created an element of confusion which hurt public ticket sales in the process. Also, the last-minute addition of San Diego to the Beatles North American Tour Date Schedule gave promoters a shorter period of time to promote the event. San Diego’s only Beatles concert attendance could have proven better without the KGB-KCBQ media drama. Out of 27,041 tickets, only about 17, 013 were sold, leaving an estimated 10,000 empty seats. Tickets were priced at $3.50, $4.50, and $5.50. Some fence-hoppers were successful in seeing the concert free.
Nevertheless, the Beatles were already superstars and miraculously still heading to added, stratospheric heights of fame. (When the Rolling Stones first played San Diego in the latter part of 1964, several months before the Beatles, the Rolling Stones concert was at the much smaller Balboa Park Bowl, and only sold a few hundred tickets at

THE BLIND LEADING THE BLIND
This phrase is from Isaiah 36: 6. When the Assyrians laid siege to Jerusalem one of them stood outside the walls and asked if they hoped for help from Egypt. He described Egypt as a 'broken reed'.
This word is derived from the old word Chapman that meant a merchant or trader. It, in turn, was derived from ceapman. The old word ceap meant to sell.
In Matthew 15:14 Jesus criticized the Pharisees, the religious authorities of his day, saying 'they are blind leaders of the blind'. This means aristocratic. For centuries the Arabs occupied Spain but they were gradually forced out during the Middle Ages. The upper class in Spain had paler skin than most of the population as their ancestors had not inter-married with the Arabs. As they had pale skin the 'blue' blood running through their veins was more visible. (Of course, all blood is red but it sometimes looks blue when running through veins). So blue-blooded came to mean upper class. BOBBIES, PEELERS
Both these nicknames for policemen come from Sir Robert Peel who founded the first modern police force in 1829. TO BOOT
If you get something to boot it means you get it extra. However, it has nothing to do with the boots you wear on your feet. It is a corruption of the old word bot, which meant profit or advantage. BORN WITH A SILVER SPOON IN YOUR MOUTH
Once when a child was christened it was traditional for the godparents to give a sil-
less than $5 each. When the concert started, doors were just opened – for free admission - to hundreds waiting outside, just to fill the venue for the Rolling Stones.)
The Beatles legacy is beyond comparison by any standard. They were the wittiest, the most talented, the most influential, and have sold the most records in history to the point of simply being beyond the reach of mere mortals. In regards to matching their celebrity, one music critic said it best: “How do you hold a candle to the sun?” Even the mighty TIME magazine bowed in their direction, citing them as among the most influential forces – not just in music -- in the twentieth-century. When the Beatles arrived for their only San Diego concert in 1965, they brought along their celebrated wit. The San Diego press conference was turned into a worldwide stage, with great expectations for another rousing session of jocular exchanges as was customary in past Beatles interviews. San Diego and the Beatles did not disappoint.
Over 100 journalists and reporters showed up on August 28, 1965, for a Beatles pre-concert press conference. The four mop-tops stole the show with spontaneous wit and clever retorts. Even other celebrities, such as singing sensation, Joan Baez, dared not miss a Beatles
When pulleys or blocks on a sailing ship were pulled so tightly together that they could not be moved any closer together they were said to be chock-a-block. COALS TO NEWCASTLE
Before railways were invented goods were often transported by water. Coal was transported by ship from Newcastle to London by sea. It was called sea coal. Taking coals to Newcastle was obviously a pointless exercise. COCK A HOOP
This phrase comes from a primitive tap called a spile and shive. A shive was a wooden tube at the bottom of a barrel and a spile was a wooden bung. You removed the shive to let the liquid flow out and replaced it to stop the flow. The spile was sometimes called a cock. If people were extremely happy and wanted to celebrate they took out the cock and put in on the

media event to personally witness the Beatles off-the-cuff humor. Here is a sampling that was picked up by wire services worldwide from the Beatles’ San Diego questionand-answer session and replayed around the world: Reporter: “You’ve admitted to being agnostics. Are you also irreverent as had been said?” John Lennon: “We are agnostics, so there is no point in being irreverent.” Reporter: “Where did you find your sound?” George Harrison: “We don’t find sounds. We make them.”
Reporter: “It has been stated that you are disinterested in politics, that politically you have a certain apathy.” John Lennon: “We’re not disinterested in politics -- it’s just that politicians are disinteresting.” Reporter: “Do you date much?” Ringo Starr: “What are you doing tonight?”
Reporter: “How does your music excite girls so much?” Paul McCartney: “If we knew, we’d form another band and be managers.” It becomes increasingly difficult to comprehend that 54 years have

hoop on the top of the barrel to let the drink flow out freely. So it was cock a hoop. So cock a hoop came to mean ecstatic. COCK AND BULL STORY
This phrase was first recorded in the 17th century. It probably comes from an actual story about a cock and a bull that is now lost. CLOUD CUCKOO LAND
This phrase comes from a play called The Birds by the Greek dramatist Aristophanes (c.448-385 BC). In the play, the birds decide to build a utopian city called Cloud cuckoo land. COPPER
The old word cop meant grab or capture so in the 19th century policemen were called coppers because they grabbed or caught criminals. CROCODILE TEARS
These are an insincere display of grief or sadness. It comes from the old belief that a crocodile wept (insincerely!) if it killed and ate a man. CUT AND RUN
In an emergency rather than haul up an anchor the sailors would cut the anchor cable then run with the wind. WHAT THE DICKENS!
This old saying does not come from the writer Charles Dickens (1812-1870). It is much older than him! It has been around since at least the 16th century. Originally 'Dickens' was another name for the Devil.
In the past a kettle was not necessarily a device to boil water to make a cup of tea. A pot for boiling food (like fish) was also called a kettle. Unfortunately, nobody really knows why we say 'a different kettle of fish'. DON'T LOOK A GIFT HORSE IN THE MOUTH
This old saying means don't examine a gift too closely! You can tell a horses age by looking at its teeth, which is why people 'looked a horse in the mouth'. DOUBTING THOMAS
This phrase comes from John 20: 24-27. After his resurrection, Jesus appeared to his disciples. However one of them, named Thomas, was absent. When the others told him that Jesus was alive Thomas said he would not believe until he saw the marks on Jesus hands and the wound in his side caused by a Roman spear. Jesus appeared again and told Thomas Stop doubting and believe! DOWN AT HEEL
If the heels of your shoes were worn down you had a shabby appearance. DUTCH COURAGE
In the 17th century England and Holland were rivals. They fought wars in 1652-54, 1665-67 and 1672-74. It was said (very unfairly) that the Dutch had to drink alcohol to build up their courage. Other insulting phrases are Dutch treat (meaning you pay for yourself) and Double Dutch meaning gibberish. DYED IN THE WOOL
Wool that was dyed before it was woven kept its color better than wool dyed after weaving of 'dyed in the piece'. EARMARKED
DIFFERENT KETTLE OF FISH
This comes from the days when livestock had their ears marked so their owner could be easily identified. EAT DRINK AND BE MERRY
This old saying is from Ecclesiastes 8:15 'a man has no better thing under the sun than to eat and to drink and be merry'. ESCAPED BY THE SKIN OF YOUR TEETH
This phrase comes from the Bible, from Job 19:20. FEET OF CLAY
If a person we admire has a fatal weakness we say they have feet of clay. This phrase comes from the Bible. King Nebuchadnezzar dreamed of a statue. It had a head of gold, arms, and chest of silver, belly, and thighs of bronze and its legs were of iron. However, its feet were made of a mixture of iron and clay. A rock hit the statue's feet and the whole statue was broken. The prophet Daniel interpreted the dream to be about a series of empires, all of which would eventually be destroyed. (Daniel 2:27-44). FIDDLE WHILE ROME BURNS
There is a legend that when Rome burned in 64 AD Emperor Nero played the lyre (not the fiddle!). Historians are skeptical about the story. FLASH IN THE PAN
Muskets had a priming pan, which was filled with gunpowder. When flint hit steel it ignited the powder in the pan, which in turn ignited the main charge of gunpowder and fired the musket ball. However, sometimes the powder in the pan failed to light the main charge. In that case, you had a flash in the pan.

If a fleet won a clear victory the ships would sail back to port with their colors proudly flying from their masts. FREELANCE
In the Middle Ages freelances were soldiers who fought for anyone who would hire them. They were literally free lances. FROM THE HORSES' MOUTH
You can tell the age of a horse by examining its teeth. A horse dealer may lie to you but you can always find out the truth 'from the horses mouth'. GET THE SACK
This comes from the days when workmen carried their tools in sacks. If your employer gave you the sack it was time to collect your tools and go. GILD THE LILY
This phrase is from King John by William Shakespeare. 'To gild refined gold, to paint the lily is wasteful and ridiculous excess'. GO THE EXTRA MILE
By law a Roman soldier could force anybody to carry his equipment 1 mile. In Matthew 5:41 Jesus told his followers 'if somebody forces you to go 1 mile go 2 miles with him'. GO TO POT

we generally slow down. It is the step before the winter season of life. Is it a good season or do we dread it? I think it is one of the best seasons, because of what autumn means. By way of definition, it is a time of gathering, a season to see what we have gathered.
Poe is a 4-year-old longhaired cat looking for a new home. He is beautiful, sweet and never met a treat he didn’t like! He also enjoys being brushed and petted.

FLY IN THE OINTMENT
Pastor Richard Huls, Retired
Joey Gladstone is pet of the week at your Rancho Coastal Humane Society. He’s a 6 year old, 9 pound, male, Domestic Short Hair cat with a Red and White Tabby Coat.
Ecclesiastes 10:1 the writer says that dead flies give perfume a bad smell (in old versions of the Bible the word for perfume is translated 'ointment').
The one theme I hear almost daily is “how fast time is going.” I wonder if it is a phenomena of our age or whether people of every age experienced the same thing. There is no doubt that days come and go and have done so since recorded history. We have already moved into the autumn season, the third phase of the year. It is really one of best seasons, which we don’t want to miss. The geese are flying South, the pumpkins are ripening, the apples need picking, the squirrels are gathering nuts for the winter, the trees are starting to shed their leaves, and the sky seems brighter and clearer. It is harvest time, a magical time of the year. We human beings often refer to life being in the autumn season, when the hair is turning gray, we need glasses and hearing-aids, we watch our steps to keep from falling, and
Jeremiah, the prophet, puts things in perspective in chapter 8:20 when he says, “Harvest has passed, summer has ended, but we have not been saved.” What does he mean by being saved? There are various ways to look at it. I share a few with you. We can be saved from things such as sickness, tragedy, loss, despair, rejection, and many other terrible problems. It is good to harvest these blessings this month. And we could be saved for some things such as service to others, acts of kindness, sharing, being generous by giving, loving, forgiving, and growing in a strong spiritual life. We can harvest these opportunities this autumn.
Autumn is not a time which is fleeting, but rather a time of fulfillment. Pastor Huls

San Marcos • Mayor Rebecca Jones San Marcos Creek Project Moves Forward
On Sept. 24, the San Marcos City Council voted to approve a notice to award for Sema Construction to serve as the primary construction contractor for the San Marcos Creek Project. This important infrastructure project will benefit our City in the following ways: • Raised roadway and new bridges over the San Marcos creek along Bent Avenue and Via Vera Cruz to reduce flooding and
enhance safety • Widened Discovery Street to four lanes with a bike lane on the south side • Additional sidewalks and bike facilities • New community park with spaces and trails for recreation and relaxation • Restoration and preservation of 1.5 miles of creek habitat Preliminary construction will begin in late 2019. Active construction is tentatively planned to start in early 2020 and is expected to take up to two years to complete. Here’s how to stay informed about the project: • Join us for a community meeting on Oct. 29 from 6-8 p.m. at the San Marcos Community Center • Visit www.san-marcos.net/creek • Text SMCreek to 484848 to sign up for text updates• Call the project hotline: 877-SMCREEK• Email firstname.lastname@example.org
Escondido • Mayor Paul “Mac” Mcnamara Greetings Escondido,
Housing Continued- not everyone will be happy.
So, if you’ve been following the past few weeks, I hope you can now see that housing is one of those community challenges that has no good answer. Whatever decision is made, it will have an impact and somebody probably won’t like it. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be engaged. This is “our” community and so its future rests in our hands. I would encourage you to follow what is going on and most importantly give your elected leaders your feedback. It really does help. I would like to end this week not on a challenge. Rather, I want to share with you that I’ve been talking with a number of groups this week who have been doing some wonderful things. When people ask me what it is like to be Mayor, I often say, I feel like all I had to do was open the barn door. We have so many volunteers doing so many things to improve the city I’m constantly awed by it. Finally, I attended the city employee anniversary breakfast. It’s where they receive recognition for years of service. We are fortunate to have so many city employees who are so well qualified and who really care about our city. Semper Fi, Mac, Paul P.

Any farm animal that had outlived its usefulness such as a hen that no longer laid eggs would literally go to pot. It was cooked and eaten. GOLLY, GOSH
In the past it wasn't polite to use the exclamation 'God!' Instead people said Golly! or Gosh! Sometimes they said 'heck' instead of Hell. GOODBYE
This is a contraction of the words God be with ye (you). HAT TRICK
This comes from cricket. Once a bowler who took three wickets in successive deliveries was given a new hat by his club.
HIDING YOUR LIGHT UNDER A BUSHEL A bushel was a container for measuring grain. In Matthew 15:15 Jesus said 'Neither do men light a candle and put it under a bushel but on a candlestick'. HOBSONS CHOICE
This means to have no choice at all. In the 16th century and the early 17th century if
you went on a journey you could hire a horse to take you from one town to another and travel using a relay of horses. (That was better than wearing out your own horse on a long journey over very poor roads). In the early 1600s, Thomas Hobson was a man in Cambridge who hired out horses. However, he would not let customers choose which horse they wanted to ride. Instead, they had to ride whichever horse was nearest the stable entrance. So if you hired a horse from him you were given 'Hobson's choice'. HOIST BY YOUR OWN PETARD
A petard was a type of Tudor bomb. It was a container of gunpowder with a fuse, which was placed against a wooden gate. Sometimes all things did not go to plan and the petard exploded prematurely blowing you into the air. You were hoisted by your own petard. HOLIER THAN THOU
This comes from the Bible, Isaiah 65:5, the Old Testament prophet berates people who say 'stand by thyself, come not near me for I am holier than thou'.

Orfila Vineyards & Winery is an ultra-premium winery that has been making wine for 26 years, and operates out of two locations. The 70 acre ranch in the San Pasqual Valley in Escondido, and the urban style tasting room just a couple blocks from the beach in Oceanside.
Orfila has 10 varietals of grapes that grow on the property and are harvested annually. Winemaker Justin Mund also purchases grapes from locations such as San Luis Obispo, Sonoma, and Santa Barbara Counties to keep up with the Orfila brand demand. All wines are made onsite in Escondido, and both locations serve the available wine list boasting around 17-22 wines. The Oceanside location has a kitchen with a menu of delicious locally sourced foods to pair with your wine, and the vineyard in Escondido hosts food trucks on the weekends. Both locations have live music from local artists Friday through Sunday! For more details on music, food, and events please check our calendar on the website or social media.

passed since the Beatles performed at San Diego’s Balboa Stadium. It was true history-in-the-making. Music critic, Richie Unterberger, wrote in All Music that the Beatles are: “The greatest and most influential act of the rock era, and introduced more innovations into popular music than any other rock band of the 20th century.”
In Rolling Stone Magazine’s “Encyclopedia of Rock & Roll,” the editors defined the Beatles’ influence thusly: “The impact of the Beatles – not only on rock & roll but on all of Western culture – is simply incalculable. Smart, idealistic, playful, irreverent, eclectic. They proved that rock & roll could embrace a limitless variety of harmonies, structures, and sounds.” In the end, the Beatles meant different things to different people. Brian Wilson of the immortal Beach Boys band said, “There’s no outdoing the Beatles.” Comedy legend, Jerry Seinfeld, opined, “The Beatles created something that never trailed off. What a gift that was to their fans. If you’re into The Beatles, you loved them from beginning to end.”
Even the towering genius of Steve Jobs was impacted by them; he enjoyed their music as well as their commitment to each other, though at times, it was turbulent: “My model for business is the Beatles: they were four guys that kept each other’s negative tendencies in check; they balanced each other. And the total was greater than the sum of the parts.”
There is something haunting and lingering that John Lennon said before he died. Something universal and beautiful that travels a deep route into the inner recesses of the human soul: “A dream you dream alone is only a dream. A dream you dream together is reality.” For many Beatles fans, dreaming together as Lennon noted, brings souls closer together in common harmony. Just ask Beatles fan, Robyn Hitchcock, who says: “So, whenever I hear the Beatles, I always feel I’ve got a lot in common with everybody else.” Now, that’s real magic.
One by one they are leaving us to ourselves. First John left us in 1980. Then George went too, in 2001. Only two remain now, Paul

and Ringo. But to the end, they will never relinquish their unconquerable humor and resilient wit. As Paul said regarding rumors of his own death: “I am alive and well and unconcerned about the rumors of my death. But if I were dead, I would be the last to know.” Yes, only two members of the Beatles remain. When they, also, leave us – we will be left only with their music legacy, and memories of sweet yesterdays. And to rejoice that we once had them in our midst.

Readers may recall that exactly one year ago we announced we were closing The Computer Factory. Our youngest daughter had lost a three year battle with cancer. Through her illness and the depression following her death, we neglected our business. We opened our doors every day but the joy was gone, we went through the motions but life seemed cold and dark. It was you, our friends and customers that brought us back to life, and for that we owe you our gratitude. We will never forget our wonderful daughter but we are back doing what we do best and enjoying our life and business once more.

She brought it to us for a “free” second opinion. We gave it at a quick scan, there were no viruses and the PC was functioning normally. The problem was that the “low end” PC she purchased for under $400 had a very slow processor (CPU). Its speed (980 Passmark Benchmark) would have been normal in a fifteen year old PC.

A middle-aged woman had a heart attack and was taken to the hospital. While on the operating table she had a near death experience.
Seeing God she asked "Is my time up?" God said, "No, you have another 40 years, 2 months and 8 days to live."
Upon recovery, the woman decided to stay in the hospital and have a facelift, liposuction, and a tummy tuck. She even had someone come in and change her hair
color. Since she had so much more time to live, she figured she might as well make the most of it. After her last operation, she was released from the hospital. While crossing the street on her way home, she was killed by an ambulance.
Arriving in front of God (again), she demanded, "I thought you said I had another 40 years. Why didn't you pull me from out of the path of the ambulance?" God replied, "Sorry about that, I just didn't recognize you!" FICTITIOUS BUSINESS NAME STATEMENT #2019-9023013 The
