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

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

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

iarity of a young naval aviator, not an old man suffering from Hodgkin’s disease. Our crewman offered to show the old gent around and point out objects of interest in the plan, a courtesy we perform for all visitors, but one of the man’s sons tugged at his sleeve. “Dad knows his way around in here. Can we talk outside for a moment?” Our crewman was somewhat bewildered, but he was beginning to realize that something out of the ordinary was going on. He’d seen that eerie look in the old fellow’s eyes and it was plain that these other two guys wanted to explain his behavior. He hopped out of the hatch and listened to them. They told our man about their dad’s crushing depression upon learning of his incurable disease, how they had hoped to just cheer him up a little, and how overjoyed he was to see that a bunch of characters from Indiana were actually flying around the country in a plane that he thought no longer existed.
Our man knew there was more to it than that. There was a lot of happiness and relief in these men, too. Their mission was accomplished: against all odds, they’d broken the black spell on their father. While the old aviator was still merrily poking about in our plane, a couple more of our crew strolled up munching on hamburgers. “What’s up? Anything going on?” “Yeah. Wait’ll you hear this…”

Airborne approximately thirty minutes on an outbound evening flight from Dublin, the lead flight attendant for the Aer Lingus cabin crew nervously made the following painful announcement…
"Ladies and gentlemen, I'm so very sorry, but it appears that there has been a terrible mix-up, just minutes prior to takeoff, by our airport catering service. I don't know how this has happened, but we have 103 passengers on board and, unfortunately, only 40 dinner meals were delivered to the plane. I truly apologize for this mistake and inconvenience."
When passengers' muttering had
Within minutes, two of our crewmen set out to round up the rest of the gang. The old man was still climbing in and out of the plane, kicking the landing gear and inspecting the bomb bay, when they all arrived. Our whole “away team” shook his hand and took pictures of him and his boys. The old fellow’s joy was infectious, and our guys were glad to be a part of it. Then someone in the crew cam up with a brilliant idea. It was whispered from man to man and a hasty conference was held under the huge wing. Heads nodded all around. Yeah. It was agreed. They had to do this… We were scheduled to make a flight the next day for “Aviation Classics” magazine. They wanted some pictures of our rare Harpoon doing its stuff. A photographer had been sent, a swift chase plane had been reserved, and takeoff was set for the following morning. As is always the case, every seat available was already spoken for. Despite its size, and not counting the pilots and flight engineer, there are only five seats aboard our plane. She was designed as a combat aircraft, not a passenger plane. Even among the members of our organization, a flight is a rare treat. To be honest about the matter, at a fuel consumption rate of nearly two hundred gallons an hour we can’t afford much joyriding. At air shows, our fuel and other expenses are paid for by the promoters of the show so every time we lift off five lucky people get to take a “free” ride. These seats are always reserved well in advance, usu-
died down, she continued…
"Anyone who would be kind enough to give up their meal so that someone else can eat will receive free, unlimited drinks for the duration of our 5-hour flight." Her next announcement came 90 minutes later...
"If anyone would like to change their minds, we still have 40 dinners available." Investment advice: seems logical to me.......
If you had purchased $1,000 of shares in Delta Airlines 5 years ago, you would have $49.00 today
If you had purchased $1,000 of shares in AIG 5 years ago, you would have $33.00 today. If you had purchased $1,000 of shares in Lehman Brothers 5 years ago, you would have $0.00 today.
But, if you had purchased $1,000 worth of beer one year ago, drank all the beer, then turned in the aluminum cans for the recycling refund, you would have received $214.00. Based on the above, the best current investment plan is to drink heavily and recycle. It is called the 401- Keg. And as a bonus...

ally for our own people who’ve spend countless hours of hard work and a lot of their own money to “keep ‘em flying.” It’s a privilege we all look forward to every summer. Our crew looked at the ancient Navy pilot standing beside the Harpoon. He constantly touched the aircraft as if to assure himself that it was really there and not just a dream. There was a haunted look about him, as if he were surrounded by the ghosts of his former comrades. He had survived the Zeros, but there would be no escape from the disease that now had a grip on him. The old veteran was fighting his last battle even as they watched…
“He can have my seat,” one of our guys said softly. “Naw. You haven’t gone up for a while. Let him take mine.” Soon there was a near fight among all five over who would give up their seat. It was a point of honor. Besides, people who fly and maintain old warbirds are slightly crazy anyway.
The argument was settled and, beaming delightedly, the whole crew marched over to the man and his sons. They told him about the photo run that was scheduled for the next day and that we just, ahh, happened to have a spare seat available. Would he like to ride along on the flight?

A woman runs a red traffic light and crashes into a man's car. Both of their cars are demolished, but amazingly, neither of them is hurt. After they crawl out of their cars, the woman says; "Wow, just look at our cars!
There's nothing left, but fortunately we are unhurt. This must be a sign from God that we should meet and be friends and live together in peace for the rest of our days." The man replies, "I agree with you completely. This must be a sign from God!"
The woman continues, "And look at this, here's another miracle. My car is completely demolished, but my bottle of wine didn't break. Surely God wants us to drink this wine and celebrate our good fortune." She then hands the bottle to the man. The man nods his head in agreement, opens it, drinks half the bottle and then hands it back to the woman. The woman takes the bottle, immediately puts the cap

The question stunned him. “Are you serious?” He looked from man to man, and their faces answered for them. They were all grinning like idiots and nodding their heads in encouragement.
The aged Harpoon pilot blinked a few times and cleared his throat. Then, with his sons standing beside him, he lifted his chin and answered. “Yes,” he said. “I’d love to go. Thanks…thank you very much.”
His sons didn’t comment on our crew’s invitation. For some reason they were suddenly having trouble with their voices. But the way they looked at our people spoke volumes on the subject of heartfelt gratitude. The men from Massachusetts stood with the men from Indiana on an airfield in New York state, and the axiom of a brotherhood among airmen demonstrated its truth once more. The old aviator arrived at dawn the next day. Only a couple of our people were up and at the aircraft at that time, groggily sipping coffee and still yawning. One of our guys commented that the veteran pilot looked surprisingly wide awake for that early hour. He replied that most of his combat missions had begun at dawn or even earlier. Besides, he admitted sheepishly, he had been unable to sleep the whole night. “I felt like a kid waiting for Christmas morning,” he grinned. Someone reached into a tool box and produced a thermos of coffee. The old fellow accepted a cup and sat a package down on the work bench. “I thought some of you might be interested in this.” He carefully unwrapped a tattered and patched photo album. “My boys talked me into bringing it from home when we came up here. I’m glad I have it with me now.” He opened the cover.
Our crewmen took one glance inside and snapped completely awake, nearly choking on their coffee. They stared at the book, then at each other.
The album was a gold mine. The then-young Navy pilot had taken dozens of black and white photos of his aircraft, both inside and out. Equally important, he’d taken many close-ups of the mechanics at work on his forward island bases. We had only been able to guess at where some of the equipment was mounted in the interior of our plane, and how some of the field-expedient repairs had been accomplished under combat conditions. This book could allow us to rebuild and refurbish our plane to her exact wartime appearance, the goal of all military aircraft restorers. We have a thick manual for the bird, but it’s no longer possible to do everything “by the book.” Lockheed hasn’t made parts for this aircraft for over fifty years. We knew that Navy and Marine mechanics had accomplished wonders with baling wire, tin cans, and friction tape: the big ques-
tion was how? Which backyard repairs could we get away with and which ones could cause a crash? What do you do when a control cable snaps at 12,000 feet or the port engine starts blowing oil or the landing gear jams halfway down?
Our crewmen suddenly realized that the fellow sipping coffee and looking calmly back at them was not merely an old man suffering from Hodgkin’s disease. He was also a retired United States Navy officer, a combat experienced aviator, and a governmenttrained expert on Lockheed PV-2 Harpoons. A few hours earlier, they felt as if he needed them. Now it dawned on our crew that they needed him—badly—and the knowledge he had carried for nearly half a century. “Sir, when the rest of our people get here, would you consider giving us a, uhh, briefing?”
He sat his cup down and smiled. “Be glad to.”
Later that morning they were assembled around the elderly pilot, hanging on his every word. His constant touching and staring at the aircraft had not been the ghostly reminiscences of days gone by, but a careful and professional examination. Instinctively, he’d been giving our Harpoon a pre-flight inspection. He’d been quietly “grading” us on our reconditioning, maintenance, and craftsmanship. He’d noted where we had done well—and where there was need for improvement. Our crew jotted don page after page of memos on everything from how the navigator’s table folded up to which hydraulic lines to inspect frequently. To no one’s surprise, he said that some portions of the manual were nonsense, then went on to tell us how to do things the right way.
He gave our pilots detailed information on how to crash-land the plane in the event of total power failure. Harpoons are not noted for crash survivability, something we all keep in the back of our minds. His crew in the Pacific had been lucky to have him at the controls. He ran out of fuel once and had to belly in on a beach. The plane was a total loss, but the young Navy flyer saved his crew. Someday—God forbid—we may have to try it ourselves.
The veteran continued on for some time without any apparent fatigue or effects from his illness. Presently a civilian aircraft noisily taxied up to the Harpoon and braked to a halt. Two men clambered out of the plane, the photographer and his pilot. They exchanged information with our pilots on how the photo flight was to be handled, shook hands, and hopped back in their plane. The Cessna turned and began to taxi back out to the runway. Flight line workers began to circle the Harpoon, warning spectators away from our bomber and clearing a path for it to roll out from the parking area. Our pilots and engineer climbed up into the cockpit and began their pre-flight checklist. Two of our people, one at each engine, stood guard outside with fire extinguishers while four more eagerly entered the plane.
For the first and only time in their lives, the old man’s sons watched him climb into a PV-2 Harpoon. Just inside the hatch, he turned and looked at his boys for a long moment. Something seemed to pass between them for an instant, then he gave them a “thumbs up” and shut the door. He never thought that he’d see another of “his” planes and certainly never dreamed he’d fly in one again, if even only as a passenger, but fate had reserved him one more takeoff, just one more time. The last flight was under way
Our pilot shouted out his window. “Clear!” The ground crewmen stood by with the fire extinguishers, just in case. The number one starter motor engaged the flywheel, causing that eerie high-pitched whine that quickens the blood of anyone who ever heard it. Then the pistons fired, coughed, and fired again, blowing out rapid puffs of smoke as the Hamilton-Standard prop began to spin. The engine smoothed and revved to a high idle, pounding out a sound like nearby thunder. Number two engine whined, backfired, and blew out a great cloud of white smoke. Its prop remained motionless. Doubtless cursing under his breath, the pilot initiated a restart while the ground crew eyed the engine suspiciously, extinguishers at the ready. The flywheel built up speed again, the switch was thrown, and this time the mighty Pratt & Whitney radial roared into life, fairly bellowing strength and defiance. The whole aircraft shook visibly as the great 2,000 horsepower engines warmed up. The brakes strained to hold the ship in place while the preflight was completed, then they were gradually released and the bomber started to roll. As always, she gained speed rapidly. Halfway down the strip, the barndoor sized tail lifted and the plane seemed to balance on her main gear. Then, with the awesome sound of a warbird—the Sound of Freedom— the Harpoon thundered into the sky.
They circled the field once, gaining altitude. The chase plane fell into formation with them, the photographer taking advantage of a beautiful cloudless day. The Harpoon banked gracefully, easing back over the airfield. Together the two aircraft made repeated passes giving the cameraman every shot he could wish for. When the photo run was over, both planes slowed and dropped into a landing glide path, flaps and gear down. The smaller plane led the way, touching down well ahead of the big blue Navy patrol bomber. It was the moment our crew had been waiting for. The airspace was now clear.
The Harpoon’s gear went back up and the engines throttled forward. She picked up speed, streaked over the runway at a breathtaking fifteen feet, and rocketed back up in a tight climbing turn.
One of our ground crew grinned at the old pilot’s sons. “I think your dad is in for a little treat.” The Harpoon was now going in excess of two hundred fifty knots. The bomber stood on one wing, whirled around in a highstress turn, and dove like a falcon— straight towards the field. Her engines were audible for miles, and the vast crowd of spectators looked up as one. “What the hell are they up to?” Hot dogs and soft drinks were dropped by the score as people snatched for their cameras. The plane shrieked over the flight line, a blue streak above the Mustangs and the Liberators and that thrice-damned Zero. In the wink of an eye they blew past the throng of spectators as babies cried, women covered their ears, and children howled with delight. The slipstream sent hats, programs, and paper cups flying in every direction. The plane rocked back on its tail and flew into the sun. The crowd squinted and tried to follow it. Eventually even the sound of the engines grew faint. The plane was gone—but to where? A few minutes passed, then someone shouted, “There! To the north!” They’d gone for altitude, and were now diving back in again. But this time something was different. The plan was flying strangely. A teenager asked his father, “Are they in trouble?”
The Harpoon was dodging rapidly left and right and flinging itself up and down in the dive. Experienced combat pilots—and there are many at air shows—knew at first glance what the Navy bomber was doing. “Jinking” is how pilots are trained to avoid ground fire in combat. The plane was coming in under evasive action and gaining speed at an alarming rate. Two hundred sixty knots, two seventy, two ninety…Then the aircraft straightened and flew with determined precision, seeming to aim itself at a point just opposite from the crowd on the other side of the runway. The bomb bay doors snapped open and half dozen dark oblong shapes spilled out.
Spectators gasped as the objects tumbled and fell, whistling loudly as they came. The missiles hit the field and exploded into a spectacular red and green spray. The crowd sent up a mighty cheer as they realized what they’d seen, and the sons of our passenger laughed and cheered loudest of all. Gennessee, New York had just been bombed by a planeload of Indiana watermelons. After pulling up from its surprise “bomb run,” the Harpoon slowed to cruise speed, circled, and came back for a final pass before landing. She swooped in low and slow, one wing tipped in salute to the crowd while cameras clicked and video recorders whirred. Then the great flaps lowered, the gear came down, and the tires screeched on contact with the

The Paper • Page 4 • October 08, 2015 Serious Injury Accident, Bicyclist versus Car, Escondido
On T’uesday, September 29, at about 6:49 pm, officers from the Escondido Police Department were dispatched to the area of Washington Ave and Broadway regarding a serious injury collision involving a vehicle and a bicyclist.
Upon arrival, officers found a male and his bicycle lying in the northbound lanes of Broadway and a white GMC pickup was stopped on the east side of Broadway north of Washington Ave. The male sustained significant injuries and Escondido Fire transported him to Palomar Hospital for treatment. According to driver and witness statements, and physical evidence at the scene, it appears the 16 year old bicyclist was riding east on Washington Ave and crossed Broadway against a red light. The driver of the white truck, 42 year old Amy Leichtfuss of Wildomar, had a green for northbound Broadway and struck the bicyclist as he rode in front of her.
Leichtfuss has a valid driver’s license and alcohol does not appear to be a contributing factor at this time. The traffic investigation is ongoing and is being conducted by Officer Thomas Venable of the Traffic Division. Anyone with information on this case is encouraged to call Officer Venable at 760.839-4483.
Five Men Arrested During Undercover Prostitution Operation - Escondido
On Friday, September 25th, the Escondido Police Department conducted an undercover prostitution operation targeting individuals soliciting women for the purpose of prostitution. The operation was located in the center portion of the City of Escondido.
The John Corner
30 year old Sergio Martinez
71 year old Cliford Helbock
40 year old Jose Sotelo-Sotelo
42 year old Alberto Ibanez
As a result of this enforcement effort, five m e n approached the undercover personnel and 49 year old Joel Taylor made arrangements to trade money for sex acts. These men went to an agreed restaurant as quick as you can. We’ve got a flooding problem.”
All hands reported promptly and got to work with heavy duty vaccums that sucks up the water and dumps it into a reservoir. The water had begun to creep into the dining area and the race was on to get the restaurant ship-shape before the public arrived at 6am, expecting breakfast. And they pulled it off!
Man About Town
The soft, easy life of a restaurauteur. Ah, yes, the restaurateur just makes up a menu and price list, orders food, has the food prepared, greets guests, serves food, collects payment, and life rolls merrily along. Not always.
Charlie Mitich, owner of Charlie’s Restuarant got a 3am phone call from an early morning supplier, telling him that his restaurant was flooded. About two inches of water was on the kitchen floor and storage area and was inching into the main dining area. The drains were working but could not keep up with the flow of the water leak and the flood was spreading to the dining area.
Charlie got on the phone to his son, Stony, and son-in-law, Bill Meleka, and said, “get down to the
The entire restaurant, kitchen, storage areas, and dining area was all vaccumed up and beginning to dry up, well before the opening time.
The problem? A water hose from a Coke machine had come loose and the pipe was spewing out water rapidly. (Charlie had told the supplier who had called him where to find the cut off water switch and how to turn it off). A new hose was installed, the Coke machine worked fine, no more leaks (the first time this had happened in 24 years). Chances are other restaurateurs have similar nightmare stories to tell about unexpected (and unwanted) surprises that happened to them. To me, it was impressive how quickly Charlie was able to marshal the necessary people to solve the problem and to get everything ready for a normal day’s business. That only comes from experience and a well trained and loyal staff.
location where they were contacted and arrested by uniformed law enforcement officers for the violation of California Penal Code section 647(b) (soliciting or agreeing to participate in any act of prostitution); a misdemeanor violation. The photographs and biographical information for the arrestees is attached to the end of this document.
Prostitution is not a victimless crime. This illicit activity, like many others, has evolved and now mostly includes young women who are coerced, or otherwise compelled, to participate in the activity. Many of the young women are forced to use highly addictive drugs, suffer physical beatings, and are often gang-raped as their initiation into this modern form of slavelabor. Much of this activity occurs at the direction of criminal gangs or organized crime. These criminal groups see women as a reusable commodity that generates substantial income and requires little to no risk for the true suspects who ultimately profit from the activity. The Escondido Police Department is increasing enforcement efforts focusing on a variety of crimes which are encompassed in human trafficking, and all persons contacted and arrested for violations of state law will be prosecuted to the fullest extent available under the laws applicable.
Letters to the Editor
I am a regular and happy reader of "THE PAPER." I noticed something in the Letter to the Editor column today that I want to comment on: Page 7 there is a limerick, "As you make way through life, brother etc" This was credited to Henry Wadsworth Shortfellow. This may be true depending on the date it was penned. However, I first saw the limeric (or close to it as I write, back in New York City in 1939 when my family was going to the 1939 Worlds Fair. It occurred in a "Mayflower Donut Shop" which was decorated with panels on the walls illustrating "SIMPLE SIMON MEETING

Next time I fret about the worries we have in putting a newspaper out on time . . I’ll think of Charlie and the type of problem he had to deal with . . . makes any problem I have small by comparison. ••••• Kudos to the Escondido Police Department for the undercover sting operation they completed to help shut down prostitution activities in their city.
Dan is one of those guys who wants to retire but just can’t quite do it. He enjoys his work too much. Always has to stay busy and he’s so good at what he does that his clients want him to handle their insurance needs.
Chief Carter knew then, and now, that a little publicity with photos of the ‘working girls’ and their “johns” and Poof! The prostitutes move on to some other city and the johns may or may not follow them. In this case the “working girls” were actually undercover operatives for the Escondido Police Department.
The man knows what he’s doing and he’s trained his daughter, Corina Guillen, in the fine art of interpreting insurance policies and premiums and finding the ones that fit their clientele best.
You can read the details in the local news above, on this page, together with a feature “The John Corner” which we have run before, back when present Chief of Police Craig Carter was in charge of the vice detail.
Good work by the Escondido Police Department. ••••• Just talked to old pal Dan Anaya (recently featured as our Mystery Guest on the Mighty MoJo Page. Didn’t take long for readers to identify him. Dan has been around for ages and people spotted him right away. You may want to go to page 14 and see if you can guess this week’s Mystery Guest.)
Now, with the new Senior Medicare Open Enrollment Period opening up Dan figures to be busier than ever. He worked wonders for his clients during the recent Obamacare sign up period . . . I know of several clients personally that he managed to get their monthly premiums down to ridiculously low costs.
Dan, Corina, and the staff at Health Advocates Insurance in San Marcos enjoy what they do and they do it well. No wonder Dan can’t seem to retire. (He’s been telling me he’s gonna retire for the past 15 years.)
The fall season is here, that means football, and Open Enrollment periods for Senor Medicare Plans, among other fall activities. Enjoy your football games and give Dan a call on the Medicare. Chance are, he won’t be watching football anyway.

HOW DO COURT RECORDERS KEEP STRAIGHT FACES?

A PIEMAN." The panels were about 2ft X 3ft about 8 ft high on the wall for good visibility. The center piece contained that limerick which I have quoted to 2 1/2 generations of engineers. The center piece was illustrated with a little male character, presumably Simple Simon, and two donuts; one large diameter about the height of the character but of small cross-section (say an inch) the other donut was about 2 ft in dianeter and a very small donut hole. The limerick (as I've been quoting these last 65 years was this: As you wander on through life, Brother Whatever be your goal Keep your eye upon the donut, Brother and not upon the hole. If memory holds, there were two Mayflower Donut Shops on Time Square or maybe one at the Fair and the other at Times Square. The Fair you may recall had the symbol of the Perisphere and the Sphere located where JFK was (formerly Idlewild.) You can take most of this to the

Calvin Christian School Breaks Ground on New Building
On September 25, Calvin Christian School broke ground for their new facility. The Heritage Center Chapel and Auditorium will complete the physical master plan. The celebration was complete with Calvin students, preschool through 12th grade, teachers, parents, grandparents, and community members in attendance. It has been a long time dream for Calvin Christian School to have an auditorium. This new facility will seat up to 600 people and the Heritage Center will be completed with-

tarmac. The bomber taxied to the parking apron, turned, and rolled slowly to her assigned area.
Flight line workers held back the crowds who surged in around her, waving, applauding, and holding children on the shoulders. The old aviator’s sons stood with our ground crew, shielding their eyes from a final wind blast as the port brake was locked, the starboard engine revved, and the plan ground-looped perfectly into exactly the same spot she had left. The engines were cut, number two giving its characteristic double backfire, and the props clattered to a halt. The elevator surfaces on the huge tail lowered and thumped softly down to their rest positions. The flight was over, the bomber now silent.
Our crew formed a semicircle around the hatch, the veteran’s sons standing expectantly in the front. For a long moment the hatch remained closed. Then the handle rotated, the door swung slowly open, and a figure appeared at the top of the access ladder. The sons looked up solemnly, as if seeing their father for the first time, He paused there, returning their gaze. Then the emotion became too great for even him to control, and his loving, joyous smile became framed by streams of tears that rolled down both cheeks. He hopped down the short ladder and into the arms of his boys. Our crew sur-

Students form outline of the new Calvin Christian Building in a year, hopefully in time to host the 2016 Christmas concert. The entire cost of the building, $4.7 million, was raised from generous donors from the school and local community. The first donation was given 8 years ago by the Class of 2007 as their senior class gift to the school. With the new building, the school will have a venue especially for concerts, plays, art shows, and chapels. The Heritage Center will be located on the Junior High and High School campus, which will provide easy access for chapels and fine arts rehearsals from the school buildings. Calvin is located at 2000 North Broadway, Escondido. Meetings/Events Calendar

rounded them as they gripped each other, laughing and weeping, in an impassioned, back slapping, threeway hug. The scene was best described to this writer by one of our female crew members.
“Oh, you should have seen it! These macho guys of ours in the plane came out and they were all crying. They were embarrassed by it, but they had to keep wiping their eyes. The old man was the happiest person I’ve ever seen in my life. He kept on laughing and crying at the same time and asking his boys if they saw the bomb run. They were nodding and hugging him. The ground crew was sniffing and snorting and looking at everything except each other. I finally gave up myself and said ‘What the hell?’ So I started crying too.”
The aviator told everyone within earshot how happy he was to have been with us, even if only for a short while. Another of our ladies appeared at his side and asked if he would like to join our organization. Before she could even finish the question he exclaimed, “Yes!” She pulled an application out from behind her back and, grinning, handed the old fellow a pen. He quickly read the document and signed it on the offered back of our flight engineer. After handing the paper back, he reached inside jacket. “I have my checkbook with me. I can pay my first annual dues right now and…”

Research Animals Might Get another Chance
Most of us love Beagles. Their eager-to-please, calm personalities make them the perfect pet. This trait also makes them perfect for research purposes. But what happens after these animals are no longer needed for research?
As a dog owner and animal lover, I am interested in protecting animals that have been used for research in our colleges and universities. Currently, there are no federal or state guidelines pertaining to post-research adoption policies for animals used in scientific or medical research. Obviously, once they are no longer needed for this purpose, these dogs and cats should be released for adoption whenever possible. To help accomplish this, I have joined Assemblymember Matt Dababneh (D – Encino), as the principal co-author of Assembly Bill 147, sponsored by the Beagle Freedom Project. It requires any postsecondary educational institution that uses dogs or cats for research to offer the animals to adoption

or rescue organizations if it is determined they are suitable for adoption. While many colleges and universities already have internal adoption programs, this measure will create a statewide standard to supplement those policies. I am pleased to report that AB 147 received final legislative approval on August 27. The bill has been forwarded to Governor Brown and awaits his signature. If you would like to contact the Governor to request he sign AB 147, please give his office a call at (916) 445-2841 or send him a fax at (916) 5583160. You may also email Governor Brown through his website at https://govnews.ca.gov/gov39m ail/mail.php Hopefully, by taking this small step we can ensure that research animals in California have a chance at a full, happy life with a loving human family.

Cave Couts: North County’s Anglo Pioneer
Cave Johnson Couts was one of the first white men to settle in North County. His Rancho Guajome lies in Vista along N. Santa Fe Ave., near the Oceanside city limits and today is a County Historical Museum & Park.
Couts was born in November 1821, near Springfield, Tennessee. His uncle, Cave Johnson, was U.S. Postmaster General under President James Polk. Uncle Cave had his name-sake appointed to the Military Academy at West

There was a cry of outrage and our “recruiting officer” steadfastly refused to take a cent. She looked around threateningly at the rest of the team and called for a forum. By immediate and unanimous voice vote, the veteran was made a life member of our crew on the spot, all dues waived forever. Addresses and phone numbers were exchanged. The retired naval officer was told that he could expect our first organizational newsletter within a week and that we’d stay in touch by mail, keeping him abreast of developments with the plane. He replied that he had many photographs and notes pertaining to PV-2 Harpoons that he’d send us, as well as personal observations and letters answering any questions we might have in the future.
After some time, they had to leave for the long drive back to Massachusetts. Our men shook his firm hand for the last time, our wives and girlfriends each gave him a kiss, and it was time to leave. One of the sons kept repeating to our crew, “You don’t know. You don’t know what this has done for Dad. This has brought him back. He’s his old self again. You just don’t know…” Well, maybe we don’t. But we have a pretty good idea. We know what he did for us.
Whatever else life may have in store for him the veteran will always know that one of his planes is still flying, crewed by a new generation. And we will know that we have a friend, our senior member, who we can turn to when the skies grow dark and we
Point, where he graduated in 1843, near the bottom of his class. He served on the Western frontier as both a dragoon officer until after the Mexican War at Los Angeles, Mission San Luis Rey, and Old Town San Diego from 1848 to 1851.
In 1849, Couts conducted the Whipple expedition to the Colorado River. He was a qualified surveyor -- he documented and mapped California and Arizona’s southern boundaries with Mexico as outlined in the Guadalupe Hidalgo Treaty. It ceded large portions of Mexico to the U.S. as part of the settlement ending the Mexican War with the U.S. (Couts’ transit he used on that expedition is or was in the County’s Rancho Guajome Museum in Vista.) On April 5, 1851, Lieutenant Couts married Ysidora Bandini, daughter of Juan Bandini, who was a prominent businessman in Old Town San Diego. In October of the same year Couts resigned his commission from the U.S. Army and soon after was appointed

Takkun, a 4-year-old Siamese mix, is looking for a new home. After suffering from an accidental injury, his previous owners could not provide the care he needed to feel better and had to make the difficult decision to give him up. Now that he has recovered from surgery, Takkun is feeling so much better and is ready to find a loving new home. According to Takkun’s previous family, he did well around children and other cats. If a dog is present in his new home, Takkun would prefer if the dog ignored him as he can be a bit afraid of them. He has never had any litter box issues, and is friendly around new people. His favorite things are soft blankets and balls. Takkun is described as a sweet, loving cat who can’t wait to find a new home to call his own. Takkun is available for adoption at San Diego Humane Society’s Escondido Campus at 3450 E Valley Parkway. To learn more about making him part of your family, please call (760) 888-2275.

This week is Fire Prevention Week and the Vista Fire Department is encouraging everyone to take note of this year’s Fire Safety Message: “Every Bedroom Needs a Working Smoke Alarm”. If you didn’t know that, you’re not alone. An online questionnaire distributed by the National Fire Protection Association showed that less than half of the respondents did not know that a smoke alarm should be installed in each bedroom of the home. A smoke alarm should be in every bedroom, outside each sleeping area, and on every level of the home. Fire prevention is avail-
able at CityofVista.com or by calling Vista Fire at 760.643.2801.

In 1853 he and Ysidora moved to North County on a tract of land known as the Guajome Grant, a wedding gift to his wife from her brother-in-law, wealthy Los Angeles businessman Abel Stearns. Now located in a large area of the presentday cities of Oceanside, Vista and as far east as San Marcos, the Guajome Land Grant took in a large portion of what previous were lands of the San Luis Rey Mission.

later life, Rancho Guajome was widely celebrated for its hospitality. Not only was it a stage stop for travelers, some used it as a destination. Ysidora entertained noted author Helen Hunt Jackson while she was collecting materials for her best-selling book, “Ramona.” Part of the story is supposed to have taken place in real life at the Guajome Rancho – especially some of the ill treatment of the Native Americans living and working around the rancho.
As Couts’ wealth grew, consisting largely of cattle, the passage of the fencing law eliminated “open range” grazing. This was a severe financial blow to him, and one from which he never fully recovered.

Refurberville is a Hit
For years we have accepted qualified tower and notebook PCs as trade-in credit on new PCs. We “refurb” them and sell them as “used” PCs. The demand for these “used” PCs often exceeds our supply. “Refurb” Windows7 PCs are popular because many home and business users find that new PCs with Win8 or Win10 offer no benefits and some disadvantages when compared to comparable Windows7 PCs. Hoping to be able to meet the demand for good Win7 PCs, we ordered some factory refurbished tower and notebook PCs as an experiment. We carefully selected only PCs of known quality and reliability and kept them segregated from our own “refurbs.” The experiment was a success and “Refurberville” was born.

their old PCs go to a “Microsoft Approved Refurbisher.” They are screened for problems, reformatted with a fresh Win7 Pro OS and certified for distribution. Last week we purchased a large quantity of “refurbished” Dell (Corporate) PCs. Regular readers may recall that we regard Dell and HP “retail” PCs as having marginal quality, reliability and customer service. “Corporate” PCs are a different animal. Dell and HP, like Apple, don’t design and build computers. They are basically distributers for the Chinese companies like Foxxcon who actually design and manufacture PCs. The “Corporate” models they purchase from these Asian manufacturers are quite different from the “retail” models in cost, quality, reliability and serviceability.
“Retail” models are loaded with “bloatware,” a term for the trial programs links, pop-ups, banners and assortment of other advertising products that other companies pay Dell/HP to have installed on your new “retail” PC. This advertising revenue allows Dell/HP to profit from the sale of cheap “retail” computers. “Retail” PCs come with the “Home” version of whatever Windows OS Microsoft happens to be pushing at the time, Warranties are one year and the components are markedly inferior to those in “corporate” models.
Win10. “Corporate” PCs cost significantly more than comparable “retail” models because they have no “bloatware,” are made with higher quality and reliability components and come with multiyear warranties. That’s why we selected Dell’s “Corporate” (Opteron) PCs for “Refuberville.”

The “Refurberville” desktop and notebook’s are just a completely satisfactory low cost option for many business and home needs.

The Paper • Page 16 • October 08 2015
Escondido, CA—In a 2002 issue of Neurosurgical Focus, a peerreviewed article was published by a Dr. Michael D. Martin, MD et al. in which the third sentence states: “The disc itself is active tissue that contains significant mechanisms for self-repair.” That article was published by a neurosurgeon and written directly for neurosurgeons.
“The Disc Itself Is Active Tissue...”
So what does that really mean to us? It tells us that the disc itself does have a God-given ability to heal and repair if provided the proper mechanisms for self-healing. There is a specific mechanism inherent in each of the spinal discs called the “pump mechanism of disc nutri-tion” (see Fig 1). When this mechanism is not working properly, the spinal discs will begin to die causing bulges, herniations, and eventually spinal stenosis.
The spinal disc is one of the very few tissues in the body that does not have a direct blood supply for circulation. The only way that the disc gets the circulation of water, oxygen and nutrients for self-repair is via this specific disc pump mechanism. What happens when you decrease cir-culation in any type of tissue, whether it be animal tissue, plant tissue or human tissue? Exactly, it begins to become weak and begins to degenerate.
Symptoms Are NOT The Problem
Now the symptoms of pain, numbness,
brown leaves are the plant’s problem? Of course not, the leaves turning brown is just a condition that is telling you that there is something wrong with the plant. The plant is unhealthy and needs water and nutrients. You could spray paint the leaves green but it just covers up the condition. The underlying problem still exists and will continue to produce brown leaves until you fix the actual problem. and tingling that most experience with bulging, herniated or degenerative discs are NOT the problem. The definition of a symptom: “something that indicates the existence of something else.” It is just like the dashboard of your car telling you that something is wrong (brake lights out, engine needs checked, overheating, etc.) Those lights that appear in your car dash are NOT the problem. You can remove the lights surgically or put a piece of duct tape over the lights but the problem will NOT be fixed...the problem is still present. Let’s take a look at a plant for example...if the leaves on a plant begin to turn brown, would you say that the
extent of your disc damage for only $70. This examination will consist of a detailed neurological evaluation, extensive orthopedic testing, and a detailed analysis of the findings of your evaluation. He will sit down with you and go over your condition with you in complete detail. You will know exactly what is causing all your pain (or other symptoms).
In your spine, when the pump mechanism of disc nutrition fails, the disc will begin to de-generate and become weak. This weakness in the disc is what produces the bulging, herniated, and degenerative discs.
The treatment that is provided at Dr. Heilman’s Spine and Neuropathy Care Center in Escondido is revolutionary and is specifically designed to artificially re-create the pump mechanism in the discs which allows the spinal discs to heal and repair. The best part of the treatment is that it uses no drugs, no injections, and no surgery. Plus it’s painless and many patients relax and fall asleep while undergoing the treatment. The amount of treatment needed to allow the discs to heal and repair varies from person to person and can only be determined after a detailed neurological and orthopedic evaluation. We do NOT accept everyone for treatment and will let you know if we can accept your case for treatment.
Dr. Stephen Heilman, DC at the Spine and Neuropathy Care Center in Escondido, CA will do a spinal disc severity examination to determine the
